1810

Hesperianism develops, stating that the people of Hesperia are predestined for a culture of bravery, boldness and adaptability.

Following the tension in Punjab, Suri forces in Chagatay are relocated to the Sikh-populated areas, causing the Chagatay to discuss the possibility of using the situation to their advantage.

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg and its subjects expand their economies. New Mecklenburg in otl Australia expands by 750 px. With the Cambodian acceptance of becoming a protectorate, a new naval squadron is created to be stationed in the country. Back in Hamburg, the keel of SMS Thetis, the lead ship of the first class of steam powered naval ships, is laid down in Hamburg City. The second year of Hamburgs covert action in Prussia comes and goes, and the Prussian populace begins to show signs of turning against the von Hessens (puppet establishment turn two of five).
  • 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.
  • 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. 
  • 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.

    • Yue: Fortress is in sights to be placed anywhere. Economy frequently expands.
    • Min: Some plans for a good market about to be made but for some highly resolutions is still happening it is not to be a big problem.
    • Chu: Some model buildings is established. The target looks like even more to see a foundation.
  • 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."The nation begins a massive attempt at industrialization to keep up with the European powers and Scandinavia. Arcadia condemns any attempt by European powers to harm Algonqia and pledges a volunteer force to aid in defense.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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. A survey is taken this year, and determines that the population has risen to 2.6 million. 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 commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, in the hopes of annexing parts of them later. 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 adisregarded 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, joining with the forces of Arcadia.
  • 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.

1811

The Chagatay strike a deal with the Suri Tibetans and a revolt occurs in the northern Suri lands. The Suri army, recently relocated to Sikh areas, is forced to split up to attempt to stop the revolt.

  • 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 expanding the 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.
  • Duchy of Oldenburg: After delays last year, the Admiralty can proudly announce that all naval ships have been fitted with  copper hulls. The Duke and his family inspect the improved ships doing manoeuvres in the Jade Bay. In other news, more factories open up, taking advantage of new machinery making repetitive work so much more efficient. 
  • 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. This year, the Nehilaw capitulates. There is much rejoicing.
    • 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.
  • [1]Kingdom 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. [2] 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. [3] 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.
    • [4]Deutsche 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.
    • [5]Kingdom 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. [6]The 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.
    • [7]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.
    • [8]Duchy 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. 
    • [9]Duchy 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.
    • [10]City 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.
    • [11]Bremen 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.
    • [12]New 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. 
    • [13]New 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.
    • [14]Pearl 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.
  • 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 chooses 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. In West Africa, trouble occurs as a Union Citizen is tried for attempted murder. The |ontean governnment refuses to extradite him, as per the treaty of Kunene, and this raises tensions. An ultimatum is released in the begining of the year, saying extradite him to the PIC, or face war. The Ultimatum expires with no indication of anything from |onte(the messanger was probably lost at sea and they did not receive it). The Nations of the Union of Konigsberg vote in the Grand Senate, and overwhelmingly decide for war against |onte once more. -Lx (leave me a message)Azarath Flag 21:09, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
    • 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
  • 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.

  • 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. 
  • 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
  • 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, such as the discovery of the Great Comet of 1811. 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 commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, in the hopes of annexing parts of them later. The country offers free shelter to refugees in the recent earthquake in Cahokia. 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, joining with the forces of Arcadia.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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 expanding the 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: Military improves as economy. Road network still continues to prove the roads out in territories. (Sorry for not posting the previous one.)
    • Yue: While our hopes to go for the refugees in Cahokia, with their earthquakes destroyed everything. We expand our economy and military.
    • Min: Temples is building around the country and make more possible things.

We continue influencing Westphalia, our ally to the east.
  • [1]Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1812, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. [2] 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. [3] 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. Mary dies in 1812, at the age of 75, after enjoying a 52 year reign.
    • [4]Deutsche 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.
    • [5]Kingdom 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 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.
    • [7]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.
    • [8]Duchy 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.

    • [11]Bremen 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.
    • [12]New 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. 
    • [13]New 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.
    • [14]Pearl 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. 
  • 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 selfruling 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.

      • Cahokie: Christianization of the locals continues. Military, navy, infrastructure and economy
  • 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 government of Scandinavia requests to purchase the Faroe Islands, which had been in possession of Scandinavia for centuries, from Oldenburg for a large sum.
    • 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.

    • 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.
  • 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 along the coast, as far as Elch Mountain (OTL Ketchikan). A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. In the commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, in the hopes of annexing parts of them later. The country offers free shelter to refugees in the recent earthquake in Cahokia. 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, joining with the forces of Arcadia.

1813

The Duchy of State begins to rebel, along with Bruchhausen (annex those vassals).

I annexed Bruchhausen 200 years ago, thank you very much
The Duchy of State?
I did not create these two events, I direct you to Crim, who did. -MP
I'm just trying to get people to annex some vassals. They won't actually revolt unless you don't take action. -Crim

Westphalia begins to see revolts as well.

Unrest continues to build up in China, and the people begin demanding that their leaders take action or begin to face revolt. The urge for Chinese unification grows, and unless one party begins to take action, a new faction will emerge.

  • Kngdom of Hamburg: Hamburg and its subjects expand their economies. New Mecklenburg in otl Australia expands by 750 px. There is much activity as the Treaty of Amsterdam goes into effect.

  • 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.
  • Algonquia: Under attack by longstanding ally Scandinavia, the High Sachem abandons the coast and pulls back into the massive interior to wage a guerrilla war. Calling up all the tribal militias and the regular army, 25,000 men are mustered to launch asymmetric attacks on the Scanadinavian traitors. Algonquia calls on all its allies, especially Arcadia, Aragon and Reme to aid it against this unjust and traitorous attack. it warns that if they do not, all Borealian nations are vulnerable to reconquest by imperialist powers, and the New Munich Declaration will become a lie. Raids are launched on Scandinavian settlements where possible, killing hundreds of settlers, and more troops sneak over the border into Scandinvian territory to scalp, massacre and burn.
  • 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. 
  • 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
        • Algonquia utterly repudiates the Treaty of Rouenelle and declares French "protection" a farce for all the world to see.
  • 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 along the coast, as far as Elch Mountain (OTL Ketchikan). A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. In the commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, in the hopes of annexing parts of them later. The country offers free shelter to refugees in the recent earthquake in Cahokia. 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, joining with the forces of Arcadia and the Nehilaw. The 10,000 men already stationed in Arcadia are redirected against against the Scandinavian colonies.
  • [1]Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1812, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. [2] 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. [3] 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. Mary dies in 1812, at the age of 75, after enjoying a 52 year reign.
    • [4]Deutsche Diet: The Deutsche Diet, also known as the German Parliament or German Diet, is established by the decree of Queen Frances I in 1736, and is given a charter that year.

In 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.
    • [8]Duchy 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.

    • [12]New 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. 
    • [13]New 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.
    • [14]Pearl 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 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 chooses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. Union forces continue to fight The |ontean military, decimating the navy at the battle of the equator, the invasion force lands in the north of the nation, as it attempts to capture lands in the north, while PIC and other Union forces attack the south, moving towards the capital. In an effort to avoid certain bloodshed, much luke the last war, the allegiances of certain nobles are won over with promises of trade deals and keeping them in power (some of whom have already learned Union languages due to the UK's interest in basically conquering the territory).
    • 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
  • 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.

1814

Oblomov takes initiative in the Slavic League, slowly making other members subordinate to Russia. Although tolerable, distrust grows between the Slavic leaders and Oblomov. Oblomov continues his work at centralizing and modernizing Russia, slowly bringing it up to par with other nations in the area.

Two different revolts break out in China. The first takes place in Sichuan, led by a leader named Li Zicheng, who declares the start of the Shun Dynasty. Further south, rebels claiming to represent the deposed Ming also rise up.

A large vat of beer in London explodes, destroying several buildings and killing nine.

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg and its subjects expand their militaries. New Mecklenburg, recently enlarged with the annexation of New Holland, expands by 750 px. A wave of anti-von Hessen sentiment continues, and the conspiring nobles let their Hamburg partners know that the Prussian military is supporting the conspirators. By this year, seven Thetis class steam powered paddle frigates have been completed for service in the Hamburgian Royal Navy, but a new idea begins to gain support: plating the bow of a warships with iron, and using the ship, and its faster speed, as a ram. The eighth Thetis type ship, still under construction, is drafted to experiment with the concept. Lippe, Stade, and Brunswick-Göttingen are annexed into Hamburg proper.
  • 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 expanding the military.
  • 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.
  • 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. A few ships from the Haejagang colony that were blown off course soon lands on OTL Viti Levu, and set up a new colony called Baeglyeongyo (백련교).
  • Wu: We will improve our relations for other countries. Even a slight things could improve. Economy and military, which is supposedly an improvement. Meanwhile, our territores like road network is keeping the business on for a work. Guangzhou is the main capital city. Government admits farming is hopefully a big market providing for economy. Troops still doing some weapon tests and melees. Even so the outposts and bunkers will be built later.
    • Yue: Train company network still in sight due to a conspiracy time. Religions of temples are established. But for some things like the economy and military, following the great insurance for improvement.
    • Min: Structures established. Further more, the incomes and taxes are improved likely, some things can be approved for market and the economy.
    • Chu: As our road network will be named shortly, but at the Fortress meanwhile, the troops gain some more testing and training procedures.
  • Algonquia: Under attack by longstanding ally Scandinavia, the High Sachem abandons the coast and pulls back into the massive interior to wage a guerrilla war. Calling up all the tribal militias and the regular army, 25,000 men are mustered to launch asymmetric attacks on the Scanadinavian traitors. Algonquia calls on all its allies, especially Arcadia, Aragon and Reme to aid it against this unjust and traitorous attack. it warns that if they do not, all Borealian nations are vulnerable to reconquest by imperialist powers, and the New Munich Declaration will become a lie. Raids are launched on Scandinavian settlements where possible, killing hundreds of settlers, and more troops sneak over the border into Scandinvian territory to scalp, massacre and burn. What remains of Algonquia's navy flees to foreign ports to avoid capture, from which they indiscriminately attack Scandinavian merchants, under other flags.
  • 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. 
  • 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.

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.

  • Duchy of Oldenburg: With our ally Hamburg experimenting so successfully with iron-clad and steam-powered naval ships, the Government sends a team of engineers and naval officers to Hamburg to learn more about this revolutionary technology. Meanwhile, the military forces in the colonies are built up at the request of the colonial representatives to the Landtag. Scandinavia is told that the government is open to negotiation regarding the Faroes, but that monetary compensation will not suffice. Neu Juist expands into the blank space. In other news, the High Council sets up a "Alkoholministerium" to police alcohol brewers in light of the beer explosion in London. Condolences are also sent to Bavaria after the death of Queen Mary.
    • Hamburgian Dip: Hamburg hears of Oldenburgs interest in the steam powered ships, and the engineers are made aware to make their notes, and the ships themselves, available should the Oldenburgers request it.
  • 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.
  • 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. Rifles are not standard equipment across the military. 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 bulletins are published across it. The most prolific publications of the commonwealth propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland, and New Orleans. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion along the coast, as far as Elch Mountain (OTL Ketchikan). A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. In the commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, in the hopes of annexing parts of them later. The country offers free shelter to refugees in the recent earthquake in Cahokia. 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, joining with the forces of Arcadia and the Nehilaw. The 10,000 men already stationed in Arcadia are redirected against against the Scandinavian colonies.
  • [1]Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1812, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. [2] 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. [3] 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. Mary dies in 1812, at the age of 75, after enjoying a 52 year reign.
    • [4]Deutsche 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.
    • [5]Kingdom 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. [6]The 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.
    • [7]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.
    • [8]Duchy 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. 
    • [9]Duchy 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.

Several cogs are constructed, and plans are drafted to construct many larger ships. Several modern warships and trade vessels begin construction at Bremen Port.
    • [12]New 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. 
    • [13]New 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.
    • [14]Pearl 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 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 chooses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. During the lengthy siege of Kunene from both the north and the south, the |onteans capitulate, and are forced to sue for peace unconditionally. Depending on the final result, Pskov either takes all or most of the territory.
    • 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 state 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.

1815

The uprisings in China continue at full speed, ravaging the land between the two. 

With the withdrawal of Suri troops from Chagatai lands, the Chagatai, with some assistance from Tibetan forces, take back almost all of their former territory and driving out Suri governors. 

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg and its subjects expand their economies. New Mecklenburg in otl Australia expands by 750 px. In Prussia, the key part of the conspiracy is executed. The nobles launch a coup against the von Hessen rulers. With the majority of the military supporting the conspirators, control is established relatively easily. Publicly, Hamburg is disturbed by the coup, and talks of a military intervention begin. In private, however, officials toast the near-flawless execution. Meanwhile, an envoy is sent to Britannia, offering it a handsome sum to aid in easing its disarray (hasn't posted for a long time) in exchange for the island of Cuba. (Mod response, please)
    • Britannia, in dire need for money, reluctantly agrees. (Note: The Britannic populace already there will probably give you issues to handle)
  • 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 and the colony of Baeglyeongyo (백련교) expands by 100 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. The government of Scandinavia, happy to hear that Oldenburg is open to negotiating, asks what the Faroe would be willing to trade for the Faroe Islands. In the meantime, Scandinavia sees that Britain is beginning to falter in power. In the interest of helping their longstanding allies, they propose a personal union with Britain. (MOD RESPONSE NEEDED)
  • The British government is eager to agree on this in order to prosper once more, however wishes for a lengthy treaty to be written to ensure Britannic goals and ideals are respected in the upcoming union.
  • Oldenburger Diplomacy: The Oldenburger Envoy elucidates his Government's wishes: In exchange for returning the Faroes (but not the Shetlands) to Scandinavia, the latter will recognise Oldenburg's exclusive and perpetual right to the Greenland coast extending from Oldenburg's current settlement in the North (Neu Borkum) down to Oldenburg's small settlement on the Southern tip of the Island, and extending inland as far as Scandinavia's coastal settlement does. Scandinavia will also recognise Oldenburg's perpetual and exclusive right to establish whaling stations and take possession of the Svalbard archipelago. Scandinavia will also agree that, if any other nation attempts to infringe on said rights of possession, Scandinavia will actively support and advocate Oldenburg's rights to those aforementioned territories.
    • 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.

    • 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.
  • 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."The nation begins a massive attempt at industrialization to keep up with the European powers and Scandinavia. Arcadia sends a (SECRET) diplomatic missive inquiring on the purchase of part of Scandinavia's colonies in the future to help the young nation grow into a healthy power.
    • The Commonwealth of Borealia hopes that Arcadia will aid in liberating the remaining colonies of the continent from the oppression of European imperialism, in fulfillment of the New Munich Declaration.
    • Algonquia also hopes Arcadia will in the future be loyal to the New Munich Declaration, something it failed to do in the recent attack by Scandinavia. Does this betray a wish to have the benefits of mutual defence without actually defending others?
  • 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 expanding the military.
  • Wu: We will improve our relations for other countries. Even a slight things could improve. Economy and military, which is supposedly an improvement.

Troops still doing some weapon tests and melees. Even so the outposts and bunkers will be built later.
    • Yue: Train company network still in sight due to a conspiracy time. Religions of temples are established. But for some things like the economy and military, following the great insurance for improvement.
    • Min: Structures established. Further more, the incomes and taxes are improved likely, some things can be approved for market and the economy.
    • Chu: As our road network will be named shortly, but at the Fortress meanwhile, the troops gain some more testing and training procedures.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Duchy of Oldenburg: The Duke sends a personal letter to the King of Hamburg thanking him for his kindness and generosity regarding the steamship technology. The military delegation in Hamburg takes assiduous notes and talks to ship captains and engineers about the practical aspects of steam-powered ironclad warships. A diplomatic delegation is sent to the relatively new nation of Arcadia, seeking to establish relations and assure the government that Oldenburg has no territorial designs on any Arcadian territory, whilst also hoping that the Arcadians will recognise Oldenburger sovereignity over the Neu Norderney colony. The turnpike trusts are proving invaluable for a slowly industrialising Oldenburg, as transport between farm, factory, and market can be made relatively quickly on the smooth roads. 
  • 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 95,000, 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.

    • 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.
  • [15]Commonwealth 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, Arcadia, 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. Rifles are not standard equipment across the military. 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 bulletins are published across it. The most prolific publications of the commonwealth propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland and New Orleans. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion along the coast, as far as Elch Mountain (OTL Ketchikan). A pledge of mutual defense is offered to California, in the hopes of protecting them from French imperialism. In the commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, in the hopes of annexing parts of them later. The country offers free shelter to refugees in the recent earthquake in Cahokia. 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. There is great joy in the news that Algonquia has been liberated from the unprovoked invasion by Scandinavia, and a national holiday is declared. Many people in the Curia, meanwhile, believe that Scandinavia should be punished for this heinous act. These conservatives propose that the Norse should, therefore, forfeit the right to their colonies. 
  • 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. 
  • 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 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 chooses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. During the lengthy siege of Kunene from both the north and the south, the |onteans capitulate, and are forced to sue for peace unconditionally. Depending on the final result, Pskov either takes all or most of the territory. The Recent coup(or not) in Prussia is taken very seriously in the Union of Konigsberg. They view this as a personal attack, seeing as they have kept 90 seats in the Electoral, and 45 seats in the Senate vacant for Prussia. They see this as an illegal coup, and threaten military intervention, and will view a Hamburger Invasion as an Invasion of the UK. UK begins to spring up support amongst the agrarian classes for their cause to return to democracy in full. Seeing brittain in danger of collapse, the PIC decides to lend it a hand by requesting the purchase of any of all of the following: Hispaniola (Haiti + Dominican), and the various African colonies, having recently just set up shop in Western Africa with more support. (mod response, please)
    • 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

1816

The Suri forces are forced out of Chagatai, which reasserts its independence. In the Suri homeland, the domestic situation is falling apart and it appears the entire country may soon collapse and devolve into violence and bloodshed. 

The Shun forces rapidly gain in areas that are afflicted by their insurgency, and unless a nation strives to stop them, the Shun may begin to overrun other areas in China. (Scores, 8, 6, 5, undoubled)

Russia under its new leader is rapidly modernizing both its economy and military, and they begin to marshall their troops and influence and eye nearby nations. 

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg and its subjects expand their economies. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands by 750 px. In February of this year, Hamburg launches its military intervention in Prussia. Several thousand troops, escorted by three Thetis class paddle steamer frigates (the first time steamships have been used in a military operation), land in and near Königsberg. The conspirators have their armies stand down, though go into "hiding". Now, Hamburg launches a special commission composed of Prussian nobles who did not partake in the coup (yet are still on Hamburgs payroll), as well as a few Hamburgian advisors, to study the history and condition of Prussia under von Hessen rule, and determine if they should sanction their return to rule. Their final report and recommendation to the provisional Prussian Government is expected next year. Meanwhile, the Royal Hamburgian Navy starts its own study into the performance of the steamships in their first, albeit limited, military operation. In July, several divisions of the Hamburgian Borealian naval squadron arrives in Havanna, Kuba to formally take control of the island. Due to the large Britannic and Spanish populations, both English and Spanish are made co-official languages with German.
    • I believe there was a mod event that esentially said "screw all outside influence", so nobody shouyld be on your payroll
  • 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 and the colony of Baeglyeongyo (백련교) expands by 100 sq km.
  • Duchy of Oldenburg: The military delegation in Hamburg continues taking assiduous notes and talko to ship captains and engineers about the practical aspects of steam-powered ironclad warships. A taskgroup is set up to design a potential Oldenburger equivalent ship. The diplomatic delegation to Arcadia, seeking to establish good relations with our neighbour, assures the government that Oldenburg has no territorial designs on any Arcadian territory. The delegation also hopes that the Arcadians will recognise Oldenburger sovereignity over the Neu Norderney colony which, it should be noted, has considerable self-government, sends a representative to the Landtag in Oldenburg, and is the homeland of the current Duke of Oldenburg. The envoy to Scandinavia reiterates the government's proposal regarding the Faroes, made last year.

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.

  • Algonquia continues to industrialize and modernize, with modern chemistry and steam power becoming more widely prevalent. The University of Maskekon helps power this expansion. The navy and merchant marine grow and modernize, accompanied by the military. The people celebrate at the defeat of the treacherous attack by the faithless Scandinavians, and flock to join the new nationwide militia, enabling the regular army to grow to 35,000. It begins to rearm with new and more modern muskets, as well as retrain to include better co-operation with artillery. Algonquia request to form a defensive league with the Asakiwaki, Kiwigapawa, Mascouten and Potawotomi, all of whom are threatened by Scandinavian expansion and will, therefore, benefit from protection. Bribes are offered to their leaders to help ensure a favourable outcome. Mod Response, Please
  • 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 chooses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. During the lengthy siege of Kunene from both the north and the south, the |onteans capitulate, and are forced to sue for peace unconditionally. Depending on the final result, Pskov either takes all or most of the territory. The Union of Konigsberg launches its own military intervention in Prussia with the Support of the Peasantry. With the Influences it had been spreading and whatnot. The Union of Konigbserg sends 20,000 troops and sends its navy to blockade the Prussian coast, and are ordered to fire on any ships bearing the Hamburg flag. The Grand Senate gives the hamburgians an ultimatum, remove their military and let democracy into Prussia, or face war with the Union of konigsberg. Seeing brittain in danger of collapse, the PIC decides to lend it a hand by requesting the purchase of any of all of the following: Hispaniola (Haiti + Dominican), and the various African colonies, having recently just set up shop in Western Africa with more support.

    • 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
  • 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, Arcadia, 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. Rifles are not standard equipment across the military. 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. The first cameras are built, and start to be used by newspapers in Kristallstadt. Telegraphs are commonly used across the state, and some news bulletins are published across it. The most prolific publications of the commonwealth propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland and New Orleans. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion along the coast, as far as Elch Mountain (OTL Ketchikan). 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. In the commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, in the hopes of annexing parts of them later. Seeing the traditional interest in independence in Hisperia, the commonwealth offers a defensive alliance with Andea. There is great joy in the news that Algonquia has been liberated from the unprovoked invasion by Scandinavia, and a national holiday is declared. Many people in the Curia, meanwhile, believe that Scandinavia should be punished for this heinous act. These conservatives propose that the Norse should, therefore, forfeit the right to their colonies. Diplomats secretly sent to Arcadia ensure their future aid to partition the Scandinavian colonies.

In an effort to restore order to his country, the leader of the Suri Empire leads an attack in the Sikh communities, but he is unexpectedly killed in the chaos. With the leader dead, the entire country devolves into chaos, much like the Hindustani Sultanate previously did. 

The Shun Dynasty continues to improve in strength, its forces augmented by previous success and the clear objective of reunifying China. With such support, its forces mobilize near the border of the Manchu Empire, hoping to overthrow the most powerful state in the region and reclaim the Imperial throne. 

NAWH, I refuse to let dis happen! My poor Manchu... Well tbh, if an algo was made; the Shun could kinda lose to the Manchu lol. Btw, I am not aware if it matters; but the Imperium of Heaven [Pitas nation] has long been conquered by the Manchu. It was never coloured for some reason. -Rimp

After nearly seven years of limbo after the fall of Damascus and the end of the Damascan Sultanate, forces in the Middle East begin to act and reshape the region. Morocco breaks away from Damascan control and establishes itself as a mixed Muslim-Christian state with a Muslim royal family. Back in the Middle East, members of the Hashemite family soon take control of the Hejaz and begin expanding their influence amongst the various tribes and families of Arabia. The fall of the Damascans also has significant effects on Persia, and the Persian people begin to once again take control of their own affairs.

  • Kingdom of Hamburg: Hamburg and its subjects expand their militaries. New Mecklenburg in OTL Australia expands by 750 px. The Hamburg-sponsored Prussian commission that began last year publishes its study of the von Hessen dynastic rule in the country. Authored by the Prussian nobles, it takes a highly-critical position, calling the von Hessens "unfit by design to rule Prussia". While King Wilhelm II might've hoped for a less scathing review, he never doubted the outcome. Citing a royal marriage with the old Prussian House, he claims the Kingdom of Prussia for the House von Hamburg. The Prussian nobility in Hamburgs pocket backs his claim, and Wilhelm is crowned "King in Prussia and Defender of its People" in Königsberg Church. After the ceremony, he directly addresses the Pskovian ultimatum, "The Prussian people threw off their shackles to Pskov long ago, and I will not stand by and watch as the good German people of this nation fall to it a second time. I will not watch as Germans are subjugated to the Slavs in Pskov under the guise of democracy. We (Hamburg) have stood against the greatest empire in Northern Europe, and we have won...four times. Now our troops, trained by those who marched into Jutland twenty years ago, will stand beside you, and we will defend the Prussian from this anarchy called Pskov." The speech is printed in various newspapers, and the Hamburg-Westphalian Military is mobilized for the expected war. King Wilhelm, meanwhile, appoints 35 Prussian representatives to the Hanoverian Parliament, though their tenure is temporary until the local Prussian municipalities can choose for themselves. The number is significant as 35 is equal in number to only Hamburg propers' representatives.
  • 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 and the colony of Baeglyeongyo (백련교) expands by 100 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. 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.
  • 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 expanding their military.
  • Wu: We will improve our relations for other countries. Even a slight things could improve. Economy and military, which is supposedly an improvement. Meanwhile, our territores like road network is keeping the business on for a work. Guangzhou is the main capital city. Government admits farming is hopefully a big market providing for economy. Troops still doing some weapon tests and melees. Even so the outposts and bunkers will be built later.
    • Yue: Train company network still in sight due to a conspiracy time. Religions of temples are established. But for some things like the economy and military, following the great insurance for improvement.
    • Min: Structures established. Further more, the incomes and taxes are improved likely, some things can be approved for market and the economy.
    • Chu: As our road network will be named shortly, but at the Fortress meanwhile, the troops gain some more testing and training procedures.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Duchy of Oldenburg: With the help of Hamburger warship designs and expertise, the Admiralty begins designing its own steram-powered ironclad. The first one to be built, the SMS Herzog Konrad is expected to be completed in about five years. The diplomatic delegation to Arcadiaseeking to establish good relations with our neighbour, assures the government that Oldenburg has no territorial designs on any Arcadian territory. The delegation also hopes that the Arcadians will recognise Oldenburger sovereignity over the Neu Norderney colony which, it should be noted, has considerable self-government, sends a representative to the Landtag in Oldenburg, and is the homeland of the current Duke of Oldenburg. The envoy to Scandinavia reiterates the government's proposal regarding the Faroes, made in 1815.

  • 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. 
  • 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.

  • [1]Kingdom of Bavaria (Constituent State of the Crown-Union of Germany): In 1812, Bavaria expands its economy. National infrastructure is developed. The population continues to rise. Trausnitz is returned to its place as national capital. [2] 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. [3] 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.

  • 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 chooses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. During the lengthy siege of Kunene from both the north and the south, the |onteans capitulate, and are forced to sue for peace unconditionally. Depending on the final result, Pskov either takes all or most of the territory. The Union of Konigsberg launches its own military intervention in Prussia with the Support of the Peasantry. With the Influences it had been spreading and whatnot. The Union of Konigbserg sends 20,000 troops and sends its navy to blockade the Prussian coast, and are ordered to fire on any ships bearing the Hamburg flag. The Supreme Prince of the Union of Konigsberg appeares in Insterburg, and delivers himself a speech to the public in Prussia, The Men who have bled dry the lands of Prussia, who have corrupted the interests of the people to their own, the men who deny the people the right to rule themselves, and have denied the Free people of Prussia the rights and freedoms they are born with are now spreading their influence through bribery and corruption, foreign invaders attept to take away the dignity of the people of Prussia. Konigsberg is where the treaty that brought the peoples of the northern baltic together into a brotherhood of nations, and now a foreign power wishes to undermine it, and destroy the trust that was once fostered beween the peoples of the north. I say let the people of Prussia decide their own fate, and not be left to the whims of slave masters in their paper thrones! Another 20,000 men are mobilized, and the navy continues its blockade of the coast and Troops begin forming front lines, Siege guns and artillery are brought to the city of Konigsberg, where five thousand troops camp outside, waiting to be let in. Supreme Prince Alexander travels to Konigsberg in escort, demanding to meet with the leader of the "Hamburgian Invasion of Union Land". Elections are scheduled for Senatorial representitives in the land where UK troops are, and a total of 23 of Prussia's 45 seats in the Senate are prepared to be filled by next year. Troops are prepared to expulse the invaders at all costs. ***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.

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

In response to the Pskovian blockade of Königsberg, the entire Baltic division of the Hamburgian Navy, including Hamburgs entire steamship contingent, is gathered for a counter attack. The fleet attacks the Pskovians a few days later, and after a vicious battle, the blockade is broken, and reinforcements and supplies begin entering the city. The Pskovian Prince is met outside Königsberg gates by Angela II von Hamburg-Bremen, Duchess Bremen, and cousin of King Wilhelm II, who was appointed by him as provisional Governor. But she "regretfully" informs the Prince that there is no "leader of the Hamburgian invasion of Union land", as there is no "invasion", and Prussia isn't Union land. She reminds him that Prussia decided long ago to not be subjugated by Pskov: when it threw off its chains and rose against it. She also reminds the Pskovian Prince, "The Rezeß has guaranteed the rights of man since the time you bent your knee to Moscow." She then demands Pskov remove its curropting influence from Prussia, and pay reparations to the legitimate Prussian government for the years of abuses under Pskov.

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.

  • 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.

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.

    • Judea: The land is put under temporary military occupation as the Zevi family moves in and aids in the Roman occupation.

To that end, economic and military growth are used to restore the land and keep the peace. 
    • Syria: The former capital region proves to be a considerable issue for the Roman occupation forces, as the region is full of Muslims but also a significant quantity of Christians. Roman forces establish themselves in the city of Antioch, which houses the largest Christian community of Syria, and from there they use military and economic power to heal the land and expand Roman control over taxation, military patrols, and infrastructure rebuilding.

This is brought towards Duchess Angella II, who is given a short lesson in history "We are Unbowed, Even a Prince is beholden to the people, we are unbent, for even when the Muscovites attempted to seal our fate, we ousted them from the city, and we were unbroken in the face of the united forces of Russia and Poland, spitting in their faces as the proud peoples of Pskov defended their homeland from invaders. I remember no time when the people of Prussia were ever shackled by the Union, but I do remember a time when greedy noblemen wanted to treat people like cattle, and our armies righeously defeated them." Revealing the correspondaces between the Prussian "Nobility" and Hamburgian state, he continues "But here what I see is your nation colluding and bribing your way to overthrow the legitimate United Governement of Prussia, and I doubt any nation that allies itself with slavers can truly consider itself a defender of the rights of man, something Pskov and the Union have done since before our ancestors saw the light of Christ, even as heathens we had more respect for our fellow man, than you have as Christians. Do not lie to our face invader, history should not be forgotten". With this the Hamburgian ambassador is expelled from Pskov, and the Pskovian ambassador recalled from Hamburg. Another 5000 troops arrive at the walls of Konigsberg, demanding that "order be restored", taking residence in the encampment that could very well resemble small villages. Naval re-inforcements are sent and people start demanding action. Correspondences found by the military are circulated across Europe, revealing the coup d'etat to foreign powers.  More military buildup occurs in Prussia, and the fact that Poland is in between Prussia and Hamburg it dutifully taken advantage of. THe Prince stays in the encampment, demanding an audience with "Wilhelm II of Hamburg" (this means chat, please). The Old Prussian Government is allowed to set up shop in Insterburg, creating essentially two competing Prussian states.
    • 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.
      • Hamburgian Dip: Duchess Angela finds its awfully convenient that the only "evidence" produced has come from a Pskovian source. She also replies, "You have skipped explaining away Prussias revolution, where they had enough of your rule and castes it out. Since then the von Hessens have squandered that freedom, and those who derived their powers from the governed, same as you, same as myself, decided to have another revolution. You have destroyed any hope of restoration of order with this invasion of yours. You call us slavers, yet if you had any sense of our history, you would know that the Rezeß Convention in the late fifteenth century outlawed slavery, equally so with serfdom a century ago. When His Majesty was crowned, the Rezeß took effect in Prussia, overriding the previous laws. You want to discuss great defenses? Hamburg, when Hamburg only extended to the walls of the old city, fought off the full strength of the Kalmar Union, yet our walls held. Twice the Empire of Scandinavia and once the Empire of Rome descended on our lands. Every time we sent their men home in boxes. Only twenty years ago we successfully defended the Moari of New Rugia, and their rights to their lands and customs. Your other accusations are baseless, as empty as the promises you makes towards these people of Prussia. You desire a throne for yourself here, yet you don't speak their language, you don't believe the same as them, and you don't share their culture. I will send for His Majesty, but as his representative here, and a friend since childhood, I can assure you that your flag won't fly over these walls again, and if they fly here ever, it will be over rubble, and the blood and corpses of your men." Please message me when you're available for chat.
      • A coup orchestrated by corrupt ministers under the pay of a foreign power is no revolution, it is an invasion. There is no desire for a crown here, there is only desire for the freedom of Prussia to be respected. How else would a Prince adress his people, if not in their tongue, If you had any grasp of the world, you would know that modern diplomats and politicians, especially those who are the heads of multilingual federations, know many tongues, that while there may be different patriarchs, the Christian church is united, and that the simple act of Sharing a language does not necessitate common culture. Prussia has developed on its own for centuries, and is not Hamburg, which allies itself with Slavers that should never have been pardoned if only Supreme Prince Erik von Einzbern would have known that they would renegg on their promises, and open their lands to invaders.  
  • 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, Arcadia, 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. Rifles are not standard equipment across the military. 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. The first cameras are built and start to be used by newspapers in Kristallstadt. Telegraphs are commonly used across the state, and some news bulletins are published across it. The most prolific publications of the commonwealth propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland and New Orleans. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion along the coast, as far as Elch Mountain (OTL Ketchikan). Local militia from frontier villages are deployed to protect settlements and caravans. As military and diplomatic support is sent to Reme, the curia also offers to mass manufacture raw materials from them and sell bison products. In the commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, in the hopes of annexing parts of them later. Seeing the traditional interest in independence in Hisperia, the commonwealth offers a defensive alliance with Andea. Many people in the Curia believe that Scandinavia should be punished for their treacherous act against Algonquia. These conservatives propose that the Norse should, therefore, forfeit the right to their colonies. Diplomats secretly sent to Arcadia ensure their future aid to partition the Scandinavian colonies.
  • Duchy of Oldenburg: Work begins on the SMS Herzog Konrad. The diplomatic delegation to Arcadiaseeking to establish good relations with our neighbour, assures the government that Oldenburg has no territorial designs on any Arcadian territory. The delegation also hopes that the Arcadians will recognise Oldenburger sovereignity over the Neu Norderney colony which, it should be noted, has considerable self-government, sends a representative to the Landtag in Oldenburg, and is the homeland of the current Duke of Oldenburg. The envoy to Scandinavia reiterates the government's proposal regarding the Faroes, made in 1815. 

1819

The Assyrians continue to assert the independence of their new state. At the same time, the Persians do the same and begin influencing other Persian lands into rebellion.

The Hashemites begin to influence Yemen and mobilize their forces to march across other Arab areas.

  • 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 expanding 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 and the colony of Baeglyeongyo (백련교) expands by 100 sq km.
  • 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. With the war with the Damascans concluded, the country celebrates its victory and comes to the conclusion that the war of retribution against the Muslims, Arabs, and Turks has finally reached its conclusion. With that said, the Empire goes about to not only restore and rebuild its new territories, but also protect them and ensure that they never slip from the Empire's grasp again. Economic aid as well as investment and improved infrastructure is used to help restore the lands and bring the people back to the advanced way of life that most of the Empire now experiences. Relationships with Armenia, Georgia and the new Assyria are also cultivated. Membership is also sought in the Slavic League to counter the power of the resurgent Russia.
    • 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. 
    • Judea: The land is put under temporary military occupation as the Zevi family moves in and aids in the Roman occupation. Jerusalem is declared liberated by the Romans for the second time since its capture by the Muslims, and the Romans are keenly aware of the wars that resulted in its loss before. To that end, economic and military growth are used to restore the land and keep the peace. 
    • Syria: The former capital region proves to be a considerable issue for the Roman occupation forces, as the region is full of Muslims but also a significant quantity of Christians. Roman forces establish themselves in the city of Antioch, which houses the largest Christian community of Syria, and from there they use military and economic power to heal the land and expand Roman control over taxation, military patrols, and infrastructure rebuilding. 
  • 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.
  • 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 stop our isolationist polocies 
  • 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 twenty million by 1830. 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. Scandinavia celebrates the Treaty of York as the House of Bjelbo-Griffins merges with the House of Scotland in Britannia to form the House of Scandinavia-Britannia. They accept the Oldenburger proposal for the Faroe Islands. To better manage the personal union between Britain and Scandinavia, the union is to be named the Nordic Union/Northern Union (to be used interchangably).
    • Durbin: The colony of Durbin expands along the western coast of Australia from the former settlement that crashed there so long ago. With contact and resources flowing in from Scandinavia-Britannia, a minor boom is witnessed (colony expands 1000 sq km south along western coast).
    • Eire: The Irish continue to expand the navy and army, even more so due to the strains in Europe.
    • Ghana: More troops are raised from locals. Military and infrastructure are expanded. Most locals now see themselves as loyal British citizens and now fully vote and represent the colonies, Ghana becomes the first Brittannic colony to invoke near self rule, with little regulation from the homeland due to the mutual respect from the others. Any separatist movements are largely ignored.
    • 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.
    • Port Edmundburg: Expands by 1000 sq km south and east down the coast. The African colonists begin looking toward mining and other ventures to generate profit. A new newspaper, the first in a colony, is founded, called the Edmundburg Report. The slave trade begins to boom as exploitation of local minerals reaches a high amount. Slaves are sent to the New World to help boost production.
    • 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.
    • Scotland: Expands navy and military. The Edinburgh Stock Exchange continues to do well. The Emperor visits Glasgow for the wedding of noblewoman Cassandra De' Levae, wife of the Duke of Westminster in a surprise visit keen on proving that he is open to reconciliation with the House of Hamburg.
    • 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.
  • Algonquia: Continues to industrialize and modernize, with modern chemistry and steam power becoming more widely prevalent. The University of Maskekon helps power this expansion. The navy and merchant marine grow and modernize, accompanied by the military. The people celebrate at the failure of the treacherous attack by the faithless Scandinavians, and flock to join the new nationwide militia, enabling the regular army to grow to 40,000. It begins to rearm with new and more modern muskets, as well as retrain to include better co-operation with artillery. A student at the University of Maskekon challenges his professors by writing a pamphlet outlining the benefits of central control of the economy to ensure equality for all. After this enjoys unprecedented success, he quits the University to better develop his theories. Algonquia request to form a defensive league with the Asakiwaki, Kiwigapawa, Mascouten and Potawotomi, numbers 11,12,13 and 15 on the map, all of whom are threatened by Scandinavian expansion and will, therefore, benefit from protection. Bribes are offered to their leaders to help ensure a favourable outcome. (Mod Response, Please)
  • 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 chooses to relocate the see of Russian Orthodoxy to the cathedral of Christ the Savior in Pskov. During the lengthy siege of Kunene from both the north and the south, the |onteans capitulate, and are forced to sue for peace unconditionally. Depending on the final result, Pskov either takes all or most of the territory. After a lengthy conversation with the Hamburgian monarch, An initial agreement is reached to demilitarize the region, with both nations withdrawing a large portion of their troops by the end of the year. The "Leibnitz Papers", the secret corespondaces between Prussia and Hamburg, are circulated throughout Europe, and Nikolaus von Leibnitz is demanded to be tried on account of corruption and treason. The Navy is demobilized, and only a small portion continues a partial blockade, in order to ensure that "no military vessel may pass with troops into the land of Prussia from Hamburg". Tensions remain high, however, but these first steps to a diplomatic solution make it seem as though the European Continent may not be headed for another war after all. There is still internal division, however, as two "Prussias" begin to form, North Prussia, centered in Konigsberg, and South Prussia, centered in  Insterberg. Talks are scheduled in France for early march next year in Paris, where Supreme Prince Alexander would meet with King Wilhelm.

  • Duchy of Oldenburg: The government is thrilled by Scandinavia's accepting of our proposal. Our ambassador to Scandinavia signs the official agreement, and the land swap will formally take place next year. The Faroe islanders are given the opportunity to move to Oldenburg or one of its other colonies if they do not wish to live under the Scandinavians. About one hundred do, and all of them are of German descent. The remainder of the population is thrilled to be returning to Scandinavian rule. The Lieutenant-Governor of Neu Borkum (the Greenlandic colony) begins preparation for the rapid expansion of his territory next year. In other news, The diplomatic delegation to Arcadiaseeking to establish good relations with our neighbour, assures the government that Oldenburg has no territorial designs on any Arcadian territory. The delegation also hopes that the Arcadians will recognise Oldenburger sovereignity over the Neu Norderney colony which, it should be noted, has considerable self-government, sends a representative to the Landtag in Oldenburg, and is the homeland of the current Duke of Oldenburg. The military scientists unveil a second generation of Windbuchse. These guns learn from the mistakes of the first batch, with a much stronger air reservoir and a large mechanical airpump to be used by a whole company. The hand-pumps can still be used as a backup. This new batch is distributed amongst about a quarter of the whole army, with even the Neu Norderney Regiment being given them. 
  • 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, Arcadia, 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. Rifles are not standard equipment across the military. 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. The first cameras are built, and start to be used by newspapers in Kristallstadt. Telegraphs are commonly used across the state, and some news bulletins are published across it. The most prolific publications of the commonwealth propagate philosophies of independence as far as Newfoundland, Vineland and New Orleans. The new steam ships have allowed for more colonial expansion along the coast, as far as Elch Mountain (OTL Ketchikan). As military and diplomatic support is sent to Reme, the curia also offers to mass manufacture raw materials from them and sell bison products. In the commonwealth continues to influence the French colonies, in the hopes of annexing parts of them later. Seeing the traditional interest in independence in Hisperia, the commonwealth offers a defensive alliance with Andea. Many people in the Curia believe that Scandinavia should be punished for their treacherous act against Algonquia. These conservatives propose that the Norse should, therefore, forfeit the right to their colonies. Diplomats secretly sent to Arcadia ensure their future aid to partition the Scandinavian colonies. 
  • 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 20 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 40,000 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 105,000, 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 31,000, as Andean settlers come and Spaniards go. In total, 5000 Andea settlers come and 2000 Spanish leave. 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 seven 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.
