  • In the Imperium Africana, work progresses at a breakneck speed as the cable lines continued to be laid down to ease communication problems all over the nation's main cities. The cable lines prove very successful and small communication stations begin to be set up in the towns which hold cable lines. The opinion of the British Isles continues to be hugely negative, and it seems this feeling will not die down for a long time. The language of Sankala continues to become very popular. As a first language, pupils learn it dedicatedly as they know it would become the language which could be communicated fluently with Orissans. The Imperium continues its railroad projects. The aim is to be able to connect the major Ethiopian cities in each corner of the nation to Addis Ababa to make sure that trading spreads all throughout the nation. Consolidation of the many new lands integrated continues. Port towns continue to grow and fishing becomes a large source of income. The new roads to these towns help spread trade and make it easier for traders to enter and leave the towns for fish. The propaganda continues, fuelling Ethiopian rage and helping its people to work harder and better for the nation. People work for their nation and for greater prosperity. The army is upgraded with new rifles produced and given to the army, while the navy continues to work with the Orissan navy and train together. In Bado, the process of establishing thriving towns and villages continues. The locals under Ethiopian aid begin to learn of the ideas of plurocontinentalism and quickly begin to accept it. Already a demand for jobs arises in Bado and many tribes' people migrate into the towns to work and construct new housing and factories as well as build roads in the nation. The tribal people learn how to communicate by writing in Sankala, as the Ethiopians begin to implement it in schools and start to teach the Bado how to write with it. In Northern Antillia, colonists from Wahab continue to co-operate with the Inuit, providing them medicine and new goods in exchange for being able to learn more about them. Baridi sees many small outposts constructed and business opportunists head to the lands to be able to get new furs and wood. The nation continues to see a bright future. The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and inter-marry. This will help cause stability and peace in the empire and unite its peoples even more. This is already happening in the cities as people from different areas move in and work. The nation's propaganda begins to tell its people that the first stage to revenge is close, and citizens could help the nation in any way they can. Many join up the army after reading the propaganda messages. As well this, there is a huge number of emigration from Ethiopia to Orissa seeing the union between the people's nations and the easy chance to go travel to the other nation in search of jobs. The nation also reports large numbers of Orissans coming into the nation to set up new lives, presumably for the same reasons. Many find employment in the reservoir projects which the Orissans excel in due to heavy experience in Orissa itself. Crops continue to be grown successfully and a plan to greenify the deserts is brought to the attention of the government.

Anti-Icarus riots break out in Ona Yagich but are swiftly and brutally put down by the expanded and increasingly professionalized military. King Atticus begins tacitly supporting the opposition but does not overtly support them for fear that the Prime Minister has greater loyalty within the military. Icarus begins building a secular university on the outskirts of Ona Yagich and orders the bureaucracy to stifle the eforts of the Apostolic Church to expand its own universities. The observatory built by the Church is confiscated, purged of religious decoration, and renamed as the "Temple of Science". In Yagich Rafael, the local council of nobles condemns Icarus' re-election votes unanimously for independence from the Haruwin to form the Selk'nam Kingdom of Yagich Rafael - they pointedly continue recognize the monarchy and proclaim their continuing loyalty to King Atticus, asking that his younger son Gavin Peter be proclaimed as the heir to a new Yagich Rafaelite throne. Icarus draws up plans for a naval invasion, but a third of the fleet is based in Yagich Rafael under the command of locally-born Admiral George Not'gni'hsaw, who immediately pledges his fleet to the defense of the new Kingdom. Despite wide support for Yagich Rafaelites on the mainland, Icarus prepares to go to war. However, King Atticus announces in December that his son Gavin Peter has not only accpeted the Yagich Rafaelite throne, but that Atticus himself has abdicated claim to the throne of Yagich Rafael and that Gavin Peter will be immediately entroned in the city of Yagich Rafael Yagich.

1841

Ports in the Albanic Isles have gained a roaring trade from Scandinavia, Benelux, Normandy and Brittany. This helps the slow recovery of their economies following the massive looting that occurred during the Ethiopian evacuation of the Isles. The large scale cultural robbery, and the fact that the refugees did not care whether the machine or treasure was imported from Ethiopia or native, ensures that the Ethiopians will be demonized by the local governments for years to come. This all-encompasing hatred allows the nations to transcend and harsh feelings toward either the Welsh or the Germans. NOTE: Let's be honest, this sort of thing is all too plausible given OTL history.

Many join up the army after reading the propaganda messages. As well this, there is a huge number of emigration from Ethiopia to Orissa seeing the union between the people's nations and the easy chance to go travel to the other nation in search of jobs.

The army is upgraded with new rifles produced and given to the army, while the navy continues to work with the Orissan navy and train together. In Bado, the process of establishing thriving towns and villages continues. The locals under Ethiopian aid begin to learn of the ideas of plurocontinentalism and quickly begin to accept it. Already a demand for jobs arises in Bado and many tribes' people migrate into the towns to work and construct new housing and factories as well as build roads in the nation. The tribal people learn how to communicate by writing in Sankala, as the Ethiopians begin to implement it in schools and start to teach the Bado how to write with it. In Northern Antillia, colonists from Wahab continue to co-operate with the Inuit, providing them medicine and new goods in exchange for being able to learn more about them. Baridi sees many small outposts constructed and business opportunists head to the lands to be able to get new furs and wood. The nation continues to see a bright future. The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and inter-marry. This will help cause stability and peace in the empire and unite its peoples' even more. This is already happening in the cities as people from different areas move in and work. The nation's propaganda begins to tell its people that the first stage to revenge is close, and citizens could help the nation in any way they can. Many join up the army after reading the propaganda messages. As well this, there is a huge number of emigration from Ethiopia to Orissa seeing the union between the people's nations and the easy chance to go travel to the other nation in search of jobs. The nation also reports large numbers of Orissans coming into the nation to set up new lives, presumably for the same reasons. Many find employment in the reservoir projects which the Orissans excel in due to heavy experience in Orissa itself. The government begins to heavily consider beginning to greenify large tracts of lands which are not the best to farm on to make it more suitable for wildlife and make it rain. The nation is told that a war will soon take place to regain lost honour for the Ethiopian people.

  • Chappe electric telegraph

    The electric Schappe telegraph

    Saxony:
    Victor Schappe, son of the elder of the Schappe brothers (inventor of the visual semaphor telegraph system used in the German Empire and elsewhere) announces an invention: an electronic Schappe telegraph! The invention differs from the Ethiopian system because the electric pulses actually move the arms of a small semaphore! This means that the current telegraph operators do not need to learn a new code, and seeing as the controls are virtually identical, they need only minimal training to use the new devices. The Department of Telecommunications adopts the new invention, and telegraph lines are laid between the semaphore towers, which become electric repeating stations. The old manual poles will remain, for use in the frequent blackouts, and as a cheaper, slower alternative to sending messages by electric semaphore. In other news, the Kingdom of Tanimbarkai greatly expends its military, introducing the repeating air rifle into the army, and buying a gun-steamer from the Khmer Koch boatyards. In Saxon Australis, a 2nd Royal Australis Regiment is formed to assist the 1st RAR and the Imperial troops in defending the greatly-enlarged colony. Staying in Australis, the Weltzeituhr organises a competition, offering a large cash prize to the first exploratory team to cross the continent from Boniface to the Southern coast and back. Many teams return expressions of interest, and the "race" will occur next year. Saxon West Africa, too, is hit be exploration fever, and the Governor orders numerous expeditions into the interior.

  • Persia's Shah Aslan's orders to find out a semi-republican government have not gone unheeded, and the advisor who led the project has drated a Constitution aimed at establishing a fair and equal government. This potential change in government is viewed by some as too radical, but by others as a vital way to maintaining the size of the current empire. New Persepolis is now a highly effective administrative center, and the city is showing signs of large wealth, as well as increasingly prevalent imperial structures. The economy of Persia is doing really well, and is currently the largest it has ever been. In Turkomenistan and Samani, the Turkomen vassal, the nations are now decently confident in the new Persian leaders who help oversee local affairs. Through exposure and already occurring factors (including Russian, Chinese, Indian, and Persian influences) the populations of Turkomenistan and Samani grown to a Nestorian plurality, with the Muslims no longer holding the plurality. This had been long anticipated, as the connection between Mecca and these states has long been broken by Nestorian Persia. The arranged marriage with Shaybah comes to fruition in the early summer when the Shahzada comes of age and marries the Emira of Shaybah. This union marks a new era for Persia, as the fourth personal or dynastic union has been entered. The new nation of Shaybah has taken over control of the Persian Yemen for now. Kurdistan and Georgia continue to be benefitted by railroads that have crisscrossed the entirety of the Persian Empire. The vassalization of Turkistan continues (Year 3). In Persia, a growth of the importance of literature begins, and wealthy and influential citizens turn to literature to express their era in words. Military grows.

    • Yet I was doing the same thing all this time with Germanica and Mysore. Or the Philippines. I've yet to do something that involves implausible expansion, and I have not broken any expansion rules, which Rex has, vassalizing six states in three years. Punk.
  • Baghdad has grown into an immensely powerful city, and begins to rival New Persepolis in splendor. The Baghdadi/Babylonian nationalism has given way to a much stronger form of nationalism (in part due to the migration of Persians into Baghdad) that emphasizes that the two nations have dominated the region for most of human history. Baghdadis and Persians continue to grow a common bond. Vassalization of Ha'il continues (Year 3). Kirkuk and Karbala are both now also decent-sized cities in the Mesopotamian region. Kuwait and Khafji help Baghdad rise in importance, as key vassals. Military grows.
  • Sanaa, Socotra, Hadramaut, Najran and Aden, Persian puppets, continue to experience "Persification," which leads to a transformation into a stringent Nestorian series of states.

  • In the Imperium Africana, the Uda Code continues to be taught to those sending and receiving messages to make their life easier and make communication easier. It makes life so much simpler for cable communicators and brings communications down even farther. For the first time in history, cables are used to transmit about victory from the front itself. The opinion of the British Isles continues to be hugely negative, and it seems this feeling will not die down for a long time. The language of Sankala continues to become very popular. As a first language, pupils learn it dedicatedly as they know it would become the language which could be communicated fluently with Orissans. The Imperium continues its railroad projects. The large number of railroads bring greater progress to the nation and the inudstrial zone moves northward. Consolidation of the many new lands integrated continues.

Baridi sees many small outposts constructed and business opportunists head to the lands to be able to get new furs and wood. The nation continues to see a bright future. The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and intermarry. Effects can be seen in the cities and are continuing to grow. The large amount of people exhance between Orissa and Ethiopia continues. Many Orissans begin to marry Ethiopians and visa versa in Ethiopia and its territories, causing the mixed population to grow. The nation also reports large numbers of Orissans coming into the nation to set up new lives, presumably for the same reasons. Many find employment in the reservoir projects which the Orissans excel in due to heavy experience in Orissa itself. The government begins to heavily consider beginning to greenify large tracts of lands which are not the best to farm on to make it more suitable for wildlife and make it rain. With the allies of Mataram, the Ethiopians move into the land brutally quickly and liberate the numerous black slaves the Arabians have had. The conditions of the fellow Africans make Ethiopian blood boil and the nation moves with brutal pace, taking Arabs as captives and offering former slaves to join up and fight. Within the end of the year, the East Arabian Federation cannot continue to combat the combined might of the allies, and the nation's army collapses. The capital of the nation on both Comechellak and Africa are captured and the nation comes under the control of Ethiopia. Ethiopia's second army, poised at the Orissan Gold Coast see a huge boost in soldier numbers from freed slaves who are hugely grateful to the Ethiopians and vow to help them as repayment. Many cannot be supplied and are given captured Arabian weapons to make sure they can continue to fight. Orissan weapons are imported to arm the large number of troops. From the Gold Coast, Mali is invaded - with the aim of swiftly taking over the nation.

1846

Ukraine declares war against Minsk, in order to claim the region of Galicia-Volhynia. It manages to capture part of the region. However, while the war goes on, an rebellion happens in Cherkassk, and an independent republic is established around there, taking up much of the Ukrainian far east. Meanwhile, Russia resumes expansion into Siberia, and the city-state of Baku allies itself with Azerbaijan, in an attempt to fight Persian expansionism. A new nationality begins to form in Minsk. An increasing amount of people begin to call themselves Belarusians, as a reference to their increasingly distinctive regional language which had started as an offshoot of Russian. While many of the former Russian vassals don't see eye-to-eye anymore they still respect Russia. They sign very favorable trade agreements with Russia in exchange for Russia recognizing their full independence. The large rail network Russia has established in their nations has been allowed to remain intact.

What happened to all the friendliness between all the nations and the co-operation that happened and all the railways they build together and stuff? What heppened to the Mutual defence treaties and alliances? Why are these friends fighting! Them declaring Russian Tsar no more king is like Canada doing the same to Britain! These guys are supposed to be friendly, why are brothers fighting? I am sad now ... -Lx
Maybe because war is much more interesting than peace. Plus history has shown that people can start fights over the dumbest of causes. All those nice things probably went out the door with Russia, which likely acted as a stabilizing force. But now Russia's interests have been turned inward, removing that stabilizing force.
Now when I said that, there was a problem. Though I haven't been able to contribute due to circumstances, I have been keeping tabs. First off, Ethiopia controls that small state where OTL Ghana (for a question on the talk page). Second, these events appear more divisive than useful. Just an opinion. That's all I can say for now, but I'll be keeping up. I'm watching you. O_O ~Viva

  • The Russian Tsar Ivan decides to intervene in the little conflict going on between his children. The Russian army decides to intervene and show them truly who is boss. The Russian forces show up and try to stop the engagements, become peacemakers if you will, and, worried about the well-being of the railroads, show in the constitutions of both White Russia and Ukrainia that the thrones are officially joined (i. e. due to past laws, in Ukraine during the formation of the nation, and in Belarus in the 1600s, I believe), i. e. the monarch of one is the monarch of all. The nations' Dumas are now pondering the Russian interpretation, but the threat of Russian military action, and the history of long friendship are huge considerations, as law is law, and the Monarch of Russia is also officially the Grand Duke of Finland, and the Duke of the Caucasus (although since the dissolution of the FDC this is now moot). RUSSIAN FAILSAFES ACTIVATE!!!
    • Sorry Lx, but your empire is gone. Pretty much every single nation has cut its ties with you. They have their own leaders (read: separate Royal Houses) now, and the fact that they hold Russia in high regard doesn't mean they'll follow blindly. The constitutions binding those nations would have been tossed out or altered when they declared independent. The fact I said I was sorry doesn't mean that you get to ignore all of this and pretend you can fix it with a snap of your fingers. The situation has been altered permanently.
    • I don't think you realize it was already a pseudo-British commonwealth-type system, all nations were already independent. They were just in personal union. This is why I hate Stannis ... Much of the time you have to see him as a douchebag, but you can't truly disagree with his actions ... goddamit, that was my last trump card. Guess you are dealt the cards you are dealt ...
    • It should have been obvious when I wrote "in exchange for recognizing their full independence" that they were cutting the last threads with Russia.
      • You just added that like, today.
      • Bullshit. Read the 1846 event. I only added what should have been painfully obvious - that when the vassals gained independence they went all the way.
      • You added the fact that Russia recognizes "independence" (since they were already fully independent and not just vassals much prior to this) at 15:48 ... that is 10 AM today ... By "today" I meant" after I checked yesterday", and 10 AM fit the criteria (I checked, then when I logged back on, you changed it, so "you changed it today" But fine, I guess thanks for saving my railroads. EZhK is still in existence! Huzzah!
    • I feel like this kind of thing should be allowed to a certain extent when users come back after five days. At least Ukraine and Minsk could come back, although not the Transcaucasian violence-allday-everyday nonsense. No one should screw with newly independent Transcaucasian states.
    • On that we can agree, Caucasian States are always ticking time bombs ... Anyway, I feel like it is being letter of the law (five days means Russia Kaboom) vs (perceived) Spirit of the Law (rules used under assumption that user will not come back/lost interest, I argue not sufficient evidence for assumption). but Meh. It looks like the judge is in favor of the letter of the law. So what can you do, right?

The Reformists regroup, and edit out the section regarding Herrenhaus reform. They plan to re-introduce the new legislation at the start of next years' session. Saxony expands its military, and the army is equipped qith the new, improved Windbuchse 2, a 25-shot repeater air rifle.

The government begins to heavily consider beginning to greenify large tracts of lands which are not the best to farm on to make it more suitable for wildlife and make it rain.

    anti-Icarus forces.

It becomes clear that Icarus' forces will eventually lose if the battle is allowed to continue, but that the battle will be extremely violent, and the citizens of Yagich Atticus wish to continue under his rule.

Neutrality is declared in the war against France after a 500 to one vote in the German Reichstag that voted in favour of neutrality in the conflict, though the military is carefully monitoring the situation. Overseas, Bavarian Australis expands 32,000 sq km into the heart of Australis. Borneo expands infrastructure and continues industry. The Central Telegraph Company begins rolling out new lines. The Bavarian military creates a new code for use only in high level Saxon-Bavarian transmissions. The Baltic Kingdoms continue to be influenced by Bavaria, it is hoped that next year they will agree. Thanks to the discover of new medicines, Bavaria experiences a baby boom. Saxony is asked to vote on the Imperial Capital. Several small French states nearby are approached with the offer of defense alliances and protectorate status. Germany takes steps in the Reichsrat to officially recognise Neu Berlin as a sovereign nation. Elections are held this week, with the Socialist Party winning a majority in the Senat, the Socialists make a coalition government with Nationalist Party, which controls the lower house. The Prime Minister is elected. Erwin Romming is elected from the Christian Democrat Party. The military experiences a major upgrade, with the "Great White Fleet" being established in the navy, and the use of breech-loading rifles in the army. Portugal is approached with offers of a defensive alliance and research agreements.
  • The Hellenic Union continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic peninsula. In Cyprus and Crete, cloth factories and paper mills are built and in the colonies, hospitals and health care continue to be widespread. The Hellenic Union continues to expand both its economy and its military and its colonies are expanded. Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 12,000 sq km and Nea Lemesos is expanded by 12,000 sq km. The war against the French scales down and comes to an end, and the Hellenic Union asks what sort of land it might receive as spoils of war. The Hellenic Union also agrees to the Saxon colony boundaries. The Hellenic Union also prepares to send a delegation to the Olympic games hosted by Bavaria as it is considered a part of national culture. It is also hoped that Athens or Constantinople would be able to host the next event, harking back to the Olympic Games' original homeground.
  • Cyrenaica: expands 20,000 sq km into the desert and continues to develop paper mills and cloth factories. The war against the French ends. Upon hearing about the Bavarian Olympic Games, Cyrenaica proposes to send its own team, and begins preparations.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The state elections are held this year, with hundreds of thousands of Saxons voting for the first time. So many new voters results in a very hodge-podge parliament, and no one faction has the majority. Eventually, the Progressives, the Colonials, and the Industrialist party form a governing coalition. The plebiscite on the Imperial capital results in a two-way tie between Bamberg and Frankfurt. Industry expands. Saxon Australis expands 2000 sq km toward Bavarian Australis (which by now, we must be contiguous with). The Governor of Saxon West Africa is glad that the Hellenes agree to the deliniation, and SWA expands 2000 sq km along the Southern border. Khmer Koch expands its economy. Tanimbarkai expands it military, and more troops are massed on the border with Sumba.
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Guinea expands by 2000 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar. Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. More cities are built in Northern Myanmar. Most of Southern Myanmar is now cities.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Prime Minister Lloyd Morgan focusses all of his efforts on rebuilding the Selk'nam economy and trade network which was neglected by the Icarus regime (which focussed its economic policy on Yagich Atticus). There is a debate over how the new Prime Minster is to be addressed in writing, with the bureaucracy preferring the Selk'nam tradition labelling him by his Christian name as "Prime Minister Lloyd", but he himself preferring the Welsh tradition of using his surname, hence "Prime Minister Morgan". Eventually it is decided that that his European surname is part of his "Christian name" and that he lacks a "Native name" as defined by the Selk'nam. As a compromise he is to be always called "Prime Minister Lloyd Morgan". Crown Prince David Menelik takes on more royal duties as King Atticus's health declines, and his wife Urraca surprisingly becomes pregnant and bears twin daughters, who are named Kynsewide Hgichin'Selk'nam'ichin'Tuch'h'uelpe'DeLaraiAxum'nam and Æthelthryth DeLara'gvetchin'Pugh'iSelk'nam'hgichin'Chongat'Tuchhuelpe'nam. Urraca, age 36, has a difficult childbirth and it is feared that she may die, but surprisingly she survives and becomes beloved in the Kingdom. The naming of Princesses Kynsewide and Æthelthryth after Brythonic saints is widely noted as a nod to the influence of De Mor Tir in the revolution and a praise of Prime Minister Lloyd Morgan. King Atticus and Prime Minster Lloyd Morgan are excited to hear of the Bavarian Olympics and plan to send some of their best athletes from the Warrior Games.
  • Kingdom of Yagich Rafael: Prime Minister George continues to expand the military and economy and is widely praised for not taking a position on who his successor should be. Several nobles jockey for position, hoping to take office. King Gavin Peter determines, on advice from his father King Atticus, to also send a team to the Olympics. Queen Dinah gives birth to a second daughter who is named Natalia Praxedes Hgichichin'YagichRafael'Pugh'nam.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Icarus focuses his attention on building the economy, which was his undoing in the Selk'nam Haruwin. He realizes that he rose to power on his building of Yagich Atticus, and remains popular in his new island nation only because of continued prosperity. Grudgingly, he offers to keep trade routes open to Selk'nam merchant ships, who use the port as a halfway point on the journey to Yagich Rafael. Icarus also determines to send a team to the Olympics and invests much wealth in training athletes, hoping to prove his competitor better than the "religion polluted minds" of the mainland Selk'nam. An underground Apostolic Church takes root after the abolition of the legal church.
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Lando the Second continues to revitalize the scholarly life of the church, focusing his attention on ancient mystics of the Jihudist sect. He expands the Jihudist library and declares 1850 the "Year of the Mystics" with a great conference of scholars to be held in Avalon. Also, he continues aiding the underground church in the Praetorate of Pure Science.
  • The Russian Tsar Ivan is very distraught, but decides to build up his influence again. The Nation of White Russia, who is much loving Russia, now under the temporary control of the Romanovs, ever since they joined the realms back around 1610, are asked to once again renew this bond of thrones ... with positive answers, as many members of the Duma are for, but not a majority. However, a 40% minority, with 30% undecided, and 30% vehemently against after the last election. Ukraine becomes a bloody republic, and Ivan decides to try to build his influence in the Ukraine's Duma to try to have himself elected next ... perhaps maybe have a coup d'etat. Russia approaches Astrakhan with an offer of protection, especially since EZhK has connected almost all members of the Russian realm with a vast Railway network. Russia tries to renew EZhK and increase its authority that way throughout the region ... Military work continues. Russia goes to the Grand principality of Suur-Suomi trying to get re-instated as the royal house as per the constitution, or at least have a reaffirmation for the military alliances and the "single economic and customs zones". However, security measures are slightly buffed as the Duma is rebuilt, and the Sociaists are rising in power, contrasted by the individualists.
    • Lx, this is perfect for a Socialist Union!
    • You'll need more effort to revassalize them. They severed all connections with you. Including royal houses. Other than the railroads you have nothing left in any of them. You won't be getting either Belarus or Ukraine back so easily.
    • if you decide to go Socialist, you will have some support from Socialist-led Germany. (We aren't commie though, still King and country).
    • Right, because showing intent to do something is exactly the same thing as doing it (under that logic, the US would have already been a pile of rubble from North Korean nukes). I am not planning to restore overnight. If I would have, I would have made it 60% in favor of restoration. What I'll do is just enlist help form my good friend, Mr Assassin, and conduct marriage politics.
  • Normandy: The military expands, as does the economy. Monarchist groups riot in Rouen in the months of June, July and December. Nothing comes from the riots, however.
  • The Mayan Empire: continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Construction rebuilding Chichen Itza continues, with more modern amenities and planning being integrated into the design of the city.

Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 20,600 km and Haven expands 12,400 km.
  • Persian government under the new Republican Monarchy is running smoothly. With the stuggles in the Russian Empire, the nations of Turkomenistan and Samani are combined, and the Nestorian faith continues to grow more. Kurdistan, Georgia and Turkistan are vassals of the Republican Monarchy. Military grows.
  • Baghdad's period of Persio-Baghdadi nationalism comes to a relative peak, and combination is approved by the local government, merging Baghdad with Persia proper. Meanwhile, Ha'il, Kuwait and Khafji are vassals. Military grows.
  • Shaybah, Sanaa, Socotra, Hadramaut, Najran and Aden, continue to experience "Persification," and continue conversion to Nestorianism, which spreads into the rest of Arabia. Military grows.

  • The United Maharajya and its puppets and vassals see economic growth with large amounts of construction work taking place. Army is upgraded, too.

1850

PMII1850
Gold is discovered in the South of the Nuova Brescia (near OTL Ballarat). Initial estimates reckon the gold deposits could be on an even larger scale than those in New Oman. Hundreds of thousands flock to the goldfields from all over Nuova Brescia, Australis and the world. This causes severe labour shortages in parts of Australis. However, it also causes a massive influx of prospectors from Europe and East Asia.

Rumours of some new radicals ideas begin to be spread in southern Atlantia.

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies grow and industrialization continues. Meanwhile in León, Bárbara Fernández de Córdoba gives birth to a boy, who is named Ramiro. Meanwhile in León, the Infante Alfonso de Haro, born in 1846, dies. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 3800 sq km, and Angola expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile in Rio da Prata, Paraná expands 29,200 sq km inland. Meanwhile, Brasil is elevated to a kingdom in personal union with Portugal, in a status similar to what Neu Berlin used to have under Brandenburg. However, Brasil is referred to as a kingdom, instead of dominion. However, the external policies of Brasil are still dependent from those of Portugal, in a similar way to the rest of the Iberian kingdoms on the Spanish Empire. The capitanias of Bahia, Pernambuco, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, São Vicente and Espírito Santo become provinces of the kingdom. The rest of the Brasilian territory still remains as a Portuguese colony.
    • Collie, slight request. When I said about the territorial exchange, I was meaning it for the colony south of the one you have taken land from. Minor nitpick ~Imp

As such, much of the new population now thinks of themselves as Scandinavians first.
  • The Saami people, which were an autonomous Oblast to begin with, are offered the same deal as before. They ponder it and an answer is expected by next year. Astrakhan is given a deal and as Ivan tries to reform the Russian realm, he invites Astrakhan once again. Ivan uses assassin politics with Ukraine, and kills their Tsar who is, under old Novgordian law, elected for life (the reason they rejected Russian Tsar Ivan is that heredity is a thing). Ivan tries himself as a bid, using his Ukrainian heritage as a tool. The Veche is set to meet next year. Russia conducts a secret deal with the Romanovs, in which there would be a royal marriage, and the Romanovs would become once again Grand Dukes and perpetual governors of White Russia, to be announced in 1852 when his and Romaov's children come of age. Ivan pleads to be restored as Grand Duke by the Diet of Suur-Suomi, but to no avail ... yet. Russia tries to increase influence after stabilization, and tries once again to act as a stabilizing force in the region. Russia politely asks any nations not to kill the New NPCs ... please. A new model of Kalashnikov rifles is released, the MVK-50.

    • Pick a country that's not a target, then.
    • The status of Russia and her former vassals is a huge issue of contention here right now so it might be one to avoid. If I may make a suggestions, we don't have any solid players in interior Sub-Saharan Africa but a bunch of unclaimed states. You'd need to negotiate trade deals for sea access but the game would hugely benefit from filling that space near OTL Lake Tanganyika. Playing as Luba or Lunda would be a lot of fun right about now.

1851

The Nuova Brescian Gold Rush continues, with many striking rich, and many more finding nothing but broken dreams. With so many people and so much wealth in the area, the Southern region of Nuova Brescia (approx OTL Victoria) calls for separation from the rest of Nuova Brescia as their own self-governing colony (remaining part of the Italian Empire).

Rebellions erupt in Persian territory as multiple ethicities want their own states and rapid Persian expansion ensures they are too few troops to man all the sections of the empire. In the area of Turkey, the state moves away from Persia, declaring full sovereignty and asking to receive protection from the Hellenic Union (+5 for economy, military and infrastructure plus *1.5 total war score for revolt). The newly annexed regions of Iraq and Kuwait stay loyal, as they had been in the Persian sphere long enough to be assimilated.

Georgia offers a second home to Turkish states, as we are closer in ethnicity than the Greeks and would love to join with our Transcaucasian brothers. (Again, I just want to unite Transcaucasia before I split it from Neu Berlin.)
The Hellenic Union accepts the offer of protection, and is also understanding if the Turkish states would wish to join Georgia, a nation closer to the Turks racially, and hopes to remain on good relations with Turkey under protection of either state.
Georgia proposes a Black Sea Economic Zone for all three countries.
The Hellenic Union accepts the offer.
Just want to point out that these nations all share representation in the Parliaments. I am fine with their rebellion, but I just wanted to let you know that, in general, Persian vassals/puppets are OK with their situation. They have representation, and aren't being forced to change anything. Furthermore - Turko-Persian tradition and Persianate society. I feel that I have over-extended myself too much culturally, since the Turks and Persians are pretty similar. I will accept the mod event, nonetheless, however.
Your post is not a diplomatic offer, so it has to be bolded.

In newly conquered central Asia, revolters hit Orissan and Persian targets alike, focusing their attacks in the north. Many are not happy with Hinduism or Nestorianism being spread in their territories and would rather have their own nation backed by Russia.

  • No room for Nouvelle Bourgogne to expand. Baie d'Notre Dame was taken by the Chinese, and Baie d'Eric is owned by Neu Berlin. I see that you failed to remember the fracturing of your country.
    • The event was declared invalid, given that it was removed. As such, the event never happened. Although he fails to remember that he gave Baie d' Eric to Neu Berlin
    • I didn't give him the entirety of Baie d' Eric. I gave him the 800 pixels he would've won and if that's relatively less than I thought, half of Baie d'Eric. However, I should keep a small portion in the continent and the expansion would be focused toward Western wilder Canada.
    • There's no room to expand anyway. You're landlocked.
    • I mean the North Western Canada, Nunavut and its neighbouring regions and using Baie d' Eric as platform to colonize the region.
  • Great Lorraine: Military is built up. School system grows. Economy is built up. In a fast move the situation turn its tide, as Republicans from Picardy throw a surprise attack into Lorraine forcing the Kingdom to send troops to fight them.

  • Persia's growth slows down a little bit following the declaration of independence of Turkey. While the Shah is upset over the loss, he believes that people should have a good deal of freedom. He does point out to the other nations within the Persian Empire that they have a relatively free system of government as compared world-wide. With Baghdad, Kuwait, and Persia all combined into one entity now, the government has grown more efficient for these core regions. The Shah announces a halt in expansion for now, seeing Persia to encompass all ethnic Persians, and saying "the current realm rivals the largest Persias from the past." Instead of looking for a new name, people are contented with just Persia for now. Turkomenistan is reminded of the benefits of being part of the larger empire instead of being limited, and therefore is decently pacified. The Nestorian Church stops sending new missionaries, which helps to releive tensions also. Nonetheless, conversion continues at a slower pace. The government under the Republican Monarchy is still running smoothly. Kurdistan and Georgia are vassals of the Republican Monarchy, and an effort to prevent their secession is made, leading to their happiness with the Persian leaders. Ha'il and Khafji are also vassals. A special delegation of athletes is sent to Berlin to compete in the Olympic Games. Military grows.
  • Shaybah, Sanaa, Socotra, Hadramaut, Najran and Aden, are given a good deal more consideration this year, as Sanaa, Socotra, Hadramaut, and Aden are all combined to form Yemen, which is then promoted to a vassal of Shaybah, which is in a dynastic union. We attempt to build stronger relations with the rest of Arabia, especially the powerful Caliphate and Federation. Persification and conversion of Arabs to Nestorianism continue. Military grows.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): Saxony expands industrially. The Saxon Olympic team is welcomed home triumphantly. Labour shortages continue in Saxon Australis, and even the two Royal Australis Regiments have problems with soldiers simply going awol to try their luck in the goldfields. Regardless, Saxon Australis expands 1000 sq km toward Bavarian Australis. Saxon West Africa continues expanding 2000 sq km inland along the Southern border. Emissaries are sent to the [unnamed?] inland NPC to lay the groundwork for trade and potential vassalization.
    • The one north of Kongo? It's called Teke.
  • The Hellenic Union continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic peninsula.

  • Cyrenaica: expands 20,000 sq km into the desert and continues to develop paper mills and cloth factories. The war against the French continues. The Olympic team is welcomed back to Cyrenaica and the results are celebrated. Cyrenaica wishes to join the Black Sea Economic Zone as an observer state due to its ties with the Hellenic Union.
  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation begins to spread along the Pekitanoui River, mainly in the southern portion, increasing the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continue as more of their skins are used as clothing and teepee coverings, and more of their meat is used to feed the growing population. The palisade wall idea has been completed on smaller towns closer to the capital Wiconwico U and has now also completed on more outlying towns. The tribal feudal system continues its expansion into more parts of Lakota lands, expanding the system. Trade with the Mayans and the Apache continues, growing the Lakota tribal economy. The scouting of nearby colonies continues, as does Lakota Expansion 10,000 km north, following the Pekitanoui River.

The Scandinavian Russians continue to assimilate into Scandinavia, further improving the economy. The Scandinavian language continues to be taught to the new Scandinavians, who are still encouraged to hold onto their heritage, but think of themselves as Scandinavians first. As such, much of the new population now thinks of themselves as Scandinavians first.
    • Ukrainian DIplomacy: We ask to have a defensive alliance between our two nations.
    • Russia would like to [secretly] ask for some support from Scandinavia in the event that violence is needed to restore Ukraine their rightful and constitutional leader to the throne.
    • Scandinavia replies that Scandinavian asistance would require Russia to recognize the borders as they currently stand. (hint, hint)
  • Celtic Union: The Celtic Parliament convenes to elect the new Monarch as the last king died heirless. A man from the Valon family is chosen, and he is crowned James I of the Celtics. He then orders military buildup and construction of new roads to connect the country together and semi-weekly ferries to bring people between the Irish and Scottish halves of the country. We offer the Ukraine an alliance and we begin to influence Wales and Brittany.
    • ​Dean, you are ignoring three decades of history.
  • Italia works on its naval forces and begins to retire all of its old sailboats. Ironclads now compose a large portion of the Italian navy which is feared by many around the world. Urbanization continues across Italia at a rapid pace especially in the Western port cities. Venice continues to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia become industrial centres as huge cloth weaving factories spring up to serve the growing demands of an expanding population. The University of Venice continues chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia continues observing the skies and discovers more astronomical objects. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara expands at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 34,000 sq km in Australia. Calls for Vellettia (Southern Nuovo Brescia) to become its own colony are greeted with discontent in the rest of Nuovo Brescia and attempts to mediate are made. Most see that remaining as one colony is mutually beneficial for the Nuovo Brescians as the colony remains somewhat weak in comparison to the strength of other powers in the area and help from Italia would still take months to reach it. Work to extend the network continues with minor lines springing up. Passenger and freight trains break social and cultural barriers and make travel a lot more affordable. Many factories of different types continue to be set up around Italia.
  • Nuovo Italia expands its economy seeking to become a leading trade nation in the Antilias as Italia is in Europe.
  • Romania works on its economy. Siam and Malacca work on their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies. Padang and Malacca are finally reunited upon the death of the childless Sultan of Padang.

  • Normandy: The military expands.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. The Empire celebrates the results of the Olympic Games. Construction rebuilding Chichen Itza continues, with more modern amenities and planning being integrated into the design of the city. More branch lines are created for the railroad, connecting more large markets. As a result of the expanding rail network, the economy booms. Influence is exerted over Novoroyssia, attempting to try to convince them to join the Empire. Glass, steel and concrete become common building materials in the southern provinces. Some of these establishments also appear in Mutul and Azteca. Trade throughout North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia. The Juun family continues improving the national public school system. More universities are established in lower class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca.

Greater Kaliforno expands 20,600 km and Haven expands 12,400 km.
  • Russia sends athletes to wherever olympics are held. Work on military continues with new rifles being delivered. Stuff happens. Russia sends out secret messages to all of its allies/anyone who Russia has ties with (if you don't want to, pretend the messenger was never sent) to ask if they would possibly aid if Ukraine's defiance did come to violence.
  • Ukrainian Dip: We are greatly sorrowed that you want war to come and to enslave a nation who only wants home rule. We would like to keep relations and even give you ports (or even some land) on the Black Sea, as long as you can recognize the Ukrainian lands as a sovereign state.
  • Neu Berlin continues to expand military. Neu Germanic expands 4000 sq km. Kanada and Druzia continue to be influenced.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues as the government continues to convince its people that their hard work and loyalty is necessary to the survival of their people and state. The migration continues at greater pace through the railroads. The southern areas are continued to be focused upon and it is encouraged to marry those from the north to help better unify the people of the nation. Sankala continues to grow in power and popularity, with millions in the nation adopting it in their everyday lives for communication with others of different groups and nationalities, breaking down the language barriers wherever it is found. In Bumbai, the completr layout of the shipyards are completed and the main buildings and machinery begins to be built. The government knows it is beginning to put a drain on resources, but the ports keep the funds coming in for the project. Many of the islands continue to be dredged to make extra land and hopefully build a good base for the naval yards. Integration of Lanka and Singala into the mainland continues to progress, with many on the island coming to appreciate the wealth and glory of the United Maharajya. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and many thousands of Maharajyans seeking to move into the colonies of the nation continue abroad, seeking additional opportunities there. Uttarshina is expanded by 1150 km inland toward Brasil, increasingly closing the final gap between the two territories. Many of the citizens in Arab Bombay continue adopting Hinduism as their primary religion with much progress made by the government in promoting its adoption. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into all parts of the Maharajya. The Uda Code continues to grow in popularity and becomes used more often than not by communicators. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. Patagoshina is expanded 6150 km to the north, seeking to gain access to the precious resources in the region. Dakshin Aprika continues to expand its borders, doing so by expanding 15,000 km inland. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each into the Sahara to gain access to the desert trade routes. The Gold Coast is expanded by 650 km to cater to the growing population and immigration to the territory. Orissan Aprika is expanded by 18,150 km. The new territories captured by the United Maharajya help to provide extra manpower. Afghan, the new southern vassal, sees thousands of missionaries head into the nation, along with normal citizens to help establish new cities in the region and show them what it is like to be one with their brothers. With huge rebellions going on in northern Central Asia, more troops are send to help calm the situation down. However, reports of genocide come into notice of the Maharajyan government. They try to send the order to stop the genocide but it is already too late. The violence continues and hundreds of thousands are getting killed in the genocides. Territories in Africa see greater control established on them. The Olympic team is congratulated.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure, supporting numerous development schemes throughout the nation, and promoting migration into the land. The colony of Naya Punjab is expanded by 32,150 km, with a major industrial base supporting its rapid growth. The rails between Delhi and Amritsar become very popular, with hundreds of thousands visiting the capital, and funding the expansion of rail lines elsewhere. The Khmers and expand their military, economy and infrastructure, as do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands military, economy and infrastructure. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance. Butung develops its infrastructure, and its military and economy are expanded. Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km, and tens of thousands continue to flee, as the Welsh propaganda has taken root with the people, giving false belief of the Orissan administrators' intentions
  • In the Imperium Africana, the Uda Code continues to be taught to those sending and receiving messages to make their life easier and make communication easier. It makes life so much simpler for cable communicators and brings communications down even farther. The opinion of the British Isles continues to be hugely negative, and it seems this feeling will not die down for a long time. The language of Sankala continues to become very popular. As a first language, pupils learn it dedicatedly as they know it would become the language which could be communicated fluently with Orissans. The Imperium continues its railroad projects. The large number of railroads bring greater progress to the nation and the industrial zone moves northward. Consolidation of the many new lands integrated continues. Port towns continue to grow and fishing becomes a large source of income. The new roads to these towns help spread trade and make it easier for traders to enter and leave the towns for fish. The propaganda continues, fueling Ethiopian rage and helping its people to work harder and better for the nation. People work for their nation and for greater prosperity. The army is upgraded with new rifles produced and given to the army, while the navy continues to work with the Orissan navy and train together. In Bado, the process of establishing thriving towns and villages continues. The tribal people learn how to communicate by writing in Sankala, as the Ethiopians begin to implement it in schools and start to teach the Bado how to write with it. In Northern Antillia, colonists from Wahab continue to co-operate with the Inuit, providing them medicine and new goods in exchange for being able to learn more about them. Colonists from Wädäb continue to teach the Inuit a script to be able to write their language. A lot of the Inuit learn it and the the colonists encourage the people of the Inuit to inhabit permanent settlements to help gain some form of governence. Baridi sees many small outposts constructed and business opportunists head to the lands to be able to get new furs and wood. The nation continues to see a bright future. The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and intermarry. Effects can be seen in the cities and are continuing to grow. The large amount of people exchanged between Orissa and Ethiopia continues. Many Orissans begin to marry Ethiopians and visa versa in Ethiopia and its territories, causing the mixed population to grow. The nation also reports large numbers of Orissans coming into the nation to set up new lives, presumably for the same reasons. Many find employment in the reservoir projects which the Orissans excel in due to heavy experience in Orissa itself. The government begins to heavily consider beginning to greenify large tracts of lands which are not the best to farm on to make it more suitable for wildlife and make it rain. Kenya sees a huge program to integrate the new land into the nation and people are advised to move south and farm the land. A small piece is kept separate, while talks begin to extend the land of Kenya by uniting similar countries under the control of the Imperium. Mali sees growth and the nation begins to endure a large "Ethiopianising" campaign to make the Malian people think like Ethiopians and Orissans and bring them to the same level of civility.

New Oman expands 15,000 km inward, with the gold helping pay off various Ethiopian debts around the world and help create a boom. The military, economy, and infrastructure of all territories are expanded.

1852

The Nuova Brescian Gold Rush continues. Vellittia continues calling for separation as its own colony. Leaders of the movement cite the massive distances involved in running all of Nuova Brescia, difficulties in co-ordinating the defence of one massive colony in the event of foreign attack, as well as the wish of the Vellittians to decide what becomes of the revenue raised by the gold mining licenses as reasons for the separation.

The revolts in northern central Asia continue to gain ferocity. The Orisssans suffer heavily due to their greater numbers. An accident on an Orissan general's behalf leads to the beginning of a genocide of the Turks rebelling. The area becomes a huge hotbed with genocides never seen before. In Persian Central Asia, the situation is slightly better in the north as both sides try to talk about issues. The former state below Russia which was once part of their union is behind the funding of attacks, hoping to destabilise the region to gain land.

Russia sees a boost in morale due to the recovery of their nation from dark times. The nation's borders expand 100,000 km northward into Siberia as the troops which would have been in associate territories are used to press northward. This will not qualify as expansion on the algorithm due to it being expanded by the army. However, there is some trouble in the farthest away lands, the ones bordering Japan.

Seeing the growth of Russia once more, the former Russian colony of Novorossiya next to the Mayans rejects any attempts as vassalisation. They state they would rather be closer to Italians and Russians as well as their continued allies the Neu Berliners than the Mayans.

Mayans and Russians have been allies for quite a while, when we were both allied with Brandenburg and each other. This event is unfounded and unresearched.
They are Russian, they will not give up their independence. To the Mayans, or any other nation in the area. Plus, the cultural differences between you and them is the biggest compared to them and the Neu Berliners or Italians.
If they will not give up their independence, then why did Kanada submit to Neu Berlin?
Read the last part of my previous sentence.
I did. I was referencing the first part.

  • Ukraine: Talks with Russia commence, and we offer them Crimea and ports on the coast, along with unlimited trade between us, but our main goal is to keep sovereignty, and avoid war. We place men and fortify the borders. We plead Scandinavia, Germany and other nations to help us if it comes to war, for the people will not give up on having a land that the Ukrainians call home.

Baltica becomes a vassal state of Germany and is divided into Prussia and Baltica. Their king becomes a member of the Royal family and they receive votes in the Reichstag. All citizens are assured they are and will be treated completely equally. Bavaria continues to experience a baby boom. Cities like Munchen and Bamberg grow as people flock to the cities. Bamberg is declared the Imperial Capital. Work begins on the Imperial Palace and the offices of the Reichstag. Several more offices including the office of the navy and army are under construction.

Saxon Australis continues to have a labour shortage, but things have mostly stabilised. It expands 2000 sq km toward Bavarian Australis, which it must surely be contiguous with by now. Saxon West Africa expands 2000 sq km inland toward Teke. Another trading mission is sent to the reclusive African kingdom, and the governor of SWA plans to visit next year to speak with the Tekean king. Electric telegraphs are introduced to SWA, but they can only be used for intra-colonial messages.

  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation begins to spread along the Pekitanoui River, mainly in the southern portion, increasing the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continue as more of their skins are used as clothing and teepee coverings, and more of their meat is used to feed the growing population.

  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 2100 sq km. Myanmar Guinea expands by 2000 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar. Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. More cities are built in Northern Myanmar. Most of Southern Myanmar is now cities.
  • Persia's growth slows down a little bit following the declaration of independence of Turkey. While the Shah is upset over the loss, he believes that people should have a good deal of freedom. He does point out to the other nations within the Persian Empire that they have a relatively free system of government as compared world-wide. With Baghdad, Kuwait, and Persia all combined into one entity now, the government has grown more efficient for these core regions. The Shah announces a halt in expansion for now, seeing Persia to encompass all ethnic Persians, and saying "the current realm rivals the largest Persias from the past." Instead of looking for a new name, people are contented with just Persia for now. Turkomenistan is reminded of the benefits of being part of the larger empire instead of being limited, and therefore is decently pacified. The Nestorian Church stops sending new missionaries, which helps to releive tensions also. Nonetheless, conversion continues at a slower pace. The government under the Republican Monarchy is still running smoothly. Kurdistan and Georgia are vassals of the Republican Monarchy, and an effort to prevent their secession is made, leading to their happiness with the Persian leaders. Ha'il and Khafji are also vassals. A special delegation of athletes is sent to Berlin to compete in the Olympic Games. Economy grows.
    • Persia, You don't control either Kurdistan or Georgia, and we thought that it was clear that the former Arabian states would be harder to vassalize than your usual NPC, and I advise that you drop the Olympic Games part. They're already over.
  • Shaybah, Sanaa, Socotra, Hadramaut, Najran and Aden, are given a good deal more consideration this year, as Sanaa, Socotra, Hadramaut, and Aden are all combined to form Yemen, which is then promoted to a vassal of Shaybah, which is in a dynastic union. We attempt to build stronger relations with the rest of Arabia, especially the powerful Caliphate and Federation. Persification and conversion of Arabs to Nestorianism continue. Military grows.
  • Can you stop posting as these countries? You do not control them. Please look at the map; even our great head mod denies your control over these states. YOU DO NOT BORDER THEM.
    • This is the Myanmar player posting. He is most likely copy-pasting whatever Rex usually says. We still have to deal with Rex's tendency to overexpand as soon as he's back.
  • UKA: Military development grows. We expand. Ships are sent to Siberia and Alaska to colonize them. Can someone give me a general idea as to where this is and how it stands?
    • If you are controlling the so-called "United Kingdom of Antillia", well, it doesn't exist. It has divided itself into Novorossiya and Kanada. Pick either one of them to play.
    • I suggest Novorossiya, considering that the Germans are about to control Kanada. Novorossiya is also along a major shipping route (Mississippi).
    • Or maybe a different country all together. Mayans are about to contol Novorossiya.
    • No, they are not.
    • No need to be so harsh, Imp. I just assumed that Scraw and I could do the same thing simultaneously.
  • Italia works on its naval forces and begins to retire all of its old sailboats. Ironclads now compose a large portion of the Italian navy which is feared by many around the world. Urbanization continues across Italia at a rapid pace especially in the Western port cities. Venice continues to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia become industrial centres as huge cloth weaving factories spring up to serve the growing demands of an expanding population. The University of Venice continues chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia continues observing the skies and discovers more astronomical objects. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara expands at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 34,000 sq km in Australia. Calls for Vellettia (Southern Nuovo Brescia) to become its own colony are still greeted with discontent in the rest of Nuovo Brescia and even by most Velletians themselves as they see that remaining as one colony is mutually beneficial for the Nuovo Brescians as the colony remains somewhat weak in comparison to the strength of other powers in the area and help from Italia would still take months to reach it. However, Italia agrees to take a colonial review to reorganize the system of colonies. Work to extend the network continues with minor lines springing up. Passenger and freight trains break social and cultural barriers and make travel a lot more affordable. Many factories of different types continue to be set up around Italia. An offer is sent to Tokaido to realign the borders of Papua according to longitude with equal amounts of land swapped on both sides.
  • Nuovo Italia expands its economy seeking to become a leading trade nation in the Antilias as Italia is in Europe. They send note to Novorossiya that if there are any further attempts by the Mayans to annex them then it will support Novorossiyan independence.

    Propaganda within the Maharajya continues as the government continues to convince its people that their hard work and loyalty is necessary to the survival of their people and state. The migration continues at greater pace through the railroads. The southern areas are continued to be focused on and it is encouraged to marry those from the north to help better unify the people of the nation. Sankala continues to grow in power and popularity, with millions in the nation adopting it in their everyday lives for communication with others of different groups and nationalities, breaking down the language barriers wherever it is found. In Bumbai, the main buildings and machines for the shipyards and dry docks are built and hopes are it is nearing completion. The government knows it is putting a drain on resources, but the ports keep the funds coming in for the project. Many of the islands continue to be dredged to make extra land and hopefully build a good base for the naval yards - yep, I am finally creating the land for OTL Mumbai. Integration on the island of Lanka is complete. The north of the island is united with its Orissan counter part in the border redrawings and the south becomes a vassal. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and many thousands of Maharajyans seeking to move into the colonies of the nation continue abroad, seeking additional opportunities there. Uttarshina is expanded by 1150 km inland toward Brasil, increasingly closing the final gap between the two territories. Arab Bombay begins to see a lot of merchants who do not fit in with Orissa head back to the Arabian Federation. Many buy equipment from the military to help re-arm the Federation. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into all parts of the Maharajya. The Uda Code continues to grow in popularity and becomes used more often than not by communicators. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. Patagoshina is expanded 6150 km to the north, seeking to gain access to the precious resources in the region. Dakshin Aprika continues to expand its borders, doing so by expanding 15,000 km inland. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each into the Sahara to gain access to the desert trade routes. The Gold Coast is expanded by 650 km to cater to the growing population and immigration to the territory. Orissan Aprika is expanded by 18,150 km. The new territories captured by the United Maharajya help to provide extra manpower. Afghan continues to see huge efforts to integrate the nation better with the United Maharajya. Its economy is built up as more Orissans move into the nations seeking jobs and helping bring the tribes to cities to work. With huge rebellions going on in northern Central Asia, it is clear many troops are being lost. The government orders the unthinkable - to send more troops to make the genocide more ferocious and kill major areas of population. Almost all major towns and cities are burned. The news is kept from the Orissans. The Olympic team is congratulated. The Italians are asked if they would like to buy Manchrajdhani (OTL New Zealand) from Orissa due to their proximiy to Italian Australis.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure, supporting numerous development schemes throughout the nation, and promoting migration into the land. The colony of Naya Punjab is expanded by 32,150 km, with a major industrial base supporting its rapid growth. The Khmers and expand their military, economy and infrastructure, as do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands military, economy and infrastructure. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance. Butung develops its infrastructure, and its military and economy are expanded. Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km, and tens of thousands continue to flee, as the Welsh propaganda has taken root with the people, giving false belief of the Orissan administrators' intentions. The former state of Al Khalil is renamed to Naya Mataram to honour the former colony which was destroyed. It is expanded 15,000 km and huge number of colonists from Mataram arrive to colonise the nation.
  • In the Imperium Africana, the Uda Code continues to be taught to those sending and receiving messages to make their life easier and make communication easier. The opinion of the British Isles becomes commonplace - hate. The language of Sankala continues to become very popular. As a first language, pupils learn it dedicatedly as they know it would become the language which could be communicated fluently with Orissans. The Imperium continues its railroad projects. The large number of railroads brings greater progress to the nation and the industrial zone moves northward. Consolidation of the many new lands integrated continues. Port towns continue to grow and fishing becomes a large source of income. The new roads to these towns help spread trade and make it easier for traders to enter and leave the towns for fish. The propaganda continues, fueling Ethiopian rage and helping its people to work harder and better for the nation. People work for their nation and for greater prosperity. The army is upgraded with new rifles produced and given to the army, while the navy continues to work with the Orissan navy and train together. In Bado, the process of establishing thriving towns and villages continues. The tribal people learn how to communicate by writing in Sankala, as the Ethiopians begin to implement it in schools and start to teach the Bado how to write with it. In Northern Antillia, colonists from Wahab continue to co-operate with the Inuit, providing them medicine and new goods in exchange for being able to learn more about them. Colonists from Wädäb continue to teach the Inuit a script to be able to write their language. A lot of the Inuit learn it and the the colonists encourage the people of the Inuit to inhabit permanent settlements to help gain some form of governence. Baridi sees many small outposts constructed and business opportunists head to the lands to be able to get new furs and wood. The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and intermarry. Effects can be seen in the cities and are continuing to grow. The large amount of people exchanged between Orissa and Ethiopia continues. Many Orissans begin to marry Ethiopians and visa versa in Ethiopia and its territories, causing the mixed population to grow. The nation also reports large numbers of Orissans coming into the nation to set up new lives, presumably for the same reasons. Many find employment in the reservoir projects which the Orissans excel in due to heavy experience in Orissa itself. The government begins to heavily consider beginning to greenify large tracts of lands which are not the best to farm on to make it more suitable for wildlife and make it rain. Kenya sees a huge program to integrate the new land into the nation and people are advised to move south and farm the land. A small piece is kept separate, while talks begin to extend the land of Kenya by uniting similar countries under the control of the Imperium. Mali sees growth and the nation begins to endure a large "Ethiopianising" campaign to make the Malian people think like Ethiopians and Orissans and bring them to the same level of civility. The widespread harsh treatment of former East African citizens of Arabian descent means tensions explore all over Kenya. Huge damage is caused by the rioters, who seize some of the biggest merchant ships from the Kenyan ports, not caring who they belong to. They take with them huge amounts of militaryware, focusing on this. They care little for other things apart from causing damage. At the end of the year, most these ships set off for the Arabian Federation to restart their lives and help their mother nation. The Imperium decides they are not worth fighting - even though the ships are chased and a couple are destroyed, causing tens of thousands of deaths.

1853

With the huge boost in population from the arriving immigrants of Arab Bombay and the few million from the East Africa Federation, the African Federation is able to gain much needed resources to launch invasions to regain lands of their former nation. One of the ships arriving lands in Oman - directly east of the Federation and when the number of refugees overwhelms the nation, the nation falls easily to the incoming attack of the Arabian Federation. The Federation then moves southward and captures the Shaybah, which was being influenced by the Persians. They begin to relocate many of the new settlers to the cities and towns in the Federation and the newly conquered areas. Policies of the old Federation are implemented once more, although it will take time for things to work properly once more.

The Russians expand even faster this year, 125,000 km inland. The rumblings in the Far East become even more vocal, some wanting to break away and become associated with Japan. However, Russian influence begins to spread once more and many breakaways consider aligning with the Russians once more.

This is bullshit. If the Russians are the first to expand in this area, why would these puny little Siberians want to join Japan? ~ S

I agree. I don't even understand how the Rokkaku Shogunate is even influencing them, as I'm not doing anything there. Plus, I'm friendly with Russia. -Kogasa

Just something different. It will die down in a few years after a planned year of revolutions (if you are smart enough you should be able to work out the date for this).

The troubles in Central Asia go out of hand. It is a genocide in every sense of the word. The majority of cities and towns have been destroyed and the casuality count in unknown. Hundreds of thousands flee the border into Persian Central Asia, where they cause huge amounts of damage, and ruin the work between Persia and the separatists. The Persians, too, have to send more troops and in the chaos. A Persian settlement is destroyed by separatists. The Persian army retaliates the same way as the Orissans. However, there is talk in both nations about letting the area burn and retreating back into better controlled lands.

The Kazakhs see they have been successful and know it will be easier to populate the area using their own people. The begin to spread more chaos by influencing remaining citizens in the various Khanates under China to rebel and declare their own state. Revolts begin and it becomes China's call on how to ease the problems.

Novoroyssia rejects all attempts at control being exerted. They begin to mobilise their army to ensure they are not taken over. They will vow to defend their lands from an attack (reminder, the *1.5 still appies to them) and will hope to involve more nations in their defense.

I'm not going to force them into submission, even though I might be able to. However, if they submit to rule by any other country, it had better be for a very good reason.
If you want them, go to war.
Don't try to provoke me.

1855

PMII1855

The goldrush in Vellittia continues, but at a more steady pace. The citizens of the new colonies formed from Nuova Brescia are overjoyed that their new colonial parliaments/governors have a greater understanding of, and are more sympathetic toward the issues and concerns specific to their region.

The South-Eastern corner of the Northern Island of New Zealand is hit by an immense earthquake, measuring 8.1 on the Richter scale, resulting in many deaths.

The Monster (PMII)

The situation in Central Asia completely gets out of hand. Orissan and Persian troops have been pused to the limit and reach breaking point. Both nations' generals order the retreat of their troops back into stronger held territories as towns and villages burn while farms are scorched. The number of civilians left behind is appallingly low, but it is perfect for the Kazakhs, who move in swiftly and use propaganda to get whatever towns that remain to side with them. A large majority comes under their control, while small portions of other states become independent and ask the Chinese for protection. Note: this rebellion included more than just the lands conquered by Persia and Orissa. Don't be surprised when the map I upload to show the new borders' reflects this fact.

The Arabian Federation continues to establish its control over the newly conquered territories. This becomes much easier when the migrants from the EAF are relocated to other parts of the nation and help provide much needed support for the Arabian Federation. The nations becomes highly anti-Persians and is willing to defend itself from an invasion. Other states soon see the power of the Arabian Federation grow once more and are willing to side with them in the case of war against Persia.

The harsh methods of the Chinese pay off as many of the Ugyur Turks flee to the new Kazakh state and help repopulate the areas. There are still some rumblings but China's problems seem to be calming down. This also opens up the chance for the Han to migrate to new farmlands left by the fleeing Ugyurs.

The Russians continue to expand - having expanded a lot in Siberia. Rumblings continue in the Far East. The far eastern territories of Russia are weakly connected to the west, lightly settled by Russia, and mostly dominated by the local peoples. Russian resources have allowed the local Evenks and Jurchen to flourish more than they ever did.

Hunting of the buffalo continue as more of their skins are used as clothing and teepee coverings, and more of their meat is used to feed the growing population. The palisade wall idea has been completed on smaller towns closer to the capital Wiconwico U and has now also completed on more outlying towns. The tribal feudal system continues its expansion into more parts of Lakota lands, expanding the system. Trade with the Mayans and the Apache continues, growing the Lakota tribal economy.

    • The Lakota accept the alliance and offer a trade agreement.

  • Persia, content with the fact that the chaos in central Asia has died down enough, begins to extend greater privileges to the Turkomens who happily live under Persian rule. Propaganda and pro-Persian information is spread throughout the nation by Persian businessmen who are benefiting from the increased size of the Empire. We begin to send some funds to the Kazakhs to prevent them from angering. We continue to send ideas into the Caucusus about the need for Persian protection, and continue to work on puppetization for a few of the states (Year 2). Nestorianism continues to be a driving force in the Persian lands. The military grows in Persia and all of its vassals.

  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry throughout the country, with the heavy industry spreading northward from the Danish provinces. The southern and central Swedish provinces are now part of the industrial heartland started in the Danish provinces. The three major religions of Scandinavia continue expanding in their new provinces. Scandinavian industry begins to grow in the new provinces with railroads spreading across the land and the cities growing more industrialized. The Scandinavian Russians continue to assimilate into Scandinavia, further improving the economy. The Scandinavian language continues to be taught to the new Scandinavians, who are still encouraged to hold onto their heritage, but think of themselves as Scandinavians first. As such, much of the new population now thinks of themselves as Scandinavians first. Relations cool severely with the Russians, as they have repeatedly sent envoys to attempt to get the non-existant nation of Suur-Suomi to revolt from Scandinavia. Their efforts, which are increasingly disconnected from reality, only serve to alienate the various peoples from Russian rule. This continuing trend of Russia's Tsar ignoring reality to pursue his fantasy agenda leads Scandinavia to call Ivan IV "the Mad Tsar". Effegies of the Mad Tsar are burnt in Turku and Helsinki, and all Russian sympathizers are deported. This quite emphatically kills the already chances of them returning to Russia, as literally no supporters of this remain in Scandinavia. This also creates a new holliday, known as Tsaarin Päivä (Tsar's Day), which slowly evolves into a festival along the lives of Mardi Gras or Carnivale.
    • The map shows a nation in Karelia. Your argument is invalid.
    • I was under the impression that the nation in Karelia was named Karelia. The 1845 event, a reworded verion of Collie's original, states that it is named Karelia. Suur-Souomi is the nation now in Scandinavian territory. And it's the one he continues to try to improve his position in despite it not existing for over ten years.
    • A few issues with this statement, 1. you went in the 1850 year and changed the 1844 event so that Scandinavia adds Suur-Suomi. 2. My analogy stands, there is no logical reason whatsoever other than Alien Space Bats that Canada would just up and decide that they would get annexed into the USA because the Queen of Britain died. Canada and Britain share the same relationship OTL as Russia and its associates in the Russian Realm. and 3. I thought we decided long ago that mods are NOT allowed to take away territories from other nations and add it to theirs, and that that constitutes abuse of power, you said yourself that adding finland to your territory was a mistake on the part of Collie, and now you want to defend that mistake to your dying breath, almost as to insult me, you claim to want to bury the hatchet, but your actions are pretty much saying otherwise. It is you that is living a fantasy, not me.
    • I only added the anti-Russia bits because my diplomatic overtures with you were essentially ignored. And it wasn't just the Tsar that was killed. Pretty much the entire Duma was killed too. This is to emphatically state that Suur-Suomi is out of your grasp forever. Plus there's the fact that you defender Scraw's only statement defending you just mentioned the existance of Karelia, not the ownership of FORMER Suur-Suomi.

K'onip in particular causes a stir by electing severla representatives who advocate socialism. Another surprise result sees a follower of Sapa Huacan win a seat from the rural far Northeast of the Tehuelche lands, who arrives in Ona Yagich wearing garb remeniscent of the shamans of old.

Instead, the Prime Ministership goes to the charismatic Thomas Nos'ref'fe'j'yagich, who advocates that more power be sent to local councils and advocates a decrease in the influence of the nobility. Several settlers from the Tehualche lands arrive preaching odd ideas realated to Sapa Huacan, but are not more than ten in number.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Preator Icarus continues to expand the economy, but is rumored to be less interested in day to day government as he reaches the age of 63. While he remains devoted to his radical ideas, the citizens see a drop in repression, not because Icarus has changed but because he has lost interest in the details of government. The day to day administration of the nation's booming trading port is largely left to Icarus' son, Ptolemy Ichin'Scientificus. Ptolemy, while known as corrupt, is also said to be far less interested in political radicalism than his father, and while sharing many of his father's atheist ideals, is far more concerned with his business dealings than politics. It is even said that Ptolemy is a genius in all matters of economics and trade. Icarus is greatly interested when he hears of the teachings of Sapa Huacan, and states that while he "lacks interest in fairy tales", Sapa Huacan is preaching "noble Atlantian virtues rather than cancerous royalis." He indicates a desire to make contact with Sapa Huacan, saying privately to his cabinet, "Perhaps if the sheep-people of Atlantia will not revolt when spurred by reason, perhaps they can be driven to the same noble end by the replacement of their ignoble fairy tales with new one - if relgion can be an opiate, perhaps it can also be a stimulant."
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Lando II prepares to finish his time in office, satisfied with his academic achievements and the stabilization of the Selk'nam Haruwin.

The army is upgraded with new rifles produced and given to the army, while the navy continues to work with the Orissan navy and train together. In Bado, the process of establishing thriving towns and villages continues. The tribal people learn how to communicate by writing in Sankala, as the Ethiopians begin to implement it in schools and start to teach the Bado how to write with it. In Northern Antillia, colonists from Wädäb continue to co-operate with the Inuit, providing them medicine and new goods and continue to teach the Inuit a script to be able to write their language.

The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and intermarry. Effects can be seen in the cities and are continuing to grow. The large amount of people exchanged between Orissa and Ethiopia continues. Many mixed marriages take place due to this but many families still taboo marrying an Orissan.

1856

The Kazakhs continue to send their settlers into the newly taken over lands, with the Ugyur Turks helping to increase the population of the newly conquered areas. However, huge stretches of land are completely inhabited and require more settlers to immigrate to the country. It opens up its borders to Russians willing to establish a new life in the larger nation with more plentiful land. The nation begins to become quite varied ethnically, but there are no areas where one ethnicity is dominant due to the fact most live in the towns and cities where people are more evenly spread.

The Arabian Federation continues its amping of military forces and sells of its old naval ships to surrounding weaker states and uses the funds to research and buy better armed and bigger ships. Old water harvesting techniques are started up once more to help to accommodate the large population.

The Russians continue to expand and are faced with multiple choices. They can either just continue to use their army to expand and not really care what happens east of the Urals or they can take an active interest in sending large numbers of settlers to areas which are in need of them - which would ease city problems and allow the Russians to earn more money through their trade network. It would also help quell rumblings in the Far East.

    There is a small hook up which is the missipi

    Norvorska proposes an alliance of all the anti-Neu Berlin nations to team up as allies Persia and Germany. We also make the farthest inland city at OTL city of Minneapolis called St. Dimitri. We expand Alyska and Noryvorska by the maxium each. We change are name to Child New Russia insted of Mother Russia. The Tsar and his house of Ramenov (Not Romanov) gain popularty.
  • A: Germany is on good terms with Neu Berlin. B: You cannot expand that far inland so fast. B: You can only expand Alaska by 200px at a time right now. D: Novorossiya literally means New Russia. E: Ramenov is not a Russian name. It's Polish, if anything. And the Poles are German ATL.

They are tentatively classified as Homo neandershoehlensis (Neandershoehle was the original name of the neanderthal [Neander valley]). The remains ignite questions about how another species of human-like creatures could have existed and some scientists begin to question the currently-held beliefs about natural history (Has anyone done the Theory of Evolution yet TTL?).

  • This year becomes known as the year of three coronations, where the states if Ukraine, Belarus and Suur-Suomi officially rejoin the Russian realm. The whole of Russia rejoices the return of the happy fun times before the Duma bombing, and congratulate the Finnish immigrant to Scandinavia for his election ... unless of course Scandinavia has a time machine, in which case this sets a very dangerous precedent. At this point, socialists control over 40% of the Duma, and pass Sibirian settlement legislation, sponsoring settlement in the far east, and having more and more people go there to increase influence. The Eurasian Railroad Commision (EZhK) is nearly finished the trans-Sibirian railroad. the EZhK extends Germany an offer as the EZhK officially accepts Baltica as a member (due to Riga being a previous member, that membership passes to Baltica), to create a rail and telegraph link between their network, and the German one, making the first step to making a truly European rail system. EZhK also offers membership to Germany, Scandinavia, Italy, France and China, to create a true Eurasian Railway commission, stretching from The Far East to the Atlantic Coast.
    • Baltica is a part of Germany now. They were vassalised about five years ago. (I may have read your post wrong. If so, ignore) Germany accepts linking the German rail system to the Russian one and begins laying telegraph lines that will connect with Russia.
      • What I meant was that Baltica should have become a member of RZhK as soon as Riga got annexed, which is before you took Baltica.
    • I`m Scandinavia, not Sweden. I`ve had Suur-Suomi for years. And I don`t think TOB wants you to gobble up his nation like that.
    • Look at the Kiev Conference, and no, you have not had Suur-Suomi at all. No logical reason whatsoever that a powerful independent nation would joint a rival power. Also, suppressing dissent by removing my comments ...
    • I don't recognize this. I made double sure I could vassalise before I even attempted to vassalise the nation. No mod ever stopped me from seizing it. TBH all I wanted was Prussia, which is German. I am willing to negotiate and you get the Baltics, but I request that Prussia remain in German hands. I've worked hard to ensure that they come back to Germany.
  • Neu Berlin expands military. Georgia continues to influence Druzia, and it decides to merge with Georgia into Greater Transcaucasia next year. Kanada expands 15,000 sq km north.
  • In the Imperium Africana, the Uda Code continues to be taught to those sending and receiving messages to make their life easier and make communication easier.

In Bado, the process of establishing thriving towns and villages continues. The tribal people learn how to communicate by writing in Sankala, as the Ethiopians begin to implement it in schools and start to teach the Bado how to write with it. In Northern Antillia, colonists from Wädäb continue to co-operate with the Inuit, providing them medicine and new goods and continue to teach the Inuit a script to be able to write their language. A lot of the Inuit learn it and the the colonists encourage the people of the Inuit to inhabit permanent settlements to help gain some form of governence. Baridi sees many small outposts constructed and business opportunists head to the lands to be able to get new furs and wood. The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and intermarry. Effects can be seen in the cities and are continuing to grow. The large amount of people exchanged between Orissa and Ethiopia continues. Many mixed marriages take place due to this but many families still taboo marrying an Orissan. Reservoirs help to start to greenify large tracts of lands which are not the best to farm on to make it more suitable for wildlife and make it rain. This will help the nation greatly. Kenya sees a huge program to integrate the new land into the nation and people are advised to move south and farm the land. Mali sees growth and the "Ethiopianising" campaign continues at full speed. Hospitals and other basic services like schools are developed. With the severe depopulation of some parts of Kenya because of Arabians leaving the nation, many Ethiopians head down into the nation and can start new lives. It also opens up new jobs for arriving Orissans.

Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation, while Sankala grows even more as the main language. Railroad construction continues.

Its economy is built up as more Orissans move into the nations seeking jobs and helping bring the tribes to cities to work. With the withdrawal of troops from Central Asia - the area is declared a no-go for generals. Most of the soldiers are given time off due to such significant fighting and have to rest. They are replaced by soldiers from other sections of the nation and the Afghan border becomes heavily manned. The Italians are asked again if they would like to buy Manchrajdhani (OTL New Zealand) from Orissa due to their proximiy to Italian Australis. However, seeing the huge earthquake, large funding is sent to help rescue people and rebuild the area which has been hit by the earthquake. The army begins to be given better rifles.

1857

Large stretches of Kazakh land continue to be unoccupied due to the vastness of the new lands conquered. Significantly large numbers of people are found living in towns and cities and the need for more immigrants continues. Russians are still encouraged to help occupy the lands. Rumblings of pro-Russianism begin in the nation as the need arises for a strong ally once more.

The Arabian Federation begins to fund pan-Arabianism groups all around the region - hoping to unite the area once more under the Arabian banner. These groups soon begin to protest in their respective nations'.

With the passing of the Siberian Settlement in the Russian Duma, hundreds of thousands head out to the east hoping to start up new lives. Word gets round to the Duma that the Kazakhs would be interested in opening their borders to Russian citizens due to the fact that large portions of the nation is completely uninhabited. The Duma needs to debate on this issue. However, Russian power begins to grow once more, and with this - so does Russian nationalism in various breakaways.

In the German relms, many Slavic groups begin to cry out for independence, citing the fact that they would rather be in control of their own matters than be run by another nation. These mainly include Slovaks and Poles. The Czechs have no part in this due to the fact that Bohemia now mainly consists of a mixed German-Czech population who identify themselves as German rather than Slavic.

I don't see how this is possible. 1 Slovakia and Poland are given relative autonomy. They share all the rights and perks of being German, they are completely free, they have their own governing body composed by their own people. There is no logical reason to say they want to control themselves. They practically already do, each member state has a high level of autonomy. Bavaria and Saxony for instance are both still kingdoms, despite being states in the Empire. All are equal and free in Germany. I've given them all sorts of freedoms, and let's not forget they've been under German control so long in ATL they don't really have a culture - they are German. Under Brandenburg first, then Germany.
The Czechs were under German control for so long in OTL too, they still rebelled. Same happened with Poland, which was divided up between three powers - still rebelled. And this is the time things like this are going to happen.
The German Empire is still relatively young, and it has worked hard to bring liberty and freedom to its people. I just can't see how they are rebelling they have no reason to. Their nation is ran by a home Slavic government, the only thing Germany oversees is currency and military, they have their own government, they have their own military and economy, they are practically independent, they merely rely on Germany to protect them and use German currency.
Poland has been German for centuries now, and they have always enjoyed their freedom. No comment on Slovakia.

In Baltica, this is reversed as the Germans under Baltic rule begin to protest as its people protest on the streets, wanting to join the German Empire and get away from Baltic influence. They want to live under a nation full of Germans.

Many Levantines in Orissan Aprika also begin to cause unrest stating the Orissan government has not done enough for them and they would like to establish their own parliaments. This leads to many beginning to pack up and move to parts which Orissan control is less.

  • This is the colony in OTL South Africa right? My guess is that the most lawless area of that place is the Northern interior where you have a projection that runs around a neighboring NPC state and up into what I think is OTL Botswana. That thing has to be impossible to control. Commandante Lemming (talk) 16:40, October 17, 2013 (UTC)
  • You has helped me a lot. Thanks! XD

In Atlantia, the followers of Sapa Huacan and A'Asabism begin to grow more vocal and violent. Sapa makes a revolutionary speech which inspires thousands to follow him and his teachings and this begins to cause unrest. He responds to Icarus and tells him he is willing to talk to him and tells him he is interested in listening to his ideas.

In Far Eastern Mayan territories, many begin to demand the Mayans give them more space and let them be. These areas soon begin to open up to Novorossya and other states in Eastern Antillia.

  • I'm not sure I understand the context here. The Eastern territories want more space, but the space is opened up to other nations? This doesn't make sense.

The world holds its breath.

  • Persia's growth economically continues, and the gap between the wealthy and poor continues to shrink, due to policies of the Parliament that are aimed at making the entirety of the Empire economically prosperous. With Baghdad, Kuwait and Persia all combined into one entity now, the government has grown more efficient for these core regions. The merging of Mesopotamian and Persian cultures continues, influenced by art, architecture and literature. Turkomenistan also begins to merge culturally with Persia. The Nestorian Church stops sending new missionaries, which helps to relieve tensions also. Nonetheless, conversion continues at a slower pace. The government under the Republican Monarchy is still running smoothly. Kurdistan and Georgia are vassals of the Republican Monarchy, and an effort to prevent their secession is made, leading to their happiness with the Persian leaders. Ha'il and Khafji are also vassals. Economy grows.
  • Shaybah, Yemen and Najran, are all operating well, content with the Persian Empire. The growth of cities like Sana'a and Aden become important to the economy of this region.

Aymara expands at 10,000 sq km inland while Kingsland and Vellettia expands by 20,000 sq km each in Australia. Italia reorganises its colonies. Tsingapore continues to be an economic powerhouse for Italia. Work to extend the rail network continues with minor lines springing up. Passenger and freight trains break social and cultural barriers and make travel a lot more affordable. Many factories of different types continue to be set up around Italia. Italia after much thought and negotiations agrees to purchase and add Manchrajdhani to Pacifico.
  • Nuovo Italia expands its economy seeking to become a leading trade nation in the Antilias as Italia is in Europe.
  • Romania works on its economy. Siam and Malacca work on their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies.
  • The Union of the Benelux, Brittany, Normandy and the British states of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales co-operate in improving infrastructure. Scotland and Wales grow concerned at England's military buildup.
  • The Levantine Kingdom continues further strengthening of infrastructure. The Nile sees the rise of factories similar to those in Florence.
  • The Maldives continues naval buildup.
  • China continues to industrialize and expand its cities as more steel factories are built in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Equalism continues to rise in Guangzhou as the economy and military both increase this year. New Manchuria and Baitudi both expand by 16,000 sq km. Mögas expands by 8000 sq km as well. Meanwhile, work on the Trans-Manchurian railway continues. China accepts the membership offer.
  • Korea expands its military and economy. While industrialism hasn't caught on like it has in China, railways throughout the nation are built.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Air Furnaces and kelp fetrilizers spread throughout the country, reaching the main cities like Ona Yagich. However, there is some concern that the power stucture of the nation could be disrupted by the fact that industrialization is taking hold faster in the Northern Cities of Teushen Yijich and Jenjinkon Lehe - which were previously considered secondary cities and backwaters. Teushen Yijich in particular is growing rapidly as Teushen peasants flock from the countryside to work in the rapidly expanding industries. Emboldened by advances in fertilizer technology, an entrepreneaur named Paschal Tnop'ud'ijich constructs a vast chemical research facility in Teushen Yijich to experiment with other chemicals used in more developed nations. Paschal is reputed to be the richest businessman in the entire Haruwin. Meanwhile, the isolated inland city of Jenjinkon Lehe sees several industrialists begin experimenting with steam power, most prominent among thme being a rural guanaco-herding magnate named Cornelius Ťlḯᶀ'reḓ'nǎv'chờn, who is rumored to be a secret follower of A'asabism despite his great wealth. Prime Minister Lloyd Morgan continues to be popular, as does King David II. Athletes are welcomed back from the Olympics, where they finished respectably for the second time. Repeated attempts are made to contact A'asab/Sapa Huacan.
    • ​By far your craziest name yet, Lemming!
    • LOL really? So you think the diaciritc marks are worse than the multi--line stuff? Anyway he's ethnic Tehuelche and I've deeided that ethnic group is going do be differentiated by diacritic marks in their names. Also all that stuff is hiding coded messages if you can find them. :-)
  • Kingdom of Yagich Rafael: Military and economy expand. Prime Minister Thomas is widely popular and implements reforms dividing the nation into five districts and granting specifica powers to each district rather than parliament. A party coaleseces areound him who are known as the "Democratic-Localists" as opposed to the "Federalists" who support former Prime Minister John. King Gavin Peter remains very popular, although his two daughters Scholastica and Natalia Praxedes have nearly eclipsed him in terms of public adulation. Scholastica in particular is extremely popular and her tenth birthday becomes a massive spontaneous celebration for the public. Plates depticting the two princesses become cherished souveniers. The Olympic team is welcomed back after and extremely disappointing result, but King Gavin Peter says that sport will remain a priority for his government, as the previous Olympics gave so much to the nation. He encourages young athletes to train hard for the next games, and insists that Yagich Rafael Yagich will continue to bid for an eventual Olympic Games - with a focus on organizing fore the 1864 games. The Yagich Rafael National Olympic Commitee (YRNOC) is formed as an administrative body to oversee Yagich Rafael's continuing interest in the games - the first organization of its kind outside of Bavaria - and a great stadium is ordered to be built in Yagich Rafael Yagich.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Military and economy continue to expand. Praetor Icarus is elated that his crackdown on athletes has generated such a superior showing in the Olympics, finishing second behind only Germany. A great parade is held in the city of M.P.S. to welcome the athletes back and Icarus wildly declares that "Scientific values and methods have triumphed over the religious and the royalists! We cannot be stopped, and our ideas will continue to make us stronger than those infected by the philosophical viruses of Europe!". Notably absent from the parade as a javelin thrower names Plato Htlich, whose last place showing in his event is said to have cost the Praetorate first place. Icarus later calls the entire team for a "motivational session" at the palace, where Icarus orders Plato executed in front of the rest of the team. Icarus formally invites A'asab to visit and offers ther services of his best scientists to teach him the "paths of the heavens".
  • In the Imperium Africana, the Uda Code continues to be taught to those sending and receiving messages to make their life easier and make communication easier. Sankala continues to gain prominence. With the large numbers of arriving Orissans, many shops put up signs in Sankala as well as the local language. The Imperium continues its railroad projects and many people travel all around the nation for work. Consolidation of the integrated lands continue. The propaganda continues, fueling Ethiopian rage and helping its people to work harder and better for the nation. People work for their nation and for greater prosperity. The army is upgraded with new rifles produced and given to the army, while the navy continues to work with the Orissan navy and train together. In Bado, the process of establishing thriving towns and villages continues. The tribal people learn how to communicate by writing in Sankala, as the Ethiopians begin to implement it in schools and start to teach the Bado how to write with it. In Northern Antillia, colonists from Wädäb continue to co-operate with the Inuit, providing them medicine and new goods and continue to teach the Inuit a script to be able to write their language. A lot of the Inuit learn it and the the colonists encourage the people of the Inuit to inhabit permanent settlements to help gain some form of governence. Baridi sees many small outposts constructed and business opportunists head to the lands to be able to get new furs and wood. The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and intermarry. Effects can be seen in the cities and are continuing to grow. The large amount of people exchanged between Orissa and Ethiopia continues. Many mixed marriages take place due to this but many families still taboo marrying an Orissan. Reservoirs help to start to greenify large tracts of lands which are not the best to farm on to make it more suitable for wildlife and make it rain. This will help the nation greatly. Kenya sees a huge program to integrate the new land into the nation and people are advised to move south and farm the land. Mali sees growth and the "Ethiopianising" campaign continues at full speed. Hospitals and other basic services like schools are developed. With the severe depopulation of some parts of Kenya because of Arabians leaving the nation, many Ethiopians head down into the nation and can start new lives. It also opens up new jobs for arriving Orissans.
  • Wärqama is expanded by 10,000 km, focusing its expansion on the borders of Tojiko. Wädäb expands by 12,000 km inland, trying to get to the Northern Lakes.

Dafur expands 20,000 km westward and Kitara expands 15,000 km northward. Oyo, Benin and Yuroboland also all expand by 15,000 km into the civil disarray of the two states to its north. New Oman expands 15,000 km inward, with the gold helping pay off various Ethiopian debts around the world and help create a boom. The military, economy and infrastructure of all territories are expanded.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues as the government continues to convince its people that their hard work and loyalty is necessary to the survival of their people and state. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation, while Sankala grows even more as the main language. Railroad construction continues. In Bumbai, the shipyards near completion and there is huge anticipation. Due to the monstrous size of the shipyards, the upgrading of equipment should be fairly easy compared to other shipyards. Many of the islands offshore Bumbai continue to be dredged to create a large enough landmass for future projects. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and Uttarshina is expanded by 1150 km. Arab Bombay has lost most of the former Arabian merchants who did not wish to stay within the city anymore. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into all parts of the Maharajya.

The Gold Coast is expanded by 650 km. Orissan Aprika is expanded by 24,150 km. The new territories captured by the United Maharajya help to provide extra manpower. Afghan continues to see huge efforts to integrate the nation better with the United Maharajya. Its economy is built up as more Orissans move into the nations seeking jobs and helping bring the tribes to cities to work. With the withdrawal of troops from Central Asia - the area is declared a no-go for generals. Most of the soldiers are given time off due to such significant fighting and have to rest. They are replaced by soldiers from other sections of the nation and the Afghan border becomes heavily manned. The Italians are asked again if they would like to buy Manchrajdhani (OTL New Zealand) from Orissa due to their proximiy to Italian Australis. However, seeing the huge earthquake, large funding is sent to help rescue people and rebuild the area which has been hit by the earthquake. The army begins to be given better rifles. Many Jains once more begin to settle and the conversion of those who were converted to Islam back into following Jainism begins in earnest. Jainistan is expanded by 15,000 km.

Butung develops its infrastructure, and its military and economy are expanded. Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km, but many people finally realise that all the Welsh propaganda was completely misplaced and wrong and begin to live calm lives within the Kongo. Naya Mataram is expanded 15,000 km and huge number of colonists from Mataram arrive to colonise the nation. Cebu and Mataram finish their war against Bakryeurn.
  • MayanEmpire1857

    Current political situation in the Mayan Empire

    The Mayan Empire
    continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. (For the record, I was already planning to do this) The Colonial Government of Greater Kaliforno in Xaman begins to see a split, with most of the territories desiring to join the Empire, to enjoy the benefits of full citizenship. However, some small pockets of resistance are met in the east, bordering Novoroyssia. The Mayan government decides to split the colony, most being absorbed into the Empire, while the eastern territories are reorganized into a vassal state, named Lakin. More branch lines are created for the railroad, connecting more large markets. As a result of the expanding rail network, the economy booms. Glass, steel and concrete become common building materials in the southern provinces. Some of these establishments also appear in Mutul and Azteca. Trade throughout North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia. The Juun family continues improving the national public school system. More universities are established in lower class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca. Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 20,600 km and Haven expands 12,400 km.
  • Neu Berlin, Georgia and Kanada all expand military. Kanada expands 15,000 sq km. Georgia and Druzia are united into Greater Transcaucasia this year, and this news is celebrated across the land. (Just give me time to go after the rest of Transcaucasia and off they will revolt.) Neu Germanica expands 4000 sq km.

1858

​Germany sees problems arise when the Poles begin to rebel on the streets, asking for full autonomy and control over all their own matters. They state they have become tired of German control over them and would like to have their own people decide their own fate. Seeing this, the Slovaks flare up too, protesting for their own state free of German control. If the Germans do not sort out the situation, things may turn bloody.

The Prussians too take to the streets. Revolts take place all over former Prussia and the revolutionaries capture many key buildings mot only in Prussia but in other regions of Baltica too. Eventually, the Baltican government relents and allows them independence. They soon ask the Germans whether there would be able to join the nation as a kingdom and once more live in the same land as their brethren.

Pan-Arabian revolutionaries begin to cause unrest in many Arabian states, which once more wish to be under a strong Arab banner and powerful in the eyes of the world. The Arabian Federation declares its complete support for the action and promises the revolutionaries this will happen.

Inspired by their northern Slavic brothers, the Yugoslavians begin to March on the streets demanding the Italians release them from the claims of its imperialism. They feel they have too long been under the Italians and want the same things as the Poles up north want. (Scan have a look at Andrew's talk page to see what a possible solution to this is).

Objection, Yugoslavia and Italia have become a lot more integrated over the last 200+ years. They (Yugoslavia) also have their own king and conduct their own affairs. The two kingdoms are dynastically and diplomatically in union.
Take care of it the same way the Germans will.

Pro-Russian rebellions hit multiple states in the region as people feel once more that Russia has grown powerful, especially seeing their rapid expansion in Siberia and the migration of its citizens to new and fertile lands. Most of the breakaways speak in Russian and even though the new states have tried to establish their almost dead languages once more, most still feel they are better with Russia. These states include the Cherkassk Republic, Astrakhan and very surprisingly the Kazakhs.

The recent immigration of thousands of Russians in Kazakh has caused a huge increase in pro-Russia feelings in the state. Many begin to march on the streets demanding greater links with Russia. While in the eastern sections of Ukraine, many begin to demand they fully join with Russia once more, and they would like nothing to do with the Ukraine.

You realize that we resolved this in chat.
I know you two have one leader, but here the extreme east breaks away to Russia.

However, it isn't completely plain sailing for Russia. In Siberia, ethnicities such as the Evenks, Tungus and Chukchi cause chaos to try to make the Russians give them more freedom and possibly make the Russians grant them their own state. How Russia handles the situation could impact how support for it in the other states is affected.

The Suur-Saami/Finland/Karelia declare complete support for the Scandinavians. They believe their links with Russia have come to an end and wish the Russians the best of luck. They promise to keep positive links with the nation but believe that their future lies better with other Nordic powers.

How does this make sense? Russia was just crowned two years ago, and regained the Saami province about five years ago? How does this make logic? Also, the main reason I want Finland is to not have Scandinavia be in control of the Baltic, No one nation should control Russia's link to the Atlantic.
No nation does. As an independent mod, I make the ruling that the Saami fall into the hands of Scandinavia. Look, are you really going to go after a bunch of semi-nomads or are you going to go and support multiple states which need Russian support to fall in line with Russia.

In southern Atlantia, A'Asabism and its followers incite huge revolts all over the region. They spread their ideas into rural Argentina where the natives take to the ideas favourably, along with already adding more ferocity in Patagoshina. They also cause huge unresty in the natives in French Argentine. Many fear that this could cause the whole region to descend into chaos.

The Maori use this time to strike out against the Orissans, wanting to gain better representation and be considered equals to the Orissans. In Orissan Aprika too, problems arise as many of the Levantine colonists - or better known as Africinterni - begin their trek inland to establish better controls in their own region. They declare their Boer state in the area west of Tswana and expand it to take up more and as well as taking some land from Tojiko, causing them to become at odds with each other.

Can you at least try to refer to my Japanese nations by their actual name, instead of calling them all "Japanese Republic"? You don't have to spell the name correctly, but at least try. By the way, I changed the Japanese Republic in this event to Tojiko. -Kogasa
LOL, sorry Kogasa. But you are a mod too, so you can easily change the name. :D ~Imp

In Baghdad, the under-represented Shias declare the creation of their own state independent of Persian control. The Kurds also use this opportunity to strike out at the Persians and capture a lot of land in the former areas of Baghdad.

LOL "Kruds". Best. Typo. EVER. Commandante Lemming (talk) 15:03, October 18, 2013 (UTC)

However, it's not only Orissan Aprika where former colonists have become discontent with the ruling government. In Antillia, tens of thousands of former Russian colonists move out of Kanada and establish their own state, free of Germanic influence. The Vnutriantiliki, as they come to be known, move around and establish hundreds of small settlements deep in the interior of the region. The Cree and River Lakota peoples' too begin to form their own state with Neu Berliner technology leaking through. Their nation lies the lake that looks like a head and goes as far as the Plains Lakota state (doesn't border it).

Maps on the situation of the world currently are on the talkpage.

The World is engulfed in Revolutionary Fervor. Future generations will come to know it the the Revolutions of 1858. The nations around the world now will refer to it simply as the "Year of Hell"

  • Persia's Shah begins to realize that his nation is in decline due to nationalistic fervor. He begins to focus on the nations he can control, and focuses on industrialization. The progress made in the past few years has been removed due to the rebellions, and many find him to be incapable in his old age. As a result. he abdicates all legal power to his son, the Shahzada. The cities of Baghdad and New Persepolis receive huge influx of refugees, leading to a housing problem, but killing the labor shortage. The economy is growing due to the urbanization. In Turkomenistan, those who have not fled hope that the war will soon be over.
  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation begins to spread along the Pekitanoui River, mainly in the southern portion, increasing the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continue as more of their skins are used as clothing and teepee coverings, and more of their meat is used to feed the growing population. The palisade wall idea has been completed on smaller towns closer to the capital Wiconwico U and has now also completed on more outlying towns. The tribal feudal system continues its expansion into more parts of Lakota lands, expanding the system. Trade with the Mayans and the Apache continues, growing the Lakota tribal economy.

Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. The Reichstag hears the cries of the Polish and Slavic peoples. The Reichstag votes to allow both Poland and Slovakia to become Dominions (puppets), granting them their own independent nation. The government looks to the Russian Federation as an example and passes a series of reforms to go from the German Empire into the United German Commonwealth. Poland and Slovakia are now free, but they continue to use the German Reichsmark and still rely on the German military for safety. Prussia is welcomed by the Commonwealth with open arms. Germany states that if Baltica trys in any way to harm the Prussian people, they will feel the wrath of the German war machine. The conversion to a commonwealth based nation will take several years. Overseas Bavarian Australis is elevated to dominion status. Australis takes the name the Imperial Commonwealth of Australis.

Opponents cite the Bible as evidence against it, but some members of the Catholic clergy write that the theory technically does not infringe on belief. The Primate, in conjunction with the Chancellors of the two major universities (Magdeburg and Kassel), organises a series of debates to take place next year. In Saxon Australis, a small movement springs up. Inspired by Bavarian Australis' new Dominion status, they seek the same for Saxon Australis. However, there is very large opposition, especially amongst businesspeople. They say that Saxon Australis, unlike BA, has no big money-making industry, and must rely on shipping and Saxon investment. The anti-dominionists say that were SA to become a dominion, they would lose a lot of the Imperial government's investment and the economy would crumble, a claim which is backed up by treasury officials. "Besides," says a prominent anti-dominionist, "we have a colonial parliament, what more could one want?" Saxon West Africa expands 2000 sq km along the Teke border. Tanimbarkai begins wrapping up the war.

  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Industrialization continues to explode across the Northern part of the Haruwin. Peasants flock to Teushen Yijich, including many from the South, causing the city to become a massive sprawl with many slums on the outskirts. Many refer to the new city as "The City of Opportunity". Paschal Tnop'ud'ijich's chemical works continue to grow, with multiple new chemicals hiting the market for industrial purposes, a sprawling new factory is planned on the outskirts of the city. Paschal formally incorporates his business as the TNOPUD Corporation, and makes plans to sell stock certificates after the European fashion, a first for the Haruwin. In Jenjinkon Lehe, Cornelius Ťlḯᶀ'reḓ'nǎv'chờn successfully produces multiple steam engines and announces that within five years he plans to build a railway from Jenjinkon Lehe to Teushen Yijich, connecting the two Northern centers and providing a vital link for the isoalted Jenjinkon Lehe. In the South, air furnaces continue to prolifereate and TNOPUD chemicals spark innovations as they hit the market. The proliferation of industry is strong in De Mor Tir City, where industrious Welshmen quickly adapt to new technologies that rival what the Welsh government used to produce. Air furnaces are finally transported to the the island of K'onip and begin to proliferate as a heat source for the very cold island.

Our fishing industry also increases slightly thanks in part to meager government subsidies and investments. Despite this a large majority of food consumed on the islands remains imported. The government commissions the creation of several public primary schools across the islands, which begin construction a few months later, to allow greater access to schooling for island inhabitants. The government also officially creates an armed forces for the purpose of protecting the islands in case of attack. Approximately 6500 men begin training for the armed forces, with the first 3000 creating the 1st Infantry Regiment, stationed in Praia.

The pro-evolutionists open their case with a dispensation on the Neanderhoehle man, which is rebutted by the anti-evolutioners by Biblical references to "giants" and such. Undeterred, Schumaker unveils his latest findings: during his exploration of the isles of Tanimbarkai, he noticed the subtle differences in the birds which lived on the different islands, some of which were mere km apart. How, he asks, could such subtle differences be explained except by natural and sexual selection? The eloquent phrases of Schumaker and his supporters, combined by the soundness of their claims, manages to win over some of the proponents of Intelligent design. Some, however, are unconvinced, and ask him how he could deny God with his claims. Schumaker responds, saying "Evolution does not deny God. Who else but the Heavenly father could create beings so perfect as to be able to adapt of their own volition?" And with that, he closes the debate. I other news, the disturbances in the [electrical] telegraphic signals do not affect Saxony that much, thanks to the back-up manual "visual telegraph" system.

With the severe depopulation of some parts of Kenya because of Arabians leaving the nation, many Ethiopians head down into the nation and can start new lives. It also opens up new jobs for arriving Orissans.

Afghan continues to see huge efforts to integrate the nation better with the United Maharajya. Its economy is built up as more Orissans move into the nations seeking jobs and helping bring the tribes to cities to work. The Afghan border continues to be heavily manned. The Italians are sold the colony and the funds derived help other projects. With the Maori rebellion - troops attack the Maori hard and destroy them. The army begins to be given better rifles. Many Jains once more begin to settle and the conversion of those who were converted to Islam back into following Jainism begins in earnest. Jainistan is expanded by 15,000 km. Orissan Aprika sees its expansion routes closed off by the Boers, and asks the United Maharajyan government to negotiate with the Japanese to buy some land. The Boers expand their state 24,150 km northeast (I won't waste my colonial expansion :P) as tens of thousands of Levantine Boers move northward. The Orissans continue to try to get the Boers back into the state but all negotiations are stonewalled and the United Maharajya deides to try to contain them for now and hopefully unite with them sometime in the future. If diplomacy does not work - they will look to invade them and take them out. The United Maharajya engages in negotiations with the Japanese and offers them Bykuraen back in exchange for some land in Africa to allow the colony of Orissan Aprika to expand once more. They also try to talk to the natives in Atlantia and try to convince them that the way of A'Asabism is wrong and the should follow Hinduism.
    • Empress Go-Shōtoku of the Rokkaku Shogunate agrees to the deal.
    • President Saigō Taketo of Tojiko grumpily accepts Orissa offer and cedes them some land.

Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km, but many people finally realise that all the Welsh propaganda was completely misplaced and wrong and begin to live calm lives within the Kongo. Naya Mataram is expanded 15,000 km and huge number of colonists from Mataram arrive to colonise the nation.
  • Neu Berlin expands its military. The great city of Neu Berlin becomes a great city to be admired, and the 1860 Olympic Games are held with great success. Kanada expands 15,000 sq km, Neu Germanica expands 4000 sq km. Transcaucasia continues to influence its northern neighbor. The River Lakota nation is conquered.

1861

The Boer state has to halt expansion as the Tswana rebels begin to cause a lot of damage. It focuses its military strength on fighting them and keeping its routes protected from rebel strikes. The fighting is harsh and continues in large battles between the sides. The Boers take more slaves and harshly use them to construct multiple towns. However, a lot of the lands are deserts and thousands die of mistreatment as a result.

The A'Asabist Movement grows in strength grow in power as more and more take up the cause. The first of them in Aymara join and begin to cause the spread of the religion northward at rapid pace into other nations and colonies - prompting huge problems with containment. Many even end up in Brasil and cause problems for the arriving colonists who do not want the natives to revolt. The Portuguese dominion will have to mobilise troops and have to harshly wipe out many native villages in a bid to keep peace.

The transfer of land from Orissa to Japan and visa versa mainly goes through smoothly. However, many Japanese in Tojiko move into bigger cities to avoid Orissan troops. The sale of Manchrajdhani to Italia causes many Maori to calm down as they are unsure of what will happen next and look to bide their time.

Many Nuovo Italians hear about the ideologies in the Scrunifest Destiny (Scraw its the official name because a mod says it is :P) and begin to contemplate their own version of it. They name it the Oro Pacifico Percorso or the Golden Pacific Path. The ideology spreads like wildfire and begins to grow popular with the people.

The Neu Berlin-Lakota war goes well and the Neu Berliners establish control over the state. However the lacking land connection begins to prove a problems and the Neu Berliners must expand to border the state or rebellions could take place for the state and cause large problems.

That's bullshit but OK. LOL.

Seeing the growing strength of the German nation, Tyrolia asks to be protected (vassalised) by the Germans and they hope to become closer to the state.

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada update their militaries and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, railroads continue to built in Portugal.

    • Another Trade with Portugal (PMII)
      The United Maharajya, seeing greatening trading relations with Portugal, offers to sell them more land in exchange for land in Africa. They will not cheat the Portuguese and ask only to buy roughly the same amount of land (I'll use the px count to make sure). The land coloured in a blueish green is what we are offering to trade.
    • To Buy (PMII)
      We would like to buy this land from the Portuguese (as shown on the map) in exchange for selling land in Atlantia and we hope the Portuguese see a fair deal and accept the trading of land. We will also send some gold to the Portuguese to help their nation. (They both are roughly same px size).
      • Portugal offers to give their part of the eastern shore of the Malawi lake, and maybe a part of the western shore, but still keeping acces to the Malawi lake, and take less territory from Uttarshina.
      • Completely acceptable with the United Maharajya, who will make a new map. They state they will not reduce the land given due to the fact it would be easier to control it for Portugal than Orissa (its a thank you for accepting the deal). I edited the map, what do you think?
        • Portugal asks if the border in the western margin could be moved farther north.

  • It asks Italy to allow French unification with Britanny, or Britanny's entrance to the Gaul Confederacy. Vassalization of the Southern State north to Zululand and Basotho begins. While this the A'sabism is welcomed by many natives of Riviere and the French Gaulish government declares it as a legal religion within the nation. However, it states this status may be withdrawn if the religion causes any damage or important crisis in the region, but as far as the Gaul government's concerned it's harmless. and, in fact, welcomes the religious leader to talk in Nouveau Soisson in La Riviere's Coast. While this, the creation of several new railways connecting the whole French territories begin as well as the creation of a Nouveau Seine (Magdalena River) reaching up to Nouveau Aix-Lachapelle (OTL Bogota)

In January, the Universities of Magdeburg and Kassel both petition the Landtag to sponsor an expedition to the hitherto undexplored lands of Antarktis. The Landtag grants the request. A state-of-the-art screw-powered ironclad is commissioned especially for the expedition. Supplies of every imaginable description are purchased, and the most elite sailors from the North Sea fleet are chosen to take part.

The expedition leaves in late spring to make the most of the Southern summer. Tanimbarkai continues developing the 4.8% of Sumba seized last year. Saxon Australis continues working on the Boniface-Broomestadt road, and Saxon West Africa expands 2000 sq km along the Teke border.
  • The Hellenic Union continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic peninsula. In Cyprus and Crete, cloth factories and paper mills are built and in the colonies, hospitals and health care continue to be widespread. In Constantinople and the surrounding areas, artillery begins to be built and is placed at both the Dardandelles and the Bosphorous, to protect Constantinople from attack.

    Propaganda within the Maharajya continues as the government continues to convince its people that their hard work and loyalty is necessary to the survival of their people and state. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation, while Sankala grows even more as the main language. Railroad construction continues. In Bumbai, the shipyards are completed with great prompt. There is huge celebrations and the Emperor and Maharani arrive to open to oversee its opening. The dredging of the islands of Bumbai continues at a faster pace. The finishing of the shipyards help the United Mahajyan economy grow as a huge strain for the economy has just been lifted. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues but Uttarshina does not expand. The United Maharajya makes Portugal an offer to sell its land in exchange to buy land in Aprika for the Rajputs. Arab Bombay grows as huge investments are made to the city to make it the financial hub for the idea - while umbai becomes an industrial city. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into all parts of the Maharajya. The Uda Code continues to grow in popularity and becomes used more often than not by communicators. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. The shipyards begin to build monsterous size battleships which only the Union of Imperium Africana and the United Maharajya can afford - no other nation has the huge economy of both nations combined. These ships will have six 12-inch main guns with sixteen 10 pounder secondary guns. Patagoshina is expanded 2150 km to the north. They also try to talk to the natives in Atlantia and try to convince them that the way of A'Asabism is wrong and the should follow Hinduism. However, they do not agree and the religion is declared illegal. Troops begin to be poured into the nation to try to stop violence and attack the A'Asabists if things go badly. The new territories captured by the United Maharajya help to provide extra manpower. Afghan continues to see huge efforts to integrate the nation better with the United Maharajya. Its economy is built up as more Orissans move into the nations seeking jobs and helping bring the tribes to cities to work. The Afghan border continues to be heavily manned. The army begins to be given better rifles. Many Jains once more begin to settle and the conversion of those who were converted to Islam back into following Jainism begins in earnest. Jainistan is expanded by 64,150 km. With the successful expansion of the Orissan Aprikan colony, expansion can once agan resume. Most of the expansion is conducted by the army which move northward to stop the Boer expansion. They expand by 29,150 km northward. The Boer expansion stops as they focus on fighting the Tswana revolts in many regions. Although Tswana has greater numbers, the Boers' stolen weapons from the United Maharajya are superior and allow for the defeat of much of the Tswana states. The Orissans continue to try to get the Boers back into the state but all negotiations are stonewalled and the United Maharajya deides to try to contain them for now and hopefully unite with them sometime in the future. If diplomacy does not work - they will look to invade them and take them out. Dakshin Aprika expands its borders by 32,150 km inland, with large army numbers helping to expand the state rapudly to cut off any Boer expansions. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast is expanded by 850 km. Note: Orissa has reached another stage in the industrialisation charts, so these expansions are legitimate.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure Their colony of Jainistan expands by 64,000 km as thousands head into the nation and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. Explorers also head inland and Rajputana seeks to acquire some claimed Portuguese land through the United Maharajya. The Khmers and expand their military, economy and infrastructure, as do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands military, economy and infrastructure. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance. Butung develops its infrastructure and its military and economy are expanded. Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km northward, but many people finally realise that all the Welsh propaganda was completely misplaced and wrong and begin to live calm lives within the Kongo. Naya Mataram is abosorbed into Dakshin Aprika, to which large numbers of Matarami object but they cannot do much about the issue.
  • The Russian military continues to aid Russian rebels in territories. Many states were toppled, and more troops flow into the Kazakhstan Federation, aiding the troops with better technology. Many are no match for new rifles, and Gatling guns, and explosive artillery. Talks of forming a "Far Eastern Republic" emerge in the Russian Duma. In last year's elections, the Socialists win approx. 45% of the seats in the Duma (540 seats out of 1201). The Individualists win 20% of the seats (240), 10% by other factions (120), and the remaining 25% (301) are won by independents. For the first time ever in the Russian Duma, a Socialist is appointed as the Verkhovniy Posadnik, it took almost a century, but the Socialists finally formed a government. The public education act is passed, establishing government-sponsored schools. Meanwhile, the grand opening of the Trans-Siberian Railway is a great triumph form EZhK, and EZhK (Eurasian Railroad Commission) extends membership to Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, and China once more. The opening of the railway opens the possibility of connecting Novgorod with Beijing, the Kremlin with the Forbidden City. This also bolsters settlement of Sibiria. free land is enough for some, but others are not so easily swayed, and some people in city Dumas want to restrict the movement of people within cities. However, the Supreme Court rules these laws unconstitutional, and the Duma grants the Supreme Court officially that right as the highest court in Russia. Russia's Athletes are extremely happy for having won the olympics, and yes, Russia is becoming one of the world's great athletic powers,
    • China accepted. And you need to move more people quickly, as well as stop Russian expansion for around five years to make sure most of your army can be used.
      • ​Just checking, your post just said "Agrees to membership" at the end off hand. Thanks for specifying.
    • Germany agrees to send a boards person to the Eurasian Railroad Commission. Russia is given permission to begin to link with the already present German rails in Poland.
  • In the Imperium Africana, the Uda Code continues to be taught to those sending and receiving messages to make their life easier and make communication easier. Sankala continues to gain prominence. With the large numbers of arriving Orissans, many shops put up signs in Sankala as well as the local language. The Imperium continues its railroad projects and many people travel all around the nation for work. Consolidation of the integrated lands continue. The propaganda continues, fueling Ethiopian rage and helping its people to work harder and better for the nation. People work for their nation and for greater prosperity. The army is upgraded with new rifles produced and given to the army, while the navy continues to work with the Orissan navy and train together. In Bado, the process of establishing thriving towns and villages continues. The tribal people learn how to communicate by writing in Sankala, as the Ethiopians begin to implement it in schools and start to teach the Bado how to write with it. In Northern Antillia, colonists from Wädäb continue to co-operate with the Inuit, providing them medicine and new goods and continue to teach the Inuit a script to be able to write their language. A lot of the Inuit learn it and the the colonists encourage the people of the Inuit to inhabit permanent settlements to help gain some form of governence. Baridi sees many small outposts constructed and business opportunists head to the lands to be able to get new furs and wood. The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and intermarry. Effects can be seen in the cities and are continuing to grow. The large amount of people exchanged between Orissa and Ethiopia continues. Many mixed marriages take place due to this but many families still taboo marrying an Orissan. Reservoirs help to start to greenify large tracts of lands which are not the best to farm on to make it more suitable for wildlife and make it rain. This will help the nation greatly. Kenya sees a huge program to integrate the new land into the nation and people are advised to move south and farm the land. Mali sees growth and the "Ethiopianising" campaign continues at full speed. Hospitals and other basic services like schools are developed. Kenya continues to see a greater immigration boom into the nation as many head into the nation. The Imperium thanks the United Maharajya for the gaining of new land and they thank the Japanese too. As a responding gesture - they offer the Japanese the chance to be able to emigrate into Ethiopian colonies and also offer to send Ethiopian people transport ships to take colonists willing to come to Ethiopian colonies on the Pacific Coast.
  • Wärqama is expanded by 18,000 km, focusing its expansion on the borders of the Portuguese colony of Angola?. Wädäb expands by 12,000 km inland, trying to get to the Northern Lakes. Dähnnät are expanded by 4000 km on the Portuguese colonial borders. Nyamwezi is expanded by 15,000 km southward. Kenya expands the colony of Taimaini by 8000 km on the coasts. Baridi expands by 15,000 km as the company brings in its workers to work the land and help make a profit out of this experimental endeavour. The colony of Buruk is expanded by 2000 km as well. Dafur expands 20,000 km westward and Kitara expands 15,000 km northward. Oyo and Yuroboland also expand by 15,000 km east and west respectively into uncivilised lands. New Oman expands 15,000 km inward, with the gold helping pay off various Ethiopian debts around the world and help create a boom. The military, economy and infrastructure of all territories are expanded. Sakuma is incorporated into Kenya following growing links in the region and the low population of Sakuma. Road links are soon upgraded while a few railroads are built too.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Prime Minister Shintarius continues to expand the military and economy. The military is ordered to treat A'asabist rebels with respect while diplomatic envoys are sent to A'asabist territory to seek a peaceful solution. This is unpopular in Teushen Yijich and Jenjinkon Lehe, the two industrial cities who worry that their population and productivity may suffer due to the instability. However, in the South, this approach is seen as pragmatic. The TNOPUD Corporation continues to grow and new chemicals continue to be developed. TNOPUD fertilizer is wideley used in the seas to grow increasingly more kelp, and their land-based fertilizer also increases agricultural productivity, espeically with slow growing Rafael Bread plants - a freshwater fertilizer also helps the Penguin Lily crop on K'onip (where the plant can be safely grown due to climate). In De Mor Tir City, a rival chemical company called Brythonic Elixirs gains traction due to what they claim are more sophisticated chemicals carefully produced in smaller batches compared to TNOPUD chemicals. They also begin experimenting with the manufacture of chemicals used in photography, which TNOPUD takes no interest in, and also with the extracts of the coca plant of Northern Atlantia, which is said to have energizing properties. Cornelius Ťlḯᶀ'reḓ'nǎv'chờn succeeds in producing a prototype steam locomotive that he tests outside of Jenjinkon Lehe, but finds that local metallurgy is not sufficient to produce consistent tracks and he must import steel. This is prohibitively costly, and hence he turns his research toward the production of steel for trackwork. Cornelius, rumored to be an A'asabist, is notably silent on his religion, but writes a column saying that rebellion is "harmful to human productivity" and supporting the government. King David II remains popular, although he largely stays out of limelight. Enchius Hgichin'Huash's poker games have become a highly profitable enterprise, drawing players every night of the week and stresing the capacity of the wathly homes that host them. Enchius announces that, with his earnings, he will construct a European style casino in Ona Yagich, where aristocrats can gamble to their heart's delight. The HH Grand Atlantia Casino will includ not only pooker but also games of Baccarat, Blackjack, Craps, and - most notably - several ornate roulette wheels imported from Europe. Crown Prince Maughold greatly enjoys his studies at the University of Chichen Itza, writing in a letter to his father the king, "it's as if entire new worlds open before my eyes - I study chemistry, physics, economics, political science, and every day there are new revelations about God's designs for the human race and His creation. Also, dear Father, I write that I have discovered even more beyond this, the greatest treasure God can give to man - the treasure of love." At this, the King grows concerned.
  • Kingdom of Yagich Rafael: Prime Minister Thomas continues his program of local governance, although his popularity suffers when his right-hand man becomes involved in a dueling accident and is forced to resign. King Gavin Peter generally stays out of politics, as it is his view that monarch ought to be merely a check on the darker impulses of democracy, and that the current state of affiairs shows that democracy's "more ancgelic side is currently being indulged in our nation". Yagich Chongat Yagich grows in population and is an increasingly wealthy trading port, compared to "Yagich Atticus before the Icaran scourge". The king takes great interest in his daughters' education, thinking that women ought to be as educated as men in an enlightened era. Hearing of the success of his nephew Prince Maughold at the Mayan Univeristies, he enquires to the Maya as to whether there are any elite girls schools to which he might send his daughtera, Scholastica - now 14 - and her sister Natalia Praxedes, who is 12. He writes that he wishes his two "blossoms" to have an elite primary education after which they may decide their own course with regard to future learning or marriage.
    • The Mayan Emperor (figurehead), Emperor Ekchuah, states that there are many fine schools for girls, but none so fine as the Royal Girl's Academy housed inside the gates of the Palace, where the daughters of the elite and wealthy are instructed. Scholastica and Natalia are invited to attend, should they hold an interest.
    • Yagich Rafaelite Diplomacy: Princesses Scholastica and Natalia Praxedes both desire to enrich themselves with eduction and shall begin attending the Royal Girls Academy for the fall semester of 1861 (I'm just going to assume I sent the message ridiculously early in the year).
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Preator Icarus continues to expand the economy with the help of his son Ptolemy. Increasing amounts of weaponry continue to be funneled to A'asabist rebels, including large numbers of a newly developed pressure-activated device which Icarus' military scientists call "landmines".
  • Normandy: The military expands.
  • The Mayan Empire: continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. The Empire celebrates another victory in the Olympics, this time coming in second. Influence from the Apostolic Church continues to grow in Lakin. More branch lines are created for the railroad, connecting more large markets.

Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 20,600 km and Haven expands 12,400 km.
  • Neu Berlin hears the cry of the newly conquered River Lakota and give them land surrounding their lake in order to help them form their own autonomous state. Their newly gained land expands 15,000 sq km in hopes of encircling the lake. Neu Germanica expands 4000 sq km while Neu Berlin builds up its military. Kanada also expands 15,000 sq km to make more living space. Greater Transcaucasia continues to influence its northern neighbors.

1862

The trend of neopaganism expands to Poland, where the worship of various gods reaches levels not seen fro centuries. One surprising example is Czernobog, who had never been seeen as such a major god when worship was more common.

The nations of Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and Brittany officially sign a mutual defense pact known as the Penzance Pact. Each of these nations affirm their independence from foreign interference.

"Penzance Pact" maybe? That's somehwhat centralCommandante Lemming (talk) 21:00, October 22, 2013 (UTC)

Celtic Alliance is too generic, so maybe Celtic Conference?

I'm Unsure if Normandy would join as it is a member of the Gaul Confederacy and a Culture Closer to the French. Sine dei gloriem "Ex Initio Terrae" (talk) 01:14, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry throughout the country, with the heavy industry spreading northward from the Danish provinces. The southern and central Swedish provinces are now part of the industrial heartland started in the Danish provinces. The three major religions of Scandinavia continue expanding in their new provinces. Scandinavian industry begins to grow in the new provinces with railroads spreading across the land and the cities growing more industrialized. The Scandinavians continue the process of absorbing Karelia into their nation, with railroads being spread through the new territory. New factories spring up all over Karelia, with urbanization along the lines of the rest of Scandinavia taking place. The Karelian capital city of Šuomua continues to see massive growth thanks to the influx of Scandinavian industry.
  • Lakota Tribes: Expansion of Lakota agriculture continues along the Pekitanoui River and its tributaries. Irrigation begins to spread along the Pekitanoui River, mainly in the southern portion, increasing the amount of farm and grazing lands, increasing agriculture production and attracting more buffalo. Hunting of the buffalo continue as more of their skins are used as clothing and teepee coverings, and more of their meat is used to feed the growing population. The palisade wall idea has been completed on more outlying towns, and re-inforcement of the walls inside the capital have begun, to allow for bowmen and other tribal warriors to stand upon to defend the walls, rather than standing behind them and waiting for the enemies to cross over or demolish them.. The tribal feudal system continues its expansion into more parts of Lakota lands, expanding the system to where it has now been fully adopted in all Lakota territories. Trade with the Mayans and the Apache continues, growing the Lakota tribal economy. The scouting of nearby colonies continues, as does Lakota Expansion 15,000 sq km, but west this time. The scouts begin to attempt to contact the nearby colonies (Japan, Italy and China?)
  • Cape Vert: In the cities of Praia, Nouveau Athènes, and other port cities docks and shipyards continue to be constructed, hoping to increase our naval capabilities, which will allow trade ships easier access to the islands. Recent technological advances in the field of agriculture begin to reach the islands, and increase agricultural production locally. Our fishing industry also increases slightly thanks in part to meager government subsidies and investments. Despite this a large majority of food consumed on the islands remains imported. Thanks to the government initiative a few years ago, school districts for primary schooling now cover the entirety of the nation, allowing greater access to schooling for island inhabitants. We ask the Gaul Republic to assist us in the creation of a stronger coast guard.
  • Gaul Republic: The Colonies expand. Brasilea stops expanding inland underneath the Cypriot colony and Baie d'Notre Dame expands by 36,000 sq km inland, while La Riviere expands by 2000 sq km northward, Baie d'Eric expands into western Canada, north to the Ethiopian colony. Economy is built up. Military is built up. The organization of the departments of the republic continues.

The government extends the hand to Lorraine in order to establish a steady government in the region. Begins the vassalization of La Marche. Offers an alliance to England. It asks Italy to allow French unification with Britanny, or Britanny's entrance to the Gaul Confederacy. Vassalization of the Boer statenorth to Zululand and Basotho begins. While this, the A'sabism is welcomed by many natives of Riviere and the French Gaulish government declares it as a legal religion within the nation. However, it states this status may be withdrawn if the religion causes any damage or important crisis in the region, but as far as the Gaul government's concerned it's harmless. and, in fact, welcomes the religious leader to talk in Nouveau Soisson in La Riviere's coast. While this, it responds to the Breton refusals that it this is not an Intention on culture rather than geography, as the Gaul republic or main mission is to unify all the territories that are on the gaul's Including Normandy, La Marche and Britanny, only leaving the territories that doesn't enter any of the three traditional cultural groups of the Gaul (French, Occitan and Breton Celtic groups) and as previously said, the Republic of Britanny would be assured complete freedom, as the Gaul Confederacy, is not a united nation yet, and the governments of both the Gaul Republic, and Britanny would remain independent responding only to a council of members of the Gaul Republic (five from each member nation)
  • Great Lorraine: Military is built up. School system grows. Economy is built up.

Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begin to influence governmental decisions.
  • Persia's new leadership, and the influence of the popularly elected Parliament, allow the internal workings of Persia to continue. A Pan-Persian nationalism begins to rise. The cities of Baghdad and New Persepolis receive huge influx of refugees, leading to a housing problem, but killing the labor shortage. The economy is growing due to the urbanization. In Turkomenistan, those who have not fled hope that the war will soon be over. We continue our vassalization of Kuwait.
  • The Hellenic Union continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic peninsula. In Cyprus and Crete, cloth factories and paper mills are built and in the colonies, hospitals and health care continue to be widespread. In Constantinople and the surrounding areas, artillery begins to be built and is placed at both the Dardandelles and the Bosphorous, to protect Constantinople from attack. The rumbles in the major cities become larger still and the majority of the armies are placed in control of the cities. Protesters protesting the blatant gap between the rich and the poor continue, however some are scared away by the army. The Hellenic Union continues to expand both its economy and its military and its colonies are expanded. Nea Lemesos is expanded by 24,000 sq km.

  • Cyrenaica: expands 20,000 sq km into the desert and continues to develop paper mills and cloth factories.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): German nationalism, as well as Saxon pride grows this year. This is due to many reasons. Firstly, a new opera (penned by Tristan Kietz) is performed. It is called Sigfried, and is based on the ancient German legend. It is an overnight hit, with all peformances in the Dresden Operhaus booked out for months. Sales of the sheet music and libretti make Kietz a mint, and also spreads the themes of German pride and national self-image. Kietz plans performances in Munchen, Berlin, Bamberg and Wien. Other Saxo-German writers, keen to cash in on Kietz's success, begin writing plays, operas and ballets based on Germanic folklore - some of questionable value - but others which are ingenious works of art in their own right. It is during this wave of nationalist pride that the SMS Kaiser von Antarktis arrives back in Hamburg. The ship and its crew spent the Southern summer sailing along the Antarctic coast between 20*W and 40*E degrees longtitude, mapping and making oceanographic observations along the way. They overwintered stuck in the ice making pioneering observations of Antarctic wildlife. Before departing the Antarctic at the start of the Southern spring, Captain Stahl claimed the land (between 20*W and 40*E) for Saxony, naming it Kaiser Karl Land. Upon the crew's arrival in Dresden, they are feted as national heroes. The entire Royal Guards parades through the streets and behind them: Capt. Stahl and his crew. The main street of Dresden is packed to the brim with people eager to see the "brave explorers". A medal is struck and presented to all the crewmembers, and the Emperor Karl (who is present at the celebrations) personally knights Capt. Stahl into the prestigious Order of Saint Mathilde. The country, still in the throes of "German fever" now transitions into "Antarctic fever" and commemorative glassware, china, tea towels, miniature portraits, swords, cutlery: every imaginable thing is made into an Antarctic commemorative piece. As winter closes in and the Weinachtsmaerkte begin to spring up in the cities and towns, the fevers mellow like a Yuletide fire into a great Saxo-German happiness. Anyway, in the rest of the far-flung empire, Saxon Australis continues building the highway to connect it to neighbouring Imperial Commonwealth of Australis. A prominent businessman, realising the stupidity of building a road over such a long distance, proposes that a railway line be built instead. He personally will outlay large amounts to assist the colonial government (providing he receives a tidy percentage of the income). The Governor and colonial parliament agree and work begins on the new project. Cheap workers from Tanimbarkai are shipped in to work on the project. Saxon West Africa expands 2000 sq km along the border with Teke. Germans are given new incentives to settle in the burgeoning colony, and many sign up to immigrate next year. Oh, and Saxony increases its military. Conversely, in Anhalt things have been far from the joyous "Year of Fevers" enjoyed by Saxony. A poor harvest means many poor people, often serfs, starve while their portly masters squander their grain on lavish meals and their money on gambling, some even travelling to Selk'nam to do so. Small protests led by domestic serfs are brutally suppressed by the Prince's police. The owners of any serfs killed in the uprisings are compensated for their loss. In Cologne, that County so little heard from, things progress well. There are many factories (for such a small country), and workers generally have better working conditions than in Saxony. However political freedom is at a premium here as well, and there are growing calls for an elected assembly. Calls to which the Count, living in his hilltop castle, is oblivious. Or at least, he pretends to be.
  • Bayern (Member of the German Empire): The state of Bayern builds its military along with all her colonies (Borneo). Borneo expands infrastructure and continues industry. Bavaria continues to experience a baby boom. Cities like Munchen and Bamberg grow as people flock to the cities. Work in the Imperial Capital continues at a breakneck pace. Bavaria officially retires all the old wooden ships in the royal navy. The newer ironclads and larger steamships become much more common. The German navy becomes a power to be admired in the North Seas. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. German feelings of Nationalism grow, and a desire to regain lost pride when Poland and Slovakia gained independence. Germans are not angry at them, for it was well known that this would occur. England is approached with the offer of creating a union between England and Germany. There exists many similarities between the two people. The German war machine grows as many Germans grow tired of neutrality and feel a strong feeling that Germans are a superiour people begin to surface.. Pasteurization becomes a popular means of extending the life of dairy products. In Tyrol, Henrich Elva patents the "lift" - a machine that allows easy transport between floors. In Munchen, the city council orders several of the city's riverways to be cleaned. The government begins worrying about the long term effects of Germany's rapid industrialization. Germany celebrates placing third overall in the Olympic Games. Siegfried s played in the Munchen Opera Haus and is met with great acclaim. Repairs to the Bavarian telegraph lines are complete. Fredrich Nobsson invents dynamite. Karl Lauger improves the machine gun. Elva's lifts are improved when he patents the safety brake. Elva's lifts are starting to be installed throughout Germany. Germany welcomes Tyrol as a member state of Germany. Kristof Shelds patents an improved typewriter, though it is a few years away from mass production. Johan Mycroft, a prominent publisher publishes a new book titled "Alice in Neverland, and the Confounding Spyglass." which becomes a fairly popular writing. In Hamburg, a new exploration ship called Kaiseren Amelia sets sail to chart the Arctic Circle. German nationalism continues to grow. Baltica, still resentful after the secession of Prussia to Germany, continues to fight little skirmishes on the German border. The German High Command orders Baltica to stand down or face imminent invasion. Robert Benz' internal combustion engine continues to improve. Benz released his first "Automatisierte Wagen" (Automatic Carriage) powered by coal gas called the AutoWagen Ein. It makes its first trip from Munchen to Nuremburg.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black as more and more settlers arive to the nation. Randolf Gebring finances the Australis portion of the rail system connecting the Saxon colony to Australis. The nation continues to make money from its jewelry exports, which are some of the best in the world. The Australian navy is upgraded. The military expands.
  • Italia works on its naval forces and continues to retire all of its old sailboats. Ironclads now compose a large portion of the Italian navy which is feared by many around the world. Urbanization continues across Italia at a rapid pace especially in the Western port cities. Venice continues to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the farther islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia become industrial centres as huge cloth weaving factories spring up to serve the growing demands of an expanding population. The University of Venice continues chemical experimentation. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia continues observing the skies and discovers more astronomical objects. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara expands at 10,000 sq km inland while Kingsland and Vellettia expands by 20,000 sq km each in Australia. Italia reorganises its colonies. Tsingapore continues to be an economic powerhouse for Italia. Work to extend the rail network continues with minor lines springing up. Passenger and freight trains break social and cultural barriers and make travel a lot more affordable. Many factories of different types continue to be set up around Italia and its dominions. Pacifico allows Maoris full rights and work to integrate them into the colony begins. The colonial capital is moved to Tauranga and in a reconfiguration of the Council and House seats, Maoris and Orissans take significant voting blocs. The Council is eventually led by a Maori-Polynesian coalition.
  • Nuovo Italia expands its economy seeking to become a leading trade nation in the Antilias as Italia is in Europe.
  • Romania works on its economy. Siam and Malacca work on their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies. In Hungary a movement which believes that all men are created equal and no man should rule over another begins to rise. They conduct a few attacks on notable Hungarian nobles that have been socially conservative.
  • The Union of the Benelux, Brittany, Normandy and the British states of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales co-operate in improving infrastructure. Scotland and Wales grow concerned at England's military buildup.
  • The Levantine Kingdom continues further strengthening of infrastructure. The Nile sees the rise of factories similar to those in Florence.
  • The Maldives continues naval buildup.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues as the government continues to convince its people that their hard work and loyalty is necessary to the survival of their people and state. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation, while Sankala grows even more as the main language. Railroad construction continues. The dredging of the islands of Bumbai continues at a faster pace. The economy continues to grow easier but the ships the United Maharajya has begun the construction of requires heavy research due to the fact much research is required. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues but Uttarshina does not expand. The United Maharajya continues to negotiate with Portugal and things seem promising. Arab Bombay grows as huge investments are made to the city to make it the financial hub for the idea - while Bumbai becomes an industrial city. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into all parts of the Maharajya. The Uda Code continues to grow in popularity and becomes used more often than not by communicators. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. The shipyards continue to build monsterous size battleships. Patagoshina is expanded 2150 km to the north. They also try to talk to the natives in Atlantia and try to convince them that the way of A'Asabism is wrong and the should follow Hinduism. However, they do not agree and the religion is declared illegal. Troops begin to be poured into the nation to try to stop violence and attack the A'Asabists if things go badly. The new territories captured by the United Maharajya help to provide extra manpower. Afghan continues to see huge efforts to integrate the nation better with the United Maharajya. Its economy is built up as more Orissans move into the nations seeking jobs and helping bring the tribes to cities to work. The Afghan border continues to be heavily manned. The army begins to be given better rifles. Many Jains once more begin to settle and the conversion of those who were converted to Islam back into following Jainism begins in earnest. Jainistan is expanded by 64,150 km. With the successful expansion of the Orissan Aprikan colony, expansion can once agan resume. Most of the expansion is conducted by the army which move northward to stop the Boer expansion. They expand by 29,150 km northward. The Boer expansion stops as they focus on fighting the Tswana revolts in many regions. The Boers have got the upper hand in this battle and the Tswana seem to be losing badly. The Orissans continue to try to get the Boers back into the state but all negotiations are stonewalled and the United Maharajya deides to try to contain them for now and hopefully unite with them sometime in the future. If diplomacy does not work - they will look to invade them and take them out. Dakshin Aprika expands its borders by 32,150 km inland, with large army numbers helping to expand the state rapudly to cut off any Boer expansions. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast is expanded by 850 km. Note: Orissa has reached another stage in the industrialisation charts, so these expansions are legitimate.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure Their colony of Jainistan expands by 64,000 km as thousands head into the nation and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. Explorers also head inland and Rajputana seeks to acquire some claimed Portuguese land through the United Maharajya. The Khmers and expand their military, economy and infrastructure, as do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands military, economy and infrastructure. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance. Butung develops its infrastructure and its military and economy are expanded. Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km northward, but many people finally realise that all the Welsh propaganda was completely misplaced and wrong and begin to live calm lives within the Kongo. Naya Mataram is abosorbed into Dakshin Aprika, to which large numbers of Matarami object but they cannot do much about the issue
  • China continues to industrialize and expand its cities as more steel factories are built in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Equalism continues to rise in Guangzhou as the economy and military both increase this year. New Manchuria and Baitudi both expand by 28,000 sq km. Mögas expands by 8000 sq km as well.

The Imperium continues its railroad projects and many people travel all around the nation for work. Consolidation of the integrated lands continue. The propaganda continues, fueling Ethiopian rage and helping its people to work harder and better for the nation. People work for their nation and for greater prosperity. The army is upgraded with new rifles produced and given to the army, while the navy continues to work with the Orissan navy and train together. In Bado, the process of establishing thriving towns and villages continues. The tribal people learn how to communicate by writing in Sankala, as the Ethiopians begin to implement it in schools and start to teach the Bado how to write with it. In Northern Antillia, colonists from Wädäb continue to co-operate with the Inuit, providing them medicine and new goods and continue to teach the Inuit a script to be able to write their language. A lot of the Inuit learn it and the the colonists encourage the people of the Inuit to inhabit permanent settlements to help gain some form of governence. Baridi sees many small outposts constructed and business opportunists head to the lands to be able to get new furs and wood. The propaganda continues to encourage different tribes to co-operate and intermarry. Effects can be seen in the cities and are continuing to grow.

Prince Maughold proposes marriage to young Eluia Juun but expresses in a letter to his father that her parents are worried about the harm to their business intersts. Pascal, who has recently been a regular guest at the palace, hears of this situation and thinks ta royal marriage to an industrialist Mayan family will greatly aid industiralization in the Haruwin. He offers to personally journey to Chichen Itza, where he asks to meet with the Juuns regarding their success and how he might be able to use his own TNOPUD corporation to benefit the Selk'nam nation. While there, he offers to sell 40% of TNOPUD Chemicals, Inc. into the Juun Family. Noting that he has heard of Maughold and Eleuia's interests, and that he thinks that such a union might allow the Juuns to expand their business interests into the Haruwin and build bridges with Selk'nam industrialists. Princesses Kyneswide and Æthelthryth greatly enjoy their time at the Royal Girls Academy - with Kyneswide taking up the flute and Æthelthryth entering ballet classes, where she excels due to her families' longstanding connection to the Royal Circus acrobatics team.

She endeavors to introduce her counsins Kyneswide and Æthelthryth to to the hieghts of Chichen Itza soiciety, but they prove to be more reserved, where Natalia is sometimes siad to be "greatest young social butterfly in Chichen Itza." Back in Yagich Rafael, there is gret demand for Mayan Talking Monkeys among aristocratic ladies, who have heard that no fashionable Mayn lady is ever without her talking monkey - many endeavors are made to convince the public that this is an urban myth, but the rumors continue to spread.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Praetor Icarus dies of old age, leaving instructions that he be succeeded as Praetor by his son Ptolemy. Long known as a moderate, Praetor Ptolemy states in his inaagural speech that, "The focus of my Praetorate will be business, the expansion of our econmy, and the good life of the Scientifican people." In priivate, he indicates a desireto halt funding of the A'asabist rebel groups in Atlantia, and exprresses skepticism of whether the Mayan embargo as a result of the Apache Revolution is, "bad for business". However, as the Apache revolutionaries were so fond of his father, he agrees to keep funding them fore now. Elements of the inner circle are furious that Ptolemy lacks the revolutionary fervor of his father. They privately continue smuggling quicklime-laced landmines to the A'asabists, and make private entreaties to the Apache to aid them in "restoring the purity of sicentific government in our land." Of Icarus' most radical aides is Athena Ņ'ẩ'ậ'ᶆ'ƈṏȵ, who despite being a woman was elevated by Icarus, who thought that "gender does not exist. Athena is a keen sicentific mind, and was placed in charge of the landmine factories, which are now alos manufacturing quicklime. She begins scretly manufacturing and storing large quicklime supplies, "for use in service to the ideals of the great Icarus".

1865

The Alliance of the North Sea ejects Scotland from the alliance due to their alliance with the French, who are held in low regard in the alliance and especially Brittany for their constant attempts to get the Bretons to join them. The Breton Duke declares that the "day we will bow to the French is the day that they take my crown by force."

I thought that Britanny was a republic. Sine dei gloriem "Ex Initio Terrae" (talk) 00:15, October 25, 2013 (UTC)
Either way they are out of your hands forever. So just drop Brittany. You can have Normandy.
Not exactly forever - and for the record I was only trying to unite Gaul under one alliance - mostly for them rather than for me, but OK. Sine dei gloriem "Ex Initio Terrae" (talk)
They've got an alliance with their fellow Celtic countries. Italy and Benelux are involved to provide foreign support. You've got a point that Normandy wouldn't join it, so you can have Normandy. And if the Bretons believe that republicanism was forced upon them by you, the French, then it would make sense that they would revive the historic Dukedom. Constitutional, of course.
I never said Normandy wouldn't join. I said that they also joined the confederacy, and I don't think Britanny was a kingdom for that if not because a player (Octivian Marius) declared it as the French national republic (i would say more like a Breton republic) and because no one crossed it out and I never said they don't have support. Sine dei gloriem "Ex Initio Terrae" (talk)
I can easily see that regime being unpopular. Octi came around and suddenly made Brittany a republic. You could say that the "French National Republic" left when he moved on. Plus there's the fact that a monarchy rooted in centuries of tradition might have more appeal than a brief republic.

The Russians finally stabilise the situation in many former breakaways through their military strength and presence. The Cherkassak and Astrakhan states cease to exist and the Russians once more have a connection to the Black and Caspian Seas. Although the people speak Russian, religious divides begin to show between the peoples in the states. In the Kazakh state, much of the north is held by Russians but there continues to be significant opposition to Russia in many areas. Large numbers of people migrate southward to set up farms and villages away from the Russian soldiers. The taking of all these areas has not been peaceful - there was significant fighting and tens of thousands were killed in all three states.

The Cree and Tsangi people form their own united tribal state after advancing to this point through the adoption of some Venetian technologies which have flowed through the tribal lands. Their nation is a few hundred km from New Italy.

The Scrunifest Destiny and the Oro Pacifico Percorso take hold in both their respective nations and begin to inspire the peoples' of the nations to expand into the wilderness and build new cities and villages. The nations of Nuovo Italia and Neu Berlin both get double the normal expansion speed and its governments begin to contemplate sending thousands of colonisers westward.

A meteorite explodes above otl Vernon County, Wisconsin. Some equate this Westard-leading "star" to the star of the Nativity which led the magi to Bethlehem. In the same way, many (especially quite fundamentalist/orthodox Christians) see the meteorite as leading them toward God's promise in the West.

The marriage between the English Princess Anna and the German Crown Prince Erdwin, officially uniting the two dynasties. This comes with German military protection from the "secret" Scottish invasion plans, which were leaked fairly quickly by a drunken Scottish soldier.

Slight Scottish stereotyping there! Callumthered (talk) 08:20, October 25, 2013 (UTC)
Soldiers get drunk all the time. I was implying a Laura Secord type scenario. You got a better way to leak those plans?
Hahaha, no, I just thought it was funny because I had this image of a really drunk whisky-drinking Scotish soldier wearing a kilt and telling everyone in the pub the secret plans. Callumthered (talk)
Military plans in real life have fallen through because of crazy stuff straight out of a bad comedy movie. There's also the fact that the Scottish player's obliviousness is getting really irritating.

1867

Novomoskovy continues to expand, filling much of the space between Neu Berlin and Kanada. The Novomoskovites also continue to expand their infrastructure and industry with the help of the resources brought by the continuing supply of immigrants. The near constant flow of Russians emigrating from Kanada allows Neu Berlin to resettle the nation with Germans to further solidify the nation's loyalty to them.
