  • In Great Brython steel continues to make a huge difference in daily Brythonic life and cannons now are made using Cardiff steel. This allows for extra disruption against opposing navies and trade, which causes chaos between colonies and mother nations engulfed in the war. The air furnace continues its rise in popularity, but by now most people have access to this modern luxury. Steam is used more and more, and the engine has now been used by farmers, along with crop rotation and fertilizers.

  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. Scientists heavily test railway engine prototypes all over the nation as this method of transportation becomes viable. The huge factories begin to produce many of the engine prototypes and Meanwhile, the first railroads are laid down all over the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills begin to become more complex and better mechanised as greater amoutn of paper is made. This makes the making of books easy. Shrewd businessmen make sure printing presses are right next to the mills to reduce overheads and increase profits. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. However, the number increases heavily as many begin to lose work. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km (My nation reached Stage 3) by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The nation's propaganda continues to pump out patriotic messages, and helps gear up the people for a full war much closer to home.

The Raja announces the complete union of Sindustan and the Maharajya and also plans to change the borders of Rajputana and the Maharajya slightly. In Java, all Bavarians are allowed to stay if they wish, but if they would like to leave their travel home will be completely funded by the Maharajya.

In Japan, Mount Asama erupts, causing widespread damage.

An earthquake happens in Aleppo, Levantine Kingdom, killing 22,000 people.

The Laki volcano erupts in Iceland. Tens of thousands across the areas bounded by Iceland, Sweden, Prague and Aquitaine die of sulphuric poisoning and ships are forced to stay in port for over a week in the summer due to the haze.

Thanks for the event. I was planning to put it, but I had no idea in how to put all the consequences into words. You might want to extend those consequences until 1785.
I'll deal with the consequences in the respective years...

More and more urbanisation occurs. Bavarian coal begins to be exported to other nations for profit. The young Charles of Wettin is still in good health. Industrialsation continues, with several new chemicals being produced and more elements discovered. In April, John Montigrue invents the first hot air balloon, and travels five miles at almost 3000 feet, before safely landing, making him and his apprentice the first humans to have flown in sustained flight. Many die in Prague and other cities due to the ash falling, crops do poorly this year. If things don't improve in the coming years, aid from Italia may be requested.
    • Didn't you read the 1782 post?...Wait, I have a better idea. Do you think that we could turn this co-incidence into a controversy about who invented the hot-air balloon, like the one that exists OTL about the Wright brothers and airplanes?
    • Yeah. That was my goal, actually.
  • Bavarian Indonesia: Builds military and expands infrastructure. Industrialism booms in Borneo and the outlying areas. The city of Banjarmasin grows exponentially due to the continuing migration to the cities. Indonesia throws its support fully behind Bavaria.

A batch is sent to the United Maharajya as a gift for the ruler of the nation, and potential hopes of fostering a foreign market for the gun should it prove successful. Ethiopia also declares all the unsettled lands within the region surrounded by Ethiopia, Adal, Kitara and Msraq Qäsärä the new territory of Härnät, or "Liberty". It is to be settled by Ethiopians and their vassal allies.

  • Oldeburg, Liege, Indonesia, Kongo, Dutch Persia, Cleves, West Munster, Warqama continue sending military aid. Kongo expands 10,000 sq km inland.
  • Great Brython continues its process of industrialization. Praxedes, gives birth to a second son, Prince Atticus Pugh-Tuch'huelpe of Great Brython and the Selk'nam Haruwin. The naming of the prince, second-in-line for the throne is considered to be an outrage by many staunch conservatives, but Madoc assures them that, as all Kings can, Atticus can chose a different regnal name, something more Welsh. This choice sparks positive feedback from progressives, who applaud the King for his foresight, and thinking of the Selk'nam people and culture. King Madoc IV begins to reach out to his father-in-law about the Royal House of Chongat-Tuch'huelpe-Pugh, as the Selk'nam call the Royal Line of Pugh-Teague-Stuart-Tuch'huelpe. (More commonly Pugh-Stuart). A "cultural ambassador" is sent to the Selk'nam on behalf of the WTC, and he attempts to show Apostolic Selk'nam the advantages of Brythonic culture over Japanese culture. Cardiff Steel begins to grow even farther, and has branched out into two separate companies, Cardiff Steel and Cardiff Weapons, after more and more reliable firearms and cannons are created to enhance the military. The air furnace and steam power continue to help agriculture, along with fertilizers and crop rotation. Population grows and cities like Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Rennes all become urbanized. More radical ideas are formed in healthcare and anatomical studies are formed.

    • Selk'nam Diplomacy: The Haruwin greatly rejoices at the birth of Prince Atticus, almost as joyful as the response to previous birth of Prince Gavin a few years ago (oops, missed that in all the war mess). Great Chief Damasus is overjoyed at the birth of his second grandchild and there is much rejoicing over the choice of a Selk'nam-influenced name for the little prince. Royalist factions in Ona Yagich stage a rally carrying banners which read "Congratulations to Praxedes, rightful Queen of the Selk'nam!" and "Crown Prince Gavin, our future king, has a brother!". In point of fact, the name of the new baby is almost never mentioned among the royalists, as they think the name sounds too K'onipian, preferring a "strong name" like David or John. One newspaper even prints an overheard comment from a royalist leader saying, "why name a prince like a K'onip kelp picker?" Damasus orders the royalist demonstrations dispersed by force and orders a giant banner hung in the main square of Ona Yagich reading, "Welcome Atticus!" Also, the Selk'nam elites are very confused by the talk of the Brythonic cultural envoys. Several nobles, including Damasus himself, express disappointment that in all their talk about choosing between Brythonic culture and Japanse culture, the envoys do not mention Selk'nam indigenous culture. Damasus informs them that he considers the Selk'nam culture to have been divinely appointed as the great Christian culture of the Antarctic regions, and that while many influences from Europe and Asia are welcome in the Haruwin, the cuture itself is of Atlantia.

  • The Apostolic Church has largely established all needed infrastructure to be considered a full-fledged institution. At the head of the Church is the Prime Bishop, who is currently the former Cardinal of Avalon. After the Prime Bishop come Archbishops, in charge of the Church for a nation. After Archbishops are Bishops, and finally Priests. Besides the Most Holy and Venerable Holy Order of St. Maughold of K'onip (to be controlled by the Selk'nam), the Prime Bishop establishes the Holy Order of the Brotherhood of Christian Soldiers of St. David of Wales, a semi-militaristic Holy Order (to be controlled by Wales).
    • The Prime Bishop asks the Primate at Magdeburg to consider joining the One True Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church of Christ, and receiving special status. (Note: The Prime Bishopric will rotate every month or so).
    • Selk'nam Diplomacy: The Selk'nam welcome the election of Prime Bishop Emyr. Brother Eutychianus leaves his position as head of the Maugholdian Order to become Archbishop Eutychianus of the Selk'nam Haruwin. He is replaced as the head of the Maugholdians by his protege Brother Polycarp, which causes a great uproar as Polycarp is and ethnic Yaghan from the Taoist Heartland of Miyako Yagich. Never before has a major figure come from Miyako Yagich's extremely small Catholic commmunity, and as a result of his childhood, Polycarp is reputed to be extremely devoted to missionary work. In his first act as head of the order, he sends emissaries to Avaon to congratulate the founders of the new Davidian order in Wales and offers to help train them in the catechism of St. Maughold.

The Al-Khalil colony expands 1100 sq km and the New Oman colony expands 1000 sq km inland, too. Sultan Abbas oversees Federation economic expansion via industrialization and colonization. The Federation sends lots of aid to the Levant to help them recover from the war and the earthquake. Meanwhile, the great industrial hub of Khor Fakkan improves its steam engine designs to make them more efficient and powering even larger machines, and the new water purification plants created by inventor Ghiyath bin Hadi in the dry Sheikdom of Al Hofuf, are rolled out across the Federation as the new more efficient design catches the attention of many industrialists across the Federation. Ghiyath bin Hadi quickly becomes one of the richest men in the Federation, as the great inventor of Al Hofuf seeks to make the largely dry Federation sufficient in water.

  • Italia focuses on aiding its own peoples and removes many front line army troops on the German front to help at home. A surprise attack on Øresund is launched in return to release some pressure on Bergen and Central Germany with forts around Copenhagen and Malmo bombarded. Supplies and men are also shipped into Bergen. The haze disrupts military operations in the Øresund for a while and the Italian fleet was held up in Bergen. On the plus side they manage to devastate the opposing German forces with a huge naval bombardment on their camps near the coast and around the city. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia continue to use a steam-powered form of the water wheel and develop small cottage businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia.

  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation remains scattered and not prevalent along the Cheyanne tributary, but in the places were it is active, it increases the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continues, as many of the Lakota people now live in larger, multi-room teepees, with two to three rooms, but these rooms are relatively small. The capital town of Wiconiwico U continues to grow, with a palisade-type wall starting construction around the city. Expansion westward toward the Great Plains and the buffalo begins with the expansion of 1000 km westward.
  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: As the war between the three Germanys draws to a close a civil war breaks out in Prussia, Catholics in the South rise up (and the Catholic Regiment joins them) and call other rebels to join them, they mass in force and march on the capital, the first battle of Konigsberg ends with a victory for Adligenrat forces. Marching south again hoping to regain troops the Catholic forces are subdued for two months, the Adligenrat forces mass two armies of 10,000 in the east and west hoping to enclose the Catholic troops. The Catholics head north again hoping to take the capital, a small battle occurs as the rearguard of the Catholic forces are caught by the Adligenrat army. The final battle of Konigsberg ends with a crushing victory for the Adligenrat as the Catholics are encircled and destroyed. Markus Amsel declares the end of the civil war and proclaims a great victory for the Protectorate. The civil war distracts from the monetary problems for the year. However, a mysterious financier has approached the Adligenrat with a proposal, the same financier also has recently acquired Heinrich Corper as a customer and is funding his research into the use of his Puddling Steel. The military is reorganised slightly after the civil war. (mil-turn)
  • Laītawiskas Protektorat: Petrus Eisenberg fills his new government with loyal ex-officers of the Gemeine Magistrats and convenes in the courthouse in Butendiekshof. They set about ensuring a tight legal system to govern the land and make clear their intentions to bring the false Lithuania into the fold. With their aim set in mind they begin re-establishing the Gemeine Magistrats instead naming them after a Latin term as the Censors. (mil-turn)

  • Apache continues expanding 8000 km north.
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. Scientists heavily test railway engine prototypes all over the nation as this method of transportation becomes viable. Railroads continue to be laid all over the nation as thousands of workers are employed. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills continue to make large amounts of paper, with thousand of books being printed. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. However, the number increases heavily as many begin to lose work. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km (My nation reached Stage 3) by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The nation's propaganda continues to pump out patriotic messages, and helps gear up the people for a full war much closer to home. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military as its troops get ready for a new campaign. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. A lot of the armed forces remain poised on the Mysorian border, but word begins to flow through of a possible ending to the war in Europe. The new Raja continues to work with parliament and the newly added areas of former Sindustan are divided into provinces. In Java, all Bavarians are allowed to stay if they wish, but if they would like to leave their travel home will be completely funded by the Maharajya. Talks also begin with the Javans to return them to Mataram, their own nation.
  • Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 9200 km. Sindustan amps up on its army and economy. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei.

Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure.

1784

The start of the year begins as the coldest in recorded history. Nations and peoples north of the Gulf of Mexico, the Pyrennes and the Alps experience the harshest winter on record. Harbours freeze solid and supply lines are cut by snowdrifts. In the spring, meltwaters descend down all of Austria and Germany's rivers causing devastation to numerous cities including Berlin, Dresden, Prague and Vienna. This sends the war efforts of both sides into absolute chaos in the German theatre. Elsewhere, terrible famines descend on India and Egypt due to the disruption of the monsoons by the ash clouds. Over 10% of the population dies of hunger. Mysore, already taxed by the war, revolts in an attempt to form an independent state.

I believe the war has ended. However, it will still cause damage and disruption to civilians and soldiers returning from the front. Callumthered (talk) 10:17, August 5, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, the war ended in '82 ~Von
Yes, and you should really look into what's plausible and what's not. Famine in any place in India (Mysore or Orissa or associated territories) is virtually impossible thanks to trade, industrialization and the large population base. Anyway, if you look at Gulf Stream climate records from the late 1700s, you'll see that most major storm fronts were moving south and east, if we use the Gulf Stream as the center. Most of these storms would be directed into Atlantia, Africa and the Southern Atlantic. Also, Mysore has been German for well over 200 years, and any attempt to revolt at this point would suffer a similar fate to that of OTL British India's revolts.
  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies improve, while agriculture continues developing in Castille. Meanwhile in Aragon and Portugal, industrialization continues, and Meanwhile in Castille, the canal's construction continues. Meanwhile in Portugal, Estevão de Gusmão makes another demonstration before a crowd at the Ribeira royal palace, before the Emperor Pedro III and the Empress Berengaria. The flight lasted approximately eight minutes, covered two miles (3 km), and obtained an altitude of about 1500 feet (460 m). The craft landed safely after flying. (Sorry for the anachronistic measures again.) However by this time, a Bavarian seems to have invented a similar aircraft simultaneously, and made a demonstration in Europe before the Gusmão aircraft's demonstration. Nevertheless, Estevão de Gusmão starts construction of a bigger balloon with the purpose of making flights with humans. Soon manned flights with the Gusmão balloons follow. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 500 sq km and Angola expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, Maranhão expands 8500 sq km.
    • The Germanic Reich proposes an alliance with Iberia.
  • All the Germanic states expand their militaries. Talks of revolution and fiery passion for it begin to rise in the territories, now that the war is over. Tsar-Kaiser Frederick dies of a heart attack, and his son Ludwig VI takes the throne. He vows to avenge the loss as well as regain the territory. However, there is some mild jubilation since there was not a very massive loss of land. However, the loss of life is unforgettable and fresh in the minds of everyone. Grand Duke Heinrich, a very popular noble from West Prussia, was killed in battle, and the national opinion of all their neighbors is soured. Only Wales is remotely trusted, but Russia is still a firm ally. We now turn to Portugal for stronger alliances. Industrialization continues on massive scales, as well as vast militarization. Balloon travel is looked into for possible military options.
    • Forgetting somebody?
  • The Mononobe Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation and in the colony of Miyako. Meanwhile, Okinawa Kingdom builds up its military. Also, Kasodani expands by 3300 sq km, Tojiko expands by 2000 sq km, Tōkaidō expands by 1200 sq km, Miyako expands into OTL mainland Chile by 1000 sq km, and Kazami expands by 500 sq km. Taoism in Kasodani continues to rise in popularity and more Taoist temples are built. More funding is put into science and agriculture. More fertiliser is created and used on fields. More air furnaces are also built. Meanwhile, urbanisation continues in Kyushu, Shikoku and parts of Honshu. More Steam Power is built, and a few water wheels are built. Aid and clean up continues to areas affected by the Volcano.
  • Reiches Großraum Bayern: The nation continues to industrialise. The nation of Bavaria and Saxony continue to grow closer. Montigrue continues to test his balloons, despite hearing of an Iberian version. Diplomats travel to Paris for a conference. The nation becomes increasingly isolationist, many people have begun to shun the idea of war all-together. The Reichstag drafts the Articles of Peace, which outline the new isolationist policies of the people. Infrastructure is upgraded. Industrialisation moves ever closer to Stage 3. Crops fair better this year due to the ash blowing farther east. Prague still is covered in a layer of ash. The Reichstag drafts up a new bill that essentially limits the power of the monarchy, the King can no longer declare war without approval from both houses of the Reichstag. The bill also adds the freedom of speech and removes a state religion, declaring freedom of religion. The right to petition and assemble is also granted. These sweeping changes will take years to accomplish.
  • Kommisariat Hamburg: The administrative region continues to assimilate into Bavaria. The new freedoms are greeted with positive feedback. The military expands, infrastructure is rebuilt.
  • Bavarian Indonesia: Builds military and expands infrastructure. Industrialism booms in Borneo and the outlying areas. The city of Banjarmasin grows exponentially due to the continuing migration to the cities. Freedom of religion is celebrated due to the large non-Christian population.
  • Bavarian Australis: Neu Munchen expands 15,000 sq km. Water Wheels make it to the colony, The Hurem Group takes to pearling and begins exporting the valuable commodity to Europe. Governor Kossack orders the expansion of the capital, Broomestadt. Forts are constructed in the wilderness. Kossack orders more forts built on the frontier. The former royal family decides to settle down. After many years, Kossack retires from the Governorship. Kossack makes plans to return to Bavaria and take the newly formed position of Prime Minister of the Empire. An election will be held in the next year for his replacement.
  • I'm back! Yay! Russia: The Russian Duma politely tells the Ukrainian Nationalists that if they would wish to declare independence from Russia, they should first prove that they have support of the people by winning seats in the Duma, whose elections are held next year. The so-called Ukrainians, who have not been attempted to be assimilated due to Russia's political system, being ATL's analogue of a democratic parliamentary elective constitutional monarchy, and would not really want to do so due to, well, relative stability (kind of hypocritical, if you ask me, that the Anatolians can't revolt, and the Ukrainians can... I mean, I will create that kingdom, but not because of support type things, but because the Tsar, who is from Ukraine, sees this as a sort of advantage for some reason). In any case, Russia mourns the death of their Tsar, but is in a sense relieved, because many blame him for a war that lasted nearly eight years and gave Russia no gains and only losses in population. Russia calls new elections for their tsar, and messenger pigeons are sent all throughout the realm, to hold elections for tsar. The Line of the Last Duke of Riga dies and a grand council is appointed and they decide to ask Russia that they could link the thrones and be equals, The FDC (Federated Duchy of the Caucassus) also petitions the Russian to be equals. The Posadnik, acting with the Tsar's authority during interregnum, accepts. A month later, the Veche of 500,000 people is convened, and a Russian is picked this time, as the Russians do not want to be dragged into another foreign war, a man from Kiev, Anton Gritsai, a very charismatic member of the Duma, and the previous Gorodskoi Posadnik (mayor) of Kiev. He is crowned in the Novgorodian fashion, Anton I Gritsai, Tsar and Lord of Novgorod the Great and Russia, Tsar and Lord of Minsk and White Russia, Grand Prince of Helsinki and Suur-Suomi (Greater Finland), Sovereign of the Caucassus, Knyaz of Riga, Supervisor of Astrakhan, Advisor to the Tatars, Defender and Provider of Norway, Defender of the Saami Sovereign and Ruler of the Russian realm and its colonies of Zalivskaya Novorossiya and Kanada by the power granted to him by the Great Ryad of the People of Novgorod, Minsk, Kiev, Moskva, Kazan, Helsinki, Taalinn, The Valey, Karelia, Sibiria, Astarkhan, Baku, and the Shining Continent. Russia begins to recover from the war, but the war has forced certain industries to evolve quickly, namely the iron industry, and Russians invent the two-piston steam engine if not already done. The Colonists, however, need to pay more taxes than usual...
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The King continues to expand the military, focusing on the navy. Argentium colony expands 5000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 3000 km. Warqama expands 1000 km north.
  • Oldeburg, Liege, Indonesia, Kongo, Dutch Persia, Cleves, West Munster, Warqama continue sending military aid. Kongo expands 10,000 sq km inland.
  • UMSHM: The nation celebrates the end of the war and the narrow victory. However, the bleak winter brings the celebrations to a quick end. The Royal granaries are distributed amongst the most needy, but even so, many thousands die. Some regiments returning from the front are almost completely wiped out by the freezing temperatures, and there are reports of cannibalism. The spring brings welcome relief. However, that too, is cut short by the great floods. Dresden, especially the poorer quarters, which are built on lower ground, is heavily damaged, making thousands homeless. King-Duke Wolfram opens up his lesser palace for the homeless to reside in temporarily, and the city's cathedral is also opened up for the same purpose. As summer arrives, the massive cleanup and rebuilding begins. Farmers are given emergency loans from the Saxon branch of the Bayerische Bankgruppe, and convicts are set to work on the farms. By mid-late summer, all the soldiers have returned home. The majority are given promissory notes for their retrospective pay and are stood down. This leaves many men without jobs, quite a lot of whom are permanently disabled by the war. The "Heroes of Bergen" are brought home. The public treats them to a victory parade, and there is some anger over the government's plan to trade Saxon Norway for "some petty black colony". In the colonies: The war officially ends in the Guinea Schutzgebiet, and the regular troops of the colony (supported by the partisan militias and the Khmer Koch Volunteers) occupy the capital of the Brandenburger colony. They are overjoyed at the news that the government plans on trading "some icy wasteland" for their hard-fought gains. The news of the war's end is greeted with celebrations in Saxon West Africa. The SWA Volunteers return home, having received minimal losses, and are welcomed as triumphant victors. The royal family, on the day of their departure, refer to SWA as "the crown jewel of Saxony". Saxon Australis and the Khmer Koch colony settle back to normal.
  • Cyprus, shocked at the devastation that has shockingly occurred in Europe and closer to home in Egypt, immediately gathers excess supplies and sends ships to southern Italia and also Brandeburg and Bavaria, as well as Egypt. The fertile lands of Bodrum and Attaleia are used to produce foodstuffs also to send to the affected areas. Nea Lefkosia and Nea Larnaka also operate as grain hubs, sending Cypriot produce up the East Coast of Antilia. King Stephanos II sends his personal condolences. Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 2000 sq km, Nea Larnaka is expanded by 2000 sq km and Nea Lemesos is expanded by 2000 sq km. Cyprus' economy grows with the stimulation offered by the disaster. Plans begin to be founded for Attaleia and Bodrum to become part of the Port Plan, which would operate out of a conjunction of Benghazi, Heraklion, Attaleia, Bodrum and various Cypriot ports, in an effort to boost Cypriot trade around the Mediterranean. Ports outside of the nominal land, including Nea Akrotiri, the main city of Nea Lefkosia, Nea Khirokitia, the capital of Nea Larnaka, Nea Kophinou, the capital of Nea Lemesos, and Nea Maroni, the capital of Nea Pafos, are not included in this trading scheme. However, the Cypriots, a seafaring nation, plan to use these ports, manned with native crews, to make these ports effective trading hubs of their respective regions.
  • Crete also sends various foodstuffs and other aid by way of Cypriot ships. The economy is given a boost due to the exports.
  • Cyrenaica can do little in the way of exports due to limited fertile land, but some of the fledgling Cyrenaican Navy is sent to help the Cypriots with trade. The navy expands as more boats are built to accommodate the ships.
  • France: Nouvelle Bourgogne expands 3000 sq km, while La Riviere and Baie d'Eric (Erik's Bay) expand by 1700 sq km inland and Brasilea expands by 3000 sq km inland and Baie d'Notre Dame expands by 1100 sq km. School system is devastated, but the growth starts. However, most of the nation is aware of the school system and use it regularly. It closes any remaining trading with Vinland. After three years of work the Provenzal Chemic Joan Louis Pasteur finally has refined his discovery, and with it has made a Granade type projectile based on potassium, He refers to it as calium ignis, it is supposed to be a three compartment grenade with water, gunpowder and potassium. Military is built up. The King Charles enters victorious to Bordeaux claiming the title of protector of Aquitaine. However, he gives his title to his Nephew Friedrich (Rhaetian) Crown as Friedrich the First of Aquitaine. Balloon air travels are seen as a good option for military growth.
  • Lorraine: Military is built up. School system grows and the nation builds from the war.

A war tax is made to the churches (Germanic, or Catholic) as to begin the reconstruction of the small Kingdom destroyed from the war. While this, settlers from Germany are allowed to remain in the nation if they swear allegiance to Friedrich and Charles, rulers of France. Aquitainian peoples begin reaching out to Nouvelle Bourgogne beginning an influx of peoples to the colonies of Canarien islands and Brasilea.
  • Angouleme: Military and navy are built up. It enters into dynastic union with La Marche as promised by the French king to Duke Louis X.
  • The Arabian Federation expands its colonies with the Zanj coast colony expanding 2500 sq km inland along Lake Kitara's southern coast as new towns are founded on the Lake's southern shores. The Al-Khalil colony expands 1100 sq km and the New Oman colony expands 1000 sq km inland, too. Sultan Abbas oversees Federation economic expansion via industrialization and colonization. The Federation sends lots of aid to the Levant to help them recover from the war, earthquake and the famine in Egypt. The Federation begins importing lots of food from its colonies to help out the Levantines in their famine. Meanwhile, the great industrial hub of Khor Fakkan improves its steam engine designs to make them more efficient and powering even larger machines, which are fuelled by Ghiyath bin Hadi’s water purification plants. One Khor Fakkan industrialist named Alim al Husayn begins using his steam engines to power moving equipment in his factories, pushing machinery along steel tracks like they do in the mines of the Federation. He quickly sells on this idea to other factory owners as track systems for moving goods from coastline factories to the wharf.
  • The Dimurat Kingdom builds up its military as the Kingdom recovers from the war. King Da’ud continues with his plans to invade Persia. Elsewhere, the Dimurati East Africa colony expands 2000 sq km and the nation is industrialized, too.
  • The Qoyunlu Empire works on re-building the military to recover from the war. Emperor Uzun Hassan also begins to merge the Kurds and Qoyunlu ethnic groups together in order to quell the growing civil problems between the Kurds and Turks. However, the stopping of Egyptian grain causes a food shortage in the empire, which further increases the tensions.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military to recover from the war. The crisis worsens in the Kingdom as the drought in Egypt stops most of the food supplies to the areas devastated by last year’s earthquake. Elsewhere, colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 4500 sq km inland as people flee the Levant to start a new life free of the troubles which are currently plaguing the Levant. King Joshua sends in the military to help re-build the crisis-stricken regions of the Levant, and appeals to his allies to send food to help out the famine-stricken Egyptians. The King thanks those nations which have already sent aid.
  • The Sultanate of Baghdad builds up its military to recover from the war. Sultan Abdur Rahim continues to pursue industrialization in his Sultanate as water wheel powered factories spring up near the rivers of the Sultanate. The Sultan sends lots of aid and help to the Levant to aid their recover from their national emergency. However, a small famine occurs in the Sultanate this year, so Baghdad is unable to send as much aid this year as it did last year.
  • The Sultanate of Kuwait, the Maldives, the Republic of Comchellak, the Kingdom of Tanimbarkai, Mangystau and Warsangali all build up their respective economies as the nations industrialize and send aid to the crisis-stricken Levantines.
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: After several years of holdups in the construction of a colonization fleet, Great Chief Damasus announces that he will finally announces the Second Secret of Zhangzi Hg'ich to ease the overcrowding in K'onip. In a speech to a near-rioting crown in K'onip, Damasus announces that Zhangzi Hg'ich's first discovery was not Yagich Rafael, but a luch and uninhabited island in the atlantic between K'onip and Africa. The island is lush, green, and warmer than any place in the Haruwin, but still suited to the climactic preferences of the Selk'nam. It was not revealed as the first secret because, while Yagich Rafael is much les hospitable, the new island is much smaller and can fit fewer people. However, the advent of kelp-farming has revolutionized Selk'nam agriculture to the point where a small island city can be the basis for massive kelp farms in the surrounding sea. The new land will be colonized immediately by five shiploads of people on the Yagich Rafael waiting list, with five more to follow for each of the next three years. However, colonization will stop when the island reaches capacity, as it is so small. Damasus announces that the birth of his second grandchild will be memorialized by naming the colony Yagich Atticus. While many K'onipian pundits say that this will not be enough, potential colonists nonetheless rush to attempt to book passage to the new islands, as it is said to have a much better climate than Yagich Rafael. On September 8th, the first three ships land at Yagich Atticus (OTL Tristan de Cunha). While the islands pastureland is limited, the mountain in the middle of the island is perfect for guanacos despite being ill suited for human habitation. A settlement is constructed on the one large, flat part of the island and named Madoc and Praxedes on the Sea, after the parents of the colony's namesake prince. Many in Ona Yagich find this cumbersome and list the settlement in records as "M.P.S." (M.P.S. is located at the site of OTL Edinburgh of the Seven Seas ).
  • Selk'nam Diplomacy: Maugholdian emissaries are sent to Magedeburg and Brandenburg, opposing capitals in the recent war, seeking the entrance of both into the new Apostolic Church. Brother Polycarp, as head of the Maugholdian order, believes strongly that the nations of Europe can be more at peace if they once again unite under a reformed but united Christian faith, rather than splintering into national churches in protest of the excesses of Catholicism. He alsos seeks continued protection for the Maugholdian monastery in Magedeburg and permission to build anouther in Germanic territory. (Saxony and Brandenburg, please respond - this is a sincere effort by the way, and workable given the current state of religious affairs in German areas. However, I would also note that responses to this effort will not affect the conduct of the Sek'nam Government as Brother Polycarp acts only for the Maugholdian order and not for either the Selk'nam state OR the Selk'nam Church which is under a separate authority structure.)
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. A suitable engine is decided upon and is planned to be implemented all over the nation. Railroads continue to be laid all over the nation as thousands of workers are employed. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills continue to make large amounts of paper, with thousands of books being printed. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. Yet with the famine, hundreds of thousands make their way to the colonies in Amazonia. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km (My nation reached Stage 3) by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The nation's propaganda continues to pump out patriotic messages, and helps gear up the people for a full war much closer to home.

A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. A lot of the armed forces remain poised on the Mysorian border, but word begins to flow through of a possible ending to the war in Europe. The new Raja continues to work with parliament and the newly added areas of former Sindustan are divided into provinces. However, there is much unrest in the nation due to the famine sweeping through the nation. Huge amounts of food are imported from the colonies, causing large amounts of rioting. Yet the Raja considers this a necessary evil as he needs to feed his population at home. Millions still die in the nation, and the Germans are blamed by the ordinary folk, who think that the Germans might have poisoned the water supply. The government does not clear this up as they believe the people need this to have something to blame. This only goes onto fuel the fires already burning in the nation. In Java, many Matarami officials return and begin to lobby for the island on which Mataram began to rejoin it. This gains a huge approval among the people. Meanwhile in Mysore, pro Orissan rebels are heavily funded.
  • Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 9200 km. Sindustan amps up on its army and economy. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 10,000 km inland and they build up their army. Many Orissans begin to settle in Naya Bihar, which as a puppet state, has more freedom than the colonies. Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure. All nations try to deal with the cold weather and hope for the best.
  • Great Brython continues its process of industrialization. Cardiff Steel and Cardiff Weapons both continue to help this process. The air furnace and steam power continue to help agriculture, along with fertilizers and crop rotation. Population grows and cities like Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Rennes all become urbanized. More radical ideas are formed in healthcare and anatomical studies are formed. The economy grows.
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km, as Tulpung yr Aber also grows 3000 sq km. TheWelsh Royal Coast and Morocco each expand by 10,000 sq km, now that their period of vassalization is completed. Hobyo-Somalia and New South Wales growe their economies and militaries. The Apostolic Church movement begins to catch on in all states, especially in the Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco.
  • The Apostolic Church finalizes its process of districting and other church events largely established all needed infrastructure to be considered a full-fledged institution. At the head of the Church is the Prime Bishop, who is currently the former Cardinal of Avalon. The Christian Soldiers of St. David of Wales, work to establish a secure branch of protection for the Archbishop, and also develops protection for the King, who is viewed as an important figure in the church, since he leads the secular population in a Christian manner.
    • The Prime Bishop asks the Primate at Magdeburg to consider joining the One True Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church of Christ, and receiving special status. (Note: The Prime Bishopric will rotate every month or so).
    • The Primate of Magdeburg welcomes the diplomats cordially, but he and the rest of the Catholic clergy in Saxony are unsure about joining this new church. Does it even have the sacrament of Confession?
    • The Selk'nam Maugholdian emissaries (who are already in Magdeburg - see post) point out that while confession is not universally acknowledged as a sacrament, it is still widely practiced, and that daily confession remains a key tenet of the rule of St. Maughold and as such Maugholdian brothers and priests are requied to attend daily confessions. They also note that is is still universally praciticed and treated as necessary in the Selk'nam lands. While the church does have overarching leadership and some basic positions, it allows a great deal of latitude to local branches. Most Selk'nam religious decisions are made by the Archbishop of Ona Yagich, not the Prime Bishop of the Apostolic Church.
    • The Prime Bishop points out that we are all Catholic churches (The Roman Catholic and Catholic Apostolic Churches), but that we both know of the difficulty in following a religion that claims to have a "voice of God on earth." We both seem to acknoledge that the Roman traditions often times outweigh the Biblical teachings of Christ. He does also recognize Confession as one of the utmost important rites of the Church, and notes its prominence in the Apostolic services, but says it lacks a visible element in which Communion and Baptism both share. He finally shows how the Church recongnizes all Roman Catholic Sacraments as Rites.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Aid is sent to nations affected by the harsh winter, including Lakota, Brandenburg, Bavaria, and France. Steam power and water wheels are incorporated in the southern part of the Empire. Chemistry is investigated and researched. Chorotega and Boruca continue build-up as trade hubs and industrial leaders. Chichen Itza and Tenochtitlan, as well as other major cities in the Empire, urbanize. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia, especially Brandenburg. The Juun family continues setting up schools.

  • Apache continues expanding 8000 km north.
  • Italia continues to repair the damage from the earthquake. Some food supplies are sent to Bavaria and Saxony while aid is also sent to Egypt. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia continue to use a steam-powered form of the water wheel and develop small cottage businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also

1785

PMII1785
An earthquake strikes the French colony of Nouvelle Bourgogne.

Colder temperatures continue to plague Europe with severe food shortages in the British Isles, France, the Netherlands and the German states. Coupled with the power of the pointless war, many people grow discontent with their autocratic or corrupt rulers many of whom are not in touch with the people.

Saxony does not have autocratic rulers, just putting it out there.
Bavaria no longer has an absolute monarch. The nation has undergone a change to a constitutional monarchy with a lot more power to the people. A war like the past one cannot happen again. France is a constitutional monarchy since the revolt of 1614.
Wales has a Parliamentary Monarchy (and has since its inception, since its government is based directly from the English Kingdom, which collapsed in the 1500s.)
Seriously? Are you mods trying to spark revolutions in these nations without even knowing the proper grievances to use against them? Besides, isn't Wales a good democratic federation? ~Viva
Its just setting the scene... This string of events started the French Revolution OTL.
Pray tell, where will this revolution start? Europe has no autocracies. We are constitutional monarchies. And the war ended three years ago.
Plus, there have been remarkably few wars following the Great Arabian-Ethiopian War in 1720, and that one war with the crazy German dude trying to take over Europe. Their lives have been getting better, and the wars fewer and government smaller. There is actually nothing for the people to complain about. Except the cold that is. ~Viva
  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies improve, while agriculture continues developing in Castille. Meanwhile in Aragon and Portugal, industrialization continues, and Meanwhile in Castille, the canal's construction continues. Meanwhile in Portugal, Empress Berengaria dies, and is succeeded on the kingdom of Castille by her son, Afonso, who in Castille, is crowned as "By The Grace of God, Alfonso XVI, King of Castille, Toledo, Jaén, Cantabria and Murcia, Prince of Galicia, Duke of Huete, Pastrana, Peñafiel, Soría and Villalba, Marchess of Auñón, La Adrada and Malagón and Count of Alcaudete, Bañares, Castrojeriz and Villalobos". Meanwhile, Afonso's eldest son, José, is married to Leonor Álvarez de Los Cameros, daughter of Garcia VIII Álvarez de Los Cameros, Marchess of Los Cameros in Castille. Meanwhile, the developments of balloons continue and the first accidents also happen. In other notes, an inventor named João Figueiredo travels from Faro, in Portugal to Huelva, in León in a hydrogen gas balloon. Meanwhile, the Brandenburger offer is received, and after some time considering it, Portugal accepts. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 500 sq km and Angola expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, Maranhão expands 8500 sq km. Meanwhile in Rio da Prata, a university is founded in Valparaiso. Meanwhile in Índia, Diogo Gonçalves founds the "Sociedade Asiática", to enhance and further the cause of Oriental research, this society being comprised of some thirty Portuguese residents of Cambaia.
  • The Mononobe Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation and in the colony of Miyako. Meanwhile, Okinawa Kingdom builds up its military. Also, Kasodani expands by 3300 sq km, Tojiko expands by 2000 sq km, Tōkaidō expands by 1200 sq km, Miyako expands into OTL mainland Chile by 1000 sq km, and Kazami expands by 500 sq km. Taoism in Kasodani continues to rise in popularity and more Taoist temples are built. More funding is put into science and agriculture. More fertiliser is created and used on fields. More air furnaces are also built. Meanwhile, urbanisation continues in Kyushu, Shikoku and parts of Honshu. More steam power is built, and a few water wheels are built. Aid and clean up continues to areas affected by the volcano.
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Yagich Rafael expands by 1000 sq km, Yagich Atticus expands onto the small neighboring islands which they call Praxedes Yagich (OTLNightingale Island) and Madoc Yagich (OTL Inaccesible Island) for a total of 18 sq km of expansion (I'm working with small islands - that's all the land there is, round however you wish). Each of these two islands is populated by half a shipload of people whose mission is to establish the two smaller islands as guanaco and Rafael Bread farms for the larger settlement on Yagich Atticus. Yagich Atticus itself receives new shiploads of settlers and is quickly becoming a bustling town based on the increasing population, small size of the island, and dependence on kelp farming. Great Chief Damasus announces the construction of 20 new naval vessels, ten of which will be permanently stationed in Yagich Rafael, and ten of which will sail out of Yagich Atticus. "With these ships," the Chief says, "none will say that the Antarctic waters, from Atlantia to Yagich Rafael, are not the birthright of the Christian Selk'nam Haruwin." Brother Polycarp ramps up Maugholdian missionary activity in the Taoist areas surrounding Miyako Yagich, much to the frustration of the local nobles, and to the dismay of Brother Eutychianus, who as head of the Selk'nam church has loftier ambitions and is not of a mind to expend time and energy on fight with a largely allied local community. However, Polycarp also order the Mugholdians in Mageduburg, the Aru Islands, and Rio da Prata to recruit more heavily from among the locals, resulting in the revitalization of the Overseas Maugholdian community. A shipload of Maugholdians is also send to offer humanitarian aid to Nouvelle Bourgogne.
  • Ethiopia continues to expand its military, economy and infrastructure, including those of the vassals. The colonies of Dähnnät and Täsfa are expanded by 325 km, the colony of Borona is expanded by 1100 km, and the colony of Msraq Qäsärä is expanded by 2600 km, while the colony of Mogas is expanded by 25 km. Yorubaland expands its borders by 10,000 km.
  • France: Nouvelle Bourgogne expands 3000 sq km, while La Riviere and Baie d'Eric (Erik's Bay) expand by 1700 sq km inland and Brasilea expands by 3000 sq km inland and Baie d'Notre Dame expands by 1100 sq km. School system is devastated, but the growth starts. Military is built up
  • Lorraine: Military is built up. School system grows and the nation builds from the war.
  • Carthage expands 10,000 sq km. Military is built up.
  • Leptis: Military is built up and school system continues growing. The expansion starts southward of the empire by 10,000 sq km.
  • Numidia: Military is built up and school system continues growing. The expansion starts southward of the empire by 10,000 sq km.
  • Occitania: Military is built up and school system continues growing and navy expands.
  • Tyrol: Military is built up and school system continues growing. Tyrol is divided in two districts, Rhaetian and German district: the Germans occupying the north while the Rhaetian, the south.
  • La marche: Military is built up and school system continues growing.
  • Zululand: Military is built up The expansion starts by 10,000 sq km to the north.
  • Muiscas: The military is built up and the navy expands. Expansion toward the south starts at 10,000 sq km.
  • Nouvelle Judea: Military and navy are built up as Moises 1st, traders such as Ibn Jeshua, continue working for the French navy and the Judean navy, respectively.

  • Haut Bourgogne: Military and navy are built up.
  • Basse Bourgogne: Military and navy are built up.
  • Picardy: Military and navy are built up.
  • Aquitaine: Military and navy are built up.
  • Angouleme: Military and navy are built up.
  • Reiches Großraum Bayern: The nation continues to industrialise. The nation of Bavaria and Saxony continue to grow closer. Montigrue continues to test his balloons, despite hearing of an Iberian version. Diplomats travel to Paris for a conference. The nation becomes increasingly isolationist, many people have begun to shun the idea of war all-together. The Reichstag drafts the Articles of Peace, which outline the new isolationist policies of the people. Infrastructure is upgraded. Industrialisation moves ever closer to Stage 3. Crops fair better this year due to the ash blowing farther east. Prague still is covered in a layer of ash. The Reichstag drafts up a new bill that essentially limits the power of the monarchy, the King can no longer declare war without approval from both houses of the Reichstag. The bill also adds the freedom of speech and removes a state religion, declaring freedom of religion. The right to petition and assemble is also granted. These sweeping changes will take years to accomplish. The nation suffers its coldest winter on record, food supplies begin to dwindle. If things do not improve within the next few years, Bavaria may be forced to call for foreign aid. Kossack arives in Munchen and is sworn in to his new position as the first Prime Minister of Bavaria. Due to the Articles of Neutrality, and the public's outcry from the last war, the Reichstag votes to not enter the war unless Wales seizes a part of European Netherlands. The King is regretful that he cannot aid his allies but with the devastating winters, illnesses and a nearly bankrupting war, the Bavarian people cannot send aid.
  • Kommisariat Hamburg: The administrative region continues to assimilate into Bavaria. The new freedoms are greeted with positive feedback. The military expands, infrastructure is rebuilt.
  • Bavarian Indonesia: Builds military and expands infrastructure. Industrialism booms in Borneo and the outlying areas. The city of Banjarmasin grows exponentially due to the continuing migration to the cities. Freedom of religion is celebrated due to the large non-Christian population.
  • Bavarian Australis: Neu Munchen expands 15,000 sq km. Water Wheels make it to the colony, The Hurem Group takes to pearling and begins exporting the valuable commodity to Europe. Governor Kossack orders the expansion of the capital, Broomestadt. Forts are constructed in the wilderness. Kossack orders more forts built on the frontier. The former royal family decides to settle down. After the elections, Karl Alder is elected as new Governor, supplies are sent to Bavaria.
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The King continues to expand the military, focusing on the navy. Argentium colony expands 5000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 3000 km. Warqama expands 1000 km north. The government rebuilt the damage of the war.
  • Oldeburg, Liege, Indonesia, Kongo, Dutch Persia, Cleves, West Munster, Warqama expand army and economy. Kongo expands 10,000 sq km inland.
  • Great Brython is generally upset by their leadership's lack of success in the most recent war in Europe, but Madoc IV points out that the Brythonic culture is one of resilience. During the cold-weather spell, effective use of cold-resistant crops like cabbage, broccoli, carrots, lettuce, and spinach, avoid food shortages. Top advisors to the Crown, and many members of Parliament push for a war to boost spirits in the nation, and the Netherlands is singled out as the most practical nation to fight - the Welsh king has a claim to the Dutch throne dating back to the time where the Dutch attacked the Welsh. The War of Brythonic Retribution, as planners call it, catches steam in Parliament, and the King decides to declare war. Immediately, Brythonic naval vessels carrying Welsh troops cross the Channel from Dover. The Dutch have a hard time sending out their navy, due to the icy ports. Breton troops also sail to attack the Dutch coastline. Cannons and other innovations made possible by steel assist in a number of victories over the inferior, and weary, Dutch troops.
    • Madoc IV secretly offers the Dutch peace in one year for Chile and Argentium.
    • Didn't you fight in the War of the German Succession? If so (and I apologise if you didn't) wouldn't your soldiers be exhausted, and your population sick of conflict? And also, by the way, isn't the point of a mod event that it actually happens, not that one manoeuvres a way around it by use of "cold-resistant crops"Callumthered (talk)
    • They fought a little bit Callum, but they got out quite early. But the "cold-resistant crops" thing is BS, they wouldn't simply change an entire nation's agricultural base to these crops and they had no way of predicting the weather either ~Von.
    • Technically, we never fought. (We only sent aid). Furthermore, it is, in my opinion, plausible to switch at least to cabbage. In OTL, cabbage was widely grown in times of frost. Now, add that with the already existing practice of regular crop-rotation, and within one year, its possible. ~ Rex (YOUR SIG IS TOO DAMN LONG AND CODED)
    • Granted, individual farmers with land suited to growing cabbage could make the change. However, as Von said, changing the entire agricultural base of Britain (which, if Wikipedia does not lie, should be wheat and rye) is a little much, I think. Callumthered (talk) 10:38, August 6, 2013 (UTC)
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km, as Tulpung yr Aber also grows 3000 sq km. Militias from De Mor Tir begin raids on Argentium, and reach a good deal of success there, especially when they storm the southern parts of the colony by surprise. In Tulpung yr Aber, Welsh settlers team up with professionals from New South Wales to attack Indonesia. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco each also send troops to fight the Dutch, largely in Congo, while growing their economies and militaries. Hobyo-Somalia and New South Wales grow their economies and militaries. Troops from Hobyo-Somalia focus on Dutch Persia, but also conduct a daring attack on Indonesia.
  • The Apostolic Church's Prime Bishop falls ill while on a diplomatic mission in Magdeburg. He is deemed unfit to return home for now, which leads many to think about the election of the next Prime Bishop. Current contenders is the Selk'nam Archbishop, the head of the Maughold Order, the Cardinal of Avalon, the head of the Soldiers of St. David, and even the Primate of Magdeburg!
    • Continuation of talk with the Primate of Magdeburg continues, with the Prime Bishop's envoy doing most of the work. He attempts to convince the Primate of the benefits of joining together in a common church, which may soon overtake Roman Cahtolicism as the world's main sect.
    • The Primate, after talks with the rest of the Roman Catholic German clergy, kindly turns down the offer. The people are very conservative when it comes to religious issues.
    • Brother Polycarp, head of the Maugholdian Order, asks that he not be considered for the position of Prime Bishop, instead endorsing the candidacy of Brother Eutychianus, the Archbishop of Ona Yagich (and a fellow Maugholdian).
  • Normandy: In compliance with the alliance with the Dutch, as well as the Netherlands' status within the French Confederation, Normandy, Mogadishu, Benin, Oyo, and Beja declare war on Wales. The Royal Council requests the military aid and wartime involvement of Italia, France, Bavaria, Saxony, Brandenburg, and the Icelandic Imperium as compliance with respective alliances and positive relations.
    • The Normans may not declare war without violating a treaty with the Welsh. (Treaty of Nantes, 1703.) Breaking the treaty means you must cede Contenin and Alenc, as well as giving the international community reason to strike you.
    • To All: The Netherlands attacked Wales before. The Welsh only want to take back an amount of land similar to that the Dutch and Yorkish took from us. In fact, our algorithms turned out to be about the same as when the Dutch attacked the Welsh. To Italy: We ask that you stay neutral, in light of your conflicting alliances. To France: You are our oldest ally. We will gladly allow French regions of the Netherlands to be respected with French rulers. To Bavaria, Saxony and Brandenburg: I apologize to all of you OOC for the war I kinda put you all through.
    • France D: We want to be assured that no land will be taken from The Netherlands in Europe, If there is we will aid them, Also, France inspects a treaty between the Welsh and the Dutch to ensure an end of the conflict.
    • Norman Dip: The Norman government assures allied and friendly nations that a war with Wales will be in all of Europe's best interest, and will remove the influence Wales already has and a possible growth of influence if the war against the Netherlands is successful. The government once more pleads the allied nations of Europe to join the war.
    • Mali: Mali, and the vassals of Gabu, Mossi and Wolof, sent military aid to Normandy and the Netherlands.
    • Damn it. You guys are seriously putting me through hell. I have much to gain from both sides, but I just fought the Netherlands, so I'm sticking with Wales. However, I ask that everyone else remain neutral. If France join our side, we'll give you traditionally French territory from OTL like Wallonia.
  • UMSHM: The food shortages continue to negatively affect the population. The colonies ship in as much food as they can in lieu of taxes. Combined with the widespread unemployment of former soldiers, the people are not particularly happy. Some small underground cells begin distributing pamphlets, which (unfairly) blame King-Duke Wolfram for the mess. In Anhalt, the Annists are up in force, spreading pamphlets about how the probems are due to foreign, non-Roman Catholic influences. Upon hearing of the potential for the King-Duke to plunge the nation into another conflict by assisting the Netherlands, the public in Saxony and in Anhalt create a massive uproar. Huge public protests occur outside the palace and the Landtag, forcing them (regretfully) not to assist the Normans in the Dutch War.
  • Cyprus continues to send aid to Europe, but slows some of the aid down, in order to divert some of the aid to Nea Lefkosia, impacted by the earthquake in nearby Nouvelle Bourgogne. Aid from Nea Lemesos and Nea Lefkosia also reach it, and rebuilding begins in the west of the colony, most severely affected. In amidst all the carnage, Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 4000 sq km and Nea Larnaka is expanded by 4000 sq km.
  • Crete expands its economy.
  • Cyrenaica expands by 10,000 sq km into the desert.
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 1000 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 1000 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar. The eighth improved wooden sawmill is built in Northern Myanmar, with a production of 200 kg lumber daily. The eighth iron workshop is built in Southern Myanmar with 100 kg of iron made daily. The 3rd air furnace is built. More rifles are built. More schools are built. Allows Bengal refugees to move into Myanmar. The army begins training vigorously. The Court continues wondering why is everyone warring against one another.
  • Germanica continues to become a war machine, one that is tolerated by the people, for the cries for vengeance and blood remain strong and fresh in the hearts of all true Germanics. Germany takes a very militaristic stance against its neighbors (save Russia) and the remnants of East Brandenburg and West Prussia are annexed to Brandenburg. Denmark, Norway, and Sweden send some few fresh soldiers, possibly hoping to avenge losses and regain control over Luxembourg for the one true Reich. Neu Berlin drafts plans for the Freissen Line (Maginot Line-esque wall of defense on the Italian borders with available technology) and construction begins in the early summer. Berlin is restored with great effort, and the last private riches owned by nobles or loyal citizens arrive in Norway from Neu Mecklenburg, as Saxon control is unwanted. People also flow in from Neu Mecklenburg, but the food shortage during the early winter and spring was not helpful. The arrival of crops and other goods is arranged thanks to the brilliant minds in the Reichstag. The Conservatives begin to lose power in the Reichstag this year, but they still remain in the majority. Mysorean rebellions are placated as they were relatively small anyway.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Aid is sent to Nouvelle Bourgogne, as a show of good faith. Steam power and water wheels are incorporated in the southern part of the Empire. Chemistry is investigated and researched. Chorotega and Boruca continue build-up as trade hubs and industrial leaders. Chichen Itza and Tenochtitlan, as well as other major cities in the Empire, urbanize. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia, especially Brandenburg. The Juun family continues setting up schools. More universities are established in middle class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. Training drills are conducted by the military. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca. Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 5150 km and Haven expands 3100 km.
  • Apache continues expanding 8000 km north.
  • Italia continues to repair the damage from the earthquake. Some food supplies are sent to Bavaria and Saxony. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia continue to use a steam-powered form of the water wheel and develop small cottage businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also
  • Romania, Hungary and Padang work on their economies. Yugoslavia works on its army after their troops return from the war while Greece, Siam and Malacca work on their navies.
  • The Maharajya amps up its army. Many developments in science and military continue while train engines continue to be researched and built. Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km.
  • Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 9200 km. Sindustan amps up on its army and economy. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 10,000 km inland and they build up their army. Many Orissans begin to settle in Naya Bihar, which as a puppet state, has more freedom than the colonies. Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure.

1786

The treaty of Dresden is signed, formally ending the Great War of German Unification and finalizing the border changes between the nations involved.

The famine in Germany, France, the Netherlands and Britain continues. Discontent with foreign rule, Denmark, Sweden and Norway revolt away from Brandenburg.

OK, this is really pushing it. I would just like to say first and foremost that Aquitaine is French, as it should be. I don't see how Denmark, Norway and Sweden are under foreign rule except for the fact that the national capital is Berlin. The vast majority of the Danish, Norwegian and Swedish population share the same religion as Brandenburg. They also speak German, as German has been taught in schools since Scandinavia folded into the Germanic Empire more than 200 years ago. This is far more implausible than calling the European kingdom autocracies, creating BS weather, and you pretending that the war is still going on.
BS weather? A volcano has been covering Europe in ash for the last three years. Of course, there will be famine. I was also unaware of the current status of Aquataine but the Scandinavian countries would want independence especially after that war. I'm trying to be generic and setting the scene for an OTL French Revolution in any of those countries.
Why would they want independence? They actually WON territory in that war.
Scandinavia wouldn't be able to revolt. Germany has too many men to fight with, Scandinavia does not. They'd be steamrolled, and Germany controls the seas there, not the other way around. Scraw would win the fight, even if they attempted to resist. ~Viva

  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk’nam: A whaling ship sailing out of Yagich Rafael notes the existence of numerous small islands west of the colony that seem slightly greener than the main island and would be highly conducive to settlement. The local governor decides that it is imperative that these islands be incorporated into the colony and orders the next two shiploads of immigrants diverted to start settlements there. One main settlement is founded on the island named New K’onip (OTL Île de la Possession), along with smaller villages on islands named Pius Yagich (OTL Île de l'Est) and Maughold Yagich (OT LÎle aux Cochons). Another main settlement is placed on the Island of New Teushen (OTL Marion Island)., with a satellite village on the island of New Tehuelche (OTL Prince Edward Island). Meanwhile, another inhabitable island is discovered south of Yagich Atticus, and named Yagich Gavin, a full shipload of settlers is diverted there to make room for more. (SUMMARY: Yagich Rafael expands 700 sq km onto all of the OTL Crozet Islands and all of the OTL Prince Edward Islands – which are marked on the map. Yagich Atticus expands 100 sq km onto OTL Gough Island). Military buildup continues on the mainland. Meanwhile, on desolate K’onip it has been discovered that a local water plant is good to eat and will grow readily in streams and rivers, even in cold environments. Several Rafael Bread farmers begin actively cultivating this plant in the streams that run through their fields, using techniques borrowed from kelp farming. These ranchers find that the cultivation of the plant is surprisingly easy and drastically improves their yields (and their nutrition) as it grows much faster than Rafael Bread. The plant is called the K’onipin Penguin Lily and quickly becomes popular, later in the year, a new arrival on Yagich Rafael is surprised to find that the plant that the plant also grows there and informs the locals of how it is being cultivated on K’onip. One noble returning from K’onip even finds Penguin Lilies growing near Ona Yagich. (Penguin Lilies are OTL Callitriche Antarctica, commonly known as the Antarctic Water-Starwort, and yes, they are edible and supposedly tasty.)

  • Great Brython negotiates a peace with Normandy, which is again relatively happy with the turn of events and the kindness of the Brythonic King, even though he could've crippled Normandy. By this point into the famine that is destroying Europe, effective use of cold-resistant crops like cabbage, broccoli, carrots, lettuce, and spinach, continue to avoid food shortages. Furthermore, our colonies supply the mainland with lots of food. The navy continues ferrying troops into the Netherlands. The Dutch continue to have a hard time sending out their navy, due to the icy ports. Breton troops also sail to attack the Dutch coastline. Cannons and other innovations made possible by steel assist in a number of victories over the inferior, and weary, Dutch troops.
    • The Welsh offer to buy large shipments of food from the Selk'nam (including kelp, Rafael bread, and the Penguin Lily). We also ask them to send supplies (or military aid) to fight to Dutch.
      • Selk'nam Response: Large shipments of food and arms are sent to De Mor Tir to help supply the colony in the event of Dutch disruption of trade routes. Large amounds of kelp, Rafael Bread and Penguin Lilies are sent to the Brythonic mainland as well. Several Selk'nam farmers are also sent to show the Welsh how to grow Penguin Lilies, which they believe will grow well in the bogs of Scotland and Ireland.
    • We ask Ethiopia to declare war with the promise of Congo, and all states affiliated with Germany to send aid (including Mysore and Orientalia, who can attack Persia and Indonesia).

The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco each also send troops to fight the Dutch and Malians, in Mali and in Congo, while growing their economies and militaries. Hobyo-Somalia and New South Wales grow their economies and militaries. Troops from Hobyo-Somalia focus on Dutch Persia with New South Wales attacking Indonesia.
  • The Apostolic Church's Prime Bishop manages to make it back to Avalon, where he resides. He is still very ill, and plans for the first election of a new Prime Bishop. The official church procedure is that all Bishops vote for any member of the Apostolic Church who has been ordained as a Brother/Friar or above. The current front runners are Brother Eutychianus and the Cardinal of Avalon.
    • With the Selk'nam contingent of priests solidifying behind Brother Eutychianus's candidacy, many high-ranking Maugholdians begin lobbying for Brythonic support. Special attention is given to lobbying the bishops in De Mor Tir and the other Brythonic colonies, noting that it is important that the new church not to seem too focussed on the political center of Brython. "If we are to grow, must be a global church", Brother Polycarp says in a speech to visiting Welsh prelates, "and we must be seen as subservient to God rather than any government."
  • Reiches Großraum Bayern: The nation continues to industrialise. The nation of Bavaria and Saxony continue to grow closer.

Wolfram outright refuses, sparking immense protests in front of the palace and the Landtag, as well as strikes in factories. When some military units begin to show signs of mutiny, the Chief Minister advises Wolfram to abdicate in order to preserve the monarchy. Regretfully, he accepts his situation, abdicates, and sails for retirement in Khmer Koch. Princess Charlotte is proclaimed Queen-Duchess of the United Monarchy, and the public hold great hopes that she will solve the problems "caused" by her father. With Charlotte's accession to the throne, she and her husband, King Leopold of Bavaria, become joint monarchs, and their child will inherit both crowns. Due to this, overtures are made with the Bavarian government to form a federal monarchical union of the two countries into an "Empire of Southern Germany". Initial talks are positive, and due to the current economic and political similarities between the two countries, the merger is set to occur within two years. In the colonies: Saxon West Africa improves its infrastructure in the capital, especially public buildings such as the library and town hall. The Guinea Schutzgebiet begins incorporating Neu Macklenburg into itself. Brandenburger colonists are offered the choice of becoming Saxon subjects and keeping their land and gaining the right to vote on the protectorate's elections; or being exiled.

  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. Scientists heavily test railway engine prototypes all over the nation as this method of transportation becomes viable. The huge factories begin to produce many of the engine prototypes and Meanwhile, the first railroads are laid down all over the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills begin to become more complex and better mechanised as greater amoutn of paper is made. This makes the making of books easy. Shrewd businessmen make sure printing presses are right next to the mills to reduce overheads and increase profits. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. However, the number increases heavily as many begin to lose work. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km (My nation reached Stage 3) by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies.

Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. A lot of the armed forces remain poised on the Mysorian border, but might be soon removed - or so it seems. In the background, the Navy is fully mobilised and sails heavily around Brunei and Southern India. The provinces are finally completely organised. In Java, the calls for the return to their beloved grow louder as the government seems reluctant to listen to the peoples' will. Yet the Maharajya has declared full support for the action.

Florence and a few other cities in central Italia continue to use a steam-powered form of the water wheel and develop small cottage businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works.

After much debate, The Tsardom of Kiev and Ukraine is declared, with borders I will post later, Who's throne is linked to that of novgorod, and whose citizens are citizens of the Russian realm, and in once customs and economic zone with the rest. This is, due in no small part, to the fact that the Tsar, Anton Gritsai, is himself a Ukrainian and sees some sort of alure to the idea. Russia works on military, Industry is built up, many more two-piston steam engines are built for steel mills and factories, being much more efficient that the hydraulic variant. Kanada expands by 8500 sq km.

    • There is great rejoicing in the Selk'nam Haruwin at the election of Prime Bishop Eutychianus. Brother Polycarp refuses to stand for election as Archbishop of Ona Yagich, preferring to remain as head of the Maugholdian order. In a wide open election, a surprising dark horse emerges in the form of Father John-Baptist, the ethnic Tehuelche bishop of the far Northen city of Jenjinkon Lehe. Surprisingly for a Selk'nam prelate, John-Baptist is a common priest and not a member of the Maugholdian Order.
  • France: Nouvelle Bourgogne expands 3000 sq km, while La Riviere and Baie d'Eric (Erik's Bay) expand by 1700 sq km inland and Brasilea expands by 3000 sq km inland and Baie d'Notre Dame expands by 1100 sq km. School system is devastated, but the growth starts. Military is built up. The Germans are offered an alliance to avoid further conflict as the population and the kingdom is tired for such wars, with Germany or other nations.
  • Lorraine: Military is built up. School system grows and the nation builds from the war.
  • Carthage expands 10,000 sq km. Military is built up.
  • Leptis: Military is built up and school system continues growing. The expansion starts southward of the empire by 10,000 sq km.

  • Occitania: Military is built up and school system continues growing and navy expands.
  • Tyrol: Military is built up and school system continues growing. Tyrol is divided in two districts, Rhaetian and German district: the Germans occupying the north while the Rhaetian, the south.
  • La marche: Military is built up and school system continues growing.

  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation remains scattered and not prevalent along the Cheyenne tributary, but in the places were it is active, it increases the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continues, as many of the Lakota people now live in larger, multi-room teepees, with two to three rooms, but these rooms are relatively small. The capital town of Wiconiwico U continues to grow, with a palisade-type wall starting construction around the city. Expansion westward toward the Great Plains and the buffalo begins with the expansion of tribal territory 10,000 km westward, and ends due to the sparseness between the expanded Lakota peoples. Chief Watching Hawk decides that expansion is done for his lifetime, believing that any further expansion for him will lead to his own destruction through vanity and pride. He is 51 years old, and that is Elder status among the Lakota peoples, as few make it past 50.
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The King continues to expand the military, focusing on the navy. Argentium colony expands 5000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 3000 km. Warqama expands 1000 km north. The army continue defending all positions. The royal family travels to Egypt.

    • Don't Worry... I have already posted as the Netherlands, my new Kingdom. And no, not all positions were defended. (And the Royal Family was already captured). ~Rex
    • The algorithm is wrong. You still win land, but not all the land.
  • Normandy: The military expands. Benin and Mogadishu expand by 10,000 sq km. The HBC expands by 5000 sq km. The Royal Council votes on an act which will vassalize Beja and Oyo. The economy expands. In other news, Frances Aquelac offers the Dutch royal family asylum in Normandy if they do not wish to remain in the now usurped Netherlands.
    • The Former Royal Family is currently in Cardiff as political prisoners. On another note, the Netherlands would like to confirm our alliance with the Normans.
    • Normandy had an alliance with the Netherlands, and any further renewal with the new Welsh Netherlands would take time for consideration. The Royal Council also suggests a timely pardon for the Dutch Royal Family, as exile would be more fitting for an entire family composed of many who did very little for the war effort, rather than blatant imprisonment.
    • We assure the Normans that the Royal Family is receiving good treatment in Cardiff. They are living in a small palace in the outskirts of the city. They are technically in exile. They were exiled to Great Brython. We will allow all relatives leave of the exile in ten years, but the immediate family will stay in Cardiff.
    • The Norman Government would like to send a formal company to serve the Dutch family as a sign of solidarity and friendship.
    • You do realize that the current government of the Netherlands is the same (thus the alliance is still in place), but there is a new monarch. The offer is accepted, and the Normans will provide a valet service to the exiled Prince of Orange (his only valid title).
    • The alliance was terminated when the Dutch Royal Family was displaced, and a renewal of the Norman-Dutch alliance may or may not happen in the future. The Norman Government also thanks the Welsh for accepting the offer.
  • Cyprus continues to develop its army and navy. Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 3000 sq km and Nea Lemesos is expanded by 3000 sq km.
  • Crete continues to expand its military.
  • Cyrenaica expands 10,000 sq km into the desert.
  • Kingdom of Saxony (Constituent Kingdom of the Suddeutsches Reich): In preparation for the federation between Bavaria and Saxony into the South German Empire, all of Saxony's vassals are annexed, barring Anhalt and Cologne (which remain nominally independent for dynastic reasons). Queen Charlotte enjoys much better popularity than her father did. This year's better crop and warmer temperatures ensures some improvement of the food crisis. The Queen addresses the veteran unemployment issue by setting up a fund comprised of half a year's taxes from the newly-acquired territory. The interest gained on that fund is to be distributed as yearly payments to veterans who were disabled by the war, and to the widows or children of soldiers who died and who have no other means of income. Although this allowance is small, it does placate most of the anger about veteran unemployment. In the middle of the year, the landtag approves the bill of union, officially creating the Empire of Southern Germany. Elections for Imperial Senat members will occur next year. In the colonies: Saxon West Africa expands 1000 sq km inland along the Kongolese border. The Guinea Schutzggebiet continues to recover from the effects of the war, and to assimilate newly-conquered Neu Meckenburg. Saxon Australis expands 1000 sq km along the coast toward the Welsh colony. In the vassals: Cologne joins the Suddeutches Reich as a second-class member (vassal of a member-state), and the pottery industry continues to thrive. In Anhalt, the formation of the Empire is met with outage by the growing Annist faction. Activities of the Annist Army of Our Saviour and its underground propaganda arms spike when the legitimist Prince declares that Anhalt wil also join the Empire as a second-class member.
    • Prussia sends a gift of a rolled steel statue (only a small one about two stories tall, all we can make at the moment) to the Saxons, recognising Queen Charlotte's devotion to helping the veterans of the war. The statue is also a recognition of Saxony's important place in the new South German State. It portrays a Saxon soldier standing strong and proud, the inscription says (in German, of course):
    • "Shall I march, I will make Saxony proud
      Shall I fall, my nation will tend to me
      Shall I be lost, I will live on in steel
      Shall I be forgotten, think of this as me

      In memory of men who will march in war but never be forgotten
      not by their people, not by their nation, not by their Queen
    • Queen Charlotte is seen as an inspiring figure in Prussia as the newspapers portray her as a reformer and saviour whose thoughts are for the families of recently lost soldiers and for those who will never march again but are soldiers none the less. Her progressive ideas begin to seep into the upper classes of Prussia...
  • Italia continues working on its military after what is know known as the Ten Years War. Some food supplies are sent to Bavaria and Saxony. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia continue to use a steam-powered form of the water wheel and develop small cottage businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also. A young thinker in Bologna gains popularity as he starts to challenge the divine right of the King to rule over these lands. He soon gains a following amongst the masses of Bologna and travels to Venice giving speeches to the people and rallying many to his cause.
    • No-one please interfere, since no-one wishes to take the Revolutionary path then I will blaze a trail of it!
  • Romania, Hungary and Padang work on their economies. Yugoslavia works on its army while Greece, Siam and Malacca work on their navies.
  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: After years of rising debt and disorder, the Adligenrat suddenly has a large amount of wealth, provided by the new Prūsiskan Perôni (Prussian Company, a trading company) which buys all of the current Prussian and Lithuanian factories providing much needed finance for the nations. Heinrich Corper discovers how to create sheets of steel on a large scale by using his puddling steel and his newly inventing rolling mechanism (OTL his steel sheets were used to make a variety of things including the Statue of Liberty) bolstering the Prussian economy once more. A rolling mill is commissioned by the Prūsiskan Perôni to utilise this technology as soon as possible and the secret to the technology is hidden. With money back in the Government, the Adligenrat beings to pay military wages at full again. (eco-turn)
    • Bavaria's new King, husband to the marvelous Charlotte, stands behind her cause, and from is own families coffers, establlises a Veterans Hospital in Prussia, replete with all the "modern" imminities. Bavaria thanks Prussia's commitment to peace and the aid of the wounded.
  • Laītawiskas Protektorat: With new wealth, Petrus begins reforming the legal structure of the nation, ensuring that children are educated by the state and using the Censors to enforce the law. He also makes a new corporate law that is admired by the Adligenrat, which encourages investment into the Protectorate.
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 1000 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 1000 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar.

The fifth air furnace is built. More rifles are built. More schools are built. Allows Bengal refugees to move into Myanmar. The army begins training vigorously. The army is trained even more vigorously and armed to the teeth.
  • Apostolic Church (New Selk'nam Leadership): Prime Bishop Eutychianus is inaugurated in Avalon and in his first blessing to the people says that "Our Apostolic Church is destined to be the great religion of the Atlantic, both South and North, East and West. And one day we know that we can once again unite the peoples of Christendom under a true faith. The old papacy failed to keep the people of Christ together, but let us not descend into war and fighting, with every man having his own church. Instead let us once again work to unite in Christian love, not under the crumbling edifice of the old church, but under the new Apostolic renovation". In a further bid to make the church appear more overarching and less nationalistic, Eutychianus believes that the Church must have some territorial independence and not be tied directly to the monarchy in Avalon. He petitions Madoc IV to grant the church full independent contol of one city in the same way that the old Pope had a sovereign realm. He suggests the city of Rennes in Brittany as the location for the new Apostolic Holy City, believing that locating the Church on continental Europe will aid in his effort to unify the continent's Christian nations. (Functionally, I'm suggesting tiny 200 km sq "joint vassal" that will be controlled by whoever controls the rotational Church leadership at the time - I'd prefer to call it "The Holy See of Rennes").
  • Icelandic Imperium: The Icelandic Imperium continues to deal with the after effects of the Laki Volcano eruption. The effects on the Icelandic people were great, with many dying and crops failing, but it now appears that normaility is returning to the lands. However, after seeing the effects such natural disasters have on his people, Emperor William I orders the creation of a plan to deal with any future eruptions, which mainly revolves around keeping a large food surplus in the main urban areas of the Imperium. The Icelandic Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. The Bering Strait islands under Imperium control begin to explore the lands to their east (OTL Alaska). It is decided that the islands off the coast of this landmass shall be colonised and brought under Imperium control in the coming years. The recent uprisings within Denmark, Sweden, and Norway are followed by the Emperor with cautious optimism. He decides that small recon teams shall be placed among the half-independent populace to report back on a number of key issues. They are also tasked with spreading Scandinavian nationalism within the populace, with the goal of forming Icelandic leaning groups. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are expanded and begin to be modernised. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium. Emperor William I, the only current member of the House of Orange on a throne, requests that the nation of Great Brython release the Dutch Royal Family in exile to his control, so that they can reside in the Icelandic Imperium. He heavily hints that an acceptance of his request will lead to improved relations for the far future, and by extension, a refusal will have the opposite effect. The Icelandic Imperium also suspends the Treaty of Amsterdam until such time that a decision can be reached on future realtions. An offer is sent to Normandy, offering membership into the IITG, otherwise known as the Icelandic Imperium Trade Group which allows free trade and free travel between the two states.
  • Sorry about not posting for the past few turns. My laptop got a fatal virus and I have been trying to fix it. But now that it is done I shall go back to posting normally. Hailstormer (talk) 14:43, August 8, 2013 (UTC)
  • Also, whoever puts the maps up for the five year intervals, could you start leaving my nation on there? This has been happening since I played as the Koori, where every five years my state got put back to the lands it had when I first started playing, and it leads to confusion about land ownership.

    • ​The Germanic Reich and its associated Dominions threaten to cut all ties with Iceland lest it cease to recognize Denmark, Norway and Sweden as independent nations.
    • The Icelandic Imperium recognises those states as independent.
  • Mali: Mali is troubled by the outcome of the Welsh-Dutch War, and following the examples of Normandy and Iceland, the longstanding trade pact with the Netherlands has been terminated. Mali expands 10,000 sq km to the NE. Gabu, Mossi and Wolof contribute to the economy.
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Yagich Rafael expands 900 km sq. Military and economy continue their buildup. Yet another island is found South of Yagich Rafael, which has been encountered by whaling ships before, but never settled due to heavy glaciers. However, a whaling ship makes port there and discovers that the coast actually has many plants, with only about one-fifth of the island being habitable. It is decided that a small village will be built there to allow kelp farms to be built around it. This new island is named Yagich Michael Angelus after Rafael's protege and successor (Yagich Rafael expands a farther 100 sq km onto OTL Heard Island - which is shown on the map south of OTL Kerguelen). Damasus continues to face royalist protests, but non-royalists are also becoming more vocal as some oppose the Welsh war against the Netherlands. This group is especially powerful in K'onip, where anti-Royalists take to wearing orange clothes as a protest in favor of the Dutch. Emissaries are also sent to Iceland, as news has reached Great Chief Damasus that the Icelandic Imperium is spreading on Northern Islands in the sam way that the Selk'nam have spread on Southern Islands. Damasus refers to the Imperium as "our Northern twins" in his message and seeks a close relationship with Iceland. (Iceland, please respond). Anoother Selk'nam emissary, Damasus's cousin and youngest son of the late Great Chief Pius - John-David Gunun'ichicin'i'OnaYagich'in, is sent with a ship to sail Northward and seek relations with other native Atlantian or Antillian powers. While disappointed to find mainly colonial powers in Atlantia, he eventually makes his way North to the Mayan Empire and seeks to forge a friendly relationship with the okther great Native sate in the New World. (Maya, please respond)
    • ​The Mayan Empire: accepts the the diplomat, and opens relations with the Selk'nam, opening two embassies, one in Chichen Itza, and one in Tenochtitlan.

  • Apache continues expanding 8000 km north.
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. The first engine opens up service from Bhubaneswar to Kolkata, hoping to drastically reduce travelling time. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills begin to become more complex and better mechanised as greater amount of paper is made. This makes the making of books easy. Shrewd businessmen make sure printing presses are right next to the mills to reduce overheads and increase profits. With the great amount of paper, logistics is improved. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The nation's propaganda continues to pump out patriotic messages, and helps gear up the people for a full war much closer to home. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military as its troops fight on in Europe, on the verge of stopping. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. In Java, the call for a united Mataram gets the better of the government. On the 23rd of March, they announce their desicion to rejoin Mataram. The war against the Dutch finishes. A lot of the armed forces gather in huge number in secret early on in the year. Their number keep on increasing as veterans of the recent war arrive to bolster numbers. In the background, the Navy is fully mobilised and sails heavily around Brunei and Southern India. Troops are mobilised all over the Maharajya's Unions and colonies, ready for a new war.

1788

The ethnic Turks in the east of the new Byzantine Empire rebel away from the Greek majority state to form their own Turk majority, Muslim state. The new Republic of Turkistan quickly spreads its ideals of Turkish nationalism and liberty and a republican rebellion breaks out in the Empire of Qoyunlu and German Georgia.

Georgia has been Christian since the days of Dean. Not to mention that Georgia is already a republican government.

South Georgia, Georgia on the map is a massive version of Georgia compared to OTL

A new radical sect of Islam starts in Arabia as a group of extremist Muslims begin plotting to overthrow the secular, liberal and blasphemous Arabian Federal government.

Denmark, Sweden and Norway not wanting to be invaded by Germany, and keen to protect their Scandinavian culture and self-rule, offer an alliance to fellow Scandinavians Iceland, proposing a Scandinavian Federation be formed with the countries to try bring Scandinavia back to the glory days of the early 1600s.

Icelandic Imperium Diplomacy: We accept this alliance, and agree that the formation of a Scandinavian Federation would be best for our states. As a result we accept these states into the Icelandic Imperium with autonomy, the level of which, will be decided in the coming year.

I like how the Scandinavian countries revolted from a country where they were part of a country and are now becoming vassals of a small, un-industrialized country that can do little to nothing for them.

No not vassal, they are joining together in a nation to re-create the old Scandinavian empire.

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada prepare their militaries, while agriculture continues developing in Castille. Meanwhile in Aragon and Portugal, industrialization continues, and Meanwhile in Castille, the canal's construction continues. Meanwhile in Aragon, Queen Constança dies.

  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. More services are offered on the new route. The prototype engines continue running on the route, yet need to stop many times to refill up their coal reserves. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills continue to make great rolls of paper and with cheap paper now being sold on the market, this allows many new writers to be able to publish their works onto the market.

Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. After over 50 years of hatred and fueling of the people's rage, the Raja decides it is time for the nation to avenge itself and take back its territories. In a speech close to the frontline, he states: "It was exactly 60 years ago, that we were forced from our homes from over there. Our alliance was broken, our families were torn apart and our women raped and murdered. Now, it is time to avenge. It is time to take back what is ours. It is time to remove the Germans from our lands. It is time to make them feel what we felt. It is time to take new lands for our people. It is time!". Following this, the huge juggernaut which is the Orissan army rolls into Mysore to liberate its people from the harsh ruling of the Germans and their brutal putting down of previos rebellions and war is declared on Germany. The German Philippines are invaded from Brunei and the Navy is used to transport troops. The strong navy engages against the Germans to destroy and blockade their troops, and Lanka is blockaded.
    • Dude, WTF?! We just fought a war on the same side! The Reich sues for peace and offers to return the lands lost in the last war (not in the Philippines though, just Carnatic and Hyderabad) to the Maharajya.
    • My government regarded you as co-belligerents, not allies. Big difference. Plus, I got dragged into the war anyway.
    • Yeah, I was playing Imp's nation for him as he was away for a while. That was me fighting on your side, not Imp. ~Viva
    • Are you going to respond to my offer or not?
  • All over Mataram, huge celebrations are held as people return to their homes on Java. Many old people weep as they see themselves back under the United Maharajyan flag. Yet with the conditions, the government decides on having the capital on Borneo being the interim capital and can be changed later on. Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 9200 km.

  • Riga works on its economy and continues construction of a merchant fleet of its own.
  • Ethiopia expands its military and industry, and those of its vassals. Ethiopia patents the first steam engine (the first steam engine patent was made in 1769), and the first railway going from Addis Ababa to Assawa is under construction (the first trains were built in 1804, but earlier ones existed by the 1780-90s). The colonies of Borona is expanded by 2300 km, Dahnnat and Tasfa expanded by 750 km, while Mogas is expanded by 200 km. Ethiopians continues to seek out more information and culture of the Indians, with many scolars and intellectuals travelling to the United Maharajya to learn and study. A band of Ethiopian explorers from the colony of Tasfa head inland to search for additional points of interest and to find additional native tribes to trade with. The Ethiopian Empire celebrates three hundred years of growth and prosperity, and the Emperor of Ethiopia is ranked as one of the highest approved world leaders living. Ethiopians from across the empire travel to the homeland to witness the celebrations, and with new census information coming forth, the government let's the Emperor know that the vassals are largely Ethiopian in ethnicity. The prosperity of the empire unites the people of all classes, and defeat of drought decades past have permitted the Ethiopians to focus on matters such as their brother and sisters and the concept of pluralcontinentalism which has brought the empire closer as a well-oiled unit and organization. Faith continues to serve as the glue of the empire, and the lack of foreign religions have given the Ethiopians no cause of alarm and distrust.
  • The Dominion of Kenya establishes its first colony, Tumaini, in OTL Iquluit, with the blessings of the Ethiopian government. Kenya expands its borders by 10,000 km to Lake Kitara, and expands its military, economy and infrastructure.
    • That is ridiciously implausible, Kenya forming a colony in Canada? Just no.
    • It's a colony of an industrialized country that already had three colonies in the region. Still not comprehending that? Maybe if it had used another name for the dominion instead of Kenya, it wouldn't have been an issue. ~Viva
    • I have to chime in support here, this timeline's industrial powers are not Eurocentric and holding them to OTL limits on their regions is ASB. Commandante Lemming (talk) 17:24, August 9, 2013 (UTC)
    • Well please tell that to the mods, because I've had to fight tooth and claw to even have the right to establish colonies where I want them. Looking at 90% of the games I've played in, it appears to me the mods are very Eurocentric, either that or just very ignorant. ~Viva
    • The colony is fine. You going ahead of the industrialisation chart is not. Patents are still non-existent and you don't make a steam engine and a train in a year with a railway. ~Scan
    • How are patents non-existent when patents have been around forever? And I understand the railroad, but I'm creating a steam engine that was supposed to have been created twenty years ago. How is that wrong? ~Viva

The Al-Khalil colony expands 1100 sq km and the New Oman colony expands 1000 sq km inland, too. The Federation builds up its military as a massive slave revolt breaks out in the Zanj coast colony, as a man named Salvius leads a large slave revolt uniting many of the tribes of Tanganyika against their Arab oppressors.
  • The Dimurat Kingdom builds up its military as the Kingdom recovers from the war. Elsewhere, the Dimurati East Africa colony expands 2000 sq km and the nation is industrialized, too. King Da’ud dies this year, and Queen Hawwa appoints their eldest child, Princess Qurratulain as Queen of Dimurat. However, this greatly annoys the eldest son, Bashshar who claims the throne for himself. This starts a civil war as the Kingdom descends into chaos as the two sides for succession to the throne. Prince Bashshar seems to has the most support as he defeats his sister’s armies in several different battles.
  • The Qoyunlu Empire descends into chaos as the republican Turk rebels plunge the empire into chaos. The republicans manage to storm the Imperial Palace and they kill Emperor Uzun Hassan and his family and declare the Imperial Qoyunlu line to be no more. The rebels continue fighting the loyal Imperial troops but most defect to the Republican cause, as the Republic of Turkistan sends in its own troops to help destroy the remnants of the Qoyunlu Imperial rule.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military to recover from the war. The crisis gets better as the earthquake stricken regions rebuild anew and Egypt returns to pre-famine levels of agricultural output. However, a new crisis begins following the sudden death of King Joshua. His eldest son, Ezekiel ascends to the throne. However, the real crisis is the King’s infertility and lack of an heir. King Ezekiel meets with his advisors to talk about the matter, and they decide that the most logical route his to have one of Ezekiel’s Italian cousins of the Italian Royal family, inherit the throne of the Levant so King Ezekiel sets sail to Italia to discuss the plans for Levantine succession with the Italian Royal Family. Elsewhere, colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 4500 sq km, too.
    • Italia agrees to the plan although current events in Italia my disturb it.
  • The Sultanate of Baghdad builds up its military to recover from the war. Sultan Abdur Rahim continues to pursue industrialization in his Sultanate, too.

  • The Sultanate of Kuwait, the Maldives, the Republic of Comchellak, the Kingdom of Tanimbarkai, Mangystau and Warsangali all build up their respective economies as the nations industrialize. The King of Tanimbarkai grows annoyed with the growing Federal taxes on his Kingdom and approaches the Empire of Southern Germany to speak with the leaders of the country which helped convert his nation to Catholicism and he offers to have his Kingdom become a German vassal rather than an Arabian one, but he demands that German taxes on his nation reach no higher than 10% rather than the current 30% the Arabs charge. Elsewhere, a large native rebellion breaks out in southern Madagascar in the Republic of Comchellak, and the Republic struggles to hold on to its Madagascan states
  • Cyprus immediately develops close relations with the new Byzantine Empire due to sharing the same ethnic heritage, and wishes to form a sort of loose union between the states some time in the future, namely the Elliniki Enosis (Hellenic Union). In the mean time, various trading agreements and alliances are opened between the two nations. Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 3000 sq km, and Nea Larnaka expands by 3000 sq km.

    • The New Byzantine Empire agrees to forming a Union of the Hellenic States. They also request help in pacifying the rebels to the east.
  • Great Brython's military has wrapped up its war against the Netherlands. The gift of Penguin Lilies is greatly appreciated, and they begin to grow quite commonly in Ireland. The ideas of crop rotation help convince many farmers (especially after the recent food shortages) that diversification is the way to go, and all kinds of new and old plants, mostly wheat, oat, corn, potato, cabbage, lettuce, and beans, become new staples. The famine has ended, but due to effective leadership, very few people have starved. Just about every household now has an air furnace, and steam power helps produce more crops, and drive up food production, which increases population, and increases urbanization. Military grows.
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km and Tulpung yr Aber 3000 sq km for the Welsh government. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries, since they are on the alert after the Malians have been fighting against them in the past three years of war. Hobyo-Somalia grow their economies and militaries. New South Wales grow their economies and militaries.
  • Italia continues working on its military after what is know known as the Ten Years War. Some food supplies are sent to Bavaria and Saxony. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia start to see the rise of the steam engine to turn gears and power basic machinery. Cloth looms are now starting to be automatically run and decent sized factories spring up. The University of Venice has its operations suspended with the events of the year. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also. The thinker, named Michael Vendetti declares that the old monarchy and the current parliament are all fat, rich and corrupt. With the help of a few disgruntled army units he manages to seize control of Fort University and threatens to bombard the royal palace unless the King and the royal family agree to stay under house arrest. The royal family agrees to the conditions and thus, Michel Vendetti is now de-facto in charge over the cities of Venice, Treviso, Padua, Verona, Ferrara and Bologna. The army begins to attempt to retake these cities but rebel-friendly units incite revolts in many other cities. Italia is unable to do anything to prevent New Byzantine form forming but Vendetti declares that the autocracy of the Byzantine Empire should not be tolerated.
    • Byzantine Diplomacy (Mod): The Byzantine Empire assures the Italians that the influence of the new Byzantine Empress, who is herself Italian, has resulted in the Empire's government emulates that of Italia's. The Emperor is quoted as saying "What sense is there in changing a winning formula?"
  • Romania, Hungary and Padang work on their economies. Yugoslavia works on its army while Siam and Malacca work on their navies.

  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Yagich Rafael expands by 1000 km sq. Military and economy continue to expand. Farmers in the Teushen and Tehuelche lands on mainland Atlantia find the Penguin Lilies not only grow in their warmer climate, but flourish. Yagich Atticus continues forming itself into a major city, and the new settlement on the islands of Yagich Gavin takes another shipload of settlers. Great Chief Damasus continues to face protests on K'onip now that ships have stopped leaving for the quickly-filling Yagich Atticus colony. Royalist protesters in Ona Yagich grow restless and use discontentment to adopt a new strategy of calling for Brython's Madoc IV and Praxedes to be made joint rulers in order to bring the Haruwin under Madoc's administrative prowess. However, a large majority outside of the capital do not favor a European-style monarchy. Embassies are set up in the Chichen Itza and Tenochtitlan in the Mayan Empire, and Rekjavik in Iceland. Several Maugholdians return from the Mayan expedition thinking radical thoughts after having been exposed for the first time to leading Kappelist thinkers.
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Eutychianus continues his work to set up and independent church hierarchy, and continues his petitions to Madoc for and independent Holy See in Brittany. A high-ranking Maugholdian named Brother Lando is appointed to an academic position in Eutychianus' court. Lando was part of the team that visited the Maya the previous year and bings with him one of the largest collections of Kappelist literature that anyone in the court has ever seen, including a number of Mayan-language texts never before seen in Europe. Lando quickly establishes himself as sympathetic to Kappelist ideas and advances the claim that, in many ways, the Kappelists exited the Catholic Church for the same doctrinal reasons that Brython and the Selk'nam left several centuries later. He even claims that, "we, ourselves, are quickly beginning to seem more Kappelist than Catholic in our own practices!" This causes a great stir at Kappelism is still officially classified as a heresy by the Apostolic Church. However, Lando as a Maugholdian is smiled upon by Prime Bishop Eutychianus and is often seen at his dinner table. Late in the year, Eutychianus makes a shocking announcement at a Christmas mass: "My brothers, there has been much talk this year about Kappelism, which honestly is not a subject that has been given a great deal of thought by either ourselves or our Catholic predeccessors for some centuries. It was accepted as heresy from time immemoriam, and that was that. When we ourselves broke away from the old Papacy, we did not even bother to consider revising this statement. Now there is talk, and as many of our finest theologians have spent time reading the writings of Kappel and his followers, we have discovered that, in fact, we are not that diiferent after all. Therefore, we have seen fit to disavow the labelling of Mattaus Kappel as a heretic. While separated by centuries, we have left the old Church for the same reasons, and now may be the time for coming together in Christian Unity. I am calling a joint council of Apostolic and Kappelist thinkers, to be convened in Rennes next Easter, and I can only hope that our Kappelist borthers will see fit to join us as friends and talk of the things of Christ."
    • All Countries with a significant Kappelist population are invited to send delegates.
  • Suddeutsches Reich (Saxony and Bavaria): The King and Queen greatly thank the Prussians for their kind gift of last year. Both members continue to recover from the war and ensuing famine. They are also greatly interested by the request of the King of Tanimbarkai.
  • Russia works on its military. Industrial produiction is amped up, and more funds are given to scientists. The death rate is rapidly decreasing as a result of better understanding of anatomy. Novorossiya expands 8500 sq km Kanada by 500 sq km

  • Riga works on its economy and continues construction of a merchant fleet of its own.
  • Icelandic Imperium: The plan to create a food surplus in each major urban area of the Imperium is completed. The military begins to be trained in disaster drills for any future events, mainly focusing on evacuation plans and shelter plans, with preference for the latter. In line with this major shelters are built for the populace to reside in for worst case disasters, which begin to be stocked with food surplus of their own. The Icelandic Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. The Bering Strait islands under Imperium control continue to explore the lands to their east (OTL Alaska). A number of trade posts are created on the islands on the coast, in preparation for near future colonisation. Many new furs are caught and are shipped back to the Emperor himself, who marvels at their greatness, and as a result he becomes infatuated with claiming these new lands. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are expanded and begin to be modernised. The military is put on high alert and a conscription crash programme is implemented to bolster the military ranks, in prepararion for any future conflict. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions begin to spread from Sweden, Norway and Denmark back to Iceland and the rest of the Imperium. A committee is formed within the Imperial Court between the Emperor and the three de facto leaders of the states of Sweden, Norway and Denmark to decide the new system of governence that shall be formed. It is decided that the four states of the Imperium shall have a Minister, who shall have control of domestic issues within their state and shall answer to the Emperor and Imperial Court. These domestic issues shall include such things as agriculture, health, transportation, and local taxes. With the Imperial Court retaining control over such things as defence, foreign relations, and imperial taxes. This shall mean that the four states will stand as equals, under the banner of the Imperium. This is agreed upon, and elections are held for the four new Ministerial positions. An offer is again sent to Normandy, offering membership into the IITG, otherwise known as the Icelandic Imperium Trade Group which allows free trade and free travel between the two states.
    • The Scandinavian countries propose a joint federation with NO leading nation and all four member states being equal.
    • 1: They had the same thing with Brandenburg. 2: Iceland is more Dutch and Scottish than Scandinavian. Even Wales is closer to Scandinavia than Iceland.
    • How is that true when Iceland was founded by Scandinavians? They were mere vassals and you don't just destroy whole ethnicities like you keep claiming.
    • Sorry if there has been some confusion. I was merely using that as placeholder text as I didn't have enough time to write up the changes in detail. I have now changed it to reflect the system that has been created.

1789

A devastating earthquake strikes in remote Western China. Tremors are felt in Delhi, Beijing and Shanghai. Thankfully, few are injured by the initial disaster. However, a huge landslide blocks off the Yangtze River. Over a fortnight later the river bursts the dam and a torrent of water rushes downstream. The cities of Luzhou and Chongqing are wiped out by the "inland tsunami" while other cities (including Nanjing and Wuhan) along the river are subjected to severe flooding and damage. The total death toll is unknown but is expected to exceed half a million. Almost all boats along the river are lost, effectively spliting China in two.

Turkistan continues its new Turkish revolt and claims control of all the ethnic Turk areas, and now begins to consolidate its control over the new territories. The revolutionary Turkish Republic found the Turkish Legion, and the new military force begins to fortify the borders in case of Georgian or Byzantine attacks.

The Dominion of the Republic of Georgia offers Turkistan an alliance of Turkish brotherhood, with the backing of a powerful nation such as Germanica in order to help preserve the independence of Turkistan.

The Persian government after hearing of the Dimurati invasion in secret years ago, unveils its new powerful army built over the years to fight off the expected Dimurati invasion. Shah Ashkan of Persia declares war on Dimurat and his armies invade the west of the Dimurati Kingdom to take back "historical Persian lands". The new Persian army is a highly trained deadly fighting force and grants the Persian empire a +16 military development bonus. The Shah also sends Persian agents to help the Persians overthrow their Dutch masters and have the land return back to Persian rule.

With the invasion by Persia, the Dimurati civil war takes a turn for the worse with large parts of the nation falling into civil disarray. This starts a separate rebellion in Dimurat claiming both of the two fighting royals are unfit to rule the nation and instead the people should rule the nation as a republic.

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada prepare their militaries, while agriculture continues developing in Castille. Meanwhile in Aragon and Portugal, industrialization continues, and Meanwhile in Castille, the canal's construction continues.

Meanwhile, an Imperial decree abolishes the hereditary capitaincies, which means that the former capitães-donatários cease to rule their respective capitanias.
  • Apache: Roads are constructed and improved throughout the kingdom to connect the people and quickly move the army around. The Elders of the Catholic tribes swear that they will only follow the Pope as God's messenger to man.
  • Ethiopia expands its military, economy and infrastructure, as well as those belonging to the vassals. The unity of the Ethiopian people continues to increase, especially in light of the government's establishment of Unity Day in celebration of the Ethiopian Empire's formation and the day of memorializing those dead and wounded Ethiopians who willingly gave their lives for the empire. The government of Ethiopia authorises the invasion of Benin, to secure and control the trade routes neighboring Yorubaland at the vassal's request. The Yoruba made a plead to the Ethiopian government seeking to reclaim the lands of their forefathers from the Benin, and for past grivances the Ethiopians had with them, the invasion is given the go ahead. The colonies of Borona is expanded by 2300 km, Dahnnat and Tasfa expanded by 750 km, while Mogas is expanded by 200 km. The Ethiopian explorers run into the Lakota tribe a year into their journey, and request the chiefs to allow them to stay and learn the ways of the Lakota, their culture, language and people.
  • Kenya expands its military, economy and infrastructure, and expands its colony of Tumaini by 200 km, and expands its own borders by 10,000 km into the wildnesses between itself, Ethiopia proper and Adal.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Steam power and water wheels are incorporated in the southern part of the Empire. Chemistry is investigated and researched.

Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 5150 km and Haven expands 3100 km.
  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation remains scattered and not prevalent along the Cheyenne tributary, but in the places were it is active, it increases the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continues, as many of the Lakota people now live in larger, multi-room teepees, with two to three rooms, but these rooms are relatively small. The capital town of Wiconiwico U continues to grow, with the palisade wall finished around the city. It becomes popular throughout the tribal territories with more palisade walls entering construction, but most of them are only near Wiconiwico U, with more outlying towns not having such walls entering construction. Chief Watching Hawk dies of "Fluid Lungs", the sickness which he had previously beaten. The lesser tribal chiefs come together to elect a new Chief, with Looks To The Sky becoming the Chief of the Lakota Tribes.
  • Russia works on its military. Industrial produiction is amped up, and more funds are given to scientists. The death rate is rapidly decreasing as a result of better understanding of anatomy. Novorossiya expands 8500 sq km Kanada by 500 sq km. While Russia recognizes the independence of the Icelandic Imperium, Russia refuses to recognize the independence of the Scandinavian states, treating them as part of Germany. Meanwhile, due to the recent secession of Ukraine from Russia proper, and seeing as how Russia let it happen as long as they kept the Tsar, The Colonials are starting to consider independence. The pro-independence movement grows, and due to the political system of Russia, where dissent is not only allowed but encouraged, the "Antillianists" manage to get some members into the Colonial Dumas of Kanada and Novorossiya. More newspapers start circulating in Russia, some with various political slants. A social movement calling for more government control of business and redistribution of wealth emerges so that the poorer people can have access to things such as education and healthcare starts to take root, calling themselves "Socialists". The Socialists see the right to public education as protected by the "literacy act" that forced all city-dwellers to have at least one literate family member (presumably so he or she can teach at home) as not going far enough, and start a small movement to extend that right to all citizens (by proposing a free or near-free public schooling system, instead of the current "education loan" system) also call for tax reform in order to facilitate the enlargement of the Duma's responsabilities. The Socialists are led by Leonid Bordyukov, a wealthy businessman who published many works such as "Education of the Masses" and "Not far enough" where he explains his opinions on public education.

While this, for the first in decades, the Inhabitants accept self-rule as a fact, forming the Prefecture of Nouvelle Bourgogne and forming its own senate and chambers. It is in its vast majority to allow further control of Nouvelle Bourgogne by its own people. Brazilea is approached with the same idea, agreeing to form the Prefecture of Brazilea. The Prefectures of Brazilea and Nouvelle Bourgogne would recognize their allegiance to France and would be recognized as French territories with self-rule (Example Canada to Great Britain from 1871 to 1941 although with less descentralization or federalization).

  • Italia continues working on its military after what is know known as the Ten Years War. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia start to see the rise of the steam engine to turn gears and power basic machinery. Cloth looms are now starting to be automatically run and decent sized factories spring up. The University of Venice has its operations suspended with the events of the year. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also. Michel Vendetti continues to outmanuver his opponents by creating fear amongst the populace that anyone could be a King's man or a spy. Thousands of people are sentenced to death for high treason. The royal family is only able to watch on in dismay at the situation. The King hatches a plot to escape with his family and they make it to Istria via submarine and boat. There they attempt to co-ordinate counter-revolutionary forces. Meanwhile across Italia, the cities of Milan and Genoa fall to the rebels with little bloodshed. Upon hearing of the royal family's escape, Vendetti turns his armies east having secured Northern Italy. The royal family is forced to flee to Yugoslavia as the rebel army approaches Istria.
    • King Ezekiel offers the Italian Royal family all the help he can muster to help them. He also offers his relatives to come stay in the Levant to be safe.

  • NOTE: I still have yet to get a mod to finish up my algorithm from my earlier war with the Netherlands. I need help with someone telling me how many pixels the Dutch Empire in total is worth, and then divide them by state/vassal so I can chose my lands that I get. Also, I plan to take the coast of the Netherlands as part of the land I won. For this post, I am assuming that I took Amsterdam to the Hague on the coast, Cleves, Liege, Oldenberg, and West Munster. ~REX
  • Great Brython's King, Madoc IV, begins to talk about the dream of his ancestor, a King of the Netherlands, to unite Great Brython (then Wales) and the Netherlands. He tells of how the union would be beneficial to both the Dutch and the Brythonic, and how the world would be a better place. We welcome our winnings from the last war with the Dutch (Need to be Verified) Unionist Netherlands (Amsterdam to the Hague), Cleves, Liege, Oldenberg, and West Munster. Madoc IV orders a team of Unionist-Dutch to begin a survey of the land around the border of the Netherlands and Unionist Netherlands. While on assignment, the men encounter Dutch troops. The story is unclear, but five of the seven men are injured. Great Brython declares war on the Dutch. This will be a 1v1 war, meaning no outside assistance from either nation. The gift of Penguin Lilies is greatly appreciated, and they begin to grow quite commonly in Ireland. The ideas of crop rotation help convince many farmers (especially after the recent food shortages) that diversification is the way to go, and all kinds of new and old plants, mostly wheat, oat, corn, potato, cabbage, lettuce, and beans, become new staples. The famine has ended, but due to effective leadership, very few people have starved. Just about every household now has an air furnace, and steam power helps produce more crops, and drive up food production, which increases population, and increases urbanization.
  • You can't just say this is a 1v1 war, anyone can join the war.

  • The Arabian Federation expands its colonies with the Al-Khalil colony expanding 2100 sq km and the New Oman colony expanding 2000 sq km inland, too. The Federation builds up its military as the slave revolt in the Zanj coast colony, gets worse as Salvius declares himself King of the Nyamwezi and the new rebel “Kingdom” of Nyamwezi pushes back the Arabian forces from his stronghold of Tabora. Things get worse as the Sukuma people start a rebellion against Arab rule. A smaller revolt takes place in Mlangali, too. Sultan Habib al Hamzah calls an emergency meeting of the Sheik council to discuss this growing problem of revolts in the Zanj coast. However, the meeting is targeted by a group of extremist Muslims hoping to re-establish a powerful Islamic Caliphate empire and to overthrow the secular, liberal and blasphemous Arabian Federal government. The group known as the Abbudin, hatch a plot to blow up the Sheik Council building in Sharjah D.C using barrels of gunpowder left in the basement of the Council building during the emergency meeting about the Zanj rebellions. The Abbudin gunpowder plot is successful and many of the Sheiks are killed in the explosion, bring chaos to the Federation now without a government. Some of the remaining Sheiks try to reform the government but a coup by the Abbudin takes place as the Abbudin fight the remaining Federal loyalists starting a civil war.

Prince Bashshar continues to be victorious but the sudden attack by Persia catches Prince Bashshar off guard, as his territory is surrounded by enemy forces. Wanting to protect the Kingdom from the Persians, Prince Bashshar calls a truce and meets Queen Quarratulain to make peace. Over Queen Quarratulain has her brother killed during their peace meeting, and she assumes full rule of the Kingdom, and starts to fight off the Persians. However, many people now support her other brother Jibril’s claim to the throne and they start their own revolt, which then just annoys the rest of the Dimurati nation causing a large republican revolt. The nation falls into disarray as the civil war render’s Queen Quarratulain government useless.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military to recover from the war. King Ezekiel is shocked by the Arabian, Qoyunlu and Dimurati civil wars, and he assumes leadership of the Muslim bloc. He sends the Levantine navy to try secure the East African colonies and the army marches from Arabah into the Federation to bring stability to the northern federation. Help is also sent to support the Italian royal family, and offers them safety in his Kingdom. Elsewhere, colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 4500 sq km, too.
  • The Sultanate of Baghdad builds up its military to recover from the war. Sultan Abdur Rahim continues to pursue industrialization in his Sultanate, too. However, the powerful Sultan now begins to see his nation as a powerful industrialized one, and begins to question his subordinate position to the Arabian Federation. The latest rebellion he sees as proof he is too good to bow to the Federation, so Baghdad leaves the bloc and declares neutrality, sending troops to the borders to protect from overspill of the Federation civil war, and possible Persian attacks.

Georgia is somewhat distracted by the events occurring around its borders, but the people continue to remain loyal to the government. Georgia decides to support Baghdad in its ventures for independence and propose a mutual defense pact against Arabia, Qoyunlu, or Persia. Meanwhile, the Dominions of Neu Berlin and Neu Prussen hold their first national elections. Heinrich Ritz is the first Prime Minister of Neu Berlin and vows to pledge himself to his people as well as make the nation a great one and worthy of Germanica. The new Reichstag of Neu Berlin is also elected, with most of the seat holders being from the provinces of Erokee, Neu Berlin, Myami, and Eriksmark. The island of Nova Aragona (Staten Island), part of the city of Neu Berlin, is declared to be the new capital of the Dominion. In Neu Prussen, Kaiser Friedrich City is appointed to be the new capitals and the provinces of Neu Prussen (Hispaniola) and Nya Syriac (Nya Syriac) are created. Vinland also elects its leaders, and the few provinces are Vinland (Newfoundland) and Nya Georgia (Labrador). Talk of uniting Vinland and Neu Berlin into one Dominion is discusses, but dismissed. The Conservatives becomes a minority in the Germanic Reichstag and the new Liberal-Nationalist coalition overtakes it.

  • Icelandic Imperium: The military completes its training in disaster drills for any future events, and the disaster shelters are completed. A number of practice drills are run, and prove to be successful, greatly lowering the fears of the populace for any future disasters. The altered Constitution for the Icelandic Imperium is completed and is signed by the four Ministers of the Imperium's states and the Emperor, thereby ratifying it as Imperium law. This Constitution outlays the new system of governence for the Imperium in more detail. The Emperor shall retain his position as head of state of the Imperium. Below this shall be a two tiered system of government. The Imperial Cabinet, which shall be made up of the Emperor and the four Ministers of the Imperium, which shall have control over defence, foreign policy, imperial taxes, and other key issues within the whole of the Imperium. Then below this shall be the individual State Cabinets, for each of the Imperium's states, which shall have control over the domestic issues previously agreed upon within their respective states, and shall be led by that state's Minister. With this change, comes great jubilation, and celebrations are held across the whole of the Icelandic Imperium. The Icelandic Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. The Bering Strait islands under Imperium control continue to explore the lands to their east (OTL Alaska). The number of trade posts on the islands on the coast is increased, in preparation for near future colonisation. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are expanded and continue to be modernised. The military stays at high alert and the conscription crash programme is bringing a huge bolstering of the military ranks. Following the ratification of the new Constitution, the armed forces of Sweden, Norway and Denmark are folded into the Imperium armed forces. These forces within Scandinavia are bolstered with extra troops and begin to patrol and lockdown the Imperium's Scandinavian borders. Any remaining foreign troops remaining within these states from before independence are expelled from the Imperium. Imperium nationalism and and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread through Imperium Scandinavia. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread from Sweden, Norway and Denmark back to Iceland and the rest of the Imperium.

A regiment and three frigates are sent to protect the acquisition. The Kingdom will be required to keep an army and a navy to assist them. A Resident is also sent to assist the King. (Now, don't go saying this isn't plausible. A few decades ago, I sent many Magdeburger misionaries to the Aru Islands (main islands of Tanimbarkai) who successfully converted the royal family and much of the population. They also educated a portion of the population in the German language and culture.) A permanent mail and trade route is set up between Tanimbarkai and Bavarian Indonesia. The latter expands its industry. Bavaria expands its industry, and improves its port facilities in Hamburg. In Saxony, scientists unveil a marvellous invention. With the nation's ever-expanding colonial empire, there has been an increasingly large problem with the slowness of communications. To counter this, two optics students (the brothers Schappe) from the Kassel University have developed a visual semaphore system which, through a series of semaphore towers, allows messages to be sent over hundreds of miles in mere hours. The Schappe brothers patent their invention, and it catches the attention of the Government. Trial lines are set up between Dresden and Munich. The Saxon army is expanded. Overseas: Saxon West Africa expands 1000 sq km inland along the southern border. Saxon Australis expands 1000 sq km along the coast toward the Welsh colony. Bavarian Carthage improves its port facilities. In Anhalt, a spike in Annist violence causes the Prince to send in the army in an attempt to quell the disturbances.

The Sheikdoms of Ajman, Al Qasimi, Musandm and Khor Fakkan and the Emirate of Dubai ally and attempt to re-establish Federal law. However, the power-hungry Sheiks of the rest of Arabia and the Federation’s demands to return to pre-gunpowder plot state borders puts many other states off from re-joining the Federation. The Zanj coast rebellion gets worse as the Arabs lose more territory to the natives and seeing the fall of the Federation, the merchants of the Zanj coast establish their own nations; thus establishing the Merchantile Republics of Mombasa, Zanzibar and Mafia. Elsewhere, the collapse of Federal control brings great disorder to the other colonies as the colonial governors struggle to keep control.
  • The Dimurat Kingdom continues its civil war, but the Persian ceasefire allows Queen Qurratulain on fighting Prince Jibril and the growing republican movement. The Queen has her other five brothers assassinated to stop them trying to claim the throne as well, but her second youngest brother, Prince Fakih agrees to support his sister’s rule as legitimate and is the only brother of the six not killed. The other three princesses of the Dimurati royal family are also brought summoned before Queen Quarratulain and only her youngest sister, Princess Rana disagrees to her eldest sister’s rule and tries to kill the Queen. The vengeful Queen sells her sister Rana into slavery after stripping her of her claim to the throne following her attack against the Queen. Otherwise Princesses Ula and Farah agree that their eldest sister is the rightful Queen and the royal line is established by law as going from Princess Ula, then Farah, then Prince Fakih. Though if the Queen was to marry and have children, then they’d be first in line before the Queen’s siblings. Meanwhile with the Dimurati coastline lost to the Persians, the Dimurati colonial governors in Mtwara are overthrown by a mix of independence-seeking colonists and native Africans. The Republic of Mtwara is declared.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military as part of King Ezekiel’s intervention in the Arabian Federation’s civil war. The King’s forces manage to capture Tabuk this year, and the Levantine forces engage the Abbudin forces as the Levant marches on Medina. Elsewhere, colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 4500 sq km northward.
  • The Sultanate of Baghdad builds up its military as Sultan Abdur Rahim asserts Baghdadi independence. The ever peaceful Sultan sends advisers to the new Republic of Turkistan to establish formal border agreements and an alliance, too. He proposes an alliance to Persia, too.
  • The Sultanate of Kuwait builds up its own military to try help out the federal forces restore order, with Sultan Ibrahim sending lots of support to the Sheikdom of Khafji to help his good friend the Sheik of Khafji restore order. Sultan Ibrahim sends advisors to ensure that Kuwait continues to be allied with Baghdad, and the Kuwaiti-Baghdadi alliance is confirmed.
  • The Maldives builds up its military and sends help to the Federation to help them restore order and Federal control. However, the Sultan now knowing the Federation will probably not be able to help the Maldives, decides to approach the Levantine Kingdom and discuss the Maldives becoming a vassal of the Levant.
  • The King of Tanimbarkai rebels away from Arab rule, exiling all Arabs from his Kingdom back to Arabia. He declares his Kingdom to be a vassal of the Suddeutsches Reich after signing a treaty with them. The King builds up his military and prepares to invade the Arabian Federation’s Kupang colony.
  • The Republic of Comchellak builds up its military to fight the rebels in Madagascar but a series of victories for the Republic allow them to re-capture all of the Sheikdom of Al Nawzalak. But the ten other Madagascan Sheikdoms seem to be lost, and so the Republic ally with a powerful northern native warlord and supply him in return for agreeing to accept Comchellak control of Al Nawzalak. The warlord accepts, and with supplies from the Republic and no longer surrounded by enemy forces, the warlord focuses on expanding southward and with only one front to fight along, he uses his advantage to great effect to defeat many of his rival warlords.
  • Italia continues working on its military after what is know known as the Ten Years War. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia start to see the rise of the steam engine to turn gears and power basic machinery. Cloth looms are now starting to be automatically run and decent sized factories spring up. The University of Venice has its operations suspended with the events of the year. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also. Michel Vendetti takes over the Dalmatian coastline and invades Yugoslavia in an attempt to capture the royal family. He also tries to incite the various ethnicities in Yugoslavia to revolt but the cultures have become too closely integrated. Vendetti's armies manage to seize Florence and Rome without much force under the leadership of a Florentine lawyer's son named Niccolo Bonaparte, who proves himself as an exemplary general. He continues to swing his armies around in an attempt to seize Ravenna and Urbino. Meanwhile, proof that groups in Romania have been supporting Vendetti, cause Hungary and Yugoslavia to lead an invasion of Romania. The King of Italia laments that the glorious beacon of the Mediterranean Sea has collapsed. Meanwhile in the colonies, a researcher in Nuovo Venexia manages to remodel the steam engine in a way that it turns a set of wheels on a vehicle while searching for a way to increase the speed of communications. He proposes a set of steel rails to guide the vehicle.
  • Romania, Hungary and Padang work on their economies. Yugoslavia works on its army while Siam and Malacca work on their navies.
  • Germanica continues to send military aid to Mysore and Orientalia as well as building up its military. The populace burns down the Icelandic Embassy outside Berlin and cries for war against Iceland begin. These are relatively ignored, but the Kaiser advises his people to bide their time. In the meantime, the government funds pro-German rebels in Luxembourg, who very much outnumber the Dutch. Luxembourg is incited to revolt against foreign Dutch rule and return to their Germanican rulers. The Dominion of Neu Prussen also funds rebels in Nya Syriac. Meanwhile, all the Dominions build up their militaries, while Mysore and Orientalia continue to bravely fight the invaders. Georgia elects its first Prime Minister, a Turkish-German and Germanic Christian. He vows to restore Georgia to its former glory.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Steam power and water wheels are incorporated in the southern part of the Empire. Chemistry is investigated and researched. Chorotega and Boruca continue build-up as trade hubs and industrial leaders. Chichen Itza and Tenochtitlan, as well as other major cities in the Empire, urbanize. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia, especially Brandenburg. The Juun family continues setting up schools. More universities are established in middle class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. Training drills are conducted by the military. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca. Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 5150 km and Haven expands 3100 km.
  • Russia works on its military. Industrial produiction is amped up, and more funds are given to scientists. The death rate is rapidly decreasing as a result of better understanding of anatomy. Novorossiya expands 8500 sq km Kanada by 500 sq km. Russia continues its firm stance that Scandinavia is part of Germany. Russsia sends diplomats to China to reaffirm an alliance or at least a non-aggression agreement with the far-east Nation. More mines in the Urals start using rails. The largest producer of iron and rail in the region becomes the newly-recognized city of Nizhni Tagil. This city becomes the Ural Region's Industrial powerhouse. The Altillianist movement grows in the colonies, especially with extra taxation.
  • Minsk works on its Economy. Industry builds up at an exponential rate. More textile factories emerge all around the nation, as the resource of the twin-piston steam engine is being used exquisitely well.
  • The Newly established Kievan State works in its military to improve defence as it is now tasked with partroling its borders. The Ukrainian Duma finishes construction, and the first elections are schedules for late this year, with five-year terms.

  • The Federated Duchy of the Caucasus works on its economic ties, and tries to stay open to trade competition. The EATA movement grows.
  • Riga works on its economy and continues construction of a merchant fleet of its own.
  • Icelandic Imperium: The Icelandic Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. The Bering Strait islands under Imperium control continue to explore the lands to their east (OTL Alaska). The number of trade posts on the islands on the coast is increased, in preparation for near future colonisation. A near constant stream of furs are now being traded between the rest of the Imperium and the trade posts in Alaska. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are expanded and continue to be modernised. The military stays at high alert and the conscription crash programme is bringing a huge bolstering of the military ranks. The forces within Scandinavia are bolstered with extra troops and continue to patrol and lockdown the Imperium's Scandinavian borders. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread through Imperium Scandinavia. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread from Sweden, Norway and Denmark back to Iceland and the rest of the Imperium. Following the destruction of the Icelandic embassy outside of Berlin, the German diplomats within the Germanica embassy are peacefully expelled from the Imperium, and the embassy demolished. A simple ultimatum is sent to Germanica, stating: "Accept the independence of the Scandinavian states and their unification with the Imperium, or a state of war shall exist between us". The Imperium awaits a response. In preparation for the response, the border between Denmark and Germanica is manned by a large proportion of the Imperium's armed forces in Scandinavia, and battle plans are drawn up for an invasion.
  • ​The Maharajya continues fighting. Uttashina is expanded 9200 km.

1791

Forced from their homelands by German colonists, the Cree people to the west of Eriksmark group together under an alliance of Cree tribal chiefs to form the Cree Confederacy. The Cree hope their new confederacy would be powerful enough to stop farther westward expansion by colonists into their homelands.

After inciting a rebellion of the native Persians, the Persian empire invades Dutch Persia, completely conquering the region by the end of the year thanks to the chaos caused by the rebellion. Shah Ashkan now vows to conquer Bandar Charak and return the Sheikdom back to Persian control after centuries of Arab control.

Georgia offers Shah Ashkan an alliance.
MOD: The Shah agrees. (Note: you don't share a common border, BTW).

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada prepare their militaries, while agriculture continues developing in Castille. Meanwhile in Aragon and Portugal, industrialization continues, and Meanwhile in Castille, the canal's construction continues. Meanwhile in Navarra, Garcia IX dies and is succeeded by his son Sancho, who is crowned as Sancho IX. Meanwhile in León, Fernando VII dies and is succeeded by his son Alfonso, who is crowned as "By the Grace of God, Alfonso XVII, King of León, Córdoba, Sevilla and Asturias, Duke of Cádiz, Galisteo, Cea and Alba de Tormes, Marchess of Coria, Castrofuerte, Valdefuentes and Villamanrique, and Count of Coca and Palma del Río". Meanwhile, Sofala expands 2000 sq km and Angola expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, Maranhão expands 7000 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, São Vicente is still being rebuilt. Meanwhile, due to the temporary relocation of the administrative seat of the capitania there, São Paulo grows. Meanwhile in Portugal, Fruela Borges publiches the fourth, fifth and sixth volumes of his "A História do Declínio e Queda do Império Romano".
  • Mutapa's military is expanded. Meanwhile, the Mwenemutapa Garcia starts to try to establish Christianity in Mutapa, given that not long after his conversion, his father Afonso cooled in the faith, and many of the Mutapans who had been baptized turned away.
  • The Mononobe Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation and in the colony of Miyako. Meanwhile, Okinawa Kingdom builds up its military. Also, Kasodani expands by 3300 sq km, Tojiko expands by 2000 sq km, Tōkaidō expands by 1200 sq km, Miyako expands into OTL mainland Chile by 1000 sq km, and Kazami expands by 500 sq km.

  • Apache: The military is built up and the weaponry improved upon and Catholic Churches are popping up everywhere and there are a total of two cathedrals in the entire country.
    • Primatial City of Magdeburg: The Catholic primate of Magdeburg sends some Catholic missionaries to the Apache to assist the local Catholic clergy.
  • Russian Antillianists: The movement for independence continues to gain strength, with it taking a majority of the Duma in Novorossiya, while colonial Duma elections in Kanada are not until next year. Still, support has slowly been growing in both colonies, with most of its supporters favoring freindly relations with Russia instead of breaking away by force. With the Duma in Novorossiya now being majority supporting independence, all of its representatives in the Russian National Duma have become advocates of the colonies' independence, although they do not bring up any action on the subject. The two colonies do, however, begin strengthening economic and defensive ties with each other, and trade between the two begin growing enormously. Novorossiya expands 1000 km squared as does Kanada.
  • Normandy: Normandy formally declares war on Ethiopia, asking France to ally with Normandy and declare war as well, due to the French Confederation.
    • The war is over, AFAIK. You are no longer an independent nation. ~S
    • The war, according to Viva, would be over within five turns or so, so I think I still should have a chance to get any allies I can.
    • It's actually three years of ingame conquest. And this is year two. ~Viva
  • Rebuilding efforts continue in the devastated areas. Many important buildings in Luzhou are rebuilt, as are some civilian structures (rebuilt by families rather than the government). China expands its military and works on recovering its economy. The alliance with Russia is reaffirmed and, as a token of gratitude for the many years of good relations, China sends a shipment of silk for the use of the Russian emperor and his family. Refugees from Luzhou and Chongqing flood New Manchuria and Baitudi this year, expanding them by 8000 sq km and 4000 sq km respectivelly.
  • Suddeutsches Reich: The trial semaphore line between Dresden and Munich built last year is hailed as a great success. Important messages from the Munich stock exchange were transmitted in mere hours, and Saxon and Bavarian army units were able to coordinate their movements so they arrived at the same place only fifteen minutes apart. Due to this, lines are erected between other major cities. The Imperial Postmaster, seeing the potential of the devices, starts a "semaphore letter service" whereby people can -for a price- pay for private messages to be sent from one town to another. A few wealthy people begin using the service to co-odrdinate their affairs on their estates around the country. Saxony and Bavaria both improve their respective armies, and each starts up a small "Comunications Corps". In Bavaria, the army begins extensive testing of the reconnaissance capabilities of hot air balloons. Meanwhile, John Montigrue begins working on "gas balloons" which require only hydrogen to remain in the air. In the vassals: the situation in Anhalt gets progressively worse, and some towns in the countryside openly side with the Annists. Cologne continues its march toward economic independence, with the pottery industry steadily improving output. Overseas: Bavarian Australis expands [maximum extent] along the coast toward the Ethiopian colony. The pearling industry improves, and some divers are brought in from Tanimbarkai. Bavarian Indonesia improves its naval forces and infrastructure. Bavarian colonists settle in Bavarian Carthage. Saxon Australis expands 1000 sq km toward the Welsh colony, and Saxon West Africa improves its infrastructure. The Landtag of the Guinea Schutzgebiet votes to establish a small trial semaphore line between the capital and a nearby township.
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 2100 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar. The 13th improved wooden sawmill is built in Northern Myanmar, with a production of 200 kg lumber daily. The 13th iron workshop is built in Southern Myanmar with 100 kg of iron made daily. The eighth air furnace is built. More rifles are built. More schools are built. The army begins training vigorously. We help Chinese families rebuild their homes. We begin to give families cheap education. Myanmar is now fairly industrialized.
  • Great Brython's Madoc IV, continues to lead his troop in the reunification of the Netherlands. Propaganda reaches an all time high, even beating last year's massive push. All Unionist Dutch and Brythons are now inundated with government papers, promoting the idea of unification, saying its a historical right, and pointing to the time of King Gavin III, who is still well remembered. Unionist Netherlands (Amsterdam to the Hague), Cleves, Liege, Oldenberg, and West Munster all fight with a venegence to unite the Netherlands again - under the Brythonic crown. The war goes extremely well with massive gains made. At this rate, it is expected that all of the Dutch land will have fallen under Madoc's control by Christmas. When this proves true, the coronation is planned for February of 1792, while the army and civilian diplomats begin to propagate the Indendentist Dutch. Since the Famine, which actually didn't kill many people, Brython's reliance on two main crops (rye and wheat) has been criticized. Now, only 25% rye and 25% wheat are grown annually, with 50% being a mixture of corn, potato, cabbage, lettuce, and beans. Crop rotation only furthers these notions of diversification. Meanwhile in Ireland and Scotland, Penguin Lilies are greatly popular, wih 25% of the farming culture growing these plants. Just about every household now has an air furnace, and steam power helps produce more crops, and drive up food production, which increases population, and increases urbanization.
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km and Tulpung yr Aber 3000 sq km for the Welsh government. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries. A notion of unification comes about, but is widely disregarded at the current time. Hobyo-Somalia grow their economies and militaries, and expands 10,000 sq km into Warsangali, which we begin to make a protectorate. New South Wales grow their economies and militaries. All vassals send aid to the war effort. The colony at Caer Anial expands 10,000 sq km into the Comchellak Republic, along where the old colony used to be.
  • Cyprus continues to expand its army and navy. Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 2000 sq km, Nea Larnaka is expanded by 2000 sq km and Nea Lemesos is expanded by 2000 sq km.
  • Ethiopia expands its military and economy and those of the vassals. The military continues its conquest of Normandy, with the city of Cherboug falling to their forces early in the year. The Ethiopian navy blockades the remaining ports in the nation, with a fleet of 20,000 colonists from Ethiopia proper arriving on the shores of Normandy to begin settling the "virgin territory". They are followed by 40,000 additional colonists transported to Normandy by the navies of the other vassals. Normans captured by the Ethiopians are deported to Ethiopian colonies and vassals to diversify the populations, but are for the most part, treated humanely. A force of 25,000 troops are expected to arrive in Normandy by the fall of next year to bolster the Ethiopian forces there already. The other Norman vassals of Benin, Oyo, Beja, and Mogadishu are brought into the empire, and the Ethiopification of their lands begins, with tens of thousands of Ethiopians displacing the local populations and governments. The colonies of Borona is expanded by 2300 km, Dahnnat and Tasfa expanded by 700 km, while Mogas is expanded by 200 km. Vassalization of Warsangali begins, as the Ethiopian Emperor and his people and vassals all request that the former vassal return to the protection of neighboring Ethiopia.
    • "The Ethiopian navy blockades the remaining ports in the nation, with a fleet of 20,000 colonists from Ethiopia proper arriving on the shores of Normandy to begin settling the "virgin territory". They are followed by 40,000 additional colonists transported to Normandy by the navies of the other vassals" What do you plan to do, convert the whole European country into a bunch of Ethiopians?
    • Why not? The Dutch did it to South Africa, the Brits to Australia, and Americans to, well, America. Heck, there were 250,000 Portuguese in Angola in 1974 (120,000 left there today). There were 1.6 million French living in Algeria in the '70s. I could go on and on with examples. It's colonialism. I'm supposed to colonize Normandy. And so what is European? Vietnam was Asian. Colonized. Algeria was Arab. Colonized. Somalia was African. Colonized. Normandy is European. Colonized. ~Viva
    • You're going to have a hard time randomly displacing the whole population of Normandy and "colonizing" an established, worldly country that has existed for centures alongside many other established, worldly countries. Normandy isn't the same as Algeria or Somalia. But it's cute how you're so bent on "colonizing" Europe :) ~Cookie
    • Weren't Algeria (an emirate at the time of conquest), Somalia (a sultanate) and Ethiopia (a full blown autocratic empire) established for centuries? The whole population of Normandy is bearing a million, and its military was shattered. I don't need to displace your people to colonize it. I also think it's cute how you're trying so hard to prevent the typical routine undertaking by the victorious party. Your nation was defeated. Now my nation is sending people there to live on the land it just conquered. Empires don't take land because they thinks it looks nice on a map, they take it so that their people can live on it. Get over it. ~Viva
    • I am over it. I even cleared out "Normandy" in the sign up section just for you! I just find it laughable the undying conviction you have for "colonizing Europe because Europe did it to Africa" belief.
    • You clearly misunderstand something. I'm not doing it because of that. I'm doing it because you said that Ethiopia had to attack your main nation to get your vassals. So I did, and as a direct result, I got your nation. I just find the additional perks of colonizing Normandy rather convenient. Also, I use the example because people here tend to forget that a nation with a well trained and well equipped nation can use that two-way street called the ocean to attack anything anywhere. My conviction is to put an end to the "because it didn't happen in OTL means it can't happen in ATL" belief. Getting to Europe is one thing, getting you to grasp the fact Europe isn't invincible is another. ~Viva
    • I don't see why not. ~ S
    • It's one thing to leave all of the citizens of Normany in the country. Exporting the whole population to a foreign continent is completely different. Even in the slave trade, the population as a whole was not taken, only a percentage, and they had a purpose, not just to 'diversify the population'. And what is there to colonize? Normandy is an established country, in an already crowded continent. There are no major resources that Normandy possesses that you could want, other than its location for trade.
    • Ethiopia was an already established nation. Didn't stop Umberto I or Mussolini from trying to colonize it twice. And I never said I was deporting the entire population. I said "Normans", not "All of the Normans." You're getting caught up in minor misinterpretations. And nations don't need a reason for taking over other nations. It's a fact. As for slavery, I never stated that was my intention, but slavery IS a major depopulater. The Kongo had a population of two million when it first encountered Portugal. By the time it was destroyed, thanks to slavery, its population shrank to a little more than half a million. As for economics, Normandy is a rich farmland, so it can provide foods and drinks not possible to grow in Africa. Like I've said many times in the past, I, nor anyone else, require a reason to invade any nation of any kind. I got Normandy because Cookie insisted that in order for me to get his vassals, I had to attack his main nation. Ergo, I won Normandy in the process. ~Viva

  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Yagic Rafael expands 1000 sq km. Military and economy continue their buildup. Great Chief Damasus faces increasing pressure from roayalist factions as the normally republican K'onipians begin to embrace royalist leanings in the face of overcrowding. Penguin Lilies have grown completely out of control in the Teushen and Tehuelche territories and the rivers are filled with them. While they are still good to eat, many farmers stop planting them in hopes of easing the overpopulation. Brother Polycarp sends a delegation of Maugholdian scholars to Tenochtitlan in hopes of seeking dialogue with the Kappelist leaders and seeking ties between the two sects on the grounds that both are anti-Catholic and embrace similar doctrines, he suggests that while the two may not unify, the Kappelists and Apostolics both fall under a broader group which he labels "Anapapists" (this being analogous to the OTL terrm "Protestant" with the Kappelists representing the Lutherans and the Apostolics representing the Anglicans). (Maya, please respond). In an attempt to broaden the trade in kelp products, traders from Yagich Rafael begin sailing to Ethiopia in hopes that the great empire of Africa will open trade.

It is announced that a cause for the canonization of Matthaus Kappel has been opened ant that he is likely to be deemed a saint of the Apostolic Church within two years.
  • Germanica grudgingly accepts the Imperium's ultimatum, as bigger problems are at hand. More military aid is sent to the Dominions of Mysore and Orientalia. The military continue to build up and a Maginot-esque Line is built along the border with the UKSG. Industrialization and urbanization continue across the nation.
  • The Dominion of Neu Berlin ignores the new Cree nation and approaches them with offers of foreign guns and weaponry and industrialization if they should join the Dominion. Several individual tribes and some families accept and moves into the Dominion. The Dominion builds up its military and sends aid to the fellow Dominions of Mysore and Orientalia. The new Prime Minister promises to make Neu Berlin a grand nation, and he does not seem to be lying.
  • The Dominion of Chimu sends military aid to the Dominion of Orientalia. Chimu bolsters its military and fortifies its northern and southern borders, although Halakin remains open.
  • The Dominions of Mysore and Orientalia continue to fight the war bravely, and they are able to hold the enemy back not far from the old border, thanks to reinforcements arriving from the other Dominions and Germanica.
  • Mali: Gabu, Mossi and Wolof contribute to the economy and military,
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Steam power and water wheels are incorporated in the southern part of the Empire. Chemistry is investigated and researched.

  • The Arabian Federation fights the civil war, with many different Sheiks and Emirs fighting for control of the thrones of the killed Sheiks and Emirs. The loyal Federal states manage to convince the Emir of Abu Dhabi al Rahba to re-join the Federation, as the Federation battles the growing power of the Emirate of Muscat as the Nabhan Dynasty of Oman seek to return Oman back to its glory days of independence before the Great Gulf War of 1465-68. As such, Emir Abu al Khayr declares himself Sultan of a newly independent Oman. Oman wins several battles conquering the Sheikdoms of Shinas, Suhar and Al Suwaiq stopping the Federation expanding eastward. Sultan Abu al Khayr builds up his army in Suhar as he prepares to march on Sharjah D.C. Elsewhere in the Federation, the Saudi dynasty of the Sheikdom of Riyadh wins many battles and expand their own holdings, with Sheik Gamali bin Saud declaring himself a Sultan, of his new expanded territory which he names Saudi Arabia. Otherwise the civil war continues to plague the Federation but the Levant’s war against the Abbudin continues doing well with Caliph Abdul-Sami trying to get other Arabs to join his cause and form the radical Abbudin Islamic Caliphate.
  • The Dimurat Kingdom continues its civil war, as Queen Qurratulain fights her brother Prince Jibril and manages to defeat his army this year. She now turns her attention to the republican rebels and manages to capture one of their main strongholds as the year ends.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military as part of King Ezekiel’s intervention in the Arabian Federation’s civil war. The King’s forces fight the Abbudin forces and the Levant now get involved in the Italian revolution, supporting royalist forces and sending in the navy to battle Michel Vendetti’s naval forces. Elsewhere, colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 4500 sq km northward.
  • The Sultanate of Baghdad builds up its military as Sultan Abdur Rahim asserts Baghdadi independence. The ever peaceful Sultan forms an alliance with Persia and Turkistan as well, and with this the Sultan dies peacefully in his sleep. His son succeeds him as Sultan Husam al Din and he proceeds to pursue his father’s legacy of peace, economic development and co-operation with other nations. Baghdad goes into NPC mode.
  • The Sultanate of Kuwait builds up its own military to try help out the federal forces restore order and meets the Federation government in Sharjah D.C but Sultan Ibrahim tries to help the Federation loyalists understand it will be some time before they can re-take the rest of Arabia, and so he urges them to pursue democratic means and focus on the war against Oman, who’s forces march on the capital.
  • The Maldives builds up its military and sends help to the Federation to help them restore order and Federal control. The Sultan travels to the Levant to meet with their King, and he signs the treaty of Fort Ahmed which makes the Maldives a vassal of the Levant.
  • The King of Tanimbarkai builds up his military and he launches an invasion of the Arabian Kupang colony with the help of some German troops. The Arabs who are already in disarray are easily beaten by the more organised forces of the German-Tanimbarakian troops.
    • Okay Tanimbarkai is now all yours, Callum. I give it up to you completely now ~Von.
  • The Republic of Comchellak builds up its military to recover from the civil war. The warlord Radama fights the other rebels in Madagascar expanding southward very quickly and his many victories inspires him to declare himself the King of Sakalava but to the south the Merina people under the leadership of King Andrianampoinimerina of the Merina conquer most of the south of the island. However, the ever resourceful merchant leaders of Comchellak begin plotting their economic takeover of the new emerging native Madagascan nations, and they also ally with the new Mercantile Republics of Mombasa, Zanzibar, Mtwara and Mafia. As the year ends, the allied merchant leaders and Sheiks of the nations meet to discuss forming a new more powerful nation of a union of the Arab merchant states of East Africa; a nation which they dub the new Arabian Federation.
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The King continues to expand the military, focusing on the navy. Argentium colony expands 5000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 3000 km. Warqama expands 1000 km north. The government continues fighting.
  • Oldeburg, Liege, Indonesia, Kongo, Cleves, West Munster, Luxembourg, Warqama expand military and economy. Kongo expands 10,000 sq km inland.
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future of the nation lies with themselves. More services are offered on the new route. The prototype engines continue running on the route, yet need to stop many times to refill up their coal reserves. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills continue to make great rolls of paper and with cheap paper now being sold on the market, this allows many new writers to be able to publish their works onto the market. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The nation's propaganda continues to pump out patriotic messages, helping to keep the population going during this war. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military, with troops coming in from fighting against the Dutch receiving much experience and hardening. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also takes place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. The war is making slow progress due to the Germans sending a large number of supplies to the Mysorians, who have dug in on many positions making it hard for the nation's army to move in at a rapid pace. Yet this is planned to be cut out with an audacious plan. Early in the year, the order is given for the Navy to attack mainland Brandenburg. To the surprise of the Germans, later in the year, Naval ships launch surprise attacks after forming up following their rest period in allied ports on the German mainland. What shocks them even more is when the ships land an armed army to invade from the sea itself - hoping to drive the main forces to surrender. Prussia and Southern Germany are asked to assist. Meanwhile, the Raja looks to the Imperium (LOL - it's my name) for potential new allies.
    • It would take over a year to reach Germanica from Orissa; Kun is on break, and the UKSG is currently a neutral state.
    • Actually, it took the Mayflower five to six weeks to reach America going against the currents. It would only take Orissa three to four months to reach Europe, maybe even less. ~Viva
    • Plus I already had bits and pieces of my fleet stationed here and there - mainly in allied ports.
    • Hmm, it appears you're correct, Viva. Imp, your nearest ally is Italy, whose ports are around the other side of Europe.
  • Mataram expands army and economy. Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 9200 km. Rajputana also begins to experience a boom in construction as people head into the cities and factories grow in number. Sindustan amps up on its army and economy. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 10,000 km inland and they build up their army. Naya Bihar sees growth on its coast as cities begin to grow and rival some in the Maharajya itself. Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure. Troops from all nations fully support the United Maharajya and its troops begin to engage with the enemy.
  • Scandinavian Imperium: After much thought, the Emperor decrees that the Icelandic Imperium shall be renamed the Scandinavan Imperium, to reflect the new make up of its lands. The Scandinavian Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. The Bering Strait islands under Imperium control continue to explore the lands to their east (OTL Alaska). The number of trade posts on the islands on the coast is increased, in preparation for near future colonisation. A near constant stream of furs are now being traded between the rest of the Imperium and the trade posts in Alaska. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are expanded and continue to be modernised. The military stays at high alert and the conscription crash programme is bringing a huge bolstering of the military ranks. The forces within Scandinavia are bolstered with extra troops and continue to patrol and lockdown the Imperium's Scandinavian borders. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread through Imperium Scandinavia. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread from Sweden, Norway and Denmark back to Iceland and the rest of the Imperium.

1792

Mount Unzen erupts in Kyushu, Japan, with the resulting avalanche and giant wave caused after an old lava dome collapses, about 15,000 people die.

The Arabian Federation's Bengkulu colony falls into disarray as the natives rise up to overthrow their Arab colonial rulers. The natives aren't united though and the colony is divided in three between the new native nations of Jambi, Lampung and Bengkulu.

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada prepare their militaries, while agriculture continues developing in Castille. Meanwhile in Aragon and Portugal, industrialization continues, and Meanwhile in Castille, the canal's construction continues. Meanwhile in Portugal, Pedro III dies and is succeeded by his son Afonso, who is crowned in Portugal as "By the Grace of God, Afonso XII, Emperor of Spain, King of Portugal, Galicia, Algarve, Castille, Toledo, Jaén, Murcia, Cantabria, of either side of the sea in Africa, Prince of Brasil, Duke of Viseu, Ferrol, Lugo, Pontevedra, Huete, Pastrana, Peñafiel, Soría and Villalba, Marchess of Auñón, La Adrada, Malagón, Count of Alcaudete, Bañares, Castrojeriz and Villalobos and Lord of Guiné, of either side of the Rio da Prata, and of Commerce, Navigation of Conquest on India". Meanwhile, Sofala expands 2000 sq km and Angola expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, Maranhão expands 7000 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, São Vicente is still being rebuilt. Meanwhile, due to the temporary relocation of the administrative seat of the capitania there, São Paulo grows.
  • Mwenemutapa Garcia's efforts to establish Christianity on his kingdom continue, with him forbidding the worship of idols. The military is expanded, and an alliance is signed with Portugal.
  • The Arabian Federation fights the civil war, with many different Sheiks and Emirs fighting for control of the thrones of the killed Sheiks and Emirs. The Federation’s loyal forces meet with the armies of Oman at the battle of Lahbab. The battle is a stalemate with both sides losing many men. Oman and the Federation sign a peace treaty and agree to respect each other’s sovereignty. Elsewhere in the Federation, Saudi Arabia expands as does the Sheikdom of Khafji thanks to his Kuwaiti support. Khafji declares itself an Emirate and independent of the Federation and forms a close alliance with Kuwait. Otherwise the civil war continues to plague the Federation but the Levant’s war against the Abbudin continues doing well with the Levant capturing Medina. Caliph Abdul-Sami is then killed by more moderate Imams, and Abbudin control collapses. The Imams re-form the old council which was disbanded by the Abbudin, and they elect Imam, Ishaq of Mecca as the new Caliph. The Caliph re-declares Caliphate independence from the Federation, stating the Caliph is the best possible leader of men and nation, and creating a nation under religious Sharia law.
  • The Dimurat Kingdom continues its civil war, as Queen Qurratulain defeats the last of the Republicans. She declares victory and enacts a new constitution to appease the more moderate republicans, starting a new era of the Dimurati constitutional monarchy. (Government change and Dimurat now NPC).
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military as part of King Ezekiel’s intervention in the Arabian Federation’s civil war. The King’s forces fight the Abbudin forces and the Levant now get involved in the Italian revolution, supporting royalist forces and sending in the navy to battle Michel Vendetti’s naval forces. The King also thanks the Maldives for agreeing to become a vassal of the Levant and sends them lots of nice things from the Levant as thanks. Elsewhere, colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 4500 sq km northward.
    • Neu Prussen asks to purchase the Levantine colony in Antillia.
  • The Maldives builds up its economy as the new Levantine vassal, sees a new Levant military base being built on the Maldives.
  • The Sultanate of Kuwait builds up its own military to try help out the federal forces restore order but the Sultan sees it as a lost cause and decides to treat them as independent states. Being friendly with them all and supporting Khafji helps secure Kuwait’s borders and keeps the Kuwaiti gulf trade network going. Kuwait begins going into difficult relations with the Arabian Federation, and some political fights break out. This causes Sultan Ibrahim to renounce his vassalage to the Federation and he makes Kuwait fully independent. (Kuwait now NPC.)
  • The Republic of Comchellak builds up its military to recover from the civil war. The warlord wars continue but the King of Sakalava, Radama and King Andrianampoinimerina of the Merina begin conquering most their rivals on the island. Comchellak and the other Arab mercantile republics sign an agreement and they form the East Africa Federation. The founding states being the Republic of Comchellak, Mombasa, Zanzibar, Mtwara and Mafia.
  • The Mononobe Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation and in the colony of Miyako. Meanwhile, Okinawa Kingdom builds up its military. Also, Kasodani expands by 3300 sq km, Tojiko expands by 2000 sq km, Tōkaidō expands by 1200 sq km, Miyako expands into OTL mainland Chile by 1000 sq km, and Kazami expands by 500 sq km. Taoism in Kasodani continues to rise in popularity and more Taoist temples are built. More funding is put into science and agriculture. More fertiliser is created and used on fields. More air furnaces are also built. Meanwhile, urbanisation continues in Kyushu, Shikoku, Honshu, and Hokkaido. More steam power is built, and a few water wheels are built. Aid and clean up continues to areas affected by the volcano. New aid and clean up begins for the recent volcano as well. Meanwhile in Tojiko, the Soga clan begins to launch a new revolt against Mononobe rule. A new colony is established on the tip of OTL Southwest Alaska called Kochiya.
  • Great Brython prospers as crop rotation and new crops are the new norm. Just about every household now has an air furnace, and steam power helps produce more crops, and drive up food production, which increases population, and increases urbanization. The Christian Soldiers of St. David of Wales quickly move into former Arab nations, to spread Christianity. Military grows.
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km and Tulpung yr Aber 3000 sq km. Vassalization of Sumba, off the coast of Tulpung yr Aber, begins. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries. Hobyo-Somalia grows its military and economy, as do Congo and Warqama, which is technically a colony of Congo. We also begin to make a protectorate out of Jambi, Lampung and Bengkulu. New South Wales grows their economy and military. We begin to talk with the Arab Federation of the East about renouncing their ties to the failing, original Federation.
  • In light of the recent acquisitions and the growth of the empire, Ethiopia rebrands itself Imperium Africana. The Emperor states that given Ethiopia's past role as the most powerful nation on the continent of Africa, and the extent of its domains in the world as an African nation–being the only one to have done so, he and his court deemed it prudent to go ahead with the change. The colony of Borona is elevated to the status of dominion, and granted representation in the newly reformed Imperial Court. For a time, the inhabitants shall be known as Imperial Africans, or Imperials for convenience, so as to separate the inhabitants of the Imperium from those of the non-Imperial lands. The colonies of Dahnnat and Tasfa expanded by 1000 km each, while Mogas and Tumaini are expanded by 250 km. Vassalization of Warsangali continues into its third year. The dominions of Borona, Kenya, Oyo, Benin and Yorubaland are expanded by 10,000 km each.
    • France D: As France is a member of the French confederation, France would like to buy the Territory of Continental Normandy in exchange for land in Africa or South America.
    • Imperial African D: We have fought long and hard for the land that you speak of. Exactly what lands could compensate for the land won in Europe? If you wish to part from North Africa, we may consider the bargain.
    • France D: We would give our colony of La Riviere in OTL Argentina, which is around double of the size of Normandy and would be another asset of yours in Antilian-Atlantian continent. in North Africa we would be reluctant as it would be a matter of concern due to the territories being from Carthage monarchy.
    • Imperial African D: Well, then we are afraid that no trade can be made currently. We hope you will understand that our people wouldn't be all too pleased to see the land their brothers and sisters died for so quickly handed over to a foreign power.
    • France D: I understand your doubt and reluctance but you must understand that we are doing this to avoid further troubles between the French Normans and the African Ethiopian inhabitants and you would get around twice the size of the land. It would a greater win for your empire and your people and you could propose us a counteroffer.
    • The Dominion of Neu Berlin seeks to purchase the former Norman territory directly bordering it. (It's mostly useless forest and barren ice land. The only reason I want it is because it's right next to me.)
    • Imperial African D: The Crown Colony of Wädäb is an important fur and whaling center. It will bring much wealth to the empire and provide jobs for Ethiopians seeking to living abroad. We cannot separate from it so soon. (The OTL Hudson Bay Company still exists, and makes beaucoup bucks selling furs and other log cabin stuff.)
    • France D: We continue asking you to give us the Norman European land. It is our unique concern to unify the French soil under one monarch as it once was centuries ago. We should at least continue our talks to avoid an unneeded conflict between the Normans and the Ethiopians.
    • Give up Sine, you have no chance. Viva, it would take a while to get to Wadab. If you set sail from Yoruba or Normandy in the summer, it would be winter by the time you get there, and you'd be forced to wait out the winter (August to March). You only just planted your flag on Norman soil. Then perhaps Africa could maintain control over the coast?
    • The war took three years to complete. Ethiopian troops got there a while ago as it would take three months to get from the staging camps in Lagos to Hudson Bay. I was speaking in future terms, I just got my tense wrong. It's fixed now. ~Viva
  • Russian Antillianists: The movement for independence takes control of Kanadas Duma. The two colonies continue strengthening economic and defensive ties with each other, and trade between the two continues growing enormously. Novorossiya expands 3000 km squared as does Kanada. The two colonies send representatives to Novorossiya's colonial capitol, forming the first Continental Duma, the two colonies begin plans for a post independence government, agreeing to form a United States of Antillia, with a three-branch government with a Judicial, Legislative and Executive with the Executive being composed of the Monarch and his Cabinet. The legislature having two houses, one with three Senators from each state, and one based on population. The judicial branch will be the supreme court of the country. The legislature will have the power to force the monarchs abdication by a two-thirds majority vote. Kanada and Novorossiya will be broken down into nine new states as agreed upon by the Continental Duma. The represenatives in the Russian Duma begin demanding independence from Russia, stating peace is their utmost priority in the separation.
    • Imperial African D: As we have made clear a number of times, Imperium Africana does not wish to part with any of gains. Please respect that wish. We find our current position more valuable at the time than if we part with our territories, we have no intention of changing that.
  • PMII Vinland-France Treaty
    Germanica continues to fight in the war. Orissan forces are quickly defeated since they have no re-inforcements. More aid is sent to Mysore and Orientalia, who continue to hold their ground. The Dominion of Vinland expands 15,000 sq km into Quebec (just filling up the gap next to Kanada). All the Dominions send some small military aid to Mysore and Orientalia. I was wondering if Neu Berlin could have a no-penalty bonus for expansion into Canada, much like Russia had in Siberia. The Dominion of Vinland also proposes a peace treaty with Baie d'Eric, where the room for expansion for Vinland and Baie d'Eric is shown. After heated debate, Oaxaca is transferred from Chimu to Neu Prussen.
    • We'll organise a border agreement with Russia, Italia and other colonial powers in the region and fair enough. Otherwise, it's not fair for their expansion if you can just outdo them all the time. May I recommend the Ohio and Mississippi as your border with Italian colonies? ~Von
    • I'll get around to that sooner or later. Also there are only three others: Ethiopia, Russia and Italy, as Portugal is boxed in.
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 2100 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar. The 14th improved wooden sawmill is built in Northern Myanmar, with a production of 200 kg lumber daily. The 14th iron workshop is built in Southern Myanmar with 100 kg of iron made daily. The ninth air furnace is built. More rifles are built. More schools are built. The army begins training vigorously. We help Chinese families rebuild their homes. We begin to give families cheap education. Myanmar is now fairly industrialized.
  • Suddeutsches Reich: The Emperor and Empress accredit an ambassador to the newly-formed African Imperium. Bavaria and Saxony both improve their militaries, especially the new Communications Corps. The semaphore lines are expanded to include more towns, and a whole new Imperial Department of Telecommunications (a word coined especially for the new system) is set up to co-ordinate the setting-up of the lines as well as the training and paying of the operators. In Bavaria, more people move to the cities to work in factories. New wool-mills are set up to process Saxon wool. The gas balloons are tested, and they work quite well. In the Vassals: The situation in Anhalt continues to disintegrate, with a growing part of the countryside under the sway of the Annist rebels. Cologne improves its tiny army, and considers having a small telegraph line in its territory. Overseas: the newly-vassalised Kingdom of Tanimbarkai celebrates its success in taking Kupang. The king imprives his military, and invites Magdeburg missionaries to come and assist in converting and educating his own people and the Kupangers. In Bavarian Indonesia, industry is improved. Bavarian and Saxon Australis both expand 1000 sq km westward along the coast. Saxon West Africa improves its infrastructure.
  • France: Nouvelle Bourgogne expands 3000 sq km, while La Riviere and Baie d'Eric (Erik's Bay) expand by 1700 sq km inland and Brasilea expands by 3000 sq km inland and Baie d'Notre Dame expands by 1100 sq km. School system is devastated, but the growth starts. Military is built up. The Germans are offered an alliance to avoid further conflict as the population and the kingdom is tired for such wars, with Germany or other nations. The Vassalization of Basotho begins, while this the armies are increased and the presence on the African west coast begins.
  • Lorraine: Military is built up. School system grows and the nation builds from the war.

  • Apache: The economy is improved so all Apachean people can live comfortably. The Council of Elders send a delegation to the Mayan Empire wondering if the Catholic and Shaman tribes will be persecuted against because the Mayans are strongly Kappelist and ask that no missionaries not approved by the Council to enter Apache lands.
    • While The Mayan Empire is not mainly Catholic, it will not persecute the belief system of the Apache, although it will exert a strong Kappelist influence on it. (Kappelism in the Mayan Empire is like OTL Anabaptists)
  • Italia continues working on its military after what is know known as the Ten Years War. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia start to see the rise of the steam engine to turn gears and power basic machinery. Cloth looms are now starting to be automatically run and decent sized factories spring up. The University of Venice has its operations suspended with the events of the year. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also. Michel Vendetti completes the conquest of Yugoslavia and Italia. He then declares war on Albania. The small nation's professional army is crushed by human wave tactics that Vendetti uses. The revolution continues its "Reign of Terror" with the execution of the King and Queen of Italia, Hungary is also crushed under Vendetti's heel as Romanian armies team up with Vendetti. Large tracts of Transylvania are annexed to Romania (OTL Romanian borders). Vendetti begins to incite strife in neighbouring nations. In Nuovo Venexiathe first railroad is laid down between Nuovo Venexia and Fuggeria.
    • Neu Berlin seeks to make a border agreement with the Italian colonies at the Myami (Ohio) River. Neu Berlin is also willing to purchase the colony directly south of it (Nuovo Venexia?) in order to fund the government. Why are you even doing this? We already had our Napoleon analogue.
  • Romania and Padang work on their economies. Siam and Malacca work on their navies
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Yagich Atticus expands 100 sq km to include a newly discovered island which is christened Yagich Rachel (OTL St. Helena). Great Chief Damasus orders that this new island tae five shiploads of settlers per year for three years in order to ease the overcrowding on K'onip. In the Teushen and Tehuelche territories, Penguin Lilies continue growing out of control and leap the borders into the rivers of De Mor Tir and Miyako (Have fun guys!). The local residents stop planting this crop for the time being but continue to eat the plentiful wild plants as a staple in their diet. However, in colder climates the Penguin Lilies still prove to be a viable and controllable crop. Ships are sent to Brython with instructions to evacuate as much of the Apostolic Church hierarchy from the war zone as possible in order to save the faith. A temporary court is prepared at the Cathedral and University of Ona Yagich. Large shipments of kelp are sent to Ethiopia, as are a substantial quantitiy of dried Penguin Lilies and sacks of Penguin Lily seeds. Based on talks with the local dignitaries, the Selk'nam conclude that these plants may be suited to the cold climate of Ethiopia's Northern Antillian colonies, where they will be a controllable crop. As Yagich Rafael Yagich develops into a large city, many of the elite colonists ask to send their children to study in Ethiopia, as that nation is much closer by ship to Yagich Rafael than either Europe or the Selk'nam mainland. (Ethiopian Response)
    • ​Imperium Africana would be happy to tutor these young learners for the Selk'nam people. We are honored to host their education in Ethiopia, and will do all in our power to ensure that they grow to become wise teachers and leaders for the next generation of the Selk'nam nation.
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Eutychianius orders the entire Apostolic hierarchy, both Selk'nam and Brythonic, to flee to the Selk'nam territorries, he also takes a substantial number of monks from the Order of St. David in hopes of ensuring that the order is not entirely concentrated in Brython. He explicitly states that he plands to return to Brythonic territories if possible after the war. And entire ship is loaded with books, with special care given to the Mayan Kappelist collection brought by Brother Lando. When he arrives in Ona Yagich, he refuses the celebratory welcome of the local people and declares in a speech, "While we love the Haruwin, we will, and we must return the Church to Europe in order to re-unite Christendom! Never has this been more important than in these horible days of war!" Dutch and Scandinavian ships are asked to give the Prime Bishop and his court safe passage out of Europe.

  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The war is over. The parties will meet in London and signed a peace treaty, which henceforth will determine the relationship between the three states. The King Niejmen II continues to expand the military, focusing on the navy. Dutch troops then take the Brython Navy and begin to integrate the two nations' vessels into one effective and larger navy. All families who lost familiy members are reimbursed from the King Madoc IV treasury.

New Zeeland and the Welsh Antillian Isles are combined into New Zeeland, which is promoted to a vassal. The government sends an ambassador to Persia, to communicate to the new leaders that we will not make any claim for refund for Dutch Persia, and to strengthen future relations, we offer commercial products at a lower rate, and thus establish a more commercial link quality gradually. Argentium colony expands 5000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 3000 km. Warqama expands 1000 km north. Also, the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km and Tulpung yr Aber 3000 sq km.

  • Apache: The Council of Elders ask the Mayan for help setting up an industrialized economy. The Bishop of Ekta asks that all Catholics in Apache lands to stand fast against any other faith. The economy is improved with the construction of the first Guildhall in Ekta.
    • The Mayan Empire agrees (this doesn't mean that you can industrialize faster, though).
  • Russian Antillianists: The two colonies continue strengthening economic and defensive ties with each other, and trade between the two continues growing enormously. Novorossiya expands 15,000 km squared as does Kanada into Quebec. The two colonies send representatives to Novorossiya's colonial capitol, forming the Second Continental Duma, the two colonies finish plans for a post independence government, agreeing to form a United States of Antillia, with a three-branch government with a Judicial, Legislative and Executive. With the Executive being composed of the Monarch and his Cabinet. The legislature having two houses, one with three Senators from each state, and one based on population. The judicial branch will be the supreme court of the country. The legilsature will have the power to force the monarch's abdication by a two-thirds majority vote. Kanada and Novorossiya will be broken down into nine new states as agreed upon by the Continental Duma. The representatives in the Russian Duma continue demanding independence from Russia, stating peace is there utmost priority in the separation. The Antillianists find a member of the Russian royal family sympathetic to their cause, nominating him as monarch once the USA becomes separate.
  • You can only expand 15,000 sq km upon your independence, and in Russian, you're the SSA, not USA.
  • You do know you don't have to emulate the USA, right? But whatever, I thought "Federation of the Shining Continent" (translated it would be Federatsiya Blestayushego Kontinenta, or FBK) was a better name, but hey, I gave you the colonies. It's your decision, whatever floats your boat. In Canada, there were three conferences that led to confederation: Charlottown, Quebec and London.
  • China expands its military and economy as the devastated cities are rebuilt. New Manchuria expands by 8000 sq km to the north while Baitudu expands by 4000 sq km south.
  • Russia works on its military. Industrial produiction is amped up, and more funds are given to scientists. The death rate is rapidly decreasing as a result of better understanding of anatomy. Russia grudgingly continues its stance on Scandinavia. Support for Antillianism grows within the Duma, and it also gets its share of opponents. Socialism grows, with a second Member of the Duma being replaced. The Tsar, himself, begins contemplating giving the colonies independence, since it is gaining so much popular support (partially because he gave his home, Ukraine, Independence from Russia and does not want to seem hipocritical). He invites the colonial posadniks and Antillianist members of the Dumas to come and discuss their suggestions in Novgorod. In Novgorod, the Duma passes a reform, that changes some positions, giving the Posadnik of the Duma the title Verkhovniy Posadnik, to differentiate the position of Head of the Russian Government from all the mayors of major cities, including Novgorod, who all have the title "Posadnik". Creating more ministries responsible for things, and restructuring the Uezds and Oblasts of Russia. Socialism grows even further. many changes are expected to occur to the political landscape after the next "electoral period" is done. Thoughts about having a universal "election day" also become common throughout the Duma, since the Electoral system elects members of the Duma for five-year terms, but the Deputees can be called back at whatever time the District pleases if they believe he is not representing their interests of it they find a better candidate. Because of centuries of this system, the Duma elections have become rather confused and unco-ordinated. Legislature proposing that a nationwide "election day" be held every 30 years regardless of a member's tenure to correct the confusion now going on. The legislature would allow members to serve out their five-year tenures as they usualy would, and could be called back and be replaced at the citizens of their constituancy's will, however, on certain days every 30 years, all members of the Duma must submit to re-election in order to correct any indescrepencies that may have arisen during that time, regardless of the length of their current term, their term will be coinsidered served on election day. The bill, dubbed Bill VR1035, gains much traction in the Duma. Voting is postponed to next year due to the Duma's one-month winter break. Several political factions start to form within the Duma.
    • Germanica advises Russia to make Kanada and Novorossiya into Dominions, much like Germanica.

  • Persian Empire: Begins to industrialize the nation, begins to learn how the Europeans fight. We create our first rifle.
  • Great Brython's King, Madoc IV, spends half of the year in Great Brython, and focuses on rebuilding the nations after a series of costly wars. Looking to Germany, the King decides to adopt a policy of isolationism in diplomatic relations. He notes that trade will remain open, and that all current alliances will be honored by sending supplies to the attacked nation, but that no Brythonic or Dutch troops will engage in any combat. Madoc IV's success in the Netherlands leads to him being praised as "the Greatest King of our Age," "rivalled only by the unification of Brython," and "as great as the Revolution of 1450." With all of this praise, Madoc IV leaves to spend the summer and fall in the Netherlands. Penguin Lilies begin to overtake Ireland, with a significant population already growing in Scotland, and now in Brittany. Crop rotation and new crops are the new norm. Just about every household now has an air furnace, and steam power helps produce more crops, and drive up food production, which increases population, and increases urbanization. The Christian Soldiers of St. David of Wales continue to expand their efforts to convert and spread Apostolic Catholocism, and continue efforts in all newly conquered states, many of which are already Anapaptist or Catholic, which the Apostolic Church both recognize. Economy grows.
  • The Netherlands' Dutch populace continues to be favorable to the Welsh, and a large movement begins for each nation's citizens to learn the others' language. As such, Brythonic and Dutch both become popular, and are used almost intermixedly in business hubs like Amsterdam. Brythonic troops continue to integrate the Dutch Navy and make the two nations' vessels into one effective navy. The economy grows. Meanwhile, a new map for Cleves, Liege, Luxembourg, and Oldeberg are discussed, while they raise their military and economic abilities.
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km and Tulpung yr Aber 3000 sq km for the Welsh government. Vassalization of Sumba, off the coast of Tulpung yr Aber, begins. The WTC also oversees the expansion of Chile by 3000 sq km, and Argentium 5000 sq km, on behalf of the Netherland's government. Public education, much like in the motherland, is set up in all Welsh colonies, with a special focus of teaching Brythonic to all people in Dutch colonies to make communication easier. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries. Hobyo-Somalia grows its military and economy, as do Congo and Warqama, which is technically a colony of Congo. The Dutch possesion Indonesia begins to vassalize Pagaruyang. We also begin to make a protectorate out of Jambi, Lampung and Bengkulu. New South Wales grows their economy and military. New Zeeland and the Welsh Antillian Isles are combined into New Zeeland, which is promoted to a vassal. We give Persia the Dutch colony in Persia in exchange for a greatly pro-Brython/Dutch trade deal. We begin to talk with the Arab Federation of the East about renouncing their ties to the failing, original Federation.

  • The Arabian Federation fights the civil war, with many different Sheiks and Emirs fighting for control of the thrones of the killed Sheiks and Emirs. The Federation’s loyal forces convince the Sheik of Bahrain and the Emir of Qatar to re-join the Federation, but other leaders are less willing. Caliph Ishaq declares Caliphate to be fully independent and he begins installing Sharia law over the area. The Sheik of Najran declares himself Emir after taking over large amounts of territory, and he asserts his Emirate’s independence by signing a new border agreement with his neighbouring, newly independent states. The Federation then decides to amend the Federal constitution to give greater state rights and to reflect the Federation’s reduced size and power.

Elsewhere, New Oman expands 4000 sq km inland as many people leave Arabia to escape the war and start a new life in the peaceful New Oman colony.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military as part of King Ezekiel’s intervention in the Arabian Federation’s civil war. The King’s forces leave Arabia after the King decides that the old Federation is no more. King Ezekiel sends diplomats to his new neighbouring nations and builds better relations. This allows the Levant to now get more involved in the Italian revolution, supporting royalist forces and sending in the navy to battle Michel Vendetti’s naval forces. Elsewhere, colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 4500 sq km northward.
  • The Maldives builds up its economy as the new Levantine vassal, sees a new Levant military base being built on the Maldives.

Sakalava and Merina are locked in stalemate, and following several indecisive battles, the two Kings meet to agree to peace. These talks are mediated by the East Africa Federation, and they also begin trying to convince the Kings to join the Federation themselves. With the promise of better economic management by the Arab merchant leaders and being in charge of the Federation’s armies the Kings agree to join the Federation. The Federation using its new military might sends troops over to the Arabian Federation’s Al-Khalil colony to get the rebelling colonials to join the Federation: which after defeating some of the native factions sees Al-Khalil joining the Federation.
  • Italia continues working on its military after what is know known as the Ten Years War. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia start to see the rise of the steam engine to turn gears and power basic machinery. Cloth looms are now starting to be automatically run and decent sized factories spring up. The University of Venice has its operations suspended with the events of the year. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also. Bonaparte backstabs Vendetti in a bid for power, he manages to seize italia and surrounds Venice which is Vendetti's stronghold. After beseiging the city for six months Vendetti is finally killed by a mob of angry Venetians and Bonaparte takes over Italia. Yugoslavia and Hungary also are forced under Bonaparte's rule as a nation in Dynastical Union and a semi-independent vassal respectively, while Albania remains annexed to Italia. Meanwhile ,Bonaparte extends a welcome back to the Italian royal family stating that they may return to the country to negotiate with him. The heir to the Italian throne hatches a plot to assassinate Bonaparte... In Nuovo Venexia the first railroad continues to be laid down between Nuovo Venexia and Fuggeria.
  • Romania and Padang work on their economies. Siam and Malacca work on their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies.
  • Lakota Territory

    The Expanded Lakota Territory.

    Lakota Tribes:
    Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation begins to spread along the Pekitanoui River, mainly in the southern portion, increasing the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continue as more of their skins are used as clothing and teepee coverings, and more of their meat is used to feed the growing population. Most of the Lakota peoples now live in multi-room teepees with three to four rooms each, and these rooms are slightly larger than they have been in the past, with the insides having the buffalo skin reinforced by fence-like wooden walls. The palisade wall idea has been completed on smaller towns closer to the capital Wiconwico U and has now begun to spread to more outlying towns. Chief Watches The Sky decides to keep the new land acquired from expansion for himself, rather than distribute it among clansmen as has been tradition. Trade with the Mayans and Normandy continues.
  • Hunting of the buffalo continues, as many of the Lakota people now live in larger, multi-room teepees, with two to three rooms, and these rooms have grown in size slightly. The capital town of Wiconiwico U continues to grow, with Chief Looks To The Sky deciding an expansion of the palisade wall is needed to accommodate more peoples. It becomes popular throughout the tribal territories with more palisade walls entering construction, but most of them are only near Wiconiwico U, with few outlying towns having such walls entering construction. Chief Looks To The Sky begins to own much of the new land gained from Lakota expansion, and has decided to keep most of it rather than distribute it amongst his people as has been customary.

  • Scandinavian Imperium: Travel is promoted between the Imperium states by the Imperial Cabinet, with cheaper travel offered via Imperium ships, in the hope that it will lead to a mixing of the cultures of the Imperium, and create a 'Melting pot of Europe'. The Scandinavian Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. The Bering Strait islands under Imperium control decide that enough exploration of the lands to their east (OTL Alaska) have taken place, and as of such, small expansion is taken onto the coastal islands. This expansion is merely bringing the trade posts on the islands under official Imperium sovereignty, and preparing for further colonisation over the coming years. Following this change, the number of furs being traded between the rest of the Imperium and the trade posts in Alaska is vastly increased, and a surplus is built up as a result, as of such a number of furs are sent to our Orissan allies, as a sign of friendship. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised. The military keeps the current alert level in place, due to no conflicts currently taking place. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland and the rest of the Imperium.

The formal Apostolic canonization of Matthaus Kappel is announced and Mayan Kappelist leaders are invited to attend the canonization ceremony in Ona Yagich (Mayan Response).
    • The Mayan Empire will send leaders to the ceremony.

1794

The Arabian Federation, fall-of-1794

The world following the fall of the Arabian Federation

MOD ANNOUNCEMENT: The Arabian Federation's civil war ends this year, with their old empire now in ruins, replaced a series o new nations. These nations are stronger than their average NPC counterparts and have a special NPC bonus described here on the talk page. The new nations are shown in the map opposite ~Von.

Gold is struck in New Oman starting a gold rush of settlers moving to the colony. All of the new money and wealth created by the rush ends up causing the colonial government to declare independence from the Arabian Federation so they can keep all of the gold money for themselves and not pay taxes to their colonial masters. As a result New Oman expands inland a lot as the search for even more gold drives expansion, which in turn causes the New Omani economy to increase loads (+8 economic development bonus)

Gold deposits in Australia for those interested ~Von.
I'm glad someone's using the map I found ;)Callumthered (talk)

  • Suddeutsches Reich: The Communication Corps of Bavaria and of Saxony unveil their latest creation: a small, roughly cannon-sized version of the Schappe telegraph. Transmitters (with an operator and guard) can be laid in an army's tracks, allowing it to retain a connexion with the main, fixed lines. Initial tests are successful, allowing a general in Nuremberg to communicate with a major in the middle of nowhere in a matter of an hour. As well as this breakthrough, the Bavarian inventor of the gas balloon proves the effectiveness of his invention in reconnaisance. He begins experimeation with a navigable model of the balloon, with a rudder. However, initial trials are not particularly successful. Bavaria and Dresden both continue to industrialise. Water wheels are used extensively throughout the European empire, and steam engines grow in popularity with entrepreneurs. Quite a few sections of road are tendered to turnpike trusts, and many trusts are formed to profit from the increasing amount of trade. In Anhalt, the gains made by the loyalist army are lost after an army unit mutinies and joins the Annists. For the first time, the Prince allows state-owned serfs to enter the army, in an effort to contain the rebels.

The new Yemeni nations of San’a, Aden, Hadhramaut and Salalah are among the first to re-open trading with the Federation, but quickly Oman, Shaybah, Ar Rayn, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Khafji also re-start trade relations. Following years of emergency government, Sultan elections take place and the Federation’s ten regional leaders appoint Sheik Abdul-Hamid of Ajman as the new Sultan.

The Federation’s 16 regional leaders meet this year in the new Federal Capital building built in Fomboni, and they write up the new constitution of the Federation drawing on the Arabian Federation’s, the Comchellak constitution and the Icelandic Imperium’s. The Federation takes a revolutionary change though, and creates a series of state government which are ruled by that nation's own constitution (e.g., Merina as a constitutional monarchy and Mafia as a democratic republic). Whereas the Federal government is to be ruled by officials elected from each of the member states' individual governments on a six-year basis. The rather confusing system manages to impress the regional leaders on its technical fairness but the average man is still confused by the government system. This confusion combined with certain state's desire for a true democratic state ran by the people for the people, sees the rise in an educated politics and idealists. A renaissance of political ideology descends upon the nation, led by the democratic nations of Mafia, Zanzibar, Al-Khalil and Mombasa.

Florence and a few other cities in central Italia start to see the rise of the steam engine to turn gears and power basic machinery. Cloth looms are now starting to be automatically run and decent sized factories spring up. The University of Venice resumes chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons.

  • Scandinavian Imperium: Travel continues to be promoted between the Imperium states by the Imperial Cabinet, with cheaper travel offered via Imperium ships, in the continuing hope that it will lead to a mixing of the cultures of the Imperium, and create a 'Melting pot of Europe'. This is beginning to show signs of taking place, as the rate of internal resettlement begins to increase. The Scandinavian Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. More small expansion is taken onto the coastal islands off the coast of OTL Alaska. This expansion brings more of the trade posts on the islands under official Imperium sovereignty, and opens the way for further colonisation over the coming years. An official offer for a trade pact and alliance is sent to the nation of France, along with a substantial gift of Alaskan furs. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised, which is now having substantial effects on the armed forces capabilities. The military lowers the alert level once again, bringing it to its lowest level in nearly a decade. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. The idea of 'Imperial Citizenship' begins to be spread, with each citizen giving equal value to their State Citizenship and Imperial Citizenship. This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Iceland and the rest of the Imperium. An offer is sent tp Russia, offering twenty years of substantial payments made up of a mixture of currency and resources, in return for the purchase of the island of Novaya Zemlya and the two islands to its south.
  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation begins to spread along the Pekitanoui River, mainly in the southern portion, increasing the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continue as more of their skins are used as clothing and teepee coverings, and more of their meat is used to feed the growing population. Most of the Lakota peoples now live in multi-room teepees with three to four rooms each, and these rooms are slightly larger than they have been in the past, with the insides having the buffalo skin reinforced by fence-like wooden walls. The palisade wall idea has been completed on smaller towns closer to the capital Wiconwico U and has now begun to spread to more outlying towns. Minor dissent grows from Chief Looks At The Sky and how he has kept the land to himself. He however, has not yet distributed the land.

  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Military continues to expand, the proliferation of invasive Penguin Lilies in the Teushen and Tehuelche land has the unintended side effect of causing a population boom due to peasants eating the abundant lilies. However, there is concern about te effect the lilies are causing declining catches of river fish. Great Chief Damasus, advancing in age, suffers a fall down a flight of stairs and is paralyzed from the waist down. The courtiers prepare him a wheeled chair to move about, but questions are raised about his health and he is rarely seen in public as great pains are taken to ensure that the nature of his ailment is not known to the public. Riots erupt in K'onip as the government in Ona Yagich become less responsive to the overcrowding problem, which is being eased only slightly by the increase in ships leaving for Yagich Atticus' settlement at Yagich Rachel.
  • Apstolic Church: Prime Bishop Eutychianus continues the integregration of Kappelist teachings into the Apostolic Faith, as Brother Lando uses his spare time to write the first authoritative apostiolic biography of Saint Matthaus Kappel. A general sense of restlessness grows in the court as the seemingly endless fighting in Europe grinds to a stalemate. The Brythonic Davidians are especially uncomfortable in their exile and wish to know whether they will ever be able to return. Meanwhile, a faction of Maugholdians pressures the Prime Bishop to consider permaently relocating the church hieracrchy to Ona Yagich, as Europe is becoming increasingly unsafe and fractured. Brother Polycarp is a vocal member of this faction, saying at one point, "Why abandon a Haruwin in a peaceful golden age to return to a Europe that seems to be entering a Second Dark Age? What has Europe to offer but blood and death?"

The Federation sees a rise in the calls for a new federal government system, and the movement is led by several of the leaders of the Federation’s member states. This sparks several riots and demonstrations across the Federation as the new Federal government system put forward by the owner of the Zanzibar Stone Town library, the great intellectual Barghash. Barghash is summoned to meet with the Federation’s state leaders and after many hours of talks, they agree to implement a new constitution based on Barghash’s proposals. The main difference is that while the Federal government is a proportionally representative system using a congress of men elected by their constituency’s citizens, the state governments will remain ruled by that nation’s own constitution (e.g. Merina as a constitutional monarchy and Mafia as a democratic republic) but now no absolute monarchies exist within the Federation as all states are required to have a constitution. This annoys the King Radama of Sakalava, who wishes to maintain his absolute authority, and he threatens a rebellion against the Federation. Fortunately the Sakalavan generals agree with the new Federal constitution and they kill King Radama in a coup d’état to establish Sakalava as a republic. King Andrianampoinimerina of the Merina and the Sheik lords of the former Comchellakan states see this and agree to constitutional monarchy systems devised by Barghash in order to remain in power. With this the Federation becomes a true democratic state, and Barghash becomes President of the Federation after winning the first election. The father of the republic begins implanting a new system of Federal offices in each of the Federation’s Congressional constituencies, from which each member of congress can lead local councils to run the constituency from and so the people have a place to go and vote in federal and state elections.
  • Persian Empire: MILITARY IS BUILT UP TO 300,000!
  • Is this some sort of joke?
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Military and economy continue to be built up. Great Chief Damasus is almost never seen in public and the government becomess unresponsive. The royalist factions become more popular in K'onip by the day and cause riots on the island regularly. Occasional royalist protests are also started on the Mainland. However, relations with the Ethiopians continue to deepen and more and more young Selk'nam are sent to Addis Ababa for schooling.
  • Apostolic Church: Increasingly the church hierarchy gives up hope of returning to Europe in the short term. Prime Bishop Eutychianus is said to be growing weary of the office.
  • I'm going to keep with this stalemate storyline with the church until the war algorithm is resolved - which sounds like it probably won't happen soon.
  • The first plans for railways arrive in Germanica this year. The plans for a new colony are complete and it will be established next year. Meanwhile, the first rails are laid down between Berlin and Kroklaw. Paper begins to be mass produced in Mysore, and steam mills become more rampant in Neu Berlin. Neu Berlin invades the Cree nation, expecting a small scale war and an easy conquest. Neu Prussen begins to filter small scale propaganda into the Nya Syriacan island. Neu Berlin offers to buy the northernmost colony of Italia in exchange for recognition of the new government. (Kind of like America buying Louisiana.) Urbanization begins in Neu Prussen and Saint Maximin (capital of Neu Prussen) begins to challenge Neu Berlin as a city, and Neu Prussen becomes a popular Antillian tourist destination. Large factories begin to be built around Berlin. Germanica and all Dominions build up their militaries.
  • Apache: The Council of Elders sends a delegation of four to the Apostolic Church to find common ground and talk theology. The delegation consists of one Shaman, one Gaoist Cultist Priest and two Roman Catholic Priests (one European born, the other Apachean born). A State sponsored Merchant Guild request permission to trade in the Pacific and to use Mayan ships. All Pacific nations that want to trade with the Apache please acknowledge. Military is built up and some of the southern border tribes convert to Kappelist beliefs. When can I start industrializing?
    • ​1840, according to the industrialization chart.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Kappelist influence is exerted over Apache. Steam power and water wheels are incorporated in the southern part of the Empire. Chemistry is investigated and researched. Chorotega and Boruca continue build-up as trade hubs and industrial leaders. Chichen Itza and Tenochtitlan, as well as other major cities in the Empire, urbanize. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia, especially Brandenburg. The Juun family continues setting up schools. More universities are established in middle class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. Training drills are conducted by the military. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca. Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 5150 km and Haven expands 3100 km.
  • The Eskimo Nation is founded upon the belief that all people should have equal say in the government. It claims an area of 200 km in far north North America. [Did I do that right? :)]
  • Yes.
  • Mali: Mali expands by 10,000 sq km to the NE. Gabu, Mossi and Wolof contribute to the economy.
  • Russia works on its military. Industrial production is amped up, and more funds are given to scientists. The death rate is rapidly decreasing as a result of better understanding of anatomy. Russia grudgingly continues its stance on Scandinavia. Socialism grows. The Russian North America Act passes the Duma granting the colonies independence with accord to the agreements reached in the Novgorod Conference.
  • Minsk works on its economy. Industry builds up at an exponential rate. More textile factories emerge all around the nation, as the resource of the twin-piston steam engine is being used exquisitely well.
  • Ukraine works on its military to improve defence as it is now tasked with partrolling its borders. The First Posadnik of the Ukrainian Duma is inaugurated.
  • The Grand Principality of Suur-Suomi works on its military. Orthodoxy begins to take hold in major cities such as Helsinki and Taalinn.
  • The Federated Duchy of the Caucasus works on its economic ties, and tries to stay open to trade competition. The EATA movement grows.
  • Riga works on its economy and continues construction of a merchant fleet of its own.
  • Scandinavian Imperium: Travel continues to be promoted between the Imperium states by the Imperial Cabinet, with cheaper travel offered via Imperium ships, in the continuing hope that it will lead to a mixing of the cultures of the Imperium, and create a 'Melting pot of Europe'. This is beginning to show signs of taking place, as the rate of internal resettlement begins to increase. The Scandinavian Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. More small expansion is taken onto the coastal islands off the coast of OTL Alaska. This expansion brings more of the trade posts on the islands under official Imperium sovereignty, and opens the way for further colonisation over the coming years. An official offer for a trade pact and alliance is sent to the nation of France once again, along with a substantial gift of Alaskan furs. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised, which is now having substantial effects on the armed forces capabilities. The military lowers the alert level once again, bringing it to its lowest level in years. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. The idea of 'Imperial Citizenship' begins to be spread, with each citizen giving equal value to their State Citizenship and Imperial Citizenship. This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between the Imperium states. An offer is once again sent to Russia, offering twenty years of substantial payments made up of a mixture of currency and resources, in return for the purchase of the island of Novaya Zemlya and the two islands to its south. After seeing the growing Imperium sentiments within the nation of Lithuania, a number of recon groups are sent through Prussian countryside to the state, with the goal of infiltrating the military and further promoting Pro-Imperium sentiments, with the hope that the current government will be overthrown.
  • United Kingdom of Antillia: Grand Duke Ludwig of Germanica is crowned in Montreal as King Ludwig I of Antillia. He orders massive infrastructure to begin being built, mostly roads and post offices. He also orders the expansion of southern region of the country northward by 15,000 km squared. We make contact with the Lakota tribes and ask for an alliance. A ship on its way to India is blown off course and lands in China, making the first contact between the two, King Ludwig visits the Netherlands and ask to buy their Texas colony.
  • The United Maharajya sees a time of easing anger, yet the people still feel they should have done better than they did in the war and hope that this can be mended later on. Uttashina expands 9200 km.
  • Mataram amps up its army as it readies up for a war much closer to home to claim their rightful lands back. Meanwhile, the vassals also expand army and up their trading helping to let the economy grow. Naya Bihar amps up army and expands inland by 15,000 km. Rajputana also expands their army and amps up economy with more trading. Naya Punjab expands 9200 km.

1796

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies improve, while agriculture continues developing in Castille. Meanwhile in Aragon and Portugal, industrialization continues, and Meanwhile in Castille, the canal's construction continues. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 3000 sq km and Angola expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, Maranhão expands 6000 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, the Viceroy, Garcia Manrique de Lara, asks for assistance with dealing with the bandits in the space between São Vicente and Minas Gerais. This request is accepted, and some Portuguese forces are sent to Brasil, practically declaring war on the "Free Brazil", as an official declaration of war can't be made, as the Portuguese don't recognize them as a state. Meanwhile in Portugal, given the discrepancies between Castillian and Portuguese units of measure, Afonso XII decides to attempt to standardize the units on both countries, by way of creating a new unit instead of favouring one or the other. As a result, an assembly under the auspices of the "Academia das Ciências de Lisboa" is set up to investigate measures and weights.
  • Mwenemutapa Garcia's efforts to establish Christianity in his kingdom continue, and the Church in Mutapa continues to include elements of Shona theology. Meanwhile, more people start to convert to Christianity. Mutapa then expands 3000 sq km.
  • Germanica and its Dominions build up their militaries. Germanica offers the Suddeutsches Reich a non aggression pact. Germanica decides that the new colony will not be created. (This is because there is no suitable coastline left in the whole world!) Meanwhile, the Dominion of Neu Berlin dominates the Cree nation and begins to integrate them into the German fold. Neu Berlin expands 15,000 sq km into Wisconsin, reaching the Novorossiya (Mississippi) River. The idea of a Supreme Destiny, a nation reaching from the Atlantic to the Oriental Ocean becomes very popular, especially in the southern province. A debate erupts in the Neu Berliner Reichstag about diving up the Cree nation into two or more provinces. Also, Vinland and Neu Berlin hold referenda over union. The results are that Vinland and Neu Berlin will be merged. Prime Minister Ritz vows that the new, larger Dominion of Neu Berlin will come to be a grand nation one day. Kaiser Ludwig in Germanica seeks to approach the Prussians with union, and this becomes a popular idea in both nations. Courland is a massive proponent of this, and lands seven seats in favor of the movement into the Reichstag. The Dominion of Mysore begins to recover from the war and continues massive industrialization and urbanization, as do Neu Prussen and Neu Berlin. Orientalia experiences a population boom, thanks to immigrants moving in from Mysore and Chimu. Chimu expands 15,000 sq km south along the Italian territory. Neu Berlin again offers to purchase the Italian colony south of it (as far the OTL southern border of Virginia). The first telegraph lines are laid down in Germanica and semaphore towers begin construction in Neu Berlin. In Neu Berlin, a new balloon is developed with better steering, as well as higher flying.
    • Suddeutsches Reichs Diplomacy: The Imperial Landtag suggests a twenty year pact, which can be renewed (so I don't mean twenty years of peace followed immediately by war). The Ambassador does ask that the Germanican government pay some royalties to the Schape brothers (as inventors of the semaphore) and Montigrue (as inventor of the steerable balloon). Whilst we enjoy the propogation of Suddeutsches ingenuity, the inventors do deserve reward for their work.
    • The Germanic Reich and its Dominions grant all three requests.
    • Antillian Diplomacy: The Antillians ask Germanica and its Dominions for a Right of Passage as to allow for better connection between the two parts of Antillia.
    • OK, first of all, you have to recognize that the Dominions are separate from Germanica. This doesn't even involve Germanica. And second of all, No. The UKA is able to connect by going around the continent.
    • So essentially, even though I have a Germanican King we're still on unfriendly terms.
    • Who's on unfriendly terms? The correct term is neutral.
  • Imperium Africana expands its military, economy and infrastructure, including those of the vassals. The colony Bärädä is expanded by 4000 km as part of the Imperium's desire to fast-track the expansion of its isolated colony. Thousands of Ethiopians move to Normandy, displacing the native population, and forcing them to move overseas to other holdings of Africana. Some 12,000 Ethiopians volunteer to move to the cold land as fishers and whalers, and aid in the expansion of the tiny colony. Plans to fast-track the development of the other colonies if Bärädä's growth is deemed a success are planned for the future. Elsewhere, the Ethiopian population in Normandy since the conquest of Normandy in 1789 is 78,130, a rise from the inital 7500 that arrived as the wives and children of the original Ethiopian invasion force that landed in Normandy.
  • The Mononobe Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation and in the colony of Miyako.

More air furnaces are also built. Meanwhile, urbanisation continues throughout the nation. More steam power is built, and a few water wheels are built. Aid and clean up continues to areas affected by the volcanoes.
  • The Federal Republic of Tojiko continues to build up its military and expands by 4100 sq km. Elections for the President office are held and Akiyama Kiyotsuna wins the election. As a result, Akiyama Kiyotsuna becomes the first President of Tojiko.
  • Great Brython's King, Madoc IV, spends half of the year in Great Brython, and continues to place his focus on rebuilding the nations after a series of costly wars. Our relations continue to turn more and more isolationist in regard to war, as many Brythons are tired after rapid succession of four large wars. Madoc IV continues to call on all Scots, Irish and Bretons to take care of the Penguin Lilies and prevent future problems but it appears the problems are just starting as many original plants are almost made extinct. Madoc IV declares the War on the Lily, and hopes that the issues can be resolved within a few years. As the extinction of many notable, native plants come close, a huge conservationist movement is founded, reaching major support with the merchants and aristocrats, alongside Prince Gavin. The Christian Soldiers of St. David of Wales continue to expand their efforts to convert and spread Apostolic Catholocism, and continue efforts in all newly conquered states, many of which are already Anapaptist or Catholic, which the Apostolic Church both recognize. Economy grows.
  • The Netherlands' Dutch populace continues to be favorable to the Welsh, and a large movement begins for each nation's citizens to learn the others' language. As such, Brythonic and Dutch both become popular, and are used almost intermixedly in business hubs like Amsterdam, Utrecht, and Rotterdam. Brythonic troops continue to integrate the Dutch Navy and make the two nations' vessels into one effective navy. The military grows. Meanwhile, a new map for Cleves, Liege, Luxembourg, and Oldeberg is proposed, while they raise their military and economic abilities.
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of Tulpung yr Aber 6000 sq km for the Welsh government. Vassalization of Sumba, off the coast of Tulpung yr Aber, continues (year 4). The WTC also oversees the expansion of Chile by 3000 sq km, and Argentium 5000 sq km, on behalf of the Netherland's government. Public education, much like in the motherland, is set up in all Welsh colonies, with a special focus of teaching Brythonic to all people in Dutch colonies to make communication easier. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries. Hobyo-Somalia and Kongo grow military and economy. The Dutch possesion Indonesia incorporates Pagaruyang. We also finish making a protectorate out of Jambi, Lampung and Bengkulu. which begins to be collectively refered to as Sumatra. New South Wales and New Zeeland grow their economy and military.

  • Cyrenaica continues to participate in EE discussions and expands 10,000 sq km into the desert.
  • Apache: The military is improved upon by purchasing modern weapons from arms merchant and successfully reverse engineering them. A trade mission is sent to the Mononobe Shogunate and another to France. More southern border tribes are converting to Kappelism and the Catholic tribes are worrying that the new faith will over run the new faith. The Bishop of Ekta has sent out missionary's to convert the tribes back.
  • China expands its military and economy as the devastated cities are rebuilt. New Manchuria expands by 8000 sq km to the north while Baitudu expands by 4000 sq km south. Urbanization in many big cities continues as the steam engine makes its way to China. China extends an offer to Ethiopia to renew the non-aggression pact in exchange for Ethiopia's Canadian colony.
    • Imperium Africana: We are not interested in selling a profitable colony in exchange for peace with the world's hermit kingdom. Thank you for the gesture, but no.
    • Chinese Diplomacy: We're very exclusive who we trade with. We try to keep our goods in the markets of civilized nations. Don't feel left out.
    • I think he means Alaska, which is not profitable, and China is not hermit ATL, as demonstrated by their colonies.
    • First, you don't know if that colony is profitable or not, as I have not posted its income so your statement is entirely based on opinion. Second, I meant hermit in that the Chinese have made few political moves on the world stage. In either case, I've made my point already in the response. ~Viva
    • There's nothing there. How much could you really get from it, other than from some small scale fishing?
    • I think I went over this already. Alaska has whales. Whales can be processed into whale oil. Whale oil was a major commodity at the time. Major commodities equal major profits. Simple. Now, what does Ethiopia have to gain from some funky treaty with China? In terms of actual worth, my tiny "unprofitable" colony is worth much more. ~Viva
    • What, you mean that little icelocked colony where the closest water is a few miles out from the ice? I doubt it.
    • I'm still trying to find the part where I'm supposed to care. Oh, and if the colony is so stinkin' unprofitable, why does Crimson want it? Answer me that. ~Viva
    • Do I look like I'm Crim?
    • I'm pretty sure I asked why does Crim want it. Not Scraw. If I wanted to know why you wanted it, I'm sure I would have used your name. ~Viva
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Guinea expands by 2000 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar. The 17th improved wooden sawmill is built in Northern Myanmar, with a production of 200 kg lumber daily. The 17th iron workshop is built in Southern Myanmar with 100 kg of iron made daily. The 12th air furnace is built. More rifles are built. More schools are built. The army begins training vigorously. We help Chinese families rebuild their homes. We begin to give families cheap education. Myanmar is now fairly industrialized. Steam engine makes its way into Myanmar.
  • Myanmar D: We wish China will collaborate with us to enlarge our foreign influence, which can be easily met because of our industrialization.
  • The Arabian Federation builds up its economy to recover from the civil war, and Sultan Abdul-Hamid decides to try to see if any of the old Federation members want to rejoin but they largely refuse to do so. Meaning the Sultan sends out an expedition fleet to go and find new lands for the Federation to colonize, and he sends diplomats to other nations to have them form trade deals with the Federation.
  • East Africa Federation 1796

    The 10 nations of the East Africa Federation

    The East Africa Federation builds up its economy to recover from the civil war and to help unify the new nation. President Barghash oversees the building of the new system of Federal offices in each of the Federation's Congressional constituencies, and he also forms the Federation into ten national blocs: Mombasa, Zanzibar, Mafia, Mtwara, Comoros, Seychelles, Al Nawzalak, Sakalava, Merina and Al Khalil following the dynastic unions of some of the Sheikdom clans over the years, accumulating in this year’s joining of the Sheikdoms of Ngazidja and Bambao in the Comoros. Elsewhere, Ndzuwani’s Sheik dies heirless after developing dementia and killing his family, allowing the Sheik of Seselwa to claim the throne of Ndzuwani.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military as part of King Ezekiel’s intervention in the Italian war. The Duke of Nusantara manages to keep order in the Italian colonies to the east of his Dukedom. Elsewhere, colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 4500 sq km northward.
  • The Maldives builds up its economy as the new Levantine vassal, which sees a new Levant military base being built on the Maldives. The Maldives also annexes the Foalhavahi colony into the Sultanate itself, and the Sultan declares himself to be Sultan of the Maldives and Foalhavahi islands.
  • Suddeutsches Reich: The telegraph network is expanded, with a connection to the new Germanic network. However, with other countries beginning to use the system, the Communications Corps of the armies develop codes to encrypt military-related messages. The Schappe Brothers release their "Definitive Telegraphic Dictionary" containing all the signals and signal combinations, to be used for all civilian messages in all countries using the system. The book can easily be translated literally into other languages, if non-German speakers start using the system. With his dreams of a steerable balloon starting to fade, Freiherr Montigrue begins to develop the balloon's potential for stationary observation. After a meeting with the Schappe brothers, a small semaphore device is invented which can be suspended below a floating balloon, giving the aeronauts the ability to communicate with the ground. Initial trials prove the system's potential. Albrecht Jener continues his tests on a smallpox vaccine, and by the end of the year has established a foundation to provide inoculation to the most at-risk people. The inventor's exploits are noticed by the Emperor and Empress, who knight him for his services to mankind. Bavaria continues to industrialise, as does Eastern Saxony. In Anhalt, the introduction of a semaphore network sparks more outrage amongst Annists, and non-Annist extremist Catholics, who see the invention as spreading the heretical, foreign words of the Germanic church. This causes a new spate in violence. Cologne expands its military. Overseas: the Kingdom of Tanimbarkai declares war on the neighbouring island-state of Sumba. The King's powerful and relatively modern army establishes a beachhead, along with support from Saxony and Bavaria. (Mods, should I make an algorithm for this?) The kingdom also works on improving education in conjunction with the Magdeburger missionaries and Saxon education officials. Bavarian Indonesia conrinues to industrialise, especially in Borneo. Sasak is also developed. Bavarian Australis, with its booming population and pearl trade, expands West to the maximum extent. Saxon Australis experiences a boom due to gold-miners using Saint Boniface as a port-of-call on the way to New Oman, and also due to the growing trade with Tanimbarkai. It expands 1000 sq km West along the coast. Khmer Koch begins building ships for the Saxon navy. Saxon West Africa espands 1000 sq km inland, and the telegraph system begins connecting isolated towns with the capital. The Guinea Schutzgebiet improves its educational system.
    • Yes, Sumba has been around for a while so they ain't going to give up without a fight ~Von
  • Meccan Sultanate: After the recent split from the Arab Federation they begin to rebuild. They also send people to help rebuild in other nations in the Arab Peninsula. We build up our military, as any more outbreaks of war occur. We also work on establishing relations with other nations in Arabia and Europe.
  • United Kingdom of Antillia: King Ludwig makes his first spech to Parliament, asking them to approve a claims treaty with the other powers of Antillia. The Parliament approves. He also orders the expansion of southern region of the country northward by 15,000 km squared. We celebrate our new alliance with powerful Ethiopia. King Ludwig visits the Netherlands and ask to buy their Texas colony, and he calls for an International Conference to discuss the making of claims and such for the Antillian interior.
    • Antillian Diplomacy: We offer China a trade deal.
  • Italia focuses on rebuilding the damage from the civil war. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia start to see the rise of the steam engine to turn gears and power basic machinery. Cloth looms are now starting to be automatically run and decent sized factories spring up. The University of Venice resumes chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also. The end of the Italian Civil War is declared as the last partisans are defeated in the mountains.
  • Romania and Padang work on their economies. Siam and Malacca work on their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies. The Levantine Kingdom works on maintaining its eastern border with the chaotic remains of the Arabian Federation and its vassals threatening the stability of the region.
  • France: Nouvelle Bourgogne expands 2500 sq km around the territory of Chimu, while Baie d'Eric (Erik's Bay) expand by 1500 sq km inland and Brasilea expands by 2000 sq km inland underneath the Cypriot colony and Baie d'Notre Dame expands by 4500 sq km sq km Inland Northward School system is devastated, but the growth starts. Military is built up. The Germans are offered an alliance to avoid further conflict as the population and the kingdom is tired for such wars, with Germany or other nations.Vassalization of Basotho continues, while this the armies are increased and the presence on the African west coast begins. While this king Louis XV is crowned in paris, as Rex Franciae, Magister Milites Galliae et Imperator Africanum, as Ruler of France, He in Dijon the center of the French senate agrees on several new laws such as the equal rights of Kappelists, Orthodox and Nestorians throughout the empire and on French soil. He is the first king of France to rule most of the French soil since the beginning of his reign, he begins a more aggressive expansion starting with Baie de Notre Dame, he also begins the policy of allowing free entrance to the fleeing Norman population to France and to ask the Norman government-in-exile to settle in French territory until a solution can be given to them by the French confederacy members. It asures the alliance to the Dutch Netherlands and prompts the Carthaginian army to building up defenses along the Mauritanian-Morocco border in Africa

Meanwhile in Brasil, the Portuguese forces, along with the joint effort of the colonial militias of São Vicente, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, manage to make the raids problem be reduced. However, many of the bandits continue hiding out outside of São Vicente and Minas Gerais, and the raids still continue, albeit in a smaller quantity. As a result, it is decided to start to attack said territory. Meanwhile in Portugal, the committee, having decided that counting and weights and measures should use the same radix, debates the use of the duodecimal system as an alternative the decimal system. Eventually the committee decides that the advantages of divisibility by three and four are outweighed by the complications of introducing a duodecimal system and recommend to the Emperor that weights and measures should all be based on a decimal system. After examining the possible standards, The committee's final report to the Emperor in December recommends the meridional definition for the unit of length. The proposal is accepted.
  • Mwenemutapa Garcia's efforts to establish Christianity on his kingdom continue, and the Church in Mutapa continues to include elements of Shona theology. Meanwhile, more people continue to convert to Christianity. The military is expanded.
  • Germanica and its Dominions build up their militaries. The attempted Lithuanian invasion is a massive failure and troops move in from the Courland region and Poland, swiftly capturing the nation and imprisoning the perpetrators. Germanic language and culture begins to be spread into Lithuania, and for the most part, Lithuanians are glad to be part of an industrialized and stable nation. Celebrations occur now that Courland is finally connected to Germanica proper. The people in Courland and Lithuania continue to push for a union with Prussia, and Prussians begin to acknowledge this as well. Germanica continues to experience a massive population boom, as well as massive industrialization. The railway tracks and telegraph lines are expanded, and Germanica develops its own personal telegraph code system, developed by Ernst Stov. Stov's system becomes nationalized, and the system will be updated after every war so that enemies will not know the code. Stov is later appointed to head the Department of Wartime Function.
    • Are you pushing for union with my Prussia? if so I'm open to the idea now that I've returned.
    • Dude, you are ahead of time with industrialising. Railway does not appear for you until 1800.
    • 1: Yes, I am, Kun. 2: I'm orange. As seen in my Austria, which is part on the main nation. The map never got fixed, and then I lost Austria, so it's all confusing.
  • Neu Berlin expands 15,000 sq km along the Myami (Ohio) River. Supreme Destiny becomes more and more popular. It is decided that the Cree nation will be divied in three: Keewatin (easternmost), Keskatchooan (westernmost), and Cree (central). New cities are designed for the capitals of each of the provinces and Prime Minister Ritz once again vows to make Neu Berlin a grand and strong nation. Neu Berlin again wishes to purchase the Italian colony south of it. (As far the border of the gray border colony.)

  • Bayern- Constituant state of the Suddeutches Reich: Bavaria expands industry. Studies into a potential smallpox vaccine are continued. Telegraph systems continue to be set up. Bavarian Australis continues to see a population boom, pearl sells are skyrocketing. Broomestadt undergoes extensive building, the city now closely resembles Munchen in Bavaria. The Prime Minister creates the post for Foreign War Communications, and begins to work on codes. A division is set up with the sole job of cracking foreign codes. The FWC will be a post in the newly formed Bureau of War and Arms. The Prime Minister still continues to maintain that Bavaria will remain neutral in foreign affairs. Bavarian Indonesia expands infrastructure due to the booming economy. Bavaria enters into negotiations with France over South Tyrol, wanting to purchase the land due to the fact that it is cut off from main France and holds no real value to the French. Karl Minsk invents the 'writing machine" a reatively small device that allows you to type using a key set and typface, vs normal handwriting."(This is a really early typewriter, Henry Mills in 1714 patented the first "writing machine", it is still quite primitive until the mid to late 1800's) Currently it is rather bulky and hard to use and is not commercially selling well, though the military expresses interest in the device.
  • The Navajo continue to settle and improve upon the first large scale Navajo settlement going away from the hunter gatherer lifestyle most have been living and more toward a settled living. More Agriculture is developed and more small scale mines are being developed but they are extremely dangerous. The Leader of this new Navajo Nation is named Ahiga. His rise to power within the tribes is mostly due to his diplomatic skills in the ability of getting many of the tribes together to found a permanent settlement and establish agriculture, and organize the tribes previous resources in a way of building a city.
  • (I have posted before. It's just been a while)
    • ​I would recommend choosing another nation. Most of the land has already been taken by the Mayans and the Apache.
    • If you do want to choose another nation, I have a beautiful little vassal (the county of Cologne) in Europe, and a nice protectorate (the Guinea Schutzgeiet) in Africa which you could play. If you were interested. Callumthered (talk) 04:42, August 18, 2013 (UTC)

  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: After several years of quiet development the nation is thrown back onto the world stage as their Lord Protector dies. After his death many Prussians reveal they felt that Markus's rule was draconian and the Adligenrat decides that there should be a public election on the matter to ensure that there is more public approval, they decide that a limit of land with assure that they have support from Junkers and begin the election. The progressive ideas of their South German allies influence the Junkers decision in these elections greatly. Meanwhile, the Prūsiskan Perôni is finishing its third rolling mill in Prussia and the nation is now fairly industrialised. Militaristically the nation has a large military standing force that bases itself on a strategy of heavy artillery support, arming itself with a variety of light, medium and heavy cannon. (mil-turn)
  • Laītawiskas Protektorat: Having undergone mass industrialisation due to the advantages of its support for companies, the nation now is very rich compared to its poor eastern kinsmen. The military is still composed of the Censors which act as also as a civil order force, now with more funding they are trained and armed better than most troops in Europe. (mil-turn)
  • Saxony (constituent kingdom of the Suddeutsches Reich): Work continues on improving the telegraph network. To facilitate speed of comunications and to keep up with an increasing demand, work begins on building a second tower next to each already existing tower. That way, two messages travelling in opposite directions can be sent simultaneously! Although the treasury does have to pay a substantial amount of money for it, the Telecommunications Department is convinced that the revenue collected from private messages will cover the costs within two years, after which, the entire system will make the government money. Sir Jener begins actively propogating his new vaccine, and on the request of the Mayor of Hann. Munden, he and his associates begin a programme to eradicate smallpox from the small town within ten years. The town of Hann. Munden gives him 1000 Adlers to fund the project. The army is expanded a bit, epecially the communications corps. Karl Minsk's "writing machine" causes some interest amongst academics. However, its bulky and cumbersome nature makes it unsuitable for widespread use. The Annist insurgency in Anhalt is relatively quiet this year. Cologne's Count Leopold dies suddenly in his sleep, and he is succeeded by his son Rupprecht. The new Count devotes himself to improving the nation's industry and international prestige, and he invests his own personal fortune in the establishment of "Cologne Porcelain Co." Overseas now: After some heavy fighting, the war in Sumba comes to a close, with the latter ceding the Eastern 23.5% of the island to Tanimbarkai. The populace of the Kingdom is overjoyed, and the king thanks both his Saxon overlords and his Bavarian friends for their assistance. For the remainder of the year, he focuses on cementing his rule through public works. Saxon Australis expands 1000 sq km West along the coast. The mayor of Saint Boniface begins a massive port-restructuring process with the aim of making SB into THE port of call for ships in the area. Khmer Koch continues building ships for the navy, with the SMS Kaiserin Charlotte already completed and given a full Khmer complement (excepting most of the officers, of course. Saxon West Africa expands 1000 sq km inland, and the Guinea Schutzgebiet the same amount West.
  • Caliphate of Hejaz: The military vastly grows with the Caliph's reforms. Also, trade around the area improves the economy. The Caliph also demands we continue the Arab Feds path of industrialization. We continue rebuilding here and in other nations affected by the civil war.
  • Italia focuses on rebuilding the damage from the civil war. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia start to see the rise of the steam engine to turn gears and power basic machinery. Cloth looms are now starting to be automatically run and decent sized factories spring up. The University of Venice resumes chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Nuovo Venexia expands by 8500 sq km also.
  • Romania and Padang work on their economies. Siam and Malacca work on their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies. The Levantine Kingdom works on maintaining its eastern border with the chaotic remains of the Arabian Federation and its vassals threatening the stability of the region.
    • It isn't really that chaotic now, plus since the Levant's border is mainly with Baghdad they are fine since Baghdad didn't have any wars or stuff. Just them declaring themselves no longer a vassal of the Federation. In fact they were helping to stablize the region a bit.
  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation begins to spread along the Pekitanoui River, mainly in the southern portion, increasing the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continue as more of their skins are used as clothing and teepee coverings, and more of their meat is used to feed the growing population. Most of the Lakota peoples now live in multi-room teepees with three to four rooms each, and these rooms are slightly larger than they have been in the past, with the insides having the buffalo skin reinforced by fence-like wooden walls. The palisade wall idea has been completed on smaller towns closer to the capital Wiconwico U and has now begun to spread to more outlying towns. Chief Looks To The Sky begins to process of distributing the land, but in a different style than before. He only gives land to those who pledge to give a portion of what they catch and farm to the whole of the Lakota farms, creating a tribal feudal system of land distribution in the newly expanded provinces.
  • Scandinavian Imperium: The Scandinavian Imperium sends an alliance and trade pact offer to Italia. Travel continues to be promoted between the Imperium states by the Imperial Cabinet, with cheaper travel offered via Imperium ships, in the continuing hope that it will lead to a mixing of the cultures of the Imperium, and create a 'Melting pot of Europe'. The rate that this is taking place increases, with the rate of internal resettlement increasing once again. The Scandinavian Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. It is hoped that Svalbard will be completely colonised within the next few years. It is decided that a new plan of expansion shall be implemented, focusing mainly on the Arctic Sea west of Greenland. A number of small islands are brought under Imperium sovereignty in the Arctic Sea as a result. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised, which is now having substantial effects on the armed forces capabilities. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. The idea of 'Imperial Citizenship' begins to be spread, with each citizen giving equal value to their State Citizenship and Imperial Citizenship. This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. This is starting to show signs of promise, with many of the Imperium's citizens priding themselves on their Imperium citizenship, as well as their own individual nationalities. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between the Imperium states. An offer is sent once again to Russia, offering twenty years of substantial payments made up of a mixture of currency and resources, in return for the purchase of the island of Novaya Zemlya and the two islands to its south. Due to a lack of a reply previously, a substantial number of furs are sent, in the hope that this gift shall cause a reply. Following the successful capture and colonisation of the Alaskan coastal islands, the focus shifts to the Seaward Peninsula, with a large number of trading posts set up along its coast. The connection between the Peninsula and the mainland is colonised and brought under Imperium Sovereignty, and a city is founded by the name of Seaward. A large number of Scandinavians are offered free travel and a small bursary in return for emingrating to the city, so that population numbers are boosted on the Peninsula. Many accept this offer, and as of such the population of the Peninsula grows rapidly. After the fall of Lithuania to Germanica, the Imperium recon groups sent to the state two years ago, are recalled via the same path they entered the state. The Scandinavian Imperium also founds its first colony, on OTL Coronation Island, in the Southern Ocean. This colony is named Valhalla, and begins to grow economically due to the abundence of seals and whales in the surrounding waters. A grand hall, in the style of Norse craftsmanship of old, begins to be constructed in honour of its name.
    • Isn't it a bit early to be colonizing Antarctica? I mean I play the Selk'nam and even I haven't tried that due to the climactic implausibility. That and are there rules on that? I know there was a limit on colonizing Australia until 1700. Commandante Lemming (talk) 20:36, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
    • Whilst it falls under the banner of the continent of Antarctica, it is obviously not part of the mainland. It is far enough south where the temperature is, I admit, fairly inhospitable. But it is still far enough north, where it is also bearable with suitable shelter, which the Scandinavians have much experiance in building due to their cold weather climates. Also, I am going to keep the colony's population very small, mainly whalers and sealers, with a small garrison. Hailstormer (talk) 20:58, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
    • Selk'nam Diplomacy (pre-crisis): The Selk'nam are greatly surprised by the Scandinavian settlement at Valhalla. Several shiploads of kelp and humanitarian supplies are sent, as it is widely believed that they Scandinavians will die in the cold and inhospitable climate that even the Selk'nam approach with caution. Also they express skepticism as to why the Great Christian Nations of the Arctic would enter the sphere of influence of the Great Christian Nation of the Antarctic.
    • The Scandinavian Imperium thanks the Selk'nam for their aid, and accept it gladly, but also state that the small colony will survive unharmed. We also state that we merely wish for an outpost in the Southern Ocean, and send a large number of Alaskan furs to prevent any bad blood between our states.
    • Russia agrees to lease the territory for a century between 1800 and 1900, retaining control of the waters around the island and lots of control over the south.
    • The Scandinavian Imperium thanks Russia for the compromise and gladly accepts. We begin sending currency and resources proportional to this deal right away.
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Great Chief Damasus dies on April 12 and there is great mourning throughout the Haruwin. Voting for a new Great Chief deadlocks, with most of the Western and mainland Atlantian voters backing a republican Teushen noble, John-Peter Ijin'Yigich, while royalist voters from Ona Yagich and K'onipians all cast their ballots for King Madoc IV of Wales in blatant violation of the rule that the chief must be a Selk'nam citizen born in the Haruwin. Their votes are ruled void, but they respond by voting in the second round for Queen Praxedes of Wales, who fulfills the requirement. Neither side can reach the required majority due to Damasus' inner circle voting insistently for neither side (being loyal to Damasus' daughter Praxedes but against royalism). After ten rounds of voting, none of the votes move and the royalists abandon the process and take to the streets, leading large protests. Thoses remaining in the council vote to elect John-Peter Ijin'Yijich who declares himself Great Chief John-Peter, but the nobles in charge of certifying the election refuse to verify the results as he did not have a majority of the eligible votes, but merely a majority of the remaining votes after the royalist protesters left. However, John-Peter issues an edict, stating that he believes the royalist nobles forfeited their right to vote by leaving the process. He then takes possession of the Great Chief's palace, aided by republican Taoist elements in the military. However, the royalists deem his election invalid and launch an attack on the palace. The attack is repelled, but royalist forces are left in control of much of Ona Yagich, and the palace is placed under siege. The royalists insist on negotiations, demanding that a new election be held and that John-Peter eliminate himself from consideration. John-Peter also asks for negotiations but insists that he is the only legitimate Great Chief. The Apostolic Church, seen as overly loyal to Brython, is not asked about the election, and John-Peter declares himself to be a "pure Kappelist without need of the pseudo-popery of Eutychianus".
    • Republican Selk'nam Diplomacy (John-Peter): Emissaries are sent to allies Imperium Africana, Mononobe Shogunate, Scandinavian Imperium, and the Mayan Empire asking for international recognition of Great Chief John-Peter as the only legitimate Great Chief. Great Brython is sent merely a notification of election and a tersely worded warning that they should stay out of the succession crisis if they wish to continue positive relations, and noting that Praxedes "should be advised to see herself as the world sees her, as a Welshwoman alone". Secret emissaries are sent to the Netherlands hoping that the Dutch will prope up the new government as a way of undermining Brythonic influence in the region.
    • The Scandinavian Imperium states that they shall back the election of John-Peter, as they believe the ruler of the Great Haruwin should be Selk'nam born. As a sign of comradeship, we send a number of Imperium warships to Ona Yagich to intimidate the Royalists, with the hope of breaking their siege of the palace.
    • Royalist Selk'nam Diplomacy: Emissaries are sent Great Brython begging for Madoc and Praxedes to explicitly reject John-Peter and asking that Praxedes consider "returning temporarily in order to claim her throne on behalf of the Royal House of Chongat-Tuch'huelpe-Pugh." Furthermore, emissaries are sent to Imperium Africana, the Mononobe Shogunate, the Scandinavian Imperium, and the Mayan Empire asking that John-Peter's election be rejected.
    • The Scandinavian Imperium rejects the Royalists.
    • Chimu and Orientalia send aid to the Royalists very very quietly.
    • Imperium Africana supports the Royalists, and vows to defend the rightful royal government of the Great Haruwin of Selk'nam.
    • Great Brython and the Netherlands call in the age of the "Glorious Revolution", and Madoc and Praxedes claim their title as Emperor and Empress of Southern Atlantia (since we hold De Mor Tir, Chile, and Argentium). We send the following message ot John-Peter "Surrender your crown in favor of the Empress and her Emperor, or bloodshed will ravage the Selk'nam to no end." If offer is rejected, we will declare war on the Republican faction.
    • The Mayan Empire wishes to stay neutral in this conflict, considering it's occuring in a separate branch of our main religion.
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Eutychianus, noting that the war is ended in Europe, orders the church to return to its court in Great Brython, but stays long enough to preside over the funeral of Damasus. While most of the court has left before the succession crisis begins, a few are embroiled in the fighting. Most make it out safely, as the area around Ona Yagich is controlled by pro-Brython Apostolic royalists. Eutychianus takes no position on the succession crisis, saying that, "men of God have no stake in the fleeting mechanations of this world". However, he later strongly condemns John-Peter for leaving the Apostolic Faith and sends emissaries to the Maya asking that his claim of "Kappelism" be rejected by the Mayan Kappelist leadership as heretical.
    • The Mayan Empire will stay neutral, considering they are a different branch of Kappelism as well.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Kappelist influence is exerted over Apache. Steam power and water wheels are incorporated in the southern part of the Empire. Chemistry is investigated and researched. Chorotega and Boruca continue build-up as trade hubs and industrial leaders. Chichen Itza and Tenochtitlan, as well as other major cities in the Empire, urbanize. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia, especially Brandenburg. The Juun family continues setting up schools. More universities are established in middle class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. Training drills are conducted by the military. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca. Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 5150 km and Haven expands 3100 km.
  • Imperium Africana expands its military, economy and infrastructure, including those of the vassals. The colonies of Mogäs and Tumaini are expanded by 750 km each, while Bärädä is expanded by 1000 km, and Dähnnät by 1500 km.
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The King Niejmen II continues to expand the military. All colonies expand normal rates. All vassals expands economy.
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future of the nation lies with themselves. More services are offered on the new route. The prototype engines continue running on the route, yet need to stop many times to refill up their coal reserves. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills continue to make great rolls of paper and with cheap paper now being sold on the market, this allows many new writers to be able to publish their works onto the market. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The nation's propaganda continues to pump out patriotic messages, helping to keep the population going during this war. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also takes place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. The nation continues to foster growth with allies and opens up new trading routes with allies in Europe. All eyes of the nation shift to former Matarami areas. The Japanese are asked if Kazami can be bought as the Orissans would like a stop closer to home on their travels to Europe to openly trade with the nations. An interest arises in learning Ethiopian languages in Universities, mainly their largest one Amharic.
  • Mataram expands army and economy. Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 9200 km. Rajputana also begins to experience a boom in construction as people head into the cities and factories grow in number. Sindustan amps up on its army and economy. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 15,000 km inland and they build up their army. Naya Bihar sees growth on its coast as cities begin to grow and rival some in the Maharajya itself. Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure. The Matarami declare war on Jambi on Sundabang, a former state in Mataram.
  • Russia works on its military. Industrial production is amped up, and more funds are given to scientists. The death rate is rapidly decreasing as a result of better understanding of anatomy. Russia grudgingly continues its stance on Scandinavia. Socialism grows. The Russians build their first steam locomotive, and use it for mines in the Urals.
  • Minsk works on its economy. Industry builds up at an exponential rate. More textile factories emerge all around the nation, as the resource of the twin-piston steam engine is being used exquisitely well. plans for railways begin to emerge.
  • Ukraine works on its military to improve defence as it is now tasked with partrolling its borders. The First Posadnik of the Ukrainian Duma is inaugurated.
  • The Grand Principality of Suur-Suomi works on its military. Orthodoxy begins to take hold in major cities such as Helsinki and Taalinn.

New Oman expands inland as the gold rush drives expansion

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies improve, while agriculture continues developing in Castille. Meanwhile in Aragon and Portugal, industrialization continues, and Meanwhile in Castille, the canal's construction continues. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 3000 sq km along the Marave Lake and Angola expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, Maranhão expands 6000 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, the militias and the Portuguese forces start to try to attack the raiders on their own territory. This proves difficult, particularly for the Portuguese forces, being that the territory is practically all comprised of wilderness. However, in one of the attacks, the Sãovicentine militias manage to capture Adriano Heriberto, who later is executed in São Paulo.without their leader, the "war" effort of the rest of the raiders collapses and the "nation" disbands, as the raiders split themselves in smaller bands. The territory occupied by them is nominally divided between São Vicente and Minas Gerais, and starts to be settled. Meanwhile in Portugal, the "Academia das Ciências" is tasked with implementing the proposals of 1797, aside of determining the units. The academy breaks the tasks into five operations, allocating each part to a separate working group. One group is tasked with measuring the difference in latitude between Oviedo and Sevilla and triangulating between them. Other group is tasked with measuring the baselines used for the survey, other is tasked with verifying the length of the second pendulum at 39° latitude, other, related to the determination of the weight measures, is tasked with verifying the weight in vacuo of a given volume of distilled water, and the other group is tasked with Publishing conversion tables relating the new units of measure to the existing units of measure. The research then begins.

    • Royalist Selk'nam Diplomacy: The royalists are surprised and heartened to hear that they have received support from the Mononobe Shogun, who they had assumed would back the republicans. Many royalist leaders abandon their anti-Japan stances and begin referring to Japan as "the first friends of David Chongat Yagich and our great royal house."
    • Republican Selk'nam Diplomacy: The Taoist backed republicans, who felt almost certain of Japan's backing against the forces of European Christian monarchy, are shocked and betrayed. Several Japanese-born professors at the Taoist University in Miyako Yagich are killed by an angry mob.

    • Apache D: The Apache will send the four emissaries and the Council would like to know if a couple Gaoists (Shamans of Christ) Cultists could have a conference with Pope Hadrian V because they still recognize the Pope as head of the faith but it is a merger of Apachean Shamanism and Roman Catholocism. They wish to see if they will be accepted.
    • There are four nations in North Africa, Blue: Welsh royal coast, Gold/yellow: Imperium Africanum Carthaginiensis, Orange: Cyrenaica and Pink: Levantine kingdom. Sine dei gloriem (talk) 02:02, August 19, 2013 (UTC)
    • For the sake of clarity, I'll clear that up. From left to right: Wales, France, Cyprus, Levant.
  • China expands its military, infrastructure and economy as the devastated cities are rebuilt. New Manchuria expands by 8000 sq km to the north while Baitudu expands by 4000 sq km south.

  • Great Brython's King, Madoc IV, spends half of the year in Great Brython, and the economy is seen to have improved after the series of wars, largely helped along by the fact that the Dutch and Welsh - the two largest trading power of north-western Europe, now have extremely improved relations in trade. The War on the Lily continues, and Madoc actively sends scholars to the Selk'nam, where they ask for any and all informantion regarding the weed. On the bright side, hunger is greatly reduced, which helps the economy out. The growth seems to curb, but prominant scientists claim it will only be a temporary pause, and caution against the use of the weed. Prince Gavin leads a massive movement about conservationism, which leads to all indigenous species being maintained, albeit threatened, for now. The Christian Soldiers of St. David of Wales continue to expand their efforts to convert and spread Apostolic Catholocism, and continue efforts in all newly conquered states, many of which are already Anapaptist or Catholic, which the Apostolic Church both recognize. Military grows.
  • Netherlands-Liege and Cleves Merger
    The
    Netherlands' Dutch populace continues to learn Brythonic, which is now used regularly when dealing with Brythonic merchants. Brythonic troops come near to finilization of the integration of the Dutch Navy and make the two nations' vessels into one effective navy. The economy grows. Meanwhile, a new map for Cleves, Liege, Luxembourg, and Oldeberg is approved, which calls for the unification of Cleves and Liege, into Limburg, while they raise their military and economic abilities.
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of Tulpung yr Aber 6000 sq km for the Welsh government. Vassalization of Sumba, off the coast of Tulpung yr Aber, is finished. The WTC also oversees the expansion of Chile by 3000 sq km, and Argentium 5000 sq km, on behalf of the Netherland's government. Public education, much like in the motherland, is set up in all Welsh colonies, with a special focus of teaching Brythonic to all people in Dutch colonies to make communication easier. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries. Hobyo-Somalia and Kongo grow military and economy. The Dutch possesion Indonesia works with Welsh Sumatra, to grow military and economy. New South Wales and New Zeeland grow their economy and military.
  • ​Note to Saxony, I have gone ahead and fixed your algo, since it wasn't exactly right. You got 11%, not 24%.
  • Thanks (I guess). Just out of interest though, how come I need an algorithm to take over 11% of Sumba, yet you can vassalize it over the course of...one turn? Callumthered (talk) 09:55, August 19, 2013 (UTC)
  • It takes at least five turns minimum. We really do need something to stop the excessive vassalization of some players, though.
  • Saxony (constituent Kingdom of Suddeutsches Reich): The semaphore network expands, and Sir Jener's smallpox vaccination program in Hann. Munden begins to ave some positive effects, winning over the population's hearts and minds. Saxony increases its army and navy, as does loyalist Anhalt, and Cologne. The Kingdom of Tanimbarkai continues to work on nation building projests: building roads and public buildings. In the colonies: Saxon Australis expands 1000 sq km along the coast toward the Welsh colony. Work on the colony's port continues, and it is rewarded with increased trade from Tanimbarkai. Khmer Koch continues building, and manning ships. The "Eastern Squadron" is formed from these ships, with the SMS Kaiserin Charlotte as its flagship. Saxon West Africa expands 1000 sq km inland along the Kongolese coast. The Governor sends a diplomat to Brythonic Kongo to replace the former, Dutch-speaking one. The Guinea Schutzgebiet is expanded 1000 sq km west along the coast. The colonial parliament spends a lot of money building more semaphore towers.
    • China discovered the smallpox vaccine more than a decade ago.
    • Be as that may, I'm developing my own, having had no knowledge of the Chinese one (which is, I think, plausible considering Saxony does not really trade with China). 18:15, August 19, 2013 (UTC)
    • Um, Orissa found the vaccine back in the 1600s. There was a whole discussion about it, too... ~Viva
    • Well, I do wish people said these things when I started spending turns developing the vaccine (Orissa developing it over 100 years before OTL does seem a bit implausible but I accept it if everyone else has). From now on, Sir Jener will be the man who introduced the vaccine to use in Saxony (as opposed to the inventor). Is he allowed to refine it? Callumthered (talk) 23:19, August 19, 2013 (UTC)
  • The Arabian Federation builds up its economy to recover from the civil war, and Sultan Abdul-Hamid after hearing back from the returning colonization fleet goes and establishes a small Arabian trading post / refuelling stop on OTL Cocos (Keeling) Islands which are named the Cocos Island colony by the Arabian Federation. A port is constructed on the island, alongside a small town as the small group of islands are transformed into an important stopping point for Arabian ships travelling to the East Indies, Australia and the Pacific.
  • The East Africa Federation builds up its economy to recover from the civil war and to help unify the new nation. President Barghash oversees the building of the new system of Federal offices in each of the Federation’s Congressional constituencies, which is largely completed this year.

  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military as the nation finishes the work on maintaining its eastern border with the chaotic remains of the Arabian Federation and its vassals which are now seen to be fine because the civil war stopped long ago and the nations have stopped arguing over their borders, too. The Duke of Nusantara manages to keep order in the Italian colonies to the east of his Dukedom. Elsewhere, colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 4500 sq km northward.
  • The Maldives builds up its economy as the new Levantine vassal, leases out the former Arabian Federation naval base back to the Federation, now that they have gone back to business as usual.
  • Persian empire: Influences Tibet. More rifles are made.
  • Caliphate of Hejaz: Continues rebuilding after the civil war. Trade increases across all of the former Arab Fed. We continue our rapid growth of military and continue industrializing. We also continue helping out other nations in the Arabian peninsula, and begin placing heavy influence on the nation of Saudi Arabia, influencing politicians and focusing on rebuilding there.
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Tensions in the country nearly escalate to civil war as the siege of the palace continues. However, neither side launches an attack for fear of the others' foreign backers (the Royalists having overwhelming foreign support but the Republicans having the Scandinavian Navy actually in Selk'nam waters.) The Royalists succeed in establishing control of much of the country and prepare to actually invade the palace, sensing certain defeat, John-Peter's republican advisers ask him to enter negotiations with the Royalists in hopes of preserving some pieces of the Republican Agende - and he offeres to meet without pre-conditions in hopes of forging an agreement. Many royalists oppose talking to John-Peter at all, but the leaders of the movement have become fearful of triggering an international war between Scandinavia and Great Brython on Selk'nam soil. Once negotiations begin, the defeated John Peter puts forward a proposal that is generous to the royalists and which many royalists think to be superior to their own plans. The Royalists rush to rally their forces behind the plan, and the Republicans, especially the Taoists, fall in line quickly in hopes of ending the standoff on favorable terms. The conditions of the agreement are as follows:
    • 1. The Great Haruwin will become a constitutional monarchy, with the position of Great Chief being abolished in favor of a dual system with both a King and a powerful Prime Minister elected by the Council of Chiefs.
    • 2. The king will have power to conduct international relations but he must seek the approval of the Prime Minister.
    • 3. The Prime Minister will have control over all domestic and economic affairs.
    • 4. The Prime Minister will serve a five-year term and may not be re-elected to consecutive terms.
    • 5. In order to assure continued independence, the Selk'nam throne is to be given to Prince Atticus, the second son of King Madoc IV and Queen Praxedes, upon his 20th birthday, with Queen Praxedes alone serving as regent until his coronation - thereby ensuring a monarch of the house of Chongat-Tuch'huelpe-Pugh but splitting the Brythonic and Selk'nam lines of succession.
  • Emissaries are immediately dipatched to Avalon with copies of the agreement signed by both John-Peter and de-facto Royalist leader, an aristocrat named Bartholomew Hgog'OnaYagich'in'Selk'nam'i'Yagich'i'Yagich'in
  • The Scandinavian Imperium remove our fleet from Selk'nam waters now that the situation has resolved itself.
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Eutychianus settles back into his court in Avalon, but the journey back to Europe has taken its toll on the aging prelate and he is rarely seen in public. At most events he is represented by either his theological confidant Brother Lando, or his private secretary - a Welsh Davidian name Brother Patrick.
  • The Byzantine Emperor Theodore III begins the construction of a new residence in Athens to complement the existing Great Palace in Constantinople. The Byzantines begin efforts to expand the industry begun by the Italians while they were Italian protectorates. Inspired by Bavarian success, the Byzantines begin the construction of their own semaphore lines. The Byzantines also start minting their new currency, the Drachma.
  • Scandinavian Imperium: The Scandinavian Imperium sends an alliance and trade pact offer to Italia once again. Travel continues to be promoted between the Imperium states by the Imperial Cabinet, with cheaper travel offered via Imperium ships, in the continuing hope that it will lead to a mixing of the cultures of the Imperium, and create a 'Melting pot of Europe'. The rate that this is taking place increases, with the rate of internal resettlement increasing once again. The Scandinavian Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with Svalbard being the area of current focus. It is hoped that Svalbard will be completely colonised within the next year. The new plan of expansion implemented last year is continued, which focuses on the Arctic Sea west of Greenland. A larger number of small islands are brought under Imperium sovereignty in the Arctic Sea as a result. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised, which is now having substantial effects on the armed forces capabilities. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. The idea of 'Imperial Citizenship' continues to be spread, with more citizen giving equal value to their State Citizenship and Imperial Citizenship. This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between the Imperium states. Following the successful lease of the three islands from Russia, plans begin to be drawn up for their colonisation by Imperium citizens, starting in 1800. The colonisation of the Seaward Peninsula continues, with a large number of trading posts being set up along its coast to join those already there. The city of Seaward grows substantially in size due to the large number of Scandinavians immigrating there due to the free travel and bursary offered the previous year. Following the success of this plan, it is decided that it shall be continued to promote further immigration, and expanded to the islands north of the European and Asian continents. As a result of this, tens of thousands of Imperium citzens begin to spread out across the Arctic Circle island chain from mainland Scandinavia. It is decided that to match the colonisation of the Seaward Peninsula, that the Chukchi Peninsula shall be colonised, and as a result the a large number of trading posts are set up on its coast, and the Scandinavian Imperium captures and colonises both the connection between the mainland and the peninsula, and a thin strip of continuous land covering the entirity of its coast. Thus bringing it under Imperium sovereignty. The colony of Valhalla continues to grow at a stable and sustainable rate, and its economy is one of the finest in the Imperium due to the abundence of seals and whales in its surrounding waters. A whaler, named Matthias Vilhelm, spots a small island to the south of Valhalla on a whaling trip, which has an abundance of elephant seals. He reports this to those he has met at the colony, and the sealers among them decide to investigate. After seeing the abundence of seals for themselves, they decide that the island is extremely valuable, and request that the governor set up a small number of sealing huts on the island. After considering the dangers of expanding farther south, he decides that the economic benefits outweigh the threat, and agrees to a small number of sealing huts with cycling crews, with only a skeleton crew operating during the winter months. As a result the colony of Valhalla expands onto OTL Elephant Island. The Grand Hall started last year is completed, and upon viewing it, the governor decides he wishes to see it expanded immediately, so that it might truly reflect the name Valhalla. The Scandinavian Imperium founds it second colony, on OTL Washington Island and Tabuaeran Island, in the Pacific Ocean. This colony is named Yggdrasil, and begins to grow economically due to its abundance of rare tropical fruits. A Royal Palace is built, an exact replic of the one in Rekyjavik, so that the Emperor may reside at the colony if he chooses to at some point in the future. Due to this new Royal Palace being built, the one in Rekyjavik is renamed the Winter Palace, and the one in Yggdrasil is named the Summer Palace.
  • East African Federation: The economy is improved after the civil war. The bureaucracy expands in Zanzibar and the Seychelles, and Federal offices are constructed in each state of the Federation. The education system is also improved. The military expands, and several training compounds and military bases are built Comoros, Zanzibar and Mombasa. Federal diplomats are sent to surrounding east African nations (names?) to broker alliances and trade pacts. Furthermore, a request for alliance and trade pact is sent to Scandinavia, Mali and France.
  • The Scandinavian Imperium accepts the alliance and trade pact.
  • Mali accepts both requests.
  • Mali: Mali expands by 10,000 sq km to the NE. Gabu, Mossi and Wolof contribute to the economy.

The prototype engines continue running on the route, yet need to stop many times to refill up their coal reserves. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills continue to make great rolls of paper and with cheap paper now being sold on the market, this allows many new writers to be able to publish their works onto the market. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Atlantia. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies.

Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. The nation continues to foster growth with allies and opens up new trading routes with allies in Europe. All eyes of the nation shift to former Matarami areas. The Japanese are asked again if Kazami can be bought as the Orissans would like a stop closer to home on their travels to Europe to openly trade with the nations. Amharic continues to be learned in greater detail. Even though most literate folk have learned the language in school, the quality learned in Universities is much greater. This will help the students learning it talk to the majority of peoples' living all over Ethiopian territories.
  • Mataram expands army and economy. Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 9200 km.

This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between the Imperium states. The plan for the islands being leased to the Imperium next year are finalised, and it is decided that at the turn of the century a large Imperium colonisation force shall be sent, to set up a large number of separate urban areas.

The expansion of the plan to the Arctic Circle islands continues, with tens of thousands of Imperium citzens spreading out across the Arctic Circle island chain from mainland Scandinavia. The colonisation of the Chukchi Peninsula coast is completed, and as a result the focus moves to colonising the untouched interior. Imperium ships begin to move back and forth between the Seaward Peninsula and Chukchi Peninsula, creating a bond between th6e two areas, forged from the need for trade. The colony of Valhalla, discovering another island to its southwest, chooses to expand once again under the same logic as the expansion onto Elephant Island. This new island, will also be manned by cycling crews and will only sustain a small number of whaling and sealing huts, with only skeleton crews in the winter months. Reports begin to circulate throughout the colony, of a landmass of unprecedented size to their south, and the whaler Matthisa Vilhelm, discoverer of Elephant Island, begins to gather evidence of these reports, with the hope that he can persuade the Governor to launch an expedition. The colony of Yggdrasil expands to colonise the entirity of the two islands that it covers, and its economy is now one of the best in the Imperium due to the huge demand for its exotic fruits.
    • ​Two colonies every 50 years, I'm afraid.

The Weltzeituhr purchases one of the writing machines for its Munchen offices, but it is met with little enthusiasm and is seldom used. The FWC conducts exercises with the Saxon Communication Corps, whereby the Saxons send coded telegrams and the FWC attempts to decode the message. The exercises are considered a success. In Anhalt, events take another turn for the worse, with more Annist raids across the country. Cologne builds up its military. Overseas: Tanimbarkai works on building roads, its military and on improving education, putting the country's treasury under strain. Bavarian Australis expands inland, and more land is sold as pearl investors settle in the colony. The "pearl boom" causes Broomestadt to increase further yet. Saxon Australis comlpetes its port revamping, and the colonial coffers are already being replenished by the increase of shipping activity there. SA expands 1000 sq km toward the Welsh colony. Bavarian Indonesia continues to industrialise. Khmer Koch's Eastern Squadron visits the other SDR colonies in the Asia-Pacific region, doing important training exercises with local forces. Saxon West Africa expands inland, with hunters lured by tales of immense elephant herds in the depths of the jungle. The Guinea Schutzgebiet, with its extra funding from the Imperial government, continues to expand its education and telegraph systems.
    • Saxon Diplomacy: The Saxon government wishes to trade the Northern half of Khmer Koch, as well as the 11% of Sumba owned by Tanimbarkai, in exchange for Oldenburg.
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Guinea expands by 2000 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar. Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically, due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine. More rifles are built. The first train plans have made their way into Myanmar, which has attracted the attention of the court. Our navy continues development.
  • Cyprus temporarily places the EE on hold after various anti-Union riots break out in the Byzantine Empire and Cyprus itself. The Cypriot economy is expanded and Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 3000 sq km, as well as Nea Lemesos, also expanded by 3000 sq km.
    • I'd like to point out that the mods agreed to this Union in 1788, which means it has been TWELVE years in the making, because, being a small nation, people may think that it's implausible if it's rushed. I set 1800 as a target date because of the new century, a new beginning, etc. The Union itself is not implausible. All of the land controlled by the Union (except for Cyrenaica, which would remain as a vassal) is nominally Greek, speaks Greek, accepts Greek culture and the like, and Cyprus has been the only independent pinnacle of Greek culture for many years (Greece itself, remember, has been under the rule of the Italians for many years and has probably gained some cultural aspects from them) and it's plausible that Greeks would want to be united under one nation, as has been previously done in this game (see: Caliphate, Orissa, Italia) most of which started out as small states (Venice, Orissa, Arabian states) and, barring Venice, were not generally considered a prosperous or wealthy nation at the time, until they made their fortunes. And also, it isn't a person that is new to the game, it's a mod who is joining as the Byzantinians, who, I am sure, has been reading and keeping up with this page, so I find it unfair for him to jump in to ruin my plans because I am a small seafaring nation that didn't have much power in OTL (this argument can be used, see: Ethiopia's Navy) and therefore am prohibited from actually gaining power. All the land I've gained has been legitimate and slow (over two hundred and fifty years since my dynastic Union with Crete, and about the same time since my first colony). I would like for people to understand my case and thank you for listening. ~Airlines
    • Apache: We accept the Lakota trade agreement. More tribes convert to Kappelism and the Bishop of Ekta requests some European clergy to convert some of the people back. The military is built up and a few collages are built throughout the nation. Is it possible to purchase air furnaces from the Mayan or other nations or to hire another government to construct a railway?
    • Erm, no to the Apache. Also I agree with Cyprus.
    • Just making it official. The United Maharajya would like to buy the Cypiot colony oh Sabah.
    • Is anyone else seeing a mountain being made from a mole hill? Yank can play as the Bazantines, which are in Union with Cryprus and their colour and control his nation as he wants. So there.
    • I must state this much. Ethiopia had the potential to establish and maintain a large navy like any other major power. It had a manpower and money to support and expand it and that was my point. Cyprus, however, is tiny and lacks nearly any way to support a powerful military. Venice was able to establish a powerful military force, but it had the manpower and money to do so. However, it never went off and established a major colony in the New World larger than itself with a population three times its own size. Cyprus is doing all of this from a tiny island is a poor geographic location, and was nowhere near a major trade route in OTL. Cyprus, unlike Ethiopia, Venice and Byzantium, was poor for nearly all of its history. The last time it was a major center was during the Crusades, and it was cumbstomped shortly after the Crusaders left. I don't mean to be rude, but Ethiopia at least had colonies in OTL (and a world power according to one ancient historian one of the four world powers of the time alongside Rome, Persia and China). Cyprus was never powerful or important, and was considered more of a cheap chess piece that was routinely raided by the Ottomans, Arabs, Byzantines, and Crusaders throughout its history. ~Viva
  • Germanica and all of its Dominions expand their militaries. Germanica continues to push for union with Prussia, and the Lithuanians begin to integrate with the Germanicans. Prime Minister Ritz of Neu Berlin is elected out of office this year, and his successor vows to make expansion across the continent faster. Germanica begins to petition the Suddeustches Reich to gain back a part of Neu Mecklenburg. Georgia also seeks out an alliance with the new Hellenic Union. Chimu expands 15,000 sq km inland in Atlantia. Neu Berlin again petitions Italy to purchase its northernmost colony, up to the border of the central colony. Neu Prussen filters more anti-Italian propaganda into Nya Syriac, although it is not very explicit. Mysore does the same in the Maldives (against their rulers, that is.) The rail lines between Kroclaw and Berlin are completed this year, and extensions to Vilnius are underway. Neu Berlin also begins its first railway, to connect Neu Berlin to Nye Norge Stad. Mysore and Germanica begin to produce massive amounts of paper for the ever expanding newspaper industry, and books also become more popular and cheaper, thanks to the availability of paper. Iron mills are underway in Orientalia and Mysore as well, reverse engineering the technology from China and Orissa. Steam power takes a greater form in Germanica and Neu Berlin, and steam powered mills become more common outside major cities.
  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation begins to spread along the Pekitanoui River, mainly in the southern portion, increasing the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continue as more of their skins are used as clothing and teepee coverings, and more of their meat is used to feed the growing population. The palisade wall idea has been completed on smaller towns closer to the capital Wiconwico U and has now also completed on more outlying towns. Chief Looks To The Sky begins to expand his land due to an increasing population. He expands it South by another 10,000 km in order to gain more agricultural lands and living space. Trade with the Mayans, Normandy, and the Apache continue, growing the Lakota tribal economy.
  • Note: As the Selk'nam I'm going to post as if Brython accepted my royal succession proposal until I get a formal response, because any reponse will technically have happened two years ago. Will come back and edit if this is not the case but I negotiated this result with Rex before Prince Atticus was even born :-)
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Military and economy continue to expand. With the arrival of the new King still two years away, it is agreed the day to day functions of the nation will be handled on an interim basis by the late Great Chief Damasus' younger brother and Atticus' great uncle, Bede Gunun'ichin'i'K'onip, who is given the title of Interim Prime Minister and declares that he will not seek election to the permanent post of Prime Minister when his great nephew is installed as King. Prime Minister Bede was largely neutral in the succession crisis and sets about building unity among the factions. Meanwhile, goldsmiths in Ona Yagich are commissioned to fashion the Crown Jewels of the Haruwin using only local gold and gemstones. A royal scepter is also commissioned, which is to be made of jeweled whalebone carved in K'onip. Construction also begins on a "Palace of Chiefs" which will serve as the meeting place of the Council of Chiefs and the offices of the Prime Minister once the Great Chief's Palace is taken over by Crown Prince Atticus. Bede focusses strongly on deepening relations with the new Byakuren Republic in the former Miyako Colony, seeing the two nations as partners in an emerging new order of independent nations in South Atlantia. Bede also prioritizes the revitalization of relations with Imperium Africana after the crisis, seeking to import Ethiopians to train the military according to modern standards. A small Ethiopian Orthodox chuch is also allowed to be constructed on the outskirts of Ona Yagich in hopes that more merchants and technicians from Africa will settle in the Haruwin.
    • Imperium Africana would be happy to assist the Selk'nam in modernizing their military forces and building a closer relation. Additionally, we will sending missionaries as permited by the Selk'nam government.
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Eutychianus, sensing that he has little time left on this earth, works to ensure the permanence of his pro-Kappelist reforms by establishing a great library in Avalon to house Brother Lando's growing library of Mayan-language Kappelist texts, along with a school of Mayan language to ensure that Apostolic Scholars can continue to have access to these texts. Brother Patrick, Eutychianus' Irish secretary, grows in influence and in increasingly seen as his preferred successor - although some prefer the Selk'nam scholar Brother Lando.
  • Scandinavian Imperium: The Scandinavian Imperium gives up on hearing a reply from Italia. Travel continues to be promoted between the Imperium states by the Imperial Cabinet, with cheaper travel offered via Imperium ships, in the continuing hope that it will lead to a mixing of the cultures of the Imperium, and create a 'Melting pot of Europe'. The rate that this is taking place increases, with the rate of internal resettlement increasing once again. The Scandinavian Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, but since there is only one island remaining above Asia to be completely colonised, the focus shifts to the expansion in the Arctic Sea west of Greenland. Due to all the small islands of the Arctic Sea now being under Imperium sovereignty, the focus shifts to the larger islands remaining. As well as this, the colonised peninsula above Great Bear Lake, begins colonising southward at great speed, in the hope that Great Bear Lake can be encircled within the next five years. Now that the island of Svalbard has reached a population of 250,000, it can now apply for statehood within the Scandinavian Imperium, which both the population and political apparatus of the island react to positively. A decision is set to be made next year on whether or not they shall apply. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised, which is now having substantial effects on the armed forces capabilities. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. The idea of 'Imperial Citizenship' continues to be spread, with more citizen giving equal value to their State Citizenship and Imperial Citizenship. This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between the Imperium states. Now that the lease of the islands from Russia has begun, the colonisation plan is implemented. Tens o thousands of Scandinavians are shipped to the islands to set up urban centres and to spread out among the countryside of the islands, and within the year, the islands population densitites match those of the Imperium islands above them. The colonisation of the Seaward Peninsula continues, with the focus now on colonising the interior. The city of Seaward grows substantially in size once again due to the large number of Scandinavians immigrating there due to the the free travel and bursary offered. The expansion of the plan to the Arctic Circle islands continues, with tens of thousands of Imperium citzens spreading out across the Arctic Circle island chain from mainland Scandinavia. The colonisation of the Chukchi Peninsula coast continues, and like the Seaward Peninsula, the focus moves to colonising the untouched interior. Imperium ships continue to move back and forth between the Seaward Peninsula and Chukchi Peninsula, cementing the bond between the two areas, forged from the need for trade. The colony of Yggdrasil grows economically, and a large number of Scandinavian nobles immigrate there due to its warm sun and plentiful resources. The colony of Valhalla, discovers another island to its south, OTL James Ross Island, and chooses to expand once again under the same logic as the expansion of the previous years. This new island will also be manned by cycling crews and will only sustain a small number of whaling and sealing huts, with only skeleton crews in the winter months. The whaler Matthisa Vilhelm completes the compiling of the reports of the unknown landmass to Valhalla's south, and as a result presents his case to the Governor to launch an expedition to locate it. The Governor, a man who has deemed Valhalla's expansion as equal measures of miraculous and mad, agrees to Vilhelm's request to launch an expedition. The icebreaking exploration ship Imperator is chosen as the expeditions transport, and is loaded with food supplies, winter equipment, and sled dogs as a result. Matthisa Vilhelm is chosen as the expedition's leader, and as soon as he compiles his team, the expedition sets sail. The expedition soons passes OTL Elephant Island, and a short period of time after that, a huge, ice covered peninsula is sighted. Reaching the peninsula is no easy feat, as the surrounding waters are covered in huge icebergs, that have broken off from the main landmass. They locate a small bay, and navigating carefully around its icy waters, they lower the expedition and all of their supplies into smaller craft, and then row to shore. Matthisa Vilhelm is the first to depart from the boats, and upon resting his two feet upon the land, declares truimphantly: "We are the first to walk this icy plain, but we will not be the last". He then plants a Scandinavian Imperium flag upon the bay, and the expedition sets up base camp. The expedition remains on the continent for many months: exploring the nearby area, drawing up naviagtion charts for future expeditions, and locating what little local fauna they can find. At the end of this time, they return to the Imperator, and return to Valhalla, where they report to the Governor that they have located this new landmass. The Governor, astonished that the rumours are true, sends word immediately to the Emperor, who upon hearing this news, decrees that exploration of this new landmass will be a top priority.

  • Great Brython's King, Madoc IV, considers his options in the Selk'nam Haruwin for the greater part of the year. In the end, he decides that another year of further discussion with key policy makers is needed. He asks both factions of the Haruwin to stand down until a decision is reached. By the end of the year, plans are expected to be released by January 1, 1801. Meanwhile, a large celebrtation occurs on January 1, 1800, ushering in "The New Century - One of Progress and Advancement."

  • The Arabian Federation builds up its economy to recover from the civil war, and the Cocos Island colony continues to be developed. The new Dirham-Dinar system helps to ease the inflation in the Federation and this year’s completion of the Dubai-Sharjah railway also helps to build up the economy. The Sultan takes the railway’s first journey from Sharjah to Dubai, and so impressed he starts a new programme of railways to connect the cities of the Federation together to make travel easier for Sheiks and Emirs travelling between the Federal capital and their home state. The high costs of the railways keep it a luxury travel option of only the nobility and merchants, though Emir Abdul-Karim of Al Hofuf sets up his own personally funded railway system to connect Al Hofuf’s main cities, using his own funds to subsidise the fares of the new third class trains to make them affordable to the lower classes.

The Hellenic Union accepts the alliance with Georgia and also sells the former colony of Nea Pafos to the Orissans. Crete is incorporated into the Hellenic Union and becomes a state, as well as Attaleia. Cyrenaica remains a part of the union, however, is not completely incorporated due to differences in culture and in area, and is a vassal of the Union.

  • The ambitious Persian Shah Suleiman III sees the dissolution of the Arabian Federation as a way to expand Persian power. He takes the opportunity to send Nestorian missionaries to spread the faith in the remains of the nation. It especially takes hold in areas like Baghdad and Kuwait, which were formerly Persian held territory. Nestorian missionaries are also sent to the new Republic of Turkestan, which was similarly Persian territory. The Persians respect the rights of the Catholic minority in formerly Dutch-held Persia, and the Muslim minority in the former Arabian Shiekdoms. They are allowed to build Cathedrals and Mosques, but only in the area of former Dutch Persia and the Shiekdoms. The largest mosque is built in the city of Bandar Abbas, which had been the capital of Arabia`s Bandar Charak Shiekdom. It was built in the remains of the palace of Bandar Charak`s Shiek, which was partially demolished when the Shiek`s family was killed for betraying Persia for Arabia.
    • Baghdad and Kuwait are mainly Muslim after 100 years of Arabian vassalage, centuries of self-rule as Muslim nations and as part of the Caliphate. They have hardly any Nestorians in their nations. However, the bigger problem is that Warman is currently Persia's player and he has been posting as them. You are not allowed to steal another player's nation, Yank, and you're setting a bad standard of the mods with all this bad behaviour ~Von.

  • Italia begins to upgrade and update its now aging navy. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia become industrial centres as huge cloth weaving factories spring up to serve the growing demands of an expanding population. The University of Venice resumes chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions.

The close-knit Maldivian community reacts agrily to the Mysorean propaganda. Nya Syriac is also pacified by the new Levantine government.
  • The Maldives and Nya Syria both work on their navies.
    • The propaganda is quiet, meaning that it has subliminal messages and that few would understand it.
  • The Arabian Federation builds up its economy to recover from the civil war, and the Cocos Island colony continues to be developed. The expansion of the railway system in the Federation brings the problem of time differences between the far away regions of the Federation and the timing of train journeys. To stop passengers from having to change timezones so often because of the readings of sundials in different places in the Federation, the Federation resolves to standardize the Federation as a timezone, using the time in Sharjah as the standard time. Emir Abdul-Karim’s third class rail plan encourages Sheik Fadil of Musandam sets up his own personally funded railway system to connect Musandam’s main cities, using his own funds to subsidise the fares of the new third class trains to make them affordable to the lower classes. The two Sheiks meet up to try to bring this system to the entire federation.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Kappelist influence is exerted over Apache. New technologies arrive in the southern part of the Empire, mainly large paper mills and cloth factories. Some of these establishments also appear in Mutul and Azteca. The first railroad is built in the Empire, running from the capital cities of Chorotega and Boruca, to Chichen Itza and Tenochtitlan, as well as other major cities in Mangue, Copan, Aayinha, Mixtec, and Huasteca. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia, especially Brandenburg. The Juun family continues improving the national public school system. More universities are established in lower class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. Training drills are conducted by the military. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca. Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 5150 km and Haven expands 3100 km.
  • Scandinavian Imperium: Following their surpassment of the population required for an application of Statehood within the Imperium, Svalbard, namely the political apparatus of Svalbard, after being lobbyed significantly by their people, choose to apply. The Imperial Cabinet, who see Svalbard as one of the most profitable whaling and sealing locations on the planet, as well as the first stop on the Northwest Passage, decide that the appliacation shall be accepted. As a result Svalbard becomes the fifth state of the Imperium, and given the same rights to a State Cabinet and Minister in the Imperial Cabinet as the other four Imperium states. Travel continues to be promoted between the Imperium states by the Imperial Cabinet, with cheaper travel offered via Imperium ships, in the continuing hope that it will lead to a mixing of the cultures of the Imperium, and create a 'Melting pot of Europe'. The rate that this is taking place increases, with the rate of internal resettlement increasing once again. The Scandinavian Imperium continues its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, but since there is only one island remaining above Asia to be completely colonised, the focus shifts to the expansion in the Arctic Sea west of Greenland. The focus remains on the larger islands remaining. The expansion from the peninsula above Great Bear Lake reaches the coast of the water body, and begins encircling the lake great speed. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised, which is now having substantial effects on the armed forces capabilities. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments begin to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. The idea of 'Imperial Citizenship' continues to be spread, with more citizen giving equal value to their State Citizenship and Imperial Citizenship. This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between the Imperium states. The colonisation of the Seaward Peninsula continues, with only a small portion of the interior remaining, with the hopes thatit will be completely colonised within the year. The city of Seaward grows substantially in size once again due to the large number of Scandinavians immigrating there due to the the free travel and bursary offered. The expansion of the plan to the Arctic Circle islands continues, with tens of thousands of Imperium citzens spreading out across the Arctic Circle island chain from mainland Scandinavia. However, Svalbard is now removed from this plan, as they have reached the largest sustainable population that can be achieved. The colonisation of the Chukchi Peninsula now only leaves a small portion of the interior untouched, and it is hoped that it will be completely colonised within the next two years. Imperium ships continue to move back and forth between the Seaward Peninsula and Chukchi Peninsula, cementing the bond between the two areas, forged from the need for trade. The Scandinavian Imperium colonises the area above the former Norman colony on the east coast of the Antillas, and begins expanding inward at substantial speed. The colony of Yggdrasil now has the highest density of Scandinavian nobles on the planet. This leads to it being given a near mythical status, and calling it ones home is now being seen as a sign of true achievment within the upper classes. The colony of Valhalla, discovers another island to its southwest, OTL Anvers Island, and chooses to expand once again under the same logic as the expansion of the previous years. This new island will also be manned by cycling crews and will only sustain a small number of whaling and sealing huts, with only skeleton crews in the winter months. Since the surrounding area has been significantly charted, and no other islands have been located nearby, it is decided that expansion shall now be put on hold for the foreseeable future. The base camp on the peninsula is left unmanned this year, as the expedition of the previous year was significantly costly, and apart from a nearby sailing by the Imperator, it is unseen by human eyes for the year. A debate is now raging within the colony of Valhalla, on whether or not the peninusla should be brought under Imperium sovereignty, but as it is too dangerous to keep a permement settlement, the Governor argues that it is impossible. As an alternative, he states that the Imperium will claim de facto ownership of the peninsula, and since the Imperium has sovereingty over the peninsula's surrounding islands, no other nation can reach the peninsula without violating the Imperium's sovereign waters, so this is seen to be enough. Away from the arguing over the peninsula, a decision is made within the colony, to name the peninsula the Vilhelm Peninsula, in honour of its discoverer, the now-explorer, Matthisa Vilhelm.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Military and economy continue to expand as Interim Prime Minister Bede continues to smooth relations between royalists and republicans. More colonists are sent to the island of Yagich Rachel in the Yagich Atticus colony, where massive kelp farms are being set up. Yagich Rafael grows in population and some of the citizens begin demanding autonomy. Ethiopian missionaries are accepted, although permission is also asked for Apostolic Maugholdian monks to build a monastery in Addis Ababa. Selk'nam warriors quickly grade their skils and weaponry with Ethiopian help.
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Eutychianus dies after a long reign. The vote to succeed him is close, with many backing his private secretary Brother Patrick. However, many bishops are swayed by Patrick's youth at age 43, and a narrow majority votes for the Selk'nam pro-Kappelist theologian Brother Lando. The elevation of Lando is controversial as he represents a second consecutive Selk'nam leader for a church that governs the larger nation of Brython. However, Prime Bishop Lando is 63 years old and many believe that Patrick will almost certainly be the next behind him. Brother Patrick is made head of the Davidian Order and continues to be a real power in the Church.
  • United Kingdom of Antillia: We build up the military and continue to industrialize. We expand 15,000 km squared in the south. King Ludwig sends an envoy to the Dutch asking to buy their Texas colony.
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as the future of the nation lies with themselves. The railroads continue to be laid by workers, beginning from the hub of Bhuhaneswar to Lucknow and then Delhi while more railroads are laid in from Bhubaneswar to Kolkata. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills continue to make great rolls of paper and with cheap paper now being sold on the market, this allows many new writers to be able to publish their works onto the market. A large variety of novels and novellas can now be found on the market all across the Maharajya. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Atlantia. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The nation continues its large propaganda campaigns and all over the nation posters promoting unity are spread. In the vassals too, the program of huge propagandaing continues to be implemented. Hindi continues to grow in strength as the trading language in all of the Maharajyan territories. The military sees new inventions such as rifles and better cannons produced for the army. Old equipment is either sold or melted down and recycled into new rifles and cannons for the army. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also takes place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. The nation continues to foster growth with allies and opens up new trading routes with allies in Europe. Proper Amharic continues to gain prominence in many people's lives. In the SOC, there is a heightened interest in learning to speak Amharic properly as Ethiopian territories expand to more places in the world. Attitudes toward Ethiopians are also generally much better than those to whites - except for Italians. This begins to improve as people begin to regard the Ethiopians to be "like us". The Raja continues to compemplate plans for acquiring a new colony somewhere in Africa. He begins looking at his options in the Southern tip of the continent. Steam boats begin to be built to transport good across rivers and from Maharajya to Dakshin Maharajya (collective name for Mataram and Brunei). This is a revolution in ship design and begins to replace many ships using wind power. However, in the majority of areas, wind remains faster.
  • Dakshin Maharajya (PMII)
    Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 9200 km. Rajputana sees a large industrial boom of its own. The dual railway line of Amritsar to Lahore continues construction at a good speed and is planned to bring in much better trading speeds. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 15,000 km inland and they build up their army. Naya Bihar sees growth on its coast as cities begin to grow and rival some in the Maharajya itself. Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure. The Matarami and Brunei both complete the war against Lampung swiftly. The nation declares it will now hope to re-integrate the recaptured territories. Huge amounts of propaganda is put into play in the newly assimilated territories and many stories from the time of the just Orissans seeps through to the people as things told from mouth become confirmed in propaganda.
  • Imperium Africana expands its military, economy and infrastructure, including those of the dominions and vassals. The railway network of the empire continues to expand throughout the nation, and continues to lead the world in sheer size.

  • The Arabian Federation 1802

    The Arabian Federation in 1802

    The Arabian Federation builds up its economy to recover from the civil war, and the Cocos Island colony continues to be developed. The expansion of the railway system in the Federation and the standardized timezone of the Federation, helps to further industrialize the nation as merchants can now easily move their goods inland. Emir Abdul-Karim’s third class rail plan is brought up in the Sheik council and alongside Sheik Fadil of Musandam, they manage to convince the rest of the council to put more money into the railway system to make it more affordable for the lower classes. The Railways now have three classes: First for the nobility, Second for the merchants and Third for the peasants. However on many trains, all three classes aren't present at the same time, and peasants just catch a ride on the trains chartered by the nobility and merchants, and very few standard regular train services exist. Thus, adding third class carriages onto freight trains becomes the most popular practice to allow third class train travel.
  • Saxony (SdR): The military is built up, and the semaphore network is steadily improved. More of Sir Jener's clinics are opened in towns across the Kingdom, and the death rate declines proportionately. Work begins on a very small railway in Dresden. The short line will serve as an indicator of the effectiveness of the locomotives invented in other lands, and whether they should come into widespread use in the Kingdom. After more violence from the Annists in Anhalt, Empress Charlotte sends a small force (with an ISCC detachment) to aid the failing forces of the Anhanltese Prince. Cologne works on increasing its industry. Overseas: Thanks to the Imperial bailout, Tanimbarkai continues modernising (education, government structure and infrastructure). The 11% of Sumba is renamed the "Sumba District" and a Saxon Superintendent is posted there along with a Saxon force. Saxon Australis continues to have an economic boom thanks to the increase in shipping caused by the improvements made to the harbour. The funds are put toward roads and the Royal Australis Regiment. Khmer Koch's shipbuilding industry grows profitable, with the shipyards selling hulls to overseas buyers. Saxon West Africa expands 1000 sq km inland, and the Guinea Schutzgebiet xpands its semaphore network. France is once again offered a thirty year [renewable] mutual defense pact and trade agreement. The Netherlands is offered Northern Khmer Koch and the Sumba Settlement in return for Oldenburg (or at least a large portion of it).
  • The Hellenic Union celebrates the official Union between all Hellenic states, and integrates Crete and Cyprus into the Union entirely. The four states within the Union are Hellas, Byzantinia, Attaleia and Cyprus, while Cyrenaica remains a vassal. The fledgling military, mostly composed of former Cypriot and Cretan forces, is redistributed throughout ports and cities, as well as expanded to accommodate for new recruits. Agriculture, especially on the mainland Greek peninsula and also Anatolia, is developed with fertiliser arriving from Europe. University projects are comissioned in Athens and Constantinople. Education in major cities is also improved, especially among the upper classes. King Yiannis II moves from Lefkosia to the palace in Constantinople to consolidate his rule. Nea Konstantinoupoli is expanded 3000 sq km, and Nea Lefkosia is expanded 3000 sq km.
  • Cyrenaica attempts to push farming in some areas of the state near the coast, despite there being no water available in the form of creeks. Natural wells found propagate extremely small farming areas in oases. Cyrenaica expands 10,000 sq km into the desert.
  • Apache: The economy is improved upon and roads are upgraded throughout the nation. The Council of Elders sends scholars to Europe and to the Imperium Africana to learn more about the industry there and bring back their research when they have the basics and send annual reports on the impacts of industrilization back. I start to industrilize in 1840 right if so that is when the scholars and engineers return. Who owns the colony bordering my southeastern border with orange color?
    • Cyprus
    • Do we really have to tell you again? You already asked this.
    • Sorry did not see it.
    • No problem, honest mistake. Don't worry about it.
  • Italia begins to upgrade and update its now ageing navy. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia become industrial centres as huge cloth weaving factories spring up to serve the growing demands of an expanding population. The University of Venice resumes chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia and another 8500 sq km in Nuovo Guinea where missionaries desparately attempt to save the souls of the cannibals. Nuovo Venexia and Treviso expand by 8500 sq km. Genoa and Milan, Rome and Naples and Porto Roma, Treviso and Verona, Messina and Palmero, Florence and Pisa are all connected by rail this year. This encourages many factories to attempt to produce machniery and other materials other than cloth.
  • Romania and Padang work on their economies. Siam and Malacca work on their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies.
  • The Levantine Kingdom works on developing its industrial capacity. They expand the New Syria colony by 4500 sq km. The Nile sees the rise of factories similar to those in Florence. The Levantine government also seeks a faster method of communication between Egypt and Palestine as well as from the Red Sea into the Mediterrainean Sea. The idea of a Nile-Red Sea or Red-Mediterranean Sea canal is brought up.
  • The Maldives and Nya Syria both work on their navies. Many Nya Syriacs are encouraged to return to the Levant where life is a lot easier than in the Caribbean Sea.
  • United Kingdom of Antillia: We build up the military and continue to industrialize. We expand 15,000 km squared in the south. King Ludwig sends an envoy to the Dutch asking to buy their Texas colony.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Military and economy continue to expand as Interim Prime Minister Bede continues to preside over a tenuous peace. With Prince Atticus' 20th birthday set to occur next year, both sides of the succession crisis are anxious for his decision on whether to leave Brython to accept the Selk'nam throne. Major leaders from both camps begin quietly campaigning for the position of permanent Prime Minister in the new system, but at the same time both sides quietly make plans for action should Atticus refuse the throne or should his father Madoc attempt to claim the throne instead. The Republicans prepare to push for a full republic if for any reason Atticus does not claim the throne, but the Royalists are split, with some preparing to seek an alternate Selk'nam claimant and others preparing ot return to fighting if the agreement breaks down. Ultimately both sides invest heavily in trying to convince Atticus to accept the arrangement in order to avoid chaos and unify the Haruwin. Two new religious minorities emerge in Ona Yagcih, a number of locals converting to Ethiopian Orthodoxy and another group of hard-core republicans adopting Mayan-style Kappelism in protest of the Apostolic Church's ties in Brython.
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Lando declares that the church must be dominated more by the spiritual than by temporal political concerns, focussing heavily on theology and doctrinal questions. Many Maugholdians grow impatient with his lack of focuss on Missions, with Brother Polycarp in particular demanding a focus on expanding the church. As a concession, Lando approves a plan by Polycarp to set up monasteries in the Byakuren Republic in hopes of evangelizing the newly-independent Japanese colonists. However, Lando stipulates that Byakuren must give permission for Maugholdian monks to live in their territory.
    • President Mononobe Nobutsuna of the Republic of Byakuren kindly declines the offer.
  • Scandinavian Imperium: After a significant number of years, the goal of a 'Melting pot of Europe' is seen to have been achieved, with a substantial mixing of nationalities between all of the Imperium states having taken place. The Scandinavian Imperium completes its colonisation of the Arctic Circle islands, with the final island remaining now being completely colonised. The focus is now entirely on the expansion in the Arctic Sea west of Greenland. The plan is altered, to completely colonise the coasts of the remaining islands, then focus on the interiors once this is completed. The expansion around Great Bear Lake reaches the southern coast, and it is expected by next year to have the lake encircled completely. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised, which is now having substantial effects on the armed forces capabilities. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments continue to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. The idea of 'Imperial Citizenship' continues to be spread, with more citizens giving equal value to their State Citizenship and Imperial Citizenship. This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between the Imperium states. The colonisation of the Seaward Peninsula is completed. The city of Seaward grows substantially in size once again due to the large number of Scandinavians immigrating there due to the the free travel and bursary offered. The expansion of the plan to the Arctic Circle islands continues, with tens of thousands of Imperium citizens spreading out across the Arctic Circle island chain from mainland Scandinavia. The colonisation of the Chukchi Peninsula now only leaves a small portion of the interior untouched, and it is hoped that it will be completely colonised within the next year. Imperium ships continue to move back and forth between the Seaward Peninsula and Chukchi Peninsula, cementing the bond between the two areas, forged from the need for trade. The Scandinavian Imperium continues to colonise the area above the former Norman colony on the east coast of the Antillas, and begins to turn toward the south in its expansion. The islands east of Svalbard begin to trade internally at an increasing rate, which leads to common sentiments among them about their futures. Something which is promoted by the recent uplifting of Svalbard to State status. The colonies of Yggdrasil and Valhalla grow in population size, and their economies grow once again.
    • You realize that you are colonizing these barren, godforsaken lands? Raising a stable population in Yggdrasil, Valhalla or Svalbard is near impossible.
    • Yggdrasil is on the equator, has plentiful food stocks, as well as living space, so no problem exists there. I plan to keep Valhalla's population to an absolute minimum. I am just expanding it to reach my goal of five hundred. In terms of Svalbard, it is more than capable of holding a stable population, as I have built up the population slowly, and have now ceased internal immigration there. So, it is just a matter of sustaining the population now. Also, I made sure it was developed to a similar level of Iceland before expanding the population, so there is no risk of a sudden infrastructure collapse.
    • Sorry, didn't know about Yggdrasil. Anyway, that's nearly impossible in Svalbard unless you plan to constantly ship food and other supplies back and forth. Today, technology has made it possible. 1800? No way, no how. Why are these people leaving their homelands for icy wastelands?
    • I will answer all of these questions with the same answer. Whaling and sealing. Svalbard is the most profitable whaling and sealing location on the planet, with the other Arctic Circle islands not being far behind, providing an immense economic lure, which combined with the free travel and bursaries offered by the Imperium, makes moving to these islands an easy choice for many. Whaling and sealing also provides all the meat stocks needed for these populations, which when combined with the Penguin Lillies being cultivated on these islands, means that the populations will have a sustainable diet. That isn't even including all the local fauna of these islands. Finally, whaling provides the needed fuel to heat and light these populations, due to the huge quantities of whale oil being processed. Which can obviosuly be reinforced by timber on the islands. What little supplies can't be created independently on these islands can be easily shipped from the other Imperium states, as the Northwest Passage is now one of the most heavily shipped trade networks on the planet.
    • The Northwest Passage. Yes. Because that exists.
  • Germanica and all of its Dominions expand their militaries. Kroclaw-Berlin Railway expands to Warsaw. Trans-Neu Berlin Railway is partially completed, with plans to extend to all the provincial capitals.
  • Russia works on its military. Industrial production is amped up, and more funds are given to scientists. The death rate is rapidly decreasing as a result of better understanding of anatomy. Russia grudgingly continues its stance on Scandinavia. Socialism grows. Novgorod-Moscow railway is 80% complete. NETA, facing much outside pressure, caves and reforms to EATA, the EurAsian Trade Alliance, and by doing so, accepts executives from all over the Russian realms.
  • Minsk works on its economy. Industry builds up at an exponential rate. More textile factories emerge all around the nation, as the resource of the twin-piston steam engine is being used exquisitely well. Railway construction continues from Kiev to Minsk to Novgorod.
  • Ukraine works on its military to improve defence as it is now tasked with partrolling its borders. The First Railway construction continues from Kiev to Minsk to Novgorod
  • The Grand Principality of Suur-Suomi works on its military. Orthodoxy becomes a major religion in major cities such as Helsinki and Taalinn.
  • The Federated Duchy of the Caucasus works on its economic ties, and tries to stay open to trade competition.
  • Riga works on its economy and finishes construction of a merchant fleet of its own.
  • The United Maharajya amps up its army. Uttarshina expands 9200 km and projects continue.

However, after five years without a result, as the meridional distance is still being recalculated, Afonso XII resolves to implant the new measures in 1803. A preliminary measure, the "metro", defined as one ten-millionth of the distance between the North Pole and the Equator, and equivalent to roughly 436,5 Portuguese linhas, is defined, as well as the "are", equivalent to 100 m2, to be used as a measure for area, the "estere", equivalent to 1 m2, to be used as a measure for volume of firewood, the "litro", equivalent to one cubic "decímetro" (equivalent to one-tenth of a metro), used for measure of volumes of liquid, and the "grama", defined as the mass of one cubic "centímetro" (1/100th of a metro) of water, used as a measure for mass. Decimal multiples and submultiples of these units were defined by Greek prefixes: "myria", "kilo", "hecta" (100), "deka", "deci", "centi" and "milli". Those measures are implanted both in Portugal and in Castille.
    • Collie, did you just create the metric system?

    • From my years of ruling Baghdad I have made a small nation page for it which you might find interesting to read to learn about its history. For one, the royal family is firmly Muslim and this move goes against the rest of Baghdadi history, and I advise you don't do it or else you risk pissing off like 80% of the nation who are Muslim including all of the nation's other leaders ~Von.
    • This is bullsh*t. It seems I can't win no matter what I try. I can't do a single bloody thing without someone getting pissed about it. And I'm trying to express my resentment toward Islam without seeming like an anti-Muslim bigot. That flushes 75-80% of what I was planning down the toilet. My resentment likely stems from the fact that social progress in Islamic countries mainly went backward (especially toward women) whilst it went (mostly) forward in Christian countries.
  • Apache: The economy is improved and the Council of Elders wish to purchase the Cyprus colony to their southeast or at least some of it. Cyprus, please respond.
  • China expands its military, economy and infrastructure. Work on the Bing Railway continues.

  • Upon hearing about the new system of measurement that is planned to be implemented in Portugal and Castille, the Hellenic Union asks Portugal for details and pends to introduce the system into schools and universities across the Union in 1805. The Hellenic Union also denies the wish for the Apache to buy some of the land of the Nea Athina colony. A railway begins to be built from Athens to Constantinople, stopping in Larissa, Thessaloniki, Kavala and Alexandroupolis to develop trade between the two major cities of the Union. Ships begin to sail all over the Aegean and Mediterranean in trade, especially with Benghazi, Italia, the Levantine Kingdom, and Georgia in the Black Sea. Ships also begin sailing northward to Scandinavia and Brandeburg for trade, as well as Antilia, Atlantia and Africa. The Hellenic army and navy is expanded. Nea Konstantinoupoli is expanded by 3000 sq km and Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 3000 sq km.
    • Portugal accepts the offer.
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Guinea expands by 2000 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar. Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically, due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine. More rifles are built. We finish our railroad from Yangoon to Taunggyi. We ask United Maharajya for an alliance so that we can make a railroad from Delhi to Yangoon.
  • Suddeutsches Reich: The government, upon hearing of the new Portuguese system of measurements, starts a commission to determine the effectiveness of such a scheme. The telegraph network is improved. Saxony improves its military while Bavaria and Vavarian Indonesia improve their industry. The intra-Dresden railway worked so well last year that the Bavarian Steel Company is given a contract to build a Dresden-Munchen line over the course of a few years. Saxon Australis, Bavarian Australis and Saxon West Africa expand their usual amounts. The offers are still open to France and the Netherlands.
  • Italia continues to upgrade and update its now aging navy. Urbanization continues across Italia at a rapid pace especially in the Western port cities. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia become industrial centres as huge cloth weaving factories spring up to serve the growing demands of an expanding population. The University of Venice resumes chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia and another 8500 sq km in Nuovo Guinea where missionaries desparately attempt to save the souls of the cannibals. Nuovo Venexia and Treviso expand by 8500 sq km. More cities within Italia are connected by rail this year. This encourages many factories to attempt to produce machniery and other materials other than cloth.
  • Romania and Padang work on their economies. Siam and Malacca work on their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies.
  • The Levantine Kingdom works on developing its industrial capacity. They expand the New Syria colony by 4500 sq km. The Nile sees the rise of factories similar to those in Florence. The Levantine government begins work on the Suez Canal.
    • The Suez Canal did not begin construction in OTL until 1859.
    • I know. But that was due to the fact that there were huge internal European conflicts... and a report that said that the Red Sea was ten metres higher than the Med. They believed it until the 1950s.
  • The Maldives and Nya Syria both work on their navies. Many Nya Syriacs are encouraged to return to the Levant where life is a lot easier than in the Caribbean Sea.
  • The Arabian Federation builds up its economy to recover from the civil war, and the Cocos Island colony continues to be developed. Emir Abdul-Karim’s third class rail plan looks set to win him the election next year, and he begins planning another colony to be founded. These two policies look set to assure him of his victory next year.
  • MOD ANNOUNCEMENT: Many players are starting railways, note that Stage 3 means few railroads, no more than two or three in a nation. Stage 4 means you can start to connect all your major cities. Italia should be the only country capable of that at this present time.
  • I've also noticed a few players stepping out of their industrial ranges.
  • EAF: The military and economy expand. The bureaucracy in the north expands, as well as the education. Diplomats are sent to France to broker for an alliance.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Kappelist influence is exerted over Apache. New technologies arrive in the southern part of the Empire, mainly large paper mills and cloth factories. Some of these establishments also appear in Mutul and Azteca. The second railroad is built in the Empire, running up the west coast, from Mangue, through Aayinha, Kabah, Zapotec, Xalisco, Cahhita, Mogollon, and ending in Lesser Kaliforno. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia, especially Brandenburg. The Juun family continues improving the national public school system. More universities are established in lower class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. Training drills are conducted by the military. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca. Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 5150 km and Haven expands 3100 km.
  • Railroads are not common at your stage. Only a few (three to four) port cities will have them... The first public railroad opened in the 1820s for god sake...
    • They certainly are not common. There are only two in the whole country. To quote the mod announcement 'Stage 3 means few railroads, no more than two or three in a nation.'
  • Scandinavian Imperium: The Imperium continues its expansion in the Arctic Sea west of Greenland, colonising the coastlines of more islands. The expansion around Great Bear Lake now encircles the lake, and a stretch of colonisation begins toward the north coast of Great Slave Lake. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised, which is now having substantial effects on the armed forces capabilities. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments continue to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. The idea of 'Imperial Citizenship' continues to be spread, with more citizens giving equal value to their State Citizenship and Imperial Citizenship. This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between the Imperium states. The city of Seaward grows substantially in size once again due to the large number of Scandinavians immigrating there due to the the free travel and bursary offered. The expansion of the plan to the Arctic Circle islands continues, with tens of thousands of Imperium citizens spreading out across the Arctic Circle island chain from mainland Scandinavia. The colonisation of the Chukchi Peninsula is now completed. Imperium ships continue to move back and forth between the Seaward Peninsula and Chukchi Peninsula, cementing the bond between the two areas, forged from the need for trade. The Scandinavian Imperium continues to colonise the area above the former Norman colony on the east coast of the Antillas, and moves further south in its expansion. However, now that the colonisation of the peninsulas has been completed, the rate that this is taking place increases dramatically. The islands east of Svalbard continue to trade internally, and the stirrings of the previous years begin to take a tangible shape, with two distinct divisions forming. The first division is made up of the three islands leased from Russia and the island chain above them originally colonised by the Imperium. The second division is made up of all the islands east of this up until and not including Wrangel Island. The colony of Yggdrasil reaches its maximum population, almost entirely composed of Scandinavian nobles and members of the upper classes. It now has the highest density of wealth within the Imperium, and its mythical status as the highest sign of wealth is now cemented in the minds of the Imperium's citizens. The colony of Valhalla reaches its population goal of five hundred, and as a result internal immigration to the colony is ceased. A number of brief trips are made to the base camp on the Vilhelm Peninsula, with the goal of refining the navigation charts made on the first expedition. This is a relatively simple goal, and as a result no full expeditions are launched. The military is put on high alert, in preparation for potential operations in the near future.
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as the future of the nation lies with themselves. The railroads continue to be laid by workers. However, progress is dreadfully slow due to the reason that unforseen problems in terrain were overlooked. The construction is taking a long time. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Death rates begin to decline at a rapid rate. Paper mills continue to make great rolls of paper and with cheap paper now being sold on the market. Poets continue to grow in popularity. A poet named Rajput Banarjee (poet with initials of RB, we all know who that is) begins to gain a large following with his poems. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Atlantia. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The nation continues its large propaganda campaigns and all over the nation posters promoting unity are spread. In the vassals too, the program of huge propagandaing continues to be implemented. Hindi continues to grow in strength as the trading language in all of the Maharajyan territories. The military sees new inventions such as rifles and better cannons produced for the army. Old equipment is either sold or melted down and recycled into new rifles and cannons for the army. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also takes place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. The nation continues to foster growth with allies and opens up new trading routes with allies in Europe. Proper Amharic continues to gain prominence in many people's lives. In the SOC, interest begins to become even bigger in the language and people begin to go to special classes to learn the language. The attitude change continues to take place and the nation sees a large pro-Ethiopia feeling form. The Raja continues to compemplate plans for acquiring a new colony somewhere in Africa. He sets ships to sail to the area and make contact with whoever is there. Steam boats begin to be built to transport good across rivers and from Maharajya to Dakshin Maharajya (collective name for Mataram and Brunei). Many industrialists begin to gain interest in the steam boat desgins. The man who is widely acknowledged for creating the first steam ship prototype, Sanjay Saxena, begins to become very rich.
  • Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 9200 km. Rajputana sees a large industrial boom of its own. The dual railway line of Amritsar to Lahore continues construction at a good speed and is planned to bring in much better trading speeds. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 15,000 km inland and they build up their army. Naya Bihar sees growth on its coast as cities begin to grow and rival some in the Maharajya itself. Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure. The Matarami and Brunei both complete the war against Lampung swiftly. The nation declares it will now hope to re-integrate the recaptured territories. Huge amounts of propaganda is put into play in the newly assimilated territories and many stories from the time of the just Orissans seeps through to the people as things told from mouth become confirmed in propaganda.
  • United Kingdom of Antillia: We build up the military and continue to industrialize. We expand 15,000 km squared in the south.

The Byzantine Empire is contacted, and offered an alliance in order to establish more allied friendly nations in the east, the industrialization continues, and the first railway begins to be developed. It's a five-way railway connecting the main capitals of the French League, between Bourdeaux, Paris, Lorraine, Toulouse, and Avignon. The plan is a basic faster connection between the main Capital and residence of the French king to its main friendly leaders of the French peoples, the train would be to allow access of trade faster from Aquitaine to central France, and to move troops to the Atlantic coast or eastern France faster, Vassalization of Switzerland begins, some clothing factories begin to appear mainly near Paris, Bourdeaux and Toulouse, most of them are new ones, trying to use new means to increase the amount of cloth per worker

  • Baghdad continues to expand their influence in Kuwait. The Nestorians continue to work on converting the population, despite the pressure of bigoted Islamic officials. The Sultan, who is sympathetic to their plight, makes statements saying that the Constitution established by Baghdad after the collapse of the Arabian Federation had established a secular state similar to the former Arabian government. The Sultan removes the bigoted offficials from power. The Sultan officially renames the nation the Sultanate of Iraq, which was a long-used Arabic term for the region meaning "Deep-rooted land". He explains this action by stating that the nation "represents more that just the city of Baghdad".
    • Does this meet your approval Von? Baghdad is a tolerant, but still fundamentally Islamic, country.
    • I doubt it. ATL PMII Islam is different from OTL Islam.
    • Well, it is but it was already a fairly secular state, Islam isn't very bigoted in PM2 after it was seen to be fraudulent after the Mahdi. Ergo, they don't take it as seriously as they do in OTL. That said, bigoted officials will exist in places and this would please the general populace. Also, the name change is a good move, too. This post is consistent with old game canon ~Von.

    . The cereomony takes place with great pomp and circumstance at Ona Yagich Cathedral. King Atticus is crowned with a gold crown designed to look like a feathered chief's head dress, and invested with a scepter made of whale bone and wood from the ships of the great explorer Zhangzi Hg'ich. He is also entrusted with relics of St. Maughold and St. David Chongat Yagich, and blessed by Taoist priests from Miyako Yagich. Atticus tells his people that "I pledge to be a good and faithful King of this Haruwin, loyal to none but the Selk'nam and devoted to their well being and independence. Atlantian blood runs strong in my veins and I stand here today as an Atlantian king of an Atlantian nation!". An election for the new permanent post of Prime Minister is held, being won by a compromise candidate. 35 year-old Pantaleon Chṍn, a Tehuelche from the Northern city of Jenjinkon Lehe, is elected after seven ballots. Having risen to prominence after the succession crisis as a key administrator in the transition, he is seen as a competent and neutral choice. His youth is not seen as a disqualifying factor as the new office is term-limited. King Atticus and Prime Minister Pantaleon become fast friends as both of them represent a younger generation of leadership with different ideas than their warring elders. It is decided that past Great Chiefs will be counted in the order of Kings, and that Interim Prime Minister Bede will be counted as the first Prime Minister. There is great rejoicing in the Haruwin at the crowning of a new king. Many welcome the connection to the Pugh dynasty in Wales, noting the the Selk'nam can now claim themselves as a fully integrated Christian nation in the eyes of the Europeans - hoping that the King's Welsh blood will allow him to relate to Europeans as an equal.

  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Lando continues to focus on theology and building the intellectual character of the Apostolic Priesthood. Brother Polycarp, the aging Maugholdian leader, grows impatient witth the lack of action and the his inability to missionize Byakuren. Lando suggests that he instead focus his efforts on the Republic of Tojiko, a former Japanese colony where many Christians were exiled. Polycarp responds by sending a shipload of Maugholdian priests to Tojiko with the intent of founding a monastery in the capital city. Prime Bishop Lando insists that they carry a personal message declaring that they come in peace and seek good relations with the local Christians. Also, Lando insists that Polycarp focus his efforts on unifying the Christian exiles in the country rather than aggressively missionizing non-believers, believing it better to establish pleasant relations before attempting mass conversion.
    • Prime Minister Soga no Motokuni of the Federal Republic of Tojiko agrees to his offers and welcomes them.
  • Italia continues to upgrade and update its now aging navy. Urbanization continues across Italia at a rapid pace especially in the Western port cities. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia become industrial centres as huge cloth weaving factories spring up to serve the growing demands of an expanding population. The University of Venice resumes chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia and another 8500 sq km in Nuovo Guinea where missionaries desparately attempt to save the souls of the cannibals. Nuovo Venexia and Treviso expand by 8500 sq km. More cities within Italia are connected by rail this year. This encourages many factories to attempt to produce machniery and other materials other than cloth.
  • Romania and Padang work on their economies. Siam and Malacca work on their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies.
  • The Levantine Kingdom works on developing its industrial capacity. They expand the New Syria colony by 4500 sq km. The Nile sees the rise of factories similar to those in Florence.

  • Germanica and its Dominions expand their militaries. Neu Berlin approaches Portugal with the offer of buying part of Antilia (up to the OTL New York border). Mysore and Orientalia finish restructure from the last war. The Reichstag approves a motion to standardize its own measurements system, akin to Portugal, but the system developed in Poland (American system OTL) becomes the national standard and the metric system is deemed outdated and worthless. The Dominions follow suit. Georgia quietly expands into collapsed Turkestan, and offers anyone who wants it security. As a result, Georgia expands 15,000 sq km into the former area of Turkestan.
  • Scandinavian Imperium: The Imperium continues its expansion in the Arctic Sea west of Greenland, colonising the coastlines of more islands. The expansion southward from Great Bear Lake reaches the north coast of Great Slave Lake and begins to cover the northern coast. A city is founded on the site of OTL Yellowknife, named Gulkniv. The Imperium Army and Imperium Navy are further expanded and continue to be modernised, which is now having substantial effects on the armed forces capabilities. Imperium nationalism and pro-expansion sentiments continue to be spread throughout the entire Scandinavian Imperium. The idea of 'Imperial Citizenship' continues to be spread, with more citizens giving equal value to their State Citizenship and Imperial Citizenship. This is seen as a way of bringing the Imperium's various nationalities closer together. Industry continues to grow within the Imperium, with it spreading to the countryside and among the member states. Various inventions continue to spread between the Imperium states. The city of Seaward grows substantially in size once again due to the large number of Scandinavians immigrating there due to the the free travel and bursary offered. The expansion of the plan to the Arctic Circle islands continues, with tens of thousands of Imperium citizens spreading out across the Arctic Circle island chain from mainland Scandinavia. Imperium ships continue to move back and forth between the Seaward Peninsula and Chukchi Peninsula, cementing the bond between the two areas, forged from the need for trade. The Scandinavian Imperium continues to colonise the area above the former Norman colony on the east coast of the Antillas, and moves farther south in its expansion. The islands east of Svalbard continue to trade internally, and the stirrings of the previous years continue to take a tangible shape, with the two distinct divisions formed now taking on their own identities. The first begins to be known as Nordmark, and the second as Flereland. The colony of Yggdrasil sees its first visit from the Emperor in its history, with his first trip to the summer palace taking place. He holds many meetings with the various Scandinavian nobles on the islands, and increases his knowledge of the various lands under his rule. The colony of Valhalla continues to make brief trips to the base camp on the Vilhelm Peninsula, with the goal of further refining the navigation charts made on the first expedition. The military stays at high alert, and the Imperium Navy begins running exercises in the North Sea involving amphibious landings of troops, which prove highly successful.
  • Russia works on its military. Industrial production is amped up, and more funds are given to scientists. The death rate is rapidly decreasing as a result of better understanding of anatomy. Russia grudgingly continues its stance on Scandinavia. Socialism grows. The train line from Novgorod to Minsk is almost complete with only 400 km left. Scientists start using SI units for certain calculations because of simplicity in the Academy of sciences. After the 1800 elections, the Socialists managed to gain 50 seats in the Duma. Certain Socialist Leaders advocate for Russia to use SI units instead of native ones.
  • Minsk works on its economy. Industry builds up at an exponential rate.

The hastily constructed Mayan railroads prove to be inefficient and a cost blowout. The nation and its vassals are placed in debt and must seek some means of rebuilding their economies after the "white jaguar" project (OTL white elephant ) derails the economy. They receive a -10 to their economic scores.

I have constructed two railroads to date. If this is an issue, then the mod anouncement needs to be reworded, because I followed the rules 'Stage 3 means few railroads, no more than two or three in a nation.' If more than a few players are having this problem, then it was a fault of the mods, for not explaining thoroughly or precisely. You said two railroads, I built two railroads. I'm not opposed to retconing my posts, but don't penalize me when I stayed inside of the boundaries. CourageousLife (talk) 19:15, August 26, 2013 (UTC)
I have to agree. Why is France not being punished?             Regen Flag   "Fear the power of the Dark Side of the Force."  19:30, August 26, 2013 (UTC)
For the record, if read well in the first post mentioning railroads, they are mainly a defense mean for the French confederation and perhaps to move the royal families in case of another Napoleonic-like war, never to tried, and France entered Stage 3 since 1795, look at the table before claiming anything and for now they are still plans for them, not yet been finished.

I think he's only mentioning it because Scan mentioned it below.
Yes. And five railways is still two too many. ~ S
I'm actually just making one that connects the main capitals, meaning Paris, Bourdeaux and Avignon and perhaps a small one for Lorraine. Sine dei gloriem (talk) 22:12, August 26, 2013 (UTC)
That is a massive railway.
But it is just one railway. That technically fits the criteria. The mods either need to allow this, or clarify the critera and allow users to edit their posts.

Seriously guys... Last warning... Anyone that steps out of the industrialisation tables is going to get slapped hard.

Just checking, is the Suddeutsches Reich's Dresden-Munich (estimated completion time 1808 or thereabouts) acceptable or not? (Also, nice pun: "derails the economy") Callumthered (talk) 08:29, August 26, 2013 (UTC)
Any nation in Stage 3 is allowed railways on a limited scale. Yours is acceptable. Nationalised railway networks like the ones France and the Mayans are promoting will only appear around the 50s for them and other oranges and the 40s for Italia. Be a little patient, guys... Scandinator (talk)

  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Lando issues a landmark encyclical, "The True Love of Christ and False Law of Men" which attacks two key elements remaining from Roman Catholicism: clerical celibacy and the use of Latin in the mass. Lando declares that neither of these concepts appear firmly in scripture and that Kappelist thinkers have rightly discarded them for centuries. He commissions masses to be written in the Brythonic and Selk'nam languages as a start and hopes for the inclusion of more. He declares that a panel will review the neccessity of celibacy for the normal priesthood while respecting the "higher consecration" of the monastic Maugholdian and Davidian orders and deeming that "celibacy by choice is a high act of service". Brother Polycarp wastes no time setting up a large mission in Tojiko and orders that a second shipload of missionaries be sent. The Maugholdians already in Tojiko concentrate their efforts on convincing the local exiles of the need for Christian unity in the face of persecution, pointing out that the Apostolic Church unites the traditional liturgy of Catholicism with the a more Kappelist interpretation of scripture. In such trying times, it is suggested that the church offers an acceptable middle ground that can unite the divided Christians in favor of a brighter future in Tojiko.

Kappelist influence decreases and people begin to convert back to Roman Catholcism to avoid descrimination. Why did my land just shrink?
    • No, it is the same size it always was.
    • No, because I had a small sliver of land connecting my land to the Mayan lands.
    • The map you saw isn't the right map.
    • Precisely. You have amped up your expansion by a huge amount. If you are to size that quickly, I would be on the lookout for a negative mod action.
    • Now, let's not get ahead of ourselves. The one who edited the map so the Apache looked bigger than they really are was Courageous.
    • The one I made is correct. One pixel is worth 50 sq km. If the Apache are expanding by 8000 sq km per year, multiplied by five years, divided by 50 sq km per pixel, that's 800 pixels per map. I counted every single one myself. CourageousLife (talk)

  • Apostolic Church: Brother Lando is greatly impressed by the Jīdūhist and Amaterasuist leaders from Tojiko and commissions Brother Zozimus to compile a library of their writings just as Lando once compiled a Mayan Kappellist library. Several priests of the two sects are also asked to stay in Avalon and teach their mystical practices to the apostolic monks. After several weeks meeting with the leaders of the two sects, Lando proposes that they should seek to join themselves to the Apostolic Church. If the two Tojikan sects were to join the Apostolic Church, Lando offers to leave their local hierarchy and masses intact and allow complete liturgical control over their internal matters, but they would have the support of the Apostolic Church and full voting rights in Prime Bishop elections. He proposes leaving both the Jīdūhist and Amaterasuist churches in places as separate "Eastern Rites" of Apostolism not subject to normal hierarchy which would require a territory to be covered by only one diocese (this is the same as Eastern Rite Catholicism). This would allow cities to have both a Jīdūhist Rite Bishop and Amaterasuist Rite Bishop to preserve the particular traditions. (Tojiko Response)

Paper mills continue to make great rolls of paper and with cheap paper now being sold on the market. Rajput Banarjee dies this year, much to the mourning of his fans and readers of his excellent poems. There is much saddness and grief. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Atlantia. As a result Uttarshina is expanded by 9200 km. It is announced that the colonies in Atlanta are to be split into three. This is due to the growing number of people coming in to settle in the colonies in very large numbers. The nation continues its large propaganda campaigns and all over the nation posters promoting unity are spread. Hindi continues to grow in strength as the trading language in all of the Maharajyan territories. The military sees new inventions such as rifles and better cannons produced for the army. Old equipment is either sold or melted down and recycled into new rifles and cannons for the army. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Assam continues to see robust economic growth, surpassing even Orissa in the growth rate. As more people move and more jobs are created, is becomes clear that some parts are more isolated than others. As a reuslt, road construction is ordered to commence at full pace. Much migration also takes place between Orissa and the vassals. Proper Amharic continues to gain prominence in many people's lives. In the SOC, interest begins to become even bigger in the language and people begin to go to special classes to learn the language. Propaganda continues to spur the citizens to view the Ethiopians akin to Orissans and as cultural "brothers". Growing more pro-Ethiopian attitudes leads to a small but steady stream of merchants and ordinary citizens beginning to travel to Ethiopian colonies. Many head to Ethiopia itself and begin top admire the Ethiopian culture. The Raja continues to compemplate plans for acquiring a new colony somewhere in Africa. The Levantines are asked for a trading agreement and are also asked if the Orissans can invest in the canal being constructed. Steam boats begin to be built to transport good across rivers and from Maharajya to Dakshin Maharajya (collective name for Mataram and Brunei). Saxena Constructions begin to build bigger steam ships for heavier transportation duties. The military begins its work in creating a new class of warship using the steam ships. Many are bought from the Saxena Group and research begins on a prototype. The Group gains a lot of money in the transaction. The newly conquered areas continue to be assimilated into the Maharajya. Extensive schools begin to be built, roads begin construction and new canal plans are announced. The South is to become a heavy investment area.

Naya Bihar sees growth on its coast as cities begin to grow and rival some in the Maharajya itself. Naya Bihar's economy grows. The natives begin to be converted into the ways of hinduism by the arriving colonists and citizens. Butung also builds up its infrastructure. Huge amounts of propaganda is put into play in the newly assimilated territories and many stories from the time of the just Orissans seeps through to the people as things told from mouth become confirmed in propaganda. Hindi becomes even more commonly spoken and most people when visiting other cities regularly speak Hindi to other folk.
