  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg and its subjects expand their economies. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands by 750 px. During the summer, Johan Scmitz finishes his steam-powered ship and sets it off in Neustadt harbor. A crowd gathered to watch as Scmitz and his volunteer crew sailed the fifty foot ship around the harbor. After a couple hours, he puts the ship back into his private berth, and begins refining his design. King Wilhelm, thankful for the backing of Oldenburg, again approaches the King of Westphalia, asking for him to support Prussia's re-admission to the HRE, and it joining the defensive alliance. (Mod response, please)
    • Westphalia agrees.
  • Reme: Reme begins to build up its military and economy. After a long, heated discussion of how Reme would governed, the tribal representatives (as well as notable Byzantine-Borealians) decide to create a republic, with a basic constitution that would be given basic rights to citizens of Reme. After these discussions, a rich Byzantine-Borealian named Stephanos Shawnee, and becomes the first President of Reme. Shawnee starts to upgrade trade and military services. However seeing Reme, a new nation, vulnerable to foreign attack, starts to encourage militarization of the west, and opens up to military alliances with other nations. Meanwhile trade is improved on, with industrialization, mainly former Byzantine areas slowly being introduced to populous areas. Lumber, cash crops, and other goods become a major export of Reme, and starts getting Reme a jump-start into the European economy. Shawnee also commands the creation of a couple new navy ships, to help modernize the outdated Remian navy. Stephanos Shawnee asks for a military and economic trade alliance, and offers fine jewelry to the Aragonite monarch.
    • Aragon accepts this offering from Reme and sends back cool things in return.
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue expanding their road network throughout the nation. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion. 
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Arcadia: The Dominion of Arcadia (the former colonies of Arcadia and New Cambridgeshire) revolt against the tyrannical Brittannic rule. In September of 1800 the Dominion of Arcadia officially declared independence with  written declaration. "The people of the Dominion of Arcadia and the holdings hereunto, having long been grieved by the ineffective and corrupt government of the once mighty Empire of Britannia, oppressed and marginalized, thusly dissolve all government and national ties with the Empire. Therefore, without further delay, the Nation will be formed, and will fight to secure Liberty and Propserity for all citizens. On this day, September 11, in the Year of our Lord 1800, the Dominion and territories assoicated shall form a new Nation, with the goal to establish and promote security and Liberty against the Tyrannies of the Age." The nation raises a national army to fight in the War of Britannic Aggression. The National Revolutionary Congress is founded to run as interim government during the war. The war starts in ernest when National militia members force Brittannic forces from Boston. Benjamin Gregory Yates, former ambassador of Britannia is appointed as Arcadian Foreign Minister and begins to try to rally support for independence from other nations. National recognition is requested from major European powers. Phamplets are distributed all across the nation to drum up public support for the war. Firebrand preacher, Patrick Williams becomes instrumental in publishing what becomes known as The Arcadian Liberties Treatsies.
    • The Commonwealth of Borealia fully recognizes the legitimacy of Arcadia, and pledges both economic and military support. We offer Arcadia to be included in the New Munich defense pact along with Algonquia and New Austria.
    • The Kingdom of Aragon officially recognizes the independent nation of Arcadia and sends military aid to help in the independence effort.
  • Algonquia: Also offers support, including 15,000 troops to assist in the war. It also requests that the government guarantee the traditional rights and lands of the Cree and L'nu peoples in Arcadia.
    • Arcadian Dip: Arcadia wishes to champion the wellbeing and rights of all its citizens. The proud L'nu people will be protected from any sort of attempt at the marginalization and depression of its peoples, as with the Cree. They will have representation in the new Congress and will be treated as partners in our quest for a new world.
  • Grand Duchy of Moscow: This turn in Moscow and all vassals is officially dedicated to economicor military. We begin recovering from recent wars and rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and defenses. Surprised by the sudden betrayal we faced by our neighbors, we put aside resources for new fortifications and an updated military. Ship production continues, as does trade along our many trade routes. The settlement at St Patriksburg is expanded, with a large Kremlin and port being constructed.
  • Lombardy: We continue rebuilding the nation after the recent war with Spain. The military is reformed from the foundation of units formed during the war, and trained to adequately defend the nation. This turn is officially dedicated to economy or military. We continue influencing Westphalia. Our alliance is renewed, and begin interests in reuniting our union.
  • Rhineland: This turn is dedicated to military and economic expansion. We begin training a military based on the militias established to fight the nation of France. We work closely with Dutch and Westphalian specialists to properly train our armed forces. We also begin industrializing across our nation, incorporating the latest technological innovations from the Lowlands and Germany, paired with techniques learned from our time under France. We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.
  • Wu: As we approach into 1800s now. The outposts and bunkers begin building around. Economy and military improving.
    • ​Yue: The temple is clearly to be built.
    • Min: Miners found the gold, and now taking the stock and market for the company. Economy improving.
    • Chu: Fortress is made within stone, also building an outpost for defense.
  • Ayutthaya: The Ruler's primary goal is to continue developing strong ports and modernise our navy. Technology used from Dutch is used to make stronger and more effective ships. Our military continues to modernise and we focus on developing the strongest and most up-to-date soldiers along with effective weaponry and armour. The population of Ayutthaya continues to grow at a substansial rate and many suburbs in Ayutthaya are expanded. More farmland is build in rural areas and trade routes are grown. One more large warship is built to help strengthen our navy. We cut all relations with other nations other than the Dutch to start with a fresh slate with the surrounding nations.
  • Tartary: The economy and military of Tartary are developed this year. Farming is the largest industry throughout the nation. The nation continues to develop cities. The population of Tartary continues to become larger. Tartary looks to establish an alliance with Scandinavia. We continue to expand 1000 px northeast. The Emperor position is re-established, and Alexis I becomes the Emperor.
    • Great Perm: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Azov: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bukhara: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bajkal: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Khiva: We build up our military and economy.
    • Kingdom of Parthia: We build up our military and economy.
  • Oldenburg: After years of research, military scientists at the University of Osnabruck unveil their new gun. They call it the Windbuchse. It is, as the name suggests, an air rifle, which makes it quieter and cheaper to run than its gunpowder-powered rivals. What makes the Windbuchse so special is its patented reloading system allowing ten shots to be fired before reloading. Whilst still only a prototype, the scientists believe that it will be ready for use by at least a portion of the army in five years. Neu Juist (Newfoundland colony) expands 2000 px inland, filling in the black strip.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire continues to recover from the devastating war that afflicted the nation in recent years, and efforts are made to heal the nation as best as possible. The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained. Trade routes are re-established in order to help the economy recover and new tax laws and reforms are put into place to help the economy recover and grow. The lose of the Borealian provinces hurts the economy significantly, and as such the Roman Empire looks to other markets to replace the goods lost by the loss of the colonies there. The government continues to move along with its new reforms, and the country is preparing for its first elections that will take place in 1800 and will decide the new face of the Senate and Imperial government.
    • Luwitria (Or something like that): The colony was relatively unaffected by the war, and as such life more or less continued on normally, although contact with the Empire was much less often than before. As such, the colony developed a sense of nationalism and independence in very much the same way that the other archonates did during the war. Luckily, the government in Constantinople realizes this and offers them the same representation rights that the archonates are now given in the Imperial Senate. This does much to ease any of the potential political issues at the present time. 
    • Italy: Italy begins to recover from the war, and the local military and economy continues to grow and stabilize in the aftermath. The economy is largely built up with help from the central government, as the entire economy is in shambles and the central government is doing its best to help the entire Empire grow and interconnect better through economics. 
  • In Aragon the nation continues to prosper as a center of the arts and learning.. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Aragon also becomes a place where artists and intellectual minds meet and do things. It is cool. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. We send diplomats, military experts, and other personnel to help the new nation of Borealia. Also, the government decides to send aid to the rebels in Arcadia, including military advisors, a number of soldiers, and weapons. With the advent of steam power, factories begin to be built and stuff. Textile mills, cloth factories, and other places begin to harness steam power to do more thing faster, which creates more jobs that people move to cities to get. Industrialization is gaining speed. The construction of ships and weaponry continues. A mutual defense pact is offered to Lombardy.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1799, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. CuriaBavariaFlag The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. It is a regional legislature. The Diet orders the German Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement infrastructural, diplomatic, and tax base laws. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I (born 1737) and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Mary's children are: Elisabeth-Anna Germania (born 1770), Franz-Hector (born 1771), Marguerita (born 1774), Johann Agatha (born 1774). Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Germany maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. RBCcoa The RBSC, founded in the late fifteenth century, is finally formalized and given a royal charter by King Leopold II in 1662. The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In political news, the Queen continues to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. By year end, it becomes clear that industrialization is spreading in Germany after a long period of stagnation. In other news, the idea of Romanticisim and a departure of political liberalism catch on in Germany, and in Bavaria in particular. In political news, Queen Mary I continues to serve as the chief executive in all Bavaro-German politics. With Marcel Neierman at her side, and the Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg also aiding her, the Queen continually works on drafting a sturdy, effective parliament. The details of the Hochstag and Perlachtag are further hammered out, with Mary I bent on making sure such instability seen in the 1750s and 1780s will never be seen again. She goes on campaigns around the country trying to gather support for the new legislature, whilst also demonizing Romanticism and painting it as a violent, barbaric belief, and is an enemy to the common Bavarian. Many commoners and gentry accept the Queen's policies, and those groups form the backbone of her urban support. In the countryside she is less popular, and is still somewhat seen as the long dead King Frederick's puppet. Noticing this, Mary tours around the countryside as well, pledging to bring representation and parliamentary democracy to all those in the countryside. She notes while making speeches in several northern villages that the abolition of the title 'Supreme Chancellor' is still very much on her list. Marcel Neierman, now a popular figure, makes the same points in his own meetings in Swabia and Venezia. In religious and cultural news, the Department of Judaic Affairs continues to grow, mostly composed of spies and officials who act to quash anti-Jew sentiments in various municipal governments, which are prone to caving in to popular riots and the like. The Department earns the hate of the most zealous Catholics and is regarded as a corrupt organizations infringing on the rights of Christians. In royal news, Prince Franz-Hector and Elisabeth von Habsburg give birth to a daughter, whom they named Klara-Franzina. In political news, the country is overjoyed when Queen Mary I announces that the reformed Deutsche Diet will be established next year, in 1796. This new diet will be located in Augsburg and will be held in the old Parliamentary Palace. However, now there will be two houses, not one. The lower house will be named the Perlachtag, and will consists of commoners, burghers, and other un-noble men. Furthermore, members of the Perlachtag will be voted into offices, and the voting population consists of all landowning men who pay a $100 (in reichstalers) one-time fee to be able to vote. The upper house, the Hochtag, will function the same way as the old Deutsche did, where members were only members in virtue of their landed, hereditary title. Mary I also declares that the Hochtag has no veto power whatsoever, and cannot block any legislation sent up to them. The same goes for the Perlachtag when it concerns pieces of legislation sent to them by the Hochtag. The only figure with veto power is the head of the Deutsche Diet, known as the Chancellor, who may be elected by popular vote from any of the two houses, (the title of Supreme Chancellor, commonly held by the King or Queen, will be abolished, meaning that the Crown will have no role is legislation), and the reigning monarch. Furthermore, to put a piece of legislation into law, the said piece will require the signature of both the Chancellor and Monarch. Mary I announces these new plans to an excited reception, and the Monarchy grows ever more popular in 1795. Many begin to push for Marcel Neierman to involve himself in the reformed Diet and eventually run for Chancellor. The year goes on quietly other than that, except for a failed harvest in Munich and fears of a famine. In response to this, Mary I orders that the surplus food stocks of Landshut, Regensburg, Augsburg, and Ulm go to Munich in the Winter. In other news, Queen Mary I reconvenes the newly reformed Deutsche Diet to massive enthusiasm and support. In 1798, the first elections occur and 450 men are elected to the Perlachtag. Already, many are prompting Marcel Neierman to launch a campaign for the Chancellery. Marcel Neierman runs for a seat in the Perlachtag and wins it, becoming a parliamentarian. Queen Mary I is happy to know of the new scientific discoveries of infrared rays in Bavaria.
    • Ddcoa2Deutsche Diet: The Deutsche Diet, also known as the German Parliament or German Diet, is established by the decree of Queen Frances I in 1736, and is given a charter that year. Gregory Hartingen, elected in 1775, is Präsident. In 1785, confidence votes are held and Hartingen's popularity rests at 33%. The Diet is once more suspended in 1790 following the Augsburg Revolt and subsequent period of instability.
    • Flag of AustriaKingdom of Austria (Constituent State of the CUG): Troops authorized by the King and Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. The Austrian Council is created as an independent privy council for the King. CuriaAustriaFlagThe Curia Austria, led by Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg since 1787, remains the official legislature in Austria. The next Minister-Governor elections are set for 1797. The Curia  is popular in Vienna and surrounding areas. Parliamentarians usually pass laws concerning taxes, diplomacy, and infrastructure. Tomas Bergman is successfully re-elected as Minister-Governor in 1792.
    • Flag of Most Serene Republic of Venice'Kingdom of Venezia '''(Constituent State of the CUG): Troops authorized by the Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. In following the example of her predecessors, Queen Mary I initiates the Venetian Restoration, which aims to improve the general infrastructure of the country after the great destruction of the previous war. Poorhouses are established all around the country, particularly in Venice and Tyrol. Furthermore, the streets are cleaned up of wartime debris and rubble. In 1770, Venezia is released from Austrian rule and is established as a constituent state int the CUG. Following protests for a regional legislature, the Deutsche Diet complies and forms the Curia Venexia. The Curia is responsible for overseeing the legal, economi and political goings on of all those in Venezia.
    • Flagge Preußen - Provinz BrandenburgDuchy of Brandenburg (Constituent State of the CUG): Troops authorized by Grand Duke George I (born 1758) continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. George I's children are: George (born 1773), Anne (born 1775), Eleanor-Rosa (born 1778), and Margaret (born 1781). . The Curia Marca is founded as the regional legislature of Brandenburg, and mostly concerns laws of state and church within Brandenburg. 
    • Pommernflagpm3Duchy of Pomerania  (Constituent State of the CUG): Troops authorized by Franz-Hector I (born 1733) continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. A university, with slight Catholic foundations, is founded in Stettin, which is named the Lady Mary University, after the late Duchess Mary. Franz-Hector is returned to power after King Frederick I dies in 1766. The Curia Pomerania is founded as a regional legislature in Pomerania, being tasked with governing the realm and overseeing prosperity in terms of competent legislature.
    • Flagge der Hansestadt LübeckCity of Lübeck (Constituent City of the CUG): Troops authorized by the King and Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. The port of Lübeck is expanded and several ships are constructed.

Several cogs are constructed, and plans are drafted to construct many larger ships. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port.
    • NewBavariaFlagNew Bavaria (Colony of the CUG): The colony of Nei Baiern continues to expand in population. Katharinas-Hafen, Franznacken, Bayreuth, Nei Regens, and Regenholz all expand by the end of the year. Houses and shops in each settlement continue being built. Jülichsberg and Wittlesberg both expand. Nei Baiern expands 2000 km. The militias and shops are developed. A small logging and fishing town is founded north of Wilhelmsbaum island, on the mainland. The settlement, mainly populated by Saxons, comes to be called Regenholz. 
    • NewSwabiaFlagNew Swabia (Colony of the CUG): The colony of Neu Schwaben is established in 1750. The colony is situated in the humid, tropical regions of south-central Borealia, and is mostly composed of Spanish-speaking Hispanics, as well as Aztecan and Mayan settlers. In Europe, Bavarians are encouraged to settle in Nei Schwaben.
    • PearlRiverFlagPearl River (Colony of the CUG): The outpost of Perlefluss is established. A capital is expected to be constructed over the next few years. The capital of Pearl River is named Pearl River, after the colony itself.
  • BoraliaFlagCommonwealth of Borealia: Both the military and economy improve. An industrial revolution takes off in the land. Recent theories on economics and agriculture have led to the expansion of businesses at an exponential rate, including various forms of manufacturing, mining, and printing. Machines using steam power are also popular, as the first factories appear. Some of these businesses are also internationally based, buying and selling to the neighboring colonies of France, Britain, and Scandinavia, as well as the sovereign states of Aragon, Algonquia and Germany. The most productive of these businesses is the buffalo industry, monopolized by a few companies based in Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City). The professional army and cavalry are continually trained, while the forts on both borders are expanded and new artillery is manufactured. More caravels and frigates are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands across the Pacific. The University of New Vienna continues to produce new intellectuals and engineers. A private university in New Munich constructs a prototype steam engine, and believes this could possibly revolutionize transportation. This same year, a steam engine is attached to a caravel that successfully sails up the Amerigo River (OTL Columbia River), astonishing passer-byes. The Curia is very interested in applying these to recently-constructed ships. Various publication companies for newspapers, pamphlets, and books circulate throughout the nation and are distributed to their neighbors as well. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in both the forests and plains, and these become the effective weaponry for local village militias. The most prolific of these publications propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and New Orleans. The Curia votes to claim all the land south of the 55th Parallel, from The Lesser Adelheid Lake (OTL Lesser Slave Lake) to the ocean. Frontiersmen start settling in that area looking for more gold. The commonwealth secretly sends economic aid to rebels in colonies across the continent. As for the French, militias throughout the southeastern plains begin forming a strong border guard, turning back all new settlers and refusing to relinquish one square acre of Borealia's sovereign territory. Pamphlets with rebellious propaganda are sent throughout French Borealia. A census is taken this year, in which the population is found to have risen to 1.6 million. The commonwealth offers to sell buffalo to Reme, and offers to mass manufacture raw materials from any state in Borealia. The Curia sends 2000 men to defend Arcadia from the Britons, declaring that any aggression from Britannia would be considered an act of war against the continent.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is officially opened. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Grand Senate meets again and discusses the issue of the war in Spain extensively, and end by giving the ultimate decision on whether or not to prolong neutrality (especially in lieu of the riots) to the Electoral council, who is to meet later this year to decide to reaffirm or oust Supreme Prince (and Bajan) Ivan. Another big thing to happen this year is the approval of an all-union flag, a red-blue-white tricolour (OTL Russian Flag), with white representing Finnic peoples, Red representing Germanic peoples, and Blue representing Slavic peoples, all represented in equal bands to show unity and equality of all in the UK . The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. The Civil war ends with the capitulation of Konigsberg and the signing of the treaty of Vilnus, which divided the territory between the reformed Republics of Prussia and Lithuania, and Poland. As a result, much of the old nobility is tried and convicted of high treason and have their lands, titles, and wealth confiscated, and they themselves sentenced to life in prison on an island-prison run by the PIC (not the best of places) or sentenced to work as labourers in Zlatobrezhie. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the amount of rebellions in the future. The PIC pokes around near Namibia again, just to get killed off by the natives once more. in other news stuff happens. The Pskovian industrial complex begins to be more and more built up, with much more mechanization as technology advances. An inquisitive physicist, Vecheslav Drobovitskiy invents the Twin-piston steam engine, and sells his invention to the highest bidder. A new wave of industry is about to enter the nation of Pskov. As improvements in many fields of knowledge begin to rise, Pskov is seen more and more as the heart of Russian civilization. To legitimize its position even further, after the death of Patriarch Tikhon this year, a new one, Patriarch Adrian, at this point being the Bishop of Pskov, is elected the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and swiftly after his election chose to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. Troops mobilize further into Africa, making quick progress and overwhelming the |ontean defences. Their weakening economy and inefficient taxation system(based around a gift economy) weakening both the morale of the troops and their will to fight against a more trained and better equipped and disciplined UK force. The |ontean navy is all but decimated, with around 100 ships taken as prizes and rechristened with a blue on white cross of St Andrew (the UK naval jack-blue saltire on white field). Some Generals have taken to speaking with local magistrates directly, promising some privileges kept in exchange for supporting PIC dominance (some accept, others unwisely reject). In any case, fighting continues.***The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. The government of Eesti asks the Grand Senate of the Union to give it some money to help the residents of the City of Tartu and rebuild. Luckily, the Union nations deem it worthy of the surplus, and each gives a small amount of their GDP, and the Bank of Pskov also extends a generous loan to the Estonian government. Residents of Tartu mostly either Flee to the country until their city can be rebuilt, or move to the neighbouring cities of Narva and Pskov. However, due to the size, a considerable amount of people stay, the government promising relief.
      • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
      • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. The Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish
      • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarus and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase

We also begin industrializing across our nation, incorporating the latest technological innovations from the Lowlands and Germany, paired with techniques learned from our time under France. We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.
  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and it's subjects expand their economies. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands by 750 px. Johan Scmitz tests his refined steamship design this year. He concludes that side-mounted paddle wheels make the best use of the engines. After several more test runs, Scmitz leaves Neustadt harbor and enters the Baltic sea. The ship, he decided on the name Prometheus, handles the rougher waters and enters Rostock a couple hours later. Soon, the Prometheuss' success begins attracting shipbuilders, civilian and military, looking to put their company name on more like it. Schmitz opts to test and refine Prometheus, and her under construction sister Hermes, further. King Wilhelm, with the expressed support of the King of Westphalia and Duke of Oldenburg, extends an offer to Prussia for it to rejoin the HRE and its defensive alliance. (Mod response, please)
  • Accepted, I guess? Other mods can oppose if they so choose. 
  • I am Prussia ... ~ Blocky
    • It's been over 15 days since your last post so Prussia is NPC. I am that guy (talk) 02:02, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
  • Ayutthaya: The Ruler's primary goal is to continue developing strong ports and modernise our navy. Technology used from Dutch is used to make stronger and more effective ships. Our military continues to modernise and we focus on developing the strongest and most up-to-date soldiers along with effective weaponry and armour. The population of Ayutthaya continues to grow at a substansial rate and many suburbs in Ayutthaya are expanded. More farmland is build in rural areas and trade routes are grown. One more large warship is built to help strengthen our navy. We cut all relations with other nations other than the Dutch to start with a fresh slate with the surrounding nations.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach nine million by 1740. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. The Scandinavian aristocracy, one of the richest in the world, enjoys events, tax exemptions, and more authority. The citizens of Scandinavia are outraged. In the meantime, the governors of the Scandinavian colonies and their cohorts are appeased by the Scandinavian monarchy. This display of open coffers on the part of Scandinavia delays independence. Kristoffer III dies this year. The throne passes to Kristoffer IV.

    • Ohijo: The militia of Ohijo is established while the economy is established. The capital of Ohijo is established as Rolvstead after General Jans Rolvson, who led the Scandinavians to victory in the Minor Lake Skirmishes. Rolvstead was originally a trading depot for European traders before the Erie tribes raided it. While parts of the town are relatively intact, other parts have been demolished, re-purposed, or have otherwise decayed.
    • Schleswig: The military and economy are expanded. Schleswig has been a vassal of the Scandinavian Empire for quite some time. All land routes into Scandinavia go through this vassal, meaning Schleswig is one of Scandinavia's wealthiest vassals.

    • Andea: With the growing call for democracy, the Inca Empire sees its first major reform since the 1400s. A new, constitutional monarchy is formed in the nation, consisting of the Inca Proper for now. Military, navy and economy improve. Population stands and 18 million, and continues growing. The Buenas Noches Doctrine is overturned, replaced with the Democratic Constitution of Buenas Noches. This new constitution allows for any male citizen born in Andea or the Andean Union to vote for the Prime Minister. With the new government, we seek to confirm relations with France, and Rome. The nation sees the first use of steam power.  with their acceptance in Osea, further Spaniards leave Andea, totaling about 5000 from Andea proper. In order to better support our ally Osea, we withdraw our alliances with Buenos Aires and Uruguay and declare them illegitimate nations. The capital is relocated to Buenas Noches, which stands at 20,000 people. Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate.
      • Union of Upper Peru: Chimor and Collaquyimbaya, both prosperous under the Inca, have merged into one nation under the new nation Andea. The nation remains in a personal union with Andea, though they also adopt the Buenas Noches Constitution and the Cuzco Codes. Military, economy and navy improve.

      • Vorlayacor: Military, economy and navy improve. The nation sees a massive expansion of its infrastructure, with the Royal family owning much of the nation's infrastructure. Population stands at five million, mostly Andean settlers who relocated for the cheap land. Ties between Andea and Vorlayacor deepen,as the Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate. The Andean Government also projects the idea that the only way to stop assimilation from occurring is for the Mapuche and Andeans to remain united.
      •  Kingdom of South Chile: Military, economy and navy improve. Population stands at 40,000, as Andean settlers come and Spanish settlers go. In total, 5000 Andeans come and 10,000 Spanish go.

The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained. Trade routes are re-established in order to help the economy recover and new tax laws and reforms are put into place to help the economy recover and grow. The lose of the Borealian provinces hurts the economy significantly, and as such the Roman Empire looks to other markets to replace the goods lost by the loss of the colonies there. The government continues to move along with its new reforms, and the country is preparing for its first elections that will take place in 1800 and will decide the new face of the Senate and Imperial government.
    • Luwitria (Or something like that): The colony was relatively unaffected by the war, and as such life more or less continued on normally, although contact with the Empire was much less often than before. As such, the colony developed a sense of nationalism and independence in very much the same way that the other archonates did during the war. Luckily, the government in Constantinople realizes this and offers them the same representation rights that the archonates are now given in the Imperial Senate. This does much to ease any of the potential political issues at the present time. 
    • Italy: Italy begins to recover from the war, and the local military and economy continues to grow and stabilize in the aftermath. The economy is largely built up with help from the central government, as the entire economy is in shambles and the central government is doing its best to help the entire Empire grow and interconnect better through economics.

Mining continues in the colony of Nouvelle Orleans. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The king is outraged, for such freedom given to the Rhenish kingdom so much betrayal! In an act of sheer punishment he declares an all-out war against the rebels and the nobles he dispatches a coalition army of around 400,000 troops (from all around the empire) to quell the uprising. in the now called French Borealia, the displacement of small Spanish settlements begin, offering a free ride for them to return back into Castile, and exchange or sell their possessions in the colonies or swear allegiance to the King. Trinity colony expands by 700 sq km, a local uprising begins in Nouvelle Orleans city (OTL Cartagena de las Indias, colombia) it soon spreads through the country to Coucut (OTL Cucuta) Sableville (In falcon venezuela) and St Joseph d'Bacatte (OTL Bogota) and Basse Nubou (Shortened Nouvelle Bourdeaux, OTL Bucaramanga) Demanding the lowering of the taxes in the colony, and the granting of local self ruling, the King considers it, making a promise to do so within the next 30 years, thinking it to be far enough for the promise to be forgotten. The government agrees on giving the californian state or region self ruling recognizing its own right to determine its destiny however remaining a territory of the borealian Domain. The colony of Emeraldia is given free state status with the official name of Etat-livre du Nouvelle Orleans.

      • Andorra: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up.
      • Africa: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy.

Vandalian, however, dominates area of Tripolitania's coast with a population of around 5000 speakers in the region. French is still the main language officially. Trading outposts begin to be made in the border of the country to trade with Tuareg and inland tribes. Sends supplies to the Rhenish War.
      • French Mali: Due to vast piracy campaigns which France and Spain have contributed to has resulted in many pirate coves in the Bissagos Islands, and as a result a larger influx of Frenchmen arrived this year, though they still don't even make up 1% yet. Ports continue to expand appropriately and the region becomes a place worth note on many maps. Roads continue being built to outlying villages and plantations continue being built.

  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is expanded. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the amount of rebellions in the future. The PIC pokes around near nubimia again, just to get killed off by the natives once more. in other news stuff happens. The Pskovian industrial complex begins to be more and more built up, with much more mechanization as technology advances. An inquisitive physicist, Vecheslav Drobovitskiy invents the Twin-piston steam engine, and sells his invention to the highest bidder. A new wave of industry is about to enter the nation of Pskov. As improvements in many fields of knowledge begin to rise, Pskov is seen more and more as the heart of Russian civilization. To legitimize its position even further, after the death of Partiarch Tikhon this year, a new one, Patriarch Adrian, at this point being the Bishop of Pskov, is elected the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and swiftly after his election choses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. Troops mobilize farther into Africa, making quick progress and overwhelming the |ontean defences. The War with |onte comes to a close this year, with the signing of the Treaty of Kunene . The Pskov Imperial company gains lands to the south for their own endeavours, and the |onteans give incredible sums of both money, and economic power to the Pskov Imperial Company, granting them preferential trade, and limited control over economic policy, and the permission to use |ontean labourers.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. The government of Eesti asks the Grand Senate of the Union to give it some money to help the residents of the City of Tartu and rebuild. Luckily, the Union nations deem it worthy of the surplus, and each gives a small amount of their GDP, and the Bank of Pskov also extends a generous loan to the Estonian government. Residents of Tartu mostly either Flee to the country until their city can be rebuilt, or move to the neighbouring cities of Narva and Pskov. However, due to the size, a considerable amount of people stay, the government promising relief.

After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarus and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase
  • BoraliaFlagCommonwealth of Borealia: Both the military and economy improve. An industrial revolution takes off in the land. Recent theories on economics and agriculture have led to the expansion of businesses at an exponential rate, including various forms of manufacturing, mining, and printing. Machines using steam power are also popular, as the first factories appear. Some of these businesses are also internationally based, buying and selling to the neighboring colonies of France, Britain, and Scandinavia, as well as the sovereign states of Aragon, Algonquia and Germany. The most productive of these businesses is the buffalo industry, monopolized by a few companies based in Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City). The professional army and cavalry are continually trained, while the forts on both borders are expanded and new artillery is manufactured. Caravels and frigates fitted with steam engines are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands across the Pacific. The University of New Vienna continues to produce new intellectuals and engineers. Various publication companies for newspapers, pamphlets, and books circulate throughout the nation and are distributed to their neighbors as well. The first telegraph is invented as a means of communication between public buildings in New Vienna. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in both the forests and plains, and these become the effective weaponry for local village militias. The most prolific of these publications propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and California. The Curia votes to claim all the land south of the 55th Parallel, from The Lesser Adelheid Lake (OTL Lesser Slave Lake) to the ocean. Frontiersmen start settling in that area looking for more gold. The commonwealth secretly sends economic aid to rebels in colonies across the continent. As for the French, militias throughout the southeastern plains begin forming a strong border guard, turning back all new settlers and refusing to relinquish one square acre of Borealia's sovereign territory. Support is secretly given to the rebels in California, on the condition that the sovereign territory of Borealia is not infringed. The commonwealth offers to mass manufacture raw materials from any state in Borealia. The Curia sends 2000 men to defend Arcadia from the Britons, declaring that any aggression from Britannia would be considered an act of war against the continent. A pledge for mutual defense is offered to Reme.
  • Reme: Reme begins to build up its military and economy. After a long, heated discussion of how Reme would governed, the tribal representatives (as well as notable Byzantine-Borealians) decide to create a republic, with a basic constitution that would be given basic rights to citizens of Reme. After these discussions, a rich Byzantine-Borealian named Stephanos Shawnee, and becomes the first President of Reme. Shawnee starts to upgrade trade and military services. However seeing Reme, a new nation, vulnerable to foreign attack, starts to encourage militarization of the west, and opens up to military alliances with other nations. Meanwhile trade is improved on, with industrialization, mainly former Byzantine areas slowly being introduced to populous areas. Lumber, cash crops, and other goods become a major export of Reme, and starts getting Reme a jump-start into the European economy. Shawnee also commands the creation of a couple new navy ships, to help modernize the outdated Remian navy. Stephanos Shawnee accepts the offer from Britannia, hopping that they can secure the independence of Borealia from imperialistic European powers.
  • In Aragon the nation continues to prosper as a center of the arts and learning.. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Aragon also becomes a place where artists and intellectual minds meet and do things. It is cool. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. We send diplomats, military experts, and other personnel to help the new nation of Borealia. Also, the government decides to send aid to the rebels in Arcadia, including military advisors, a number of soldiers, and weapons. With the advent of steam power, factories begin to be built and stuff. Textile mills, cloth factories, and other places begin to harness steam power to do more thing faster, which creates more jobs that people move to cities to get. Industrialization is gaining speed. The construction of ships and weaponry continues. A mutual defense pact is offered to Lombardy.
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue expanding their road network throughout the nation. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion. The Kievan Rus' begin to expand their military.
  • Grand Duchy of Moscow: This turn in Moscow and all vassals is officially dedicated to economicor military. We begin recovering from recent wars and rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and defenses.

Ship production continues, as does trade along our many trade routes. The settlement at St Patriksburg is expanded, with a large Kremlin and port being constructed.
  • Lombardy: We continue rebuilding the nation after the recent war with Spain. The military is reformed from the foundation of units formed during the war, and trained to adequately defend the nation. This turn is officially dedicated to economy or military. We continue influencing Westphalia. Our alliance is renewed, and begin interests in reuniting our union.
  • Rhineland: This turn is dedicated to military and economic expansion. We begin training a military based on the militias established to fight the nation of France. We work closely with Dutch and Westphalian specialists to properly train our armed forces. We also begin industrializing across our nation, incorporating the latest technological innovations from the Lowlands and Germany, paired with techniques learned from our time under France. We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and its subjects expand their militaries. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands by 750 px. Johan Scmitz completes construction of his second steamship, the Hermes, this year and soon takes it out on its maiden voyage. In August, satisfied with its performance, he forms and trains crews for each of them and takes them on a tour around the Baltic: leaving Neustadt, they stop in Lübeck, Danzig, Königsberg, Riga, Pskov, St Patriksburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Malmö before returning to Neustadt. At each stop, crowds of fascinated spectators greet the Prometheus and Hermes.
  • Andea: With the growing call for democracy, the Inca Empire sees its first major reform since the 1400s.

    • Vorlayacor: Military, economy and navy improve. The nation sees a massive expansion of its infrastructure, with the Royal family owning much of the nation's infrastructure. Population stands at five million, mostly Andean settlers who relocated for the cheap land. Ties between Andea and Vorlayacor deepen,as the Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate. The Andean Government also projects the idea that the only way to stop assimilation from occurring is for the Mapuche and Andeans to remain united.
    •  Kingdom of South Chile: Military, economy and navy improve. Population stands at 40,000, as Andean settlers come and Spanish settlers go. In total, 5000 Andeans come and 10,000 Spanish go.

  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Ayutthaya: The Ruler's primary goal is to continue developing strong ports and modernise our navy. Technology used from Dutch is used to make stronger and more effective ships.

The population of Ayutthaya continues to grow at a substancial rate and many suburbs in Ayutthaya are expanded. More farmland is build in rural areas and trade routes are grown. One more large warship is built to help strengthen our navy. We cut all relations with other nations other than the Dutch to start with a fresh slate with the surrounding nations.
  • Ethiopia: We expand the maximum amount to the south, into the unclaimed regions of Somalia. We also continue to westernize, and are looking to the culture of Egypt to the north. Our third university is finished (the second one was the Nubian one) in the northernmost regions of our nation.
  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach nine million by 1740. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. The Scandinavian aristocracy, one of the richest in the world, enjoys events, tax exemptions, and more authority. The citizens of Scandinavia are outraged. In the meantime, the governors of the Scandinavian colonies and their cohorts are appeased by the Scandinavian monarchy. This display of open coffers on the part of Scandinavia delays independence. A new colony is founded in OTL Hondeklip Bay. It is called Hondeklip.
    • Helluland: The military and economy are improved. Helluland expands by 1000 sq km this year. Helluland is responsible for the production of furs in the Scandinavian Empire, generating much profit for the colony.

Rolvstead was originally a trading depot for European traders before the Erie tribes raided it. While parts of the town are relatively intact, other parts have been demolished, re-purposed, or have otherwise decayed.
    • Schleswig: The military and economy are expanded. Schleswig has been a vassal of the Scandinavian Empire for quite some time. All land routes into Scandinavia go through this vassal, meaning Schleswig is one of Scandinavia's wealthiest vassals.

We continue influencing Westphalia. Our alliance is renewed, and begin interests in reuniting our union.
  • Rhineland: This turn is dedicated to military and economic expansion. We begin training a military based on the militias established to fight the nation of France. We work closely with Dutch and Westphalian specialists to properly train our armed forces. We also begin industrializing across our nation, incorporating the latest technological innovations from the Lowlands and Germany, paired with techniques learned from our time under France. We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire continues to recover from the devastating war that afflicted the nation in recent years, and efforts are made to heal the nation as best as possible. The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained. Trade routes are re-established in order to help the economy recover and new tax laws and reforms are put into place to help the economy recover and grow. The lose of the Borealian provinces hurts the economy significantly, and as such the Roman Empire looks to other markets to replace the goods lost by the loss of the colonies there. The government continues to move along with its new reforms, and the country is preparing for its first elections that will take place in 1800 and will decide the new face of the Senate and Imperial government.
    • Luwitria (Or something like that): The colony was relatively unaffected by the war, and as such life more or less continued on normally, although contact with the Empire was much less often than before. As such, the colony developed a sense of nationalism and independence in very much the same way that the other archonates did during the war. Luckily, the government in Constantinople realizes this and offers them the same representation rights that the archonates are now given in the Imperial Senate. This does much to ease any of the potential political issues at the present time. 
    • Italy: Italy begins to recover from the war, and the local military and economy continues to grow and stabilize in the aftermath. The economy is largely built up with help from the central government, as the entire economy is in shambles and the central government is doing its best to help the entire Empire grow and interconnect better through economics. 
  • France: Military, navy and economy are built up. The colony continues expanding and growing by 100 sq km among both colonies into the Galapago Islands called Illes d'Neptune. The colonies continue growing as expected. The colony of Nouvelle Rouen continues to expand inland throughout the land corridor given by Cahokie by 9800 sq km. Mining continues in the colony of Nouvelle Orleans. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The king is outraged, for such freedom given to the Rhenish kingdom so much betrayal! In an act of sheer punishment he declares an all-out war against the rebels and the nobles he dispatches a coalition army of around 400,000 troops (from all around the empire) to quell the uprising. in the now called French Borealia, the displacement of small Spanish settlements begin, offering a free ride for them to return back into Castile, and exchange or sell their possessions in the colonies or swear allegiance to the King. Trinity colony expands by 700 sq km, a local uprising begins in Nouvelle Orleans city (OTL Cartagena de las Indias, colombia) it soon spreads through the country to Coucut (OTL Cucuta) Sableville (In falcon venezuela) and St Joseph d'Bacatte (OTL Bogota) and Basse Nubou (Shortened Nouvelle Bourdeaux, OTL Bucaramanga) Demanding the lowering of the taxes in the colony, and the granting of local self ruling, the King considers it, making a promise to do so within the next 30 years, thinking it to be far enough for the promise to be forgotten. The government agrees on giving the californian state or region self ruling recognizing its own right to determine its destiny however remaining a territory of the borealian Domain. The colony of Emeraldia is given free state status with the official name of Etat-livre du Nouvelle Orleans.

Vandalian, however, dominates area of Tripolitania's coast with a population of around 5000 speakers in the region. French is still the main language officially. Trading outposts begin to be made in the border of the country to trade with Tuareg and inland tribes. Sends supplies to the Rhenish War.
      • French Mali: Due to vast piracy campaigns which France and Spain have contributed to has resulted in many pirate coves in the Bissagos Islands, and as a result a larger influx of Frenchmen arrived this year, though they still don't even make up 1% yet.

  • BoraliaFlagCommonwealth of Borealia: Both the military and economy improve. An industrial revolution takes off in the land. Recent theories on economics and agriculture have led to the expansion of businesses at an exponential rate, including various forms of manufacturing, mining, and printing. Machines using steam power are also popular, as the first factories appear. Some of these businesses are also internationally based, buying and selling to the neighboring colonies of France, Britain, and Scandinavia, as well as the sovereign states of Aragon, Algonquia and Germany. The most productive of these businesses is the buffalo industry, monopolized by a few companies based in Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City). The professional army and cavalry are continually trained, while the forts on both borders are expanded and new artillery is manufactured. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in both the forests and plains, and these become the effective weaponry for local village militias.Caravels and frigates fitted with steam engines are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands across the Pacific. The University of New Vienna continues to produce new intellectuals and engineers. Telegraphs are commonly used by public buildings across the state. Various publication companies for newspapers, pamphlets, and books circulate throughout the nation and are distributed to their neighbors as well. The most prolific of these publications propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and California. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion on both Newburg Island (OTL Graham Island) and Franz-Hector Island (OTL Prince of Wales Island). A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. The commonwealth offers to mass manufacture raw materials from any state in Borealia. The Curia sends 2000 men to defend Arcadia from the Britons, declaring that any aggression from Britannia would be considered an act of war against the continent. Arcadia is likewise offered an agreement of mutual defense.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1799, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. CuriaBavariaFlag The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. It is a regional legislature. The Diet orders the German Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement infrastructural, diplomatic, and tax base laws. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I (born 1737) and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Mary's children are: Elisabeth-Anna Germania (born 1770), Franz-Hector (born 1771), Marguerita (born 1774), Johann Agatha (born 1774). Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Germany maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. RBCcoa The RBSC, founded in the late fifteenth century, is finally formalized and given a royal charter by King Leopold II in 1662. The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In political news, the Queen continues to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. By year end, it becomes clear that industrialization is spreading in Germany after a long period of stagnation. In other news, the idea of Romanticisim and a departure of political liberalism catch on in Germany, and in Bavaria in particular. In political news, Queen Mary I continues to serve as the chief executive in all Bavaro-German politics. With Marcel Neierman at her side, and the Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg also aiding her, the Queen continually works on drafting a sturdy, effective parliament. The details of the Hochstag and Perlachtag are further hammered out, with Mary I bent on making sure such instability seen in the 1750s and 1780s will never be seen again. She goes on campaigns around the country trying to gather support for the new legislature, whilst also demonizing Romanticism and painting it as a violent, barbaric belief, and is an enemy to the common Bavarian. Many commoners and gentry accept the Queen's policies, and those groups form the backbone of her urban support. In the countryside she is less popular, and is still somewhat seen as the long dead King Frederick's puppet. Noticing this, Mary tours around the countryside as well, pledging to bring representation and parliamentary democracy to all those in the countryside. She notes while making speeches in several northern villages that the abolition of the title 'Supreme Chancellor' is still very much on her list. Marcel Neierman, now a popular figure, makes the same points in his own meetings in Swabia and Venezia. In religious and cultural news, the Department of Judaic Affairs continues to grow, mostly composed of spies and officials who act to quash anti-Jew sentiments in various municipal governments, which are prone to caving in to popular riots and the like. The Department earns the hate of the most zealous Catholics and is regarded as a corrupt organizations infringing on the rights of Christians. In royal news, Prince Franz-Hector and Elisabeth von Habsburg give birth to a daughter, whom they named Klara-Franzina. In political news, the country is overjoyed when Queen Mary I announces that the reformed Deutsche Diet will be established next year, in 1796. This new diet will be located in Augsburg and will be held in the old Parliamentary Palace. However, now there will be two houses, not one. The lower house will be named the Perlachtag, and will consists of commoners, burghers, and other un-noble men. Furthermore, members of the Perlachtag will be voted into offices, and the voting population consists of all landowning men who pay a $100 (in reichstalers) one-time fee to be able to vote. The upper house, the Hochtag, will function the same way as the old Deutsche did, where members were only members in virtue of their landed, hereditary title. Mary I also declares that the Hochtag has no veto power whatsoever, and cannot block any legislation sent up to them. The same goes for the Perlachtag when it concerns pieces of legislation sent to them by the Hochtag. The only figure with veto power is the head of the Deutsche Diet, known as the Chancellor, who may be elected by popular vote from any of the two houses, (the title of Supreme Chancellor, commonly held by the King or Queen, will be abolished, meaning that the Crown will have no role is legislation), and the reigning monarch. Furthermore, to put a piece of legislation into law, the said piece will require the signature of both the Chancellor and Monarch. Mary I announces these new plans to an excited reception, and the Monarchy grows ever more popular in 1795. Many begin to push for Marcel Neierman to involve himself in the reformed Diet and eventually run for Chancellor. The year goes on quietly other than that, except for a failed harvest in Munich and fears of a famine. In response to this, Mary I orders that the surplus food stocks of Landshut, Regensburg, Augsburg, and Ulm go to Munich in the Winter. In other news, Queen Mary I reconvenes the newly reformed Deutsche Diet to massive enthusiasm and support. In 1798, the first elections occur and 450 men are elected to the Perlachtag. Already, many are prompting Marcel Neierman to launch a campaign for the Chancellery. Marcel Neierman runs for a seat in the Perlachtag and wins it, becoming a parliamentarian. Queen Mary I is happy to know of the new scientific discoveries of infrared rays in Bavaria.
    • Ddcoa2Deutsche Diet: The Deutsche Diet, also known as the German Parliament or German Diet, is established by the decree of Queen Frances I in 1736, and is given a charter that year.

Poorhouses are established all around the country, particularly in Venice and Tyrol. Furthermore, the streets are cleaned up of wartime debris and rubble. In 1770, Venezia is released from Austrian rule and is established as a constituent state int the CUG. Following protests for a regional legislature, the Deutsche Diet complies and forms the Curia Venexia. The Curia is responsible for overseeing the legal, economi and political goings on of all those in Venezia.

    • PearlRiverFlagPearl River (Colony of the CUG): The outpost of Perlefluss is established. A capital is expected to be constructed over the next few years. The capital of Pearl River is named Pearl River, after the colony itself.
  • In Aragon the nation continues to prosper as a center of the arts and learning.. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Aragon also becomes a place where artists and intellectual minds meet and do things. It is cool. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. We send diplomats, military experts, and other personnel to help the new nation of Borealia. Also, the government decides to send aid to the rebels in Arcadia, including military advisors, a number of soldiers, and weapons. With the advent of steam power, factories begin to be built and stuff. Textile mills, cloth factories, and other places begin to harness steam power to do more thing faster, which creates more jobs that people move to cities to get. Industrialization is gaining speed. The construction of ships and weaponry continues. A mutual defense pact is offered to Lombardy.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is expanded. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the amount of rebellions in the future. The Pskovian industrial complex begins to be more and more built up, with much more mechanization as technology advances. An inquisitive physicist, Vecheslav Drobovitskiy invents the Twin-piston steam engine, and sells his invention to the highest bidder. A new wave of industry is about to enter the nation of Pskov. As improvements in many fields of knowledge begin to rise, Pskov is seen more and more as the heart of Russian civilization. To legitimize its position even further, after the death of Partiarch Tikhon this year, a new one, Patriarch Adrian, at this point being the Bishop of Pskov, is elected the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and swiftly after his election choses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. The PIC consolidates its control over its newly acquired West African territories, allowing certain magistrates to retain their positions so long as they learn either Russian or Latvian (but highly encouraged to learn both). The Diamonds found there are very profitable indeed.***The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. The government of Eesti asks the Grand Senate of the Union to give it some money to help the residents of the City of Tartu and rebuild. Luckily, the Union nations deem it worthy of the surplus, and each gives a small amount of their GDP, and the Bank of Pskov also extends a generous loan to the Estonian government. Residents of Tartu mostly either Flee to the country until their city can be rebuilt, or move to the neighbouring cities of Narva and Pskov. However, due to the size, a considerable amount of people stay, the government promising relief.
      • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
      • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. The Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish
      • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarus and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase
  • Algonquia: Modernization of the economy and military continues swiftly in all subchiefdoms. With the restoration of the gift economy following the civil war, many of landlords and nobles are dispossessed of much of their fortunes, while peasants are considerably enriched and placed at an advantage. Nomadic herding becomes less common as more people settle down to farm or to participate in new, more specialized industries such as mining or weaving. Seeking to reduce the economy's dependence on commodities in the export market, the High Sachem begins sponsoring specialized craftsmen from Europe to immigrate and settle down. Many thousands take up his offer, particularly from France. Both luxury goods like casina, furs and ivory and more practical goods like whale oil, lumber and dried cod are traded. The military grows, with the High Sachem seeking to create a small weapons-manufacturing industry to supply it, and sponsoring many gunsmiths to achieve this. With abundant supplies of guano in the nation, gunpowder production becomes an important industry throughout.In the nation's southernmost regions, fertilizer use, mainly based around guano, vastly increases agricultural production, supplemented with the increased use of crop rotations and rest years for fields. The population explodes as agricultural production increases, leading to an overcrowding crisis in the cities. The government encourages urban dwellers to leave for the country and take up farming. The navy continues to expand, alongside the merchant marine, as the government funds the immigration of shipwrights. Algonquia begins to support rebellious sentiment, particularly among Native peoples, throughout Arcadia, albeit secretly. The High Sachem officially claims the titles of Grand Chief of Mississipia and L'nu Emperor this year, using this newfound authority to encourage natives in Arcadia to revolt. Longtime anger against the destruction of the L'nu among the native peoples is stirred up, and the L'nu chiefs are encouraged to call up and train the old militias. As small uprisings begin to break out, Algonquia gives arms and training to the rebels. Algonquia accepts the Aragonese offer of a mutual defence pact from last year. It also officially endorses the New Munich Declaration. The High Sachem, however, adds the caveat that the native peoples of Borealia, as its first inhabitants, must have their rights and ancestral lands respected.
  • Lombardy: We continue rebuilding the nation after the recent war with Spain. The military is reformed from the foundation of units formed during the war, and trained to adequately defend the nation. This turn is officially dedicated to economy or military. We continue influencing Westphalia. Our alliance is renewed, and begin interests in reuniting our union. In order to standardize our scientific units, Lombardian scientists at the Imperial Society create a system known as the Metric System, which is based on base ten.
  • Rhineland: This turn is dedicated to military and economic expansion. We begin training a military based on the militias established to fight the nation of France. We work closely with Dutch and Westphalian specialists to properly train our armed forces. We also begin industrializing across our nation, incorporating the latest technological innovations from the Lowlands and Germany, paired with techniques learned from our time under France. We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.
  • Reme: Reme begins to build up its military and economy. After a long, heated discussion of how Reme would governed, the tribal representatives (as well as notable Byzantine-Borealians) decide to create a republic, with a basic constitution that would be given basic rights to citizens of Reme. After these discussions, a rich Byzantine-Borealian named Stephanos Shawnee, and becomes the first President of Reme. Shawnee starts to upgrade trade and military services. However seeing Reme, a new nation, vulnerable to foreign attack, starts to encourage militarization of the west, and opens up to military alliances with other nations. Meanwhile trade is improved on, with industrialization, mainly former Byzantine areas slowly being introduced to populous areas. Lumber, cash crops, and other goods become a major export of Reme, and starts getting Reme a jump-start into the European economy. Shawnee also commands the creation of a couple new navy ships, to help modernize the outdated Remian navy. Stephanos Shawnee asks for a military and economic trade alliance, and offers fine jewelry to the Aragonite monarch.

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and its subjects expand their militaries. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands by 750 px. Johan Scmitz further tests and refines his steamships, Hermes and Prometheus, but begins considering moving his operation to Kiel, Rostock, or Hamburg City. This year, the Hamburg East India Company, a subsidiary of the Hamburg Trading & Shipping Company, opens warehouses in Cambodia and Vietnam, and Asks permission from Ayutthaya to do the same there.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Ayutthaya: The Ruler's primary goal is to continue developing strong ports and modernise our navy. Technology used from Dutch is used to make stronger and more effective ships. Our military continues to modernise and we focus on developing the strongest and most up-to-date soldiers along with effective weaponry and armour. The population of Ayutthaya continues to grow at a substancial rate and many suburbs in Ayutthaya are expanded. More farmland is build in rural areas and trade routes are grown. One more large warship is built to help strengthen our navy. We cut all relations with other nations other than the Dutch to start with a fresh slate with the surrounding nations.
  • Wu: We continue to improve military even more to increase or popularity of forces and troops. Economy is expanding. There will be some other buildings ahead, but in the future.
    • Yue: The economy gains, and expansion continues to 500 px.
    • Min: Gold been delivered to stocks. Economy gains.
    • Chu: Fortress still getting some upgrades to the castle.
  • Andea: With the growing call for democracy, the Inca Empire sees its first major reform since the 1400s. A new, constitutional monarchy is formed in the nation, consisting of the Inca Proper for now. Military, navy and economy improve. Population stands and 18 million, and continues growing. The Buenas Noches Doctrine is overturned, replaced with the Democratic Constitution of Buenas Noches. This new constitution allows for any male citizen born in Andea or the Andean Union to vote for the Prime Minister. With the new government, we seek to confirm relations with France, and Rome. The nation sees the first use of steam power.  with their acceptance in Osea, further Spaniards leave Andea, totaling about 5000 from Andea proper. In order to better support our ally Osea, we withdraw our alliances with Buenos Aires and Uruguay and declare them illegitimate nations. The capital is relocated to Buenas Noches, which stands at 20,000 people. Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate.
    • Union of Upper Peru: Chimor and Collaquyimbaya, both prosperous under the Inca, have merged into one nation under the new nation Andea. The nation remains in a personal union with Andea, though they also adopt the Buenas Noches Constitution and the Cuzco Codes. Military, economy and navy improve. With a very small Spanish minority, few leave the area. Population stands at six million. Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate. 
    • Kingdom of Chile: Military, economy and navy improve. Population stands at 55,000, as Andean settlers come into the nation and Spaniards leave the nation. In total, 10,000 Andean settlers arrive and 5000 Spaniards leave. Ties with Andea and South Chile deepen, with the Buenas Noches Constitution being adopted in the nation. Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate. 
    • Kingdom of Aymara: Military, economy and navy improve. Population stands at 45,000, as Andean settlers come and Spaniards go. In total, 5000 Andea settlers come and 2000 Spanish leave.

    • Kingdom of Tiwanku: Military, economy and navy improve. Population stands at 30,000, as Andean settlers come and Spanish settlers go. In total, 5000 Andeans come and 1000 Spanish go. Ties with Andea Deepen. Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate. 
    • Kingdom of Apeac: Military, economy and navy improve. Population stands at 50,000, as Andean settlers come and Spanish settlers go. In total, 5000 Andeans come and 1000 Spanish go. Ties with Andea Deepen. Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate. 
    • Vorlayacor: Military, economy and navy improve. The nation sees a massive expansion of its infrastructure, with the Royal family owning much of the nation's infrastructure. Population stands at five million, mostly Andean settlers who relocated for the cheap land. Ties between Andea and Vorlayacor deepen,as the Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate. The Andean Government also projects the idea that the only way to stop assimilation from occurring is for the Mapuche and Andeans to remain united.
    •  Kingdom of South Chile: Military, economy and navy improve. Population stands at 40,000, as Andean settlers come and Spanish settlers go. In total, 5000 Andeans come and 10,000 Spanish go. Ties with Andea and Chile deepen. Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate. 
  • Arcadia: The Dominion of Arcadia (the former colonies of Arcadia and New Cambridgeshire) The National Revolutionary Congress is founded to run as interim government during the war. The war starts in ernest when National militia members force Brittannic forces from Boston. Benjamin Gregory Yates, former ambassador of Britannia is appointed as Arcadian Foreign Minister and begins to try to rally support for independence from other nations. National recognition is requested from major European powers. Phamplets are distributed all across the nation to drum up public support for the war. Firebrand preacher, Patrick Williams becomes instrumental in publishing what becomes known as The Arcadian Liberties Treatsies. The National Revolutionary Congress convenes at Micmac to discuss the direction the new nation should go, whether to stay with the old ways or to embrace radical new changes to national government. Two factions emerge in the debate, the Monarchists and the Federalists, one wishes to establish a limited constitutional monatchy, citing stability and the fact that it is the most common of governments. The Federalists however, want a Constitutional Federal Republic with an elected assembly and leader. Both sides debate heavily on the best course of action for the nation. Leaders of the L'nu in Arcadia are invited to the National Congress proceedings. General
    The Dominion

    The New State divisions

    Albert C Westinghouse, leader of the National Army requests their joining stating "Arcadia belongs to all her inhabitants. Therefore, it stands to reason, that this Nation's oldest inhabitants have a seat and the decision making table, Full Representation is a necessity if we are to show the world We the People can build a better government. Congress also votes to divide the Nation into 13 states with one neutral district that is to become the official capital at the end of the war (the capital is in St John's ATM, OTL Providence) the new states are as follows: Mimac, Itica, St John's, New Oxford, Abanaki, Hudson, St Charles, Algonquin, Cree, Fredrick, Artica, New Foundland, Labrador. The 14th state will be a special autonomous region in a location to be deemed in a upcoming meet.
    • The Commonwealth of Borealia sends full diplomatic and military support, sending 10,000 men to to aid in the war, and headed by General William Newburg the Younger. Borealia also offers a mutual alliance to protect Arcadia from further European intervention.
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue expanding their road network throughout the nation. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion. The Kievan Rus' continue to expand their military.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire continues to recover from the devastating war that afflicted the nation in recent years, and efforts are made to heal the nation as best as possible. The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained. Trade routes are re-established in order to help the economy recover and new tax laws and reforms are put into place to help the economy recover and grow. The lose of the Borealian provinces hurts the economy significantly, and as such the Roman Empire looks to other markets to replace the goods lost by the loss of the colonies there. The government continues to move along with its new reforms, and the country is preparing for its first elections that will take place in 1800 and will decide the new face of the Senate and Imperial government.
    • Luwitria (Or something like that): The colony was relatively unaffected by the war, and as such life more or less continued on normally, although contact with the Empire was much less often than before. As such, the colony developed a sense of nationalism and independence in very much the same way that the other archonates did during the war. Luckily, the government in Constantinople realizes this and offers them the same representation rights that the archonates are now given in the Imperial Senate. This does much to ease any of the potential political issues at the present time. 
    • Italy: Italy begins to recover from the war, and the local military and economy continues to grow and stabilize in the aftermath. The economy is largely built up with help from the central government, as the entire economy is in shambles and the central government is doing its best to help the entire Empire grow and interconnect better through economics. 
  • France: Military, navy and economy are built up. The colony continues expanding and growing by 100 sq km among both colonies into the Galapago Islands called Illes d'Neptune. The colonies continue growing as expected. The colony of Nouvelle Rouen continues to expand inland throughout the land corridor given by Cahokie by 9800 sq km. Mining continues in the colony of Nouvelle Orleans. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The king is outraged, for such freedom given to the Rhenish kingdom so much betrayal! In an act of sheer punishment he declares an all-out war against the rebels and the nobles he dispatches a coalition army of around 400,000 troops (from all around the empire) to quell the uprising. in the now called French Borealia, the displacement of small Spanish settlements begin, offering a free ride for them to return back into Castile, and exchange or sell their possessions in the colonies or swear allegiance to the King. Trinity colony expands by 700 sq km, a local uprising begins in Nouvelle Orleans city (OTL Cartagena de las Indias, colombia) it soon spreads through the country to Coucut (OTL Cucuta) Sableville (In falcon venezuela) and St Joseph d'Bacatte (OTL Bogota) and Basse Nubou (Shortened Nouvelle Bourdeaux, OTL Bucaramanga) Demanding the lowering of the taxes in the colony, and the granting of local self ruling, the King considers it, making a promise to do so within the next 30 years, thinking it to be far enough for the promise to be forgotten. The government agrees on giving the californian state or region self ruling recognizing its own right to determine its destiny however remaining a territory of the borealian Domain. The colony of Emeraldia is given free state status with the official name of Etat-livre du Nouvelle Orleans.
      • Kingdom of Rhenanie: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy.
      • Kingdom of Lower Burgundy: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy.
      • Sardinia-Corsica: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The Sardinian language has lowered its usage to only 10% of the population of Sardinia (roughly 50,000 people) with the speaking African (43%) and French (38%) or Vandalian (9% African Rhenish German dialect) and with the vast majority being able to speak both African and French (that is more or less 85% of the nation's population). The population is stable at 500,000 people.
      • Andorra: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up.
      • Africa: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure is built up as well as navy. The African language has become the de facto leading language surpassing every other (outside of French) being spoken by the 2.3 million people living in the country as either native or second language. Vandalian, however, dominates area of Tripolitania's coast with a population of around 5000 speakers in the region. French is still the main language officially. Trading outposts begin to be made in the border of the country to trade with Tuareg and inland tribes. Sends supplies to the Rhenish War.
      • French Mali: Due to vast piracy campaigns which France and Spain have contributed to has resulted in many pirate coves in the Bissagos Islands, and as a result a larger influx of Frenchmen arrived this year, though they still don't even make up 1% yet. Ports continue to expand appropriately and the region becomes a place worth note on many maps. Roads continue being built to outlying villages and plantations continue being built.
      • Artois: Military and economy are built up. Infrastructure and navy are built up. The nation prepares an army for the conflict in Britannia.
      • Free City of Danzig: The military, economy, infrastructure, and navy are built up, Danzig Asks for an alliance with the current Prussian and Polish government
      • Cahokie: Christianization of the locals continues. Military, navy, infrastructure and economy
  • In Aragon the nation continues to prosper as a center of the arts and learning.. The repair and construction of new buildings, roads and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Aragon also becomes a place where artists and intellectual minds meet and do things. It is cool. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. We send diplomats, military experts, and other personnel to help the new nation of Borealia. Also, the government decides to send aid to the rebels in Arcadia, including military advisors, a number of soldiers, and weapons. With the advent of steam power, factories begin to be built and stuff. Textile mills, cloth factories, and other places begin to harness steam power to do more thing faster, which creates more jobs that people move to cities to get. Industrialization is gaining speed. The construction of ships and weaponry continues. A mutual defense pact is offered to Lombardy.
  • Tartary: The economy and military of Tartary are developed this year. Farming is the largest industry throughout the nation. The nation continues to develop cities. The population of Tartary continues to become larger. Tartary looks to establish an alliance with Scandinavia. We continue to expand 1000 px northeast. The Emperor position is re-established, and Alexis I becomes the Emperor.
    • Great Perm: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Azov: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bukhara: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bajkal: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Khiva: We build up our military and economy.
    • Kingdom of Parthia: We build up our military and economy.
  • BoraliaFlagCommonwealth of Borealia: Both the military and economy improve. An industrial revolution takes off in the land. Recent theories on economics and agriculture have led to the expansion of businesses at an exponential rate, including various forms of manufacturing, mining, and printing. Machines using steam power are also popular, as the first factories appear. Some of these businesses are also internationally based, buying and selling to the neighboring colonies of France, Britain, and Scandinavia, as well as the sovereign states of Reme, Aragon, Algonquia and Germany. The most productive of these businesses is the buffalo industry, monopolized by a few companies based in Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City). The professional army and cavalry are continually trained, while the forts on both borders are expanded and new artillery is manufactured. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in both the forests and plains, and these become the effective weaponry for local village militias.Caravels and frigates fitted with steam engines are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands across the Pacific. The University of New Vienna continues to produce new intellectuals and engineers. Telegraphs are commonly used by public buildings across the state. Various publication companies for newspapers, pamphlets, and books circulate throughout the nation and are distributed to their neighbors as well. The most prolific of these publications propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and California. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion on both Newburg Island (OTL Graham Island) and Franz-Hector Island (OTL Prince of Wales Island). A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. The commonwealth begins influencing the French colonies. As military and diplomatic support is sent to Reme, the curia also offers to mass manufacture raw materials from them and sell bison products. Borealia declares war on Britannia, seeing that they have violated the New Munich declaration. The Curia sends 10,000 men to Arcadia led by the intrepid General William Newburg the Younger. Arcadia is likewise offered an agreement of mutual defense.
  • Duchy of Oldenburg: Final tests are done on the Windbuchse design before large-scale production begins next year. The economy expands, and Neu Juist expands into the black inland area.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is expanded. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the amount of rebellions in the future. The Pskovian industrial complex begins to be more and more built up, with much more mechanization as technology advances. An inquisitive physicist, Vecheslav Drobovitskiy invents the Twin-piston steam engine, and sells his invention to the highest bidder. A new wave of industry is about to enter the nation of Pskov. As improvements in many fields of knowledge begin to rise, Pskov is seen more and more as the heart of Russian civilization. To legitimize its position even further, after the death of Partiarch Tikhon this year, a new one, Patriarch Adrian, at this point being the Bishop of Pskov, is elected the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and swiftly after his election choses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. The PIC consolidates its control over its newly acquired West African territories, allowing certain magistrates to retain their positions so long as they learn either Russian or Latvian (but highly encouraged to learn both). The Diamonds found there are very profitable indeed.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. The government of Eesti asks the Grand Senate of the Union to give it some money to help the residents of the City of Tartu and rebuild. Luckily, the Union nations deem it worthy of the surplus, and each gives a small amount of their GDP, and the Bank of Pskov also extends a generous loan to the Estonian government. Residents of Tartu mostly either Flee to the country until their city can be rebuilt, or move to the neighbouring cities of Narva and Pskov. However, due to the size, a considerable amount of people stay, the government promising relief.
    • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.

    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarus and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1799, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. CuriaBavariaFlag The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. It is a regional legislature. The Diet orders the German Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement infrastructural, diplomatic, and tax base laws. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I (born 1737) and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Mary's children are: Elisabeth-Anna Germania (born 1770), Franz-Hector (born 1771), Marguerita (born 1774), Johann Agatha (born 1774). Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Germany maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. RBCcoa The RBSC, founded in the late fifteenth century, is finally formalized and given a royal charter by King Leopold II in 1662. The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In political news, the Queen continues to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. By year end, it becomes clear that industrialization is spreading in Germany after a long period of stagnation. In other news, the idea of Romanticisim and a departure of political liberalism catch on in Germany, and in Bavaria in particular. In political news, Queen Mary I continues to serve as the chief executive in all Bavaro-German politics. With Marcel Neierman at her side, and the Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg also aiding her, the Queen continually works on drafting a sturdy, effective parliament. The details of the Hochstag and Perlachtag are further hammered out, with Mary I bent on making sure such instability seen in the 1750s and 1780s will never be seen again. She goes on campaigns around the country trying to gather support for the new legislature, whilst also demonizing Romanticism and painting it as a violent, barbaric belief, and is an enemy to the common Bavarian. Many commoners and gentry accept the Queen's policies, and those groups form the backbone of her urban support. In the countryside she is less popular, and is still somewhat seen as the long dead King Frederick's puppet. Noticing this, Mary tours around the countryside as well, pledging to bring representation and parliamentary democracy to all those in the countryside. She notes while making speeches in several northern villages that the abolition of the title 'Supreme Chancellor' is still very much on her list. Marcel Neierman, now a popular figure, makes the same points in his own meetings in Swabia and Venezia. In religious and cultural news, the Department of Judaic Affairs continues to grow, mostly composed of spies and officials who act to quash anti-Jew sentiments in various municipal governments, which are prone to caving in to popular riots and the like. The Department earns the hate of the most zealous Catholics and is regarded as a corrupt organizations infringing on the rights of Christians. In royal news, Prince Franz-Hector and Elisabeth von Habsburg give birth to a daughter, whom they named Klara-Franzina. In political news, the country is overjoyed when Queen Mary I announces that the reformed Deutsche Diet will be established next year, in 1796. This new diet will be located in Augsburg and will be held in the old Parliamentary Palace. However, now there will be two houses, not one. The lower house will be named the Perlachtag, and will consists of commoners, burghers, and other un-noble men. Furthermore, members of the Perlachtag will be voted into offices, and the voting population consists of all landowning men who pay a $100 (in reichstalers) one-time fee to be able to vote. The upper house, the Hochtag, will function the same way as the old Deutsche did, where members were only members in virtue of their landed, hereditary title. Mary I also declares that the Hochtag has no veto power whatsoever, and cannot block any legislation sent up to them. The same goes for the Perlachtag when it concerns pieces of legislation sent to them by the Hochtag. The only figure with veto power is the head of the Deutsche Diet, known as the Chancellor, who may be elected by popular vote from any of the two houses, (the title of Supreme Chancellor, commonly held by the King or Queen, will be abolished, meaning that the Crown will have no role is legislation), and the reigning monarch. Furthermore, to put a piece of legislation into law, the said piece will require the signature of both the Chancellor and Monarch. Mary I announces these new plans to an excited reception, and the Monarchy grows ever more popular in 1795. Many begin to push for Marcel Neierman to involve himself in the reformed Diet and eventually run for Chancellor. The year goes on quietly other than that, except for a failed harvest in Munich and fears of a famine. In response to this, Mary I orders that the surplus food stocks of Landshut, Regensburg, Augsburg, and Ulm go to Munich in the Winter. In other news, Queen Mary I reconvenes the newly reformed Deutsche Diet to massive enthusiasm and support. In 1798, the first elections occur and 450 men are elected to the Perlachtag. Already, many are prompting Marcel Neierman to launch a campaign for the Chancellery. Marcel Neierman runs for a seat in the Perlachtag and wins it, becoming a parliamentarian. Queen Mary I is happy to know of the new scientific discoveries of infrared rays in Bavaria.

Two hours overdue, now bring on the mod events

Edge, Sky, can you lend a hand for one more day in terms of events? -MP

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and its subjects expand their economies. In Indochina, Hamburg merchants continue expansion by opening several warehouses, particularly in the Mekong Delta. After several years of, so far, successful testing, the Royal Hamburgian Navy begins serious considerations on military steamships.
  • Ayutthaya: The Ruler's primary goal is to continue developing strong ports and modernise our navy. Technology used from Dutch is used to make stronger and more effective ships. Our military continues to modernise and we focus on developing the strongest and most up-to-date soldiers along with effective weaponry and armour. The population of Ayutthaya continues to grow at a substancial rate and many suburbs in Ayutthaya are expanded. More farmland is build in rural areas and trade routes are grown. One more large warship is built to help strengthen our navy. We cut all relations with other nations other than the Dutch to start with a fresh slate with the surrounding nations.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue expanding their road network throughout the nation. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion. The Kievan Rus' continue to expand their military.
  • Wu: More buildings is building up across the nation, especially Guangzhou is the ones. More economy expansion will be on.
  • Grand Duchy of Moscow: This turn in Moscow and all vassals is officially dedicated to economicor military. We begin recovering from recent wars and rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and defenses. Surprised by the sudden betrayal we faced by our neighbors, we put aside resources for new fortifications and an updated military. Ship production continues, as does trade along our many trade routes. The settlement at St Patriksburg is expanded, with a large Kremlin and port being constructed.
  • Lombardy: We continue rebuilding the nation after the recent war with Spain. The military is reformed from the foundation of units formed during the war, and trained to adequately defend the nation. This turn is officially dedicated to economy or military. We continue influencing Westphalia. Our alliance is renewed, and begin interests in reuniting our union.
  • Rhineland: This turn is dedicated to military and economic expansion. We begin training a military based on the militias established to fight the nation of France. We work closely with Dutch and Westphalian specialists to properly train our armed forces. We also begin industrializing across our nation, incorporating the latest technological innovations from the Lowlands and Germany, paired with techniques learned from our time under France. We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.
  • Yue: More towers could be watched. In purpose to be held in Yue. Economy improves.
  • Min: Bunkers in sight to be planned. Economy improves.
  • Chu: Religions of China, still not yet in facility. It would be made on temple.
  • In Aragon the nation continues to prosper as a center of the arts and learning. The construction of new buildings, roads and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Aragon also becomes a place where artists and intellectual minds meet and do things. It is cool. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. Stronger cements are produced, whatever that means, leading to the construction of some taller buildings, especially in the major cities such as Zaragoza and Valencia. In Zaragoza, Roque Maria Merlo demonstrates the first steam powered locomotive hauled train. We send diplomats, military experts, and other personnel to help the new nation of Borealia. Also, the government decides to send aid to the rebels in Arcadia, including military advisors, a number of soldiers, and weapons. With the advent of steam power, factories begin to be built and stuff. Textile mills, cloth factories, and other places begin to harness steam power to do more thing faster, which creates more jobs that people move to cities to get. Industrialization is gaining speed. The construction of ships and weaponry continues. A mutual defense pact is offered to Lombardy.
  • Croatian Archvoivodeship (Hrvatsko Nadvojvodstvo): Economy turn. Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of the Archvoivodeship. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan and also Britannic expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. As the war for Hungary ends, some Croats and Hungarians are still unsatisfied as not all was achieved since the spoils of war had to be shared with the Romans. With the end of the war against Hispania, Croatia attempts to rebuild its economy using the control over Hercules' Pillars as a support. Trade routes are  strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. The Brothers of the Raven continue spreading their influence in Croatia. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. The navy, under command of the Bajan and the First Admiral is developed due to the purchase of Britannic ships which are inspected and introduced into the Royal War Navy of Croatia or HBRM (Hrvatska Bajanska Ratna Mornarica). Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. Britannic assistance aids with the naval reform. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. The administrative reform continues.
    • Županija Dahomey: The natural resources are quickly put to use, such as coconuts, cotton both refined and raw as well as the gold. Finally, the wood industry prospers as materials are needed for new ships that would help keep the connection between Croatia and Dahomey strong.
    • Isles of the Archvoivodeship (Otoci Nadvojvodstva): The infrastructure is built up.
    • Županija of Hercules Pillars' (Županija Herkulovih Stupova): The županija's pivotal position as a trade nod creates an a sufficite allowing for the economy to expand.
    • Priština Voivodeship (Prištinsko Vojvodstvo): Due to the focus on the regional denominations of the nation, the Serbian national sense slowly suffers.
    • Budva Voivodeship (Budvansko Vojvodstvo): Budva develops and Croatization commences, causing some issues at first.
  • Tartary: The economy and military of Tartary are developed this year. Farming is the largest industry throughout the nation. The nation continues to develop cities. The population of Tartary continues to become larger. Tartary looks to establish an alliance with Scandinavia. We continue to expand 1000 px northeast. The Emperor position is re-established, and Alexis I becomes the Emperor.
    • Great Perm: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Azov: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bukhara: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bajkal: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Khiva: We build up our military and economy.
    • Kingdom of Parthia: We build up our military and economy.
  • Duchy of Oldenburg: The Windbuchse goes into large-scale production, with the contractor using steam-power in his factory to be more efficient. Two small steam-powered weaving factories also start up this year. The economy expands. 
  • Roman Empire: The Empire continues to recover from the devastating war that afflicted the nation in recent years, and efforts are made to heal the nation as best as possible. The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained. Trade routes are re-established in order to help the economy recover and new tax laws and reforms are put into place to help the economy recover and grow. The lose of the Borealian provinces hurts the economy significantly, and as such the Roman Empire looks to other markets to replace the goods lost by the loss of the colonies there. The government continues to move along with its new reforms, and the country is preparing for its first elections that will take place in 1800 and will decide the new face of the Senate and Imperial government.
    • Luwitria (Or something like that): The colony was relatively unaffected by the war, and as such life more or less continued on normally, although contact with the Empire was much less often than before. As such, the colony developed a sense of nationalism and independence in very much the same way that the other archonates did during the war. Luckily, the government in Constantinople realizes this and offers them the same representation rights that the archonates are now given in the Imperial Senate. This does much to ease any of the potential political issues at the present time. 
    • Italy: Italy begins to recover from the war, and the local military and economy continues to grow and stabilize in the aftermath. The economy is largely built up with help from the central government, as the entire economy is in shambles and the central government is doing its best to help the entire Empire grow and interconnect better through economics. 
  • BoraliaFlagCommonwealth of Borealia: Both the military and economy improve. An industrial revolution takes off in the land. Recent theories on economics and agriculture have led to the expansion of businesses at an exponential rate, including various forms of manufacturing, mining, and printing. Machines using steam power are also popular, as the first factories appear. Some of these businesses are also internationally based, buying and selling to the neighboring colonies of France, Britain, and Scandinavia, as well as the sovereign states of Reme, Aragon, Algonquia and Germany. The most productive of these businesses is the buffalo industry, monopolized by a few companies based in Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City). The professional army and cavalry are continually trained, while the forts on both borders are expanded and new artillery is manufactured. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in both the forests and plains, and these become the effective weaponry for local village militias. Caravels and frigates fitted with steam engines are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands across the Pacific. The University of New Vienna continues to produce new intellectuals and engineers. Telegraphs are commonly used by public and private buildings across the state. Various publication companies for newspapers, pamphlets, and books circulate throughout the nation and are distributed to their neighbors as well. The most prolific of these publications propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and California. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion on both Newburg Island (OTL Graham Island) and Franz-Hector Island (OTL Prince of Wales Island). A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. The commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, particularly in the plains, int he hopes of annexing some of the territory later. As military and diplomatic support is sent to Reme, the curia also offers to mass manufacture raw materials from them and sell bison products. Borealia declares war on Britannia, seeing that they have violated the New Munich declaration. The Curia sends 10,000 men to Arcadia led by the intrepid General William Newburg the Younger. Arcadia is likewise offered an agreement of mutual defense.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is expanded. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the amount of rebellions in the future. The Pskovian industrial complex begins to be more and more built up, with much more mechanization as technology advances. An inquisitive physicist, Vecheslav Drobovitskiy invents the Twin-piston steam engine, and sells his invention to the highest bidder. A new wave of industry is about to enter the nation of Pskov. As improvements in many fields of knowledge begin to rise, Pskov is seen more and more as the heart of Russian civilization. To legitimize its position even further, after the death of Partiarch Tikhon this year, a new one, Patriarch Adrian, at this point being the Bishop of Pskov, is elected the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and swiftly after his election choses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. The PIC consolidates its control over its newly acquired West African territories, allowing certain magistrates to retain their positions so long as they learn either Russian or Latvian (but highly encouraged to learn both). The Diamonds found there are very profitable indeed.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. The government of Eesti asks the Grand Senate of the Union to give it some money to help the residents of the City of Tartu and rebuild. Luckily, the Union nations deem it worthy of the surplus, and each gives a small amount of their GDP, and the Bank of Pskov also extends a generous loan to the Estonian government. Residents of Tartu mostly either Flee to the country until their city can be rebuilt, or move to the neigbouring cities of Narva and Pskov. However, due to the size, a considerable amount of people stay, the government promising relief.
    • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. The Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish
    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarus and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase
  • Reme: Reme begins to build up its military and economy. After a long, heated discussion of how Reme would governed, the tribal representatives (as well as notable Byzantine-Borealians) decide to create a republic, with a basic constitution that would be given basic rights to citizens of Reme. After these discussions, a rich Byzantine-Borealian named Stephanos Shawnee, and becomes the first President of Reme. Shawnee starts to upgrade trade and military services. However seeing Reme, a new nation, vulnerable to foreign attack, starts to encourage militarization of the west, and opens up to military alliances with other nations. Meanwhile trade is improved on, with industrialization, mainly former Byzantine areas slowly being introduced to populous areas. Lumber, cash crops, and other goods become a major export of Reme, and starts getting Reme a jump-start into the European economy. Shawnee also commands the creation of a couple new navy ships, to help modernize the outdated Remian navy. Stephanos Shawnee accepts the Commonwealth of Borealia's offer for a military alliance.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1799, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. CuriaBavariaFlag The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. It is a regional legislature. The Diet orders the German Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement infrastructural, diplomatic, and tax base laws. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I (born 1737) and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Mary's children are: Elisabeth-Anna Germania (born 1770), Franz-Hector (born 1771), Marguerita (born 1774), Johann Agatha (born 1774). Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Germany maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. RBCcoa The RBSC, founded in the late fifteenth century, is finally formalized and given a royal charter by King Leopold II in 1662. The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In political news, the Queen continues to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. By year end, it becomes clear that industrialization is spreading in Germany after a long period of stagnation. In other news, the idea of Romanticisim and a departure of political liberalism catch on in Germany, and in Bavaria in particular. In political news, Queen Mary I continues to serve as the chief executive in all Bavaro-German politics. With Marcel Neierman at her side, and the Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg also aiding her, the Queen continually works on drafting a sturdy, effective parliament. The details of the Hochstag and Perlachtag are further hammered out, with Mary I bent on making sure such instability seen in the 1750s and 1780s will never be seen again. She goes on campaigns around the country trying to gather support for the new legislature, whilst also demonizing Romanticism and painting it as a violent, barbaric belief, and is an enemy to the common Bavarian. Many commoners and gentry accept the Queen's policies, and those groups form the backbone of her urban support. In the countryside she is less popular, and is still somewhat seen as the long dead King Frederick's puppet. Noticing this, Mary tours around the countryside as well, pledging to bring representation and parliamentary democracy to all those in the countryside. She notes while making speeches in several northern villages that the abolition of the title 'Supreme Chancellor' is still very much on her list. Marcel Neierman, now a popular figure, makes the same points in his own meetings in Swabia and Venezia. In religious and cultural news, the Department of Judaic Affairs continues to grow, mostly composed of spies and officials who act to quash anti-Jew sentiments in various municipal governments, which are prone to caving in to popular riots and the like. The Department earns the hate of the most zealous Catholics and is regarded as a corrupt organizations infringing on the rights of Christians. In royal news, Prince Franz-Hector and Elisabeth von Habsburg give birth to a daughter, whom they named Klara-Franzina. In political news, the country is overjoyed when Queen Mary I announces that the reformed Deutsche Diet will be established next year, in 1796. This new diet will be located in Augsburg and will be held in the old Parliamentary Palace. However, now there will be two houses, not one. The lower house will be named the Perlachtag, and will consists of commoners, burghers, and other un-noble men. Furthermore, members of the Perlachtag will be voted into offices, and the voting population consists of all landowning men who pay a $100 (in reichstalers) one-time fee to be able to vote. The upper house, the Hochtag, will function the same way as the old Deutsche did, where members were only members in virtue of their landed, hereditary title. Mary I also declares that the Hochtag has no veto power whatsoever, and cannot block any legislation sent up to them. The same goes for the Perlachtag when it concerns pieces of legislation sent to them by the Hochtag. The only figure with veto power is the head of the Deutsche Diet, known as the Chancellor, who may be elected by popular vote from any of the two houses, (the title of Supreme Chancellor, commonly held by the King or Queen, will be abolished, meaning that the Crown will have no role is legislation), and the reigning monarch. Furthermore, to put a piece of legislation into law, the said piece will require the signature of both the Chancellor and Monarch. Mary I announces these new plans to an excited reception, and the Monarchy grows ever more popular in 1795. Many begin to push for Marcel Neierman to involve himself in the reformed Diet and eventually run for Chancellor. The year goes on quietly other than that, except for a failed harvest in Munich and fears of a famine. In response to this, Mary I orders that the surplus food stocks of Landshut, Regensburg, Augsburg, and Ulm go to Munich in the Winter. In other news, Queen Mary I reconvenes the newly reformed Deutsche Diet to massive enthusiasm and support. In 1798, the first elections occur and 450 men are elected to the Perlachtag. Already, many are prompting Marcel Neierman to launch a campaign for the Chancellery. Marcel Neierman runs for a seat in the Perlachtag and wins it, becoming a parliamentarian. Queen Mary I is happy to know of the new scientific discoveries of infrared rays in Bavaria. In other news, the Deutsche Diet decides to authorizes the first national election for 1806. Immediately, Neierman announces his intent to run
    • Ddcoa2Deutsche Diet: The Deutsche Diet, also known as the German Parliament or German Diet, is established by the decree of Queen Frances I in 1736, and is given a charter that year.

Mod events go here?

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and it's subjects expand their economies. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands 750 px. Johan Scmitz decides to move his steamship operation to Hamburg City, in order to better market his invention. During the move, both Hermes and Prometheus take their first trip through the Kiel Canal, which is still being expanded in a large construction project. The move from Schleswig-Holstein to Hamburg proper goes off with little hassle, and thanks to the centralization, is akin to moving a business from Brunswick to Hanover. Meanwhile, Hamburg merchants continue their expansion into Indochina.
  • Wu: Towers not in position to be built early. Hopefully in 1810s. Meanwhile, some buildings are building around.
    • Yue: Government expects some more gaining forces. Economy expands.
    • Min: Temples will be in progress.
    • Chu: Fortress doing good with the troops and of course the lead of Wu is still managing for the interaction with European countries.
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue expanding their road network throughout the nation. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion. The Kievan Rus' continue to expand their military.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • In Aragon the nation continues to prosper as a center of the arts and learning. The construction of new buildings, roads and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Aragon also becomes a place where artists and intellectual minds meet and do things. It is cool. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. Stronger cements are produced, whatever that means, leading to the construction of some taller buildings, especially in the major cities such as Zaragoza and Valencia. In Zaragoza, Roque Maria Merlo demonstrates the first steam powered locomotive hauled train. We send diplomats, military experts, and other personnel to help the new nation of Borealia. Also, the government decides to send aid to the rebels in Arcadia, including military advisors, a number of soldiers, and weapons. With the advent of steam power, factories begin to be built and stuff. Textile mills, cloth factories, and other places begin to harness steam power to do more thing faster, which creates more jobs that people move to cities to get. Industrialization is gaining speed. The construction of ships and weaponry continues. A mutual defense pact is offered to Lombardy.
  • Tartary: The economy and military of Tartary are developed this year. Farming is the largest industry throughout the nation. The nation continues to develop cities. The population of Tartary continues to become larger. Tartary looks to establish an alliance with Scandinavia. We continue to expand 1000 px northeast. The Emperor position is re-established, and Alexis I becomes the Emperor.
    • Great Perm: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Azov: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bukhara: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bajkal: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Khiva: We build up our military and economy.
    • Kingdom of Parthia: We build up our military and economy.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire continues to recover from the devastating war that afflicted the nation in recent years, and efforts are made to heal the nation as best as possible. The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained. Trade routes are re-established in order to help the economy recover and new tax laws and reforms are put into place to help the economy recover and grow. The lose of the Borealian provinces hurts the economy significantly, and as such the Roman Empire looks to other markets to replace the goods lost by the loss of the colonies there. The government continues to move along with its new reforms, and the country is preparing for its first elections that will take place in 1800 and will decide the new face of the Senate and Imperial government.
    • Luwitria (Or something like that): The colony was relatively unaffected by the war, and as such life more or less continued on normally, although contact with the Empire was much less often than before. As such, the colony developed a sense of nationalism and independence in very much the same way that the other archonates did during the war. Luckily, the government in Constantinople realizes this and offers them the same representation rights that the archonates are now given in the Imperial Senate. This does much to ease any of the potential political issues at the present time. 
    • Italy: Italy begins to recover from the war, and the local military and economy continues to grow and stabilize in the aftermath. The economy is largely built up with help from the central government, as the entire economy is in shambles and the central government is doing its best to help the entire Empire grow and interconnect better through economics. 
  • Duchy of Oldenburg: The first lot of Windbuchse are introduced into active service in the Jaeger regiment. The soldiers immediately take to the gun's multiple rounds, but are less enamoured when it comes to pumping up the air reservoir with a handpump. The gun's inventors, listening to their feedback, begin designing a large pump that could be used by an entire regiment. The military improves, and Neu Juist expands into the blank space. 
  • BoraliaFlagCommonwealth of Borealia: Both the military and economy improve. An industrial revolution takes off in the land. Recent theories on economics and agriculture have led to the expansion of businesses at an exponential rate, including various forms of manufacturing, mining, and printing. Machines using steam power are also popular, as the first factories appear. Some of these businesses are also internationally based, buying and selling to the neighboring colonies of France, Britain, and Scandinavia, as well as the sovereign states of Reme, Aragon, Algonquia and Germany. The most productive of these businesses is the buffalo industry, monopolized by a few companies based in Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City). The professional army and cavalry are continually trained, while the forts on both borders are expanded and new artillery is manufactured. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in both the forests and plains, and these become the effective weaponry for local village militias. Caravels and frigates fitted with steam engines are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands across the Pacific. The University of New Vienna continues to produce new intellectuals and engineers. Telegraphs are commonly used by public and private buildings across the state. Various publication companies for newspapers, pamphlets, and books circulate throughout the nation and are distributed to their neighbors as well. The most prolific of these publications propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and New Orleans. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion on both Newburg Island (OTL Graham Island) and Franz-Hector Island (OTL Prince of Wales Island). A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. The commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, particularly in the plains, in the hopes of annexing some of the territory later. As military and diplomatic support is sent to Reme, the curia also offers to mass manufacture raw materials from them and sell bison products. Borealia declares war on Britannia, seeing that they have violated the New Munich declaration. The Curia sends 10,000 men to Arcadia led by the intrepid General William Newburg the Younger. Arcadia is likewise offered an agreement of mutual defense. 
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is expanded. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the amount of rebellions in the future. The Pskovian industrial complex begins to be more and more built up, with much more mechanization as technology advances. An inquisitive physicist, Vecheslav Drobovitskiy invents the Twin-piston steam engine, and sells his invention to the highest bidder. A new wave of industry is about to enter the nation of Pskov. As improvements in many fields of knowledge begin to rise, Pskov is seen more and more as the heart of Russian civilization. To legitimize its position even further, after the death of Partiarch Tikhon this year, a new one, Patriarch Adrian, at this point being the Bishop of Pskov, is elected the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and swiftly after his election choses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. The PIC consolidates its control over its newly acquired West African territories, allowing certain magistrates to retain their positions so long as they learn either Russian or Latvian (but highly encouraged to learn both). The Diamonds found there are very profitable indeed.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. The government of Eesti asks the Grand Senate of the Union to give it some money to help the residents of the City of Tartu and rebuild. Luckily, the Union nations deem it worthy of the surplus, and each gives a small amount of their GDP, and the Bank of Pskov also extends a generous loan to the Estonian government. Residents of Tartu mostly either Flee to the country until their city can be rebuilt, or move to the neigbouring cities of Narva and Pskov. However, due to the size, a considerable amount of people stay, the goverement promising relief.
    • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. The Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish
    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarus and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase
  • Grand Duchy of Moscow: This turn in Moscow and all vassals is officially dedicated to economicor military. We begin recovering from recent wars and rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and defenses. Surprised by the sudden betrayal we faced by our neighbors, we put aside resources for new fortifications and an updated military. Ship production continues, as does trade along our many trade routes. The settlement at St Patriksburg is expanded, with a large Kremlin and port being constructed.
  • Lombardy: We continue rebuilding the nation after the recent war with Spain. The military is reformed from the foundation of units formed during the war, and trained to adequately defend the nation. This turn is officially dedicated to economy or military. We continue influencing Westphalia. Our alliance is renewed, and begin interests in reuniting our union.
  • Rhineland: This turn is dedicated to military and economic expansion. We begin training a military based on the militias established to fight the nation of France. We work closely with Dutch and Westphalian specialists to properly train our armed forces. We also begin industrializing across our nation, incorporating the latest technological innovations from the Lowlands and Germany, paired with techniques learned from our time under France. We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.

Sikhism begins to spread in India, primarily the Punjab region.

The Nepali people attempt to create a sovereign nation, known as the Gurkha Rajya. Conflict begins between the Urdustani and Nepali forces.

Is this bullshit going to continue? No mod events plus late turns?

At least tell us who the new Pope is.

I'm sorry for the late turn and the late events, I hoped MP would post them, as I fell asleep before the new turn started. -Sky

I also apologize, I had midterms and tests to focus on. Now that I am on spring break, the events and turns will flow much more regularly. -MP

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and its subjects expand their militaries. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands by 750 px. Beginning this year, Hamburgian diplomats begin secret talks with nobles of the Kingdom of Prussia. Those noble express their dissatisfaction at their countries' lack of forward development under the von Hessens. Meanwhile, Johan Scmitz begins construction of his third and largest steamship, dubbed Poseidon, in direct co-operation with the Royal Hamburgian Navy, testing the designs' viability as a weapons platform. In Indochina, after years of merchant expansion in the region, and those around it, Cambodia and Vietnam are offered protectorate status. (Mod response, please)

    • Min: Some reached cities will be in contention for more.
    • Chu: Fortress still solid. Now back to the politics, the Government seems to set up some roads in the Wu territory.
  • Ayutthaya: The Ruler's primary goal is to continue developing strong ports and modernise our navy. Technology used from Dutch is used to make stronger and more effective ships. Our military continues to modernise and we focus on developing the strongest and most up-to-date soldiers along with effective weaponry and armour. The population of Ayutthaya continues to grow at a substancial rate and many suburbs in Ayutthaya are expanded. More farmland is build in rural areas and trade routes are grown. One more large warship is built to help strengthen our navy. We cut all relations with other nations other than the Dutch to start with a fresh slate with the surrounding nations.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire continues to recover from the devastating war that afflicted the nation in recent years, and efforts are made to heal the nation as best as possible. The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained.

  • Andea: With the growing call for democracy, the Inca Empire sees its first major reform since the 1400s. A new, constitutional monarchy is formed in the nation, consisting of the Inca Proper for now. Military, navy and economy improve. Population stands and 18 million, and continues growing. The Buenas Noches Doctrine is overturned, replaced with the Democratic Constitution of Buenas Noches. This new constitution allows for any male citizen born in Andea or the Andean Union to vote for the Prime Minister. With the new government, we seek to confirm relations with France, and Rome. The nation sees the first use of steam power.  with their acceptance in Osea, further Spaniards leave Andea, totaling about 5000 from Andea proper. In order to better support our ally Osea, we withdraw our alliances with Buenos Aires and Uruguay and declare them illegitimate nations. The capital is relocated to Buenas Noches, which stands at 20,000 people. Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate.
    • Union of Upper Peru: Chimor and Collaquyimbaya, both prosperous under the Inca, have merged into one nation under the new nation Andea.

The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the amount of rebellions in the future. The Pskovian industrial complex begins to be more and more built up, with much more mechanization as technology advances. An inquisitive physicist, Vecheslav Drobovitskiy invents the Twin-piston steam engine, and sells his invention to the highest bidder. A new wave of industry is about to enter the nation of Pskov. As improvements in many fields of knowledge begin to rise, Pskov is seen more and more as the heart of Russian civilization. To legitimize its position even further, after the death of Partiarch Tikhon this year, a new one, Patriarch Adrian, at this point being the Bishop of Pskov, is elected the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and swiftly after his election choses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. The PIC consolidates its control over its newly acquired West African territories, allowing certain magistrates to retain their positions so long as they learn either Russian or Latvian (but highly encouraged to learn both). The Diamonds found there are very profitable indeed. Attepmts to bring Prussia back into the UK begin. More troops are sent to the West African territories.***The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. The government of Eesti asks the Grand Senate of the Union to give it some money to help the residents of the City of Tartu and rebuild. Luckily, the Union nations deem it worthy of the surplus, and each gives a small amount of their GDP, and the Bank of Pskov also extends a generous loan to the Estonian government. Residents of Tartu mostly either Flee to the country until their city can be rebuilt, or move to the neigbouring cities of Narva and Pskov. However, due to the size, a considerable amount of people stay, the government promising relief.
      • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
      • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. The Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish
      • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarus and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase

1807

Vesta is discovered by astronomers.

Sikh influence continues to grow in areas of the Suri Sultanate and the Punjab. More and more are clamoring for their own state, and unless action is taken soon, the area could explode into violence.

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and its subjects expand their militaries.
  • Kievan Rus': The Kievan Rus' continue expanding their road network throughout the nation. The profits from grain exports helps fund this expansion. The Kievan Rus' continue to expand their military.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km.
  • Wu: The road network is still building over three territories names like Chu, Yue, Min. Meanwhile, economy gains and expands. Military also expected more arrivals of troops and either deciding for a training. The population is good and admits Government it has more peace with it.
    • Yue: Some industries continue to improve as most of the network they had. Farming is also improving with more foods to be planted.
    • Min: The temples are completed. Now some temples decided to be Buddhists in order.
    • Chu: More likely, fortress is good. But for the economy, markets still doing great resource.
  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach nine million by 1740. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. The Scandinavian aristocracy, one of the richest in the world, enjoys events, tax exemptions, and more authority. The citizens of Scandinavia are outraged. In the meantime, the governors of the Scandinavian colonies and their cohorts are appeased by the Scandinavian monarchy. This display of open coffers on the part of Scandinavia delays independence. Kristoffer IV dies this year. The throne passes to King Nikolos III.
    • Helluland: The military and economy are improved. Helluland expands by 1000 sq km this year. Helluland is responsible for the production of furs in the Scandinavian Empire, generating much profit for the colony.

    • Jansylvania: The military and economy are expanded. Jansylvania is Scandinavia's newest colony, though it has grown rapidly since its establishment. Jansylvania yields large amounts of timber, though it is also a massive center of trade between Scandiavia and Native Americans.
    • Karelia: The military and economy expand. Karelia has been in the Scandinavian realm for centuries now. It is the location of many important fortresses, namely Castle Vyborg. Karelia is a massive source of iron for Scandinavia. Trade with Russia and Pskov flows through Karelia during the summer months.
    • New Gotland: The military and economy expand. New Gotland is one of Scandinavia's older colonies. A coastal colony, New Gotland specializes in shipbuilding and trading along the Borealian East Coast. Timber is also produced in New Gotland.
    • New Zealand: The military and economy expand.
    • Ohijo: The militia of Ohijo is established while the economy is established. The capital of Ohijo is established as Rolvstead after General Jans Rolvson, who led the Scandinavians to victory in the Minor Lake Skirmishes. Rolvstead was originally a trading depot for European traders before the Erie tribes raided it. While parts of the town are relatively intact, other parts have been demolished, re-purposed, or have otherwise decayed.
    • Schleswig: The military and economy are expanded. Schleswig has been a vassal of the Scandinavian Empire for quite some time. All land routes into Scandinavia go through this vassal, meaning Schleswig is one of Scandinavia's wealthiest vassals.
    • Sjösmark: The military and economy are expanded. The colony expands by 5000 sq km this year. Trade with Nehilaw brings gold and people into the colony.
    • Strombek: The military and economy are expanded. Strombek expands by 5000 sq km. Strombek is one of Scandinavia's oldest and most successful colonies. Trade along the St Lawrence River makes it one of the wealthiest as well. Strombek is a source of furs and timber for Scandinavia.
    • Vinland: The military and economy are expanded. Vinland expands by 5000 sq km. The oldest of Scandinavia's colonies, Vinland is one of the most populous colonies along the eastern Borealian coast. Its capital, New Copenhagen, has become the most populous city on the east Borealian coast. Immigrants from Northern Europe flock to Vinland, especially New Copenhagen, in search of a new life.
  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1807, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. CuriaBavariaFlag The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. It is a regional legislature. The Diet orders the German Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement infrastructural, diplomatic, and tax base laws. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I (born 1737) and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Mary's children are: Elisabeth-Anna Germania (born 1770), Franz-Hector (born 1771), Marguerita (born 1774), Johann Agatha (born 1774). Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Germany maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. RBCcoa The RBSC, founded in the late fifteenth century, is finally formalized and given a royal charter by King Leopold II in 1662. The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In political news, the Queen continues to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. By year end, it becomes clear that industrialization is spreading in Germany after a long period of stagnation. In other news, the idea of Romanticisim and a departure of political liberalism catch on in Germany, and in Bavaria in particular. In political news, Queen Mary I continues to serve as the chief executive in all Bavaro-German politics. With Marcel Neierman at her side, and the Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg also aiding her, the Queen continually works on drafting a sturdy, effective parliament. The details of the Hochstag and Perlachtag are further hammered out, with Mary I bent on making sure such instability seen in the 1750s and 1780s will never be seen again. She goes on campaigns around the country trying to gather support for the new legislature, whilst also demonizing Romanticism and painting it as a violent, barbaric belief, and is an enemy to the common Bavarian. Many commoners and gentry accept the Queen's policies, and those groups form the backbone of her urban support. In the countryside she is less popular, and is still somewhat seen as the long dead King Frederick's puppet. Noticing this, Mary tours around the countryside as well, pledging to bring representation and parliamentary democracy to all those in the countryside. She notes while making speeches in several northern villages that the abolition of the title 'Supreme Chancellor' is still very much on her list. Marcel Neierman, now a popular figure, makes the same points in his own meetings in Swabia and Venezia. In religious and cultural news, the Department of Judaic Affairs continues to grow, mostly composed of spies and officials who act to quash anti-Jew sentiments in various municipal governments, which are prone to caving in to popular riots and the like. The Department earns the hate of the most zealous Catholics and is regarded as a corrupt organizations infringing on the rights of Christians. In royal news, Prince Franz-Hector and Elisabeth von Habsburg give birth to a daughter, whom they named Klara-Franzina. In political news, the country is overjoyed when Queen Mary I announces that the reformed Deutsche Diet will be established next year, in 1796. This new diet will be located in Augsburg and will be held in the old Parliamentary Palace. However, now there will be two houses, not one. The lower house will be named the Perlachtag, and will consists of commoners, burghers, and other un-noble men. Furthermore, members of the Perlachtag will be voted into offices, and the voting population consists of all landowning men who pay a $100 (in reichstalers) one-time fee to be able to vote. The upper house, the Hochtag, will function the same way as the old Deutsche did, where members were only members in virtue of their landed, hereditary title. Mary I also declares that the Hochtag has no veto power whatsoever, and cannot block any legislation sent up to them. The same goes for the Perlachtag when it concerns pieces of legislation sent to them by the Hochtag. The only figure with veto power is the head of the Deutsche Diet, known as the Chancellor, who may be elected by popular vote from any of the two houses, (the title of Supreme Chancellor, commonly held by the King or Queen, will be abolished, meaning that the Crown will have no role is legislation), and the reigning monarch. Furthermore, to put a piece of legislation into law, the said piece will require the signature of both the Chancellor and Monarch. Mary I announces these new plans to an excited reception, and the Monarchy grows ever more popular in 1795. Many begin to push for Marcel Neierman to involve himself in the reformed Diet and eventually run for Chancellor. The year goes on quietly other than that, except for a failed harvest in Munich and fears of a famine. In response to this, Mary I orders that the surplus food stocks of Landshut, Regensburg, Augsburg, and Ulm go to Munich in the Winter. In other news, Queen Mary I reconvenes the newly reformed Deutsche Diet to massive enthusiasm and support. In 1798, the first elections occur and 450 men are elected to the Perlachtag. Already, many are prompting Marcel Neierman to launch a campaign for the Chancellery. Marcel Neierman runs for a seat in the Perlachtag and wins it, becoming a parliamentarian. Queen Mary I is happy to know of the new scientific discoveries of infrared rays in Bavaria. In other news, the Deutsche Diet decides to authorizes the first national election for 1806. Neierman wins the election of 1806 and is sworn in as Chancellor of Bavaria-Germany on January 1, 1807. The country is overjoyed at this news. In other news, Queen Mary I turns 70 this year and many celebrate her long, successful reign. More people begin calling her "Mary the Great" as her reign nears 50 years.
    • Ddcoa2Deutsche Diet: The Deutsche Diet, also known as the German Parliament or German Diet, is established by the decree of Queen Frances I in 1736, and is given a charter that year. Gregory Hartingen, elected in 1775, is Präsident. In 1785, confidence votes are held and Hartingen's popularity rests at 33%. The Diet is once more suspended in 1790 following the Augsburg Revolt and subsequent period of instability.
    • Flag of AustriaKingdom of Austria (Constituent State of the CUG): Troops authorized by the King and Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. The Austrian Council is created as an independent privy council for the King. CuriaAustriaFlagThe Curia Austria, led by Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg since 1787, remains the official legislature in Austria. The next Minister-Governor elections are set for 1797. The Curia  is popular in Vienna and surrounding areas. Parliamentarians usually pass laws concerning taxes, diplomacy, and infrastructure. Tomas Bergman is successfully re-elected as Minister-Governor in 1792.
    • Flag of Most Serene Republic of VeniceKingdom of Venezia (Constituent State of the CUG): Troops authorized by the Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. In following the example of her predecessors, Queen Mary I initiates the Venetian Restoration, which aims to improve the general infrastructure of the country after the great destruction of the previous war. Poorhouses are established all around the country, particularly in Venice and Tyrol. Furthermore, the streets are cleaned up of wartime debris and rubble. In 1770, Venezia is released from Austrian rule and is established as a constituent state int the CUG. Following protests for a regional legislature, the Deutsche Diet complies and forms the Curia Venexia. The Curia is responsible for overseeing the legal, economi and political goings on of all those in Venezia.
    • Flagge Preußen - Provinz BrandenburgDuchy of Brandenburg (Constituent State of the CUG): Troops authorized by Grand Duke George I (born 1758) continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders.

Several cogs are constructed, and plans are drafted to construct many larger ships. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port.
    • NewBavariaFlagNew Bavaria (Colony of the CUG): The colony of Nei Baiern continues to expand in population. Katharinas-Hafen, Franznacken, Bayreuth, Nei Regens, and Regenholz all expand by the end of the year. Houses and shops in each settlement continue being built. Jülichsberg and Wittlesberg both expand. Nei Baiern expands 2000 km. The militias and shops are developed. A small logging and fishing town is founded north of Wilhelmsbaum island, on the mainland. The settlement, mainly populated by Saxons, comes to be called Regenholz. 
    • NewSwabiaFlagNew Swabia (Colony of the CUG): The colony of Neu Schwaben is established in 1750. The colony is situated in the humid, tropical regions of south-central Borealia, and is mostly composed of Spanish-speaking Hispanics, as well as Aztecan and Mayan settlers. In Europe, Bavarians are encouraged to settle in Nei Schwaben.
    • PearlRiverFlagPearl River (Colony of the CUG): The outpost of Perlefluss is established. A capital is expected to be constructed over the next few years. The capital of Pearl River is named Pearl River, after the colony itself.
  • Croatian Archvoivodeship (Hrvatsko Nadvojvodstvo): Military turn. Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of the Archvoivodeship. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan and also Britannic expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. As the war for Hungary ends, some Croats and Hungarians are still unsatisfied as not all was achieved since the spoils of war had to be shared with the Romans. With the end of the war against Hispania, Croatia attempts to rebuild its economy using the control over Hercules' Pillars as a support. Trade routes are  strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. The Brothers of the Raven continue spreading their influence in Croatia. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. The navy, under command of the Bajan and the First Admiral is developed due to the purchase of Britannic ships which are inspected and introduced into the Royal War Navy of Croatia or HBRM (Hrvatska Bajanska Ratna Mornarica). Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. Britannic assistance aids with the naval reform. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. The administrative reform continues.
    • Županija Dahomey: The natural resources are quickly put to use, such as coconuts, cotton both refined and raw as well as the gold. Finally, the wood industry prospers as materials are needed for new ships that would help keep the connection between Croatia and Dahomey strong.
    • Isles of the Archvoivodeship (Otoci Nadvojvodstva): The infrastructure is built up.
    • Županija of Hercules Pillars' (Županija Herkulovih Stupova): The županija's pivotal position as a trade nod creates an a sufficite allowing for the economy to expand.
    • Priština Voivodeship (Prištinsko Vojvodstvo): Due to the focus on the regional denominations of the nation, the Serbian national sense slowly suffers.
    • Budva Voivodeship (Budvansko Vojvodstvo): Budva develops and Croatization commences, causing some issues at first.
  • BoraliaFlagCommonwealth of Borealia: Both the military and economy improve. As Peter Lasuen was earlier voted out of office, Josef de Arrillaga has been elected to replace him. An industrial revolution takes off in the land. Recent theories on economics and agriculture have led to the expansion of businesses at an exponential rate, including various forms of manufacturing, mining, and printing. Machines using steam power are also popular, as the first factories appear. Some of these businesses are also internationally based, buying and selling to the neighboring colonies of France, Britain, and Scandinavia, as well as the sovereign states of Reme, Aragon, Algonquia and Germany. The most productive of these businesses is the buffalo industry, monopolized by a few companies based in Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City). The professional army and cavalry are continually trained, while the forts on both borders are expanded and new artillery is manufactured. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in both the forests and plains, and these become the effective weaponry for local village militias. Caravels and frigates fitted with steam engines are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands across the Pacific. The University of New Vienna continues to produce new intellectuals and engineers. Telegraphs are commonly used by public and private buildings across the state. Various publication companies for newspapers, pamphlets, and books circulate throughout the nation and are distributed to their neighbors as well. The most prolific of these publications propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and New Orleans. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion on both Newburg Island (OTL Graham Island) and Franz-Hector Island (OTL Prince of Wales Island). As military and diplomatic support is sent to Reme, the curia also offers to mass manufacture raw materials from them and sell bison products.A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. The commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, particularly in the plains, in the hopes of annexing some of the territory later. Borealia declares war on Britannia, seeing that they have violated the New Munich declaration. The Curia sends 10,000 men to Arcadia led by the intrepid General William Newburg the Younger. Arcadia is likewise offered an agreement of mutual defense.
  • Tartary: The economy and military of Tartary are developed this year. Farming is the largest industry throughout the nation. The nation continues to develop cities. The population of Tartary continues to become larger. Tartary looks to establish an alliance with Scandinavia. We continue to expand 1000 px northeast. The Emperor position is re-established, and Alexis I becomes the Emperor.
    • Great Perm: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Azov: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bukhara: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bajkal: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Khiva: We build up our military and economy.
    • Kingdom of Parthia: We build up our military and economy.
  • Duchy of Oldenburg: The treasury allocates a significant amount of money to the navy this year, with the goal being to have every ship copper-plated by 1810. The dockyards and copper smelters work at a feverish pace, and by the end of the year a number of ships have been plated. The army too is improved, especially the units in the colonies. Neu Juist expands into the remaining blank space. 
  • Roman Empire: The Empire continues to recover from the devastating war that afflicted the nation in recent years, and efforts are made to heal the nation as best as possible. The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained. Trade routes are re-established in order to help the economy recover and new tax laws and reforms are put into place to help the economy recover and grow. The lose of the Borealian provinces hurts the economy significantly, and as such the Roman Empire looks to other markets to replace the goods lost by the loss of the colonies there. The government continues to move along with its new reforms, and the country is preparing for its first elections that will take place in 1800 and will decide the new face of the Senate and Imperial government.
    • Luwitria (Or something like that): The colony was relatively unaffected by the war, and as such life more or less continued on normally, although contact with the Empire was much less often than before. As such, the colony developed a sense of nationalism and independence in very much the same way that the other archonates did during the war. Luckily, the government in Constantinople realizes this and offers them the same representation rights that the archonates are now given in the Imperial Senate. This does much to ease any of the potential political issues at the present time. 
    • Italy: Italy begins to recover from the war, and the local military and economy continues to grow and stabilize in the aftermath. The economy is largely built up with help from the central government, as the entire economy is in shambles and the central government is doing its best to help the entire Empire grow and interconnect better through economics. 
  • In Aragon the nation continues to prosper as a center of the arts and learning. The construction of new buildings, roads and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Aragon also becomes a place where artists and intellectual minds meet and do things. It is cool. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. Stronger cements are produced, whatever that means, leading to the construction of some taller buildings, especially in the major cities such as Zaragoza and Valencia. In Zaragoza, Roque Maria Merlo demonstrates the first steam powered locomotive hauled train. We send diplomats, military experts, and other personnel to help the new nation of Borealia. All white (Spanish/Catalan/Basque) men above the age of 20 are given the right to vote in Aragon, as opposed to the previous laws, where only white landowners could vote. Also, the government decides to send aid to the rebels in Arcadia, including military advisors, a number of soldiers, and weapons. With the advent of steam power, factories begin to be built and stuff. Textile mills, cloth factories, and other places begin to harness steam power to do more thing faster, which creates more jobs that people move to cities to get. Industrialization is gaining speed. The construction of ships and weaponry continues. A mutual defense pact is offered to Lombardy.
  • Grand Duchy of Moscow: This turn in Moscow and all vassals is officially dedicated to economicor military. We begin recovering from recent wars and rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and defenses. Surprised by the sudden betrayal we faced by our neighbors, we put aside resources for new fortifications and an updated military. Ship production continues, as does trade along our many trade routes. The settlement at St Patriksburg is expanded, with a large Kremlin and port being constructed.
  • Lombardy: We continue rebuilding the nation after the recent war with Spain. The military is reformed from the foundation of units formed during the war, and trained to adequately defend the nation. This turn is officially dedicated to economy or military. We continue influencing Westphalia. Our alliance is renewed, and begin interests in reuniting our union. We accept a defensive pact from Aragon.
  • Rhineland: This turn is dedicated to military and economic expansion. We begin training a military based on the militias established to fight the nation of France. We work closely with Dutch and Westphalian specialists to properly train our armed forces. We also begin industrializing across our nation, incorporating the latest technological innovations from the Lowlands and Germany, paired with techniques learned from our time under France. We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.

  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is expanded. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the amount of rebellions in the future. The Pskovian industrial complex begins to be more and more built up, with much more mechanization as technology advances. An inquisitive physicist, Vecheslav Drobovitskiy invents the Twin-piston steam engine, and sells his invention to the highest bidder. A new wave of industry is about to enter the nation of Pskov. As improvements in many fields of knowledge begin to rise, Pskov is seen more and more as the heart of Russian civilization. To legitimize its position even further, after the death of Partiarch Tikhon this year, a new one, Patriarch Adrian, at this point being the Bishop of Pskov, is elected the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and swiftly after his election choses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. The PIC consolidates its control over its newly acquired West African territories, allowing certain magistrates to retain their positions so long as they learn either Russian or Latvian (but highly encouraged to learn both). The Diamonds found there are very profitable indeed. Attepmts to bring prussi back into the UK begin. More troops are sent to the West African territories.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. The government of Eesti asks the Grand Senate of the Union to give it some money to help the residents of the City of Tartu and rebuild. Luckily, the Union nations deem it worthy of the surplus, and each gives a small amount of their GDP, and the Bank of Pskov also extends a generous loan to the Estonian government. Residents of Tartu mostly either Flee to the country until their city can be rebuilt, or move to the neigbouring cities of Narva and Pskov. However, due to the size, a considerable amount of people stay, the government promising relief.
    • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. The Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish
    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarus and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase
  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and its subjects expand their economies. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands by 750 px. Johan Schmitzs Poseidon, a co-operative project with the Hamburgian Navy to see if the steamship design is viable for weaponry, is completed after two years of construction. Initial tests show promise, but more are still planned. Secret discussions with the Prussian nobles continue, and a sense of urgency takes on as Pskov has turns its sights back to the nation. At the end of the third year of talks it seems a consensus is reached as to the course of action. Vietnam and Cambodia, after years of expanding merchant and political influence, are offered protectorate status. (Mod response, please)
  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach nine million by 1740. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. The Scandinavian aristocracy, one of the richest in the world, enjoys events, tax exemptions, and more authority. The citizens of Scandinavia are outraged. In the meantime, the governors of the Scandinavian colonies and their cohorts are appeased by the Scandinavian monarchy. This display of open coffers on the part of Scandinavia delays independence.

While parts of the town are relatively intact, other parts have been demolished, re-purposed, or have otherwise decayed.
    • Schleswig: The military and economy are expanded. Schleswig has been a vassal of the Scandinavian Empire for quite some time. All land routes into Scandinavia go through this vassal, meaning Schleswig is one of Scandinavia's wealthiest vassals.

We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.
  • Andea: With the growing call for democracy, the Inca Empire sees its first major reform since the 1400s. A new, constitutional monarchy is formed in the nation, consisting of the Inca Proper for now. Military, navy and economy improve. Population stands and 18 million, and continues growing. The Buenas Noches Doctrine is overturned, replaced with the Democratic Constitution of Buenas Noches. This new constitution allows for any male citizen born in Andea or the Andean Union to vote for the Prime Minister. With the new government, we seek to confirm relations with France, and Rome. The nation sees the first use of steam power.  with their acceptance in Osea, further Spaniards leave Andea, totaling about 5000 from Andea proper. In order to better support our ally Osea, we withdraw our alliances with Buenos Aires and Uruguay and declare them illegitimate nations. The capital is relocated to Buenas Noches, which stands at 20,000 people. Andeans begin to project the idea that Natives of Hesperia are threatened with by European cultures and while we can trade and work with them, they must remain separate.
    • Union of Upper Peru: Chimor and Collaquyimbaya, both prosperous under the Inca, have merged into one nation under the new nation Andea.

The Andean Government also projects the idea that the only way to stop assimilation from occurring is for the Mapuche and Andeans to remain united.
  • Ayutthaya: The Ruler's primary goal is to continue developing strong ports and modernise our navy. Technology used from Dutch is used to make stronger and more effective ships.

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

  • In Aragon the nation continues to prosper as a center of the arts and learning. The construction of new buildings, roads and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Aragon also becomes a place where artists and intellectual minds meet and do things. It is cool. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. Stronger cements are produced, whatever that means, leading to the construction of some taller buildings, especially in the major cities such as Zaragoza and Valencia. In Zaragoza, Roque Maria Merlo demonstrates the first steam powered locomotive hauled train. We send diplomats, military experts, and other personnel to help the new nation of Borealia. All white (Spanish/Catalan/Basque) men above the age of 20 are given the right to vote in Aragon, as opposed to the previous laws, where only white landowners could vote. Also, the government decides to send aid to the rebels in Arcadia, including military advisors, a number of soldiers, and weapons. With the advent of steam power, factories begin to be built and stuff. Textile mills, cloth factories, and other places begin to harness steam power to do more thing faster, which creates more jobs that people move to cities to get. Industrialization is gaining speed. The construction of ships and weaponry continues. A mutual defense pact is offered to Lombardy.
  • Tartary: The economy and military of Tartary are developed this year. Farming is the largest industry throughout the nation. The nation continues to develop cities.

  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1808, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. CuriaBavariaFlag The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. It is a regional legislature. The Diet orders the German Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement infrastructural, diplomatic, and tax base laws. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I (born 1737) and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Mary's children are: Elisabeth-Anna Germania (born 1770), Franz-Hector (born 1771), Marguerita (born 1774), Johann Agatha (born 1774). Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Germany maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. RBCcoa The RBSC, founded in the late fifteenth century, is finally formalized and given a royal charter by King Leopold II in 1662. The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In political news, the Queen continues to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. By year end, it becomes clear that industrialization is spreading in Germany after a long period of stagnation. In other news, the idea of Romanticisim and a departure of political liberalism catch on in Germany, and in Bavaria in particular. In political news, Queen Mary I continues to serve as the chief executive in all Bavaro-German politics. With Marcel Neierman at her side, and the Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg also aiding her, the Queen continually works on drafting a sturdy, effective parliament. The details of the Hochstag and Perlachtag are further hammered out, with Mary I bent on making sure such instability seen in the 1750s and 1780s will never be seen again. She goes on campaigns around the country trying to gather support for the new legislature, whilst also demonizing Romanticism and painting it as a violent, barbaric belief, and is an enemy to the common Bavarian. Many commoners and gentry accept the Queen's policies, and those groups form the backbone of her urban support. In the countryside she is less popular, and is still somewhat seen as the long dead King Frederick's puppet. Noticing this, Mary tours around the countryside as well, pledging to bring representation and parliamentary democracy to all those in the countryside. She notes while making speeches in several northern villages that the abolition of the title 'Supreme Chancellor' is still very much on her list. Marcel Neierman, now a popular figure, makes the same points in his own meetings in Swabia and Venezia. In religious and cultural news, the Department of Judaic Affairs continues to grow, mostly composed of spies and officials who act to quash anti-Jew sentiments in various municipal governments, which are prone to caving in to popular riots and the like. The Department earns the hate of the most zealous Catholics and is regarded as a corrupt organizations infringing on the rights of Christians. In royal news, Prince Franz-Hector and Elisabeth von Habsburg give birth to a daughter, whom they named Klara-Franzina. In political news, the country is overjoyed when Queen Mary I announces that the reformed Deutsche Diet will be established next year, in 1796. This new diet will be located in Augsburg and will be held in the old Parliamentary Palace. However, now there will be two houses, not one. The lower house will be named the Perlachtag, and will consists of commoners, burghers, and other un-noble men. Furthermore, members of the Perlachtag will be voted into offices, and the voting population consists of all landowning men who pay a $100 (in reichstalers) one-time fee to be able to vote. The upper house, the Hochtag, will function the same way as the old Deutsche did, where members were only members in virtue of their landed, hereditary title. Mary I also declares that the Hochtag has no veto power whatsoever, and cannot block any legislation sent up to them. The same goes for the Perlachtag when it concerns pieces of legislation sent to them by the Hochtag. The only figure with veto power is the head of the Deutsche Diet, known as the Chancellor, who may be elected by popular vote from any of the two houses, (the title of Supreme Chancellor, commonly held by the King or Queen, will be abolished, meaning that the Crown will have no role is legislation), and the reigning monarch. Furthermore, to put a piece of legislation into law, the said piece will require the signature of both the Chancellor and Monarch. Mary I announces these new plans to an excited reception, and the Monarchy grows ever more popular in 1795. Many begin to push for Marcel Neierman to involve himself in the reformed Diet and eventually run for Chancellor. The year goes on quietly other than that, except for a failed harvest in Munich and fears of a famine. In response to this, Mary I orders that the surplus food stocks of Landshut, Regensburg, Augsburg, and Ulm go to Munich in the Winter. In other news, Queen Mary I reconvenes the newly reformed Deutsche Diet to massive enthusiasm and support. In 1798, the first elections occur and 450 men are elected to the Perlachtag. Already, many are prompting Marcel Neierman to launch a campaign for the Chancellery. Marcel Neierman runs for a seat in the Perlachtag and wins it, becoming a parliamentarian. Queen Mary I is happy to know of the new scientific discoveries of infrared rays in Bavaria. In other news, the Deutsche Diet decides to authorizes the first national election for 1806. Neierman wins the election of 1806 and is sworn in as Chancellor of Bavaria-Germany on January 1, 1807. The country is overjoyed at this news. In other news, Queen Mary I turns 70 this year and many celebrate her long, successful reign. More people begin calling her "Mary the Great" as her reign nears 50 years.
    • Ddcoa2Deutsche Diet: The Deutsche Diet, also known as the German Parliament or German Diet, is established by the decree of Queen Frances I in 1736, and is given a charter that year. Gregory Hartingen, elected in 1775, is Präsident. In 1785, confidence votes are held and Hartingen's popularity rests at 33%.

    • Flagge der Hansestadt LübeckCity of Lübeck (Constituent City of the CUG): Troops authorized by the King and Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. The port of Lübeck is expanded and several ships are constructed.
    • Flag of BremenBremen Port  (Constituent Territory of the CUG): Troops authorized by the King and Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. Several cogs are constructed, and plans are drafted to construct many larger ships. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port.
    • NewBavariaFlagNew Bavaria (Colony of the CUG): The colony of Nei Baiern continues to expand in population. Katharinas-Hafen, Franznacken, Bayreuth, Nei Regens, and Regenholz all expand by the end of the year. Houses and shops in each settlement continue being built. Jülichsberg and Wittlesberg both expand. Nei Baiern expands 2000 km. The militias and shops are developed. A small logging and fishing town is founded north of Wilhelmsbaum island, on the mainland. The settlement, mainly populated by Saxons, comes to be called Regenholz. 
    • NewSwabiaFlagNew Swabia (Colony of the CUG): The colony of Neu Schwaben is established in 1750. The colony is situated in the humid, tropical regions of south-central Borealia, and is mostly composed of Spanish-speaking Hispanics, as well as Aztecan and Mayan settlers. In Europe, Bavarians are encouraged to settle in Nei Schwaben.
    • PearlRiverFlagPearl River (Colony of the CUG): The outpost of Perlefluss is established. A capital is expected to be constructed over the next few years. The capital of Pearl River is named Pearl River, after the colony itself.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire continues to recover from the devastating war that afflicted the nation in recent years, and efforts are made to heal the nation as best as possible. The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained. Trade routes are re-established in order to help the economy recover and new tax laws and reforms are put into place to help the economy recover and grow. The lose of the Borealian provinces hurts the economy significantly, and as such the Roman Empire looks to other markets to replace the goods lost by the loss of the colonies there. The government continues to move along with its new reforms, and the country is preparing for its first elections that will take place in 1800 and will decide the new face of the Senate and Imperial government. After considerable preparation, Roman armies invade the Damascan sultanate, hopefully with Armenian assistance. (Mod response)
    • Luwitria (Or something like that): The colony was relatively unaffected by the war, and as such life more or less continued on normally, although contact with the Empire was much less often than before. As such, the colony developed a sense of nationalism and independence in very much the same way that the other archonates did during the war. Luckily, the government in Constantinople realizes this and offers them the same representation rights that the archonates are now given in the Imperial Senate. This does much to ease any of the potential political issues at the present time. 
    • Italy: Italy begins to recover from the war, and the local military and economy continues to grow and stabilize in the aftermath. The economy is largely built up with help from the central government, as the entire economy is in shambles and the central government is doing its best to help the entire Empire grow and interconnect better through economics. 
    • Armenia accepts and joins Rome against Damascus.
  • BoraliaFlagCommonwealth of Borealia: Both the military and economy improve. The continual industrial revolution has led to an increasing birth rate. Recent theories on economics and agriculture have led to the expansion of businesses at an exponential rate, including various forms of manufacturing, mining, and printing. Machines using steam power are also popular, as the first factories appear. Some of these businesses are also internationally based, buying and selling to the neighboring colonies of France, Britain, and Scandinavia, as well as the sovereign states of Reme, Aragon, Algonquia and Germany. The most productive of these businesses is the buffalo industry, monopolized by a few companies based in Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City). The professional army and cavalry are continually trained, while the forts on both borders are expanded and new artillery is manufactured. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in both the forests and plains, and these become the effective weaponry for local village militias. Caravels and frigates fitted with steam engines are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands across the Pacific. The University of New Vienna continues to produce new intellectuals and engineers. Telegraphs are commonly used by public and private buildings across the state. Various publication companies for newspapers, pamphlets, and books circulate throughout the nation and are distributed to their neighbors as well. The most prolific of these publications propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and New Orleans. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion on both Newburg Island (OTL Graham Island) and Franz-Hector Island (OTL Prince of Wales Island). As military and diplomatic support is sent to Reme, the curia also offers to mass manufacture raw materials from them and sell bison products. A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. Arcadia, now independent from the Britons, is likewise offered an agreement of mutual defense. In the plains, the commonwealth offers to annex parts of the French Borealia, see as it is the best way of ensuring the rights of Borealians there.

1809

The Borealianist philosophy spreads to Hesperia, where it attempts to explain the behaviour of Hesperian-born peoples.

Nepali forces manage to secure their capital and most of their lands in the face of hostility by Tibet, Delhi, or other parties. Burma more or less manages to do the same.

Russian forces begin to consolidate under a charismatic new leader.

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg expands its infrastructure, and its subjects expand their militaries. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands by 750 px. This year, the plan orchestrated between Hamburg and the Prussian nobles goes into effect. High-level nobles begin more and more openly expressing displeasure with the lackluster von Hessen rule, while pro-Hamburg propaganda begins to be circulated (puppet establishment Turn One of Five). Johan Schmitzs' Poseidon completes the first stage of testing, and the results show promise. A class of steam powered, side wheel frigates begins to be designed, with the first keel-laying scheduled for next year. Cambodia and Vietnam, after years of expanding merchant and political influence in the region, are offered protectorate status (mod response, please).
  • Vietnam, due to its history as a protectorate, declines, while Cambodia accepts.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist, Neo-Confucian and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The colony of Haejagang (해자강) expands by 500 sq km. Monarch Myeonghye dies this year and is succeeded by Gyeonseong who becomes the new Monarch of Korea.
  • Scandinavian Empire: The economy and military of Scandinavia improves this year. Import/export businesses in Denmark, Sweden and Norway bring in a considerable amount of income. Scandinavia's chief exports include iron, wood, and other construction materiel, a commodity that is vastly growing in necessity as urbanization increases throughout Europe. Militaries in Europe purchase Scandinavian iron for ships and weapons. The Scandinavian colonies are a source of even more lumber. Resources such as pelts bring in massive amounts of profit for Scandinavia, both due to intranational trading and international trading. Scandinavia exports resources such as textiles, dyes and foodstuffs from its trading partners. Interest in coffee plants rises among nobles as the drink becomes more popular among the population of Scandinvia, especially in the upper class and in the aristocracy. Though the bean is expensive to Scandinavia, coffee sales spike. Indonesian powers are offered exclusive trade deals for coffee in exchange for discounted, high-quality wood and iron. Scandinavia retains its alliances with Pskov, the Roman Empire, Britannia, the Nehilaw and many other nations. These alliances are celebrated in the Scandinavian courts. The ports in Iceland are expanded to accommodate more ships. Education in Scandinavia continues to improve. The literacy rate is steadily increasing as public schools are built throughout the nation. The population of Scandinavia continues to explode as well. Urbanization, more food supplies, better census data, and other factors are all leading to a spike in population. Scandinavia's population is expected to reach nine million by 1740. While this increase in population does come with benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Homelessness in urban areas and overcrowding is becoming a massive problem, especially in Copenhagen. To accommodate, people are encouraged to travel to the New World. In political news, the House of Bjelbo-Griffins continues to remain in charge of Scandinavia. The Riksdag is dominated by this royal house. The Scandinavian aristocracy, one of the richest in the world, enjoys events, tax exemptions, and more authority. The citizens of Scandinavia are outraged. In the meantime, the governors of the Scandinavian colonies and their cohorts are appeased by the Scandinavian monarchy. This display of open coffers on the part of Scandinavia delays independence. The king dies and the throne passes to King Gustav I. Seeing the Nehilaw in disorder, Scandinavia believes that another state will attempt to take advantage of the precarious situation in the area. They invade, setting up seige weapons and mobilizing their military.
    • Helluland: The military and economy are improved. Helluland expands by 5000 sq km this year. Helluland is responsible for the production of furs in the Scandinavian Empire, generating much profit for the colony.
    • Hondeklip: The military of this African colony expands. In the meantime, Hondeklip expands by 1000 sq km.
    • Huronsmark: The military and economy are improved. Huronsmark expands by 1000 sq km this year. Huronsmark is responsible for the production of furs and timber in the Scandinavian Empire, generating much profit for the colony.
    • Iceland: The military and economy are improved. Iceland is an important port for northern Europeans. Due to the large amounts of trade flowing into Icelandic ports, the population of Iceland increases. Iceland begins to expand its outpost on Greenland by 10,000 sq km this year.
    • Jansylvania: The military and economy are expanded. Jansylvania is Scandinavia's newest colony, though it has grown rapidly since its establishment. Jansylvania yields large amounts of timber, though it is also a massive center of trade between Scandiavia and Native Americans.
    • Karelia: The military and economy expand. Karelia has been in the Scandinavian realm for centuries now. It is the location of many important fortresses, namely Castle Vyborg. Karelia is a massive source of iron for Scandinavia. Trade with Russia and Pskov flows through Karelia during the summer months.
    • New Gotland: The military and economy expand. New Gotland is one of Scandinavia's older colonies. A coastal colony, New Gotland specializes in shipbuilding and trading along the Borealian East Coast. Timber is also produced in New Gotland.
    • New Zealand: The military and economy expand.
    • Ohijo: The militia of Ohijo is established while the economy is established. The capital of Ohijo is established as Rolvstead after General Jans Rolvson, who led the Scandinavians to victory in the Minor Lake Skirmishes. Rolvstead was originally a trading depot for European traders before the Erie tribes raided it. While parts of the town are relatively intact, other parts have been demolished, re-purposed, or have otherwise decayed.
    • Schleswig: The military and economy are expanded. Schleswig has been a vassal of the Scandinavian Empire for quite some time. All land routes into Scandinavia go through this vassal, meaning Schleswig is one of Scandinavia's wealthiest vassals.
    • Sjösmark: The military and economy are expanded. The colony expands by 5000 sq km this year. Trade with Nehilaw brings gold and people into the colony.
    • Strombek: The military and economy are expanded. Strombek expands by 5000 sq km. Strombek is one of Scandinavia's oldest and most successful colonies. Trade along the St Lawrence River makes it one of the wealthiest as well. Strombek is a source of furs and timber for Scandinavia.
    • Vinland: The military and economy are expanded. Vinland expands by 5000 sq km. The oldest of Scandinavia's colonies, Vinland is one of the most populous colonies along the eastern Borealian coast. Its capital, New Copenhagen, has become the most populous city on the east Borealian coast. Immigrants from Northern Europe flock to Vinland, especially New Copenhagen, in search of a new life.
  • Empire of Lanka: The government mostly focuses on economic expansion, infrastructural expansion, and westernization. Dutch architecture and infrastructure continue to influence Lanka making the empire more westernized. The army continues to be equipped with mostly up-to-date Dutch/Western muskets and rifles. The army also has many cannons received from the Dutch. The Lankan army continues to be trained in Dutch tactics and warfare. The troop count also continues to increase. The most recent census taken in 1739 accounts for 1,059,604 Lankan citizens. Trade posts continue to be built throughout the empire. Administration is successfully moved to Waardige as well as many nobles owning plantations and houses in and around the city. The new city increases Lanka's power in Asia, making Lanka a major trade, technological, and industrial center. The Waardige canals fit a major population into the capital, increasing the number of traders at the port. The Kust Weg continues to be used; mostly for military reasons. Dutch reformist continues to be sampled by a small percentage of the population with some converting, while others practice parts of both. Ranjit's previous education reform continues to be enforced. With new income from Madras, Senerat continues to update the navy with warships from the Dutch. Due to the collapse of Lanka's major ally, Urdustan, Senerat I offers refuge to Urdustani noble families and invite them to come to Lanka. Senerat I views the new countries as pretender states, and does not attempt to establish any relations with them. He even embargoes some of them. There continue to be small incidences and disputes erupting throughout the empire between religious and cultural minorities. Relations continue to be improved with the nations of Ayutthaya and the Suri Empire. The new law code of Lanka is successfully enforced. Madras continues to be held and incorporated by Lanka, but due to the weary relations between the new states, more of the Lankan army is stationed in the city. Senerat's new provincial tax system seems to be somewhat successful by increasing tax income, but it angers and increases inequality between the poor and cultural minorities (like the Tamil). The Council of the Emperor (early parliament) seems to be somewhat ineffective as it does not have many official powers over the king. The training program continues to replicate great scholars and thinkers in Lanka. The main focuses of the University continue to be Astronomy, Mathematics, and Chemistry. Lanka continues to industrialize. Steam power and water wheels begin to be heavily used in the nation. New chemicals continue to be discovered from plants and other sources on the island, with some of them being useful. These chemicals are produced in large amounts. Understanding of anatomy improves as does the understanding of medicine in Lanka. Many people begin moving to the new capital city and other major cities in Lanka (urbanisation). Writing increases in Lanka due to new technology in paper mills. The cloth market in Lanka heavily increases because of the use of machines and steam power. Although cultural and relgious differences continue to be a minor issue, minorities begin to push more for absolute equality for all.
    • TO MODS (PLEASE RESPOND): I was wondering if the Industrial map will/is planned on being updated. I've asked mods about my situation (a protectorate for one-hundred ninety-nine years), and they have said that I am mostly modernized, but not completely up-to-date with Europe. Due to being a protectorate and modernization efforts, I believe that I should have some technologic and industrial expanses over other larger and less European Asian nations. So I am asking mod permission for Lanka to maybe be ugraded to Yellow (more plausible) or orange industrialization.
  • In Aragon the nation continues to prosper as a center of the arts and learning. The construction of new buildings, roads and other infrastructure continues. Aragonese merchants and emissaries continue sail across the Mediterranean to expand the reach of Aragon in terms of wealth and diplomatic connections. Aragon also becomes a place where artists and intellectual minds meet and do things. It is cool. Due to the regrowth of the economy, new jobs created in the three major cities lead to more people moving to the cities. Stronger cements are produced, whatever that means, leading to the construction of some taller buildings, especially in the major cities such as Zaragoza and Valencia. In Zaragoza, Roque Maria Merlo demonstrates the first steam powered locomotive hauled train. We send diplomats, military experts, and other personnel to help the new nation of Borealia. All white (Spanish/Catalan/Basque) men above the age of 20 are given the right to vote in Aragon, as opposed to the previous laws, where only white landowners could vote. Also, the government decides to send aid to the rebels in Arcadia, including military advisors, a number of soldiers, and weapons. With the advent of steam power, factories begin to be built and stuff. Textile mills, cloth factories, and other places begin to harness steam power to do more thing faster, which creates more jobs that people move to cities to get. Industrialization is gaining speed. The construction of ships and weaponry continues. A mutual defense pact is offered to Lombardy.
  • Wu: The navy stands about 17 ships in total at the docks. The road network is still planning more roads ahead of the territories.
    • Yue: While the fortress is in progress, the troops of Yue looks to arrive in Wu's army for a total of training and plans.
    • Min: Workers gain up building temples, but several buldings building ahead.
    • Chu: Some different works on fortress will be named soon.
  • Arcadia: The Dominion of Arcadia (the former colonies of Arcadia and New Cambridgeshire) After months od deliberation between the delegates of the National Congress, a new name and government plan has been ratified. The Federal Republic of Arcadia is born. The national government is a bicameral legislator with the People's House as the lower house, based on population and an upper house called the Senate, where each state sends an equal amount of delegates (2). The nation also outlaws the use of native labour and forms the Borelian Native Caucus, a house separate from the main government designed to give equal representation from the natives. Arcadia accepts the Commonwealth's defense alliance. Arcadia also begins to purchase steam engines from the Scandinavians and is attempting to build itself an economy no longer dependent on Europe. National elections will be held for the first time on Jan, 1, 1810. The war of Independence seems to rest firmly in favor of Arcadia, after the Britons stopped sending reinforcments and the seizure of high value targets along the coast. Arcadia accepts Aragon's offer and wishes many years of peace. The Department of the Army and Navy is officially formed. Arcadia seeks knowledgeable and skilled military minds to help shape the military into a formidable defense force. Many Britannic ships docked in Arcadia's harbors at the start of the war are rebranded and flown Arcadian national colors. One ship, called the FAS Resolution sees many victories on the high seas, so much so its crew have taken to calling it "old ironsides."
  • Duchy of Oldenburg: The copper-plating of naval ships' hulls continues at a good pace and without too many delays. The Neu Norderney and Thabascho Councils are given a fixed percentage of Oldenburger tax revenues from the Landtag. 
  • Tartary: The economy and military of Tartary are developed this year. Farming is the largest industry throughout the nation. The nation continues to develop cities. The population of Tartary continues to become larger. Tartary looks to establish an alliance with Scandinavia. We continue to expand 1000 px northeast. The Emperor position is re-established, and Alexis I becomes the Emperor.
    • Great Perm: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Azov: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bukhara: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Bajkal: We build up our military and economy.
    • Khanate of Khiva: We build up our military and economy.
    • Kingdom of Parthia: We build up our military and economy.
  • Croatian Archvoivodeship (Hrvatsko Nadvojvodstvo): Military turn. Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of the Archvoivodeship. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan and also Britannic expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. As the war for Hungary ends, some Croats and Hungarians are still unsatisfied as not all was achieved since the spoils of war had to be shared with the Romans. With the end of the war against Hispania, Croatia attempts to rebuild its economy using the control over Hercules' Pillars as a support. Trade routes are  strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. The Brothers of the Raven continue spreading their influence in Croatia. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. The navy, under command of the Bajan and the First Admiral is developed due to the purchase of Britannic ships which are inspected and introduced into the Royal War Navy of Croatia or HBRM (Hrvatska Bajanska Ratna Mornarica). Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. Britannic assistance aids with the naval reform. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. The administrative reform continues.
    • Županija Dahomey: The natural resources are quickly put to use, such as coconuts, cotton both refined and raw as well as the gold. Finally, the wood industry prospers as materials are needed for new ships that would help keep the connection between Croatia and Dahomey strong.
    • Isles of the Archvoivodeship (Otoci Nadvojvodstva): The infrastructure is built up.
    • Županija of Hercules Pillars' (Županija Herkulovih Stupova): The županija's pivotal position as a trade nod creates an a sufficite allowing for the economy to expand.
    • Priština Voivodeship (Prištinsko Vojvodstvo): Due to the focus on the regional denominations of the nation, the Serbian national sense slowly suffers.
    • Budva Voivodeship (Budvansko Vojvodstvo): Budva develops and Croatization commences, causing some issues at first.
  • Roman Empire: The Empire continues to recover from the devastating war that afflicted the nation in recent years, and efforts are made to heal the nation as best as possible. The military is crucial for maintaining the order that is currently in place, and the military continues to train and improve itself to ensure that the law of the land is upheld and the peace is maintained. Trade routes are re-established in order to help the economy recover and new tax laws and reforms are put into place to help the economy recover and grow. The loss of the Borealian provinces hurts the economy significantly, and as such the Roman Empire looks to other markets to replace the goods lost by the loss of the colonies there. The government continues to move along with its new reforms, and the country is preparing for its first elections that will take place in 1800 and will decide the new face of the Senate and Imperial government.

  • BaiernFlag8Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1808, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. CuriaBavariaFlag The Curia Bavaria, also known as the Bavarian Parliament or Bavarian Diet, continue to operate in the Parliamentary Palace in Landshut. It is a regional legislature. The Diet orders the German Army to be outfitted in modern uniform and to hold modern weaponry. In political news, the Curia Bavaria continue to implement infrastructural, diplomatic, and tax base laws. In Munich, Queen Isabell University remains a staple of education in Bavaria. Queen Mary I (born 1737) and her council continue to allow the training of new troops. Mary's children are: Elisabeth-Anna Germania (born 1770), Franz-Hector (born 1771), Marguerita (born 1774), Johann Agatha (born 1774). Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port. Modern weaponry make its introduction into Bavaria. In diplomatic news, Germany maintains alliances with Hispania, Britannia, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia and Rome. There has been an uptick of 75% of Bavaro-German primary speakers in Franconia, Saxony, Pomerania, and Brandenburg, and uptick of 90% secondary speakers in those areas. In colonial news, Nei Baiern continues to expand. In economic news, the previously informal, regional Landshut Stock Exchange is given a royal charter and given full benefits of a crown backed enterprise. RBCcoa The RBSC, founded in the late fifteenth century, is finally formalized and given a royal charter by King Leopold II in 1662. The RBSC operate chiefly in Landshut, where a stock exchange floor continues to remain active. Branches of the RBSC exist in München, Regensberg, Berlin, and Stettin. In political news, the Queen continues to sit at both Bavarian and Austrian privy councils. In industrial news, the effects of industrialization and urbanization begin to be felt in Swabia, Würzburg and Bavaria, where Stuttgart becomes the center of manufacturing and modern production. By year end, it becomes clear that industrialization is spreading in Germany after a long period of stagnation. In other news, the idea of Romanticisim and a departure of political liberalism catch on in Germany, and in Bavaria in particular. In political news, Queen Mary I continues to serve as the chief executive in all Bavaro-German politics. With Marcel Neierman at her side, and the Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg also aiding her, the Queen continually works on drafting a sturdy, effective parliament. The details of the Hochstag and Perlachtag are further hammered out, with Mary I bent on making sure such instability seen in the 1750s and 1780s will never be seen again. She goes on campaigns around the country trying to gather support for the new legislature, whilst also demonizing Romanticism and painting it as a violent, barbaric belief, and is an enemy to the common Bavarian. Many commoners and gentry accept the Queen's policies, and those groups form the backbone of her urban support. In the countryside she is less popular, and is still somewhat seen as the long dead King Frederick's puppet. Noticing this, Mary tours around the countryside as well, pledging to bring representation and parliamentary democracy to all those in the countryside. She notes while making speeches in several northern villages that the abolition of the title 'Supreme Chancellor' is still very much on her list. Marcel Neierman, now a popular figure, makes the same points in his own meetings in Swabia and Venezia. In religious and cultural news, the Department of Judaic Affairs continues to grow, mostly composed of spies and officials who act to quash anti-Jew sentiments in various municipal governments, which are prone to caving in to popular riots and the like. The Department earns the hate of the most zealous Catholics and is regarded as a corrupt organizations infringing on the rights of Christians. In royal news, Prince Franz-Hector and Elisabeth von Habsburg give birth to a daughter, whom they named Klara-Franzina. In political news, the country is overjoyed when Queen Mary I announces that the reformed Deutsche Diet will be established next year, in 1796. This new diet will be located in Augsburg and will be held in the old Parliamentary Palace. However, now there will be two houses, not one. The lower house will be named the Perlachtag, and will consists of commoners, burghers, and other un-noble men. Furthermore, members of the Perlachtag will be voted into offices, and the voting population consists of all landowning men who pay a $100 (in reichstalers) one-time fee to be able to vote. The upper house, the Hochtag, will function the same way as the old Deutsche did, where members were only members in virtue of their landed, hereditary title. Mary I also declares that the Hochtag has no veto power whatsoever, and cannot block any legislation sent up to them. The same goes for the Perlachtag when it concerns pieces of legislation sent to them by the Hochtag. The only figure with veto power is the head of the Deutsche Diet, known as the Chancellor, who may be elected by popular vote from any of the two houses, (the title of Supreme Chancellor, commonly held by the King or Queen, will be abolished, meaning that the Crown will have no role is legislation), and the reigning monarch. Furthermore, to put a piece of legislation into law, the said piece will require the signature of both the Chancellor and Monarch. Mary I announces these new plans to an excited reception, and the Monarchy grows ever more popular in 1795. Many begin to push for Marcel Neierman to involve himself in the reformed Diet and eventually run for Chancellor. The year goes on quietly other than that, except for a failed harvest in Munich and fears of a famine. In response to this, Mary I orders that the surplus food stocks of Landshut, Regensburg, Augsburg, and Ulm go to Munich in the Winter. In other news, Queen Mary I reconvenes the newly reformed Deutsche Diet to massive enthusiasm and support. In 1798, the first elections occur and 450 men are elected to the Perlachtag. Already, many are prompting Marcel Neierman to launch a campaign for the Chancellery. Marcel Neierman runs for a seat in the Perlachtag and wins it, becoming a parliamentarian. Queen Mary I is happy to know of the new scientific discoveries of infrared rays in Bavaria. In other news, the Deutsche Diet decides to authorizes the first national election for 1806. Neierman wins the election of 1806 and is sworn in as Chancellor of Bavaria-Germany on January 1, 1807. The country is overjoyed at this news. In other news, Queen Mary I turns 70 this year and many celebrate her long, successful reign. More people begin calling her "Mary the Great" as her reign nears 50 years.
    • Ddcoa2Deutsche Diet: The Deutsche Diet, also known as the German Parliament or German Diet, is established by the decree of Queen Frances I in 1736, and is given a charter that year. Gregory Hartingen, elected in 1775, is Präsident. In 1785, confidence votes are held and Hartingen's popularity rests at 33%. The Diet is once more suspended in 1790 following the Augsburg Revolt and subsequent period of instability.
    • Flag of AustriaKingdom of Austria (Constituent State of the CUG): Troops authorized by the King and Queen continue training. Several markets are constructed as well as trade houses for European traders. The Austrian Council is created as an independent privy council for the King. CuriaAustriaFlagThe Curia Austria, led by Minister-Governor Klaude Innsberg since 1787, remains the official legislature in Austria. The next Minister-Governor elections are set for 1797.

  • BoraliaFlagCommonwealth of Borealia: Both the military and economy improve. The continual industrial revolution has led to an increasing birth rate. Recent theories on economics and agriculture have led to the expansion of businesses at an exponential rate, including various forms of manufacturing, mining, and printing. Machines using steam power are also popular, as the first factories appear. Some of these businesses are also internationally based, buying and selling to the neighboring colonies of France, Britain, and Scandinavia, as well as the sovereign states of Reme, Aragon, Algonquia and Germany. The most productive of these businesses is the buffalo industry, monopolized by a few companies based in Kristallstadt (OTL Salt Lake City). The professional army and cavalry are continually trained, while the forts on both borders are expanded and new artillery is manufactured. Hunting with rifles is now a common sport in both the forests and plains, and these become the effective weaponry for local village militias. Caravels and frigates fitted with steam engines are constructed while coastal merchant trade expands across the Pacific. The University of New Vienna continues to produce new intellectuals and engineers. Telegraphs are commonly used across the state, and some news bullitens are published across it. Various publication companies for newspapers, pamphlets, and books circulate throughout the nation and are distributed to their neighbors as well. The most prolific of these publications propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and New Orleans. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion on both Newburg Island (OTL Graham Island) and Franz-Hector Island (OTL Prince of Wales Island). A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. In the plains, the commonwealth offers to annex parts of the French Borealia, see as it is the best way of ensuring the rights of Borealians there. Seeing the traditional interest in independence in Hisperia, the commonwealth offers a defensive alliance with Andea. As military and diplomatic support is sent to Reme, the curia also offers to mass manufacture raw materials from them and sell bison products. Seeing that Scandinavia has blatently disregarded the sanctity of the New Munich declaration by invading Algonquia, the state of Borealia declares war on Scandinavia. The various member of the New Munich Pact, including Reme, Arcadia, and Aragon, are encouraged to defend Algonquia from Scandinavia. 10,000 men are being deployed to Algonquia for this effort.
  • In Pskov, the GDP rises along with average wages. The Inter-Republic Road network is expanded. The Science and technology aspect of Pskov is not overlooked either. As prosperity in the nation increases, the amount of money and new people investing in institutions of higher learning. As such, the various schools that existed in Nizhegorodsk-Na-Narve unite and form the "University of Nizhegorodsk", beginning a rivalry between it and Pskov. The Pskovians want to encourage immigration from Russia, and are somewhat more successful with the Muscovite serfs, who can move around freely with their landlord's consent. This puts much issues with the leadership of Novgorod and Muscovy, who think Pskov is just looking for a fight. The ruble is becoming more and more used and is becoming the unofficial currency of Russia. The idea of currency reform, to reform it to a decimal system is put out, in order to simplify much trade (even though it is already simple enough with multiples of 20). Zlatobrezhie becomes more and more wealthy as more people get used to over 100 years of Pskovian governance. The Pskov Imperial Company appoints Anton Grigorich Volinskiy as the head of the Pirate Hunting initiative. After much pressure, The Pskov Imperial Company strengthens the defences of the Pskovian Isles, and decides to offer pirates an official pardon for their crimes, so long as they give up their ship and riches, and return to Europe to live their lives as common civilians. However, if caught a second time, there would be no pardon and they would be turned over to the colony they were captured closest to, to await their fate. Due to the world recession, and the deaths of many merchants, many Pskovians and Union citizens have taken advantage of this by taking the place and having a much larger share of the world economy, increasing the GDP by several orders of magnitude. The Grand Senate, in the wake of the civil war, gains more and more powers. Support for political unification is becoming increasingly common, as people ponder how to reduce the amount of rebellions in the future. The Pskovian industrial complex begins to be more and more built up, with much more mechanization as technology advances. An inquisitive physicist, Vecheslav Drobovitskiy invents the Twin-piston steam engine, and sells his invention to the highest bidder. A new wave of industry is about to enter the nation of Pskov. As improvements in many fields of knowledge begin to rise, Pskov is seen more and more as the heart of Russian civilization. To legitimize its position even further, after the death of Partiarch Tikhon this year, a new one, Patriarch Adrian, at this point being the Bishop of Pskov, is elected the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and swiftly after his election choses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. The PIC consolidates its control over its newly acquired West African territories, allowing certain magistrates to retain their positions so long as they learn either Russian or Latvian (but highly encouraged to learn both). The Diamonds found there are very profitable indeed. Attepmts to bring prussi back into the UK begin. More troops are sent to the West African territories. The "Bilingualism Act" is passed by the Grand Senate, requiring university graduates to learn, in addition to their native tongue, one other language of the Union of Konigsberg not part of their "native group" (i.e. No Belarussian for Pskovians or Latvian for Lithuanians and vice cersa).  This comes as a direct result of sloppy translators working in the Senate almost leading to a fight. It is hoped that this might encourage people to learn about the culture of "brother peoples" and help avoid linguistic tribulations in the Grand Senate.
    • The Federal Republic of Eesti upgrades its naval capabilities and military. A sharp divide occurs in the Republic of Eesti between the constituent republics of Narva and Taalinn. The government of Eesti asks the Grand Senate of the Union to give it some money to help the residents of the City of Tartu and rebuild. Luckily, the Union nations deem it worthy of the surplus, and each gives a small amount of their GDP, and the Bank of Pskov also extends a generous loan to the Estonian government. Residents of Tartu mostly either Flee to the country until their city can be rebuilt, or move to the neigbouring cities of Narva and Pskov. However, due to the size, a considerable amount of people stay, the government promising relief.
    • Latvia works on its economy and improving the GDP. Fully mobilize military to support Pskov and the union in upholding union ideals and not letting the Lithuanians and Prussians institute de facto slavery.
    • In Lithuania, the military is improved by purchasing weaponry from Pskov and stuff. The Prime Minister attends the Grand Summit. The Lithuanian Seima officially declares it the Successor state to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and amends the constitution to states that. As such, many wish
    • The Belarus military is improved as the road network continues being built. After the Grand Summit, Knyaz-Namestnik Dmitri Shevchenko, and Glava-Dumi Nikolai Prakazov, having signed the Pskov Concordat, both endorse the document and emplore the Duma to ratify it. The Pskov Concordat is ratified. With any remaining signs of the revolt gone due to persistent stuff of martial law, the martial law is lifted and full rights are restored to citizens. The Government of Belarus sets up a system whereby people may place grievances and be heard by a court to determine if they need compensation. Support for the unification of Belarus and Lithuania begins to gain steam, unification of the Union of Konigsberg begins to increase.

  • Rhineland: This turn is dedicated to military and economic expansion. We begin training a military based on the militias established to fight the nation of France. We work closely with Dutch and Westphalian specialists to properly train our armed forces. We also begin industrializing across our nation, incorporating the latest technological innovations from the Lowlands and Germany, paired with techniques learned from our time under France. We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.
