The UK was a superpower (or very strong great power) until 1956. The Suez Crisis is widely brought up here in the US as an cautionary tale of a superpower being brought down due to too much debt. If it avoids Suez or has its desired outcome it could last longer as a superpower.

Suez wasn't that big a turning point. India was gone, Canada, Australia, etc. were for all intents and purposes fully independent, and the economy was only sluggishly recovering from WWII: rationing had ended just 2 years ago. Britain had been trying to punch above its weight for some time - the Suez crisis simply showed the emperor had no clothes.

For mine I`d have the US, victorious Kaiserriech, USSR and Anglo-French Union. The rationale is that the fanaticism of Communism and Nazism cannot co-exist whereas the limited war of WW1 can create a superpower Germany that can live with a fanatical USSR, and would force an Anglo-French union as well.

The USSR will probably be lacking the Ukraine, etc. in a Kaiserriech victory scenario. Might want to beef it up by adding a Commie China (Japan driven out of China by an alliance of Chinese rebels and the Soviets, and the Sino-Soviet alliance is a lot closer and more enduring than OTL)

Russia without the Ukraine would still be a superpower, not as strong as OTL Russia/USSR but still very powerful, more on par with the Kaisarriech and the A-F Union.
