–Joseph Stalin, 1944

  • A year after the 1921 Imperial Conference, the Declaration of the Imperial Federation is announced, creating a federal union to replace the existing British Empire.
  • Sergei Kirov is never assassinated by Leonid Nikolaev, precluding Stalin's escalation of political repression in the Soviet Union and the events of the Great Purge.
  • After World War II, US OSS agents assassinated Mao Zedong while visiting Beijing in 1946. In the power vacuum, Wang Ming comes to power and becomes the new leader of united Communist China.
