Jewish American gangster Meyer Lansky outside his Brooklyn office, 1958. The stories of Jewish mobsters in the US were widely printed in the Nazi press during the 1940s and 1950s to create a link between 'internationalist Jewry' and 'the corrupting influence of organized crime.' Meyer was somewhat indifferent to the plight of his fellow Jews in Europe, something that earned him the enmity of both native born American Jews and Jewish refugees. This cold attitude motived a Jewish refugee from the Netherlands by the name of Arend Holtkempt to join his gang as an FBI informant. Holtkempt's information helped bring down Lansky's empire by 1959 by leaking information about interstate bookmaking operations and drug deals.

A Hitler Youth member executing a suspected spy at a train station in Kiel during the German Civil War, 1959. During the Reich's final years, Hitler Youth cells took over buildings to use as ad hoc bases. Any unauthorized civilians found near these locations were assumed to be infiltrators and either beaten or simply shot outright.

A delegation of Malagasy leaders in Pretoria for a meeting with British and South African statesmen, 1952. British administration of Madagascar was a source of major frustration among the population, something that London was fully aware but reluctant to fully address. The island was of a great strategic importance to the Toronto Accord's efforts in the Indian Ocean. However, the yearning for independence from European rule only grew once Madagascar was released from French control and fell into Britain's sphere of influence. By the early 1950s, the Toronto Accord felt little recourse but to engage with the Malagasy on the topic of Madagascar's independence. The situation worried many Europeans in the southern part of the continent, who felt uncomfortable seeing native Africans engaged in high level discussions with the heads of Western powers.

IJA guards overseeing Korean and Chinese prisoners at Gunkanjima (Battleship Island), 1944. The island served as a factory fueled by slave labor throughout the Pacific War. It fell to the Allies in mid 1945, with the Japanese losing control to a prisoner uprising supported by USMC Raiders.

Marshal Erwin Rommel at the Eagle's Nest to meet with Hitler, 1946. Rommel was tasked with fortifying the western borders of Germany's new empire, working closely with Organization Todt to construct the Atlantic Wall. Despite his pride in the fortifications network, the threat of Toronto Accord special forces constantly worried him. "Special warfare units" were constantly mentioned in his threat assessments to Berlin, specifically the British SAS, American OSS and the remnants of the French Foreign Legion. In spite of his popularity with the German public, Rommel was bogged down in constant power games with the SS as the German Civil War increased in intensity.

A mushroom cloud overlooking the skyline of Las Vegas, 1955. The 'casino city' was close to a test range where nuclear weapons were being tested. Vegas's very existence was lambasted in Nazi propaganda, displayed as a sign of moral corruption and decadence. The influence of the Jewish gangster Bugsy Siegel in the building of Las Vegas was also frequently mentioned.
 
Asia is largely more democratic than in our own timeline. The ROC won the Chinese Civil War and began to democratize beginning in the mid 1970s although Chiang Kai Shek instituted a massive purge of suspected communists before retiring. Korea is unified under a democratic government as well, before that it was ruled as a dictatorship by Syngman Rhee. As for the Philippines, I'm not quite sure.
How about our country taking off as the premiers of the economic miracle or as a part of Asian Tigers?

Rioters in Taiwan burning a police station in response to abusive behavior by the newly installed Kuomintang authorities, 1948. The island's economy almost collapsed as the result of mismanagement, with many previously Japanese owned industries being passed into the hands of Chiang's cronies who discriminated against native Taiwanese. ROCA soldiers also acted poorly towards the locals, with many complaints of public drunkenness, violent behavior and sexual harassment of local women. It took half a year to put down the uprising, but Chiang ensured that the next officials sent to govern the island were on a shorter leash.

The Timberline Lodge in the mountains of Oregon. The hotel played host to a meeting between President Macarthur and other leaders of the Toronto Accord in the winter of 1954 to discuss the possible inclusion of Cuba into the alliance following the fall of the Batista regime.

Kripo officer and SS Sturmbanfuhrer Xavier March during the 1958 Fuhrertag. March was a detective in the Berlin Kripo during the events of Operation Flood and its aftermath, working to ensure the safety of Berlin's residents alongside his fellow officer Rudi Jaeger. Examination of his Gestapo file by the occupying authorities cleared him of any suspicion, as his SS rank was an honorary one and he was already being investigated for his lack of enthusiasm toward the regime. In the years following the fall of the Reich, March helped root out multiple criminal networks in Berlin with connections to the previous regime. He held the position of Berlin's chief of police from 1974 to 1994.
 
Builders of the Fatherland monument.png

The 'Builders of the Fatherland' monument in Berlin, 1953. The statue was considered the greatest work of professor Josef Thorak, who oversaw its construction from 1947-1948. It was meant to symbolize the glory of the German laborer. Though rumors are unconfirmed, it is believed that Thorak drew inspiration from Soviet statues. The statue was torn down following Operation Flood.
