TMBE - timeline 9C-081
9C-081 (Finworld)
Population: 3.5 billion
Languages: Finnish, Swedish, Saami
Ethnicities: 92% Finnish, 5% Swedish, 2% Other
Before the Trans-Multiversal-Breach-Event timeline 9C-081 was a distant timeline that contained a much colder, swampier version of Earth where humanity, or any known sapient life, never managed to arise. The billions-years peace was broken however after the TMB-event when three-and-half billion Finns suddenly were transported into the world along with the buildings and infrastructure of Finland it's self, which appeared where the nation would have been located IOTL.
Like most other worlds effected by the event, this world quickly fell into chaos immediately after the event had subsided and experienced half a decade of total economic failure. By late-2005 however after major economic restructuring the economy once again began to stabilize and grow. Throughout the later half of the 2000's colonization efforts sponsored by the government began outside of the immediat

Timeline 1A-081 was the epicentre of the Breach Event and as a result suffered the most damage and change. This timeline's Earth was transported to a completely different location in space altogether, and
experienced intense quantum fluctuations that brought creatures and beings from other planets and universes, the effects of these fluctuations linger today as the world has become somewhat of a hub-world between universes.
The population transfer of this world was seemingly very arbitrary and somewhat random and still isn't fully understood today. This world had the entire human population of every nation except Taiwan removed, and then experienced a massive influx of 2.5 billion former Taiwanese citizens as well as a number of religious and mystical institutions, including Tibetan Buddhists, Afghani Sufis, occultists, neopagans, and many other unorthodox groups, almost

Trans-Muliversal-Breach-Event
The Trans-Multiversal-Breach-Event was a large-scale quantum phenomenon that occurred in timeline 1A-081 and spread to effect over 650 separate timelines, most of which had a POD within five years or less of each other. The event initially occurred on June 17th 2000 and lasted about four months, during which large-scale population transfers occurred between timelines, in some cases completely depopulating entire Earths. The exact cause of the catastrophe still remains unknown but it's origin and lingering effects continue to be investigated by the United Worlds.
In the immediate aftermath of the event  varying degrees of societal collapse ensued in the worlds effected by the TMBE. Those with little remaining population degenerated into into a lawless frontiers while those with a large populations added or remaining experienced intense unrest and confusion.

The shift first became apparent in the mainstream with the Brexit referendum and Trump victory, and continued into 2017 with Norbert Hofer's, Geert Wilder's, and Marine Le Pen's victories in their respective countries. Despite the sharp change in political affairs many were still left completely bewildered when Adolf Hitler won the 2017 German election, Hitler, who had appeared in Berlin in 2014, had quickly become a national and international celebrity and was considered by many to be the world's most dedicated method actor.

Tears in rain
As the 1980's began it was apparent an era was ending, the pessimistic but tranquil slump of the 1970's was ending and giving way to a new, more turbulent time. The great powers were violently awakened from their detente in 1979 with the advent of the Iranian and Afghan revolutions, the former leading to the devastating Iran-Iraq War and the latter leading to a long drawn out and disastrous Soviet intervention. Not many were prepared when the instability spread to East Asia however, reigniting the powder keg of the Korean War that had lay dormant for so many decades.
The first tensions on the Korean Peninsula began in early 1980 with the surprise death of long-reigning dictator Kim Il Sung, and his relatively inexperienced son Kim Jong Il's quick ascension to the throne. Kim Jong Il, feeling paranoid about Southern infiltrators and facing growing pressure from the military leadership would subsequently launch a thorough purge of the DPRK government.

Gone Wrong (pt 2)
The world at the dawn of the 2030's was an uncertain place, over the course of the last two decades the old world order had violently collapsed, leaving in it's place a new international order. Following the fall of the United States the strife in the western sphere had culminated in the formation of the Transcontinental Federation, a military, economic, and political union between the newly formed North American Union, and the reinvented European Union. Since it's genesis in 2028 the Federation has expanded it's reach into Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, granting "associate state" statues to it's heavily Balkanized puppet states in the Middle East, as well as creating a strong sphere of influence in Africa and South America.
Not all were willing to bend the knee to the Federation however, a long drawn-out diplomatic crisis would unfold over Japan when controversy over the nation's remilitarization came to head in 2031, leading to various embassies being closed on both sides

Gone Wrong
As the 2000's ended and gave way to the 2010's many felt an era of renewed hope had begun, with many putting their faith in newly elected US president Barack Obama, who made lofty promises of delivering the United States from the warmongering and economic woes of the Bush era into a new age of prosperity, rationality, and tolerance. The decade didn't play out as many optimists had hoped however, during 2010-2011 the "Arab Spring" would erupt throughout the Middle East, resulting many regime changes that proved to almost suspiciously convenient for the US. Things would end up taking a much darker turn a few years later in 2014 with the outbreak of Ebola in west Africa and the rise of the Islamic State, a radical Islamo-fascist insurgency, in Syria. Syria, which had been undergoing a particularly violent civil war between the Russian-aligned government and the US-backed rebels since the Arab Spring in 2011, would cause major controversy as displaced Syrians made their way into Europe and

Fallout (20th century)
In September 1952 republican nominee Dwight D. Eisenhower would suffer a series of major heart attacks just mere moths before the general election, although he survived this ordeal he wasn't in well enough health to continue running and subsequently dropped out of the race. This was quite the inconvenience for the GOP, who had been banking on Eisenhower's immense popularity and were now forced to appoint his unpopular runner up, Robert A Taft, as the republican nominee. As many expected Taft flopped and ended up losing the general election to the almost equally unpopular democratic candidate Adlai Stevenson, who's unpopularity was made immediately worse when he, in a misguided attempted to put his noninterventionist policies into practice, pulled US-forces from the Korean peninsula and negotiated a conditional surrender with North Korea and Red China. Just over a year later the South Korean state predictably collapsed after a Soviet-DPRK backed coup overthrew Syngman Rhee's government

The Oceanian Revolution
The 1950's were a dark time for the nations that made up the so called western world, just when things were beginning to look optimistic with the defeat of the axis powers and the subsequent economic boom that followed in the US and to a lesser extent the UK, it seemed war and suffering would once again rear it's  head.
Some countries had it worse then others, France, West Germany, and Scandinavia for example were just emerging from the desolation of WWII when the Red Army swarmed over the Iron Curtain during the Soviet January-offensive of 1955. The invasion had occurred out of retaliation for the nuclear bombardment campaign that NATO had been running from Turkey. Despite being somewhat bogged down in Asia in the face of the long drawn out Sino/Korean War, the forces of the Soviet Union had quickly overwhelmed Turkey and the nations of Western Europe, only facing real opposition in Franco's Spain.

History of human space exploration and habitation
First space race: 1957-1998
Around the middle of the 20th century Earth was divided by two competing superpowers that had risen out of the ashes of the World War era, the Soviet Union and United States of America. The subsequent tech race and military buildup between the two states would lead the USSR to launch of Sputnik 1, the first human-made artificial satellite to enter Earth's orbit, a few years later in 1961 Yuri Gagarin would become the first man to enter orbit. By the early-to-middle 1960's the USA was determined to catch up to the USSR in the space race, and after sending up their own astronauts and satellites the US conducted a series of twelve moon landings between 1969 and 1972.
By the 1970's relations between the two blocs had improved significantly, during this period the two countries would even conduct a joint operation during the Apollo-Soyuz mission of 1975. Unfortunately however the lack of competition would lead to

1984
One of the first major conflicts of the post WWII era began on the Korean Peninsula, and with Cold War antagonism beginning to reach it's zenith many people quickly realized just how high the stakes were.
The war began when the Soviet aligned north Korean state attacked the US aligned southern state that had only been established a few years before. The North Korean offensive was swift and effective, taking the majority of the peninsula in the in only a few months. However, before the communists could completely overrun the the last pocket of resistance an American lead UN coalition would intervene and push the northern forces to the brink of the Yalu river, seeing that communist defeat was inevitable, the People's Republic of China (which had just emerged victorious from a civil war and was still high off revolutionary spirit) decided to lead their own intervention.
The Chinese intervention would escalate the conflict to new heights as the US military, under the command of Douglas Mac

9C-081 (Finworld)

Before the Trans-Multiversal-Breach-Event timeline 9C-081 was a distant timeline that contained a much colder, swampier version of Earth where humanity, or any known sapient life, never managed to arise. The billions-years peace was broken however after the TMB-event when three-and-half billion Finns suddenly were transported into the world along with the buildings and infrastructure of Finland it's self, which appeared where the nation would have been located IOTL.

Like most other worlds effected by the event, this world quickly fell into chaos immediately after the event had subsided and experienced half a decade of total economic failure. By late-2005 however after major economic restructuring the economy once again began to stabilize and grow. Throughout the later half of the 2000's colonization efforts sponsored by the government began outside of the immediate range of habitation in Europe/Western Eurasia, it was also around this time that contact was made with the United Worlds bringing this world into direct communication and travel with most of the worlds effected by the TMB-event.

Today timeline 9C-081 is one of the nicer and more developed worlds in the UW, and continues on a path of economic growth, it has also since earned the nickname "Finworld" in reference to it's population.

Timeline 1A-081 was the epicentre of the Breach Event and as a result suffered the most damage and change. This timeline's Earth was transported to a completely different location in space altogether, and

The population transfer of this world was seemingly very arbitrary and somewhat random and still isn't fully understood today. This world had the entire human population of every nation except Taiwan removed, and then experienced a massive influx of 2.5 billion former Taiwanese citizens as well as a number of religious and mystical institutions, including Tibetan Buddhists, Afghani Sufis, occultists, neopagans, and many other unorthodox groups, almost all of which ended up in East Asia. After the transfer had ended this world, like most others effected, fell into a brief chaos were looting and rioting were the norm, due however to this world's comparatively low and homogenous population law and order were soon restored by the Taiwanese government in 2003 and in 2005 the United Worlds made contact and integrated the world into the UW general assembly and began studying the timeline.

After joining the UW multiple probes and telescope observations documented the planet's new position in space and determined it to be on the edge of the observable universe relative to the Sol System. The world has since become one of the more peaceful and prosperous worlds effected by the TMBE and has earned the name "Tópos Latreías" in reference to the spiritual organizations present on the planet.

Since then the organization as admitted ever world they have come across that contains a functional society.

2016 represented a turning point in global politics and social attitudes, some say it was the inevitable backlash against the European refugee crisis and PC culture. The shift first became apparent in the mainstream with the Brexit referendum and Trump victory, and continued into 2017 with Norbert Hofer's, Geert Wilder's, and Marine Le Pen's victories in their respective countries. Despite the sharp change in political affairs many were still left completely bewildered when Adolf Hitler won the 2017 German election, Hitler, who had appeared in Berlin in 2014, had quickly become a national and international celebrity and was considered by many to be the world's most dedicated method actor.

By September 2017 the Schengen zone, which at this point only existed on paper was formally abolished along with the EU parliament, reducing the European Union into a currency bloc and free trade zone, what followed was a massive campaign of remilitarization and mass deportations in in continental Europe. Sweden, which had managed to retain it's liberal government became a haven for those escaping deportation, causing the nation considerable strain. In November 2019 just a year after it's former withdrawal from NATO[1], Germany successfully pursued Putin's Russia into ceding them Kaliningrad in exchange for monetary compensation and financial aid, merely months later in 2020 the long denied Austrian-German unification would occur after the two countries spent the three years cozy up to each other.

In 2022 on the eve of Germany's nuclear proliferation Sweden would vote to leave the European Union and three months later fall into a civil war over political repression, a year later Poland would hold a similar referendum and leave as well, feeling unfairly subjected to German hegemony. In 2026, after repeated border skirmishes Germany declared war on Poland, Poland being a NATO country meant that this had the predictable affect of the US declaring war on Germany and sending military aid to Poland, America didn't want to get into a conventional war with a nation newly equipped with hydrogen bombs however so no troops or bomb were sent into Germany proper. By the war's end Hitler had captured a bridge from East Prussia into rest of the fatherland and had forced a terrified Poland to cling to a rather indifferent Russia for security.

By the waning years of the 2020's the world was an absurd place, Europe had experienced a second wave of right-wing populism, lead by none other then Adolf Hitler (who people are now beginning to think was maybe just more then a dedicated improv artist), and in the United States Kayne West had just completed his second term and allowed Kim Kardashian to take the reigns of America and become the nation's first female president. In Asia things have been comparably a lot more normal, China flounders with it's failing economy and occasionally buts heads with a remilitarized semi-isolationist Japan complete with a new constitution. North Korea still exists although is now much less isolationist after a free trade agreement was established in 2021 much to the world's surprise that has rapidly been modernizing the nation. As the world prepares for a new decade the populations of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Switzerland continue to bulge as people from all around the world seek a less cartoonishly insane society.

[1] France was the first to leave NATO, this had a domino effect as Europe's largest nations left the organization. Many remained however, particularly those bordering Russia.
Er ist wieder da
Based on the 2014 movie and 2012 book "Look who's back" (Er ist wieder da"), specifically the implication at the end of the story that Hitler would get back into politics.

Just a disclaimer, I'm not a neo-nazi nor do I have a very high opinion of Hitler or his reich so this alternate history scenario does not in any way reflect my views. I also tried to downplay some of the darker implications that Hitler coming back to power would have for the sake of maintaining a comedic tone.

As the 1980's began it was apparent an era was ending, the pessimistic but tranquil slump of the 1970's was ending and giving way to a new, more turbulent time. The great powers were violently awakened from their detente in 1979 with the advent of the Iranian and Afghan revolutions, the former leading to the devastating Iran-Iraq War and the latter leading to a long drawn out and disastrous Soviet intervention. Not many were prepared when the instability spread to East Asia however, reigniting the powder keg of the Korean War that had lay dormant for so many decades.

The first tensions on the Korean Peninsula began in early 1980 with the surprise death of long-reigning dictator Kim Il Sung, and his relatively inexperienced son Kim Jong Il's quick ascension to the throne. Kim Jong Il, feeling paranoid about Southern infiltrators and facing growing pressure from the military leadership would subsequently launch a thorough purge of the DPRK government. Crisis erupted in 1981 when the purge uncovered a fairly extensive South-Korean spy ring operating within the DPRK, the northern government immediately detained the infiltrators and demanded the South's surrender in the long dormant Korean War in exchange for the their safe return. Rather than heeding Kim Jung Il's demands, South Korea demanded the return of their espionage agents with the threat of renewed military hostility.

The standoff between the two states became a global crisis when the US and Soviet Union got involved, American president Ronald Reagan proudly stated that any aggression against South Korea would be met with an uncompromising military response, the Soviet Union, dealing with internal strife and a botched intervention in Afghanistan, acted with caution despite their staunch support for North Korea. The stand off would last until February 1982, when an otherwise isolated skirmish on the DMZ escalated into full blown armed conflict between the two Koreas, by March an American-lead NATO coalition intervened in the conflict much in the same way they did in 1950. Unlike the first Korean War however, the western militaries now had access to technology and tactics much different then those utilized in the first Korean War, and as such the strategy used by the US-NATO forces involved extensive bombing of infrastructure and military or leadership complexes as well as various aquatic and aerial landings. During the chaos of the war the People's Republic of China would come into direct conflict with it's rival government in Taiwan, leading to cooling relations with the west.

By June 1986 the last fighting remnants of the DPRK surrendered and the remaining leadership was dissolved. The entire peninsula was brought under direct UN-military rule shortly afterwards and seemingly victorious South Korean despot Park Chung-hee[1] was forced to abdicate. By December 1987 the Korean Fifth Republic was proclaimed and by January 1988 the entire peninsula voted for their first head of state, soon after the then-booming US and Japanese economies began pouring money into the country as the first phase of the "Asian development plan". Later that same year the embarrassed and faltering USSR would experience a KGB-backed coup as communist hardliners seized control of the state from newly appointed "progressive reformer" Mikhail Gorbachev.

Despite the best efforts of the new Soviet regime to stabilize Russia's position on the world stage the 1989 oil crash decimated the Soviet economy and if not for the desperate and brutal measures taken by the Soviet leadership, would have thrown the country into free fall. In 1990 Saddam's Iraq would invade Kuwait for the same reasons as our timeline, the USSR was quick to deploy troops into the Gulf and aid their ally Iraq, this had the effect of escalating the conflict into full blown war between Iraq and Saudi Arabia. By 1994 Saudi Arabia and Iraq finally agreed to a peace treaty on terms that Iraq be allowed to annexe Kuwait as long as Soviet-Iraqi troops withdraw from occupied Saudi territories. By the mid-1990's the USSR was bankrupted by the Gulf War and it's continued war in Afghanistan while the US and Japanese[2] economies soared to heights previously unimaginable, the people behind the Iron Curtain were starving and facing state suppression not seen since the Stalin-era.

The situation in Eastern Europe reached a boiling point in 1996, when after half a decade of severe abuse the people of the Eastern Bloc collectively rose up against their Russian oppressors and begun what would become the Eastern Revolts. After the rebellion got off of it's feet nations and organizations all around the world found themselves rising to the occasion as a mass influx of weapons, armaments and money entered Eastern Europe. By 2001 the revolution had arguably been a success, the Soviet Union had drastically receded in size as almost all of it's constituent minorities declared themselves sovereign, and in the case of Karelia the majority Russian population opted to join Finland rather in what would become a rather messy debacle. The Warsaw Pact had ceased to exist, in it's place appeared a patchwork of unstable and impoverished states suffering through coups and revolutions on a yearly basis in some cases. This didn't detour the UN from deploying NATO troops in said countries in an attempt to ward off future Soviet aggression, by 2003 Germany had successfully reunited, although with severe economic repercussions and various Eastern European states had joined the European Economic Community.

By the middle-2000's the constant economic upswing in the US and Japan meant that consumer and government technology was lightyears ahead of what OTL was capable of at the time, VR, computing, propulsion, and holographic technology was becoming widespread in westernized society along with limited usage of cybernetic and biological body modifications. Unrest began in mainland China in 2006 due in part to the Chinese masses being exposed to the progress and decadence of the west though illegal internet usage and exposure to Hong Kong and Macau's success, which in this timeline weren't returned to the PRC due to the nation's actions during the Second Korean War, which also had the effect of revoking the western diplomacy and investment that had been built up during the 1970's. In June 2006 Chinese students, workers, and other activists took to the streets of Southern China and began a "peaceful" revolution, a year later the PRC begrudgingly withdrew the PLA and de facto allowed the region to secede due to their own internal problems, in December 2007 the leadership of Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, as well as the leaders of the revolution met in Taipei and negotiated the future of southern China. In January 2009 the constitution was ratified and the Republic of China, a successor state to the Taiwanese ROC, was declared a sovereign nation by the UN.

In 2012, after years of deliberation, the Asiatic Union was declared as a currency and economic union between Japan, Korea, and the ROC, managed by the AU parliamentary commission, three years later in 2015 it would merge with ASEAN, eight years later in 2023 North and South China would reunite after the liquidation of the CCP a year prior, bringing the entirety of East Asia into the sphere of AU-Japanese hegemony. The 2010's would see Asia become the new leader of the world in terms of human development, economic influence and cultural influence, the status of who was the new world hegemon would be symbolically illustrated during the second wave of moon landings in 2016-2019, which were carried out privately by Japanese corporations, the US however would begin to see it's sharp decline in this era.

In the years prior to the Chinese reunification, the United States would see a mass exodus of blue-collar jobs into Latin America as "the economic climate of our southern allies grows and stabilizes", this combined with the already creeping force of automation caused massive job-loss in the US and triggered the "silent depression", named so because on paper the American economy was technically growing. In 2025 the West followed the example set for them by Asia and officially ratified Americomm, an agreement that would create a currency union between the US, Canada, Quebec[3], and Mexico, as well as establish a free-trade-zone spanning the entire Western Hemisphere.
Despite the growing poverty in North America and the organized crime epidemic in South America, neon megacities would continue pop up in both respective continents built almost solely off of AU investment in some cases, by 2029-2030 the United States would finally fully relinquish it's claim to superpower status with the breakup of NATO into the European, Asian, and American military coalitions, each effectively being a confederation of private military companies.

[1] The situation in South Korea in the late 1970's was much more stable then in OTL and as a result Park Chung-hee was never assassinated.

[2] Perhaps due to circumstances stemming from the renewed Korean-War, the Japanese asset bubble never got as bad as it did in OTL, and as such the Japanese economic miracle continued all throughout the 90's and eventually eclipsed the US economy by the mid-2000's.

[3] After the failure of the 1980 referendum Quebec was eventually granted quasi-independence in 1991 after the federal government finally gave in to the contestant nagging of Quebec's premiers.
Tears in rain
The year is 2032, and the cybernetically and biologically argumented hordes walk amongst the rain-splattered, neon-lit megacities of hyperdeveloped Asia and rapidly decaying America, each citizen blissfully distracted from their soul-crushing dystopia by a myriad of flashing alerts and adverts cheerfully projected directly onto their eyes or into their brain.

The world is ruled by a vaguely-defined Asian-Western hegemony that appeared sometime towards the end of the Cold War. The monolithic authorities of said hegemony: Americomm, the Asiatic Union, and the various international military alliances act merely as fronts for the nebulous private entities that rule from Tokyo and New York. The only remaining opposition being the decrepit and despot Soviet Union.

Asia, and in particular Japan serves as the centre of this brave new world, with sprawling megapolis gradually swallowing the continent Asia has collectively become the most developed and technologically advanced society on the Earth, a vision of the future.

The Americas have become subject to a vast US economic empire, but despite the US's wealth and technology crushing poverty and crime plague the nation. Latin America has become the workshop of the world, taking in most of the US's industry, South America in TTL resembles OTL's China in the 2000's.

Europe never united to the extent of OTL but retains a high standard of living, at the expense of the entire continent becoming a US-economic vassal. The Middle East is slightly more stable then OTL although there has been two major wars waged against Iraq since the 80's, this has reconciled Saudi Arabia an for Iran's rivalry at the expense Saddam Hussain.

Africa remains fairly impoverished although the Congo Wars never managed to materialize ITTL, South Africa was thrown into violence however after a pro-apartheid coup in 1992 resulted in a civil war, as a result there aren't many Boers left.

India sits on the sidelines working with the AU, it's much more developed and influential then in OTL and less tension exists with Pakistan.
