So I'm not sure how much further I'll want to go with this, especially since I'm going back to college in a week, but I thought I'd at least share this WIP here. Also, let me go ahead and give credit to @Sriyam Swastik
for his map and scenario of a divided India and @oofo
for his map of the divided Germany based on talks between Churchill and Stalin.
The basic idea is based around two things; the creation of the Franco-British Union during WW2, and the formation of a Danubian Federation under the restored Habsburgs based on another of Churchill's proposals. Churchill's OTL proposal didn't include Czechoslovakia, but ITTL they decided to join the Federation
so that the borders can look nice
due to many anti-communists within Czechoslovakia viewing the Habsburgs as their best defense against becoming a Soviet puppet. Besides this, Bavaria, Baden, and Württemberg are also added to the Federation, with each of their royal houses restored as subnational monarchs within the Federation.
The Franco-British Union, meanwhile, pursues policies dedicated to preserving its colonial empire, with the Dominion system being extended to much of Africa as well as many of France's colonial possessions. The main exception to this is India, where the country is fragmented into several new states due to Gandhi not being as influential (with figures such as Bose leading the move for Indian independence ITTL), the British government not being completely compliant with Indian independence, and various disagreements continuing between the Indian National Congress, the Princely States, and Muslim groups within the former Raj.
During the Cold War, the Franco-British Union and Danubian Federation would form the backbone of the Bloc Imperial, which found itself in conflict with both the Soviet Union and United States. The split with the latter would develop over the course of the first decade of the Cold War due to disagreements between the Americans and Franco-British over the latter's colonial possessions, and a break would officially occur in 1956 over the Suez Crisis, as the Franco-British felt much more confident in their ability to ignore foreign pressure from the US due to the continued strength of their empire. This decision would hurt the Franco-British Union for a time due to it resulting in reductions in trade with the US, with this also coinciding with instability in the empire from British and French factions who opposed the continuation of the union. Despite these trials, however, the Franco-British Union would recover and retain its position as a great power equal to the US and USSR, and over time the other remaining European colonial powers such as Portugal and the Netherlands would come under the sphere of the Bloc Imperial due to having shared interests in maintaining their overseas holdings.
The Soviet Union has also managed to survive, and while it was gradually pushed to let go of its puppets in Bulgaria and Romania under Beria and Poland and Prussia under Gorbachev, it has retained its core holdings in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and since Valentin Varennikov's successful coup in 1991 the state has maintained adherence to Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy. The Sino-Soviet split occurred as it did IOTL, with these differences only growing wider with China's adoption of further economic liberalization under Deng Xiaoping and later leaders.
Following the Anglo-American split, the United States found itself largely as the only defender of liberal democracy left in the face of both radical socialism and reactionary imperialism. America has focused largely on reviving the concept of the Monroe Doctrine, defending the sovereignty of American nations from Soviet and Imperial influence (even if that means American collusion in elections and military action against those who oppose American hegemony). The US has also tried expanding its influence across the Pacific, supporting post-colonial states in South Asia such as the Philippines, Indonesia, and Dravida Nadu as well as reaching out to states and groups in Africa who stand opposed to Franco-British rule on the continent. In Europe, Ireland has also warmed up to America considerably, as despite the widespread growth of Catholicism in Britain leading to fewer religious disputes, tensions remain high between Ireland and the Franco-British Union, especially over the issue of Northern Ireland. This has led to Ireland largely falling into America's sphere of influence, acting as America's foothold in Europe.
Most interestingly, as China has continued to pursue liberalization economically, there have been rumors of Washington and Beijing seeking closer cooperation due to their shared rivals in Moscow and London/Paris. This is by no means official or non-controversial, of course, with most Chinese and American citizens both largely opposing such an alliance, but there is no doubt that business between the two countries has increased greatly over the past few decades, and with it new diplomatic links have been established. Whether anything will come of this or not is yet to be seen, especially as the two regimes both still have major ideological differences, but such an alliance would greatly shift the dynamics of the ongoing Cold War.
This is obviously a very rough scenario and map (as well as probably not very plausible), but it's largely just an idea I was interested in exploring. Between the proposals for a Franco-British Union during WW2 and the Suez Crisis as well as Churchill's proposals for a South German Federation following the defeat of the Nazis, it seemed like an interesting potential basis for a third power bloc in the Cold War. That being said, I feel like I could have been much more creative with the rest of the world. Africa could definitely use some more variety, and some more alternate outcomes in the Middle East may have been interesting as well (i.e. Iran being split between the monarchy in the south and a communist state in the north), but I thought I may as well share this idea that I had been working on so it could be opened up for discussion.
Also, just to be clear, I don't support imperialism or Marxist-Leninism despite having both of them survive ITTL, I'm just trying to make a somewhat interesting scenario. I hope that goes without saying but I figured it's better to be safe than sorry.
