  1. Effects on Asia if China wins 1st Sino-Japanese war

    How does this effect Qing Chinas legitimacy? How does this effect Koreas independence? Does this prevent Imperial Japan before it begins?
  2. PC: India as rich as otl China

    With a 1900 POD can India’s economy develop as successfully as China did otl? Or is this considered ASB? Both countries have similar populations yet Chinas GDP is around 6 times greater than that of India.
  3. Is it possible to have a prosperous Mexico with a 1900 POD

    And by prosperous I mean same GDP per capita and quality of life of a Western European nation and no massive drug cartels that control entire states.
  4. AHC: Most populated Iceland possible

    With any POD after the first Viking settlements, what’s the most populated Iceland could have gotten?
  5. LGBT rights in a surviving USSR

    Needless to say, LGBT rights in most post soviet nations are pretty dire, but if the fall of the USSR never occurs in an ATL, how would things change? The USSR liked to portray itself as morally superior to the west, but in the early 2000s countries in western Europe were starting to legalize...
  6. AHC: Africa same GDP per capita as South America

    Is this possible with a 1900 POD or is this considered ASB? For reference, the average GDP per capita of South America is around 7,200 USD. While Africa is around 1,500 USD.
  7. Would China eventually democratize if the KMT won the civil war?

    And if they do democratize when would it be? Would it be similar to Taiwan's timeline?
  8. How powerful would a surviving Austria-Hungary be?

    In either a no WW1 or Central Powers WW1 victory timeline, how potentially powerful could a surviving Austria-Hungary be in terms of economic, cultural, scientific and military powers?
  9. AHC: Turn China into a Football/Soccer world power

    Football/Soccer is one of the most popular sports in China and despite their massive population of 1.4 billion people, they have had no success (on the men's side atleast, women use to be good). Even compared to other Asian countries that have significantly less people (Japan/South Korea) they...
  10. AHC: United States with 500 million population

    With a 1900 POD whats the most realistic way to get a USA with 500million people by modern day? IOTL USA has around 330 million people, so an extra 170 million would be necessary. How would this extra population effect the country and what region would most of these excess citizens locate to?
  11. How does Japan respond to losing the Russo-Japanese war?

    IOTL, Russia losing the RJW almost caused a successful revolution. Also, despite Japan winning the RJW, it caused social unrest in the country and significant financial troubles. If Japan loses the RJW, how does Japanese society respond? Would there be a revolution like there was in Russia...
  12. AHC: Australia with a population of 100 million people

    IOTL Australia has about 25 million, with a 1900 POD, is there any non-ASB scenario Australia could reach 100 million by modern day?
  13. How powerful could a surviving modern day Ottoman Empire be?

    Would an Ottoman state be able to conquer all of Arabia post 1914? IIRC all of Arabia at that time wasn’t part of the OE but also was not a unified state
  14. Would something like the EU ever exist in a no world wars TL?

    In a TL where the last major war in Europe was the second Balkan war, would a more peaceful Europe ever conceive something like the EU?
  15. AHC: Richer more developed Sub Sahara Africa

    Well it’s definitely more challenging with a 1900 POD, but there are tons of interesting and realistic scenarios where SSA has a better future than OTL where things have gone pretty roughly
