The West is called the 'Communist Union of Polish Nationalists' or 'CUPN'. The East is named 'Soviet States of Polish Socialists' or 'SSPS'. The Soviets took a different approach to governing the East by making states like the USA.

August 1938: Italian Civil War starts. As a new neighbour to Italy, Germany sends troops into Italy to aid the communists.
May 1938: As all the invasions had been happening in about 1 year and a 1/2, this had been putting strain on the German government. Anti-communist revolts start popping up in German occupied territory. Especially since Germany had been heavily punishing anyone who disagreed with communism and was heavily antisemitic like the Soviet Union (like Nazi Germany was in OTL).
June 1938: Germany pulls out of Italy to fight the rebels. Public executions start happening around German occupied territory. Germany create VNAV - Volks Nationalen Aufstand Verteidigungskraft (German National Riot Defence Force) to stop these riots. However, these forces were really just firing squads.
