here is anpther "Alt Fatherland" this time with a Russia where the White army won the Russian Civil War 

It has been 40 years since the Russian Civil War ended with the failure of the Red Army to consolidate power in a Broken Russia. A triumphant Kolchak declared victory over Russia. The supporters of the White Army withdrew from the conflict, satisfied that they had supported the winning side. In Siberia, the Remaining Reds fought on in a bitter guerrilla war. Allied efforts turned to the Great War. That came in 1918, with victory over the Central Powers. By then, reconstruction had begun throughout Europe. In 1920, Alexander Kolchok restored the Tsardom, with himself as the Supreme Leader. In the decades after the war, Russia had become restored as a vast empire. The Tsar's architect built a monument to the New Russian Empire. Saint Petersburg became a Russian showplace. The White Army became the Russian Military. As the '30s began, the Tsar was able to put a more civilized face on the New Empire, but news continued to be tightly controlled. The decades went on, and the '60s began with the guerrilla war in the East still dragging on. The Tsar desperately needed to conclude a formal peace with the Rest of Europe and gain control of the Bolshevik State of Sakhalin, still led by the aging Leon Trotsky. the Tsar saw signs of hope in late 1960 with the election of a new President of the European Committee. The Tsar believed with President  in office, at last there would be someone with whom a deal can be struck. Now in 1964, for the first time in 40 years, Russia's borders are being opened to the rest of Europe. The world press is being invited to cover the Tsar's birthday celebration. There are rumors that the President will attend a Russo-European summit conference. An alliance with the rest of Europe would ensure Russia's invulnerability... but there are other more persistent rumors that could threaten the Tsar's plans. There were stories that terrible things happened during the civil war. That the official story that the Destruction of harmless villages and slaughter of innocents being perpetrated by the Red Army, wasn't true. There are also rumors that in the New Russian Empire, terrible things are still happening. Television, radio, and newspapers are all tightly controlled. Nobody, in a new Moscow, dares to ask awkward questions.
here is a recreation of Fatherland with Italy in the place of Germany. this is based off of an idea that Infernomole gave me.

It has been 20 years since the Second World War ended with the failure of the Allied war in Africa. A triumphant Italy declared victory over Africa and Southern Europe. The British and Americans withdrew from the conflict. In the conquered territory, only the African Guerrillas fought on in a bitter guerrilla war. American and British efforts turned to fighting against the Reich and Japanese Empire. That came in the summer of 1945, with victory over Japan and Germany. Haile Selassie, who had just barely escaped the Italians, died in Great Britain early in the 50s. In the years after the war, country after country of Southern Europe and Africa had become part of the vast empire of New Rome. Mussolini's Architects built a monument to the New Pax Romana. the Empire's Capital, Rome, became a Fascist showplace. As the '50s came to a close, Mussolini was able to put a more civilized face on the Empire, but news and media continued to be tightly controlled. The '60s began with the guerrilla war in East Africa still dragging on. the Roman Government desperately needed to conclude a formal peace with the Allied Powers, as well as deal with the African Resistance, Led by the aging Charles De Gaulle. Mussolini saw signs of hope in late 1960 with the election of a new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. The Roman Government believed with Prime Minister Harold Macmillian in office, at last there would be someone with whom a deal can be struck. Now in 1964, for the first time in 20 years,Rome's borders are being opened to the Allied powers. The world press is being invited to cover Il Duce's birthday celebration. There are rumors that the Prime Minister will attend a Roman-Allied summit conference. An alliance with the Allies would ensure Rome's invulnerability... but there are other more persistent rumors that could threaten Mussolini's plans. There were stories that the Empire did terrible things during the war. That the official story that atrocities in Africa were committed by the enemy were not true. There are also rumors that in the Empire, terrible things are still happening. Television, radio, and newspapers are all tightly controlled. Nobody, in a New Rome, dares to ask awkward questions. 

and that is it. Which country should i do next?
Here is another idea that just popped into my head. Basically, it is Fatherland, but with Japan instead of Germany. I am recreating the opening to the Fatherland movie (although i do agree that it is inferior to the Book).

It has been 20 years since the Second World War ended with the failure of the Allied war in the Pacific. A triumphant Japan declared victory over East Asia. The British and Americans withdrew from the conflict. In the conquered territory, only the Chinese fought on in a bitter guerrilla war. American efforts turned to Europe. That came in the summer of 1945, with victory over Germany. Chaing Kai Shek, who had just barely escaped the Japanese, died in California early in the 50s. In the years after the war, country after country of East Asia had become part of the vast empire of Nippon. The Imperial Architects built a monument to the Emperor. Nippon's capital, Tokyo, became a Japanese showplace. As the '50s came to a close, Hirohito and Tojo were able to put a more civilized face on the Empire, but news and media continued to be tightly controlled. The '60s began with the guerrilla war in Western China still dragging on. the Imperial Government desperately needed to conclude a formal peace with the United States and Soviet Union, as well as deal with the Chinese Communists, still led by the aging Mao Zedong. Hirohito saw signs of hope in late 1960 with the election of a new President of the United States and the new Premier in the USSR. The Imperial Government believed with President Joseph Kennedy Sr. in office and Secretary Nikita Khrushchev in power, at last there would be someone with whom a deal can be struck. Now in 1964, for the first time in 20 years, Nippon's borders are being opened to the Americans and Russians. The world press is being invited to cover the Emperor's birthday celebration. There are rumors that President Kennedy and Secretary Khrushchev will attend a Nipponese-American-Soviet summit conference. An alliance with America and Russia would ensure Nippon's invulnerability... but there are other more persistent rumors that could threaten the Imperial Government's plans. There were stories that the Empire did terrible things during the war. That the official story that Chemical Weapons created by the IJA were created in Labs and not tested on hostages, as well as other stories about incidents in China were not true. There are also rumors that in the Empire, terrible things are still happening. Television, radio, and newspapers are all tightly controlled. Nobody, in a new Tokyo, dares to ask awkward questions.

Alright, that was my brief idea. like i said, i had to work with the intro to Fatherland the movie (which again, is inferior to the book) so alot of the stuff in the text may seem a bit ASB or just plain wierd. and also, i know the idea of Imperial Japan winning the war in the pacific is a longshot, but i wanted to try something new.


the First War of the Planets began in 1900 when Selenite Cown Prince Tarkor was assassinated During a visit to the Jovian Independent moon of Io by anti Selenite Rebels. the Lunar Government blamed the Ionian government for the assassination and sent an ultimatum to Io that would result in war being declared.

However, this conflict would quickly spiral out of control. a few decades before, the planet Earth was united under the British Empire, creating the Terran Empire. Over time, the Terran Empire managed to become a Solar Power, using advanced steam powered and Diesel Powered technology. However, this would bring the Terran Empire into conflict with the Martian Empire. the Martians used similar Technology to the Humans, but the Humans had evolved technologically much faster than anticipated, making the Martians try and catch up, specifically using the all-powerful Martian Star Fleet. When the Terran Empire began to send men into space, the Humans quickly made contact with the Ancient Selenite Empire on the Moon. Because of the close porximity, the Terran Empire initially tried to counquer and colonize the Moon, but decided to form an alliance instead, which resulted in the Humans siding with the Selenites in the upcoming conflict. However, The Plutonian Empire also came to the defense of Io and began to mobilize. The Plutonian Empire was a Crumbling Autocracy that was far behind the rest of the Solar System in the Diesel race. Despite this (as well as the Planet's small size) Pluto had a large empire (mainly in the Asteroid belt), however, Pluto had also lost the Great Game with the Martians, resulting in the Empire going into even more decay. the Sate of Venus also began to mobilize, knowing that the Humans would likely target them as well. Unlike the Other Solar Empires, the Venusians were Technocrats, who were run by the most intelligent in their community, and they were also enemies of the Humans due to a war with the Humans during the Human Unification War. The fear was corrected as the Terran Empire launched an invasion of Venus, but the invasion was launched by attacking Martian Allies in the Area, Bringing Mars into the War on Venus's side. Overtime, Neptune would join the war against the Human Formed Alliance, while the Kingdom of Ceres would join the war against the Alliance (despite being a former member of said alliance, the Empire of Triton would also join the Alliance after heavy consideration. 

Overtime, fighting Expanded beyond the Solar System, in the Proxima Centauri System, the Planet Aurela went to war on behalf of the Martian and Venusian dominated Federation, where they attacked Terran Colonies in the System. Back in the Solar System, Uranus waged war against Neptune and Triton, However, the largest front was the Terran Venusian Front, Mars and Venus had both attempted to launch invasions of Earth and Trench Warfare had popped up in the formerly peaceful Venusian Tropics, New inventions were being deployed to break the stalemate. For Example, the Martians had to modify their formerly powerful Tripods to be smaller and faster, and even creating floating "Mantapods" (from the 1953 War of the Worlds movie). The Plutonian Military was focusing most of its military might against the Terran Colonies in the Asteroid Belt, but the Plutonians were ill-prepared for war, and after the failed invasion of Earth by the Plutonians, the Emperor has been focusing on holding their Asteroid Colonies. 

The Stalemate would eventually break in 1903 when the Plutonian Revolution began. the revolution overthrew the Imperial Government and was led by Soldier returning from the front. After the Emperor was thrown out, the "Salvationist" party would take over, an Anti-War Party, but not before a bloody civil war between the Salvationist Army and the "Grey Faction" consisting of people who did not agree with the new order. The Salvationists would win the war and call for peace with the Alliance, but this resulted in the loss of many of its asteroid colonies

With the Fall of Pluto
, the Terran Empire thought they would achieve victory, but this would not be. in 1903, the Terran empire sent a Space Telegram to the Moon of Cronera, promising them greater influence if they joined the war on their side in the case that the Cronerans joined the war against the Federation. Not Only did they refuse, but the space telegram was intercepted by the Martians, and when Cronera found out, they declared war. Cronera is a planet in the Pleiades System that was formerly a Martian Colony which gained independence and quickly became an economic powerhouse. The massive amount of Croneran troops began to push back the Terran Troops until the Terran Empire Called for Peace. this would result in the Treaty of Venus. the Treaty would replace the Terran Imperial Government with a Technocratic Government, Disband the Selenite Empire (not blow up the moon) and the Neptunian Empire. 

the 1910s were a time of great celebration. Cronera had a massive economic boost that became known as the "Roaring Tens," However, the Cronerans would also try to stay out of galactic affairs and spend its time doing its own thing. Meanwhile, Mars and Venus had become the dominant Solar powers, making several Colonies throughout the milky way. Although Venus still lost a majority of its fighting age men on the Front, Resulting in Mars becoming more Powerful.

the 1920s were not as good as the 1910s. the Croneran Stock Market crashed resulting in Cronera, Mars, and many other planets going through a "Great Depression." This would also become a time of Nationalism. During the War, Ceres conquered most of the Asteroid Belt, However, they wanted more, and now a Nationalist Government has taken over and is now promising to bring Hegemony to the Asteroids. Back in Aurela, the Hypernationalist Military also wanted more from the War and had invaded its neighbor of Tau Ceti. Despite this, the the Solar League has done little to stop this. the Plutonians are now a Totalitarian Pariah State.


However, the most worry-some event is the Rise of the Terran Nationalist Party on Earth. the TERNAT party has taken power in the Republic using Human Supremacist Propaganda and promising to create an "Eternal Empire". Already, the Empire has been persecuting Non-Humans and the leaders of the Empire also have made plans to destroy what they believe to be the Biggest threat to Earth and the Human Race...
War of the Planets
here are a few facts about this world: 
1. Phobos and Deimos (mars's moons) had been under the control of the Martians for a long time. however, the moons were under the control primarily by the Martian Ruling Caste who exercised harsh occupation of the moon and nasty punishments for inhabitants who did not meet the strict labor quotas. After the WOTP, the moons were given independence. However, Deimos had a large Pro-Martian Population, which resulted in Deimos being returned to Martian Control
2. Saturn's Moon of Titan joined the war on the Federation side, only to lose most of its Military in the War against the Selenites and Humans. now they are in the Terran Sphere of influence, where they have been promised greater influence if they fight for them
3. Mercury is now under a Nationalist regime after a bloody civil war between the Terran and Ceres backed Nationalists, and the Plutonian backed Salvationists. 
4. Ganymede was originally under the Control of the Selenite Empire. After the War, Ganymede gained independence.

Note: couldn't fit the word "Resurgence" into the title)

im sure many of you (especially if you are American) have heard of Independence Day Resurgence, but I am also sure that you may not have heard of War of the Worlds Goliath. Basically, War of the Worlds Goliath was a sequel to War of the Worlds by the independent Film Company "Tripod Entertainment" about a world where the world (not just the UK) was invaded by Mars, resulting in the world using Martian technology to become an advanced steampunk world. But now, the Martians are coming back, and they apparently have a vaccine. In Independence Day Resurgence, the world was invaded by Aliens, resulting in the world using Alien technology to become an advanced Solar Punk world. But now, the Aliens are coming back, and they apparently have a Firewall. Now you may have noticed the similarities between those too sentences, and that is the point I am making. First of all, I recommend checking out both movies, if you like one of them, then check out the other. Also, Major Spoilers for both movies, because i am going to talk about almost everything during this comparison. So, let the invasion begin!!

  • Both movie take place after Aliens invaded the earth and nearly destroyed Humanity, only for a Virus to bring the two races down and stop the invasion. afterwards, Humanity manages to rebuild, and with alien technology, become a more advanced civilization.
  • The Main Human Characters are a multi-national team (in Goliath, we have a Russian, a Canadian, an Englishman, an Irishman, an Ottoman, a few Germans, as well as multiple Americans and other historical figures like the Red Baron. in Resurgence, we have a few Chinese people, a Central African Warlord, alot of Americans, and Many others). 
  • the Aliens are stronger and faster than they were before (the martians machines have been modified with the Leg Joints being replaced with Wheels, and the Alien Tech in Resurgence are much more deadly than in the second movie)
  • there are a few scenes with dogfights between the Aliens and Humans 
  • there is a large amount of time spent deep in enemy territory (in Goliath, it is a power plant occupied by the aliens, and in Resurgence, it is the alien mothership)
  • the final battle is a massive attack on the main human base by the aliens (in Goliath, its New York, and in Resurgence, it is Area 51) and the aliens use an even bigger alien (in Goliath, it is a large ship, in Resurgence, it is the Queen)
  • Both movies have a genre switch from the original focus to more of a Combat Focus.
