China conquers most of Thailand, leaving only the peninsular area left. China also begins to develop Tibet before its unification with China by providing it necessities, and developing the region. China hopes this improves Tibetan-Chinese relationships. They also begin building a highway system to Tibet, yet its steep terrain forces architects to figure out a good method.

He turns the Straits of Gibraltar into a minefield (as in naval mines), and declares unrestricted U-boat warfare in the Mediterranean and Atlantic.

Hitler tells the world, that the Italians WILL sort out their own problems, without international help.
    • United States: The US accepts Germany's apology and no retribution will be taken. But they are to deep to stop interfering, plus Romania attacked the US so a response was needed

    • (I thought we weren't having that China being involved with Europe stuff? Mods intervene please; VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 11:10, December 9, 2011 (UTC).)
    • Sorted. But why would you intervene with Asian stuff then? Doctor261 (Talk to Doctor261) 12:52, December 9, 2011 (UTC)
    • That was in case you didn't over rule China's actions. I was doing the same to China what China was doing to Germany. Its nullified now :P VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 16:44, December 9, 2011 (UTC)
  • USSR: In his paranoia, Stalin issues a second purging but the generals will have none of it, with the generals getting the better of him and murdering him. General Zhukov takes command and reforms the communist government. He makes himself Premier and allows other types of communist parties to form, mainly the Leninist Party of the Soviet Union, the Marxist Party of the Soviet Union as well as the already functioning Communist Party of the Soviet Union. The chosen leader from these parties through elections will become the General-Secretary of the Soviet Union. The Premier will not be elected for and will be chosen by Zhukov himself to succeed him. Zhukov orders the production of T-34/85's to speed up (secretly, no one in the Pact of Steel knows about this, remember?) and mass conscription is begun. A pool for Generals is made to improve the skills of the leaders of the army.
    • I'm honored that you would use the idea that I did in AvAr. Azecreth 14:56, December 9, 2011 (UTC)
    • You being sarcastic or serious? ;) I remember you killed off Stalin and replaced him with Zhukov and another General although I'm not really sure if you allowed other communist parties to be elected. :D 1 Imperium Guy 17:08, December 9, 2011 (UTC)

The Military is put into high alert and troops moved in to crush the rebels.

CIA operatives are moved in to find the rebel camps and terminate the leaders.
    • Romanian Response: It accepts USA peace agreement.
    • United States: The US is glad Romania accepts and pulls troops, ships and planes out and stop attacking Romanian land, ships and planes.
  • The Third Reich: Hitler blames the intervening nations like the USA for supplying South Italy as why North Italy lost. A lot of Italian fascists are in the Reich now, under German protection. The Italian fascist ex-pats set up the Italian National Socialist Party with German help, and this party sets about planning with the German Nazi party on how to take power in Italy legitimately like Hitler's Nazis in Germany. The V2 rocket is also created, it is bigger than the V1 and as a result has a higher payload of destruction & further range. Most of the rocket bases across the Reich are stocked with V2 rockets now, but the older V1's remain to be used as well, as they are still useful.

Romania ask for Military Tech in exchange for Blueprints Lethal Gas Technology.
    • German Diplomacy: The Reich offers Romania rocket tech, for its lethal gas tech, as this would greatly help the Wunderwaffe programme. Germany however tells the Romanians to keep this lethal gas tech secret, and only to be discussed with other Pact of Steel member states.
  • China: China's new president declares temporary neutrality due to domestic reasons. They begin to make educational reforms that allow benefits to students and teachers who do well, put public funding to all schools (including new ones) and make public schooling free and available for everyone. They also begin to build diesel warehouses, where used cooking oil comes to be converted to fuel to cut energy and fuel costs of the country. The military is given the latest weapons. Economic and humanitarian aid to Tibet continues to flourish. It continues research on new technologies, new medicines, space program, and plastic.
  • Great Britain: Great Britain begins researching on a rocket that is able to go into the atmosphere, break up, and return the capsule back to Earth.
  • Brazil: Both factions have finally finished rebuilding after a lasting civil war. Living conditions improve as a wave of mutual hatred is spreading between north and south. the North works on a grater nuclear bomb as the south contemplates and tries to regain ties. However, the South manages to create a rocket capable of flying one mile into the sky, a feat the north still hasn't managed to accomplish. The Socialist Republic of Brazil finally decide on a flag

These events cause the German military machine to amp up, as it allows the Reich to attack far away enemies.
  • No nuclear ICBM's yet. USA's thing is allowed because they are making designs and haven't built anything yet, I assume. Azecreth 15:04, December 12, 2011 (UTC)
    • Why not? I have nuclear bombs, V2 rockets, & I have some V2 rockets armed with chemical gas; a nuclear warhead is hardly a huge technological leap. Besides I could always just drop a nuclear bomb anywhere via aircraft carriers & bomber planes. I don't see how not allowing this, will make a difference? VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 23:55, December 12, 2011 (UTC)
    • Because the V2 can only hold a 980 kg warhead. Little Boy was 4,400 kg. So unless you have a REALLY compact warhead, which would be beyond the tech level of the time, you aren't fitting a nuke on it. Azecreth 14:53, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
    • OK then. But you could of just changed my post to developing a nuclear warhead, rather than just deleting it altogether :P VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 17:06, December 13, 2011 (UTC)

The Volkswagen plan is also put into practice and the German people are offered cheap, affordable Volkswagen cars. This causes the number of drivers in Germany to dramatically increase. Driving tests for drivers are also brought in, and driving licenses are needed legally for all drivers.
