If the event here was not listed, then it happens exactly the way it does in our timeline. The crucial events in China which were necessary for the establishment of the CCP are not listed below, so assume they happen exactly the way they do. If you've got questions, TG me anytime.


Late 1800s-Early 1900s, Philippines: The First Philippine Republic survives, unlike in our timeline. The crude patchwork guerilla army continually fights a shadow-resistance against American Occupation through War Plan Luna. The valiant General Antonio Luna assists Emilio Aguinaldo by heavily fortifying most of Luzon, at the very least stalling the onslaught advance of the American army. Decades pass, and Manila remains occupied by the foreign invaders. A puppet Philippine Commonwealth is instituted by the American government, but unrecognized by the Filipino people.

1892, Southeast Asia: Communist detractors and Illustrados from the First Philippine Republic form the Kilusang Mayo Uno, or otherwise known as the KMU. The Far-Left Worker's Union rises to power and spearheads the Communist Revolution in Southeast Asia. Isabelo Delos Reyes, later on commemorated as the Founding Father of Philippine Communism, writes essays against American Capitalism and incites local uprisings across the Anglocentric region.

1922, Soviet Union: Upon previous warnings relayed by Lenin, Leon Trotsky secretly orders the assassination of Josef Stalin. Trotskyism in the USSR takes its rightful place within Soviet politics. In accordance to this, Socialist revolutions occur all across Western Europe. The Five-Year plan is still retained, killing off millions in starvation. The Mensheviks are silenced by a regime of terror similar to that of Stalin in our timeline.

1924, Philippines: After American policies nullified the legitimacy of the Partido Obrera de Filipinas (Philippine Worker's Party), its leader- Antonio Ora, founds a resistance movement bent on attaining a Philippine Socialist Republic by force. Together with the KMU, they launch consecutive coup-d'etats in Manila and rural areas of Mindanao. Guerilla Wars between the American-bloc Philippine Commonwealth and the so-called "True" Sovereign Philippine Republic continue to devastate the Philippines; now in a threeway war with the Communist Faction now officially recognized as the National Democratic Front, or NDF. Hilario Barroga becomes the first General-Secretary of the newfound Communist Republic.

1931, Manchuria: The Tojo Regime in Japan begins the systematic annexation of Manchuria as tensions rise in East Asia. Skirmishes are fought between Soviet forces in Siberia against the Japanese Imperial Army. With Soviet military forces occupied in funding Western revolutions, the Japanese confidently seize most of Manchuria whilst Soviet officials struggled to maintain peaceful relations with Japan for the time being to avoid casualties.

1935, Germany, The Second European War: The German Weimar Republic, Poland and most of Eastern Europe are overthrown by Leftist supporters. Adolf Hitler's National Socialist Party is quickly overpowered by increasing opposition from Soviet-backed revolutionaries. Many Far-Right supporters, including Adolf Hitler; flee to America instead. The People's Republic of Germany is established, much to the horror of the Anglo-Western powers. Fearing the overpowering might of the growing Eastern Bloc, the Western Allies of Great Britain, France, and the Scandinavians declare war on the Soviet Internationale.

The Spanish Civil War ends in Soviet victory as France teeters on the brink of Russian domination.

Albert Einstein is recruited by the Soviet Military (whether by force or by consent is up for debate) to design Weapons of Mass Destruction- and discovers the radioactive element, Sakuradite, hidden in the Caucasus Mountains. Unstable and unable to harness the element's full extent, Einstein ignores this discovery to continue producing high-grade, military weapons to arm the Soviet Revolutionaries.

1940, The United States of America: The United States of America fully embraces isolationism. Still upset over Great Britain's failed invasion of Soviet-occupied mainland Germany and Norway, as well as Philippine Resistance fighters breaking the American economy; the nation pulls out all foreign military aid: including American forces in the Philippines. Later that year, the Philippine Republic officially declared its independence.

1941, The Beginning of the Second Pacific War: Japanese forces took the opportunity of a weakened military force in the Southeast and fleeing European forces from all across Asia to strike first. As America officially declared its isolationism, Japan saw no use for the bombing of Pearl Harbour nor involving the economic superpower in the war. Southeast Asia was invaded with haste by the Imperial Japanese Army. Manila fell within the first few months of the Battle for Luzon.

1945, The Death of the Philippine Republic: The Philippine Republic officially capitulated upon the fall of Corregidor Island. With no American support, the country fell into ruin under Japanese occupation with nearly no hope of recovery. Japan soon conquered most, then all of China; meaning the dissolution of both the Kuomintang Nationalist Party and the radical Communist faction.

1946: Einstein is killed by prolonged radiation exposure whilst experimenting with Sakuradite. He was later given the title of Hero of the Soviet People post-mortem, the highest honor the Soviet Government could give to any single individual.

1950, The Eastern Overlord, The Third Pacific War: As the Sun set in Southeast Asia, the flames put out by an Imperial Occupation eager to stamp out Asian resistance; it also rose on an envious power in the Soviet Union. Europe had completely capitulated to Soviet Regime. America and the New World remained the last lifeboat of Capitalism. As the threat in the West deteriorated, the Soviet Union turned its eyes Eastward. Skirmishes frequented along the Soviet-Japanese border, and eventually; the USSR declared war on the Japanese Empire.

Anti-Imperialist revolutions grew in size as the Soviet Union continued to plunge its dagger deep into Imperial Japanese provinces. In this timeline, those revolutions were led by leaders such as Ho Chi Minh, Mao Zhedong, the DPRK; and so on.

1987, Nuclear Fission: Sergei Korolev perfects ballistic missiles and builds upon the research of the late Albert Einstein; to perfect Nuclear Fission. The first Atomic 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 easier. Despite the attack on Tokyo, Japan continues to fight on; establishing a new capital in Manila because of its strategic location.

Several Nuclear Bombs are irresponsibly used by the Soviet Union on Asian territory, as part of the offensive against the Japanese. The Bombs were highly effective, yet drove the Asian population to near extinction. Entire cities such as Singapore and Manila are completely obliterated into nuclear fallout. The Japanese Army is set into full retreat, and the "Great Patriotic War" ensues for four more harsh years, with countless millions dead; and blood spilt on both sides.

1991, The Birth of the Pan-Asiatic States: Finally, in 1991, the last Japanese forces in Papua New Guinea were eliminated with the help of Nuclear Weapons.

The last remaining Japanese forces flee to the increasingly fascist United States. The Pacific Wars had created a sense of Asian Nationalism; a sense of fully embracing Pan-Asianism through a united banner. The resistance had primarily been led by Philippine Revolutionary forces, especially that of the National Democratic Front; which became the largest revolutionary army during the Third Pacific War. 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. The Russians established the Pan-Asiatic Soviet Socialist Provisional Republic, and the Japanese Soviet Socialist Republic after the official capitulation of Imperial Japanese Forces in the March of 1991, when the last commander of the IJA, the self-declared Prime Minister Yamashita; agreed to the terms of the Manila Pact.


1991-1992, The Cold War: Russo-Asian relations were severely affected by the devastation caused by the Atomic Bomb. A short Cold War between the two races lasts for two months between December 1991 and January 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.

A special congress to withhold international relations retains the peace. A compromise is established- the Pan-Asiatic States earn their total sovereignty from the Soviet Union; with both sides fearing a schism would lead to the Fascist States of America only growing more powerful.


Today.

The Pan-Asiatic States have risen from the ashes of fallout, sustaining near-nuclear annihilation. In the face of ignorance and resistance, Communism has finally taken its rightful place in the world. City Centers prosper as the Asian Powerhouse Economy provides prosperity to the Eurasian Landmass. Nuclear technology is used for the greater good, fueling new mechanisms and empowering humanity; rather than destroying it. After years of war and suffering, the Asian Master Race has finally bolstered a new era of grandiose innovation.

Tensions continue against the United States of America, though still isolationist, and increasingly anti-Communist. The Fascist Party of the USA call for action, the voice of the American people cry for war, and American citizens starve in the streets; cut-off from European and Asian trade.

In the timeline wherein the Pan-Asiatic States exist, Americans are looked down upon the same way Immigrants are seen by today's so-called Conservatives. Fascists, Capitalists, and Monarchists are heavily discriminated- as Communists adapt their own reactionist adversaries and sayings:

"Capitalism has never worked. Those who work are not paid, those who pay do not work. It leads to Tyranny and Laziness! Better Red than Dead!"
