[X] Push the proposal to the House of Peers
1. You successfully convinced members of the Shakai Taishuto to side with you, they might be nobles, but they are eventually socialists through and through, thankfully enough. (You rolled an 18)
2. The Rikken Minseito, unfortunately, doesn't seem to be willing to support your reforms in the House of Peers, it was a very intense negotiation, with some haggling and arguing. But their position held firm, a clear break from the Minseito in the lower house. Shigeru Yoshida might have a word with some of these party members later on. (You rolled a 13)
3. It seems that the Monarch Points are irrelevant, since the members of the Royal Family has all pledged support for your plans in the House of Peers. (You rolled a 17)
4. And the same case is true for Imperial Academy members, the 2 other who opposed the initial reforms, after seeing the Royal Family supporting it. Eventually caved in. (You rolled a 13)
In the end, you have 257 seats in total. Barely enough to pass it through the House of Peers, do you wish to do so?
Do note, before making any decision. That the Europeans are not just any typical refugees, they're mostly former industrialists, world leaders, ministers, higher middle class people. People with significant skills, and there are a lot of them that are settling into Taiwan.I think we should punt them too Australia and New Zealand.
20 March: Nestor Makhno, Chairman of the Commune of France, has died due to Tuberculosis, an immediate election was held within the French commune.
3 April: Daniel Guérin, a leading member of the Anarchistes faction within the CGT, was elected as the new Chairman of the French Commune. He promised extending social reforms while also ‘strengthening the French military to fight the enemies of the revolution to the East.’
15 April: British Elections, factionalism within the TUC has lead to the eventual loss of the Maximist faction in the April Election. Oswald Mosley was replaced by Clement Attlee, a member of the Congregationist faction within the TUC. Mosley vowed to ‘fight tooth and nail’ against Attlee’s proposed social and economic reforms.
Hahahaha, this is darkly hilarious...CPS is so fucked. The Totalists got kicked out. And instead of too-careful-not-enough-active conservatives we have a combination of Radicals and Anarchists that want A) permanent revolution everywhere, so expect a MASSIVE increase of support for local Socialist factions in non-aligned states and Left-aligned rebels in the CPS...B) we are so dead if they pull off a UASR on us with libertine social developments, basically going with the "do as you would be done by’ (Matt. 7:12)" when it comes to maximum personal liberty that doesn't infringe on anyone else's liberty...and bruising another one's ego by one's displays of personal liberty doesn't count as an infringement on another's one's liberty, example: if a woman goes nude down a full street of people...it is cannot be counted as an infringement on the other pedestrian's liberty, some conservative folks will just feel their egos getting bruised but whatever. In short, 'What isn't forbidden outright by any laws is permitted.'. This means that if we go Women Equality...they will go Women Equality plus Permitted Polyamory. If we go SexEd to be done in schools...they will go SexEd plus LGBTQ+ rights. Radicals and Anarchists will always be able to one-up-manship us when it comes to personal liberties.10 September: The Union of Britain and Commune of France announces a boycott of the entirety of the Co-Prosperity sphere, the rest of the Third Internationale quickly followed, this cooled relationships between CPS and Third Internationale Countries significantly, with CPS member states in particular decrying such acts of ‘Economic Sabotage’ for their economic development.
So ITTL AK-47 Rifle.27 December: Syndicat Fabrique Nationale, an arms company in the Wallonian Commune, began constructing a new type of Service Rifle for the Batavian and Wallonian Armies, little do these governments know of just how popular the rifle would be worldwide.
Don't be so pessimistic. You're assuming that there isn't any form of pushback within both Britain and France. Just because politicians promise some things doesn't mean that they can deliver it. And remember, just because a government legislates things, doesn't mean that the social norms are going to be following suit....we are so fucked. The Totalists got kicked out. And instead of too-careful-not-enough-active conservatives we have a combination of Radicals and Anarchists that want A) permanent revolution everywhere, so expect a MASSIVE increase of support for local Socialist factions in non-aligned states and Left-aligned rebels in the CPS...B) we are so dead if they pull off a UASR on us with libertine social developments (basically going with the "do as you would be done by’ (Matt. 7:12)" when it comes to maximum personal liberty that doesn't infringe on anyone else's liberty...and bruising another one's ego by one's displays of personal liberty doesn't count as infringement).

Perhaps this might be foreshadowing for things to come?17 December: We Charge Genocide. A series of essays accusing the American Union State Government for the Genocide of African Americans, during the Second American Civil War and during Peacetime, began being widely distributed all across predominantly African American Neighborhoods in America.
Oh fuck. I missed that.Also, for the Americans. What do you think of this event happening?
Perhaps this might be foreshadowing for things to come?
Okay.Calm down, Europe might have the upper hand but as long as we manage to survive long enough the economies of Asia will outsize them due to a larger population and better access to resources. Assuming the development of China would be orders of magnitude faster than OTL, by the early 70s the CPS will likely surpass the Internationale in GDP. SocDem Pan-Arabism is a thing here, right? We can secure it the Middle East by helping the Arab states unite, pumping enough money in them that they'll never fall, and making sure they have diverse non-purely oil-based economies. Much of Africa isn't that essential, and with white colonialism still in memory, most of the nations there wouldn't be too favourable to the Internationale. South Africa, the nations located on the Nile and the Niger River are the only ones that kind of matter, as iirc, Africa at this time only had a population around the size of Russia as the green revolution wasn't a thing yet. Resource exploitation in Africa would take a long time, and it's best if Japan sets it's focus elsewhere for now. A third American civil war is very unlikely, but still, anything that weakens America would not be a good thing for us. If the liberalization of the Union State happens, so be it, but we should remain ready to support it at any cost should it seem to be close to collapse.
You entice China and India by repeating wha Deng Xiaoping started doing in the 1990s... create the greatest social-economic uplift of people in history and eradicate most of poverty. Japan is already well-liked by Asia in this timeline and they are quite comfortable with slowly letting China out shadow them than bother with the insane effort to keep them in a leash. Japan's interests are China's interests, and so are Korea's and India's. There is no need for us to bother setting up a new HQ for the CPS. It is a waste of time and resources. Save that for later when the CPS starts transitioning into a true Asian Union à la OTL's EU. Besides, why would we give up the historical prestige of being the founding member of the CPS?
