    Government Type: Constitutional monarchy
    Leading Party: None

    Head of Government/Second-highest Executive Official: Prime Minister Shah Mahmud Khan
    -At the beginning of September, King Mohammed Zahir Shah declares a "New Era for Afghanistan" and begins to sell excess royal property to civilians. A lot of these properties are quickly bought up by foreign businessmen and rich Afghanis. A lot of protests by Afghani communists and republicans occur because of this.
    -As part of this "New Era" program, large boarding schools are built throughout rural Afghanistan with obligations for children of both genders to attend. Subsidies are sent out to families that are having trouble getting supplies for school, but the families are reminded that no matter what their children must attend. However, a lot of Islamic clerics and tribal leaders go against this strongly believing that they should be receiving an Islamic education and a boarding school in the town of Chaghcharan is burned to the ground.
    -Also as part of the "New Era", western ideals and sciences are promoted in village institutes and city schools. It goes over poorly in rural areas (see the above line) but in Kabul it is regarded very well, especially by liberals and socialists.
    -After the PRC "incorporates" Tibet, the Afghan government denounces them, fearing for potential Chinese expansion.
    -A small division of Afghan soldiers are sent to Korea to assist the UN. They are currently placed in support of the UN garrison at Kaesong.
    -Prime Minister Zahir Shah meets with President Eisenhower in order to discuss economic support. The US government agrees to send them military and economic support in order to provide a bulwark against Soviet and Chinese influence.
    -A large program begins with the assistance of the US to build infrastructure throughout the country, however it encounters setbacks with embezzlement of funding and attacks by tribes. A railway is built in the city of Kandahar connecting to the Pakistani city of Quetta. Trade increases between the two countries with wool and grain being imported and exported.

    Dominion of Ceylon (ලංකා ඩොමීනියන් රාජ්යය, இலங்கை மேலாட்சி) - King of the Jews
    Government Type: Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy
    Leading Party: United National Party (Conservatism)
    Head of State: King George VI
    Head of Government: Prime Minister Don Stephen Senanayake
    -The Dominion of Ceylon declares at the beginning of September a new policy known as "Two Peoples, One Nation" (Sinhalese: දෙකක් ජනතා, එක ජාතියක් Tamil: இரண்டு மக்கள், ஒரு தேசம்). Under this new policy, the Sinhalese and long ostracized and marginalized Tamil are treated as equal.
    -Schools are built and opened en masse throughout Ceylon, teaching Sinhalese and Tamil with most children knowing either or as a second language by the end of the year.
    -A veterans fund is created for veterans of the Ceylonese volunteers in World War II which gives veterans a chance at giving back to their community by giving them subsidies to start business and go to university. This allows the majority of veterans to enter the University of Colombo.
    -The Royal Ceylon Navy is created to defend the island from foreign threats, coast guarding and monitoring of the nation's territorial waters.
    -A petition to American and British investors is signed to help jumpstart the new nation's economy. Several mining companies start prospecting for limestone and graphite and several sources are found. Construction on quarries and mines begin and are expected to be finished early next year.
    -Political reforms are introduced which allows Tamils to vote and a campaign begins to encourage all citizens to vote in the upcoming parliamentary elections in 1952.

    -The Royal Ceylonese Mint is created to help circulate money throughout the country and banks begin subsidize farmers and aspiring entrepreneurs. This leads to a lot of new farms and business opening up throughout the country.
    -Subsidies are given by banks to build tourist attractions to encourage future Spring Breakers. A lot of resorts go up in the city of Trincomalee which is voted "Number 1 Tourist Destination in Asia" by many travel magazines.
    -A program encouraged by the government begins for households throughout Ceylon to develop home gardens to help feed households. It is an immense success in poorer communities as now most families are capable of getting a nutritious meal, no matter how small it is. Community gardens and farmers' markets spring up through various towns and villages which leads to improved relations between families and villages as it ensures poorer people have meals and jobs.
    -Agricultural and life science colleges spring up throughout rural Ceylon with the creation of home gardens which helps teach farmers and civilians how to properly grow and maintain crops. The program makes great strides in helping bridge the gap between richer city dwellers and poorer villagers.
    -The end of the year passes by with remarkable stability in the Dominion and Prime Minister Senanayake is given the British Order of Merit by King George IV for his work in stabilizing Ceylon and repairing race relations.

    Republic of Korea (대한민국, 大韓民國) - Amfleet
    Government Type: Unitary presidential republic
    Leading Party: Liberal Party (Conservatism, Authoritarianism)
    Head of State: President Syngman Rhee
    Head of Government/Second-highest Executive Official: Vice President Yi Si-yeong
    Capital: De jure Seoul, de facto Pusan
    -UN and South Korean forces repel a large Chinese and North Korean attack on Kaesong and a massive push towards Pyongyang, known as Operation Ripper, begins.
    -The North Korean city of Haeju is taken over by British, Canadian and South Korean forces, North Korean holdouts are driven north to the city of Sariwon to regroup. Photographs flood in of emaciated Northerners happily receiving aid from UN forces.
    -Operation Thunderbolt begins with a diversionary bombardment on the city of Nampo with UN ships attacking the harbor, while Chinese and North Korean forces are focused on the bombardment, US and British Marines land in the city of Wonsan and quickly take it over.
    -North Korean forces surrender at Wonsan *en masse* after Operation Thunderbolt took them by surprise.
    -UN forces bunker down at Kaesong and Wonsan to prepare for a march towards Pyongyang in the summer.
    -Chinese supply lines begin to break down from constant US bombardment.
    -The South Korean army creates a new branch, the Korean Airmobile Forces which are used to help quickly deliver supplies and troops to UN forces.
    -The Korean Army buys M4 Sherman tanks from the US and begins to upgun them, giving them a 76.2 mm gun and better armor. These local variants are named the Haneul-ui Mangchi (하늘의 망치) or "Heavenly Hammer". These tanks pierce through Chinese and North Korean T-34s like crap through a goose.
    -In the city of Sokcho, which is currently directly occupied by the Chinese army, a large scale civil uprising begins as Korean civilians begin mounting guerilla attacks against Chinese forces. Weapons are airdropped in by US forces weekly and Chinese forces begin to get a severe headache as they can't properly send relief to their beleaguered garrison.
    -Rebuilding begins on the city of Kaesong with both local and foreign volunteers and PoWs. Construction takes its time as supplies are mostly heading towards the military, but they expect to be finished rebuilding the industrial sector by late 1951 or early 1952.
    -The Republic of Korea sends diplomats out to all non-communist nations in Asia. Consulates open up in the de facto capital of Pusan and President Rhee is seen shaking hands with Malay sultans and the Prime Minister of Australia.
    -The massacre at Sokcho is widely reported on throughout South Korean news agencies and propaganda is made comparing it to the atrocities committed across the 35 years of Imperial Japanese occupation. This leaves a bitter taste in the mouth of the Japanese government who believes the comparison is unfair.
    -Syngman Rhee and General MacArthur meet in Seoul and Rhee praises him for his work in liberating Korea. General MacArthur is awarded the Korean Taegeuk Cordon of the Order of Military Merit. At the end of the meeting however, President Rhee warns General MacArthur against using nuclear weapons, citing the death of 2,000 Koreans at Hiroshima. MacArthur reluctantly agrees to hold off on the nuclear option for now.

    -A resolution is sent to the UN from Pakistan to protect historical religious structures from destruction. The resolution passes with a near unanimous vote (with the communist countries of the world voting against it).
    -Trade opens up again with India and begins with Ceylon. Grain and jute flow through the border and relations between India and Pakistan are greatly improved.
    -The Royal Pakistani Police are reformed with stricter punishments levied against abusers and probes against police corruption are frequent.
    -Infrastructure projects are launched to build roads and other systems throughout the poorer parts of the country, this helps immensely with getting electricity and clean running water to villages in drought prone regions.
    -A bill is signed granting protection to all religious and ethnic minorities in the country. This doesn't go down well however as radical Islamists believing that Islam is the way to go.

    Kingdom of Afghanistan (پادشاهي افغانستان) - Trebgarta
    Government Type: Constitutional monarchy
    Leading Party: None
    Head of State: King Mohammed Zahir Shah
    Head of Government/Second-highest Executive Official: Prime Minister Shah Mahmud Khan
    Capital: Kabul
    -Afghanistan buys the exclave of Gwadar from Oman for $260,000. This gives Afghanistan a port and leads to them losing their status as a landlocked country. This angers some Balochi people who wish to unite with Pakistan.
    -A project to build a railroad from Kandahar to Gwadar is started with Pakistani assistance. The railroad is predicted to be finished by late 1952.
    -Foreign investors are encouraged to come to Afghanistan with tax cuts and subsidies being used to encourage them. A lot of foreign, primarily American and Belgian, companies enter Afghanistan to prospect for minerals and to build factories. However a Belgian prospector, Arnaud de Koster, is killed by an unknown assailant while prospecting near the village of Kamdesh.
    -After de Koster's death, the Afghani government encourages confessions from rural tribes by offering support to families of confessor and amnesty to people that give valuable information in relation to ringleaders.

    -The dialect of Persian used in Afghanistan, Dari, is declared the official language of the Kingdom of Afghanistan with other languages such as Pashto and Tajik becoming recognized languages. As a part of this decree, Dari is to be taught alongside other languages from the beginning of school. This angers a lot of rural Pashtuns who believe that doing this is allowing the Shi'ite Iranian imperialism to continue, but they are hushed up pretty quickly.
    -Drills occur in the military to test the readiness of the military against a hypothetical Soviet invasion. The drill shows that the Afghan army would be woefully unprepared for a real invasion and that there are severe logistical issues that need to be worked on.
    -A hearts and minds campaign begins as Afghan army detachments head out to rural villages to help prevent guerilla attacks against foreign companies and construction workers.
    -Land is redistributed equally between peasants and opium crops are given to companies in Kabul. This redistribution program is watched closely by the military to make sure no serious instability happens because of it.

    Head of Government: Prime Minister Don Stephen Senanayake

    -The Army enters training with the British Army and SAS to help become an elite fighting force. The Army ends these training drills with becoming one of the most highly trained fighting forces in South Asia.
    -Ads appear in western colleges and universities asking for graduates to come to teach in the University of Colombo and to assist the government in projects. A lot of graduates, primarily from the Commonwealth, head to Ceylon to help teach.
    -Yoga is encouraged amongst Ceylonese citizens to help physical and mental fitness. Throughout Ceylon citizens are seen rolling out mats and exercising.
    -Tax breaks are given to tea farmers to encourage them to expand their farms. Farmers that expand more get bigger tax breaks.
    -The radio and automotive industry is encouraged throughout the country in the major cities.
    -Ports and drydocks are expanded and constructed throughout coastal cities. This greatly increases the amounts of imports and exports to the country.
    -Ratmalana Airport in Colombo is upgraded to accommodate more airstrips and planes. With summer arriving and a flood of tourists about to come, the airport believes it is made a great decision.
    -Roads are constructed throughout the country to connect cities and towns and the basic foundations for a highway system are set up.
    -Railroads are also worked on alongside this basic highway to help those that don't have the money for cars.
    -Inspired by Buddhist and Hindu philosophy, the government issues some laws mandating that logging companies must plant two trees for every tree they cut down or face fines. Gal Oya National Park is also created to serve as a catchment area for a reservoir and to protect elephant herds.

    Head of State: King Rama IX
    Head of Government: Field Marshal Plaek Phibunsongkhram
    Capital: Bangkok
    -Thailand enters negotiations with Laos to demarcate the border along the Mekong. The talks go very well and borders are finally established by the two countries.

The US, Britain and France join as observers for now.
    -Thai police officers are positioned on the borders with Burma and Laos to work in tandem with their police forces to curb the flow of opium into the country. This helps crack down on the drug trade coming from the Golden Triangle.
    -Thailand becomes one of the first East Asian nations to recognize the socialist government of Indonesia.
    -The Thai government enters a trade deal with the Japanese government to send grain and coal to the still repairing country. This is seen by some however as the government's way of still sucking up to the Japanese.
    -Australia and Thailand enter a free-trade agreement known as the TAFTA, as part of this agreement Australia helps begin construction on a canal through the Kra Isthmus. Construction begins in the middle of July and it is expected to take about 5-10 years to complete.
