More ASB craziness. The world of Red Alert, prior to the outbreak of World War III. The year is 1975.
Changes between this map and the first include more nations. As with the OTL (our time line) Word War II, Red Alert's version would see the ending of colonial empires. Hence nations all over Africa, and the freedom of Vietnam, India, and the creation of Pakistan and other nations.
India and Pakistan don't like each other. China is a weaker state than OTL. It's controlled by the Nationalist since Mao cannot receive aide from the Soviet Union after its defeat in 1950. Japan and China fight for years after WWII, with the Japanese withdrawing from coastal China like the US did from Vietnam in OTL. They have however hold onto the northern region and moved into the former Dutch East Indies, taking advantage of the post war independence chaos.
Iran becomes an Islamic Republic in a revolution similar to the one in 1979, however much earlier. This leaves them at odds with Europe, America, the Middle East, and Soviet Union. Iraq becomes a WSA member due to Iran's revolution.
The Soviet Union's defeat in the first game leads to the lost of the Baltic States and Sahkalin Island to Japan. However in the post war period the USSR regains control of the Central Asian states and the Ukraine. A new Soviet alliance has sprung up around the globe. Most recently in Central America, paving the way for the invasion of the USA in the game.
Europe is more united then ever. Poland's borders have been slightly readjusted with land taken from the USSR after World War II. US and European relations are poor. Both are competing as Superpowers so their own rivaly helps the Soviet Union rebuild its power base.
A note, even if a country is labeled as an American ally, it still has its own independence. Other countries not labeled as US or European allies but independently can also be considered allies.
