After The ApocalypseEdit
Both the party-failed Great Leap Forward and the horrific Great Chinese Famine had led China in a calamity, but due to this the NATO nations chose to ignore most of China and only bombed a few major places, rather than going totally homicidal as in the U.S.S.R. Hong Kong was also slightly hit by the U.S.S.R. as a tactical move, which China followed up with a long planned (and wanted) invasion 2 days after WW3, which would see 100,000 flee to neighboring states on makeshift rafts to both Taiwan and South East Asia, as another 6,000 died at the hands of Chines troops in the month long battle to suppress the pro-British/Thai resistance forces. Macau surrendered to China 3 days after WW3. As this happened, thousands of desperate Russians fled in to Manchuria and settled in make-shift camps on the banks of the Mudanjiang River. Some locals and Russians started to set up there own independent states in the Greater Khingan Range and Lesser Khingan Range by 1966. Food shortages, a cholera outbreak and heavy urban riots hit many of the ruined cities and near by refugee camps in the wake of the NATO nuclear attack. The weather became extreme between 1962 and 1965. Many died in the 1964-65 food riots in Taiyuan and Tongliao.
Things became rather chaotic after Mao Xzedong's death became public 5 days after WW3. This had happened as several reformist, ethnic minority, corrupt and/or power hungry party official ran amok in the remoter provinces! With in a week Guangxi province, Yunnan's capital of Kunming, Hongta District (Chinese: 红塔区; Pinyin: Hóngtǎ Qū) is and the county of Yunnyang openly rebelled as state authority began to crumble. Luckly Zhāotōng (Chinese: 昭通) is a prefecture-level city located in the northeast corner of Yunnan province remained loyal and had driven the local rebels out by the May of 1967. With in a month The Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Nei Mongol Autonomous Region and Tibet Autonomous Regionhad all declaired UDI and had turned on hated local communist party officals on mass. Ordos, Hohhot, Wuhai, Chifeng and Tongliao chose to stay loyal, but Hulunbuir prefecture was a 6 year long general melee between Russian refugees, Mongolians (and local Mongol militias), the Communist Party of China (the CPC) and local Han nationalist militias.
Party loyalists, remaining non-mutinous troops and the more enlightened members of the regional C.P.C. leadership retreated to the recently built, but rather small, strategic bunkers placed the mountains, beside Lake Jingpo, the town of Ürümqi, the city of Chongqing and in a few tactically important places among the Mudanjiang River, the upper reaches of Yellow River, the Fen River 汾河 and the Wei River 渭河.
Most mountain bunkers were concentrated in thes locations-
- Longmen Mountains
- Hengduan Mountains
- Xuefeng Mountains
- Lesser Khingan
- Zhongtiao Mountains
- Tian Shan
- Jiuling Mountains
- Min Mountain Range
The nuclear winter and summer caused much hardship with heavy snows falls, lasting for several months, as far south as Shanghai at one point. A usually large and moist Pacific typhoon the hit Taiwan and the provinces of Shanghai, Zhejiang and Fujian. The heavly fortified Lazikou Pass in the Min Mountain Range would serve as a make-shift headquarters until the interim Gansu divisional C.P.C. leader, Wang Deng Chen, moved it to the city of Chengdu was secured from local insurgents in the December of 1965. The rebels were loyal to the regrade local prefecture leadership.
The county-level city of Wǔzhǐshān (Chinese: 五指山) in the south-central part of Hainan Island had also go rogue at about the same time in the June of 1964, but held out successfully against the forces of the C.P.C. and the pro-C.P.C. Hǎikǒu-Wénchāng Republic was formed out of the loyal Hǎikǒu Shì 海口市 county level city and the loyal Wénchāng Shì 文昌市 county. Most of the south of the Island had formed a loose anti-Chinese confederacy, which would dump China in the September of 1964 and joined up with the Philippines in the March of 1976.
Riots had occurred some towns and villages of the Ngawa Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture in the March of 1964 and the May of 1965.
Overall 200,105,606 Chinese, 6,500 Hong Kongers, 45 Macauiese and 145,000 Taiwanese died in the 3 years directly after World War 3!
The '1st Time of Chaos'Edit
Riots had occurred some towns and villages of the Ngawa Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture in the March of 1964 and the May of 1965. Wang Deng Chen was elected the interim national C.P.C. leader 12th June at a special C.P.C. summit in Chongqing. A political unclaimed bomb composed of 600 pounds of amatol, 225 pounds of dynamite, and 475 pounds of tar exploded in a neighboring part of Chongqing, killing 60 people and a further 200. Chairman Wang Deng Chen was also slightly injered in the attack.
Chinese government forces would be driven out of the towns of Ürümqi, Kunming and Lhasa in the December of 1965. Hainan Island would become an independent on January 1st 1965. Golmud City in Haixi Mongol and Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture and Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture on January the 8th. A day later the rest of the Prefecture was over run by local malcontents and anti-Communists, who created the pro-Western Haixi Mongol and Tibetan Democratic Republic. As the troubled province's chaos spread local monks set up a benevolent monastic sate in the sparsely populated Golog Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture on June the 4th. They soon became respected for there neutrality, humanity and the fact they genuinely welcomed every one (even the CPC) as friends, which helped secure the states' long turn survival.
Yunnan province, Ngawa Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture and Chengdu City all declared there independence from the People's Republic of China in the January of 1966, but it would be another 4 years before it would be secured. A few days later the C.P.C. forces were ejected from Chengdu by local rebels, but the C.P.C. forces retook Chengdu from the renegade prefecture leaders after a hard battle in the May of 1966. The rebel leaders were then summarily executed.
The government held part of Qinghai (Chinese: 崇左;) was fully stabilised in the Summer of 1967 and Guangzhou by the autumn of 1967. Luckly Zhāotōng (Chinese: 昭通) is a prefecture-level city located in the northeast corner of Yunnan province remained loyal and had driven the local rebels out by the May of 1967. Szechuan was fully under government control by the summer of 1968.
The Chóngzuǒ (Zhuang: Cungzcoj) prefecture-level city in China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region saw a rebellion by the Zhuang population against Chinese rule in mid 1967, which would spread to most of Yunnan by late 1968.
As the years passed the Chinese government forces began established the country and brought most of it back under there control. Many of the excesses of the old regime were also moderated by the Autumn of 1969.
After the pandemonium caused by the events following destruction of Mao, the party elite, several ports and many of the nations industrial zones; the country began to settle down and the rebellious party officials were mostly crushed and liquidated by rather dubious local appointed pro-C.P.C "people loyalty courts"! Such acts of dis-honer by party members would never be let get so out-of-had ever again! Prisoners and prisoners of war would be regularly worked to death as slave labour until it was banned in 1998.
The heavy irradiated and nationalistic Manchu Republic declared it's UDI on July 7th 1971 after a major famine and cholera outbreak hit Xinbin, Benxi and near by Donggang. It consisted of Autonomous Manchu Counties of Benxi, Huánrén, Xinbin, Qingyuan and Kuandian.
Henan province was the last to be passivated in the March of 1971, but the suppression of Tibetan rebels in Sichuan would continue in to the summer of 1972. Most of the country would be reunified by late 1972.
The repaired Benxihu Colliery reopened on August 1st, 1973.

Sino-Japanese relations began to thaw after the 1982-1984 coal for cars treaty was singed. The now fuel-less Japan would give abandoned and unwanted cars to technologically backward China in exstange for coal imports.

Japan and Taiwan had laid idle due to lack of resources ad China lacked technology and education, so they pooled resources and advanced as a single trade block called The Chegdu Pact of 1992, with Khabarovsk joining in 1993. The treaty became largely obsolete when those nations helped in creation of the economic and monitory union called the Khabarovsk Pact in 1997.
