The fall of Southeast Asia was the systematic invasion and annexation of the nations in southeast Asia by Axis Coalition backed China. It began with the invasion and annexation of Taiwan, and ended with the annexation of Indonesia. This began on July 1, 2020 and lasted 3 months, meaning that it coincided with Central American Crisis. Axis Coalition forces fought against Alliance forces in addition to the militaries of each individual country. The reason for these attacks was motivated only by an ongoing immigration crisis on the southern Chinese border due to an economic collapse in southeastern Asia, leaving many unable to provide for themselves. China began closing its borders after it was filled to capacity, but, much like in the United States, immigrants illegally snuck across the border. This wore China's resources thin, so even there the immigrants weren't much better off. This led to a series of uprisings and protests that threatened the stability of China, so Xi Jinping decided to absorb these nations and use all of their resources.
