    I'm fairly certain when it was drawn up in mid 1945 the planners were not considering it likely that the communists would take over China. In any case Chiang Kai-shek was never keen on actually occupying Japan so he may never have sent more than a token force

    That map makes me question if the Soviets even had the capability of launching an invasion on Hokkaido, much less Tōhoku.

    Here is a quick Worlda patch for Talleyrand's partition plan for the Southern Netherlands. If someone can make it more accurate please do.

    They had the plans yes. And the ships. The plan was to land at Rumoi in Hokkaido. They also conducted various amphibious landings in southern Sakhalin, the Kurile Islands and in northern Korea.

    They don't have to take all of the occupation zone to be allocated it in the post-war division. The Soviets didn't occupy all of what would become OTL East Germany at the end of WWII.

    Maybe the RoC could find refuge in their occupation zone?

    Why Osaka when they could go to Taiwan as IOTL?

    I imagine in all honesty it'll just default to the British/Americans or the capitalist "South Japan" or whatever state comes into existence post-occupation.

    EDIT: Also WorldA

    Nice, but I'm fairly sure that the Ryukyu islands were supposed to be occupied by the US rather than the UK (though I could be mistaken)

    Dig a deep wide canal and fill in the northern strait of the Irish Sea. Simples!

    I feel like whom ever proposed this was on some wild stuff at the time of writing

    You're spot on, my apologies - image edited to feature that as well as adding China to the Tokyo occupation zone.

    Also hijacking this comment to add the Irish WorldA :p - if anyone has any objections to me constantly converting to WorldA feel free to speak up - I'm not trying to be a like-hog or spammy or anything:)

    I don't think this really counts since Punch was a satirical magazine

    Well, it is a proposal, albeit an admittedly facetious one.

    If that really crazy (and almost certainly satirical) "re-drawn Middle East borders" proposal qualifies (page 12 of this thread, post #228) then this one from Punch qualifies too, I'd say...

    That was a genuine proposal by a Think Tank, not "Mad Magazine".

    A proposal that goes out of its way to create the Arab Shia State (ASS) and the Saudi Homelands Independent Territories (SHIT) is either a joke or created by a "think tank" that's very bad at, you know, thinking.
