Asia is the world's largest and most populous continent. It covers 8.6% of the Earth's total surface area (or 29.4% of its land area) and it contains more than 60% of the world's current human population.

Asia in In the Presence of Mine EnemiesEdit

Asia was divided up between the German Reich and the Empire of Japan after they emerged victorious from World War II. Germany annexed the Indian sub-continent, the western portion of the former Soviet Union and the Middle East. Japan controlled China, Indochina, the eastern portion of the former Soviet Union, and the surrounding territories.

Asia in "Report of the Special Committee on the Quality of Life"Edit

During the reign of King Fernando and Queen Isabel, mariner Cristóbal Colón offered to attempt to sail from Spain to the Eastern Lands via the Atlantic Ocean. Whether this was feasible remained unknown, as the Special Committee on the Quality of Life, led by Jaime Nosénada, determined that to attempt the voyage would not be in the country's best interests.[1]

Asia in Southern VictoryEdit

Much of Asia had been colonised by Europe throughout the 19th century. Japan began asserting itself in the 20th century, taking Spain's possessions in the Hispano-Japanese War. It then aligned itself with Britain and the Entente during the Great War, taking the small territories held by Germany. After the war, Japan took possession of Indochina from France and the Dutch East Indies from the Netherlands. It also entered into a conflict with China, which did not quite reach full-scale war.

Britain maintained its own substantial empire in Asia, including India. However, in 1943, Japan attacked certain of its former ally's Asian holdings.

Asia in WorldwarEdit

Arguably, World War II began in Asia when Japan launched a full-scale invasion of China in 1937. By 1942, Japan had carved a substantial empire out for itself in Asia, when the Race invaded Earth. Japan was driven off the mainland of Asia, although it was able to maintain toe-holds in the surrounding islands following in the Peace of Cairo in 1944.
