The PRC is also distinctly Maoist. I think that because of that distinction, a more socialist ROC is legitimate to use ROC colors.It is the RoC, not the PRC, not all the countries in the alliance are communist. Turkey and China are nationalist.
Remember the last time the USSR made an alliance with an unsavory, powerful, nationalistic state?

Very glad to see you thought it out! It's refreshing to see someone that can use "Alliances of Opportunity" to make a realistic setup for the next conflict instead of just "bad guys work together"Definitely, if the USSR and China win the war, they are almost guaranteed to split over ideological differences and the issue of Chinese claims on part of the Tajik SSR. The main thing driving China and Russia together is shared enmity for Japan and concern over Japanese expansionism in mainland Asia. The Soviet alliance with Kemalist Turkey is mostly out of convenience due to Turkey's advantages as a trading partner, strategic control over the Black Sea, and mutual poor relations with the British and French.
After Peter the Great's devastatingly successful central and eastern Asia campaigns. He reigned as the Great Heavenly Khan of almost half of Eurasia. A fever, however, was all that was required to bring it all down. And bring it down it did. Leaving the Empire as completely bankrupt and disorderly as he did it would be impossible for anyone to take his title. As a result, his generals split his Empire up into several Principalities And Tsardoms.
The Principality of Chorson was one of those successor states.
This is the first part of a larger series of maps depicting the fallen Empire of Peter the Great. Whilst on campaign in Central Asia he fell off his horse and thought himself to be the reincarnation of Genghis Khan. Acting as any self-respecting Genghis Khan he bought every horse on the continent and conquered all of Persia, Central Asia and China. Only stopping his conquests once he meet the Oceans or lands unsuitable for cavalry.
So...he went all Roman von Ungern-Sternberg? (Plus Alexander.)
What is Korea like?
The idea itself sounds pretty fun. (Cue Swedish rising. I can see them taking advantage of Peter's madness and expanding the Russian borders eastward so far and it all coming undo. )
Korea isn't very different from OTL Korea during this time period. They do however have quite a substantial Russian speaking and mixed population due to soldiers marrying locals and wartime shananagans.
The court language is Mongolian and most of the ruling class are former high ranking personnel in the Russian army. So mostly Russians and Mongolians.
Both Sweden and the Commonwealth have a field trip over in Eastern Europe once the government collapses. Barely any fighting age men remain in those areas after the shit hits the fan.
I am curious as to how Peter the Great, or should I say, the Great Heavenly Khan, broke the back of Great Qing. I am not quite sure that any great technological disparity between the two exists yet, especially before the 19th century, after the Industrial Revolution.Snippity snip
