The now rebuilt forbidden city, China today has prospered largely with a nominal GDP per capita of around 12,000 USD, though has remained mostly isolationist as it could not rebound very fast given the immense horrors of the war with the soviets.

(I figured this China would be more of an inward focusing nation given the trauma of the war and while prosperous (after all, growth began earlier ttl) mostly be a nation in recovery trying to avoid war.)

Raül Castro was long-timed leader of Cuba. He came to power after assassination of his older brother Fidel Castro. Unlike Fidel, Raúl favored ratherly Syndicalism than Marxism which was generally really discredited ideology, thanks of bruatlity of Stalin's regime. Castro quickly expelled Soviet advisors and begun transfer the nation towards Syndicalism, making Cuba first Syndicalist nation. He too created pretty good relationships with United States altough Castro occassionally critised bigger neighbor. Cuba has been quiet symphatic to other Syndicalist movement but officially it has always avoided to create any kind of Syndicalist bloc. Castro step down in 2010 after 50 years of presidency due high age, weak health and he was too willingful give chance to younger generation. Despite his retirement Castro still continues on commenting politics and writing to magazines.

King Michael I of Romania (1921 - 2017) (reigned 1927 - 1930, 1940 - 1947 and 1968 - 2017)

When Soviet Union fell to civil war in 1967, Romanian rebels quickly ousted Romanian communist regime and established provisional government. Major issue was form of new state of Romania. Major factions were supporters of western democracy and syndicalists. Dispute over future of the country almost led to civil war but finally it was decided held referendum if people wants syndicalist state, constitutional monarchy or republic under democracy. On referendum in May 1968 overhelming majority gave support for restoration of monarchy and so forer king Michael was re-called from exile as king of the Romanians.

Michael I was through his third reign pretty popular. His reign saw democratisation of Romania, joining to NATO in 1970m peaceful re-annexation of Moldova in 1974 and joining to EEC in 1980. Romania got massive amount of recontruction funds at end of 1960's and early 1970's which helped the country recover from communism. Michael I too promoted massive support for post-soviet nations and reconstruction of post-Soviet Russia. He too gave massive support to reconstruction of Ukraine, but it hasn't yet to this day recovered from horrors of Soviet Civil War.

The king died in 2017 and was succeeded by his oldest daughter Margarita I.

King Simeon II of Bulgaria (b. 1937, r. 1943 - 1946, 1968 - )

Bulgarian communist regime was ousted on 1967. New provisional government decided held referendum about restoration of monarchy. Majority of people supported idea and so Simeon II was called back from exile in 1968. His reing saw return of democracy, reconstruction of Bulgaria, and joining to NATO and EEC. His reign too saw nnnexation of Macedonia in 1993 during Yugoslavian War. King Simeon II is still pretty popular in Bulgaria. He has too talked much about reconstruction of Balkans after disastrous Yugoslavian War.

Mátyás Rákosi led Hungary since it became communist nation soon after WW2. He was staunch Stalinist and he even called hismelf as Stalin's best disciple. But there was a problem. He was Jew and Stalin didn't trust them. So Rákosi had leave the stage. So in 1955 Stalin called him to Moscow. But it was trap. The leader of Hungary was killed and cremated. Officials claimed that he got heart attack. His successor András Hegedüs removed all signs about his existence from history books and even all of his states were removed. All of his achivements were re-credited by Hegedüs. Nowadays many see fate of Rákosi as one of evidence about Stalin's cold-blood ruthless and cruelness.

András Hegedüs became leader of Hungary after Rákosi's death. He continued stalinist politics and purged all Jews from all levels of administration. He was effectively Soviet puppet. In 1960's Hungary anyway begun see massive resistance against government. When Communist regime was ousted in 1967 Hegedüs and his government fled to Soviet Union.

Imre Nagy acter as minister on Hungarian communist government. In 1955 purges he wa<s anyway thrown to prison. When communism fell in Hungary in 1967, Nagy became leader of the country. He built Hungary as syndicalist nation. Altough the country remained as dictatorship, it was constitutionally ensured that it wouldn't become such tyrannic regime as what Soviet Union had became and no one could get such power as Stalin did. Nagy too passed one of strictest legistature against racism, antisemitism and Holocaust denial. Under Nagy's leadership Hungary recovered rapidly to same level what it was on early 1960's.
