Axis vs Allies R-word is the sixth and latest installment is the latest AvA game to date! It will have new rules for old time's sake. We respect the almighty Pita and his almighty legacy in this game, so no one shall have Korea! Except Japan!

The year is 1933. Hitler has just taken power in Germany. The world is still in a depression. Unemployment is high. Choose a nation, and command it to success and glory. Will your nation become a superpower? Or will it be crushed? Make no mistake; war is coming ... with all its glory ... and all its horror.

It is never too late to join, as Pita would say.

GUYS. MAKE YOUR OWN ALGOS; THE MODS WILL FIX THEM UP LATER.

Rules

  1. We are going to limit the nations count to one because when a person gets two countries, they usually neglect one of them.
  2. The Golden Rule: Treat others as you want to be treated ... IS NOT IT! But you must be plausible.
  3. Nuclear programs may start in 1940. The mods will decide who finishes through the chance algorithm and then common sense (which is not so common).
  4. One half year per day.
  5. We will have resolutions/stuff when the UN is created.
  6. For now, Scraw is the mapmaker.
  7. New turns start at 22:00:00 UTC or 5:00 EST.
  8. Game is archived every 15 years.
  9. A new image file is created for every new map, which is created every two years.
  10. After a nation has been inactive for two years, Plausibility Points will be taken away. After five years, the user will be removed from the game.
  11. You may create proxies and use them in turns.

Mod Rules

  1. The number of mods is set and the mods are handpicked for their reputation as sane and plausible map gamers.
  2. In the case that a mod leaves, the other mods will pick a replacement.
  3. Mods must be plausible in their mod events and must not target any particular nation.
  4. Carving large empires is NOT a cause for mod targeting, unless it is implausible.
  5. Mods are moderated by me, Scraw (Pita's name actually belongs here).
  6. Mods can make up their own fancy title!

Vassal Rules

  1. You can not make stupid vassals. This means that if you are France, you can not make a puny vassal to help in an algorithm.
  2. No carving vassals from your main nation, unless it is a location of great dispute (ex: Catalonia from Spain is OK).
  3. Main nations can declare war on a nation that border a vassal.

Organization Rules

  1. Anyone can create a terrorist organization, but anyone who is less than a primary power can not use terrorism to destroy heads of government or state, or to blow up seats of government.
  2. Organizations are not allowed in algorithms (The US player can not use the KKK when invading Canada).

Mods

Heads up to all players working on nuclear power: you are working on fission not fusion. Fusion has not been accomplished after decades of research OTL and would require certain elements that are extremely hard to obtain on Earth. All posts with "fusion" will be crossed and/or replaced with fission. -Feud

Feud, fission nuclear power is the only type of civil research, correct - but we can have fusion nuclear weapons which were developed in the 1950s.  Nkbeeching (talk) 00:38, December 27, 2013 (UTC)

Thermonuclear and fusion are totally different. I was thinking pure fusion weapons. Please be specific so we don't get anything confused.

The German population of certain areas they hold in Africa and some areas considered colonies, has increased to a level in which it will be hard to remove them. However, the economic efficiency of these areas is quite notable.

The US Industry ties with Germany in terms of meaningful output followed by Britain. France remains lagging behind as it rebuilds still. The Japanese and Brazilians are widely to have considered to have entered the top tier of economies as well.

The Cubans begin their own wave of nationalism fueled by unknown background members. However, a serious pro-Hispanic sentiment has taken hold.

Please, no.

This is set up for the OTL Cuban revolution ... stuff started OTL because of foreign investment and ownership.

The RSS now has the dominant position in India with the possibility of their government becoming the recognized or legitimate government of India. 

Shit, forgot about this very important event ...

As per the treaty that ended the European War, the first phase of decolonization begins. France and Belgium begin to withdraw from colonies. Belgium has spent the last few years preparing its colonies for independence, whereas France has been focusing more on rebuilding and countering German influence. As such, France's former colonies are more likely to devolve into civil wars and violence. Current borders are to be respected.

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • Japan: All programs are continued and pushed forward. Civil nuclear energy is close to being established though it will take a few more years to finish. Meanwhile, research into fusion nuclear reactions is also pushed forward with the intention of creating a stronger nuclear weapon. Repression in China and Korea continue as the government calls for rebels to surrender before negotiations can begin. Development of a bullet train is planned based on research. However, this will take many years to see through to the end. Development in robotics and electronics and other areas begin (basic robotics did exist, look it up.)
    • Manchukuo: Manchukuo continues to grow economically as oil exports grow, and heavy industry expands. Troops are deployed to China to help hold down the region.
    • Indonesia: Economic development continues as the country begins to diversify the economy into areas other then resource exploitation.
    • Vietnam: Tensions continue to rise.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Brazil: Brazil's attempt at eradicating the major slums/favelas of its country are largely successful with nearly 89% of the favelas being plowed under and overhauled as affordable housing. The huge job opportunities in the interior towns and cities and ease of getting things has managed to allow for this clear out as it has created a job equilibrium which has allowed for a much better standard of life, Some welfare programs are passed out to the remainder of the peoples still residing in the favelas. However, with most of them eradicated, the president declares the unsung war against the public issues of poverty and the undeveloped areas of cities in the favelas is over. With the end of this and funding being freed up for other social projects, the government turns its investment into the South American infrastructure plan, in which international plans between Brazil and its economic allies will centralize their economies, infrastructure and some emergency services to be cross-border capable. With re-investment the government is able to sublease many contracts out to companies progressing their growth. The military also manages to expand its arsenal of nuclear weapons widely. With nearly 50 being manufactured of varying sizes, one has a developing program around it in which it could be mounted inside or on the tip of a rocket. However, other designs for more efficient usage are required to be developed. The Brazilian military continues to work with radar and guidance coming out with a prototype air-to-air missile. It fails but further refinement is expected to yield good results. With the FIFA World Cup coming around, the Brazilian contractors put their finishing touches on all the stadiums and prepare the other minor details for the tournament. The Brazilian investment in Bolivia - as well as their secret funding of the Federal Party - has led to high ranking business owners and influential legislators being elected into power, and the businesses able to throw more positive media at their workers. On the lower levels, the Federal Party, appealing to the lowest classes and to some of the upper classes which are profiting from it, becomes increasingly popular making its first successful election campaign in Bolivia. Brazilian arms manufacturers finish their special forces variant of the ENG-14. The Brazilian military research develops the EH-21 and the EH-31 - a medium, and heavy tank respectively - which are modernized and expected to be fielded alongside the EH-2 Serpente tanks. The Brazilian air force continues development as its jet aircraft are proven to be extremely effective, but lacking in fuel efficiency - like many jets of the time. With Peru unexpectedly switching to an Axis stance, Brazil organizes a possible referendum on including them into the SADC. The Brazilian nuclear fission power program continues as before with expected first reactor to be operation by 1953 or 1954. The population of Brazil reaches about 56.7 million and is growing.
    • Argentina: Argentina continues its close and intensive work on its economy and Infrastructure using one to help expand the other in an expanding game. Argentina's population grows to about 20 million and growing rapidly. Railways and highways between Argentina continue to connect more thoroughly with Brazilian infrastructure through Uruguay which has begun expansion of its own infrastructure. However, the Argentinians abstaining from huge detrimental expenditures and the end of the infamous changing of powers just years before has begun to gather large amounts of popular support from the regime looking to increase the public support more than it already is. With Argentina's invasion mostly complete around 150,000 troops remain in the country to allow for a peaceful transition to a more friendly government. Surprised by Paraguay's quick and relatively low casualty capitulation, Argentina calculates the deaths to be only about 50,000 and the Argentinian government agrees to pay reparations to the families of the dead and help in rebuilding the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion and the damaged countryside. Argentina begins to invest heavily in Cuban agriculture and cash crops specifically offering to pay preferential prices for Cuban goods. Argentina also begins investments into Bolivian media, and political causes attempting to gain access to influential Bolivian politicians, media outlets and markets. Argentina invites various Bolivian politicians to Argentina to view soccer matches and begin talking about increased military and economic co-operation. Argentina begins to work on poverty and the income inequality in the country bringing some notable economists and businessmen into a congressional meeting to talk about how Income for poorer people can be raised a normal amount to account for inflation and other changes. The meeting is largely successful as the world seeing less poverty will show the true successes of its nation and its business relations with Brazil
    • Venezuela: Venezuelan army continues to guard the oil industry and its platforms with heavy arms declaring them off limits except for working personnel. The oil industry now being much more powerful and well expanded throughout the country begins to show a positive economic growth with the oil money flooding back to the country being used to help build up and centralize Infrastructure with Brazil. The economic growth reaches a moderate 4.3% growth with growth expected to expand even more the next year. With trade being opened up with the US through Brazil, the Venezuelan oil companies getting high profits are able to push through and begin expanding oil infrastructure for a much more international presence and market. The Venezuelan population grows to about 4.1 million with families opting to have more than two children. This does in fact begin a recovery from the previous civil war. Support for the government and the economic prosperity being achieved is more widely known and while just barely over 57% it is growing. The Venezuelan military begins to purchase small amounts of equipment from Brazil once again. Venezuela begins using some of its oil money to help repair more damage from the civil war and builds up its cities working on poverty.
    • Uruguay: Uruguay's economy continues to increase now by a larger amount as infrastructure increases international traffic through the country in which various men have seen business and more investment opportunity in the country which begins to show a noticeable increase in the economy, as well as a noticeable drop in unemployment. The Uruguayan agricultural, manufacturing and banking sectors all increase moderately with banking becoming more lucrative as Uruguay opens up new high rise banks and large department stores in its capital as a showcase to the rest of the country what's to come. Uruguay, not needing to focus on its military, (while still lightly built upon and upgraded) begins fighting poverty in the country beginning to buy up many of the poverty-stricken areas and beginning a program that helps find people in poor neighborhoods find work, and be moved into new apartment buildings that are much nicer than their previous dwellings.
    • Paraguay: Paraguayan infrastructure begins to be linked up with surrounding nations' infrastructure for centralization purposes allowing for a much easier time of working on agriculture and resources as well as trade. The Paraguayan government begins to encourage large families - even offering modest subsidies to families who agree to have more than three children. The Paraguayan economy begins its own modest expansion at a healthy growth rate of about 3.5% and growing thanks to increasing trade and now the access to ports among other things to get Paraguayan goods. The government begins seeing opportunities to bring Paraguay back to its former status begins using its inclusion into the Brazilian sphere to get large economic expansion rights as well as foreign (mostly Argentinian and Brazilian) technicians in helping expand the communications infrastructure as well economic infrastructure. Paraguay officially begins to repair relations with Bolivia looking to help include Bolivia more and have them be less of outsiders, Paraguayan envoys meet with various Bolivian politicians and attend sporting events with them attempting to establish a much more personal relationship with Bolivian politicians.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Brazilian population in the Guyanas begins to grow lightly and the European populations remaining are treated relatively well. Brazil does manage to create large numbers of jobs in the area. The Confederation begins to expand its light industry and agriculture. Gold and diamond mining in the area begins to expand as well. A light police and military force is created at the discretion of Brazil. Natives of both Guyanas both agree that they will refuse outright to be annexed properly into Brazil, and if possible with the attempt to Include Suriname they well centralize the Guyanas into its only, "Little Europe" nation. The governments of both Guyanas do, however, agree that if offered equal status as part of a larger Federation they would in fact join for the prosperity and opportunity it would provide. The Confederation begins to work on differences between themselves and begins to secure major inroads in the barriers between the two.
  • ​So the game didn't stop? Damn it, Now I have to post a catch up turn. Dominion of India: With Congress only controlling northern lands, and the Deccan troops now in full retreat, the RSS and Bengal are both in strong positions. The RSS is working hard on a secret aircraft and they plan to unveil it soon, at a crucial period. Sen has his scientists working on heavier bombers and his Zeros are becoming slightly heavier and they are now equipped with 20mm guns which tear apart opposing aircraft. The Zero is now a very dangerous aircraft, able to show its maneuverability at high altitudes, too, now. Famine is still evident in large sections of the nation but food production begins to increase. Both the RSS and Bengal can afford to send troops to rural areas to calm the situation and ensure crop growing begins in a safe manner. 
  • Norway: We upgrade our military just in case we have to go to war with Britain. We give the Germans 150,000 troops to help invade Britain. A British military battleship enters our waters. The king feels that something bad is going to happen. Our special ops troops sneak onto the ship and blow it up from the inside. 
  • Switzerland: We perform another census, and look into updating our artillery, and mass producing our helicopter design. We continue to work on infrastructure, and the government looks at potentially building up troop numbers to 400,000 active; 200,000 reserve; and 1,400,000 militia members. We begin to design an armored personnel carrier. Our Lakes Flotilla launches the first Swiss ocean-going ship, from a Greek port. It is the ATS Recovery. It is lightly armed with defensive weapons, and has a helicopter platform. It carries dry and wet stores, and can launch boats from a partially submerged launch ramp in the back, or from the side. It has two HFA C-50's on board, a heavy lift helicopter. The ship is a humanitarian ship, with a 500 bed hospital (200 intermediate care, 100 intensive care, 50 recovery, 25 light care, and 25 limited care), an operating theater, morgue, radiology department, and a large receiving area that can be used as an emergency operating theater to house an influx of injured, dry and wet cargo hold for supplies up to eight months, housing for the 250 crew and medical personnel, housing for 500 refugees, and fuel for six months. The ship is marked as a Red Cross ship, but is lightly armed with two 20 mm Oerlikon autocannons, four .50 caliber machine guns, and some assorted small arms.
    • (OOC: Sorry I haven't been around. I have been busy for several days)
  • The USSR expands military and industry. Research continues into stealth weaponry. More stealth submarines are built. Construction on a nuclear reactor in Obninsk begins with the intent of using nuclear energy to power a power grid. Also, research into a safe ballistic missile submarine begins. The space program continues under Sergei Korolyev and the Sputnik program continues to go strong into its third year. More nuclear weapons are built. The research into H-bombs continues.
  • United States: Another series of rockets is launched from the West Coast: both of which strike off the coast of Hawaii, an improvement considering one landed off the coast of California last year. The United States federal government orders the creation of a space program to put a satellite into space. (I know it's probably too early, but I won't do anything drastic - like having a satellite launched into space by 1952 - until the Soviet Union and/or Germany launch a satellite). Meanwhile, Boeing begins to manufacture the B-52 Stratofortress (early models, nothing like the modern ones) in Washington State, with the hopes of having ten done by the end of 1951. The nuclear arsenal is expanded to nine, while the research continues on a new type of nuclear weapon and nuclear reactors continue. The Strategic Forces Command (SFC) is established by President Eisenhower, who places transfers control of the nuclear arsenal from the United States Air Force to a separate military branch of government. The research into stealth technology, anti-air and anti-ship missiles continues, with hopes of having a prototype of the missiles by the end of 1951. The production of AR-1 and AR-2 assault rifles continues, with 30% of the armed forces outfitted with such weapons - mainly the special forces units of the United States Army and Navy. In relation to the outfitting of troops with equipment, approximately 70% of all military personnel in the United States have body armor to protect them from small arms fire (such as pistols) and shrapnel. General Dynamics continues to produce armored personnel carriers, while they also continue to develop a new main battle tank that would have modern technology (advanced radios, rockets, etc.) Domestically, the construction of the Trans-Continental Electric Railroad System (TCERS) remains on schedule, with the first electric rail line connecting Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia is a success. Meanwhile, the Department of Transportation begins looking into monorails to interconnect major cities, such as Philadelphia to New York or Los Angeles to San Diego. Due to the increase in manufacturing, color televisions are now in the households of the rich, the upper middle class and the medium middle class, with the low middle class and the poor class continue to use radios and/or black and white television. In recent news, President Eisenhower passes the Desegregation Act of 1950 (Tell me what you think, too soon) which orders the desegregation of all schools in the United States, including the southern United States. In order to have the law enforced, President Eisenhower deploys General Patton's Third Army into the southern United States with the troops being ordered to enforce the desegregation of schools. Reconstruction efforts in the Northeastern United States begin, while the first 500 mile NASCAR race begins to attract the interests of the younger generation. In terms of economic production, Hollywood remains the Entertainment Capital of the World, while Walt Disney begins to design an amusement park in Anaheim, California. Internationally, the United States continues to invest in Cuba, with American corporations buying the stocks of company, industrial plants and agricultural plantations. Due to the "radicalism" of Fidel Castro, the military at Guantanamo Bay is beefed up with the arrival of the aircraft carrier USS Franklin D. Roosevelt and the battleship New Jersey. The Sonora Territory becomes the fifty-first state, which would allow President Eisenhower to gain more votes to win the next presidential election. Meanwhile, the Baja Peninsula is fully integrated into the state of California. Meanwhile, the United States Congress authorizes Texas to annex the Rio Grande Territory, under the condition that public schools in the former territory would remain desegregated and that all Hispanic-Americans living in the former territory have their rights protected under the Constitution of the United States. Meanwhile, the computer program in St. Louis, Missouri continues, with hopes having another test run to see if the computer could actually run information occurring in 1952. In the puppet state of Mexico, President Gutierrez continues to improve the infrastructure of the country, with all major cities in Mexico linked to the Trans-Continental Highway System. Meanwhile, American companies continue to dominate the Mexican economy, while the North American Labor Agency is created between the United States and Mexico, which requires that all workers in both countries have decent working conditions, a decent pay for their work, and appropriate hours to allow the workers to achieve sleep. In Cambodia, the same continues, with infrastructure improvement and economic development, as well as removal of anti-American operations in the jungle continues. (Cross out what is implausible, or tell me ways to improve it to make it plausible).
  • Germany: As the war games come to a close, production of military goods and vehicles continue to replace anything lost in the games. Landing craft and ships continue to be produced. Ruhrstahl missiles continue to be added to the jet aircraft of the Luftwaffe, and by now all planes are equipped with both anti-ship missiles and air-to-air missiles. Experiments with the A5 and A6 rockets continue with ranges increasing with each modification. Production of nuclear bombs continues, bringing the current arsenal up to15 warheads in total. Research into nuclear fusion and nuclear energy continues, as well as the miniaturization of warheads so they can be put on missiles. Vassals continue to produce military goods and train their troops.

1950.5

The FIFA World Cup ends with a Uruguayan victory over Brazil in the World Cup 2-1. First with Uruguay, second with Brazil and third with Argentina are shown to be the top teams in the world for soccer.

The Cuban, Fidel Castro gets involved in radical left and right groups throughout the northern portions of South America in the wilderness of Colombia and Venezeula. 

An earthquake occurs in Assam India at the site of a pitched conflict killing nearly 4000 people and causing large river disturbances.

The first 500 mile NASCAR race takes place in the United States.

A huge winter storm rocks the Northeastern United States with reported 30 to 50 inches of snow stalling out most travel through the area.

Soccer officially becomes the most profitable sport in South America with teams intercompeting regularly and it becoming some of the first signs of a standardized South American culture.

French forces begin to withdraw from its colonies worldwide. Established government systems are present in some new countries like Morocco or Madagascar, but in other colonies they are not, leading to bloody warfare and violence as strongmen gain power. Bloody warfare breaks out in Algeria, which the French government insists is part of France proper, something that the native Algerians disagree with.

Axis troops are stationed in Spanish Africa to protect against possible Moroccan aggression.

  • Brazil: With the favelas being largely eradicated and depopulated, the standard of living in Brazil has increased dramatically as has a living wage. The Brazilian election ends up with the re-election of Ramos, and Getulio Vargas being appointed to a supporting position for old times sake. The middle class of Brazil now with larger job opportunities continues to grow now outpacing the lower classes by the millions. The Brazilian government even makes good on payments promised to soldier's families years and years ago which allows some families to accend to middle class and afford colleges among other anemities. The Brazilian nuclear weapons program has expanded as well with multiple warheads in operation around the country as well as redundant warheads. The miniaturization of the warheads continues as well and the possibility of creating a thermonuclear weapon is considered and looked into. The Brazilian helicopter research now with multiple civilian and military variants has taken off into an industry of its own with helicopters being sold across the entirety of South America for multiple civilian purposes and less advertised military means. The military looks into creating an attack helicopter as well. The Brazilian investment in Bolivia - as well as their secret funding of the Federal Party - has led to high ranking business owners and influential legislators being elected into power, and the businesses able to throw more positive media at their workers. On the lower levels, the Federal Party, appealing to the lowest classes and to some of the upper classes which are profiting from it, becomes increasingly popular making its second successful election campaign in Bolivia.  The tanks manufactured previously continue to be fielded and more tactics for tank warfare are implemented. Jet aircraft continue to be updated as are naval-only aircraft being developed and produced. Brazil, seeing the terrorist attack in Bolivia, uses its local influence and vast monetary resources to begin an official inquiry into the attack not blaming anyone for the attack yet essentially renegging Peruvian claims that Chile carried out the attack. We also manage to get Bolivia to hold back their fury for the time being. Brazilian forces begin to mobilize and open up bases to allow for Allied troops, Troops are also positioned on the Peruvian-Bolivian border with Bolivian troops. This equates to nearly 300,000 troops.
    • Argentina: Continues its close and intensive work on its economy and infrastructure using one to help expand the other in an expanding game. Argentina's population grows to about 20 million and growing rapidly. Railways and highways between Argentina continue to connect more thoroughly with Brazilian infrastructure through Uruguay which has begun expansion of its own infrastructure. However, the Argentinians abstaining from huge detrimental expenditures and the end of the infamous changing of powers just years before has begun to gather large amounts of popular support from the regime looking to increase the public support more than it already is. Argentina begins to invest heavily in Cuban agriculture and cash crops specifically offering to pay preferential prices for Cuban goods. Argentina also begins investments into Bolivian media, and political causes attempting to gain access to influential Bolivian politicians, media outlets and markets. Argentina invites various Bolivian politicians to Argentina to view soccer matches and begin talking about increased military and economic co-operation. The co-operation between Argentina and its surrounding nations continue to expand with close association between Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil happening and Venezuela continuing to integrate toward the closely tied economies. 150,000 Argentinian troops are moved into Brazil to mobilize on the border with Peru with its allies.
    • Venezuela: Venezuelan army continues to guard the oil industry and its platforms with heavy arms declaring them off limits except for working personnel. The oil industry now being much more powerful and well expanded throughout the country begins to show a positive economic growth with the oil money flooding back to the country being used to help build up and centralize Infrastructure with Brazil. The economic growth reaches a moderate 4.3% growth with growth expected to expand even more the next year. With trade being opened up with the US through Brazil, the Venezuelan oil companies getting high profits are able to push through and begin expanding oil infrastructure for a much more international presence and market. The Venezuelan population grows to about 5.2 million with families opting to have more than two children. This does in fact begin a recovery from the previous civil war. Support for the government and the economic prosperity being achieved is more widely known reaching about a stable 62%. The Venezuelan military begins to purchase small amounts of equipment from Brazil once again. Venezuela begins using some of its oil money to help repair more damage from the civil war and builds up its cities working on poverty.Venezuela makes its first non internal move militarily in years and deploys nearly 100,000 troops to The Brazilina border with Peru.
    • Uruguay: Uruguay's economy continues to increase now by a larger amount as infrastructure increases international traffic through the country in which various men have seen business and more investment opportunity in the country which begins to show a noticeable increase in the economy, as well as a noticeable drop in unemployment. The Uruguayan agricultural, manufacturing and banking sectors all increase moderately with banking becoming more lucrative as Uruguay opens up new high rise banks and large department stores in its capital as a showcase to the rest of the country what's to come. Uruguay, not needing to focus on its military, (while still lightly built upon and upgraded) begins fighting poverty in the country beginning to buy up many of the poverty striken areas and beginning a program that helps find people in poor neighborhoods find work, and be moved into new apartment buildings that are much nicer than their previous dwellings. Uruguay deploys 50,000 troops to the Bolivian-Peruvian Border with its allies
    • Paraguay: Paraguayan infrastructure begins to be linked up with surrounding nations' infrastructure for centralization purposes allowing for a much easier time of working on agriculture and resources as well as trade. The Paraguayan government begins to encourage large families - even offering modest subsidies to families who agree to have more than three children. The Paraguayan economy begins its own modest expansion at a healthy growth rate of about 3.8% and growing thanks to increasing trade and now the access to ports among other things to get Paraguayan goods. The government begins seeing opportunities to bring Paraguay back to its former status begins using its inclusion into the Brazilian sphere to get large economic expansion rights as well as foreign (mostly Argentinian and Brazilian) technicians in helping expand the communications infrastructure as well economic infrastructure. Paraguay officially begins to repair relations with Bolivia looking to help include Bolivia more and have them be less of outsiders, Paraguayan envoys meet with various Bolivian politicians and attend sporting events with them attempting to establish a much more personal relationship with Bolivian politicians. The Paraguayan perception of its previously forced integration into the bloc improves as the large economic prosperity and the relative lack of dead from the war has led to a supremely better perception of its allies and a type of respect. Paraguayan forces using this as a way to improve Paraguayan, Bolivian relations deploy nearly 100,000 troops to the Bolivian, Peruvian Border and also send another 50,000 to the Brazilian border with Peru.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Brazilian population in the Guyanas begins to grow lightly and the European populations remaining are treated relatively well. Brazil does manage to create large numbers of jobs in the area. The Confederation begins to expand its light industry and agriculture. Gold and diamond mining in the area begins to expand as well. A light police and military force is created at the discretion of Brazil. Natives of both Guyanas both agree that they will refuse outright to be annexed properly into Brazil, and if possible with the attempt to Include Suriname they will centralize the Guyanas into its only, "Little Europe" nation. The governments of both Guyanas do, however, agree that if offered equal status as part of a larger Federation they would in fact join for the prosperity and opportunity it would provide. The Confederation begins to work on differences between themselves and begins to secure major inroads in the barriers between the two. Guyana abstains from involvement legally in the mobilization against Peru.
  • Norway: We destroyed the British ship that tried to come into our waters. Our special ops troops tell us that there were weapons and troops in the ship we destroyed. We now have special ships in our waters to protect our country from the British. The modernization of Norway is going along very well. 
  • Peru: With Chile being a problem, we decide to focus on Bolivia instead by staging a terror attack on an airport in La Paz and leaving behind false evidence that Brazil and Chile were responsible, even getting the agents to act like Brazilians and Chileans and this is pulled off in an attempt to damage Brazil's credibility and getting an excuse to invade Chile. The Chileans are invaded days later after a massive air bombardment campaign and we begin producing massive amounts of war material. We ask Germany for a trade agreement. SECRET: We continue our nuclear program and request help from Germany.
  • No ... You have nobody that speaks Portuguese. You didn't prepare whatsoever and get anyone that speaks Portuguese, and Brazil has the resources to disprove you in a heartbeat. Chile is barely even plausible. Not to mention you invading Chile less than a week later would remove all blame from Brazil regardless. Considering you've been on top of them for about three years it's pretty obvious who did it. -Feud
  • Feud, there are these things called language teachers ... either way, he can do it, but it would be pretty easy to disprove.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Dominion of India: The tables have turned, the nation changed. The RSS is fighting hard in the Deccan, their last cities the site of vicious battles taking place between the Islamic troops and the RSS. Hyderabad is a bloodpit, troops are locked in hand to hand, block to block fighting. The RSS has superiority in tank and troop numbers, their air-cover strong. Their industrial heartlands all around the nation continue to pump out tanks and aircraft at a rapid pace, Their first bombers attack enemy positions. In the north, Congress is fighting for survival. The RSS and the Bengalis have cornered Congress and are attacking in a massive pincer movement which is tearing apart Congress. Their industry is being hit hard and they can not continue production at the numbers they enjoyed two years before. As Congress flies its last sorties and orders the last attacks using its remaining tank divisions, the RSS's new jet fighters attack them. The planes number over a hundred and it's a huge shock for Congress. The jet fighters destroy the remaining Congress aircraft and ensure air superiority over the Congress heartlands. By November, troops are entering Muzafarnagar and the outskirts of Delhi, with Congress throwing its remaining forces and tanks at them in a bid to stop their progress and try to perhaps launch a counterattack to take back industrial areas, It is pointless and on the 8th of December, the remainder Congress cabinet surrenders. In the Deccan, the jet aircraft take apart the Deccan air force and destroy the tank concentrations remaining. The Deccan continues to fight however, but it is only a matter of time until the troop numbers are too high and starvation too much for the Deccan and they break. By the 23rd of December, the small piece of land still called Deccan surrenders. Jinnah died in 1948, leaving the nation without a capable Prime Minister and speeding its demise. The Nawab escapes the nation, where he is - that is unknown. In Bengali controlled regions, Burmese workers are hard at work building industrial factories and railroads to connect population centres and boost trading. The Assamese regions see huge investment as bridges are being built and railroads are completed. Most of the route is through dense forest regions. Sen and Tata begin discussions on the future of the nation and begin to talk about how to form the government and how to open international relations. Their collective first action is to announce: "We are a free nation, not some dominion of a corrupt and unjust nation. We decide our own fate, we write our own destiny. Jai Hind!".
  • Germany: As the war games come to a close, production of military goods and vehicles continue to replace anything lost in the games. Landing craft and ships continue to be produced. Ruhrstahl missiles continue to be added to the jet aircraft of the Luftwaffe, and by now all planes are equipped with both anti-ship missiles and air-to-air missiles. Experiments with the A5 and A6 rockets continue with ranges increasing with each modification. Production of nuclear bombs continues, bringing the current arsenal up to 20 warheads in total. Research into nuclear fusion and nuclear energy continues, as well as the miniaturization of warheads so they can be put on missiles. Vassals continue to produce military goods and train their troops.New rocket departments are opened up in Kamerun and German Southwest Africa to explore the possibility of launching more rockets into space. German becomes a major language spoken in the colonies again. Pressure on Czechoslovakia continues, and the Axis nations surrounding it begin to do likewise.
  • 'Saudi Arabia:' Expansion of the military continues. The economy is booming from trade. We ask for an alliance with Colombia and Iran. (More Later)
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • The USSR expands military and industry. More stealth weapons are created, mostly submarines. Two flotillas of stealth submarines have been produced. Aid to the Indians stops as it seems they can now handle themselves. More jet and stealth research continues and another SBM sub is built. Also, fifteen nuclear weapons are now complete, with two being the largest and most powerful in the world. Research into H-bombs continues. The space program under Sergei Korolyev continues with more progress being made in the Sputnik program.

1951.0

Fidel Castro officially attempts to run for a high position in the Cuban Congress but his radical dispositions prevent his nomination.

Peru's invasion into Chile has largely stalled due to bad leadership, and the failure to achieve naval and air dominance. Chilean naval ships are now continually bombarding the Peruvian coast.

Many people begin to highly doubt any Brazilian involvement into the terrorist attack. This is due in part to the large business interests in Bolivia, and their membership in the SADC. Chile is similarly under scrutiny due to the speed with which Peru executed its invasion of Chile following the bombing in Bolivia.

A large train derails in the United States killing 85 people and injuring 500. It is considered one of the worst rail disasters in American history.

European economic success continues. However, a moderate recession occurs due to various reasons, some of which being a slacking off of trade in France due to major colonies being evacuated from the colonial system proper.

  • Brazil: Brazil's inquisition into the terrorist attack in Bolivia while at first attributed to Chilean and Brazilian governments involvement is officially disproven by the joint Bolivian-Brazilian inquiry removing all blame from Brazil and the blame on Chile being considered highly unofficial. This officially prompts Brazil to gather the SADC's previously mobilized forces in an intervention of Peru. President Ramos makes a speech condemning the blame of Brazil by Peru and during the speech receives news that one of the bombers which was tracked down and captured has revealed Peruvian involvement in the attack. This was done using advanced interrogation techniques used by Brazil's special forces units. This leads to the all-out attack on Peru by Brazil and its SADC allies (Algo complete). With this happening, the population becomes extremely galvanized against the Peruvian government which gives public support rallies for the toppling of the Peruvian government. The success of the SADC invasion, however, ends the support as fast as it began as the coalition had succeeded in seizing the country in a little under two months with minimal casualties to themselves and taking Peruvian prisoners by the thousands. The Brazilian economy continues as normal with minor changes from officially intervening into Peru. The Brazilian nuclear weapons program has expanded as well with multiple warheads in operation around the country as well as redundant warheads. The miniaturization of the warheads continues as well and the possibility of creating a thermonuclear weapon is considered and looked into. The Brazilian helicopter research now with multiple civilian and military variants has taken off into an industry of its own with helicopters being sold across the entirety of South America for multiple civilian purposes and less advertised military means. The military looks into creating an attack helicopter as well. The Brazilian investment in Bolivia - as well as their secret funding of the Federal Party - has led to high ranking business owners and influential legislators being elected into power, and the businesses able to throw more positive media at their workers. Brazil manages to galvanize Bolivian opinion against Peru who has used the terrorist attack to its advantage against Chile. The tanks manufactured previously continue to be fielded and more tactics for tank warfare are implemented. Jet aircraft continue to be updated as are naval-only aircraft being developed and produced. Brazil's population has reached 59.1 million.
    • Argentina: Continues its close and intensive work on its economy and Infrastructure using one to help expand the other in an expanding game. Argentina's population grows to about 21.3 million and growing rapidly. Railways and highways between Argentina continue to connect more thoroughly with Brazilian infrastructure through Uruguay which has begun expansion of its own infrastructure. However, the Argentinians abstaining from huge detrimental expenditures and the end of the infamous changing of powers just years before has begun to gather large amounts of popular support from the regime looking to increase the public support more than it already is. Argentina begins to invest heavily in Cuban agriculture and cash crops specifically offering to pay preferential prices for Cuban goods. Argentina also begins investments into Bolivian media, and political causes attempting to gain access to influential Bolivian politicians, media outlets and markets. Argentina invites various Bolivian politicians to Argentina to view soccer matches and begin talking about increased military and economic co-operation. The co-operation between Argentina and its surrounding nations continue to expand with close association between Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil happening and Venezuela continuing to integrate toward the closely tied economies. 150,000 Argentinian troops are moved into Brazil to mobilize on the border with Peru with its allies. These troops are used in the invasion of Peru. Brazil manages a little influence to get a nomination for Castro.
    • Venezuela: Venezuelan army continues to guard the oil industry and its platforms with heavy arms declaring them off limits except for working personnel. The oil industry now being much more powerful and well expanded throughout the country begins to show a positive economic growth with the oil money flooding back to the country being used to help build up and centralize Infrastructure with Brazil. The economic growth reaches a moderate 4.3% growth with growth expected to expand even more the next year. With trade being opened up with the US through Brazil, the Venezuelan oil companies getting high profits are able to push through and begin expanding oil infrastructure for a much more international presence and market. The Venezuelan population grows to about 5.2 million with families opting to have more than two children. This does in fact begin a recovery from the previous civil war. Support for the government and the economic prosperity being achieved is more widely known reaching about a stable 62%. The Venezuelan military begins to purchase small amounts of equipment from Brazil once again. Venezuela begins using some of its oil money to help repair more damage from the civil war and builds up its cities working on poverty. Venezuela makes its first non-internal move militarily in years and deploys nearly 100,000 troops to the Brazilian border with Peru. These troops are used in the attack on Peru.
    • Uruguay: Uruguay's economy continues to increase now by a larger amount as infrastructure increases international traffic through the country in which various men have seen business and more investment opportunity in the country which begins to show a noticeable increase in the economy, as well as a noticeable drop in unemployment. The Uruguayan agricultural, manufacturing and banking sectors all increase moderately with banking becoming more lucrative as Uruguay opens up new high rise banks and large department stores in its capital as a showcase to the rest of the country what's to come. Uruguay, not needing to focus on its military, (while still lightly built upon and upgraded) begins fighting poverty in the country beginning to buy up many of the poverty striken areas and beginning a program that helps find people in poor neighborhoods find work, and be moved into new apartment buildings that are much nicer than their previous dwellings. Uruguay deploys 50,000 troops to the Bolivian-Peruvian border with its allies. These troops are used in the attack on Peru.
    • Paraguay: Paraguayan infrastructure begins to be linked up with surrounding nations' infrastructure for centralization purposes allowing for a much easier time of working on agriculture and resources as well as trade. The Paraguayan government begins to encourage large families - even offering modest subsidies to families who agree to have more than three children. The Paraguayan economy begins its own modest expansion at a healthy growth rate of about 3.8% and growing thanks to increasing trade and now the access to ports among other things to get Paraguayan goods. The government begins seeing opportunities to bring Paraguay back to its former status begins using its inclusion into the Brazilian sphere to get large economic expansion rights as well as foreign (mostly Argentinian and Brazilian) technicians in helping expand the communications infrastructure as well economic infrastructure. Paraguay officially begins to repair relations with Bolivia looking to help include Bolivia more and have them be less of outsiders, Paraguayan envoys meet with various Bolivian politicians and attend sporting events with them attempting to establish a much more personal relationship with Bolivian politicians. The Paraguayan perception of its previously forced integration into the bloc improves as the large economic prosperity and the relative lack of dead from the war has led to a supremely better perception of its allies and a type of respect. Paraguayan forces using this as a way to improve Paraguayan, Bolivian relations deploy nearly 100,000 troops to the Bolivian, Peruvian Border and also send another 50,000 to the Brazilian border with Peru. This makes good as the Paraguayan troops are used in the attack on Peru.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Brazilian population in the Guyanas begins to grow lightly and the European populations remaining are treated relatively well. Brazil does manage to create large numbers of jobs in the area. The Confederation begins to expand its light industry and agriculture. Gold and diamond mining in the area begins to expand as well. A light police and military force is created at the discretion of Brazil. Natives of both Guyanas both agree that they will refuse outright to be annexed properly into Brazil, and if possible with the attempt to Include Suriname they will centralize the Guyanas into its only, "Little Europe" nation. The governments of both Guyanas do, however, agree that if offered equal status as part of a larger Federation they would in fact join for the prosperity and opportunity it would provide. The Confederation begins to work on differences between themselves and begins to secure major inroads in the barriers between the two. Guyana abstains from involvement legally in the mobilization against Peru.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • United States: Launched from Cape Canaveral, the first American rocket enters the high atmosphere of Earth, before coming back down and landing somewhere off the coast of Florida.  The United States Space Agency, USSA, is established by the federal government to help support the American space program. (I wanted to change it up a bit, so I establish the US Space Agency instead of NASA). In terms of the B-52 Stratofortress, Boeing continues to produce such aircraft in Washington state, with the ten B-52's completed, with hopes of five more being completed by 1953. The nuclear arsenal is expanded to eleven nuclear weapons, while the development of the H-bomb, a smaller nuclear warhead to put onto rockets and missiles, and nuclear reactor continues. The Strategic Forces Command officially is given total command over all of the United States' nuclear arsenal. Meanwhile, the first prototype American stealth plane (hope it's not too early) is constructed and is planned to be tested in December of 1951. The development of anti-air and anti-ship missiles continue with hopes of having a prototype of such weapons done by 1951 and tested in March of 1952. The production of AR-1 and AR-2 assault rifles continues, with 50% of the armed forces outfitted with assault rifles, with the United States Army officially replacing the Thomsphon submachine with the AR-2 as the official weapon of the United States infantry. In relation to the outfitting of troops with equipment, approximately 80% of all military personnel in the United States have body armor to protect them from small arms fire (such as pistols) and shrapnel. General Dynamics continues to develop a new main battle tank that would have modern technology (advanced radios, rockets, etc.), while the manufacturing of the M-4 Sherman II and the M-1 Armored Personnel Carrier continues. Domestically, the construction of the Trans-Continential Electric Railroad System (TCERS) remains on schedule, with an electric rail line linking New York City and Boston to the already existing line that connects Philadelphia to Baltimore to Washington. Meanwhile, the City of Los Angeles announces plans to construct a series of monorail lines from Los Angeles to other major cities in southern California, such as San Diego, Anahiem, Riverside, Long Beach and Oxnard. Due to the increase in manufacturing, color televisions are now in the households of the rich and middle class, while the poor class continue to use radios and/or black and white television. In recent news, the state of Arkansas refuses to desegregate its schools, resulting in General Patton being authorized to use force to enforce the desegregation of the education system of Arkansas. Walt Disney continues to design an amusement park for his cartoons in Anhaiem, California, with hopes of having the park finished and opened by 1955. Internationally, the United States continues to invest in Cuba, with American corporations buying the stocks of company, industrial plants and agricultural plantations. The United States continues to secretly fund pro-American parties in the government of Cuba, with hopes of secretly vassalizing and/or annexing the island nation. Due to the "radicalism" of Fidel Castro and the threat he poses to American interests, the aircraft carrier USS Franklin D. Roosevelt and the battleship New Jersey remain stationed in Guantanamo Bay. The Sonora Territory becomes the fifty-first state, which would allow President Eisenhower to gain more votes to win the next presidential election. In St. Louis, the computer program continues, while the members of the computer program hope to test whether or not the computer could handle data in 1952. In short terms, the research and development into all techologies not mentioned continues, especially in the fields of medicine, robotics, transportation, etc. In economic foreign relations, American companies begin buying industrial factories, stocks and agricultural plantations in the nations of Haiti and the Dominican Republic, while the secret funding of pro-American political parties in the government begins. In California, Hollywood remains the "Entertainment Capital of the World", while Las Vegas and its casinos are granted the position as the "Gambling Capital of the World". In Mexico, President Guitierrez is one of the most popular presidents of Mexico, due to him - and the United States - bringing peace and prosperity to the nation that has suffered dozens of wars, revolutions and economic crises. Meanwhile, American companies continue to dominate the Mexican economy, with most of Mexico's resources being owned by United States-based economy. The infrastructure of the country is fully interlinked with the United States. In Cambodia, the economy is improved and American-Cambodian forces continue anti-Communist operations in the jungles of the nation. The infrastructure of the country is improved once again, with Cambodia being one of the most prosperous nations in East Asia, rivalled only by the Empire of Japan, Thailand and the Dutch East Indies. (Cross out what is implausible, or tell me ways to improve it to make it plausible)
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia.
    •  Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Australia:The Australian government elects to leave the British Commonwealth due to public opinion on the strength of the British government after the invasion of Ireland. (HA!) The new Prime Minister, Alfred Mattews, begins introducing capitalism into the country. Work begins on new factories and a military is put in place. Diplomatic relations are opened with the United States, and a plan is made to build a navy. Australia offers an alliance with Japan.

  • Yeah, I wanted to start playing again.
  • Yeah, that's all implausible from this standpoint. -Feud

German becomes a major language spoken in the colonies again. Pressure on Czechoslovakia continues, and the Axis nations surrounding it begin to do likewise.

1951.5

Many are shocked when Fidel Castro manages to gain a congressional nomination and is elected by popular vote quite easily. High hopes are placed in him as many Cubans agree with his more Cuban-centered policies.

The Peruvian government collapses and after light fighting is replaced by an interim government. Chile demands reparations for damage done to its northern areas. The Peruvian government flees abroad.

The Australian economy begins moderate expansion.

The United States continues to reign as the economic king of the world boasting the world's highest GDP.

German influence in Czechoslovakia is strong enough that the government is now staunchly pro-German.

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.

  • Norway: We upgrade our navy. Our nation is a full force Communist nation. We are still modernizing to be like other European countries. In our country oil is the biggest producer. The economy expands due to the exporting of our oil to other European countries.
  • Saudi Arabia: Our navy and air force expands further. We station 50 thousand soldiers on the national borders to protect our nation. North Yemen expands its military as well, and its infrastructure improves. We ask Great Britain, Colombia and France for an alliance. 
  • Switzerland: We continue to work on infrastructure and our underground bunker system. The bunkers will be finished by 1952.
  • Brazil: Brazil's attempt at eradicating the major slums/favelas of its country are largely successful with nearly 89% of the favelas being plowed under and overhauled as affordable housing. The huge job opportunities in the interior towns and cities and ease of getting things has managed to allow for this clear out as it has created a job equilibrium which has allowed for a much better standard of life, Some welfare programs are passed out to the remainder of the peoples still residering in the favelas. However, with most of them eradicated, the president declares the unsung war against the public issues of poverty and the undeveloped areas of cities in the favelas is over. With the end of this and funding being freed up for other social projects, the government turns its investment into the South American infrastructure plan, in which international plans between Brazil and its economic allies will centralize their economies, infrastructure and some emergency services to be cross-border capable. With re-investment the government is able to sublease many contracts out to companies progressing their growth. The military also manages to expand its arsenal of nuclear weapons widely. With nearly 50 being manufactured of varying sizes, one has a developing program around it in which it could be mounted inside or on the tip of a rocket. However, other designs for more efficient usage are required to be developed. The Brazilian military continues to work with radar and guidance coming out with a prototype air-to-air missile. It fails but further refinement is expected to yield good results. With the FIFA World Cup coming around, the Brazilian contractors put their finishing touches on all the stadiums and prepare the other minor details for the tournament. The Brazilian investment in Bolivia - as well as their secret funding of the Federal Party - has led to high ranking business owners and influential legislators being elected into power, and the businesses able to throw more positive media at their workers. On the lower levels, the Federal Party, appealing to the lowest classes and to some of the upper classes which are profiting from it, becomes increasingly popular making its first successful election campaign in Bolivia. Brazilian arms manufacturers finish their special forces variant of the ENG-14. The Brazilian military research develops the EH-21 and the EH-31 - a medium, and heavy tank respectively - which are modernized and expected to be fielded alongside the EH-2 Serpente tanks. The Brazilian air force continues development as its jet aircraft are proven to be extremely effective, but lacking in fuel efficiency - like many jets of the time. With Peru unexpectedly switching to an Axis stance, Brazil organizes a possible referendum on including them into the SADC. The Brazilian nuclear fission power program continues as before with expected first reactor to be operation by 1953 or 1954. The population of Brazil reaches about 60.1 million and is growing. The Brazilian government finally manages to disprove any Chilean involvement into the Bolivia bombing managing to lay the blame on the previous Peruvian government.
    • Argentina: Argentina continues its close and intensive work on its economy and Infrastructure using one to help expand the other in an expanding game. Argentina's population grows to about 20 million and growing rapidly. Railways and highways between Argentina continue to connect more thoroughly with Brazilian infrastructure through Uruguay which has begun expansion of its own infrastructure. However, the Argentinians abstaining from huge detrimental expenditures and the end of the infamous changing of powers just years before has begun to gather large amounts of popular support from the regime looking to increase the public support more than it already is. With Argentina's invasion mostly complete around 150,000 troops remain in the country to allow for a peaceful transition to a more friendly government. Surprised by Paraguay's quick and relatively low casualty capitulation, Argentina calculates the deaths to be only about 50,000 and the Argentinian government agrees to pay reparations to the families of the dead and help in rebuilding the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion and the damaged countryside. Argentina begins to invest heavily in Cuban agriculture and cash crops specifically offering to pay preferential prices for Cuban goods. Argentina also begins investments into Bolivian media, and political causes attempting to gain access to influential Bolivian politicians, media outlets and markets. Argentina invites various Bolivian politicians to Argentina to view soccer matches and begin talking about increased military and economic co-operation. Argentina begins to work on poverty and the income inequality in the country bringing some notable economists and businessmen into a congressional meeting to talk about how Income for poorer people can be raised a normal amount to account for inflation and other changes. The meeting is largely successful as the world seeing less poverty will show the true successes of its nation and its business relations with Brazil
    • Venezuela: Venezuelan army continues to guard the oil industry and its platforms with heavy arms declaring them off limits except for working personnel.

Support for the government and the economic prosperity being achieved is more widely known and while just barely over 57% it is growing. The Venezuelan military begins to purchase small amounts of equipment from Brazil once again. Venezuela begins using some of its oil money to help repair more damage from the civil war and builds up its cities working on poverty.

    • Peru: The Transitional government is barely able to deal with its own situation having to rely solely on SADC occupants uses police forces in an attempt to stabilize the major cities. After the success the Peruvian government takes out a series of loans from Brazil and various SADC members in order to jump-start its rebuilding process and start rebuilding the economy from the ground up to be part of the successful arena of economies the SADC entails. Public opinion while low improves somewhat due to the fact some corrupt officials were removed and that free elections will be taking place to choose their leaders. 
  • Germany: As the war games come to a close, production of military goods and vehicles continue to replace anything lost in the games. Landing craft and ships continue to be produced. Ruhrstahl missiles continue to be added to the jet aircraft of the Luftwaffe, and by now all planes are equipped with both anti-ship missiles and air-to-air missiles. Experiments with the A6 and A7 rockets continue with ranges increasing with each modification. Production of nuclear bombs continues, bringing the current arsenal up to 30 warheads in total. Research into nuclear fusion and nuclear energy continues, as well as the miniaturization of warheads so they can be put on missiles. Vassals continue to produce military goods and train their troops.New rocket departments are opened up in Kamerun and German Southwest Africa to explore the possibility of launching more rockets into space. German becomes a major language spoken in the colonies again.  Germany begins experimenting with the idea of putting objects into orbit around the earth, but high command is not convinced of the usefulness of such an endeavor. German troops are withdrawn from Peru. Hungary is withdrawn from German puppeting, as long as it remains part of the Axis. Hungarian negotiations are over and give Hungary some more land that was unjustly taken from it.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. Declares war on Turkey.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supplies the Greek troops in Anatolia.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Declares war on Turkey.
  • The USSR expands military and industry. Influencing Romania and Iran continues. The Shah of Iran is assassinated and aid is sent to the Communist insurgents who attempt to seize control of the government. More Communist propaganda is smuggled into each country. At home, the space program continues and more nuclear weapons are built, each stronger and larger than the last.

1952

The University of Tennesee admits its first black student.

The Winter Olympics is held in Norway with around the same results as the previous Olympics.

Fulfencio Batista does not manage to retake power in Cuba.

The B-52 Stratofortress flies for the first time.

Iran remains in a state of chaos with Islamist republicans, Communist and royalists lead by Reza Pahlavi each struggle to take control. With the Communists being supported by the USSR, the republicans are quickly vanquished and the fight boils down into the Communists and the royalists.

Angolan nationalists unhappy with being ruled as colonial subjects, unhappy with the speed of decolonization, and the horrible standing of Portugal abroad declare independence looking for international recognition. The Angolan nationalist while majority successful still have multiple Portuguese enclaves to deal with along the coast as well as a large presence in the Capital. Many hope the Portuguese will simply leave the colony and let it be free.

I don't know what this is ... there is a date set for decolonization ...

The USSR sends aid to Angola and recognizes it as a nation independent of Portugal. We send military aid as well as Communist people to help the Angolans set up a functioning (Communist) government. Diplomats are also sent to Lisbon to convince the Portuguese to give the Angolans independence in full.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • United States: The United States Space Agency continues experimenting with rocketry, with the range of ballistic missiles increasing, while others hope to have a rocket into space by 1954 (hope that's all right). Meanwhile, the research into the fission hydrogen bomb continues, as well as the development of miniature warheads to be put on missiles, while construction of America's first prototype nuclear reactor (I also hope is is fine). With the B-52 achieving its first long-distance flight, production is increased with the Strategic Forces Command ordering a total of fifty B-52's. Meanwhile, most of the United States military is outfitted with body armor, while more armored personnel carriers are produced. The United States Navy begins looking at the possibility of nuclear-powered warships, particularly aircraft carriers and submarines. The United States tests its first prototype stealth jet, which is met with success and the government assumes that the first model can be produced by 1954 or 1955. The Central Intelligence Agency begins to secretly plan for the assassination of Fidel Castro, due to his threat to American cities. Domestically, the desegregation of the southern United States continues, with President Eisenhower praises the University of Tennessee for admitting its first black student. Hollywood continues to produce movies and it remains the Entertainment Capital of the World. All other stuff from last turn continues.
  • Um -- He's no threat to American cities and he's a Cuban congressman ... He isn't the rebel of OTL. The US didn't even consider him a real threat until he actually took executive power OTL.
  • Oh, okay. Just ignore it then. And I meant interest, not cities, stupid me. - Enc
  • Norway: We upgrade our navy. Our nation is a full force Communist nation. We are still modernizing to be like other European countries. In our country oil is the biggest producer. The economy expands due to the exporting of our oil to other European countries. We are happy to hold the Winter Olympics in our country. Our hockey team takes second place while our snowboarding team takes third place. In the end we were in fourth place in how many medals we won in the Olympics.
  • The Olympics had around the same medals to the same countires as the last one ... you don't get to unanimously contradict the mod event.
  • Brazil: The continued opening of major middle class housing continues where favelas were as the middle class now vastly outnumbers the lower classes as readily available jobs have led to a thriving job market with unemployment hovering around 4.2%. The Brazilian military continues to push its research projects with upgraded jet engines coming around and the first civilian jet liners being allowed for Brazilian air liner companies but nearly only the most high end companies. The Brazilian companies - particularly auto manufacturers - continue to try to surpass a few luxury items manufactured in Europe such as cars. With a ready paved and well supported highway infrastructure the auto industry expands heavily with millions of affordable cars being purchased. Thuto industry also exports to many of its various allies and trade partners worldwide. Brazil now has about 40 nukes and continues its research into miniaturized warheads as well as missile and rocketry research. Brazil does manage to moderately produce some of its first air to air missile which are tested with resounding success and armed on some fighters in the navy and air force. The Brazilian government also continues to push larger population growth as well. The production of the Amazon states continues to expand with many of the previous lower class people finding good jobs in the area and able to afford cheap but well off middle class housing. This is considered to be a major triumph for the social status of Brazil. Influence on Bolivia continues with investment and the funding to the increasingly more influential Federal power bringing pro-Brazil thoughts to many Bolivians. Brazil secretly funds Fidel Castro and many people which have switched to his political preferences as a Cuban nationalist. The Brazilian government officially begins the revamping of various naval ships to do scheduled maintenance and upgrades particularly doing this with destroyers, cruisers and carriers. Due to the large immigration of Hispanics Brazil officially names Spanish as one of the country's official languages alongside Portuguese as a sign on comraderie with their Spanish Brothers. Secretly the Brazilian special forces known as the Espadas manage to infiltrate Fidel Castro's security detail and currently pose as his security in place of the less capable Cuban services. Their presence and origin remains relatively unquestioned as they manage to help in Fidel Castro's defence spectacularly. Brazil keeps all its air force and radar stations on constant alert as well as its anti-air sites to prevent any incursions into Brazilian airspace. The same is done in all vassals. Brazil's naval forces are deployed alongside its allies in Europe stonewalling the British. The navy in the immediate area steps up patrols and has a safety net extending as far as Brazilian waters go. Some troops are sent to Caribbean possessions and the South Atlantic possessions to seize them as well. Brazil officially recognizes Angolan independence and sends its own aids to Angola in order to establish a friendly, more capitalist government. Their acceptance goes relatively well as the Brazilians were former colonials of Portugal as well.
    • Argentina: Argentina continues its close and intensive work on its economy and Infrastructure using one to help expand the other in an expanding game. Argentina's population grows to about 23.4 million and growing rapidly. Railways and highways between Argentina continue to connect more thoroughly with Brazilian infrastructure through Uruguay which has begun expansion of its own infrastructure. However, the Argentinians abstaining from huge detrimental expenditures and the end of the infamous changing of powers just years before has begun to gather large amounts of popular support from the regime looking to increase the public support more than it already is.  Argentina continues to invest heavily in Cuban agriculture and cash crops specifically offering to pay preferential prices for Cuban goods. Seeing the Federal party as a foray into Bolivian politics and their already decent standing in Bolivia's political system, Argentina begins a major secretive funding operation into the Federal party. Argentina begins to work on poverty and the income inequality in the country bringing some notable economists and businessmen into a congressional meeting to talk about how Income for poorer people can be raised a normal amount to account for inflation and other changes. The meeting is largely successful as the world seeing less poverty will show the true successes of its nation and its business relations with Brazil. The Argentinian military turns some of its special air services into a major clandestine special operations unit known as the GOE (Grupo de Operaciones Especiales) This Groups initial members highly trained, are able to suppress the various anti-Integrationist movement in Argentina specifically targeting the militant ones. Their success is unprecedented and even criminal mafias and gangs fear their reprisals. A particular criminal group known and drawing inspiration from the American Mafia even manages to accrue a secret agreement with the GOE snuffing out other known major crime organization in exchange for immunity from GOE Reprisals. The Argentine mafia led by Italian immigrants to Argentina makes a link up with the American cosa nostra (Italian-American mafia) and manages to gather legitmacy and influence through Argentine criminal organization - even establishing or purchasing multiple legitimate business fronts which stretch into Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, and to a lesser degree, Chile. Their influence into many of these countries is sought over by many secret dealers for the Argentine and Brazilian governments.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela's economy continues to grow heavily with its oil industry taking off. The Venezuelan army also now with the majority of loyalty assured and its co-operation efforts with its allies has fully secured its country finally beating out the last of the rebels. The Venezuelan infrastructure - now thanks to some subcontracting - has linked up very well with its Brazilian counterpart. The Venezuelan population hits about 6.3 million and growing. The country's navy - while small - remains potent as it receives direct training from the most experienced Brazilian naval troops. The Venezuelan government also places an order for a battleship declaring that "it will not be the only Brazilian ally without a major navy." This buildup begins to show an intensified, almost fanatical support for Brazil in stark contrast to the country's previous issues  and loyalties regarding its civil war. The Venezuelan special forces make a notable appearance in the training of police forces. The SOB (special operation brigade) is rumoured to have been trained by the Espadas and is fiercely dedicated to keeping the country's well being intact through maintaining connections to Brazil. The SOB begins funneling intracked money through the country to political officials in direct alignment with Fidel Castro. Some of the funding is gathered to be masked Brazilian funding.
    • Uruguay: Uruguay's economy continues to increase now by a larger amount as infrastructure increases international traffic through the country in which various men have seen business and more investment opportunity in the country which begins to show a noticeable increase in the economy, as well as a noticeable drop in unemployment. The Uruguayan agricultural, manufacturing and banking sectors all increase moderately with banking becoming more lucrative as Uruguay opens up new high rise banks and large department stores in its capital as a showcase to the rest of the country what's to come. Uruguay, not needing to focus on its military, (while still lightly built upon and upgraded) begins fighting poverty in the country beginning to buy up many of the poverty striken areas and beginning a program that helps find people in poor neighborhoods find work, and be moved into new apartment buildings that are much nicer than their previous dwellings. The population of Uruguay reaches about 2.5 million. Uruguay's banking system officially becomes the most coveted and lucrative in South America and has made a name for itself in the United States as various rich businessmen and investors have deposited their money into the Uruguayan banks managing to reneg many of Switzerlands abilities of keeping the banking industry to itself. 
    • Paraguay: Paraguayan infrastructure begins to be linked up with surrounding nations' infrastructure for centralization purposes allowing for a much easier time of working on agriculture and resources as well as trade. The Paraguayan government begins to encourage large families - even offering modest subsidies to families who agree to have more than three children. The Paraguayan economy begins its own modest expansion at a healthy growth rate of about 3.5% and growing thanks to increasing trade and now the access to ports among other things to get Paraguayan goods. The government begins seeing opportunities to bring Paraguay back to its former status begins using its inclusion into the Brazilian sphere to get large economic expansion rights as well as foreign (mostly Argentinian and Brazilian) technicians in helping expand the communications infrastructure as well economic infrastructure. Paraguay manages to open friendly relations with Bolivia thanks to the Peru Incident. The general consensus that was previously left over that Argentina and Brazil were evil finally begins to wear off as the increased economic standing and its quality of life improving greatly has greatly improved their relations with Brazil, Argentina and their collective allies. Paraguay has once again gone down the track of being a truly economic power and envied nation due to its abilty to control its economy so precisely. The Paraguayan economists are highly sought after by businesses and the like to help the economies of various countries. The Paraguayan population reaches 1.4 million and growing thanks to various population expansion friendly policies.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas show no major immigrant increase in Brazilians throughout the two areas but show some increases in Spanish Americans. The Guyanas also begin to to allow for some foreign investment reserving most of it for its South American neighbors. The major gold and aluminum industries, however, remain majority nationalized as they allow for the economic growth of both. Sugar and other cash crops also serve to boost the economy to a decent degree as well. The Guyanas regardless of their separation are able to grow closer as the Brazilian government and their friendliness in allowing the areas to deal with the Brazilian economic bloc has left a lasting good impression upon the people. The Guyanan peoples once again hope for the acquisition of Suriname but due to their lesser stature and the SADC's various other commitments the confederal council does not think the acquisition of Suriname is likely. 
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to do the trick as the money is used in the right ways. This has allowed the economy to come back in a small way. The government prepares to have elections in 1953 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially join Brazil's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 8.2 million.
  • Japan: All programs are continued and pushed forward. Civil nuclear energy is close to being established though it will take a few more years to finish. Meanwhile, research into fusion nuclear reactions is also pushed forward with the intention of creating a stronger nuclear weapon. Repression in China and Korea continue as the government calls for rebels to surrender before negotiations can begin. On the side, however, the repression is looking to be successful as the Chinese and other rebels are being successfully defeated in nearly every single engagement. Development of a bullet train is planned based on research. However, this will take many years to see through to the end. Development in robotics and electronics and other areas begin (basic robotics did exist, look it up.) The Japanese economy continues to rise now being one of the world's most dynamic and powerful economies.
    • Manchukuo: Manchukuo continues to grow economically as oil exports grow and heavy industry expands. Troops are deployed to China to help hold down the region. The Manchu government begins various Infrastructure related projects in the attempt to help link and unify the country more. Pro-Manchu birth rates are also secretly subsidized in order to bring the Manchus out of the minority.
    • Indonesia: Economic development continues as the country begins to diversify the economy into areas other then resource exploitation. Oil begins to be exploited and exported to Japan and its other Asian states.
    • Vietnam: Tensions continue to rise. Infrastructural projects are undertaken in order to push the country into the ability to speedily exploit its land and resources for the growth of the economy. This is done in earnest. (Nk appointed me to post for him).
  • Saudi Arabia: Investments in our country's military and infrastructure continues and the vassal of North Yemen expands its military as well. We secretly send aid to the royalists in Iran. We again ask for alliances with Great Britain, France and Colombia, and ask for a military alliance with Japan and the US. (Sorry for spelling. I'm in a rush)  
  • Switzerland: We complete our bunker system, which has two hangers for up to 72 fighter aircraft, and housing for 115% of our population. Many bunkers in the Alps are tunnels that can be sealed off in a nuclear war. We continue investing in anti-aircraft missiles. The government continues a neutral stance and calls for nuclear disarmament.
  • Germany: After years of training and planning, Axis forces launch Operation: Fall Großbritannien (Order 67), the invasion of Britain. The German, Danish, Swedish, Dutch, and allied navies of the Soviets, Italians and Brazilians all engage the Royal Navy in the English Channel, as German stealth jets and bombers attack British air bases, radar stations and other crucial points in Britain's air and coastal defences. German stealth bombers also attack military installations in Northern Scotland and Ireland, tying up resources and personal there. Flying bombs and A4 rockets are also used to attack crucial military check points from bases in the Netherlands. With the air force either destroyed or pre-occupied, paratroopers with weapons and supplies are dropped into southern Ireland to equip the angry Irish and support them in an armed uprising. With both the air force and the navy either destroyed or preoccupied, Axis troops numbering at least three million begin landing on English beaches in landing craft. German panzers and Soviet T-34s lead the charge. By the end of the month Axis troops have made several beachheads in England and are advancing. There is only constant fighting, as German troops are able to keep the violence going as they fight using advanced infrared scopes attached to their tanks and assault rifles. Bombing sorties over England become commonplace as the government is ordered to surrender immediately. Nuclear weapons are not used in the invasion, but are on standby if needed. Axis radar stations are on constant alert should the British try to bomb continental Europe. Production of military goods is accelerated to keep the armed forces equipped due to the invasion.
  • In Britain, Anthony Eden walks into public, gives a big smile, and presses a big red button that sends nuclear weapons - in bombers and missiles - to all the "Axis" targets. Not all make it through, but many do, and their populations are decimated several times (Decimated means reduced by one tenth).
  • So I am going to suggest you read that one more time so you can figure out the two blatant errors in that post.
  • I'm thinking 'smile' and 'many'. I guess something like 30-40% is more like what we're talking about. BTW for the record, OTL in the 80s, most Soviet nukes would have gone through, so this is quite ASB, but what the fuck, I'll give you missile errors and all if you let me fuck Feud and Scraw up :D ~Guns
  • 1. That's Total meta, 2. The only nukes you deployed to the Americas are currently in Colombian hands who has a NAP with me and Fed is absent, 3. You have no ability to reach any of us because it was preemptive and all your forces would be caught on the ground. Also, nuclear ICBM's have not been invented by anyone yet ... so, yeah, no ... -Feud
  • Scraw is farther than MP. Not possible to hit Scraw and not MP.
  • MP has nukes defenses, Scraw doesn't. It really is. And Feud, are you joking? I turned the Falklands into the mother of all military bases after WWII. That includes nukes. And caught on the ground ... really ... my AF is one of the best in the world, my fighters could EASILY hold off your planes until the bombers got off the ground. And your AAA can not possibly be that great. And ICBM? It's not intercontinental - we're way ahead of the V2, and that OTL rocket could hit Britain from Germany. But why are we arguing? PM3 fever'll have killed this game in a week. See y'all on the other side, mis amigos, and let's try to forget Scraw, you little espece de conne, that this marks the sixth time you've betrayed me. In PM3, Guns is striking back.
  • Ah, but I do. I've worked on them quite a bit, not including some stuff I borrowed from Germany. Anyway, your nukes are now ridiculously spread out and we could turn the Isles into a radiation hellzone for millennia to come. Also, we caught you off guard, since the world was in a sort of peace up until this. Germany and the other Axis have had a good deal of turns to build up their everything in preparation for this while you were relatively dormant. Also, I haven't betrayed you this time. Might I remind you that I fought with my fellow Axis in WWII and have remained with them since? In PM3 Guns is too far.
  • See if I care? There's no way I'm withstanding this; I'm just concentrating on dealing out as much damage as possible against the USSR, Brazil, and Germany. So fine, each of you gets about three to five hits. Enough to take out two big cities. Ehh, you'll survive. But I think you'll remember :D. And in PM3 Guns has the best navy on Earth, save for the Chinese. I think Guns can reach :D
  • You have only said you hyped up the Falklands. you never said you deployed any major equipment. So in essence, your lack of detail officially proves that you have nothing even remotely in the area of being able to reach Brazil. You have deployed no bombers, no aircraft, and only maintain A moderate naval presence ... no detail means you don't have shit in the area. This is three mods vs one ... -Feud
  • No. The first time I popped it up, that's what I said. Afterward, I added bombers and shit. YOU KNOW WHAT BOMBERS CARRY, FEUD? Anyway, shut up. I'm allowed to nuke y'all. You're nuking me after all. And while I was away? MP, I expect that from Douchbag Inc and My Way Goes Industries (Scraw and Feud, respectively), but that's just low from you. BE ASHAMED.
  • I've been away for the last two hours, so I didn't do anything ... Anyway, let us move this to the talk page.
  • ?? You guys planned this over weeks. And what are we discussing? This is me cracking jokes as the map game dies. PM3 Fever!
  • Yeah. No, the Kalmar Union is not some great-ass nation. Anyway, we have all stated that we shall not use nukes against you unless you use them again us, so now we have 50ish nukes to destroy the Isles to hell and back.
  • I care not, again. PM3 fever will kill this universe anyway :D
  • Only because of people like you.
  • That hurt.
  • In Britain, Anthony Eden receives the grim news that he can not hold off the invasion, and makes the choice. The largest navy on earth begins evacuation of the isles as nuclear weaponry is moved into all the largest cities. After the cities are evacuated, the bombs are detonated. The ships make sail for America and Australia, where they will tell their descendants of a brave nation that once existed in the far north ... yes, we were Britons ...
  • Yeah, no.
  • The USSR declares war on Britain and mobilizes troops. The parts of the Baltic fleet that were built up and expanded in preparation for Order 67 move to attack the British coast, catching the Royal Navy off guard. Within weeks, beaches around Great Yarmouth have been captured and troops begin to move in. Norwich is captured and used as headquarters for the invading troops. On the other side of the world, the Pacific fleet that was prepared for the invasion crosses the Pacific, landing on Vancouver Island and the city of Vancouver proper, capturing both locations. Troops defeat the Canadians with relative ease and diplomats are sent to Ottawa to negotiate terms of surrender, as the populace is very agreeable with the military. Military action in Canada does not surpass the borders of British Columbia and Canada is expected to surrender shortly due to vast displeasure with the British. Diplomats are sent to Washington DC to assure the Americans that the USSR bears no ill will with them and does not plan to invade them at all. Meanwhile, the military and industry are built up at home as anti-aircraft weaponry is prepared to defend major cities such as Moscow, Leningrad, and Stalingrad from British attacks. It is declared that nuclear weapons shall not be deployed against the United Kingdom or associated territories unless they attack the Soviet Union first.
  • ​Ireland: ​Ireland rebels against the British, and begin attacking several military installations. German paratroopers aid them with weapons and training. The New Irish government establishes itself in Cork after heavy fighting. It declares itself independent of Britain. ​Secret: Ireland requests that they receive 25% of Britain's Nukes, and whatever remains of the navy, along with Wales and Scotland being given to Ireland.
  • Spain: Following many years of isolationism under Franco's authoritarian pseudo-Fascist regime, high ranking officials in the Party and Franco himself decide to reform Spain into a more modern industrial nation. Franco decides to appear in Madrid, stating his plan for Spain, which is known as the Iberian Revival. Coal, iron and other mining industries are expanded and many new jobs are created, bolstering the stagnant economy. Factories refining the minerals begin to expand into major cities, and several new large buildings are planned in Toledo, Madrid, Barcelona, etc. Franco personally denounces Britain, calling them privately a nation of "godless liars". Military and navy sre expanded, and we secretly supply aid to the rebels in Angola. We ask for a trade agreement with Brazil and other South American nations, seeking "better relations with historical colonies and fellow Latin and Catholic nations." We also tell Fascist nations such as Germany that we will not abandon our ideology, as we will remain Falangist. We openly support Ireland in their cause for independence and recognize them. 
  • Brazil/Argentina (and all other Vassals): We will agree to this.

1952.5

Guatemala enacts decree 900 which redistributes the uncultivated land.

The US government in Washington is buzzing due to the sightings of three UFO's. This is the first reported sighting of these aircraft. The previous incident in Roswell is kept a closely monitored and guarded secret.

Gamel Abdel Nassar stages a coup in Egypt which is highly successful. The nation is stabilized and secured in a matter of a month.

A 9.0 earthquake occurs in Kamchatka damaging massive amounts of local infrastructure and creating issues far to the west and as far down as China.

The British officially surrender to the Axis forces as they have been largely unprepared for the shock campaign. Areas such as the British caribbean possessions and their South Atlantic possessions unanimously surrender as well in order to avoid fighting a losing battle. Many men are given the ability to be transported to Australia, Canada or South Africa peacefully.

France rapidly mobilizes its military to counter possible Axis aggression in the face of the invasion of Britain.

Nuclear weapons are used in a limited fashion in Britain to take out military bases and facilities, as the first uses of nuclear weapons in warfare. A few British rebel groups detonate a few nukes, but the effects are minimal.

The occupation of Great Britain begins by Axis forces. The wide majority of the occupation force is German, with notable contribution by Irish, Romanian and Soviet forces. Germany takes the lead in the occupation, and a caretaker government is set up. Irish troops lead the occupation in Man and Wales, while Cornwall and Scotland are jointly occupied by Germany and Ireland, with Germany set to withdraw when Ireland is ready.

The majority of the British government flees to Australia, The royal family and some of the government is unable to flee in time. They are not harmed, and are in German custody.

The Canadian government surrenders to the Axis. Soviets occupy the nation but are very friendly with the people, who appreciate them for freeing them from the bonds of the British, which were dragging them down. However, the Quebecois now seek assassination.

None of this will be going Communist in any way shape or form ... there are way too many American and British influences in the country and the area to ever go Communist.

Ugh guys, these are Canadians. They are not going to like the Soviets. Plus it does not even make sense for the Soviets to even invade Canada - remember America? They will not look upon the action kindly.

No, I'm not planning Communist anything in the region. Just independent Canada, Quebec and Maritime Provinces.

This is the Fifties, not the Sixties or the Nineties. There is no Quebecois identity yet.

Are you kidding me? The French Quebecois have been there since forever.

True, but up until the 1960s+, the Quebecois always thought of themselves as Canadians. Even wikipedia supports me. :P

Pro-Communist riots occur in Romania. Large force is used against small numbers, but the Communists are crushed.

In Iran, however, the Communists strategically commit regicide against the Pahlavis.

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • Brazil: The continued opening of major middle class housing continues where favelas were as the middle class now vastly outnumbers the lower classes as readily available jobs have led to a thriving job market with unemployment hovering around 4.2%.

The Brazilian government officially begins the revamping of various naval ships to do scheduled maintenance and upgrades particularly doing this with destroyers, cruisers and carriers. This is about 65% complete. Due to the large immigration of Hispanics Brazil officially names Spanish as one of the country's official languages alongside Portuguese as a sign of comraderie with their Spanish brothers. Secretly, the Brazilian special forces known as the Espadas manage to infiltrate Fidel Castro's security detail and currently pose as his security in place of the less capable Cuban services. Their presence and origin remains relatively unquestioned as they manage to help in Fidel Castro's defence spectacularly. Brazil continues to remain on major alert. The Brazilian government has officially seized the Falklands and the South Georgia and Sandwich islands. Many of the other possessions in the Caribbean are delegated to allied SADC units particularly a Venezuelan-Brazilian battle group tasked to deploying garrisons to secure the islands. Jamaica possibly the most problematic he brought about relatively easily as the attitude of many of the people have allowed for a peaceful transition into a new government a protectorate and vassal of Brazil with relatively large amounts of autonomy. Trinidad and Tobago as well as the other lesser Antilles British possessions are formed into the Lesser Antilles Confederation all of which is a protectorate and vassal as well. Brazil, however, guarantees the independence of former British Honduras and sends envoys to establish relations with this new country. Brazil officially recognizes Angolan independence and sends its own aids to Angola in order to establish a friendly, more capitalist government. Their acceptance goes relatively well as the Brazilians were former colonials of Portugal as well.

The Guyanas regardless of their separation are able to grow closer as the Brazilian government and their friendliness in allowing the areas to deal with the Brazilian economic bloc has left a lasting good impression upon the people. The Guyanan peoples once again hope for the acquisition of Suriname but due to their lesser stature and the SADC's various other commitments the confederal council does not think the acquisition of Suriname is likely. 
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to do the trick as the money is used in the right ways. This has allowed the economy to come back in a small way. The government prepares to have elections in 1953 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially join Brazil's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 8.2 million.
  • India (?): The civil war has been harsh on the sub-continent of India. Overall, 45 Million people died in the bloodiest civil war of history. A census is quickly ordered by the new government of India to see what the population of the nation currently stands at. The RSS begins huge slave labour construction projects in the Deccan. Not caring for language or ethnicity, only religion is looked at in the former Islamic nation. All Muslims are put as slave labourers and reconstruction begins all around the south using these workers. Seeing the large numbers of the workers, many are put to work in the north and central India too. Yet the government realises that they will need a zone to hold the many Muslims who will not find work or the government will not find a use for them. As a result, the Special Reserved Zone is created in the north for them. Immediately hundreds of thousands try to flock to this "safe haven". Most of the Congress government is executed by the new RSS-Bengali government and an example is shown to the former supporters of the old regime. In the secret factories all around the nation, many have been damaged by malitias or proper fighting. As a result, the slave labour is used to begin repair and reconstruction work of these factories. The old docks left by Congress once more are given attention. Some slaves begin to remove the rubble of the docks. However, most of the slaves are in cities, clearing rubble and salvaging material for the re-construction work which is to follow. However, the civil war has left highly industrial and developed areas within the nation. These areas are the Greater Bombay region, the Greater Hyderabad region (although much will have to be repaired), the whole Bengali region which actually has significant focus on keeping the environment clean as well as the Greater Delhi and UP region. Although the north and south have taken huge hits, they will be rebuilt quickly as it is the focus. The large number of men who were fighting are now made into better organised divisions all having generals who all are full of experience. Tanks divisions are all present too. Aircraft divisions are also now made. However, the new jet aircraft are at the forefront of these squadrons. The focus is completely on creating better jet aircraft although the large number of propeller aircraft will be still used to cover borders. Burmese workers are hard at work building industrial factories and railroads to connect population centres and boost trading in the east. The Burmese workers are not looked to be equal as Indians (for now) but there are considered to be very loyal and useful; First-point-five Class if you may. They will receive housing and eventually schools and land. However, they will be sent all around the nation as paid workers. The Assamese regions see huge investment as bridges are being built and railroads are completed. Most of the route is through dense forest regions. The North-Eastern regions are now very well connected. Sen, Tata and their respective governments form the government after heavy discussions. Their policies will be for the collective Hindu and buddhist workers of their nation for them to benefit; a (that's right) National Socialist ideology if you may. However, the nation needs investments to create work and boom conditions - slaves are not going to cut it in the end, the Hindu and Burmese workers still need money. Therefore, they ask for Brazilian, Soviet and German investment in their nation. Hearing of the declaration of war on Great Britain, the nation declares war on the British Empire in support of its German and Brazilian allies. They will send troops, but they ask to hitch a ride on some allied ships. We plan to land our troops in Australia to take out the remaining "British" - we really hate the British. The positions in government have been decided and are announced to the nation. Surya Sen will assume the position of Premier of the nation. Tata will become the Chancellor of the nation. The discussion for the new name of the nation is still ongoing, however.
    • Brazil Dip: We manage to pool together all nations in the Braziian economic bloc for mass investment into Indian companies. The result, however, is that many corporations are majority held by South American stockholders and corporation owners funding the projects.
    • Australia is not considered to be part of the combat operations. Britain surrendered this turn as well.
    • Imp, I thought you knew how to do proper indentation. The USSR will fund India as long as Communist stuff is allowed in the nation.
    • It's not for italics. LOL. And damn it, I thought there was a front there - oh well. Sen assures the Soviets there will still be a need to house the glorious workers of the nation.
  • Norway: We send 100 ships to go take over Greenland. After the invasion we will then allow citizens to inhabit the land and build up the cities. The king sends a group of scientists to Greenland to see if there is anything of important resources on the island.
    • Norwegian D: We ask the Germans if we can spread Communism to Britain.
    • Norwegian D: We ask India if we can take the Muslims you don't want so we can give them jobs in our work force.
  • Greenland is going to Denmark. You are not getting the Muslims.
  • Mp said that I will be able to get Greenland once Britain falls!
  • Greenland goes to Norway.
    • German Diplomacy: Absolutely not.
  • Ireland: We seize all of Britain's remaining nuclear weapons, and divide them between Brazil, Germany, the USSR and ourselves, with each nation getting 25% each. Ireland demands that three-fourths of Britain's navy be given to them. it is decided that Ireland, Wales, Scotland, the Isle of Man and the Falklands island shall be merged into the Celtic Union. Any British tanks, jet aircraft and rifles are also seized and reverse engineered. However, we declare that Communism shall not be the dominant ideology, as we begin turning into a capitalist nation. The Bermuda Islands are declared Celtic Union territory by the government. We allow the Germans to remain in Cornwall.
    • Monster Pumpkin and I agreed to this - most of it anyway.
    • A puny power with three million people will not call the shots. The Indians would like to lay claim to around half the British navy due to the fact we have a need for ships and we would be able to support our allies in a much better fashion (note: I am kinda the most populous ally you folks have).
    • Damn it Imp! You removed my post. The Soviets object heavily to a tiny nation controlling such a large military force, which will not be sustainable. The Soviets agree that most of the navy should go to the Indians, as well as part of the air force, while Germany and the Soviets will take the remainder of the air force stuff.
    • Sorry about that. The Indians (?) thank the Soviets for their support and request they receive a couple of British jet fighters and a couple of the British jet bombers - overall, only four aircraft in total, plenty left for their Soviet allies.
    • Brazil Dip: To ireland, due to the fact that the Falklands and most of the British South Atlantic and Carbibean possessions are under SADC control they will be aligned with Brazil. Falklands and South Georgia and South Sandwich are ever fully claimed by Argentina which they will be given, too. Ireland is in no position to be making these sorts of demands. We will, however, agree to India getting whatever is left of the British navy (which isn't much - it was absolutely trashed) and Brazil requests an equal share in some of the air force equipment. Also to ireland, Bermuda is to be ceded as a territory of the United States as is the Bahamas due to proximity and to avoid a major issue involving them in the future. We also recommend that the Soviet Union - due to Canada's lack of support for the British - leaves Canada before riots break out or the Americans grow weary of Soviet presence.
    • Yeah, Falklands, South Georgia, South Sandwich, all to Brazil and co. Also, Soviets are leaving next turn.
    • Brazil D/Semi OOC: All right, sounds good.
    • Spain Diplomacy: The island of Britain should be administrated by the UN for now.
    • Celtic Union Diplomacy: We have come to a compromise. As India is in need of a Navy, we agree to give them half the total naval ships sized from Britain. The rest shall remain part of the Celtic Navy. Also, we would like to decide what the islanders vote upon who may rule them. We have not, however, made any claims to South Georgia and South Sandwich. They can go to Brazil. However, we would like to point out that Ireland has suffered under the British longer then India. We have more claim then anyone to Britain's former land. After all, which of us won our civil war in less then a year,only to be brutally occupied by a nation under the false belief that we bombed them? We shall continue with our claims to Bermunda.
    • Brazil Dip: Bermuda and the bahamas are now US territories to prevent further issues between the US, Brazil, and other maritime powers wishing to own Bermuda. The Falklands are already being incorporated into Argentina as are the South Sandwich and South Georgia. The Celtic Union will not be taking over any of the former colonies and overseas territories the British once held in the Americas and this is final.
  • The USSR celebrates the victory over the once great British Empire. Troops continue the very light occupation of Canada and it is decided that three new nations will be created: Canada (Canada west of Quebec), Quebec (Quebec), and Newfoundland (Newfoundland and Labrador as well as the Maritime Provinces). The form of government will be left up to the people due to possible uneasiness with Brazil and Germany if Communist nations are created. However, the nation is shaken after Stalin dies en route to a victory parade with German Chancellor XYZ and Brazilian President ABC. Nikolai Bulganin is quickly declared Premier of the Soviet Union. However, within weeks, Beria has Bulganin assassinated and replaced with his co-conspirator Leonid Brezhnev. Georgy Zhukov, having become aware of their plans beforehand, initiates a coup d'etat which quickly devolves into a war between the part of the military that has sided with Beria/Brezhnev and those that have remained loyal to Zhukov. The Second Civil War has begun. Each SSR quickly begins to take sides, with Ukraine, Byelorussia, the Baltic States, Finland, Poland, and Transcaucasia siding with Zhukov, who has promised minorities new SSRs in the event of their victory, while the other SSRs (Central Asia, etc) side with Beria and Brezhnev. However, the Russian SFSR remains in a state of continuous internal conflict. The northern regions, with major cities such as Leningrad and Moscow, remain in the hands of Brezhnev and Beria, while southern regions, closer to the western SSRs and Transcaucasia remain on Zhukov's side. The Far East remains loyal to the "official" government but is too far for either side to actually fight in. Troops begin to be recalled from Canada and Britain.
  • For Future Reference Brazil has a president. I filled it in for you -Feud
  • Brazil Dip: Due to Canada's rich history we definitely protest Canada being split into three nations and request that it remain a contiguous nation. The government has done nothing to deserve losing two-thirds of its territory and its previous government - already anti-British - should remain in power. It has a very good place fitting in with the nations of the world as is.
  • No one asked you. The USSR (this is pre-civil war USSR) reminds Brazil of the notable French speaking people of Quebec, who are now seeking independence, and the fact that the Maritime Provinces will be isolated from Canada with Quebecois independence. This is the best solution and does not require Brazilian comments. The Canadian government will remain in control of Canada and Quebec and Newfoundland shall elect new governments as they see fit.
  • Spain:
  • Saudi Arabia: With their recent military action, Saudi Arabia sends diplomats to each of the Axis nations in order to confirm that there is no ill will between them and Saudi Arabia. The number of troops on the borders is doubled and military production is increased in Saudi Arabia and North Yemen. We wish to put England's middle eastern territories under Saudi control until they can establish their own functioning governments. We offer haven to any Muslims facing violence in India, granted they can make it to Saudi Arabia.
    • The (pre-civil war) USSR support Palestine and Kuwait going to Saudi Arabia.
  • Switzerland: After seeing the UK fall to a joint German-Soviet invasion, we mobilize 50,000 active units, 100,000 reserves, and 350,000 militia members. We have 48 fighter jets ready for launch, and 20 tanks mobilized. Anti-aircraft guns and radar stations are manned 24/7. The government is not going on an offensive, but preparing for a possible bad scenario. The army sends 50 troops to guard the British and Canadian Embassy. We also send 20 troops to the German and Soviet embassies. We demand withdraw from Canada, and the destruction of any British nuclear weapons that were captured.
  • Yeah, no. No one is going to fuck with you. Why are you guarding the embassies? Why are you sending troops to the German and Soviet embassies? Are you trying to start a war? You can not just "destroy" a nuke like that. We'll withdraw from Canada when we're good and ready (next turn). Also, a lot of other people were in the war. Rules of war.
  • Spain: To fully end our isolationism, we ask to join the UN. The economic reforms continue, and Spain undergoes an economic boom. With the resources that we have newly developed, more weapons are produced, and the Spanish navy and army grows. We also begin development of a suitable air force. To show off Spain's power, we plan construction of a skyscraper in Madrid. Known as the Spire of Victory, it is dedicated to Franco. After the fall of Britain, we ask for her colonies to be put under self-rule or temporary rule by the UN. In the Moroccan Protectorate to the south of Spain, the leaders of the government decide that to avoid decolonization, they are to make the protectorate a part of Spain. Due to that, we encourage Spanish businessmen to move to Morocco, and free up jobs in the area, as the region is mostly autonomous. Catholic missionaries are sent to Morocco, with the hopes of converting parts of the populace to Catholicism. They, however, are covered up in their tracks to prevent association with the Spanish government. We ask to negotiate with Portugal in hopes of reaching a compromise with her African colonies. Spies are sent into Portugal and her colonies to spark tensions between them. We annex Gibraltar with the fall of Britain.
  • United States: The United States sends forces to occupy the Bahamas and the island of Bermuda (if that's all right with the mods). Meanwhile, the military is expanded and the development of technology continues. The space program continues like last turn, with the research into rocketry continuing. The civilian economy and infrastructure is improved, while the development of civilian technology continues. Infrastructure is also improved and expanded. Nuclear arsenal expanded and the research into the H-bomb.
  • Brazil Dip: We recognize US control of the Bahamas and Bermuda and in return request recognition of the SADC positions in the Caribbean. We also cordially invite the President of the United States to a sit down dinner with the SADC heads of state in order to discuss improving the relations between our two great countries.
  • American Dip: We recognize SADC position in the Caribbean, as well as President Eisenhower agrees to dinner.
  • South Africa: With the defeat of Great Britain the Nationalist Movement/Party takes full swing and we declare independence from the Dominion and declare ourselves to be the Republic of South Africa. Instead we found our own bloc. In order to ensure economic prosperity, massive industrial projects takes hold, with large mining operations in the interior, large shipping in the coast, and large trading in cities in between. We also form our own bloc, the African Federation, in order to ensure economic and industrial growth to African states. As such, we send aid to Angola in their struggle for independence. The National Party also adheres to the policy of apartheid, angering many blacks in the nation causing the rise of the African National Congress, led by Nelson Mandela, who partook in the Defiance Campaign. This led to mass arrests and a Congress meeting to decide what to do in the future regarding these strikes.  
  • Ireland: We seize all of Britain's remaining nuclear weapons, and divide it between Brazil, Germany, the USSR and ourselves, with each nation getting 25% each. Ireland demands that three-fourths of Britain's navy be given to them. it is decided that Ireland, Wales, Scotland, the Isle of Man and the Falklands island shall be merged into the Celtic Union. Any British tanks, jet aircraft and rifles and also seized and reverse engineered. However, we declare that Communism shall not be the dominant ideology, as we begin turning into a capitalist nation. The Bermuda Islands are declared Celtic Union territory by the government. We allow the Germans to remain in Cornwall.
  • Again, the Falklands to Argentina. You are not getting such a large navy.
  • I didn't post this. I swear. I didn't.

1953.0

The South African economy takes a noticeable hit with the ending of all major trade with the United Kingdom. Their recovery, however, is expected.

One of the most dynamic events in North and South American history occurs as the United States of America and the United States of Brazil and other South American nations sit down and discuss the situation between their two respective blocs. President Eisenhower and President Ramos post meeting describe the meeting as highly productive and both presidents are known to be exchanging personal correspondence. 

The Russian Civil war breaks out with various factions vying for control of the country with two main ones managing major positions. It is yet to be clear who will win.

I'll manage my own fucking war, thank you very much.

Don't be such a dick about it. How fucking hard is it?

The Celtic Union is officially recognized as the successor state to the United Kingdom. However, the forced union has left many Scottish people uneasy as they would rather be the dominant ones of the union. The British navy is split among various parties particularly the new union, India, and minorly to Brazil to replace combat losses.

Australia begins a military isolationist campaign beefing up many of its defences for the possibiltiy of an attack. Many are skeptical of such an action. New Zealand seeks closeness with Australia. The remnants of the royal navy which were not recalled make their way to the former dominions with only one carrier and one battleship pulling into port in dismal shape.

With the swift end to occupation in Canada, the former Canadian Parliament arranges for the independence of Quebec as had been set up by the Soviets. The Canadian government remains intact as it was, although without the representatives of Quebec and the Maritime Provinces. The nation of Newfoundland remains very close with Canada (possible reunion in the future) while Quebec seeks to disassociate itself from Canada, despite wishing to retain good relations.

France and Belgium, seeing the instantaneous fall of Britain and leaving them as the only non-Axis democracies, begin aligning themselves toward the United States.

English resistance groups begin to fight back against the German occupation groups, but the vast majority of attempts so far fail to make any meaningful difference.

A vast, otherworldly voice is heard all over the world, demanding a pancake. Many strange cults are formed around this. (Guys, no worries, I'm just bored since you DESTROYED MY NATION so I'll be posting these joke mod events. Unless you want they won't affect your nations.)

  • Brazil: The continued opening of major middle class housing continues where favelas were as the middle class now vastly outnumbers the lower classes as readily available jobs have led to a thriving job market with unemployment hovering around 4.2%. The Brazilian military continues to push its research projects with upgraded jet engines coming around and the first civilian jet liners being allowed for Brazilian airline companies but nearly only the most high end companies. The Brazilian companies - particularly auto manufacturers - continue to try to surpass a few luxury items manufactured in Europe such as cars. With a ready paved and well supported highway infrastructure the auto industry expands heavily with millions of affordable cars being purchased. The auto industry also exports to many of its various allies and trade partners worldwide. Brazil now has about 63 nukes and continues its research into miniaturized warheads as well as missile and rocketry research. A rocket is successfully tested. Brazil does manage to massively produce some of its first air-to-air missiles which are tested with resounding success and armed on many fighters in the navy and air force. The Brazilian government also continues to push larger population growth as well. The production of the Amazon states continues to expand with many of the previous lower class people finding good jobs in the area and able to afford cheap but well off middle class housing. This is considered to be a major triumph for the social status of Brazil. Influence on Bolivia continues with investment and the funding to the increasingly more influential federal power bringing pro-Brazil thoughts to many Bolivians. Brazil secretly funds Fidel Castro and many people who have switched to his political preferences as a Cuban nationalist. The Brazilian government officially begins the revamping of various naval ships to do scheduled maintenance and upgrades particularly doing this with destroyers, cruisers and carriers. This is about 65% complete. Due to the large immigration of Hispanics Brazil officially names Spanish as one of the country's official languages alongside Portuguese as a sign on comraderie with their Spanish brothers. The Brazilian undercover forces for Castro secretly reveal themselves as his security detail and show him nearly five attempts on his life. He keeps it a secret as well and tells nobody. Brazil's population reaches 64.3 million and growing. The population now with multiple South American economies heavily tied to each other begin seeing a greater unity form as now certain border states (with government approval) are allowing crossings without any documentation. The government of Brazil notes a greater movement known as the Federation movement beginning in Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, and both Paraguay and Uruguay.
    • Argentina: Argentina continues its close and intensive work on its economy and Infrastructure using one to help expand the other in an expanding game. Argentina's population grows to about 24.5 million and growing rapidly. Railways and highways between Argentina continue to connect more thoroughly with Brazilian infrastructure through Uruguay which has begun expansion of its own infrastructure. However, the Argentinians abstaining from huge detrimental expenditures and the end of the infamous changing of powers just years before has begun to gather large amounts of popular support from the regime looking to increase the public support more than it already is.  Argentina continues to invest heavily in Cuban agriculture and cash crops specifically offering to pay preferential prices for Cuban goods. Seeing the federal party as a foray into Bolivian politics and their already decent standing in Bolivia's political system, Argentina begins a major secretive funding operation into the Federal party. Argentina begins to work on poverty and the income inequality in the country bringing some notable economists and businessmen into a congressional meeting to talk about how income for poorer people can be raised a normal amount to account for inflation and other changes. The meeting is largely successful as the world, seeing less poverty, will show the true successes of its nation and its business relations with Brazil. The Argentinian military continues to help in the re-organization of poverty taking a stronger stance against squatters. Many of the slum areas now have been rebuilt from the ground up. The Federation movement begins in Argentina with their election into power shocking the usually static Argentine government. This is, however, not looked on with hostility. The movement is rumoured to be in league with Brazil's movement which has been organizing the greater movement toward unity recently. Argentina thanks Brazil for giving the Falklands, South Georgia and South Sandwich islands to their country sealing off one of the country's most longstanding claims to territory. The Argentine navy makes a purpose of settling the island and treating British well in all the islands (those that didn't leave). The Falklands naval base is repaired and used by Argentina's only carrier, the Buenos Aires.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela's economy continues to grow heavily with its oil industry taking off. The Venezuelan army also now with the majority of loyalty assured and its co-operation efforts with its allies has fully secured its country finally beating out the last of the rebels. The Venezuelan infrastructure - now thanks to some subcontracting - has linked up very well with its Brazilian counterpart. The Venezuelan population hits about 6.3 million and growing. The country's navy - while small - remains potent as it receives direct training from the most experienced Brazilian naval troops. The Venezuelan government also places an order for a battleship declaring that "it will not be the only Brazilian ally without a major navy." This buildup begins to show an intensified, almost fanatical support for Brazil in stark contrast to the country's previous issues  and loyalties regarding its civil war. The Venezuelans have organized their own Federation movement which has been largely co-ordinated equally with Brazilian and Argentine counterparts. They manage to take a few congressional seats in an election.
    • Uruguay: Uruguay's economy continues to increase now by a larger amount as infrastructure increases international traffic through the country in which various men have seen business and more investment opportunity in the country which begins to show a noticeable increase in the economy, as well as a noticeable drop in unemployment. The Uruguayan agricultural, manufacturing and banking sectors all increase moderately with banking becoming more lucrative as Uruguay opens up new high rise banks and large department stores in its capital as a showcase to the rest of the country what's to come. Uruguay, not needing to focus on its military, (while still lightly built upon and upgraded) begins fighting poverty in the country beginning to buy up many of the poverty striken areas and beginning a program that helps find people in poor neighborhoods find work, and be moved into new apartment buildings that are much nicer than their previous dwellings. The population of Uruguay reaches about 2.5 million. Uruguay's banking system officially becomes the most coveted and lucrative in South America and has made a name for itself in the United States as various rich businessmen and investors have deposited their money into the Uruguayan banks managing to reneg many of Switzerland's abilities of keeping the banking industry to itself. The Uruguayans look positively on the forming Federation movement with the president and other leading officials openly supporting it.
    • Paraguay: Paraguayan infrastructure begins to be linked up with surrounding nations' infrastructure for centralization purposes allowing for a much easier time of working on agriculture and resources as well as trade. The Paraguayan government begins to encourage large families - even offering modest subsidies to families who agree to have more than three children. The Paraguayan economy begins its own modest expansion at a healthy growth rate of about 3.5% and growing thanks to increasing trade and now the access to ports among other things to get Paraguayan goods. The government, seeing opportunities to bring Paraguay back to its former status, begins using its inclusion into the Brazilian sphere to get large economic expansion rights as well as foreign (mostly Argentinian and Brazilian) technicians in helping expand the communications infrastructure as well economic infrastructure. Paraguay manages to open friendly relations with Bolivia thanks to the Peru Incident. The general consensus that was previously left over that Argentina and Brazil were evil finally begins to wear off asteh increased econmic standing and its quality of life improving greatly has greatly improved their relations with Brazil, Argentina and their collective allies. Paraguay has once again gone down the track of being a truly economic power and envied nation due to its abilty to control its economy so precisely. The Paraguayan economists are highly sought after by businesses and the like to help the economies of various countries. The Paraguayan population reaches 1.4 million and growing thanks to various population expansion friendly policies. Paraguay regaining a status now seen since the 1800's pridefully declared its support for the Federation movement diverting large amounts of resources toward accelerating the movement. Some people look upon it with distaste. However, many believe they will retain the same amount of autonomy as states in the US do.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas show no major immigrant increase in Brazilians throughout the two areas but show some increases in Spanish Americans. The Guyanas also begin to to allow for some foreign investment reserving most of it for its South American neighbors. The major gold and aluminum industries, however, remain majority nationalized as they allow for the economic growth of both. Sugar and other cash crops also serve to boost the economy to a decent degree as well. The Guyanas regardless of their separation are able to grow closer as the Brazilian government and their friendliness in allowing the areas to deal with the Brazilian economic bloc has left a lasting good impression upon the people. The Guyanan peoples once again hope for the acquisition of Suriname but due to their lesser stature and the SADC's various other commitments the confederal council does not think the acquisition of Suriname is likely. The Guyanan Confed is able to convince its populace that becoming an eventual Federation member is ideal as long as Suriname is acquired.
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to do the trick as the money is used in the right ways. This has allowed the economy to come back in a small way. The government prepares to have elections in 1953 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially join Brazil's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 8.5 million. Peru while reluctantly apart of Brazil bloc undergoes elections in which pro-Brazil politicians remain in power. Peru manages to prevent the Federation group from gaining any major power in the country.
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The new country cautiously attempts forming the confederal government attempting to keep the new fragile nation alive.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country.
  • Angolan Nationalists: Armed campaign begins against colonial rule. Some disagreements occur, but the nationalist movements worked together.
    • Union of Peoples of Angola (soon to become the National Liberation Front of Angola): On 15 March, the Union of Peoples of Angola, or UPA, under the leadership of Holden Roberto, launched an incursion into Angola from its base in Zaïre, leading 4000 to 5000 militants. His forces took farms, government outposts, and trading centers, killing officials and civilians, most of them Ovimbundu "contract workers" from the Central Highlands. The UPA entered northern Angola and proceeded to massacre the civilian population killing 1000 whites and 6000 blacks (women and children included of both white European and black African descent) through cross-border attacks - it was the start of the Portuguese Colonial WarAsks help from Brazil.
      • Brazil Dip: We will agree to help you. However, please refrain from killing civilians.
      • Angolan Nationalists (UPA): We would stop killing civilians. Activity will now be focused on Portuguese bases in the area.
      • Spain Diplomacy: Out of goodwill for your cause, we send modern Spanish weapons to the rebels. We ask that you eventually help us in our secret campaign against Portugal.
    • People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola – Labour Party (MPLA): On December 10, 1953, in Estado Novo-ruled Portuguese Angola, the tiny underground Angolan Communist Party (PCA) merged with the Party of the United Struggle for Africans in Angola (PLUA) to form the People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola, with Viriato da Cruz, the President of the PCA, as Secretary General. Later other groups merged into MPLA, such as Movement for the National Independence of Angola (MINA) and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Angola (FDLA).
  • Celtic Union: Angered by the fact that the remnants of the British navy are heading to Australia, we immediately order a blockade of Wellington. Only Celtic shipping is allowed into the city. When it becomes clear that it will fail, however, it is called off. To help, a small force of 300,000 men are deployed in the Northern Island, while the south is occupied by 500,000. We demand that all British ships are given to India, the Celtic Union and Brazil if Australia wants New Zealand to be free. However, when it becomes clear we have no support, we pull out one-fourth of the total ships, but the blockade shall continue. Celtic troops will land later in the year. Meanwhile at home, elections are held to determine the new president of the Celtic Union. The winner is Erin O'Neil, with Scotsman William Bruce taking vice president, and Welshmen Aeron Baines becoming third chairman. We begin work on a nuclear weapons program of our own with the British nuclear weapons program, and use the scientists who were on the program. Modernisation begins over much of the CU, with roads being built across the countryside. Farmers are allowed to keep their lands, while trade routes are requested with Saudi Arabia. All loyalists are shipped off to Australia. Any Communists are shipped off to Norway. To help enforce the image that we are the UK succseor, we being rebuilding much of England, Scotland and Wales. We generously offer the British government Yorkshire as their only real state, as long as they are our vassal. To ensure peace, Cornwall and Scotland are cleared if resistance movements by Celtic Troops, and stable Parties are established representing both.
    • Swiss D: We request to open an embassy in your nation, and also that you man your embassy. We offer to build patrol boats, fighter jets and anti-aircraft guns and rifles to boost your military.
    • Celtic Union Dip: ​​​ We accept.
    • Swiss D: We send embassy personnel to your nation. As a gift of good will, we send the Celtic Union 24 EKW N-20 jets, 65,000 Karbiner Model 1940, 40,000 Luger Parabellum handguns, 500 MG 11 machine guns, and 20 Geneva-class patrol boats.
    • Saudi Dip: We accept.
    • You have absolutely no way of funding that many troops. Your max would be like 120,000 -Feud
    • This would have been ASB to the max. Good thing you pulled out.
    • Kinda guessed that it would be crossed out.
  • Switzerland: We demobilize our forces and replace the British Embassy with an embassy for the Celtic Union. We begin to send Red Cross personnel into the former United Kingdom. We continue to improve our banking system as Uruguay is becoming a threat. The Swiss Army looks into buying new trucks because most of theirs are too small for some jobs. They also buy 2000 MG 51 machine guns to replace the MG 11's. We buy 50 surplus PT boats from an undisclosed source, and refurbish them all. We place steel plate armor over the hull, remove the torpedo tubes, add an Oerlikon 35 mm cannon to the front, place two Oerlikon 20 mm cannons in place of the forward torpedo tubes, add one Oerlikon 20 mm FF anti-aircraft gun, and replace the rear torpedo tubes and rear machine guns with the new MG 51 machine gun.
  • Norway: We continue to pump out more oil from the Norwegian Sea. Our oil is the largest export of our country going to different countries around the world. We sell each barrel of oil for 20 dollars. More and more modernization is going on in our country.
    • Greenland: Scientists set up some bases to do secret experiments. We start to build railways across the land. Cities are being built up to look modern and urban. Along the coast we set up oil rigs to pump oil to sell and use.

  • The USSR continues the civil war. The Zhukovites take control of Leningrad while the Berians sweep south and enter Ukraine as far south and west as Chernobyl, Ukraine. They also make gains in Byelorussia, seizing Homyel, Rechytsa, and Mazyr. The Zhukovites dig in outside these cities, preparing for defensive warfare, while the advance continues in the north, moving toward Moscow and Novgorod. Stalingrad, however, is now under siege by the Berians and has become a site of much death. Zhukovites salvage important things in Petrograd uses the rocket technology from the NCKP (space program) to attack Berian lines in Moscow. Furthermore, Brezhnev has disappeared after escaping an assassination attempt from Beria. The war seems to have to clear victor at the moment, although Zhukov barely has numbers on his side.
  • The United States begins to incorporate Bermuda and the Bahamas into the United States, with any assets on the colony belonging to a British company would be replaced by American companies, while all British civilians on the islands have a choice to leave to Australia or become American citizens. A military and economic alliance is offered to France and Belgium, to further enhance the ties between the two nations and the United States. Military is expanded and the increase of technological developement continues. The research into rocketry and space technology, while all other research continues. The improvement of the economy and infrastructure continues. The United States relunctantly recongizes the Celtic Union. A trade agreement is offered to the SADC to expand trading relations.
  • Germany: The people of Germany are still celebrating their victory over the British and the liberation of their English brethren. Despite this, the High Command is worried about the performance of its military. The navy and amphibious assault went exactly as planned, but other factors were lacking. The air force did not perform as well against the RAF as predicted, and numerous Panzer VIs had mechanical trouble once on the ground. It is thought that only the advantages of stealth aircraft, surprise, and guided rockets and missiles are the things that let the Luftwaffe triumph and ensure victory for the Germans. As such, the issues with the armed forces are being addressed. The Panzer VI "Leopard" tanks are being inspected and given technical enhancements to improve their capability in the field. The Luftwaffe planes are also put under inspection to improve their capability and dogfighting ability. Rurhstahl missiles are made to replace any used by the Luftwaffe in the invasion. Production of war vehicles and weapons continues to replace any lost by Axis forces in the invasion of Britain. Von Braun moves to Kamerun to work on the German Rocket Project there, and he continues to work on the designs of the A7 and A8 rockets. A small carrier group along with more troops is sent to German Papua, to counter potential revenge attacks against the colony there. Investment in the colonies continues, and most people in the colonies now speak German as well as have some degree of education. The White population of the colonies still stays relatively low. The German government begins to create decolonization plans to ensure that the colonies remain stable and peaceful once the Germans leave, as the deadline is now only seven years away. Germany also supports Portugal in the struggles in Angola and its other colonies, insisting that the deadline that was agreed upon be respected. Germany also begins to supply the Royalists in Iran. The popularity of the Nazi party reaches an all-time high due to the success of the party in combating Germany's enemies. Following the proposition of other European leaders on a transcontinental pipeline, Albert Speer begins to consider the plan that would ship oil from Norway all the way down to Italy and Greece.
    • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich England: The occupation of England by the Axis forces continues. Medical treatment is offered to any who were hurt in the invasion, and special care is given to those who were hurt in atomic detonations. German Wehrmacht troops divide the country into seven military sectors in order to better maintain order in the area. Counterinsurgency operations begin in order to flush out any English rebels, and nightime raids are extremely effective because of the infrared scopes of the STG44. Young-bodied Englishmen are sent on intellectual tours of Germany and Europe, where they are taught useful skills that will help them get ahead in life and to better communicate with the occupation when they return home. This is actually done to reduce the number of English resisting occupation. In terms of government, the royal family is re-instated in a reduced role, and none of them are harmed. Oswald Mosely is put in charge as Prime Minister. Slowly but surely manufacturing businesses and factories spring up again to bring life to the English economy. An English military begins training to help the Germans in the occupation. An English Navy is also started up again, but is as of now only a few destroyers and lesser ships like minelayers. An English Air Force is held off for now, but is planned. Supplies are imported to England to help it rebuild from Germany by helicopter.
    • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich Niederlande: Dutch troops continue to assist in the occupation of England, but the majority of them return home along with the fleet. Production of war materials continues to replace anything that was lost in the invasion. Investment in the Guiana colony continues, but a growing number of politicians suggest that the Netherlands begins to withdraw from that area of the world to focus more on events closer to home. German becomes a major language taught in schools, as is English. Border patrols with Belgium increase should any potential conflict break out between the two countries. The government signs on to the English Youth Education Program.
    • Czechoslovakia: Military production of goods continues, and Czech troops return home. Some politicians begin suggesting to split the nation in two, and create two independent republics, but there are a lot of ideas going around at this time, including the idea of a monarchy. Despite this, none of these ideas gains significant traction as of now. Czechoslovakia signs on to the English Youth Education Program.
    • Yugoslavia: The government begins a buildup program to increase the power of the Yugoslavian navy. The armed forces return home after invading Britain.

1953.5

The USSR Civil war continues.

The English guerrilla tactics against the Germans - while wildly inefficient - have seen limited successes but it does not change the foothold of German power in the country.

The Celtic Union begins to undergo a financial crisis as its economy is not strong enough to handle the influx of ships taken from the British, They have no luck with their atomic program.

​​Wait, you mean I can't support a few destroyers, frigates and subs? You joking?

You're a fledgling economy with no previous experience of dealing with these ships, no major GDP growth, no major institutions and most of the country is wrecked from the war.

The US officially incorporates Bermuda and the Bahamas as territories.

Relations continue to improve between the US and Brazil.

What is now known as the 'Almighty Pancake God' continues his requests for pancakes, causing widespread horror and an influx of pancake cults. And suicide cults. And suicide-by-pancake cults.

  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The annexation of Thrace and Western Anatolia is started and Greeks begin to travel and settle into Trebizond and Pontus as well as Cilicia. Claims to Cyprus are started toward the British, to finish the Megali idea and the Enosis.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • ​Celtic Union:​ We begin searching for a way solve the crisis, and request trade routes with Brazil, the USA and Germany. Most of our ships undergo a period of retirement in a sense, and torpedo boats are deployed in case of Communist aggression. We would like to sell 50 armoured cars to Switzerland. We request embassies in the following nations: Japan, Brazil, Cuba, Australia, NPRC And Norway. We have some of our companies by business over seas in the Caribbean, and hope to make enough money to support the navy. Atomic research continues.
    • Swiss D: We accept.
  • Switzerland: We continue to improve our banking sector, and tourism, by funding construction of two ski resorts and giving tax breaks to SwissAir for five years. We begin to mass export watches and Swiss Army knives for the first time in a decade. The army buys 200,000 SIG P210 semiautomatic handguns to replace the Luger.
  • Angolan Nationalists: Continues armed struggle against the Portuguese colonial government.
    • FNLA (formerly the UPA): Asks help from Germany, as well as Brazil. Some of the party's members, including a commander named Jonas Savimbi, split away to form a new party, the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola, or the UNITA.
    •  UNITA: Following a split from the UPA, party leader Jonas Savimbi organizes the party on a liberal platform. As a consequence, we ask for aid from the United States and allies.
    • MPLA: Installs a provisional 'Soviet-style' peasant government in the remote southeastern part of the area. Shocked by the UNITA's action, we seek for Soviet, Norwegian and Chinese (NPRC) aid.
    • ​CU Dip: We request permission to send our army to Angola to help secure peace. We call upon others to aid us if it is allowed, and to do so if it is not.
    • Swiss D: We instead call for a UN Peacekeeper force to be deployed instead of individual nations. We offer to send in 200 medics.
    • CU Dip: ​We agree with the Swiss. We would like to have a UN peacekeeping force comprised of the USA, Germany, Brazil, Japan, and ourselves.
  • NPRC: After long years of isolation, we begin to focus on economic growth through the production of war materiel and automobiles to sell to others. We begin to prepare for war against Japan in secrecy and request that the USA and the USSR assist us for when the time comes to liberate Occupied China.
    • Swiss D: We offer humanitarian aid to the NPRC, and military advisors to prevent hostilities.
    • Chinese Diplomacy: We accept your offer BUT Japan must leave China due to the fact that it belongs to us.
    • Swiss D: Are you landlocked?
    • Chinese Diplomacy: No, but we shall not allow Japan to occupy China any longer.
  • Norway: We continue to pump out more oil from the Norwegian Sea. Our oil is the largest export of our country going to different countries around the world. We sell each barrel of oil for 20 dollars. More and more modernization is going on in our country.
    • Greenland: We set up port cities to export all of the fish we catch. Our scientists start to make prototype missiles in our secret bases.
  • Spain: To continue our process of modernization and industrialization, more industries are built up, including many forms of manufacturing. Military continues to be built up, and an upstart weapon company known as Almas-Ochoa or AO Firearms is asked by the government to produce a lightweight automatic rifle that is high-quality, among other weapons. Emphasis on producing high-quality infantry weapons is taken by the government, and production of tanks and aircraft slightly dips. Continuing the process of making Morocco more Spanish, many Catholic churches are established throughout Morocco. Some local Muslims are enraged, but progress continues. A ski resort is established in the high Atlas Mountains and Franco and many other high government officials go there at its opening. We continue to send supply aid to the Angolan rebels.
  • Brazil: The continued opening of major middle class housing continues where favelas were as the middle class now vastly outnumbers the lower classes as readily available jobs have led to a thriving job market with unemployment hovering around 3.5%. The Brazilian military continues to push its research projects with upgraded jet engines coming around and the first civilian jet liners being allowed for Brazilian airline companies but nearly only the most high end companies. The Brazilian companies - particularly auto manufacturers - continue to try to surpass a few luxury items manufactured in Europe such as cars. With a ready paved and well supported highway infrastructure the auto industry expands heavily with millions of affordable cars being purchased. The auto industry also exports to many of its various allies and trade partners worldwide. Brazil now has about 63 nukes and continues its research into miniaturized warheads as well as missile and rocketry research. A rocket is successfully tested with a mock warhead judging the weight needed. Brazil does manage to massively produce some of its first air-to-air missiles which are tested with resounding success and armed on many fighters in the navy and air force. The Brazilian government also continues to push larger population growth as well. The production of the Amazon states continues to expand with many of the previous lower class people finding good jobs in the area and able to afford cheap but well off middle class housing. This is considered to be a major triumph for the social status of Brazil. Influence on Bolivia continues with investment and the funding to the increasingly more influential federal power bringing pro-Brazil thoughts to many Bolivians. Brazil secretly funds Fidel Castro and many people who have switched to his political preferences as a Cuban nationalist. The Brazilian government officially begins the revamping of various naval ships to do scheduled maintenance and upgrades particularly doing this with destroyers, cruisers and carriers. This is about 65% complete. Due to the large immigration of Hispanics Brazil officially names Spanish as one of the country's official languages alongside Portuguese as a sign on comraderie with their Spanish brothers. The Brazilian undercover forces for Castro secretly reveal themselves as his security detail and show him nearly five attempts on his life. He keeps it a secret as well and tells nobody. Brazil's population reaches 64.3 million and growing. The population now with multiple South American economies heavily tied to each other begin seeing a greater unity form as now certain border states (with government approval) are allowing crossings without any documentation. The government of Brazil notes a greater movement known as the Federation movement beginning in Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, and both Paraguay and Uruguay. The Brazilian government reveals its first ten attack submarines. Brazil also secretly begins to incorporate nuclear power into sea going vehicles. Brazil officially unveils its first prototype nuclear reactor in Santiago Brazil and allows many foreign dignitaries to tour the facility.
    • Argentina:  Argentina continues its close and intensive work on its economy and Infrastructure using one to help expand the other in an expanding game. Argentina's population grows to about 24.5 million and growing rapidly. Railways and highways between Argentina continue to connect more thoroughly with Brazilian infrastructure through Uruguay which has begun expansion of its own infrastructure. However, the Argentinians abstaining from huge detrimental expenditures and the end of the infamous changing of powers just years before has begun to gather large amounts of popular support from the regime looking to increase the public support more than it already is.  Argentina continues to invest heavily in Cuban agriculture and cash crops specifically offering to pay preferential prices for Cuban goods. Seeing the federal party as a foray into Bolivian politics and their already decent standing in Bolivia's political system, Argentina begins a major secretive funding operation into the Federal party. Argentina begins to work on poverty and the income inequality in the country bringing some notable economists and businessmen into a congressional meeting to talk about how income for poorer people can be raised a normal amount to account for inflation and other changes. The meeting is largely successful as the world, seeing less poverty, will show the true successes of its nation and its business relations with Brazil. The Argentinian military continues to help in the re-organization of poverty taking a stronger stance against squatters. Many of the slum areas now have been rebuilt from the ground up. The Federation movement begins in Argentina with their election into power shocking the usually static Argentine government. This is, however, not looked on with hostility. The movement is rumoured to be in league with Brazil's movement which has been organizing the greater movement toward unity recently. Argentina thanks Brazil for giving the Falklands, South Georgia and South Sandwich islands to their country sealing off one of the country's most longstanding claims to territory. The Argentine navy makes a purpose of settling the island and treating British well in all the islands (those that didn't leave). The Falklands naval base is repaired and used by Argentina's only carrier, the Buenos Aires.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela's economy continues to grow heavily with its oil industry taking off. The Venezuelan army also now with the majority of loyalty assured and its co-operation efforts with its allies has fully secured its country finally beating out the last of the rebels. The Venezuelan infrastructure - now thanks to some subcontracting - has linked up very well with its Brazilian counterpart. The Venezuelan population hits about 6.3 million and growing. The country's navy - while small - remains potent as it receives direct training from the most experienced Brazilian naval troops. The Venezuelan government also places an order for a battleship declaring that "it will not be the only Brazilian ally without a major navy." This buildup begins to show an intensified, almost fanatical support for Brazil in stark contrast to the country's previous issues  and loyalties regarding its civil war. The Venezuelans have organized their own Federation movement which has been largely co-ordinated equally with Brazilian and Argentine counterparts. They manage to take a few congressional seats in an election.
    • Uruguay: Uruguay's economy continues to increase now by a larger amount as infrastructure increases international traffic through the country in which various men have seen business and more investment opportunity in the country which begins to show a noticeable increase in the economy, as well as a noticeable drop in unemployment. The Uruguayan agricultural, manufacturing and banking sectors all increase moderately with banking becoming more lucrative as Uruguay opens up new high rise banks and large department stores in its capital as a showcase to the rest of the country what's to come. Uruguay, not needing to focus on its military, (while still lightly built upon and upgraded) begins fighting poverty in the country beginning to buy up many of the poverty striken areas and beginning a program that helps find people in poor neighborhoods find work, and be moved into new apartment buildings that are much nicer than their previous dwellings. The population of Uruguay reaches about 2.5 million. Uruguay's banking system officially becomes the most coveted and lucrative in South America and has made a name for itself in the United States as various rich businessmen and investors have deposited their money into the Uruguayan banks managing to reneg many of Switzerland's abilities of keeping the banking industry to itself. The Uruguayans look positively on the forming Federation movement with the president and other leading officials openly supporting it.
    • Paraguay: Paraguayan infrastructure begins to be linked up with surrounding nations' infrastructure for centralization purposes allowing for a much easier time of working on agriculture and resources as well as trade. The Paraguayan government begins to encourage large families - even offering modest subsidies to families who agree to have more than three children. The Paraguayan economy begins its own modest expansion at a healthy growth rate of about 3.5% and growing thanks to increasing trade and now the access to ports among other things to get Paraguayan goods. The government, seeing opportunities to bring Paraguay back to its former status, begins using its inclusion into the Brazilian sphere to get large economic expansion rights as well as foreign (mostly Argentinian and Brazilian) technicians in helping expand the communications infrastructure as well economic infrastructure. Paraguay manages to open friendly relations with Bolivia thanks to the Peru Incident. The general consensus that was previously left over that Argentina and Brazil were evil finally begins to wear off asteh increased econmic standing and its quality of life improving greatly has greatly improved their relations with Brazil, Argentina and their collective allies. Paraguay has once again gone down the track of being a truly economic power and envied nation due to its abilty to control its economy so precisely. The Paraguayan economists are highly sought after by businesses and the like to help the economies of various countries. The Paraguayan population reaches 1.4 million and growing thanks to various population expansion friendly policies. Paraguay regaining a status now seen since the 1800's pridefully declared its support for the Federation movement diverting large amounts of resources toward accelerating the movement. Some people look upon it with distaste. However, many believe they will retain the same amount of autonomy as states in the US do.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas show no major immigrant increase in Brazilians throughout the two areas but show some increases in Spanish Americans. The Guyanas also begin to to allow for some foreign investment reserving most of it for its South American neighbors. The major gold and aluminum industries, however, remain majority nationalized as they allow for the economic growth of both. Sugar and other cash crops also serve to boost the economy to a decent degree as well. The Guyanas regardless of their separation are able to grow closer as the Brazilian government and their friendliness in allowing the areas to deal with the Brazilian economic bloc has left a lasting good impression upon the people. The Guyanan peoples once again hope for the acquisition of Suriname but due to their lesser stature and the SADC's various other commitments the confederal council does not think the acquisition of Suriname is likely. The Guyanan Confed is able to convince its populace that becoming an eventual Federation member is ideal as long as Suriname is acquired.
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to do the trick as the money is used in the right ways. This has allowed the economy to come back in a small way. The government prepares to have elections in 1953 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially join Brazil's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 8.5 million. Peru while reluctantly apart of Brazil bloc undergoes elections in which pro-Brazil politicians remain in power. Peru manages to prevent the Federation group from gaining any major power in the country.
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The new country cautiously attempts forming the confederal government attempting to keep the new fragile nation alive.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country.
    • The SADC accepts US trade from last turn.
  • Saudi Arabia: An end date is set for the end of the Kuwait Occupation for 1960 - if approved by the UN. The King Ibn Saud passes away, and his eldest son, Saud takes the throne. Saud and his brother, Faisal clash on ideas of leadership. Expansion of the military and industry continues in both North Yemen and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia also helps modernize Kuwait's military and industry.
  • United States: Military and infrastructure are improved. Research into all technologies continues. Space program and research continue. The economy remains one of the most powerful. Incorporation of Bermuda and the Bahamas continues. The same situation occurs in Mexico, where the economy is improved and infrastructure developed.
  • Germany: The people of Germany are still celebrating their victory over the British and the liberation of their English brethren. Despite this, the High Command is worried about the performance of its military. The navy and amphibious assault went exactly as planned, but other factors were lacking. The air force did not perform as well against the RAF as predicted, and numerous Panzer VIs had mechanical trouble once on the ground. It is thought that only the advantages of stealth aircraft, surprise, and guided rockets and missiles are the things that let the Luftwaffe triumph and ensure victory for the Germans.

The Luftwaffe planes are also put under inspection to improve their capability and dogfighting ability. Rurhstahl missiles are made to replace any used by the Luftwaffe in the invasion. Production of war vehicles and weapons continues to replace any lost by Axis forces in the invasion of Britain. Von Braun moves to Kamerun to work on the German Rocket Project there, and he continues to work on the designs of the A7 and A8 rockets. A small carrier group along with more troops is sent to German Papua, to counter potential revenge attacks against the colony there.

The popularity of the Nazi party reaches an all-time high due to the success of the party in combating Germany's enemies. Following the proposition of other European leaders on a transcontinental pipeline, Albert Speer begins to consider the plan that would ship oil from Norway all the way down to Italy and Greece. The pipeline begins construction in Germany, and Germany continues its work in thermonuclear fusion and nuclear missiles.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich England: The occupation of England by the Axis forces continues.

Saudi Arabia officially becomes one of the most influential states in the Middle East able to ease many tensions just by being involved in the negotiations. The country's oil profits have also proceeded to bring in a decent amount of money.

The Celtic Union's financial crisis eases moderately. The country's ability to field such a large navy, however, is still doubted. With the lack of Uranium the Union is unable to continue much mainline research.

Australia, now able to act largely independently, begins to modernize its economy and built up its own industry. Australia largely takes the seat of the former United Kingdom in the United Nations.

The Japanese occupation in China continues with the population arrayed against Japan and her allies being whittled down.

The true importance of oil begins to show its true colors in global affairs putting many nations with large supplies in powerful, or precarious, positions.

The United States detonates the world's first hydrogen bomb in the deserts of New Mexico.

The Italian colonies of Libya and Tunisia are granted independence.

Not until 1960, as was agreed.

The Great Pancake Church is formed in Germany, and then quickly spreads around the globe, getting converts from almost every religion. It gains over a 100,000 followers in one night after the voice is heard ranting about idiots who don't use enough maple syrup. Rumours begin to emerge, though, of a Waffle god ...

We did this once. If it happens again, there will be trouble. -MP

  • Saudi Arabia: Occupation of Kuwait continues, and with the current civil war in the USSR, we offer to support Palestine until it can get on its own two feet. Expansion of the oil industry continues, and expansion of Saudi Arabia's, North Yemen's and Kuwait's militaries continues at a slower pace than before. Saud and his brother continue to clash on ideas of leadership. In an effort to lower tensions, government reforms begin by creating a public school system among other things. While girls are allowed to go to "school" they learn little, other than how to manage a family and household, along with other rudimentary schooling. Males receive actual schooling.
    • Brazil/Venezuela Dip: As major oil producing nations as well, we offer to help establish an organization which handles global oil price controls in order to keep affordable and easily available oil flowing throughout the world. 
    • Saudi Arabia accepts.
  • Brazil: The continued opening of major middle class housing continues where favelas were as the middle class now vastly outnumbers the lower classes as readily available jobs have led to a thriving job market with unemployment hovering around 3.5%.

Brazil now has about 63 nukes and continues its research into miniaturized warheads as well as missile and rocketry research. A rocket is successfully tested with a mock warhead judging the weight needed. Brazil does manage to massively produce some of its first air-to-air missiles which are tested with resounding success and armed on many fighters in the navy and air force. The Brazilian government also continues to push larger population growth as well. The production of the Amazon states continues to expand with many of the previous lower class people finding good jobs in the area and able to afford cheap but well off middle class housing. This is considered to be a major triumph for the social status of Brazil. Influence on Bolivia continues with investment and the funding to the increasingly more influential federal power bringing pro-Brazil thoughts to many Bolivians. Brazil secretly funds Fidel Castro and many people who have switched to his political preferences as a Cuban nationalist. The Brazilian government officially begins the revamping of various naval ships to do scheduled maintenance and upgrades particularly doing this with destroyers, cruisers and carriers. This is about 65% complete. Due to the large immigration of Hispanics Brazil officially names Spanish as one of the country's official languages alongside Portuguese as a sign on comraderie with their Spanish brothers. The Brazilian undercover forces for Castro secretly reveal themselves as his security detail and show him nearly five attempts on his life. He keeps it a secret as well and tells nobody. Brazil's population reaches 67.7 million and growing. The population now with multiple South American economies heavily tied to each other begin seeing a greater unity form as now certain border states (with government approval) are allowing crossings without any documentation. The government of Brazil notes a greater movement known as the Federation movement beginning in Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, and both Paraguay and Uruguay. The Brazilian government reveals its first ten sttack submarines. Brazil also secretly begins to incorporate nuclear power into sea-going vehicles. Brazil officially unveils its first prototype nuclear reactor in Santiago, Brazil and allows many foreign dignitaries to tour the facility. Brazil successfully knocks down many international boundaries making it extremely easy to travel through all countries experiencing this type of Unity movement. The Brazilian government, seeing this, rather than oppose it continues to embrace it and begins sending envoys with the appropriate countries to discuss the possibility of forming an entirely new nation.
    • Argentina:  Argentina continues its close and intensive work on its economy and Infrastructure using one to help expand the other in an expanding game. Argentina's population grows to about 25.7 million and growing rapidly. Railways and highways between Argentina continue to connect more thoroughly with Brazilian infrastructure through Uruguay which has begun expansion of its own infrastructure. However, the Argentinians abstaining from huge detrimental expenditures and the end of the infamous changing of powers just years before has begun to gather large amounts of popular support from the regime looking to increase the public support more than it already is.  Argentina continues to invest heavily in Cuban agriculture and cash crops specifically offering to pay preferential prices for Cuban goods. Seeing the federal party as a foray into Bolivian politics and their already decent standing in Bolivia's political system, Argentina begins a major secretive funding operation into the Federal party. Argentina begins to work on poverty and the income inequality in the country bringing some notable economists and businessmen into a congressional meeting to talk about how income for poorer people can be raised a normal amount to account for inflation and other changes. The meeting is largely successful as the world, seeing less poverty, will show the true successes of its nation and its business relations with Brazil. The Argentinian military continues to help in the re-organization of poverty taking a stronger stance against squatters. Many of the slum areas now have been rebuilt from the ground up. The Federation movement begins in Argentina with their election into power shocking the usually static Argentine government. This is, however, not looked on with hostility. The movement is rumoured to be in league with Brazil's movement which has been organizing the greater movement toward unity recently. Argentina thanks Brazil for giving the Falklands, South Georgia and South Sandwich islands to their country sealing off one of the country's most longstanding claims to territory. The Argentine navy makes a purpose of settling the island and treating British well in all the islands (those that didn't leave). The Falklands naval base is repaired and used by Argentina's only carrier, the Buenos Aires.
    • Venezuela: Venezuela's economy continues to grow heavily with its oil industry taking off. The Venezuelan army also now with the majority of loyalty assured and its co-operation efforts with its allies has fully secured its country finally beating out the last of the rebels. The Venezuelan infrastructure - now thanks to some subcontracting - has linked up very well with its Brazilian counterpart. The Venezuelan population hits about 6.8 million and growing. The country's navy - while small - remains potent as it receives direct training from the most experienced Brazilian naval troops. The Venezuelan government also places an order for a battleship declaring that "it will not be the only Brazilian ally without a major navy." This buildup begins to show an intensified, almost fanatical support for Brazil in stark contrast to the country's previous issues  and loyalties regarding its civil war. The Venezuelans have organized their own Federation movement which has been largely co-ordinated equally with Brazilian and Argentine counterparts. They manage to take a few congressional seats in an election. The New Congress as well as Venezuela's new president make major inroads into knocking down national barriers with most countries that house a Federation unity movement.
    • Uruguay: Uruguay's economy continues to increase now by a larger amount as infrastructure increases international traffic through the country in which various men have seen business and more investment opportunity in the country which begins to show a noticeable increase in the economy, as well as a noticeable drop in unemployment. The Uruguayan agricultural, manufacturing and banking sectors all increase moderately with banking becoming more lucrative as Uruguay opens up new high rise banks and large department stores in its capital as a showcase to the rest of the country what's to come. Uruguay, not needing to focus on its military, (while still lightly built upon and upgraded) begins fighting poverty in the country beginning to buy up many of the poverty striken areas and beginning a program that helps find people in poor neighborhoods find work, and be moved into new apartment buildings that are much nicer than their previous dwellings. The population of Uruguay reaches about 2.6 million. Uruguay's banking system officially becomes the most coveted and lucrative in South America and has made a name for itself in the United States as various rich businessmen and investors have deposited their money into the Uruguayan banks managing to reneg many of Switzerland's abilities of keeping the banking industry to itself. The Uruguayans look positively on the forming Federation movement with the president and other leading officials openly supporting it. Major inroads are made with various nations that house a Federation unity movement.
    • Paraguay: Paraguayan infrastructure begins to be linked up with surrounding nations' infrastructure for centralization purposes allowing for a much easier time of working on agriculture and resources as well as trade. The Paraguayan government begins to encourage large families - even offering modest subsidies to families who agree to have more than three children. The Paraguayan economy begins its own modest expansion at a healthy growth rate of about 3.5% and growing thanks to increasing trade and now the access to ports among other things to get Paraguayan goods. The government, seeing opportunities to bring Paraguay back to its former status, begins using its inclusion into the Brazilian sphere to get large economic expansion rights as well as foreign (mostly Argentinian and Brazilian) technicians in helping expand the communications infrastructure as well economic infrastructure. Paraguay manages to open friendly relations with Bolivia thanks to the Peru Incident. The general consensus that was previously left over that Argentina and Brazil were evil finally begins to wear off asteh increased econmic standing and its quality of life improving greatly has greatly improved their relations with Brazil, Argentina and their collective allies. Paraguay has once again gone down the track of being a truly economic power and envied nation due to its abilty to control its economy so precisely. The Paraguayan economists are highly sought after by businesses and the like to help the economies of various countries. The Paraguayan population reaches 1.5 million and growing thanks to various population expansion friendly policies. Paraguay regaining a status now seen since the 1800's pridefully declared its support for the Federation movement diverting large amounts of resources toward accelerating the movement. Some people look upon it with distaste. However, many believe they will retain the same amount of autonomy as states in the US do. Paraguay's government continues to knock down national barriers becoming one of the first to make travel through Paraguay as easy as traveling through a state in the United States. The only remaining border requiring manning and watching is the Bolivian border for passport purposes.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas show no major immigrant increase in Brazilians throughout the two areas but show some increases in Spanish Americans. The Guyanas also begin to allow for some foreign investment reserving most of it for its South American neighbors. The major gold and aluminum industries, however, remain majority nationalized as they allow for the economic growth of both. Sugar and other cash crops also serve to boost the economy to a decent degree as well. The Guyanas regardless of their separation are able to grow closer as the Brazilian government and their friendliness in allowing the areas to deal with the Brazilian economic bloc has left a lasting good impression upon the people. The Guyanan peoples once again hope for the acquisition of Suriname but due to their lesser stature and the SADC's various other commitments the confederal council does not think the acquisition of Suriname is likely. The Guyanan Confed is able to convince its populace that becoming an eventual Federation member is ideal as long as Suriname is acquired. The Confederation officially asks for Suriname from Germany as well as their Antilles possessions to be ceded to the appropriate authorities. Germany will be allowed to retain their base and costs of reorganization will be covered
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to do the trick as the money is used in the right ways. This has allowed the economy to come back in a small way. The government prepares to have elections in 1953 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially join Brazil's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 8.7 million. Peru while reluctantly apart of Brazil bloc undergoes elections in which pro-Brazil politicians remain in power. Peru manages to prevent the Federation group from gaining any major power in the country. However, regardless, a small Federation group is becoming extremely influential with the countries lower denizens. 
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The new country cautiously attempts forming the confederal government attempting to keep the new fragile nation alive.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country.
  • Angolan Nationalists: Armed conflict continues. But the people wanted to have a UN Security force in the country, to avoid ideological clashes.
    • FNLA: Proclaims the creation of the Republic of Cabinda in the Cabinda exclave, and the Independent State of Angola on the northwestern side of Angola proper, as a puppet of Cabinda.
    • MPLA: Proclaims the creation of the People's Democratic Republic of Angola, controlling the inland east and southeast corner of the country.  
    • UNITA: Creates the Federal Republic of Angola, that controls the coastal and central regions of the country.

FYI: I  won't be around for some time this week because I have to go back to school. I'll post if I have vacant time. IstocnoSarajevo (talk) 14:08, January 5, 2014 (UTC)


Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The annexation of Thrace and Western Anatolia is started and Greeks begin to travel and settle into Trebizond and Pontus as well as Cilicia. Claims to Cyprus are started toward the British, to finish the Megali idea and the Enosis.

    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • ​Celtic Union: ​We decide to field one-third of the navy, or around that. Rebuilding begins in the most devastated areas, and we continue to engage English guerrillas. As we continue stabilizing Scotland and Cornwall, we have our companies buy up businesses overseas in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. We demand that a UN peacekeeping force of Japan, Germany, Brazil, the USA, and ourselves is deployed in Angola to support UNITA. Modernization of Wales and Scotland continues, along with Cornwall. We have our subs, (those we can field) secretly patrol the Pacific to spy on Japanese naval movements. A growing amount of pancake cults and suicide-by-pancake cults sees the government execute these cults in secret.
    • Brazil Dip: Due to Brazilian interests in the area we offer more lucrative buyouts of Dominican and Haitian companies undercutting Celtic Union attempts at gaining any sort of foreign influence in the Americas. We also officially demand that the Celtic union stay out of the Americas completely. Both Continents contain recognized major powers with recognized spheres of influence.
    • American Dip: The United States agrees with Brazil and we also demand that the CU keep out of the Western Hemisphere.
    • CU Dip: We will stay out of the Western Hemisphere if you give us a small amount of uranium. Not enough to make a bomb. We give our word not use any weapons we make, as most of the world may turn againest us.
    • Brazil Dip: We re-iterate, stay out of the Western Hemisphere, period. This is not a compromise that can be done. This is a demand which you will carry out. You're in my backyard and you will play by my rules.
    • CU Dip: We request that Germany and Japan back us on being allowed to do business in the Western Hemisphere. SECRET: Plans are made to invade Puerto Rico and Barbados. All that is needed is for Germany and Japan to support us. 
    • Brazil Dip: We warn the CU that any attempt at breaching the spheres of Influence in the Western Hemisphere will be met with nothing but hostility, We once again re-iterate. Stay out of the West or face the consequences.
    • Saudi Arabia: asks that diplomats from Brazil, the US and the Celtic Union enter talks to lower the tensions before things escalate to military conflict.
    • The United States: tells the Celtic Union that Japan is my ally and one of Brazil's friends. We also warn that any hostilies against Brazil would be consider a declaration of war against the United States. Thus, we suggest you back off before blood is spilt.
    • CU Dip: We would like to point out that we are trying to establish our economy and increase our standing in the international community. We call upon Irish immigrants to supports us in the USA and Brazil. We will send diplomats to Washington to resolve the Celtic-Caribbean business crisis. We offer the following terms: 1: The Celtic Union will be allowed to buy business in the Caribbean at a limit decided by USA and Brazil. 2: All companies from all nations currently involved in the crisis shall be allowed to trade with one another freely. 3: Any US, Brazil and Celtic companies will be allowed to buy a limited amount of business in each country to be decided at a later date.
    • Brazil Dip: Haiti and the Dominican Republic are large areas of interests to Brazil and its allies. in two predominantly Black nations we refuse to allow countries such as the Celtic union who shares no political or social history with these people to exploit them further. The US and Brazil both have significant African American populations both of which come from the same roots as these people do. Due to the fact the US and Brazil are in agreement on this we must request again that the Celtic Union defer. If the nation of Paraguay can become one of the envies of South America without wider global trade then the CU can develop its economy heftily and be self-sufficient as Paraguay once was.
    • Swiss D: If the Celtic Union continues attempts to forcibly insert itself into foreign territory, and create uproar over it, and possibly cause war, then the Swiss government can not sustain any partnership, or trade agreement with the Celts, due to national interests in keeping the peace. We agree with Saudi Arabia's proposal, and push to find a peaceful solution.
    • Saudi Arabia: offers to have a meeting of ourselves, the Celtic Union, Brazil and the US in the Saudi capital.We also invite the Swiss, German and Japanese governments to join us, either as observers or participants. We also state that if military conflict breaks out between the two sides, Saudi Arabia will side with Brazil and the US as both have warned the Celtic Union about the consequences.
  • Switzerland: We continue to build up our economy to a quicker recovery. To stabilize our oil needs for electricity, we begin to construct hydroelectric dams on the Rhine (2), the Aar (6), the Rhone (3), and the Saane (4). The first set of five will be complete in two years, the second set of five will be complete in three years, and the third set in five years. The army buys another 300,000 SIG P210 handguns. Because we are unable to purchase any tanks, we begin to design our own main battle tank, tentatively named Panzer 54. It will have a 105 mm cannon, and two MG 51 machine guns mounted. The designs and first prototype will be delivered in six months. The Swiss government continues with a pro-neutrallity outlook, but many in the armed forces (especially higher ranking generals) push for the Swiss government to boost military spending and possibly ally wth Germany and Brazil.
  • Norway: We continue to pump out more oil from the Norwegian Sea. Our oil is the largest export of our country going to different countries around the world. We sell each barrel of oil for 15 dollars. More and more modernization is going on in our country.
    • Greenland: We set up port cities to export all of the fish we catch. Our scientists start to make prototype missiles in our secret bases.
    • 20 dollars a barrel is way too much at this point acording to this and this. If you are using a currency other than dollars then you should specify so. I can't change this because I'm not a mod, but I would like a mod to look at this.
    • Please look up a legitimate price for the time so normal countries aren't undercutting you left and right. Your economy would collapse if you sold for that much. -Feud
    • I changed it to 15 dollars, OK? One of the websites you gave me said at this time it was 16 dollars so I went around that number, OK? - Shadow
  • The civil war in the USSR continues. The Zhukovites capture Moscow in the north and Stalingrad in the south, and the Berians are now left to Novgorod as their last major city in Russia proper, although they continue to make gains in Ukraine and Belarus. AK-47s see widespread use as war is now occurring in small towns and villages between civilians.
  • Spain: Military continues to be built up with an emphasis on foot soldiers armed with high-quality weapons. AO firearms takes the Soviet AK-47 as inspiration for their new "Ultra Light Machine Gun" or ULMG as the project is called. Catholicism is spread throughout Morocco, and the new ski resort sees major popularity from Europeans. Agents continue to be sent into Portugal, and discord is sowed between the Portuguese, and their colonies. We begin to create a Pan-Iberian propaganda campaign designed to sway Spainards in favor of unification with the Portuguese.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • South Africa:The economic program (mining, trading, and shipping) continues and the country stabilizes from its economic problem from not trading with the Commonwealth anymore. Instead we trade with our neighbors Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique, Lesotho, and Swazali. With this trade money we invest in industrial projects such as mining, roads and factories in these other nations which give us further money for education to establish hospitals, scientific centers, and more schools. With this investment, influence grows on our neighbors and we invite them to the South African Federation. We also continue to give aid to Angola in their struggle for independence and thus influence them as well. Meanwhile, the anti-apartheid movement grows and continues to be lead by Nelson Mendela with the Nationalist Party still debating what to do about him.  
  • Commonwealth of Australia: The increased amount of freedom has allowed the commonwealth to break free from any previous obligations as national elections put in place the Australian Nationalist Party. The ANP appoints Mark Sotherbe as prime minister. The navy is ordered to be upgraded by the new, stronger national government. An open referendum is floated about forming a Commonwealth of Oceania with New Zealand. New Zealanders are reminded of the potential economic benefits for both nations, as well as offering equal status and participation in the drafting of the new Federal Constitution. Jame Woodall, is appointed as head of the newly formed Australian Intellegence Agency. Fredrick Ross, a low level auto engineer from GB fled from Germany and forms the Australian Auto Group and revives the dead Aston Martin line. Trade is increased to nearby nations. Diplomats travel to Japan to establish formal relations. Nuclear research is continued, though heavily stalled by the events of the war. Research into sending objects into space are proposed. Early plans to form an Oceanic Space Programme are considered.
  • You are the UKANZ, the successor to the dead GB.
  • He's doing this to be completely official about it.
  • The United States continues to expand its military, as well as technologically improv it. President Eisenhower is impressed by the hydrogen bomb and orders for more test. The infrastructure is improved, while the economy remains the world 's largest economy. Incorporation of Bermuda and the Bahamas continue, while the American space program continues. The infrastructure and economy of Mexico is improved.
  • Germany: The people of Germany are still celebrating their victory over the British and the liberation of their English brethren. Despite this, the High Command is worried about the performance of its military. The navy and amphibious assault went exactly as planned, but other factors were lacking. The air force did not perform as well against the RAF as predicted, and numerous Panzer VIs had mechanical trouble once on the ground. It is thought that only the advantages of stealth aircraft, surprise, and guided rockets and missiles are the things that let the Luftwaffe triumph and ensure victory for the Germans. As such, the issues with the armed forces are being addressed. The Panzer VI "Leopard" tanks are being inspected and given technical enhancements to improve their capability in the field. The Luftwaffe planes are also put under inspection to improve their capability and dogfighting ability. Rurhstahl missiles are made to replace any used by the Luftwaffe in the invasion. Production of war vehicles and weapons continues to replace any lost by Axis forces in the invasion of Britain. Von Braun moves to Kamerun to work on the German Rocket Project there, and he continues to work on the designs of the A7 and A8 rockets. A small carrier group along with more troops is sent to German Papua, to counter potential revenge attacks against the colony there. Investment in the colonies continues, and most people in the colonies now speak German as well as have some degree of education. The White population of the colonies still stays relatively low. The German government begins to create decolonization plans to ensure that the colonies remain stable and peaceful once the Germans leave, as the deadline is now only seven years away. Germany also supports Portugal in the struggles in Angola and its other colonies, insisting that the deadline that was agreed upon be respected. Germany also begins to supply the Royalists in Iran. The popularity of the Nazi party reaches an all-time high due to the success of the party in combating Germany's enemies. Following the proposition of other European leaders on a transcontinental pipeline, Albert Speer begins to consider the plan that would ship oil from Norway all the way down to Italy and Greece. The pipeline begins construction in Germany, and Germany continues its work in thermonuclear fusion and nuclear missiles.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich England: The occupation of England by the Axis forces continues. Medical treatment is offered to any who were hurt in the invasion, and special care is given to those who were hurt in atomic detonations. German Wehrmacht troops divide the country into seven military sectors in order to better maintain order in the area. Counterinsurgency operations begin in order to flush out any English rebels, and nightime raids are extremely effective because of the infrared scopes of the STG44. Young-bodied Englishmen are sent on intellectual tours of Germany and Europe, where they are taught useful skills that will help them get ahead in life and to better communicate with the occupation when they return home. This is actually done to reduce the number of English resisting occupation. In terms of government, the royal family is re-instated in a reduced role, and none of them are harmed. Oswald Mosely is put in charge as Prime Minister. Slowly but surely manufactoring businesses and factories spring up again to bring life to the English economy. An English military begins training to help the Germans in the occupation. An English Navy is also started up again, but is as of now only a few destroyers and lesser ships like minelayers. An English Air Force is held off for now, but is planned. Supplies are imported to England to help it rebuild from Germany by helicopter. Resistance groups grow in northern England. The Sword of Saint George (SSG) is a monarchist rebel group, while the English Republican Army (ERA) is a Republican-Communist rebel group. Both groups are in the north near York and have created some havoc for English and German troops.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich Niederlande: Dutch troops continue to assist in the occupation of England, but the majority of them return home along with the fleet. Production of war materials continues to replace anything that was lost in the invasion. Investment in the Guiana colony continues, but a growing number of politicians suggest that the Netherlands begins to withdraw from that area of the world to focus more on events closer to home. German becomes a major language taught in schools, as is English. Border patrols with Belgium increase should any potential conflict break out between the two countries. The government signs on to the English Youth Education Program.
  • Czechoslovakia: Military production of goods continues, and Czech troops return home. Some politicians begin suggesting to split the nation in two, and create two independent republics, but there are a lot of ideas going around at this time, including the idea of a monarchy. Despite this, none of these ideas gains significant traction as of now. Czechoslovakia signs on to the English Youth Education Program.
  • Yugoslavia: The government begins a buildup program to increase the power of the Yugoslavian navy. The armed forces return home after invading Britain. The government also begins to ensure an economic recovery program, to ensure that the economy is stable. The government also begins taking steps toward easing conflict between the different provinces and the king takes a tour of them all to support that endeavor.

1954.5

The Soviet civil war still continues.

India's civil war for the most part has ended with the nation beginning to rebuild on a larger scale.

The Federation movement in South America continues to grow between Brazil and its bloc.

The People's Republic of Iran is formed, but shunned by its neighboring Middle Eastern nations once more. The war with the royalists and anti-Communists continues.

The conflict in Angola continues, but Portugal adopts a very successful counter-insurgency plan to limit the power of the rebels before the slated decolonization.

Pancake and waffle cults expand with young people seeing it as a way to escape the shackles of government.

All right, not cool, Feud. Not cool. I MAKE THE PMES!!!

^ That event was not me -Feud

Next person to make an event like this will be banned from the game.

  • Celtic Union: Following the creation of the Commonwealth of Oceania, we back down from the Celtic-Caribbean crisis, and have our subs patrol Oceania. The industry is made to go into overdrive, while our intelligence is assigned to spy upon the Commonwealth. Hoping to challenge the Commonwealth, we being buying up companies in the Soloman Islands and Eygpt. Modernization of Wales and Scotland continue, and English guerrillas are hunted down. Stabilization of Scotland and Cornwall continues. Influence begins on Israel and Syria. Reverse engineering of jet aircraft and tanks begins. The atomic program continues with the objective of creating uranium. The government begins attempting to solidfy control. Pancake and Waffle cults are banned. Anyone caught practicing them will have life imprisonment. 
    • ​Saudi Arabia: Israel is part of Palestine, which is currently under Saudi occupation. As such, we request that you do not push your influence of Israel. Any attempt to vassalize Palestine will be seen by an act of aggression. Saudi Arabia will not intervene on Celtic actions in Syria so long as they stay out of our sphere of influence. 
    • CU Dip: Very well.
  • Saudi Arabia: Reforms continue. Kuwait's industry improves with Saudi aid. We send aid to the royalists in Iran, and begin to influence Oman. Military and infrastructure are improved in Saudi Arabia, North Yemen and Kuwait. We also ask for an alliance with the UKANZ.
    • Oceanic Dip: The Commonwealth of Oceania (formerly the UKANZ) accepts. We would also like to establish formal trade relations with Arabia.
    • Saudi Arabia: We accept. We also ask for the formerly British naval designs. SECRET: We ask Oceania, Brazil and the US to enter an alliance against Celtic expansion.
    • Oceanic Dip: We accept both the alliance and the naval designs.SECRET: We offer to sell large amounts of uranium.
    • Saudi Arabia: The King respectively declines the offer.
    • In regards to the new map, shouldn't North Yemen be green as well? I vassalized it a few turns ago.
    • Yes. This will be corrected.
  • Norway: We continue to pump out more oil from the Norwegian Sea. Our oil is the largest export of our country going to different countries around the world. We sell each barrel of oil for 15 dollars. More and more modernization is going on in our country.
    • Greenland: We set up port cities to export all of the fish we catch. Our scientists start to make prototype missiles in our secret bases.
  • Commonwealth of Oceania: The Australian Intelligence Agency begins to monitor the Celtic Union's radio transmissions as well as covertly spying in the Union. The Union is flagged as a potential hostile party. The navy continues to grow with several new subs being constructed to bolster the small amount of British subs that fell into Australian hands. The Commonwealth of Oceania continues consolidating power in the new territories. The Federalist Constitution is ratified by all member states. Diplomats sail to the Federation in South America to open up diplomatic channels with the nation. Realizing that Oceania's position is still unstable, the President issues an executive decree that calls for a public draft to be instituted if Oceania is threatened by a foreign party. (Do we have any nukes or must I make them?). The Australian Auto Group successfully manages to sell its first car, the Aston Martin DB1. Nuclear research continues with the possibility of using the research to construct nuclear power plants. Oceania begins to experiment with rocket propulsion in hopes that it can use these devices to one day reach the stars, though research is slow and there have been many accidents. Submarines secretly begin to spy in the English Channel in part to watch the slightly distrusted Celtics. They are ordered not to be seen or engage on any ship. War is not a priority of the Commonwealth at this time. In other news, Oceanic Airways is established as the first large passenger service in Australia. There is a small baby boom due to the end of the war and the newfound optimism of the Oceanic peoples. Plans to construct a modern opera house in Sydney are discussed. Australia offers to sell uranium to responsible world powers like Germany. The Celtic Union is asked to back down on the Soloman Islands, they are sovereign Oceanic territory. If you refuse, war may insue.
    • Federation Dip: We agree to open up diplomatic channels with Oceania.
    • CU Dip: We refuse to back down again, and announce our intentions to expand the military. We begin building our own main battle tanks known as the Boru 5 - a tank that boasts an 88mm gun. It is decided to ask Germany to support us. While requesting that, we are allowed to expand our influence to smaller nations so as to improve them into more democratic nations.
    • Federation Dip: We once again warn the CU against any involvement in politics way outside its attempt at controlling. The former British possessions in Oceania are all part of the Commonwealth and we recognize their claim. Repeated attempts at re-inforcing or retaking your previous overlords influence, who you hated so much, will risk the provocation of war and will involve the full force of the Federation up to and including the occupation of the CU. As an ally to Germany we also make it known that they should handle this headstrong but unimportant nation quickly before the Federation must make movements into areas that many Europeans may look at with disdain. We do not wish to harm our beneficial relationship.
    • Oceanic D: The Solomon Islands are ours. Any more attempts to seize them or otherwise hamper our influence will be met with full force. We will not allow some fly-speck nation travel to the otherside of the wrold and act like Imperialist scum. We are a sovereign nation and WILL attack if you do not back down. You have been warned.
    • American D: We announce the United States' support for Oceania in regards to the CU's attempt to expand its influence. We also tell the Celtic Union to learn its place in world affairs and that it has no business in the Solomon Islands. Stay in Europe.
    • CU Dip: Erin O'Neil has this to say to Oceanic, "The Commonwealth of Oceanic has taken the British government into its care. We are not imperalist scum. The British government is the imperalist scum - the same scum that had conquered Ireland, Scotland and Wales so many years ago, and ruled us with an iron fist. Many were the innocent bloodshed. But the backing of Brazil and the USA has meant we no longer wish to destroy that government at the moment. However, at the first sign of provocation, we will take the fight to Oceanic!"  
  • Federation of the Americas: The nations of Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay all highly fond of unifying into a singular nation hold a referendum along with both Paraguay, the Guyanan Confederation and Venezuela. While Paraguay and Venezuela agree that they will work toward joining the new nation. Guyana requests that the negotiations over Suriname be initiated. The newly formed Federation immediately begins major centralization projects and officially forms a transitional governmental council until the nation is able to elect a president. The nations' militaries are fully unified into a force of around 1.3 million with many second class units from all nations being sent into the reserves with the ability to take on real jobs within the new countries economy. The centralization of the military and research projects begins. However, with a current outnumbering of Portuguese to Spanish peoples, Brazil votes to allow for two houses like the United States with one representing population, and another representing all of the Federation states equally. In order to help breach some of the language gaps the education system is required that both Portuguese and Spanish are taught in schools. The Federation also agrees to uphold any longstanding foreign relations with previous allies and agrees to uphold the previous SADC wide trade agreement with the United States. The Federation reorganizes its armed forces to spread them more equally throughout the major ethnicities and reorganizes the military industrial complex in order to have it more spread through the new country. With a unified industry the Country is officially an high scale Industrial rival to the United States and most other top Industrial powers. The Federation's unified GDP is also a rival for German and American economies with the GDP just below the American's and pretty much on par with the German GDP. With a population of just under 100 million the Federation and its population is expected to grow exponentially with the Hispanic population to be Equal to the Lusophone population with the inclusion of Venezuela and Paraguay in the next few years. The Federation also begins organizing elections. The media reports surprisingly that an extremely popular bi-lingual candidate is one of the top runners for the Presidency. The Economic currency issue begins to be solved with a large replacement buy-out of currency to take place over ten years to replace pesos and reals with the Federation dollar in order to have a singular currency. The current transitional government is centrally located in Montevideo which is in major talks with Paraguay and Venezuela for joining as well. Secretly the council and various other high members in this transitional members agree that in order to gaurentee the joining of certain nations states rights must be respected and that a new capital must be selected and built. The secret council chooses the Chaco region of Paraguay to develop the new capital in for its low population density and its unifying potential for most of the nations expected to be in the Federation. The Federation continues Brazil's and Argentina's previous efforts in Cuba beginning to influence election in the country in favor of the Federation. Two Federation battle groups - one Argentine and another Brazilian - meet at the recently seized Ascension island (granted during the treaty) for the first time and establish a Federation base on the island and in a historic moment photograph and capture the first raising of the Federation flag over the new nation's territory. The flag is manufactured to be flown over all the major cities and areas with state flags being flown just below it taking from the US flag traditions. The Federation requests that its ally of Germany exchange control of Suriname and the Antilles to the Guyanan Confederation, and the Lesser Antilles Confederation respectively. The Federation also with expanded resources to its name begins the investment into new naval ships as for the nest 20 or 30 years in an attempt to stay modern with its navy.
  • Oceanic D: Australia requests to purchase 20 destroyers and 25 frigates to help grow our navy.
  • Federation Dip: Due to the large excess with which we find ourselves we would gladly sell you this amount of ships, due to the nature of our Federation the amount of ships inherited from various nations has become ineffective cost wise to keep.
    • '​'Venezuela: Venezuela's economy continues to grow heavily with its oil industry taking off. The Venezuelan army also now with the majority of loyalty assured and its co-operation efforts with its allies has fully secured its country finally beating out the last of the rebels. The Venezuelan infrastructure - now thanks to some subcontracting - has linked up very well with its Brazilian counterpart. The Venezuelan population hits about 7.3 million and growing. The country's navy - while small - remains potent as it receives direct training from the most experienced Brazilian naval troops. The Venezuelan government also places an order for a battleship declaring that "it will not be the only Brazilian ally without a major navy." This buildup begins to show an intensified, almost fanatical support for Brazil in stark contrast to the country's previous issues  and loyalties regarding its civil war. The Venezuelans have organized their own Federation movement which has been largely co-ordinated equally with Brazilian and Argentine counterparts. They manage to take a few congressional seats in an election. The New Congress as well as Venezuelas new president make major inroads into knocking down national barriers with most countries that house a Federation unity movement. Venezuela agrees that they will eventually join the Federation. However, it needs more time to set up its economy in order join the Federation on good terms.
    • Paraguay: Paraguayan infrastructure begins to be linked up with surrounding nations' infrastructure for centralization purposes allowing for a much easier time of working on agriculture and resources as well as trade. The Paraguayan government begins to encourage large families - even offering modest subsidies to families who agree to have more than three children. The Paraguayan economy begins its own modest expansion at a healthy growth rate of about 3.5% and growing thanks to increasing trade and now the access to ports among other things to get Paraguayan goods. The government, seeing opportunities to bring Paraguay back to its former status, begins using its inclusion into the Brazilian sphere to get large economic expansion rights as well as foreign (mostly Argentinian and Brazilian) technicians in helping expand the communications infrastructure as well economic infrastructure. Paraguay manages to open friendly relations with Bolivia thanks to the Peru Incident. The general consensus that was previously left over that Argentina and Brazil were evil finally begins to wear off asteh increased econmic standing and its quality of life improving greatly has greatly improved their relations with Brazil, Argentina and their collective allies. Paraguay has once again gone down the track of being a truly economic power and envied nation due to its abilty to control its economy so precisely. The Paraguayan economists are highly sought after by businesses and the like to help the economies of various countries. The Paraguayan population reaches 1.5 million and growing thanks to various population expansion friendly policies. Paraguay regaining a status now seen since the 1800's pridefully declared its support for the Federation movement diverting large amounts of resources toward accelerating the movement. Some people look upon it with distaste. However, many believe they will retain the same amount of autonomy as states in the US do. Paraguay's government continues to knock down national barriers becoming one of the first to make travel through Paraguay as easy as traveling through a State in the United States. The only remaining border requiring manning and watching is the Bolivian border for passport purposes. The Paraguayan government, intent on keeping many of its cultural heritage and other things, is staunchly hard headed and stubborn about joining the Federation and presses the major issues of states rights versus federal rights as well as the location for the capital for the Federation.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas show no major immigrant increase in Brazilians throughout the two areas but show some increases in Spanish Americans. The Guyanas also begin to to allow for some foreign investment reserving most of it for its South American neighbors. The major gold and aluminum industries, however, remain majority nationalized as they allow for the economic growth of both. Sugar and other cash crops also serve to boost the economy to a decent degree as well. The Guyanas regardless of their separation are able to grow closer as the Brazilian government and their friendliness in allowing the areas to deal with the Brazilian economic bloc has left a lasting good impression upon the people. The Guyanan peoples once again hope for the acquisition of Suriname but due to their lesser stature and the SADC's various other commitments the confederal council does not think the acquisition of Suriname is likely. The Guyanan Confed is able to convince its populace that becoming an eventual Federation member is ideal as long as Suriname is acquired. The Confederation officially asks for Suriname from Germany as well as their Antilles possessions to be ceded to the appropriate authorities. Germany will be allowed to retain their base and costs of reorganization will be covered
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to do the trick as the money is used in the right ways. This has allowed the economy to come back in a small way. The government prepares to have elections in 1953 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially join Brazil's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 8.7 million. Peru while reluctantly apart of Brazil bloc undergoes elections in which pro-Brazil politicians remain in power. Peru manages to prevent the Federation group from gaining any major power in the country. However, regardless, a small Federation group is becoming extremely influential with the countries lower denizens. 
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The new country cautiously attempts forming the confederal government attempting to keep the new fragile nation alive. The Antilles Confederation supports the creation of the Federation.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica remains impartial to the creation of the Federation.
      • Oceanic Dip: The Commonwealth would like to invest in industry and the sugar cane industry.
      • Jamaican Dip: We Agree.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • Spain: We support a South American Federation, stating that "South America and the whole Latin sphere will be stronger that way". In a bold move, Franco personally states that he wants Morocco fully annexed before decolonization. The ULMG-1 is released. Capable of firing in both fully-automatic and semi-automatic modes, it is stated that this is Spain's response to the AK-47. We will sell weapons to whoever wishes to buy them. AO Firearms begins to work on other projects. Meanwhile, the government, seeing the success of Germany's tank program, begins to create our own. The "Iberization" of Morocco continues and more heavy industries spring up over Spain.
    ULMG-1

    The ULMG-1 firearm. Standard issue of the Spanish military.

    • Swiss D: We request to buy ten ULMG-1 rifles for our special forces.
    • Spanish Diplomacy: We accept.
  • Switzerland: The army receives the first Panzer 54 tank, and after evaluations, decides to order 70. We retire the Panzer III tanks to the militia, and put the Panzer I's tanks up for target practice. The government forms the Alpine Special Forces Unit, a counter terror team. The first unit has 25 members in it. They are armed with SIG P210 handguns, a new Submachine gun, the MP-55, and suppressed Karbiner Model 1931 sniper rifles.
  • The USSR remains in a state of war. The Berians are retreating south, but they also expand east and west while they do it. Novgorod is devastated in a long three week battle and many lives are lost. The center of the Berian strength is now Chernobyl. Leonid Brezhnev remains in hiding. Both sides are now using rockets and stealth in the war, and the AK-47s see more use in the war. Zhukov attempts to get help from Iran in the south but fails.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The vassalage of South Kurdistan begins. The first gauss cannon prototype is finished, a small weapon to be used in naval ships. A fifth, sixth and seventh carrier are made and the creation of a small nuclear program in Athens, While this, the army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts of vassalizing South Kurdistan.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Saudi Secret Dip: Seeing as the Celtic Union is also trying to push its influence on Syria, we ask that Greece and her vassals join us, Oceania, and possibly more in an anti-Celtic expansion alliance. 
    • Greece Secret Dip: We all agree Greece shall help you on this.
  • Germany: The people of Germany are still celebrating their victory over the British and the liberation of their English brethren. Despite this, the High Command is worried about the performance of its military. The navy and amphibious assault went exactly as planned, but other factors were lacking. The air force did not perform as well against the RAF as predicted, and numerous Panzer VIs had mechanical trouble once on the ground. It is thought that only the advantages of stealth aircraft, surprise, and guided rockets and missiles are the things that let the Luftwaffe triumph and ensure victory for the Germans. As such, the issues with the armed forces are being addressed. The Panzer VI "Leopard" tanks are being inspected and given technical enhancements to improve their capability in the field. The Luftwaffe planes are also put under inspection to improve their capability and dogfighting ability. Rurhstahl missiles are made to replace any used by the Luftwaffe in the invasion. Production of war vehicles and weapons continues to replace any lost by Axis forces in the invasion of Britain. Von Braun moves to Kamerun to work on the German Rocket Project there, and he continues to work on the designs of the A7 and A8 rockets. A small carrier group along with more troops is sent to German Papua, to counter potential revenge attacks against the colony there. Investment in the colonies continues, and most people in the colonies now speak German as well as have some degree of education. The White population of the colonies still stays relatively low. The German government begins to create decolonization plans to ensure that the colonies remain stable and peaceful once the Germans leave, as the deadline is now only seven years away. Germany also supports Portugal in the struggles in Angola and its other colonies, insisting that the deadline that was agreed upon be respected. Germany also begins to supply the Royalists in Iran. The popularity of the Nazi party reaches an all-time high due to the success of the party in combating Germany's enemies. Following the proposition of other European leaders on a transcontinental pipeline, Albert Speer begins to consider the plan that would ship oil from Norway all the way down to Italy and Greece. The pipeline begins construction in Germany, and Germany continues its work in thermonuclear fusion and nuclear missiles.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich England: The occupation of England by the Axis forces continues. Medical treatment is offered to any who were hurt in the invasion, and special care is given to those who were hurt in atomic detonations. German Wehrmacht troops divide the country into seven military sectors in order to better maintain order in the area. Counterinsurgency operations begin in order to flush out any English rebels, and nightime raids are extremely effective because of the infrared scopes of the STG44. Young-bodied Englishmen are sent on intellectual tours of Germany and Europe, where they are taught useful skills that will help them get ahead in life and to better communicate with the occupation when they return home. This is actually done to reduce the number of English resisting occupation. In terms of government, the royal family is re-instated in a reduced role, and none of them are harmed. Oswald Mosely is put in charge as Prime Minister. Slowly but surely manufacturing businesses and factories spring up again to bring life to the English economy. An English military begins training to help the Germans in the occupation. An English Navy is also started up again, but is as of now only a few destroyers and lesser ships like minelayers. An English Air Force is held off for now, but is planned. Supplies are imported to England to help it rebuild from Germany by helicopter. Resistance groups grow in northern England. The Sword of Saint George (SSG) is a monarchist rebel group, while the English Republican Army (ERA) is a Republican-Communist rebel group. Both groups are in the north near York and have created some havoc for English and German troops.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich Niederlande: Dutch troops continue to assist in the occupation of England, but the majority of them return home along with the fleet. Production of war materials continues to replace anything that was lost in the invasion. Investment in the Guiana colony continues, but a growing number of politicians suggest that the Netherlands begins to withdraw from that area of the world to focus more on events closer to home. German becomes a major language taught in schools, as is English. Border patrols with Belgium increase should any potential conflict break out between the two countries. The government signs on to the English Youth Education Program.
  • Czechoslovakia: Military production of goods continues, and Czech troops return home. Some politicians begin suggesting to split the nation in two, and create two independent republics, but there are a lot of ideas going around at this time, including the idea of a monarchy. Despite this, none of these ideas gains significant traction as of now. Czechoslovakia signs on to the English Youth Education Program.
  • Yugoslavia: The government begins a buildup program to increase the power of the Yugoslavian navy. The armed forces return home after invading Britain. The government also begins to ensure an economic recovery program, to ensure that the economy is stable. The government also begins taking steps toward easing conflict between the different provinces and the king takes a tour of them all to support that endeavor.

1955.0

The US economy in a relative surprise gets a consideral economic uplift prempting a Recession that was forming. The formation and centralization of trade due to the Federation as well as the US detonation of an H-Bomb is declared to be the two prime reasons preventing consumer confidence from falling.

The Romanian government begins a successful purge of Communists from the country with wide support using the Soviet civil war as a prime example of why Communism won't work.

If this is not MP who wrote this it shall be struck down.

The larger more organized English resistance groups spread into the less defended Scotland and wreaked major havoc against the Celtic union. Reports of Scotsmen joining the rebels circulate.

Colombia utilizing the last of its previous British investment has built an extremely successful economy and offers to its neighbors the possibility of a Pan American Highway. The main portions of the idea are sent to the US and the Federation.

The Federation now formed has become one of the most interesting media stories of the decade with the potential of uniting a large majority of Latin America. 

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.


  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation announces in a large public conference that both Paraguay and Venezuela, have both agreed to join the Federation. Paraguay has managed to secure large amounts of States rights even managing to mirror their North American counterpart highly. Along with this the Chaco region being a highly central area to most nations has been labeled the site for the new capital of the Federation, Santa Salvación. This capital is constructed immediately with some basic buildings and governmental structures built up immediately. Along with this the Chaco region immediately sees a huge influx of people from all the states of the Federation with many people taking up residence in the resource exploitation and the building of infrastructure. Many of the construction workers with that being considered a respectable middle class job are promised housing in the new city. Some resource companies also help existing Paraguayan infrastructure (which was previously built up in the Chaco region) to be built up to expand the highways, railways and build a new metro system, and connect it all heavily to the rest of the Federation's states. A President is also elected as are the first Congress and House of Representatives, with judges being appointed as well. The President of the Federation is Andrés Almagro a staunch Federalist with his preferences lying heavily on the right. The Federalist party was faced off against the Neo Liberal party made up of the most powerful liberal parties in the country. The Federation military now continues its previous research projects using greater resources to heavily help advance the projects. The Federation decides that until the Guyanas are admitted as states that the highlands of Venezuela will be used for a pseudo-launch site until the Guyanas are secured. Just after this the first rocket is launched. It is considered a failure as it does not achieve orbit. However, the rocket program continues to gain more attention as a major breakthrough through warhead miniaturization in made. The Federation also begins development of a new type of Fighter jet intent on replacing its older jets. The Federation also tests another larger yield bomb in the South Atlantic. The country's population with the addition of Paraguay and Venezuela reaches nearly 108 million and growing still. The Federation begins expanding on current nuclear concept and the large understanding in order to tap into thermonuclear fusion. Significant understandings are made at a steady pace.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas show no major immigrant increase in Brazilians throughout the two areas but show some increases in Spanish Americans. The Guyanas also begin to to allow for some foreign investment reserving most of it for its South American neighbors.

The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica remains impartial to the creation of the Federation.
    • Saudi Secret Dip: We request that the Federation and her bloc join our anti-Celtic expansion alliance.
  • Celtic Union: We continue to buy up companies in Syria and begin buying up in Iran and Iraq. The military is expanded, and the Boru 5 battle tank is tested. An Oceanic sub is sighted on the coast, and captured. We discover that they and other subs were spying upon us, and demand an answer from Oceanic. Spies are deployed to secretly investigate the Oceanic. The IRA, which has refused to disband despite the death of England, begins a war against the ERA, and the resulting bloodshed causes the government to start hunting down both groups. The economy is expanded, and the military is expanded as well. We request that we are allowed to join the Axis Powers. Capitalism becomes the dominant ideology. The USSR civil war is shown as an example of the failures of Communism. Afghanistan companies are bought up by ours. All trade with Norway is stopped, and we ask for more trade with Saudi Arabia. The creation of a Federation of Americas is taken warily by the government. It is decided to open an embassy in the FA. modernization of Wales and Scotland continues. Plans are made to build helicopters. We ask the USA if we can buy some of their unwanted ships. We condemn Franco's attempts to annex Morocco.
    • Saudi Arabia accepts.
    • The Oceanic Intelligence agency denies these claims. Furthermore, we have not taken the imperialist government of England. We are freely elected and a republic. Australia (in OTL, and here) suffered at the hands of the former Empire. But note: we will defend our lands against aggression. Also note: We ARE NOT ENGLAND.
    • Pick one nation and stay with it, influencing seven nations when you're broke gets you nowhere when you can't provide ... Also, you would never find his subs. If you're not at war and are broke your web of search would be scattered and broken. 
    • Federation Dip: We deny the CU an embassy and officially arrest all high level diplomats that were sent to us. Along with this, the ship sent by the CU is seized and in a high profile was escorted back to the CU and destroyed in CU waters. We warn the CU that continued aggressive behaviour to any nations will result in the death of their ambassadors. Stay in your corner of the world, you backwater.
    • Swiss D: We are angered by the aggression shown by the Celtics, and withdraw diplomatic contact, and shutter the CU embassy in Bern until the nation withdraws from its imperialistic antics. We evacuate all embassy personnel. The Swiss government and people unanimously vote to decline the Celtic Union's request to join the ICNN due to their non-neutral actions. We do request that the Federation not execute the captured diplomats as they are on assignment for the government, not necessarily choosing to be there. We respectfully request that, if need be, they be repatriated to Switzerland.
    • Federation Dip: The world knows how South America deals with hostility ... Particularly Brazil and Argentina, the CU directly attempted to challenge us, we do not respect them in any way shape or form and the ambassadors will in fact be imprisoned or killed unless the CU's rhetoric changes significantly.
    • CU Dip: Now this is extreme. We attempt to make a peaceful approach to your nation, and this is how you respond? We are not imperialist. After all, you did the same thing. There is no "game" in Europe. We are only trying to establish democratic, capitalist nations in each of the nations we are influencing. Once they are made more capitalist, we will pull out. However, we propose a peaceful solution to the Celtic hostage crisis. We openly plead with the USA to support us against this aggression by the Federation. We plead with the UN also.
    • Federation Dip: The last time you approached me and the US it was with utter hostility and a superiority complex. As it stands, the CU will remain on its own islands and will refrain from further influence abroad. You must focus on your new fledgling nation first rather than challenge every major power available for territories that were previously claimed or areas the British once held. You are not Britain, hence you are not entitled to any of her former possessions.
    • Oceanic D: We ask the Federation to not execute but instead deport the diplomats to a neutral nation. Oceania will not give to Celtic Union. Back down out of Oceania and the Middle East and any attempts elsewhere or there will be war.
    • Federation Dip: We once again re-iterate that unless the CU pulls its influence from all areas outside its continent the diplomats will remain in the ederation. We also regret to inform your your top diplomat has elected to stay in the Federation opting to live in former British Guyana. The remainder will be released at a later date if the demands are followed through.
    • CU Dip: We have a proposal: Release the hostages and we will cease our expanding influence. In return, however, we request that you influence these nations so they become capitalist. We cease all influence in Asia after Oceanic made their request to release the hostages, as we agreed to if they supported us.
  • Switzerland: The army purchases another 70 Panzer 54 MBT's to replace the Panzer IV tanks. The Panzer IVs tanks are sent to the militia units, and the Panzer III tanks are offered for sale. We continue to improve infrastructure, and look warily at the Celtic Union's expansion and threats. We begin to design a new assault rifle for the armed forces called the SIG SG 510 assault rifle. The army looks to buy 130,000 of them and convert 10,000 Karbiner Model 1940 rifles into sniper rifles. We buy another 500,000 SIG P210 handguns.
  • Saudi Arabia: Despite getting them to back down in Palestine, Saudi Arabia asks again, in secret, for the US and the Federation to join us, Greece, and Oceania in an anti-Celtic expansion alliance.  The militaries of Palestine, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and North Yemen are improved, as are the infrastructures of Palestine, Kuwait and North Yemen. We begin to influence Iraq and influence of Oman continues.
    • ​Oceanic Secret D: Oceania agrees with Arabia and will join in curtailing any unwanted foreign influences, particularly from Europe.
    • American D: We will join.
  • Spain: We condemn the Celtic Union's expansionism, stating that only bad things for the fledgling nation can come of expansionism. The government devotes many of the new factories to producing new, modern weapons. Production begins on a medium tank that is planned to "dominate the battlefield". The A95-Toro, an all-around tank with a high top speed and a new 95 mm gun. We ask for other nations to invest in Spanish industry. Factories throughout Morocco spring up, and Catholic converison continues. We ask to make Switzerland a protectorate of ours, as they are fearing invasion by other nations. The Spanish infantry is given ULMG-1's.
    • CU Dip: We ask to help Switzerland as well, and request that we deploy troops to aid Switzerland in case of invasion.
    • Swiss D: We turn down both requests, citing our neutrality.
    • Swiss D: We propose to the Spanish, as we are both neutral countries, to form an organization called the International Community for Neutral Nations. It will be similar to the UN for neutral countries, and possibly other associations.
      • Spanish Diplomacy: We decline, as that is against neutrality.
    • CU Dip: We request that we can join, as we are not technically Axis yet.
  • Norway: We continue to pump out more oil from the Norwegian Sea. Our oil is the largest export of our country going to different countries around the world. We sell each barrel of oil for 15 dollars. More and more modernization is going on in our country.
    • Greenland: We set up port cities to export all of the fish we catch. Our scientists start to make prototype missiles in our secret bases.

Dude, start doing stuff, please. You're just not doing anything. Spartian300 (talk) 14:53, January 7, 2014 (UTC)

Oceanic Commonwealth: The Commonwealth celebrates its first year as officially independent and a unified nation, with its own flag, completely independent from the British design, to a unique coat of arms. Oceania wants to distance itself more and more from the old GB. The Oceanic Navy is bolstered by the purchase of some 50 ships from the Federation. With three capital ships and four new battleships under construction, the navy is starting to look healthy, more than enough to defend her far flung reaches. The Capital ship OMS Mclain is christened in Canberra and joins its two sisters, recently renamed from their former British names, the OMS Intrepid and OMS Federation. The military begins expanding the army and the aging air force. President Melborn pushes for better industry and opens up non-essential (i.e, non-military) industries to foreign investment. The Volcoff Group is formed, a large collection of jewelry makers and distributers. The precious minerals mined by the Group is shipped either as premium Australian jewelry or as raw materials. The General Assembly passes legislation that promotes having two or three children by providing government subsidies to keep the population booming. Oceania and the Federation discuss desert reclamation in effort to keep the nation booming. Spying on the Celtic Union continues in secret. All sub groups are present and accounted for and are asked to patrol closer to international waters so as to avoid any incident. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. In the Islands, the Oceanic Navy detaches a fleet of three frigates, one battleship, one capital ship - the Mclain - and six destroyers, to defend the Solomons against any foreign aggression. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The army invests in an unknown organization in the government. President Melborn issues the Melborn Doctrine, which states that "Oceania and her lands are sovereign and recognized nations, therefore we absolve to fight any aggression as it comes to our seas. Oceania is ours and We the People want no European influences in Asia.  Oceania is looking to purchase large groups of jet fighters to bolster the small, aging Oceanic Federal Air force.

    • Swiss D: We offer to sell your Air Force 120 EFW N20 Air Superiority jets, 60 FFA P-20 Ground Attack jets, 24 Pilatus P-2 Introductory Trainers, 24 EFW N20 Lead-In jet trainer, 12 Pulatus P-2 ground attack planes, and 36 EFW N-20R reconnaissance jet aircraft.
    • Oceanic D: we accept. We offer to open formal diplomatic relations with an embassy in Bern. The Swissnare offered an embassy in Sydney. Oceania is also interested in this neutral nations pact and would like more information.
    • Swiss Dip: We are happy to exchange embassies with another neutral power. This neutral nations pact will act similar to the United Nations, but with only neutral nations that have not caused political turmoil intentionally for the past years (dealing with external aggression, even if it leads to war is not intentional, just as long as diplomatic channels were attempted). This coalition will work together to provide aid to third world nations, refugees, POW's, and disaster victims by providing materials, funding, and personnel to the scene. We will also form a committee similar to the UN Security Council, except all nations have a vote to deploy troops to monitor a DMZ, administer a ceasefire, or other issues we may deal with.
    • ​CU Dip: ​  As an attempt at peace, we request that Oceanic helps support us in the Celtic hostage crisis by asking the Federation government to release the hostages. In return, we promise to cease our actions in Asia.
    • Oceanic D: We have asked them not to execute the diplomats, the rest is up to you to the Swiss, we are indeed interested but we are curious as to whether or not such an international body can be truelly neutral.
    • Norwegian D: We ask for an alliance.
    • Oceanic D: We accept the Norwegian offer.
  • The USSR continues to engage in war with itself. Brezhnev is located in Chernobyl, although Zhukov and his forces are not able to extract him due to the mass number of Berians forces surrounding the city. Beria also fails to kill him. The Berians are falling back as many of his political supporters are defecting to Zhukov, who seems to be winning, but Zhukov does not trust any of them and has them jailed in the Urals. Shit continues to go down.
  • The United States continues to improve or maintain its economy, while the nuclear arsenal is expanded. The United States moves its expansion of its military from asset wise to technological superiority, thus all American soldiers, ships, tanks, planes, submarines, etc., begin the process of receiving technological upgrades. The space program continues, while the United States plans for a satellite launch by 1957 or 1958. Research into all fields continue. Social improvement continues, infrastructure expanded, entire South desegregated. Meanwhile, the United States supports a Trans-American Highway. The same thing as the United States continues in Mexico and Cambodia, minus the expansion of nuclear arsenal and space program. 
  • Canada: With the US rising Canada the Canadian economy sees it as a smart move to begin to start trading and build closer relations with the USA. Continued drilling and mining advances in the North, while the issue and protecting national forest becomes and issue, the Canadian Goernment begins putting aside specific land for development and other land as reserves and parks. With the basic fall of the Commonwealth and the strong distance and resentment toward the English, Canada begins seeking full independence and leave the influence of Britain.
  • Germany: The people of Germany are still celebrating their victory over the British and the liberation of their English brethren. Despite this, the High Command is worried about the performance of its military. The navy and amphibious assault went exactly as planned, but other factors were lacking. The air force did not perform as well against the RAF as predicted, and numerous Panzer VIs had mechanical trouble once on the ground. It is thought that only the advantages of stealth aircraft, surprise, and guided rockets and missiles are the things that let the Luftwaffe triumph and ensure victory for the Germans. As such, the issues with the armed forces are being addressed. The Panzer VI "Leopard" tanks are being inspected and given technical enhancements to improve their capability in the field. The Luftwaffe planes are also put under inspection to improve their capability and dogfighting ability. Rurhstahl missiles are made to replace any used by the Luftwaffe in the invasion. Production of war vehicles and weapons continues to replace any lost by Axis forces in the invasion of Britain. Von Braun moves to Kamerun to work on the German Rocket Project there, and he continues to work on the designs of the A7 and A8 rockets. A small carrier group along with more troops is sent to German Papua, to counter potential revenge attacks against the colony there. Investment in the colonies continues, and most people in the colonies now speak German as well as have some degree of education. The White population of the colonies still stays relatively low. The German government begins to create decolonization plans to ensure that the colonies remain stable and peaceful once the Germans leave, as the deadline is now only seven years away. Germany also supports Portugal in the struggles in Angola and its other colonies, insisting that the deadline that was agreed upon be respected. Germany also begins to supply the Royalists in Iran. The popularity of the Nazi party reaches an all-time high due to the success of the party in combating Germany's enemies. Following the proposition of other European leaders on a transcontinental pipeline, Albert Speer begins to consider the plan that would ship oil from Norway all the way down to Italy and Greece. The pipeline begins construction in Germany, and Germany continues its work in thermonuclear fusion and nuclear missiles.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich England: The occupation of England by the Axis forces continues. Medical treatment is offered to any who were hurt in the invasion, and special care is given to those who were hurt in atomic detonations. German Wehrmacht troops divide the country into seven military sectors in order to better maintain order in the area. Counterinsurgency operations begin in order to flush out any English rebels, and nightime raids are extremely effective because of the infrared scopes of the STG44. Young-bodied Englishmen are sent on intellectual tours of Germany and Europe, where they are taught useful skills that will help them get ahead in life and to better communicate with the occupation when they return home. This is actually done to reduce the number of English resisting occupation. In terms of government, the royal family is re-instated in a reduced role, and none of them are harmed. Oswald Mosely is put in charge as Prime Minister. Slowly but surely manufactoring businesses and factories spring up again to bring life to the English economy. An English military begins training to help the Germans in the occupation. An English Navy is also started up again, but is as of now only a few destroyers and lesser ships like minelayers. An English Air Force is held off for now, but is planned. Supplies are imported to England to help it rebuild from Germany by helicopter. Resistance groups grow in northern England. The Sword of Saint George (SSG) is a monarchist rebel group, while the English Republican Army (ERA) is a Republican-Communist rebel group. Both groups are in the north near York and have created some havoc for English and German troops.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich Niederlande: Dutch troops continue to assist in the occupation of England, but the majority of them return home along with the fleet. Production of war materials continues to replace anything that was lost in the invasion. Investment in the Guiana colony continues, but a growing number of politicians suggest that the Netherlands begins to withdraw from that area of the world to focus more on events closer to home. German becomes a major language taught in schools, as is English. Border patrols with Belgium increase should any potential conflict break out between the two countries. The government signs on to the English Youth Education Program. Negotiations begin with the Federation regarding the future of Dutch Guiana.
  • Czechoslovakia: Military production of goods continues, and Czech troops return home. Some politicians begin suggesting to split the nation in two, and create two independent republics, but there are a lot of ideas going around at this time, including the idea of a monarchy. Despite this, none of these ideas gains significant traction as of now. Czechoslovakia signs on to the English Youth Education Program.
  • Yugoslavia: The government begins a buildup program to increase the power of the Yugoslavian navy. The armed forces return home after invading Britain. The government also begins to ensure an economic recovery program, to ensure that the economy is stable. The government also begins taking steps toward easing conflict between the different provinces and the king takes a tour of them all to support that endeavor.

1955.5

USSR shit continues to happen with the civil war.

The population of the US officially reaches 157 million (no Baby Boomers like OTL). Wall Street economists release statistics placing the American countries with the most potential for growth with the US and Federation leading.

Saudi influence over the Middle East continues to grow exponentially with the major oil deal with the Federation allowing for a controlled and well priced market to flourish. Both countries show significant growth in their oil industries.

The Mainline Indian Civil war is declared over with the RSS taking victory.

I declared an end to it over three to four years ago. LOL. :P 1 Imp (Say Hi?!) 10:10, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

The Commonwealth of Oceania is seen to be well established and any nations planning to take it over their overseas provinces delay most of their plans for the foreseeable future.

I see the other mods looking at my nation. Well, you are correct, this has put a spanner in my plans. :P ~Imp

  • ​Celtic Union: Celtic intelligence agents plan a bold rescue attempt for the hostages under Federation custody. Infiltrating the prison where they are held, the agents disguise the hostages as Muslim by supplying them with the necessary clothing. They are then secretly taken to the nearest airport, and flown to the USA. The plan is approved by the government, but it must wait until the right time. We slowly begin pulling out of Egypt, but will not pull out completely until the hostages are released and returned to the Celtic Union. Rebuilding begins over the country, and the economy is expanded along with the military. Celtic Airways is founded, and becomes the dominant airline company in the CU. The Boru 5 battle tank is improved. The first Celtic prototype helicopter is tested. Infrastructure is improved throughout the country. Educational reforms are put in place. Scotland is improved so as to gain support. Modernization continues. 
  • Saudi Arabia: The king is given the early draft for a war plan with the Celtic Union by one of his advisors. The plan has three major flaws: Saudi Arabia does not have the numbers or the navy for an invasion of the British Isles. More importantly, Germany still occupies England, and war would with them would likely strain relations with the Federation and would also most likely result in a Saudi defeat. As such, the plan is kept in secret. Our navy is expanded using the former British naval designs. We look to open diplomatic relations with Spain, offering to invest in Spanish-based companies in exchange for the designs for the ULMG. Industry improves in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, North Yemen, and Palestine. Influence of Oman and Iraq continue. The military of all nations in our sphere of influence is expanded. Saudi Arabia creates the Arabian Shield Force. The ASF is a merged military of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Palestine, and North Yemen. All nations are still sovereign states and the alliance merges only our armed forces. The idea was partially inspired by the creation of the Federation. However, it also intended to protect Saudi Arabia's sphere of influence in case another nation tries to hamper it.
    • Spanish Diplomacy: We accept.
  • Switzerland: The army officially commissions 130,000 SIG SG 520 battle rifles and 10,000 Karbiner Model 1940's are converted to sniper rifles with optics and suppressors. The barrel is lengthened to 30 inches and we make them only semiautomatic. The army buys 150 Ordinance QF 25 pounders and 150 BL 5.5-inch medium guns from an unknown source. The air facilities ship all the aircraft to the Commonwealth of Oceania. We begin on our section of the pipeline, starting in northern Switzerland and working South. We continue to attract tourism and we improve our banking system up to par with Uruguay's. Many of our investors are from Europe, Oceania and Asia.
  • Norway: We are now allies with the Oceanic Commonwealth. Haakon Christian Federik and his wife are assassinated just outside of their house while getting out of their car by a person in a broken hockey mask. Haakon Christian Federik's brother is the new leader of Norway until Oscar turns 16 and is able to become the new ruler. Oscar is 10.5 years of age. This shocks the nation, and the public thinks that it was done by the brother who is a Communist politician. The king did not have a political party of choice and some people thought he was independent.
    • Greenland: We are modernizing the territory of Greenland to be like Norway. The military sets up more secret bases on the island. 
    • CU Dip: We offer our sorrow at the death of Haakon Federik. We hope that his son will become a great leader one day. The Celtic Intelingence Agency shall begin to investigate the murder. 
    • Norwegian D: We thank you for your sorrow. Thanks for the secret.
    • CU Dip: Our agents have turned up little so far, but they have pin-pointed the weapon as being former military. The broken hockey mask is taken as a sign of insanity, which raises a question: how did a mad man get a decomissioned military weapon? 
    • Norwegian D: CU, it was the king's twin brother. He is a military general. He was mad that their father chose his brother over him to be king when he died. He has been planning to kill him for many years.
    • CU Dip: We call for his arrest. (we should name these people).
    • Norwegian D: His name is Alexander.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • Scandinavia: Our troops continue to jointly occupy the UK with the Axis powers. Troops continue fighting the bad guys in York. Steel and military production continue. Pan-Scandinavianism and Anti-Communism grow.
  • No oct. no, no, no, no ...
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: The military begins expanding the army and the aging air force. President Melborn pushes for better industry and opens up non-essential (i.e., non-military) industries to foreign investment. The Volcoff Group is formed, a large collection of jewelry makers and distributers. The precious minerals mined by the Group is shipped either as premium Australian jewelry or as raw materials. The General Assembly passes legislation that promotes having two or three children by providing government subsidies to keep the population booming. Oceania and the Federation discuss desert reclamation in effort to keep the nation booming. Spying on the Celtic Union continues in secret. All sub groups are present and accounted for and are asked to patrol closer to international waters so as to avoid any incident. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. In the Islands, the Oceanic Navy detaches a fleet of three frigates, one battleship, one capital ship - the Mclain - and six destroyers, to defend the Solomons against any foreign aggression. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The Oceanic Space Adminstration is formed. Rocket research is increased by the Oceania AeroCorp, a large private industry that is providing capital and research for the government. Oceania opens embassies for the Federation, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and Japan. The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue. The Commonwealth of Oceania appeals to the UN for it to take the former UK's seat in the UN citing it is the most stable and largest of the UK successor states, and has proved that it can contribute to the world. The air force expands massively due to the purchases from the Swiss. The Oceanic Commonwealth becomes a founding member of the United Neutral Alliance along with Switzerland. Saudi Arabia is invited to join. Oceania AeroCorp works with Switzerland to design a new line of helicopters. With the Navy almost to size, spending is decreased to allow for more money to be injected into the Space Programme. A large stipend is sent to Oceania AeroCorp to aid in rocket research, which is coming along rather well. Oceania begins to exert influence on the Philippine Islands.
    • CU Dip: SECRET: We request small pieces of uranium in exchange for a small number of excessive ships we have.
    • Saudi Dip: Saudi Arabia will consider joining, For now, we have no answer.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation officially releases multiple CU diplomats but allows those who don't wish to go to move into the Capital. By this point some sensitive government buildings have been completed as well as some housing and the continued expansion continues at a moderate pace. The Federation military also continues to research and now develop aircraft bringing the EA-3 Tiger (ground attack aircraft) and the EF-4 Liberty Fighter aircraft. The military also officially unveils the SSM-1 Matador cruise missile. It is tested publicly to show off to the populace and they are used on mock targets outside of Rio de Janeiro. The tests are a success and a talk of the Federation media for quite a long time. The Federation also finishes developing its new cruisers and destroyers with both able to fire ground-to-air missiles as well as the new Cruise missiles. The Federation also begins a major program to help expand further economic growth and push the economy to new heights. The building of new metros and highways and railways are continued with the highways being linked up with all the country's highways. The country also repairs the Falklands Islands as a major naval base as well as the South Georgia, and South Sandwich Islands. Ascencion Island is turned into a joint air force/naval base. The Federation finished normal development of a new cargo transport aircraft, as well as a new long range bomber. The country's research military division also continues new developments of its heavy and medium tanks coming out with two workable designs the heavy tank design. However, it exceeds expectations and it is attacked with everything from air dropped ordinance to mines and performs extremely well. The prototypes of this vehicle are produced in a quantity of 50, Its 105 mm cannon and newer munitions are solidly able to penetrate large amonts of armor that would be present on newer tanks. This new tank is called the EH-40 Accension tank and it scheduled to become the new workhorse vehicle of the Federation. Some APC's and IFV's are developed as well and are looked at for a faster and speedier armed forces. However, the rocket program continues to gain more attention as a major breakthrough through warhead miniaturization in made. The Federation begins construction of a space facility in former French Guyana and transfers much of the equipment to the site. The Federation does, however, launch one last rocket from the Venezuela site and it achieves orbit shortly before coming down near Oceania. The Federation also finishes designs for a workable attack helicopter as well as two new cargo and transport helicopters. Private individuals begins prospecting for minerals throughout the country, the State of Piauí, Brazil already decently exploited is rumoured to have great potential. Many other states are considered as well with Paraguay and Argentina being combed thoroughly to give definite data on the reserves of the Federation. The Federation does make decent finds in Eastern Paraguay.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas show no major immigrant increase in Brazilians throughout the two areas but show some increases in Spanish Americans. The Guyanas also begin to to allow for some foreign investment reserving most of it for its South American neighbors. The major gold and aluminum industries, however, remain majority nationalized as they allow for the economic growth of both. Sugar and other cash crops also serve to boost the economy to a decent degree as well. The Guyanas regardless of their separation are able to grow closer as the Brazilian government and their friendliness in allowing the areas to deal with the Brazilian economic bloc has left a lasting good impression upon the people. The Guyanan peoples once again hope for the acquisition of Suriname but due to their lesser stature and the SADC's various other commitments the confederal council does not think the acquisition of Suriname is likely. The Guyanan Confed is able to convince its populace that becoming an eventual Federation member is ideal as long as Suriname is acquired. The Confederation officially asks for Suriname from Germany as well as their Antilles possessions to be ceded to the appropriate authorities. Germany will be allowed to retain their base and costs of re-organization will be covered. We give the Federation plans to construct a full scale space facility in Guyana.
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to do the trick as the money is used in the right ways. This has allowed the economy to come back in a small way. The government prepares to have elections in 1953 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially join Brazil's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 8.7 million</span>. Peru while reluctantly apart of Brazil bloc undergoes elections in which pro-Brazil politicians remain in power. Peru manages to prevent the Federation group from gaining any major power in the country. However, regardless, a small Federation group is becoming extremely influential with the countries lower denizens. 
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The new country cautiously attempts forming the confederal government attempting to keep the new fragile nation alive. The Antilles Confederation supports the creation of the Federation. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica remains impartial to the creation of the Federation.
      • CU Dip: We pull out of Egypt completely, and invite the other diplomats back to the Celtic Union. We declare that our expansionism is over.  
      • Dutch Diplomacy: We are beginning to withdraw from that area, and we are in the process of creating a stable government to give you.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The vassalage of South Kurdistan begins. The first gauss cannon prototype is finished, a small weapon to be used in naval ships. A fifth, sixth and seventh carrier are made and the creation of a small nuclear program in Athens, While this, the army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
  • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts of vassalizing South Kurdistan.
  • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Saudi Dip: We ask for a non-aggression pact with Greece. SECRET: We propose to Greece an offer: We will back Greece in an invasion of Syria, giving them large amounts of military aid and in return, the bottom third of the nation will be annexed by Palestine, while the rest will be created as a Greek puppet state.  
  • Scandinavia: A resolution is put forward for the members of the Axis pact to expel the Federation from the organization due to internationial crimes commited against one of our main allies - the CU. Vote is on the bottom of this post. Military and steel production continue. Population grows, with parents being encouraged to have a minimum of five kids. Modernization continues. Hostility with the USSR grows. The joint king thing seems to work out well with the three kingdoms of Iceland, Denmark and Sweden. Occupation of England continues. A mandatory youth organization is formed.
  • We said no, oct. You're not Scandinavia ... Denmark and Sweden are both under German control and Norway is indie ... stop it - Feud
  • Canada: With full independence from Canada we begin forming good relations with nations of the Western Hemisphere, and begin building a sizeable army to defend Canada and to make good on alliances.
  • France: President Vincent Auriol unveils a new plan of reforms to the French public. Starting immediately the French military shall go under a complete reconstruction, with the gradual decommissioning of nearly all current vessels and aircraft, to be replaced with their modern equivalents from foreign suppliers. The borders with Germany, Spain and the northern coastline of the Channel, are greatly re-inforced, with defensive structures, as well as some offensive emplacements, being constructed. A message is sent to the United States, stating that we wish to purchase two Forrestal-class aircraft carriers, 16 Forrest Sherman-class destroyers, and eight Providence-class cruisers. In return, we offer a sum of $80 million to be paid back over the course of the next twenty years. We would like to remind the US, that such a large order will create a large number of shipbuilding jobs, and will improve the American economy. We would expect shipment of these new craft to be done within three years. A message is also sent to Switzerland, enquiring about the interceptor and ground attack jets they can offer, that can be launched from carrier. We also express an interest in heavy armour tanks. We shall offer prices depending upon what offers are returned to us. President Auriol states in a secret cabinet meeting that the key focus of the French military shall now be lethality, rather than numbers. As a result he pushes a recruitment drive for the elite fighting force, the French Foreign Legion, with the goal of gaining 10,000 members within the next two years. The strict membership criteria, however, shall not be recanted on. The regular army shall also be increased, to 200,000, but with only slightly less membership criteria than the French foreign Legion, to make it deadly fighting force. This shall also take place over the next two years. The French economy as a result of this, sees some promising growth, which is then accelerated when President Auriol announces economic reforms, focusing on the lessening of corporate tax, with the goal of attracting foreign business to the state. The 'Free European Movement' begins in Paris, based around the ideal of an end to tyranny, and a union being formed from the free people's of Europe. France begins to bring Belgium into its own sphere of influence, offering military protection and aid from an ever threatening Reich.
    • Federation Secret Dip: Seeing a business opportunity the Federation is willing to work on tank designs with the French seeing as we have not come into conflict in years. Our EH-40 is a promising design and we are wondering if the French have any considerations for the design. We are also willing to sell carrier-capable aircraft.
    • French Secret Dip: We accept the offer of joint work on the EH-40. We suggest a focus on heavy armour, faster turret rotation, and sturdier tracks. We express an interest in carrier capable aircraft, and enquire what make is being offered?
    • Federation Secret Dip: They are a carrier-capable ground attack aircraft, and an air superiority fighter - also carrier based. Both can also be used outside of carriers. Prototypes of the EH-40 are sent to both the Americans and the French for design considerations.
    • French Secret Dip: We will accept these aircraft then, and thank our South American brothers. We begin to alter the prototype for a focus on armour, and turret rotation.
    • United States Secret Dip: We will agree to the deal, and the designs are sent to France. United States also proposes a three-way project between France, the Federation and the US.
    • French Secret Dip: We thank the US, and begin work immediately on the designs provided. We express an extreme interest in this secret project.
    • Federation Secret Dip: What kind of project?
    • American Secret Dip: Whatever project you two want, just trying to maintain friendly relations.
    • Federation Secret Dip: Well, I'm assuming you wouldn't be against trilateral nuclear research, equipment development and the use of the Americans superior ability to produce aircraft. While the Federation has a decent aerial industry, we would like to provide our designs and the like for superior American aviation tech and in exchange, the Federation armored vehicle industry is open to the US for suggestions, design considerations, and the like. (France may offer its own suggestions now as well).
    • French Secret Dip: We concur with the Federation on nuclear research. We would also greatly appreciate it if we could secretly purchase a single H-bomb for national defence. We offer $20 million in return. We also express an interest in missile technology. All others points listed by the Federation are concurred as well.
    • Swiss Dip: We ship the French 45 Panzer 54 tanks, 50 Panzer II's tanks, 50 Panzer I's tanks, 130,000 Karbiner Model 1940 assault rifles, and 60 Saurer M6 trucks to begin rebuilding the shattered French Armed Forces.

1956.0

The new course of the French nation begins to alter some opinions of some areas considered overseas provinces of the French nations. Some Algerians believe they can gain a better position in the world by remaining with France while others begin to believe independence is key. Some of the highest members of the Algerian Muslims ask France for equal representation under French law.

Yes! 

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues major construction on the capital of Santa Salvación with middle income and luxury housing both being built. The city is developed in a modernist sense but also due to some concerns the city planners decide against building the city in superblocks and go for smaller blocks. By this point many of the city's major and most minor governmental structures have been completed and the Federation government has successfully moved to the new city. With about 60,000 full time inhabitants the city continues to grow with it being planned to house just under one million people. The city planners also getting more funding than previously, though, are able to include large public areas such as parks and monuments taking cues from the United States capital. The city continues its exponential growth with the inhabitants of the city predicted to be nearly 200,000 by the end of the year with enough housing and developing jobs and resource jobs to house these people. The Federation also manages to pull demographics from nearly all corners of the country with a certain mixing occuring in the new city and its developing satellite towns. A large deposit of titanium is discovered in the Paraguayan state of Alto Parana and the resource companies begin looking to invest in exploitation but run into issues from local state government. However in Brazil, in the state of Piauí, the decent sized titanium and vanadium deposits are more readily exploited due to Brazil's previous pro-exploit procedures. This development into a major industry is suspected to take at least a year before meaniningful material comes out of the site. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers -  next to Saudi Arabia - and begins to competitively push oil prices and uses much of the oil money to work on light infrastructure and begins the build up of a national surplus. The Federation also receives the improved designs of the EE-40 heavy tank from France and taking these designs the Brazilians begin to manufacture prototypes for the army and the marines to test. The Federation military passes on orders for new APC's IFV's and other logistical and combat vehicles. The new cargo transport aircraft is also produced for mass purposes. The Federation airline industry takes off with some of the first major international flights on major carriers being offered to the United States - among other areas. The Federation also continues its space program now using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers. The population of the Federation reaches 114.4 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet. The Lusophone population growth lags behind the Hispanic population growth but still outnumbers them heavily. The Federation fields nearly 20 more attack subs and in secret has three of them retrofitted for special forces uses. The Federation establishes a decent amount of influence in both Cuba and Bolivia - enough so that the Bolivian president has been rated pro-federation. The Cuban influence, however, is relying heavily on the eventual election of Fidel Castro to the presidency. The Federation special forces now reorganized into the Espadas (navy/marines) Ghosts (army) and the Red Berets (air force). In secret, the three retrofitted subs are able to make their move toward the Celtic Union with the intent of seizing control of their government officials. The operation is scheduled to begin in six months time and the subs remain just outside of the CU's territorial waters waiting for the order. The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas show no major immigrant increase in Federation citizens throughout the two areas but show some increases in Spanish Americans. The Guyanas also begin to to allow for some foreign investment reserving most of it for its South American neighbors. The major gold and aluminum industries, however, remain majority nationalized as they allow for the economic growth of both. Sugar and other cash crops also serve to boost the economy to a decent degree as well. The Guyanas regardless of their separation are able to grow closer as the Brazilian government and their friendliness in allowing the areas to deal with the Brazilian economic bloc has left a lasting good impression upon the people. The Guyanan peoples once again hope for the acquisition of Suriname but due to their lesser stature and the SADC's various other commitments the confederal council does not think the acquisition of Suriname is likely. The Guyanan Confed is able to convince its populace that becoming an eventual Federation member is ideal as long as Suriname is acquired. The Confederation begins contact with Suriname working to integrate it into the Confederation soon.
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to do the trick as the money is used in the right ways. This has allowed the economy to come back in a small way. The government prepares to have elections in 1953 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially join Brazil's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 9.1 million. Peru begins to grow accustomed to its growing economic position and pursues better economic ties with the Federation.
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation supports the creation of the Federation. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antille begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following Most of South America's agricultural reorganization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter island air travel.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica remains impartial to the creation of the Federation.
  • Norway: With the loss of our king and his wife a special ceremony has taken place in the capital city. We found out who killed the king and his wife. It was the king's twin brother Alex. Since he is our temp leader until Oscar turns 16, he can't be put in prison. 
    • Greenland: The military continues to work on prototype missiles. We are still exporting oil to the world.
  • Celtic Union: Outraged by Alexander Anderson's actions, we declare war upon Norway, and use our ships to bomb Oslo and all their naval bases. We call upon Germany and India to aid us. We launch an invasion of Norway itself. Testing begins of our helicopters in the invasion. The invasion is at first a victory, but it is very costly, and a beachhead is secured. Plans are made to launch further attacks within the year. However, the Norwegians turn the tide, and we are forced back. The military and economy is expanded in response to the war. The Boru 5 MBT enters mass production. Oscar Anderson is kidnapped by the Celtic Intelligence, and taken to Dublin. Sean McFinn is appointed general of the army due to his success in the invasion. Trade is increased, and we hope to create uranium bombs soon. At home, Modernization continues of Wales and Scotland. The IRA and ERA continue their gang war. Government officials begin sending messages to other countries explaining that they are going to remove Alexander Anderson from power, and ensure that young Oscar is made king. Conscription begins across the country.
    • Swiss Dip: We condemn this war against Norway, and request that both sides back down. We understand why the Celts are angry that a murder was released, but, is war really the only answer? We also condemn Norway for freeing a proven murder just to keep political face. We offer to host talks to prevent a costly war, barely a decade after the Second World War, and invasion of Britain.
    • CU Dip: We agree, and call off the war. It is decided to resume trading with Norway, and to have Prince Oscar Anderson remain in the Celtic Union. After just a month, the Celtic-Norwegian War is declared over.
    • Algo please.
    • Working on it ... unless someone edits the talk page.
    • I have finished the algo. You lost pitifully.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth:The Volcoff Group continues to make record profits. Orion Industries is founded and immediately begins to buy up large amounts of rare earth minerals. Orion works on building better computers. In partnership with several Swiss companies, Orion hopes to miniaturize computing. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. In the Islands, the Oceanic Navy detaches a fleet of three frigates, one battleship, one capital ship - the Mclain - and six destroyers, to defend the Solomons against any foreign aggression. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The Oceanic Space Adminstration is formed. Rocket research is increased by the Oceania AeroCorp, a large private industry that is providing capital and research for the government. Oceania opens embassies for the Federation, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and Japan. The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue. The Commonwealth of Oceania appeals to the UN for it to take the former UK's seat in the UN citing it is the most stable and largest of the UK successor states, and has proved that it can contribute to the world. The air force expands massively due to the purchases from the Swiss. The United Neutral Alliance acknowledges Saudi's hesitancy and leaves a spot open should they decide to joinOceania AeroCorp works with Switzerland to design a new line of helicopters. With the navy almost up to size, spending is decreased to allow for more money to be injected into the space programme. A large stipend is sent to Oceania AeroCorp to aid in rocket research, which is coming along rather well. Oceania continues to exert influence on the Philippine Islands. Relations with the Federation continue to improve. President Melborn announces plans to attempt a space launch by late 1957. He also announces he will run for re-election in 1958. The General Assembly holds mid-term elections with the Federalist Party taking majority of the seats. The Commonwealth begins actions to bring democracy to other lands.
  • ​Angolan Nationalists: Following the counterinsurgency move by Portugal, we begin to ask for a ceasefire to recuperate our troops.
    • UNITA: We begin to ask implement a ceasefire to prevent further bloodshed, and marches in retreat to  the OTL Botswana region, and sets up camp. Jonas Savimbi and his comrades flee to South Afirca and reorganize a government-in-exile there until the decolonization  period begins.
    • MPLA: Also implements a ceasefire. We march northward in retreat to the Congo region (OTL Congo/Zaire), and sets up camp to regain strength and recuperate our troops in preparation for the much-awaited decolonization era.
    • FNLA: All  FNLA troops retreat to and regroup in Cabinda, and the government's machinery is starting to be crafted out. Sends a diplomatic party to Brazil and the Celtic Union, and asks permission to build and embassy on those countries to acquire foreign recognition.
    • That map is not valid. Portugal has initiated years worth of anti-insurgency campaigns, and has the support of many Axis nations. They would not have that little land.
    • Yo, MP, could you support 'em in the Celtic-Norwegian war? like we agreed?
    • Egypt: Begins to build up the military to invade Palestine and asks for a production license from Japan to produce Japanese weapons.
    • AvARw Angola 1956

      Situation in Angola as of 1956 prior to the ceasefire. MPLA-held areas are in red, those by UNITA in gold, FNLA in peach, and the Portuguese colonial government in light teal-green

    • Not posting as my country, but Palestine is not fully independent yet and is still under Saudi occupation. I just feel the need to let you know. ~Edge.
    • Angola is already a stable country, with many Communists but a democratic government.
    • Angola is not stable, it has a player and it's not full of Communists ... it's being influenced by former Brazil - now the Federation - as well as the USSR. It's half and half at least.
  • Switzerland: We continue work on our section of the pipeline. The government begins to construct radar, radio, and microwave trackers and communication equipment to aid the FA and Oceania in their space program. We begin to design a new motorized artillery piece called the MA-56. It will have a 175 mm cannon onboard, and two MG 51 machine guns for defense. The chassis will be based on the Panzer 54 tank. We begin to develop a helicopter tentatively named the SH Alps-01. It will be a rotorcraft for transportation. The Air Force buys 35 C-54 cargo planes to replace the aging DC-2 transport. Swiss civil industry begins to collaborate with the Oceanians on a computer.
  • Germany: The people of Germany are still celebrating their victory over the British and the liberation of their English brethren. Despite this, the High Command is worried about the performance of its military. The navy and amphibious assault went exactly as planned, but other factors were lacking. The air force did not perform as well against the RAF as predicted, and numerous Panzer VI's had mechanical trouble once on the ground. It is thought that only the advantages of stealth aircraft, surprise, and guided rockets and missiles are the things that let the Luftwaffe triumph and ensure victory for the Germans. As such, the issues with the armed forces are being addressed. The Panzer VI "Leopard" tanks are being inspected and given technical enhancements to improve their capability in the field. The Luftwaffe planes are also put under inspection to improve their capability and dogfighting ability. Rurhstahl missiles are made to replace any used by the Luftwaffe in the invasion. Production of war vehicles and weapons continues to replace any lost by Axis forces in the invasion of Britain. Von Braun moves to Kamerun to work on the German rocket project there, and he continues to work on the designs of the A7 and A8 rockets. A small carrier group along with more troops is sent to German Papua, to counter potential revenge attacks against the colony there. Investment in the colonies continues, and most people in the colonies now speak German as well as have some degree of education. The white population of the colonies still stays relatively low. The German government begins to create decolonization plans to ensure that the colonies remain stable and peaceful once the Germans leave, as the deadline is now only seven years away. Germany also supports Portugal in the struggles in Angola and its other colonies, insisting that the deadline that was agreed upon be respected. Germany also begins to supply the Royalists in Iran. The popularity of the Nazi party reaches an all-time high due to the success of the party in combating Germany's enemies. Following the proposition of other European leaders on a transcontinental pipeline, Albert Speer begins to consider the plan that would ship oil from Norway all the way down to Italy and Greece. The pipeline begins construction in Germany, and Germany continues its work in thermonuclear fusion and nuclear missiles. The first thermonuclear weapon is detonated in Namibia, keeping Germany up to date with the rest of the major powers. Germany demands that the Celtic Union stand down in its war with Norway, saying that this is a continental issue and the continent will deal with it.
    • CU Dip: We tell Germany that we must eliminate Communism from Norway, and we request that they aid us. MP, I THOUGHT WE AGREED TO INVADE NORWAY IF IT TURNED OUT THAT THE KING'S BROTHER DID IT!
    • Please refrain from OOC content included in diplomacy, also refrain from editing a mod's reversal of your algo on the talk page unless MP reverses it himself. You're claiming Germany and India were supposed to help you ... obviously not because India can't reach you right now. They are busy rebuilding things and Germany has declined to support you. Cut your immaturity and don't reverse mod decisions or I reserve the right to ban you for three days from the game. -Feud
    • Oceanic D: Oceania assures Germany that Oceania will not interfere in New Guinea. Oceania would also like to open formal diplomatic relations with Germany, in part as gesture of goodwill.
    • The People's Republic of Iran has already been formed.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich England: The occupation of England by the Axis forces continues. Medical treatment is offered to any who were hurt in the invasion, and special care is given to those who were hurt in atomic detonations. German Wehrmacht troops divide the country into seven military sectors in order to better maintain order in the area. Counterinsurgency operations begin in order to flush out any English rebels, and nightime raids are extremely effective because of the infrared scopes of the STG44. Young-bodied Englishmen are sent on intellectual tours of Germany and Europe, where they are taught useful skills that will help them get ahead in life and to better communicate with the occupation when they return home. This is actually done to reduce the number of English resisting occupation. In terms of government, the royal family is re-instated in a reduced role, and none of them are harmed. Oswald Mosely is put in charge as Prime Minister. Slowly but surely manufacturing businesses and factories spring up again to bring life to the English economy. An English military begins training to help the Germans in the occupation. An English navy is also started up again, but is as of now only a few destroyers and lesser ships like minelayers. An English air force is held off for now, but is planned. Supplies are imported to England to help it rebuild from Germany by helicopter. Resistance groups grow in northern England. The Sword of Saint George (SSG) is a monarchist rebel group, while the English Republican Army (ERA) is a Republican-Communist rebel group. Both groups are in the north near York and have created some havoc for English and German troops. German and English troops wage a successful campaign against a major ERA base near York, capturing or killing the majority of its command structure due to an informant's information. The EYEP begins to turn more and more English males into thinking that Germany might not be such a bad nation after all.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich Niederlande: Dutch troops continue to assist in the occupation of England, but the majority of them return home along with the fleet. Production of war materials continues to replace anything that was lost in the invasion. Investment in the Guiana colony continues, but a growing number of politicians suggest that the Netherlands begins to withdraw from that area of the world to focus more on events closer to home. German becomes a major language taught in schools, as is English. Border patrols with Belgium increase should any potential conflict break out between the two countries. The government signs on to the English Youth Education Program. Negotiations begin with the Federation regarding the future of Dutch Guiana. Dutch people as well as German military command begin to be brought home.
  • Czechoslovakia: Military production of goods continues, and Czech troops return home. Some politicians begin suggesting to split the nation in two, and create two independent republics, but there are a lot of ideas going around at this time, including the idea of a monarchy. Despite this, none of these ideas gains significant traction as of now. Czechoslovakia signs on to the English Youth Education Program.
  • Yugoslavia: The government begins a buildup program to increase the power of the Yugoslavian navy. The armed forces return home after invading Britain. The government also begins to ensure an economic recovery program, to ensure that the economy is stable. The government also begins taking steps toward easing conflict between the different provinces and the king takes a tour of them all to support that endeavor.
  • Saudi Arabia: The merged military is improved and expanded. The king reveals that the creation of the ASF merged military is phase one of a five phase plan. The second phase is the modernization of our Air-force and Navy. We decline Oceania's offer to join the Neutral Nations Alliance. We ask for a mutual defence pact with our trading partners: the US, Thailand, Oceania and the Federation. We hesitantly ask the Celtic Union to join as well. Influence on Oman and Iraq continue. We again ask Greece for a non-aggression pact, and present the plan for an invasion of Syria again, in secret. 30,000 soldiers are stationed in Palestine in preparation. We ask for Swiss aid in modernizing our air force and navy. We also begin to promote the creation of movies, books and plays that show Saudi Arabia in a positive light. We ask that these movies are released in foreign nations, specifically Oceania, the US, Mexico, the Federation, Japan and Thailand. We ask to open diplomatic channels with France. Troops are relocated around to protect the border of the ASF. (This post is probably a syntatic nightmare, I'm telling this to my roommate over the phone and she may not check spelling and grammar.)
    • Oceanic D: While Oceania is disappointed that Arabia has declined to join the Neutral Nations Alliance, Oceania does sign a defensive alliance pact with Saudi Arabia and gives permission for Saudi films to be played in Oceanic theatres. 
    • Swiss D: Switzerland, too, is disappointed that Arabia has declined to join the NNA. We do agree to help the Saudis build up an air force and offer patrol boats to begin to boost the navy. We request a detailed list of aircraft and patrol boat types and amounts. 
    • Saudi Arabia: would like to buy eight P-16s, eight EFW N-20s, ten Geneva II-class patrol boats. (I apologize if this is too much)
    • CU Dip: We agree to join the defence pact.
    • Swiss D: This request is not a very large order, and will be delivered in one month at the price of 50 million dollars.
    • Saudi Arabia accepts under the condition that the payment will be made over the next year and not all at once.
  • The United States continues to improve its economy and military, technologically speaking. Space program continues. Nuclear arsenal is expand, while one nuclear device is secretly shipped to France for their defense. Infrastructure, healthcare and education are improved. Supreme Court strikes down the statement and that desegregation is constitutional. The United States respectfully and politely states that it will not join the defense pact with Saudi Arabia, nothing personal. The United States Board of Media will allow Saudi Arabia to play their movies in American theaters. The United States also politely and respectfully tell the Commonwealth of Oceania that the Philippines is under the influence of Japan. On a lighter note, we announce America's support for Oceania's request to obtain Britain's seat. All research in all technological fields continue.
    • A question. no one is playing Japan. So according to my discussions with Feud. I should be able to influence the Philippines. I may be wrong, if so I will politely leave the islands alone. Oceania thanks you for your support.
    • Well, if Feud said that, then I don't have a problem. I just thought that Japan was still controlled by a player. - Enc
  • The Soviet civil war ends in late March after Zhukov orders the nuclear destruciton of Chernobyl, destroying the vast majority of Berian troops as well as Leonid Brezhnev. Beria commits suicide and the remainder of his troops begin to surrender everywhere, and Zhukov declares himself premier of the Soviet Union. He sends diplomats to reaffirm diplomatic relations with Germany and Brazil, as well as sending diplomats to the United States and Oceania. He also follows through with his word to minorities and seven new SSRs are created (the Karel SSR, the Dagestani SSR, the Rostov SSR, the Yakut SSR, the Altai SSR, the Tuva SSR, and the Buryat SSR) as well as creating autonomous zones in Greater Leningrad and Greater Moscow. He begins to implement new things that move the nation away from Stalinism and Leninism and closer toward proper socialism. The Supreme Soviet is also rearranged to accommodate the new SSRs and minorities, as well as representing minorities fairly. These are hailed by the common people. Zhukov also makes note to mention that he does not agree with Oceania on the permanent security council as Oceania has yet to make a grand show on the world stage. However, he is more focused on internal recovery, especially rebuilding the population.
    • Saudi Arabia wishes to open diplomatic relations with the USSR.
  • Scandinavia: A resolution is put forward for the members of the Axis pact to expel the Federation from the organization due to internationial crimes commited against one of our main allies - the CU. Vote is on the bottom of this post. Military and steel production continue. Population grows, with parents being encouraged to have a minimum of five kids. Modernization continues. Hostility with the USSR grows. The joint king thing seems to work out well with the three kingdoms of Iceland, Denmark and Sweden. Occupation of England continues. A mandatory youth organization is formed. An invasion of Norway commences.
  • NOTE: I am playing as MP's vassal of Scandinavia which I have permission to do.  The major things I have permission from MP are
  • Vote to expel the Federation:
  • Aye
    • ​Scandinavia
  • Nay
    • ​Oceania- Andrew, you are not in the Axis< Do you think I'm stupid?? I said right below, you know if you read that I am not an Ally or Axis, but neutral. If you read you'd know why I say nay. Reading is a good tool to have.
    • Federation (Also, I'm one of the core members so you can't expel me.)
  • ​Abstain
  • Discussion: I am not a member of any side but this whole thing makes no since. Why can't you seek a more peaceful option?
  • For the record, you see that war on Norway? He just LOST that war on Norway. Badly. Like, REALLY badly.
  • France The reconstruction and modernization of the French military continues as planned. The decommissioning of current vessels and aircraft begins, with their materials being recycled to save funds for the new military. The borders with Germany, Spain and the northern coastline of the Channel are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The designs received from the United States for the new ships of the French Navy begin to be constructed, but not before being augmented by French engineers, with a focus on heavy armour, as well as greater firepower. As a result the French Forrestal-class aircraft carrier design, Forrest Sherman-class destroyer design, and the Providence-class cruiser design are renamed - to Auriol-class aircraft carrier, Fantasque-class destroyer, and Colbert-class cruiser, respectively. Construction then begins as planned, with the end goal of having two carrier groups within the next year and a half. We thank the Swiss government for their delivery, and begin the organization of these tanks and trucks into the French Army, and begin training the military in use of the Karbiner Model 1940 assault rifle. We also begin production of the EH-40 design, co-produced with the Federation. We also begin training in the interceptor and ground attack aircraft provided by the Federation. The recruitment drive for the elite fighting force, the French Foreign Legion continues, with the goal of 10,000 troops hoping to be reached in next year and a half. The strict membership criteria, however, shall not be recanted on. The regular army also continues its increase, and is expected to reach its goal of 200,000 in the same time frame. The French economy's growth continues to accelerate, with no sign of stopping. With another batch of economic reforms being announced by President Auriol, this time focusing on income tax. The 'Free European Movement' continues to grow in Paris, with support spreading to other areas of France. A branch opens in Belgium as well. which quickens the speed in which it is entering France's sphere of influence. Aid is secretly shipped to the IRA, SSG and ERA, with the goal of launching attacks and co-ordinating rebellion against the Celtic Union. A French funded and supported rebel group is set up as well, taking the name of the 'Free European' movement, calling itself the Free European Army, or FEA. The H-bomb received from the United States is secretly analyzed by leading French engineers and nuclear physicists, with the goal of reverse engineering the design, which is expected to take place within the next six months. Uranium is also secretly mined in Algeria, and shipped back the French mainland, for use in nuclear research along this path. A new colonial policy is announced by President Auriol. Within the next six months, all current colonial citizens of the French nation shall be granted the same rights as French citizens of the home nation. Which is received positively across all French colonies. Secretly, members of colonial opposition groups are bribed, and as a result disturbance in the colonies lowers for the first time in years. The French colony of Madagascar is greatly re-inforced by the French military, and any dissent is put down in peaceful manner. As a test of a future plan, Madagascar is allowed to democratically elect representatives to the French Parliament, and as a result support for the French government in the colony sky rockets. Supporters of a French Union, a replacement to the current French colonial empire, is suggested by some in Parliament, and when the Madagascan representatives are asked about this, they offer positive support. As a result a referendum is planned in Madagascar in the next six months, to offer the chance to unite with the French nation In this union.
    • Federation Dip: We offer technical data of nuclear bombs and power.
    • French Diplomacy: We gratefully accept this offer, and our nuclear physicists and engineers begin utilizing this data to great effect.

 1956.5

Various resistance groups in England and southern Scotland continue to gain traction but limit their activities to minor resistance against the Germans, and a much larger resistance against the CU. Elements of the former British armed forces which survived the invasion organize a greater rebel front against the CU and ironically co-ordinate with the IRA.

I call BS. The IRA would never help the British. They would begin exterminating them as soon as they could. Trust me on this. Spartian300 (talk) 18:32, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

What the heck is that supposed to mean? The IRA helping the British is just not possible. Spartian300 (talk) 20:06, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

Look your by biritsh standards unjustly ruling these areas, in all capacities the British could very well restore island as an indie nation in exchange for help in overthrowing the CU which as it stands hasnt made the best global impact. ~~idk

Why wouldn't they? This is now three mods telling you to leave it alone. Touch it again, Spar, and face consequences.

For the last time ... The IRA hates Britain. The Celtic Union is centred in Dublin. Therefore, the IRA would support them.

This is Scraw and I say no IRA support.

The IRA wants independence for Ireland. Not rule over Britain. If Resistance groups said Irish Independence, they would help them.

Four mods, assuming I am still a mod.

With the lack of the British navy patroling the seas, piracy off East and West Africa becomes a major problem and has even started major issues stemming from the pirates' ability to traffic stolen weapons from various nations to rebel groups and resistance cells illegally.

The Soviet civil war ends leaving large amounts of rebuilding to be done.

The Federation capital is being hailed as one of the world's newest architectual capitals due to its use of modernist architecture - among other more Utopian-ideal architecture.

This is an ATL equivalent to Brasilia and is legit. Screw off 

Probably. BUT UTOPIA-STYLE xDDDDDDD! I just keep on imagining something out of 1984 ...

Brasilia is considered a Utopian-styled city which means Utopian City plan which is literally what my new capital is ... Check out the Brasilia city page and search for Utopia if you don't believe me.

It's funny. I believe you. But it's funny. It was funny OTL too.

The Oceanian armed forces continue to expand as does their economy and population.

The US Army rangers conduct a clandestine operation in Mexico intent on wiping out various vigilante and cartel groups emerging in the area.

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • Norway: We build up our military to protect ourself from what is going on in the CU. We continue to modernize our nation.
    • Greenland: The military continues to work on prototype missiles. We are still exporting oil to the world.
  • Egypt: Begins to redeploy the military to deal with the problems in Africa. We begin to attack known pirate vessels and bases and we send military police with APC's to South Africa to police the nation.
  • You can't reach South Africa and you have no reason to be there. -Feud
  • Celtic Union: After the end of the Celtic-Norwegian war, we begin rebuilding our army. It is decided to re-open trade with Norway, and we request to open an embassy to improve relations. Meanwhile, with so many rebel groups, it is decided to mount all-out war against them, and we begin hunting them down. The economy is expanded and the military is rebuilt. Modernization continues in Scotland and Wales. Erin O'Neil is forced out of office, and Sean O'Donnell is elected President. He steps down as head of the army and begins rebuilding much of Cornwall. Celtic Airways begins flying to South America. Automotive companies begin building cars and trains, and railways are rebuilt or constructed across the country.  
  • Switzerland: We produce 125 A2 Bobcat helicopters, 75 for the Army and 50 for the Air Force. The Air defense purchases 24 Pilatus 2 attack aircraft and 36 EFW N-20 interceptors to replace the aging inventory of defense fighters. We complete our section of the pipeline and begin to construct outbranches. The army purchases 125 Panzer MA-56 artillery pieces. The vehicle was quite easy to produce, using the same chassis as the Panzer 54, just upgunned, and less armor.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth:The Volcoff Group continues to make record profits. Orion Industries is founded and immediately begins to buy up large amounts of rare earth minerals. Orion works on building better computers. In partnership with several Swiss companies, Orion hopes to miniaturize computing. These new technologies are coming along well, with several promising prototypes. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The Oceania Space Adminstration, in concert with Oceanic AeroCorp, launches its first rocket into space, while it carried no cargo, it marks a milestone in the President's goal of launching a satellite into space. The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue. Oceania AeroCorp works with Switzerland to design a new line of helicopters. With the navy almost up to size, spending is decreased to allow for more money to be injected into the space programme. A large stipend is sent to Oceania AeroCorp to aid in rocket research, which is coming along rather well. Oceania continues to exert influence on the Philippine Islands. Relations with the Federation continue to improve. The Deptartment of the Army forms the Nuclear Engineer's taskforce, to control and monitor the construction of nuclear weapons in Australia. A military installation in the middle of the desert becomes the site for many strange new inventions and prototypes, the locals around the area believe aliens have finally come to visit earth, sparking a media frenzy and several large blockbuster films like Invasion:Earth! and Resistance. Orion Industries offers to sell rare earth minerals to the Federation to aid in building computers. Orion also offers to sell to Saudi Arabia. New APC models are designed including the MI-Valient. (M113 varient) Oceania AeroCorp, with partnership from the Swiss, invent a new type of helicopter, capable of slightly larger ranges and a larger cargo hold. It is named the A2 Bobcat, and begins going into production. The Celtic Union is repremanded for their hostility toward other nations. All CU citizens are forbidden from traveling to the Commonwealth.
    • CU Dip: We have learned our lesson following the failure in Norway, and request that we are allowed to have our citzens travel to Oceanic again.
    • Swiss Dip: We send our rocket experts to Oceania to aid your space program. We request to purchase 100 MI-Valiant APC's.
  • Zhukov continues to implement new reforms. The Supreme Soviet now properly represents all SSRs and ethnic minorities. Infrastructure continues to be rebuilt and the area in and around Chernobyl is declared a no-go zone. De-Stalinization continues as some political prisoners are released from gulags and Siberia. The space program was greatly advanced during the war and a few prototype satellites were used during the war. The satellite Sputnik 1 is launched toward the end of this year. A bill begins to be drafted that would allow voting for the Premier and Supreme Soviet as well as allowing the creation of new SSRs at any given time with enough support. It will also drastically reduce the influence of Stalinism. Relations are bettered with the PR Iran.
  • Saudi Arabia: Influence of Oman and Iraq continue: In order to raise population, Saudi Arabia begins to offer benefits to families who have more than five children. We pay the first half of our debt to Switzerland, and we begin to reverse engineer the vessels purchased. We begin to research our own battleship designs. The ULMG is made the offical weapon of the ASF.Industry is expanded in all ASF nations, and infrastructure is improved as well. In order to allow for easier administration, Palestine is split into two separate nations, Jordan and Palestine. We accept Oceania's deal to purchase rare earth minerals. A non-aggression pact is requested with Greece and Eygpt. In secret, we offer Greece our planned invasion of Syria. We begin to prepare for an invasion of South Yemen, as it shares a common history and culture with North Yemen.
  • Greece Dip: Greece wishes not to invade Syria as we have succesfully influenced them for a while - as well as South Kurdistan, and we do agree on a non-aggression pact between the Saudi bloc and the Greek bloc.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The vassalage of South Kurdistan Begins. The first gauss cannon prototype is finished, a small weapon to be used in naval ships. A fifth, sixth and seventh carrier are made and the creation of a small nuclear program in Athens, While this, the army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well. While this, In Constantinople the creation of a Turkish party to be opened in the Imperial Senate of Greece and the Anatolian Assembly. For now the Turks remaining in Greek Anatolia and most of Anatolia are given the option of going to the Turkish-led state in Konya if they wish and or to swear allegiance to the Greek leadership or the regional leadership. Greece seeks to join the United Nations after much consideration by both Turkish and Greek leaders.
  • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts of vassalizing South Kurdistan.
  • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • France The reconstruction and modernization of the French military continues as planned. The decommissioning of current vessels and aircraft continues, with their materials being recycled to save funds for the new military. The borders with Germany, Spain and the northern coastline of the Channel are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the first two carrier groups being completed ahead of schedule due to a speed of construction unheard of since the war. The organization of the tanks and trucks into the French Army, and the training of the military in use of the Karbiner Model 1940 assault rifle, is completed. A large number of EH-40 tanks are completed, and are quickly integrated into the French Army alongside the new modern tanks provided by the Swiss. The training with the interceptor and ground attack aircraft provided by the Federation is completed, and the new carrier groups are outfitted with them. The recruitment drive for the elite fighting force, the French Foreign Legion, is completed ahead of schedule. With the same being true of the regular army. President Auriol thanks the French military industrial establishment for the rapid action it has taken in arming the nation with a new fighting force, and also extends his warmest thanks to every new member of the French military. The French economy's growth continues to accelerate, with no sign of stopping. With another batch of economic reforms being announced by President Auriol, this time focusing on the spread of wealth to the French colonies, in an attempt to alleviate many of the social problems present there. The 'Free European Movement' grows exponentially in Paris, with support spreading far and wide within France. The branch in Belgium grows as well. which quickens the speed in which it is entering France's sphere of influence. Aid is secretly shipped to the IRA, SSG and ERA, with the goal of launching attacks and co-ordinating rebellion against the Celtic Union. The French funded and supported rebel group, the Free European Army, or FEA, gains members in the British Isles, and a successful attack is launched on a Celtic Union politician. After reverse engineering an H-bomb design from the one received from the United States, and utilizing the technical data relating to nuclear weaponry provided from the Federation, the French military successfully creates a working H-bomb, which is tested in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Madagascar. A number of low yield devices are created for an upcoming military engagement. As outlined by President Auriol, all colonial citizens of the French nation are granted the same rights as French citizens of the home nation. This is received extremely enthusiastically, and is seen as a great leap from past treatment. All around the French colonies, the population preach Auriol's name. Madagascar holds the planned unification from the start of the year, and due to the recent actions of Auriol relating to colonial policy, votes to enter union with the French home nation. As a result of this the French Union is formed. With all citizens, be it from France or Madagascar, having the same rights as one another. Due to this success, President Auriol announces that a referendum shall be held in Algeria in six months, to see if they wish to follow the same path. Following years of brazen military action by the Celtic Union, and the threat they are seen to pose to European peace, the French government decides to act. They decide that an invasion must take place, and a democratically elected government must replace the current tyrannical rule of the CU. A tactical nuclear strike is performed on the cities of Penicuik, Fife, Dundalk, and Limerick, with the express goal being the destruction of the naval, aviation, and army bases present there. Very low yield devices are used, in an effort to minimize both civilian casualties and the resulting fallout. Due to the unexpected nature of this attack, the strikes get through as planned. The newly created carrier groups occupy the Irish Sea, and begin attacking any remaining CU military power remaining, with the newly modernized and expanded French Army, and French Foreign Legion, leading the ground assault. With all forms of defence lying in nuclear ruin, they face little opposition. The funded rebel groups also aid in the invasion, and wipe out any fleeing members of the elite in roadside bombings and assassinations. Before the end of the year, the Celtic Union has faced complete and utter defeat, and the occupation by French forces begins.
    • Due to our former relations with the Celtic Union, the Saudi government would like to confirm with France and the Federation that we will not take hostile action against them (I know I couldn't do anything anyway, but I just want to make sure.)
    • Oceania D: Oceania supports the French decision and is committed to aiding in the reconstruction after the war. The Oceanic branch of the Red Cross will be mobilized to aid those harmed in war.
  • French Diplomacy: We reassure the Saudi government that no ill will is held against them.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues major construction on the capital of Santa Salvación with middle income and luxury housing both being built. The city is developed in a modernist sense but also due to some concerns the city planners decide against building the city in superblocks and go for smaller blocks. By this point many of the city's major and most minor governmental structures have been completed and the Federation government has successfully moved to the new city. With about 60,000 full time inhabitants the city continues to grow with it being planned to house just under one million people. The city planners also getting more funding than previously, though, are able to include large public areas such as parks and monuments taking cues from the United States capital. The city continues its exponential growth with the inhabitants of the city predicted to be nearly 200,000 by the end of the year with enough housing and developing jobs and resource jobs to house these people. The Federation also manages to pull demographics from nearly all corners of the country with a certain mixing occuring in the new city and its developing satellite towns. A large deposit of titanium is discovered in the Paraguayan state of Alto Parana and the resource companies begin looking to invest in exploitation but run into issues from local state government. However in Brazil, in the state of Piauí, the decent sized titanium and vanadium deposits are more readily exploited due to Brazil's previous pro-exploit procedures. This development into a major industry is suspected to take at least a year before meaniningful material comes out of the site. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers -  next to Saudi Arabia - and begins to competitively push oil prices and uses much of the oil money to work on light infrastructure and begins the build up of a national surplus. The Federation also receives the improved designs of the EE-40 heavy tank from France and taking these designs the Brazilians begin to manufacture combat frames for the army and the marines to use. The Federation military passes on orders for new APC's IFV's and other logistical and combat vehicles. The new cargo transport aircraft is also produced for mass purposes. The Federation airline industry takes off with some of the first major international flights on major carriers being offered to the United States - among other areas. The Federation also continues its space program now using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, with a large deal of Rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins.. The population of the Federation reaches 114.4 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet. The Lusophone population growth lags behind the Hispanic population growth but still outnumbers them heavily. The Federation fields nearly 20 more attack subs and in secret has three of them retrofitted for special forces uses. The Federation establishes a decent amount of influence in both Cuba and Bolivia - enough so that the Bolivian president has been rated pro-Federation. The Cuban influence, however, is relying heavily on the eventual election of Fidel Castro to the presidency. The Federation special forces now reorganized into the Espadas (navy/marines) Ghosts (army) and the Red Berets (air force). In secret, the three retrofitted subs are able to make their move toward the Celtic Union with the intent of seizing control of their government officials. The operation is scheduled to begin in six months time and the subs remain just outside of the CU's territorial waters waiting for the order. With the French invasion beginning carried out of the CU the Federation special forces conduct a clandestine operation securing various CU held British prisoners releasing some notable men such as Winston Churchill. The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements.
  • French Diplomacy: We thank the Federation for this act of freedom, and airlift Churchill to an undisclosed location in France for his own safety.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas show no major immigrant increase in Federation citizens throughout the two areas but show some increases in Spanish Americans. The Guyanas also begin to to allow for some foreign investment reserving most of it for its South American neighbors. The major gold and aluminum industries, however, remain majority nationalized as they allow for the economic growth of both. Sugar and other cash crops also serve to boost the economy to a decent degree as well. The Guyanas regardless of their separation are able to grow closer as the Brazilian government and their friendliness in allowing the areas to deal with the Brazilian economic bloc has left a lasting good impression upon the people. The Guyanan peoples once again hope for the acquisition of Suriname but due to their lesser stature and the SADC's various other commitments the confederal council does not think the acquisition of Suriname is likely. The Guyanan Confed is able to convince its populace that becoming an eventual Federation member is ideal as long as Suriname is acquired. The Confederation begins contact with Suriname working to integrate it into the Confederation soon.
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to do the trick as the money is used in the right ways. This has allowed the economy to come back in a small way. The government prepares to have elections in 1953 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially join Brazil's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 9.1 million. Peru begins to grow accustomed to its growing economic position and pursues better economic ties with the Federation.
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation supports the creation of the Federation. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antille begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural reorganization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter island air travel.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica remains impartial to the creation of the Federation.
  • The United States continues to improve its military technologically, while the research into all fields continues. The economy is maintained and more policies are created to prevent recession. Infrastructure is also improved, while the public services are improved. United States Space Programm continues to remain on schedule, with a satellite launch planned for next year. The same thing occurs in the vassal states of Mexico and Cambodia.

  • ​Vatican City: The Pope, dismayed by the bloodshed in recent years, calls for the UN to start actively punishing nations that attacked unprovoked and to do their job. He announces that he will be visiting the British Isle, and condemns France for the invasion. He points out that public support had turned against the government, and that the bloodshed they had caused is disgraceful. He calls for the complete freedom of Germany Vassals.
  • Spar, you have been kicked from this game.
  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • Norway: We happily take our land we win in the war against the CU. Our nation continues to modernize to become a strong nation.
    • Greenland: The military continues to work on prototype missiles. We are still exporting oil to the world. 
  • Switzerland: We continue to modernize our banking system. Some people in the government request to purchase a 50 mile strip of land from Switzerland to the Mediterranean Sea from the French government. We lay out plans for a humanitarian based navy, planning an amphibious transport dock, a hospital ship, 20 patrol boats, five landing ships for supplies, six corvettes, and two destroyers. We arrest a group of Italian soldiers caught crossing the border. According to their commander, these incursions have been occurring since 1948. We build up our active troop numbers to 100,000 and reserve to 150,000. The army purchases 50 SIG CBF-01 missile artillery batteries. They each have a ten-rack of missiles each carrying a 100 pound warhead. They fire in a barrage and are used alongside the other motorized artillery pieces to provide additional support.
    • Swiss D: We request to purchase a strip of land from your nation, France, to construct a port city. While your government decides on this request, we ask to begin construction on a hospital ship and an amphibious transport dock.
    • French Diplomacy: We shall consider this request over the coming months. In the meantime, we agree to the design and construction of hospital ships and amphibious transport docks in the south of France in a joint project with Switzerland.
    • Swiss D: We only plan on operating one of each, but the French may build as many as they feel are necessary.
  • Saudi Arabia: Influence on Oman and Iraq continues. Expansion of the ASF and the Saudi bloc's economy continues. We continue to work on the Swiss tech we purchased hoping to be able to produce it ourselves later this year. Our population grows at a rate of roughly 90,000 per year (OTL was about 80,000 at this point in time). The King begins to support the creation of colleges and higher education. Laws regarding non-Muslim foreigners are loosened. Invasion of South Yemen begins and ends with a total Saudi victory. North Yemen annexes South Yemen, and the new nation is called United Yemen or just Yemen and remains a Saudi puppet/vassal. Reconstruction begins. Some advisors to the king believe that Kuwait and Yemen should be annexed into Saudi proper, but others feel that the already unstable region would be even harder to manage.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: The Volcoff Group continues to make record profits. Orion Industries is founded and immediately begins to buy up large amounts of rare earth minerals. Orion works on building better computers. In partnership with several Swiss companies, Orion hopes to miniaturize computing. These new technologies are coming along well, with several promising prototypes. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast.

The Oceanic Space Adminstration launches and was met with success. Celebration erupt around the Commonwealth over this monumentous moment for the Oceanic people. Work begins on improving rocket tech further and to build satellites and a possible manned mission in the future.
    • Saudi Arabia accepts.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The vassalage of South Kurdistan begins.

  • Nigeria holds its first elections post-independence of Britain. The Igbo-friendly Consolidation Party wins in a coalition with the Nigerian Democrats, which are more socialist. The first Prime Minister, Nnamdi Azikiwe, declares that the new nation will be one of peace and democracy, and announces a new plan to begin making use of Nigeria's vast oil reserves, some of the largest on the planet. Seeing the economic and political rise of the Oceanic Commonwealth, we offer a trading pact in which Nigeria will supply oil to them in exchange for military and economic aid. A similar deal is offered on a lesser scale to France. The military is expanded somewhat, and refugees from Britain include several members of the army, and now the Resistance. Nigeria is declared open to any refugees from the former British Empire. The military is built up to stop any pirating of the oil in the Delta or any Islamist activity in the North. We begin to influence Cameroon.
    • ​Federation Dip: The Federation offers investment into the Nigerian Oil industry as well offering major trade in food stuffs until the Nigerian agricultural base is retooled for domestic use.
    • Oceanic D: The Oceanic Commonwealth would like to extend formal relations and would like to accept the Nigerian offer.
  • Your country has a moderate amount. I will admit that it will be good for your economy, though. just don' over exaggerate that.
  • French Union: The reconstruction and modernization of the French military is completed, with the focus turning to expansion and augmentation of current forces. The decommissioning of obsolete vessels and aircraft is also completed, with any funds not used on the new military being used as a stimulus package for the improvement of the French Union's African member's economies and infrastructure. The borders with Germany, Spain and the northern coastline of the Channel are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. Thanks to this continued program, any foreign invasion from these frontiers will be met with impenetrable resistance. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. The four French carrier groups are now sent split into two groups of two, with two patrolling the North Sea, and the other two patrolling the Atlantic off the west coast of Africa. The French Army is now completely outfitted with EH-40 tanks, and has one of the best armored divisions on the planet. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, further spreading government funds to the French colonies, and the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly. The 'Free European Movement' is now a national force within France. A controlling majority of representatives in Parliament now count themselves as members, with President Auriol himself being an adamant supporter. The central ideal of this movement, a Federation of democratic European states, now looks like a feasible goal due to mass support across national boundaries. The first grand example of this is in Belgium, where a 'Free European' based government is elected in a landslide due to years of French influence, and as a result the elected government is extremely French leaning, to the point where it is classified as a puppet government by the international community. The French funded and supported rebel group, the Free European Army, or FEA, gains members in the British Isles, and after the fall of the Celtic Union, now focuses on supporting rebel groups in Wales and England. The French nuclear arsenal is rapidly expanded, barely passing the hundred mark, with yields of various sizes, for use in various situations. The French Space Agency, or FSA, is founded. Their starting funding is $250 million, with the goal of placing an artificial satellite in space within the next two years. We ask the governments of the Soviet Union, Germany, FA, OC, and United States, if they would be willing to sell the designs, or technical data required, to reach this goal. Algeria holds the planned unification referendum from last year, and due to the recent actions of Auriol relating to colonial policy, votes to enter union with the French home nation. As a result of this the French Union grows to three states. This is seen as the highlight of President Auriol's Presidency, as this secures the future of Frances largest, and most important colony, as a member of the French Union. Due to this grand success, President Auriol announces that two referendums shall be held in six months time, in Morocco and French Equatorial Africa, to see if they wish to follow the same path. The former lands of the Celtic Union are separated into the states of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man under French administration. They continue to be occupied by French forces, and will be for the immediate future. This is accepted with jubilation in Ireland, as for the first time in centuries they are their own state. We send an offer to Norway, for the purchase of Greenland, offering $100 million, as well as the right to free oil for the next twenty years from the state.
    • Ireland: The first Irish government is elected, with a coalition of pro-French and pro-'Free European' parties taking power. A large number of representatives of these parties are former members of the IRA, who are now pro-French due to the rebel support from the French government against the now defunct Celtic Union. Areas hit by nuclear strikes are quarantined, but due to the low yield of devices used, fallout and damage are minimal. Ties begin to deepen with Scotland, Belgium, Wales, and the Isle of Man as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring  France, of course.
    • Scotland: The first Scottish government is elected, with a coalition of pro-French and pro-'Free European' parties taking power. A large number of representatives of these parties are former members of the dissolved British government, and as a result an anti-German attitude is present within the government. Areas hit by nuclear strikes are quarantined, but due to the low yield of devices used, fallout and damage are minimal. Ties begin to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Wales, and the Isle of Man as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Wales: The first Welsh government is elected, with a coalition of pro-French and pro-'Free European' parties taking power. A large number of representatives of these parties are former members of the dissolved British government, and as a result an anti-German attitude is present within the government. As no areas within Wales were hit by nuclear strike, no quarantine is required. Ties begin to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Isle of Man: The Isle of Man sets up a free and democratically elected government, with a coalition of pro-French and pro-'Free European' parties taking power. This government is nearly completely made up of Pre-CU Manx politicians, and as a result they hold a grudge against the foreign oppression. As no areas within the Isle of Man were hit by nuclear strike, no quarantine is required. Ties begin to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Scotland, and the Wales as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Belgium: The pro-French government of Belgium begins to re-inforce their German and Netherlands facing borders, on recommendation of France. French arms, as well as industrial equipment, are shipped to Belgium from France in an attempt to improve the Belgian military, as well as the economy. Ties begin to deepen with Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and the Isle of Man, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Norwegian Diplomacy: We give you Greenland for you to have.
    • French Diplomacy: We thank the Norwegian government, and ship the funds as promised.
    • Oceanic Diplomacy: Oceania is willing to help fund the French Space Programme and offers to help in building equipment and computer systems, citing the fact that Oceania holds the largest amount of rare earth minerals that are required in computer systems.
    • French Diplomacy: We happily accept this offer, and enquire if the Commonwealth would be interested in transporting Oceanic engineers to France to work alongside the FSA.
    • You don't own Belgium. Give independence to Ireland and Scotland ASAP.
    • Ummm why does he have to free them ... there is absolutely no reason to. In fact, they probably welcome that warmly because 1. the CU sucked; 2. the British according to them sucked; and 3. they are their own countries at this point and don't have some crappy government ruling them. Also, Ireland would be incapable of ruling itself without support. It was nuked multiple times.
    • I have been influencing Belgium for years now, bringing them into my sphere of influence, so why, after they elect a government that is so French-leaning it can be classified as a puppet, are they not under my control?
    • WTF, Scraw. This is all above the board. 
    • German Secret Diplomacy: Due to the increasing instability in Northern England and growing concern that Germany can not occupy England permanently, at this time Germany proposes to turn it over to France in a period of stages. While this displeases the German people, the high command is sure that this will not result in disaster.
    • French Secret Diplomacy: Whilst the French government is shocked by this offer, they happily, and enthusiastically, accept it. President Auriol personally travels to Berlin, to assure the Nazi High Command, that such a compassionate, and generous offer, shall not be forgotten. Starting immediately French Foreign Legion, as well as Regular Army forces, prepare to take over control from Germany in England. They are reminded to treat the Germans with the utmost respect, as it is only on their part that this is possible.
  • Germany: The people of Germany are still celebrating their victory over the British and the liberation of their English brethren. Despite this, the High Command is worried about the performance of its military. The navy and amphibious assault went exactly as planned, but other factors were lacking. The air force did not perform as well against the RAF as predicted, and numerous Panzer VI's had mechanical trouble once on the ground. It is thought that only the advantages of stealth aircraft, surprise, and guided rockets and missiles are the things that let the Luftwaffe triumph and ensure victory for the Germans. As such, the issues with the armed forces are being addressed. The Panzer VI "Leopard" tanks are being inspected and given technical enhancements to improve their capability in the field. The Luftwaffe planes are also put under inspection to improve their capability and dogfighting ability. Rurhstahl missiles are made to replace any used by the Luftwaffe in the invasion. Production of war vehicles and weapons continues to replace any lost by Axis forces in the invasion of Britain. Von Braun moves to Kamerun to work on the German rocket project there, and he continues to work on the designs of the A7 and A8 rockets. A small carrier group along with more troops is sent to German Papua, to counter potential revenge attacks against the colony there. Investment in the colonies continues, and most people in the colonies now speak German as well as have some degree of education. The white population of the colonies still stays relatively low. The German government begins to create decolonization plans to ensure that the colonies remain stable and peaceful once the Germans leave, as the deadline is now only seven years away. Germany also supports Portugal in the struggles in Angola and its other colonies, insisting that the deadline that was agreed upon be respected. Germany also begins to supply the Royalists in Iran. The popularity of the Nazi party reaches an all-time high due to the success of the party in combating Germany's enemies. Following the proposition of other European leaders on a transcontinental pipeline, Albert Speer begins to consider the plan that would ship oil from Norway all the way down to Italy and Greece. The pipeline begins construction in Germany, and Germany continues its work in thermonuclear fusion and nuclear missiles. The first thermonuclear weapon is detonated in Namibia, keeping Germany up to date with the rest of the major powers. Germany begins to work on new upgrades for its tank and jet designs, improving their speed and durability. The armed forces of England, after the elimination of multiple rebel groups, is now largely able to police itselft, although it is certain that violence will continue for a long time. As such, the slow drawback of troops from England begins. Germany launches the first satellite into space on an A10 rocket from Kamerun. New turn tomorrow, I promise!
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich England: The occupation of England by the Axis forces continues. Medical treatment is offered to any who were hurt in the invasion, and special care is given to those who were hurt in atomic detonations. German Wehrmacht troops divide the country into seven military sectors in order to better maintain order in the area. Counterinsurgency operations begin in order to flush out any English rebels, and nightime raids are extremely effective because of the infrared scopes of the STG44. Young-bodied Englishmen are sent on intellectual tours of Germany and Europe, where they are taught useful skills that will help them get ahead in life and to better communicate with the occupation when they return home. This is actually done to reduce the number of English resisting occupation. In terms of government, the royal family is re-instated in a reduced role, and none of them are harmed. Oswald Mosely is put in charge as Prime Minister. Slowly but surely manufacturing businesses and factories spring up again to bring life to the English economy. An English military begins training to help the Germans in the occupation. An English navy is also started up again, but is as of now only a few destroyers and lesser ships like minelayers. An English air force is held off for now, but is planned. Supplies are imported to England to help it rebuild from Germany by helicopter. Resistance groups grow in northern England. The Sword of Saint George (SSG) is a monarchist rebel group, while the English Republican Army (ERA) is a Republican-Communist rebel group. Both groups are in the north near York and have created some havoc for English and German troops. German and English troops wage a successful campaign against a major ERA base near York, capturing or killing the majority of its command structure due to an informant's information. The EYEP begins to turn more and more English males into thinking that Germany might not be such a bad nation after all.
  • Reichskommissariat Konigsreich Niederlande: Dutch troops continue to assist in the occupation of England, but the majority of them return home along with the fleet. Production of war materials continues to replace anything that was lost in the invasion. Investment in the Guiana colony continues, but a growing number of politicians suggest that the Netherlands begins to withdraw from that area of the world to focus more on events closer to home. German becomes a major language taught in schools, as is English. Border patrols with Belgium increase should any potential conflict break out between the two countries. The government signs on to the English Youth Education Program. Negotiations begin with the Federation regarding the future of Dutch Guiana. Dutch people as well as German military command begin to be brought home. By a referendum, Dutch Guiana and the Antilles is turned over to the Federation. In a similar referendum, the people of the Netherlands decide to join Germany as a federal state. The armed forces of the Netherlands are integrated into the Wehrmact, and the skillful management of Speer begins to make the industry of the Netherlands even more efficient.
  • Czechoslovakia: Military production of goods continues and Czech troops return home. Some politicians begin suggesting to split the nation in two, and create two independent republics, but there are a lot of ideas going around at this time, including the idea of a monarchy. Despite this, none of these ideas gains significant traction yet. Czechoslovakia signs on to the English Youth Education Program.
  • Yugoslavia: The government begins a buildup program to increase the power of the Yugoslavian navy. The armed forces return home after invading Britain. The government also begins to ensure an economic recovery program, to ensure that the economy is stable. The government also begins taking steps toward easing conflict between the different provinces and the king takes a tour of them all to support that endeavor.
  • United States: The United States continues to improve its infrastructure and maintain its economy. Meanwhile, technological improvement of the United States military continues. The United States launches its first satellite into orbit (if allowed). The Space Program continues, nuclear arsenal is expanded. The same thing occurs in Mexico and Cambodia.

My bad. Fixed. ~ S

Nigeria enters deals with Oceania, providing them with large amounts of oil in exchange for military hardware and experience.

  • Thailand: Thailand continues to build up the military. Infrastructure is improved. More Buddhist temples are built. The vassal of Laos also builds up its military and improves infrastructure.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: The Volcoff Group continues to make record profits. Orion Industries is founded and immediately begins to buy up large amounts of rare earth minerals. Orion works on building better computers. In partnership with several Swiss companies, Orion hopes to miniaturize computing. These new technologies are coming along well, with several promising prototypes. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent.  The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue. Oceania AeroCorp works with Switzerland to design a new line of helicopters. With the navy almost up to size, spending is decreased to allow for more money to be injected into the space programme. A large stipend is sent to Oceania AeroCorp to aid in rocket research, which is coming along rather well. Oceania continues to exert influence on the Philippine Islands. Relations with the Federation continue to improve. The Department of the Army forms the Nuclear Engineer's task force, to control and monitor the construction of nuclear weapons in Australia. A military installation in the middle of the desert becomes the site for many strange new inventions and prototypes, the locals around the area believe aliens have finally come to visit earth, sparking a media frenzy and several large blockbuster films like Invasion: Earth! and Resistance. New APC models are designed including the MI-Valiant. (M113 variant) Oceania AeroCorp, with partnership from the Swiss, invent a new type of helicopter, capable of slightly larger ranges and a larger cargo hold. It is named the A2 Bobcat, and begins going into production. Oceania still petitions the UN. The Oceanic Space Adminstration decides to send scientists to France to help establish their agency. The Agency extends an offer of co-operation to the Federation. The Red Cross still sends aid to the English Isles, though it has slowed as the Irish Republican Army continues to attack shipments and steals them for their own use. France is contacted with this issue.
  • Saudi Arabia: Influnece on Oman and Iraq continues. The splitting of Palestine and Jordan is finalized. We begin to build our first battleship, which has been called the Mecca-1. We begin to research helicopters and submarines, the first prototype is expected in two or three years. We also begin to build jets and patrol boats based on Swiss designs. The king, at the urging of his advisors, begins to work on an atomic bomb, and requests Oceania's help in producing one. Economy is improved, and to speed up economic expansion, we push our oil at competitive prices. Industry and infrastructure is improved. Reconstruction continues in Yemen. Air force bases are built in the Saudi bloc. Reforms continue, spreading into Jordan, Kuwait and Yemen.
    • Oceanic D: Oceania agrees to selling uranium to Saudi Arabia, but requests that oil prices remain favourable toward Oceanic interests.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues. The first gauss cannon prototype is finished, a small weapon to be used in naval ships. A fifth, sixth and seventh carrier are made and the creation of a small nuclear program in Athens, While this, the army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well. While this, in Constantinople the creation of a Turkish party to be opened in the Imperial Senate of Greece and the Anatolian Assembly. For now the Turks remaining in Greek Anatolia and most of Anatolia are given the option of going to the Turkish-led state in Konya if they wish and or to swear allegiance to the Greek leadership or the regional leadership. Greece seeks to join the United Nations after much consideration by both Turk and Greek leaders.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts of vassalizing South Kurdistan.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Norway: Military is built up. We train our troops to become stronger. In our factories we make all kinds of military vehicles in mass production. Our economy expands. The king sets up at team of scientists to work on making an atomic bomb. We push our oil at competitive prices to match Saudi Arabia's prices.
    • You have been occupied by Scandinavia.
    • Oct, this is not your place to cross things out, and so far as I know he was vassalized - not occupied. Cut it out -Feud
    • Stupid, Feud, did not do that
  • Egypt: Begins to finsh off the pirates in East Africa. Military is sent to the Libyan border to invade Libya and Tunisia. To free the colonies fromt the Fascist state of Italy. Military police continue to police South Africa. We ask for an alliance with Switzerland. Military is improved. Begins to influence Sudan. Begins to discover how to put TV in color and begins to build our first tank.
  • You don't have troops in South Africa. Stop trying.
  • 'Nigeria 'continues to influence Cameroon. The military is expanded with large amounts of aid from the Oceanic Commonwealth. We agree to the Federation deal for oil and aid. The PM makes a speech urging more exploitation of the oil reserves, as well as encouraging, in the north, the building of factories and the like. With our large population, we have a huge working base, the largest in Africa, and this is worked on with gusto. Seven new textile factories are built, along with 18 new factories building other materials, including one military one. Some unrest in the army is swiftly put down. The economy grows.
    • Back off Kamerun. It is still a German colony, and will be part of the German Commonwealth afterward. Don't try anything.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues major construction on the capital of Santa Salvación with middle income and luxury housing both being built. The city is developed in a modernist sense but also due to some concerns the city planners decide against building the city in superblocks and go for smaller blocks. By this point many of the city's major and most minor governmental structures have been completed and the Federation government has successfully moved to the new city. With about 260,000 full time inhabitants the city continues to grow with it being planned to house just under one million people. The city planners, also getting more funding than previously, though, are able to include large public areas such as parks and monuments taking cues from the United States capital. The city continues its exponential growth with the inhabitants of the city predicted to be nearly 400,000 by the end of the year with enough housing and developing jobs and resource jobs to house these people. The Federation also manages to pull demographics from nearly all corners of the country with a certain mixing occuring in the new city and its developing satellite towns. A large deposit of titanium is discovered in the Paraguayan state of Alto Parana and the resource companies begin looking to invest in exploitation and finally passes Paraguay's red tape. Brazil, in the state of Piauí, the decent sized titanium and vanadium deposits are more readily exploited due to Brazil's previous pro-exploit procedures and this material is considered for tanks, and vehicles and even some building construction. This development into a major industry is suspected to take at least a year before meaningful material comes out of the site. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers - next to Saudi Arabia - and begins to competitively push oil prices and uses much of the oil money to work on light infrastructure and begins the build up of a national surplus. The Federation also receives the improved designs of the EE-40 heavy tank from France and taking these designs the Brazilians begin to manufacture combat frames for the army and the marines to use. The Federation military passes on orders for new APC's IFV's and other logistical and combat vehicles. The new cargo transport aircraft is also produced for mass purposes. The Federation airline industry takes off with some of the first major international flights on major carriers being offered to the United States - among other areas. The Federation also continues its space program incorporating new designs in rockets and the like even using titanium in some designs for its lightness, with the Guyana space center up and running the Federation launches a rocket into orbit with success and begins looking into a satellite. using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers. With a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway. The population of the Federation reaches 120.4 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet. The Lusophone population growth lags behind the Hispanic population growth but still outnumbers them heavily. The Federation fields nearly 20 more attack subs and in secret has three of them retrofitted for special forces use. This puts the submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations . The Federation establishes a decent amount of influence in both Cuba and Bolivia - enough so that the Bolivian president has been rated pro-Federation and more pro-Federation legislation and talk is going around the country.  The Cuban influence expands heavily with Fidel Castro and another politician both being heavily pro-Federation. The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation deploys the Espadas in secret to Colombia right along the Colombian-Venezuelan border and they begin to act like a group of soldiers that were not given their due. Their expert operations record allows for the men to cause utter havoc in rural regions of the country. All identifying marks to the Federation are scrubbed as well, and almost all the men are exclusively Hispanic. The Federation also begins development of a new group of weapon systems with guns of all classes under development as well as for export to allies and special case countries. (They are particularly close to the US OTL M-16, Car-15 SMG, MP5, LAW, and various HMG's and LMG's). The Federation also begins the second round of modernization of its fleet bringing more ships into service - particularly the new Asuncion class destroyers, and Salvação class guided missile cruisers. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is put under works. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing. The Federation also makes a major breakthrough in thermonuclear weaponry and begins to look at a major detonation of the weapon.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas - particularly former British and French Guyana - show a decent amount of immigration from eErope, Suriname is fully included into the Confederation which with various exiled government officials from the Netherlands, Britain and France form a coalition governmental party and reform the country into a Federation as well as a new additions to the Federation. Due to some technicalities the Guyanan Federation will be included over a period of the next year. Alongside this, some economic co-operation and integration into the Federation begins with the Federal dollar beginning to pass up local currencies. The gold industry in Guyana begins to enlarge.
    • Peru: The transitional government is able to fully stabilize itself and uses SADC monitored troops to keep the peace as well as its police. The loans begin to be paid back. The economy has come back in a moderate way. The government prepares to have elections in 1958 and the two most promising candidates have proven that they wish to right the wrongs of the previous government and officially remain with the Federation's economic bloc allowing for foreign investment into the nation's gold mines. Peru's population grows to about 9.7 million. Peru begins to grow accustomed to its growing economic position and pursues better economic ties with the Federation. Gold is heavily exploited.
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation supports the creation of the Federation. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antilles begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural re-organization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the antilles islands once held by Germany.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica seeks better relations with Cuba, the Domincan Republic, Haiti and begins to allow for major foreign investment from the Federation.
  • The USSR continues to rebuild. More reforms are passed. On 10 October, Zhukov presents his "Grand Plan" to the Supreme Soviet and the individual SSRs. Its fate is to be decided based on popular vote in SSRs which will be carried into the Supreme Soviet on a per representative basis. The economy and industry are built up. The Russian SFSR gives land to the Mongolian SSR, expanding it.
  • Germany: German troops begin to withdraw from England, although they leave the English troops well trained for their task. French forces begin to take over in England, particularly in Northumbria at the moment. The German troops coming home and the citizens supporting them begin to become disillusioned with the government for waging such a war, but the idea of a civil war is unlikely. The returning troops are sent off to the east to relax but also to re-inforce the borders there. Germany now begins to turn toward improving the status of German infrastructure and living conditions. The Trans-Europe oil pipeline continues construction and has reached the center of Germany, where it will split off toward France, Italy and Yugoslavia. Further expansion of the German navy continues, as well as continued maintenance of German jets and tanks. New models of jets and tanks begin to be explored as well. Down in Kamerun, von Braun continues to work on the German rocket project. Here he has successfully miniaturized a nuclear weapon to be able to fit on an A10 rocket. Another satellite is launched up into space after the previous one burned up on re-entry. Germany's economic success only continues on the integration of the Netherlands into the German system.
    • Czechoslovakia: Military production continues. The government begins to consider splitting Ruthenia into its own constituent part of the nation. Construction begins of the Trans-European pipeline to link it up with Romania and Bulgaria.
    • Yugoslavia: Thanks to German military training, the armed forces are able to keep the constituent provinces as part of the nation. Work on the Yugoslav Royal Navy increases in order to make it a major power in the Mediterranean. As such, construction of the first aircraft carrier and battleship begins, supported by German investment.
    • Vassals will come tomorrow, I promise.
    • Post as vassals. Still, you're good.
  • As the debate over my states is finished, I shall now post.
  • French Union: The French military continues to be expanded and augmented. With the focus being on recruitment within the French Union's African members, and updating the current forces there with the same equipment as mainland French forces. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The defenses on the Channel coastline are dismantled however, due to the handover of England from Germany. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups join the two patrolling the North Sea, leading to the French Navy to have the most powerful presence in the sea. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with a massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. With approval ratings for the French government being at an all time high. The 'Free European Movement' reaches fever pitch within France. It is now a rare sight to see a no supporter in Parliament, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe. The French nuclear arsenal is rapidly expanded, passing the two hundred mark, with yields of various sizes, for use in various situations. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a valuable national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. A number of test rockets are fired, and provide valuable technical data and practical experience. The goal of placing an artificial satellite in space draws closer, and is expected to be reached in a years time. A bright spark within the FSA, makes an enquiry to the French Nuclear Defence Program, about the smallest nuclear device within the French arsenal, receives a reply he wasn't expecting. He goes to his superiors, and fields the idea of a nuclear armed rocket, for use in long range attacks. This is met positively, and he is placed in charge of designing such a weapon. With the project being deemed top secret and being code-named 'Blue Spear'. Morocco and French Equatorial Africa hold their planned unification referendums from last year, and due to the actions of Auriol relating to colonial policy, votes to enter union with the French home nation. As a result of this the French Union grows to five states. Due to this, President Auriol announces that a referendum shall be held in six months time, in Mali, to unite all French lands into a singular state.
    • England: French troops move into Northern England from Scotland and take over control from Germany. The reception is jubilant, as the French troops are seen as liberators. French troops hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils, and hygienic materials. Winston Churchill is airlifted from France to England, and makes a brief tour of the French controlled areas of the country to drum up morale, before returning to his previous location in France. An English government begins to be set up, and almost immediately discussions begin between the Scottish, Welsh, and English governments over a potential revival of the United Kingdom sans Ireland. A large majority of the free population rapidly accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and following President Auriol's speeches on the subject, many begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties begin to deepen with Scotland, Belgium, Wales, Isle of Man, Greenland, Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. The French government asks that attacks by the IRA on OC ships in the North Sea should cease, and this is accepted due to past co-operation. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. Ties begin to deepen with Scotland, Belgium, Wales, Isle of Man, England, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. Following President Auriol's speeches, many begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Scotland: The Scottish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. Discussions begin between the Scottish, Welsh and English governments over a potential revival of the United Kingdom sans Ireland.

Following President Auriol's speeches, many begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Wales: The Welsh government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Discussions begin between the Scottish, Welsh, and English governments over a potential revival of the United Kingdom sans Ireland. Ties begin to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Scotland, Isle of Man, England, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.

    • Greenland: The first Greenlander government is elected, with a coalition of pro-French and pro-'Free European' parties taking power. A large number of representatives of these parties are former members of Norway's political elite, who fled the mainland following the Communist election, and as a result an anti-Communist attitude is present within the government. Ties begin to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Wales, Isle of Man, England, and Scotland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.

  • My bad, thought you meant 1957.5 - Spartian300

1958.0

The Saudi economy continues to expand exponentially as the oil prices are now fully competitive with Norway and the Federation as well as to a lesser degree Canada. 

An atomic accident occurs in the United States. However, without the fissile warhead only the conventional explosive goes off and only harms a few people. Three US companies invent the integrated circuit.

The first major league season occurs in California with the San Francisco Giants beating the Dodgers.

The Colombian government begins attempting to deal with apparently well-armed secessionists in rural areas along the Venezuelan border. They are believed to be radicals that gained military equipment as leftovers from Venezuela's civil war.

The English, Scots and Welsh, free from the CU and Germany, begin limited talks of unification into a republic or restoring the United Kingdom with an altered constitution.

  • This should include the Welsh as well. Hailstormer (talk) 16:27, January 14, 2014 (UTC)
  • Fixed that for you.
  • Thank you. Hailstormer (talk) 19:04, January 14, 2014 (UTC)
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues major construction on the capital of Santa Salvación with middle income and luxury housing both being built as well as the major industrial and commercial sectors. The city is developed in a modernist sense but also due to some concerns the city planners decide against building the city in superblocks and go for smaller blocks. By this point many of the city's major and most minor governmental structures have been completed and the Federation government has successfully moved to the new city. With about 260,000 full time inhabitants the city continues to grow with it being planned to house just under one million people. The city planners, also getting more funding than previously, though, are able to include large public areas such as parks and monuments taking cues from the United States capital. The city continues its exponential growth with the inhabitants of the city predicted to be nearly 400,000 by the end of the year with enough housing and developing jobs and resource jobs to house these people. The Federation also manages to pull demographics from nearly all corners of the country with a certain mixing occuring in the new city and its developing satellite towns. A large deposit of titanium is discovered in the Paraguayan state of Alto Parana and the resource companies begin looking to invest in exploitation and finally passes Paraguay's red tape. Brazil, in the state of Piauí, the decent sized titanium and vanadium deposits are more readily exploited due to Brazil's previous pro-exploit procedures and this material is considered for tanks, and vehicles and even some building construction. This development into a major industry is suspected to take at least a year before meaningful material comes out of the site. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers setting the price and superceeding Saudi Arabia's prominence, the National surplus provided for through large amounts of oil money is placed in diversified account as other major sectors of national production are used to cover certain areas. The national surplus is in store to be used in case of another major recession and depression and legislation is put into place protecting it. In a large show of anti-corruption politics the Federation signs into legislation the political protection act of 1958 and begins a process of putting it as an amendment to the constitution as well. This legislation makes the buying of senators, representatives, and politicians illegal and makes it a punishable offence of life in prison to death by firing squad. While very extreme, the legislation also required lobbyist unions to be developed for every state for its House of Representatives, and Senators in which the people can directly lobby to the government rather than businesses. Business lobbying is still allowed but remains extremely watched. The Federation also receives the improved designs of the EE-40 heavy tank from France and taking these designs the Federation begins to manufacture combat frames for the army and the marines to use. The Federation military passes on orders for new APC's IFV's and other logistical and combat vehicles. The new cargo transport aircraft is also produced for mass purposes. The Federation airline industry takes off with some of the first major international flights on major carriers being offered to the United States - among other areas. The Federation also continues its space program incorporating new designs in rockets and the like even using titanium in some designs for its lightness, with the Guyana space center up and running the Federation launches a second and third rocket into orbit with success and begins looking into a satellite. The satellite begins to be constructed which is a bit larger than Sputnik using various solar cells and other high tech equipment. It is named the Explorer 1 and is to be sent off in the next year. Using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, and with a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway. The population of the Federation reaches 133.4 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet and now including Guyana into population figures. The Lusophone population growth lags behind the Hispanic population growth but still outnumbers them heavily. The Federation fields nearly 20 more attack subs and in secret has three of them retrofitted for special forces use. This puts the submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations . The Federation establishes a decent amount of influence in both Cuba and Bolivia - enough so that the Bolivian president has been rated pro-Federation and more pro-Federation legislation and talk is going around the country.  The Cuban influence expands heavily with Fidel Castro and another politician both being heavily pro-Federation. The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation deploys the Espadas in secret to Colombia right along the Colombian-Venezuelan border and they begin to act like a group of soldiers that were not given their due. Their expert operations record allows for the men to cause utter havoc in rural regions of the country. All identifying marks to the Federation are scrubbed as well, and almost all the men are exclusively Hispanic. The Federation also begins development of a new group of weapon systems with guns of all classes under development as well as for export to allies and special case countries. (They are particularly close to the US OTL M-16, Car-15 SMG, MP5, LAW, and various HMG's and LMG's). The Federation also begins the second round of modernization of its fleet bringing more ships into service - particularly the new Asuncion class destroyers, and Salvação class guided missile cruisers. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is put under works. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing. The Federation also makes a major breakthrough in thermonuclear weaponry and begins to look at a major detonation of the weapon. The Federations infrastructure due to the constructions of the capital and the integration of Guyana undergoes another major overhaul and begins to consider building the Pan-American Highway.
    • Guyanan Confederation: The Guyanas - particularly former British and French Guyana - show a decent amount of immigration from eErope, Suriname is fully included into the Confederation which with various exiled government officials from the Netherlands, Britain and France form a coalition governmental party and reform the country into a Federation as well as a new additions to the Federation. Due to some technicalities the Guyanan Federation will be included over a period of the next year. Alongside this, some economic co-operation and integration into the Federation begins with the Federal dollar beginning to pass up local currencies. The gold industry in Guyana begins to enlarge. The Guyanan Federation/Confederation begins major integration into the Federation and also due to the integration of the countries into the Federation openly recognizes Venezuelan claims to the Former british guyana portions but manages to negotiate a specially administered state zone between Venezuela and British guyana. 
    • Peru: Peru maintains its pro-Federation stance and its pro-Unification movement with the Federation continues to grow moderately. The Peruvian military now under advisement from the Federation military as well as jointly occupying bases in Peru begins a large buy of Federation equipment purchasing aircraft, some naval ships and all sorts of equipment. The country's infrastructure is worked on extensively as well.
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation supports the creation of the Federation. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antilles begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural re-organization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the Antilles Islands once held by Germany. Infrastructure is worked on.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica seeks better relations with Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti and begins to allow for major foreign investment from the Federation. Infrastructure is worked on.
  • Norway: We launch our first rocket into space. It is the most televised event in our country. The oil competition is heating up between Saudi, Federation and Canada. We continue to upgrade our military. The king talks about one day putting a man on the moon. We are halfway complete from making our atomic bomb.
    • I was never taken over by Scandinavia! I am not a vassal, Feud! - Shadow
    • You were, actually, several turns ago.
    • I am not a vassal, so please stop!!!!!!!! WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Shadow
    • Actually, you are. Check the mod events over the last few turns, and check that Celtic Invasion algo on the talk page again. Also, please do not cross out my posts. I get offended. -MP
  • United States: The United States continues to improve its infrastructure and maintain its economy. Meanwhile, technological improvement of the United States military continues. The United States prepares to launch its second satellite into orbit. The space program continues with hopes of having a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s. Nuclear arsenal is expanded while nuclear power becomes increasingly popular. The same thing occurs in Mexico and Cambodia. Research into all fields continues.
  • Saudi Arabia: We demand that Egypt back down, and that Italy will liberate their colonies on their own. An invasion force is prepared and will be used if Egypt continues to act aggressively, and we pledge to support Italy in order to maintain peace in the Middle East. Military and industry are improved, and infrastructure is also worked on. Rebuilding of Yemen continues and we continue to influence Oman and Iraq. Work on our first A-bomb is continued, and the Mecca-1's first voyage is given the date of early 1959.
  • Egypt: Demands that Saudi Arabia backs down. Saudi foreigners are taken hostage and face execution. If the Saudis don't back down the hostages will be killed. Military is redeployed to the Saudi border. Influence in Iraq and Oman begins.
  • Saudi Arabia: The Saudi government bans the travel of all Egyptians into the Saudi bloc. As a result, Egyptian Muslims will not be able to complete the five pillars of Islam. If you do not back down, we will invade. If you do not release the hostages, we will invade. Egyptians currently in the country are allowed to leave freely. Saudi Arabia will not back down.
    • Oceanic Dip: We request you back down from these barabaric acts or Oceania will respond with force to help defend the Saudis as well as our interests in the area.
    • Federation Dip/Secret turn: The Federation demands the Egyptians back off from their increasingly hostile rhetoric or face the consequences. (Secret) In the meantime, in secret the Federations Espadas (special forces) are deployed via submarine in a clandestine operation to secure the Saudi hostages. A carrier near the North Atlantic on patrol is moved into the Mediterranean.
    • Swiss Dip: We condemn Egypt and request to host negotiations.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: The Volcoff Group continues to make record profits. Orion Industries is founded and immediately begins to buy up large amounts of rare earth minerals. Orion works on building better computers. In partnership with several Swiss companies, Orion hopes to miniaturize computing. These new technologies are coming along well, with several promising prototypes. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent.  The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue. Oceania AeroCorp works with Switzerland to design a new line of helicopters. With the navy almost up to size, spending is decreased to allow for more money to be injected into the space programme. A large stipend is sent to Oceania AeroCorp to aid in rocket research, which is coming along rather well. Oceania finally exterts enough infleunce on the Philippine Islands for them to willingly join the Commonwealth. Relations with the Federation continue to improve. The Department of the Army forms the Nuclear Engineer's task force, to control and monitor the construction of nuclear weapons in Australia. New APC models are designed including the MI-Valiant. (M113 variant) Oceania AeroCorp, with partnership from the Swiss, invent a new type of helicopter, capable of slightly larger ranges and a larger cargo hold. It is named the A2 Bobcat, and begins going into production. Oceania still petitions the UN. The Oceanic Space Adminstration decides to send scientists to France to help establish their agency. The Agency extends an offer of co-operation to the Federation. The Red Cross still sends aid to the English Isles, though it has slowed as the Irish Republican Army continues to attack shipments and steals them for their own use. France is contacted with this issue. The Oceanic Space Agency continues to build and plans to send a satellite into space within the next three to four years. Relations improve with Nigeria. Oceania experiences a huge technology boom spurred on by Orion Industries in the computer field and the surplus of oil, driving prices down in the Commonwealth. Oceania demands Egypt back down from Saudi Arabia.
  • Switzerland: The Swiss continue to co-operate with the Oceanic Computer Program. The government begins to work on an APC, similar to the Oceania MI Valiant, but with a larger troop capacity, named the MTV-01. We plan to purchase 100 in 1959. The army begins a series of defensive war games, mobilizing troops, setting up defenses, and launching mock attacks on obsolete armor. Another Italian incursion is caught, and the Swiss government again demands an end to these. The Swiss government condemns the Egyptian hostility and demand they back down.
  • Italy: We leave the Axis. We build up our military. We start a space program and a nuclear program. Baskeball and soccer are our top sports. Benito Mussolini make his country into a democratic socialist nation.
    • Libya: We expand more influence into Libya to make it stronger. 
    • Tunisia: We expand more influence into Tunisia to make it stronger.
    • Italian Dip: We ask for an alliance with the Swiss and French.
    • French Diplomacy: We are happy that the state of Italy has embraced democratic principles, and happily accept the alliance.
    • Swiss Dip: As we are neutral, we can not ally, but we offer a mutual defense pact, and technology exchange.
  • Nigeria: Continues to influence Ghana. The military is expanded, and with our influence over Ghana, we sign a pact allowing for trade of gold and oil between our nations. Meanwhile, several new factories are built, increasing our industrial output, mainly by two companies - Africana Corp, which is the main oil producer, and Sunshine Industries, which produces mostly textiles. The navy builds its first major ships: the pocket battleships NNC (Nigerian Naval Command) Lagos and Guinea, as well as using British designs to produce - in very limited quantities - a modified version of the Cyclone Mk. IV, known as the Niger Mk. I. With extensive industrial buildup, we now have significant industrial output. The army, too, produces a new tank. several new newspapers spring up throughout the nation, as the jobless rate goes down to 5.5%, though many of those are employed on small farms. However, there is a large move to the cities. We condemn the Egyptian actions.
    • ​​Bharat (I think) offers the Nigerians multiple economic pacts as well as support and trade deals. On the low, we also (to certain members of the government) offer support to the nation against Islamic groups and areas where there is a threat of Islamic terrorism.   
    • HEY GUYS. My bad, I meant that I was influencing Ghana. I've been doing it for three turns. 'Nother two and I should be vassalizing. BTW, shouldn't France's African territories be free? Because on the map, it ain't so.
  • He has managed to prolong the French Colonial empire by creating his own commonwealth for the most part. Not to mention he wasn't a dick to Algeria so all and all France has made a serious recovery but he is more than likely to lose a few African nations to self-determination here.
  • Why did you screw with my code???
  • It was screwed the first time you posted. I just decided not to fix it because I'd make it worse. LOL.
  • I have fixed it for you now. -- Hailstormer (talk) 01:38, January 15, 2014 (UTC)
  • The USSR continues to rebuild and reform. The Grand Plan passes in the following SSRs: Ukrainian, Kazakh, Karel, Georgian, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Uzbek, Finnish, Polish, Estonian, Latvian, and Lithuanian. Ratification from other SSRs is awaited. Meanwhile, the Supreme Soviet continues to tear itself apart over the bill. Zhukov manages to rally many of the representatives of minor ethnicities as well as some major ones. Infrastructure and the economy are built up.
    • You might want to split up Ukraine into two SSRs (the east is largely pro-Russian) to make life easier. ~Imp
  • Flag of Scandnavia (AVA) Scandinavia: Help is asked from the Federation for updating our capital of Kalmer. The triple regency and six kingdoms rises in popularity. Oil is nationalized with certain nations being granted small rights to drill somewhere. Apply for drilling rights on the bottom. Steel production grows. People are encouraged to have no less than five kids and that mixed Swedo-Norwegians\Swedo-Danes\Dane-Norwegians.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues.  A fifth, sixth and seventh carrier are made and the creation of a small nuclear program in Athens, While this, the army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.

Improvements on the tanks and jets continues, but new plans continue to be drafted as well. More aid is sent to the Portuguese and Iranian Royalists. The German navy continues to increase in size and capability. Troops are put on further alert due to Italy leaving the Axis.
    • Yugoslavia: Production of war goods and increased industry continues. The modernization of the navy continues, and the battleship and aircraft carrier continue to be constructed.
    • Czechoslovakia: The government increases modernization efforts regarding the military. The political debate over Ruthenia continues.
  • French Union: The French military continues to be expanded and augmented. With the focus being on recruitment within the French Union's African members, and updating the current forces there with the same equipment as mainland French forces. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups join the four patrolling the North Sea, leading to the French Navy to be the dominant power in the sea. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. With approval ratings for the French government being at an all time high. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. The French nuclear arsenal is rapidly expanded, passing the three hundred mark, with yields of various sizes, for use in various situations. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. More test rockets are fired, and provide valuable technical data and practical experience, with one even successfully reaching the outer limits of the atmosphere. The goal of placing an artificial satellite in space draws closer, and is expected to be reached in six months time. Project 'Blue Spear' continues to be developed, with a dummy warhead being successfully mounted and carried by one of the FSA's rockets. Mali votes to join the French Union, increase the member states to six. The last election in Togo is planned for next year.
    • England: French troops move farther into England from Scotland and take over more control from Germany. The reception is jubilant, as the French troops are seen as liberators. French troops hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils and hygienic materials. The English government continues discussions between the Scottish, Welsh and English governments over a potential revival of the United Kingdom sans Ireland. A larger majority of the free population accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and more begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties continue to deepen with Scotland, Belgium, Wales, Isle of Man, Greenland, Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. Ties continue to deepen with Scotland, Belgium, Wales, Isle of Man, England, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.

No events from me today. Go ahead and post.

Some from me, then ...

Nigeria accepts the Bharati deal, leading to oil transports there, further beefing up Nigerian industrialism.

The Level-Five Industrial powers may get space travel in one year.

The Celts and English continue discussions of a united British state, albeit under some French control.

In China, alas, due to the warring and industrialism, the Baiji River dolphin is driven extinct.

Rock music experiences a revival, led by the band Seven Days Rest, which founds punk music, 20 years early. None of your rap/pop shit in THIS game!

You just wait ... ~Imp

Come at me. ~TMG

Stop ruining music, Guns. ~S

Scraw. Rock FTW. ~TMG

You already ruined rock. ~S

What's that supposed to mean? ~TMG

    • ​Philippine Islands: The transition of government begins, but is not expected to be complete fully until 1960. The Islands form a representative body in the Oceanic General Assembly. The Oceanic Space Adminstration decides on new research facility just outside Manila. Manila begins the process of modernizing as new underground plans are drafted and the city brought up to Oceanic status. The Army and Navy opens several new bases and begins to aid the locals. The Oceanic Red Cross is deployed to ease hunger and bring cleaner water to large parts of the largely ignored and backwater islands.
  • Saudi Arabia: After ten years of influence, Oman is vassalized. Influence on Iraq continues and we begin to influence Qatar. The ASF merged military is expanded to include Oman. Industry is expanded and infrastructure is improved as well. At the urging of the golbal community, Saudi Arabia and Palestine are willing to enter peace talks with Egypt if and only if Egypt removes its forces from the Palestine border, the hostages are released and attempts at influencing Oman and Iraq halt. War plan three is written and presented to Oceania, France and the Federation who are asked to co-lead with Saudi Arabia in the event of war. Reforms continue across the Saudi bloc, mainly in Saudi Arabia, Yemen,Oman,and Kuwait. Reforms in Jordan and Palestine are halted for the most part due to the threat of invasion. Work on the first A-bomb is continued. While the Mecca-1 nears completion, work and research into aircraft carriers begins. We continue to produce planes and patrol boats based on Swiss designs. we also begin to research anti-air weapons as well as other defensive technology. Work on computers continues, and we ask for Oceania and Swizterland to aid in our computer research. 
  • Italy: We are happy to be allies with France. We build up our military. Our factories start to produce the Panzer 58 in mass production and is sent to our colonies. We build up our country to become more modern. The Red Cross builds medical ships for the military. We start to build our first atomic bomb in our secret base. The space program starts to build the first rocket to put into space. This rocket will have a crew of three people to fly the rocket into space.
  • You're still years from that unless you get some major help in both fields.
    • ​Libya: We build a railway throughout the country. Panzer 58's are sent from Italy. Our port cities are upgraded.

    • Swiss D: We send our top rocket experts to aid in your aerospace program.
  • Flag of Scandnavia (AVA) Scandinavia: Help is asked from the Federation for updating our capital of Kalmer. The triple regency and six kingdoms rises in popularity. Oil is nationalized with certain nations being granted small rights to drill somewhere. Apply for drilling rights on the bottom. Steel production grows. People are encouraged to have no less than five kids and that mixed Swedo-Norwegians\Swedo-Danes\Dane-Norwegians are the best. Part of the north is reserved for army training. The navy is being made to be ice-proof involving heated metal and ice cutters. We ask to buy more battleships. An oil pipeline beginning in Norway stopping in Southern Sweden or Denmark for refining and to the German border is made.
  • Nigeria: Continues to influence Ghana. The military is expanded, and with our influence over Ghana, we sign a pact allowing for trade of gold and oil between our nations. Meanwhile, several new factories are built, increasing our industrial output, mainly by two companies - Africana Corp, which is the main oil producer, and Sunshine Industries, which produces mostly textiles. The navy builds its first major ships: the pocket battleships NNC (Nigerian Naval Command) Lagos and Guinea, as well as using British designs to produce - in very limited quantities - a modified version of the Cyclone Mk. IV, known as the Niger Mk. I. With extensive industrial buildup, we now have significant industrial output. The army, too, produces a new tank. several new newspapers spring up throughout the nation, as the jobless rate goes down to 5.5%, though many of those are employed on small farms. However, there is a large move to the cities. We condemn the Egyptian actions.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues major construction on the capital of Santa Salvación with middle income and luxury housing both being built as well as the major industrial and commercial sectors. The city is developed in a modernist sense but also due to some concerns the city planners decide against building the city in superblocks and go for smaller blocks. By this point many of the city's major and most minor governmental structures have been completed and the Federation government has successfully moved to the new city. With about 260,000 full time inhabitants the city continues to grow with it being planned to house just under one million people. The city planners, also getting more funding than previously, though, are able to include large public areas such as parks and monuments taking cues from the United States capital. The city continues its exponential growth with the inhabitants of the city predicted to be nearly 500,000 by the end of the year with enough housing and developing jobs and resource jobs to house these people. The Federation also manages to pull demographics from nearly all corners of the country with a certain mixing occuring in the new city and its developing satellite towns. A large deposit of titanium is discovered in the Paraguayan state of Alto Parana and the resource companies begin looking to invest in exploitation and finally passes Paraguay's red tape. Brazil, in the state of Piauí, the decent sized titanium and vanadium deposits are more readily exploited due to Brazil's previous pro-exploit procedures and this material is considered for tanks, and vehicles and even some building construction. This development into a major industry is suspected to take at least a year before meaningful material comes out of the site. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers setting the price and superceeding Saudi Arabia's prominence, the National surplus provided for through large amounts of oil money is placed in diversified account as other major sectors of national production are used to cover certain areas. The national surplus is in store to be used in case of another major recession and depression and legislation is put into place protecting it. In a large show of anti-corruption politics the Federation signs into legislation the political protection act of 1958 and begins a process of putting it as an amendment to the constitution as well. This legislation makes the buying of senators, representatives and politicians illegal and makes it a punishable offence of life in prison to death by firing squad. While very extreme the legislation also required lobbyist unions to be developed for every state for its House of Representatives, and Senators in which the people can directly lobby to the government rather than businesses. Business lobbying is still allowed but remains extremely watched. The Federation also receives the improved designs of the EE-40 heavy tank from France and taking these designs the Federation begins to manufacture combat frames for the army and the marines to use. The Federation military passes on orders for new APC's IFV's and other logistical and combat vehicles. The new cargo transport aircraft is also produced for mass purposes. The Federation airline industry takes off with some of the first major international flights on major carriers being offered to the United States - among other areas. The Federation also continues its space program incorporating new designs in rockets and the like even using titanium in some designs for its lightness, with the Guyana space center up and running the Federation launches a second and third rocket into orbit with success and begins looking into a satellite. The satellite begins to be constructed which is a bit larger than Sputnik using various solar cells and other high tech equipment. It is named the Explorer 1 and is to be sent off in the next year. Using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, and with a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway. The population of the Federation reaches 133.4 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet and now including Guyana into population figures. The Lusophone population growth lags behind the Hispanic population growth but still outnumbers them heavily. The Federation fields nearly 20 more attack subs and in secret has three of them retrofitted for special forces use. This puts the submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations . The Federation officially fully vassalizes Bolivia after nearly a decade of influence. The Federation continues to support Castro for the elections coming up.  The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation deploys the Espadas in secret to Colombia right along the Colombian-Venezuelan border and they begin to act like a group of soldiers that were not given their due. Their expert operations record allows for the men to cause utter havoc in rural regions of the country. All identifying marks to the Federation are scrubbed as well, and almost all the men are exclusively Hispanic. The Federation uses Che Guevara as an under cover agent in Colombia beginning to allow him to stage a nationalist and more pro-federation revolution with backing from the Federations black ops.  The Federation also finishes development of a new group of weapon systems with guns of all classes under development as well as for export to allies and special case countries. (They are particularly close to the US OTL M-16, Car-15 SMG, MP5, LAW, and various HMG's and LMG's) and outfits its armed forces with the new weapons turning the previous main service rifle into a LMG. The Federation also begins the second round of modernization of its fleet bringing more ships into service - particularly the new Asuncion class destroyers, and Salvação class guided missile cruisers. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is put under works. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing. The Federation detonates its first thermonuclear device becoming the second nation to develop and detonate the weapon. The Guyanas are fully integrated into the Federation.
    • Peru: Peru maintains its pro-Federation stance and its pro-Unification movement with the Federation continues to grow moderately. The Peruvian military now under advisement from the Federation military as well as jointly occupying bases in Peru begins a large buy of Federation equipment purchasing aircraft, some naval ships and all sorts of equipment. The country's infrastructure is worked on extensively as well.
    • Bolivia: Now fully pro-Federation the Bolivian government continues previous projects and begins standardizing its military equipment and economy with the Federation. The Infrastructure of the country is also improved.
    • Antilles Confederation: With Trinidad as the capital area the Confederation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses SADC assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation supports the creation of the Federation. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antilles begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural re-organization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the antilles islands once held by Germany. Infrastructure is worked on.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica seeks better relations with Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti and begins to allow for major foreign investment from the Federation. Infrastructure is worked on.
  • Tibet: Fearing the strength of India, Tibet asks for an alliance with the USSR (preferably one that will allow us to keep our religion) in turn Tibet will provide assistance to the Communists in Iran. The miltary consisting of 20,000 irregulars is lined up at the Indian border. Construction is also started on a university (name TBA) to educate our country in both matters of religion and the sciences.
  • Switzerland: We purchase our first batch of APC's, and they perform marvelously in testing. The Swiss government sends our top experts on rocketry to Italy. We continue to update our fortifications, purchasing 200 Oerlikon ADW-58 anti-armor rifle (OTL: Carl Gustov anti-tank weapon). We continue to collaborate with Oceania in computers and military equipment. We begin to upgrade our infrastructure, continuing work on our hydroelectric dams.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues.  A fifth, sixth and seventh carrier are made and the creation of a small nuclear program in Athens, While this, the army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts at influencing South Kurdistan.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Spain: After years of preparation, we annex Spanish Morocco as part of Spain. Franco plans to eventually tone down the Fascism in the nation. We ask to ally with Switzerland and perhaps form our own bloc. Military reforms continue, and as an exercise of our naval force, we parade part of our navy down the Strait of Gibraltar. While Franco personally states that we are not interested in joining their alliance, however, we will seek closer relations with them and all of Europe. We relax our immigration policies, and allow many people to enter Spain from many other nations with an emphasis on scientists and engineers. We plan to improve our tourism industry in Morocco and in mainland Spain, with many hotels and resorts being planned along the south coast.
  • Germany: Economic expansion continues. Military withdrawal from Britain continues and most of the troops are re-deployed to Scandinavia, Prussia and southern Germany. Improvements on the tanks and jets continues, but new plans continue to be drafted as well. More aid is sent to the Portuguese and Iranian Royalists. The German navy continues to increase in size and capability. Troops are put further on alert due to Italy leaving the Axis.
    • Yugoslavia: Production of war goods and increased industry continues. The modernization of the navy continues, and the battleship and aircraft carrier continue being constructed.
    • Czechoslovakia: The government increases modernization efforts regarding the military. The political debate over Ruthenia continues.
  • French Union: The French military continues to be expanded and augmented. With the focus being on recruitment within the French Union's African members, and updating the current forces there with the same equipment as mainland French forces. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups join the two patrolling the North Atlantic, leading to the French Navy gaining a greater presence in the area. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. The idea of a common currency as a first step to this is suggested, and it is hoped this can be reached in two years time. The French nuclear arsenal is rapidly expanded, passing the four hundred mark, with yields of various sizes, for use in various situations. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. The artificial satellite 'Auriol' reaches space on an FSA rocket, and successfully establishes itself in geosynchronous orbit around the planet. A plan to send an organism into space is planned for six months time, and it is hoped that we shall be the first state to do so. Project 'Blue Spear' continues to be developed, with an actual warhead being successfully constructed, and mounted on an FSA rocket. In a test firing, with the warhead disarmed, the rocket reaches a designated location in the Sub-Saharan desert of Algeria after being fired from a location in the south of France. This is hailed as a grand success by the French government, and 'Blue Spear' rockets begin to be mass produced, with production of gravity based nuclear weaponry being ceased now that their numbers are over four hundred.
    • England: French troops move farther into England from Scotland and take over more control from Germany. The reception is jubilant, as the French troops are seen as liberators. French troops hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils and hygienic materials. The English government continues discussions between the Scottish, Welsh and English governments over a potential revival of the United Kingdom sans Ireland, with a pro-monarchist view being held by all three groups. A larger majority of the free population accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and more begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties continue to deepen with Scotland, Belgium, Wales, Isle of Man, Greenland, Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. The idea of a common currency is met with acceptance.
    • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly.

1959.0

The Japanese government continues to maintain strict control over South East Asia and looks down upon Oceania for getting the Philippines out from underneath them. However, Japan's economic growth makes this inconsequential.

Free China continues to fight for its freedom managing to establish some amounts of industry.

The British Isles nations continue to discuss re-unification. It's now moving on to constitutional problems and whether to restore the monarchy. (Restoration is up to the French player)

Could be a good chance for a Bourbon Restoration. ~Imp

Nah.

The majority of former colonies throughout Africa continue to devolve into highly destructive and outright genocidal civil wars in some cases. Algerians begin to propagate nationalism of the Union rather than of Algeria with various local holidays being based around Algeria's equality within the Union. 

German forces continue to redeploy in the shocking response of the Italian withdrawal from the Axis tipping the balance in Europe somewhat unexpectedly.

Colombia sees the rise of Che Guevara who leads a rightish revolutionary movement, he is rumoured to have spent time with the Venezuelan rebels, and eventually living in the Federation for its formative years. 

To be honest, Che would more likely lead a revolt in Argentina, Boliva or Chile rather than an outside nation that has nothing to do with him or his ideas. I mean Colombia around this time was fairly stable and there's no national front to cause guerrillas. Sine dei gloriem "Ex Initio Terrae" (talk)
I recruited him last turn. His ideas are not the same as OTL. I'm using his status as a revolutionary figure to have him a revolutionary in a different type of thing, not to mention that the "National Front" you're looking for is a large amount of highly trained special forces soldiers who are doing damage in Eastern Colombia -Feud

Note: Iran is a stable People's Republic.

Not true, Iran is still in significant conflict, as the Axis has been aiding the royalists for years.

Regicide was committed against the Pahlavi family quite a while ago. The People's Republic is solid. Besides, even if you were supporting the royalists, you'd be the only one. The only other Axis nation I can think of is the USSR, which obviously supports the People's Republic.

Why can't anyone add Greece's gains to the map? I own Turkey and Cyprus! Greece hasn't been upgraded in ten turns. Just add it. Sine dei gloriem "Ex Initio Terrae" (talk)

  • Germany: Economic expansion continues. Military withdrawal from Britain continues and most of the troops are re-deployed to Scandinavia, Prussia, and southern Germany. Improvements on the tanks and jets continues, but new plans continue to be drafted as well. More aid is sent to the Portuguese and Iranian Royalists.

  • Tibet: The Lamaship of TIbet continues the construction of the national university in Lhasa which is now called the Dalai Lama Theocratic and Scientific University. We also improve our infrastructure to facilitate the building of a large oil field in the Amdo region. We also start work on a copy of the AK-47 Kalashinkov Automatic Rifle. The country again asks the great USSR for an alliance, military access and a trade agreement. We move more forces to the Iranian border as the fighting gets more intense. SECRET: The government of Tibet sends spies to infiltrate the ministry of Free China.

    • You don't border Iran. The USSR accepts and invites Tibet to embrace Communism.
    • Sorry, didn't see that.
  • Italy: We thank the Swiss for sending their top scientists to help us in our space program. We build up the military. Our economy expands due to the recent upgrade of our ports. The king tries to annex Libya and Tunisia in our country so that we do not have to lose our colonies due to the treaty. We improve our infrastructures to make them better.

Work on our first A-bomb continues and we seek to open diplomatic relations with Tibet. Influence on Iraq and Qatar continues. (South Yemen and Oman should be green on the new map.)
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues.  A fifth, sixth and seventh carrier are made and the creation of a small nuclear program in Athens, While this, the army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.

  • The USSR continues to rebuild, building new infrastructure and expanding the economy. More nukes are built, and a few H-bombs as well. The Grand Plan passes in all SSRs and barely makes it through the Supreme Soviet. The name of the nation shall become the Union of Socialist Eurasian Republics. The nation shall lean away from Stalinism and outright Communism and toward proper socialism. Officials will largely be elected and a new legislative body, the Duma shall work in tandem with the Supreme Soviet. Both will contain elected officials from SSRs. The first free elections are to be held in four months, and the elected people shall take office starting in 1960. Zhukov announces that he will run for the new, elected position of Prime Director. His opposition is very few; only two men decide that they will run against him. Sergei Korolyev, meanwhile, continues to lead the space and rocket programs to great success, with two more Sputnik satellites launched. He also announces that the space agency shall put a man in space by 1961. This is hailed across the nation. In other news, the USSR seeks to make a socialism pact with Tibet and Iran and leaders from both nations are invited to Helsinki to sign such a pact.
    • Tibetan Diplomacy: Signed.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: The Volcoff Group continues to make record profits. Orion Industries is founded and immediately begins to buy up large amounts of rare earth minerals. Orion works on building better computers. In partnership with several Swiss companies, Orion hopes to miniaturize computing. These new technologies are coming along well, with several promising prototypes. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent.  The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue. Oceania AeroCorp works with Switzerland to design a new line of helicopters. With the navy almost up to size, spending is decreased to allow for more money to be injected into the space programme. A large stipend is sent to Oceania AeroCorp to aid in rocket research, which is coming along rather well. Relations with the Federation continue to improve. The Department of the Army forms the Nuclear Engineer's task force, to control and monitor the construction of nuclear weapons in Australia. New APC models are designed including the MI-Valiant. (M113 variant) Oceania AeroCorp, with partnership from the Swiss, invent a new type of helicopter, capable of slightly larger ranges and a larger cargo hold. It is named the A2 Bobcat, and begins going into production. Oceania still petitions the UN. The Oceanic Space Adminstration decides to send scientists to France to help establish their agency. The Agency extends an offer of co-operation to the Federation. The Red Cross still sends aid to the English Isles, though it has slowed as the Irish Republican Army continues to attack shipments and steals them for their own use. France is contacted with this issue. The Oceanic Space Agency continues to build and plans to send a satellite into space within the next three to four years. Relations improve with Nigeria. Oceania experiences a huge technology boom spurred on by Orion Industries in the computer field and the surplus of oil, driving prices down in the Commonwealth. The Second Oceanic Fleet arrives off the Egyptian coast. With a declaration of war, Oceanic troops land in Egypt with Saudi forces and begin to push the Egyptians out of Alexandria.
    • ​Philippine Islands: The transition of government begins, but is not expected to be complete fully until 1960. The Islands form a representative body in the Oceanic General Assembly. The Oceanic Space Adminstration decides on new research facility just outside Manila. Manila begins the process of modernizing as new underground plans are drafted and the city brought up to Oceanic status. The Army and Navy opens several new bases and begins to aid the locals. The Oceanic Red Cross is deployed to ease hunger and bring cleaner water to large parts of the largely ignored and backwater islands. Oceania proposes to Japan a joint East Asian Co-operation Pact, to help protect mutual interests throughout Asia as well as to bolster relations and co-operation between the two nations.
  • Switzerland: We declare neutrallity in the Saudi-Egypt war. The government offers to host negotiations to end the war. We continue to update our defenses, considering installing 175 mm cannons in the Alps and at our borders. The economy continues to improve with more banking and tourism money pouring into the nation.
  • French Union: The French military continues to be expanded and augmented. With the focus being on recruitment within the French Union's African members, and updating the current forces there with the same equipment as mainland French forces. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups join the four patrolling the North Atlantic, leading to the French Navy being a dominant power in the area. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. It is estimated that by 1965 the African areas of the French Union will be equal to the French mainland in terms of economic prominence. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. A referendum on a common currency among all French administered lands is planned for six months time, with the name 'Euro' being suggested. and it is hoped this will pass among all French lands. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. More artificial satellites are launched into space and establish themselves in geosynchronous orbit around the planet. A plan to send an organism into space is now ready for launch, and will be launched in six months time, and it is hoped that we shall be the first state to do so. Project 'Blue Spear' rockets begin to be mass produced, with production of gravity based nuclear weaponry being ceased now that their numbers are over four hundred, and over 'Blu6e Spear' rockets are manufactured.
  • England: French troops move farther into England from Scotland and take over more control from Germany. The reception is jubilant, as the French troops are seen as liberators. French troops hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils and hygienic materials. The English government continues discussions between the Scottish, Welsh and English governments over a potential revival of the United Kingdom sans Ireland, with a pro-monarchist view being held by all three groups. A larger majority of the free population accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and more begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties continue to deepen with Scotland, Belgium, Wales, Isle of Man, Greenland, Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. The referendum on a common currency is planned for six months time.
  • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. Ties continue to deepen with Scotland, Belgium, Wales, Isle of Man, England, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. The referendum on a common currency is planned for six months time.

  • Isle of Man: The Manx government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. The idea of a common currency is met with acceptance.
  • Belgium: The Belgian government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. French arms, as well as industrial equipment, continue to be shipped to Belgium from France in an attempt to improve the Belgian military, as well as the economy. Ties continues to deepen with Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Isle of Man, England, and Greenland as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. More Germanic unrest appears In the Flanders region of Belgium. The referendum on a common currency is planned for six months time.
  • Greenland: The Greenlander government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' views. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Wales, Isle of Man, England, and Scotland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. The referendum on a common currency is planned for six months time.

1959.5

Wide decolonization continues to occur. However, nations like Italy continue to cling to former colonies claiming them as overseas or core provinces of the country. The Portuguese do the same with Angola and their various remaining African colonies.

I guess this includes Goa, too. ~Imp
Which you would probably do exactly like OTL india did and show Portugal who.s boss when it comes to home territory. LOL. Also, imp, post. LOL -Feud
The Axis aren't set to have decolonization until the next year, so there should be no major problems.
Yeah, I think I should. LOL. :) ~Imp

The development of space technology continues with most major nations having put satellites into orbit, and working on putting a live animal/being in orbit.

The Japanese reformists begin to consider the creation of a greater more equalized empire or republic vs the aggressive Japan currently. However, the majority of the government in power refutes this rather having a diverse amount of nations for better economic and military opportunity.

Also, I point out that Japan's government is much more moderate in this game, as Nk made them that way.

Major wars stemming from ethnicities and the decolonization in Africa continue with the Hutus and Tutsis particularly making headlines with a civil war of epic proportions occuring in Rwanda.

Not really, Belgium set up stable governments as it left, making sure that they would not degenerate into violence.
And, although I did not mention this last turn, the Iranian thing is still going on. There are more royal families than just the Pahlavis, you know, and I find it unlikely that they could kill them all. Either way, I am not the only nation supporting them, so it is still a go.
Who is supporting them besides the empire? The USSR is supporting the commies. 
Not sure what you mean, but I assume you mean Germany. And have you forgotten Germany's many vassals? They were all aiding the Royalists while you were derping around in Civil War.
I mean Germany. Even with Germany's vassals it justs sums up to the entire USSR. Besides, I made the People's Republic before the civil war and no one protested it then. 
Why does it even matter ... other than a lot of dead Africans, it's really not that big a deal. Rwanda and Angola are really the only major ones. It's not out of the realm of possibility that a few African nations still go to hell.
As I said in previous mod posts, France's colonies are the ones that mostly went to shit. Belgium's did not. As such, West Africa and Equatorial Africa are the shitholes, and the Congo, Rwanda and Burundi are not.
  • Tibet: Tibet openly announces their hostility toward the nation of Free China. Furthermore, the government of Tibet seeks the help of its ally the almighty USSR against Free China if/when war is declared. In return, the government of TIbet will give a 99 year lease on the Himalayas and their vast mineral resources. The University in Lhasa (now named The University of the Supreme Soviet) is finished and is welcoming many students onto its grounds. The office of Sikyong is now replaced with Prime Director mirroring the Soviet System. The first television program broadcast in Tibet is one of Lenin's speeches. A new piece of legislation is made stating that every television station must broadcast the Russian versions of The Red Flag and The Internationale during intermittent periods. Furthermore, Russian is now taught in every school and university. Tibet is also offering the USSR to extend the Trans-Siberian railway to both the Indian and Free Chinese border for the movement of supplies and troops. This, of course, is at the expense of Tibet. TIbet is offering anyone 100 tons of pure gold in return for a 99 year lease of one of their ports (preferably on the Indian or Pacific Ocean). Infrastructure, military and mines are built.
    • The USSR will not have any relations with Free China. It is in Japan's sphere of influence and Japan is a great ally.
    • The government of TIbet is sorry as the government of Tibet thought Reformed Republic of China was the only China under Japan's sphere of influence. Therefore, (this is based on the 1959 event which says: Free China continues to fight for its freedom managing to establish some amounts of industry). Tibet retracts all statements of hostility against Free China. Again, the government of Tibet is sorry. The government of Tibet is still offering to extend the Trans-Siberian railway (again at the expense of Tibet). 
  • Italy: We move 500,000 troops to the northeast border that hits Germany. We are halfway to completing our first rocket. We train our troops with a top notch military training program. More modernization is going on in our nation. Factories continue to produce military supplies. Our colonies will not be let go of and one day we will annex them into our country. The Beretta AR-70/223 assault rifle is made to copy the AK-47. This gun is similar, but is much lighter since it is made of plastic.
    • Libya: The Beretta AR-70/223 assault rifle is given out to the local military in the country from the Italians.
    • Tunisia: Underground bunkers are made to help civilians just in case a nuclear attack happens. 
    • Are you invading Germany? What are you smoking?
    • Not yet. I am waiting a little bit.
  • Saudi Arabia: The Saudi army pushes forward, breaking into two major army groups. One pushes toward Cairo, while the other pushes toward Alexandria. The occupation of the Sinai begins. Research into military technology, such as APC's, freighters and aircraft carriers continues, while military production continues at double speed. Industry is improved, and infrastructure is as well. Influence on Iraq and Qatar continues. Reforms continue, speeding up in Oman and Jordan, while Yemen and Kuwait continue as normal. The work on our first A-bomb continues. With the success of the Mecca-1, the Saudi military begins building the Mecca-2.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation finishes major construction on the capital of Santa Salvación with middle income and luxury housing both being built as well as the major industrial and commercial sectors. The city is developed in a modernist sense but also due to some concerns the city planners decide against building the city in superblocks and go for smaller blocks. By this point many of the city's major and most minor governmental structures have been completed and the Federation government has successfully moved to the new city. With about 350,000 full time inhabitants the city continues to grow with it being planned to house just under one million people. The city planners, also getting more funding than previously, though, are able to include large public areas such as parks and monuments taking cues from the United States capital. The city continues its exponential growth with the inhabitants of the city predicted to be nearly 500,000 by 1965 with enough housing and developing jobs and resource jobs to house these people.  A large deposit of titanium is discovered in the Paraguayan state of Alto Parana and the resource companies begin looking to invest in exploitation and finally passes Paraguay's red tape. Brazil, in the state of Piauí, the decent sized titanium and vanadium deposits are more readily exploited due to Brazil's previous pro-exploit procedures and this material is considered for tanks, and vehicles and even some building construction. This development into a major industry is suspected to take at least a year before meaningful material comes out of the site. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers setting the price and superceeding Saudi Arabia's prominence, the National surplus provided for through large amounts of oil money is placed in diversified account as other major sectors of national production are used to cover certain areas. The national surplus is in store to be used in case of another major recession and depression and legislation is put into place protecting it. The Federation also continues its space program incorporating new designs in rockets and the like even using titanium in some designs for its lightness, with the Guyana space center up and running the Federation launches a series of nearly six rockets into space putting a dog, a money and a cat into the various pods. Of all the rockets only two containing the monkeys are destroyed due to oversights in that particular rocket design. A new rocket design is finished with the Almagro I and Almagro II rockets being minted and used for testing and space launches. Using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, and with a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway, Computers are now used to make calculations with the Space program and other major projects. The population of the Federation reaches 140.7 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet and now including Guyana into population figures. The Lusophone population growth lags behind the Hispanic population growth but still outnumbers them heavily. The submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations is drilled heavily and a new class able to launch Cruise missiles is completed and five are added to the fleet. The Federation officially fully vassalizes Bolivia after nearly a decade of influence. The Federation continues to support Castro for the elections coming up.  The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation deploys the Espadas in secret to Colombia right along the Colombian-Venezuelan border and they begin to act like a group of soldiers that were not given their due. Their expert operations record allows for the men to cause utter havoc in rural regions of the country. All identifying marks to the Federation are scrubbed as well, and almost all the men are exclusively Hispanic. The Federation uses Che Guevara as an undercover agent in Colombia beginning to allow him to stage a nationalist and more pro-Federation revolution with backing from the Federation's black ops.  The Federation also finishes development of a new group of weapon systems with guns of all classes under development as well as for export to allies and special case countries. (They are particularly close to the US OTL M-16, Car-15 SMG, MP5, LAW, and various HMG's and LMG's) and outfits its armed forces with the new weapons turning the previous main service rifle into a LMG. The Federation begins a larger program of more modern air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles. The Federation also begins the second round of modernization of its fleet bringing more ships into service - particularly the new Asuncion class destroyers, and Salvação class guided missile cruisers. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is finished with some attack subs being retrofitted or remodeled to fit the weapons. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing.  The Guyanas are fully integrated into the Federation. Infrastructure is upgraded. The Federation begins test drills off the coast of Brazil looking for deposits of oil. Infrastructure development is continued with mainline highways being completed and their linking up with areas in Colombia continuing. However, the expansion of infrastructure brings out some hideaway Venezuelan militant groups left over from the previous civil war. The Federation begins to send arms and munitions to the remaining royalists in Iran secretly and even manages to procure a few modern tanks for them. Two carrier groups - previously deployed in international waters near Europe - are resupplied and redirected toward the Persian Gulf along with multiple expeditionary units of nearly 10,000 highly trained troops just in case. The country opens a few new nuclear plants and has made huge strides into making nuclear power applicable for a modern warship - particularly a carrier.
    • Bharati Diplomacy: Tata himself arrives to visit the Federation in a visit he feels is long overdue. He starts by thanking the Federation leaders for all they have done for the nation, but he is looking for greater deals. He wishes to seek Federation help - especially the engineers the nation can offer - to help construct the huge irrigation projects which have begun. He also would like Federation equipment to help exploit resources in his nation as well as begin the extracting of oil in Bharati territories. He will be willing to pay for the equipment. He also wishes Federation help in missile technology as well as nuclear technology - and he hopes joint co-operation in the latter so both nations can benefit. He stresses (in secret) that he has read reports on the element Thorium and its future as an alternative to Uranium. He also promises that once Thorium becomes viable, Bharat will help to export the element to the Federation. Large deposits of the element have been found all around the nation.
    • Federation Dip: We will agree to most/all points. However, we do re-iterate that the Federation still needs a large amount of engineers - among others - to maintain its large heavy industry programs - among other things. As for nuclear we will only be exporting the materials for nuclear power but they should be enough to create your own bomb if you so wish. For thorium we will also agree, as we would like to allow for a much less deadly element to be used in nuclear power. For resource extraction, as long as the Federations business is protected in this situation and the oil exporting is set at a respectable level in regards to other nations' production to prevent a large overflow of oil to the market, hence cutting everyone's profits.
  • Peru: Peru maintains its pro-Federation stance and its pro-Unification movement with the Federation continues to grow moderately. The Peruvian military now under advisement from the Federation military as well as jointly occupying bases in Peru begins a large buy of Federation equipment purchasing aircraft, some naval ships and all sorts of equipment. The country's infrastructure is worked on extensively as well. Peru, via the Federation, establishes a line of credit with the royalists in Iran allowing for the Iranians to buy arms, and fund their war on credit.
  • Bolivia: Now fully pro-Federation, the Bolivian government continues previous projects and begins standardizing its military equipment and economy with the Federation. The Infrastructure of the country is also improved, particularly the infrastructure in natural gas. The move is done very well and the Infrastructure for it is completed with natural gas becoming a major export for Bolivia. The country begins to show major population growth with nearly 4.2 million people.
  • Antilles Federation: With Trinidad as the capital area the federation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses Federaton assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antilles begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural re-organization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective, the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter-island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the Antilles Islands once held by Germany. Infrastructure is worked on. The new found wealth of the Antilles through cash cropping has left a surplus enough to buy a few Modern warships from the Federation
  • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica seeks better relations with Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti and begins to allow for major foreign investment from the Federation. Infrastructure is worked on. The Jamaicans begin an arms buildup establishing a respectable light arms arsenal as well as tank killing weaponry.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: The Volcoff Group continues to make record profits. Orion Industries is founded and immediately begins to buy up large amounts of rare earth minerals. Orion works on building better computers. In partnership with several Swiss companies, Orion hopes to miniaturize computing. These new technologies are coming along well, with several promising prototypes. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent.  The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue. Oceania still petitions the UN for membership in the Security Council. The Oceanic Space Adminstration launches its first satellite called Intrepid into space. Computer science advances rapidly due to the plentiful resources. Smaller and smaller devices are coming out of this. Using the rocket technology, the Army begins plans to use a modified Ares II rocket to create Oceania's first ICBM's. Oceania once again sends diplomats to Japan, hoping to form the East Asian and Oceanic Co-operation Pact. Oceania offers to aid in stablisation of the government as gesture of goodwill.
    • ​Philippine Islands: The transition of government begins, but is not expected to be complete fully until 1960. The Islands form a representative body in the Oceanic General Assembly. The Oceanic Space Adminstration decides on new research facility just outside Manila. Manila begins the process of modernizing as new underground plans are drafted and the city brought up to Oceanic status. The Army and Navy opens several new bases and begins to aid the locals. The Oceanic Red Cross is deployed to ease hunger and bring cleaner water to large parts of the largely ignored and backwater islands. Oceania proposes to Japan a joint East Asian and Oceanic Co-operation Pact, to help protect mutual interests throughout Asia as well as to bolster relations and co-operation between the two nations.
    • Egypt: Wants to sign a peace treaty with the Saudis.
    • Saudi Dip: The treaty of Tel Aviv is given to the Egyptian government with the following points: 1) Egypt will release all hostages. 2) The Sinai peninsula will be annexed by Palestine. 3) Egypt will be vassalized by Saudi Arabia. (You can still post as Egypt, I, however, hold the right to change or delete your post, and if you are continually implausible, I will remove you) 4) 5% of your national GDP will be paid to the Saudi Bloc, Oceania and Greece for a period of 20, 15 and 10 years respectively 5) The city of Alexandria will be directly controlled by the Saudi government. 6) Egypt must accept the blame for starting the war.
    • Egypt D: agrees to all but will not give the Sinai away because its part of Egyptan wealth.
    • Saudi/Palestinian Dip: The governments of Palestine and Saudi Arabia will not accept unless the Sinai is handed over.
    • Egypt D: Sinai is where Egypt get its main source of money and Alexandrla is an Egyptian holy city.
    • Saudi/Palestinian Dip: Unless Egypt is willing to cede the Sinai and Alexandria, peace talks will fail and the war will continue.
    • Oceania reminds Egypt they are not in a position to bargain. Your holy city of Alexandria is in Oceanic control. You will acceed to Saudi demands or face annihilation. Oceania does request to Arabia that in the end of the war if Oceania may retain a naval presence in Alexandria, perhaps on a sort of lease?
    • Saudi Arabia accepts Oceania's request.
  • Switzerland: We continue to modernize our military, purchasing 12 EC-121 Warning Star AWACS aircraft, 20 armored recovery vehicles, ten patrol boats, and ten helicopters for the Lakes Flotilla. We continue to stockpile food, water and fuel. Another secret underground military facility is started. We deploy 2000 more troops to our borders. We finish replacing the Luger with the SIG P210 handgun and begin to replace the Karbiner Model 1941 with the SIG SG 510. The army begins to prepare to buy more machine guns for the militia and possibly new APC's. We continue to improve our banking, and our infrastructure.
    • Swiss D: We put out a bid for 100 APC's.
    • French Diplomacy: We offer a 50 km wide stretch of land down to the Mediterranean on France's eastern-most frontier, as well as eight destroyers and two cruisers, if Switzerland will cede sovereignty of Lichtenstein to the French Union. This is on the condition that France will still have free movement through the land. Do you accept?
    • Swiss Dip: We accept.
  • Germany: Economic expansion continues. Military withdrawal from Britain continues and most of the troops are re-deployed to Scandinavia, Prussia and southern Germany. Improvements on the tanks and jets continues, but new plans continue to be drafted as well. More aid is sent to the Portuguese and Iranian Royalists. The German navy continues to increase in size and capability. Troops are put on further alert due to Italy leaving the Axis. 
    • Yugoslavia: Production of war goods and increased industry continues. The modernization of the navy continues, and the battleship and aircraft carrier continue being constructed.
    • Czechoslovakia: The government increases modernization efforts regarding the military. The political debate over Ruthenia continues.
  • Proposed Flag of Angola (1996)

    The flag used by the transtional government in Namibe, pending flag contests

    Angolan Nationalists: The two major nationalist groups begin to form a truce, and join forces to fight the Portuguese.  A transitional coalition government is now formed; and adopts an interim flag until a flag contest is held.
    • UNITA: Forges a truce with the MPLA. An interim government is created in the town of Namibe.  We temporarily use a red-green-black tricolor, pending a flag contest. We still continue our surprise offensive toward Luanda.
    • MPLA: Accepts the truce given by UNITA. Continues guerrilla ops in the Congo border. Asks for a full peace treaty with the UNITA.
  • Bharat: The information in the census of the nation is finally revealed to the public of Bharat. In 1955, there were around 335 million people in Bharat. The census for Burmese regions still needs to be done, however. Statistics also show that around 78% of those killed in the civil war were Muslim. However, the government has no quelms over the figure - some are even proud of it within the government. The government announces plans for the Great Leap Forward - or Agay Badho. The policy is designed to increase agricultural competition to maximise yields as well as to increase the amount of foreign investment being put into the nation. It is also to help build up infrastructure in regions still lacking basic nessecites. It will look to re-commission reservoirs which have fallen into the state of disrepair due to British rule and will look to rebuild them and increase the numbers of dams and irrigation projects. For this feat, engineers from Bharat will be used and international engineers from Brazil and Germany will be called too. They also plan to exploit any and all natural resources present. This includes plans to scout for natural deposits of valuable minerals, metals and radioactive isotopes. They also plan to exploit the wood resources in a controlled man The International Relations aspect seeks to expand Bharati influence in the regional as well as other parts of the world. It will also look to claim territories which it sees as rightfully theirs. This immediately leads to beginning talks with the Nepali and Sikkimese monarchs in a bid to get their nations to join the nation of Bharat. Propaganda leaflets are dropped over the populations of the two nations, whose people seem to take the information provided positively. The huge slave labour workforce is hard at work all around the nation. However, where there is a need for better workers, normal workers are used. The state quickly implements minimum wage reforms for its (Hindu) workers. This is mainly due to Sen. The Special Reserved Zone (Balochistan) has millions crowding the small towns and cities. Famine will set in if something is not done. In a rare feat of compassion, the government begins to implement the construction of irrigation projects so the population in the region can support itself. Many wonder why the government is helping the Zone but do not complain motives. The factories which were damaged or destroyed have all been rebuilt. In the "Hindu hearland", huge industrial projects commence as in accord with the Agay Badho Plan. The docks are now being rebuilt and expanded as the government wishes to make the docks massive for trade as well as military ships. The government also begins to construction of a new airport in Bombay. It will be built in the lands near the small village of Ulway and will comprise of four runways and two smaller runways for domestic traffic. Many argue there is no need for such a large airport but the government has visions for the nation. Construction will begin in six months as the plans are completed and approved. Rubble now has been completely cleared along with damaged buildings being destroyed. The government approves plans to build skyscrapers (which many call a folly) in the major cities and this will allow for maximisation of space in the cities. Residential tower blocks will also be built. The Greater Bombay and Hyderabad regions see more factories being constructed. The whole Bengali region does not focus on new factory construction, instead focusing on upgrading infrastructure and planting new trees where old ones have been cut down. The greater Delhi and United Provinces regions are also seeing a huge increase in factory numbers. These are mainly where the tanks and aircraft as well as ammunition and guns are being churned out for the rapidly expanding armed forces (in term of equipment). The nation also now has a sizeable navy to speak off and the scientists and engineers have been hard at work to replicate blueprints and look to upgrade the size and equipment of the ships on paper as well as those serving in the fleet. The army expands its tank divisions too and it unviels new model of tanks which are better armoured but easier to construct. Rubble has now been cleared from all cities. New jet aircraft are created and begin to be tested for the air force. Burmese workers are hard at work building industrial factories and railroads to connect population centres and boost trading in the east. Also, most of the Burmese workers are scattered around the nation, leaving huge vacant spaces for farmlands and the large need for agricultural workers. Answering this call are the people living in the United Provinces region as well as the Bengalis. Muslim Bengalis - who have avoided forced labour due to Sen, also take this chance to move to Burmese farmlands. This leads to a general fall in population density for Bengal, opening up more space. The Assamese regions sees the investment paying off as large bridges and roads have been completed along with roads and tunnels. The investment in Bharat by Brazil and the Soviets (before their civil war) has helped to pay dividends and helped to fuel the nation's growth. The money which the South American investors earn is re-invested into the nation (I think that is what the investors would do as their investments are protected due to almost certain growth) which helps to fund the huge growth Bharat is beginning to see. However, a lot of the funds are being drained into the import of coal and other metals as Bharat is still building a base to exploit its own resources. Surya Sen, as Premier and Tata, as Chancellor of Bharat have a very successful run so far. Bharat now begins to use its own businessmen to begin funding nations in Africa such as Ethiopia and Nigeria, where hundreds of businessmen head to so they can start new businesses. They also head to Kenya in great numbers, where there is already a large population of Indian descendants. However, not many peasants emigrate to these nations as they do not have the money to do so or are looking to take the new land opportunities around Bharat itself. The nation quickly feels threatened by the Oceanians as they still hold Lanka, which Bharat sees as its land due to the large Tamil population in the northern regions of the island. The nation is also very angry with the fact that Bharati lands such as Goa and other cities are in foreign hands. The nation feels it must grow economically and militarily before it threatens the owners of the regions to return the lands to Bharat.
  • French Union: The French Union's military completes it period of augmentation and expansion, and sits at 450,000 regular army troops, as well as 50,000 in the French Foreign Legion. All French forces are standardized, with French African troops having the same training and weaponry as those from the French mainland. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. However in this latest batch of expansions, an issue is discovered. Whilst the French owned defenses are impenetrable now to everything but an overwhelming use of force, their is an inherent weakness in the defenses in the south of the French mainland. The small city states of Andorra and Monaco have no defenses, and as a result a foreign power could use these states as gateways into the French mainland from the south if they wished to do so. The French Ministry of Defence goes into crisis mode over this, and the issue is presented to President Auriol. After seeing what he deems to be a glaring error in the nation's defence, his faith is shaken in the border defenses of the the South. The Ministry of Defence proposes three options to him: Firstly, they could leave the issue, and hope no other state spots the weakness, which Auriol dismisses as ludicrous. Secondly, they could offer the two city states fund with which to build defenses, but Auriol states he doesn't believe that they would be of substantial enough strength due to lack of manpower in both states. Thirdly, an capture is launched and the two states are made into autonomous regions of the French Union. Auriol leans back into his chair and ponders this, whilst it is against everything he believes in, especially the idea of people's right to self determination, he doesn't want to risk the safety of France and the whole of Northwest Europe over a few miles of land. So, after much deliberation, he decides that this capture option is the one that shall be taken. A overtly large force is prepared on the boundaries of both states, and march in. In Andorra, the Co-Princes immediately surrender as soon as the French forces amass in the center of the city state, in an attempt to preserve their roles. French forces then get to work building up defenses with the city states border with Spain. In Monaco, the Prince only surrenders after his Palace Guard are defeated in an hour long skirmish with French forces. The French forces then get to work building defenses on the coast to match up with current French defenses. President Auriol begins talks with the Co-Princes of Andorra and the Prince of Monaco over the new constitutions of the two states, as well as the Prince of Liechtenstein, following their acquisition from Switzerland, and it is hoped an agreement will be reached in six months time. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups enter the Mediterranean, forming a new task force for that area. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. It is estimated that by 1965 the African areas of the French Union will be equal to the French mainland in terms of economic prominence. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. The multi-national referendum on the common European currency is successful, and the 'Euro', as it is known, becomes the national currency of France and all administered French lands. This causes the French economy, and the economies of French administered lands, to go through a period of rapid growth. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. More artificial satellites are launched into space and establish themselves in geosynchronous orbit around the planet. An organism is sent into space on one such satellite, a solitary mouse nicknamed 'Mont', with automated provisions that should last for the rest of his natural life. This is a great success, and the French state prints stamps in his honor. Project 'Blue Spear' rockets continue to be mass produced, with over two hundred 'Blue Spear' rockets in the French arsenal.

  • Saudi Arabia: With the Egyptian government refusing our peace offer, the army is told to continue pushing toward Cairo, while the other army group arrives at Alexandria. The Alexandria group then pushes south to aid the Cairo group. It is expected that if Cairo falls, then Egypt will surrender without question. Influence by Qatar on Iraq continues. Industry and Infrastructure improve as well. Military research continues, with the first prototype APC ready for testing later this year. Work on the first A-bomb continues and we ask that Oceania join us in computer research. The occupations of Kuwait, Palestine and Jordan officially ends. However, the nations remain members of the ASF merged military and are still vassals of Saudi Arabia. The Sinai is officially annexed by Palestine. Work on the Mecca-2 continues, expected to be finshed early next year. The Treaty of Tel Aviv is presented to the Egyptian government once again, stating that the current government will be allowed to remain intact as a Saudi puppet if they surrender now and agree to all of the points. If their refusal continues, the current government will be destroyed and replaced with an entirely new one by Saudi Arabia.
    • ​Italian Dip: We ask if you need any help in dealing with Egypt since Libya borders Egypt.
    • Saudi Dip: Saudi Arabia thanks Italy for their offer, but it will not be needed. We ask for a non-aggression pact with Italy.
    • Italian Dip: We except the non-aggression pact that the Saudi Dip made with us.
  • Italy: We completed our first rocket and we are going to launch it. It fits a crew of three people in it. The launch is the most televised event in our history. We are expecting to land the rocket on the moon. Factories continue to produce military supplies. At the age of 76 Benito Mussolini dies due to natural causes. Luigi Einaudi takes his places, but as the President of Italy. The last king Nicola Tommaso Giovanni resigns as king at age 55 and has served as king for 20 years. As his last act as king, he has a ceremony for Mussolini and a statue be made of him in the capital city.
  • No way you're getting a man in space before any of the other superpowers. You have infinitely less resources than any of them.
  • No one switches from a monarchy that fast. Cool it.
    • French Diplomacy: We offer $235 million, twenty 'Auriol' class rockets, and five 'Blue Spear' ICBMs in return for the complete handover of sovereignty of Corsica and Sardinia to the French Union. Do you accept?
    • Italian Dip: Yes, I do accept. Thank you.
    • Libya: 100,000 troops go to the border that faces Egypt, due to fighting going on with Saudi Arabia and Egypt. We wait and see if Saudi Arabia asks for our help or not. Egyptian refugees are being pushed back into their country and not allowed into our country. Our oil rigs are doing great. We give our allies some of our oil. We sell our oil at 16 dollars a barrel.
    • Tunisia: Factories are producting anything from weapons to clothing to toys. Our oil rigs are doing great. We give our allies some of our oil. We sell our oil at 16 dollars a barrel. Our port cities are modernizing. 
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues.  A fifth, sixth and seventh carrier are made and the creation of a small nuclear program in Athens, While this, the army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.

    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts of influencing South Kurdistan.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation finishes major construction on the capital of Santa Salvación with middle income and luxury housing both being built as well as the major industrial and commercial sectors. The city is developed in a modernist sense but also due to some concerns the city planners decide against building the city in superblocks and go for smaller blocks. By this point many of the city's major and most minor governmental structures have been completed and the Federation government has successfully moved to the new city. With about 350,000 full time inhabitants the city continues to grow with it being planned to house just under one million people. The city planners, also getting more funding than previously, though, are able to include large public areas such as parks and monuments taking cues from the United States capital. The city continues its exponential growth with the inhabitants of the city predicted to be nearly 500,000 by 1965 with enough housing and developing jobs and resource jobs to house these people.  A large deposit of titanium is discovered in the Paraguayan state of Alto Parana and the resource companies begin looking to invest in exploitation and finally passes Paraguay's red tape. Brazil, in the state of Piauí, the decent sized titanium and vanadium deposits are more readily exploited due to Brazil's previous pro-exploit procedures and this material is considered for tanks, and vehicles and even some building construction. This development into a major industry is suspected to take at least a year before meaningful material comes out of the site. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers setting the price and superceeding Saudi Arabia's prominence, the National surplus provided for through large amounts of oil money is placed in diversified account as other major sectors of national production are used to cover certain areas. The national surplus is in store to be used in case of another major recession and depression and legislation is put into place protecting it. The Federation also continues its space program incorporating new designs in rockets and the like even using titanium in some designs for its lightness, with the Guyana space center up and running the Federation launches a series of nearly six rockets into space putting a dog, a money and a cat into the various pods. Of all the rockets only two containing the monkeys are destroyed due to oversights in that particular rocket design. A new rocket design is finished with the Almagro I and Almagro II rockets being minted and used for testing and space launches. Using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, and with a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway, Computers are now used to make calculations with the Space program and other major projects. The population of the Federation reaches 147.3 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet and now including Guyana into population figures. The Lusophone population growth lags behind the Hispanic population growth but still outnumbers them heavily. The submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations is drilled heavily and a new class able to launch Cruise missiles is completed and five are added to the fleet. The Federation officially fully vassalizes Bolivia after nearly a decade of influence. The Federation continues to support Castro for the elections coming up.  The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation deploys the Espadas in secret to Colombia right along the Colombian-Venezuelan border and they begin to act like a group of soldiers that were not given their due. Their expert operations record allows for the men to cause utter havoc in rural regions of the country. All identifying marks to the Federation are scrubbed as well, and almost all the men are exclusively Hispanic. The Federation uses Che Guevara as an undercover agent in Colombia beginning to allow him to stage a nationalist and more pro-Federation revolution with backing from the Federation's black ops.  The Federation also finishes development of a new group of weapon systems with guns of all classes under development as well as for export to allies and special case countries. (They are particularly close to the US OTL M-16, Car-15 SMG, MP5, LAW, and various HMG's and LMG's) and outfits its armed forces with the new weapons turning the previous main service rifle into a LMG. The Federation begins a larger program of more modern air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles. The Federation also begins the second round of modernization of its fleet bringing more ships into service - particularly the new Asuncion class destroyers, and Salvação class guided missile cruisers. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is finished with some attack subs being retrofitted or remodeled to fit the weapons. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing.  The Guyanas are fully integrated into the Federation. Infrastructure is upgraded. The Federation begins test drills off the coast of Brazil looking for deposits of oil. Infrastructure development is continued with mainline highways being completed and their linking up with areas in Colombia continuing. However, the expansion of infrastructure brings out some hideaway Venezuelan militant groups left over from the previous civil war. The Federation begins to send arms and munitions to the remaining royalists in Iran secretly and even manages to procure a few modern tanks for them. Two carrier groups - previously deployed in international waters near Europe - are resupplied and redirected toward the Persian Gulf along with multiple expeditionary units of nearly 10,000 highly trained troops just in case. The country opens a few new nuclear plants and has made huge strides into making nuclear power applicable for a modern warship - particularly a carrier.
    • Peru: Peru maintains its pro-Federation stance and its pro-Unification movement with the Federation continues to grow moderately. The Peruvian military now under advisement from the Federation military as well as jointly occupying bases in Peru begins a large buy of Federation equipment purchasing aircraft, some naval ships and all sorts of equipment. The country's infrastructure is worked on extensively as well. Peru, via the Federation, establishes a line of credit with the royalists in Iran allowing for the Iranians to buy arms, and fund their war on credit.
    • Bolivia: Now fully pro-Federation, the Bolivian government continues previous projects and begins standardizing its military equipment and economy with the Federation. The Infrastructure of the country is also improved, particularly the infrastructure in natural gas. The move is done very well and the Infrastructure for it is completed with natural gas becoming a major export for Bolivia. The country begins to show major population growth with nearly 4.2 million people.
    • Antilles Federation: With Trinidad as the capital area the federation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses Federaton assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antilles begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural re-organization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective, the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter-island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the Antilles Islands once held by Germany. Infrastructure is worked on. The new found wealth of the Antilles through cash cropping has left a surplus enough to buy a few Modern warships from the Federation
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The new independent government thanks Brazil for assuring its independence from Cuba or any surrounding nations. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica seeks better relations with Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti and begins to allow for major foreign investment from the Federation. Infrastructure is worked on. The Jamaicans begin an arms buildup establishing a respectable light arms arsenal as well as tank killing weaponry.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: The Volcoff Group continues to make record profits. Orion Industries is founded and immediately begins to buy up large amounts of rare earth minerals. Orion works on building better computers. In partnership with several Swiss companies, Orion hopes to miniaturize computing. These new technologies are coming along well, with several promising prototypes. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue. Oceania still petitions the UN for membership in the Security Council. After the successful launch of Oceania's first satellite, work has now begun on launching living beings into orbit. Computer science advances rapidly due to the plentiful resources. Smaller and smaller devices are coming out of this. Using the rocket technology, the army begins plans to use a modified Ares II rocket to create Oceania's first ICBM's. Oceania once again sends diplomats to Japan, hoping to form the East Asian and Oceanic Co-operation Pact. Oceania offers to aid in stablisation of the government as gesture of goodwill. The disease sweeping East Asia is named Dentine after a scientist, Alfred Dentine discovers its presence in Oceania. The disease swept quickly in Ceylon and Papua, causing numerous deaths. Seeing the deadliness of this disease, Dentine and his colleagues appeal to the Oceanic government to form the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention Oceania.
  • Switzerland: We annex the land that we have acquired from France, and we continue accelerated work on our amphibious transport dock, and our hospital ship. The ATD should be finished by 1960.5, and the hospital ship by 1961. We commission our surface fleet as the Naval Defense Flotilla, and begin to dig a large port to accommodate our naval forces. We move a few small patrol boats to the Mediterranean Sea to boost our defenses until more ships are commissioned. They update the naval ships with all Swiss weaponry to simplify operations. We continue to improve our banking system and tourism, bringing in lots of money. Swiss troops in Liechtenstein are evacuated, and many people flee to Switzerland.
  • Germany: Economic expansion continues. Military withdrawal from Britain continues and most of the troops are re-deployed to Scandinavia, Prussia and southern Germany. Improvements on the tanks and jets continues, but new plans continue to be drafted as well. More aid is sent to the Portuguese and Iranian Royalists. The German navy continues to increase in size and capability. Troops are put on further alert due to Italy leaving the Axis. Colonies are granted their independence, as per the plan. German military forces remain in these countries as they begin a slow withdrawal from them. This is to ensure that the countries do not collapse and to ensure their armed forces are well trained.
    • Yugoslavia: Production of war goods and increased industry continues. The modernization of the navy continues, and the battleship and aircraft carrier continue being constructed.
    • Czechoslovakia: The government increases modernization efforts regarding the military. The political debate over Ruthenia continues.
  • The USSR expands economy, industry and infrastructure. The Grand Plan continues to be enacted and four new SSRs are created: Buryatia, Karaklpakstan, Kalmykia, and Circassia. The elections are held, and Zhukov wins the Premiership by near unanimous vote. The Duma is filled with over 600 representatives total from each SSR and the Supreme Soviet is also reorganized with elected officials. The flag is updated to remove the sickle/hammer/star in the corner and a new flag is designed where the sickle and hammer are enlarged and place in the middle. The star is removed. The nation's name is officially changed to the USER. Yuri Gagarin becomes the first man in space. Zhukov declares that the increasingly advancing space program will put a man on the moon before the end of the decade.
  • Bharat: Keeps the leaflets flying to prove to the governments of the nation that the people are willing to listen and agree with what the Bharatis have to say. Development of resources continue with the Federation funds being put into the development of mining and factories as well as railroads to connect them to transportation hubs to sell them. The armed forces all see more research being poured in with the development of nuclear weapons and nuclear research secretly starting too. Using all the old notes the Bharatis have with them, they begin their nuclear program and begin to secretly contact Japan to see if they would be willing to help in the Bharati Nuclear Program. Farming continues to play a pivotal role and the irrigation projects continue with engineers running the show. New industry is also rapidly being constructed.
  • French Union: The French Union Air Force, now seen as a lesser part of the Armed Forces due to the massive improvements made to the other braches of the French Union's military, starts a massive expansion and augmentation campaign to bring them up to the same level. Recruitment drives begin across all of the French Union, and designs for cutting edge jets, bombers, transport aircraft, and helicopters becomes the goal of the military's engineers. It is hoped that this designs shall be complete within six months. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. With the newly acquired states of Andorra and Monaco improving their defenses to the quality of the rest of the French border. President Auriol's talks with the Co-Princes of Andorra, the Prince of Monaco, and the Prince of Liechtenstein over the future of their states is completed. It is decided that these states shall form a political union so that they gain greater political security, and to ensure their future survival. A Leadership Council shall lead this union, made up of the heads of states of each microstate. The royalty of each nation therefore shall retain their positions as head of state, but will not make decisions on their nation without a vote by the Leadership Council. This council in turn shall answer to the French Presidency, who has the right to veto any of their decisions if they deem it necessary. This union is named the Union of European Microstates. Within days of this union being formed, the Isle of Man requests membership, as they have found it difficult to stand as an independent state following liberation by the French Union, and the other members accept their request. So the Leadership Council of the Union is now made up of the Co-Prince's of Andorra, who only have a single vote on issues, the Prince of Monaco, the Prince of Liechtenstein, and the President of the Isle of Man. A new flag is created to reflect this union, and is flown at the same mast height as the flags of each member state. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups enter the Mediterranean, joining the two carrier groups In this area. The carrier groups in the Atlantic are ordered to station themselves of the coast of Portugal, and to secretly prepare forces for a potential military operation. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. It is estimated that by 1965 the African areas of the French Union will be equal to the French mainland in terms of economic prominence. The use of the Euro by all French Union and French administered lands launches the French Union into the top five economies of the planet. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. A referendum on free movement between all French Union and French administered lands is planned for six months time as the next step to this. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. A number of rockets and satellites are launched into space carrying various organisms. The most publicized is the chimpanzee 'Espace', who is launched with automated provisions that should last for the rest of his natural life. This is a great success, and a timetable to launch a man into space in six months time is planned. Project 'Blue Spear' rockets continue to be mass produced, with over three hundred 'Blue Spear' rockets in the French arsenal.
    • England: French troops move farther into England from Scotland and take over more control from Germany. The reception is jubilant, as the French troops are seen as liberators. French troops hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils and hygienic materials. The English government continues discussions between the Scottish, Welsh and English governments over a potential revival of the United Kingdom sans Ireland, with a pro-monarchist view being held by all three groups. There are calls for a Cornish state if a union is created. A larger majority of the free population accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and more begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties continue to deepen with Scotland, Belgium, Wales, Union of European Microstates, Greenland, Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. The referendum on open borders is planned for six months time.
    • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly.

1960.5

John F. Kennedy runs for and is elected President of the United States. The US launches its first manned mission into space just after the USER. Kennedy looks to beat the USER to the moon.

America barely has a space program as Enc never focused much on it. But whatever, Kennedy is President Ambitious anyway.

New Zealand's first television station begins broadcasting.

The Congo begins a large project to gain localized power beginning to import industrial equipment and geologists from countries lke Germany, the US and the Federation.

Somalia begins suffering major issues from Muslim extremists unsatisfied with how the modern Somali government was formed.

The City of Singapore looks to be considered a more autonomous region within the Oceanic Commonwealth and begins clamouring for Singapore to be a much more powerful economic center.

  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation begins major exploitation of titanium throughout the country and becomes a major producer and begins implementing into many special buildings as well as tanks, armored vehicles and now, rockets. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers setting the price and superceding Saudi Arabia's prominence. The national surplus provided for through large amounts of oil money is placed in diversified accounts as other major sectors of national production are used to cover certain areas. The national surplus is in store to be used in case of another major recession and depression and legislation is put into place protecting it. A new rocket design is finished with the Almagro I and Almagro II rockets being minted and used for testing and space launches They are also adapted for military uses as they are built into ICBM variants capable of carrying nuclear warheads great distances. Using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, and with a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway, Computers are now used to make calculations with the space program and other major projects. The Federation space program launches not one but two men in a pod into orbit who are recovered safely. The country also announces it will attempt to reach the moon by the end of the decade. The population of the Federation reaches 147.3 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet and now including Guyana into population figures. The Lusophone population growth lags behind the Hispanic population growth but still outnumbers them heavily. The submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations is drilled heavily and a new class able to launch Cruise missiles is completed and five are added to the fleet. The Federation officially fully vassalizes Cuba after nearly a decade of influence and the successful election of Castro to the presidency of Cuba. The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation deploys the Espadas in secret to Colombia right along the Colombian-Venezuelan border and they begin to act like a group of soldiers that were not given their due. Their expert operations record allows for the men to cause utter havoc in rural regions of the country. All identifying marks to the Federation are scrubbed as well, and almost all the men are exclusively Hispanic. The Federation uses Che Guevara as an undercover agent in Colombia beginning to allow him to stage a nationalist and more pro-Federation revolution with backing from the Federation's black ops The Federation also begins to construct its first nuclear powered aircraft carrier - the first of its kind.  The Federation also finishes development of a new group of weapon systems with guns of all classes under development as well as for export to allies and special case countries. (They are particularly close to the US OTL M-16, Car-15 SMG, MP5, LAW, and various HMG's and LMG's) and outfits its armed forces with the new weapons turning the previous main service rifle into a LMG. The Federation begins a larger program of more modern air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles. The Federation also begins the second round of modernization of its fleet bringing more ships into service - particularly the new Asuncion class destroyers, and Salvação class guided missile cruisers. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is finished with some attack subs being retrofitted or remodeled to fit the weapons. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing.  The Guyanas are fully integrated into the Federation. Infrastructure is upgraded. The Federation begins test drills off the coast of Brazil looking for deposits of oil. Infrastructure development is continued with mainline highways being completed and their linking up with areas in Colombia continuing. However, the expansion of infrastructure brings out some hideaway Venezuelan militant groups left over from the previous civil war. The Federation continues to send arms to various remaining royalists managing to arm a group loyal to Shahnaz Pahlavi who was not killed. The arms include high tech jets, tanks, arms, munitions, and proxy mercenaries who are able to train the Iranian royalist soldiers in effective warfare. Two carrier groups - previously deployed in international waters near Europe - are resupplied and redirected toward the Persian Gulf along with multiple expeditionary units of nearly 10,000 highly trained troops just in case. The Federation begins construction of a large scale communications satellite making use of new concepts and engineering to get major sections complete. With a crew of nearly five it's the most ambitious program yet attempting to double as a research station. The costs, usually considered extraordinary, are highly privatized, making business involvement with the government for materials, a cheap streamlined process that allows accelerated construction. The country also builds its first major computer line, while large, and perform decently enough calculations to get work done. The EE-40 main battle tank undergoes an upgrade plan in which its fire control, stability, and vulnerabilities are all refined or upgraded. Seeing profit once again in stealth aircraft, the Federation begins the development of a new stealth aircraft. Plans for a nuclear submarines are finalized and the ship is expected to undergo initial construction in the next six months to one year. The Federation signs a full scale deal with the Congo offering Heavy Industrial equipment, Geologists and large scale investment from Resource companies in which their cut of pay will be a bare minimum to remain profitable in order to promote Pro-Federation relations in the Congo as well as helping the major development of the nation.
  • Peru: Peru maintains its pro-Federation stance and its pro-Unification movement with the Federation continues to grow moderately. The Peruvian military now under advisement from the Federation military as well as jointly occupying bases in Peru begins a large buy of Federation equipment purchasing aircraft, some naval ships and all sorts of equipment. The country's infrastructure is worked on extensively as well. Peru, via the Federation, establishes a line of credit with the royalists in Iran allowing for the Iranians to buy arms, and fund their war on credit.
  • Bolivia: Now fully pro-Federation, the Bolivian government continues previous projects and begins standardizing its military equipment and economy with the Federation. The Infrastructure of the country is also improved, particularly the infrastructure in natural gas. The move is done very well and the Infrastructure for it is completed with natural gas becoming a major export for Bolivia. The country begins to show major population growth with nearly 4.2 million people.
  • Antilles Federation: With Trinidad as the capital area the federation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses Federaton assistance to hold 
  • the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antilles begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural re-organization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective, the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter-island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the Antilles Islands once held by Germany. Infrastructure is worked on. The new found wealth of the Antilles through cash cropping has left a surplus enough to buy a few modern warships from the Federation
  • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica seeks better relations with Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti and begins to allow for major foreign investment from the Federation. Infrastructure is worked on. The Jamaicans begin an arms buildup establishing a respectable light arms arsenal as well as tank killing weaponry.
  • Cuba: Cuba coming off elections officially elects Fidel Castro and he begins a process of major infrastructural, economic and military improvement which are paid for by a various amount of loans, and funds from the national GDP itself. The country itself particularly takes interests in acquisitions of Naval ships attempting to be a local naval power. Fidel Castro also while a staunch nationalist for Cuba does not force out any foreign business of the US or the Federation but rather invites more wishing to get huge profits coming into the country. Companies in Cuba also advertise the Island nations as a tourist haven and he allows open tourism through the country. 
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: The Volcoff Group continues to make record profits. Orion Industries is founded and immediately begins to buy up large amounts of rare earth minerals. Orion works on building better computers. In partnership with several Swiss companies, Orion hopes to miniaturize computing. These new technologies are coming along well, with several promising prototypes. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities, though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue. Oceania still petitions the UN for membership in the Security Council. After the successful launch of Oceania's first satellite, work has now begun on launching living beings into orbit. Computer science advances rapidly due to the plentiful resources. Smaller and smaller devices are coming out of this. Using the rocket technology, the army begins plans to use a modified Ares II rocket to create Oceania's first ICBM's. Oceania once again sends diplomats to Japan, hoping to form the East Asian and Oceanic Co-operation Pact. Oceania offers to aid in stablisation of the government as gesture of goodwill. The disease sweeping East Asia is named Dentine after a scientist, Alfred Dentine discovers its presence in Oceania. The disease swept quickly in Ceylon and Papua, causing numerous deaths. Seeing the deadliness of this disease, Dentine and his colleagues appeal to the Oceanic government to form the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention Oceania. Oceania grants Singapore more freedom and invests heavily in their industry and finance. Oceania wants Singapore to become an important financial centre. New Zealand's TV broadcasts the election results for the first televised Presidential election in Oceania's history.
    • Japanese Empire Dip: We agree to and sign the East Asian and Oceanic Co-Prosperity Sphere alliance with the Oceanic Commonwealth, and look forward to better relations and more co-operation in the near future.
  • Saudi Arabia: Forces arrive at Cairo, and put the city under seige. Another army group is formed to attack the remainder of Egypt the the first two army groups missed during the initail push to Alexandria and Cairo. Building on the Sinai begins, foucusing on industry and infrastructure. Develpoment in the rest of the Saudi sphere continues. Military research is continued, with the testing of our first APC begins. The test is a relitve succsuess, with the veihecle stopping small arms fire. Military leaders are displeased however, as the vehicle is expensive to make. Work on the first Atomic bomb continues, the first test is expected to occur in about a decade. Influence on Qatar and Iraq continue, Iraq is expected to be vassalized in another six months to one year. The treaty of Tel Aviv is again presented to the Egyptian government, stating we will allow the Egyptian government to remain in power (as a vassal, of course) if they surrender before Cairo falls, which is expected to occur in roughly six months. The new army group is successful, taking much of Egypt's remaining land. Reforms continue inside the Saudi sphere. What fertile land exists in the Saudi sphere is reworked for the purpose of feeding the Saudi people and decreasing reliance on foreign food import. 
  • Italy: We thank the French for the nukes, money and rockets we received. We upgrade our military to be more modern. The king declares war on Egypt. Our military sends 1.5 million troops into Egypt after and Egyption terrorist group goes into Libya and attacks a government building killing 50 people and injuring 50 people. Other terrorist attack have been made also in populated cities in Libya. If the leader of Egypt does not come down we will be forced to shoot one of our nukes into Egypt.
    • Libya: We send 500,000 troops in Egypt to stop the terrorist attack on our country. Making the total of Italian troops to two million in Egypt. 
    • Tunisia: We send military aid and medical aid into Egypt to help out the troops.
    • The USER threatens to nuke Italy if it nukes Egypt. Although the USER does not support Egypt but supports Saudi Arabia instead, nuclear weapons should not be used in this manner.
    • Saudi Arabia states that everyone needs to calm down, but also states that use of atomic weapons against Egypt will be seen as an attack of war against Saudi Arabia and the Saudi Sphere. Saudi Arabia also demands that Italian troops exit Egypt.
    • Egypt never commited any act of terrorism (I checked every post regarding Libya). You're not allowed to control someone else's nation like that ... anything pertaining to this has been crossed out and is now rendered moot. -Feud
  • Switzerland: We launch our amphibious transport dock, christening it the SNDS Jura. It has a 100-bed hospital, storage to carry 150 tons of foodstuffs, 50 tons of other supplies and 20 tons of fuel. It is armed with defensive weapons, including two Oerlikon 35 mm autocannons, six Oerlikon 20 mm autocannons, and twelve MG-51 heavy machine guns. It will carry four helicopters and eight small boats. We send it on a shakedown cruise through the Mediterranean Sea.
  • Bharat: The Agay Badho campaign begins to become a greater occurence in the average Bharati's life. The agricultural aspect of the program has begun to be implemented all around farms as fertilisers are being sold at farmer-friendly prices to increase productivity. The information which was stored by Congress about the type of compost which increases yields naturally by 150% begins once more to be looked into and on government land, the first experiment to do with this is launched to see what merit this type of crop growing holds for the food production. Wells are built all around rural villages as advisors come to show the villagers how to lead a life without having to depend on water. However, this also includes making multiple holes into the ground which would allow rainwater to help top up the ground-water when it rains. Hundreds of thousands of reserviours, ranging from small to the size of a large metropolitan metropolis are constructed and rebuilt to help store water and help farmers farm the land as well as provide people with clean water. A few dozen major dams have begun to be built with hundreds of smaller dams being built all around the nation to store water and generate electricity from it. Bharati engineers play a huge part in these developments, leading the projects themselves and racing to complete the projects using the best materials, most efficient workforce and the most cost-effective parts. Hundreds of iron-mines and natural gas deposits as well as minerals and the element thorium is found. Using the Federation money, work begins rapidly in constructing mines, refinaries, industry and that sort of stuff. This will allow for many projects to be worked on at once and be completed quickly. The government is looking for every opportunity it gets to expand the influence of the nation of Bharat around the world. It will also look to claim territories which it sees as rightfully theirs. Talks with the Nepali and Sikkimese monarchs continue and the Nepali monarch is promised that the propaganda leaflets will be stopped if he agrees for his nation to join the nation of Bharat. To the staunchly Hindu king (Nepalis are Hindus), the religious side is attractive and he agrees to sign a multitide of economic and military deals with the nation of Bharat. This will allow for the region to begin exploiting its own resources and will help the nation rearm its armed forces too. Therefore, the propaganda dropping is reduced significantly, restricted to rural regions. The Sikkimese monarch is a little more conservative but still agrees to a multitude of economic deals with Bharat. The huge slave labour workforce is hard at work all around the nation. However, where there is a need for better workers, normal workers are used. Minimum wage has taken effect and it is helping many workers get basic necessities being met for the Hindu workers. The Special Reserved Zone (Balochistan) sees a skyrocketing of the population. Thousands of small irrigation projects continue to be built in the SRZ with a few major ones being work on alongside. However, in some regions starvation is beginning to set in. In the "Hindu hearland", huge industrial projects continue as the workers are forced to work hard and fast to get the projects completed quickly. The construction of the docks continue in the major port regions of the nation. It is expected to take a few years but once complete, they will be able to accommodate a lot of new shipping and military ships. Plans for the new airport at Ulway is complete and construction has already begun. There will be three new terminals in the new airport which will accommodate tourists, businessmen, military men and everyone else. Construction is expected to take only four years as a large workforce has been alloted for the project. The first skyscrapers have been approved and will be constructed slightly farther inland than Ulway. The Greater Bombay and Hyderabad regions see more factories being constructed. The whole Bengali region does not focus on new factory construction, instead focusing on upgrading infrastructure and planting new trees where old ones have been cut down. The greater Delhi and United Provinces regions are also seeing a huge increase in factory numbers. These are mainly where the tanks and aircraft as well as ammunition and guns are being churned out for the rapidly expanding armed forces (in term of equipment).Scientists and engineers continue to replicate blueprints and look to upgrade the size and equipment of the ships on paper as well as those serving in the fleet. The army expands its tank divisions too and it unveils new model of tanks which are better armoured but easier to construct. Rubble has now been cleared from all cities. New jet aircraft are created and begin to be tested for the air force. Burmese workers are hard at work building industrial factories and railroads to connect population centres and boost trading in the east. Also, most of the Burmese workers are scattered around the nation, leaving huge vacant spaces for farmlands and the large need for agricultural workers. The huge new influx of settlers has lead to the easing of population in many areas in the north while a large gain in Burma itself. Most of the people who have moved are either Bengalis, Biharis or from the United Provinces. The Assamese regions are now one of the most developed in the nation and transportation in the region is surprisingly the smoothest in the whole nation. The re-investment a year ago, has caused an even greater growth rate of the nation and the nation begins to grow in all sectors rapidly. However, a lot of the funds are still being drained into the import of coal and other metals as Bharat is still building a base to exploit its own resources, but slowly but surely the nation is getting there. Surya Sen, as Premier and Tata, as Chancellor of Bharat have a very successful run so far. Bharat continues to use its own businessmen to begin funding nations in Africa such as Ethiopia and Nigeria, where hundreds of businessmen head to so they can start new businesses. They also head to Kenya in great numbers, where there is already a large population of Indian descendants. However, not many peasants emigrate to these nations as they do not have the money to do so or are looking to take the new land opportunities around Bharat itself. The nation continues to upgrade their army and navy significantly, with the first research into computer projects beginning and many rooms dedicated to them beginning construction. Along with this, with the radioactive material received from the Federation begins to be put into nuclear development along with the commercial side also beginning to be researched. The research complexes are built in Trombay and begin to see heavy work done. The nation also sees the conditions in Somalia and begins to fund the government in large amounts to keep the government of Somalia in power. With this, they also seek to establish good relations with the nation's government. The Congo is offered investments and support from the Bharatis who are completely willing to invest in the nation and invest in their resource exploitation programs, offering to help them with the machninary Bharat itself begins to use as soon as they have been constructed and put to use. Investment in Nigeria also begins to be increased as the Bharati government looks to invest money in foreign nations. It is also put in Kenya where a large number of Indian descendant use the money to expand their businesses.
    • Saudi Dip: Saudi Arabia wishes to establish diplomatic relations with Bharat.
    • Bharat declines for now.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues.  A fifth, sixth and seventh carrier are built and the creation of a small nuclear program in Athens, While this, the army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts of influencing South Kurdistan.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Too many carriers for a nation like you ... Greece does not have the logisitics for something like that. I already said that .. alter the post. -Feud
  • Japanese Empire: All programs are continued and pushed forward. Civil nuclear energy is close to being established though it will take a few more months to finish. Meanwhile, research into fusion nuclear reactions is also pushed forward with the intention of creating a stronger nuclear weapon. Repression in China and Korea continue as the government calls for rebels to surrender before negotiations can begin. Repression begins to work more heavily toward dropping leaflets and multiple checkpoints on a variety of different roads. On the side, however, the repression is looking to be successful as the Chinese and other rebels are being successfully defeated in nearly every single engagement. Development of a bullet train continues it's research and development, and nears total completion. Development in robotics and electronics and other areas begin (basic robotics did exist, look it up.) The Japanese economy continues to rise now being one of the world's most dynamic and powerful economies. Work begins on integrating Manchukuo and Korea into the Japanese government fully, beginning with the delegation of several public services such as buses, trains, postal services, etc. into the government of Japan, rather than the individual governments of the puppets. Secret: We begin the development of two new mechanized units by diverting more funds toward military research and development. The first vehicle is a tank, codenamed "Mori Doragon 森ドラゴン" or Forest Dragon. The next vehicle is Japan's first helicopter, codenamed "Sukaisāpento スカイサーペント" or Sky Serpent. 
    • Bharati Diplomacy: Seeing the long-time standing allies Sen (representing Bharat) and Japan have been, Bharat looks to acquire two new aircraft carriers from the Japanese. We are willing to pay a good price if the Japanese are willing to sell. We are also willing to begin a joint project to develop a few new fighters along with increasing regional co-operation and bringing trade levels back to the % they had been when Bengal was trading with Japan. We would like Japanese investments in our ecnomy, and we will likewise do the same.
    • Manchukuo: Manchukuo continues to grow economically as oil exports grow and heavy industry expands. Troops are deployed to China to help hold down the region. The Manchu government begins various Infrastructure related projects in the attempt to help link and unify the country more. Pro-Manchu birth rates are also secretly subsidized in order to bring the Manchus out of the minority. With the delegation of public services to the Japanese government, political moves are made to begin the adjustment of several independent economic policies of Manchukuo to be on par with Japanese economic policies in order to better facilitate the delegation of public services.
    • Indonesia: Economic development continues as the country begins to diversify the economy into areas other then resource exploitation. Oil begins to be exploited and exported to Japan and its other Asian states. 
    • Vietnam: Tensions continue to rise. Infrastructural projects are undertaken in order to push the country into the ability to speedily exploit its land and resources for the growth of the economy. This is done in earnest. Timber and rubber begin to flow out of Vietnam and into the hands of the Japanese industries, fueling more industrial growth.
    • Reformed Republic of China: Repression continues in the puppet state as soldiers under the control of the Japanese government are used to deal with the rebels, instead of soldiers under control of the local government. A major propaganda wave begins at the behest of the Japanese government. The propaganda espouses that it is "pointless and detrimental for the two great Mongoloid peoples to be fighting each other, while their true enemies grow to reach their doorstep".
    • Oceanic Dip: Oceania thanks Japan for signing the Eastern Asian and Oceanic Co-prosperity Pact and sees this as an important step toward co-operation and the advancement of Asia in world politics. Oceania suggests that Singapore be the location for the headquarters of the EAOC. It's in a fairly central as well as neutral territory and is becoming a booming centre of technology and finance.
  • Angolan Nationalists: Most of Angola proper is under nationalist control, besieging the Portuguese in Luanda. The two groups begin talks for the basic elements for a new constitution. A flag contest begins.
    • UNITA: Begins talks with the MPLA regarding the drafting of a constitution. They insist on federal and parliamentary elements. Some look to the Federation as a model.
    • MPLA: Begins talks with the UNITA regarding the drafting of a constitution. They insist that the social system must be modeled after the Soviet Union, and provisions regarding the allevation of poverty.
  • The USER expands military, industry, and economy. A great statue, the Motherland Calls, is erected in memory of all the brave men who lost their lives in the last few great wars of the USSR. Yuri Gagarin returns to earth and is celebrated as a national hero as the first man in space. Zhukov takes President Kennedy's challenge with great enthusiasm. He asks the Supreme Soviet and the Duma for more funding into the space program, but also asks the US if they are willing to co-operate on a moon project. 
  • French Union: Recruitment drives continue across all of the French Union for the Air Force, and the designs of the new model jets, bombers, transport aircraft, and helicopters are completed, and as a result begin to be manufactured in large numbers. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups enter the Mediterranean, joining the four carrier groups In this area. The carrier groups in the Atlantic remained stationed off the coast of Portugal, with one patrolling the waters nearby the Azores, and one patrolling the waters near Madeira. The other four carrier groups remain off the coast of the Portuguese mainland. All of the carrier groups secretly begin to prepare amphibious landing groups, along with marking targets for aircraft in the nearby area. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. It is estimated that by 1965 the African areas of the French Union will be equal to the French mainland in terms of economic prominence. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. The multi-national referendum on free movement between all French Union and French administered lands is successful. After years of discussion between the English, Scottish, and Welsh governments, the Kingdom of Great Britain is reestablished. This is a union of all three states, as well as a newly sovereign Cornwall, who have been granted statehood on the basis of their culturally unique identity. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. A rocket is launched into space carrying a French woman by the name of Jasmine Bastide, making here the first woman in space, which is seen as a grand achievement by the French public, and all those in French administered lands. She successfully returns to Earth, and goes on a tour of all French and French administered lands to drum up feelings of unity. This huge success leads to the FSA receiving even greater funding, with the goal of reaching the moon being timetable before the decade is up. Project 'Blue Spear' rockets continue to be mass produced, with over four hundred 'Blue Spear' rockets in the French arsenal.
    • Kingdom of Great Britain: French troops take complete control over from Germany in England, and as a result the Kingdom of Great Britain is reestablished. The Kingdom covers all of the island of Great Britain, and is made up of the member states of England, Scotland, Wales, and the newly sovereign Cornwall. The monarchy is reestablished, with the House of Windsor taking their rightful place. Elizabeth II is crowned Queen of Great Britain as a result. Winston Churchill returns to the Kingdom from France, and after a flash election, is elected the Prime Minister of the new state. Celebrations take place across the state, with French troops joining in. Both Elizabeth II and Winston Churchill give speeches preaching Pro-French and Pro-'Free European' ideals, as well as pledging their full support to the idea of a federation of free and democratic European states. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. French troops continue to hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils and hygienic materials. A larger majority of the population accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and more begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Greenland, and Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. The referendum on open borders is successful, and some citizens move abroad for work.
    • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Kingdom of Great Britain, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.

    • Belgium: The Belgian government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. French arms, as well as industrial equipment, continue to be shipped to Belgium from France in an attempt to improve the Belgian military, as well as the economy. Ties continues to deepen with the Kingdom of Great Britain, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and Greenland as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. More Germanic unrest appears In the Flanders region of Belgium, leading to more armed unrest. The referendum on open borders is successful, and some citizens move abroad for work.
    • Greenland: The Greenlander government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' views. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and the Kingdom of Great Britain, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. The referendum on open borders is successful, and some citizens move abroad for work.

1961.0

Japan and Oceania sign a prosperity pact that seems to be both economic and Military throwing out past qualms over the Philippines, and the former British colonies which are now part of the Commonwealth, in the spirit of economic advancement

The Republic of Congo-Brazaville, and Congo proper show signs of border disputes as leaders of both begin showing supremely nationalist tendencies to unite the two Congos. 

Former French Central Africa attempts to remain a fully fledged nation in itself quelling all attempts to split leaving Niger, Chad, some lands to the south as contiguous parts of the Central African Federation, a nationalist tendency to take over Congo-Brazaville and Gabon are well known in the populace as well as the government purportedly egged on by the government to ignore other major problems.

Korea once again shows signs of resistance against the Japanese integration while Manchuria having profited greatly from Japanese influence more than not begins the integration process with little to no issues. This also has to do with large amounts of Japanese living within Manchuria.

Shi'a militants begin to crop up in the Saudi's sphere of influence highly resistant to being ruled over by a Sunni government. Booming oil business in Saudi Arabia as well as a slow influx of more equalist culture begin to take hold in Saudi Arabia proper.

No major Shi'a in the Saudi area. They're mostly in Iran and shit.

Most nations space programs continue with a new emphasis being put on the American space program by JFK in an attempt to throw America back on top.

The various groups in Angola begin to slaugher each other and civilians as the Portuguese withdraw.

Most colonies have been vacated. Some current exceptions include small colonies like Goa and Macau, but they are also scheduled to be evacuated at some time.

Some conservative elements in Nepal and Sikkim still want independence from India, and demand that their governments do not submit.

  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation begins major exploitation of titanium throughout the country and becomes a major producer and begins implementing into many special buildings as well as tanks, armored vehicles and now, rockets. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers setting the price and superceding Saudi Arabia's prominence. The national surplus provided for through large amounts of oil money is placed in diversified accounts as other major sectors of national production are used to cover certain areas. The national surplus is in store to be used in case of another major recession and depression and legislation is put into place protecting it. The Almagro III is minted and used for ICBM's in particular arming them with new warheads. The Federation now nearly has 15,000 Nuclear weapons of various yields and uses. Using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, and with a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway, Computers are now used to make calculations with the space program and other major projects. The Federation space program launches a series of three-man missions doing testing for computer systems for the flight to the Moon they are considered a success. A Rocket blows up on launch killing two crew members but the program perserveres. The country also announces it will attempt to reach the moon by the end of the decade. The population of the Federation reaches 156.1 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet and now including Guyana into population figures. The submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations is drilled heavily and a new class able to launch Cruise missiles is completed and five are added to the fleet. The Federation officially fully vassalizes Cuba after nearly a decade of influence and the successful election of Castro to the presidency of Cuba. The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation deploys the Espadas in secret to Colombia right along the Colombian-Venezuelan border and they begin to act like a group of soldiers that were not given their due. Their expert operations record allows for the men to cause utter havoc in rural regions of the country. All identifying marks to the Federation are scrubbed as well, and almost all the men are exclusively Hispanic. The Federation uses Che Guevara as an undercover agent in Colombia beginning to allow him to stage a nationalist and more pro-Federation revolution with backing from the Federation's black ops The Federation also begins to construct its first nuclear powered aircraft carrier - the first of its kind which is around 25% complete.  The Federation also finishes development of a new group of weapon systems with guns of all classes under development as well as for export to allies and special case countries. (They are particularly close to the US OTL M-16, Car-15 SMG, MP5, LAW, and various HMG's and LMG's) and outfits its armed forces with the new weapons turning the previous main service rifle into a LMG. The Federation begins a larger program of more modern air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles. The Federation also begins the second round of modernization of its fleet bringing more ships into service - particularly the new Asuncion class destroyers, and Salvação class guided missile cruisers. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is finished with some attack subs being retrofitted or remodeled to fit the weapons. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing.  The Guyanas are fully integrated into the Federation. Infrastructure is upgraded. The Federation begins test drills off the coast of Brazil looking for deposits of oil. Infrastructure development is continued with mainline highways being completed and their linking up with areas in Colombia continuing.  The Federation continues to send arms to various remaining royalists managing to arm a group loyal to Shahnaz Pahlavi who was not killed. The arms include high tech jets, tanks, arms, munitions, and proxy mercenaries who are able to train the Iranian royalist soldiers in effective warfare. The Federation begins construction of a large scale communications satellite making use of new concepts and engineering to get major sections complete. With a crew of nearly five it's the most ambitious program yet attempting to double as a research station. The costs, usually considered extraordinary, are highly privatized, making business involvement with the government for materials, a cheap streamlined process that allows accelerated construction. The country also builds its first major computer line, while large, and perform decently enough calculations to get work done. The EE-40 main battle tank undergoes an upgrade plan in which its fire control, stability, and vulnerabilities are all refined or upgraded. Seeing profit once again in stealth aircraft, the Federation begins the development of a new stealth aircraft. Plans for a nuclear submarines are finalized and the ship is put under construction. The Federation signs a full scale deal with the Congo offering Heavy Industrial equipment, Geologists and large scale investment from Resource companies in which their cut of pay will be a bare minimum to remain profitable in order to promote Pro-Federation relations in the Congo as well as helping the major development of the nation. The Federation openly recognizes the Central African Federation and begins to open up relations with the country. The Federation recalls its two carrier groups from the Persian Gulf and deploy two separate groups to the Central Atlantic near the Canary islands and within a 200 mile patrol area to give off some experience to the fleet.
    • Peru: Peru maintains its pro-Federation stance and its pro-Unification movement with the Federation continues to grow moderately. The Peruvian military now under advisement from the Federation military as well as jointly occupying bases in Peru begins a large buy of Federation equipment purchasing aircraft, some naval ships and all sorts of equipment. The country's infrastructure is worked on extensively as well. Peru, via the Federation, establishes a line of credit with the royalists in Iran allowing for the Iranians to buy arms, and fund their war on credit.
    • Bolivia: Now fully pro-Federation, the Bolivian government continues previous projects and begins standardizing its military equipment and economy with the Federation. The Infrastructure of the country is also improved, particularly the infrastructure in natural gas. The move is done very well and the Infrastructure for it is completed with natural gas becoming a major export for Bolivia. The country begins to show major population growth with nearly 4.2 million people.
    • Antilles Federation: With Trinidad as the capital area the federation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses Federaton assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antilles begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural re-organization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective, the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter-island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the Antilles Islands once held by Germany. Infrastructure is worked on. The new found wealth of the Antilles through cash cropping has left a surplus enough to buy a few modern warships from the Federation.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica seeks better relations with Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti and begins to allow for major foreign investment from the Federation. Infrastructure is worked on. The Jamaicans begin an arms buildup establishing a respectable light arms arsenal as well as tank killing weaponry.
    • Cuba: Cuba, coming off elections, officially elects Fidel Castro and he begins a process of major infrastructural, economic and military improvement which is paid for by a various amount of loans, and funds from the national GDP itself. The country itself particularly takes interests in acquisitions of naval ships attempting to be a local naval power. Fidel Castro also while a staunch nationalist for Cuba does not force out any foreign business of the US or the Federation but rather invites more wishing to get huge profits coming into the country. Companies in Cuba also advertise the island nation as a tourist haven and he allows open tourism through the country.
  • Saudi Arabia: Saudi forces push into the Cairo Metro taking the city. As Cairo was the last Egyptian stronghold, the war is declared over. The Egyptian government is imprisoned, and the newly created Egyptian government signs the treaty of Alexanadria. The treaty of Tel Aviv is used as a base for the other points. We encourge the building of ports and such in the City of Alexandria. Industry and Infrastructure expand in the Saudi Bloc. The military improves in the Saudi sphere. Influence on Iraq concludes with the nation being integrated into the Saudi sphere. Influence on Qatar continues. With the recent militant uprisings, the King begins to talk with his advisors to discuss ways to lower violence in the region. To try and find a temporary, non-violent solution, laws are passed regarding non-Sunni Muslims and non-Muslims in general. These laws state that all religions are to be treated equally. The laws pass with a popular vote in Saudi Arabia and Yemen, with plans to hold voting in the other vassals are made for later this year. Work on our first A-bomb continue, as does other military research and testing. The Mecca-2 sets sail for the first time with success. Work on our first aircraft carrier, the Medina-1 begins. The rise of total union ideas begin in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Kuwait. Iraq and Egypt join the ASF. A rise in nationalism, combined with government urging, has created a birth rate increase. The population of Saudi Arabia proper stands at roughly 5.1 million. (It was 4.8 at this point in the OTL). Land reforms continue across the Saudi sphere in an attempt to lower dependece on foreign food, foucsing on areas near the Nile River.
    • Egypt: Industry and Infrastructure expand. Military is developed further. We ask that Oceania and Greece invest in Egyptian companies. (Add what you want Warman, do not erase what I have posted).
  • Germany: German troops have completely withdrawn from England (to satisfy all you haters). German troops continue to be re-deployed to the homeland. Small contingents of troops are still present in former German colonies to ensure that they are stable, independent, and that their armed forces are well trained. Improvements continue to take place on German tanks, jets and missiles. New designs for such vehicles are made and enter production. More A10 rockets are outfitted with downsized nuclear warheads. All of these rockets are located in Europe at the moment. To further enhance the nuclear capabilities of the Reich, work begins on nuclear-capable submarines as well as miniaturized nuclear missiles for jets. More research on the space program continues. The High Command does not see the tactical value of such space exploration, but supports remaining more or less on the same level as the rest of the world powers. As such, a rocket is sent up into space carrying a German something-naut. The mission is a success, and the first German man in space returns home safe. Germany is suspicious of the many Italian troops massed near Germany's southern border, and prepares troops German diplomats evaluate the situation in Scandinavia, and suggest that annexation is theoretically possible within the next two decades. German becomes a major language spoken in Europe, and as such steps are made to teach German in Scandinavia, while the language becomes promoted in other countries.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues. The army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts of influencing South Kurdistan
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: Computer technology continues to advance with many new companies emerging. Two companies vying for dominance in the tech field are Orion Industries and a newcomer, Dyno Computer Technic. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomon's receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue and begin to see substantial success. Oceania still petitions the UN for membership in the Security Council. After several test runs, Oceania sends a dog and a cat into space. These missions end in success, Oceania plans to launch a man into orbit in the coming year. Computer science advances rapidly due to the plentiful resources. Smaller and smaller devices are coming out of this. Using the rocket technology, the army begins plans to use a modified Ares II rocket to create Oceania's first ICBM's. Oceania grants Singapore more freedom and invests heavily in their industry and finance. Japan and Oceania officially form the Eastern Asian and Oceanic Co Prosperity Pact or the EAOC for short. The EAOC will bring stability to Asia and establish a strong miltary and economic bloc in Asia. Ceylon is heavily fortified with the naval base heavily upgraded and defended. The Oceanic navy commissions a new carrier, the OMS Retribution. The Federation is granted a port in the Philippines and in Ceylon. Oceania proposes Singapore as the headquarters to the EAOC, citing its favourable location and the booming technology and financial centres within the city. Scientists begin to study the field of Kinetic Physics, though at this point it is highly theoretical and marginalised as a "pseudo-science". Nuclear Cruise missiles are placed on Ceylon, with the warheads pointed toward Bharat to ward off any potential aggression. The bulk of the Oceanic navy is re-directed to patrol the Indian Ocean.
  • Italy: We continue to build up our military. A Mafia gang called "Cosa Nostra" meaning "Our Thing" assassinates the king of Italy out in public at a press conference talking about our space program. With his loss Luigi Einaudi takes his place, but as the President of Italy. Since the king had no children, the king of Italy is no more.
    • Libya: We build up the nation to be more modern.
    • Tunisia: We build up the nation to be more modern.
    • No! Stop getting rid of the king. This is not how it works. There is no buildup or reason for them to do this. -Feud
  • Switzerland: We begin to build up our armed forces, adding another 12,000 troops to our reserve forces. We launch our hospital ship, and offer Oceania aid with the pandemic. Security is heightened on the Germanic-Swiss border, with addition guards and security measures added.
  • Japanese Empire: All programs are continued and pushed forward. Civil nuclear energy is close to being established though it will take a few more months to finish. Meanwhile, research into fusion nuclear reactions is also pushed forward with the intention of creating a stronger nuclear weapon. Repression in China and Korea continue as the government calls for rebels to surrender before negotiations can begin. Repression begins to work more heavily toward dropping leaflets and multiple checkpoints on a variety of different roads. On the side, however, the repression is looking to be successful as the Chinese and other rebels are being successfully defeated in nearly every single engagement. Development of a bullet train continues it's research and development, and nears total completion. Development in robotics and electronics and other areas continues, and creates one of the worlds first industrial robots, called "Rodo-sha 労働者" or Worker, which currently works on an automobile manufacturing line in Tokyo. The Japanese economy continues to rise now being one of the world's most dynamic and powerful economies. Work begins on integrating Manchukuo and Korea into the Japanese government fully, beginning with the delegation of several public services such as buses, trains, postal services, etc. into the government of Japan, rather than the individual governments of the puppets. Secret: We continue the development of two new mechanized units by diverting more funds toward military research and development. The first vehicle is a tank, codenamed "Mori Doragon 森ドラゴン" or Forest Dragon. The next vehicle is Japan's first helicopter, codenamed "Sukaisāpento スカイサーペント" or Sky Serpent. More Japanese soldiers are sent to Korea to keep the peace during the integration process, and to help spread more pro-Japanese Empire propaganda. Due to the rising tensions in Korea, the Japanese government authorizes the diversion of part of the opium crop in Manchukuo to Korea.
      • Japanese Empire Dip: We agree with the Bharati to joint develop several new fighters and increase region co-operation while also bringing trade levels back to a higher percent. We also agree to mutual economic investments.
      • Japanese Empire Dip: We also agree to Singapore being the center of the East Asian and Oceanic Co-Prosperity Sphere.
      • Manchukuo: Manchukuo continues to grow economically as oil exports grow and heavy industry expands. Troops are deployed to China to help hold down the region. The Manchu government begins various Infrastructure related projects in the attempt to help link and unify the country more. Pro-Manchu birth rates are also secretly subsidized in order to bring the Manchus out of the minority. With the delegation of public services to the Japanese government, political moves are made to begin the adjustment of several independent economic policies of Manchukuo to be on par with Japanese economic policies in order to better facilitate the delegation of public services. Steel production rates continue to rise. 
      • Indonesia: Economic development continues as the country begins to diversify the economy into areas other then resource exploitation. Oil begins to be exploited and exported to Japan and its other Asian states. The production of rubber, sugar and coffee also begin in several well-suited regions. Expansion of bauxite, silver and tin mines begins, as well as searches for more minterals in nation.
      • Vietnam: Infrastructural projects are undertaken in order to push the country into the ability to speedily exploit its land and resources for the growth of the economy. This is done in earnest. Timber and rubber continues to flow out of Vietnam and into the hands of the Japanese industries, fueling more industrial growth. Banking and coal mining begins to take off.
      • Reformed Republic of China: Repression continues in the puppet state as soldiers under the control of the Japanese government are used to deal with the rebels, instead of soldiers under control of the local government. A major propaganda wave begins at the behest of the Japanese government. The propaganda espouses that it is "pointless and detrimental for the two great Mongoloid peoples to be fighting each other, while their true enemies grow to reach their doorstep".
  • The USER expands everything. More stealth weapons and nuclear weapons are developed. The space program continues with great vigor. Yuri Gagarin is announced to be on the crew for the moon program, now titled the Artemis program. The Vokshod program takes his fellow cosmonauts Alexy Leonov to space where he completes the first spacewalk. He too, is hailed as a national hero and put on the list for the Artemis program. The Artemis 2 is launched this year, unmanned. (Artemis 1 being launched the previous year with a crew.) It returns to Earth in the Pacific Ocean and is deemed, in the words of Sergei Korolov, a total and massive success, as it demonstrates the full capabilities of the Pyotr III rocket. The Luna 2 is launched to perform a controlled lunar impact.
  • French Union: Recruitment drives continue across all of the French Union for the Air Force, and the new model jets, bombers, transport aircraft, and helicopters continue to be manufactured in large numbers. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups enter the South Atlantic. The carrier groups in the Atlantic remained stationed off the coast of Portugal, with one patrolling the waters nearby the Azores, and one patrolling the waters near Madeira. The other four carrier groups remain off the coast of the Portuguese mainland. All of the carrier groups secretly continue to prepare amphibious landing groups, along with marking targets for aircraft in the nearby area. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. It is estimated that by 1965 the African areas of the French Union will be equal to the French mainland in terms of economic prominence. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. A rocket is launched into space carrying a four man crew, seen as a first step to a possible Moon landing, which is seen as a grand achievement by the French public, and all those in French administered lands. Project 'Blue Spear' rockets continue to be mass produced, with over five hundred 'Blue Spear' rockets in the French arsenal.
    • Kingdom of Great Britain: Both Elizabeth II and Winston Churchill give more speeches preaching Pro-French and Pro-'Free European' ideals, as well as continuing their full support for a federation of free and democratic European states. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. French troops continue to hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils and hygienic materials. A larger majority of the population accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and more begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Greenland, and Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Kingdom of Great Britain, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Union of European Microstates: The Union government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Kingdom of Great Britain, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Belgium: The Belgian government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. French arms, as well as industrial equipment, continue to be shipped to Belgium from France in an attempt to improve the Belgian military, as well as the economy. Ties continues to deepen with the Kingdom of Great Britain, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and Greenland as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Greenland: The Greenlander government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' views. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and the Kingdom of Great Britain, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
  • Bharat: Seeing the conservatives in both nations reluctant, the nation begins to pump in money into both nations to help improve infrastructure through the trade deals the nation has developed with the nations and the economic ties present. If the Sikkimese do not accept, in a secret meeting it is stated, they will be annexed rapidly. With more deals signed with the Japanese, development on joint fighter aircraft and other major military hardware begins in earnest. Bharat also begins to invest small amounts of money into Japanese infrastructure to help it grow. Meanwhile, work on the nuclear front is very quick and using the material from the Federation, a bomb is being developed which could put Bharat onto the nuclear map. Reactors around the nation are also being constructed. The thousands of irrigation projects continue at a rapid pace with a lot of jobs provided for people. However, slave labour is still there and is being excessively used. Bharat also begins to sign deals with Afghanistan to help its economy grow. They are willing to invest heavily in the nation for returns and closer alignment of Afghanistan. In Bhutan too, the nation is looking to sign multiple trading deals to help boost connectivity and make roads in the isolated mountain kingdom. Meanwhile, development of an indigenous aircraft carrier begins with the British-origin aircraft carriers being taken to the docks to be upgraded and enlargened to a suitable standard. New tank development also continues and a new tank model is planned to be unveiled soon for the army.

1961.5

The Space programs of various nations continue in earnest.

Congo-Brazaville begins to show signs of civil war as it suffers from corruption, lack of economic development and a failure to act on the Two-Congos Crisis

The Central African Federation (former French Central Africa) begins major campaigns to quell separatism in its various areas as well as an industrialization campaign.

The Japanese government continues its integrational programs.

The Muslim extremists, unlikely to listen to reason, continue to show signs of major problems for Saudi Arabia

The Shia population in the Saudisphere is practically in the hundred and roughly .0001% of the population.

Not In Iraq who he has recently vassalized. Iraq has had problems with Shia's for decades.

That's why Kurdistan was created after WWII: to separate the conflictors.

My bad - totally forgot about that.

  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues. The army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts at influencing South Kurdistan.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Italy: We continue to build up our military. Our space program sends up their first rocket into space. The economy expands due to our oil being exported to the world. We send troops into Chad due to a massive civil war going on in the country. The influencing of Chad starts after stopping the civil war between tribes in the same country.
    • Libya: Military is built up. The navy improves their ports to fit more ships. Troops move to the border of Chad to stop a civil war from getting bloody.
    • Tunisia: Trading increases with the French colonies of Africa.
    • Chad is part of the Central African Federation and is for the most part stable. There is no civil war and there is no influencing a highly nationalistic newly independent African nation
  • Saudi Arabia: Rebuilding of Egypt and the Sinai continue. The production of military planes, bullets and weapons slows down, but continues despite the end of the war, but again, at a slower rate than before. Industry and infrastructure are also improved. Extremist groups that don't listen to reason are put down with force, but we try reach a peaceful solution. Influence on Qatar continues, and influence on the UAE begins. Work on our first A-bomb continues, with a test expected to occur in 1970. Other military research continues, and the Medina-1 is expected to be finished late next year. Talks on how to reduce religous tensions continue. Rise of total union ideas continues in Yemen,Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Land reforms continue, increasing domestic food production. The military is reworked to cover the new borders. The voting on religous equality laws passes in every vassal except Iraq and Egypt, who have not yet voted due to the fact that they only recently joined the Saudi sphere.
    • Federation Dip: We ask the the Saudis keep the Suez Canal neutral ground or risk provocation of wars with various nations that would enjoy control of it. This is not a threat we just feel the neutral status of Suez needs to be respected
      • Saudi Dip: Saudi Arabia assures the Federation and the global community that the Suez Canal will remain neutral and availble for any nation to use, as long as that nation follows international law.
    • Egypt: Military, industry and infrastructure are improved. The economy grows due to the investments in industry. We ask that Oceania and Greece invest in Egyptian companies. We offer to lease ports/military bases to Greece and Oceania. (I don't think he is playing any longer, but I'll keep posting Egypt separate from the rest.)
      • Oceanic D Oceania reminds Saudi Arabia that the Commonwealth will control Alexandria on a cycle lease system with the next renewal coming up in 1980. We agree to invest heavily in Egyptian corporations and business in Alexandria. We hope to turn into the pulsating knowledge centre of the world, like it once was so long ago.
  • Germany: German troops continue to be re-deployed to the homeland. Small contingents of troops are still present in former German colonies to ensure that they are stable, independent and that their armed forces are well trained. Improvements continue to take place on German tanks, jets and missiles. New designs for such vehicles are made and enter production. More A10 rockets are outfitted with downsized nuclear warheads. All of these rockets are located in Europe at the moment. To further enhance the nuclear capabilities of the Reich, work begins on nuclear-capable submarines as well as miniaturized nuclear missiles for jets. More research on the space program continues. The High Command does not see the tactical value of such space exploration, but supports remaining more or less on the same level as the rest of the world powers.  Germany is suspicious of the many Italian troops massed near Germany's southern border, and prepares troops German diplomats evaluate the situation in Scandinavia, and suggest that annexation is theoretically possible within the next two decades. German becomes a major language spoken in Europe, and as such steps are made to teach German in Scandinavia, while the language becomes promoted in other countries. Germany begins to promote greater co-operation between its former colonies and to integrate them into a German commonwealth for greater economic and political co-operation, while ruling out a federation. Work on miniaturizing thermonuclear weapons continues.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation begins major exploitation of titanium throughout the country and becomes a major producer and begins implementing into many special buildings as well as tanks, armored vehicles and now, rockets. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers setting the price and superceding Saudi Arabia's prominence. The national surplus provided for through large amounts of oil money is placed in diversified accounts as other major sectors of national production are used to cover certain areas. The national surplus is in store to be used in case of another major recession and depression and legislation is put into place protecting it. The Almagro III is minted and used for ICBM's in particular arming them with new warheads. The Federation now nearly has 15,000 Nuclear weapons of various yields and uses. Using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, and with a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway, Computers are now used to make calculations with the space program and other major projects. The Federation space program continues in earnest and an unmaned spacecraft is sent with the express intent of testing long-range capabilities of a craft as well as bring back a lunar sample it is expected to return in (next turn) it is the first of its kind The country also announces it will attempt to reach the moon by the end of the decade. The population of the Federation reaches 156.1 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet and now including Guyana into population figures. The submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations is drilled heavily and a new class able to launch Cruise missiles is completed and five are added to the fleet. The Federation officially fully vassalizes Cuba after nearly a decade of influence and the successful election of Castro to the presidency of Cuba. The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation deploys the Espadas in secret to Colombia right along the Colombian-Venezuelan border and they begin to act like a group of soldiers that were not given their due. Their expert operations record allows for the men to cause utter havoc in rural regions of the country. All identifying marks to the Federation are scrubbed as well, and almost all the men are exclusively Hispanic. The Federation uses Che Guevara as an undercover agent in Colombia beginning to allow him to stage a nationalist and more pro-Federation revolution with backing from the Federation's black ops The Federation also begins to construct its first nuclear powered aircraft carrier - the first of its kind which is around 50% complete.  The Federation also finishes development of a new group of weapon systems with guns of all classes under development as well as for export to allies and special case countries. (They are particularly close to the US OTL M-16, Car-15 SMG, MP5, LAW, and various HMG's and LMG's) and outfits its armed forces with the new weapons turning the previous main service rifle into a LMG. The Federation begins a larger program of more modern air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles which is completed and all associated vehicles designed for these are outfitted. The Federation navy begins phasing out older ships in favor of newer and more efficient ones. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages which allows for a larger cruise missile and better guidance on ICBM's. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is finished with some attack subs being retrofitted or remodeled to fit the weapons. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing.  Infrastructure is upgraded. The Federation begins test drills off the coast of Brazil looking for deposits of oil and is successful the areas are marked for future development. Infrastructure development is continued with mainline highways being completed and their linking up with areas in Colombia continuing.  The Federation continues to send arms to various remaining royalists managing to arm a group loyal to Shahnaz Pahlavi who was not killed. The arms include high tech jets, tanks, arms, munitions, and proxy mercenaries who are able to train the Iranian royalist soldiers in effective warfare. The Federation begins to influence Haiti and the Dominican Republic as well as beginning relations improvement with Colombia. The Federation begins construction of a large scale communications satellite making use of new concepts and engineering to get major sections complete. With a crew of nearly five it's the most ambitious program yet attempting to double as a research station. The costs, usually considered extraordinary, are highly privatized, making business involvement with the government for materials, a cheap streamlined process that allows accelerated construction. The country also builds its first major computer line, while large, and perform decently enough calculations to get work done. The EE-40 main battle tank undergoes an upgrade plan in which its fire control, stability, and vulnerabilities are all refined or upgraded with the new 120mm cannon and improved munition making its way into the field. Seeing profit once again in stealth aircraft, the Federation begins the development of a new stealth aircraft which is finalized and built. Plans for a nuclear submarines are finalized and the ship is nearly completed. The Federation signs a full scale deal with the Congo offering Heavy Industrial equipment, Geologists and large scale investment from Resource companies in which their cut of pay will be a bare minimum to remain profitable in order to promote Pro-Federation relations in the Congo as well as helping the major development of the nation. The Federation openly recognizes the Central African Federation and begins to open up relations with the country. The Federation recalls its two carrier groups from the Persian Gulf and deploy two separate groups to the Central Atlantic near the Canary islands and within a 200 mile patrol area to give off some experience to the fleet. The Federation begins setting up bases in the appropriate areas in Ceylon, Papua, and Subic bay. To Compensate for the amount of Carriers the federation bilds a series of new light carriers are commissioned to be built as well as amphibious assault ships for troops transport. The Federation scientists while researching the possibility of a de-orbiting satellite begin research into kinetic physics from orbit in secret small projects.
    • Peru: Peru maintains its pro-Federation stance and its pro-Unification movement with the Federation continues to grow moderately. The Peruvian military now under advisement from the Federation military as well as jointly occupying bases in Peru begins a large buy of Federation equipment purchasing aircraft, some naval ships and all sorts of equipment. The country's infrastructure is worked on extensively as well. Peru, via the Federation, establishes a line of credit with the royalists in Iran allowing for the Iranians to buy arms, and fund their war on credit.
      • Bolivia: Now fully pro-Federation, the Bolivian government continues previous projects and begins standardizing its military equipment and economy with the Federation. The Infrastructure of the country is also improved, particularly the infrastructure in natural gas. The move is done very well and the Infrastructure for it is completed with natural gas becoming a major export for Bolivia. The country begins to show major population growth with nearly 5.5 million people.
      • Antilles Federation: With Trinidad as the capital area the federation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses Federation assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antilles begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural re-organization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective, the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter-island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the Antilles Islands once held by Germany. Infrastructure is worked on. The new found wealth of the Antilles through cash cropping has left a surplus enough to buy a few modern warships from the Federation. The Antilles Federation continues to develop beginning to become a the island intermittent financial center between North and South America.
      • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica seeks better relations with Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti and begins to allow for major foreign investment from the Federation. Infrastructure is worked on. The Jamaicans begin an arms buildup establishing a respectable light arms arsenal as well as tank killing weaponry. Jamaica begins looking for common unification with Cuba in an attempt to have greater economic power. However, it may end up as a confederation or specialized federation to allow for more autonomy between areas.
      • Cuba: Cuba, coming off elections, officially elects Fidel Castro and he begins a process of major infrastructural, economic and military improvement which is paid for by a various amount of loans, and funds from the national GDP itself. The country itself particularly takes interests in acquisitions of naval ships attempting to be a local naval power the Cubans purchase multiple naval ships from the Federation. Fidel Castro also while a staunch nationalist for Cuba does not force out any foreign business of the US or the Federation but rather invites more wishing to get huge profits coming into the country. Companies in Cuba also advertise the island nation as a tourist haven and he allows open tourism throughout the country. Cuba becomes the air hub for North and South America.
      • Federation Dip: We ask Oceania to allow us a base in Ceylon, and Papua and the Philippines for a base in their country, preferably Subic Bay.
      • Oceanic Dip: We accept a limited base of operations is Ceylon with a more extensive base in the Subic Bay and Papua.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: Computer technology continues to advance with many new companies emerging. Two companies vying for dominance in the tech field are Orion Industries and a newcomer, Dyno Computer Technic. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomon's receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue and begin to see substantial success. Oceania still petitions the UN for membership in the Security Council. After several test runs, Oceania sends a dog and a cat into space. These missions end in success, Oceania plans to launch a man into orbit in the coming year. Computer science advances rapidly due to the plentiful resources. Smaller and smaller devices are coming out of this. Using the rocket technology, the army begins plans to use a modified Ares II rocket to create Oceania's first ICBM's. Oceania grants Singapore more freedom and invests heavily in their industry and finance. Japan and Oceania officially form the Eastern Asian and Oceanic Co Prosperity Pact or the EAOC for short. The EAOC will bring stability to Asia and establish a strong miltary and economic bloc in Asia. Ceylon is heavily fortified with the naval base heavily upgraded and defended. The Oceanic navy commissions a new carrier, the OMS Retribution. The Federation is granted a port in the Philippines and in Ceylon. Oceania proposes Singapore as the headquarters to the EAOC, citing its favourable location and the booming technology and financial centres within the city. Scientists begin to study the field of Kinetic Physics, though at this point it is highly theoretical and marginalised as a "pseudo-science". Nuclear Cruise missiles are placed on Ceylon, with the warheads pointed toward Bharat to ward off any potential aggression. The bulk of the Oceanic navy is re-directed to patrol the Indian Ocean.
  • The USER expands military, economy, and industry. The space program continues under the lead fo Sergei Korolev. The Duma and Supreme Soviet continue to pass reform after reform, greatly increasing the standard of living in the nation. The Luna 2 spacecraft takes images of the far side of the moon. More nuclear technology is built and nuclear energy begins to be used in more power grids. Stealth technology is also built more. Troops are sent to help stabilize the Congo.
  • They didn't request it and it's not covered in any treaty relating the British. It was a French colony and hence, they decide whether it will sink or swim.
  • Bharat: The Agay Badho campaign begins to become a prominent occurence in the average Bharati's life. Due to farmer-friendly fertiliser prices sales have seen a huge boost and to ensure fertilisers can still be produced to demand, many more factories are made to make sure fertiliser demand levels can be met. Tata once more begins to look into his company to see how they are functioning. The Tata Industrial Steel Corportation (TISCO) begins to buy multiple factories and begins to produced refined steel for the nation's industrial needs. Other branches of the Tata Coglomerate too soon begin to grow and Tata establishes the Hindustani Aeronautics Limited, to govern all aerospace matters as well as be responsible for the construction and testing of new aircraft. After multiple tests with the "Incan soil", the results are in and they are definitive. The soil has indeed led to increased yields of around 150% and with this, the government is sure that if this is implemented too in farms, yields would increase so much that food problems of the nation could disappear and it could possibly feed as much as three times as many people as before. The knowlegde for this will be sent to farmers by messengers in the next economic double-quarter. The construction of wells as well as holes to let run-off from rain drain back into the ground water reserves are beginning to prove beneficial with the tme spent on collecting water beginning to heavily decline. Hundreds of thousands of reservoirs, ranging from small to the size of a large metropolitan metropolis continue to be constructed and rebuilt all around the nation. Dam projects are also underway at full speed. The total completion of all these projects are slated for 1970, by which time it is hoped Bharat will be using the water very efficiently. Bharati engineers play a huge part in these developments, leading the projects themselves and racing to complete the projects using the best materials, most efficient workforce and the most cost-effective parts. In a bid to increase engineer numbers, Tata opens many new engineering universities for the population. However, Sen and Tata both realise that for the nation to move forward, education is a must and so state schools all around the antion begin to be built at a great pace to help educate the nation. As well as this, a sylllabus begins to be designed for the children. It is decided that Hindi will be the language taught in schools all around the nation, with English becoming compulsary in 6th grade. The government will not be putting regional languages into the syllabus but it does not condemn parents teaching their language to their children at home. Hundreds of iron-mines and natural gas deposits as well as minerals and the element thorium is found. Using Federation credit, work begins rapidly in constructing mines, refinaries, industry and that sort of stuff. Multiple construction sites are present at any one time all around deposits of natural reserves. Looking to expand Bharati influence and claim, the nation is hard at work on the diplomatic scene. The conservatives of Nepal still feel they require more to completely align with Bharat and so the government begins to fund road cnstruction and tunnel boring projects all around Nepal to help increase connectivity for the nation. Sikkim, on the other hand, has been appeased and the nation officially becomes a vassal of Bharat. Exploitation of Nepali deposits also begins but not on a large scale as other projects are using funding heavily. Almost no propaganda is dropped over Nepal at all, seeing the new trading deals signed and the arrival of a few capable engineers to train their Nepali counter-parts as well as oversee the new economic projects beginning in the nation. The engineers bring with them their love of Cricket and informally begin to also coach a few children to help them learn the sport better. The huge slave labour workforce is hard at work all around the nation, with death rates abysmally high. However, where there is a need for better workers, normal workers are used. These workers also receive a bit of on-sight training so they do their job efficiently. Minimum wage has taken effect and it is helping many workers get basic necessities being met for the Hindu workers. The Special Reserved Zone (Balochistan) sees a skyrocketing of the population. Thousands of small irrigation projects continue to be built in the SRZ with a few major ones being work on alongside. In more regions starvation is beginning to set in and more irrigation projects continue. Many begin to look to the sea to try to derive sea-water into normal driking water somehow. They begin to think of glass contraptions where water will be pumped in as when the water is heated it will travel as vapour in steam form underground where it will end up cooling. In the "Hindu hearland", huge industrial projects continue as the workers are forced to work hard and fast to get the projects completed quickly. The construction of the docks continue in the major port regions of the nation. It is expected to take a few years. Construction for the new airport at Ulway continues. The construction is expected to be completed in three more years. The construction pf the first skyscrapers, some 75-story buildings, begins in a region called Nerul. The Greater Bombay and Hyderabad regions see more factories being constructed. The whole Bengali region does not focus on new factory construction, instead focusing on upgrading infrastructure and planting new trees where old ones have been cut down. The greater Delhi and United Provinces regions are also seeing a huge increase in factory numbers. These are mainly where the tanks and aircraft as well as ammunition and guns are being churned out for the rapidly expanding armed forces (in term of equipment). The new tank, Pancher V is unvield to the army and the rest of the world. Having a 125mm main gun, and having a decent amount of armament, it can run at speeds of up to 60 km/h. The army is impressed and quickly orders the production of these battletanks for the army. This is better than what the Oceanians have. Scientists and engineers continue to replicate blueprints and look to upgrade the size and equipment of the ships on paper as well as those serving in the fleet. Work with the Japanese on new aircraft designs begins and work is quick. Burmese workers are hard at work building industrial factories and railroads to connect population centres and boost trading in the east. Also, most of the Burmese workers are scattered around the nation, leaving huge vacant spaces for farmlands and the large need for agricultural workers. The huge new influx of settlers has lead to the easing of population in many areas in the north while a large gain in Burma itself. The growth rate of investment skyrockets and Tata takes all of his profits and puts it back into the system - currently living off his government salary. However, a lot of the funds are still being drained into the import of coal and other metals as Bharat is still building a base to exploit its own resources, but slowly but surely the nation is getting there. Surya Sen, as Premier and Tata, as Chancellor of Bharat have a very successful run so far. Bharat continues to use its own businessmen to begin funding nations in Africa such as Ethiopia and Nigeria, where hundreds of businessmen head to so they can start new businesses. They also head to Kenya in great numbers, where there is already a large population of Indian descendants. However, not many peasants emigrate to these nations as they do not have the money to do so or are looking to take the new land opportunities around Bharat itself. The nation continues to upgrade their army and navy significantly, with the first research into computer projects beginning and computers finally beginning to run and be tested. In Trombay, the first nuclear reactors are started up and start to breed more fissile materials from the current amounts of Uranium in Bharat. The nuclear bomb is readied by the military researchers for testing. The nation continues to fund the current Somali government to keep order over its nation and will withdraw aid when they feel the nation is stable. The government begins to fully support the "true" Congo and the nation is invested in and given support from the Bharatis who are willing to invest in their resource exploitation programs, offering to help them with the machinery Bharat itself begins to use as soon as they have been constructed and put to use. Investment in Nigeria also begins to be increased as the Bharati government looks to invest money in foreign nations. It is also put in Kenya where a large number of Indian descendant use the money to expand their businesses. Toward the end of the year, the nation tests its own nuclear bomb in the deserts of Rajahstan, telling Oceania to "bring it on". The navy releases its aircraft carriers after its refit and it is fully equiped with aircraft, protected by destroyers and battleships. They also begin to fund Tamilian groups in Lanka to begin to attack Oceanic troops so they can eventually join their Tamilian brothers on mainland India in the future.
  • French Union: Recruitment drives continue across all of the French Union for the Air Force, and the new model jets, bombers, transport aircraft, and helicopters continue to be manufactured in large numbers. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups enter the South Atlantic, joining the two already there. The carrier groups in the Atlantic remained stationed off the coast of Portugal, with one patrolling the waters nearby the Azores, and one patrolling the waters near Madeira. The other four carrier groups remain off the coast of the Portuguese mainland. All of the carrier groups secretly continue to prepare amphibious landing groups, along with marking targets for aircraft in the nearby area. A number of paramilitary groups begin to be set up in Portugal with secret French funding and military training, all of which are Pro-French and Pro-'Free European'. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. It is estimated that by 1965 the African areas of the French Union will be equal to the French mainland in terms of economic prominence. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. A rocket is launched into space carrying a four man crew, and remains there for two weeks, seen as a significant step to a possible Moon landing. A small unnamed probe lands on the surface of the Moon, and sends important technical data back to FSA Command. Project 'Blue Spear' rockets continue to be mass produced, with over six hundred 'Blue Spear' rockets in the French arsenal, making it one of the most powerful nuclear arsenals on the planet.
    • Kingdom of Great Britain: Both Elizabeth II and Winston Churchill give more speeches preaching Pro-French and Pro-'Free European' ideals, as well as continuing their full support for a federation of free and democratic European states. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. French troops continue to hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils and hygienic materials. A larger majority of the population accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and more begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Greenland, and Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Kingdom of Great Britain, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.

    • Union of European Microstates: The Union government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Kingdom of Great Britain, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Belgium: The Belgian government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. French arms, as well as industrial equipment, continue to be shipped to Belgium from France in an attempt to improve the Belgian military, as well as the economy. Ties continues to deepen with the Kingdom of Great Britain, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and Greenland as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Greenland: The Greenlander government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' views. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and the Kingdom of Great Britain, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.

1962.0

Congo-Brazaville continues suffering but manages to stabilize some areas after existing government reached an agreement with opposition forces narrowly avoiding a civil war and establishing a coalition government.

The various successful moon missions (unmanned) in which the Soviets took pictures and the federation brought back the first lunar samples promise that a less hostile and more co-operative chance can be undertaken with the various powers with space exploration.

The CAF begins to continuously spool off propaganda for seizing Congo-Brazavilla and Gabon. 

Colombia begins to draw closer economically to the Federation officially ending some of the worst tension in the Americas to date.

I was going to be posting my last turn within the hour, so if any mod events relating to me will be made, I hope you can take into account the post first. Thanks. ~Imp

(Entering Luther Mode) Y'ALL RUSSIAN MOTHER EFFERS BETTER GET YO SHIT TOGETHER AND MAKE AN ALGO IF Y'ALL WANNA GO INVADE CENTRAL AFRICA! ~G

it wasn't an invasion,apparently. It was to help with the civil war ... but that's France's department, and considering Scraw has done no naval buildup prior to this ... yeah -Feud

^ AND BTW, WHEN I SAID RUSSIAN MOTHER EFFERS, I AM TALKING TO YOU, SCRAWLAND, YOU HALF ASSED EXCUSE FOR A MODERATOR! ~Guns (Leaving Luther Mode)

I'm not sending anything to Congo. Get your head out of your ass. ~S

"Troops are sent to help stabilize the Congo."  Umm, yeah ... ~Guns


  • Oceanic Commonwealth: Computer technology continues to advance with many new companies emerging. Two companies vying for dominance in the tech field are Orion Industries and a newcomer, Dyno Computer Technic. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there.

Scientists begin to study the field of Kinetic Physics, though at this point it is highly theoretical and marginalised as a "pseudo-science". (These scientists, after receiving little funding, begin seeking investment from the Federation to study this event).  Nuclear Cruise missiles are placed on Ceylon, with the warheads pointed toward Bharat to ward off any potential aggression. The bulk of the Oceanic navy is re-directed to patrol the Indian Ocean. The nation continues its nuclear programme, now in high gear and signficantly further along than the Bharatis. ICBM's are now being targeted at the nation. The media has begun to the heavy military buildup between the two nations as the "Cold War". President Smith, releases a press statement, " The Oceanic Commonwealth does not wish any ill will to neighbouring nations, the unwarranted aggression of the Bharatis is neither justified nor proper. We will not be bullied into giving in our lands and our freedom, which we have worked so hard to achieve. I as President, request that I meet with the Bharati leadership to discuss exactly what it is they want, and to attempt a peaceful resolution to what, I fear, may be a looming conflict." The military intercepts plans that fund troops in Lanka. realizing that the situation could result in full war if not handled delicately, the Army and the General Assembly of Oceania decides to allow more representation in government and begin to lower taxes in the region. Propaganda and humanitarian events are begun. The military brass feels that the people will more willingly follow a voice of peace and of reason, than of violence and conflict. The Army has unvieled the Montgomery Mark II with 125mm cannon and a massive increase in armour through titanium, the Mark II, is the fastest tank in the Oceania and perhaps, Asia. The tanks are also fitted with on board computers for the first time. Several breakthroughs in the feild of computer science have made a noticable impact on technology. The Eastern Asian and Oceanic Co-prosperity Pact, formally settles in a brand new high rise in the booming ctiy of Singapore. The Oceanic and Japanese navies begin runnig war game simulations. The miltary readiness level of the two nation is requested to increase in the light of the unwarranted aggression to the East.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation begins major exploitation of titanium throughout the country and becomes a major producer and begins implementing into many special buildings as well as tanks, armored vehicles and now, rockets. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers setting the price and superceding Saudi Arabia's prominence. The national surplus provided for through large amounts of oil money is placed in diversified accounts as other major sectors of national production are used to cover certain areas. The national surplus is in store to be used in case of another major recession and depression and legislation is put into place protecting it. The Almagro III is minted and used for ICBM's in particular arming them with new warheads. The Federation now nearly has 15,000 Nuclear weapons of various yields and uses. Using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, and with a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway, Computers are now used to make calculations with the space program and other major projects. The Federation space program continues with men being sent halfway to the moon and back to test the living arangements. The special module returns and is a total success. The country also announces it will attempt to reach the moon by the end of the decade. The population of the Federation reaches 156.1 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet and now including Guyana into population figures. The submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations is drilled heavily and a new class able to launch Cruise missiles is completed and five are added to the fleet. The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation also begins to construct its first nuclear powered aircraft carrier - the first of its kind which is completed and is able to hold a total of 90 aircraft and about 60 to 70 normally.  The Federation navy begins phasing out older ships in favor of newer and more efficient ones. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages which allows for a larger cruise missile and better guidance on ICBM's. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is finished with some attack subs being retrofitted or remodeled to fit the weapons. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing.  Infrastructure is upgraded. The Federation begins test drills off the coast of Brazil looking for deposits of oil and is successful the areas are marked for future development. Infrastructure development is continued with mainline highways being completed and their linking up with areas in Colombia continuing.  The Federation continues to send arms to various remaining royalists managing to arm a group loyal to Shahnaz Pahlavi who was not killed. The arms include high tech jets, tanks, arms, munitions, and proxy mercenaries who are able to train the Iranian royalist soldiers in effective warfare. The Federation begins to influence Haiti and the Dominican Republic as well as beginning relations improvement with Colombia.

Seeing profit once again in stealth aircraft, the Federation begins the development of a new stealth aircraft which is finalized and built. Plans for a nuclear submarines are finalized and the ship is nearly completed. The Federation signs a full scale deal with the Congo offering Heavy Industrial equipment, Geologists and large scale investment from Resource companies in which their cut of pay will be a bare minimum to remain profitable in order to promote Pro-Federation relations in the Congo as well as helping the major development of the nation. The Federation openly recognizes the Central African Federation and begins to open up relations with the country. The Federation recalls its two carrier groups from the Canaries. The Federation begins setting up bases in the appropriate areas in Ceylon, Papua, and Subic bay. Due to previous plans nearly four light carriers of the new Salta class carrier are completed. Two of these carriers are deployed with destroyer and frigate escorts to the Ceylon base along with nearly 25,000 marines. The New troop carriers are mostly completed as well. The Ceylon base is also expanded into a Naval air station and is walled rather than fenced for defence. The Decision is made and over the next ten years the Federation will replace all fleet carriers with new Supercarriers of the Lusitania class. The Federation announces to the world of the results of its most recent elections (i forgot in 1960) that President Almagro was barely beaten by the new President Ronaldo Vargas (no relation to Getulio Vargas). The Federation as per the agreement with Saudi Arabia begins the large set up of a Huge naval base and naval air station in Al-Jubail  putting various top of the line fighters at the newly constructed Simón Bolivar Naval Air Base directly adjacent to the Direct military port facilities. The Fleet Carrier Getulio Vargas and its Battle fleet are expected to be sent to the area as the local Federation Fleet.
    • Peru: Peru maintains its pro-Federation stance and its pro-Unification movement with the Federation continues to grow moderately. The Peruvian military now under advisement from the Federation military as well as jointly occupying bases in Peru begins a large buy of Federation equipment purchasing aircraft, some naval ships and all sorts of equipment. The country's infrastructure is worked on extensively as well. Peru, via the Federation, establishes a line of credit with the royalists in Iran allowing for the Iranians to buy arms, and fund their war on credit.
    • Bolivia: Now fully pro-Federation, the Bolivian government continues previous projects and begins standardizing its military equipment and economy with the Federation. The Infrastructure of the country is also improved, particularly the infrastructure in natural gas. The move is done very well and the Infrastructure for it is completed with natural gas becoming a major export for Bolivia. The country begins to show major population growth with nearly 5.5 million people.
    • Antilles Federation: With Trinidad as the capital area the federation begins to take in foreign investment to replace British companies and uses Federaton assistance to hold the former British Antilles regions. The Antilles Confederation also begins movements toward greater unity forming a Federation between the islands. The Antilles begins to heavily export cash crops such as sugar and coffee taking over much of the economic slack left following most of South America's agricultural re-organization. This has left the Confederation with a large ability to overhaul certain areas and work on centralization. Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective, the New Central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter-island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the Antilles Islands once held by Germany. Infrastructure is worked on. The new found wealth of the Antilles through cash cropping has left a surplus enough to buy a few modern warships from the Federation. The Antilles Federation continues to develop beginning to become a the island intermittent financial center between North and South America.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country. Jamaica seeks better relations with Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti and begins to allow for major foreign investment from the Federation. Infrastructure is worked on. The Jamaicans begin an arms buildup establishing a respectable light arms arsenal as well as tank killing weaponry. Jamaica begins looking for common unification with Cuba in an attempt to have greater economic power. However, it may end up as a confederation or specialized federation to allow for more autonomy between areas.
    • Cuba: Cuba, coming off elections, officially elects Fidel Castro and he begins a process of major infrastructural, economic and military improvement which is paid for by a various amount of loans, and funds from the national GDP itself. The country itself particularly takes interests in acquisitions of naval ships attempting to be a local naval power the Cubans purchase multiple naval ships from the Federation. Fidel Castro also while a staunch nationalist for Cuba does not force out any foreign business of the US or the Federation but rather invites more wishing to get huge profits coming into the country. Companies in Cuba also advertise the island nation as a tourist haven and he allows open tourism throughout the country. Cuba becomes the air hub for North and South America.
  • Saudi Arabia: Influence on Qatar and the UAE continues. The ASF merged military is expanded, now including Iraq and Egypt. Industry and infrastructure is worked on across the Saudi Bloc. Work on our first A-bomb continues. Production of military aircraft and ships slow down, but continues nonetheless. Land reforms continue and votes on the religious equality laws pass in Egypt and Iraq. Rise of total union ideas continue in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Kuwait. We begin to send aid to the remaining royalists in Iran in secret, and we secretly ask the Federation to do the same. (I wouldn't know that you are in-game.)
    • Federation Secret Dip: We agree, considering we're already doing the same thing. We also ask if we can have a base along the Persian Gulf side of Arabia. We wish to have a light carrier group and some marines with the possibility for a naval air station (for joint use of course). This is just a suggestion.
    • Saudi Arabia agrees.
      • Egypt: Military, industry and infrastructure improve. We ask that foreign nations invest in Egyptian companies in order to expand our economy. Rebuilding continues in Egypt. Aid is sent to Iranian royalists in secret.
  • Scandinavia: The old Pro-Freedom of the People terrorist group in Iceland and Greenland in WWII is secretly resurrected in Greenland.
    • Is this allowed to be done to a player owned state? As I haven't done anything to warrant the revival of a terrorist group in Greenland. It is quite the opposite, with Greenland being an extremely happy and a successful state interlinked with the rest of the French administered lands. Hailstormer (talk) 20:47, January 27, 2014 (UTC)
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues. The army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts at influencing South Kurdistan.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Italy: We continue to build up our military. The economy expands due to our oil being exported to the world. After being up in space for six months our rocket finally comes down. Scientists look at the photos the rocket took. They are fascinated by the photos. Lots of people wonder what is up there in space. Some people think there are aliens in space. Alien merchandise is becoming popular. Movies about aliens are also becoming popular.
    • Libya: Military is built up. The navy improves their ports to fit more ships. The large plantation of our country are growing more food.
    • Tunisia: Trading increases with the French colonies of Africa. More factories are being built to make more stuff.
  • Germany: German troops continue to be re-deployed to the homeland. Small contingents of troops are still present in former German colonies to ensure that they are stable, independent and that their armed forces are well trained. Improvements continue to take place on German tanks, jets and missiles. New designs for such vehicles are made and enter production. More A10 rockets are outfitted with downsized nuclear warheads. All of these rockets are located in Europe at the moment. To further enhance the nuclear capabilities of the Reich, work begins on nuclear-capable submarines as well as miniaturized nuclear missiles for jets. More research on the space program continues. The High Command does not see the tactical value of such space exploration, but supports remaining more or less on the same level as the rest of the world powers.  Germany is suspicious of the many Italian troops massed near Germany's southern border, and prepares troops German diplomats evaluate the situation in Scandinavia, and suggest that annexation is theoretically possible within the next two decades. German becomes a major language spoken in Europe, and as such steps are made to teach German in Scandinavia, while the language becomes promoted in other countries. Germany begins to promote greater co-operation between its former colonies and to integrate them into a German commonwealth for greater economic and political co-operation, while ruling out a federation. Work on miniaturizing thermonuclear weapons continues.At the request of India, missile designs are sent there. Germany begins to lean on other Axis nations who have yet to decolonize, suggesting to them that they have bigger issues to deal with in Europe. Fortifications are built up across Germany in a nation-wide renovation project. More people are launched into space.
    • Czechoslovakia: The national government decides to divide the country into Bohemia-Moravia and Slovakia. Slovakia decides to remain a republic, while Bohemia-Moravia decides to become a monarchy.
    • Yugoslavia: Military buildup continues. In the face of Italian buildup, both the aircraft carrier and the battleship are completed and launched.
      • Bharati Diplomacy: stating the long-term alliance between the two powers, Bharat requests ICBM bluebrints and in return we will offer the Germans the opportunity to invest in reserved sectors of our economy. They are also interested in working with the Germans on the nuclear front.
      • German Diplomacy: Done.
      • Bharati Diplomacy: Bharat in exchange shares some of its classified information and ideas with the Germans to get their opinion on stuff and well as try to return the favour.
  • Switzerland: We continue to modernize, adding ski lifts to resorts, building more highways, and improving public transportation. A vote is taken on the position of the government and military. We build up our coastal defenses, and enlarge our port.
  • Bharat: With the aid of the long-allies Germany, the first ICBM is built and tested in June. The testing is a resounding success and with more nuclear tests, the nation begins to build its first nuclear-tipped ICBMs. Using the Adaman and Nicobar islands as a base, the nation hopes to be able to launch its nukes deep into the population heartlands (which is most definitely toward the north) and damage the ability of the enemy to gather more troops. Meanwhile, the nuclear reactors begin to work at greater efficiency with Federation and German uranium helping to power peaceful research into nuclear power. It is hoped eventually it will be able to produce huge amounts of electricity using this method. Seeing the Oceanians trying to counter the Pancher V, a new variant with a bigger and more efficient engine is put in - increasing range and speed at the same time. It has become the best tank in the region and the tank is suited to a multitude of operations in different climates. The production of these tanks have begun and large batches are expected to be delivered to the army soon. Propoganga to the Tamils in the north of Lanka continues to get them to support the Bharatis and their Tamil kin in Bharat. Reservoir projects along with irrigation construction continues at full speed and the nation begins to see growth on levels never seen before. In the last economic quartile, the nation saw a record 16% growth. The money earned from this growth is pumped back into the system - into infrastructure, R&D and factory construction. The mining of resources continue and the population begins to increase at rapid levels once more due to stable conditions and a booming economy. The nation continues its bids to increase influence, too, and sends support to the Shah in monetary form. They are also willing to help out as they have tanks which can enter from the border and push back rebels.
  • French Union: Recruitment drives continue across all of the French Union for the Air Force, and the new model jets, bombers, transport aircraft, and helicopters continue to be manufactured in large numbers. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups enter the South Atlantic, joining the four already there. The carrier groups in the Atlantic remained stationed off the coast of Portugal, with one patrolling the waters nearby the Azores, and one patrolling the waters near Madeira. The other four carrier groups remain off the coast of the Portuguese mainland. All of the carrier groups secretly continue to prepare amphibious landing groups, along with marking targets for aircraft in the nearby area. The paramilitary groups continue to be trained and funded secretly by the French, making them more Pro-French and Pro-'Free European'. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. It is estimated that by 1965 the African areas of the French Union will be equal to the French mainland in terms of economic prominence. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. A rocket is launched into space carrying a four man crew, and remains there for four weeks, seen as a significant step to a possible Moon landing. Another small unmanned probe lands on the surface of the Moon, and sends important technical data back to FSA Command. Project 'Blue Spear' rockets continue to be mass produced, with over seven hundred 'Blue Spear' rockets in the French arsenal. Making it one of the most powerful nuclear arsenals on the planet.
    • Kingdom of Great Britain: Both Elizabeth II and Winston Churchill give more speeches preaching Pro-French and Pro-'Free European' ideals, as well as continuing their full support for a federation of free and democratic European states. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. French troops continue to hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils and hygienic materials. A larger majority of the population accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and more begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Greenland, and Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Kingdom of Great Britain, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Union of European Microstates: The Union government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Kingdom of Great Britain, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Belgium: The Belgian government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. French arms, as well as industrial equipment, continue to be shipped to Belgium from France in an attempt to improve the Belgian military, as well as the economy. Ties continues to deepen with the Kingdom of Great Britain, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and Greenland as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Greenland: The Greenlander government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' views. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and the Kingdom of Great Britain, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.

1962.5

The United States officially unveils its own nuclear aircraft carrier the USS Enterprise and in a show of economic prosperity and advancement brings the spread of its economy further throughout the capitalist countries of the world.

Major proponents of a nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty begin to pop up in most countries that are showing signs of nuclear development/have already developed nuclear weapons.

In complete surprise the nations of Congo and the Central African Federation both begin to show notable economic improvement and show their first fully fledged democratic elections. The Central African Federation also tones down its previously hostile rhetoric in exchange for access to the port cities for trade through Congo-Brazaville envigorating both economies and preventing a civil war in Congo-Brazaville.

How and why? There had better be good explanations for this.
In exchange for toned down rhetoric and the collective advancement of all involved parties the CAF is allowed free passage and most like low or non consequential taxes on product for the outgoing sea trade. In exchange, involved parties all get better relations, better economies and have to go to war to be successful. Also, with Congo-Brazaville, one of the main issues was lack of economic advancement ... this provides it and prevents civil war.

The local governor of Sri Lanka, a Sinhalese man, makes a speech pertaining to a Sri Lanka's majority ethnic being unconsidered in the growing escalations in the area and makes several statements mentioning that the Island is Sinhalese not Tamil. This causes public protests but due to the huge military presence no major rioting occurs.

A new wave of protests rolls over major North and South American powers growing out of peace, love, prosperity and evironmental protection. The Hippie movement is seen mostly in young men and is highly biased against war to solve issues.

The United States has not fought a war in nearly ten years. Seriously, without Korea or Vietnam the counterculture movement will not exist as we know it.

  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues. The army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts at influencing South Kurdistan.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation begins major exploitation of titanium throughout the country and becomes a major producer and begins implementing into many special buildings as well as tanks, armored vehicles and now, rockets. The Federation becomes one of the world's top oil producers setting the price and superceding Saudi Arabia's prominence. The national surplus provided for through large amounts of oil money is placed in diversified accounts as other major sectors of national production are used to cover certain areas. The national surplus is in store to be used in case of another major recession and depression and legislation is put into place protecting it. The Almagro III is minted and used for ICBM's in particular arming them with new warheads. The Federation now nearly has 25,000 nuclear weapons of various yields and uses. Using the program as a major excuse to invest heavily into computers, and with a large deal of rare earth elements being offered by the Oceanian Commonwealth, the research into smaller computers or more manageable ones begins and makes major headway, Computers are now used to make calculations with the space program and other major projects. The Federation Space program continues following the successful half journey to the moon. In short order the Federation launches its first semi-permanent satellite used to test communication. It's also outfitted to be positioned at a Lagrange point to aid in faster and better communication with any attempt at landing on the moon.  The country also announces it will attempt to reach the moon by the end of the decade. The population of the Federation reaches 156.1 million and growing showing some of the most expansive population growth on the planet and now including Guyana into population figures. The submarine force at nearly 70 with about 12 others specialized for special forces and spy operations is drilled heavily and a new class able to launch Cruise missiles is completed and five are added to the fleet. The Federation continues to send support to Angola supporting democratic nationalist elements. The Federation also begins to construct its first nuclear powered aircraft carrier - the first of its kind which is completed and is able to hold a total of 90 Aircraft and about 60 to 70 normally.  The Federation navy begins phasing out older ships in favor of newer and more efficient ones. The development of anti-air and anti-ground missiles is complete with the guidance packages which allows for a larger cruise missile and better guidance on ICBM's. The Cruise missiles are also streamlined as well and the first prototype of a ballistic/guided missile sub is finished with some attack subs being retrofitted or remodeled to fit the weapons. The miniaturization of warheads is complete and a mock warhead is mounted on a large scale rocket for testing.  Infrastructure is upgraded. The Federation begins test drills off the coast of Brazil looking for deposits of oil and is successful the areas are marked for future development. Infrastructure development is continued with mainline highways being completed and their linking up with areas in Colombia continuing.  The Federation continues to send arms to various remaining royalists managing to arm a group loyal to Shahnaz Pahlavi who was not killed. The arms include high tech jets, tanks, arms, munitions, and proxy mercenaries who are able to train the Iranian royalist soldiers in effective warfare. The Federation begins to influence Haiti and the Dominican Republic as well as beginning relations improvement with Colombia. The Federation begins construction of a large scale communications satellite making use of new concepts and engineering to get major sections complete. With a crew of nearly five it's the most ambitious program yet attempting to double as a research station. The costs, usually considered extraordinary, are highly privatized, making business involvement with the government for materials, a cheap streamlined process that allows accelerated construction. The country also builds its first major computer line, while large, and perform decently enough calculations to get work done. The EE-40 main battle tank undergoes an upgrade plan in which its fire control, stability, and vulnerabilities are all refined or upgraded with the new 120mm cannon and improved munition making its way into the field being able to outshoot the 125mm counterparts using new Highly advanced fin stabilized SABOT rounds. Seeing profit once again in stealth aircraft, the Federation begins the development of a new stealth aircraft which is finalized and built This comes into two iterations, a Large Stealth Bomber and an advanced Stealth Fighter only known as the X-18. Plans for a nuclear submarines are finalized and the ship is nearly completed. The Country officially announces its wide scale Neutrality in wider International conflict only getting involved on moral grounds such as genocide, attempted nuking, and unjustified war as well. While still a member of the Axis the Federation will be much more open wider foreign relations. Maintaining a new amount of overseas bases and the need to phase out old carrers begins the carrier fleet project with supercarriers being built to replace the older Fleet carriers with the whole Main carrier force being replaced with the Lusitania Class by 1969. The Federation agrees that it will help maintain order on Ceylon, and urges India and Oceania to hold off on any conflict and recognize that the majority population of Sri Lanka is not Tamil, and is also not European and hence both claims to the island are moot and the status of the island is total circumstance and hence neither side should fight over an island that is total circumstance. All three special forces branches are secretly deployed in Ceylon as well as a large contingent of the Espadas being deployed to the new base in the Persian Gulf. The Federation's nuclear forces are put in a state of semi-alertness. The Federation Navy deploys a few extra battlegroups to the Indian Ocean consisting of a few modernized battleships and their cruiser destroyer and frigate escorts. The Federation also sends the two nuclear submarines carrying the first sub-based nuclear weapons to the Central Atlantic and the South Pacific testing crews on their long term as well as for tests. The country tests its ICBM's showing efficient and a large area of effect with the weapons.
    • Peru: Peru maintains its pro-Federation stance and its pro-Unification movement with the Federation continues to grow moderately. The Peruvian military - now under advisement from the Federation military as well as jointly occupying bases in Peru - begins a large buy of Federation equipment purchasing aircraft, some naval ships and all sorts of equipment. The country's infrastructure is worked on extensively as well. Peru, via the Federation, establishes a line of credit with the royalists in Iran allowing for the Iranians to buy arms, and fund their war on credit.

Unable to create a reliable highway or bridge system that would be cost effective, the new central government invest heavily in a fleet of speedy and slow ferries working as commuting to certain islands eaiser as well as extremely affordable inter-island air travel. The Antilles Confederation takes control of the Antilles Islands once held by Germany. Infrastructure is worked on. The new found wealth of the Antilles through cash cropping has left a surplus enough to buy a few modern warships from the Federation. The Antilles Federation continues to develop beginning to become a the island intermittent financial center between North and South America.
    • Jamaica: The country's sugar-driven economy continues seeking out large foreign investment. The country itself re-establishes a small police force and treats any remaining British citizens in the area relatively well. The country takes a loan from Uruguay's superb banking system undergoing a project to modernize and build up the country.

Companies in Cuba also advertise the island nation as a tourist haven and he allows open tourism throughout the country. Cuba becomes the air hub for North and South America. The Cuban infrastructure is improved greatly.
  • Saudi Arabia: Influence on Qatar and the UAE continues. More aid is Sent to the royalists in Iran. Industry and Infrastructure improve. Military expansion continues, as does work on the Medina-1 and our first A-bomb. Other research contniues as normal, with the exception that we build our first tank and begin testing it. Rise of total union ideas continue in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Yemen, and early talks to unite the countries begin. The king is against union, however, and his advisors can not convince him otherwise, it seems. Land reforms continue, with dependency on foreign food dropping slightly. Birth rates remain high, and the population hits 5.3 million. (I've been developing for a while and I think I should be a plus 2 for industrial strength)
  • Bfoxius, player of Spain retires from the game due to inactivity and not enough time to play. Sorry 'bout that.
  • Italy: We continue to build up our military. The economy expands due to our oil being exported to the world. A new training method is made to train our troops. Our navy builds more aircraft carriers, battleships and subs. Our nuclear program copies the design of the nukes given to us by the French, to make more for use later on. The space program is training a group of six people to get ready for the first space mission by a human.
    • Libya: Military is built up. The navy improves their ports to fit more ships. The large plantations of our country are growing more food.
    • Tunisia: Trading increases with the French colonies of Africa. More factories are being built to make more stuff.
  • Bharat: The nation has multiple ICBM rockets constructed and tested. They all seem to suggest that the thing in reality will work as most of the tests have been successful. However, there have been multiple failures due to reasons such as getting the intermix of fuels wrong and the firing of the rockets at the wrong time. Work continues to solve these issues. The Adaman and Nicobar islands begin to be turned into a military base as large resources are allocated to make them into a fortified military base which will allow the Bharatis a greater range of operations. Meanwhile, the nuclear reactors continue to work at greater efficiency with Federation and German uranium helping to power peaceful research into nuclear power. This is helping electrical studies and plans are made to begin the production of energy from these reactors soon. Some fissile material is also taken to be made into nuclear bombs for the nation which is beginning its rapid increase in the production of the nuclear bomb. The Pancher V sees huge production as the Pancher I and Pancher II look to be completely phased out of production as well as the army. The tanks will be used to test the target ranges of the new tanks. Work on making better variants of the Pancher V begin and new materials for its armour begins to be secretly tested. The Bharatis send a personal apology to the governer, stating they were unsure of his intentions. The Bharati government tell him it would be beneficial for the Singali population to unite with Bharat as the state can provide free transport to Bodh Gaya, the site where Buddha found enlightenment. They also promise to keep tensions calm and offer the governer huge investments in the Singali parts of Lanka if he accepts to join Bharat. The Tamils of Lanka get angry with this but Bharat assures them they will see greater peace due to the fact they will not have to fight with the Singali on issues to do with governance and they will be with their Tamil kin. Large investments in the Tamil zone are also promised by the government. Funding now begins to be sent to the Singalese, too, to try to create trouble for Oceania and also capture many of their ICBMs on the island. To help the Tamils and Singali, Bharati Tamils are sent in, but everything relating to them being Bharatis is purged and they are given Lankan citizenship papers. They enter through official and illegal means. Reservoir projects along with irrigation construction continues at full speed and the nation begins to see growth on levels never seen before. Growth in double figures continues and plans are made to touch 20%. The money earned from this growth is pumped back into the system - into infrastructure, R&D and factory construction. The mining of resources continue and the population begins to increase at rapid levels once more due to stable conditions and a booming economy. The nation continues its bids to increase influence, too, and sends support to the Shah in monetary form. They are also willing to help out as they have tanks which can enter from the border and push back rebels. They also continue to fund Nepali infrastructure while helping to increase connectivity in Sikkim. Not only this, they begin to sign deals with the Afghanis, looking to invest in their natural resource seeking projects. The nation continues to work on other major social projects such as school building, too.
    • You can't just capture ICBM's like that. This is someone who can reach you from a multitude of locations. All ICBM's have standard security and can not be used. Without proper codes or authorization, otherwise, the warhead is useless. That entire part was relatively unneeded and counterproductive. You also have done zero influence on Afghanistan to be able to stay you've made inroads into investing in Afghani anything.
    • I am not investing. I am looking to invest. Big difference.
  • Angola (Formerly the Angolan Nationalists): The constitutional assembly broke down when the MPLA-UNITA rivalry was re-ignited. The MPLA regroups to the northern part of the country, and establishes their headquarters in Luanda. The UNITA, being purged from the fleld to the south and made a new government in Lobito. Civil War was looming. (Something of an OTL Korea-like scenario)
  • Could you not?
  • The USER expands military, infrastructure and economy. The space program continues to do stuff. The Artemis 7 is launched, demonstrating the success of the command module. The Soyuz mission successfully completes a spacewalk crew transfer. Zhukov declares that the USER is the world leader in space stuff. Three new SSRs are created, raising the count to 33. A contest for a new flag design is opened, with all Soviets welcome to participate. De-Stalinization continues and Stalingrad is renamed Volgograd.
  • Switzerland: We continue economic improvement, and increasing security ties with France. We begin to look into constructing several corvettes to boost our naval defense. The hospital ship is manned and prepared to depart to Angola if need be. We offer to host talks between Bharat and the Commonwealth of Oceania.
    • ​Oceanic D: I fear that talks would be useless. The unreasonable Bharatis are forcing our hand with their militant and barbaric actions. If they do not cease and desist, there will be war.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: Computer technology continues to advance with many new companies emerging. Two companies vying for dominance in the tech field are Orion Industries and a newcomer, Dyno Computer Technic. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue and begin to see substantial success. Oceania still petitions the UN for membership in the Security Council. After several test runs, Oceania sends a dog and a cat into space. These missions end in success, Oceania plans to launch a man into orbit in the coming year. Computer science advances rapidly due to the plentiful resources. Smaller and smaller devices are coming out of this. Using the rocket technology, the army begins plans to use a modified Ares II rocket to create Oceania's first ICBM's. Oceania grants Singapore more freedom and invests heavily in their industry and finance. Japan and Oceania officially form the Eastern Asian and Oceanic Co Prosperity Pact or the EAOC for short. The EAOC will bring stability to Asia and establish a strong miltary and economic bloc in Asia. Ceylon is heavily fortified with the naval base heavily upgraded and defended. The Oceanic navy completes the OMS Retribution and it is launched with nuclear capabilities. Scientists begin to study the field of Kinetic Physics, though at this point it is highly theoretical and marginalised as a "pseudo-science". (These scientists, after receiving little funding, begin seeking investment from the Federation to study this event).  Nuclear Cruise missiles are placed on Ceylon, with the warheads pointed toward Bharat to ward off any potential aggression. The bulk of the Oceanic navy is re-directed to patrol the Indian Ocean. The nation continues its nuclear programme, now in high gear and signficantly farther along the Bharatis. ICBM's are now being targeted at the nation. The media has begun the heavy military buildup between the two nations as the "Cold War". President Smith, releases a press statement, " The Oceanic Commonwealth does not wish any illwill to neighbouring nations, the unwarranted aggression of the Bharatis is neither justified nor proper. We will not be bullied into giving in our lands and our freedom, which we have worked so hard to achieve. I, as President, request that I meet with the Bharati leadership to discuss exactly what it is they want, and to attempt a peaceful resolution to what, I fear, may be a looming conflict." The military intercepts plans that fund troops in Lanka. realizing that the situation could result in full war if not handled delicately, the Army and the General Assembly of Oceania decides to allow more representation in government and begin to lower taxes in the region. Propaganda and humanitarian events are begun. The military brass feels that the people will more willingly follow a voice of peace and of reason, than of violence and conflict. The Army has unveiled the Montgomery Mark II with 125mm cannon and a massive increase in armour. Through titanium, the Mark II, is the fastest tank in the Oceania and perhaps, Asia. The tanks are also fitted with onboard computers for the first time. Several breakthroughs in the field of computer science have made a noticable impact on technology. Oceania continues to mediate in Lanka and makes strides in placating the people, even going so far as to offer them autonomy. Militant branches of locals with no ties to Oceania deploy to mainland Bharat, with unknown intent ... Publicly, Oceania denounces the "bully" known as Bharat and will not back down. We will defend our nation, even if it means nuclear devastation. We are ready, and more importantly, willing to do all necessary to defend our lands, We Will Not Bow! After several months of planning, Oceania declares war on Bharat and begins shelling the coast, The combined navy of Oceania and Japan begin to decimate the Bharati fleet. Troops begin to attempt to form a beachhead. Major ports are targeted by the navy and air force. A combined Japan-Oceanic force lands.
    • Japan has been a Bharati ally for much longer than it was a Oceanian one. Therefore, they would logically not take part in a war which would be against what they helped fund and create.
    • Bharati Response: Look at the hypocracy of Oceania! They talk peace on the diplomatic front while backstab and attack from the back. They will pay. War is declared with Oceania and the millions of trained reservists are called up along with a huge military force to defeat the Oceanians and destroy their fighting capabilities. This is WAR!
    • Any more than three million is implausible. This war is essentially modern and the equipment and whatnot to field over three to four million was effectively beyond the United States and only barely within Soviet grasp due to the fact they had so much redundant equipment.
    • Oceania: Japan is reminded that they agreed to this sometime ago. I understand it's hard to go against an ally, but look at the facts. Fact: Bharat has been up needlessly aggressive toward Oceania. Fact: Bharat is attempting to belittle and overthrow a sovereign nation for no other reason than because they feel like it. So you wish to not partake in the war? Fine. I have the moral high ground. I will not let those wretched people take MY lands and sow discord in MY people. Bharat is the true nation of hypocrites. (BTW, it's spelled hypocrisy not hypocracy.) if Bharat does not back down, then the use of widespread nuclear detonation will be authorized. We can hit you from anywhere in the world. If you agree to end your ceaseless warmongering and driving us to this desperate measure, then we will back down. If not, our substantial ICBM's shall rain nuclear devastation from the skies. You have been warned.
    • Japan is joining the war. They signed a mutual defence pact and Japan denied you any access to carrier technology. Not to mention Japan and Bharat were acquaintances - not allies. Japan stands due to this alliance. And honestly, it's not that far off for Japan to do this, they run the economy of Southeast Asia and Indochina and you're a direct affront to that. -Feud
    • Saudi Dip: Saudi Arabia and our vassals send supplies to Oceania, and we secretly offer Oceania the potential for an invasion from the Saudi bloc in order to open a second front. We also state very clearly to Oceania that if Germany or the Federation sides with Bharat, we will withdraw direct support.
    • Feud, are you for real? Japan gave me carriers for god's sake. And Japan was a very close ally, do you want me to get the old player Nk here - or even Japan's new player Eip? And Japan, as I said, would not backtrack on an alliance pre-Oceania. Period.
  • French Union: Recruitment drives continue across all of the French Union for the Air Force, and the new model jets, bombers, transport aircraft, and helicopters continue to be manufactured in large numbers. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed. These French carrier groups enter the Northern Ocean, being the first two there. The carrier groups in the Atlantic remained stationed off the coast of Portugal, with one patrolling the waters nearby the Azores, and one patrolling the waters near Madeira. The other four carrier groups remain off the coast of the Portuguese mainland. All of the carrier groups secretly continue to prepare amphibious landing groups, along with marking targets for aircraft in the nearby area. The paramilitary groups continue to be trained and funded secretly by the French, making them more Pro-French and Pro-'Free European'. The French economy's growth continues at its accelerated pace, with no sign of stopping. Another batch of economic reforms are announced by President Auriol, with another massive stimulus package from French taxpayers being used to promote the economies' of the French Union's African members. This increases government support there, greatly, once again. It is estimated that by 1965 the African areas of the French Union will be equal to the French mainland in terms of economic prominence. The 'Free European Movement' continues at fever pitch within France. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, should be the goal of the French government, and all free democratic governments of Europe with new vigor. The French Space Agency, or FSA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to French government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. A rocket is launched into space carrying a eight man crew, and remains there for eight weeks, seen as a significant step to a possible Moon landing. Another small unmanned probe lands on the surface of the Moon, and sends important technical data back to FSA Command. Project 'Blue Spear' rockets continue to be mass produced, with over eight hundred 'Blue Spear' rockets in the French arsenal. Making it one of the most powerful nuclear arsenals on the planet.
    • Kingdom of Great Britain: Both Elizabeth II and Winston Churchill give more speeches preaching Pro-French and Pro-'Free European' ideals, as well as continuing their full support for a federation of free and democratic European states. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. French troops continue to hand out aid packages provided from French charity drives, containing food, cooking utensils and hygienic materials. A larger majority of the population accepts pro-'Free European' ideals, and more begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Greenland, and Ireland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course.
    • Ireland: The Irish government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Areas hit by nuclear strikes continue to be quarantined, with outlying areas of fallout being covered by dirt to try to reclaim the land slowly. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Union of European Microstates, Kingdom of Great Britain, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Union of European Microstates: The Union government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Kingdom of Great Britain, and Greenland, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Belgium: The Belgian government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' ideals. French arms, as well as industrial equipment, continue to be shipped to Belgium from France in an attempt to improve the Belgian military, as well as the economy. Ties continues to deepen with the Kingdom of Great Britain, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and Greenland as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.
    • Greenland: The Greenlander government continues to hold pro-French and pro-'Free European' views. Ties continue to deepen with Belgium, Ireland, Union of European Microstates, and the Kingdom of Great Britain, as they are seen as the only other free democratic states in Europe, barring France, of course. More begin to believe a Federation of free European states is the future of Western Europe.

1963.0

The Commonwealth of Oceania, and Bharat go to war - one of the first major wars since the fall of Britain. It's not clear of who the victor will be. 

The Increased economic prosperity in certain African nations continues to prevent some civil unrest but the CAF does get a grouping of Separatist rebels in the south.

The US Economy shows huge promise of advancement sending the stock market soaring into the positive. In response, various interconnected stock markets - particularly the Federation stock market - show a notable surge as well.

Nuclear power continues to become much more common with various plants worldwide going up in capable countries.

  • Italy: We continue to build up our military. The economy expands due to our oil being exported to the world. A new training method is being used to train our troops. Another 20,000 troops move to our border with Germany. Our navy builds more aircraft carriers, battleships and subs. Our nuclear program copies the design of the nukes given to us by the French, to make more for use later on. We now have six nukes altogether - while more nukes are being built. The space program is training a group of six people to get ready for the first space mission by a human.
    • Libya: Military is built up. The navy improves their ports to fit more ships. The large plantations of our country are growing more food.
    • Tunisia: Trading increases with the French colonies of Africa. More factories are being built to make more stuff.
  • Saudi Arabia: Supplies are sent to Oceania and the Iranian Royalist. Influence on Qatar and the UAE continue. The ASF is put on high alert, and training of more soldiers begins. Estimates state that the ASF may be able to reach more than 500,000 active personal if needed. Currently the ASF has 280,000 soldiers on the ready, many are being pulled from Egypt to be ready for any potential Bharati invasion. Industry and Infrastructure improve. Work on the first A-bomb continues and the first aircraft carrier is built. Rise of total union ideas continue in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Kuwait. These ideas begin to gain more steam as the governments of Yemen and Kuwait begin to talk about forming an "Arabian Confederacy" or a political union between the two nations. Even if the Union idea passes, the nation would remain a puppet of Saudi Arabia. Land reforms continue to decrease dependence on foreign food. The equalist laws are put into effect across the Saudi sphere. An open border agreement is also passed between Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Yemen. Our offer to Oceania remains, as does the statement that if the Federation, Germany or the USER enter the war on Bharat's side, we will stop supporting Oceania.
    • Federation Dip: We assure Saudi Arabia that unless unwarranted human rights abuses, or undue conflicts spread, we will not be involved on either side. 
  • Angola: Adding fuel to the fire, the two opposing governments look to Oceania and Bharat. Communist elements look for Bharati aid, as well as Soviet help. Democratic, nationalist elements look to Oceania for aid, but maintain good relationships with the Federation. In April 15, the MPLA launched a southward offensive, crossing the Zambezi, and  captured the town of Cazombo. 
  • Union of Free Europe: Recruitment drives are completed across all of the French Union for the Air Force, and the new model jets, bombers, transport aircraft, and helicopters complete their manufacture. The French Air Force is now on par with the French Navy and French Army. The borders with Germany and Spain are greatly re-inforced once again, with the current defensive structures, as well as the offensive emplacements, being improved and expanded. The Auriol-class aircraft carriers, Fantasque-class destroyers, and Colbert-class cruisers under construction continue to be built, with the next two carrier groups being completed.

This increases government support there, greatly, once again. It is estimated that by 1966 the African areas of the French Union will be equal to the French mainland in terms of economic prominence. The 'Free European Movement' reaches its apex within France and all French administered lands. All of Parliament appears to be made up of supporters, with President Auriol himself mentioning it in all of his speeches once again, and stating that the central ideal of the movement, a Federation of democratic European states, shall be voted on within six months. This is met with jubilation throughout all French and French administered lands. By the end of the year, the multi-national referendum has taken place, and it is approved within all states. In the Kingdom of Great Britain, the Monarch remains as Head of State, but now grants powers to the President of the UFE. All military forces are combined, and each state is granted a European Council seat to vote on European wide issues with the President. Each state also retains a large degree of autonomy. The now renamed European Space Agency, or ESA, becomes a greater national institution thanks to European government support, as well as OC funding and co-operation. A rocket is launched into space carrying a eight man crew, and remains there for twelve weeks, seen as a significant step to a possible Moon landing. Another small unmanned probe lands on the surface of the Moon, and sends important technical data back to ESA Command. Project 'Blue Spear' rockets continue to be mass produced, with over nine hundred 'Blue Spear' rockets in the European arsenal. Thus making it one of the most powerful nuclear arsenals on the planet.
  • Greece: Military and navy are built up. The economy expands as Greeks continue settling the regions of Pontus, Thrace and Western Anatolia. The influence of South Kurdistan continues. The army weaponry is upgraded to fit new future conflicts in Europe or Turkey in the case of revolt, Syria is influenced as well.
    • Albania: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Pontus: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Cilicia: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
    • Kurdistan: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands. Supports Greek attempts at influencing South Kurdistan.
    • Konya: Military and navy are built up. Economy expands.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: Computer technology continues to advance with many new companies emerging. Two companies vying for dominance in the tech field are Orion Industries and a newcomer, Dyno Computer Technic. New Zealand becomes the food basket of Oceania as more and more foodstuffs are being produced there. The nation's baby boom continues with a high rise in population, particularly on the Australian East Coast. Ceylon and the Solomons receive much needed attention to infrastructure and military bases are constructed on both. Nuclear research is continued. With Oceania's large uranium deposits, bombs are being manufactured in small quantities though these are designed to be smaller in yield and are mostly a deterrent. The government's recent baby incentives have really begun to take off, and for the first time in a long time, Australia and New Zealand see a stark rise in births. The desert reclamation efforts continue and begin to see substantial success. Oceania still petitions the UN for membership in the Security Council. After several test runs, Oceania sends a dog and a cat into space. These missions end in success, Oceania plans to launch a man into orbit in the coming year. Computer science advances rapidly due to the plentiful resources. Smaller and smaller devices are coming out of this.

The war continues as Oceania and the East Asian Alliance continue to fight.
  • Bharat: The nation knows they either fight now, or die trying. As a result, the nation effortlessly moves back into war footing - with slaves offered the chance to become citizens as long as they sign up and go to fight against Oceania. Meanwhile, tank production once more begins to increase to large levels. All the money gained from investments are put right into the economy and the nation begins to use slaves in a rapid manner to provide workers for all the industry now needed for the war effort. Not only this, missiles for short range attacks as well as ICBMs are being constructed by slaves in harsh conditions. They either work at a rapid pace or they die. As a result of the increased urgency, a new wave of fighter aircraft are rolled off the production lines with help from Japan (seriously, he is building aircraft with me) while the Pancher V Mark III is hurriedly put into production. Offering a moderate rise in armament - its main ability is to be able to be mass-produced at ridicoulous rates. It is being constructed in factories rapidly, while the indegenous base of steel is helping the nation heavily. Almost immediately after the invasion, troops arrive to plug the gap and then close the lines against the Oceanians. Meanwhile, the nations sends out its own aircraft carriers and destroyers as well as battleships to cut short the little crossing of the channel and kill thousands of troops as they try to cross the ocean. That's right, the navy is there and present in full force. The nation is fueled with hate as Oceania talked peace while backstabbed and attack from the back (reminds me of Pakistan in the Kargil War) and the people do not care what it takes to finish this war and bring a great victory for Bharat. The nation also enlists Nepali and Sikkimese support and the Nepali are especially helpful with Gurkah troops. However, the nation makes it clear to the world they do not plan an invasion of Australia/NZ. All they want to do is shatter Oceanian control over Ceylon. The FoA is promised its bases will not be touched in return for them not intervening in this war between the two nations. In the background, workers for irrigation projects are cut as all the resources are now directed towards the factories.

1963.5

This shall become a cult game - I promise. This will become another TGA (sorry FP).

War continues on the subcontinent. Blood, violence, death, carnage blah blah blah.

Research into nuclear power and its multiple uses becomes priority of quite a few nations due to the new war erupting on the sub-continent.

  • Italy: We continue to build up our military. The economy expands due to our oil being exported to the world. Another 20,000 troops move to our border with Germany. Our navy builds more aircraft carriers, battleships and subs. Our nuclear program copies the design of the nukes given to us by the French, to make more for use later on. We now have 12 nukes altogether. While more nukes are being made. The space program is training a group of six people to get ready for the first space mission by a human. Our space program is ready to send the group of people into space. Final things are being done to get the crew ready for space. Due to the war in South East Asia we secure our borders and cities by having the military act as the police in this situation.
    • Libya: We train our troops for practice. We modernize the country. Cities are becoming bigger with more buildings.
    • Tunisia: More factories are being built. We are making this country an industrial nation.
  • Tibet: The government of Tibet announces a new three-part plan (dubbed Mao's Revenge) to become a haven for businesses. The first part of this plan consists of the implementation of market socialism and the building of a free trade zone in the outskirts of Lhasa (ready in Q1 1964), the remaining to parts of the plan are a secret. Tibet would also like to announce that citizenship will be provided to anyone who has the equivalent of 100,000 USD in any currency in a Tibetan bank account. Furthermore, the government would also like to announce the abolition of all taxes in Tibet. Tibet also welcomes any foreign investment. Infrastructure is built up and so is the army in preparation for mass immigration. (OOC: Sorry for my absence)
    • Saudi Dip: Saudi Arabia will invest in Tibet's industry if they agree to remain neutral in the Oceania-Bharat war and side with us in our own war if needed.
    • Tibetan Dip: Accepted.
  • Bharat: The nation of Bharat continues its heavy war-time stance. The nation finally begins to win several battles against the Oceanian soldiers and finally pushes them back from their beachhead straight back into the sea - taking tens of thousands of prisoners of war. They have successfully destroyed the naval capabilies of Oceania in the region and have naval superiority in the channel between Lanka and Bharat.
  • Saudi Arabia: Influence on Qatar and the UAE continues. Military build up continues at a rapid pace, as we prepare for a potential Bharati  attack. We close the Suez Canal to Bharati ships. Defensive technology is prepared across the Saudi sphere. Industry and Infrastructure expand. Work on the first Saudi atomic bomb continues. Pro-union ideas continue to rise in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Kuwait. While Yemen and Kuwait's governments are totally pro-union, the King remains hesitant. 
  • Mexico Elections in Mexico have started between Gustavo Diaz Ordaz and Adolfo López Mateos. Ordaz wants to get Mexico out of depression by turning socialist - while Mateos wants to get the people food by improving working conditions by raising taxes for the Mexicans. Dogfights are being fought between voters in towns and cites. The Mexican army is being told if any fighting breaks out to fire at protesters.

1964.0

  • Mexico: Adolfo López Mateos won the Mexican elections by 52% to 48%. The Mexican people are outraged by the results. Over 70% of the people in the Mexico City area voted for Ordaz. Fighting breaks out In front of the Mexico Capitol building. Mateos promises Communism, as a result of not having a Mexican Civil war. The next day a new Mexican constitution was written and is now the Peoples Republic of Mexico.
  • Central African Federal Republic: The much larger than OTL Central African Republic becomes a federal nation (on your map it covers the OTL CAR, Chad and Niger). A drive is made to quell northern separatism through a concourse-based federal system. A literacy campaign is started in Bangui and Niamey. Small scale farming and fishing is encouraged on the shores of Lac T'Chad. The the traditional cotton industry is hoped to become more profitable around Lac T'Chad.
Central African Federal Republic AvARw in 1964.5
