    Yep! There are plenty of people who are willing to sell a lot of illegal products. The lack of security, corrupt officials and the unregulated amount of trade coming in and out of this part of Asia makes it hard to track down smugglers and the like.

    I imagine you might see gangs in some of those port cities.

    British Protectorate and is borderline First World with a few kinks that need ironing out.

    ah. I imagine they likely took it from Spain and have been trying to de-Spanicify its culture.

    Most of the Spaniards stuck around once Madrid lost their colonies in the early 19th century. Those that have remained are sorta like the Afrikaners of OTL and are considered their own separate ethnic group.

    Depends on the area, there's no minority that's known for being poorer in comparison to any other group. Barring Siamese and Chinese refugees.

    Slowly grinding British-Filipino bureaucracy has left these refugees in the lurch, but there are plenty of charities who are trying to solve that issue.

    ah.
    also, you mention Siamese refugees. What's going on in Thailand?

    Siam is one of the last Red states on the planet and acts as a hybrid of Vietnam and North Korea.

    Think Kim Il-Sung with a better head on his shoulders.

    Still around ITTL since it's only 2015.

    But he's reaching the end of his tether, so to speak... :(

    Where is he? In the Phillippines somewhere, as a refugee of the Thai regime?
