Afghanistan is a nation in Central Asia. When Dr. Manhattan leaves for Mars on 20 October 1985, deterrence breaks down, and the Soviet Union, emboldened, invades Afghanistan (something which happened in our world in 1979). A global nuclear war looms which is only averted when the contending powers come to believe that the Earth is threatened by aliens, thanks to Ozymandias's ambitious hoax.
