Wait, wait, where is the Brazilian rubber? We were amoung the world greatest producers in the 1930s.
Not exactly. Brazil was a major producer in the 19th century, but since the 1910s it had been overtaken by European plantation colonies in East Asia, which operated with much greater efficiency than the wild rubber industry in Brazil. The Brazilian rubber industry by the 1930s was next to extinct, made worse by a fungal epidemic. With that said, there are 4 units of rubber in Acre.

Here is a source for global production in this period. Brazil is part of the "wild" category:

What would you say the general balance of power of the mod is? How is WWII likely to play out?
The balance of power really depends on which nations go socialist. The main disadvantage for INPROV is the amount of enemy nations it will need to face simultaneously at the onset of WWII. The best situation for the anti-communists is having as many nations on their side as possible, to overwhelm INPROV. If INPROV can clear this hurdle either through expanding their alliance pre-war or through strategic successes in the early war, dominating continental Europe in the course of the war is not out of the question. Obviously the goal of the anti-communists is to do everything in their power to prevent that, with Britain functioning as a sort of anti-communist "international police", similar to the role of the United States in the Cold War.
 
Interestingly, I think that INPROV will have better positioning from a raw materials standpoint and a strategic standpoint. Most of Germany + MOTHER RUSSIA is a solid bloc indeed. It's going to be a very different war than we get in OTL or in KR.
 
Yeah. The only way for the Blue Block to survive this is for the British helping to create their own replacement and Super-power-dom the US ASAP.
Also, doesn't make sense that Czechia is not Red Block. SoD breaking. Especially as it was pointed out to me on SV why my belief that Czechia would remain capitalist when surrounded by Hungarian, Polish, and German socialist states is dumb.

I actually agree that Czechia should realistically be in the socialist bloc. The choice to keep them capitalist was really for balance and narrative reasons, similarly to Italy not being socialist at the start as well as Armenia existing.

Yeah. Because Czechia was basically the armaments factory of the Austria-Hungary Empire.
 
How difficult is to make a monarchist Greater Germany? It is more difficult than reclaiming the home islands as Canada in Kaiserreich, or it is apocalyptically difficult like trying to conquer mainland italy as sardegna?

Also can germany got authoritarian socialist?
 
2 questions regarding Japan:
First, will it be possible to save the Taisho Democracy, or is Japan doomed to a military government. Second, will Japan always fight the Soviets, or is some form of Nanshin-ron a possibility still with them?
 
Apologies for the late responses to these questions.

I know some may be disappointed, but a united monarchist Germany (or united anti-communist Germany in general) will only be possible if France falls and then is "liberated" by the British and their allies. The reason for this is that France would under no circumstances permit a united Germany, so to circumvent this there needs to be circumstances where the British are able to dominate the post-war agenda in Germany. The only way that could happen is if the French are defeated. With that said, Baden-Wurttemberg will always be able to form a South German Federation encompassing its current lands plus Bavaria.

Taisho Democracy is essentially doomed, yes. As answered on the Discord, Japan has territorial aspirations in Siberia and is closely bound to Britain, making Nanshin-ron out of the question. With that said, Japan will still be able to interfere militarily in China (eg. invading Manchuria when Chinese unification is near).

Is Red Vienna a rip?
The Austromarxists have a small state in Upper Austria and Salzburg, based in Linz.

No chance to rework this on a far away future?
