Pax Germania. by lamnay Pax Germania. by lamnay
Finally, a large updated map of my Pax Germania timeline.

In this world the central powers win a relatively quick victory in the West, and are able to achieve hegemony over Eastern Europe in their equivalent of WW1.

In the 30's the central powers and the Entente clash again in the Second European War, France an the UK are utterly defeated and loose most of their Empires to the central powers.

Things remain relatively quiet in the 40's and early 50's as Germany sets its sights on the Americas, increasing its influence until 1954 when they quickly conquer the United States (apart from a small enclave set up by the Canadians in Toronto).

Buoyed by their success Germany turns to China, the final possible threat. The wealth and resources of China could give the Entente a significant advantage were they to get organised, so in 1958 Germany invaded, and found they had severely underestimated the Chinese, with victory only coming in 1971 with millions of German soldiers dead. To secure China, Germany had had to call on it's allies. Austria-Hungary's had honed it's counterinsurgency skills in the Balkans and had managed to secure much of Southern China, with it being the least restive part of the whole nation. However, whenever the Germans tried to take over control the Chinese revolted. Germany is hesitant to transfer "Austrian China" directly to the duel monarchy as it would set a precedent that Finland, Turkey and the Netherlands could all try to exploit.

Meanwhile, Russia has been at war with itself since 1917. The White forces were much more organised with more support, allowing the war to continue for almost 80 years until in 1994, with the balance tipping in the Bolsheviks favour, the Central Powers invaded European Russia, setting up the Provisional Government of Russia. In Siberia the Monarchist and Mensheviks continue to battle the Communists.

To protect themselves from the central powers, without provoking them by joining the Entente (and visa versa) several diverse nations banded together to form the Non-aligned alliance, who's shared nuclear arsenal should discourage anyone form interfering with their sovereignty and neutrality.

I never took the time to detail the things I find implausible about this, and I won't do it now because I'm lazy as fuck and not feeling too well, but eh, I do like all the gray.

I have another question.
Argentina was a friendly country of the German Empire.
If Germany have won the war, it is likely that Argentina had recovered the Falkland Islands.

Not really, Argentina never fell to the junta so they never had need to distract the people with claims they own the Falklands.
Argentina still officially claims the islands in my timeline, but there not really serious about retaking them.
The Argentinians know any attack would bring the whole Commonwealth, France, Japan and Siberian Republic down upon them, which could lead to a nuclear Third Entente-Central Powers War.

Lastly Argentina's still pretty friendly with Entente and Britain in particular. The joining the Central Powers is looked at a lot like Finland joining the Axis. A shame, but there are no hard feelings.

Sorry, but this is a mistake.
The problem of the Falkland Islands, is very old, and besides it is more likely that Argentina would have demanded the return of the Falklands after the defeat of Britain in 1918.
From 1916 to 1945 in Argentina always had a great sympathy for Germany.
Because people hated the British Empire and the UK companies had monopoly in Argentina.
The problem for Argentina was that Great Britain won the two world wars.
If Britain had been weakened only slightly, Argentina had taken advantage of the situation.

The political context in my country has always been complicated. My English is not very good and I can not explain it better (I do not if you can speak Spanish).

Sorry but I don't know Spanish. You're English is fine though.
What you've said might be true, I don't know as much about Argentina's history as I could, but the world changed dramatically in this timeline.

The Western Front in WW1 collapsed in 1916 when the Germans took Paris. Overseas however the Germans were mostly defeated and the Royal Navy still had supremacy and Argentina would have been in no place to demand territory.
Again in 1939 when Britain was invaded Argentina had not yet become a German ally and what was left of the Royal Navy was still more than enough to defeat the ARA and the RN has only got stronger since.

Argentina only allied with Germany because Brazil and Chile already had, and they were worried that they might try land grabs.

This can take your attention maybe as different point of view, you can take a look at :

Thank you, some of my earlier work is rather impractical.

I as someone from a once supremely powerful nation that is now much weaker I can sympathise with those people who want a new Turkish Empire, and those Russians who want to bring back the Soviet Union because of how much weaker the Russian Federation seems.

I'm and internationalist and prefer unification to Balkanization, but centring it around religion and ethnicity is a recipe for trouble.

Is Germany the sole superpower in this alternate history? Because there isn't any country that has its power level.

Pretty much, but Japan, France, Britain, Turkey and the Netherlands all are wealthy and have good power projection too.
