Post-war Japan and the EACO by Kurarun Post-war Japan and the EACO by Kurarun
On AlternateHistory.com I said I'd do a 'cool' map of Japan where it won World War 2, and I have, sort of.

It's actually a Japan that stayed out of WW2, it never allied with Germany and became increasingly involved with the US instead. Under the USA's influence the initially Japan-centric East Asian Co-Prosperity Organisation gradually gradually became more and more capitalist and less centred around Japan.

Japan also became the nation to turn to for former Asian colonies when they needed money to stimulate their economy and to industrialise. As a result, a few former European colonies have become heavily economically involved with Japan, and have joined the EACO as a result.

Wouldn't this have just made it even more likely for them to have taken Vichy French Indochina?

Another great map.

I really like the idea of theJapanese Empire siding with the Allies rather than the Axis powers.

I always found it such a shame their country had to go through such a defeat. They had so much potential.

Thank you!

The idea behind this map isn't that Japan sides with the allies, but that it stays neutral and doesn't get involved with Germany, resulting in their further westernisation and modernisation by association with the United States.

The Japanese Empire will rise again!... but first they should set right their constitution.

Nice to see that Primorsky Krai was annexed, presumably in revenge for Nikolayevsk. I would wager that access to those resources were what kept Japan on the straight and narrow.

I wonder why the Qing still rules? Perhaps Japan backed Zhang Xun.

I wasn't really thinking when I gave Japan that part of Russia, I just wanted to show that they'd won a war against Russia/the USSR in the past.

The Chinese Empire is an extension of the Empire of Manchukuo, Japan's puppet state which was ruled by the last Qing Emperor, Pu Yi.

I honestly don't known. I worked out very little history for this map and the world it's in.

If I ever get around to redoing it, then I'll definitely work out the history of the world a great deal more.

Well if you ever need any help I know quite a lot about the Meiji and Taishō period.

It's good, yeah, but the sun behind the map draws my attention away from the map itself.

It's also a JPG, which is an unforgivable crime against humanity.

Korea undergoes another national uprising. and Japan decided to give then nominal autonomy?

In retrospect, this map doesn't actually make much sense (hence the independent Korea and the Republic of Assam). I'll probably redo it at some point so it makes more sense

I like it. The rising sun motif gives it a kind of propaganda poster feel.
