Default Creating a plausible, consistent alternate universe

I haven't done any creative recording before, but I have always enjoyed it, and for a few months now I've been thinking of making "something" that takes place in an alternate history.

It diverges from our reality not long after WWI: WWII never happened, the modernist/humanist ideals that had begun to emerge around that time have actually taken root, and a fairly benign science-based "socialism-lite" has established itself globally.

I'm trying to extrapolate this scenario out about seventy years after the divergence. Compared to our reality, I imagine greater advances have been made wrt to social problems and personal psychology, but that technology and economic development have lagged behind.

While what I've described serves primarily as a neutral backdrop for character- and event-driven drama, I do foresee certain elements of this alternate reality playing a prominent role in some of the stories.

I guess my question is: how does one develop an alternate reality like this in way that's internally consistent and believable? I don't even know if this is a "thing" but it seems like it should be.
