Hokay: here's another old Soc.History.What-if inspired map, from an old James Nicoll (of English language quote fame) scenario. Better Anglo-German and worse Anglo-French relations post 1870 lead to a *Fashoda war with Germany and Britain on the same side: the longer term results are a British-German-Japanese-Austrian alliance fighting a WWII* in which the US, France and Russia are on the other side: thanks to the US duplicating the German atom bomb before the Europeans were able to ramp up to mass production and delivery, the US managed to pull off a partial win, but France and Russia went down hard. The German effort to install a puppet regime in Russia did not go well, and eventually the Russian Workers and Peasants Socialist Union (by 1995 "ramped down" to the Social Republic) was recognized by the US. The next few decades saw the US backing independence and anti-Colonial movements all over.
By 1995, the colonialist Alliance For Order and Progress is on the rocks. The British have lost India, and the Japanese have pulled out of China, although they are still working hard to keep the place divided. The Germans have let most of their colonial empire achieve at least mostly self-government, and the new socialist-dominated German parliament has made it clear they are not at all interested in spending taxpayer Marks on propping up British "feudal" arrangements in Africa and elsewhere. (Now Very Federal Austria, Germany's Boy Sidekick, in this case is happy to follow the German lead). Only Japan is determined to hold onto its remaining posessions, and even in Genteel-Fascist Britain there is some doubt as to the sustainability of most of the Empire.
Minor details: German Tanganyka is a German "Rhodesia", which has switched its loyalties from Berlin to London after the socialists expressed a certain hostility to the local methods of White Man's Burdening. Central Asia is rather more secular and russified than OTL. The US is rather "leftier" than OTL given it's self-identification as an anti-colonial power, and has a larger African, Asian, etc. immigrant minority. Manchurian indepdence movements are currently divided between "join China" and "strike out on out own, China is a mess for the forseeable future" factions.
