    The USS Eisenhower on exercise near Hawaii, 1979. The American entry into the Great Pacific War on the side of the Entente was a double-edged sword; on the one hand, the American navy and air force gave the Entente the edge needed to overcome the Japanese, on the other, the United States regained all of its territory that had been lost during the 2nd ACW and became the leading economic and military power of the Pacific as the Japanese had been defeated and the Entente nations were in no position to oppose their erstwhile ally, due to the strain that the war had placed on their militaries and economies. As such, the United States moved quickly, establishing relationships with the nations of the former Co-Prosperity Sphere. In 1990, the United States would admit Hawaii and the Commonwealth of the Marianas as states.

    Been meaning two once I get greater context by playing the game, but basically. After the second Weltkreig, six super powers would rise to compete for dominance, and with more anachronistically advanced technology, nukes were made irrelevant with the militarized space program, making WK3 more likely. Which is what happened in 2000.

    The world is divided into Six superpowers:

    The United Commonwealth of Nations, which takes up the entire Anglosphere, France, West Africa and parts of Latin America. All the major entities in it have adopted authoritarian democracy due to the influence of monarchs, who now rule the homeland but not the UCN. Culturally they are very conservative due to the red scare, so there's plenty of pre war America vibes with more modern elements.

    The MittelEuropa Reichspakt, a European Union bound together by German appointed kings and queens, and later beuracrats when monarchy fell out of fashion. Decolonization came smoothly with the formation of the MittelAfrika Reichspakt after the mittelafrika war against Goering. While more progressive, there is plenty of internal strife in a Reichstag between different factions in an increasingly divided Germany

    The Pan Asian Pacific Co Prosperity Sphere: While significantly more moderate than OTL, they are called militant merchants for a reason. The adherence to Pan Asian ideology allows greater acceptance of Japanese economic dominance as the zaibatsu dominated Diet exploits the resources of it's member nations to sell the finished goods back to them under the auspices of fair trade.

    The South American Communes was the home to many Syndicalist leaders fleeing Europe and America, and have created a worker's paradise in the Latin jungles, so says the propaganda. In reality it's but another totalist empire that closely monitors it's syndicates and punishes workers collectives that don't meet quota. There's enough to go around however as long as you obey the rules.

    The Renewed Russian Empire, a National Totalist state that makes Brasilia look like Galt's Gulch. Slavery, eugenics, torture, obliteration of the self you name it. The only mercy you can have is if your sent to a work camp in the central Asian vassal states, where you can work off your crimes so you can toil in a factory or farm, just with a tad more movement.

    The Coalition of Arabian Republics (wip), the smallest, newest and most reasonable of the big six. Pan Arabia has made a lot of money and influence selling oil to the other powers, however with the increasing energy independence and rising tention, the CAS is in a precarious position where they'll either lose power, or be crushed by another nation.

    That's the darkest interpretation of my head canon anyway, with a conventional WK3 creating havoc on the social order leading to a gritty cyberpunk setting

    Damn...and I thought my scenario was depressing(much of Europe minus Italy, Spain and the Scandinavian countries divided between Jacobins and Natpops), through it ends in a somewhat bittersweet note as Jacobinite France manages to reform along Syndicalist lines and the Eurasian alliance completely collapses.

    In the moderate version there's less dysyopia elements. But there's a lot of jostling and rivalries that occasionally lead to proxy wars and intervention

    Japanese and Transmur forces do battle against Syndicalist Philippine troops outside Manila.
    The Japanese Invasion of Hawaii (Codename: Operation Azuma Sutroraiku) and the Japanese Invasion of The Philippines (Codename: Operation Minamikazi) was executed by army units of The Empire of Japan, The Admiralty of Transmur, and Manchukuo against the forces of the Philippines Syndicalist Republic and lasted from January 3rd, 1937 to February 18th, 1937 and from March 21st to May 3rd, 1937 respectively. After the Military Junta, led by Douglas MacArthur, ruling the United States collapsed in late 1936 and Civil War enveloped the country the Empire of Japan, already looking outward for areas of expansion found a tempting target in the former American holdings of the Hawaiian Kingdom, who had declared their independence, and the Philippines Syndicalist Republic who had overthrown the colonial American regime. After seizing the strategically vital island of Guam the Japanese Kodoha faction which controlled the government began to advocate for an expansion of the Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere into these newly freed territories. In December of 1936 Japan began to press the Kingdom of Hawaii to join the Co-Prosperity Sphere to little success. The Kingdom was quickly slipping into anarchy following its independence and Japanese spies in the Pacific States of America relayed information of the two warming relations in preparation for a declaration of friendship. Japanese military planners, fearing a new American power-bloc in the Pacific Ocean drew up plans to invade the fledgling Kingdom from bases in Guam. Finally, on January 3rd, 1937 Japanese Marines supported by the 1st Fleet led by famed Admiral Yamamoto landed on Midway Island which was occupied by the Kingdom of Hawaii; and occupied it bloodlessly. The unwarranted and unprovoked attack drew ire from many nations including the Kaiserreich, the Qing Empire, the Russian Republic, the Pacific States of America and the Kingdom of Siam yet Japan paid them no mind. The Queen of Hawaii called up a rag-tag militia to defend the Hawaiian Islands but morale in Honolulu was low. After another month of gathering supplies and men Yamamoto's fleet appeared in Pearl Harbor as planes from the aircraft carriers Asahai, Hirohito, Fukkatsu, and Akagi hit targets up and down the chain destroying the tiny Hawaiian Air Force on the ground. The surface ships of First Fleet surprised the small Hawaiian fleet at Pearl Harbor and sunk most of the ships in the harbor, with the rest being seized and scuttled by the landing force. When the Japanese Marine Corps landed in the occupied Harbor they met only a token resistance of die hard Hawaiian monarchists but they were quickly swept aside by the trained men of the IJA. With that the Queen of Hawaii was imprisoned and the islands were formally annexed into the Empire. The Emperor of Japan Hirohito called it a monumental victory that was only the first of many and said "Now, the Rising Sun will truly reach its greatest heights yet". After that Japanese military planners then turned their eyes southward to the Syndicalist dictatorship that was forming in the Philippines.

    The Philippine Syndicalist Republic, being Syndicalist, was barred from joining the Co-Prosperity Sphere which left only one option the Japanese could see, invasion. Yet the Japanese still needed a reason to justify the invasion to their own people as the Syndicalist Party was a major underground force in Japan. Japanese ships began to sail into Philippine waters, Japanese planes based in Formosa began to regularly violate Philippine airspace yet still the Philippine military still did nothing witch frustrated the Japanese to no end. As February turned into March and March began to end the Japanese still had no cause for invasion and their puppet in Manchukuo was preparing to invade the Qing Empire which would force a Japanese invasion as well, time was running short. Finally however a Zero was flying over Manila when a overzealous AA gunner shot it down, killing the pilot in a fiery blaze and supposedly leaving a stain on Japanese military honor that had to be avenged quickly. The Japanese people, who were told the Zero was simply lost in a storm and not gathering intel and provoking a Philippine response as it was, rallied behind their government and it was not long after a declaration of war was handed down to the archipelago. The same day the Second and Third Fleets began to patrol the waters around and between the Philippine Archipelago and after a pitched battle off the coast of Luzon established unchallenged naval supremacy. What followed next was a Japanese/Transmur landing at Laoag where they were met by Philippine Army units supported by volunteers from the Khanate of Mongolia. The battle was hard, but after the Second Fleet appeared off the coast and the Japanese Air Force in the skies the enemy melted away into the woods. What followed was a near oppositionless occupation of Luzon and the country as a whole. Another titanic victory was declared and many expected the war to be over as troops began to filter back to ports to be transported out of the country and let a more friendly government take over policing duties. However, as Japanese troops congregated in Manila attacks were reported from cities across Luzon. Before Japan could even respond information reached them that ten Philippines divisions were doing marching on Manila supported by five Mongolian divisions, nearly equal to the amount of Japanese forces in the city. Rather than retreat the Japanese dug in with the Transmur Army being assigned to reserve duty as the enemy approached and finally the enemy arrived on the outskirts of the city at the end of April and the battle was met. The Second Fleet provided ground support, and the air was filled with Japanese planes yet still the battle was a nail biter as tactics were nearly useless in the close city streets. The Japanese were able to however hold off until Manchukuo landed on the north of Luzon with a large force and cut off the enemy, sandwiching them between their enemies. With them being attacked from the front and rear the balance of power quickly shifted in the favor of Japan and over the next three days the resurgent Syndicalist threat was destroyed. Japan spread out its forces on the island to support the local forces and resistance was fought whenever it was met but for all intents and purposes the Philippines became little more than a puppet of the growing Japanese Empire.

    hard to say as to all but you could easily move some of the conflicts Egypt has in 0.6 to the future, such as between Iran or Arabia(depending on whom the side with), conflicts in their southern Sudan region, and the Ethiopian empire. The latter of which could easily be moved to a cold war expy especially if you got Mittleafrika going boom, what with the both realms looking to ally with local warlords and kingdoms and so on. :)

    An Ethiopian Egyptian war gives me late 70s early 80s vibes. Indochina kicks out Germany only to be intervened by Japan, similar events happen in German Asian territories contributing to cold war. Afghan Indian war, MittelAfrika war to dispose Goering, second Russo Japanese war That's all I can think of

    The Battle of Dehli City, the largest battle of the 1971 Diwali Offensive was a major conflict occurring during the climax of The South Asian War, A 10 year conflict involving the military forces of the Combined Syndicates of America, the Syndicalist Union of Britain, The United Communes of Australasia, and the Bharatiya Commune, fighting against the forces of the United Kingdom of the Indian Raj, aided by the forces of the Riechspakt, primarily the powers of Qing China and Imperial Germany. Although the battle ended in a crushing Syndicalist victory, with only around 4000 Syndintern casualties, the majority of them wounded, as opposed to over 57000 Imperial casualties, the majority of whom were killed in action, the brutal fighting recorded by war correspondents helped turn public opinion in Britain, Australasia, and America towards returning the troops from aiding the Bharatiya Commune, resulting in a stalemate that allowed the Indian Raj to gain the upper hand on the surrounded Bharatiya Commune in later decades.

    The battle began on October 22nd, 1971, when 10000 men of the Imperial Army of the Raj, aided by over 80000 members of the Assam Rifle Frontier Militia, wrested control of the city of Dehli from the forces of the Bhaarat Liberation Army during the opening stages of the Diwali Offensive. The Syndicalist peacekeeping forces in the nation, mostly comprised of British, American, and Australasian military personnel, quickly counter-attacked with a multi-national force comprised mostly of the American 1st Marine Division, the British 1st Red Guard Division (Grenadier) and the Australasian 1st Cavalry Division, aided by elements of the Bharatiya Communal Army. What followed was a brutal battle of close quarters combat, as the Marines, Red Guards, and Armored Cavalrymen took the city back block by block, inflicting casualty ratios of over 14:1 on their Imperial opponents, eventually taking the city back by early December 1971. Despite the Diwali Offensive being a major military defeat for the Raj, almost completely sapping the Assam Rifles of their combat ability for the rest of the South Asian War, it had a profound effect on the American and Allied governments and shocked the citizenry of those countries, which had been led to believe by its political and military leaders that the Raj was being defeated and incapable of launching such an ambitious military operation. The "Christmas of Blood" that followed in the aftermath of the Offensive, where the thousands of British, American, Australian, and Allied Military casualties were revealed to the people of the Syndintern, support for the war in India waned considerably, and the foreign militaries of the Syndicalist Internationale were pulled out of South Asia by Fall 1973.

    US Marines in the Philippines.jpg
    US Marines in the Philippines, 1978. The US entry into the Great Pacific War shocked the Japanese and their allies, who were weakened following the Entente's Operation Titan. American ships and troops overwhelmed isolated Japanese posts in the Pacific, even retaking the heavily fortified Fiji Islands. By mid-1978, American troops were landing on Luzon, pushing toward Manila while the Japanese attempted to stave off the American advance. These attempts were undermined by Filipino guerrillas, as the population rose up against the Japanese colonial government, aiding American and Entente forces by sabotaging Japanese supply lines and destroying vital infrastructure throughout the islands. By January 1980, the Japanese Imperial Army had been reduced to a series of holdouts in northern Luzon after losing the Battle of Manila.

    My timeline is actually more moderate than what I said but it's not peaceful. Here's a list of wars that I could think of
    West African Civil War
    [​IMG]

    Entente peacekeepers secure the port regions of Abidjan, Union of West Africa, 1991

    The with the French Civil War and the rise of the Commune of France, millions of Republican French fled to the Francophone colonies in Algeria. However with the end of the Second Welt Krieg and the division of France between Entente and German Spheres of influence, as well as lingering Syndicalist sympathies. Many French citizens were forced to stay in the colonies, with later generations adopting a Francophone identity, decolonization would result in French West Africa being consolidated as the Union of West Africa. However tension between native Africans, Algerians and Colonials would remain high under the white dominated government. Further concessions would be given over time as more Africans were appointed positions, however they were rarely popular and accused of being European puppets.

    The West African War started on December 24th, 1987 when the National Patriotic Front led by Charles Taylor initiated a military coup against the Samuel Doe, the first African president of the UWA during his reelection night. The war officially ended in 1997 when the last NPF cell in the Saharan desert was eradicated, but for the last 10 years was a brutal occupation that saw the conscription of child soldiers, many attrocities, and the middle third of the country to be declared a no man's land by the WeltBund.
    MittelAfrika War
    [​IMG]
    June 15, 1963 German soldiers peer out of the trench to evade Loyalist snipers during fighting in Congolese Jungle, Mittelafika
    Ever since the First Welt Krieg, the German Empire had little concern on the minute details of the going on of it's colonies, only that resources and cheap goods arrive on time. With the end of WK2 Germany needed these resources more than ever to recover from it's depression with the devastation brought to West Germany and to replace the materials lost pushing back the Russian State. Greater oversight was required to acquire the necessary materials, while they had known about the brutal colonial rule under Goering, it was not brought directly to their attention until 1950. When Kaiser William demanded that he be removed from office, Goering closed borders and seceded from the Empire.

    While most of Mittelafrika was easily secured in a matter of weeks, it was very core of Goering's empire that proved to be the hardest. Vizekong loyalists would keep the German Heer awake at night with guerrilla warfare, ambushes, and traps. Even with heavy bombing of Goeringsburg his troops merely dispersed into the forest like rats. For 15 years the German Federate Union was pressured by the international community to rectify it's gross human rights negligence, however presure back home would force Germany to withdraw from the Congo, and the region has become a pariah state since then.

    Great Chinese War
    [​IMG]

    Artist depiction of People's Liberation Forces in the battle of Chengdu before the armistice in 1953

    After the white peace with Germany and the cession of the Far Eastern territories to Japan in 1947, the Russian state would go on to provide support to any potential allies to the motherland. From the former Mongolian empire arose the People's Republic of China to appose the Japanese backed Unified Republic of China. Both sides had it in their heads that they were the true China and the other were but puppets (they were both half right). In 1950 a URC training patrol got lost behind the PRC border, when met with a PRC patrol, both sides thought they were invading the other, leading to the first shots fired in the war. Neither the Empire of Japan or the Russian State were ready for another protracted war after the Second Weltkrieg, so they both temporarily cut ties with them and suspended membership while providing covert support. The war would rage for three years until a joint Entente/Reichspakt intervention would force the signing of the Chengdu treaty in 1953. China still remains divided to this day, and many exports see the agitation as a potential flash point of Welt Krieg 3.

    Anti-War Protests in Germany, 1967
    German intervention in Deutsch Mittelafrika was initially heavily supported by the German populace, viewing it as a necessary step to keep control of the countries steadily growing colonies in Africa, Asia, and Oceania. Fighting Hermann Goering, viewed as an extremist by the public, was supported as a necessary struggle for the Germans as a "good versus evil" war.

    the German Empire in the 1950s and early 60s was in its golden age. the coalition of Mitteleuropa had successfully defeated the Russians to the East and the Syndicalists to the West, becoming the hegemon of continental Europe. Its allies, Austria-Galicia-Hungary-Illyria, Bulgaria, its subject kingdoms in Eastern Europe saw explosive growth. For Mitteleuropa, the 50s-1963 would be viewed in a nostalgic, almost romantised point of view for decades to come. Mitteleuropa saw rapid economic growth and the massive rise of the middle class. The Autobahn and other European highway systems allowed for easy transportation around continental Europe. WK veterans went to college and return home to waiting brides, becoming the leaders of society across Europe. German pop culture was exported around the continent. A new form of music hailing from Russia, nicknamed Schaukeln, spread across beginning in 1956 across Mitteleuropa among youth. The fast pace ran in complete contrast to the slow adult contemporary style that was popular. For the older population of Deutschland held on to their mostly traditionalist and aristocratic ways. People were clean cut and clean living at the time. Normalcy had fallen on Mitteleuropa. In the 60s, some youth had began to grow restless, however.

    In 1962, Hermann Goering, administrator of Mittelafrika attempted independence. Kaiser Louis Friedrich and Chancellor Konrad Adenauer deployed troops in Mittelafrika. Mittelafrika would be quickly taken, but little did the Kaiser and the Chancellor now that Hermann was in for the long run, hiding in the jungle. The military draft that was put in place after WK1 and came to use in WK2 had resulted in all young men being required to serve. As the Mittelafrikan war ran longer, German youth, tired of their clean cut ways, unhappy with the draft, and dreaming of more liberties began to protest across the nation. While opposition to the war was initially limited to supporters of the SDP, opposition grew as daily reports of carnage in Afrika were shown on the Fernseher. In 1963, when the war was still young, Konrad Adenauer died in his sleep to the collective shock of the German public. He had lead German through a Weltkrieg and the subsequent economic miracle.

    His handpicked successor, the famous general Erwin Rommel, promised to defeat Goering at all costs (except nuclear). The mass expansion of the war galvanised the youth further, with Universitaet students attempting to avoid the war at all costs, while young working class folk begrudgingly were drafted. in late 1966, Hermann Goering's forces went on the offensive, fighting Imperial forces at all locations at all times. The Offensive, named the All Saint's Day Offensive after the day it began, caught the Germans off guard. The high casualities rates among German forces were shocking to normal citizens. Erwin Rommel's popularity collapsed among German citizens. Nationwide protests in Berlin saw over a million march in the "Marschieren gegen den Krieg". Notable slogans, such as "Nie wieder Krieg!" and "liebe, kein Krieg", were spread by the protestors to eventually the common folk. Among many young protesters, a new counterculture "Boehme" went against the clean shaven 50s culture began out of Oriental philosophy and the anti-war "Liebe, kein Krieg" ethos. The movement was popularised by the Schaukeln group die Kaefer, who reached international fame.

    In 1968, Erwin Rommel had announced that he would not be running in another term in the subsequent election that year. Helmut Schmidt of the SPD would win the election for the Chancellorship running on an anti-war campaign. Ironically that same year Hermann Goering would die of a surprise fit of malaria, dividing the Mittelafrikan forces, allowing for the Germans to successfully expand the war. In 1969, the last of Goering's Schutztruppen would surrender. Also ironically, Helmut, who ran on an anti-war platform, technically got peace through expanding the war.

    Helmut Schmidt would under see the reorganisation and decolonisation of Mittelafrika into new countries, such as Kamerun, Tanganyika, Kongo, Niger, Njassaland, Togoland, Ubangi-Schari, Suedwest-Afrika and die Goldkueste. Civil liberties would be expanded, with the Bundestag receiving a greater role in government and the right to vote being expanded to all over 18. Schooling would be more liberalised and society demilitarised. The Mitteafrikan War would be a collective shock for the German populace, ending the normalcy and golden age of the period 0f postWK2-63, and beginning the rocky 1970s.

    Pop culture of the Kaiserreich
    [​IMG]

    Kantai Collection is the anime adaption of the popular browser game produced by Diomedea studios in 2015. While it's been commissioned as a nationalist piece like it's source material, the artistic creativity laws of the Chosun prefectures (games don't count as art in Japan, but they're trying) allow the animators greater artistic control. The show follows Fukumoto "Fubuki" Tsukiko, an idealistic young girl (by western standards) drafted into the Kanmusu corps due to her harboring the soul of the IJN Fubuki, a WK2 era destroyer.

    The primary antagonist is the Hive, a parasitic collective organism that has infested Earth's oceans, and is a naked metaphor for Syndicalism in WK2. While on the surface it is mouth piece of Japanese nationalism, it has interesting themes on the brutality of war, the emotional costs of sacrificing oneself to the state, either through your efforts, or your life, and the abolition of predestination.

    English version of the movie poster
    Brasilia is a dystopian science fiction movie produced by the sindicato cinematográfico de atlantida in the United Communes of Brazil. Produced in 1985, Brasilia is lauded as one of the finest piece of satiric political cinema, and a spiritual successor to the last man in Europe by Eric Blair. While conveying the same themes, Brasilia uses comedy to underscore his themes, and has the main protagonist find freedom in his mind rather than his will broken. The movie takes place in a SAU under the influences of the Totalist leaders of Syndicalism, Mired by corruption, bureaucracy and oppression.

    A Congolese prime original, the Man in the High depicts a nightmarish alterate world where the third Internationale defeated the Entente and MittelEuropa in the Second Weltkreig. The result is the German Empire split between the Commune of France and the Russian State. The story follows multiple perspective such as a rebel in the West German Socialist Republic, a collaborator in the Prussian State capitol of Dresden and various others. A plot point in MHC is not only the worsening tensions between the Western Syndicates and the Eastern Totalists is the ability to jump dimensions, such as when one character entered our world during the French missile crisis.

    (Meanwhile in the outskirts of Berlin, a 20 year old Arabian girl pens a fan fic where the KLM Bismark liberates Germany from Totalist/Comunard oppression)

    Originally a game series centered around the Second Weltkreig, the Medal of Honor series made a successful move to the modern era in the 4th game in the series, Medal of Honor 4: Modern Warfighter. While many consider the MoH franchise to be Entente wank, only a few consider MOHMW's deconstruction of the Entente hero with the infamous nuke scene, which leaves the protagonist helpless as he succumbs to radiation sickness

    Thor Odinson, the greatest hero of the Avengers and one of the mightiest heroes of the Marvel Universe. Associated with War, Thunder, and Lightning, Thor also believes in protecting the common man, gaining the title of "friend of the humans". despite his royal nature, Thor favors the Internationale, though he does not intervene in the humans' political affairs. Instead, he holds the line against tides of Giants from all the realms, traveling the cosmos and slaughtering anything that could be seen as a threat to humanity.

    While a protector of earth and mankind, Thor is a violent, blood hungry God, and delights in gory, brutal battle. Wielding his gigantic hammer, MJOLNIR, a weapon so powerful it can destroy planets, alongside thousands of other brutal weapons, Thor tears through his foes in a berserk fury, eclipsing that of his father, Odin, God of Valhalla. Despite this, he will never kill an innocent and strives to protect the weak, even though he may be drenched in the gore of his enemies to do so. His comics are known for being the most violent of any Marvel storyline.



    image.jpeg

    The most powerful incarnation of Thor, known as Godkiller. A five mile high being capable of destroying entire universes, Thor donned his Godkiller incarnation in order to battle the Eternals, a race of humanoid, malevolent beings with infinite numbers and God-like powers who consume universes to create more of themselves. The comic, which involves Thor taking on literally Millions of universes worth of Eternals, is one of marvels most bombastic and gory comics ever made.
