Sorry for the late turn, guys. -Feud

  • Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak became the Second President of Turkey. Known to be a keen supporter of Socialism; he implemented laws in order to bring forth sweeping political, social and cultural reforms which would separate Turkey from Ottoman tradition and embrace Westernized way of living. However, Mustafa surely did not believe that a Westernized Turkey was bound to reach success for economic reforms too had to be implemented, although the premier maintained state interventionism in economy. This involved the construction of a cotton print factory and a Turkish aircraft factory at Istanbul as well as many factories through the nation. Many state-owned factories for agriculture and textile industries too were handed over to private owners which led to major industrial growth. Moreover, the Turkish textile industry soon rose to becoming the top one in Europe. Mustafa initiated the start of model farms which were set up in large number throughout the state, and in turn, privatized whilst the state itself invested its budget on construction of a railroad system to link the entire state of Turkey. The Central Bank of Turkey was established primarily to look over the exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves. However, the government was particular in nationalizing all Turkey tobacco farms in order to set about a complete monopoly over its export. Along with this, many major industries such as the armaments industry and the steel industry were nationalised, with the textile industry being the only industry not to become nationalised. Generally, Mustafa promoted literacy and education in Turkey, and had in total; invested 5% of the GDP for education. Moreover, being a Turkish Nationalist; he encouraged education in Turkish and was supportive of the spread of Turkish culture and a law was passed which made all schools (private or federal) following the same syllabus. But all the while, he made sure to keep maintain law and order in Turkey by initiating the establish of the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] which basically acted as an authoritarian force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion. The FESF was also kept as a secretive group to exist for counterintelligence missions. The Turkish military itself stood at 600,000 men due to conscription, and by now; it was equipped by modern German rifles. Turkey also served to export the large number of minerals, being abundant in chromite, boron, iron ore, copper. Meanwhile, fortifications established near the border with the USSR are dismantled. The Zafer Project, however, continues, aiming at establishing a major defence system to defend Turkey; concentrating on the complete defence of Turkish coastline and the Bosporus Straits in particular. The naval headquarters was at the same time, established at the Golden Horn and mass funding was given to strengthening the navy and the aerial forces. This leads to the naval forces expanding to 52 ships and a total of 30,000 marines. The air force stood at 670 aircraft, mainly consisting of fighters, bombers and transport units. With both French and Soviet technology at hand, Turkey develops its very own Atlay II Tank based off the French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The infantry itself was armed with German rifles where were now produced by the arms industry on regular bases. The construction of the port is termed a great success and investors are attracted from all over the world to invest in the Erdimir Port and by now it served as a great commercial port.. The population is met with a sharp and steady increase, reaching 17.5 million due to the success of Fevzis agricultural and industrial reforms. [Mil/Eco Turn]. Athens was finally captured, and victory in the war was secured. In the aftermath of the conquest of Athens, the young and excited Turkish troops committed atrocities against the local population for three days, raping the women and destroying a part of the city. However, later on ordered was restored. The people of Greece were addressed that they were equal members of the Republic of Turkey and would be treated equally and fairly. However, the Turks first had major Greek Nationalists executed before moving onto Greek General Alexandros PapagosFormer Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas, Interim Greek Prime Minister 'Alexandros Kolyzis ,  Greek King George II and Greek Prince Paul I. 'They were all executed without trial and a new puppet regime was established in Greece after the Treaty of Athens was signed with the puppet regime. Back at home, the nation had reached war fever and support for President Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak reached its peak.' 
    • ​Turkish Republic of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Prime Minister, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Prime Minister had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Prime Minister announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece.
  • Poland: Kasprzak and the Democrats have won the Civil War, thanks to the increased Soviet presence in Eastern Poland. Poplawski is hanged publicly in Brest-Litovsk, and Poland declares war on Germany. We ask for peace with France, and we also want peace and an alliance with the USSR, being strongly influenced by them. We mainly focus on defending against Germany and securing Danzig for Polish control. The military and infrastructure are improved, as they have been hurt by the civil war. The Polish Communist Party is formed, becoming one of four recognized parties in Poland (Democratic, Communist, Peace, and Radical). All Nationalist militants are put on trial, many being executed.
    • German Dip: Germany demands that the Poles withdraw from any offences and lay down their arms. The war in Eastern Europe is over.
  • Second Spanish Republic: After a long awaited, scheduled election, Niceto Alcalá-Zamora comes to power after a close vote. After Niceto talked with the mining corporations, the talks went extremely bad, and the value of the companies continues to drop. To add insult to injury, miners start to strike for higher wages and more healthcare benefits. He says in his inaugural speech "La industria minera en ruinas, sólo un liderazgo fuerte puede traer renovar el gran poder que tenía." which translates to "The Mining industry in in ruins, only strong leadership can bring renew the great power it had." "Niceto also states in his inguaral speech. España tiene el potencial para convertirse en una gran potencia en Europa, con el liderazgo correcto, economía y equilibrio militar." which translates to "Spain has the potential to become a great power in Europe, with the right leadership, economy, and military balance." Investments in the mining industry made by France and the USSR start to turn the economy around for the Republic of Spain. Rebuilding efforts continue in Galicia, to restore the area to the way it was before the nationalist rebellion. Meanwhile, seeing Portugal as a threat and supplier of the Nationalist rebels, have confirmed his retreat and Portuguese support. Tensions start to escalate over accusations between the two nations, and secretly an invasion is planned for sometime next year. After seeing France repel the German Fascists, Spain decides to do the same to its Fascist neighbor Portugal. After signing the peace treaty to end the conflict, a surprise attack on Portugal emerges, with Niceto Alcalá-Zamora saying "Fascist Portugal is always a danger to Spain and her people; It must be removed from power. Another offensive attempt is made into Portugal. [Mil/Econ Turn]
  • Iran: We offer the Spanish republic and Japan a trade agreement. The tension worldwide bring benefit as oil is in high demand. Tehran and the major cities are mostly modernized and the citizens of those cities start to appreciate the Western style of life with many investors having build shops, cinema, and theaters. The states buy several thousands agricultural machines and give them to the farmers to help them increase production. A national highway starts to be built in prediction of the future. The religious institution are firmly under government control. (By the way, Iran is not anywhere in the tier page).
    • Spanish Diplomacy: Spain agrees to trade coal and other minerals for Iran oil.
  • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the re-introduction of Chinese land back into the Republic.
  • Norway: We continue to be neutral. The KjM 22 has gone into limited service. The TaG 34 has now replaced all tanks of its caliber in our army, and research begins on installing an 88mm gun.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • Belgium: As we form out for Netherlands troops that they would plan to engage Antwerpen and Limburg, our troops would be really set to their defense. Antwerpen and Limburg towns will gone into halt. We surely to prepare for defence charge and maintain the difference for military. Brussels will start to modernize the cities. We surrender to Netherlands and occupy us as we wait to negotiate the peace with Germany to survive as Wallonia.
  • Mandatory Palestine: Large immigration of European Jews to the holy land continues. The government concentates its efforts to deal with the flood of Jewish immigrants fleeing the European conflict with the nation's economy being improved. The trans-highway network is completed. Efforts are also made to reduce tensions between the different ethnic groups after the Arab revolt. Nationalist movements begin to attract more and more attention with many political parties supporting these movements, recently the actions of the British administration have been hit with accusations of corruption and ineffectiveness further increasing the size nationalist movements. The New Palestine Party (NPP) wins the 1944 elections forming a coalition with Mapai (another Palestinian party) with this the government seeks to decide on independence with a referendum secluded for 1945 to decide the issue. We build up our military by 5000 bringing our total army size up to 60,000. More PAI Hoopoe are produced and used to enlarge our air force. (Military/Economic)
    • Transjordan: Infrastructure is improved. Archaeological expeditions are given the Emir's blessing allowing for many British expeditions to take place in the region. In light of recent laws and efforts in Palestine, Transjordan also puts in place a series of laws to reduce tensions between Muslims and Christians. The Emir increases the size of the Transjordanian army to 7000 (military/Economic)
  • German Reich: With the war taking one turn after another for the worse, Berlin decides its time to cut its losses in the East and in secret offers The Soviets a peace agreement leaving Poland to Soviet takeover as long as German territorial integrity is respected, and Germany promises to pay reparations to the Baltic States, One request, however, is made that Soviet forces help Germany crush the treacherous Poles and French in return for a 20 year nonaggression pact in Eastern Europe. German forces begin abandoning the Eastern Front to crush the Polish traitors and reserves are slowly built up to launch a counter offensive in an attempt to liberate the Rhineland from French occupation. Berlin states that it is open to negotiations with Paris but will not surrender an inch of German soil. industrial production in the Eastern parts of Germany slowly increase, and with a greater urgency German efforts to develop a nuclear weapon begin to expand greatly. The new StG 44 is developed as the first assault rifle in history. while in a desperate situation Berlin believes that it can turn the tides in the war should the Soviets go for the peace offer. Feelers are also sent to the U.S.A. to see if the Americans can broker a white peace between France and Germany without territorial loss. Out of anger for Poland's betrayal as the German troops start retreating the employ a policy of shoot on sight any Polish troops or armed civilians without taking prisoners as the long march back to Germany and to the defence of Danzig begins. The German high command develops plan Teuton a planned defence line along the Vistula and other major rivers in eastern Germany and Western Poland while peace feelers are sent out to the Soviets, and a second plan code named Operation Frederick is developed to move as many troops as possible West to liberate the Rhineland while leaving the east defendable. As many as three million troops are planned to be moved west along with the buk of the German armor and air force to break the French offence, once a peace deal with the Soviets is established. While the German people stand behind their government in this final stand to defend German independence and national pride, people have grown tired of the authoritarian and destructive nature of Prussian militarism, The Junta realizing that it needs to do something restores power to the Reichstag which agrees to continue the war effort as long as once the war is over the Junta will step down. German U-boats and cruisers engage French ships in the North Sea in alignment with Dutch vessels in the hope of breaking French naval strength and breaking France's will to fight. With the Soviets accepting peace German troops start shifting west in large numbers to confront the French and expel them from German soil. a small force of about 600,000 troops are left in Western Poland to hold down the areas and expel Polish insurgents. Large numbers of bombers and jets begin campaigning in the air of Western Germany and eastern France to gain air superiority. The German forces engage French troops along the Rhine with the first offence aimed at liberating the all important Ruhr Valley.
    • ​Brazil Secret Dip: We understand the German plight and along with our regular shipments we will increase resource and equipment shipments on a few conditions, Germany will provide her expertise in the Brazilio-Japanese nuclear research, provide specifications on her new Jet aircraft. We will also escort the German flotilla harbored in Santos back to German waters.
    • German secret Dip: In Berlin the government agrees to Brazil's terms and thanks Rio for their sympathy in Germany's darkest hours.
    • Brazil has a nuclear program? Seems kinda ridiculous to me.
    • There was some OTL research done in 1938 in Sao Paulo that I picked up. Can't say I'm anywhere close to developing a weapon or power independently. Hence co-operation to figure out where other nations are. So far it's really nuclear theory and a small heavy water plant. Nothing serious. I most certainly won't be the first nation with the bomb if that's what you're wondering. -Feud
  • Netherlands: We open a second front against Belgium, an amphibian front. 50.000 troops are used to invade the Belgian coast. (THIS MEANS TWO ALGOS FOR NETHERLANDS- BELGIUM). Peace talks are kept in mind and we continue the negotiations, but also continue the offensive to enforce our own terms.
  • I recommend changing troop numbers, that would be quite a major force ... that's like Mini D-Day. I say about half that would do. -Feud
  • Brazil: Brazil under Ramos begins to campaign for new elections. With the term about up in 1945 and a new election being needed, Ramos secures a significant size of the Communist populace with naming prominent Communist Dominic Jauo as his vice presidential candidate. This Communist, however, only wishes a few more prominent Communist policies and seeks to maintain the federal system of Brazil with no changes which leads to a growing popularity. Ramos runs on the platform of neutrality while his competitor - a no-name politician - names himself as competitor running on a more interventionist and militaristic ticket. The Nation itself greatly maintains its neutrality but begins to push for the end of the French war with the Germans citing a greater and looming "Soviet Threat" in Eastern Europe. The Brazilian military begins the development of various escort carriers holding about 40-50 Aircraft and plans to field about six of these smaller carriers and saving fleet carriers for more prominent operations. The Navy maintains a sub fleet now of about 40 submarines. The rest of the fleet also continues to grow and an organized battle doctrine for the fleet is developed avoiding Japan's "Decisive battle doctrine" and focusing on efficient and organized strikes against numerically superior foes focused mostly on European navies and on the off chance the American navy becomes an enemy. The Brazilian air force continues to develop as well with more paratrooper planes being built. The Training of the Airborne Rangers continues as they make a daring training jump into the Amazons to test their mettle. This is resoundingly successfully and the Airborne make a name for themselves as a potential contended for Brazil's most clandestine service. However, this is contended almost immediately by the development of the Naval Special Warfare Program which begins pulling elite men from nearly all branches into the secretive and well equipped "Espadas". This force is trained in nearly all potential aspects of warfare and they are to be developed specialists in nearly every military combat field if possible. The Brazilian Army using open fields and hills in southern Brazil undergoes heavy training missions practicing wargames with their own men in order to train. A Prominent Brazilian General, Josef Roussef is the developer of Brazil's new "Shock Strike" doctrine which uses greater maneuverability and combined arms to push through enemy lines and fight. At a major disadvantage he beats two other competing generals in the wargames and earns recognition from Nereu Ramos for this. The Brazilian fleet Carrier continues construction and is to be finished in a few months. The Brazilian nuclear research continues with major developments occuring in the power field but not the bomb field. However, the refining process begins with the possibility of a bomb in 1948-1950 being a possibility. The Brazilian population reaches about 45.6 million with the vast living quality increase contributing to a new boom in children. Under the agreement with the Germans, a Brazilian Fleet consisting of the Fleet Carrier San Salvaçao and the battleship Rio Grande Do Sul accompanied by 15 destroyers, seven Frigates, five Cruisers, two Heavy Cruisers, and five underwater Submarine Escorts escorts the German fleet to German waters claiming Neutrality the whole way flying a diplomatic flag the whole way and speaking with French captains on this situation. We request that France not interfere in the escort mission as it revolves around an economic deal with the Germans and we have no wish to fight the French.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to develop with a push in the oil refining industry making major gains, other pushes such as moderate commodities are produced as well and Venezuela begins to advance minorly in industry. The Rubber industry begins to take off thanks to Brazilian investment as well. The Navy continues to development and Argentina is thanked for the building of a light carrier for them. Venezuela offers to let Brazil establish another base on the border of Venezuela and Colombia to make up for another supply point up into Guatemala. The Government prepares for elections as well. 
    • Guyanan Confederation: Brazilian settlers continue to settle within Guyana this time more civilians than military families. The many Brazilians have been coming for work in the bauxite and manganese mining and in some cases gold mining. The Brazilian population continues to grow significantly with the possibility of becoming the majority in less than ten years time. The development of cities increases as private investment from Brazilian companies looks to expand a coastal city into a major port city along the coast of Brazil. The Parliament of Guyana elects nearly 25% Brazilians into the Parliament. More people assimilate and the population grows to about 500,000.
  • Australia: Australia continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved.
  • Switzerland: Continues the same course of action. The military is reduced by another 15,000 troops.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi Economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 70,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer.
    • Kingdom of Yemen: The Military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. Oil profits also allow for the purchase of arms from other nations.
  • United Kingdom: The Communist forces storm London this year. Parliament is sacked and the royal family flees to Canada. By May, the gunshots stop. The fighting is over. The Communists win the war. The United Kingdom is renamed to People's Union of Britain. For the first time in centuries, Westminster sits vacant. There is no king, no queen. Only the people of Britain. Almost immediately, reforms begin to keep the empire intact. They realize that forcing the people of every colony to adopt Communism would be difficult. They consider letting some of the colonies go. The economy improves. The French invasion of Germany is condemned. France is given an ultimatum: leave the Rhineland or be faced with war.
    • Guatemala requests to purchase British Honduras.
  • South Africa: South Africa forces in south Angola have all but destroyed the Portuguese troops in the colony, and consolidated most of the region under South African control. The ANC has prepared the ground for government expansion into Angola, gaining the loyalty of the Angolan chieftains and their tribes, and negotiating the construction of public infrastructure in Angola. The development of rocket technology proceeds nicely, with several prototypes developed by the military for testing. Short-range rockets have since been tested in the western regions of South Africa, with load capacity and accuracy being the primary areas the military is seeking to refine. The Perdebye Mark I rocket is serving as the current design for the test rockets of the military. Plans to miniaturize the technology is underway. The SANEC continues with its nuclear development research, expanding the number of heavy water reactors in construction in South Africa from one to five to assist in the research progress. The South African air force is expanded to include new Valk I fighter-bombers, as well as newly redesigned Aasvoël II fighters, which boast higher flight ceilings, greater speeds, and superior fuel reserves. 150 Valk I's and 300 Aasvoël II's are currently under production throughout the nation. With the development of rocketry, some South African scientists begin exploring the possibility of placing them on aircraft. Education of the Black African population of that country has greatly increased the economic output of South Africa. With a larger number of qualified men and women entering into the workforce, South Africa is now able to expand industries such as automotive, aerospace, and hydroelectric industries into parts of the nation once too poor and undereducated to take full advantage of these modern industries. With the net profit of many companies expanding to lines once considered impossible within extra manpower, many white businessmen begin to agree with ANC members that allowing blacks into the economy with greater independence may indeed prove beneficial to the nation, and more importantly, their bottom-lines. Progression on the nation's aircraft carriers continue with great progress, especially with the information of the Brazilians' power projection abilities fully realized now. With the Communist revolution in Great Britain, Prime Minister Smuts of South Africa begins traveling throughout British Africa, and making the case to his fellow Commonwealth leaders that Communism is a threat to freedom and democracy. First on his list of leaders is Prime Minister Godfrey Huggins of Southern Rhodesia, who is seeking to establish a federated state within the former British Empire. South Africans state that the current Communist government in Great Britain is illegitimate, and that South Africa does not recognize the government occupying London, and henceforth withdraws from the British aegis until the restoration of the monarchy. Taking advantage of its relationship with Great Britain, several South African businessmen begin offer to host hundreds of politicians, military officers, and businessmen from Britain as Communists take over the country. Though South Africa maintains military parity with Brazil, many South African citizens fear that Brazil may have wide ambitions, which may include Portuguese Africa as a potential target.
  • I highly doubt your parity with me. Also, too early for rockets for a nation that lacks the expertise. Try again in a few years. Also you have about 11 million total people don't expect any power projection outside of Africa anytime soon. -Feud
    • South-West Africa: As the power of the native population in South-West Africa continues to grow, many believe that the name of the nation is a throwback of the colonial era, and formally request the changing of the nation's name from South-West Africa to Namibia. The Parliament of South Africa states that it will review the request and provide a response in the following months. Expansion of the industries of South-West Africa continues, with the development of the nation's military industries, taking advantage of the desert location and the relative security it provides. Economic expansion slows down for the time being, stabilizing to a flat 2.1% growth of the economy annually. as the population of South-West Africa begins to slow.
    • Angola: The South Africans establish a regional government for Angola in the city of Namibe, where the First Minister of Angola will conduct his business in the new territory of South Africa. The first steps of the new government are to establish a military force in union with the SADF, importing military equipment and technology for the armed forces. All schools, hospitals, and public facilities are transferred from the control of the SADF to the new Angolan government, and a census immediately taken to assist the government in establishing its planned budget for the year. A total of 2,301,455 inhabitants in south Angola with a current GDP per capita of $417. South African businessmen begin moving into the area in preparation for planned investment into Angola.
  • Argentina: The government is concerned with recent events in the UK, due to the proximity of the Falkland Islands. Three of the five tank landing ships are completed for the Brazilians, and the Venezuelan Aircraft Carrier is 25% complete. A tank landing ship is laid down for the Uruguayan Navy. Nuclear research continues as does work on a helicopter. Plans for a submarine are almost finished. Another dozen test flights of the jet fighter are completed. Three are failures with fuel flooding the engine and smothering it. The aircraft is taken back in for repairs and to fix a leaking fuel pump. On the ground, ejection systems are completed and are successful as are the new weapon systems. Three 20mm cannon are mounted, and racks for up to five slots are on board. It can carry an assortment of rockets, bombs and fuel tanks. The bomber plan is underway with modifications to a passenger aircraft, adding gun pods, stronger engines, as well as a bomb bay, and other electronics and avionics. Work on a helicopter is turned over to private hands to prevent the government from over extending itself. Another 24 fighter planes are manufactured for Uruguay. Due to the coup in the UK, the Argentinean government bans Communist parties. Most Communists join the Socialist Party which begins to be heavily monitored. (Mil/Eco Turn)
    • Uruguay: Our Navy receives two destroyers for our Navy. Work begins connecting our transportation system with Argentina's and Brazil's. The economy begins to integrate into Argentina's as well, and the economy begins to recover from the Great Depression. Public spending increases as revenue from lumber and fish comes into the nation. The Uruguayan Congress affirms trade, defense, and political treaties with Argentina. Communists are monitored due to the situation in the UK, but are otherwise left alone. (Mil/Inf Turn)
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union celebrates the death of the Polish traitors and the armistice signed with the Germans, and now the Soviet military aims to take full advantage of the situation and gain both revenge and retribution for its sacrifices. The Soviet military, still relatively fresh from its offenses in eastern Poland, begin to take the fight to the rest of the country to ensure that the new Communist government is in as much control as possible. With Germany focusing on the parts that they withdrew to, the Soviets along with their new Polish Communist allies make moves on other cities like Warsaw, Krakow and Lublin, threatening to siege any that don't submit to the new Communist authority. In addition to that, Soviet forces occupy Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia, liberating them after the successful operation that drove the Germans out of the Soviet Union. The Soviet industrial machine continues to work at a wartime pace, as the war is still not over, and rocket launchers and T-34s are continuously produced for the war effort. Planes are as well, and research into nuclear weapons and jet engines, as well as rockets, continues. When the offensive against Poland is over, the Soviet government plans to take the fight against Finland next, in order to bring the Eastern Front to a total close.
    • Tuva: Tuva continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. 
    • Mongolia: Continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. Until then, Mongolian forces continue to prepare and train in case war breaks out in the far east. 
    • East Turkestan: East Turkestani officials continue to talk with Soviet and Chinese officials in peace talks. Until the outcome of such talks, the military continues to train and prepare in case war breaks out. 
    • Polish Diplomacy: Poland asks the USSR to look at our proposal in the Treaty of Lublin. We think that it will suit you, while retaining our independence. We definitely are now influenced by you, and we will become Communist, but we would like to retain sovereignty. 
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Guatemala continues to fortify its border with Mexico, while the military is upgraded and modernized. Specially trained Guatemalan units begin to cross the border secretly, and set about fomenting unrest in Chiapas and the Yucatan. They also begin to arm disgruntled peasants and encourage them to organize into Soviets to facilitate resistance. Many accept, and a guerrilla movement begins to form. The economy improves, and industrialization and agricultural diversification continue. Mosquitia and El Salvador do the same. The government lauds the coup in the UK, and asks to purchase Belize.
  • The United States maintains its position of neutrality in the war but remains concerned about the situation in Britain. The government officially invites the British government-in exile (i.e., royals and whatever is left of the government) refugee status in America and the country goes on alert in case Canada goes red. There is massive military build up and the Manhattan Project is accelerated in the likely event that the United States might go to war. It is raised to great priority in the armed forces and great progress is made due to concern about the rapid growth of Communism. President Wallace announces his plans to run for a second term and the Republicans nominate New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey. Former President Roosevelt publicly declares that Communism is a threat to the world and encourages America to support the war against Communism. As public sentiment moves toward the German side, the government is hard pressed to consider their options, so America asks France to come to the table with Germany and discuss the possibility of achieving status quo ante bellum and bring peace to the continent of Europe. The President states that Communism is the greatest threat to democracy and formally ends relations with the former nation of the United Kingdom. The American embassy to the former UK is closed and all American personnel are recalled home. Since America is now encouraging France to reach a peace with Germany, America cuts off aid to both sides of the war but discusses the potential of officially aiding Germany. However, we continue to encourage peace. 
  • Canada basically we do the same things as before. More fighters, work on the destroyers, watch the rest of the world in general and the UK in particular with concern, and stay neutral. Really nothing else to say at the moment.

1944.5

This is your 1944.5 Algo Report by PitaKang (sponsored by Scrawland Scribblescratch: Drink Responsibly)

France pushes into Germany but is stalled.

Greece capitulates. President controversy between two candidates?!

Portugal will fall next year to Spain. What will they do with their #4 draft pick?

USSR takes Poland. Poland will be demoted next year.

Netherlands pushes deeper into Belgium.

With the establishment of the People's Union of Britain, the British Empire begins to collapse around the world. In the Americas, the local government of Newfoundland refuses to accept the PUB and instead asks to join Canada. Guyana declares its independence as the Republic of Guyana and it asks to join the Venezuelan-Brazilian bloc. In Asia, the Raj declares independence and the Republic of India is formed. However, Muslims in the west and east immediately declare independence from India and Burma also declares independence from India. This leads to the start of the Indian Civil War. Egypt declares independence as well under King Farouk I.Mandatory Palestine also declares independence and Transjordan follows suit. Iraq also declares independence.

 The following player territories may also declare independence: Canada, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Also I think it would all right if Saudi Arabia went after Yemen and some of the other things in the region but take your time.

I'm gonna handle this story arc. Had this planned out. Plus, too early for things to revolt, yadda yadda.

Yes, you planned out the revolt of your massive territories which are large in number. 

Does that sound so odd?

It's de facto gone ahead in several player events over several turns so it's a done fact now.The River Nile-2 (talk) 13:05, April 28, 2015 (UTC)

Hey guys I have 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 dollars that I won but now owe to someone. Don't worry, I'll get pay them back.

That's what I would do if I were a capitalist. You're catching on.

GG guys, GG...

  • Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 58%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. This profit gained from expanding these industries led to a general mindset developed to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region and were quite well off on their own. In contrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry upon which proved quite beneficial is maintaining Turkey self-sufficient whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and the state continued to invest upon the construction of a railroad system to complete link Turkey. An already existing railroad system in Greece certainly proved beneficial to the Turks as they were able to examine the Greek models and reconstruct their own. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established basically acted as a police to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and was directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as to serve as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 20,000, the air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plan to construct a fleet carrier were on way although technological support from the USSR was required. However, the technological support that had already been provided was considered enough to bring about mass changes in the Turkish naval forces. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was disbanded and quickly replaced with the modern Soviet Yakovlev Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighter and the Soviet Lavochkin L-5 and Petlyavok Pe-3 bombers. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Russia and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as the German rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. With the Communist Revolution in Britain and the collapse of the United Kingdom, Turkey requested the British Royal Family that had fled to Canada for the purchase of Cyprus. Meanwhile, Iraq independence groups are funded albeit secretly.
    • ​Turkish Republic of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Prime Minister, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Prime Minister had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Prime Minister announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. 
  • Ethiopia: Seeing the collapse of the British Empire we seize British Somaliland stating ethnic reasons. We add the province to the Somali region of Ethiopia and tell the people that you are finally free from the Europeans. We request peace from France in return for payments and economic privileges. We would also like to be included in the peace talks to ratify our faith. We continue to industrialize and begin demobilizing in hope France accepts our deal.
  • British Empire never collapsed. Also, you're going to need an algo.
    • French Dip: We agree to peace as long as we are given monetary gains to repay for the damages caused by the Ethiopians, as they had declared war on us.
    • Agreed
  • Guatemala continues to fortify its border with Mexico, while the military is upgraded and modernized. Specially trained Guatemalan units begin to cross the border secretly, and set about fomenting unrest in Chiapas and the Yucatan. They also begin to arm disgruntled peasants and encourage them to organize into Soviets to facilitate resistance. Many accept, and a guerrilla movement begins to form. The economy improves, and industrialization and agricultural diversification continue. Mosquitia and El Salvador do the same. Guatemala again asks to buy British Honduras. It also requests trade agreements with the Dominican Republic and Cuba. (Mod Response for Cuba/Dominican)
  • British Dip: We are considering selling Honduras in the upcoming years. Please bear with us in this time of change.
  • Mexico: Infrastructure development begins, while military buildup also continues. Our forces begin a rapid crackdown on unrest along Chiapas and Yucatan, while one of the conspirators, unknown to the government of Mexico, asks for Guatemalan and Brazilian support. The coup is scheduled to start on December 12, 1944. However, in the months prior, a small special ops team is spotted entering the border during a crackdown operation, and most are eliminated, and one is captured and interrogated. However, no useful data is acquired, but we suspect this to be Guatemala, on account of his dialect. While he current leadership is enraged, the conspirators reschedule the coup to November, and on November 5th, 1944, the coup is started. While the capital quickly falls, the loyalists begin to open fire, and thus the Mexican Civil War begins, with the conspirators asking for help from Guatemala and Brazil.
    • Gentlemen? Feel free to dispose of the implausibilities in this turn.
    • Guatemala offers full support to the conspirators, including as many troops as they may need, weapons, and loans to raise troops.
    • The United States sends aid to the loyalists to ensure a friendly government across the border. Troops and weaponry are sent to help them as well as boats and all.
    • Brazil Dip: We do not condone the Coup by the rebel forces but will recognize them if they gain power. We respect a nations ability to self determine its government and will not interfere. Secret: An opportunist Brazilian general has some "Damages equipment scrapped" and in reality it is sent to the Coup forces in Mexico.
  • Argentina: We annex the Falklands from the British. Most of the British citizens move to South Africa and Canada. The military finishes orders for the Brazilian Navy, and the Venezuelan Aircraft Carrier is 70% complete. The government finishes infrastructure projects. The jet fighters are completed, and four are commissioned for the Air Force. Three bombers are finished. Work on a helicopter continues. Work on nuclear weapons continues, and without aid, the bomb will be developed by 1951. The Army receives another 50 infantry tanks, and the Marines receive 20 light infantry tanks. Work continues on designing a submarine, and laying down is planned for 1946. (Eco/Inf turn)
    • Uruguay: The economy continues recovering. 50 light infantry tanks are transferred from the Argentinean Army to the Uruguayan Army. A tank landing ship is received for the Navy. (Eco/Inf turn)
    • You were never given access to the combined program yet, just request it. -Feud

  • German Reich: Berlin determined to liberate the Rhineland offers France 600 million Papiermarks over a period of 20 years in exchange for their withdrawal from the Rhineland, and an end to hostilities. despite the offer German forces continue to amass for a second offence aimed at liberating the Rhineland. despite the exhaustion and hunger spreading throughout Germany nationalism a sense of national pride keeps the struggling Reich up. Industrialization of Silesia begins in earnest as the need to supply goods and machinery to a battered army and people grows. The Final offence known as Operation Freidrich Is launched in a final ditch effort to expel the French from the Rhineland to back the diplomatic front. Anti-Polish sentiment is at an all time high as most of the population blames the Poles for the loss of the war. Public lynchings in East Prussia, Silesia and other areas begin, and those suspected of supporting the Communists or Poles are rounded up by the military. Troops march Into Posen and West Prussia before the Soviets can march in to take over and free the Germans living there. The Junta falls apart in a bloodless putsch led by more moderate members of the high command amongst them one Erwin Rommel, and Marshall Gunderian led the way for a new junta that decides to bring back the Reichstag as an official power in the Reich and formally agrees to help restore democracy to Germany in the post war in a private session of the Reichstag. Many of the old guard flee Germany amongst them Oskar von Hindenburg who asks Brazil for sanctuary. The new government decides to continue the previous regime's scientific programs realizing the potential of the nuclear weapon an rockets. The first V-1 rocket is developed and ready for testing, In a secret meeting with American ambassadors the new government requests that the U.S.A. help Germany rebuild in exchange Berlin will allow American influence in Germany to grow and exchange German technology developed during the war. The act of enabling is voided. Austria is formally recognized as a state of the Reich and not just a territory with an additional 20 seats being added to the Reichstag and Bundestag for them and another 50 seats being added in total to the Reichstag to help pave the way for a more equal Reich. more jet planes are built and development of more efficient tanks and ASPC's begin. storage of Reichmarks and gold begins to help fuel the planned reconstruction of the reich. With the Rhineland liberated after years of French abuse people are cheering but seeing the destruction and exploitation caused by the French in the Ruhr, Saar and the Rhineland in general a common phrase comes into use throughout Germany "Nie Wieder" (Never Again). The new government makes a lot of speeches in the Rhineland about standing together to see a brighter tomorrow, and to never again let another power determine the destiny of the German people, these words resonate strongly in the Rhineland. A large amount of troops are relocated to the French border to ensure that no other incursions occur. and Large scale conscription of civilians to serve as labourers to help rebuild the destroyed Rhineland begins, with a lot of soldiers being recommissioned to serve in the work groups. The mass expulsion of Poles from Eastern Germany and the occupied Posen and West Prussia regions, German offences to wipe out the remnants of Polish resistance in German occupied areas begins so to secure the border region. While all Germans living outside the borders of the Reich are invited to move to Germany and are promised jobs, and homes. Those leaders of the old Junta who didn't flee the country are captured and imprisoned for trial at a later time under the charges of sparking a war Germany couldn't win, and for treason by allowing the French to rape the Rhineland, the economic Heartland of Germany. A series of New laws are drafted to further the democratization of the Reich. Major efforts to further the development of German tech continue. Several industrialists in the Rhineland and Silesia see the peace as a way to start a new without the restrictions of the old regime, the so called Bundeswagen group is founded. Development of radar, and electronic technology continues particularly stealth tech.
    • French Dip: We agree to the monetary tribute to end the war between our two nations
    • Poland: We ask Germany to end its genocide of Poles and let all ethnic Poles return to Poland. In exchange, we will withdraw from Danzig.
    • German Dip: The German government refuses Polish terms and will only negotiate with the Soviets as Berlin no longer recognizes the Poles as a state. 
    • Turkish Diplomacy: President Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak visits the German Reich, hoping that the relations between Germany and Turkey which had previously worsened under Germany's Anti-Communist regime could possibly be repaired.
    • German Dip: The Turkish president is welcomed and Berlin agrees to open up talks. The Reich expresses deep interest in improving German Turkish economic ties specially with a path into Iraq now open. 
    • Turkish Diplomacy: The Turkish President admits his interest in improving economic ties between the German Reich and the Turkish Republic however, he strongly believes that the German Reich would've to respect Turkish neutrality and must refrain from pushing Turkey into any military pact as the previous German regime had attempted to do. The Turkish Premier moreover calls upon his German counterpart to respect the relation between USSR and Turkey and that any attempt by German to weaken these relations would result in a befitting response.
  • France: With the war drawing close to an end, the French army holds in the Ruhr and Rhineland abusing it to power their current war machine. Though peace had been met during the time they had been waiting for the terms to be hashed out and the official treaty to be signed. While the French military had been sitting and waiting, the Germans used this opportunity to launch an offensive to reclaim the lost industry in the Ruhr and Rhineland. The Germans are successful in pushing back the French our if major areas, though total ejection of the French of the Ruhr was predicted to take another three months. With the war officially ending with the terms affirmed between the French and German politics, those who served and saw combat are advised to head home and live the rest of their lives with their families. Meanwhile, those who did not see combat are brought into the fore front of the military, along with the reserves moving into full active duty. The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves being planned to be raised. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. (Military/Economy turn)
  • Poland: We begin by saying that we have banned all nationalist, capitalist, and militarist parties. Only two parties remain: The Democratic Party, which is led by Cyryl Kasprzak, and the Communist Party. The Democratic Party has more Marxist views, believing in complete control of the workers. The Communist Party is more Leninist, believing in the rule of intellectuals. The democrats are currently in power, and he appoints workers to many positions of power. We ask the USSR to retain our independence, as we have different cultures, ethnic groups, and languages, and sign the Treaty of Lublin. We would, however, like to enter their influence and have their help to kill all anti-Communists. We hope to be allies, along with any other socialist and Communist countries. We offer Wilno and surrounding land to the USSR (or Lithuania if that's what the USSR chooses). We also ask for help from France, Britain, and th USSR to help secure the border with Germany, as they are amidst a genocide, and we continue our struggles with the Germans. We ask Germany to deport all Polish nationals to Poland, rather than kill them, and we withdraw from Danzig.
    • German Dip: German forces begin expelling all Poles living within the Reich and occupied western Poland into the wartorn areas of Eastern and Central Poland. cases of summary executions are common. 
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the reintroduction of Chinese land back into the Republic. We demand France to hand over rightly Chinese territories.
    • ​German Dip: Germany extends diplomatic support to China for the return of concessions which France and Britain hold at the present. The German embassy in Nanjing also offer China a trade agreement. 
  • Second Spanish Republic: After a long awaited, scheduled election, Phillip Ferdinand comes to power after a close vote. After Ferdinand talked with the mining corporations, the talks went extremely bad, and the value of the companies continues to drop. To add insult to injury, miners start to strike for higher wages and more healthcare benefits. He says in his inaugural speech "La industria minera en ruinas, sólo un liderazgo fuerte puede traer renovar el gran poder que tenía." which translates to "The Mining industry in in ruins, only strong leadership can bring renew the great power it had." "Ferdinand also states in his inguaral speech. España tiene el potencial para convertirse en una gran potencia en Europa, con el liderazgo correcto, economía y equilibrio militar." which translates to "Spain has the potential to become a great power in Europe, with the right leadership, economy, and military balance." Investments in the mining industry made by France and the USSR start to turn around the economy for the Republic of Spain. Rebuilding efforts continue in Gallicia, to restore the area to the way it was before the nationalist rebellion. Meanwhile, seeing Portugal as a threat and supplier of the Nationalist rebels, have confirmed his retreat and Portuguese support. Tensions start to escalate over accusations between the two nations, and secretly an invasion is planned for sometime next year. After seeing France repel the German Fascists, Spain decides to do the same to its Fascist neighbor Portugal. After signing the peace treaty to end the conflict, a surprise attack on Portugal emerges, with Philipe Ferdinand saying "Fascist Portugal is always a danger to Spain and her people; It must be removed from power. The last offensive takes place against Lisbon, hoping to topple the Fascist regime in the final battle. Meanwhile, income from the mining industry rises, and tech modernization continues. Spain asks United States if they could purchase American technology, to help modernize the nations technical level. The monarchist party also starts to gain followers, with almost 31% of the populations either registered or supporting the party. Spain also shows its relations to the UK government in exile, giving them moral support to stay strong for the people of the commonwealth. [Mil/Econ Turn]
  • Brazil: In the developing situation in Europe - particularly the Communist revolt in Britain - Brazilian marines tentatively move on British Guyana painlessly and peacefully ordering stability and declaring it an protected territory for the time being. Brazil also moves on some of Britain's other island possessions to restore some semblance of order. Brazil requests the United States occupy the Bahamas and protect it or designate it as a US territory. The list of occupied and protected territories are as follows, British Guyana, windward, leeward, and virgin islands, Jamaica and pretty much everything south of the Bahamas. Brazil develops a transitional government group to handle the future of these territories. The Brazilian government issues its own recognitions of full independence to all British Dominions Particularly South Africa which has shown great rivalry with Brazil for no reason. We request South Africa come to negotiation table to normalise foreign relations between Brazil and her South American partners and the State of South Africa. Brazilian military forces are put on a higher alert as the potential for rogue British ships to attack whoever whenever becomes a real threat. The Brazilian navy in particular is put on high alert as their escort fleet to Europe returns. The Patrol force is extended all the way across the Atlantic just north of Angola to cover shipping lanes. In particular the navy is able to make great progress in developing the shipping route protection forces. The Brazilian army and air force continues to develop now with more access to German technology particularly their more advanced jet engines. These jet engines as well as full design schematics for the ME 262 are put to practice and about ten prototype F-270 aircraft are put to the test with dog fighting, speed tests, and endurance tests being put on the aircraft. The various flaws recognized in the ME 262 were caught and fixed and the main issue still remains fuel consumption by the jet engines. The Engines are also considered for mounting on Brazil's long range bombers as a new model. The Brazilian military does a review putting its Army strength at about 350,000 soldiers in the army, 120,000 in the Air Force, and 250,000 for the navy/marine corps combined. This puts the military at a peacetime force of about 720,000 with the general ability to field the "Active reserve" of 480,000 and a "Resting Reserve" of another two million that could be deployed in a state of heavy war. The Brazilian navy launches its newest Fleet Carrier the San Salvaçao. The Brazilian industrial development continues with major gains being made as the real potential of catching up to the great industrial power Japan becoming a real possibility. This catch up is supposed to happen by 1946. The Brazilian nuclear research continues with German input and science managing to spur Brazilian research ahead . This facilitates the technology to begin the enrichment of Uranium which puts the Joint program ahead of many nations (except the US) by a good amount. Rocketry research also skyrockets thanks to friendly input from German scientists which facilitates the tests of Brazil's first rocket. This expertise is learned by Brazilian scientists to be put to use. Brazil officially requests to purchase all of British territory south of Cuba (minus Honduras) in order to protect order and prevent civil chaos within the western hemisphere. We also have already provided humanitarian support for any potential lacks of supplies to these territories. We also inform the British that these occupations will end if the British truly wish us to but we wish to see these territories transferred over to our control for sums of money, etc. Brazil officially offers sanctuary to many of the old guard in Germany and offers to put them up in housing as well. With no response from the new Communist government in Britain and a payment to renounce these claims the Brazilians begin to exercise their sovereignty over these new territories.
    • Venezuela: Amazed by the issues in Great Britain of all places the Venezuelans support Brazil's protection and occupation of British territories and also endorse the Argentinian annexation of the Falklands. The Venezuelan oil industry continues to take off as do moderate commodities industry. A Brazilian automotive manufacturer sets up shop in Venezuela. The Venezuelan navy begins to develop a bit more as well and purchases carrier aircraft from Brazil for its future light carrier. The Venezuelan elections are set to take place. Economics between Venezuela and the rest of South America begin to integrate a bit more
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Confederation begins to develop a bit more becoming ever more intertwined with the Brazilian economy. Brazilian population continues to increase as Brazilian immigration promotes heavy urban growth. The coastal port project begins with the search for a suitable port being undergone. The Brazilian military within Guyana expands as the potential for rougue former british ships attacking the coast over supplies or anger over the British Guyana Seizure.
    • Canadian Diplomacy We offer the Republic of Brazil a deal: The UK Government in Exile will formally renounce our rights to the British Islands of the Caribbean for a loan of $75 million to help resettle the refugees from the UK and bases for the British military forces that fled their homeland.
    • Brazil Dip: This is acceptable (in WW2 era of money 75 million then would be rather exorbitant) We also request the same for Guyana.
    • Canadian Dip: Guyana as well. Thank you for shopping at the actual government of Great Britain/British Empire, have a nice day!
    • German Dip: Germany thanks Brazil for the aid it extended to Germany during it darkest hour and in return offers Brazil a gift in the form of statue showing a German and Brazilian shaking hands with the words bellow "Friends are always remembered", apart from that the new German Kanzler Josef Wirmer also travels to Brazil to discuss the possibilities of an alliance with Brazil as Germany begins looking for allies outside of Europe.
    • British Dip: We will consider.
    • South African Dip: On behalf of Prime Minister Smuts of South Africa, the South African people are pleased to accept the recognition of the Brazilian people of the South African nation. We shall consider the normalization of relations between our two nations, but for the time being, we shall open a consulate in the city of Rio de Janeiro for the co-ordination of foreign talks between South Africa and Brazil until a time when a proper embassy can be established in the country.
  • Canada: With the collapse of the United Kingdom and the fleeing of the Royal Family and those that do not wish to serve the new Red Menace, Canada is quickly flooded with refuges, many of whom just suffered a week long voyage on over crowded merchant and Royal Navy ships fleeing the revolts and the establishment of the Union of Britain. A political crisis develops: the Governor General refuses to give up his position to King Edward VIII, and opinion in Canada is against the "King that lost Britain." Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King decides to settle this with a huge, sweeping "British Imperial Reform Act." King Edward VIII reluctantly agrees to abdicate the throne, and his brother, Prince Albert, is to be offered the crown, which he accepts as King George VI. The colonies of the British Empire that are still willing to follow the House of Windsor/a remnant government of the UK are immediately announced as self-governing Dominions, and given full rights under the Statute of Westminster that basically made Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the other Dominions independent in 1931. Newfoundland is given the choice to join Canada or remain independent via referendum (MODS: How do I algo? The former colonies/new Dominions can then agree to join Canada in establishing the Commonwealth of Nations, an economic, cultural and political (but not military) alliance to help build up their economies and stabilize their governments. And, just to stick to the new Union of Britain, we refuse to accept their illegal seizure of power, and maintain that the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is still a functioning nation (AKA, no diplo representation, and there is a UK "government in exile" in Canada. Canada cancels the contract for the Marten fighter production, and the construction of the rest of the Provincial class ships are put on hold as we have more pressing issues, such as the settling of refuges, and all spare public money is diverted to infrastructure and housing for the waves of British refugees. (MODS AND CRIM: How many refugees do I have to deal with? Do I have any advanced British research? Also, do I have any parts of a "loyalist" Royal Navy/the Army/RAF? And how many of the former colonies might agree to join my Commonwealth?)
    • I'd personally say at least half the Royal navy would flee to Canada, and potentially millions of refugees. It would be like Saigon, almost all people would flee to Canada, and the Pacific fleets would go to Aussie and NZ. As for colonies that's to be discussed with more than just one mod. -Feud
    • To be honest, if you give me millions of refugees now, Canada, (population about 12 million now) will basically economically collapse, unless we get a lot of help from other nations. As much as I would love the increase in my population, I have to call implausible there. -TB
    • No way half the royal navy flees to Canada. I'd say 20% would be stretching it.
    • German Dip: Berlin extends a hand of friendship to the new seat of British power and hopes to build long relations with Canada. 
    • Canadian Dip: Canada welcomes a relationship with Germany, and hope that our working together could lead to a peaceful world ... and maybe reclaim Britain for the Commonwealth.
    • Guatemala: Asks to purchase British Honduras, and will allow the British government-in-exile to more or less name its price.
    • Canadian Dip: Canada and the British Government in Exile offer British Honduras for $3 million USD. (Too much? I dunno)
    • Argentinean Dip: We request to purchase all of the UK's southern islands, including the Falklands, St Helena, Tristan da Cunha, South Georgia, and and South Sandwich Islands. We recognize Canada and the British Government in Exile as the official representative to the United Kingdom and successor state to the British Empire.
    • Turkey Diplomacy: Turkey extends an olive branch to the British Royal Family in Canada and recognizes them as the true seat of the British Empire whilst the Communists that have taken power in London are rejected. Now let's get to the business XD, Turkey expresses its desire to purchase the island of Cyprus from the British authorities for whatever price put forward as it is in the interests of Turkey to secure the Gulf of Iskenderun. The British army and navy deployed at the island of Cyprus would be granted safe passage back to Canada if the British authorities sell Cyprus to Turkey.
    • Guatemala accepts the offer and agrees to pay three million for British Honduras.
  • 'Netherlands: 'We offer peace to Belgium if we get the entirety of Flanders (with Brussels being under joint control). We have been defeating the Belgians and Antwerpen, Hasselt and Gent have already fallen to us, and our forces are at the gates of Brussels. We have no interest in Wallonia and also immediately with this offer a 20-year NAP to the Belgians, and economical support for the next 20 years. The territories taken by us are not yet annexed, and are currently in a sort special status for a few months. Jan de Wit gains immense popularity, and with the elections being next year, it is practically already decided that he will be the Raadspensionaris, as there are no real challengers. He is celebrated especially because we are considered the only true victors of the war, alongside the USSR, as we are the only ones who have achieved our goals.
    • I personally think it would not make much sense for Belgium to give up its own capital. if you're capable of inflicting the same type of defeat upon Belgium as was inflicted upon Germany in WWII, you could probably take away Brussels. Otherwise, you should most likely try to do what was to happen to Istanbul in the Treaty of Sevres. In this case, just take away Flanders from Belgium and have Brussels turned into a free zone. "It's not going to suck itself." 10:08, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
    • Edited
    • Belgium Dip: We accept the offer for the entirety of Flanders and accept NAP and economical support.
    • Dutch Dip: We thank Belgium for ending the war.
    • German Dip: Germany thanks the Dutch for their help throughout the war and requests that talks beginto establish a common economic area along the Rhine river, and to start pooling the German and dutch resources together to start reconstruction, of a devastated western Europe. 
  • Mandatory Palestine: Large immigration of European Jews to the Holy Land continues (most notably British Jews, numbering 35,000, who are escaping the Communist takeover). The government concentrates its efforts to deal with the flood of Jewish immigrants fleeing the European conflict with the nation's economy being improved. The trans-highway network is completed. Efforts are also made to reduce tensions between the different ethnic groups after the Arab revolt. Nationalist movements begin to attract more and more attention with many political parties supporting these movements, recently the actions of the British administration have been hit with accusations of corruption and ineffectiveness further increasing the size nationalist movements. After the Communist takeover in Britain the NPP declares the independence of the nation, as the Commonwealth of Jordania. Troops are sent to fortify the Egyptian border to defend against any possible British offensives. We build up our military by 5000 bringing our total army size up to 65,000. More PAI Hoopoes are produced and used to enlarge our air force. We sent a diplomat to Canada in request to join the Commonwealth of Nations. We also ask Saudi Arabia for a non-aggression pact. (Military/Economic)
    • Transjordan: Infrastructure is improved. Archaeological expeditions are given the Emir's blessing allowing for many British expeditions to take place in the region. In light of recent laws and efforts in Palestine, Transjordan also puts in place a series of laws to reduce tensions between Muslims and Christians. The Emir increases the size of the Transjordanian army to 10,000. Transjordan follows Palestine's example and joins the Commonwealth of Jordania. (military/Economic)
    • (to mods): what's the possibility of loyalist Mediterranean ships and colonies escaping the UK and joining my nation?
    • Small I think, they'd be more likely to go to Canada.
    • Even forces based in Cyprus or Malta? (due to the Turkish invasion) it seems more logical they would escape the Palestine rather than travel half way across the world.
    • Bit too early for leaving the Empire. Colonies are going to be sitting around saying 'wait what?' for a year or two. Closer you are to Britain, the longer this independence 'clock' is. That said, you will have independence within the next few years.
    • Turkey isn't invading Cyprus, we're purchasing it.
    • I think Palestine and other independently minded can go ASAP. This includes India.
  • New Zealand: With the revolt in the UK and collapse, we follow like other British colonies - We declare bloodless independence, taking the name Federation of New ZealandThisbecomes the new flag. Peter Fraser becomes President. We stay neutral in World War II.
    • Posting for QC Saturn120 13:10, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
    • Too early. Same as above. NZ will probably be going next year.
    • Maybe you should unite with Aussie for safety.
  • Switzerland: is shocked by the fall of the British Empire but recognizes the independence of its former colonies. The government expresses interest in new energy sources for the future. Swiss scientists show interest in working with the Germans on their nuclear weapons program for experience in the nuclear/atomic field and would like to have some weapons by the 1960s. {can I get a Jerry response here, Nk). Switzerland also begins work on releasing a small European people's car for 1945. The Helvetia 120 car, a 1.2 liter two-door car is set to be released, with prototypes being tested throughout Switzerland. (see pic here). Switzerland is able to export the car to interested nations.
    • German Dip: Germany agrees and Berlin in an effort to build up stronger relations with Germany's neighbors offers the Swiss a trade agreement.
    • Switzerland accepts.
  • Belgium: With our differential collapse of Antwerpen and for us. We await to join for Wallonia. We accept Netherland's peace offer for a 20 year NAP and economical support. We promise this will not happen to us and Netherlands in any costs.
    • German Dip: The new German government sympathetic to Belgium extends a hand of friendship offering to take the rump Belgian state under German protection.
    • Belgium: We accept the offer and we take the rump Belgian state for under German protection.
  • Australia: Australia continues to build up the military. Economy is improved.
    • Australian Dip: We are interested in building up relations with Germany.
  • South Africa: The jet fighter program produces immediate results, with the introduction of the Arend I jet fighter adopted by the military for testing. Taking advantage of its military expertise in the field of aeronautics, the SADF is able to fast-track the development of the fighter in response to the fast-changing field of military technology. Plans to refine the technology currently are underway. The recently designed Jagter semi-automatic rifles are replaced by newly designed fully automatic rifles, long under the curtains of foreign intelligence agencies. The new R-1 Jagter is introduced as the new weapon of the SADF infantry, the first of its kind. Designed to make up for the numerical inferiority of the SADF forces, the new weapon provides the average soldier with a higher rate of fire to offset the numbers hailed by his opponents. The SANEC continues with its nuclear program, making a breakthrough with the production of a single gram of U-235 material. This breakthrough with the production of fissile material has given South African nuclear scientists the needed information required to produce more effective ways of producing more U-235. The staff for the SANEC is expanded to 50,000 personnel, and the budget extended to $44 million dollars, allowing for an increase in the pace for another breakthrough. The aircraft carriers of South Africa, the SAS Riebeeck and the SAS Rhodes are constructed and commissioned by the South African Navy. The crewing and outfitting of the warships begins in earnest, with both ships being allotted their aircraft and flight fuel. Celebration throughout South Africa erupts as both ships begin their maiden voyage. Six new landing ships are constructed by South Africa, and naval exercises are helds in the Indian Ocean to test the ability of the South African Defense Forces to project military power on another landmass. Industrial expansion continues in pace with the rest of the world, with South Africa opening its arms to dozens of British capitalists and industrialists fleeing the United Kingdom in light of the Communist coup, seeking to avoid arrest for their anti-Communist sentiments and opposition to the new Communist government in London.
    • Namibia: The South African government approves of South-West Africa's request to be renamed, and shall henceforth by known as Namibia. The Namibian government reorganizes its militia force into the Namibian Defense Forces, as a wing of the SADF. This new force consists of 15,017 personnel, 57 aircraft, 12 small ships, and 122 tanks, which are to serve as the equipment of the NDF. The expansion of the infrastructure in light of the formation of the coup in London, begins with the introduction of government funds to assist in the expansion of the railway networks passing through Windhoek to Namibe for the transportation of construction goods.
    • Angola: The modernization of Angola begins as construction materials, teachers, food, industrial equipment, and government workers flow into the capital of the union territory. The formation of the Angolan Defense Force takes place as South African officers begin recruiting young men to serve in the ADF ranks. The education of the population with the support of the ANC as the face of the project, begins at once, and the formation of a proper national infrastructure begins to mainfest itself. The economy explodes as young Angolans once prevented from taking part in the economy of Angola by the Portuguese forces.
    • The United States asks South Africa to share rocket and other fancy technology things because of the need for all nations to unite against the threat of Communism.
    • South African Dip: It would be our pleasure to do so in exchange for any nuclear technology breakthroughs achieved by the United States government. We wouldn't want to leave each other out in the cold on nuclear research, now would we?
    • The United States agrees.
  • India: India continues to improve its infrastructure and build up its military. The Indian population continues to grow slowly, as a few new farms are built mostly on rivers. Imperial Highway 3 and 4 are under construction and Route 3 between Ahmedabad and Mumbai, then 4 between Mumbai and Hyderabad. Tensions between Hindus and Muslims rise in India. Industry continues improved to be one of best works in India. A new religion law is passed in India as Religion Act of 1944. Under the law, all citizens of the whole British Raj shall converted to Hinduism immediately, because Hinduism is an official and major religion and Islam as India's hated religion. After the Communist takeover in Britain and years of revolutions and different culture groups, India asks the British Empire to set up a plan to eventually India become completely independent, as this is much more effective and the current system is somewhat of a burden on politics, though hope to maintain relations with the UK. This is what Indian independence movement leader Mahatma Gandhi said.
  • There is no British Empire. You could just, you know, declare independence. It happens.
  • Republic of Colombia: Industry continues to be built up. Oil stuff. Military stuff.
  • In the United States, there is much anti-Communist sentiment. There is also massive military buildup in case we need to go to war with the Commies. The Manhattan Project is accelerated due to the revolution in Britain. President Wallace wins re-election on a strong anti-Communist platform. There is also industrial buildup across the country now that the war in Europe is mostly over. America begins to fund anti-British anti-Communist rings everywhere, especially in the British Caribbean possessions like the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, and British Virgin Isles, as well as in Bermuda. The US also sends people to India, Egypt, the British Mandates, and Australia in order to incite anti-Communist revolutions. Diplomats are sent to South Africa, France, Germany, Brazil, and Japan to discuss the potential of an anti-Communist bloc. America also continues to send aid to the loyalist government in Mexico.
    • German Dip: Germany agrees to a possible alliance but, the government states that it needs to rebuild before any actions can be taken.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union celebrates the death of the Polish traitors and the armistice signed with the Germans, and now the Soviet military aims to take full advantage of the situation and gain both revenge and retribution for its sacrifices. The Soviet military, still relatively fresh from its offenses in eastern Poland, begin to take the fight to the rest of the country to ensure that the new Communist government is in as much control as possible. With Germany focusing on the parts that they withdrew to, the Soviets along with their new Polish Communist allies make moves on other cities like Warsaw, Krakow, and Lublin, threatening to siege any that don't submit to the new Communist authority. In addition to that, Soviet forces occupy Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, liberating them after the successful operation that drove the Germans out of the Soviet Union. The Soviet industrial machine continues to work at a wartime pace, as the war is still not over, and rocket launchers and T-34s are continuously produced for the war effort. Planes are as well, and research into nuclear weapons and jet engines, as well as rockets, continues. The Soviet Union is considering Poland's offer, and until then proceeds with the planned invasion of Finland in an effort to bring the Soviet part of the war to an end.
    • Tuva: Tuva continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. 
    • Mongolia: Continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. Until then, Mongolian forces continue to prepare and train in case war breaks out in the far east. 
    • East Turkestan: East Turkestani officials continue to talk with Soviet and Chinese officials in peace talks. Until the outcome of such talks, the military continues to train and prepare in case war breaks out. 
    • German Dip: The German representative proposes that the German-Soviet border be drawn at the pre 1917 German-Russian Border.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi Economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 70,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer.
    • Kingdom of Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. Oil profits also allow for the purchase of arms from other nations.

1945.0

After deciding, Portugal decides to trade Nick Foles for draft picks, and gets a quarterback the Jets like, trades for that and drafts an actually useful player for them to use.

  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 58%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. This profit gained from expanding these industries led to a general mindset developed to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry upon which proved quite beneficial is maintaining Turkey self-sufficient whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and the state continued to invest upon the construction of a railroad system to complete link Turkey. An already existing railroad system in Greece certainly proved beneficial to the Turks as they were able to examine the Greek models and reconstruct their own. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia were largely in poverty. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established basically acted as a police to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and was directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as to serve as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. However, the technological support that had already been provided was considered enough to bring about mass changes in the Turkish naval forces. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was disbanded and quickly replaced with the modern Soviet Yakovlev Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighter and the Soviet Lavochkin L-5 and Petlyavok Pe-3 bombers. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own, soon developing the Yenilmez Y-1 fighter. However, the Soviet fighters still maintain their superiority over the Turkish fighters for which orders for production are not given yet, and the size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 450 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Russia and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as the German rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists make minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. The project, however, continues scarcely making much gains, though. Diplomats are sent to the Peoples Union of Britain and the Commonwealth of Canada to negotiate the purchase of Cyprus. It is the general view of Turkey for it to peacefully purchase Cyprus without having to wage war upon either the Commonwealth of Canada or the Peoples Union of Britain as both nations apparently claim control over Cyprus. However, both are also reminded that neither are really in any condition to enforce their claims over Cyprus. They're reminded that virtual South African independence, inevitable Egyptian independence and the Spanish movement towards Gibraltar has cut off the British [Whether Communist or Monarchist] from control over the Cape of Good Hope, Suez Canal and the Straits of Gibraltar. Therefore, it would be appreciated if Turkey finds out which one is to be paid as soon as possible. 
    • ​Turkish Republic of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Prime Minister, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Prime Minister had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Prime Minister announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. 
  • Mexico: The Mexican Civil War continues, with the forces loyal to the conspirators, quickly gaining ground in Southern Mexico, but unfortunately, with their progress on Mexico City halted, they turn to other more pressing matters farther south. The loyalists, meanwhile, have control over Baja California, Northern Mexico, and whatever regions of the Yucatan they still control, although the Yucatan region is isolated from the rest of Loyalist Mexico and losing ground. However, hope lies as the Americans begin to move in into the country, and help stop the rebel forces. However, the Americans are not the only ones, as Guatemalan and (in secret), Brazilian supplies are rolling in from the Guatemalan border into Mexico, while unknown to the major factions, minor factions emerge in Chiapas and Yucatan, as well as the divided Mexico City, taking advantage of the chaos to instill either fear or hope on the people. The conspirators call for the withdrawal of American forces in the region, while some of the more extreme leaders from that side call for war, while the main leader decides to ask Guatemalan-Brazilian forces to intervene, in order to deal with the Americans.
    • Brazil Dip: While we wish the best to the mexican forces wishing to make nicer with Brazil, we refuse any direct intervention: Secret: The self thinking Brazilian general sends drawn out plans to help Mexican forces as well to fully utilize the equipment being sent to Mexico's main faction (particularly a blitzkrieg-like group of battle plans to utilize the medium tanks, and other weapons sent).
  • Guatemala: Supplies several brigades of "volunteers" totaling 25,000 men, as well as more arms and funding.
  • Romania: Mihai I is the King and Constantin Sănătescu is the Prime Minister. Romania has 200.000 soldiers. To have the economy better the government can sell to European nations like Switzerland, Germany, some of the uranium that Romania has. Romania is going to mine more in the mines. The monarch is very popular in Romania.
    • Switzerland: is interested in acquiring uranium and is willing to pay well or offer other goods in exchange.
  • Romania agrees, for eight million.
  • Iran: Seek support from America to furnish us with modern weapons, planes and tanks, and train our army to use them. We also ask for support the American to help us weaken the British in the Middle East in exchange of cheap oil. Defense along the Soviet borders start to be build. Effort to modernize the nation continue with huge progress with both the villages and cities becoming Westernized.
    • The United States agrees.
  • The United States moves troops into the Bahamas and declares it a protectorate of the United States. Bermuda is also turned into an unincorporated territory. The Navy begins making regular patrols around these regions and Puerto Rico+the Virgin Islands. Also, peacekeeping forces under the command of Dwight Eisenhower are deployed into Haiti in the name of anti-Communism. It is regarded as controversial but it is part of the Wallace administration's new hardline policy against Communism and imperialism. There is also great military buildup and growth of the economy. The Navy begins to build more and more ships, carriers, transports, and escorts while the Army also designs new, stronger tanks while the Air Force begins to look into rocket technology thanks to research and designs shared with us by the Germans. More aid is sent to the loyalists in Mexico to ensure stability in the nation. The Manhattan Project continues and the development of a working nuclear weapon of mass destruction is projected to be completed in one to two years (1946.0 or 1946.5). More to come. Damn Canadians.
    • ​Brazil Dip: Brazil requests the United States make a concentrated to effort to prevent a major issue in Africa if colonies start breaking away from their various empires. Particularly to prevent a nation from gaining too much power in unwarranted ways. 
    • The United States would like to focus on make a strong base at home before taking major steps overseas. However, America invites Brazil to join America and Canada in the signing of an anti-Communist treaty.
    • Argentina: We request to join the anti-Communist treaty. We offer to send the United States schematics for our jet fighters to speed up the US jet fighter program.
    • The United States agrees to this arrangement.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostiliates with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the reintroduction of Chinese land back into the Republic. We accept the German trade agreement offered late last year. 
    • The United States offers to send economic aid to the Republic of China and a trade agreement.
  • Brazil: Brazil with the end of the majority of the conflict abroad returns to a more relaxed stance. drawing its patrols further back into Brazil rather than extending fully across the atlantic. The Brazilian navy in general draws its patrol routes to the coasts of South America to better watch its own influence and sphere. The Brazilian Military maintains its current size and decides no further expansion for the time being. Brazil begins to integrate its allies and economic partners deeper into ties with Brazil particularly within its own market sphere. Brazil being South Americas most industrializied state as well as its most influential has gained a commanding market dominance over the continent being able to market its goods convincingly to the rest of its allies and economic partners. Brazil's nuclear research continues with enrichment of uranium in particular continuing. This leads to a closer understanding of how the bomb physics work and a prediction that Brazil and her co-operation partners will all achieve the bomb by early 1948. Brazil's election takes place with Nereu Ramos reigning Victorious in the election. The Brazilian air force continues to develop its jet technology particularly with its fighter which begins mass production. However, it is not replacing fully the Super Blackhawk which still reigns as Brazil's top air superiority fighter. The Brazilian navy officially launches two of its first Light carriers the Barroso and the União each holding about 40-50 aircraft. Their launch and commission coincides with Ramos's re-election and this is consecrated as such. The Brazilian army in particular undergoes a rigourous program to begin chemical weapons development using some of its research and development budget geared towards this. The Brazilian Espadas now being classified a the navies clandestine special forces group conduct a raid on a rebel group in the state of Amazonas ending their tenure as a rebel group with great prejudice. Brazil fully integrates the purchased islands as overseas territories. The Brazilian government in general treats this as semi autonomous states in order to gradually include them into Brazil's cultural development. Jamaica in Particular is a relatively given proposition for a Brazilian naval base and the military plans on establishing a major naval base in Jamaica, with the most likely city being Kingston. Brazil political opinion begins to shift in a more involved kind of phase due to the various international events Brazil has begun to play with. Brazil's industry by the next year is predicted to Rival the Japanese empire in terms of Industry. The Literacy rate in Brazil in just the recent time period has jumped considerably with the new schooling system paying off as new generations enter the workforce. The previously rural Brazil has largely begun to Urbanize and the growth rate in population is expected to skyrocket in the next few years. With the various agreements developed between Germany and Brazil the Brazilian government acquires its own StG-44's from the Germans and begins to test them for uses as well as development of a weapon from this gun.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela's elections go as planned with a Pro-Brazil faction taking control. The Brazilian bases in Venezuela expand. The nations oil and refining industry continues to expand with the nation beginning to show a greater standard of living. Venezuelas armed forces expand to about 120,000 with their navy growing in recruitment. The Brazilian investment into Venezuela continues to pay off as the expansion of oil opportunity to various new countries particularly Germany helps expand the economy significantly. Venezuelas population reaches four million. The Venezuelan people are still rather shocked at the British homeland going Communist but begin to learn to accept it. 
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanan confederation adds British Guyana to its nation expanding the nation's population to about 750,000. Brazilian immigration to the other two-thirds of the country continues to expand with the migration to British Guyana beginning as well. The mining of Bauxite and Manganese continues and the development of a port city and search continues.
      • Argentinean Secret Diplomacy: We request to join the Brazilian-Japanese nuclear weapons research. We have our own reactor, and have produced 100 pounds of plutonium.
      • Brazil Secret Dip: Done and done
  • Ethiopia: Seeing the collapse of the British Empire we seize British Somaliland stating ethnic reasons. We add the province to the Somali region of Ethiopia and tell the people that you are finally free from the Europeans. We would also like to be included in the peace talks to ratify our faith. We continue to industrialize and begin demobilizing in hope France accepts our deal.
  • German Reich: Reconstruction in the Rhineland continues as over 100,000 people are drafted to help with the rebuilding effort a month calling on rotating classes. Through this method progress is made specially in the Ruhr and in major cities along the Rhine river. The new government continue to relax political restrictions allowing the Social Democratic Party to reform. Trials of several members of the old Junta begin. Most are found of treason and sentencing will be passed in the following months. Elections are promised for the first time in over a decade in 1946, and campaigning begins almost at once with the leading parties being the reformed Social Democrat Party, the Centre Party which now has a lot more votes thanks to the Austrian electorate, and the Reformed Conservative Party representing the interests of the Old Prussian Elite, many think that the Centre Party, and the Social Democrats will sweep the elections. The re-industrialization of the Rhineland picks up as many companies invest to have their factories rebuilt or invest in new properties to try to put together a profit in the upcoming years. SIlesia enjoys a massive increase in profits as it remains the only German industrial hub uneffected and production of commodities and goods grows in the region. The Bundeswagen sets up two main factories one in Breslau and the other in Hamburg, production of the Bundeswagen 1945 begins. Due to widespread social and political reppression over the past decade with the lifting of restrictions many clubs quickly become booked due to an explosion of Jazz, cabaret shows, and other artistic forms occurs, Cities like Berlin, Munich, Breslau, Konigsberg, Hamburg, and Cologne become major centres for these shows, the phenomenon is known as the Lost Decade due to the fact that most of this would have been the natural evolution of the Weimar artistic and social development, had the right not taking over. The new government provides supplies and funds for those who lost their homes or who were displaced by the war until they get back on their feet, but lots of restrictions and observations are made to ensure that these benefits are not exploited as the government is trying to manage its resources efficiently. The prototype for the Horten Ho 229 is developed in secret, a test flight of the stealth fighter is done, and several issues are noticed with the system it shows a lot of promise, the Ho 229 is kept a secret from all but a select few. schematics on the concept of stealth tech is giving to the Brazilian and American ambassadors in person to share with their respective militaries in exchange for more raw material and funds. Co-operation with the Brazilian Nuclear Program increases and Germany looks at the Americans as another possible partner in the endeavor, a chain reaction is produced to the great satisfaction of the German government and high command and it is estimated that first bomb will be ready by 1949. development of more efficient jet fighters using the Me 262 as a foundation continues to start phasing out the now obsolete WW2 era fighters. Realizing the inefficiency of having several types of tanks the Wermacht offers large subsudies to the company that can develop an all purpose tank, Krauss-Maffie, Bundeswagen, Krupp, and other large industrial groups look more into the Panzer IV designs to develop a better medium tank which will help phase out the lighter and heavier tanks. schematics for a possible new panzer design nicknamed the Panther are delivered to the high command for review. The G 06 assault rifle is developed as the natural evolution of the StG 44, while it has noticeable shortcomings the base weapon is deemed as superior to all other firearms out there at the moment and demand factory production begins at once to start phasing out the aging Gewher 43, and the Kar 98. The mechanization of the German armed forces continues as it is seen as the key to avioding any future defeats in the face of Soviet superior manpower. Plans to expand the navy are scuttled as the large funds allocated to the navy during the war are seen as better spent elsewhere. However, it is decided that the navy will be modernized in the future. Synthetic rubber is now being produced in large amounts thanks to technological developments during the war and with this the price of certain products go down a lot thanks to the this new development. The V-2 rocket is developed in secrecy and the government decides to do a live test with the new weapon, launching two of the new rockets against some of the pockets of Polish resistence remaining in Posen, the new weapon is seen as a good scare tactic but before it can be useful weapon of war ajustments are needed to improve accuracy of the weapon. As a by-product of the rocket development a new anti-tank weapon is developed the Panzerschreck 45 is developed to help deal with tanks. Troops engaging Polish guerrillas make progress as the dismantle one pocket after another, slaughtering those that resist, and shipping the others to camps along the border with Soviet Poland, It is universally decided that all Pole who refuse to accept a return of German rule will expelled across the border and the land will be giving to families of Germans fleeing from Eastern Europe.
    • Mods, Either continue to do algos or stop Germany from being at war with Russia in Poland. the USSR has basically already been declared the winner, so they should get to decide what happens to Poland.
    • Ummm - Poland player: MP and I agreed to partition you. The war with the Soviets is over, he is on his land and I'm on my mine. You got split up. It's that simple. With Blood and Iron (talk) 01:24, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
  • Belgium: We might exist to join the under German protection called Wallonia. It gives us the opportunity to work with German and Netherlands. Military gains more troops ahead, into 10,000 Belgian forces in total of 250,000 troops in the military. Government wasn't surprised after the argument of the Netherlands caused us the loss of Brussels, Antwerpen and Limburg.
  • Australia: Australia continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. A new railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is planned.
    • Australian Dip: We ask Micronesia if they want to unite with Australia.
    • Canadian Diplomacy: We ask our fellow Dominion if they wish to join Canada in establishing a Commonwealth of Nations to tie the former British Empire into a common economic, political and cultural alliance (note, not military)
    • Australian Diplomacy: We accept Canada's offer.
  • Switzerland: begins to move into peacetime mode, with the army reduced to just 150,000 full-time men and women, though conscription will still continue. Swiss presence in Liechtenstein is reduced to five soldiers and talks resume to continue the couse of union between the two nations. The Helvetia 120 is officially released for sale with production initially at 2000 cars per month, to increase in the coming years. Guisan resigns as leader of Switzerland and the Social Democrats are elected into power. Some uranium is acquired from Romania for early tests into potential uses and the government also agrees to acquire some from South Africa. A nuclear site is built in order to experiment with this uranium and look into potntial energy and military uses, again building on early co-operation with the Germans.
  • Swiss nukes? Doesn't make sense.
  • Look them up, the project did exist.
  • Yugoslavia Concerned with the rising threat of Communism, the military decides to begin a program to procure modern weapons for the troops to replace the World War I-vintage standard issue equipment. Accordingly, they begin to look into purchasing weapons abroad. As part of the military buildup, a state-owned aircraft company, SOKO, is founded. Plans to improve infrastructure are also drawn up as part of an overall program of modernization.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi Economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 70,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer.
    • Kingdom of Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. Oil profits also allow for the purchase of arms from other nations.
  • India: India continues to improve its infrastructure and build up its military. The Indian population continues to grow slowly, as a few new farms are built mostly on rivers. Imperial Highway 3 and 4 are opened and Route 3 between Ahmedabad and Mumbai, then 4 between Mumbai and Hyderabad. Next one on Indian highway plans, Imperial Highway 5 is under construction and routes between Delhi and Mumbai. Tensions between Hindus and Muslims rise in India. Industry continues improved to be one of best works in India. After the Communist takeover in Britain and years of revolutions and different culture groups, India finally declares independence and British Raj doesn't exist any longer. The Union of Monarchist Indian States (UMIS) is officially founded on 4 March 1945, with Ravi Phunkar, imperial called Ravi I, as its first emperor of India, imperial house of Phunkar rules India, as well he has retaken title of former British Raj emperor. About two of 25% Muslim Indians that formally follow Islam are now converted to Hinduism.
    • Canadian Diplomacy: We ask The Union of Monarchist Indian States if they wish to join Canada in establishing a Commonwealth of Nations to tie the former British Empire into a common economic, political and cultural alliance (note, not military)
    • Indian Diplomacy: Accept, India and Canada joins together and establishing Commonwealth of Nations here.
    • Mod Event thingies: Muslims rebel against the Hindu government and the forced conversion laws. Also, people who want a republic free of monarchy also rebel against the government. Also, Burma declares its independence in the east.
    • Muslims are not just going to convert to Hinduism. This problem is not going to go away.
  • Canada: A general election is held in Canada, and William Lyon Mackenzie King's Liberal Government wins another Majority, this time buoyed by refugees from the home land. The UK Government in Exile, headed by Winston Churchill (He's still alive ATL, right?), is given a cabinet post in the Canadian Government to support the needs of the British Exodus. The problem of what to do with the many refugees, the many ships of the Royal Navy and units of the RAF and British army that defected is hampered by few records of exactly how many people Canada now has to deal with (Mods, can you please give me a guideline of what I have to deal with now?). To ease the strain on the Maritimes, many are given free train tickets to travel to Ontario, Quebec, and the Prairie Provinces. Many of the wealthiest are encouraged to start up new businesses in Canada to help employ the refugees and unemployed Canadians. Massive refugee camps are built throughout the country to house the British Exodus. The Department of Defense starts to draw up plans to incorporate whatever ships of the Royal Navy, planes of the RAF and army units of the British Army into the current Canadian military structure. Efforts to maintain as much tradition as possible is upheld. Canada also asks to join the United States's Anti-Communist alliance... for reasons. And just to top it all off, PM W.L.M. King denounces the People's Union of Britain for being Communist.
    • Millions of people at least.
    • The United States agrees that an official anti-Communist bloc needs to be formally created and invites Canadian diplomats to sign a treaty with the United States providing common and mutual defense against the threat of Communism. Also, the government offers Canada an economic aid package to help them deal with the mass exodus of British nationals and offers any help possible.
  • South Africa: The South African Air Force tests the Arend I jet fighter, and passes it as a viable fighter aircraft upon completion of the test flight. The Arend I is immediately introduced into the SADF and a total of 70 jet fighters are ordered by the military for immediate deployment by the air force. The navy sends a fleet of two cruisers, five destroyers, and four frigates, headed by the SAS Rhodes to the American city of Norfolk to visit the President of the United States, and plan a strategy against the Communist forces in Europe. It is a grand occasion, the first time a sitting head of state of South Africa went abroad to another country on official duties. Back home, the research into nuclear power continues ahead, with a planned break out in 1953. The government of South Africa pours additional money into the program to help the SANEC move ahead without funding issues. Additional nuclear reactors for the program are constructed in the country to support the infrastructure needed by the SANEC. Expansion of the literacy program in South Africa continues with schools and universities being built throughout the nation to expand the ability of black Africans to gain access to an education. With the economic benefits acquired by educating Africans, whites in the nation have opened up the idea of allowing them to be educated on par with white South Africans. Exploiting the opening, the ANC propels many of its members into the government by suggesting that the literacy program would best be led by blacks, providing a more welcoming face for the government to the people. With their success in Angola well documented, the South African government agrees to the plan, and allows the ANC to direct the government's literacy program in South Africa. Construction of hospitals and medical facilities in the black majority regions of South Africa begins, as the high mortality rates within the black population has since come to concern many government officials who do not wish to see large numbers of their workforce depleted so quickly because of poor government planning. Combined with the greater economy independence and security of black Africans, many can afford to take advantage of these modern facilities, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. As the new public infrastructure is constructed, many Africans are moving out of rural areas, and into the cities, where they have a major impact on the economic growth of the nation. Given the squalor many were living in before the modernization of their home towns, the death rate was understandably high. It is hoped that many black South Africans will be able to fully benefit from the government's renewed interest in their well-being. With the high rate of development of the economy, economists predict a 5.7% increase in the national GDP for this year. The government of South Africa continues its negotiations with Northern and Southern Rhodesia, Nyasaland, and Bechuanaland on the possibility of establishing a federation of states following the coup in London. With no love for the British government to begin with due to the controversial methods the British subjects in Africa use to government their territories, the government of Prime Minister Smuts of South Africa, Sir Godfrey Huggins of Southern Rhodesia, Sir Edmund Richards of Northern Rhodesia, and the government of Bechuanaland proceed to devise a government that will incorporate all of their territories into a single entity. A census is held by the government for the year of 1945, revealing a population of 11,281,594 citizens.
    • Namibia: The development of Namibia's economy and infrastructure continues as normal, with expansion of the NDF continuing in pace with the nation's growth. Shipments of modern military equipment arrive in the capital city for the NDF's reorganization. The economy benefits from the transit of industrial equipment from South Africa going to Angola, and many workers coming through the city of Windhoek stopping to rest and relax. The desire for luxury goods from overseas results in the expansion of Walvis Bay, allowing it to import more goods for the benefit of those back in the capital city. The mining industry also benefits from the growth, as gold, platinum, diamond, and uranium miners are able to get their hands on better industrial equipment. With a growth in the population, the government can begin constructing refineries in the nation, allowing the cost of transporting the minerals out of the nation to be cut as they are refined at home. A census is held by the government for the year of 1945, revealing a population of 483,952 citizens.
    • Angola: Education of the population is swift and targeted, with the literacy program focusing on the farmers and laborers of the nation, before reaching the higher echelons of power. As the case is in South Africa, the government is seeking to increase the standard of living in Angola for the benefit of the people, so as to best exploit the population resources available to the government. With education on the dangerous of VD and poor sanitation spreading throughout Angola, many officials state that the government can expect a lower death rate in the coming years, as many natives begin to use modern sanitation methods for dealing with waste, diseases, and pregnancies. As predicted, fewer mothers have died giving birth in the first half of this year, achieving much praise for foreigner observers. The economy benefits greatly from this turn of affairs, as more Angolans are able to partake in the economy of the nation rather than working harder to support their families because of the loss of a parent in the household. With another person in the house to care for the children, the men are able to focus on work. With the introduction of better paying jobs in the nation, many Angolan men are able to move their families out of the rural areas of the nation, and into the city, or even purchase tractors and other modern tools for their farms, increasing agricultural output. Though there is much left to do, at least the government is able to boast it has achieved some of its goals. A census is held by the government for the year of 1945, revealing a population of 4,193,843 citizens.
    • Swiss Dip: Switzerland shows interest in acquiring around two tons of uranium for early research.
    • South African Dip: South Africa would be happy to provide the resources for $2.5 million dollars.
    • Swiss Dip: Switzerland finds that great.
    • Again, Swiss nukes seems ASB.
    • Scraw, they're not. Look up the Swiss nuclear program, plus do keep in mind that we're assisting the Germans with theirs. BTW, all this is just for very initial testing/experimentation. Don't expect Swiss nukes or energy plants for at least another decade, or 15 years.
  • Argentina: We produce another eight jet fighters. Another two long range bombers are completed. Private companies are struggling with the helicopter design. Secretly, work continues on the nuclear weapons program. A meager budget is given to develop a rocket. The Army looks into manufacturing an assault rifle. The government praises the end of the war in Europe and the peace treaty. Monitoring continues on the Socialist Party. We officially recognize Canada as the successor to the United Kingdom. Work begins on modernizing public sanitation, and health. Ground is broken for a new hospital in Buenos Aires, and doctors are sent to the United States, Germany, Brazil, and Canada to study medicine, dentistry, and health in general. Some drilling for oil begins in the northern provinces where signs of the liquid gold has been found. The Department of Agriculture outlaws slash and burn methods for crops, although it will be difficult to enforce. The military acquires 20 infantry landing boats for the Marine Corps, as well as moves twenty light tanks to the Marines from the Army, and purchases thirty artillery pieces. The Army receives another twenty infantry tanks. Work on a submarine continues. The Ballester-Molina Semiautomatic Pistol completely replaces the M1911, and the Chiesanuova rifle replaces the Mauser. (Mil/Eco Turn)
    • Uruguay: The Communist Party is still monitored. Work continues on building highways and interstates throughout the nation. We recognize Canada as the official successor nation to the United Kingdom. The government in joint with Argentina praises the end of the war in Europe. Ten infantry tanks are acquired from Argentina. (Mil/Inf Turn)
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union celebrates the death of the Polish traitors and the armistice signed with the Germans, and now the Soviet military aims to take full advantage of the situation and gain both revenge and retribution for its sacrifices. The Soviet military, still relatively fresh from its offenses in eastern Poland, begin to take the fight to the rest of the country to ensure that the new Communist government is in as much control as possible. With Germany focusing on the parts that they withdrew to, the Soviets along with their new Polish Communist allies make moves on other cities like Warsaw, Krakow, and Lublin, threatening to siege any that don't submit to the new Communist authority. In addition to that, Soviet forces occupy Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, liberating them after the successful operation that drove the Germans out of the Soviet Union. The Soviet industrial machine continues to work at a wartime pace, as the war is still not over, and rocket launchers and T-34s are continuously produced for the war effort. Planes are as well, and research into nuclear weapons and jet engines, as well as rockets, continues. The Soviet Union is considering Poland's offer, and until then proceeds with the planned invasion of Finland in an effort to bring the Soviet part of the war to an end.
    • Tuva: Tuva continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. 
    • Mongolia: Continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. Until then, Mongolian forces continue to prepare and train in case war breaks out in the far east. 
    • East Turkestan: East Turkestani officials continue to talk with Soviet and Chinese officials in peace talks. Until the outcome of such talks, the military continues to train and prepare in case war breaks out. 
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Poland: We are EXTREMELY upset at Germany for their crimes against humanity, especially their genocide against Polish people. We ask for Soviet intervention and for their help in controlling the border and pushing any final Germans out of Poland. We also need a response from the USSR about their plans for Poland. We build up our military to help with the force against the Germans. We ask other countries in Europe to place sanctions on Germany until their horrible crimes end. Finally, we build up the infrastructure to help Soviets reach Western Poland faster.
  • France: With the war drawing close to an end, the French army holds in the Ruhr and Rhineland abusing it to power their current war machine. Though peace had been met during the time they had been waiting for the terms to be hashed out and the official treaty to be signed. While the French military had been sitting and waiting, the Germans used this opportunity to launch an offensive to reclaim the lost industry in the Ruhr and Rhineland. The Germans are successful in pushing back the French our if major areas, though total ejection of the French of the Ruhr was predicted to take another three months. With the war officially ending with the terms affirmed between the French and German politics, those who served and saw combat are advised to head home and live the rest of their lives with their families. Meanwhile, those who did not see combat are brought into the fore front of the military, along with the reserves moving into full active duty. The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves being planned to be raised. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. (Military/Economy turn)
  • Guatemala is delighted to discover that its newly acquired territory of British Honduras contains substantial reserves of petroleum. Galvanized by this, the Premier announces a new "Five-Year Plan" to industrialize and modernize the country. Labour teams are mobilized to begin the construction and improvement of heavy industry, mines, and other infrastructure, with particular focus on arms-manufacturing plants. The government fails to explain how it will secure the technological expertise necessary. To justify this to the populace, the government plays up the necessity of supporting Mexico. Accordingly, several Volunteer Brigades of 25,000 men are formed and sent north in support. Mosquitia and El Salvador launch they down Five-Year Plans.
  • Second Spanish Republic: After a long awaited, scheduled election, Phillip Ferdinand comes to power after a close vote. After Ferdinand talked with the mining corporations, the talks went extremely bad, and the value of the companies continues to drop. To add insult to injury, miners start to strike for higher wages and more healthcare benefits. He says in his inaugural speech "La industria minera en ruinas, sólo un liderazgo fuerte puede traer renovar el gran poder que tenía." which translates to "The Mining industry in in ruins, only strong leadership can bring renew the great power it had." "Ferdinand also states in his inguaral speech. España tiene el potencial para convertirse en una gran potencia en Europa, con el liderazgo correcto, economía y equilibrio militar." which translates to "Spain has the potential to become a great power in Europe, with the right leadership, economy, and military balance." Investments in the mining industry made by France and the USSR start to turn around the economy for the Republic of Spain. Rebuilding efforts continue in Gallicia, to restore the area to the way it was before the nationalist rebellion. Meanwhile, seeing Portugal as a threat and supplier of the Nationalist rebels, have confirmed his retreat and Portuguese support. Tensions start to escalate over accusations between the two nations, and secretly an invasion is planned for sometime next year. After seeing France repel the German Fascists, Spain decides to do the same to its Fascist neighbor Portugal. After signing the peace treaty to end the conflict, a surprise attack on Portugal emerges, with Philipe Ferdinand saying "Fascist Portugal is always a danger to Spain and her people; It must be removed from power. The last offensive takes place against Lisbon, hoping to topple the Fascist regime in the final battle. Meanwhile, income from the mining industry rises, and tech modernization continues. Spain asks United States if they could purchase American technology, to help modernize the nations technical level. The monarchist party also starts to gain followers, with almost 34% of the populations either registered or supporting the party. Spain asks Brazil, a Portuguese speaking nation, to build naval bases in Angola and Mosqambice to help extend its world influence overseas. [Mil/Econ Turn (Nation/Vassals)]

  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 58%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. This profit gained from expanding these industries led to a general mindset developed to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry upon which proved quite beneficial is maintaining Turkey self-sufficient whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and the state continued to invest upon the construction of a railroad system to complete link Turkey. An already existing railroad system in Greece certainly proved beneficial to the Turks as they were able to examine the Greek models and reconstruct their own. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia were largely in poverty. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established basically acted as a police to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and was directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as to serve as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. However, the technological support that had already been provided was considered enough to bring about mass changes in the Turkish naval forces. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was disbanded and quickly replaced with the modern Soviet Yakovlev Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighter and the Soviet Lavochkin L-5 and Petlyavok Pe-3 bombers. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own, soon developing the Yenilmez Y-1 fighter. However, the Soviet fighters still maintain their superiority over the Turkish fighters for which orders for production are not given yet, and the size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 450 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Russia and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as the German rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists make minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. The project, however, continues scarcely making much gains, though. Turkey starts influencing the island of Cyprus [Turn One of Six]. Meanwhile, the Turks fund independence movements in Iraq. Along the same time, with Pakistan, India and Burma declaring independence; we announce our recognition of all three parties. 
    • ​Turkish Republic of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Prime Minister, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Prime Minister had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Prime Minister announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. 
  • China: Military and economy are improved, seeing as hostiliates with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the reintroduction of Chinese land back into the Republic. We accept the United States offer of weapons presented late last year. 
  • Poland: We ask for extreme military intervention in Germany from the USSR, and hope that they can cake over the Eastern section of Germany, in order to end the German threat, the Polish genocide, and the German tyrannical crimes against humanity. We improve our military and send it to the war with Germany. (We remind the mods to either stop Germany from being at war with us, or continue the algos between Germany and the Polish-Soviet alliance). We ask for an alliance with Britain, as they have now also become Communist. We improve our infrastructure in order to help the Soviet re-inforcements more quickly access the battle. We ask for the countries of the world to place sanctions on Germany until they have stopped all of their immoral actions. Citizens begin to grow hostile towards Germans, but the government refuses to go into action unless they have been proven guilty of crimes.
  • Poland, realize that you no longer exist, the Soviets own you and Northwest Poland is German now. With Blood and Iron (talk) 01:33, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
  • No, I did not realize that because you were the only one ever saying that which wasn't trusty enough.
  • Trust me - if it weren't so I wouldn't even bother. I do apologize for what happened but you did backstab me so XD. With Blood and Iron (talk) 11:12, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
  • Also, I'm not committing genocide. I'm expelling the Poles from the lands I occupy. With Blood and Iron (talk) 01:34, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
  • Poland doesn't exist any longer.
  • The United States invites Colombia and Mexico to join the PATO. More peacekeeping forces are deployed to Mexico. The Army seizes Port-au-Prince and begins the occupation of Haiti. Or not. I still need an algo. America also requests that Germany share rocket technology. There is great military buildup and stuff. The M3 tank is deployed into Haiti and the B-29 is used in Mexico to aid the loyalists. More carriers and large assault ships are built in preparation for war, as well as advances in planes. The Manhattan Project nears completion, and towards the end of the year, an implosion-type plutonium device is detonated in New Mexico. It is the first successful detonation of a nuclear weapon in the history of the world. J. Robert Oppenheimer famously states "I am become death, the destroyer of worlds." America also builds up its economy and industry. Wallace's approval ratings go up thanks to his hardline stance against Communism and foreign aggression. Puerto Rico is admitted as a state, but it includes the Virgin Isles. The federal government ends the practice of daylight saving time in the states. Also, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands are incorporated as the Territory of Guam.
    • In the Bahamas, there is military buildup as the United States moves troops, ships, and planes into the region. A military governor (Bradley?) is appointed over the islands. All ties with the former Britain are severed due to the Communist revolution and the people generally accept the Americans since they are not Communist.
    • The island territory of Bermuda is destined to become a future naval base for the American Navy's Atlantic fleet. Also, a new American airfield is constructed on the island as the staging point for any possible future events.
    • The United States begins to loosen its grip on the Philippines since the potential danger of war in the Pacific decreases. A referendum is held there and it very narrwoly results in a plurality of Philippine citizens voting on becoming a Commonwealth.
    • Spain requests to join PATO.
      • The United States votes to allow Spain into PATO. Place a formal request on the PATO page.
    • Germany agrees to give its recent developments in Rocketry to the Americans in exchange for details on the American nuclear program. On another note the German ambassador to Washington D.C. expresses Germany's interest in the Pan-Atlantic Treaty Organization.
      • The United States agrees to Germany's proposed exchange of information and invites Germany to become an observer nation in PATO.
    • Argentinean Dip: We offer to trade with the United States two of our jet fighters and schematics in exchange for aid developing a submarine and work on our nuclear weapons program.
      • The United States: Agrees to exchange jet fighters and jet fighter related material in exchange for submarine related material. You have your own nuke problem, why would you ask me for it?
  • Guatemala: is delighted to discover that its newly acquired territory of British Honduras contains substantial reserves of petroleum. Galvanized by this, the Premier announces a new "Five-Year Plan" to industrialize and modernize the country. Labour teams are mobilized to begin the construction and improvement of heavy industry, mines, and other infrastructure, with particular focus on arms-manufacturing plants. The government fails to explain how it will secure the technological expertise necessary. To justify this to the populace, the government plays up the necessity of supporting Mexico. Guatemala proposes to the Mexican rebel forces that they place their portion of Mexico into federation with Guatemala, enabling the two nations to augment each others' strength and defeat the loyalist forces.
  • Not happening sorry -Feud
  • Mexico: The war continues as Loyalist forces in Yucatan lose battle after battle against the conspirators, while they manage to retake Mexico City. The conspirators accept the Guatemalan offer, while the loyalists decide to join PATO. While this benefits both sides, the war is still a bloody stalemate across most of the nation. The loyalists request direct involvement from PATO, in order to deal with the problem.
  • Ace, end the bloody war before I piss myself.
  • Argentina: The military begins to plan integration into the PATO military structure. The Air Force receives another 12 jet fighters, and eight bombers. The Navy begins to adapt the jet fighter for aircraft carrier usage. Some in the government want to support the rebels in Mexico. Overall, the government decides to remain neutral. The Argentinean government agrees to set up a ferry system between Montevideo and Buenos Aires. Some in the Congress of Argentina want to annex Uruguay as a new province, but currently, the President wants to wait. Work on a helicopter continues, with an engine designed and the tail rotor finished. A frame is partially designed, and the tail engine is still being worked on. The Navy lays down three corvettes which use the same framework as the destroyers, just are shorter and have a shallower draught. They will be done in a year. Work on the first two submarines begins. There will be three more submarines built to provide support for the Navy and the aircraft carrier task force. Work continues with Brazil and Japan on the nuclear weapons program. More progress is made, and hopes are for the bomb in the next decade. The Argentine National Gendarmerie is formed with 25,000 soldiers utilizing retired rifles and handguns. A coast guard is formed with the four river patrol boats. The Coast Guard has 10,000 sailors in it. A hydroelectric dam is planned for the rivers to provide clean electricity. The new hospital is halfway completed, and doctors are planned to return in three years. We begin influencing Paraguay. (Turn One of Six) (Mil/Infra turn)
    • Uruguay: The Army purchases another 12 infantry tanks. The Navy purchases another destroyer. Work continues on the infrastructure around the nation, and mass transit continues around Montevideo. A ferry system is planned to link Montevideo and Buenos Aires. Work begins on a new power plant to increase coverage and reduce blackouts. (Mil/Infra turn)
  • Brazil: Nereu Ramos loses some popular support as he agrees to join into the Pan Atlantic Treaty Organization, but cites the growing threat from Communism. Brazil begins to integrate some of its military Structure with PATO and offers the idea to Standardize the ammo of the organization by the end of the 1950's. This is done to make sharing ammunition among other things between military forces can go smoothly. The Brazilian navy continues to develop its power projection capability particularly in the form of marine deployment adding more troopships to the fleet. The Brazilian Army begins to fully develop its airborne capabilities particularly in being able to deploy the Airborne Ranger Divisions. These Divisions are given myriad amounts of specialized equipment particularly the New sub-machine gun developed from a black market acuired Soviet sub machine gun. the MP-33 is given to many Airborne troops for its compact size. The Brazilian army adapts the StG-44 in mass procuring a good amount of these rifles from Germany through arms purchases. Brazil agrees with Spain to set up naval Bases in Angola and Mozambique. The Brazilian fleet immediately deploys battlegroups to these bases along with about 5000 marines to each. These bases are to give them major resupply points for PATO, as well as to expand Brazil power projection capabilities in a much more meaningful capacity. Both bases are also given five destroyers, one cruiser, three frigates, and four subs for their start up forces. The Brazilian air force continues to develop jet engines for it heavy bombers looking to design a whole new bomber for this design. The F-270 is added to the air fleet more with nearly 150 of these aircraft phasing out the blackhawks which are mothballed and put in an holdover base in the Amazons. The Brazilian army begins development of a new tank using design ques to fix various issues with the Viper II. Brazilian forces set up in the new Caribbean territories. The Brazilian GDP thanks to industrial growth reaches about two billion flat with a growth rate of about 6.3% and growing as more private industry takes off.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to develop its oil and refining industries. The Venezuelan government officially decides to sign the PATO treaty looking to avoid coming to blows with the larger nations which are looking to Combat Communism. The Venezuelan military stays static at 120,000 force but increases its naval capacity. It officially gains its first light carrier from Argentina. The Venezuelan economy and its GDP advance significantly gaining nearly 6.5% this year.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Confederation continues to gain significant Brazilian immigration as many move to take industrialization jobs in the bauxite mining and refining. The Confederation looks to potentially vote to join Brazil in later years with its Bauxite mining becoming a rather large developing industry in Brazil's economic situation.
    • Don't you think Spain should have like a separate algorithm to occupy Portuguese Angola and Mozambique? It doesn't really make much sense TBH. When Napoleon conquered Spain, the Spanish colonies didn't swear allegiance to Napoleon.. They fought for independence. Similarly, as British colonies are now all going for independence due to the Communist Revolution, it would also make sense for the Portuguese colonies to fight for independence instead of becoming loyal to Spain which occupied mainland Portugal. 
    • The Nazis OTL occupied most of the French colonies (even with a vichy government there was still occupation) with little to no issues, the Free French had to slowly but surely liberate most of the colonies. I think Sat is Fine -Feud
  • South Africa: South Africa continues its talks with Southern Rhodesia on the possibility of establishing a federation, and encourages the Huggins government in Salisbury to discuss and vote on the issue. South Africa also states its deep regret that the other nations in the region refused to join the planned coalition of nations, voicing that any who wish to join are always welcome, with membership remaining an open opportunity for all. The states of Basutoland and Swaziland are approached on the issue of joining the union, with many South African businessmen helping strong-arm several politicians in the smaller states to consider the request. Given the weaker and more vulnerable economies possessed by both, and the enormous reliance on South African co-operation to get their goods to port and on the international market, the two states find themselves choosing between political independence and economic stability. The South Africans have effectively pushed the two enclaves into a narrow corner. Elsewhere, the South African delegation arrives in the United States, and moves to meet with the American government to set up a military alliance between the two nations. Back home, the literacy program continues, with a 99% literacy rate in the Black African population by 1955 the goal of the government. Schools are set up throughout South African for the sole purpose of achieving this goal. The framework needed to get the already literate black population into secondary school and university is underway, and plans to induct several thousand young men and women from native backgrounds are drawn up by the ANC with the government's full support. Those blacks that completed university in the 1930s and set up their own businesses, have since moved to help out in the program, by opening up new businesses in Transvaal and Free State, and helping to provide jobs for the native population of the country. The added goal of helping these people achieve economic parity with white South Africans is deemed a priority by the ANC, rationalizing that a better educated and better paid black population will ultimately help in expanding the economy overall. On the medical front, the introduction of modern medical facilities in poor black neighborhoods and cities, helps with the decreasing of the death rate in those regions by nearly 25%. Many have blamed the poor medical treatment of blacks as a leading cause for the nation's lagging population growth rate. Though South Africa is one of the leading nations in the world in terms of birth rate, many of these children are blacks, who often die before their first birthday. With increased support for the medical treatment of blacks, many expect the population of South Africa to increase to about 3.2% a year from an average of 1.7% a year. In preparation for such growth, cities are being expanded and infrastructure enhanced to cope with the population boom expected. Production of the Arend I jet fighter begins in the town of Welkom, where several aeroplane facilities have been constructed. 25 Arend I's are currently under construction at the Welkom facilities. The South African military conducts drills on the exception of a chemical and biological attack on their forces, especially focusing on amphibious attacks in the event of a Communist invasion from Great Britain. South Africa immediately protests the move by Brazil to establish military bases in Angola and Mozambique, with many South Africans coming to believe the move by Brazil to be in response to the South African invasion of Angola. Many South African politicians couldn't have hoped for a better move by Brazil, building a case to the people of South Africa that their military buildup at home was indeed worth it, and that it is only a matter of time until the Brazilians are constructing bases in Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland, cutting South Africa off from the rest of Africa. Many in the nation even begin to murmur that Brazil may have had a covert hand in the refusal of Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland to join the planned South African federation. In spite of these concerns, South African demobilizes much of its military for the time being, transitioning much of its active personnel into an active reserve branches known as the Commando Forces and Civilian Force forces; the Commando Forces serving as fully-trained light infantrymen training in rear defense, and the Civilian Forces; also fully-trained part-time reservists serving as conventional personnel during wartime.
    • Namibia: The development of additional nuclear reactors for the purpose of the SANEC's research continues. The government sponsors the construction of a series of military bases throughout Namibia, which are to serve as training grounds and weapons testing facilities, allowing the military wide berth in its operations without harming any civilians or farmland. Taking full advantage of this, the SADF moves a number of high-ranking officials to Windhoek to oversee the construction of a massive military base which will be the largest in the nation, and serve as the primary center of training and preparation for an attack by a foreign enemy.
    • Southern Angola: The Angolan government continues with its expansion of the educational and medical facilities in the nation, funding the construction of new railroads to aid in the expansion of the regions infrastructure and industrial sectors. The literacy rate of Angola, thanks to South African sponsorship, has increased from less than five percent, to more than fifteen percent. The failure of the Portuguese colonial government to facilitate the education of the African population of Angola, has allowed the ANC to foster within the native population, a deep form of patriotic fervor for the South African government, painting South Africa as a liberator and protector of blacks throughout the region. With the ANC serving as the face of the South African government in Angola, the natives come to view their government as a state looking out for their needs and desires, and helping them to better themselves through education. The introduction of modern technologies and the SADF's strong hand in reducing and outright preventing potentially deadly tribal conflicts, has served to build up a positive image of the South African regional government in Angola.
    • Canadian Diplomacy: Canada asks South Africa if they will join the Commonwealth of Nations, and if they will share some of South Africa's nuclear research in return for a some of the old Royal Navy that Canada will be unable to maintain (like battleships, cruisers, destroyers, subs, etc.)
    • South African Dip: South Africa agrees to the request. We will send Canada our latest research related to nuclear development, in return for ship from the old Royal Navy.
  • Iran: We recognize India, Burma and Pakistan as free nation and secretly start to encourage the Arab colonies to declares independence from Europe under a secular base to prevent a destabilization of the region. The Communist Party is banned with its members arrested. We start to educate our troops to use American weapons. No weapons are smuggled across the frontier with Pakistan but small quantity of oil is shipped across the frontier.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Turkey expresses its interest in purchasing oil from Iran. 
  • Canada: Canada is pleased to join the Pan-American Treaty Organization, and gratefully accepts the offer of American aid to deal with the British Exodus (sorry, wasn't able to post before last turn ended). Newfoundland joins the Confederation as the tenth province. Canada/UK Government in Exile formally renounces ties to Bermuda, Bahamas and other territories currently occupied by US, Brazil and Argentina. It has finally been determined that 570,980 British refugees have fled the People's Union of Britain to Canada, which puts a heavy strain on resources and the infrastructure of Canada. There are also four aircraft carriers, nine battleships and battlecruisers, 27 cruisers, 76 destroyers and other small craft, and 23 submarines. (Mods, are you okay with these numbers? It can go up to "millions" over a few years, and the number of ships can be reduced as well.). All the ships are made part of the Royal Canadian Navy for the current time, though it has been decided that most of the battleships and the older cruisers and destroyers will be sold, either to other countries or for scrap, as Canada can not even consider supporting all of them. (Not taking offers until Mods approve current numbers). The number of former RAF planes is totalled at roughly 103, and most of them were long range bombers due to the long distance between Canada and the UK. However, hundreds of trained pilots were part of the Exodus. At least 95,000 men of the pre-war British Army were part of the Exodus, with many units in the former British Empire, upwards of an addition 75,000, have pledged their loyalty to King George VI and the UK Government in Exile. Most of these units have been ordered to maintain their positions and carry their Imperial Defence duties until further notice. Several have been skirmishing with Communist supporters of the People's Union of Britain for months, and the commanders have agreed to work with whatever force in the colonies wishes to support the new Commonwealth of Nations. The Commonwealth now totals: Canada, Palestine (sorry for not replying sooner), Australia and the Union of Monarchist Indian States. And just to top off another busy month, Prime Minister Mackenzie King denounces the People's Union of Britain. (And who decided now was a great time to spell check? Edit conflicts are not fun >_<)!
    • Dutch Dip: We ask to buy ships from Canada, specifically three destroyers and one battleship
    • Canadian Dip: As soon as we get the confirmation that we control all of them, we will sell some to you.
    • Argentinean Dip: We again request to purchase all of Canada's South Atlantic Islands for three million dollars.
    • Your numbers are good. ~ Scraw
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • Mandatory Palestine: Large immigration of European Jews to the Holy Land continues (most notably British Jews, numbering 50,000, who are escaping the Communist takeover). The government concentates its efforts to deal with the flood of Jewish immigrants fleeing the European conflict with the nation's economy being improved. The trans-highway network is completed. Efforts are also made to reduce tensions between the different ethnic groups after the Arab revolt. Nationalist movements begin to attract more and more attention with many political parties supporting these movements, recently the actions of the British administration have been hit with accusations of corruption and ineffectiveness further increasing the size nationalist movements. Our military stands at 65,000. More PAI Hoopoe are produced and used to enlarge our air force. Following the 1945 referendum, the Palestine government announces that within a year (due to the transfer of power from British to Palestinian leadership) the nation will be interdependent. (Military/Economic)
    • Transjordan: Infrastructure is improved. Archaeological expeditions are given the Emir's blessing allowing for many British expeditions to take place in the region. In light of recent laws and efforts in Palestine, Transjordan also puts in place a series of laws to reduce tensions between Muslims and Christians. The Emir increases the size of the Transjordanian army to 10,000. (Military/economic)
  • German Reich: A year after the war ended Germany continues to rebuild a devastated Rhineland using the large amounts of supplies and raw materials granted by the U.S.A. and Brazil. Life in western Germany is slowly starting to return to normal as the volunteer and drafted workers help rebuild large areas damaged or exploited by the French. Rationing is slowly easing up as resources are becoming more available to the general population, many in the army are getting released and returning to their families, lots of these decide to volunteer as well to help rebuild their nation. Major corporations move back into the Rhine particularly Krupp, which put the steel factories back to work in the Ruhr Valley. Industrialization in Silesia, Austria, and throughout the Rhineland continues. In an attempt to increase productivity Berlin in co-ordination with major corporations and Industrialists begins rebuilding the extensive Rhineland railway system and improving the system in the rest of the country. Exportation of Steel, weapons, consumer goods, and other products begins again mainly to the U.S.A, Brazil, Canada, Turkey, China, and Germany's allies in Europe. The first national elections in over a decade are held in Germany with the Centre Party, and Conservative Party pulling a surprising victory over the Social democrats. The Centre Party seeing that they were behind in the votes formed a common front with the Conservative party to form a coalition government in the final months of polling. Despite this the Social Democrats form an overwhelming 45% of the Reichstag giving the opposition a very strong voice in the government. Berlin, and Vienna quickly regain their status as the political hubs of the Reich. The intelectual circles of Vienna remain largely left wing, while Berlin remains a melting pot for political and social philosophies. The cultural explosion continues without an end in sight with thousands of new artists, dancers, and musicians popping up across the country. Jazz continues to pick up in popularity. large scale scientific research continues with the greatest minds in the Reich working on a variety of projects. The nuclear program continues full steam ahead, it is now believed that Germany with Brazilian and Swiss co-operation will have its first bomb in 1948. With the process for enriching of Uranium and plutonium fully developed the program is nearly at an end with the only thing left to do is develop a means of fission within a safe environment and to develop a stable container. Development of a large data processor begins as the German high command sees a need for faster devices (in effect I'm looking to make the first "computer." The actual first one was made during World War Two, so this is a bit late.). Rocket engineering and engineering development continues. The G 06 has its final kinks worked out and mass production of the rifle begins, with it slowly replacing the more outdated weapons of the armed forces. development of more modern smgs and machine guns begin as well. Mauser and the Austrian based Steyr Mannlicher agree to a merger of the two companies creating a massive new entity known as Mauser-Steyr, many unsatisfied with the new company, and its supposed policies move onto Hamburg founding Hekler & Koch, a smaller arms firm. Both firms are contracted by the German government to develop future assault rifles based on the G 06 model. Development of new fighters based on the old Me 262 known as the Me Hawk are near completion (similar to the AMerican Sabre.) as does the development of new tanks and APC. The Horten Ho 229 enters small scale production to be serve as a special part of the air force, while tweaking of its system continues to work out the kinks. The government decides to set up a military government in the recently reannexed provinces of what used to be Poland, establishing the Posen-Prussia District. Berlin and offers Czechoslovakia them a free trade agreement (Mod Response please.)
    • Posen-Prussia District: With Berlin granted total authority to the occupying forces a new administration is set up. All Germans living within the area are granted German citizenship at once while Poles are issued resident cards, stripping them of their nationality. However, it is decided that those who can prove their will to learn German and live within a German state will be granted German citizenship. Those deemed docile are permitted to remain within the Reich. However, those who are considered restive are slowly collected to be expelled across the border into the Soviet Union. German families who had lands taken from them after World War One are granted half of their original lands, while the rest is set aside for settlement by Germans coming from the East. With the trickle of Germans slowly increasing many are settled in the districts, and provided with supplies and government benefits until an active economy can be restored to the region. Military checkpoints are set up to keep the conquered Poles under control and to protect the German civilians moving into the area. 
  • Belgium: Following a war that has been started in 1941. We're shocked for Poland, as they came up being collapsed by two strong nations. Meanwhile, the Wallonia is hopefully to made us living. Some structures to be build there, also military. But hopes for having a navy is lost to our capital. The war is over and we really thank the Germany that saved Belgium to come in Wallonia. We shift the capital city into Liege. and Government says Brussels is under administrative with Netherlands and Belgium, doubts if keeping Brussels a capital city will be major threat to Wallonia.
  • Switzerland's government begins to implement some policies to both counter and go into the nuclear age. Most cantons are proposing that houses should have bomb shelters able to withstand indirect attack by their new bombs. Near Lucens scientists are experimenting with uranium and looking into enriching a small amount for testing and experimental uses for the possibility of future energy uses.
  • India: India continues to improve its infrastructure and build up its military. The Indian population continues to grow slowly, as a few new farms are built mostly on rivers. Imperial Highway 5 is under construction and routes between Delhi and Mumbai. Tensions between Hindus and Muslims rise in India. Industry continues improved to be one of best works in India. The United States of India is now proclaimed, with Rajendra Prasad becomes the first president of India, as well the Indian parliament and Indian Armed Forces becomes independent from Britain under control of Indian government and reformed administrative divisions by transforming the former British Raj provinces into states of India.
  • Netherlands: Mil and eco. Jan de Wit is reelected as raadspensionaris. The French in Brussels have equal rights, although we notice that some want to leave the country for Belgium. They are allowed to leave.
  • Australia: Ben Chiefly is elected Prime Minister. Australia continues to build up the military. Economy is improved. The project of a railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is begun.
  • Second Spanish Republic: After a long awaited, scheduled election, Phillip Ferdinand comes to power after a close vote. After Ferdinand talked with the mining corporations, the talks went extremely bad, and the value of the companies continues to drop. To add insult to injury, miners start to strike for higher wages and more healthcare benefits. He says in his inaugural speech "La industria minera en ruinas, sólo un liderazgo fuerte puede traer renovar el gran poder que tenía." which translates to "The Mining industry in in ruins, only strong leadership can bring renew the great power it had." "Ferdinand also states in his inguaral speech. España tiene el potencial para convertirse en una gran potencia en Europa, con el liderazgo correcto, economía y equilibrio militar." which translates to "Spain has the potential to become a great power in Europe, with the right leadership, economy, and military balance." Investments in the mining industry made by France and the USSR start to turn around the economy for the Republic of Spain. Rebuilding efforts continue in Gallicia, to restore the area to the way it was before the nationalist rebellion. Meanwhile, seeing Portugal as a threat and supplier of the Nationalist rebels, have confirmed his retreat and Portuguese support. Tensions start to escalate over accusations between the two nations, and secretly an invasion is planned for sometime next year. After seeing France repel the German Fascists, Spain decides to do the same to its Fascist neighbor Portugal. After signing the peace treaty to end the conflict, a surprise attack on Portugal emerges, with Philipe Ferdinand saying "Fascist Portugal is always a danger to Spain and her people; It must be removed from power. The last offensive takes place against Lisbon, hoping to topple the Fascist regime in the final battle. Meanwhile, income from the mining industry rises, and tech modernization continues. Spain asks United States if they could purchase American technology, to help modernize the nations technical level. The monarchist party also starts to gain followers, with almost 34% of the populations either registered or supporting the party. Spain purchases Congo, a former colony of the Belgian rump state. Meanwhile, troops are sent to Angola and Mozambique, to help protect the nation from foreign threats and to strengthen the ties between the natives and the colonists living there. Meanwhile, coal and raw materials are started to be exploited in the Northern region of Spain. Slowly this generates more and more profit, with the leaders keeping a close eye on the production levels. Machine guns, based off of the FM 24 and FM 29 models, are produced at a rapid pace, and are sent onto the international market. Aircraft similar to the CW-77 fighters are also started to be researched into, with plans coming to start producing them in about a year and a half. [Mil/Econ Turn (Nation/Vassals)]
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union celebrates the death of the Polish traitors and the armistice signed with the Germans, and now the Soviet military aims to take full advantage of the situation and gain both revenge and retribution for its sacrifices. The Soviet military, still relatively fresh from its offenses in eastern Poland, begin to take the fight to the rest of the country to ensure that the new Communist government is in as much control as possible. With Germany focusing on the parts that they withdrew to, the Soviets along with their new Polish Communist allies make moves on other cities like Warsaw, Krakow, and Lublin, threatening to siege any that don't submit to the new Communist authority. In addition to that, Soviet forces occupy Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, liberating them after the successful operation that drove the Germans out of the Soviet Union. The Soviet industrial machine continues to work at a wartime pace, as the war is still not over, and rocket launchers and T-34s are continuously produced for the war effort. Planes are as well, and research into nuclear weapons and jet engines, as well as rockets, continues. The Soviet Union is considering Poland's offer, and until then proceeds with the planned invasion of Finland in an effort to bring the Soviet part of the war to an end.
    • Tuva: Tuva continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. 
    • Mongolia: Continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. Until then, Mongolian forces continue to prepare and train in case war breaks out in the far east. 
    • East Turkestan: East Turkestani officials continue to talk with Soviet and Chinese officials in peace talks. Until the outcome of such talks, the military continues to train and prepare in case war breaks out. 
    • Polish Dip: We ask the Soviet Union to allow Poland, with its new borders, to be independent of Soviet politics and culture but still in Soviet influence economically. We are also Communist and would like to be a satelite state, and would like to be allied, but we are different culturally, religiously, and linguistically and would like to remain independent for that reason. 
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi Economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 70,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer.
    • Kingdom of Yemen: The Military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. Oil profits also allow for the purchase of arms from other nations.

1946.0

In India, there is still war. Pakistan invades India with the intent of expanding into Muslim regions such as Punjab and Sind. In the east, Bengal also declares independence, supported by Burma and Pakistan. Burma and Bengal invade Assam.

Eric, you can't just say there's no more war without putting up a fight.

I was wondering, it doesn't make much sense for Pakistan to be invading Punjab and Sind. Karachi, the first capital of Pakistan was literally in Sind and Punjab forms the heartland of Pakistan. The 'notsoimportant' provinces were the Frontier Province and Balochistan and it was only the latter that eventually started fighting for independence back in 1970s. 

The Commonwealth of Nations proposes a solution to the Indian conflict: http://althistory.wikia.com/wiki/Commonwealth_of_Nations_(Axis_vs_Allies:_Resurrection_Map_Game)

I personally don't see a Pakistan without Punjab and Sind, LOL. They were the two main things in Pakistan, it's sort of like taking England and Scotland out of UK. BTW, I doubt Burma would have any intention to join the Commonwealth but depends on Mods..

OK, I've fixed it so it is a bit more plausible.

Seems much more plausible now.

I was thinking that Pakistan didn't yet control the regions mentioned. It is still early in the war.

Ceylon declares independence as Sri Lanka.

Sri lanka is an artificial state forcing two ethnic groups to work under British protection. There should be a war going on to the Tamils and Sinhalas.

Meh. 

Egypt declares independence as a kingdom with Farouk I of the Muhammad Ali Dynasty as king. It also takes the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium of Sudan with it.

As discussed previously.

Spain and Belgium join PATO.

  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 58%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. This profit gained from expanding these industries led to a general mindset developed to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry upon which proved quite beneficial is maintaining Turkey self-sufficient whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and the state continued to invest upon the construction of a railroad system to complete link Turkey. An already existing railroad system in Greece certainly proved beneficial to the Turks as they were able to examine the Greek models and reconstruct their own. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia were largely in poverty. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established basically acted as a police to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and was directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as to serve as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. However, the technological support that had already been provided was considered enough to bring about mass changes in the Turkish naval forces. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was disbanded and quickly replaced with the modern Soviet Yakovlev Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighter and the Soviet Lavochkin L-5 and Petlyavok Pe-3 bombers. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy, etc, and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own, soon developing the Yenilmez Y-1 fighter. However, the Soviet fighters still maintain their superiority over the Turkish fighters for which orders for production are not given yet, and the size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 450 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Russia and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as the German rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists make minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. The project, however, continues scarcely making much gains, though. Turkey starts influencing the island of Cyprus [Turn Two of Six]. Meanwhile, the Turks fund independence movements in Iraq. Moral support is given to Pakistan in their fight against India. Meanwhile, thousands of Turks migrate to South Africa to form part of the South African work force. 
    • ​Turkish Republic of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Prime Minister, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Prime Minister had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Prime Minister announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. 
    • Argentinean Dip: We offer to have a trade agreement and exchange embassies.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Turkey accepts.
  • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostiliates with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the reintroduction of Chinese land back into the Republic.
    • Argentinean Dip: We offer to exchange embassies with China and offer military aid.
  • In the United States there is military buildup. Thanks to Argentina, the US begins to make jet fighters. On March 12, the Manhattan Project finishes the first operational nuke. Construction on a second one continues. Also, thanks to Germany, America begins to make more advanced rockets and rocket launchers. Scientists begin to look into rocket propelled combat aircraft. Also, heavy tanks. There is buildup in the economy and industry. The US also invites more nations to join PATO. The Territory of Guam begins the process to statehood, as does the Territory of Hawaii. There is also discussion about what to do with Samoa. It is too far from Guam or Hawaii to be part of either state but too small to be its own state. America continues to send aid to Canada, China, Saudi Arabia, and Iran. As the situation in Mexico worsens, many high ranking officials of the military advise occupying Mexico outright instead of only sending peacekeeping and military advisors. The United States officially recognizes Pakistan, Bengal, Burma, and Sri Lanka.
    • In the Bahamas, a Governor is chosen to rule over the islands. There is economic buildup and fortification and subsequent buildup of defense in case of a dangerous situation arising with Britain.
    • The Republic of Haiti remains under military occupation led by military governor Dwight D. Eisenhower. As such, there is military buildup as American forces are moved into the nation. Haiti proposes that the Dominican Republic join in a union with them in order to maintain peace on the island of Hispaniola.
    • The Commonwealth of the Philippines develops its infrastructure and its economy. The Philippine Independence Party begins to become popular as many are opposed to remaining an American Commonwealth. Others think that the Philippines need to stay with America due to its economic dependency on the nation.
    • German Dip: Berlin requests German ascension to PATO.
  • Iran: continue to supply Pakistan and Arab nationalists in secret. The Shah start to considering joining PATO but stay quiet. The army is build up with American support while foritification of the Soviet frontier and continuously re-inforced.
  • Brazil: The Nation of Brazil continues its development particularly of its Industrial ability. The population of Brazil reaches about 47.5 million with a major population boom occuring. The Brazilian Navy in particularly begins to further Develop as it now fields a relatively large fleet of various capital ships and a large auxiliary fleet. The Brazilian fleet in general is able to expand its power projection cababilities significantly especially its ability to deploy troops rather than just troops. The Admiralty admits to being able to ship about 50,000 Brazilian Marines with little or no issues in a state of peacetime and in a geared up state of war nearly double this number. The Brazilian Army is able to deploy heavily as well but the general armed forces size remains the same size. The Brazilian air force continues to expand as well adding more F-270's to the Air fleet. The Brazilian economy continues to develop with a 6.7% growth this year predicted but a certain economic condition revoling around debt potentially causing issues for the expanded growth. The Brazilian industries particularly in arms, steel, and shipbuilding continue to expand significantly, However, Bauxite (aluminum) continues to be an expanding industry and Brazil now officially works its way into a top spot of Bauxite mining and refining into aluminum. The Brazilian government, however, levels a heavier control in order to prevent flooding the market with it and driving its price down. Manganese continues to be developed as a mining industry as well with it being used to produce tainless steel cheaply and without major issues some other nations have in production. The Brazilian arms industry continues development of a rifle based on the StG 44 but due to some design considerations the research is forced to start from scratch. The Brazilian military begins designs on a new submarine. The Air force and army forces are deployed to the island territories in tbe Cabiean. The Brazilian Highway network taking some cues fro the German system continues to develop with many major coastal roadways and highways now completed. The Railway system has also expanded significantly since the 1930's with many railways pushing into the interior now.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela begins to develop industrially further as its oil refining capabilities expand significantly. The Venezuelan military develops a reserve of forces about 250,000 in order to mobilize a bit further in case of war. The Moderate industrialization of Venezuela continues with commodities industry being built up in a rather quick fashion. The Venezuelan nation begins to develop roadways and railways to connect with Brazil.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The confederations Bauxite and Manganese mining continues to develop significantly due to Brazilian immigration and Investment. The Confed in general show notable economic increases as its GDP increases by a good amount. The territory looks to have Brazilian majority in a good amount of areas now.
    • Argentinean Dip: We propose having war games next year in Brazil to increase our military readiness and have some real world training. We have several old cargo ships from the late 1880's that can be used for target practice. We also believe having aggression training with our new jet fighters between the aircraft and between propeller driven planes and jet fighters to increase effectiveness.
    • Spain proposes to make the military exercises jointly run for all for all of PATO to keep their militaries in shape.
    • Brazil Dip: We agree with both and offer to host a joint wargames with Spain and Argentina off the coast of Santos, and the full on PATO wargames to be help in the Caribbean or the North Atlantic.
  • France: With the war drawing close to an end, the French army holds in the Ruhr and Rhineland abusing it to power their current war machine. Though peace had been met during the time they had been waiting for the terms to be hashed out and the official treaty to be signed. While the French military had been sitting and waiting, the Germans used this opportunity to launch an offensive to reclaim the lost industry in the Ruhr and Rhineland. The Germans are successful in pushing back the French our if major areas, though total ejection of the French of the Ruhr was predicted to take another three months. With the war officially ending with the terms affirmed between the French and German politics, those who served and saw combat are advised to head home and live the rest of their lives with their families. Meanwhile, those who did not see combat are brought into the fore front of the military, along with the reserves moving into full active duty. The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves being planned to be raised. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. We are willing to join the PATO organization as friendly nations such as Spain and Belgium have joined it. (Military/Economy turn)
    • BTW, LL. Your war with Germany was more or less a defeat. You lost potential allies which were UK [Now Communist], Germany [Hates you] and Belgium [Literally a German puppet state]. You suffered territorial loss in Indochina and suffered the loss of thousands of soldiers which should make the people hate you, you know.. But you managed to occupy the industrial hearland of Germany and then? You accepted peace for inflation money. I am not even sure if you're in the condition to maintain an active force of two million and an even larger reserve force TBH. 
    • Romania: Wants to buy 20 French tanks.
  • Canada: With the refugee crisis mostly dealt with, plans are now made to improve the new Canadian Armed Forces, namely by de-mobilizing and selling many of the costly ships, while improving the few Canada will keep. Canada will keep two battleships and the four aircraft carriers, but only 20 of the cruisers will be kept, and all the pre-World War One destroyers are sold, leaving 34, and 15 submarines. A fleet of two carriers, the two battleships, seven cruisers and 15 destroyers (including all six of the completed Provincial Class ships) are prepared for a "World Trip," showing the flag and showing that though the British Empire may be gone, the Commonwealth, and Canada's commitment to it, is still strong. The Army is going to be maintained at a level of 70,000 troops for the foreseeable future, but Canada is refraining for getting new rifles/machine guns until the PATO ammunition is standardized (AKA, we agree with Brazil there). Canada beings planning of new weapons to equip the armed forces, and asks for help from other nations, namely Germany, the US, Brazil and South Africa if they will help, and establishes the Commonwealth Defence Bureau (CDB) to these ends. We offer one battleship and three destroyers to the Netherlands for a few million dollars, and agree to sell the rights to the southern Atlantic Islands to Argentina for $3 million if we can use the Falklands as a military base for the next 20 years. Most infrastructure funding is devoted to housing the refugees, with another 25-30,000 arriving every six months from the former UK and other war-torn areas of Europe. Once again, Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King denounces the People's Union of Britain for being Communists.
    • I personally think it needs to settled with the Moderators on whether the colonies are loyal to the Motherland or the Crown. Spain recently conquered Portugal and the colonies have remained loyal to their new masters, showing they care more of Motherland than Crown. Same was the case with the French colonies and Vichy France. Should be the same with the British Communists. Personally, I'd say that neither the Canadian Commonwealth nor the British Communists have the resources to control the colonies for a long period of time as independence is inevitable. But the 'weaker' colonies for now should be loyal to the Motherland, not the Crown. Basically, stop selling British colonies. That'd be like Taiwan selling land on mainland China. 
    • The idea here is not necessarily the selling of the colonies to other powers, but establishing Canada/Uk Government in Exile as the ACTUAL successor to the British Empire versus the People's Union of Britain. It may not be totally "legal" to sell the islands, but because I am saying I'm doing it, and other nations are buying it from me, technically they are supporting that idea that Canada is now the centre of the former British Empire. And these are small Islands: not the colonies like Nigeria and Kenya, etc. that I'm selling. I've already offered them the chance to become Dominions like Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa with all the rights that entail, and they can then determine their own political destinies and if they will join the new Commonwealth of Nations.
    • I think what is going on here is that Canada is leading the effort of creating the Commonwealth from post-British states that are now becoming independent. Also the monarchy and former government has moved into Canada.
    • The United States agrees to aid Canada.
    • Romania wants to buy one Canadian ship, a cruiser.
  • USGN: Flanders is annexed as the provinces of Vlaanderen, Antwerpen and Zuid-Brabant. Mil and eco. We propose that Germany and US use the same military equipment. (Nk proposed this to me himself, he also had a name for it). The Dutch East Indies are obviously sold to Australia, but, as we agreed upon per treaty, we keep the city of Batavia, military bases on several islands, and we also keep access to oil. After the annexation, the country is renamed to the Verenigde Staten van Groot-Nederland(United States of Greater Netherlands).
    • Batavia: Mil and eco.
    • German Dip: Germany agrees to the proposal. However, Germany proposes that the process be done over a period of five years to give time for development of the mutual armed forces.
  • Mandatory Palestine: Large immigration of European Jews to the Holy Land continues (most notably British Jews, numbering 50,000, who are escaping the Communist takeover). The government concentates its efforts to deal with the flood of Jewish immigrants fleeing the European conflict with the nation's economy being improved. The trans-highway network is completed. Efforts are also made to reduce tensions between the different ethnic groups after the Arab revolt. Our military stands at 65,000. More PAI Hoopoe are produced and used to enlarge our air force. Following the 1945 referendum, the Palestine government announces independence as the Commonwealth of Jordania. We ask any major western nation to help modernising and arming our military in exchange for military bases in our country as well as access to our nation's Uranium reserves (Military/Economic). 
    • ​'Transjordan:' Infrastructure is improved. Archaeological expeditions are given the Emir's blessing allowing for many British expeditions to take place in the region. In light of recent laws and efforts in Palestine, Transjordan also puts in place a series of laws to reduce tensions between Muslims and Christians. The Emir increases the size of the Transjordanian army to 15,000. The nation of Transjordan decides to join the Commonwealth of Jordania. (Military/Economic)
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Turkey expresses its interest in expanding upon relations with Palestine and providing them with military aid. Not even interested in uranium, but attracted by the military base offer; the Turks are willing to accept the whole deal nevertheless which includes military aid in return for military bases and uranium.
    • Jordanian Dip: We accept the deal and hope this agreement will lead to a long a fruitful relationship between our two nations.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Turkey is delighted by the acceptance of the offer by Jordania and mutually feels that co-operation between Turkey and Jordania must reach new heights! 
    • German Dip: Berlin expresses interest in opening relations with the new Commonwealth of Jordania, and the possibility of extending German trade to the Middle Eastern country.
    • Jordanian Dip: The Commonwealth agrees to extent trade rights with Germany, as well as allowing Germany to establish an embassy in Jerusalem.
    • The United States offers to send aid to the new nation.
  • German Reich: A year after the war ended Germany continues to rebuild a devastated Rhineland using the large amounts of supplies and raw materials granted by the U.S.A. and Brazil. Life in western Germany is slowly starting to return to normal as the volunteer and drafted workers help rebuild large areas damaged or exploited by the French. Rationing is slowly easing up as resources are becoming more available to the general population, many in the army are getting released and returning to their families, lots of these decide to volunteer as well to help rebuild their nation. Major corporations move back into the Rhine particularly Krupp, which put the steel factories back to work in the Ruhr Valley. Industrialization in Silesia, Austria, and throughout the Rhineland continues. In an attempt to increase productivity Berlin in co-ordination with major corporations and Industrialists begins rebuilding the extensive Rhineland railway system and improving the system in the rest of the country. Exportation of Steel, weapons, consumer goods, and other products begins again mainly to the U.S.A, Brazil, Canada, Turkey, China, and Germany's allies in Europe. The first national elections in over a decade are held in Germany with the Centre Party, and Conservative Party pulling a surprising victory over the Social democrats. The Centre Party seeing that they were behind in the votes formed a common front with the Conservative party to form a coalition government in the final months of polling. Despite this the Social Democrats form an overwhelming 45% of the Reichstag giving the opposition a very strong voice in the government. Berlin, and Vienna quickly regain their status as the political hubs of the Reich. The intelectual circles of Vienna remain largely left wing, while Berlin remains a melting pot for political and social philosophies. The cultural explosion continues without an end in sight with thousands of new artists, dancers, and musicians popping up across the country. Jazz continues to pick up in popularity. large scale scientific research continues with the greatest minds in the Reich working on a variety of projects. The nuclear program continues full steam ahead, it is now believed that Germany with Brazilian and Swiss co-operation will have its first bomb in 1948. With the process for enriching of Uranium and plutonium fully developed the program is nearly at an end with the only thing left to do is develop a means of fission within a safe environment and to develop a stable container. Development of a large data processor begins as the German high command sees a need for faster devices (in effect, I'm looking to make the first "computer". The actual first one was made during World War Two, so this is a bit late.). Rocket engineering, and engineering development continues. The G 06 has its final kinks worked out and mass production of the rifle begins, with it slowly replacing the more outdated weapons of the armed forces. development of more modern smgs and machine guns begin as well. Mauser and the Austrian based Steyr Mannlicher agree to a merger of the two companies creating a massive new entity known as Mauser-Steyr, many unsatisfied with the new company, and its supposed policies move onto Hamburg founding Hekler & Koch, a smaller arms firm. Both firms are contracted by the German government to develop future assault rifles based on the G 06 model. Development of new fighters based on the old Me 262 known as the Me NT 20. Realizing that to get the kind of tank they want, Kraus-Maffei and Krupp puts a jet engine into the overall design of the Panzer V a new medium tank that proves a superior model over previous ones ( something of a hybrid of the OTL Panther and the British Centurion tank, with out the flaws of either). While not quite where the Government wants it is a massive improvement over previous tanks and the government orders production of the new tank to begin. The Panzer V is widely recognized as the first step in revolutionizing Tank warfare by many in the German military community. The Horten Ho 229 enters small scale production to be serve as a special part of the air force, while tweaking of its system continues to work out the kinks. The government decides to set up a military government in the recently re-annexed provinces of what used to be Poland, establishing the Posen-Prussia District. Berlin and offers Czechoslovakia them a free trade agreement (Mod Response, please.) Germany continues to expand its trade with Turkey, and Saudi Arabia. In secret Germany offers the Saudis and Turks the StG 44 to help them improve their military strength as well as older tanks and jets which are still years ahead of anything the other Middle Eastern countries may have. Some 2000 German volunteers also offer their services as advisors in exchange for boarding and German standard military salaries with benefits.
    • Posen-Prussia District: With Berlin granted total authority to the occupying forces a new administration is set up. All Germans living within the area are granted German citizenship at once while Poles are issued resident cards, stripping them of their nationality. However, it is decided that those who can prove their will to learn German and live within a German state will be granted German citizenship. Those deemed docile are permitted to remain within the Reich. However, those who are considered restive are slowly collected to be expelled across the border into the Soviet Union. German families who had lands taken from them after World War One are granted half of their original lands, while the rest is set aside for settlement by Germans coming from the East. With the trickle of Germans slowly increasing many are settled in the districts, and provided with supplies and government benefits until an active economy can be restored to the region. Military checkpoints are set up to keep the conquered Poles under control and to protect the German civilians moving into the area. 
    • Turkish - German Diplomacy: Although Turkey expresses its disapproval of the German desire to join the PATO and of the fact that Germany has slowly reverted to its traditional opposition to Communism, we push these aside and accept the purchase of StG 44 rifles in order to replace the 1934 era German rifles were which being used. The German older tanks and jets, however, are rejected due to the already existing flow of tanks and aircraft from the Soviet Union. 
    • German Dip: Berlin promises that while it is joining PATO it is out of a need for self defence only, and The ambassador to Turkey is upset at the rejection of German machines stating that while Turkey does have Soviet tech it is not on par with the German arms.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: The diplomat apologizes and accepts the tanks as well as the aircraft. 
    • Dutch Dip: We offer to contribute scientists to the nuclear program.
  • Switzerland: begins early work on making jet planes. Arbalète is set up as the company in charge of that project and will co-operate with German manufacturer Messerschmitt for a fighter-bomber (see and do fully domestic work on a potential fighter plane (see pic here). Switzerland also begins initial work on developing a domestically-produced assault rifle, though may purchase some elsewhere.
    • Romania wants to buy ten Swiss jets.
  • Belgium: After a slight contact with Netherlands and gained a loss of cities. Wallonia is the rump state and under German protection. In case the Government wasn't officially surprised for the people in Brussels that wants to leave the country for Belgium. But he hopes Liege will be the capital city. He shows that the mistake was officially by following the French forces to occupy Germany, but he admits it was his fault. 
  • Argentina: The Argentinean Armed Forces send troops to replace the British soldiers in the Falklands, Saint Helena, Ascension, Tristan da Cunha, South Georgia, and the South Sandwich Islands. The Falklands are renamed the Malvinas, their Spanish name. The first two submarines are laid down, and another tank landing ship is laid down. The corvettes are completed and launched. Another two destroyers are laid down for the Coast Guard. They are technically cutters, only having a single 100mm cannon, five heavy machine guns, and two 40 mm anti-aircraft guns onboard. The Air Force receives another 12 fighter jets and five heavy bombers, while the Navy begins trials with a navalized version, with two being delivered for testing. Joint work with Brazil and Japan continues on a nuclear weapons program. Work on a helicopter by private enterprise continues. Economic development begins, with the city of La Plata, Comodoro Rivadavia, and Bahía Blanca being designated zones for foreign development with reduced taxes. Buenos Aires is designated a Free Port, cutting tariffs for importers on certain goods, with the exception of the Communist United Kingdom and South Africa. The government bans Argentinean businesses from doing business in South Africa and freezes banks from having association with South African banks, or giving them loans. Work begins on an assault rifle to replace the older bolt action rifles and increase firepower. Work continues on the hospitals, with the hospitals around the nation being 75% complete. Doctors begin to return to Argentina with new knowledge, and there is talks of opening a medical hospital in Buenos Aires. Ground is broken on a rail system in Cordoba and Buenos Aires. Oil exploration begins in the northern provinces. Influence continues on Paraguay. (Turn Two of Six)
    • Uruguay: Another two destroyers are received by the Navy. The government continues linking their transportation infrastructure with that of Argentina. The Army begins war games with the Argentinean Army. Montevideo is designated a Free Port as well, with hopes to increase foreign investment. Uruguayan banks are banned from doing business with South Africa as are Uruguayan businesses.
  • India: India continues to improve its economy and build up its military. The Indian population continues to grow faster and appear 500,000 people each year to become India the most populous country on Earth followed by Population Growth Act of 1946, as a few new farms are built mostly on rivers. Imperial Highway 5 is now completed and routes between Delhi and Mumbai. Next one on Indian highway plans, Imperial Highways 6 and 7 are under construction. Industry continues improved to be one of best works in India. Another six destroyers and one battleship are built by Indian Navy. After the Indian Civil War resolution in Treaty of Delhi, the Indian area now controls all of OTL India and started an project called Partition of India, in when all Muslims lived in India shall move to Pakistan or Bengal and all Hindus and Sikhs lived in Pakistan or Bengal shall move to India.
  • The war is not over. PAKISTAN WILL RULE THE WORLD.
  • Australia: Australia continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. A new railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is being built.
    • Australian Dip: We ask Micronesia if they want to unite with Australia. (Mod Response needed, if Micronesia is already part of Australia, feel free to cross out.)
    • Sorry man, most of the islands in the region are either Japanese or American.
  • South Africa: The South African government and the government of Southern Rhodesia begin formal discussions on the matter to political integration. With the collapse of the previous British government, the two nations begin working together to develop a long-term solution to the matter of governance. A group of South African politicians is sent to Salisbury to begin talks with the Southern Rhodesia government. (Turn One of Three) Elsewhere, the ANC begins to demand political representation in the government, following a violent protest against growing ANC power in the nation by white South Africans. Led by Daniel François Malan, several Afrikaner politicians, businessmen, and industrialists attempt to get the Smuts government to sign into law apartheid, which would strangle ANC power in the government and isolate them from gaining ground in major cities. However, with the wealth and power built up in the black African population over the years, the ANC is able to form a unified front against the Malan-led opposition, leading to a stand-off between the two parties. With the threat of an all-out civil war in the nation, and Smuts' time in government running out, the Prime Minister moves to mediate the two forces. With blacks holding the clear majority in the nation, and no longer as controllable as they had been in the past, the South African government formulates a solution that will satisfy both sides. The initial plan is to give blacks their own homelands within the nation, while turning the major cities of Cape Town, Pretoria, Johannesburg, and Durban into "neutral zones", where both races will be allow equal rights. The two sides enter into negotiations, but make it clear that the government proposition is but a temporary solution. Until a permanent solution is devised, the African National Congress and the National Party of South Africa agree to run the nation as usual until the time comes to implement the new idea. For the time being, they focus on the Argentine embargo and the Brazilian military bases along the South African border. South Africa welcomes more than hundred thousand refugees from Great Britain to the nation, providing them with homes and South African citizenship. The action angers many Afrikaners, who fear that Smuts is attempting to swamp the Afrikaner population with British immigrants to overwhelm them with the higher birth rate of the British refugees. Nuclear research with the aid of the United States continues, with the SANEC working to develop a breakthrough. Economists project GDP growth for this year to be 4.4%, with the Argentine sanctions serving as a minor hit to the economy. The population growth for the year of 1946 was 4.3%, more than expected by the government, though enhanced by the influx of Turkish immigrants. Thanks to the greater degree of medical care provided to expecting mothers in the first year of their children's lives, the survival rate of infant children in South Africa has doubled. Elements of the South African Army set up military bases in Southern Angola as a deterrent to potential Brazilian aggressive. Many South Africans believe that it was too coincidental Portuguese-speaking Brazil set up military bases in Portuguese Africa so soon after South Africa attacked Portuguese-speaking Angola, and believe that the military bases may be a set up for something bigger. A naval base is set up in South African-controlled Cabinda, where it will serve South African warship operating in the Atlantic and the Bright of Bifra for extended periods of time. A military base and township spring up around the naval base to service the need of the military personnel in the enclave. The South African Navy begins a series of naval exercises in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean as part of a series of wargames in the defense of South Africa. Though the antiquated Argentine Navy isn't a major threat to South Africa, the Brazilians are the focus of the wargames. The SAS Rhodes returns from the United States, and Prime Minister Smuts quickly turns his attention to the race issue. 20 Atlas Arends are constructed for the air force, and sent to two airbases outside of Cape Town and Windhoek. The air force is also given 25 Atlas Aasvoël I's, which will be the last of the aircraft to be produced in South Africa. Any additional orders will be exclusively for export. The parliament of South Africa votes to annex Basutoland and Swaziland, leaving them as semi-independent union states, but under the aegis of South African governance. Troops are sent to occupy both nations, and set up new governments in their territories. With few military resources and little in the way of organized resistance, both states fall into line quickly as the SADF troops march into the two capital cities of Maseru and Mbabane. Also, the Seychelles and Mauritius are annexed by South Africa, which the government wishes to convert into an naval bases center for trade ships and warships passing through the region. 1600 troops from the South African Marines are sent to occupy the islands, and serve as the permanent military garrison for the two island groups.
  • Namibia: The Namibian Defense Forces construct a series of anti-aircraft batteries along the coastline of the nation, and sent a request in to the SADF headquarters for a shipment of jet fighters to serve in an interceptor role. Likewise, the potential for a third aircraft carrier to defense the coastline of Namibia and Southern Angola is proposed by the NDF commanders. Focus on nuclear research continues with the SANEC division in Namibia, with more U-352 produced by the research group for testing. Co-operation with the United States on the development of nuclear technology helps greatly with technical issues in South Africa, and the push for a breakthrough. Economic growth for the year of 1946 is 1.7%, stable growth given the downturn in immigration to Namibia, but not concerning to the government.
    • Southern Angola: The development of a public infrastructure worthy of an aspiring state seeking modern status continues quickly, with money pouring in from numerous sources allowing the construction of factories for employment, schools for education, and hospitals for medical care. The literacy rate of the state since South Africa's invasion has increased to a total of 19%, up from 6% in 1940. With the ANC in charge of the program, many have a chance at becoming literate and employable. An industrial complex in the capital of Namibe begins, seeking to turn the city into a center of industry for Angolans, and churn out modern goods and luxuries for the world market. As in South Africa, the introduction of modern healthcare as seen a spike in the survival rate of mothers and infants in southern Angola, with this years growth projected at 3.3% with the increased medical aid provided to the union state.
    • Indian Ocean territory is going to an Indian state. You're not annexing it -Feud
  • GEACOP: The joint GEACOP-Brazillian nuclear project continues for its 5th year. The war with the French ends, with Vietnam entering GEACOP. All members improve military and industry. Japan elects a new PM. The Kangde empror of Imperial China has a stroke, but survives. Work on planes in West Papua continues. The Manchurian oil wells are fully rebuilded
  • Ecuador: A coup occurs in Ecuador by Carlos Melendez and his followers. He begins by expanding the military as well as the infrastructure in the Andes. We ask for an alliance with Mexico, and we ask for a trade agreement with Brazil. We also ask to purchase weapons from the countries recovering from the world war, and will purchase them. Our main exports are bananas, cacao, fish, coffee, and sugar, but we begin exploring the rainforests in the east.
    • Spain offers to sell FM-24 and FM-29 machine guns to Ecuador for a reasonable price.
  • Second Spanish Republic: After a long awaited, scheduled election, Phillip Ferdinand comes to power after a close vote. After Ferdinand talked with the mining corporations, the talks went extremely bad, and the value of the companies continues to drop. To add insult to injury, miners start to strike for higher wages and more healthcare benefits. He says in his inaugural speech "La industria minera en ruinas, sólo un liderazgo fuerte puede traer renovar el gran poder que tenía." which translates to "The Mining industry in in ruins, only strong leadership can bring renew the great power it had." "Ferdinand also states in his inguaral speech. España tiene el potencial para convertirse en una gran potencia en Europa, con el liderazgo correcto, economía y equilibrio militar." which translates to "Spain has the potential to become a great power in Europe, with the right leadership, economy and military balance." Investments in the mining industry made by France and the USSR start to turn around the economy for the Republic of Spain. Rebuilding efforts continue in Gallicia, to restore the area to the way it was before the nationalist rebellion. Meanwhile, seeing Portugal as a threat and supplier of the Nationalist rebels, have confirmed his retreat and Portuguese support. Tensions start to escalate over accusations between the two nations, and secretly an invasion is planned for sometime next year. After seeing France repel the German Fascists, Spain decides to do the same to its Fascist neighbor Portugal. After signing the peace treaty to end the conflict, a surprise attack on Portugal emerges, with Philipe Ferdinand saying "Fascist Portugal is always a danger to Spain and her people; It must be removed from power. The last offensive takes place against Lisbon, hoping to topple the Fascist regime in the final battle. Meanwhile, income from the mining industry rises, and tech modernization continues. Spain asks United States if they could purchase American technology, to help modernize the nations technical level. The monarchist party also starts to gain followers, with almost 34% of the populations either registered or supporting the party. Spain purchases Congo, a former colony of the Belgian rump state. Meanwhile, troops are sent to Angola and Mozambique, to help protect the nation from foreign threats and to strengthen the ties between the natives and the colonists living there. Meanwhile, coal and raw materials are started to be exploited in the Northern region of Spain. Slowly this generates more and more profit, with the leaders keeping a close eye on the production levels. Machine guns, based off of the FM 24 and FM 29 models, are produced at a rapid pace, and are sent onto the international market. Aircraft similar to the CW-77 fighters are also started to be researched into, with plans coming to start producing them in about a year. [Mil/Econ Turn (Nation/Vassals)]
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union celebrates the death of the Polish traitors and the armistice signed with the Germans, and now the Soviet military aims to take full advantage of the situation and gain both revenge and retribution for its sacrifices. The Soviet military, still relatively fresh from its offenses in eastern Poland, begin to take the fight to the rest of the country to ensure that the new Communist government is in as much control as possible. With Germany focusing on the parts that they withdrew to, the Soviets along with their new Polish Communist allies make moves on other cities like Warsaw, Krakow, and Lublin, threatening to siege any that don't submit to the new Communist authority. In addition to that, Soviet forces occupy Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, liberating them after the successful operation that drove the Germans out of the Soviet Union. The Soviet industrial machine continues to work at a wartime pace, as the war is still not over, and rocket launchers and T-34s are continuously produced for the war effort. Planes are as well, and research into nuclear weapons and jet engines, as well as rockets, continues. The Soviet Union is considering Poland's offer, and until then proceeds with the planned invasion of Finland in an effort to bring the Soviet part of the war to an end.
    • Tuva: Tuva continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future.

  • France: With the war drawing close to an end, the French army holds in the Ruhr and Rhineland abusing it to power their current war machine. Though peace had been met during the time they had been waiting for the terms to be hashed out and the official treaty to be signed. While the French military had been sitting and waiting, the Germans used this opportunity to launch an offensive to reclaim the lost industry in the Ruhr and Rhineland. The Germans are successful in pushing back the French out of major areas, though total ejection of the French of the Ruhr was predicted to take another three months. With the war officially ending with the terms affirmed between the French and German politics, those who served and saw combat are advised to head home and live the rest of their lives with their families. Meanwhile, those who did not see combat are brought into the fore front of the military, along with the reserves moving into full active duty. The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves being planned to be raised. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. (Military/Economy turn)

We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 70,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer.
    • Kingdom of Yemen: The Military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. Oil profits also allow for the purchase of arms from other nations.
  • Romania: Mihai I is the King and Constantin Sănătescu is the Prime Minister. Romania has 230.000 soldiers. Romania creates a National System of Libraries in Romania that's public.

1946.5

The war continues in India. Pakistan expands to its OTL borders.

  • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostiliates with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the reintroduction of Chinese land back into the Republic.
  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 58%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and the state continued to invest upon the construction of a railroad system to complete link Turkey. An already existing railroad system in Greece certainly proved beneficial to the Turks as they were able to examine the Greek models and reconstruct their own. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern Soviet Yakovlev Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighter and the Soviet Lavochkin L-5 and Petlyavok Pe-3 bombers. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own, soon developing the Yenilmez Y-1 fighter. However, the Soviet fighters which were generally cheaper were still imported and orders for production of the Yenilmez Y-1 were not given. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. The project, however, continued scarcely making much gains, however. With rising Turkish influence in Cyprus and the Commonwealth having handed it over to Turkey, Turkish forces landed on the island and in a coup d'état, and brought forth Turkish control over Cyprus. In order to further expand Turkish influence, Turkey continued funding independence groups in Iraq and influencing such groups to lead a coup d'état over the weak Monarchy [Turn Five of Ten]. Along the same time, with the signing of the agreement with Jordania; Turkey soon set out to establish military bases within the nation and ships made their way to Jordania in order to provide armaments and with the sale of Panzer IV Tanks, StG 44s and jet fighters from Germany; general opinion regarding Germany developed. Regardless of that, people still chose to rather immigrate to South Africa.
    • ​Turkish Republic of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Prime Minister, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Prime Minister had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Prime Minister announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece.
  • Brazil: The Nation of Brazil continues to develop industrially with it officially nearing Japan's level of Industrial development. This is a momentous occasion for the Brazilian nation as it has gained ever growing international prestige and recognition as well as a new ability to project power. The Nation itself begins to consider itself a developing Great Power and due to its PATO status. The Brazilian industries particularly in shipbuilding, and Aeronautics develops significantly with civilian aerial development taking off heavily. The Brazilian army officially produces its new tank, the EH-20 Panther Tank. The Tank has a much better maneuverability than the Viper variants and maintains a better ability to hold up the Shock Doctrine of the Brazilian Army. This Tank maintains a heavy gun as it uses a 90mm gun and it maintains its five-man crew compliment. The Brazilian air force begins to develop its next generation fighter looking to upgrade from its current air fleet. The Remainder continues remain as is but the long range bomber squadrons are modified to have better fuel efficiency. The Brazilian Marine corps officially modifies the EH-20 tanks and EE-01A2 tanks as marine tanks as well with the medium tanks being amphibious to some degree now. Other mechanized vehicles as well are developed particularly armed troop carriers and IFV's both of which have some moderate Amphibious ability. The Brazilian military sends the top of the line of its equipment to its bases in Spanish Africa and also ships off various landing equipments to them as well in order to give them amphibious landing capabilities. The Brazilian Navy lays down two new light carriers with the expressed purpose of sending them into overseas bases. The Navy also lays down five new destroyers for the fleet. The New Submarine designs continue as well. Brazilian nation also begins further attempts to integrate the Guyanas as another state in later years. Brazil officially deploys troops to the South Atlantic islands.
    • Venezuela: Mil/Eco
    • Guyanan Confed: Mil/Eco 
    • Argentinean Dip: We request that Brazil deploy troops to some of the south Atlantic Islands due to the small size of our armed forces.
    • Brazil Dip: Agreed.
  • South Africa: The South African government reorganizes the manner in which parliament seats are won in elections. Rural electoral districts are resized, covering larger areas of land, lowering the number of seats gained in rural areas, while increasing the number of seats in urban areas. Some in the National Party believe this to be a ploy by the Smuts government to weaken their electoral gains in expectation of the 1948 elections. Negotiations between the NP and ANC breakdown after only a few months of talking. Jan Smuts secretly promises the ANC political power in the future, believe that racial integration of South Africa is inevitable and must be facilitated while he still has time to do so. Many white South Africans not of Afrikaner descent, agree with Smuts position, understanding that in a pragmatic setting, one can not forever keep 90% of the population disenfranchised and outside of the economy of South Africa. With the political and economical gains achieved by the ANC, as well as the increased education and economic independence of many black Africans, has meant white-minority rule will be weakened and will be an unsustainable option for South Africa. Afrikaners led by D.F. Malan campaign to get the votes needed for the 1948 elections, but find themselves in a losing political war. The South African Navy conducts combat exercises off of the coast of northern Angola, moving south before docking at Namibe. Combat exercises across Angola take place as the government of South Africa seeks to affirm its willingness to defend its land against potential Brazilian invasion. The construction of a nation-wide highway for civilian use begins, with plans for a series of highways connecting South Africa's largest cities underway. Likewise, highways connecting the cities of South Africa to those in Namibia and Angola are also on the table. The SADF begins work on a new tank, seeking to combine the technological support gained from overseas to the military needs to the nation. 35 new Atlas Arends are constructed and distributed across the nation's airbases, ten being sent to the island of Mauritius to serve as the air wing of the local garrison there. The literacy program continues with much success, with several tens of thousands of black Africans learning how to read and write. Many of them entering into schools, with many more joining seeking to achieve a higher education. The education wing of the ANC estimates that at least half of the black population will be literate by 1950, and more than a quarter fully educated by 1955. Currently, 10% have attained a secondary education, while less that 2% have been to and complete college and university. The leaders of the ANC state that they will be doing all they can do to increase the literacy rate among blacks in South Africa and Africa in general. The African National Congress sends delegates to other parts of Africa to discuss the possibility of opening region branches in other countries, such as Nigeria, Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Liberia. Special focus on Liberia is given, regarding its status as a state created for freed slaves, and founding members of the ANC are sent to work on opening a region branch in Monrovia. The formation of a governmental system in Southern Rhodesia in line with the union state model in South Africa, and its prime minister, Sir Godfrey Huggins, is affirmed as the future leader of a Southern Rhodesia in union with South Africa's organization. (Turn Two of Three) The SANEC continues its drive to have a nuclear breakthrough by 1952, and makes a request to the government for a budget increase of more than 15%, which is immediately granted by Pretoria. Fourteen patrol boats are constructed in Durban to protect the littoral asset of the nation.
    • Namibia: The SANEC's division in Namibia produces a ton of U-352, and sends it to its field division in the desert for storage. The supply is guarded by a force of 250 NDF personnel and 12 heavy tanks to prevent anything from happening to it. Several industrial complexes are constructed for military expansion programs, with a tank factory built outside of the city of Swakopmund north of Walvis Bay, and imports several thousand workers to tend to the assembly lines. Economic growth remains slow, but stable.
    • Southern Angola: Education remains a priority in southern Angola, with more of the population attaining an education of respectable degree. Employment of the population continues to grow as agriculture and industry expand in the cities of Namibe and Namacunde. Poverty remains prevalent, but the government of southern Angola is confident that the poverty levels should be decreased by the 1960s to around 25%, while the unemployment rate should be less than 15% in the later 1950s.
    • Lesotho & Swaziland: Lesotho and Swaziland are immediately transformed into major industrial centers as they border the heartlands of South Africa. Investment into their capital cities helps with the financial incentive needed to get the industries off of the ground. Mining in Swaziland begin to growth overnight as South African industrialists step in supervise the mining operations in the state. In Lesotho, a finished goods industry is built-up into the state, where raw materials will be shipped to, and turned into finished goods that will cut down the costs of goods in other parts of the nation. Census are held in both territories by South African officials. The census reveals a population of 186,914 inhabitants residing in Swaziland and 691,897 in Lesotho.
    • Mauritius & Seychelles: Construction of a military base in Mauritius begins, with primary focus on a naval base given to support the planned formation of an Indian Ocean fleet of the South African Navy given. An ANC party branch is set up on the island to serve as a liaison between the black Africans on the island and the government of South Africa on the mainland. Economic development has gone as far as the government can see, but the ANC believes that more can be done on the island. As for Seychelles, another naval base is constructed on the island, but with plans to serve as a refueling base instead of a true naval operations center. The base provides hundreds of jobs for the local inhabitants, and plans for a tourist resort are underway by commercial centers. Another census held by South Africa indicates the population of 428,331 inhabitants on Mauritius and 34,414 in Seychelles.
    • Ethiopian Dip: We gladly accept your offer of the African National Congress.
  • Argentina: The Navy receives the additional heavy landing ship. The Coast Guard receives the four cutters, and looks into some smaller counter piracy boats. Work on the transportation infrastructure continues with linking going into Uruguay and into Montevideo. Some officials want to lift the sanctions on South Africa, but pressure from Brazil prevents this at the current time. The Air Force receives another 12 fighter jets, and after trials, the Navy receives 12 fighter jets for the two aircraft carriers increase air defense. The Air Force also receives an additional six heavy bombers. Work continues in collaboration with Brazil on our nuclear weapons program. The helicopter design is still on the boards with the tail rotor and engine stabilizers designed. Work on an assault rifle continues, with prototypes planned for the mid 1947's using designs pieced together from Brazil. One submarine is completed, and the other two are started, and due to be complete by mid to late 1947. The hospitals are 80% complete around the nation, and more doctors return to the nation. A medical hospital opens in Buenos Aires. Influence continues on Paraguay. (Turn Three of Six) (Military, infrastructure turn)
    • Uruguay: We receive two more destroyers, and two corvettes from Argentina. The infrastructure continues to be improved and speeds up the transportation of goods between the port cities and the interior. There are talks of purchasing fighter jets, but currently there are no plans. Some in Congress want to join Argentina as a province, and legislation is drafted. First the Uruguayan Congress will have to approve it, then Argentina will have to agree. Work continues on the hospitals with collaboration with Argentina. (Mil/Eco turn)
  • Romania: Romania wants to get Swiss jets, French tanks to be more morden and can exchange oil and money. Industria Aeronautică Română can assist other countries to help to make a jet engine.
    • Swiss Dip: Our jets aren't near completion, but if you want IAR to help they could be completed quicker and we can give you a better price on them. JL sigBlason royal des Vintimille en Cettatie 13:58, March 14, 2015 (UTC)
    • OK, we can help and we want to get ten.
  • Second Spanish Republic: After a long awaited, scheduled election, Phillip Ferdinand comes to power after a close vote. After Ferdinand talked with the mining corporations, the talks went extremely bad, and the value of the companies continues to drop. To add insult to injury, miners start to strike for higher wages and more healthcare benefits. He says in his inaugural speech "La industria minera en ruinas, sólo un liderazgo fuerte puede traer renovar el gran poder que tenía." which translates to "The Mining industry in in ruins, only strong leadership can bring renew the great power it had." "Ferdinand also states in his inguaral speech. España tiene el potencial para convertirse en una gran potencia en Europa, con el liderazgo correcto, economía y equilibrio militar." which translates to "Spain has the potential to become a great power in Europe, with the right leadership, economy, and military balance." Investments in the mining industry made by France and the USSR start to turn around the economy for the Republic of Spain. Rebuilding efforts continue in Gallicia, to restore the area to the way it was before the nationalist rebellion. Meanwhile, seeing Portugal as a threat and supplier of the Nationalist rebels, have confirmed his retreat and Portuguese support. Tensions start to escalate over accusations between the two nations, and secretly an invasion is planned for sometime next year. After seeing France repel the German Fascists, Spain decides to do the same to its Fascist neighbor Portugal. After signing the peace treaty to end the conflict, a surprise attack on Portugal emerges, with Philipe Ferdinand saying "Fascist Portugal is always a danger to Spain and her people; It must be removed from power. The last offensive takes place against Lisbon, hoping to topple the Fascist regime in the final battle. Meanwhile, income from the mining industry rises, and tech modernization continues. Spain asks United States if they could purchase American technology, to help modernize the nations technical level. The monarchist party also starts to gain followers, with almost 34% of the populations either registered or supporting the party. Spain purchases Congo, a former colony of the Belgian rump state. Meanwhile, troops are sent to Angola and Mozambique, to help protect the nation from foreign threats and to strengthen the ties between the natives and the colonists living there. Meanwhile, coal and raw materials are started to be exploited in the Northern region of Spain. Slowly this generates more and more profit, with the leaders keeping a close eye on the production levels. Machine guns, based off of the FM 24 and FM 29 models, are produced at a rapid pace, and are sent onto the international market. Aircraft similar to the CW-77 fighters are also started to be researched into, with plans coming to start producing them in about a half year. Meanwhile, natives in colonies like Angola and Mosquambe are given more rights, being stated as "a movement to educate and to treat the entire human race as equals. [Mil/Econ Turn (Nation/Vassals)]
  • Canada: Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King gives a speech outlining the role Canada plays in the world to the House of Commons that was publicly broadcasted across the country. In this speech, the Prime Minister tells of the crisis with the end of the United Kingdom, and the way Canada has dealt with it: accepting almost 600,000 refugees, over a third of the Royal Navy, though many ships will be sold or scrapped due to their age, and the responsibilities of the old British Empire now rest on Canada. However, Prime Minister King states that Canada can not fill the shoes of the now gone UK, and that is why the colonies were given their independence. However, Canada would not abandon the former colonies, and established the Commonwealth of nations for them to join: established as an economic free trade zone to help build up the under-developed nations in Africa and the Middle East, while sharing cultural and political alliances. However, and the Prime Minister made this clear, it was not a military alliance, and Canada will not join any "African bush war." An alliance with other "freedom loving nations of the Americans and Europe" is now the primary international commitment for Canada, through the Pan-Atlantic Treaty Organization. The Prime Minister also stated that many of the islands of the former Empire could not be maintained by Canada, and hence why most had their sovereignty transferred to the nations that was closest to them: Cyprus to Turkey, Falklands and South Atlantic Islands to Argentina, the Caribbean possessions to Brazil, etc. However, Gibraltar, Hong Kong and Diego Garcia were to be maintained as Canadian possessions, and Canadian troops and British Loyalists had been sent to maintain a garrison in all three locations. Finally, Prime Minister King announced that, with the approval of King George VI, Canada will lose its Dominion status, and officially be renamed as the Kingdom of Canada. The current political constitution will remain the same, except now the King will exercise the powers of the Governor-General. In an appeal to tensions between Brazil, Argentina and South Africa, Canada offers to mediate between the three nations to resolve diplomatic issues. To finish the speech, Prime Minister King denounces the People's Union of Britain for being Communists.
    • I seriously question one-third of the British Navy going to Canada. Yes, I am aware that refugees would leave Communist Britain for Canada but I doubt they'd be bringing fleet carriers and destroyers with them. 
    • Until the mods strike down anything Canada has said or done, then I'm going with what I have written. If you don't like it, take it up with them. Or, in the words of Pierre Trudeau: "Just watch me."
  • Iran: With American weapons arriving in forces we officially establish an air force and start to develop our own version of American planes, tanks and guns. The economy continue to flourish due to the global situation and support to Arab nationalists and Pakistan without using American weapons to prevent a conflict. We ask France and Germany if they still have any useless ships that we could buy.
    • The United States offers to give Iran ships in exchange for oil.
    • Iranian Dip: We accept the offer.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • Australia: Infrastructure is improved. Thanks to the effects of the Treaty of Batavia, the population is rising more quickly. The project of a railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built. Following the collapse of the British Empire, the nation declares bloodless independence and keeps the name Commonwealth of Australia.
  • India: India continues to improve its economy and build up its military. The Indian population continues to grow faster and appear 500,000 people each year, as a few new farms are built mostly on rivers. Indian Road System upgrades roads from gravel to asphalt to make easier travel between towns. Industry continues improved to be one of best works in India. About 1000 tanks are built by Indian Army. Indian armies continues to push into the newly independent Pakistan during the Indo-Pakistani War. Reach on Jet engine begins. Meanwhile, two Indian automobile manufacturer companies named Hindustan Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra, which war founded five years ago, grows popular in India by producing and selling famous Indian cars ever made.
    • Iran Dip: We propose to host a peace conference in Tehran to end the Indo-Pakistani war.
  • Ecuador:Despite Carlos Melendez's coup, he tries to push more progressive and Liberal policies on the country, as he claimed he took power just to help the nation. He improves the military as well as the economy, and our exploration of the Oriente continues.We ask to purchase machine guns and aircraft from the nations of WWII that would like to disarm. We also become an ally to PATO, without joining, as we are not on the Atlantic. We consider forming a Pacific version of PATO, but do not make any actions yet. Melendez also makes immigration much easier in Ecuador, as he believes that it will help provide growth and new ideas to the nation. As part of our campaign to improve the military, we build a naval base on Isla de San Cristobal in the Galapagos. We begin to construct plans for a new tank model, which we hope to be done by late 1948. Melendez also hopes to improve Public schooling, so as to improve the technology of the country.
    • Brazil Dip: We offer Ecuador inclusion into the developing South American economic zone which now includes nearly the entire continent. We will make a few investments for the signature of an economic treaty with Brazil and maintaining of the current political situation in Ecuador for the time being
    • Ecuador: We accept. We'd like it to be called the South American Union of Nations (SAUN)
  • Jordania: Large immigration of European Jews to the Holy Land continues (most notably British Jews, numbering 50,000, who are escaping the Communist takeover). The government concentates its efforts to deal with the flood of Jewish immigrants fleeing the European conflict with the nation's economy being improved. The trans-highway network is completed. Efforts are also made to reduce tensions between the different ethnic groups after the Arab revolt. Our military stands at 65,000. More PAI Hoopoe are produced and used to enlarge our air force. With Turkish support the nation's military is modernised with new weapons and equipment replacing any outdated equipment. Trade is expanded with Germany and Turkish forces begin to build military bases in the nation.(Military/Economic). Commonwealth nations can now vote on where the next commonwealth games will be held: http://althistory.wikia.com/wiki/Commonwealth_of_Nations_(Axis_vs_Allies:_Resurrection_Map_Game) 
    • Ammon: Infrastructure is improved. Archaeological expeditions are given the Emir's blessing allowing for many expeditions to take place in the region. In light of recent laws and efforts in Palestine, Transjordan also puts in place a series of laws to reduce tensions between Muslims and Christians. The Emir increases the size of the Transjordanian army to 15,000. Uranium mining beings to expand in the region, though most of the surplus materials going to Turkey, with many Jordanian scientists looking into the possibility to develop a nuclear programme of their own. (Military/Economic)
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Turkey shall construct a total of three military bases and deploy 6000 soldiers. The military bases would be at six km North-East of Amman, Near the border with Egypt, and at Nablus. Two naval bases are to be constructed at the coastlines of Haifa and Tel Aviv where 20 ships and 500 marines will be present. Therefore, a total of 6500 troops will be deployed in the Republic of Jordania. The bases will have to be maintained by Jordanian authorities, and Jordania will also have to accommodate the soldiers. Meanwhile, uranium mining will be undertaken by Turkish companies which shall hire Jordanian locals and a railroad will be constructed from the uranium mines to Haifa. This railroad will have to be constructed jointly by Turkish - Jordanian authorities. In return, Jordania will be provided with cheap armaments and the Jordanian military will receive training from Turkish commanders. Moreover, Turkey would be willing to develop Jordanian ports. 
    • Jordanian Dip: We agree to these terms.
  • USGN: Military and infrastructure are improved. The standing military holds 100.000 troops. The military greatly benefits from the deal with Germany, and we have up-to-date weaponry and vehicles. We begin the build of three aircraft cruisers. We also begin research into new jets. PATO membership is achieved.
  • Belgium: Spaak, the Minister of Belgium is so confident to join PATO to make even support for the army and our hope for a great company of organization, Meanwhile, the military improves and economy, despite even loss for our Flanders it's not possible to give it back, even there will be possible way to get an access to the sea.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 70,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer. With support from the Germans, Saudi Arabia moves on Kuwait.
    • Kingdom of Yemen: The Military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. Oil profits also allow for the purchase of arms from other nations. Yemen moves on Aden, hoping to reclaim the Greater Yemeni Area.
    • America is helping you, too.
    • Iran Dip: We offer support to Saudi Arabia in the form of troops and supplies.
  • The United States continues to build up its military. However, many old and obsolete ships, tanks, and other things are scrapped, mothballed, or sold in order to make way for the construction of a new, more powerful armed force. The Navy begins to construct more carriers which are larger in size than older versions. Also, the Navy begins to look into nuclear power, especially for submarines and perhaps even ships. Meanwhile, a number of Barracuda-class submarines are built. As the situation in Mexico becomes even more chaotic, bombers are sent to help the Mexican loyalists take out the enemy. Regardless, many in the federal government insist that the United States officially needs to occupy Mexico. The United Army Air Corps becomes an independent wing of the Armed Forces as the United States Air Force. Also, more jet fighters are built, but Air Force engineers look into swept-wing jet fighters. Thanks to German information and designs, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics begins to experiment with rocket planes. Together with the help of the Air Force, they construct the Bell X-1, the first manned plane to exceed the speed of sound. It is regarded as a great success but is kept secret. Meanwhile, we continue to help foreign nations such as China, Iran and Saudi Arabia and continue the oil thing in Colombia. There is also a growth in the economy and a rise in birth rates. The US also continues the military occupation of Haiti and the Bahamas. Hawaii is admitted to the Union as the 50th state. In New York City, work begins on the expansion of the subway system. The US Coast Guard also continues to perform regular patrols in the Caribbean, especially around its territories such as Puerto Rico. In the elections, the Republicans take control of the House of Representatives. Work begins on more nuclear weapons. Also, some of the scientists who were involved in the Manhattan Project begin to suggest the potential of thermonuclear weapons.
    • In the Bahamas, there is economic growth. British elements of the government and military begin to be replaced by Americans. Communism is outlawed.
    • The Commonwealth of the Philippines experiences economic buildup and the construction of infrastructure. The people of the Philippines elect their first governor. However, many rightfully believe that the elections were rigged and continue to call for the creation of an independent Philippines.
    • The United States continues the military occupation of Haiti. Haiti remains under the control of military Governor Eisenhower, who begins the construction of a national highway system as a small scale test for the potential building of a highway system in the United States.
  • German Reich: A year after the war ended Germany continues to rebuild a devastated Rhineland using the large amounts of supplies and raw materials granted by the U.S.A. and Brazil. Life in western Germany is slowly starting to return to normal as the volunteer and drafted workers help rebuild large areas damaged or exploited by the French. Rationing is slowly easing up as resources are becoming more available to the general population, many in the army are getting released and returning to their families, lots of these decide to volunteer as well to help rebuild their nation. Major corporations move back into the Rhine particularly Krupp, which put the steel factories back to work in the Ruhr Valley. Industrialization in Silesia, Austria, and throughout the Rhineland continues. In an attempt to increase productivity Berlin in co-ordination with major corporations and Industrialists begins rebuilding the extensive Rhineland railway system and improving the system in the rest of the country. Exportation of Steel, weapons, consumer goods, and other products begins again mainly to the U.S.A, Brazil, Canada, Turkey, China, and Germany's allies in Europe. The first national elections in over a decade are held in Germany with the Centre Party, and Conservative Party pulling a surprising victory over the Social democrats. The Centre Party seeing that they were behind in the votes formed a common front with the Conservative party to form a coalition government in the final months of polling. Despite this the Social Democrats form an overwhelming 45% of the Reichstag giving the opposition a very strong voice in the government. Berlin, and Vienna quickly regain their status as the political hubs of the Reich. The intelectual circles of Vienna remain largely left wing, while Berlin remains a melting pot for political and social philosophies. The cultural explosion continues without an end in sight with thousands of new artists, dancers, and musicians popping up across the country. Jazz continues to pick up in popularity. large scale scientific research continues with the greatest minds in the Reich working on a variety of projects. The nuclear program continues full steam ahead, it is now believed that Germany with Brazilian and Swiss co-operation will have its first bomb in 1948. With the process for enriching of Uranium and plutonium fully developed the Program is nearly at an end with the only thing left to do is develop a means of fission within a safe environment and to develop a stable container. Development of a large data processor begins as the German high command sees a need for faster devices (in effect I'm looking to make the first "computer." The actual first one was made during World War Two, so this is a bit late.). Rocket engineering and engineering development continues. The G 06 has its final kinks worked out and mass production of the rifle begins, with it slowly replacing the more outdated weapons of the armed forces. development of more modern smgs and machine guns begin as well. Mauser and the Austrian based Steyr Mannlicher agree to a merger of the two companies creating a massive new entity known as Mauser-Steyr, many unsatisfied with the new company, and its supposed policies move onto Hamburg founding Hekler & Koch, a smaller arms firm. Both firms are contracted by the German government to develop future assault rifles based on the G 06 model. Development of new fighters based on the old Me 262 known as the Me NT 20. Realizing that to get the kind of tank they want, Kraus-Maffei and Krupp puts a jet engine into the overall design of the Panzer V a new medium tank that proves a superior model over previous ones (something of a hybrid of the OTL Panther and the British Centurion tank, with out the flaws of either). While not quite where the Government wants it is a massive improvement over previous tanks and the government orders production of the new tank to begin. The Panzer V is widely recognized as the first step in revolutionizing Tank warfare by many in the German military community. The Horten Ho 229 enters small scale production to be serve as a special part of the air force, while tweaking of its system continues to work out the kinks. The government decides to set up a military government in the recently re-annexed provinces of what used to be Poland, establishing the Posen-Prussia District. Berlin and offers Czechoslovakia them a free trade agreement. (Mod Response, please.) Germany continues to expand its trade with Turkey, and Saudi Arabia. In secret Germany offers the Saudis and Turks the StG 44 to help them improve their military strength as well as older tanks and jets which are still years ahead of anything the other Middle Eastern countries may have. Some 2000 German volunteers also offer their services as advisors in exchange for boarding and German standard military salaries with benefits.
    • Posen-Prussia District: With Berlin granted total authority to the occupying forces a new administration is set up. All Germans living within the area are granted German citizenship at once while Poles are issued resident cards, stripping them of their nationality. However, it is decided that those who can prove their will to learn German and live within a German state will be granted German citizenship. Those deemed docile are permitted to remain within the Reich. However, those who are considered restive are slowly collected to be expelled across the border into the Soviet Union. German families who had lands taken from them after World War One are granted half of their original lands, while the rest is set aside for settlement by Germans coming from the East. With the trickle of Germans slowly increasing many are settled in the districts, and provided with supplies and government benefits until an active economy can be restored to the region. Military checkpoints are set up to keep the conquered Poles under control and to protect the German civilians moving into the area. 
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union celebrates the death of the Polish traitors and the armistice signed with the Germans, and now the Soviet military aims to take full advantage of the situation and gain both revenge and retribution for its sacrifices. The Soviet military, still relatively fresh from its offenses in eastern Poland, begin to take the fight to the rest of the country to ensure that the new Communist government is in as much control as possible. With Germany focusing on the parts that they withdrew to, the Soviets along with their new Polish Communist allies make moves on other cities like Warsaw, Krakow, and Lublin, threatening to siege any that don't submit to the new Communist authority. In addition to that, Soviet forces occupy Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, liberating them after the successful operation that drove the Germans out of the Soviet Union. The Soviet industrial machine continues to work at a wartime pace, as the war is still not over, and rocket launchers and T-34s are continuously produced for the war effort. Planes are as well, and research into nuclear weapons and jet engines, as well as rockets, continues. The Soviet Union is considering Poland's offer, and until then proceeds with the planned invasion of Finland in an effort to bring the Soviet part of the war to an end.
    • Tuva: Tuva continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. 
    • Mongolia: Continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. Until then, Mongolian forces continue to prepare and train in case war breaks out in the far east. 
    • East Turkestan: East Turkestani officials continue to talk with Soviet and Chinese officials in peace talks. Until the outcome of such talks, the military continues to train and prepare in case war breaks out.

    • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostiliates with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the reintroduction of Chinese land back into the Republic.
  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 58%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and the state continued to invest upon the construction of a railroad system to complete link Turkey. An already existing railroad system in Greece certainly proved beneficial to the Turks as they were able to examine the Greek models and reconstruct their own. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosphorus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern Soviet Yakovlev Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighter and the Soviet Lavochkin L-5 and Petlyavok Pe-3 bombers. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own, soon developing the Yenilmez Y-1 fighter. However, the Soviet fighters which were generally cheaper were still imported and orders for production of the Yenilmez Y-1 were not given. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. In order to further expand Turkish influence, Turkey continued funding independence groups in Iraq and influencing such groups to lead a coup d'état over the weak Monarchy [Turn Six of Ten]. Groups particularly funded included Assyrian, Kurdish, Yazidi, Shi'ite and Anti - British groups. With the sale of Panzer IV Tanks, StG 44s and jet fighters from Germany; general opinion regarding Germany developed. Regardless of that, people still chose to rather immigrate to South Africa.
    • ​Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. The Republic officially became a Dominion of Turkey. However, it was still bound to the Treaty of Athens.
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war.
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, 6km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Turkish - Soviet Diplomacy: Turkey expresses its desire to purchase the T-54 and T-55 Tanks from the Soviet Union, and participate in a joint technology sharing thing between Turkey and USSR. •-•
  • Romania: Romania: Mihai I is the King and Petru Groza is the Prime Minister. Romania has 250.000 soldiers. Industria Aeronautică Română is assisting Switzerland to build the jet motor for a plane. Romania gets a leader that is more socialist, but it's not Communist. Romania gets a lot of oil and can sell and exchange for modern weapons.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • Australia: Sir William John McKell is elected President. Economy is improved. The project of a railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built.
    • Commonwealth announcement: Australia and relevant dependencies are invited to vote for the 1950 Commonwealth games venue.
  • Ecuador: We ask the nations of South America to join SAUN (South American Union of Nations). Next, we continue to work on designs for our new tank model. We improve the economy, and we hope to grow industrially. We also build infrastructure, particularly between Quito and Guayaquil, as this is the most important roadway in Ecuador and it is currently unsafe. We begin construction of a passenger airport in Guayaquil, as we believe that it would be safer to have a major passenger airport there than in the mountainous Quito. We prepare our football team to try to qualify for the 1950 World Cup. We are increasingly scared of the military advancement of Colombia, and ask that they promise not to invade. Until then, a couple of outdated Argentinean ships and planes arrive in Ecuador just in case.
    • The South American Union isn't plausible yet. Also, it's being propagated by the continent's largest economy and nation when it does happen -Feud
    • Argentinean Dip: Three armored cruisers built in 1898 are offered for sale to Ecuador.
    • Ecuador: We agree.
  • Second Spanish Republic: After a long awaited, scheduled election, Phillip Ferdinand comes to power after a close vote. After Ferdinand talked with the mining corporations, the talks went extremely bad, and the value of the companies continues to drop. To add insult to injury, miners start to strike for higher wages and more healthcare benefits. He says in his inaugural speech "La industria minera en ruinas, sólo un liderazgo fuerte puede traer renovar el gran poder que tenía." which translates to "The Mining industry in in ruins, only strong leadership can bring renew the great power it had." "Ferdinand also states in his inguaral speech. España tiene el potencial para convertirse en una gran potencia en Europa, con el liderazgo correcto, economía y equilibrio militar." which translates to "Spain has the potential to become a great power in Europe, with the right leadership, economy, and military balance." Investments in the mining industry made by France and the USSR start to turn around the economy for the Republic of Spain. Rebuilding efforts continue in Gallicia, to restore the area to the way it was before the nationalist rebellion. Meanwhile, seeing Portugal as a threat and supplier of the Nationalist rebels, have confirmed his retreat and Portuguese support. Tensions start to escalate over accusations between the two nations, and secretly an invasion is planned for sometime next year. After seeing France repel the German Fascists, Spain decides to do the same to its Fascist neighbor Portugal. After signing the peace treaty to end the conflict, a surprise attack on Portugal emerges, with Philipe Ferdinand saying "Fascist Portugal is always a danger to Spain and her people; It must be removed from power. The last offensive takes place against Lisbon, hoping to topple the Fascist regime in the final battle. Meanwhile, income from the mining industry rises, and tech modernization continues. Spain asks United States if they could purchase American technology, to help modernize the nations technical level. The monarchist party also starts to gain followers, with almost 34% of the populations either registered or supporting the party. Spain purchases Congo, a former colony of the Belgian rump state. Meanwhile, troops are sent to Angola and Mozambique, to help protect the nation from foreign threats and to strengthen the ties between the natives and the colonists living there. Meanwhile, coal and raw materials are started to be exploited in the Northern region of Spain. Slowly this generates more and more profit, with the leaders keeping a close eye on the production levels. Machine guns, based off of the FM 24 and FM 29 models, are produced at a rapid pace, and are sent onto the international market. Aircraft similar to the CW-77 start being produced, mainly for the Spanish military in Angolia. Meanwhile, natives in colonies like Angola and Mosquambe are given more rights, being stated as "a movement to educate and to treat the entire human race as equals. [Mil/Econ Turn (Nation/Vassals)]
  • German Reich: A year after the war ended Germany continues to rebuild a devastated Rhineland using the large amounts of supplies and raw materials granted by the U.S.A. and Brazil. Life in western Germany is slowly starting to return to normal as the volunteer and drafted workers help rebuild large areas damaged or exploited by the French. Rationing is slowly easing up as resources are becoming more available to the general population, many in the army are getting released and returning to their families, lots of these decide to volunteer as well to help rebuild their nation. Major corporations move back into the Rhine particularly Krupp, which put the steel factories back to work in the Ruhr Valley. Industrialization in Silesia, Austria, and throughout the Rhineland continues. In an attempt to increase productivity Berlin in co-ordination with major corporations and Industrialists begins rebuilding the extensive Rhineland railway system and improving the system in the rest of the country. Exporting of steel, weapons, consumer goods, and other products begins again mainly to the U.S.A, Brazil, Canada, Turkey, China, and Germany's allies in Europe. The first national elections in over a decade are held in Germany with the Centre Party, and Conservative Party pulling a surprising victory over the Social democrats. The Centre Party seeing that they were behind in the votes formed a common front with the Conservative party to form a coalition government in the final months of polling. Despite this the Social Democrats form an overwhelming 45% of the Reichstag giving the opposition a very strong voice in the government. Berlin, and Vienna quickly regain their status as the political hubs of the Reich. The intelectual circles of Vienna remain largely left wing, while Berlin remains a melting pot for political and social philosophies. The cultural explosion continues without an end in sight with thousands of new artists, dancers, and musicians popping up across the country. Jazz continues to pick up in popularity. large scale scientific research continues with the greatest minds in the Reich working on a variety of projects. The nuclear program continues full steam ahead, it is now believed that Germany with Brazilian and Swiss co-operation will have its first bomb in 1948. With the process for enriching of Uranium and plutonium fully developed the Program is nearly at an end with the only thing left to do is develop a means of fission within a safe environment and to develop a stable container. Development of a large data processor begins as the German high command sees a need for faster devices (in effect I'm looking to make the first "computer." The actual first one was made during World War Two, so this is a bit late.). Rocket engineering, and engineering development continues. The G 06 has its final kinks worked out and mass production of the rifle begins, with it slowly replacing the more outdated weapons of the armed forces. development of more modern SMGs and machine guns begin as well. Mauser and the Austrian based Steyr Mannlicher agree to a merger of the two companies creating a massive new entity known as Mauser-Steyr, many unsatisfied with the new company, and its supposed policies move onto Hamburg founding Hekler & Koch, a smaller arms firm.

    • Argentinian Dip: We request to purchase five assault rifles and aid in developing our own version. 
    • German Dip: Germany agrees to sell Argentina several StG 44's, as well as old panzer IIIs and IVs.
    • Argentinean Dip: We thank the Germans for selling us the rifles to help our development. We decline the tanks, as we have our own tanks similar in age and role as the Panzer III and IV, but propose working on a join main battle tank together with a 125 mm gun, and built heavier.
    • That concept doesn't exist yet, neither does the concept of any gun larger than 90mm in a tank. -Feud
    • Actually, Feud, the Centurian tank was 105 mm, and it was made in 1946, if I'm not mistaken. With Blood and Iron (talk) 15:40, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
  • Belgium: Wallonia is still a rump state and under German protection. Minister of Belgium is confident that German can defend us if the attack is happening upon us. The Belgian troops is now 50,000 after a stragetic reason of losing Belgian troops could be evading action and busier work. For some reason, PATO is right to join for Belgium and it provides for the organization.
  • Switzerland: continues work on a jet project and a test model is flown in the spring for the first time. Some cantons begin to adopt laws to require nuclear-resistent bomb shelters in all homes and the first few are built. The government passes a law following a referendum to officially have a leader, being the head of the major party in the government, which will come into force in 1949. Switzerland begins to further influence Liechtenstein [Turn One of Six].
  • Brazil: The Nation of Brazil continues its development particularly of its Industrial ability. The population of Brazil reaches about 48.1 million with a major population boom occuring. The Brazilian Navy in particularly begins to further Develop as it now fields a relatively large fleet of various capital ships and a large auxiliary fleet. The Brazilian fleet in general is able to expand its power projection cababilities significantly especially its ability to deploy troops rather than just troops. The Brazilian Army is able to deploy heavily as well but the general armed forces size remains the same size. The Brazilian air force continues to expand as well adding more F-270's to the Air fleet. The Brazilian economy continues to develop with a 6.7% growth this year predicted but a certain economic condition revoling around debt potentially causing issues for the expanded growth. The Brazilian industries particularly in arms, steel, and shipbuilding continue to expand significantly, However, Bauxite (aluminum) continues to be an expanding industry and Brazil now officially works its way into a top spot of Bauxite mining and refining into aluminum. The Brazilian government, however, levels a heavier control in order to prevent flooding the market with it and driving its price down. Manganese continues to be developed as a mining industry as well with it being used to Produce Stainless steel cheaply and without major issues some other nations have in production. The Brazilian arms industry continues development of a rifle based on the StG 44 but due to some design considerations the research is forced to start from scratch. The Brazilian military begins designs on a new submarine. The air force and army forces are deployed to the island territories in the Caribbean. The Brazilian Highway network, taking some cues from the German system, continues to develop with many major coastal roadways and highways now completed. The Railway system has also expanded significantly since the 1930's with many railways pushing into the interior now.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela begins to develop industrially further as its oil refining capabilities expand significantly. The Venezuelan military develops a reserve of forces about 250,000 in order to mobilize a bit further in case of war. The Moderate industrialization of Venezuela continues with commodities industry being built up in a rather quick fashion. The Venezuelan nation begins to develop roadways and railways to connect with Brazil.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The confederations Bauxite and Manganese mining continues to develop significantly due to Brazilian immigration and Investment. The Confed in general show notable economic increases as its GDP increases by a good amount. The territory looks to have Brazilian majority in a good amount of areas now.
  • Canada: After several years of crisis and economic uncertainty, the Canadian economy actually begins to grow, funded by the wealth of the British Exodus, the scrapping of old Royal Navy ships and the Interprovincial Highway System providing links to all the major cities of Canada. New manufacturing industries are set up across the nation, many of them using names of their new British owners: Rolls Royce, Avro Aircraft, and many others. The Kingdom of Canada also stepped in and established new industries, namely in armaments: the Arsenal Act established four small industries in Halifax, Montreal, Winnipeg and Vancouver under the "Canadian Arsenals Inc.," one of the first federal Crown corporations in Canada, with the sole purpose of producing rifles, pistols, machine guns, German style "assault rifles" and other small arms. Prime Minister King determines that Canada should be self sufficient in producing its own military, though the new alliance with PATO offers a market for new, standardized weapons, and Canada was now in a great position to supply many of the world's armed forces. The first jet engines for Canada are also designed, as well as a powerful new fighter-bomber that could use this engine, and replace many of the now outclassed Marten and other fighters. Plans are made to make a powerful strategic bomber, in line with pre-World War II RAF thinking. And in what has become something of a tradition, Prime Minister King denounces the People's Union of Britain for being Communist.
    • Commonwealth announcement: Canada is invited to vote for the 1950 Commonwealth games venue.
  • USGN: Mil and eco. Support for the government in Flanders has risen over the last years. The ports of Rotterdam and Antwerpen flourish, and so does the economy. PATO membership makes for even more support. After some time of debating it, we officially recognize Canada as the successor of the United Kingdom, while we recognize the PUB as a completely different state. With the development of the Panzer V finishing this year, we begin production of those tanks. 
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 70,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer. With support from the Germans, Americans and Iranians, Saudi Arabia moves on Kuwait.
    • Kingdom of Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. Oil profits also allow for the purchase of arms from other nations. Yemen moves on Aden, hoping to reclaim the Greater Yemeni Area.
  • GEACOP: The joint GEACOP-Brazilian nuclear project continues for its fifth year. The war with the French ends, with Vietnam entering GEACOP. All members improve military and industry. Work on fighter jets in West Papua continues. Work begins on closed circuit engines for submarines, as well as submarines large enough to hold planes. The Manchurian oil wells are fully rebuilded
  • Argentina: Another two submarines are completed. Work continues on the nuclear weapons program in collaboration with Brazil and Japan, as well as work on our own program. The Army continues development of an assault rifle. Work continues on a deep water port at Port Stanley. A helicopter prototype is completed, and the first flight is successful. Another twelve jet fighters are completed for the Air Force and the Navy. The Air Force decides to retire the old light bombers. The Air Force begins to expand the exploration base in Argentinean Antarctica. Oil exploration continues. The Navy lays down three tank landing ships in the role of fleet replenisher, an oiler and a repair ship. The three armored cruisers built in 1898 are retired, and are offered for sale to Ecuador. Oil exploration continues in the north part of the nation with some promising data. The economy continues to improve with businesses springing up in Buenos Aires. Many people clamor for European goods, some small local companies start up to produce these items for the people. Due to the threat from the UK, the Army deploys 200 soldiers and 50 marines to the Falklands as well as the ARA Neuquèn and four FMA FeC.3 fighter planes. We continue to influence Paraguay. (Turn Four of Six) (Mil/Eco turn)
    • Uruguay: Two corvettes are laid down for the Uruguayan Navy. Transportation work continues with the rail lines completely linked with that of Argentina. The road lines are still being connected due to their age, they need to be modernized up to par before being linked for safety purposes. (Eco/Inf Turn)
  • The United States continues to build up its military. Proceedings of Congress are televised. Percival Prattis becomes the first African-American news correspondent allowed in the Congressional press galleries. Edwin Land demonstrates the first instant camera. The United States Army led by George S. Patton invades Mexico with the intent of occupying it and ending the war. The USS Newport News is launched in Newport News, Virginia. Jackie Robinson signs a contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers and becomes the first African-American to play Major League Baseball since the 1880s. More advanced boats and planes and whatever built.
    • In the Bahamas, there is economic buildup. There is also military buildup with American help.

  • Iran: Continue to supply Pakistan in secret against India. military supply and volunteer continue to arrive in Kuwait. We supply Iraqi Nationalist. Our infrasctructure and army continue to be modernize with American support. Car and television are more common than before.
  • France: The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves at a full 1.5 million. The AMX 13's first prototype is being built as we speak to role out the next generation of tanks. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. With the recent events in Indochina we see fit to leave as we do not have the full capabilities to hold those colonies. In secret we actively destroy any resources and or industry that could be used against us in the future before we begin leaving the Khmer to rot in Indochina. (Military/Economy turn)

  • South Africa: South Africa begins its election season, as Smuts seeks re-election and his opponent D.F. Malan attempts to become prime minister on the platform of preserving white minority rule through his apartheid scheme. The ANC continues its push to educate South Africa's black population, with the goal of educating older black Africans basic skills, while investing more time and effort into educating younger black Africans. To accomplish this, the ANC builds its own schools throughout South Africa, with the goal of educating blacks the skills needed to survive and thrive in the modern world. Courses taken from all across the globe are compiled and used by the ANC as the primary teaching courses provided to students. Major cities home to predominately black populations find themselves the target of investment by the ANC, as well as highly educated and successful black Africans living in the country, seeking to transform these cities in the black meccas of South Africa. The highway program of South Africa continues successfully, with more than 1,000 km of highway laid down throughout the country. Another 12,500 km will be built by the year of 1950, with plans to extend the network into the other union states of the country. Population growth for the year of 1947 was 4.7%, with a population increase in the other union states of about two to three percent. Increased provisions for expecting mothers, especially in black regions, has seen an increase in the survival rate of newborn infants, allowing the population to increase without the death rate found in largely underdeveloped countries. Also, the government introduces a starter kit for new parents to take care of their newborn children. Coming in the form of a box, the starter kit contains a set of diapers, clothes, sheets, food, and toys, and even includes a bed the baby can be placed on within the box as the baby's first bed. The total contain of the box is; a mattress, mattress cover, an undersheet, duvet cover, blanket, sleeping bag and quilt, as well as the box which doubles as a crib, protective clothing for the baby, several changes of clothes, a picture box and teething toy, bra pads and condoms, and hygienic supplies such as toothbrushes, towels, hairbrushes, and bath thermometers. The starter kit will be provided to all families regardless of social status and racial heritage, with the goal of reducing infant mortality rates across the nation. The military continues its training programs and combat exercises in Angola and Namibia, seeking to remain prepared for combat operations should the time come. Economists states the nation's GDP has grown by 5.6%, with leading industries such as mining and construction serving as the primary source of employment and investment. South Africa and Southern Rhodesia complete their negotiations on Southern Rhodesia joining the Union of South Africa as a member state, making it the sixth union state within the federation. Celebrations occur in light of Southern Rhodesia's membership, and Sir Godfrey Huggins addresses Parliament to express his admiration for the Union's purpose and goals. An ANC branch is opened in Ethiopia in the city of Addis Ababa, and two others in the cities of Accra and Monrovia, with the purpose of aiding in literacy programs, decreasing maternal and infant mortality, as well as promoting black African participation in the political processes of their nations, and the promotion of pan-Africanism.
    • Southern Rhodesia: The government of Southern Rhodesia wastes no time in wake of its membership in the Union of South Africa. The Southern Rhodesian Defense Forces (SRDF) are formed for their new duties, with a total of 22,146 personnel answering the call to mobilize for combat operations. A census held by the state reveals a total population of 1,890,592. The South Africans provide their Rhodesian counterparts with suggestions on lowering infant and maternal mortality rates, as well as recommending that the black population receive an education as part of the planned racial integration of the Union as a whole. While many Afrikaners seek to oppose the plan, other white Europeans agree to the idea, viewing the reasonable aspects of the suggestion. The railways of the state are expanded to connect with the wider system of rails in South Africa, and a special railway to hook up with Namibia through the latter's panhandle is under construction.
    • Namibia: Namibia continues its standard economic growth, with little in the way of expansion outside of the regular work in the mines. The SANEC continues its co-operation with the United States officials aiding them in their nuclear research, with several test completed so far with regards to the energy requirements of the nuclear facilities under construction throughout Namibia. The NDF discontinues its wargames for the rest of the year, with government officials pleased with the results of the tests.
    • Southern Angola: Construction of modern facilities throughout southern Angola continue with the oversight of ANC party members. The education of the population continues as usual, and the introduction of modern medicines in tribals areas of the state see the prolonging of life in generally hostile regions of Angola. Increased oil extraction off the coast of Namibe opens up a series of new job opportunities to the black population, with several black businessmen coming into southern Angola with the intention of getting in on the oil business, and to employ black workers on a pay level equal to that of their white counterparts. The military of Southern Angola trains for the year, setting up bases outside of Namibe in a mock siege and defense of the capital city.
    • Lesotho & Swaziland: Lesotho's capital of Maseru receives a major face-lift, with millions of dollars poured into the reconstruction of the capital, to transform it from a poor series of decrepit slums into a center of finance, industry, and learning. Elsewhere, factories are set up just outside of the capital city, to employ the tens of thousands of men and women living in the city, to give them work needed to get them into the economy as a whole. In Swaziland, the growth of the diamond mining industry continues, with thousands of men employed in the mines, which contribute to 50% of the state's GDP. Education on the subject of sexual relations to prevent the transmission of STDs becomes a major topic of the ANC's literacy program, following news of the stunning spread of venereal diseases. Combating the spread of VD in Swaziland has become a number one priority of the ANC.
    • South African Island Territories: Mauritius continues construction of the naval base located in Port Louis, which the local government hopes will provide thousands of jobs, and help attract more business to the island as sailors on shore leave look for places to spend their money. In Seychelles, little of note is done, with the exception of the opening of a refueling center for warships and airplanes of the South African Air Force. An airbase is constructed on Aldabra Atoll, allowing the South African Air Force the ability to cover East African airspace effectively. This extended reach into East Africa by the air force allows for the South African paratroopers to operate in locations such as Tanzania and Kenya without the fear of losing air support.
      • Argentinean Dip: Even though we have our share of disagreements between our governments, the threat of a Communist UK is more of a threat than our petty disagreements. We request a meeting to possibly arrange a cooling down in tensions to prevent things from spiraling our of control. We propose talks on our aircraft carrier due to the proximity to your nation. To dispel any beliefs that it may be a trap or blackmail, our Navy will deploy a screen of two destroyers, one submarine, the carrier, and a corvette. The carrier will carry 12 fighter planes, and four fighter jets for point defense. We request that your navy deploy a tank landing ship, two destroyers, two submarines, and up to three smaller ships. This is a sign of good faith.
      • South African Dip: We agree to the terms of your arrangement.
      • Spanish Diplomacy: Spain demands for South Africa to withdraw their forces from outside of Naimbe, and to recognize the Spanish hegemony to the area. Spain also offers to come to the negotiation table, as long as South Africa recognizes their claims on the rest of Angola and meets other demands that will be specified over time.
      • South African Dip: South African soldiers died to liberate that city from the harsh Portuguese colonial masters who violently oppressed the populace of Angola. While you sit idly by and watched these horrors, South Africa acted upon its ideals to alleviate the suffering of the Angolan people. We will not withdraw from the city and we will not recognize any Spanish hegemonic rule in the region. You will come to the table and present your plan, but it will not be offered on the grounds of ultimata.
  • Bulgaria: Nothing special happens, but the military will be staying at 75,000.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union celebrates the death of the Polish traitors and the armistice signed with the Germans, and now the Soviet military aims to take full advantage of the situation and gain both revenge and retribution for its sacrifices. The Soviet military, still relatively fresh from its offenses in eastern Poland, begin to take the fight to the rest of the country to ensure that the new Communist government is in as much control as possible. With Germany focusing on the parts that they withdrew to, the Soviets along with their new Polish Communist allies make moves on other cities like Warsaw, Krakow and Lublin, threatening to siege any that don't submit to the new Communist authority. In addition to that, Soviet forces occupy Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, liberating them after the successful operation that drove the Germans out of the Soviet Union. The Soviet industrial machine continues to work at a wartime pace, as the war is still not over, and rocket launchers and T-34s are continuously produced for the war effort. Planes are as well, and research into nuclear weapons and jet engines, as well as rockets, continues. The Soviet Union is considering Poland's offer, and until then proceeds with the planned invasion of Finland in an effort to bring the Soviet part of the war to an end.
    • Tuva: Tuva continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. 
    • Mongolia: Continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future. Until then, Mongolian forces continue to prepare and train in case war breaks out in the far east. 
    • East Turkestan: East Turkestani officials continue to talk with Soviet and Chinese officials in peace talks. Until the outcome of such talks, the military continues to train and prepare in case war breaks out. 
  • Republic of Colombia: The oil industry continues to boom, as production of oil is at a high. The Como Limon oil fields are now producing oil in earnest, almost matching the US-owned Rubiales oil fields. Gas drops to seven cents a gallon in Colombia. The military, particularly the navy continues to be built up.
  • Ethiopia: Seeing the collapse of the British Empire we seize British Somaliland, British Kenya, British South Sudan stating ethnic reasons. We add the province to the Somali region of Ethiopia and tell the people that you are finally free from the Europeans. We would also like to be included in the peace talks to ratify our faith. We continue to industrialize and begin demobilizing in hope France accepts our deal.
    • We do not recognize Sri Lanka or India instead support Tamil independence and we and support the republic of Dravdia with money and arms.
    • Why do you not recognize Sri Lanka?
    • Since I recognize Dravida.
    • Dravida is not fighting Sri Lanka.
    • Not without an algo - you ain't doing shit. You can invade those regions, but you can't just say you seize them.

1947.5

In India, the states declaring independence all ally with each other. In related news, Eric is removed from India.

Greek nationalists begins to seek independence in Italian and Turkish controlled Greece.

The Khmer Rouge continues to fight the French in Indochina. Calls for independent Cambodia and Laos continue.

  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 58%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern Soviet Yakovlev Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighter and the Soviet Lavochkin L-5 and Petlyavok Pe-3 bombers. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own, soon developing the Yenilmez Y-1 fighter. However, the Soviet fighters which were generally cheaper were still imported and orders for production of the Yenilmez Y-1 were not given. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. In order to further expand Turkish influence, Turkey continued funding independence groups in Iraq and influencing such groups to lead a coup d'état over the weak Monarchy [Turn Seven of Ten]. Armaments are no longer purchased from Germany and the Panzers IV are used to arm the Greek army against the Greek rebels.
    • ​Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. With the Greek rebels rising, the already existing Greek force of 50,000 and the Turkish force of 20,000 collaborated to fight against the rebels. Diplomats were also sent to co-ordinate with Italy to wipe out rebel strongholds [Algo pls Pita]
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers.
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, 6 km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Turkish - Soviet Diplomacy: Turkey expresses its desire to purchase the T-54 and T-55 Tanks from the Soviet Union.
    • Argentinean Dip: We begin arming the Greek rebels, sending them rifles and pistols for now. There is plans to send them old fighter planes as our air force expands.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • Brazil: The Nation of Brazil increases its own industrial growth in the past few months with multiple industries growing to even more competitive levels. With nearly all of South America within Brazil's ability to market and sell goods, the Brazilian nation is able to not only expand factories, but overall increase the myriad amounts of industrialization taking place with more commodities, and high tech consumer industries beginning to come in. These in general market anything from automobiles, to kitchen utensils and home Furniture. The Brazilian concept of a Suburb begins to take shape as well with the coastal cities beginning to offload excess population into communities and towns outside the city. This growth in general is propelled by the immensely cheap oil from Venezuelan and offshore investments. The Brazilian arms industry opens up an entirely new client base with more private and public interest in the arms industry developing. Various arms manufacturers are sending new opening for designs and the general populace in general begins to purchase some firearms with the Brazilian "Right to Bear Arms" propogating a positive gun culture. The Brazilian Military continues to show notable developments as it deploys its new Panther tanks fully removing the original Viper Tank from service. The Panther tanks with a heavy main weapon are the response to the issues with the two Viper models and the potential issues with the Medium tanks being unable to support effectively. The Army also makes inroads into development of its new rifles with promising designs coming around. The Air force also continues to make developsment with the latest models of its heavy bombers outpacing the older models relatively easily. The Brazilian fighter corps still maintains much the same compliment with a greater focus on the speedy air superiority provided by the F-270's followed by the absolute hold over dominance by the Super Blackhawks. The Brazilian navy continues work on their next two light carriers with their expected completion in 1948. A Nuclear breakthrough is made by the combined efforts of Brazil, Germany, and Japan and in some ways Argentina, but in general leads to the possibility of bomb construction with multiple bombs being ready to test in early 1948. The Brazilian leadership is happy with these developments and schedules to observe them. The Brazilian navy also expands its patrol and defence umbrella into the South Atlantic islands keeping a large patrol presence in that direction. Research in more modern ships begins with improvement to be made and the replacement of aging or obsolete ships and possible conversion of many into the new models of ships. Brazil avoid the issues between Spain and South Africa for now, but more or less remains resolute in keeping its bases in Angola and Mozambique. The Brazilian Marines in Angola undergo training exercises.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to develop its oil and refining industries with its moderate commodities industry beginning to gain traction as the nation's unemployment reaches new lows. The Venezuelan government continues to show support for Brazil and in many cases has opted to help create and facilitate the creation of a Unified South American economic bloc with Brazil. The Venezuelan people when asked on the this topic seem rather positive with the influence of both the US and Brazil being rather positive for the development of the nation as a whole. The Venezuelans throw in their development with Brazil.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Confederation continues to show some moderate population growth through immigration. The Brazilian migration there has only increased as the industrial Bauxite and Manganese have made heavy movement towards improving nearly every aspect of the Guyanas. A potential Vote to Join Brazil in the future is to take place due to the major migration of Brazilians and the rather surprising assimilation of those previously living there. The Nation deepens its ties with Brazil. 
  • USGN: Mil and eco. Support for the government in Flanders has risen over the last years. The ports of Rotterdam and Antwerpen flourish, and so does the economy. PATO membership makes for even more support. After some time of debating it, we officially recognize Canada as the successor of the United Kingdom, while we recognize the PUB as a completely different state. Production of the Panzer V continues, and in one year they will be the primary tank of the Dutch Army. 
  • Federation of New Zealand: Independence is going good without the UK, and we seek to unite with Australia for safety.
    • New Zealand is invited to join the Commonwealth of Nations.
  • Belgium: With Belgium joining PATO as a member. We gain more respective troops to train. But the Spaak Minister warns troops to not engage Netherlands, otherwise they'll close out in Wallonia. Economy and military expands.
  • Argentina: We finish the destroyers for our Navy and launch them. Another 12 fighter jets for the Air Force are completed, and 12 for the Navy. Eight jet trainers are built as well. After negotiations with South Africa, we lift the sanctions on the nation and agree to some minor military and political collaboration to prevent future misunderstandings. We begin constructing an airbase on the Falklands and the miscellaneous Atlantic Islands. The Navy continues construction of a deepwater port and refueling station in the Falklands. Work on the domestic assault rifle continues with major leaps made after receiving aid from the German military. Business is booming for westernized products and automobile manufacturing begins in Buenos Aires. The first line produces ten cars in a month, a tremendous feat considering the short time between planning and execution. We continue to influence Paraguay. (Turn Five of Six) (Mil/Eco Turn)
    • Uruguay: The government receives the new ships for the Navy and finishes modernizing the armed forces for the moment. Work continues connecting the domestic infrastructure including rebuilding roadways to link with that of Argentina. Some in the government still urge unification with Argentina and becoming a province in the nation. Others want to keep the status quo as we retain some political freedoms, while gaining increased access to capital and speedy recovery from the depression. (Mil/Infa Turn)
  • German Reich: A year after the war ended Germany continues to rebuild a devastated Rhineland using the large amounts of supplies and raw materials granted by the U.S.A. and Brazil. Life in western Germany is slowly starting to return to normal as the volunteer and drafted workers help rebuild large areas damaged or exploited by the French. Rationing is slowly easing up as resources are becoming more available to the general population, many in the army are getting released and returning to their families, lots of these decide to volunteer as well to help rebuild their nation. Major corporations move back into the Rhine particularly Krupp, which put the steel factories back to work in the Ruhr Valley. Industrialization in Silesia, Austria, and throughout the Rhineland continues. In an attempt to increase productivity Berlin in co-ordination with major corporations and Industrialists begins rebuilding the extensive Rhineland railway system and improving the system in the rest of the country. Exporting of steel, weapons, consumer goods, and other products begins again mainly to the U.S.A, Brazil, Canada, Turkey, China, and Germany's allies in Europe. The first national elections in over a decade are held in Germany with the Centre Party, and Conservative Party pulling a surprising victory over the Social democrats. The Centre Party seeing that they were behind in the votes formed a common front with the Conservative party to form a coalition government in the final months of polling. Despite this the Social Democrats form an overwhelming 45% of the Reichstag giving the opposition a very strong voice in the government. Berlin, and Vienna quickly regain their status as the political hubs of the Reich. The intelectual circles of Vienna remain largely left wing, while Berlin remains a melting pot for political and social philosophies. The cultural explosion continues without an end in sight with thousands of new artists, dancers, and musicians popping up across the country. Jazz continues to pick up in popularity. large scale scientific research continues with the greatest minds in the Reich working on a variety of projects. German rocket development continues, and the German scientific community starts to discuss the possibilities of a space program (purely in theory at this point, and don't forget at this point OTL the Soviets and Americans were also considering). Development of a large data processor begins as the German high command sees a need for faster devices (in effect I'm looking to make the first "computer." The actual first one was made during World War Two, so this is a bit late.). Rocket engineering and engineering development continues. The G 06 has its final kinks worked out and mass production of the rifle begins, with it slowly replacing the more outdated weapons of the armed forces. development of more modern SMGs and machine guns begin as well. Mauser and the Austrian based Steyr Mannlicher agree to a merger of the two companies creating a massive new entity known as Mauser-Steyr, many unsatisfied with the new company, and its supposed policies move onto Hamburg founding Hekler & Koch, a smaller arms firm. Both firms are contracted by the German government to develop future assault rifles based on the G 06 model. Development of new fighters based on the old Me 262 known as the Me NT 20. The Panzer V begins mass production replace the old panzer IV. The Horten Ho 229 enters small scale production to be serve as a special part of the air force, while tweaking of its system continues to work out the kinks. The government decides to set up a military government in the recently re-annexed provinces of what used to be Poland, establishing the Posen-Prussia District. Berlin and offers Czechoslovakia them a free trade agreement (Mod Response, please.) Germany continues to expand its trade with Turkey, and Saudi Arabia. In secret Germany offers the Saudis and Turks the StG 44 to help them improve their military strength as well as older tanks and jets which are still years ahead of anything the other Middle Eastern countries may have. Some 2000 German volunteers also offer their services as advisors in exchange for boarding and German standard military salaries with benefits. In secret the first German nuclear device is developed and plans to test it in the future are made. (Scraw gave me the go ahead on making my first bomb this turn so.) Not a word about the bomb is said as the high command wishes to keep the weapon a secret for as long as possible. via diplomatic channels Germany requests that it be allowed to test the device off the Brazilian coast where it'll be kept out of sight and mind from Germany's European rivals. 
    • Posen-Prussia District: With Berlin granted total authority to the occupying forces a new administration is set up. All Germans living within the area are granted German citizenship at once while Poles are issued resident cards, stripping them of their nationality. However, it is decided that those who can prove their will to learn German and live within a German state will be granted German citizenship. Those deemed docile are permitted to remain within the Reich. However, those who are considered restive are slowly collected to be expelled across the border into the Soviet Union. German families who had lands taken from them after World War One are granted half of their original lands, while the rest is set aside for settlement by Germans coming from the East. With the trickle of Germans slowly increasing many are settled in the districts, and provided with supplies and government benefits until an active economy can be restored to the region. Military checkpoints are set up to keep the conquered Poles under control and to protect the German civilians moving into the area.
    • Brazil Dip: Agreed.
  • Australia: Infrastructure is improved. The project of a railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built.
    • Papua: Infrastructure is improved, as new buildings and a church are constructed.
    • Indonesia: New farms are built and a new factory is planned in Surabaya.
  • Switzerland: continues development of the N-20 fighter-bomber with Germany and with some help from Romania following largely successful tests. The first planes could be commissioned some time in 1948 or 1949. The government begins modernizing the road infrastructure and could include building tunnels. Swiss influence continues in Liechtenstein [Turn Two of Six].
  • South Africa: Prime Minister Jan Smuts continues his push for racial integration, presenting the plan to the white population as the only sensible thing to do. Given the overwhelming population of blacks in the country, and the growing influence of the ANC and its core of wealthy black members, it will only be a matter of years until blacks are governing the country. D.F. Malan attempts to play on the fears of the white population, especially the Afrikaners, stating that black rule will end in white genocide. While some believe Malan's fear-mongering, others think of it as silly and unrealistic, only pushing them into Smuts' political camp. Elsewhere, the growth of the literate black population continues under the watch of the ANC. Numerous schools and universities built for the purpose of educating black Africans inspires many to take advantage of the growing resources flowing into their communities, and hundreds of thousands of parents enroll their children into the schools with the aims of giving them a future they can fulling take hold of. With a highly motivated population seeking to educate their young, further fueled by the possibility of black-led government in the future, many see it as their obligation to be prepared for that future, and to prove themselves every bit the equal of a white man in the field of education. Nuclear research continues as usual, with the another ton of U-352 produced by the South African nuclear scientists, and sent up to Namibia for storage. It is hoped that there will be more than enough fissile material needed for several tests in the future by the SANEC in hand with their American counterparts. Several South African scientists begin work on expanding their nation's understanding of computer technology and engineering. Construction of a large electronic calculator begins in Nelspruit, where several technology firms based out of Cape Town have invested in the project. One of the black African graduates sponsored by the South African government to attend the University of Pretoria, has established the automotive company, Inqola, to serve as the nation's first indigenous car making company. Seeking to open employment security to his fellow Zulu people, the Inqola company opens its first car factory in Pietermaritzburg, with the aim of turning it into South Africa's version of Detroit, Michigan. Some 6500 people are to be employed at the factory, producing the company's first car design, the Inqola Pongola, named after the Pongola River which flows through KwaZulu. SADF troops are sent to protect the city of Namibe from Spanish forces, and prevent any attempt to cease the city from the sea. Smuts addresses the issue by stating South Africa will do its part to adhere to its commitments within the Union to defend fellow union state members. A series of new tank and aircraft designs are presented to the military for production. The government states that it will greenlight the designs for general production in 1948, along with plans for a series of new warships to replace the older versions as well as expand the navy in general.
    • ​Southern Rhodesia: Work to fulfill Southern Rhodesia's social and defense commitments begins, with education of the black population taking priority as the need to fill skilled jobs presents itself to politicians and businessmen. Military training outside of the city of Salisbury begins, with combined arms tactics taking the lead. Several airbases are constructed in the state to assist Union Defense Force personnel in expanding aerial defense in the region. Expansion of the state's railway system continues under the supervision of government officials, and construction of the highway network as an extension of that in South Africa begins.
    • Namibia: Namibia continues its typical expansion of the national infrastructure and military defense complexes. Economic growth begins to see expansion as movement by South African troops through the state picks up in light of the Spanish forces moving toward southern Angola. The SANEC continues its work to development a nuclear breakthrough by 1950-52, and constructs a new heavy water plant in the southwestern part of the country.
    • Southern Angola: The Southern Angolan Defense Forces take up fortified positions throughout the state, mobilizing reserves and moving heavy armor and artillery into combat positions. However, none of this distracts from the state's main goals of expanding industry and education in the union state, with priority given to the reconstruction of towns and villages in need of public facilities such as hospitals, schools, and civic centers which promote growth, stability, and education.
    • Lesotho & Swaziland: Lesotho continues to rebuild its capital city, building apartment buildings and schools in accordance to international standards, as well as developing a road network capable of supporting a population of well over a million people. Factories continues to sprawl outside of the city, as many outside of the state move to Lesotho in search of employment. In Swaziland, the sex education programs see much success, with the King of Swaziland agreeing to promote safe sexual practices in the population on behalf of South Africa. With such preventative measures taken by the government, VD cases have dramatically decreased over the course of six months, aiding in prolonging the life expectancies of the population. Elsewhere, the diamond mining towns attract businesses geared to providing recreational activities for the miners and their families, providing a boom to the local economy and industries. Several military personnel from both states are transferred to the Angolan front to assist in building fortifications and aiding in patrols. It is believed that some 2500 soldiers have been reassigned for this role.
    • South African Island Territories: The construction of the Port Louis Naval Base is completed in Mauritius, allowing the South African Navy the ability to reach locations as far north as the Horn of Africa and Yemen. With the refueling base in Seychelles, prolonged naval missions in the Indian Ocean become a viable option for the military. The aircraft carrier SAS Rhodes is assigned to the port. With the civil war raging in the Indian subcontinent, the South African officials in Pretoria capitalize on the naval base's completion, and orders the South African Marines to seize the British Indian Ocean Territories from the Indians. With little resistance to their landing, the tiny islands are occupied by 150 South African marines and incorporated into the SAIT. Plans to move on into the Maldives are drawn up by military officials to build a lasting presence in the region, but the Smuts government insists that the navy wait until after the 1948 elections to occupy the Maldives. Smuts states that he cannot risk giving Malan an opprotunity to criticize his foreign policies during the election and potentially give him the edge in 1948.
    • Jordanian Dip: We request the purchase of three Atlas Arends.

  • In the United States, there is economic growth. More people have jobs and the standard of living generally increases. It is a good time to be an American and nationalist sentiment is at an all time high. However, people begin to disapprove of the aggressive tendencies of the Wallace administration, especially the occupation of Haiti and now the occupation of Mexico. Many begin to refer to this new tendency as Wallace's addition to the Monroe Doctrine. Meanwhile, General Patton continue the invasion of Mexico, sweeping south from the border into the northern Mexican provinces and seizing major cities such as Tijuana and Monterrey. The government decides to begin secretely funding, aiding, and supplying Greek rebels. The Navy also launches an attack on Veracruz and other locations along the Gulf of Mexico. Also, new ships, carriers, and destroyers are built and research continues on the H-bomb, as well as advances in submarines. America continues to make progress against the conspirators as many loyalist forces join the US forces as they continue to push towards Mexico City. Meanwhile, there is military buildup and lots of new weaponry and vehicles see action in Mexico, especially heavy tanks, jet fighters, and other powerful planes. Meanwhile, at home, people predict that the Republicans will have control of both houses of Congress and the White House in the next elections. Meet the Press debuts on TV. The US Marine Corps commissions its first helicopter squadron.
    • In the Bahamas, there is economic growth that coincides with the growth of the American economy. Also, new infrastructure is built and old stuff is maintained, repaired, or replaced. The United States also moves more troops, ships, and planes into the region.
    • The Republic of Haiti continues to make diplomatic overtures toward the Dominican Republic. Thanks to American funding, Haiti begins to experience economic prosperity. General Eisenhower continues the experimental infrastructure programs. The US military begins to depart from Haiti.

  • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostiliates with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the re-introduction of Chinese land back into the Republic.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 70,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer. With support from the Germans, Americans and Iranians, Saudi Arabia moves on Kuwait.
    • Kingdom of Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. Oil profits also allow for the purchase of arms from other nations. Yemen moves on Aden, hoping to reclaim the Greater Yemeni Area.
  • '​'France: The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves at a full 1.5 million. The AMX 13's first prototype is being built as we speak to role out the next generation of tanks. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. With the recent events in Indochina we see fit to leave as we do not have the full capabilities to hold those colonies. In secret we actively destroy any resources and or industry that could be used against us in the future before we begin leaving the Khmer to rot in Indochina. (Military/Economy turn)
    • ​Jordanian Dip: We would like to purchase French Lebanon for £1.5 Million.
  • Ecuador: We begin by asking to have an exchange of embassies in the new countries formed by the former British Empire. We would like an embassy in Sydney, Australia; Wellington, New Zealand; Johannesburg, South Africa; Jerusalem, Jordania; and Ottawa, Canada, all in exchange for an embassy in Quito. We decide to stay out of the war in India. In internal affairs, we continue our various explorations of the Oriente, searching for Gold, Silver, diamonds, and oil. We improve our infrastructure, especially between Guayaquil and Quito. We also improve our economy, continuing our goal of industrializing. We ask for an alliance with GEACOPS, at least informally.
  • Jordania: Large immigration of European Jews to the Holy Land continues (most notably British Jews, numbering 50,000, who are escaping the Communist takeover). The government concentates its efforts to deal with the flood of Jewish immigrants fleeing the European conflict with the nation's economy being improved. The trans-highway network is completed. Efforts are also made to reduce tensions between the different ethnic groups after the Arab revolt. Our military stands at 65,000. More PAI Hoopoe are produced and used to enlarge our air force. With Turkish support the nation's military is modernised with new weapons and equipment, as well as Turkish military staff training our military in modern tactics. Trade is expanded with Germany and Turkey.(Military/Economic) . (Edit: why was my stuff striked out?)
  • Ammon: Infrastructure is improved. Archaeological expeditions are given the Emir's blessing allowing for many expeditions to take place in the region. In light of recent laws and efforts in Palestine, Transjordan also puts in place a series of laws to reduce tensions between Muslims and Christians. The Emir increases the size of the Transjordanian army to 25,000. (Military/Economic)
    • You are blocked; you are no longer allowed to play.
    • Why?
    • Did you not get the notice? You kept duplicating offenses. Frankly, I think one month is a tad long but rules are rules.
    • So if when the month is up I can rejoin the game?
    • Yeah.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania.

  • Republic of Colombia: Mandatory participation in the military begins, and all males are required to join one branch of the military for 30 months when they turn 19. Communism continues to be brutally suppressed, with many party leaders arrested and jailed. The military works on modernizing its tank force and air force.
  • Soviet military aims to take full advantage of the situation and gain both revenge and retribution for its sacrifices. The Soviet military, still relatively fresh from its offenses in eastern Poland, begin to take the fight to the rest of the country to ensure that the new Communist government is in as much control as possible. With Germany focusing on the parts that they withdrew to, the Soviets along with their new Polish Communist allies make moves on other cities like Warsaw, Krakow, and Lublin, threatening to siege any that don't submit to the new Communist authority. In addition to that, Soviet forces occupy Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, liberating them after the successful operation that drove the Germans out of the Soviet Union. The Soviet industrial machine continues to work at a wartime pace, as the war is still not over, and rocket launchers and T-34s are continuously produced for the war effort. Planes are as well, and research into nuclear weapons and jet engines, as well as rockets, continues. The Soviet Union is considering Poland's offer, and until then proceeds with the planned invasion of Finland in an effort to bring the Soviet part of the war to an end.
    • Tuva: Tuva continues to support the Soviets in their actions. There is some talk of possibly joining the Soviet Union at some point in the near future.

In New Delhi, a radical extremist Hindu movement begins headed by a man named Zavian Baladeva Maharaj. The movement, dubbed the "White Roses" by the Western Media for their tendancy to carry white roses into demonstrations becomes extremely popular, expanding from 300 to 500,000 members by June of 1948.

  • The United States of America officially declares war on Canada, Newfoundland, Guatemala (and co), Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, Siam, the Republic of China, Japan (+ GEACOP), the Soviet Union, Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, India, Pakistan, Bengal, Assam, Burma, Hyderabad, Dravida, the Maldives, Sri Lanka, Iran, Turkey, Jordania, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Ethiopia, South Africa, Portugal, Spain, France, Andorra, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Italy, San Marino, the Vatican, Yugoslavia, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Britain, Ireland, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Iceland, Liberia, and the United Federation of Antarctica because we are stronger than all of them. Also, nuclear weapons are dropped on the capital cities of all of this nation. Henry A. Wallace is declared Supreme Emperor of the United Emperor of Earth after executing Order 66. George S. Patton, Dwight D. Eisenhowever, and Douglas MacArthur are purged by order of Joe and Vice President Louis A. Johnson assumes the position of Darth Vader. Construction of the Death Star begins in the orbit of the moon. The remainder of the galaxy is annexed by the Declaration of American Universal Domain of 1948. Scraw is named supreme leader of the entire universe by Imperial Ordinance #1 and installed on the Iron Throne. All former earthly peasant nations are invited to sign their surrenders below:
  • Ethiopian Dip: Where are the moderators.
    • "Construction of the death star begins in the orbit of the moon". Mods, can this madness end?
    • Ecuador Dip: We declare war on San Marino. They look suspicious.
    • Mod Dip: Scraw, that's enough. It was a funny joke, but it's causing everyone else to go insane over it.
    • Argentinean Dip: Our entire nation as well as our vassals blast off from earth and heads back to our home planet in the Andromeda Galaxy, to return in ten years to conquer the earth, a plan 100,000 years in the making. We will conquer puny earth and the minute humans.
  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern Soviet Yakovlev Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighter and the Soviet Lavochkin L-5 and Petlyavok Pe-3 bombers. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own, soon developing the Yenilmez Y-1 fighter. However, the Soviet fighters which were generally cheaper were still imported and orders for production of the Yenilmez Y-1 were not given. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. In order to further expand Turkish influence, Turkey continued funding independence groups in Iraq and influencing such groups to lead a coup d'état over the weak Monarchy [Turn Eight of Ten]. Armaments are no longer purchased from Germany and the Panzers IV are used to arm the Greek army against the Greek rebels.
    • Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. With the Greek rebels rising, the already existing Greek force of 50,000 and the Turkish force of 20,000 collaborated to fight against the rebels. Diplomats were also sent to co-ordinate with Italy to wipe out rebel strongholds. Moreover, with news arriving of foreign support to Greece, the navy initiates massive patrols around Greek coasts. It is declared that everyone would have to use the Port of Athens or Thessaloniki. Ships seen elsewhere would be immediately destroyed and ships arriving at coastlines where rebel strongholds are present, are ordered to be attacked unless it is noticed that they belong to the Turkish navy. Along the same time, air strikes are launched by the Turkish air force upon Greek Hellenic strongholds and state propaganda makes sure to tell the people that the rebels have full plans on burning Athens and other Greek cities to the ground. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers.
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, 6 km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
  • Soviet Union: Finally back in action here. The Soviet Union rejoices in peace following the war in Europe, and even with the war over the Soviet Union does not relax its grip on the population or its determination to expand its influence and power. Soviet military strength recovers from the war, and the military along with the civilian government agrees to fund new technologies for the military. New technologies like radar, better tanks, rocketry, jet aircraft, chemical weapons like sarin, and nuclear weaponry are all given priority in terms of military development funding, in order to make sure the Soviet military maintains relative equality with other great powers. In the domestic front, tanks like the T-34 are still being mass produced, and the military continues to produce weapons to help maintain parity. Soviet weaponsmiths begin designing an assault rifle based on the German StG44, and it is expected to be produced next year. The Soviet Navy also beings to modernize and grow, with the need for destroyers, cruisers, battleships, and aircraft carriers becoming obvious and desired. Intelligence services like the NKVD and KGB continue to gather intelligence in other countries that the government could utilize. The Soviet Union also begins work at consolidating its foothold in areas in the world, and efforts to expand or maintain foothold are desired and sought after. The situation in India is highly appealing to the Soviet government, and the Soviet government sends KGB agents into the subcontinent to explore the situation in more depth.
    • Tuva: Tuva is annexed into the Soviet Union this year after near unanimous agreement by both governments. 
    • Mongolia: The Soviets keep trying to bring in some aspects of industry into Mongolia, although most of the country remains pastorial. The military gains a bit of surplus from the Soviets to help modernize their military. 
    • East Turkestan: Following talks with Chinese officials, East Turkestan is divided in order to prevent the outbreak of new war. The northern part is annexed into the Soviet Union, with part of it being added to the Kazahk SSR and the rest being admitted as the Uighur SSR. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The three countries of the Baltic are roled into one state under Soviet influence and direction in order to better manage and direct their affairs and eventuall ascension. The military is prepped with Soviet surplus in an effort to modernize them. 
    • Finland: A new government is established now that the Soviets are victorious and the war has ended. National efforts are underway to rebuild the country. The military is prepped with Soviet surplus in an effort to modernize them. 
    • Turkish Diplomacy: We request the Soviet Union to sell T-54 and T-55 tanks to Turkey. 
    • The United States of Everywhere demands an immediate surrender from the former USSR which no longer exists. We are stronger than you, which is why we have invaded you. Since we are stronger than you, you must clearly become a part of our nation. 129 states will be created from the former USSR.
  • Ethiopia: We would also like to be included in the peace talks to ratify our faith. We invade British Kenya, Somaliland and Southern Sudan. We also build up our navy. We continue to industrialize and begin demobilizing in hope France accepts our deal.
  • Argentina: Another 12 fighter jets for the Air Force are completed, and 12 for the Navy. Eight jet trainers are built as well. We continue constructing an airbase on the Falklands and the miscellaneous Atlantic Islands. The Navy continues construction of a deepwater port and refueling station in the Falklands. Work on the domestic assault rifle continues with major leaps made after receiving aid from the German military. Using plans from Brazil we begin to construct the remaining 10% of equipment we need for our nuclear weapons program. Business is booming for westernized products and automobile manufacturing continues in Buenos Aires. They manufacture 500 cars per month. We vassalize Paraguay. (Turn Six of Six) (Mil/Eco Turn)
    • Uruguay: Work continues connecting the domestic infrastructure including rebuilding roadways to link with that of Argentina. Some in the government still urge unification with Argentina and becoming a province in the nation. Others want to keep the status quo as we retain some political freedoms, while gaining increased access to capital and speedy recovery from the depression. (Eco/Infa Turn)
    • Paraguay: After being vassalized by Argentina the economy begins to improve due to increased capital available in the nation. Infrastructure development is begun and put under construction to connect it with that of Argentina. (Infra/Eco Turn)
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built. Thailand also begins to deploy some military to the border to deal with the attacking Khmers.
  • The Khmer Rouge is attacking you. Do something.
  • Canada: The Kingdom of Canada does Kingdom of Canada things. The Grand Fleet is prepared and sent on a world wide tour to visit our allies and show that Canada can, and will, take the place of the former United Kingdom on the world stage. The economy booms with investment of the British Exodus and new industries, and our trade agreements with Germany, the US and the Commonwealth further boost the economy. Oil is found in Alberta, giving another huge economic boon to Canada. Canada asks Germany if we can buy SAG 44's and Panzer IVs to reverse engineer for Canadian purposes. In return, we can sell old Royal Navy ships and natural resources. Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King once again denounces the People's Union of Britain for being Communists.
  • Romania: Mihai I is the King and Petru Groza is the Prime Minister. Romania has 250.000 soldiers. Romania is happy that because of co-operation to make a plain with Switzerland. Since it did a test that was successful, Romania wants to buy ten.
  • Bulgaria: The Bulgarian (Insert Government here) starts to modernize to keep up with the superpowers, but they fail as they don't go beyond OTL 1936 techs. Attempts to Increase industry and boost population occur.
  • Iran: Effort to modernize our army and infractructure show great progress and the new new generation who grow in under the progressist government become pro Western. Continue to supply Pakistan and Arab nationalists with weapons and supplies. The fortification on the Soviet border is finally over and kept up to date. We propose the creation of the Muslim League between Saudi Arabia and us to promote unity in the Muslim world and as an economic organization.
  • But you're Shia ... and they're not ...
  • My head of State is secular and the clergy is under government rule, but still, can I propose the creation of a Middle East based organization to counter Communism.
  • It doesn't make much sense for you to say that you're secular but want a Muslim League at the same time.
  • Yeah. No, this ain't happening.
  • Of course, in this case it would not be the Muslim League but something like the Middle East Co-operation Organization.
  • France: The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves at a full 1.5 million. The AMX 13's first prototype is being built as we speak to role out the next generation of tanks. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. With the recent events in Indochina we see fit to leave as we do not have the full capabilities to hold those colonies. In secret we actively destroy any resources and or industry that could be used against us in the future before we begin leaving the Khmer to rot in Indochina. (Military/Economy turn)
    • Ecuador: We ask to purchase two bombers and five tanks.
  • USGN: Mil and eco. Support for the government in Flanders has risen over the last years. The ports of Rotterdam and Antwerpen flourish, and so does the economy. PATO membership makes for even more support. After some time of debating it, we officially recognize Canada as the successor of the United Kingdom, while we recognize the PUB as a completely different state. Production of the Panzer V continues, and in 0.5 year they will be the primary tank of the Dutch Army.
    • Batavia: Mil and eco.
  • Belgium: The oil industry is good in exchange. Minister of Belgium thinks more power accurancy will need for Belgium, which is probably need and Wallonia to help. Meanwhile, the troops completely in training, but the army is small and will need more structures to build and upgrade bigger.
  • Switzerland: begins serial production of the Arbalète N-20 (Axis vs Allies Resurrection Map Game) Arbalète N-20 fighter-bomber, though production will be slow for some time. Swiss influence over Liechtenstein continues [Turn Three of Six] and troop presence there is reduced to two. Switzerland continues its good relations with its neighbors.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins.

    • Indonesia: New farms are built and a new factory is planned in Surabaya.
  • Nepal: After the turmoil caused by the Rana dynasty's internal issues and the lack of British aid following the Communist revolution, the position of the Prime Minister becomes elective once more. The government urges to repair and develop the economy and discussions are made whether to intervene into the Indian affairs or not.
  • Brazil: The Nation of Brazil continues to develop its industry in good stride with good production of goods for the rest of the continent as well as some major export operations now as well. The Brazilian government develops the South Atlantic bases from Argentina into fully fledged Air Force bases and the Naval base developing on Ascension Island. The Brazilian in a lot of cases develops the ability for long range bombers to reach Africa through their efforts. The Brazilian arms industry continues to expand as well with more arms development for civilians occuring. Along with this the Brazilian efforts for another kind of Main assault rifle to develop from the StG 44. The Brazilian navy continues to develop as well with looks into new variants of Fleet Carriers, and other ships as well with the obselecense of the Battleships becoming readily apparent. The Brazilian navy also further develops its Angolan and Mozambique bases particularly to house Naval aviation bases. The Navy also begins development of its first jet powered Naval aircraft looking at the many issues of operating a jet based carrier aircraft. The Brazilian Nuclear program culminates in the detonation of its first nuclear weapon at an undisclosed location in the Amazons. The Test is successful and with the first round and investment from four nations three of them great powers, the Brazilian have managed about three more bombs. However, one bomb is shipped to Japan and two are kept in Brazil with the ability to copy the manufacturing schematics being allowed by all participating nations. The Remaining two Brazilian nukes are able for delivery through specially modified Brazilian Cargo Aircraft with a specified Bomber to be built in the next few years. The Brazilian nation Sanctions South Africa, as it seems to be attempting to upset the self determination and independence of many independent peoples in South Africa. The Brazilian Army continues development of its new IFV with a 20 mm autocannon as one of its main armaments. The Brazilian government under Nereu Ramos also warns of grave consequences to South Afica if it should continue any current nuclear research and warns that if they should continue it will result in a forced removal of this sort of weapon from a power not seen stable enough to maintain the responsibility.
    • Venezuela: The Venezuelan nation continues to develop industrially with its Oil and moderate commodities industries picking up significantly for a nation of only four million people. The Military itself develops modestly as well with the fleet looking to gain a potential cruiser from the Brazilians if the economy permits. The Venezuelan military remains at about 120,000 with a small reserve, and seeks no expansion in the recent years only to keep a potent modern military force. The rubber production of Venezuela picks up.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Confederation continues to develop through its manganese and Bauxite mining. Further migrations of Brazilians to Guyana continue to make it a more and more Brazilian country than not. The native and various Europeans here integrate rather well in this system and it begins to show that Brazil can be treated as a top tier immigration opportunity for Europeans.
    • Argentinean Dip: We request to purchase 24 intro trainer planes, 20 Viper I tanks, and 50 Viper II tanks.
  • In the United States, Warner Brothers shows the first color newsreel. The Wallace administration puts forth a plan for a free trade zone between the United States and its associated nations. General Patton continues the military occupation of Mexico. With the official surrender being received, the US Army enters Mexico City fairly easily. Meanwhile, the Navy defeats the loyalists along the coast. Also, the air force sees great action in Mexico, with the new bombers and jet fighters being used on the attacks on rebel bases. The Air Force now has approximately 50,000 planes in service and 360,000 personnel. Mexico is divided into three military occupation zones, North Mexico, Central Mexico, and South Mexico, each governed by a different military governor. The B-29 Superfortresses undergo aerial refueling tests, proving that this is a viable technique for the extension of the range of bombers. Also, it is decided that the U.S. must being stockpiling nuclear weapons if it hopes to maintain its position as a dominant military force. The U.S. Navy launches two P2V-3C Neptune aircraft, which are configured to carry nuclear weapons. Also, a YP-86 flown by George Welch is the first American fighter aircraft to exceed Mach 1. Back at home, the Supreme Court rules that religious instruction in public schools violates the Constitution in McCollum v. Board of Education. The United States sanctions South Africa. The Republican Party nominates Thomas E. Dewey for the Presidency. In the Democratic Party, the frontrunners are Claude Pepper, Vice President Johnson, and General Eisenhower. In June, President Wallace declares his support for Louis Johnson, ensuring his nomination. There is also economic growth and a growth in employment.
    • In the Bahamas, there is economic growth and military is built up. The Bahamas officially becomes the Republic of the Bahamas. The Bahamian government is also in accordance with the American plan to create a free trade area.
    • In Haiti, the military occupation is ended as the American forces return to their nation. However, Haiti remains an American protectorate. Thanks to American funding, Haiti experiences economic growth. Haiti begins to acquire older American ships and weaponry.
    • The Philippines remain an American Commonwealth, although many continue to seek independence. The Philippine military is strengthened and new infrastructure is built, while older infrastructure is destroyed or repaired.
  • South Africa: Jan Smuts wins in a close election, beating D.F. Malan's National Party by 14 seats in the parliament. Tens of thousands of white South Africans voted to keep the moderate United Party in power, seeking to ease black rule into the country with the understanding of the greater power blacks have since been wielding. Failing to scare whites into voting for his party, Malan retires from politics in the wake of the National Party overwhelming defeat in the election polls. With Malan's retirement, the legalization of apartheid in South Africa has effectively been killed as a political idea, and the move to integrate black Africans in the political structure of South Africa begins under Smuts' watch. While Smuts had originally intended to prolong white-minority rule for as long as feasibly possible, the growing political influence of the ANC has forced Smuts to agree to a time-table in which black majority rule will take place. The year of 1958 is selected by members of the South African government as the most viable time in which to hand over political power to the ANC, and end white minority rule in South Africa. South Africa responds to the Brazilian threat stating that it will not be cowed by foreign powers, especially powers that cannot not harm them from their Amazonian "slums". The Brazilian statement is rebuked by South Africa, and work on its nuclear program continues as usual. South Africa enters into negotiations with Bechuanaland on the subject of it joining the union of southern African nations (Turn One of Five of vassalization). Population of South Africa increases by 4.5% as regularly, and 3-5% in the other states, with sex education to prevent sexually-transmitted diseases playing a big part in the survival rate of mothers and infants. Economic growth is shown to be more than 7.8%, the giant increase in the economy coming in light of the election results. With blacks soon to have the total freedom to take part in the economy by 1950 according to the Smuts government, investors flock to South Africa in preparation for the predicted economic boom that is to take place two years from now. The highway system in South Africa continues to grow, and tens of thousands of South Africans take to the road in their new Inqola Pongolas, seeking to show their support by buying the vehicles. With so many purchases, Inqola increases its production quotas to meet demand, and begins drawing up plans for exporting regionally. The military introduces the new tank design known as the Verwoester Md.III, which will begin replacing the older Verwoester Md.I's and Md.II's. 350 Verwoester Md.III's have been ordered by the army. In addition to this, the air force of South Africa has placed an order for 50 additional Atlas Arends, seeking to replace the fleet of piston engine aircraft with new jet engine aircraft. Finally, the navy places an order for a third aircraft carrier to increase its presence in the Atlantic Ocean. Construction on the SAS Paul Kruger begins in Cape Town, along with the construction of three new destroyers and five extra landing ships for the South African Marines. The number of marines in the military are to be expanded from a force of 3,400 to more than 9000 personnel, with plans to establish a series of military bases for the navy in Seychelles for Indian Ocean power projection. In light of the acquisition of the British Indian Ocean Territory, the marines are in need of extra personnel, leading to the expansion of the force. The SAS Rhodes begins combat trials in the Indian Ocean, along with two cruisers, nine destroyers, seven frigates, and four submarines, which form the South African Eastern Fleet. Industrial expansion continues in South Africa, with construction of several new steel factories in Johannesburg and Pretoria, as canned food factory in Kimberly, and a textile plant in Polokwane. Another textile planet is under construction in the city of Ulundi, where it will employ several hundreds of people as part of the government's economic empowerment program for the black Africans in the region. The literacy rate among black Africans continues to grow, with more than 35% of the black population capable of reading and writing. 2,600 black Africans are admitted in the University of Pretoria and the University of Cape Town, financed by the African National Congress. As for the ANC, it continues to open offices in the major cities of Africa, with the latest one opened in Lagos, where it seeks to expand its literacy programs and promote pan-African unity in the regions it operates in. The organization expands its members across the continent, as it promotes its "peace through strength" campaign, getting Africans to join the organization to help in the education and enrichment of African communities across Africa. The construction of the Nelspruit Selective Sequence Electronic Calculator (NSSEC) is completed. The NSSEC has a speed of 50 multiplications per second, and consists of 20,000 relays and 12,500 vacuum tubes spread across a room 25 feet by 40 feet in size. The comupter will be used to calculate the loction of the moon at all times.
    • Southern Rhodesia: The government of Southern Rhodesia continues its development programs across the state, promoting the South African government's requests on the betterment of its black citizens. Economic growth results from the program's success in many areas, as the employment of blacks in the major cities helps them invest in businesses across Southern Rhodesia, as many black Africans spend their money in towns that once relied solely upon the business of whites to survive. With the increase in business exchanges, economy growth stems from the progressive ideals of the Smuts government. As in South Africa, the ANC continues to spearhead the literacy program in Rhodesia, educating native populations and assisting those with an education get into a college in the major cities. Highway and railway expansion sponsored by the government of South Africa sees an additional 2500 km of paved roads and railroads added to the transportation network of the union state. The Southern Rhodesian Defense Forces place several orders with the military companies of South Africa for deliveries of new tanks and aircraft in light of the new surplus of equipment to enter into the market as the SADF upgrades its military forces.
    • Namibia: The SANEC conducts a nuclear test with its supply of fissile material, though its fails. Originally suppose to generate a 1.4 kiloton explosion in the Namib Desert, the rushed test bomb did not detonate upon hitting the ground, and had to be disarmed fifteen minutes afterward. The SANEC sends the results of its tests to the United States for feedback on the results, and continues its work to better harness the nuclear power generated in the explosion. Considered unacceptable by government officials, the SANEC moves to enhance the detonation mechanisms in the bomb to prevent any issues in the future. Another test is slated for 1950, hopefully without any issues as seen in the previous failed test explosion. Economic growth continues as usual, with no change in pace in spite of the test nuke that failed to detonate in the desert. Far from any eyes, no one is aware of the failed nuclear test, and continue about their usual routines. The military is put on high alert however, in light of the Brazilian statements.
    • Southern Angola: The Angolans increase their military drills in light of the Brazilian statement given to the South African government. Recruitment drives throughout the state see thousands of young men rush to join the military, increasing the size of the Angolan Defense Forces to 45,015 personnel. The South African government ships 150 tanks to Namibe to re-inforce the ADF's armored fleet, as well as 16 jet fighters for its air force. The glut of extra people flowing into southern Angola's cities sees the growth of the local economy, and the expansion of several "pleasure-related" industries in Namibe. The literacy rate in southern Angola continues to grow, as the military provides its own educational courses for the young men joining the forces, to support them in continuing their education outside of civilian life.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: Lesotho continues to expand its industrial sector, as well as the modernization of its capital city. Work on developing the town of Mafetang begins, as investors move into see what industries could be developed in the area. In Swaziland, the growth of the diamond-mining sector continues as usual, though diversification begins in the state as the population grows. Little else of note aside from the nation-wide literacy program's success is seen.
    • South African Indian Ocean Territories: Mauritius expands its tourist and fishing industries, while Seychelles focuses exclusively on catering to the needs of the local military garrison. Development of the Chagos Archipelago in the center of the Indian Ocean begins, though little else is done given the tiny size of the atolls. Construction of an airbase on the largest Chagosse atoll, Egmont, begins, and six combat aircraft are sent to the islands to serve as the local air force garrison.
    • They previously said no, nothing else is going to join you willingly. -Feud
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Republic of Colombia: Same as last turn.

1948.5

As India is embroiled in its own war, the wars with the other nations end.

The Khmer Rouge continunes to make attacks across the Thai border.

Ultranationalist groups angered by German co-operation with America begin to rise up throughout Germany, launching small-scale demonstrations in Berlin and Munich. The largest of the demonstrations, a 55,000-man march held in Berlin, causes major controversy when police fire on the demonstrators, killing four and wounding 33.

Um - I kind of have to call on this event while there would still be some ultra-nationalist groups, you have to keep in mind that in most Germans' minds, overt nationalism would be disavowed due to the outcome of "WW2" and keep in mind with a lot of countries in Europe going Communist or being in the French camp. The Germans would welcome an alliance with the Americans, as for the firing on protestors that bit is possible if it became a violent one. Let's face it, there is a reason it was called Red Berlin in the past. With Blood and Iron (talk) 11:52, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • Should we be calling it WW2? It was just based in Europe, and UK and Italy didn't even participate. Anyway, now I shouldn't be saying this since you are - uhh - a 'friend' but I'll say it regardless. UK, Finland, Poland and the Baltics have indeed fallen to Communism but then again, the fact that USSR ceded Northwest Poland to Germany shows 'appeasement' by the USSR to please Germany. It would certainly lead to a better view of USSR by Germany and lead to a view that USSR is not that of a threat considering how Germany had been the aggressor. As for UK, judging from how everything is going, UK doesn't even pose a threat. UK doesn't even have a player and Canada is just like "The entire British navy arrives at Canada". As for the 'French bloc' you speak of, that is non-existent. There is no French bloc. Even Belgium is no longer inside the French sphere of influence. I think that what the Mods are trying to is perhaps have Germany create its own bloc?"It's not going to suck itself." 13:54, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • It's happening. More unlikely things have happened in history so this really isn't farfetched. -Feud
  • Fair enough, but I'm not going down the line of brutal extremist Germany. Not the mods or anyone can force me to do so. Also, when I refer to the French camp I'm referring to Spain and Italy which are in France's pocket. As for the other issues mentioned, I'm not questioning the event. I'm just curious what brought it up, and stating what I did above again I plan to democratize the Reich. If it is in its own sphere there is no problem but I don't see the government changing because of a few protesters. With Blood and Iron (talk) 16:22, March 18, 2015 (UTC)

A post office is burned to the ground in Carmel, Indiana. Police investigation points towards a new radical political group, the True Americans, who are fiercely opposed to American imperialism and call for a return to traditional constitutionalist values and isolationism. As of right now, their total numbers and structure is unknown.

An anti-American group begins political activity in Colombia, calling for mass protests and boycotts on American products, which dominate the Colombian markets. Anti-American sentiment sweeps through the nation, culminating in demonstrations held in Bogota with up to 30,000 people. This movement is brutally suppressed by the Colombian government, and over 2,000 demonstrators are arrested and jailed. In response, the port in Barranquilla is essentially shut down as workers refuse to operate the second most important city in the nation. After a week of standoff between workers and the police, the police are given the order to move in and break up the strike. 33 Colombian workers are killed and hundred wounded in what would later be called Red Monday. Furthermore, the port city is heavily damaged in the ensuing chaos as oil leaks cause many raging oil fires throughout the port.

Resistance movements stiffen in Finland and Poland, and over 300 Soviet troops are killed in six months via various hit-and-run ambushes. An inventory check reveals that over 5000 rifles, 1000 machine guns and hundreds of vehicles had been secretly laundered away from the Soviet military into rebel hands – however, the root of the corruption is not certain. Improvised explosive devices, particularly in Finland, manage to knock out dozens of trucks and one tank.

The South African government is shocked to find that its premier nuclear scientist has disappeared – his body is found three days later in a dumpster with a single bullet in the head. Furthermore, about a third of his work is missing from his personal quarters, with the rest having been safe in the laboratory. This is expected to delay nuclear research by a good year and a half.

Umm, there are two branches of the SANEC for exactly this reason (look back a dozen or so turns), one in Namibia and one in South Africa. The two branches co-ordinate on their research, so as to avoid losses of information and the threat of espionage which could comprise the entire program. Like I said before, I don't do anything without planning ahead. No self-respecting nation with a major project such as this would be dumb enough to have a single site developing nuclear weapons. This weapon shall be fully armed and operational; and then we shall have... peace. ~Viva

Take your event like everyone else is. Pita wrote all of these and major accidents of this sort have happened before. The reasoning is to slow your nuclear research which is what Pita said. He obviously doesn't think 52 is a good year for you. Especially since you've been sanctioned by the US as well as Brazil, now. -Feud

Pita aside, why is the United States sanctioning South Africa? Typically, there is a reason for steps such as that. ~Viva

Cross-oceanic trade takes a brutal hit as a 15,000-ton oil tanker catastrophically explodes in the middle of the Panama Canal. Rebuilding is expected to take at least a year, and Panama reaches out to America and surrounding nations for help.

Santos, São Paulo is wracked by a devastating fire that rages for three days. Most of the municipality is destroyed in the worst fire in Brazilian history. Rebuilding is expected to take at least six months for basic structures, and a year for a complete rebuild. Fortunately, the naval base escapes relatively unscathed in what many call the Divine Intervention.

Should have had that naval base burned down ... Ya know, six months is like ... one turn? 

Throughout India, the radical hindu White Roses strategically occupy the ports of Kandia, Paradip, Mumbai, Port Blair, Mormuago, and Kolkata, securing economy dominance over the secular loyalist group dubbed the “Red Roses” for their massacre of Indian villages. Any trade grinds to a halt as all Westerners are named infidels and western ships turned away at gunpoint.

  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural although by now, large scale development projects had been initiated. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern Soviet Yakovlev Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighter and the Soviet Lavochkin L-5 and Petlyavok Pe-3 bombers. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own, soon developing the Yenilmez Y-1 fighter. However, the Soviet fighters which were generally cheaper were still imported and orders for production of the Yenilmez Y-1 were not given. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. In order to further expand Turkish influence, Turkey continued funding independence groups in Iraq and influencing such groups to lead a coup d'état over the weak Monarchy [Turn Nine of Ten]. Armaments are no longer purchased from Germany and the Panzers IV are used to arm the Greek army against the Greek rebels. Meanwhile, with the discovery that Argentina was funding Greek rebels; the Argentinian diplomats residing in Turkey are expelled and any Argentinian ship or ship with an Argentinian national on board are forbidden to enter into Turkish waters. It is generally believed in Turkey that it was a PATO plot to undermine Turkey, which leads to general negative opinion of PATO. Along the same time, the Fascist and Communist Parties are officially unbanned. 
    • ​Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. With the Greek rebels rising, the already existing Greek force of 50,000 and the Turkish force of 20,000 collaborated to fight against the rebels. Diplomats were also sent to co-ordinate with Italy to wipe out rebel strongholds. Moreover, with news arriving of foreign support to Greece, the navy initiates massive patrols around Greek coasts. It is declared that everyone would have to use the Port of Athens or Thessaloniki. Ships seen elsewhere would be immediately destroyed and ships arriving at coastlines where rebel strongholds are present, are ordered to be attacked unless it is noticed that they belong to the Turkish navy. Along the same time, air strikes are launched by the Turkish air force upon Greek Hellenic Strongholds and state propaganda makes sure to tell the people that the rebels have full plans on burning Athens and other Greek cities to the ground. Meanwhile, it is discovered that Argentina is funding Greek rebels.
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers.
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, 6 km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • South African Dip: South Africa would like to establish a trade pact with Turkey. It would be beneficial to both parties if Turkey would to accept out offer of trade.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built. Thailand's military to the border continues to deal with the attacking Khmers.
  • Canada: William Lyon Mackenzie King, after 21 years as Prime Minister, resigns as Prime Minister. Louis St Laurent is named leader of the Liberal Party, and hence the 12th Prime Minister of Canada. St Laurent vows to continue the same policies as his predecessor. One of the first things he agrees to is the United States proposal for a free trade zone, despite protests from the Conservative party an many members of the British Exodus. The Royal Canadian Navy continues its world wide tour, and the Canadian economic boom continues. With the destruction/crippling of the Panama Canal, the railroads in Canada for shipping between the East and West, is not more important than ever, and the city of Winnipeg, which long expected to be the major city in Canada before the Panama Canal, booms once again. Prime Minister St Laurent, like his predecessor, denounces the People's Union of Britain for being Communist.
  • Bulgaria: The Bulgarian government tries to build its first war plane.
  • Mihai I is the King and Petru Groza is the Prime Minister. Romania has 250.000 soldiers. Romania is happy that because of co-operation to make a plain with Switzerland. Since it did a test that was successful, Romania wants to buy ten. Romania is going to make a small cheap car in 1950's.
    • Swiss Dip: Switzerland agrees to sell ten jets, at US$ 1,900,000 each
    • That's good.
  • Argentina: The government continues economic and infrastructure improvement, and plans an interstate system to ease transportation, and serve as a rapid deployment route if invaded. Due to military build up by the South Africans, the Army drafts 10,000 soldiers into active, the Navy drafts 3000, and the Marine Corps drafts another 3000 Marines. Training continues, and the Army begins to design a new tank based off the Brazilian designs, but with a 100 mm cannon and more machine guns. Work on the assault rifle is complete and 10,000 are ordered and completed for the Army. Another order of 20,000 are planned for the beginning of next year. The Air Force receives another 12 jets, six jet trainers, and three heavy bombers. The Navy receives another 12 jet fighters. We begin a series of war games, involving one of our aircraft carriers, five destroyers, two cruisers, one heavy landing ship, the support ships, 1000 marines, 2000 soldiers, 20 light tanks, 20 medium tanks, and over 60 combat aircraft. (Eco/Infra Turn)
    • Uruguay: Connection of infrastructure with that of Argentina is completed this year. economic integration pact with Argentina is signed, giving a larger market to Uruguayan businesses. Montevideo opens to shipping that redirects from Brazil, and temporary rail lines are laid to Brazil in order to ship the goods back to Brazil. Tariffs are temporarily suspended to aid in the Brazilian recovery. (Eco/Infra Turn)
    • Paraguay: (Mil/Infra Turn)
  • Iran: continue to develop the economy and staert to develop a purely Iranian tanks using American tanks as a base. We offer newly independent Pakistan a defensice alliance and a trade agreement. The general population dislikes the Soviet and to a lesser extend the Turks due their expansionism ambition. Iranian Kurdistan continue to thrive and we start to secretly support the Turkish Kurd throughout Iranian Kurdistan to indirectly extend our influence in the region while weakening the Turkish.
  • Switzerland: is preparing for elections in 1949, with the Social Democrats seen as front-runners. The Arbalète N-20 jet begins further production and the Swiss Air Force takes delivery of the first five and begins to sell ten to Romania. Swiss influence over Liechtenstein continues [Turn Four of Six] with plans are for an eventual possible union of the states. Swiss scientists continue to tinker with small amounts of uranium and look to work with other European scientists to find peaceful/non-military uses for atomic energy. Switzerland begins looking into building a small fighter jet.
  • Belgium: We continue to develop the economy and military. Government indicates that Wallonian army should go bigger as it expected. Military would be in total residence of upgrade.
  • German Reich: In the second national elections since the restoration of democracy, the Social-democrats lose a little bit of the support they had gained in the aftermath of the war as nationalist sentiments rise up as a result of recent events with the Americans. Realizing that a firmer hand will be needed to keep civil order in Berlin and other right wing strongholds, the Centre Party, and Conservative Party scrap a bill which would have allowed American troops to be stationed on German soil . the borders with France and the USSR remain heavily fortified as German troops are stationed all the way along these borders. The G 06 becomes the standard rifle of the Wehrmacht with it having fully replaced the semi-automatic and bolt action rifles of the war with France and Russia. more Panzer V and APC's roll off the production and the performance of the tank is unmatched on continental Europe. Development of the new jet fighters continues and new bombers begins. The Germans develop a new decryption machine known as the Puzzlebox to fool other European powers (similar to the OTL British machine used to break the enigma machine, in other words the first computer), Seeing that they lack a proper intelligence service the German military formally create the Military Counter-Intelligence Service (MAD), and the Federal Intelligence Agency (BND), The Puzzle box is placed under their management. All other projects are placed under heavy security clearance as the government hopes to keep their technological advantage on the continent. Rocket development continues and the government taking a moderate interest in the talks about a space program decide to invest in the project though these plans are put on hold for a few years as reconstruction of the Rhine continues. The Rhineland is slowly starting to return to its pre-war conditions with the large factories of Essen and other towns restored and expanding their activities and other companies expanding into the area as well. Silesia's industrial sector continues to expand at an amazing rate, Germany offers Prague a free trade agreement once more (mod response please). Four more nukes are made and placed in undisclosed bunkers for protection and secrecy. The Posen-Prussia District is integrated into the Reich as the provinces of Posen and Greater Prussia with West Prussia being added to East Prussia. All those living in the area are giving residency with all those desiring German citizenship being required to swear allegiance to the fatherland and to the Kaiser. All those of German blood do it in a heartbeat while only a few Poles do so, the vast majority remain in passive resistance to their new status, At this point due to the mass expulsion of Poles from the area only about 30%  of the population is Polish while the vast majority are German who have fled from Eastern Europe. development of infrastructure in the area continues. The N 20 jet proves a capable machine but the German high command continues to seek a better design.
    • South African Dip: The South African military wishes to procure the lastest rocket designs from Germany. We are willing to pay $70 million for the license needed to produce German rockets in South Africa.
  • Brazil: The nation of Brazil continues to show immense growth in its industrial sectors as much of the industrial output goes to other nations on the continent rather than other nations outside of the continent. The Fire in Santos is a terrible tragedy and immediate relief is taken to rebuild the city. While this is going on much shipping traffic is moved to Rio De Janeiro, Porto Alegre, Bahia, and Recife. These four ports are used to pick up much the missed traffic in Santos and the workload is spread evenly. However, this does force the expansion of all four of these cities port districts. The Santos Naval base, second largest in Brazil surviving unscathed is an immense miracle and the military forces there are able to keep the peace, and provide support rather quickly to the beleaguered populace. The city cataloged its casualties at a staggering 5000 people as many were unable to escape the fire, cut off by crisscrossing infernos across the cities. The Santos Fire Storm - as it's called - is a brutal hit to Brazil's shipping and even with the redistribution to other cities, it still doesn't make up for the continent's largest shipping port to be put out of commission. The Brazilian government passes an emergency package for the city to help it rebuild as well donating millions in rebuilding funds. The Brazilian economy as a result still grows but at a slower rate than before. The Brazilian military begins to develop further as well with a next generation tank put under development as well to break out of the first generation era of tanks. Research into next generation jet aircraft continues as well with good progress being made. The Brazilian navy continues to develop as well with its two light carriers still under construction. The Brazilian fleet does add another five destroyers from the shipyards in Rio de Janeiro. The Brazilian government continues to sanction South Africa. The Brazilian military moves a few squadrons to the newly built airfields on the South Atlantic islands. The Brazilian military in the biggest war games in the nations history practices a massive amphibious invasion on the Coast of Brazil involving a large amount of Brazil's Marine Corps. This force makes incredible progress and has many of its amphibious reach shore with little to no issues, and its IFV's and APC's currently a mass produced prototype make good impressions. Brazil looks onward to Colombia seeing its issues. Brazil agrees to the equipment sale to Argentina.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to develop its oil industry and thanks to Brazil sees no decrease in the amount of oil being shipped out and only an increase. The Venezuelan oil industries have made extensive inroads into greater production and the money from the industry has begun to help Venezuela develop other production and industrial capabilities in a much better fashion. The Venezuelan government looks to prepare for another election.
    • Guyanan Confed: The Confederation continues to industrially develop. The population due to Brazilian migration has hit about one million as new industrial areas pick up significantly. The Guyanan government begins to show more pro-Brazil control as integration would serve to develop Guyana heavily into an industrial state of Brazil and would improve the areas significantly.
    • Argentinean Dip: Due to the importance of the damaged port, Argentina will take on some cargo shipments for the Brazilians. We also offer the Brazilians an aid package of ten million dollars for relief, and banks offer loans for a fixed 2.3% interest per year for a 50 year period. Construction and emergency crews are deployed to aid the Brazilians in recovery as well.
    • Brazil Dip: We will take the deal minus the emergency crews, ours are more than capable. 
  • South Africa: The government of South Africa continues to expand the nation's industrial sectors, putting more emphasize on self-sufficiency. Critical to this is the employment of black Africans in the economy, who are taking a larger and larger role in the expansion of the national economy. Several armories are built throughout the nation, with two such weapons plants built in the city of Kimberly. Exports to Brazil, never truly vital to the economy, are halted altogether, and the such for other trade partners in the world begins, with special focus on China and India. The South African navy increases its patrols in the Atlantic Ocean, and with the completion of the SAS Paul Kruger aircraft carrier, the expansion of the naval forces in the Atlantic allows for increased coverage of the region. The new carrier is assigned to the port city of Walvis Bay, where it is boarded by its crew and stocked with fuel, ammunition, and fighter craft, before heading out to sea. Two destroyers and the five requested landing ships are added to the fleet, in addition to three new minesweepers and six frigates. Third destroyer was cut from the requested list of ships in light of the navy's planned redesign for its future warships. 60 Verwoester Md.III are delivered to the army as well as 20 Atlas Arends, and the training for 500 new marines has been completed in Mauritius. The government invests in the development of new computer technologies for South Africa, seeking to build upon the success of the NSSEC in Nelspruit, which has provided accurate data on the moon's location for six months straight. Construction of a new computer at the University of Cape Town begins, with plans to design new computer technologies in that city. The ANC establishes new branch offices in other parts of Africa, promoting the ideals of the party, and the need for a pan-African union capable of resisting foreign powers and educating the masses in Africa. With focus on empowering Africans as the main theme of the ANC's message, the party encourages many Africans to join the group, and help expand the party's power base in Africa. At home, education of the black African population continues, and construction of modern cities in the black homeland territories of South Africa continues, with the aim of providing native blacks a high standard of living in the country. Prime Minister Jan Smuts authorizes the participation of the ANC in South African politics, seeking to begin work on handing power over the native African population. Having run on the platform that white minority rule could only go on for so long, Smuts has successfully made the case to the white population that the ANC is a capable force willing to work with whites following complete racial integration in South Africa. Having proven itself in the literacy programs and propaganda campaigns in southern Angola, the African National Congress has been accepted by several members of Parliament as mature enough to assume power when the time comes. Reverend John Langalibalele Dube, leader of the ANC, is admitted into the Parliament of South Africa by the prime minister, and begins to assume his official duties as an MP of South Africa. South Africa begins work on a massive coal-to-oil project, seeking to convert its huge stockpiles of coal into oil through a method known as coal liquefication. Given that coal can be converted into higher value hydrocarbons, the South African government sponsors the project fully, and constructs several coal-to-oil plants throughout the country.
    • Southern Rhodesia: Southern Rhodesia expands its military forces from 22,146 personnel to 34,078 personnel, to increase its participation in the Union Defence Forces. Expansion of the local industries takes priority in the nation, with the construction of several factories related to steel production opened in the city of Salisbury. Acknowledging the South African government's request that all union states expand their local industries for great economic independence from the world market, Southern Rhodesia moves to fulfill its union obligations. The government begins drawing up plans for Operation Good Samaritan, the details of which remain unknown to even the South African government.
    • Southern Angola: The middle class population of southern Angola begins to emerge as good government planning and expansion of the local industries related to oil production and cash crops exports expand. The city of Namibe finds itself one of the most highly developed areas in South Africa, and considered the "Johannesburg of Angola" as wealth pours into the city. Development of the countryside in southern Angola continues as the expansion of the railways linking to fertile farmlands and mining centers, as well as the growing settlements out in the far eastern half of the state, to the major cities of southern Angola. Military training continues along the northern border of the state, with the equipment delivered to the ADF put to use in the military wargames.
    • Namibia: The SANEC moves to deal with the recent breach of security at its nuclear research site. Many scientists are actually pleased with the head scientists demise, stating that his unfeasible plans and eccentric ideas were holding the project back. He was in fact the reason for the test bomb's failure earlier in the year, and a more competent head is appointed to lead the program. It is expected that the next bomb will perform better than the one designed by the last scientist, with a greater level of professionalism assigned to the program. All on-site personnel are not permitted to leave, and several NDF personnel are stationed around the site to prevent any attempts to breach security, and all important research documents are to be left in the laboratory at all times, with no fewer than twenty armed personnel assigned to guard duty. A secondary research sites is built deeper into the Namib Desert, where parallel research will take place, just in case another assassination happens. Namibia continues its economic and industrial development, with priority placed on the mining of uranium. Another ton of U-352 fissile material is produced and sent to the storage sites in the desert.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: The modernization of Maseru is completed by the government, with the new capital city's street plans one of modernity. The population around the city are permitted to move in, and establish themselves in the city, with many middle-class Basotho in other parts of South Africa, moving home to live in the newly redesigned capital. In Swaziland, the development of new industries continues with government oversight. The expansion of a newly build textile plant is completed, and employed hundreds of women looking to help expand the savings of their families. The encouragement of women to join in the economy of the nation sees thousands of Swazi women taking up jobs while their husbands and sons are off at work in the mines and refineries. The ANC sees the change as a form of female empowerment, and promotes the change in other parts of the nation and Africa itself.
    • South African Indian Ocean Territories: Expansion of the industries and economy of the island territories continue. With the increase of marine personnel training in the region, local businesses see an upswing in sales from off-duty marines in the area. The construction of the airbase in the Chagasso Islands is completed, and the air force of South Africa establishes a presence there in the form of the six aircraft assigned to the islands protection. A force of 150 marines are assigned to the islands south of the Maldives, to protect the islands from any potential assaults from the Indians fighting on the subcontinent to the north. Two warships are also assigned to patrol duties to deal with any refugees fleeing the civil war in India.
    • That's a really cheap way to avoid a mod event, Viva. 
    • Oh? And how am I avoiding it? You've increased the time it'll take for me to get a bomb, I can't change that. So I honestly don't see what it is I'm avoiding. ~Viva 
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan, and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 70,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer. With support from the Germans, Americans and Iranians, Saudi Arabia moves on Kuwait.
    • Kingdom of Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. Oil profits also allow for the purchase of arms from other nations. Yemen moves on Aden, hoping to reclaim the Greater Yemeni Area.
    • Kingdom of Kuwait: Mil/eco improvements. More later.
  • Australia: The nation is preparing for the 1949 federal election. Infrastructure is improved. The railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built. (Now the terminus is in Ceduna, AU-SA)
    • Papua: Economy is improved.
    • Indonesia: A new factory is being built in Surabaya.
  • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostiliates with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the reintroduction of Chinese land back into the Republic.
    • South African Dip: South Africa would like to invest into the local businesses of China, as well as support the economic redevelopment of the nation in the wake of the turbulent period China has just undergone. If you wish, South Africa is also willing to aid in the rebuilding of the Chinese military as well, in addition to providing military equipment to the Chinese army, air force, and navy, all at discounted prices.
    • Chinese Diplomacy: We graciously accept all the offers proposed by the South Africans, forming friendly relations with them.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Ethiopia: We would also like to be included in the peace talks to ratify our faith. We invade British Kenya, Somaliland and Southern Sudan.(mod response) We also build up our navy. We continue to industrialize and begin demobilizing in hope France accepts our deal.
  • The United States takes a hit to its economy this year. Troops are deployed to the Canal Zone to help clear the wreckage and restore the affected area to working conditions. Back at home, Thomas E. Dewey wins the presidential election and pins the recent bad events on the Democrats, who are now the minority in both houses of Congress. One of his first steps is to denounce the True Americans as Communist traitors. This claim is met with thunderous support everywhere, as is evidenced in newspapers and public polls. As the Army ends the occupation of Haiti, the occupation of Mexico continues. The United States begins to build more nukes. The Territory of Alaska is admitted as the 50th state. President Dewey officially creates the North American Free Trade Area that was previously proposed by Wallace. The Bahamas, Mexico, and Haiti are the other nations are that are part of the area, but Canada is also invited to join. The first monkey astronaut is launched into space.
    • The American military occupation of Mexico continues. Preparations are made for free and open elections, but the military expects fighting to break out between the two opposing factions. In the meantime, Eisenhower is moved into Mexico as the military governor of the whole nation, unseating Patton, who resigns from the army. Meanwhile, all the fancy and advanced equipment is moved to the southern border.

1949.0

The weak Communist government in Britain suffers massive rebellions. It is predicted to fall within the next year.

Kashmir revolts against Pakistan. They are not strong, but are still a burden.

The American occupation of Mexico leads to economic troubles in the region, especially in Mexico and US border states. Cuba is also affected.

Economic troubles in South Africa and Brazil.

The Khmer Rouge continues to make raids across the border into Thailand.

The Hellenic Freedom Army continues to fight a guerrilla war against the Turks and the Italians.

  • Great Britain: In the second regime change in a decade, the British military launches a coup d'état against the weak Communist government. The government falls relatively quickly as it is unable to garner the support of the hungry and angry populace. Director of Internal Security Tony Reacher leads the coup, which culminates in the assassination of the entire Politburo of the Communist Party of Great Britain. Moving quickly, Reacher enforces mandatory curfew and martial law. Reacher calls for a new constitution, and an interim government is formed under the leadership of Reacher himself.
    • German Dip: Berlin applauds the efforts of the military to expel Communism from the British Isles and recognizes the new government as the sole government in the British Isles. 
  • Ecuador: Economy becomes the focus of the Melendez administration. He decides to downsize the military, as he says that the nation should work towards industrialization rather than militarism (also, he knows that Brazil and Argentina have Ecuador's back). We improve our economy as well as the infrastructure within Guayaquil. We hope for Guayaquil to become a major industrial city due to it being the only major Ecuadorian port. With Peru and Colombia not so trustworthy, we ask GEACOPS, New Zealand, the USA, China, and Australia to form a Pacific trading organization. We focus on industrializing the city of Guayaquil, which we hope to become a larger and more important city. Expeditions in the East of the country continue.
    • Argentinean Dip: We offer a trade agreement and economic pact.
    • Brazil Dip: We request the right to build a base in Ecuador to house the future Brazilian Pacific fleet.
    • Ecuador accepts both, but remind Argentina that it will be tough because you don't have a port on the pacific or a border.
  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural although by now, large scale development projects had been initiated. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. In order to further expand Turkish influence, Turkey continued funding independence groups in Iraq and influencing such groups to lead a coup d'état over the weak Monarchy [Turn Ten of Ten]. Armaments are no longer purchased from Germany and the Panzers IV are used to arm the Greek army against the Greek rebels. Meanwhile, with the discovery that Argentina was funding Greek rebels; the Argentinian diplomats residing in Turkey are expelled and any Argentinian ship or ship with an Argentinian national on board are forbidden to enter into Turkish waters. It is generally believed in Turkey that it was a PATO plot to undermine Turkey, which leads to general negative opinion of PATO. Along the same time, the border with Iran was getting fortified.
    • ​Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Not even gonna mention da war. Make the algo Pita .-. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers.
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, 6 km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: The South African offer of a trade pact is accepted. 
    • Argetinean Dip: We remove our diplomats and ships from the Turkish waters, but leave a destroyer just outside of their waters. Our government's only reason for arming the Greek rebels was a form of protest against Turkish destruction of Greek culture by raising Turkish flags and removing their government and oppressing their civilian population. Those in congress who has opposed arming the rebels write a letter of apology over the incident, pointing though that only 2000 obsolete bolt action rifles ended up in the nation, and no other weapons ended up in Greek hands.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Turkey rejects the Argentinian view that Turkey has been destroying Greek cultures, for we have merely erected Turkish flags. Moreover, the removal of the Greek government was necessary as it would've been impossible to co-operate with the same government with whom war had been waged. Moving on, it would be an insult to say that the Greeks have been oppressed for not only has Greece risen economically, but social welfare, healthcare and life expectancy have largely increased. The poverty stricken and economically collapsed Greece before the war has no comparison to what Greece has no achieved. Finally, no matter how many arms have been sent; it is an act of war for Argentina to fund insurgencies in Turkey. Therefore, we shall cut off all links with Argentina and we demand immediate release of our diplomats like the way we have expelled Argentinian diplomats. Any trade between Argentina and Turkey shall now end, unless Argentina apologizes and puts a halt to their funding.
    • Argentinean Dip: Actually, the funding had already ended, after the government decided it was not worth the effort. The government officially apologizes and the diplomats are released. A huge debate breaks out in Congress over the situation, with half the party members crossing the floor calling for new elections due to the crisis this has caused. Many congressmen had been told that the bill was to arm the Greek police, not insurgents, as the wording was vague. The congressmen who wrote it up were impeached on bribery charges after some unusual gifts were found. The government officially apologizes for this awkward situation.
    • German Dip: The German government approaches Ankara in the hopes of dispelling any beliefs that Germany may have had something to do with the revolt.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Turkey accepts the Argentinian apology. As for Germany, while the government takes into account the German view that it had nothing to do with the conflict; it would surely not be possible to completely rule out German involvement. For now, Turkey will maintain that PATO had been behind the revolt.
    • Argentinean Dip: Actually, we can prove that PATO was not behind the revolt as we have recordings found in the home of one of the impeached congressman that was the plan to give weapons to the rebels. After listening, it reveals the location of a secret port built for smuggling weapons as well as the area of a secret base, and some of the leadership of the rebels who had met with this man. We offer to turn this over to the Turkish authorities as a sign of our sincerness over the matter.
  • France: The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves at a full 1.5 million. The AMX 13's first prototype is being built as we speak to role out the next generation of tanks. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess. We sell to the nations of Ecuador, Iran, and other nations willing to buy (Military/Economy turn).
    • Ecuador no longer wants the weapons. No new weapons will be bought.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built. Thailand deploys more military to the border and continues to deal and fight against the attacking Khmers.
  • Brazil: Brazil continually facing economic trouble looks for ways out of this only to see that the rebuilding of Santos is the only way to combat as the loss of an entirely productive city has given a solid hit to Brazil's growing economy. With nearly a full year done since the great fire of Santos, the city has had much of its capabilities rebuilt with the shipping port status making headlines again as Santos takes its spot now as the 2nd largest shipping port behind Rio de Janeiro with soon expectations to overtake it once again as the largest shipping port. The Brazilian economy while taking a hit, does not exactly fully slow its growth as minor growth still takes place within an acceptable projection rather than a total contraction of the economy. However, this is known as the 1949 recession as various industries show lower prices. The Brazilian Nuclear program continues to manufacture the weapons adding another two weapons to the arsenal. The Brazilian jet designers fully develop its new jet the F-108 Falchion the next generation fighter aircraft for Brazil. With the further development of the air force the Navy still continues development of its first carrier fighters and brings out a few prototype designs. The Brazilian light carrier fleet continues construction with the two light carriers entering their final years of construction. The Brazilian development of Tanks continues as do IFV's and APC's The Nation itself continues its own industrial growth in differing industries particularly the new exploitation of oil. Brazil makes a major breakthrough in rocketry sending the T-1 Rocket into a major testing capacity now. The Brazilian Federal congress beings a vote on  integration of Guyana as a fully fledged Brazilian State.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to develop its main oil production capacity and continues heavily with its moderate commodities industries as well as some rubber. The Venezuelan nation does continues to see more want for an increased military in order to more effectively contribute to PATO. The Venezuelan air force adds Brazilian fighters to the air fleet.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanan confederation continues to develop with intense bauxite and manganese mining taking place. The Population grows ever more Brazilian as more assimilation and migration takes place
  • Belgium: The Wallonian Army is going to upgrade. While it is small from undercover, Spaak interested for more difference and more power to its economy and military to respond. Likely in other news, the model buldings starts to build around Liege.
  • Argentina: With trade cut off with Turkey, we increase trading with Germany, Japan, and the United States. Some in Congress who wanted to arm the rebels lose their seats in Congress. The army receives another 15,000 assault rifles. Construction of radar stations begin on the various South Atlantic Islands. Another 12 jet fighters for the Air Force, 12 for the Navy, and six trainers are completed. The economy has a strong domestic base to it with cars being manufactured as well as radios, televisions, and other smaller household products. We ban Turkish shipping from our waters and the Tierra delmFuego pass. All Turkish diplomats are isolated to the embassy with a company of soldiers guarding them. (Mil/Eco Tun)
    • Uruguay: The navy receives four patrol boats to replace the ancient gunboats which are showing their age. The Army receives 20 infantry cruiser tanks. The government declares neutrality in the situation with Turkey and South Africa. The government still debates whether to join Argentina politically. (Mil/Eco Turn)
    • Paraguay: The military looks into purchasing new tanks, and weapons to replace the aged, WWI vintage rifles and equipment. The government continues to connect our infrastructure to that of Brazil's and Argentina's. (Mil/Infra turn)
  • USGN: Mil and eco. Support for the government in Flanders has risen over the last years. The ports of Rotterdam and Antwerpen flourish, and so does the economy. PATO membership makes for even more support. After some time of debating it, we officially recognize Canada as the successor of the United Kingdom, while we recognize the PUB as a completely different state. The Panzer V is the official tank of the Dtuch army
    • Batavia: Mil and eco.
  • Australia: The nation is preparing for the 1949 federal election. Economy and Military are improved. The railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built. (Now the terminus is at Yalata, AU-SA)
    • Papua: Mil/Eco turn.
    • Indonesia: Mil/Eco turn.
  • Switzerland: prepares for elections in half a year. The Social Democrats are projected to win but the Christian Democrats see support climb. Swiss influence over Liechtenstein continues [Turn Five of Six].
  • German Reich: In the second national elections since the restoration of democracy, the Social-democrats lose a little bit of the support they had gained in the aftermath of the war as nationalist sentiments rise up as a result of recent events with the Americans. Realizing that a firmer hand will be needed to keep civil order in Berlin and other right wing strongholds, the Centre Party, and Conservative Party scrap a bill which would have allowed American troops to be stationed on German soil . the borders with France and the USSR remain heavily fortified as German troops are stationed all the way along these borders. The G 06 becomes the standard rifle of the Wermacht with it having fully replaced the semi-automatic and bolt action rifles of the war with France and Russia. more Panzer V and APC's roll off the production and the performance of the tank is unmatched on continental Europe. Development of the new jet fighters continues and new bombers begins. The Germans develop a new decryption machine known as the puzzlebox to fool other European powers (similar to the OTL British machine used to break the enigma machine, in other words the first computer), Seeing that they lack a proper intelligence service the German military formally create the Military Counter-Intelligence Service (MAD), and the Federal Intelligence Agency (BND), The Puzzle box is placed under their management. All other projects are placed under heavy security clearance as the government hopes to keep their technological advantage on the continent. Rocket development continues with the development of the V-3 rocket, the new design has better accuracy. The government taking a moderate interest in the talks about a space program decide to invest in the project though these plans are put on hold for a few years as reconstruction of the Rhine continues. The Rhineland is slowly starting to return to its pre-war conditions with the large factories of Essen and other towns restored and expanding their activities and other companies expanding into the area as well. Silesia's industrial sector continues to expand at an amazing rate, Germany offers Prague a free trade agreement once more (mod response, please). Four more nukes are made and placed in undisclosed bunkers for protection and secrecy. The Posen-Prussia District is integrated into the Reich as the provinces of Posen and Greater Prussia with West Prussia being added to East Prussia. All those living in the area are giving residency with all those desiring German citizenship being required to swear allegiance to the fatherland and to the Kaiser. All those of German blood do it in a heartbeat while only a few Poles do so, the vast majority remain in passive resistance to their new status, At this point due to the mass expulsion of Poles from the area only about 30%  of the population is Polish while the vast majority are German who have fled from Eastern Europe. Development of infrastructure in the area continues. The N 20 jet proves a capable machine but the German high command continues to seek a better design. Berlin declares that the Iron Rhine is officially reopened spanning from Rotterdam and Antwerp, to the Ruhr, Breslau and Vienna making it the one of the largest railways in Europe. Trade in the area and transportation of goods increases drastically with the reopening of the Iron Rhine. 
  • Bulgaria: Bulgaria has its first elections between a Communist party with 35% of the votes and a Republican party with 26%. The ruling party has the rest of the votes, however, being a Representative Democracy, The Communist Party is centered at Sofia and sparsely scattered elsewhere and the Republican is scattered and gains just three electoral votes. The Communists gain five electoral votes (In spite of one million Communists voting) and the Democrats gain 19 electoral votes. With the ruling party victory, the Communists revolt. The revolution is headed by the OTL 1949 leader of Bulgaria: Mincho Neychev. The ruling party asks for support, and so does the Communists. The Republicans, however, lay Idly back and watch. (I hope this is plausible.)
    • German Secret Dip: Scared of the spread of Communism into the balkans Berlin begins to secretly supply arms to the monarchists in Bulgaria and to all anti-Communist groups in Bulgaria. In public the government speaks out against the uprising and promises support for the ruling party against the Communists.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 80,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer.
    • Kingdom of Greater Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. With Aden now under the  Yemeni government, the nation celebrates. The Capital is relocated to Aden, and efforts to fix the damage caused by the war begin
    • Kingdom of Kuwait: Saudi Military occupation continues, projected to end sometime next year. The Nation sees an economic growth, using the large amount of oil in the region to sell off to foreign powers.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy is overthrown, and Charles II becomes King of Hungary. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • How many time is Miklos Horthy going to be overthrown? And how many times is Charles II going to become the king of Hungary?
  • In the United States, the building of a nuclear stockpiling continues. The Dewey administration decides to begin funding the Hellenic Freedom Army in secret. With the signing of the NAFT Agreement, the NAFT Area becomes a reality. As such, the American economy becomes more closely intertwined with that of Mexico and Haiti specifically. Senator Joe McCarthy proposes a controversial plan that would lead to Mexico, Haiti and the Bahamas becoming part of the United States. It is quickly shot down and receives little support from either party, but McCarthy becomes notorious for even proposing the idea. In the executive branch, the Cabinet departments of the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force are all rolled into the Department of War. Also, the office of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is created. The first 20mm M61 Vulcan Gatling gun prototypes are completed. The first Bundeswagon Beetle arrives in the United States. Radiocarbon dating is invented by a scientist. Cool things happen.
    • The American military occupation of Mexico continues. Senator McCarthy's plan is met with great anger in Mexico and there are a number of protests, both violent and peaceful, against the occupying forces, although none are of great note. Regardless, Mexico's economy begins to improve thanks to the end of war and the creation of NAFTA.
    • In Haiti, the economy sees an upswing due to the creation of NAFTA. Infrastructure is improved.
    • In the Bahamas, there is economic growth, again because of the creation of NAFTA. Meanwhile, the military is improved with American technology and stuff.
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan, and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur. Atomic detonation this year, hooray.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • South Africa: The economy begins to slow in light of the Brazilian attacks on the South African economy. However, with trade opened up with the Turks and the Chinese, South African economists predict a strong recovery in the coming years, especially with the greater numbers of black Africans beginning to work their way into the national economy. With black companies such as Inqola growing strong in South Africa, the government is confident in a full recovery by the mid-1950s. The annual census in South Africa reveals a population increase of 4.9%, while economic growth has slowed to 3.6%, short of the 8% growth expected by the government. In the other territories, population growth of 3-6% is recorded by government officials. The University of Cape Town constructs the EDSAC, the world's first practical stored-program computer, with storage capacity for more than one thousand words and 17 bits of memory. Plans to further develop the technology in the future. The military receives an additional 70 Verwoester Md.III tanks and 15 Atlas Arends. 30 Arends are shipped off to China along with 50 Verwoester Md.III's and 100 Verwoester Md.I's, along with several tons of spare parts and hundreds of personnel to assist the Chinese in training with the equipment. The ANC continues its standard literacy and empowerment programs across South Africa. South Africa reorganizes its government to remove all former references to the British Empire, replacing the position of Prime Minister with President, and creating the office of Deputy President. Jan Smuts assumes to the office of the President of South Africa, while James Moroka of the ANC is given the position of Deputy President as part of a reconciliation process that is to help black Africans enter into the government. Adding to the the introduction of the first major black politician into the government of South Africa, the Parliament of South Africa assigns 150 of its 400 seats to black African members of the ANC, who are to govern the nation alongside 210 members of the United Party of South Africa, a predominately British South African party dominated by Jan Smuts. The other forty seats are given the remaining membership of the Afrikaner National Party, and several other smaller parties. It is hoped that by 1955, a black majority government will be able to assume total control of the nation. Three coal liquefaction plants are constructed in Secunda, South Africa, allowing the nation to convert large amounts of coal into petroleum, reducing the nation's dependence on oil imports and massive and expensive oil refineries in southern Angola.
    • ​Southern Rhodesia: Southern Rhodesia continues its literacy programs in the nation, and the expansion of the military forces combat capacity. The industrial complexes of the nation are also expanded in light of the government's planned self-sufficiency program. Urbanization of the black African population results in economic upswings in many areas, and the importation of heavy industrial equipment allows for the development of major industries in Southern Rhodesia.
    • Namibia: The SANEC continues its nuclear research tests, with the increased security at the several nuclear facilities water-tight in light of the previous murder of a South African nuclear scientist. The economy has slowed to a crawl, with little immigration and little expansion of the local businesses resulting in a sluggish economic growth quarter for 1949 in Namibia. The NDF continues its combat training in desert warfae, as well as expanding its naval patrols off the coast of Namibia.
    • Southern Angola: The defense of Namibe continues with the ADF's development of the local defense of the nation. The oil refineries are expanded by the government of South Africa, and the local infrastructure developed to assist in the urbanization of the nation. Economic growth, though slow, remains constant in the nation.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: Industrial expansion in Lesotho and Swaziland continue under the supervision of the South African government. The defense forces of the two states are expanded in their combat capabilities, allowing the union states to assist in the wider protection of the Union of South Africa.
    • South African Indian Ocean Territories: The economy and the industries of the island territories are improved and expanded by the local government.
    • God damn it, just format with everyone else.

1949.5

The Canadian economy takes a plunge as historically low oil prices cripple the oil export economy and government overspending shoots the deficit in the billions of Canadian dollars. The unemployment rate shoots up to 19% in three months as thousands of government services shut down and citizens begin hoarding money. The Canadian Stock Market crashes as nearly every investor sells out in a period of three days. The Canadian Depression of 1949 has begun, and people begin to look towards radical and ultranationalist political parties for economic and political reform.

In what would later be known as the Great American Depression, the economies of almost every nation in North and South America take a dip due to recent events in Brazil, Colombia, Panama, and Canada. While not as severe as the Great Depression, it causes inflation ranging from incremental to major across both continents.

Finnish resistance against Soviet rule stiffens as crackdowns continue. The internal investigation of the GRU and KGB reveals a startling detail: several documents pertaining to the Soviet nuclear program have gone missing, including key details on yellowcake production and centrifuges. The location of these papers is unknown, but further investigation narrows it down to three places: the Americans and the CIA, the French, or the black market in India. The financial trail reveals the most likely suspect is India, most specifically the White Roses, who have been secretly asking around for details regarding the Soviet or American nuclear programs.

The True Americans continue to be pests in America, with medium-sized rallies occurring under police supervision in Indianapolis and Memphis. The movement spreads fairly quickly in the Midwest and the South, calling for an end to American imperialism and a reversal back to isolationism. There are talks of a demonstration in Washington, D.C. within a year. The leader of the movement is identified as an Indiana native Joseph Griffin.

The American-backed Colombian government is overrun by protestors and military as crippling economic conditions cause government approval ratings to plunge to single digits. As protestors swell in Bogota, the military moves and seizes control of the presidential residence and parliament. The president and his cabinet is removed in a bloodless transition of power as the military seizes control. Democratic elections are promised and a temporary interim council is appointed to oversee the transition. Meanwhile, angry workers seize the American-owned oilfields in the Rubiales, claiming that Colombia is for the Colombians.

The White Roses begin consolidating their power in India as the Red Roses find themselves crippled by a tightening economic noose. Radical Hinduism rises in numbers every day as White Rose preachers proclaim a message of radical extremism and religious war.

In Britain, the Scots begin calling for their own independent nation. They make commmon cause with the Irish nationalists in northern Ireland. The Scottish Independence Front begins fighting against the British military government and are frequently aided by civilians and members from the pre-Communist government.

In French Indochina, the Khmer Rouge, which has mostly become an organized military force, seize control of Phnom Penh after two months of siege. The People's Republic of Cambodia is declared. Cambodia officially declares war on the Kingdom of Thailand.

  • Canada: The post British Exodus economic boom comes to crashing halt as many of the companies that were established by British refugees were found to be basically insolvent from the get go. The Toronto Stock Market crashes, losing over 60% of its value in days. Prime Minister St Laurent is now faced with a huge political crisis that he can't quite solve. The Progressive-Conservative Party, Co-operative Commonwealth Federation and several Liberal members force a vote of Non-Confidence, and an immediate Election. The Progressive Conservative Party, led by John Bracken, former Premier of Manitoba, becomes Prime Minister, but with a minority government, though a "Canada First" movement established after the British Exodus, as well as the Commonwealth Party, gain a lot of seats. Proposing to end partisanship and restore prosperity to Canada like he did to Manitoba when he became premier, he established a "National Coalition" of the three major political parties (Progressive-Conservative, Liberal and CCF) to end political squabbling, over the cries of the extreme Left and Right. However, his plans to solve the crisis really only boils down to "Let the Provinces and private industry solve it," and he engages in massive tax and spending cuts, canceling the negotiations to enter the American centered Free Trade Association, mothballing a huge portion of the Royal Canadian Navy, and halving the size of the army and Air Force. The Canadian economy continues to go downhill, but the slide starts to level out, so people start to think that this drastic action might just save the economy. Prime Minister Bracken is glad to see the Communists have been driven from power in the UK, but the Royal Family is hesitant to return back to England yet.
  • France: The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves at a full 1.5 million. The AMX 13's first prototype is being built as we speak to role out the next generation of tanks. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. With the recent events in Indochina we see fit to leave as we do not have the full capabilities to hold those colonies. In secret we actively destroy any resources and or industry that could be used against us in the future before we begin leaving the Khmer to rot in Indochina. (Military/Economy turn)
  • Brazil: With another major recession upon the nation Brazil immediately shows setbacks in nearly all its industrial sectors due to the lack of protections in place for this sort of thing. The Economic growth in general shrinks a bit as well with the Brazilian GDP showing hardly any major positive growth, with the only positive growth being due to a more well developed economy this time around. Inflations while present is not an outright major issue for Brazil as the strengthened Real has led to a much lesser inflation than previously. The Port of Santos has also had its entire city structure rebuilt now with many returning back to the city. It once again claims top shipping port on the continent and begins to offset the Depression to some degree. The Brazilian Military slows down many of its developments particularly putting its two Light carriers near completion on hold due to a slowed economy. Many military bases get lesser complements and the remaining men are used much less for less costly operations and training missions. The Brazilian Civilian aeronautics industry howevers shows major growth as aerial shipping, and civilian air traffic begins to expand significantly as the Air travel option becomes more and more viable with better and better engines. The First Civilian jetliner is also developed and this heralds the dawn of the Civilian Jet age as private coroporations are able to produce this technology for more than military purposes. The Brazilian highway program surprisingly picks up pace as many out of work from the recession take up working on it to expand it and link up various Areas. The Brazilian Pan-Atlantic Railway is finished with all of Brazil's Coastal railways linking up with what's known as the "Grand Terminus" in Rio De Janeiro. This harbors another alternative for shipping goods across the nation as much of this railway system goes to many resource rich and developed areas. Brazil's government under Ramos begins to show interest in the Colombian situation looking to add them within the Brazilian Trade group it has with the entire rest of the continent. Brazil offers major oil trade to the US to offset the lack of Colombian oil and to promote joint US-Brazilian Capitalism. The Brazilian Federal Senate authorizes the full annexation of Guyana as a state offering all the rights, liberties, and benefits guaranteed under the Brazilian constitution. With the economic depression on us, the Brazilian Navy puts away many of its submarines and destroyers to save on funding for the time being with much of the fleet running peacetime operations rather than alerted higher ops
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to develop its oil and refining industries and tags along with the Brazilian offer of oil to the US in order to promote US-South American Relations. The Venezuelan people show a noticeable shift towards a more liberal status as the small military and protectionism from the government has fostered a liberal but somewhat capitalistic attitude. The Venezuelan congress does also re-vote on the multiple Brazilian bases in Venezuela, but they vote positive for them once again. The Venezuelan population reaches 4.3 million and beginning to grow much more. The Venezeulan military begins to standardize munitions and nearly all equipment standard to Brazil for a shift into standard munitions to prevent PATO alliance complications.
  • Romania: Mihai I is the King and Petru Groza is the Prime Minister. Romania has 250.000 soldiers.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built. Thailand continues fighting against the invading Cambodians, and uses its full military force to do so. Thailand also asks for any help to fight against the Cambodian aggression.
  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural although by now, large scale development projects had been initiated. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. In order to further expand Turkish influence, Turkey continued funding independence groups in Iraq and influencing such groups to lead a coup d'état over the weak Monarchy [Turn Ten of Ten]. Armaments are no longer purchased from Germany and the a deal was struck with Argentina over something that I am too lazy to mention here. Along the same time, the border with Iran was heavily fortified and President Marshall Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak suffers a stroke. He is hospitalized and the President of the Socialist Party is selected as an Interim President until Cakmaks return. If Cakmak fails to return by 31st April 1950, then elections shall be held. 
    • ​Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Not even gonna mention da war. Make the algo Pita .-. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers.
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, 6 km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Republic of Iraq: With the Monarchy overthrown in a Turkish - Soviet backed coup d'état, Turkish agents along with the revolutionaries had the entire Royal family massacred. With the job done, the Revolutionaries announced their control over Iraq and soon; 30,000 Turkish soldiers were airlifted to Iraq with the help of the Revolutionaries. The soldiers were deployed to temporarily maintain control whilst power was transfered from the now dead Monarchy to the Iraqi Communist Party and other pro Soviet groups. Meanwhile, a Treaty of Peace, Friendship and Co-operation was signed between Iraq and Turkey and it was agreed that Turkey would withdraw completely from the Peoples Republic of Iraq by 3rd January 1950. Indeed, to further garner support from the masses; Turkish agents exploited religion and informed the populace that Islam would be restored to Iraq and that the Pro-British Monarchy had finally been overthrown. Moreover, well aware of Irans growing influence amongst the Shiite populace of Iraq; Turkey collaborated with the revolutionaries to promote Arab nationalism in order to oppose Shi'ite sectarianism and made sure to drag on the Shatt al-Arab Dispute.

  • Federation of New Zealand: We accept the invitation to join the Commonwealth of Nations. However, we decide to retain our independence, we also seek to join the League of Nations. New Zealand continues to do things, mainly infrastructure, economy and military. We also offer to help Canada and Australia. Political parties grow. The economy is good after finding some oil of the coast and we begin to research submarine volcanoes. We also make national parks and protect animals from being killed. This year, the Constiution of the Federation of New Zealand is signed. (Pls make archives)

    • Ecuador Dip: We ask you to become a founding member of the Pacific Trade Organization.
  • Belgium: Possible talks with Spaak about the hopes of more troops. The plan will guide them in straight forward. Liege, the capital city would be prepared to build more structures and buildings around.
  • Switzerland: elects the Christian Democrats on a platform of reduced spending over fears of the North American recession spreading to Europe. Swiss influence over Liechtenstein continues [Turn Six of Six]. Work on a small Swiss jet slows and rumors persist the project may be cancelled, as could be any serious work using nuclear energy in the next decade.
    • Liechtenstein: Liechtenstein now looks to continue the course of integration with Switzerland. Prince Franz-Josef II states he would be pleased to monarch of a joint Switzerland and Liechtenstein, especially seeing as the Swiss government has not advanced much on its plan to create a head of state.
  • South Africa: Deputy President James Moroka is arrested and convicted of "statutory Communism", along with 20 other South Africans. However, he pleads for mitigation, and rejects the ANC's principles of racial equality in exchange for being released. He is rebuked and expelled from the ANC, and replaced as the Deputy President of South Africa by Albert Lutuli, who also takes over the ANC in the wake of Moroka's expulsion from the party. President Smuts complains of heart pains and is admitted into the hospital. He is released shortly afterward, and returns to work. The South African government passes the 1949 Native Voting Act, as part of the UP-ANC reconciliation plan, which allows for the enfranchisement of all adult black males in the country, finally giving black South Africans a say in the running of their government. Elections which will for the first time allow blacks to vote will take place in 1952. However, blacks may still be elected to government posts, though only by white South Africans. The coal liquefaction plants in Sucunda have produced several thousands of barrels of petroleum, and have reached the government's ceiling for the program to be declared a success. With an indigenous supply of petroleum, the South African government begins to cut back on oil imports, and focus on local production petrochemicals to support the government's self-sufficiency plans. Agricultural production is at such a point where South Africa is already completely independent in food supply. With the membership of Southern Rhodesia, Africa's "breadbasket", South Africa produces an even greater surplus of foodstuffs that can be sold on the global market. Resource-wise, South Africa produces all of the minerals needed to sustain an independent industrial complex with foreign support. With aerospace, automotive, and service industries having matured successfully under the Smuts government, the government of South Africa begins to reduce its dependence on foreign imports, such as food, automotive and heavy industrial equipment, most of which can already be produced in South Africa. In light of the previous census, the South African Defense Forces begins a recruitment drive to increase the size of the armed forces up to 98,106 armed personnel, and increase the navy from 93 warships to 122 warships. The South African Air Force begins to decommission its fleet of Atlas Aasvoël I piston engine fight aircraft, and replace them with new Atlas Arend, of which 15 have just been delivered to the air force. Economic growth remains sluggish for the latter part of 1949, but recovery is predicted by South African economists in light of the government's self-sufficiency programs and the entry of a large, educated workforce from the black population into the South African economy. The University of Cape Town begins work on the world's first practical stored-program computer, under the aegis of several members of Cambridge who fled the United Kingdom following the nation's fall to Communism. The university receives sponsorship from the South African government, which states its support for any projects promoting development of science and technology. South Africa continues to ship out aircraft and military vehicles to China to help rebuild the Chinese military.
    • Southern Rhodesia: Southern Rhodesia chances its name to Zimbabwe in light of the 1949 Native Voting Act. Zimbabwe focuses on developing its agricultural sector to help increase the ability of the union as a whole support itself agriculturally. Though already considered the "breadbasket of Africa", many government officials agree that there is room for growth, and with new industrial equipment being shipped in from South Africa, and the growing ability of the black population of understand how to operate modern equipment, Zimbabwe embarks upon a plan to expand the nation's agricultural output to double its current output by 1958. The network of railways continues to grow in Zimbabwe, along with the development of major industries in the cities of Salisbury and Bulawayo, the latter considered the industrial center of Zimbabwe. The ZDF continues its combat training to enhance its effectiveness in the field.
    • Namibia: The Namibian government continues to support economic growth and development, along with the development of major towns outside of Windhoek and Walvis Bay. The mining industry prospers under such support, and the expansion of businesses related to supporting these industries becomes a major priority for businessmen residing in Namibia.
    • Southern Angola: Southern Angola expands its literacy program into the countryside of the nation, while supporting the construction of colleges in the major cities and the capital of Namibe. Railway expansion continues, and the highways of South Africa finally make their way up and into southern Angola, allowing for the population to freely travel across their nation without the need for trains. The ADF continues its combat drills outside of Namibe along the northern border.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: Industrial expansion in Lesotho and Swaziland continue under the supervision of the South African government. The defense forces of the two states are expanded in their combat capabilities, allowing the union states to assist in the wider protection of the Union of South Africa.
    • South African Island Territories: The economy and the industries of the island territories are improved and expanded by the local government.
    • I don't want to see your fleet any larger than it is. Your pushing it to the economic limit with 120 warships, IMO, and in all honesty you managing to maintain half the fleet the French did in WW2 doesn't strike me as anywhere near possible. Unless half your population is starving there is no way your doing this. On top of that no way your even close to self sufficient yet, not to mention ever, Self Sufficiency is ridiculously hard to do and no nation has truly every done it successfully. -Feud
    • I honestly can't see South Africa maintaining a fleet that large. specially not with aLL THE THINGS GOING ON RIGHT NOW THERE. With Blood and Iron (talk) 17:08, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
    • But Feud, I'm not operating the same giant ships the French did. I don't have eight battleships, 80 subs, 32 destroyers. And you only counted the major ships of the French Navy, not the logistical and patrol craft they had. And even then, the French built warships that were considered "over-the-top", so their fleet is smaller, but its far more powerful than mine. Most of my fleet is made up of small ships such as landing craft, patrol boats, and frigates. You don't even know what ships I plan to build yet. Also, you have a habit of saying someone can't do something, and being proven totally wrong. South Africa is one of the few nations in the world with the capacity of self-sufficency. You have no evidence that South Africa doesn't have the capacity for it (given they did so in OTL). Even under the sanctions and a late start, South Africa experienced economic growth for forty years until the economic bubble burst of the 1980s, forcing the South Africans to end apartheid. So South Africa can achieve self-sufficency unless you can prove otherwise. I control Zimbabwe which was the breadbasket of Africa until Mugabe's agricultural reforms in the 1990s. And South Africa produces the lion's share of the world's valuable minerals. You have no evidence to support your statements because there is none. And your last statement proves my point of your "knowledge" of historical facts. The 4% of the Soviet Union's GDP came from foreign exports and imports in 1989, and that was only after the Soviets decided to open up their economy. The Soviets survived without trading with the world for more than seventy years, only collapsing when the government lost control over its own republics, not because it wasn't trading with the world. ~Viva
    • Then how about you say it as such, otherwise it just looks like you have this massive fleet on par with great powers when you haven't enumerated that probably 65% of that isn't major warships but patrol craft, etc. As for the Soviet Union, the Soviet Union was self-sufficient for a good amount of time, yes, but that's in particular due to the fact they controlled an EXTENSIVE amount of territory that puts South Africa to shame. You cannot compare to them, even if you can produce a good amount of food your still nowhere near self sufficiency yet. That takes years, and you just recently integrated South Rhodesia, which doesn't have the benefit of your years of development. Give it a few years, and lose the attitude. It's not appreciated. -Feud
    • Most of the Soviet Union hadn't been developed, and the bulk of those resources were located in Siberia, which is broke poor as of the 1940s. Though South Africa is much smaller, it still produces the vast majority of the mineral resources used by virturally every other power in the game and in OTL, and the industries are already developed, unlike the ones that have to be developed in the Soviet Union. Take out the extreme cold and difficulty maintaining equipment in Siberia, and you have a far more efficent mining industry in South Africa, which already exists as of the 1940s. And regarding agriculture, most of Southern Rhodesia's food exports have to go through South Africa to even reach the global market, so redistributing it down the line is simple. So once again, you're saying it takes years to become self-sufficent, but based on what evidence? For me, the evidence supporting my actions is already there. ~Viva
  • Argentina: Due to the economic depression, trade increases with Germany, Australia, and Japan. The Air Force forms the Air National Gendarmerie and cuts back on the aircraft in the active forces to reduce costs. Another 13,000 assault rifles are completed, as are 12 jet fighters, six for the Air Force, and six for the Navy, and ten cargo aircraft. The military begins to convert to common ammunition with the rest of PATO. With the government shake up, corruption is cut down on even more. Events in Colombia are watched with concern, although the government takes a policy of nonintervention. Oil is struck in the northern provinces, so to keep enough domestic production to last, the government limits drilling. (Mil/Eco Turn)
    • Uruguay: The economy takes a slight blow from the economic depression, but doesn't drop severely. Trade with other nations picks up to account for deficits and in an attempt to balance the budget, the government begins to lay off workers in unneeded fields, putting them to work in shipyards, agriculture, and power. The government looks to build hydroelectric dams on the various rivers around the nation. (Eco/Infra Turn)
    • Paraguay: Fifteen light tanks are acquired in the beginning of the modernization of the military. The economy take a slight downturn due to the economic crisis. To prevent a run on the banks, the government orders the banks to close for a few days to help stabilize. Trade with Chile and Brazil picks up, and the government looks to build an inland port for the nation. (Mil/Eco Turn)
    • ​Daes, I'm pretty sure we agreed to no integration of continental nations, only former colonies. -Feud
    • OK. -Dae
  • German Reich: In the second national elections since the restoration of democracy, the Social-democrats lose a little bit of the support they had gained in the aftermath of the war as nationalist sentiments rise up as a result of recent events with the Americans. Realizing that a firmer hand will be needed to keep civil order in Berlin and other right wing strongholds, the Centre Party, and Conservative Party scrap a bill which would have allowed American troops to be stationed on German soil . the borders with France and the USSR remain heavily fortified as German troops are stationed all the way along these borders. The G 06 becomes the standard rifle of the Wehrmacht with it having fully replaced the semi-automatic and bolt action rifles of the war with France and Russia. more Panzer V and APC's roll off the production and the performance of the tank is unmatched on continental Europe. Development of the new jet fighters continues and new bombers begins. The Germans develop a new decryption machine known as the puzzlebox to fool other European powers (similar to the OTL British machine used to break the enigma machine, in other words the first computer), Seeing that they lack a proper intelligence service the German military formally create the Military Counter-Intelligence Service (MAD), and the Federal Intelligence Agency (BND), The Puzzle box is placed under their management. All other projects are placed under heavy security clearance as the government hopes to keep their technological advantage on the continent. Rocket development continues with the development of the V-3 rocket, the new design has better accuracy. The government taking a moderate interest in the talks about a space program decide to invest in the project though these plans are put on hold for a few years as reconstruction of the Rhine continues. The Rhineland is slowly starting to return to its pre-war conditions with the large factories of Essen and other towns restored and expanding their activities and other companies expanding into the area as well. Silesia's industrial sector continues to expand at an amazing rate, Germany offers Prague a free trade agreement once more (mod response, please). Four more nukes are made and placed in undisclosed bunkers for protection and secrecy. The Posen-Prussia District is integrated into the Reich as the provinces of Posen and Greater Prussia with West Prussia being added to East Prussia. All those living in the area are giving residency with all those desiring German citizenship being required to swear allegiance to the fatherland and to the Kaiser. All those of German blood do it in a heartbeat while only a few Poles do so, the vast majority remain in passive resistance to their new status, At this point due to the mass expulsion of Poles from the area only about 30% of the population is Polish while the vast majority are German who have fled from Eastern Europe. Development of infrastructure in the area continues. The N 20 jet proves a capable machine but the German high command continues to seek a better design. Berlin declares that the Iron Rhine is officially reopened spanning from Rotterdam and Antwerp, to the Ruhr, Breslau, and Vienna making it the one of the largest railways in Europe. Trade in the area and transportation of goods increases drastically with the reopening of the Iron Rhine. 
  • Ecuador: Ecuador, since we are not yet industrialized, do not take as hard of a hit from the Depression. We ask to trade with Japan and Australia, and to form the Pacific Trade Organization. Ecuador improves the infrastructure in Guayaquil, and more importantly improves the economy. We want to move away from trade with South America, asall nearby countries are either unfriendly or in bad economic shape, and we switch our focus to Asia and Oceania.
  • Bulgaria: The government thanks German help. The protests however, have largely surrounded the capital and a siege of Sofia begins by the rebels which have however, been suppressed elsewhere. Army is called to arms, and army size reaches 120K. Protest size is 600,000, and the protest turns into a civil war
    • Bulgarian Secret Dip: Thanks for the help, Germany, I would have fallen sooner had those panzers not entered my border.
  • (I would also like an algo please Hello, Caesar here. If you want to talk, )
  • USGN: Mil and eco. Support for the government in Flanders has risen over the last years. The ports of Rotterdam and Antwerpen flourish, and so does the economy. PATO membership makes for even more support. After some time of debating it, we officially recognize Canada as the successor of the United Kingdom, while we recognize the PUB as a completely different state. The Panzer V is the official tank of the Dutch army
  • Batavia: Mil and eco.
  • Dominion of Britannica: The People's Union of Britain is reformed into the Dominion of Britannica, under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Tony Reacher. Work immediately goes towards reforming the defunct British military. In a wildly popular move, Reacher reaches (LOL) out to the British royal family, welcoming them back into the nation with open arms. Negotiations begin with the Canadian government on bringing them back to Buckingham Palace. The British government also requests that Canada return the portion of the Royal Navy that fled to Canada in the wake of the Communist revolution, as well as Gibraltar. Canada may do as they wish with Hong Kong and Diego Garcia. Work begins on an aircraft carrier immediately, and training focuses on paratroopers and other airborne infantry.
  • Canada, don't do it! It's a trap. ~ America
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary many years ago. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan, and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur. The Soviets lock down the development of nuclear weapons and material, and the KGB track down and kill the man responsible, although they are too late to prevent his information from spreading. Harsher and more effective measures are taken to crack down on members of the government and military from leaking weapons or information that is classified. Some troops are sent to Cambodia to aid in their endeavors and to help spread Communism in the region.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • In the United States, there is some degree of economic failure. However, America quickly begins to recover from the hit thanks to NAFTA and PATO. Meanwhile, the decision is made to support the Scottish rebels, as the current British regime appears to be no better than the previous one. Also, the Hellenic Freedom Army continues to be supplied in secret. Members of the True Americans group continue to be decried as Communists. Senator Joe McCarthy, in another crazy turn of events, presents a list of ten people, three of which are famous personalities, that he accuses of being the leadership of the True Americans and Communist sympathizers. A number of True American rallies and protests are attacked by other people who are sane and not Communist idiots. Meanwhile, America manages to go through one whole year without any lynchings of African Americans. Speaking of, black soldiers occupying Mexico and other lands begin to call for equal treatment and payment the army, setting the stage for the future civil rights movement. (Late 50s ish.) The US also begins research and tests concerning the potential of transoceanic missiles. Also, the research on hydrogen bombs continues. America does more stuff with all that fancy rockets and plane stuff, and submarines and boats and whatnot. Aircraft carriers! Space!
    • American military occupation of Mexico continues as the conspirators begin to be rounded up and the loyalists are slowly restored to power. Preparations for free and open elections are made and Mexico's economy actually improves thanks to improved economic relations with the United States.
    • In Haiti, the standard of living increases, but then the economy takes a downswing due to late entry into NAFTA. However, it slowly begins to improve later on. Nothing of note occurs in Haiti but the Dominican Republic has officially rejected Haiti's diplomatic proposals.

The Republic of Colombia is renamed to the Democratic People’s Republic of Colombia as the workers rise up and seize control of the government via the Communist Party of Colombia. The new government distances itself from the United States and Brazil and reaches out to the Soviet Union for aid and assistance in rebuilding in return for cheap oil.

Cambodia continues to fight Thailand. Also, a Khmer Rouge breakaway declares the creation of the People's Republic of Laos in French Laos.

Scottish rebels continue to fight for independence, taking control of Northern Scotland begining the campaign south towards Glasgow and Edinburgh. The Republic of Scotland is officially declared on 21 March. Also, Ireland invades Northern Ireland and recognizes the Republic of Scotland.

In Greece, the Hellenic Freedom Army continues to fight its own war against the Turks and the Italians. With foreign aid, they actually begin to take land back, primarily from the Turkish.

Even with foreign support, the chances of the the poorly-equipped and outnumbered HFA taking back territory are nill. Personally, I'd say it would be appreciated if an algorithm was made because I certainly doubt the HFA stands any chance against the Joint Turkish-Italian forces. By not making any algorithm and instead carrying out the war via Mod Events, you'd be trying to make something happen when it shouldn't be happening. Basically, the Greeks would be supposed to be losing but the Mod Events are making them winning. But surely, I shouldn't complain. You people have done a pretty good job at spreading Communism as well. -Rimp

In Burma, the existing government begins to suffer from internal problems. The President of Burma also clashes with the military leadership. Also, Burma is plagued by Communist troubles.

The High Court of Mods officially sends out orders to RexImperio to stop posting his turn at the top of the turn even though other people have posted before him. Put your post in its time-accurate place already.

The High Court of Mods also sends a message to LightningLynx. That money you accepted for peace against Germany was inflation money. It's basically worthless. 

"The High Court of Mods".. Couldn't have thought of a better title. -Rimp

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built. Thailand continues fighting against the invading Cambodians, and uses its full military force to do so. Thailand also asks for any help to fight against the Cambodian aggression.
  • Canada: Canada, in negotiations with the Dominion of Britannia, is willing to allow the Royal Family to return to their proper place, but King George VI is reluctant to uproot again until Britannia is politically stable. Canada is also willing to allow ships to return to Britannia due to the economic crisis that has befallen the nation, but wants to retain two aircraft carriers, several cruisers and destroyers. In domestic news, Prime Minister Bracken's minority government is already facing extreme stress in his efforts to force non-partisanship on the Federal Government that he successfully achieved in Manitoba. The worsening economy, and Liberal and CCF demands to institute massive spending projects, grip Ottawa and provincial governments who are currently saddled with the nearly impossible task to improve their local economies with almost no direction from the Federal government. By mid 1950, with the unemployment numbers inching toward 25%, the Maritime and Prairie provinces nearly bankrupt, and the rising Communist and Fascist parties gaining more and more members, Bracken suffers a massive heart attack while in the House of Commons, but after he recovers, he refuses to step down as PM, leading to yet another political crisis.
  • USGN: Mil and eco. Support for the government in Flanders has risen over the last years. The ports of Rotterdam and Antwerpen flourish, and so does the economy. PATO membership makes for even more support. The Panzer V is the official tank of the Dutch army
    • Batavia: Mil and eco.
  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural although by now, large scale development projects had been initiated. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. President Marshall Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak dies on April 10, 1950, bringing an end to his 11 Year reign as the President of Turkey. His funeral is held at Istanbul and the Premier of the Soviet Union, the King of Saudi Arabia, the Duce of Italy, the Führer of Germany, the Prime Minister of Greece and the President of Iraq are invited to his funeral. It is also announced that elections will be held on November 16th, 1950 until which point Turkey would be controlled by the Interim President, Şefik Hüsnü. 
    • ​Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Exploiting the data given by Argentina, areas used by foreign agents to fund the HFA were attacked in major assaults by the Turkish army and a large number of foreign agents are captured. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers.
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, 6 km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Republic of Iraq: With the Monarchy overthrown in a Turkish - Soviet backed coup d'état, Turkish agents along with the revolutionaries had the entire Royal family massacred. With the job done, the Revolutionaries announced their control over Iraq and soon; 30,000 Turkish soldiers were airlifted to Iraq with the help of the Revolutionaries. The soldiers were deployed to temporarily maintain control whilst power was transfered from the now dead Monarchy to the Iraqi Communist Party and other pro Soviet groups. Meanwhile, a Treaty of Peace, Friendship and Co-operation was signed between Iraq and Turkey and it was agreed that Turkey would withdraw completely from the Peoples Republic of Iraq by 3rd January 1950. Indeed, to further garner support from the masses; Turkish agents exploited religion and informed the populace that Islam would be restored to Iraq and that the Pro-British Monarchy had finally been overthrown. Moreover, well aware of Irans growing influence amongst the Shi'ite populace of Iraq; Turkey collaborated with the revolutionaries to promote Arab nationalism in order to oppose Shi'ite sectarianism and made sure to drag on the Shatt al-Arab Dispute. Finally, the Turkish troops withdraw and the independent Peoples Republic of Iraq is proclaimed. 
  • ​Belgium: Spaak looks for the interests with the Wallonian Army, but the troops still in the training for more strength and aggresive squad. Economy and military improves.
  • Ecuador: In our quest to industrialize, we continue to improve our economy and our infrastructure, especially in Guayaquil, which we hope to become a major city and international trade hub. Because of our need for trade, we ask GEACOPS, New Zealand, Australia, Chile, and China to from a Pacific Trade Organization. Expeditions continue in the Oriente, but not much is found, as we have not gone far enough east yet. Finally, we want any help and technology possible to help us industrialize.
    • Brazil Dip: We will offer industrial help to some degree if you sign the trade pact with the rest of South America and cease trying to create an undoable pacific trade sphere
    • Chinese Dip: We accept the offer to join the trade organization, our economy still rising. 
    • GEACOP Dip: We accept the offer, seeing a pacific trade organization as being benefitial
    • Ecuador Response to Brazil: We would sign a trade pact with South America, but still need tade partners in the Pacific, so we'll be staying in the Pacific Trade Organization. We remind you that this is a trade organization, not an alliance.
  • Iran: Continue to collaborate with America. Iran economy is hit by the American crisis but European market allow us to continue making profit. The Shah is assassinated and general Fasel take power claiming that the previous regime was weak, the Communists are blamed, leading to more support to Turkish Kurd and the Iraqi Kurd via the autonomous Kurdistan region. The leader of the Iraqui Kurdistan and the shiite rebels are invited to Tehran in secret via contact in Iran to discuss about forming a united front against the Sunni regime. The army and the navy is expand. An American tank is study and an Iranian tanks is develop based on this design. Ask to buy jet technology from America.
    • Just going to say that there is no 'Sunni regime'. The leadership has both Sunni and Shi'ite leaders but Shi'ite and Sunni secterianism are kind of suppressed with the use of united Arab nationalism. 
  • Brazil: With another major recession upon the nation Brazil immediately shows setbacks in nearly all its industrial sectors due to the lack of protections in place for this sort of thing. The Economic growth in general shrinks a bit as well with the Brazilian GDP showing hardly any major positive growth, with the only positive growth being due to a more well developed economy this time around. Inflations while present is not an outright major issue for Brazil as the strengthened Real has led to a much lesser inflation than previously. The Port of Santos has also had its entire city structure rebuilt now with many returning back to the city. It once again claims top shipping port on the continent and begins to offset the Depression to some degree. The Brazilian Military slows down many of its developments particularly putting its two Light carriers near completion on hold due to a slowed economy. Many military bases get lesser complements and the remaining men are used much less for less costly operations and training missions. The Brazilian Civilian aeronautics industry howevers shows major growth as aerial shipping, and civilian air traffic begins to expand significantly as the Air travel option becomes more and more viable with better and better engines. The First Civilian jetliner is also developed and this heralds the dawn of the Civilian Jet age as private coroporations are able to produce this technology for more than military purposes. The Brazilian highway program surprisingly picks up pace as many out of work from the recession take up working on it to expand it and link up various Areas. The Brazilian Pan-Atlantic Railway is finished with all of Brazil's Coastal railways linking up with what's known as the "Grand Terminus" in Rio De Janeiro. This harbors another alternative for shipping goods across the nation as much of this railway system goes to many resource rich and developed areas. Brazil's government under Ramos begins to show interest in the Colombian situation looking to add them within the Brazilian Trade group it has with the entire rest of the continent. Brazil offers major oil trade to the US to offset the lack of Colombian oil and to promote joint US-Brazilian Capitalism. The Brazilian Federal Senate authorizes the full annexation of Guyana as a state offering all the rights, liberties, and benefits guaranteed under the Brazilian constitution. With the economic depression on us, the Brazilian Navy puts away many of its submarines and destroyers to save on funding for the time being with much of the fleet running peacetime operations rather than alerted higher ops. Brazil considers the intervention in colombia to put a democratically elected government back into power.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to develop its oil and refining industries and tags along with the Brazilian offer of oil to the US in order to promote US-South American Relations. The Venezuelan people show a noticeable shift towards a more liberal status as the small military and protectionism from the government has fostered a liberal but somewhat capitalistic attitude. The Venezuelan congress does also re-vote on the multiple Brazilian Bases in Venezuela, but they vote positive for them once again. The Venezuelan population reaches 4.3 million and beginning to grow much more. The Venezeulan military begins to standardize munitions and nearly all equipment standard to Brazil for a shift into standard munitions to prevent PATO alliance complications.
    • The United States: Accepts these offers for oil.
  • China: Military and economy are improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the reintroduction of Chinese land back into the Republic.
  • Australia: Robert Menzies (Liberal) is elected Prime Minister. Infrastructure and Military are improved. The railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built. (Now the terminus is at Cocklebiddy, AU-WA)
    • Papua: Mil/Eco turn.
    • Indonesia: Mil/Eco turn.
    • Australian Dip: We accept the Ecuadorian proposal to become founding members of the Pacific Trade Organization.
  • GEACOP: All members improve military and infrastructure,  Pro-Communist sentiment grows, with many distrusting the elite . first nuclear test happens off of the coast of Korea. submarine and jet fighter program continues, being produced in mass numbers.
    • Thailand: Thailand asks the GEACOP for an alliance, and also asks for help in fighting against the invading Cambodians.
  • Switzerland's government begins passing some laws to cut back on spending to mitigate any potential economic crisis, but still stress that money needs to be spent in key areas in order to keep the nation safe and running. A referendum held in Liechtenstein and Switzerland sees enough of a minimum of support for establishing a head of state, with Franz Josef II as the leader. Plans are put forward to unite the two countries under a Greater Swiss Confederation.
  • Argentina: Trade continues to increase with European nations to offset the depression, although there is still a minor impact. Some in the government worry about a Communist Colombia, but Congress votes to remain neutral in that event. The government continues public works projects to improve living conditions for the population and ease transportation. Industrialization continues as does drilling for oil in our nation. We do not export, but use it for national consumption to cut down on the budget. Work on equipment for the nuclear weapons program is temporarily halted to prevent an economic downturn with the money being used for public spending and provide pensions to the unemployed. The military looks to potentially sell off most of the light tanks, as the medium and heavy tanks have replaced them. (Infra/Eco Turn)
    • Uruguay: Public transportation train lines are put under construction in Montevideo to give jobs to civilians and help improve the economy. Infrastructure is planned to run through Argentina and connect with Paraguay. Economic development continues, although the GDP drops. The government cancels any military orders to increase capital for public works to give people jobs and help the economy recover. (Infra/Eco Turn)
    • Paraguay: Public work projects continue with an inland port being put under construction to increase foreign trade. An airport is planned as well to handle cargo aircraft. The government looks to possibly purchase a few light tanks after the depression ends. Exploration for minerals continues around the nation to increase exports. Infrastructure continues to be connected with that of Argentina. (Infra/Eco Turn)
  • Italy: We attack Albania, sending a large portion of our troops into the small, weak, nation. We also send a smaller portion to put down the last of the rebels in Greece, who seem to be slowly dispersing.
  • German Reich: In the second national elections since the restoration of democracy, the Social-democrats lose a little bit of the support they had gained in the aftermath of the war as nationalist sentiments rise up as a result of recent events with the Americans. Realizing that a firmer hand will be needed to keep civil order in Berlin and other right wing strongholds, the Centre Party, and Conservative Party scrap a bill which would have allowed American troops to be stationed on German soil . the borders with France and the USSR remain heavily fortified as German troops are stationed all the way along these borders. The G 06 becomes the standard rifle of the Wermacht with it having fully replaced the semi-automatic and bolt action rifles of the war with France and Russia, though a new rifle design is in the making. More Panzer V and APC's roll off the production and the performance of the tank is unmatched on continental Europe. Development of the new jet fighters continues and new bombers begins. The Germans develop a new decryption machine known as the puzzlebox to fool other European powers (similar to the OTL British machine used to break the enigma machine, in other words the first computer), Seeing that they lack a proper intelligence service the German military formally create the Military Counter-Intelligence Service (MAD), and the Federal Intelligence Agency (BND), The Puzzle box is placed under their management. All other projects are placed under heavy security clearance as the government hopes to keep their technological advantage on the continent. Rocket development continues with the development of the V-3 rocket, the new design has better accuracy. The government taking a moderate interest in the talks about a space program decide to invest in the project though these plans are put on hold for a few years as reconstruction of the Rhine continues. The Rhineland is slowly starting to return to its pre-war conditions with the large factories of Essen and other towns restored and expanding their activities and other companies expanding into the area as well. Silesia's industrial sector continues to expand at an amazing rate, Germany offers Prague a free trade agreement once more (mod response, please). Four more nukes are made and placed in undisclosed bunkers for protection and secrecy. The Posen-Prussia District is integrated into the Reich as the provinces of Posen and Greater Prussia with West Prussia being added to East Prussia. All those living in the area are giving residency with all those desiring German citizenship being required to swear allegiance to the fatherland and to the Kaiser. All those of German blood do it in a heartbeat while only a few Poles do so, the vast majority remain in passive resistance to their new status, At this point due to the mass expulsion of Poles from the area only about 30% of the population is Polish while the vast majority are German who have fled from Eastern Europe. Development of infrastructure in the area continues. The N 20 jet proves a capable machine but the German high command continues to seek a better design. Berlin declares that the Iron Rhine is officially reopened spanning from Rotterdam and Antwerp, to the Ruhr, Breslau and Vienna making it the one of the largest railways in Europe. Trade in the area and transportation of goods increases drastically with the reopening of the Iron Rhine. 
  • Dominion of Britannica: The British government accepts the Canadian offer, taking back four aircraft carriers, nineteen cruisers, fifty one destroyers, fourteen submarines, ten battleships, and nine patrol/escourt ships. Construction begins on another fleet carrier, as well as five destroyers and six cruisers. The jobs generated from the rebuilding of the British fleet rejuvenates the economy, increasing the GDP by 8%. Various construction projects a la FDR's New Deal take place across the nation, and government funds are liberally handed out to farmers and factories to reduce the catastrophic economic effects of collectivism and Communist command economy. Meanwhile, Reacher denounces the Scottish and Irish declarations of independence, and sends the newly taken back Dominion Navy to blockade Scotland. Scotland, being completely dependent on English food for survival, is expected to fold within the six months. More training goes towards paratroopers and other special forces. The Joint Special Operations Command, JSOC, is formed to plan joint operations between all branches of the military. Furthermore, all interior security departments are reorganized into the Interior Security Bureau, otherwise known as the ISB. Military intelligence is also reorganized into Department of Special Air/Land Operations, known as DeSpAir Ops. In other news, Supreme Chancellor Reacher has a son, little John Reacher.
    • With the Britannic blockade of Scotland, the United States makes the decision to airlift food and other supplies into Scotland in order to help the people achieve their independence. All other PATO members are called on to help these people in their noble cause.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary many years ago. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • South Africa: President Jan Smuts dies at the age of 80 from a massive heart attack while at his home in Irene, just outside of Johannesburg. More than half a million South Africans come out to view Smuts' funeral procession, along with members of the African National Congress, who achieved political power through the actions of Smuts following 1948. The Parliament of South Africa formally declares Deputy President Albert Lutuli, the next President of South Africa, making him the nation's first black head of state. Millions of Africans celebrate the occasion, while tens of thousands of Afrikaners remain bitter at the change in leadership. Some white South Africans, such as D.F. Malan, flee the nation fearing prosecution for their actions against black Africans, moving to Europe where they hope to remain safe from potential retribution. Luluti states that the 1954 elections will still take place, stating that he will ensure black Africans are still able to vote in 1954. President Luluti also states that he plans to share South African prosperity and modernity with the rest of Africa, and calls up ANC members throughout Africa to do their part in assisting Africans anywhere they are in gaining an education and political power. Also, in light of the new change in government, Luluti commissions the design of a new flag and coat of arms, so as to represent the new national government and its changes in the past decades. Moves toward self-sufficiency continue. With the coal liquefaction plants up and running, oil supplies are no longer an issue for the government. However, focus on increasing agricultural production in Zimbabwe become a priority for the new Luluti administration. The South African population increases by 6.3%, while the in the rest of the union, the growth is 5-7%, much of the growth thanks to the years of government education on safe sex to avoid sexually-transmitted diseases, as well as the increase in medical care provided to expecting mothers and newborn children, increasing the survival rate of South Africans following childbirth. The economy shows signs of recovery, with a 4.2% growth in the opening months of the year. Many economist credit this to the government's attempts to get black Africans into the economy on par with white South Africans. Currently, the average black African makes 35% of what a white South African makes in a year. The government hopes to have that number at 70% by 1960, and then 100% by 1965. The University of Cape Town completes 50% of its project, with most of the equipment put in place, and on the testing and evaluation of the results left to be done. Military drills throughout the nation continues, with focus on potential invasion along the Western Cape serving as the basis of the national military forces. The highways in South Africa continue to expand, with more than 15,000 km of highway constructed throughout South Africa. Additional military equipment is shipped off to China, with several hundred military instructors sent off as well to help train the Chinese personnel in how to use South African military equipment and combat tactics.
    • Zimbabwe: The Zimbabwean government focuses on integrating its economy with that of South Africa's, to help with the self-sufficiency programs. Industrial farming equipment arrives from South Africa to assist in expanding agricultural output in Zimbabwe. White farmers are encouraged to trained black farmers entering into the farming sector in how to use the more sophisticated equipment. In exchange for their assistance, the government has established a fund to pay any white farmers for their work in training the black farmers. The military continues to expand and sharpen its skills.
    • Namibia: The Namibian government continues to support economic growth and development, along with the development of major towns outside of Windhoek and Walvis Bay. The mining industry prospers under such support, and the expansion of businesses related to supporting these industries becomes a major priority for businessmen residing in Namibia.
    • Southern Angola: Southern Angola expands its literacy program into the countryside of the nation, while supporting the construction of colleges in the major cities and the capital of Namibe. Railway expansion continues, and the highways of South Africa finally make their way up and into southern Angola, allowing for the population to freely travel across their nation without the need for trains. The ADF continues its combat drills outside of Namibe along the northern border.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: Industrial expansion in Lesotho and Swaziland continue under the supervision of the South African government. The defense forces of the two states are expanded in their combat capabilities, allowing the union states to assist in the wider protection of the Union of South Africa.
    • South African Island Territories: The economy and the industries of the island territories are improved and expanded by the local government.
  • France: The current active military stands at roughly two million active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves at a full 1.5 million. The AMX 13's first prototype is being built as we speak to role out the next generation of tanks. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. With the recent events in Indochina we see fit to leave as we do not have the full capabilities to hold those colonies. In secret we actively destroy any resources and or industry that could be used against us in the future before we begin leaving the Khmer to rot in Indochina. (Military/Economy turn)
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan, and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur. The Soviets lock down the development of nuclear weapons and material, and the KGB track down and kill the man responsible, although they are too late to prevent his information from spreading. Harsher and more effective measures are taken to crack down on members of the government and military from leaking weapons or information that is classified. Some troops are sent to Cambodia to aid in their endeavors and to help spread Communism in the region.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • The United States continues to send aid to the rebels in Greece. Meanwhile, the Republic of Scotland is officially recognized as an independent nation. The U.S. also continues to recover from the small recession of last year. However, the numerous economic crises are associated with the Republican presidency and Congress, and many expect the Democrats to seize control of one or both houses of Congress this year. Research into the hydrogen bomb and other ways of advancing nuclear technology continues. Also, research into nuclear power for ships, submarines, and other vehicles continues. A new aircraft carrier is completed and begins service. Senator Joseph McCarthy also continues to denounce known True Americans as Communist and Soviet sympathizers. Walt Disney releases his 12th animated film, Cinderella. The creation of the element Californium is announced. Few other things of note happen in the United States.
    • The American military occupation of Mexico begins to end. As the military begins to depart, new leaders are elected across Mexico. Meanwhile, Mexico builds new infrastructure with American aid.
    • The Republic of Haiti improves its infrastructure and builds up its military. Haiti begins to develop its economy around the tourism industry.

AvA(Res)1950.5

With foreign aid, Scotland survives the Britannic blockade. All of Scotland comes under the control of the Republic, although fighting along the border with Britannica continues.

Laos and Cambodia continue war with Thailand. Communists inside Thailand rise up against the government and fight for a Communist Thailand.

The Hellenic Freedom Army moves its focus to the Italian controlled region of Greece. They take control of Thessaloniki and the surrounding area. New groups of rebels also appear in Crete.

  • OK, seriously you need to make an algorithm. Right now, you're just dragging on a war between a poorly-equipped and outnumbered Greek rebel army against an Italian and Turkish army. And well aware that the Greeks would lose if an algorithm was made, you're making the Greeks win through Mod Events. During the start, I could stand it but now that you're making major cities of mine fall to such a pathetic little force; it's getting quite annoying. Why not make an algorithm and end it? And when the algo is to be made, it should consider the rebels from when the war started ... Not from when you turned Greece into a superpower. And in your recent map, you had the Greeks occupy all of mainland Greece as well the Aegean Sea islands. Why? Because you felt so ... And then you say that Pita is the one that is Godmodding and a Mod Vote should take place to remove Pita ...
  • I'm with Rex on this one, there should be an algo for this. Crossing it out for now.
  • First of all, Greece is in a lighter version of the Italian color (and Thrace in a lighter version of the Turkish color). This is how nations controlled by other nations are depicted. See Finland, Xinjiang, Mexico, Venezuela, and Manchuria. Second of all, what makes you think this is a "poorly-equipped" and "pathetic little" force? These are nationalists fighting for the freedom of their country from foreign oppressors. You think this is ten people with bombs? This is a serious threat to both of your grips on your parts of the nation. This is a full fledged revolution and you can't just pretend like it doesn't exist. They most certainly can take cities and they most certainly can fight you. Also, they are receiving foreign aid whereas you are not. How can you, Turkey and Italy, hope to maintain control over a nation with an incredibly different culture that doesn't even remotely speak either of your languages? Greece has hated Turkey for ages, they declared their independence from Turkey and long hoped to retake Constantinople and other lands from Turkey (Megali Idea). Suddenly Turkey shows up and conquers them? Fighting everywhere.
  • A revolution mere years after Greece's military force was decimated is impossible. Most people aren't up to the idea of facing an enemy right next to them that just destroyed the men they regarded as the best of the best and the protectors of their nation. I don't know if you have difficulty grasping how politics and conflicts work, but the Greeks aren't going to magically take over land from a much more powerful and superior foe that lives right next door to them. Katanga fought two wars for its independene against Zaire, lost both, and never again sought independence. Never mind the fact that most revolutions fail without foreign assistance (note that every major partisan movement in Nazi Germany either failed or was completely destroyed within a matter of days, with the Norwegian movement being the longest at two weeks), which the HFA lacks, but also consider the idea that many Greeks don't want to fight. Rather than restart a war that they lost just ten years ago, many Greeks would much rather focus on providing for their families instead of fight a war not even the men trained to fight couldn't win. ~Viva
  • Every partisan movement in Nazi Germany failed? Seriously? That's patently false. The Yugoslavs, Poles, Russians, and French all had long-lasting, fairly effective resistance movements which did serious damage. The Greeks easily could, too.
  • In terms of surviving? Oh yes. But a sustained conflict against a vastly superior foe and taking land? Nope. The Poles tried to retake Warsaw, and it only saw the Polish partisan movement nearly wiped out, and most of Warsaw leveled by the Germans as punishment. The Greeks just lost a war; any further combat between the HFA and the Turkish and Italian militaries will be small-scale and disruptive. Taking land is out of the question. ~Viva

In Burma, the military overthrows the government of Thakin Nu. However, their grip on the country is tenuous at best and is not expected to last long.

Kurdish rebels begins to fight against the Communist government of Iraq.

The Communist regime in Colombia announces its vision for a great and powerful Gran Colombia again. War is declared against Ecuador.

In the French Mandate of Syria and Lebanon, Syria and Lebanon declare independence as two states. France, Italy, and other colonial powers need to start decolonization.

  • Panama: Military buildup and economic expansion begins. We begin to establish defenses around the Panama-Colombian Border, fearing the neighboring nation - due to recent events in Ecuador. We begin to develop our economy around the maritime industry with the Panama Canal, but unfortunately, due to American ownership, little progress is made. As a result, we request to purchase the Panama Canal for 23 million USD, and in exchange, the Americans may establish additional military bases in the region, in order to help contain the Colombian threat.
    • The United States refuses to sell the Canal but is willing to provide protection against Colombia.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built. Thailand continues fighting against the invading Cambodians and Laotians, and uses its full military force to do so, and begins to deal with the Communist rebels within the nation. Thailand asks GEACOP again for an alliance for an alliance and to help fight against the Communists that are plaguing Thailand and deal with Laos and Cambodia.
    • German Secret Dip: The German embassy to Bangkok is giving instructions to approach the Thai government with an offer to supply them with arms and advisors to help combat Communist forces. 
    • Thailand Secret Diplomacy: Thailand agrees and accepts the German offer.
  • Guatemala completes its Ten-Year Plan, which has hugely modernized the country, mainly using free corvee labour. The country now seeks to take a more significant role in international affairs. Seeing that Brazil and the United States have both declared war on Colombia, Guatemala retracts its offer of an alliance and instead declares war on Colombia in support of Brazil.
  • German Reich: The Rhineland has finally returned to its pre-war after half a decade of reconstruction. (need a mod to change our industry level to 4), and with many new companies and factories popping up and the Iron Rhine fueling economic and industrial growth the Rhine is set to expand to heights never seen before. The Bundeswagen becomes an icon of the new Germany with the company rapidly expanding and selling large volumes of cost effective and realiable cars. The Bundeswagen 1950 gaining the nickname of car of a generation. Large numbers of the Panzer V are now being exported to Germany's asian and American trading partners, along with the widespread distribution of the G 06 rifle. Development of several new projects continue, most prominent the secret development of the Me Drachen project to become the German second generation fighter jet (based on the OTL Saab dracken), the development of the G3 assault rifle, and the early stages of a prototype for the Panzer Leopard based on recommended improvements proposed by the German military for the Panzer V. Socially and politically the Reich has stabilized as democratic practices slowly return to Germany after more then decade of hybrid regimes. The final censorship laws, and public order laws are voided by the Reichstag, despite this many cities like Berlin, Munich, and Konigsberg remain conservative strongholds in the political spectrum while Vienna, and Munich grow as centres of left wing political groups aimed at promoting social equality and ending Germany's militant nature. Despite their tendency to support socialism all the left wing parties in Germany denounce the Soviet Union and Communism in favor of social democracy and a so called third way between Communism and capitalism. Germany officially announces to the world its intentions to reach Space and fulfill "Humanity's Destiny" after ardent talks with the German scientific community. Plans to send an animal into space within the next five years are made. The V-3 rocket is used as a prototype for future rocket designs and as the foundation for the German space program . An offshot of this program is the Ballistic missile program aimed at developing a rocket capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, (im only just starting to develop this so its only a theory right now). Nuclear research continues as the government becomes interested in developing an even deadlier bomb then it currently possess based on the theoretical research of fusion or hydrogen bombs. Research and development of this weapon begins in top secret with Berlin keeping it a secret from all even their American and European allies. Development of new jet bombers and stealth fighters begin to replace the aging ones. The Puzzlebox is used as the foundation for the development of a machine capable of processing large amounts of information (1950s computers though they are still being developed so yeah not there yet XD). Medical research continues in depth as new medical advances occur daily in the ever changing world. Developing of stronger explosives begin. Research into applying nuclear energy for civilian purposes begin as nuclear power is seen as a huge possibility for improving Germany's energy production. Entertainment continues to evolve as Jazz and cabaret grow in popularity throughout Germany's major cities as the so called lost era continues. American cinema starts to have an increasing influence on German films. Accommodation and integration of Posen and Greater Prussia continue, as more Germans continue to trickle into the province from the East. Germany continues to support the Bulgarian Monarchy and offers military nd financial support to all European countries combating Communist insurgencies. In secret Germany approaches Japan and China about the possibility of forming a Eurasian alliance to contain and eventually roll back Communism across the old world. In an effort to gain influence and a new ally in the Middle East Germany extends a hand of friendship to Syria offering them arms and a trade agreement along with formal recognition as a free and independent state (mod, please respond). Germany offers Czechoslovakia a Defence pact in the face of Communist expansion in the east. (again mods, please respond). Naval expansion begins after several years of being put off as the government is now in a position where it can improve its naval strength, Efforts to develop modern battle cruisers and destroyers begin as old battleships are scuttled less focus is placed on U-boats and more money is placed in developing a navy capable of defending Germany's coasts and its trade routes in the North Sea and the North Atlantic, German aspirations to develop a Green water Navy are made known to better combat the Blue water capabilities of nations like France. In the East the so called Teutonic Line is developed as a series of fortifications and aerial bases to better defend against any possible Soviet aggression. Germany denounces the Colombian invasion of Ecuador and offers diplomatic support to the South American republic in its time of need. 
    • Mod Response: Syria and Czechoslovakia both accept.
    • Sorry, just a small comment the map is incorrect you separate Posen and Prussia from Germany as if they were separate administration they have been fully integrated into Germany now and the population is German anyway, so yeah. With Blood and Iron (talk) 11:25, March 22, 2015 (UTC)
    • Ethiopian Dip : WE request an alliance along with financial support.
  • Brazil: Horrified by the invasion of Ecuador by Colombia, the Brazilian Federal congress, encouraged by the Previously issues Vargas doctrine which has never been truly tested, an almost complete majority of votes go to a declaration of War against Colombia. The Brazilian military immediately mobilizes its various Amazon divisions for a quick and lethal first strike. With the various moderate military infrastructure built in the Amazons the Brazilian forces look to hold at the border and prevent incursions. The Brazilian navy, however, sees the major action with a Conglomerated force of 50,000 Marines brought from Guatemala, Venezuela, and Brazil proper. This is named Operation Indepênćia and the Brazilian navy consisting of the Battleships Rio Grande Do Sul, and Rio De Janeiro, followed by the Fleet Carriers Dom Pedro II and the San Salvaçao as well as nearly 25 destroyers, five cruisers, three frigates, and half of the existing submarine fleet. This spurs on some sort of new economic Drive in Brazil as increased government spending in anticipation of a potentially long war. The Operation commences shortly after the Fleet gets into positions just a few months after the full on war declaration. Brazil's people show some moderate support for the war, but others are concerned about the possible backlash of such a war. The attack, however, is a ruse and a large force of nearly 300,000 Brazilian soldiers floods over the Venezuelan Border to essentially leave an unopposed amphibious invasion of Colombia. The Brazilians do the best they can to implement their shock strike doctrine but are surprised to find IFV's and Lighter Tanks leading the charge while the Heavy tanks have been providing Fire support. The Brazilian air force also distinguishes itself as it begins to dominate the Colombian skies. With the War Breaking out the Brazilian economy suffering from previous issues with the burning of santos and other recession related issues, shows notable economic improvement with the war jumping up Government spending into many sectors and industries which in turn increases output towards these. The economic output from this begins to jump-start the Brazilian economy in a much better position as industry and work force beging to accelerate again. The Brazilian navy finishes the Light Carriers, Riachuelo and Bahia. working the number of Brazilian light carriers to four. The Brazilian air force continues development of its Jet aircraft adding multiple numbers of the F-108 Falchions to the main fighter fleet. This becomes the workhorse of the Brazilian air force in Colombia with it dominating the skies in many locations. Brazil officially requests to establish a naval base in Valparaiso Chile.
    • ​Venezuela: Shocked by the invasion of Ecuador by Colombian forces, Venezuela condemns the action and declares war as well but sends no troops. The War declaration due to Venezuelan history with Colombia sees a huge amount of support from the populace and the Venezuelans show even greater support now to the Brazilian government for such a decisive action on what obviously could be a contentious issue. The Brazilian military is allowed full access through Venezuela and is deployed in colombia. Many Venezuelans are amazed at the size of forces sent to Colombia realizing this is only a fraction of Brazil's potential strength and that the nation itself easily could field a few million troops outpacing the rest of the continents nations with relative ease. The Venezuelan commodities and oil industries continue to expand moderately especially with oil being needed for the operations in Colombia. 
  • Ecuador: We begin by improving the military and infrastructure. We institute a draft, as the war is threatening our existence. We call on the countries of South America to declare war on Colombia, in order to stop their cause before it's too late. We ask to purchase supplies (weapons, aircraft, tanks, ships) from France and Argentina. We send all of the forces we can to the border with Colombia, and we specifically will only defend the border, not invade Colombia. Expeditions in the Oriente cease, and mainly those explorers make maps for military use against the Colombian forces. We consider selling the Galapagos to Brazil or the USA in order to help them protect us against Colombia. We expect America to get involved as they want to restrict the spread of Communism and protect the Panama Canal, oil from Venezuela, and holdings in the Caribbean.
    • The United States does not seek to buy the Galapagos, but is willing to aid Ecuador if Ecuador allows America to station troops and ships in the islands as a precaution.
    • Ecuador: Agrees and is even willing to let the USA build a naval base on the Galapagos.
    • The United States accepts these terms and sends aid in the form of marines and the US Navy also blockades the coast of Colombia.
  • Dominion of Britannica: With industry back to pre-revolution levels, focus goes back to the military. 1200 Centurion Mk1 tanks are produced along with 550 new F-91 Reckoner swept-wing fighters. Work continues on jet fighters and radar technology. The blockade of Scotland continues, and the airlift efforts of America are not anticipated to be enough to feed the entire population. The electricity is also cut as paratroopers, in the first deployment of DeSpAir Ops, knocks out various key power plants throughout Scotland. British troops begin to mass near the Scottish border in anticipation of a coming conflict over Scotland. Anti-aircraft defenses are beefed up near the coasts, and new radar stations are built on the farthest islands. The DNS Reacher, Gargantua, and Veronica are deployed near the western coast while DNS Imperator, Kingsman, and Edinburg are deployed near the eastern and northern coasts of Scotland. F-91 Reckoners make their debut as they patrol Scottish airspace. Meanwhile, troops armed with new L1A1 Self-Loading Rifles are mobilized throughout the cities to prepare for any coming attack. The Dominion Navy is also expanded with the addition of twelve submarines, three destroyers, and one cruiser. The Dominion Marine Corps is expanded to 350,000 serviceman and the Dominion Ground Army is enlarged to just over a million active soldiers and four million in reserve. Malay is also granted independence, although close ties are kept with the nation. 50,000 British troops stationed in Malay return to Britannica to help bolster defenses. Plans are made to move away from colonies in Africa and in the Pacific and focus instead on Britannica proper. Nuclear weapons continue to be developed under Operation Tropic Thunder. Missile and rocket technology continues to be developed, with several tests of Helios-1 missiles to be conducted next year. Meanwhile, requests are made to Canada and Turkey about the return of Gibraltar and Cyprus to Britannica. In terms of the economy, the Britannic Pound undergoes minor deflation as the Department of the Treasury starts printing less money than usual. One pound is now worth 2.9 US dollars.
    • The United States issues sanctions against Britannica and condemns it as worse than the Communist regime.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: We reject the offer.
    • Canadian Diplomacy: Canada refuses to turn over Gibraltar, and King George VI gives a speech denouncing the fighting between Scotland and Britannia.
  • Republic of Turkey: Mustafa Fevzi Çakmak, the Second President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural although by now, large scale development projects had been initiated. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. Elections are delayed a bit.
    • ​Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Exploiting the data given by Argentina, areas used by foreign agents to fund the HFA were attacked in major assaults by the Turkish army and a large number of foreign agents are captured.
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers.
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, six km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
  • Australia: Infrastructure and Military are improved. The railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built. (Now the terminus is at Balladonia, AU-WA)
    • Papua: Mil/Inf turn.
    • Indonesia: Mil/Inf turn.
  • Belgium: For a lack of conspiracy with Flanders, Spaak looks for an access to the sea. Not only that, he's frustrated, but the thing he will improve for more ships. With our Kongo, just being sold to Spain.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 80,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer.
    • Kingdom of Greater Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. Improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. With Aden now under the  Yemeni government, the nation celebrates. The Capital is relocated to Aden, and efforts to fix the damage caused by the war begin.
    • Kingdom of Kuwait: Saudi Military occupation continues, projected to end sometime next year. The Nation sees an economic growth, using the large amount of oil in the region to sell off to foreign powers.
    • Ethiopian Dip: WE request an alliance between two monarchs
  • Argentina: The military acquires another 18,000 assault rifles. Work on the nuclear weapons program restarts. Trade increase with other nations, and the economy begins to slightly improve for the nation. Rail lines with Paraguay are completed and roadways are beginning to be connected. The rail lines in Buenos Aires are completed. Tourism begins to increase as people from the United States, Europe and Canada come to Argentinean beaches because of the cheap hotels compared to other nations. Hotels are planned for Buenos Aires. Several hydroelectric dams are put under construction on the various rivers. (Eco/Infra Turn)
    • Uruguay: Work in Montevideo continues. (Infra/Eco Turn)
    • Paraguay: Infrastructure development continues. (Infra/Eco Turn)
    • Ecuador Dip: We urge Argentina to declare war on Colombia or at least send us military supplies.
  • USGN: Mil and eco. Support for the government in Flanders has risen over the last years. The ports of Rotterdam and Antwerpen flourish, and so does the economy. PATO membership makes for even more support. The Panzer V is the official tank of the Dutch army
    • Batavia: Mil and eco.
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan, and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur. The Soviets lock down the development of nuclear weapons and material, and the KGB track down and kill the man responsible, although they are too late to prevent his information from spreading. Harsher and more effective measures are taken to crack down on members of the government and military from leaking weapons or information that is classified. Some troops are sent to Cambodia to aid in their endeavours and to help spread Communism in the region.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • Canada: A vote of non-confidence over the economic handling of the 1949 Depression, supported by Eastern Progressive Conservatives, who have split from the Western Canadian interest Conservatives led by Bracken and formed the Canada Party, Liberals, the CCF and Communist parties, forces Prime Minister John Bracken to call a new election. The split Conservative vote results in Bracken's defeat, and Liberal leader St Laurent becomes PM of a Liberal minority government, with support from the CCF and the Canada Party, establish a National Unity Coalition, and immediately institutes American New Deal like policies to try to save the economy. The Canada First Party and Communists have gained many seats in the House of Commons, raising concerns of either a Fascist or a Communist Party gaining power in Canada. The navy remains mostly mothballed, and the army and air force are still at half strength. Canada declines Britannia's offer to return Gibraltar at this current time.
  • France: The current active military stands at roughly 2,500,000 active soldiers, with a great reserve of built tanks, various armaments, aircraft, and naval vessels. With the reserves at a full two million. The AMX 13 begins to roll out of factories to replace the older models of tanks and usher in a new era of tanks. The right leaning politicians continue to hold a firm hold on the political scene in France, as the Soviets are still a great beast to watch, and rumors of Communism growing amongst the British. We plan on using the monetary gains from the Germans to build up our industry, improve our infrastructure, and update our military. Along with our upgrades to our nation we plan on using the monetary gains to begin development into nuclear research with Frédéric Joliot-Curie at the forefront, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique is a joint funded government and political program. The project is expected to be finished by the end of the year or early 1951. Converting nuclear energy into a weapon in counter of the Germans is one of the main priorities of the project. We continue to have positive relations to our trade partners and allies, and try to rebuild broken relations caused by the war. We are also willing to sell the excess equipment, armaments, armor, navy vessels, and aircraft manufactured during the war. We begin the process of decolonization of our Africa holdings, but we do try to help them build effective governments to run their countries. (Military/Economy turn)
    • Ecuador Dip: We ask to buy aircraft and tanks for our war effort. We would actually prefer to take it as a loan as we are currently at war.
    • You aint got no monetary gains. It was all inflation money. Also no way you get an army that big
  • Bulgaria: The rebels have been suppressed and the economy is severely weakened. The leader has been executed and de-communification has begun. First by taking down central banks, and then lowering taxes to 15%. Despite this, unemployment is at 17% officially sending Bulgaria into a depression. However, people realize that they get more money by working harder. Federal incentives to get people to work are attempted and techs are now OTL 1938 USA techs, and the first battleship is in the rails. The new currency is put in. It is known as the Bulgarian Nomisma, bringing back the dead Byzantine currency. Prices are set. Worth 22 dollars (2015 USD) (What the currency is Real NOT fake gold and silver.) However, Most people only have one or two nomismas in Bulgaria and the leader has 47K nomismas. The total economy is 1.101 Billion nomismas, but we have a debt of 1.1 Billion nomismas (Mostly to Germany) and we begin paying the pieces of Silver and Gold. This will turn Bulgaria into a third world nation for some time. and we ask Germany for an alliance.
    • Bulgarian Secret Dip: In exchange for 20,000 pieces of gold, we offer to help the independence movement of Greece
    • German Dip: Berlin offers to shoulder a portion of Bulgaria's debt in exchange for large trading and economic rights within Bulgaria. Germany also agrees to the allaince in exchange for the Bulgarians agreeing to help fortify their Northern Border and allowing Germany to build a large railway, transportation and pipelines through Bulgaria, a project which could provide work for tens of thousands of Bulgarians in the areas where these projects would be built.
  • Ethiopia: We begin construction of our half tracks with their 88 mm guns instead of tanks because they are cheap and effective. We begin construction of ten airplanes for commercial use and ten for military use. We begin building our first destroyer naming it the Selassie after the king of kings himself. We would like to build an alliance with a great power of Europe.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary many years ago. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • South Africa: President Lutuli continues to encourage ANC members across Africa to get into politics, and aspire toward pan-African ideals for the benefit of all Africans. The government goes so far as to sponsor ANC members living in places such as Ghana, Liberia, and Kenya seeking to achieve political success in their home countries. Using the ANC's successes in southern Africa, these politicians are able to promote ANC views and policies in their nations. The military continues its drills, and expands its reserve forces by more than 100,000 additional members. The same is encouraged in the member states of the nation. The South African government states that the economy has fully recovered, and even tells economists to expect double digit growth in the future as the government finances the growth of local businesses and industries geared toward providing the nation with local goods. Industrial growth continues, with the government voting to provide employment benefits to all workers in the factories to increase worker productivity. The University of Cape Town constructs the EDSAC, the world's first practical stored-program computer, with storage capacity for more than one thousand words and 17 bits of memory. The university states its gratefulness to the Cambridge professors who assisted with much of the work following their flight from Communist Britain, as well as the generous funding provided by the government to finance the project. The university also mentions that this will be just one of many future developments planned by staff personnel, and that more work to harness and sharpen the information gained by the computer's development will be underway. Using the remaining funds left to it, the University of Cape Town expands its research staff and constructs an addition set of buildings focusing on technological development.
    • Zimbabwe: The Zimbabwean government continues to integrate its economy with that of South Africa's, to help with the self-sufficiency programs. Industrial expansion continues, while the local government establishes a law mandating every male between the ages of 19 and 40 enter the reserve forces of Zimbabwe. The military continues to expand and sharpen its skills.
    • Namibia: The Namibian government continues to support economic growth and development, along with the development of major towns outside of Windhoek and Walvis Bay. The mining industry prospers under such support, and the expansion of businesses related to supporting these industries becomes a major priority for businessmen residing in Namibia.
    • Southern Angola: Southern Angola expands its literacy program into the countryside of the nation, while supporting the construction of colleges in the major cities and the capital of Namibe. Railway expansion continues, and the highways of South Africa finally make their way up and into southern Angola, allowing for the population to freely travel across their nation without the need for trains. The ADF continues its combat drills outside of Namibe along the northern border.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: Industrial expansion in Lesotho and Swaziland continue under the supervision of the South African government. The defense forces of the two states are expanded in their combat capabilities, allowing the union states to assist in the wider protection of the Union of South Africa.
    • South African Island Territories: The economy and the industries of the island territories are improved and expanded by the local government.
    • No way in hell you can get double digit economic growth right out of a recession. Looking at various statistics, over history I have never seen double digit growth after a recession, much less in a nation like South Africa. Totally unrealistic. -Feud
    • Uhh ... the USA after the Great Depression? - Pita
    • The Largest untouched industrial base in the world with 140 million people working it and government spending that would make modern generals crap their pants. The US spent its way out of a depression into the second world war (which arguably ended the great depression) A nation not in a global spanning war, etc, really doesn't have the same drive and justification. South Africa did not enter some huge war and start spending massively in that regard. Not to mention South Africa has 15 million people. I don't see double digit growth being possible with a relatively undereducated Black populace, and nowhere near the population he needs to engineer such a feat of economic miracle working. -Feud
  • The United States: Continues to see a recovery of its economy. The Navy is deployed to the British Isles to break the Britannic blockade of Scotland. The United States also threatens war if Britannica does not leave Scotland and recognize it as an independent nation. Meanwhile, America continues to build ships like destroyers and cruisers and all that while continuing research into nuclear power for vehicles and vessels. Research into hydrogen bombs and rocket technology continues. Prompted by Germany's decision to begin space exploration, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics is reformed into the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, an agency responsible for a civilian space program and aerospace research. The U.S. Army begins to deploy anti-aircraft cannons to protect nuclear stations and military targets. At home, the Republicans maintain their majority in both houses of Congress. The Air Force's defense capability in the United States is increased to 38 squadrons. A new Essex-class aircraft carrier is completed. Other things happen. Construction of the naval base in the Galapagos begins.
    • The military occupation of Mexico begins to end as the Army leaves. Mexico's economy improves.
    • The economy of Haiti also improves.
  • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the reintroduction of Chinese land back into the Republic.

In Syria, there is internal conflict as the French depart too fast. The Druze people seek their own nation.

In Iraq, Kurdish rebels begin to make a serious effort against the existing government and seek their own nation. They are joined by Kurds in Turkey and Iran.

  • Canada: Prime Minister St Laurent is horrified to realize that the ships that were returned to Britannia a few years ago are now being used to blockade and attack Scotland. It is decided that the rest of the Canadian Navy (two aircraft carriers, several cruisers, destroyers and subs) are to be quickly retrofitted and prepared for war, though it could take a year or more for many ships. Many of the soldiers that had been downsized before are called back up to rejoin the Army and the Air Force, and the first jet engines in Canada are developed with aid from British scientists and American aid, but it could be months or a year or more. Massive government spending to improve the military to face the lying, cheating Republic of Britannia and stand by Canada's PATO allies are quickly passed. The Communist Party is closely monitored in Canada now. Industries that were shuttered by the downturn are brought back to life, though unemployment is still high.
  • German Reich: The Rhineland has finally returned to its pre-war after half a decade of reconstruction, and with many new companies and factories popping up and the Iron Rhine fueling economic and industrial growth the Rhine is set to expand to heights never seen before. The Bundeswagen becomes an icon of the new Germany with the company rapidly expanding and selling large volumes of cost effective and realiable cars. The Bundeswagen 1950 gaining the nickname of car of a generation. Large numbers of the Panzer V are now being exported to Germany's asian and American trading partners, along with the widespread distribution of the G 06 rifle. Development of several new projects continue, most prominent the secret development of the Me Drachen project to become the German second generation fighter jet (based on the OTL Saab dracken) and the early stages of a prototype for the Panzer Leopard based on recommended improvements proposed by the German military for the Panzer V. Socially and politically the Reich has stabilized as democratic practices slowly return to Germany after more then decade of hybrid regimes. The final censorship laws, and public order laws are voided by the Reichstag, despite this many cities like Berlin, Munich, and Konigsberg remain conservative strongholds in the political spectrum while Vienna, and Munich grow as centres of left wing political groups aimed at promoting social equality and ending Germany's militant nature. Despite their tendency to support socialism all the left wing parties in Germany denounce the Soviet Union and Communism in favor of social democracy and a so called third way between Communism and capitalism. Germany officially announces to the world its intentions to reach Space and fulfill "Humanity's Destiny" after ardent talks with the German scientific community. Plans to send an animal into space within the next five years are made. The V-3 rocket is used as a prototype for future rocket designs and as the foundation for the German space program . An offshoot of this program is the Ballistic missile program aimed at developing a rocket capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, (im only just starting to develop this so its only a theory right now). Nuclear research continues as the government becomes interested in developing an even deadlier bomb then it currently possess based on the theoretical research of fusion or hydrogen bombs. Research and development of this weapon begins in top secret with Berlin keeping it a secret from all even their American and European allies. Development of new jet bombers and stealth fighters begin to replace the aging ones. The Puzzlebox is used as the foundation for the development of a machine capable of processing large amounts of information (1950s computers though they are still being developed so yeah not there yet XD). Medical research continues in depth as new medical advances occur daily in the ever changing world. Developing of stronger explosives begin. Research into applying nuclear energy for civilian purposes begin as nuclear power is seen as a huge possibility for improving Germany's energy production. Entertainment continues to evolve as Jazz and cabaret grow in popularity throughout Germany's major cities as the so called lost era continues. American cinema starts to have an increasing influence on German films. Accommodation and integration of Posen and Greater Prussia continue, as more Germans continue to trickle into the province from the East. Development of the G3 is completed and mass production of the new assault rifle begins, an SMG known as the MP5 is also developed and production begins in preparation for coming events. After years of grudging acceptance of their humiliating defeat in the previous war with France, Berlin decides that it would be unacceptable to allow the French a nuclear weapon with their intelligence agencies uncovering that the French have been working on such a program for several years. Fearful of losing their position of the primary power in Europe Germany declares war on France with the intention of incapcitating once and for all their centuries old rival. A secret message is sent to London to co-ordinate an attack against the French republic in exchange for under the table support for the Dominion. In a surprise attack, German forces launch a massive two-pronged attack into France, through the ardennes forest and Metz. The German air force attacks in co-ordination with Dominion forces wiping out much of the French air force allowing the German panzer forces to roll into the French countryside with little fear from the skies. The Germans aim to capture Paris and to co-ordinate with dominion forces to capture France's northern ports. The Army group north is led by Rommel smashes its way through the Ardennes, while the Metz group is led by Gundurian which pushes into Central France. The years of building up a powerful and advanced air force seem to be paying off as the Feared German Luftwaffe swarn the French skies and its bombers pummel French cities in a mix of terror bombing and strategic bombing to neutralize key French industry and military targets. 
  • Dominion of Britannica: In conjunction with the German invasion of France, Britannic naval and air forces engage French naval assets in the Channel. The DNS Veronica, DNS Imperator, and DNS Edinburgh rotate from their assignment in the North Sea, launching a massive air attack in conjunction with aircraft from airbases. The French naval base at Brest is hit especially hard, and most French surface assets in the Channel are sunk within 24 hours of the initial wave. Britannic paratroopers from the First Airbourne Division secure the strategic port. Over 1000 French aircraft are destroyed on the ground as low wave-riding bombers take out French radar stations. Toulon is also hit heavily, reducing French naval power projection by over 50%. The Dominion Air Force quickly establishes air superiority over France, allowing the German forces in the Ardennes and Metz to advance rapidly into the nation.
  • Ecuador: We begin by building up our military and infrastructure. We declare war on Britannia, though this means nothing as we're so small and fighting our own war. In addition to our forces fighting on the border with Colombia, we carry out Operation Emerald, in which we destroy railroad tracks to halt transportation for Colombia between the two fronts. We ask the USA to continue sending some military help to our war, even if they go to war with the British.
  • Canada: Prime Minister St Laurent is horrified to realize that the ships that were returned to Britannia a few years ago are now being used to blockade and attack France and Scotland, and Declares war on the Republic of Britannia, with King George VI also calling them the "scourge of the Earth," and vowing to "never rest until the criminals and traitors to the Anglo-Saxon heritage are dead, buried and forgotten." The ships that had been mothballed are called back into service and hastily refitted, and plans are made to expand the Army, Navy and Air Force rapidly. The first jet engines in Canada are developed with aid from British Exodus scientists and American aid, but it could be months or a year or more before jet planes are ready to fight. However, St Laurent is hesitant to call for Conscription, remembering the Crisis that took place in 1917.
  • South Africa: South Africa declares war on France, and mobilizes its military forces to begin combat operations against the French forces in Africa. Striking from its bases in Mauritius and Cabinda, the South African Defense Forces attack the French in French Equatorial Africa and Madagascar. The South African Marines land on the shores of Madagascar, and proceed to move deeper into the island to take the capital city. The rest of the states in southern Africa are requested to send troops to assist in the war, to which all respond immediately. The Union Defense Forces mobilizes its entire force of 913,010 personnel for the conflict, and moves against the French colonies in Africa. President Lutuli calls upon ANC members throughout French Africa to rise up and aid South Africa in liberating the regions under French control, and unite them under the banner of pan-Africanism. Tens of thousands respond to his call, while many thousands of others support the fight through other means. The population has expanded by 6.6%, while the economy, as predicted by the government, has expanded by a record 13.1% percent, the highest since the time of the formation of the Union of South Africa in 1910. The University of Cape Town continues to work on computer technologies, and in light of the death of Albert Einstein, purchases his scientific papers and journals from his son Has Albert Einstein, when one of the students at the university noticed the profound nature of his work and reported it to the university's head professors. Many of the university's scientists were awed by Einstein's study of physics, and many copies of his work requested and distributed to the professors at the university for study and research. One group of professors wishes to continue Einstein's work, and uncover what he had been looking for in his research until his untimely death. The ANC fully commits itself to the war effort, encouraging black Africans to serve in the military to help liberate their fellow Africans from European domination. The sentiment toward the war effort grows and many volunteer in the reserves to assist in the war. With Brazil calling for an "intervention" in South Africa, the fears of many have finally been confirmed, and hundreds of thousands of South Africans long suspecious of Brazilian intentions, sign up to serve as reservists in the event of an invasion. The government records more than a quarter of a million men and women agreeing to serve should the time come when they are needed.
    • Namibia: Namibia declares war on France and sends its troops to assist in the conflict.
    • Zimbabwe: Zimbabwe declares war on France and sends its troops to assist in the conflict. Zimbabwe calls up for a general mobilization of all males between the ages of 18 and 25, and registering them as reservists in the event of an French counterattack.
    • Southern Angola: Southern Angola declares war on France and sends its troops to assist in the conflict.
    • Swaziland and Lesotho: Swaziland and Lesotho declare war on France and sends its troops to assist in the conflict.
    • South African Ocean Territories: Mauritius and Seychelles declare war on France and sends its supplies to assist in the conflict.
    • Ethiopia: We will only stand for this attack on France if we are given Madagascar saying that this is not Pan Africanism.(This is an ultimatum so give Madagascar or face War)
    • South African Dip: Ethiopia has no naval power, and no ability to face South Africa in a direct confrontation. Any attempt to push the matter further, and we will call on you to repay the $15 million credit extended to Ethiopia in 1943, plus the 15% interest accumulate on the loan over the last eight years, bringing the total amount owed by Ethiopia to South Africa to $45,885,339. This cost is beyond the ability of Ethiopia to repay, and would bankrupt your nation ending any planned "invasion" by Ethiopia. So stand down and tend to your own affairs.
  • Scotland: President Alexander Williams of the year-old Republic of Scotland starts building up the military and economy of the new nation. The military is prepared in the case of a full attack by Britain. The President is quite pleased by the support of Scotland's independence by the United States and Ireland. An election is also held to elect Alexander Williams as President of Scotland, to show that Scotland holds its place among the democracies around the world. Alexander Williams declares the first political party of Scotland to be the Scottish National Party. An army of about 5,000 men is fielded and many troops are placed along the British border.
    • Argentinean Dip: We send a cargo ship carrying 15,000 bolt action rifles, 5000 pistols, and ten T-26 light tanks to Scotland for their military.
    • Scottish Dip: President Williams is quite pleased by this development and declares that he is very grateful for the supplies given by Argentina.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built. Thailand continues fighting against the invading Cambodians and Laotians, and uses its full military force to do so, and continues to deal with the Communist rebels within the nation.
  • Iran: Continue to secretly support the Kurdish of Iraq and Turkey throughout the autonomous region of Kurdistan and start to support democratic and secular Arabs movements in Iraq. We declare neutrality in the conflict in Europe but sell oil. The armt continue to be improve with American support while the secular regime gain in popularity among the young and secular Iranian. Investments to improve education are made.
  • Brazil: With the war in Colombia still going on the Brazilian military makes notable inroads into the country pushing deep. The Brazilian military gives a call to Colombia offering to end the war, if they renounce any attempt on Gran Colombia as well as open up to a democractic election and other economic influences from Brazil. Nereu ramos is elected for a third term (the previous year) Personally overtures to the Communist Colombian government and wishes to end the war as well, offering peace, economic stability, support of any ELECTED government and inclusion into a protective bloc with PATO and Brazilian influence. Ramos does, however, make it clear if Colombia refuses to these terms Brazil will continue the invasion and dismantle this illegally expansionist government. The Brazilian economy now out of the Recession and with new confidence restored in the Brazilian leadership and the economy, the Brazilian economy expands unexpectedly by nearly 9.3% and immense confidence is put into Brazilian economy as momentum gains intensely. The Brazilian military continues to gain new technological strength as the military now has nearly 25 Nuclear Weapons. The Jet technology is also put to greater use with new designs of fighters and bombers and other aircraft being put up in the military aviation sectors. With South Africas declaration of war on France and her colonies. Nereu Ramos officially petitions the United States to take interest in the situation of an aggressive and expansionist South Africa on our doorstep and a potential nuclear and greater military threat to the Atlantic and her nations specifically the Americas. Brazil makes the request for the United States to join in an intervention on South Africa to prevent them from gaining undue influence on Africa and her independent multitudes. The Brazilian navy in particular moves to the International waters near South Africa with an undisclosed amount of ships with the only known ship being at least a light carrier. This ship flies  constant combat air patrols around the particular stretch of ocean preventing anyone from getting a clear look at the fleet. The Brazilian air force also deploys nearly six nuclear devices to the Bases in Africa and considers their use should South Africa go beyond itself. The Brazilian forces in Mozambique increase to about 6000 and the Navy there expands to about ten destroyers, two cruisers and five frigates. The airbase here sports a good fighter and bomber complement as well. Angola holds nearly 10,000 troops as well as another airbase as well with the same complements. The fleet complement is extensive as the Brazilian store supplies here and also support the Light Carrier Barbosa.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to develop its domestic industry and oil refining capability but also manufactures its first home built military grade gun, it's a Semi-automatic marksman rifle named the M-45 Fantasma its given good marks by Brazilian and Venezuelan testers and possible adoption in Brazil's military is considered. The Venezuelan military looks to take over occupation and military force over occupied colombia as the potential for a war in Africa skyrockets and the major issue of a hegemonic and unrealistically expansive state in Africa trying to gain such major tracts of influence. The Venezuelan navy expands modestly adding another destroyer to the fleet.
  • USGN: In aid of our German allies, the United States of Greater Netherlands declare war on France. The Dutch navy leaves the ports and attacks the French coast, with the goal of taking out Le Havre, France's most important port. De Twaalf Provincien (our flagship), the Hollandse Trots and the Michiel de Ruyter, our biggest ships, are also used in the attack, alongside 20 other ships. 75.000 men are used in a coastal landing in Normandy, and we suggest that Britannica joins us in this attack on Normandy. 100.000 men remain in Maastricht. 125.000 men are used to invade Calais, with the goal of taking Lille. The Dutch Air Force (DAF) bombs the city of Le Havre and the city of Lille. 
  • German Dip: Berlin calls on Rotterdam to halt its offence against France as peace has been made under favorable terms for Germany and the Dutch. 
  • Republic of Turkey: Tajdin Serefxan, the Third President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks and Kurds to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural although by now, large scale development projects had been initiated. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy etc and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. Elections take place in the Turkish provinces and overseas Dominions. The three main parties that are taking part in the elections included the Socialist Party, the Development and Democracy Party and the National Advance Party. In Greece, the Socialist Party acquired ten seats, the Development and Democracy Party acquired 14 seats and the National Advance Party acquired 26 seats. In Thrace and Marmara, the Socialist Party acquired 113 seats, the Development and Democracy Party acquired 23 seats and the National Advance Party acquired 14 seats. In Western Anatolia, the Socialist Party acquired 43 seats, the Development and Democracy Party acquired 55 seats and the National Advance Party acquired two seats. In Central Anatolia, the Socialist Party acquired 65 seats, the Development and Democracy Party acquired 33 seats and the National Advance Party acquired two seats. In Kurd Anatolia, the Socialist Party acquired 14 seats, the Development and Democracy Party acquired 39 seats and the National Advance Party acquired 47 seats. In total, the Socialist Party won 245/500 seats, in comparison to the Development and Democracy Party winning 164/500 and the National Advance Front winning 91/500. After a few concessions, the Socialist Party won over a few MPs and acquired a majority; thus winning the elections. One of their first decisions included granting much more autonomy to the Kurd-inhabited regions and electing a Kurd, Tajdin Serefxan as the President of Turkey whilst a Half-Greek, Alistaire Valence is elected the Prime Minister of Turkey. Both of these actions are to appease the populace as well as because it is deemed that both would be willing to co-operate with one another. Meanwhile, with a large number of Irani agents captured in Kurdistan; we threaten to declare war upon Iran if they do not stop at once.
    • '​'​Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Exploiting the data given by Argentina, areas used by foreign agents to fund the HFA were attacked in major assaults by the Turkish army and a large number of foreign agents are captured.
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers.
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, six km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Turkish Diplomacy to Syria: The Syrians are promised military as well as economic aid, in exchange for an alliance. The Turks promise to send in troops as well if the situation with the Druze gets dirty. [Mod Response Needed]
    • Turkish Diplomacy to Lebanon: Turkey recognizes the state of Lebanon and promises military and economic aid to Lebanon. Moreover, the Turks promise to intervene if any nation attacks Lebanon. However, Lebanon would first have to sign an alliance with Turkey as well as allow Turkey to construct military bases in Lebanon. [Mod Response Needed]
    • German Dip: Germany warns against fighting Iran as it might draw pato into a large scale war in the region. Berlin offers to wor out arrangement to cut off the rebels from their support base, Germany also requests that ties between Berlin and Ankara start improving.
  • Switzerland: is declared the United Kingdom of the Greater Swiss Confederation, Switzerland for short. Franz Josef II is proclaimed King after swearing to uphold the laws of the constitution. Liechtenstein is formally integrated as the 26th canton. Roadwork improvement continues.
  • Belgium: Minister of Belgium Spaak is really confident that German Reich would defend us slightly with armed forces in Germany. Meanwhile, the troops gain more, which is looking forward for more plans to the military base.
  • Argentina: The military begins to mobilize the armed forces. Marines practice training drills on landing on islands. Work on nuclear weapons continues, and will be finished next year with two devices being planned on. 80 IT-43 tanks are finished and 100 T-26 light tanks are retired from the Army. The Navy receives another 24 fighter jets, replacing the propeller driven aircraft on the carriers. The economy continues to grow as goods from Germany, Canada and the United States come into the nation and raw materials are exported. The armed forces mobilize and the reserves are put into training drills. Economically, the government sanctions the British government. There are plans to form the United Patagonian Republic with Uruguay and Paraguay. (Eco/Mil Turn)
    • Uruguay: The Air Force retires the old trainer aircraft. The military receives another 15 T-26 light tanks. Economy continues to recover as trade increases. (Eco/Mil Turn)
    • Paraguay: The economy begins to grow with additional trade. Roadways begin to be connected with that of Argentina. The Army receives 25 T-26 light tanks. (Eco/Mil Turn)
  • Australia: Economy and Military are improved. The railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built. (Now the terminus is at Esperance, AU-WA)
    • Papua: Mil/Eco turn.
    • Indonesia: Mil/Eco turn.
  • Guatemala: Assists with the war in Colombia, which reveals numerous inadequacies in its troops' equipment and training. The expeditionary force is, however, able to seize capture large amounts of industrial machinery, oil-drilling equipment, and modern weaponry. Of particular interest are some numbers of tanks, which are returned to Guatemala with an eye to replication for the military. Numerous Colombian engineers are also brought back to Guatemala (voluntarily, of course). The oil industry in the Belize province doubles in production this year with new infrastructure, and is now supplying most domestic needs, as well as being exported. Although the People's Socialist Party is reelected this year in highly questionable elections, the new, more moderate premier requests to normalize relations with the US.
  • Your troops were never used in the Algo. None of this can happen if Brazilian commanders are not using your troops. -Feud
  • China: Military and Economy is improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the re-introduction of Chinese land back into the Republic. We actively seek investors as well as increase tensions with Japan over the territory they have. 
  • Ethiopia: We begin construction of our half tracks with their 88 mm guns instead of tanks because they are cheap and effective. We begin construction of ten airplanes for commercial use and ten for military use. We begin building our five destroyers naming it the Oromo after the ethnic groups themselves. We would like to build an alliance with a great power of Europe like Germany. We declare war against France in support of South Africa but we still request a part of Madagascar .
    • ​South African Dip: South Africa is pleased with the development in Ethiopia, and we acknowledge the Ethiopian request for a portion of Madagascar. Should the war go well, Ethiopia will be given governing powers in the Malagasy province of Antsiranana.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary many years ago. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • France: The French Army are in shock not over the fact that the Germans shot first and declared war, but shocked at the cowardice of both the British and the Dutch. In an attempt to keep most of the French government stable, many improtant French officials, businessmen, scientist, peoples, and even offering those French civilians safe haven in Africa, are moved to French African Colonies to wait out the war, delaying their independence if only for a while. Meanwhile, current president of France Charles De Gaulle refuses to leave Paris, as "I would rather die defending my home from such cowardly lions such as the Brits and those conniving Dutch who are mere bastard children of Germans not worthy of holding the pride and spirit of their German forefathers." Those surviving ships of Toulon are sent out to hunt down are destroy any British ships that dare step a single foot into Mediterranean waters. Soon after production and rebuilding of the navy begins full swing in both surviving ports and France and in colonial holdings. The Army is fully mobilized in France's time of need the 2.5 million active soldiers are sent to slow down the German advance in France's Eastern provinces. Meanwhile, the two million in reserve troops are called into action with one million of those soldiers being sent to go slaughter the Dutch forces, the rest are sent into Normandy to defend from any more possible invasions and secure France's northern provinces. Quick recruitment of more able body French citizens is taken in full effect going as far as allowing even women to join into the army to defend their home country, as an expected four milliom more able-bodied citizens are expected to join and join the fight for France. The AMX 13s begin rolling out and are put in both combat against German tanks and against the Dutch, they prove quite effective against the Dutch. However, the Germans are able to deal the same amount of damage as the French can do in tank battles. Though a majority of the Northern Air Force bases are hit, we begin pulling together as many resources as we can to rebuild our Air Force in the South. Everything in reserve in the French military is used; old planes, bombers, tanks, and weaponry; all used to delay the opposing enemey forces. In response to South Africa's unlawful declaration of war on us we rally as many Colonial soldiers and natives as possible to help defend the colonies closet to South Africa. We even go as far as bribing and arming the natives in South Africa who hold historic animosity towards the whites and majority South African ethnicities to fight against them. We call upon what allies we have to help us in our time of need. The British and Dutch being the over cocky nations they are overlooked one vital Naval base, Cherbourg. The remaining fleet in the English channel is mustered together in Cherbourg as it is the one place missed by both the Dutch and Brits, and since the region has been re-inforced by one million reserve forces and one million reserve forces are marching towards the bulk of the Dutch forces, "Hell hath no fury that compares for what these French people feel for these Germans, Dutch, and British snakes." (Mil/Econ Turn)
    • Argentinean Dip: We inform the French that our Navy has an aircraft carrier operating in the region currently as well as three destroyers, two submarines, and a cruiser. They are clearly marked so we expect that there will be no attacks on our vessels. Any such attacks will not be taken lightly. All of our civilian vessels are clearly marked, and there are arms onboard to repel any attacks.
    • German Dip: Germany offers France peace on the terms of demilitarizing their borders with the Netherlands, Belgium, and the German Reich, accept the German occupation of Alsace Lorraine, and have all coal, steel , and armaments production in North East France placed under the supervision of the of a Coal and steel comission ran by a board of Germans, French and Americans. Germany also requests in private that France enter talks to hand over a portion of the machinery in their nuclear facilities to limit their production of nuclear weapons.
    • French Dip: We accept, so long as this ends our petty rivalry set up between our forefathers that we were born into. Also that Germany makes sure to put its pets on a noose like leash.
    • German DIp: Germany agrees and all German forces currently advancing into France are ordered to halt and allow the French to engage in against dominion forces shoudl they decide to but Paris is warned not to engage dutch forces. 
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan, and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur. The Soviets lock down the development of nuclear weapons and material, and the KGB track down and kill the man responsible, although they are too late to prevent his information from spreading. Harsher and more effective measures are taken to crack down on members of the government and military from leaking weapons or information that is classified. Some troops are sent to Cambodia, Laos, and Burma to aid in their endeavours and to help spread Communism in the region. Aid is also sent to Iraq and now Syria in efforts to aid the two states in minimizing their losses against opponents.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 80,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer.
    • Kingdom of Greater Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. Improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. With Aden now under the  Yemeni government, the nation celebrates. The Capital is relocated to Aden, and efforts to fix the damage caused by the war begin.
    • Kingdom of Kuwait: Saudi Military occupation continues, projected to end sometime next year. The Nation sees an economic growth, using the large amount of oil in the region to sell off to foreign powers.
  • The United States publicly denounces the declaration of war by various powers on France. However, the nation begins to gear toward war in case the war comes to America or America has to go to war. In the meantime, the military expands, with the building of new vehicles, weaponry and ships of all kinds and sorts. As there might be a war overseas soon, the military occupation of Mexico is sped up drastically and projected to end in six to twelve months, as opposed to one to two years. At home, there is nothing of significant note except NASA, which begins research into space exploration and potentially having something enter the orbit of the planet. Also, research into the hydrogen bomb continues and more nuclear weapons are constructed, adding to the stockpile that America has been building for five years now. The government also continues to denounce Communism, as well as the Soviet Union's effort to create more Communist nations in Indochina and the surrounding area. The potential of sending aid to the anti-Communist forces in these regions is discussed, but quickly shot down as a probable waste of American money and resources.

Kurdistan declares official independence from Turkey, Iraq, and Iran, and state that they always deserved free rule.

Revolts rock Venezuela against the Brazillian regime. These revolts spill into Brazil, and damages their economy.

The English colonies in Southern Africa distance themselves from South Africa, and declare they will never join willingly.

New political parties arise in Scotland, stopping any dream of a two-party system.

Spain begins decolonization of Africa, beginning with the Congo.

In Inodchina, the Communists continue to fight Thailand.

Discontent begins to grow in France over the current government after the seemingly easy victory of the Germans. Ultranationalist right-wing political parties grow in attendance by 250%, although nothing serious really happens.

The worst act of defiance by the Finnish Resistance results in the death of over a thousand Soviet soldiers as a bomb is set off on a Soviet-built bridge, bringing down more than three train lines full of troops being transported out of Finland.

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built. Thailand continues fighting against the invading Cambodians and Laotians, and uses its full military force to do so, and continues to deal with the Communist rebels within the nation.
  • Do you want to become Communist?
  • Sure, since from the looks of it I've no chance at defeating them, and plus I'd rather have peace established. -Seiga
  • OK then. Next turn just have the Communists take over.
  • Ecuador: We continue to improve our military and infrastructure. We end Operation Emerald as a success, and begin Operation Ruby, in which we send troops into the forest to scout the Oriente and easily cross the border into Colombia. We offer Colombia a peace treaty, with no border changes and some small reparations from Colombia (Mod Response). We condemn the Argentinian entry into the Pacific Trade Organization, as they are not on the Pacific, and want their membership revoked. We vote in favor of Guatemalan entry, but abstain to the American membership request. We inch towards an alliance with Japan. We begin to devise a plan to let women into the military.
  • You nation cannot plausibly align with an outside influence from the Americas tbh. Your Ecuador, a small underdeveloped nation that was pretty much just saved by Brazil with good ethical and moral support from the US. Your nation would in no way even attempt bailing on two heavy and much closer great power influences. -Feud
  • 'German Reich: The swift victory over France has left the population of Germany stunned. confidence in the right wing coalition government goes through the roof as major cities across the Reich celebrate the quick victory. Having avenged the betrayal of 1941 the German population and government becomes a lot less hawkish against the French republic. Berlin looks to the east as the Russian Bear expands its influence. In a famous speech that is aired all across the national radio station and and filmed on Germany's first television set, Reichkanzler Karl Friedrich Goerdeler states the following " With an end to the Franco-German War, Europe is now headed in a new direction. In this new era Germany shall stand firm and vigilant against the Red Menace, in 1941 we the proud people of Germany tried to stop their advance into Europe and failed due to the betrayal of our allies. Now, however, we shall stand as a beacon. A beacon of tradition, a beacon of morality, and a beacon of virtue in the tide of evil. Germany is the last pillar of civilization on a frontier filled with Barbarians and we will hold the line at all costs. With our Czech allies we will keep the red menace from advancing further into Europe at all costs. An iron curtain has falling over Europe and we stand on the edge my brothers and sisters. Let us prove ourselves up to the task." while short the speech gives its desired effect as the population roars in applause and start singing the German national anthem. Production of military hardware ramps up as sales to the Middle East, South America and China increase. The G3 is quickly made the standard weapon of the German armed forces as the G 06 is phased out. Development of the Leopard continues as captured AMX 13 tanks from France provide useful insight into flaws in the original design. Development of a newer APc continues. Development of the Me Drachen and a new attack fighter continue. Development of the cluster bomb continues with prototypes being tested in the Baltic Sea. Development of the hydrogen bomb continues in secret along with the development of ballistic missiles. Medical research continues. Efforts to turn nuclear energy into a source of sustainable energy continue. Development of the computer continues as the German military and intelligence recognize the potential of such a device for amassing and transferring information. Naval expansion continues as Germany continues to try to develop a green water fleet. Emphasis on modern ships is made as plans for large battleships are abandoned in favor of Cruiser and destroyers carrying modern weapon systems, and U-boats armed with modern torpedoes. Major Heinrich Albert of the Military counterintelligence services defects from Germany after coming across a series of papers on Germany's previous projects such as the V-2, and the Fission nuclear bomb, looking to make a quick buck he flees to Africa heading to the Congo where he feels he won't be caught (OK, it's up to the mods what happens to him now. I am tossing a bone to make the game interesting and a lot more fucked up). The intelligence leak leads to a crackdown on military protocol and proper screening of all members of the intelligence sector. Cultural and social liberation continues as the lost decade continues. Berlin jazz is quickly growing into some of the best in the world, and the German night scene attracts tourists from around the world as they come to see the big shows and diverse actors who also come from a variety of backgrounds. Oriental Dance grows in popularity as a small Turkish and Syrian neighborhood pops up in the middle of Germany's biggest port Hamburg. Industrial expansion continues as the Rhineland and Silesia boom due to war time production and the increase of foreign exports. Austria also enjoys economic growth. The Iron Rhine is expanded to Berlin, Danzig and Hamburg. Berlin offers a free trade agreement to Prague and offers to extend the Iron Rhine into Czechoslovakia to improve the transportation of Bohemian goods to outside of Europe. (mod response, please).'Weapons are sold in mass to Syria to help the country protect itself from the chaos in Iraq. The occupation of Elba-Lonthringen begins. However, the free movement of French in and out of the area is allowed so that the economy of the region is not disrupted. Berlin offers to begin training the Chinese army along German lines.
    • ​Turkish Diplomacy: Germany is congratulated for its swift victory over France. 
    • China Diplomacy: We continue to accept the German offers. 
  • Dominion of Britannica: British troops return triumphant from France, and VF-Day (Victory in France Day) is declared a national holiday. National morale and Reacher's approval ratings skyrocket and the First Airbourne Division (which suffered almost no casualties) is given an enormous parade in London. The DAF continues to expand as 500 more aircraft are built, and tank production continues to run high. Recruitment increases by 150% as a surge of patriotism runs through the nation. Anti-aircraft defenses continue to be built along the coast, and backup radar stations are constructed to protect against any bombers, nuclear or conventional. Submarine research continues. Nuclear research also continues at a high pace, and the first functining nuke is expected to be built by late 1952 or early 1953. The Dominion Navy mostly finishes construction, content with eight fleet carriers and nine smaller Crusader-class carriers. More money is put into jet fighters and other new technology in the air. The Helios-1 test is a resounding success, and Helios-2 is planned for 1952. Finally, as Britannica prepares for its first nuclear weapon, a treaty is proposed that will ban first-strike use of nuclear weapons to reduce the odds of a conventional war turning nuclear.
  • Scotland: President Alexander Williams immediately equips the army with the supplies shipped by the Argentinians. More troops are raised as well, which with the 5000 people who had joined the army earlier this year, the total amount of troops numbers about 15,000. A few troops are selected to be trained to use the T-26 light tanks from Argentina. More troops are placed along the border, and some fortifications are built along the border. President Williams starts some incentives to bring back Scottish intellectuals who left Britain during the Communist regime, offering economic support and such. The President also takes an interest in some of the writings of the Scottish Renaissance, as being very patriotic, he finds writing in the vernacular of the country a good way to differentiate from the English. He decides to start minor government funding for Scottish artists, hoping to promote Scottish media over British. He promotes the view that Scots is a separate language from English.
  • France: Though the French surrendered quickly in the war with the Germans, Charles De Gaulle does not leave his position as president of France, stating that his decision to end the war so early was to "save the lives of the French people, a war over a petty rivalry that started a century ago does not need to continue, and that the people on both sides do not need to suffer. Though I know my people are angry with my decision, they must know I did it for the right reasons." Though the hatred for the Dutch and German peoples will remain for some time, none greater hate can be quelled for those traitorous Communist snakes known as the English. None greater hate can be felt for them. As the Fleet in the Mediterranean is sent to go fight off the South Africans in attempts to protect its African holdings. A large force of 1.5 million active French soldiers are sent to fight them off, while the remaining three million are sent into Northern France to protect from further British forces. The soldiers are also sent to rebuild ports and air force bases damaged by the British. Equipment from artillery batteries, radar, and anti-aircraft equipment are set up to defend from further British forces. Old military and destroyed military equipment are recycled to create better equipment. Anti-Aircraft and Naval equipment is set up along the English channel to protect from the British forces. The rebuilding of the French Navy and Air force are set as a number one priority for the French. The war with Germany has allowed us to make improvements upon the AMX13 which was proven as a success, but with a few hiccups in the design of the tank. The French Navy begins its priority for building up more aircraft carriers, destroyers and submarines. While Jet Fighters and advance bombers are a top priority in the French Air Force. Meanwhile, the first nuclear bomb is tested in the Sahara wielding an estimated 25KT payload. While the production of more nuclear weaponry is set up, and the testing of nuclear power as an energy source begins testing. (Mil/Econ turn)
    • Dutch Dip: All troops withdraw and we apologize for any inconveniences. We offer the French a trade agreement as a sign of goodwill.
  • USGN: With the war over before it truly began, all troops return to the country. While Germany and Britannica celebrate the victory, the Dutch find no pride in this war, and hope this is the last time we combat France. Mil and eco. Our industry benefits greatly from the Iron Rhine. The G3 is adopted as the main assault rifle, and we contirbute to the research of the Leopard. We recognize the independence of Scotland. 
  • Republic of Turkey: Tajdin Serefxan, the Third President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks and Kurds to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia. In comparison to them, Central Anatolia was not quite urbanized with the exception of Ankara and Eastern Anatolia was largely in rural although by now, large scale development projects had been initiated. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counter intelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and a plans to construct a fleet carrier were underway although technological support from the USSR was required. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy, etc, and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 500 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with German StG 44 Rifles whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet and French nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as StG 44 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made minor progress into nuclear physics largely due to little knowledge and relative lack of government funding. President Tajdin Serefxan, in a speech to the Kurdistan people acknowledges the Kurd desire to become an independent state, and instead of waging war; he believes that the Turks and Kurds would be much more mature to rather negotiate. He proposes further autonomy to the Kurds if they would like to remain part of Turkey as well as a few more concessions. The President pushes forward his belief that an independent Kurdistan would cripple in a proxy war between the USSR and PATO. Moreover, the President expresses his view that without lack to the sea; Kurdistan would indeed have to depend upon the same nations that it fought war against. He believes that Turkey would surely become more liberal to the miniorities in the future, and considers his own election as the President of Turkey despite being a Kurd as evidence. Finally, the President states that while merely harm would be brought to the two brothers, Turks and Kures if an independent Kurdistan was established; with unity. These two brothers can find success. The President also informs the Kurd leaders that whatever their response maybe, negotiations must continue for neither the Turks nor the Kurds would want to witness the sufferings of war. In particular, the Kurds are reminded of the suffering faced by the Turks as well as the Greeks due to the war-mongering attitude of the Hellenic Freedom Army. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. Under his leadership, drastic measures were undertaken including the execution of the former leadership of Greece as well as ban upon Greek Nationalist groups and all private paramilitary groups were forbidden. As per Turkish instructions, the Governor had the Turkish flag raised at every Greek historical as well as cultural site and a statue of Turkish President, Mustafa Fevzi Cakmak was built at the Syntagma Square. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Negotiations are started with the Greek rebels. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers. 
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, six km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed. Turkish Diplomacy to Syria: The Syrians are promised military as well as economic aid, in exchange for an alliance. The Turks promise to send in troops as well if the situation with the Druze gets dirty. [Mod Response Needed] Turkish Diplomacy to Lebanon: Turkey recognizes the state of Lebanon and promises military and economic aid to Lebanon. Moreover, the Turks promise to intervene if any nation attacks Lebanon. However, Lebanon would first have to sign an alliance with Turkey as well as allow Turkey to construct military bases in Lebanon. [Mod Response Needed]
    • Mod Diplomacy: Lebanon rejects your offer.
    • Mod Diplomacy: Kurdistan seeks full and total independence but is also seeking to avoid bloodshed.
  • ​Kingdom of Egypt: The government continues to become weak as the people's opinion of Farouk I declines. Meanwhile, Gamal Abdel Nasser and Muhammad Naguib continue to plot the revolution in secrecy.
  • Switzerland: Begins to rearm, despite the apparent end of hostilities between France, Britain and Germany. some 210,000 soldiers are now in the military. Sales of the Helvetia car are as high as ever, being hailed as the car that moved Switzerland, and certainly much of Europe. Work continues in developing a second-generation N-20 jet, though production is a few years away still.
  • Iran: The Shah is overthrown by the army as he is blamed for the isolation of Iran in the region and General Arman is proclaimed Shah, The new shah immediately proposed the Soviet Union a trade treaty and proposed the reduction of the defensive fortification at the border on both side to reduce tension. Support for the foreign Kurds ends as well while we call the local Kurdish leaders to negotiate and propose a larger autonomy to the autonomous region that would include the use of their own language locally and rule their economy. We offer a hand of friendship to Turkey to co-operate for a stable and secular Middle East. We will continue to honor our treaty with America.
    • Turkish - Irani Diplomacy: Whilst Turkey continues to remain cautious of Iran, we welcome the hand of friendship extended by Iran and respond accordingly. A diplomat is sent to Iran, and major issues are raised; in particular concerning Irani funding of Shi'ite and Kurdish groups in Iraq and Turkey. The diplomat expresses his view that such funding of insurgents has now led to the Kurds rising everywhere and will surely and eventually led to the destruction of Middle East. Therefore, Iran and Turkey must work jointly to tackle the Kurd issue. Secretly, Iran is also warned that any attempts by Iran to ever harm Turkey would surely destroy any future reconcillation and would completely shatter any link existing between Iran and Turkey. 
  • Argentina: After years of work, it has finally paid off, a helicopter has been successfully tested. It is small, and only can carry two people onboard, but can be lightly armed with torpedoes and machine guns. Forty are ordered for the Navy to use on the ships in support of waterway operations as well as the carriers. Two minesweepers are laid down. The Navy continues to leave a fleet off the coast of Scotland in a show of support, although the aircraft carrier is withdrawn and replaced by a battleship. There are talks of retiring the two battleships in the near future as the aircraft carrier seems to have replaced it, and their age is beginning to cause additional expenses. The two ships would be replaced by four destroyers. Work on missile and rocket design begins, and work on nuclear weapons continues. It is planned with the advances that we have made in the past decade, and support from the United States, Japan, and Germany that we will deploy our first nuclear bomb in 1960. Most of the work and planning is done, the major time consuming portion is designing a bomb casing for the nuke as well as finishing purifying enough uranium and plutonium. Work on a heavy reactor begins in the Andes to increase the amount of plutonium produced. The economy is going strong with mining and drilling taking place in the north. Some in the government look to potentially take over Chile. Plans to form the United Patagonian Republic are put underway and a constitution with Paraguay and Uruguay is planned for the following year. Many citizens support this as it will increase raw materials, strengthen our defense, and improve our nation overall. (Mil/Eco Turn)
    • Uruguay: The government and citizens support the plan to form the United Patagonian Republic. Some petition Montevideo to be the capital city of this new nation. Plans to integrate the transportation and communication infrastructure are planned. (Eco/Infra Turn)
    • Paraguay: The government and people all support the formation of the United Patagonian Republic, as this will give our people more of a voice in such a federation. Connection of national infrastructure continues with Brazil and Argentina. (Eco/Infra Turn)
  • Australia: Infrastructure and Military are improved. The railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built. (Now the terminus is at Bremer Bay, AU-WA)
    • Papua: Mil/Inf turn.
    • Indonesia: Mil/Inf turn.
  • Belgium: We are delighted that France is surrendering to the Germans, following an easy victory of them by offer a peace for France to demilitarize the borders of Netherlands and Belgium. Spaak hopes Wallonia will do a best chance for more troops to come for Belgium forces to put more ground in them. Even Liege is the capital city with more people, but the work will be harder. He still predicts for another access to the sea but in his lose of Flanders cost him a Belgium Kongo sold to Spain. He has to put more action to provide even more business and political reasons on them.
  • Bulgaria: We try to recover our economy and industry.
  • Brazil: While there are some significant riots that damage the conomy in the crossover issues from Venezuela, nothing major is hit and the Greater national economy shows no real major hit from this issues (there is nothing for them to cross over and damage that's significant enough to really hurt my economy). The Brazilian military still stands on ready in case of South African advances, but with the recent end to the broader European War, the French seem to be building up to counter attack the South Africans. The Brazilian military decides to see how the French handle the situation and Brazil once again turns to Colombia. The Brazilian military floods some army troops back to colombia, and presses the attack on Colombia. Brazil requests the unconditional surrender of Colombia or continue dealing with the Intervention. (MOD) The Brazilian military continues to develop its next generation weaponry making good prototypes of new battle rifles and assault rifles. Brazil eases off Venezuela a bit allowing the nation to handle some of the riots themselves. Brazilian people seem somewhat annoyed with the Venezuelans cross into the border but make no realy big deal aside from a few news stories. Brazil begins to more heavily develop the oil off its coasts which has been recently discovered. The Potential to build more Oil platforms begins to be discussed and the Government controlled Company Petrobas begins to make investments. The Brazilian highway infrstructure has also improved significantly with a major highway being completed along the Amazons River connecting Every settlement and major city into the City of Amazonas.
    • Venezuela: The Venezuelan people having rioted previously are calmed down significantly following a government announcement of the partial nationalization of the remaining untapped oil fields essentially announcing a policy of self development on the rest of its oil fields. This leads to an increase in trade to Brazil as the equipment is purchased to further develop differing oil fields and other industrial option. This also leads to a general increase in the industrial production of the country in order to seem less dependent on Brazil. The Venezuelan government for some of these reforms regains a good popularity base and also gains some control of its restive political parties. While most of the parties are Pro Brazilian investment, another Party retain a Pro Trade basis leading to an upset in the Venezuelan Federal Congress leading to a more pro economy, than pro Brazil Stance. This stance, however, doesn't nullfy the relationship between the two countries. After a poll it's shown that Venezuela still maintains a near 65% pro Brazil population.
  • China: Military and Economy are improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the re-introduction of Chinese land back into the Republic. We actively seek investors as well as increase tensions with Japan over the territory they have. 
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary many years ago. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • South Africa: South African troops continue to push deeper into French Equatorial Africa, taking the city of Brazzaville, and setting up a military government in the area, moving the force's commanding officers up from Cabinda into the former capital of the French colony. In Madagascar, the South African marines have successfully established themselves on the island, with regular army personnel having seized the Malagasy capital of Antananarivo. The mopping up of the French forces in Madagascar continues, though many troops are sent back to the African mainland to prepare for the French invasion. A draft order is issued by the government, calling upon all the men placed into the reserves in the past three years to go to their local recruitment stations for uniforms and weapons. A total of one million South African men, mostly from the black homelands, are drafted to the defense of the country. With women taking up many industrial jobs in the country, many additional men are freed up for military duty. The SAS RiebeeckRhodes, and Paul Kruger, are reassigned to the Atlantic, along with most of the South African and Union Navy, a force of some 160 warships. The anti-aircraft defenses along the western coastline of South Africa are manned, and the navy places in a location so as to block any attempt to bypass them. Looking to the German agent who fled his homeland with nuke designs, South African government agents approach him with an offer of protection in exchange for his nuclear weapon plans. Elsewhere, the South African government considers joining PATO.
    • Zimbabwe: More than a hundred thousand men are drafted by the military according to past military service calls, and armed to serve in South Africa's defense. The industrialization of the farmlands in Zimbabwe along with the gradual integration of the economy into that of South Africa's, has served well in allowing the state to supply its southern neighbor with all of the food it requires, which will be needed in the days to come.
    • Namibia: 15,000 troops are mobilized by the Namibian government to defend the territory from external invasion, and to assist the Union Defense Force in the war effort. The supply of U-265 is shipped out of the territory and into central South Africa for safe-keeping until the danger has past.
    • Southern Angola: 75,000 men are drafted by the military to serve in the Union Defense Forces, and sent to the South African force preparing for the invasion.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: Industrial expansion in Lesotho and Swaziland continue under the supervision of the South African government. The defense forces of the two states are expanded in their combat capabilities, allowing the union states to assist in the wider protection of the Union of South Africa.
    • South African Island Territories: The economy and the industries of the island territories are improved and expanded by the local government.
    • No algo was done, you can't claim anything when you haven't even clearly won an algo. -Feud
    • Actually, I can claim that I won since I asked Pita for the results of the algo. So if you could please unstrike my post, thank you. ~Viva
    • Madagascar is actually Spanish as well according to LL, it was handed over after the first war with the Germans ... so if anything you've only made a move on French Equatorial Africa. -Feud
    • Oh excellent, so that means I'm only fighting on one front then. ~Viva
  • The United States builds up its military and infrastructure. The President calls for war with England, as they have been imposing on the rights of Scotland in the past, and now on that of France. In Congress, the Senate votes 71-31 in favor of war, while in the House, the vote is 396-43. As such, war is officially declared on England. America also calls for all nations of PATO to join this war against this power. The US Navy, from their position in the North Sea, blockades England as much as possible, but there is constant naval fighting with the English Navy, which is close to, but not as strong as, the American equivalent. The Air Force also begins conducting bombing raids over England, particularly major cities like London. The military occupation of Mexico officially ends as forces are concentrated on fighting England its associated nations. At home, the United States continues research into rocket technology, hydrogen bombs, and space exploration. The hydrogen bomb may even be completed in the next year, but in the meantime, more nuclear weapons are built and stockpiled. However, the war with England divides the public and many predict that Dewey will not win reelection in 1952.
    • The American military occupation of Mexico ends, and free elections are held in Mexico to elect a new government. Mexico sees the rise of many new political parties, chief among them the Reform Party and the United Front. Mexico applies for membership in PATO.
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan, and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur. The Soviets lock down the development of nuclear weapons and material, and the KGB track down and kill the man responsible, although they are too late to prevent his information from spreading. Harsher and more effective measures are taken to crack down on members of the government and military from leaking weapons or information that is classified. Some troops are sent to Cambodia, Laos, and Burma to aid in their endeavours and to help spread Communism in the region. Aid is also sent to Iraq and now Syria in efforts to aid the two states in minimizing their losses against opponents.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. Finnish forces with aid from the Soviets crack down hard on dissent and resistance, and the full power of the state is used to bring and end to the forces of the insurgency. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • Guatemala is saddened by the Brazilian refusal of aid in the Colombian war, but this does provide the advantage of enabling Guatemala to keep all its troops available for national defence, something that quickly proves necessary. The government successfully crushes a Salvadorean terrorist group this year, breaking up the network of agents it possessed, but discovers that it was supplied and supported but the Nicaraguan government. Enraged at this interference, the Premier successfully passes a motion declaring war on Nicaragua in the Presidium. The same night, Guatemala's fully mobilized forces of 100,000 (using conscription) cross the border. El Salvador, Belize and Mosquitia all declare war and provide contingents of 50,000 apiece. Meanwhile, the vastly superior Guatemalan air force launches strikes on roads and the capital, while Communist groups throughout Nicaragua rise up, attacking government forces.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 80,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer.
    • Kingdom of Greater Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. Improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. With Aden now under the  Yemeni government, the nation celebrates. The Capital is relocated to Aden, and efforts to fix the damage caused by the war begin.
    • Kingdom of Kuwait: Saudi Military occupation continues, projected to end sometime next year. The Nation sees an economic growth, using the large amount of oil in the region to sell off to foreign powers.

1952.0

Colombia agrees to end the war.

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built. Despite the Thai government's best attempts, they are overthrown by the Communists. The Socialist Federal Republic of Thailand is established, with Phayom Chulanont, leader of the Communist Party of Thailand, becoming the first president.
    • Soviet Diplomacy: The Soviet Union congratulates the people of Thailand at liberating themselves and extends an offer of membership in CATO for the new government.
    • Thailand Diplomacy: President Phayom Chulanont, after a while of thinking, decides to agree on joining the organisation.
  • Republic of Turkey: Tajdin Serefxan, the Third President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks and Kurds to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia, which were now amongst the most urbanized areas in Turkey. In comparison, Central and Eastern Anatolia were largely rural although major development programs over the past few years led to massive increase in urbanization; and particularly led to large scale immigration of Turks which drastically decreased the Kurd dominancy maintained over Eastern Anatolia. As far as energy was concerned, oil deposits discovered in Eastern Thrace and Northern Anatolian coast were mined. Turkey, in particular was a large producer of lignite which was largely mined from Eastern Anatolia. However, also keen on acquiring a source of energy which would be renewable; major dams were constructed throughout Turkey. Of significant notice was the Karababa Dam constructed the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and two fleet carriers, TCG Derman and TCG Solmaz. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy, etc, and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 700 aircraft. The Turkish infantry were heavily armed with Soviet AK-48 whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as AK-48 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made significant progress into nuclear research as an adequate amount of funding was given by the government. President Tajdin Serefxan, initiates talks with Kurd rebels regarding independence and what the borders of a Kurd state would be. At the very same time, Prime Minister Alistaire Valence visits the USSR; hoping to secure Turkish presence in CATO. Whilst this was going on, large oil deposits were discovered in Eastern Thrace as well as off the coast of Northern Anatolia. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Negotiations are started with the Greek rebels. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Cyprus: The brother of the Greek Prime Minister, George Rallis was elected as the Governor of Cyprus to signify virtual enosis between Greece and Cyprus. In Cyprus, merchant shipping was largely promoted due to its proximity to the Suez Canal, and the port of Famagusta acted as a major port in Eastern Mediterranean. The Cypriot economy largely depended upon export of agricultural goods which was promoted and tourism maintained a major role in the economy. Moreover, the strategic position of Cyprus allowed Turkey to establish complete control over Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Laws were passed to maintain peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and the government was particular not to take any sides for fear that it would result in a civil war. Meanwhile, the Turks from Turkey migrated to Cyprus in large numbers. 
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, six km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, the Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Turkish - Syrian Diplomacy: The hand of friendship is extended to Syria and the government is recognized. Moreover, Turkey offers an arms deal and an alliance to Syria. [Mod Response]
  • Iran: The new government agree to stop weakening Turkey and Iraq if Turkey do not try to weaken us. We offer Pakistan a trade agreement and a defensive alliance against India. The military continues the production of Iranian tanks and planes which now use jet engines, though they are relatively primitive when looking at America and Turkey. We continue negotiation with the Kurds and seek a compromise about the issue.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Turkey has never funded insurgent groups nor has it ever sought to weaken Iran. Rather, we have always sought to maintain close relations with Iran; having repeatedly offered trade deals but never receieved any reply. Nevertheless, President Tajdin Serefxan looks forward towards co-operation between Turkey and Iran. Moreover, the President requests the Shah of Iran and Irani Kurd leaders to visit Deyarbakir to discuss the future Kurd state in a meeting between the leaders of Turkey and Iran and their respective Kurd groups.
    • Iranian Dip: We accept but the air forces has several planes and a small discrete force partially mobilized and ready to intervene if Kurdish extremists take the shot to seize the shah and the Turkish president hostage.
  •  Kingdom of Egypt: The Egyptian Revolution of 1952 begins after Gamal Abdel Nasser and Mohammad Naguib tries to overthrow King Farouk I and make Egypt a republic, therefore most men over 16 or 18 are taken into the military. However, many desert and convert and join the Revolutionaries. By the 25th of July they take control of Alexandria. Farouk I flees to Italy on the 26th of July and the Kingdom has collapsed, the Republic of Egypt shall be proclaimed next year, in 1953, and the revolutionaries shall fight monarchists. (This is the Egyptian Revolution of 1952 and this is what happened).
    • German Dip: The government in Berlin offers a hand of friendship to Egypt.
      • ​Egypt Dip: We accept. 
    • Italy Dip: We're not just going to accept your dissidents into our country singlehandedly. We send him back to Egypt to face his fate.
      • Egypt Dip: We thank Italy for sending the King back to this country. He shall face his fate by execution next year.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Turkey extends an olive branch to Egypt, and recognizes the new Egyptian government. Moreover, keen to acquire an ally in the region; Turkey proposes signing an arms and an economical deal with Egypt. With due time, if Egypt is willing; then Turkey shall also construct an embassy in Egypt.
      • Egypt: We accept and thank Turkey.
    • The United States offers Egypt a mutual defense pact.
      • Egypt Dip: We accept.
  • German Reich: The swift victory over France has left the population of Germany stunned. confidence in the right wing coalition government goes through the roof as major cities across the Reich celebrate the quick victory. Having avenged the betrayal of 1941 the German population and government becomes a lot less hawkish against the French republic. Berlin looks to the east as the Russian Bear expands its influence. In a famous speech that is aired all across the national radio station and and filmed on Germany's first television set, Reichkanzler Karl Friedrich Goerdeler states the following " With an end to the Franco-German War, Europe is now headed in a new direction. In this new era Germany shall stand firm and vigilant against the Red Menace, in 1941 we the proud people of Germany tried to stop their advance into Europe and failed due to the betrayal of our allies. Now, however, we shall stand as a beacon. A beacon of tradition, a beacon of morality, and a beacon of virtue in the tide of evil. Germany is the last pillar of civilization on a frontier filled with Barbarians and we will hold the line at all costs. With our Czech allies we will keep the red menace from advancing further into Europe at all costs. An iron curtain has falling over Europe and we stand on the edge my brothers and sisters. Let us prove ourselves up to the task." while short the speech gives its desired effect as the population roars in applause and start singing the German national anthem. Production of military hardware ramps up as sales to the Middle East, South America and China increase. The G3 is quickly made the standard weapon of the German armed forces as the G 06 is phased out. Development of the Leopard continues as captured AMX 13 tanks from France provide useful insight into flaws in the original design. Development of a newer APc continues. Development of the Me Drachen and a new attack fighter continue. development of the cluster bomb continues with prototypes being tested in the Baltic Sea. Development of the hydrogen bomb continues in secret along with the development of ballistic missiles. Medical research continues. Efforts to turn nuclear energy into a source of sustainable energy continue. Development of the computer continues as the German military and intelligence recognize the potential of such a device for amassing and transferring information. Naval expansion continues as Germany continues to try to develop a green water fleet. Emphasis on modern ships is made as plans for large battleships are abandoned in favor of Cruiser and destroyers carrying modern weapon systems, and U-boats armed with modern torpedoes. Major Heinrich Albert of the Military counterintelligence services defects from Germany after coming across a series of papers on Germany's previous projects such as the V-2, and the Fission nuclear bomb, looking to make a quick buck he flees to Africa heading to the Congo where he feels he won't be caught (OK, it's up to the mods what happens to him now. I am tossing a bone to make the game interesting and a lot more fucked up). The intelligence leak leads to a crackdown on military protocol and proper screening of all members of the intelligence sector. Cultural and social liberation continues as the lost decade continues. Berlin jazz is quickly growing into some of the best in the world, and the German night scene attracts tourists from around the world as they come to see the big shows and diverse actors who also come from a variety of backgrounds. Oriental Dance grows in popularity as a small Turkish and Syrian neighborhood pops up in the middle of Germany's biggest port Hamburg. Industrial expansion continues as the Rhineland and Silesia boom due to war time production and the increase of foreign exports. Austria also enjoys economic growth. The Iron Rhine is expanded to Berlin, Danzig and Hamburg. Berlin offers a free trade agreement to Prague and offers to extend the Iron Rhine into Czechoslovakia to improve the transportation of Bohemian goods to outside of Europe. (mod response, please). Weapons are sold in mass to Syria to help the country protect itself from the chaos in Iraq. The occupation of Elba-Lonthringen begins. However, the free movement of French in and out of the area is allowed so that the economy of the region is not disrupted. Berlin offers to begin training the Chinese army along German lines. Germany publicly states that aerican and PATO forces. Germany also declares support for the campaign against England. However, the government falls short of declaring war on London but air raids against English vessels and air defence of the German and Dutch Ports begin to counter any efforts on the part of the English to attack the Reich or its allies.
  • Federation of Ubangi-Shari and Moyen-Congo (FUSMC): Barthélémy Boganda of the Movement for the Social Evolution of Black Africa (MESAN) and starts a fuss in French Equatorial Africa and asks for France to devolve more power to Ubangi-Shari Department, whist assuring France and Germany that their interests are safe. He meets Jacques Opangault, the founder of the Mouvement Socialiste Africain (MSA) who wishes for more autonomy for the Moyen-Congo Department. Federation of Ubangi-Shari and Moyen-Congo (AKA a united OTL Congo and CAR). Both men agree to share power in the push for more political and economic power for their land. The Federation of Ubangi-Shari and Moyen-Congo and It would be a French vessel at first, hoping to get independence by 1960. It is asked for France to allow noticeably more more of its revenue from locally grown rubber and timber to be retuned to the local assemblies to insure the development of the local economy. French and German economic interests will remain safe and France and Germany need not fear home rule for the region (Vassal status) leading to indipendence in ~circa 1960. Major Heinrich Albert of the Military counterintelligence services is found and questioned by the Congolese (see Germany's post above).
    • Mod Dip: Did you even talk to LL about your freedom? If not, then this is all going to get crossed out. YOU NEED PERMISSION.
    • Someone Who Isn't The Player For FUSMC: Well, Pita has always allowed players to play as insurgent groups or any such thing. I am quite sure Eric was opposed to Sarajevo played as the Indian Independance Army but upon being granted permission by Pita (?); Sarajevo played nevertheless. Similarly, FUMSC Player does not necassrily need LLs permission. If he gets Pitas permission, it should be fine. You know, the impeachment failed badly, didn't it? 
    • Then he needs to post like an insurgent group then. Unless LL approved the entire nation he needs to reformat this heavily
  • Australia: Infrastructure and military are improved. The railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built. (Now the terminus is at Walpole, AU-WA)
    • Papua: Mil/Eco turn.
    • Indonesia: Mil/Eco turn.
  • United Patagonian Republic: The governments of Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay are unified under one government. The temporary capital is Montevideo, but a planned capital city is designed to be built in a few years. The militaries of each nation begin to integrate, and complete integration is planned by 1955. Special elections are planned for 1955 to elect a President, Vice-President, and the Head of the Senate. This brings more capital into the nation and aids in economic development. The armed forces begin building radar stations on the various South Atlantic Islands as well as installing antiaircraft guns and begins constructing airbases to station fighter aircraft. The military begins to acquire chlorine and sarin gas. The deep-water port and refueling station on the Falklands is complete. (Eco/Infra Turn)
    • ​Brazil Dip: We hope the new government retains its Pro-South America, and pro-PATO status. 
  • Brazil: The Brazilians receive word of Colombian Capitulation just following the capture of Bogota by the now Famed 7th Armored Division which led the massive push into the City. Brazilian Forces outside of this also continued deeper into colombia only receiving the Colombian Surrender with nearly 75% of the country under Brazilian control. The Brazilians enforce all the previous demands brought up by President Ramos and officially put Colombia under a transitional government supported by nearly 100,000 Brazilian troops remaining within the Country and with full support from the Brazilian Government. The Brazilian economy once again begins to grow as the shift from a wartime to peacetime economy leaves a general surplus investment into the Brazilian industrial sectors and the influx of manpower by a new generation of Brazilians entering the work force. This growth has led to a nearly 9.5% growth in GDP. The War casualties remained relatively low due to stunning Brazilian military superiority over Colombian ground forces. The Colombians and their air force were shown to be much more competent and aside from engagement with new pilots the Colombian air force surprisingly held its ground against Brazil's aerial forces. The Brazilian military continues to show decent technological and doctrine growth. The Brazilian armed forces release two new rifles, the IM-33 and the IMA-20 a Battle rifle, and an Assault Rifle, respectively, both drastically departing from the German StG-44 Model. The Brazilian air force and navy continually add new jets to their retinues and the Navy in General due to the immense focus is deemed to be one of the most modern in the world. The Brazilian population has reached a large 56.3 million. The Federal congress passes the Two Oceans Naval Act of 1952 authorizing the establishment of a Pacific fleet with the size to be listed by the Admiralty. Brazil oil industries off the coast continue to develop and other oil resources are also used with a major bump in the economy being noticed as the Brazilian oil begins to more directly benefit the country. Nereu Ramos seeing how dirty Rio De Janeiro is, launches a government clean up of the city, which comes out to be widely successful. Many of the cities subsidiaries and tourist spots are also cleaned up and Ramos proposes a certain standard for Brazilian businesses and local governments to keep cities clean and modern. The Brazilian military manufactures ten more nuclear weapons. The possibility of developing a nuclear power plant is considered as well. Brazilian aircraft make a bold Flyover of Cabinda with multiple fighter aircraft and warn South Africa to end the war on France or face the consequences. A Nuclear weapon is also tested directly in international waters just beyond South African control to make the point clear.
    • Yeah, bullshit. -Pita
    • Venezuela: Venezuelan people rejoice as a potential threat to them has been brought to its knees by their Brazilian allies. The Popularity of a Pro-Brazil stance continues to increase to nearly 67% but falls slightly due to some disapproval of the Transition methods Brazil is utilizing in Colombia. The Venezuelan oil industry begins to develop independently with other oil fields being developed and refineries as well. However, with the rather impressive show the oil fields produce much more than predicted with worker efficiency being cited. The Venezuelan armed forced increase to nearly 150,000 with a certain GDP percentage being recommended by various PATO nations giving them an example on how to model their armed forces. The Venezuelan military begins studies to develop or acquire the same doctrine as Brazilian forces.
    • Colombia: The Transitional government of Colombia is established with much stabilization to take place. The transitional government plans for election in 1955 while various safety nets, and problems inherrent in a post invasion nation are handled. The decently developed colombian nations industry is brought back up to working order and a more capitalist system is re-established with many factory owners having their factories restored. Surprisingly the Brazilian general leading the pacekeeping force in Colombia allows for a Communist party to remain only arresting and removing the extremist elements and promoting the more logical and accepted Communist leaders. Campaigning begins even though the election is years away. The Colombian economy regardless of a destructive war undergoes the developings of an economic miracle as the high quality coal reserves draw in Brazilian investment and purchases. The Colombian military remains semi disarmed but the more capable forced are reformed into a more militarized police force to be used in conjunction with the current Brazilian force involved in the country. Around the time of the new elections the General of the Brazilian peacekeepers agrees to restore Colombian military. The Colombian navy maintains almost all its previous ships with all captured ships being reinstated in a Colombian Navy. 
    • UPR Dip: We reassure Brazil that we have no ill intent. Our political union is to increase our economic and military strength, as well as increase political clout.
  • Belgium: Facing the entity of war between French and Germans, we recover our economy and military to start helping Belgium to become more offensive and defensive. The Brussels is still under control from Netherlands and Belgium, but no confirmation is revealed. The people are leaving Brussels and it looks like it was Belgium's faultness of being in the war with French.
  • Dude your entire turn made no sense. 
  • Dominion of Britannica: Furious at the declaration of war by the cowardly Americans, the Britannic Navy withdraws to the North Sea and the Channel to defend their homeland. Anti-aircraft guns continue to be built on the coast, and experimental new surface-to-air batteries are deployed around London. Meanwhile, the Dominion Air Force launches a crippling strike on French assets in Northern France, taking out the majority of the French fleet in the Channel and devastating all airbases in striking distance of London. Satisfied that French naval capacity has been crippled, the First Airbourne Division begins landing operations in Gibraltar, aiming to take back the island from the Canadians. Operation Tropic Thunder is also nearly complete - the first Britannic nuclear weapon is expected to be complete by either July or August. Britannica also calls for Germany to end their airstrikes, shooting down incoming German jets but not bombing German cities and industrial centers.
  • That seems highly unlikely to me. Your country had two revolutions and recently Scotalnd and Ireland seceded. No way in hell.
  • Greater Switzerland: begins preparing for any outbreak of war due to Britannica's warmongering. Troop levels increase to 240,000. 
  • Why is Switzerland of all nations going to war?
  • Hell, I'm okay if he wants to take a different direction, but why on Britannica? 
  • Who says I'm going to war?
  • USGN: With the war over before it truly began, all troops return to the country. While Germany and Britannica celebrate the victory, the Dutch find no pride in this war, and hope this is the last time we combat France. Mil and eco. Our industry benefits greatly from the Iron Rhine. The G3 is adopted as the main assault rifle, and we contirbute to the research of the Leopard. We recognize the independence of Scotland. In honour of our PATO membership, we declare war on the Dominion of Britannica. No moves are made however, and the fleet is ordered to stay in the ports. 
  • France: The French continue rebuilding our infrastructure and military in the northern provinces. With the English's constant bombardment of the northern provinces, we begin building air force bases a good distance out of their range. We also continue building up anti-aircraft and anti-naval batteries off the northern coast to defend from further raids from the English air force and navy, as orders are given to open fire on any British military aircraft and naval vessel that is seen within their line of sight. Those three million in northern France continue training and rebuilding Northern France to help the infrastructure. We, however, move the rebuilding of our navy to the Western and Southern coasts of France and the North African bases. A large majority of the French navy is sent to fight the British out of Canadian owned Gibraltar to secure safe passage out of the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, one million troops are in Africa trying to hold off the advancing South African soldiers. Our nuclear arsenal is currently up to 15 nuclear weapons ranging from the lowest of 20KT to the highest being 25KT. We sell three nuclear weapons to the Argentineans, in a trade for an aircraft carrier, a dozen fighter jets per year, and oil. Bringing our nuclear arsenal back to 12. Meanwhile, we continue our support of PATO against the English government, and even wish for admittance into the organization, after our last attempts in the mid 40s. The rest of our navy joins with Brazilian naval vessels and order South Africa to leave French colonies, or else it will experience the first use of nuclear weaponry launched on a nation. (Mil/Econ turn)
    • Argentinean Dip: We agree to this deal and begin construction of the aircraft carrier, and send you 12 fighter jets.
  • South Africa: In spite of Brazilian warmongering, the South Africans continues their push into French Equatorial Africa and Madagascar. The South African military fortifies the nation's territories, and builds up its forces along the western coastline, and blockades the French colonies in Central Africa to prevent supply ships from reaching Brazzaville. The South African reservists are trained while they wait for the French counterattack, and focus on building up fortifications in the kill zone regions of the defensive perimeter of South Africa. Elsewhere, the population expands by 6-7% and the economy by 5.8%, with the introduction of women into the workforce in larger numbers helping to increase the size of the economy. The University of Cape Town continues to tear through the information gained from Einstein's notes and scientific papers, seeking to develop breakthroughs based on the man's work. Elsewhere, the program to increase the state's ability to sustain itself continues, with funding to assist industrial centers develop their local resource acquisition chains.
    • Zimbabwe: Zimbabwe expands its military and infrastructure.
    • Namibia: Namibia expands its military and infrastructure.
    • Southern Angola: Southern Angola expands its military and infrastructure.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: Industrial expansion in Lesotho and Swaziland continue under the supervision of the South African government. The defense forces of the two states are expanded in their combat capabilities, allowing the union states to assist in the wider protection of the Union of South Africa.
    • South African Island Territories: The economy and the industries of the island territories are improved and expanded by the local government.
  • China: Military and Economy are improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the re-introduction of Chinese land back into the Republic. We actively seek investors as well as increase tensions with Japan over the territory they have. 
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary many years ago. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Yugoslavia: Milan Jovanovic takes over in a military coup, a Serbian Nationalist and Fascist. He immediately improves the military and economy, and re-inforces the draft. He makes a secret police, known as the mirovnjaci, to combat all Communist parties and movements in the country. We ask any countries who would like to become our allies and friends. Since the economy collapsed as a result of the Treaty of Krakow, the Communists are blamed for ruining the lives of many people, especially Serbians. Jovanovic considers lowering the rights of Muslims in the country. We begin to improve our technological advancement, especially our air force.
  • The United States builds up its military and infrastructure. The war with England continues. Landings are made in Scotland and troops are prepared there for a land invasion of England. The US Navy, from their position in the North Sea, blockades England as much as possible, but there is constant naval fighting with the English Navy, which is close to, but not as strong as, the American equivalent. The Air Force also begins conducting bombing raids over England, particularly major cities like London. The military occupation of Mexico officially ends as forces are concentrated on fighting England its associated nations. At home, the United States continues research into rocket technology, hydrogen bombs, and space exploration. The hydrogen bomb may even be completed in the next year, but in the meantime, more nuclear weapons are built and stockpiled. Dewey is nominated for President again by the Republicans, and the Democratic frontrunners are Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson.
    • The American military occupation of Mexico ends, and free elections are held in Mexico to elect a new government. Mexico sees the rise of many new political parties, chief among them the Reform Party and the United Front. Mexico applies for membership in PATO.
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan, and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur. The Soviets lock down the development of nuclear weapons and material, and the KGB track down and kill the man responsible, although they are too late to prevent his information from spreading. Harsher and more effective measures are taken to crack down on members of the government and military from leaking weapons or information that is classified. Some troops are sent to Cambodia, Laos, and Burma to aid in their endeavours and to help spread Communism in the region. Aid is also sent to Iraq and now Syria in efforts to aid the two states in minimizing their losses against opponents. We agree to reduce border tensions with Iran, and send aid to Iraq to handle any issue in the region.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. Finnish forces with aid from the Soviets crack down hard on dissent and resistance, and the full power of the state is used to bring and end to the forces of the insurgency. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • Guatemala: Continues the war on Nicaragua.

1952.5

Algo Report: Gibraltar falls to Britannic paratroopers.

Nuke report: Brazil can get nukes by '55 and South Africa by '60. That is final.

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved and repaired, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • Republic of Turkey: Tajdin Serefxan, the Third President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks and Kurds to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia, which were now amongst the most urbanized areas in Turkey. In comparison, Central and Eastern Anatolia were largely rural although major development programs over the past few years led to massive increase in urbanization; and particularly led to largescale immigration of Turks which drastically decreased the Kurd dominancy maintained over Eastern Anatolia. As far as energy was concerned, oil deposits discovered in Eastern Thrace and Northern Anatolian coast were mined. Turkey, in particular was a large producer of lignite which was largely mined from Eastern Anatolia. However, also keen on acquiring a source of energy which would be renewable; major dams were constructed throughout Turkey. Of significant notice was the Karababa Dam constructed the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and two fleet carriers, TCG Derman and TCG Solmaz. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy, etc, and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 700 aircraft. The Turkish infantry was heavily armed with Soviet AK-48 whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as AK-48 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made significant progress into nuclear research as an adequate amount of funding was given by the government. President Tajdin Serefxan and Shah Arman, as well as the leaders of Turkey's Kurdish and Iran's Kurdish leaders have a meeting at Diyarbakir to discuss the future Kurd state. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Alistaire Valence visits Egypt to meet with President, Muhammad Naguib and Deputy Prime Minister, Gamal Abdel Nassar Hussain. Along the same time, Cyprus was annexed. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Negotiations are started with the Greek rebels. 
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, six km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Turkish - Syrian Diplomacy: The hand of friendship is extended to Syria and the government is recognized. Moreover, Turkey offers an arms deal and an alliance to Syria. [Mod Response]
  • Republic of Egypt: We appreciate the recognization and help from other nations, especially Turkey and Germany and other nations, we also thank the Turkish leader for his visit and look forward to strengthening ties with Turkey and the outside world. With the Republic being established in a few months, we use that time to fight the monarchists. However, many convert to our forces, doubling our forces, therefore we also use the time to combat terrorists. Daily patrols happen in all cities.
  • Belgium: Spaak hopes his mistake will put him behind. But for now some strategies are begin to work at the military bases. With troops very hard on their sights. [Eco/Mil Turn]
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 90,000 men. Naval expansion continues. With the ongoing war, Saudi Arabia declares neutrality. Saudi Arabia accepts the American offer. Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Kuwait propouse forming the Middle East Co-operation Organization with the other nations in the region. Saudi Arabia launches an invasion of Qatar. 6,000 Saudi troops joined by 4,000 Yemeni Troops. we request arms from the Germans.
    • Kingdom of Greater Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase of its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 35,000 men. Improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. With Aden now under the  Yemeni government, the nation celebrates. The Capital is relocated to Aden, and efforts to fix the damage caused by the war begin.
    • Kingdom of Kuwait: Saudi Military occupation continues, projected to end sometime next year. The Nation sees an economic growth, using the large amount of oil in the region to sell off to foreign powers.
  • Australia: Infrastructure and Military are improved. The railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is still being built. (Now the terminus is at Bunburry, AU-WA; passing through Pemberton)
    • Papua: Mil/Inf turn.
    • Indonesia: Mil/Inf turn.
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home.

The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • Switzerland: Continues the same course. Development of an updated N20 jet continue. 
  • German Reich: The swift victory over France has left the population of Germany stunned. confidence in the right wing coalition government goes through the roof as major cities across the Reich celebrate the quick victory. Having avenged the betrayal of 1941 the German population and government becomes a lot less hawkish against the French republic. Berlin looks to the east as the Russian Bear expands its influence. Production of military hardware ramps up as sales to the Middle East, South America and China increase. The G3 is quickly made the standard weapon of the German armed forces as the G 06 is phased out. Development of the Leopard continues as captured AMX 13 tanks from France provide useful insight into flaws in the original design. Development of a newer APC continues. construction of Choppers begin as the military determines their usefulness in troop transportation and as support for infantry. Development of the Me Drachen and a new attack fighter continue. development of the cluster bomb continues with prototypes being tested in the Baltic Sea. Development of the hydrogen bomb continues in secret along with the development of accurate ballistic missiles. It is thought that the first ICBM will be finished by 1954 (OTL The allies and Russians had them by 1952 so im taking my time), and that the hydrogen bomb will be finished by 1955 (again taking my time). Medical research continues. Efforts to turn nuclear energy into a source of sustainable energy continue. Development of the computer continues as the German military and intelligence recognize the potential of such a device for amassing and transferring information. Naval expansion continues as Germany continues to try to develop a green water fleet. Emphasis on modern ships is made as plans for large battleships are abandoned in favor of Cruiser and destroyers carrying modern weapon systems, and U-boats armed with modern torpedoes. Major Heinrich Albert of the Military counterintelligence services defects from Germany after coming across a series of papers on Germany's previous projects such as the V-2, and the Fission nuclear bomb, looking to make a quick buck he flees to Africa heading to the Congo where he feels he won't be caught (OK, it's up to the mods what happens to him now. I am tossing a bone to make the game interesting and a lot more fucked up). The intelligence leak leads to a crackdown on military protocol and proper screening of all members of the intelligence sector. Cultural and social liberation continues as the lost decade continues. Berlin jazz is quickly growing into some of the best in the world, and the German night scene attracts tourists from around the world as they come to see the big shows and diverse actors who also come from a variety of backgrounds. Oriental Dance grows in popularity as a small Turkish and Syrian neighborhood pops up in the middle of Germany's biggest port Hamburg. Industrial expansion continues as the Rhineland and Silesia boom due to war time production and the increase of foreign exports. Austria also enjoys economic growth. The Iron Rhine is expanded to Berlin, Danzig and Hamburg. Berlin offers a free trade agreement to Prague and offers to extend the Iron Rhine into Czechoslovakia to improve the transportation of Bohemian goods to outside of Europe. (mod response, please). Weapons are sold in mass to Syria to help the country protect itself from the chaos in Iraq. The occupation of Elba-Lonthringen begins. However, the free movement of French in and out of the area is allowed so that the economy of the region is not disrupted. Berlin offers to begin training the Chinese army along German lines. Berlin decides to end air raids against the English as there is little political will to go against the Regime in London, despite moderate success in damaging structures in the city and along the English coastline. German politicians start to openly criticize the unquestioned loyalty towards America, while Germany states it will remain a member of PATO and maintain its strategic friendship with the U.S.A. and Brazil The Reich can not intervene in events that do not directly effect Germany's geopolitical agenda. With this statement made Berlin continues to focus on the Soviet and Communist threat. Despite this public announcement in private the government promises that German ports will be open to American, and other PATO country fleets for basing and refueling. The BND (German intelligence) slowly start a series of spy rings in countries affiliated with the Soviet Union who still maintain relations with Germany and the western nations. Efforts to court locals to work as sources begin. However, the BND is giving strict information only collect info and not to act or provoke any incidents. The German advisors in countries like China, Arabia, and in South America are also instructed to begin collecting information on any possible left wing movements in these parts of the world. To avoid major incidents Berlin informs the Chinese government, Brazil, and their Saudi allies that Germany wishes to co-operate with local authorities in uncovering and weeding out left wing movements before they grow. In a secret envoy to Saudi Arabia, German delegates request Saudi support in outfitting German sponsored spy rings in the Middle East using Saudi nationals who do not stand out as much. The German space program continues with the scientists involved in the project optomistic that they will be able to send a chimp into outer space by 1957 after their missile launch into space proved very successful, and they believe that they will have a satellite in space by 1956.
  • The Saudis accept.
  • USGN: With the war over before it truly began, all troops return to the country. While Germany and Britannica celebrate the victory, the Dutch find no pride in this war, and hope this is the last time we combat France. Mil and eco. Our industry benefits greatly from the Iron Rhine. The G3 is adopted as the main assault rifle, and we contirbute to the research of the Leopard. We get our first own nuclear weapon (I already know I'm gonna get some shit about this, but it's because of my agreement with Germany, which grants me access to all equipment and weapons Germany has). We recognize the independence of Scotland. In honour of our PATO membership, we declare war on the Dominion of Britannica. No moves are made however, and the fleet is ordered to stay in the ports. This year, a small group of 18 year old new signups start a special program, called Griffin. They are trained and specialized for espionage, with the eventual goal of becoming our special forces. Their training is planned to take five years, and thus it will finish in 1957
  • Yugoslavia: Yugoslavia increases military and economy. He gains support by helping the economy grow. Jovanovic secretly pays a Bosnian, and gives him asylum, in order to murder his right-hand man and take the blame. After his right hand man is murdered, Bosnian Muslims are blamed for the murder, and some are arrested for conspiracy. For these arrested Bosniaks, we make work camps, in which they make the weapons and uniforms we need in order to defeat more Bosniaks, in a terrorizing infinite loop. Racism towards the Bosniaks reaches an all time high, as does Serbian Nationalism. Eastern Orthodoxy is declared the National religion of Yugoslavia. In the military, we continue our construction of warplanes and tanks. We ask Britannia for an alliance, and to join the "Fascist/Nationalist Sphere of Influence". We also ask Britannia for a trade agreement and to help us improve our technology. The draft continues. Jovanovic grants women more rights, but Bosnian Muslims less.
  • United Patagonian Republic: The military sends a heavily armed convoy, picking up the three nukes from France and returning them to our nation. We lay down the carrier for France and 12 jet fighters are sent to the French. One nuke is dismantled for research, and we begin to work on the core for our nuclear weapons. Four minesweepers are laid down for the Navy. Integration of each previous nation's governments and militaries continues. The economy begins to grow with the increased domestic capital and resources for the government. Trade with Germany picks up as does trade with China and Japan. There is some considering to put tariffs on imports to force self reliance to an extent for our nation. The fleet in the English Channel moves to meet with the rest of the PATO fleet. An aircraft carrier is deployed as well in support of the rest of the fleet. Another ten helicopters are produced for the Navy. Another 20 medium tanks are produced. The Army deploys 50 military advisors to aid the Scottish Army. The Air Force deploys 24 propeller driven fighter aircraft to Scotland. (Mil/Eco Turn)
  • Dominion of Britannica: The First and Second Airbourne Divisions perform marvelously in Gibraltar, seizing the island from Canadian hands with minimal casualties on either side. The Fourth Engineering Corps begins fortifying the island, installing multiple AA batteries, anti-ship guns, and SAM missiles. Repair also begins on the neglected airstrip on the island. Meanwhile, the Dominion Navy swings north towards Iceland, launching an invasion of the strategic island of Iceland. Meanwhile, the first Britannic nuclear weapon is detonated near Greenland in Operation Hurricane. The plutonium implosion device has a yield of 25 kilotons and is a resounding success. Recruitment continues, and active military numbers rise to 1.25 million men. Supreme Chancellor Reacher signs Executive Order 1899, desegregating the armed forces. One more carrier, the DNS Vatonica is launched, the newest of the recently created Ubisoft-class carriers.
  • Ethiopia: We begin construction of our half tracks with their 88 mm guns instead of tanks because they are cheap and effective. We begin construction of ten airplanes for commercial use and ten for military use. We begin building our five destroyers naming it the Oromo after the ethnic groups themselves. We would like to build an alliance with a Great power of Europe like Germany. We declare war against France in support of South Africa but we still request a part of Madagascar . We will not back down until South Africa as our leader does.
    • Britannica Diplomacy: We are interested.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary many years ago. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • China: Military and Economy are improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the re-introduction of Chinese land back into the Republic. We actively seek investors as well as increase tensions with Japan over the territory they have. 
  • Brazil: Brazil begins to stand down a bit more but also begins a focus on the build up to send troops to join the United States against England due to their increasingly hostile attitude. The Brazilian navy in general begins to shift north as battlegroups start drifting near European waters, using PATO Allies as major supply bases. The Brazilian fleet also deploys the Fleet Carrier Rui Barbosa to the north atlantic to make clear contact with American forces. The Brazilian economy grows modestly at about 4.3%. This drastic decrease in the previous years growth comes from what's told to be the beginning of an investing phase in the economy and that only modest growth would hold true during this period. However, in secret 'revealed to be the beginning of a major and final investment in the Brazilian nuclear program aimed at achieving a bomb in 1955. The Brazilian technological development continues as well with the considerations for an all purpose tank gaining popularity over different classes. This begins to culminate in the design of a Main Battle Tank rather than a Heavy or light tank. This prototype is slated to field a 105mm smoothbore gun. The Brazilian air force continues its development as well adding a naval carrier aircraft as well known as the A-2 Halberd an attack aircraft as well as the F4A Seahawk. These aircraft take over the Carrier fleet by storm and the beginnings of a new class of carrier are put underway to retire the older carriers and to update them to modern standards. The Brazilian navy reaches nearly 180 oceangoing warships with many other auxilaries, troopships, and support craft as well. The Brazilian army maintains its forces in Colombia and continues investment into the country. The Brazilian government begins surveying new locations for a new capital city.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to invest heavily into its oil and refining industries looking to expand its domestic production significantly, with the greater profit flow coming in the Venezuelans begin to realize this goal as dozens of extremey promising developments are reporting in the oil field infrastructure build up. The Venezuelan armed forces begin training under the new battle doctrine and officially standardize their munitions with Brazil in order to share equipment, munitions, and co-develop weaponry. The Venezuelan economy shows intense growth as the Oil industry picks up significantly. the Population reaches 4.5 million. The Venezuelan military also throws in investment into the new Brazilian tank program looking to acquire this peice of equipment for itself. The Venezuelan fleet begins to conduct its own patrols in the open ocean now fielding a semi-modern, and modest navy.
    • Colombia: The transitional government continues to fix damage from the war which becomes to be known as a blessing in disguise do to the massive flow of investment coming back following the near death of the economy following the Communist coup in Colombia. The Colombians begin to buy up resources and industrial product from Brazil at an alarming rate which greatly surprises the Brazilians. This is shown, however, that many key or choice goods and products are easier to purchase from Brazil than the US due to much shorter distance. The colombian nations continues to advance out of a dark economic recession and is expected to recover fully by 1959 and begin major growth by 1960. The scale of damage done by the war, however, remains moderate and the various rebuilding spurs an infrastructure development in the country.
  • Guatemala: and all its associated states continue to war against Nicaragua, which has now progressed for three years. Mods, could I please get an algo for this war, please? Or, alternatively, can I get permission to do it myself?
  • Scotland: President Alexander Williams issues a declaration of war against against the Dominion of Britannica, in light of recent events. All current troops are sent to attack Northern England, and full mobilization begins. American troops are accepted in Scotland and the current army tries to co-ordinate military actions with them. The President performs a patriotic speech in Edinburgh, raising spirits among the people. Funding is put into military and industry, with Scottish arms factories being told to copy the designs of the weapons given by the Argentinians a year earlier.
  • France: The French continue rebuilding our infrastructure and military in the northern provinces. With the English's constant bombardment of the northern provinces, we begin building air force bases a good distance out of their range. We also continue building up anti-aircraft and anti-naval batteries off the northern coast to defend from further raids from the English air force and navy, as orders are given to open fire on any British military aircraft and naval vessel that is seen within their line of sight. Those three million in northern France continue training and rebuilding Northern France to help the infrastructure. We, however, move the rebuilding of our navy to the Western and Southern coasts of France and the North African bases. A large majority of the French navy is sent to fight the British out of Canadian owned Gibraltar to secure safe passage out of the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, as substantial number of troops are in Africa trying to hold off the advancing South African soldiers. Our nuclear arsenal is currently up to 15 nuclear weapons ranging from the lowest of 20KT to the highest being 25KT. We sell three nuclear weapons to the Argentineans, in a trade for an aircraft carrier, a dozen fighter jets per year, and oil. Bringing our nuclear arsenal back to 12. Meanwhile, we continue our support of PATO against the English government, and even wish for admittance into the organization, after our last attempts in the mid 40s. The rest of our navy joins with Brazilian naval vessels and order South Africa to leave French colonies, or else it will experience the first use of nuclear weaponry launched on a nation. (Mil/Econ turn)
  • South Africa: South Africa continues its campaign in French Equatorial Africa, moving to take out French defenses along to the Congo River. Likewise, South African troops march on the city of Yaoundé, spreading ANC ideology as they go in a "mind and hearts" campaign, showing the future residents have under South African governance. In response to the French threat, South Africa increases the number of aerial patrols to shoot down any French aircraft attempting to bomb South African locations. With the general decimation of the French air force, and the British blockade keeping the remnants of the French navy holed up, South African strategists agree that France has little ability to get an atomic bomb into southern Africa. However, the military remains on high alert from any French aircraft seeking to move into South African territory. Supplies and re-inforcements are dropped off in Cabinda by the South African Navy, and trucked up to the troops advancing in the region. Elsewhere, research in the University of Cape Town continues, and developments on Einstein's research progresses. The South African military places several orders for new weapons and equipment, and the defense industries throughout the nation begin work on designing the requested items for the SADF. The auctioning off of off military equipment begins, with offers made to China, Ethiopia and Argentina. Expansion of local industries becomes a major priority of the South African government. Agricultural sectors are producing a surplus every year, with more than enough for local consumption and foreign export, while mining remains strong and vibrant. However, though the nation's industrial capacity is both highly advanced and highly productive, many government officials believe more can be done to increase production. On the educational front, the literacy level of the black population increases to 50%, thanks to the aggressive policies of the past and present governments to ensure the ability of black Africans to operate in the South African economy fully.
    • Zimbabwe: Zimbabwe continues to expand its local industries, feeding the profits from its industrialized farming into the factories and mining centers across the country. As in South Africa, the nation's literacy rate increases greatly, with more than 30% of the black population capable of reading and writing. The military expands its active personnel forces, and sends them off to fight in Cameroon, to assist the SADF forces in the area.
    • Namibia: The fortification of the nation continues, though all of the military personnel in the area helps expand the local industries as troops on leave go into town to rest and spend their paychecks. Elsewhere, the SANEC continues its nuclear weapons program, though most of the resources have been relocated deeper into the nation for safe keeping with the second branch of the SANEC.
    • Southern Angola: Southern Angola expands its military and infrastructure.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: Industrial expansion in Lesotho and Swaziland continue under the supervision of the South African government. The defense forces of the two states are expanded in their combat capabilities, allowing the union states to assist in the wider protection of the Union of South Africa.
    • South African Island Territories: The economy and the industries of the island territories are improved and expanded by the local government.
  • The United States continues the war with England. Dewey wins reelection.
    • Mexico expands economy and military.
  • Italy: We absorb Albania, making our vassal (Pita says this was okay). We put down the final rebels in Athens (our vassal in Greece), and build up our military around the Yugoslavian border.
    • Athens: We build up our economy and military.
    • Albania: We secure ourselves from a potential invasion from Yugoslavia, thinking that they might try to put Albania back in its sphere. We also build up our economy.

1953.0

Algo Report: Italy defeats Albania, South Africa pushes into Equitorial Africa, Guatemala defeats Nicaragua, America is repulsed by Britain.

  • Having crushed Nicaragua, Guatemala finds that it has a high degree of support from the population due to the local prevalence of "Sandinista" rebel groups, which are closely aligned with Guatemalan ideals. Recognizing that Guatemala alone can no longer govern all the territory it controls, Guatemala allows the Sandinistas to take control of Nicaragua, and the two nations unify, then annex Mosquitia. The new nation is renamed the Mesoamerican Republic. Southeastern Nicaragua becomes the new vassal of Managua. The military and economy are heavily developed, and the newly united Sandinista-People's Socialist coalition consolidates its rule over the nation. The nationwid paramilitary is consolidated and further funded, enabling it to repress any dissent. The vast majority of the population is still supportive, especially as the government hikes welfare benefits and redistributes land in the former Nicaragua this year.
  • Dominion of Britannica: With the Americans at bay for the moment, Britannic forces begin an invasion of Scotland. Over 400,000 troops constituting the First Britannic Field Army pour into the northern rebel province. Artillery strikes take down radar fields and power stations, while airstrikes take down masses of hapless Scottish troops. Special forces and airbourne troops parachute behind enemy lines, taking out supply lines and command centers. Soldiers are ordered not to brutalize the locals, but collateral damage remains severe. Two more nuclear weapons of yields 33 and 45 kt are tested, and five more weapons are created. Study begins in the effects of a nuclear weapon on electromagnetic fields. Radiation and fallout from nuclear weapons is intensely studied. Economic and military improvement continues.
    • UPR Dip: We protest the invasion of Scotland and mobilize our armed forces to aid Scotland. The military decides to send additional arms and military tacticians and experts to aid the Scottish military.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved and repaired, and some new roadways are built. More Buddhist temples are also built.
  • German Reich: The Me Drachen and Me F-53 prototypes are completed and test flights begin. The Me B-53 is also finished to take over the role of a strategic bomber for the Luftwaffe. Improvements are made to the Panzer V as the Leopard I is still a few years away from completion. The Barrel is adjusted to accommodate 105 mm ammunition, while a stronger engine and wider tracks are attached to improve mobility. To complete the mechanization of the infantry the final APC models are completed and production of the P-53 , and P126 begin. Choppers are also produced in large quantities to aid ground forces. The G3, MP5, and MG53 are produced in massive amounts to replace the aging equipment from the 1940s. New anti-tank weapons enter development as well to answer the growing need for greater firepower. Naval expansion continues to meet the demands for coastal protection and to protect German interests abroad. Development of the hydrogen bomb, and IRBM's near completion with the project leaders estimating the new weapons will be finished by 1956. The space program continues with Germany sending another rocket into the atnosphere, preparations for sending a living organism into space continue (a dog). The computer continues to grow in importance for the military and the BND as its data storage capacities greatly exceed expectations and other uses are discovered such as quicker communication. Development of more modern stealth fighters begin. Medical research continues as breakthroughs continue. The first German nuclear power plant is built outside Dusseldorf, though it is kept closed until further tests can be made to determine its viability as a source of energy. Development of a faster train begins as the volume of people travelling from place to place grows and demand for quicker transportation does as well, this leads to research into trains pulled by magnetic rails (bullet trains a concept that was developed in this period OTL). The Universities of Berlin, Vienna and Munich increase funding for research in engineering, medecine, and physics to continue developing Germany's strong academic tradition and maintain Germany's place in the world as a leader in innovation, In the university of Berlin research into lasers begin. Cultural development continues as the democratization of the Reich comes to an end. The once powerful aristocracy slowly start to fade into the background of German politics as they become another interest group backing the conservative coalition. Many landowners and Industrialists begin modernizing their means of production to better exploit Germany's growing position within the Global economy. More factories and service companies open up creating jobs for thousands in areas previously ignored. Groups like Mauser-Mannlicher, Heckler and Koch, Krupp, and Bundeswagen continue to expand their shares in their respective market abroad. Efforts to incorporate Elbes-Lothringen's infrastructure begin, the region remains under occupation. However, curfew is relaxed and the occupation forces are told to be courteous to the locals. As Germany's economic interests in the Middle East a group of industrialists from Hamburg, Essen, and Berlin begin looking at the long forgotten Baghdad railway, a project abandoned by Germany in the aftermath of the great war. Adapting this idea the group conceives a new more ambitious project known as the Euro-Arabia connection, a transportation system that would directly link Saudi Arabia and the growing oil industry there with the Central Europe's largest industrial sectors. Despite the desire for this the group lacks the authority or influence to pull this off at the moment and goes to the government in Berlin to try to get political support. The Reichstag and high command take a great interest in the proposition and plans are made to begin talks with the governments of the Netherlands, Switzerland and Saudi Arabia to try to work out the ground work for project of such a scale, feelers are also sent out to the governments of Turkey, Syria, Palestine, and Hungary to find out their position on such an endeavour. Influence over Prague starts to grow as economic and military co-operation between the Reich, and Czechoslovakia continue. Berlin begins lobbying for an economic union with the Czechs though these efforts are kept to a minimum as Berlin does not wish to scare off its most important ally against Soviet expansion in Eastern Europe. The BND continues expanding its intelligence web abroad with greater focus being placed in the volatile Middle East, in the Balkans, and in China. With the rise of ethnic violence in Yugoslavia the BND sees an opportunity to make connections with the now persecuted Bosniaks and with the Croats who have long rivaled the Serbians. Berlin offers Oslo and Copenhagen free trade agreements in an effort to improve relations with its Nordic neighbors and to improve European economic co-operation (mod response please). Germany proposes a joint program with the Netherlands to develop a faster train to improve transportation throughout the lowlands and the rhine.
    • Norway Accepts. Sweden Accepts.
    • Brazil Dip: We request design blueprints for the B-53.
    • German Dip: Germany agrees to sell the blueprints to the B-53. 
    • German Dip: German companies request the right to begin international flights to Rio and San Pedro. 
    • South African Dip: South Africa is interested in purchasing all modern German weapons designs and blueprints, especially those related to rocketry and jet fighter design.
  • Iran: Offers a trade agreement to Egypt, Afghanistan and Pakistan, Pakistan is offer a defensive alliance against India. Negotiation with the Kurdish leader continue about the frontier. The Western idea continue to gain popularity among the young Iranian while the army grow more modern. 
    • Saudi Arabia asks for a non-aggression pact.
    • Iranian Dip: We accept the non-aggression pact and offer a trade agreement.
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur. The Soviets lock down the development of nuclear weapons and material, and the KGB track down and kill the man responsible, although they are too late to prevent his information from spreading. Harsher and more effective measures are taken to crack down on members of the government and military from leaking weapons or information that is classified. Some troops are sent to Cambodia, Laos, and Burma to aid in their endeavours and to help spread Communism in the region. Aid is also sent to Iraq and now Syria in efforts to aid the two states in minimizing their losses against opponents. We agree to reduce border tensions with Iran, and send aid to Iraq to handle any issue in the region.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. Finnish forces with aid from the Soviets crack down hard on dissent and resistance, and the full power of the state is used to bring and end to the forces of the insurgency. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 105,000 men, not including 10,000 German "Volunteers" under employment of the Saudi Government. Naval expansion continues. The Saudi Military continues to purchase arms from Germany, arming the expanding military with G3s and German made tanks. The Air force and navy are expanded as well, with new naval vessels being slated for creation in 1955. The Air force stands at 8000 men and 75 aircraft.
    • Kingdom of Greater Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase in its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 45,000 men. Improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. With Aden now under the  Yemeni government, the nation celebrates. The Capital is relocated to Aden, and efforts to fix the damage caused by the war begin.
    • Kingdom of Kuwait: The Nation sees an economic growth, using the large amount of oil in the region to sell off to foreign powers. The nations military sees an expansion to 1000 men, armed with newly purchased G3s. The nation continues to develop its industry.
    • Kingdom of Qatar: Under the Guidance of the Saudis, the nation continues to recover from the war. Preperations to use the nations large reserves of Natural gas and oil begin. 
    • Kingdom of Bahrain: Relatively unphased by the war, the new nation of Bahrain grows under the guidance of the Saudis. A small military force of 1000 men is formed. Preparations to create an oil industry on the island begin, tough it is expected to be tiny due to the nations small size.
  • Belgium: Properly, the military gains some more troops on the military base. But instead of paying attention to the Netherlands, the Wallonian army is still in control, likely to build a tower to watch for enemies to alert them. The industry is performing well as if it's in great connection of market prices.
  • China: Military and Economy are improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the re-introduction of Chinese land back into the Republic. We actively seek investors as well as increase tensions with Japan over the territory they have. 
  • Republic of Turkey: Tajdin Serefxan, the Third President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks and Kurds to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia, which were now amongst the most urbanized areas in Turkey. In comparison, Central and Eastern Anatolia were largely rural although major development programs over the past few years led to massive increase in urbanization; and particularly led to largescale immigration of Turks which drastically decreased the Kurd dominancy maintained over Eastern Anatolia. As far as energy was concerned, oil deposits discovered in Eastern Thrace and Northern Anatolian coast were mined. Turkey, in particular was a large producer of lignite which was largely mined from Eastern Anatolia. However, also keen on acquiring a source of energy which would be renewable; major dams were constructed throughout Turkey. Of significant notice was the Karababa Dam constructed the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and two fleet carriers, TCG Derman and TCG Solmaz. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy, etc, and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 700 aircraft. The Turkish infantry was heavily armed with Soviet AK-48 whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as AK-48 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made significant progress into nuclear research as an adequate amount of funding was given by the government. President Tajdin Serefxan visits Germany. 
    • Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Athens is reconstructed with new infrastructural reforms brought forward. 
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, six km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Turkish - Syrian Diplomacy: The hand of friendship is extended to Syria and the government is recognized. Moreover, Turkey offers an arms deal and an alliance to Syria. [Mod Response]
    • German Dip: The Kanzler receives Turkey's president and amongst the things discussed are the proposed plans to begin construction of a large transportation system through Anatolia linking it and the Middle East to Central Europe, and the possiblity of joint efforts to bring stability to the Balkans - an area riddled with ethnic and political instability. 
  • Brazil: The Brazilian nation continues to moderately expand economically. The overall nation shows good industrial and economic improvement with Santos officially growing economically for the first time since the fire. Brazil begins further infrastructural investment with the expansion of the highways through various cleared portions of the Amazons allowing for the first time an available round trip through the Amazons via car on the roadway. The Way this is supported is through various developing towns in between which are able to provide gas, lodging, etc. The Brazilian military begins to increase its capabilities as the new destroyers and cruisers begin to replace older ones as the older variants begin to be phased out in favor of newer models. The Brazilian rocketry research continues with a few tests of T-2 and T-3 rockets being used on tests sites in Brazil's countryside. The Brazilian population continues to expand modestly. The Navy undergoes a series of wargames putting two Fleet carriers up against each other. The Dom Pedro II is victorious and boasts an insanely efficient carrier fleet operation. The Brazilian marines adopt some of the new weaponry developed by IMBEL and other Brazilian arms industries, also bringing amphibious hybrid vehicles into the amphibious divisions. The Brazilian nuclear program in secret continues to develop with various facilities needed for a nuclear weapon. This development leads to a few breakthrough in nuclear technology with the scheduled 1955 date for acquisition remaining clear. The Brazilian Army and navy begin heavy consideration for helicopters judging their tactical and warmaking capabilities significant for the development of a good gunship aerial vehicle. The first designs are crude but are tested to work, and development of more effective designs for true military use begin to be developed. In all thoughts though the a helicopter propeled by a Turboshaft engine is considered. The Vargas doctrine is officially authorized as law within the Brazilian Federal Congress rather than a presidential recommendation after the success of the policy in Colombia. Brazil continues development of its oil reserves a decent amount with offshore oil rigs beginning to contribute greatly. The Brazilian fleet in the South Atlantic joined with the French fleet extend a massive blackout and umbrella over the South Atlantic leaving a total information blackout of the fleet with any planes not French or Brazilian entering the zone being ordered shot down or escorted out. The Brazilian admiral of the fleet is intrigued by the French claim to use nuclear weapons on South Africa. Brazil officially houses forces from France on its African Angola Base.
    • Colombia: Colombia continues to develop industrially as the new investment from Brazil into the coal mining and other mineral mining sectors begins to show a large increase in the Colombian economic development, the Invasion of the country forces a relative rebuilding of the nations infrastructure particularly road ways and a plan to link up roadways with the Venezuelan and Brazilian highway systems is put under way. Colombia officially enters into the economic treaties in South America securing a niche market for the continent based around coal. The Colombian nation officially rechristens its military as the Colombian Defence Force.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to develop its various independent industries particularly its Oil and refining capabilities. This has led to a relative increase in national employment as the government investment has begun the expansion of more than just the oil job market. The Venezuelan infrastructure commission is brought into existence looking to combine or look into combining Highways and railways with Brazil to create an unbroken system from Southern Brazil all the way to Ecuador. The Venezuelan navy begins construction of its first Light Carrier based on Brazilian designs purchasing equipment from Brazil to build and supply it.
  • Republic of Egypt: The Republic is officialy established, President Muhammad Naguib and Deputy Prime Minister Gamel Abdel Nasser retain their positions, Naguib and Nasser try to co-operate in order to make Egypt a rich nation (unlike OTL when they argued and put Naguib under house arrest). The first presidential and 15th parliamentary election will take place in three years, 1956. With the republic now established, we try to stop the spreading of the Egyptian part of the Sahara, and also sandstorms. Farming takes place around the Nile, providing the people with good food and health. We also try to urbanize, despite growing population. Generals and army leaders try to improve the Military, as we call upon major world powers to send us equipment, guns, air defenses, tanks, missile launchers and other, we also begin building military ships, and we try to build ships similar to the British W and Z-class destroyer, we therefore find bluprints of it, and order two or four of these ships to be built in Alexandria. In order to be rich, we establish some oil refineries (for crude oil) and oil platforms (for oil) in the Gulf of Suez, Alexandria, Suez Canal and other oil-containing landscapes, we promise to sell some of the oil and crude oil to Turkey, US, Germany and others, if only we find oil and crude oil. Meanwhile, we higly support the Saudi idea of the Middle East Union, in order to include more members. We also begin to produce a Jet figher, Delta wing, heavy strategic bombers (similar to this). However, we will only be able to produce three or four. However, with the amount of oil and crude oil in our seas (Gulf of Suez, etc) we maybe can produce a bit more. (Former) King Farouk II and members of his government are executed by firing squad.

  • USGN: With the war over before it truly began, all troops return to the country. While Germany and Britannica celebrate the victory, the Dutch find no pride in this war, and hope this is the last time we combat France. Mil and eco. Our industry benefits greatly from the Iron Rhine. The G3 is adopted as the main assault rifle, and we contribute to the research of the Leopard. We get our first own nuclear weapon (I already know I'm gonna get some shit about this, but it's because of my agreement with Germany, which grants me access to all equipment and weapons Germany has). We recognize the independence of Scotland. In honour of our PATO membership, we declare war on the Dominion of Britannica. No moves are made however, and the fleet is ordered to stay in the ports. This year, a small group of 18 year old new signups start a special program, called Griffin. They are trained and specialized for espionage, with the eventual goal of becoming our special forces. Their training is planned to take five years, and thus it will finish in 1957. We propose a plan to Germany: a passenger train, passing through the major cities of our nations, with a fixed course until Berlin, where it splits off into separate different courses. (This plan is in my sandbox, I'm gonna be linking it to Nk)
    • ​German Dip: Germany agrees and offers to bring the Netherlands into the Euro-Asia connection project, and to jointly fund the train line Rotterdam has planned.
  • UPR: The capital is decided to be Montevideo. The fleet in the North Atlantic lands 1000 marines into Scotland in support of their military with 20 tanks. The soldiers are in the nation to train the Scottish military. Another 20 medium tanks are finished for the Army, and 12 more jets are given to France. The carrier is completed and turned over to the French Navy. More assault rifles are finished, and the Special Forces request to purchase 500 G3 assault rifles. Economic development continues, and trade with Germany picks up. Due to the Britannica Navy operating in the region, the Navy orders several ships to defend the civilian fleet. The Navy receives another 20 helicopters. Some in the government are debating to declare war on Britannia. (Mil/Eco Turn)
    • German Dip: Germany agrees to sell the G3 rifles.
  • Yugoslavia: Jovanovic enters a deal with Germany. He enters Yugoslavia into their influence, including economic trade and infrastructure, as well as a de facto alliance. We continue our arrest and holding of Bosniaks, using them as free labor to build industry. In exchange for entering their political and economic influence, they invest in our economy, helping us industrialize. We ask Germany to help improve our technology. We do, however, continue trade with Britannia, as we would like to stay neutral in that war. We improve our economy and military.
  • South Africa: South African troops march into the cities of Brazzaville and Yaoundé, capturing and expelling the French authorities there, and replacing them with South African military governors. The SADF hand out ANC pamphlets to the locals, detailing the lives they would have under South African leadership. Contrasting the promises of the ANC to the way in which the French once governed the colony, the locals are inspired to assist the South Africans in their occupation and incorporation of the territory in the union of nations South Africa is building. With a long record of success to back it up, the ANC is able to win the hearts and minds of many local residents, even promising to end the feuds between the tribal nations within the former French Equatorial Africa. While the SADF continues to push on to capturing more territories, the ANC's local workers begin work on dealing with the old conflicts between the tribes. While many are ended through mediated talks by South Africa, others require force to end the bloodshed between tribal groups, helping the government win the respect of others as they end centuries old conflicts. With peace held above them, many tribal elders come to terms with the South African government's requests, seeking to pass on a better life to the youth in their tribes, and work toward something all can benefit from. Back home, the expansion of the local industries continues as the government sponsors several businesses seeking to develop the nation's shipbuilding, telecommunications, automotive, and chemical industries. Several factories are built in the cities of Johannesburg, Durban, and Port Elizabeth, to assist in the expansion of these industries. The military designs several new combat vehicles, such as the Luislang Mk.I medium tank, the Tier jet fighter, and the Perdebye jet bomber, which is expected to replace the older versions of their respective designs. Of considerable note is the military's introduction of a jet interceptor, the Soeker interceptor, designed for the interception of nuclear-capable bombers, in light of the vast number of nuclear weapons being produced across the globe. Currently, five Perdebye jet bombers and 12 Tier jet fighters and one Soeker interceptor, have been delivered to the military. All of the air force's old piston engine fighter craft are decommissions and sold off to any buyers in need of fighter craft. The population expands by 4-5% and the economy itself by 4.4%, a generally stable growth period. The University of Cape Town announces its plans to begin work on a prototype magnetic drum calculator, which the university plans to use in future technological developments. Elsewhere, the government of South Africa begins work on laying down a political organization that will be able to better govern the new lands outside of South Africa, with the name of the new organization the Organization of African Unity or the OAU.
    • Namibia: Namibia continues to expand its local industries, funding the expansion of major settlements around the mining centers of the nation. Elsewhere, the Namibian Defense Forces are expanded to assist in the defense of the country. The developments of the SANEC continues to help in the expansion of the government's nuclear weapons program. Two tons of fissile material are produced and shipped out of the nation into South Africa for safekeeping.
    • Zimbabwe: Zimbabwe expands its industrial centers in Harare and Bulawayo, with special focus given to the development of steel and processed food factories for the benefit of South Africa's self-sufficiency program. The education of the nation's population continues, and the employment of women in the workforce continues as usual.
    • Southern Angola: The ANC requests a report on the progress of the population's literacy growth, with the requested report showing a growth of the literacy rate from 15% to 35%. Additional resources are provided to the local government to help increase that number to 50% by 1960 and then to 70% by 1965. The military of Southern Angola expands its fortifications along the border, and continues to train in preparation for deployment into French Equatorial Africa to assist with the garrisoning of the territory.
    • Lesotho and Swaziland: Industrial expansion in Lesotho and Swaziland continue under the supervision of the South African government. The defense forces of the two states are expanded in their combat capabilities, allowing the union states to assist in the wider protection of the Union of South Africa.
    • South African Island Territories: The economy and the industries of the island territories are improved and expanded by the local government.
  • Australia: Economy and Military are improved. The railway connecting Adelaide and Perth, passing through Port Augusta, is completed.
    • Papua: Mil/Eco turn.
    • Indonesia: Mil/Eco turn.
  • France: The French continue rebuilding our infrastructure and military in the northern provinces. With the English's constant bombardment of the northern provinces, we begin building air force bases a good distance out of their range. We also continue building up anti-aircraft and anti-naval batteries off the northern coast to defend from further raids by the English air force and navy, as orders are given to open fire on any British military aircraft and naval vessel that is seen within their line of sight. Those three million in northern France continue training and rebuilding Northern France to help the infrastructure. We, however, move the rebuilding of our navy to the Western and Southern coasts of France and the North African bases. A large majority of the French navy is sent to fight the British out of Canadian owned Gibraltar to secure safe passage out of the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, as substantial number of troops are in Africa trying to hold off the advancing South African soldiers. Our nuclear arsenal is currently up to 15 nuclear weapons ranging from the lowest of 20KT to the highest being 25KT. We sell three nuclear weapons to the Argentineans, in a trade for an aircraft carrier, a dozen fighter jets per year, and oil. Bringing our nuclear arsenal back to 12. Meanwhile, we continue our support of PATO against the English government, and even wish for admittance into the organization, after our last attempts in the mid 40s. The rest of our navy joins with Brazilian naval vessels and order South Africa to leave French colonies, or else it will experience the first use of nuclear weaponry launched on a nation. As the South Africans had not headed or warnings to leave our African colonies, we proceed to drop three nuclear weapons ranging from 20 to 25KT on the Johannesburg-Soweto-Pretoria metropolitan area, Durban, and finally one on Cape Town. An estimated 175,000 South Africans are expected to be killed and roughly 282,000 are expected to suffer injries. The results of the fallout by these weapons has not been calculated. (Mil/Econ turn)
    • USR Dip: We are shocked by the rapid escalation of the war, and are unhappy with the nuking of South Africa, but will not condemn it.
    • ​You know, you would have to get those bombers into South African airspace before you could drop the nukes. You have no airbases in the region, you have no carriers (Daes never agreed to sell you any carriers), your closest airbases in Africa are too far away from South Africa. You would also have to get past my air defenses, which I have had on high alert, as well as my jet fighters. Never mind the fact that even if you had a carrier, it would have to get past my navy too. How you would even make it to Johannesburg in the heart of my nation and its defenses is beyond me. ~Viva
    • I sold him a carrier and 36 jet fighters. ~Dae
    • Cape Town and Durban are definitely hit. Johannesburg wouldn't get hit, though. Seems very unlikely, especially when considering its geographical position. Also, why are you nuking Durban? It has no real military importance. Port Elizabeth seems more plausible. ~Tech
    • That fixes one issue. Now how did he get that carrier with a nuke past the South African and British blockades and defenses? Also, half of my fleet and its carrier-based air force are based out of Cape Town, with other ships based out of the Seychelles and Mauritius, which that carrier would have to pass to reach South Africa no matter what. Unlike Japan, my air force hasn't been destroyed, and I have ample time to pin-point the lone French carrier and bomber approaching my second-largest city. Just because you can have a nuke doesn't mean it can be used in an implausible way. His fleet is still shot to pieces, and he'd still have to get what remains of it to South Africa pass the British and South African navies. ~Viva
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary many years ago. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • The United States continues to fight in the war. More nukes are built etc. The nation moves more into a wartime state. Economy does all right. The first H-bomb is tested and is a success. The first atomic artillery shell is fired.
    • Mexico expands its military and economy. A generally average year in Mexico.
  • Dravida Nadu: We first begin industrializing by convincing our public to give up their farms to move to the factories. We take full advantage by launching new towns beside our natural resources causing massive movement from young people. As a democracy, our leader C.N Annadurai was elected in for leading the war effort although he is going through his second term. With his revolutionary spirit, he presses claims on both Hyderabad and Ceylon since they both have people of Dravidian Languages. Although the National language is Tamil, we instituted regional languages of Kodava, Tulu, Malayalam and Kannada. We also request blueprints from Germany for tanks and weaponry along with an alliance.

1953.5

Algo report: Britannica conquers Scotland. South Africa defeats France in Equatorial Africa. Life goes on.

Both America and Britannica go through severe economic downturns as the effects of the war and diruption of trade catches up with both. Both Dow and Nasdaq take 19% hits, while similar effects are seen in Britannica. Anti-war protests begin to rage both across London and Washington, DC. Over 500,000 protestors march in New York.

The French nuke headed towards Johannesburg is shot down, although the other two impact. France loses 50% of its southern fleet in the process.

  • Republic of Turkey: Tajdin Serefxan, the Third President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks and Kurds to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia, which were now amongst the most urbanized areas in Turkey. In comparison, Central and Eastern Anatolia were largely rural although major development programs over the past few years led to massive increase in urbanization; and particularly led to largescale immigration of Turks which drastically decreased the Kurd dominancy maintained over Eastern Anatolia. As far as energy was concerned, oil deposits discovered in Eastern Thrace and Northern Anatolian coast were mined. Turkey, in particular was a large producer of lignite which was largely mined from Eastern Anatolia. However, also keen on acquiring a source of energy which would be renewable; major dams were constructed throughout Turkey. Of significant notice was the Karababa Dam constructed the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and two fleet carriers, TCG Derman and TCG Solmaz. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy, etc, and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 700 aircraft. The Turkish infantry was heavily armed with Soviet AK-48 whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as AK-48 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made significant progress into nuclear research as an adequate amount of funding was given by the government. Turkey attacks Lebanon to acquire greater control over the Gulf of Iskenderun
    • Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Athens is reconstructed with new infrastructural reforms brought forward. 
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, six km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Turkish - Syrian Diplomacy: The hand of friendship is extended to Syria and the government is recognized. Moreover, Turkey offers an arms deal and an alliance to Syria. Given the war-mongering policy of Saudi Arabia, Syria is informed that it is quite possible for them to be the Saudis next target. [Mod Response]
    • Turkish - German Diplomacy: We accept that offer of yours which I can't exactly remember but it was like roads so yeah. We accept 
  • Mesoamerica and its provinces of Managua, Belize and El Salvador improve military and economy. Recruitment for the military spikes, increasing to a regular force of 60,000. The government focuses on mass-producing high-quality but cheap small arms and artillery rather than more expensive and complex things like tanks and fighters for the military. To make up for its relative lack of armour, the military develops a new series of anti-tank mines and rockets, which enter production this year. Oil production in Belize keeps rising, fuelling economic growth of around 4% and providing the government with a budgetary surplus. Seeking to lift its global importance and acquire a greater share of world trade, plans for a Nicaraguan Canal are drawn up this year. The government recognizes this will be hugely impractical without foreign technical expertise and funding, so it requests foreign investors for the canal, offering a stake and free access to it, as well as a portion of all tariffs and other revenues.
    • Britannica Diplomacy: We are very interested in this canal.
    • Mesoamerican Diplomacy: If Britannica will provide funding and technical help, it will receive unlimited access to it, as well as half of all future revenues from the canal.
    • Britannica Diplomacy: Done.
    • Now short on investors, Mesoamerica offers the Danish, Swedish and Norwegian governments each a 15% stake in the canal, unlimited access, and 10% of future revenues in return for assistance with funding and construction. MOD RESPONSE PLEASE
  • Dominion of Britannica: With the quick victory over Scotland, Supreme Chancellor Reacher reaches (lel) a decision regarding the rebellions province. In the end, Reacher votes 1-0 on giving Scotland its independence, and proposes the creation of a Britannic Trade Association for regulation of trade between Britannica, Scotland, and Ireland. Officials reach out to Mesoamerica, seeking an alliance with the growing Central American power. Reacher calls for the end of the war between South Africa and France. An offer is also made to South Africa regarding the purchase of Britannica's African colonies.
    • ​South African Dip: South Africa would be more than happy to end hostilities with the French, as well as purchase the British colonies in Africa. We are prepared to pay $535 million, a price we deem sufficent for the territories.
    • Mesoamerican Dip: Agrees to an alliance with Britannica. Due to concern expressed by certain extremely powerful neighbours, Mesoamerica must unfortunately break the alliance and canal deal.
  • Dravida Nadu: We first begin industrializing by convincing our public to give up their farms to move to the factories. We take full advantage by launching new towns beside our natural resources causing massive movement from young people. As a democracy, our leader C.N Annadurai was elected in for leading the war effort although he is going through his second term. With his revolutionary spirit, he presses claims on both Hyderabad and Ceylon since they both have people of Dravidian Languages. Although the National language is Tamil, we instituted regional languages of Kodava, Tulu, Malayalam and Kannada. We also request blueprints from Germany for tanks and weaponry along with an alliance.
    • Britannica Diplomacy: Let's talk about weapons and alliances.
    • German Dip: Germany will sell Dravidia weapons and tanks. However, it can not provide blueprints at the moment. Germany also agrees to an alliance though it would only be able to provide limited support in the case of a war.
    • Dravida Nadu: We accept German and Britannic conditions but also we want to purchase some ships.
  • South Africa (OAU next turn): South Africans are outraged by the French attack, with millions marching in the streets demanding vengence. However, President Lutuli urges calm, stating that the damage caused by the two 25kt nuclear attacks, though devastating, were not as destructive as stated by the French. A tally of the death reveals a death toll of 150,000 individuals. Cape Town was deemed lucky, as the bomb itself landed near the northern edge of the city, destroying large areas of the housing projects where most of the dead came from. Durban took a more direct hit, with more than 30,000 dead reported by the government. Memorials are set up across the country, though the people celebrate the victory against the French as ample payment for the death inflicted upon the South Africans. Rebuilding begins immediately, with government providing monetary gifts to the families of the dead, as well as assigning considerable funding to the reconstruction effort, and thousands flock to the region to volunteer within the rebuilding effort. Elsewhere, the South African military begins work on mopping up the French resistance in French Equatorial Africa, with considerable help from the local population, which leads the SADF personnel to hidden French bases in the jungles. ANC members already serving as politicians in French Equatorial Africa are installed as the local governors in that region, and the territory of French Equatorial Africa renamed Cameroon, with the capital city moved up into Yaoundé. A census is planned for next year, along with all government plans and priorities to be placed before the central government. The government of South Africa and the other union states formally establish the Organization of African Union (OAU) to replace the Union of Southern Africa as the overarching political entity governing their affairs. The OAU's mandates are to promote unity and solidarity between the African member states, and serve as the collective voice for the continent's nations, helping to secure its economic and political security; assisting in the co-ordination of all political efforts to develop a better life for the African people; defend the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of its member states; and eradicate all forms of imperialism and colonialism from the African homeland. Other goals for the OAU will include developing the standard of living within all member states, settling arguments between members, and ensuring the basic human rights of its citizens. All member states will be referred to as republics, and will all be assigned their own defense forces from the overall Union Defense Force, which will serve as the collective military force for the OAU. Integration of South Africa, Namibia, Lesotho, and Swaziland into a single state takes place, while Southern Angola and Zimbabwe are left as independent member states for the time being.
    • Zimbabwe: The expansion of the local industries continues, though much of the material produced is sent to help rebuild Cape Town and Durban. The development of additional industries such as those related to chemcial processing are built in the city of Harare. The Zimbabwe Defense Force is reorganized in accordance with the OAU's new military standards, and the new force is to consist of 67,194 personnel, 120 aircraft, and 500 tanks.
    • Southern Angola: The government of Southern Angola continues work on expanding the economy and infrastructure of the nation.
    • UPR Dip: We are unhappy with the use of nuclear weapons, and, although we have disputes with South Africa, we do offer aid to help the citizens harmed by the nuclear bombs, by sending food and medical personnel.
    • South African Dip: South Africa thanks the UPR for its humanitarian aid, and sends its warmest regards to the Argentinian people.
    • 1. People wouldn't demand vengeance, they'd demand an end. They'd be shitting their pants. This is the first time a nuke is ever used. South Africans are gonna be afraid and wanting peace. 2. You're trying to tell me that while France's estimation is false, yours is true? I'm not intervening on that, another mod can determine which is true, it just seems sorta weird
    • In all honesty you lost the war at this point, there is no way you can hold your gains with two nukes on top of you, the phycological impact alone would end the war in french favor. -Feud
    • Nice try, but this isn't WWII. South Africa wasn't ravaged like Japan had been, nor has South Africa lost the same number of people in the conflict. Unlike Japan, South Africa actually beat its opponent, and is walking away from the conflict with more than it went into the war with. Japan was losing virturally every battle against the United States, and its defeat was known to be inevitable on both sides. South Africa was winning and did win (mind you, South Africa won the war before the bomb was dropped, so my people don't want peace because they already had it), didn't suffer catastrophic losses, destroyed half of the enemy force attacking its homeland, and shot down the plane trying to bomb its largest city. The loss of one small city and part of another when the damage could have been much worse is deemed an acceptable loss for the gains that were won. So trying to pull the strings and manipulate how my people are feeling to push some dumb agenda isn't going to fly. Also, France's estimation is wrong since France doesn't have people on the ground actually counting the casualties. I'm not stupid and I know exactly what you're trying to push for. So I can and I will hold onto my gains since there is nothing preventing me from doing so. ~Viva
  • German Reich: The Me Drachen and Me F-53 prototypes prove very effective and production of the second generation fighters begin to replace the older models. Planes that are phased out are sold to German allies mainly China, Saudi Arabia and Syria. The Me B-53 is also finished to take over the role of a strategic bomber for the Luftwaffe. Improvements are made to the Panzer V as the Leopard I is still a few years away from completion. The Barrel is adjusted to accommodate 105 mm ammunition, while a stronger engine and wider tracks are attached to improve mobility. To complete the mechanization of the infantry the final APC models are completed and production of the P-53 , and P126 begin. Choppers are also produced in large quantities to aid ground forces. The G3, MP5, and MG53 are produced in massive amounts to replace the aging equipment from the 1940s. New anti-tank weapons enter development as well to answer the growing need for greater firepower. Development of tactical artillery begins, with a prototype for a nuclear artillery piece being developed. Naval expansion continues to meet the demands for coastal protection and to protect German interests abroad. Development of the hydrogen bomb, and IRBM's near completion with the project leaders estimating the new weapons will be finished by 1956, research into the secondary effects of a nuclear explosion begin indepth mainly their effect on the organic material and their effect on electronics. The space program continues with Germany sending another rocket into the atnosphere, preparations for sending a living organism into space continue (a dog). The computer continues to grow in importance for the military and the BND as its data storage capacities greatly exceed expectations and other uses are discovered such as quicker communication. Development of more modern stealth fighters begin. Medical research continues as breakthroughs continue. The first German nuclear power plant is built outside Dusseldorf, though it is kept closed until further tests can be made to determine its viability as a source of energy. Development of a faster train begins as the volume of people travelling from place to place grows and demand for quicker transportation does as well, this leads to research into trains pulled by magnetic rails (bullet trains a concept that was developed in this period OTL). The Universities of Berlin, Vienna and Munich increase funding for research in engineering, medicine, and physics to continue developing Germany's strong academic tradition and maintain Germany's place in the world as a leader in innovation. At the University of Berlin research into lasers begin. Cultural development continues as the democratization of the Reich comes to an end. The once powerful aristocracy slowly start to fade into the background of German politics as they become another interest group backing the conservative coalition. Many landowners and Industrialists begin modernizing their means of production to better exploit Germany's growing position within the Global economy. More factories and service companies open up creating jobs for thousands in areas previously ignored. Groups like Mauser-Mannlicher, Heckler and Koch, Krupp, and Bundeswagen continue to expand their shares in their respective market abroad. Efforts to incorporate Elbes-Lothringen's infrastructure begin, the region remains under occupation. However, curfew is relaxed and the occupation forces are told to be courteous to the locals.  As Germany's economic interests in the Middle East a group of industrialists from Hamburg, Essen and Berlin begin looking at the long forgotten Baghdad railway, a project abandoned by Germany in the aftermath of the great war. Adapting this idea the group conceives a new more ambitious project known as the Euro-Arabia connection, a transportation system that would directly link Saudi Arabia and the growing oil industry there with the Central Europe's largest industrial sectors. Despite the desire for this the group lacks the authority or influence to pull this off at the moment and goes to the government in Berlin to try to get political support. The Reichstag and high command take a great interest in the proposition and plans are made to begin talks with the governments of the Netherlands, Switzerland and Saudi Arabia to try to work out the ground work for project of such a scale, feelers are also sent out to the governments of Turkey, Syria, Palestine, and Hungary to find out their position on such an endeavour. Influence over Prague starts to grow as economic and military co-operation between the Reich and Czechoslovakia continue. Berlin begins lobbying for an economic union with the Czechs though these efforts are kept to a minimum as Berlin does not wish to scare off its most important ally against Soviet expansion in Eastern Europe. The BND continues expanding its intelligence web abroad with greater focus being placed in the volatile Middle East, in the Balkans, and in China. With the rise of ethnic violence in Yugoslavia the BND sees an opportunity to make connections with the now persecuted Bosniaks and with the Croats who have long rivaled the Serbians. With the French bombing of South Africa, Berlin passes a law that allows for the construction of a series of underground bunkers meant to protect Germans in case of a nuclear attack. As the British and American economies enter recession Germany takes advantage to fill in the gap in the global economy. International flights to other major German allies and trading partners begin. Trade with Scandinavia increases extensively with the signing of free trade agreements. 
  • Spain: We begin to build a couple of factories outside Madrid - one civilian and one military. We demand that Brazil leave Mozambique as it is a Spanish Colony and Spanish Territory. We give you six months to evacuate from our colony.
    • Portugal: We begin to retrain the Army, to handle fighting an overwhelming force. We also with to secretly to talk the Spanish about unifying with Portugal.
    • Brazil Dip: We were given the base by a stable and well respected government as well as a PATO ally, please calm down.
    • Spanish Diplomacy: We accept.
    • Britannica Diplomacy: We offer the latest designs on jet fighters as well as training manuals and officers to help train your military.
    • Spanish Diplomacy: We accept.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 105,000 men, not including 10,000 German "Volunteers" under employment of the Saudi Government. Naval expansion continues. The Saudi Military continues to purchase arms from Germany, arming the expanding military with G3s and German made tanks. The Air force and navy are expanded as well, with new naval vessels being slated for creation in 1955. The Air force stands at 8000 men and 75 aircraft.
    • Kingdom of Greater Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase in its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 45,000 men. Improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. With Aden now under the  Yemeni government, the nation celebrates. The Capital is relocated to Aden, and efforts to fix the damage caused by the war begin.
    • Kingdom of Kuwait: The Nation sees an economic growth, using the large amount of oil in the region to sell off to foreign powers. The nations military sees an expansion to 1000 men, armed with newly purchased G3s. The nation continues to develop its industry.
    • Kingdom of Qatar: Under the guidance of the Saudis, the nation continues to recover from the war. Preperations to use the nations large reserves of natural gas and oil begin. 
    • Kingdom of Bahrain: Relatively unphased by the war, the new nation of Bahrain grows under the guidance of the Saudis. A small military force of 1000 men is formed. Preparations to create an oil industry on the island begin, tough it is expected to be tiny due to the nations small size.
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home. The issue of the 300 dead Soviet soldiers angers the military and the government greatly, and the government does what it can to address all issues of the problem. New regulations and procedures are required at ammunition and vehicle storehouses in order to prevent such drastic leakage of weapons and vehicles from disappearing. Furthermore, the central government has the NKVD search through all aspects of the military to determine who could be behind such criminal actions. A few suspected culprits are rounded up and either sent to gulags or shot, although the investigation is still ongoing. In order to deal with rebellious Poles and Finns, the Polish Occupation Zone is reformatted as a new republic within the Soviet Federal system, and the establishment of a loyal Communist government is put into place. Training of national and loyal police forces in both Finland and Poland is done to help the military deal with any incidents. It is expected with the greater regulations and higher government involvement the rebels will either cease their activity or otherwise become more easier to deal with. Domestically, the government carries on with its program of industrialization and continued modernization of the Soviet economy and military. More factories are built in varied places around the country to produce goods for both the military and the people. Technology-wise, the Soviet Union continues to march forward, eager to catch up with the rest of the world. The AK-48 assault rifle is finished this year, and after extraordinary performance in weapons trials is ordered into full production. Better tanks and now jet planes are also produced in order to keep the theory of deep operations up to date and in full effect, while experimental rocket prototypes are also constructed. More ships, namely battleships, destroyers, cruisers, submarines, and a few aircraft carriers are also built over a period of time to help the Soviet navy retain at least some degree of parity with the rest of the world. Chemical weapons are also continuously produced, typically either short range rockets or artillery shells. Soviet scientists announce that they have finished the construction of a nuclear device, and that they expect to be able to detonate it next year. In the meantime, a weapons testing range for that very purpose is constructed in the steppes of Kazakhstan. On the foreign front, the Soviets reach out to Britain, Afghanistan and the Khmer Rouge, offering weapons and general co-operation in military and diplomatic endeavors. (I asked a mod about this and Afghanistan does agree, I assume the others would as well since they are both Communist, if not, let me know.) Turkey is also provided the weapons and vehicles that they asked for over a period of time. Attempts to influence the Communist parties in Iraq and Pakistan, eager to increase influence in that area of the world, also increase in number. Noting the increased movement and training of Iranian troops and the construction of Iranian border fortifications along the Iranian-Soviet border, the Soviet Union does likewise, building fortifications and moving more troops to the border in case any incidents occur. The Soviets lock down the development of nuclear weapons and material, and the KGB track down and kill the man responsible, although they are too late to prevent his information from spreading. Harsher and more effective measures are taken to crack down on members of the government and military from leaking weapons or information that is classified. Some troops are sent to Cambodia, Laos, and Burma to aid in their endeavours and to help spread Communism in the region. Aid is also sent to Iraq and now Syria in efforts to aid the two states in minimizing their losses against opponents. We agree to reduce border tensions with Iran, and send aid to Iraq to handle any issue in the region.
    • Mongolia: Mongolia continues to make some effort to modernize and industrialize, although the typically rural landscape and population has made this considerably difficult to do effectively. The military continues to train with the Soviets, and more and more Soviet surplus is provided to the Mongolian military to help them stay up to date with weapons and supplies. 
    • Finland: The military and local government joins the Soviets in trying to crack down on rebellious Finns, and efforts are also made to try to bring them back into the fold peacefully if at all possible. Rebuilding the country is still underway, and more services are being provided to the Finns with each passing month. It is hoped that through these efforts, the Soviets will be able to earn the loyalty or at the very least the obedience of the Finns and enable their sway over the country. Finnish forces with aid from the Soviets crack down hard on dissent and resistance, and the full power of the state is used to bring and end to the forces of the insurgency. 
    • Baltic Federal People's Republic: The military and police also perform a bit of a crackdown in order to prevent the sort of unrest or rebellion seen in Finland and Poland over the past few months. The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • Iran: We offer the Saudi a trade agreement. Factory start to be build in great number to develop the economy and reduce unemployment. The jet become the main propulsion of the air force. We are shock by the power of the nuke and many voice in the government pressure the Shah to develop it while the Shah itself know that if any action in the Middle East get it, it will resume the previous tension. We propose a treaty of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons to prevent nuclear annihilation to any every interest country.
  • UPR: The military continues supporting Scotland, selling them more light tanks and some in the government propose selling them the two battleships. The armed forces withdraw combat forces from intervening in Britannia. Military officials continue to support France in South Africa and send ships to support Brazil. There is some dissent in the government over the French use of nuclear weapons against South Africa. Work continues on nuclear weapons, analyzing technical data from the nuke purchased from France. It helps speed up the design and manufacturing of a nuclear bomb. The Army looks to purchase 30 helicopters. The military begins to stockpile chemical weapons. Integration of the various armed forces continues. Work on a new jet fighter begins. Seeing the British involvement in Guatemala, the government is concerned, and the special forces are ordered in secret to plan possible intervention in the nation to prevent the British from gaining a foothold. (Mil/Eco Turn)
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary many years ago. The government purchase several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Belgium: We improve military and economy. The investment is decent with economy. The tanks are continuing to built in militaty bases, the Wallonia is currently a rump state and under German protection still. Instead of more talks with other plans to discuss.
  • USGN: With the war over before it truly began, all troops return to the country. While Germany and Britannica celebrate the victory, the Dutch find no pride in this war, and hope this is the last time we combat France. Mil and eco. Our industry benefits greatly from the Iron Rhine. The G3 is adopted as the main assault rifle, and we contribute to the research of the Leopard. We get our first own nuclear weapon (I already know I'm gonna get some shit about this, but it's because of my agreement with Germany, which grants me access to all equipment and weapons Germany has). We recognize the independence of Scotland. In honour of our PATO membership, we declare war on the Dominion of Britannica. No moves are made however, and the fleet is ordered to stay in the ports. This year, a small group of 18 year old new signups start a special program, called Griffin. They are trained and specialized for espionage, with the eventual goal of becoming our special forces. Their training is planned to take five years, and thus it will finish in 1957. We propose a plan to Germany: a passenger train, passing through the major cities of our nations, with a fixed course until Berlin, where it splits off into separate different courses. (This plan is in my sandbox, I'm gonna be linking it to Nk.)
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved and repaired, and some new roadways are built.
  • You're Communist now. What's with the Buddhist temples?
  • I know I'm Communist, I had the Communists take over back in 1952.0. With Buddhist temples, I guess I built enough of them, so I'll take it out. -Seiga
  • Communists are anti-religious, so not only would you not be building more, the ones you have would probably be shut down, the monks persecuted, and people encouraged to become Atheists.
  • Yes, but many people in Thailand are Buddhists (over 90 percent of the population), so destroying Buddhist temples would cause an uproar. Although I understand they wouldn't build more, and will stop in that aspect. Also, there will still be Buddhists, and not everyone can/would become Atheist, even with the propaganda. So becoming fully Atheist is not possible. -Seiga
  • In the United States, people are pissed off at the unpopular president. Due to poor planning and foresight, England managed to repel the American forces by a fluke and as the rest of PATO is not backing the United States, Dewey becomes even more unpopular. Toward the end of the year, the Republicans attempt to distance themselves from the current administration and the Democrats attempt to impeach him. The Senate votes to impeach Dewey, causing him to resign. His successor, former Vice President Warren, declares that he will end the war his predecessor started. In other news, the depression makes even more people pissed off and people are pissed off in general. There are attempts to create new infrastructure projects which will create jobs.
  • Sweden: The newest elected president of the Scandinavian Nazi Party, Göran Assar Oredsson, who won the elections due to people wishes to ally with the German Reich and the increasing rates of the Nazism in Sweden, asked for a unification of all Scandinavian nations (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland) at which they agreed. The new nation was named Scandinavia. The nation of Scandinavia asks the German Reich for an alliance.
  • Other countries cannot just agree with you, you need a moderator to agree for them. Furthermore, Nazism is dead in Germany, so why would it magically appear in Sweden?
  • Sorry, then, didn't know that I am new to map games...

1954.0

The recession in America and Britain dies down as trade resumes and the war ends.

The radical Hindu Maharaj regime in central India declares that all westerners are infidels and must be expelled from the nation. Over ten thousand Britannic people are forcefully evicted from the nation, and their belongings confiscated and sold by the government. Many other nations are affected, although none as heavily as Britannica.

Drug wars begin to flare up in Mexico as the American occupation cleared out all that was there of the police. Two American soldiers are killed in the crossfire between two major cartels, the Guadalajara Cartel and Los Zetas.

Don't just say shit for the sake of saying shit. These cartels were created in the 80s/90s.

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved and repaired, and some new roadways are built.
  • Soviet Union: The Soviet Union continues to expand and grow, and this year brings some important changes to the Soviet military and policy, both abroad and at home.

The government also helps the country to rebuild, another reason for the merger of the three Baltic countries. 
  • China: Military and economy are improved, seeing as hostilities with Japan has ceased and an agreement as been reached. As the Republic of China starts to centralize, we also start developing several major Chinese cities, and prepare economically for the re-introduction of Chinese land back into the Republic. We actively seek investors as well as increase tensions with Japan over the territory they have rightfully belonging to China. 
  • Belgium: Spaak seeks the plan of bulding the Great Wall of Wallonia, which it could pulse a defence with other enemies. The infrastructure does relatively easy, but the economy is gaining and gaining toward
  • Sweden: The new Swedish government gives the people more civil rights, making them happier and many reforms in the economy take place making the economy more prosperous, we begin industrialize creating more jobs and accepting many immigrants from all across Europe (even the Soviet Union), the army of Sweden becames to modernize to keep up with the world. The army consists of two hundred thousand men and women who have volunteered to serve their country. 2000 tanks have been ordered from the German Reich, the Soviet Union or are starting to built in military bases and weapon factories. We also ordered one aircraft carrier, two frigates and 100 airplanes. We ask the German Reich for an alliance.
    • Sorry, but three things I want to point out. I can't see the people giving more power to the crown. Second, why would the other Scandinavian countries agree to a merger when there is no need, and I don't see many immigrants coming from Central Europe. At least not Germany and the Netherlands where the economy is booming.  ALso, on another note I can't even understand half the things you right. XD With Blood and Iron (talk) 12:04, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
    • Sorry again, gonna edit those things. I think I fixed it. Correct me if I am wrong.
  • Iran: offers Pakistan and Afghanistan a trade agreement and an alliance against India. The Iranian navy go under a program of modernization. More factories are build in the major city in an effort to diversify the economy. Secularism become accept or tolerated.
  • Saudi Arabia: Military and economy improve. With the discovery of oil, the Saudi economy continues to grow. We continue to ask for nations to engage in development deals for oil, and oil-based infrastructure continues to grow. Industry continues to grow at a slow rate. Research into modern weaponry begins. Military stands at 105,000 men, not including 10,000 German "Volunteers" under employment of the Saudi Government. Naval expansion continues. The Saudi military continues to purchase arms from Germany, arming the expanding military with G3s and German made tanks. The Air force and navy are expanded as well, with new naval vessels being slated for creation in 1955. The Air force stands at 8000 men and 78 aircraft, with new aircraft coming in from Germany.Ibn Saud passes away, and we request that Germany, the US, Turkey, and Eygpt's leaders attend the funeral. King Saud takes the throne, and continues to increase the military's power. The Saudis begin to push their oil prices down to undercut Egyptian and Brazilian Oil
    • Kingdom of Greater Yemen: The military and economy improve. The nation sees a relative increase in its industry, mostly in the Oil Section. Military stands at 45,000 men. Improvements in military tech continue as well, using weapon blueprints to produce arms for the military. With Aden now under the  Yemeni government, the nation celebrates. The Capital is relocated to Aden, and efforts to fix the damage caused by the war begin.
    • Kingdom of Kuwait: The Nation sees an economic growth, using the large amount of oil in the region to sell off to foreign powers. The nations military sees an expansion to 1000 men, armed with newly purchased G3s. The nation continues to develop its industry.
    • Kingdom of Qatar: Under the guidance of the Saudis, the nation continues to recover from the war. Preperations to use the nations large reserves of natural gas and oil begin. 
    • Kingdom of Bahrain: Relatively unphased by the war, the new nation of Bahrain grows under the guidance of the Saudis. A small military force of 1000 men is formed. Preparations to create an oil industry on the island begin, though it is expected to be tiny due to the nation's small size.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: President Tajdin Serefxan and Prime Minister Alistaire Valence visit Saudi Arabia for the funeral of Ibn Saud. 
  • Republic of Turkey: Tajdin Serefxan, the Third President of Turkey actively sought to westernize Turkey and implemented a series of laws for the Turks and Kurds to disband their backward practices and embrace the modern world. However, unlike Mustafa Kemal; the new Premier did not call for the people to give up on religion and maintained a link between religion and the state. Keen on establishing Turkey as a major economic power in Europe in his very own way, he practiced high level of state intervention in the economics. Having invested a total of 5% of the Turkish GDP into education, the literacy rate in the nation has rose to 67%. This had a massive increase upon the size of those qualified in the workforce, and allowed Turkey to expand upon its automotive, agricultural, armament and shipbuilding industries. The profit gained from expanding these industries led to the development of a general mindset to focus upon these four industries as four pillars that would support Turkey as it marched forward. The automotive and shipbuilding industries in Turkey were particularly concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara region. In constrast to that, the armament industry and the agricultural industry were more widespread in Anatolia. However, the automotive and armament industry depended heavily upon Soviet technological aid. Indeed, other industries in Turkey was also given equal important such included the Turkish textile industry which was amongst the top in the world and the Turkish mineral industry which proved quite beneficial in maintaining Turkey self-sufficient for minerals whilst catering the needs of the neighbouring states. Communication and transport played a major role, and a major railroad system was completed which linked linked the entire state of Turkey, and now preparations were made to construct roadways and highways as well as a major bridge across the Bosporus. This also led to large scale urbanization, particularly in Thrace, Macedonia and Western Anatolia, which were now amongst the most urbanized areas in Turkey. In comparison, Central and Eastern Anatolia were largely rural although major development programs over the past few years led to massive increase in urbanization; and particularly led to largescale immigration of Turks which drastically decreased the Kurd dominancy maintained over Eastern Anatolia. As far as energy was concerned, oil deposits discovered in Eastern Thrace and Northern Anatolian coast were mined. Turkey, in particular was a large producer of lignite which was largely mined from Eastern Anatolia. However, also keen on acquiring a source of energy which would be renewable; major dams were constructed throughout Turkey. Of significant notice was the Karababa Dam constructed the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The Central Bank of Turkey and the Istanbul Stock Exchange were established primarily to look over the stock exchange rate, and secure government funds and Turkish reserves as well as grant heavy interest-loans to major private companies who sought to invest in Turkey. Meanwhile, with heavy crime and the need to maintain law and order within the cities; the Federal Espionage and Security Force [FESF] was established which acted as a police force to look over crime, corruption and tax evasion and were directly answerable to the Turkish Premier. The FESF also served to launch counterintelligence missions as well as a propaganda force by keeping the media and press under their very control, and had a total size of 10,000 with the FESF depending largely on informants who were not counted. The Turkish Armed Forces stood at 200,000, the Air force at 100,000 and the Marine Corps at 50,000 which kept the Turkish Peacetime Force at 350,000 whilst a reserve force of 200,000 was maintained. The headquarters of the Turkish fleet were established at the Golden Horn and the Turkish fleet expanded to include 80 ships and two fleet carriers, TCG Derman and TCG Solmaz. Moreover, in an attempt to exert Turkish control over the seas, the navy initiated patrols over the Aegean Sea, the Bosporus Straits, the Black Sea and the Gulf of Iskenderun. Along the same time, the WWI era Turkish aircraft was quickly replaced with the modern MiG-15 Jet fighters as well as the Yenilmez Y-III Bomber. These aircraft were far superior to those previous used, possibly the best in Europe and offered greater speeds, wider field of view, better accuracy, etc, and the presence of such technology allowed Turkey to construct prototypes of their own. The total size of the Turkish air force was maintained at 700 aircraft. The Turkish infantry was heavily armed with Soviet AK-48 whilst the armoured divisions used tanks of Soviet nature. This allowed Turkey to quickly close in on the technological gap that existed in terms of automotive, as it had soon built the Atlay II tank based of the designs French CharB1 Tank and the Soviet T-34 Tank, and now sought to develop the Atlay III Tank based off the designs of T-54/55 Tank, Panzer IV and the T-34. However, it was maintained that T-34s served along with the Atlay II in the battlefield. The Turkish armament factories initiated mass production of the Atlay II tank as well as AK-48 rifles which were re-engineered to serve Turkish interests. Meanwhile, Turkish scientists made significant progress into nuclear research as an adequate amount of funding was given by the government. Turkey attacks Lebanon to acquire greater control over the Gulf of Iskenderun
    • Turkish Dominion of Greece: After defeat at the hands of the Turkish army, a new puppet regime was established in Greece under Governor, Ioannis Rallis. The new Governor announced the creation of Greece Law Enforcement Force consisting of 50,000 police officers which would serve to maintain order in the nation and purchased 100,000 rifles from Turkey for the arming of this Force. Under his leadership, the militarist policies of the former leadership were completely abandoned and the government funded more upon advancing the Greek agrarian economy, expanding the industry and developing the poor living conditions in Greece. Moreover, he supported large-scale immigration of Turks. Athens is reconstructed with new infrastructural reforms brought forward. 
    • Turkish Overseas Military Establishment: Military bases were constructed at Nablus, six km North-East of Amman and at Jordanian border with Egypt beside the Mediterranean Sea. At these military bases, a total of 6000 troops were deployed. Along the same time, naval bases were constructed at Tel Aviv and Haifa where 500 marines and 20 ships were sent. The presence of such bases at strategic positions thus allowed Turkey to conjure greater control over the Mediterranean Sea as well maintain proximity with Saudi Arabia and the Suez Canal. Meanwhile, Turkey restricted any uranium mining and therefore, railroads from the mining sites to Haifa were not constructed.
    • Turkish - Syrian Diplomacy: The hand of friendship is extended to Syria and the government is recognized. Moreover, Turkey offers an arms deal and an alliance to Syria. Given the war-mongering policy of Saudi Arabia, Syria is informed that it is quite possible for them to be the Saudi's next target. [Mod Response]
    • Syrian Dip (MOD): Accepts.
    • Don't have a border with them, they couldn't be the next target.
  • Mesoamerica: Begins preliminary construction on the canal this year, mobilizing the army and 40,000 former Nicaraguan and Honduran prisoners to start dredging the San Juan River and Lake Nicaragua. In order to do the more complex job of linking Lake Nicaragua to the sea, foreign technical expertise and funding is necessary, and has not yet been secured. Mesoamerica announces that any nation which wishes to invest in the canal will be offered extremely favourable terms, including free access. In order to fund the canal, loans are secured and a new tax levelled on the wealthy. Land seized from landowners in Nicaragua is also sold off. The government also, in order to avoid suffering from Mexican cartels, legalizes several drugs and places their production under government control. This provides a further source of funding. Mesoamerica re-iterates its offer to the Danish and Norwegian governments. Mod Response, Please
    • ​German Dip: Berlin expresses an interest in investing in the canal and in providing engineers to help its construction as a project of that magnitude will be amongst the great engineering feats of the 20th century.
    • Mesoamerica:Wwould be happy to sell Germany a 49% stake in the canal and guarantee it free access in perpetuity, as well as a portion of future revenues.
  • German Reich: The Me Drachen and Me F-53 prototypes prove very effective and production of the second generation fighters begin to replace the older models. Planes that are phased out are sold to German allies mainly China, Saudi Arabia and Syria. The Me B-53 is also finished to take over the role of a strategic bomber for the Luftwaffe. Improvements are made to the Panzer V as the Leopard I is still a few years away from completion. The Barrel is adjusted to accommodate 105 mm ammunition, while a stronger engine and wider tracks are attached to improve mobility. To complete the mechanization of the infantry the final APC models are completed and production of the P-53 , and P126 begin. Choppers are also produced in large quantities to aid ground forces. The G3, MP5, and MG53 are produced in massive amounts to replace the aging equipment from the 1940s. New anti-tank weapons enter development as well to answer the growing need for greater firepower. Development of tactical artillery begins, with a prototype for a nuclear artillery piece being developed. Naval expansion continues to meet the demands for coastal protection and to protect German interests abroad. Development of the hydrogen bomb, and IRBM's near completion with the project leaders estimating the new weapons will be finished by 1956, research into the secondary effects of a nuclear explosion begin indepth mainly their effect on the organic material and their effect on electronics. The space program continues with Germany sending another rocket into the atmosphere, preparations for sending a living organism into space continue (a dog). The computer continues to grow in importance for the military and the BND as its data storage capacities greatly exceed expectations and other uses are discovered such as quicker communication. Development of more modern stealth fighters begin. Medical research continues as breakthroughs continue. The first German nuclear power plant is built outside Dusseldorf, though it is kept closed until further tests can be made to determine its viability as a source of energy. Development of a faster train begins as the volume of people travelling from place to place grows and demand for quicker transportation does as well, this leads to research into trains pulled by magnetic rails (bullet trains a concept that was developed in this period OTL). The Universities of Berlin, Vienna and Munich increase funding for research in engineering, medicine, and physics to continue developing Germany's strong academic tradition and maintain Germany's place in the world as a leader in innovation. At the University of Berlin research into lasers begin. Cultural development continues as the democratization of the Reich comes to an end. The once powerful aristocracy slowly start to fade into the background of German politics as they become another interest group backing the conservative coalition. Many landowners and Industrialists begin modernizing their means of production to better exploit Germany's growing position within the Global economy. More factories and service companies open up creating jobs for thousands in areas previously ignored. Groups like Mauser-Mannlicher, Heckler and Koch, Krupp, and Bundeswagen continue to expand their shares in their respective market abroad. Efforts to incorporate Elbes-Lothringen's infrastructure begin, the region remains under occupation. However, curfew is relaxed and the occupation forces are told to be courteous to the locals.  As Germany's economic interests in the Middle East a group of industrialists from Hamburg, Essen and Berlin begin looking at the long forgotten Baghdad railway, a project abandoned by Germany in the aftermath of the great war. Adapting this idea the group conceives a new more ambitious project known as the Euro-Arabia connection, a transportation system that would directly link Saudi Arabia and the growing oil industry there with the Central Europe's largest industrial sectors. Despite the desire for this the group lacks the authority or influence to pull this off at the moment and goes to the government in Berlin to try to get political support. The Reichstag and high command take a great interest in the proposition and plans are made to begin talks with the governments of the Netherlands, Switzerland and Saudi Arabia to try to work out the groundwork for project of such a scale, feelers are also sent out to the governments of Turkey, Syria, Palestine, and Hungary to find out their position on such an endeavour. Influence over Prague starts to grow as economic and military co-operation between the Reich and Czechoslovakia continue. Berlin begins lobbying for an ecnomic union with the Czechs though these efforts are kept to a minimum as Berlin does not wish to scare off its most important ally against Soviet expansion in Eastern Europe. The BND continues expanding its intelligence web abroad with greater focus being placed in the volatile Middle East, in the Balkans, and in China. With the rise of ethnic violence in Yugoslavia the BND sees an opportunity to make connections with the now persecuted Bosniaks and with the Croats who have long rivaled the Serbians. With the French bombing of South Africa, Berlin passes a law that allows for the construction of a series of underground bunkers meant to protect Germans in case of a nuclear attack. As the British and American economies enter recession Germany takes advantage to fill in the gap in the global economy. International flights to other major German allies and trading partners begin. Trade with Scandinavia increases extensively with the signing of free trade agreements. 
  • UPR: The military leaves advisors in Scotland but the fleet returns home. The economy continues to improve, and the military plans a massive building project in the Andes Mountains for continuity of government. A series of smaller bunkers are planned for various mountains. There will be a separate power supply, landing strip, helicopter pad, water supply, and hidden farms. There is concern of radiation from South Africa drifting into various Argentinean occupied islands. Trade with Germany increases. (Eco/Infra Turn)
  • USGN: With the war over before it truly began, all troops return to the country. While Germany and Britannica celebrate the victory, the Dutch find no pride in this war, and hope this is the last time we combat France. Mil and eco. Our industry benefits greatly from the Iron Rhine. The G3 is adopted as the main assault rifle, and we contribute to the research of the Leopard. We get our first own nuclear weapon (I already know I'm gonna get some shit about this, but it's because of my agreement with Germany, which grants me access to all equipment and weapons Germany has). We recognize the independence of Scotland. In honour of our PATO membership, we declare war on the Dominion of Britannica. No moves are made however, and the fleet is ordered to stay in the ports. This year, a small group of 18 year old new signups start a special program, called Griffin. They are trained and specialized for espionage, with the eventual goal of becoming our special forces. Their training is planned to take five years, and thus it will finish in 1957. EuroRail goes into effect
  • Yugoslavia: In order to please Germany, we end our genocide of Bosnians, though it has greatly helped us grow our economy. In exchange, we ask Germany to invest in our country to further help it industrialize and become an industrial power. We improve our economy and our infrastructure. Jovanovic begins two programs in this year. The first involves the construction of government-owned railways, from which the government will make money and build more railways with that money, until our country is very interconnected, and our economy flourishes. The other program he begins is the Jovanovic report, in which he details his view of the world and Yugoslavia's place in it, and he plans to make a new report every year. The report makes news headlines in multiple country, especially his ranking of the top ten most powerful current countries (USA, Germany, USSR, Brittanica, Japan, Brazil, France, South Africa, China, Italy in that order). Jovanovic allows women to fight in the military, but still restricts them from the draft.
  • Republic of Egypt: We sell oil to Turkey, Syria, Iran, US, and Germany (Those who want oil can request it). However, we are concerned about the crisis in Europe as our trade routes may be attacked, so we only sell a little amount of oil to Europe. Meanwhile, we find gas five km east of Mersa Matruh, the amount is very huge, we also say this may be an alternative to Oil. Crude oil continues being produced in oil refineries, we also find petroleum. Modernization continues as cities like Cairo, Alexandria, Giza, Shubra El-Kheima and Port Said continue to expand and be urbanized as many rural areas neighbouring the cities are annexed. Also, more villagers move to the larger cities. Port Said and Alexandria continue mass producing ships like destroyers, aircraft carriers and battleships while Cairo and other airbases produce the Delta wing heavy strategic bombers that we began producing last year. President Muhammad Naguib and Deputy Prime Minister Gamel Abdel Nasser go to the funeral of Ibn Saud. (Note: Naguib isn't overthrown this year by Nasser as in OTL)
    • The US agrees.
  • Spain: Government elections begin between the Communist, Democrat and Republican Parties. Factory construction is completed. Military is being retrained.
  • Hungary: Hungary develops the economy and military. The military currently consists of 350,000 men, as conscription ends. The majority of Hungary's troops are located on the border with Romania. Miklós Horthy was overthrown many years ago, and Charles II became King of Hungary. The government purchases several public transportation businesses. (Economy and military turn)
  • Dravida Nadu: We first begin industrializing by convincing our public to give up their farms to move to the factories. We take full advantage by launching new towns beside our natural resources causing massive movement of young people. As a democracy, our leader C.N. Annadurai was elected for leading the war effort although he is going through his second term. With his revolutionary spirit, he presses claims on both Hyderabad and Ceylon since they both have people of Dravidian Languages. Although the National language is Tamil, we instituted regional languages of Kodava, Tulu, Malayalam and Kannada. We also request ships from Germany for tanks and weaponry along with an alliance.
  • OAU: The Organization of African Unity (OAU) officially becomes the political representative for all of the nations originally represented with the Union of Southern African Nations. A census is held to begin the process of building the state budget and setting the taxes for the year. A total of 72,760,293 citizens are tallied throughout the OAU. A strong and progressive sex education system and series of hospitals throughout regions in need of development, plus the inclusion of the former French Equatorial Africa and British colonies, are held as the reason for the growth. Though Cape Town suffered a major hit, and the destruction of Durban counted as well, the OAU economy grows by 2.2%, stable but not as strong as originally predicted before the two nuclear strikes. The immediate consolidation of the OAU republic of Central Africa (former French Equatorial Africa) begins, with hundreds of tons of supplies and materials sent up north to assist in the modernization of the rail system, local infrastructure, and construction of factories and ports. The collective military forces of the OAU are reorganized into the Union Defense Force, with a standing army of 842,740 active personnel and 1,409,280 reservists. Plans to expand the air force and navy in accordance with this information begins immediately, with the full weight of the OAU industrial complex thrown behind the project. 36 Atlas Tiers, ten Atlas Perdebyes, and 18 Atlas Soekers are constructed and sent to the Union Air Force. 300 Luislang Mk.I tanks are also builts and given to the army for immediate dispersal throughout the active combat units. The reconstruction of Cape Town continues, with much work progressing smoothly across the area. Thankfully, downtown Cape Town was spare the nuclear devastation, and therefore, much of the economic activity can resume once the city is mostly rebuilt. Tracking of the fallout from the blast is shown to have moved westward through the wind, and into the Atlantic Ocean, sparing the population of southern Africa the effects of radioactive contamination (anyone having an issue with this can take it up with nature, wind blows to the west in the Southern Hemisphere). Throughout the nation, the concept of Pan-Africanism continues to grow with the formation of the OAU, and with the ANC as the ruling party, ANC members throughout Africa already serving as politicians and military officers in their home countries, begin preaching the idea of a unified African continent under the aegis of the ANC-governed OAU. With the successes of the ANC well-known throughout Africa, many natives begin to join the party in their homelands at ANC branch offices opened in their major cities back in the 1930s. Albert Lutuli, the new Chairman of the OAU, begins traveling across the continent to promote his views on the idea of a united Africa, and encourages local governments to join the OAU for the benefit of their people. Fellow Pan-Africanists such as Kwame Nkrumah, Ahmed Sékou Touré, and Julius Nyerere, are invited to attend the first political Pan-African Congress of the OAU, which will be fully televised and broadcast throughout all of Africa, where Lutuli hopes to get them to agree to his proposal of joining the already successful union of nations under his party's leadership. Given the OAU's size, strength, and economic power, as well as its embodiment of the very principals that the four men have striven to implement in their home countries, Lutuli makes a powerful case to his fellow politicians; and after giving them a tour of once impoverished black regions of South Africa and southern Angola which have prospered under the ANC's progressive watch, sends them off with the hope that they will join the OAU in the future. Back at the Pan-African Congress, representatives from the various states and groups throughout the OAU are informed of Lutuli's aim for the OAU; to unify all of Africa by 1990 by any means necessary, do so for the enrichment and empowerment of the African people. After centuries of oppression and theft of their continent's resources, Lutuli states that it is high time that the Africans were brought together for their own good to defend their homeland from foreign invaders and exploiters. At the end of his speech, the representatives at the speech begin shouting "Africa for Africans", a slogan which becomes highly popular throughout the country. With much of Africa still under the control of European colonial empires, the ANC builds a strong support base in places such as Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, and Madagascar, as well in regions as far north as Morocco, which has been under French colonial domination since the early 1900s. The OAU also introduces the Afro, a single currency to be used as legal tender throughout its borders. The aim is to reduce economic instability and make monetary transactions within the organization faster and easier.
    • Central African Republic: With the support of the OAU, the Central African Republic begins the immediate industrialization of its territory. With the 1954 census revealing a total population of 10,381,558, helping the new government begin work on how and where to begin industrialization of the republic. Government officials are sent out to begin the work of ending tribalism throughout the region. Looking to the examples of South Africa and Rhodesia, the CAR begins mediating tribal conflicts between the major ethnic groups in the area, helping them come to terms and working to establish peace deals with the major tribes. Monetary incentives as well as military threats, help the central government promote an air of peace in the tribal regions of the nation. With roads and businesses begin established in the undeveloped regions, tribes are encouraged to mingle with one another and understand each other, and assist one another in the development of their lands. Chieftains who work toward peace are given economic assistance and political rewards, while those who attempt to resume hostilities are marginalized by the government and forced out of power wherever and whenever possible. Schools and clinics are opened in the rurals parts of the CAR, and teachers and doctors airlifted into the area to begin their work. The ANC members recruited from the local population also move into the area to begin the political indoctrination of the natives, helping them to appreciate the work the OAU is doing to improve their livelihoods and standard of living.
    • Rhodesian Republic: The Rhodesian Republic continues to integrate its economy into that of the other republics. With much work already accomplished, Zimbabwe, is generally self-sufficent as far as food and resources are concerned. However, the government seeks to reduce the importing of industrial goods from foreign sources, and replace them with local OAU suppliers, to assist with the development of local industries in the other republics. The military garrison in the Rhodesian Republic, begins work on acquiring the latest military goods and equipment from the central government, seeking to fulfill its military obligations under the OAU charter. As for Zambia and Malawi, work to move their copper and agriculturally centered economies into a more diverse field begins.
    • East African Republic: The East African Republic begins the diversification of its economy under the OAU's economic plans, and helps to focus the economy away from the single-minded extraction system left by the British authorities. Jomo Kenyatta is admitted as the first preisdent of the republic, and begins work on industrializing his territory within the OAU. However, the OAU keeps an eye on him, ensuring that he does not favor his fellow Kikuyu people for government positions, nor restrict government funds to his family members. The military begins recruitment of the local population, and several military bases established in the region.
    • Angolan Republic: Southern Angola continues to industrialize its territory, so far having accomplished many of its objectives, while Northern Angola begins to catch up with the south. The literacy campaign continues, though given the smaller population of the republic compared to the other republics, it is expected that the literacy rate in the population should reach 75% by the end of the decade, with many of those taught by the government's schooling agencies, having gained a further education in the two decades since southern Angola's introduction into the defunct Union of South Africa. Construction of a shipyard in Namibe begins, as the government seeks to expand the local industries of the republic, and expansion of the city's port also begins with plans to push cargo tonnage capacity to five million tons a year.
    • Indian Ocean Republic: The expansion of naval facilities throughout the Indian Ocean Republic continues, with the aim of the OAU to expand its naval power considerably by the end of the decade. Shipyards are constructed in Port Louis, with the goal to employ several thousand of the republic's citizens in the shipbuilding industry, until Durban is rebuilt following the nuclear attack by France. Until then, some of Durban's ship orders will be transferred to Port Louis, while the rest are redistributed across Port Elizabeth, George and East London.
  • Brazil: Brazil begins to stand down a bit more but also begins a focus on the build up to send troops to join the United States against England due to their increasingly hostile attitude. The Brazilian navy in general begins to shift north as battlegroups start drifting near European waters, using PATO Allies as major supply bases. The Brazilian fleet also deploys the Fleet Carrier Rui Barbosa to the North Atlantic to make clear contact with American forces. The Brazilian economy grows modestly at about 4.3%. This drastic decrease in the previous year's growth comes from what's told to be the beginning of an investing phase in the economy and that only modest growth would hold true during this period. However, in secret 'revealed to be the beginning of a major and final investment in the Brazilian nuclear program aimed at achieving a bomb in 1955. The Brazilian technological development continues as well with the considerations for an all purpose tank gaining popularity over different classes. This begins to culminate in the design of a Main Battle Tank rather than a Heavy or light tank. This prototype is slated to field a 105mm smoothbore gun. The Brazilian air force continues its development as well adding a naval carrier aircraft as well known as the A-2 Halberd an attack aircraft as well as the F4A Seahawk. These aircraft take over the Carrier fleet by storm and the beginnings of a new class of carrier are put underway to retire the older carriers and to update them to modern standards. The Brazilian navy reaches nearly 180 oceangoing warships with many other auxilaries, troopships and support craft as well. The Brazilian army maintains its forces in Colombia and continues investment into the country. The Brazilian government begins surveying new locations for a new capital city.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela continues to invest heavily into its oil and refining industries looking to expand its domestic production significantly, with the greater profit flow coming in the Venezuelans begin to realize this goal as dozens of extremey promising developments are reporting in the oil field infrastructure build up. The Venezuelan armed forces begin training under the new battle doctrine and officially standardize their munitions with Brazil in order to share equipment, munitions, and co-develop weaponry. The Venezuelan economy shows intense growth as the oil industry picks up significantly. the Population reaches 4.5 million. The Venezuelan military also throws in investment into the new Brazilian tank program looking to acquire this peice of equipment for itself. The Venezuelan fleet begins to conduct its own patrols in the open ocean now fielding a semi-modern, and modest navy.
    • Colombia: The transitional government continues to fix damage from the war which becomes to be known as a blessing in disguise do to the massive flow of investment coming back following the near death of the economy following the Communist coup in Colombia. The Colombians begin to buy up resources and industrial product from Brazil at an alarming rate which greatly surprises the Brazilians. This is shown, however, that many key or choice goods and products are easier to purchase from Brazil than the US due to much shorter distance. The colombian nations continues to advance out of a dark economic recession and is expected to recover fully by 1959 and begin major growth by 1960. The scale of damage done by the war, however, remains moderate and the various rebuilding spurs an infrastructure development in the country.
  • Dominion of Britannica: In a historic new deal with the Organization of African Unity, Britannica hands over the Britannic naval base at Simonstown to the South Africans. The DNS Imperator is stationed there to provide cover for the OAU. Dominion engineers begin providing crucial aid to the OAU, beginning construction of shipyards, factories and other industrial facilities. The OAU navy is sold six frigates, ten minesweepers, and four defense boats. The Dominion Navy conducts war games and trains with the OAU navy, bringing them up to speed on current naval tactics. The Britannic-African Common Trade Agreement is signed, encouraging mutual trade and other economic good stuff. Research continues on missiles and other technology, while the navy and air force continue to be strengthened. Work begins on getting more logistical and power projection capability. The government critisizes the Indian expulsion of Britannic nationals and begins negotiations with the Holy Maharaj Empire on the return of Britannic property. An economic deal is also struck with China, and Britannic factories begin setting up immediately, taking advantage of the cheap labor available in China.
    • OAU Diplomacy: The OAU is pleased to have an ally in the Dominion of Britannica. We look forward to many years of political, economic, and military co-operation, and the fulfillment of our shared desire for peace and prosperity.
  • United States: blahblah blah PATO nukes, rockets, economy, military grow jobs. Republican Party splits, creating the Nationalist Party, which is made up of Republicans who abandoned the Dewey/Warren administrations and seek to distance themselves from the failure and sorcery that was the Anglo-American Wizarding War, etc.
