Something else would have done it, for sure. It could have been delayed for a time, though.

Eh, agreed more or less. I'm not well versed in Chinese history though.


The Arabs of Saudi Arabia were better off ruled by the Al-Rashids or the Hashemite dynasty than the corrupt Sauds.

♔ Holy Intermarian Order ♔
Patron: Jozef Pilsudski | Overview | Imperator | Anthem

A post-apocalyptic, neoclassical-styled, multi-cultural federation of central European kingdoms led by the ambitious Imperator Konstantyn after a bloody civil war. Governed as a secular and meritocratic liberal autocracy with an economy managed in dirigist lines. The concept of Intermarium is partly inspired by the Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Fallout, Kaiserreich and Fuhrerreich, historical politics, and numerous others.

Voice of the Nation: Meanwhile, Imperator Konstantyn plans to assemble a cabinet of royal advisors and secretaries comprised of technocrats and veteran governmental officials to rebuild Intermarium's political system.

The only kind of communism I think could work is anarcho-communism, and then I'm not sure it could work for longer than a brief period before becoming a state again.

Communism still makes good memes though.

The Burma and Aleutian campaigns are among the more obscure (or at least less popular) WW2 operations.

They were pretty much the East Asian equivalent of Nazi Germany, just smaller on scale (though larger in ambition)
