Well. I mention WWII because is part of Nowan history, as I know from Brad site. (probably it wasn't called WWII, but the Great Pacific War)

Probably some American people could have develope expansionism. Not Hangkerim but probably Lemuraki or another Andean culture. Then when The Great Pacific War was trigged, South East Asia and Oceania, were divided between Japan, Lemuraki and England, and that war didn't affected continental Europe... posibilities are many, then I think I will focus in what happend to Hangkerim and which people (European, American, Asian or Oceanic) had contact with H. What I already know: Semtalika (America, Yucatan) invaded H. more than 2000 years ago. Lemuraki (America, Mississippi) fought Englishmen togetter with H., Spaniards (Europe) and then Englishmen (Europe) occupied H. territory. -- Carlos Eugenio Thompson Pinzon
