Zzzzz... - This has gone from being a how to guide on how to beat Japan, to becoming China, as it should have been. So good markets minus autocracy. Essentially Taiwan 40 years early.
Leviathan07 - The pictures are from 1947 when they were still on the mainland. The political system is more like Taiwan in the early 80's minus the martial law. It's mostly one party but there is pluralism.
Ahriman - The election breakdown by group, (minorities, overseas Chinese, etc) is in the real constitution. The stuff about proxies is something that I just made up, but I wanted to have something that shows that this is still fairly corrupt and the laws on paper still don't match the reality. I have to write walls of text as the actual gameplay aspect is just June 2nd 1947 research "Yong Li Alkali Company has completed their research into Plastics."
Nathan Madien - I found the election pictures and then stuff just wrote itself. In the actual game, since I'd hit pretty much optimal sliders in 1945, I just started shifting over to Democratic.
Van5 - Your compliments are still appreciated.
Tanzhang (譚張) - The long arc of history into now is going to be the next and final update after this. As for Zhang Xueliang, Why wouldn't he be? In this timeline, the Xi'an incident never happened. As far as the KMT is concerned, Zhang Xueliang is the heroic general who helped them win the Central Plains war and has, since then, served with distinction in both the government and the army.
Maj. von Mauser - It can't be dead, it's still in your signature.
