When the British Empire collapsed, two competing Indian nationalist movements emerged: the Indian National Congress led by Jawaharlal Nehru, and Azad Hind Fauj led by Subhas Chandra Bose. Both claimed themselves to be the true leader of the Indian people, and both accused the other of working with imperialist powers -- Britain for the INC, and Japan for Azad Hind. Eventually, the conflict between the two exploded into outright civil war, beginning the Second War of Independence that pitted Indians against Indians.

After a period of active warfare, Nehru managed to broker a ceasefire with Bose. India was divided, but at least it was at peace. INC controlled western India from Balochistan to Orissa, while Azad Hind controlled the Bengal regions to the east. Under Nehru's social democratic leadership, the Republic of India became a multi-party democracy, but it is by no means a functional one. Even within the Republic of India, the country is deeply fractured and unstable. As political radicalism rises and political divisions worsen, India's future is one clouded in uncertainty.

Supported by the Japanese, Azad Hind fought alongside Japanese troops against the British in the Asian theater. When the British pulled out of India however, Azad Hind found itself facing the Indian National Congress, who share their goals of Indian liberation but are fundamentally incompatible with them. Thus began the Second War of Independence. Though Azad Hind eventually signed a ceasefire with the INC, they never let go of their pan-Indian dreams, and still claims all of India. Azad Hind now faces a complex situation, as they juggle between handling Japanese interests, local Bengali nationalism, and their own dreams of pan-Indian liberation.

When the British Empire collapsed, the INC banded together under Jawaharlal Nehru to form the Republic of India. Nehru brought peace between India and Japan, established a multi-party democracy, and made compromises between the castes. Nehru did all he could to create a united, independent India, but he couldn't solve every problem - India is still divided and unstable. Japan's puppet state in Bengal claims all of India, Indian democracy is becoming increasingly fractured, and discontent with the government is driving more people to radical groups, deepening the divides of the nation.
