PROJECT EARTH-6160

PROJECT EARTH-6160 is a reinvention of the Marvel Universe. Inspired by the Earth-27 project created by Roysovitch and illustrated by phil-cho, this project aims to take various aspects and elements of the Marvel universes and join them together to create a new approach that's simplified and cohesive.

The artwork is provided by the talented artist DuckLordEthan and the profile information and storylore is provided by Void-Wolf, told through the perspectives of two proxies.

PROJECT EARTH-6160 is a passion project primarily and thus serves no monetary gain. However, financial compensation is done to DuckLordEthan on the end of Void-Wolf through commissions and donations toward the artist can also be done through Pateron and other sites (Coming Soon!)

Most characters are based on characters belonging to Marvel, Disney, the content creators, etc and therfore all rights and legal ownership goes to them. We do not own nor claim to own any of these creations, and all fo them belong to Disney, Marvel, their subsidiaries and affiliates. This is merely a passion project created in celeberation to their creations and efforts. No money is being made here from this nor meant to. Donations and so on are done for financial compensation of the artist as well as any potential expenses that may come up in the future.

If you would like to feature PROJECT EARTH-6160s content via social media or by way of a fan-site, we only ask that you credit Marvel Comics alongside DuckLordEthan and Void-Wolf, aka Ethan Seth Abrea and Diego Vidrio.

All right then! The Basics!

EARTH-6160's story begins in 1995 and centers on the rise of the various superheroes and supervillains from the mid 1990s to the new millenium and beyond. There is no current "end-date" for the project, though 2020 is the current idea. However, other time periods will be visited, such as World War II, 2099 and even a few alternate timelines from Time Stone shannigans.

However, beyond that, no visitations from parallel Earths and so on. Some origins and stories will obviously be rewritten to be able to fit EARTH-6160.

And of course, some characters may have differing personality traits or mild differences due to taking on different elements from different Marvel properties. A few might even have their superpowers tweaked, though everyone is gonna try and be consistent as possible. A lot of things will be changing and alot of the sub-aspects will work to fit in here.

Personality

"With great power must come great responsability" are the words that have defined Peter since his tragedy as a high-schooler. With the death of his uncle and its associations with his own lack of action, Peter is committed to helping people out as much as he can with his own strengths and skills. This motivation to do the right thing, even in the face of adversity and disdain is admirable though not without flaws. His early adolescent years of relative friendlessness and social isolation meant that he would often have difficulty in interacting with people in a close stance and would lead to an independent streak early on. Despite this, he is not without charm as he possesses a sharp wit seen through the use of one-liners and observations. While in his civilian life he uses it to joke around his peers, in the heat of combat, he uses to masquerade his fears, using them as a buffer while also using it as psychological warfare against his enemies. His keen analysis from the interactions between him and those around him from their reactions to jokes in certian situations lets him get a grasp on how they are.

Despite this, Peter remains awkwardly endearing at heart. He is passionate about his "nerdy" hobbies and tends to act sheepish whenever he is given the chance to talk on them or granted attention to it, especially by pretty girls. He can sometimes be shy when meeting new people, a reason his humor and wit come into play. In many ways, he is seen as a younger brother among his older peers of the hero community. Often equal parts exaseperating and endearing yet maintaining a high level of respect toward his commitment to his moral obligations. However, he also stands out as his approach with humor to confront tragedy means he can be at odds with his more serious, stoic or melancholic peers. Addtionally, his social awkwardness means he often has trouble trusting people out of fear that they may get hurt by his life and some suspect he has developed an inferiority complex as his guilt causes him to focus more on his failures than his successes. Said complex likely resulted additionally to how he became hungry for attention during his brief stint as a wrestler and how he views said desire for attention to have led to his tragedy. Ultimately though, he is driven by his good heart and a desire to do good, to fully live up to the responsabilities and capabilities his powers granted him and what his loved ones believe that he can do.


Powers & Abilities

Spider-like Physiology- Spider-Man possesses the powers and capabilities of a spider, albeit proportionate to a human. Additionally, said capabilities may be augmented and enhanced beyond the proportions due to the genetic modifications and radiation treatments on the spiders. This has led to the various capabilities:

  • Superhuman Capabilities: Spider-Man’s physiology is superhuman, possessing superior strength, speed, agility, durability and stamina. He is able to lift and move up to 7 metric tons. Additionally, due to his adolescence, it’s believed that adulthood he would be able to move and handle up to 10 metric tons. He also possesses superior reflexes and can achieve perfect equilibrium in virtually any position and spot.

  • Wall-Crawling: Spider-Man is able to cling onto walls, ceilings and any other sort of position due to a strange alteration in his body’s make up. This “attraction” allows him to stick onto whatever surface he can handle while also maintaining his outfit on him, keeping villains from unmasking him. He also uses this to better handle lifting heavy objects, by sticking to the ground and beyond.

  • Regenerative Healing: Spider-Man heals faster and more effectively, including be able to heal off otherwise permanent damage within weeks or even days. This fact may in have been part of what restored his eyesight and maintained his body in optimal condition. He also possesses a powerful immune system.

  • Spider-Sense: Spider-Man possesses a precognitive sense he dubs his “spidey sense.” Instinctively warning him of dangers or threats, it’s connected to his muscle and brains as to instinctively dodge out of the way and training it allows it to be consciously applied to “abstract” dangers, such as menacing figures or hazardous situations. However, it is only out of a general sense, with Peter having to deduce the threat himself.

Genius-level Intellect: Among the smartest people of the planet, Peter already is in ranks of adults and as he learns more, would achieve greater heights in intellect. He has already displayed a strong aptitude in biochemistry, mechanics, physics, mathematics, chemistry and various other fields. Due to his superhuman capabilities, he can channel his intellect over into his heroics to find the solution needed. He is also a skilled inventor and engineer, being able to create his webshooters on a limited budget and with secondhand materials.


The transformation of Peter Benjamin Parker into who many in the distant future would consider the greatest hero, Spider-Man began at the end of his sophomore year in high school. After the fateful bite with one of the "super-spiders", Peter began experiencing fevers and muscle pains, confining him to bedrest. After recovery, he awoke to discover a very surprising transformation. Gaining considerable muscle mass, an additional two inches in height and no longer needing glasses, he was not the same Peter Parker that many knew him as. With this came a growth in confidence, especially after conducting tests on himself and observing that his strength, agility and other capabilities have been enhanced to superhuman levels. Additionally, he gained other capabilities, such as being able to climb up and cling onto walls. Deciding to maintain this a secret, he began practicing control over his newfound strength alongside with practicing to maintain appearances.

His search for purpose was answered one day when visiting his Uncle Ben at his workplace and noting that an amateur wrestling tournament was accepting applicants and with grand winner receiving a briefcase of cash as the grand prize. For the next couple weeks, Peter worked for the neighbors for the entrance fee while also buying materials to create a costume of sorts to hide his identity. However, unable to finish his mask, he was forced to improvise by taking the discarded paperbag of another wrestler's sacklunch and creating it as a makeshift mask. When the head of the tournament asked for his identity, he proclaimed himself as "The Bombastic Bagman".  Unsurprisingly, the Bombastic Bagman dominated the wrestling competition, going through the brackets to end up winning the entire tournament. Despite this, he would be surprised that he would end up beign short-changed as the Bombastic Bagman's near dominance in the fights meant a decease in bets against him being made. Despite Peter's protests (along with some surprising support froma  couple of the wrestlers), the fine print detailed that the proceedings would come from the bettings. Peter was forced to take the money that he did manage to earn and began storming out.

His life changed in a fateful decision where he neglected to hear the cries for help from said wrestling manager. From the little he overhead, he was being robbed by an ex-custodian of the place,the latter who accused the wrestling head of withholding pay from him and the other employees. Rather than getting involved, he decided to keep walking. After changing out of his outfit, he began walking home before noticing a police car stopping next to him, identifying him as Peter Parker. The police officer exited the car and informed him of the tragedy...


Benjamin Franklin Parker had been shot a few blocks over.


Riding in the police car, Peter Parker could not hold back his tears at witnessing the last moments of his uncle's life... the man who raised him. Grief turned to rage and as the scene attracted more attention, he quietly bowed out to let the police do their work, as he put it. However, he heard everything. Enough about the man who shot his uncle. That he was still close by and could be recognized by a mark on his face along with a certain accent in voice and wearing a stained jacket. Fueld by anger, Peter scoped all of the blocks, running on the rooftops. Having disguised himself once more, it did not take long for him to corner the man in an alley. Lifting him by his collar, he angrily interrogated the man over his murder. However, when the man spoke, the world froze. It was the ex-custodian. The one he could've stop and chose not to. He explained that after robbing his former boss and trying to run, he ran into Ben Parker accidentally, the latter having left work late. Initially helping the man up, Ben became surprised at the duffel bag and the sounds of polcie made him realize the man in front of him was a robber. Desperate to not lose the money, the man pulled out a gun, trying to intimidate Ben into leaving. However, rather than leave, Ben attempted to talk the man down and nearly succeeded, but the man's panic caused him to accidentally press the trigger and shoot Ben.

After his confession, the man's panic left him, resigned. Peter's rage meanwhile led him to break a hole in the wall next to the man. He could not do it. Not take revenge. It was not what Uncle Ben would do. It's not what he should do. His hatred and grief turned inward and a deep sense of shame grew in him. Breaking into further tears, he instead shoved tossed the man out of the alley when the cops showed up and he turned himself in. Peter meanwhile headed back home. The money now looked repulsive to him. Yet he recalled what Uncle Ben told him.

"With great power must come great responsability."

He acted irresponsably. He should've been better.

He will be better.

Using part of the money to pay for funeral costs, he used the remaining amounts to create a new suit. Taking inspiration from his uncle's favorite red jacket, he made into the red and blue. Additionally, he made himself something to restrain people. Earlier, he began working on artificial webbing, to act the same as spider silk. Utilizing his biochemistry knowledge and skill in mechanics, he made himself webshooters. He could use it to make emergancy ropes and web up villains.

By summer's end, criminals and gang members found themselves webbed up when the cops showed up. Kids were safely escorted home and crime began lowering down. Meanwhile, Peter Parker, looking to find a way to supply the lost income after the death of his Uncle Ben, took on the position of a freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle, who despite the cankterous nature of JJJ Jr,  provided a flexible schedule for him to photograph events. Peter proceeded to use the classic camera he fixed up and improved upon for his work. And so began the rumors... of the Spider-Man.


Trivia Notes

  • Peter Parker did not rely solely on his superhuman capabilities to win his matches. He possessed a surprising knowledge of the fundamentals of wrestling as well as the rules of wrestling. This was due to growing up watching wrestling with his Uncle Ben’s co-workers whenever he would spend time at his uncle’s workplace.

  • Peter also sewed the costume himself, having been taught how to by his Aunt May and helped develop his finesse in handling small parts. Unsurprisingly, it also led contributed to his being teased-at in Midtown High.

  • The webshooters started out as a passion project from his newfound interest in spiders after his powers. They were made from various leftover mechanical parts and junkyard scraps. He took inspiration from fishing rods as a starting point.

  • He has kept the “Bombastic Bagman” outfit in a duffel bag in the closet. His inability to toss it out is attributed to maintaining as a reminder on who he was compared to who he needs to be.

  • Peter was aware of the rules of the tournament coming from bets made. His dominance of his opponents was the result of his self-indulgence of being stronger than everyone else there. While he did not harm anyone, he took great pleasure in winning his fights handily, even taking the time to make quips and utilizing mike skills in the ring. This is why he ultimately lost the money and was forced to take what he did get.

  • The “Kick-Me” sign was added as a hazing joke by the wrestling manager. It contributed both in Peter’s aggression at the man and part of why some of the other wrestlers took his side.

  • Peter signed the form under the name of “Bombastic Bagman” to avoid revealing he was a minor. It was permissible due to the nature of the competition.

  • The radiation used to create the superspiders at AIM are in fact a variant form of “Vita-Rays”, the radiation associated in creating Captain America. These “Vita-Ray” variants contributed to Peter being granted the spider’s powers along with an enhanced healing factor and his threat-based precognition or “spider sense” (which appears to be a superenhanced version of the “flight or fight” instinct.)

Peter Benjamin Parker was on August 02, 1980, the son of Richard Laurence Parker and Mary Theresa Parker (formerly Fitzpatrick) in Queens, New York. His middle name came from his uncle, Benjamin Parker, who was Richard’s older brother by a decade. With Benjamin having been a strong and stable support for Richard during their time growing up, even during Ben’s enlistment, it was no surprise that Richard trusted Ben and May with Peter. Namely this was due to the nature of Richard and Mary’s job as agents of the CIA government agents. As such, they had to spend plenty of time abroad away from their son performing clandestine missions for the government, namely counter-terrorist operations. They had announced their intention to retire from active duty to become more involved in raising Peter, who was now 4 of the time. Unfortunately, their last mission took on an entirely different turn as it was their most difficult, sacrificing their lives to stop a terrorist attack from the infamous Red Skull successor, Albrecht Koenig, terrorist Albert Malik

With their untimely demise, Benjamin Franklin Parker and Maybelle Parker (formerly Riley) became the primary caretakers of Peter Parker. Unfortunately, given the clandestine nature of Richard and Mary’s missions, much of the money was unavailable to assist in Peter’s upbringing, instead being reserved in a trust fund. Growing up in the “blue collar” working class (with Benjamin Parker being a mechanic), Peter Parker would be subjected to the teasing of his peers starting in middle school, coinciding with his focus in his studies alongside his “nerdy” interests such as computers, fantasy and comic books. Despite this, Peter Parker lived a fairly happy life, possessing a great deal of love and admiration for his Uncle Ben and Aunt May, both of whom were strong supportive moral figures in his life. Entering Midtown High School marked a transitional period for Peter as he began developing feelings of resentment toward his peers who looked down on for his working class background and interests in academia, especially toward Eugene “Flash” Thompson, star quarterback of Midtown High School’s football team. He proclaimed that he would surpass his peers and “show them all” what he could do in regards to his intellectual pursuits. Despite his general position of being a “wallflower”, he did possess some friendly acquaintances in class, such as high school senior Jessica Campbell, who would mysteriously vanish after her graduation.

However, everything would change for Peter at the end of his sophomore year of high school. During an end-of-year high school trip to a laboratory of Advanced Idea Mechanics (then considered a legitimate scientific organization). Interested in bio-chemistry, he and a few other classmates (such as Cindy Moon and Carl King) were drawn to the so-called “super spiders”, genetically-modified and radiation-treated spiders that possessed amazing properties. One such in particular escaped unnoticed and would bite Peter Parker by the hand, changing his life forever…


Trivia Notes

  • His favorite foods are his Aunt May’s wheatcakes (pancakes made with a mix of buckwheat and whole wheat flour along with molasses), New York style pizza and New York style hotdogs.

  • Despite his primary interest being biochemistry, Peter is also skilled in mechanics because of his early years observing his Uncle Ben fixing appliances along with his work as a mechanic. His first successful fix job was the family camera.

  • His role models growing up (aside from his Uncle Ben) were primarily Captain America (Steve Rogers) and Tony Stark.

  • His hobbies include working on appliances, reading comic books and science fiction novels, playing on arcade machines and more recently, computers (his first one being a ThinkPad.) Despite this, he is not a fan of Star Wars. Has a preference to some of the older science fiction novels.

  • Despite lacking much athletic ability and interest, Peter Parker is an avid Mets fan and relates heavily to them, describing them as “a bunch of lovable losers who hit the occasional home run by accident.”

  • Peter identifies and was raised as a secular Jew; both of his parents came from Jewish backgrounds alongside being raised in Queens. He celebrates the traditional Jewish holidays in a historical context, but not over other holidays (as in he will celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah) while not adhering to the religious rules (such as kosher.)

  • An additional reason for his relative isolation is due to being the youngest of his peers in class.

Good morning everyone! I hope you are well!

I am currently developing a major project alongside www.deviantart.com/ducklordeth… that is inspired by another popular work. It's going to take time and effort, but we're gonna be in it for a ride!

This is a passion project that he is onboard with though nonetheless, he will be getting financially compensated and we should soonish have something up to send the money for him because arting is time-consuming, expensive and deserves to be well-conpensated.

Stay tuned.
Tannenbaum
Behold! My first non-EUIV map in a while! This one is based on what if Nazi Germany decided to go through Operation Tannenbaum, their plan to invade Switzerland just after the fall of France. Needless to say, it could go alot screwier than anyone expected!

------------------------------------------------------------

Historical Background

Nazi Germany expected a fight when they decided to put the invasion of Russia on hold and get rid of the "pimple of Europe." It was still a minor nation though... unfortunately for the Nazis, they have sealed their fate the moment they invaded.

The Swiss fought tooth and nail and made the supposed victory pyrhhic at best to say the least, with several resistance groups active during the war. Additionally, the utter gall of attacking the Swiss, the modest neutral nation, had massive rammifications at the world stage. Whatever minor goodwill the Nazis began plummeting to rock bottom, even inside of Nazi Germany itself. The Americans and Free Europe doubled their efforts to make them pay, but the first retaliation came from an unexpected source... Sweden.

Sweden, the neutral supplier of steel, could not bear seeing such an attack and realizing there was nothing in neutrality, abandoned it and proceeded to defy Nazi Germany, cutting it off from its precious steel supplies. Not even finished in Switzerland, this forced the Nazis to devote more forces to taming up north, especially when thousands of Finns came to the defense of Sweden. So harsh it was the Desert Fox was forced to migrate north... leaving an underbelly ripe for attack by the Allies, which they exploited. As 1942 ended, Italy began collasping from internal strife and frustration against the fascists and then from Turkish reinforcements when the latter joined the war after it was revealed an Italian sub was behind the Refah Tragedy. Southern Europe began a domino effect with Greece being freed, Bulgaria tearing up their agreement with the Germans and Romania doing a coup. All while the Soviets prepared for their conflict against the Germans. Despite the time to prepare, they got pushed back, the Germans having focused down on the USSR with fears of an attack from them any way. In 1942, Barbarossa finally came into play, a year later than expected. While the USSR was expecting them, the purges of Stalin had been a deep wound and while they suffered a large pushback, they got their act together and began pushing back. While the USSR occupied the Germans, the Allied forces would go through Italy to begin liberating the French while the invasion of Hungary happened. Nazi Germany began falling to pieces as the Allies began attacking them from the West and the South and could only relying on keeping the Soviets away, desperately hoping for a good enough win to keep the Soviets away and regroup. No such luck happened for them though. 1943 would pass and the war would continue on, with the Germans near the breaking point.

Eventually, more losses led to the complete outbreak of riots in Germany, around when the Allies were taking Poland.  The Nazis were completely defeated and Europe free. However, the Eastern Front remained a factor. The Americans, now focused on taking out Japan and they did not invite the USSR, respecting the non-aggression agrement though also out of fear. However, the United States were granted permission to sue Russian land as a starting point. Months later, Russia would ivnade and take Manchuria while the Americans went to claim Korea. Eventually, the threat of a dual invasion along with the new atom bomb forced Japan to surrender.

The War was over.

However, the world had changed. Stalin found himself cut off from the agreements and he could not influence any of the nations. He cut his losses and focused on China. The USSR backed East Turkestan and would make it into a pupper state alongside with Manchuria, trying to convince Mao and the others to use that. Instead, the Chinese Civil War raged on painfully and the losses would lead to the Communists leaving for Manchuria with Mao dead. However, Manchuria would become a Manchu state instead of a Chinese one and a deal made with the sruvivng Nationalists and other allies agreed to it as forced population transfers occurred and Manchuria would become "Manchu-fied" over time. The Republic of China endured, but it would take plenty of reforms and US support to get on the feet, which included land reforms.

1955 saw the world begin turning and changing. While the Marshall Plan would see Poland grow and be reinforced against the USSR, Germany would ultimately be divided, becoming client states of the Allies in order to ensure they would grow culturally distinct enough to not want to join. All to try and prevent the rise of another Reich. However, while Americans would be thought of as very positively throughout Europe, not everything was rosy. With the USSR retreating into itself, rivalries of influence popped up again as the great powers of Europe feared losing influence to the United States, especially with the British's loss of their crown jewel of their Empire. To that end, Britain and France worked together to begin organizing Europe into a stronger united force. For economic and politcial purposes to avoid war, but also to retain their relevance in the world and counter the otherwise global hegemony of the United States.

China meanwhile would begin drifting from the United States when they finally began stabilizing and would tolerate the communist movements over in Southeast Asia so long as they kneeled not to the Russian bear or American eagle, but to the Chinese dragon. The Untied Stated in response, went to focus on problems at home and began building up their own bases of influence and commerce. The launch of Sputnik was the sign of the Space Race, since while the USSR may be out of the running for global influence, their advancements in science showed they were still formidable and surrounding by potential threats pushed them to develop nuclear weapons and later telecommunication devices, all to further unite the nation and to protect them.

However, new ideologies kept rising up from beyond the corpse of fascism and the stange amphorism the Russians call communism. Baathism became infamous prominent when the Arabian Crisis occurred. Baathists exploited various uprisings and weaknesses to try and unite the Middle East to form a fourth (or fifth) power bloc. However, the end resut had a zealot cult kill off the House of Saud before all of Arabia broke into anarchy as a result, forcing Europe and America to go in and keep matters calm in their respect sphere of influences. By the end of it, Arabia remained divided though most now under more liberal goverments, barring the Baathists who claimed Ridayh along with the leftovers of the area. The emergancy sent shockwaves to the economy because of the oil and alongside growing environmental concerns, began forcing nations to begin pursueing more environmentally friendly and responsible policies. Though with the end of the millenium came the Digital Age the new realm of cyberspace opened the world up and connected it beyond bounadries or economic blocs.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The World Today

Despite the initial tense period, the new millenium brings new opportunites and new hopes along with new problems to deal with. While the lack of a global conflict has lessened the speed of the development of certain new technologies, rivalries between economic blocs have nonetheless spurred on the creation of telecommunications, fuel and transportation. Perosonal computer and laptops are usually found in most homes while the arcades gave way to video game consoles utilizing the second generation of 3D polygon graphics. VHS and the CD have given way to the new MP3 musical format. Weapons technology has lagged since the 1980s however with the focus now developed into cyberspace along with being focused onto maintanance. Additionally, the labor expenses associated with going to make all sorts of new technology has forced the industry to adapt new tactics to try and save costs, which include beneficial attempts such as returning older products or designing them to be modular though other attempts are not so well-intentioned, such as attempting to move aboard manufacturing locations to cut costs, a move that has earned increasing ire from certain companies.

While American culture has dominated the globe since the 50s, the steady return of Europe's prominence saw a development in modern British and French culture alongside a cultural renaissance in Eastern Europe, especially Poland, who has been enjoying its new prestigious position within Europe and the world. Additionally, with the death of Kai-Shek in the late 70s, China began undergoing gradual liberalization and democratization, being able better to implement policies without having to worry about the top brass of the Kuomintang. As such, the new early 2000s saw a flourishing of Chinese culture influencing across the globe. Chinese fastfood establishments began appearing even in the United States and Europe, mirroring how McDonalds opened up in China decades prior.

The United Nations meanwhile is an organization with more muscle and bite than initially expected, namely because of the events of World War II. Switzerland, while still officially neutral and without allies (Lichtenstein the exception), the nation has become more pro-active in global affairs, at least in influence. The UN Special Forces is a respected team of soldiers across the world, including the USSR, devoted to maintaining peace in the world though the ruling of when to use them is often a great debate. Often times whenever conflicts begin descending into anarchy at the dentriment of the civilians (while the Arabian Crisis came close to reaching the point, the combined might of Iran, Turkey and Ethiopia alongside the coalition of Israel, Palestine and Jordan was enough to handle it.) Despite this, the world remains divided albeit into economic and cultural blocs, even if said blocs are beginning to mix together with the rise of global telecommunications.


The American Bloc

The Americans came off the high of heroism and back into political reality after the war. Soldiers remained abroad trying to stabilize China for the Nationalists and the entire conflict left a sour taste since it removed the garnish on the idea of "fighting communism." The Red Panic remains a sore spot in politics as McCarthy is still infamously known for his "witch hunts" and the backlash against it led to greater acceptance for more leftist policies. The fact that the so-called "domino effect" that was feared would happen did not come to light. China did not fall to communism, merely only losing land that was spun off into communist states, but have already been culturally distinct off that it was written off. Vietnam and Laos went communist, but they mellowed under China's influence. As such, the greater tolerance for leftist and "socialist" policies fed the flames of change in the civil rights movement during the 1960s and 1970s. Voting rights and protections from hate crimes became more important and the reactionary backlash against it just led to more change. As of now, the United States remains the top power in the world, even if China is catching up considerably and Europe's growing closeness could definitely match it. Without wars abroad to distract it (barring the humanitarian intervention in Cambodia against the Khmer Rouge, albeit also done to secure a hold in SEAsia after Thailand politely refused to join to maintain neutrality and assisting Iran in the Arab Crisis), the nervous energy was turned inwardly. Beyond the Civil Rights movement, issues such as healthcare became more prevalant. President Mo Udall's "Mo' Care Fo All" campaign led to the rise of the US's universal healthcare system, Americare. Rights for minorities and women evovled into that for the LGBTQ community and the Supreme Court ruling for gay marriage and civil rights was celeberated around the world. Currently, the United States has been enjoying a period of prosperity and contentment though the greater prominence of corporations through the internet, cybersecurity issues and the interconnectivty between various sides has caused anti-monopolists targeting Big Tech next while unions gradually turn toward green energy since the 80s Oil Shock. Though the populace has also been enjoying the decriminalization and legalization of substances such as marijuana and now other drugs such as LSD and psilocybin mushrooms are next to be considered.

Outside of the USA, the rest of the Americas have continued to grow and change. Initially fearful of US intervention against their leftist governments, a collective sigh of relief was had when the USA instead turned inwardly and just demanded special relations to the USA compared to the rest of the world (which, given the other options was a struggling Europe or a fragile nationalist China, was an easy answer.) Mexico benefitted the most from this. While the Mexican economic miracle was defined by an accelerated rate of growth, the widening gap between the rich and the poor just made it a depressing contrast. It was only after Cardenas became President after an attempted electoral scandal by the PRI forced the US to get the UN invovled did things look up. With more gusto than their gringo friends up north, corporate and land reforms were established. Beyond that, a Trade Union for the various Latin American nations (the LatAM Trade Union), further benefitted several paries and promote cooperation. While still dealing with some trouble and having to confront past mistreatments of the indigenous peoples along with modernizing economies, the LatAm Trade Union has been doing well. Currently, the largest prominent issues remain on the drug cartels; while weakening since the 80s and especially with the US's legalization, they remain a problem for them. Additionally, the growing scandals of the Catholic Church have rocked the cultural sphere of Latin America, with some either doubling down while others turn to new faiths or even old ones.

Japan meanwhile has had it good for quite a while now and with little economic problems or crisises, it just made cultural problems all the more significant. Japanese traditions mixed with corporate culture have led to the growing anxieties, worries and frustrations of the common folk over in Japan. Japan, initially known for its cultural boom within the US and LatAm sphere in the 80s and 90s and still now, has been having to wrestle with a declining workforce compared to the age of the elderly. Additionally youth rebellion has been acting up and the yakuza remain a complicated problem, one that becomes harder to keep down thanks to the Internet. Despite this, Japan remains proud. They have been keeping up in rivalry against Korea though mixed-race relationships is no longer as scorned as it once was (especially as both the US and China found it ridiculous enough for them to become invovled.)

India meanwhile was an unexpected guest within the Americans' side. Initially expected to go their own route or try and strike it out, American support for them against China after China snubbed the US led to the nations growing closer. A relationship that was formally cemented thanks to the liberation of Tibet. India for the most part has been dealing with excited times and eras. Cultural developments in the US such as the pill, women's liberation and so on hit the more traditional India harder and enabled by Americans, India began undergoing "de-Britification" in exploring the past. While this has done positives, such in acceptance of LGTBQ folk, it did bring up religious tensions up though the reminder that it was a Hindi nationalist that killed Gandhi was enough to dampen the effects of such folk. Right now dealing with a different population adjustment, trying not to have a similar situation like Japan though not wanting to become crowded like China. To that end, many older Indian folks retire either to Tibet or the Americas and causing odd shifts in population. Though currently, the big contention is on climate change and on cleaning up the rivers.


The European Bloc

Europe gradually rebuilt itself, thanks to the Marshall Plan of the United States. While this led to plenty of positive feelings and American businesses within, as the threat of the USSR began dying off, the British and French began fighting back against American hegemony and sought to retain the importance of Europe in the world. Creating a Trade League, they sought to promote economic equality while also working to maintain peace and prosperity within the continent so another war would not happen. Initially, the British did not want to get involved in France's plan, namely preferring to try and maintain the fragile grips of their Empire. But after the loss of India and the forced de-colonization by the UN, the British instead formed a Commonwealth with their former dominions and decided to join in France's team, using their commonwealth as a way to spread modern European influence and prestige. The British had a stiff upper-lip as life kept bringing down the government, such as the loss of Iranian oil, the Arab Crisis and so on. Yet they've adapted and moved forward, taking opportunities wherever they could. They still retained relevance in culture across the medium and music. However, Britain has been getting into some hot water as they have been relying on their former dominions of the Commonwealth to provide cheaper goods for them into Europe, raising the ire of labor activists within the nation and out. Britain has been attempting to deal with this, since they've just recently recovered from the debacle with South Africa.

France meanwhile has managed to recover from the Algerian problems and has been focusing on trying to maintain their role as the dominant influence in Western Europe. Despite the mild unpleasantries they had with the Amerians regarding their refusal to go into Vietnam, the French retain close ties with the Americans since the liberation of France from them. Additionally, as a result of the rise in popularity of superhero comics, France has decided to exploit that with their rich past of comcis and working alongside Belgian to do so, hoping to create a larger cinematic experience with Europe. Currently, they are attempting to emulate the British with doing a form of Francophonie, but success has been somewhat slow due to how France left the state of things in their former colonies, though the leftist adminsitrations were still fondly remembered

The big winner was Poland. Long the punching bag of Europe, they have taken upon their new role with glee and pride. Having gotten back the land the USSR took from them along with some German land allowed them to grow and develop, especially under the Marshall Plan. Many Germans who refused to stay within the new German states (either because of the temporary restrictions or wanting new opportunites) often went to Poland. Poland served as a bulwark for potential problems in the border with the USSR and often have to wrestle with on what to do with people who try and leave (though a problem that has been less frequent over the years), especially with their long-time associate, Lithuania. Perhaps one large change was how Poland would grow a large film industry. Starting when Fritz Lang moved to Poland to try and escape the Hollywood contraints, Poland become a hotspot for Russian, German and other Central and Eastern European artists and music makers to come in and help the nation kickstart out their own movement. German expressionism found a spiritual successor in Poland as the film industry in Poland was as experimental and new as the atmosphere in Poland was at the time. While initially sticking to their foreign roots, many began taking inspiration from Polish folklore and other Eastern European fables and myths. This made Poland into a prominent media spot over in Europe. However, the Jewish situation was one that has haunted them and they've made many efforts to atone for it. They've also been working with some deals with Romania and Bulgaria.

Europe as a whole continued to change and grow. Yugoslavia fell and smaller nations took their place. European has been on edge with Serbia-Montenegro, currently under the administration of a one-party president-for-life system and has been rumored to have been causing trouble for their neighbors. This has led to Serbs leaving the land and trying to settle into the surroundings, with mixed success (including converting to Muslim if they move to Bosnia.) The current issues remain more on the minor squabbles that could have economic rammifications (such as the Irish Troubles or Turkey's admittance being delayed becasue of the whole Kurdish situation.)


The Chinese Bloc

China, while appreciative of the Americans' help, still maintained their distance from and refused further involvement from them, wanting them to join amongst the Great Powers. While this did lead to the Amercians backing up their rival India when the early instability led to the opportunity to liberate Tibet, China did indeed overcome their odds and become a superpower. Granted, most of it was touch and go until the late 70s, when most of the heads of the Nationalists began dying off and the seeds of democracy sowed by more moderate members and associates of the Kuomintang began bearing fruit. The Chinese Premier no longer ruled for life and a form of democratic parliament and judicial system was established though the executive branch of office held more power and responsabilities than even the American President does. The following decades would see the steady rise of Chinese influence on Asia in the world, especially as they began gathering the disenfranchised and secondary nations into their hegemony. China however is also at a crossroads as more right-leaning politicians try and use the potential of the internet for greater surveilance and assist in maintaining one of the most populated states; at the same time, a second wave of activism and progressivsm has been sweeping the nation as decades of stability and cultural rediscovery has led to institutions being challenged and or abandoned.  New modes of thinking based on old ideas have been proposed, such as neo-Mohism.

Meanwhile, one of their first allies, Pakistan, has been attempting to deal with India's own rise and their own maintanance of stability. Many in the nation had begun to resent India's rise to influence and prestige, but little could be done as the nation was trying to resolve their own problems from within. Relief came through China as many young Pakistani went to travel abroad over in China and came back to bring in new ideas and powerful aspects to try and help their nation keep up. However, this has been clashing with the traditional Muslim ideals from within the reactionaries, but the rise of protests through Sikhs and other religious minorities keeps the Islamic Republic from doing anything. As such, many are wondering what the fate of the nation would be, especially with Khalisthan nationalists and the growing popularity of Sikhism.

The Free State of South Africa on the other hand has been doing well since the overthrow of the old state. Apartheid was not going away and the Europeans' hesitance of getting invovled meant there was a ripe opportunity for other nations to get in. While the Americans considered the potential, it was the Chinese who jumped right in and did so, assisting the various African peoples indirectly and once conflict boiled over in an attempt of autocracy, the Chinese swooped in and assisting in the overthrow of the old order. The Free State of South Africa is now a loyal Chinese ally and dominated by the majority. Many Afrikanners ended up fleeing toward the British commonwealth nations nearby though others stayed in to make reforms and get along. Despite this new bastio of loyalty and appreciation, South Africa has remained focused more on organizing themselves before doing things such as instituting Chinese as a language though many young South Africans have begun learning the language to gain further opportunities in China.

Lastly, the Brazilian Third Republic joined up with China, refusing to enter the LatAm Trade Union for varying reasons, namely not being offered the leadership role. Eager to flex their mucles and show the world what it can do, it instead formed a kinship with China and during the days of the Estado Novo of Portugal, assisted in the liberation of the former Portugese colonies and thus entering Brazil's sphere of influence. Brazil had been showing growing relations and the economy for a while now though perhaps the issue of the Amazon Rainforest has been a large issue as opportunists wishing to use the vast resources are cut down by international policy and foreign support for the indigenous tribes living there. Does not stop illegal timber action though even that has been in danger because of China's own pressure as they have to deal with their own pollution problems that not even most eco-unfriendly Brazilians could downplay or ignore. Other cultural movements included the decline of the Catholic church in the area as well as odd neo-nativist groups promoting greater indigenous cultural influence within the nation to fill the void left by Catholicism. Lastly, Brazil has been on edge given the growing influence of the Peronist Alliance down south.

The Other Powers

Beyond the big three blocs though, there a few other notable influences. The USSR remains mostly closed off from the rest of the world though they have opened somewhat. Their economy has improved with the slashing of the military budget alongside having moved away from a petrol-based economy. Culturally, it remains somewhat stagnant as ever though it does still comment on the growing trends and phenomena with their own source of media and even the video game industry has their role over in the USSR. Beyond the communism though, a thriving black market does exist with foreign products and the government for the most part turns a blind eye though they're also keen to stomp out anything that could get them in diplomatic trouble. Their satellites states remain quite red politically though they maintain culturual distinctions. Even ardent opponents of the USSR give them credit for saving the Manchu language and forming a Manchu identity as well as bringing back the Oirat/Kalmyk people to their homeland. Despite said culture being influenced by communism, the somewhat hands-off approach by Moscow does give them plenty of leniance with some joking they're more faithful representations of communism than their backer state. Manchuria is the large case of this. Serving as an underdog against China, it was where the defeated Chinese communists ended up along with several deported Manchu peoples and families. Many of the Manchu nationalists or so on would end up in power and go about restoring a Manchu identity through reinforcement of the spoken and written languages while stamping out any "Chinese" influences. The effort overall did succeed in recreating the Manchu culture and reinforced loyalty to Russia. They are not without foreign influence however as the Eastern Orthodox Church maintains a surprising strong minority within Manchuria. They are at odds with China and to a lesser extent Korea, with black market dealings and port conflicts monthly occurences.

And of course there are the group of miscreants known as the Non-Aligned Pact. Formally an alliance between various states to support one another and not get involved in the others' affairs, many note they've consisted of the nations that have a difficult time getting along with their neighbors. The Peronist Alliance, headed by Argentina, is one such group. Continuing from the work left by President Peron, it would continue to maintain itself and influence South America, especially with the evolution of Neo-Peronism, which keeps the core concepts of the corporatist "right-wing socialism" angles, but has become opening to the LGTBQ+ community as well as greater inclusivity for the indigenous peoples in the state. Despite this and other odd eccentricities, they are the most sociable. Yugoslavia, the former founder of the Pact, no longer exists to maintain the Pact, but their successor in Serbia-Montenegro has. Torn between the loyalists of Tito, more liberal elements and of course the nationalists, Serbia-Montenegro remains a volatile nation that remains largely excluded from European affairs. However, their continued antagonism continues in more subtle ways such as information control and seems to serve as a way for the other nations to get along better, specially Croatia and Bosnia,who have patched much of their issues on the land redistribution to deal with Serbia. Lastly is Baathist Arabia. The Baatists were eager to try and take Arabia after the fall of the House of Saud and the Qatif conflict became full-on behavior, but despite unifying, their various neigbors beat them to the punch so they focused instead on taking the city and as much land as they could. Everything was nationalized and the stockpiled wealth and connections was enough for them to continue existing and during their best to not wholly PO their neighbors. Some have compared them to the former Kuomintang of China though their complicated to Islam makes that even more difficult to decide. Currently, they have been accused of funding Baathist or like-minded parties across the greater Middle East, their hopes of a new economic bloc with themselves dominating it remains unbroken.

History

The end of the Timurids brought many changes. But not as so drastic as the rebirth of the Persian Empire. In the last waning days, a freak accident led to a chain of events resulting in the liberation of Yazd. The last bastion of Zoroastrianism, it was under an ambitious prince who sought to rebuild the ancient empire of old under the fires of Zoroastrianism. The last war of the Timurids against Ajam and their allies saw Yazd move aggressively to claim land. Through the use of channeling the past, the call to convert back to Zoroastrianism was a slow endeavor yet powered by a desperate populace and an ingenious understanding of psychology and sociology. With the fall of the Timurids, Central Asia would collapse into various territories and regions, all of whom Yazd would be happy to gobble up. However, while exploiting key battles, they would focus more on taking Ajam and their neighbors. After claiming enough land, the prince crowned himself Shah and thus Persia... Iran... was reborn.

The Ottomans' expansions provided perfect opportunity for Iran to expand west and take much of their former land. To ensure control, Iran even expanded to Arabia, soon controlling all of the Gulf Coast. Many Muslims were sent there as part to "return home" though the perference of Shias over Sunnis within led to some comfort in regards to that. Iran grew furhter and further, gaining more vassals such as Ardabil and Gilan and the conversions to Zoroastrianism became quicker and more widespread. The ultimate testament was how Oman and Hadhramut became Iranian vassals and during the expansion wars, Iran gained a foothold into Africa. Many converted to Zoroastrianism on the promise of freedom from slavery and in wars of convenience, fought alongside Ethiopia to expand the new "Somalistan" and the freed slaves and poor flocked to the fire temples. To many, Ahura Mazda was leading them to victory and a brighter tomorrow. The foreigners would be forced out and the fires of Zoroaster will relight a new tomorrow for a reborn Persian Empire. However, back east, it was still trouble some though Sistan would become part of Iran as well as Afghanistan and other parts of the region, all due to Transoxiana's own ambitions. To combat the, the Iranians made an alliance with Oirat to assist them in their expansion out west and deal with the Kazaks, with Central Asia being divided between the two.

Perhaps the ultimate testament due to the divine fiery rebirth was the inevitable war between the Ottomans and the Iranians. Exploiting their overstretched armies and them suffering from a war with the Christian powers, Iran attacked focused on claiming Syria and a foothold in the Middle East, finally connecting them with the Mediterranean once more, especially thanks to Sakartvelo, a new ally of theirs in assisting reclaiming land from the Ottomans. However, their announcement to the world came when they exploited the Mamluks' war with Ethiopia and took back the Christian holyland and granted it to the remaining crusaders in Cyprus. However, much had changed. The Catholics had been dealing with a new revelation known as Protestantism while Italy was in siege from Aragon. Years of forced cooperation between the Eastern Orthodoxy and Catholics alongside the Jews and others led to new developments. The Christian world cheered for Iran as the fabled Jerusalem was now a Christian state once more. Yet, that cheer faded to shock as the Kingdom of Jerusalem did not submit to Rome, but proclaimed themselves their own masters... a new Protestant Church was formed in the heart of Christianity and under the protection of the Iranians. A divine comedy of sorts. Nonetheless, many Christians celebrated and the Great Powers welcomed Iran to the seat of the table, including Russia, who forged ties with Iran during the fights against Iran.

Eventually, most of Central Asia became part of Iran and through the unity, a greater Iran was born and the descendant of that amibitious prince now proclaimed to be the Padishah... the Shahanshah... the King of Kings.

Through their Arab client states and Somali holdings, Iran controlled much of the trade heading from East to West, their Mediterranean coasts being the hub to many luxury goods from the land, to mercenaries from Central Asia and Iran fighting in Europe's wars and those of North Africa and later combating piracy. Iran's main power came from their trade power and their own production of goods, something that remained prominent to the modern day. However, after the reforging of Iran, they remained relatively content, only assisting Russia in finishing off the Ottoman Empire for their new ally Bulgaria. Beyond that were the troubles of Portugese pirates and those of the Catholics.

Industrialization came gradually. While coal was located within Central Asia with various other goods, Iran treated carefully to ensure the advancements would also allow them to care for their people. Rich deposits of natural materials assisted in that alongside programs to send the best students to study abroad and bring knowledge back. It was a new golden age of Iran, not having been since the days of Khosrau. However, here, the fire shall never die and the almighty fires shall keep burning.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Modern Life: The somewhat harsh lands are filled with a vibrant and multicultural peoples, a modernized take on the golden age of Iran and a people who understood the meaning of strife and determination. Oriental fascination with Iran led to the rise of esoteric ways of thinking and many outsiders sometimes find their way here, especially in regards to the LGTBQ+ community. Technology is plenty thanks to the various unverisities and schools of thought around the land.

Religion: Being a connecting point, Iran has several ties to various faiths, though some being more prominent than others.

-- Zoroastrianism: Once a declining faith, the preachings of Zoroaster endured and remain prominent, especially in the heartland. Having reclaimed its position of dominant faith in Greater Iran and spread over to Africa, it remains a prominent faith of interest, especially in its applications in the modern world regarding the cosmology and other factors, such as explicit ban on slavery. Zoroastrian communites are also noticed in Europe, either from new converts or the descendants of the mercenary armies that settled in centuries ago.

-- Islam: Considering how Islam superseded the old ways, the relationship was rocky for the early part. Many Muslims were pushed further out to the outskirts of the Empire, with many being "encouraged" to head to Arabia. However, the allies from Gilan and Ardabil led to preference to the Shias over the Sunnis, with some converting to Shia or moving to Arabia. Eventually, this led to Khaleejistan become predominantly Shia, with the Sunnis having converted or headed further into Arabia. Muslims are now minorites within Greater Iran itself, but make up most of the people in the client states. Beyond the Shia Khaleeji, the Omani Ibadi are prominent and are steadfast allies. Many of the Sunnis within the Empire now are either Hadhramut Sunnis or large minorities within Central Asia or Somalistan.

-- Christianity: Despite the historical conflicts, Christianity remains vibrant within the Empire, largely due to the creation of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. The Kingdom of Jerusalem is home to any and all Christians there though the main church is the Church of Jerusalem, a Protestant-classified Church that follows much of the Protestant ideals though takes from other inspirations such as the Unitarians and of couse, Zoroastrianism. Other prominent Christians include the Antiochian Orthodox Christians and more famously, the Syriac Orthodox Christians. Eastern Orthodoxy are also seen through the ties with Sakartvelo and Russia. However, various other minor Christian groups are also here, such as Assyrians and Chalcedon Catholics.

-- Other: Unsurprisingly, many minor faiths still exist within the Empire. Yazaidis within the Kurds, the prominent Jewish community within the Empire itself along with the Jerusalem Kingdom, Druzism, and many other faiths have contributed to the culture and prestige of Iran. Others include Tengri worshippers in Central Asia as a result of the influence of the Oirats as well as Mandaeists.

Military: The armies of Iran were born from the early militias and were modernized from the ideals of Khosrau. With the various geographic areas, many of the soldiers practices and endured themselves to fight. Additionally, with the prestige granted from the armies for hire from Iran granting technological and military logistical aspects to the land from Europe, it maintained their power to the day, even if the army is not wholly needed alongside for defensive purposes.

Meanwhile, the fleets were seasoned from the days of warring for domination of the Persian Gulf and the Somali Sea, fighting for control of the Gulf of Aden, and then combating piracy in the Mediterranean from the Barbary Coasts and the covetous Catholic powers.  This has translated also to the airfleet, as the massive scale of the empire required a strong airforce to protect the nation should the need arise to. While reigning in peace time, Iran never forgot how its rebirth was through fire.

Government: Ruled by the Shah, Iran is a consitutional monarchy, having entrusted ministers and governors to assist in ruling their large empire and hiring from all walks of life and culture. While the Padishah title is a mainly ceremonious title, the royal family still hold prominent influence and still have expectations required of them in an informal manner. Beyond that, a parliament of sorts assists in ruling along with various judges. The client states are mainly autonomous, but still bow to the Padishah. Somalistan meanwhile is ruled by their own Shah while the Kingdom of Jersualem still is considered a protectorate.

Culture/Economy: The economy of the Empire was initially born on trade and indeed thrives on it, especially once it expanded and gained a powerful foothold in the Mediterreanean. Many products from the Bharatian subcontinent and China flowed through the Silk Road dominated by Iran and into the Mediterranean, creating a powerful monopoly that would only be challenged by the colonial powers of Europe when they expanded into the Pacific Oceans' various nations and made them colonies along with the Cape of Hope. In spite of this though, Iran persisted, especially as they would stand against the Catholic powers of France, Castile-Portugal and Aragon as well as the British Empire. Furthermore, their control over Jerusalem has led to the creation of the Suez Canal, locking down the route of Eastern Africa for them, even with the Cape of Hope taken into consideration. For Central and Eastern Europe, many of the products of Iran were first and foremost. Additionally, the rich raw materials from Central Asia and the oil of Iran and the Arab client states led to Ira continuing to become powerfully prevalent for world economy. Even now in the Digital Age, online trading comapnies and e-markets can be found in Iran and shipping to Europe and beyond.

Regarding the culture, thr various faiths led to a melting pot of traditions. Religions are respected across the board and the differing cultures have led to a great amount of tolerance and maintanance to ensure the happiness of everyone in the kingdom. A veneration of the past, especially such as Khosrau remains vitally important and many of the ideals, such as the emphasis of education became very prominent. Many unversities dot the Empire, both in Greater Iran and its subjects. Additionally, the introduction of chess and backgammon through Iran led to an odd veneration of games into Iran, with boardgames and the like being taken seriously, especially in fantasy styled settings. Additionally, the harsh climate meant that maintanance of the world is taken seriously and Iran's power, influence and prestige means their words have powerful impact.
