It is expected that the specimen will become sentient in May. A version of the modified Phlaxicortin-X is being developed to be either mist or gas. Continues development and expansion.
Texas: Even Muñiz cannot allow anyone to secede from Texas. He makes a declaration that Paso del Norte has to be stopped. He begs the New Mexican alliance to not invade in return, stating that they are trying to free the people from the gangs that control it.
Meanwhile, David Duke has moved to West Texas and has become a commander in Settlers' Defense. He stated that he just had to get out of the 'political mess' back east. He recently started a petition for a recall election against Muñiz. Some of his cronies in Congress have also authored amendments hoping to limit Muñiz's power. One bill, creating the ability to hold a vote of no confidence, is picking up speed in the KNP-dominated Legislature.
- New Mexican Alliance (Mod): The New Mexican microstates respond by stating that if Texas does not infringe upon their sovereignty further, then there would be no need for any invasion. They offer to send whatever aid they can to help those living in wartorn parts of Texas.

Elsewhere, the military is built up to recover from the losses sustained from the war and to exact control over the new territories.
Kingdom of Italy: The navy's score is increased by 0.25 as every member of the navy is given a shotgun and a standard naval knife. We also begin work on a naval border to other nation's ships. We tell the Tunisian government that they need to step down. The parliament begins debating an invasion of Tunisia to help the rebels. I will only invade if another country offers support. We offer the Republic of China an alliance and tell the Texan government they need to stop the bullying. The king and three different corporations say that they will pay for a Nova Roma World Cup 1986. The World Cup would promote Nova Roma - a thriving city of tourism - whose industry is being built up,
- RoS Diplomacy: We will support this invasion provided that they will release them at the end of the conflict.
United Islamic Caliphate: The soldiers sent to Istanbul on the request of the Republic of Susquehanna arrive back with huge, government run fanfare. The national propaganda plays their part up by saying that Turkey's most heavily and final fortresses would never have fallen without the aid of the soldiers, when in reality they arrived at the tail end of the Siege of Istanbul. The small group of council members continue to stop an attempt at signing the Treaty of Dubai, for they are looking at a loose interpretation of the UN, saying its International Justice would lead to many people of high rank in all levels of the UIC government to be arrested by an international court seeing as the rebellion could be seen as an unlawful demonstration, and the Global Shelter and Food conflicts because women in the UIC cannot own their own houses (They can have an apartment room, etc.), and will lead to conflicts with the UN (These councilmen are very pro-isolationist, and oppose most things having to do with interaction and co-operation between nations. There were four members at first in this group, but it has grown to 15, making them more of a threat to international relations.)
Northern California: An interim government-in-exile in formed by the Californian Freedom Party leader Mark Robinson in Seattle. He calls for a revolution in Northern California to end the regime of Louis Pittankel. Many took up to the streets in protest against him and called for his resignation. By this time Pittankel can no longer contain his anger, so he stepped he declared a state of siege in the country, not knowing that a coup d'etat is on the way, staged by CFP-backed officers. The coup failed, and Pittankel signed the National Security Enabling act into law, bringing the Californian Republic to an end and marked the rise of the Greater Californian State, with Pittankel as their leader. He planned a large-scale invasion of the Bay Republic, occupying its northern half in no less then seven months, with an army of 1.3 million soldiers.
- You are aware that Seattle is in Cascadia, right?
- I think he means he fled the country to Cascadia.
- Also, I changed the name of the law to National Security Enabling act, to prevent confusion with the NDAA law in OTL. IstocnoSarajevo (talk) 05:33, May 29, 2013 (UTC)
Falklands: The original populace of the Falkland Islands are all in New Falkland now, but the islands are now full of Argentinian ex-pats. We start to turn a level of the city into farmland, with artificial lighting and fertile soil with natural compost (cow pats), and we are now well on the way to being able (in an emergency) to seal up the city and survive indefinitely with our own produce and energy. We also set up a system of vents to allow air in for such an occasion. We also set up a desalinization plant at the seafront to provide us with fresh water. We will have finished by 1986.25.

More reconstruction occurs, and another fence is built to separate the RoS from the US. Fortifications are built on Socotra, along with pillboxes, and other defensive structures. A secondary capitol building is built on the island, and a more troops are stationed there. It is not a threat to the UIC, but preparations for possible Soviet incursions. A search team enters the USSR to find the downed plane, and is immediately arrested and disappears. The RoS demands their return.
Five new M1-Mahoning battle tanks are constructed (OTL M1-Abram), raising the RoS military 0.25.
United States: Older tanks begin to be phased out and replaced by the more advanced M1 Abrams. With experience from the Middle East War, strategists begin training soldiers in new tactics, utilizing modern weaponry. This military buildup increases our army score to 3.25. With the US presidential elections on the horizon, several candidates intensify their campaigns. In the Democratic Party Walter Mondale and Jimmy Carter are the lead candidates, while Harold Stassen and Ben Fernandez are the lead candidates of the Republican Party.

The USSR returns the crew from the Republic of Susquehanna, apologizing for the incident.
Despite the opportunity for Taiwan to take back mainland China, much of the island is divided. The majority of people believe it would be more beneficial to remain isolationist and heighten the island defenses. Some, however, wish to pursue an invasion, even though this would be extremely expensive and risky.
Protests occur in Mongolia calling for a more democratic government. Following in the USSR’s footsteps, the government begins to incorporate social reforms and allow opposition parties.

The price for Apple and how could I join since Rex and I invented it and I can't even be a member of it.
Texas sends troops into Paso del Norte to stabilize the area and prevent further infection. The border is redone, with what was formerly part of Texas returned. As consolation, Texan soldiers help Paso to expand into Chihuahua, and further exploration is encouraged. David Duke leads Settlers' Defense in a series of hit-and-run raids against the New Mexican Alliance. Soldiers in particular are targeted. Muñiz tries to handle the situation, but the whole situation is getting out of hand. George H W Bush is among many criticizing Muñiz's handling of it, but Bush feels that Duke is going too far. Bush is becoming popular as a compromise between two extremes, Duke and Muñiz.
Falklands: We are now completely able to survive in the city. We begin to establish another city, but we work by digging a tunnel under the ice to where we want the city, melting all the ice off, and starting construction. The government moves to New Falkland (if they already have delete this bit). We fortify the only surface point in the entire city. We expect that it will be fortified to be able to withstand a small nuclear explosion by 1990.
Why did you delete my post?
It was an accident. I saw the Italy post, but not the Falklands one. My bad.
It's fine. I copy pasted from the 'see changes' bit to source, so it doesn't matter.

Northern California: However, the CFP-backed officers were able to flee to establish a rival government which was to be the continuation of the Republic of California in Jefferson, something like Taiwan in OTL. Later, CUAZEF dissidents took the Channel Islands to reserve CFP sovereignty should Pittankel or Bay Republic militia invade Jefferson. Asks mod for the creation a free republic of Jefferson. However, the Fascist regime in Eureka establishes the Bear Guard, a highly trained elite force that is the regime's version of the navy SEALs and uses them to terrorize the Bay Republic until they surrender.
Chan Santa Cruz: The exploration party from the Panama Canal is back (if this next bit violates canon tell me) They say that the area is totally empty, with Zombies having rotted, but that the area needs cleansing. We immediately dispatch a team to do so. Mods, can I have the diplomatic responses to my soundings out of North Mexico/South US please?
CM: The Confederate Mediterranean, the official and legitimate government of the Mediterranean Ocean, Sardinia, Corsica and Crete, with claims on Elba, Malta, the Balaerics, and Sicily, officially asks to become a state of las Republicas Unidas.

United Islamic Caliphate: The military engineers working on a design for a new tank that Yemen can call its own is finally successful. They call their design the Saladin-1D, or S1D Main Battle Tank. The design is modified for a desert, with a complex filtration and air conditioning system designed to keep heat, and sand from entering and staying in the main armament, the vehicle, and gears. The armor is 5.825 inches thick, which is smaller than regular M60 Patton's it was based on, to allow for more maneuverability in the desert. The gun armament is a design all on its own, a 105mm As'ad Rifled Gun. The tracks are specifically designed for desert sands, and its operational range is 320 miles, and can go 35 miles per hour. The design is set to be produced as a prototype in six months, and from there, further testing will commence.

The Channel League army is also boosted with tanks from Turkey and valuable leader experience. With the new military consolidated the Channel league launched a vicious campaign into the French countryside. Once the immediate area around the coast is secured, soldiers are stationed in all major cities of the League, acting as a police force to help quell piracy and crime. The main force, comprised almost entirely out of French and Dutch volunteers, is sent up the French coast toward Calais, hoping to clear the coast to the Belgian border. from Etaples and Eu the land force branched off and was ordered toward Arras. With upgraded technology and aid from the US the Channel League undergoes the greatest industrial boom in decades. Towns are equipped to defend themselves, housing factories and military garrisons. Roads are also patrolled and repaired by local volunteers, patching up roads along the coast, into Brittany, and into Picardy. Large scale trade with France and Picardy begins for the first time since the apocalypse, connecting all of France. German travelers bring news of the so-called “Great Highway”, a loose network of roads from Berlin to Hannover, to Dusseldorf, branching off the reach all of Germany. Militia in major towns are responsible for caring for their section of road, creating shortcuts and supply caches along the old national highways. It is believed that the road is most likely used by the Holy Roman Empire for communication and trade, and we organize a force from the Netherlands to connect Amsterdam to the network. More M1 Abrams tanks are made to replace older models. Further investigation goes into the cause of the Challenger explosion. Despite the fierce political debates across the nation, every one pauses as President Gerald Ford delivers a speech over television, saying “We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and 'slipped the surly bonds of Earth' to 'touch the face of God”.

The Bay Republic asks its allies Cascadia, Alaska and all the members of the Pacific Co-operative Organization for aid in the Californian War.
After a costly invasion naval invasion the Northern Californians are pushed from San Francisco. The invaders initially landed near the city by sea, and were trapped in a near trench warfare style stalemate for weeks. Both sides suffered heavy casualties, on the outskirts of the city, which was constantly bombed by the RCS Modoc. The BRS Good Omen, which was severely damaged, leads a fleet of privateers against the Northern Californian fleet, engaging the withdrawing ships, but sinking in the process.
Despite the uneasy cease in the invasion of New Mexico, a strong prejudice remains against the West Texans. Many are forced to leave their homes near White Sands or El Paso, fleeing toward the border.
Since June is almost here, everyone start nominating pages for next month’s featured article on the talk page.
The 1986 FIFA World Cup occurs in Argentina and Uruguay (results coming soon).
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, Electro and Techno continue to rise in popularity. Tatsunori Katsumata continues working on 東方靈異伝 ～ Highly Responsive to Prayers and will have it released later this year. The Republic of Kyushu continues to rebuild the island. The Miyako colony expands slightly. Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone sends aid to help the Bay Republic, a member of the Pacific Co-operative Organisation, against North California.
- Northern California diplomacy: The Fascist regime in Eureka denounces your action, being a far-right nation opposing another far-right nation. However, the Interim Government in Seattle and the Transitional Committee, being established by the Jeffersonian rebels to be the legitimate government of Northern California, welcomes the action.
Republic of Susquehanna: Agriculture improves, and more food is stored. A canal is built to connect Bloomsburg with Sunbury. A subway is built, too. More infrastructure is built on Socotra, and rail lines connect the whole island with ferries transporting people and goods between islands.
Kingdom of Italy: The S.S.S Garibaldi departs and lands in Hong Kong
creating Italian Hong Kong. The Kingdom begins planning to build a small factory in Hong Kong. Milan is Liberated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The people line the streets of Italy and party. We ask the UR to give the Kingdom a tiny piece of Argentina for Italians to live (three miles squared). The Italian government sends ambassadors all over the world for Italians to move back to Italy and get jobs because their economy is booming. Venice must rejoin the Kingdom. Long hail the Kingdom and the King. Can the next World Cup be in Nova Roma? and when is the Map coming?
- United Republics Diplomacy: Rejects Kingdom of Italy's request of purchasing land within the UR.
You need an algorithm to invade Hong Kong.
Isn't Hong Kong Zombie occupied? And can you meet on chat now to discuss this?
Texas crushes the rebels (assuming my algorithm is correct). Muñiz thanks the New Mexican Alliance for their help and offers food to the fragile city-states with the ultimate goal of establishing a trade route. In return, Texas asks the NMA to fight against West Texan discrimination.
Commonwealth: Two bombers loaded with massive tanks of Phlaxicortin-X, escorted by about 40 fighter jets fly to Malaysia and drop mist on Zombie Hordes in the area. Researchers will be dropped in June to observe the effects of the dropped mist. Continues development and expansion.
Wu: Asks the World to support Wu over the ROC and tells them about corrupted officials and the dictatorship of the Chiang family in Taiwan. Guizhou, Shizhaun, Gangxu, Yunnan and Liaoning is recaptured by Wu forces. Tractors are used in farming and massive water projects begin in the Yangtze river. 5,000 soldiers, 100 tanks, three destroyers and one aircraft carrier lands in Hong Kong and Hong Kong, Macau and the surrounding islands are claimed. Italian settlers are allowed to continue their work, but will now be registered as an alien or an immigrant. Increases army score by 0.25. What are my scores?
Northern California: The Interim Government in Seattle, led by Mark Robinson, asks Cascadia to help the Jeffersonian rebels on their fight against Pittankel. However, the Fascist regime asks for an alliance with Texas, also one of the bullies in the east. It was the Pacific Co-operative Organization's worst nightmare: the hegemony of two Fascist states ruling what was once the US Midwest. In February 1987 Pittankel disappeared from public view. Some said he committed suicide in his safe house; others said he fled to Texas. However, Bill Edwards, succeeded Pittankel as Caudillo. He corrected the problem on the Black Hoods by appointing the health minister Dr. Francis Wood, the son of Communist dictator Albert Wood, to the premiership in March. He said that to correct the problem with the Black Hoods, they should inject a limited amount of Phalanx to the hybrid commandos. He also manages to arrange a peace treaty with PCO, ending the war by June. Asks mod for a peace treaty.
- You actually have to arrange the conditions of the treaty, you can't just say it's over. G greg e (talk)
- Sorry, typo again. I meant that he manages to arrange negotiations for a peace treaty that was scheduled to end the war by June. IstocnoSarajevo (talk) 02:54, June 2, 2013 (UTC)

United States: Harold Stassen is elected president and begins his term. Peaceful ties are established with the successor states to the USSR, hopefully leading to nuclear disarmament. The Channel League military is further developed, stationing the majority of its fleet at Brighton where a new headquarters and upgraded dock is planned and under construction. Regional naval bases also begin construction in Amsterdam and Brest, to facilitate some sections of the main fleet. Work continues on the Cyprus fortifications, and the reconstruction in the Middle East. Amsterdam is connected to the Great Highway, allowing contact with the Holy Roman Empire.
Reagan would have been in California as governor when the apocalypse started. If anything, he'd be a leader in one of the nations there. Hell, he's probably dead. Doctor Evulz (talk) 19:23, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
The more I think about it, the more I think you're right.
United Republics: Continues development of a lunar base plan. Rocket with researchers is sent to URSA Space Station. Continues to upgrade industry. Begins to research geothermal and upgraded solar power. An economic boost is seen due to the World Cup's presence.

With an Italian invasion of Hong Kong imminent, the Hong Kong inhabitants ask Wu for aid to defend their city.
Mongolia, now a democratic nation, begins to rebuild its nation to be more modern and dominant in the region. Its military is reformed. The Mongolians establish a client Republic of Inner Mongolia to take advantage of the chaos in former China.
A Mexican warlord known as Abelino Gutierrez begins to gather a small following in Mexicali. He begins to consolidate control of the city, causing crime and refugees to flow into Salton and the surrounding region.
The United Republic of Leavenworth goes on a massive campaign of expansion through eastern Kansas. The state had long been mostly devoid of Zombies for years. A conflict rises with the neighboring survivor state of Springfield, which is evidently intent on perpetuating the old Kansas-Missouri rivalry.
Surviving Mafia members overthrow the corrupt merchant government after discovering that the crooked merchants had a mole release the Zombies in the government building as a way to seize power.
The fundamentalist Mormon dictatorship of Deseret is overthrown by a rebel group calling themselves the Sons of Liberty. The New Crusader-backed dictatorship had lost the support of even the Mormon population, and only stayed in power because of the New Crusader jackboot. The new regime approaches the recovering Republic of Utah on the reunification of the state.
The city-state of Tucson, wishing to rid themselves of the Apache raider menace, declares war on what they call the Apache Republic. They meet absolutely no resistance, with the majority of the population being former Mexicans who are unhappy with Pedro's iron fisted rule. They successfully annex the nation, officially declaring themselves as the true Republic of Atzlan. Pedro and his cronies are executed for crimes against humanity. The shattered remnants of his raiders flee further south, where they are either killed by local gangs.
Remember to update your scores on the Nation Scores page whenever you upgrade.
Congratulations to the Middle East War page for becoming this month's featured article/
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, Electro and Techno continue to rise in popularity. Tatsunori Katsumata releases 東方靈異伝 ～ Highly Responsive to Prayers, the first game in the Touhou Project series, for the NEC PC-9801. The Republic of Kyushu continues to rebuild the island.
Texas asks for a conference with the New Mexican Alliance in Albuquerque to decide on a peace treaty and settle border disputes. Meanwhile, Muñiz reveals his "Oklahoma Campaign", a plan to liberate and install democratic governments in all of Oklahoma by 1995. To the best of Texas's knowledge, there are no organized governments in the area. The Panhandle is colonized in late February with refugees and survivors sent to hospitals in northern Texas. In hopes of improving the economy, the industry is upgraded to 1.25. Leaders of the KNP are interrogated to see if they have any sort of connection to Duke. Meanwhile, a group of explorers, including John Ellis "Jeb" Bush, have been sent alongside a military convoy to explore what used to be California.
Kingdom of Italy: The army continues pushing north with plans to invade Switzerland. Group of Pretorian guards sweep into Yugoslavia trying to free the Croatians from the Yugoslavian oppressors. The Pretorian guard is NOT invading, it is just playing a CIA-like role. The Kingdom outlines all the areas that it claims. It claims Malta, Croatia, Venice, and Switzerland. The Regia Marina begins to build itself up. We ask the ULN to peacefully have a decision to our Hong Kong colony.
Northern California: The Transitional Committee, being established by the Jeffersonian rebels as the legitimate government of Northern California, welcomes the peace negotiations with the Bay Republic. The Interim Government-in-exile in Seattle appreciates the action. However, the Fascist regime's forces were able to cut a pathway, the so-called 'Moses' corridor', in Butte-Plumas Province to send supplies and basic needs to the settlers of the Desert Republic.
The Transitional Committee's negotiations for the treaty:
- Creation of a UR-style federation consisting of the successor nations to the US state of California, under the shared presidency of Northern California and the Bay Republic.
- The disestablishment of the Legion Party and the Iron Shield, whose aggressive ideology is the root cause of the war, and outlawing the re-establishment of either of the two organizations.
- An international tribunal that tries the North Californian war criminals, especially high-ranking ones.
- North California may retain the CUAZEF, but only for expansion towards infected territory, NEVER for attacking any nation.
United Islamic Caliphate: (My browser is still going crazy. Which is best for wikis, Chrome, Mozilla, or Explorer?) Now that the factories are built and testing is over, the Saladin-1D is put into production, and is quickly integrated as an important part of the 1st United Armored Division. Some older and obsolete tanks are put into storage and their former operators are trained to operate a Saladin-1D. The two new councilmen are older men, different from the younger ones who occupied, and continue to do so, the Council. These men offer a more conservative and consistent view of how Islam should govern the UIC, which is different than the Liberal-Conservative younger men in the Council currently. Social programs are cut back slightly to add money to the military budget to accommodate the new tanks, and as a result, funding for welfare and pensions goes down, but the Caliph El-Amin I goes on a sort of propaganda campaign across the country, advocating need for individual action to aid each other, rather than needing the government for all things. This puts him at odds with some Councilmen.
- I recommend Chrome, personally.
Wu: Asks the World to support Wu over the ROC and tells them about corrupted officials and the dictatorship of the Chiang family in Taiwan. The territories captured by Wu forces are consolidated and the survivors are assigned roles. The first regiment of infantry named the "13th Regiment" is made solely out of survives. It is the most powerful regiment and the number 13 is used as a name because it inflict "bad luck" on its enemies. Tractors are used in farming and massive water projects begin in the Yangtze river. 10,000 soldiers land in Hong Kong and begin building defences. Ask Japan, USSR and the United States for support of Wu over the Kingdom of Italia, if the latter invades Hong Kong. The 2nd aircraft carrier is built, named W.S.S Jiguan. Obtains an army score of 2.5
- Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone will support Wu in case the Italians invade Hong Kong.
I will be leaving for two days, please no one invade me.Ninjasvswarriors (talk) 09:16, June 2, 2013 (UTC). If Italia invades Hong Kong, then two aircraft carriers and five destroyers will blockade the ports and three regiments of infantry including the 13th will arrive.
Scandinavia grows its industry, with companies like Nokia and Ericsson experiencing their first growth since pre-Zombie days. A restructure takes place, creating four states within Scandinavia - Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Lappland. We send our army to clear out the rest of Norway, with success. We ask Norway to join us, and show to the added benefit both of our nations would receive. We take the regions of Leningrad/St. Petersburg, and make sure the city is called St. Petersburg, and all Communism is wiped out.
- We ask Russia to buy Karelia and Sapmi for $5,000,000
- We threaten invasion of Norway should they not comply.
Chan Santa Cruz: The Panama Colony is reinforced and expands slightly. The ACE is unveiled and begins to patrol with convoys, successfully preventing several attacks. With the economy flourishing the Halac Uinic authorises an expansion of the main country, as far as Villahermosa. We send a diplomatic convoy to Mexicali to size up the intentions of this new state. We resend diplomatic envoys to all the southwest US and North Mexican States asking for trade agreements. We ask Belize for an Alliance and military passage.
- Texas receives an envoy and asks Chan Santa Cruz for trade agreements.
- Chan Santa Cruz: We have very little ammunition or guns or metal. We do have excess of wood, and will throw in two ACES to sweeten the deal....? This is David Rain my session has 'timed out' grrr.
- Texas agrees to those terms.
- Belize: Agrees to a military alliance and to military passage.
Dinetah: The Republic of Dinetah, long been a small, isolated nation centered on Farmington, NM, on the cusp of survival begins to break out of its shell. Dinetah receives Chan Santa Cruz's convoy, and happily accepts trade, Oil for wheat perhaps? Builders begin to build more farms on the San Juan River, in hopes of creating a large surplus in food. Our military is expanded somewhat, if we encounter some enemy states in the wastes.
Chan Santa Cruz Diplomacy: We thank you for the offer. We shall send maize (wheat equivalent) and timber in exchange for coal and oil. We also thank you for the alliance. Long may we partner for the greater good of the people of Earth.
United Republics: Continues to plan colony, Artimus 6 is sent to investigate some areas to place it. UR begins to reach out to many Brazilians in their borders to ask if they should give Brazil a real government.
Austria: The Austrian economy is improved as industry expands to help fuel the future expansion into the Balkans and Germany.
The nations of Switzerland, Croatia and Venice, worried that Italy may pose a threat to their sovereignty, agree to a defense pact, vowing to aid each other in times of war. They invite Austria to also sign the treaty.
Survivors from Joplin, Missouri begin leaving their town in search of supplies and other groups of survivors. The small declared nation of Joplin sends scouts down Route 44 into Springfield, and into northeast Oklahoma. Survivors along the Kansas border join the union, warning the Joplin inhabitants of the hostile Kansas survivors.
Heavily influenced by Russia and the former USSR, the Republic of Thrace joins the Collective Security Treaty Organization.
In preparation for the 1988 Austrian election scheduled to take place in a little over a year, candidates begin campaigning across the country. Deidrich Dopfer, former Progressive Party nominee who was highly successful in the 1984 election, begins campaigning as an independent candidate. Arnold Schwarzenegger, nationalist newcomer and former bodybuilder, begins campaigning for the Nationalist nominee.
The Austrian Nationalist Party begins advocating for military expansion into Slovenia to establish a coastline. This new political issue becomes known as Küsteland, and gains ground among a small minority of Austrian citizens. Erwin Grosskopf, speaker of the house remains unwilling to advocate or comment on the issue.
The nation of Brazil continues its efforts to unite its nation. The majority of the interior has been cleared of infection, excluding the Provinces of Amazonas, Acre, Rondonia, and parts of Mato Grosso. Thousands of volunteers are trained to combat the Zombies, increasing the army score 1.25.
Chinese soldiers enter Hong Kong to help defend against potential attack.
The Southwest League (city-states of New Mexico) welcomes the envoys from Chan Santa Cruz. The League hopes it can open trade with the nation in the future, once a clear trade route has been established.
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, Electro and Techno continue to rise in popularity. 東方靈異伝 ～ Highly Responsive to Prayers gains popularity and sells well. Tatsunori Katsumata begins his plan on making the plot for his next game. He also establishes his own company, called Team Hakodate Yoshika. The Republic of Kyushu continues to rebuild the island.
Commonwealth: I missed yesterday so I'll include yesterday`s post in this one. The mist that was dropped on Malaysia is showing the same effects as it did in the laboratory. The Zombie that was injected and the Zombie that was gassed with Phlaxicortin-X are recovering and are now sentient to their surroundings. It is declared that a primitive cure has been developed, the cure will not be distributed internationally until enough is produced and the Malaysian `cured` Zombie/humans are showing signs of full recovery. Development and expansion continues.
South Africa's economy grows. The post will be expanded.
Texas continues expansion into Oklahoma, completely taking over the panhandle. In Juarez, gangs are cleared out and hopefully, order will be restored soon. With the peace with New Mexican alliance settling in, Texas does as they promised and sends crews to clean up and rebuild destroyed areas. However, they are not very willing to redesign Santa Fe in its "retro" style that Futura asks for. Texas also wishes to promote trade. In July, another surprise occurs: Texas votes to join the UDL. The President's approval ratings are hovering around 60% for ending Duke's Revolt quickly and settling the dispute with New Mexico. He believes he's done all that he wanted to, but will "continue to rebuild and aid those in need".
Dinetah: The exploration party returns, having made contact with Las Vegas, but the area between them is still infested with Zombies. We announce plans to upgrade our industry with the maize and lumber that we have acquired from Chan Santa Cruz, and the wheat that we have domestically produced. We discover the other New Mexican city-states, and therefore the Southwest League. Secret plans are made to dominate the league and eventually unite all of the city-states. In the midst of all of this activity, two major councilmen, Henry Franklin (Head of Expansion) and Ahiga Haskie (Commander of the Armed Forces). While Franklin's death was not majorly publicized, Haskie's death was gut-wrenching to most Dinetahns, for he was their "Father of The Country". Elections will be held next year, and several candidates ready for the open spots, for many more Council people are retiring. Population increases, and many new families move to areas outside the San Juan Valley, most notably toward the Painted Desert and north to southern Colorado. Craftsmen begin constructing a wall around Farmington. I need to make a flag fom scratch, can you show me any good programs for it?
I recommend paint.net. (URL: http://www.getpaint.net). It's free and works very well.
Kingdom of Italy: The kingdom's first artificial satellite is sent up into space on K6 Regia rocket. All of original OTL Italy (excluding the islands) is liberated. We ask that the UR of the Med and Granada disband itself and merge with the kingdom. Crete would become Independent and Granada a UR vassal. The invasion of Zombie-occupied Albania begins. We encourage the Croatians to rebel and Venice to join the kingdom.
East Africa: The EAF forces make their move Tanga, wiping out a portion of the Zombie forces and destroying the rebel militias that refuse to ally with the government. The recruitment of 750 men and women for the military takes place, and the construction of light armored vehicles begins in the city of Zanzibar. The birth rate slowly increases with a government-operated program for the conception of children between soldiers and women taken from the conquered territories. Development of an artificial womb and sperm becomes the goal of many scientists in the nation, though novel to many in the field of genetics. Scouts move on to Dodoma for the next military move of the security forces. The industrial base of the nation is upgraded by 0.25 to 0.50.
Elba: A new airport is built in Marina di Capo (seat of Campo nell'Elba County).
Republic of Susquehanna: Reinforced buildings are constructed to prevent damage in a hurricane, and another communication satillite is launched. Williamsport International Airport is expanded to accomidate new planes.
Austria: The Austrian economy is improved as industry expands to help fuel the future expansion into the Balkans and Germany. This becomes a hot topic for the elections coming up as the idea of Küsteland becomes popular as the Nationalists lead efforts for military expansion into Slovenia to establish a coastline. Nationalist nominee Arnold Schwarzenegger helps bring this idea to a wider audience and increases its popularity. Leaders of the Nationalist party praise Arnold Schwarzenegger for this and he is put forward as a leading candidate. This plan helps to convince the Austrian government to sign the defense pact with Switzerland, Croatia and Venice as the government sees these nations as valuable allies in helping Austria in its quest for Küsteland.
Scandinavia grows its industry, with companies like Nokia and Ericsson experiencing continued growth and beginning to send technology and supplies to Russia, the Livonian Confederation and Italy. Norway is threatened with invasion, and we offer them a good degree of autonomy, with their own monarch, should he swear allegiance to Harold. St. Petersburg is introduced as part of Finland.
- We warn Italy to hold off on any further military expansion. (Maltan-Croatian and Hong Kong).
- We ask Russia to buy Karelia and Sapmi for $5,000,000
- Las Vegas: We expand our territory out into the desert securing more area to try to inhabit.
- Vegas Dip: We ask to sign the Diamond Pact.
The nations of the Switzerland, Croatia, and Venice, worried that Italy may invade them, begin to orchestrate rebellion in the northern half of Italy, where the Kingdom of Italy has little control over. Northern rebels declare the Kingdom of Lombardy, ruled by a Venetian puppet.
With a chance to rebuild the city of Santa Fe, the government of Futura uses building supplies from Texas to lay the foundations for an extravagant, Las Vegas-like city. Modern defenses and city functions are planned into the city grid. A large stone wall is planned to cover the length of the Pecos river along the city.
The nation of Norway finally agrees to join the nation of Scandinavia.
In a surprise turn of events Deidrich Dopfer, popular Austrian independent candidate, aligns with the Nationalist Party, putting himself in the running against Arnold Schwarzenegger for the Nationalist Party nomination.
The city of Heraklion is re-constructed by the new Cretan government. A constitution is signed and the national military continues to clear opposition across the island.
The nations of Austria, Switzerland, Croatia, and Venice sign a defensive pact, declaring that they will aid each other in times of war.
Russia rejects the Scandinavian offer to sell Karelia and Sapmi.
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, Electro and Techno continue to rise in popularity. Tatsunori Katsumata continues his plan of making the plot for his next game. The Republic of Kyushu continues to rebuild the island.
Kingdom of Italy: The Kingdom is in chaos as a bomb explodes in the Nova Roma town square killing one member of the royal family, three MPs, and eight tourists: three Americans, two Scandinavians and three Italians. The investigators at the scene find that it might have been orchestrated by Lombardy and Venetian-funded terrorists. The army is put into full gear in Lombardy. The Kingdom releases the first laptop. We ask the Pact of Diamond signers to invade Venice as the Venetian troops begin to act aggressively on the border for war. Any nation in their right mind will help the Italians. Note: There will be no invasion unless there is extra support of the Pact of Diamond members and hopefuls. Hopefuls, we might let you sign if you help in this operation.
- Scandinavia: demands Venice halt all terrorist activity in Italy, and that Lombardy is freed from Venetian rule. We demand $10,000,000 for each of the three Scandinavians killed in Nova Roma, or else this will be considered an act of war. We are furious that even a drop of Scandinavian blood would be spilled. We incoporate Norway as a Kingdom into Scandinavia, and grow the industry by 0.25.
In Texas, Muñiz announces his future plans. There are two main points: the growth and reconstruction of the economy and a break in Texas's global isolationism. For the first point, Texas opens up for international trade worldwide, and Industry is upgraded by 0.25. New trade routes are created as a way to ease tensions with New Mexico. For the second point, Muñiz announces Texas's support for the Kingdom of Italy, citing the pain terrorist attacks have brought to Texas. Muñiz offers his condolences for the families of victims and states that Venice and Lombardy have "overstepped their boundaries". However, he urges a closer investigation, fearing that the whole thing may be a hoax. He cautions the New Mexican states about Dinetah, stating in a secret message, "I have a gut feeling that all is not right with them." Texas investors invest in businesses in the new Santa Fe. Expansion in Oklahoma is suspended for now, as fears of a war in Italy become greater.
Dinetah: Dinetah, seeing that the other states in the Southwestern Alliance are under Texas' sphere of influence, halts expansion in the New Mexico area, instead turning its eyes toward Arizona and Colorado. Settlers heading north through the Animas River Valley come upon the ruins of Durango, CO, and inhabit it. It becomes a major farming center, and settlers hope to eventually form a healthy mining business in the mountains to the north of it. Settlers continue to also pour west. The Four Corners Monument is discovered and it is rebuilt as a Monument to Dinetahn Courage. The wall around Farmington is finished, and most of the construction workers move to the town of Teec Nos Pos to work on the monument.
- Kingdom Diplomacy: We ask that Dineth stand up for the Kingdom after the bombings.
- Dinetah D: We condemn the bombings and apologize that we can't help very much, for Dinetah has very little power outside the American Southwest. We support Italian actions wholeheartedly, but we warn you away from war, which could cripple Italy and sow seeds of hatred between Venice and the Kingdom.
United Republics: Lunar Colony plans are finalized. Artimus Seven is sent up with eight astronauts to establish the landing site and attempt to create a small building and underground structure near the Lunar North Pole near a lava tube. The base will use an algae-based gas exchange in addition to compressed O2, O3, CO2, and Nitrogen reserves. The base will be powered by solar panels, with a design for a nuclear reactor to be implemented into the grid. Artimus 8 and 9 will send up crucial supplies to the colony, including those to establish a farm at the North Pole which will use artificial light in addition to the natural light. This base, at its max, is planned for 100 permanent residents, and up to an additional 150 seasonal workers, researchers, etc. UR intelligence agents continue to stir up support for UR inclusion in Southern Brazil, up to 25%, and in the cities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro around 15-20%. UR scientists in Antarctica improve on solar panels and their functions. Because of recent discoveries and commitment to research and vast production of its results, industry increases by 0.25.
- Kingdom Diplomacy: We ask that the UR stand up for the Kingdom after the bombings
- UR: UR sends an investigative intelligence team to look into the bombings.
- United States Diplomacy: We propose a joint space base with the UR.
- UR: Says yes to the idea, as this is a very expensive venture and any relief is good, and would like to know how the US would be willing to help.
- US: We believe that a lunar base may be too ambitious right now, but we could launch a space station that orbits the Earth.
Republic of Susquehanna: A rocket with a small GPS satellite is launched for the military. A radical cell of secessionist/gangsters declare the Free State of Berwick. They capture two tanks and manufacture 50 gyroscopes. Military strength of the enemy is: two 1A4 Leopard Tanks, 50 gyroscopes (Armed with hand grenades and rifles), 183 pick-up trucks with machine guns, one Cessna, three helicopters, 20 fishing boats. They recruit 500 former Libertad members, 290 neo-Nazi's, 100 neo-Confederates, and around 2000 secessionists. Many are armed with M-1 Garands or M-14's that were put in reserve in Berwick. The city was barricaded before the formation of the RoS as protection from Zombies.
- RoS Diplomacy: We ask the US, UIC, Texas, EHU, and ISAF for military aid.
United States: Peaceful ties are established with the successor states to the USSR, hopefully leading to nuclear disarmament. The Channel League military is developed further, stationing the majority of its fleet at Brighton where a new headquarters and upgraded dock is planned and is under construction. Regional naval bases also begin construction in Amsterdam and Brest to facilitate some sections of the main fleet. Work continues on the Cyprus fortifications, and the reconstruction in the Middle East. Amsterdam is connected to the Great Highway, allowing contact with the Holy Roman Empire. The first traders begin bridging the gap between the Channel League and the Holy Roman Empire. We decide to stay neutral in the conflict in Italy, but because of our blooming economic ties with the enemies of Italy, we favor Austria and indirectly support their efforts through trade.
Italian Minister of Defense Giovanni Spadolini is found assassinated and left hanging in the streets of Rome. Opponents of the current government piece together that Spadolini was connected to the bombings earlier that year.
Lombardian militia take the city of Genoa, which was just beginning to be retaken by the Italian government. Supply lines south of Milan are also harassed by militia armed by the northern alliance members.
The Southwest League invites the nation of Dinetah, Aztlan, and Phoenix to join the alliance as full members.
The Bay Republic meets with Northern California in Sacramento to begin discussing peace terms. The drafting of the Treaty of Sacramento begins.
Survivors from Joplin, Missouri continue leaving their town in search of supplies and other groups of survivors, spreading the influence of the Joplin nation. Individual survivor communities, known as tribes, are tied together through commerce. A national militia is also created, as many locals fear the neighboring Kansas-based tribes may take action against them. The United Republic of Leavenworth in turn also establishes a militia to prevent Joplin from taking action against them. The old Kansas-Missouri rivalry is set to spark violence once again.
Abelino Gutierrez, Mexican warlord and leader of the following in Mexicali, begins to branch into Salton territory. The Salton government in Cathedral City declares him an outlaw, launching police raids on known Gutierrez supporters. One of Gutierrez’s main officers is spotted in Slab City, causing a massive shootout in the streets. Many citizens of the Imperial Valley begin to side with Gutierrez after the brutal crackdown.
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, Electro and Techno continue to rise in popularity. Tatsunori Katsumata finishes making the plot for his next game, and begins working on the game itself. Sega begins creating their next console. The Republic of Kyushu continues to rebuild the island.
Kingdom of Italy: The Kingdom's darkest day begins,
when the King the Pope and the Prime minister are in a meeting. They are assassinated. St. Peter's Basilica is bombed destroying Vatican City. Billions of dollars worth of relics are destroyed. The price is the loss of the life of 2000 Italian citizens, tourists and military men. We ask the ULN to launch an invasion of Venice, the supporters of the attack. We begin a blockade of Venice and an all out assault as the nation prepares for WAR. Rationing, drafting, training, and Military build up begin. A speech is given saying that Venetians are just trying to slowly chip us down until they can turn it into a vassal.
The Pope would be exceptionally wary. If you recall, when the last Pope lived in Cagliari, he was killed by terrorists, along with the Prime Minister of the CM. The new Pope remembers this, and would loathe to leave his safe capital in Buenos Aires. Reximus55 (talk)
The ULN is a peacekeeping organization, so they wouldn't invade. If anything they'd try to stop you.
They could be asked to invade. The UN authorized the Korean Conflict, the US involvement in Libya and the list goes on. It really comes down to whether the member state chooses to go with the ULN's resolution. If this would keep the peace, then they may vote yes. Reximus55 (talk)
Republic of Susquehanna: More troops pour into Columbia County to repel the attackers. Fighters strafe enemy emplacements while the Coast Guard blockades supplies. We again petition for aid from the US and other nations. More natural gas is found and stored. Due to the proximity of the war to Bloomsburg, the capitol is relocated to Coal Mountain. Catholics clamor for war.
- Texas D: Texas aids its ally, sending 1,000 man and fifteen tanks to help the RoS.
Texas: once again warns the Southwest League against letting Dinetah in. Meanwhile, the tragedy in Italy continues to be a talking point in Texas. The destruction of Vatican City infuriates the Catholics in the nation. They call for vengeance. 2500 soldiers are sent to keep peace in Italy. Meanwhile, the nation of Texas condemns the United Republic for its space colony, bringing up the Outer Space Treaty's clause against colonization of any part of outer space. Texas makes plans to introduce a similar treaty into the ULN. However, research is put into re-using old NASA buildings, like the one in Houston.
Where in the Outer Space Treaty does it say you cannot colonize outer space? All it says is that no claims can be made that do not give sovereignty and equal opportunity to all nations. Also, that any activity must be peaceful and not contain weapons of mass destruction. G greg e (talk)
"Outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, is not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means." - Article II Doctor Evulz (talk) 10:58, June 5, 2013 (UTC)
Dinetah: Dinetah happily joins the Southwest League. Meanwhile, in Durango, a brickworks is completed, speeding up production of houses in the area and therefore settlement. Many believe that Dinetah has taken its greatest leap forward in industry ever due to the recent developments. (Industry increases by 0.25). The population of Dinetah has reached a symbolic 50,000. The day it reached 50,000 (January 25), has been declared a national holiday by George Smithsson, the Head of Domestic Affairs. Mirroring Texas and other nations, Catholics in Dinetah are outraged by the destruction of the Vatican. Eric Dele, a wealthy capitalist, known for an absurd proposal for an economy based on fertilizer factories, speaks at a political rally in Farmington. "All over the world, people have cried out, due to the attacks on the Vatican. We cannot help Italy, for we are puny. We shall not be for long. Follow me, and Dinetah shall take its rightful place among the great powers! His speeches inspire the nation, and a new political party (the Dinetah First Party) is quickly formed around him. The population continues to grow and Durango reaches 10,000 people.
Northern California: Cascadian fighter jets staged a surprise attack and destroyed a nuclear reactor somewhere in Siskiyou Province, saying that the reactor was used by the Fascist regime to process nuclear weapons against the Bay Republic and its allies. And the darkest day of the regime begins. Louis Pittankel's whereabouts were leaked by an insurgent spy to a group of TCC and Cascadian officers, who were planning a land invasion on the northern border. His whereabouts, acoording to the spy, who pretended as one of Pittankel's guards, said that he resided in a heavily-armed mansion not far from Montauge, in Siskiyou Province. A day later, a group of TCC partisans captured Louis Pittankel and his mistress, Anita Klaubarg. Some of Pittankel's colleagues managed to escape, but most of them were also nabbed by the partisans. Gen. Bill Edwards, the commander-in-chief of the facsist regime, was booted out from power due to a no-confidence vote by the National Assembly, now dominated by a coalition of the Californian Freedom Party and the Liberal Vanguard Party of California. After the no-cofindence vote, Prime Minister Francis Wood became provisional head of state for two days, which ended after rebels finally capture Eureka on February 17, 1988. The Great Californian State has finally come to an end, and Ronald Reagan, the chairman of the Transitional Committee of California, declared his government the legitimate ruling government of Northern California. The treaty is to be signed on March 1, 1988.
United Republics: Supplies and materials continue to be sent to build up the lunar base. Nations are invited to join in the lunar base. Intellegence agents expand Southern Brazil interest in joining in the UR up to 30% in the most southern regions. Catholics in the region call for action against the terrorists, however, the Pope warns they must be just and patient when looking at the suspects and not overreact.
- Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone would like to join in the lunar base project.
- RoS Diplomacy: The RoS will launch componenets, and provide rockets for the mission.
- Wu Diplomacy: Wu would like to join the lunar mission.
- Kingdom Diplomacy: We would like to propose the ULNSA for all the nations in the world to co-operate with one Space Agency. ULNSA stands for United League of Nations space agency.
Wu: Asks the World to support Wu over the ROC and tells them about corrupted officials and the dictatorship of the Chiang family in Taiwan. Tractors are used in farming and massive water projects begin in the Yangtze river. 10,000 soldiers land in Hong Kong and begin building defences. Ask Japan, USSR and the United States for support of Wu over the Kingdom of Italia, if the latter invades Hong Kong. All previous P.R.C provinces are at least captured by one or more Wu regiments.
- Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone will support Wu against Italy.
Chan Santa Cruz: A major push is held through Zombie occupied lands, being easier than expected due to many Zombies having rotted in the heat. We make it as far as Mexico City, where we dig in. We ask the South west league and other North American nations to aid us in this fight to clear Mexico or at the vey least establish a safe trade route north.
United States: Peaceful ties are established with the successor states to the USSR, hopefully leading to nuclear disarmament. The Channel League military is further developed, stationing the majority of its fleet at Brighton where a new headquarters and upgraded dock is planned is under construction. Regional naval bases also begin construction in Amsterdam and Brest, to facilitate some sections of the main fleet. Work continues on the Cyprus fortifications, and the reconstruction in the Middle East. Amsterdam is connected to the Great Highway, allowing contact with the Holy Roman Empire. The first traders begin bridging the gap between the Channel League and the Holy Roman Empire. We decide to stay neutral in the conflict in Italy, but because of our blooming economic ties with the enemies of Italy, we favor Austria and indirectly support their efforts through trade.
The terrorist attacks cause many to join the Italian army. Opponents of the Italian government uncover evidence of the terrorist attack being orchestrated by the government, infuriating many. The death of Giovanni Spadolini and other high ranking Italian officers is believed to have been in an effort to cover up the conspiracy.
Unbiased Scandinavian researchers have proven that the attacks on Rome were in fact terrorist attacks funded by Venetian Lombardy to create chaos in Italy.
The people of the the Guianas begin to distrust the UR settlers who have taken much of the coast. What was once believed to be relief mission taken on by the Argentinians, the settlement has occupied much of the coastal region, taking away homes and businesses from local inhabitants. Small slums have even begun to appear across the border where many refugees and poor have taken up home.
Rafael Gallegos, a Venezuelan native, begins to rally support from the native people of the Guianas. A fluent speaker of English, Gallegos preaches across Guyana, causing many to take up nationalist views. Violence breaks out against the most ambitious settlers of the UR territory and some British citizens. In the city of Bartica armed protesters forcefully remove all UR settlers, retaking the city.
Desmond Hoyte, president of Guyana, hopes to end the violence in Guyana, saying in an interview, “We are still a strong and well governed nation. We must not resort to tyranny. However, we will keep our lands sovereign.” The other nations of the Guianas take up similar stances.
The Treaty of Sacramento is officially signed, ending the war in California. With the new government firmly established, all armed rebellions officially disband. The new government begins considering renaming the nation to Jefferson. Most are in favor instead of renaming a state Jefferson.
The former Republic of Deseret agrees to reunite with the Republic of Utah after months of negotiation.
Lombardian militia remain firmly entrenched along the northern border of Italy, awaiting invasion. Cities and towns in Lombardy are restored, and a provisional government is established. The armies of Venice, Croatia and Switzerland are mobilized and await further orders. Local news describe the situation as being “at the breaking point.”
The navies of Venice and Croatia are consolidated and put on high alert. The fleet begins harassing Italian trade ships along the coast, successfully sinking or seizing dozens of ships.
Mongolia begins sponsoring settlements in Inner Mongolia. Chinese citizens in the region are assimilated and protected by the Mongolian government. Much of the area around the former Mongolian border is settled by the nation.
Falklands: We drop troops into Bartica, and use non-lethal force to bring a large number of protesters into custody before being extracted (with the prisoners) by helicopter. We further expand the smaller city.
- Kingdom Diaplomacy: We ask that the Falklands support Italy.
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, Electro and Techno continue to rise in popularity. Tatsunori Katsumata continues working on the game. Sega continues creating their next console. The Republic of Kyushu continues to rebuild the island.
- Kingdom Diaplomacy: We ask that Japan support Italy.
- Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone refuses to support Italy, due to their attempts to take Hong Kong.
- Kingdom Diaplomacy: Due to terrible press mapping and surveying the kingdom made a mistake by thinking Hong Kong was nationless. We apologize to the people and ask that instead in part of OTL China that Wu give us some people-less land to colonize.
- Wu Diplomacy (Secret): We are willing to share Taiwan or Hainan island with Italia and Japan, if they will support Wu in a imminent Chinese civil war with Wu against Manchuria, Tibet and R.O.C.
- Japan Diplomacy Secret: Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone agrees to support Wu against Manchuria, Tibet, and the Republic of China.
- Kingdom Diplomacy Secret: We Agree to support Wu against all their enemies in OTL Asia, and in exchange we would like Wu to support us in Europe.
Kingdom of Italy: To counter the anti-government Semite we remind the people that one of the Kingdom's very own Royal Family member died in the bombings. The Regia Marina is upgraded by 0.25 as the Kingdom begins preparation of WAR. When Scandinavia officially launches a joint invasion of Venice and Croatia, who are killing our merchants who are just trying to make our computers thrive as the first laptop comes out. We begin fortifying our borders as we prepare for an invasion. The blockade continues stopping at least 20 arm shipments from other nations. Wu? Malta? We officially state the Republic of China and give them five shipments of weapons for stopping corruption and taking back the mainland. We begin occupying north Italy with extreme strength.
- Falklands: We are part of a larger nation that I think is already aiding you (UR?) and if not, we ask that they do
- Wu D: Wu condemns Italy's actions of blockading Wu ships and begins sending destroyers to block Italian ships to R.O.C. However, we will allow the ship to continue its route if it is strictly for commercial uses.
The Commonwealth's post will be erratic for the next few days. We discover that the Zombies that were misted a year or so ago recovered faster than the two in the laboratory. Mass production of the mist begins and all nations of earth are sent an offer to purchase the mist. Continues development and expansion.
- Kingdom Diplomacy: We will buy Phalanx gas and bombers, we ask that the Commonwealth support the Kingdom.
- Dinetah D: Being a poor, small, new nation, Dinetah asks how much the gas costs, before buying.
- Texas D: We are willing to pay for a large amount of the gas.
- Wu D: We are willing to pay for a few gallons of gas.
Alaska: Expansion of the south territory continues.
Scandinavia liberates Iceland, adding them as another Kingdom of Scandinavia. Currently, there are Sweden, Finland, Lappland, Norway, Denmark, and Iceland as Kingdoms of the Empire, with Harold I governing them all. We issue an ultimatum to Venice - let Lombardy go back to Italy, or be decimated by Scandinavian military forces. Our army grows by 0.25, in preparation for the war. We ask the US to send nuclear technology to Scandinavia, and also ask to be a part of the space program.
- United States: We will help develop your nuclear technology for the purpose of energy, but not for weapons.
- We thank the US.
Dinetah: Settlers continue pouring into Durango and the Four Corners area. In particular, the Four Corners area is claimed by both Painted Desert and Dinetah. Tensions remain low, but the government meets with Painted Desert leaders to discuss the borders. Some talk has even been made about combining the two nations, for they share similar forms of government and a strong Navajo heritage, (the word Dinetah being Navajo in origin, among other things.) Teec Nos Pos and the Four Corners Monument remain almost explicitly Dinetan, at least for now. As the Commonwealth has offered their Phalanx Zombie-killing gas to all nations, Dinetah wishes to acquire some to blaze a trade route to Chan Santa Cruz, but concerns have been made about its price.
United Republics: establish better relations with the people of Guiana. Reminding them to vote that the nation is independent and UR sends humanitarian and educational aid to the region. Sends more rockets to the lunar base. Asks Chan Santa Cruz if they would like to increase trade. Troops are stationed near the southern border to begin a path to Mexico City any minute now, with the military expanding. The remainder of Dinetan forces are stationed in Teec Nos Pos to prevent violence between nations. We ask all other Southwest League members to help us in our push south to Chan Santa Cruz. Elections begin, with the results being acquired in Q4 1988.
Texas halts deploying troops over to Italy until further investigations can be done. Despite record popularity, Muñiz has stated that he will not seek re-election this November, saying that he's done all that he needs to do. Carlos Truan appears to be the front runner for the Unionists. However, George H W Bush has gained much support for his actions in the Border Wars and Duke's Revolt. He's seen as a figurehead of a Republican Party coming back from the brink. The KNP, however, is in shambles after Duke's death. Texas also helps unite El Paso and Ciudad Juarez into a single protectorate known as 'Paso'. Order and stability is beginning to be restored in the city, and expansion into northern Chihuahua begins. Texas is very interested in purchasing the mist from the Commonwealth.
They are already united into Paso del Norte.
Wu: Tractors are used in farming and massive water projects begin in the Yangtze river. 10,000 soldiers land in Hong Kong and begin building defences. Settlers arrive in the freed provinces. The army expands and builds up. Asks Italy for a meeting in Hong Kong.
- Kingdom Diplomacy: We will go to a meeting in Hong Kong.
Northern California: With the war over, Ronald Reagan, the chairman of the Transitional Committee, meets Bay Republic leader Virgil Baal (who survived the assassination attempt staged by radical northerners) in a state visit to Sacramento to discuss the formation of a UR-style federation. A plebiscite was held in Northern California whether the country should be renamed Jefferson. However, Prime Minister Manuel Perez dissolves the Transitional Council after the drafting of a new constitution was complete, and proclaimed the Third Republic of California, with Reagan as president. Perez remains as prime minister of the new republic. Asks mod for plebiscite results. An international tribunal convenes in Eureka to start the trials of the North Californian war criminals, as said in the Treaty of Sacramento, especially Louis Pittankel, who was sentenced to death by hanging, and Bill Edwards, who was sentenced to life imprisonment.
- Bay Republic: Refuses the offer to create a UR-style government.
- North Califronia Diplomacy: Here is proof why we push for federation: http://althistory.wikia.com/wiki/1970_to_1972.25_(Night_of_the_Living_Alternate_History_Map_Game). We also wanted to make an official apology for the aggression towards the Bay Republic, saying that it was an act of greed, not for actual unification. The federation is proof that unification can also be done peacefully. We also invite Salton to join the federation, should it be successful, and we would like to aid you for acquiring Los Angeles.
Chan Santa Cruz: We dig in establishing a wall and major defenses around the territory taken. The Provisional Government of Non-Mayan Mexico (El Gobierno Provisional de la No-Maya Mexico or The
GPNMM) is established as a puppet state to rule the new territory until the government can expand slowly to the desired borders. We thank Dinetah for their aid in the push and unveil a S'tela in Chan Santa Cruz dedicated to the nation.
United Islamic Caliphate: A military build-up begins, but no official statement is given as to why. The benefits for Yemeni and Djibouti citizens that join the military increase three-fold, leading to a rise in recruitment numbers, and to the creation of two new divisions for the military, the 2nd United Infantry Division, and the 2nd United Armored Division. An ammunition factory is opened up by the government in Al Marweh, leading to the UIC to become a level 2.50 military power. Twenty more Saladin-1D Main Battle Tanks roll across the assembly lines, increasing their importance in the UIC military. (I decided pretty much last minute to go on a mission trip to Hayesville which is about 30 minutes away, from Sunday to today. That's why I haven't been posting, and my browser works perfectly now, it's Chrome :D.)
