Alan Banjo.
Differently from HL, Alan(and not Haran as his HL double) is spy working for Kempeitai(obviously much less feared and vicious than OTL's one) against treath against Japan.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes

Legend of the Galactic Heroes is a Japanese Anime about the conflict against the Esagerd empire and the Terran Union.
This anime is foundamental to japanese animation and take the place Gumdam owns in OTL; generated a lot of prequels,
The story is also a pice eof Alternate History, because Esagerd is a space empire born when German Empire lost the WWI.
Oppressed by England and France, Keiser Lothar left Earth for a new world Von Braun where they found a new space nation.

300 century after, Esegerd and Terra are clashing over boder worlds and a major war

This anime is interesting for many things; it's the first anime to have a war beteen human nations and not against aliens, and characters are not good or bad, but often a shade of gray.

The Socialist Worker Republic of Brazil is the most powerful and loyal ally of Usa in South America.
Brazil is a late come in American Worker Compact, binding togheter the socialist states in America; was, infact, in 1942 that Brasil Republic, technically a Brithis ally in war against Usa, collapsed due to debt crisis and slums poverty.

Like Usa, Brazil experienced a brif(but quite unbloody) civil war and a long(and much bloodier) periodo of purges and confiscations in 1942.
Brasil expanded its industries and retired its navy from the war, to, in 1943, enter in war against GB.

Evita and Juan Peron annunce to the crowd outside the "Casa Rosada" Juan Peron won the 1943 elections.

Argentina was a thorn in American sphere of influence since the second american revolution(or Syndacalist Revolution).
To the main spanish population were added italian and german migrants with strong feelings toward their homelands, and a wealthy, but not too oppresive(well, less oppressive than planters in Brazil),
bourgeoisie were the premise of 10 years of turmoil concluded with a cooup by Genela Juan Peron.

Military Polidce arresting communist and syndacalist opponents; the masses, in a fist time favourable with syndacalist revolution were conquered by Eve Dyarte de Peron, misterss and then wife, of Juan

Success was due to two factors: a fast execution of the Coup and the crowds called by Evita to Juan support, that stopped syndacalist party to act to fear to lose masses support.

Opponents arreested and gathered in front of Casa Rosada.
THE SECOND CHACO WAR: 1943-1946. Part I: Controrevolution in Chile

When first Chaco war concluded, in bolivian victory, United States, just turned syndacalist arrogated the right to push its revolution down south; bringing a syndacalist goverment in Asuncion(Paraguay).
In meantime Brazil and Perù, following Bolovia, turned communist and/or syndacalist isolating Argentina and Chile, the first allied with Germany and the latter with Great Britain.

From 1935-1941 the United States tryed to persuade, with force and diplomacy, Argentina and Chile to bow to the Monroe Doctrine and accept, at least, a syndacalist government.

Workers protest in a factory in Chile.
Because Chile had a little industrial base, strikes and propests hit hardly the country.

In 1937 a massive demonstration led to resignation of goverment and innauguration of Carlos Davilla and proclamation of Chilean Socialis Repubblic.

In Argentina a part of the militia and people sided apertly with communist party, but also if they try a coup in 1938, the coup failed because Buenos Aires people didn't partecipate in uprising.
This leadeing directly to a transitional democratic government and election of General Juan Peron in 1943

The fist act of the second Chaco war was not played in Chaco Broeal but in Chile.
Under heavy british involvement, the navy declared decayed the chilean socialist government and seized the docks of San Antonio.

British warships entered in port of San Antonio to secure sealanes with Australia and India.

The first nuclear explosion produced by Japan in 1953 on the atoll of Kure
"La Triplice": Nuclear Sun!

in 1952 the empire of Japan decided to try harder to achive nuclear fission.
After a lot of failures, during the '40s, kempeitai experimental division tried a lot of times to achive a nuclear fission, but failed. particulary (in)famous was experiment Kaya in which was involved a old 1939 class 2 destroyer(Kaya), the experiemnt involved a portable fusion reactor to have a limited and controlled explosion, but nothing happened(may be a loss of radioactivity and the death of the crew, but this matter is still under maximum secret in Japan)
2nd class destroyer Kaya, it is said that this ship become invisible fot 13 minutes before to appear again: Conspiracy theoristes accused Japan to have try teleportation because the fate of the crew was never reveled.

In 1951 octor Nishina, before to die, leave a paper in which actually made possible the fission of the bomb.
Nishina, director of the Rikken, or institute of physical and chemical reserch, become the father of nuclear weapons, but died before to see detonate its fist child.
United Korea.png

The Flag of United Korea, a state formed after China defeated Japan in Manchurian war during the '40s.
China won also thanks with the help of Germany and the war was costly, but eventually they won.
Korea is a modern state. A strongly conservative state between the two most powerfull states of Asia: The Empire of Japan and the Republic of China.
Korea is strongly conservative, and staunchly allied with Germany to counterbalance Japan, allied with U.K and a strong growing China.

Miklos Horty in his last pic before to die in 1957.

Miklos Horty was the regent for Hungarian throne during the years after the WWI and the years of Russo-German war of '40s
With a use of force, coercion and propaganda was able to retain the power in a more and more fragmented country.
At the end of his life, only the person of the apostolic king, Otto, succeded at only 10yrs old to his father Charles, seems to avoid the country to fall apart.

The main problems of Hungary were Josip Broz, a successeful general and politician from banate of Croatia, and Rumanian protests in Transylvanya becoming day after day more loud and violent(thaks, also, to the repression of Hungarian Army)

Rumanian nationalists near Sibiu, around 1947.

Josip Broz - Commander in chief, and later, Ban of Croatia.

The funeral of the last Apostolic King of Greater Hungary. Otto I Von Hasburg.
His long ruler as only ruler of the divise kingdom avoided the collapse of Ungary.
Otto was a good ruler, he tryed(and failed) to ease the ethnic and religiouse tensions in his kingdom, and was able to dismantle the fascist state created by Horty.
Paradoxically, the removal of fastist state, helped the Serbians, Rumenians and other foreign minorities to claim pieces of the country when he died in 2011.
The end of Hungary: Slovakia

Some days after the death of the Hungarian king Otto, in many cities of the Slovakian autonomous province started massive manifestations in favor of indipedence.
Much of them shouting "In name of the Sixth Brigade"

Slovakia was one of the most complex points of Hungarian Kingdom.
A fist try of secession happened when Horthy died in 1957. I
The years goin thought 1958-1969, years of great international turmoil for the so called "Young Revolution" or "The Red Wave" that interested Europa, Asia and America and left a lot of rubbles. Germany itself was shoked, Hungary was quite destroyed, but saved by Otto.

In 1958, some months after Horthy death, the sixth brigade of Hungarian army marched on Bratislava (hung. Pozsony) and tryed to assault the governor palace and proclaim the indipendence of their country.

The Sixth Brigade in front of the governo palace of Bratislava while reading a list of requests to the governor, the premier and the king.

Mainly composed by jews, the Sixth brigade was one of the rbigades that suffered in the Russian war. Often send to attack without information or support(sometimes also rising questions in the Great German Reich). When Horthy died, and his political and ultra-religiouse dictatorchip ended, not having confidence in the new King Otto, still realatively young at the time(35years old, but no one ruled directly, he was only a figurehead for Horthy and his regime).
This event sparkle a full fledged civil war in Hungary, nearly costing the collapse to the monarchy.
The war in Yugoslavia Vol1

Josip Broz, Ban of Croatia. He come to power after the death of Horthy and ruled Croatia and Bosnia like an indipendent state with the benediction(also if not with the pelasure) of newly crowned King Otto.

He was deeply loved by Croatians, Muslim Bosnians and Kosso Albanians who saw him, and not the king, as the true defence against Serbian irredentism was becomeing, again, a threat fueled by russian refugiates. In this pic the hearse travels trought Sarajievo(official capital of the United Banate of Crotia and Bosnia-Herzegovina) whatched by a great number of people, more concerned for they own future, than for the death of the Ban.
The Reichluftflotte

The first Donnar class aviojet built in Peenemünde in late '40s.
Between the many programs of aereo-war superiority, Donnar was not only one of the first, but one of the most effective.
If the one-man jet bomber resulted, practically, ineffective for the progress of German-Russian war; however it become the cornerstone of a new range of jet aircraft in the next years.
The Second Russian War: The Jews

The Jews of Warsaw were seclued in a special area of the city, a Ghetto. The immage is taken some days before the city exploded in revolt against the russian in 1944

Warsaw was occupied by Russian 4th Army in late 1940, after the Imperial Russian Supreme Commad took the german east armies off guards.
The War, lasting from 1940 to 1948 was bitter and cruel(also if not as OTL one) the ruling Russian "party", in truthness a coalition of interests between the army, land class and Church high echelons, the so-called All-Russia Party, had no clear idea to do about the large jewish population of the occupied areas. In many cases the answer was "limited" to creation of ghettos, but in others the Russian Death Troopers and Black Cossacks used violence and fired true pogroms.
(We must noted that abslutley nothing compared to OTL WWII and Nazi madness and cruelty...)

Konstantin Rodzaevsk: Supreme Marshall of Russian Empire.
Technically Rodzaevsk was ruling on behalf of the young Tsar Vladimir(the boy was only 2yo when war started), but the fact transformed Russia in a military dictatorship trying to cut the power of the Diet.
Altrought Russian never become totatlitarian dictaorship(like Urss or Nazi Germany, the power and prestige of the tsar was too high), the ARP powers was very great.
The New China - Heavenly...Republic?

Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek delivering his famous speech in Nanjing, announching the victory over Japan in Korean War.

Germany was not able to sustain the Ottoman Empire after the Great War, the crumbling of the leave the place to a republic with Kemal Pasha as its chief.
Those events in Middleast mirrored those in China, where the Manchese Qing dynasty was overturned by the republicans. Differently from Ottoman Empire, China didn't benefit(?) european intevention, leaving the task to Japanese forces.

Japanese Army Enter in Harbin, early '20s

The Japanese intevention sparkled a civil war between the agrarian party lead by Mao Tzetung and the Kuomitang lead my Chang Kai Shek .

Mao Testung was the leader of the Agrarian Party(in Full: Federation of Agrarian Syndacates Party).

Altough aided by american volunteers(the famouse Flying Tigers), the German military support to Chang was too great and strong. In the end Mao was forced to leave Mainland China and create a republic in far east and then, beaten again in the '40s, leaving the country for United States in what was called "The Long March to the sea".

The Fling tigers: a squadron send by the United States Syndacalist Party to aid Mao in the war. They are regarded as heroes, but in the end couldn't match the power of Reich Luftflotte

Japan tried to stop the growing of China, but German military aid and mass of chinese(some veterans of the long civil war) and Manchuria and Korea were lost to Chang in 1948. For that date Manchukuo has been occupied and only the Imperial Fleet stopped the Germans to assoult directly the japanese fatherland islands.

Japan lost Manchuria and Korea, but Germany failed to save monarchy in China and Manchuria, also because Japanese goverment offeder Taiwan to exiled last Qing Emperor Puyi

Korea is strongly conservative, and staunchly allied with Germany to counterbalance Japan, allied with U.K and a strong growing China.
After the Asian War (Asiatischer Krieg) and victory over Japan, while China was fighting its own little civil war, Korea was at least, after nearly 50 years theb Joseon Dynasty returned to the throne of the Empire of Korea they were forced to leave in early '900.
Unfortunately Prince Kang, also know with roayl name of Prince Uihwa, didn't be able to sit on the htone of his father because he died in August before the complete definition of peace treaty.

Prince Kang at the start of Japanese invasion of China. He fought in Nanjing Conference army forces. Died before to return on the hrone in august 1955.

So, the new Emperor of Korea would become his son become Emperor. Unfortunately Korean Imperial Family was riped with divion and because Geon, the first in line served with Japanese Empire, the throne's burden passed to his brother Yi Un that become Emperor with the name of Uimin.

Emperor Uimin become the fist emperor of Korea after liberation from Japan.
A "Heavenly Republic" sounds like the right-wing version of a "people's republic".

Adding some nice-sounding name to your nation means it will be a terrible place to live.

The idea of the Kims being movie directors in another world is something I can get behind.
