Many Bavarians and Austrians are fine with this placement, being far enough away from Bavarian influence which could corrupt the Diet. This new Diet will occupy supremacy over both the Curias Bavaria and Austria, and in essence will act as an Upper House to both regional Curias. Prince Friedrich-Rudolf is married to Princess Mari of Brittany. Concerning Venezia, Queen Frances and the Deutsche Diet begin implementing policies similar to the policies King Leopold II adopted after the devastating war on Austria. Specifically, poorhouses are established all over Venezia, the streets are cleaned up, and taxes are lowered greatly as the Deutsche Diet pay for 40% of post-war expenses. In war news, many see 1760 as the final year of the conflict. The Austrian Revolt has essentially run dry, but no Bavarian force can counter its strength due to the invasion of Frederick von Croÿ-Habsburg. As 1760 opens, the sieges of Augsburg, Munich, and Landshut are underway. Augsburg falls on February 13, and the Diet Palace is immediately set up as a headquarters for part of Frederick's army. Munich and Landshut are able to weather the sieges for a few more months as the rest of the country reels from a rapid, unprecedented civil war. In areas that he does control, Frederick orders that the infrastructure is repaired and renovated, and his officials be sent around the country for various, informational purposes. Furthermore, Queen Maria-Amalia, now stylizing herself as Mary I, lowers taxes in northern Bavaria and acts similarly to her husband by ordering the population to aid in efforts to repair roads, bridges, farmlands, and general infrastructure. Bavaria, a major power by the end of the War on Spain, is now so seriously pushed back by the civil war that it might take at least a decade or more to recover the military and economic might the country had before 1758. The Siege of Munich ends in July upon the city's capitulation. Adolph Clemenz refuses to swear fealty to Frederick and insists he is arrested. He claims that he cannot commit treason against a false king. Soon after Munich falls, Queen Frances I realizes the futility of her stand against her invaders. With that, Landshut surrenders on August 9. Frederick then enters the city and immediately storms into Trausnitz. Frances's personal guards are spared, due to them being ordered to stand down, and Frances herself and Princess Joan are treated well. Of course, by nightfall, both the Queen and her daughter are imprisoned, along with Felix Manzkari. On August 10, Frederick officially declares Frances's reign invalid and illegitimate, and with the newly coerced support of the Curia Bavaria, he declares himself and his wife as King Frederick I and Queen Mary I of Bavaria. Frances is relegated to being a Princess, like her daughter Joan. Due to the hospitalty and loyalty of Regensburg, Frederick declares the city the new capital of Bavaria, abandoning Landshut. However, before travelling north to Regensburg, Frederick instead travels south to meet with the enthusiastic Austrian rebels. He meets them halfway in Passau, and it is there he declares them Saviours of Austria and promises to reward them Tyrol, Venezia, and Salzburg in 1761. With that, the Austrian revolt is effectively over. In September, Frederick and Mary, and their prisoners, arrive in Regensburg and establish their capital there. The population of Regensburg also rises, as large portion of refugees followed Frederick from Landshut. Later in the month, Frederick orders the Deutsche Diet to resume their parliamentary activities in Augsburg. To handle the issues of Brandenburg and Pomerania, Frederick appoints friendly councils to govern the realms until he can appoint appropriate Dukes. After September, Frederick's new reign quiets down. He works on repairing the infrastructure of the realm, boosting national morale, reconstructing the military, and restoring the royal treasury. Queen Mary I aids him in his military endeavors and contributes greatly to reforming the army. Queen Mary, and her council of financiers and merchants, also attempt to reform the economy, left in the mud after the War on Spain and only worsened during the civil war. She institutes temporary tax reforms and orders the construction of poorhouses around the major cities. Mary also encourages industrialization and urbanization in Stuttgart, a city mostly unaffected by the war. By New Years', the couple's reign seems secured, however there is still the issue of Duke, now techincally King, Franz-Hector. Upon hearing of his mother's deposition, Franz-Hector does not initially act, persisting she will be Queen no matter what. However, the Duke also hears the false rumour concerning his mother's execution, and proclaims himself King of Bavaria on December 21. Wanting to secure military support, he marries Sybille of Brandenburg to a wealthy Hamburgian noble scion, and is promised troops. The year ends with a much less dark atmosphere than it began. War is over, and Bavaria is able to slightly recover by the last day of December. The country has admitedly seen worse, but the civil war of 1758 to 1760 will be prominent in any history books. The amount of military and economic degradation, coupled with political turmoil and a polarized population, made the conflict an almost unprecedented even in Bavarian history. The Wittelsbachs, having ruled Bavaria for nearly 600 years, were fragmented and swept away by who is essentially a craft upstart who married into the right family. It is clear that conflict is not yet over, as long as Franz-Hector, or his mother, ex-Queen Frances, live.
    • CuriaBavariaFlagCuria Bavaria: The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. Parliament orders the Bavarian Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement the Bavarian Commands and Collegiate Writs into a codified, national law. Bavarians and Austrians who remain loyal to Frances I establish their headquarters in the old parliamentary house.
    • CuriaAustriaFlagCuria Austria: Work on the Parliamentary Palace in Vienna finishes. A number of 251 Austrians sit in the Austrian parliament. Most of the laws they pass concern continual relief for Vienna and various infrastructural reconstructions around Austria. The Curia Austria is popular in Vienna, with most welcoming a separate legislative body, while others see it as a Bavarian puppet. New roads continue being constructed. The Curia Austria call for greater legislative power in Austria. Frances of Bavaria continues to give support to Austrian parliamentarians. Ferdinand von Ingschaft, in an address to the Curia Austria, petitions Frances I to create a dual Bavaro-Austrian parliament. The Curia Austria is transferred to the Austrian rebels and serves as a main base for their operations.
    • Ddcoa2Deutsche Diet: The Deutsche Diet, also known as the German Parliament or German Diet, is established by the decree of Queen Frances I in 1736, and is given a charter that year. Felix Manzkari continues supporting of Austrian annexation of Tyrol and Venezia. The Diet observes the unrest brewing in Austria, but no parliamentarian suggests anything that could agitate the situation further. Manzkari, on the other hand, allies himself with the factions that support Austrian annexation of the newly conquered realms. The Deutsche Diet is suspended following the outbreak of rebellion in Austria
    • Flagge der Hansestadt LübeckCity of Lübeck: Troops authorized by the Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. The port of Lübeck is expanded and several ships are constructed.
    • Flag of BremenBremen Port: Troops authorized by the Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. Several cogs are constructed, and plans are drafted to construct many larger ships. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port.
    • Flag of AustriaKingdom of Austria: Troops authorized by the Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. The Austrian Council is created as an independent privy council for the King. In 1730, Frances is declared Queen of Austria. In other news, anti-Bavarian sentiment rises as more and more Austrians call for the annexation of Tyrol and Venezia. The sentiment explodes into mass dissent starting in 1756. In 1758, the population of Vienna breaks into open rebellion, and by year end control all of Austria, plus Salzburg.
    • Flag of Most Serene Republic of VeniceKingdom of Venezia: Troops authorized by the Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. Frances is declared as Queen of Venezia in 1750. In following the example of her grandfather King Leopold II, Queen Frances initiates the Venetian Restoration, which aims to improve the general infrastructure of the country after the great destruction of the previous war. Poorhouses are established all around the country, particularly in Venice and Tyrol. Furthermore, the streets are cleaned up of wartime debris and rubble. Frances I also launches a propaganda campaign in Venice. Her ministers in Venice villify decades of Spanish hegemony, and depict the efforts of Hispanicization in Italy as akin to genocide and the forced destruction of the Italian peoples. Furthermore, in an effort to lower anti-Bavarian sentiment in Venice, royal ministers depict the Bavarians as a benevolent aide, while the Croatians are displayed as marauding bandits and murderers who are responsible for the destruction the city is facing. These tactics, aiming to condemn the Spanish and elevate the Bavarians and Italians, is somewhat effective. Most living in the region care little of the causation of their misery, and only that it dissipates quickly. Seeing this development, the Deutsche Diet agree to pay for 40% of all expenses in Venezia, and lower the taxes in Venezia by a substantial amount. This tactic brings a much more welcome response. In military news, 4,500 Bavarian and Austrian troops are left stationed in Venezia in case any violent uprising occurs. Venezia remains loyal to Queen Frances I in the face of the Austrian rebellion and Frederick's invasion.
    • Flagge Preußen - Provinz BrandenburgDuchy of Brandenburg: Troops authorized by Duchess Sybille, aged 30, continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. Sybille I's children are: Sophia-Andrea (born 1756), George (born 1758), and Josephina (born 1759). Edmund II dies on the battlefield in 1759. Sybille, his daughter, is declared Duchess of Brandenburg, but is ineffective as long as she remains hiding in Neustadt.
    • Pommernflagpm3Duchy of Pomerania: Troops authorized by Duke Franz-Hector I, aged 28, continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. A university, with slight Catholic foundations, is founded in Stettin, which is named the Lady Mary University, after the late Duchess Mary. Franz-Hector marries Matilde DuBarry in 1754. Franz-Hector receives 2500 troops and an extra 500 guards from his mother in the face of Frederick's invasion. Franz-Hector flees to Neustadt in 1759. Duchess Matilde becomes pregnant by year end. Sadly, she dies in childbirth in 1760, devastating Duke Franz-Hector I.
    • RBCcoaRoyal Bavarian Stock Company: The RBSC, founded in the late fifteenth century, is finally formalized and given a royal charter by King Leopold II in 1662. The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In exploratory news, while much of Bavaria is immersed in Civil War, the RBSC decides to fund expeditions into Indonesia, particularly around Borneo and the tribelands of Negara Dipa. In 1732, the investors of the RBSC put forth a combined total of 500,000 reichstalers in the construction of ships, training of private troops, and a military expedition into Negara Dipa next year. Conflict is expected to occur in coming decades.
    • NewBavariaFlagNew Bavaria: The colony of Nei Baiern continues to expand in population. Katharinas-Hafen, Franznacken, Bayreuth, Nei Regens, and Regenholz all expand by the end of the year. Houses and shops in each settlement continue being built. Jülichsberg and Wittlesberg both expand. Nei Baiern expands 2000 km. The militias and shops are developed. A small logging and fishing town is founded north of Wilhelmsbaum island, on the mainland. The settlement, mainly populated by Saxons, comes to be called Regenholz. News of the Austrian rebellion reaches Borealia. Many colonial Austrians are delighted at the notion of Austrian resurgence, and consistently poke fun at their Bavarian relatives, but ultimately, the situation is of little concern to them, as both groups live in relatively harmonious economic and social equilibrium.
    • NewSwabiaFlagNew Swabia: The colony of Neu Schwaben is established in 1750. The colony is situated in the humid, tropical regions of south-central Borealia, and is mostly composed of Spanish-speaking Hispanics, as well as Aztecan and Mayan settlers. In Europe, Bavarians are encouraged to settle in Nei Schwaben.
    • NewAustriaFlagNew Austria (Colony of Bavaria): The economy and military improve. The mountains and valleys are now adorned with modern cities, with smaller villages sprawling out into the countryside. The university, along with many other major buildings of New Vienna, are completed in an ornate baroque style. The government is very grateful for the new flag sent from her majesty. The flag of New Austria is now required to flown from every public building in the colony. To fully show their gratitude, a bronze statue of Queen Frances is being designed by the artist Johnn de la Franz, to be placed in the town square of New Vienna. Businesses for manufacturing carpentry, textiles, and metalwork continue to grow, and these commodities are exported to the neighboring French and German colonies by land and sea. New cities are planned along the Amerigo River (OTL Columbia River) as far as Santiago, in order to bridge gaps in urbanization. The professional army is continually trained, while the forts are expanded and new artillery are manufactured. The first navy is completed, while more caravels and frigates are constructed back home. A synthesized Hispanic-German culture is emerging from the younger generation, and the young men now refer to themselves as Boralians. A novel by Martin de la Venn, published in 1760, first coins this term. However, there still remains a small enclave of pure Hispanics in small, northern villages. They still insist on flying the double-headed eagle along side the Bavarian flag. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in the northeastern forests. A census is taken to mark the tenth anniversary of the colony, and the population is found to be 1.1 million: 800,000 colonists of Hispanic descent, 200,000 Austrians and 100,000 Bavarians. Diplomats are sent to the french colonies, establishing mutual trade relations and asking the 40th Parallel to be recognized as our border. In the north, the colony expands northeast 200 km, as far as Lake Maria (OTL Lac St. Anne). A trading post is established near this lake. An exploration team, headed by Colonel William de la Newburg, is sent northeast from this fort.
    • PearlRiverFlagPearl River: The outpost of Perlefluss is established. A capital is expected to be constructed over the next few years. The capital of Pearl River is established, which the settlers name Perlefluss (Pearl River) after the outpost itself.
  • Wu: The Wu barely won a war with Yue sending 200.000 troops to topple them across the whole Yue nation. The infrastructure is built and exported. Economy expanding.
  • Tartary: The nation experiences a brief increase in Siberian expansion this year, led by the agricultural peoples of the Volga or the emigrant Turks, as well as a wave of Sakha and Ket expansion along the main rivers. Much of the northern half of the Yenisey and Lena rivers is already in Tatar hands, while the Ob is entirely under control of the Emperor. We continue exploring and expanding east. The military also begins to be modernised. This turn is dedicated to economic expansion. We mobilize fully for the war against Japan. Our vassals likewise prepare for war, while our territories in the far east, under personal union, also prepare defenses.
  • Grand Duchy of Moscow: This turn in Moscow and all vassals is officially dedicated to economic. We begin recovering from recent wars and rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and defenses. Surprised by the sudden betrayal we faced by our neighbors, we put aside resources for new fortifications and an undated military. Ship production continues, as does trade along our many trade routes. The settlement at St. Patriksburg is expanded, with a large kremlin and port being constructed.
  • Lombardy: We continue rebuilding the nation after the recent war with Spain.The military is reformed from the foundation of units formed during the war, and trained to adequately defend the nation. This turn is officially dedicated to economy or military. We continue influencing Switzerland.
  • In Aragon, the nation continues rebuilding after the great destruction caused by the war. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads, and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. The construction of new ships and the purchase of foreign weaponry continues. The government issues bonds to help stabilize the federal economy. Meanwhile, the Assembly seeks to formally establish relations with BavariaWestphalia-Netherlands, and Britannia independent of the Treaty of Toledo. A mutual defense pact is offered to Italy.
    • Britannian Diplomacy: Seeing Aragon as a suitable Mediterranean nation, Emperor James I agrees to establish relations between the two nations.
  • Uruguay: The government quells the protesting, forming a more democratic government, and allowing the Spaniards to install certain laws within their communities, similar to the native populations. We demand that New Spain ends their meddling in other nations affairs, and ask the Roman Empire to back us up. The military continues to build up, and the economy continues to improve.
  • Croatian Archvoivodeship (Hrvatsko Nadvojvodstvo): Economy turn. Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of the Archvoivodeship. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan and also Britannic expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. As the war for Hungary ends, some Croats and Hungarians are still unsatisfied as not all was achieved since the spoils of war had to be shared with the Romans. With the end of the war against Hispania, Croatia attempts to rebuild its economy using the control over Hercules' Pillars as a support. Trade routes are strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. The Brothers of the Raven continue spreading their influence in Croatia. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. The navy, under command of the Bajan and the First Admiral is developed due to the purchase of Britannic ships which are inspected and introduced into the Royal War Navy of Croatia or HBRM (Hrvatska Bajanska Ratna Mornarica). Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. Britannic assistance aids with the naval reform. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. The adminisstrative reform continues. The government fails to reclaim Poland.
    • Czech Voivodeship (Češko Vojvodstvo): The Voivodeship recovers from the Idiocracy's rule and many nobles gain more power in the nation.
    • Silesian Voivodeship (Šlezijsko Vojvodstvo): The Voivodeship's natural resources are highly sought in the rest of the nations with which is connected, which leads to economic growth. The Silesian cultural movement flourishes with aid of the Croats, who aim to make Silesia a region independent from both Poland and the Czechia.
    • Županija Dahomey: The natural resources are quickly put to use, such as coconuts, cotton both refined and raw as well as the gold. Finally, the wood industry prospers as materials are needed for new ships that would help keep the connection between Croatia and Dahomey strong.
    • Isles of the Archvoivodeship (Otoci Nadvojvodstva): The infrastructure is built up.
    • Županija of Hercules Pillars' (Županija Herkulovih Stupova): The županija's pivotal position as a trade nod creates an a sufficite allowing for the economy to expand.
  • County of Oldenburg: The military expands after several years of economic improvement. The Regency Council urges Hamburg to consider the Rhineland's plea, and states that it will accept Hamburg's judgment on the matter.
  • The Nehilaw continue to modernize and advance their interests, as do all vassals. With the restoration of the gift economy following the civil war, many of landlords and nobles are dispossessed of much of their fortunes, while peasants are considerably enriched and placed at an advantage. Nomadic herding becomes less common as more people settle down to farm or to participate in new, more specialized industries such as mining or weaving. Seeking to reduce the economy's dependence on commodities in the export market, the High Sachem begins sponsoring specialized craftsmen from Europe to immigrate and settle down. Many thousands take up his offer, particularly from France. Both luxury goods like casino, furs and ivory and more practical goods like whale oil, lumber and dried cod are traded. The military grows, with the High Sachem seeking to create a small weapons-manufacturing industry to supply it, and sponsoring many gunsmiths to achieve this. With abundant supplies of guano in the nation, gunpowder production becomes an important industry throughout.In the nation's southernmost regions, fertilizer use, mainly based around guano, vastly increases agricultural production, supplemented with the increased use of crop rotations and rest years for fields. The campaign against the Winnebago comes to an end in their ultimate defeat this year. A major internal reorganization occurs this year; Chisasibi and Chippawa are annexed to the Nehilaw. As the High Sachem dies, the Chief of Odawa, Isapo Mistahi, becomes the new High Sachem, placing the Chiefdom and the Sachemate in personal union. The Menominee are annexed into the Odawa Chiefdom following their defeat. The Nehilaw offer their western territories to be placed under French administration in return for naval assistance.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The Ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. After almost two years of conversations, the Grand Senate, now short many members, agrees that given poland's recent declarations, them doing nothing will make them look weak, and the fact that the colloquially-named "unholy" alliance is re-instituting serfdom must not stand. Einzbern makes a clear stance, and fully mobilizes the nation with siege engines to "re-institute democracic order against this illegal coup d'etat". This creates a spike in his popularity. The Story about how the so-called Royal alliance sent back the heads of the union officials that went to set up things makes the rounds throughout the nation, and riles up people for war. The Union forces advance further and further into Prussia, but with smaller success than in Lithuania, as the forces have regrouped, and are giving the largest pushback. However, under the stern leadership of Erik von Einzbern, the forces, with the help of the Polish, decide not to go streight for konigsberg, but instead conquer surrounding territories in order to reduce the amount of resources, recruit the locals to their side, and push out the "slavers". By the end of the year, Konigsberg is besieged by both union and Polish forces, and it seems as though the days of the Royal Baltic Alliance are at an end...With union succeses, many of the local peasants are incentivised to resist their noble overlords. Much more conflict happens, and by the end of the year, After this battle, forces capture most of the Lithuanian territory by the end of the year, and begin pushing into prussia, gaining the support of the local farmers as they are freed from their serfdom, and hapily accept the union into their homes and cities, some of them even joining union armies to replenish their ranks. under the occupation, elections for the Seimas of Lithuania are held, and it holds its first session, where much of the revolting nobles are accused of high treason. Erik von Einzbern, delivers a message on the 24th of December during the Siege of Konigsberg: Surrender peacefully, and all soldiers under the Rank of colonel will be granted amnesty (this is the same policy that was used with other prisoners of war, and in Lithuania). Much fo the "royal" Lithuanian army is pardoned, and allowed to go back to their daily lives (especially since a large portion deserted). However the commanders are tried and convicted of High treason, their lands, titles, and wealth officially confiscated, and they themselves were exiled for life, with no chance of reprieve(basically sent to that prison on an island in the middle of nowhere - well, the Bahamas but you get the point, the only thing in a few km radius is water, and the only thing on the island is prison)
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn.

    • In the United Republic of Prussia and Danzig benefits from the de facto free trade with Croatia begin to show and grow its economy, GDP and average wages, as Prussian merchants, quick to capitalize on the downfall of aristocratic privileges in favour of wealth privileges (that many nobles got because they were also wealthy, and those that were did not care for the fate of the "lesser" nobility). Nikolaus Hohenzollern does his things and whatnot as governour. the Hohenzollerns take advantage to rile support for the old system. Enough time has passed for people to grow rather cynical, and thus some support for a return to at least partial aristocracy has become to increase. political leaders come to pskov to discuss things as tensions decrease due to Conciliatory attitudes.
    • The Belarus Military is improved as the Road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery. The civil war continues...
  • Roman Empire: The Empire celebrates its unprecedented victory in the war against Spain and the liberation of Rome. Roman forces come home to massive applause in the streets and both Emperor Andrew I and the Senate are acclaimed for their victory. Despite this victory, Andrew I is an old man and he is not expected to last much longer. With his son dead, one of his two grandsons is expected to succeed him as Emperor. The Empire does what it can to solidify its gain in Italy, and rebuilds roads, forts, and cities after the destructive war. Trade routes, long damages from the war yet mostly untouched within the eastern Mediterranean, are re-established in order to bring Roman trade power back up to its prime while also expanding Roman influence, as Rome is now one of the most powerful states in the world. Industry slowly starts to build up in the Empire, as people rush to the cities in Greece and Anatolia in order to get jobs at factories, while plants begin to be built along rivers in order to use them for their power. Relations with new nations such as Navarre, Aragon, and Mexaco are established in order to expand Roman influence and trade in the world. The military, already with high morale after the war with Spain, continues to train and improve itself, in case of any revolts or invasions by another power. After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. With the changing political calculus in Kiev and the Tatary, Roman and Gothic officials begin constructing border defenses along the Gothic-Tatary border. The offer of the Arabs is accepted to a moderate degree, and some advanced ship designs and weapons are sent to them, although not all.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • Netherlands: Now in personal union with Westphalia, the king and queen vow to uphold the current political system and surrenders all the powers stipulated under the Act of common law and the Nassau Act. The current political environment of the Netherlands along with the growing enlightenment literature in the East leads to the growth of the Dutch Enlightened circles particularly in Brussels, Amsterdam, and The Hague. Thinkers such as Adriaan van Hogendrop, and Louis Simon Poullet become leaders of the ideas. Amongst their works are the King and the People, and The Brave New World prove very influential among academic circles, promoting the belief of economic liberty, State of mind and identity and the division of power (based on the works of OTL John Locke). The wealth of the Netherlands continues to grow to pre-civil war levels and it grows at a more sustainable level as the hold over trade and banking is solidified, while the hold over the East India trade Company is finalized. Trade increases substantially as peace remains high throughout the trading routes of the Dutch Empire and as cash crops and spice fetch large prices on the European market. Wallonia and Flanders continue to grow economically. Under the guidance of the new States-General led by Stadtholder Antonie van Namur the power of the Kingdom's legislation is stabilized and amplified allowing greater liberties to the productive and trading sectors. Wallonian steel increases in value again as it picks up. Cultural and scientific development continues in the Netherlands led by the university of Brussels, Frankfurt, and other institutions. Recent innovations and discoveries in the field of biology and microbiology, in addition to work done in Pskov and other nations, greatly increases investment and understanding in these fields. Architecture continues to develop as well as the cities are rebuilt. military and naval expansion continue. More ships of the line are built to help keep Dutch trading lines under control. The Dutch Royal Army stands at 45,000 strong in Europe while the colonies put together reach 35,000 mainly in the East Indies were Indians are recruited. Naval reforms begin. This turn in all Dutch possessions and territories is dedicated to military expansion.
    • Netherland's East India Company: With the reorganization of power beginning in the homeland reforms are started in the East Indies territories. Administration is overhauled to bring it into a centralized administration while local autonomy of the Company's vassals is reaffirmed. The Company army begins reforms to create three divisions of the so called Native troops, Indian troops, and European troops. Amongst the reforms put forward efforts to assimilate and convert the Malay and Javanese are ceased and respect of local cultures is assured. Major territorial reforms are passed With Brunei and the Malay peninsula (now Jehore) regaining significant internal autonomy while the cities of Malacca, Singapore, and the eastern part of Brunei remain under direct Dutch administration. Sunda remains under direct rule withe sultan receiving a pension. Southern Sumatra is added to the Dutch East Indies as a result of the war with payurung. The area is reorganized and administration is placed under Batavia. The first coffee plantation in the orient is established in Java.
    • Jehore and Brunei: Economic development continues. The East India Company restores local autonomy to the Malay peninsula Under the treaty of Malacca recognizing the Jehore dynasty as the sultans of Malay. A local Malay regiment is created from company troops to help administer the new sultanate though it remains a Dutch client State. 7000 troops are raised to aid in the war effort, and a fleet of 30 ships is placed under the control of the company.
    • Dutch Africa: The European-educated black elites in Benin are granted greater autonomy as long as they provide the quota of slaves, ivory and other tradable goods. efforts to break Austrian dominance in the Cameroon region begin. The Governor requests that The Hague enforce Dutch interests in the region and secure a deal with Austria at all costs.
    • Guiana: The population of Guiana has steadily grown over the past 100 years reaching a population of 20,000 white settlers and some 12,000 black slaves. Economic growth continues and Paramaribo is declared the colony's capital. Plantations continue to grow and demands to open the interior for further exploitation begin. Culturally the colony remains Dutch-Wallon. Relations with the natives continue to deteriorate as incursions into native land continues and enslavement of the native population begins to work in construction. Efforts to isolate and destroy native culture begin. Exploration of the interior continues as expansion along the new Rhine River (OTL Orinoco River) continue as well as along the Amazon River claiming 500 pixels in total. Expansion of military control into the Interior continues with outposts being constructed to enforce Dutch-Wallon rule over the colony. Dutch Privateers continue operating out of Guiana under false flags. Development of the Guiana Aristocratic culture continues as more land is set aside for plantations. Coffee becomes increasingly popular in the colony. New Antwerp and Paramaribo become major trading cities as the local economy grows following the civil war.
  • Westphalia: This turn is officially dedicated to military expansion in Frankfurt, Nassau, and Luxembourg. Hesse, Jülich, Köln, Lippe, Mainz, Paderborn, Pfalz, Berg, Brunswick-Göttingen, Westfalen, and our remaining vassals, this turn is dedicated to military expansion. Our territories are reorganized, with Frankfurt, Nassau, and Luxembourg remaining personal union with the Kingdom of Westphalia, and in turn the Netherlands, while our remaining territories are designated vassals. Our forces begin training using experience from recent wars, and ships are built in allied ports. Our colonies continue to be supplied through allied territory, although growth is slow. Trade increases with the nations of Oldenburg, Hamburg, and the Netherlands. Trade with our colonies and allies continues. Now that the entirety of the Westphalia region is united, including Frankfurt and Luxembourg, work begins on improving infrastructure between nations. The seed drill, previously invented by Johann Tserclaes, begins to become common place across the nation, greatly increasing the productivity of our agricultural sectors. The surplus in crops allows our nation to experience a large population increase, which continues from the previous year at a steady rate. Seeing the need for increased production of clothing and other cotton related products, the nation begins investing in the domestic woolen industry, since the nation lacks a major partner in India or elsewhere for importing of woolen goods. A heavy fabric cloth known as fustian becomes popular, made from flax warp and cotton weft. Although not as soft as cotton, and more difficult to sow, this fabric is much stronger.
  • Prussia: Frederick III von Hessen, an exile living in the Prussian region, has seized the newly-created throne of Prussia, putting the von Hessens back into power in a nation since their downfall in Westphalia. Frederick III joins the new nation back into the HRE, and also requests an alliance with France, Hamburg, Bavaria, Rome, and Croatia. He also improves the economy. He sends out exploration ships to Africa and America to find a good place for a colony

1761

The Zulu army is largely unstoppable thanks to sheer numbers and qualified leadership. They swiftly overrun most of the inner valleys, forcing the Dutch and Spanish out. Dutch soldiers and Spanish homesteaders are successful in defending the Cape, but most of the interior has been lost to the new Zulu state.

Rhineland effectively splits, with the southern part resisting any attempts of secession and remaining loyal to the French crown, while the northern part declares itself the Grand Duchy of the Rhineland and seeks closer ties with the Netherlands and the Holy Roman Empire.

Principality? I think they can dream a little bigger than that.

A duchy or grand duchy would be more appropriate IMO. -cookie

Grand Duchy it is. ~Edge (with permisson from MP)

The Osean rebellion, although mostly successful, suffers a number of defeats this year, mitigating the effect of recruitment from the last two years.

A small earthquake occurs in London. While it is not too serious, several chimneys are cracked. The British government asks for calmness in this time of grief.

At least no kettle was broken.

Note to all people with many vassals (read: Mscoree), please annex a large part of your vassals, PUs etc. by 1765 unless you have a solid reason why it shouldn't happen. Those who don't will suffer the consequences.

  • Duchy of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure and its subjects expand their militaries. The proposal to Galicia from 1759 is sent again. (Mod response please??)
  • Kingdom of Castile: The Kingdom of Castile sees a slight demographical as immigration from former Spanish colonies for the economic opportunity is on the rise. The Spanish population reaches about 17.5 million. The Empire officially begins a reform of the economic system looking to get away from reliance on gold and silver to bail the economy out of crisis from war debt, The bullion is instead geared toward giving the empire a competitive edge in being able to invest millions on a whim in order to drive up investments and production. However, in order to pay off debt, larger taxes are imposed on the wealthier class, with the current monarch starting to become less popular as the King of Castile, who already has been called "A bodacious fool" by the military commander. Meanwhile, the Castilian navy begins further development of its new larger classes of ships, churning out first rate flagships for various fleets, and more third rates, and fourth rates with the occasional second rate to augment the smaller patrol fleets the fifth and sixth rates begin to become more standard as light and medium frigates for singular voyages and patrols among other things. The Castilian attitudes on industrialism continue to change but the nobility seems rather unhappy about having to see more common people in major cities. With relatively no sources of power, the natural sources of power, and in some cases manpower are used for the increasing amount of textile mills among other things. The flocking of populations to Northern Spain continues with a mass increase of population in Madrid, Zaragoza, Pamplona and various other minor cities and townships throughout the north. Spanish troops continually expand on the French border with troop numbers being made deliberately vague to prevent the French from deducing the military forces strength.
  • Great Manchu Empire: With the sudden death of the previous Emperor, his eldest son-in-law Shinji Hiraku succeeded the throne and acquired the position of Emperor of the Manchu Empire. One of his first decisions was to establish a tax system to extract tax from the people but to also make sure that not too much pressure was put upon the peasants. The Emperor was keen on improving the agricultural status in the state, and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Trade with Korea, Imperium of Heaven and Japan proved beneficial as Manchu exported agricultural goods - especially lumber - to these states. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Meanwhile, a large army of roughly 300,000 men was raised to defend the state from any foreign invasion with the soldiers handed light matchlock muskets snaphaunces, and with pikes equipped to be used while charging upon the enemy. Therefore, importance was given to the production of firearms and gunpowder. The infantry was equipped with daggers and swords to be utilised in close combat against the enemy and horses as well as carts were used for the transportation of supplies. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. Many eunuchs who opposed this decision were put to death and eventually, the system of eunuchs was put down to prevent any power from opposing the Emperor. The Emperor ordered an increase in the teaching of subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and especially on developing new firearms and many firearms imported from Hispania were reverse-engineered to create identical copies. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and build up our navy. Major military reforms were brought and a paramilitary force referred to as the Manchu Guards is initiated. The paramilitary comprising of 50,000 guards swore allegiance to the Emperor and were ordered to put down any rebellion swiftly and without mercy. Independence was declared from the Empire of Japan. As this happened, an end to the forceful spread of Shinto was declared and all those that refused to reconvert from Shinto were executed. Peace ensued after defeating the Lanzhou rebels however occasionally, Manchu soldiers attack Jin borders cause why the hell not? [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Shangjingkou: The state - being agriculturally strong - had numerous agricultural projects initiated and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state, and moreover these goods were exported to other Chinese states. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and built up our navy, eventually preparing a navy of 100 ships. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Kingdom of Shijiazuang: With the recent defeat of Hebei following its decision to aid Hispania, parts of the Kingdom of Hebei were officially integreted into the Empire of Manchuria. A paramilitary consisting of 10,000 Manchu was set up and members of the Royal family who were found were executed. The Emperor initiated the start of promotion of Japanese culture and Shinto in order to align the Kingdom of Hebei with Japan and to prevent any future rebellions. Meanwhile, schools were rapidly built and local merchants were made to engage in trade with the Japanese.  [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Kingdom of Lanzhou: Develops are made in Lanzhou with the construction of schools and spread of Manchu teachings. Much more modern weaponry was flowed into Lanzhou and a militia consisting of 5000 men was established to look after the state security. With a rebellion taking place, soldiers are sent from all over the Empire to defeat both the Lanzhou usurpers and Jin Empire. Meanwhile, more than 500,000 people who had supported the Xi'an Kingdom were impaled.. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Uighur Khanate: Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon introduced a series of reforms which included support of settlement, ordering the people to put a halt to their nomadic lifestyles. Moreover, Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon supported the construction of schools in order to spread western knowledge to the rural areas and to educate the people. Meanwhile, a paramilitary consisting of 500 men was set up to maintain law and order in the state, and a system of spies had been established to eradicate opposition to Manchu rule. The native Mongol people were treated generously, but all those that had fought against the Manchu in the war were sent to work in the fields although this did mean that the populace did not take part in cultivation and harvest of crops. To modify the trade route present in the state, Dorgon initiated the start of the road system to link the trade route and by now, up to 5000 men were recruited into the military. Crops were cultivated to feed the poor, and a trade system had been established to trade with the Turkic tribes. Islam is allowed to flourish in Uighur Khanate and no interference is made in the religious matters for fear of the Uighur people rebelling. A major mosque is also constructed to please the Uighur for helping to crush the uprising in Lanzhou. [Mil/Eco Turn]
      • ​Manchu - Tatar Diplomacy: Have seen the Japs getting their ass whooped by Tartary, the Manchu express their desire to become Tatar bitches  develop relations between the two neighbouring states and initiate trade between the two. The Manchu Emperor also expresses delight at having seen the complete and total defeat of the Japanese forces, and sends the head of the Japanese diplomat that was stationed in Manchuria to the Emperor of Tartary.
      • Japanese - Manchu Diplomacy: Japan is enraged by the killing of our diplomat. We demand an explanation.
  • Nubia: The military continues to train loyal troops to fight for the nation. Cities continue to rebuild themselves like European cities. Ports expand to fit more ships. A big library is continuing being built in the capital city. It will store books from around the world. The first university in the country is continuing being built in the capital city. Our military continues to expand 100 px southwest. Walls and outposts around the capital city are continuing being built. Now that Nubia is unified, we continue to centralize the nation. Due to revolts The border control team continues to watch the borders carefully, because of what is happening in Yemen and because we do not want Ethiopia to attack us.
  • Kingdom of Italy: An Italian noble family by the name of Deluca, who once cooperated with the Romans in ages past, has been chosen to be the royal family of Italy. The leading member of the family, Dario, has been coronated as the King of Italy. Most properties formerly belonging to the Spanish royal family is confiscated and granted to the Delucas for their own personal use, while some of it being divided into small pieces of land and given to the poor. Roman forces are garrisoned in Italy to help the new administration govern the land and enforce its new laws. Both the Imperial government and the Italian nobles focus on important cities like Naples, Rome, Florence, Ravenna, Ancona, Bari, and Palermo, realizing that building loyalty and holding those cities are the key to maintaining Italy. Roman military forces train and supply the local Italian forces, many of whom are made up of former Italian soldiers under the Spanish Empire and Italian rebels during the war. As such, integration within the military is difficult and will take some time. The Romans also help with rebuilding damaged military infrastructure and fortifications across Italy. Most of Tuscany, Latium, and Naples are under the administration of the Italian government, and those regions remain the core of Italian administration and power. Italy also starts building a small military, aimed to aid the larger, parent Roman navy when in times of need. Rome, and the other Italian cities also grow at a good rate. As our ambitions grow bolder, we ask the Crown of Castile for an alliance with the Kingdom of Italy.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire celebrates its unprecedented victory in the war against Spain and the liberation of Rome. Roman forces come home to massive applause in the streets and both Emperor Andrew I and the Senate are acclaimed for their victory. Despite this victory, Andrew I is an old man and he is not expected to last much longer. With his son dead, one of his two grandsons is expected to succeed him as Emperor. The Empire does what it can to solidify its gain in Italy, and rebuilds roads, forts, and cities after the destructive war. Trade routes, long damages from the war yet mostly untouched within the eastern Mediterranean, are re-established in order to bring Roman trade power back up to its prime while also expanding Roman influence, as Rome is now one of the most powerful states in the world. Industry slowly starts to build up in the Empire, as people rush to the cities in Greece and Anatolia in order to get jobs at factories, while plants begin to be built along rivers in order to use them for their power. Relations with new nations such as Navarre, Aragon, and Mexaco are established in order to expand Roman influence and trade in the world. The military, already with high morale after the war with Spain, continues to train and improve itself, in case of any revolts or invasions by another power. After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. With the changing political calculus in Kiev and the Tatary, Roman and Gothic officials begin constructing border defenses along the Gothic-Tatary border. The offer of the Arabs is accepted to a moderate degree, and some advanced ship designs and weapons are sent to them, although not all.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Inca Empire: With the death of Apeac III, the nations of Tawatinsuyu and Vorlayacor fall into a Personal Union. The Andean Monarchy remains in control of Tawatinsuyu and her Vassals. The Population of Tawatinsuyu hits roughly 15 million. Military, economy and navy are improved. Cuzco Remains the largest City in the nation, with roughly 170,000 people. Other Cities include Peru, Machu Picchu, Chimor, Sican, New Burgundy, Deutchburg, and Wari. Ties between the Inca and Vorlayacor deepen, as the political ideologies of both nations adapt to suit each other. The Cuzco Codes are adopted in Vorlayacor. The Inca also begin to invest in Vorlayacor, encouraging the movement of Inca people into the nation to aid in recovery from the last epidemic. Buenos Noches are built up, each having around 1000 people. Military training between the two nations begins, with an active military of 95,000 and 110,000 in reserve. Navy is also built up, with the navy expanding to accommodate more ships. The Buenos Noches Doctrine is passed in the Inca. With the ongoing rebellions in the Spanish Territory, the Inca increase their military presence in the the newly acquired territory. Following the failures of Osean Rebels, the number of young, combat capable men that join the rebels drops, with only another 8000 joining the rebels. The government passes a new act, selling land cheap to the Spanish in remote parts of the empire. The hope is that this will led to the Spanish spreading across the empire.
  • Empire du Chimor (Vassal of the Inca, Member of the Andean Monarchy): Under the Andean Monarchy and French Rule, the nation of Chimor continues to grow. Population stands at roughly five million and continues to grow. French migration into the region increases as the nation is absorbed into the French sphere. Military, economy and navy improve.

We are able to invade their capital, and assassinate Nubia's king (which only plunges them further into chaos). A second university begins construction, and westernization continues.
  • Netherlands: Now in personal union with Westphalia, the king and queen vow to uphold the current political system and surrenders all the powers stipulated under the Act of common law and the Nassau Act. The current political environment of the Netherlands along with the growing enlightenment literature in the East leads to the growth of the Dutch Enlightened circles particularly in Brussels, Amsterdam, and The Hague. Thinkers such as Adriaan van Hogendrop, and Louis Simon Poullet become leaders of the ideas. Amongst their works are the King and the People, and The Brave New World prove very influential among academic circles, promoting the belief of economic liberty, State of mind and identity and the division of power (based on the works of OTL John Locke). The wealth of the Netherlands continues to grow to pre-civil war levels and it grows at a more sustainable level as the hold over trade and banking is solidified, while the hold over the East India trade Company is finalized. Trade increases substantially as peace remains high throughout the trading routes of the Dutch Empire and as cash crops and spice fetch large prices on the European market. Wallonia and Flanders continue to grow economically. Under the guidance of the new States-General led by Stadtholder Antonie van Namur the power of the Kingdom's legislation is stabilized and amplified allowing greater liberties to the productive and trading sectors. Wallonian steel increases in value again as it picks up. Cultural and scientific development continues in the Netherlands led by the university of Brussels, Frankfurt, and other institutions. Recent innovations and discoveries in the field of biology and microbiology, in addition to work done in Pskov and other nations, greatly increases investment and understanding in these fields. Architecture continues to develop as well as the cities are rebuilt. military and naval expansion continue. More ships of the line are built to help keep Dutch trading lines under control. The Dutch Royal Army stands at 45,000 strong in Europe while the colonies put together reach 35,000 mainly in the East Indies were Indians are recruited. Naval reforms begin. This turn in all Dutch possessions and territories is dedicated to military expansion. We continue to colonize and explore islands of the Pacific Ocean.
    • Netherland's East India Company: With the reorganization of power beginning in the homeland reforms are started in the East Indies territories. Administration is overhauled to bring it into a centralized administration while local autonomy of the Company's vassals is reaffirmed. The Company army begins reforms to create three divisions of the so called Native troops, Indian troops, and European troops. Amongst the reforms put forward efforts to assimilate and convert the Malay and Javanese are ceased and respect of local cultures is assured. Major territorial reforms are passed With Brunei and the Malay peninsula (now Jehore) regaining significant internal autonomy while the cities of Malacca, Singapore, and the eastern part of Brunei remain under direct Dutch administration.

    • Guiana: The population of Guiana has steadily grown over the past 100 years reaching a population of 20,000 white settlers and some 12,000 black slaves. Economic growth continues and Paramaribo is declared the colony's capital. Plantations continue to grow and demands to open the interior for further exploitation begin. Culturally the colony remains Dutch-Wallon. Relations with the natives continue to deteriorate as incursions into native land continues and enslavement of the native population begins to work in construction. Efforts to isolate and destroy native culture begin. Exploration of the interior continues as expansion along the new Rhine River (OTL Orinoco River) continue as well as along the Amazon River claiming 500 pixels in total. Expansion of military control into the Interior continues with outposts being constructed to enforce Dutch-Wallon rule over the colony. Dutch Privateers continue operating out of Guiana under false flags. Development of the Guiana Aristocratic culture continues as more land is set aside for plantations. Coffee becomes increasingly popular in the colony. New Antwerp and Paramaribo become major trading cities as the local economy grows following the civil war.
  • Westphalia: This turn is officially dedicated to military expansion in Frankfurt, Nassau, and Luxembourg. Hesse, Jülich, Köln, Lippe, Mainz, Paderborn, Pfalz, Berg, Brunswick-Göttingen, Westfalen, and our remaining vassals, this turn is dedicated to military expansion. Our territories are reorganized, with Frankfurt, Nassau, and Luxembourg remaining personal union with the Kingdom of Westphalia, and in turn the Netherlands, while our remaining territories are designated vassals. Our forces begin training using experience from recent wars, and ships are built in allied ports. Our colonies continue to be supplied through allied territory, although growth is slow. Trade increases with the nations of Oldenburg, Hamburg, and the Netherlands. Trade with our colonies and allies continues. Now that the entirety of the Westphalia region is united, including Frankfurt and Luxembourg, work begins on improving infrastructure between nations. The seed drill, previously invented by Johann Tserclaes, begins to become common place across the nation, greatly increasing the productivity of our agricultural sectors. The surplus in crops allows our nation to experience a large population increase, which continues from the previous year at a steady rate. Seeing the need for increased production of clothing and other cotton related products, the nation begins investing in the domestic woolen industry, since the nation lacks a major partner in India or elsewhere for importing of woolen goods. A heavy fabric cloth known as fustian becomes popular, made from flax warp and cotton weft. Although not as soft as cotton, and more difficult to sow, this fabric is much stronger.

  • NewAustriaFlagNew Austria (Colony of Bavaria): The economy and military improve. The mountains and valleys are now adorned with modern cities, with smaller villages sprawling out into the countryside. The university, along with many other major buildings of New Vienna, are completed in an ornate baroque style. The flag of New Austria is now required to be flown from every public building in the colony. A bronze statue of Queen Frances is being constructed by the artist Johnn de la Franz, to be placed in the town square of New Vienna. Businesses for manufacturing carpentry, textiles, and metalwork continue to grow, and these commodities are exported to the neighboring French and German colonies by land and sea. New cities are planned along the Amerigo River (OTL Columbia River) as far as Santiago, in order to bridge gaps in urbanization. The professional army is continually trained, while the forts are expanded and new artillery are manufactured. The first navy is completed, while more caravels and frigates are constructed back home. A synthesized Hispanic-German culture is emerging from the younger generation, and the young men now refer to themselves as Boralians. A novel by Martin de la Venn, published in 1760, first coins this term. However, there still remains a small enclave of pure Hispanics in small, northern villages. They still insist on flying the double-headed eagle along side the Bavarian flag. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in the northeastern forests. Diplomats are sent to the french colonies, establishing mutual trade relations and asking the 40th Parallel to be recognized as our border. In the north, the colony expands northeast 200 km, as far as Lake Maria (OTL Lac St. Anne). A trading post is established near this lake. An exploration team, headed by Colonel William de la Newburg, is sent northeast from this fort. Newberg's exploration team arrives within the domains of the Nehilaw Sachemate, and asks to establish mutual trade.

Mining continues in the colony of Nouvelle Orleans. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The king is outraged, for such freedom given to the Rhenish kingdom so much betrayal! In an act of sheer punishment he declares an all-out war against the rebels and the nobles he dispatches a coalition army of around 400.000 troops (from all around the empire) to quell the uprising. in the now called French Borealia, the displacement of small Spanish settlements begin, offering a free ride for them to return back into Castile, and exchange or sell their possessions in the colonies or swear allegiance to the King. The French King warns, that if the HRE gets involved with the Rhenish rebels there will be a blockade to Hamburg's ships and Dutch if needed and an eventual war declaration, We ask them to stay away from the issue in order to not to bring old resentments and avoid further conflicts, In colonial news, the Dominion of French Haut-Pirou (Alto Peru in Spanish) is offered to the Inca Dominion in order to strengthen the government hold of the region and in order to avoid the expansion of Uprisings from Dutch New Spain towards the colony in exchange we ask for a redrawing of the interior claims borders of the Colony of New Orleans and the northern Inca. We expect to hear if they agree on gaining control of the colony.

  • Croatian Archvoivodeship (Hrvatsko Nadvojvodstvo): Military turn. Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of the Archvoivodeship. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan and also Britannic expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. As the war for Hungary ends, some Croats and Hungarians are still unsatisfied as not all was achieved since the spoils of war had to be shared with the Romans. With the end of the war against Hispania, Croatia attempts to rebuild its economy using the control over Hercules' Pillars as a support. Trade routes are strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. The Brothers of the Raven continue spreading their influence in Croatia. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. The navy, under command of the Bajan and the First Admiral is developed due to the purchase of Britannic ships which are inspected and introduced into the Royal War Navy of Croatia or HBRM (Hrvatska Bajanska Ratna Mornarica). Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. Britannic assistance aids with the naval reform. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined.

  •  The Empire of Britannia: Many ships are modernized and replaced to keep the British Royal Navy a powerful force on the high seas. The Empire enacts a new series of reforms designed to better govern the numerous holdings of the Empire. The Empire, having had many years of isolation and inactivity on the global scale, rejoins the world stage. The first modernization steps are taken to streamline the military forces. The Crown Colonial Association also decides to also streamline the Borealian colonies. The former L'nu nation is integrated into New Dublin to form the Dominion of Arcadia. Other nation changes include economic reforms to restart the sluggish economy and a greater focus on military technology. The military is updated. A new model for economic production is released in homes of bolstering Britannia's economy, one of the leading economies in the world. The efforts come after many years of flagging production and scientific stagnation. Nowhere are these reforms more found than the colonies, where governors have been told to move away from a purely exploitive model to a more productive, economic model. The hope is by freeing up some of the labor force that was once used for exploitation, and use that force in a more efficient capacity, that profits and production would rise. Parliament clamors for continued updates to infrastructure and technology. The Britannic war of succession finally appears to be over with King James officially coronated at the Tower of London as Emperor James of Scotland, Ruler of Britannia and her holdings, Defender of the Faith, Most August. James will consider entertaining the Oldenbuger request in regards to officially ending the civil war and provide the former house with some position.

    • Dominion of Mexaca: The Prime Minister of the newly created Dominion of Mexaca, Cesar Tontaltec, starts the rebuilding process for the nation. Consulates and government buildings are set up in the new capital of Zapoteca (OTL Monterrey). The name reflects a link to the nation's past, while the city is meant to be a driving force in the nation's development. The political capital is located in Zapoteca, while the cultural capital remains in the old capital of Danibaan. Tontaltec meets with Britannian diplomats to streamline the process of setting up the new dominion. Basic infrastructure is restored, many citizens recruited to rebuild roads, bridges, and boats. Prime Minister Tontaltec believes that employing the masses of impoverished people will help the struggling economy. Basic goods also resume production - fruits, vegetables, flax, timber, fisheries, etc. While most of the population speaks a regional dialect of Spanish (with a strong Zapotec influence), English is introduced, and will slowly be built up as the main language of the nation. The new Flag of Mexaca is colored in red, white, and blue, to show ties to Britannia. It also displayes the icon of the Mexacan cross, a symbol popularly used by churches in the nation.
    • Protectorate of Pagantonia: The Protectorate of Pagantonia continues to try to suppress revolts by former Spaniards, but with minimal to no success.

Several new industries emerge as an increased demand for merchant marine ships rises.
    • Port Edmundburg: Expands by 1000 sq km south and east down the coast. The African colonists begin looking toward mining and other ventures to generate profit. A new newspaper, the first in a colony, is founded, called the Edmundburg Report. The slave trade begins to boom as exploitation of local minerals reaches a high amount. Slaves are sent to the New World to help boost production.
    • Crown Colony Ghana: More troops are raised from locals. Military and infrastructure are expanded. Most locals now see themselves as loyal British citizens and now fully vote and represent the colonies, Ghana becomes the first Brittannic colony to invoke near self rule, with little regulation from the homeland due to the mutual respect from the others. Any separatist movements are largely ignored.
    • Colony of Durbin: The colony of Durbin expands along the western coast of Australia from the former settlement that crashed there so long ago. With contact and resources flowing in from Britannia a minor boom is witnessed (colony expands 1000 sq km south along western coast).
    • Colony of the Yucatan: The colony of Yucatan experiences a slight economic boom from the recovering economy. Logging industries cut down valuable wood, which is sold for a through the the Imperial Sea.

  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue to expand their road network throughout the natio. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The Ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate.The Civil war ends with teh capitulation of Konigsberg and the signing of the treaty of Vilnus, which divided the territory between the reformed Republics of Prussia and Lithuania, and Poland. As a result, much of the old nobility is tried and convicted of high treason and have their lands, titles, and wealth confiscated, and they themselves sentenced to life in prison on an island-prison run by the PIC (not the best of places) or sentenced to work as labourers in Zlatobrezhie.

Slave owners are still upset, but the government reimburses them for their costs to appease them. Some emigrate to foreign nations to continue owning slaves. Roads begin to be put under construction to improve transportation and communication.
    • Uruguay Diplomacy: We accept the Incan Alliance.
  • Kingdom of Italy: An Italian noble family by the name of Deluca, who once cooperated with the Romans in ages past, has been chosen to be the royal family of Italy. The leading member of the family, Dario, has been coronated as the King of Italy. Most properties formerly belonging to the Spanish royal family is confiscated and granted to the Delucas for their own personal use, while some of it being divided into small pieces of land and given to the poor. Roman forces are garrisoned in Italy to help the new administration govern the land and enforce its new laws. Both the Imperial government and the Italian nobles focus on important cities like Naples, Rome, Florence, Ravenna, Ancona, Bari, and Palermo, realizing that building loyalty and holding those cities are the key to maintaining Italy. Roman military forces train and supply the local Italian forces, many of whom are made up of former Italian soldiers under the Spanish Empire and Italian rebels during the war. As such, integration within the military is difficult and will take some time. The Romans also help with rebuilding damaged military infrastructure and fortifications across Italy. Most of Tuscany, Latium, and Naples are under the administration of the Italian government, and those regions remain the core of Italian administration and power. Italy also starts building a small military, aimed to aid the larger, parent Roman navy when in times of need. Rome, and the other Italian cities also grow at a good rate. The Italian Crown asks the Crown of Castile for an alliance.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria: In 1761, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is abandoned after 1760 and the new capital is moved to Regensburg. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. King Frederick I, aged 40, and Queen Mary I, aged 26, and their councils continue to allow the training of new troops.

In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. In political news, the King and Queen continue to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils, the separation having occurred in 1668. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg, and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. The Deutsche Diet is created in 1736, and using her powers as Supreme Chancellor of the Curia Bavaria, places the seat of the Diet in Augsburg, where the historic Imperial Diet also sat. Many Bavarians and Austrians are fine with this placement, being far enough away from Bavarian influence which could corrupt the Diet. This new Diet will occupy supremacy over both the Curias Bavaria and Austria, and in essence will act as an Upper House to both regional Curias. Concerning Venezia, the King and Queen and the Deutsche Diet begin implementing policies similar to the policies King Leopold II adopted after the devastating war on Austria. Specifically, poorhouses are established all over Venezia, the streets are cleaned up, and taxes are lowered greatly as the Deutsche Diet pay for 40% of post-war expenses. In 1761, the Austrian revolt is essentially over, and much of the country is on the road to recovery. The Deutsche Diet is lifted from suspension, and by mid-year, most of the parliamentarians return to work. The King splits Brandenburg and Pomerania between himself and his wife, with himself becoming the Duke of Brandenburg and herself the Duchess of Pomerania. They ignore the fact that Sybille von Wittelsbach is still alive, and continues to press her claim on Brandenburg. Similarly, Franz-Hector I has strong claims on both Pomerania and on the crown of Bavaria through his imprisoned mother, who still remains alive. Now called a Princess, the former Queen Frances is locked up in Passau, along with her eldest daughter Joan and politician Felix Manzkari. The King fears that plots will arise aiming to free her and put her back on the throne, so he amplifies her bodyguard in order to watch over her more closely. In other news, King Frederick I keeps his promise to the Austrians and grants them their ancestral lands of Salzburg, Tyrol, and, as an extra gift for their alliance during the war, the Kingdom of Venezia. This proves to be a bit awkward of a transition, seeing as how Salzburg has been a Bavarian territory for approximately one century, while the Venezians and Tyrolians are almost entirely Italian. Many living in those regions raise qualms and concerns about living under Austrian sovereignty. However, The year ends on a relatively high note. Frederick's goal to elevate the position of Austria and depose Bavarian dominance have succeeded, however, unrest is still prevalent. Many still still Frances as the true Queen, and many more see it fit that Franz-Hector sits on the throne. The Duke-in-exile is very keen on these sentiments. From Neustadt, Franz-Hector and Sybille von Wittelsbach work on gathering pro-Bavarian forces in the region, hoping to reclaim the throne before the decade is over.

The small earthquake in London last year led to the breaking of a substantial amount of tea kettles. After pressure from the masses, the government agrees on creating the ‘Kettle Law’ which dictates that the government must pay for the replacement of all kettles broken during earthquakes.

Switzerland resists any attempt of influence by Lombardy, and threatens to align itself with France should such attempts continue.

The Hesperian rebellion has cut clean through the Dutch colony, and reached the border of Inca territory. The Inca have an easier time holding off the rebels than the Dutch.

Wot. France doesn't own any territory in that area, except by proxy.

  • Duchy of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure and its subjects expand their militaries. Galicia is again sent the message from 1759 (Mod response please ???)
  • Great Manchu Empire: With the sudden death of the previous Emperor, his eldest son-in-law Shinji Hiraku succeeded the throne and acquired the position of Emperor of the Manchu Empire. One of his first decisions was to establish a tax system to extract tax from the people but to also make sure that not too much pressure was put upon the peasants. The Emperor was keen on improving the agricultural status in the state, and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Trade with Korea, Imperium of Heaven and Japan proved beneficial as Manchu exported agricultural goods - especially lumber - to these states. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Meanwhile, a large army of roughly 300,000 men was raised to defend the state from any foreign invasion with the soldiers handed light matchlock muskets snaphaunces, and with pikes equipped to be used while charging upon the enemy. Therefore, importance was given to the production of firearms and gunpowder. The infantry was equipped with daggers and swords to be utilised in close combat against the enemy and horses as well as carts were used for the transportation of supplies. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. Many eunuchs who opposed this decision were put to death and eventually, the system of eunuchs was put down to prevent any power from opposing the Emperor. The Emperor ordered an increase in the teaching of subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and especially on developing new firearms and many firearms imported from Hispania were reverse-engineered to create identical copies. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and build up our navy. Major military reforms were brought and a paramilitary force referred to as the Manchu Guards is initiated. The paramilitary comprising of 50,000 guards swore allegiance to the Emperor and were ordered to put down any rebellion swiftly and without mercy. Independence was declared from the Empire of Japan. As this happened, an end to the forceful spread of Shinto was declared and all those that refused to reconvert from Shinto were executed. Peace ensued after defeating the Lanzhou rebels however occasionally, Manchu soldiers attack Jin borders cause why the hell not?. Meanwhile, with the recent crushing defeat of Tartary in the Japan - Tatar War; the Manchu looks anxiously upon the aggressive behaviour of Nippon! [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Shangjingkou: The state - being agriculturally strong - had numerous agricultural projects initiated and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state, and moreover these goods were exported to other Chinese states. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and built up our navy, eventually preparing a navy of 100 ships. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Kingdom of Shijiazuang: With the recent defeat of Hebei following its decision to aid Hispania, parts of the Kingdom of Hebei were officially integreted into the Empire of Manchuria. A paramilitary consisting of 10,000 Manchu was set up and members of the Royal family who were found were executed. The Emperor initiated the start of promotion of Japanese culture and Shinto in order to align the Kingdom of Hebei with Japan and to prevent any future rebellions. Meanwhile, schools were rapidly built and local merchants were made to engage in trade with the Japanese.  [Mil/Eco Turn]

    • Uighur Khanate: Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon introduced a series of reforms which included support of settlement, ordering the people to put a halt to their nomadic lifestyles. Moreover, Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon supported the construction of schools in order to spread western knowledge to the rural areas and to educate the people. Meanwhile, a paramilitary consisting of 500 men was set up to maintain law and order in the state, and a system of spies had been established to eradicate opposition to Manchu rule. The native Mongol people were treated generously, but all those that had fought against the Manchu in the war were sent to work in the fields although this did mean that the populace did not take part in cultivation and harvest of crops. To modify the trade route present in the state, Dorgon initiated the start of the road system to link the trade route and by now, up to 5000 men were recruited into the military. Crops were cultivated to feed the poor, and a trade system had been established to trade with the Turkic tribes. Islam is allowed to flourish in Uighur Khanate and no interference is made in the religious matters for fear of the Uighur people rebelling. A major mosque is also constructed to please the Uighur for helping to crush the uprising in Lanzhou. [Mil/Eco Turn]
  • Kingdom of Castile: The Kingdom of Castile sees a slight demographical as immigration from former Spanish colonies for the economic opportunity is on the rise. The Spanish population reaches about 10 million. The Empire officially begins a reform of the economic system looking to get away from reliance on gold and silver to bail the economy out of crisis from war debt, The bullion is instead geared toward giving the empire a competitive edge in being able to invest millions on a whim in order to drive up investments and production. However, in order to pay off debt, larger taxes are imposed on the wealthier class, with the current monarch starting to become less popular as the King of Castile, who already has been called "A bodacious fool" by the military commander. A meeting within the wealthier class is held later in the year, mostly with nobles, military commanders, etc., to impose a new law to renounce the current tax law imposed by the Castilian monarch. Meanwhile, the Castilian navy begins further development of its new larger classes of ships, churning out first rate flagships for various fleets, and more third rates, and fourth rates with the occasional second rate to augment the smaller patrol fleets the fifth and sixth rates begin to become more standard as light and medium frigates for singular voyages and patrols among other things. The Castilian attitudes on industrialism continue to change but the nobility seems rather unhappy about having to see more common people in major cities. With relatively no sources of power, the natural sources of power, and in some cases manpower are used for the increasing amount of textile mills among other things. The flocking of populations to Northern Spain continues with a mass increase of population in Madrid, Zaragoza, Pamplona, and various other minor cities and townships throughout the north. The Kingdom of Castile, seeing the loss of Italy as an emarssment, declines the alliance from Italy.

They still insist on flying the double-headed eagle along side the Bavarian flag. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in the northeastern forests. Diplomats are sent to the french colonies, establishing mutual trade relations and asking the 40th Parallel to be recognized as our border.

Work begins in Thabascho on a new fort in the colonial capital.
  •  The Empire of Britannia: Many ships are modernized and replaced to keep the British Royal Navy a powerful force on the high seas. The Empire enacts a new series of reforms designed to better govern the numerous holdings of the Empire. The Empire, having had many years of isolation and inactivity on the global scale, rejoins the world stage. The first modernization steps are taken to streamline the military forces. The Crown Colonial Association also decides to also streamline the Borealian colonies. The former L'nu nation is integrated into New Dublin to form the Dominion of Arcadia. Other nation changes include economic reforms to restart the sluggish economy and a greater focus on military technology. The military is updated. A new model for economic production is released in homes of bolstering Britannia's economy, one of the leading economies in the world. The efforts come after many years of flagging production and scientific stagnation. Nowhere are these reforms more found than the colonies, where governors have been told to move away from a purely exploitive model to a more productive, economic model. The hope is by freeing up some of the labor force that was once used for exploitation, and use that force in a more efficient capacity, that profits and production would rise.

    • Dominion of Mexaca: The Prime Minister of the newly created Dominion of Mexaca, Cesar Tontaltec, starts the rebuilding process for the nation. Consulates and government buildings are set up in the new capital of Zapoteca (OTL Monterrey). The name reflects a link to the nation's past, while the city is meant to be a driving force in the nation's development. The political capital is located in Zapoteca, while the cultural capital remains in the old capital of Danibaan. Tontaltec meets with Britannian diplomats to streamline the process of setting up the new dominion. Basic infrastructure is restored, many citizens recruited to rebuild roads, bridges, and boats. Prime Minister Tontaltec believes that employing the masses of impoverished people will help the struggling economy. Basic goods also resume production - fruits, vegetables, flax, timber, fisheries, etc. While most of the population speaks a regional dialect of Spanish (with a strong Zapotec influence), English is introduced, and will slowly be built up as the main language of the nation.

    • Protectorate of Pagantonia: The Protectorate of Pagantonia continues to try to suppress revolts by former Spaniards, but with minimal to no success. However, the advances by the rebels are fairly slow, protecting Britannian people and cities. However, with the sense that the revolts will worsen, Emperor James I orders a fort to be built around the capital to protect the people from the advancing rebellions.
    • Protectorate of Morocco: The Protectorate of Morocco is placed under military occupation since the War of the First Coalition, as mostly poorer lower class citizens come to make a fortune. A few farms spot up on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea mainly by debtors and families who are in need to repay the government. A popular shipbuilder, named George Smith, starts to sell older and worn out ships to merchants, particularly those who are desperate need for a vessel.
    • Colony of New Guerney: A flood of immigrants arrives at Port William on the island of New Guerney (OTL Hispaniola) as the colony continues to experience an unprecedented influx of colonists. Several new industries emerge as an increased demand for merchant marine ships rises.

Several new industries emerge as an increased demand for merchant marine ships rises.
    • Port Edmundburg: Expands by 1000 sq km south and east down the coast. The African colonists begin looking toward mining and other ventures to generate profit. A new newspaper, the first in a colony, is founded, called the Edmundburg Report. The slave trade begins to boom as exploitation of local minerals reaches a high amount. Slaves are sent to the New World to help boost production.
    • Crown Colony Ghana: More troops are raised from locals. Military and infrastructure are expanded. Most locals now see themselves as loyal British citizens and now fully vote and represent the colonies, Ghana becomes the first Brittannic colony to invoke near self rule, with little regulation from the homeland due to the mutual respect from the others. Any separatist movements are largely ignored.
    • Colony of Durbin: The colony of Durbin expands along the western coast of Australia from the former settlement that crashed there so long ago. With contact and resources flowing in from Britannia a minor boom is witnessed (colony expands 1000 sq km south along western coast).
    • Colony of the Yucatan: The colony of Yucatan experiences a slight economic boom from the recovering economy. Logging industries cut down valuable wood, which is sold for a through the the Imperial Sea.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria: In 1762, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is abandoned after 1760 and the new capital is moved to Regensburg. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. King Frederick I, aged 41, and Queen Mary I, aged 27, and their councils continue to allow the training of new troops. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Bavaria maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. In political news, the King and Queen continue to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils, the separation having occurred in 1668. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg, and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. The Deutsche Diet is created in 1736, and using her powers as Supreme Chancellor of the Curia Bavaria, places the seat of the Diet in Augsburg, where the historic Imperial Diet also sat. Many Bavarians and Austrians are fine with this placement, being far enough away from Bavarian influence which could corrupt the Diet. This new Diet will occupy supremacy over both the Curias Bavaria and Austria, and in essence will act as an Upper House to both regional Curias. Concerning Venezia, the King and Queen and the Deutsche Diet begin implementing policies similar to the policies King Leopold II adopted after the devastating war on Austria. Specifically, poorhouses are established all over Venezia, the streets are cleaned up, and taxes are lowered greatly as the Deutsche Diet pay for 40% of post-war expenses. In 1761, the Austrian revolt is essentially over, and much of the country is on the road to recovery. The Deutsche Diet is lifted from suspension, and by mid-year, most of the parliamentarians return to work. The King splits Brandenburg and Pomerania between himself and his wife, with himself becoming the Duke of Brandenburg and herself the Duchess of Pomerania. They ignore the fact that Sybille von Wittelsbach is still alive, and continues to press her claim on Brandenburg. Similarly, Franz-Hector I has strong claims on both Pomerania and on the crown of Bavaria through his imprisoned mother, who still remains alive. Now called a Princess, the former Queen Frances is locked up in Passau, along with her eldest daughter Joan and politician Felix Manzkari. The King fears that plots will arise aiming to free her and put her back on the throne, so he amplifies her bodyguard in order to watch over her more closely. The King remains wary of executing her, admitting privately that she is still a god-ordained Queen, and by killing her would angry the Bavarian population. Mary I shares her husbands sentiments and does not even ponder the execution of the Queen. However, Felix Manzkari is given much less leniency and many Austrians call for him to be killed for treason. In other news, the King and Queen work on reforming and rebuilding the military, and encourage mercantile business in the major cities. Franz-Hector and Sybille von Wittelsbach continues raising forces in Neustadt, and only becomes more pressing on his claim after an unidentified assailant attempts to assassinate him in mid-July.
    • CuriaBavariaFlagCuria Bavaria: The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. Parliament orders the Bavarian Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement the Bavarian Commands and Collegiate Writs into a codified, national law.
    • CuriaAustriaFlagCuria Austria: Work on the Parliamentary Palace in Vienna finishes. A number of 251 Austrians sit in the Austrian parliament. Most of the laws they pass concern continual relief for Vienna and various infrastructural reconstructions around Austria. The Curia Austria is popular in Vienna, with most welcoming a separate legislative body, while others see it as a Bavarian puppet. New roads continue being constructed.
    • Ddcoa2Deutsche Diet: The Deutsche Diet, also known as the German Parliament or German Diet, is established by the decree of Queen Frances I in 1736, and is given a charter that year.

In 1732, the investors of the RBSC put forth a combined total of 500,000 reichstalers in the construction of ships, training of private troops, and a military expedition into Negara Dipa next year. Conflict is expected to occur in coming decades.
    • NewBavariaFlagNew Bavaria: The colony of Nei Baiern continues to expand in population. Katharinas-Hafen, Franznacken, Bayreuth, Nei Regens, and Regenholz all expand by the end of the year. Houses and shops in each settlement continue being built. Jülichsberg and Wittlesberg both expand. Nei Baiern expands 2000 km. The militias and shops are developed. A small logging and fishing town is founded north of Wilhelmsbaum island, on the mainland. The settlement, mainly populated by Saxons, comes to be called Regenholz. News of the Austrian rebellion reaches Borealia. Many colonial Austrians are delighted at the notion of Austrian resurgence, and consistently poke fun at their Bavarian relatives, but ultimately, the situation is of little concern to them, as both groups live in relatively harmonious economic and social equilibrium.
    • NewSwabiaFlagNew Swabia: The colony of Neu Schwaben is established in 1750. The colony is situated in the humid, tropical regions of south-central Borealia, and is mostly composed of Spanish-speaking Hispanics, as well as Aztecan and Mayan settlers. In Europe, Bavarians are encouraged to settle in Nei Schwaben.
    • NewAustriaFlagNew Austria (Colony of Bavaria): See Post by Nathan.
    • PearlRiverFlagPearl River: The outpost of Perlefluss is established. A capital is expected to be constructed over the next few years. The capital of Pearl River is .
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus continue to expand their road network throughout the natio. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire celebrates its unprecedented victory in the war against Spain and the liberation of Rome. Roman forces come home to massive applause in the streets and both Emperor Andrew I and the Senate are acclaimed for their victory. Despite this victory, Andrew I is an old man and he is not expected to last much longer. With his son dead, one of his two grandsons is expected to succeed him as Emperor. The Empire does what it can to solidify its gain in Italy, and rebuilds roads, forts, and cities after the destructive war. Trade routes, long damages from the war yet mostly untouched within the eastern Mediterranean, are re-established in order to bring Roman trade power back up to its prime while also expanding Roman influence, as Rome is now one of the most powerful states in the world. Industry slowly starts to build up in the Empire, as people rush to the cities in Greece and Anatolia in order to get jobs at factories, while plants begin to be built along rivers in order to use them for their power. Relations with new nations such as Navarre, Aragon, and Mexaca are established in order to expand Roman influence and trade in the world. The military, already with high morale after the war with Spain, continues to train and improve itself, in case of any revolts or invasions by another power. After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. In order to expand upon their influence in Volayacor and the Hesperian continent, the Roman Empire aligns itself towards the Hesperian Confederation and starts to provide them with technical aid and weapons in exchange for political alliegance and trade goods.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The Ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate.The Civil war ends with teh capitulation of Konigsberg and the signing of the treaty of Vilnus, which divided the territory between the reformed Republics of Prussia and Lithuania, and Poland. As a result, much of the old nobility is tried and convicted of high treason and have their lands, titles, and wealth confiscated, and they themselves sentenced to life in prison on an island-prison run by the PIC (not the best of places) or sentenced to work as labourers in Zlatobrezhie. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. the Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish 
    • In the United Republic of Prussia and Danzig benefits from the de facto free trade with Croatia begin to show and grow its economy, GDP and average wages, as Prussia recovers from the war. Much of the wealth and lands of the nobility are now free game for the various merchants, who begin fierce competition. While the Union troops have not left by the end of the year, it will be seen as unusual if they are not gone by next year, and elections are not held for a new Bundestag.
    • The Belarus Military is improved as the Road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
  • In Aragon, the nation continues rebuilding after the great destruction caused by the war. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads, and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. The construction of new ships and the purchase of foreign weaponry continues. The government issues bonds to help stabilize the federal economy. Meanwhile, the Assembly seeks to formally establish relations with Bavaria and Westphalia-Netherlands independent of the Treaty of Toledo. A mutual defense pact is offered to Italy.
  • Tartary: The nation experiences a brief increase in Siberian expansion this year, led by the agricultural peoples of the Volga or the emigrant Turks, as well as a wave of Sakha and Ket expansion along the main rivers. Much of the northern half of the Yenisey and Lena rivers is already in Tatar hands, while the Ob is entirely under control of the Emperor. We continue exploring and expanding east. The military also begins to be modernised. This turn is dedicated to economic expansion.
  • Grand Duchy of Moscow: This turn in Moscow and all vassals is officially dedicated to economic. We begin recovering from recent wars and rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and defenses. Surprised by the sudden betrayal we faced by our neighbors, we put aside resources for new fortifications and an undated military. Ship production continues, as does trade along our many trade routes. The settlement at St. Patriksburg is expanded, with a large kremlin and port being constructed.

1763

The offer of Hamburg is accepted by Galician officials, provided Galician independence or policy is not affected.

This year is particularly brutal in southern Hesperia, and many die in clashes between the forces of the great powers, Osean rebels, and others merely caught in the fray.

A massive earthquake devastates Hungary and Slovakia.

When you say devastate, how devastating is it? I'm primarily interested in the amount of lives lost. -Sky

P.S. Hungary and Slovakia aren't really an earthquake area, they get few earthquakes and I did some research, they don't actually get above 5 Richter. So perhaps we could switch it to Ragusa since that was in fact an earthquake area? -SkyAgain

This is an OTL event, there was no description of the casualties involved, so I would assume the after effects of said earthquake are relatively minor. -MP

  • Duchy of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and its subjects expand their militaries. Hamburg appreciates the Galicians acceptance of the offer, and assures them their new sovereignty will not be impeded.
  • Great Manchu Empire: With the sudden death of the previous Emperor, his eldest son-in-law Shinji Hiraku succeeded the throne and acquired the position of Emperor of the Manchu Empire. One of his first decisions was to establish a tax system to extract tax from the people but to also make sure that not too much pressure was put upon the peasants. The Emperor was keen on improving the agricultural status in the state, and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Trade with Korea, Imperium of Heaven and Japan proved beneficial as Manchu exported agricultural goods - especially lumber - to these states. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Meanwhile, a large army of roughly 300,000 men was raised to defend the state from any foreign invasion with the soldiers handed light matchlock muskets snaphaunces, and with pikes equipped to be used while charging upon the enemy. Therefore, importance was given to the production of firearms and gunpowder. The infantry was equipped with daggers and swords to be utilised in close combat against the enemy and horses as well as carts were used for the transportation of supplies. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. Many eunuchs who opposed this decision were put to death and eventually, the system of eunuchs was put down to prevent any power from opposing the Emperor. The Emperor ordered an increase in the teaching of subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and especially on developing new firearms and many firearms imported from Hispania were reverse-engineered to create identical copies. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and build up our navy. Major military reforms were brought and a paramilitary force referred to as the Manchu Guards is initiated. The paramilitary comprising of 50,000 guards swore allegiance to the Emperor and were ordered to put down any rebellion swiftly and without mercy. Seeking to gain their rightful land, the Manchu declare war upon the Kingdoms of Shangjing and Hebei. Jin Empire is also attacked to topple the Chinese Coalition set up to oppose the Manchu. Seige weapons are sent and a blockade is imposed upon Shangjing and Hebei n nation is mobilized. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Shangjingkou: The state - being agriculturally strong - had numerous agricultural projects initiated and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state, and moreover these goods were exported to other Chinese states. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and built up our navy, eventually preparing a navy of 100 ships. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Kingdom of Shijiazuang: With the recent defeat of Hebei following its decision to aid Hispania, parts of the Kingdom of Hebei were officially integreted into the Empire of Manchuria. A paramilitary consisting of 10,000 Manchu was set up and members of the Royal family who were found were executed. The Emperor initiated the start of promotion of Japanese culture and Shinto in order to align the Kingdom of Hebei with Japan and to prevent any future rebellions. Meanwhile, schools were rapidly built and local merchants were made to engage in trade with the Japanese.  [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Kingdom of Lanzhou: Develops are made in Lanzhou with the construction of schools and spread of Manchu teachings. Much more modern weaponry was flowed into Lanzhou and a militia consisting of 5000 men was established to look after the state security. With a rebellion taking place, soldiers are sent from all over the Empire to defeat both the Lanzhou usurpers and Jin Empire. Meanwhile, more than 500,000 people who had supported the Xi'an Kingdom were impaled.. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Uighur Khanate: Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon introduced a series of reforms which included support of settlement, ordering the people to put a halt to their nomadic lifestyles. Moreover, Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon supported the construction of schools in order to spread western knowledge to the rural areas and to educate the people. Meanwhile, a paramilitary consisting of 500 men was set up to maintain law and order in the state, and a system of spies had been established to eradicate opposition to Manchu rule. The native Mongol people were treated generously, but all those that had fought against the Manchu in the war were sent to work in the fields although this did mean that the populace did not take part in cultivation and harvest of crops. To modify the trade route present in the state, Dorgon initiated the start of the road system to link the trade route and by now, up to 5000 men were recruited into the military. Crops were cultivated to feed the poor, and a trade system had been established to trade with the Turkic tribes. Islam is allowed to flourish in Uighur Khanate and no interference is made in the religious matters for fear of the Uighur people rebelling. A major mosque is also constructed to please the Uighur for helping to crush the uprising in Lanzhou. [Mil/Eco Turn]
  • '​'Kingdom of Castile: The Kingdom of Castile sees a slight demographical as immigration from former Spanish colonies for the economic opportunity is on the rise. The Spanish population reaches about 10.5 million, mostly due to the large influx of Spanish immigrants coming from South America The Empire officially begins a reform of the economic system looking to get away from reliance on gold and silver to bail the economy out of crisis from war debt, The bullion is instead geared toward giving the empire a competitive edge in being able to invest millions on a whim in order to drive up investments and production. However, in order to pay off debt, larger taxes are imposed on the wealthier class, with the current monarch starting to become less popular as the King of Castile, who already has been called "A bodacious fool" by the military commander. A meeting within the wealthier class is held later in the year, mostly with nobles, military commanders, etc., to impose a new law to renounce the current tax law imposed by the Castilian monarch. These meetings, however, establish nothing among the wealthier class, with the nobles demanding that the monarch must not tax them if their hard earned money. Instead, the Castilian Monarch decides to impose taxes on the lower class, instead of taxing the more important people of their hard earned money. Meanwhile, the Castilian navy begins further development of its new larger classes of ships, churning out first rate flagships for various fleets, and more third rates, and fourth rates with the occasional second rate to augment the smaller patrol fleets the fifth and sixth rates begin to become more standard as light and medium frigates for singular voyages and patrols among other things. The Castilian attitudes on industrialism continue to change but the nobility seems rather unhappy about having to see more common people in major cities. With relatively no sources of power, the natural sources of power, and in some cases manpower are used for the increasing amount of textile mills among other things. The flocking of populations to Northern Spain continues with a mass increase of population in Madrid, Zaragoza, Pamplona, and various other minor cities and townships throughout the north.
    • Yeah, Zaragoza belongs to Aragon and Pamplona to Navarre, Sat. You have been sending your people out of your nation, and into relatively hostile, semi-nationalistic ones. Methinks it will soon be time for a nice mini-genocide to break out in the streets of Pamplona and Bilbao...

  • I overlooked this, but no, you can't establish colonies.
  • Kingdom of Italy: An Italian noble family by the name of Deluca, who once cooperated with the Romans in ages past, has been chosen to be the royal family of Italy. The leading member of the family, Dario, has been coronated as the King of Italy. Most properties formerly belonging to the Spanish royal family is confiscated and granted to the Delucas for their own personal use, while some of it being divided into small pieces of land and given to the poor. Roman forces are garrisoned in Italy to help the new administration govern the land and enforce its new laws. Both the Imperial government and the Italian nobles focus on important cities like Naples, Rome, Florence, Ravenna, Ancona, Bari, and Palermo, realizing that building loyalty and holding those cities are the key to maintaining Italy. Roman military forces train and supply the local Italian forces, many of whom are made up of former Italian soldiers under the Spanish Empire and Italian rebels during the war. As such, integration within the military is difficult and will take some time. The Romans also help with rebuilding damaged military infrastructure and fortifications across Italy. Most of Tuscany, Latium, and Naples are under the administration of the Italian government, and those regions remain the core of Italian administration and power. Italy also starts building a small military, aimed to aid the larger, parent Roman navy when in times of need. Rome, and the other Italian cities also grow at a good rate.
  • NewAustriaFlagNew Austria (Colony of Bavaria): The economy and military improve. The mountains and valleys are now adorned with modern cities, with smaller villages sprawling out into the countryside. The university, along with many other major buildings of New Vienna, are completed in an ornate baroque style. The flag of New Austria is now required to be flown from every public building in the colony. A bronze statue of the late Queen Frances is constructed by the artist Johnn de la Franz, and placed in the town square of New Vienna. Businesses for manufacturing carpentry, textiles, and metalwork continue to grow, and these commodities are exported to the neighboring French and German colonies by land and sea. New cities are planned along the Amerigo River (OTL Columbia River) as far as Santiago, in order to bridge gaps in urbanization. The professional army is continually trained, while the forts are expanded and new artillery are manufactured. The first navy is completed, while more caravels and frigates are constructed back home. A synthesized Hispanic-German culture is emerging from the younger generation, and the young men now refer to themselves as Boralians. A novel by Martin de la Venn, published in 1760, first coins this term. However, there still remains a small enclave of pure Hispanics in small, northern villages. They still insist on flying the double-headed eagle along side the Bavarian flag. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in the northeastern forests. Diplomats are sent to the french colonies, establishing mutual trade relations and asking the 40th Parallel to be recognized as our border. In the north, the colony expands northeast 200 km, as far as Lake Maria (OTL Lac St. Anne). A trading post is established near this lake. An exploration team, headed by Colonel William de la Newburg, is sent northeast from this fort. Newberg's exploration team arrives within the domains of the Nehilaw Sachemate, and asks to establish mutual trade.

The population is stable at 500,000 people. Sends supplies to the Rhenish War.
      • Andorra: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up.
      • Africa: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy.

Trading outposts begin to be made in the border of the country to trade with Tuareg and inland tribes. Sends supplies to the Rhenish War.
      • French Mali: Due to vast piracy campaigns which France and Spain have contributed to has resulted in many pirate coves in the Bissagos Islands, and as a result a larger influx of Frenchmen arrived this year, though they still don't even make up 1% yet. Ports continue to expand appropriately and the region becomes a place worth note on many maps. Roads continue being built to outlying villages and plantations continue being built.
      • Artois: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure and navy are built up. The nation prepares an army for the conflict in Britannia. Sends supplies to the Rhenish War.

Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. The construction of new ships and the purchase of foreign weaponry continues. The government issues bonds to help stabilize the federal economy. Meanwhile, the Assembly seeks to formally establish relations with Bavaria, Navarre, and Westphalia-Netherlands independent of the Treaty of Toledo. A mutual defense pact is offered to Italy.
    • Navarre is happy to extend a warm diplomatic extension to Aragon.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The Ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate.The Civil war ends with teh capitulation of Konigsberg and the signing of the treaty of Vilnus, which divided the territory between the reformed Republics of Prussia and Lithuania, and Poland. As a result, much of the old nobility is tried and convicted of high treason and have their lands, titles, and wealth confiscated, and they themselves sentenced to life in prison on an island-prison run by the PIC (not the best of places) or sentenced to work as labourers in Zlatobrezhie. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. the Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish 
    • In the United Republic of Prussia and Danzig benefits from the de facto free trade with Croatia begin to show and grow its economy, GDP and average wages, as Prussia recovers from the war. Much of the wealth and lands of the nobility are now free game for the various merchants, who begin fierce competition. While the Union troops have not left by the end of the year, it will be seen as unusual if they are not gone by next year, and elections are not held for a new Bundestag.
    • The Belarus Military is improved as the Road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire celebrates its unprecedented victory in the war against Spain and the liberation of Rome. Roman forces come home to massive applause in the streets and both Emperor Andrew I and the Senate are acclaimed for their victory. Despite this victory, Andrew I is an old man and he is not expected to last much longer. With his son dead, one of his two grandsons is expected to succeed him as Emperor. The Empire does what it can to solidify its gain in Italy, and rebuilds roads, forts, and cities after the destructive war. Trade routes, long damages from the war yet mostly untouched within the eastern Mediterranean, are re-established in order to bring Roman trade power back up to its prime while also expanding Roman influence, as Rome is now one of the most powerful states in the world. Industry slowly starts to build up in the Empire, as people rush to the cities in Greece and Anatolia in order to get jobs at factories, while plants begin to be built along rivers in order to use them for their power. Relations with new nations such as Navarre, Aragon, and Mexaca are established in order to expand Roman influence and trade in the world. The military, already with high morale after the war with Spain, continues to train and improve itself, in case of any revolts or invasions by another power. After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. In order to expand upon their influence in Volayacor and the Hesperian continent, the Roman Empire aligns itself towards the Hesperian Confederation and starts to provide them with technical aid and weapons in exchange for political alliegance and trade goods.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Bavaria, Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach nine million by 1740. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. Scandinavia reaps the benefits of the war in Spain, dominating the world market. King Kristoffer III passes away. His son, Kristoffer IV, assumes the throne. Scandinavian colonies begins expanding into the remaining areas of Ottowa and Petun. Since many Ottowans have been part of the Scandinavian Empire for some time, there is not much resistance.

  • Kingdom of Castile: The Kingdom of Castile sees a slight demographical as immigration from former Spanish colonies for the economic opportunity is on the rise. The Spanish population reaches about 10.5 million, mostly due to the large influx of Spanish immigrants coming from South America The Empire officially begins a reform of the economic system looking to get away from reliance on gold and silver to bail the economy out of crisis from war debt, The bullion is instead geared toward giving the empire a competitive edge in being able to invest millions on a whim in order to drive up investments and production. However, in order to pay off debt, larger taxes are imposed on the wealthier class, with the current monarch starting to become less popular as the King of Castile, who already has been called "A bodacious fool" by the military commander. A meeting within the wealthier class is held later in the year, mostly with nobles, military commanders, etc., to impose a new law to renounce the current tax law imposed by the Castilian monarch. These meetings, however, establish nothing among the wealthier class, with the nobles demanding that the monarch must not tax them if their hard earned money. Instead, the Castilian Monarch decides to impose taxes on the lower class, instead of taxing the more important people of their hard earned money. Peasants, already poor from paying off the nations debt, are being taxed even more by the Monarch, resulting in unhappiness among the lower class. Talks to get the tax repealed are brought up, but only the success of organizing meeting and protests lat in the year. Meanwhile, the Castilian navy begins further development of its new larger classes of ships, churning out first rate flagships for various fleets, and more third rates, and fourth rates with the occasional second rate to augment the smaller patrol fleets the fifth and sixth rates begin to become more standard as light and medium frigates for singular voyages and patrols among other things. The Castilian attitudes on industrialism continue to change but the nobility seems rather unhappy about having to see more common people in major cities. With relatively no sources of power, the natural sources of power, and in some cases manpower are used for the increasing amount of textile mills among other things. The flocking of populations to Northern Spain continues with a mass increase of population in Madrid, Zaragoza, Pamplona, and various other minor cities and townships throughout the north.

The Deutsche Diet is created in 1736, and using her powers as Supreme Chancellor of the Curia Bavaria, places the seat of the Diet in Augsburg, where the historic Imperial Diet also sat. Many Bavarians and Austrians are fine with this placement, being far enough away from Bavarian influence which could corrupt the Diet. This new Diet will occupy supremacy over both the Curias Bavaria and Austria, and in essence will act as an Upper House to both regional Curias. Concerning Venezia, the King and Queen and the Deutsche Diet begin implementing policies similar to the policies King Leopold II adopted after the devastating war on Austria. Specifically, poorhouses are established all over Venezia, the streets are cleaned up, and taxes are lowered greatly as the Deutsche Diet pay for 40% of post-war expenses.

The King remains wary of executing her, admitting privately that she is still a god-ordained Queen, and by killing her would angry the Bavarian population. Mary I shares her husbands sentiments and does not even ponder the execution of the Queen. However, Felix Manzkari is given much less leniency and many Austrians call for him to be killed for treason. The King responds to the calls of the Austrians, as well as the advice of his advisors and peers, and has Felix Manzkari executed on June 9. He is tried for treason and easily convicted. His last words indicate that he is still proud to be an Austrians and holds nothing but love for his people.

After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. In order to expand upon their influence in Volayacor and the Hesperian continent, the Roman Empire aligns itself towards the Hesperian Confederation and starts to provide them with technical aid and weapons in exchange for political alliegance and trade goods. Italian merchants are integrated into the Roman economic system, learning their trade from experienced merchants and being able to draw upon considerable influence and financial backing.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The Ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate.The Civil war ends with teh capitulation of Konigsberg and the signing of the treaty of Vilnus, which divided the territory between the reformed Republics of Prussia and Lithuania, and Poland. As a result, much of the old nobility is tried and convicted of high treason and have their lands, titles, and wealth confiscated, and they themselves sentenced to life in prison on an island-prison run by the PIC (not the best of places) or sentenced to work as labourers in Zlatobrezhie. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of teh civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the number of rebellions in the future.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn.

Much of the wealth and lands of the nobility are now free game for the various merchants, who begin fierce competition. While the Union troops have not left by the end of the year, it will be seen as unusual if they are not gone by next year, and elections are not held for a new Bundestag.
    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarussia and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase.
  • In Aragon, the nation continues rebuilding after the great destruction caused by the war. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads, and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. The construction of new ships and the purchase of foreign weaponry continues. The government issues bonds to help stabilize the federal economy. Meanwhile, the Assembly seeks to formally establish relations with Bavaria and Westphalia-Netherlands independent of the Treaty of Toledo. A mutual defense pact is offered to Italy.
  •  The Empire of Britannia: Many ships are modernized and replaced to keep the British Royal Navy a powerful force on the high seas. The Empire enacts a new series of reforms designed to better govern the numerous holdings of the Empire. The Empire, having had many years of isolation and inactivity on the global scale, rejoins the world stage. The first modernization steps are taken to streamline the military forces. The Crown Colonial Association also decides to also streamline the Borealian colonies. The former L'nu nation is integrated into New Dublin to form the Dominion of Arcadia. Other nation changes include economic reforms to restart the sluggish economy and a greater focus on military technology. The military is updated. A new model for economic production is released in homes of bolstering Britannia's economy, one of the leading economies in the world. The efforts come after many years of flagging production and scientific stagnation. Nowhere are these reforms more found than the colonies, where governors have been told to move away from a purely exploitive model to a more productive, economic model. The hope is by freeing up some of the labor force that was once used for exploitation, and use that force in a more efficient capacity, that profits and production would rise. Parliament clamors for continued updates to infrastructure and technology. The Britannic war of succession finally appears to be over with King James officially coronated at the Tower of London as Emperor James of Scotland, Ruler of Britannia and her holdings, Defender of the Faith, Most August. James will consider entertaining the Oldenbuger request in regards to officially ending the civil war and provide the former house with some position. In the meantime, the former emperor flees to a safe haven in Hamburg. The Council of Kent is convened to end the succession crisis.

The name reflects a link to the nation's past, while the city is meant to be a driving force in the nation's development. The political capital is located in Zapoteca, while the cultural capital remains in the old capital of Danibaan. Tontaltec meets with Britannian diplomats to streamline the process of setting up the new dominion. Basic infrastructure is restored, many citizens recruited to rebuild roads, bridges, and boats. Prime Minister Tontaltec believes that employing the masses of impoverished people will help the struggling economy. Basic goods also resume production - fruits, vegetables, flax, timber, fisheries, etc. While most of the population speaks a regional dialect of Spanish (with a strong Zapotec influence), English is introduced, and will slowly be built up as the main language of the nation.

Come on people, annex those vassals, we ain’t kidding here.

After years of being under a union with the Habsburgs, the Dutch States-General, choose Johannes von Nassua-Orleans as their new leader, ending the personal union with Westphalia. The abrupt election is based on the idea that the Habsburg government has done little or nothing to stop or stay the continued decline of the Dutch Empire. Known commonly as the Batavian Revolt, the Dutch completely throw away the monarchic system and create the Dutch Republic. (Adjusted with help of Nk and for Batavian purposes)

I'm sorry, but what? From what Ms tells me, the Netherlands are the senior partner in the PU, AFAIK, so Westphalia and lombardy would be more under dutch influence more than vice versa. Of course, lombardy broke away with the death of the last king a couple turns back. Then there's the fact that the ruling house is Habsburg-Nassau-Orleans. And "continued decline"? Didn't the Netherlands ~quadruple their overseas territories a few turns ago?
Well, IATG, the issue is that the Dutch, albeit being the senior partner, still have to bow down to someone who isn't fully Dutch. The continued decline is affected by the expansion, mainly because it is overextension, the Dutch cannot hold all that territory, now they're sufering as they begin to lose it. Another thing is that Nk gave us the green light to do this event. -Sky
Thanks for the explanation, it confused me given what I was told about the explanation. -Guy
Why would the Dutch elect a new king in the middle of someone else's reign? They just got a new king, one who is Dutch. How has the Habsburgs done nothing, they heavily increased the size and influence of the Dutch Empire, so much so that Nk was asking me to stop. "Adjusted by Nk", he told me he was playing as the Guianas.
This makes even less sense now. I just started playing as the Netherlands. I have given away a third of my European territory to be less overextended. Despite this right away you split up my nation? Are you trying to make Napoleonic Netherlands or something? What's with the republican revolution so soon, and how come I don't get to play as it, and how come it splits up my nation?
EVENT POSTPONED UNTIL NK DEMANDS. 
  • Duchy of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure and its subjects expand their militaries. New Mecklenburg in Australia expands 750px. Hamburgian traders' profits begin to rise as trade with the new Moari citizens increases, as does the income of those Moari tribes who have accepted Hamburgian citizenship. It is hoped that in the coming years that that very rise, the respect and tolerance under Hamburgian rule, as well as the ever expansionist Scandinavian presence, would encourage more tribes to sign on to the treaty. Trade with the Hawaiian natives continues, and a treaty similar to that proposed to the Maori is written up to propose to the Hawaiians.
  • Great Manchu Empire: With the sudden death of the previous Emperor, his eldest son-in-law Shinji Hiraku succeeded the throne and acquired the position of Emperor of the Manchu Empire. One of his first decisions was to establish a tax system to extract tax from the people but to also make sure that not too much pressure was put upon the peasants. The Emperor was keen on improving the agricultural status in the state, and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Trade with Korea, Imperium of Heaven and Japan proved beneficial as Manchu exported agricultural goods - especially lumber - to these states. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Meanwhile, a large army of roughly 300,000 men was raised to defend the state from any foreign invasion with the soldiers handed light matchlock muskets snaphaunces, and with pikes equipped to be used while charging upon the enemy. Therefore, importance was given to the production of firearms and gunpowder. The infantry was equipped with daggers and swords to be utilised in close combat against the enemy and horses as well as carts were used for the transportation of supplies. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. Many eunuchs who opposed this decision were put to death and eventually, the system of eunuchs was put down to prevent any power from opposing the Emperor. The Emperor ordered an increase in the teaching of subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and especially on developing new firearms and many firearms imported from Hispania were reverse-engineered to create identical copies. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and build up our navy. Major military reforms were brought and a paramilitary force referred to as the Manchu Guards is initiated. The paramilitary comprising of 50,000 guards swore allegiance to the Emperor and were ordered to put down any rebellion swiftly and without mercy. Having toppled Hebei and Shangjing, the Manchu stand firm as the sole representatives of China! Threats by Japan for our persecution of the Shinto people are ignored. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Shangjingkou: The state - being agriculturally strong - had numerous agricultural projects initiated and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state, and moreover these goods were exported to other Chinese states. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and built up our navy, eventually preparing a navy of 100 ships. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Kingdom of Shijiazuang: With the recent defeat of Hebei following its decision to aid Hispania, parts of the Kingdom of Hebei were officially integreted into the Empire of Manchuria. A paramilitary consisting of 10,000 Manchu was set up and members of the Royal family who were found were executed. The Emperor initiated the start of promotion of Japanese culture and Shinto in order to align the Kingdom of Hebei with Japan and to prevent any future rebellions. Meanwhile, schools were rapidly built and local merchants were made to engage in trade with the Japanese. Lanzhou, Shijuazuang, Hebei and Shangjing are all integrated into a single province known as the Kingdom of Shijiazuang. Meanwhile, trade with the Japanese ports of Yantai and Qingdao comes to a complete halt.  [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Uighur Khanate: Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon introduced a series of reforms which included support of settlement, ordering the people to put a halt to their nomadic lifestyles. Moreover, Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon supported the construction of schools in order to spread western knowledge to the rural areas and to educate the people. Meanwhile, a paramilitary consisting of 500 men was set up to maintain law and order in the state, and a system of spies had been established to eradicate opposition to Manchu rule. The native Mongol people were treated generously, but all those that had fought against the Manchu in the war were sent to work in the fields although this did mean that the populace did not take part in cultivation and harvest of crops. To modify the trade route present in the state, Dorgon initiated the start of the road system to link the trade route and by now, up to 5000 men were recruited into the military. Crops were cultivated to feed the poor, and a trade system had been established to trade with the Turkic tribes. Islam is allowed to flourish in Uighur Khanate and no interference is made in the religious matters for fear of the Uighur people rebelling. A major mosque is also constructed to please the Uighur for helping to crush the uprising in Lanzhou. [Mil/Eco Turn]
  • Kingdom of Castile: The Kingdom of Castile sees a slight demographical as immigration from former Spanish colonies for the economic opportunity is on the rise. The Spanish population reaches about 10.5 million, mostly due to the large influx of Spanish immigrants coming from South America The Empire officially begins a reform of the economic system looking to get away from reliance on gold and silver to bail the economy out of crisis from war debt, The bullion is instead geared toward giving the empire a competitive edge in being able to invest millions on a whim in order to drive up investments and production. However, in order to pay off debt, larger taxes are imposed on the wealthier class, with the current monarch starting to become less popular as the King of Castile, who already has been called "A bodacious fool" by the military commander. A meeting within the wealthier class is held later in the year, mostly with nobles, military commanders, etc, to impose a new law to renounce the current tax law imposed by the Castilian monarch. These meetings, however, establish nothing among the wealthier class, with the nobles demanding that the monarch must not tax them if their hard earned money. Instead, the Castilian Monarch decides to impose taxes on the lower class, instead of taxing the more important people of their hard earned money. Peasants, already poor from paying off the nations debt, are being taxed even more by the Monarch, resulting in unhappiness among the lower class. Talks to get the tax repealed are brought up, but only the success of organizing meeting and protests late in the year. The monarch, ignore these pleas and continues to heavily tax the poor and leaves the military up to crush any protests that break out. The monarch sends a royal fiat to the peasantry, which translated into English says "The nobles have worked hard for what they have done, and what you have done, means nothing to Castile and her motherlands." Meanwhile, the Castilian navy begins further development of its new larger classes of ships, churning out first rate flagships for various fleets, and more third rates, and fourth rates with the occasional second rate to augment the smaller patrol fleets the fifth and sixth rates begin to become more standard as light and medium frigates for singular voyages and patrols among other things. The Castilian attitudes on industrialism continue to change but the nobility seems rather unhappy about having to see more common people in major cities. With relatively no sources of power, the natural sources of power, and in some cases manpower are used for the increasing amount of textile mills among other things. The flocking of populations to Northern Spain continues with a mass increase of population in Madrid, Zaragoza, Pamplona, and various other minor cities and townships throughout the north.
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue to expand their road network throughout the natio. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion.
  • Kingdom of Italy: An Italian noble family by the name of Deluca, who once co-operated with the Romans in ages past, has been chosen to be the royal family of Italy. The leading member of the family, Dario, has been coronated as the King of Italy. Most properties formerly belonging to the Spanish royal family is confiscated and granted to the Delucas for their own personal use, while some of it being divided into small pieces of land and given to the poor. Roman forces are garrisoned in Italy to help the new administration govern the land and enforce its new laws. Both the Imperial government and the Italian nobles focus on important cities like Naples, Rome, Florence, Ravenna, Ancona, Bari, and Palermo, realizing that building loyalty and holding those cities are the key to maintaining Italy. Roman military forces train and supply the local Italian forces, many of whom are made up of former Italian soldiers under the Spanish Empire and Italian rebels during the war. As such, integration within the military is difficult and will take some time. The Romans also help with rebuilding damaged military infrastructure and fortifications across Italy. Most of Tuscany, Latium, and Naples are under the administration of the Italian government, and those regions remain the core of Italian administration and power. Italy also starts building a small military, aimed to aid the larger, parent Roman navy when in times of need. Rome, and the other Italian cities also grow at a good rate.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Inca Empire: With the death of Apeac III, the nations of Tawatinsuyu and Vorlayacor fall into a Personal Union. The Andean Monarchy remains in control of Tawatinsuyu and her Vassals. The Population of Tawatinsuyu hits roughly 15 million.

The Inca also begin to invest in Vorlayacor, encouraging the movement of Inca people into the nation to aid in recovery from the last epidemic. Buenos Noches are built up, each having around 1000 people. Military training between the two nations begins, with a military of 220,000. Navy is also built up, with the navy expanding to accommodate more ships. The Buenos Noches Doctrine is passed in the Inca. With the ongoing rebellions in the Spanish Territory, the Inca increase their military presence in the the newly acquired territory. 8000 young men join the ranks of the Osea military this year. The government passes a new act, selling land cheap to the Spanish in remote parts of the empire. The hope is that this will led to the Spanish spreading across the empire. The act, which was passed last year, has further displaced Spanish settlers. Another act, selling land to native settlers in the newly acquired Spanish areas, is passed. With the Osea Rebellion spreading into the Inca territory, the Inca deploy 25,000 men to the Southern Border and warn the Osea military to control their men, otherwise actions will be taken against them. With arms coming in from both the Romans and Castilians, the Inca military begins to expand

A new model for economic production is released in homes of bolstering Britannia's economy, one of the leading economies in the world. The efforts come after many years of flagging production and scientific stagnation. Nowhere are these reforms more found than the colonies, where governors have been told to move away from a purely exploitive model to a more productive, economic model. The hope is by freeing up some of the labor force that was once used for exploitation, and use that force in a more efficient capacity, that profits and production would rise. Parliament clamors for continued updates to infrastructure and technology. The Britannic war of succession finally appears to be over with King James officially coronated at the Tower of London as Emperor James of Scotland, Ruler of Britannia and her holdings, Defender of the Faith, Most August.

  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Bavaria, Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach nine million by 1740. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. Scandinavia reaps the benefits of the war in Spain, dominating the world market.

Horiyoshi Yokohama IV takes over the empire, and he offers extra trade to France and the Netherlands. Kyoto remains the capital of the Empire. Imperial Shinto is spread more through the empire. The conquered regions are made into a vassal, Saharin. After the victory Horiyoshi gains more popularity, and his birthday becomes a national holiday. In the most important event of the year, Horiyoshi declares the Nihon Theocracy, a new government structure. The emperor is worshiped as the complete god, making him the Kami of Japan. With this new structure, immediately all practice of all religions but Imperial Shinto and Buddhism (for now) is made illegal and those who do not convert are killed. We warn the Manchu Empire to stop their aggression against the Chinese states. Buddhism is made illegal, too, this year. Shinto is now the only religion that is allowed.

  • Croatian Archvoivodeship (Hrvatsko Nadvojvodstvo): Economy turn. Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of the Archvoivodeship. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan and also Britannic expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. As the war for Hungary ends, some Croats and Hungarians are still unsatisfied as not all was achieved since the spoils of war had to be shared with the Romans. With the end of the war against Hispania, Croatia attempts to rebuild its economy using the control over Hercules' Pillars as a support. Trade routes are strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. The Brothers of the Raven continue spreading their influence in Croatia. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. The navy, under command of the Bajan and the First Admiral is developed due to the purchase of Britannic ships which are inspected and introduced into the Royal War Navy of Croatia or HBRM (Hrvatska Bajanska Ratna Mornarica). Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. Britannic assistance aids with the naval reform. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. The administrative reform continues. Following the comeback of the Nassau-Orleans on the Dutch throne, the Croat government offers to buy off its Lower Borealian territories in exchange for a sum of money and Dahomey. Poland is offered to buy parts of Croatia that are still settled by Poles, in exchange for a sum of money and improvement of relations.

  • County of Oldenburg: The Landtag passes legislation -later approved by the Regency Council- which approves th acquisition of lengths of road by private companies, or trusts. The idea is that the trusts will make improvements to their section of road, thereby encouraging more traffic to use it. The trusts would profit by setting up turnpikes to extract tolls from users of the roads. Seven so-called "Turnpike trusts" quickly form, claiming various stretches of vital but poorly-maintained road around the country. The OHG and the Jade Bank, both hoping to diversify their assets, are amongst the trustees. In other news, the Landtag puts the final touches on the bill that would have the Prince-Biahopric of Osnabruck incorporated into Oldenburg proper. According to the proposal, laws passed by the Landtag in Oldenburg would be automatically valid in Osnabruck, the latter would elect members to the Landtag (still on the same limited property-based suffrage as in Oldenburg, don't worry), the Osnabruck military would be incorporated into the command structure of the Oldenburg military, but still remain internally independent. The Prince-Bishop would also maintain certain powers in the former Prince-Bishopric, and lands owned by the Church would remain so (which, in the case of Osnabruck, would mean that at least 50% of land would remain in the hands of the Church). The bill is passed by the Landtag late in the year, and the Regency Council will review it next year. Neu Norderney expands 1000px North up the Labrador coast.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria: In 1765, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is abandoned after 1760 and the new capital is moved to Regensburg. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. King Frederick I, aged 44, and Queen Mary I, aged 30, and their councils continue to allow the training of new troops. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Bavaria maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. In political news, the King and Queen continue to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils, the separation having occurred in 1668. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg, and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. The Deutsche Diet is created in 1736, and using her powers as Supreme Chancellor of the Curia Bavaria, places the seat of the Diet in Augsburg, where the historic Imperial Diet also sat. Many Bavarians and Austrians are fine with this placement, being far enough away from Bavarian influence which could corrupt the Diet. This new Diet will occupy supremacy over both the Curias Bavaria and Austria, and in essence will act as an Upper House to both regional Curias. Concerning Venezia, the King and Queen and the Deutsche Diet begin implementing policies similar to the policies King Leopold II adopted after the devastating war on Austria. Specifically, poorhouses are established all over Venezia, the streets are cleaned up, and taxes are lowered greatly as the Deutsche Diet pay for 40% of post-war expenses. In 1761, the Austrian revolt is essentially over, and much of the country is on the road to recovery. The Deutsche Diet is lifted from suspension, and by mid-year, most of the parliamentarians return to work. The King splits Brandenburg and Pomerania between himself and his wife, with himself becoming the Duke of Brandenburg and herself the Duchess of Pomerania. They ignore the fact that Sybille von Wittelsbach is still alive, and continues to press her claim on Brandenburg. Similarly, Franz-Hector I has strong claims on both Pomerania and on the crown of Bavaria through his imprisoned mother, who still remains alive. Now called a Princess, the former Queen Frances is locked up in Passau, along with her eldest daughter Joan and politician Felix Manzkari. The King fears that plots will arise aiming to free her and put her back on the throne, so he amplifies her bodyguard in order to watch over her more closely. The King remains wary of executing her, admitting privately that she is still a god-ordained Queen, and by killing her would angry the Bavarian population. Mary I shares her husbands sentiments and does not even ponder the execution of the Queen. However, Felix Manzkari is given much less leniency and many Austrians call for him to be killed for treason. In other news, the King and Queen work on reforming and rebuilding the military, and encourage mercantile business in the major cities. Franz-Hector and Sybille von Wittelsbach continues raising forces in Neustadt, and hope to invade Bavaria after 1765. Their hopes come to fruition that year, when Franz-Hector I raises a force of 6,000 Hamburgian forces from in and around Neustadt, while the Duchess-in-Exile Sybille tours around Lübeck and raises an extra 3,500. They cross over into Pomerania on June 16, and news reaches the King and Queen the following week. King Frederick knows that the Bavarian military is still very much in tatters after the war, but hopes for the best. He raises a personal militia of only 2,000 men, and decides to issue a series of drafts and conscriptions over the months of June and July. However, many former soldiers and miltiamen simply ignore the drafts and stick with civilian life. Only 3,000 former men re-enter the army and navy. With only half as many men as Franz-Hector, Frederick embarks towards Pomerania with low hopes. Mary I stays behind in Regensburg and continues reforming the administration and military. By September, the only major siege of Pomerania is the short siege of Stettin, which ends after only six days. The rest of Pomerania quickly swears fealty to their former Wittelsbach Duke. King Frederick sets up camp in Berlin and focuses on training troops there, not expecting to engage in battle until the next year. Unfortunately for him, he cannot raise many troops in Berlin, while at the same time a number of 1,000 men flock to Franz-Hector. The year ends on another tiresome premise. War has once returned to Bavaria, albeit not nearly as destructive or cataclysmic as Frederick's Invasion. Many scholars and nobles in Bavaria expect Franz-Hector to defeat Frederick sometime by next year, and do not foresee conflict spreading any farther south than Berlin.

    • Pommernflagpm3Duchy of Pomerania: Troops authorized by Duchess Mary II, aged 30, continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. A university, with slight Catholic foundations, is founded in Stettin, which is named the Lady Mary University, after the late Duchess Mary. Queen Mary I is declared Duchess Mary II of Pomerania, effectively displacing the pretender Franz-Hector I, who is in Neustadt. However, Franz-Hector invades Pomerania in 1765 and easily re-establishes himself as Duke of Pomerania.
    • RBCcoaRoyal Bavarian Stock Company: The RBSC, founded in the late fifteenth century, is finally formalized and given a royal charter by King Leopold II in 1662. The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In exploratory news, while much of Bavaria is immersed in Civil War, the RBSC decides to fund expeditions into Indonesia, particularly around Borneo and the tribelands of Negara Dipa. In 1732, the investors of the RBSC put forth a combined total of 500,000 reichstalers in the construction of ships, training of private troops, and a military expedition into Negara Dipa next year. Conflict is expected to occur in coming decades.
    • NewBavariaFlagNew Bavaria: The colony of Nei Baiern continues to expand in population. Katharinas-Hafen, Franznacken, Bayreuth, Nei Regens, and Regenholz all expand by the end of the year. Houses and shops in each settlement continue being built. Jülichsberg and Wittlesberg both expand. Nei Baiern expands 2000 km. The militias and shops are developed. A small logging and fishing town is founded north of Wilhelmsbaum island, on the mainland. The settlement, mainly populated by Saxons, comes to be called Regenholz. News of the Austrian rebellion reaches Borealia. Many colonial Austrians are delighted at the notion of Austrian resurgence, and consistently poke fun at their Bavarian relatives, but ultimately, the situation is of little concern to them, as both groups live in relatively harmonious economic and social equilibrium.
    • NewSwabiaFlagNew Swabia: The colony of Neu Schwaben is established in 1750. The colony is situated in the humid, tropical regions of south-central Borealia, and is mostly composed of Spanish-speaking Hispanics, as well as Aztecan and Mayan settlers. In Europe, Bavarians are encouraged to settle in Nei Schwaben.

  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The Ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate.The Civil war ends with teh capitulation of Konigsberg and the signing of the treaty of Vilnus, which divided the territory between the reformed Republics of Prussia and Lithuania, and Poland. As a result, much of the old nobility is tried and convicted of high treason and have their lands, titles, and wealth confiscated, and they themselves sentenced to life in prison on an island-prison run by the PIC (not the best of places) or sentenced to work as labourers in Zlatobrezhie. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the number of rebellions in the future.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. the Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish 
    • In the United Republic of Prussia and Danzig benefits from the de facto free trade with Croatia begin to show and grow its economy, GDP and average wages, as Prussia recovers from the war. Much of the wealth and lands of the nobility are now free game for the various merchants, who begin fierce competition. While the Union troops have not left by the end of the year, it will be seen as unusual if they are not gone by next year, and elections are not held for a new Bundestag.
    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarussia and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase.
  • Empire of Lanka: Emperor Ranjit I dies silently in his sleep. As the death was somewhat premature, his eldest brother Senerat I inherits the throne and becomes emperor. Senerat is a decent diplomat and administrator, but he is less educated with military matters. The government mostly focuses on economic expansion, infrastructural expansion, and westernization. Dutch architecture and infrastructure continue to influence Lanka making the empire more westernized. Most of the army is equipped with Dutch/western weapons and many cannons given to them over the years. Most of the army also have Dutch military training, to learn Dutch/western tactics, and the troop numbers continues to go up. The most recent census taken in 1739 accounts for 1,059,604 Lankan citizens (on the island and abroad). Trade posts continue to be built throughout the empire. The mostly complete, new capital of Waardige continues to be built (Turn Ninety-Seven of Many).The Kust Weg continues to be used; mostly for military reasons. Dutch reformist continues to be sampled by a small percentage of the population with some converting, while others practice parts of both. Ranjit's previous education reform continues to be enforced. With new income from Madras, Senerat continues to update the navy with warships from the Dutch. There continue to be small incidences and disputes erupting throughout the empire between religious and cultural minorities. Relations continue to be improved with the nations of Urdustan, Ayutthaya, the Suri Empire, and Japan. Senerat continues Ranjit's program of inviting Dutch scholars to the nation. Seeing that some Lankan laws have become obsolete and that some Dutch laws just don't benefit Lanka, Senerat consolidates Lankan, Dutch and some European laws into a better, more updated law code. To improve the Lankan economy, Senerat offers trade agreements to the following nations: Japan, France (Philippines and African Colonies), Demak, Ethiopia, and Hamburg (Asian Colonies).
    • Lankastad of Madras: ​With Madras being ceded to Lanka in the recent war, it is managed as a separate entity as other parts of the empire. The government has tried to not interfere with the trade city, although a lot of the Lankan military has been sent there. The city is less profitable than under Spanish Rule, but it continues to be a major center for trading in Asia. The population has also decreased from under Spanish rule (from 120,000 to around 75,000), but an official census hasn't been taken yet.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire celebrates its unprecedented victory in the war against Spain and the liberation of Rome. Roman forces come home to massive applause in the streets and both Emperor Andrew I and the Senate are acclaimed for their victory. Despite this victory, Andrew I is an old man and he is not expected to last much longer. With his son dead, one of his two grandsons is expected to succeed him as Emperor. The Empire does what it can to solidify its gain in Italy, and rebuilds roads, forts, and cities after the destructive war. Trade routes, long damages from the war yet mostly untouched within the eastern Mediterranean, are re-established in order to bring Roman trade power back up to its prime while also expanding Roman influence, as Rome is now one of the most powerful states in the world. Industry slowly starts to build up in the Empire, as people rush to the cities in Greece and Anatolia in order to get jobs at factories, while plants begin to be built along rivers in order to use them for their power. Relations with new nations such as Navarre, Aragon and Mexaca are established in order to expand Roman influence and trade in the world. The military, already with high morale after the war with Spain, continues to train and improve itself, in case of any revolts or invasions by another power. After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. In order to expand upon their influence in Volayacor and the Hesperian continent, the Roman Empire aligns itself towards the Hesperian Confederation and starts to provide them with technical aid and weapons in exchange for political alliegance and trade goods. Italian merchants are integrated into the Roman economic system, learning their trade from experienced merchants and being able to draw upon considerable influence and financial backing.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • France: Military, navy and economy are built up. The colony continues expanding and growing by 100 sq km among both colonies into the Galapago Islands called Illes d'Neptune. The colonies continue growing as expected. The colony of Nouvelle Rouen continues to expand inland throughout the land corridor given by Cahokie by 9800 sq km. Mining continues in the colony of Nouvelle Orleans. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The king is outraged, for such freedom given to the Rhenish kingdom so much betrayal! In an act of sheer punishment he declares an all-out war against the rebels and the nobles he dispatches a coalition army of around 400,000 troops (from all around the empire) to quell the uprising. in the now called French Borealia, the displacement of small Spanish settlements begin, offering a free ride for them to return back into Castile, and exchange or sell their possessions in the colonies or swear allegiance to the King. The French King warns, that if the HRE gets involved with the Rhenish rebels there will be a blockade to Hamburg's ships and Dutch if needed and an eventual war declaration, We ask them to stay away from the issue in order to not to bring old resentments and avoid further conflicts. France assures the Swiss nation that any intrusion in its territory will prompt the French forces in order to aid the Swiss government, we also prompt Bavaria to join a dual side treaty to protect Switzerland and avoid any of the members of the treaty from influencing it, Italy and Lombardy are invited as well if they wish to do so.
        • Kingdom of Rhenanie: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy.
        • Kingdom of Lower Burgundy: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy.
        • Sardinia-Corsica: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy.

The population is stable at 500,000 people.
        • Andorra: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up.
        • Africa: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The African language has become the de facto leading language surpassing every other (outside of French) being spoken by the 2.3 million people living in the country as either native or second language. Vandalian, however, dominates area of Tripolitania's coast with a population of around 5000 speakers in the region. French is still the main language officially. Trading outposts begin to be made in the border of the country to trade with Tuareg and inland tribes. Sends supplies to the Rhenish War.
        • French Mali: Due to vast piracy campaigns which France and Spain have contributed to has resulted in many pirate coves in the Bissagos Islands, and as a result a larger influx of Frenchmen arrived this year, though they still don't even make up 1% yet. Ports continue to expand appropriately and the region becomes a place worth note on many maps. Roads continue being built to outlying villages and plantations continue being built.
        • Artois: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure and navy are built up. The nation prepares an army for the conflict in Britannia.

        • Madasikara: Military, navy, infrastructure and economy are built up.
  • In Aragon, the nation continues rebuilding after the great destruction caused by the war. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads, and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. The construction of new ships and the purchase of foreign weaponry continues. The government issues bonds to help stabilize the federal economy. Meanwhile, the Assembly seeks to formally establish relations with Bavaria and Westphalia-Netherlands independent of the Treaty of Toledo. A mutual defense pact is offered to Italy.

  • Kingdom of Castile: The Kingdom of Castile sees a slight demographical as immigration from former Spanish colonies for the economic opportunity is on the rise. The Spanish population reaches about 10.5 million, mostly due to the large influx of Spanish immigrants coming from South America The Empire officially begins a reform of the economic system looking to get away from reliance on gold and silver to bail the economy out of crisis from war debt, The bullion is instead geared toward giving the empire a competitive edge in being able to invest millions on a whim in order to drive up investments and production. However, in order to pay off debt, larger taxes are imposed on the wealthier class, with the current monarch starting to become less popular as the King of Castile, who already has been called "A bodacious fool" by the military commander. A meeting within the wealthier class is held later in the year, mostly with nobles, military commanders, etc., to impose a new law to renounce the current tax law imposed by the Castilian monarch. These meetings, however, establish nothing among the wealthier class, with the nobles demanding that the monarch must not tax them if their hard earned money. Instead, the Castilian Monarch decides to impose taxes on the lower class, instead of taxing the more important people of their hard earned money. Peasants, already poor from paying off the nations debt, are being taxed even more by the Monarch, resulting in unhappiness among the lower class. Talks to get the tax repealed are brought up, but only the success of organizing meeting and protests late in the year. The monarch, ignore these pleas and continues to heavily tax the poor and leaves the military up to crush any protests that break out. The monarch sends a royal fiat to the peasantry, which translated into English says "The nobles have worked hard for what they have done, and what you have done, means nothing to Castile and her motherlands." Large protests break out in Madrid, with the intent of getting the Castilian Monarch to lower the taxes on the peasantry of Castile. Seeing these revolts, The Castilian Monarch repeals the law, with him deciding to tax the nobles (again). The nobles again, are enraged. So, a noble named Phillip IV of Toledo, now enraged after the many years of failure to sustain and properly control Castile, secretly an long with the other nobles slowly organize a peasant army to overthrow the current monarch. Meanwhile, the Castilian navy begins further development of its new larger classes of ships, churning out first rate flagships for various fleets, and more third rates, and fourth rates with the occasional second rate to augment the smaller patrol fleets the fifth and sixth rates begin to become more standard as light and medium frigates for singular voyages and patrols among other things. The Castilian attitudes on industrialism continue to change but the nobility seems rather unhappy about having to see more common people in major cities. With relatively no sources of power, the natural sources of power, and in some cases manpower are used for the increasing amount of textile mills among other things. The flocking of populations to Northern Spain continues with a mass increase of population in Madrid, Zaragoza, Pamplona, and various other minor cities and townships throughout the north.

  • Duchy of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and it subjects expand their economies. New Mecklenburg in Australia expands by 750px. In June, the Hanoverian Parliament approves a resolution for the establishment of a New Rugian Legislature, seated in Sophiastadt, to represent both the Hamburgian settlers and the Moari citizens. Word reaches New Rugia in late November and construction on a dedicated building begins to be planned. In the meantime, the representatives meet in one of the dining halls, and Hone Heke, chief of one of the tribes that opted for Hamburg citizenship, is unanimously elected speaker. In one of his first acts, he condemns Scandinavia's expansion into Maori land on the north island, as well as the foreign severing of inter-tribe agreements and deals. Hone Heke then states, with the unanimous support of the New Rugian Legislature, "the insults of the Scandinavians against the Maori and their allies only aim to hide their barbaric acts against those they wish to subjugate. Their contempt for the Maori people of the north island is as clear as the sea in which we fish, nothing can hide their lies or intentions."
  • Hone Heke was a real person (and from the north island, no less). Would you mind choosing a new name for this guy? Aside from that, I am interested in seeing where this goes.
    • Yeah, I'm aware that Hone Heke was a real person, and from the north island, but I was unable to find Chiefs from the South Island, so I pulled out one of the more well-known Chiefs, despite being from the wrong island :P.
    • That's when I just make use of the Behind the Name Randon Name Generator. It's really useful, LOL
  • Great Manchu Empire: With the sudden death of the previous Emperor, his eldest son-in-law Shinji Hiraku succeeded the throne and acquired the position of Emperor of the Manchu Empire. One of his first decisions was to establish a tax system to extract tax from the people but to also make sure that not too much pressure was put upon the peasants. The Emperor was keen on improving the agricultural status in the state, and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Trade with Korea, Imperium of Heaven and Japan proved beneficial as Manchu exported agricultural goods - especially lumber - to these states. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Meanwhile, a large army of roughly 300,000 men was raised to defend the state from any foreign invasion with the soldiers handed light matchlock muskets snaphaunces, and with pikes equipped to be used while charging upon the enemy. Therefore, importance was given to the production of firearms and gunpowder. The infantry was equipped with daggers and swords to be utilised in close combat against the enemy and horses as well as carts were used for the transportation of supplies. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. Many eunuchs who opposed this decision were put to death and eventually, the system of eunuchs was put down to prevent any power from opposing the Emperor. The Emperor ordered an increase in the teaching of subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and especially on developing new firearms and many firearms imported from Hispania were reverse-engineered to create identical copies. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and build up our navy. Major military reforms were brought and a paramilitary force referred to as the Manchu Guards is initiated. The paramilitary comprising of 50,000 guards swore allegiance to the Emperor and were ordered to put down any rebellion swiftly and without mercy. Having toppled Hebei and Shangjing, the Manchu stand firm as the sole representatives of China! Threats by Japan for our persecution of the Shinto people are ignored. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Shangjingkou: The state - being agriculturally strong - had numerous agricultural projects initiated and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state, and moreover these goods were exported to other Chinese states. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and built up our navy, eventually preparing a navy of 100 ships. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Kingdom of Shijiazuang: With the recent defeat of Hebei following its decision to aid Hispania, parts of the Kingdom of Hebei were officially integreted into the Empire of Manchuria. A paramilitary consisting of 10,000 Manchu was set up and members of the Royal family who were found were executed. The Emperor initiated the start of promotion of Japanese culture and Shinto in order to align the Kingdom of Hebei with Japan and to prevent any future rebellions. Meanwhile, schools were rapidly built and local merchants were made to engage in trade with the Japanese. Lanzhou, Shijuazuang, Hebei and Shangjing are all integrated into a single province known as the Kingdom of Shijiazuang. Meanwhile, trade with the Japanese ports of Yantai and Qingdao comes to a complete halt.  [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Uighur Khanate: Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon introduced a series of reforms which included support of settlement, ordering the people to put a halt to their nomadic lifestyles. Moreover, Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon supported the construction of schools in order to spread western knowledge to the rural areas and to educate the people. Meanwhile, a paramilitary consisting of 500 men was set up to maintain law and order in the state, and a system of spies had been established to eradicate opposition to Manchu rule. The native Mongol people were treated generously, but all those that had fought against the Manchu in the war were sent to work in the fields although this did mean that the populace did not take part in cultivation and harvest of crops. To modify the trade route present in the state, Dorgon initiated the start of the road system to link the trade route and by now, up to 5000 men were recruited into the military. Crops were cultivated to feed the poor, and a trade system had been established to trade with the Turkic tribes. Islam is allowed to flourish in Uighur Khanate and no interference is made in the religious matters for fear of the Uighur people rebelling. A major mosque is also constructed to please the Uighur for helping to crush the uprising in Lanzhou. [Mil/Eco Turn]
  • France: Military, navy and economy are built up. The colony continues expanding and growing by 100 sq km among both colonies into the Galapago Islands called Illes d'Neptune. The colonies continue growing as expected. The colony of Nouvelle Rouen continues to expand inland throughout the land corridor given by Cahokie by 9800 sq km. Mining continues in the colony of Nouvelle Orleans. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The king is outraged, for such freedom given to the Rhenish kingdom so much betrayal! In an act of sheer punishment he declares an all-out war against the rebels and the nobles he dispatches a coalition army of around 400,000 troops (from all around the empire) to quell the uprising. in the now called French Borealia, the displacement of small Spanish settlements begin, offering a free ride for them to return back into Castile, and exchange or sell their possessions in the colonies or swear allegiance to the King. The French King warns, that if the HRE gets involved with the Rhenish rebels there will be a blockade to Hamburg's ships and Dutch if needed and an eventual war declaration, We ask them to stay away from the issue in order to not to bring old resentments and avoid further conflicts. France assures the Swiss nation that any intrusion in its territory will prompt the French forces in order to aid the Swiss government, we also prompt Bavaria to join a dual side treaty to protect Switzerland and avoid any of the members of the treaty from influencing it, Italy and Lombardy are invited as well if they wish to do so. a few explorers settle the area of OTL Adelaid after their ship wrecks in the southern Coast of OTL Australia, they name the Outpost Trinity, the Wreckage soon becomes a local trading spot between the french traders and local tribes after the explorers are rescued later in the year.
      • Kingdom of Rhenanie: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy.
      • Kingdom of Lower Burgundy: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy.
      • Sardinia-Corsica: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The Sardinian language has lowered its usage to only 10% of the population of Sardinia (roughly 50,000 people) with the speaking African (43%) and French (38%) or Vandalian (9% African Rhenish German dialect) and with the vast majority being able to speak both African and French (that is more or less 85% of the nation's population). The population is stable at 500,000 people.
      • Andorra: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up.
      • Africa: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The African language has become the de facto leading language surpassing every other (outside of French) being spoken by the 2.3 million people living in the country as either native or second language. Vandalian, however, dominates area of Tripolitania's coast with a population of around 5000 speakers in the region. French is still the main language officially. Trading outposts begin to be made in the border of the country to trade with Tuareg and inland tribes. Sends supplies to the Rhenish War.
      • French Mali: Due to vast piracy campaigns which France and Spain have contributed to has resulted in many pirate coves in the Bissagos Islands, and as a result a larger influx of Frenchmen arrived this year, though they still don't even make up 1% yet. Ports continue to expand appropriately and the region becomes a place worth note on many maps. Roads continue being built to outlying villages and plantations continue being built.
      • Artois: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure and navy are built up. The nation prepares an army for the conflict in Britannia.
      • Free City of Danzig: The military, economy, infrastructure, and navy are built up, Danzig Asks for an alliance with the current prussian and Polish government

      • Madasikara: Military, navy, infrastructure and economy are built up.
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue to expand their road network throughout the natio. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion.
  • NewAustriaFlagNew Austria (Colony of Bavaria): The economy and military improve. Cities in the mountains and valleys continue to modernize their industries, and the expansion of these businesses contribute to the growth of villages along the Amerigo River (OTL Columbia River) as far as Late Maria (OTL Lac St. Anne). Businesses for manufacturing carpentry, textiles, and metalwork continue to grow, and these commodities are exported to the neighboring French and German colonies by land and sea. The professional army is continually trained, while the forts are expanded and new artillery are manufactured. More caravels and frigates are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands. The university of New Vienna is beginning to generate a new generation of intellectuals and engineers. The first newspapers in Boralia are printed at New Vienna, and are distributed thorughout the colony. A synthesized Hispanic-German culture is emerging from the younger generation, and the young men now refer to themselves as Boralians. A novel by Martin de la Venn, published in 1760, first coins this term. However, there still remains a small enclave of pure Hispanics in small, northern villages. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in the northeastern forests. The city of New Munich is established near the Saripente River (OTL Snake River), and very quickly expands as a center of commerce. Buffalo products become extremely popular throughout the colony, thanks to the efforts of Johann Baptist de Fages. His village of Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City) is incorporated into the colony. In order to take control of the buffalo market, New Austria claims all the land west of the Eastern Mountain (OTL Bitterroot Mountains) and north of the 40th Parallel. A series of forts are constructed along the Eastern Mountains, and a network of highways are built to connect these back to New Munich. Smaller processing companies begin hunting bison and selling them abroad. We offer to sell bison products to the Nehilaw Sachemate and French Boralia.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Empire of Urdustan (اردو کی زمین کی سلطنت/Urdū kī bhūmi kā sāmrājya): The rising Emperor, شاہ الیاس پیدائش نو کے شہنشاہ چیمپیئن (Śāha iliyāsa punarjanma kē samrāṭa caimpiyana) takes the throne after several decades of stagnation, bureaucracy, and inefficient dual rule from an ineffective council and weak emperors. He, after years of preparation, mainly through his own study due to the lack of attention given to him to groom him as future Emperor, decides that he wishes to return the Empire of Urdustan back to its greatness, willing to enter into hell itself if it means that Urdustan shall rise. He begins by re-instituting the economic policies of the 16th-century Urdustani Empire, in which agriculture was the largest economic focus of Urdustan, selling such goods as rice, potatoes, indigo, opium, wheat, cannabis and other crops. He plans to, within the year, revitalize the TAX and currency system, seeing as TAXES are exorbitantly high, ineffectively gather, and used for little other than royal festivities. As for the currency, he plans to introduce a well-regulated silver-based Urdustani Tanki to take the place of the currently near-unstable Tanki that is becoming more affected by regionalism as time goes on. Finally, he makes minor changes to the borders of the different vassals and personal unions of the Empire, personally taking down an 'ancient' map tacked inside the councilors chambers that failed to take remembrance of the Empires annexation of Orissa, and replaces it with a more modern and less-dingy version of the Urdustani map.
    • Swargadeo of Barhanivasa: The mainly Livestock and Cotton economy of the north, and the more rice and other crop economy of the south has changed little, but now under new governance that seeks to follow the policies of the new Emperor, the currency and tax changes are being prepared to take effect around a similar time as the Urdustani Empires. The effectiveness of the governance of the Swargadeo of Barhanivasa was relatively unaffected from the stagnation.
    • Rajya of Vijaynagar: The sister kingdom under the rule of Urdustan has faced great challenges, mainly from coastal pirates who took advantage of the lack of protected-sea trade that was experianced in the Empire. As such, their economy has faultered to a lower standard than previous, with much fewer exports than ever recorded. Seeing as the new Emperor is more focused on reinvigorating Urdustan at its core, the Raj of Vijaynagar, distantly related, sends a request to the new Emperor to aid in making sea travel far more safer and allow for the Vijaynagari economy to rebound, the request being well-received.
    • The Plutocratic State of Jaunpur: Jaunpur has experienced the worst effects of stagnation of bureacracy outside of the Empire itself, the plutocratic government raising high TAXES on the population and then using the taxes for their own gain. Actions such as this have led to small famines, and a severely weakened economy. A request is received by the plutocrats from the Emperor himself, who outlines a plan that is being attempted in the Empire itself at revitalizing the economy, playing moreso on their ability to gain more revenue at the increasing economy, rather than highlighting the benefits to the population that will also take place.
    • The Sultanate of Deccan: The Sultanate of Deccan, an outright Muslim state, has receeded only slightly in the wake of stagnation. This is due to their prime position in the middle of the Empire which has allowed them to be effect in agricultural growth, and their vast ports have allowed them to comit more towards exports than Vijaynagara. However, it is from the selfishness of the Sultans that all those vassals around them are poor and weakened because they have refused to share their wealth with their neighbors and refused to PARTICIPATE in intra-imperial trade. The Sultanate receives a request from the Emperor himself, a person's whos authority they have not witnessed in almost a century, to begin their participation in Imperial trade now that the ineffectiveness of the Empire has since passed.
    • The Rayja of Sindh: The Rayja of Sindh has changed little since the stagnation of the Empire, being focused on a major trade route and destination for foreign traders, as well as close to the former stronghold of the Spanish, and an enclave of Britannic and Dutch origin, allowing their trade to continue at pre-stagnation levels. They receive no word from the Emperor due to his belief that they are functioning accordingly.
  • Nihon Theocracy: The military/economy is built up. The success of the war against Tartary is celebrated, but the country mourns not long after because emperor Yorishiyo Yokohama IV dies from a heart attack at the imperial court. Horiyoshi Yokohama IV takes over the empire, and he offers extra trade to France and the Netherlands. Kyoto remains the capital of the Empire. Imperial Shinto is spread more through the empire. The conquered regions are made into a vassal, Saharin. After the victory Horiyoshi gains more popularity, and his birthday becomes a national holiday. In the most important event of the year, Horiyoshi declares the Nihon Theocracy, a new government structure. The emperor is worshipped as the complete god, making him the Kami of Japan. With this new structure, immediately all practice of all religions but Imperial Shinto and Buddhism(for now) is made illegal and those who do not convert are killed. We warn the Manchu Empire to stop their aggression against the Chinese states. Buddhism is illegalized too this year, Shinto is now the only religion that is allowed. Kami Horiyoshi has a son, named Matsuda, who is named Shinkami Matsuda I. We offer an alliance to the Netherlands and France(although I think I already have one with France). 
    • ​Nihonese Manchuria: Mil and eco built up. Imperial Shinto is spread. The capital is renamed to Manchuria-City (Manshū-Shi). All Manchu's who do not convert are killed, with their heads placed on the border with the Manchu Empire.

    • Shanghai: Military/Economy. Horiyoshi orders the process of Japanising Shanghai, with the intent of keeping it under Japan's control. However, during this time, European mercenaries are allowed to enter freely in and out of the city, but are sometimes randomly checked for excessive military supplies. Imperial Shinto is spread.
    • Qingdao: Military/Economy. Horiyoshi orders the process of Japanising Qingdao, with the intent of keeping it under Japan's control. However, during this time, European mercenaries are allowed to enter freely in and out of the city, but are sometimes randomly checked for excessive military supplies. Imperial Shinto is spread.
    • Heinan: Military/Economy. Horiyoshi orders the process of Japanising Heinan, with the intent of keeping it under Japan's control. However, during this time, European mercenaries are allowed to enter freely in and out of the city, but are sometimes randomly checked for excessive military supplies.
    • Hong Kong: Military/Economy. Horiyoshi orders the process of Japanising Hong Kong, with the intent of keeping it under Japan's control. However, during this time, European mercenaries are allowed to enter freely in and out of the city, but are sometimes randomly checked for excessive military supplies.
    • Macau: Military/Economy. Horiyoshi orders the process of Japanising Macau, with the intent of keeping it under Japan's control. However, during this time, European mercenaries are allowed to enter freely in and out of the city, but are sometimes randomly checked for excessive military supplies.
    • Saharin: Military/Economy. The capital is renamed to Toyohara. Japanese settlers are sent to the vassal. Several Tartar inhabitants are sent back to the Tartary. Imperial Shinto is spread onto the territory. All those who do not follow Shinto are killed.
    • Īsutorando: Expands by 500 sq km. The capital is named Horiyoshi-Shi (Horiyoshi-City). The area currently isn't very fertile, and thus Horiyoshi orders focus on expanding the colony into more fertile areas. The first somewhat fertile areas are reached.
  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Bavaria, Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach nine million by 1740. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. Scandinavia reaps the benefits of the war in Spain, dominating the world market. During this period of economic power, industrialization and urbanization see significant rises. In the meantime, Scandinavia aims to create a presence in Africa, particularly in the southern regions. They begin trading with the South Africans now that Spain has left the area. Scandinavia establishes several deals with the South Africans. In essence, the long way to vassalization begins. The indigenous people of South Africa are treated with kindness and courtesy, being met halfway in these deals. (Vassalization turn 1 of 10). In New Zealand, Scandinavia begins to inform the Maori of Hamburg's lies. Hamburg's concerns lie with gaining power and attempting to usurp their betters, not with the Maori. Furthermore, all Hamburg deals with the New Zealanders inside of Scandinavian borders are declared as void.
    • Helluland: The military and economy are improved. Helluland expands by 1000 sq km this year. Helluland is responsible for the production of furs in the Scandinavian Empire, generating much profit for the colony.
    • Huronsmark: The military and economy are improved. Huronsmark expands by 1000 sq km this year. Huronsmark is responsible for the production of furs and timber in the Scandinavian Empire, generating much profit for the colony
    • Iceland: The military and economy are improved. Iceland is an important port for northern Europeans. Due to the large amounts of trade flowing into Icelandic ports, the population of Iceland increases. An outpost on Greenland is built.
    • Jansylvania: The military and economy are expanded. Jansylvania is Scandinavia's newest colony, though it has grown rapidly since its establishment. Jansylvania yields large amounts of timber, though it is also a massive center of trade between Scandiavia and Native Americans.
    • Karelia: The military and economy expand. Karelia has been in the Scandinavian realm for centuries now. It is the location of many important fortresses, namely Castle Vyborg. Karelia is a massive source of iron for Scandinavia. Trade with Russia and Pskov flows through Karelia during the summer months.
    • New Gotland: The military and economy expand. New Gotland is one of Scandinavia's older colonies. A coastal colony, New Gotland specializes in shipbuilding and trading along the Borealian East Coast. Timber is also produced in New Gotland.
    • New Zealand: The military and economy expands.
    • Ohijo: The militia of Ohijo is established while the economy is established. The capital of Ohijo is established as Rolvstead after General Jans Rolvson, who led the Scandinavians to victory in the Minor Lake Skirmishes. Rolvstead was originally a trading depot for European traders before the Erie tribes raided it. While parts of the town are relatively intact, other parts have been demolished, re-purposed, or have otherwise decayed.
    • Schleswig: The military and economy are expanded. Schleswig has been a vassal of the Scandinavian Empire for quite some time. All land routes into Scandinavia go through this vassal, meaning Schleswig is one of Scandinavia's wealthiest vassals.
    • Sjösmark: The military and economy are expanded. The colony expands by 5000 sq km this year. Trade with Nehilaw brings gold and people into the colony.
    • Strombek: The military and economy are expanded. Strombek expands by 5000 sq km. Strombek is one of Scandinavia's oldest and most successful colonies. Trade along the St Lawrence River makes it one of the wealthiest as well. Strombek is a source of furs and timber for Scandinavia.
    • Vinland: The military and economy are expanded. Vinland expands by 5000 sq km. The oldest of Scandinavia's colonies, Vinland is one of the most populous colonies along the eastern Borealian coast. Its capital, New Copenhagen, has become the most populous city on the east Borealian coast. Immigrants from Northern Europe flock to Vinland, especially New Copenhagen, in search of a new life
  • Buenos Aries: The military continues to train loyal troops to fight for the nation. The navy continues to build more battleships. Cities continue to rebuild themselves like European cities. Ports expand to fit more ships. A big library is continuing being built in the capital city. It will store books from around the world. The first university in the country is continuing being built in the capital city. Walls and outposts around the capital city are continuing being built. We thank Uruguay for accepting the alliance. A border control team is being formed. Farming is our biggest industry. The population tries to mix the ethnicities of Spanish and Native. Also the population increase due to high birth rates. We continue to accept immigrants into our nation that were kicked out of the Inca Empire.
  • Wu: Some Wu temples and Buddhist temples are built round the areas of Wu. Wu expects some good plans to build a bunker and outposts.
    • Yue: The economy improves. Yue invest the modest income in the infrastructure. While separately building temples.
  • In Aragon, the nation continues rebuilding after the great destruction caused by the war. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads, and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. The construction of new ships and the purchase of foreign weaponry continues. The government issues bonds to help stabilize the federal economy. Meanwhile, the Assembly seeks to formally establish relations with Bavaria and Scandinavia. A mutual defense pact is offered to Italy.
  • Croatian Archvoivodeship (Hrvatsko Nadvojvodstvo): Military turn. Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of the Archvoivodeship. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan and also Britannic expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. As the war for Hungary ends, some Croats and Hungarians are still unsatisfied as not all was achieved since the spoils of war had to be shared with the Romans. With the end of the war against Hispania, Croatia attempts to rebuild its economy using the control over Hercules' Pillars as a support. Trade routes are strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. The Brothers of the Raven continue spreading their influence in Croatia. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. The navy, under command of the Bajan and the First Admiral is developed due to the purchase of Britannic ships which are inspected and introduced into the Royal War Navy of Croatia or HBRM (Hrvatska Bajanska Ratna Mornarica). Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. Britannic assistance aids with the naval reform. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. The administrative reform continues. Pavao Bartol Bunić, with full support of both the Croatian and Czech Sabor, declares Czechia a free nation. Although seen as a peaceful gesture and one that is supposed to strengthen Slavic ties, the main reason behind it is to minimize the amount of funds wasted on nations that aren't as useful to Croatia as they used to be.
    • Silesian Voivodeship (Šlezijsko Vojvodstvo): The Voivodeship's natural resources are highly sought in the rest of the nations with which is connected, which leads to economic growth. The Silesian cultural movement flourishes with aid of the Croats, who aim to make Silesia a region independent from both Poland and the Czechia.
    • Županija Dahomey: The natural resources are quickly put to use, such as coconuts, cotton both refined and raw as well as the gold. Finally, the wood industry prospers as materials are needed for new ships that would help keep the connection between Croatia and Dahomey strong.
    • Isles of the Archvoivodeship (Otoci Nadvojvodstva): The infrastructure is built up.
    • Županija of Hercules Pillars' (Županija Herkulovih Stupova): The županija's pivotal position as a trade nod creates an a sufficite allowing for the economy to expand.
  • Kingdom of Italy: An Italian noble family by the name of Deluca, who once co-operated with the Romans in ages past, has been chosen to be the royal family of Italy. The leading member of the family, Dario, has been coronated as the King of Italy. Most properties formerly belonging to the Spanish royal family is confiscated and granted to the Delucas for their own personal use, while some of it being divided into small pieces of land and given to the poor. Roman forces are garrisoned in Italy to help the new administration govern the land and enforce its new laws. Both the Imperial government and the Italian nobles focus on important cities like Naples, Rome, Florence, Ravenna, Ancona, Bari, and Palermo, realizing that building loyalty and holding those cities are the key to maintaining Italy. Roman military forces train and supply the local Italian forces, many of whom are made up of former Italian soldiers under the Spanish Empire and Italian rebels during the war. As such, integration within the military is difficult and will take some time. The Romans also help with rebuilding damaged military infrastructure and fortifications across Italy. Most of Tuscany, Latium, and Naples are under the administration of the Italian government, and those regions remain the core of Italian administration and power. Italy also starts building a small military, aimed to aid the larger, parent Roman navy when in times of need. Rome, and the other Italian cities also grow at a good rate.
  •  The Empire of Britannia: Many ships are modernized and replaced to keep the British Royal Navy a powerful force on the high seas. The Empire enacts a new series of reforms designed to better govern the numerous holdings of the Empire. The Empire, having had many years of isolation and inactivity on the global scale, rejoins the world stage. The first modernization steps are taken to streamline the military forces. The Crown Colonial Association also decides to also streamline the Borealian colonies. The former L'nu nation is integrated into New Dublin to form the Dominion of Arcadia. Other nation changes include economic reforms to restart the sluggish economy and a greater focus on military technology. The military is updated. A new model for economic production is released in homes of bolstering Britannia's economy, one of the leading economies in the world. The efforts come after many years of flagging production and scientific stagnation. Nowhere are these reforms more found than the colonies, where governors have been told to move away from a purely exploitive model to a more productive, economic model. The hope is by freeing up some of the labor force that was once used for exploitation, and use that force in a more efficient capacity, that profits and production would rise. Parliament clamors for continued updates to infrastructure and technology. The Britannic war of succession finally appears to be over with King James officially coronated at the Tower of London as Emperor James of Scotland, Ruler of Britannia and her holdings, Defender of the Faith, Most August. James will consider entertaining the Oldenbuger request in regards to officially ending the civil war and provide the former house with some position. In the meantime, the former emperor flees to a safe haven in Hamburg. The Council of Kent is convened to end the succession crisis. Emperor James states that he will allow the House of Hamburg to remain nobility and offer the family control over Arcadia. King James, 41, adopts a son from a London orphanage, Naming him Charles I.
    • Scotland: Expands navy and military. The Edinburgh Stock Exchange continues to do well.

    • Eire: The Irish continue to expand the navy and army, even more so due to the strains in Europe.
    • Dominion of Arcadia: Continues to expand 1000 sq km inland. A large influx of settlers arrive from Eire. The new realignment of the two colonial holdings of L'nu and New Dublin see a massive increase of settlers as the new dominion governor enacts more reforms targeted toward economy and finance.
    • New Cambridgeshire: New Cambridgeshire expands by 1000 sq km west. Colonists begin to explore around the region and begin to have a large fishing boom. The Port of New Oxford is expanded to handle excess ships from Britannia and other European nations. A large influx of settlers arrive from Britannia, fueled by the fears and rumours of war. Due to the recent influx of furs, the local population booms. Shipping also booms as many new merchant vessels are constructed to meet demand. The Borealian colonies all expand inland 1000 sq km.
    • Dominion of Mexaca: The Prime Minister of the newly created Dominion of Mexaca, Cesar Tontaltec, starts the rebuilding process for the nation. Consulates and government buildings are set up in the new capital of Zapoteca (OTL Monterrey). The name reflects a link to the nation's past, while the city is meant to be a driving force in the nation's development. The political capital is located in Zapoteca, while the cultural capital remains in the old capital of Danibaan. Tontaltec meets with Britannian diplomats to streamline the process of setting up the new dominion. Basic infrastructure is restored, many citizens recruited to rebuild roads, bridges, and boats. Prime Minister Tontaltec believes that employing the masses of impoverished people will help the struggling economy. Basic goods also resume production - fruits, vegetables, flax, timber, fisheries, etc. While most of the population speaks a regional dialect of Spanish (with a strong Zapotec influence), English is introduced, and will slowly be built up as the main language of the nation. The new Flag of Mexaca is colored in red, white, and blue, to show ties to Britannia. It also displayes the icon of the Mexacan cross, a symbol popularly used by churches in the nation.
    • Protectorate of Pagantonia: The Protectorate of Pagantonia continues to try to suppress revolts by former Spaniards, but with minimal to no success. However, the advances by the rebels are fairly slow, protecting Britannian people and cities. However, with the sense that the revolts will worsen, Emperor James I orders a fort to be built around the capital to protect the people from the advancing rebellions.
    • Protectorate of Morocco: The Protectorate of Morocco is placed under military occupation since the War of the First Coalition, as mostly poorer lower class citizens come to make a fortune. A few farms spot up on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea mainly by debtors and families who are in need to repay the government. A popular shipbuilder, named George Smith, starts to sell older and worn out ships to merchants, particularly those who are desperate need for a vessel.
    • Colony of New Guerney: A flood of immigrants arrives at Port William on the island of New Guerney (OTL Hispaniola) as the colony continues to experience an unprecedented influx of colonists. Several new industries emerge as an increased demand for merchant marine ships rises.
    • Colony of New Belfast: More immigrants arrive at the Colony if New Belfast (OTL Cuba) as the colony continues to experience an unprecedented influx of colonists. Already key exports such as sugarcane, slaves, and tobbaco are exported to the many different markets around the British Empire and to other places. Several new industries emerge as an increased demand for merchant marine ships rises.
    • Port Edmundburg: Expands by 1000 sq km south and east down the coast. The African colonists begin looking toward mining and other ventures to generate profit. A new newspaper, the first in a colony, is founded, called the Edmundburg Report. The slave trade begins to boom as exploitation of local minerals reaches a high amount. Slaves are sent to the New World to help boost production.
    • Crown Colony Ghana: More troops are raised from locals. Military and infrastructure are expanded. Most locals now see themselves as loyal British citizens and now fully vote and represent the colonies, Ghana becomes the first Brittannic colony to invoke near self rule, with little regulation from the homeland due to the mutual respect from the others. Any separatist movements are largely ignored.
    • Colony of Durbin: The colony of Durbin expands along the western coast of Australia from the former settlement that crashed there so long ago. With contact and resources flowing in from Britannia a minor boom is witnessed (colony expands 1000 sq km south along western coast).
    • Colony of the Yucatan: The colony of Yucatan experiences a slight economic boom from the recovering economy. Logging industries cut down valuable wood, which is sold for a through the the Imperial Sea.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire celebrates its unprecedented victory in the war against Spain and the liberation of Rome. Roman forces come home to massive applause in the streets and both Emperor Andrew I and the Senate are acclaimed for their victory. Despite this victory, Andrew I is an old man and he is not expected to last much longer. With his son dead, one of his two grandsons is expected to succeed him as Emperor. The Empire does what it can to solidify its gain in Italy, and rebuilds roads, forts, and cities after the destructive war. Trade routes, long damages from the war yet mostly untouched within the eastern Mediterranean, are re-established in order to bring Roman trade power back up to its prime while also expanding Roman influence, as Rome is now one of the most powerful states in the world. Industry slowly starts to build up in the Empire, as people rush to the cities in Greece and Anatolia in order to get jobs at factories, while plants begin to be built along rivers in order to use them for their power. Relations with new nations such as Navarre, Aragon and Mexaca are established in order to expand Roman influence and trade in the world. The military, already with high morale after the war with Spain, continues to train and improve itself, in case of any revolts or invasions by another power. After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. In order to expand upon their influence in Volayacor and the Hesperian continent, the Roman Empire aligns itself towards the Hesperian Confederation and starts to provide them with technical aid and weapons in exchange for political alliegance and trade goods. Italian merchants are integrated into the Roman economic system, learning their trade from experienced merchants and being able to draw upon considerable influence and financial backing.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • County of Oldenburg: The Regency Council signs off on legislation annexing the Prince-Bishopric of Osnabruck into Oldenburg proper. This means that from now on, laws passed by the Landtag in Oldenburg will be automatically valid in Osnabruck, the latter will elect members to the Landtag (still on the same limited property-based suffrage as in Oldenburg, don't worry), the Osnabruck military will be incorporated into the command structure of the Oldenburg military, but still remain internally independent. The Prince-Bishop will retain his title and also maintain certain powers in the former Prince-Bishopric, and lands owned by the Church will remain so (which, in the case of Osnabruck, would mean that at least 50% of land would remain in the hands of the Church). In recognition of the large increase in the country's size, the Regency Council declares that the nation will be advanced to the Duchy of Oldenburg, and requests all foreign nations recognise this move. The re-naming of certain institutions such as army units begins in earnest to reflect Oldenburg's new Ducal nature. In other news, more Turnpike Trusts are established, and there are already signs of improvement in some sections of road.
    • Hamburgian Dip: Duke Friedrich IV replys that Hamburg would immediately recognize the elevation of Oldenburg to Ducal status.
    • Oldenburger Dip: The Regency Council thanks Hamburg for their kind (and extremely swift) recognition.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The Ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate.The Civil war ends with teh capitulation of Konigsberg and the signing of the treaty of Vilnus, which divided the territory between the reformed Republics of Prussia and Lithuania, and Poland. As a result, much of the old nobility is tried and convicted of high treason and have their lands, titles, and wealth confiscated, and they themselves sentenced to life in prison on an island-prison run by the PIC (not the best of places) or sentenced to work as labourers in Zlatobrezhie. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the number of rebellions in the future. The PIC pokes around near nubimia again, just to get killed off by the natives once more. in other news stuff happens
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn.

    • In the United Republic of Prussia and Danzig benefits from the de facto free trade with Croatia begin to show and grow its economy, GDP and average wages, as Prussia recovers from the war. Much of the wealth and lands of the nobility are now free game for the various merchants, who begin fierce competition. While the Union troops have not left by the end of the year, it will be seen as unusual if they are not gone by next year, and elections are not held for a new Bundestag.
    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarussia and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase.
    • Prussia: Infrastructure is improved. Frederick II asks France, Bavaria and Oldenburg for an alliance. He also asks for peace with the countries invading. We begin converting those who are not Ludwigist into Ludwigists.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria: In 1766, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is abandoned after 1760 and the new capital is moved to Regensburg. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. King Frederick I, aged 45, and Queen Mary I, aged 31, and their councils continue to allow the training of new troops. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Bavaria maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. In political news, the King and Queen continue to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils, the separation having occurred in 1668. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg, and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. The Deutsche Diet is created in 1736, and using her powers as Supreme Chancellor of the Curia Bavaria, places the seat of the Diet in Augsburg, where the historic Imperial Diet also sat. Many Bavarians and Austrians are fine with this placement, being far enough away from Bavarian influence which could corrupt the Diet. This new Diet will occupy supremacy over both the Curias Bavaria and Austria, and in essence will act as an Upper House to both regional Curias. Concerning Venezia, the King and Queen and the Deutsche Diet begin implementing policies similar to the policies King Leopold II adopted after the devastating war on Austria. Specifically, poorhouses are established all over Venezia, the streets are cleaned up, and taxes are lowered greatly as the Deutsche Diet pay for 40% of post-war expenses. In 1761, the Austrian revolt is essentially over, and much of the country is on the road to recovery. The Deutsche Diet is lifted from suspension, and by mid-year, most of the parliamentarians return to work. The King splits Brandenburg and Pomerania between himself and his wife, with himself becoming the Duke of Brandenburg and herself the Duchess of Pomerania. They ignore the fact that Sybille von Wittelsbach is still alive, and continues to press her claim on Brandenburg. Similarly, Franz-Hector I has strong claims on both Pomerania and on the crown of Bavaria through his imprisoned mother, who still remains alive. Now called a Princess, the former Queen Frances is locked up in Passau, along with her eldest daughter Joan and politician Felix Manzkari. The King fears that plots will arise aiming to free her and put her back on the throne, so he amplifies her bodyguard in order to watch over her more closely. The King remains wary of executing her, admitting privately that she is still a god-ordained Queen, and by killing her would angry the Bavarian population. Mary I shares her husbands sentiments and does not even ponder the execution of the Queen. However, Felix Manzkari is given much less leniency and many Austrians call for him to be killed for treason. In other news, the King and Queen work on reforming and rebuilding the military, and encourage mercantile business in the major cities. Franz-Hector and Sybille von Wittelsbach continues raising forces in Neustadt, and hope to invade Bavaria after 1765. Their hopes come to fruition that year, when Franz-Hector I raises a force of 6,000 Hamburgian forces from in and around Neustadt, while the Duchess-in-Exile Sybille tours around Lübeck and raises an extra 3,500. They cross over into Pomerania on June 16, and news reaches the King and Queen the following week. King Frederick knows that the Bavarian military is still very much in tatters after the war, but hopes for the best. He raises a personal militia of only 2,000 men, and decides to issue a series of drafts and conscriptions over the months of June and July. However, many former soldiers and miltiamen simply ignore the drafts and stick with civilian life. Only 3,000 former men re-enter the army and navy. With only half as many men as Franz-Hector, Frederick embarks towards Pomerania with low hopes. Mary I stays behind in Regensburg and continues reforming the administration and military. By September, the only major siege of Pomerania is the short siege of Stettin, which ends after only six days. The rest of Pomerania quickly swears fealty to their former Wittelsbach Duke. King Frederick sets up camp in Berlin and focuses on training troops there, not expecting to engage in battle until the next year. King Frederick marches into Brandenburg in the late winter, with only a measly force compared to the thousands of men under Franz-Hector's banner. Several inconconclusive battles are fought around Berlin, however, as the year wears on it becomes clear that Franz-Hector has the upper hand in terms of military expertise and strength. Frederick is wounded on March 19 during the Siege of Berlin and is forced to return home to Regensburg. He seems to recover there, but it is a false reprieve, and Frederick falls dangerously ill with what appears to be a wound-related infection. He dies on April 5, after a few weeks worth of being bedridden. Queen Mary I, now sole sovereign, is strucken with grief and sadness, and now has to deal with political instability following her husband's death. Many Bavarian nobles set their ambitions on Mary's throne, and in response, she tightens her bodyguard and develops the espionage web at court in order to best protect herself. Mary I declares that despite her husband's death, the war with Franz-Hector will continue until a suitable peace can be brokered.

In 1732, the investors of the RBSC put forth a combined total of 500,000 reichstalers in the construction of ships, training of private troops, and a military expedition into Negara Dipa next year. Conflict is expected to occur in coming decades.
    • NewBavariaFlagNew Bavaria: The colony of Nei Baiern continues to expand in population. Katharinas-Hafen, Franznacken, Bayreuth, Nei Regens, and Regenholz all expand by the end of the year. Houses and shops in each settlement continue being built. Jülichsberg and Wittlesberg both expand. Nei Baiern expands 2000 km. The militias and shops are developed. A small logging and fishing town is founded north of Wilhelmsbaum island, on the mainland. The settlement, mainly populated by Saxons, comes to be called Regenholz. News of the Austrian rebellion reaches Borealia.

1767

The ineffectiveness of the current Vlachian regime is made known when they fail to address the issues of the Carpathian Hungarians. The situation worsens, as riots become more common and the Vlachian government struggles to put them down.

The Zulu nation, while willing to trade and deal with the Scandinavians, or any Europeans that respect their territory, refuse to submit and rebuff all attempts of vassalization.

  • Kingdom of Castile: The Kingdom of Castile sees a slight demographical as immigration from former Spanish colonies for the economic opportunity is on the rise. The Spanish population reaches about 10.5 million, mostly due to the large influx of Spanish immigrants coming from South America The Empire officially begins a reform of the economic system looking to get away from reliance on gold and silver to bail the economy out of crisis from war debt, The bullion is instead geared toward giving the empire a competitive edge in being able to invest millions on a whim in order to drive up investments and production. However, in order to pay off debt, larger taxes are imposed on the wealthier class, with the current monarch starting to become less popular as the King of Castile, who already has been called "A bodacious fool" by the military commander. A meeting within the wealthier class is held later in the year, mostly with nobles, military commanders, etc., to impose a new law to renounce the current tax law imposed by the Castilian monarch. These meetings, however, establish nothing among the wealthier class, with the nobles demanding that the monarch must not tax them if their hard earned money. Instead, the Castilian Monarch decides to impose taxes on the lower class, instead of taxing the more important people of their hard earned money. Peasants, already poor from paying off the nations debt, are being taxed even more by the Monarch, resulting in unhappiness among the lower class. Talks to get the tax repealed are brought up, but only the success of organizing meeting and protests late in the year. The monarch, ignore these pleas and continues to heavily tax the poor and leaves the military up to crush any protests that break out. The monarch sends a royal fiat to the peasantry, which translated into English says "The nobles have worked hard for what they have done, and what you have done, means nothing to Castile and her motherlands." Large protests break out in Madrid, with the intent of getting the Castilian Monarch to lower the taxes on the peasantry of Castile. Seeing these revolts, The Castilian Monarch repeals the law, with him deciding to tax the nobles (again). The nobles again, are enraged. So, a noble named Phillip IV of Toledo, now enraged after the many years of failure to sustain and properly control Castile, secretly an long with the other nobles slowly organize a peasant army to overthrow the current monarch. Phillip IV of Toledo, with his newly recruited peasant army, launch a coup against the current Castilian government, after years of building up tensions throughout the nation. Local militias led by nobles and other supporters of Phillip IV of Toledo. Meanwhile, the Castilian navy begins further development of its new larger classes of ships, churning out first rate flagships for various fleets, and more third rates, and fourth rates with the occasional second rate to augment the smaller patrol fleets the fifth and sixth rates begin to become more standard as light and medium frigates for singular voyages and patrols among other things. The Castilian attitudes on industrialism continue to change but the nobility seems rather unhappy about having to see more common people in major cities. With relatively no sources of power, the natural sources of power, and in some cases manpower are used for the increasing amount of textile mills among other things. The flocking of populations to Northern Spain continues with a mass increase of population in Madrid, Zaragoza, Pamplona, and various other minor cities and townships throughout the north.
  • Duchy of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and its subjects expand their economies. Early in the year, word of Speaker Hone Hekes remarks concerning Scandinavia's expansion in the New Rugian islands reaches Duke Friedrich and the Hanoverian Parliament. Both immediately endorse Hekes position, as well as issuing their own condemnation of the severing of inter-tribe agreements and deals by Scandinavia. The Hamburgian Navy diverts seven additional ships to the New Rugian detachment for the defense of the area while shipyards are built and upgraded.
  • Great Manchu Empire: With the sudden death of the previous Emperor, his eldest son-in-law Shinji Hiraku succeeded the throne and acquired the position of Emperor of the Manchu Empire. One of his first decisions was to establish a tax system to extract tax from the people but to also make sure that not too much pressure was put upon the peasants. The Emperor was keen on improving the agricultural status in the state, and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Trade with Korea, Imperium of Heaven and Japan proved beneficial as Manchu exported agricultural goods - especially lumber - to these states. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Meanwhile, a large army of roughly 300,000 men was raised to defend the state from any foreign invasion with the soldiers handed light matchlock muskets snaphaunces, and with pikes equipped to be used while charging upon the enemy. Therefore, importance was given to the production of firearms and gunpowder. The infantry was equipped with daggers and swords to be utilised in close combat against the enemy and horses as well as carts were used for the transportation of supplies. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. Many eunuchs who opposed this decision were put to death and eventually, the system of eunuchs was put down to prevent any power from opposing the Emperor. The Emperor ordered an increase in the teaching of subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and especially on developing new firearms and many firearms imported from Hispania were reverse-engineered to create identical copies. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and build up our navy. Major military reforms were brought and a paramilitary force referred to as the Manchu Guards is initiated. The paramilitary comprising of 50,000 guards swore allegiance to the Emperor and were ordered to put down any rebellion swiftly and without mercy. Having toppled Hebei and Shangjing, the Manchu stand firm as the sole representatives of China! Threats by Japan for our persecution of the Shinto people are ignored. With literally don't give a f*ck with the Japanese persecuting non-Shinto with most Manchu Strategists and Generals believing that Japan is digging its own grave for a the great majority of people in Formosa, Saharin and Hokkaido do not believe in Shinto and a large community of Buddhists form a part of mainland Japan.

    • Shangjingkou: The state - being agriculturally strong - had numerous agricultural projects initiated and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state, and moreover these goods were exported to other Chinese states. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and built up our navy, eventually preparing a navy of 100 ships. [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Kingdom of Shijiazuang: With the recent defeat of Hebei following its decision to aid Hispania, parts of the Kingdom of Hebei were officially integreted into the Empire of Manchuria. A paramilitary consisting of 10,000 Manchu was set up and members of the Royal family who were found were executed. The Emperor initiated the start of promotion of Japanese culture and Shinto in order to align the Kingdom of Hebei with Japan and to prevent any future rebellions. Meanwhile, schools were rapidly built and local merchants were made to engage in trade with the Japanese. Lanzhou, Shijuazuang, Hebei and Shangjing are all integrated into a single province known as the Kingdom of Shijiazuang.

Meanwhile, a paramilitary consisting of 500 men was set up to maintain law and order in the state, and a system of spies had been established to eradicate opposition to Manchu rule. The native Mongol people were treated generously, but all those that had fought against the Manchu in the war were sent to work in the fields although this did mean that the populace did not take part in cultivation and harvest of crops. To modify the trade route present in the state, Dorgon initiated the start of the road system to link the trade route and by now, up to 5000 men were recruited into the military. Crops were cultivated to feed the poor, and a trade system had been established to trade with the Turkic tribes. Islam is allowed to flourish in Uighur Khanate and no interference is made in the religious matters for fear of the Uighur people rebelling. A major mosque is also constructed to please the Uighur for helping to crush the uprising in Lanzhou. [Mil/Eco Turn]

Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue to expand their road network throughout the natio. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion.
  • NewAustriaFlagNew Austria (Colony of Bavaria): The economy and military improve. Cities in the mountains and valleys continue to modernize their industries, and the expansion of these businesses contribute to the growth of villages along the Amerigo River (OTL Columbia River) as far as Late Maria (OTL Lac St. Anne). Businesses for manufacturing carpentry, textiles, and metalwork continue to grow, and these commodities are exported to the neighboring French and German colonies by land and sea. The professional army is continually trained, while the forts are expanded and new artillery are manufactured. More caravels and frigates are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands. The university of New Vienna is beginning to generate a new generation of intellectuals and engineers. The first newspapers in Boralia are printed at New Vienna, and are distributed throughout the colony. A synthesized Hispanic-German culture is emerging from the younger generation, and the young men now refer to themselves as Boralians. A novel by Martin de la Venn, published in 1760, first coins this term. However, there still remains a small enclave of pure Hispanics in small, northern villages. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in the northeastern forests. The city of New Munich is established near the Saripente River (OTL Snake River), and very quickly expands as a center of commerce. Buffalo products become extremely popular throughout the colony, thanks to the efforts of Johann Baptist de Fages. His village of Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City) is incorporated into the colony. In order to take control of the buffalo market, New Austria claims all the land west of the Eastern Mountain (OTL Bitterroot Mountains) and north of the 40th Parallel. A series of forts are constructed along the Eastern Mountains, and a network of highways are built to connect these back to New Munich. Small villages begin to spring up along these highways. We offer to sell bison products to the Nehilaw Sachemate and French Boralia.
  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Bavaria, Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach nine million by 1740. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. Scandinavia reaps the benefits of the war in Spain, dominating the world market. During this period of economic power, industrialization and urbanization see significant rises. Scandinavia is disappointed that the Zulu nation wishes to 'go it alone,' but it understands. Shipping routes to the South African nation are created. Scandinavia works with the Maori on the North island of New Zealand to convince the Maori on the south island that Hamburg does not have their interest at heart. A prominent Maori chieftain in the Ngāpuhi iwa declares that Hamburg has been lying about Scandinavia in order to further their own goals. This chieftain, Pango Hika, who has been working with Scandinavia for a number of years now, rallies the tribes in the northern island in support of Scandinavia. He states that, "Hamburg's harsh words only portray their contempt for Scandinavia and their desire to be a thorn in Scandinavia's side wherever it goes, regardless of Scandinavia's intentions. They care little for the Maori."

  • Croatian Archvoivodeship (Hrvatsko Nadvojvodstvo): Military turn. Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of the Archvoivodeship. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan and also Britannic expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. As the war for Hungary ends, some Croats and Hungarians are still unsatisfied as not all was achieved since the spoils of war had to be shared with the Romans. With the end of the war against Hispania, Croatia attempts to rebuild its economy using the control over Hercules' Pillars as a support. Trade routes are strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. The Brothers of the Raven continue spreading their influence in Croatia. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on.

Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. Britannic assistance aids with the naval reform. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. The administrative reform continues. Pavao Bartol Bunić, with full support of both the Croatian and Silesian Sabor, declares Silesiaa a free nation. Due to the relatively large Polish minority, unrest often rattles the nation, so, in order to avoid any larger issues, Silesia is granted freedom.
    • Županija Dahomey: The natural resources are quickly put to use, such as coconuts, cotton both refined and raw as well as the gold. Finally, the wood industry prospers as materials are needed for new ships that would help keep the connection between Croatia and Dahomey strong.

  • The Nehilaw continue to modernize and advance their interests, as do all vassals. With the restoration of the gift economy following the civil war, many of landlords and nobles are dispossessed of much of their fortunes, while peasants are considerably enriched and placed at an advantage. Nomadic herding becomes less common as more people settle down to farm or to participate in new, more specialized industries such as mining or weaving. Seeking to reduce the economy's dependence on commodities in the export market, the High Sachem begins sponsoring specialized craftsmen from Europe to immigrate and settle down. Many thousands take up his offer, particularly from France. Both luxury goods like casino, furs and ivory and more practical goods like whale oil, lumber and dried cod are traded. The military grows, with the High Sachem seeking to create a small weapons-manufacturing industry to supply it, and sponsoring many gunsmiths to achieve this. With abundant supplies of guano in the nation, gunpowder production becomes an important industry throughout.In the nation's southernmost regions, fertilizer use, mainly based around guano, vastly increases agricultural production, supplemented with the increased use of crop rotations and rest years for fields. Agricultural advances trigger a burgeoning population, which expands 4000 km north. The offer of New Austria is accepted, and the Nehilaw offer their western territories to be placed under French administration in order to speed expansion.
  • Duchy of Oldenburg: The newly-elevated duchy focuses on its military. And not just on re-naming units like the Ducal Guard (formerly Comital Guard) etc., but it also focuses on actually making it better.

  • Roman Empire: The Empire celebrates its unprecedented victory in the war against Spain and the liberation of Rome. Roman forces come home to massive applause in the streets and both Emperor Andrew I and the Senate are acclaimed for their victory. Despite this victory, Andrew I is an old man and he is not expected to last much longer. With his son dead, one of his two grandsons is expected to succeed him as Emperor. The Empire does what it can to solidify its gain in Italy, and rebuilds roads, forts, and cities after the destructive war. Trade routes, long damages from the war yet mostly untouched within the eastern Mediterranean, are re-established in order to bring Roman trade power back up to its prime while also expanding Roman influence, as Rome is now one of the most powerful states in the world. Industry slowly starts to build up in the Empire, as people rush to the cities in Greece and Anatolia in order to get jobs at factories, while plants begin to be built along rivers in order to use them for their power. Relations with new nations such as Navarre, Aragon and Mexaca are established in order to expand Roman influence and trade in the world. The military, already with high morale after the war with Spain, continues to train and improve itself, in case of any revolts or invasions by another power. After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. In order to expand upon their influence in Volayacor and the Hesperian continent, the Roman Empire aligns itself towards the Hesperian Confederation and starts to provide them with technical aid and weapons in exchange for political alliegance and trade goods. Italian merchants are integrated into the Roman economic system, learning their trade from experienced merchants and being able to draw upon considerable influence and financial backing.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • In Aragon, the nation continues rebuilding after the great destruction caused by the war. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads, and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. The construction of new ships and the purchase of foreign weaponry continues. The government issues bonds to help stabilize the federal economy. Meanwhile, the Assembly seeks to formally establish relations with Bavaria and Scandinavia. A mutual defense pact is offered to Italy.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria: In 1767, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is abandoned after 1760 and the new capital is moved to Regensburg. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I, aged 32, and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Bavaria maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. In political news, the King and Queen continue to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils, the separation having occurred in 1668. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg, and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. The Deutsche Diet is created in 1736, and using her powers as Supreme Chancellor of the Curia Bavaria, places the seat of the Diet in Augsburg, where the historic Imperial Diet also sat. Many Bavarians and Austrians are fine with this placement, being far enough away from Bavarian influence which could corrupt the Diet. This new Diet will occupy supremacy over both the Curias Bavaria and Austria, and in essence will act as an Upper House to both regional Curias. Concerning Venezia, the Queen and the Deutsche Diet begin implementing policies similar to the policies King Leopold II adopted after the devastating war on Austria. Specifically, poorhouses are established all over Venezia, the streets are cleaned up, and taxes are lowered greatly as the Deutsche Diet pay for 40% of post-war expenses. In 1761, the Austrian revolt is essentially over, and much of the country is on the road to recovery. The Deutsche Diet is lifted from suspension, and by mid-year, most of the parliamentarians return to work. The King splits Brandenburg and Pomerania between himself and his wife, with himself becoming the Duke of Brandenburg and herself the Duchess of Pomerania. They ignore the fact that Sybille von Wittelsbach is still alive, and continues to press her claim on Brandenburg. Similarly, Franz-Hector I has strong claims on both Pomerania and on the crown of Bavaria through his imprisoned mother, who still remains alive. Now called a Princess, the former Queen Frances is locked up in Passau, along with her eldest daughter Joan and politician Felix Manzkari. The King fears that plots will arise aiming to free her and put her back on the throne, so he amplifies her bodyguard in order to watch over her more closely. The King remains wary of executing her, admitting privately that she is still a god-ordained Queen, and by killing her would angry the Bavarian population. Mary I shares her husbands sentiments and does not even ponder the execution of the Queen. However, Felix Manzkari is given much less leniency and many Austrians call for him to be killed for treason. In other news, the King and Queen work on reforming and rebuilding the military, and encourage mercantile business in the major cities. Franz-Hector and Sybille von Wittelsbach continues raising forces in Neustadt, and hope to invade Bavaria after 1765. Their hopes come to fruition that year, when Franz-Hector I raises a force of 6,000 Hamburgian forces from in and around Neustadt, while the Duchess-in-Exile Sybille tours around Lübeck and raises an extra 3,500. They cross over into Pomerania on June 16, and news reaches the King and Queen the following week. King Frederick knows that the Bavarian military is still very much in tatters after the war, but hopes for the best. He raises a personal militia of only 2,000 men, and decides to issue a series of drafts and conscriptions over the months of June and July. However, many former soldiers and miltiamen simply ignore the drafts and stick with civilian life. Only 3,000 former men re-enter the army and navy. With only half as many men as Franz-Hector, Frederick embarks towards Pomerania with low hopes. Mary I stays behind in Regensburg and continues reforming the administration and military. By September, the only major siege of Pomerania is the short siege of Stettin, which ends after only six days. The rest of Pomerania quickly swears fealty to their former Wittelsbach Duke. King Frederick sets up camp in Berlin and focuses on training troops there, not expecting to engage in battle until the next year. King Frederick marches into Brandenburg in the late winter, with only a measly force compared to the thousands of men under Franz-Hector's banner. Several inconconclusive battles are fought around Berlin, however, as the year wears on it becomes clear that Franz-Hector has the upper hand in terms of military expertise and strength. Frederick is wounded on March 19 during the Siege of Berlin and is forced to return home to Regensburg. He seems to recover there, but it is a false reprieve, and Frederick falls dangerously ill with what appears to be a wound-related infection. He dies on April 5, after a few weeks worth of being bedridden. Queen Mary I, now sole sovereign, is strucken with grief and sadness, and now has to deal with political instability following her husband's death. Many Bavarian nobles set their ambitions on Mary's throne, and in response, she tightens her bodyguard and develops the espionage web at court in order to best protect herself. Mary I declares that despite her husband's death, the war with Franz-Hector will continue until a suitable peace can be brokered. Franz-Hector I hears of this in 1767, and also continues the war. However, Mary also calls for peace, and officially issues an edict in May, stating that if she is allowed to remain Queen, she will release the former Queen Frances from prison, and marry Franz-Hector. The newly restored Duke of Pomerania hears this message, but decides to wait before accepting peace, fearing that he will be trapped or ambushed by the Queen. War thus continues, but many foresee 1768 as being the final year of warfare. In other news, precipitating the end of war, Queen Mary allows her prisoners Frances and Joan to live in much nicer suites in Regensburg compared to the squalor they had been in.

The efforts come after many years of flagging production and scientific stagnation. Nowhere are these reforms more found than the colonies, where governors have been told to move away from a purely exploitive model to a more productive, economic model. The hope is by freeing up some of the labor force that was once used for exploitation, and use that force in a more efficient capacity, that profits and production would rise. Parliament clamors for continued updates to infrastructure and technology. The Britannic war of succession finally appears to be over with King James officially coronated at the Tower of London as Emperor James of Scotland, Ruler of Britannia and her holdings, Defender of the Faith, Most August.

  • Kingdom of Castile: The Kingdom of Castile sees a slight demographical as immigration from former Spanish colonies for the economic opportunity is on the rise. The Spanish population reaches about 10.5 million, mostly due to the large influx of Spanish immigrants coming from South America The Empire officially begins a reform of the economic system looking to get away from reliance on gold and silver to bail the economy out of crisis from war debt, The bullion is instead geared toward giving the empire a competitive edge in being able to invest millions on a whim in order to drive up investments and production. However, in order to pay off debt, larger taxes are imposed on the wealthier class, with the current monarch starting to become less popular as the King of Castile, who already has been called "A bodacious fool" by the military commander. A meeting within the wealthier class is held later in the year, mostly with nobles, military commanders, etc., to impose a new law to renounce the current tax law imposed by the Castilian monarch. These meetings, however, establish nothing among the wealthier class, with the nobles demanding that the monarch must not tax them if their hard earned money. Instead, the Castilian Monarch decides to impose taxes on the lower class, instead of taxing the more important people of their hard earned money. Peasants, already poor from paying off the nations debt, are being taxed even more by the Monarch, resulting in unhappiness among the lower class. Talks to get the tax repealed are brought up, but only the success of organizing meeting and protests late in the year. The monarch, ignore these pleas and continues to heavily tax the poor and leaves the military up to crush any protests that break out. The monarch sends a royal fiat to the peasantry, which translated into English says "The nobles have worked hard for what they have done, and what you have done, means nothing to Castile and her motherlands." Large protests break out in Madrid, with the intent of getting the Castilian Monarch to lower the taxes on the peasantry of Castile. Seeing these revolts, The Castilian Monarch repeals the law, with him deciding to tax the nobles (again). The nobles again, are enraged. So, a noble named Phillip IV of Toledo, now enraged after the many years of failure to sustain and properly control Castile, secretly an long with the other nobles slowly organize a peasant army to overthrow the current monarch. Phillip IV of Toledo, with his newly recruited peasant army, launch a coup against the current Castilian government, after years of building up tensions throughout the nation. Local militias led by nobles and other supporters of Phillip IV of Toledo. Meanwhile, the Castilian navy begins further development of its new larger classes of ships, churning out first rate flagships for various fleets, and more third rates, and fourth rates with the occasional second rate to augment the smaller patrol fleets the fifth and sixth rates begin to become more standard as light and medium frigates for singular voyages and patrols among other things. The Castilian attitudes on industrialism continue to change but the nobility seems rather unhappy about having to see more common people in major cities. With relatively no sources of power, the natural sources of power, and in some cases manpower are used for the increasing amount of textile mills among other things. The flocking of populations to Northern Spain continues with a mass increase of population in Madrid, Zaragoza, Pamplona, and various other minor cities and townships throughout the north.

A series of forts are constructed along the Eastern Mountains (OTL Bitterroot Mountains), and a network of highways are built across the plains to connect these back to New Munich. Cities based on buffalo hunting are beginning to appear along these highways. As a result, a vast trade route emerges sending these buffalo products north from the plains along the Eastern Mountains, then along the Amerigo River, all the way to the Nehilaw Sachemate. Various books and newspapers are also offered on this route to the Nehilaw people.
  •  The Empire of Britannia: Many ships are modernized and replaced to keep the British Royal Navy a powerful force on the high seas. The Empire enacts a new series of reforms designed to better govern the numerous holdings of the Empire.

Other nation changes include economic reforms to restart the sluggish economy and a greater focus on military technology. The military is updated. A new model for economic production is released in homes of bolstering Britannia's economy, one of the leading economies in the world. The efforts come after many years of flagging production and scientific stagnation. Nowhere are these reforms more found than the colonies, where governors have been told to move away from a purely exploitive model to a more productive, economic model. The hope is by freeing up some of the labor force that was once used for exploitation, and use that force in a more efficient capacity, that profits and production would rise. Parliament clamors for continued updates to infrastructure and technology. The Britannic war of succession finally appears to be over with King James officially coronated at the Tower of London as Emperor James of Scotland, Ruler of Britannia and her holdings, Defender of the Faith, Most August.

  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Bavaria, Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach ten million by 1800. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. Scandinavia reaps the benefits of the war in Spain, dominating the world market. During this period of economic power, industrialization and urbanization see significant rises. Scandinavia is disappointed that the Zulu nation wishes to 'go it alone,' but it understands. Shipping routes to the South African nation are created. Scandinavia works with the Maori on the North island of New Zealand to convince the Maori on the south island that Hamburg does not have their interest at heart. A prominent Maori chieftain in the Ngāpuhi iwa declares that Hamburg has been lying about Scandinavia in order to further their own goals. This chieftain, Pango Hika, who has been working with Scandinavia for a number of years now, rallies the tribes in the northern island in support of Scandinavia. He states that, "Hamburg's harsh words only portray their contempt for Scandinavia and their desire to be a thorn in Scandinavia's side wherever it goes, regardless of Scandinavia's intentions. They care little for the Maori." Several ships are sent to New Zealand to prevent from an invasion by Hamburg.

  • The Nehilaw continue to modernize and advance their interests, as do all vassals. With the restoration of the gift economy following the civil war, many of landlords and nobles are dispossessed of much of their fortunes, while peasants are considerably enriched and placed at an advantage. Nomadic herding becomes less common as more people settle down to farm or to participate in new, more specialized industries such as mining or weaving. Seeking to reduce the economy's dependence on commodities in the export market, the High Sachem begins sponsoring specialized craftsmen from Europe to immigrate and settle down. Many thousands take up his offer, particularly from France. Both luxury goods like casino, furs and ivory and more practical goods like whale oil, lumber and dried cod are traded. The military grows, with the High Sachem seeking to create a small weapons-manufacturing industry to supply it, and sponsoring many gunsmiths to achieve this. With abundant supplies of guano in the nation, gunpowder production becomes an important industry throughout.In the nation's southernmost regions, fertilizer use, mainly based around guano, vastly increases agricultural production, supplemented with the increased use of crop rotations and rest years for fields. Trade with new Austria results in a vast increase of traffic inland to the west. One party, travelling northwest, reaches a massive body of water, accessible by river from the Adelheid Sea (OTL Great Slave Lake). A trading post is established at the East Arm of the lake, which some believe to be a connection to the Pacific. A massive program of expansion inland to reach this lake begins, especially as gold is discovered there.
  • France: Military, navy and economy are built up. The colony continues expanding and growing by 100 sq km among both colonies into the Galapago Islands called Illes d'Neptune. The colonies continue growing as expected. The colony of Nouvelle Rouen continues to expand inland throughout the land corridor given by Cahokie by 9800 sq km. Mining continues in the colony of Nouvelle Orleans. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The king is outraged, for such freedom given to the Rhenish kingdom so much betrayal! In an act of sheer punishment he declares an all-out war against the rebels and the nobles he dispatches a coalition army of around 400,000 troops (from all around the empire) to quell the uprising. in the now called French Borealia, the displacement of small Spanish settlements begin, offering a free ride for them to return back into Castile, and exchange or sell their possessions in the colonies or swear allegiance to the King. The French King warns, that if the HRE gets involved with the Rhenish rebels there will be a blockade to Hamburg's ships and Dutch if needed and an eventual war declaration, We ask them to stay away from the issue in order to not to bring old resentments and avoid further conflicts. France assures the Swiss nation that any intrusion in its territory will prompt the French forces in order to aid the Swiss government, we also prompt Bavaria to join a dual side treaty to protect Switzerland and avoid any of the members of the treaty from influencing it, Italy and Lombardy are invited as well if they wish to do so. a few explorers settle the area of OTL Adelaid after their ship wrecks in the southern Coast of OTL Australia, they name the Outpost Trinity, the Wreckage soon becomes a local trading spot between the french traders and local tribes after the explorers are rescued later in the year.

  • Roman Empire: The Empire celebrates its unprecedented victory in the war against Spain and the liberation of Rome. Roman forces come home to massive applause in the streets and both Emperor Andrew I and the Senate are acclaimed for their victory. Despite this victory, Andrew I is an old man and he is not expected to last much longer. With his son dead, one of his two grandsons is expected to succeed him as Emperor. The Empire does what it can to solidify its gain in Italy, and rebuilds roads, forts, and cities after the destructive war. Trade routes, long damages from the war yet mostly untouched within the eastern Mediterranean, are re-established in order to bring Roman trade power back up to its prime while also expanding Roman influence, as Rome is now one of the most powerful states in the world. Industry slowly starts to build up in the Empire, as people rush to the cities in Greece and Anatolia in order to get jobs at factories, while plants begin to be built along rivers in order to use them for their power. Relations with new nations such as Navarre, Aragon and Mexaca are established in order to expand Roman influence and trade in the world. The military, already with high morale after the war with Spain, continues to train and improve itself, in case of any revolts or invasions by another power. After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. In order to expand upon their influence in Volayacor and the Hesperian continent, the Roman Empire aligns itself towards the Hesperian Confederation and starts to provide them with technical aid and weapons in exchange for political alliegance and trade goods. Italian merchants are integrated into the Roman economic system, learning their trade from experienced merchants and being able to draw upon considerable influence and financial backing.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • Kingdom of Italy: An Italian noble family by the name of Deluca, who once co-operated with the Romans in ages past, has been chosen to be the royal family of Italy. The leading member of the family, Dario, has been coronated as the King of Italy. Most properties formerly belonging to the Spanish royal family is confiscated and granted to the Delucas for their own personal use, while some of it being divided into small pieces of land and given to the poor. Roman forces are garrisoned in Italy to help the new administration govern the land and enforce its new laws. Both the Imperial government and the Italian nobles focus on important cities like Naples, Rome, Florence, Ravenna, Ancona, Bari, and Palermo, realizing that building loyalty and holding those cities are the key to maintaining Italy. Roman military forces train and supply the local Italian forces, many of whom are made up of former Italian soldiers under the Spanish Empire and Italian rebels during the war. As such, integration within the military is difficult and will take some time. The Romans also help with rebuilding damaged military infrastructure and fortifications across Italy. Most of Tuscany, Latium, and Naples are under the administration of the Italian government, and those regions remain the core of Italian administration and power. Italy also starts building a small military, aimed to aid the larger, parent Roman navy when in times of need. Rome, and the other Italian cities also grow at a good rate.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria: In 1768, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is abandoned after 1760 and the new capital is moved to Regensburg. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I, aged 33, and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Bavaria maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. In political news, the King and Queen continue to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils, the separation having occurred in 1668. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg, and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. The Deutsche Diet is created in 1736, and using her powers as Supreme Chancellor of the Curia Bavaria, places the seat of the Diet in Augsburg, where the historic Imperial Diet also sat. Many Bavarians and Austrians are fine with this placement, being far enough away from Bavarian influence which could corrupt the Diet. This new Diet will occupy supremacy over both the Curias Bavaria and Austria, and in essence will act as an Upper House to both regional Curias. Concerning Venezia, the Queen and the Deutsche Diet begin implementing policies similar to the policies King Leopold II adopted after the devastating war on Austria. Specifically, poorhouses are established all over Venezia, the streets are cleaned up, and taxes are lowered greatly as the Deutsche Diet pay for 40% of post-war expenses. In 1761, the Austrian revolt is essentially over, and much of the country is on the road to recovery. The Deutsche Diet is lifted from suspension, and by mid-year, most of the parliamentarians return to work. The King splits Brandenburg and Pomerania between himself and his wife, with himself becoming the Duke of Brandenburg and herself the Duchess of Pomerania. They ignore the fact that Sybille von Wittelsbach is still alive, and continues to press her claim on Brandenburg. Similarly, Franz-Hector I has strong claims on both Pomerania and on the crown of Bavaria through his imprisoned mother, who still remains alive. Now called a Princess, the former Queen Frances is locked up in Passau, along with her eldest daughter Joan and politician Felix Manzkari. The King fears that plots will arise aiming to free her and put her back on the throne, so he amplifies her bodyguard in order to watch over her more closely. The King remains wary of executing her, admitting privately that she is still a god-ordained Queen, and by killing her would angry the Bavarian population. Mary I shares her husbands sentiments and does not even ponder the execution of the Queen. However, Felix Manzkari is given much less leniency and many Austrians call for him to be killed for treason. In other news, the King and Queen work on reforming and rebuilding the military, and encourage mercantile business in the major cities. Franz-Hector and Sybille von Wittelsbach continues raising forces in Neustadt, and hope to invade Bavaria after 1765. Their hopes come to fruition that year, when Franz-Hector I raises a force of 6,000 Hamburgian forces from in and around Neustadt, while the Duchess-in-Exile Sybille tours around Lübeck and raises an extra 3,500. They cross over into Pomerania on June 16, and news reaches the King and Queen the following week. King Frederick knows that the Bavarian military is still very much in tatters after the war, but hopes for the best. He raises a personal militia of only 2,000 men, and decides to issue a series of drafts and conscriptions over the months of June and July. However, many former soldiers and miltiamen simply ignore the drafts and stick with civilian life. Only 3,000 former men re-enter the army and navy. With only half as many men as Franz-Hector, Frederick embarks towards Pomerania with low hopes. Mary I stays behind in Regensburg and continues reforming the administration and military. By September, the only major siege of Pomerania is the short siege of Stettin, which ends after only six days. The rest of Pomerania quickly swears fealty to their former Wittelsbach Duke. King Frederick sets up camp in Berlin and focuses on training troops there, not expecting to engage in battle until the next year. King Frederick marches into Brandenburg in the late winter, with only a measly force compared to the thousands of men under Franz-Hector's banner. Several inconconclusive battles are fought around Berlin, however, as the year wears on it becomes clear that Franz-Hector has the upper hand in terms of military expertise and strength. Frederick is wounded on March 19 during the Siege of Berlin and is forced to return home to Regensburg. He seems to recover there, but it is a false reprieve, and Frederick falls dangerously ill with what appears to be a wound-related infection. He dies on April 5, after a few weeks worth of being bedridden. Queen Mary I, now sole sovereign, is strucken with grief and sadness, and now has to deal with political instability following her husband's death. Many Bavarian nobles set their ambitions on Mary's throne, and in response, she tightens her bodyguard and develops the espionage web at court in order to best protect herself. Mary I declares that despite her husband's death, the war with Franz-Hector will continue until a suitable peace can be brokered. Franz-Hector I hears of this in 1767, and also continues the war. In 1768, Franz-Hector issues a compromise to Queen Mary I, stating that he will end all hostilities and allow Mary to remain Queen if: A.) The war ends and Frances is released from prison and installed as Queen Mother; B.) Brandenburg and Pomerania be returned to Sybille and Franz-Hector respectively; C.) The ducal title of Pomerania remains reserved for heirs to the throne; and finally, D.) Franz-Hector marries Queen Mary, and their children and heirs will be under the House of Wittelsbach-Westphalia. Franz-Hector names his compromise the Peace of the Baltic (in German: Ostseefriede) due to its drafting in Stettin, on the coast of the Baltic Sea. Franz-Hector then amends the peace and adds an extra provision, stating that: E.) Salzburg, Tyrol, and Venezia be relinquished from Austrian control. Venezia and Tyrol will regain autonomy, while Salzburg will once more be a Bavarian territory. Mary I hears of Franz-Hector's Peace proposal and its five provisions in early February, and she spends the week carefully reviewing it with the help of her advisors. On March 2, she issues a response. Being especially concerned about the fifth clause, Mary I states that she will only accept the treaty if all Bavarian vassal realms are given a much greater degree of autonomy, to such a degree that vassalage is abolished in Bavaria. She explains her stance more in depth: Austria, Brandenburg, Pomerania, and Venezia will continue to be apart of the Kingdom of Bavaria, but not as Bavarian vassals, but as constituent states under a unifying Bavarian banner. In other words, Austria, Bavaria, Brandenburg, Pomerania, and Venezia will all be equal political realms under an administrative union. Furthermore, a legislature or curia will be created in every state in addition to Bavaria and Austria. In an action similar to Franz-Hector, Mary I assigns a name to her proposal. The March Peace (in German: Märzfriede) is a much more popular proposal, and it becomes celebrated in many areas of Austria, Brandenburg, and Pomerania. In Austria, many parliamentarians agree that political equality is more favorable than owning Venezian or Tyrolean land. Franz-Hector I agrees to Mary I's amendment and travels to Regensburg to conduct diplomacy. He arrives to meet the Queen in an uneasy procession on March 11. A ceasefire is announced that day, however, word spread around the country of an impending peace, so a de facto cease fire occurred weeks ago. The two debate and argue for four straight days, finally coming to an agreement on March 15. The two combine their treaties and formally issue the March Peace that day, ending the war. However, the treay being issued does not mean its provisions are put into law. Rather, the treaty legally obligates both Mary and Franz-Hector to institute the provisions through their own administrative and governmental power. In essence, the treaty does not automatically execute the provisions, but requires all signing parties to execute the provisions themselves in a timely matter or risk instability and the resumption of war. So for this reason, the marriage of Mary and Franz-Hector and the creation of the political union will most likely not occur in 1768, due to their time-taking natures, and will probably occur in 1769. However, due to the easiness of it, Frances is released from prison and made Queen Mother at the age of 67. Her daughter, Joan, is named the Queen's Sister, for her upcoming, sister-in-law relationship with Mary I. The rest of the year is calm, with the country glad that the war fought was only a limited war fought in the northern provinces of the country, with little life and property lost.

The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In exploratory news, while much of Bavaria is immersed in Civil War, the RBSC decides to fund expeditions into Indonesia, particularly around Borneo and the tribelands of Negara Dipa. In 1732, the investors of the RBSC put forth a combined total of 500,000 reichstalers in the construction of ships, training of private troops, and a military expedition into Negara Dipa next year. Conflict is expected to occur in coming decades.
    • NewBavariaFlagNew Bavaria: The colony of Nei Baiern continues to expand in population. Katharinas-Hafen, Franznacken, Bayreuth, Nei Regens, and Regenholz all expand by the end of the year. Houses and shops in each settlement continue being built. Jülichsberg and Wittlesberg both expand. Nei Baiern expands 2000 km. The militias and shops are developed. A small logging and fishing town is founded north of Wilhelmsbaum island, on the mainland. The settlement, mainly populated by Saxons, comes to be called Regenholz. News of the Austrian rebellion reaches Borealia. Many colonial Austrians are delighted at the notion of Austrian resurgence, and consistently poke fun at their Bavarian relatives, but ultimately, the situation is of little concern to them, as both groups live in relatively harmonious economic and social equilibrium.

  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The Ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate.The Civil war ends with teh capitulation of Konigsberg and the signing of the treaty of Vilnus, which divided the territory between the reformed Republics of Prussia and Lithuania, and Poland. As a result, much of the old nobility is tried and convicted of high treason and have their lands, titles, and wealth confiscated, and they themselves sentenced to life in prison on an island-prison run by the PIC (not the best of places) or sentenced to work as labourers in Zlatobrezhie. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the number of rebellions in the future. The PIC pokes around near nubimia again, just to get killed off by the natives once more. in other news stuff happens

    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarussia and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase.
  • Netherlands: Now in personal union with Westphalia, the king and queen vow to uphold the current political system and surrenders all the powers stipulated under the Act of common law and the Nassau Act. The current political environment of the Netherlands along with the growing enlightenment literature in the East leads to the growth of the Dutch Enlightened circles particularly in Brussels, Amsterdam, and The Hague. Thinkers such as Adriaan van Hogendrop, and Louis Simon Poullet become leaders of the ideas. Amongst their works are the King and the People, and The Brave New World prove very influential among academic circles, promoting the belief of economic liberty, State of mind and identity and the division of power (based on the works of OTL John Locke). The wealth of the Netherlands continues to grow to pre-civil war levels and it grows at a more sustainable level as the hold over trade and banking is solidified, while the hold over the East India trade Company is finalized. Trade increases substantially as peace remains high throughout the trading routes of the Dutch Empire and as cash crops and spice fetch large prices on the European market. Wallonia and Flanders continue to grow economically. Under the guidance of the new States-General led by Stadtholder Antonie van Namur the power of the Kingdom's legislation is stabilized and amplified allowing greater liberties to the productive and trading sectors. Wallonian steel increases in value again as it picks up. Cultural and scientific development continues in the Netherlands led by the university of Brussels, Frankfurt, and other institutions. Recent innovations and discoveries in the field of biology and microbiology, in addition to work done in Pskov and other nations, greatly increases investment and understanding in these fields. Architecture continues to develop as well as the cities are rebuilt. military and naval expansion continue. More ships of the line are built to help keep Dutch trading lines under control. The Dutch Royal Army stands at 45,000 strong in Europe while the colonies put together reach 35,000 mainly in the East Indies were Indians are recruited. Naval reforms begin. This turn in all Dutch possessions and territories is dedicated to military expansion. We continue to colonize and explore islands of the Pacific Ocean.
    • Netherland's East India Company: With the reorganization of power beginning in the homeland reforms are started in the East Indies territories. Administration is overhauled to bring it into a centralized administration while local autonomy of the Company's vassals is reaffirmed. The Company army begins reforms to create three divisions of the so called Native troops, Indian troops, and European troops. Amongst the reforms put forward efforts to assimilate and convert the Malay and Javanese are ceased and respect of local cultures is assured. Major territorial reforms are passed With Brunei and the Malay peninsula (now Jehore) regaining significant internal autonomy while the cities of Malacca, Singapore, and the eastern part of Brunei remain under direct Dutch administration. Sunda remains under direct rule withe sultan receiving a pension. Southern Sumatra is added to the Dutch East Indies as a result of the war with payurung. The area is reorganized and administration is placed under Batavia. The first coffee plantation in the orient is established in Java.
    • Jehore and Brunei: Economic development continues. The East India Company restores local autonomy to the Malay peninsula Under the treaty of Malacca recognizing the Jehore dynasty as the sultans of Malay. A local Malay regiment is created from company troops to help administer the new sultanate though it remains a Dutch client State. 7000 troops are raised to aid in the war effort, and a fleet of 30 ships is placed under the control of the company.
    • Dutch Africa: The European-educated black elites in Benin are granted greater autonomy as long as they provide the quota of slaves, ivory and other tradable goods. efforts to break Austrian dominance in the Cameroon region begin. The Governor requests that The Hague enforce Dutch interests in the region and secure a deal with Austria at all costs.
    • Guiana: The population of Guiana has steadily grown over the past 100 years reaching a population of 20,000 white settlers and some 12,000 black slaves. Economic growth continues and Paramaribo is declared the colony's capital. Plantations continue to grow and demands to open the interior for further exploitation begin. Culturally the colony remains Dutch-Wallon. Relations with the natives continue to deteriorate as incursions into native land continues and enslavement of the native population begins to work in construction. Efforts to isolate and destroy native culture begin. Exploration of the interior continues as expansion along the new Rhine River (OTL Orinoco River) continue as well as along the Amazon River claiming 500 pixels in total. Expansion of military control into the Interior continues with outposts being constructed to enforce Dutch-Wallon rule over the colony. Dutch Privateers continue operating out of Guiana under false flags. Development of the Guiana Aristocratic culture continues as more land is set aside for plantations. Coffee becomes increasingly popular in the colony. New Antwerp and Paramaribo become major trading cities as the local economy grows following the civil war.
  • Westphalia: This turn is officially dedicated to military expansion in Frankfurt, Nassau, and Luxembourg. Hesse, Jülich, Köln, Lippe, Mainz, Paderborn, Pfalz, Berg, Brunswick-Göttingen, Westfalen, and our remaining vassals, this turn is dedicated to military expansion. Our territories are reorganized, with Frankfurt, Nassau, and Luxembourg remaining personal union with the Kingdom of Westphalia, and in turn the Netherlands, while our remaining territories are designated vassals. Our forces begin training using experience from recent wars, and ships are built in allied ports. Our colonies continue to be supplied through allied territory, although growth is slow. Trade increases with the nations of Oldenburg, Hamburg, and the Netherlands. Trade with our colonies and allies continues. Now that the entirety of the Westphalia region is united, including Frankfurt and Luxembourg, work begins on improving infrastructure between nations. The seed drill, previously invented by Johann Tserclaes, begins to become common place across the nation, greatly increasing the productivity of our agricultural sectors. The surplus in crops allows our nation to experience a large population increase, which continues from the previous year at a steady rate. Seeing the need for increased production of clothing and other cotton related products, the nation begins investing in the domestic woolen industry, since the nation lacks a major partner in India or elsewhere for importing of woolen goods. A heavy fabric cloth known as fustian becomes popular, made from flax warp and cotton weft. Although not as soft as cotton, and more difficult to sew, this fabric is much stronger.

1769

The Carpathian forces successfully rout Vlachian forces, driving them back across the Carpathian Mountains. The leader of the revolt, Laszlo Zápolya, is crowned “King of Carpathia and the Hungarians” and this title is soon recognized by the majority of European courts. Hungarians across the Balkans begin immigrating to the Kingdom of Carpathia, their new homeland.

  • Kingdom of Castile: The Kingdom of Castile sees a slight demographical as immigration from former Spanish colonies for the economic opportunity is on the rise. The Spanish population reaches about 10.5 million, mostly due to the large influx of Spanish immigrants coming from South America The Empire officially begins a reform of the economic system looking to get away from reliance on gold and silver to bail the economy out of crisis from war debt, The bullion is instead geared toward giving the empire a competitive edge in being able to invest millions on a whim in order to drive up investments and production. However, in order to pay off debt, larger taxes are imposed on the wealthier class, with the current monarch starting to become less popular as the King of Castile, who already has been called "A bodacious fool" by the military commander. A meeting within the wealthier class is held later in the year, mostly with nobles, military commanders, etc., to impose a new law to renounce the current tax law imposed by the Castilian monarch. These meetings, however, establish nothing among the wealthier class, with the nobles demanding that the monarch must not tax them if their hard earned money. Instead, the Castilian Monarch decides to impose taxes on the lower class, instead of taxing the more important people of their hard earned money. Peasants, already poor from paying off the nations debt, are being taxed even more by the Monarch, resulting in unhappiness among the lower class. Talks to get the tax repealed are brought up, but only the success of organizing meeting and protests late in the year. The monarch, ignore these pleas and continues to heavily tax the poor and leaves the military up to crush any protests that break out. The monarch sends a royal fiat to the peasantry, which translated into English says "The nobles have worked hard for what they have done, and what you have done, means nothing to Castile and her motherlands." Large protests break out in Madrid, with the intent of getting the Castilian Monarch to lower the taxes on the peasantry of Castile. Seeing these revolts, The Castilian Monarch repeals the law, with him deciding to tax the nobles (again). The nobles again, are enraged. So, a noble named Phillip IV of Toledo, now enraged after the many years of failure to sustain and properly control Castile, secretly an long with the other nobles slowly organize a peasant army to overthrow the current monarch. Phillip IV of Toledo, with his newly recruited peasant army, launch a coup against the current Castilian government, after years of building up tensions throughout the nation. Local militias led by nobles and other supporters of Phillip IV of Toledo. Phillip IV of Toledo and his peasant army have almost captured all of Castile, capturing the monarch this year, being sentenced to treason and gets decapitated. Meanwhile, the Castilian navy begins further development of its new larger classes of ships, churning out first rate flagships for various fleets, and more third rates, and fourth rates with the occasional second rate to augment the smaller patrol fleets the fifth and sixth rates begin to become more standard as light and medium frigates for singular voyages and patrols among other things. The Castilian attitudes on industrialism continue to change but the nobility seems rather unhappy about having to see more common people in major cities. With relatively no sources of power, the natural sources of power, and in some cases manpower are used for the increasing amount of textile mills among other things. The flocking of populations to Northern Spain continues with a mass increase of population in Madrid, Zaragoza, Pamplona, and various other minor cities and townships throughout the north.
  • Great Manchu Empire: With the sudden death of the previous Emperor, his eldest son-in-law Shinji Hiraku succeeded the throne and acquired the position of Emperor of the Manchu Empire. One of his first decisions was to establish a tax system to extract tax from the people but to also make sure that not too much pressure was put upon the peasants. The Emperor was keen on improving the agricultural status in the state, and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Trade with Korea, Imperium of Heaven and Japan proved beneficial as Manchu exported agricultural goods - especially lumber - to these states. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Meanwhile, a large army of roughly 300,000 men was raised to defend the state from any foreign invasion with the soldiers handed light matchlock muskets snaphaunces, and with pikes equipped to be used while charging upon the enemy. Therefore, importance was given to the production of firearms and gunpowder. The infantry was equipped with daggers and swords to be utilised in close combat against the enemy and horses as well as carts were used for the transportation of supplies. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria. The Manchu Emperor, having closely observed the rapid development of Japan, started to promote education to copy the west. Many eunuchs who opposed this decision were put to death and eventually, the system of eunuchs was put down to prevent any power from opposing the Emperor. The Emperor ordered an increase in the teaching of subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and especially on developing new firearms and many firearms imported from Hispania were reverse-engineered to create identical copies. On the orders of Emperor Horiyōshi Yokohama III, the people were now converted to Shintoism and mass Shinto Temples were built. Meanwhile, we purchased battleships from Japan and build up our navy. Major military reforms were brought and a paramilitary force referred to as the Manchu Guards is initiated. The paramilitary comprising of 50,000 guards swore allegiance to the Emperor and were ordered to put down any rebellion swiftly and without mercy. Having toppled Hebei and Shangjing, the Manchu stand firm as the sole representatives of China! Threats by Japan for our persecution of the Shinto people are ignored. With literally don't give a f*ck with the Japanese persecuting non-Shinto with most Manchu Strategists and Generals believing that Japan is digging its own grave for a the great majority of people in Formosa, Saharin and Hokkaido do not believe in Shinto and a large community of Buddhists form a part of mainland Japan.

    • Shangjingkou: The state - being agriculturally strong - had numerous agricultural projects initiated and crops such as maize, wheat, rice, sorghum and soy beans were cultivated and harvested to also make sure that hunger was eradicated from the state, and moreover these goods were exported to other Chinese states. The herding of horses and cattle benefited the Manchu to a great extent with the Manchu being amongst the top exporters of milk in China. Meanwhile, a major port was constructed to handle foreign trade to prevent illegal trading which would otherwise have a disastrous effect on the economy. Major forts were constructed in the North to defend against any invasion that would otherwise sweep through Manchuria.

    • Kingdom of Shijiazuang: With the recent defeat of Hebei following its decision to aid Hispania, parts of the Kingdom of Hebei were officially integreted into the Empire of Manchuria. A paramilitary consisting of 10,000 Manchu was set up and members of the Royal family who were found were executed. The Emperor initiated the start of promotion of Japanese culture and Shinto in order to align the Kingdom of Hebei with Japan and to prevent any future rebellions. Meanwhile, schools were rapidly built and local merchants were made to engage in trade with the Japanese. Lanzhou, Shijuazuang, Hebei and Shangjing are all integrated into a single province known as the Kingdom of Shijiazuang. Meanwhile, trade with the Japanese ports of Yantai and Qingdao comes to a complete halt.   [Mil/Eco Turn]
    • Uighur Khanate: Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon introduced a series of reforms which included support of settlement, ordering the people to put a halt to their nomadic lifestyles. Moreover, Prince Qing Aisin Gioro Dorgon supported the construction of schools in order to spread western knowledge to the rural areas and to educate the people. Meanwhile, a paramilitary consisting of 500 men was set up to maintain law and order in the state, and a system of spies had been established to eradicate opposition to Manchu rule. The native Mongol people were treated generously, but all those that had fought against the Manchu in the war were sent to work in the fields although this did mean that the populace did not take part in cultivation and harvest of crops. To modify the trade route present in the state, Dorgon initiated the start of the road system to link the trade route and by now, up to 5000 men were recruited into the military. Crops were cultivated to feed the poor, and a trade system had been established to trade with the Turkic tribes. Islam is allowed to flourish in Uighur Khanate and no interference is made in the religious matters for fear of the Uighur people rebelling. A major mosque is also constructed to please the Uighur for helping to crush the uprising in Lanzhou. [Mil/Eco Turn]
  • '​'Buenos Aries: The military continues to train loyal troops to fight for the nation. The navy continues to build more battleships. Cities continue to rebuild themselves like European cities. Ports expand to fit more ships. A big library is continuing being built in the capital city. It will store books from around the world. The first university in the country is continuing being built in the capital city. Walls and outposts around the capital city are continuing being built. We Thank Uruguay for accepting the alliance. A border control team is being formed. Farming is our biggest industry. The population tries to mix the ethnicities of Spanish and Native. Also the population increase due to high birth rates. We continue to accept immigrants into our nation that were kicked out of the Inca Empire.
  • Inca Empire: With the death of Apeac III, the nations of Tawatinsuyu and Vorlayacor fall into a Personal Union. The Andean Monarchy remains in control of Tawatinsuyu and her Vassals. The Population of Tawatinsuyu hits roughly 16 million. Military, economy and navy are improved. Cuzco Remains the largest City in the nation, with roughly 170,000 people. Other Cities include Peru, Machu Picchu, Chimor, Sican, New Burgandy, Duetchburg, and Wari. Ties between the Inca and Vorlayacor deepen, as the political ideologies of both nations adapt to suit each other. The Cuzco Codes are adopted in Vorlayacor. The Inca also begin to invest in Vorlayacor, encouraging the movement of Inca people into the nation to aid in recovery from the last epidemic. Buenos Noches are built up, each having around 1000 people. Military training between the two nations begins, with a military of 220,000. Navy is also built up, with the navy expanding to accommodate more ships. The Buenos Noches Doctrine is passed in the Inca. With the ongoing rebellions in the Spanish Territory, the Inca increase their military presence in the the newly acquired territory. The government passes a new act, selling land cheap to the Spanish in remote parts of the empire. The hope is that this will led to the Spanish spreading across the empire. The act, which was passed last year, has further displaced Spanish settlers. Another act, selling land to native settlers in the newly acquired Spanish areas, is passed. 25,000 men remain stationed on the border with Osea.With arms coming in from both the Romans and Castilians, the Inca military begins to expand. With the Deportation progrom continuing in the Inca and their associated states, the number of Spanish living in the empire sees noticable drops.

Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • NewAustriaFlagNew Austria (Colony of Bavaria): The economy and military improve. Cities in the mountains and valleys continue to modernize their industries, and the expansion of these businesses contribute to the growth of villages along the Amerigo River (OTL Columbia River) as far as Lake Maria (OTL Lac St. Anne). Businesses for manufacturing carpentry, textiles, and metalwork continue to grow, and these commodities are exported to the neighboring French and German colonies by land and sea. The professional army is continually trained, while the forts are expanded and new artillery are manufactured. More caravels and frigates are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands. The university of New Vienna is beginning to generate a new generation of intellectuals and engineers. The first newspapers in Boralia are printed at New Vienna, and are distributed throughout the colony. A synthesized Hispanic-German culture is emerging from the younger generation, and the young men now refer to themselves as Boralians. A novel by Martin de la Venn, published in 1760, first coins this term. However, there still remains a small enclave of pure Hispanics in small, northern villages. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in the northeastern forests. The city of New Munich continues to expand and modernize as a center of commerce. The village of Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City) grows likewise, as it is the biggest city in the eastern frontier. A series of forts are constructed along the Eastern Mountains (OTL Bitterroot Mountains), and a network of highways are built across the plains to connect these back to New Munich. Cities along these highways expand as a generation of frontiersmen arrive. However, expansion is somewhat hindered by frequent native attacks. A vast trade sends these buffalo products north from the plains along the Eastern Mountains, then along the Amerigo River, all the way to the Nehilaw Sachemate. Various books and newspapers are also sold on this route to the Nehilaw people, and thus establishes a close cultural connection. A new exploration mission is sent by William de la Newburg due north from Lake Maria.

Horiyoshi Yokohama IV takes over the empire, and he offers extra trade to France and the Netherlands. Kyoto remains the capital of the Empire. Imperial Shinto is spread more through the empire. The conquered regions are made into a vassal, Saharin. After the victory Horiyoshi gains more popularity, and his birthday becomes a national holiday. In the most important event of the year, Horiyoshi declares the Nihon Theocracy, a new government structure. The emperor is worshipped as the complete god, making him the Kami of Japan. With this new structure, immediately all practice of all religions but Imperial Shinto and Buddhism(for now) is made illegal and those who do not convert are killed. We warn the Manchu Empire to stop their aggression against the Chinese states. Buddhism is illegalized too this year, Shinto is now the only religion that is allowed. Kami Horiyoshi has a son, named Matsuda, who is named Shinkami Matsuda I. We offer an alliance to the Netherlands and France(although I think I already have one with France).

  • Roman Empire: The Empire celebrates its unprecedented victory in the war against Spain and the liberation of Rome. Roman forces come home to massive applause in the streets and both Emperor Andrew I and the Senate are acclaimed for their victory. Despite this victory, Andrew I is an old man and he is not expected to last much longer. With his son dead, one of his two grandsons is expected to succeed him as Emperor. The Empire does what it can to solidify its gain in Italy, and rebuilds roads, forts, and cities after the destructive war. Trade routes, long damages from the war yet mostly untouched within the eastern Mediterranean, are re-established in order to bring Roman trade power back up to its prime while also expanding Roman influence, as Rome is now one of the most powerful states in the world. Industry slowly starts to build up in the Empire, as people rush to the cities in Greece and Anatolia in order to get jobs at factories, while plants begin to be built along rivers in order to use them for their power. Relations with new nations such as Navarre, Aragon and Mexaca are established in order to expand Roman influence and trade in the world. The military, already with high morale after the war with Spain, continues to train and improve itself, in case of any revolts or invasions by another power. After many years, Andrew I honors the promise made by his predecessors and formally integrates Egypt into the Empire as an Archonate, adding its military and navy into that of the Empire and also bringing in Egyptian senators and officials into the Imperial government. In order to expand upon their influence in Volayacor and the Hesperian continent, the Roman Empire aligns itself towards the Hesperian Confederation and starts to provide them with technical aid and weapons in exchange for political alliegance and trade goods. Italian merchants are integrated into the Roman economic system, learning their trade from experienced merchants and being able to draw upon considerable influence and financial backing.
    • ​​Reme: The colonies begin to recover after the war. Most of the colonies weren't directly sacked or occupied by enemy forces, but some cities were shelled and trade routes are of course in disarray. As such, trade routes are rebuilt slowly and new nations and areas to trade with help that effort greatly. Cash crops grown in the climate also help recover that problem, and crops such as cotton, tobacco, rice, and indigo all help the colonial economy. An expanding base of plantation owners, both Roman and Native, help expand the economy as well as local governmental management. Cities like Reme and Patrapolis continue to grow in both economics and population, and such cities become the heart of the colonies. Southern Florida, once held by the Prussians, then the French, and finally the British, is incorporated as part of the colonies. The region is united with much of the north as the region of Seminole, named after the native peoples of the land. Their native rulers and chieftains are, as with all others, brought in as local governors along with the immigrant Roman colonists. As a result of this, the colony begins to grow and expand in the north by 50 sq km.
    • Lutriwita: With the Spanish defeated, the local Spanish administration is deported back to Spain and a small wave of Roman governors and colonists migrate to the island. Luckily, most of the natives are more or less unharmed by the brief Spanish period of occupation, and the Romans do what they can for them in order to civilize them and allow them to contribute to the rest of Roman society. The Roman colonial government tries to do this by missionary work, teaching them Greek and Latin as well as their own native language while also teaching them advanced topics such as construction and material sciences. Meanwhile, Roman merchants and landowners struggle to find a way of creating an economy on the island, although they make some inroads with timber and mining while also beginning to explore limited agriculture. In the meantime, the Romans add to whatever Spanish fortifications were constructed on the island and also station a few ships and troops at the island, in order to protect against pirates, enemy nations, or hostile native tribes. Expansion on the island continues by 50 sq km.
    • Georgia: Georgia continues to move along as a vassal of the Roman Empire. The kingdom follows the Empire and Bulgaria in forming a competent economy and decent population growth. The economy of Georgia grows thanks to wine production as well as more material goods like mining and timber. Trade routes with Gothia and Greece carry these goods to other parts of the Empire and the rest of the world. The armed forces of Georgia, mainly designed to protect the country in case of invasion, stages war games to train themselves and they also establish some hill forts in mountain passes in the Caucasus in case enemies from the Tartary decide to make a play for Georgia. Georgia also more and more becomes the center of Roman authority in the Caucasus region, as it has higher population and more strategic value compared to Armenia.
    • Armenia: Armenia remains quiet, which is good for a region that some speculate is the most dangerous in the Empire. Armenians from the Damascan Sultanate immigrate to Armenia in order to be with their countrymen, and this allows the population and economy to grow. Armenian military forces continue to patrol the border, as the forces of the Muslim Damascan Sultanate surround Armenia on two sides. The Armenian economy grows based on export of material goods such as timber and precious metals.
    • Bulgaria: Bulgaria is a remarkable region of the Empire, as it has been a region of remarkable growth. The population continues to grow slowly as all other regions of the Empire are, and the economy also grows thanks to increased production of sophisticated goods like weapons and material goods like wine and valuable metals. Many of the Bulgarians begin to appreciate the Empire and the benefits that it brings, such as citizenship and expanded economic opportunities. Bulgaria, as the closest vassal not yet an Archonate in the Empire, is the fastest to be integrated, as it lies not far from the main centers of power such as Adrianople and Constantinople. The Bulgarian military, which played a crucial role in the Italian war, continues to train arm itself.
  • Kingdom of Italy: An Italian noble family by the name of Deluca, who once co-operated with the Romans in ages past, has been chosen to be the royal family of Italy. The leading member of the family, Dario, has been coronated as the King of Italy. Most properties formerly belonging to the Spanish royal family is confiscated and granted to the Delucas for their own personal use, while some of it being divided into small pieces of land and given to the poor. Roman forces are garrisoned in Italy to help the new administration govern the land and enforce its new laws. Both the Imperial government and the Italian nobles focus on important cities like Naples, Rome, Florence, Ravenna, Ancona, Bari, and Palermo, realizing that building loyalty and holding those cities are the key to maintaining Italy. Roman military forces train and supply the local Italian forces, many of whom are made up of former Italian soldiers under the Spanish Empire and Italian rebels during the war. As such, integration within the military is difficult and will take some time. The Romans also help with rebuilding damaged military infrastructure and fortifications across Italy. Most of Tuscany, Latium, and Naples are under the administration of the Italian government, and those regions remain the core of Italian administration and power. Italy also starts building a small military, aimed to aid the larger, parent Roman navy when in times of need. Rome, and the other Italian cities also grow at a good rate.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1769, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is abandoned after 1760 and the new capital is moved to Regensburg. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I, aged 34, and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Bavaria maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. In political news, the Queen continues to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg, and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. The Deutsche Diet is created in 1736, and using her powers as Supreme Chancellor of the Curia Bavaria, places the seat of the Diet in Augsburg, where the historic Imperial Diet also sat. Many Bavarians and Austrians are fine with this placement, being far enough away from Bavarian influence which could corrupt the Diet. This new Diet will occupy supremacy over both the Curias Bavaria and Austria, and in essence will act as an Upper House to both regional Curias. Concerning Venezia, the Queen and the Deutsche Diet begin implementing policies similar to the policies King Leopold II adopted after the devastating war on Austria. Specifically, poorhouses are established all over Venezia, the streets are cleaned up, and taxes are lowered greatly as the Deutsche Diet pay for 40% of post-war expenses. In 1769, the Märzfriede is formally entered into law when Mary I and Franz-Hector personally convene the Deutsche Diet and presents the treaties composed by both of them. The Deutsche Diet, reeling from a war that revealed the deep cracks in Bavarian unity, are enthuastic about the law, which would effectively federalize the country and remove Bavaria from a seat of suzerain overlordship. They vote and pass the law into effect on August 30, forming the Crown-Union of Germany (CUG). By August 31, Bavaria becomes a different country. No longer an elderly parliamentary monarchy, Bavaria now hosts a federal (though the word federal may not yet be in the common vernacular) kingdom with politically autonomous member states. The King of Bavaria, whoever they may be, is allowed to remain the King of Austria and Venezia. Furthermore, Venezia is restored to independence when the law is passed. On September 12, Mary I and Franz-Hector are wed in Regensburg, sealing the final provision of their peace compromise.
    • CuriaBavariaFlagCuria Bavaria: The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. Parliament orders the Bavarian Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement the Bavarian Commands and Collegiate Writs into a codified, national law.
    • CuriaAustriaFlagCuria Austria: Work on the Parliamentary Palace in Vienna finishes. A number of 251 Austrians sit in the Austrian parliament.

The settlement, mainly populated by Saxons, comes to be called Regenholz. News of the Austrian rebellion reaches Borealia. Many colonial Austrians are delighted at the notion of Austrian resurgence, and consistently poke fun at their Bavarian relatives, but ultimately, the situation is of little concern to them, as both groups live in relatively harmonious economic and social equilibrium.
    • NewSwabiaFlagNew Swabia (Colony of the CUG): The colony of Neu Schwaben is established in 1750. The colony is situated in the humid, tropical regions of south-central Borealia, and is mostly composed of Spanish-speaking Hispanics, as well as Aztecan and Mayan settlers.

  • The Nehilaw continue to modernize and advance their interests, as do all vassals. With the restoration of the gift economy following the civil war, many of landlords and nobles are dispossessed of much of their fortunes, while peasants are considerably enriched and placed at an advantage. Nomadic herding becomes less common as more people settle down to farm or to participate in new, more specialized industries such as mining or weaving. Seeking to reduce the economy's dependence on commodities in the export market, the High Sachem begins sponsoring specialized craftsmen from Europe to immigrate and settle down. Many thousands take up his offer, particularly from France. Both luxury goods like casino, furs and ivory and more practical goods like whale oil, lumber and dried cod are traded. The military grows, with the High Sachem seeking to create a small weapons-manufacturing industry to supply it, and sponsoring many gunsmiths to achieve this. With abundant supplies of guano in the nation, gunpowder production becomes an important industry throughout.In the nation's southernmost regions, fertilizer use, mainly based around guano, vastly increases agricultural production, supplemented with the increased use of crop rotations and rest years for fields. Trade with new Austria results in a vast increase of traffic inland to the west. One party, travelling northwest, reaches a massive body of water, accessible by river from the Adelheid Sea (OTL Great Slave Lake). A trading post is established at the East Arm of the lake, which some believe to be a connection to the Pacific. A massive program of expansion inland to reach this lake begins, especially as gold is discovered there.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The Ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate.The Civil war ends with teh capitulation of Konigsberg and the signing of the treaty of Vilnus, which divided the territory between the reformed Republics of Prussia and Lithuania, and Poland. As a result, much of the old nobility is tried and convicted of high treason and have their lands, titles, and wealth confiscated, and they themselves sentenced to life in prison on an island-prison run by the PIC (not the best of places) or sentenced to work as labourers in Zlatobrezhie. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the number of rebellions in the future. The PIC pokes around near nubimia again, just to get killed off by the natives once more. in other news stuff happens
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. the Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish 
    • In the United Republic of Prussia and Danzig benefits from the de facto free trade with Croatia begin to show and grow its economy, GDP and average wages, as Prussia recovers from the war. Much of the wealth and lands of the nobility are now free game for the various merchants, who begin fierce competition. While the Union troops have not left by the end of the year, it will be seen as unusual if they are not gone by next year, and elections are not held for a new Bundestag.
    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarussia and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase.
    • Prussia: Infrastructure is improved. Frederick II asks France, Bavaria, and Oldenburg for an alliance. He also asks for peace with the countries invading. We begin converting those who are not Ludwigist into Ludwigists.
      • Erm ... Having the von Hessens somehow rule Prussia is already implausible as it is, so somehow making Prussia into a Ludwigist country is definitely implausible. It seems as if you're trying to recreate Westphalia.
