  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The military in the colony of Haejagang (해자강) continues to be on high alert and continues to heavily patrol the Korean settlements. Meanwhile, industrialisation and modernisation continue in Korea (similar to OTL Japan's Meiji Restoration). Monarch Hyomyeong continues investing in technology and science. The Hyundai Motor Company continues to build more cars. Prime Minister Chang Myon again asks Japan if it's okay to end the protectorate status on Korea; though it will continue to be a close ally of Japan and hopes for continued friendly relations with them. Meanwhile, the government continues the policy of neutrality in world affairs in general.
  • Ruthenia: The Ruthenians continue research into nuclear energy.
  • Borealia Flag 2 Union of Borealia: Both the economy and military improve across all the provinces of the Union. Oil produced from California, Alaska and foreign lands is imported to power plants throughout the nation, which in turn produce electrical energy for the entire continent. In order to save more energy, massive hydroelectric dams are constructed along the Navajo (OTL Colorado) and Amerigo (OTL Colombia) Rivers. The dingey industrial centers of major cities are done away with and replaced with modern economic districts, filled with massive yet ornate skyscrapers based on the Neo-Gothic style. Even the capital building in New Vienna is renovated in this manner, with only Queen Frances Square remaining Baroque. Super manufacturing companies emerge from these cities and export their products worldwide. San Francisco and Mamterlliq continue to be the main centers of the gold and oil trade, as well as highly diverse communities bringing in many immigrants from East Asia. Large highways connect these cities together, bustling with transportation including automobiles, aircraft and electric trains. The cities are also filled with electrical lights based on fluorescent gas, as well as a thriving entertainment business such as movies and cartoons. The Romanesque Party dies out and is replaced by the Gothic Party, which for the time being stands as the leftist opponent of the Borealian school. Electrical machines for mass computation are developed, which take advantage of the smaller components created in recent years. Similar innovations are being implemented to create television. A practical nuclear generator is produced and used to power New Munich. The Borealian Air Force is established, with an aircraft carrier being constructed to take it out to sea. Research is being poured into the creation of rockets, with BARD performing experiments in the Andaman Islands. We continue to uphold the New Munich Declaration along with Algonquia, Reme, Mexaca, and Arcadia. The Pacific Protection Sphere, based around the Treaty of Midway, continues to promote peace in the Pacific and East Asia. A global trade network is established to promote Borealian companies in Arabia, Africa, Australia, and India. The World Trade Center in New Munich is built this year as a symbol of the world economy. The Indo-Pacific Trade Alliance greatly stengthens with the East African Trade Agreements, and thereby bringing in more of the Borealian navy into the Indian Ocean.
    • Colony of Kinshasa: After purchasing the Scandinavian colony of the Kongo, the lumber and mining industries greatly expand. Villages of varying sizes appear and grow. The government becomes more centralized. The border expands inward 750 px.
    • Colony of North Antarctica: A small base is established on Antarctica's northernmost peninsula, inhabited for most of the year. The lighthouse is completed this year and becomes the tallest lighthouse in recorded history thus far.
    • Indian Oceanic Territories: Composed of the Andaman Islands and the Maldives Islands. Limited Sharia law remains as the vast majority of the population is Muslim. A major port is expanded in Male, and used as a central headquarters to dominating trade in the pacific. Australia is given exclusive access to these ports. Major bases controlled by BARD experiment with rockets. BARD is expanded into a Space Agency, and begins to develop vehicles to reach Earth Orbit. The Space program sends the first Borealian into space this year, and deploys many satellites to establish global communication.


  • Lombardy: Our military is continuing to increase due to technology becoming better. Factories still make weapons and vehicles for our military but they are not the mostly made items. With the increase of factories in the nation, more jobs are being created. The employment rate has continued to increase in the nation. Agriculture is the best industry in the nation. The railway industry is continuing to work on improving the tracks. Doctors are now continuing to use new technology to make people better. Cars are one of the only ways to get around these days besides using the train. Trade goes well with the Roman Empire. The navy continues to build ships for trade and for future tensions. We continue to build many buildings like hospitals, colleges and banks.
  • Empire of Lanka: Emperor Dutugamunu II continues to control the throne. The government continues to focus all efforts on industrialization. Accelerated industrialization continues in Lanka due to things like the Waardige Accords, and the country's focus on it. Lankan architecture begins to develop its own identity, influenced largely by renaissance/baroque Dutch architecture and Asian, specifically Indian architecture. Although small, the imperial army continues to remain one of the most advanced in Asia, due to European supplies. Population in the cities continue to get jobs in factories and get involved in industrial work. The most recent census taken in 1930 accounts for 5,918,784 citizens. The ports on the island remain in heavy use, even competing with some Indian ports in the region like Chennai. Significant urbanization causes the cities of Waardige, Sri Jaywardenepura Kotte, Kandy, Kalmunai, and Galle, to be flooded with people. Waardige continues to be a trade, technological and industrial center in Asia. The Waardige Canal stands more as a scenic part of Waardige, and sometimes get visited by Europeans for their honeymoons. The island is nearly covered in railroads, and both transportation and transport of people and goods on the island is very fast. Religion in the empire continues to be mixed with the three main religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Dutch Reformist being worshiped on the main island while there are a few animist natives on Nava Kotte. The Lankan navy still holds warships that were supplied during the protectoratecy. With Galle and Waardige fitted to make ironclads and other warships, the Lankan navy continues to gain power. The Individual Imperial Number Edict stays in place. Lanka continues to massively export cigars, tea, tobacco, rubber, diamonds, and other precious gems. Lanka continues to hold alliances with Spain, Japan and Rome. The empire continues to purchase weapons from Japan and Rome. The Compulsory Education Act of 1919 which makes compulsory education from ages five to fifteen and makes work-only and school-only days. The Lankan Guilder continues to be minted and printed at the Lankan Imperial Bank. Laws that restrict Tamil culture and people continue. Although the Imperial Air Force exists, it has so far at most contained ten planes, the Empire begins investing a lot of money in the buying new equipment and planes. Lanka asks Rome to help train the army, navy, and air force in handling new equipment including tanks. With the Indian royal family exiled, some members in Lanka, and no clear claimant for the Indian throne, Emperor Dutugamunu II asks exiled Emperor Saddam Hussein if he can marry his oldest daughter, and claim the Imperial Indian throne [MOD RESPONSE]. Dutugamunu also references the relationship between Lanka and the Sunni Bengalis as we have been allies through two empires, and both parties have had a long history of assisting each other in warfare. The nations also share a dislike for Tamil Hindus. He discusses how this can lead to prosperity for both the Sunni Bengalis, and the Sinhalans.
  • Spain lands a thing on the moon. Because we are the greatest country on Earth, we will successfully have a man on the moon next year. This means that we have won Earth. Also, the Oyo and Yoruba Republics begin the transitional independence period. Spain makes some new fancy technology that is better than everyone else's technology. With the moon landing all but confirmed, the director of the space program, Hernandez, commissions a team of top level scientists from around the world to begin working on plans that will eventually help humans establish a long term habitable base on the moon. The war in Sumatra ends with Spanish victory and Sumatra is annexed into the East Indies. Long live Spain, may Juan Scrawlando rest in peace, god bless King Charles, long may he reign. Spain also stops asking the rest of Europe to make a cool group because the other countries aren't cool enough. Morocco is a cool place to live, even though it's really hot. Morocco's navy is fuckin' A, and the air force is not far behind. Morocco continues to lay claim to the West Sahara remainder state. Algeria makes money and guns, not necessarily in that order. Mostly money though. Also, the first Berber Prime Minister of Algeria is elected. In Malaya, Malaya makes metric fucktons of money due to its strategic position that gives it control over the Straits of Malacca and the Illustrious and Magnificent Port City of Singapore. Oyo and Yoruba gain independence from Spain and elect to join the Imperial Federation, because this will ensure long term economic benefits for both nations. The Imperial Federation becomes a free trade zone.
  • United Kingdom of Germany: In 1960, the economy recovers slightly, but is still in sour conditions. Constantinians continually push for more governmental change, but their voice is not as wielding as it used to be. The ideological rift widens in the Democrat-Federalist party between those who support the Constantianian faction and those who are solidly against it. In 1956, after a year of incredible losses, the Marian Liberals, headed by Teodoro Verner, announces the dissolution of the party come 1957. This quashes rumors of a possible merger with the Democrat-Federalists, but many were still correct in predicting the Liberals demise. Frederick Wahl laments the loss of "one of the most prized political parties in German history". In cultural news, Bavaria and Hamburg remain hotbeds of civic unrest. Pro-German groups continue to multiply and fester in Venezia, with Transitional Governor Englebrat doing nothing to halt their spread. However, in contrast with the demonstrations and sometimes violent protest, many disgruntled citizens in urban areas begin experimenting with art and music. A large number of graffiti crimes are reported in Vienna due to the large amount of spray-paint cans left over from WWII. Fears of civil war are still real as many fear Communist or Nationalist revolts, however the official Communist party rejects any societal uprising and projects itself as a party of peace and safety.


      • Northern Domain: The Northern Domain is made up of the Provinces of Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg and Oldenburg, with Governors heading each of them. In Oldenburg, the Duke is allowed to retain his seat in conjunction with a governor. The North remains a very volatile area, halved between those who are embittered by the great loss in the war, and those who want to move on. Several activist and protest groups are formed in Hamburg. Erika von Greschaft is pressured by her advisors to drop the title of 'Emperor' and 'King of the Germans' due to them no longer existing as titles. Erika does not relent, and still refers to herself as the Holy Roman Emperor, but states that she is pleased the seat is fundamentally the same and remains elective.
      • Southern Domain: The Southern Domain is made up of the Provinces of Austria, Bavaria and Swabia, with Governors heading each of them. The Southern Domain remains a hotbed for raw feelings and anger towards the German government. Bavaria and Austria spearhead the development of the UNBANC in an effort to keep the former Commonwealth States tied together. Melanie Leverenz leaves office at the beginning of the year, while Alfonse Benedetti, Conservative winner of the 1954 Bavarian elections, take her place. Leverenz pursue leadership in the UNBANC. In other southern news, the Augsburg Diet continues implementing tax break and tax credit progroms for low-income families and those in severe poverty. The Civilian Nuclear Research Corps continues operating, giving many scientists, physicists and engineers jobs.
      • Eastern Domain: The Eastern Domain is made up of the Provinces of Brandenburg, Pomerania and Prussia, with Governors heading each of them. Brandenburg and Pomerania join the UNBANC in order to preserve the former Commonwealth States. The Eastern Domain remains one of the lesser-devastated areas of the war, especially around Potsdam, due to the low industrial and agricultural prominence of the region.
      • Central Domain: The Central Domain is made up of the Provinces of Saxony and Hanover, with Governors heading each of them. The central domain remains somewhat quiet, but still very heated in the face of economic hardship and a general sense of despair. Saxon nationalism is stoked by radical collectives, but is mostly shunned by the majority of the citizenry and political class. Instead, more popular groups are formed advocating for the quick cleanup of bombed cities and destroyed farmlands.
      • Western Domain: The Western Domain is made up of the Provinces of Westphalia and Rhineland, with Governors heading each of them. Westphalia remains a core German heartland, and is a center for the brewing anger and disappointment following the loss in the war. In response to the formation of the UNBANC, the legislatures of both Westphalia and Rhineland work in tandem to create a politico-economic union of their own. They continue working through the end of the year.
      • Marystadt: Marystadt is allowed to become a single district due to its importance and size. National politics is dominated by post-war despair. Many Constantianians purse an aggressive approach to the post-war outlook, urging voters and citizens to "suck it up" and focus on clean-up, volunteering, and civic outreach, while Liberals and Conservatives focus on maintaining a courageous German spirit. Liberals introduce several tax breaks and reward programs to aid low-income families, while Conservative politicians encourage a laissez-faire set of economic packages. In totality, the situation remains confusing and the politics hard to navigate. Nevertheless, aside from the occasional demonstration and protest, Marystadt remains the most peaceful of all the newly-created domains.
      • UNBANC: The Union of Bavaria, Austria and Northern Commonwealths is established in 1955 after the Augsburg Diet attempted to keep together the unity of the former Commonwealth States. The UNBANC comes to life on January 1, 1955, and reveals its mission statement and core leadership status. The Union, its goal stated to "uphold the historic and long-lasting unity of the former Commonwealth States, as well as those members of the former Kingdom of Bavaria", is led by a Chairperson, ten-person executive council, and one-hundred and fifty person legislature. Melanie Leverenz, along with Oswald Klein and other prominent Bavarian politicians, run for the seat of Chairperson. The first election is to be held in late 1956.
      • Transitional Domain of Trentino-Venezia: The areas of Trentino-Venezia, a once rich and valuable Bavarian region, must now be ceded to the Duchy of Lombardy. A transitional government is set up in the region to ensure that it remains stable and secure until the Treaty of Constantinople is signed. The general populace is mostly disappointed and saddened by the German loss, but the Transitional Government attempts to alleviate the pain by approving of several cleanup initiatives aimed at restoring Venice and other cities. Joanna Englebrat is appointed as Transitional Government by her former electoral opponent Frederick Wahl. Many radical, pro-German groups rise in Venezia.
      • Transitional Domain of Alsace-Lorraine: The area of Alsace-Lorraine is made into a Transitional Domain in order to facilitate a peaceful transition to the French government following the war. Due to the area not being a core German territory, its citizenry has no real connections to Germany and many applaud their return to France.
  • Lordship of Neu Norderney: The economy slowly improves. The Chancellor of the University of Neu Norderney reiterates his offer to Borealia, Algonquia, et al to use the Father Georg Meister Space Observatory in the west of the country. In other news, the Prime Minister asks for Neu Norderney to join the UN.
  • Netherlands: We aim for the skies, and test rockets. Not much else.
  • Roman Empire: The Roman Empire continues to recover from the shock of the Great War, in which many good Romans died. The Empire also focuses on its internal security and stability after noticing the power of the revolt in Africa and remembering painful memories of revolts in Italy and Egypt. Economic and civic policy are seen as key to improving stability and cohesiveness in the Empire. With that said, the Empire does have several foreign policy successes to note as well, mainly the unification of the Tartary and the return of order in the steppes. Trade continues to go well and the military continues to have a major part of Roman society, and new weapons like tanks, planes, and better submarines now play a significant role in the way the Empire wages war. The financial crisis affects the Empire badly, and the economy suffers and many go without work. The current administration works to help mediate the crisis even though it knows its days are numbered. The civil war in the caliphate forces the Empire and its ally Assyria to be on guard. Research in new areas of science continues. Nuclear physics are explored in universities in the Empire, however, no major breakthroughs or accomplishments have been recorded and governmental support is low. The Roman government continues to push for the completion of the Treaty of Constantinople, and Roman troops remain ready to fulfill the provisions as described. Nuclear research continues, and teh Sahara becomes a testing range for any detonations. New designs for advanced nuclear weapons based around the principles of fusion rather than fission are drawn up, and official funding for testing is given. The Roman military also looks into other high profile weapons such as chemical weapons. Automatic rifles and advanced rocketry are also researched and produced to help keep the Roman military on edge. Research into space is also approved and the first Roman spacecraft is launched to much fanfare.
  • Reme: Reme begins to build up its military and economy. Reme elects a new president and starts to build up its navy. Meanwhile, trade is improved on, with industrialization, mainly former Byzantine areas slowly being introduced to populous areas. Lumber, cash crops, and other goods become a major export of Reme, and starts getting Reme a jump-start into the European economy. There is also the creation of New navy ships, to help modernize the Reman navy. Coal mines are built, and starts churning out coal at a consistent rate. Coal mining plants are also started to be upgraded. Reme also starts very slowly changing its focus to industrial things, with a nationwide railroad being considered to be built. Industrialization of river areas continue, as well as the production of textiles to cheaper the price of Reman cotton. Meanwhile, a Socialist-based party starts to gain seats in parliament, with plans to make Reme a more self-sufficient state. People are getting anxious over the threat of Communism to Reme, and vote on the crackdown of Communist sympathizers and their families. The Reman government is pleased that Pearl River has voted to join the Empire, and promises that their rights and property will be maintained. The Reman military is improved a bit in an effort to hold up its part of the Fraternal Alliance. The economy suffers a great deal, and as a result the Socialists and outlawed Communists get a bit too eager in their expression that they have the correct answer, resulting in many demonstrations and some riots.
    • Protectorate of Wolof: Wolof begins to build up its military and economy. Reman food and supplies come in to help the formerly starving nation, as well as the Reman military to help sustain order. Some representation is given in the Reman Parliament, to give Wolof a minimal say in how Reme should be run. Meanwhile, plans to industrialize the coastal areas as well as plans for fortifications are presented, and are started being worked on.
  • Ban Republic of Croatia (Banska Republika Hrvatska): Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of theBan Republic. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. Trade routes are strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and Eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. Kotor Saraka (Adelaide) continues to expand. Draganić continues his research.
    • Isles of the Archvoivodeship (Otoci Nadvojvodstva): The infrastructure is built up.
    • Ban Republic of Carantania (Banska Republika Karantanija): Being an Alpine Slavic nation, the leaders begin a programme to create a standardized Carantanian language that will reflect on both the Slavic and Alpine (Germanic) aspects of Carantania.
    • Sukadang Županija: Croatization. Expansion into the other parts of Borneo.
    • Croatian Africa: Continues to expand.
    • White Croatia: Large-scale Croatization, numerous harsh measures are introduced to ensure White Croatia is Croatian.

1961

  • Kingdom of Kuba: after a year delay, the Royal Space Agency puts an astronaut, Michael Egmond, into space using the new Tyr II rocket. He re-enters the atmosphere and lands in the Imperial Sea, roughly 80 miles from Kuba. Economic recovery continues. King Mary also makes several governmental reforms, the most significant being the transfer of budget control from the House of Lords to the House of Commons.
  • Spain puts a man on the moon with the help of Borealia in the Artemis 6 mission on July 20. The first man on the moon is Eduardo Costa-Lopez. Costa-Lopez is a given a knighthood when the crew returns to Earth, becoming a member of the Order of the Golden Fleece for his great contributions to Spain and the human race. The event is broadcast on national television. Prime Minister Scrawlando proclaims the beginning of a new age for all of humanity. Long live Spain, may Juan Scrawlando rest in peace, god bless King Charles, long may he reign.
    • Borealia thanks Spain for permitting the Borealian astronauts a view of the moon on this joint expedition.
    • 'Is it really plausible for a successful lunar mission in 1961? Especially seeing as man has only been going into space for what, 2, 3 years.m
  • Lombardy: Our military is continuing to increase due to technology becoming better. Factories still make weapons and vehicles for our military but they are not the mostly made items. With the increase of factories in the nation, more jobs are being created. The employment rate has continued to increase in the nation. Agriculture is the best industry in the nation.

We continue to build many buildings like hospitals, colleges and banks.
  • Ruthenia: The Ruthenians celebrate the construction of Happy World, which is a massive theme park and resort owned and operated by ------- ------. It brings massive amounts of tourism to the previously sleepy town of Pripyat.
  • Borealia Flag 2 Union of Borealia: Both the economy and military improve across all the provinces of the Union. Oil produced from California, Alaska and foreign lands is imported to power plants throughout the nation, which in turn produce electrical energy for the entire continent. In order to save more energy, massive hydroelectric dams are constructed along the Navajo (OTL Colorado) and Amerigo (OTL Colombia) Rivers.

  • Republic of Britannia: Important infrastructural reforms were enacted in major cities, in order to modernize the Republic. With growing Britannic influence, and the beginning of a new era, the navy expanded rapidly using much of the Britannic expertise. Moreover, the influx of new resources in the form of lumber, labour and metals helped expanding the navy. Trade routes through the English Channel, the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean were strengthened, and coal mines around Northumberland, Durham, North and South Wales, Yorkshire, Scotland, Lancashire, the East and West Midlands and Kent were exploited. With trade routes increasing and Britannia entering an era of peace and stability, the development of new trade and military ships began, with the navy developing new models of aircraft carriers, battleships, destroyers and submarines. However, utmost importance was funding the Britannic financial services and aerospace industry, with both being two of the largest in the world. Similarly, the Britannic pharmaceutical and automobile industry played an important role in the economy. The management of the Britannic economy followed a broadly laissez-faire approach. The Republic also attempted to increase Britannic control over the North Sea, as it sought to gain control over the North Sea oil and gas production. The Republic of Britannia continued to conduct espionage operations in Western Europe, specifially developing aircrafts for surveillance. The Republic continued work on the Cornwall Project. Meanwhile, Joint Space Programs with UNR and Algonquia as well as Spain and Borealia allowed Britannia to rapidly acquire technology from both sides.
    • Britannic Eire: The economy and the navy are developed.
    • Britannic Africa: The African colonies expand by 5000 px. The Britannic government recognized the growing possibility of giving independence to its African colony, however the plan did not materialize.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The military in the colony of Haejagang (해자강) continues to be on high alert and continues to heavily patrol the Korean settlements. Meanwhile, industrialisation and modernisation continue in Korea (similar to OTL Japan's Meiji Restoration). Monarch Hyomyeong continues investing in technology and science. The Hyundai Motor Company continues to build more cars. Prime Minister Chang Myon again asks Japan if it's okay to end the protectorate status on Korea; though it will continue to be a close ally of Japan and hopes for continued friendly relations with them. Meanwhile, the government continues the policy of neutrality in world affairs in general.
  • Lordship of Neu Norderney: Much to the consternation of the government, unemployment amongst the young has grown in the past few years. Jobs in the fishing, power and agricultural sectors are pretty much all filled by older and more experienced people, and not all are capable of university study. This leads the government to consider alternatives, with the Prime Minister asking Algonquia how it would feel about Neu Norderney implementing a National Service to deal with youth unemployment. The government's vision would be for Algonquian advisors to help with the program. Admittedly, some in the community are unsure how to feel about such close cooperation with the country which recently invaded and occupied NN. In order to deal with this sentiment, the government begins a "public information" (propaganda) campaign, using posters, print media, and radio to extol the benefits of working with out friendly neighbour to the West. In other news, the University of Neu Norderney slowly realises that Borealia and Algonquia don't want to use our state-of-the-art Father Georg Meister Space observatory. After a bit of a cry in his office, the Vice-Chancellor decides that he's going to show them, and offers scholarships and grants for physicists and astronomers to do their research using the observatory.
    • A letter from the Borealian State Department thanks Neu Norderney for the offer, but politely states that Borealia is not willing to devote resources into deep space telemetry at this time.
    • The Greatest Spacefaring United Kingdom of Spain is glad to use whatever it can get its hands on and gladly offers to use the Father George Meister Space observatory.
    • Encouraged by Spain's interest, the government passes a bill automatically granting Spanish scientists entry visas, and also offering free accomodation near the observatory.
  • Algonquia would be willing to provide Neu Norderney assistance in implementing such a program. In order to further benefit the economies of both nations, it proposes a free trade agreement between Neu Norderney and Algonquia.
    • Oldenburg thanks Algonquia for its willing press in assisting us, and also for its gracious offer, which is accepted.

The Waardige Canal stands more as a scenic part of Waardige, and sometimes get visited by Europeans for their honeymoons. The island is nearly covered in railroads, and both transportation and transport of people and goods on the island is very fast. Religion in the empire continues to be mixed with the three main religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Dutch Reformist being worshiped on the main island while there are a few animist natives on Nava Kotte. The Lankan navy still holds warships that were supplied during the protectoratecy. With Galle and Waardige fitted to make ironclads and other warships, the Lankan navy continues to gain power.

1964

Early turn because I won't be on later.

Lombardy will be posted for.

Korea response, random number generator, (1-5, no, 6-10, yes, 2, the Japanese decline)

Rumblings of discontent begin rising in colonies in Africa and Asia as some begin clamoring for independence. While many of the protests are so far small, they don't seem to be dying down anytime soon.

  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The military in the colony of Haejagang (해자강) continues to be on high alert and continues to heavily patrol the Korean settlements. Meanwhile, industrialisation and modernisation continue in Korea (similar to OTL Japan's Meiji Restoration). Monarch Hyomyeong continues investing in technology and science. The Hyundai Motor Company continues to build more cars. Meanwhile, the government continues the policy of neutrality in world affairs in general. Heo Song-hyun creates the first Korean anime called Thunderclouds, with the main characters being Raiko Horikawa and Nishikino Maki. It soon becomes popular throughout Korea and receives many positive reviews.
  • Borealia Flag 2 Union of Borealia: Both the economy and military improve across all the provinces of the Union. Oil procured from both at home and in exterior territories are exported worldwide, as such a resource is barely needed in the nation anymore. Most power is gathered from hydroelectric plants at the Navajo (OTL Colorado) and Amerigo (OTL Colombia) Rivers, as well as nuclear power plants. All the economic centers are built in the Neo-Gothic style, save only Queen Frances Square. Super manufacturing companies emerge from these cities and export their products worldwide. San Francisco and Mamterlliq continue to be the main centers of the gold trade, as well as highly diverse communities bringing in many immigrants from East Asia. The Church of Latter-Day Saints, centered at San Francisco, is one of the most widely popular religions in the nation. Frustrated that the world did not end with World War II, the Prophet-President revises their prediction to the Year 2000. Large highways connect all cities together, bustling with transportation including automobiles, jet planes and electric trains. These cities are lit with fluorescent lights and entertained with public television. The two main political parties are the Gothic Party on the left and the Borealian Party on the right. Prototype personal computers are developed, and an email/website service begins to form in the universities. Research is being poured into space exploration, with BARD beginning to design a lunar base. Borealian satellites circle the globe, providing a basis for further mass communication. The New Munich declaration is at last fully fulfilled, although the Gothic party begins to dispute its legitimacy. The Pacific Protection Sphere, based around the Treaty of Midway, continues to promote peace in the Pacific and East Asia. A global trade network is established to promote Borealian companies in Arabia, Africa, Australia, and India. The World Trade Center and United Nation Building in New Munich stand as symbols of the world economy. Borealia places ICBM missiles on the Mariana Islands and the Andaman Islands. After putting these in place, the Curia stronly suggests that Japan release all their vassals as independent protectorates (Mod response, please).
    • Colony of Kinshasa: After purchasing the Scandinavian colony of the Kongo, the lumber and mining industries greatly expand. Villages of varying sizes appear and grow. The government becomes more centralized. The border expands inward 750 px.
    • Colony of North Antarctica: The Antarctic base grows into a small village, centered with the Great Lighthouse. A mining operation is under way to find fossilized life under the ice.
    • Indian Oceanic Territories: Composed of the Andaman Islands and the Maldives Islands. Limited Sharia law remains as the vast majority of the population is Muslim. A major port is expanded in Male, and used as a central headquarters to dominate trade in the Pacific. Australia is given exclusive access to these ports. Major bases controlled by BARD experiment with rockets. BARD is expanded into a Space Agency, and begins to develop vehicles to reach Earth Orbit. The Space continues to explore the Lunar surface with Spain's aid.
  • Lordship of Neu Norderney: National Service is implemented this year, with high school graduates, both male and female, being made to do two years in the army. Youths who have been unemployed for more than six months are also drafted for two years. The only exception that is made is for high school graduates entering seminaries, monasteries or abbeys. Whilst there is some dismay from the youths themselves, the majority of the adult population supports the move, saying it will teach the young good Catholic values like supporting one another and helping others. In related news, in order to assuage any international fears that this implementation of a National Service is in any way revanchist, Lord Conrad X issues a declaration, binding on future parliaments, that Neu Norderney is not to get involved in war unless it satisfies the Church's concept of a "Just War". The parliament unanimously passes a motion commending the young Lord's declaration.
  • Roman Empire: The Roman Empire continues to recover from the shock of the Great War, in which many good Romans died. The Empire also focuses on its internal security and stability after noticing the power of the revolt in Africa and remembering painful memories of revolts in Italy and Egypt. Economic and civic policy are seen as key to improving stability and cohesiveness in the Empire. With that said, the Empire does have several foreign policy successes to note as well, mainly the unification of the Tartary and the return of order in the steppes. Trade continues to go well and the military continues to have a major part of Roman society, and new weapons like tanks, planes, and better submarines now play a significant role in the way the Empire wages war. The financial crisis affects the Empire badly, and the economy suffers and many go without work. The current administration works to help mediate the crisis even though it knows its days are numbered. The civil war in the caliphate forces the Empire and its ally Assyria to be on guard. Research in new areas of science continues. Nuclear physics are explored in universities in the Empire, however, no major breakthroughs or accomplishments have been recorded and governmental support is low. The Roman government continues to push for the completion of the Treaty of Constantinople, and Roman troops remain ready to fulfill the provisions as described. Nuclear research continues, and teh Sahara becomes a testing range for any detonations. New designs for advanced nuclear weapons based around the principles of fusion rather than fission are drawn up, and official funding for testing is given. The Roman military also looks into other high profile weapons such as chemical weapons. Automatic rifles and advanced rocketry are also researched and produced to help keep the Roman military on edge. The first Roman space station is sent up and manned by several astronauts, however the space station is not able to host people for long durations. The first thermonuclear detonation also occurs this year in the Chagos islands, and the Roman military begins efforts to miniturise the warheads to fit on ICBM missiles.
  • Reme: Reme begins to build up its military and economy. Reme elects a new president and starts to build up its navy. Meanwhile, trade is improved on, with industrialization, mainly former Byzantine areas slowly being introduced to populous areas. Lumber, cash crops, and other goods become a major export of Reme, and starts getting Reme a jump-start into the European economy. There is also the creation of New navy ships, to help modernize the Reman navy. Coal mines are built, and starts churning out coal at a consistent rate. Coal mining plants are also started to be upgraded. Reme also starts very slowly changing its focus to industrial things, with a nationwide railroad being considered to be built. Industrialization of river areas continue, as well as the production of textiles to cheaper the price of Reman cotton. Meanwhile, a Socialist-based party starts to gain seats in parliament, with plans to make Reme a more self-sufficient state. People are getting anxious over the threat of Communism to Reme, and vote on the crackdown of Communist sympathizers and their families. The Reman government is pleased that Pearl River has voted to join the Empire, and promises that their rights and property will be maintained. The Reman military is improved a bit in an effort to hold up its part of the Fraternal Alliance. The economy suffers a great deal, and as a result the Socialists and outlawed Communists get a bit too eager in their expression that they have the correct answer, resulting in many demonstrations and some riots.
    • Protectorate of Wolof: Wolof begins to build up its military and economy. Reman food and supplies come in to help the formerly starving nation, as well as the Reman military to help sustain order. Some representation is given in the Reman Parliament, to give Wolof a minimal say in how Reme should be run. Meanwhile, plans to industrialize the coastal areas as well as plans for fortifications are presented, and are started being worked on.
  • Ban Republic of Croatia (Banska Republika Hrvatska): Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of theBan Republic. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. Trade routes are strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and Eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy. However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. Kotor Saraka (Adelaide) continues to expand. Draganić continues his research.
    • Isles of the Archvoivodeship (Otoci Nadvojvodstva): The infrastructure is built up.
    • Ban Republic of Carantania (Banska Republika Karantanija): Being an Alpine Slavic nation, the leaders begin a programme to create a standardized Carantanian language that will reflect on both the Slavic and Alpine (Germanic) aspects of Carantania.
    • Sukadang Županija: Croatization. Expansion into the other parts of Borneo.
    • Croatian Africa: Continues to expand.
    • White Croatia: Large-scale Croatization, numerous harsh measures are introduced to ensure White Croatia is Croatian.

With the increase of factories in the nation, more jobs are being created. The employment rate has continued to increase in the nation. Agriculture is the best industry in the nation. The railway industry is continuing to work on improving the tracks. Doctors are now continuing to use new technology to make people better. Cars are one of the only ways to get around these days besides using the train. Trade goes well with the Roman Empire. The navy continues to build ships for trade and for future tensions. We continue to build many buildings like hospitals, colleges and banks.
  • Ruthenia: The Ruthenians continue to research nuclear energy.

1965

Discontent continues in many areas of colonial rule. Many major colonial cities or areas without major self-government begin to have riots and there is so far little effort by authorities to either contain them or try to negotiate with them. Without further action, the situations in Africa and Eastern Asia could worsen.

However, the government makes sure that the gold arriving isn't immediately put on the market in order to control the inflation in the worth of gold. The silver mine in Srebrenica is mined. Kotor Saraka (Adelaide) continues to expand. Draganić continues his research.
    • Isles of the Archvoivodeship (Otoci Nadvojvodstva): The infrastructure is built up.
    • Ban Republic of Carantania (Banska Republika Karantanija): Being an Alpine Slavic nation, the leaders begin a programme to create a standardized Carantanian language that will reflect on both the Slavic and Alpine (Germanic) aspects of Carantania.
    • Sukadang Županija: Croatization. Expansion into the other parts of Borneo.
    • Croatian Africa: Continues to expand.
    • White Croatia: Large-scale Croatization, numerous harsh measures are introduced to ensure White Croatia is Croatian.
  • Lombardy: Our military is continuing to increase due to technology becoming better. Factories still make weapons and vehicles for our military but they are not the mostly made items.

1967

The Chinese provinces of Japan revolt, pushing the Japanese out and unifying with China. Japan is reluctant to act harshly, as the world is watching and nuclear powers in particular. While Japan reacts with little force, some suspect Japan is now also building nuclear weapons to no longer be pushed around by greater powers.

  • Brazil: The Lusofonia Comunidade now encompasses the entirety of Brazil’s former empire in the African continent. As part of the community’s joint defense program, intercontinental ballistic missiles are stationed in selection parts of Africa. The first hydrogen bombs are tested and put into use. The Administração Nacional Aeronáutica e Espacial (ANAE) asks Borealia and Spain to allow joint space exploration missions. After a number of successful tests with the IM-9 Titã missile, and its successors, rockets are replaced with more reusable methods. The first Ônibus Espacial (Space Shuttle), named Viajante successfully flies a test mission into space. We begin influencing the nation of Portugal and ask them to join the Lusofonia Comunidade.
  • Korea: Korea continues to build up its military. Meanwhile, more Taoist and Buddhist temples are built. Taoism rises in popularity and gains more followers. Regular (read: not Imperial) Shinto gains a few more followers as well, mainly along the coastline in Southeastern Korea, particularly in Busan, Jejudo, Ulsan, and the coastal cities and coastal towns of Southern Gyeongsang Province. Mahayana Tao-Shintoism also continues to grow, and begins gaining followers from the areas where Shinto is growing, with some Shintoists switching to Mahayana Tao-Shintoism. The military in the autonomous province of Haejagang (해자강) continues to be on high alert and continues to heavily patrol the Korean settlements. Meanwhile, industrialisation and modernisation continue in Korea (similar to OTL Japan's Meiji Restoration). Monarch Hyomyeong continues investing in technology and science. The Hyundai Motor Company continues to build more cars. Meanwhile, the government continues the policy of neutrality in world affairs in general. Heo Song-hyun creates the fourth season of the Korean anime, Thunderclouds.
  • Ruthenia: The Ruthenians continue to research nuclear energy.
  • Borealia Flag 2 Union of Borealia: Both the economy and military improve across all the provinces of the Union. Oil procured from both at home and in exterior territories are exported worldwide, as such a resource is barely needed in the nation anymore. Most power is gathered from hydroelectric plants at the Navajo (OTL Colorado) and Amerigo (OTL Colombia) Rivers, as well as nuclear power plants. All the economic centers are built in the Neo-Gothic style, save only Queen Frances Square. Super manufacturing companies emerge from these cities and export their products worldwide. San Francisco and Mamterlliq continue to be the main centers of the gold trade, as well as highly diverse communities bringing in many immigrants from East Asia. The Church of Latter-Day Saints, centered at San Francisco, is one of the most widely popular religions in the nation. Frustrated that the world did not end with World War II, the Prophet-President revises their prediction to the Year 2000. Large highways connect all cities together, bustling with transportation including automobiles, jet planes and electric trains. These cities are lit with fluorescent lights and entertained with public television. The two main political parties are the Gothic Party on the left and the Borealian Party on the right. Prototype personal computers are developed, and an email/website service begins to form in the universities. Research is being poured into space exploration, with BARD beginning to design a lunar base. Borealian satellites circle the globe, providing a basis for further mass communication. The New Munich declaration is at last fully fulfilled, although the Gothic party begins to dispute its legitimacy. The Pacific Protection Sphere, based around the Treaty of Midway, continues to promote peace in the Pacific and East Asia. A global trade network is established to promote Borealian companies in Arabia, Africa, Australia, and India. The World Trade Center and United Nation Building in New Munich stand as symbols of the world economy. We support the state of Nivkhgu to gain total independence instead of being annexed by China.
    • Colony of North Antarctica: The Antarctic base grows into a small village, centered with the Great Lighthouse. A mining operation is under way to find fossilized life under the ice.
    • Indian Oceanic Territories: Composed of the Andaman Islands and the Maldives Islands. Limited Sharia law remains as the vast majority of the population is Muslim. A major port is expanded in Male, and used as a central headquarters to dominate trade in the Pacific. Australia is given exclusive access to these ports. Major bases controlled by BARD experiment with rockets. By now, BARD has sent flyby probes to the planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars. A mission is prepared to set up a rotating base on the Moon.
  • Roman Empire: The Roman Empire continues to recover from the shock of the Great War, in which many good Romans died. The Empire also focuses on its internal security and stability after noticing the power of the revolt in Africa and remembering painful memories of revolts in Italy and Egypt. Economic and civic policy are seen as key to improving stability and cohesiveness in the Empire. With that said, the Empire does have several foreign policy successes to note as well, mainly the unification of the Tartary and the return of order in the steppes. Trade continues to go well and the military continues to have a major part of Roman society, and new weapons like tanks, planes, and better submarines now play a significant role in the way the Empire wages war. The financial crisis affects the Empire badly, and the economy suffers and many go without work. The current administration works to help mediate the crisis even though it knows its days are numbered. The civil war in the caliphate forces the Empire and its ally Assyria to be on guard. Research in new areas of science continues. Nuclear physics are explored in universities in the Empire, however, no major breakthroughs or accomplishments have been recorded and governmental support is low. The Roman government continues to push for the completion of the Treaty of Constantinople, and Roman troops remain ready to fulfill the provisions as described. Nuclear research continues, and teh Sahara becomes a testing range for any detonations. New designs for advanced nuclear weapons based around the principles of fusion rather than fission are drawn up, and official funding for testing is given. The Roman military also looks into other high profile weapons such as chemical weapons. Automatic rifles and advanced rocketry are also researched and produced to help keep the Roman military on edge. The first Roman space station is sent up and manned by several astronauts, however the space station is not able to host people for long durations. The first thermonuclear detonation also occurs this year in the Chagos islands, and the Roman military begins efforts to miniturise the warheads to fit on ICBM missiles.
  • Reme: Reme begins to build up its military and economy. Reme elects a new president and starts to build up its navy. Meanwhile, trade is improved on, with industrialization, mainly former Byzantine areas slowly being introduced to populous areas. Lumber, cash crops, and other goods become a major export of Reme, and starts getting Reme a jump-start into the European economy. There is also the creation of New navy ships, to help modernize the Reman navy. Coal mines are built, and starts churning out coal at a consistent rate. Coal mining plants are also started to be upgraded. Reme also starts very slowly changing its focus to industrial things, with a nationwide railroad being considered to be built. Industrialization of river areas continue, as well as the production of textiles to cheaper the price of Reman cotton. Meanwhile, a Socialist-based party starts to gain seats in parliament, with plans to make Reme a more self-sufficient state. People are getting anxious over the threat of Communism to Reme, and vote on the crackdown of Communist sympathizers and their families. The Reman government is pleased that Pearl River has voted to join the Empire, and promises that their rights and property will be maintained. The Reman military is improved a bit in an effort to hold up its part of the Fraternal Alliance. The economy suffers a great deal, and as a result the Socialists and outlawed Communists get a bit too eager in their expression that they have the correct answer, resulting in many demonstrations and some riots.
    • Protectorate of Wolof: Wolof begins to build up its military and economy. Reman food and supplies come in to help the formerly starving nation, as well as the Reman military to help sustain order. Some representation is given in the Reman Parliament, to give Wolof a minimal say in how Reme should be run. Meanwhile, plans to industrialize the coastal areas as well as plans for fortifications are presented, and are started being worked on. By the end of the year, Wolof is granted independence as its people want. A democratic government takes power soon after.
  • Ban Republic of Croatia (Banska Republika Hrvatska): Sewerage systems similar to Ragusan ones are built in major towns of theBan Republic. With growing Ragusan influence, and the beginning of further colonization, the navy expands rapidly using much of the Ragusan expertise. Moreover, with the influx of new resources in form of lumber, labour and metals, the navy begins expanding at a fast rate. More and more ships capable of crossing the Atlantic with ease are built. The Sabor intends to restore the glorious naval culture of the Neretva peoples and plans to do so by expanding the navy. The kravata (tie) is more and more used as an accessory. Trade routes are strengthened and the salt mines around Tuzla are explored as well as the salt industry in Pag and Nin. Using irrigation from the Danube, Sava, Drava, Drina, Cetina, Una, Vrbaš, Kupa, Neretva and other rivers the fields in the kingdom are developed, used for crops such as wheat, rye and barley. With trade routes increasing and Croatia entering an era of peace and of stability, the development of new trade ships is issued. Stone mining is furthered as well as the timber industry. The need for these resources rises as urbanization carries on. Iron ores in Dugopolje, Zenice and at last the 'mud' ore in Vojvodina and Eastern Slavonia are to be exploited alongside the silver and copper ores more frequently and of better quality than the iron ores. The exploitation of iron ores in the Lika and Gorski kotar areas continues. The salt industry in Ston is funded by the government. The influx of resources from Dahomey aids the economy.

1968

In Asia, the Chinese provinces join China in a successful unification. Following such a display, Manchuria, Cambodia and Vietnam declare independence under the Trilateral Accord.

In Africa, many in Brazil's southern colonies demand independence, and some of them declare independence by the end of the year.

All of Brazil's colonies went independent about a decade ago.

News to me.

Seeing the age of national determination reach its climax, the Tartary invades Mongolia, hoping to liberate the Turks living under Mongolian rule.

Of course MP's ally invades Mongolia, even though Mongolia and the Tartary are close allies...

I asked another mod for permission first, don't get so conspiratorial.

1969

Large protests erupt in Papua and the Philippines, with some eager for independence and others more unsure.

Large protests also erupt in Spanish and British west africa.

Spanish West Africa is independent. And British West Africa doesn't even exist; UR sold them to me. Stop trying to invent things. Why do people have to revolt? Why can't they be happy in their freedom? Why does everything have to be the same as OTL? Stop forcing bullshit on the players, that's why "WWI" and "WWII" and that's why this game is dying.

Maybe instead of suggesting that we're trying to force things on people some of the mods are unaware of these events taking place because few of the players have been in chat and the mods are otherwise too busy to read the turns. We're not trying to push things on people, but carry out the events that we had planned originially and didn't know that the situation changed.

The Administração Nacional Aeronáutica e Espacial (ANAE), now operating a small fleet of several space shuttle, including the Viajante, begins regular missions into space for research and satellite deployment. Work continues on space station concept, and the first docking mission is completed between two space shuttles. The first module of the space station, nicknamed the Céuforte, Vida, is launched on an autonomous Brazilian IM-11 Titã rocket. It provides propulsion, attitude control, communications, electrical power, but lacks long-term life support functions. Two weeks later a passive ANAE module Unidade is launched aboard a space shuttle flight and attaches to Vida by astronauts during EVAs. This module has two Pressurized Mating Adapters (PMAs), one connected permanently to Vida, the other to allow the Space Shuttle to dock to the space station. Five months later a third component, named the Estrela, is launched with preprogrammed commands on board to deploy its solar arrays and communications antenna. It then becomes the passive vehicle for a rendezvous with the previous components. As a passive "target" vehicle, the Estrela maintains a stationkeeping orbit as the Vida-Unidade vehicle performs the rendezvous and docking via ground control and the Brazilian automated rendezvous and docking system. Unidade’s computer transfers control of the station to Estrela’s computer soon after docking. Estrela also adds sleeping quarters, a toilet, kitchen, CO2 scrubbers, dehumidifier, oxygen generators, exercise equipment, plus data, voice and television communications with mission control. This third component will allow permanent residence by astronauts. The first long term mission aboard the station consists of three individuals, who arrive later this year.
