    • Folks, just another thing about map games: the idea is that you only make ONE move a day. Your supposed to give other people, who aren't on all day, everyday, a chance to react to your moves. I always got the impression that Map Games were like Civilization, Risk and/or Axis and Allies: you make moves in your turn, then wait for everyone else to make their moves, then you start the next turn. I'm not trying to sound like a grumpy old guy, and I'm not going to name names this time, but PLEASE FOLLOW MAP GAME RULES, or at least let people know that those RULES HAVE CHANGED. Lieut.

The colonies continue to grow, with the two Indian colonies being expanded by force and increased settling, pushing much deeper into India and connecting the two US Indian Colonies. The Indian Empire demands that it stop, and the US agrees on the terms that it can keep the new territory, which is accepted. US aid to the Empire begins at full speed to bring it economically and militarily to its feet. Feeling that the people of former Mexico actually do not like being in the USA, plebiscites are allowed with the choice to either stay American or join the CSA. Most of Central Mexico votes to join the CSA, and the plebiscites are respected, ceding the pro-CS states to the Confederacy. The USA asks that western Arizona territory be given to the USA for obvious defense reasons in exchange for all of the pro-CS Mexican States.
  • Iberian Empire: Iberian Empire's leader, Franco, asks Moroccan citizens, if they agree, that Morocco would be connected to Iberian Empire, if it would raise the salary of people, working there. The citizens agreed after the voting, which took one month.
  • United Kingdom: Quebec holds referendum, and the outcome overwhelmingly sides with Quebec not joining Confederation (73% to abstain, 26% to join, 1% not counted.) The UK respects their wishes and decides to keep each colony as 3 British dominions (Ontario, Quebec and Acadia). Also, they grow their Indian colonies at a fast rate and the African colonies at a slower rate. British South Africa annexes a small portion of the Orange Free State. Meanwhile, Australia, noticing the recent Japanese expansion into New Guinea, decide to begin colonizing part of the lower area.
    • US Diplomacy: India can no longer be expanded into to, or else India will attack you. The USA will help defend India.
  • German Confederation: Fearing the power of the American Alliance, Prussia agrees to join with the Russian Grand Alliance. However, this is on the condition that Prussia be allowed to unify the Northern German states into one government, the basis of which has already been started with the Economics Union.
  • Russian Empire: Russia whole-heartedly agrees, and will not stand in the way of the German Unification. In addition, Tsar Alexander III oversees the finishing of work on the railroads, with sufficient access to Siberia from Moscow and Saint Petersburg achieved. 300,000 Russian soldiers are sent to aid the Indians in repelling the Americans and British, as well as 3,000 advisors are sent to India to teach them modern European tactics.

    Iberian Empire:
    After its citizens agreed, Iberian empire has connected Morocco. The leader of Morocco has peacefully agreed to connect the lands, but with one condition - Moroccan leader will have influence on Iberian government and will take part in voting. Franco, Iberian Empire's leader, agreed to this condition, and Morocco is connected to Iberian Empire straight away. Professor Perbundo, living in the northern Spain, calls this action a "Totalitarian" action, because of "Total Economy", which Iberian Empire seeks to receive. Franco, on behalf of citizens of Iberian Empire, said: "Do not fear, my people. This is not a war yet. And we're not planning on starting one soon. Remember, that the bigger we are, the more money we will earn. Territory is not the thing. The thing is the money used in that territory, to make the economic stable. If you have any objections to this empire, then leave it. We have open-door policy."

1865.5

Horrified at the British and their continuation to expand into Indian lands, an all out war is declared by India and attacks begin on the British/Indian frontier to stop the expansion. India asks for US and Russian help. The UK is also notified that all land annexed before this turn can be kept, as the USA was allowed to keep there from before as well.

The World in 1865.6
  • United Kingdom:The UK issues an apology to India, and assures them they will give them back their land annexed in eastern India. They send 50,000 troops to keep the peace at the border of India and US India. Also, the division of the three North American colonies (Ontario, Quebec and Acadia) is complete, and becomes official after Queen Victoria's Canada Act of 1865. But this act of dividing instead of uniting the colonies worries the UK, as it's possible that Australia will stay divided instead of uniting. (more to come.)
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The Netherlands offers the Boer states in South Africa a chance to enter the Kingdom of the Netherlands as equal states in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Kingdom of the Netherlands is reformed and the countries of the Netherlands (Europe), the South Antilles of the Netherlands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao), the North Antilles of the Netherlands (Saba and Sint Eustatius), Sint Maarten, Transvaal, Orange Free State, and Natalia. The Dutch East indies and Suriname, however, remain colonies of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and the colonization of Sumatra continues too.
  • United States of America: An alliance is offered to India and 200,000 troops are put on the US-British border between UK Quebec and the USA, and the UK is asked to give Quebec a vote on true independence. War is not wanted with the UK, only the true independence and freedom of Quebec, the rest of Canada can remain British until Doomsday, only the independence and the will of the Quebecois people is wanted. The United States successfully lays the first telegraph line across the Atlantic Ocean and connects it with its West Africa colony, which is then connected to Europe and then to the US India colony, and orders for US Colonial forces to mobilize is given. Railways are begun in US India and in Africa to connect the US Colonies there.
    • UK Diplomacy: The UK denies the US's attempt to make Quebec independent. They say that Quebec will only become independent if they ask for it themselves.
    • US Diplomacy: Fine then, India now has a player, Imperium Guy, and he is my ally. 200,000 more US troops are put on the American Canadian border, giving the US 400,000 men on the Canadian border.
    • UK Diplomacy: The British question the amount of troops placed on the border of Quebec and the US as to why they want Quebec independent. The British warn to move their troops back or else they will force Quebec into Confederation, as the British believe this recent wanting of Quebec to be independent is to annex the rest of the British colonies.
  • France: The French empire expands its colonies in Africa and offers a pact of mutual protection to the British Empire.
    • US Diplomacy: The USA puts 100,000 more troops on the border and the 500,000 total troops are put into 4 armies of 125,000 and prepare to invade Canada secretly, conquer Canada, and give Quebec its independence. And remember, the USA has 5 allies, you have one. You will face war on several fronts, especially India and Canada.
    • UK Diplomacy: Which "Canada" are you thinking of conquering? But besides that, the UK quickly unites the colonies into one Confederation, realizing the possibility of an American takeover. The UK issues 50,000 troops along with 100,000 troops from Ontario, 125,000 troops from Quebec, and 75,000 troops from Acadia, 75,000 troops from Australia and New Zealand and 25,000 troops from British Raj to hold back the US troops. Also, the British accept the French's offer for a mutual protection policy as long as they help stop the invasion of the North American colonies.
    • US Diplomacy: It will take at least another turn for you to get all of your troops from your other colonies and then another to get your troops in place. The USA invades Canada while the UK is still mobilizing and easily begins to take territory. American India is given to India as a gift.
    • UK Diplomacy: It'll take a year to mobilize troops from other colonies? I doubt that. But I have enough Canadian troops on the Ontarian border to keep the peace. The UK, not willing to spend more money on a war after the Crimean War, offers the US a peace treaty; divide Ontario into two and give part of it to the US and split Quebec in half, the one part being independent.
    • US Diplomacy: The treaty is accepted and US troops begin to pull out of British territory while Quebec is recognized and made a US protectorate which is also fully independent. MAKE A MAP PLEASE.
    • UK Diplomacy: The British agree to the US's wishes. The map is done.

    • You could split Oman into 4, with each colonial power (Netherlands, China, Sweden-Norway and Ethiopia) could colonize the area.
    • Oman is a Dutch protectorate, and is as far as the Dutch will go in Arabia for that matter, so you have the Netherlands' grace to go and colonize other parts of Arabia like OTL UAE, Qatar, etc. Note when I say Oman I mean OTL Oman in Arabia, I think the land Sweden has / what you guys think is Oman (as in East Africa) is actually Swahili lands. But then again it might be Omanise colonies :P. Well, that's the way I am interpreting the matter, anyway: VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 12:25, November 3, 2011 (UTC).

    • I never said I was taking over Oman, it is simply a protectorate. Also if we're saying that land in OTL Tanzania is Oman colonies, then the Netherlands and Sweden have an issue, Sweden is attacking my protectorate's colonies >:( Diplomacy is gonna be needed here. Maybe Sweden buys the Southern half of Oman Africa? Invading it is gonna cause a war otherwise... VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 20:49, November 3, 2011 (UTC).
  • Never mind. I just did my researching and it turns out that place is actually the Sultanate of Zanzibar who split from Oman in 1856. So it's not Oman when you invaded Sweden, you attacked Zanzibar so the Netherlands are fine with that! :D VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 12:59, November 4, 2011 (UTC).

    • British Diplomacy: A member of Parliament sends a message to the Iberian Empire, "Barbaric actions? You mean the war with the Indian tribes?

    • Iberian response: "Canada is none of your concern, why would you need it, anyway? It's over five thousand km away from your homeland. It takes more of your men to die in sea to travel there, than the number of bananas you bring from there. I suggest you stop offensive and defensive actions in North America, unless you still have a VALID reason."
    • UK response: "... Canada is a British colony, and an attack on any British colony is an attack on the British. Our actions in trying to protect our own soil is not offensive and it certainly is defensive. It's like a US attack on Morocco."

They never wished to become independent.

    • Dutch Diplomacy: Dutch Diplomats draw up a map on how the Dutch think Africa should be split up (Note we kept in borders of current colonies)
    • I don't think that's a good idea yet; land has to be surveyed and explored before that vast majority can be claimed like that. Maybe as the game goes on and borders get closer to each other with disputes can we actually make a partition proposal.
    • Dude, we're in 1869 :D We're not in 14th century where Africa is completely unknown. And if we know the coastline, that means we can predict how Africa looks like. Doctor261 04:56, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

  • Russian Empire: A full scale invasion of Persia is begun by Russia, with Hind-Baharat expected to join in for support soon thereafter. (How exactly will we go about posting war algorithms? Will this be a strictly mod thing, or will I have to learn something about coding before the week's end?)
    • Chinese Diplomacy: Qing China will join in and help Russia attack Persia. They state that they desire no territory from Persia, as Russia did give them Alyeska (with the money of course). However, China asks if they can get the Russian part of the island of Kuye/Sakhalin

  • German Empire: Germany plans a modest expansion of the army to keep in line with the growing power of the other European nations, though it is decided technology rather than weight of numbers alone will be vital if any conflict should break out.
    • German Diplomacy: Diplomats meet with Sweden-Norway to politely ask that the African Conference be held in Berlin, on "neutral" ground, since Sweden-Norway does have colonies at stake, and holding the conference in Stockholm could be seen as a way to pressure other nations for concessions.

Expansion continues in Indochina, with more of Burma being taken over and it is predicted that a third of Burma will be Hind territory by the end of the year.
  • Netherlands: Gold is discovered in Transvaal and causes colonial expansion north west of Transvaal to start in order to find more gold deposits.

  • China finalizes its claims over all of the previously unclaimed Pacific islands. They send many ethnic Chinese to those islands, as well as to Alyeska, soon dominating over the natives.

  • German Empire Nothing of note happens in the first months of 1871.
  • Iberian Empire expands their colony in the South-western Africa by 20*50=1000sq.km and their main African country by 6000sq.km . They also begin improving infrastructure in Iberian Sahara. Iberians are still offering USA North Philliphines for north-western African colony belonging to USA.
  • The Kingdom of the Netherlands: The Dutch African colonies expand a lot more thanks to the expanding Dutch economy.
    • Dutch Diplomacy: What is this Danish map what the Swedish are on about for the partition of Africa? I haven't seen anything and the Dutch won't agree with it until we see it!
    • I (Chris) put it because of this post that was there in 1868.5, I think:
  1. "Sweden-Norway: The Swedish government establishes another protectorate on the only lands not colonized on the African coast. This one is declared Norway's colony."
  2. That was generally the only uncolonized portion and naturally I put it there. If I'm wrong I'll get rid of it.
I meant more so concerning if an agreement on how to divide all of Africa up had been made with out the consent of the Dutch VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 17:06, November 11, 2011 (UTC).
  • Empire of Brazil: The Brazilian people use their new general election to elect on the Brazilian Social Democratic Party, who promises to amend the constitution to benefit the masses. Passing new amendments that creates a direct election system based on popular vote and lowering the voting age to 18, even though only men could still vote.
  • Empire of Hind-Bharat: After spontanious attacks, most of the regiments and divisions fall to pincer tactics used by the Hinds which were taught by the Russians.

Railroads continue to be built, mainly in Indochina and the Afghan region.
  • Ethiopian Empire: The Ethiopian Empire begins moving towards Kenya's unconquered border with Sudan. The Kenyan culture is oppressed by the government, and new education programs are put in place to teach the people only the Ethiopian culture.

  • Chile: Federico Errázuriz Zañartu won the presidential election and assume as new President of the Republic.

The World in 1871 5
  • China: Stabilizes its control over the new Pacific territory which it has gained. They realize that Britain no longer controls Canada, so they cease to expand into the Yukon area, apologizing to the Canadians for the misunderstanding. However, many Chinese settlers illegally begin travelling into the mountains looking for gold, despite the colonial government attempting to stop them. This isn't the Qing government's first failure recently. The old Chinese whisper that the Mandate of Heaven may be slipping through their fingers...
  • Bulgaria: Begins a massive rebellion against the Muslim Ottomans throughout OTL Bulgaria and Macedonia that they have been planing for almost a decade.
  • Iberian Empire continues to expand to the south. Due to the lack of infrastructure, many Iberian soldiers and resistance fighters are fighting badly and dying.
  • Netherlands: The Dutch colonize the South Atlantic islands of Ascension, Sao Paulo, and the Tristan Da Cunha islands. The Cocos islands and Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean are also taken over by the Dutch. These small islands have small port towns built on them, to be used as coaling stops along the Dutch Sea Route to the East Indies and South African Dutch territories. This action not only improves the Dutch's naval power but it also improves the trade routes which boost the economy.
    • So still what is this Danish division of Africa? The Netherlands haven't agreed to any division of Africa... VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 17:24, November 11, 2011 (UTC).
    • You did mention a few turns back: "Never mind. I just did my researching and it turns out that place is actually the Sultanate of Zanzibar who split from Oman in 1856. So its not Oman when you invaded Sweden, you attacked Zanzibar so the Netherlands are fine with that! :D" So since you changed your mind now, you'll have to talk with the Swedish player about it.
    • No no, I'm fine with the Swedish colony after taking over Zanzibar and expanding, I mean more of a complete division of Africa. Like you've all agreed on how all of Africa will be split up between the colonial powers, VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 13:25, November 12, 2011 (UTC).'
    • No one's agreed to it (from what I read) except for Sweden-Norway, but my argument is still valid; we can't just assume colonies like that, especially when some colonies get less land than others. We'll have to continue our colonization until the nations meet up (and of course at a moderate rate.)
  • Empire of Hind-Bharat: The last resistance is crushed and Persia is now conquered. Hind Persia is incorporated into the Empire, with the Persian army being merged with the Hind forces.

As such, more railroad construction begins, helping further the industrialization of the nation.
  • Republic of Persia: Following its defeat and revolution, Persia begins holding free elections, whereby all landowning males can partake in voting for the elected Sultan. The elections are, however, a sham, and the elected men are merely figureheads for Russian rulers, who begin to modernize Persia. In addition, Persia would like to take out a sum of 10 million USD from any nation willing to be so charitable to jumpstart an oil drilling operation; in return, should the oil drilling bear fruit, the loaning nation would receive twice its investment in oil profits.
  • United Kingdom: The UK grows their colonies in Africa. Queen Victoria also thinks Parliament should begin speaking with other nations in Europe about Greece's future.
  • Japan: Builds more warships and annexes the rest of unclaimed Malay and the islands of Andaman and Nicobar to establish a foothold ihn the Indian Ocean.

  • China continues to be divided, due to the growing minority nationalism within all of its empire, for even the Chinese want to be totally Chinese and not forced to abide by Manchurian laws.

  • China currently is on the verge of having a civil war. The Nationalist groups among the minorities have seized vast quantities of territories, and the ethnic Chinese are angry at the Qing government for other reasons. However, the Qing are still in control for now, thanks to the military's support. Should the military turn against them, the dynasty would fall within a month.

  • Quan Confederation

    Map of the Quan confederation. This is not the same resolution as the Map, I will edit these borders onto the main map

    China: The Qing are defeated by General Quan's army, and exiled to one of the more remote Pacific islands. The Quan dynasty is established as the ruling dynasty in China, with Liu-Tao becoming China's emperor. Liu-Tao has China given massive restructuring, and breaks it into several sovereign nations united under his leadership: Zhonghua (China; ethnic Chinese and minorities whose nationalist movements did not unite with Quan) Bod (Tibet), Shinjang (Xinjiang), Mongolia, Manju (Manchuria), Ningxia, and Guangxi. These nations not only have Quan Liu-Tao as their Emperor, but also share a common army and foreign policy and currency. This new confederacy is named the Imperial Quan Confederacy.
  • Russian Empire: The Tsar is not happy with the regime change in China, but feels that in opposing it he would only make new enemies. Instead, he begrudgingly offers relations with General Quan, hoping to renegotiate their terms their alliance. In addition, work on the ironclads continues, relatively unabated.
    • IQC Diplomacy: Emperor Liu-Tao states that all alliances that the Qing had with foreign nations will be upheld by the Quan. He even forgives Japan for helping the Qing, and states that at least in IQC diplomacy, their alliance is the same as it was before.
    • Hind Diplomacy: The Maharani is please and would like to open up proper diplomatic channels as well as discuss railroad integration of Hind and Chinese railroads...
    • IQC Diplomacy: Once Emperor Liu-Tao is sure that there will be no more violence, he will extend railroads with his ally. However, the Himalayan mountains would be nearly impossible to build railroads in between. He urges the Hind to try to take Burma as fast as they can, so that they have an easier land route. The Confucian Buddhist Liu-Tao asks what is the state of Buddhists within the Hind-Barat Federation
    • Hind Diplomacy: Buddhists are treated fairly and have full rights as a citizen of the Federation. Buddhists can visit Buddhist shrines in China and visa versa. It is agreed that Burma will be the place for the link up of railroads, it should become Hind territory in around a year. The Chinese are invited to build traditional Buddhist temples in Hind-Bharat. The Maharani Laxmi Bhai asks how are Hindus, Muslims and other religions in the Imperial Quan Confederacy, as there seems to be perfect harmony between the peoples'
    • IQC Diplomacy: Emperor Liu-Tao is pleased that Buddhists are well treated in Hind-Barat. He states that there is freedom of religion in the confederacy. However, he is suspicious about organizations between temples, churches, mosques, etc. and seeks to have all places of worship be either independent and not affiliated with any others, or in one organization (aka, one association of Daoist Temples, one association of Buddhist temples, etc, and if they don't want to be part of the organization, then they are totally independent). There are many Muslims in the eastern parts of the confederacy, however, there are few Hindus, although the number has grown slightly recently. He asks if there is any Hindu organization that is strong in Hind-Bharat for the Hindu temples to join.
    • Hind Diplomacy: The main association of Hindu temples is a strong organization. The Maharani likes the idea and will do the same thing with Hindu and Buddhist temples and mosques.
  • Republic of Persia: Research on the internal combustion engine continues, as does oil drilling.

  • Empire of Hind-Bharat: Huge resources are put into upgrading the army as well as creating industry. Railroad construction continues in the state of Afghan and Persia. Hind-Bharat Expansion in Burma continues, with more land being colonized everyday. It is said it will take around 1.5 years more to completely colonize Burma. In light of news received by the Maharani about new war plans practiced by the Germans, Hind troops practice successful Russian tactics as well as incorporate the tactics used by the Germans into the war games. More weapons are ordered and the Maharani is pleased that the Russians are giving Hind-Bharat 50 ironclads. The researchers of the Maharani's royal court work on adding the cannons of the ironclads into a normal warship and adding the armor of the ironclad on the warship as well, effectively making the first battleship. The Maharani is impressed and order 50 of these new "battleships" to be constructed by the end of next year.

  • The Kingdom of the Netherlands: Our OTL French Polynesia is colonized as Dutch Polynesia.

1874.5

  • IQC: Emperor Liu-Tao has become worried. There are many Muslims and Christians in his nation, and they may have loyalty to other nations than the IQC, and different values than the traditional Chinese values. However, he doesn't want to totally destroy freedom of religion. Therefore, the Emperor makes an edict: no church or mosque is to be part of any organization, except for the official one. The official organizations are the United Mosques of Confucian Muslims and the Confucian Christian Church. These blend Confucian ideals into the theology of Islam and Christianity. Churches and mosques can remain independent from these organizations, but they can't join any new organizations, just a single independent church.
  • Iberian Empire extends more to the south and begins massive recruitment again, raising the army of ironclads, elite troops and others.
  • German Empire: Tensions that were suddenly sparked between Germany and France finally came to a head in late August, when a French army brigade shot upon peaceful protesters asking that Alsace-Lorraine join Germany. A series of notes exchanged between the two governments, and accusations that Berlin is behind the demonstrations, have resulted in Bismarck declaring war on France for the sake of national honor. German forces advance towards Strasbourg and Metz, encountering light opposition until reaching the mighty fortresses. However, the technology advanced and highly trained German troops finally manage to take the fortresses, at a moderate cost. However, French reinforcements had been brought up, holding the German forces deep inside French territory.
  • The Kingdom of the Netherlands: The Dutch condone France for attacking peaceful German protesters and sends Germany military aid. This angers the French however and the French bombard a small Belgium border village. The Dutch are outraged, and declare war on France as well and Dutch forces pour over the border to invade France and Lille is put under siege. As well as in France proper, the Dutch also attack French Guiana from Dutch Suriname; French Saint Marten is attacked from Dutch Sint Maarten; the Dutch navy also blockade and bombard Saint-Barthelemy, and the French Congo is also attacked.
  • Empire of Hind-Bharat: Resources are put into upgrading the army as well as creating industry have payed off, with the army becoming more up to date and the industry being able to produce cotton and war materials as well as make ships. Railroad construction nears completion in the state of Afghan and Persia. Hind-Bharat Expansion in Burma continues, with a huge drive to colonize as much land as possible to connect railroads with the Chinese. It is said it will take around 0.5 years more to completely colonize Burma and railroad construction in Burma is given priority, with around 2/3 of Burma Hind territory and bordering the Quan Confederacy. The construction of the battleships is well under way and should be completed on schedule. Some will be offered when they are complete to Hind-Bharat's allies. A campaign is started to sent Hind-Bharatis to Australia and South Africa as well as the West Indies to help in the construction of the colonies.
  • Quebec: Decide to build roads in the country.
  • Russian Empire: The Tsar is outraged that France could provoke such a peaceful nation such as Germany to war, and because the German Empire is a fellow member of the Grand Alliance, the Tsar will intervene. Work on the railroads stops, and work on the ironclads is heavily stymied, as the army is raised to a million men strong, placed in the hands of the Tsar's most capable generals, and sent to Germany to defeat the French menace. Secondly, with the number of Ironclads reaching about 190, the Tsar drafts enough men into the Russian Navy to utilize the ships, and they set sail from Persian ports, bound for French ports, hoping to starve the nation of any outside help. They will be passing through the Suez canal, and the Tsar states that either the ships will move through freely, or a war with the Ottomans will begin as well.
    • Hind Diplomacy: Troops are mobilized and the Tsar is asked whether he wants Hind troops to accompany the attack on France. The 300,000 Russians are redined with the rest of the Hind army.
    • Russian Diplomacy: The Tsar agrees to Hindi help on the issue, and allows them use Russian supply lines while in France.
  • Republic of Persia: Thus far work on the internal combustion engine prove fruitless. Russian ironclads are launched from Persian ports, though Persia itself is at this time neutral in the affair.

  • The United States of America: The USA increases troop levels in Africa to over 100,000, and due to the rapid advancements of troops and the failures of anyone to add to its colonies on the map, the colonies triple in size. Thee USA offers the Dutch a deal in which they will receive Liberia, 32 million World Dollars, and a naval base in Hawaii and Indonesia in return for the Dutch colony next to US Madagascar. The USA declares war on the Central American States and easily conquers them (I need an algorithm please), and they are annexed. The USA declares war on Peru and Ecuador and lands troops on their Pacific Coasts due to imperialistic motives and evidence of the current regimes brutalities against there populations. Hawaii joins the Union while the Indonesian Colony becomes a US state and joins the Union. I NEED AN ALGORITHM PLEASE
    • Please look at rule 8. You can't expand that much in less than half a year. I'll grow it a little larger than usual since you haven't had a turn in a little while but my point remains. Also, you can't determine if you've won the war with Central America, so you can't say you've annexed them all yet. I'll have to revert the map for now. ChrisL123
    • Yeah, the US has been really implausible this whole map game, really, but now its more ridiculous than ever
    • I think I created rule 8, :/ It works though!! :D 1 Imperium Guy
    • Can mods please take action to stop this implausibility, its not fair on the other players; VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 11:52, November 19, 2011 (UTC).
  • United Kingdom: The UK grows their colonies as always. The UK government prepares the military to deploy ships and men to help the Central American states and request that other countries do the same. The Queen mentions, "[the Central American states] didn't do anything to the United States, and the war doesn't seem to have a purpose. A military intervention is required, or else Central America will suffer the same fate as Mexico."
    • IQC Diplomacy: The Imperial Quan Confederacy will sell supplies to the UK or the Central American States, due to the IQC needing money.
    • Hind Diplomacy: As the U.K and the U.S.A are both allies of Hind-Bharat, Hind-Bharat declares neutrality in the war. A trade agreement is sought to help the IQC's economy as well as Hind-Bharat's.

  • German Empire: With help from her Allies Russia, the Netherlands and Hind-Bahrat, Germany plans a major attack to end the war, marching on the fortresses of Verdun and Sedan. The French Armies are devastated in battle, and are routed, and German troops advance quickly to Paris, laying siege to the capital. However, the French government refuses to negotiate, and since German forces are overstretched and exhausted, no attack on Paris itself is attempted.
    • German Diplomacy: Germany asks Russia if we can buy thirty six ironclads for coastal defense, and will offer brand new artillery and small weapon's that are just being designed in return.
  • Chile: The Husares de la Muerte squad eliminate the principal bases from the rebels groups in Mendoza, but a last group try to escape to Argentina.

The combat ends in stalemate, and eventually leads to the beginning of hostilities between both countries.
  • IQC: The Imperial Quan Confederacy builds up its military, and sends more aid to the anti-US forces. Meanwhile, the reorganization of Churches and Mosques has been successful everywhere except for Shinjang, due to the large amount of Mosques there.

Railroad construction is completed in the states of Afghan and Persia. Hind-Bharat Expansion in Burma comes to an end, with all of Burma now in firmly Hind-Bharati hands. Railroad connection with the Chinese is started. The construction of the battleships is well under way and should be completed on schedule. Some will be offered when they are complete to Hind-Bharat's allies. A campaign started to send Hind-Bharatis to Australia and South Africa as well as the West Indies to help in the construction of the colonies continues.
  • The Kingdom of the Netherlands: French Saint Marten falls to the larger Dutch forces, as does French Saint-Barthelemy. French Guiana is practically conquered, minus the colony's capital of Cayenne, and some of the east of the colony. Things in French Congo don't go as well as planned, but the Dutch still have the upper hand, if only a marginal advantage. More troops are sent to boost the attack on the French Congo. Whereas in France proper, the Dutch continue to slowly advance; Lille is taken but there is still tough French resistance. (I'll do the algorithm for Germany and Netherlands V.S France soon just to back this all up)
    • Iberian empire is also supporting you.
    • As in supporting or in the actual war? Regardless just the Dutch or Germans by themselves won against France, so it doesn't make too much difference to the algorithm.
  • The United States of America: The USA declares war on France in support of its Iberian Ally, and since troops levels in Africa are high to increase colonization, US troops invade southern French Algeria while other French colonies are simultaneously attacked by US forces and bombarded by the Navy. The colony near Liberia is easily conquered while the colony north of US Namibia is taken as well. The colony between the Dutch and Iberian colonies is also attacked, but tougher resistance forces US troops to battle it out for several months. None are annexed, but US troops begin to arrive quickly in the American African colonies to help in the war. Plans for the annexation of Quebec are approved by Congress and a plebiscite is set for next turn. The USA tells the UK to back or face war. The US African colonies will be given to countries who help the USA if war with Britain occurs and declare war on the UK, as the days of Britain's global empire is coming to an abrupt end, and that the UK is just a big bag of wind, stating that before the USA even dealt any damage, the UK gave up territory to the USA and begged for peace.

  • German Empire: Germany takes Alsace-Lorraine and other areas of Northern France including Verdun as compensation to the war. Colonies not taken over by the Netherlands (most notably Algeria) are also taken, appeasing the Colonialists in Germany.

  • Russian Empire: Due to the shortness of the war and the minimality of casualties, the Tsar decides to use the momentary State of War to declare war on the Ottoman Empire, after a samll Ottoman/Persian border town is attacked.

Possible Borders

  • United Kingdom: More interest is put forth in India and North America than in Africa, after Parliament realizes millions of dollars are being wasted. The money is instead put into amping up its Canadian military to prepare for any war. Also, the British Parliament creates a map of a possible North America to incorporate an independent Mexico (of course the government would be controlled by the US, CSA, UK and possibly China until the government can take hold again). They ask the opinions of other countries to see what they think of the map.
    • US Diplomacy: The USA will agree if British Colombia, and UK Minnesota are given to the USA and in exchange Quebec will become British and a UK protectorate. Central America should join an independent Mexico as well.

  • IQC: Emperor Liu-Tao continues to encourage immigration from Zhonghua to Alyeska and the Pacific Islands. His forces continue to attack the Ottoman Empire, focusing on the African and Arabian portions of the empire. The IQC continues to industrialize, especially in Zhonghua, Guangzhi, and Manju. However, they still keep traditional Chinese clothes and culture. Immigration of Chinese to the USA continues, with many travelling to California and US Mexico. The Emperor has a survey conducted in Alyeska, to find if the IQC citizens there would wish to join the US, but they sadly decline to join the US, so Alyeska will remain IQC. China offers to give the US 20 million worth of US dollars in return for the Indonesia colony of the US, and will be America's ally as well if they agree.
  • Japan: Annexes the rest of the unclaimed Philippines and begins to colonize New Caledonia. A small economic and industrial boom begins in the Japanese colonies.
    • Philippines belonged and belongs to Spain. Seeing as you have annexed it, I assume this is declaration of war against Iberian Empire? Doctor261 14:26, November 22, 2011 (UTC)
    • I didn't annex any of your territory just the southern part that had yet to been claimed I already controlled part of the islands. Anyway, it was unclaimed and I'm not at war with you.
    • Southern part or whatever, whole Philippines belonged to me. And I see it as invasion. Let it be.
    • No it didn't. Look at the map. At the beginning of the game Spain only had SOME of the Philippines. You decided not to colonize the rest, so you'll have to let Japan colonize the rest (because that was their turn.)
  • Empire of Hind-Bharat: The attack continues on the Ottomans, using the acclaimed pincer tactics of the Persian campaign. More battleships are constructed, with the ships getting into battle with Ottoman ships, and winning almost every time.

  • Iberian Empire: Following the japanese invasion of Philippines, Iberian Empire asks for their allies to help them and aid in an upcoming war.
    • At the morning of June 5th, 1877, Franco Hernandez, High King of Iberian Empire, issued Japan ultimatum, which is supposed to give back the southern Philippines and sum of $5'000'000.
      • IQC Diplomacy: The Imperial Quan Confederation urges the Iberians to reach a peace with Japan, but if it does come to war, the IQC will go to Japan's aid
      • Iberian response: "Can't you see what have they done? They invaded us. I gave them a good offer. Instead of starting a war where people would die, I decided to send them ultimatum. Do not join the people whose objective is to take over the world. Our goal is to maintain peace in our territories, and by japanese invasion of our boundairies, I see no other option that to worsen the relations with Japanese Empire."
      • I invaded no one it was unclamied territory im not tryin to take over the world but improve my nation look at the previous map i want peace.
  • US Diplomacy: 15,000 troops from US Indonesia are sent to help Iberia in its war with Japan while five ironclad steam frigates are sent to help as well. Now that British Colombia is American, 120,000 US troops are placed on the Alaskan border. Canada is offered an alliance which would give Canada northern Alaska while south Alaska goes to America
    • And the reason for randomly declaring war upon the Imperial Quan Confederation is...
  • Canada: 'Canada accepts the U.S alliance and allows U.S troops to pass through Canadian territory for the invasion of Alaska (You only got to 54" 40', I got the rest). Canadian troops mass on the Alaskan Border with the U.S troops in prep for the attack. Candian Colonist reach OTL Eastern Saudi Arabia and at the point they landed create New Ottawa, the capital of the new colony. More people are eager to stake claim in the new land and some decide to create a new colony in OTL Venuesala in June.
    • I must remind you that you are Canada with a lower than average economy and you are colonizing Saudi Arabia (which is a desert), so it will take a while to get a large colony.
    • I Know.
  • United Kingdom: The UK continues to help grow Canada's economy and military and offers assistance to help grow their Saudi Arabian colony, on the condition that the colony will be a Canadian colony as well as a part-British protectorate (so that Canada has more of the say in decisions made). Meanwhile, the British Caribbean islands officially join together into "United West Indies" in order to counterattack any invasion. They also grow their colonies a small amount, but not a lot.
    • Um, there mine, not yours and why would they join a place even farther away. Implausable (We are already losing land to U.S.A)
    • Well, to be perfectly frank with you Canada is still British since you haven't declared independence, and you haven't lost land, the UK has. I've wanted to join the Caribbean colonies for a while now in case of any American invasion and what better way to gain protection by joining with a land colony. It isn't implausible in the least. But if you really want Acadia I could give it back.
    • Oh, I need to declare independence ... Okay then. Thanks for Acadia. (Note: US and Canada are allies)
  • Canada Diplomacy: Agree to Saudi Arabian Part-British Protocate. Also, Canada declares Independence from Britain and continue good relations and still has the queen as it leader. Canada also offers Britain an alliance.
  • German Empire: Germany announces neutrality in all current conflicts, as a French partisan movement is starting to break out in occupied France, drawing all attention there.
  • Also, new map please?
  • Done.
  • Let me make this very clear. Japan invaded no one. They merely colonized a unclaimed piece of land that Spain obviously didn't want because they never made any move to colonize it. If you want to start an unnecessary war over that, go right ahead. I will fight and I will win.

1877.5

  • United States of America: Colonies are expanded due to the offers not being large enough. US Colonies are still up for sale. Add more later...
    • Canadian Diplomacy: Canada offers to buy the U.S colonies for $50 million dollers.
    • IQC Diplomacy: the IQC sends warning to Canada, stating that they too threatened Alyeska, but Canada was less of a threat than the US, so the IQC will not attack them. However, they demand that Canada stop the military buildup along the border with Alyeska.
    • Canadian Diplomacy: Canada offers to buy all of the U.S Colonies for $50 million in order to REPEAL A -16 POINTS IN THE WAR!
    • No, that will not repeal the -16 points in the war. Have you read the algorithm rules? It says nothing of the sort.
  • (NOW BEING PLAYED) Italy: A new Italian leader rises to power hoping to make Italy once again a powerful nation. The nation begins to build up and upgrade its military. Weapons and waships are being produced in factories. They also send diplomats to establish alliances with France and Spain. It also begins to build factories for economical purposes through cheap labor.
    • Iberian Empire accepts the alliance.
  • IQC: Due to the USA and Canada preparing to invade Alyeska, the IQC launches an attack against the United States of America. It calls upon its allies of Japan, Hind-Barat, and Russia to aid it in defending the Chinese that live in Alyeska, and asks that anyone who opposes the reckless expansion of the United States (or wishes to take American territory) aid the IQC in the war as well. The IQC fleet attacks American Indonesia and the other colonies of the USA, and land forces begin to arrive at the Alyeskan border, preparing to fight back any US troops that cross over into IQC territory. Emperor Liu-Tao apoligizes to his allies, but states that defending native Chinese is more important than defeating the Ottomans, so his forces fighting the Ottomans begin sailing to assail the US from the east. He states that if they defeat the US and the Ottoman war continues, the IQC will come to the fight once more.
    • We're just massing troops on the border and drawing up plans to split it if we want...
    • Well, the IQC was threatened and will respond with war. It's time to teach the US a lesson about its crazed expansion and daring to consider attacking the Quan Empire.
    • US DOES NOT BORDER ALASKA, YOU ARE PILING TROOPS ON MY BORDER!!!!!!
    • You said that you were building up troops on the border with Alyeska, and that you would let the US go through that border to attack Alyeska. I posted that I had forces massing on the border in case the US or Canada sent any troops to attack. No IQC forces crossed over into Canada
  • Iberian Empire: Iberian Empire begins to send their troops to Middle Philippines to prepare for a counterattack against Japan. They ask for USA, Canada, Italy, Hind-Bharat, Kingdom of the Netherlands, Russian Empire, Sweden-Norway, Quebec, Brazil, China, Ethiopia to declare war on Japan and bring the justice. Franco states: "Dear allies, people of the World. My people were killed in Philippines. Many got killed. By japanese scumbags. I ask you all, to help me take back what belongs to me, and erase Japan from the world for their wishes to take over the Earth. Philippines was and is a peaceful set of islands. And it will. WE will fight for Philippines. And once again, I ask you for help."
    • IQC Diplomacy: Emperor Liu-Tao remarks that Franco needs to reexamine the facts. Japan did not attack any Iberian colony in the Philippines, and it simply colonized an unclaimed island. The islands are still peaceful, and the only one who would break the peace is the Iberian Empire. He suggests that Iberia offer to buy the Japanese colony before starting a massive war to take it.
    • Iberia shows ICQ the maps made five years ago, showing that the island which is now Japanese was an Iberian island. Even the infrastructure plans are drawn there.
    • Hind Diplomacy: Although they are on good terms with most countries of the world, Hind-Bharat cannot deny that the Japanese colonized Iberian claimed lands. They wish that the war is stopped with the Japanese keeping the territories they had prior to the war and same with the Iberian Empire.
    • Russian Diplomacy: The Tsar would love to help his ally China and hurt his enemy Iberia, but due to pressing issues with the war with the Ottoman Empire still going on, focus cannot be shifted away from the Middle East.
    • IQC Diplomacy: Emperor Liu-Tao states that it appears that the colonization of that island was so recent, that Japan did not know it had occurred. He states that there is no evidence that anyone was killed, and there is no way that anything was build there or any large amounts of settlers had arrived in so short a time. He states that it would be foolish to destroy the peace over such a small mix-up. A similar incident occurred recently, with the IQC thinking that a part of Canada had been bought and moving people in. However, no one was harmed and the Chinese settlers simply returned to Alyeska or stayed as Canadians. He states that the IQC is about to gain massive territories from the United States of America due to their many victories in the war, and that if Iberia does not attack Japan, then they will give Iberia vast amounts of land.
  • Japan: Agrees to sell the part of the Philippines that all this is about but states that they did nothing wrong and will retain control of the part of the Philippines they controlled before the expansion. Why didn't you say anything when I established the first outpost in the area so it wouldn't go his far. Japan attempts to diffuse the situation in Alyeska.
    • IQC Diplomacy: It is too late to diffuse the situation in Alyeska, for the IQC has already launched a massive attack on the USA.
    • Iberian Diplomacy: "We peacefully offer you $500,000 for the colony of South Philippines."
  • Chile: The Argentine government has surrendered before the Chilean troops led by the General Justo Arteaga, after the Battle of La Plata. Despite some ultra-nationalist sectots in Chile propose the total annexation of Argentina, the majority of the Chilean government doesn't support this idea. The terms of peace establish that Chile gains the rest of Argentine territories, except for the provinces of Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, Entre Rios, Corrientes, Misiones and La Pampa.
  • Canada: Canada keeps troops on Alaskan border but the mission changes to defend. Canada improves its military and its economy continues to grow. Before this become a war over the whole world, Canada invites degnitaries from China, U.S, Iberia, and Japan to the now growing colony of Arabian Canada, which has expanded and the coast is now being farmed (NOT DESERT), Capital of New Ottawa to find an end to this war. Canadas offer for U.S colonies is still up for $50 million. Meanwhile, Canadian troops are also moved to the Pacific Northwest to protect against any attack from China but not to attack.
    • How do they convert desert to farmland?
    • The Coast is not desert, it accually is good farmland.
  • United Kingdom: Being an ally of the IQC, Canada and the US, the British Parliament declares they will be neutral in war but will offer ammunition to the IQC to defend their only colony. The UK grows their colonies. Also, the UK offers the United States $7 million for North-West Africa, the one south of Morocco. (Also, I doubt that Canada, a newly formed country, can afford 50 million dollars without destroying their economy. Just saying.)
    • Today that is just one billion dollars with inflation.
  • Empire of Hind-Bharat: The attack continues on the Ottomans, using the acclaimed pincer tactics of the Persian campaign. More battleships are constructed. The process of the missionaries in Burma continues with great success, with the locals believing what is said. Railroad construction continues but at a slower rate as battleships are continuously given priority. The attack on Austro-Hungarian Vietnam is finished with a mojor victory for the Hind army. The troops stablize the region and a small percentage is kept as a peacekeeping force. The rest are sent to help Hind troops in the battle against the Ottomans.
