Well, the US does have more lawyers than the rest of the planet so the invaders are forced to settle out of court and bankrupted in the process. The US wins and gets a lasting piece of, well everything...

In the postwar Japan controls the Philippines, Java, Timor, Hawaii, California, Alaska, New Zealand, New Caledonia, French Polinesia, Tasmania, Alaska, California, Peru, Chile & Bolivia with unlimited resources and space.
60% of Japan's population relocates to the new colonies, relieving demographic pressure.

China controls continental Asia (except Korea, India, Mongolia and the eastern USSR), Formosa, Australia, New Guinea, Samoa, the rest of the former DEI, Washington State & Ecuador. 100 million Chinese spread all over the new territories, relieving demographic pressure in China.

Poland controls 1/2 of Lithuania, 1/2 of East Prussia, 1/4 of contiguous Germany, Nova Scotia, Quebec, New Foundland, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, the Guyanas, Massachutes, Maine & Connecticut.

Austria controls Switzerland, Northern Italy, Croatia, Alabama, Missoury, Missisipi, Georgia, 1/2 of Hungary, 1/4 of Germany & 1/6 of Brazil.

Czechoslovakia controls Texas, Oklahoma, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Slovenia, 1/4 of Germany, 1/2 of Hungary, 1/2 of Columbia and 1/6 of Brazil.

Korea controls Ecuador, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado & Costa Rica.

The USSR controls the middle east, Turkey, Afghanistan, India, Africa, Madagascar, Ceylon and the other Indian Ocean Islands, the rest of Europe & the Americas. 60% of the Indian population is relocated to sparsely populated areas, relieving demographic pressure.

So 6 powerful nations rule the world.
Eliminating Hitler and stopping Japan on its tracks early, ensures the survival of millions of Germans, Chinamen, Japanese, Poles, Jews, Ukranians, etc, so science, medicine, engineering, etc, prosper much faster in 100 years of Pax Sovietica, without wasteful cold war and dozens of small, inefficient, corrupt democracies.
Soccer prospers, while baseball, basquetball, American football, etc, fade into oblivion. Polish sausages, Wiener Schnitzel, true Chinese food, etc, displace burgers, fake Chinese food, corndogs, etc, Rap, heavy metal and other noises never see the light of day.

Talking about logistics. Despite the ridiculously huge flow of supplies, trucks, etc, into Europe, it's quite interesting than Patton was allowed to advance only after he captured a German, synthetic fuel depo. The sea of supplies had been allocated to snail-pace Monty. Some logistics.

Perhaps the most surreal, wasteful logistics in history is the Americans wasting years, billions of dollars and thousands of lives building the Burma road and flying thousands of tons over the hump to China (flying in the fuel they would use in the return flight!), instead of the huge RN and USN, Indian, Chinese, US and British armies simply capturing Burma in weeks in 1942, like the Japanese had (instead of invading Guadalcanal, French Madagascar, Morocco and other completely useless areas). That would have permitted supplying China again by train, kicking the Japanese out of China and Malaya, bombing Japan from China and the DEI from Malaya in 1943, basing USN subs in the Chinese and Malay coast, etc, Brilliant strategy and logistics indeed.

The Alaska road in the second most surreal, wasteful logistics undertaking in history.

I'm curious... Do the Central American drug cartels employ testers for their products...?

There are not many big drug cartels in Central America (Guatemala, Honduras, el Salvador, Belize, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama). Mexico is mostly in North America and Columbia is mostly in South America.
There is no need for testers, Americans will buy any white dust to sniff, inject or smoke (even if it's mostly baking soda) or pill in any amount and at any price. They must be very happy.
