New idea:  WWII in Sth America.  Basically, extend the war in an active way to the Sth American continent.

Battle of the River Plate somehow drags one or more South American countries into the war?

Bolivia and Germany were close in the 30's and Peru has a large Japanese population and ties to Japan, so there are your Axis powers.

Argentina was also super-close to Germany and Italy in that period with a large immigrant population of those nationalities living there. If you wanted to make it a more competitive conflict, you could throw them in. Maybe have Japanese subs operating from Peru, German ones operating from Argentina, etc. You could have the Graf Spee sheltering in Buenos Aires (maybe even instigating the whole thing), Germans occupying French Guiana or Suriname after the fall of Metropolitan France, launching an attack on the Panama Canal, and more.

Also, less plausible, but if you're looking for even more candidates for the Axis bloc, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, El Salvador, Chile, Brazil, and Colombia all have their own reasons for potentially aligning with the Axis.

Better yet, expand it to All Things Scandinavian.

This would cover a lot and maybe broaden participation.
