    Lets do a plot twist!
    Muammar Al Gaddafi was a secessionist advocate for Fezzan, in Tripolantia. He advocated a decentralized Jamahariya system. Fezzan was largely looted, and a very poor part of the nation. Eventually, a revolt occurred, and he said "the peasants of Fezzan have had enough! Allahu Akbar!" The revolt was crushed within a few months, and gangs from Misrata captured and killed him.

    Considered the largest restaurant chain in the world, HKH (Himmlers Köstliches Huhn, “Himmler’s Delicious Chicken”) has changed a lot since its beginnings. Founded in 1949 by Heinrich Himmler, a German tycoon who fled to Südwestafrika after the Fall of Germany and was known for his “Chicken Master Race”, it was originally just a couple of restaurants created in an attempt to diversify his poultry farming business. As time passed and his establishments grew more and more popular he started to take the restaurant business seriously. Himmler opened new restaurants in several of the main cities of Mittelafrika, including the capital Dar-es-Salaam, and imitated the strategies of other restaurant chains (like McDonald&Kroc’s in the Pacific States), effectively turning HKH into a fast food company, with low prices, quick service and good food. This also meant that he needed to forget some of his principles in order to succeed, like allowing blacks to eat and work in the same condition as their fellow Germans in his establishments, though he remained a white supremacist all his life [1].

    At the time of Himmler’s death in 1965 HKH had restaurants all across Mittelafrika, and soon began to expand to other African countries like South Africa, Kongo or Somalia. Its expansion outside of German-aligned Africa didn’t commence until the late 80’s (due to few hopes of success internationally and the 1977 Oil Crisis) but once the first smiling chickens of HKH logo started to appear in Australasia and South America it grew wildly, especially in the Co-Prosperity Sphere’s countries, where it rivalled MD&K’S in popularity. Since the end of the Cold War the company has also opened new establishments in Syndicalist countries, though like all the foreign companies it has been forced to adapt its franchises to a mutualist system.

    HKH has become one of the symbols of the modern world, with its restaurants being present everywhere from the frozen streets of Vladivostok to the suburbs of Cape Town, truly framing the new, globalized world.

    [1]Though Himmler learned to present a cheery and tolerant image and to keep his opinions to himself, documents like his diary and letters to friends and familiars show his virulent racism, antisemitism and ultranationalism, calling blacks “sub-humans” and Jews “hideous weaklings” and proclaiming the necessity of “reclaiming the Fatherland from the red hordes”. HKH has always tried to escape from the shadow of its founder’s ideology, financing anti-racism campaigns and projects and maintaining a strict code of conduct to avoid discrimination of any kind.

    Saddam Hussein Abd al-Majid al-Tikriti, controversial iraqi writer, particurly notorious for his pan-arabist views and controversial position regarding kurds and other minorities.

    His rise to fame started in 1978 when he published his first novel "The Fortified Castle" , an adventure romance novel set during the Ottoman-Axis war, based on his personal experience during the conflict.

    The book was harshly criticised for its depiction of the kurds as loyal servants of the ottoman sultane, even if they were first ones to rebel against him, and for his exaltation of the egyptian and iraqi fronts while ignoring the contribute of Persia and Rashidi Arabia.

    In 1982 he officially embraced the cause of Pan-Arabism, publishing "The Kabul journals", a sci-fi novel describing a distopian future where Russia, Persia , Turkey and Greece teamed up to destroy Egypt and divided the arab world between each other ( with Iraq directly integrated into Persia)
    The book was promply censored in Kurdistan for his description of Kurds as "fake muslims and loyal servants of the west" and forced the iraqi royal government to reaffirm its loyalty to its persian ally.

    In 1985 he moved to the sultanate of Egypt, citing "persecution" by the iraqi government as reason.

    He has been at the center of another scandal in 2002 when he was accused of having exagerated his military service during the Ottoman-Axis war

    Soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army charge Chinese positions near Tsingtao, 1941. The Chinese theatre of the Second Weltkrieg was one of the most brutal of the war, with the IJA inflicting horrific brutalities on Chinese civilians and POWs. Although Japan would overrun Beijing, their failure to take Nanjing in 1942 all but ensured that superior Chinese manpower would win the day, as it did by 1945.

    Imperial Chinese Army troops preparing for the Second Battle of Beijing, 1944. By 1944 the Qing army had gone from being a mess of corruption and mismanagement to a truly modern army; it had been trained by three years of brutal combat, equipped by German tanks and guns that matched pound for pound anything the Japanese could throw at them, and led by Generals every bit as competent as their Japanese counterparts. During Operation Sun Tzu this new army would prove its mettle, pushing up from the Yangtze all the way to the Yalu river, and utterly crushing the Kwangtung army under the treads of Donnerschlag-4 tanks. The Second Weltkrieg saw the destruction of Germany's main Asian rival, the Japanese Empire- and yet, in time, the reborn Qing Empire the Germans set up as a counterweight to the Japanese would come to be a greater threat than the Empire of the Rising Sun ever was, and, indeed, the Empire that would finally bring an end to Germany's dominance of the east in the 1960s.

    The Xuantong Emperor meets with officers of the American People's Liberation Army to coordinate the war against Japan. Puyi entered the Asian phase of the Second Weltkrieg a figurehead despised by half his people; by the end, he was a national icon cheered by the masses as he rode at the head of the Imperial army parade through the newly liberated Beijing. Historian Rana Mitter declared that "The Germans might have given Puyi back his throne, but the Japanese gave him back his people"; there is a great deal of truth in this argument. During the Second Weltkrieg the Chinese people were united in a mutual war of resistance against the Japanese invader, in a way that they hadn't been since 1911. Puyi's role as a symbol of resistance, combined with the Republicans in Fengtien's collaboration with the Japanese, rehabilitated the monarchy in the eyes of most Chinese; the Qing had regained the Mandate of Heaven, and hold it to this day.
