1970

The Philippines and Papua both declare independence from Japan, although Papua pledges to keep close relations with their colonizer.

  • United Kingdom of Germany: the Imperial and Royal Space Agency is established this year by Mary II. Using the knowledge gained by the preceding Kuban Royal Soace Agency, the Tyr IV rocket is built, designed to take a crew of Germans further into space, though the planned Tyr V is decided to be the one to take Germany to the moon. But designers are looking at building a German variant of the space shuttsle of Borealia and Brazil. The IRSA also begins developing unmanned probes to send into the solar system for scientific research. Several Tyr IV missions are conducted by the end of the year.
    • Kingdom of Kuba: the reunion with Germany continues to be celebrated by the majority German community. The increased joint economic activity also leads to a rise in Kuba's economy.
    • This reunion was not approved by the United Nations, and is in violation of the Treaty of Constantinople
      • King Mary of Kuba was offered the German crown by Germany (Cookie), Kuba (me) accepted. There is nothing in the Treaty of Constantinople forbidding a reunion, or requiring UN approval. Secondly, Germany is still only a pending member of the UN because you guys haven't bothered to accept it or not.
      • The treaty forced the breakup of the German empire, you can't just come back together. The UN is charged with enforcing the treaty. Germany is not a member because it is a subordinate party.
  • Ruthenia: The Ruthenians continue to research nuclear energy.
  • Shahdom of Hyrcania: Shah Ardashir Bavandid is succeeded by his son, Prince Shapur Bavandid. A grand crowning ceremony is held in the capital of Sari at the palace's fire temple. After his crowning, the new Shah's first action is to officially name the Hyrcanian army, air force and navy, the Royal Hyrcanian Army, Air force and Navy, respectively. Infrastructure is improved within the country as well.
  • 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 seventh season of the Korean anime, Thunderclouds. Plans for a Korea International Motor Racing Circuit begins.
  • 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. King Mario dies at the age of 70. A huge ceremony and a statue is built of him in the capital.
  • 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 is exported worldwide, as such a resource is barely needed in the nation any longer. 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 satilites cirle 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 Manchuria. The Philippines and Papua are offered membership in the economic sphere of the Indo-Pacific Trade Alliance (mod response).
    • 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. The Phoebe base is greatly expanded, utilizing shuttles purchased from Brazil. A series of probes consecutively land on Mars and begin to explore the planet's surface.
    • When did I sell you space shuttles? - Fritz
  • Lordship of Neu Norderney: Work continues on the new "Conrad X Hydroelectric Dam". Television becomes increasingly common in the capital Jacqueline, although radio remains on top in the countryside.
  • 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.
  • 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.

1971

  • United Kingdom of Germany: rocket development continues, and the Imperial and Royal Space Agency prepares for a lunar mission within the next few years. As for the issue in Kuba, it is decided to leave Kuba's fate to the Kuban voters. A referendum is decided to be held with three options: maintain the personal union as it currently is, where both Kuba and Germany are legally separate states merely under a common head of state, or join Germany politically as a constituent territory like it was before WWII, or sever ties completely. German and Kuban naval units maintain their place outside the Andean blockade, even though it is derided as an unprovoked escalation.
    • Kingdom of Kuba: the date for the referendum is set for early next year. Naval units still in port are given orders to not make an attempt to break through the Andean blockade.
  • 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.

    • Borealia Dip: The Union of Borealia and Hesperia does not recognize the supposed union of Kuba and Germany, and unless Germany renounces this claim military action will be implemented.
    • Hmm, gonna declare war? Look, PMIII will literally be over in a month and then some, nobody wants another war spiralling out of control and causing a new batch of headaches. The war y'all waged on Germany was completely ridiculous, and honestly, let's not repeat that situation. Secondly, Guy was playing as Kuba, and he was talking to me for a while about wanting to come back as Germany, and he also wanted to bring Kuba along with him. I knew that this would probably not be an inconsequential action, but I decided to go through with it anyway. And we did just a few days ago. Are we threatening the UBH? No. Are we threatening Borealia? No. Are we threatening war against any of the surrounding countries? No. Why do you care so much about Kuba anyway? It was a prized colonial possession of Guy's, and when we united Germany, we made it a constituent realm in our country, and we want it back. We went through with a peaceful plan, and there is clearly no detriment to you, Edge, Fritz, etc. Please don't turn this into another headache war because you feel affronted, or whatever. I'm literally starting college in less than 48 hours and the last thing I, or Guy, want to do is start shit, and I'm assuming you don't either, so please let this blow by. Kuba wasn't a problem to you or anyone else when it was a colony, commonwealth or independent nation, so it certainly won't be a problem now. - Cookie
    • Andea states that if Kuba attempts to rejoin Germany, we will declare war.
    • Spain, too. Can you just cut the fucking crap already? My problem isn't with you guys being united or threatening anybody or whatever. I have a seriously fundamental issue with this whole thing. It was bullshit when Kuba, New Zealand and Germany were all part of the same nation in the 19th century and it is still bullshit now. The entire concept is preposterous and ludicrous. I guess I might as well annex Singapore and call it a province of Spain. Even looking beyond the sheer bullshit, what you are doing is the literal definition of starting shit, so if you really didn't want to start shit, you wouldn't have started shit. So now you start shit but claim that you do not wish to start shit. Those who do not wish to start shit do not start shit, so you are lying when you say that you do not want to start shit. Shame on you.
      • Oi. That language is unnecessary. Callumthered (talk) 06:03, August 29, 2015 (UTC)
    • My god. Then declare war. Jesus H. Christ. Seriously Scraw, what place do you even have in this??? You barely post and when you do, it's some shoddily written, short post (that isn't even funny or humorous). Plus, every post of yours and everything you say on chat reeks of narcissism and self-importance (nobody liked you in PM2, and I can't see why some people like you now). So fine, all of you declare war for all I care. Have any of you guys even been active lately? Why do you all care so deeply? We get Kuba back and suddenly you're foaming at the mouth and butthurt and threatening war. Get a goddamn grip. So yeah, declare war. Nuke Germany. Nobody. Gives. A. Shit. - Cookie
      • You too, Cookie. Quit it with the ad hominem attacks. Callumthered (talk) 21:18, August 29, 2015 (UTC)
  • No one wants another long war, and we all have real life stuff going on, but PM3 is a game where we have to act as our nations. You're not threatening us, but this is how our nations would plausibly act. We're in a situation where post-WW2 Germany wants to reclaim its empire seemingly, so that is why our nation's are resisting. Also Kuba is supposed to be in the UBH thing, so this move is potentially threatening; think Cuban Missile Crisis.
  • Kuba isn't allowed to do this. As part of the UHB, it can't make agreements that harm other nations politically.
    • Yet this doesn't harm anyone. As we've said fifty times prior, all we want is peaceful coexistence.
    • This does. Andea, Brazil, and to a lesser extent Boreliea all fought with Germany and won. We then made a treaty with specfic demands. Plus Andea swore to protect the independence of Kuba. If Kuba goes back to Germany, that is hardly indpendent.
      • You guys seem to keep forgetting that it was the Kuban monarch that was offered the German throne, and made King of Germany, not the other way around. You might have a point if I offered the Kuban throne to the German monarch, but that's not the case. Put simply, Kuba "inherited" Germany.
  • Fine, offer the Kuban monarch the throne, but she has to abdicate her previous throne, so that Kuba and Germany are not united.
  • Dare I point out that cookie promised that Kuba was separating from germany in the 1970s? I guess he meant to do the exact opposite.
  • This would be OK. Besides, even if you were going to be peaceful, no one would realistically believe that. This is basically the Cuban Missile Crisis, except without the Missiles. We just fought a war to sever these territories; to reunite them again would be seen in the political landscape as an act of major opposition and would certainly be interpreted as a military threat. Reuniting Kuba and Germany gives Germany the capacity to strike at any nation in the western hemisphere. Whether you would do so or not is beyond the point, the point is that you could, if you wanted to, and so we must be prepared.
  • Andea expands her nuclear arsenal and her arsenl of ICBMs. Space and stuff. Navy expands. The Unity Tower begins construction in Buenos Aires. Andea prepares for the bleak possiblity of war with Germany for a second time. As such, the Andean Navy moves to blockade Kuba, stating that if a single German ship attempts to cross this blockade, Andea will respond with her full force. The Emerald Canal and Strait of Magellan are sealed to German and Kuban Ships. While Andea seeks a peaceful solution, she will not allow this flagrant disrespect to occur.
  • Spain: We are great; the greatest. Space: moon, Mars. Money. Colonies. Freedom and liberty. Long live the King. Juan Scrawlando. Weaponry, ships, submarines, TV and film. Germany+Kuba=no. Such is the word of Spain.
  • Lordship of Neu Norderney: The parliament expresses its concern with the reunion of Germany with Kuba, stating that the move is "unnecessarily provocative", and could pose a threat to the post-war peace. Work continues on the dam, with youths in the National Service lending a hand.
  • 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.
  • 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. Meanwhile, a group of young teenagers in Rouennelle start gaining attention for their style of what they call "Rock and Roll". Their band, Remus, starts recording songs on the charts.
  • Ruthenia: The Ruthenians open the first functioning nuclear reactor with a massive ceremony.
  • 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.

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. The Roman government insists that both sides of the Kuban crisis adhere to the provisions agreed upon in the Treaty of Constantinople rather than risk war. The military in Antillia is put on alert in case the worst happens.

    • White Croatia: Large-scale Croatization, numerous harsh measures are introduced to ensure White Croatia is Croatian.
  • United Nordic Republics
    • ​Republic of Denmark: The economy of Denmark flourishes as it works to bring trade in the Baltic through Copenhagen. Still profiting from World War II, the Danish economy is beginning to enter an age of prosperity in the 20th century. The Danish general elections occur this year, with the Socialist front leading in a sweeping victory. With tensions between Germany and the Hesperian League rising, people in Denmark turn to anti-war protests as the Republic of Denmark declares neutrality in the world before it even begins. Danish rock music becomes popular.
    • Republic of Sweden: Sweden also sees profit. With money flowing into the Kattegat and out of Pskovian wallets, there is one undoubted ruler of the Baltic Seas now. Telephone lines are built in Sweden as electricity is brought to the northern cities and towns of Sweden. The Republic of Sweden commissions two destroyers into the Swedish fleet. There are now over 230 ships flying Swedish colors.
    • Republic of Norway: Norway's navy guards the North Sea as it protects its interests from pirates and would-be assailants in the North Atlantic. The economy of Norway improves this year as trade floods into the nation, especially the city of Oslo, which rivals even Copenhagen as the trading capital of the Baltic. In the meantime, a frigate is added to the Norwegian naval assets. A plane is also built this year. An air force base is established outside Oslo.
    • Republic of Finland: The Republic of Finland trades heavily with Livonia this year while Helsinki, the easternmost trade capital of the Baltics, sees renovation. An air force base is established near Helsinki while three planes are built this year for the Finnish Air Force. In the meantime, the Finnish navy sees the addition of another frigate while a handful of older ships are retired this year. Several covered cruisers, which saw action in WWI, are scrapped this year and used for parts for newer ships. Finland offers the former Pskovian nations entrance into the UNR. (Mod RNG)
    • Commonwealth of Iceland: Iceland proposes the Helluland Proclamation, which would make Helluland an independent nation, albeit allied with the United Nordic Republics and their interests. Proponents of the proclamation believe that the time for Helluland's independence has long since passed. Opponents believe that such an act would only encourage warmongering from Algonquia. The Helluland Proclamation does not pass. An air force base in Rejkyavik is established this year. Iceland requests to purchase the German strip of territory in Greenland.

1972

  • United Kingdom of Germany: Construction of several Tyr V rockets, the design planned to be sent to the moon, begin. The referendum on Kuba's status is held in February. The results are: 49% for maintaining the current personal union, 45% for re-integration into Germany, and 6% for severing ties. After post-referendum negotiations between German and Kuban representatives a deal is agreed upon between the two, Kuba and Germany will remain separate entities, with separate legislatures, laws, militaries, etc. The one shared thing, other than their head of state, is the Imperial and Royal Space Agency. It is also agreed that the German House of Electors will attempt to find another option for King of Germany other than Mary's heir in Kuba, Karl, upon her death, thereby splitting the two from a shared monarch. The German-Kuban deal is passed by the German Diet, and signed by the German Chancellor.
    • Kingdom of Kuba: The outcome of the referendum, and the subsequent deal, is met with approval among both the commoners and the nobility, and is unanimously ratified by the Kuban Diet.
    • Yeah, no. I am flashing back to post war Kuba, trying to do the same thing with Belize. Not OK.
    • What are you talking about, when did I mention anything about Belize?
    • When you tried to do a similar (albeit with some differences) with Kuba and belize post war, and then everyone threatend to invade you.
    • The difference is that King Mary was offered the German throne by the House of Electors, some twenty years later. I even put in the deal that this Kuba-Germany personal union will end with her death. Seriously, I posted that when Mary became King, all she wanted was peace. Now, peace-loving King Mary is on the German throne. I mean come on, this is ridiculous. It's not like I'm stationing nukes on Kuba and pointing them at you, in fact, as I just said, all Mary wants is peaceful coexistence, trade, cooperation, and to explore space, and you're rushing to war like she's Hitler.
    • Kuba and Germany can not be one nation. Period. Your intentions are irrelevant. I don't care what you do to resolve that, but somehow Germany and Kuba must be separate.
  • They aren't one nation, they are two that share a monarch. They have different laws, different militaries, different Diets and so on and so forth. I have also stated clearly that the personal union will end with the death of Mary II.
  • 'Germany and Kuba are de facto separate states, and the only thing tying them together is a monarch. We are literally telling you that once that monarch dies (probably in a decade or thereabouts) the personal union will end, and Kuba will do its own thing. And secondly "Your intentions are irrelevant." ... Erm, no they aren't. If you had the slightest shred of knowledge in foreign affairs and diplomacy you would know that intentions are extremely important. If you guys want to rush to war because you are personally pissed off, you better have some serious justification. Germany and Kuba in a PU isn't justifacation for war. Germany putting nukes on the island, arming our European borders, and establishing a naval blockade around Reme is definitely justification, but guess what, we aren't doing any of that. Furthermore, you guys seemingly love to talk crap about me and guy every chance you get, saying that our reputation on the world stage is sooooo tarnished. Yeah, see how your reputation stands after declaring war on a peaceful, non-threatening nation which you won't even let into the UN. You guys will look like bullies and, frankly, foolish. Speaking of the UN, since you guys are all itching to declare war, wouldn't it be obligated for you guys to convene the entire body of nations to discuss war? I'm not talking solely about Borealia and Andea, I'm talking about every single member (even though, let's face it, 'they are all probably cronies or people who randomly hate me or guy). Also note: Mary II is somewhat elderly at this point in time. Once she dies, which will probably be 10 or 20 years AT MAX, the PU is ended. Kuba and Germany, who aren't united even now, will certainly go their separate ways after she dies (probs in like 1980 or 1985).
  • 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 ninth season of the Korean anime, Thunderclouds. Construction on the Korea International Motor Racing Circuit continues. Hyun Sung-jae from South Central Daegu creates a new genre, known as Hip-hop, and soon becomes popular within the city.
  • 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 is 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 cirle 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 Manchuria. The Philippines and Papua are offered membership in the economic sphere of the Indo-Pacific Trade Alliance (mod response). Reme and Korea influence popular music, but some of these artists are frowned upon for their raunchy subjects, and leftists political tact. Germany continues to be condemned in the Kuban crisis, and war will be declared this year if Germany does not leave Kuba.
  • I love how you continually think Germany somehow is vassalizing or subjugating Kuba. Guess what? Kuba is still an independent nation, but is tied with Germany through a personal union ... That's it ... You can rethink declaring war now. - Cookie EDIT: Also, don't you pretty much lead the U.N? Like, I'm pretty sure the entire UN would be made irrelevant because their pissed-off leader rushed to war without consulting the entire body.
  • Of course we all know that you guys are separate and equally free, but that doesn't help our agenda. Therefore we have to pretend that you are somehow infringing upon Kuban freedom, in order to portray Germany in a negative light. It's nothing personal, just playing the most logical move. Anyway, as long as Germany and Kuba are only in a personal union that will be broken later, I'm fine with that. But you will be held to your word.
    • 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.
    • You complain about Germany in Kuba when you're in f*cking Antarctica. The pot is calling the kettle black. At least Kuba is inhabitable.
    • 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. The Phoebe continues to expand, while a probe is landed on the surface of Venus.
  • 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.
  • In Spain: new Prime Minister Dominic Carrera of the Union Party. Progressive movements. Rapidly shifting culture. Space stuff goes well. The moon project continues, and the second most important space goal for the great space program is Mars. Film and TV. Spain begins to convert to nuclear energy and stuff. Green Movement. Computers and stuff. The tallest building in the world is built in Madrid. Movement to legalize drugs.
  • Lordship of Neu Norderney: The government urges both sides of the Kuban Crisis to calm down. The new Conrad X Hydroelectric Dam is complete, and is officially opened by its namesake. The Reman "rock" music begins being played on the radio by NNR, and gains moderate success.
  • 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. Remus starts performing at large concerts in Miaymi and Cahokie, with their song, "The Stairway to Heaven", reaching number one on the Reman music charts. The three band members, Jayson, Louis and Napoleon start learning German and Greek, due to new performances being booked in Eastern Reme and New Vienna next year. Reme support Borrelia on the Kuba issue, and sends troops to the blockade.
  • Ruthenia: The Ruthenians continue to expand their nuclear infrastructure. The Kollada Airship company celebrates its fortieth anniversary.
  • 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. The Roman government insists that both sides of the Kuban crisis adhere to the provisions agreed upon in the Treaty of Constantinople rather than risk war. The military in Antillia is put on alert in case the worst happens.
  • 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.

The former Pskovian nations do not wish to join the UNR and instead would prefer to maintain their independence and neutrality in peace.

They wouldn't lose their independence but okay

  • United Kingdom of Germany: construction of the Tyr V moon rocket reaches completion, and is separated into its three stages for transport to the Prinz Karl Space Center outside of Guantanamo, Kuba. Borealia, Reme, and Andea are notified of the shipping schedule, and are also notified that German diplomatic staff and their families will be in the same convoy. The convoy will be unescorted, leaving from Germany on March 27 next year, giving them time for the convoys arrival. The three states are also sent a separate note, requesting that the blockade of Kuba be lifted, seeing as Kuba and Germany have broken no international law, and the action is as unnecessary as it is unprovoked.
  • Merely an observation, but if Germany and Kuba are really separate, why are they controlled in the same post? And if that is somehow necessary, then why isn't Germany listed underneath Kuba? You said, after all, that the King of Kuba is inheriting Germany, not the other way around
  • Its like when James VI of Scotland became king of England, he made England his primary title because England was the more powerful and prestigious country, same situation.
    • Kingdom of Kuba: Chancellor Adolf von Celle appoints several diplomatic staff for positions in European embassies, they are planned to be sent around the same time the convoy from Germany arrives to Kuba. Like with the German convoy, Borealia, Reme, and Andea are notified of the departure time next year. Despite being blockade by them, Kuba invites diplomats and represtatives from Borealia, Reme, and Andea to the planned 1975 launch of the Tyr V moon rocket.
    • Borealia reminds Germany that any ship violating the blockade, no matter its purpose, will be dealt with immediately.
    • Germany tells Borealia that it's welcome to inspect either convoy if it so wishes, but both sets of diplomatic staff have positions they need to fill.
    • Andea reminds Germany that if any ship violates the blockade, it will be war, and any ships attempting to break the blockade will be sunk.

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. Remus' perfomances in New Vienna and surrounding villigas creates increased excitement for countercultural movements throughout the nation. The Prophet-President of the Reformist Church claims new visions to put their support on these movements. Meanwhile, the Borealian Navy stops the German ships going to Kuba and boards them, stripping them of any weapons and ammunition. After returning to their own ships, the Borealian navy keeps the German ships stationary until the Andean Navy arrives, at which point the Germans are left to Andea's disgression. The military is moblized in southern Reme in anticipation of retaliation.
    • Colony of North Antarctica: The Antarctic base grows into a small village, centered arounf the Great Lighthouse. A mining operation is under way to find fossilized life under the ice. A second base is designed to be built farther south, demarcating the antarctic claims taken from Germany after the second World War.
    • 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. The Phoebe base continues to expand, with orbital probes successfully sent to the inner gas giants. A manned mission to Mars is expected to be completed in ten years.
  • Lordship of Neu Norderney: Jacqueline is in an apoplexy of excitement as Remus arrives to play. The concerts are sold out in record time, but that doesn't stop thousands of those who couldn't get tickets from crowding around the outside of the arena to hear their music idols. Such is the popularity of the band that it is even rumoured that some nuns snuck out of their convent-school to hear the band. Whilst the Church (through the schools, all of which it runs) denounces the "idol worship" some youngsters show for the band members. The music itself is not generally opposed, mainly because it is so damn catchy. The popularity of Remus encourages a number of Neu Norderner teenagers to form their own bands. The economy improves - some analysts say due to the mere presence of the band.
  • In Spain: Progressive movements. Rapidly shifting culture. Space stuff goes well. The moon project continues, and the second most important space goal for the great space program is Mars. Film and TV. Spain continues to convert to nuclear energy and stuff. Green Movement grows. Computers and stuff. Movement to legalize drugs grows.
  • 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. He proves to be an amazing bass player, and joins Remus. His mustache quickly becomes a popular thing about him, and is dubbed "The Corpral" for his personality. Reme develops a couple nukes, only to be used in self defense in an attack. Remus plays in Neu Nordney and gains massive popularity among the people there, thanking the people for the great turnout. The band decides to go on a world tour next year starting in Neu Gotland (New York). Remus also supports the counter-cultural revolution in Reme.
  • Republic of Natal: With the decolonisation of Africa, the Afrikaner population takes power and establishes the apartheid, with this black citizens are treated as second class in every field. The government hands our grants and free land to any white people wanting to emigrate to the country, to encourage growth in the white population. Our economy is improved with more advance farming and mining equipment, though investment into civilian nuclear power begins to replace the aging coal stations. We offer Suid Afrika to join our nation and form a Volkstaat state (mod response).
  • 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 miniaturise the warheads to fit on ICBM missiles. The Roman government insists that both sides of the Kuban crisis adhere to the provisions agreed upon in the Treaty of Constantinople rather than risk war. The military in Antillia is put on alert in case the worst happens.
  • 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.

1975

South Africa will consider the possibility of closer relations but requires more information and better ties before committing to a union with Natal.

  • 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.
  • 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 twelth season of the Korean anime, Thunderclouds. Anime and manga see a huge rise in popularity due to the success of the long running anime series, Thunderclouds; and new artists and writers begin to produce their own. Construction on the Korea International Motor Racing Circuit continues. Hip-hop and rock music grow in popularity in Korea. Reggae music also rises in popularity, as Jung Chang-ryeol creates more music in the genre and becomes more famous. Alternate energy is invested in, and soon some wind farms begin construction.
  • 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 is 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.

The World Trade Center and United Nation Building in New Munich stand as symbols of the world economy. A great many Gothic and LDS supporters protest against the Curia's action in Kuba, which the government does not comment on. The local governments in California and Pannenstiel begin conspiring to "seek their own path", borrowing terminology from Remus' song. Meanwhile, a physicist named Robert Braun is kicked out of the University of New Vienna, because he claims to have theorized a way of traveling through time using modern technology. Dr. Braun has subsequently disappeared.

Remus, while performing in Neu Gotland, turns into a tragedy; During the song "All You Need Is Love" an Arcadian nationalist named Albert Ackermøn opens fire upon stage, hiting Napoleon Bonaparte in his left foot. Fans quickly tackled Albert to prevent him from firing at other band members, but not without taking 2 innocent civilians first. As a result, the Remus world tour is canceled and set to resume next year. Reman media opinion on Arcadia changes, which brings to question the growing Arcadian separatist movement and the dangers of gun use.
  • Ruthenia: The Ruthenians continue to expand their nuclear infrastructure.
  • Lordship of Neu Norderney: With the exponential increase in nuclear stockpiles worldwide, many in the population, including the Church, form anti-nuclear groups and lobby the government to oppose nuclear proliferation in the UN. Influenced by the groundswell of popular support and, significantly, by the Bishop of Jacqueline, the ruling Catholic-Socialist Coalition makes opposing nuclear proliferation part of its official platform, and promises to bring it up in the UN next year. In other news, the tragic events at Remus' concert are met with sadness. The economy improves.
    • Borealia will welcome the proposal from New Norderney, and in the same conference will put forward a proposal regonizing New Norderney as a full participating member of the UN.

  • United Kingdom of Germany: the convoy, after returning to Germany last year after a lack of response from Andea, leaves for its second trip to Kuba, still carrying diplomatic staff, their families, and the stages of the Tyr V moon rocket, it is expected to reach Kuba next year. Borealia, Reme, and Andea are again asked to end the unprovoked blockade. Germany turns to fellow Holy League member Rome for assistance in trying to peacefully end the needless blockade.
    • Kingdom of Kuba: the launch of the Tyr V rocket is postponed indefinitely, until the arrival of the rocket stages. As the space program has become a great source of pride among the citizens, attitude towards the blockading nations drops even lower.
    • Borealia warns that it and Andea were very merciful to the previous passage of ships, and any other ships approcahing Kuba, under any circumstance, will be immediately appropriated without parlay.
    • Germany responds that if Borealia and Andea were as merciful as they claim, they wouldn't have established a blockade, unprovoked, around a peaceful island that poses no threat to them.

Meanwhile, the Curia adopts New Norderney's policy that the nuclear nations at the end of World War II should not allow any more proliferation of such technology. Although Borealia is willing to support nuclear arms in other nations (such as Reme), this armament should be strictly under the supervision of the original nuclear nations: Borealia, Andea, Brazil, and Spain. All the former German nations in the UBH are made full participating members of the UN, unless another security council member vetos the decision.

  • 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 is 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 in 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.

  • United Nordic Republics
      • ​Republic of Denmark: The economy of Denmark flourishes as it works to bring trade in the Baltic through Copenhagen. Still profiting from World War II, the Danish economy is beginning to enter an age of prosperity in the 20th century. The Danish general elections occur this year, with the Socialist front leading in a sweeping victory. With tensions between Germany and the Hesperian League rising, people in Denmark turn to anti-war protests as the Republic of Denmark declares neutrality in the world before it even begins. Danish rock music becomes popular.
      • Republic of Sweden: Sweden also sees profit. With money flowing into the Kattegat and out of Pskovian wallets, there is one undoubted ruler of the Baltic Seas now. Telephone lines are built in Sweden as electricity is brought to the northern cities and towns of Sweden. The Republic of Sweden commissions two destroyers into the Swedish fleet. There are now over 230 ships flying Swedish colors.
      • Republic of Norway: Norway's navy guards the North Sea as it protects its interests from pirates and would-be assailants in the North Atlantic. The economy of Norway improves this year as trade floods into the nation, especially the city of Oslo, which rivals even Copenhagen as the trading capital of the Baltic. In the meantime, a frigate is added to the Norwegian naval assets. A plane is also built this year. An air force base is established outside Oslo.
      • Republic of Finland: The Republic of Finland trades heavily with Livonia this year while Helsinki, the easternmost trade capital of the Baltics, sees renovation. An air force base is established near Helsinki while three planes are built this year for the Finnish Air Force.

Several covered cruisers, which saw action in WWI, are scrapped this year and used for parts for newer ships.
      • Commonwealth of Iceland: Iceland proposes the Helluland Proclamation, which would make Helluland an independent nation, albeit allied with the United Nordic Republics and their interests. Proponents of the proclamation believe that the time for Helluland's independence has long since passed. Opponents believe that such an act would only encourage warmongering from Algonquia. The Helluland Proclamation does not pass. An air force base in Rejkyavik is established this year. Iceland requests to purchase the German strip of territory in Greenland.
  • 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 miniaturise the warheads to fit on ICBM missiles. The Roman government insists that both sides of the Kuban crisis adhere to the provisions agreed upon in the Treaty of Constantinople rather than risk war. The military in Antillia is put on alert in case the worst happens. The Roman government acknowledges the request of the Germans, and suggests that the Roman Empire act as a mediating force between the two sides in a hope to end the dispute once and for all.
  • 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.

  • Lordship of Neu Norderney: Grateful of Borealia sponsoring our UN membership last year, Lord Conrad X, still a young man, makes an impassioned speech to the Assembly against the proliferation of nuclear weaponry. The speech, rich in rhetorical and metaphorical devices, combines Catholic theology with the language of the growing counter-culture. It is printed in its entirety in the Jacqueline Tagesblatt under the title Pacem in Terris. It is an immediate success, gaining the young Lord the respect of both the established hierarchy and Church, as well as that of the younger generation. To further show his dedication to peace, the Lord signs a Crown Directive allowing youths in the National Service to opt-out and instead do their time in the Zivildienst.

1978

  • United Kingdom of Germany and Kingdom of Kuba: Germany again demands that the blockade be lifted, still asserting that it didn't break the Treaty of Constantinople. Some begin wondering if Borealia pushed for the blockade after Kuba, and subsequently Germany as well, began preparing for a lunar mission, and didn't want anyone but its friends challenging it scientifically. While the position isn't the stance of the governments of Kuba or Germany, it grows popular among the common population.
