Principia Moderni Map 1840
Principia Moderni Map 1840 Key

In Eastern Kazakhstan, where the Russian influence is less, Islamic uprisings begin to occur, as the movement moves east. However, they aren't full-scale revolts, yet. In China, in the "panhandle" north of Kazakhstan, minor revolts occur, but the Muslim population there has been under Chinese rule for so long that they are partially assimilated. However, to the further east in the West Changistan Areas (that used to be Changistani, but then China took before they vassalized Changistan) many revolts begin to occur.

Why are the United Emirates (former United Principalities) neutral? They even have to have some lands from the Muslims who asked protection the last turn.

Which nations took Sharzur's territory aside of Armenia and the United Principalities?

All of the surrounding nations. Also Sweden is missing Franz Josef Land.

  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75*75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75*75 sq mi. The Persian Andes colony expands by 75*75 sq mi. With stability restored, the government declares a state of emergency to recover the country. They ask Russia and China for help.
    • You've not yet accepted nor rejected my terms of peace. Until you accept them, the country is still at war against the Caliphate. Really, you do need read to other peoples posts and stop these copy-and-paste posts of yours.
    • Persian Diplomacy: Persia accepts to pay the costs of the war, but refuses to give them military technologies to the country, yet will establish a demilitarized zone between the two countries.
  • The Vietnamese expand their East Africa colony westwards by 76*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue to expand industry through out the empire. The Vietnamese assist the Kenians in recovering more of their nation's former territory.
  • The New Lithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians expand their South American colony, which they name New Ruthenia, by 25*50 sq km. They found the city of Naujas Minskas, which is selected as the capital of the new colony
  • Naples sends troops to attack the three ports of Turan, to help in the war against the Turks by the
    Indian sale

    What the borders will be if the sale goes through.

    Hungarians. The Neapolitans also send small amounts of troops to Pahang, to stop a revolt there by the Muslim minority. Attempts are made to convert the Muslims to East Asian Christianity or Buddhism. Meanwhile, due to increased Indian nationalist movements in Tamilia, the Neapolitans make one last desperate ploy to hold off the nationalist movements for at least another decade, and offer a territory trade with Bharat. Naples will give Bharat part of Tamilia that is primarily Indo-Aryan in race and language, and Bharat will give Naples a primarily Dravidian part. In addition, Naples will give the Bharatis some ancient Hindu artifacts found in old Malay ruins in Pahang. Will Bharat accept this deal?
    • In order for Bharat to accept the deal, either Godavari should be given to Bharat as a vassal or otherwise or less land should be taken off Bharat.
    • Naples does not control Godavari, and the Dravidian nationalists want as many as possible to be in their land. They state that they will, in return for that land, give not only the land they gave to Bharat in the map and the many ancient Hindu artifacts will be given, but Naples will pay for all costs of the transition as well as pay money equivalent to all the tax money Bharat would have gotten from that area for the next two years.
    • (Then who controls Godavari?) Bharat reluctantly agrees to this, but would still like Godavari.
    • Actually, now that I look at it, Godavari is independent. Govapuri, the northern of the two states that border the Neapolitan territory to the East, is an independent nation, but Collie controls them.
    • Naples sends all of what they promised to send to Bharat, and then begins transferring control of the part of Tamilia they have planned to give to Bharat to the Bharatis and to take control of the part they will gain.
  • Immigration from more advanced Germany has finally taken effect in Neue Brandenburg, as factories (mostly to process timber) are built in NBC and Neue Wilhelmsburg. By 1842 these cities will be connected by a railway. More and more people move to the city when Johann of Hesse decides to begin lead the natives in revolt against the nobles (although he claims he supports the King). The west is more dangerous for settlers, and although the nation expands west by 5000 sq km, more people live in walled towns than plantations. Urbanization continues.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 300 km inward, expands Kōshi by 350 km, expands Sätōri by 300 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 300 km. The Oulu-Tampere-Espoo-Vantaa rail-road is 19/39 done.

The old flag of Finland remains official as well and is to be flown over Finnish Orthodox churches and to represent the Orthodox Finns. The new flag is also used on ships and foreign relations and etc. The old flag is used for Orthodox-related stuff.
  • Burgundy is mourning the death of former chancellor Johann Karl, revered as one of the great francophone nationalists (and burgundian autonomist) throughout France-Burgundy. Now, the progressive parties take power after the death of revered Johann Karl and his conservative party in Burgundian Parliament. Jean-Paul Ribes is the new chancellor in the Burgundian Parliament and swears allegiance to France and Russia. The New Chancellor asked the central government of the Empire (Russian) the entry of more industry in the "Tsardom" of Burgundy. They claim they need more material to withstand economic downturns that have been suffering during the years of Conservative Party. It also gives the claim that the Tsar had the former King of Burgundy Charles II (and also the Emperor of France, Robert) to take the Spanish throne. This claim has two reasons: The expansion in the years 1420-1449 Castilian Empire (now Spain) which linked the Franco-Burgundian dynasties and joined the Castillian throne in Castile and the issue of "Western Algeria", colonized by the Kingdom of Burgundy and later taken by the Spanish. Burgundy founds a new colony in American continent (Mexico), naming it New Burgundy (OTL: Tepic). Pushing it 100 km to the north.
    • Your request is granted. and just out of curiosity, does Burgundy have Salic Law? because Russsia is governed by a woman, and France by her son because of a version of salic law that exists in this game. Whether you have Salic Law or not will determine who rules Burgundy as the head of state. And also, do you mean to say about the Spain part, that Russia can claim the Spanish throne? if so then it will be done very fast, but only after the Kazakhstan incident will be dealt with...Russia sends industrial machines and supplies to aid industrialization within her empire! Also, is the Russian Socialist Party (now in power) asks that the Burgundians pass a law against child labour.
  • China works on quelling the revolts, especially in Changistani Areas. This prompts the Chinese to amp up their police force. Tear gas is used to quell some violent rebellions.

  • The Zeng-Zagráb railway continues to be built, and by this point, is 3/4 completed.The industry expands. Meanwhile, In Egypt, to quell the revolts, the Sultan declares Egypt a sovereign state, thus ceasing to be a vassal of Hungary.

IN this year's Elections, the Socialist vote is split between the Liberals and the Socialists. This makes the mere Regional Party gain the status of Official Party by virtue of gaining 60+ seats. This, however, doesn't stop the Socialists from gaining a majority in this first-past-the-post system, and the industrialists from gaining the Official opposition status by one seat. The results are as follows; Socialists: 242, Industrialists: 64, Liberals: 63, Polish Nationalists: 27, Crimean Nationalists; three, Siberian Nationalists: one (evenkia), Knights of Russia: one. The Socialists are still in the majority.

Meanwhile, the Chinese government's efforts have stopped all the protests except in the West Changistan area, where there are still some.


This is what you get when you ignore moderator events Lx.
Wait, the Islamic revolt was just in the east, how could this happen to all? Even in Changatai when they ... I was okay with letting the east go...oh well, this just means that I have to do the revolt algorithm thing.
If your government had either granted them independence or moved to crush the revolts, it would have stayed in the east, but since your government totally ignored the revolts and did nothing, they spread.
OK, fine, then could somebody do the revolt algorithm, im not that familiar with it...and also, they are already independent, they're just a vassal to Russia.

    • but russia's still winning...and this is using the revolt algorithm, and if I understand correctly (please correct me if I'm wrong), if you win in a revolt algorithm, you get to keep the territory...and unless a lot more people help the fundamentalists...well...Russia wins. thats what I understood about the revolt algorithm (although the one time it was used was Turan and they lost)
    • No, revolt algorithm is different in that if it is a tie, the revolters still lose half their territory. You would still have to get over 33% to take all of it. And even if you reach this level, the amount you win from a war depends on how long it is, so the war might not have been long enough. If we had a stability table, it would be so much easier.

    New-nippon-vietnam-border-deal

    The new border deal Nippon offers Vietnam

    in the Philippines. In return for these borders Nippon will build half of Vietnam's fleet including the latest ironclad ships, and give Vietnam ironclad ship tech too. The refugees in Sokotara leave the refugee camps set up by Nippon too, with some returning to Persia, others back to the Caliphate and some decide to move to Korubia to start a new life. Otherwise Korubia expands by 1800 sq km so that the two parts of the colony are closer together; Satotochi expands by 1000 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands (1000*3) 3000 sq km in the Cape York Peninsula too, as the colony begins to encompass the whole peninsula.
    • The New Lithuanians, who the deal is really for, accept the deal. They note, however, that there should be a small portion of the east coast of the northern island that is under the control of Taiwan.
    • The Vietnamese also accept Nippon's offer.
    • Nippon is unwilling to give any land in the Philippines to Taiwan, but will help Taiwan to modernize her navy and set up a colony somewhere else in the world.
    • The Taiwanese accept the offer, and ask that the Nipponese set up a colony in the OTL Queen Charlotte Islands for the Taiwanese. The Taiwanese will dismantle all of their settlements and resettle them in the new colony.
  • The Turanian-Greek war continues. the armies keep advancing until summer, when Turan surrenders. However, given the Caliphate's presence, it is defined that Turan will be occupied by Greece until the definition of a peace treaty. Given Naples' involvement, the King asks the Neapolitan parliament to decide whether Naples will want any territory. Meanwhile, Rangyóra expands 15,000 sq km inland.
  • The Uruguayans send messages to other nations, asking for recognition of the country. The military expands.
  • Newfoundland recognizes Uruguay's independence, and expand 12,000 sq km inland. Industrialization continues.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. The Oulu-Tampere-Espoo-Vantaa rail-road is 31/39 done. Research for newer/better technology starts up again. The ship ports/harbours in the colony of Sätōri are rebuilt and upgraded after signs started to show that the old ship ports/harbours had weakened. More Shintō shrines and temples are built in Käwäshiro as well.
  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75*75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75*75 sq mi. The Persian Andes colony expands by 75*75 sq mi. They take a census over the religious population of Persia. 58% are Muslims, 41% are Christians and the remaining part falls into other religions.

  • Russian Military continues operations in Kazakhstan, taking the capital city, causing the fundamentalist government to flee southeast. Russian military continues to push against Turan. Russian Colonial settlements on the West coast expand by 3000 km. Industrial workings are not halted because of the war. the new taxation system is in place, as the Socialists declare this a huge victory for the people. Meanwhile, a book similar to the communist manifesto is written by a socialist in Germany named Karl Marx (yet to determining the name of the ideology). This will in due time fracture the Socialist Party into several factions, but not yet.
    • A Vietnamese person already wrote the Collectivist Manifesto, so chances are Mark would expand upon collectivism to make a "Revolutionary Collectivism" or something, so that would be the name.
  • Spain continues upgrading its military. Economy also improves. Agriculture stays static, with a surplus large enough to feed the entire country for two years. So that, in case of an emergency, food can be transported quickly and efficiently, the new government commissions work on an extensive rail system.
  • Sweden expands its navy. Wonderlaand is expanded by 3050 sq km. Sweden takes over the remaining Canadian Arctic Islands.
  • Bharat's factory construction in its vassal slows down as focus is put back on the homeland and the construction of factories all over. The second phase of the railroad construction plan continues. Bharat produces 10 steamships this turn, all for troop transport and freight this year. Naval schools are built to train officers as the navy expands and the army is continuously worked on. The mass conversion project has begun to yield largely favourable results and the mahajhapanas decide to slow down the conversion process so that they can re-establish order in the few areas which might go critical in a year or two. The army which has grown quite powerful by this time has no major problems in establishing control over the areas and things will continue at a slower rate. The colonies receive a bit of the limelight as many Muslims being persecuted head to Australia to set up new lives. Most of these head to New Bharat and help the colony grow nicely this year.
  • Naya Bharat expands 1000 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms begin to produce a small surplus amount which can be sold to other nations or be given to Hindustan.
  • Hindustan expands 550 km north and inward, with better houses built in the main settlement and a small industrial factory set up on the coast. It seems that Hindustan might eventually become the industrial colony of the Bharatis.

They will stay with Vietnam as a client state, but will be taking control of their affairs from Huế. Zhen Chuang is sworn in as the first Chancellor of the independent Republic of Taiwan. A Collectivist party is among the officially recognized political parties in order to prevent a possible Collectivist revolution. The Taiwanese set up a colony in the OTL Queen Charlotte Islands with Nipponese assistance. They name the colony New Taihoku after the county in their homeland.
  • The ICR expands by 1500 km.
  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75*75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75*75 sq mi. The Persian Andes colony expands by 75*75 sq mi. Industrialization is completed in the country. Railroads, modern factories, capitalism, large cities, modern machinery, and new inventions become commonplace across the country. To prevent the support of collectivist ideas, reforms are established to protect workers against poor conditions. Also, anything that promotes collectivism is banned.
    • One of the founding policies of Collectivism is an intensive hatred of royalty, as it is just Communism under a different name. If there are Collectivists in Persia they wouldn't stop until the Shah is dead and replaced with a Collectivist dictator.
    • Not necessarily dictator ... It would be interesting to have a democratic collectivist government which succeeded, at least for a few years.
    • The problem with that statement is that Collectivism, like Communism, has nothing to prevent the rise of a Stalin-type figure. Even if a Collectivist regime starts that way, eventually someone is going to seize absolute power.
    • Collectivism doesn't necessarily necessitate any particular type of government. It would be possible to have a USA-style system of checks and balances within Collectivist culture and economics. It would be difficult to set up, as the old regime would be destroyed and there would be a power vacuum with no 'aristocracy' (somewhat) to step in like the USA. However, it would be interesting to have even a small state undergo a successful Collectivist revolution.
  • Naples continues industrializing, with the first profitable steamships being invented. However, the new working class is sympathetic to the collectivist ideas, so the Neapolitan government bans the collectivist writings within Naples. Istoias is expanded by 1000 sq km.

  • Brunei expands along the eastern coast of Borneo and continues to modernize the military. the Bruneian merchants guild begins to trade in Africa and Australia. Many Hindu nobles move peasants to Sulawesi to exploit resources in that area.
  • Nippon helps Taiwan to set up her colony, and offers an alliance to Taiwan too. All of Nippon proper, is now accessible by rail and the new middle classes and upper classes are the main users of the railways to travel; but the merchants and businesses of Nippon use the railways a lot more, mostly to transport goods around Nippon. More shipyards are built across Nippon too, including the super-sized Kobe Imperial Shipyard which is the largest in the world, and it produces the ironclads Nippon is giving to Vietnam to modernize her navy. Otherwise Nippon continues to expand her colonies with Shuujin expanding north along the coast by 500 sq km, Korubia expands by 1800 sq km so that the two parts of the colony are closer together; Satotochi expands by 500 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands (1000*3) 3000 sq km in the Cape York Peninsula too, as the colony begins to encompass the whole peninsula.
  • Ngainkeha expands inland as more Hathawaddian immigrants enter the country, mostly non-Muslims who don't approve of the new Muslim regime, and Hathawaddians removed from Finland's Käwäshiro colony. Ngainkeha also forms a lucrative trade deal with Chamoru, Nippon and Sunda by supplying them with cattle and other crops which can be easily farmed in Ngainkeha thanks to the abundance of land.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. The Oulu-Tampere-Espoo-Vantaa rail-road is 35/39 done.

    In Russia, the Duma votes on whether or not to put up 100 more Delegates to the Duma. The Vote is passed, increasing the number of Delegates to 501. The Role of the Speaker is changed to a man nominated by the Prime minister, and that is not an elected official (as in the previous 3 Dumas), but a man that leads the discussions but possesses no voting initiative. The Political parties are on the move, and New Potential Delegates are chosen to Run in the Newly created constituencies, ten of the new constituencies being Polish. the number needed for a majority is now 251. Russian military continues actions in Kazakhstan. Industrialization continues as the Assembly line becomes more and more popular. THe Industrialist Party, now running low on Members, tries to run the first ever things resembling modern "attack ads". Meanwhile, in Kiev, A man invents a useful little thing called the telegraph. The Revolutionary collectivist and Collectivist views start slowly being integrated into the Socialist Party. Many new philosophers start making new political theories, like Anarchism, and a more spiritual life. Meanwhile, a smokeless gunpowder is invented by accident, and the possibility of really using rifling, coned bullets, and casings becomes more clear. a better version of the Exploding shell is made and put in use in Russian Naval steamships, which continue construction. Here is a map of the previous Russian Election. the First modern sense of "right" and "left" wing emerge due to the seating of the parties in the Russian Duma, Socialists on the left, Industrialists on the right.
  • More ships are built. Asgard expands 15,250 sq km towards Thorlaand.
  • Bharat's factory construction in its vassal slows down as focus is put back on the homeland and the construction of factories all over. The second phase of the railroad construction plan continues. Bharat produces 10 steamships this turn, some for troop transport and freight while others for purely military this year. Naval schools are built to train officers as the navy expands and the army is continuously worked on. The mass conversion project has continued to yield largely favourable results. The colonies receive a bit of the limelight as many Muslims being persecuted head to Australia to set up new lives. Most of these continue to head to New Bharat and help the colony grow nicely this year.

Principia Moderni Map 1845
Principia Moderni Map 1845 Key
  • Should there not be the potato famine in Ireland?
  • I am guessing that the situation on Ireland by the 19th century, under Vietnamese colonization instead of English, would be different, maybe.
  • The Vietnamese are running a much less oppressive regime in Ireland than in OTL. They have basically realized that they need to keep the Irish on their side, as Vietnam proper is (needless to say) farther from Ireland than England. Not only is the colonial government filled with Irishmen (thus erasing the conditions that created the famine), but the Vietnamese would have sent food from other parts of the Empire if any famine was implied to happen in the future.

Makuria absorbs Islamic Sennar.

  • Naples expands Pahang by 2750 sq km along the coast of Borneo. They remind Brunei that Naples has a territorial claim upon the island (the map is somewhere on the talk page) and not to expand into the Neapolitan areas. Meanwhile, promotion of the metric system and industrialization both continue, as does the movement of refugees into Israel. Naples contacts Bharat, asking the status of the Farsis there, and if the Farsis would like Naples to transport the Israeli Zoroastrian population to Mumbai. Meanwhile, in Tamlia, a few of the native Dravidian people of the peninsula begin to consider a movement for independence.
    • The Farsis have done nothing against Hindus and have never persecuted them unlike other religions and they are all safe and sound living their lives normally. Bharat will allow Naples to ask Farsis if they want to move to Bombay (pretty sure it was Bombay then) and pay for their transport.
    • The majority of the Farsis in Israel wish to join their brethren in Bombay, as they do not want their religion to be diluted across vast distances.
    • The Farsis will be allowed to come to Bombay happily, or they could go to Gujarat where most of the Farsis are based.
  • Ricasolia builds up its military.
  • The ICR expands 1500 km north and south.
  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75*75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75*75 sq mi. The Persian Andes colony expands by 75*75 sq mi. They absorb all former Shahzrur states that have asked for protection after the country's break-up.

They build a railway from the capital in Taipei to the main port of Takao. A new native language starts taking form in Taiwan. It is a combination of Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and the more extensive of the native Formosan languages.
  • Neue Brandenburg expands west by 6000 sq km. The year marks the death of King Willem I of Neue Brandenburg, and the end of 40 years of absolute monarchy. Although the new King Willem II is just as conservative, many new city dwellers demand some power. The new King has the support of the army, but the court forces them to grant a constitution and a diet. The new diet asks for a military alliance with Russia, because of the socialist leaderships, and begins to implement economic reforms. However, at the end of the year the King dismisses the Diet, angering many, and imprisoned Johann of Hesse, who had returned to NBC. Finally, people from Neue Wilhelmsburg to NBC to Laskreng mourn the death of a (somewhat) beloved monarch.
    • The Russians agree to the alliance.
  • Brunei states they are a independent nation and that if Naples wants all of their claimed territory there just going to expand faster. Brunei expands Sulawesi colony and expands along the eastern coastline of Borneo.
    • Naples states that Brunei expanding upon Neapolitan land claims in Borneo is tantamount to them taking Neapolitan land. It is not Naples' fault Brunei's government was too weak to hold itself together and couldn't attend the conference. Its not Naples' fault that Brunei did not get to claim more land.
    • Things have changed seen the conference and you have more than enough land and areas to expand into but if Brunei doesn't have a strong hold on Borneo Bruneian sovereignty could be threatened and we do not need your permission to expand into an area you don't control so we will do so without it.
    • The Vietnamese, while stating that they will not enter any potential war resulting from this conflict, state that they agree with the Bruneians. They state that, as Brunei has not stolen land directly controlled by Naples, they have no right to impose their will upon them.
    • If Brunei can take Naples' claims from the conference, than any other claims made by any nations in that conference are hereby invalid, as they can all be taken away from them. Naples states that it regards any nation that supports Brunei taking lands claimed by Naples as giving up their own claims over any unclaimed territory in the Indonesia area. Any nation that states that Naples cannot expand into uncontrolled land that another nation has claims in thereby must allow nations to expand into areas which they claim but do not control. To say otherwise is hypocrisy.
    • The Vietnamese agree to the Neapolitan statements, saying that they with avoid interfering with Neapolitan business from now on. They however still insist that it is unfair to hold Brunei accountable to a treaty they had not signed themselves. They request that the Neapolitans negotiate their issues with Brunei.
  • The Zeng-Zagráb railway is finished. Meanwhile, in Greece, King Thomas dies, and is succeeded by his son Constantine, crowned as Constantine XIII.

However, Nippon shows reluctance in getting involved in another military conflict, and offers to act as mediator in this matter. Otherwise Korubia expands by 1800 sq km so that the two parts of the colony are closer together; Satotochi expands by 1000 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands (1000*3) 3000 sq km in the Cape York Peninsula too, as the colony begins to encompass the whole peninsula.
    • Naples states that Persia's actions have no influence over them. Persia elected to give up its claim, Naples will not. In order for Naples to respect the claims given out in the Rotterdam Conference, they expect all nations who participated in the conference to back them on this issue. If Naples' claims can be rendered invalid and stolen from them, then so can the claims of any other nation that took part of that conference.
  • Ngainkeha expands inland as more Hathawaddian immigrants enter the country, and Nai O is elected as First Minister of Ngainkeha in the first democratic elections in Ngainkeha since her independence, mostly because Nai O ruled so well before as the Nipponese appointed native ruler of Ngainkeha. The first Ngainkeha parliament is elected too, and they are housed in the new Parliament building in Naagonikyo (OTL Sydney) causing Naagonikyo to be formally declared as the new capital of Ngainkeha.
  • France builds up its military. Charles Louis starts a new campaign of propaganda of his new ideologies, based on classism and collectivism, but also in Marx's manifesto. In the Parliament the same system of the Russian Duma is adopted, and the party of Chales-Louis, led by Achille Murat, called the Beauharnist Party (the ideology is implemented by the member of the family) of France. Some propaganda of this party spreads in Russia, and Murat tries to contact Marx and some other collectivist and classists (this last ones are founded in the Russian colonies that are close to the Caribbean Alliance), trying to convince them to create a similar party in Russia.
  • The Caliphate accepts the Hungarian offer. Also Algeria expands 7750 sq km inland. The Caliph Ismail of Riyadh sends some more troops to help Egypt to keep order.

Naval schools are built to train officers as the navy expands and the army is continuously worked on. The mass conversion project has continued to yield largely favourable results. In many areas, unrest has died down as the population is now converted into Hinduism. The remaining Muslims start to feels as outcasts and because of this he colonies receive a bit of the limelight as many Muslims being persecuted head to Australia to set up new lives. Most of these continue to head to New Bharat.
  • Naya Bharat expands 550 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms begin to produce a small surplus amount which can be sold to other nations or be given to Hindustan.

He lectures at many universities across the nation. Also, a rubber band is invented by a creative Korean scientist on March 11, the stretchy band that can hold things together. Also, the Korean Scientific Journal begins publication, started by a bunch of enthusiastic college graduates from the University of Seoul. Finally, anesthesia begins to be used in childbirth, to reduce the pain during labor and the birth itself.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. The Oulu-Tampere-Espoo-Vantaa rail-road is 39/39 done and is tested. Improvements are need to be made so it is being improved. It should be ready by next year.
  • Prussia continues with infrastructure work and the railways extent across most of the nation. An alliance is offered to the Scandinavians in order to improve relations and prevent any wars or conflict in the near future.

Sweden will also send Prussia blueprints for ironclads of which Sweden produce three more of in this year. The small Canadian Arctic Isles are taken and Asgard expands 15250 sq km toward Thorlaand.

1846

  • Naples expands Pahang by 2750 sq km into Borneo. The Neapolitan government states that any nation which supports Brunei in expanding into unsettled lands under Neapolitan claim hearby will not have any of their claims on unsettled land held valid by the Neapolitans. They state that if Brunei expands onto Neapolitan-claimed lands, then the entire Rotterdam Conferance, and all other agreements and treaties regarding the division of uncontrolled land, are hearby invalid and nations can expand however they want with no respect for other nations claims. They state that stopping the Brunei expansion into Neapolitan lands must occur, in order to send a signal to the world that land claims are to be respected. If Brunei succeeds, no nation will be able to make another claim over land they do not control. Meanwhile, most of the Israeli Zoroastrians, about 10,000 in total, travel to Bombay in Bharat to join the Parsis there. The Neapolitan government pays for their transport.

    • Naples states that as long as Brunei does not attempt to expand into Neapolitan claims, they bear Brunei no ill will, and that Naples will let Brunei have free trade with the colony of Pahang.
    • Brunei agrees to the trade agreement.
  • Neue Brandenburg wishes to reaffirm their alliance with Prussia in the event of an invasion of Brandenburg, and offer their full support. Meanwhile, a railroad between NBC and Wilhelmsburg is begun. Industrialization continues, with cities growing. After international pressure, Johann of Hesse is released, but dies soon afterwords. Wilhelm II redoubles the crackdown on the natives, and begins to move many to special work camps. Many take to the jungles, to begin a guerrilla war, but in response clearcutting continues and the nation expands by 6000 sq km. In a fit of rage, the King breaks off all ties with Russia (please don't be offended or intervene, he will die in a couple of years and the alliance will be restored. It's just a really reactionary monarch).
    • Prussia agrees.
  • China expands its military greatly. The proposal to join Korean and Chinese railroads is accepted.
  • In Nippon a very large funeral possession passes through Kyoto after Emperor Ninkō's death, and Emperor Ninkō is buried at Sennyū-ji. Prince Osahito, fourth son of the deceased Emperor Ninkō, ascends to the Chrysanthemum Throne as Emperor Kōmei of Nippon. Emperor Kōmei pushes the Shogun to enact medical reform so that better health care is offered to the people of Nippon, after seeing some of the poor medical treatment given to his recently deceased father.

  • Korea thanks the Chinese for accepting their offer, and construction begins right away. Meanwhile, the planet Neptune is discovered by two Korean astronomers, and is named 해왕성 (Hyeng-Wang-Song). Also, the sewing machine is invented by a Korean engineer, who was looking for a way to mass produce clothing. Meanwhile, the rotary printing press is also invented, and is used to mass produce newspapers, books, pamphlets, etc. Also, another Korean scientist invents the "Morse telegraph", which uses a simple code of dots and dashes to send messages. (Is it okay for me to steal inventions like this? Cause no one else is claiming 'em, so .... :D)

  • Bharat's factory construction in its vassal continues and the construction of factories all over is helping to increase industrial output. The second phase of the railroad construction plan continues. Bharat produces its first ironclad with great success, and the ironclad is as big as the battleships constructed, making it huge. Naval schools are built to train officers as the navy expands and the army is continuously worked on. The mass conversion project has continued to yeild largely favourable results and as the population is now converted into Hinduism, the demolition of mosques can begin with no major objections. The remaining Muslims continue to migrate to the colonies in Australia to set up new lives. Most of these continue to head to New Bharat.
  • Naya Bharat expands 1000 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms contine to produce a small surplus amount.
  • Hindustan expands 550 km south and inward, with better houses built in the main settlement and another small industrial factory set up on the coast.

1847

  • The Vietnamese expand their East Africa colony westwards by 76*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue to expand industries through out their empire. The Vietnamese assist the Kenians in recovering more of their nation's former territory. Collectivism is outlawed in the Vietnamese Empire, but that doesn't prevent the movement from going underground. The movement especially takes hold in the founder's home of Ireland, who still resent the far-off government of Vietnam.
  • The New Lithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians expand their New Ruthenia colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians continue improving their native industry.
  • The Taiwanese expand their New Taihoku colony by 16*50 sq km. The Taiwanese continue expanding their industry to catch up with their neighbors.
  • Naples expands Bornean Pahang by 2750 sq km.
  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75*75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75*75 sq mi. The Persian Andes colony expands by 75*75 sq mi. The new Islamic shah rises to power, who asks for a worldwide Islamic Empire. They call for the Mecca Caliphate to join the country (and possibly Kazakhstan if it gains independence, but won't intefere in the conflict to prevent Russian aggression).
  • China expands its military.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. Kata Pöysti, a lady, manages to discover the continent of Etelämanner (OTL Antarctica) and soon tells Finland about it.
  • Prussia continues the occupation of Brandenburg with Swedish help accepted, and stability is improved in the controlled areas.
  • Innovation and science continue to flourish in Korea, with the Revolver being invented. The revolver does not need to reload after every shot, and catches on very quickly to the general population. The government purchases the designs for the revolver from Kim Yoo-Jin, the inventor. Meanwhile, factories continue to be built, and telegraph lines start to go up. Telegraphs quickly gain popularity, and the Korean government asks to make a deal with the Russians: We will share technology for the next ten years, and Korea will give them the territory they won from Pahang. Therefore, it will be mutually beneficial to both nations.
  • Brunei annexes the two small islands off the northern coast of Borneo and rail lines continue to be layed. the Sulawesi colony is expanded toward the interior of the island and more naval vessels are built.
  • Newfoundland expands 12,000 sq km. The industry expands.
  • Hungary's industry continues growing.by this time, the Greek territory starts to be reorganized into new theme and bandon, with the Cypriot theme being created, although the proccess only will end in the next year. Magyar Dél-Amerikabán expands 15,000 sq km inland.
  • Egypt continues updating its military.
  • Uruguay starts to update its military, and the country expands north by 4000 sq km.
  • Nippon continues to fund medical research, with a young doctor from Osaka called Kōichi Shidōu finding fame, after he conducted a series of researches including looking how people who drank from polluted wells and rivers got ill, whereas those who drank from clean water didn't; he then showed how when people have smallpox, those who come into close contact with the person infected with smallpox would be more likely to get smallpox themselves. He then combined his findings, the work of Marcus Terentius Varro and Antonie van Leeuwenhoek and his own thoughts into his thesis about Micro-organisms and how some of them seem to spread disease. He calls these disease spreading micro-organisms Sukoshini. Dr. Kōichi Shidōu points out that the Sukoshini are too small to travel great distances so they must be carried around by larger creatures to further spread their illnesses; and that they like to breed in dirty polluted places. He concludes in his thesis that the Sukoshini eat the creatures they are living on, and their blood is poisonous so when they eat the other creatures their blood poisons the creatures causing them to get the symptoms of illnesses. Otherwise Korubia expands by 1800 sq km so that the two parts of the colony are closer together; Satotochi expands by 1000 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands (1000*3) 3000 sq km in the Cape York Peninsula too, as the colony begins to encompass the whole peninsula.
  • Ngainkeha expands inland as more Hathawaddian immigrants enter the country, and Ngainkeha also establishes a trade deal with the neighbouring aborigine nation (I tried looking for its name and it wasn't given) so the aborigine goods could be sold across the world.
  • A diplomatic union is set up with the loose tribes of the Inuit and Eskimos that inhabit the northern reaches of Canada and Alaska with Sweden helping to form a nation for them that stretches from Alaska to Thorlaand north of the railway. All Swedish lands on the Canadian Arctic Islands are ceded to the Inuit-Eskimo Confederation. The confederation soon incorporates most of OTL Yukon, Northwest Territory and Eastern Alaska as many tribes sign on. Sweden builds a capital for them at OTL Yellowknife. Wonderlaand expands 3050 sq km onto the coasts of the last two uncolonized Solomon Islands.
  • Russia expands further into Alaska. Russian Military ends operations in Kazakhstan and the KAzakhs agree to once again be the vassals of Russia (This is because the Algorithm was not done! I don't feel like having a 10 year war!). Industry booms, and telegraph lines are set up in Moscow, as the Russians agree to the Korean deal for the revolver.
  • Bharat's factory construction in its vassal and homeland finishes and factories churn out huge amounts of iron, cotton as well as steamships and ironclads. The second phase of the railroad construction plan is almost completed, and the railroad project should be completed by next year. Bharat produces three more ironclads and five major steamships, beginning the era in which Bharat's navy emerges. Enough naval schools have been build and many civilians are press-ganged to serve on naval ships while many of the educated class attend naval schools and the army is continuously worked on. The mass conversion project has continued to yield largely favourable results, with the demolition of mosques beginning. The remaining Muslims continue to migrate to the colonies in Australia to set up new lives. Most of these continue to head to New Bharat. Bharat opens up its border with Persia after its closure many years before, however only for fleeing Hindus. No emigrating Muslims will be allowed in and the alliance with Persia is cut, although trading will still continue.
  • Naya Bharat expands 550 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms contine to produce a small surplus amount.
  • Hindustan expands 1000 km south and inward, with better houses built in the main settlement and another small industrial factory set up on the coast.

1848

  • The Vietnamese expand their East Africa colony westwards by 76*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue to expand industries through out their empire. The Vietnamese assist the Kenians in recovering more of their nation's former territory. The Vietnamese see the latest Nipponese discovery as confirmation for their tradition for comprehensive sanitation. The Vietnamese take the opportunity to establish official areas for the disposal of garbage known as "dumps". These areas are selected because they are far away from water or food sources to prevent contamination.
  • The New Lithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians expand their New Ruthenia colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians continue improving their native industry.
  • The Taiwanese expand their New Taihoku colony by 16*50 sq km. The Taiwanese continue expanding their industry to catch up with their neighbors.
  • Naples expands their Pahangese colony 2750 sq km, helped now by the small steamship portion of their navy. Steamships are becoming more and more common, and many predict they will replace old wooden ships soon. In Tamilia, protests emerge against the Neapolitans for small economic issues. The Neapolitan government violently puts down the protest. This results in riots, which are again put down.
  • Ricasolia improves its economy.
  • Nippon increases the amount of mining being done in the colonies, as well as growing the Nipponese timber industry. Dr. Kōichi Shidōu following the success of his thesis begins a study in the spread of Smallpox, and trying to work out ways to stop the deadly disease from spreading so much. The good doctor stumbles upon something unexpected after he notices different animals react differently to being injected with the blood of people with smallpox, and he concludes that different species of animals have different tolerances to diseases, after he infects the animals with other diseases to test his hypothesis; Dr. Kōichi Shidōu however doesn't know why animals have different tolerances though. Otherwise Korubia expands by (1800*3) 5,400 sq km so that the two parts of the colony are closer together; Satotochi expands by 1000 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands (1000*3) 3000 sq km in OTL New Guinea island.
  • Ngainkeha expands inland more and Ngainkeha offer to sell there territory on Kangaroo Island to Spain in order to finance the building of Buddhist temples and schools across Ngainkeha.
  • The ICR expands by 1500 sq km.
  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75*75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75*75 sq mi. The Persian Andes colony expands by 75*75 sq mi. They ask Brunei for a dynstic union.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. Finland, now just realising this, also warns Brunei about their colony, as it is expanding into Finnish claimed areas they wanted in the Rotterdam Conference. Finland also warns that any supporter of their expansion will have their claims unrecognised, and hints the use of pirates/raiders as well.
  • Hungary's economy continues growing. Meanwhile, King György dies in April, and only has one daughter, Olga, who is three years old. Given this, his older sister Szidónia is asked to become a regent until 1866, but she refuses. The offer is then passed to her younger sister Amália, which subsequently, accepts and is crowned Queen Regent of Hungary in July. Magyar Dél-Amerikabán expands 15,000 sq km inland.
  • Egypt updates its military.
  • Uruguay expands 4000 sq km north.
  • Newfoundland expands 12,000 sq km inland.
  • Brunei is not bound by the Rotterdam conference and has held territory in Sulawesi for years. Brunei regrets the dynastic union with Persia fearing this with take away to much Bruneian sovereignty but sends Persia a trade agreement. Brunei expands its holdings on Borneo away from Neapolitan areas but continues to expand the Sulawesi colony and begins construction on several coastal forts to protect Bruneian interests in the area.
  • Korea continues to industrialize (Sorry, no time for long posts).
  • Sweden supports Finland in the diplomatic row with Brunei an sends a task force to Brunei threatening to blockade the nation and bomb the Imperial Palace. Brunei is allowed the Persian claims only in the Rotterdam Conference as according to the Swedish High Council and any claims on Sulawesi are therefore invalid, The Inuit Eskimo confederation expands southwards as more tribes sign on and also arrives on the Alaskan west coast. Sweden expands its navy and Wonderlaand expands 15,250 sq km over the interior of the two islands remaining in the Solomon chain.
  • Fjordlaand expands north.
  • Russia continues their expansion into Alaska, as well as Aiding to Establish a system of alliances withing the Aleutians, gaining their favor, with an eventual plan of creating an Aleutian Oblast (or just a plain republic). Military is updated, as certain parties begin their campaigns. The last of the Founders of the Industrialists die this year, prompting leadership debates. After much deliberation, the Senate passes legislature posing the minimum monthly wage as cost of living (survival) plus 20%, making it 12 rubles a month. This policy is very much liked by the general urban poor. Collectivism and Marxism spread within the Socialist Party. Mesheryakov thinks about Charles-Louis' offer, and an alliance between Leftist organizations will work indeed. the Ideas of Public healthcare begin to emerge, but are ignored due to budgetary problems. A bill requiring the government to submit a budget every year is approved by the Duma, but shot down in the Imperial Council. Industrialization, building or the Trans-Siberian Railway continues and the IWD develops a type of rifle that loads cartridges much like the revolver (but this one is one-shot)
  • Bharat's second phase of the railroad construction is completed and all smaller hubs of Bharat are now linked up with the main cites of the country. Bharat produces four more ironclads and five major steamships. The army is continuously worked on and the army is used to patrol the nation to crackdown on any suspicious activity due to "the project". The mass conversion project has continued to yield largely favourable results, with the demolition of mosques continuing. The remaining Muslims continue to migrate to the colonies in Australia to set up new lives. Most of these continue to head to New Bharat. The opening of the border has enabled Hindus to come to Bharat in the thousands. Most of these then head to the colonies, mainly Hindustan where they can begin a new life in peace.
  • Naya Bharat expands 1000 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms continue to produce a small surplus amount.
  • Hindustan expands 550 km south and inward, with fleeing Hindus from Persia arriving and another small industrial factory set up on the coast.

1849

  • The Vietnamese expand their East Africa colony westwards by 76*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue to expand industries through out their empire. The Vietnamese assist the Kenians in recovering more of their nation's former territory.
  • The New Lithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians expand their New Ruthenia colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians continue improving their native industry.
  • The Taiwanese expand their New Taihoku colony by 16*50 sq km. The Taiwanese continue expanding their industry to catch up with their neighbors.
  • Neue Brandenburg expands west by 6000 sq km. Expansion is matched (almost) by a huge immigration rate, largely from Germany. Luis Keller is arrested in Wilhelmsburg and brought to NBC. Weltanschaaung raises an uproar, and by the end of the year has 10,000 members. Wilhem II is forced to withdraw his hardline policies, and after barely surviving an assassination attempt (and finding out that his minister-president is a member of Weltanshaaung), he gives in, and summons the estates-general. He re-establishes the alliance with Russia, apologizing for ending it, and send troops to Brandenburg to place it under the control of the Prussian King. He still, however, refuses to release Keller, leading to the new immigrants in NBC and Wilhelmsburg voting to create their own assembly, called the Volkstag. Much of the military is friendly to the Volkstag, and so the latter are able to create a police force and workhouses for the poor, which the King is powerless to stop. In fear, he orders the nobles to form a militia to defend the countryside.
  • Seeing all the diplomatic tensions with Brunei between Finland and Naples, Nippon suggests clearly showing Brunei what land is claimed by other nations, and then showing where is unclaimed and helping Brunei establish claims to these unclaimed lands. The Shogun see's the Vietnamese policy of "dumps" and the research of Dr. Kōichi Shidōu, and enact the 1849 Public Health Act. This act creates dumps just like the ones in Vietnam, and river pollution becomes a crime. Furthermore, factory chimneys are required to be as high as possible so the smog is blown away by the wind, rather than creating a smog which would pollute the city. Otherwise Korubia expands by (1800*3) 5400 sq km so that the two parts of the colony are closer together; Satotochi expands by 1000 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands (1000*3) 3000 sq km in OTL New Guinea island.
    • PM Australasian expansion3
      All Persian claims in Borneo have been sold to Brunei, non-Bornean Persian claims are still claimed by Persia.
  • Ngainkeha expands inland more and Ngainkeha sells there territory on Kangaroo Island to Spain in order to finance the building of Buddhist temples and schools across Ngainkeha. (Note: I'm just giving Kangaroo Island to Spain, I don't want it as it looks daft Ngainkeha randomly owning that bit.)
  • Naples expands their Pahangese territory by 2750 sq km onto Borneo. Meanwhile, protests continue in Tamilia, and the Neapolitan government's popularity has reached an all time low. The steamship production continues.
    • Is Tamilia going to start an independence movement soon? If so, then Vietnam may want to support them, as the whole Borneo incident may have chilled Vietnamese relations with Naples somewhat.
  • Brunei agrees to sell the Sulawesi colony as long as the Finns agree to help relocate the Bruneians to a new colony. Brunei expands south and east the navy preps for war in case the deal with Finland falls through. Bruneian infrastructure and industry are improved.
    • Finland agrees to Brunei's deal and will help relocate the Bruneians to a new colony, and Finland gives 115,000 Finnish Markka to Brunei as well.
  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75x75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75x75 sq mi. The Persian Andes colony expands by 75x75 sq mi. They establish a new colony in Southern Borneo, named New Isafan in OTL Manjarmasin.
    • Didn't you give up the rest of the Persian claim to Borneo to Brunei in the sale? And Persia already has a big claim on Australia, maybe you should work on expanding that instead of expanding in an area where there are lots of territorial conflicts
    • New Persia is in Australia, so it is being settled. Also, I only GAVE UP Persian Brunei, not the Persian claims of Borneo.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km.
  • The industry continues growing. Magyar Dél-Amerikabán expands 15,000 sq km inland.
  • Egypt updates its military.
  • Uruguay expands 4000 sq km north.
  • Newfoundland expands 12,000 sq km inland.
  • Bharat produces four more ironclads and five major steamships. The army is continuously worked on and the army is used to patrol the nation to crackdown on any suspicious activity due to "the project". The mass conversion project has continued to yeild largely favourable results, with the demolition of mosques continuing. The remaining Muslims continue to migrate to the colonies in Australia to set up new lives. Most of these continue to head to New Bharat. The opening of the border has enabled Hindus to come to Bharat in the thousands and they then head to the colonies, mainly Hindustan where they can begin a new life in peace. The continuous work on the army is tested, and to support the Tamilian uprisings, the army launches a full-scale invasion of Napolian India. They ask for Vietnamese and Nipponese aid.
  • Naya Bharat expands 550 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms contine to produce a small surplus amount.
  • Hindustan expands 1000 km south and inward, with fleeing Hindus from Persia arriving and another small industrial factory set up on the coast.
  • France builds up its military.
  • Algeria expands 7750 sq km inland.
  • Nouvelle-France builds up its military.
  • Haiti builds up its military.
  • Malouinas builds up its military.
  • Ricasolia's population undergoes a population boom. The government works to fight corruption and to improve food production to feed the increasing population. The religious revival is now over, with almost all Ricasolians being members of the Caribbean Church. The Caribbean Church absorbs the Waldensian Church of Isolque as well, and asks the Itsaygahis if they can send missionaries there.
  • Spain thanks Ngainkeha for the part of Kangaroo Island. Construction on the raill network continues apace, with many large cities now linked together. several lines are built side by side, to allow for rapid transportation of cargo, and also the slower progress of passenger trains. Spain embarks on a project to upgrade its navy, attempting to reduce Sweden's lead over the rest of the world. The military is upgraded, and the government works to further improve the economy. New Madrid expands by 4650 Sq Km.
  • Russia updates its military, and expansion continues into Alaska. Attempts are made to strengthen the alliances in the Aleuts to from a nation. the Aleutan Islands are claimed for Russia. Mesheryakov calls for elections next year. campeigning begins on both sides. The first signs of fracturing within the SPRE begin emering. South Novorossiya expands by 15 000 km. The cartrige rifle becomes standard issure for Russian troops. Construction oin the Trans-Siberian railroad continues.
  • Sweden continues upgrading its navy and launches the HMSS Sweden the largest ship ever built and with the largest cannons and guns ever installed on a ship. The steel plating of the ship is thickest ever and the ship is a benemoth of the seas. It sails to Asgard where the Russian influence is seen as dangerous. The Inuit-Eskimo Conferation expands to incorparate the eastern half of OTL Alaska. Asgard expands 3050 sq km down the Aleutians.
    • Do you realise how implausible that is? the population I would give them is maximum 5000, and that's being generous. this is a nomadic people. In quebec i took extremely inhuman tactics to make them sedentary, with extreme determination and descriminaiton, and that took about 10 years. It would be extremely implausible to have those nomads (that travel in no more than in groups of a couple dozen people) form a confederatoin and then expand to incorporate Yukon and Alaska in two years! I could do that for the Iroquois because the framework for that confederation already existed, and all that it needed was centralisation. No nomadic peoples will ever evolve into a nation-state in less than a year. it takes generations to do that naturally, and a decade to do that with determinaiton.

Principia Moderni Map 1850
Principia Moderni Map 1850 Key
Again, Ngainkeha has not been expanded.

Neither has Russian Alaska, and for some reason Kazakhstan has been changed to independent, even after the Russians spend approx. ten years (I gave up after not having the normal stability, I'm sorry, but 11 makes sense since industrialization counts as economic development, and was also posted two days after I gave up) getting it back to vassal!

Industrialization is not counted as economic expansion for two reasons. It is indirect and hard to qualify. Plus a few nations would be on 60 stability rendering this table null.

I asked a question a while back, and well, we decided that industrial expansion counts. it's in one of the Russian war algorithm discussions. probably the first Polish one or around that. And also, there is no table to render null.

Nortical fishing is underestimated for humankind.

1 - Ngainkeha expanded. But just for three years, as I added expansion in 1840-1845 and forgot the rest. I will correct it.

2 - I forgot to check who won the Russia-Kazakhstan algorithm, and the last time that i had checked, Kazakhstan was winning.

Kazakhs were winning because they had all filled out and Russia didn't have their stability filled out. After stability was put then Russia got their stabitity we winning.

Bruneian borders have expanded since 1845.

  • Naples declares war upon Bharat for attacking their colony of Tamilia. They declare the Bharatis the aggressors and that Naples is the victim, and they state that all of their allies, and all good Catholic nations, should aid Naples in putting an end to this war. The Tamilian independence groups, which are now armed and own much of the colony, announce that they recognize the Maharaja of Bharat as the ruler of all the Indian subcontinent. They ask the two former Hungarian colony nations to the west to join in the war. The Pahangese colony expands by 2750 sq km into Borneo.
    • Bharat supplies the Tamilians with as many weapons as they can and sets about trying to capture the ports under the control of Naples. They also try to swing the two former Hungarian vassals to battle the Neapolitans.
  • The Vietnamese expand their East Africa colony westwards by 76*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue to expand industries through out their empire. The Vietnamese assist the Kenians in recovering more of their nation's former territory. The Vietnamese declare that they officially recognize Tamilian independence, and declare that India should be returned to the Indians. While the Vietnamese will not enter the war directly at this point, they will send plenty of supplies and volunteers for the Bharatis and their Tamilian allies. While they do not directly cease diplomatic relations with the Neapolitans they will unofficially "encourage" Vietnamese merchants to cease trade with Naples. They hardly need to "encourage" people at all, as the popular image of the Neapolitans has become thoroughly negative in Vietnam. Most of the Vietnamese think that the Neapolitans are following in the footsteps of the hated Venetians.
  • The New Lithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians expand their New Ruthenia colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians continue improving their native industry.
  • The Taiwanese expand their New Taihoku colony by 16*50 sq km. The Taiwanese continue expanding their industry to catch up with their neighbors.
  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75x75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75x75 sq mi. The Persian Andes colony expands by 75x75 sq mi. New Isafan expands by 25x25 sq mi north. They ask Bharat and Naples for a peace agreement.
    • The Neapolitans state that they will accept no peace but a Bharati surrender.
    • Persian response: It sends an ultimatum to Naples that if it cannot work out an agreement with Bharat withing two years, Persia will join Bharat, and will bring Russia and China into the war.
  • Ricasolia's population continues to grow.
  • Seeing as Naples has bigger fish to fry than who claims what on Borneo and Brunei is now threatened by Persia Brunei expands rapidly along the western coastline of Borneo and deep into central Borneo. Brunei with Finnish help establishes a colony in the Mascarene Islands.
  • Neue Brandenburg sees a revolution when the cities rise up on the side of Luis Keller and Weltanshaaung, who have began expounding collectivist ideals. King Wilhelm II is trapped in his palace and surrenders, only to have many of the Progressive Army (as the Volksbund's military are called) defect, and in a daring escape Wilhelm leads them over into a noble's headquarters in the west. Industrialization continues as the cities are put on a war footing. Both sides ask for foreign intervention on their side from their allies Russia, Finland, Prussia, Naples, and Nippon. The war, it seems, could go either way by the end of the year.
    • Nippon sends aid to help stop the collectivists
    • Finland also send aid in support of King Wilhelm II, and to stop the collectivists.
  • Nai O & her party are once again voted into power in Ngainkeha, thanks to the good rule in the last five years. Nai O decides to send military aid to Bharat in order to get rid of the foreign imperialists from the Indian subcontinent. However after Nai O used this reasoning to go help Bharat, many of the Ngainkeha people began to question why Ngainkeha is subordinate to a foreign power, and calls for full independence began to surface.
  • Nippon's Shogun Tokugawa Ieyoshi is worried about the recent Ngainkeha calls for independence, and the Shogunate is split over how to deal with the matter, if Ngainkeha did ask for independence would Nippon allow it or oppose it? To make matters worse, thanks to all the political talk about the Ngainkeha problem, liberal politicians notice the much larger amount of political freedom and democracy in Ngainkeha opposed to the ruling feudal military dictatorship of the Shogun in Nippon. People then begin to question this, and calls in Nippon for more political freedom, spread across the land. Fearing a rebellion, Shogun Tokugawa Ieyoshi declares Nipponese neutrality in any current wars, in order to save military force to deal with the potential rebellion. Otherwise Korubia expands by (1,800*3) 5,400 sq km, Satotochi expands by (1,000*3) 3,000 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands (1,000*3) 3,000 sq km in OTL New Guinea island.
  • China expands its Mexico colony northwards towards its Baja colony by 3800 sq km.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. Finland sends military aid to help Bhārat against Naples. The daughter draws Suomi-neito kicking Neapolitans and the giant shoe (which is in the shape of the Naples land on OTL Italian Peninsula) out of Bhārat with the description "Ainoa asia, joka Napoliset potkaisee ulos on itsestään." (Finnish for: The only thing that Neapolitans will kick out is themselves.). Meanwhile, the Republic of Kazami only sends supplies to Bhārat for help in their war against Naples.
  • Govapuri refuses to help, as they fear that they will be annexed by Bharat if Naples lose. Just in case, the military is updated.
  • Kalikut agrees to the Neapolitan offer, but sends only supplies.
  • Egypt updates its military.
  • In Hungary, more cities undergo through a urbanization process. Meanwhile, Queen Amalia declares support for Naples, but fearing that the Hungarian forces are outdated, only sends supplies, while Kandy takes the same position of Govapuri, and refuses to send help, though they allow Neapolitan ships to stop there. Meanwhile, Kandy and Hungary updates their militaries. Meanwhile, the metric system continues to gain influence in Hungary, and another act is proposed to officialize the metric system, this time accepted, with a project to officialize the metric system by 1860. Meanwhile, in Greece, a propaganda campaign is undertaken in Cyprus and the newly-conquered Turanian territories, with the objective of preventing revolts on those areas. However, Turkic is recognized as a co-official language. Magyar Dél-Amerikabán expands 15,000 sq km inland.
  • Egypt updates its military.
  • Uruguay expands 4000 sq km north. The industry grows.
  • Korea continues to industrialize, setting down railroads, building factories, and more. Gas lights now fill Seoul and other industrial areas, lighting the night. Meanwhile, research on an incandescent light bulb commences, in order to light the night even better and to not use up so much gas. They declare neutrality in the Naples conflict, although they will send supplies to Naples. Meanwhile, the Busan University is opened, being one of the most prestigious in Korea. Also, Seoul reaches 600,000 inhabitants. Also, the Lee Watchmaking Company is created, creating quality watches for everyone around the world. Also, they share the light bulb research with Russia, because of the agreement to share technology.
  • Charles-Louis spreads propaganda in Russia encouraging the socialists to adopt his ideologies. He meets with Mesheryakov and tells him that, when Paul becomes emperor of Russia too, he's planning on unify both the French Parliament and the Russian Duma and, if Mesheryakov accepts Charles' ideal, then his party will count with the support of at least a half of the French population. Nouvelle-Normandie expands again 7750 sq km to Onguayal.

  • The occupation of Haiti by French forces plus the naming of Achille Murat as Imperial Regent auguments the French influence in the American affairs. Achille aks Itsaygahi, Ricasolia and Isloque if they would recognise him as Emperor of Haiti and accept France as member, or at least ally, of the Classist Alliance. Achille is the son of Joachim Murat, the known French military, who, during his short rule, implemented some classist policies. He's also an adopted member of the Beauharnais family, the classists aristocratic family par excellence.
  • Nouvelle-France builds up its military. Belcher sends ambassadors to spread classism.
  • Malouians builds up its military. The prince Maximilien travels to Vietnam and decides to create his own branch of classism based also in the Vietnamese collectivism. He's very close to both Murat and Charles-Louis.

Sweden expands its navy and Wonderlaand expands 3050 sq km on the coast of the last remaining Solomon Island. The railway to Finland is finished and an extension to Murmansk is planned.
    • Do you realise how implausible that is ... I just have to fight fire with fire. This nation is so implausible, that vast territory can just be counteracted by one Russian invasion, and all will be taken in one year. there is o way that those nomads, living in groups of 40 or so people could form a nation that fast, or even expand it for that matter!
  • Fjordlaand expands to the Onguayal border.
  • Military research continues and Scientific research as well. In the recent Russian Elections, the Socialists once again win the elections, now putting Mescheryakov's total mandate to 13 years. Mesheryakov considers Charles' request. But in this election, the Socialists gain only a slim majority of 264 seats, the rest gone to the Polish and Liberal parties. the Industrialists are reduced to a 20-seat membership, taken by the liberals. they think about how to turn themselves around, or get destroyed. The Polish party wins 45/50 Polish seats. the Aleuts form a nations in the remaining parts of Alaska and part of the west coast. The Empress Maria gets sick, and suffers from extreme pain, and some sorts of hallucinations.
    • Read what I posted on the talk page ... The nation is too big on the map. It is way smaller on the mainland. Collie took the claims and posted it as the reality. They only occupy the Arctic Islands and the northern coast of Canada, a little inland area of Yukon and half of Alaska.
    • This, and your previous expansion I missed, are both incredibly implausible.
    • Not like the Swedes capturing the Canadian Arctic islands as part of Sweden proper (I mean Alaska as RussiapProper)
  • Spain continues on its expansion of its navy. The military is upgraded, and the government continues to improve the economy. New Madrid expands 4650 sq km inland.

1851

  • Naples continues to fight the Tamilian rebels and the Bharatis. However, in May the rebels seize control of the Tamilian Arsenal, giving them firepower equal to the Neapolitans. The Neapolitan arsenal cannot compensate, as the workers there have gone on strike on account of the economic collapse due to the war. Unable to continue fighting, Naples withdraws all forces from Tamilia and announces that they will no longer fight Bharat. Neapolitans who were living in Tamilia, as well as many Christian converts, flee to Neapolitan Pahang, which is expanded 6000 sq km into Borneo. The Neapolitans hold reelections, and the new chancellor, Cambio Occhiochiuso announces that he wishes to repair Neapolitan relations with Vietnam
  • The newly independent former Tamilians rename their country Dravidia. They lay claim to all territory that composed the Neapolitan colony Tamilia. They are a constitutional monarchy, but they have no King of their own, they recognize the ruler of Bharat as their monarch.
  • The Vietnamese expand their East Africa colony westwards by 76*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue to expand industries through out their empire. The Vietnamese assist the Kenians in recovering more of their nation's former territory. The Kenians also begin expanding into the unclaimed areas north of their nation. The Vietnamese, pleased that the Neapolitans have ceased the war with Bharat, resume normal trade with the Neapolitans.
    • Chancellor Occhiochiuso, anxious to fix one of Naples' oldest alliances, informs the Vietnamese that he has lowered the tariff on Vietnamese goods by more than 60%, in order to increase trade between the two nations.

They give Naples one more year before it completely declares support of Bharat. They ask Russia if they could buy Kazakhstan.
  • Do you even read other peoples' posts? Because if you did you'd see the war ended already.
  • No. He is clearly copy-pasting. if he weren't, he would stop expanding Persian Andes ... because the colony is locked.
  • The Neue Brandenburg Civil War culminates in a battle on the outskirts of Wilhelmsburg between the rebels and the Finnish supported royal troops. The King wins easily, retaking Wilhelmsburg and entering NBC in triumph. Luis Keller flees to Neue Wilhelmsburg, which expands by 600 sq km. The King thanks Nippon and Finland for their support and executes several remaining members of Weltanshaaung. However, in NBC street fighting ensues between the army and the Progressive Army.
  • The Nipponese pro-democracy protests are put down violently, and scenes quickly turn ugly as the protests turn into riots, and some of liberal Daimyo offer their support to the liberals. Slowly more and more Daimyo join the liberal side, and they demand the Shogun to enact democratic reforms or face being overthrown. The Shogun, fearing a loss of his clan's dominance, quickly ushers in the 1851 Democracy Act, which gives the people of Nippon much more political power. This ends the "Tokugawa Bakufu period" and starts the "Democratic Bakufu Period". The liberals are pleased with this, and stop their rebelling; and preparations for the first prefectural elections begin. Nippon colonies expand too, with Shuujin expanding by 800 sq km, Korubia expands by (1000*3) 3000 sq km, Satotochi expands by (1000*3) 3000 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands (1000*3) 3000 sq km in OTL New Guinea island.

  • Egypt updates its military.
  • Nouvelle-France sends some ambassadors to Vietnam to try to form bonds with the collectivism.
  • Nouvelle-Normandie expands 7750 sq km to Onguayal. Charles stays that he'll support Mesheryakov's party when he's able to incorporate the two parties. In return he wants, obviously, Mesheryakov's help to become even more influent in the imperial court and, obviously, spread his ideals in Russia and its colonies.
  • Haiti has a new emperor, Achille I of House Murat. The new emperor doesn't waste time. He sends ambassadors to spread the beauharnist ideologies all over the world, specially in the just recovered from civil disarray Neue Brandenburg, the just independent Uruguay, Újfundlandi, Tamilia, Alaska, Fjorlaand, the ICR and the Chinese and Swedish colonies in America.
  • Malouinas builds up its military. The Prince travels to Nippon to spread beauharnism between the local, specially the already existant democrathic movement. He does the same in the Republic of Kazami.
  • Russian Expansion into alaska continues. Military is updated with better technology, and more ironclad ships are built. the army is commisioned rifled cartrige guns. Mesheryakov passes the health act, outlying the rules of waste management, and leaving it up to the cities and Uesds to take care of waste and sewage, and to be answerable to this law, if not, they are fined. THis is to become a preamble for the federation act, a further division of power within russia
  • Sweden helps the Inuit-Eskimo Confederation in expanding and signing up more tribes into the nation and it expands into Alaska and a little in the NW Territory. The Swedish navy is upgraded and Asgard expands 3050 sq km in the Aleutians.
  • Bharat produces two more ironclads and three major steamships. The army is continuously worked on and the Dravidians are welcomed into the nation of Bharat.

  • The Taiwanese expand their New Taihoku colony by 16*50 sq km. The Taiwanese continue expanding their industry to catch up with their neighbors.
  • Naples works on recovering after the war, with Chancellor Occhiochiuso attempting to repair the Neapolitan international image by abolishing indentured servitude and by expanding the right to vote to less-wealthy Neapolitans.
  • Dravidia works on creating their new nation. They set up a democratically elected assembly, which governs alongside the Bharati Maharaja, and they divide their nation into several provinces, each governed by a mahajhapana. Dravidia establishes religious freedom; however, anti-Catholic feelings are high due to animosity to the Neapolitans
    • The mahajhapanas are asked if they would like to join the cabinet of the mahajhapanas of Bharat and both nations will be treated like one, in other words equally.
    • The Dravidians wish for their own independence, as they don't want to be simply part of Bharat. Thy state that they will work closely with the Bharatisbut they won't merge the governments as they wish to be independent.
    • That was not what Bharat meant. The nation will remain independent, it is just so matters of government are simplified.
    • Dravidia agrees to the clarified request.
  • Ricasolia recognizes Dravidia.
  • Neue Brandenburg experiences a huge political shift when, after NBC is finally pacified of guerrillas, the King experiences an assassination attempt. This seems to make him somewhat less reactionary, and when more riots begin outside the royal palace he gives in and allows the Estates to meet again, with the Volksdiet representing the lower classes. The estates are the nobles, the other landowners, and the Volksdiet. The third is the only that holds actual elections, and it quickly elects a Russian-style socialist faction as the majority. The country expands by 6000 sq km.
  • China expands its military heavily. Apache lands are scouted out and an invasion is planned.
  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75x75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75x75 sq mi. New Isafan continues to expand by 75x75 sq mi north. They ask Bharat to work with the country on a railroad-road system to connect both countries.
    • Bharat says they will take a bit of time to decide as the need to work on internal matters first.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. The Republic of Kazami repels the beauharnism ideology as they don't have a clue of what it is and don't care one bit. The Republic of Kazami closes it's borders to Malouinas; and soon begins heavily guarding it's areas with lots of ships so nothing like that happens again. Finland also sends ships to help guard the Republic of Kazami as well. The daughter draws the Suomi-neito standing tall on the large islands (representing the Republic of Kazami) using her power to destroy and drown the Malouinas' ships with the caption 'Varo kivan!' (Finnish for: Beware the nice ones! [Basically what it means is that the Finnish government is usually friendly and peaceful, but can get angry when things go wrong or invasion/foreigners spreading their propaganda in Finland and Finnish territories, etc.]).
  • Korea continues to industrialize, with much railway and telegraph lines being laid down. Korea suggests that a telegraph cable be laid across the Strait of Korea with Japan, which would connect the two nations even more.
  • Nipponese liberals take a few ideas from the beauharnism preaching Prince, however the liberals wish to see how their own theories & ideas work out for Nippon before using the ideas of foreigners. (I don't know what beauharnism is, give me some info about it & I'll give it a read to see if it fits in with what I'm planning for liberal Nippon) The first prefectural elections begin with prefectural diets being elected for each one of Nippon's prefectures; and work goes underway for the first lot of Ministerial elections, and the first lot of colonial elections too. Also Nippon puts the Ngainkeha independence talks on hold, until the Nipponese elections are finished and there is a new government to discuss independence with. Nippon also agrees to Korea's plan to link the two nations up by telegraph, and the Shogun starts a program to link the whole of Nippon up via telegraph. Finally, Nippon colonies expand as well, with Shuujin expanding by 800 sq km, Korubia expands by (1000*3) 3000 sq km, Satotochi expands by (1000*3) 3000 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands (1000*3) 3000 sq km in OTL New Guinea island.
    • Is like a mix of Communism (AKA classism and collectivism, plus Russian socialism) and Napoleonism.
  • Ngainkeha accepts the Nipponese suggestion to put the independence talks on hold until the new Nipponese government is elected. This gives Nai O to begin campaigning so that nearly the whole country wants independence, but in a similar way to how Nippon got independence from Vietnam so the two nations remain good allies. Ngainkeha expands inland some more, too and as cotton begins to be grown in the country on a large scale, lots of textile mills begin to open up in the large coastal cities of Ngainkeha. This is also helped by the increase in coal mining to power the mills. Plus while mining for coal, a lot of gold is found to, and Ngainkeha begins to become quite a big mineral exporter, and lots of jewellers set up shop in Ngainkeha creating very fine pieces of jewellery to sell as well.
  • Brunei expands the military focusing on the navy and cavalry.
  • Bharat produces four more ironclads and seven major steamships. The army is continuously worked on and better rifles will be implemented and the army will be trained on how to use them. Hindus to come to Bharat in the thousands and they then head to the colonies, mainly Hindustan where they can begin a new life in peace from Persia. Many cities in Bharat begin to boom with Dravida coming into a dynastical union with Bharat and job seekers heading north. Trading through the seas is also encouraged by the government as this is seen as a way to help Bharat export native produce. The remainder of the Kingdom of Lanka is convinced to become a vassal of Bharat in light of growing Bharati power as well as for protection from not so friendly powers. The King will also become a mahajhapana of Bharat, joining the King of the former AGC colony as the second King of a vassal to become a mahajhapana.
  • Naya Bharat expands 1000 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms contine to produce a small surplus amount.
  • Hindustan expands 550 km southward, with fleeing Hindus from Persia arriving and another small industrial factory set up more inland this time.
  • The Russian Military is updated, and the public health act is put into place. The federation act is put onto the house, which would divide the powers alocated to the Duma and Imperial council between the federal and Gubernatorial juristiction. it is rejected, but sombody comes up with the idea that power should be maintained at the lowest level possible. Libertarianism comes into the spectrum as a new political theory. The Russian Empress's sickness progresses, as she shows signs of worsening. doctors give her less than a year to live. Construction of the Trans-Siberain line is nearly complete, and RUssia promotes alliances between the Aleuts and expands into Alaska. a very large gold veign is struck in chukotka. Russians think that by 1860, they could set up an Aleutan nation to counteract the IEC's expanison(although most of the territory is "claimed" and lose people live and move around it).
  • Nouvelle-Normandie expands 7750 sq km.
  • Algeria expands 7750 sq km.
  • Haiti sends an ambassador to Dravidia to negotiate an alliance and secretly spread the beauharnism.
  • Nouvelle-France sends some men to Neue Brandemburg to spread beauharnism in the new socialist movement.

  • Sweden helps the IEC expand into Alaska convincing tribes to join. Sweden also sends thousands of the lower classes to the IEC to help with the settlement of the Inuits and Eskimos. Asgard expands 3050 sq km down the Aleutians.

1853

  • The Vietnamese expand their East African colony westwards by 76*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue to expand industries through out their empire. The Vietnamese assist the Kenians in recovering more of their nation's former territory. The Kenians also begin expanding into the unclaimed areas north of their nation. The Vietnamese Senate passes a bill expressly forbidding Beauharnism from entering Vietnamese territory, especially in New Vietnam.
  • The New Lithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians expand their New Ruthenia colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians continue improving their native industry.

  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75x75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75x75 sq mi. New Isafan continues to expand by 75x75 sq mi north. They ask Russia's permission to buy Armenia's Muslim regions.
  • Naples' economy continues to be hit after the loss of their most profitable colony. The government, operating on the basis tha the most profitably policy is that of colonization, so they expand Pahang by 6000 sq km into Borneo.
  • Dravidia now is organized, and sends its mahajhapanas to the court of the King of Bharat. The Dravidians work on improving their nation, back to how it was before much was destroyed in the war.
  • Brunei sends a trade agreement to Dravidia and expands south. Many more Hindus immigrate to Mauritius and the colony is expanded.
    • Why on earth more Hindus would migrate to Brunei when Bharat has one truly Hindu colony and the country's official religion is Hinduism. As well as this, Persian Hindus are coming to Bharat and some then head to Hindustan.
    • These are Hindus from Brunei and Brunei's former colony the major religion of Brunei is Hinduism with some Muslims. These Hindus are ones from Brunei itself immigrating for better opportunities in the colony not Hindus from Persia or Bharat.
    • Oh. I am pretty sure it had Hindus migrating to Brunei. In that case ...
    • Bharat asks for an alliance with Brunei seeing that they are a mostly Hindu nation. They hope that the two nations can work together and also ask for open trading between nations.
    • Brunei agrees to trade with Bharat but is wary of a full military alliance.
    • Bharat instead asks for a political alliance rather than a military one, recognising Brunei's hesitancy with the military alliance.
    • Brunei agrees to this.
  • Neue Brandenburg is shaken up yet again as the death of the King Wilhelm II leads to a time of confusion. The King has no direct heirs so the next King is literally a somewhat philanthropic factory owner (think OTL Carnegie, Gospel of Wealth, that kind of thing) named Adalhard Abedroth, who becomes King Adalhard I. He objects to a magnificent coronation ceremony, and although he still lives in luxury in the royal palace he still fires the majority of his courtiers, including the minister president. Several Beauharnist, Collectivist, and Royalist candidates rise up to fill his place and as the year ends speculation arises as to who will take his place. The country sees industrialization slow down slightly, but expansion continues apace by 6000 sq km.
  • Uruguay expands 8000 sq km inland.
  • Newfoundland expands 12,000 sq km inland.
  • Hungary updates its military. Magyar Del-Amerikabán expands 11,500 sq km inland.
  • The first colonial & ministerial elections take place in Nippon, with mostly liberals and pro-shogunate representatives coming into power. Political parties also begin to form in Nippon as representatives with similar ideologies become political allies, and begin to band together. The largest party is the Pro-Shogunate conservative party, followed by the liberal party, followed by the Pro-Emperor party, and then a large range of parties with more specialized goals. A few radical communist parties are around too, but they only hold around 20 seats in the whole Nipponese political system, as the ideas of communism have largely been rejected as the Nipponese are still content with the current system, and the Emperor's divine rule. Talks begin with the Ngainkeha government to allow Ngainkeha to succeed from Nippon, and Nippon agrees with the idea, as long as the two nations remain good allies, trade partners, and help each other out in times of need. Plus Nippon colonies expand too, with Shuujin expanding by 800 sq km, Korubia expands by (1000*3) 3000 sq km, Satotochi expands (1000*3) 3000 sq km, and Papua Nipponia expands by (1000*3) 3000 sq km in OTL New Guinea island. The Universities of the Pacific Rim Cooperation Group is set up too, which is a group for universities in the Pacific Rim where they join up, and help each other in research and exchange programs and the like.
  • Ngainkeha agree to the Nippon deal, and Ngainkeha is given independence by Nippon, and immediately after this Ngainkeha signs the pact of iron with Nippon, so the two nations have a military alliance, numerous trade deals, mutual cooperation in times of war, and the universities of Ngainkeha join the Universities of the Pacific Rim Cooperation Group.
  • China expands its military heavily this year. Meanwhile, the University of Shanghai is established.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. The planning railroads in the Republic of Kazami goes well but it will be a while before they actually start building one.
  • Russian continues to expands into Alaska, encourages alliances within the Communities of Aleuts, and Shows Sweden the borders outlined in the Conference of St Petersburg, outlining Russia's claims to Alaska and the American West coast. RUssian military is updated, and more advanced steamships and icebreakers (used exclusively by Russia), are being used in winter, and the Northeast passage is decide to be maintained all year round. The Socialist Party Is thinking about the incorporation of the two parties, but refuses as he does not want radically leveling the Nation. The Socialist party encourages Socialist and Socialist (Marxist) movements around the world. The Socialist party fractures further, and It is seen as if Mesheryakov is the only person holding the party together. In may, the empress Maria dies tragically of an unknown illness. The French Emperor Paul declares a state of mourning in France and Russia, and quickly receives the loyalty of the military, and is crowned in Moscow in September, as Emperor PAul II Romanov of all the Russias. his 7 year old son, Named Alexander after his uncle, is not proclaimed viceroy of France at his age, but still wears the Alexandrian Crown (the one given to Alexander by the French), as a symbol of the Russian Heir Apparent. Mesheryakov thinks and agrees to unify the French Parliament and Russian Senate, and orders the construction of more seats in the Duma to accompany the new French delegates. he proposes a Coalition between the Socialist party and the French classist part. A new version of the Federation act is tried to be passed, but falls once again in the council
    • Sweden rejects the Conference of St Petersburg as they were not actually there due to Russia's Tsar not inviting them until the end. Sweden states the resultant treaty was forced on the Swedes and is unfair as the Swedes were there first.
  • ICR: The ICR now numbers over 35,000 sq km and expands by 2500 km per turn. Construction of military related industries continue while the army continues to be upgraded and expanded while ironclads continue to be produced. An alliance is offered to New Brandenburg.
  • Charles-Louis acts as Captain Regent for the young Alexander Romanov. He travels to Moscow to propose a definitive union of Russia and France in one empire (like the former Commonwealth or the OTL United Kingdom). Meanwhile, the most of the seats (a little more than a half) of the French elected Duma are Beauharnist, some socialists, new socialists, classists and collectivists who aren't entirely convinced with the Beauharnist ideology, a few liberals and regionalist and almost no conservative. Nouvelle-Normandie expands 7750 sq km to Onguayal. Charles travels to Moscow to follow the Emperor in his coronation, and then he meets personally with Mesheryakov. He proposes the union of the Beauharnist party and the socialist party in the People's Party of Russia-France.
  • Algeria expands 7750 sq km.
  • Nouvelle-France sends an ambassador to Ricasolia to convert the Classist Alliance to Beauharnism.

Asgard expands southwards in a very thin line as a railway is built between New Sweden and Asgard branching off from the failed Thorlaand Asgard railway. Asgard expands 7600 sq km and New Sweden 7650 sq km. Very thin as in 5px at most 2 px at least.
  • Bharat produces three more ironclads and six major steamships, and new road construction is begun to help link up the factories more effectively. Railroads have been effective in linking up the country and now Bharati engineers with Nipponese and Swedish help begin to work on a newer, faster and more efficient train engine. The army is continuously worked on and it is hoped that an official navy uniform can now be made, followed by one for the army. Hindus to come to Bharat in the thousands and they then head to the colonies, mainly Hindustan where they can begin a new life in peace from Persia. Many cities and surrounding areas in Bharat continue to boom with Dravidan job seekers heading north. Trading through the seas is also encouraged by the government as this is seen as a way to help Bharat export native produce.
  • Naya Bharat expands 550 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms do not do so well this year, so Naya Bharat asks for better irrigation methods.
  • Hindustan expands 1450 km southward, with fleeing Hindus from Persia arriving and another small industrial factory set up inland this time.

1854

  • The Vietnamese expand their East Africa colony westwards by 76*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue to expand industries through out their empire. The Vietnamese assist the Kenians in recovering more of their nation's former territory. The Kenians expand into the unclaimed areas north of their nation. A Vietnamese scientist by the name of Liễu Hưng Viện discovers that a circuit of two metals causes a frog's leg to respond. He follows up this experiment by constucting a device consisting of several alternating pairs of copper and zinc disks separated by brine-soaked cloth. Viện has invented the first official electric battery, a discovery that will place Vietnam in the forefront of electrical research.

    • Do you know what a dynastic union is? Because you don't just ask for one, you state that the monarch/heir to your throne is searching for a spouse and ask if the other monarch/heir is interested.
    • Changed it. A personal union means a union made through marriage, right?
    • And personal unions also take years to occur, even if royal marriages are made. a classic way is: the current dynasty has ended and the closes relative of the deceased monarch is a monarch of other nation. This what is happening with Naples and Hungary right now.
  • Naples still attempts to recovery from their loss in the war and the subsequent economic downfall. Pahang is expanded by 2750 sq km. The economic problems have resulted in a new criminal organization developing in Naples, called La Città. They're the Italians, we need a Mafia equivalent.
    • ​ Just because it's Italy does NOT mean there will be a mafia equivalent. It could start anywhere else. I'm finding your comment highly offensive LurkerLord ...
    • Well, if the right conditions exist in Naples for something like this to happen, something like this will happen.
    • The Neapolitan economy is currently very bad. Bad economy = bad crime.
  • Dravidia works on repairing their nation from the war. They accept the alliance proposals from all nations who proposed them.
  • Ricasolia works on improving its economy.

The latter founds a cabinet, which includes a woman and a native. This news is greeted with consternation among the nobles, and jubilation among workers in NBC and Wilhelmsburg. Unfortunately no major reforms can be forced through. The country expands west by 6000 sq km. Finally, the Royal University is founded in NBC. Neue Brandenburg also attempts to offer economic support to their allies Naples, although their ability to do this is limited due to the Civil War, as well as apologizing for not assisting Naples for the same reason.
  • China vassalizes the Apache tribe after years of peaceful contact. This allows China to gain a major military bonus in the Americas.

  • Bruneian industry and trade abroad grow. The Murituis colony is expanded as is Brunei proper.
    • Bharat offers to help Brunei expand its colony and Brunei proper as Bharat feel that they can help preserve Bruneian interests in the area.
    • Brunei agrees to Bharats help but states that Brunei and Bharat are equals and reasserts that Brunei is independent. As such Brunei sends aid to help Bharat establish control over Dravidia and expand their Australian colonies.
    • Bharat knows this and is very glad that Brunei sent aid to Bharat. Aid giving can increase trading in both nations so it is a win win situation.
  • Bharat produces one more ironclads and three major steamships and more road construction is begun to help link up the factories more effectively, while the endeavours of the previous years are completed. The train engine is progressing nicely and it is hoped that it should be completed in two more years. The army is continuously worked on and the designing of an official navy uniform begins, followed by one for the army. The trials of the uniform begin at the end of the year and the early reviews are good. Hindus to come to Bharat in the thousands and they then head to the colonies, mainly Hindustan where they can begin a new life in peace from Persia. Many cities and surrounding areas in Bharat continue to boom with Dravidan job seekers heading north. Trading through the seas is also encouraged by the government as this is seen as a way to help Bharat export native produce. The offer to join up Persian and Bharati railroads if finally accepted after much deliberation.
  • Naya Bharat expands 750 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms do not do so well this year, so Naya Bharat continues their request for better irrigation methods from any nation which is willing to offer it to them.
  • Hindustan expands 1250 km southward, with fleeing Hindus from Persia arriving and another small industrial factory set up inland this time.
  • Sweden expands its navy further and sends a large flotilla to blockade the Bering Strait. The IEC expands into Alaska and a little into Yukon with Swedish help and thousands of Swedish citizens arrive in IEC lands to build settlements and infrastructure. Asgard expands 15,250 sq km in a VERY THIN line as the railway progresses towards New Sweden.
    • You aren't allowed to use the northwest passage without Russian supervision, or with warships, that entire trade route can just be blocked by Russia deciding not to send icebreakers, Russia controls this trade route. if we no use, you no use, so this damages you more than us especially since a railway was recently constructed linking a Pacific port with Central Russia, your call.
  • France develops a new system of railroads and steampowered machines. Charles takes advantadge from the affinity of Paul II to the French people, and, as the two countries are together, he's planning to transform France in a second version of Russia in technology, military power, democracy and respect between the neighbor nations. Nouvelle-Normandie is expanded 7750 sq km to Onguayal.
    • I assume that there is a rail line between Russia and France. Mesheryakov oficially asks the French to do a census to determine the amount of seats the French Deputies will get in the united Duma.
  • Algeria expands 7750 sq km. The Caliph travels to Bharat to ask for an alliance. He offers the Bharatians the technology they need. The technology on the Caliphate is almost as good as when it was a part of the Russo-French sphere.
    • There is some discontent in Bharat with Muslims due to the treatment of them by the Mughals and the Muslim Persians so forgive us if we take time to decide on this.
  • Nouvelle-France's Viceroy Édouard Belcher declares that the affinity of the Viceroyalty to the Empire of Haiti is still on though the French have occupied the island. "The French occupation, led by my good friend and almost my own nephew, Charles-Louis de Beauharnais-Buonaparte,, is just for the porection of the Haitian people. And such people has a emperor, my other great friend, Achille I Murat-Beauharnais.
  • The prince Maximiliem de Beauharnais of Malouinas also declares: "My brothers, adopted, yes, but still my brothers, Charles-Louis and Achille, are expanding the philosophy that has created such a prosperous antion for our people, and they're just preserving it in Haiti. Some day, we'll see the flags of the true socialism in every pole in land or mst in the sea. Every nation will see the adventadges of our system, the is as popular as well-ordered, as peaceful as cautious. Malouians was, is, and always will be an ally of Haiti, and, I hope, of France-Russia". (He refers to France as head of the union though the power is currently in Russian hands).
  • Haiti is still occupied. The population has a few complaints, because the trading between France and its old colonies is rising again
  • Russia expands farther into Alaska, the military is updated, and the land is rejoicing as Alexander I's dream is fulfilled, a trans-Siberian railroad is connected and Trade comences emediately. A RZhD and RTOZhD joint train project, the Siberian Express, going from Moscow to Vladivostok(But an RZhD train using th same cars technicaly goes as far as kiev). This is a great spot in Mesheryakov's Premiership. Mesheryakov refuses to join the parties for the first eleciton, but is willing to slowly integrate party funcitons, he outlines a program, first, he wants to see a working coalition, and then probably an Alliance, then, finally, a union of the parties (although Mesheryakov is old and hints that the union of parties may happen prior to the 1860 elections). Mesheryakov oficially asks the French to do a census to determine the amount of seats the French Deputies will get in the united Duma. Russian economy suffers minimal effects, and booms since the construction of the Railway. The government passes the Preliminary Basic Freedoms and Rights of the Citizen Act (that will be followed by the Secondary, and Terciary rights acts later), granting every citizen the (previously unofficial) rights of Dissent, free speech, privacy, and religion and grants them official government protection, protected through the Gubernias. The Religious tax is removed as it is deemed to disobey the freedom of religion (Although Russian Orthodoxy is strongly encouraged, and remains the state faith).

Principia Moderni Map 1855 Key
Dravidia should be the same color as Bharat as they are in dynastic union.
  • I wasn't sure if it really was.
  • The Neapolitans build up their military. La Città continues to grow. Naples asks all other nations if they have adopted the metric system yet. Meanwhile, Istoias expands by 2750 sq km to try to connect the two halves.
  • Dravidia works on improving its economy, trying to prevent any more people from leaving it for Bharat. Massive agricultural campaigns begin, and slight industrialization does as well (I believe that as Dravidia was a colony of Naples, it would be one step behind Naples, so stage 1). The Dravidians hold a census. They determine that the ethnicity of Dravidia is 35% Tamil, 17% Kannadan, 38% Telugu, and 9% Other. The religion of Dravidia is 83% Hindu, 8% East Asian Christian, 4% Roman Catholic Christian, 2% Schmittist, 1% Jain, 1% Muslim, and 1% Other.
    • Bharat would be glad if Dravidia could build up its own economy as this would free up jobs and proposes to send help to Dravidia to help them catch up on par with other nations in the region.
    • Dravidia accepts Bharat's offer.
  • The Vietnamese expand their East Africa colony westwards by 76*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue to expand industries through out their empire. The Vietnamese assist the Kenians in recovering more of their nation's former territory. The Kenians expand into the unclaimed areas north of their nation.
  • The New Lithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians expand their New Ruthenia colony by 25*50 sq km. The New Lithuanians continue improving their native industry.

    • There are no Incan Kingdoms. There is the Incan Republic (which is next you your colony) which is what I assume you are conquering? That colony's New Tehran, I think.
    • No, it was the Persian Andes. There's a country below me that I want to conquer with China.
    • That's a Spanish Colony.
    • Oh, oops.
Songone at Independence

Proposed borders for Songone

  • Bengal begins an ambitious internal colonization program to settle various marshy areas in the south. The authorities believe that this will improve the socioeconomic well-being of its people. Meanwhile, Naundesa approves a plebescite to transmigrate the entire country to the region of OTL Ecuador, or Songone, a name derived from a myth tracing the Naun language to when early Mon whalers with Russian captains first reached Toeh Ngoa Nyoing via the northeast passage around 1630. Facing an oncoming winter, the crew wished to cut the time traveled by crossing the Laptev Sea. However, a major storm hit when the crew landed on OTL Peschanyy Island. The crew had been accustomed to speak their own respective languages, Mon and Russian, but finding themselves in this situation, they were forced to communicate with each other. The first recorded creole word used was "mochin," for walrus. Upon the arrival of springtime, they left the island, naming it Songone, derived from a corruption of "song hani," or "circular shallow place in the sea." The word "hani" also describes the Equator, on which Songone is located. With agreements from local Mon governors in the south, who remain loyal to New Hanthawaddy, and other local rulers, as well as Sweden, arrangements are made for 160,000 Polarians to settle in Kunukutu, just outside Kitu, and the surrounding countryside. Thus, the former Hanthawaddy and Swedish colonies in Ecuador, as well as the Colombian Swedish colony and the OTL Galapagos Islands, would be placed under Polarian rule by 1860.
    • Not the Galapagos. I didn't give you them as they are integral to the Swedish colony of Wonderlaand.
    • How would the Galapagos be integral to any nation or colony?
    • They are the administrative centre for the Eastern half of Wonderlaand and a port for Swedish ships headed to Asia or the West Coast.
  • Nippon's factory industries go through a large transformation thanks to the newly elected Industry Ministry, focusing on metallurgy and textiles. The Taxation Ministry also makes the tax system more efficient and fairer, so revenues increase as tax dodgers are stopped, and some of the poorer citizens pay less tax too. The Rail Ministry also begins to start projects to bring railways to the colonies, and to Karafuto & Kamochatoka. Nippon's colonies expand also, with Korubia expanding into OTL Columbia by (1000*5) 5000 sq km, Satotochi expanding (1000*5) 5000 sq km (to the border agreed with New Lithuania in 1843), and Papua Nipponia expands by (1800*5) 9000 sq km into the heart of OTL New Guinea island too.
  • Ngainkeha expands inland as a basic rail network begins to be constructed, mostly to transport the coal and minerals from the mining towns to the ports.
    • What's the name of the country bordering Ngainkeha? You know the native Australian one, I have plans for it you see ;)

A rail-road begins being built in the Republic of Kazami, and is to connect only three large cities for now.
  • ICR: The ICR expands by 7500 sq km. The population is now booming to a grand total of 2,345,000 people. The army now numbers 75,000 modernly trained and armed men when the draft is in place while the navy has 13 ironclads. A baby boom continues. New Brandenburg is offered aid to stop its Civil War.
  • Brunei begins another round of military upgrades. Brunei expands south and many Bruneians immigrate to the Mauritius colony which is expanded inland. Brunei expands the rail system. A Dayak tribe along the western coast line consolidates into a small nation after receiving some money and tech from the Bruneian Merchants Guild who were are attempting to establish trade relations with the Western tribes.
  • Bharat produces 6 more ironclads and 8 major steamships and more road construction is continued. The train engine is progressing nicely and it is hoped that it should be completed in another year, with the end product hoping to be put up for sale worldwide to increase transportation speeds. The army is continuously worked on and the making of an official navy uniform finishes, followed by one for the army and the review of the uniforms are good. Hindus to come to Bharat in the thousands and they then head to the colonies, mainly Hindustan where they can begin a new life in peace from Persia. Many cities and surrounding areas in Bharat continue to boom but less Dravidan job seekers head north due to the reformes in the country, freeing up jobs for the local poplace. They also then ask to buy the Spanish colony right under Hindustan from Spain.
  • Naya Bharat expands 750 km inward towards the interior, with more colonizers arriving. Farms do not do so well this year, so Naya Bharat continues their request for better irrigation methods from any nation which is willing to offer it to them.
  • Hindustan expands 1250 km southward, with fleeing Hindus from Persia arriving and another small industrial factory set up inland this time.
  • Hungary replies to Naples that they plan to establish the metric system by 1860. Meanwhile, the extensions of the Buda railway continue to be built, and the economy expands.

Also some soldiers are living in military posts in the just occupied Haiti. Nouvelle-Normandie expands 7750 sq km.
    • Too high. I'd say at most 25 million or 30 million. OTL modern day is only 64 million.
    • You're right. Sorry.
  • Algeria expands 7750 sq km.
  • Nouvelle-Patagonie expands 4000 sq km.
  • Nouvelle-Gascogne expands 4000 sq km.
  • An Haitian ambassador travels to Ricasolia to spread Beauharnism.
  • The economy booms along the Pacific coast, as more and more trade happens there. Russian military is updated, and the idea of an "assembly line" becomes more and more popular, as expanison into alaska continues. A lone worker discovers that if electrical power can be harnessed, it can potentialy light up cities brighter than the most potent gas. his ideas are taken seriously by some, and dismissed by others. The First United Russo-French Elections are held. The Socialist party for the first time fails to win a majority in parliament, but this is only because of the 250 new seats added to accommodate the French. The Socialist party gains 295 seats in the Duma (popular because of many social policies put in, especially the rights of a person act), regaining lost Polish contingencies, but of course, they have a plurality. The majority needed is 375 seats. The Boharnaist party wins 170 seats in France (50 seats/15 million population), the Liberal Party of Russia has 124. Both parties come to Mesheryakov before the formation of a new government with the proposal of a coalition. Many people speculate that the liberals will form a government, and then, at the last second, Mehseryakov honors his secret pact with Charles-Louis, and the first coalition in Russian History is formed, and the liberals become official opposition again. The Industrialist party becomes the "fourth Party" winning only 35 seats, as opposed to 39 Polish Seats, the Kavkaz party wins five seats, the Siberian party, wins once again the one and only Evenkian seat, and the Crimean party wins twp seats, in the most Muslim regions, the remaining 118 seats are won by various French political entities. Mehseryakov becomes prime minister as the leader of the largest party, and choses ministers from both Socialist and beauharnist parties as ministers of the colegias (ministries). The title of the Head of government is changed to the President of the Cabinet of ministers, or Premier of the Russo-French Union. THe first order of business of Mehseryakov, is to propose legislature, and demands a free vote for all parties on this issue, because the government is divided amongst two parties. (He does this to overwhelm the French side, that sly, sly person Mehseryakov is), the issue is to abolish Salic Law for the succession to the Russo-French throne. The Law passes nearly unanimously with Russian members (other than Crimean and Kavkas parties, that are Muslim, with four members decided to vote agianst), due to the fact that just two years before, an Empress was in charge, so that's at least 496 votes for the abolition plus if any French voted for it. Salic law is gone from Russia and France.
  • Sweden helps the IEC expand into Alaska and the Yukon. More Swedish people are convinced to go to the "land of opportunity" in Asgard to help the IEC expand. The Swedish navy is buffed up with another benemoth ironclad built. New Sweden expands 10,000 sq km whilst Asgard expands 5250 sq km as the railway is built.

  • The Neapolitan government, desperate for a way to unite the people behind a common cause, and gain control of areas with good economies, begins a campaign of pan-Italianism in Verona and Venice, attempting to get those two nations governments to sign a series of treaties which will make them puppet states of Naples. The campaign also rejuvenates the Neapolitan morale, although the economy remains bad and the crime remains high.
  • Dravidia works on building up basic industry. With the help of Bharat, as well as the recovery from the war and the lack of Naples taking most of the profits, Dravidia's economy booms. The Dravidian government asks the small, former Hungarian colony where OTL Kerala is to join up with Dravidia, as they are also Dravidian. If the ruler of Kerala joins up with Dravidia, not only will he be made a mahajhapana over his territory, gain some territory for his area which is currently part of OTL Dravidia but is Malayam in ethnicity, join the booming Dravidian economy, and gain the protection of Dravidia and Bharat.
    • If i accept, how the map will look like?
    • The map would have Dravidia ruling Kerala, but within Dravidia, the province of Kerala would be like 4 pixels from the current border outward
  • Ricasolia has small economic troubles this year
  • Nippon has a census across the empire so that information could be gathered to assess what level of tax people should pay under the new tiered tax system. The census reveals other information too, such as the population being just a bit under 42 million and a baby boom happening in the urban centres as families struggle to pay their rent, so have more children to send them to work to increase the family income. The Shogun is personally shocked by this, and in an effort to stop children having to work to keep the family in their homes, the Shogun sets up the Tokugawa Housing Trust, where the Tokugawa clan buy houses and then offer them to poor families on a very low mortgage rate. The colonies of Nippon continue expanding also, with Satotochi expanding (1000*5) 5000 sq km (to the border agreed with New Lithuania in 1843), and Papua Nipponia expands by (1800*5) 9000 sq km into the heart of OTL New Guinea island too, and 1000 sq km in OTL New Ireland.

  • Due to recent advances in medicine used to treat tropical diseases in Bengal, a group of Bengalis explores the Congo River, making contacts with the local Kingdom of Kongo. The expedition party reaches as far north as Mbandaka, before turning back. Naundesa makes preparations to move to the region of Songone, led by rajah Gunther Mosin. His government prepares samples of Polarian flora and fauna in order to see the effects of the new climate on them. Also, steamships are loaded with industrial machinery to be transported up the Tolom (OTL Guayllabamba) River. By now, the population of Creoles in Songone has reached 31,000, many of which settled in OTL Esmeraldas, named New Purongcham, Kunukutu, and other small villages up the Tolom River. Exchanges with local natives are generally friendly, with trade ocurring. Many Sogoneans opt to learn Kichwa and do commerce with outlying areas.
  • Bharat produces two more ironclads and three major steamships and more road construction is continued, with funds for canal building being allocated so transportation is not a problem in the union of countries. The train engine is completed this year, and is a very efficient model compared to previous versions. It is then put on sale to any country willing to buy it, especially Sweden and Nippon. Dravida is not offered because they are given the title of co-constructors and they can manufactor the train engine themselves as well. The army is continuously worked on, with cannons being bought. Many cities and surrounding areas in Bharat continue to boom and Bharat begins to experience growth never seen before and is able to send a steady supply to Dravida for its factory construction because of this. Hindus also come to Bharat in the thousands and they then head to Brunei, due to the new program set up by the government to help Brunei expand on its main island. They continue to ask to buy the Spanish colony right under Hindustan from Spain. A census is also planned for next year.

  • Hindustan expands 1250 km southward, with fleeing Hindus from Persia arriving and 2 small industrial factories set up this time. Hindustan is now starting to become an industrial center, and the first small town built begins to experience an immigration boom.
  • France grows with the new technologies brought from Russia to strengthen the army, the navy, the new industries that grow in the cities, the railroads, the trade, etc ... Charles-Louis and his party support the proposals of Mesheryakov, but time to time some of them show officially reluctant, though in a while they give up and vote in favor of the Prime Minister. Charles-Louis starts a strong propaganda campaign in Russia, as he wants to be the successor of Mesheryakov when he's not able to rule the coalition, so he realizes that his main need is to convince the Russian people to support a foreigner. He proposes to Mesheryakov that, in the next elections, some French join the socialist party while some Russians join the beauharnist party, to show the plurality and mutual support of the parties. Nouvelle-Normandie expands 7750 sq km.

  • Russian military and Alaska expands. THe Economy continues to boom, and Alliances between Aleuts strengthen. Charles-Louis is appointed Vice-President of the Cabinet of Ministers. Mehseryakov thinks about the union of the parties, and Russians start running campaigns so that it will be easier to rally supporters and candidates in France for the French to gain candidates in Russia. He also runs more member-oriented as opposed to party-oriented campeigns. Mesheryakov celebrates his 60th birthday. Mehseryakov plans retirement soon. The Polish Party's popularity is getting worse, as it has failed to deliver anything, and the Socialists begin to look more apealing.
  • Sweden helps the IEC expand into Alaska and the Yukon. The railway between Asgard and New Sweden is finished with both expanding 75,100 sq km.

  • Ricasolia's economy reaches its worst point, but at the end of the year it starts looking up
  • Neue Brandenburg declines the offer of help from the ICR (because the civil war is in fact over). However, they offer to give them a special trade relationship. The King offers consolation for the death of the Nipponese Shogun. Over the past couple of years, Luis Keller has disappointed revolutionaries by failing to implement huge reforms. However, the King does sign into law the Responsible Fiefdom Decree, which limits landowners authority on their lands, and the Judicial Equality Decree, which eliminated the special position of the nobility in the courts. Industrialization has developed sharply in the past few years, as more people move to the cities and new railroads connect the fiefs. The country expands west by 10,000 sq km.
  • The Vietnamese continue to expand their military to prepare for the upcoming war in East Africa. The Kenians expand their territory into their nation's former territory.

Hindus also come to Bharat in the thousands and they then head to Brunei, due to the new program set up by the government to help Brunei expand on its main island as well as heading to Naya Bharat. They continue to ask to buy the Spanish colony right under Hindustan from Spain. The census planned for this year is begun in January and takes a good 8 months to be completed, and the total population is also included the population of Dravidia but all the other stats are for Bharat itself.

The Duma works on the Federation act, and the Tsar, Paul II, decides to go to the Senate square, and proclaims that federation(although maybe not devoting too much power to the governates) is the best way to keep the nation together through fire and water. French parties continue to grow in Russia and vice versa, and the Polish partisans diminue in popularity. Alaska is expanded and Alliances are now pretty tight in Aleutan comunities.

To avoid more nationalisms and conflict for the nobilities of every governate, every province should have a viceroy as representative of both the nobility and the Emperor. 2. The Salic Law should be abolished to all the Federation. France builds up its military and ask the Emperor if he would support France in a war to get more lands in America. The socialism-beauharnism spreads from the trade posts in France and French ambassadors in the world, but clandestinely, to avoid any tensions with the governments. The objectives are mainly Finland, Japan, the american states and Hungary-Naples.

Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. The Republic of Kazami bans this strange political ideology of socialism-beauharnism.

The Trans-Siberian Railway is to become Russia's most prestegious, and is fitted with the most new locomotives. A newer, easier revolver concept emerges, and is finalized. Meanwhile, in the colonies, unrest is brewing, s the colonials demand more power. Mesheryakov, in one of his seemingly final actions, devises a Special governing system, similar to vassals, but not quite, They would have full control of inner, and in some aspects external policy(trade only), and Russia would control the rest of foreign policy (such as alliances and wars), and if colonies want this, they may ask, but it is not very public that this system exists. Novorossiya, before this Expands into the rest of the old Venecian colony and South Novorossiay expands the max. The Colony of Novorossiya Elects a Reformist-Industrialist coalition, which is the first to ask the government for separation.

  • Ngainkeha expands in-land some more too, and Eetoria becomes a protectorate of Ngainkeha too.
  • I Assume that protectorates would be counted as puppets on the map. As long as I know, this would require a lighter color to Ngainkeha's color, which is also a lighter color to Japan/Nippon.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. Democracy ideologies is heavily promoted in all Finnish colonies now.

Mesheryakov Introduces a new law, making the minimum education age 14 (instead of eight). it gains new supporters, and new child labour laws are also placed, ensuring that the minimum education is not breached in the Young Russians' and Frenchmen's Education Act. it gains the Liberal and Socialist Party's support, which in and of itself in enough for a majority in the Duma. A mindset detailing that people should make enough money to buy the things they make is spread. the Light bulb is invented (yay!), and electricity becomes a subject of study. The first silver chloride photograph is taken as well through a pinhole camera, this becomes an object of intrigue as well. Architectural styles begin a new stage in Russia, trying to go beck to the old Russian Architecture instead of Gothic and classical ones. more new elegant buildings are constructed. Russian America expands 15,000 km inland. Russian Premier Mesheryakov officially Resigns, and leaves the office (and next year's election calling duties), to Charles-Louis.

It continues to advocate its steam trains for selling to Sweden and Vietnam and the construction of new train engines has created huge employment as over the year more companies looked to get people to work for them. Due to the rapid expansion of factories, the conditions of work are usually very filthy, but not a lot of attention is payed to this as factories are set up everywhere. Hindus continuously come to Bharat in the thousands from Persia and then head to Brunei, due to the new program set up by the government to help Brunei expand on its main island as well as heading to Hindustan. They continue to ask to buy the Spanish colony right under Hindustan from Spain.

Chancellor Sieno condemns the attack and has the assassins excecuted, but within France, Occhiochiuso states that Sieno's government is controlled by La Città, and that they cannot be trusted.
    • Realising that with the liberation of Dravidia, Naples has gone into economic decline, Bharat offers Naples a deal. Bharat offers that they will sell their industrial raw materials to Naples for a cheaper price than they would sell it to other countries on the condition the Naples renounce any claims on the sub-continent. With this, they would be able to transport tonnes of raw material for Napolian factories which would help kickstart their economy. Deal?
  • Adal expands 7750 sq km. The Caliph secretly sends some missionaries to Tunisia to spread fundmentalist ideals in the region.

Achille Murat, Édouard Belcher and Maximilien de Beauharnais support France. As his biological father was a Corsican, Charles-Louis calls the people of the island and the vassal states to rebel against the oppresive regime of the Chancellor Gremio Sieno, who he claims, is a member of La Città. He sends some men with the mission of create rival socialist mafias to control the organized crime once La Città's government is crushed up.

    • Persia is welcome to join the campaign to restore the peace and good government in Italy.
  • I have many questions.:
  1. Spain posted less than two turns ago, so he couldn't be considered inactive. Then why Russia simply took it? i also don't see nothing on the talk pages of the users allowing the other to take one's nation.
  2. Nouvelle Gascgone is a country or a colony?
  3. If it is a colony, then why it is expanding 4000 sq km, if the maximum number is 3800, with seven colonies and two vassals?
  • ​ 1. I've got no idea. 2. A colony, the new Fone in Africa. 3. Nouvelle-France is in 3rd industrial level so its expansions multiply five times.
  • Russia's post on Spain is incorrect and therefore invalid. Spain's King and royal family were killed by revolutionaries in 1848
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. Finland and the Republic of Kazami begins to strike against Naples, and both sends some ships to help France begin their invasion of Naples. Meanwhile, the rail-roads in the Republic of Kazami are seven-nineths done as well, and soon railroads are planned for Kōshi, Hyvinkää, and Käwäshiro but will be put off for a while because of other things going on. The Finnish colony of Sätōri will not get a railroad as it is too small and why bother. The daughter, after a few years of teaching her younger sister Raili Suzuki (who was born in 1826), declares her as the new successor in drawing the Suomi-neito.
  • Neue Brandenburg declare their neutrality in the conflict brewing between Naples and Russia-France, as both are allies. However, King Adalhard I makes it known that his inclination is to take the side of Naples. He brings lightbulbs into the Royal Palace, and orders other scientific experiments to be conducted. Meanwhile, the country expands west by 10,000 sq km. However, in December of that year the King dies suddenly, possibly poisoned. He has no sons, but his daughter, Princess Amalasuintha (sorry for the weird names, but it is a somewhat peculiar family) is championed by the pro-Neapolitans, the nobility, and the middle class to be queen. The King's somewhat ostracized brother, Prince Wagner, is supported by the Pro-Russians, the intellectuals, and the workers. The conflict seems to be leading to another civil war.
    • Charles-Louis uses his influence in the Parliament to sends some supplies to Prince Wagner. Also the American states of Nouvelle-France, Malouians and Haiti send military help to Wagner's faction.
  • The railways continue to be built. Meanwhile, the propaganda campaign on Greece continues, and Kandy updates it's navy. Magyar Dél-Amerikabán expands 11,500 sq km inland. Meanwhile, Hungary tries to maintain itself neutral on the Naples-Russia war, as it cannot declare war on Naples, neither in Russia, as it is their ally. The military is updated.
  • Uruguay updates its military, and the country expands 5000 sq km. The economy improves.
  • Newfoundland expands 12,000 sq km inland. The industry expands.
  • Nippon declares neutrality in the conflict brewing between Naples and Russia-France, as it has nothing to do with Nippon. Elections are done this year too, but voter turnout is low, with a survey showing that most people are confused with the current system, and there are too many positions you need to vote for. Politicians decide to simply the system and join together the splintered ministries before they grow too far apart. The colonies of Nippon continue expanding too, with Papua Nipponia expands by (1800*5) 9000 sq km into OTL New Britain island and 2000 sq km in OTL New Ireland.
  • Persia's New Tehran colony expands 75x75 sq mi west. New Persia expands by 75x75 sq mi south. New Isafan continues to expand by 75x75 sq mi north. They still try to persuade China to form a dynastic union by allowing their prince to the throne.
  • Bharat produces more ironclads and major steamships and more road and canal building projects continuing. The connection of Persian and Bharati railroads has been completed, and to make sure there is not a surge in unemployment, most of the construction workers are sent south to the Bharat-Dravidia border to build more railroad connections to the ones already existing and build new railroads out of scratch in southern Bharat, which will then be connected to Dravidia railroads. As well as this, they will construct more train infrastructure in northern Dravidia to aid the extra railroads being built in Bharat, all with Dravidia's consent. The army is continuously worked on, and due to the army's concern, the Kingdom bordering Bharat on its south eastern border is vassalized. This is done by convincing the King of the Kingdom that Bengal might again try to build an empire and suppress Hindus there, and the King agrees to become a mahajhapana, and is invited to see how the construction work on the parliament is going. Many cities and surrounding areas in Bharat continue to boom. Work on the official "parliamentary building" continues at stage 1. It continues to advocate its steam trains for selling to Sweden and Vietnam and the construction of new train engines has created a huge demand for factories, and the plan to upgrade older factories is passed through the mahajhapans. Hindus continuously come to Bharat in the thousands from Persia and then head to Brunei, as well as heading to Hindustan. They continue to ask to buy the Spanish colony right under Hindustan from Spain.
  • Naya Bharat expands 1500 km northward to the Persian colony, and the fishing business is turning out to be quite profitable. By accident, it is discovered that dead fish is a good fertilizer when a bunch of dead fish were chucked into soil two years ago yielded better crops than the ones which had no fish added in. Farmers now buy dead fish in large numbers to increase crop yield.
  • Hindustan expands 10,000 km southward, with immigration reaching an all time high as the colony opens up to all Dravidians hoping to set up a new life in Hindustan. Troops are also rushed over from Bharat and war manouvers are practiced, using the new cannons bought and the modern rifles produced. Horses are also brought over in large numbers for transportation purposes for the military, but farmers realize the potential of horses and buy many to help in farm-work.
  • An heir to the Chinese throne is finally discovered. Meanwhile, the problems in the Guangxi Province grow. A rebellion brewing in the province captures the town of Jintiang. The rebel army is strong, well prepared, and the attack is well coordinated.
  • Brunei sends more supplies to the Dayak Federation which expands north along the coast and into the interior. Brunei expands its Mauritius colony. More infrastructre projects are started in Brunei proper and the navy is built up. Brunei puts its military units on high alert as wars in Europe tend to spread east.
  • Sweden rules the Russian attempt at taking the vacant Spanish throne as idiotic and mutually destructive reminding Russia that Spain had killed their previous royal family and told the Russian's the same would happen to the Tsar if he claimed Spain. Sweden takes this opportunity to expand the IEC deep into alaska and also Asgard by 14,000 sq km inland and 500 sq km on the littoral. Sweden prepares its navy for war ready to defend Naples and Spain.
  • Russian forces are updated with better weaponry. Crating alliances with tehj Aleuts paid off, since the aleutan nations have banded together to make a small nation on the Aleutan Islands, and on the south coast of Alaska, that is to say, those who wanted to become sedentary, many prefered to stay to traditional nomadic ways of life. Russian Peoples Gather in support for the Russian taking of the Spanish throne, as they are promised representatives in the Duma, or a Duma of their own to manage their affairs. An official coronation is proceded in Madrid, and a construciton of a parliament is ordered. The Emperor Paul II officially federates the naiton by Imperial Decree, seeing as the upper house will never agree to compromise with the Duma, giving the power of governates(gubernias) to produce sales taxes, and manage agiculture, and the education currriculums, and other minor things, and also gives the power to veto Imperial decrees with a 70% Senate supermajority within two years. A new division is created, called the Oblast, these are regions that are derectly controled by the federal government, the only ones so far are the Chukotka-Siberia and Alaskan regions that are Oblasts. The Gubernias are given free reign on how they want their elecitons to take place, but by 1865, they must have at least a governing building constructed. National parties are allowed to have "satellite" parties in the gubernias' Dumas.

Without the Venetian naval aid, Naples loses control of the island of Corsica to the French The border of the former Papal States is reinforced as Naples prepares itself for a harsh war. They send word to Istoias, asking the Istoiasians to send support. However, discriminated against and under unfair colonization pressures from the Neapolitans, Istoias declares its independence from the Neapolitan colonial authority.
  • Dravidia begins to improve its military. They have no support for the Neapolitans who they still hate, but they are afraid that war could spread. They rebuild the Tamilian Arsenal.

The first volksbund is appointed, however, and Luis Keller is declared Minister-President. The new King decides to enter the conflict on the side of Russia-France, to thank them for their support in the civil war. Democracy has come to Neue Brandenburg.

  • France build up its military. The Grand Armée, the new armed force created by Charles-Louis, advances in Naples, taking cities and capturing any weaponry that they could find useful. The venetian arsenal is divided in two fronts: The most of it is bombing the neapolitan coasts, and less ships go to support the French Armada in the north, not attacking, but remaining vigilant against any swedish move. The French financed organizations in Naples start a war against La Città, with support of other important criminal groups who try to rivalize with it, such as I Figli di Dio. Charles-Louis besieges Naples and insists the neapolitans to not fight and help overthrowing the oppresive government of Gremio Sieno. Charles Cousin-Montauban, the Supreme Commander of the Brand Armée, travels to Persia among François Achille Bazaine and Louis Jules Trochu, his main liutenants, to discuss the possibility of create a socialist government in Persia to support the growing socialist faction around the world. General Alphonse Henri goes to Rome to see what the people think about the invasion. Charles-Louis writes a letter to convince the Emperor to negotiate a peaceful temporary solution with Sweden.
  • Finland continues to build up their military, and continue to build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Hyvinkää 400 km inward, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km.

  • Brunei continues to believe its in the nations best interest to stay out of the war but many are becoming disgusted with the socialist increasingly aggressive actions and offer the Neapolitans supplies and trade while remaining out of the war. The Mauritius colony expands and Brunei proper expands south and east.
  • Bharat produces more ironclads and major steamships and road and canal building projects continue. The construction workers south to the Bharat-Dravidia border building more railroad connections to the ones already existing have made good progress and should complete their task by next year and have completed building new railroads out of scratch in southern Bharat, and are ready to be connected to Dravidian railroads. As well as this, construction of more train infrastructure in northern Dravidia continues, all with Dravidia's consent. The army is continuously worked on, and newly manufactured guns are given to soldiers and the soldiers are put to train in war games, before they were sent to Hindustan. Many cities and surrounding areas in Bharat continue to boom. Work on the official "parliamentary building" continues at Stage 1, and the parliament seems to be turing out to be quite a beautiful building. It stops advocating its steam trains and focuses instead on its construction, as new train engines have created a huge demand for factories, and the upgrading of older factories begins. Hindus continuously come to Bharat in the thousands from Persia and then head to Brunei, as well as heading to Hindustan. They build up troops in Hindustan.
  • Naya Bharat expands 1500 km northward to the Persian colony, and the fishing business is turning out to be quite profitable, while better crops are grown this year due to good fertilizer.

1862

Spanish revolutionaries kill the Franco-Russians who attempted to take over. The Spanish and Portuguse re-establish the Republic of Spain and announce that they will resist anyone who attempts to retake control of their nation. No takeovers of any territory can be done without an algorithmic war.

Leave Spain alone Russia. ManofSteele leaves for half a week and you try to take over his nation. If you continue then we may need to carry out the Spanish reply to your first call (assassinate the entire Russian royal famiy and orchestrate a republican revolution).

Would a succession war occur due to this?

I added an actual moderator event, so we don't need a retcon like Scandinator wanted.

I only did the spain thing because I apperantly misread Gal in his Napoleon plans, and the fact that I think he previously said that Russia could claim the Spanish throne.

  • The Vietnamese continue to expand their military to prepare for the upcoming Swahili War. The Vietnamese continue to expand the ever-growing network of rail lines in their nation.

1863

Fearful of Socialist expansion, anti-Socialists seize control of the Rhineland, stabilizing the nation. Southern Bavaria (the southern third) is once again retaken by the Austrians. The northern two-thirds fall into civil disarray, and join up with the remains of Brandenburg and Saxony as one chaotic area.

  • Neue Brandenburg officially accepts the alliance of the Prince of Malouinas (I assume you meant Neue Brandenburg, since Brandenburg itself is occupied by Prussia). King Wagner becomes a patron of the sport of Cricket, which is quite popular among most of the population. The cities continue to expand, and more and more people work for the factories. The King institutes a policy of bankrupted factories being bought by the state. These factories will have democratically elected leadership. Luis Keller drowns while returning from China, and the country is governed by the King again, however he continues his progressive policies. Despite this, natives and women's rights lag behind other nations, and many are uncomfortable with the King's rule. Finally, Neue Brandenburg expands west by 10,000 sq km.
    • Bharat asks Neue Brandenburg for an alliance and open trading and also asks King Wagner to visit Bharat for diplomatic purposes as well as to teach them the sport of ... cricket as the mahajhapans think that this interesting game could become quite big in Bharat (look at modern day India to see how popular).

    • Persia agrees.
  • Naples city itself is taken by French forces. All of the Italian Peninsula is now French, with Venice being a French puppet state. Former Chancellor Occhiochiuso seizes control of Sicily, which he declares to be the Socialist Republic of Sicily, a French puppet state, which he is the leader of. The Neapolitan north African territory belongs to him as well. The colony of Pahang remains a Sicilian colony, but Vicia (in South America) breaks away by loyalists to the old Kingdom, renaming itself New Naples. Israel declares its independence from Neapolitan rule as well.
    • Persian Diplomacy: It feels bad for Naples and asks it to buy Pahan to help them with any money problems.
    • The Sicilians want to retain Pahang. However, if Persia wishes to conquer Vicia/New Naples in South America, the Sicilians welcome the Persians to do so. And as long as you use two turns, I won't require an algorithm either.
    • Bharat asks the Sicilians if they can take over the colony on the island of Brunei as a protectorate, and in return, the Bharatis will pay a lot of money and give them a few of the latest steam trains.
  • The Taiping Rebellion continues in China. Roads are destroyed and monks are killed by the rebels. The death toll swells as the number of rebels swells. By the end of the year, most of the Guangxi Province has been taken over by the rebels. The Chinese government warns Vietnam of rebels sneaking into Vietnam.

Alphonse Henri is named Viceroy of Italy provisionaly, and Albert de Broglie is made Prefect of Italy, this means, military representative of the russian monarchy in the allied (puppet) states. Louis Jules Trochu keeps negotiating with the Shah the possibility of create a socialist government in Persia. As Hungary was in charge of the government in Naples and they didn't do anything, Charles-Louis makes the neapolitan Senate sign a new constitution stating their union with the Russo-French Duma (for the next elections we should have italian representatives, mostly socialist due the pression of the French armies). The socialist parties of both antions are unified under a Mesheryakovist Party (the name is as honour to the politician, who is respected by Charles-Louis, as a tactic of Russian demagogy).
  • Adal expands 7750 sq km. The activities of I Figli di Dio had risen since Naples fell. Now the Islamic fundamentalist mafie rules Tunisia. Even some members of the group get close to the government in Sicily. Now I Figli di Dio aims to create a branch in Pahang to extend all over Asia.

Meanwhile, the Republic of Kazami stops sending supplies for now to continue improving the economy and also begins upgrading/repairing harbours. Also the rail-road in the Republic of Kazami is completed and tested, which is a success.
  • Bharat's road and canal building projects continue. The connecting of Dravidian railroads to their Bharati counterparts has worked successfully, and construction of more train infrastructure in northern Dravidia continues and is expected to finish in two more years, all with Dravidia's consent. Many cities and surrounding areas in Bharat continue to boom. Work on the official "parliamentary building" continues at stage 1. New train engines continue a huge demand for factories, and the upgrading of older factories continues. The number of Hindus coming over from Persia into Bharat begins to decline as most of the migratory Hindus have either found a new life in Bharat or Brunei or have headed to Hindustan. The army is continuously worked on and more helpful information is sent to the army in Australia. Troops sent to Hindustan to capture the Spanish colony are doing their job well and the factories produce more ironclads and major steamships, which are then sent filled up with troops to the front-line. They continue to ask for help from any nation willing to help them.
    • France will help Bharat invading the Hindustani Spanish colony if they support the russian claims on the spanish throne and offer their support in the reorganization of Naples and its colonies.

Many cities and surrounding areas in Bharat continue to boom. Work on the official "parliamentary building" continues at stage 2. New train engines continue a huge demand for factories, while cotton and ammunition factories continue producing more after its upgrades. The mahajhapanas try to influence the religion of Persia even more by spreading propaganda like "Hinduism is a religion so great that it can withstand wars and unite peoples" as the UJE as started trying to counter it. They then spew propaganda like "THe UJE cannot stop Hinduism in its great march forward". It continues to fund Hindus trying to convert Muslims in Persia, and increases their funding double-fold. Bharat continuously trains its cricket teams and coaches go around towns and cities telling people about cricket and teaching them how to play the sport and are glad that it is growing in Dravidia as well, and sends its cricket team to tour. More cricket coaches go to Hindustan and Naya Bharat. The army is continuously worked on, with more war games for the army and navy to better their fighting skills. The factories produce more ironclads and major steamships. The two eastern Bharati vassals are merged and another mahajhapana is added to parliament. This makes three mahajhapanas for the combined area. The maharaja (Emperor) starts to become interested in the idea of allying with France, and seeing as how he has more power than the mahajhapanas but hasn't used them yet, Maharaja Karamchand Gandhi I asks France about Mesheryakovism.

    • Only if you help me fight the French.
  • Dravidia improves its military by improving the Dravidian Arsenal. Meanwhile, cricket continues to become more popular. Dravidia improves its education system.

In the Treaty of Yaruki, Songone is divided into "Aboriginal lands" and "Creole lands." Creoles are limited to within 5 km of the Tolom River, but are only allowed into Kitu with a written permit. Both parties are unhappy but a peace reigns for the rest of the year.
  • Neue Brandenburg troops in China are ever victorious, along with their Nipponese and Chinese allies, which leads to a pervading optimism among the country's public.

This is hated by many corporate leaders, as well as immigrants who find it harder to get work.

Chess becomes popular. Finally, the country expands by 10,000 sq km.
  • "The Ever Victorious Army" continues to win all their battles and makes Chinese victory look almost certain, and so Nippon begins to withdraw some of their military forces. Shogun Tokugawa Iemochi befriends Trochu, and decides to assume complete control of the empire. To do this, Iemochi hires ninjas to bomb the national diet building in Edo; Iemochi blames it on Taipeng sympathizers and declares a state of emergency. This allows Iemochi to bypass the national diet, and Iemochi enacts a series of acts known collectively as the enabling acts. These acts include the national diet being hand picked by Iemochi, and exiles the opposing politicians to Shuujin. Iemochi declares Nippon to be under full control of the Shogunate, and joins France and Russia in the mesheryakovist alliance. This angers a lot of the liberals and they protest, but a lot of them just end up being exiled to Shuujin, and because of this mass deportation of opposition political activists, the Shuujin penal colony expands inland by (1000*5) 5000 sq km. Elsewhere the Papua Nipponia colony expands by (1000*5) 5000 sq km in the Cape York Peninsula, (1000*5) 5000 sq km in western OTL New Guinea island and (800*5) 4000 sq km into OTL New Britain island.

The mahajhapanas continue to influence the religion of Persia and spread propaganda like "Hinduism is a religion so great that it can withstand wars and unite peoples" and "The UJE cannot stop Hinduism in its great march forward". It continues to fund Hindus trying to convert Muslims in Persia, and it seems like it has yielded some favourable results. Bharat continuously trains its cricket teams and coaches go around towns and cities telling people about cricket and teaching them how to play the sport and are glad that it is growing in Dravidia as well. It cricket team wins the matches, although it was mainly because the Dravidians were a bit unexperienced. The army is continuously worked on, and the whole army is re-mobilized and trained on the maharaja's orders. The factories produce more ironclads and major steamships and for the first time, a large fleet is formed with the existing warships. The ships are retro-fitted with the latest weapons and guns and are ready to fight. The maharaja personally travels to the north-eastern state bordering Bharat and asks the King to become a mahajhapana as he would become protected by Bharat's strong army as well as keep his own interests. He grugingly agrees as he does not have the friendliest nations around him and the rebellion in China could spew over. The maharaja then, overlooking the mahajhapanas' complaints, allies with France and accepts the Mesheryakovist beliefs, making Bharat and its vassals a Mesheryakovist state.

  • Those are Pueblo peoples.
  • King Wagner seems to recover and calls elections, hoping to have a more autocratic government come into power, only to find that the populace, more empowered now that there is universal manhood sufferage in the cities, still vote overwhelmingly for the socialists. The Socialist Party defeats even a coalition of the Conservatives, the Royalists, and the Anti-Immigrant Party. However, factions emerge and it is difficult for the Minister-President to hold things together. The Minister-President's office is renamed to be simply Führer (not a Hitler Reference, just easier to type every time I write it).

The factories produce more ironclads and major steamships and a large fleet is formed with the existing warships. The ships are retrofitted with the latest weapons and guns and are ready to fight. The army is continuously worked on, and the mobilized army is assembled and transported to the Russian colony in West South America, from where they attack the nation in civil disarray and vassalize (can I just stablize and vassalize the nation or do I have to have an algorithm?).

He asks Jerusalem for help against Sweden, and sends ambassadors to both Ricasolia and Istoias to convince them the same. Charles urges the Shah to not attack Ricasolia, or the consequences will be devastating to Persia. The French fleet has taken a half of the Vietnamese Caribbean Sea, and the army is doing its best to eject the Swedish from the north. The Republic of újfundlandi is declared under direct menace from the anti-socialist government of Ungava. Some anti-socialist parties grown in secret, especially because Charles is in fact having the power of an absolute monarch, and most of his tactics are seen as supsicious by the French people. Rebellion outbreak in those anti-socialsit countries who hold French outposts (Sweden; Dravidia, as the former Tamilia held trading posts, that became military after the alliance with Bharat).

I Figli di Dio starts becoming independent from the Caliphal government, as the Caliph and his fundamentalist aristocracy don't aproove many of the action of the organization, such as assassination of good Muslims who din't obey their order, but the Caliph's, the prostitution and enslavization, and other things.

  • Istoias, fearing that if one former Neapolitan colony falls, the rest will, declares that they will help the Ricasolians if they are attacked.

Finland also expands Hyvinkää by 400 km, expands Kōshi by 450 km, and expands Käwäshiro by 400 km. Finland still supports France in their wars. Meanwhile, a few Finnish politicians just yawns at Sweden's response, and decides there is no hope anyway, even though they really brought it up themselves, and not the French. Kanako Björklund, a Shintoist female politician, begins to gain popular in Finland for her ideas of neutrality, plans for expanding industrialisation, and promoting peace. Plans for an election will begin whenever possible, but not now.

The army is continuously worked on, and they help bring more stablity to the newly conquered nation of Onguayal, where they will enact their systems of the mahajhapanas. However, the country would remain semi-independent. It is decided that there will be 12 mahajhapanas for the state and they will be represented in the Bharati parliament with three mahajhapanas, once the country is sufficiently stablized. Plans for the Maharaja's deposition are made, all over a game of cricket.

    • Can somebody do an algorithm for this? it sounds implausible to stabilize and vassalize a nation in the other side of the world in one year.
    • How? I vassalized the nation in one year and then stablized it the next. I could state I am still stablizing it next year.
    • Actually, this comes to the problem: how a nation in civil disarray can be vassalized before being stabilized? I think that you should stabilize it first and then vassalize it.
    • OK, stablization first!
  • Sweden expands the IEC and Asgard expands by 15250 sq km in Alaska. Sweden seizes the rest of the Finnish ports landlocking the nation.

The Sultan of the UJE helps Israel economically, expecting reciprocity. I Figli di Dio is now independent from the Caliphate, though it's still fighting for the fundamentalism. The I Figli di Dio branches in Persia fight the Hindu envoys and missionaries, attempting publicly against consulates and Hindu families. They become quickly a strong anti-Hindu influence.
