The nukes are overrated. Already cities like Tokyo were being bombed and destroyed with normal bombs. It also highly discredits the Americans who fought in the pacific - SoldierOfFortune

After a while, Germany was restored from East and West Germany to a whole country again, and it's like nothing ever happened. - JustAnAccount

Was literally divided (especially Berlin) and the economy was drastically affected. - Metalhead1997

"They didn't get nuked 2 times", but their economical rate decreased a lot. Plus they lost a lot of their citizens as soldiers. - zxm

As to any real economic benefit, America didn't finish paying off its war debt (its "borrowing" from the Fed and paying off on war bonds) until the early 1980s. By the way, thanks to FDR's socialist policies, the depression in America lasted 8 years longer than the rest of the industrialized world.

The US was affected by WWII in a good way, surprisingly. The war picked the country out of the Great Depression in the '40s. It created more jobs and more production of supplies, also. - Turkey

We flat out almost went bankrupt fighting the Japanese. - Metalhead1997

The war made us lose Philippines but who cares
We still earned Guam - AStumpedHuman

It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

Though it probably wouldn't be first, many of the bloody battles were fought in the Philippines, notably the battle of Manila. Though not as many people were killed, most of the city was entirely leveled. Along with it years of Culture and many people's homes.

Many infrastructure were being built before the war, and nearly all was destroyed. Manila was a battlefield, thousands of soldiers and innocent people died resisting against the Japanese. Philippines was the last country to surrender in Southeast Asia.
