  1. WI: Socialist Realism not made official art style of USSR

    I was reading up on the history of Soviet art, and a pretty obvious question came to me: what would it be like if the USSR never adopted the "Socialist Realist" art style as official, and therefore never suppressed alternative art styles? If you don't know, after the Russian revolution a variety...
  2. Best case for Russia/USSR after 1917

    With a PoD of around March 1917 (when Tsar Nicholas II abdicated the throne of Russia), what would have been the best possible outcome for the Russian Empire/Soviet Union by the close of the 20th century? Avoiding war and/or keeping the USSR intact is not required if you do not feel it is...

    DBQ: Why exactly did Communism succeed in Japan?

    So I understand that there were a number of circumstances that led to a rise in popularity with socialism and communism in Japan, including the very costly Japanese victory in the Russo-Japanese War and many people feeling cheated out of expansion in Asia when Britain and France split German...

    AHC: Germany, Italy, and Japan all communist

    I know this might sound hard to achieve, but how can you get the three countries that would come to form the Axis Powers in OTL to become communist at a similar space of time before a potential WW2 (if it would exist in this scenario), while still having the USSR exist? Try not to go "ASB" or...

  9. WI/AHC: A far-right equivalent of communism?

    So I'm going to preference this by saying I don't know all that much about communism, Marxism or socialism, so anything I get wrong is an honest mistake. Anyway, the challenge is simple: create a far-right socioeconomic policy that's the equivalent of communism. By that I mean an exportable...

    Fate of the caste system in a communist India.

    Exactly as the title says, in the event communism were to come to power in India before 1950, what would become of the caste system?

  14. Realistic best case Scenario for International Communism after 1945

    What is the best case scenario for communism with a POD after 1945? By that I mean, how many nations could realistically adopt marxism-leninism or at least some other form of socialism after 1945? Is a red US in the cards? Which european nations are? This is not really a "Soviets win the Cold...

  18. Reverse Cold War: Anime in Communist Japan

    Lets just say the Cold War was reversed where the Bolshevik revolution fails in Russia, but there is also an attempt to over throw the United States government and turn it Communist and they succeed.
