Bolivaria: The world in 1921

Major PoDs:

The Continental Congress fails to reach any kind of agreement that all the states can agree on, and the revolutionaries generally fail to get their shit together properly. This results in the UK taking New England and holding on to the Northwest Territory. Washington, the leader of the Continental Army, eventually accepts the crown and the Kingdom of America is proclaimed. Later collapses into a civil war, ending with a southern victory and a reform into the loose Federation of America.
Mexico has a much quicker and more successful independence, and becomes a republic. Relatedly, Bolivar successfully unites Peru, Venezuela and New Granada into his Gran Colombia with help from the Mexicans. The two nations unify soon after. I made a post just about this here
Leopold, Prince of Hohenzollern accepts the Spanish crown in 1868, leading to an even worse (for France) war between France and Germany (War of German Unification), with Spain included on the German side. Spain becomes reinvigorated under Leopold's prussian-style leadership and reforms.
Karl von Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen's ascendance to the throne of Romania results in a close alliance between Russia and Germany, which (after a joint war with Austria) became the League of the Three Emperors between Germany, Russia and Spain.
Without the Russian Revolution, or any other major successful socialist movement (yet), communists have essentially zero presence in the Chinese Civil War. This leads to Yuan Shikai and his monarchist faction (supported by the League) and Sun Yat-sen and his republican faction being the two major players in the war. In 1921, delegations from both groups meet at the Nanjing Conference, and sign the Peace of Nanjing, officially ending the war.
The Ottoman Empire fell in a war with Russia, Germany and Spain (the League of Three Emperors) in 1914, ending in the Athens Conference that decided the current borders of Anatolia and Arabia.

Rasputin's Legacy - 1960
Current year: 1962

So much has changed since the Great War, yet so much is still the same. The systems and institutions of power have changed, but powers stays the same. Empire itself has begun to seem unattractive; an unfair and, more importantly, unsustainable political structure. The great empires that have risen in the last two hundred years have begun to realise that co-operation, even if it is blatantly unbalanced and favours the imperial power, is significantly more effective and sustainable than the imperial authoritarianism of old. Thus, a series of new international organizations have risen in place of those old empires: The French Community, the Commonwealth Realm and the Kiev Treaty Union are all examples of great powers attempting to create systems of control that seem more equitable and fair to their members. This development was, of course, not something the great powers of the world chose or particularly desired. The French were facing widespread political unrest across their African holdings, from the Malagasy Uprising in Madagascar to the Burkinabe revolts in the Upper Volta, it simply became unprofitable and difficult for the French to maintain the tight grip they had had on their colonies, and so a decision was made to reform the French Colonial Empire into the new French Community (Communauté française). The Kiev Treaty Union (Kiev Vertragsabkommenwas) was founded after the Eurasian War, as Germany sought to establish hegemony over Eastern Europe after the fall of the Soviet Union, and the Commonwealth of Nations, the oldest of the three, became what it is today after the London Declaration of 1955, granting independence to Ghana, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Rhodesia-Nyasaland, while also extending the organization to include old puppet regimes of the British such as Egypt or Oman, as well as the old Dominions such as Canada, South Africa and Australia.

The last 25 years can be summarized by three major geopolitical events: The Chinese Civil War, the Eurasian War of 1952, and lastly, the decolonisation of India and Africa.
The Chinese Civil War, beginning in 1927 when the Communist Party of China (CPC) split with the Kuomintang (KMT), was the first of these four events, and was a large part of the reason for the eventual war between Germany and the USSR, given their conflicting interests in China. While some parts of China that broke away during the war, namely Gansu, Yue and Shandong have since reunited with the Republic, massive parts of Sun Yat-sen's Republic of China remain fiercely independent, or part of other nations that they would prefer. These regions include the Kingdom of Tibet, once supported by the British but very much an independent nation today, the State of Mongolia, a Soviet protectorate up until the collapse of the old USSR, the Zhuang people of southern China, who have found a new home amongst their Tai brethren in the Tai Empire, the Dzunghar-Kazakh and Uyghur Republics, both of which were once part of the Soviet protectorate of East Turkestan that collapsed as the USSR disappeared. Lastly there is Manchukuo, the Japanese puppet-regime that fell when the Soviets pushed Japan out of mainland Asia in the Great War, but was re-created as a result of the Eurasian War as Japan invaded the People's Republic of Manchuria, under the control of the remnants of the Communist Party of China.

The next major event to take place was the Eurasian War, which can be read about here: Lasting from 1952 to 1955, the Eurasian War is generally considered the second "Great War" of the 21st century. Resulting in even larger territorial changes than the Great War of 1914, the Eurasian War directly shaped most of the Europe and Asia we see today. With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the independence of the many nations that it contained, a brand new geopolitical landscape has emerged in the region. Eastern Europe has seen an unprecedented German dominance with the new Kiev Treaty Union, uniting the former Soviet nations of Ukraine, Livonia and Belarus uniting several other eastern european countries (Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovakia, and the former German protectorates of Slovenia, Czechia and Poland) into one economic, military and political union, dominated by Germany. The new nations in Central Asia and the Caucasus suffers widespread political unrest, with at least one country, the Caspian Federation, locked in a full blown civil war. The great powers of the world are closely eyeing these two regions, trying to figure out who would be best to quitely support. The Japanese also managed to benefit from the war; establishing two puppet-states in the former Russian Far-East, the Amur and Kamchatka Republics, and re-establishing their former Manchurian puppet of Manchukuo.

Lastly, there is the decoloisation of India and ongoing decolonisation of Africa and elsewhere. While there had been successful post-Great War independence movements earlier, notably those in Jammu-Kashmir and Balochistan, the modern decolonisation movement really began with the Sikh and Hindi rebellions of the late 40's. The success of these rebellions first lead to several other independence movements in British India, and eventually the Indian Civil War of 1953-1959. The decolonisation of India is looked upon as one of the messiest and violent affairs of the post-Great War world, and is usually split into two phases: the first phase when the British had clearly lost control of the subcontinent and the conflict shifted from being mainly against the British to the different rebel groups fighting eachother, and the second phase when infighting within the soon-to-be nations began to cease, gearing the conflict more towards a conventional war between countries, rather than a civil war. The second phase would see Gujarat and Odia officially split from Hindustan, Assam unite into a single federation and the Pashto invasion of Afghanistan in an attempt to unite the Pashtun lands. The new nations of India are still heavily scarred from the war, but are in the process of rebuilding and mending the relationships between their former enemies.
The collapse of British power in India and a general push for local autonomy across the colonies lead the British to sign the aforementioned London Declaration of 1955. The Declaration ensured the independence of most of British territories in Africa, excluding Somaliland, Kenya and Uganda. These new nations generally fall into two categories: those with stable yet oppressive regimes, and those without stable regimes at all. Ghana and Sierra Leone are both on the brink of civil war, and Nigeria, while it has managed to consolidate power into a single unified state, still faces large-scale unrest in the northern and south-eastern parts of the country. South Africa and the Rhodesia-Nyasaland Federation (RNF) are both run by highly oppressive and racist regimes that discriminate against the native black populations, withholding the right to vote and generally treating them as second-class citizens. In the former british territory of Palestine, the new Protectorate of Israel has been founded in the north-western, highly jewish parts of the region, while the rest governed by the independent, but highly influenced by Britain, State of Palestine.

In the Americas, the United States has continued to expand its influence into Central America and the Carribean, directly or indirectly overthrowing the governments of Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Cuba. They also sponsored the Dominican invasion and eventual annexation of Haiti in 1952, and supported and de-facto established the Aztlán Republic in northern Mexico.
The Eurasian War
Current year: 1953

Scenario: Rasputin's Legacy

As with so many other great wars of history, it's difficult to pin down exactly what caused the Great Eurasian War. German and British historians will say that the Soviets helped rebel groups in their territories gain power, which is undoubtably correct, and that this is what eventually led to the war. Soviet historians will point out that the neverending pressure and poking of the western powers against the Soviets made the war inevitable, which there certainly is some truth to as well. The western powers of Germany and Britain had been attempting to contain and put pressure on the russians for well over a decade when the war broke out, yet socialist revolutionary groups kept cropping up no matter how many times they were brutally supressed. After the Chinese Civil War ended with the Kuomintang sending the remanining chinese communists fleeing northwards into Mongolia and Manchuria, the capitalist powers hoped that they had halted the spread of socialism for a while, but just within the five years following the civil war, socialist revolutions succeeded in at least six different nations, and were attempted in many more.
The immediate cause of the war is just as debatable as the overall leadup and escalation that eventually lead to it. Germans justified their war by clashing border claims in Livonia, Ruthenia and Belarus (claims who's legitimacy is still up for debate), the Brits joined the war as they were already fighting against soviet-backed regimes and rebels in India, Japan had a burning desire to get back at the Soviets for pushing them out of mainland Asia during the Chinese Civil War. In short, every nation or empire had its own reason for joining a war against the Soviets.

Following the initial German-led invasion of Russia in 1952, the german command quickly realised that they weren't going to be able to fight a sustained war of attrition against the Soviets, as they were simply outnumbered, and since the Soviets had the weather on their side. The solution was a tactic made possible by the modern technology of the time: Blitzkrieg. The strategy of rapid advance through heavy use of tanks and air-cover was exceedingly successful during the early months of the war, but eventually the german war-machine ground to a halt as it crushed against the Soviets. It would take two crucial turning-points in the war for this stalemate to be solved: The first was the entry of the Japanese Empire into the war. This diverted crucial resources away from the Soviet western front, allowing the Germans to re-energize their push towards Moscow and Leningrad. In October of 1953, Leningrad fell to the Germans after a prolonged and bloody siege. However, after the fall of Leningrad, the war-effort began slowing down yet again as the Soviets became more desperate and were able to re-group around Moscow. It would take a much more significant event to break this second stalemate, and in July of 1954, that event came: The death of Joseph Stalin and the subsequent coup-attempt by coalition-supported rebels. This coup, while initially a failure, manage to destabilize the Soviet government to the point where the coalition forces were able to yet again re-energize their advance and capture Moscow before christmas that year. Despite what the German government assumed, the fall of Moscow did not lead to the immediate surrender of the Soviet government. In stead, they fled to the city of Samara, where they held out until the 23rd of May, 1955, when the Germans took the city and the Soivet government finally agreed to being negotiations. The war was over, but negotiations were dragging out. In October of '55, the Coalition forces had had enough, when they exiled the Soviet government to Siberia and installed the new Russian Republic in the european parts of Russia.

In the end, the war resulted in the creation of a whole 15 new states in eastern europe, the caucasus and central asia, as well as one rump-state of the former USSR and one region which is still in a civil war. They were the Duchies of Livonia, Belarus and Ukraine, all protectorates of the German Empire. In the caucasus there were six nwe nations: The Republic of Abkhazia, the Kingdom of Georgia, the Republic of Ossetia, the Azeri Republic and the Kingdom of Armenia, as well as the attempted Caspian Federation, in the Dagestan, Chechnya and Ingushetia provinces of the former USSR, which quickly decended into civil war. In central asia there were also six new nations: The Republic of Kazakhstan, the Karakalpak Republic, the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Kyrgyz Republic, the Republic of Tajikistan and the Republic of Turkmenia. Lastly, the two states in the former Russian SFSR are the ostensibly democratic Russian Republic, and the rump-state of the former USSR: The Siberian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic.
