Peoples Republic of China
The Chinese civil war lasted up until 1955 when the Nationalists were finally pushed back the Taiwan. However, in the last five years of the war the Communists suffered heavy losses with the Nationalists resorting to slash and burn tactics a huge famine spreads over much of China for most of 1955 and 1956 killing millions and causing even more to desert the major cities in search of food.
In 1955 at the outbreak of the Korean War, the Peoples Liberation Army and Navy is sent to help the North Koreans. (the events of the war are the same, just 5 years later, the status quo is maintained.)
From 1958 to 1969 Chinese history is the same and the Sino Soviet split is at its peak.
In 1973 during the Korean Crisis, Chinese and North Korean troops capture the Liancourt Rocks from South Korea. This outrages the Japanese government, who dispatch the newly formed Imperial Forces to recapture them. The small North Korean and Chinese force holds onto the rocks for several days during this time they fire missiles at Japan. But before the Communist forces are beaten, China and North Korea order them home after a stabilisation of relations with North Korea.
In response to the missile attacks, Japan funds an internal non governmental espionage froup, The Black Dragon Society to unleash a ten year campaign of economic sabotage against the Chinese economy. The Japanese sign a defensive pact with Taiwan days before the US recognises the PRC as the rightful successor to China. The Chinese attempt revenge attacks against Japan but the efficient Japanese counter espionage agents and mass anti Communist feelings due to the missile attacks makes them a failure.
By 1980 Sino Soviet relations reach an all time low. A second border conflict ensues with the Chinese occupying Zhenbao Island. The Soviet Union in response bombs the base on the island, but does not escalate the situation further.
By 1990 the Invisible War between Japan and China is at its height, the Sino Soviet split threatens to spill over into war and China's economy has suffered badly.
Internal policies in the PRC remain much the same throughout the period. The cultural revolution and support of free markets still happens. However, economic growth is stunted.
