The first Sakuradite Bomb is dropped on Tokyo, wiping out the entire Imperial family. Lacking stern leadership, the Japanese provinces fall into disarray, making liberation by Soviet forces much easier. Despite the attack on Tokyo, Japan continues to fight on; establishing a new capital in Manila due to its strategic location. Consequently, several of his aides begin discovering new, convoluted ways to channel this energy into powering the vehicles of the extremely mobile Red Army. These would later prove to be indispensable weapons of war as the world moved onward to the Modern Age.

Originally, many sovereign states fought to maintain the status quo; but were eventually quelled by the much more popular Pan-Asian Radicals-- which opted instead for a federal republic.

  • Russo-Asian relations are severely affected by the devastation caused by the Atomic Bombs the Soviet administration so carelessly dropped. A short Cold War between the two states erupts for nearly a year between December 1991 and November 1992, disrupting international trade and bolstering political rivalry between the two Communist Factions. The States discriminated Soviet Trotskyism for its acceptance of Globalist and Internationalist ideals, specifically, their support of the Communist Party of America- which to Nationalists, was undeserving for the Westerners who had oppressed Asia for a significant amount of time. Communist Pan-Asian Radical Organisations such as the Neo-Bolshevik United Front, the National Democratic Front and the New People's Army; chose to embark on a much more isolationist path.
