Imperial Republic of MalaysiaEdit
The Imperial Republic of Malaysia is a defunct republic, first formed in 1944 following the Japanese occupation of Malaysia in the end of the war. However, during the Southeast Asian Theater of World War III, sparked by the Cold War, the emperor was assassinated and Malaysia was liberated.
In 1944, World War II appeared to be close to an Allied victory. However, in this timeline, the Imperial Japanese had constructed a large electromagnetic pulse weapon, the thunder machine, in the Malay Archipelago. In June of 1944, he used this device which subsequently helped them conquer the country of Malaysia, and a step toward gaining control of the western reaches of the Pacific. However, following the post-World War II constitution in Japan, the Japanese appointed Emperor of Malaysia, Takuma Oshiro, formed a pact with China and became a leading socialist state.
1945 - 1969Edit
Tokyo-born Commander Takuma Oshiro was appointed Emperor of Imperial Malaysia by the Japanese on 1 August 1944, 3 days after the detonation of the thunder machine. At this point, they began exiling residents of Malaysia in an attempt to complete annex the country from the outside world as Chinese territory.
In the next five years, almost 250,000 people fled the country, prompted by military action. However, the Americans launched several bombs on the megapolitical Taiheiyo Belt in Japan, killing over five million people instantly and injuring another two and a half. The Empire of Japan crumbled.
Oshiro, grief-stricken, met with the residing Chairman of the Communist Party of China, Mao Zedong, to see if he could create a strong coalition in exchange for power over Taiwan. Zedong refused, and so the Imperial Malaysian Army, launched an invasion of Taiwan in 1948, finally seizing power in 1951..
Along the course of the 1950s, the republic closed off its borders; however, in response to this, Indonesia and Borneo, backed by England and the United States, launched an attack in 1955 which weakened the Republic and gave birth to the Indo-Malay conflict, which ended in 1960 upon the Malaysian invasion of Indonesia.
Throughout the 1960s, the conflict in Vietnam spread, and, with massive support of North Vietnam from Soviet Union, it turned into a Cold War-sparked World War III, with Cambodia, Laos, Burma and Thailand becoming wrapped up into an all-out proxy war.
Finally, on March 3, 1966, the war moved to Malaysia, and Emperor Oshiro was shot dead by a Russian soldier, ending the reign of the IRM.
That's all I've got so far. There will be more.
