The majority of the Brazilian coast is cleared, and the remaining Brazilian population clings to the shore. Much of the Brazilian Amazon is abandoned.
A small protest occurs in Buenos Aires over the concentration camps revealed almost a year earlier.
A suspected United Republic is assassinated in a large Communist training camp. The find heightens security, causing the death of another twelve individuals after reasonable suspicion.
The nation of Deseret begins a massive military training program, drafting hundreds of individuals into a national army. After the last few years dedicated to building a formidable force and clearing northern Utah, the army score of Deseret upgrades to 1.25.
After years of being at war, China’s stability drops to 40.
Despite the backlash from the Islamic world, the Turkish government orders its military to stay firm. Hundreds of soldiers are executed, and thousands more are disciplined to stay loyal to the Turks. In major cities the government soldiers barricade themselves in, trapping the rebels into the countryside. Propaganda is used to display the EHU as savages who have corrupted the holy cities, and the Soviets as monstrous invaders.
Japan: Japan continues to build up the Self Defence Forces and infrastructure is improved. The Self Defence Forces continue to burn down infected areas in Kyūshū, and continue pushing the Zombies out of the island. Part of the Maritime Self Defence Force continues to fight against the outbreak and attempts to prevent it from spreading across into Shikoku, while the Air Self Defence Force bombs the infected areas within Kyūshū. Some of the Ground Self Defence Forces at Ishikawa Prefecture continue burning down infected areas and pushing the Zombies out; the Scorched Earth tactic is also used. Any people that show any sign of infection are still to be destroyed immediately. The Zen Taoist Temple continues construction in Sapporo. Synthpop continues to rise in popularity.
Alaska: Naval Development reaches 1.5
Commonwealth: The massive project in Canberra is finished. Workers flooded in to find that this is an advanced research center for the UCO. That Friday, the Commonwealth Government officially unveils the purpose of the project, stating that it is indeed a research center for the UCO. It is also announced that another project for testing the Zombie virus on animals, a large glass dome with several levels of decontamination between the research center and the dome will be started within two years. Sends thousands of militants to assist our Turkish allies. Continues development. (Additional note: I'd like to upgrade everything in succession to each other whenever possible, as I feel I have fallen behind due to this system.)
Yemeni Rebels: With half of the country, a majority of the regions, population, and capital city under its control finally, As'ad Nejem takes advantage of the broadcasting equipment found in the new regions to broadcast his message across the rest of government Yemen. In his message, he calls for the peaceful surrender of the government forces, with full amnesty on the condition they all swear oath to his new government. The main reason he does this is so as to not use what precious resources he has left from Operation Allah's Freedom.
- United Republics Diplomacy: An anonymously sent satellite picture of non-rebel land is sent to the Yemeni rebels by a UR official, showing where the remaining government stronghold.
- RoS Diplomacy: The RoS government authorizes the shipment of ten thousand M-19's to rebel forces, and launches an airstrike on the Yemen government's capitol city with bombers. Three infantry units are pulled from Turkey and sent to fight with the rebels, and train them. The government also recognizes the Yemen rebels as the official government and opens an embassy in their capitol city. The RSS Independence, the RSS Nixon, and the RSS Washington, along with fifteen AT-1 transports are deployed to Yemen to attack the Yemen Navy Forces, and ask in return if we can purchase Socotra at the end of the war for $100,000,000; ten 1A4 transports; and three F-4A fighters
- Yemeni Rebel D: As'ad Nejem agrees to selling Socotra, and thanks both the United Republics and the Republic of Susquehanna for their generous aid given to the rebel forces.
- RoS Diplomacy: Your welcome. More airstrikes hit the Yemen Government, and RoS infantry lands in Al Mahrah Governorate, and seize the city of Nishtun. The RSS Nixon fires shells into Sayhut, leveling the port of the city, and Flight 1 hovers over the city, eliminating air defenses and the outer defenses, leaving it helpless to the rebels and RoS military forces. The RoS government decides to concentrate on taking over mainland Yemen, then conquer Socotra after the mainland is overtaken.
Colombia: The Army of Santander leads a campaign into the amazons expanding to some extent the Republic in the now barely populated regions, and the bases, the size of New York City, become the point to contact the Brazilians, expansion in Northern Peru and Nicaragua, continues, and military is built up.
- United Republics Diplomacy: Would like to conduct a summit with Colombia to discuss the future of South America, creating an economic and research union, and discuss other plans.
Tibet: Seeing that the revolution is making no progress, Tibet will either become a theocracy or a military dictatorship and that Tibetan deaths are way higher than Chinese deaths, the Tibetan people wrote a declaration, signed by more than 100 village heads and mayors, for integration into China. After the Tibetan surrender, Kalsang surrendered to China, followed by the Dalai Lama, forced by his advisors.
This turn is slightly implausible and gives me reason to suspect you're being sockpuppeted by China.
Confederate Islands: The Government of the Confederate Islands works really hard to expand their economies and then also invites Sicily, Malta, and the Belearic Islands to join the Confederacy. (MODS please?)
Florida: Work on phylaxocortin continues. It is almost ready for use on humans. We begin building another full-size aircraft carrier, the FSS Kestrel (identical to the OTL Nimitz-class). After a long hiatus from space launches (Arkangel was launched last turn), we launch an Apollo capsule with an all-military crew to test the feasibility of dropping special forces troops into combat zones from orbit using a miniaturized reentry capsule known as an SOEIV capsule. They drop one capsule with a dummy in it, and it is a success. Work on Star Wars is almost finished. In the meantime, Universal begins running a new sci-fi TV show, Battlestar Galactica, which proves to be a cult favorite. We also begin offering massive tax breaks and funding to high-tech companies that move their headquarters to Florida. The government is also offering to pay for the move. We are specifically targeting companies such as Microsoft (RNG please).
- RoS Diplomacy: We ask the Floridian Government to assist us with an aerospace program.
Cuba: Forces continue Haitian force. We demand complete Haitian surrender.
(RNG 1-5 :no 6-10: yes. 7 Yes)
You need an algorithm (several probably) for the invasion. You then need to occupy and successful fight the Haitians. All RNG's need to be done by a moderator, usually in a mod event.
United Republics: The forces in Lisbon begin to wall the city to protect from infection. UR forces are working to help establish the Lisbon government. A plan is sent to the leaders of RdJ and Sao Paulo to enter the UR is three years as they have been re-industrialized and commercialized by UR workers and militants. They would enter as the Republic de Sao Paulo et Rio de Janeiro. Population in these cities support the measure due to the aid and re-invigoration of the society. To address the concern about concentration camps the UR and Argentina both give further evidence that the camps were just interrogation and some soldiers who used questionable techniques against the UR forces field guide, and the soldiers were reassigned to other duties in Antarctica and on islands. The UR continues to develop solar panels and installs them all over the mountainous regions and southern regions. All communities except for major cities should be able to power their own local power grids within the next five years. Using information from agents that the Communist militants are very unstable. The UR is able to further infiltrate the Communist militants by replacing all the killed members with their own special agents. This brings UR infiltration to 15-20% of all soldiers and leaders. Paraguay's economy is on the rise as they stabilize their connections with the rest of the UR. The UR forces secretly begin build-up and plan to invade southern Bolivia and Peru.
Republic of Susquehanna: Fire is put out in Centralia. The government unveils the C-80 cargo plane to the public which was under wraps for several years, and promptly ships Turkey ten thousand M-19's, and some natural gas. The subway in Williamsport is finished and opened. Work is restarted at the Appalachian Launch Facility, and plans are released for the Longstreak LEO/GEO rocket.
New Chan Santa Cruz: With apparent inaction from the Mexican government old tensions begin to stir and Chan Santa Cruz revolts again. It proves successful and a new state is established. In a broadcast to the people of the world we ask for international recognition, so as to stop Mexico from retaking our land, the land of our fathers, so that the Maya people may once again determine our own destiny.
The Brazilian army enters the south of Brazil. The city of Rio De Janeiro, and other coastal cities are fortified, and humanitarian aid begins to trickle into large settlements.
EHU forces surround the Turkish city of Iskenderun, in preparation for a push up the coast to Adana. In the east EHU soldiers manage to reach Lake Van.
Soviet forces take the Turkish province of Erzurum, after taking heavy casualties.
Violence continues between Tibet and China, with neither side making much ground. Morale on the Chinese side significantly decreases.
Japan: Japan continues to build up the Self Defence Forces and infrastructure is improved. The Self Defence Forces continue to burn down infected areas in Kyūshū, and continue pushing the Zombies out of the island. Part of the Maritime Self Defence Force continues to fight against the outbreak and attempts to prevent it from spreading across into Shikoku, while the Air Self Defence Force bombs the infected areas within Kyūshū. Some of the Ground Self Defence Forces at Ishikawa Prefecture continue burning down infected areas and pushing the Zombies out; the Scorched Earth tactic is also used. Any people that show any sign of infection are still to be destroyed immediately. The Zen Taoist Temple continues construction in Sapporo and will be done by the end of the year. Synthpop continues to rise in popularity.
Republic of Susquehanna: Seeing the destabilizing situation in Turkey, the RoS government offers the Turkish government asylum if they lose. More guns are sent to the Turks, and a flight of B-52's bomb EHU oil wells. Troops in Yemen capture more of the coastline, and five 1A4 Leopard tanks are sent to the rebel factions in Yemen. The military force is upgraded to 1.5. Work continues on the aerospace program, and in secret, the government begins work on a nuclear bomb.
Alaska: Naval development reaches 1.75. The government begins to take a census, which will occur every ten years as in OTL.
- Can someone explain the rules on upgrading. We had a twice every two years, then we didn't, then we had three month turns, now its six. Can Mscoree clarify what the new rules on upgrading are? Thanks! G greg e (talk)
- Every turn you can upgrade one thing by 0.25. You can upgrade three times in five turns.
Commonwealth: Education system is given extra funding and students, of whom are capable to make decisions of what they want to do, are given more freedom in their core class selection, as well as option class selection. Continues work on the New Zealand project and establishing order in occupied Guniea (Could someone please do me an algorithm? I kinda suck at them) Continues to upgrade army score, reaches 2.5. Continues development on all fields.
Turkey: Because of Soviet troops entering the province of Erzurum, about 300,000 troops were redeployed to the region. Turk Mil Sat 1 has started jamming Soviet satellites, naval vessels, military bases, airfields, towns and cities. Radio jamming has taken a heavy toll on air, naval, and landbased Soviet forces. With the Russian Navy unable to launch guided missiles its ability to rule the seas is virtually gone, and weapon systems rely on CIWS to protect themselves or defend themselves at point black range with 5in guns. Within weeks the Soviet Navy is scattered and unable to communicate with each other. An operation in the Black Sea has started known as Operation Black Gauntlet. Two aircraft carriers were redeployed in the Black Sea along with three battleships and 50 destroyers, ten Caspian-Class Cruisers, 20 Janissary-Class Frigates, five Samsun-Class Heavy Cruisers, ten Konya-Class Submarines, and five Hunter-Class Submarines. Rocket artillery batteries were stationed on the coast and have started firing upon the Soviet fleet. Soviet submarines were destroyed by depth charges launched by task forces of destroyers and cruisers, and Balaklava Submarine Base was soon destroyed after multiple bunker buster bombs launched by the new C-22 Ghost Stealth Bomber destroyed walls and flooded the whole base with sea water. All LAMS and anti-aircraft weaponry are put on high alert. Turkey is now a no fly zone with anything going through the anti-aircraft umbrella getting annihilated. Only supplies are allowed into the nation by plane.
Turkey’s ICBM test was a success after it was conducted in the rural province of Van. A new ICBM model was created known as the Sultan I ICBM MIRV, with ten separate warheads. 600 of these ICBMs have been built and have been equipped in newly built missile silos across the nation or in the new Adana-Class Submarine. Twenty of these submarines have been built and equipped. A retaliation plan to save the crew of the patrol boats in Sealand has been conducted. Maroon Beret scuba divers boarded the ships in the dead of night and recaptured the ships after one hour of fighting. The ships were soon taken back and sailed away from Sealand, leaving the micro nation unprotected. Another battle in the North Sea has taken place with the Soviet Navy. Three battleships were sent in to destroy the rest of the Soviet navy including the Soviet Aircraft Carrier, Kiev. Without a battleship to act as a point guard for the Soviet Fleet, the battleships were sent in with heavy cruisers, in half an hour the Soviet North Sea Fleet has been sunk including the Kiev, or damaged and is currently retreating and is still being attacked by fighter bombers. Soviet submarines have been captured within the North Sea after the destruction of many submarine pens in the Kara Sea. Submarines have been forced to surface up after lack of supplies and have been captured by the Turkish Fleet. With the Soviet North Fleet virtually destroyed Turkey now has the advantage of the sea in the region. Cypriot forces have been sent to help the Turkish fight back the EHU. We ask the United Republics, the Commonwealth, Alaska and Florida to aid us in this war. Guided missile strikes and C-96 Carpetrunners have commenced bombing runs on the Caucasus Region affecting the economy and supplies of the Soviet forces attacking Turkey, and other regions nearby. With the incapability of the EHU having air-support, Turkish Air Force fighters and fighters of the Soviet Air Force have conducted a major air conflict over the province of Erzurum, with the Turkish fighters gaining air superiority. Supply lines and helicopters are destroyed supplying the EHU and Soviet forces. Drone strikes and bombing runs have taken place on airfields across the Caucasus Region, destroying a majority of the Soviet Air Force in the region, and airfields. Air superiority is now declared on the Turkish side. FOBs in the region of Erzurum have been attacked by stealth bombers equipped with cluster smart bombs; each bomb has a blast radius of one-quarter of a km. Within the last nine months about 500,000 troops have been recruited to help protect against the EHU. President Tekin Ariburun has made an announcement to the nation: “Our great nation is in a point of instability. Times are brutal, but we will rise back up from the ashes and will fight back with the ultimate force. The EHU, an alliance that we’ve supported for a decade and since their origin has betrayed us. Killing thousands as their bloody campaigns spill the blood of our people, leaving ruins of our land in their paths. In retaliation to stop the war, we’ve erased their capitals from the face of the Earth, ensuring damage on their part as well. When I was elected as the president of the people, I was assigned one simple task, to ensure the security and prosperity of our people. I’m failing to accomplish this task because of one thing, our own people. It is not possible to come out of the ashes and fight back with a victory unless you stop the unnecessary violence on your own governments that feed you, protect you, and shelter you in a time of emergency like this. You must stand up and fight alongside the government you sworn to live under peacefully. Let the Turkish people stand up and let the world hear our voices. We’ve already lost our land once to a great revolution once and we will not lose it again to invaders of our great territory. They’re only attacking us because of one reason, and the reason is that we are better than them, the governments of these hostile nations are simply just jealous of our stable economy and nation. Remember who you fight for, and who you speak for, our great nation will prevail and rise from the streets of Ankara and fight back the invaders. This has been a message from President of Turkey Tekin Ariburun to the people.” (OOC: I’m back, playing as Turkey again. I’ve also started making a new map game as well which will possibly start within a month or less after its completion. Edboy452 (talk))
- Commonwealth Diplomacy: 30,000 men and women are sent to aid the Turkish Forces in their war. The President states publicly that we should be focusing on the threat of Zombies, not religious disputes or political disputes.
- United Republics Diplomacy: At this time we are unable to send any armed forces to any conflicts. However, Prime Minister of Foreign Affairs Sir. Rex Masterman (FALK) requests that both parties join a summit to come to a ceasefire and begin working on a peace agreement. The UR secretly sends aid and supplies to the Turkish government forces as well as satellite pictures of key EHU bases, refineries, supply lines, and defenses, thus giving Turkey an ambush/intelligence advantage in the war. The UR offers to build naval forces in exchange for design plans of ships, future trade agreements, and/or military development/training.
- RoS Diplomacy: The Republic of Susquehanna offers the Turkish Government and the UR a military alliance. We ask both nations to recognize the Yemeni Rebels as the actual government of Yemen, and support them. One armored unit (Unit 6) is deployed into Iskenderun, and paratroopers storm the city. Flight 4 attacks the EHU positions, and the RoS retakes the city with medium casualties. Airstrikes launched at Damascus, and hit the remnants of the Soviet Navy, officially eliminating the rest of the fleet. The RSS Freedom, and the RSS Washington shell the Soviet anti-air weapons, and attack roads in the Soviet Union.
- RoS Diplomacy: Marines storm Socotra, and capture the Yemen Navy.
Tibet: Kalsang attacked Dalai Lama again and the people rebelled against both governments because it wasn't the democracy they hoped for. Now, Tibet is divided into three factions, Chen Shin Ka, democratic controls Western Tibet, with capital at Ali, Kalsang controls East Tibet with capital at Qamdo and the Dalai Lama controls central Tibet with capital at Lhasa.
United Republics: The UR populace re-elects Alfonsin (Arg) as President of Internal Affairs citing the inclusion of Paraguay, the path into the union established with Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, as well as the increase in economics, infrastructure and industrialization. Supplies, aid and satellite help are secretly sent to Turkey. The 1980 census announces the estimated population of the UR at about 46 million people (28 mil Arg, 11 mil Chile, 3 mil Para, 4 mil Uru, 3k Falk, 1k Ant and Mag). With these numbers, Sir Masterson and the legislative branch of the UR pass a resolution to increase military numbers up to 500,000 soldiers, an additional 100,000 doctors and military scientists, and a goal of implementing another 100,000 people into militant roles within the next three years. Due to these improvements, UR military score advances to 1.75. The UR invades the two southern provinces of Bolivia with information from agents within (that now number just under 25% of leaders and soldiers). In a D-Day style invasion, UR forces surprise Communist forces expecting an attack in Peru, as they go straight after the capitol. Within the first three days the UR is able to capture Santa Cruz Province, Tarija, Potosi, and Chuquisaca (already had military in Santa Cruz as defensive force), then over the next three months, with heavy casualties about 20,000 UR forces - these forces are quickly redeployed as defensive only forces. However, Communist forces are down to about 100,000 total (50k in Bolivia, 50k in Peru), the UR is able to take over Sucre, Cochobamba, and Oruro. Immediately UR Air Force drops supplies, and soldiers begin to establish defenses around important cities and the Amazon forest. The UR attempts to adapt and respect the Rights of Mother Earth in the building, but many citizens understand that defensive structures must be put up. Agents still within the Communist militants report that the militants are moving into northern Peru and nearly out of Bolivia as a whole). Three months late in Northern Bolivia the UR undergoes another heavy conflict. UR forces with extreme casualties ie 35,000 are able to kill and defend nearly all the Communist forces that were Bolivia, remaining forces have been forced to join with the forces in Peru, and seem to retreat off into Northern Peru hoping to rebuild their numbers (however, due to continued UR funding of political parties in Peru, this will be a difficult and tiresome task) Total Communist numbers reside under 60k, while remaining UR ground forces resides at 445k men and women. The UR declares October 29th, a holiday to celebrate the lost lives in this struggle to liberate the Bolivian people. Bolivia is given a path to reconstruct itself under the title the Multinational Republics of Bolivia, and UR officials work on a path to join the UR as a client/vassel state immediately, and are working toward full membership. Many UR families are glad to see this invasion come to a completed halt, and many soldiers who participated in these conflicts are given medals, many benefits, and a free education if they did not have one. These benefits are made standard and this ends up with 30,000 men joining the ground forces and another 5k joining the navy. The results are the UR expanding again (-6). Immediately the UR begins a project called the Native Peoples Act, giving native communities in the Andeas and near the Amazon Forrest the ablitly to live their way of life and construct their own laws - within reason. For the final time, the UR once again offers to meet with the leader of the remaining Communist forces to come to a peace agreement. (All algorithms present on talk page.)
- South Africa asks for an Alliance and Trading Deal with the United Republics.
China: To increase the morale of Chinese soldiers, Deng made a speech in the front line, urging them to go on and continue. An excerpt was "Continue Comrades, continue. We shall rise from the puny obstacles dealt by the Imperialistic Tibet Government. We shall defeat the Fascists and liberate the Tibetans. We shall rise in full power, in our prime and crush the Tibet Government with all our might, showing once and for all that the Chinese shall never be defeated!". More ZhengHe aircraft carriers are built in the fortified ports of Dalieng and Lushung. Qubin A.C.V's and Hanxin tanks were sent to the front line in Tibet, as well as Thunder Howitzer Guns. The Air force is built and bombs Qamdo regularly, around once a day. Missile lauchers were also sent and fired on Tibetan positions, seriously weakening them. On July, The Chinese 300,000 army, for social and morale reasons, with Manchurian and Japanese support, assaulted Qamdo, hoping for a victory. (Mod Please) Meanwhile, China advances to 2.75 industrial score and Deng inquires the United Nations about China's current money score and what is the term money score? DongShen begins making consumer products, such as toilet paper.
Manchuria: Manchuria keeps sending aid and soldiers to their allied Chinese. Industrial Production continues. Quiet Year.
New Chan Santa Cruz: Construction of a large wall around the perimeter is begun. This wall will be five foot thick and seven foot high, the first in a planned series of fortifications. All people are provided with a slingshot and required to train for an hour a day (the slingshot being an effective and simple weapon against a Zombie - for example a well thrown stone will cause decapitation or pulp the head.). While this, increases wall construction time, it means people have a better defense against Zombies. A (very simple) desalinization plant is built on the coast to provide uncontaminated water. We again ask for international recognition so that Mexico will be forced to allow us to govern ourselves.
Bohemia: The Bohemians increase their industry by 0.25.
Colombia: The military is built up.it agrees with the United Republics and will meet with their rulers to do so. While this, expansion continues.
South Africa: The number of pregnant women continues to rise and toward the end of the year, the second predicted spike takes place. Another group of babies are born, and as a result the Zulu-Xhosa mixed ethnicity becomes official with a large group of babies part of the mixed group. The first stages of The Plan continue. Swaziland and Lesotho's economies grow as money is pumped into their nations' economies. Learners can now speak the national languages of South Africa and their respective countries in a fluent manner, completing their purpose. As a result, many of the classes shut down, having completed their purpose. Yet many refocus and offer tution classes and educational classes to children, to help educate them. The water starting to arrive through the canals helps the growth of the trees and also helps to grow a small number of crops (resources increase due to water?). A large irrigation network for water along with a very large number of reservoirs is finally finished. These reservoirs help to store up water and transport it to other parts of the nation. Construction on the biggest reservoir continues as the areas selected are cleared of inhabitants and wildlife. Excavation is started and by year's end, a huge area has been excevated to create the reservior. The land displaced is piled onto surrounding areas to create artifical hills. Even more employment is provided by the reservoir for people. However, most workers are black, due to their families still being worse off from the apartheid era. The ecnomic boom continues. Gold being extracted helps to pay for the refurbishment and bettering of factories. Tank factories continue churning out Cheetah I in smaller numbers and five hundred more are delivered to the Army. The Cheetah 2 is also pushed into production and one thousand of the newly developed tanks are delivered to the Army. The wildlife plan is going well, and many of South Africa's wild animals have now been saved as a result. Thousands of classes continue. Many millions can now speak the national languages in a fluent manner. This means that over 75% of the population knows how to speak the three national languages. The third batch of suburbs are completed and opened to sale to the general public. Blacks and whites continue to avoid buying houses next to each other. As more blacks marry into other Ethnic groups, it seems like the feeling of being black has prevailed. Lines are blurred between ethnic groups. A Zulu-Xhosa mixed ethnicity continues to form. A large amount of schools are constructed as a result of the suburbs built. Many of these schools are state-run, and free. As a result, black and white children are taught together in schools. The concept alienates many whites, but most are onboard with the idea. The army is trained up to be even better, with the tanks and troops training together. The offensive against Zombies continues and another two are cleared out. However, even more settlements have been wiped off the map, and many areas come under military jurisdiction. Some small Naval Frigates are also built in the nation. Their intention becomes clear once they are used to escort many members of the council to open up talks with the Dutch. The council reaches the Netherlands and establishes formal relations with the government. The Council asks the nation if they would like to enter into a Union with South Africa, to which they decline. However, a trading deal is agreed upon and an alliance with the Netherlands is asked (Mods, please). If they accept, then the South Africans will send in troops to help fight the Zombies and help keep the government in power.
Florida: Work continues on all fronts, incuding on our Antarctic base in the Transantarctic Mountains (within our Antarctic claim (which has not been recognized - details under "Map" on the Talk Page). We are about six months away from finishing phylaxocortin.
Rio De Janeiro is officially back in Brazilian hands. Brazil asks for a non-aggression pact, thanking them for their assistance in clearing the area around the city.
In the city of Santa Fe, New Mexico order is restored and the townspeople elect Tom Henderson as the first president of the city-state. Henderson, who is a big fan of 1950’s culture, begins a campaign to turn the town into a retro-pop culture society. Propaganda is created and buildings are refitted with neon lights and chrome decals to look the part.
The Islamic Liberation Mujahideen is founded as a loose affiliation of the EHU militia. The ILM army reaches over 1,500,000 soldiers at creation, with most of them entrenched in southern Turkey or Syria, alongside the regular EHU fighting force.
Despite the political division in Tibet, the Tibetan and rebel forces continue to fight against the Chinese.
The leaders of the South American Communists regroup in northern Peru. After several weeks the majority of all guerrilla forces answer to the Communist leaders in Peru. The rebels ask for peace with the United Republic, vowing to end hostilities and remove themselves from Chile and Bolivia. The Peruvian government also accepts the agreement.
The Bolivian government is re-established, and asks to remain independent. An alliance is offered to the United Republic.
With large portions of their forces overseas and entrenched in several conflicts, the Republic of Susquehanna's stability decreases to 43.
EHU supplies and soldiers continue to be sent to the Yemeni rebels. Despite this, the EHU forces are untrusting of the Susquehanna forces. The EHU asks the Yemeni rebels to not affiliate with Susquehanna, and until then will hold back on wide-scale support.
The Republic of Baja is declared in the former Mexican province. Centered around Ensenada, the government begins to grow and creates a small militia to clear the peninsula.
The second Austrian elections occurs, electing Amadeus Grün for a second term as Speaker of the House. See more information about the election here.
The Austrians hold the first council of the Holy Roman Empire to discuss a non-aggression pact between its members. It invites all German, Dutch and regional powers in the surrounding area to attend.
Libya, Algeria, and Morocco join the Turkish in the Middle East War. Although there are large protests, the uproar is quelled by several thousand executions in Libya, primarily.
The Netherlands accepts an alliance from South Africa.
Japan: Japan continues to build up the Self Defence Forces and infrastructure is improved. The Self Defence Forces continue to burn down infected areas in Kyūshū, and continue pushing the Zombies out of the island. Part of the Maritime Self Defence Force continues to fight against the outbreak and attempts to prevent it from spreading across into Shikoku, while the Air Self Defence Force bombs the infected areas within Kyūshū. Some of the Ground Self Defence Forces at Ishikawa Prefecture continue burning down infected areas and pushing the Zombies out; the Scorched Earth tactic is also used. Any people that show any sign of infection are still to be destroyed immediately. The Zen Taoist Temple finally finishes construction and is officially opened. More Zen Taoist Temples are planned to be built throughout Northern Japan. Synthpop continues to rise in popularity.
Commonwealth: Increased military activity has been noted by journalists and citizens in the southern alps of the New Zealand province, the government holds yet another controversial press conference in Canberra, stating that it is a secondary testing site for the UCO. When it is finished, in 1983, Canberran landscaping is completely revamped to give it a good, yet somewhat imperialistic feel to it (like nothing super authoritarian or anything, just a lot of flags and banners, eh? Maybe even a bit of propaganda? :P) Continues to send assistance to Turkey in their war.
United States: Following the aggressive behavior against Sealand, the small nation begins to fall into crisis. Sealand urgently calls the Channel League to meet in secret in Brighton. After much deliberation it is decided that any attack on Sealand will be deemed an attack on the League, and that the alliance must make steps to secure the security of its members. The Channel League issues the “Sealand Mandate”, stating that any ship that attacks a trade ship or war vessel of the Channel League will be attacked back. Following the Turkish seizing of the six Sealander patrol boats, that were in turn seized by Sealand from various merchants, the United States calls for the ship to be returned. Of the many ships stationed at Brighton, and in the Atlantic, fifty-four submarines, including twenty advanced nuclear-powered Los Angeles-class submarines, forty-two destroyers, and three aircraft carriers enter the English Channel under the jurisdiction and command of the Channel League. After a small naval engagement several Turkish ships are sunk, and Sealand is freed. Several thousand Channel League soldiers also storm the Turkish sector of Brighton naval base. The Turkish ships that are stationed there are forced to withdraw, some even without full crews or supplies. Several destroyers, submarines, and small ships are seized at the docks, and hundreds of sailors are arrested and made into prisoners of war. It is believed that Storm may have infiltrated the United States, and that they may start using weapons obtained from Turkey. After recent attacks on the USSR and in the Middle East utilizing dangerous nerve gases, it is decided that Khudafi must be removed, and the terrorist organizations operating in the region must answer to justice. The Channel Fleet works to pursue the fleeing the Turkish fleet, which is desperate for supplies. Planes are launched to patrol the skies near the fleeing fleet to make sure no supplies can be lifted in by air. A second fleet of about sixty submarines, seven aircraft carriers, seventy destroyers, and six battleships is ordered to intercept from the south and then enter into the Mediterranean over the course of several weeks. Once Turkey has been removed from the English Channel completely, it is planned that a designated Channel League Maritime Peace Fleet will be created, under the control of the Channel League council. Three Albany-class cruisers and one Maryland-class battleship is already designated to join the new fleet. With security firmly established in the west, the majority of soldiers along the Mississippi are pulled to the East Coast to join the already large peacekeeping force stockpiled there. About 450,000 soldiers are prepared and launched to Gibraltar, a neutral-affiliated state, in preparation for an invasion of North Africa. Rather than risk a costly naval invasion, a plan is drawn up calling for the US troops to be dropped in Egypt, where the Egyptian army had already entrenched themselves, awaiting a Libyan offensive into their territory. Although it is estimated that the Libyan army is only about 15,000 men strong, the Libyans, Algerians, and Moroccans, who had been preparing for an attack on Egypt, have their armies assembled and prepared. 150,000 soldiers are dropped in the first wave onto the Egyptian coast. Supplies and thousands of armor and transports are also dropped. A forward operations base is established at Marsa Mutrah, where the local airport and coastal highway is used to ship in supplies. Finally, the order is called to enter Libya, launching a massive land invasion into Libya. We ask all nations to end aid to Turkey until a stable government can be established. The United States calls for the UN and NATO to assist them in the peaceful operation in Libya, raising some support in Europe and elsewhere.
- RoS Diplomacy: The Republic of Susquehanna agrees to the United States request and will end shipments of lethal aid to Turkey and its allies. We respectfully ask the US to monitor Schukill Airfield in case if anything happens, because it is Turkish.
Republic of Susquehanna: Seeing the Turkish abusing the citizens, the fact NATO, and the US, an RoS ally are involved, and high enemy civilian casualties, the Republic of Susquehanna decides to withdraw troops from Turkey and officially declare neutrality in the war. The troops are sent to Yemen instead, and the RoS only ships humanitarian aid to all nations embrewed in the war, and ask for a peaceful resolution to the conflict. Meanwhile, work continues in Williamsport to expand the city. Edward J Bonin orders the National Guard to secure the perimeter of Schuykill Air Base, and prevent the Turkish troops from trying anything. Work continues on the nuclear weapons program, and the aerospace program. More farms are opened to increase food production, and self-reliability. The Turkish embassy is guarded from rioters by the Bloomsburg police.
Small protests occur around the country as people don't understand why the RoS is aiding rebels halfway around the world, and Turkey. The government releases a statement saying "People of this grand Republic, we have heard some discontent among you. Some don't understand why we are helping the Yemeni rebels, others don't see the need to aid Turkey. We are doing these things to bring justice to the Earth. Unfortunately some may have heard of the Turkish abuse of its citizens, and that we are fighting our allies, namely the United States. Due to that horrific matter, the government has pulled the military from Turkey until further notice. We are increasing aid to the Yemeni rebels, and are working to mediate peace in the Middle East. Thank you for your concern."
A Cessna 172 from the Coast Guard overflew a military camp. RoS troops stormed it, and captured the President of Yemen, along with the main general. They are flown back to Socotra for interrogation, and the lack of leadership leads to the Yemen military collapsing, and the RoS military taking the rest of the nation. Upgrade infrastructure to 1.5.Yemeni Rebels: The 1st United Infantry Division, and the 1st United Armored Division move swiftly across the land and mountains of Yemen, employing their previously mention tactic, now known as the Scalpel (Aircraft), Hammer (Artillery), and Sword (Infantry and Armored Units) of Allah. Infantry and Armor ride aboard seven recovered Polnocny-class landing craft, to aid in the Republic of Susquehanna invasion of Socotra. The fronts between the RoS and the Rebels are beginning to meet, signalling a near close to the long and deadly conflict that has ripped apart the nations of North and South Yemen. No government projects nor improvements are planned until the end of the current civil war.
- RoS Diplomacy: B-52's strike the remaining government forces, and the Columbia Guard infiltrates the government, sabotaging vehicles, supply lines, and communication. The RSS Washington is pulled out back to Socotra, and capture a shipment from Yemen government supporters, seizing 50 T-54/55 medium tanks, and give 30 to the rebels, the rest are sent to Socotra to guard the island.
Alaska: Naval development reaches 2.0.
United Republics: The UR and the Grand Columbian Republic Announce the formation of the League of Latin America - commonly known as Latin America League (LAL). Final details concerning LAL will be worked out in the immediate future. LAL will be a co-operative organization that will help increase trade, prosperity, development, research, culture, and promote relations and cooperation in trade, research, and military operations within its sphere of influence. The UR would like a summit with the Brazilian gov to discuss their absence in recent years and to discuss the occupied territories of the UR. The UR believes it should not have to leave its occupied cities and asks the regions to consider their invitation to join the UR (they should heavily be considering because of the funding the UR has given them). The United Republics meet with the remaining Communist militants and Peru in Lima, instead the UR proposes a split of Peru, just north of Lima, creating two states With the southern division joining the UR as the Republic of Peru, and the northern province remaining completely independent with no attachment to the UR other than the NAP.
The UR, working with Bolivian officals and polls throughout the country decide to currently divide the state formerlly known as Bolivia into three states, two of which will join in some capacity the UR. T he UR will create the Republica de Rio de la Plata (RLP) which immediately joins the UR (Paraguay may give up some of its northern Provinces to this nation as their culture and economic basis are very similar). The second state (drk. orange) is created as Republic of Bolivia -name may change - and has a similar status to the Falklands and is a dependency/protectorate of the UR, the UR plans to revisit adding RoB into the UR after a series of investigations. The third state will remain the Plurinationlist State of Bolivia. These three states immediately create and join the Bolivian Coalition, a organization to promote the culture and trade of the region. The UR continues to secretly send aid to Turkey government and its people The UR launches another rocket to add a living capsule to its space station (now consisting of a large base, solar panels, a robotic arm, and now a living capsule). The UR continues to build up cities and infrastructure. The UR sends another 10,000 troops to defend and continue the clearing of Portugal. 30k UR troops go to the city of Brasilia to liberate the area of infection and establish order in the region. The UR also once again invites the Papacy to establish a residency in any city of the UR. The UR officials meet with and discuss Bolivian Independence in a conference that will include Bolivian officials from all departments of the region.
- Falklands: The Falklands request that the rest of the UR stops sending supplies to Turkey, as they are at war with the US. We should side with the USA
- United Republics: Aid that was going to be sent to Turkey is put on hold as UR politicians and legislative branch deliberates on how to hand to the situation. The UR instead sends the aid to the Republic of Baja, clearing out the peninsula within three months.
You can't divide a country for them. Your divisions will have to be temporary occupation zones or something similar.
OOC: Why not, the British did it in creating Pakistan and India, plus if I take a poll of a group of people that want to be a part of the UR and a section that wish to be apart, why can't it be split into two or more states? G greg e (talk)
What I mean is, the people you are polling have already expressed through moderator events that they don't want to be annexed. You can't then control them to decide if they split or not.
New Chan Santa Cruz: Construction of the wall is finished and a three foot deep, two foot wide trench is constructed on the outward side of it. The bottom is lined with sharpened stakes of wood. An exploration party is sent to investigate Valladolid and surrounding towns. After meeting with the population of these places negotiations begin. We begin constructing a radio antenna which will have a range capable of reaching the Panama Canal, though it will be very faint by that stage, in hope of making contact with someone. With the lack of contact (let alone recognition) people are beginning to debate if anyone other than Mexico survived.
- United Republics Diplomacy: While on their way to the Republic of Baja, UR ships detect a message from somewhere near the Yucatan Peninsula. The UR sends a scouting and ambassador to establish contact and relations with the nation.
- Chan Sant Cruz Diplomacy: The Halac Uinik (President, PM - Call him HU) along with an armed guard are sent to contact the party. We state that negotiations may have to wait a day so we can sort out the signal that has just arrived. We shall be happy to provide accommodation and food and water for you. (Continue next turn?) Meanwhile can you formally recognise us as a sovereign state?
- RoS Diplomacy: An amateur HAM operator picks up radio transmissions from New Chan Sant Cruz. The government sends a diplomatic envoy of five AT-1 ships with one hundred soldiers, diplomats and government officials. Radio contact is made, and the RoS officially recognizes New Chana Sant Cruz as an official nation, and ask them to join the Independent States Allied Forces.
Florida: After a satellite detects what appears to be an uncontacted survivor settlement in Mexico, Radio Free Earth swings into action and boosts the signal in the Mexico (Spanish Language) area, attempting to contact them. After four years of development, phylaxocortin (which will, from here on out, be known as "Phalanx") is successfully tested on humans. Private pharmaceutical plants are enlisted to churn out enormous quantities of the so-called "wonder drug." The specifics are listed here in an excerpt from a speech by former President Askew several years ago:
'"This is not a cure. We are still a long way from a cure. But, phylaxocortin, if injected into a lifeform currently being infected during the first two hours of infection, is capable of keeping the infection at bay. The vaccine must be administered every forty-eight hours from this point onward. However, preliminary evidence shows that, while in this state, the lifeform in question has full control of its own body. Furthermore, they bodies essentially become human-Zombie hybrids, giving them many of the enhanced physical capabilities that we have observed in Zombies - without the risk of these 'hybrids' spreading the infection. 'This state does not appear to be permanent. Based on our understanding of the Zombie virus, the infection will eventually take over. However, we believe that this state can persist for around three to five years." All shipments of the drug will be completely free. 'Hybrid' special forces troops are formed into a new elite commando unit, the REAPERs.
- The South Africans would like to receive shipments and, if possible, get contracts to make Phalanx.
- Floridian Diplomacy: Both requests granted.
- United Republics Diplomacy: The UR would like to receive Phalanx in order to use it as an experimental medication and research component.
- Chan Santa Cruz Diplomacy: Hello. Greetings from New Chan Santa Cruz. Our preferred tongue is Yucatec Mayan if you have that capability, though we will converse in the tongue of our former overlords otherwise. Please state your location and intention.
- RoS Diplomacy: The Republic of Susquehanna respectfully asks Florida for shipments of Phalanx, and in return will sent different types of medicine being made in our pharmaceutical facility.
- Northern California Diplomacy: The Republic of California respectfully asks Florida for shipments of Phalanx to suppress the internal epidemic, and in return alliance to combat any enemy or Zombie infiltration.
Bohemia: The Bohemians expands their industry by 0.25.
South Africa: The remaining babies of the spike are born early this year. But the number of pregnant women begins to rise again and rises to a large number by June. The first stages of The Plan continue. Swaziland and Lesotho's economies grow as money is pumped into their nations' economies. The number of children being educated begins to rise. The large reservoir and canal network brings water into grasslands and desert lands. From here, crops are grown in previously ungrowable areas. As well as this, tree seeds also have the huge benefit of having water to help them grow quicker now. Construction on the biggest reservoir continues as the areas selected are excavation continues. The land displaced is piled onto surrounding areas to create artificial hills. Even more employment is provided by the reservoir for people. The economic boom continues. Gold being extracted helps to pay for the refurbishment and bettering of factories. Tank factories continue churning out Cheetah I in smaller numbers and five hundred more are delivered to the Army. The Cheetah II continues production and one thousand of the newly developed tanks are delivered to the Army. The wildlife plan is going well, and many of South Africa's wild animals have now been saved as a result. Thousands of classes continue, as people who cannot speak the languages learn how to do so. The fourth batch of suburbs are completed and opened to sale to the general public. Blacks and whites continue to avoid buying houses next to each other. Blacks continue to marry into different ethnic groups, continuing to blur lines. A large amount of state schools are constructed as a result of the suburbs and children continue to learn together, no racism involved. The army is trained up to be even better, with the tanks and troops training together. The offensive against Zombies continues and more are cleared out. However, even more settlements have been wiped off the map, and many areas come under military jurisdiction. More small Naval Frigates are also built in the nation, and the Navy upgrades to 1.25. Relations with the Dutch continue to improve as the two nations become closer. Protestantism takes hold in both the Netherlands and South Africa with the Zombie epidemic going on. South Africa also sends a few troops to help fight pirates and Zombies in the Netherlands. They also help the Netherlands to try to expand its influence over Belgium.
The United States defeats the Libyan army at the Battle of Tobruk. The eastern advance approaches Benghazi, where a large portion of the Libyan army resides.
Fearing the United States advance, Libya calls for the use of deadly nerve gas. Panic and civil unrest is quelled with the deaths of thousands of civilians. The Turkish alliance hopes to conceal the genocide from the rest of the world.
The Brazilian government demands the Argentinians remove themselves from their land. Disgusted that what once was a peaceful joint anti-Zombie operation has turned into a foreign occupation, the Brazilians move about 300,000 military police into the south.
Worried that the United Republics is overly jingoistic and hostile, the nations of Peru, Bolivia and Brazil sign an alliance agreement. The nations demand that the Argentinians stop invading peaceful territory.
Henderson’s Santa Fe is declared ‘Futura’, and the 1950’s revivalist movement, spearheaded by government propaganda, continues to grow. Downtown Santa Fe is transformed into a vibrant, glowing city.
The Iranian-Iraqi forces prepare to invade Turkey. The force is comprised of 285,000 Iranian troops, organized into three corps that were established before the outbreak of the war, an additional 500,000 Iranian volunteers, an Iraqi force of about 500,000 men in twenty-three divisions and nine brigades, and over one million ILM militia. The invasion commences and the majority of the force meets up with the Saudi Arabians at Lake Van within a few days, replenishing the line there. About 500,000 soldiers are ordered in Turkish Bingol, encountering light resistance. After a costly battle at the border the militia was able to enter Turkey from the east, pursuing the Turkish who withdrew to western Erzurum.
After several years of combating the Zombie infection in southern Japan, the nation is declared clear.
The Soviets advance west, laying siege to the Turkish city of Trabzon.
The Scandinavians take advantage of the undead freezing during the winter by launching a massive campaign of expansion. They clear massive amounts of territory by working with local survivors. Large chunks of northern Sweden and Finland are cleared and annexed. Less territory is annexed in Norway because of unfortunate scarcity of surviving Norwegians. The siege is finally lifted on the survivors in Stockholm, which is quickly selected as the new capital of Scandinavia.
DeanSims has been removed from this game.
Japan: Japan continues to build up the Self Defence Forces and infrastructure is improved. After so many years of fighting against the Zombies, the nation is finally cleared of them. Despite the victory, Kyushu is still declared off limits for the time being, along with parts of Ishikawa Prefecture. Some of the Maritime Self Defence Force still continues to patrol around Japan. Tatsunori Katsumata begins planning of a new manga series that will feature a new character. Synthpop continues to rise in popularity and soon a new genre is established, called Electro.
Commonwealth: Continues development and expansion, as well as supporting Turkey in their war.
Atzlan: Pedro, a man, proclaims leadership of the group of refugees and leads them with him to raid Tucson. After raiding Tucson and getting supplies, they decide to go South into Sonora and go to Hermosillo. They find horses and decide to take them, so that they can move faster. They raid everything they can along the way, finding more horses. Pedro tries to unify Atzlan under a common flag, He, being of Apache descent, decides to unify them into a new nation, called the Apache Republic. Many of the other refugees being of Apache descent decide to follow him. This event was to be forever held sacred in Apache history from now on.
Industry reaches 3.25
Colombia: The news of the Latin American League: the expansion continues in northern and Nicaragua and military, navy are built up. Santander continues expanding in the unpopulated amazons and organizing its armies fearing actions of the other triumvirs against him. The vassal state of Manaus becomes the main vassal of the nation and the exarchate of Ecuador continues growing into Northern Peru freeing the region from Zombies. The Panama Canal is under Colombian control beginning trading parties exploration of the oceans by the Colombian and civilian navy.
Northern California: The news about a controversy about a crackdown on high-ranking organized crime members by infecting them using the contagious virus sparks outrage in the country, causing dissident officers forming an organization and plotted a coup to overthrow the current government and establishing a republic in its stead. The fledgling republic, headed by Sgt. Albert Wood, suppressed all opposition and also asks for alliance with the Bay Republic..
Iran: Iran begins building up its military, economy and infrastructure, and the borders are closed to all outsiders except for Muslim nations. and South Africa. Walls are built to keep out Zombies as well. Anyone who wishes to enter is given thorough inspection to make sure they're Zombie germ free and then allowed in, regardless of religion. We also build up industry.
Iranian troops are also withdrawn from Turkey as there was a miscommunication between the high command and the field commanders, with the field commanders shot in the leg for starting war.
Wu: The Republic of Wu asks for an alliance and trade treaty with USA, USSR, Japan, European Countries and Commonwealth. 100,000 fit adults were recruited into the army as the Army of the Republic of Wu. The border between Yue is fortified and forts are built on it. Asks Japan for funding, since Wu would like to capture Yue. Asks USSR, USA, Commonwealth and European countries for funding, since Wu would like to conquer the People's Republic of China and turn China into a pro-commercial state and open the doors of China to the world. Begins advancing technology to 2.25 with lumber and wheat in China. Hangzhou becomes the capital of Wu and opens the ports of Taizhou, Wenzhou and Ningbo to foreign trade. The Government of Wu forcibly becomes a police state to improve the life quality of the people of Wu. Every adult after the age of 18 is assigned a job, including and limited to soldiers, town watch/ militia, scientists, industrial workers, farmers, doctors and builders/architect. The country is now assigned to 50% farmers, 30% industrial workers, 10% builders/ architect, 7% town watch/militia, 1% doctors, 1% scientists and 0.5% soldiers, with 0.5% unemployed. The country did a military census and discovers that one ZhengHe class aircraft carriers, ten ZhengZhiLong submarines, five Jiguan destroyers are still intact and are know Wu ships instead of their previous Chinese status.
- Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Takeo Miki accepts Wu's offer of an alliance, and shall support Wu with funding.
- United States Diplomacy: We accept a trade agreement with the nation of Wu and recognize them as a sovereign state.
New Chan Santa Cruz: Negotiations with Vallidoid, Tehosuco, Tepich Xocen come to a close with none/all/town name (MOD please RNG it) joining the state. In response to the RoS generous offer our Halac Uinik proposes that, we remain become an observer nation until we feel suficciently up to date to decide rationally. Scarcely a month ago we thought we were the only humans left. We will make our decision within five years at the very latest. More masts are built along with a further desalinization plant, making the country fully self sufficient food and water wise. (that is unless any of the towns join us).
United Republics: The UR still continues to wish to speak to a Brazilian representative. The UR negotiates with Bolivia the ability to keep a base in the department of Santa Cruz. URSA launches two additional rockets adding two more modules to its space station, and a third with a docking platform. A space shuttle is built in order easily send people back and forth to conduct experiments. this should be in full operational order by 1982.5. The UR continues to work on its infrastructure and road system, as well as more propaganda and events to celebrate the conclusion of the war against the Communist militants! The UR now seeks to strengthen the LAL. The UR recognizes Santa Cruz Chan and the Republic of Baja. The UR announces that it officially has a positive trade balance, and its economy, after many year of expansion is much more stable. The UR begins to build a residency for the Pope in La Plata, Argentina, and invites the Papacy to take up residence there. The UR increases its naval score to 1.75 citing recent experience and thereefore, increase in ship efficiency and tactics. UR troops re-inflate to 500,000.
- Chan Santa Cruz Diplomacy: Please accept our humble apologies that we kept you waiting. What do you wish to offer? If you reply we will take it as a gesture of support against Mexico if they choose to try to re-incorporate us.
The Pope already does. He primarily resides in Sardinia, but has a residence in southern Argentina.
OOC: Yes, I know, and now he is moving a bigger and more populous city since the war against Communism is over ...
United States: Naval bombardment commences on Libyan strongholds, targeting large concentrations of soldiers loyal to Khedafi. Special forces and US ground forces are transported into Tripoli and Benghazi by air, from the sea, fighting in the streets to secure ground. The advance from Egypt encounters heavy resistance but manages to surround Benghazi and eventually take the city. Inside the city evidence of the cruel inhumane actions by the Libyan government are fully revealed. In the final surrender the city’s garrison unleashes the full stockpile of the city’s nerve gas, killing thousands of civilians, and large portions of the invaders. Once the smoke had cleared the United States would begin issuing gas masks to all ground forces in the city, as well as the advance forces who were already equip. Humanitarian aid and gas masks are handed out to civilians. A rebellion is incited by the invaders, who prompt many to rebel against the Libyan army. It is believed that Khudafi has fled to an underground bunker in Sirte, but this was not yet confirmed. Within a week Tripoli had been secured, and much of the western coast was following. On 1 July Khudafi was reported dead in Sitre, officially ending the conflict in Libya. From the rebel factions an election was to take place, organized by the United States. Elections are scheduled to take place next year, and until then Libya will be ruled by a provisional council selected by the rebels and monitored by the US military. Following the operation several thousand tanks of dangerous nerve gases are seized, as well as other Turkish weapons. US forces allow the locals to take over, working as specialists and aids. The process, coined by President Ford as “Libyanization” (similar to Vietnamization in OTL) is defined as the objective to expand, equip, and train North African forces and assign to them to an ever-increasing combat role, at the same time steadily reducing the number of U.S. combat troops. The presence of US soldiers, as well as planned CIA agents helps to incite rebellion in Morocco and Algeria, as well as several other nations of North Africa. Widespread rebellion begins in the west of North Africa, where small groups of locals, supported by the Americans, begin to gain influence. The domino effect of the operation in North Africa, causing protests across the Arab world begins to be known as the Arab Spring (like the one in 2010 to present in OTL). Naval and air bombardment of the hostile North African nations continues, enforcing a no-fly zone. Humanitarian aid and military supplies also begin to trickle into the hands of rebels. After a climactic battle in the Atlantic, in which the Channel League and American fleets met the fleeing Turkish, the entirety of the Turkish North Sea fleet is defeated. Outnumbered almost two to one, and slightly outgunned, the Turkish put up a heroic effort, but the lack of supplies and crew leads to the sinking of the majority of the fleet. By the time of the battle large portions of the former fleet had already been abandoned, and the remaining ships afterword are captured. We now sent the majority of the combined fleet into the Mediterranean to catch the Turkish fleet off the coast of Turkey. The seasoned Turkish navy, which had greatly devastated the Soviets on sea, is expected to fight to the death. By removing the fleet we should be able to end the majority of the bombardment on the EHU. Fragments of the former Turkish Black Sea fleet is sent back north to join the newly created, Channel League navy.
Saudi Arabia: The war still continues against Turkey. In Southeast Turkey we manage to push Lake Van. Hundreds of Saudi Troops also managed to take Iskenderun. Along with that we also seized Adana. The war as made it tough for the homeland, Turkish people are being prejudice against the Arabs, vice-versa goes for the Saudis as well. All Turkish refugees, citizens, and tourists are all under surveillance. We started to re-build our Airfield, and our major cities. Since so many volunteers, citizens are willing to help in the war by joining the Arabian Armed forces, we increase our military score to 1.75. Saudi Arabia offers to purchase Trident Missile schematics from the United States.
USSR: We continue the siege of Trabzon, moving about 200,000 soldiers into the surrounding area and around the city. A force of about 600,000 is moved into eastern Erzurum and along Route E80 further west. We encounter heavy resistance and are stopped near Askale, where the Iranians have begun to cover the southern flank. They cover the advance of the EHU Army of the East past Lake Van as they enter eastern Bingol with little resistance from the Turkish. After a short clean-up operation we take the Romanian coast from the Turkish, who had already begun withdrawing into Thrace, securing the coastal port of Constanta. With their supplies cut off we surround Bran Castle and demand that the Turkish surrender. Finally, special forces infiltrate through the east tower, opening the gates, revealing that the castle’s garrison was slaughtered from the inside. It is eventually pieced together that the Turkish fell back to the castle and attempted to execute the Soviets, starting a battle inside. We officially declare that the Warsaw Pact nations are now aiding in the war, forcing Romania to aid us in the assault on Bulgaria. Soviet forces are eventually able to move down the coast, meeting the Turkish line at Thrace. I was asked to post this for the USSR player, since he is unable to post right now.
South Africa: Another population spike takes place in the nation, with even more babies being born. The first stages of The Plan continue. Swaziland and Lesotho's economies grow as money is pumped into their nations' economies. The number of children being educated continues to rise in those nations. The large reservoir and canal network brings more water into previously ungrowable areas. As a result, huge numbers of crops can now be grown. More crops are grown than what is necessary to feed the population. Trees grow much better with reservoir water helping their growth. Construction on the biggest reservoir continues as the areas selected are excavation continues. The land displaced is piled onto surrounding areas to create artificial hills. Even more employment is provided by the reservoir for people. The economic boom continues. Gold being extracted helps to pay for the refurbishment and bettering of factories. Tank factories continue churning out Cheetah I in smaller numbers and five hundred more are delivered to the Army. The Cheetah 2 continues production and one thousand of the newly developed tanks are delivered to the Army. The wildlife plan is going well, and many of South Africa's wild animals have now been saved as a result. Thousands of classes continue, as people who cannot speak the languages learn how to do so. The fifth batch of Suburbs are completed and opened to sale to the general public. Blacks and whites continue to avoid buying houses next to each other. Blacks continue to marry into different ethnic groups, continuing to blur lines. A large amount of state schools are constructed as a result of the suburbs and children continue to learn together, no racism involved. The army is trained up to be even better, with the tanks and troops training together. The offensive against Zombies continues and more are cleared out. However, even more settlements have been wiped off the map, and many areas come under military jurisdiction. More small Naval Frigates are also built in the nation, and the Navy upgrades to 1.5. Relations with the Dutch continue to improve as the two nations become closer. Protestantism grows and the nation also helps the Netherlands to try to expand its influence over Belgium.
The Libyan National Transitional Council declares war on Turkey. Work begins to start rebuilding the country with the help of the United States.
With Rio de Janeiro firmly in the hands of the Brazilians, Brazil offers the United Republic a trade agreement, hoping to rebuild diplomatic relations.
The nation of Scandinavia establishes itself in Stockholm, encompassing much of northern Sweden, reaching to Stockholm, most of Finland, excluding the far southeast, and some of the Norwegian far north. The nation temporarily establishes its border at Norway’s, using the Scandinavian Mountains as a natural boundary. The nation, since it succeeds Sweden, is currently in a personal union and alliance with the Confederation of the Baltics.
A small union of several survivor communities and trade posts leads to the creation of the nation of Salton. The nation’s borders are established to encompass the Colorado Desert, Chocolate Mountain Naval Reservation, Joshua Tree National Park, Borrego Springs, and meets the Mexican border.
Deseret expands its trade capabilities to meet the city-states of Flagstaff, Arizona and Grand Junction, Colorado.
Phylaxocortin begins to be distributed to several nations allied to Florida, and to the ISAF.
Fighting in Peru ends, leading to the Communists establishing themselves as the dominate force in the country. The nation is reconstructed, with Peru as a mainly Communist political system.
A peace treaty is offered to United Republics and the other nations of South America from Peru. The treaty, known as the Treaty of Sucre, calls for the end to hostilities, recognition of Peru’s new government, peaceful joint reconstruction of the area, withdraw of UR soldiers from Brazil and the occupied zone, and the establishment of a UR military base in southern Bolivia.
The city-state of Bergen, Norway manages to expand across the Sognefjord and into Hardangervidda National Park, becoming one of the dominant forces in Norway.
To compensate for the loss of Chan Santa Cruz the Mexicans begin to reclaim their territory from the undead. The warm wet weather of southern Mexico has caused most Zombies to decay to bones quickly, allowing the Mexicans to progress rapidly in the reclamation of their territory. The new lands are mostly settled by refugees from Central America.
Japan: Japan continues to build up the Self Defence Forces and infrastructure is improved. Some of the Maritime Self Defence Force still continues to patrol around Japan. Synthpop continues to rise in popularity while Electro begins to rise in popularity. Meanwhile, the Japanese Socialist Party is dissolved and is soon succeeded by the Social Democratic Party of Japan. Some more Zen Taoist Temples begin to be built in Northern Japan.
Alaska: With the acquisition of Phylaxocortin (Alaska being an ISAF member,) the Alaskan government approves the creation of the Alaskan Anti-Zombie Expeditionary Forces. The AAZEFs, commonly called Azefs, are a highly-trained elite group. Training is conducted in some of the more low-risk Zombie areas near the Alaskan borders, and they are trained in usage of high-accuracy weapons, and melee tactics. Each man is given at least three syringes filled with Phylaxocortin. During training, tactical retreats, and administration of the vaccine have proven successful, and no deaths have occurred within training. Due to the potentially high-risk, the pay is much better than other military positions, and the force quickly grows to 5,000 men. Alaska asks Florida if their men can receive proper training in anti-Zombie tactics. They ask the USA and Canada if their forces can be used in the infested regions of Western Canada. they also ask if they can join the UCO.
- RoS Diplomacy: The Republic of Susquehanna offers Alaska a peace treaty.
Commonwealth: An order is placed for several raw versions of Phylaxocortin, as well as a massive shipment of the vaccine to Sydney, escorted from Fiji by five military vessels from Alaska, to be protected from raiders which have become more common. The project in the New Zealand Alps climaxes with several large explosions, confirmed by personnel on site to be blasting by the government. Security remains tight in the Alps. Continues all support missions and development/expansion.
- Alaska Diplomacy: We'll escort any vessels under the flag of a PCO nation, anytime.
- Commonwealth Diplomacy: Oh dear. I misworded that. Sorry, I meant to say, you ship us the Phylaxcortin and we escort you from Fiji for protection.
Saudi Arabia: We keep pushing all Turkish citizens, military personnel, and refugees out of the Southeast of Turkey. We eliminated all bio-fuel farms in the Southeast part of Turkey. We started looking at researching a new destroyer. Screening stations will be opened everywhere since Turkish terrorists are attacking the nation, all airports, bridges, and underground transits are stopped. We stop these to slow the terrorists down from reaching their destination. We wish to buy Trident missile schematics from the United States.
- RoS Diplomacy: We offer to ship Saudi Arabia M-19's, and send in 50 security personnel to guard Saudi sites.
- Saudi Arabia Diplomacy: We accept.
Colombia: The wall of Santander begins to be built in northern Peru and the military is built up. Disorganized regions under Zombie control are taken or invaded by the army in order to secure its ruling under Colombia. Colombia remains neutral in the events between Brazil and Argentina.
United Islamic Caliphate (Formerly the Yemeni Rebels. Sorry about missing last nights post, we had our state track meet, and our 4x800 team came in eighth with an 8:50 and left in fifth with an 8:27.): With the successfully rebellion, now propagated as a Holy Revolution, branding the previous government as heretics who sought to remove Islamc through force of law. As'ad Nejem steps down as military leader and gives wholesome power to the counsel and Caliph El-Amin I in a great display of personal character, and to help establish his name across the new nation. Reorganization efforts begin across the country to get it back to pre-civil war conditions, and to create a more effective military and economic force than what has existed previously in the Yemeni region. Using the money from selling the island of Soctra, the UIC's first act is to subsidize many factories to aid in rebuilding, and to pay hundreds of thousands of new, temporary government workers whose jobs are to rebuild in their local towns, villages and cities, as well as roads, canals and bridges. The current government denies all responsibility for terrorist actions used by the Yemeni Rebels during the early to middle parts of the civil war.
- RoS Diplomacy: We ask for an alliance with the UIC.
- UIC Diplomacy: The counsel unanimously agrees to the alliance with support from Caliph El-Amin I. The country is in celebration to be allied with a nation that aided greatly in the civil war.
Falklands: We resume work on the abandonned fortifications we began several years ago, as we have noticed the increase in aggression between Argentina and Brazil.
Republic of Susquehanna: Now that the war is over, the RoS military pulls out, with the exception of the Navy, which remains to set up a base on Socotra. Steel is shipped to the UIC, along with natural gas. All troops are brought home. The RoS government demands an explanation from the Turkish diplomats on why the Turkish government is using harsh tactics, and threaten to expel them PERSONA NON GRATA. Returning troops surround Schukill Airfield. Government shutters embassy in Turkey.
Work continues on the nuclear weapons program, and a viable bomb should be complete by 1984. Testing will start in 1985. 12 F-4A's, and 8 B-52's are delivered, along with one Knox Frigate. Work continues in Williamsport. Government secretly approves a bunker to be built, similar to Cheyenne Mountain Complex.
To help defend Sealand the RoS gives them six AT-1 ships and sends a Knox Frigate to guard their waterways.
- RoS Diplomacy: We ask Turkey to return Sealands patrol ships.
Wu: Asks for a renewed alliance with England, Germany, USSR and the commonwealth. War games are practiced to eager the army. Begins advancing technology to 2.5 with lumber and wheat in China. The ports begins exporting Chinese goods, as well as mass manufactured industrial commodities. Areas begins to be rebuilt as militia and town watch attacks any Zombies in sight. The ten Zhilong submarines are deployed near Yue ports, sinking commercial ships and fishing boats. Asks Yue to peacefully merge with Wu (Mod Decision). Asks to join the United Cure Organization. Farms are built along side the Yangtze river, and collective farming begins. Begins in building aircrafts and the A.F.W (Air Force of Wu) is founded with 200 pilots.
- RoS Diplomacy: Radio signals alert the RoS to the existance of Wu. We respectfully acknowledge Wu as a nation, and ask for an alliance.
United Republics: The UR accepts the Treaty of Sucre on the amendment that the base is in Santa Cruz. However, the UR still pushes for Peru to be split. Secretly the UR trains more military members increasing numbers to 550,000 and begins to infiltrate Bolivian and Peruvian governments with agents. The UR offers to protect Bolivia as well. The UR launches its Space Shuttle successfully, and experiments concering projectiles in space as well as elements begin. UR condemns all foreign involvement in the Middle Eastern War, however, once again offers to host a summit to create a ceasefire. The UR begins to strengthen Latin American League relations and invites the Republic of Florida, Baja and Chan Santa Cruz to apply. UR begins to work on relations with Brazil. Aflonsin increases development in Antarctica starting the first civilian permanent colony. The UR continues to work on its infrastructure and industrialization in order to further protect and further its economy. Anti-air and Artillery are built along the Brazilian border. The UR sends Chan Santa Cruz aid and satellite scans of Mexico. The UR asks Colombia if it can establish a joint base near the Panama Canal.
Bohemia: Bohemia expands their industry by 0.25.
South Africa: The population spike ends by January again, with the number of pregnant women rising by June. The Plan moves into Stage Two. Swaziland and Lesotho's economies grow as money is pumped into their nations' economies. The number of children being educated continues to rise in those nations. The large reservoir and canal network brings more water into previously ungrowable areas. A larger number, and more importantly larger variety of crops is grown. Trees grow much better with reservoir water helping their growth. Construction on the biggest reservoir continues as the areas selected are excavation continues. The land displaced is piled onto surrounding areas to create artificial hills. Even more employment is provided by the reservoir for people. The ecnomic boom continues. Gold being extracted helps to pay for the refurbishment and bettering of factories. Tank factories continue churning out Cheetah I in smaller numbers and five hundred more are delivered to the Army. The Cheetah 2 continues production and one thousand of the tanks are delivered to the Army. The wildlife plan is going well, and many of South Africa's wild animals have now been saved as a result. Thousands of classes continue, as people who cannot speak the languages learn how to do so. The fifth batch of suburbs are completed and opened to sale to the general public. Blacks and whites continue to avoid buying houses next to each other. Blacks continue to marry into different ethnic groups, continuing to blur lines. A large amount of state schools are constructed as a result of the suburbs and children continue to learn together, no racism involoved. The army is trained up to be even better, with the tanks and troops training together. The offensive against Zombies continues and more are cleared out. However, even more settlements have been wiped off the map, and many areas come under military jurisdiction. More small Naval Frigates are also built in the nation, and the Navy upgrades to 1.75. Relations with the Dutch continue to improve as the two nations become closer. Protestantism grows and the nation also helps the Netherlands to try to expand its influence over Belgium.
Futura continues to grow, with much of the city of Santa Fe converted to art-deco style buildings. When traders from Deseret arrive they are pleased by the conservative values instilled by Henderson in Futura.
Reconstruction of Libya begins, and plans are made to begin rebuilding its cities.
French armed forces take the city of Dijon from the Zombies. Contact is made to the Channel League through Brittany.
The city-state of Nantes is established, becoming an important trade city between the Channel League and the French government.
With their nation firmly under control, the Austrians turn their attention toward upgrading their military. Austria's army score upgrades to 1.25.
Japan: Japan continues to build up the Self Defence Forces and infrastructure is improved. Some of the Maritime Self Defence Force still continues to patrol around Japan. Synthpop and Electro continues to rise in popularity. Some more Zen Taoist Temples continue to be built in Northern Japan. Elections take place in Japan and Yasuhiro Nakasone from the Liberal Democratic Party becomes new Prime Minister.
Confederate Islands: The Governatore is visiting with the Pope when an airplane comes flying into view. The See, recently perfected to be very similar to St. Peter's Basilica, takes little notice - the Cagliari International Airport is only six miles away. As the large jet comes nearer, the Air Trafic Controllers begin to pay attention. By the time the communications of the plane are reached, it is too late to open anti-aircraft fire. The plane lands right in the quarters of the Pope. The Pope and Governatore both die instantly. As per the Constitution, the Regulatore takes his place. Elections for a new Pope result in an Argentinian Pope. He decides to move the location of the Holy See to Buenos Aires, Argentina, UR. The new Governatore decides to ask the UR to become a protectorate. We ask Sicily, Malta, Crete, Cyprus, Gibraltar and the Balaeric Islands to join the Confederate Islands.
Commonwealth: Continues expansion and support worldwide, specifically Turkey and Japan.
Republic of Susquehanna: Work continues on the bunker, now called Coal Mountain Defensive Installation. Anti-air defensive weapons are built. Plans for an aircraft carrier are unveiled. Due to a large rainfall, crop production is up. 12 more 1A4 Leopard tanks are produced. Expansion in Williamsport continues, and plans to move the capitol city there are drafted. A new base is constructed outside Williamsport. Five more AT-1 ships are built, and three MH-82 helicopters are built.
Talks of declaring war on Turkey are shot down, due to the cost and the fact we are still allies.
- What is my stability? Is it 43 still, or back to 50 because my troops came home?
Alaska: The Phalanx (I think that's the common name) is shipped to the commonwealth, under their escort. We accept the Susquehanna peace treaty.
United Islamic Caliphate: Reconstruction efforts continue with heavy civilian involvement and an extensive use of government propaganda. Out of the view of the public eye, however, thousands of former pro-Yemen officials, such as generals, cabinet members and the like are executed, but most ordinary soldiers are simply rehired to serve what Is told to them as 'A greater good for all people and Allah'. The first Amir Ul-Umara or Commander of Commanders is As'ad Nejem who is elected nearly unanimously by the counsel save two votes. Current census of the population, military equipment and finances is expected to take about a half-year to compile for its first time.
United Republics: The United Republics finally establishes a government and order in South Portugal, this nation is known as The Liberated Republic of the Kingdom of Portugal, also known as the Republic of Portugal or Portugal. Portugal becomes a vassal-state of the UR, with Lisbon as its capitol city. A nuclear safe shelter is built for the Pope, under his residence and See in La Plata, Buenos Aires. After even more months of industrial and infrastructure work the UR raises its industrial score to 2.0 (Scores: 1.75 Mil, 1.5 vnavy, 2.0 industry,
58 stability). UR officials begin talks on the relationship with the Confederate Islands. The UR, citing already having a research and naval agreement with the islands since the mid 70s, agrees protect/vassalize the nation (whichever the CI prefer). Armed forces numbers increase again, this time to 600,000 and just in time more tanks and airplanes are built. The UR still remaining highly neutral to the outside world, keeps its neutrality in the Middle Eastern Conflict, but does recognize the United Islamic Caliphate. The UR sends an additional 2,500 men to the C.I. in order to investigate and begin rebuilding the damaged area. The base in Santa Cruz has anti-air and defense technologies added, including bunkers and such. Meanwhile in Antarctica, similar material used to keep the Space Station insulated is employed in living developments in the Northern Parts, mainly a town called New Stanley. In addition the solar power projects are now nearly complete, leaving all accept mid to major cities solar powered as their main source. The UR continues military build-up near Peru and in Santa Cruz. Rex Masterman is re-elected for his second full term as Prime Minister and continues his training of covert and intelligence officers on the Falklands, giving the UR the best Intelligence Departments in the world. UR Intel begins to infiltrate more Peruvian officials, both Communist and non-Communist party groups, and even more in Santa Cruz department, Bolivia. The UR heavily funds Pro-UR parties in RdJ, Sao Paulo and Santa Cruz. URSA's space shuttle arrives back in Cordoba safe and sound ... completing the shuttle's first trip back to earth after being docked for three months at URSA's space station. On its next trip a rocket will be launched to update the solar panels and add a secondary living area to bring max capacity to ten semi-permanent residents. Portugal using the 20,000 UR soldiers expands both northward (OTL Coimbra) and westward (OTL border Spain), creating an infection free and now government in place area. A group of roughly 5000 soldiers dock in Malaga, Spain and begin clearing the area of infection and attempt to contact whatever remnant of the Spanish government/royalty that may exist. For now, they establish a provisonal government, using their experiences in Portugal, under the name the Liberated Republic of the Kingdom of Granada.
Your stability is 45.
Northern California: Under the despotic rule of Sgt. Albert Wood, socialist reforms were implemented. In mid- June, on the first anniversary of the coup that brought him to power, he declared Northern California a one-party state. The National Assembly was dissolved, and he began ruling by decree. Suspected dissidents were purged from the government, and an expedition force, under the command of Lt. James Grant, was formed. On August 15, the expedition force was deployed to invade the southern half of what used to be the US state of California, driving out Zombies along the way.
In September they reached Los Angeles, cleared and disinfected the area, and by October the last of Zombie presence were driven out, and on November 6, Wood declared the lands south of San Francisco Bay part of the republic.
You can't invade that fast. Also, there are already several nations in the area you were invading.
South Africa: The population spikes again, with the number of pregnant dropping once more. Through all the spikes, the population has grown very quickly. The Plan continues into Stage Two. Swaziland and Lesotho's economies grow while the number of children being educated continues to rise in those nations. The large reservior and canal network brings more water into previously ungrowable areas. A larger number, and more importantly larger variety of crops is grown. A direct result of this is that Whites on the west coast begin moving inland to set up communities and to farm the now easily farmable land due to all the canals. Trees grow much better with reservoir water helping their growth. Construction on the biggest reservior continues as the area for the reservior is completely excavated. The inside of the planned reservoir now begin to be coated with cement and concrete to help keep the reservoir shape and so it does not collapse in on itself. The land displaced is piled onto surrounding areas to create artifical hills. On these hills, seeds for trees and grass is planted and watered. This is intended to save it from the effects of erosion and help rainfall in the area. A huge amount of jobs is provided by the reservoir and an economic boom continues. Gold being extracted helps to pay for the refurbishment and bettering of factories. Tank factories continue churning out Cheetah I in smaller numbers and five hundred more are delivered to the Army. The Cheetah 2 continues production and one thousand of the tanks are delivered to the Army. As a result, the Army is upgraded to 2.75. A large amount of biodiversity is now found inland with the aid of growing jungles through trees. Lions roam free, along with rhinos and hippos. A special branch in the Army for the protection of these animals is created. Thousands of classes continue, as people who cannot speak the languages learn how to do so. More Suburbs are completed and opened to sale to the general public. Blacks and whites continue to avoid buying houses next to each other, but their children begin to make their parents realise their folly. Blacks continue to marry into different ethnic groups, continuing to blur lines. A large amount of state schools are constructed as a result of the suburbs and children continue to learn together, no racism involoved. The army is trained up to be even better, with the tanks and troops training together. The offensive against Zombies continues and the whole nation is now inder the control of the Council. Even though areas are under military juristication, people are advised to travel north and fill in the gaps. Relations with the Dutch continue to improve. As relations grow closer, talks of an equal union for the growth and protection of both nations' economies and militaries begin. The Netherlands also continue to expand their influence. They send Protestant missionaries, and converting on the basis that Catholism did not help them against the Zombies, and how South Africa and the Netherlands are doing so much better. It begins to work. The Belgians also become more influenced by the Dutch. Mods, thoughts please. Plus, I would like to know my current stability.
Your stability is 50.
New Chan Santa Cruz: As the delegation has not yet received a reply from the towns they are sent again. (MODS PLEASE). We accept with pleasure the RoS invitation to join ISAF.
Mod Decision: The towns accept.
Texas: captures the last of known Libertad leaders. The organization is outlawed as a terrorist group, its millions of members publicly criticized by government-sponsored newspapers. Henry Cisneros, Antonio Orendain and José Ángel Gutiérrez are hanged alongside each other on live television. Rebuilding efforts begin in San Antonio. Hate crime increases dramatically against Hispanics among the general population. Bidal Aguero, spared execution, calls it, "a major step backwards in civil rights" and warns that it may continue "for many years".
Bohemia expands their industry by 0.25.
Californian locals report a new disease found in Los Angeles. At first many assume it is linked to the Zombie infection, but it is soon found to be much different. The disease is later called AIDS.
Simon & Garfunkel perform The Concert in Central Park.
The nation of Belize declares its independence.
Vallidoid, Tehosuco and Tepich Xocen officially accept the request from New Chan Santa Cruz and join the nation.
Malta, Cyprus, Gibraltar, and the Balearic Islands decline the offer to join the Confederation Islands. Crete accepts.
Japan: Japan continues to build up the Self Defence Forces and infrastructure is improved. Some of the Maritime Self Defence Force still continues to patrol around Japan. Synthpop and Electro continues to rise in popularity. Some more Zen Taoist Temples continue to be built in Northern Japan. Tatsunori Katsumata begins writing his new manga, called Amsterdam, and it will feature a new main character, and Seiga Rokkaku will also make an appearance as well.
Commonwealth: Some drunk guy with a turntable and some audio stuff in his garage in Perth creates dubstep. More blasting in the New Zealand Southern Alps, increased transport and military activity in the area. Continues development. Army reaches 2.75. The Commonwealth withdraws its forces from Turkey and Japan and declares neutrality in the world, as to focus on developing a cure for the Zombie virus, with the raw samples of the virus and the raw versions of Phlaxicortin-X from Alaska. Phlaxicortin-X is mass produced by the government, soon to be bought out by a private investor.
United Islamic Caliphate: The military and partial civil information for the new nation is as follows: 165 M60 Patton tanks, 620 T-54/T-55 tanks, 75 Panhard AML's, 260 BMP-1 Infantry Fighting Vehicles, 465 M-113 APC's, 340 BTR-60 APC's, 210 Alvis Saladin APC's, 450 L16 81mm Mortar's, 55 Panhard AML Mortar's, 15 2S1 Self-Propelled Artillery, 25 M-46 Howitzer's, 20 S-23 Howitzer's, 135 BM-21's, 6 Frog-7 SSM's, 13 SCUD SSM's, 145 ZU-23-2 Anti-Aircradt Guns, 35 S-60 Anti-Aircraft Guns, 55 9K31 Strela-1 SAM's, Numerous Small Arms such as AK-47's, M79 Grenade Launchers, M-19's, AKM's, Type-56's, and M60 Machine Guns The military personnel numbers 280,000 Active and 340,000 Reserves. Hundreds of more former pro-Yemen higher ups are rounded up and executed or sent to one of two new and secret prison camps set up by the new government. Reconstruction of the infrastructure continues as roads, bridges and docks are restored in many parts of the country, allowing for imports and exports to begin and the economy to redevelop. The capital is mostly restored, with a new statue that depicts the Caliph El-Amin I in honor of him being the first Caliph.
United Republics: UR covert agents begin to destablize and incite uprisings in South Brazil, RdJ and Sao Paulo regions, as well as continued funding of Pro-UR parties in these areas. RdJ and Sao Paulo's economies have fallen off after the leaving of UR industry and trade as Brazil attempts to rebuild. Agents also continue to infiltrate Peruvian government, at a cost though, with spending and research increase the UR government is now spending just under the amount it is taking in from trade tariffs and taxes. The UR makes a sizeable offer to buy the Rio Grande Province (price negotable). [Mod Reply] URSA launches a shuttle of ten people to its space station. Opportunities in New Stanley are made known to the public, and increases the small settlement's population to over 1,000. The Pope makes an announcement that Catholic nations need to care - disinfect - for other Catholic nations. As a result, another scout/military team is sent to the infected area of Murcia docking in Cartagena. After clearing out the coastal region contact is made with Spanish government ruling over the Northern and Eastern communities. As a sign of good faith UR soldiers return the area to Spanish law and rule, and turn back into Granada. UR continues to increase infrastructure and research in order to increase stability. Mining starts in southern regions and Andes finding gold, silver and other important minerals. The Pope's residence is nearly finished (1983) and Saint Mary's Basillica begins construction in La Plata. Another large city in the Buenos Aires province is being constructed called Atlantea, it sits midway between La Plata, and Mar del Plata. UR furthers military buildup in Northern Chile and Argentina. Since Murcia was quickly left, joint UR-Confederate Islands troops head to the mouth of the Tiber, and attempt to create a landing to assist in clearing out Rome. UR recognizes Spain as a country and its control over all of OTL Spain except Andalucia.
- Portugal: Expands northward to OTL Spanish border, thus re-unifing Portugal once again under one banner. Infrastructure begins to be built around Lisbon.
- Granada: Troops clear out and begin to unify the coastal region, headed to OTL Sevilla and OTL Cordoba. The Republic claims the area of OTL Andalucia
Cascadia: The chief Washington Chairman, holding a tight and authoritative grip on the nation, dies. The nation calls for the resignation of the other chairmen. They refuse until the Idahoan Chairman is assassinated, forcing the Oregon chairman to resign. The Third Triumvirate is finally over.
Confederate Islands: A special election is held in the Confederate Islands to elect a new Governatore, both because of the old Governatore's death and the addition of Crete. A soccer team composed of Paolo Rossi, Alain Giresse and Marco Tardelli is composed to play in this year's World Cup. Hopes are really high. (In OTL they scored 11 goals among the three of them!) The military decides to attack Rome to liberate it from the Zombies. The attack begins, and we seek the support of the UR. We join the UR as a protectorate.</p>
United Republics Diplomacy: UR will send supplies and military and naval aid already in the region (formally protecting the Pope i e, 5,000 members) and the special San Salvador Marie and her quarantine ship. UR understands any territorial gains during this venture will be governed by the Confederate Islands. Officials predict that they can clear out and establish a government over 25 sq miles of the mouth of the Tiber.
Wu: Asks for a renewed alliance with England, Germany, USSR and the Commonwealth. Begins industry technology to 2.75 with lumber and wheat in China. Cars are mass-manufactured in China as Wu asks western countries for trade agreements. Asks to join the United Cure Organization. The army arms itself and gives Yue an ultimatum to surrender or be invaded and conquered. Asks Japan for supplies and soldiers in its conquest against Yue. Militia attacks Zombies, and burns down known Zombie living sites. Accepts Republic of Sealand's alliance and contact the United Republic and Confederate Islands.
- Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone sends some supplies and military support to help Wu.
Republic of Susquehanna: Blasting begins on Coal Mountain Defense Complex, and the aircraft carrier base is laid down on Socotra. Shipyards in Montour produce a new model of the AT-1 troop transport called the MC-82 (Military Combat-1982) which replaces the destroyers and has five starboard and portside torpedo tubes, one forward Heavyhitter cruise missile launcher, one rear 100mm gun. Port and starboard sides have three 50 cal. anti-aircraft machine guns each, and one forward 30 cal. anti-aircraft gun. (All compared to the two starboard and portside torpedo tubes, one forward 50 mm gun, and six 50 cal. anti-aircraft guns on the AT-1)
Three more F-4A are delivered. Industry upgrades to 1.75. Nuclear weapons development continues, and the first rocket is launched for a 35 second flight before it crashes into the Atlantic Ocean.
Congress passes Resolution: 145 which says: The Republic of Susquehanna is a free state and cannot support a depostism regime such as the Turkish Government is acting, massacring its own citizens who protest against the cruelity shown, and seizing another nation's property. Any Turkish diplomats are expelled PERSONA NON GRATA, and Schukill Air base is under the control of the Republic of Susquehanna. All equipment on site is now owned by the military of the RoS. A state of war is declared between the Turkish Government and the RoS government
Troops storm and capture Schukill airfield with no casualties, and sieze 18 F-15's, 36 F-4A's, 30 Leopard 4A2 tanks, 5 AH-1 Apachies, and 16 UH-1 Hughes, and 2,000 troops. Prisoners are given an option: 1- Integrate into the RoS miltiary and face no charges and be given housing, 2. Be put on trial for war crimes, 3. Be deported to the United States for trial. (Mod Decision)
All RoS troops overseas are informed of the state of war. The Columbia Guard sneaks into a Turkish shipyard,
and steals back Sealand ships. Fighters bomb Anakara, and Flight 2 hits the Turkish Front Lines with missiles and machine gun fire, allowing the Saudi Troops to advance another three miles. 5,000 RoS troops are deployed to invade Turkey. Flight 1, 3 and 4 are all deployed and air drop 1,000 troops into Tekirdag, capturing the whole province in one month, supported by armored unit 4, 5 and 7. They proceed to the Kirklareli Province and capture that in another five weeks.
At sea, three Knox frigates and one MC-82 destroyer capture the TCG Savaştepe, sink the TCG Anittepe, and the TGC-Burk. Plans are made to invade the Turkish mainland.
Sealand already got their ships back.
Chan Santa Cruz: Celebrations are held as the new settlements are incorporated. We propose a new International Maritime Signal Flag, for use if, and only if, the ship may have the Zombie virus onboard. We fear that just using the standard 'Lima' Flag would not be enough. We propose switching the Black squares to where the Yellow is and replacing the yellow with Green. Another wall incorporationg these towns is begun. All citizens are provided with slingshots and a regular army is begun, drafting five hundred men.
France- A New Nation: France declares itself a country and begins the process of demorcratic voting. France requests an official alliance with British Isles and Ireland. France sends a request to join the UN.
In Paris, a new research lab is built, and using US and Japanese technology, it is designing a super- rocket. Paris asks for a technological trade link to eastern countries. (e g,. T.Vs, Computers, etc).
France hasn't retaken Paris yet.
United States: We continue funding the Libyan army and the country’s efforts to rebuild the nation. Along the coast of North Africa bombings continue on hostile areas. More supplies also begin to fuel the Arab Spring in Morocco, Algeria and other nations. The US navy engages the battered Turkish Mediterranean Fleet off the coast of Cyprus. The Turks, who managed to defend against both the Soviets and EHU joint navies, is overwhelmed and heavily outnumbered. The Turks are cut off after running a bombing operation of the EHU, meaning that they are carrying far lower amounts of supplies. After a long battle in which the Turks manage to sink several ships, the Turks surrender. The battle is quite devastating to both sides, leaving several ships sunk. Finally the EHU bombings have been eliminated, excluding small-range attacks by land. With naval defenses now severely weakened around Cyprus, the United States launches an invasion of the island. It is determined that US soldiers will land at Paphos, following an intense naval and air-based bombardment. On the night before the attack several thousand soldiers are transported by air and paradropped around the landing site. Although several planes are lost in the fighting, enough airborne infantry manage to reach their objectives, harassing the Turkish ground forces and removing important anti-air and bunker defenses. The next day the landing commences, dropping about 100,000 soldiers at Paphos. Another 50,000 soldiers are dropped near Salt Lake, tearing the Turkish defenders in two. Within the next twenty-four hours a convoy would cross down Route A6, surrounding the Turks at Salt Lake. With the southern flank secured, the north flank approached Mount Olympus. It is believed the mountain is home to one of the largest Turkish defense networks on the island, possibly housing a bunker with Turkish officials. The battle rages on as the US ground forces are pinned along the slope. The navy is sent to bombard the island from the north, dropping another 70,000 soldiers near Kormakiti. The third force from the north applies pressure to the Turkish garrison in Nicosia, which panics to evacuate Turkish officials. Anti-air emplacements are taken over, shooting down Turkish aircraft which attempt to leave the city. Within a month much of the island, excluding Nicosia, Mount Olympus, and a few large Turkish bunkers is taken, pinning the Turkish within the island. The Turkish defenders are left isolated, on a by-unit basis, some units choosing to surrender, while some choosing to fight to the death. We host the 1982 FIFA World Cup
- United Republics Diplomacy: UR would like to assist in the taking of troops, allowing 20,000 troops to join the assault on Cyprus. Also feel free to use Granada as a launching point for any attacks.
- United States Diplomacy: We thank the United Republics for their assistance. (OOC: Are you no longer supporting Turkey?)
- OOC: I haven't been since like 1979.
- RoS Diplomacy: United States, you can use Socotra to launch airstrikes if need be, we ask if we can buy an amphibious assault ship or small aircraft carrier. We also ask if we can buy the plans for the F-16 A/B and a squad (4) F-16 A/B.
South Africa: The number of pregnant women increases once more. The Plan continues into Stage Two. Swaziland and Lesotho's economies grow while the number of children being educated continues to rise in those nations. Talks begin between the nations on becoming part of South Africa, and go very well. The large reservior and canal network brings more water into previously ungrowable areas. A larger number, and more importantly larger variety of crops is grown. The network begins to be extended into the desert areas of Botswana and the Naimbian desert. The Orange Free State sees a large increase in its population with the many Boer families moving into the state with the offer of cheap land and lots of it. Trees grow much better with reservoir water helping their growth. Construction on the biggest reservior continues as its coated with cement and concrete to help keep the reservoir shape and so it does not collapse in on itself. The land displaced is piled onto surrounding areas to create artifical hills. On these hills, strees are seen to grow while grass covers the hills. A huge amount of jobs is provided by the reservoir and an economic boom continues. Gold being extracted helps to pay for the refurbishment and bettering of factories. Tank factories continue churning out Cheetah I in smaller numbers and five hundred more are delivered to the Army. The Cheetah 2 continues production and one thousand of the tanks are delivered to the Army. New war games are tried on the tanks to keep them in good knack. As a result, the Army is upgraded to 3. A large amount of biodiversity is now found inland with the aid of growing jungles through trees. Many poachers are now held in jail. Some were also shot when they tried to get to close to the animals. Thousands of classes continue, as people who cannot speak the languages learn how to do so. More suburbs are completed and opened to sale to the general public. The children begin to convince parents that racism is bad. Blacks continue to marry into different ethnic groups, continuing to blur lines. A large amount of state schools are constructed more children are educated. The army is trained up to be even better, with the tanks and troops training together. With all of South Africa cleared out, towns can finally begin to be repopulated in the north. Relations with the Dutch continue to improve. As relations grow closer, talks of an equal union for the growth and protection of both nations' economies and militaries continues. The Netherlands also continue to expand their influence. They send Protestant missionaries, and converting on the basis that Catholism did not help them against the Zombies, and how South Africa and the Netherlands are doing so much better. It begins to work. The Belgians also become more influenced by the Dutch.
Baja expands to secure the island of Isla Angela De La Guarda. They also secure the small island of Isla Montague, making a small military outpost there.
Strategically positioned between Edwards Air Force Base, several army bases, and Los Angeles, the small nation of Saltan dedicates its resources to securing its territory to eventually expand into these wealthy regions. A small military is created.
The 1982 World Cup is hosted in the United States. It concludes with the Confederation Islands winning the trophy.
A new mutation of Zombies is spotted in eastern China. The Zombies are seen with longer legs, jumping several feet into the air at fast speeds. The new Zombies are known as Jiangshi by the locals after the Chinese folklore of the same name.
I'm really getting sick of these new mutations. There should only be one kind of Zombie. This isn't freaking Dead Island for crying out loud.
Dude, understand that when new species arrive or end up in a new environment they adapt to the environment. This is a real thing in the 'human world' its called , "Adapting to the environment." Maybe the owner of the page wants a little more Pizzazz. How the hell is this all like Dead Island? It's a freaking Map Game! Homey, please don't complain, these mutations add to the whole feel of the game. RazorFangZ14 (talk) 19:44, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

Las Vegas: The city-state of Las Vegas arises out of the dust of the Mojave Desert clearing the once great city. Thousands of soldiers die in the clearing of the city but the city is nonetheless cleared. People take up residence in the City. Vegas increases its military capacity to replace losses. Vegas sends a diplomat to Texas for Recognition and trade agreements.
Two things, I think Las Vegas was cleared by the Mafia, and the Mafia run it
Yes, the city has already been cleared, read some previous moderator events.
This is not canon. It needs to be reworked to match the established canon.
Commonwealth (I'd like to add as just a note- I protest the re-additon of the three month system, i'll still play) Continues everything we were doing for the last 6 months. Dubstep becomes popular among commonwealth citizens.
Alaska: A survivor colony is founded with 2000 Azefs on the southern tip of Baja California. the UR is asked to help govern the colony.
- United Republics Diplomacy: UR will send supplies, an expert expeditionary force armed with maps and arms, in the following months (1 turn away).
- New Chan Santa Cruz Diplomacy: Hello. We welcome your presence here. Do you wish to trade? We have Bricks and lumber to allow you to expand. We do need Weapons and ammo.
Texas: decides to expand into New Mexico, putting the renewed morale after the end of the Civil War to good use. Zombies are killed by the bucketful. The Mexican Recompense Act is signed, forcing former members of Libertad to pay up to a 10% increase in taxes to help rebuild the nation. There are public outcries against it, but the military is more than willing to put any protests down.
Wu: Asks for a renewed alliance with England, Germany, USSR and the Commonwealth. Momentarily stops industrial advancement, as it is not needed currently. Japanese companies begins entering Wu for cheap labour. Asks to join the United Cure Organization again. With no reply from Yue, Wu declares war on Yue (Mod algorithm please). A 50,000 strong troop assaults the city of Ningde, as Wu's 10,000 navy, with 20,000 army, lands in Xiamen. Bombers are sent to Foochow and Quanchow. The Qiguan destroyers are driven to major Yue ports, bombing the ports and landing 5,000 soldiers in each port. With the now, jumping Zombies, the Wu government has come up with a wonderful solution: a man wears a completely sealed suit to prevent Zombie bites, rushes into Zombie Hordes, waving a spiked club to kill as many Zombies as possible. Asks United Republics and the Confederate islands for an alliance.
United Republics: Launch of URSAs shuttle goes without a fail, the ten will conduct experiments and return in about six months. Protests in Santa Cruz department Bolivia show that some people are indeed in favor of the benefits of being a nation of the UR. Protesters cite the economic decline and social reform backtracking with the UR leaving, while the economy near the UR base is much better of than the rest of the department. Pro-UR parties are continued to be funded in RdJ and Sao Paulo. UR and CI troops and milita continue to clear out Rome, expanding the clean area to just over 2,000 sq miles. Contact is made with some locals within, and inquires lead to the fact that there is absolutely no basis of government in the area. A feudal system is currently being employed in the OTL Lazio Region. UR and CI officals meet with many locals and plan to establish the Republic of Rome over the next three months. At the end of this action, UR troops will return home. UR intelligence agents continue to infiltrate Peru. The first major Pro-UR movement is made in Lima as many middle-class claim the government is taking their wealth and redistributing it to the poorer workers, claiming that their is no multiple party system. UR satellites also reveal two questionable camp-style buildings in inland Peru outside of Lima. The UR intellegence investigates and find that they may indeed be concentration camps, as they found mutilated limbs outside, the smell of gas furnaces . In a meeting of head officials of the UR, Alfonsin and Masterson decide that it is now a human rights issue and violates the Treaty of Sucre, and alerts the LAL and ISAF asking for assistance to end this quickly. Alfonsin also makes a public announcement that this will be his last cycle (1982-1986) as UR President of Internal Affairs and makes a speech that he must protect the people of the UR, the people the UR interacts with, and continue to develop and strengthen the UR economy, industry and infrastructure. The UR military upgrades to 2.0. and active numbers inflate to 700,000 troops. The UR forces invade Peru (Algo coming once nations reply to requests and thus result pending).
- RoS Diplomacy: We are willing to deploy five Army Companies, and three National Guard Regiments to the assist the United Republics.
- Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone sends 10,000 soldiers to help aid the United Republics in their war against Peru.
- Portugal Diplomacy: Portugal will send milita support and supplies ( OOC: So +2 for support and -1 for Vassalization?)
- 'If I see a satellite picture of a campground I'll invade that country' isn't a very good casus belli. By that logic, the UR should have been invaded, since they had actual concentration camps (in OTL as well).
- OOC: Thanks for posting this...I redid some of this post but had an editing conflict and it was like one in the morning and I was like - screw it.
- Falklands: We prepare our troops for a war with Peru, and the veterans of the Chilean war train the rest of the spec ops teams of the UR how to fight anti-guerrilla warfare in a dense jungle environment. SECRET: FSF troops are sent to Chile, then smuggled into Peru to attack Pucallpa, a city in the jungle.
- Alaska: Alaska sends naval support to the UR, and sends 5000 marines for attacks against coastal regions.
Portugal : Increases infrastructure around Lisbon, Coimbra and Porto, reaches out to Spanish government. Portugal begins to establish a military, all UR troops are sent home, but UR officers remain to train the Portuguese military.
Granada: Completes clearing out of its claimed area. Local governments are established and locals begin building many cities and ports. Inquiries are made to Britain about buying Gibraltar. The Balearic Islands are advised to join the Confederate Islands, as they better understand the island economy and structure.
France: Speeds up development of the rocket so that it will be finished before the year. They also build an Army Base on the boundary of Royal France and ask to reclaim it from Britain or there will be war (Mod algorithm, please).
Republic of Susquehanna: Work continues on the nuclear weapons program and Coal Mountain Defense Complex. Expansion in Williamsport is complete. The aircraft carrier is 25% finished, and Appalachian Heavy Industries deliver the first batch of armored amphibious tank, the NT-10, delivering 6 of them to the Navy. A Marine Corp is started in the Navy as a sub-unit. The NT-10 has a 50 cal. machine gun, and a 30mm anti-armor weapon. In Turkey, troops move into the Edirne Province, with Navy forces isolating the troops there from aid. The Turkish Air Force attempts to airlift supplies to the trapped, and when that fails, they use the Type 209 submarines which are able to evade the RoS navy and the US navy in the area. One submarine is captured while unloading supplies, and the RoS uses it to boost the naval capabilities. At home, the Turkish POW's all elect to join the RoS military, and are integrated with the provision that they are under survellance for one year. Four more MC-82 destroyers are built, and thirteen UH-1 Hughes helicopters are built, along with four new F-12 Lowland intercepters. One new B-52 is built as a transport plane for the National Guard.
Florida: We begin shipping phylaxocortin to every country that we can, regardless of whether we are allied with them or not. The REAPERs begin accepting civilian applicants. After a series of delays, it is announced that "Star Wars" will be released within the next few years.
Bohemia: The Bohemians continue to build their railroads and telegraph lines throughout Germany. They are met with surprisingly light resistance from the local Zombies, presumably because most of them had decayed to nothing.
United Islamic Caliphate: The first oil field of the UIC is re-opened outside of the town of Sayun, providing numerous drilling and construction jobs for the area, but most are low-paying. The council passes a legislation called the Progress Tax For The Advancement of Islam or The Jizya, which is a tax on all non-Muslims. The tax can take up to 7% of a person's income if they are higher earners. Caliph El-Amin announces an expedition to be undertaken by several military officers and twelve dozen other people, including soldiers, their families and volunteers. They intend to cross the Bab-El-Mandeb Strait between Yemen and Africa, and clear out the infected and establish settlements to further eradicate the infected and spread the glory of Islam back into Africa. (What are my current scores, military, navy, industry, and stability wise?)
- RoS Diplomacy: We frown upon the tax, and ask that everyone be given equal rights in the nation. If everyone is given freedom of religion, speech, etc, then we will invite you into the ISAF.
- UIC Diplomacy: The council agrees to relieve the tax, mainly due to increased revenue from the new oil fields. The council, however, disagrees with all people being given rights, publicly stating that Islam cannot be denied nor its laws, but they send a private message through Caliph El-Amin that explains that this unequal rights is holding the country together through this turbulent time, citing examples of small groups that could've taken over in place of the UIC, most of them much more extreme.
Chan Santa Cruz: Construction of the Second wall is completed and several wells are dug. Another five hundred men are drafted to the army full time and all other men are given guard duty of an hour a week. An exploration party is sent to scout 100 km from the second wall.
United States: The invasion of Cyprus concludes, with the last of the Turkish bunkers being raided. After several days of uphill, trench fighting and bunker busting, Mount Olympus has fallen to the invaders. Inside the fortress some intelligence on the situation in Nicosia was recovered, which helped in the final push against the city. Although the majority of the island’s garrison had surrendered by the time Nicosia had been surrounded, many of the city’s defenders chose, or were forced into fighting to the death, manning the elaborate defense platforms. Intense hand-to-hand fighting ensues in the streets, killing hundreds of civilians caught in the crossfire. US armor finally infiltrates the city, wiping out most of the above land defenders. The Turks fall back to the underground levels, cutting the power and hoping to survive long enough for aid to arrive. Through the darkness special forces units pierce the complex bunker system, clearing room by room. In the lowest levels, the personal bunker of the Turkish president is discovered. Once inside, the president’s family is found dead from what is perceived to be suicide. It is assumed that the president killed himself, then had his bodyguards cremate his body. The US navy stations in Cyprus’ harbors, awaiting orders while repairing. The Vulcan 9 space expedition is launched, landing two astronauts on the Earth’s moon. It is believed for the time being that the mission, the seventh mission to successfully reach the moon, will be the last for some time. Work continues on the three planned Nimitz-class aircraft carriers, known as the Dwight D. Eisenhower, USS Carl Vinson, and the USS Richard M. Nixon. All ships begin to be equipped with Phalanx CIWS and other upgraded weaponry.
- RoS Diplomacy: We again ask for 12 F-16's, and to purchase a small aircraft carrier.
1983After declaring war on Peru once more the United Republic’s stability drops to 39 (No casus belli, annex territory). I didn’t add treaty modifier since that was added after the war’s outbreak.
Star Wars is released in the United States, Florida, and several other nations. After years of production, rewrites, and the death of director George Seaton, the film is finally completed. The film gets mixed reviews and barely breaks even, ending Universal Studio’s interests in science fiction for quite some time.
Over 2,000 people, mostly Bangladeshi Muslims, are massacred in Assam, India in what would come to be known as the Nellie massacre.

To organize its members easier, the HRE places several suvivor communities into kingdoms and duchies, creating the kingdom of Württemberg, among others.
Japan: Japan continues to build up the Self Defence Forces and infrastructure is improved. Some of the Maritime Self Defence Force still continues to patrol around Japan. Synthpop and Electro continues to rise in popularity. Some more Zen Taoist Temples continue to be built in Northern Japan. Tatsunori Katsumata continues writing the manga Amsterdam. Star Wars is banned in Japan due to much Anti-American sentiment in the nation. Meanwhile, Sega continues its plans to create a video game console.
Commonwealth: An army is sent to Malaysia where 12 elite soldiers, armed with the most advanced armour and weaponry to capture four Zombie specimens. The operation is a success. They arrive in Darwin, where the city is locked down, 42,000 soldiers are mobilized in Canberra - the destination for the four Zombies. Any city along the route from Darwin to Canberra is completely shut down for security of the people.
United Kingdom: PM Thatcher declares that France's war threat will not be left to stand. The British military is put on its highest level of alert and the Invasion of France begins. British troop carriers travel through the English Channel and make land across the western coast of France, meeting resistance that can't stand the British military might (Algorithm pending). We invite Japan, UR, Granada, Florida and Portugal to form a coalition with us so that we can secure the future of peaceful Europe.
- Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone agrees to form the coalition, and also hopes for a peaceful Europe.
- United Republics: Supports this Coalition to secure a peaceful Europe.
- RoS Diplomacy: We cannot send infantry or armed forces, as we are entrenched in two major conflicts, but will provide humanitarian and medical aid.
Alaska: The South Territory of Baja California is officially declared. Azefs stop their advance after clearing La Paz, and work on fixing docks, industry and infrastructure in the region. a few locals begin coming back into the colony again, though the number of Azefs far outnumber the locals. The Alaskans also accept the trade deal with New Chan Santa Cruz.
- UR Ships bring many building supplies to the colony.
Republic of Susquehanna: The armed forces manage to storm the citadel in the Edirne Province, taking medium casualties, and capturing the province. Troops are shifted to Istanbul, and the navy asks for US assistance in blockading the city. The air force pounds the air defenses, with the goal of neutralizing them. In the RoS, support for the invasion of Turkey grows, and work on the aircraft carrier is 42% completed. Coal Mountain Defense Complex is finished being blasted, and concrete work begins. A small nuclear reactor is built to process uranium, and some small amounts of purified uranium and plutonium are recovered. Plans are to test a working bomb off Socotra in 1984. One new MC-82 is built, and schematics for the Type 209 submarine are finished, with plans to built 15, and one delivered. Another two F-12's are built along with ten UH-1 Hughes for the National Guard. One B-52 is finished as a fueler for the air force. Transport planes are renamed CP-52, and Refuel planes are named FP-52. M-19's are shipped to the UR, and infantry arrives to aid the invasion.
The RoS Battle plan in Turkey is to capture Istanbul, then wait for US and other troops to move into Turkey. Steel production is up, and plans on reclaiming PA are drafted.
United Islamic Caliphate: The expedition team sent across the strait has survived with only three deaths, one of them self-inflicted. They set up their settlement just outside the Djiboutian city of Obock, which is mostly abandoned except for fresher infected and a few survivors, the survivors being offered a chance to join the settled expedition team. Due to its success, the Caliph El-Amin I declares that the whole area of what was formally Djibouti to be under UIC control, but the council has not declared an official statement yet. The number of executions decrease rapidly, forcing on camp to be converted into a prison camp for high crime offenders to do manual labor. About 1/4th of the country is in pre-war condition through civilian labor.
- RoS Diplomacy: We ask the UIC to allow freedom of religion, and remove or reduce the tax in exchange for joining the ISAF. We also ask them to help us reclaim PA if we chose to reclaim our territory. The government informs the UIC that the RoS plans a nuclear weapons test off Socotra in the coming years, that is NOT meant to be a threat to the UIC.
- UIC Diplomacy: The council agrees to relieve the tax, mainly due to increased revenue from the new oil fields. The council, however, disagrees with all people being given rights, publicly stating that Islam cannot be denied nor its laws, but they send a private message through Caliph El-Amin that explains that this national religion is holding the country together through this turbulent time, citing examples of small groups that could've taken over in place of the UIC, most of them much more extreme.
Texas releases a heavily edited, bootlegged version of Star Wars. Several scenes are altered so it becomes clear that the heroic republic is symbolic of the Texas government, exhibiting 'wholesome Texan values'. The original is banned. However, Hispanic movie theaters secretly show the movie, using the opportunity to criticize the government while they can. Surprisingly, the original film becomes a cult classic among those who get the chance to see it. Texan troops liberate the city of Hobbs, in former New Mexico and the surrounding area.
Colombia: The military is built up and the navy expands. Aid is sent to Portugal, Spain and France in order to re-establish the world order in Europe and later spread it throughout the world. While this, the vassal of Manaus and territories expand mostly in inhabited northern Peru.
United Republics: A ceasefire is established with Peru, and further attack is pending negotiations. The UR continues to strengthen ties with Spain and invites all the Iberian nations to become observers in the LAL [MOD RESPONSE - SPAIN] Furthermore, infrastructure is built up and the UR begins to critically anaylize its education system, wishing to remain on par and even exceed other nations' education systems. Further research is put in both research bases and in URSA. A high-speed (for the time) rail system begins being built from Montevideo - Buenos Aires - La Plata - Atlantea - Mare de Plata - Riviera which will allow for growth along the Atlantic Coast. [rest of post pending results of negotations with Peru]. The UR sends aid to the United Kingdom and encourages growth in Portugal and Granada, both of whose infrastructure expands. UR continues industrialization in southern regions and begins building further infrastructure as these cities begin to grow.
Northern California: Grant's expeditionary team of 10,000 liberates the city of Fresno from the Zombies and establishes a client government in Stockton to admninister the cleared area while awaiting annexation. Meanwhile, President Wood dispatches a note to the Bay Republic to hold a referendum to join the Republic of California, but he was killed in an air crash after delivering a speech in Eureka, and his brother, Gen. James Wood assumes the presidency. He improved relations with the major world powers and asks for mutual alliance with the United Republic. He submits his country's application to the ISAF, but before doing so, he improves the education system, restored civil liberties, and resigned as president to reinstate Gaitan's government-in-exile. Arnold Gaitan died of cardiac arrest after returning to California to resume his term, so vice-president Louis Hummerton assumes the presidency on 27 April 1983. Due to restoration of democracy,
industrial level increases to 1.7.
A mysterious human-Zombie hybrid strain that was first detected in male adolescents, mostly senior high school students and army recruits, shocks the nation to its core. They normally wear hooded sweatshirts, and behave much like cats on attacking their victims. As a result, President Hummerton asks the Republic of Florida for shipments of Phalanx to suppress the internal epidemic. But an idea came to a former Free Officers' Union member, Gen. Bill Edwards, to use the hybrids (which he dubbed 'hunters' because of their
behavior) to form a commando force, the Black Hoods.
You're not in contact with the US or Florida. They don't know you exist. Also, you can only upgrade your industry by 0.25.
Confederate Islands: Still ecstatic from their World Cup victory, the military continues its invasion of Italy to free Rome from Zombies. We also have military forces up in France, trying to take the coastline for the Confed. Islands. We feel that we have proved our right to be a nation with the addition of Crete and our World Cup victory, so once again we invite Sicily, Malta and the Balaeric Islands. We feel that being unified under a common banner of "people of the Mediterranean" will allow us to prosper more than ever before. We are united in heritage and culture, so let's unite and be the Zombie-free states of the Mediterranean! We increase military levels. Can someone tell me all of our levels, please?
- United Republics: Balaeric Islands are under control of Granada and have been advised to join the Confederate Islands as they better know how to govern the island's economy and culture.
Actually the Balearic Islands aren't controlled by Granada. The moderator event said "Granada and the Balearic Islands are established as a Spanish remnant state," meaning they are two nations who are remnant states.
The rocket is finished, and 2,000 colonisers go up and establish a military base on the Moon. France sends an airship fleet behind British lines, to cut off supplies while the Moon base is constructed. The soldiers increase in number, and France declares martial law.
Austria: Following successful consolidation of Austrian core territory, a vast industrial renewal program begins. Work begins on an upgraded Bundesstraßen (Austrian autobahn) system from Vienna to the Austrian Alps, which will be used to transport supplies and building materials across the nation. The Nationalist forces who followed the Habsburgs in their war to reclaim their homeland are heavily rewarded, and the army is expanded, encouraged by propaganda and national ideals. Fighting to protect the Österreich becomes a sense of national pride, and is well respected. Other national parties such as the Progressive and Liberal parties gain some footing, but still remain a minority to overly popular and emperor-backed nationalist regime. The first council meeting of the Grand Council and the members of the Holy Roman Empire concludes, voting unanimously to sign a non-aggression pact with all members. All German survivor states are eventually added to the council through principalities and duchies, drawn by the Grand Council according to historic borders. Relations with Liechtenstein continue to decline, with much of their government influenced by the heavily popular anti-Habsburg and pro-democratic Austrian resistance. Strategists begin looking into possible plans to invade the nation and pacify its borders for good. We ask Bohemia to join the Holy Roman Empire.
Saudi Arabia: Thousands of Turkish buildings are destroyed. We increase our industry score to 3.25. Blood of our once friendly brethren is shed. The country of Turkey seems to be falling apart. We cease fire for the time begin.
East Africa: Refugees based on the island of Zanzibar begin preparations for the mainland invasion of former Tanzania. 20,000 able-bodied men and women are handpicked by the government for the invasion, and armed with weapons collected by scavangers from the refugee parties landing on Zanzibar Island. Viewing the over-population of the island as reaching critical levels, the invasions must succede if the survivors are to survive much longer. With rations dwindling and the do or die mission looming over it, the government gives the order to invade Dar es Saleem.
United States: Cyprus is officially occupied, with the last of the Turkish forces surrendering. The docks around the island are repaired to house the US fleet, which patrols the coast of Turkey. We sent 100,000 soldiers to break the siege at Adana, meeting the EHU forces who surround the city. Much of the city is reduced to rubble after numerous bombings, leaving the Turkish defenders in ruin. After much of Route E90’s destruction at the hands of bombers, another force of about 90,000 is dropped south of Adana. Since the majority of the Turkish defenses are focused at Adana, the force easily moves inland, take few casualties. On land they take the town of Tarsus, surrounding Adana, and guarding the roads to Konya and Mersin, temporarily blocking supplies. Work continues on the three Nimitz-class aircraft carriers which are scheduled to be completed within the next eighteen months. The ships, and the rest of the US fleet are slowly upgraded to utilize modern weapons such as the Phalanx CIWS, and should be fully upgraded within a few years. Soldiers from Helena, Montana make contact with the nation of Cascadia after securing the route from Helena to Spokane. The road will eventually be used for trade between the two nations. We ask that Susquehana abandon their plans to make nuclear weapons, stating that they are unnecessary. We are willing to pass certain embargoes on them, and cut all nuclear research funding and aid if they continue. We ask Cascadia for a trade agreement.
South Africa: The number of pregnant women drops as more women give birth. The Plan continues into Stage Two. With Swaziland and Lesotho a part of South Africa, the area of the former countries are made into provinces, with no land taken off them. The large reservior and canal network brings more water into previously ungrowable areas. A larger number, and more importantly larger variety of crops is grown. Extension of the water network continues. Trees grow much better with reservoir water helping their growth. Construction on the biggest reservior continues as its coated with cement and concrete to help keep the reservoir shape and so it does not collapse in on itself. The artificial hills become larger as more land is added onto it, and grass helps to solidify the shape of the hills. A huge amount of jobs is provided by the reservoir and an economic boom continues. Gold being extracted helps to pay for the refurbishment and bettering of factories. Tank factories continue churning out Cheetah I in smaller numbers and five hundred more are delivered to the Army. The Cheetah 2 continues production and one thousands of the tanks are delivered to the Army. The council reports that animal numbers have surprisingly increased due to the successful handling of the situation by the Army and the council. Thousands of classes continue, as people who cannot speak the languages learn how to do so. More Suburbs are completed and opened to sale to the general public. The children begin to convince parents that racism is bad. Blacks continue to marry into different ethnic groups, continuing to blur lines. A large amount of state schools are constructed more children are educated. The army is trained up to be even better, with the tanks and troops training together. More of the population moves north, and there are talks of creating a smaller version of the reservoir network to make crop growing easier. Relations with the Dutch continue to improve. As relations grow closer, talks of an equal union for the growth and protection of both nations' economies and militaries continues. The Netherlands also continue to expand their influence. They send Protestant missionaries to Belgium, who become more influenced by the Dutch.
Following the border disputes and threatened invasion in South America, the nations of the LAL, the United Republics, Bolivia, Peru, and Brazil sit down for peace negotiations.
After the death of the Turkish president, the leading general in Ankara assumes the role as president.
The Confederation Islands, in co-operation with the government of Central Italy and Sicily, begin occupying Lazio, pushing the infection out of Rome.
Spain declines the offer to join the LAL
France continues pushing the Zombies out of its country. After months of fighting they re-enter Paris and loosely secure the city.
The Republic of Susquehanna realizes that because of logistics reasons and the threatened embargo from the United States, a nuclear weapon would not actually be complete for many more years.
The nation of Djibouti joins the nation of Yemen. The local government in the area asks that Yemen join the EHU, like how Djibouti had.
Ethiopia begins to be cleared by the locals. Rallied by a new military leader, the people along the northern and eastern border manage to clear much of the north and far east of the nation.
Sega releases the SG-1000 game console, to moderate success.
Despite the superior English weaponry, the nation of Great Britain is repelled in the initial invasion of France.
The UN asks that France and England make peace, since the war is not helping to clear the Zombies, but worsening the condition in the area.
A powerful earthquake and tsunami in northern Honshū, Japan kills 104 and injures 163.
Attention: There is a new proposal system in effect. See the talk page for more information.
Japan: Japan continues to build up the Self Defence Forces and infrastructure is improved. Some of the Maritime Self Defence Force still continues to patrol around Japan. Synthpop and Electro continues to rise in popularity. Some more Zen Taoist Temples continue to be built in Northern Japan. Tatsunori Katsumata continues writing the manga Amsterdam. Clean up and aid goes out for those affected by the Earthquake and Tsunami. The Tōhōkai begins to lose some influence, while the Social Democratic Party of Japan becomes more popular. Japan also sends some supplies to help England in their war against France.
Alaska: Construction of a sustainable community in South Baja continues.
York Federation: President Watts appeals to the US. Watts asks the US to fully annex the York Federation due to collapsing economy and rising crime, and hopes that the US intervention and annexing will correct these problems. Watts also requests that Manhattan be absorbed into York when it is made a state, and New York City be made capital of the new state.
- United States Diplomacy: We accept the offer to annex all of New York.
Central Italy: The prime minister decides to build up the military in hopes to push the Zombies out of Rome.
Cascadia: The new Cascadian Constitution is signed, creating terms of four years, with chairmen limited to one term. The method of representative chairmen from Idaho, Washington and Oregon is highly amended to prevent one chairman from gaining power over the others. Meanwhile, the military expands. By now, all rubble and abandoned cars from the major highways around Cascadia has been removed and repurposed. The area around Mt. Saint Helens, which erupted in 1980, is dubbed a memorial. Mt Saint Helens Memorial Plaza is built in Seattle.
Iran: Abdiesus Awehvi becomes King of Iran. The military is built up, and Abdiesus funds several irrigation projects around the country. The Iranian government also sends several envoys to Iraq, Turkey and Israel with requests for trade agreements.
Commonwealth: At the Cureplex, a team of elite researchers inject the vaccine into a Zombie to see the affects of it. (RNG Successful Kill or Failure please) Development and expansion continues. Dubstep is now immensely popular among Commonwealthites. A formal constitution for the Commonwealth, for the long term is adopted, with representatives from Guiniea, New Zealand, Fiji and Australia signing it and agreeing to its terms
United Islamic Caliphate: The Jizyda tax on all Non-Muslims is abolished by the Caliph El-Amin I, and the move is approved by the Council. The Council welcomes Djibouti to the UIC, and opens Up five more seats on the council based on Djiboutis prewar regions. As'ad Nejem requests more funds for military development but is rejected by the council who wish to focus on reconstruction at the moment than "war toys". As more oil fields are opened up as the infrastructure and roads are repaired, the towns around these fields grow due to the large amount of jobs, but the houses are mostly very small, some even shanty homes. The industry score goes to 0.50 (?) now that most all the infrastructure is repaired in half the country.
- UIC Diplomacy: The UIC, with majority sentiment from the council and the support of Caliph El-Amin I, requests to join the EHU.
- UIC Diplomacy: Caliph El-Amin I sends a trade proposal to the United Republics, offering oil in exchange for lumber. (Prices for Yemenese oil have not completely stabilized yet, so be warned.)
- RoS Diplomacy: We thank the UIC for their change of stance on the non-Muslim Tax. The RoS is willing to produce F-4A for oil and gasoline.
- RoS Diplomacy: We are willing to allow you into the ISAF.
- RoS Diplomacy: We ask the UIC for aid in the war against Turkey, and please send reinforcements to Istanbul.
- UIC Diplomacy: The Council accepts the trade of Oil and Gasoline for F-4A's, and mobilizes the 1st United Armored Division to aid the Republic of Susquehanna against the Turks in Istanbul. The force consists of 45,000 soldiers, 30,000 of which are actual. The rest is 65 M60 Patton tanks, 420 T-54/T-55 tanks, 55 Panhard AML's, 120 BMP-1 Infantry Fighting Vehicles, 140 BTR-60 APC's, 350 L16 81mm Mortar's, 20 Panhard AML Mortar's, 10 2S1 Self-Propelled Artillery, 15 M-46 Howitzers, 10 S-23 Howitzers, 100 BM-21's, and 50 F-4A Freedom Fighters.

However, some details are still being worked out with Peruvian officals. On another note, campaigns for President of Internal Affairs begin to heat up, as Raul Alfonsin has decided he will not be running again (1976-1984). Current leaders are Chilean Patrico Aylwin running on the platform of eliminating poverty, improving housing, socialized medicine, and improving the internal economy, and Argentine Lucas Larrenga who wishes to increase exports, improve the economy, and create a higher cultural bond with the UR and surrounding nations. On another note, Javier Perez de Cuellar (Peru), is added onto the special advisory board to aid the Prime Minister and President. UR expeditionary forces arrive in OTL Georgetown, Guyana and begin to establish a settlement. Aid is sent to the UK in response to the outrageous French actions. The UR also demands an explanation for the Bengali massacres. Infrastructure and Industrialization are further improved, raising UR Industrial Score to 2.25. Furthermore, Special Forces and Intelligence forces continue to get better. Also the UR spends time improving relations with Spain and Bolivia. The UR begins to withdraw troops from Peru leaving on good faith. The space shuttle returns from URSA having successfully conducted tests on Solar panels, thus improving all future UR made solar panels. Despite these successes funding to URSA decreases, but URSA will continue the Space Station program, and begins drafting plans for a manned mission to the moon, and consider sending a satelitte out into the solar system. Secret: URSA conducted research on sending text based message and "picture" messages from a point on earth, through the satellite, and back to another location on earth. Success was mild at best. UR continues mining and the concept of a mass lumber farm is proposed.
The UR proposes a new UN style-organization, named the United League of Nations, that will be based on keeping peace and allowing for issues to be solved through diplomatic means, but when necessary, just peacekeeping war.

Natural gas production is up, and the government begins to stockpile it, due to unreliable oil prices. A vote to move the capitol to Williamsport is shot down again because of the cost to build new government buildings.

Plans to launch a moon mission by 1990 are made, and funds are provided from the cancelled nuclear weapons program.
In Turkey, the army still is seiging Istanbul, with no sign of surrender. Fighters constantly hit covoys and ships attempting to get freight and supplies to the city, completely cutting it off from the world. A radio tower is hit by an artillery barrage, temporaraly ceasing the communication of Turkish military command from Ankara. 200 Turkish troops attempt to break the siege, pushing the RoS troops back a half mile. The army is ordered to remain there until re-inforcements arrive.
On February 15th, another 3000 National Guardsmen, Navy Task Force 3, and Flight 8, 9 and 10 all arrive to provide additional support.
