Principia Moderni Map 1930 Key
  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Finland also expands Moriyää by 2400 km and Toyosaari by 100 km. Empress Sonja Komeiji, angered about the International Union/LoN ideas, especially their limited official languages and other stuff, has announced that she refuses to join any World union stuff. She proceeds to ban all other languages that are not official (Finnish, Nipponese, Nirandogo (にらんど語)), or recognised as a minority language (Swedish, Karelian, Estonian, Russian, Nordspeak, Sami languages), from ever being spoken in Finland, so to protect her languages from ever becoming endangered; but will still allow the teaching/learning of another foreign language (like French) in schools. She establishes the Hakurei League, so that all former Finnish colonies could join (or maybe a few other nations if they want) a rightful peaceful organisation that doesn't discriminate any other languages (read: have no official language), and anyone has a say in (unlike the Security council where it's limited and rotated). Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola again facepalms at the Empress actions but says nothing in that regard. Meanwhile Karoliina Aaltonen and some other Finnish and Swedish female artists releases more animation films this year, and are shown in the Kääsödani Elokuva film theatre. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) company continues to develop their own actual working functioning tank, will be finished by next year. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik more roads are built, and Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask joins the Hakurei League.
    • The official language rule was tossed out because we have too many potential advocates who would not speak Russian/French/Mandarin/Hindi.
    • I see. Well, won't change Empress Sonja Komeiji's mind much. She will stay out of the LoN/IL stuff.
  • Shogunate of Kōshi continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. More roads are built and more Shinto shrines are also built. Empress Kaija Tanaka, along with former Shogun Helmiina Konpaku, die in their sleep. A huge funeral possession passes through the political capital Reiuzi, and former Empress Kaija Tanaka is buried in Toyoreiden and is now known by her posthumous name, Empress Tanatoku; while Helmiina Konpaku is buried in Yorireiden. Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen, Mikaela Tanaka and the rest of the Kōshis pay their respects and condolences. Soon Mikaela Tanaka (female, Shintoist) becomes Empress of the Shogunate of Kōshi. Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen improves the economy, and joins the Hakurei League. Meanwhile Anti-Swedish sentiment rises up, again. Empress Mikaela Tanaka begins to reorder her palace a bit. In Republic of Kazami, Prime Minister Tenshi Mäkeläinen improves the infrastructure too and joins the Hakurei League.
    • Sultan Ahmad Tajuddin welcomes Empress Mikaela Tanaka to the throne, and has talks with her to discuss Kōshi-Brunei relations.
    • Empress Mikaela Tanaka thanks Sultan Ahmad Tajuddin for the welcome and gives him a gift of flowers, and also asks for an alliance.
    • King Andrew I of the PCU expresses his condolences, and also congratulates the New Empress and provides a gift of 5 Kingsley Specials- very rare and expensive cars from the automotive giant Kingsley. The King also expressed his wishes of an alliance.
    • Empress Mikaela Tanaka thanks King Andrew I of the gifts and also accepts his offer of an alliance.
    • Brunei and Kōshi already have an alliance? The talks were just talks about continued co-operation and welcoming the new Empress.
    • I don't think so. The Shogunate of Kōshi wasn't established at the time the original Brunei player was here.
    • Well if we didn't then, Brunei accepts Koshi's offer of an alliance.
    • Bharat's Maharaja shares his condolences and also congratulates the new empress. The Maharaja gives the new Empress a private aircraft made for the new empress herself while the Maharani gifts her very expensive purses and shoes.
  • Democratic Republic of Käwäshiro expands by 15,000 km and heavily builds up military, continues industrialisation, building infrastructure. Premier Kyösti Kitano has the economy improved.. Lingxiu Kirsi-Marja Miyako also continues to send military support to help Onguayal in their war against the French colony.
  • Australian Kingdom expands by 10,000 sq km south, according to the Constantinopole conference. An explosion destroys a factory in the capital of Australian Kingdom. Catholic church was just 20 meters away, but did not take any damage. Members of different religion are suspected to participate in this.
    • Bharat says Islamics were behind this and say they would never harm the Australians (think about it, we make up half the ethnic population).
  • Nippon leaves Brunei to its own accord now, as Brunei is now as strong as its ever been. Nippon sees the League of Nations a way for Trotsky to spread his socialist propaganda, and see the International League being too weak to ever be able to enforce so called "International law." Nippon is also annoyed that Japanese, Hanthawaddian, Vietnamese, Italian, Arabian, and Hungarian aren't official languages of either leagues as they are very widely spoken. Nippon also highly doubt the ability of the leagues to be able to project their power, and so stay clear of both of the leagues. The Asian Council headquarters are built in Nippon's colony of Ringga as it is a central location and fairly neutral too. Finally Nippon amps up its military including adding two newly built aircraft carrier ships into the INN.
    • Empress Sonja Komeiji of Finland personally offers Nippon and her friends (i e, former colonies, vassals, puppets) to join the Hakurei League if it's all right with them.
    • Again, the language rule was tossed out for the same reasons. And what makes the IL so weak looking in the face of the LoN.
  • Brunei amps up its military and builds up infrastructure and Sultan Ahmad Tajuddin continues to lead government reform the nation. Sultan Ahmad Tajuddin begins to think about who he is to marry and become his wife.
  • Sunda continues to amp up its military too, as new modern weapons are brought in. Sunda looks to spread its global influence and writes up the Semarang Convention (basically a clone of OTL Geneva convention). The International Court of human rights is built in Semarang too. The Sundanese government ask all the nations of the world to follow the Semarang Convention and give all the people of the world thes basic human rights.
    • Why on earth would the ICHR be built if only Sunda will use it?
      • Its not just for Sunda
  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha expands inland by 16,000 sq km as the nation becomes the world's largest exporter of cattle. Nagin-Airship corp. release the Nagin V.6 and also invent liquid-fuelled rockets. These are used to give the V.6 extra thrust/push when needed.
  • Bubblegum is invented in Chamoru.
  • The military forces are amped up in the USA, Muisica and Songone as a large modernization programme begins, focusing mostly on the navy and air forces of the US bloc nations. US doctor/engineer Tomo Mon invents the iron lung to treat patients who were suffering from polio with chest paralysis.
  • The Pan Celtic Union states that it will not join the LoN or IU. The King states that the league in its current form is biased toward Russia and the International Union is too weak to protect the interests of the Union. King Andrew I announces that the Union's stance is not permanent and if Russia can streamline the LoN to be in more favour to smaller nations and allow more official languages OTL UN had 12 official languages. Pan Celtic Union's second aircraft carrier, the PCS King Alfred, is finished and christened in memory of the late King. Research begins into long range bombers and the Theory of Relativity is founded by a German Emigre named Albert Einstein. Radar is developed and new radio broadcasting towers pop up all over the Union.
    • Again, how the heck is the IL weak? And also, it's INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE, everyone. Please get that straight. Also, the language thing was tossed out because too many nations who could or would join either league would not speak any of those languages.
    • Actually, the UN has only six official languages, and six official language candidates. Russian, English, French, Spanish, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese. Esperanto, the world's most successful planned language, was proposed but the US vetoed it. In the League of Nations, France vetoed it. http://www.uea.org/index.html
  • Hungary continues updating its military. Dél-Afrika expands 110250 sq km.

    • Empress Sonja Komeiji adds Danish as a minority language, and says sorry. However, the ban for other languages still stands.
  • Russia Tries to mediate LoN or IL settlements. Einstein's Theory is taken seriously by Scientists, who are now allowed to speak their mind since the Separation of Church and state in Russia has become more pronounced. Some schools in Moscow and St Petersburg Begin to teach Darwinian evolution in Curricula. Meanwhile, New Elections Take place, and The Socialist Democrats Led by Trotsky do not get a Plurality of the Votes. They get 167, the Octobrists get 168, the Liberals get 97, the Soc. Revolutionaries get 47 and Nationalists gain 20. The Polish Party gains 10 seats, and the remaining 15 seats are won by independents. A government is formed by the Octobrist Leader Kerensky, forging a coalition with the Liberals and just gaining a majority with the coalition having 265 over the 259 seats of opposition. Kerensky is Sworn in as Prime Minister, and Trotsky is Leader of the Official Opposition. However, Vote fraud is suspected. Meanwhile, Russia discusses to Merge both the Finnish and Moscow Gran Prix into two legs of the Same event, and possibly have other races in different nations. Meanwhile, Automobiles become more affordable as Lada is formed for that specific purpose, non-luxury, quality, affordable cars, and Skoda moves its HQ to Warsaw.
    • How is it Darwinian evolution? We didn't have Darwin in this timeline did we? Also Skoda is a Czech company, formerly an arms manufacturer then moved into cars after buying the Laurin-Klement company (who made cars and bicycles) in 1924. Its not Polish, its a Czech conglomerate.
    • We did have a Dravidian equivalent of him in the game!!

    • Bharat responds immediately and tanks, along with troops and aircraft, roll into the country to save the Hindus and liberalize the country.

    • Govapuri declares support for Bharat on their war, and asks again for Bharati protection.
    • Bharat responds by saying that the support is much needed and protection is guaranteed.
    • The Pan Celtic Union states that a person must have freedom of Religion. To deny such a right is to deny the People the opiate of the masses and asks Australia to reconsider their harsh stance on innocent people.
    • Australian Kingdom states that Bharat started this all by sending the religious attacks, so the countermeasures had to be taken. Australia wants the word to understand, that Bharat's words are nothing, but synonyms of power, wealth and reputation.
    • Bharat says we send none of it and we were trying to help but you turned us down.
    • Australia: "So it's us who turned you down? Dear Bharat. Before my death I want to tell you something - you know that you and my father had really good relations. Nothing seemed to stop the friendship. And the day when you sent the attack on us, is the day you backstabbed us, ruining the whole friendship routine. You are nothing but an imperialist, dreaming of only land. Okay. The idea of killing all Hindu people was a bad idea. I am now canceling my order, and making the new order, of killing and publicly torturing any bharatti politician for the crimes you did. You are the last Bharatti politician to step on my land. Now get out." - Australia gives last minutes to Bharat to respond, and then he would be kicked out of the throne room.
    • Sunda pledges to support Bharat after Australia broke the Semarang Convention, and sends military aid.
    • Bharati ambassador: "It is not I, or my nation for the matter behind these acts. We would not backstab a nation we helped create, in fact no nation would. The ordering of the killing of Hindus shows what a sick mind you have. Indeed Bharat is imperialistic, but we do not kill people for the sake of it. However, if you will continue like this so shall we, and believe me when I say this, but Australia will see new light under a fair and democratic government. You don't need to kick me out, I will leave on my own, but mark my words" - The Ambassor. He soon leaves and heads back to the Australian colonies.
    • John II would be outraged after the ambassador would leave. He would begin throwing tables, statues and other obstructions all around the throne room. John II would later order the soldiers to surrender. John II would await in the throne room, to be killed by someone from Bharat alliance or one of citizens of Australian Kingdom. There was no point for Bharat to lose troops, as John II stated to his men, after he saw the frontline moving quickly towards the capital of Australian Kingdom.
    • The ambassador quickly joins the front lines and knows that the King will have to surrender very soon. When news comes through of his murder, he breaks-down as he was great friends with the king and knew whichever organisation commited these crimes would not be spared, he would make sure of that. Bharat declares the war to be over when the king orders his troops to surrender. With the war over, and a power vaccum in Australia, Bharat suggests one of the members of the Bharati Royal Family who had fled from Australia be crowned king. This member was born to the sister of the first king's consort and a Bharati origin man. Australia officially has a chance to enter a dynastical union with Bharat.
    • Wife of John I - Maria, who is still alive, as a highest-ranked member of Australian Kingdom, signs the contract of dynastical union, and fully supports this action.
    • (Darn! I was ready to declare war!) Denmark, which had originally intended to declare war on Australia for its anti-freedom policies, now sends troops to Australia to find the terrorist organization that caused this mess.
    • Denmark, after two months of investigation would find out, that the terrorist attack was hired by nobody else, but John II himself.
    • Denmark is shocked and apalled. They appreciate receiving the message, however.
    • Bharat disagrees with the Danish result and launch their own investigation. As the child who was going to take control of Australia is too young, the present leader of Bharat takes control.
    • This result was given to us by Australia. Denmark did not find this out. (The Aussies said the after two months bit, not the Danes.)
    • Pfft, I know that. Its just to give more depth.
  • The Nupe Igala Union develops military for a plan of invasion of Zamfara. The Nupe Igala Union requests any help anybody can give.

Called Caodi (The Meadows), the independent city is just outside Dongfang, though has adopted many of their customs (save for prohibition). Though the Dongfang government is aware of this, the police are largely ineffective against stopping people from going to Caodi due to them looking the other way whenever someone leaves in that area.
  • Jiānjué Steel Corporation is established in China. The Corporation, built on the grounds of a pre-revolution factory, quickly becomes a reliable source of steel in the China area.

However, this should be very discreet and word of it should not go beyond high government officials and those involved. Even the people guarding labs should not know the true intentions of this. Not even Danish senators, Welsh parliament members, Russian Duma people--only the highest ranking government officials and those involved. (EG: The Kings and the Tsar) Remember, we're going to end with the bomb!

  • Nippon continues to amp up its military and the corporate warfare of Nippon's big companies gets even more serious. The financial conglomerate Yasuda zaibatsu expands into manufacturing and car parking. Yasuda invents parking metres too, and installs them across Nippon with most of the parking metre money going to the local council with Yasuda taking a 15% cut and payment for installing them all. Mitsubishi's engineers invent the jet engine too, as they become the main airplane supplier for the Imperial Nipponese Air force (INA) and Imperial Nipponese Navy (INN). The Mitsubishi owned Kirin Brewery also invents canned beer too. The Sumitomo Group expands upon the iconoscope in order to create stop-action photography. This is then shown on the television sets, but Sumitomo knows that the average Nipponese consumer wouldn't be able to afford all of this fancy equipment, so they start looking into Polaroid photography. Many universities in Nippon soon begin offering courses in photography and one budding photography student (named Sakai Yuji) invents the zoom lens and the light meter in his first year. Mitsui's robotics department Toshiba create the "differential analyzer", or analog computer, and Toshiba also invent the electron microscope. They then use the newly made electron microscope to start research into nuclear physics and reports that the research may lead to nuclear weapons. Hearing the news about nuclear weapons, the Nipponese government intervenes and makes the nuclear weapon research and electron microscopes state secrets and hides them from the outside world, making the nuclear weapon programme top secret. New findings in the world of nuclear physics are published in scientific journals but the methods are kept ultra mega top secret über classified. The Hiroshima Project begins ...
    • No meta-gaming please guys, you can invent the nuclear weapon stuff I post about yourself in due course but only a turn after me at the very least. All the other inventions and products of the Nipponese businesses are being sold internationally so expanding upon them I don't mind; just not my nuclear weapon research as that is being kept secret and not being sold on the international market.
    • What? What in the name of the atom are you talking about? At the very least you're going to be a turn or two behind the Denmark-Celtic-Russian Joint Research Program which has started before you. Russia, Denmark and the PCU are already well grounded in nuclear physics, and we might have the bomb before you, definitely not after you.
    • We will continue as we have been talking about this in secret for sometime. You don't have to worry, its not like after a year it'll be a bomb, right now we are just in the THEORETICAL stages. In case you forgot. The theory of relativity helped form the a bomb. Since I have Einstein and Russia the research capacity, it only makes sense that we can make a bomb, albeit we are unsure quite when.
    • Its more I don't want you guys copying my breakthroughs and I won't be copying yours. And just because you started two years before me doesn't mean I can't overtake you, the Manhattan Project only overtook the German nuclear energy project because of world war 2; like you say its only theoretical. After all Nippon has been responsible for a lot more inventions than the rest of you, we have the know how. Plus who's to say Einstein even would exist in this timeline? Just because you have one great scientist doesn't mean you automatically get the bomb first. I could say I have Enrico Fermi, Otto Frisch and J. Robert Oppenheimer emigrate to Nippon to build the bomb ...
    • Since when does Nippon have more inventions than Russia? Check anything modern that can be weaponized, and Russia is behind it. Not to mention that Russia discovered radiation, made the first automobiles and airplanes, and discovered the neutron and the atomic chain reaction.
    • Keep telling yourself that mate. Bharat, the ones inventing the dreadnought; Bharat, with the monoplanes; Bharat, the ones making modern Spitfire and Hurricanes; Bharat, the ones making fast machine and assault guns; Bharat, the ones who first started making helicopters; Bharat, the ones making bigger and bigger tanks. Now lets move onto Nippon. Nippon, the ones behind Scotch Tape; the ones behind McDonald; the ones behind TV; the ones behind the A6M (well the Bharati aircraft are better but that's a different story); inventor of signal lights; inventor of liquid-propelled rockets. Must I go on? We have given evidence that you are not making every modernized weapons!! :P
      • Thanks for the support Imp, but not all of those inventions where made by Nipponese companies. Some where from the Commonwealth of E and N, USA and others.
    • Actually Wales made the first car. We also created Radar and the Radio and long range bombing, and The Theory of Relativity... Wales developed a Spitfire based plane called the Thunderbolt AGES AGO Bharat. We have the technology and the researchers so just back off.
    • Yeah, but did you have the Hurricane, or the funding to make a Spitfire based plane with proper powerful engines? Long range bombing, WHAT? Bharat has had mail carrying, long range aircraft ages ago, and we have used them for bombing sorties against Australia and other countries. Researchers, lol. In the 2nd most populated country in the world, I am pretty sure we will have at least a 1000 researchers more. I forgot to add about aircraft carriers (Russia, don't say you have more, cause you don't). Bharat has quite a few, and so does Nippon. There goes your naval advantage! :/
    • Hey I (Denmark) have the aircraft carriers. Got 'em as soon as I got the planes. Built them a year after. Also, forget all technology, think about how far you are in nuclear research. Forget naval and air tech. We have been working on nukes for a while. Anyway, LET THE RACE BEGIN! THE (SORT OF) COLD WAR IS ON!

    • Exactly.Sweden didn't mentioned that colony on their post, so i assumed that it had gone to Finland.--Collie Kaltenbrunner 21:09, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

With the nuclear weapon project now including China and potentially Bharat, Nippon sees the project being completed much quicker and reducing Nippon's government spending. The INA also begin creating a combat suitable helicopter too. Thanks to the Furukawa zaibatsu starting more radio stations, most people in Nippon now own a radio and the radio becomes the main way of getting up-to-date news and information in the country.

    • I'm not sexist, but this is really pissing me off. Where are all the men in Finland? Was there a genocide of Finnish males? No offense to females, but females cannot successfully run a whole country without males.
    • They're still here. There are male governors in charge of lots of small towns and small cities, and there is also a man being governor of Helsinki, and there are a few men in the Finnish government cabinet.

      • oh yes, and Russia wants to buy the patch of islands north of Novaya Zemlya.
      • If you actually read the old pages of the game, you would find that Sweden had originally been a player nation, and when its player quit, he gave Finland all of that land. Next time, read some on the history of your own nation before proclaiming "facts" in a semi-insulting manner.

  • Italy keeps helping Iceland. It asks for any interested nations to join the Sovereignty Defense League, which pledges to protect any developed nation (pretty much all nations except for the NPC African and South American ones) from being totally conquered. To be a member, the nations must simply promise never to take the sovereignty of any developed nation (small areas along the border are fine) and to help any developed nation in a war when its sovereignty is at threat. The Italians continue to make great strides in chemistry, with new discoveries frequently being published. Calora expands into the unclaimed areas of South America that it borders.

New Elecions happen in Russia, yielding similar results, and the same coalition. On June 15, three atom bombs go off simultaneously, one in Novaya Zemlya, one in the Plains of Kazakhstan (is the PCU OK with having their test here?), and another in Greenland (by Denmark). These co-ordinated nuclear device tests, by Russia, Denmark and the PCU (each controling one bomb) are nicknamed the Trinity tests, are the world's first man-made nuclear explosions, and the first working atom bombs. These blasts get much publicity in Russia and abroad, with news crews for movie-theatre news are stationed, and only two reporters, one camera crew, and many military personnel are attending the Russian test. LONG LIVE MOTHER RUSSIA!!!
    • I object to this, as I am pretty sure the first atomic bomb should be detonated in 45-46, not 42 as that did not happen even though there was a war going on!
    • There were three nations working on it, but OK.
    • But nuclear weapon research started much earlier in this timeline compared to our own. So surely it makes more sense for the projects to finish earlier?
    • Hello, three nations working on it for nine years, I am sure we should have it by now.
    • Russia nukes ahoy!
  • Australia expands by 30,000 sq km south-east.
  • Nippon amps up its military and continues working on the nuclear weapon project.

Mitsui's robotics department Toshiba build the first electronic digital computer. Sales of computers to universities across the globe becomes Toshiba's main source of income for financing the development of new even more powerful computers. The Yasuda zaibatsu becomes the world's largest financial institution rivalling the central banks of some nations; and upon hearing the news the Yasuda family hold a party so extravagent that the Yasuda zaibatsu falls back to being the second largest financial institution in the world, but by the end of the year, Yasuda is back to being the largest in the world.

    • ​Russia called dibs on the nuke, thats why there were lots of hype after my post. So, I had your nuke and Russia's and PCU's detonate at the same time in tests nicknamed "trinity".
    • I know you called dibs, you said we all blew it up at once, so I'm saying where I did mine, Denmark. It's a bad idea if you ask me, but it's okay.
    • Thanks.
  • Bharat continues joining up infrastructure from Australia into its colonies. The army trains harder than ever, and gets ready for possibly more war campaigns. S.

She then travels through a forest though she has a struggling time getting through. Three hours later, she is all scratched and bit injured. She tries to continue to Kokkola so she can take a boat to flee to Sätōri. She doesn't make it, and trips once again, but hitting the head on the road knocks her out cold for a while. Soon, by morning, Rin Kivimäki happens to drive by the area and is shocked to find the Empress lying there in the road. She then takes the Empress to the hospital, that's not far from Tsuyukusa Eastern Palace. When the news hit next morning, lots of Finns become greatly concerned that something is going wrong. Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola, after hearing what happened, she becomes personally very angered and has to calm down the nation and to prevent fear from spreading; she is mostly successful doing it. After the Empress is released from the hospital, she goes back to her palace. Soon however, Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola drives to the palace, and proceeds to have a meeting. Once there, Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola tries to explain calmly to the Empress that she can't do this as it caused great fear into the nation. However, Empress Sonja Komeiji then proceeds to break down and cry again; though soon she decides it would be best to have Orvokki Komeiji be in her place as she has lots more confidence and bravery, and Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola agrees with the idea. Soon, back in her office, Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola continues to improve the economy and bring more stability in the nation. Meanwhile, Orvokki Komeiji is in love with the crown-prince (the one from Bhārat) and has a great time with him. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot.

  • Nippon amps up its military and continues working on the nuclear weapon project. The nuclear fuel is found and the sources are reliable, so the team build their gun-type fission weapon fuelled by uranium-235 and the bomb is tested deep in the deserts of the Commonwealth. Lots of government officials from all of the Hiroshima project nations watch the test from the testing base/bunker. The Amaterasu test is successful as the gun-type fission weapon (named Kusanagi by its Nipponese creators) explodes and exceeds the expectations of all of the scientists working on the project. The scientists make another 4 Kusanagi grade nuclear bombs and give one to each of the Hiroshima project collaborators (Nippon, China, Bharat and the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Nganikeha) as well as copies of the blueprints and project findings. Mitsubishi announces the creation of Synthetic rubber and begin to start using it in some of their projects. Mitsui release the slinky toy and film an advert for the slinky going down the famous 3333 stone steps in Misato, Kumamoto Prefecture; the advert is shown in cinemas.

The Commonwealth seeing how the Hiroshima project is over go about coming up with a plan on what to do with the nuclear bases. The original nuclear base where the Amaterasu test was carried out is sold to Nippon, but the Commonwealth wonder if they should sell to some of the other nuclear bases to Bharat and China, as they control their own desert territories where they could carry out nuclear tests. But if offered enough money the Commonwealth will sell the bases to China and Bharat.
      • That post was basically asking if you guys wanted to use the foreign commonwealth bases or set up your own bases in your own territory as you guys certainly have the territory for it. VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 21:54, June 27, 2012 (UTC).
    • Bharat coughs up the money to buy a base for the testing, and will test their own nuke soon.
  • The military forces are amped up in the USA, Songone and Muisica as the modernization programme continues, focusing mostly on the navy and air forces of the USA. They are a bit uncertain to why no other American nations want to join the Union of the Americas. Regardless, the Union begins to decide if a joint currency should be introduced in an effort to join together the markets of the three nations.
    • The Onguayali Commonwealth government had a lot on its mind, and so did not respond to the ask. They, however, do now, and agree to join the Union of the Americas. Andalucia is unsure, however.

Although they are not considered true literature by the establishement, the youth start to take interest, as their rejection by the establishement makes room for the youth to express new ideas through comics and criticize social standards. Meanwhile, The Equality act is signed, giving Men and Women the right to participate in exactly the same processes, legal or otherwise, and own property on their own. Russian Sports Magazines begin to pick up, and the legendary swimsuit editions were always very popular with the male populaiton, much to the dismay of all the women in the nation. a very unfortunate insident shocks russia, as Prime Minister Trotsky is nearly assassinated by Christian and Muslim Extremists, that oppose his policies of secularism. This leads into an OVVR investigation, only to point to members of the Nationalist Party of Russia, who are detained, and convicted of treason, to serve the rest of their lives in Katroga. The Russian Nationalist Party crumbles, and Trotsky agrees to resign after the next elections. Meanwhile, the air force is outfitted with larger bombers, and air fields are ordered to be constructed in each major city in Russia, to be able to be used for military or civilan purposes.

Its was a success albeit a lower yield of explosion compared to the Nipponese counterpart. It is a major step for Bharat on its way to become a more powerful nation. They continue to research the properties of nuclear power for commercial use and the first nuclear reactors are completed, making them ready to be activated. Tanks continue to be produced, and many now are ready to fight in proper battles. A research program is begun to improve the efficiency of cars. This will help lower fuel prices as well as make cars go longer distances. The mass-production of the Thufaan and Agnithuk continues. A jet fighter begins construction, with the government focusing on axil technology engines. This fighter will have two engines and can fly at very fast speeds, the rest is clasified.

  • Sindu expands 110,250 km into the northern uncivilized areas.

1944

Southern Ireland and Wales split due to the PCU badly losing the war with Iceland and cultural differences. The Southern Irish wish to join up with Scottish-dominated Britain and Northern Ireland, to create one British nation that would encompass all of both islands, in memory of the old Keltic Union they once were part of along with Scotland.

The North Irish are not part of Britain. They are an ally of the British, but I can annex them as well.

Why did you do that? I was unable to get online for a long time. My internet was down.

How did they lose the war "badly"? Also, Lurk, was this you who wrote this? The war ended the turn it started, and Wales accepted defeat. I don't see how they "badly lost" the war.

The war started in 1940, and you did not end it that year, in fact you did not even post for the next four years, so I have no idea what you are talking about with the war ending quickly. Even then, Wales, as the loser, could not determine how long the war lasted. You were inactive for four turns, and the Southern Irish are much closer to the Northern Irish and Scottish dominated British, linguistically, historically, culturally, and religiously, than they are to the Welsh. The moderator event stands.
His computer was broken. How on earth was he going edit the wiki, much less the game. The "government's recent inactivity" should never be anything in the game. When was the last time Gal edited the game? Three weeks ago. I don't France colonies and vassals breaking away. He can't end the war; his computer is broken. He had no allies in the war, so they couldn't end the war for him. I think this is very unfair to Andrew and just whoever who wrote this event abusing their power.
On the talk page, the idea of having revolts as a punishment for losing the war was suggested and agreed upon by everyone involved, because otherwise the implausible event of Iceland colonizing Wales would occur. We aren't going to retcon Wales' actions (or lack of) over the past four years because he was gone and say that the war happened in one year. You, Scrawland, made that fact up on the spot. And having allies end the war for him wouldn't work, because he lost the war. If you lose the war, you don't decide how long the war lasts.
  • Dravidia expands Kongo by 25,000 sq km farther north. The Dravidians continue making many medical advancements, with most of the world's new medicines coming out of Dravidia.

Few of the Kōshis sort of dislike the secular stuff, but they tolerate the new law to an extent and don't really say much about it. In Republic of Kazami, Prime Minister Tenshi Mäkeläinen improves the infrastructure. The military is amped up as the air force is improved by creating new modern fighter planes and long range bomber planes too. A few Nagin airships are bought too, including the new V15 Nagin. However, the newer Nagin models are sent to the engineers of Saigyō's air force so the secrets of the rocket propulsion system and jet engine used to drive the Nagin airships could be discovered.

The military recruitment is being halved. Australia asks for Bharat to send some of their soldiers to Australians, so that they could share with their experience and become better at field in case of a war. Australia also begins to build railways to the south of the coastline (since the whole coastline is already has railroads built). Meanwhile, the research on new food packaging is doubled.
  • Nippon amps up its military and begins to produce more Kusanagi grade nuclear bombs. While some parts of the Hiroshima project are moved to help Vietnam in their Saigon project and develop nuclear power generators, and a nuclear power division of the Hiroshima project is started. Synthetic cortisone invented by Mitsubishi and Toshiba prose the idea of hypertext to the computer development world in a journal article about their idea of hypertext. Seeing the animation of Saigyō, some Manga publishing firms open up animation departments and begin animating some of their popular manga into anime films and then shown in cinemas across Nippon. The anime movies are very popular and that in turn makes manga more popular, as it becomes very popular with teenagers and children who could read. Schools are pleased that their students are reading outside of class but worry about manga being suitable reading material for children and encouraging bad reading habits.
  • Chamoru continues to amp up its military mostly improving the navy. Chamorro pharmaceutical company Norratsu invents the kidney dialysis machine and drug sales in Europe skyrocket, as Norratsu announces record after-tax profits.

    • Dravidia decides to side with the Vietnamese-influence British and back them against the Welsh and the other non-Italian Europeans.
    • the Welsh General Assembly stages a coup and King Andrew is overthrown. Peace is declared to Ireland with apologies on behalf of the provisional government. The military and navy is drawn in to protect Wales from British invasion while desperate pleas of peace are issue by the new provisional government. The Emergency Premier states that this war was the cause of a senile old fool whom couldn't understand the logistics of war. The Emergency Premier implores peace with the region with promises of no further aggression and possibly a dynastic union with Britain. The new Welsh government begins a plan to send diplomats and pro Welsh propaganda to the Bretons in Brittany.
      • (as LxCaucassus) The Russian Commonwealth (Russia, Poland, Kazakhstan,

Novorossiya, South Africa and New Zealand) would have helped ... but OK, then. (as Russia) The Russian Emperor Alexi II proposes his candidacy for the welsh throne. With this comes all the benefits of being a member of the Russian Commonwealth, including the commonwealth mutual defence pact (if a piece of land from one commonwealth nation is attacked or threatened, the other commonwealth nations are obliged to help. This, however, does not when you are the aggressor, only if you are attacked), and the ability to sway decisions in the Russian Duma, by having x number of seats allocated to Wales based on your population (because you are in Europe).

      • Wales knows that Russia would help, but it would have only ended in my defeat. Too many nations were lined up against Wales. Also Wales would like to retain its sovereignty, so unless th Commonwealth allows for sovereignty, the Wales must decline.(how is Emperor Alexi a candidate for the throne?? I am just curious, was he a family member distant?
      • It allows for full sovereignty, and Romanov House law (since Emperor Paul I) only allows non-morgonatic (marriage between royals or royals and high nobles (marriage between equals) marriages. Seeing as there are a limited amount of marriage possibilities (the Russian orthodox church further restricting this to marriage between Christians as well, leaving only 11 or so royal options available), so somewhere along the bloodlines, the welsh would have married the Russians in the time span of 8 or 9 emperors (there's a 8/11 chance as marriage between royals was preferred, and Constantine had no children, and had his wife declared equal). I do not make a habit of mentioning the marriages, as it would be a pain, because I need to find what royal houses would be in power and their descendants and so on ... there should be a relative somewhere.
    • Italy and the Sovereignty Defense League withdraw their forces from the north, though they are still wary.
    • Dravidia withdraws its forces from Europe. They are alarmed that such small events could almost start giant wars.

  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. The Nuclear Furnace project continues, but soon comes to a halt as Finland does not have the resources to continue on. Empress Orvokki Komeiji secretly asks the Maharani if she has the needed elements to continue. Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola decides to try to have a mining project so to eventually start digging out any minerals with-in Finland, mainly to find to see if Finland itself has some natural resources other than timber and fishing, as she is getting sick and tired of having only timber and fishing dominating some of the industry in Finland. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot. Karoliina Aaltonen and some other Finnish and Swedish female artists releases more animation films this year too. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company, Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia Oy, Heidi Nyström's Volstiå continue to compete and soon expand to other places in the world. Päiviö Tsukahara (male, Norse Paganist) establishes the Tsukahara-kai (is a Finnish Yakuza) and soon begins to have a few members. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik more roads and motorway are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy bit more.

Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen improves the economy. Animation is very popular in Kōshi, and new animation films continue to be showed in the Safaia Elokuva theatre, and some manga is also made too. In Republic of Kazami, Prime Minister Tenshi Mäkeläinen improves the infrastructure, and plans on somehow having the nation merge into Saigyō. One of Miss Mäkeläinen advisers suggests to the prime minister that Kazami could join the confederacy as a nation member state of the confederation. That way Kazami would still be in control of most of her own affairs.

  • The Russian Duma passes legislature expanding the number of seats form 524 to 754 (each riding will now hold approximately 250,000 people, in contrast to the 362,000 before), the largest addition since the beginning of the Russian Duma. The Ukrainian Senators in the Duma apply to become a Commonwealth state, representing their respective guberniyas. The Russian Duma debates upon the issue of Ukraine Joining the Russian Commonwealth. The Russians see no real danger in letting them go, especially since the signing of the commonwealth Mutual Defence pact. The Duma then approves it in a 368-for, 94-against, and 63 withholding their vote, a landslide. The 375 members of the Imperial Council (four from Each guberniya + 15 privy councilors) vote 300 da-75 nyet. Another Landslide. The process is now past legislative, and the application to become a Commonwealth state is approved by the Russian Senate. The Second stage: the Referenda, are scheduled to take place next year, to allow for debate and proper setup to maintain a democratic system. The third stage, asking the Guberniyas that passed this stage if they would like to keep their seats in the Duma, and the setting up of a central government in those guberniyas that succeeded to separate, with fair and free democratic elections will take place between 1947 and 1949. (the length of time it takes is to ensure that he nation does not fall under tyranny, and to make sure that the majority of the people want to separate, and so that it is done in a democratic fashion, and to ensure constitutional monarch with a Duma is set up). Meanwhile, Russia continues to research the fusion reaction and builds more nuclear missiles. Meanwhile, more funding is put into the Russian Rocket program when they successfully launch the R-1 (OTL V-2 rocket) and are able to somewhat aim it at a target. The Russian rocketeers, in partnership with Sikorsky, develop the cruise missile and the Bezchelovechnaya bomba (Unmanned bomb ... OTL v-1 flying bomb), the first UAV. Meanwhile, innovations to the Russian Tanks make it possible to remote control specifically designed ones. The Russian Tsar produces more evidence as to why he should be the Welsh king, and proposes two solutions to the Welsh: 1. Have paid work camps, and have unemployed workers work on large construction and social projects, and 2. Encourage Ruralization as to alleviate pressure off of soup kitchens because people in rural areas grow their own food. Thus, they don't starve and have generally better lives than urban people during shaking depressions. Meanwhile, the OVVR is divided into the ISB (in translation Imperial Security Service - Imperskaya Sluzhba Besopasnosti) as the trans-guberniya police service and highest investigative power, and the RAMR (In translation the Russian International Intelligence Agency-Russkaya Agenstvo mezhdunarodnoy Razvedki), and the Imperial Russian Nuclear Technology Council (Imperskiy Russkiy Sovyet po Yadernim Tekhnologiyam), commonly called the IRSYaT, is formed.
  • Denmark officially established the National Nuclear Agency, which is in charge of all nuclear related stuff in Denmark and super weapons. Denmark's bombs are classified into three types: neptunium bombs, uranium bombs, and plutonium bombs. An immigrant man named Edward Hubble invents a great telescope and discovers a new planet and names it Pluto. This same man begins a movement to form the International Astronomical Union. All nations and their astronomers are invited to join. The total number of planets is now nine and they are OTL's nine planets. (I refuse to agree that Pluto is a dwarf).

  • Nippon amps up its military and produces more Kusanagi grade nuclear bombs. Joint research with Vietnam for nuclear power generators continues too, and a test nuclear power facility is built in north Kamochatoka prefecture far away from any towns in case the facility goes into meltdown. The Swedish colonists of Wandaarando also demand a referendum on independence, and the Nipponese government allows this, and the referendum is 68% in favour of independence. Some Wandaarando colonists though don't wish to leave Nippon and is this most prevalent in the Salomon islands. So after much deliberation with the Wandaarando independence movement, it is decided that the Wandaarando colonists who wish to remain part of Nippon are to move to the Salomon islands and the independence wanting Wandaarando colonists in the Salomon islands swap houses with them. The Salomon islands become part of the Nipponese colony of Papua Nipponia, whereas the rest of Wandaarando gains independence as the Republic of Wonderlaand. Seeing Wandaarando gain independence starts call for greater self-control for colonies, and more control are given to colonies. However, the Nipponese Australian colonies of Gosobudan and Shuujin demand even greater control and wish to become a vassal state of the Nippon rather than a colony so that they have more self control. A referendum is organised to be held next year ...

  • Italy builds up its military and the military industry. Advances in chemistry are made. The Italian supreme court overturns the ban on the teaching of Hanjappan evolution theory and bans the teaching of Christian creationism, though it does not require schools to teach evolutionary theory and a much vaguer teaching of intelligent design is permitted as of yet. New Maya and Calora both continue to modernize and industrialize.
  • Dravidia makes great progress in biology. Kongo is only expanded by 10,000 sq km (towards the purple colony to the northwest of them), with expansion slowed due to recent protests in the nation for independence from Dravidian rule.

1946

The small coastal nation on the coast of OTL Burma that was once part of Hanthawaddy joins up with the Buddhist Republic of Pegu, as both are almost totally Buddhist and Mon. Meanwhile, the Czechs declare independence from the German-dominated German Union as the Czech Republic, The rest of the German Union unites into one single nation, Germany.

That part joined up with the Bharati protectorate of Bengal in 1934. Bengal is a Buddhist majority country, around 75% Buddhists. Would someone please read my Bengal posts!

Then they would secede from Bengal because they are Mon and not Bengali. And Bengal had been mostly Muslim when Detectivekenny was last playing, so I don't see how Buddhism suddenly rose like that. And you can't just conquer a nation like that without an algorithm or any other reason for them to join up with Bengal. They're joining with Pegu.
And for that reason I converted the population to Buddhism for over two decades, seriously read my posts. And I did not conquer the nation at all, all I did was state they toppled their government and their new Maharajah asked for Bharati protection, which he got. Therefore they are a puppet and not a conquered nation and I do not need an algorithm.
People are not going to go from a majority (about 75% Muslim, probably even more since they were controlled by Islamists) to being mostly Buddhist in this modern age. Especially after only two decades of conversion. Furthermore, in the map you provided, that coastal nation is part of Bengal, not just a protectorate or vassal. Nations are not going to give up their sovereignty just like that! The age of vassalization and conquest and huge empires is over!
But there was a conversion project by Dk a few decades back! The nation was in a dynastical union with Bengal, and I will keep it that way if it has to happen. As well as this, the population of Muslims would be more around the 55% mark, with the Buddhists in 40%. From there is is not tough to get the Buddhists into the majority. And I know the age of huge empires is over, but the age of dynastic unions and expansion isn't fully over, and neither is the age of conquest. There has been no WWII, to teach nations the lesson about war, so it will go on.
That region was never in dynastic union with Bengal, and was independent. Anyway, even if it were in dynastic union with Bengal, you are not portraying it as thus in your map. Also, the conversion efforts by the Hanthawaddians were only before Bengal's independence. Detectivekenny himelf said that the conversion efforts towards Buddhism would not have a huge impact. Furthermore, after coming under an Islamist government, the government would favor Islam, so Islam would have recovered to what I predict would be around 80% of the population, if not higher. Bengal has a strong Muslim majority in their nation, and the Arakan Coast was never part of it after independence.
But I took ages fixing that!! I did the whole process in an orderly fashion, and then had them topple their government. Plus Bharat is surrounding Bengal and could easily send converters from every side. I also funded the Buddhists themselves to covert folk. :(
  • Austria: (Sorry for missing a lot of turns) Austria continues to expand and update military, infrastructure, economy and technlogy. Franz Ferdinand became ill in the winter of 1945 and died on January 10th 1946, his funeral is attended by the his family, the military plus it's broadcast in all of Austria and Franzland. Prince Maxmillian, Duke of Hohenberg is crowned Emperor of UISGA.
  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. The Nuclear Furnace project continues, as now the needed supplies have been delivered. Empress Orvokki Komeiji is satisfied, and soon begins to strengthen security in concern of the Finnish Yakuzas begin a bit more active then ever. Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola establishes a mining project to find other minerals and resources other than timber and fishing. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot. Karoliina Aaltonen and some other Finnish and Swedish female artists releases more animation films this year too. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company, Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia Oy, Heidi Nyström's Volstiå continue to compete and expand to other places in the world. Päiviö Tsukahara and the Tsukahara-kai causes a bit of trouble in Rauma, but nothing major. Soon, Esbjörn Rydberg (male, Norse paganist) establishes the Rydberg-kai (is a Swedish Yakuza) in Kyujigöku. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik more roads and motorway are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy bit more.
  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military and improve infrastructure, and continues industrialisation. Ano Aaltonen continues to spread heavy pro-government propaganda in Mystiää, continues to interpret the Juche idea, into account. He also establishes the military first policy.
  • Imperial Confederation of Saigyō continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. More roads, motorways, railways are built and in the Region of Kōshi more Shinto shrines are also built. Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen improves the economy.

  • Democratic Republic of Käwäshiro heavily builds up military, continues industrialisation, building infrastructure. Premier Kyösti Kitano improves the economy, and secretly continues to send French to the special camps, and soon more are secretly killed as well. Lingxiu Kirsi-Marja Miyako has more weapons and other military stuff being built and more Viking ships, as well as regular military ships are made. Premier Kyösti Kitano continues to hire more pirates and disguise Viking ships, and continues to cause disruption to any European ships in the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Australia: Some bharatians in Australia form a Community of Free People, which is basically a political party, which peacefully tells Bharat, that it would be better if whole Bharatian Australian continent would belong to an independent nation, not a colonial empire. Meanwhile, the actual Australia expands by 30,000 sq km, as it settles a new town of Shalchtown.
    • Many millions of people living in the Australian colonies of Bharat soon begin to agree with this ideology. However, Bharat is not ready to let go of its colonies just yet.
    • Australia suggests that Bharat would give Australia more and more power every year, such as a power to form trade agreements with nations on one year, and a power to form alliances next year, and so on.
    • Bharat thinks that this is not that bad an idea, and this could happen. It will test this idea very soon.
  • The Welsh General Assembly votes on Emperor Alexi's claim of King and passes it within a very narrow margin. ,the Welsh public are highly resistant to a foreigner ruling their lands. As such the General Assembly passes a motion that will allow Alexi as King, but he will have no say in the politics of Wales. However, a referendum is passed that allows Wales to join the Commonwealth as a provisionary member, that remains sovereign no matter what. The economy stablizes but is still very sluggish and many people begin to blame the Collectivists in the government. Widespread anger mounts as the people begin to rebel against their leadership. Wales renames itself the Commonwealth of Wales and because of increasing pressure from the people the whole of the Assemly is forced to resign and new elections begin immediantly for the entire Assembly. The military is put on high alert as there is still a great threat from terrorists and possible sabotage. Defenses are constructed on all borders and a sub net is placed between Ireland and Wales. The Welsh government continues to grow their isolationist policies, while still remaining in full contact with their allies. Royale Radio Corp begins a new news agency called CBC(Commonwealth Broadcasting Corp- a copy of OTL BBC) which begins to shoot film all over the world. Royale also begins production of a new Newspaper agency called the Gaurdian. Propagnda is still being secretly sent to the Bretons in Britanny.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces more Kusanagi grade nuclear bombs. Joint research with Vietnam for nuclear power generators continues too. Development of rocket bombs continues too, as the idea of attaching explosive payloads to rockets is brought in after seeing Russia's rocket programme. A referendum is held in the Nipponese Australian colonies of Gosobudan and Shuujin as the colonists living there demand greater control and wish to become a vassal state of the Nippon rather than a colony so that they have more self control. The referendum is carried out, and they vote 72% in favour of becoming a vassal state rather than being a colony. Thus the colonies of Gosobudan and Shuujin merge into a vassal state of Nippon, thereby creating the Nipponese Dominion of Gosobudan and Shuujin. The Satsuma Corporation invent and release the microwave oven too, as a new way of heating up food and cooking it too. A few large restaurant chains buy microwaves to cook their food quickly but it doesn't really catch on as the food usually doesn't taste as nice and the microwave is very expense to buy, as the people too lazy to cook properly who would use the microwave cannot afford to buy their own microwave.
  • Chamoru continues to amp up its military mostly improving the navy, and a branch of the Chamorro pharmaceutical company Norratsu continues research into chemical weapons and biological weapons. Sales of LSD and MDMA to European as a party drug continue to grow rapidly, especially in the war torn areas of Wales and Ireland.
  • Sunda amps up its military and animation gains more popularity in the country thanks to trade with neighbouring Saigyō. A Sundanese housewife becomes a millionaire after patenting her special plastic container seal, which she names after herself, thus Milawere is born (basically OTL Tupperware).
  • The military forces are amped up in the USA, Songone and Muisica as the modernization programme continues, focusing mostly on the navy and air forces of the USA. The Federation of the Americas nations continue to become more closely tied economically, and more powers are given to the federation parliament who build a fancy new headquarters in Port Atlantica in the USA.
  • The Comonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha expands inland by 17,000 sq km and politicians in the Commonwealth start to become quite annoyed with Austria, Australia and Bharat, all of which are violating the Commonwealth's land claims which were set up in the Constantinople Conference.
    • Bharat says that it had stoped expanding when the Commonwealth asked them to and cannot do anything to go back as people have already settled those areas.
    • Australia suggests that the territory ajudications would be made after Australia gains full independence.
    • Well the Bharati colonists settled there illegally, so its time for them to move on out of there. The Commonwealth is, however, interested in Australia's proposal as the Commonwealth would rather settle this problem diplomatically rather than with force. But reminds the two states, that they are the ones who went back on their word and are violating the international treaty signed by nearly every nation on the planet.
    • May Australian Kingdom remind you, that it did not, ever, sign any treaties regarding Constantinople Conference.
    • Australia got land claims from that conference which it seems to have been abiding by since then. So does this mean the Australian Kingdom renounces the land claims given to them from the conference, thus losing the international recognition of the Kingdom's claim to the lands in its domain?
    • Papers are nothing to do with people. If people want to be part of some nation, then it should be a part of that nation. Australia refuses to abide and Conference laws which it did not participate in.
  • Bharat finishes joining up infrastructure from its Australian colonies and Australia itself. The Australian colonies continue their ask, and they are finally granted slightly more autonomy in home affairs. The army trains harder than ever, and amps up with tanks and infantry begining to work together. Kepping in mind Bengal's request, Bharat invade Botswana from the Bengal colony. It seems like the war should be over fairly quickly. Tanks and armed forces arrive in large amounts into the area, and attack the country. The Thufaan and Agnithuk do a good job in air superiority as well as in strafing targets. The first jet aircrafts also fly over the country in re-con. The jet fighter finishes construction and go to the war zone. Seeing how European countries are better in giving information to their people, the government funds the development of the BBC, the Bharati Broadcasting Corp (yup, another rip-off the BBC). The Times also grows into a larger newspaper company. Tata's Air corps continue producing helicopters, and many troop transport helicopters are are used to transport troops around Botwana. The "Delhi Project" focus on building more nuclear bombs. The H-Bomb continues to be research. They continue to research the properties of nuclear power for commercial use and the first nuclear reactors continue the nuclear reaction process. Bharat and its navy grow in size and the many aircraft carriers begin to be upgraded to house the new naval jet fighters.
  • Bengal continues its plans to get back on its feet. It continues to amp up its military and re-build industry. The colony in South Africa is expanded by 48825 km, and Bengal completely supports the invasion of Botswana, sending troops for the war.
  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. Industry booms as factories churn out helicopters in huge numbers. Afghanistan tests its missiles for the first time this year. They are, however, only a partial success and were not as useful as hoped. Some environmental scientists then propose that aircraft themselves should drop the chemical into the sky for a much wider and better coverage. This is used later on in the year and yields huge success.
  • Onguayal work on their army and continue industrializing. More of Onguayal's fleet continues to be upgraded and Onguayal expands 45,000 km. Onguayal continue to plan to invade Fjordlaand to consolidate their power on the continent and strengthen their power base. They will first send in converters to convert any of the population which are christsian, but their numbers in recent years have fallen as due to Onguayali and the Chinese puppet influence, making more of the population Hindu and Shinto (I think).
  • Naya Bharat and Hindustanfinally manage the states to merge governments with the colonies due to the continued pressure of both colonies. The colonies also ask Afghanistan for the key to having more rainwater, so the country can increase its agricultural production twenty-fold in the next two decades. The three colonies are also glad that some degree of autonomy is given to them, but they ask of more from the Bharati government.
  • Sindu focuses on amping up for yet another campaign and expands 110250 km in the process to the northernly larger states.
  • The Caribbean Federation works on its aircraft. They offers the central government fo the Federation to join the Sovereignity Defense League.

The Nuclear Furnace project continues, and the weapon is somewhat near completion. Empress Orvokki Komeiji decides to create her own manga, called Hakugyokurou, and is about two heroines, Yuyuko Saigyouji and Youmu Konpaku. Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola continues to fund the mining project and other construction and technology. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot.

Esbjörn Rydberg and Rydberg-kai also causes a problem in a small Swedish town, but soon some members of the Rydberg-kai are arrested and Esbjörn Rydberg flees to his hideout. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik more roads and motorway are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy bit more. Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola is annoyed by the Swedish protests, stating that the Autonomous Prefecture of Swēden was created for a reason. Never-the-less, she sends tanks and military to shut down the rebellions, and soon massacres happen in Kyujigöku and Mäyöhigä, and soon 5/4/1947 is remembered as the Swedish Protests of 1947, known as the Five Four Incident in Finland (is basically somewhat similar to the OTL Tiananmen Square protests of 1989).

Ano Aaltonen continues to spread heavy pro-government propaganda in Mystiää, continues to interpret the Juche idea, into account.

  • Imperial Confederation of Saigyō continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. More roads, motorways, railways, harbours are built and in the Region of Kōshi more Shinto shrines are also built. Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen improves the economy.

Some Kōshis volunteer to go to Finland and help put down the Swedish rebellions as well.
  • Democratic Republic of Käwäshiro heavily builds up military, continues industrialisation, building infrastructure. Premier Kyösti Kitano improves the economy, and secretly continues to send French to the special camps, and more are secretly killed. Lingxiu Kirsi-Marja Miyako has more weapons and other military stuff being built and more Viking ships, as well as regular military ships are made.

Emperor Alexi signs a new constitution, giving much more power to the welsh assembly, but the constitution has provisions for emergency powers granted to the emperor, allowing autocratic rule for a while, but at the end, all the actions must be accounted for in front of the Assembly. The Head of the Welsh Government is given the Commonwealth treaty and the Russian Commonwealth Mutual Defence Pact to sign to become a member of the Russian Commonwealth. The Welsh government is given the right to nominate their own Governor General for a period of 5 years. The Results for the Ukrainian referendums are held, and much of the States vote to separate.

The New maps are being drawn, and the Polish Government happily accepts its new members. The fourth stage beings: Setting up a government. The Ukrainians decide to name their Parliament the Verkhovnay Rada, to make it unicameral, and make their Capital Kiev. The Kiev City has "donated" the building where their "new Library" would have been built for the Rada (although many people guessed that the purpose was to house the parliament in the first place, as the contractors and the planners were largely pro-independence, and the building was vary easily converted). Russia builds more nukes.
  • Wales holds a large coronation ceremony for the new King despite threats on his life by ultranationalists, everything goes according to plan. Alexi is crowned High King and Protector of the Commonwealth. The General Assembly establishes the post of Governor General and signs the Commonwealth agreements (treaty and defense pact) but adds a clause that states "If the interests of The People of Wales no longer aline with that of Russia, the Commonwealth does reserve the right to leave said Commonwealth." This is a measure to ensure the maximum freedom for Wales whilst still being a voting member of the Duma. Wales states to the world that it is still independent and is ONLY pursuing this course because of Emperor Alexi being the only person of noble blood that wasn't killed during the Civil War. Wales still exercises its ability to conduct trade, establish treaties and declare war. Wales is still entirely independent. More nuclear bombs are built and the largest one in Welsh history the King Bomb was tested on a small island off Nouvelle Champagne. Work continues on Nuclear energy and the military- in effort to provide more jobs- begins a massive refit of all tanks, planes and ships, adding 12 new aircraft carriers over the next 6 years and increasing the standing army by 15%.

  • Istoias continues to modernize.
  • Israel continues to expand its military;
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces more Kusanagi grade nuclear bombs. Joint research with Vietnam for nuclear power generators continues too.

Development of rocket bombs continues too, and a prototype rocket is built. Professor Hei Ichizon of Kobe University comes up with the theory of holography while working to improve the resolution of his electron microscope. Mitsui's robotics department Toshiba invent the Transistor and begin using it in new computer designs. The Nipponese telephone company invent the mobile phone too, but its too big and expensive to be used practically; but the idea of using the technology to set up telephone boxes in remote places is looked into as it would save the company having to wire the many miles to the telephone box.
  • Chamoru amp up the military and a branch of the Chamorro pharmaceutical company Norratsu continues research into chemical weapons and biological weapons.

    • Australia states to the world that it did not violate any terms as it has not signed any Conference papers or anything of that kind. Australia once again states, that if people of their nation would be unhappy, they would either form a new one or join the existing one, but currently, the Australian people are happy with current borders and Australia sees no reason in starting another conflict about, like one of citizens said, "some maculature of some stupid conference which makes no sense and only infringes people's rights of freedom".

The army trains harder than ever, and amps up with tanks and infantry beginning to work together. The war over Botswana seems to have almost have been won. Losses begin to climb, however, as the Botwanans begin making many a last stands to keep hold of their precious country. The BBC continues to grow, and it becomes a unique form of a company, funded by the state but not state owned. The Times begins to spread as well, with the Australian colonies getting their own offices and same with Sindu. Tata's Air corps continue producing helicopters, and many troop transport helicopters are damaged over Botswana. It seems like helicopters need more armour. The "Delhi Project" focus on building more nuclear bombs. The H-Bomb continues to be researched.

The government, seeing the large Muslim population, begin designing plans to covert most of them. They are unsure of what to do but the idea of Apartheid begins to be thought up. It also seems like Arakan wants to break away, so a map is drawn up of the future of how the area will look by the end of the power transfer.
  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. Industry booms as factories churn out helicopters in huge numbers.

  • Naya Bharat and Hindustan begin to connect up roads with the two states which have recently joined the colonies in a union. The colonies receive the key to having more rainwater, and begin to finally test them on their own. The results are promising and it seems like the country will finally be able to increase its agricultural output in decades.
  • Sindu focuses on amping up for yet another campaign and expands 110250 km in the process to the northerly larger states, Chad mainly. The colony also sees a huge new wave of immigrants to take up work. It is thought that over 0.75 million people arrived into the colony this year.

Republic of Suwēden located in a slight darker purple, is a Finnish Vassal State established by new Shogun Eleonoora Anaberal

  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. The Nuclear Furnace project continues, being almost done. Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola begins the Ethnic cleansing policy; in which the Swedes are now forced to leave to Denmark, and it begins. Empress Orvokki Komeiji is really angered by the Shogun's actions and by the fifth month, she fires her. However, Toyotama Jaakkola refuses to step down and soon directs more military to shut down the rebellions. Soon Rin Kivimäki begins to pulls back most of the military away, as it is not needed and sees no point. Few days later after much pressure by the Empress and the Finnish government cabinet, Toyotama Jaakkola manages to flee to Käwäshiro. Soon, Eleonoora Anaberal (female, Finnish Paganist) is elected as Shogun and manages to end the bloody conflicts and rid of Toyotama Jaakkola's ruthless actions. Afterwards, Shogun Eleonoora Anaberal decides to make part of the Autonomous Prefecture of Swēden into a Finnish Vassal State, and soon the Republic of Swēden is formed with its capital at Märsta; while Kyujigöku is kept under direct Finnish control until the Swedes show no signs of rebelling again. The new Prime Minister of the vassal is Thorbjörn Bergström (male, secular). Meanwhile, the Anti-Swedish Sentiment in Finland is provoked, but is soon calmed by Empress Orvokki Komeiji. Though, the Gulf of Komachi continues to be guarded heavily to ensure that the Wonderlaand ships won't make it through. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot. Karoliina Aaltonen and some other Finnish and Swedish female artists releases less animation films this year too. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company, Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia Oy, Heidi Nyström's Volstiå continue to compete and expand to other places in the world. Päiviö Tsukahara and the Tsukahara-kai begins to go to upper northern Finland and causes a few problems there. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik more roads and motorway are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy bit more.
    • The Bharati Crown-Prince asks for the Empress's hand in marriage as he has fallen deeply in love with her and has got to know her better over the years.

He also asks her whether she would open up her country's borders to Bharati immigrants who might want to set up new lives in the country he has married into.
    • Empress Orvokki Komeiji says that Finland is open to most Asian immigrants, and is definaltley open for Bharatis, Nipponese, Vietnamese, Chinese, Koreans.. and asks to stay in New Delhi for a while.
    • (I don't think I comissioned a New Delhi, so its just Delhi right now, lol). Prince Ashok Gandhi agrees (yeah, I figured out a name for him) to the request. He also asks the Empress wheher both parliaments should be merged into one single assembly in a new capital which could be built in a custom location.
    • Empress Orvokki Komeiji says that the merging of both parliaments may not work, as Finland and Bharat are both far from each other. She recommends somehow going back and forth, and having two capitals, one in Finland and one in Bharat (she would stay with Ashok Gandhi of course).
    • And Prince Ashok Gandhi does not want the Empress to be away from her own people. He proposes a sea link to be established, so it would be quick to transport. As well as this, he states, air travel could also cut journey times by a few weeks.
    • Empress Orvokki Komeiji agrees in establishing a sea link, and the air travel.
  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military and improve infrastructure, and continues industrialisation. President Ano Aaltonen continues to spread heavy pro-government propaganda in Mystiää, continues to interpret the Juche idea, into account. He also has fortresses built near the border and begins to establish an demilitarised zone along-side the border.
  • Imperial Confederation of Saigyō continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. More roads, motorways, railways, harbours are built and in the Region of Kōshi more Shinto shrines are also built. Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen improves the economy.

Premier Jalmari Mäenpää continues to follow former Premier's actions by hireing more pirates and disguise Viking ships, and continues to cause disruption to any European ships in the Atlantic Ocean. Soon he also orders that if any Republic of Wonderlaand ships are found on Atlantic Ocean to also be taken down as well.
  • China continues work on rocketry. Dr. Lao Gyatso, a scientist in Beijing, proposes the idea of using rocketry to help boost transportation. While he is almost laughed out of town, some scientists believe he may be right. Gyatso's experiments begin. By the end of the year, over two dozen tests are conducted using monkeys in the rockets as test dummies. The initial runs are a flop. However, Gyatso is able to find conditions to where the monkey can survive (though the rocket lands in the ocean). Meanwhile, China builds more atomic weapons.
    • Bharat asks China if it would like to merge the rocketry projects. In return for the development of the rocket tech, China will receive H-Bomb blueprints, something which only Bharat has.

Austria increases Military, infrastructure, economy and tech.
  • Australia begins to recruit more men into the military in case of unjustified invasion of Eetoria.
  • Páránáguá declares war on Január Folyó, due to it declaring war on Niterő.However, Since most of the troops still are trying to claim land for Páránáguá (on this, they acquire 4000 sq km before retiring from the area), they take too long to mobilize.as a result, the Januárfolyáns attack the city of Páránáguá. This leads Szent Lörinc to declare war on Január Folyó, as well as seeing an opportunity to obtain an outlet to the Atlantic. However, their attack is successful. Soon after, the capital of Páránáguá is changed provisionally to Báurú. By November, Január Folyó surrenders, being divided between Szent Lörinc, which receives the city of Január Folyó, and the island of Márákádzsá, and Niterő, which receives some parts bordering Páránáguá and some territory on the former border.
  • Newfoundland expands 84,000 sq km.
  • The Welsh General Assembly bans LCD and MDMA, making it extremely difficult get hold of. The Assembly elects John Smith as Prime Minister and Major Fredrick Greenwall as Governor General if the Commonwealth. Smith sends aid to Sweden to help establish a job corps for the displaced ethnic minors forced out by Finland. The PM says that they will support the Swedish in their effort to be free from rule with a nation that shares almost no cultural background. The first Research Nuclear Powerplant is formed in Wales and right now produces power for several small villages and a Research Centre in Cornwall. Wales states that it war with Austia is not necessary, stating that the Sovereignty Defense League members (including Wales) will protect Austria against invasion. Propaganda is still being (secretly) sent to the Bretons in Brittany. The Bretons are becoming even more vocal about their independence stating that they wish to be free from French rule.
    • Empress Orvokki Komeiji mentions that Finland was mostly under Swedish rule throughout history and during the Swedish rule over Finland, the Finns had a hard time with it and was mostly mistreated, and also that Sweden was an aggressive nation, wanting to conquer most of Germany, had lots of tensions with Russia, and even had conquered England at one point. It's now all over and she, as well as most of the Finns and others, are just trying to preserve peace in Scandinavia so that tensions and wars will never happen again. She also says that she has kicked out the old Shogun and that everything is resolved now. She promises no harm to the Swedes, and is also against discrimination and stuff like that of any kind.
    • Wales apologizes we were not meaning to offend Finland, which is a Welsh ally. We were merely trying to support a new nation. A new nation cannot be treated in the same way that an older one has. I understand that throughout Finnish history a brutal Sweden harmed your people. I am merely supporting the right for a Peaceful Sweden to be born. The Commonwealth of Wales once again states that Finland is an ally and we do not betray an ally.
    • Empress Orvokki Komeiji supports on establishing a Peaceful Sweden; and hopes that soon peace can be achieved in Scandinavia and everyone can live their joyful, happy lives again without worry.
    • The Welsh ask the Democratic Republic of Käwäshiro to not attack Welsh Passenger or shipping fleets, sighting their longstanding alliance with several major European Powers and stating that an attack on any passenger ships WILL be seen as an act of war.

He states that his people have suffered enough and our economy cannot stabilize with constant attacks on shipping.
    • Premier Jalmari Mäenpää of Käwäshiro tells Wales to kindly go home without worries, and orders for the Vikings to ignore the Welsh, Danish, Russian ships and not attack them no more. He closes his borders completely to prevent any more people from entering. A day later, Lingxiu Kirsi-Marja Miyako apologises for the Premiers behaviour as he has a short temper, and sends a few ships to Wales to repay them.
    • Andrew, I believe it will be of interest to you that the Swedes are being sent to Denmark, one nations which completely like them in terms of culture and ethnicity.
    • Denmark tells Wales, now a longtime ally, that, the notion of a peaceful Sweden is rather impossible and, should one be established, Denmark cannot afford to lose any part of Sweden whatsoever, because Sweden is the last part of land that Denmark has any hold one besides Denmark itself.
    • Wales understands Denmark's concerns and will work to ensure the safety and security of the Danish people. Denmark is a great-and one- of the oldest allies to Wales, we will support them in any way.
  • Denmark tells any nation under the threat of Eetoria and Ngainkeha (did I spell that right?) that Denmark will help if it sees fit. If not, Denmark will not get involved. Danish scientists become interested in rocket science and the idea of rocket power, and it "takes flight," so to speak.
    • No, The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha is the correct spelling. Just copy and paste in the future my friend.
    • It's ok, I'll remember it now. Excellent memory here.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces more Kusanagi grade nuclear bombs. Joint research with Vietnam for nuclear power generators continues too. The nuclear power plant in north Kamochatoka is a success and another plant is built in the south of Kamochatoka prefecture too; making Kamochatoka almost entirely powered by nuclear power. The first Nipponese ballistic missile the V1 is completed too, and a few V1 launch bases are built across the Nipponese empire as a defensive precaution. Nippon also calls for Austria and Bharat to work out a way of compensating the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha for breaching the territorial claims of the Commonwealth. LSD and MDMA also begin to be regulated and controlled by the government to stop people from harming themselves by using the drugs. Mitsubishi's textile division invents velcro and begins using it as an alternative to shoe laces. The Tadagani Corporation invent cake mix as a quick way to cook up cakes rather than making them from scratch. The Furukawa zaibatsu release the Wurlitzer jukebox as a way for public buildings to decide themselves which music they want playing, and smaller jukeboxes or record players are sold to the general public so they too can listen to records at home. The record industry in Nippon becomes very popular as people can listen to their favourite songs over and over again!
  • Chamoru amp up the military and a branch of the Chamorro pharmaceutical company Norratsu continues research into chemical weapons and biological weapons. Sales of LSD and MDMA fall dramatically after Wales bans the drug, so to make up for lost sales Norratsu begins selling LSD and MDMA in the Americas.
  • Sunda amps up the military and the International Court of human rights begins investigating the treatment of the Swedes by Finland. A Sundanese high school graduate becomes the youngest millionaire in Sunda after he invents the Frisbee and setting up a business to manufacture and sell Frisbees: Frisbee Corp.
    • Shogun Eleonoora Anaberal says that Shogun Toyotama Jaakkola had ordered most of the killing and everything. She and most of the Finnish government had helped to stop it completely.
    • Denmark tells Sunda on Finland's behalf that no Swedes are being harmed currently and all wishing to leave Finland are being sent to Denmark.
    • The International Court of human rights is pleased that the killing has stopped, but the former Shogun of Finland Toyotama Jaakkola needs to be put on trail to be punished for her crimes against humanity.
    • Why would they be called Frisbees? I doubt the Frisbie Pie Company is active in Sunda Wouldn't the name be something in the native language of Sunda? Quite honestly, all of these modern-day English brand names being made by non-English nations are sort of implausible.
    • Sorry, its my own laziness not re-naming them. CBA learning Javanese. The names are not intentionally English, I'm just being lazy. I'll try come up with non-English names in the future.
  • The military forces are amped up in the USA, Songone and Muisica as the modernization programme continues, focusing mostly on the navy and air forces of the USA. The Federation of the Americas nations continue to become more closely tied economically, and more powers are given to the federation parliament; with the federation parliament pushing for the entire federation of the Americas to join up as a single state like the Caribbean Federation did. While supporting the federation of the Americas, while allied with Käwäshiro, ask Käwäshiro to stop raiding shipping in the Atlantic or risk causing a war.
  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha amp up their military and politicians in the Commonwealth continue to call for international condemnation of Austria, Australia and Bharat, as they violate the terms of the Constantinople Conference. They specifically ask for negotiations with Bharat, as they were part of the Constantinople Conference and themselves and their associated territories (Australia) are breaching the Commonwealth's territorial claims. Austria on the other land just set up a colony in land claimed by the Commonwealth, as just ignored the Commonwealth's claims to the land. The Commonwealth is amazed at how the international community seems to think the Commonwealth is at fault, when it is just trying to get back the land which was stolen from them.
    • Bharat is ready to negotiate as they did sign the Constantinople Conference. However, they do state they would like reparations as they will have to move people who willingly arrived in the area even though the Bharatis advised them not to.
    • Wales declares neutrality in this situation and neither supports nor condemns Eotoria and Ngainkeha's actions. Wales states that Austria is an ally, and we are certain that Austria meant no harm. Wales suggests the establishment of a new conference called the Copenhagen conference, to further investigate these acts and to establish new guidelines for expansion in the 20th century.
    • The Commonwealth welcomes Bharat's new stance, but doesn't think the settlers who went settling in Commonwealth territory should be compensated as they were warned and they are in the wrong. The Commonwealth is also a bit kceptical of Wales thinking that is was an accident that Austria would do something like this, and doesn't think a new conference is needed as there has already been one dividing up OTL Australia.
  • The Republic of Wonderlaand amps up its military and pledges support to the Swedish revolutionaries in Sweden, who wish to see the fatherland of Sweden re-established. They offer Wales an alliance, in an effort to free their Swedish brethren. Wonderlaand condemn the Finish actions towards the Swedes and also demand that the Democratic Republic of Käwäshiro stop attacking their boats or else Wonderlaand will see it as a declaration of war. Wonderlaand asks to join the Sovereignty Defence League too, hoping that membership in the league will help bring the rest of the international community to their side to free the Swedes from oppressive Finland and to stop Käwäshiro from profiting on privateering on Atlantic shipping.
    • Shogun Eleonoora Anaberal says that everything is dealt with and that Toyotama Jaakkola was the one that ordered the massacres. She also mentions that the Swedes will not be harmed no more. She also wants to maintain peace in Scandinavia and wants no trouble and kindly tells them to stop creating tensions and that every will be treated equity and promises.
    • Premier Jalmari Mäenpää tells Wonderlaand to stop liberating the evil Swedish monsters as their brutal rule is over. He refuses to stop attacking their ships, and closes down all borders to prevent stuff from happening. Lingxiu Kirsi-Marja Miyako also condemns Wonderlaand for their aggressive actions and mentions to them that all they plan to have Sweden come back so the Swedes can rule all over again and have more Northern Wars with Russia, abuse Danes, Finns, and other non-Scandinavians and rebuild their evil empire again. (Note: Don't take offence to this personally. Sorry if it seems very ruthless, they just are angry and stuff, is all).
    • Wonderlaand is declared a national enemy by Denmark. Finland is not being oppressive, and Sweden being re-established will result in the doom of Europe and the collapse of the world's nations into complete chaos and anarchy.
    • Wales would like to see the Swedish protected, as Denmark as already suggested. Denmark is a long term ally and we must insist that if a Swedish state is formed it must remain small and under careful supervision. This new Sweden would remain free, but owe their safety to the rest of Scandinavia, However, Wales stands by whatever decision is reached on by Finland and Denmark. The Welsh regretfully deny the offer of alliance but state that if an agreement can be reached with Denmark, our stance may change.
    • Wonderlaand is glad for Finland reconciling for the genocide, but thinks the Swedish should be granted their own state to rule themselves as they have done throughout most of history. Wonderlaand wants to know how re-creating the Swedish state will destroy the world. The new Swedish state will not be evil, it won't do any of this crazy stuff you claim will happen (Note: guys its going to be jointly ruled by Finland, Denmark andWonderlaand. Its not gonna go all power crazy as we're the ones controlling it.) Wonderlaand, however, is especially annoyed by Premier Jalmari Mäenpää's words as they are ones aggressively attacking shipping in the Atlantic, whereas Wonderlaand just want self rule & determination for Sweden. Wonderlaand call on the international community to do something about the rogue state of the Democratic Republic of Käwäshiro and its looney dictator Jalmari Mäenpää.
  • Italy grants New Maya and Calora independence from Italian rule, as the Italians think that the two nations have become modern enough to rule themselves. Calora asks for alliances with the Hungarian Colony to the south and Neue Brandenburg to the north.

Before long, they reieve word from Bharat that Bengal would again like Bharat to invade the countries for its colonies, to which Bharat agrees as it needs to ease the population problem ongoing in its territories. The army trains harder than ever, and amps up with tanks and infantry beginning to continuing together. Troops soon roll over after additional training and invade all three states in one go. It is hoped the war will be quick and swift. The BBC continues to grow, and begins to cover the war scene, documenting the war scene with detail. The Times continues to spread, and it seems like Bengal might have an office of the newspaper opening as well. Tata's Air corps continue producing helicopters, and many troop transport helicopters are repaired to serve over the three African states, provided with more armour. The "Delhi Project" focus on building more nuclear bombs. The H-Bomb continues to be researched, and many break-throughs are made.

Onguayal continue to plan to invade Fjordlaand to consolidate their power on the continent and strengthen their power base. They continue to send converters, and even though it is slow progress, they seem to be converting enough to weaken the country's resolve.
  • Naya Bharat and Hindustan continue to connect up roads with the two states which have recently joined the colonies in a union. The colonies begin using the chemicals to increase rainwater, and in the rainy season, it brought over ten times more water onto the soil, enabling desert life to boom and giving the chance for farmers to extend their fields.
  • Sindu focuses on amping up for yet another campaign and expands 110250 km in the process to the northerly larger states, Chad mainly. The colony continues to see a wave of immigrants and the number stays at 0.75 million entering in a year.
  • Russian research into the H-bomb continues, and the first "sloika" design for a fusion bomb is theorized. Izhmash's top developer, Kalashnikov, improves the design of the MP44 and makes the first true Russian assault rifle, the AK-48, and shows it off by leaving one in sand, one in dirt, and one in mud for half a year, and then having them fire an entire 40 round mag with no problem at all. Kalashnikov, however, was probably thinking more about Russian pride, because a nearly identical rifle had been reverse-engineered by another nation, and he did not want to shame himself about not coming up with the idea. The Russian military orders it be redistributed throughout the military as common armorment, and decides to use ammunition as a weapon, and give each soldier many magazines. The Vserossiyskaya Novostnaya set'(All-Russias News Network), or VNS, launches its first television news broadcasts. Some Breakthroughs are made to make TVs more affordable to the people. Every major university in Russia now has an electron microscope, and a prototype computer room. Russian scientists are thinking of a way of using the RGB color schematic developed by Russia in the 1890s in future television designs, but the technology is not there yet ...
    • Wales may be able to help, we have extensive knowledge in electronics (we did invent the Radio and Radar, after all)

  • Chamoru amp up the military and a branch of the Chamorro pharmaceutical company Norratsu continues research into chemical weapons and biological weapons. Sales of LSD & MDMA continue to grow very quickly in the Americas, and research into cannabis continue. The Chamorro kurumá company Ka-oh release a new model car with a brand new feature: power steering.
  • The Nipponese Dominion of Gosobudan and Shuujin following a referendum is renamed "the Nipponese Dominion of Shuubudan". The nation also changes its government structure a bit too, with the opening of the regional diets for Gosobudan and Shuujin. The national diet of Shuubudan, however, remains the top parliament in the nation too. Otherwise Shuubudan continues to amp up the military.
  • Sunda amps up the military and the International Court of human rights continues to call for the former Shogun of Finland Toyotama Jaakkola to be put on trail for her crimes against the Swedes.
  • The military forces are amped up in the USA, Songone and Muisica as the modernization programme continues, focusing mostly on the navy and air forces of the USA.

  • The Republic of Wonderlaand amps up its military and calls on Denmark to give Sweden full independence. Swedish independence organisations continue to be funded, focusing on the Swedish separatist political parties. Wonderlaand recognize that the Swedes are happier that they are now part of Denmark rather than Finland, but they continue to support the idea of a new Swedish state, as the Swedish people have a right to self-determination. The Swedish state which a mere 61 years ago was a major global power ruling over vast territories across the world, whereas now are part of Denmark. Swedish nationalism is perfectly justified and the Danes should be the bigger man and let Sweden go, as Denmark should know how important independence is to a nation's people.
    • First of all, ye increasingly ignorant Wonderlaand, there are no independence organizations whatsoever. There is a small one in Stockholm called the Swedish Band of Brothers, but they just want the country to be called Sweden and the capital relocated to Stockholm. Again, there are no separatist movements in all of Denmark, save the planned Conservative coup which was revealed the the leaders executed. Why would the Swedish people agree to something they don't want or need? If they got independence, they would several debts to pay off, which Denmark is currently handling. They would have to start anew and would not be a global superpower anymore. They would face economic crisis, political crises, and not to mention the task of defending itself against hungry enemies like Asian powers and anyone wanting revenge on the old Sweden. Swedish nationalism, which does not exist, is not justified at all. Their people do not want independence, so all that you are saying is "complete trash and lies about the people of Sweden," in the words of a Swedish youth.
    • Denmark could put a price on liberty and freedom? In an non-independent nation there shall always be some degree of separatists, and Wonderlaand is pro-Sweden so shall continue to support and nurture Swedish independence in an attempt to re-create the once great nation. Wonderlaand know Sweden probably won't be as powerful as it used to be and they know the running will be tough, but liberty & freedom is definitely worth it. Sweden will go the way of Norway and eventually break away from Denmark, the Swedish people are now re-united and their desire for independence can only grow.
  • Italy continues to have great economic developments, while conservationism and historical preservationism does exist. The Italian government agrees with the Sundanese International Court of Human Rights on the subject of Toyotama Jaakkola.
    • The International court of human rights thanks Italy, and hopefully Toyotama Jaakkola shall be brought to justice. (NOTE: The ICHR isn't Sundanese, it's an international body which just so happened to be built in Sunda. No one else looked like they were going to do something like this so I just did it in Sunda).

The New Mayans propose that all the Indonesian nations form some sort of alliance group, like how the Europeans formed their European Council.
    • Foreign Minister Utsuho Niemelä of the Imperial Confederation of Saigyō agrees to the proposal of forming some kind of an alliance group.
    • There is already the Asian Council which was set up in 1929 to counter the European council. Did New Maya not join it?
  • Istoias continues to modernize. They build many roads, and construct many ships. The large Italian car companies all spread to Istoias, but the Istoiasians have their own boating companies, as well as several airline companies. The Istoiasians begins to use many televisions as well. Their census reveals that they are 47% European (15% Italian, 4% Hungarian, 10% German, 11% Swedish, 6% Other), 38% Malasgay, and 15% East African (Ethiopian). The religion of Istoias is 71% Schmittist, 19% Native religions 9% Irreligious, and 3% other.

The Russians demand that is seace at once because it was Russian territory to begin with). Sikorsky, after many years of research comes out with the first jet airliner, a first jet bomber, a jetfighter, the Sik-19(like the MiG-19). This new technology is taken seriously, and Sikorsky lands a new government contract to better improve their designs. The Rssian Rocketry program is making serious progress with the addition of Korolev to the team, they expect to launch a "sputnik" into near-earth orbit by the year 1957 and start testing dogs and how they can be affected by space. and the first successful launch of a theatre ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead is made, and tested in the Kazakh deserts. The first Ukrainian Rada begins session, and the Russian nuclear program explodes two fusion bombs of two different designs, the Sloika design, named Sloika-1 yields 400 kt, and the "Etapa"(teller-ullam) design H-bomb yields much more devastation ... 5 MT. The russians decide to go with the later for most bombs, and buildup more Etapas to replace the old fission bombs.
    • Forgive me, but in an earlier post Wales developed the first jet fighter called the R-10 Cougar. So it is a little insulting that you say Russia developed one after our post.
    • Sorry ... Didn't catch that. I'll remove the "first"
    • Actually Nippon developed the first jet engine, then Bharat developed its own jet engine followed by aircraft. So I am sorry but Bharat and Nippon beat Wales and Russia!

However, the Chinese Indian territory is divided by religion: Nepal, whose citizens follow a mixture of Buddhist and Hindu religious ideas, breaks away from Mughalistan, which is mostly Muslim (~80%) with Buddhist and Hindu minorities. The Mughals are strong in their religion, and aren't going to be converted.

  • The Danish Navy captures the Former Finnish Shogun in Finnish Svalbard. She is sent to Sunda to be tried at the ICHR. Meanwhile, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is created to set Denmark into space high above. A magazine called "Man's Domination of Space" begins, and every month a man named Wernher von Braun details manned flight into space, reaching the Moon, Mars, and slowly the rest of the Solar System. By December it is a big hit nationwide and the NASA continues to draw information and ideas from it. Commercial flight in Denmark begins to spread rapidly, with Denmark Flyers and Global Airlines quickly becoming the most ridden in Denmark. A successful flight from Copenhagen to the North Pole occurs, with Mr. Werner von Braun being the pilot himself. Soon the NASA recruits him for the organization and extremely secretive activity begins. von Braun also begins to write about high speed rail travel and speaks of "bullet trains that go as fast as seven trains of today," and a plane that could break the sound barrier. International Rail, Denmark's greatest rail corporation which operates in Finland, Germany, Denmark, and France offers to pay von Braun if he would be willing to aid them to develop the trains he imagines. Initially he refuses, but in the end he agrees with half the original payment. The idea of corporate personhood is voided in Denmark, placing more liability with the owners and heads of corporations for accidents. King Haakon is assassinated by a terrorist whose homeland is Musica. However, Denmark states that no action will be taken upon Musica. His son, Haakon, becomes the new king and is seeking a Protestant royal wife.

Work begins to get green, orange, and violet on television, which will then allow brown and every other color to be shown. The polio vaccine is developed by scientists in Stockholm. A film entitled Galaxy is released and it soon becomes very popular. It details a world where Denmark, Russia, and Wales defeated the Asians in the Cold War. von Braun's ideas worked very well and bullet trains span the globe. His ideas for space worked as well, with a colonization race beginning to capture land around the Solar System. von Braun's grandson, Ludwig von Braun, develops the hyperdrive, allowing man to leave the Solar System. Bound for Alpha Centuari A, a group of cosmonauts begin a long journey there. In the box office, the film makes what is equivalent to present-day OTL $35,693,412. Three men named Oscar, Frederick, and Christian publish their research on "DNA" and its double helix structure.

The manga is a huge success and an anime is made of the series, also achieving great success. However, the more conservative people in Shuubudan try to get it banned for encouraging unethical behaviour and copycat killers, but it isn't banned as the national diet see this to be the parent's duty to regulate what they watch or read, and adults should be allowed to watch or read whatever they want, apart from illegal material such as child pornography.
  • Sunda amps up the military and the International Court of human rights continues to call for the former Shogun of Finland Toyotama Jaakkola to be put on trail for her crimes against the Swedes.

The Lord of the Rings saga becomes a best-seller.
  • The Republic of Wonderlaand amps up its military and continues to support the cause of Swedish independence as Swedish separatist political parties continue to be funded. Wonderlaand continue to stir up feelings of pan-Swedish nationalism in the country, Sweden and in Fjordlaand too. Tired of all the anti-Swedish propaganda novels circulating in Europe, Wonderlaand author Albert Ingersson publishes a book about the plight of the Swedish people across history, satirised in the setting of a farm. The Wonderlaand doesn't support the book as they see themselves to be above petty name calling and propaganda, a tool very popular with the Swedish hating fascists.
  • How the hell are you going to get to Sweden? Denmark blockaded its own coasts, has the air force in the sky above it. No earthly way of getting in without getting passage rights from the navy.
  • ​Bharat and its army trains harder than ever, and amps up with tanks and infantry continuing to work together. Bharat, seeing no other alternative, rolls into Nepal and Mughalistan to incorporate them into Bharat (like what OTL India did after independence with Kashmir and Hydrabad). Mughalistan will be give near-autonomous status if successfully incorporated. The BBC continues to grow, and War of the Worlds! becomes even more popular. Bollywood makes many films, and Mera Bharat becomes the biggest date in Bharat til' date. Another few movies are made, including one in which Sweden survives and irons out its mistakes, called Sverige: En nordisk dröm (Sweden: A Nordic Dream). In the movie, all the Nordic countries become closer and become a union of countries. It also shows how the Swedes would manage to re-establish the English-German Union and how Sweden would team up with Asian countries to combat evil European countries. The movie, unsurprisingly, become a huge hit in Wonderlaand, and a good hit in Bharat. There is also another movie, named 2063: Doomsday, in which an accident leads to the west and east both nuking each other. It shows humanity's attempts to rebuild and how it would lead to a more sensible planet (its kinda like the background for Star Trek, even though its a rip-off the DD TL). The Times continues to spread, and expands services. Tata's Air corps continue producing helicopters, and many are provided with more armour. The "Delhi Project" focus on building more nuclear bombs and its stock has increase greatly. More H-Bomb prototypes are tested successfully, and they enter production. They continue to research the properties of nuclear power for commercial use. Research into a new type of fighter-jet continues and a small jet manages to break the sound-barrier. It is hailed as a huge success and allows modern aircraft designers to look into the supersonic factor. A theory about super-cruise is also developed. More normal jet fighters are produced and an upgraded design continues to be tested as a prototype. B.O.A.C also rolls out a new commercial aircraft, the B-707, which is a jet-engined commercial aircraft. Manga and Anime, due to Crown-Prince Ashok's relation with Finland, take hold in the country and begin to grow in popularity.
  • Bengal's Apartheid continues to be set up. To keep control, the military is amped up. The colony in South Africa is expanded by 48800 km in every direction. Amir Khan continues to actively protest the apartheid system, and he begins rallying up a large crowd behind him in protest.
  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. Hectares of desert are converted into farmland as the rains increase exponentially due to the chemicals.

  • Onguayal work on their army and continue industrializing. More of Onguayal's fleet continues to be upgraded and Onguayal expands 45,000 km. Onguayal continue to plan to invade Fjordlaand to consolidate their power on the continent and strengthen their power base. They continue to send converters, and even though it is slow progress, they seem to be converting enough to weaken the country's resolve. They built up a huge amount of troops on the country's border, getting ready to invade it in one swift movement.
  • Naya Bharat and Hindustan continue to connect up roads with the two states which have recently joined the colonies in a union. The colonies continue using the chemicals to increase rainwater, and many people begin to move inland. Better water-saving techniques are also applied to increase the water availability. The colonies begin to ask for Greater Autonomy and begin to formulate plans of becoming a Federation.
  • Sindu expands 110250 km south and eastward. The colony continues to see a wave of immigrants and the war on Sara finishes successfully. Around a million people immigrate to the country this year.
  • More work on rocketry continues in China. Another monkey, Serta, is sent into near-Earth orbit. The monkey not only beats the time set by Meelo, but survives the impact into the South China Sea (at an area predicted by astronomers). Serta survives the crash with a concussion and some broken bones. Work on making re-entry less dangerous continues.
  • Dongfang expands by 17,000 sq km to the east in the Washington/Oregon area.

Shogun Eleonoora Anaberal continues to to improve the economy. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot. Television's are introduced in Finland, though is not easy the first time, but the Finns get used to it after seven months. Animation films and Anime are continued to be made too. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company and Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia Oy continue to compete and expand to other places in the world. Toshiaki Maijala continues his tour in Finland, and soon moves into Eesti, to inroduce the Regē (レゲエ) music there. Meanwhile Hemminki Fukuzawa makes a comedic film, called The Missing Boot poking fun at the Italians (particulariy Naples); it is about if the land of Naples (aka the area that makes the shoe) if it was sunken, and tells about how radical Venice would control Northern Italy and all the Popes would have no feet due to no Naples; and that any North American colony founded by Venice that all towns and cities they establish become exactly like Venice. A film by Bertta Suzuki is released, named The Northern Capital and is about three ladys who tour a Northern Capital and find it filled with magic and few other stuff, and they explore it. The Finrando Hōsō Kyōkai is soon broadcast on television by Sumiko Mikkola. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik more roads and motorway are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy bit more.
  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military and improve infrastructure, and continues industrialisation.

More roads, motorways, railways, harbours are built and in the Region of Kōshi more Shinto shrines are also built. Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen improves the economy. New animation films continue to be showed in the Safaia Elokuva theatre and more are created. 59% of the Kōshis hate the Bhārati film Sverige: En nordisk dröm and call it blatant lies, while the rest of the Kōshis rate it excellent and liked it. Jorma Aimoto create and release yet another film, this time making fun at Italy and former Spain and is a comedic sarcastic, and the film's called Sombrero Pizza Pie, and this film also features Alice Margatroid and Kazan Khanate, which both somehow became converted to Confucianism. This film is only shown in the Region of Kōshi for safety reasons.
  • Democratic Republic of Käwäshiro heavily builds up military, continues industrialisation, building infrastructure. President Janika Erkkilä has more military equipment built, and improves the economy. Premier Mauno Miyako begins to improve the road system a bit. President Janika Erkkilä also mentions to Sunda Bounty hunters to have her nation checked, as she suspects that the lady their looking for may be here. Meanwhile, Toyotama Jaakkola gathers more eyes from the few more people she killed and flees back into the Amazon rain forest and hides out again. She then sits in her house still wearing her 'third eye' and waits out for a while. Soon though by the 5th month, she begins to remember her past before the 1947 incident, mainly the good times she had with her close friend Empress Sasakia; proceeds to soon look at herself in the mirror and seeing that she is covered in blood and all; then begins to cry at how she somehow turned into a cold, ruthless killer; cries for a week; and soon decides to stop her criminal acts; by the 6th month, she wishes that she could live a good life and would no longer kill or harm another person again and wants to be helpful, but thinks the Police and hunters would find it actually hard to believe that she has final agreed to stop her criminal acts and will still gets sentenced anyway, but still plans to try to tell them her feelings and stuff about it and is willing to deeply apologise and all. By the 9th month, she walks out of her house in the Amazon Rain Forest, still wearing the 'third eye'. Soon she sees what seem to be a few bounty hunters; and knowing it's the last time she's ever going to be walking outside, she then cries again and peacefully surrenders.
  • Following up on the success of the first harddisk in Nippon, Orange Industries releases a compact computer unit to be used in offices. (The uit is still quite large by modern standards) The unit named "Mandarin" carries with it the latest Orange technologies and includes (with permission from Nippon-half of all proceeds go to Nippon) the Nipponese hard drive. The unit is sold for 3,000,999 pounds and is immediately purchased by the government. Sean Penn, famous Cornish actor declares is contract with DreamTheatre to make the first Fleming movie- Casino Royale- in 1956. CBC releases a new show called Stuck With My Sister a sitcom about a Russian spy who must navigate the ridiculously funny word of Roshiro while watching after his sister, and it begins to gain some popularity in Russia and Wales. The Welsh military is upgraded to 15 aircraft carriers and planty of new jet fighters. The Thousand Suns project meets another success by allowing pure fusion for .40 milliseconds vs the previous .20. Nuclear Powerplants go up all over the country. New Wales votes to join The Commonwealth as a provisional member that will remain autonomous while relying on Wales for security and must follow what Wales says. Plans begin to establish a Bridge between Cornwall and Britanny, although experts believe it may be some time before that can be done. Rocket research continues and the PM hopes to have the Galaxy I satellite in orbit by 1959. T.Vs become cheaper and the Ministry of Space Exploration begins its own channel dedicated to Space called The Universe.
    • Nippon didn't invent the computer hard-disk, a company called Toshiba did, who are part of the Mitsui conglomerate. There is no way they would sell their brand new hard-disk technology to a rival company.
  • The Vietnamese continues their war against Empire of the Lakes. The Kenians expand their territory westwards, and continue expanding their industry into their newly acquired territories in Bale.
  • The New Lithuanians continue expanding their industry. The New Lithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 238*50 sq km.

More powerful rockets are produced under the guidance of Korolev. The Russians build the largest hydroelectric dam in Siberia, and buld their first nuclear powerplant. (Did I already separate the OVVR into the MAR (Spy ... or was it AMR) and the ISB???) The Russians build more jet fighters, and more strategic bombers. The Russians test more H-bombs. Science fiction shows are becoming more popular in Russia, and Stuck with my sister gains some popularity, especially with ex-OVVR. Russian filmmakers release a television series entitled "Trapped with the forgotten", telling of an Air Force pilot in Novorossiya who was shot down during a war and was forced to crash-land in tribal territory (black on the map). Although he was able to pinpoint his location, he is over one thousand km away from any civilization, and the closest he can get to will likely take him prisoner. He is forced to survive with the Help of the Natives, who were forgotten by modern nations. While he tries to get home to Alexandria, he develops a connection to the tribe overtime, while he tries to teach them his ways. This becomes very popular with some Russian people, and it prompts exploration into the Unexplored areas in America. Sikorsky releases newer jet models, and begins a large project to make a fast, effective twin-engine that can better withstand Russian winter. In Russia, more and more TV stations are set up. The first Colour TVs are introduced in Russia by an enigmatic corporation called telecorp, who's base of operations are deep inside Siberia. Many expect that they build their televisions on the basis of corporate espionage and started with the release of RGB televisions. These televisions, however, are very expensive, but can play color.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces the new Kusanagi V3 grade nuclear bombs, and development of the H-bomb concludes as the Ennetsu grade nuclear bomb is created, Nippon's first h-bomb. Joint research with Vietnam for nuclear power generators continues too. Nippon's rocket programme continues as more powerful rockets are built, and more objects are fired into space as part of the space programme. Anime & manga continue to gain popularity in Nippon, with the hottest new manga this year being Desert Punk, its set in the future following a nuclear war where Nippon has been reduced to desert and focuses on the adventures of a wandering mercenary named Kanta Mizuno, nicknamed Desert Punk (Sunabōzu). Optic fiber invented by the Furukawa zaibatsu, the Satsuma corporation invents & releases correction fluid and the Toyota zaibatsu invents the hovercraft. The Toshiba are also annoyed that Orange Industries have violated Toshiba's patents in creating their Mandarin computer and sues them for millions of yen, and depends a cut of the profits made by Orange as they are profiteering from steeling Toshiba's inventions. Similarly the Sumitomo Group is annoyed with telecorp and takes them to court in a million yen lawsuit for violating Sumitomo's patents on their colour televisions. As more foreign businesses seem to be copying the products of the zaibatsu corporations of Nippon, the Zaibatsu file more lawsuits to protect their products. However, a long term solution is sort and the zaibatsu businesses greatly expand their global operations to dominate the foreign markets to stop other would be copycat businesses from gaining any significant market share, and then suing the ones which do for breaching copyright and the patents filed by the zaibatsu companies. Then after the competing firms loose lots of money from the lawsuits, the zaibatsu companies then buy out the rival firms who don't have enough money to stop them from being bought out.
  • Orange did not steal - we ASKED PERMISSION - the Mandarin isn't even officially made it is a proposal announced by Orange in which the government invested in. If you do not wish us to use the Toshiba HDD then we will make our own. It is that simple. We will not entertain your lawsuit.
  • Chamoru amp up the military and a branch of the Chamorro pharmaceutical company Norratsu continues research into chemical weapons and biological weapons. Norratsu also start selling cannabis on a scale similar to that of their LSD and MDMA sales.
  • The Nipponese Dominion of Shuubudan amp up their military and Moogle fields, a Shuubudan farming company, begins farming cannabis to be sold to Norratsu and also be used in textiles.
  • Sunda amps up the military and the International Court of human rights thanks President Janika Erkkilä for helping capture the former Shogun of Finland Toyotama Jaakkola. Her trail begins for her crimes against the Swedes.
    • Any preferences on how she is to be punished? I'm thinking life imprisonment or death, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter Kogasa ~Von)
    • I'd say life imprisonment. Her guilt, while not enough to avoid punishment, is enough to avoid the death penalty in my mind.
    • She'd probably be let off of the death penalty by reason of insanity.
    • Its been decided she is to be exiled to St. Helena in the Atlantic.
  • The military forces are amped up in the USA, Songone and Muisica as the modernization programme continues, focusing mostly on the navy and air forces of the USA. The Federation of the Americas nations continue to become more closely tied economically, and more powers are given to the federation parliament; with the federation parliament pushing for the entire federation of the Americas to join up as a single state like the Caribbean Federation did. The federation of the Americas member states continue to be surveyed to find out whether they would like to join up as a single superstate federation. The USA and Muisca vote for the superstate federation to be created.
  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha amp up their military and seeing how the border dispute with Bharat has been concluded, the Commonwealth approach Austria to try to solve the problem of Austria infringing on the territorial claims of the Commonwealth.
  • The Republic of Wonderlaand amps up its military and continues to support the cause of Swedish independence as Swedish separatist political parties continue to be funded. Wonderlaand continue to stir up feelings of pan-Swedish nationalism in the country, Sweden and in Fjordlaand too. The Danish anti-Swedish propaganda begin to be used to prove that Denmark hate the Swedes and wishes to make Sweden subordinate to Denmark in order to exploit the Swedish people, land and resources. Wonderlaand also use the recent Danish senate vote as more proof of the Danish hating on the Swedes, as they wish to stamp out the dreams of Swedish independence by destroying a nation whose only "crime" was funding political parties. As the situation becomes more tense, Wonderlaand realize they have to find new more cunning ways to protect and save the Swedish people from the Danes, so funding starts being sent to Swedish separatist parties via a multitude of financial institutions, smuggling stuff into Sweden via Norway, and using foreign ships to transport things to Sweden. Wonderlaand's military also offers a contract to Chamorro pharmaceutical company Norratsu to create, manufacture and sell chemical and biological weapons to Wonderlaand; this is done mostly to give Wonderlaand weapons with a similar magnitude to Denmark's nuclear weapons as Wonderlaand don't currently possess weapons of mass destruction unlike the Danish imperialists.
    • What on earth are you talking about? Those were Conservatives, not Swedes. The anti-Swedes, who really hate them, lost upwards from 30 seats nationwide and the Liberals gained most of them. And for the umpteenth time, there are NO SEPARATISTS AT ALL.
    • You've got the nation on lock down, you spread anti-Swedish propaganda and Wonderlaand has sent millions of Krona to help fund the Swedish independence movement. How can there not be any separatists in Sweden?
    • First and foremost, that was the Koshi side of Saigyo. All I said is that Danish filmmakers approved of the idea and translated those films into Danish. We're on lock down because of all our stuff like rocket research, train research, and nuclear research. There were no separatists in the beginning, so unless you got some Wonderlaanders into Sweden, you just wasted tons of money.
    • What would the response to Sverige: En nordisk dröm be in Wonderlaand?, as I said it was a huge hit in the country.
  • Australia continues to industrialize. Tensions seem to get more harsh as Bharat forgets about their promises.
  • Ethiopia begins the first steps toward industrialization, and work on modernizing the poor transportation network of the country begins. A new railroad network has been laid down, and rebuilding of the major cities has begun to accomomdate the new infrastructure. The vast swathes of the military are disbanded to make way for a new modern one. 15,000 men and women have been recruited to begin training of a new military force, and work on developing a local defense industry has been started as part of the modernization program.
  • Denmark secretly begins a plan to develop ICBMs. Denmark begins to demolish its elevated subway lines and instead begins working on an underground system, called the Pan Denmark Subway System, an International Rail project proposed by Wernher von Braun. A World Record Book is published, written by Olaf Skeemetzky. In the Bothnia Gulf, the Danish flagship Unity blows up, killing the 431 crewmen aboard. An investigation begins into the disaster and who caused the worst accident in Danish naval history. Construction begins on a bridge from Denmark to Sweden, expected to be completed in 1956. A skyscraper is completed in Copenhagen (the height of the OTL's NYC Twin Towers) and it is measured to be the tallest building in the world. Wonderlaand propaganda is ejected and the Swedes reject it as well. Danish financial institutions fail to recognize the benefit of Wonderlaand's trash because the Liberal government will not like it, unlike the Conservatives who planned to ravage Sweden. (These Conservatives were all executed. And they lost all the seats. And the pro-everyone who are nice to everyone Liberals took power.)
  • Italy builds up its industry and economy, until its economy is one of the largest by GDP in Europe (behind Russia and Hungary). Italy meanwhile begins to research submarine technology, and makes improved submersibles. This will give the world its first look of the ocean floor. Meanwhile, Italy proposes that a new form of an International Union be made.
  • Síkságok Nemzet expands by 25,000 sq km.
  • Hungary continues to update its military.
  • Szent Lörinc and Uruguay update their militaries.
  • Newfoundland expands 84,000 sq km.
  • Neue Brandenburg expands by 20,000 sq km. The Socialist Party wins reduced election returns, and is forced to join in a coalition with the Collectivists, who together initiate the creation of a larger welfare state.
  • Bharat and its army trains harder than ever, and amps up with tanks and infantry continuing to work together. Bharat finishes its incoporation of Mughalistan and Nepal in the invasion phase and now begins to add the areas as states of the country. It is predicted to take a bit of time and there are many problems to be ironed out, such as how to keep the Muslims from rebelling. The BBC continues to grow, and War of the Worlds! becomes even more popular. 2063: Doomsday becomes another blockbuster, and although it is not as popular as Mera Bharat, it still manages to create a few records. The movie becomes something to think about and a group of producers and writers think there should be a sequel to the movie. The Times continues to spread, and expands services. Tata's Air corps continue producing helicopters, and many are provided with more armour. The "Delhi Project" focus on building more nuclear bombs and its stock has increase greatly. H-Bombs continue production. They continue to research the properties of nuclear power for commercial use. B.A.S.A is founded this year, short for Bharati Administration of Space Agency, and they test their very own rockets going into space. They build many rockets which they will test, and many of them are multi-stage. They also begin to build a radio device which will be able to transmit from Space, and manage to almost complete it this year. Their rockets also test successfully, and many find that multi-stage offers the best advantages. Seeing China managing to successfully get moneys into near-space, Bharat trains its own monkeys. One of them, called Ham, is sent in the rocket towards the end of the year, and comes back successfully. He becomes an overnight celebrity and people flock to see him. Bharat also offers China a chance for a joint space exploration mission. More normal jet fighters are produced and an upgraded design enters mass production. Testing also starts on fighters which will be able to fly at supersonic speeds. Manga and Anime continue to grow in popularity.
  • Bengal's Apartheid continues to be set up. To keep control, the military is amped up. The colony in South Africa is expanded by 48800 km in every direction. Amir Khan continues to actively protest the apartheid system, and he continues rallying up a large crowd behind him in protest.
  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. Hectares of desert are converted into farmland as the rains increase exponentianally due to the chemicals. Many people move into the new farmlands to farm the new agricultural land. This land also enables many cities to be build. Huge oil-fields are built to extract the natural resources of the country.
  • Onguayal work on their army and continue industrializing. More of Onguayal's fleet continues to be upgraded and Onguayal expands 45,000 km. Onguayal continue to plan to invade Fjordlaand to consolidate their power on the continent and strengthen their power base. They continue to send converters, and even though it is slow progress, they seem to be converting enough to weaken the country's resolve. They built up a huge amount of troops on the country's border, getting ready to invade it in one swift movement.
  • Naya Bharat and Hindustan continue to connect up roads with the two states which have recently joined the colonies in a union. The colonies continue using the chemicals to increase rainwater, and many people begin to move inland. The colonies begin to ask for Greater Autonomy again and continue to formulate plans of becoming a Federation.
  • Sindu expands 110250 km south and eastward. The colony continues to see a wave of immigrants and around a million people immigrate to the country this year.

Castille declares total independence from France. Meanwhile, movements in Flanders begin to end the French influence. Meanwhile, the movie Sverige: En nordisk dröm has become popular in Norway.
  • The Vietnamese officially annexes the Empire of the Lakes into their East African colony. The Kenians expand their territory westwards, and continue expanding their industry into their newly acquired territories in Bale. NOTE: You'd better show the 15 years of Kenian expansion on the map. Also how many pixels does the Empire of the Lakes add to the Vietnamese East African colony?
    • I don't know, but since you expanded this colony by over 8000 px since the last counting, your colony now has more than 30,000 px.
    • I'm going to make it declare independance exactly on the 1960 mark.
  • The New Lithuanians continue expanding their industry. The New Lithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 238*50 sq km.
  • The Taiwanese continue to expand their industry throughout their country. The Taiwanese expand their New Taihoku colony by 238*50 sq km on the mainland.
  • The Myanma continue to expand their industry throughout their country.
  • The British continue to expand their industry throughout their country.
  • The Tangierians continue their war against the Moroccans.
  • Wales continues to assimilate the Bretons into Welsh society. Anti-Wonderlaand propaganda is discontinued as the cost to effect ration was too high. Radiator Queen Technologies is born from an expermental T.V division in Royale Entertainment. Orange Industries scrap the original Mandarin computer due to copyright confusion. A formal apology is sent the Mitsubishi Group along with an offer for a 7 year co-operation agreement that states that Orange Industries will be willing to work in conjuction with Toshiba on future projects. Orange releases the "Naval I" computer for government use, relying on an external drive source called the magnetic drive disk that relys on magnetic reels inside of the disk to record information. Kingsley Motor Group splits into two divisions, Royal Motor Corp, and the Jefferson Group, one a luxury style company and the other, designed for cheap private use. All divisions are still apart of the moniqer "Kingsley Motor Group LLC" Kingsley Motor Group begins selling vehicles overseas, mainly in Russia and parts of Northern Europe. A new market opens up in Bharat and Nippon, allthough they are small and do not garner much support. The Ministry of Space Exploration develops a new rocket called the Titania I and it is immediantly retro fitted for ICBM use. The General Assemby officially lifts sanction off of Wonderlaand. a rival consumer electronics group is born called Victor Computer Corp that directly competes with Orange and they release their first computer titled "Mark I". The executives of Victor ask for a secret mission with the Nipponese competetors on ways to undermine Orange, so that Victor can become the preeminant computer corp in the West. Radiator Queen releases an improved larger T.V with the "remote control" a device that allows you to switch between all channels of your television. Radiator Queen immediantly patents its device. Casino Royale begins shooting whenever the director wishes.( I may be booted off the internet a while because of the DNS virus thing, the FBI is shuting down servers in the U.S. If that is the case, I ask that Lurk and the other mods just assume I am updating or something because I may not have access for days.)
    • Toshiba (which is part of the Mitsui group not Mitsubishi, sorry my bad, I got them mixed up) is glad for the apology but is more pleased with the monetary damages/compensation gained from the lawsuit. Toshiba while disliking Orange as they are part of the competition and tried to infringe on Toshiba's patents, are unsure whether they should join Orange industries as co-operation could potentially make Toshiba a lot of money. However, once Toshiba receives the offer from Victor Computer Corp. They decide to instead start joint operations with Victor rather than Orange, as Victor haven't wronged Toshiba like Orange has done in the past.
  • Is that so? I haven't heard this. In such a case, I shall ask someone to write something for me about how I continue my rocket and computer research, while countering everything Wonderlaand says.
  • Here's the link
  • The Conservative Party of Denmark begins to lose all power in the Senate. By March, there are only three conservative holdouts in Greenland. Denmark asks Wales and Russia to a joint mission into space, with the research into our satellites (Scandinavia, Galaxy, and Sputnik) we could beat the world, we could reach space, especially with all our combined efforts. Only together can we win again!, as we did in the nuclear weaponry race! Meanwhile Danish computer engineers acquire Toshiba's hard disk plans, but at great cost.
    • Wales sees no issue in having a mutual development groups as it will aid in research greatly. DreamTheatre states that it backs Actor Sean Penn as Ian Fleming in Casino Royale.
    • Heinstadt is okay and can Denmark's biggest computer conglomerate work with Orange? Meanwhile we really have to get Russia in on this. Perhaps Denmark/Wales/Russia could do rocketry and computer stuff together. Lx, Andrew, thoughts?
    • What is the name of Denmark's computer company. How would you like to work with Orange?
    • The name is Småbløde and it is a Microsoft parallel. I was thinking Orange and Smablode can work together against Toshiba/Mitshubishi.
    • what do you have planned? Your post said that your engineers lost a great deal from the theft. Can you still compete? Orange Industries is an Canonacal parrallel(Ubuntu) but is infinately easier than linux. We could create some sort of hardware/software deal in the future. but that would have to wait until pc's were actually invented (OTL 1970's)
    • Yeah, Russia is really needed if you are going to be leading in technology.
    • What happened was that a dying company stole it in order to survive, but they died anyway. Then Smablode stole at no cost at all. I can compete.
  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Empress Orvokki Komeiji continues to write her Hakugyokurou manga; and also feels like testing the few bombs and nukes she has, but doesn't want to test it in Huippuvuoret nor near Etelämanner as it would disrupt the people in Huippuvuoret and the Finnish Overseas Prefecture of Sätōri; so she asks the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha if its okay for her to test the bombs and nukes there. Shogun Eleonoora Anaberal decides to resign and soon elections are held. Yuyuko Kekkonen (female, Shintoist) becomes new Shogun of Finland. Shogun Yuyuko Kekkonen begins to buy plenty of products from the Nipponese zaibatsu companies so Finland could be up to date, as the companies in Finland don't really making anything besides kurumá, military equipment (tanks, weapons, etc.), phones. However, she does try to encourage that the Finns should establish some of their own companies and try to compete, which kind of doesn't work, but is somewhat effective in convincing some. Soon a new Finnish Company, called Öpel is established, decided to try to build technology and some other supplies for the Finns. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot. Television's spread in Finland. Animation films and Anime and Manga are continued to be made too. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company begins to lean toward only making cars and military equipment (tanks, weapons, etc.) while Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia begins focusing on making really the phones. Toshiaki Maijala travels to Saigyō and does a tour there. The Finrando Hōsō Kyōkai also broadcasts the Trial in Sunda of Toyotama Jaakkola as being one of the major news this year. Plans for a Toyohokkäi 101 is under-way to be built (it'll be similar to the OTL Taipei 101). Sonja Komeiji looks around Finland, seeing that despite the modernisation, it still resembles that it's out of date, though she's still glad to see most of the Finns still wearing most traditional clothing (Finnish and Japanese alike), and the fact that a reasonable amount of Finns are Samurai; meanwhile there are a few Finns that were business suits and a few other Finns that are also wearing some modern clothing, but not much. The film Sverige: En nordisk dröm is not shown in Finland as it is deemed offensive. A few films are released this year, with a notable one being Ennen Vanhaan (In the Old Days), which has Finland looking more like if it was in a Feudal Japan situation around 1480s-1540s had it been independent in 1400s.

The space programme begins to pick up speed as animals are sent into space, a lot of them die at first, but eventually the rockets are fixed so that animals don't die; and plans to send a human into space are made. Anime & manga continue to gain popularity in Nippon, with the hottest new manga this year being the Kouga Ninja Scrolls, which is set during the Japanese civil war of the 1600s as two ninja clans, Tsubagakure of the Iga and Manjidani of Kouga, battle each other to determine which grandson of the dying Shogun will become the next shogun.

  • The Republic of Wonderlaand amps up its military and continues to support the cause of Swedish independence as Swedish separatist political parties continue to be funded. Wonderlaand continue to stir up feelings of pan-Swedish nationalism in the country, Sweden and in Fjordlaand too. Norratsu also create a chemical and biological weapons for Wonderlaand, which start to be stockpiled. The extreme Swedish nationalists in Wonderlaand grow tired of the slow progress of using propaganda to start revolution in Sweden and start to call for major action to be taken against Denmark. Another Wonderlaand film director (Klas Petersen) creates a pro-Sweden film as homage to Sverige: En nordisk dröm which was last year's highest grossing film in Wonderlaand. In his film "A sensible prediction of the future" he shows a world where the Swedish people begin rioting against their Danish rulers, as news about Swedish discontent begins to be leaked out of Denmark despite a cover-up operation by the Danish government. The Danish government see two options before them, peacefully giving the Swedes independence or fighting to keep Sweden. The film then looks at the consequences of both choices, before returning back to the decision scene and ending just before the Danish leader made his decision. Klas Petersen's film is a huge success in Wonderlaand and it begins to be sent around the world, including a signed copy to the Danish government.
    • Denmark attaches "A sensible prediction of the future" to a new h-bomb and blows it up in Svalbard as part of tests on a new h-bomb. The Swedish government, not the Danish government, outlaws the film, but it is seen in Denmark and Greenland.
      • Klas Petersen is annoyed that Denmark would blow up a signed copy of his latest film, as they could of sold it to collectors for a tidy profit to help fund the large deficit Denmark is running up with all this military expansion and WMD programmes, necessary to keep the Swedes oppressed and underfoot.

New Comic series come out, including a parodic view of world history with countries personified into one person (too soon???). More cartoons about Russian fairy tales come out, and some filmakers debate on whether or not it is better to make animations for Science-fiction, or live action, due to the hability to protray more advanced-tech things. Roskosmos designs its first satellite prototype, which they want to launch next year.

  • Bharat and its army trains harder than ever, and amps up with tanks and infantry continuing to work together. Mughalistan and Nepal begin to be integrated on the civilian level, and Mughalistan is given a slight bit more autonomy from other states to keep it from rebelling. Nepal, meanwhile, seems to be getting incorporated with no problems as the people there are happy to be part of Bharat. The BBC continues to grow, and along with War of the Worlds!, a new programme Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabi Bahu Thi, is made. It is a drama about a normal family and its ordeals and things (kinda like the Bharati EastEnders, except that this program did excist in OTL but in the 90s and 00s!) and begins to attract a good viewership record. As computer technologies grow significantly, a Bharati computering company is set up. It is called Hemu-Prabakar Computers (Hemu and Prabarkar being the first names of the two who started the business). It is shortened to HP Computers, and they soon begin trying to elimanate the gap between them and other companies. They make their own computers, although these take up rooms full of space. They then (ahem, secretly) take apart one of Toshiba's computers in one of the Bharati universities to look at how it functions and this information is enough for their computers to be able to make significantly smaller, more like wardrobe size. HP computers, seeing Bharat's growing film industry, begin working on CGI technology to aid the creation of Sci-Fi movies. The Times continues to spread, and expands services. Tata's Air corps continue producing helicopters, and many are provided with more armour. The "Delhi Project" focus on building more nuclear bombs and its stock has increase greatly. H-Bombs continue production. They continue to research the properties of nuclear power for commercial use. B.A.S.A chooses the rocket they would want to send to space for their satellite and make it completely working. Their radio device, which will transmit signals from space and will be the first "space antenna" is completed. Many of the rockets are, however, discarded. However, a few of these are seen to have potential for Inter-Continental Missiles by the army. They soon buy these and test them. All of those tests are successful and the army begins making its very own Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles. Bharat also offers China a chance for a joint space exploration mission again. More normal jet fighters are produced and an upgraded design enters mass production. Testing also starts on fighters which will be able to fly at supersonic speeds. Manga and Anime continue to grow in popularity.

A huge amount of converters are sent into the country to convert even more of the population and Onguayal does not care whether Fjordlaand notices or not as they will invade it soon. They built up a huge amount of troops on the country's border, getting ready to invade it in one swift movement. They are also considering the USA's offer.
  • Naya Bharat and Hindustan continue to connect up roads with the two states which have recently joined the colonies in a union.

The colonies begin to ask for Greater Autonomy again and continue to formulate plans of becoming a Federation.
  • Sindu expands 110250 km south and eastward. The colony continues to see a wave of immigrants and around a million people immigrate to the country this year. The colony, seeing how the Sahara is a dry and barren place and offers no fertile soil, begin to use the chemicals to increase rainfall as well.

1956

A small worldwide economic recession hits this year. In Norway, this leads to massive dissatisfaction with the government. Many Norwegians see that separation from Denmark and Sweden did not help the Norwegians at all. Some small groups advocate that the Norway and Denmark unite to form a new nation of Scandinavia. Meanwhile, Wunderlaand has massive protests, as its economy was hit worse. The Wunderlaanders claim that the government has wasted billions overseas, and all it has done is give Wunderlaand enemies. In Flanders, the Schmittist Churches (to whom a vast majority of the population belong) endorse peaceful protest for independence from France, resulting in massive peaceful protests occurring there.

  • The Ethiopian government provides money for any companies in the country to build new modern factories in the capital city to attract new residents to bring their skills to city, and to help push the industrialization effort forward.

  • I disagree with your cities list. Copenhagen should be nowhere near ten and Cardiff's population is far lower than Moscow, Copenhagen, and Paris. These three cities are also home to national stuff, like statues, monuments, skyscrapers, and have ridiculously low crime rates due to being the centers and the seats of government.
    • Cardiff is also the seat of national stuff. The list compiles factors like beauty and price of living. It also includes events and monuments/locales that make a city interesting. (This is done by a NATIONALIST magazine so of course Cardiff would be on the list.
    • Well, if this really is a nationalist magazine, the capital of an ally, Copenhagen, which has the tallest building in the world (Copenhagen Twin Tower) would be underneath cities like London, which is not what it is IRL, and Rennes, a little city in Brittany. Anywho, I don't know why we're arguing over this so let's stop.
    • France is on a major decline right now, its economy is probably busted and thus Paris is no where near the top ten. And I don't know where you got the idea that national capitals had low crime, that is not true.
    • I forgot about France falling apart, silly me.
  • Denmark secretly sends aid to the Pan-Scandinavians that already exist in Norway, unlike the Wonderlaanders, who put money into nothing. The Universal Rankings magazine, Life's Number 1 competitor, writes its own list of cities: Petrograd, Kyoto, Copenhagen, Naples, Moscow, Peking, Cardiff, Saigon, Helsinki, London. Meanwhile the Pan Scandinavian highway is completed with the finalization of the Scandinavian Bridge from Denmark to Sweden. The Twin Towers (as tall as OTL's Petronas Twin Towers) are completed, one in Stockholm and one in Copenhagen, to demonstrate unity between Sweden and Denmark.
  • Italy continues to improve their nation. The Italian road system is overhauled, due to the influence of the car companies, Campenni and Bonomi, both of which now control the majority of the vehicle industry in southern Europe and compete with the Brythonic companies in France. The Italian government builds a second nuclear reactor, which now powers a military base in Tunisia. A plan to build a bridge across the Straight of Messina is made. A popular new Italian television show, I Pirati dell'Adriatico, is first produced this year. Many Italians suggest that the magazines with their lists of best cities add either Rome (historical tourism) or Naples (a lot of new developments and technology).

The Mauritius colony is given independence after a plebiscite on the island, and negotiations with the Nipponese government. Nippon pledges to protect Mauritius from aggressors and is granted permission by Mauritius' new government to establish a military base on the island too. Zaibatsu conglomerates move into Norway and Wonderlaand to take advantage of the economic hardships so various Zaibatsu could buy out struggling Norwegian and Wonderlaandian businesses to improve the Zaibatsu's market share in these nations.
    • Actually, if you hadn't noticed, Russia is working on Sputnik, and the only way you could use the designs is by way of espionage. And since when do we send animals into space before satellites?

  • The Republic of Wonderlaand amps up its military and politicians in the country becomes wary of the recession and public protests. The government decides to continuing supporting the cause of Swedish independence but greatly reduce the funding being sent to the Swedish separatist political parties which don't seem to be gaining much support in Sweden. The extreme Swedish nationalists in Wonderlaand greatly oppose this action by the government who claim that the Swedish separatists are being oppressed by Denmark and votes for the separatist parties are being changed by vote counters to other pro-Danish parties. (un?)Fortunately General Lukas Nielssen is an extreme Swedish nationalist who is in charge of the Wonderlaandian WMD programme, he believes the Danes are suppressing the truth about the Swedish independence movement, and General Nielssen is shocked that the dream of re-establishing the Swedish state seems to be going under. To solve the problems of recession and Swedish independence the General hatches a plot to create lots more jobs, unite the people and free Sweden. He assembles a team of elite spec-op agents and steals a multitude of WMDs from Wonderlaand, and the cell makes it way to Copenhagen. The group release a multitude of biological weapons in Copenhagen including bubonic plague, anthrax, cholera and typhus; with bubonic plague being the main weapon of choice after vast amounts of infected fleas are released in Copenhagen, but the water supplies where also infected with cholera and typhus. This was the first stage of the attack, after this the cell members decide to die in the next wave of attacks rather than die from the biological attacks by catching one of the diseases. So they decide to go take part in a suicide bombings across the city blowing up the largest skyscrapers, train stations, and government buildings including the parliament building setting off a mustard gas bombs at the same time of blowing up the bombs thus gassing any survivors to death. General Neilssen's ultra-nationalist Swedish party claim responsibility for the attacks which have killed nearly everyone in Copenhagen.
    • The capital is relocated to Stockholm within 24 hours of the attacks. With King Haakon and his Wife dead, his brother Harald become the regent for their two year old son. Harald vows to exact his revenge upon Wonderlaand to for killing his only brother and his sister in law, wife, and everyone else in Copenhagen. Emergency elections are held and Denmark declares a state of national emergency. All access to Denmark is shut down, and the entire peninsula is placed under quarantine and lockdown. By unanimous vote, Sweden, yes, Sweden, declares war on Wonderlaand. King Harald calls for the condemnation of Wonderlaand by the international community and for Lukas Nielssen to be tried at the International Court of Human Rights. Wonderlaand was saved by Harald's advisors from being nuked to non existance and out of mercy he gives Wonderlaand two options: surrender or perish. The subway tunnels to Denmark and Copenhagen are shut down, and the Scandinavian Bridge is demolished. Sweden (I am Sweden now, not Denmark any longer) calls on Wales, Russia, Finland, Eesti Vabariik, even enemies China, Bharat, and Nippon to aid and anyone else who gives a crap and wants to fight this war. Deaths are estimated to be higher than 56 million, and the numbers are predicted to rise. Denmark is fully prepared to launch its only three ICBMs at Wonderlaand.
    • Wait a minute ... you got into Copenhagen? Don't lie. I know for sure that you can't get past a blockade of fifteen aircraft carriers, several dreadnoughts, and god knows how much other stuff. Especially without the support of your government. With that he could have at least fought the Danish navy, but not any other way. Also, what is everyone elses opinion about this?
      • Judging from the description, it was a small group sneaking into the city, not any massive attack the army could have prevented. That said, there's a limit to how effective the suicide bombers and those diseases could be in the modern age. I would predict a death toll of less than a thousand for the suicide bombs. Far from all of Copenhagen being destroyed.
      • Also, I don't know how 56 million would die, all of your nation doesn't have that many people
    • The Brythonic Commonwealth (Wales) declares unrestricted warfare against Wonderlaand as Queen Maria was Welsh Royalty and the Wonderland attack was completely cowardly. The Welsh General Assembly passes a motion to arm the nations ICBM's and puts the military on high alert. The General Assembly declares a state of Emergency as there were many Welsh tourists in Copenhagen at the time of the attack(The wedding feast of King Haarkon and Queen Maria totaled about 2600 people) the Welsh Navy is sent toward Wonderland with the intent to to bomb Wonderlaand into submission. In response to the attacks-certain groups within Wales launches a surprise attack without the government knowing and detonates bombs in several public areas in Wonderlaand, killing hundreds. (NOBODY KNOWS WHO DID IT, BTW) The King addresses the nation and calls on the EC and the SDL to fight the evil Wonderlaanians. Wales also implores Russia to bring her might down on Wonderlaand. Welsh CDCaP(Centre for Disease Conrol and Prevention) immediately shuts down all ports of entry into Wales and closes the French/Breton border. Military units are stationed on the French/Breton border to ensure no people pass into Britanny. A nation health warning is issued.
    • Italy declares war upon Wunderlaand in support of the Scandinavians and Brythons.
    • There's no way those attacks would have killed everyone in Copenhagen. There are no bombs that a small team could sneak into the city in 1956 that could kill more than a few hundred people. Those diseases can all be treated in the modern age, and would not wipe out the entire city (especially not all at once). This better not be some rage reaction to the moderator events ...
  • The Russian government and Emperor, furious about the Designs of The Nipponese satellite mirroring the Russian Sputnik, the Russian military in the Siberian and Far Eastern commands are put on high alert. The rocket carrying the first Russian Artificial Satellite, Sputnik-1, "coincidentally" Knocks into the Nipponese satellite, Knocking it out of orbit. Sputnik-1 sends radio signals to Earth, and the Russian people listen to then for 90 days before the batteries die out. The signal is "Mother Russia will dominate the Cosmos above all!!! Long Live Europe. Long live Mother Russia!!!" in Morse code. A month after Sputnik-1 was launched, Sputnik-2 is launched, carrying the fist living dog is sent into space, named Laika. He does not survive re-entry, as his life signs sent via radio to earth have shown. The Russians modify their design, and in December, Belka and Strelka, two smaller dogs, are sent into Space on the Sputnik-3 capsule from Baikanour Cosmodrome. They survive, and make great news. Military pilots are recruited for the Space program, including the first pilot of Sikorsky's new Plane, the Sikorsky Arrow (OTL avro arrow), Yuri Gagarin. Russia wants to send a man into space as soon as possible. Roskosmos plans to send more research satellites into space as well very soon. plans for Sputnik-4 and a new program within Roskosmos, named Vostok, to send a man into space is founded, and for it, a planned ship, Sputnik-korabl-1, and sputnik-korabl-2 the planned prototypes that will be launched as a prototype to the ship that will carry a man into space, although they are planned, they are not fully designed and built. The Russian Baltic sea fleet as well as the Largest and newest Russian aircraft carrier, the HIMS(His Imperial Majesty's Ship) Mesheryakov, and the RIS Suvotrov mobilize, as well as the Russian Marines and the Russian Spetsnaz, running much more operations. The Russian air force does many more air raids in Wonderland. The Pacific and Northern fleets are also mobilized, but not to the same extent, to attack Wonderlaand directly. The Russian Commonwealth debates on whether or not to join in the conflict. The Russian fleet of strategic bombers are on hold, and in their cargo bays lie 10 megaton H-bombs. Military buildup begins, and a project to build missile silos, project rain of flames, begins, and planned locations for silos are made, construction for them is to be made, along with plans on creating ICBMs, with the first one being launched and traveling 6000 km along Russia. Although it is not that accurate, the Russians have fitted it with a sloika warhead. The Russians launch air raids on the Capital of Wonderlaand. The Russian commonwealth's leaders, after convening, considering Russia and wales' involvement in the war, declare that if either nation is attacked directly, it is their duty under the Russian Commonwealth Mutual Defence Pact (RCMDP) to declare war on Wonderlaand, as per the treaty. Russia threatens to use their nuclear arsenal - their H-bomb arsenal.
    • The Vietnamese are dismayed, though not surprised with Russia's underhanded tactics. They state that the similar designs are either coincidence or the work of a traitor within the Russian space program. They emphatically state that Russia's despicable sabotage of the Nipponese satellite does not change the fact that Nippon beat Russia into space.
    • Wait a year
  • China launches Wèixīng I in late December. The International Space agency is created in light of Russia's sabotage. The Agency is meant as a joint space mission for all nations going into space and proposes rules on space missions, including an anti-sabotage rule.
  • Dongfang expands in Nevada by 17,000 sq km.
  • Bharat and its army trains harder than ever, and amps up with tanks and infantry continuing to work together. Mughalistan and Nepal are incorporated into Bharat successfully and quicker than the government expected. The BBC continues to grow, and War of the Worlds!, along with Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabi Bahu Thi, attract good viewership. HP Computers make good progress this year, and begin improving the coding form, which is quite complex. Their computers seems to work well, and at their cheaper cost than many other markets, are snapped up by universities quite quickly. It is hoped these computers will grow smaller in size but until then, work is carried out on them. HP computers also begin to make good progress on CGI technology, but realize that they need better computers for CGI to be more impressive. The Times continues to spread, and expands services. Tata's Air corps continue producing helicopters, and many are provided with more armour. The "Delhi Project" is finally disbanded this year, and an agency is set up to watch over nuclear stock-piling. They continue to research the properties of nuclear power for commercial use. The Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles continue to be worked at and it seems that larger and larger payloads can be carried by these rockets which are continuously improving. More normal jet fighters are produced and an upgraded design enters mass production. Many fighters which have completed testing are included into the air force, and these are added into the air force. These fighters can cross into the supersonic barrier, although they cannot hyper-cruise. Manga and Anime continue to grow in popularity, with Prince Ashok trying his own hand. He turns out to be OK, and he designs a few characters for short stories. The Prince is then assigned with a navy contingent in the Arctic to see that peace is kept after recent attacks on Denmark. B.A.S.A has the rocket which will carry their satellite into space ready and waiting. Their radio device is put in the transportation section of the rocket and the rocket is ready to be hauled out by the end of the year. Meanwhile, seeing the Australian rebellion, they quickly send troops to crush it. A large force heads that way to keep the peace and force them to surrender. The army manages to regain control in all its colonies as most of the populace is redistributing themselves to farm newly fertile land. However, progress in main Australia is slow, but they manage to defeat many of the rebellions in many pitched battles. The government then promises all of Bharati Australia greater autonomy if this rebellion is stood down upon. The colonies agree, but the response of the main state is unsure. Because of the (apparent) solving of this problem, stocks pick up again and the country heads back on its road to economic greatness.
  • Bengal's Apartheid continues to be set up. To keep control, the military is amped up. The colony in South Africa is expanded by 48,800 km in every direction. Amir Khan continues to actively protest the apartheid system, and 100s of 1000s rally behind him. The government send the army to keep control, but it is messy and many are killed. Khan manages to increase his influence, and the government senses problems are beginning.
  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. The countries rivers now begin to over-flow in many places and many new lakes form. The team of scientists continue their research. The population redistribution continues. Much oil and gas is extracted from the country to be sold onward, and Afghanistan seems to be not affected by the global recession.
  • Onguayal work on their army and continue industrializing. More of Onguayal's fleet continues to be upgraded and Onguayal expands 45,000 km. Onguayal continue to plan to invade Fjordlaand to consolidate their power on the continent and strengthen their power base and the army and air force have fully mobilized. The country is finally invaded with full force and troops roll in en masse. The opening battles seem to go in Onguayal's way to the surprise attack, but it is unknown how long they can hold this up for.
  • Naya Bharat and Hindustan continue to connect up roads with the to states which have recently joined the colonies in a union. The colonies continue using the chemicals to increase rainwater, and many people begin to move inland. The colonies finally receive the autonomy they asked for and stop their rebellion.
  • Sindu expands 110250 km south and eastward. The colony continues to see a wave of immigrants and around a million people immigrate to the country this year. The colony begins to use the chemicals to increase rainfall as well, and many parts start to become green again, after eons of being desert land.

1957

Flanders officially declares the independence of the Flemish Shogunate from France. The former colonial capital of Amsterdam is selected as the new nation's capital.

Let's face facts. This makes much more sense in the grand scheme of things than Finland's interesting, but frankly absurd, Japanization. At least Flanders had some historic ties to Japan.

  • The Vietnamese expand their East African colony by 722*50 sq km. The Vietnamese continue expanding their industry into the newly annexed territory. The Kenians expand their country westwards.
  • The Neolithuanians continue expanding their industry throughout their country. The Neolithuanians expand their New Samogita colony by 238*50 sq km.
  • Taiwanese continue to expand their industry throughout their country. They expand the New Taihoku colony by 238*50 sq km.
  • The Myanma continue to expand their industry throughout their country.
  • The British continue to expand their industry throughout their country.
  • The Tangierians continue their war against the Moroccans.
  • China creates the Tiānkōng Program. The goal of Tiānkōng is to have a man in space by the end of the decade. Work on the Tiānkōng I rocket begins as pilots put their names forth, though the name of the pilot will be announced next year.
  • I call dibs on the first orbital man.
  • BTW, that was me Scraw, and if you don't believe me, check the history.
  • Dongfang expands in Nevada by 17,000 sq km.
  • Breslau develops the economy and sends diplomats to the German Union to ask for a defensive pact and guns and artillery for rail cars and some minor electronics.
  • Is Breslau a Polish, German, or Czech nation? Polish = Wroclaw German = Breslau Czech = Vratislav. Willster22 (talk) I am Breslau! (:
  • I imagine it is a mixture of the three, as it is right where they come together. It was last ruled by the Anglo-Germans and has a German name, so they dominate. The main religion is Hussite Christianity. Other than that they are pretty much the same as you would expect
  • Denmark launches the Scandinavia I and reconstruction begins in Copenhagen. The death toll, which is 630 from the disease and 1209 from attacks on the Copenhagen Twin Tower and that other building which I forgot the name of. The King recovers from the sicknesses spread by the Nielssonites but goes to Stockholm until it is proven that Copenhagen is safe. Denmark starts the Cosmos Project, to get an orbital man by 1959, to compete with China. Troops remain in Wonderlaand territory, and Nielsson is captured and sent to Sunda to be put on trial at the ICHR, and he is found guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death. The Stockholm Planetarium is constructed. Smablode publishes its own programming language. Denmark acquires Nouvelle Champagne from Wales. (He said he would give it to me.) Friedrich's F-050 is released. (Friedrich is a Ford parallel.) Christian Mehenweil invents the laser in Goteburg.
    • You haven't won the war yet, you can't claim you defeated him. Your capital has been hit severely and you are at war, so you aren't going to get anyone to space by 1959. In real life, the Soviet Union didn't do that when they were a superpower. Denmark is not strong enough to do so.
    • My capital has temporarily been relocated to Stockholm. Also, I don't see why you are saying that. Examples in the history of this game: when the USA and France went to war, France kept fighting but someone said France lost so they had no rights as to when and how the war ended. Someone said that to me as well when Berlin defeated me in 1914. My numbers skyrocket over Wonderlaand's, so I get to decide when and how the war ends. Besides, Von told me that Wonderlaand surrenders and Nielssen and his followers were turned over to Denmark. Besides, the NASA was based in Stockholm, as was all my space race stuff, since that is where Wernher von Braun lived. As a matter of fact I did a lot of stuff in Stockholm to show that Sweden was not being oppressed. As is International Rail, National Steel Corporation, Global Greenhead, and a ton of other stuff. Also, the intent of Cosmos is getting the man out there by 59, that doesn't mean it's going to happen. So all of your statement and crossing out is invalid.
    • Yes, but they do not have to surrender Nielssen and all of Wonderlaand, as they only have to give up 16% of heir land. Since he has not stated on the game or talk page that he is surrendering his whole nation or any leaders over to you, it is not happening until he states so. I'll remove the crossing-out of the space goal, but let it be known that that does not mean that there will be men in space in 1959
      • I never said Wonderlaand surrenders, I said that: "Are you saying nearly all the Dane's have died in this attack btw? If millions have died and the country has been practically wiped out, then I guess the rest of Wonderlaand would surrender and condemn Neilssen." If millions don't die from the attack then Wonderlaand don't surrender. Simple. ~VON
    • Also, the first man in space (Gagarin) was in 61 so even China should not be up there until then.
  • Wales expands it industry and the borders re-open. Efforts begin to assist the bereaved. The General Assembly states that it will not participate in another unilateral military action unless directly provoked. Galaxy I is launched into orbit and relays a message in Morse Code that says The Future Is Here! CBC begins to cover war time news in all corners of the globe. Wales thanks the SDL for their backing of the Wonderlaand offensive and hopes this will be the last time Wales will be at war. Orange develops an advanced mission control that will be shared by Wales and Denmark/Sweden(What are you now?) Plans are still put into motion for a Wales-Denmark-Russia economic and political union, though it is all on paper right now. Wales follows Russia into space with the Dog Laddie, following Russia's example Laddie made it back to Earth as one of the few living beings to make it back. A memorial is constructed in Gerth Ceyern for the lives lost in the terrorist attacks. Welsh scientists are still working on fusion with a little success. All of the Brythonic Commonwealth is now Powered ny Nuclear Power plants (our nation is fairly small, it could be done) Diplomatic Relations are established with Flanders in hopes of fostering a long standing friendship. Kingsley Motor Group also expands into Germany and even begins selling in Italy (although a limited number) A new group called the Automotive Reliability Group is formed (OTL JD Power) and ranks both Welsh and Italian cars fairly high in user satisfaction. Orange releases the Naval II for use by by all consumers(that can afford it). It boasts a new HDD and a base command line operating system that streamlines tasks for all commercial enterprises (that can afford it, which is like a few).
    • Therefore, Russia was first ... thank you. and Russia agrees to the Political-Economic union ... but lets start with having one currency.
    • Russia was not first. Their post last year was crossed out. You and I were first.
  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Empress Orvokki Komeiji continues to write the Hakugyokurou manga; and she also sends military support to help Denmark fight against Wonderlaand. Sonja Komeiji is a bit annoyed about another war, and hopes that this will be the last war that Finland will ever fight, and proceeds to hide out in a secure safe place until the war is over. Shogun Yuyuko Kekkonen also hides out, and thinks about in moving the Finnish government to Toyohokkäi, but decides not to, for now anyway. Empress Orvokki Komeiji proceeds to increase the security throughout Finland, shut down Helsinki, Kokkola, and most of the Finnish coastal cities and has many Finnish Imperial Navy to heavily guard and defend the Gulf of Komachi and Gulf of Finland to ensure the Wonderlaanders doesn't try to destroy any Finnish city. Öpel continues to make its own products its own way and own ideas. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot. Animation films and Anime and Manga are continued to be made too; with some films being about peace and all. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company continues to lean toward only making cars and military equipment (tanks, weapons, etc.) while Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia continues to focusing on making really the phones. Toshiaki Maijala finishes the tour in Saigyō, and plans on doing a tour in Nippon soon, but goes back to the Finnish Overseas Prefecture of Sätōri for a while. A female artist paints Yuyuko Saigyouji in Hakodate, with lots of spirits surrounding her. Empress Orvokki Komeiji loves it so much she decides to purchase the painting and puts it up in her room. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik more roads and motorway are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy bit more, and also sends military support to help Denmark, and condemns Wonderlaand for their actions.
  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military and improve infrastructure, and continues industrialisation. President Ano Aaltonen continues to spread heavy pro-government propaganda in Mystiää, continues to interpret the Juche idea, into account. He continues to design some more new buildings, and one of them would include the Juche Tower. Ano Aaltonen, despite his isolationist politicies, he secretly decides to send some supplies to the Danes in support for their war.
  • Imperial Confederation of Saigyō continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. More roads, motorways, railways, harbours are built and in the Region of Kōshi more Shinto shrines are also built. Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen improves the economy. New animation films continue to be showed in the Safaia Elokuva theatre and more are created. The Kōshis cheer on the war against Wonderlaand and a few Kōshis want to volunteer to join the fight against Wonderlaand and goes to help Denmark. This worries Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen, as she doesn't want the Kōshis dragging the nation into war, so she asks the Empress for what to do. Empress Mikaela Tanaka says to not let them, as she wants the nation to remain neutral, and also is concerned for her Kōshis safety. Shogun Kazuko Häkkinen then proceeds to decline. While the few Kōshis are sort of disappointed in not being able to volunteer, they get over it, and decide to happily go on with their daily lives.
  • People's Republic of Käwäshiro heavily builds up military, continues industrialisation, building infrastructure. President Janika Erkkilä has more military equipment built, and improves the economy. Premier Mauno Miyako continues to improve the road system a bit; and he also sends military support in support of Denmark and fights against the Wonderlaanders.
  • Australia keeps rebelling against Bharat and still demands full independence.
    • Bharat has already declared they are giving dominion status to Australia, while their colonies receive less autonomy than that of main Australia
  • Roskosmos launches the world's first artificial satellite, Sputnik-1(this was postponed from last year), and a month later, LAika is launched into space in the sputnik-3 ship, but he does not survive re-entry. The Russian design is modified, and two other dogs, Belka and Strelka, make it in Sputnik-3. Sputnik relays "Russia will dominate the Cosmos. Long live Europe. Long Live Mother Russia!!!" in morse code for 90 days before the batteries run out. The Russian forces concentrate their fire on Wonderlaand, and demand unconditional surrender, or nuclear arsenals will be used. Russia tables legislature in the Senate to have one currency for all Commonwealth nations. Although this would require all commonwealth nations to agree, Ukraine, Poland, Transcaucasia and Kazakhstan agree as they are already using the Ruble. air raids on the Wonderlaand capital continues, as the first true ICBM silo is constructed, and work on the "Transrussias" highways are reaching 40% completion.
  • Denmark launched Scandinavia I already and Wales launched Galaxy I so to say that Sputnik is the first artificial satellite is an insult. Plain and simply, Denmark and Wales beat you into space.
  • Providing Denmark agrees the new Political/Economic Union will vote on an official name and currency (it cannot be the ruble by default as Denmark is not joining the Russian Commonwealth) This is a new political Union that will fuse the Russian Commonwealth with Wales and Denmark to form a new Confederation of nations. I propose the name Pan Europa as the official name and the Euro/or Europa as our currency.
  • Wales may have come after you but Denmark beat you. Face the facts and accept defeat. Denmark beat you into space, plain and simple. Also we'll the value of our new currency should fall in the middle of the ruble and the Danish mark.
    • '​'Actually, Wales was following Russia into space (as seen by their post). I was going to launch my satellite last year, but it was recounted. and anyway, Russia still launched the first living creature into space: the dog Laika. Sorry, I panicked and missed the danish post. I apologize.
    • OK, I got the satellite, you got the dog. I get the human, then we team up and hit the moon before China! Apology accepted. Let's discover our union somewhere else.
    • I followed Russia because of the last post. I didn't know it was retconned. I propose that all three nations focus on beating the Eastern nations to the moon.
    • Actually, many nations have launched animals into Space over the last few years.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces more Kusanagi V3 grade nuclear bombs and Ennetsu grade nuclear bombs. Nippon produces more nuclear submarine too, and the the first Ōwatatsumi class submarine is launched too, which has the capabilities to launch ballistic missiles. Nippon's rocket programme continues as more powerful rockets are built, and ICBM launch bases are built in each of the Nipponese colonies and regions of the actual nation. The space programme begins to pick up speed as a satellite is launched into space known as Fukurokuju-1 (OTL Sputnik 1), the radio message is picked up from the satellite but eventually the batteries on the thing run out. Unfortunately space men of the future won't be able to see the first Nipponese and Russian satellites in space after the two collide "accidentally". Another replacement satellite is sent up to take the place of the old Fukurokuju-1. Nipponese submarines move into the South Pacific to shadow the nations attacking Wonderlaand, Nippon tells them that not all of Wonderlaand is responsible and nuclear strikes against the islands will kill innocent people, and if any nation nukes Wonderlaand, Nippon will destroy the foreign fleets attacking and have the people authorising the strike tried at the International Court of human rights (ICHR).
    • Wales states that the nuclear weapons are just a deterrent for future attacks. We are well aware of the dangers of nuclear war. You do not fight terrorism with terrorism as it only breeds destruction.
    • Denmark states that it is only attempting to capture Nielssen and his followers and advises its allies not to nuke anyone or anything.
    • Actually, nobody actually knows the full effects of the nuclear bombs yet ...nobody knows of the radiation side effects and its effects on human beings ... Hiroshima and Nagasaki were arguably nuclear tests done by the United States to see its effects on cities and people, along with the motive of stopping the Japanese people from fighting to the last man ... literally. The world is still ignorant of the full effects of nuclear warfare.
      • If Nielssen is in the capital of Wonderlaand and it get nukes a lot more people than just Nielssen are gonna die in the attack. That much is certain. I can also say a similar thing about the attack on Copenhagen, as no nation has had experience of dealing with a Chemical and biological attack. Not even in OTL really, the closest thing I found was the Kaimingjie germ weapon attack to actual biological warfare ~VON.
  • Chamoru amp up the military and a branch of the Chamorro pharmaceutical company Norratsu continues research into chemical weapons and biological weapons, with some researchers from Norratsu being sent to Copenhagen to inspect the damage the weapons caused as this is one of the first "real-world applications" of Norratsu's weapons.
  • The Nipponese Dominion of Shuubudan amp up their military and Shuubudan's industrial output continues to increase.
  • Sunda amps up the military and the International Court of human rights (ICHR) warns Wales and Russia from using nuclear weapons as it would kill thousands of millions people, and a case would start against them if they did. The ICHR awaits the capture of General Neilssen and the rest of his ultra-nationalist Swedish party who organised the attacks in Copenhagen before starting their trail.
  • The military forces are amped up in the USA, Songone and Muisica as the modernization programme continues, focusing mostly on the navy and air forces of the USA. The Federation of the Americas nations continue to become more closely tied economically, and more powers are given to the federation parliament; as legislation continues to be drafted out to govern the new superstate.
  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha amp up their military and the Commonwealth continue to negotiate with Austria to try to solve the problem of Austria infringing on the territorial claims of the Commonwealth.
    • Wales would like to know exactly what is going on. Austria hasn't posted in a while so I doubt they can defend themselves. I thought we settled this already.
  • Hungary declares war on Wonderlaand, supporting Russia and Italy's support of Denmark. Serbia does the same, mostly motivated by Hungarian pressure to do the same. The military continues to be updated, while the Albanian independentists gain support after last year's recession.
  • Newfoundland expands 84,000 sq km.
  • Italy continues the war against Wonderlaand. The Italians decide to build modern naval arsenals to fight in any future wars, outside of the cities this time. Italy begins allowing Muslim tourists to come to Kairounan, and begins to promote tourism in Italy in general. The Italian companies continue to prosper.
  • Dravidia builds up its military.
  • Bharat and its army trains harder than ever, and amps up with tanks and infantry continuing to work together. B.A.S.A experiences some difficulty in launching its own satellite, as its rocket does not lift off. It takes time to fix and by that time Denmark managed to send its rocket into space. However, they are quick enough to beat the Russians, and the country celebrates as their message is broadcast to the world, "Jai Hind, Jai Ho, Jai Bharat and Long live Humanity". Ham is quickly recalled back into service as he is sent into space to prove the point Bharat can make him land safely. He re-enters the atmosphere, and survives, even though his pod was getting a little too hot. The BBC continues to grow, and War of the Worlds!, along with Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabi Bahu Thi, attract good viewership. The BBC also covers the Bharati launch as well as Ham's launch and successful return. HP Computers make good progress this year, and make new coding. HP computers also begin to make good progress on CGI technology, and new coding helps. The Times continues to spread, and expands services. Tata's Air corps continue producing helicopters, and many are provided with more armour. The Nuclear Agency watches over the stock-piling of nuclear bombs. They continue to research the properties of nuclear power for commercial use. The first ICBMs are tested in the Bharati Ocean this year, and are hailed a significant success. More jet fighters are produced. A new fighter is about to enter production, the F-4 Bhoot (basically McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II). It will be able to fly at supersonic speeds for faster and is hoped will outclass any other fighters. The Prince and his navy contingent head south to Wonderlaand to team up with the Nipponese if they ever need them. In the Australian front, it seems things have finally cooled down. The colonies and Austraaia begin to prepare a Federation declaration, and Bharat says or does nothing as they think it will be a good way for the region to stabilize better. A movie, War with Roses is made on the rebellion in Bollywood. In it, things escalate, and Australia moves against Bharat to drop prickly roses on the populace (it's a comedy film, just saying). Bharat responds with Banana missiles and coconut bombs. It seems these flare things, and Australia responds with Mangoes. Bharat, in the end, is left with no choice but to deploy the "custard missile" and when this crashes into the Australia capital they surrender. The movie seems to be well-liked and does very well, especially in Australia.
  • Bengal's Apartheid continues to be set up. To keep control, the military is amped up. The colony in South Africa is expanded by 48800 km in every direction. Amir Khan encourages civil disobedience to the populace, and this causes huge problems. Bengal need a way out, and fast.
  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. The team of scientists continue their research. The population redistribution continues. More oil and gas are extracted.
  • Onguayal work on their army and continue industrializing. More of Onguayal's fleet continues to be upgraded and Onguayal expands 45,000 km. Onguayal ask for any power in the Americas to aid their war as it seems that their efforts against the Fjordlaand is might stall.
  • Naya Bharat and Hindustan continue to connect up roads with the to states which have recently joined the colonies in a union. The colonies continue using the chemicals to increase rainwater, and many people begin to move inland. The colonies begin to draft the Federation declaration.
  • Sindu expands 110250 km south and eastward. The colony continues to see a wave of immigrants and around a million people immigrate to the country this year. The colony's use of chemicals has helped the environment, as many parts of the Sahara become options for farming. Small oasis' do especially well, as their plants expand into the now-water rich areas quickly.
  • Wonderlaand's general populace react negatively against General Neilssen's actions, and calls begin for his arrest. As the matter is debated, the foreign forces arrive and begin attacking Wonderlaand. In order to stop more innocent Wonderlaander citizens being killed in bombing raids against the country, the government order for General Neilssen and the other ultra-nationalist conspirators to be arrested and handed over to the ICHR to be tried for his crimes. General Neilssen is outraged and other ultra-nationalists try staging a coup to take over the country and fight back against the attacking nations, but they are stopped by Wonderlaand's military who see fighting back a sure fire way to destroy the nation. With Neilssen and the ultra-nationalists arrested and handed over to the ICHR/Denmark to be tried for the terrorist attacks, Wonderlaand sign a ceasefire with the Danish led forces. The pan-Scandinavian party in Wonderlaand begins to gain more popularity in Wonderlaand following the attacks and sense of national shame for having such extreme nationalists. The pan-Scandinavian party propose to Denmark merging Wonderlaand, Denmark and Sweden to form a new Kalmar union of Nordic states, each nation would be treated as equal in the union/federation. Other Nordic states like Norway and Fjordlaand could join the new Kalmar union too.

1958

Pro-Scandinavian Union parties win many seats in the Norwegian elections, but not enough to facilitate a merge. The next elections will be held in 1961. Fjordlaand and Iceland both show no signs of wanting to join such a union on account of their cultures being mixtures of Nordic and South American native and Mon respectively

You're really lucky I understand that this is just game otherwise I would nuke you. Denmark, Sweden, and Greenland already are equals. The fact that you don't like the name of the nations being Denmark meas nothing and the fact that it is named Denmark also doesn't mean the Denmark is oppressing Sweden or whatever. Denmark has absolutely no rights to do that. We're like three US states with some more states' rights.

And your name of a country argument is hardly a valid reason, I mean the name of the nations being the Kalmar union means nothing and the fact it is named the Kalmar union doesn't mean that the Kalmar union is oppressing Sweden, Denmark or Wonderlaand.
