He commissions a team of his finest men, led by his mysterious right hand man "John of the Selk'nam", to carry out a major terrorist attack in the heavily fortified Japanese Special Administrative Region of Byakuren, at a site of a major religious site which they consider to be the "hub of the grasshopper spirits". John and his men cross secretly into Northern Byakuren and plant a large amount of explosives in a major Buddhist temple in the border city of Hata no Kokoro, a pilgrimage site for locals. The temple is totally destroyed in the explosion, killing 100 people in the rubble and with A'asab's men killing 200 more as they flee. John is captured by Japanese forces. A manhunt ensues for A'asab, but the rebellions are invigorated and many men are lost. It is thought that A'asab may never be captured, and while his forces are driven back the bloodshed becomes more intense and thousands of A'asabists die in the fighting. In November, A'asab, himself, surfaces in a village controlled by his forces in Dakshin Patagoshina. He declares that the Great Bat Angel has spoken to him, and told him that the violence has killed enough grasshopper spirits to cease. He says that the Bat Angel hates violence but that his faith must be allowed to continue. He says that he will cease violence and go into exile in the A'sabist settlement in Yagich Rafael and asks to be handed over to Selk'nam authorities for transport along with his captured lieutenant John of the Selk'nam. However, he says that if either he or John is harmed, "fire will rain on the cities of Atlantia in a great day of divine wrath".

I changed Miyako to Byakuren, and also replaced the word colony with Special Administrative Region, since it's no longer called Miyako and it's an SAR, not a colony. -Kogasa'

Bolstered by this victory, continues to refine the automobile, while many see it as a waste of time and effort, Benz continues working diligently in hopes of one day improving the autowagen so much that it would one day surpass horse-drawn coaches. In the meantime, his business partner Krouss, a wealthy Australian who moved to Bavaria, continues drafting up plans to form a motor company, though the company itself may be more than a decade away ... Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England. English-German relations improve greatly. Bavaria declares full support behind the English and warns any nation, that any attack, however small, against England, will be a declaration of war on England and the whole of the mighty Germanic Empire and her Commonwealths. German and Englsih begin to merge and a new language called Saxonisch is created. This new language, a mixture of German and Saxon English, begins to gain much popularity in England. Seeing this the German Reichsrat approves a motion to begin teaching Saxonisch as a second language in German schools throughout the Empire and Commonwealths.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black as more and more settlers arrive 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. Some of Elva's lifts have made it to Australis and are currenty being installed in several government buildings. These new lifts are spurring a growth of new and taller buildings. Josef Mann designs a building that is slated to be constructed as the world's tallest building. He calls it the Broomeswalt building. Construction is restarted on the Broomeswalt building. The Imperial Australis Railway offers Italian Australis to connect the railways to form a Pan-Australis 'Railway. In Neu Munchen, a brilliant scientist by the name of Edmund Reading, an English immigrant to the Commonwealth, gains patents covering a partial vacuum, carbon filament incandescent lamp, which dubs "The Electric Torch Bulb" this new device, he hopes, would power the future of the world. With his patents secured, he plans on unveiling the new device at the first World's Fair hosted in London in 1875. He begins working feverishly to make his bulb a reality. To help test out his new electric device he asks the archetect of the Broomeswalt building to invest in the new technology. Intrigued, the architect agrees. In the winter of 1872 Reading founds the Commonwealth Elektrik Beleuchtung Unternehmen (Commonwealth Electric Lighting Company).
  • Myanmar: We decide to grant our colonies independence with protection. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar.

Most scoff at the idea, but they do gain some supporters, including, some say, the Emperor-King. The Department of Polar Affairs appoints a "Governor" of Kaiser Karl Land. The position is basically a sinecure but he has to approve any expeditions within the territory. The first serfs are emancipated in Anhalt, significantly reducing the influence of the anarchists. Tanimbarkai builds a few railways. Saxon Australis proposes the "Pan Australian Railway" be a massive ring-rail around the entire coast of the continent.

  • Le Ministère de l'Atlantide, led by the revolutionary and popular Jean-Emmanuel Nazaire Séverin, begins to adopt ideals from Neu Berlin, most notably the idea of Scrunifest Destiny. The nationalism of L'Atlantide surges, and as a result the capital city of Nouvelle Charlispolis is renamed Capitaux Quartier du Condamine, in honor of the founder of the Nouvelle Borgougogne colony and who mapped out large regions of northern Atlantia. Séverin then attempts to sooth Athamos in order to benefit both nations, and if possible unite them under a political union in a few decades. As the economy grows, talks of a rail line extending from Nouvelle Bordeux along the coast (OTL Cartagena) to C.Q. Condamine (OTL Bogota) begin to be acted upon.

Venice continues to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper and middle classes, 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 to lead in chemical experimentation with much interest in radioactivity and its properties. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections. 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.

Several men are arrested for attacking Mayan traders. Calls for Italia to allow the blockade strengthen as the local Maori population demand that the last area of their homeland be returned. Italia warns the Mayans that it is holding back the Pacificans from hostile action against North Maori and the Mayan Empire and offers the trade yet again in an attempt to see a peaceful solution. Italia offers no other terms other than the trade of Oaxaca for North Maori.
    • ​The Mayan Empire argues that if peace cannot be assured, then how can the exchange be made. Italia's hesitance to sign a peace agreement worries several Mayan leaders.
    • I promise you Scan, I will outbuild you :P. Although I already have an advantage as I have those ships launched. Plus doubling the size of them might end up giving you something like WWII size battleships. Now it is definitely on!

  • Preatorate of Pure Science: Praetoress Athena continues to rule with an iron fist, and it is said that her vision of Pure Science is even more radical than that of Icarus himself. Icarus' son Ptolemy has become something of a leader of the underground opposition, alsthouhj he is careful to protect is business interests. Relations are deepened with the Apache Praetorate, and attempts are made to spread Pure Science into the nations and colonies of Africa, especially Tojiko and Dakshin Aprika. Efforts are also made to contact the Levantine Boer state in South Africa, in hopes that Pure Science will appeal to them in their fight against colonialism. A secret team of highly trained soldiers is dispatched - bound for Yagich Rafael on an unknown mission.
  • Kingdom of Yagich Rafael: On August 24th, King Gavin Peter is dedicating a Church when a series of explonsions collapse the Church, killing the King and several of his inner circle. As soldiers converge on the site, several quicklime-filled landmines detonate, killing at least a dozen soldiers, and several men with rifles attack soldiers fleeing the scene. More soldiers arrive and kill the assailants, but one says with hs dying breath, "You have not even come close to solving the equation, monarchist scum, Pure Science has arrived to try you for your crimes against reason!" Two days later, the leader of the Pure Science assassin group, a woman who identifies herself only as "Eris" is found in a slum outside Yagich Rafael Yagich with a large number of homemade bombs and bomb-making material. She claims that there are others in the Kingdom and says "you are already beaten!" as she is put in chains. There is a great cry among the public to execute this "Eris", but the Prime Minister is firm about keeping her alive as as source of information. Meanwhile, there is debate about the royal succession among the nobility, but it is decided quickly that the only option is to give the throne to the young Princess Scholastica (as the only other royal relatives are the Selk'nam Royal Family in Atlantia). Scholastica sends word that she will return immediately on the fastest steamship to assume the throne, although it is decided that she must sail a longer route accross the Pacific via Australis, so as to avoid the large swath of the Atlantic under Pure Science control. Before leaving she notifies her fiance Duke Cotoya that she must return to her homeland and begs him to come with her, giving him only a week to decide.

  • 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 begins to become the primary language of the nation of the United Maharajya. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. The dredging of the islands of Bumbai continues at a faster pace and mud begins to be piled onto the islands to make them higher. The specific rail routes helps to transport mud and the demand to transport large number of carriages makes the development of powerful train engines crucial. The economy continues to grow smoothly and the pressure of heavy research has been lifted from the nation. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives. Many have begun to marry natives and a mixed race is forming in United Maharajyan territories too. 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. The first Akaschut (OTL Skyscraper) continues to gain more support and its consturction is approved. A man named Ratan Tata has stated his company would like to be awarded the contract to construct the building. The government approves and construction will start soon. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into all parts of the Maharajya. The Uda Code becomes the normal code to be used in Maharajyan territories. They ask to be allowed to extend the Uda Code to other nations (anyone interested ask!). The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. More battleships continue to be build in the construction docks for the nation to grow its strength. After receiving reports on the Italian constructions, the United Maharajya plan to build ships nearly 50% larger than their current ships. This will take longer and will certainly take more time to construct than the Italian battleships. A'Asabists begin to be marginalised from normal society. Afghan sees the first major cities in its lands and its economy begins to boom as a result. The Afghani work on keeping its army in shape. The mass production of the Gatling guns begins and the drawbacks found are improved on. 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. Orissan Aprika expands by 64,150 km northward. The Orissans grow tired of the Boers and plan to stop their little stunt soon. Dakshin Aprika sees more immigrants who focus on constructing new houses and farming new lands for themselves. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast is expanded by 850 km. Kolkata sees heavy repairwork and hopes its bid for the Olympics will be looked at favourably. It will help to reconstruct much of the city and bring investment. The nation is alarmed by the new developments in Atlantia and states it will refuse any attempts to buy the Rajput colony. This causes tensions to once again begin to develop and agitation against France.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Rajputs vow their colony will not be bought over and they hope to continue their control of the area. 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, and it continues to vassalise the state east of it.
  • Neu Berlin and Kanada expand military. Neu Germanica expands 16,000 sq km. Greater Transcaucasia continues to influence Kurdistan. Neu Berlin continues to develop a more modernized and more efficient military, implementing use of balloons for espionage as well as the new Gatling guns, which become a frontline weapon to be used in whatever war comes next. Cries for revolution become even more stronger in Transcaucasia, with one German (Neu Berlin German, that is) Friedrich Fort insisting that the people of Transcaucasia and Neu Berlin have grown further apart since the death of Germanica. Meanwhile, German inventer Hans Mercedes seeks to make a motorized vehicle for the streets of Neu Berlin.
    • LOL Mercedes, my guy's name is Benz. Anyway, Germany would like to approach Neu Berlin with an offer of alliance.
  • In the Imperium Africana, Sankala continues to gain prominence and begins to become the main language of the Imperium. Sankala's spread encourages its usage as a primary language by the population of the empire. The Imperium railroad projects continue with government backing and patronage, and many people travel all across the empire for work thanks to the increased demand for skilled workers. The consolidation of land into the empire is deemed a success and work on ther goals begin. 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. An Ethiopian scientist by the name of Ezana Iskinder develops the alternating current, which comes to serve as the most efficient and safest channeling of electricity in Ethiopian cities. Considered revolutionary, his work spreads quickly, with official government backing, and details of his work are sent to the Orissans so that they can benefit from the information as well. The army continues to purchase modern equipment for the planned 1880 military rearmament by the government. The Gatling guns received from the United Maharajya are produced by the imperial arsenals as part of the project. The success of the engineers is proven greatly when many flaws in the original Orissan designs are corrected, and refined blueprints sent back to the Maharajya to aid the nation modify its stock of guns to higher standards. The navy continues to work with the Orissan navy multiple naval exercises take place. Ethiopia's the construction of its own "superdock" continues, with a 35% of the dock built. The construction of "battleships" continues, with three already in operation as of the end of 1870, five more are under construction as the superdock. 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. A new generation of children from parents who are moving past social taboos are growing up and beginning to make their own choices in life. 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. However, acceptance for this begins to grow as many interacial couples prove the taboo to not be as bad as previously assumed. Reservoirs have helped make many areas into lush savannas and areas which did not have enough water can now support crops. Mali sees growth and the "Ethiopificiation" campaign continues at full speed. Hospitals and other basic services like schools are developed. Mali's vassalization of the states to the west continues into its third year. Kenya's land reform program makes great gains in encouraging residents to farm other portions of the nation, gaining a boost in agricultural development and output. Kenya continues to see a greater immigration boom into the nation as many head into the nation. Many parts of the nation begin to see urban development and railroads begin to develop in the nation. The Atlantian colony of Ethiopia continues to suffer from the problems linked to A'Asab and troops have to be sent in to help quell them. Additional troops have to be sent to help maintain order there. The idea of "fasceism" begins to expand in the Ethiopian colony, which has been passed through some of the more militant members of A'Asabism.
  • Wärqama is expanded by 18,000 km, focusing its expansion north. Wädäb expands by 16,000 km inland, trying to get to the Northern Lakes.

Kenya expands the colony of Taimaini by 10,000 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. 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. Road links are soon upgraded while a few railroads are built too.

  • 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. Kristof Shelds officially begins to sale the new typewriter. Robert Benz' internal combustion engine continues to improve. Benz, undeterred by the Imperial ban on autowagens, continues to manufacture in limited numbers the Autowagen Ein. He begins planning a way to improve manufacturing the vehicle. He also plans a new model he tentatively calls auto model A. Benz and his business associate Hans Krouss win their appeal to the Bavarian Reichstag and the law is repealed. However, a speed no faster than 7 km/hr is permitted, and coaches and horses are to be given right of way. Bolstered by this victory, continues to refine the automobile, while many see it as a waste of time and effort, Benz continues working diligently in hopes of one day improving the autowagen so much that it would one day surpass horse-drawn coaches. In the meantime, his business partner Krouss, a wealthy Australian who moved to Bavaria, continues drafting up plans to form a motor company, though the company itself may be more than a decade away ... Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England. English-German relations improve greatly. Bavaria declares full support behind the English and warns any nation, that any attack, however small, against England, will be a declaration of war on England and the whole of the mighty Germanic Empire and her Commonwealths. German and Englsih begin to merge and a new language called Saxonisch is created. This new language, a mixture of German and Saxon English, begins to gain much popularity in England. Seeing this the German Reichsrat approves a motion to begin teaching Saxonisch as a second language in German schools throughout the Empire and Commonwealths.
    • Neu Berlin peacefully declines the alliance. As much as the government wants it, there are still vast numbers of people who would not appreciate it. Also, I named my car guy Mercedes on purpose, LOL.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black as more and more settlers arrive 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. Some of Elva's lifts have made it to Australis and are currenty being installed in several government buildings. These new lifts are spurring a growth of new and taller buildings. Josef Mann designs a building that is slated to be constructed as the world's tallest building. He calls it the Broomeswalt building. Construction is restarted on the Broomeswalt building. The Imperial Australis Railway offers Italian Australis to connect the railways to form a Pan-Australis 'Railway. In Neu Munchen, a brilliant scientist by the name of Edmund Reading, an English immigrant to the Commonwealth, gains patents covering a partial vacuum, carbon filament incandescent lamp, which dubs "The Electric Torch Bulb" this new device, he hopes, would power the future of the world. With his patents secured, he plans on unveiling the new device at the first World's Fair hosted in London in 1875. He begins working feverishly to make his bulb a reality. To help test out his new electric device he asks the architect of the Broomeswalt building to invest in the new technology. Intrigued, the architect agrees. In the winter of 1872 Reading founds the Commonwealth Elektrik Beleuchtung Unternehmen (Commonwealth Electric Lighting Company). Orissa is offered construction aid in the skyscraper projects, as long as the amibitious Broomeswalt project receives Orissian engineers.
  • In the Imperium Africana, Sankala continues to gain prominence and begins to become the main language of the Imperium.

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. A new generation of children from parents who are moving past social taboos are growing up and beginning to make their own choices in life. 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. However, acceptance for this begins to grow as many interacial couples prove the taboo to not be as bad as previously assumed. Reservoirs have helped make many areas into lush savannas and areas which did not have enough water can now support crops. Mali sees growth and the "Ethiopificiation" campaign continues at full speed. Hospitals and other basic services like schools are developed. Mali's vassalization of the states to the west continues into its third year. Kenya's land reform program makes great gains in encouraging residents to farm other portions of the nation, gaining a boost in agricultural development and output. Kenya continues to see a greater immigration boom into the nation as many head into the nation. Many parts of the nation begin to see urban development and railroads begin to develop in the nation. The Atlantian colony of Ethiopia continues to suffer from the problems linked to A'Asab and troops have to be sent in to help quell them. Additional troops have to be sent to help maintain order there.

  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): With the automobile ban lifted, the wealthy begin to buy more automobiles. Benz, being a Bavarian and a compatriot, is obviously the preference, but quite a few of the "new money" industrialists and developers import Merzedes autos from Neu Berlin. (Seeing as cars were invented and produced in German-speaking countries first, could "auto" become the in-game word for "car"?) In the state landtag, the proponents of "welfare" gain some more support amongst the liberal faction. A diplomatic naval expedition is kitted out to visit the Rokkaku Shogunate to try to establish trading relations with the Japanese. The expedition leader has a letter to the Shogun and the Empress, they will leave early next year. The Emperor, while on tour of the country, notices that the industrialisation of the country has led to a decline in agriculture.

Pacifico seeks to develop modern naval ships based on Polynesian and Maori designs. Italia gives up with the increasing tension in Pacifico and allows the Orissan/Maori bill to pass. North Maori is blockaded.
    • ​The Mayan Empire is outraged by this offense, and states that Italia is a detriment to international peace, and an instigator for war. The Empire questions why it was so hard for Italia to accept peace, to allow all to prosper, instead of just taking for itself without regard to the welfare of others. Nevertheless, the Empire will seek to make peace before they seek to make war. Since peace is what the Empire craves, it will agree to a non-aggression pact in exchange for North Maori. The Empire will not even ask for Oaxaca. However, this decision will prove to all whether Italia seeks to better the world or better itself by trampling on others.

Benz famously says with a bit of humour, that you can buy the car in any colour, as long as it is black. Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England. English-German relations improve greatly. Bavaria declares full support behind the English and warns any nation, that any attack, however small, against England, will be a declaration of war on England and the whole of the mighty Germanic Empire and her Commonwealths. German and Englsih begin to merge and a new language called Saxonisch is created. This new language, a mixture of German and Saxon English, begins to gain much popularity in England. Seeing this the German Reichsrat approves a motion to begin teaching Saxonisch as a second language in German schools throughout the Empire and Commonwealths. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The New electric invention by Edmund Reading is intalled in the Imperial Palace and begins appearing all over Germany. London finishes preporations to host the first World's Fair next year. The St. Charles Street Spire (OTL Eiffel Tower) is nearing completion. With a large electric light to be installed in the coming months. Commonwealth Electric opens its England headquarters in London. In Munchen and Berlin, several other factories are opened dedicated to electric light. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. In Prague, electric lighting is erected for this year's Christmas Parade, making it the first parade to utilize the new invention.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black as more and more settlers arrive 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. Some of Elva's lifts have made it to Australis and are currenty being installed in several government buildings. These new lifts are spurring a growth of new and taller buildings. Josef Mann designs a building that is slated to be constructed as the world's tallest building. He calls it the Broomeswalt building. Construction is restarted on the Broomeswalt building. The Imperial Australis Railway offers Italian Australis to connect the railways to form a Pan-Australis 'Railway. In Neu Munchen, a brilliant scientist by the name of Edmund Reading, an English immigrant to the Commonwealth, gains patents covering a partial vacuum, carbon filament incandescent lamp, which dubs "The Electric Torch Bulb" this new device, he hopes, would power the future of the world. With his patents secured, he plans on unveiling the new device at the first World's Fair hosted in London in 1875. He begins working feverishly to make his bulb a reality. To help test out his new electric device he asks the archetect of the Broomeswalt building to invest in the new technology. Intrigued, the architect agrees. In the winter of 1872 Reading founds the Commonwealth Elektrik Beleuchtung Unternehmen (Commonwealth Electric Lighting Company). Orissa is offered construction aid in their skyscraper projects, as long as the amibitious Broomeswalt project receives Orissian engineers.
  • 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 continues to grow in the new provinces with railroads spreading across the land and the cities growing more industrialized. The Scandinavians officially annex Karelia into their nation, dividing it into five provinces. The Karelian language is preserved as a regional language in exchange for Scandinavian being taught in all the provincial schools. The Scandinavians also move to preserve German as a regional languages, with the southernmost Swedish province being designated the official German province. Most of the Germans still living in Scandinavia are encouraged to immigrate to this province with finacial incentives. The Swedes are encouraged to leave for the remaining provinces by similar incentives. The German town of Wilhelmstadt swells with people and becomes the official provincial capital.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Industrialization continues at a rapid pace. Some experiments are done to see if trains can be loaded onto large barges and ferried accross the Selk'nam Strait (OTL Strait of Magellan) - which would allow a railroad to operate from Teushen Yijich to the capital of Ona Yagich. Aid is sent to Yagich Rafael but a direct attack on the Pratorate is not mounted. Emmissaries are sent to L'Atlantide to establish cordial realtions with the "Great new power of the North". King David continues to seek royal marriages for his two daughters (work with me people, these are the last two I'm ever going to offer - seriously - this whole arranged marriage stuff is getting outdated). In De Mor Tir City, a Welsh Jewish philosopher named Jwda Gof Arian rises to prominence among the region's small Jewish community. He writes much about being "disassociated from one's ancestral land" and find an audience among both Jews and Welsh colonists who struggle with the question of whether they should think of themselves as Welsh, Selk'nam, or something else. As Jwda's writings become more popular, he decides himself to undertake a journey which will take him first to Nouvelle Judea in L'Atlantide - where he hopes to connect with an entirely Jewish society - then to Wales, where he wishes to re-connect with the Jewish community from which he came - and finally to the Holy Land where he wishes to see the ancient land of his people. He says that he will write a great book at the end of his journey, with many expecting that it will be one of the greatest works of philosophy ever produced by an Atlantian. L'Atlantide, Wales and Levantines please respond with how you want to treat this guy - he is going to become a very important philosopher and explore a key question where this timeline has diverged from OTL.
    • ​Anhaltese Diplomacy: The new Prince offers his unmarried 22 year old brother Rupprecht-Augustus (third in line to the Princely throne). No way are arranged marriages getting outdated! This is prime marrying time! Remember Christian IX of Denmark?
  • Yagich Rafael: Queen Scholastica and Prime Minister James lead the war effort against the Praetorate of Pure Science, which has ground to a stalemate. While many had underestimated the degree to which young Scholastica could contribute as anything more than a figurehead, she quickly becomes a key figure in the planning due to her education in Military History. Prince Consort Coyopa also involves himself in the war effort, using his engineering expertise to upgrade the military. The mysterious "Eris" remains in prison and cannot be identified, refusing even to speak to her guards most of the time - she only speaks twice in thre months, both times saying only, "my people are coming". On both occasions, major Pratorate attacks on the Yagich Rafaelite navy occur the next morning. The war becomes a cat and mouse naval game, with ships of bouth countries raiding outlying islands of the other and occasionally engaging in naval battle, but the great distance between the two island nations makes direct conflict difficult. There is claerly a Praetorate presence in Yagich Rafael, as occasional explosions still occur, often at church services.
    • The United Maharajya declares its support for the Royalist government and offers to help their naval efforts and push the war fully into their favour. Translation, we got big ships and we wanna test them XD
    • Yagich Rafael accepts the ships as defense but does not deisire to mount an attack on the Praetorate at this time.
  • Preatorate of Pure Science: Praetoress Athena massively fortifies the main island and chooses not to engage in direct conflict with Yagich Rafael. Instead she orders surprise ambushes on Yagich Rafaelite islands and supply vessels, ordering the navy to engage in battle only when engaged by the Yagich Rafaelites. Instead, she targets "soft" targets that are less likely to be defended. Meanwhile, spies are sent to sow discord among the Yagich Rafaelite citizenry in hopes of either fomenting revolution or creating anarchy. Posters of the Young Queen Scholastica are posted around the Praetorate with the caption, "Royalism has been reduced to its last child. This pampered debutante cannot fight us. Their end is inevitable."
  • NOTE AND QUESTION: This is obviously a theatrical war with myself with a pre-determined outcome. I don't need an algo for that, do I? Commandante Lemming (talk) 23:28, November 2, 2013 (UTC)
  • Nope.
  • 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 being built and is placed at both the Dardandelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack. The Hellenic Union continues to expand both its economy and its military and its colonies are expanded. Nea Konstantinoupoli is expanded by 48,000 sq km. Artillery becomes more widespread and is used to protect the Union.
  • Cyrenaica: expands 20,000 sq km into the desert and continues to develop paper mills and cloth factories. Cyrenaica continues to implement a more democratic society.
  • Tamania: continues expanding its military and economy and starts discussions with the Mayan Empire.
  • Athamos: continues expanding its military and economy and starts discussions with the Mayan Empire and L'Atlantide.
  • Neu Berlin and Kanada expand military. River Lakota expands 30,000 sq km and Neu Germanica expands 16,000 sq km. Mercedes develops a new way to mass produce his automobiles (assembly line) and tries it out in a few of his factories in Frakik and Junkerstadt, but puts off the idea for now. Meanwhile, Greater Transcaucasia convinces Kurdistan to join the union, but this only greatens calls for revolution against Neu Berlin. Electrical lighting is installed in Neu Berlin. Meanwhile, a man named Tomas Essen invents the abspielenphone, or replayphone in English (phonograph). It becomes very popular amongst the working class and several "Abspielenshops" open up across the nation, allowing people to listen to music for 0.05 marks. Essen begins to look into ways to improve upon this technology and utilize it for voice communication. He works with a Yugoslavian immigrant named Mikhail Tesla to work on better electrical lighting that uses less electricity. Essen and Tesla hear of the Orissan "telephone" and purchase one. Meanwhile, Tesla proposes an underground railway to the government of the City of Neu Berlin.
    • Scraw, Viva got Tesla last year and we claimed him already. And I claimed Thomas Edison. You can't just disrespect others' claims.
    • We have specific rules about NOT claiming things, which Lurk struggled very hard to make a stable system for in PMI. I don't give a flying shit if you have someone named Tesla; common Serb/Croat name of the time period. Same for Edison. Even if you claim a person, you don't get their inventions.
    • Exactly. My post is an example of that. There is a guy who invented the light bulb, and other who invented the phonograph in this timeline, instead of both being invented by the same person as in OTL.
    • Not sure who wrote that, but k. Anyway, Germans got the incandescent lamp, and I got the phonograph. Yes, Portugal created the phonautograph, but no one ever really figured out how to use it for direct replay.
  • China: China expands its military and economy. The Trans-Manchurian railroad is completed and opened. A line into Siberia is proposed. Meanwhile, urbanization continues as China expands its infrastructure and economy. The military is also expanded. Rebuilding in Dongfang continues as Baitudu and New Manchuria both expand 28,000 sq km to the north. Acquisition of Ethiopia's colony is finalized. More trade routes are opened with the African nation. Finally, Mögas expands east by 8000 sq km. Intel on the inuit tribes is gathered. In the meantime, the modern contraceptive device, i.e., the condom is invented in Beijing by a number of people concerned about the exploding population rate. Another important invention made by China this year is the darkroom, giving way to modern photography.
  • 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 begins to become the primary language of the nation of the United Maharajya. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. The dredging of the islands of Bumbai finally is completed this year and the islands become one large natural harbour for shipping and other goods. This causes much excitement in many companies as there is now a united landmass where seven islands used to be and an opportunity to build a harbour city linked to Bumbai. Work soon begins in laying down railroutes to transport mud to parts of the island as well as to connect the small fishing settlements to each other. The designing of a larger and more efficient rail engine begins as many engineering minds come together to create bigger and better train engines. The economy continues to grow smoothly. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives. Many continue to marry natives and a mixed race is forming in United Maharajyan territories too. 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. The first Akaschut (OTL Skyscraper) continues to be constructed by the Tata Construction group. Their work speed is not the fastest but they plan to build a building which is 25 stories tall! It is a dizzying height many say and a large amount of people believe that it is not possible. Tungsten steel begins to become more looked upon as a viable construction material. The navy begins to look at it as a danous armoured shell which could possibly destroy many of the best armoured ships around. This begins to come to the attention of many people. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into all parts of the Maharajya. The Uda Code becomes the normal code to be used in Maharajyan territories. They ask to be allowed to extend the Uda Code to other nations (anyone interested ask!). The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. More battleships continue to be build in the construction docks for the nation to grow its strength. The bigger battleships begin being built in the dockyard too and huge manpower is used to construct the ship. A'Asabists begin to be marginalised from normal society. Afghani cities begin to grow and a bigger rail network begins to be laid down in the state which will become connected to the rest of the rail network of the United Maharajya once it is complete. The Afghani work on keeping its army in shape. The mass production of the Gatling guns begin and the drawbacks found are improved on. 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. Orissan Aprika expands by 64,150 km northward. The Orissans grow tired of the Boers and plan to stop their little stunt soon. A lot of troops begin to be set on its border but many think it might not completely be the Boers the army is intent in going after. Dakshin Aprika sees more immigrants who focus on constructing new houses and farming new lands for themselves. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast is not expanded and instead begins to see many immigrants and colonists who begin to settle in the new farmable lands. Kolkata sees heavy repairwork and hopes its bid for the Olympics will be looked at favourably. It will help to reconstruct much of the city and bring investment. The nation continues to be alarmed at the developments going on in South America and once more anti-Frenchism begins to rise. Seeing the Italians blockade the Mayan tradepost, the United Maharajya declare support and moves in to blockade their trading post on Java - territory which is viewed as Matarami. The Mataram are quick to mobilise in case the Mayans do not come to the negotiating table. Sanjay Rajpath announces to the world he has discovered a way to transport one's voice over cable. He calls his invention the telephone and begins to publicise it and hopes it will draw more attention. Having worked extensively with the telegraph cables, Rajpath knows cables inside out and this allowed him to create the device. There is much interest in his invention and the government and the Maharani both show interest in the project. Rajpath begins to seek potential buyers. However, Rajpath goes back into his lab and begins to work frantically on a new idea which he could possibly look to sell to the military. After weeks of extensive and taxing working by him and his employees, they finally make a device which can measure angular position and will be a big help in the naval ships of the United Maharajya. He calls the invention the Dirthoscope (OTL Gyroscope). The navy is immediately interested and offers Rajpath a contract which he quickly accepts. Tata also begins to talk to the government about the construction of an underground rail network in Delhi to ease problems of train congestion and long waiting times. The government shows interest, and looks into it.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Rajputs vow their colony will not be bought over and they hope to continue their control of the area. 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, and it continues to vassalise the state east of it.
  • The Socialist-Run governement officialy passes into law the "Union Protection Act", making it illegal to terminate employment because of their involvement in labour unions. May 1st is also declared "Labour Day" and made into a national holiday. Working hours are also restricted to 50 hours a week, and it is made illegal for those under 12 to work for wages, following a death at a factory. Kalashnikov pumps out a new and improved machine gun, the TAK-74 (Tezhelaya Avto-vintovka Kalashnikova - Kalashnikov's Heavy Automatic Rifle). Due to the high success of the MVK (Gatling gun), Kalashnikov Industries is given a contract to replace them, thus, improving Russia's military. Russia kindly asks for control of Circassia back, as established by a treaty in the past I think between major powers that the North Caucasus is in Russia's sphere of influence.
  • Minsk bids to enter Olympics.
  • Ukraine bids to enter Olympics. Works on military.
  • Astarkhan, even while being an autonomous province, bids to join Olympics.
    • Mod: Astarkhan's bid to join the Olympics is denied as they are officially part of Russia. (This is as silly as Texas joining the Olympics in OTL).
    • Actually, UNTIL that, Puerto Rico and other territories such as the British Virgin Islands, the US Virgin Islands and Hong Kong all send their own teams to the Olympics and are part of the IOC, while still belonging the the US, UK, US, and China respectively. Really, I actually learned this while watching CGP Grey. Watch this VideoThe part about the Olympics starts at around 3:40.
    • Still, you don't control either Minsk or Ukraine.
    • I've been in PU with both those nations since they reaffirmed Russia's place as their monarch in the late 1850s ... the year before all those revolution things was called the year of three coronations, because the Russian ruler got crowned as ruler of Minsk, Ukraine and Suur-Suomi. TOB decided he would not play anymore, and thus, as with Dean and the UKA, I am taking it back.
  • Myanmar: We decide to grant our colonies independence with protection. 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. Most of Myanmar is now cities. Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begin to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We send our team to Olympics.

Economy is built up. Military is built up. The organization of the departments of the republic continues. The Gaul government continues seeing powerless the actions of the Carthaginian Nestorianism, yet their politics stand. It's a Carthaginian issue rather than a concern for the Gauls. The government extends the hand to Lorraine in order to establish a steady government in the region. Begins the vassalization of La Marche. It begins to accelerate the growth of Industrial region such as Paris, Dijon and Bordeaux and the creation of railways throughout the colonies and the nations itself. While this, artillery is established in the Seine River and Bordeaux to defend the nation from foreign intervention.

  • Turkomenistan: Military is built up.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The Royal Agricultural fund already starts to benefit farmers and labourers, alowing for some innovations in fertilisers and seed-sowing techniques. A small auto-taxi service starts up in Dresden-the first of its kind in the Kingdom. The 5 km/h speed limit makes them ... lag somewhat behind their horse-driven competition, however. The "Japanese Expedition" arrived in Nagasaki harbour and begins negotiating with the government. Saxon Australis expands 2000 sq km inland into Arnhem land. Saxon West Africa expands 2000 sq km along the border with Teke, and Saxon industrialists and bureaurocrats continue to gain influence within the Kingdom. Tanimbarkai works more on transport and telecommunications infrastructure. In Anhalt, four-fifths of serfs have been emancipated. However, people are still not happy! It appears that the prince forgot to take into acount any sort of assistance package to help former serfs get into a job, and he also seems to have neglected to give former serf-owners any sort of compensation! Ah, silly Prince of Anhalt. He really should take a leaf out of his cousin-the Count of Cologne-'s book. The latter has become quite popular with his subjects by introducing some small welfare packages like injury compensation and an old-age pension. As a factory-owner himself, the Count realises the importance of keeping workrs happy and heallthy.
  • Apostolic Church: Missionaries are sent to inland Africa and Prime Bishop Thomas expands the library with the addition of Apache mysticism. The Prime Bishop is extremely interested in mysticism.
  • Italia works on its naval forces the first of the huge battleships is produced having been under intensive construction efforts within the arsenals of Venice. It is named the HMIIS Destino and it stretches the limits of Italian shipbuilders. Some problems remain due to the weight and water pressure but the design is improved and the ship size decreased slightly to allow for greater manuverability and buoyancy. The HMIIS is stationed with the Royal Fleet of Singapore. Smaller sailboats based on Polynesian designs also are launched and the Italian navy marvels at their speed. Ironclads compose a large portion of the Italian navy which is feared by many around the world. Italia continues to support Pacifico's appeal to the Mayans. Aid is sent to Antioch. Automobiles are banned in Venice as the narrow streets and bridges present problems. The automobile industry grows with the Fugger family opening up their own company. 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 and middle classes, 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 to lead in chemical experimentation with much interest in radioactivity and its properties. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections. Graveyards are suspiciously going empty in these cities.

  • Apache Preatorate: The military is improved with the addition of the Heavy Rotating Defense Gun (HRDG) which inflicts tremdous casulties on invading Imperial forces. Industrialization continues and many more rail lines are built. Preator Geronimo starts to drift from mainstream Pure Science but is still highly radical. Liberators are sent to New Russia, Nuovo Italia, Neu Berlin, Northern Maya, Tamania to train and lead revolutiones in those countries, and are also sent to the Lakota to talk with Chief Sitting Bull to make Pure Science reforms. The Liberators and Revolutionary Guardsmen sent to disrupte the peace conference at Chichen Itza attempt to blow up the building it is being held at. Mods, can you say if this succeeds or not and what the consequences are?
  • Apache Empire: Imperial Industries continue to grow and sponsores massive industrialization throughout the country leading to many of the lower class to despise the government and all governments. Icemountain expands 1000 sq km and another colonial expedition is sent to Greenland to establish another colony but this time on the western part of the tip. The economy is improved and the idea for the auto personal trains by the inventor Adam Leviathen is okayed and the first tracks are laid near roads and people begin to purchase the personal train but only the upper class and upper middle class can afford them. A trolley system is put forward in the city council of Port Royal and meets with great support and construction begins almost immeditely. Prince Louis leads the 1st and 2nd fleet to Yagich Rafael to tell them that they are ready t assist at any momments notice but also say that if they don't make a move soon the 1st and 2nd fleets will attack and besiege the Preatorate of Pure Science themselves.

    • Italia thanks the Mayans for the agreement and also provides basic designs for a battleship.
  • In the Imperium Africana, Sankala continues to gain prominence and begins to become the main language of the Imperium. Sankala's spread encourages its usage as a primary language by the population of the empire. The Imperium railroad projects continue with government backing and patronage, and many people travel all across the empire for work thanks to the increased demand for skilled workers. The consolidation of land into the empire is deemed a success and work on ther goals begin. 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. Emperor Gebre-Mariam I dies at the age of 78, after 42 years of reign and prosperity. The Gatling guns received from the United Maharajya are produced by the imperial arsenals as part of the project. The success of the engineers is proven greatly when many flaws in the original Orissan designs are corrected, and refined blueprints sent back to the Maharajya to aid the nation modify its stock of guns to higher standards. The navy continues to work with the Orissan navy multiple naval exercises take place. Ethiopia's the construction of its own "superdock" continues, with a 35% of the dock built. The construction of "battleships" continues, with full production in swing with the completion of the superdock. 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. A new generation of children from parents who are moving past social taboos are growing up and beginning to make their own choices in life. 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. However, acceptance for this begins to grow as many interacial couples prove the taboo to not be as bad as previously assumed. Reservoirs have helped make many areas into lush savannas and areas which did not have enough water can now support crops. Mali sees growth and the "Ethiopificiation" campaign continues at full speed. Hospitals and other basic services like schools are developed. Mali's vassalization of the states to the west is completed, with the vassalization of Senegal. Vassalization of Gambia begins its first year. Kenya's land reform program makes great gains in encouraging residents to farm other portions of the nation, gaining a boost in agricultural development and output. Kenya continues to see a greater immigration boom into the nation as many head into the nation. Many parts of the nation begin to see urban development and railroads begin to develop in the nation. The Atlantian colony of Ethiopia continues to suffer from the problems linked to A'Asab and troops have to be sent in to help quell them. Additional troops have to be sent to help maintain order there. The idea of "fasceism" begins to expand in the Ethiopian colony, which has been passed through some of the more militant members of A'Asabism.

1875

The Persians overthrow the monarchy and arrest the Shah and his family for treason. They officially declare the formation of the Republic of Persia, and elect Shahin Khomyles as the first President of Persia. The Persian people rejoice, as they overwelmingly hated the union between the Persians and the Carthaginians. Most monarchists are forced to flee into exile. The royal family is allowed to avoid execution when they sign a document officially recognizing the end of the monarchy, and are sent into exile on pain of death.

Revolutionary ideas begin to spread amongst the Carthaginians and Transcaucasians too, as they begin to grow bitter over their subjugation by foreign forces. Many Cathaginans are resentful of having a monarch weak enough to "bow down to an elected commoner". The radical Carthaginan Nestorian Church only fans the flames of this resentment. It boils over when forces lead by the Carthaginian Nestorian Church overthrow the Carthaginian monarchy. Unlike in Persia the Carthaginian royal family is convicted and executed for treason after a drumhead trial headed by a radical Nestorian Judge. The radical Nestorian backers of the revolution officially declare the Christian Republic of Carthage. Only French-dominated Leptis remains under French control, but it's a tenuous situation.

Although I do see the "Many Cathaginans are resentful of having a monarch weak enough to "bow down to an elected commoner". But France's government and even the French find that Carthage Is equal to France, and the Carthaginian status with the French government is not vassalage, nor puppetization nor a satellite state. It's something more complex and I didn't think it was important to explain it. In the end Carthage is treated as an equal and free nation to act on its own - and the French Catholic church and the Carthaginian church have certain respect for each other. In simple words, Persia could revolt, which is obviously likely, but Carthage wouldn't. The nations are now to break away from each other, and the Carthaginian Emperor Is treated as equal to the French President. Sine dei gloriem "Ex Initio Terrae" (talk) 23:08, November 3, 2013 (UTC)
Don't worry, self-planned Transcaucasian rebellion is planned. ~ S

Nationalist ideas spread amongst the Catalan, Foixan and Montpellieran peoples within Aragon. This also stirs up the Baleric independence movement. The Catalans demand a separate state of their own while the Foixans and Montpellierans wish to become Occitan independent states.

Um, the Aragonese state already is a kind of Catalan state. Their official language is Catalan. Without counting that the Occitan-speaking areas would probably be closer to the Catalan areas than the French ones.
The Aragonese and the Catalans are two slighty different peoples. Look at it this way, you get two new vassals/union states :P
I still stand by my point about the Occitans. They would probably rather stay associated with a Catalan state than a French one.
The 1875 World's Fair takes place in London. People in their thousands flock to view the wonders of the nations.

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 is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Benz and Krouss form the Benz-Krouss Automotive Company. Benz begins work on a new line that will allow a much larger number of his autos to be produced. Benz and Krouss create a newer, faster auto called the Auto A. Benz famously says with a bit of humour, that you can buy the car in any colour, as long as it is black. Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England. English-German relations improve greatly. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools.

In Prague, electric lighting is erected for this year's Christmas Parade, making it the first parade to utilize the new invention. The World's Fair opens with a large fireworks display. A fair that lasts a full week comenced with many unique invention as booths from all over the civilised world. Orissa showed off several new inventions and other nations like Neu Berlin showcased their answer to the autowagen. The end of the festival was marked by the unveiling of the St. Charles Spire (OTL Eiffel Tower) to much fanfare. With the completion of the Spire, Germany can now claim the record for the tallest tower in the world. As a final close to the fair, the Spire's new electric lamp was lit and shined bright like a lighthouse. In other news Krouss and Benz have a falling out over the future direction of vehicles, Krouss wanting to expand into other industries and to manufacture luxury and average autos, while Benz only wants to make luxury sedans. Krouss leaves Benz and form the Bayerische Motoren Werkes (BMW). Krouss develops his own auto targeted at the middle class called the BMW Series One. Bavarian scientists reverse-enigineer their own telehpone. More posted on that next turn. England is officially declared as the state of Britannic, and as a Commonwealth of the German Empire. England votes in the parliament to shutdown the border between England and Scotland as tensions mount.
    • Orissa sets up stall at the World's Fair.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black as more and more settlers arrive 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. Some of Elva's lifts have made it to Australis and are currenty being installed in several government buildings. These new lifts are spurring a growth of new and taller buildings. Josef Mann designs a building that is slated to be constructed as the world's tallest building. He calls it the Broomeswalt building. Construction is restarted on the Broomeswalt building. The Imperial Australis Railway offers Italian Australis to connect the railways to form a Pan-Australis 'Railway. In Neu Munchen, a brilliant scientist by the name of Edmund Reading, an English immigrant to the Commonwealth, gains patents covering a partial vacuum, carbon filament incandescent lamp, which dubs "The Electric Torch Bulb" this new device, he hopes, would power the future of the world. With his patents secured, he plans on unveiling the new device at the first World's Fair hosted in London in 1875. He begins working feverishly to make his bulb a reality. To help test out his new electric device he asks the archetect of the Broomeswalt building to invest in the new technology. Intrigued, the architect agrees. In the winter of 1872 Reading founds the Commonwealth Elektrik Beleuchtung Unternehmen (Commonwealth Electric Lighting Company). Orissa is offered construction aid in their skyscraper projects, as long as the amibitious Broomeswalt project receives Orissian engineers.
    • Orissa agree to send engineers and we hope this shall improve the designs of both our buildings.

The Mercedes Motor Company begins to mass produce cars on the assembly line, making cars cheaper and more available. The demand for automobiles rises, and Mercedes' former parter, Friedrich Shoenberger, sets out to establish his own automobile company (it will soon become known as the Volkswagen Motor Vehicle Company). Meanwhile, Tesla and Essen correct the incandescent lamp so it wastes less electricity. They are approached by Mercedes to develop a more powerful, longer lasting battery for his automobiles. This becomes their major task. They also fix the telephone so that long distance calling is better and correct voice transmission quality by adding carbon. They seek to combine the abspielenograph with the telephone (answering machine is coming). However, this inadvertantly leads them to create a "quadruplex telegraph system" which allows two telegraphs to be sent simultaneously in each direction. They receive the patent for this and the system begins to be implemented across the land. Essen independently looks into making a visual recorder to work with his sound recorder, while Tesla sets out to develop a skyscraper for Neu Berlin. Also, his underground system is implemented on Manhattan Island. The City of Neu Berlin completes the street planning for Neu Berlin, with several areas left untouched for future development (parks, etc). The major parts of the city will be crisscrossed with parallel vertical and horizontal streets, with the exception of Breitweg (Broadway). Greater Transcaucasia includes greater calls for rebellion, with minor riots breaking out. The population boom continues, with a national recorded population of 27 million in Neu Berlin, three million in Kanada and Neu Prussen, and 18 in Greater Transcaucasia.

  • In the Imperium Africana, the government releases the 1875 imperial census. In it, it shows that the empire possesses a total population 220 million subjects, and an annual gross domestic product of ƒ46.2 billion florins (ƒ210 florins per capita). The census also details the fact that 80% of the Imperial population is of Ethiopian descent, mostly from the old intermarrying of Ethiopian colonists in the lands they claimed abroad. Plans to continue the ancient Ethiopification of their lands continues as a state policy. The empire continues to preach its propaganda of expansionism and divine right of the Ethiopian nation. Territories claimed by the empire are colored blacked, and children are taught to remember these lands as lost parts of the empire. Vassalization of Gambia continues into the second year, with Ethiopian merchants buying themselves into high-ranking positions, and Ethiopian men marrying into the social fabric of the Gambian people. Ethiopia leads the world as the second-largest battleship producer, just behind Orissa. Multiple fleets within the Imperial Navy boast large battleship formations, and excerise off the coast of Somalia to flaunt the power of the Imperial military. Expansion of the Imperial military forces overseas continues with plans to develop an empire-spannign network in which troops from abroad can be moved into warzones in other regions of the world quickly and efficently. Numerous coaling stations are built across the Imperial territories, with contractors doing so in Orissan territories as a gift and to aid their ally in waging wars should it need to far from home. With the help of these coaling stations, Ethiopia wage wars far from the homeland, and maintain a strong and steady supply of weapons and materiale during wartime. The Imperial Balloon Corps is established by the government to assist ground troops in scouting out strategic locations and spot enemy military movements. This coupled with the potential for these balloons to drop small bombs on enemy formations during battle helps to establish the new corps as an important part of the military of the empire.
  • Wärqama is expanded by 18,000 km, focusing its expansion north. Wädäb expands by 16,000 km inland, trying to get to the Northern Lakes.

  • 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 begins to become the primary language of the nation of the United Maharajya. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. Railroads continue being built on the new landmass and the small fishing communities begin to grow as they suddenly find themselves in the midst of a huge land construction project and see the number of ships coming into the harbour. The designing of a larger and more efficient rail engine begins as many engineering minds come together to create bigger and better train engines. The economy continues to grow smoothly. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives. Many continue to marry natives and a mixed race is forming in United Maharajyan territories too. 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. The first Akaschut (OTL Skyscraper) continues to be constructed by the Tata Construction group. They continue to construct the skyscraper and hope it will be constructed quick enough. Tungsten steel begins to become more looked upon as a viable construction material. The navy continues its research into tungsten armour plated shells which could destroy the opposition ships. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into all parts of the Maharajya. The Uda Code becomes the normal code to be used in Maharajyan territories. They ask to be allowed to extend the Uda Code to other nations (anyone interested ask!). The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. More battleships continue to be build in the construction docks for the nation to grow its strength. The bigger battleships begin being built in the dockyard too and huge manpower is used to construct the ship. Three of these supermassive ships are launched and quickly bolster the United Maharajya fleet, providing it with huge strength. A'Asabists begin to be marginalised from normal society. Afghani cities begin to grow and a bigger rail network begins to be laid down in the state which will become connected to the rest of the rail network of the United Maharajya once it is complete. The Afghani work on keeping its army in shape. The mass production of the Gatling guns continues and these weapons are distributed to the army and they have trained extensively with it. 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. Orissan Aprika expands by 64,150 km northward. The Orissans grow tired of the Boers and plan to stop their little stunt soon. A lot of troops begin to be set on its border but many think it might not completely be the Boers the army is intent in going after. Dakshin Aprika sees more immigrants who focus on constructing new houses and farming new lands for themselves. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast is not expanded and instead begins to see many immigrants and colonists who begin to settle in the new farmable lands. Kolkata sees heavy repairwork and hopes its bid for the Olympics will be looked at favourably. It will help to reconstruct much of the city and bring investment. The nation continues to be alarmed at the developments going on in South America and anti-Frenchism begins to reach peak levels and the army is mobilised. Seeing the Italians blockade the Mayan tradepost, the United Maharajya declare support and moves in to blockade their trading post on Java - territory which is viewed as Matarami. The Mataramis prepare for war. Sanjay Rajpath is given the patent for the telephone and he quickly begins to sell them in greater numbers. Seeing the developments in Neu Berlin, he adapts it to send more than two voices over cable. He builds a device which could in theory allow multiple voice to talk to each other using an operator and a switch board. He begins to test it and it works. The Dirthoscope begins to sell in huge numbers as the navy and other ships snap up at the chance to implement it to their ships. This helps ships significantly and allows the battleships a greater edge. Tata is allowed to begin the construction of an underground railway system and work begins at full speed. Sanjay Rajpath teams up with Tata and begins the construction of the first coal-powered power station, with electrical lines being laid out to the surrounding areas. The construction is predicted to be completed next year.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages.

The French Commonwealth collapses after the French government is destroyed by Carthaginian terrorists emulating the infamous Duma Bombing of ----. A civil war ensues between Monarchists, Republicans and even a weak Praetorist faction. The Christian Republic of Carthage annexes the French vassals of North Africa. The former French Atlantian colonies officially establish la Republique de Nouvelle-France (the Republic of New France). The Ministère de l'Atlantide officially reorganizes themselves as the Republique de 'lAtlantide. These nations see massive amounts of French refugees fleeing the civil war. All formerly independent nations in France officially reesstablish their independence from the chaos of France proper. The Papacy manages to secure their former territory in Provence. Lorraine succesfully gains independence from the Picard Republicans who murdered their popular King, and the heir is crowned the new King of Lorraine. All of France's vassals and colonies also declare independence. Basotho is unfortunately conquered by the Boer state, who are intent on gaining more slaves. However, the northern Antillian colony is too weak and sparsely populated, and most of it is surrendered to the Chinese in exchange for them supporting their strongly settled coast.

  • Fair enough Sine dei gloriem "Ex Initio Terrae" (talk)

However, in order to not get passed over in the Catalan succession, Pere Folc de Cardona, Joan's eldest son and Prince of Girona, refuses the Aragonese crown. Since Guillén also is unavailable, the Emperor tries to choose the new king from some noble that preferably, is important, and who resides in proper Aragonese lands, and he ends up appointing the 80-year old Artal XII de Alagón, Count of Sástago, and second cousin of the deceased king Joan VIII of Aragon.

  • 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 begins to become the primary language of the nation of the United Maharajya. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. Railroads continue being built on the new landmass and the small fishing communities begin to boom in population size as thousands begin to settle in thge new lands. The government decides it will carry out an ambitious project of planning out the construction of the new section of the city. They begin to plan out the layout of the city and many bright minds are involved. The designing of a larger and more efficient rail engine continues and much progress is made as a new rail engine begins to be tested and launched. The economy continues to grow smoothly. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives. Many continue to marry natives and a mixed race is forming in United Maharajyan territories too. 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. The first Akaschut (OTL Skyscraper) continues to be constructed by the Tata Construction group. They continue to construct the skyscraper and hope it will be constructed quick enough. Tungsten steel begins to become more looked upon as a viable construction material. The navy produces it first batch of tungsten steel armour piercing shells and naval battleships are quickly equiped with the ships. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into all parts of the Maharajya. The Uda Code becomes the normal code to be used in Maharajyan territories. They ask to be allowed to extend the Uda Code to other nations (anyone interested ask!). The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. More battleships continue to be build in the construction docks for the nation to grow its strength. The bigger battleships begin being built in the dockyard too and huge manpower is used to construct the ship. Five more of the huge battleships are launched while the smaller class of battleships is produced in greater numbers. The larger class in named the "Agni Class" while the smaller class is named the "Balvan Class". A'Asabists begin to be marginalised from normal society. Afghani cities begin to grow and a bigger rail network begins to be laid down in the state which will become connected to the rest of the rail network of the United Maharajya once it is complete. The Afghani work on keeping its army in shape. The mass production of the Gatling guns continues and these weapons are distributed to the army and they have trained extensively with it. 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. Orissan Aprika expands by 64,150 km northward. The Orissans grow tired of the Boers and plan to stop their little stunt soon. A lot of troops begin to be set on its border but many think it might not completely be the Boers the army is intent in going after. Troops numbers are at all all time high, waiting for the order. Dakshin Aprika sees more immigrants who focus on constructing new houses and farming new lands for themselves. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast is not expanded and instead begins to see many immigrants and colonists who begin to settle in the new farmable lands. Kolkata sees heavy repairwork and hopes its bid for the Olympics will be looked at favourably. It will help to reconstruct much of the city and bring investment. Seeing the Italians blockade the Mayan tradepost, the United Maharajya declare support and moves in to blockade their trading post on Java - territory which is viewed as Matarami. The Mataramis prepare for war. Sanjay Rajpath continues his work with the telephone and he begins to receive a lot of funding and his sale numbers go up. He publicises many of his inventions using his own newspaper called The Daily Times. He begins to use it in small scale and his switchboard and operator designs, although riddled with problems makes good progress. The Dirthoscope begins to sell in huge numbers as the navy and other ships snap up at the chance to implement it to their ships. This helps ships significantly and allows the battleships a greater edge. Tata continues the construction of the subway but manpower and funding are both cut for the project. The construction of more coal based power stations continue, with the first ever powerplant completed. The nation's people reach breaking point as all the anti-Frenchism comes to a head. People chant for war in Rajputana, who feel they were not allowed to expand in their colonies to the maximum. In Orissa too, people march demanding the French be removed from the scene as they have caused a lot of trouble in South Aprika and in southern Atlantia. Seeing this, war is declared on Basotho, Zululand, L'Atlantique and the French colony in southern Atlantia is invaded. The huge battleships are quick to attack and destroy many of the French naval ships and a blockade of their territories begins. They are supported to the full by their daughter nations. All allies are requested to support the United Maharajya, especially its union partner the Imperium.
    • *ahem ahem* Italia and the Mayan Empire resolved that issue already.
      • We still claim it as our land. It is our land that the Mayans never gave back after the 8 year war.
      • We didn't have to give it back. And we can claim it as our land as well.
      • Let's put it this way - Italia offered me something back, and you need a new excuse, because you can't claim you're supporting Italia.​

The military continues to make great advances, and one Georg Armschmidt Castor (see who that is? LOL) is made General of the Armies. He is a major proponent of Scrunifest Destiny and calls for faster westward expansion. Meanwhile, Essen develops the kinetoscope, the world's first motion camera. It becomes purchased by a few enterprising young artists, who begin to make short silent films. However, Essen is still displeased and seeks to make one machine out of his kinetoscope and albienspielophone. He and Tesla also develop the new auto battery for the MMC, and Mercedes purchases the design and begins to use it in the masses, while funding the future projects of these young new visionaries. Tesla, now with greater funding for his ambition, designs a "skyscraper" as it comes to be call, and puts his plan forth to the government of the City of Neu Berlin. It incorporates his new idea for a steel frame, as well as a new stronger cement that he and Essen recently developed. The Mercedes Tower begins construction in Neu Berlin. Meanwhile, with the increasing need for oil for automobiles, one Jewish John Jacobheimer begins to buy up small patches of land in Myami (Ohio) and build oil refineries above them.

  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: The Military and economy continue to grow. New Prime Minister TsaoKuoChiu Yaghan'Ctlch, a Taoist elected in 1865, is surprisingly popular in the Apostolic nation due to his jolly temperament and hard line against the Praetorate of Pure Science - where he sends ships to raid the outlying islands. Former Prime Minister Paschal excercises his option to buy back a 40% stake in TNOPUD chemicals and uses his leverage to have himself re-instated as head of his old company (pending Mayan approval). Crown Prince Maughold and Queen Eleuia have a baby girl, whom they name Princess Matthea Ichin'MayaJuun'ichin'Chongat'ichin'Tuchhulpe'ichin'Pugh'i'hnam.

Yagich Rafaelite ships succeed in reaching the main Praetorate Island of Yaich Scientifica and blockading it, with the help of the Maharajya's navy. Eris mysteriously disappears from prison without a trace, tarnishing an otherwise good year in the war.
  • >Praetorate or Pure Science: As the blockade takes hold, democratic opposition groups begin to pop up on the island of Yagich Scientifica, sabbotaging key government buildings.

  • 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 is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Benz and Krouss form the Benz-Krouss Automotive Company. Benz begins work on a new line that will allow a much larger number of his autos to be produced. Benz and Krouss create a newer, faster auto called the Auto A. Benz famously says with a bit of humour, that you can buy the car in any colour, as long as it is black. Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England. English-German relations improve greatly. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The new electric invention by Edmund Reading is installed in the Imperial Palace and begins appearing all over Germany. London finishes preparations to host the first World's Fair next year. The St. Charles Street Spire (OTL Eiffel Tower) is nearing completion with a large electric light to be installed in the coming months. Commonwealth Electric opens it England headquarters in London. In Munchen and Berlin, several other factories are opened dedicated to electric light. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. Benz and Krouss continue to grow bitter toward one another. BMW utilizes Mercede's invention of the assembly line. Initially beating Benz before he too starts to use it. New battleships using Prussian tungsten steel are constructed, one called the Kaiser Wilhelm, the other called Triumph. The new telephone becomes wildly popular among the well to do and the middle class. BMW Series One becomes the best selling auto in central and western Europe as well as in England. Saxonische continues to grow into a worthly replacement for "old German". Tensions start to mount with France as some of the violence spills into Germany. many in the Reichstag are calling for war, in part due to the violence, in part due to German Nationalism, and in part to restore order. (Secret - many German leaders are eying Carthage greedly for its size and oil). Deutshes Petrol is established in Niedersachen. It was founded to be the European answer to Standard Oil. The German navy continues to expand and has started to make its presence known throughout the World. Karl Lancaster from the University of Berlin authors "Deutschland der Große: Vom Mittelmaß zum Meister der Europa Vol. I (Germany the Great, from Mediocrity to Master of Europe). Many scholars praise the work and it has a positive effect on German pride.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black as more and more settlers arrive in 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. Some of Elva's lifts have made it to Australis and are currenty being installed in several government buildings. These new lifts are spurring a growth of new and taller buildings. Josef Mann designs a building that is slated to be constructed as the world's tallest building. He calls it the Broomeswalt building. Construction is restarted on the Broomeswalt building. The Imperial Australis Railway offers Italian Australis to connect the railways to form a Pan-Australis Railway. In Neu Munchen, a brilliant scientist by the name of Edmund Reading, an English immigrant to the Commonwealth, gains patents covering a partial vacuum, carbon filament incandescent lamp, which dubs "The Electric Torch Bulb" this new device, he hopes, would power the future of the world. With his patents secured, he plans on unveiling the new device at the first World's Fair hosted in London in 1875. He begins working feverishly to make his bulb a reality. To help test out his new electric device he asks the architect of the Broomeswalt building to invest in the new technology. Intrigued, the architect agrees. In the winter of 1872 Reading founds the Commonwealth Elektrik Beleuchtung Unternehmen (Commonwealth Electric Lighting Company). The Broomeswalt building continues to grow, now reaching 22 floors and still climbing! With the use of Prussian tungsten steel and Orissan aid, the tower becomes an impressive (if unfinished) monument to Australis and the spirit of its proud people. Schieng Laboratories is founded in Nuremburg ( OTL Siemens Labs) Heinrich Booth does a lot of study on a device he calls a radio transmitter, though in its current form, it won't be finished for a few years. In Berlin, a new type of musical arrives from America called " Broadway" and it excites crowds all over, with many clamouring for more performances from Neu Berlin.
  • Myanmar: We decide to grant our colonies independence with protection. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar.

In response to the proliferation of the Uda Code, the IDT offers assistance to nations who wish to use the Schappe Code and telegraph system. In Magdeburg, prominent historian Viktor Schultz publishes Die Familie Wettin, a comprehensive history of the Wettin dynasty and Saxony. It praises the decision to unite with Bavaria in the German empire. Senior defence ministers and personnel meet to compose a White Paper on the future of the Saxon Army for the rest of the century. Trade with Japan increases, and the rich and nouveau riche become obsessed with Japanese art and culture. Saxon engineered machines and trains and telegraphs are sent over for minimum cost, and a group of Army and Military officers are sent to help modernise the Japanese military.

  • In the Imperium Africana, propaganda continues, with more information of the "old lands" preached about to the young and the students in the Imperial universities. Ethiopia continues to build additional battleships and begins planning on construction another superdock in Lagos. The Ethiopians turn their eyes toward Arabia, and the many unclaimed lands that are there. With a longing to reunite the lands of Arabia to Ethiopia, lost nearly a century and a half ago, the Emperor declares the start of a crusade, seeking to begin their reconquest of their empire's lost lands and liberate their lost brothers, especially once it is discovered that many of their breathren have been enslaved by the Arab traders in the lands across the Red Sea. The empire rises tens of thousands of troops to fight in the war, and millions of florins are sent to aid the war effort against the Arabs. Beja, Kenya, Yorubaland, Benin, Oyo, and Somalia send troops to support the war effort, though Ethiopian efforts are focused on the capture of Mecca. Using the coaling stations established in West Africa, Imperial transports from the far west are able to make the journey into the Red Sea to reach East Africa, a perfect choice compared to the long trek through the Sahara Desert to reach Beja. The development of the electrical system in the empire continues, with a large and powerful election connection in the major cities of the empire. The railway network in the empire grows exponentionally, with the corporation known as Ethiopian Steel arising from the development of the Azmera process, which provides cheap steel needed to build the railways quickly and efficently.

He also suggests to King David II that a royal position be established over the Taoist areas, who would be subordinate to the king but would be seen as the figurehead of the Taoist community (which has always felt somewhat threatened by their minority status in the Christian nation). King David says that he will give the question some thought. TNOPUD chemicals finds increasing demand for their electice neon lights and the generators needed to power them, and Paschal sees fit to spin off a company known as PT Neon and Electric, which will take over all of the company's activities related to electricity.

The government continues to plan the first settlements to be made on the newly created island, while more mud is poured onto the landmass to make it higher than other coastal cities and ensure its safety. The designing of a larger and more efficient rail engine is finally completed and a new train engine is quickly put into service to provide for the transportation of goods to the rest of the nation. The economy continues to grow smoothly, boosted greatly by the war growth and the industrialisation. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives. Many continue to marry natives and a mixed race is forming in United Maharajyan territories too. 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. The first Akaschut (OTL Skyscraper) continues to be constructed by the Tata Construction group. They continue to construct the skyscraper and hope it will be constructed quick enough.

The construction of more coal-based power stations continue, with the Ethiopians given all the designs for the coal stations to kick start the nation's program. The war begins to decline in popularity although the huge number of men who signed up are fighting, there has been much stagnating fighting. In Atlantia, the enemy troops have managed to hold their own and a complex trench system develops over the lines following the initial gains. The huge battleships are hugely powerful and allow for the naval superiority of Allied forces. In South Aprika, the war continues at a good pace and troops make much progress.

It is rumored that the mysterious Eris has returned to the Praetorate, but that the she is unsatified with the deposition of Athena and has taken her men and left. Romors circulate that she has set sail for Orrisa's Atlantian colony of Dakshin Patagonshina, in the Selk'nam borderlands.
  • Attican Union: Prime Minster Conrad continuees to set up a democratic government and also strikes a deal to import air furnaces. Parliament concludes that a contitutional monarchy could potentially add stability and and a check on the power of the elected government, but the question of who the new king should be is highly divisive, as most of the current Pugh royals are relatively young women, and the island has been independent for some time, with some advocating a European royal. In the end, it is decided to offer the throne to a branch of the Pugh family resident in Europe. The Attican throne is offered to 32-year old Lady Urraca Garcia de Lara, the eldest daughter of Afonso of Portugal and Princess Frumentia of the Selk'nam.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. The Juun family continues the construction of the battleships. Ahaulel Autos continues producing autos under Tepeu Baleta. Ahtohil Motors continues mass-producing autos. The border with the Apache Praetorate is closed completely. Influence from the Apostolic Church continues to grow in Lakin. More branch lines are created for the railroad, connecting more large markets. As a result of the expanding rail network, the economy booms. The Juun family continues improving the national public school system and their railroad holdings. 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. 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. Haven expands 12,400 km.
  • 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 begins to become the primary language of the nation of the United Maharajya. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. Railroads continue being built on the new landmass and the small fishing communities begin to boom in population size as thousands begin to settle in the new lands. The government begins the construction of the first settlements and begins to build akaschuts in the center of the new settlements to maximise the amount of housing and land they can sell to earn a profit, while more mud is poured onto the landmass to make it higher than other coastal cities and ensure its safety. The new locomotive begins to be made in reasonable numbers and are quickly used to make travel time on the rails for good quick and fast and allows the war effort to move faster. The economy continues to grow smoothly, boosted greatly by the war growth and the industrialisation. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives. Many continue to marry natives and a mixed race is forming in United Maharajyan territories too. 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. The first Akaschut is finally completed by the Tata Group and becomes a remarkable feat of engineering. It becomes a major attraction and prices are high. Tungsten steel begins to become more looked upon as a viable construction material. The navy continues production of tungsten steel shells and are widely distributed. These shells prove their worth and completely destroy enemy armoured crusiers. Major construction projects continue as the government seeks to expand the wealth of the nation into parts of the Maharajya. The Uda Code becomes the normal code to be used in Maharajyan territories. They ask to be allowed to extend the Uda Code to other nations (anyone interested ask!). They work with Japan to implement the code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. More battleships continue to be build in the construction docks for the nation to grow its strength. The manpower needed to construct the ships helps to provide for huge employment. Two more of the Agni-class battlehsips are launched while the Balvan-class is produced in greater numbers to help make up the backbone of the new fleet. A'Asabists are marginalised from normal society. Afghani cities begin to grow and a bigger rail network begins to be laid down in the state which will become connected to the rest of the rail network of the United Maharajya once it is complete. The Afghani work on keeping its army in shape. The mass production of the Gatling guns continues and these weapons are distributed to the army and they have trained extensively with it. 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. Orissan Aprika expands by 64,150 km northward. The Orissans grow tired of the Boers and plan to stop their little stunt as soon as they hae the manpower available to do so. Dakshin Aprika sees more immigrants who focus on constructing new houses and farming new lands for themselves. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast is not expanded and many immigrants and colonists settle in the new farmable lands. Kolkata sees heavy repairwork and hopes its bid for the Olympics will be looked at favourably. It will help to reconstruct much of the city and bring investment. The Matarami continue to demand the Mayans give them back the land they have occupied on Mataram. The Mataramis prepare for war. Sanjay Rajpath continues to keep expanding his business with a lot of success on the Newspaper front too. The Daily Times begins to sell well due to the fact it has an emphasis on science-based news around the world. His switchboard and operator designs, although riddled with problems make good progress and the first of them begins to be implemented. The Dirthoscope helps battleships significantly and allows for the ships to be able to cross oceans easily and helps in stormy weather. Tata continues the construction of the subway. The construction of more coal based power stations continue, with the Ethiopians given all the designs for the coal stations to kickstart the nation's program. The war begins to decline in popularity as although the huge number of men who signed up are fighting, there has been much stagnating fighting. In Atlantia, the enemy troops continue to hold their own but multiple bloody offensives push them back. The huge battleships are hugely powerful and allow for the naval superiority of Allied forces. In South Aprika, the war continues at a good pace and troops make much progress. However, many ambushes by the enemy lead to a slight setback on the front. The faceism begins to grow in popularity in the colonies of Southern Atlantia and reaches Aprika where it quickly finds an audience. They quickly begin to gather in numbers...
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Rajputs vow for revenge against such cocky claims in Atlantia. They declare war. 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, and it continues to vassalise the state east of it. Naya Bihar is also quick to declare war while Afghan sends a few troops.
  • Neu Berlin and Kanada expand military. River Lakota expands 30,000 sq km and Neu Germanica expands 16,000 sq km.


1880

PMII1880
Russia once more begins to expand into Siberia. The number of colonists heading east is at an all time high. The "Amur Trail" as it comes to be known as begins to grow rapidly and it allows for the establishment of multiple new towns. The railroads help, too, and many use them to move to smaller and more peaceful towns. The promise of new lands for industrial peasants is too great to resist it seems.

Scotland agrees to become a part of the German Commonwealth, following the collapse of all French power and the need to ally itself with another powerful nation in case they pose an easy target for a nation.

Just wondering, doesn't this seem out of the blue? Weren't there tensions quite recently? (I mean, I'm happy about it, I just want to seem like I'm questioning it, being unbiased, etc.) Callumthered (talk) 11:15, November 9, 2013 (UTC)
I just wanted to post Scotland accepting the offer given by Andy a few turns ago.
Scotland asked to rejoin the Alliance of the North Sea. I don't mind either way... Scandinator (talk) 21:09, November 9, 2013 (UTC)

The ham-fisted attempt by L'Atlantide to absorb the Republic of Nouvelle France unsurprisingly fails, creating tensions between the two post-French nations. This and the ill-advised decision to assist the radical Nestorian dictatorship in Carthage put L'Atlantide's continued existence in doubt.

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Castille, Navarra and Granada prepare their militaries and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, railroads continue to built in Portugal. Meanwhile in Castille, Leonor Álvarez de Los Cameros gives birth to a boy, who is named Manuel. Meanwhile in Majorca, Æthelthryth Chongat-Tuch'huelpe-Pugh gives birth to a girl, who is named Mildred. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 3800 sq km, and Angola expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Brasil. Meanwhile, it expands by 29,200 sq km. Meanwhile, Afonso XV accepts the French offer, and, later on the year, is crowned as "Alphonse I, by the Grace of God and by the constitutional law of the State, King of France, Duke of Anjou, Aquitaine, Berry, Bourbon, Burgundy, Orléans, Vêndome, Count of Angoulême, Armagnac, Auxerre, Bigorre, Blois, Burgundy, Champagne, Comminges, Dreux, Évreux, Gascony, Maine, Marle, Paris, Poitiers, Rethel, Tours, Valois and Vermandois". Meanwhile, his eldest daughter Urraca receives an offer from the Attican Union to take their throne, and accepts it. Meanwhile, Barcelona offers to host the 1885 World's Fair.
  • Mutapa builds up its military. The country expands by 7000 sq km.

  • The Republic of Himekaidou continues to build up its military. Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples are built throughout the nation.
  • Myanmar: We decide to grant our colonies independence with protection. 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. Most of Myanmar is now cities. Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begin to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and is slowly adopting electricity. We ask to buy iron mines in Australis. We declare war on Carthage and send soldiers. We are still rich. We have our goal to take as much Carthage factory equipment as possible and ship it back to Myanmar. We ask to host the 1885 World's Fair in Rangoon.
  • 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 being built and is placed at both the Dardandelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack. The Hellenic Union continues to expand both its economy and its military and its colonies are expanded. Nea Konstantinoupoli is expanded by 48,000 sq km. Artillery becomes more widespread and is used to protect the Union. The Hellenic Union continues to negotiate with Kwaarafa for vassalisation.
  • Cyrenaica: expands 20,000 sq km into the desert and continues to develop paper mills and cloth factories.
  • Tamania: continues expanding its military and economy and starts discussions with the Mayan Empire.
  • Athamos: continues expanding its military and economy and starts discussions with the Mayan Empire and L'Atlantide.
  • 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 continues to grow in the new provinces with railroads spreading across the land and the cities growing more industrialized. The Scandinavians restart the processes of vassalizing Baltica. The Scandinavians begin to show the Balticans all the benefits of Scandinavian citizenship. NOTE: I won't vassalize Baltica 'til 1885/90, and I won't annex them until 1895/1900.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. The Juun family continues the construction of the battleships. Ahaulel Autos continues producing autos under Tepeu Baleta. Ahtohil Motors continues mass-producing autos. The border with the Apache Praetorate is closed completely. Influence from the Apostolic Church continues to grow in Lakin. More branch lines are created for the railroad, connecting more large markets. As a result of the expanding rail network, the economy booms. The Juun family continues improving the national public school system and their railroad holdings. 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. 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. Haven expands 12,400 km.
  • L'Atlantide continues to make a good deal of progress and is quickly becoming the primary power in northern Atlantia. The massive amount of immigration of well-to-do and working class French and Carthaginians following the Great Frankish War has led to an influx of capital and population to develop a fully industrial economy. There are still, however, a large number of inland plantations that grow coffee, tobacco, rice, sugar, and tropical fruits. The wide variety of food leads to an ever-increasing quality of life. The Or Ligne is completed this year, marking an exceptionally fast connection between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans available to all people of L'Atlantide for low costs. A reknowned innovator who was largely responsible for the success of the Atlantique Ferroviaire de l'Atlantide, Arnaud Poulin creates the Poulin Compagnie de Voiture out of Nouvelle Bordeaux. The automobile company is at first only available to the wealthy, but older roads are improved in a series of internal works projects. Finally, at the urging of Séverin, L'Atlantide forms an Olympic Committee in order to be involved in the upcoming games in 1884.
    • Proposed Expansion of L&#039;Atlantide
      Atlantéen Diplomacy:
      With the large amount of wealth brought into the nation, many Atlantéens begin to feel that they have an destiny similar to the people of Neu Berlin. To achieve this the following offers are made:
      • Athamos is invited to join L'Atlantide and share in the economic success that L'Atlantide can boast, while maintaining a good deal of autonomy and their own language and customs.
      • The Mayans are given an offer to buy their small settlement to the south of Nouvelle Borgougne, as well as a piece of the Panamanian Isthmus.
      • The Brasilians are given an offer to buy a small piece of their north-westernmost portion of their dominion. We cite the willingness of many of our people to farm the land which would otherwise go underdeveloped.
      • The Italians, who are noted for an extensive colonial empire even into the 1880s, are asked to sell the southernmost Antilles as well as transfer control of Chimu to L'Atlantide. Payment is offered.
      • The Mahajayrans are asked to cede their northernmost vassal/colonial state in Atlantia, which is land-locked and which is experiencing an overflow of French-speakers that want to become part of L'Atlantide.
      • The Allies destroyed your nation. All your land belongs to us. Period.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): Troops stationed in northern England march to Edinburgh, parading through the towns they pass on the way. Upon their arrival in Edinburgh, they are greeted by Kaiser Karl, who steamed into the Firth of Forth on the Imperial North Sea Fleet. The Kaiser officially reads out the proclamation incorporating Scotland as a Commonwealth of the German Empire, starting a week of (German-funded) celebrations in Edinburgh. The (King?) of Scotland is made a Knight Commander of the Order of Saint Mathilde, Saxony's highest honour. In other news, Industry expands in Saxony. More railways are built in Saxon West Africa and Saxon Australis, and both colonies expand their usual amounts and directions. Tanimbarkai also expands its railways. Steam engines and the like are manufactured in Khmer Koch, and many are given as gifts to the Japanese government.
  • Imperium Africana continues to promote its propaganda throughout its territories, with lost lands plastered over school walls, government offices, and public spaces, all denoting that Ethiopia shall regain its old lands and reunite with its lost children. The development of the industrial base continues, with hundreds of miles of rail laid down every month, and new telephone lines set up to connect the peoples of the land together. The super-dock at Lagos continues under construction, with about 50% of the dock completed. The crusade against the Central African kingdoms nears completion as many of the combatants convert to Ethiopian Christianity as their cities fall before the crusading forces of the Imperium. As such, many of the states join Ethiopia out of a desire to remain safe from further retribution and reap the benefits of Ethiopia's protection. Mali completes its vassalization of Gambia, and brings it into the Imperium as a vassal state on prohibition until it can pass for a dominion by the Emperor. Electric output in new Borona continues to increase, and a new set of railways is expected to aid the growth of the major cities in the territory. Oil is discovered off the coast of Nigeria, and numerous state-funded companies begin to exploit the newfound sources of black gold. This brings many jobs to the dominion, and invites tens of thousands of Ethiopians looking for work in the region to Nigeria's major cities.
  • Wärqama is expanded by 36,000 km, focusing its expansion north. Wädäb expands by 32,000 km inland, trying to get to the Northern Lakes. Development of the lands within the territory of Dähnnät continues with support from the government. Nyamwezi is expanded by 30,000 km southward. Kenya expands the colony of Taimaini by 20,000 km on the coasts. Baridi expands by 30,000 km as the company brings in its workers to work the land and help make a profit out of this experimental endeavor. Dafur expands 40,000 km westward and Kitara expands 30,000 km northward. Oyo and Yuroboland also expand by 30,000 km east and west respectively into uncivilized lands. New Oman expands 30,000 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. Road links are soon upgraded while a few railroads are built, too.
    • i can't let you post in 1879.posting for a turn over 19 hours after it has ended is too much.
    • You've got other players posting in turns 24 hours after they have passed. We do this all the time. Why the issue now? ~Viva
      • They only do this because i often don't notice and nobody else does.Consider yourself unlucky enough to not get away with this.
  • Bayern (Member of the German Empire): (Posting for Andrew) 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 is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England. English-German relations improve greatly. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. Benz and Krouss continue to grow bitter toward one another. BMW utilizes Mercede's invention of the assembly line. Initially beating Benz before he, too, starts to use it. New battleships using Prussian tungsten steel are constructed, one called the Kaiser Wilhelm, the other called Triumph. The new telephone becomes wildly popular among the well to do and the middle class. BMW Series One becomes the best selling auto in central and western Europe as well as in England. Saxonische continues to grow into a worthly replacement for "old German". The war continues against the Carthaginians. The news of Scotland's accession to the German Empire as a Commonwealth is received with much happiness in Bayern. The Emperor, while in Edinburgh, bestows the Order of the Virtuous Blood upon members of the Scottish Royal Family. Bavarian troops also arrive in Scotland, and, alongside their Saxon compatriots, help modernise the Scottish military and other infrastructure.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black as more and more settlers arrive in the nation. 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. Commonwealth Electric expands. The Broomeswalt building continues to grow, now reaching 30 floors and still climbing! With the use of Prussian tungsten steel and Orissan aid, the tower becomes an impressive (if unfinished) monument to Australis and the spirit of its proud people. Schieng Laboratories is founded in Nuremburg (OTL Siemens Labs). Heinrich Booth does a lot of study on a device he calls a radio transmitter, though in its current form, it won't be finished for a few years. In Berlin, a new type of musical arrives from Antillia called "Broadway" and it excites crowds all over, with many clamouring for more performances from Neu Berlin. Australis sends supplies to Germany.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues but its effect begins to waver as people begin to stop following propaganda. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation, while Sankala becomes the primary language of the nation of the United Maharajya. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. Railroads continue being built on the new landmass and the small fishing communities begin to boom in population size as thousands begin to settle in the new lands. The government begins the construction of the first settlements and begins to build Akashchuts in the center of the new settlements to maximise the amount of housing and land they can sell to earn a profit, while more mud is poured onto the landmass to make it higher than other coastal cities and ensure its safety.

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. The floors of the new Akaschut have been completely sold at a good price and Tata earns a hefty profit. His company continues to construct Akaschuts in Bumbai. Tungsten steel begins to become more looked upon as a viable construction material. The navy continues production of tungsten steel shells and are widely distributed. They ask to be allowed to extend the Uda Code to other nations (anyone interested ask!). They work with Japan to implement the code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code.

Tata continues the construction of the subway in Delhi and much progress is made. Many think Tata should not be constructing such a large network so soon but Tata can see the potential. The construction of more coal based power stations continue, with the Ethiopians given all the designs for the coal stations to kickstart the nation's program. The war sees its bloodiest year as charge after charge takes place and leads to the death of thousands of soldiers on the front. However, offensive after offensive drains the enemy French forces who find themselves losing ground to the hordes of attacking troops. Eventually the war becomes mobile once more due to multiple offensives and spells the end for the French. The capitals of the various nations fall and the United Maharajyan flag flies in the wind. Most of the states are put under military control as their fate is to be decided soon enough. The faceism begins to grow in popularity in the colonies of Atlantia and Aprika and has reached the United Maharajya, where the idea spreads like a sheet of paper on fire. Hundreds of thousands become interested in the ideas and it spreads throughout the nation rapidly though the numerous links. The preachers of the ideology preach dark-skinned superiority and tell the people that it is time for the superiority to show, for for that - they need to control the government...

  • The Welsh majority of De Mor Tir begin to seek their own self-government, independent from the Selk'nam. The movement is largely caused by the influential Jwda Gof Arian's return to De Mor Tir from his travels around the world. The close ties between the Selk'nam and Welsh on the island is undisputed, yet a majority of the Welsh seek to form a new nation that can truly be the successor state of the once-great Brython. Led by a charismatic speaker and advocate for the Welsh culture, Pryce Maldwyn Bowen, the Welsh people form the Plaidd Fawr Brython, or the Party of Great Brython, a political party that is dedicated to recreating a sense of unity between Welsh nations. The rightful heir to the Throne of Wales, a descendant of Arthur III named Folant Pugh-Stuart, is proclaimed by the Plaidd Fawr Brython to be the King of De Mor Tir.
  • Russia accommodates all of the world's athletes during the Moscow Olympics. It is a great opportunity for Russia to show off their technological prowess, with the Olympics being completely illuminated with electric lighting. This year sees a record high in people taking the EzhK's "First Railway", as tourists seeing the Olympics want to see the three capitals and the host city. It is also noted that the highest amount of people using the 1st International Railway is also a record high, as people from Germany go on trains to reach Moscow, as an "Olympic Express" has been set up between Karlsbad and Moscow. The Transiberian Railway is being used by many people wanting to move to Siberia using the Amur Trail. Russia works on its military. The Russian Tsar continues talks with the childless King of Baltica ... who is starting to be swayed in Russia's favor.
  • Minsk goes to the Olympics and does exceptionally well. Works on economy.
  • Ukraine goes to the Olympics and beats Russia. Works on military.
  • Kazakhstan Federation works on economy.
  • Neu Berlin and Kanada expand military. Neu Germanica expands 16,000 sq km and River Lakota expands 30,000 sq km. Tesla and Essen continue to make new inventions. Tesla creates the first radio receiver. Essen, after experimenting with his election machine, realizes that a simple device can foresee and measure earthquakes. His new seismograph is bought by some scientists and local governments, but since earthquakes in the region are rare, his invention is more insignificant than not. Dietrich Maxim experiments with the Gatling gun and makes his own new Maxim gun. The military purchases several of these and prepares to use them in the case of westward expansion. Mercedes develops a new automobile powered by internal combustion. This new engine begins to be implemented in most of his new autos. Meanwhile, Volkswagen produces the first colored car - the yellow Volkswagen Basic Mk 3. Many people buy this, as it is more attractive than the black cars that all auto owners had at the time. Using Tesla's raido receiver, another inventer, Kurt Kertz, invents the "Radio Detection and Range System" or REntuB/Rentub. It has great practical use for surveyors and the military.
  • Italia works on its naval forces building more battleships. Smaller sailboats based on Polynesian designs also are launched and the Italian navy marvels at their speed. Ironclads compose a large portion of the Italian navy which is feared by many around the world. The automobile industry grows with the Fugger automobile company utilizing the idea of an assembly line from the Venetian arsenals. 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 and middle classes, 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 to lead in chemical experimentation with much interest in radioactivity and its properties. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections. Graveyards are suspiciously going empty in these cities. The University of Southern Tyrolia continues observing the skies and discovers more astronomical objects.

1881

Earthquake

Area where loss of life and damage to infrastructure occurred.

A huge earthquake measuring over 8.5 on the Richter Scale shakes the Mayan Empire near OTL Salina Cruz. Huge amounts of damage are dealt to the Mayan cities with their early skyscrapers being unable to absorb the seismic waves; even in places like like Chichen Itza and Tenochtitlan which are about 700 km from the epicentre (damage can occur that far, search the 1934 Bihar earthquake, epicentre was in Nepal but buildings in Calcutta collapsed). Millions of people are displaced and the death toll is in the tens of thousands. Fissures and seismic waves ripped apart the railroads leaving twisted tracks in their wake. Oaxaca is hardest hit being so close to the epicentre and is damaged by a small tsunami as well.

I find no evidence of this earthquake in OTL, unless it is supposed to be the 1881 Guerrero Oaxaca earthquake, which was roughly 7.2 on the Richter scale and did not have such great effect. Also, I find it interesting that Italian Oaxaca, the m*****f***ing center of the god damn earthquake has minimal damage while cities well beyond the reach of an earthquake in a region such as this. The 'Bihar earthquake had such great resonance because it occurred extremely close to the Himalayas. Basically, this is bullshit. ~ S'
Thank you. ~Viva
Oaxaca is hardest hit. It even says so, and then there is also the fact that early taller buildings were not built to the safety standards of today where they can absorb the seismic shock. The main difference is that it is underdeveloped in comparision to the Mayans. Although to compensate it also delivers a tsunami for them.
In addition, earthquakes and other disasters don't have to follow OTL. The butterfly effect has been proven by physicists and thus, it is not a stretch of the imagination to imagine that minor movements on the crust can even influence the severity of the earthquake if moving a pen halfway across the table can manipulate Jupiter's orbit over time.
The Mayans don't have skyscrapers. Italians do. This is a dick move, anyway; Mayans have done nothing wrong recently.
Oaxaca is RED on the industrialization map. To say that they are more underdeveloped than the Mayans is a severe miscalculation. I have been planning to build skyscrapers, but have not done so yet. For fear of retaliation, I won't completely ignore this event. However, the effects will not be as big as described here. I'd like to note that this isn't the first time a random mod event has hit my country. That's the nature of the game. However, I don't really see any more random events happening elsewhere, most of which are political in nature. CourageousLife (talk) 21:57, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

A huge hurricane sweeps across the Caribbean leaving Haiti, Cuba and Florida devastated. Half of the city of Nuovo Venexia is flooded by the storm.

Several prominent German politicians begin pushing for a more centralised Germany.

What are you talking about? Germany is centralized and has been for a long time. It's set up in composition just like the US "states" and her vassals and stuff are set up like the OTL British Commonwealth. There is no more unification, it's all the same nation.
Yeah, we're just a normal Federation with two major states having the most influence. There's a reason the internal borders of the German Empire are far thinner than actual national borders. Callumthered (talk) 03:11, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

The Kingdoms of Amreli and Junaghad in former Gujarat unite after centuries of co-operation. The new Rajah asks for Orissan help to overthrow the Portuguese in the region in return for his vassalage.

Ethiopia, a melting pot of religions and cultures, arrives on the brink of civil war after a group of Ethiopian Fascists burn down the German embassy. This is considered an outrage by the Emperor and Maharajya, and he orders an investigation.

A drought strikes Patagonshina. Not only does this cause problems, it fuels the revolutionary Fascist flames in the nations of the region and begins to lead to multiple problems. Here too, civil war seems close by ...

  • Imperium Africana continues to expand its rail network and power generators, and work on a building a series of dams along the Blue Nile are underway. The vast majority of Ethiopians ignore the burning of the mosque, and the government officially paints the arson as a simple mistake caused by faulty wiring by new powerlines in the area. The mosque was two hundred years old already, and was slated for demolition due to disuse and the lack of Muslims in the region. The suspects are quietly removed from the street by police, and when their affiliation to the Ethiopian Fascist Party is revealed, they are beaten by a pro-monarchist mob for nearly burning down entire blocks of the city. Elsewhere, the Ethiopians continue to expand in size as the Ethiopification of entire lands continues. The conversion of animists throughout Central Africa continues as the crusade comes to an end. The converts realise that they are hopelessly outnumbered as a religious group, and the seek to integrate themselves into the main religious force in Africa. The development of the superdock in Lagos nears completion with 80% of the dock finished. The Imperial Navy holds a major drill off the coasts of New Borona, where the Emperor begins his visit.

Bavarian troops also arrive in Scotland, and, alongside their Saxon compatriots, help modernise the Scottish military and other infrastructure. Scotland and Britannic are merged to form the Imperial Commonwealth of Scotland and Britannia. German politicians begin the process of centralizing the nation more, re districting state lines and improving local governments. Carthage, upon the the end of the war, will be partioned into three administrative regions. Imperial Carthage, Bavarian Carthage, and Saxon Carthage. All Carthegian states will be an individual commonwealth of the Empire. Germany is enraged by the Fascist attack on the German Embassy and demands the persons responsible to be tried in a German court of law. In the Reichstag, the German Socialist Party begins to have clashes with the more extreme Equalist Party (OTL Communism). Tensions start to mount as neither side can find middle ground. Scottish rebels are deported in droves to Neu Berlin. To whomever posted about Germany and centralization: Germany is centralised, Collie just hasn't removed the internal borders.

  • Urged onward by powerful and motivational leaders like Pryce Maldwyn Bowen, Jwda Gof Arian, and "King" Folant Pugh-Stuart, the Welsh majority of De Mor Tir, under the banner of Plaidd Fawr Brython, draft a declaration of independence that is aimed at fully removing any Selk'nam overlordship of De Mor Tir. A popular vote to determine the fate of the islands is scheduled for the mid-summer, and of the 750,000 citizens, over 650,000 vote for independence. This is largely caused by a popular campaign spurned onward by the powerful speakers who toured throughout the islands for the past year. The passionate Selk'nam community voted no to the independence proposal on average. On August 10th, Pryce Maldwyn Bowen, Jwda Gof Arian, and the other prominent members of Plaidd Fawr Brython signed the Datganiad Anibyniath dissolving all ties between the Haruwin and the newly established Teyrnas o De Mor Tir. Bowen and Arian both join together in crowning Folant in the Apostolic Cathedral of St. Dafydd in Sant Padrig, the capital city. Preparations for war come to an extreme peak as nervous Tirwrians anticipate the reaction of the Haruwin.
    • ​Tirwr Diplomacy: We seek recognition from any and all nations of the world, notably powerful Old World nations and independent states in the New World. (Brasil, Neu Berlin, the Mayans, etc.)
    • The Empire of Germany and her Commonwealths nearby recognise the nation of De Mor Tir and hereby offer a trade pact.
      • ​De Mor Tir accepts the trade pact, and asks for a temporary (five-year) defensive alliance in order to allow for our nation's independence to be accepted by the Selk'nam. (Note: The war, if it comes, will not be done with an algo, but will be done with pre-set conclusion agreed upon by me and Commandeante.             Ancapflag   Hasta la vista, baby.  18:27, November 10, 2013 (UTC))
  • Neu Berlin and Kanada expand military. River Lakota expands 30,000 sq km and Neu Germanica expands 16,000 sq km. Neu Berlin refuses to recognize the independence of De Mor ir and will stand by the Selk'nam in this issue. Meanwhile, many new immigrants begin to arrive from Scotland, as well as rebels from German England and Scotland alike. This causes a population surge of five million people in this year alone, causing a great increase of workers. Manhattan Island also experiences and increase in housing, and the subway grows in use. Some lines are extended throughout the island, and engineers look into ways to cross the Sudkonigsland Bridge with subway lines. Essen and Tesla continue to make new things. Mercedes and Volkswagen continue to compete, with Mercedes keeping the upper hand.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya fails to effect a significant portion of the population who have begun to follow Faceist ideology. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation, while Sankala becomes the primary language of the nation of the United Maharajya. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. Railroads continue being built on the new landmass and the small fishing communities begin to boom in population size as thousands begin to settle in the new lands. The construction of the Akashchuts continue at full pace, while more mud is poured onto the landmass to make it higher than other coastal cities and ensure its safety. The new locomotive is made in reasonable numbers and are quickly used to make travel time on the rails for good quick and fast and allows the war effort to move faster. The economy continues to grow smoothly, with peacetime bringing with it a good more jobs and competition as well as more investment into the economy. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives. Many continue to marry natives and a mixed race is forming in United Maharajyan territories too. 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. Tata Group continues to construct Akaschuts in Bumbai. Tungsten steel begins to be approved as a construction material, too. The navy continues production of tungsten steel shells and begin the construction of the first Balvan-Class which is made from tungsten steel. It is thought the ships will become one of the most armoured ships on the planet. They ask to be allowed to extend the Uda Code to other nations (anyone interested ask!). They work with Japan to implement the code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. More battleships continue to be build in the construction docks for the nation to grow its strength. One Agni-class battlehsip is launched while a few Balvan-class are launched too. A'Asabists are marginalised from normal society. Afghani cities begin to grow and a bigger rail network begins to be laid down in the state which will become connected to the rest of the rail network of the United Maharajya once it is complete. The Afghani work on keeping its army in shape. The mass production of Gatling guns continue and are given to the army. 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. Orissan Aprika expands by 64,150 km northward. The Orissans grow tired of the Boers and plan to stop their little stunt. The army begins to amp up for war once more, even though many would like to receive a bit of resting time. Dakshin Aprika sees more immigrants who focus on constructing new houses and farming new lands for themselves. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast has many immigrants and colonists settle in the new farmable lands. Kolkata sees heavy repairwork and hopes its bid for the Olympics will be looked at favourably. The Matarami continue to demand the Mayans give them back the land they have occupied on Mataram. The Mataramis prepare for war. Sanjay Rajpath continues to keep expanding his business with a lot of success on the Newspaper front too. The Daily Times begins to sell well due to the fact it has an emphasis on science-based news around the world. His switchboard and operator designs, although riddled with problems make good progress and the first of them begin to be implemented. Tata continues the construction of the subway in Delhi and much progress is made. Many think Tata should not be constructing such a large network so soon but Tata can see the potential. The construction of more coal based power stations continue, with the Ethiopians given all the designs for the coal stations to kickstart the nation's program. The faceism has grown to its largest point yet, and the faceists have inspired people of revolution in Patagoshina due to the famine. Although the United Maharajya sends in food to help them, things go bad. Post-war, there are less jobs for the people and females have proven themselves capable to work in factories and provide for labour options too. Many are inspired by the faceist ideology, and their leader - Vikram Lakhpathi preaches this ideology loudly and to anyone willing to listen. He advocates that the "corrupt" government should be overthrown and the people should believe in supremism. Tensions with the government reach a high point, until a protest begins where the army tries to contain the protestors but accidentally kills a civilian. This erupts into fury for millions who are influenced by faceism, and the United Maharajya is engulfed by civil war.

Relations between the Nationalist Socialists and the Equalist erupt as the violence poors into the streets, each side attempting to destroy the other while courting members to their cause. Many politicians begin to fear for their safety. Equalists detonate several smaller bombs in Munchen and Dresden, though loss of life is minimal. Munchen works on a subway. Electric lights now permeate almost every major city in Germany. (Anything pertaining to the Equalists (Communists) in Germany and her commonwealths are controlled by me. I'm having a little civil discord.)
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black as more and more settlers arrive in the nation. 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. Commonwealth Electric expands. The Broomeswalt building continues to grow, now reaching 30 floors and still climbing! With the use of Prussian tungsten steel and Orissan aid, the tower becomes an impressive (if unfinished) monument to Australis and the spirit of its proud people. Schieng Laboratories is founded in Nuremburg (OTL Siemens Labs). Heinrich Booth builds the first radio device that is capable of transferring sound (OTL radio) he also perfects the radar system developed by Neu Berlin. Equalism begins to spread to Australis. Plans to build a subway line are shelved due to political unrest brought by the Equalists.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Britannia: English and Scottish rebels continue to be peacefully deported and a surge of German immigrants arrive, particularly in Scotland. In England, Saxonische, the German-English hybrid now makes up 78% of the native speakers. London bids for the Olympic Games. The Britannics form their own parliament in the city of York. Industrialisation continues with London being the epicenter. Electric lights cover the major cities. London begins construction of the "underground" a system of subterrainian railways and stations, based of the Neu Berlin idea. Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England. English-German relations improve greatly. The military is expanded.
  • Commonwealth of Carthage: Carthaginean politicians for the Carthage Assembly General. Reichskommisariat Georg Houslbring is placed as military governor until a Prime Minister is established. The nation rebuilds from the war. Infrastructure is repaired and recruitment campaigns begin. The German Office of Public relations begin to pump pro German propaganda all over Carthage, glorifying the Fatherland and the purity of the German People as well as encouraging Carthegians to accept Germanification.
  • The Emperor of Imperium Africana announces the beginning of the Grand Reformation, which is the reorganize the government and redraw the borders of the empire. The first part is the creation of several new dominions out of the older territories in the Imperium. He announces that these are Somalia, Nigeria, North and South Merina (Madagascar), Mali (Western Africa), Tchad (Central Africa), Baridi (Greenland), Angola (formerly Warqama), Tumaini (Baffen Island), New Borona (Western Australia), and Nunavut (Mainland Nunavut). The Emperor have confurred upon New Borona, Mogas, Baridi, Angola, and Tumaini the status of dominions, and established a new line of governor-generals in each of them. Elsewhere, Beja has been absorbed into Ethiopia proper, while two addition territories, Tanganyika and Buganda have been formed out of the smaller states in East Africa. Bado is integrated into Kenya, while portions of Kenya are given to Tanganyika as part of the border changes. With the new borders in place, the Emperor is pleased to announce that Ethiopia's security is no longer difficult logistics-wise, and the economy will flourish with the lessened amount of red tape. The superdock in Lagos, Nigeria is completed, and its revenue begins to pay off the amount poured into its construction. Electric towers begin to spring up across the empire, and massive amounts of electricity flood the cities of Ethiopia, bringing light to the masses. Automobile production in Ethiopia grows to a considerable extent, with millions of vehicles popping up on the newly paved streets of the nation. Massive warships continue to be churred out of the superdocks of the empire, fueled by the plentiful amount of cheap steel produced by Ethiopia. Skyscrapers arise in dozens of cities throughout the land, and the rail network in Ethiopia and its dominions reach a previously unfathomable scale. Ethiopia's vast industrial potential has been gaining it thousands of new investors into its economy, and the prosperity of the empire appears permanent. In ghettos of the city of Addis Ababa, members of the Ethiopian Faceist Party decide to deal with the Muslim minority in Somalia, and the party's leadership sends orders to its branch in Mogadishu to deal with the Muslims that have been causing trouble for the Ethiopian population there. They firebomb entire blocks full of Muslim residents, many of whom were not involved in the disputes. However, this causes nothing for trouble for the city, and soon vast mobs of Christians and Muslims begin to take to the streets to solve their problems with weapons. Hundreds are killed, and the military is called in to stop the fighting. The failure of the troops to quell the uprising leads to members of the Faceist Party to begin their move to take over the government. They preach that the Emperor has failed to protect them from the resurgent Muslim threat, and they paint vivid pictures of the Caliphate returning, and the horrible atrocities they commited during the first and only time Ethiopia was conquered. The idea of another genocide against their people and the idea that the Christian majority falling to the Muslim minority and the harm that could cause, sparks the flames of civil war, as pro-faceist forces march on the capital to meet the pro-monarchist forces of the Emperor sent to put them down.
  • Angola is expanded by 36,000 km, focusing its expansion north. Nunavut expands by 32,000 km inland, moving north along the shoreline.

  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The government and entrepreners alike invest in Scottish industry and infrastructure. The Saxon military helps fund a three million Goldmark revamp of Scotland's naval port facilities. The latest (electric) Schappe telegraphs are also introduced to the new Commonwealth. In Saxony, Equalism begins to gain a following amongst the more extreme members of the Socialist groups. The Landtag is slightly concerned with having such extremists in Saxony - traditionally a quiet calm country internally. However, so long as they remain peaceful, the government sees no reason to ban them. Electric torchlights are installed in the Dresden Palace and courthouse. Telegraph and rail lines are also improved. By now, almost every Saxon town with a notable population has at least a small train station. In Saxon Australis, word of small-scale gold deposits inland drives the establishment of some small towns near the mine sites. Saxon Australis expands 2000 sq km inland. Saxon West Africa expands its colonial military forces, and expands 2000 sq km into the sort of gap between the Cypriot colony, the Saxon colony and Teke. Tanimbarkai works on its education system, hoping to be the best in South-East Asia. In Anhalt, the Prince breathes a sigh of relief as Equalism takes hold in the principality. Although it is anti-monarchy, it is at least not anti-state as the Anarchists are. The secret police begin finding ways to play the Equalists and Anarchists against each other. (Couldn't post yesterday due to storm-related blackouts).
  • Persia: We officially begin to practice a republic government, and we continue to westernize. We install more telegraph and phone lines underground.
  • 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 being built and is placed at both the Dardandelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack. The Hellenic Union continues to expand both its economy and its military and its colonies are expanded. Nea Konstantinoupoli is expanded by 48,000 sq km. Artillery becomes more widespread and is used to protect the Union. The Hellenic Union vassalises Kwaarafa. The Hellenic Union thanks the United Maharajaya for the purchase and diverts aid to the Anatolian region of the Hellenic Union to cope with the earthquake that occurred.
  • Cyrenaica: expands 40,000 sq km into the desert and continues to develop paper mills and cloth factories, and artillery to protect Benghazi from any attacks.
  • Myanmar: We decide to grant our colonies independence with protection. 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. Most of Myanmar is now cities. Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begins to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and is slowly adopting electricity. We ask to buy iron mines in Australis. We continue to construct areas for the World's Fair to be held. Because of the possibility of the World's Fair not being held in Rangoon, all our construction will be able to have a second use after the World's Fair. We begin using light bulbs and Rangoon Electric begins. We ask all nations to support Rangoon's bid for the World's Fair.
  • China: China expands its military and economy. The Trans-Manchurian railroad is completed and opened. A line into Siberia is proposed. Meanwhile, urbanization continues as China expands its infrastructure and economy. The military is also expanded. Rebuilding in Dongfang continues as Baitudu and New Manchuria both expand 28,000 sq km to the north. More trade routes are opened with the African nation. Finally, Mögas expands east by 8000 sq km. Equalism continues to rise in China.
    • You agreed to join the EZhK/Eurasian Railroad commission correct? Then this should not even be a question. Of course you can build a rail line to Siberia! I thought you joining the ERC would mean that you agree to the construction of International Railways between all member nations, anyway, INTERNATIONAL RAIL FOR EVERYONE! I should make a page for that, for the ERC, an international commission in charge of overseeing the operation and construction of railways between member nations! A truly Eurasian Railway Network, a truly Pan-Continental Rail network will result, huzzah!
  • After the Tragic death of the King of Baltica, his brothers being dead, his mistrust of his nephews to not kill over the throne, and the influence of the Russian Tsar, the King of Baltica, in his will, passes the throne to the Tsar of Russia. The Baltican rubber-stamp parliament passes legislation joining Baltica to the Russian realm. To prevent the anger of the Royal Family, Tsar Ivan officially announces, that like the Romanovs, --INSERT ROYAL BALTICAN HOUSE HERE-- would be the "Perpetual Viceroys" of the Baltican Kingdom. The Tsar quickly democratizes the nation, much to the chagrin of the Viceroys, but to the pleasure of the people, gaining their support. Economy is improved upon through railroad trade.
  • Belorussia works on military aspects of their existence. The border dispute between them and Baltica is resolved quickly now that Baltica is a part of the Russian realm in the end with Belarus gaining Baltican territory that was in the 1858 revolutions map in pink
  • Ukraine works on its military by benefiting with the greatly extended railway network and the Kalashnikov plant.
  • Kazakhstan khanate does very well with the economy because of the oil that was struck in Kazakhstan, and the EZhK railway networks that have connected the Kazakh capital with the rest of the Russian Tsar's other territories.
  • Finally having more freedom, the Estonians declare independence as an Independent State of Eesti. The reason behind this is that Estonian Culture is FINNIC as opposed the the BALTIC culture of the rest of Baltica, and the only reason that they do not have independence is because of the State of Baltica's more autocratic old government and rubber-stamp parliament, but after transition to a Russian-style parliament, the conquered state of Eesti once again got its freedom. It is quickly allowed secession and is admitted into the Russian realm after Tsar Ivan is declared their King. Works on its economy.
  • Baltica works on strengthening its military and rejects all attempts of vassalization by Sweden after many years of Russian influence. New elections are called as the electoral and parliamentary system is slightly changed to be more like the Russian System. (Yank, if you had read my posts, you would have noticed that Russia had started to influence Baltica in 1876, as opposed to your 1880).
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya fails to effect a significant portion of the population who follow Faceist ideology, but its effect on a signicant majority is back, thankfully. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation, while Sankala has finally become the main language of the United Maharajya. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. Railroads continue being built on the new landmass and the small fishing communities begin to boom in population size as thousands begin to settle in the new lands. The construction of the Akashchuts continue at full pace, while more mud is poured onto the landmass to make it higher than other coastal cities and ensure its safety. The new locomotive is made in reasonable numbers and are quickly used to make travel time on the rails for good quick and fast and allows the war effort to move faster. The economy crashes as the nation enters a civil war which has begun to make the last civil war two centuries ago light a light battle. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives and run away from the civil war. Many continue to marry natives and a mixed race is forming in United Maharajyan territories too. 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. Tata Group continues to construct Akaschuts in Bumbai. Tungsten steel begins to be approved as a construction material, too. The navy continues production of tungsten steel shells and begin the construction of the first Balvan-Class which is made from tungsten steel. It is thought the ships will become one of the most armoured ships on the planet. They ask to be allowed to extend the Uda Code to other nations (anyone interested ask!). They work with Japan to implement the code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. More battleships continue to be build in the construction docks for the monarchist side to fight back against the faceists. One Agni-class battleship is launched while a few Balvan-class is launched, too. A'Asabists are marginalised from normal society. Afghani cities begin to grow and a bigger rail network begins to be laid down in the state which will become connected to the rest of the rail network of the United Maharajya once it is complete. The Afghani work on keeping its army in shape. The mass production of Gatling guns continue and are given to the army fighting for the crown. 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. Orissan Aprika expands by 64,150 km northward due to the fact that the chaos means many are immigrating to the colonies now. The Orissans grow tired of the Boers and plan to stop their little stunt. The army has become divided between the faceists and the monarchists. The faceists manage to convince most soldiers in South Aprika to side with them, and they invade the Boer state. Dakshin Aprika sees more immigrants who focus on constructing new houses and farming new lands for themselves as well as running away from the civil war. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast has many immigrants and colonists settle in the new farmable lands. The Matarami continue to demand the Mayans give them back the land they have occupied on Mataram. The Mataramis prepare for war. Sanjay Rajpath continues to keep expanding his business with a lot of success on the Newspaper front too. The Daily Times begins to sell well due to the fact it has an emphasis on science-based news around the world. His switchboard and operator designs, although riddled with problems makes good progress and the first of them begin to be implemented. Tata continues the construction of the subway in Delhi and much progress is made. The construction of more coal based power stations continue. Vikram Lakhpathi leads the faceists, who declare the creation of the nation of the Faceist Union. His armies have begun to fight government troops in Patagoshina, Uttarshina, Naya Punjab and the United Maharajya itself. The Emperor/Maharajya declares he would lead from the front, but his loyalties are divided between Ethiopia and Orissa and he tries to manage the civil war in both nations. The faceists take control of the colony of Patagoshina completely, and have enough control in Naya Punjab that they can begin to transport the French to labour camps where they will be forced to work and make weapons for the faceists until they die of starvation and mistreatment. This brutality has not reached the United Maharajya yet, where many states have secceed from the nation itself and civil war rages on. The south is mainly faceist controlled and from here the war is fought in the homeland territories.
    • The Mayan Empire inquires as to what the Una Code is.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Rajputs see faceists all over their nation, but they are rapidly detained and transported to Aprika where they will not be able to make Rajputana descend into chaos, after seeing what has happened in Orissa. The Khmers 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, and Kongo finally vassalises the state east of it.
  • Tyrnas o De Mor Tir, in its first full year of independence, begins to feel its legitimacy being unchallenged, and the military largely stands down in order to not have a militarized nation. The technology of the military only increases however. De Mor Tir, having been the most technologically advanced region of the Haruwin, continues to advance past its mother nation. The Welsh nationalism does not stop, and Bowen and Arian continue to work together to promote liberal values of liberty. King Folant, who is largely a figure-head, does work on the construction of a Royal Compound in Sant Padrig (the capital city is called Sant Padrig - not De Mor Tir City) which begins with a new palace, based off of Avalon. Meanwhile, the Apostolic Church of De Mor Tir seeks recognition as an independent body, and those who idolize the glory days of Fawr Brython start to recreate the Order of St. David, but its popularity still has to grow. Telegraph lines are spread between the two islands, and a train system is set up.
  • Neu Berlin and Kanada expand military. Scottish and English immigrants continue to arrive in masses at Alvin Island. Neu Berlin continues to support the Selk'nam on the issue of De Mor Tir. Aid is given to the legitimate government of Orissa, but not that of Ethiopia. River Lakota expands 30,000 sq km and Neu Germanica expands 16,000 sq km. Tesla and Essen continue to make inventions. The government begins to look into breaking the monopoly of Standard Oil. Also, Carnegie leaves Standard Oil to look into the steel business. Volkswagen and Mercedes continue to battle each other. The Vanderbilt and Maron families come to dominate rail in the nation, with both of them agreeing that a transcontinental railway is urgent for the betterment of the nation and its economy. With the rails finally reaching the farthest extents of Vinland and River Lakota, they begin to build some rails into uninhabited land, and Neu Berlin asks Kasodani for permission to build rail lines throughout its territory. Many upper middle class people move to western Lange Islen now that the Sudkonigsland Bridge connects it to Manhattan. The subway system expands. The official population of Neu Berlin and its associated lands is now 35 million, much thanks to immigrants.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Last year's earthquake rattled the confidence of many influential politicians in the nation. Congress passes laws about basic building codes, rebuilding destroyed buildings with better standards as well as shoring up buildings that survived the earthquake, studying their architecture to figure out why they did not collapse. A new type of clothing becomes available, work pants with metal rivets to keep the fabric from wearing (OTL Blue Jeans). The Juun family continues the construction of the battleships. Ahaulel Autos continues producing autos under Tepeu Baleta. Ahtohil Motors continues mass-producing autos. A popular auto becomes the tractor, which reduces time and increases efficiency on farms. The border with the Apache Praetorate is closed completely. Influence from the Apostolic Church continues to grow in Lakin. More branch lines are created for the railroad, connecting more large markets. As a result of the expanding rail network, the economy booms. The Juun family continues improving the national public school system and their railroad holdings. 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. 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. Haven expands 12,400 km.

1883

In Mataram, an eruption happens in the Krakatoa island volcano, being comprised of four explosions, each one being accompanied by giant waves, that in some places reach 30 meters tall.A large area of the Sunda Strait and the coast of Sumatra is affected by the pyroclastic flows of the eruption. Two-thirds of the Krakatoa Island itself are destroyed after the eruption. Over 70,000 people die, and the eruption injects an unusually large amount of sulfur dioxide gas high into the stratosphere.

If this is the OTL number, then you might want to double or maybe triple it. Those guys are pretty industrially populated, and will screw my nation. LOL. ~Imp

  • 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. The German Navy is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". The German Navy embraces newer battleship technologies, leaving the small and unwieldy ironclads in the past. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. Benz and Krouss continue to grow bitter toward one another. BMW utilizes Mercede's invention of the assembly line. Initially beating Benz before he, too, starts to use it.

With the use of Prussian tungsten steel and Orissan aid, the tower becomes an impressive (if unfinished) monument to Australis and the spirit of its proud people. Schieng Laboratories is founded in Nuremburg (OTL Siemens Labs). Heinrich Booth builds the first radio device that is capable of transferring sound (OTL radio) he also perfects the radar system developed by Neu Berlin. Equalism begins to spread to Australis.

  • Russia sees the rise of Equalists in the Duma, gaining 15 seats by the end of the year due to members of the Socialist party switching sides. The Equalists are much more radical and call for more reform than the Socialists do. Proposals of public healthcare, and improvedment to the public education are proposed. The Public education Improvement act passes, now forcing children to remain in school until the age of 12, esentially making it illegal to child labour them. In any case, public health care is a frequent subject of debate, as well as instituting a graduated income tax. In any case, economy is developed. A scientist by the name of Dimitri Mednikov, in a dream, thinks up a way of organizing elements by their atomic number, thus, inventing the periodic table. After much study, he also discovers Electromagnetism, and other science stuff, making electric generaiton much easier, and possible. AC generator invented?

  • The Russian realm as a whole decides to, in a joint summit of Heads of Government (Prime Ministers), to lay out a series of "Time Zones" to standardize the passage of time - especially in the railways, since they have to be on time. The world is divided into 24 "Hour Zones" that are longitudes, with Zero (0) being the Novgorod Meridian, and time zones based on this agreed-upon division (due to not wanting to split administrative divisions into two or more time zones), being +x or -x hours based on how many divisions they are away from Novgorod. Russia, under these divisions, holds 11 time zones. With unanimous agreement, all Russian realm members decide to propose that the entire Eurasian Railroad Commission use this standardized time system to improve international commerce, communication and make easier the management of international rail lines.

However, the Orissans begin to use the first of their own cars, made by Tata Motors, who have been working hard to incorporate foreign designs into their own research and have made bigger and faster cars. Eventually, the armies reach the camps - where they are horrified to learn the fate of the French colonists. Quickly liberating the camps - food and medicine is given as well as much care.

    • Note from Lemming: Rex - sorry I left the cocaine stuff out of the history but just so you know it's called "Cocide" not cocaine in timeline. It's controlled by your major chemical company Brythonic Elixirs, and was already being exported in the form of Coca Brythonica (a brand of cocawine - but assuming you are introducing the powdered stuff.) Also, you need to address the name change of the capital from De Mor Tir City to Saint Padrig OR state that St. Padrig is separate, that and King Folant's ancestry needs to be addressed (he's plausible but likely was born German)

In the northern areas of Atlantia, the war has gone much better for the Maharajya who have pushed back the faceists even further and all they have control of is one city. The cars made by Tata Motors help the war effort significantly and help transport troops to more remote locations quicker. Due to the civil war, construction of railroads have boomed and helped supply both sides. However, seeing the stalemate in the war, both sides plan an offensive which will hopefully swing the battle into their favour. Both sides will have to capture one crucial city, however.
    • The Mayan Empire would like to know what the Uda Code is and how it is beneficial.
      • Saxony informs the Mayans that the Uda code is a system of telegraph communications (like Morse code OTL), which is far inferior to Saxony's system, the Schappe (a visual system ). Ours is better, because manual back-up lines stop blackouts from having any effect on telegraphic communications.
    • Imp, are you still (or have you already) inventing/invented trams? Callumthered (talk) 11:05, November 15, 2013 (UTC)
    • Still inventing them. Our system might be inferior, but our coverage is unparalleled across the world. Our lines can connect a significant amout of nations. We are also looking into a possible Trans-Pacific cable lines which could work much better with Mayan interest. And contrary to popular belief, we too also have back ups across our line. We can - on top of that, offer you the chance to participate in our highly experimental telephone line which would allow vocies to travel large distances. Interested?
    • Saxony rebuts the claim that the Uda code has "coverage ... unparalled across the world", stating that all copper telegraph wires are the same, and all that differentiates the two codes (in technical terms) is the pulse of electricity flowing through the wires. As well as that, the Schappe system is more efficient, as our codebooks mean that not all words have to be spelled out letter-by-letter. I thought telephones were fairly common (at least in a local context) by now?
    • The Mayan Empire will examine both systems and decide which it will choose at a later date. Until then, it is interested at the possibility of this new invention, the 'telephone', as a co-operative venture. It also requests the Maharajya's audience on another joint venture (talk page, chat, I don't care)
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Rajputs see faceists all over their nation, but they are rapidly detained and transported to Aprika where they will not be able to make Rajputana descend into chaos, after seeing what has happened in Orissa. The Khmers 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, and Kongo begins to vassalise the states close to it.
  • China: China expands its military and economy. The Trans-Manchurian railroad is completed and opened. A line into Siberia is proposed. Meanwhile, urbanization continues as China expands its infrastructure and economy. The military is also expanded. Baitudu and New Manchuria both expand 28,000 sq km to the west and east respectively. Finally, Mögas expands east by 8000 sq km. Equalism continues to rise in China. Troops move into Chongqing to quell the rebellions. Occupying the city for a month, the townspeople quickly grow angry. Kai Meng is allegedly seen being captured by Chinese forces and executed on the spot. Meng becomes a martyr for the Equalists, who grow in number by the day. Shanghai becomes a hotspot for Equalists, who, until the alleged death of Meng, have been relatively peaceful. With Meng's death, however, the Equalists are more persistent and more aggressive. August sees the bombing and sinking of the Hóngbǎoshí, a massive Chinese treasure ship. Some time after, a silent film, Chénchuán de hóngbǎoshí (Wreck of the Hóngbǎoshí), is released. The eight-second-long movie depicts imagery of the ship being consumed by fire. Backlash from the Chinese government is expected as the Equalists continue to gain influence.
    • I agreed to the train line the first time it was proposed!
  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine. Electricity begins replacing steam engines. 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. Most of Myanmar is now cities. Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begins to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and are slowly adopting electricity. We ask to buy iron mines in Australis. We continue to construct areas for the World's Fair to be held. Because of the possibility of the World's Fair not being held in Rangoon, all our construction will be able to have a second use after the World's Fair. An electricity web is build in Rangoon and the grammephone, radio and cars are introduced. We begin the construction of the world's first telephone, electricity and radio line in Rangoon. We ask all nations to support Rangoon's bid for the World's Fair for 1895. With our entering of the Eurasian Railroad Committee, Rangoon Railways begins to go to Vladishoktov to build a railway from Harbin and Vladishoktov. We finish the part to Vladivostok and we start to Yakutsk.
    • The colony of Saxon Australis agrees to the offer to buy iron mines, but states the Myanmarese will have to pay the normal taxes.
  • The civil war in Imperium Africana draws to a close as the faceists are picked off as they retreat further and further back to Somalia, dying off in droves as the vengeful Imperial military forces wipe out entire divisions of the rebel forces. Ships siezed by the rebels are used to move the survivors out of the Imperial core regions, and into the Imperial territories of Atlantia, where the Emperor's violent purges against them are the least prolific. The empire celebrates the victory over the faceists as they are forced out of Africa, and tracked down in their homes in Ethiopia proper. The Emperor is celebrated as a hero for his role in defying the faceist forces, and an entire week is deticated in his honor in a nation already steeped in rites and rituals. The empire continues to move forward, with the construction of a third superdock at OTL Perth. The superdock is to serve as the homeport of the Imperial Navy in the Pacific, and plans to extend Imperial power there are planned by the Emperor as he considers his next move following the civil war. The Ethiopian battleship fleet, already the second-largest in the world, bar Orissa, is to grow even bigger, as Ethiopian shipwrights draw up designs for the IMS Dreadnought, which will be the largest warship on the planet. If successful, numerous designs are being built, and many of them sent to Orissa as a gift from his Imperial Majesty of Ethiopia.

  • The Teyrnas o De Mor Tir, continues on its path to economic development. The city of Sant Padrig continues to experience improvement, especially seen in the Royal Compound. Arian's unpopularity with the extremists of the Order of St. David begins to create a small power struggle between Bowen and Arian. Folant tends to side with Bowen, and the formation of a new political party, the Plaidd Seciwlar. Contentions between the Plaidd Fawr Brython (PFB) and new Plaidd Seciwlar (PS) are limited to political rhetoric for now. The bridge to unite the two islands is under construction. Coca Brythonica continues to be an important industrial industry, and other medicinal studies begin to take place under the leadership of Brythonic Elixirs.
    • ​De Mor Tir seeks to enter a series of alliances with Wales and other post-Brython states, including England, Scotland, Brittany, Normandy, and Ireland. (Scand!)
    • As for Lemming, Sant Padrig is the real name for the capital city that you have been calling De Mor Tir City. That is the historical name, from even before I played as Wales. Thanks for the understanding.
    • From Lemming: Sorry just trying to keep the timeline constant so that everything matches. Proposed soloution that eliminate the need for editing: St. Padrig is the historical capital - "De Mor Tir City" is the name of an urban area somewhere else on the island that somehow got really big and at one point surpassed St. Padrig as a commercial center at some point, so the Selk'nam put government offices there during their rule. The nationalists move the capital back to St. Padrig and that city is now growing like gangbusters. That solution, which assumes they are two cities, straightens the timeline, gives you a second major city, and makes it such that both of our posts are all good. Also am I safe in the assumption that Folant is German born?
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The Conservative Opposition vows to repeal the Worker's Compensation Act if they are elected to Government next year, making them popular amongst most rich people, but deeply unpopular amongst commoners. The Socialists reform the education system, making it a goal to have at least seven-eigths of the population literate by 1900. This move gains multipartisan support, and the Conservatives say that if they are elected next year, they will adopt the goal as their own. In the colonies: Electricity and railways continue to be rolled out in the Saxon Administrative Region of Carthage.

Plans to develop the "Statue of German Unity" one, located in Munchen, one in Neu Berlin (Statue of Liberty) work begins on the two statues.
    • 78% is nowhere near possible right now. We are looking at two generations for this to work - around 60 years.
  • Commonwealth of Carthage: Cartheginean politicians for the Carthage Assembly General. Reichskommisariat Georg Houslbring is placed as military governor until a Prime Minister is established.

  • Propaganda within the Maharajya fails to effect a significant portion of the population who follow Faceist ideology, but its effect on a signiciant majority is back. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation, with both sides of the civil war trying to work on their factories to outproduce the other side. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. Railroads continue being built on the new landmass and the small fishing communities begin to boom in population size as thousands begin to settle in the new lands. The construction of the Akashchuts continue at full pace, while more mud is poured on to the landmass to make it higher than other coastal cities and ensure its safety. The new locomotive is made in reasonable numbers and are quickly used for the war effort to transport materials and troops around the nation to have the upper hand in the war. The economy begins to recover and industrial productions help. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives away from the civil war. Many continue to marry natives and a mixed race is forming in United Maharajyan territories too. 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. Tata Group continues to construct Akaschuts in Bumbai.

The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. More battleships continue to be build in the construction docks for the monarchist side to fight back against the faceists. No Agni-class battlehsip is launched while only two Balvan-class are launched. The Faceist side nearly completed their own Agni-Class, but its location was found and a large Maharajyan taskforce attacked the docks in the middle of the night. Although the trailing ships of the FU realist what has happened, it was too late and when they got into the battle, they were destroyed. This left the Faceists with just two Balvan Class ships. The Maharajya suffers heavy casualties, too and four Balvan Class ships are lost. Asabists are marginalised from normal society. Afghani cities continue growth and a bigger rail network is laid down in the state. The Afghani work on keeping its army in shape. The mass production of Gatling guns continue and are given to the army fighting for the crown. Many Jains head to Jainistan and it is expanded by 64,150 km, with the colony becoming a refuge for Jains - who for no apparent reason the Faceists hate. Orissan Aprika expands by 64,150 km east due to the fact that the chaos means many are immigrating to the colonies now. The faceist invasion of the Boer state continues and through brutal means, they begin to force the Boers into retreats. Free slaves quickly side with the Faceists - guys, seriously, should I do an algorithm for this? Dakshin Aprika sees more immigrants. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast has many immigrants and colonists settle in the new farmable lands. The Matarami stop their demands once a deal is worked out between them, the United Maharajya and the Mayans. Sanjay Rajpath continues to keep expanding his business with a lot of success on the Newspaper front, too. The Daily Times begins to sell well due to the fact it has an emphasis on science-based news around the world. His switchboard and operator designs, although riddled with problems makes good progress and the first of them begin to be implemented. Sanjay Rajpath continues to work extensively - making better versions of radar in his labs and testing them. He believes this could help the Orissans significantly. Tata continues the construction of the subway in Delhi and it is finally completed. The subway will be launched next year. However, Tata is not done yet. He begins the construction of an aboe ground version of the subway which will run alongside roads but at a much slower pace. He calls this "Trams". The construction of more coal based power stations continue. Vikram Lakhpathi leads the faceists, and the Faceist Union fight many successful battles against United troops. Patagoshina becomes headquarters for the Atlantean front of the war. The Maharajya backed Uttarshina troops launch a major offensive against the faceists. The fighting is bloody but the faceist troops are completely wiped out and the "nation" comes under the control of Monarchist/socialist troops once more. Both sides move in to capture the city of Raipur which is crucial to both sides. In the bloodiest battle the sub-continent has ever faced - "two armies went in, and one nation came out" as the Maharaja would state. The United Maharajyan and the Faceist Union fought for over a month to capture the city, but the Faceist Union troops were lured into a trap and are defeated soundly - masterminded by the Maharaja himself. The Faceist Union troops are sent into full retreat as they try to stablise their troops and fronts.
    • About the algorithm, only if you want it.
    • Not really - I would be fine without using the algo. LOL.
      • But that was precisely what i was saying. You only need to use the algorithm for a civil war if you want to use it.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Rajputs see faceists all over their nation, but they are rapidly detained and transported to Aprika where they will not be able to make Rajputana descend into chaos, after seeing what has happened in Orissa. The Khmers 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, and Kongo begins to vassalise the states close to it.
  • All states expand military. Normal expansion rates. Mercedes and Volkswagen continue to duke it out in a massive corporate war. Standard Oil continues to grow bigger and bigger and co-operates with Carnegie Steel to help each corporation to dominate their respective fields. The Reichstag begins to look into breaking up monopolies. Voting requirements are changed to all citizens of the age of 21 or above. This is historically groundbreaking, as women are allowed to vote. Tesla and Essen are still making stuff. Two young brothers from Nye Norge begin to look into heavier than air flight. Population continues to skyrocket. Immigrants also arrive from Ethiopia and Orissa, with many people fleeing the war or faceists or both. The Maxim gun continues to be assigned to artilley units. The navy perfects the idea of a submariner, a seafaring vehicle that can submerge itself underwater and attack enemy ships from below. Many submariners are now under construction.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): Elections are held, returning the Catholic-Democrat & Socialist coalition with 60% of seats between them. This is mainly due to the popular support of the coalition's social welfare policies amongst the common folk. Equalism gets fewer supporters as the less-extreme Socialists seem to be doing a pretty good job of improving the lot of the common man. The Dresden city council hears of the newly-invented "trams" and begins planning a tram system for Dresden. The military expands, and pickelhaube and raupenhelm are introduced as the standard headgear of the army.Colonies expand usual amounts. (Sorry if this post is too late).
  • Imperium Africana rebuilds after the civil war, stronger than ever and with more faith in the monarchy that ever before. The development of the nation continues, especially as the superdock in New Borona comes closer to completion. The IMS Dreadnought is halfway done, and the recruitment of crewmen and officers for the ship begins. Orissan engineers are invited to join in the construction of the ship, so as to aid them in learning how build dreadnoughts themselves. The construction of the ship takes place in the deepest part of the superdock of Lagos, ensuring that no spies or saboteurs may come close to it. Any unauthorized personnel caught within the confines of the dock are disappeared, and locked away until the ship is too be revealed. Propaganda continues with a much more energetic vigor that before, with much acceptance of government policy and ideals throughout the empire. Ethiopification continues, with a good 80% of the population claiming to be of Ethiopian blood. The destruction of the empire's remaining mosques begins as the Muslim population as a result of the conflict has shruken to a pitful few thousand people. As the other religions in the empire begin to disappear, Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity is widely widely accepted as the state religion. Nigeria completes its vassalization of Kwarawafa, and it is integrated into the Imperium as a territorial state of the Dominion of Nigeria.
    • Sorry, but the Hellenic Union vassalized Kwararafa in 1881.
  • Angola is expanded by 36,000 km, focusing its expansion north. Nunavut expands by 32,000 km inland, moving north along the shoreline.

We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begins to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and are slowly adopting electricity. We continue to construct areas for the World's Fair to be held. Because of the possibility of the World's Fair not being held in Rangoon, all our construction will be able to have a second use after the World's Fair. An electricity web is build in Rangoon and the grammephone, radio and cars are introduced. We begin the construction of the world's first telephone, electricity and radio line in Rangoon. We ask all nations to support Rangoon's bid for the World's Fair for 1895. With our entering of the Eurasian Railroad Committee, Rangoon Railways begins to go to Russia. We finish the part from Valadishoktov to Magadan. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia.

We ask Luxembourg if they want to become our protectorate and we can make Luxembourg's city plans.
  • Luxembourg: We agree to become Myanmar's protectorate and ask them to sell us their old Steam Engines, which they are replacing right now. We also ask to join the Olympic Committee and the Anti-Piracy League. We start building up a bigger army, now consisted of 13 young men. All of them hold pistols.
    • Luxembourg is under my control. You did not ask and just deleted my signature and started playing.
    • Damn you Scan, you took my big moment! I had prepared all this to say! Callumthered (talk)
      • Whoah! This is not happening. The rules do not specifically refer to "protectorates" per se, however I believe the rules regarding vassals do apply in this case. Vassals have to be contiguous to your nation, and as Myanmar has no territory in Europe, let alone contiguous territory, this does not fit the rules. Even if the vassalage rules do not apply, is Luxembourg not a member state of Benelux (which is a puppet of Italia)? In which case, would Italia not be gravely insulted by Myanmar declaring a protectorate over its land? Then of course, there's the implausibility of Luxembourg accepting. Callumthered (talk) 10:19, November 17, 2013 (UTC)
        • There is also the point of Luxembourg not being able to even communicate with Myanmar, being landlocked, and all.
        • Whoa! I am so sorry! I didn't mean it! Sorry for the implausibility, too! (Scand, can I play as Luxembourg? I really want to play ...) Coat of Arms of Switzerland RCCHANG Lord of Switzerland COLONIAL WORLD REBOOTCoat of Arms of Switzerland
        • Not as a member of the Benelux... But Brittany or Wales or Ireland. Scandinator (talk)
  • Italia works on its naval forces building more battleships. Smaller sailboats based on Polynesian designs also are launched and the Italian navy marvels at their speed. Ironclads compose a large portion of the Italian navy which is feared by many around the world. The automobile industry grows with the Fugger automobile company utilizing the idea of an assembly line from the Venetian arsenals. 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 and middle classes, 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 to lead in chemical experimentation with much interest in radioactivity and its properties. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections. Graveyards are suspiciously going empty in these cities. The University of Southern Tyrolia continues observing the skies and discovers more astronomical objects.

  • 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.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The Dresden and Leipzig city councils begin work on their "tram" networks. They believe that they will be extremely profitable and also allow for faster movement inside the ever-expanding cities. Of course the Coachdrivers Union is not pleased by what they call "iron monstrosities", but the councils overrule their complaints. Electric lights are now commonplace in upper and middle class homes. Hundreds of thousands of Saxons benefit from the social welfare schemes. The pickelaube and raupenhelm have been universally adpted by the army, with the infantry and artillery wearing the former, and the cavalry and signals the latter. The Balloon Corps opts for the raupenhelm, jokingly saying that the Pickelhaube could potentially pop the balloons! Colonies expand usual amounts.

His switchboard and operator designs, although riddled with problems makes good progress and the first of them begin to be implemented. Sanjay Rajpath continues to work extensively - making better versions of radar in his labs and testing them. The subway is launched with great prompt and it allows for many to shorten their journey times to offices and factories significantly. The construction of the trams begin in Kolkata and its construction is much quicker due to the fact less resources need to be spent.

    The fellow on the right is a Saxon infantryman, and the portly-looking fellow on the left is a balloonist.

    have become national symbols of Saxon and German identity, embraced by the public. A Saxon delegation, including representatives of the Dresden and Leipzig city councils, attemds the grand opening of the Kolkuta tramway, and take notes on how a system should be laid out in their respective cities.Having telegraphed their observations back to Saxony (using the Schappe telegraph system: if anyone wants it, just ask), and construction continues on the tram lines. In Saxon Australis, the government deciedes to invest the extra money gained from the Myanmarese mining taxes in public works. New oublic libraries, museums and art galleries are established. Scholarships for young artists, musicians and writers are also set up, and money is given to fund expeditions into the continent's harsh centre. SA expands 2000 sq km inland. Saxon West Africa formally vassalises Teke with the signing of the "Treaty of Amical Protection" by the Governor of SWA and His Serene Highness the King of Teke. SWA expands 2000 sq km inland, keeping south of the line already demarcated with the Hellennes.
  • Bayern (Member of the German Empire): (Posting for Andrew) 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. The German Navy is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". The German Navy embraces newer battleship technologies, leaving the small and unwieldy ironclads in the past. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. Benz and Krouss continue to grow bitter toward one another. BMW utilizes Mercede's invention of the assembly line. Initially beating Benz before he, too, starts to use it. BMW becomes the favoured auto company in Europe. Benz begins to market to the high class and the military. New battleships using Prussian tungsten steel are constructed, one called the Kaiser Wilhelm, the other called Triumph. The new telephone becomes wildly popular among the well to do and the middle class. BMW Series One becomes the best selling auto in central and western Europe as well as in England. Saxonische continues to grow into a worthly replacement for "old German".. Scottish rebels are deported in droves to Neu Berlin. . Munchen works on a subway. Electric lights now permeate almost every major city in Germany. German-Neu Berlin relations continue to improve. The Reichstag passes a motion that addresses many of the Equalist's concerns. Offers of Alliance as well as a "special relationship" are offered. German hardliners start to protest the widespread use of Saxonische, calling it a bastard language and urges it to be outlawed. thus far they are a minority and have been ignored. in the latest Imperial Reichstag elections the Equalists manage to gain 15% of the seats, up from a mere 5% last election. the Socialists and the National democrats each hold 20%. A coalition government is formed. An ambitious workers pension bill as well as a more modernised system banning child labour is passed.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black as more and more settlers arrive in the nation. 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. Commonwealth Electric expands. The Broomeswalt building continues to grow, now reaching 30 floors and still climbing! With the use of Prussian tungsten steel and Orissan aid, the tower becomes an impressive (if unfinished) monument to Australis and the spirit of its proud people. Schieng Laboratories is founded in Nuremburg (OTL Siemens Labs). Heinrich Booth builds the first radio device that is capable of transferring sound (OTL radio) he also perfects the radar system developed by Neu Berlin. Equalism begins to spread to Australis. Plans to build a subway line are shelved due to political unrest brought by the Equalists. Electric lights are now a dominant form of lighting.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Britannia: English and Scottish rebels continue to be peacefully deported and a surge of German immigrants arrive, particularly in Scotland. In England, Saxonische, the German-English hybrid now makes up 20% of the native speakers. London bids for the Olympic Games. The Britannics form their own parliament in the city of York. Industrialisation continues with London being the epicenter. Electric lights cover the major cities. London begins construction of the "underground" a system of subterrainian railways and stations, based of the Neu Berlin idea. Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England. English-German relations improve greatly. The military is expanded. electricity and autos become commonplace. Inventor Charles Gramme invents the first Grammephone, an adaptation of an earlier Neu Berlinian design, this time, instead of using a cylinder, a flat shellac disc is used and a tone arm glides over the grooves of the disc, creating sound, which is then amplified by the horn. Plans to develop the "Statue of German Unity" one, located in Munchen, one in Neu Berlin (Statue of Liberty) work begins on the two statues.
  • Commonwealth of Carthage: Cartheginean politicians for the Carthage Assembly General. Reichskommisariat Georg Houslbring is placed as military governor until a Prime Minister is established. The nation rebuilds from the war. Infrastructure is repaired and recruiting campaigns begin. The German Office of Public Relations begins to pump pro-German propaganda all over Carthage, glorifying the Fatherland and the purity of the German people as well as encouraging Carthegians to accept Germanification. German technology becomes commonplace as many larger cities get electric lighting and autos. (The Commonwealth includes Saxon and Bavarian adminstrative regions. Callum, feel free to add to the post). (I will). Work continues on the railways and telegraph in the Saxon Administrative Region. Local militia units are raised to defend the region from desert nomad rebels in the Sahara to the south. Missionaries of the Holy Wettin Missionary Order continue to proseletyse and provide schooling and medical care.
    UER

    The UER state names and borders.


  • Italia, unveils its brand new air force which is composed of many Zeppelins and hot air balloons. However, the ceremony is hijacked by an anarchist Equalist alliance which crash the zeppelin in which the immediate royal family is riding in into the royal palace annihliating the entire royal family with the exception of a few governors whom are quickly assassinated. Meanwhile, bombs destroy the parliament building and all this is followed by attacks across Italia, Romania, Yugoslavia and Hungary. The Equalists seize power after by capturing and holding key infrastructure centres and declare the Unified Equalist Republics. The Equalist operation to seize power also extends to the colonies and other states with secret Equalist cells repeating the near bloodless revolution across the Italian dominions. Within a month, all of the Italian dominions are under Equalist control with the exception of a few small rebellions. The UER government then declares all the Italian dominions are to be reorganized as republics within the UER framework. Equalist cells within the Hellenic Union attempt their own uprising to join the UER. The UER attempts to reassure world governments that it is not a hostile state and seeks to reaffirm the alliances with Germany, Russia, Orissa and Myanmar.
    • The new socialist government of the United Maharajya agree to re-affairm their alliance although they mourn the loss of the Italian Royal Family.
    • the new socialist led Germna government seek to affirm the previous allaince (secret- Equalist part members in Germany seek support to make their cause known, and to ultimately bring Germany to pure socialism, not the capitalist excuse of its current leaders)
  • The Alliance of the North Sea collapses with the Equalists seizing the Union of Benelux. Brittany, Wales and Ireland all turn to Germany hoping for protection and/or a unified British Isles and Briton lands.
    • Bavaria on behalf of the mighty German Empire accepts and sends troops to stablise the region. The German Navy begins to patrol the Irish Sea for any signs of Equalist attacks. Germany extends the offer for Wales, Ireland and Brittany to join the Commonwealth of Britannica.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues to once more increase in influence and the successes of the Maharajya in the battles help restore faith in the government. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation, with both sides of the civil war trying to work on their factories to outproduce the other side. Railroad construction continues and many small towns spring up at intersections. Railroads continue being built on the new landmass and the small fishing communities begin to boom in population size as thousands begin to settle in the new lands. The construction of the Akashchuts continue at full pace, while more mud is poured on to the landmass to make it higher than other coastal cities and ensure its safety. The new locomotive is made in reasonable numbers and are quickly used for the war effort to transport materials and troops around the nation to have the upper hand in the war. The economy begins to recover and industrial productions help. The SOC's promotion of Atlantia continues and thousands head to Atlantia to set up their new lives away from the civil war. Many continue to marry natives. 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. Tata Group continues to construct Akaschuts in Bumbai. The navy continues production of tungsten steel shells and the second Balvan-Class ship made from tungsten steel continues construction. They work with Japan to implement the Uda Code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. More battleships continue to be build in the construction docks for the monarchist side to fight back against the faceists. No Agni-class battlehsip is launched while only two Balvan-class are launched. Asabists are marginalised from normal society. Afghani cities continue growth and a bigger rail network is laid down in the state. The Afghani work on keeping its army in shape. The mass production of Gatling guns continue and are given to the army fighting for the crown. Many Jains head to Jainistan and it is expanded by 64,150 km, with the colony becoming a refuge for Jains - who for no apparent reason the Faceists hate. Orissan Aprika expands by 64,150 km east due to the fact that the chaos means many are immigrating to the colonies now. The Boers continue to enslave the Boers and use them for the creation of defenses around the colony to try to fight off the invasion they know is coming. Dakshin Aprika sees more immigrants. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. The Gold Coast has many immigrants and colonists settle in the new farmable lands. Sanjay Rajpath continues to keep expanding his business with a lot of success on the Newspaper front, too. The Daily Times begins to sell well due to the fact it has an emphasis on science-based news around the world. His switchboard and operator designs, although riddled with problems makes good progress and the first of them begin to be implemented. Sanjay Rajpath continues to work extensively - making better versions of radar in his labs and testing them. The subway continues to gain popularity and it begins to bring in good money. The construction of the trams continues in Kolkata and many more sections are completed and opened in cities. Although the rich own cars made by Tata Motors, for the general public trams begin to become the preferred option. The construction of more coal based power stations continue and the electrilisation of all major cities continues at a rapid pace. Vikram Lakhpathi knows the Faceist Union will fall in the Hindustani front and thus focuses in gaining ships to transport his followers to Patagoshina. The Dominion of Uttarshina announces they too will send an Olympic team. Their search for a new capital continues. The United Maharajya manage to defeat the remaining forces of the FU in many battles and Vikram Lakhpathi leads his remaining armies to Patagoshina and flees the United Maharajya. The war on the Hindustani sub-continent has come to an end. Following this, an offensive in Orissan Apkria is launched to defeat remainder forces of Faceists and bring peace to their colony. This offensive is largely successful and the Faceists are pushed to breaking point. Hundreds of thousands flee but many surrender and the civil war draws to a close in the United Maharajya. The news is received with widespread jubilation and people gather on the streets to greet their returning heroes.
    UM post Civil War (PMII)

    New borders of Orissan Territories

    • Wait, are the Boers enslaving themselves?
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Rajputs win against the faceists too and victory is declared. The Khmers expand their military, economy and infrastructure, as do Mataram and Brunei. However, Mataram and Brunei continue negotiations of uniting into one nation - with Sulwasi and Butung joining in. All nations agree to a Union and announce the creation of Dakshin Maharajya. They establish the laws and ruling of the nation and immediately announce they will send an Olympic team. The Union is greeted with much joy and the people feel it is right they are united under one nation. 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. Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km northward, and Kongo continues to vassalise the states close to it.
  • China reaches a state of total civil war as Equalist revolutionaries rise up in Chongqing. The Chinese military begins to move in, though rebellions in Yichang and Wuhan catch the military by surprise. As cities along the Yangtze River rebel in unison, they rally behind Huang Mengtu, a former professor at Chongqing University. As the rebellions continue along the Yangtze, cities and towns south of the Yangtze begin to fall under the sway of the Equalist doctrine, which beckons to the everyman. The colonies remain under Gang Chinese control, however, though liberalism and other forms of freedom are more numerous in the Antillan colonies. They've distanced themselves from their mother country to allow for growth to continue. Baitudu and New Manchuria both expand 28,000 sq km to the west and east respectively. Mögas expands east by 8000 sq km.
    • The UER offers to send aid to the Equalists in China.
    • The Equalists gladly accept the UER aid.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Industrialization continues to deepen under the rule of Prime Minister Kusadrus Gichi'ca'a'ijin'ijich - a Teushen industrialist elected in 1885. King David II dies after a long reign and is succeeded by his son Maughold, with Eleuia Juun becoming queen consort. Concern is expressed about the spread of Equalist regimes and the Haruwin begins cracking down on groups espousing both Equalist and Pure Science ideologies, which are known to collaborate.
  • Yagich Rafael: Industrialization deepens as Queen Scholastica is increasingly seen as the dominant figure in politics over her low profile Prime Minister, John Quintillian Smada'Ichsin'John'Amadachin'Yacighin. Prime Minister John Quintillian is unpopular and it is rumored he will not win a second term in 1890. Equalist literature is banned and relations with the former Italia are dissolved.
  • Attican Union: Queen Urraca and long-time Prime Minister Conrad have successfully built a democracy and deepened industrialization, tight relations are maintained with both the Selk'nam Haruwin and Yagich Rafael. Equalism fails to gain adherents as many Atticans are still fearful of a return to dictatorship.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Praetor Cicero is enthused by the rise of the UER and thinks the time may have come for Pure Science to break its isolation. He sends representatives seeking to build strong ties between the Pure Science and Equalist ideologies and hopes that the UER will provide him with a military training and equipment (UER PLEASE RESPOND). However, some in the government try to use the rise of the UER to pressure Cicero to return to the more aggressive and ideological methods employed by former Praetoress Athena. Also, rumors circulate that the mysterious operative known as Eris, thought lost, may have returned to the Pratorate. Near the end of the year, an explosion rocks a government building, but no trace of a perpetrator is found - fueling speculation that Eris has returned.
    • The UER sends equipment and a few military advisors.
  • Praetorate of Eternal Matter: Praetor Euclide seizes on the opportunity to reach out to the new UER as an ally(UER PLEASE RESPOND).
    • ​The UER is doubtful of the potential of the Praetorate's ability to help it but it accepts the alliance anyway.
  • Neu Berlin begins to fear the Equalist threats everywhere. We begin to send aid to Nuovo Italian anti-Equalists, promising them freedom and whatnot. Many people from the UER everywhere and millions arrive in droves. They also bring important features of their culture with them. One such cultural thing is the Mafia, which, running from the Equalists, has set shop in Neu Berlin. To brace for an Equalist attack, all states expand military. We send aid to anyone fighting faceists or Equalists. Kanada also continues to expand influence on Novomoskovsk, while Antilia joins Neu Berlin because it is scared of Equalists. River Lakota expand 30,000 sq km and Neu Germanica by 16,000 sq km. Stuff. The Weich brothers continue to look into heavier than air flight.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. The government proceeds with caution in dealing with the new Equalist (socialist, communist?) governemnts. Immigration is limited. The Empire makes plans for the construction of a canal to link the two oceans. The Royal Science Academy continue studying the 'steam turbine', as well as experimenting with crude oil. Electricity becomes a popular amenity in some more wealthy provinces. A new type of clothing becomes available, work pants with metal rivets to keep the fabric from wearing (OTL Blue Jeans). The Juun family continues the construction of the battleships. Ahaulel Autos continues producing autos under Tepeu Baleta. Ahaulel begins producing a new type of auto, an 'autobike'. Ahtohil Motors continues mass-producing autos. A popular auto becomes the tractor, which reduces time and increases efficiency on farms. The border with the Apache Praetorate is closed completely. Influence from the Apostolic Church continues to grow in Lakin. More branch lines are created for the railroad, connecting more large markets. As a result of the expanding rail network, the economy booms. The Juun family continues improving the national public school system and their railroad holdings. Glass, steel and concrete become common building materials in the northern provinces. Trade throughout 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. 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. Haven expands 12,400 km.

1890

PMII1890
The threat of the UER sends Normandy and Sundgau seeking German protection. Lorraine is targetted by Equalists and in the resulting chaos fragments into two portions, much of Lorraine goes to France with a small border zone joining Luxembourg.

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Majorca, Barcelona, Castille, Navarra and Granada prepare their militaries and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, railroads continue to built in Portugal, and the other Iberian states. Meanwhile, the Emperor João VI, influenced by the Portuguese Prime-Mister, Pedro de Bragança, starts to take some measures to centralize the Empire, namely decreeing that both postage stamps and currency are to be issued for the empire as a whole. Coins through one real are also minted in the name of the empire, while higher valued pieces are issued by the kingdoms. Meanwhile, Garcia Fernandes de Lara, son of Fernando Afonso de Lara, Lord of the House of the Infantado and presumptive Price of Galicia, marries Sofia de Haro, eldest daughter of the Prince of Asturias. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 3800 sq km and Angola expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Brasil, and some efforts to connect some existing railroads to each other are made. Meanwhile, it expands by 29,200 sq km. Meanwhile, the Post-A'Asabist states under Brasilian or Portuguese influence expand by 5000 sq km each. Meanwhile, Granada expresses its wish t send a delegation for the 1892 Olympics.
  • France's economy improves and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, La Marche becomes a French vassal after the continued attempts of the previous years.
  • Mutapa builds up its military.
  • The Rokkaku Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation. Empress Go-Shōtoku continues seeing the construction of railways throughout the nation. Shinto shrines, Taoist temples and some Buddhist temples are built throughout the colonies. More funding is put into science and agriculture. More fertiliser is created and used on fields. More air furnaces are also built. Meanwhile, urbanisation continues throughout the nation. More steam power is built, and a few water wheels are built. In the Special Administrative Region of Byakuren, the city of Hata no Kokoro continues being rebuilt along with the Buddhist temple. The military is put on high alert in Byakuren as well, and the border with Patagoshina is heavily guarded. Industrialisation goes well, especially with the help of the Germans.
  • The Federal Republic of Tojiko continues to build up its military. Some Jīdūhist and Amaterasuist churches are built. A few Shinto shrines are also built.
  • The Federal Prefectures of Kagerou/Kasodani continues to build up its military. More Shinto shrines and Taoist temples are built. A few Buddhist temples are also built.
  • The Republic of Himekaidou continues to build up its military. Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples are built throughout the nation.
  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry, with the entire nation being solidly industrialized. The three major religions solidify their control over the entire country, with significant Russian Orthodox and Germanic minorities. An attempted uprising by Equalists fails completely, as the army is too loyal to the government for the coup to spread far enough to be successful.
  • Nouvelle France: We begin to industrialize and build up our armies. We begin to open trade with nations and we begin to invest a lot in social spending. We begin a slow transition towards socialism and begin to ask Neu Berlin, Brasil, and the Spanish Empire for an alliance. We also begin constructing an entire railway network across the country and expand our cities even more. We begin to create a sewage system to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases and begin to expand our borders a bit but not too much for the sake of having good relations with other nations.
    • Expand your borders where? You have no borders that can be expanded.
  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine. Electricity begins replacing steam engines. 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. Most of Myanmar is now cities. Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begins to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and are slowly adopting electricity. We continue to construct areas for the World's Fair to be held. Because of the possibility of the World's Fair not being held in Rangoon, all our construction will be able to have a second use after the World's Fair. An electricity web is build in Rangoon and the grammephone, radio and cars are introduced. We begin the construction of the world's first telephone, electricity and radio line in Rangoon. We ask all nations to support Rangoon's bid for the World's Fair for 1895. With our entering of the Eurasian Railroad Committee, Rangoon Railways begins to go to Russia. We finish the part from Yakutsk to Novosibirsk and the part from Minsk to Moscow. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): Troops are sent to Normandy and Sandgau territories to protect them as per their request. The government is shocked and slightly worried by the violence of the UER revolution in Italia last year. The Socialist Party issues a memorandum denouncing violence as a means of attaining power. The document goes on to say ask "why violence should be used when the Party has already taken great leaps in equalising Saxony through purely legal means?" The country's small Equalist following is somewhat encouraged by the events in Italia, but in their own Party memorandum, they note that Saxony, "with its already quite progressive policies...and generally politically placid population...is not in a climate susceptible to violent revolution." The conservative Opposition, sort of spooked by the Italian revolution, helps the Catholic-Democrat and Socialist coalition government pass laws defining a minimum wage and lowering the number of hours a worker can be forced to work. Despite the general spooked-ness, the Government pursues friendly relations with the UER. The nation industrialises. Work is continuing on the tram networks in Dresden and Leipzig, and the cities of the West are considering their own networks. In Saxon Australis, the government continues to invest the extra money gained from the Myanmarese mining taxes in public works. New public libraries, museums and art galleries are established. Scholarships for young artists, musicians and writers are also set up, and money is given to fund expeditions into the continent's harsh centre. SA expands 2000 sq km inland. Saxon West Africa sends troops in to the newly-protectorated Kingdom of Teke. SWA expands 2000 sq km inland, keeping south of the line already demarcated with the Hellennes.
  • The Hellenic Union is shocked by the sudden uprising within the Hellenic populace and military, and the prime minister attempts to control the uprising, however his government falls in July, four months after the uprising began. The new pro-UER government, after establishing close ties with the rest of the UERcontinues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic peninsula to sput the economy on. 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 being built and is placed at both the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack. The Hellenic Union continues to expand both its economy and its military and its colonies are expanded. Nea Konstantinoupoli is expanded by 48,000 sq km. Artillery becomes more widespread and is used to protect the Union. The socialist government spreads to Cyrenaica, and revolts spread to Tamania and Athamos, who agree to join the UER at the end of the year. The UER government begins to exploit oil deposits in Cyrenaica to market them to the rest of Europe, and encourages Tamania and Athamos to do the same, under a single Hellenic front.
  • Cyrenaica: expands 20,000 sq km into the desert and continues to develop paper mills and cloth factories. The UER government sweeps through the nation and promises employment via the newly planned oil wells.
  • Tamania: continues expanding its military and economy, and the sudden sweep of the UER also occurrs in Tamania, like the Hellenic Union. The new government aggressively expands infrastructure and begins to develop the oil industry.
  • Athamos: continues expanding its military and economy, and the sudden sweep of the UER also occurrs in Tamania, like the Hellenic Union. The new government aggressively expands infrastructure and begins to develop the oil industry.
  • The United Equalist Republics seek to absorb the former Hellenic Union and its territories into four new republics and adding territory to two current republics. The seek the formation of the Greek, Asiatic, Tamanian, and Beninese Republics within the UER framework. (The UER is a union of republics and less centralised than the USSR, everyone can join in). Oldenburg revolts away from the UER and manages to defeat the small force sent to subdue it. Oldenburg asks to join Saxony. All of the republics repair the damage caused by the revolution and are also occupied with putting down minor rebellions throughout their lands. The UER thanks Orissa and Germany for recognising it and agreeing to maintain good relations. A hand is also put out to the Portuguese Empire. The republics send aid to Equalist cells all over the world in the hope of obtaining more allies.
    • Saxony accepts Oldenburg's request. However, we make it clear to the UER that this is not an act of aggression towards the UER, but, as an Equalist country, the UER would understand that if the people want something (ie not being Equalist and joining Saxony), then they should have it.
    • The UER respects the will of the people and after seeing that the majority of the population in Oldenburg want to be part of Germany, the UER releases the state with no hard feelings.
  • Russian military gets a stern update when the newer model of explosive artillery is produced by Izhmash industries, a competitor to Kalashnikov, Inc. Government contracts are awarded and the such, other things happen ... so in any case, Russia works on strengthening its power and position as the defender of the slavic world, issuing a declaration that any nation that wants to break off of the UER is welcome to allow the Russian tsar to become their ruler, joining the Russian realm. The formation of the UER both worsens and improves the position of Equalists in Russian politics. Due to the emergence of the UER, the Equalists split into two factions, the Bolsheviks, and the Menshiviks, with the Mensheviks less extreme and violent, with th Bolsheviks more radical, while still both being Equalists. This causes the Menseviks to gain an astounding 40 seats in the Duma, whil the Bolsheviks are left with ten (a bit ironic, since the Bolsheviks started out as the majority of Equalists members of the party, but then got a minority of seats in the Duma compared to the Menshiviks, who started a minority). The Socialists still control most of the Duma however, with a 55% majority of seats. This is not without payment, however. The violent start of the UER has caused some governement members to become weary of Equalists revolution similar to the Duma bombing of 1858 and more social instability. Russia uses this to produce its first airship fleet consisting of ten Zeppelins, and decide to use them for reconnesence. the hgiher they go, the better they will be.
  • Ukraina works on its eocnomy
  • Belorussia works on its military
  • Kazakhstan federation works on its economy
  • Baltica works on its military
  • and Eesti works on its economy.
  • Apache Empire: The economy is improved, New Jerusalem and Icemountain expand 2000 sq km. The Workers party changes their name to the Equalist party but after that move they are brutally hunted down because Emperor Ekta states " I am not losing the rest of my country." Industrialization continues.
  • Apache Preatorate: The military is improved with many HRDG's being placed along the border and industrilization continues. Preator Geronimo notices the lack of efficiency in the governemnt and begins to implament civil service exams and makes it mandatory that all citizens must attend school from ages 9-17 from 8 AM to 5:30 PM. Preator Geronimo also announces the creation of an alliance called the Greater Preatorate and all fedgling Preator nations can join. Many people in the Preatorate are uneasy with the rise of the Equalists and fear an invasion will happen. Liberators are sent to Neu Berin, New Russia, Northern Mayan, Tamania, and Nuevo Italia. The go ahead is given to the Liberators and their cells in New Russia to commene the Pure Revolution. Mods, are you going to decide how this unfolds because nobody is using New Russia?
  • Novorossiya = Nuovo Italian vassal.
  • ​Nuovo Italia, Novorossiya and Tamania are all part of the UER.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. The government proceeds with caution in dealing with the new Equalist (socialist, communist?) governemnts. Immigration is limited. The Empire makes plans for the construction of a canal to link the two oceans. The Royal Science Academy continue studying the 'steam turbine', as well as experimenting with crude oil. Electricity becomes a popular amenity in some more wealthy provinces. A new type of clothing becomes available, work pants with metal rivets to keep the fabric from wearing (OTL Blue Jeans). The Juun family continues the construction of the battleships.

  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Prime Minister Kusadrus is re-elected as Industrialization continues to deepen. King Maughold remains popular, and the TNOPUD Corporation finally cracks the formula to produces Cocide, which they combine with carbonated water and fruit juice to create a drink they call "Ispep'Cola" afrer the inventor of the drink James Ispep'ijichin. Equalist cells are cracked down on with force, while the remaining A'Asabist population in the North becomes more accepting of central government and begins running candidates for office.
  • Yagich Rafael: Industrialization deepens, Queen Scholatica remains popular. Prime Minister John Quintillian fails in his bid for re-election and is replaced by the charismatic Andrew Nos'kcaj'hgog, a rough-hewn leader from the extreme outlying island of Yagich Michael Angelus, who relies primarily on the monolithic support of the settlements off the main island, and a high level of support in the rural areas on the main island. His election frightens many in Yagich Rafael Yagich and is met with trepidation by scholastica. It is rumored that he has Equalist sympathies but he denies this, claiming only that he "wishes to strike a better monetary deal for kelp-famrers by granting local banks the permission to print and loan money, free of the shakles of the big-city banks!" As a show of force to convince the urban elite that he is a democrat, he engages in a brutal crackdown on Equalist cells - which some worry is "too extreme".
  • Attican Union: Industrialization deepends. The aging Prime Minister Conrad is re-elected yet again as he nears the age of 80. May worry that his age is a problem, but his "Selk'nam Christian Party" retains a massive majority in Parliament. An ideology known as the Anti-Violentism gains a following among many citizens as a reaction to the nation's Pratorate history and the saber-rattling from neighboring Praetorates (OTL Pacifism).
  • Praetorate of Eternal Matter: Industrialization deepens. Praetor Euclid takes a great risk by travelling to Venice to personally meet the leadership of the new UER, hoping to persuade them to help him build up his country, and to tacitly warn them to support him as their primary ally in the region rather than the more radical Praetorate of Pure Science, which he knows to be aggressively building up their military with UER help. He suggests buildin a UER naval base in his country. (UER, please respond).
    • ​The UER agrees and sends workers and ships to construct a large naval base on the island.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Industrialization continues. Praetor Cicero makes plans to visit Venice but is forced to cancel at the last minute when a massive explosion rocks the Prator's Palace. Protests in support of the mysterious Eris happen almost weekly, and it is rumored she is behind attacks. on November 6th, when Cicero plans to finally leave for Venice, his ship exxplodes as he boards, killing him and his entire entourage. One hour later. Eris' supporters seize the Praetor's Palace. Having not been publicly seen before, and only rumoured to even be in the country, Eris finally reveals herself, having been disguised as a peasant fruit-seller for two years while secretly planning the resistance. She appears on the steps of the Praetor's Palace, and declares that "The Pratorate has left its roots! Look at us! We fail to spread the Revolution and our so-called "Praetor" wallows in his grand palace while neglecting the scince that can build our people up. I tell you today that I am Pratoress, and this will not continue. The stale order will be discarded, starting with this palatial monument to national sedation!" Eris then walks down the steps of the palace, where she reveals a large box with a plunger. She pushed the plunger down and an explosion rocks the palace, collapsing the roof. She then orders the mob, "now let us destroy what is left of the old!". Eris sends emissaries to Venice to convince them that she is a far more effective ally and to send more forces, a naval base on Praetorate land is also offered. Plans are made for Eris to visit Venice in the next year. (UER, please respond).
    • ​The UER agrees and sends workers and ships to construct a naval base on the island.

The German Navy embraces newer battleship technologies, leaving the small and unwieldy ironclads in the past. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically.

With the use of Prussian tungsten steel and Orissan aid, the tower becomes an impressive (if unfinished) monument to Australis and the spirit of its proud people. Schieng Laboratories is founded in Nuremburg (OTL Siemens Labs). Heinrich Booth builds the first radio device that is capable of transferring sound (OTL radio) he also perfects the radar system developed by Neu Berlin. Equalism begins to spread to Australis.

In England, Saxonische, the German-English hybrid now makes up 20% of the native speakers. London bids for the Olympic Games. The Britannics form their own parliament in the city of York. Industrialisation continues with London being the epicenter. Electric lights cover the major cities. London begins construction of the "underground" a system of subterrainian railways and stations, based of the Neu Berlin idea. Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England.

Inventor Charles Gramme invents the first Grammephone, an adaptation of an earlier Neu Berlinian design, this time, instead of using a cylinder, a flat shellac disc is used and a tone arm glides over the grooves of the disc, creating sound, which is then amplified by the horn. Plans to develop the "Statue of German Unity" one, located in Munchen, one in Neu Berlin (Statue of Liberty) work begins on the two statues. Wales, Britanny and Ireland join the Commonwealth.
  • Commonwealth of Carthage: Cartheginean politicians for the Carthage Assembly General. Reichskommisariat Georg Houslbring is placed as military governor until a Prime Minister is established.

The faceists are rooted out of the empire, and executed by the government for their treason, with thousands of them fleeing overseas to escape Imperial justice. Bonoman, suspected of offering the faceists refuge in defiance of their Ethiopian rival, is declared an enemy of the empire by Nigeria and Mali, who request and are granted imperial permission to invade and punish Bonoman for its perceived wrongs against Ethiopia.

The new territory is given four representatives in the state Landtag. Top-level military and civilian strategists are, quite honestly, overcome with joy about the accession of Oldenburg to the Kingdom. For literally about a century, we've wanted Oldenburg, and to have it literally walk into our hands like it has ... it's like a miracle. The Strategic Subcommittee has a week-long celebration, replete with streamers, champagne and prototype party-poppers. With a brand-spanking-new North Sea Port, the Navy sets to work trying to reproduce something similar to the African "Dreadnought". The Army expands, and work continues on designing a manoauvrable gas balloon (have Zeppelins been invented yet?). The Feldmutze is introduced as the casual headgear for all army units.

Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begins to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and are slowly adopting electricity. We continue to construct areas for the World's Fair to be held. Because of the possibility of the World's Fair not being held in Rangoon, all our construction will be able to have a second use after the World's Fair.

  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The Kaiser opens an orphanage, a lost dog hospital and a veteran's village this year, all three of which were built (and will be maintained) from the Kaiser Erdbert Fund. If the Imperial & Royal family wasn't already revered for their benevolence and friendliness to the poor, this would have done the trick. On to politics: the Equalists, who up until now have been fairly disunited in Saxony, have a proper Congress in Dresden and officially form the Saxon Equalist Party (SEP). They plan to run for seats in the next election. Their platform includes more radical socialist change than the socialists have done (but still keeping the monarchy because, I mean, they help orphans, lost animals and old veterans. Come on!). The military reveals the first Saxon Airship, the Luftschiffe 1 or L1. It looks a lot like the OTL LZ 4. Civilian entrepreneurs see the advantages of air travel, and Karl Ritter von Fressenstein opens up an airship manufacturing company, the very imaginatively named Sachsische Luftschiffbau (Saxon Airship Manufacturing). Industrialisation continues. Electric lights are now even being introduced to, urrgh, lower class households. Colonies expand usual amounts. In Anhalt, the Anhaltese Equalist Party forms a "Red Army", and some Anarchist groups form "Black Armies" (but obviously, due to the nature of Anarchism, they are less rigidly organised than the Red Army). As per the Equalist-Anarchist Compromise of a few years ago, these armed groups come under the administration of the "United Revolutionary Front of Anhalt" (URFA), a leading council made up of members elected/appointed from the Equalist and Anarchist groups. The nobility writes a strongly worded letter to the Prince, warning that if the URFA is not summarily dealt with, then the nobility will be forced to take "extraordinary measures" to ensure "the stability of the Principality".

Meanwhile, the navy of the PS, which has control over the harbor of De Mor Tir City, has laid a blockade around the eastern island. Blockade running is common, but Bowen still institutes rationing with the approval of Folant. In Sant Padrig, work on new weapons, especially variants on the Zeppelin, is underway, and a new, modern navy is worked on.

  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): In a landmark move, the Saxon Equalist Party and the balance-of-power-holding Saxon Socialist Party form a coalition, which comes to be known simply as "the Left". Under the terms of the agreement, if the Left wins the election next year, the SSP leader will become Prime Minister, and the SEP leader will be deputy Prime Minister (exactly the same way as Australia's Liberal-National coalition), regardless of how many seats each party wins individually. Near the end of the year, the Left launches its policy platform: many thousands of slum dwellings will be demolished and replaced with "government housing": houses with running water built and maintained by the government. The former slum-dwellers will be rehoused there, and will have to pay minimal rent (despite their appalling quality, slums in Victorian Era Britain were usually quite expensive (for a poor slum-dweller) to rent), sometimes a mere tenth of what they would have paid their evil capitalist landlord. The Kaiser himself is said to approve of the scheme. The Conservatives say that there are innumerable problems with the scheme, such as where to put the slum-dwellers before their new houses are built, the massive cost of constructing the houses, and compensating the evil landlords (many of whom are, unsurprisingly, conservative voters). The colonies expand their usual amounts. There's a lull in Anhalt.

  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The Landtag eleections take place in the middle of the year. The "Left" coalition spends thousands of man-hours visiting lower class and middle class people, spreading their message of equality. Left candidates even visit slums to canvas support for their public housing idea. The Conservatives don't really put that much effort into getting the lower classes (urrgh) to vote for them, but focus on the rich and middle classes. On polling day, there is a bumper turnout. After a week of counting, the votes are in: the Left coalition wins 61% of seats (21% to the Equalists and 30% to the Socialists), the Catholic Democrats win a mere 10%, the Conservatives another 20% and the minor parties the remaining 9%.

Arian begins to consider alternatives, knowing that he will soon be exiled or forced to flee. The Order of St. David publicly condemns Arian, and states that he "is a dirty Jew." Anti-Semitism flares after similar comments are made by Bowen and King Folant. This leads many Jews to flee to the western island. A new idea, based upon the need for a Jewsih homeland begins. Investement in new medicines continue to be made, and progress resumes on the trans-island bridge.

Novomoskovsk also expands 30,000 sq km due to people arriving there, and Neu Germanica expands 16,000 sq km. In Neu Berlin, gold is discovered at the site of the OTL Kaiyuh and Ruby mining districts. This causes a great number of people to go gold hunting. Some people also search for gold within their own territory, especially in Kasodani. Discouraged miners search closer towards the Mayan border, and they strike a lot of gold there. (Seriously, CL, you've been sitting on this gold for half a century. I just remembered that it's there.) Tesla and Essen are still making stuff and whatnot blah blah blah. Transcaucasia expands military.
    • Later Gold rush would boost my economy when I needed it. I was planning to save it. But since you brought it up ...
    • If you claim to invent the aeroplane, then it will not be allowed due to the fact you do not have the technological capabilities to do so.
    • Please explain how so. I have all the necessary precursor inventions, as well as the widespread interest and government funding. The fact that OTL's industrial sleeping giant invented the plane was a mere stroke of luck. In OTL, it could just as easily have happened in Germany, or in France, or in Russia, or in Britain, or in Canada, or in Spain. It was only a matter of who sat down to think about it first.

    • I'd really prefer that you'd keep the rebeles out of PMII.
    • Was that directed at me? If so I have no idea what you're talking about, is there a reason I can't try to stir up dissent in another nation (happens all the time OTL). Nobody says they have to be successful.

Prime Minister Andrew rams through legislation allowing him to seek a third term and orders the military to shut down the Central Bank of Yagich Rafael in favor of his local currency scheme. in a rare interferance in politics, Queen Scholastica exercises her position as Commander in Chief to order the military to stand down, much to Andrew's frustration.
  • Attican Union: Industrialization deepens, but Prime Minister Ludwig orders a military buildup in the face of the actions of Praetoress Eris in the Praetorate of Pure Science.
  • Praetorate of Eternal Matter: Industrialization deepens as the UER naval base brings much business to the island. Praetor Pythagoras is advised by his generals that the Praetorate of Pure Science is becoming an "unstable ally", but resists, noting that Praetoress Eris is "a witch born of guanaco dung, but an effective witch born of guanaco dung, and most importantly she is our witch born of guanaco dung". This remark becomes his most remembered quote some years later.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Praetoress Eris continues to drive the nation toward industrialization at break-neck pace - often literally as many convict labourers die building factories and monuments. Many are excecuted for distributing pamphlets claiming to know her identity, although these pamphlets never make a claim as to who she really is - each of them is signed by a mysterious man calling himself "The Jester" and printed on special paper that contains a watermark with a picture of a juggler riding a guanaco. No one can find the manufacturing plant that produces the special paper, but somehow massive amounts are produced in order to show which pamphlets are legitimate. Many seem to contain cryptic messages, and each new pamphlet seems to be met with a harsher reaction. Particularly, one flyer generates a huge response from the regime, with police flooding the streets and burning down houses where stacks of the flyers are found - the flyer contians only one sentence, written in small typeface at the top of an otherwise blank page - it reads "Your circus shall soon end, Praetoress." Eris sends to the UER to send investigators to help her track down the Jester and his paper manufacturing operation. (UER Response)
  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry, with the entire nation being solidly industrialized. The three major religions solidify their control over the entire country, with significant Russian Orthodox and Germanic minorities.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The government's "public housing initiative" seems to be going well. The first lot of former slum dwellers have been relocated to the new developments, and there is universal acclaim for the sanitary nature of the apartments. The conservative Opposition demands that the costings for all this be revealed to the public, but the government simply ignores the request. The army expands a little, and the new smokeless gunpowder is used in the machine guns. The army unveils its latest standard-issue air-rifle. it features a far superior air capacity, giving soldiers more shots per air cannister. The army also unveils its first active-duty dirigible, the AD1 (Army Dirigible 1). It is equipped with a hole in the gondola from which bombs can be thrown onto an unsuspecting enemy. Obviously work is continuing into making a more efficient method of doing this. The Sachsische Luftschiffbau company opens its first commercial airship line between Dresden and Munich. People may now float above the hustle and bustle of the roads and railways in style for a mere 20 Marks each way. Obviously this is too expensive for the common folk, but the paying bourgoise/noble passenger wouldn't want the rabble interfering with his peaceful commute, would he? The colonies expand the usual amounts. Saxon Austrais industrialises, and Saxon West Africa focuses on extending telegraphs and railways inland. Tanimbarkai works on modernising its helth system, sending medical students to Saxony to learn modern medicine. In Anhalt, the violence continues, with attrocities begin committed by both sides. Senior Saxon military and civilian leaders meet with the Emperor to discuss the situation. Not wishing to support an extremist insurrection, but also not willing to support an illegal Regency which accepts the Annist pretender as Prince, the Saxon Committe decides to recognise the legitimate prince's son: Karl-Rupprecht, as legitimate prince, and pretend that nothing untoward is happening. An excellent solution.

Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begins to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and are slowly adopting electricity. We continue to construct areas for the World's Fair to be held. Because of the possibility of the World's Fair not being held in Rangoon, all our construction will be able to have a second use after the World's Fair. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We spend 20% of our countries reserves to industrialize. We ask for people to vote for us in the 1905 World's Fair. To get the Equalist's votes for the World's Fair, we send support to the Chinese and Greek Equalists.

  • Russian governement is weary of the new more militant Chinese Equalists that have emerged, but nonetheless request that all previous treaties signed by the imperial Chinese government carry on into the new (that includes the slightly-more-than-non-aggression-agreement and membership of the Eurasian railroad commission). Russian fortifications along the Chinese border are increased, as the new regime is untested, and Russia still feels sory for missing out on helping the empire (but they don't tell anybody that). Bolshevik (aggressive Equalist) leader Demid Lavrentiev congratulates the Chinese in their revoliution, and secretly invites them to assist in an Equalist revolution in Russia, while Menshevik Leader Leon Davidov sends a letter mourning all the bloodshed and invites him to spread Equalism by more peaceful means from now on. The Bolsheviks adopt the ideology of a "Vanguard party", and their branch of equalism soon becomes known as Levrentievism (or Bolshevism), and Menshevism gets another name, Davidovism. Russia gets its first Zeppelin air force, and somebody proposes that instead of the highly flamable Hydrogen gas. X-rays are discovered in the Academy of Sciences, and when their discoverer, Svetlana Rubinova uses them to photograph her skeleton, she decrees that she has seen her death. In another experiment (OTL known as gold foil), alpha particles decaying from radium are being fired at gold foil by Evgeni Pecherin, who then discovers that the atom is made of a small, dense, positively charged nucleus with electrons orbiting.

Better train engines are being constructed in the prototype stage as the need for faster and more powerful as well as efficient trains evoloves. The SOC has begun to diminish in strength. Its glory days are far behind it and although it does own a significant portion of the railroads, they are nowhere as powerful as they used to be. The heads of the SOC, therefore, decide to take some desperate measures to salvage the dying company. In a major transaction, they establish SOC Rail and they create a new oil company called SOC Shell. Although these use up almost all of their remaining funds, the heads hope this could save their company. The navy's second Balvan-Class ship made from tungsten steel is launched.

Sanjay Rajpath's work on radar has left the nation with a huge (and secret) advantage. Sanjay Rajput also manages to create the first proper motion picture camera (tell me if someone got there first). The subway becomes a part of everyday life in Delhi. The tram link has been completed in Kolkata and it helps to link up one part of the city to the other part. The small town of Khitagong begins to receive attention as its position allows for better trading access toward the East.

The census has provided the nation with some statistics which are needed for the nation to implement the NHS. The population of the United Maharajya is 521 Million with a large population depletion in the south due to the civil war. Over 27% claim ancestry from the Imperium Africana. The three siblings continue their taxing work but have continued to make rapid progress. Army funding has allowed for a fleet of prototype ships to be able to be tested for the army which take great interest in testing them. Tata Motors sends their first batch of armoured cars to Aprika to fight in the colonial war taking place. Seeing the fact that the armoured cars lack many aspects to be properly adequete in battle, a new vehicle prototype is made by enlargening a car engine and making the vehicle much bigger. Tata comments that the vehicle looks like a "water tank". The name tank begins to catch on. The Socialist government begins to implement even more reforms to boost the nation and help its industrial base grow.
