What do the Democratic-Socialists Want?
Right now, if you asked the average voter what the DSA or Justice Democrats, or Working Families party stand for, you'll probably get some variation of Socialism. The right will say Communism, the left will say Democratic Socialism, and the middle wont' know who these people are because there are maybe 200,000 from all three groups combined. If you ask them what policies they support, 9/10 they'll just say what they THINK a Democratic-Socialist would want. But I'd like to know... what do these people actually want to do? Where is there manifesto? What specific policies do they want to address and how? If the DSA took 30 seats in the House and formed a coalition government with the Democrats, what would they want to push for?
This is really starting to bother me because the most sophisticated answers I get from Democratic-Socialists are either, "Tax the Rich," "Universal Healthcare," or "Abolish capitalism." That isn't a manifesto, that's petulant whining about issues with no clear plan

Flag: Holy City State of Mecca
Ever since Rome made Vatican City its own little city-state, the idea of other holy cities becoming autonomous if not sovereign entities in their own right. However, such a measure did not gain traction up until the 1960s, when the Ottoman Empire began reformatting itself into the Şafakstanian Empire, the idea of the holy cities came up. Jerusalem had just a few years ago become an independent nation, with the city-state having defenses providing by various nations across the world, as a way to promote unity. However, the Islamic world had growing divisions between as a result of the modern world order being divided amongst the three super-alliances.

Furthermore, the various factors and influences the former Ottomans did to counteract Arab nationalism through supporting nationalist movements in Arab-dominant areas (such as the various Berbers in Morocco and the Copts in Egypt), creating a domino effect in which the religion of Islam began fracturing more over cultural lines and how Islam should be properly followed. To that end, various meetings and conventions were held in Medina and Mecca to discuss the potential futures. Eventually, it was decided that Mecca and Medina would become independent city-states, much like Vatican City and later Jerusalem would, in order to cement a lack of regional bias regarding religion.

This tied in with the Islamic Reformation, in which the faith began being reforming itself for the modern world as more and more followed the Ottomans in catching up with the Western Christian powers. One of which was on a new symbol for Islam. While the star and crescent had been an unofficial symbol, its relevance has waned both due to its association to the Ottoman Empire (with other countries wanting to grow beyond them) as well as Turkic symbolism (despite the star and crescent having been used in Byzantium before Islam even rose.) Ideas and debates flew around before a new symbol was chosen. Supposedly, the child of a diplomat had snuck their idea in: five vertical rectangles with two horizontal ones, titled The Pillars. According to said child, they pointed out how if there are five pillars of Islam, why not use those?

The simplicity and elegance of the idea had won enough people for the The Five Pillars to become the official symbol of Islam, in the same the Cross was for Christianity and the Star of David for Judaism. This in turn inspired the flags for Medina and Mecca.

Colored Islamic Green, the flag is black. Some have said the flag was chosen in honor of the Abbasid Calpihate while others said it was due to the Kabba.

Flag: Holy City State of Jerusalem
Here is a big and interesting one! Big thanks to my friend for making the branches for me!

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

The Holy City State of Jerusalem was the result of the changing time and signified the changes that occurred in the latter hald of the 20th century. No longer was it just the era of great powers, but also an era of super-alliances. Grand organizations formed by various nations that solidified against one another and would become a powerful cultural phenomenon that would play a part in shaping how nations and cultures are viewed. Even religion was not safe from this form of mentality, as the various Christians and Muslims would begin distingusihing one another mroe based on culture, especially if they were part of the same international organization.

This of course led to problems when it came to the various holy cities in the Ottoman Empire. This, along with the growing changes in national identity and the growing secular movement, had the Ottoman Emperor meet up with various figures to discuss it. After including a talk with the Pope, Jerusalem would be released as a city-state, being neutral of politics and dependent on various religious groups and ties. This came as a surprise with Mecca and Medina become their own independent city states as more and mroe divisions in Islam occurred due to the interactions of differing cultures and choosing nation and ally over religion.

As such, the city-states were formed to maintain peace while also symbolizing the growing secularism of the Empire (even if they were somewhat in charge of helping to provide defense for the area.)

The flag of Jerusalem has two crossed palm branches, (since palm branches are important symbols in all three religions) while the colors of the flag each represent the three (Jewish blue, Islamic green and Christian gold.)

Flag: Republic of China
The flag for one of my alternate history projects. Here, we have the flag for the Republic of China.

EDIT: Smoothed it out a bit


China had long been suffering issues in trying to maintain control over its areas, especially in parts like Xinjiang regarding its Uyghur subjects. The rough decades that came after dissolving the Qing dynasty resulted in warlords crossing over and causing problems, all while Mongolia would free itself and try to reclaim its lost lands and China dealing with various mishaps.

Then came the Pacific War. Formerly the Second Sino-Japanese War, the young Republic fought against th imperialistic island as well as their warlrod collaberators. Mongolia provided limited assistance, as the nation itself was torn between those with loyal sentiments to China or those who wished to ally with Japan to better reclaim lost lands. However, Mongolia formerly sided with China when Russia sided with them. China endured several problems and the loss of several leaders, but help would come when the sleeping giant known as the US came in and even later Mexico.

The Pacific War would end, but not without toll. Xinjiang was in disarray, currently under the control of a warlord/politician who had allied with Japan and used said alliance to ally themselves with the British, who came in to parlay on behalf of the defeated Japanese (partially out of sentiment and partially to beat Germany to the punch). The deals and the following Kyoto Trials saw soem success, but China still needed hope.

That hope came through  a long-hiding third force appeared to take the rule of China. They were the Chinese Democratic League, a group of various leftist political parties and organizations who managed to secure American and Russian assistance in uniting China and defeating the warlords.

In exchange, Mongolia and Tibet would be recognized as independent and China losing all claims on both of them, though Mongolia would also surrender any claims to "Inner Mongolia," a decision made due to the differing lifestyles and influences of the regions. Furthermore, due to deals with the British/Japanese, China would recognize the new Khanate of Jegunyar. However, Muslimc Chinese loyalists would follow into China and China would assist Russia in bringing the Oirat Kalmyks into Jegunyar.

Despite the hardships, China would overcome them and grow, becoming a mighty great power and having a great deal of influence over in the Pacific. They have reconciled with Russia and have bonded closely with the Americas.

The flag is a combination of two flags, the Fujian Peoples' Government/Chinese Peasants' and Workers' Democratic Party flag (the party elected into power in China's parliament during its first election) and the Kuomintang's flag.  It represents the endless blue sky, the fortunate boundless red earth and the golden sun with the 12 rayes representing progress and the hours of the day, along with a golden new dawn for the powerful land.

Flag: Afghan Kingdom
And here we go!

Afghanistan's modernization was in jeopardy. Despite the best intentions and efforts of the king, the conservative tribes and other groups made it difficult bringing Afghanistan into the 20th century. However, the Ottomans, seeing an opportunity to expand their horizon, stepped in and assisted in keeping the tribes down and with the strong funds, Afghanistan became a modern nation-state, one marked with their first victory in a conquest over Baluchistan in order to obtain a shoreline. This provided the Mittelmachte access into northern parts of West Asia.

The Pashtuns, Baluchis and other various groups did squabble, but the support from the multi-ethnic Ottomans and the endeavors of the King assisted in this. Other factors assisted in this, such as the rise of cannabis in various medicinal and other properties, especially with the decline of global opium sales. Indeed, it serves as the primary soruce of cannabis throughout the Mittelmachte economic sphere.

The flag is a simplified version of the older one, with the colors remaining the same and the Rub el Hizb symbol in the flag.
