The year is 1948, the Second World War has just ended. The victorious Allies stand triumphant in Berlin and Rome declaring the end of the War in Europe, while the United States swiftly occupies Japan and Korea to prevent the spread of Communism.

However, with the victories in Asia and Europe, the battle in the Americas ended in a stalemate. The recently formed Federation of the Americas supported the Second Mexican Empire and its Axis Allies completely reversing the front and forming a stalemate following Federation conquests of the majority of the Caribbean - particularly Cuba. In exchange for peace and the recognition of Federation annexations in the Caribbean the US demanded complete detachment from the remaining War in the Pacific allowing the US to focus on its only remaining enemy. Japan was kept alive only by the timely intervention of the Federation in 1943.

The War in Asia concluded in 1948 with Japan losing Korea to a mass uprising in favor of an attempted democracy as well as the US securing them as an ally to use against Japan now completely surrounded. The end of the war by American nuclear weapons led to the development of a new global power mechanic. Multiple great powers spread across the globe rather than clustered together, all rushing to gain nuclear weapons. The year is 1948. Make each country your own.

Rules

The Main Rules of the Game are as follows. If any issues crop up, Mods and I will convene to edit or consider adding or changing rules.


  • The main goal of these rules are to keep the game realistic. Every turn must be plausible and no one can achieve world domination in ten turns,
  • A turn is one day. Each turn is composed of actions, which can be militaristic, economic, diplomatic or constructive.
  • Turns begin at 12:00 PM CST (5:00 PM UTC/1:00 PM EST). Do not edit past turns.
  • Any conquered lands have their inhabitants and they must be dealt with.
  • Keep in mind the linguistic effects of conquering and colonisation.
  • Every five years a map is to be made. A moderator marked as the Mapmaker will edit the map.
  • Every map must be saved as a .png on the current map template.
  • Each player will "call" a nation, this will be their main nation.
  • The moderators of this game have the power to grant and regulate all technology for each state as well as regulate plausibility. They also have the right to create random yet plausible and fair events in any and every nation throughout the course of the game.
  • Espionage is allowed and will be detailed later, there is a clear distinction between espionage and meta-gaming.
  • Alliances and unions are allowed as is bargaining to achieve these, although remember to be plausible.
  • If a nation is inactive then it is considered to have become isolationist and is fair game for conquering and attacking. However, there will be resistance.
  • There are super-national confederations (e.g., The Holy Roman Empire, The Kalmar Union, The European Union, The African Union, etc). They function like alliances and can be broken and formed.
  • You can commission privateers to raid a nation's shipping but they will reduce relations with the nation you hired them against.
  • The game ends in the present year.
  • Profile pages for your state are highly recommended. See here for an example.
  • If you are new, you may start the game in the turn that you joined.
  • No editing any past turns to contradict events which have already happened.
  • Not everyone can have an industrialized, liberal, stable, peaceful nation.
  • Unless your nation has been annexed in a war or vassalized as a result of war (see the mods for the last one), you may not switch nations.

Game

1960.0

The influence of two superpowers on Indonesia causes the newly born nation to Fracture. Sayuti Melik maintains most control of Java except part of the Northern Tip, and also maintains a powerbase in Kalimintan, and a few other Islands. The Democratic leader Sutan Sjahir (but actually a dictator) Takes a good part of the islands with him particularly Sumatra and some of the more lightly populated islands as well as part of northern Java. The general population of these two now fighting states are relatively equal. (The map will be updated with the territorial control)

The USSR sees a general political attitude of Withdraw, with many advocating maintaining power over the remainder of its Warsaw Pact States.

The Italian offensives into Yugoslavia draw the Ire of the Soviet Union which makes a Major statement to Italy, warning them to withdraw from Albania and Yugoslavia or face the Warsaw Pact alone. The USSR diplomats claim the Italians are acting in contrary to the Budapest Accords.

The German referendum takes place with the Two Germanies agreeing fully to unite into a Single Germany. The Myriad of opinions about foreign powers places Germany solidly in a neutral stance as it sends out its diplomatic feelers to other nations (The East German Player may now play as a unified Germany)

The US sees the rise of Atomophobia, fear of the nuclear bomb, as the nuclear exchange harming mainland parts of hte United States has put a great deal of culture shock into the American populace.

The American Civil rights movement begins to pick up some momentum in the country as more able leaders take control.

The Kongo Region entirely breaks off from its colonial overlords in Portugal and the Netherlands. The Nation immediately devolves into an intensely bloody civil war with no clear winner or loser, turning the area into a political black hole.

  • Western African Federation: We declare our independence to UK colony, and according the colonies look to shrink to British Empire. We officially become as Democracy. More soldiers are joining to the army, then we call off British Forces to go back to UK. So far more buildings build as military expands. The economy invests while industry keeps in good income.
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles, and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly. This youth culture also becomes more publicly active, working toward charitable works in the nation and around the globe. John F. Kennedy beats Richard Nixon in the world's first televised election, with Adlai Stevenson as his running mate. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push toward desegregation. NASA launches Paraclete-1 into a stable orbit above Earth, the first artificial satellite in history. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigration. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. The US sends 50,000 troops to Java to aid the Democrats to take the Island. The naval forces in the South China Sea are redirected to station troops in Borneo and blockade the Sulawasi Islands. More economic support is given to Prime Minister Sjahir. Meanwhile, President-elect John F. Kennedy visits the newly-reunited Germany, in which he makes a speech calling for "Mr. Khrushchev, tear down this wall!"
  • Italy: In a public statement, the king claims that the Soviet threats are unjust and needlessly aggressive. Italy, Albania, and Yugoslavia were never involved in the Budapest Conference, and the king claims that this exempts them from its outcome. He also states that the Italian involvement in Albania was only a consequence of its involvement in NATO and would not have been attempted if they had a choice. He goes on to argue that Yugoslavia attacked Italy on its own, and should face the consequences of this choice. He makes the promise that Italian troops will leave Albania once reconstruction efforts are completed and the Soviets assure Albania will be allowed to remain democratic, and that troops will leave Yugoslavia once peace terms can be decided upon. In the meantime, 70 newly-constructed light tanks, 40 newly-constructed medium tanks, 20 newly-constructed heavy tanks, and 40 new self-propelled guns enter service, with more on the way. Additionally, the last of bomber production adds 20 new bombers to the air force. 50 light tanks, 20 medium tanks, and ten heavy tanks are sent to forces in the north as reinforcements, while the rest are sent to occupied Yugoslav ports to reinforce Albanian forces. Knowing that the USSR might follow through on its threats, Italy offers these peace terms to Yugoslavia: Italy will agree to remove troops from Yugoslavia and will agree to a ten-year non-aggression pact if Yugoslavia will agree to remove its blockade of Albania, allow 100,000 Italian troops to remain in the country until reconstruction finishes, and guarantee Albanian independence from the Warsaw Pact. Until terms are agreed to, Italy and Yugoslavia will remain at war, and troops in northern Italy continue their offensive to apply pressure to Yugoslavia to agree to terms quickly.
    • Albania: Being able to receive supplies once again greatly aids rebuilding efforts, though they could still last until the new millennium. Forces in Macedonia and Kosovo continue to push north toward Serbia and, ultimately, Belgrade, and forces in Montenegro continue their offensive north toward Bosnia.
    • Yugoslavia Dip: (Right, this is Person67 because AH28 is away and I am keeping his country going. No way on earth have you advanced that far into Yugoslavia or broken the blockade. If you want to do the algo's we can do that but until then don't claim you are just marching into Yugoslavia. I can guess what AH would say and it is probably - no we will fight on)
    • Italy Dip: 1. I only said I had forces in those regions, and that they were making offensives. These regions border Albania, so at the very least they would get in. The algo is a reasonable point, though. I'll have to do that. 2. The plan was to occupy ports in Yugoslavia and use those to get supplies in to Albania and the troops stationed there. If that seems unreasonable to a mod or someone else, I can remove it.
    • Federation Dip: We remind Italy WW2 is still fresh in the memories of the last generation and that Italian aggression into Albania and Yugoslavia were two of the same steps taken by the Italians in the Second World War. Italy is to retreat from Yugoslavia and Albania or face determined resistance as well as a Full Federation intervention into the War. As a Response to this, the Supercarrier Lusitania is deployed alongside the Battleship Minas Gerais, the Libertad and Infame Escort Carriers, seven cruisers, ten destroyers, five frigates, and four attack submarines, as well as the newly build Ballistic Missile Submarine Amazonas.
    • Italy Dip: The government issues a response to the Federation's message, which reads similarly to the following: The only reason we even went to war in the first place was to hasten peace. Yugoslavia declared war on us, and we offered them peace terms. Which they refused. Besides, the Yugoslav blockade prevents us from withdrawing our forces, so we need to force them to accept terms and remove it or we will never be able to withdraw.
    • Yugoslav Dip: If you agree to withdraw we will remove a blockade and you launched an unprovoked invasion of Albania. We are defending them from aggressive Italian actions.
    • Italy Dip: We agree to these terms so long as you also agree to take no aggressive action against Albania.
    • Yugoslav Dip: We believe these terms to be acceptable except we wish for Federation forces to act as peacekeeping troops in Albania.
    • Italian Dip: So be it.
  • The Netherlands: Changes its government so that it becomes National Socialist. It also wants to leave NATO because of change of government. It changes its name to The United National-Socialist Provinces of The Netherlands, or in short, UNSPN.
    • Israeli Dip: The State of Israel denounces the new government and does not recognize it. It calls upon its Allies of the United Kingdom, France, Kurdistan and the United States to do so as well, and perhaps to undertake more action.
    • British Diplomacy: We agree with Israel and think that the Netherlands downward spiral could affect the weaker West European nations. We no longer recognise them as a nation and state that until they change from this foolish form of government we will not recognise them.
  • Republic of Malaya: We continue support of the democracy governments in Indonesia. Patrols increase near Kalimantan. We stand side by side with the US in this Indonesian issue.
  • Federation of the Americas:The Federation seeing the Civil war develop in Indonesia organizes a major show of Force deploying 50,000 troops to Jakarta in northern Java as well as overwhelming Aerial and Armor support (500 aircraft, and nearly 500 armored vehicles. The Federation on top of this supports Melik and the nationalists with another 100,000 soldiers being deployed to Java further south with another 10,000 troops as a patrolling garrison for some of the smaller but Nationalist held islands. The Federation navy also deploys a battlegroup to Java arriving in Jakarta as quickly as possible. The Federation battle group consists of the Supercarrier Saõ Paulo, the Battleships Natal and Fortaleza, as well as five cruisers, ten destroyers, eight frigates, and three attack submarines. Another fleet is put into the Locality with the Federation Supercarrier Bolivar escorted by the Escort carriers Amazonas and Humyata and the battleship Dom Pedro, five cruisers, 15 destroyers, ten frigates, and three attack submarines. This deployment while a huge expense is easily brought about due to SDP Allies in the general area of Indonesia allowing a quick and semi-painless deployment. The Federation invites Egypt to apply for SDP membership. This movement on the Island country of Indonesia sees some issue with some of the population of the Federation who seem to not see the reasoning of helping a far away island nation. This reflects a changing attitude of the Federation populace into a more neutral state rather than militarily aggressive one. The Federation continues a lot of development on its new aircraft, vehicles, and warships with a winning design for the new destroyers and Frigates brought about. The Federation continues building its new battleship with its nearing completion bringing about the modern battleship. The Federation begins to consider retiring its escort carriers and the overall replacement of the Carrier force into a large nuclear supercarrier force. The population movement in the Federation continues with a surprising amount of the poorer citizens on the coast making way to San Salvacion. This leads to almost two million in migration as many new houses begin to pop up. The Government itself subsidizes the housing here to allow for the growth as well as finance quick development of an economically powerful middle class in the Capital. The Capital in this regard begins to see more skyscrapers and large buildings pop up. The Federation begins pressuring Malaya to side with the Federation and its SDP Allies during the Indonesian civil war and warns against any seizures of land of the Indonesian state. The Federation finished construction of the Amazonas Ballistic Missile submarine and officially announces the commissioning of the Lusitania, and the Hades supercarriers. The Federation is shocked by the US launch of a satellite and in response prepares to launch its own in six months, accelerating its timetable significantly.
  • Romania: We retrieve our troops from Yugoslavia, and step out of the Warsaw Pact. We militarize our border with Bulgaria and the USSR, expecting an imminent attack. We invite the major powers to the Kishinev Conference . We also ask for help from other nations. We want to ally ourselves to Hungary (MOD response needed).
    • ​The US sends 500 troops to help defend Romania.
    • Federation Dip: We offer to support Romania and sends 10,000 troops, 100 aircraft and 400 tanks to support with plans to send a support battle group. From the Saudi base as well (This is all relocated from my base in Saudi Arabia.
    • The French send 20,000 troops to help defend Romania along with 300 tanks and 70 aircraft relocated from the Levant and from France proper.
    • The UK: We send 5000 troops and equipment to Romania and may send a nuclear bomb (depending on how severe things get).
    • No Strategic nukes. -Feud
    • Italy sends Romania moral support. We would send military support, but we have our own war to fight.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Construction on the Fuji Speedway and the Suzuka Circuit continues.
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. Troops are withdrawn from Germany and from the Caucasian front as a sign of good faith to negotiations. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate. France agrees to the Budapest terms. More military hardware is produced - in particular APC's, tanks and fighters - as older models are phased out. Worries over the decline of Dutch stability sparks a debate in Paris about whether the French state should intervene in the lowlands and establish a right wing government. French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa.
    • French North Africa (not including Algeria): Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity.
      • French Algeria: Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria.
      • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region.
      • French Indochina: Efforts to curtail Communism in the region begin as heavy handed suppression of resistance is endorsed while leniency to defectors is promised. Troops are moved north to maintain French control along the northern borders with China and extensive sweeps of the Indochinese jungles begin. Aside from this, a policy of economic development in the region begins to help restore the economy of the colony and cultural promotion begins. Recently transferred units are sent north to help out the Nationalist Chinese, Commonwealth and American troops bogged down in China. Death squads commit atrocities against Communist sympathisers or suspected sympathisers, as an effort to crush all opposition to French rule continues.
      • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
      • French Middle East: The French begin withdrawing from Jordan and most of Syria relocating to the Alawite and Christian regions in the east. The remaining French lands are are reorganized into the Free State of the Levant. The new state is declared the first new state of the Union Francaise, The Levant state forces connect with French troops that relocated from Egypt forming a contingency of 200,000 troops.
  • 'Portuguese West Africa:' Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occurs with the creation of a national guard made up entirely of Portuguese Africans (it numbers 3000 men) as well as military restructuring and replacing of outdated equipment. Control of the military is transferred to Portugal as per the self governance agreement. The colonial government also begins encouraging emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. Colonial Troops and militias evacuate to Congo conducting a policy of scorched earth to prevent any spilling over of the conflict into northern Angola.
  • The United Kingdom: We grant independence to West Africa but continue to put down rebellion in the Sudan and Uganda areas and do not recognise them as independent since they refuse to answer the Queen's Mandate and present their terms. We send forces in Sarawak to raid Java and hope to secure it for a democratic government. Our economy skyrockets thanks to taxes collected from former colonies. This allows us to continue to build up our weaponry and fight those that threaten us. We claim the PRC as illegitimate and recognise the Republic of China as the only party fit to rule the huge nation. We round up many PRC sympathizers and members of the PRC Party on the East Coast of China and plan on moving them to high security prisons around the world to prevent them from further spreading the message of Communism to Asia.
  • PRC is over, the ROC has the situation under control and Asia was evacuated per the ending of war treaty in Budapest. -Feud
    • The Crown's Communist Party: We order the United Kingdom to recognise us as the official and only government in Great Britain; If they do not the consequences will be severe and more than one nation could be hurt in our process of taking control. We now have three nuclear weapons in our possession (two that were put in Israel during the Suez Canal Crisis and one we smuggled from the United Kingdom). We also condemn the UK for so easily letting go of the British colonies around the world.
    • What?
    • ​Mods, Do something!!!!
    • Non-partisan entities with nuclear devices is not a thing. -Nate
    • The Crown's Communist Party is not nonpartisan.
    • Nope ... no rebel group playable unless made through events by me ... Sorry, Dude. -Feud
    • Okay. But can you please make them do something. They're pretty much a terrorist organization and have done very little since their creation.
  • Israel:  Research regarding nuclear weapons continues, with scientist searching for the quickest way to successfully build a nuke. The State calls for all people of the Jewish faith to come to the State of Israel. It also calls for those that are of the Jewish faith but cannot come to Israel to try to convert those who are not of the Jewish faith. These calls finally begin to yield profits as a lot of Jews move into Israel. 200.000 more Jewish immigrants have been recorded, putting the population at around 3.1 million people. The first season of the Israeli Football League (IFL) ends with Hapoel Tel Aviv winning the title. Two new clubs are formed, one from Sidon (Sporting Sidon) and one from Jerusalem (Maccabi Jerusalem). The Democratic Indonesian government is recognized by the State. Talks with the French continue.
  • Germany: Across the nation people celebrate the reunification of Germany. The American president- elect is well received by the German people. After the celebrations the government gets straight to work integrating the West and East. Reconstruction efforts continue in the east while the government begins an incentive program for increased coal and steel production in the West. Along the coastline shipyards are improved hoping to increase commercial trade. Both the former East and West German armies are brought under a single command structure and equipment is standardized. With the reunification vote out of the way the CDU declares that free elections will be held across Germany within the next six months. Officially we withdrawal from the Warsaw Pact and claim the former East German membership in the EU as an observer member. We send some limited support to Romania to help in their transition from the Warsaw Pact. We also call on the Socialist Dutch government to step down and allow free elections and declare an embargo on them until those elections are held.
    • ​French Dip: De Gaulle requests permission to visit France and discuss the possibility of face to face talks to determine not only the future of Franco-German relations but also that of Europe as de Gaulle hopes to promote a new era of true European harmony and peace and an end to the wars that devastated the continent over the past centuries. Paris proposes the established of a European Coal and Steel commission to not only help promote regional cooperation but help foster economic development.
      • Germany: We accept the French proposal and send representatives to discuss terms
    • British Diplomacy: We are ecstatic that Germany is one nation once again and ask if the new leaders will allow the Queen to make an official visit. The UK offers an alliance and trade agreement to Germany. We also agree with their embargo against the Netherlands and follow in Germany's footsteps by doing the same until the nation changes from its current ways.
      • Germany: We thank the UK for their support on the Netherlands issue and accept an alliance and trade agreement. We would also be delighted if the Queen came to visit.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Moroccan Territories. We create the “Las colonias españolas” for all Spanish majority settlements in Africa to be directly administrated by Spain. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 10,000. We will create the autonomous territories of Zenaga, Wolof, Peul and Sonaike.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 30,000 Spain
    • Syria: We continue rebuild Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow the US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program but are wiling to stop it if necessary. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 14,000 troops.
  • Yugoslavia We continue our research in nuclear technology, hoping to develop a bomb by the late 70s. We invest in science. We build more schools and also invest in them. We build our infrastructure and military. We expand our cities by building houses. We builds few houses. We improve the quality of life in Yugoslavia. We build more motorways to connect Yugoslavia. We aid Communist revolutions all over the word, especially in Greece. We aid the Soviets in WW3. We hope to send the first Yugoslavian man to space sometimes in the 70s or 80s. We improve medicine and hospitals in Yugoslavia. (Posted by Person for AH28)
  • Yemen: We continue to enlarge our economy and start constructing our first ever fleet. We start construction of two destroyers at Aden. We create more education facilities and water supplies.
  • Philippines: We also try to establish more friendly diplomatic and economic relationships with several Communist countries, and we also reconsider our hostile relationship with the Soviet Union, attempting to open trade agreements with it. We still continue to use the economic aid from America, devoting them to our modernisation effort. We invest millions of dollars in our textile, steel and petrochemical industries, which are flourishing like never before. We fund a massive construction project that will link all its major islands. We also improve our already large agricultural base. We see our commodity trade volume rise. We remain neutral in the Indonesian Civil War, trying to resist foreign pressure to step in it.

The French population begins to show some surge as a trend toward having more kids becomes more noticeable in France.

The Saudi Arabian economy surges forward as its large investment into its oil production has caused mass amounts of wealth to flow into the country.

The Egyptian offer of Membership in the Arab League finally sparks some interest with Oman, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, and Qatar all join the Arab League with pressure on the remaining Arab states to join.

The Indonesian Civil war stabilizes as US and Federation troops stabilize the battle lines leaving the current borders more or less.

The Second Indochinese Revolt begins with Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia all erupting into violence. The Vietnamese in general form a core military force of 250,000 with Freedom Fighters from the previous guerrilla war contributing heavily to this professionalism. Cambodia and Laos, however, erupt into more violent public protests as the French begin to lose control of the Colony.

The White Settlement of Rhodesia, and now Tanzania continues with British garrison troops establishing more segregated areas for Whites and Blacks

South Africa begins an industrialization process but in general only employs whites in the experience and education heavy areas of the industrial business. Work on South African nuclear program shows ability to build and detonate a nuclear weapon by 1964.

  • Western African Federation: We continue to improve military and economy. Due to the Indonesian Civil War, we'd like to join the civil war to help nationalists. Our construction to these buildings looks to be completed. We plan to build more factories to gain more vehicles.
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles, and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly. This youth culture also becomes more publicly active, working toward charitable works in the nation and around the globe. Vice President Adlai Stevenson conducts a world tour to meet with all the important officials of Europe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push toward desegregation. NASA continues to launch more satellites, with the intention to reach the moon within ten years. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. The US sends and additional 80,000 troops to Java to aid the Democrats hold on to the northern tip. The naval forces near Borneo pushes south to blockade the enclave of nationalists on Kalimenten, with 30,000 troops en route. 10,000 are deposited on the Island, with the remaining 20,000 redeployed to secure the northern part of Sulawasi. These naval forces include an aircraft carriers, five battleships, seven destroyers and 50 smaller vessals. Air force bases on Borneo are also used to give aerial superiority over Kalimenten. A second fleet of an aircraft carrier, three battleships, five destroyers and 30 smaller vessels secure the channel between Sumatra and Java, also providing aerial support for the forces in Java. More economic support is given to Prime Minister Sjahir. We ask the forces of Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines to coordinate an attack to drive the nationalists out of Kalimantan. Widespread fear over nuclear waste causes all nuclear testing to go underground.
  • Romania:​ We continue the expanding of economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Romanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia. We want an alliance with Hungary (MOD response needed).
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Construction on the Fuji Speedway and the Suzuka Circuit continues.
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. Troops are withdrawn from Germany and from the Caucasian front as a sign of good faith to negotiations. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate. France agrees to the Budapest terms. More military hardware is produced - in particular APC's, tanks and fighters - as older models are phased out. Worries over the decline of Dutch stability sparks a debate in Paris about whether the French state should intervene in the lowlands and establish a right wing government. French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democraticly elected government or face French intervention. De Gaulle promises to liberate the Netherlands once more from Nazi oppression and troops are sent to the border along with two armored divisions. Apart from that Paris declares an embargo on the Netherlands and opts to close off their access to the North Sea asking the British to cooperate with this motion.
      • French North Africa (not including Algeria): Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity.
        • French Algeria: Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria.
        • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region.
        • French Indochina: Troops once more begin suppression campaigns in Indochina but the colonial administration grows tired of the continued fighting in the region and many military and administrative authorities in the colony demand that Paris come to a permanent solution. Paris' response is more troops and giving the administration a free hand in dealing with the problem. One of the solutions they begin considering is negotiations with anti-Communist leaders to grant full autonomy to the State of Vietnam, the state of Laos and the state of Cambodia within the French union. Meanwhile, paramilitary and regular armed forces continue to carry out anti-guerrilla campaigns throughout the colony.
        • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
        • French Middle East: The French begin withdrawing from Jordan and most of Syria relocating to the Alawite and Christian regions in the east. The remaining French lands are are reorganized into the Free State of the Levant. The new state is declared the first new state of the Union Francaise, The Levant state forces connect with French troops that relocated from Egypt forming a contingency of 200,000 troops.
  • Israel: Research regarding nuclear weapons continues, with scientist searching for the quickest way to successfully build a nuke. With the recent Nazifying of the Netherlands, most of the remaining Jews there move towards Israel, 13.500 of the 14.000 immigrating towards Israel. From other countries, another 50.000 move for Israel, putting the population at around 3.2 million. The second season of the Israeli Football League (IFL) begins. The Democratic Indonesian government is recognized by the State. Talks with the French continue. The State of Israel SECRETLY orders the Mossad to assassinate high ranking Dutch Nazi Leaders, as it cannot tolerate any form of Nazism or Fascism. The State of Israel applies for membership of NATO.
    • ​The US accepts Israel into NATO.
  • Italy: We begin withdrawing troops from occupied Yugoslavia and Albania, though not all troops were able to leave in time, leaving 300,000 troops in Albania to maintain stability and pressure against Communist movements in the country until Federation peacekeeping forces could arrive. The Italian Army adds another 50 medium tanks, 40 heavy tanks, and 40 self-propelled guns to its number. The first of Italy's battleships reaches completion, but military planners decide that this efficiency cannot continue if Italy ever wants to have a navy on par with a regional power, let alone a Great Power. Research begins into a form of missile submarine, and construction begins on a larger submarine force. Tank production slows to make up for the additional industrial burden. We propose a trade agreement with Germany, and begin investing in the economy.
    • Federation Dip: The Italian Army is to completely evacuate Albania as well, this was considered part of the Agreement. The Federation will conduct the peacekeeping mission in Albania
    • Yugoslav Dip: Now all Italian troops leave. That was the agreement. You break the agreement and the ceasefire is over. You are still interfering in a foreign nation's affair so get out.
    • Italy Dip: Well, that didn't last long.
    • Yugoslav Dip: I am defending Albanian rights. You're an imperialist and remind me of the Fascists before your government. Get out we offered Albania the opportunity to become a member of Yugoslavia, you just invaded for no reason. Move out of Albania.
    • Italy Dip: We invaded 1. as part of the NATO vs Warsaw Pact fight and 2. before you offered to annex them. Also, we are leaving when the actual peacekeeping force arrives. Leaving before then would be like forgetting a steak near the shark tank.
    • Yugoslav Dip: I see a brigade strength force in Albania belonging to the Fed as a peacekeeping force. Hop to it.
    • German Dip: We accept your offer.
  • Republic of Malaya: The RMN blockades the sea between Sumatra and Borneo. We continue to support the democratic governments in Indonesia. We send three battalions to take on nationalist troops in Kalimantan.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to see large economic and industrial growth. Multiple modern legislative laws put into place prevent a good amount of corruption in the government and limit campaign funding. The Federal initiatives put in over a decade ago begin to take noticeable hold of the country. With New Highways, Railways, Metro Systems, and a well coordinated and supplied military and national guard the Federation has become a relative nightmare for any potential invaders due to the quick response that could be mustered. The Federation, seeing the situation, devolve in the Kongo sends 300 advisors to allied forces in the Kongo, influencing the Creation of the Kongolese KNA (Kongolese National Army) a Nationalist group geared towards taking back the Kongo in a singular State. Further Development of the Federations military equipment continues. New Designs of Destroyers and Frigates are submitted with first construction on the ships to begin within six months. The Federation seeing American Advances into Indonesia particularly Kalimintan paradrops nearly 10,000 troops into Southern Sulawesi immediately taking a Small southern section of Sulawesi and linking it with the Nationalist portion. Within the month the majority of the South Sulawesi province has fallen to Federation Forces. The Federation continues to Supply the Indonesian nationalists who are inclined to begin raising a professional army to combat their US-supported half. The Federation naval dominance in the interior seas of Indonesia allows rather dominant position on Sulawesi particularly the Southern Half. The Federation, however, does make a concentrated move to transport nationalist forces out of their Kalimintan enclave and ships them to Sulawesi. The Federations involvement with the Nationalists as well as the relatively competent leadership of the Indonesian generals has led to Federation training and supply of nearly 150,000 Nationalist soldiers to moved towards helping the Nationalists conduct their own offensive war on top of Federation assistance. The Federations navy within Indonesia conducts support operations for the forces in Jakarta intent on keeping the battle lines in Indonesia stable for the time being. The Federation ramps up its troop concentration in Indonesia to nearly 210,000 and growing they are heavily supported by aircraft (nearly 500) and Armored vehicles with nearly 500 tanks and armored vehicles being in the area as well. The Close by naval concentration also gives noticeable support to the Indonesian Expeditionary force. The Federation continues construction on its new battleship. Federation forces arrive in Albania as a peacekeeping force. It remains a small force of about 10,000 supported heavily by the nearby fleet. The Federation also migrates a good portion of its Forces north into the northern Tip of Java with 150,000 forces solidified around the Democrat controlled portion of Java. This force maintains nearly 500 Tanks, and almost 400 Aircraft. The Federation with more movement coming through Kalimintan deploys another 40,000 troops to Sulawesi securing the northern Perimeter. The initial 10,000 troops usually meant for Garrison duty projects a safety blanker across the Rear of Indonesia with the Naval Supply route in remaining secure. In response to increased US naval presence, The Federation Navy seeing a large US naval force enter the area agrees to a proportional response with the Fleet Carriers Brasilia and Valquíria, as well as Escort Carriers Vargas and Salvçao, accompanied by the Battleships Sao Paulo, and Salvadore as well as nearly five supporting cruisers, 30 destroyers, 15 frigates, and a huge submarine Fleet of nearly 20 attack submarines. The Federation also begins shipping a lot more air support from the homeland with thousands of Aircraft mobilized in Indonesia.
    • Italy Dip: When the Federation's forces arrive, Italian forces begin withdrawal.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occurs with the creation of a national guard made up entirely of Portuguese Africans (it numbers 3000 men) as well as military restructuring and replacing of outdated equipment. Control of the military is transferred to Portugal as per the self governance agreement. The colonial government also begins encouraging emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola.
  • British East Africa: Revolts in British East Africa have settled down and the African Leader in the colony hass agreed to the terms of the Queen's Mandate and waiting for an official response from the UK to officially become an autonomous Queen's Mandate. Khartoum has been made the capital of Sudanese-Uganda and governmental building is being built there. We have expanded infrastructure although out the mandate and with the militartization from the UK, a national guard has been created to enforce law and protect Sudano-Uganda.
    • British Diplomacy: You are now officially an autonomous territory of the United Kingdom. The Queen will be visiting once the new government building is finished.
  • The United Kingdom: We accept France's request and prevent all Netherlander Navy from passing through the North Sea. We request that Germany also helps us by placing embargoes on the Netherlands. We ask other members of NATO to allow our ally Israel to join the orginisation. We officially leave Indonesia now that American and Federation troops are controlling and keeping peace in the area. We declare our neutrality in the Second Indochina war but keep our troops in the Eastern Republic of China, Myanmar, and Tibet in case war spreads to these nations. We wish to change the EU in a dramatic way and think that it would be better to, instead of practically isolating and condemning them, invite all Communist nations in Europe to join the European Union, especially the USSR. We think that this will help to better the continent and prevent future wars from breaking out. The Queen makes an official visit to Germany and congratulates them on their official reunification and membership in the EU. (Question for a mod: Is Greece still in a civil war?)
    • ​French Dip: The French government warns that it will not allow the Soviets to join the European Union and states that the whole point of such an organization is to promote a FREE EUROPE not one oppressed by the Communists. However, the French government wouild be willing to invite any nations of the Warsaw bloc to join the union should they wish And the French promise to support their independence from the Soviet bloc.
    • British Diplomacy: We understand your concern but if members of the USSR do not join it will be much more difficult for us to reform those nations than it would be by using the EU as a platform. We agree with you and invite all those in the Warsaw Bloc to join the European Union but implore that you reconsider and maybe allow the USSR to join as an observer.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin bulding up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 52,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Moroccan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 15,000.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 71,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 35,000 Spaniards.
  • Germany: Across the nation people celebrate the Queens visit and the national elections. The CDU wins a majority of the vote and their candidate, Heinrich Lübke, is elected president. The new president immediately announces his intentions to travel to France for talks in promoting greater European economic integration. Reconstruction efforts continue in the east while the government begins an incentive program for increased coal and steel production in the West. Along the coastline shipyards are improved hoping to increase commercial trade. The new united military continues to train and is given modern equipment. We continue to enforce our embargo on the Netherlands and move troops to the border to assist any French intervention. Also since we are allowing Communist nations into the EU, Germany requests full voting membership in the organization as German neutrality is not required in this situation anymore.
  • Syria: We continue rebuild Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow the US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program but are wiling to stop it if necessary with goals of making nukes by the late of 80s. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 17,000 troops. We begin to work on Russian weaponry making knockoffs. We begin to work on our air force wanting to buy jets from any country that is willing to sell them.
  • Philippines: We also try to establish more friendly diplomatic and economic relationships with several Communist countries, and we also reconsider our hostile relationship with the Soviet Union, attempting to open trade agreements with it. We still continue to use the economic aid from America, devoting them to our modernisation effort. We invest millions of dollars in our textile, steel and petrochemical industries, which are flourishing like never before. We continue to fund a massive construction project that will link all its major islands. We also improve our already large agricultural base. We see our commodity trade volume rise as we continue to promote our export-oriented modernisation strategy. We join in the Indonesian Civil War in the side of the Americans, invading East and North Kalimantan and Northern Sulawesi with a total of 100,000 troops. We request military aid from America.
    • ​The US forces in Sulawesi help fortify the Philippine position.
  • Jordan: We have completed our parliament for Jordan. We upgrade our technology for military and for normal use. We also take a step towards nuclear power. We also work on better roads, and we set up some companies owned by our country, and we also have more job offerings open to anyone in our country. Our king, Khalid Mudallal, has started to spread propaganda against racism and nationalism. Our parliament has started to work on rules for the king (such as the king cannot punish anyone who has committed crime without parliament) to avoid any dictatorship from going on, and has also banned any discrimination towards any race whatsoever.
  • Yugoslavia: We continue to research in nuclear technology, hoping to develop a bomb by the late 70s. We invest in science. We build more schools and also invest in them. We build our infrastructure and military. We expand our cities by building houses. We builds few houses. We improve the quality of life in Yugoslavia. We build more motorways to connect Yugoslavia. We aid Communist revolutions all over the word, especially in Greece. We aid the Soviets in WW3. We hope to send the first Yugoslavian man to space sometimes in the 70s or 80s. We improve medicine and hospitals in Yugoslavia.
  • Yemen: We continue building infrastructure and economy. We start constructing an airport in the capital and begin to create a sovereign oil fund. We ease Shari law reducing the penalties for breaking and we are more lenient in our persecution of it.

1961.0

With the Increasing support of the US and its Allies, the Republic of Sumatra is formed in the wake of the American and Philippine Troops taking control of the conflict. This increasingly Liberal state sees the US and Filipinos as Allies and there to keep control of the conflict from spilling over. Recruiting troops for the Military in this state goes badly with many being opposed to waging an offensive war on their own brethren expecting them to eventually come back to the Fold. The Sumatran armed forces only manages to pull together 150,000 troops but the troops are well equipped and well supplied.

The First talks of the failure of the Soviet System to secure more Allies and Communist support abroad begins to take root in the Soviet union with some looking to re-organise the structure of the Soviet union in order to compete with the US and Federation.

The Nationalist Indonesian Federation gaining supplies, training and military support from the Federation of the Americas rises in public opinion of Reunifying Indonesia, and begins fortifying itself, as well as building up its Armed forces to nearly 200,000 taking advantage of the preferable Federation arms and training to bring upon even more Rapid growth of the Indonesians Armed forces successfully fielding an Air Force and Armoured corps as well.

The Kongolese National Army taking up its positions on the coast of the Congo and several interior States begin to launch offensives into all of the Kongo in order to form a singular Congo State. While successful in former Portuguese Congo they run into resistance of a Pro-French National Kongolese Alliance (NKA) being supplied directly out of the French colonies in Africa.

The French begin to see even more issues in Indochina as nationalist rebels once again rise up in Laos and Cambodia demanding their own nations.

France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed.

    • French North Africa (not including Algeria): Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity.
      • French Algeria: Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region.

Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria.
      • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begin.
      • French Indochina:Troops once more begin suppression campaigns in Indochina but the colonial administration grows tired of the continued fighting in the region and many military and administrative authorities in the colony demand that Paris come to a permanent solution. Paris' response is more troops and giving the administration a free hand in dealing with the problem. After years of negotiations and the Vietnamese agreeing to a possible French client state in the region the French decide that it is time to make the Vietnamese an associate state of the French Metropolia within the Union Francaise. The First Vietnamese elections are to be held in VIetnam in 1962 and French will reduce their presence in the region over the next two years. The VIetnamese State Army is created out of Vietnamese forces that served under the French banner. SAigon is made the capital of a united and democratic VIetnamese State, and local administration is handed over to a provisional council until after the elections. French Forces begin sending troops into the Laotian and Cambodian Jungles to deal with rebels in those areas, while moderate suppression of Vietnamese Communists continues. Paris, however, stipulates that Vietnam is still within the French Sphere and still a member of the Union Francaise.
      • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
      • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigalently over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
  • Romania: ​ We continue our expanding of economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Romanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia. We want an alliance with Hungary (Rejected, Hungary is neutral).
  • Western African Federation: We recruit more troops and militarise with their weapons. Indonesian Civil War still ongoing, but whether we join them, we need more logistics to our army to make a better chance to join the civil war. Unless we take our deal to help the nationalists. More railways, roads and even buildings will be built and modernized. The economy keeps growing up to our nation and infrastructure development begin to build
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life.

United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. The US navy near Borneo diverts half its fleet around Sulewasi to block off the channel between the island and Timor. These two, plust the fleet near Sumatra and the navies of the Philippines and Malaya, begin moving in towards the inner sea in an attempt to encircle the federation navy. The militaries in Kalimenten and Sulewasi continue to coordinate coalition attacks to take both islands. The State Department recognizes the governments of Sumatra and Indonesia, and organizes a team of economic and political experts to visit both states and help properly organize their new government and military. The GFRU also sets up training programs for both their economic and military infrastructure. New airbases are also built in northern Java.
  • Italy: It has come to the attention of military planners after the Italo-Yugoslav War that Italian soldiers are using equipment that needs to be updated. The largest concern is infantry weapons. Yugoslavia had access to old German StG 44s, while Italy had few assault rifles, and this had to be rectified. Research begins into a model of assault rifle, using captured Yugoslav StG 44s as a base, and research into a missile submarine continues, with the first prototypes entering testing in late April. Submarine construction continues to show promise, as 15 submarines have reached completion since August. Submarine production is lowered slightly to make way for production of fighter aircraft. The government knows that the military is not the only part of the country that needs improvement, though. Italy creates the Italian Space Program, with a base in Florence, and begins experimenting with rocket technology. Hopes are that Italy will be able to reach space by the 1980s. Investment in the economy continues.

Forces is northern Angola begin to build fortifications and defences at the border to counter any possible spill over fighting from groups that are getting too ambitious.' In more positive news huge off shore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporations, along with this is an increased emigration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Construction on the Fuji Speedway and the Suzuka Circuit is finished and both tracks are open. Two national race events are also established, the Super Formula and the All-Japan Formula Three Championship. Elections for the next Prime Minister begins.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation realizing a lack of American Ships in the Area diverts one of the Fleets to the Gap in the Line, with the Carrier Group Brasilia deploying into the Timor Gap. The Federation keeps the line open there with the Carriers Brasilia and Valquíria as well as the Escort carriers Vargas and Salvaçao and their attendant fleet of five cruisers, 30 destroyers 15 frigates, and the 20 attack submarines. The Federation also redeploys nearly 300 aircraft from headquarters in Java to New Guinea, Sulawesi and many of the smaller islands with airfields show deployments as well with many aircraft carrying anti ship weaponry being deployed. With the redeployment of other US naval assets the force consisting of Carrier Group Bolivar which comes around the Indian Ocean Side of Sumatra deploying patrols and beginning to establish Air Dominance along the Indian ocean coast. The Federation keeps the Supercarrier Saõ Paulo in the Interior Indonesian Sea moving it closer to the Java-Sumatran straights as the Federation begins to gear up for a large offensive to catch the remaining US fleet near the Straight between two naval forces and a well armed land army. The Javan offensive is set to begin as soon as the Nationalists are ready. The Sulawesi Forces are also re-organized and dug into their half of the Island with forts and trench positions with forces next to be deployed into an effective counter offense with mobile capacity. The Federation also seeing a major shift in how it must play its politics withdraws its Peacekeepers from Albania restoring the nation as a Democratic government. The Supercarrier Hades and its carrier group are Redeployed to the Pacific with the Federation sending the Supercarrier Hades and the New Modern Battleship Uñiao alongside eight Cruisers, 15 Destroyers ten frigates, and Ten Attack submarines. This force is sent to Asia now With the Fleet being sent to Hawaii accompanied by a 10,000 man force from the Amphibious shock core. The Federation takes advantage of the Bulk of the Pacific fleet being in Indonesia and makes its presence known to the United States. The Federation begins further building of its new Destroyers and Frigates even a new Class of Cruisers being dropped into the mix as well. Alltogether nearly 30 new ships are constructed across the Federation and brough to respective naval Bases. The Federation continues to show major population growth and large amounts of industrial growth. The Federation begins more pushes to mobilize the reserve Forces. The Federation governments response to this, is the movement of the Supercarrier Lusitania to Cuba supported by nearly 300,000 soldiers. The Federation also in response to the US likely militarizing its nearby territory with nuclear weapons, deploys several strategic weapons as well as a large amount of Tactical weapons to the Island. The Federation begins deployment of more forces specifically to the Northern Federation States beginning a more obvious push to build up a large force in the North. The Federation makes a dedicated Counter-offensive on the Filipino Troops. The Federation deploys heavy Naval and Air Support to the Operation using nearby carriers and battleships detailed to the Offensive with nearly 500 aircraft taking place in the offensive. On top of this a large force of nearly 400 armored vehicles is detailed to the offensive as well with plans to blunt and wipe out the Filipino offensive and take at least half the northern part of the Island. This force is backed up by another 50,000 troops, reservists arriving from the Federation. The offensive takes places just Days after Filipino troops pull out leaving nearly 100,000 Federation troop to handle 20,000 US regulars. The offensive leads to a near capitulation of the US force with heavy artillery and air operations commencing. The Federation calls on the US force in Sulawesi to surrender threatening to bomb or attack any reinforcement/Evacuation convoy. The Federation launches its first satellite into space, with attempts of launching a man into space following in the next six months.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin bulding up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”. We send 10,000 troops to Bali to help the nationalist government.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Morrocan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 20,000. We begin moving inland as we are running out of land.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 40,000 Spaniards. We begin to seize land on the coast for inhabitation by Spaniards.
  • The United Kingdom: We ask to meet with France, the USSR, the USA and the FoA to discuss which nations should be allowed to own nuclear weapons and build them up because we believe that if every nation were to own an atom bomb it could be very catastrophic. MOD NEEDED - We again extend our offer to all European nations (including Communist and those in the Warsaw Bloc) to join the EU as permanent members and for the USSR to join as an observer. - MOD NEEDED We suggest making the Italian Space Program ia part of the EU and let all nations work together to advance each other's space programs. We suggest calling it the Allied European Space Exploration Programme. We continue to pressure the Netherlands into changing their government and other nations in theEUollow emargoing them due to one of the clauses of our alliance. We also continue to grow economically and expand both our navy and air force.Can one of the mods please tell me if the Greek Civil War is over or not)
    • Greek civil war is over in favor of the Communists. -Feud
    • Uhm you can't enforce that offer onto your fellow EU members. You can't just say it's gonna happen.
    • Italian Dip: We agree to make the Space Program part of the EU, though we propose calling it the Space Program of United Europe, and request that the main administrative center remain in Florence. As for the embargo, I guess we just never got around to it, what with the whole World War 3 thing. We embargo the Netherlands until they democratize.
  • Syria: We continue rebuild Syria from our war of Independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow the US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program but are wiling to stop it if necessary with goals of making one in the late 80s. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 15,000 troops.
  • Philippines: We still continue to use the economic aid from America, devoting them to our modernisation effort. We invest millions of dollars in our textile, steel and petrochemical industries, which are flourishing like never before. We are determined to keep our place as the second most prosperous Asian country in terms of gross domestic product per capita. We continue to fund a massive construction project that will link all its major islands. We also improve our already large agricultural base. We see our commodity trade volume rise as we continue to promote our export-oriented modernisation strategy. We continue our invasion of East and North Kalimantan and South Sulawesi with a total of 100,000 troops. We request military aid from America.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation secretly offers to help the Philippines economically and militarily if they withdraw from the Indonesian conflict.
    • Philippines Dip: We agree to the offer, and quickly withdraw all our troops from Indonesia. We also would like to trade with them more.
    • Federation Dip: Agreed as well.
  • Israel:Research regarding nuclear weapons continues, with scientist searching for the quickest way to successfully build a nuke, and having found that way beginning to produce one. A new government campaign start encouraging the people to reproduce. Population stands at 3.3 million. The second season of the Israeli Football League (IFL) concludes, with FC Jerusalem winning the League. Three new clubs apply for membership, FC Gaza, Hapoel Beirut and SC Ramallah. Only FC Gaza and Hapoel Beirut actually get membership this season, SC Ramallah has to wait for another season. The Democratic Indonesian government is recognized by the State. Talks with the French continue. The State of Israel enjoys NATO membership. The State of Israel SECRETLY requests that France shares with it a nuclear weapon.
  • Yemen: More economic and infrastructure work is done as the nation focuses on building itself into a modern nation. We relax sharia law to allow women to work in any job as long as it is in a women only work place. We start constructing factories and power plants.

1961.5

Direct Federation conflict with US forces surprises many people on both sides, with various anti-war protests breaking out in both countries,

The Republic of Sumatra solves some of its internal democratic issues allowing many of the Democratic forces in the country to unify with the Republics government. This Strong sense of liberty is backed up by a defensive need to fight with many in the Republic. The Republics forces are increased to 250,000 and begins to see some decent leadership within its Junior officer ranks. The Republic sees nearly 60,000 troops sent to secure Kalimintan

The Nationalists manage to bring to bear a total of nearly 300,000 troops with nearly 50,000 being deployed defensively to Sulawesi. The Nationalists also begin the construction of strong fortifications around the Sumatran Java backing up Federation forces with another 50,000 troops. The Remaining 200,000 troops are spread out as a rapid reaction force to deal with new threats quickly as they arise.

The Whole of Kalimintan officially falls to the Republic of Sumatra and her Allies making up somewhat for the "Sulawesi Disaster" which has trapped nearly 20,000 US troops.

Laos and Cambodia both field nearly 60,000 troops a piece as they begin operations to fully free themselves from the French.

The Kongolese Civil war takes another Turn as Communists under the MPLA achieve stunning victories against advances of the Nationalists and Pro-French forces in the Kongo.

The Second Mexican Empire begins to work up some of its military power is it begins to see a potential conflict between the US and the Federation erupting into a larger war.

Canada seeing Mexican mobilization mobilizes some of its forces as well vowing to Aid the United States in any war in this hemisphere.


  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles, and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly. This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. Vice President Adlai Stevenson conducts a world tour to meet with all the important officials of Europe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push towards desegregation. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigration. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. Half of the naval force near Sumatra moves north into the channel between Sumatra and Borneo, aiding the navy of Malaysia to secure the islands of Bengka-Belitung. Coalition forces in Kalimenten organize the construction of airbases and fortifications in the south. Bombers and fighter planes cross between the islands, hoping to pick out some of the Federation navy. The navy near Sulawasi moves back north to a more defensible position near Goronato, using transport ships and one escort carrier to withdraw the remaining US forces from the island. A third fleet (with a number as much to bring me up to where I was before) is deployed to secure the Maluku islands, aiding the half fleet there to cut off the Federation navy from that channel. En route to this position, the navy deploys 90,000 troops to take West Papua, landing at the mouth of the Pulau river and marching north. The troops recovered from Sulawasi are trasported to help secure Papua. Seeing the Philippines pull out of the war, the US asks Australia if they would aid to keep the Federation out of SE Asia, as well as offering to give humanitarian aid to Timor should they be unintentioanlly invovled in the conflict (Mod response).
    • ​US Dip: We strongly condemn the creation of offensive nuclear missiles in the Caribbean, considering that the nuclear missiles in the Virgin Islands were purely defensive.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask the USA and other superpowers to help stop the buildup of nuclear weapons in hostile and potentially dangerous nations. We also would like the USA to know that, as our greatest ally, we will aid them if war does occur between it and the Federation.
  • 'Western African Federation: 'We recruit more men into the military. We decide to develop weapons, building ships and airplanes. The roads and railways continue to build for an transport. Modernization of the buildings continue to modernize. At Sulawasi we support US to gain more power because we're joining democrats. The missiles, tanks and armoured army vehicles will be planned to the future.
  • The United Kingdom: After learning of possible war in the Americas the British Army begins sending troops that were formerly in Southeast Asia to the West Coast of the USA (except for those that are still on the coast of the Republic of China). Anti-Netherlander propaganda begins and many British celebrities, including the Queen herself, participate in them. In unrelated news Queen Elisabeth II visits Canada in September and plans on visiting the United States in early January of next year. We also accept Italy's terms and create a space program that will include all members of the EU and be housed in Florence. (will add more later)
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Construction on the Fuji Speedway and the Suzuka Circuit is finished and both tracks are open. Two national race events are also established, the Super Formula and the All-Japan Formula Three Championship. Elections for the next Prime Minister ends, and results are in. Suehiro Nishio from the Democratic Socialist Party manages to win the election and becomes the new Prime Minister. The Formula One is established, and invites any nations with racing circuits to be nominated to be used for the first Formula One racing event that will take place in 1963.
  • Queen's Mandate of Sudanese Uganda (British East Africa): A week long festival has been made to commemorate the state as a new autonomous mandate and festivities are being prepared, decorations and music fill the streets and economy is boosted a bit from tourists visiting during the festival. The governmental building is making progress and preparations are being made for a new planned city of Khartoum, money has been invested and work has taken action. The building is said to be finished in 1969.
  • Yemen: More economic and infrastructure work is done as the nation focuses on building itself into a modern nation. We relax sharia law to allow women to work in any job as long as it is in a woman-only work place. We start constructing factories and power plants. (Posted by AH28 for Person)
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occurs with the creation of a national guard made up entirely of Portuguese Africans (it numbers 3000 men) as well as military restructuring and replacing of outdated equipment. Control of the military is transferred to Portugal as per the self governance agreement. The colonial government also begins encouraging emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. Forces is northern Angola begin to build fortifications and defences at the border to counter any possible spill over fighting from groups that are getting too ambitious. In more positive news huge off shore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporations, along with this is an increased emigration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields.
  • Romania: ​We continue our expanding of economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Romanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia. We restore the monarchy, with Michael the First being given back the crown.
    • German Dip: We offer an alliance and a trade agreement.
    • Romanian Dip: We agree.
  • Saudi Arabia (sorry I haven't posted in so long, I've been busy): We see an economic boom, and continue to focus on the growth of our population and industry. With our economic boom, we continue to invest in industrialization, so that we can have four major cities in Mecca, Riyadh, Jeddah, and Dammam. We begin to influence Qatar (Turn One of Six). King Saud, while seeming to lose power and spending money too luxuriously, is forced to abdicate in favor of his brother, Faisal, who becomes the new king. In response to the growing tensions with the United States, we ask that both sides try to meet and settle our differences, again favoring peace over all, and secondly stopping Communism, feeling that the United States nd their Allies can be helpful if we work together.
  • Germany: Reconstruction is finished in the East and the economy is improved in the West. We begin a massive construction project to improve and expand the the autobahn into western Germany. We open up new universities across the nation and send some scientists to assist the EU space program. Funds and arms are sent to the Republicans in Indonesia and we call for reductions in nuclear arsenals across the world.
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. Troops are withdrawn from Germany and from the Caucasian front as a sign of good faith to negotiations. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate. France agrees to the Budapest terms. More military hardware is produced - in particular APC's, tanks and fighters - as older models are phased out. Worries over the decline of Dutch stability sparks a debate in Paris about whether the French state should intervene in the lowlands and establish a right wing government.French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democraticly elected government or face French intervention. De Gaulle promises to liberate the Netherlands once more from Nazi oppression and troops are sent to the border along with two armored divisions. Apart from that Paris declares an embargo on the Netherlands and opts to close off their access to the North Sea asking the British to cooperate with this motion. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory.
      • French North Africa (not including Algeria): Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity.
        • French Algeria: Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria.
        • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begin.
        • French Indochina: Troops once more begin suppression campaigns in Indochina but the colonial administration grows tired of the continued fighting in the region and many military and administrative authorities in the colony demand that Paris come to a permanent solution. Paris' response is more troops and giving the administration a free hand in dealing with the problem. After years of negotiations and the Vietnamese agreeing to a possible French client state in the region the French decide that it is time to make the Vietnamese an associate state of the French Metropolis within the Union Francaise. The first Vietnamese elections are to be held in VIetnam in 1962 and French will reduce their presence in the region over the next two years. The VIetnamese State Army is created out of Vietnamese forces that served under the French banner. SAigon is made the capital of a united and democratic VIetnamese State, and local administration is handed over to a provisional council until after the elections. French Forces begin sending troops into the Laotian and Cambodian jungles to deal with rebels in those areas, while moderate suppression of Vietnamese Communists continues. Paris, however, stipulates that Vietnam is still within the French Sphere and still a member of the Union Francaise.
        • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
        • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We influence Andorra (Turn One of Six). We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin bulding up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Morrocan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 30,000. We begin moving inland as we are running out of land on the coast to make settlements of Inal, Bennichchab, Ninmjat, Merderdra, Tmeimichat, Akjoujt and the rest of the provinces of Dakhlet Nouadhibou, Inchiri and Trarza of 5000.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 50,000 Spaniards. We begin to seize land on the coast for inhabitation by Spaniards.
  • Italy: (Have we finished the missile sub yet?) Italy declares neutrality in conflicts in the western hemisphere, claiming they do not involve Italy. Experiments into the new assault rifle show promise, and ... (what's the procedure here?) Submarine production, while reduced, still adds an additional nine submarines to the navy, and the new fighter production adds 100 to the air force. Plans are to increase the number of fighter aircraft to parity with bombers. Italy welcomes the EU to the Space Program, and hopes that Europe can get to space together. In a secret room, the king and many military and diplomatic officials begin discussing the situation of Europe as it stands. A decision is reached that could change history (though probably won't, knowing the power players involved). A group of spies is secretly sent to the Netherlands to begin the slow subversion of the Fascist government in favor of a democratic government. France and the UK are secretly informed of this action, though not of the fact that it is secretly planned to be a suzerainty of Italy. (Unless the mods decide that's not a thing that can happen)
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program but are wiling to stop it if necessary with the goal of making one in the late 80s. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 16,000 troops.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to see solid economic growth with natural gas becoming more prominent as a fuel source. A few nuclear power plants has also been constructed and tested near Rio de Janeiro, in the Amazons, as well as one in Santiago Chile. The Federation sees continued advancement of its heavy and light industries, with a Large military industrial complex, as well as a huge consumer manufacturing sector with cars, electronics equipment and various other heavy and light consumer goods being built by Federation manufacturing. Over the past year and a half the capital San Salvación has seem immense numbers of immigrants. Of nearly ten million displaced persons evicted from their slums in the coastal cities, nearly three million immigrate to the San Salvación area with satellite cities, suburbs and even middle class and trade jobs open up in droves. The Federation continues deployment of space satellites for testing and conducts a rocket launch out of the Guyana Space center publicizing the First man in Space Juan Cordiero. This is lauded as a scientific accomplishment of the Federation taking the lead in a space exploration movement headed by the newly created Federal Aeronautics and Space Administration (FASA). The Federation continues to build new ships with the Carrier Indepencia, A heavily modified Sao Paulo Class adding new anti-air systems as well as experimental technological upgrades. The Pacifica class supercarrier is founded on this with the Supercarrier set to be fit to send to a theatre of war or deployment within two months. This ship immediately gathers 20 destroyers, seven frigates, five cruisers, and ten attack submarines from nearby naval bases and pushes north to Cuba. With the US invading West Papua, the Federation takes the final stretch of territory in Sulawesi, turning over control to the nationalists immediately afterwards. The Federation begins a more noticeable movement of force to West Papua moving the Sulawesi forces to West Papua landing the Forces near the southern portions of the Island deploying with their armor complements from Sulawesi as well as the air compliments provided by nearby airbases. The Federation seeing the situation get potentially worse calls up another 50,000 troops to Indonesia with the force beginning the retaking of Kalimintan supported by nearly 300 armored vehicles and at least 450 aircraft (A lot of islands and territories could mutually support each other within decent range.) The Kalimintan offensive followed by the Defense of West Papua puts the military force in Java under extreme pressure. Its decided instead that heavy artillery strikes and air power would soften up the enemy in Java and get a normal offensive going. The Federation also conducts a flyover of Hawaii with a single squadron evacuating American airspace each time before jets could intercept them. The Federation begins moving near Hawaii using the lack of naval presence to give the US a real problem to worry about.
    • The US warns the Federation that an attack on US soil will be met with the same force that was dealt to Russia during the Chinese Civil War
  • Philippines: Our economy still continues to use the economic aid mainly from two countries America and the Federation. Most of the aid is devoted to our modernisation effort. The government invests millions of dollars in our textile, steel and petrochemical industries, which are flourishing like never before. The population are determined to keep our place as the second most prosperous Asian country in terms of gross domestic product per capita. The government continues to fund a massive construction project that will link all its major islands. Agricultural output per capita is improved. The commodity trade volume rise as the government continues to promote their export-oriented modernisation strategy, and the country gain access to a new consumer market; the Federation.
  • Israel: Research regarding nuclear weapons continues, with scientists searching for the quickest way to successfully build a nuke, and having found the way beginning to produce one. A new government campaign starts encouraging the people to reproduce. Population stands at 3.4 million. The third season of the Israeli Football League (IFL) starts. Talks with the French continue. The State of Israel enjoys NATO membership. The State of Israel SECRETLY requests that France shares a nuclear weapon with it.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military, and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. With the US. Invasion of West Papua, the military swiftly dispatched 70,000 troops to defend West Papua, raising an additional 15,000 from the local populace, and positioned the artillery to assume a defensive position. Concurrently, the disaster at Kalimintan was not taken lightly, and 120,000 soldiers were directed to Kalimintan, with Makassar and Palu utilized as launching pads for an Invasion of Balikpapan, hoping to liberate the island from Democratic control. The Invasion, however, was merely a ruse, hoping to divert Democratic attention from a simultaneous invasion of Democratic Java, involving 30,000 troops and the majority of the Indonesian Armoured Corps units. The Indonesian navy, meanwhile, attempted a direct blockade of the Sunda Straits, hoping to cut off supplies to the Democratic units operating in Java. The Air force similarly conducted air raids upon Southern Sumatra, as a means to prevent massive concentration of Democratic forces at a single position, who could inturn be shipped to Java by the US Navy.

1962.0

The Federation and US forces continue to fight it out in Indonesia with nearly 150,000 between the Nationalists, and Federation forces holding in West Papua, the Federation invasion of Kalimintan starting, and a massive air war brewing over the Java Straits at US, Nationalist, Federation, and Sumatran aircraft all strike at targets within the others territory. The Ferocious air battles turn into some of the largest air battle since WW2.

The subsequent offensives by the US and Federation into West Papua, and Kalimintan immediately seize territory. The US, however, meets Federation and Nationalist forces around their beachhead. The Federation meets similar resistance on Kalimintan with Militia and Democratic forces giving heavy losses up to hold territory.

The Republic of Sumatra (also now the Democrats as they are unified with Sumatra) begins a major shipment of nearly 150,000 troops to Kalimintan digging in to hold the southern portion of the Island. The Sumatran forces also see notable increase to nearly 400,000 as they begin to reinforce a perimeter further back on the Sumatran coast rather than in Java.

The US and Federation see the unsung war being fought but both governments still refuse to outright declare open war on the other.

The Arab League begins to show a movement to centralize some of its policies in order to create are more open bordered policy in the area and show some unity.

Algos for some of this stuff will come tonight. -Feud

  • Romania: We continue expanding our economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated against. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Romanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia. We restore the monarchy, with Michael the First being given back the crown.
  • Western African Federation: We continue to expand infrastructure and military. The African troops recruited in the military. Some plans building fortresses and bunkers may go well planned. In Asia, US and Federation battle in Indonesia. More nationalists but from us it's unlikely to join the war. The government sees priority over economy to expand, to make more income solid.
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles, and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly, with sub-genres spreading out encouraging compassion and philosophy. This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. Vice President Adlai Stevenson conducts a world tour to meet with all the important officials of Europe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push towards desegregation. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. The US fleet near Maluku close in to blockade part of West Papua, attempting to sink any convoy ships near that coast. The fleet near Kalimenten moves south in the channel again and positions just south of Sulawasi, half-way between the Federation's two fleets. Anti-naval battaries are built on Maluku islands to further deter Federation navies there. An additional 70,000 troops land in northern Papua and push south to meet with the other forces. Rows of anti-aircraft battaries are built in Northern Java and southern Kalimenten, as well as fortified cannons to prevent naval landing. Some ships, including a carrier, three submarins and two destroyers, are withdrawn from Sumatra to be stationed in Hawaii. Timor is still asked if they need any aid, and Australia is asked to enter the war. Offensive nukes in the Caribbean continue to be condemned.
    • British Diplomacy: The British Commonwealth and the United Kingdom will stand by your side in the war against the Federation.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continue throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. In more positive news huge off shore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporations, along with this is an increased emigration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields. The national elections take place after a hiatus period due to the instability in the Congo, with National Union once again forming a majority government. However, they have been reduced down to 19 seats, with the Angolan National Alliance winning 11. To appease native tribes we allow three new seats in the parliament to be created. These are filled by independent representatives of the largest tribes.
  • The United Kingdom: Our ships that were moved to the West Coast of the USA are moved to Hawaii so that the US will not have to fear the island chain being taken by the Federation. We ask all Commonwealth Nations to aid and join (MOD NEEDED) on the side of the United States in what many British Journalists have begun calling World War IV (which refers to the events in Southeast Asia, the Netherlands and the Americas). Anti-Netherlander propaganda continues. Queen Elisabeth II visits Ottawa, Canada and plans on visiting the USA this fall. The UK begins secretly sending spies and one hundred special ops workers that are part of the United Forces into the Netherlands; there they meet with the Italian spies and begin planning a coup to overthrow the corrupt regime that controls the land. The British Representatives in the EU request that all European nations, especially those in the Warsaw Bloc and even the USSR, join with full or partial (observer) membership in the EU (MOD NEEDED). We also are working with other members of the EU and are prepared to launch our first satellite by Winter of this year.
  • FFS, why do you think you can just say that the Communists can join? Your fellow EU members didn't agree to that. Stop acting as if you're the boss of the EU.
  • Well, most of the EU members are inactive and France and I agreed that those on the Warsaw Bloc should be allowed to join but if you have a problem with it then I'll set up an EU meeting and we can discuss it there. Besides, if the nations did opt to join then ALL members would vote on the nation's membership and you could've voiced your opinion there. Also, please do not use bad language.
  • Sorry for the words.
  • Increasingly threatened by the Arab League's centralization, Kurdistan offers mutual defence pacts to Yemen and Oman, sweetening the deal with subsidized oil offers to the former. Kurdistan offers Iran a mutual defence pact, with both going to war if the other is attacked by the Arabs or if one of the Arab states attempts to close the Strait of Hormuz. (Mod Response, Please)
  • Italy: The missile submarine model reaches completion and the assault rifle enters testing. Reinforcements for Italian spies arrive, and those already in the Netherlands meet with British spies and the United Forces units, and begin discussing plans, omitting the now-abandoned plot to de facto colonize the country. Submarine production is shifted to the new missile subs when they are confirmed to work, leaving the last five of the old model to finish production before the shift completes. Another 100 fighters are added to the air force, though problems are beginning to show. The big one is the amount of fuel they would need. So, Italy offers to trade for oil with Yemen and Iran, offering to allow the other countries to determine how they are paid. We specifically do not tell the ambassador the stakes of the agreement, so he doesn't think he's under any pressure to complete the deal. We do tell him, however, to make it abundantly clear that the specific amount of their preferred good is to be jointly agreed upon. This point cannot be stressed enough. The government continues to invest in heavy industry and the economy, and returns on the investments begin to be seen in force. Industrial complexes are completed in Venice and Genoa, and the stock market begins a sudden and massive rise, investments having finally reached a critical mass, and tax revenue increases to match. With these newfound funds, the government sponsors the construction of railroads to link the peninsula. Italy continues to research rocketry with the rest of the EU Space Program (or whatever it was called). (qui tacet consentire videtur)
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin building up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”. Our 350,00 troops wil protect our borders.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Morrocan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 50,000. We begin moving inland as we are running out of land on the coast to make settlements of Inal, Bennichchab, Ninmjat, Merderdra, Tmeimichat, Akjoujt and the rest of the provinces of Dakhlet Nouadhibou, Inchiri and Trarza of 7500.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 60,000 Spaniards. We begin to seize land on the coast for inhabitation by Spaniards.
  • Queen's Mandate of Sudanese Uganda: The mandate has sent over 50,000 national guards over to fight in Indonesia to fight on the side of the United States on planes and boats. Sudanese journalists are recording the events of the "World War IV" and the governmental building in Khartoum is one-third complete.
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program but are wiling to stop it if necessary with the goal of making one in the late 80s. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 16,000 troops.
  • Siam: begins to reconstruct from the civil war. The Royal Guard begins to aid in the reconstruction. The government begins more democratic reforms as the rights to bear arms and fair trial l laws are passed. The military stands at 49,000.
  • Republic of the Philippines: Anti-American protests occurs in all its major cities, most protesters protesting that the Philippine struggle for independence has not yet ended, and to achieve full independence they must get rid of all influence from the United States. On December 22nd, a coup d'état led by General President Elizabeth Bayabos and supported by most of the population overthrew the former government and established a nationalist military junta that seeks closer relations with the Federation. He begins the massive expulsion of American nationals. The government invests millions of dollars on its underdeveloped military, though a large portion of the budget still goes to the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. The withdrawal of American economic aid does not affect our economy since the Federation already sends a decent amount of money to us. Our textile, steel and petrochemical industries are still flourishing, and our trade volume rises.
    • Romanian Dip: We condemn this action.
    • Philippines Dip: President Elizabeth Bayabos denounces the Romanian government.
    • British Diplomacy: We remind you that the American forces are the ones who saved you from Japan during WWII. The United States has protected you for the past score years of this century so turning your back on them would be a big mistake. We also declare the new regime of the Philippines to illegitimate and state that if further aggression towards the USA continues then we will reclaim the former Malaysian land we sold to the Philippines.
    • Romanian Dip: We invite the exiled Filipino government officials to make a government in exile in Bucharest. King Michael of Hohenzollern and Chancellor Gheorghiu Dej denounce the Filipino government.
    • Philippines Dip: We would like to remind the British that the Americans had lengthened our struggle for independence by decades and have killed thousands of our kind during the Philippine--American war. We also further denounce the Romanian, British, and former Philippine government, deeming them as the enemies of the people. We demand other countries to recognise our legitimacy.
    • US Dip: We do not withdraw economic aid, and although the expulsion of American citizens is condemned, we seek reconcilliation with the new Filippino government.
    • Israeli Dip: The State of Israel laughs at the Philippine demand to be recognized, and simply sends a message saying that a government that has to demand recognition is no government at all. It denounces the regime and does not recognize it.
  • Yemen: More economic and infrastructure work is done as the nation focuses on building itself into a modern nation. We relax sharia law to allow women to work in any job as long as it is in a woman-only work place. We start constructing factories and power plants. (Posted by AH28 for Person)
  • Yugoslavia: We would like Greece, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Romania, Hungary and East Germany to create an Eastern European Space Agency (EESA) and work together on space. Our admit ion is by the early 70s to send a man to space and by the end of the decade sent a man on the moon. We would also like all of them nations to woek on the Eastern European Nuclear Program and hopefully we can develop a bomb by the early 70s. We continue to work on our nuclear program. We build our infrastructure and economy. We build motorways to connect the country. We expand our cities by building houses. We build a few skyscrapers in our major cities. We would like to buy Albania from the Federation for a prize they can choose.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask Yugoslavia to join the EU as a permanent or observing member if they choose and, if they join, we will not require that they join the European Union's space programme but continue to work in the EESA.
    • Romanian Dip: We have our own agreements with France, but we are happy to join. However, we want to stay independent.
    • British Diplomacy: Romania are you a permanent member of the EU or still an observer. I'm just checking to make sure I have things right on the EU page.
    • Romanian Dip: We are an observer at the moment but we wish full membership.
  • Poland: Poland joins EESA. In order to suppress the anti-government protests in Poland, the head of state introduced martial law. At the same time, while recognizing the need for reform, the President starts reform. Approved private small and medium-sized businesses are allowed to exist with these reforms.created the post of the President of Poland, who is elected by all the Polish people. Elections are scheduled for next year.
  • British Diplomacy: We ask Poland to join the EU as a permanent or observing member if they choose and, if they join, we will not require that they join the European Union's space programme but continue to work in the EESA.
  • German Dip: We offer Poland an alliance and Free trade agreement.
  • Germany: Reconstruction is finished in the East and the economy is improved in the West. We begin a massive construction project to improve and expand the the autobahn into western Germany. We open up new universities across the nation and send some scientists to assist the EU space program.We call for reductions in nuclear arsenals across the world.
  • Israel: Research regarding nuclear weapons continues, with scientists searching for the quickest way to successfully build a nuke, and having found the way beginning to produce one. A new government campaign starts encouraging the people to reproduce. Population stands at 3.4 million. The third season of the Israeli Football League (IFL) concludes, with Maccabi Tel Aviv winning. Sporting Ramallah is admitted into the League, alongside Sporting Tel Aviv. Talks with the French continue. The State of Israel enjoys NATO membership. The State of Israel SECRETLY requests that France shares a nuclear weapon with it. The State requests EU membership, pointing out not only its close ties, but also the fact that it is much closer to the EU members than any of the Communist Eastern European nations.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives.

  • The United Kingdom: The 1962 European Union Meeting is taking place in Rome. All members of the EU are urged to come vote on very important matters. After helping to safely secure Hawaii we continue to build up our army and move the British Navy to the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico although we (and the British Commonwealth) will not be officially declaring war on the Federation and Mexico until the USA does so. The area of Sabah is reclaimed by British forces and Borneons with very little resistance and readmitted into British Borneo. We also recognise the democratic Indonesian government as the sovereign and only rightful ruler of Indonesia.
    • Philippines Dip: You sir, are metagaming. You cannot just say that you claimed Sabah.
    • Note from mod: An algo will deside whether you succeed to take Sabah, but this is Philippine territory, not Indonesia, so I fail to see how this brings you in the Indonesian conflict. -Nate
    • US Dip: We ask the British navy to help secure the inner sea of Indonesia.
  • Western African Federation: We continue to expand our military and infrastrcture. We continue to build more buildings, fortresses and bunkers. More fortifications can be built for a defense. The ships and more artillery could be constructed.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to see solid economic growth with natural gas becoming more prominent as a fuel source. A few nuclear power plants has also been constructed and tested near Rio de Janeiro, in the Amazons, as well as one in Santiago Chile. The Federation sees continued advancement of its heavy and light industries, with a Large military industrial complex, as well as a huge consumer manufacturing sector with cars, electronics equipment and various other heavy and light consumer goods being built by Federation manufacturing. Over the past year and a half the capital San Salvación has seem immense numbers of immigrants. Of nearly ten million displaced persons evicted from their slums in the coastal cities, nearly three million immigrate to the San Salvación area with satellite cities, suburbs and even middle class and trade jobs open up in droves. The Federation continues deployment of space satellites for testing and conducts a rocket launch out of the Guyana Space center publicizing the First man in Space Juan Cordiero. This is lauded as a scientific accomplishment of the Federation taking the lead in a space exploration movement headed by the newly created Federal Aeronautics and Space Administration (FASA). The Federation continues to build new ships with the Carrier Indepencia, A heavily modified Sao Paulo Class adding new anti-air systems as well as experimental technological upgrades. The Pacifica class supercarrier is founded on this with the Supercarrier set to be fit to send to a theatre of war or deployment within two months. This ship immediately gathers 20 destroyers, seven frigates, five cruisers, and ten attack submarines from nearby naval bases and pushes north to Cuba. With the US invading West Papua, the Federation takes the final stretch of territory in Sulawesi, turning over control to the nationalists immediately afterwards. The Federation begins a more noticeable movement of force to West Papua moving the Sulawesi forces to West Papua landing the Forces near the southern portions of the Island deploying with their armor complements from Sulawesi as well as the air compliments provided by nearby airbases. The Federation seeing the situation get potentially worse calls up another 50,000 troops to Indonesia with the force beginning the retaking of Kalimintan supported by nearly 300 armored vehicles and at least 450 aircraft (A lot of islands and territories could mutually support each other within decent range.) The Kalimintan offensive followed by the Defense of West Papua puts the military force in Java under extreme pressure. Its decided instead that heavy artillery strikes and air power would soften up the enemy in Java and get a normal offensive going. Battlegroup Brasilia is pulled back somewhat, and links up with Battlegroup Bolivar, which sets up a mutual support chain across Indonesias seas and air space forcing the US Fleets to have to contend with the full might of the Federations naval assets in Indonesia if it wishes to take on a fleet. This mutual support chain helps keep many supply routes open in Indonesia.
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles, and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly, with sub-genres spreading out encouraging compassion and philosophy. This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. Vice President Adlai Stevenson conducts a world tour to meet with all the important officials of Europe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push towards desegregation.

Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. The navy near Maluku begins to openly engage the Federation fleet in the waters between Sulawasi and West Papua, using the batteries on the smaller islands as cover. At the same time, the two remaining navies close in from two directions on the inner sea, with the intention to completely sink the Federation fleet there. Two destroyers are left to guard the Sumatra-Java strait, using the massive anti-naval batteries built up on either side of the channel to prevent any enemy ships from passing safely through. On Papua, the two military forces push westward on either side of the central mountains, using the Baliem valley as a temporary base. They work their way to meet up at the western end of the island, fighting against any Indonesian forces they encounter. The northern force is bolstered with an additional 30,000 troops. More fortifications are built on Kalimenten, Sumatra, and Northern Java.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation.
  • Jordan: We finish our parliament for Jordan. We also begin to work on nuclear weapons with a goal to create our first nuke in the late 90s. We also agree to join the Arab League.
  • Romania: We continue expanding our economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated against. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Romanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia.

We compete against the Arab League for the largest military and offer Israel, Kurdistan and Turkey a request to join a new alliance. The Shah declares himself the Shanshah and forms the Imperial Navy. Tree parties sprout up in Tehran: the Communist Party, The Democratic Party and the Union Party. We open Tehran University.
  • Queen's Mandate of Sudanese Uganda: We send a fleet over to Indonesia and it bombs and sinks some of the Federation of America's navy. We send down Sudanese-Ugandan soldiers in Indonesia fights with the side of the United States. The Sudanese-Ugandan president, Sudanese man Ibrahim Abboud (presidency switches from Sudanese people to Ugandan people) is preparing to visit the United Kingdom to visit the Queen and give a thank you gift and visit Indonesia to view the battle.

  • Republic of the Philippines: A rape incident involving a dozen American troops in Subic causes anti-American sentiment to surge even further. President Elizabeth Bayabos demands the expulsion of all American troops, but at the request of the American government, would still allow non-military Americans to stay. Due to recent tensions with the British, the government increases its military expenditure to 3% of its gross domestic product. She still continues the modernisation effort and the construction of a highway system connecting all major settlements. She, however, changes focus to heavy industry, promoting the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. She also begins to improve overall infrastructure. She plan to increase trade with Japan and the Federation. The government still remains very anti-American, but they agree that they should continue trade relations with America.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio agrees to increasing trade with the Philippines.
    • Syrian Dip: We would like to trade with the Philippines and recognise the new Government.

We chastise Spain for supporting the nationalists. We also continue to request the transfer of troops from Portuguese West Africa to mainland Portugal. We strive to develop a monopoly over the newly-discovered oil fields off the coast.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. The US Invasion of West Papua was halted by a force of 85,000 soldiers, who were able to prevent any further US incursion into Indonesian territory. Meanwhile, a similar standstill was observed at Kalimintan. Keen not to lose the beachheads established in the deadly Invasion of Balikpapan, an additonal 25,000 soldiers were transported to Kalimintan. Meanwhile, however, the Indonesian forces were able to successfully penetrate into Democratic Java, securing a breakthrough into Democratic lines, though the Democratic forces were not completely pushed out of Java.

1963.0

US and Federation fleets continue to dodge each other as many of the smaller Indonesian islands now become a battleground for aircraft from either fleet, and Air forces based off the islands. At Risk of losing capital ships in the Fleet many ship capitans begin refusing to go through the death trap that is just island batteries, cruise missiles and a giant air war.

The US and Federation forces continue to stall out in West Papua with brutal fighting and terrain, as well as constant bombardment from both sides making advances costly and hard won. (Algo to come tonight)

The Cambodian forces increase to nearly 70,000 while the Laotian forces field nearly 100,000. However, their equipment remains outdated, and their ability to replace these numbers is questionable. (Tier Four of Quality and Quantity)

The full retaking of Java begins with Federation and Indonesian nationalist forces making two separate offensives, with a Federation force taking on the American one, while the Nationalists make a major move on the Sumatran Forces. (Algo will also come tonight)

A Patrol force from US and Federation navies come into contact near Sulawesi resulting in four destroyers being sunk on either side and the US and Federation both seeing extensive damage to one of their battleships (pick whichever one you wish, it's out of commission for a few months while it's being repaired.)

The Second Vatican Council opens up with Bishops from around the world, making extensive progress of bringing the Catholic Church into the modern world

Many anti-war protests begin to emerge from the Baby Boomers on college campuses in the US, the UK, and the Federation, calling for young adults to dodge the draft in a seemingly pointless conflict


France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. Troops are withdrawn from Germany and from the Caucasian front as a sign of good faith to negotiations. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate. France agrees to the Budapest terms. More military hardware is produced - in particular APC's, tanks and fighters - as older models are phased out. Worries over the decline of Dutch stability sparks a debate in Paris about whether the French state should intervene in the lowlands and establish a right wing government. To avoid the same issues as the other major powers France continues to promote a strong military culture in the homeland and amongst the whites in North Africa. French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democraticly elected government or face French intervention. De Gaulle promises to liberate the Netherlands once more from Nazi oppression and troops are sent to the border along with two armored divisions. Apart from that Paris declares an embargo on the Netherlands and opts to close off their access to the North Sea asking the British to cooperate with this motion. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory. The French continue their space program and also commit to supporting the EU program but keeping a separate one to the EU as to avoid dependency on EU science. Construction of The first French bullet train begins.

    • French North Africa (not including Algeria): Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity.
      • French Algeria: Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria.
      • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begin. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (mod response, please.)
      • French Indochina: Troops once more begin suppression campaigns in Indochina but the colonial administration grows tired of the continued fighting in the region and many military and administrative authorities in the colony demand that Paris come to a permanent solution. Paris' response is more troops and giving the administration a free hand in dealing with the problem. After years of negotiations and the Vietnamese agreeing to a possible French client state in the region the French decide that it is time to make the Vietnamese an associate state of the French Metropolis within the Union Francaise. The first Vietnamese elections are to be held in VIetnam in 1962 and French will reduce their presence in the region over the next two years. The VIetnamese State Army is created out of Vietnamese forces that served under the French banner. SAigon is made the capital of a united and democratic VIetnamese State, and local administration is handed over to a provisional council until after the elections. French Forces begin sending troops into the Laotian and Cambodian jungles to deal with rebels in those areas, while moderate suppression of Vietnamese Communists continues. Paris, however, stipulates that Vietnam is still within the French Sphere and still a member of the Union Francaise.
      • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
      • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles, and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly, with sub-genres spreading out encouraging compassion and philosophy.A protest in Berkely, California results in the shooting of multiple students, resutling in massive anti-establishment culture among the youth. Bob Dylan releases the song "Blowin' in the Wind". This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. Vice President Adlai Stevenson conducts a world tour to meet with all the important officials of Europe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push towards desegregation. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. The two naval forces in the inner sea continue to attack the Federation fleet from two sides. Seeing the Federation fleet near Maluku pull back to help the inner sea, the fleet engaged with it persues it into the sea. Forces in Kalimenten and Sumatra are prepared to be convoyed to help relieve Northern Java The forces in Java pull back to fortify just the regency of Pandeglang, and the fighting in Papua continues, with the intent of almost doubling the manpower there to overwhelm the Nationalists. The local Indonesian forces are allowed to push out the Nationalists from Kalimenten on their own.
    • Iran Dip: We offer to sell you a large amount of oil for 72 billion US Dollars.
    • US Dip: We will accept the deal on the condition of being allowed to station military bases in the Azerbaijan region.
    • Iran Dip: You may not station troops in Azerbaijan but you are welcome to station your fleet in the the Persian Gulf and deploy troops on our oil rigs.
  • Portugal: We continue to ensure Iberian nationalism does not take root in Portugal, though some small cells have begun to crop up. However, the general population continues to see them as crazy due to the media's frowning upon them, and these cells do not grow. In terms of economics, we expand trade and continue to take control of Portuguese West Africa's oil rig.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask you to join the European Union.
  • The United Kingdom: 1962 European Union Meeting is taking place. We continue the invasion of Sabah by sending 15,000 thousand troops as well as 70 jet fighters controlled by United Forces Pilots into the area (Can a mod please make the algo for this?). We ask all members of the EU and Commonwealth (especially Australia) to declare war, embargo, sanction or help fight against the Philippines (Mod Needed). The PM begins speaking at colleges around the country and raises the morale and draft numbers for a short time. We meet with Italy, Germany and France to discuss the situation in the Netherlands and we (The UK, only us, none of the other nations I just mentioned) declare that if the Netherlands does not change its Neo-Nazi ways by September of this year then we will begin a full scale invasion or coup and overthrow the current regime and make it a state under the EU until things are better there. We also move ships from the now secured Hawaiian Islands to Indonesia and form a naval blockade but we do not engage in the fighting in Indonesia. We ask Australia and the USA to help fortify our blockade (Mod Needed).
  • You have no reason to invade the Philippines when your at the terminal end of keeping an empire alive (you still keep a lot but expanding it is out of the question, Even the French are losing territory.) Overall the blockade makes no sense either, please re-evaluate this. -Feud
    • The reason we have started a naval blockade is to aid the USA, our ally, so it makes perfect sense and Sabah will not become a part of the empire because now most members of the British parliament and the royal family are against imperialism and taking more land would not be favoured by the public. The British Empire is pretty much dead, anyway, so trying to revive it would be pretty unwise (it would dramatically weaken our economy, military strength, etc.) Besides we are only trying to reclaim it to weaken the corrupt Filipino government and help keep them out of the Indonesian conflict by distracting them. When WWIV is over we will most likely give the land back to the Philippines if they have reformed. If not it will become a state under the European Union.
    • You lack the power projection, you can send some forces, but if you get involved its tantamount to declaring war on a superpower when you're at your weakest since the 1500's. The UK would be able to send a relatively minor amount of ships, possibly something like 15-20, but nothing huge on the scale of the US or Federation. -Feud
    • Iran Dip: We offer to sell you a large amount of oil for 56 billion British Pounds.
    • British Diplomacy: We accept only if you'll allow us to build naval bases in the Persian Gulf and on the coast.
    • Iran Dip: You may.
    • French Dip: Paris requests that Britain hold off on the invasion and instead let the French handle the situation that is the neo-Nazi regime in the Netherlands, as troops have already been placed along the border for the better part of the last three years.
    • British Diplomacy: We are aware of the French, German, Italian and our own efforts to effectively shut down the nation so we will hold off an invasion for now but we do ask that when the invasion begins we are notified and we will attacks from the coast, you can attack from the South along with Italy (if they decide to join the invasion), and Germany from the East (if they decide to join). But we are only allowing a timetable of two years. If the Netherlands has not changed then we think an invasion should begin.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. In more positive news huge offshore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporation. Along with this is an increased migration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields. Protests break out in major cities across Angola with citizens demanding return control of the oil fields to the colony, despite this there has been no official statement yet from the colonial administration even with the increased support of nationalist groups. We ask Italy to protect us from Yugoslavia due to them threatening to invade.
  • Romania: We continue expanding our economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated against. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Aromanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia. We restore the monarchy, with Michael the First being given back the crown.
  • Yugoslavia: We demand that Romania stops supporting democratic rebels now otherwise we'll start an invasion of Romania. We build our military. We ban Romania out of the EESA. We invite more Eastern European countries to join the EESA like Greece, Bulgeria and Hungary.
    • ​Romanian Dip: May I just say that I am in NATO? Yeah, good luck. We do not fear you and warn you.
    • Yugoslavian Dip: Reminds that we are allied to Russia which could easily crush you like an ant. We would like Russia and all of Warsaw Pact members to begin an invasion of Romania due to them aiding rebels in our countries.
    • British Diplomacy: We'd like to remind Yugoslavia that Romania is a de facto member of the European Union. A declaration of war against our ally will lead to your undoing so if I were you I'd be very careful about throwing that around.
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program but are wiling to stop it if necessary with the goal of making one in the late 80s. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 35,000 troops.
  • 'Jordan: We begin to work on our standing army. We also work on our economy. Jordan also declares that we are going to start an organization called UMS, or United Muslim Scientists, in order to work on cures for diseases, better technology, etc. We ask if Syria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Turkey, Oman, Abu Dabi, Yemen and Afghanistan they would like to join the organization and build a branch on their country.
  • Poland: We allow Solidarność to hold free elections. Solidarność gets 63% of the votes and forms a government - appointed course of true socialism and democracy. Martial law because of the danger of Soviet invasion is not cancelled.
    • French Secret Dip: Seeing free elections occur in Poland, Paris approaches the government in Warsaw about the possibility of improving relations between the two states and about possible French support for a Polish break from Soviet dominance.
  • Republic of the Philippines: Anti-American sentiment surges even farther, and the family of the rape victim demands an apology from the American government for the rape incident last year. President Elizabeth Bayabos demands the expulsion of all American troops, but at the request of the American government, would still allow non-military Americans to stay. Due to recent tensions with the British, the government increases its military expenditure to 5% of its gross domestic product, they also purchase modern military technology from the Federation and other Allies. She still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. She monopolises several industries and established a capitalist centralised export-oriented planned economy. She also begins to improve overall infrastructure. She would like to increase trade with Japan and the Federation. We join the Indonesian conflict, deploying 100,000 troops.
  • Western African Federation: We continue to build more buildings, thus tanks and armoured army vehicles will be built as well. The economy expands and grows up its income, but to expect more profitable will increase its national currency. The industries will be planned to built somewhere in our nation. More recruitable troops join the army. Improvement of the infrastructure begins.
  • Yemen: We continue to build the economy and improve infrastructure. We keep working on an education system and try to reform the justice system to remove Shari law from our system. We hope to build a society and propose to Saudi Arabia that we join the war in the Indonesia to support the Federation.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues development of its new military equipment, updating aircraft, building new ones, and updating many vehicles as well. The Federation - in particular - shows great development of its Mechanized and Armored Forces into modern variants with some of the newer Variants sporting more accurate guns, better fire control, and other updated systems to make these vehicles much better at operating. Mirroring protests in California, the Federation sees a major protest in the University of Quito which ends in a shooting which kills five students, and injures another 12. Some anti-War music begins to take hold in the Federation as well with local and foreign anti-war music taking noticeable root. The Federation continues to see noticeable development of its industries with Aeronautics being noticeably more dynamic than before. Previously minor airports begin to see new investment and construction with the Federations Airline industry beginning to take off in a major way with the Saõ Paulo International Airport showing a massive increase in Air traffic as the Federation financial center and stock market (it's our New York) begins to take prominence. The Federation, however, does see noticeable economic slowdown as the considerable diverting of funds towards military spending slows down a lot of government investment and subsidies into other sectors. The Federation population particularly in Colombia and Southern Brazil continues to boom with newly opened settlement areas and subsidies promoting settlement and growth in these two areas, the Population reaches 178 million. With the American attempt to force a conflict the Federation throws up a massive air screen pairing up two of its fleets and a huge amount of the Java air group preventing decisive naval conflict. The Federation also arms the surrounding islands with anti-Ship missiles, and cruise missiles with any meaningful movement towards the Federations fleets in the Inner Sea being responded too with quick and devastating efficiency. This, however, does leave Federation troops in West Papua in a somewhat cut off state as a lower number of ships and supplied reaching Federation forces in West Papua forces them to consider retreating further down the Island. Colonel Alejandro Gonzales with standing orders to hold the Island manages to get a clear order from a superior in the homeland. In a show of defiance he continues to dig in raising dedicated defensive structures, using the advantage of the jungle to build up a large defensive line along the battle lines in West Papua before an American attack. Bunkers, anti air batteries, and a large amount of manpower is commited to holding the line with the 100,000 force commited to holding the line against the US forces. The Federation following the build up of defenses in West Papua brings another 30,000 troops from home but wishes to bring no more after this and moves them from the staging points on Java to Sulawesi. This movement to Sulawesi is immediately followed up by a supporting invasion of the northern Sumatran controlled portions of Kalimenten with the 50,000 invasion forces hitting Kalimenten heavily from the south but taking heavy casualties, and the Northern Force beginning their invasion with expressed attempts to link up in the middle. The Federation also continues its Offensives in Java beginning the Seige of Pandeglang as it commits nearly 150,000 troops to the offensive and nearly 1000 armored vehicles and 600 aircraft. Constant artillery bombardment is used to soften up or hurt defensive fortifications but is also used to demoralize American forces. The Federation uses its new cruise missiles mounted on ships and the Ballistic missile Submarine Amazonas to shell the city as well targeting anti-naval guns to pave the way for the Amphibious Shock Corps to begin landing operations as well to hit Pandeglang from the coast as well performing a full encriclement of the city. The Supercarrier Hades re-deploys from its threatening Hawaiian deployment to a supporting Role in West Papua with its 10,000 man Amphibious shock corps force in tow, with expressed orders to relieve pressure from the Federation garrison in West Papua. (I'll post ship numbers when I get home.)
    • Can you please respond to what I said in the UK section?
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. Nationalist units successfully penetrated into occupied Java, and with massive Federation reinforcements arriving, the city of Pandeglang is effectively placed under a seige. A simultaneous blockade was placed upon the Sunda Straits to halt the arrival of US or Sumatran aid to the seiged city. A total of 130,000 Indonesia troops, along with the majority of the Indonesian Armoured Corps, and Navy were dedicated to the incursion into Pandeglang. Meanwhile, with the situation in Southern Kalimantan having been reduced to an effective status quo, of the 320,000 Indonesian troops dedicated to the attack, 185,000 were hastely withdrawn and transported to the North Kalimantan city of Tarakan, hoping that the sudden attack would be unexpected for the Sumatran forces, and would significantly offer relief to Southern Kalimantan. The majority of the Indonesian Air Force was directed to Sulawesi, from where it conducted air strikes upon Northern Kalimantan, hoping to successfully capture Tarakan. Meanwhile, at Papua, 180,000 Indonesian troops and 130,000 Federation troops effectively kept the US at bay. To further prevent any major incursion into Papuan soil, Indonesian troops distributed armaments and anti-aircraft equipment amongst the local nationalist militias, hoping that the guerrilla tactics utilized by these forces would result in significant US losses, and would further alienate the local tribes against the Americans in case of retaliatory US airstrikes.

1963.5

The US and Federation slug it out in West Papua with heavy casualties being incurred by either side as in some cases brutal Hand to Hand combat takes place. The US forces make some meaningful gains towards pushing the Federation back but eventually run into the Federations Bunkers, and defensive fortifications stalling out the offensive for a time until resuming a few weeks later after strategy adjustments (algo coming for this battle)

The Seige of Pandeglang begins with Federation and US forces trading fire as a large air battle begins to take place, with forces from Sumatran air space keeping the Federation from keeping total air dominance over the battlefield.

The Sumatran forces fielding nearly 150,000 troops in the Pandeglang Province (not the city) and a large armored force but lacking in Air Cover due to the Federation keeping it bogged down in the Pandeglang city set up a mobile defense in order to combat the advancing Nationalists. The Nationalists with the bulk of their armored corps, and 130,000 troops commit to a large battle throughout the province with both sides steering well and clear of the obvious grudge fight in Pandeglang City between the US and Federation

The Filipino troops are directed by the Federation Supreme command to land in Sulawesi securing the island while Headquarters debates where to send the new support.

The State of Vietnam sees some moderate approval for France for its final policy of eventual retreat from Vietnam. Võ Nguyên Giáp leads the movement for democratic Vietnamese elections on a Socialist (not Communist) platform looking to improve the economy and lives of many Vietnamese

The Algerian war is finally unveiled to the French Public as the Peid Noir and French troops have been engaged in putting native Algerians down for years. While there is some public outrage towards this, the Pied-Noir in Algeria are able to justify their reprisals with the fact Algerians attacked them first, and that Algeria is a true part of France not just some colony.

The Gauntlet of anti-naval batteries in the Malukus, Sulawesi, Java and other islands makes fighting a naval battle in the area impossible forcing the Admiralty of the Federation and US to figure out how to redeploy its forces in response.

The South African Whites continues to see a large growth in the white population and ignore Nelson Mandela. The potential for an all out Race war in South Africa becomes apparent and its white led forces begin preparing for such an issue.

Martin Luther King Jr delivers his "I Have a Dream" speech in the cold weather of D.C with blowing snow and the cold weather adding drama to his speech. It's estimated that tens of thousands turn out for the speech forcing the US president to address the issue directly.

A Major Race riot occurs in Rhodesias capital but Former soldiers settling in the Rhodesian union help the White populace end the riot, but at the cost of nearly 300 lives from the Whites, and another 500 Black lives. The Underlying tensions here begin to show through but the Whites remain adamant.

  • Western African Federation: We begin to expand our military, and recruit 250 troops in our military. After the civil war of Indonesia, we're not surprised of Nationalist Indonesia. Meanwhile, we continue to improve our economy to grow up its more income. We continue to see industry keep continuing doing more expanding industries. More buildings and materials, such as structures the buildings will be built.
  • Yemen: We continue to build the economy and improve infrastructure. We keep working on an education system and try to reform the justice system to remove Shari law from our system. We send a full sized brigade (5000 troops) to Indonesia to support the Nationalists. We request that they fight under federation command and that they can also help be supplied by the Federation
  • The United Kingdom: 1962 European Union Meeting is still in session. We remind all members to vote on the new proposals and Sudanese-Uganda and other colonies that they are allowed to vote. The British invasion of the Sabah continues. 10,000 (the current pop. of the UK in this timeline is around 57 million with nearly 1.2 million in the service so I think this is a reasonable number) (the current pop. of the EU in this timeline is around 57 million with nearly 794,385 in the service) British troops come from China, British Myanmar, British Borneo and some stationed in Hong Kong move to the island of Borneo and continue the raid of Sabah. 30 of the ships used during WWIII that have been stationed on the coast of China are moved to British Borneo as well as 50 United Forces planes carrying missiles (The United Forces is a military organisation designed by the EU so they are not a part of the British army). We ask Australia to support our invasion of Sabah as well as the defensive in West Papau (mod needed since Australia is inactive). We expect Sudanese-Uganda and other territory in Africa to begin sending naval and air support (Sudanese-Uganda is still under British control since they did not sign the Queen's Mandate but asked for autonomy). We ask France to help us take Sabah and crush the corrupt Filipino government by sending support from Indochina. We again extend our offer to Portugal to join the European Union (Mod may be needed). Anti-Netherlander Propaganda continues. In unrelated news the UPSE (the EU space programme) launches its first satellite. (Will probably add more later but I dunno)
    • Burma was made independent a while ago, and overall the British cant field 1.2 million troops, the British populace and economy cant support more than 800,000 Even the French would struggle to field over a million right now. Please Re-adjust your numbers -Feud
    • Sorry I'll change it. By the way can you please tell me what year Burma gained independence because I don't remember that (plus they never signed the Queen's Mandate and that's the only way they could be independent.) Also can you make an algo for the invasion with the British and Commonwealth soldier numbers and tell me if Australia will aid me and if Portugal will join the EU?

Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly, with sub-genres spreading out encouraging compassion and philosophy. President John F. Kennedy is tragically shot by assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Adalai Stevenson is sworn in as the new President, and investigates the murder. Many common people suspect Oswald's Cuban connections, and some theorists accuse the Federation of orchestrating the murder. Meanwhile, in light of Dr. King's speech, Congress deliberates over an act to end segregation in America. The Rolling stones and Peter, Paul and Mary debut this year, including the song "Puff the Magic Dragon". This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe.

Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. The three navies in the inner sea pull back to their original, more defensible positions near the three channels of Indonesia, working more rigourously to transport supplies and soldiers from Sumatra to Java. The Sumatran navy moves in towards Pandenglang to draw off some of the Federation fleet, and using the carrier to give additional aerial support. The leader put in charge of defending Pandenglang is Major General Charles H. Bonesteel, a decorated officer from World War II and the Chinese War. The US forces in Papua lay seige to the Federation bunkers, using medium artillary to support their position. Excess military from this seige make patrols around the rest of the island, ensuring the security of the military base in Baliem Valley. An air force base is constructed near the point of seige to ensure aeral support later on.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask you, if possible, to help us to take Sabah from the Philippines since we are aiding you in the war in Indonesia.
  • Italy: The government begins spreading propaganda that decries the Fascist government of the Netherlands (and subtly implies similar sentiment against the Soviet bloc). As presidential elections near, candidates begin amplifying their campaigns. Investment in industry and the economy continue, though slower, and investment in infrastructure continues, with the trans-Italian railroad making progress. The second of Italy's battleships reaches completion, missile submarines now number 50, and fighters are now at parity with bombers. Italy secretly informs France, Britain, and Germany that we would join in an invasion of the Netherlands if one were to take place, though we would need to transport troops over land. We also offer to purchase oil from Kurdistan and Libya. Many troops in the army are placed in the reserves, leaving 500,000 active troops and about that many in the reserves.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask Italy to send air, navy and land units to British Borneo in order to help us take back Sabah.
    • Kurdistan: Is happy to sell Italy oil.
  • Iran: Our economy rises by 10% after the deals with the UK and USA. We send an application for the NEU to Turkey. We use our money for our armies and educationational System. The Shah abolishes the Shia Nobility and replaces it with a pro-Monarchist Council that serves with the Parliament. The Shah visits the USA for a tourism. We criticises the Federation of the Americas and offer to send troops to fight alongside the USA. Even more oil is discovered and the standard of living rises by 1.9%
    • British Diplomacy: We support Iran's decision to aid the USA.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. In more positive news huge offshore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporation. Along with this is an increased migration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields.
  • Kurdistan: Continues its economic development, while relations continue to improve with Iran after the new alliance. Kurdistan begins clandestine support for rebels in Soviet Armenia and Azerbaijan, sympathizing with their efforts to gain independence. Military development continues, with a particular focus on the air force.
  • Sudanese-Uganda: The governmental building is halfway finished. The president of autonomous region is cancelling his trip to Indonesia and is planning to go to the United States instead to see the uproar that is going on. Infrastructure is expanded and improved and modernization is starting to take place as the region improves. We promote propaganda promoting educations and we are trying to built more schools in the land.
    • British Diplomacy: We expect Sudanese-Uganda to send air, naval and land reinforcements to help us in the invasion of Sabah since they are still under the United Kingdom. In exchange for military aid we will help to promote education in the area and aid in construction.
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM.. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate. France agrees to the Budapest terms. More military hardware is produced - in particular APC's, tanks and fighters - as older models are phased out. Worries over the decline of Dutch stability sparks a debate in Paris about whether the French state should intervene in the lowlands and establish a right wing government. To avoid the same issues as the other major powers France continues to promote a strong military culture in the homeland and amongst the whites in North Africa. French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democraticly elected government or face French intervention. De Gaulle promises to liberate the Netherlands once more from Nazi oppression and troops are sent to the border along with two armored divisions. Apart from that Paris declares an embargo on the Netherlands and opts to close off their access to the North Sea asking the British to cooperate with this motion. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory. The French continue their space program and also commit to supporting the EU program but keeping a separate one to the EU as to avoid dependency on EU science. Construction of The first French bullet train begins.
  • French North Africa (not including Algeria): Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity.
    • French Algeria: Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria.
    • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begin. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (mod response, please.)
    • French Indochina: Troops once more begin suppression campaigns in Indochina but the colonial administration grows tired of the continued fighting in the region and many military and administrative authorities in the colony demand that Paris come to a permanent solution. Paris' response is more troops and giving the administration a free hand in dealing with the problem. After years of negotiations and the Vietnamese agreeing to a possible French client state in the region the French decide that it is time to make the Vietnamese an associate state of the French Metropolis within the Union Francaise. While French troops combat laotian and cambodian rebels the colonial authorities offer the leaders of the movements similar agreements to that giving to Vietnam, and France promises to help the countries develop into prosperous states within the Union Francaise.
    • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
    • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask France to aid us in taking back Sabah and making it a state under the EU.
    • French Dip: The French decline to get involved in a conflict in the malay islands as it will drain resources that should be allocated to more important areas.
    • British Diplomacy: We understand and respect your decision but ask you to reconsider or at least send some supplies to the British troop.
    • Romanian Dip: We agree.
  • Romania: We continue expanding our economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated against. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Aromanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia. We restore the monarchy, with Michael the First being given back the crown. We ask Italy for military protection.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask Romania to aid us financially (or provide weaponry) in taking back Sabah from the Philippines.
  • Portugal: We continue to send more white Europeans to work in the West African oil fields, continuing to push Africans away from the oil rich region. Despite the fact that the natives are against the idea, we continue to make sure that we are in control of the prosperous oil fields. We accept the British Diplomacy's offer of membership to the EU, former alienating ourselves from Spain and Iberian nationalists.
    • British Diplomacy: We eagerly welcome Portugal into the European Union. Please feel free to participate in 1962 EU meeting now.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin building up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”. We are disappointed by Portugal refusal of a greater Iberia. We influence Andorra (Turn Five out of Six) and we request arms form the SDP nations.
  • None of that influence Turn Five out of Six crap. Make a legitimate plan to do it or don't do it at all. The Same applies to all players. -Feud
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Moroccan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 70,000. We begin moving inland as we are running out of land on the coast to make settlements of Inal, Bennichchab, Ninmjat, Merderdra, Tmeimichat, Akjoujt and the rest of the provinces of Dakhlet Nouadhibou, Inchiri and Trarza of 15,000.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 80,000 Spaniards. We begin to seize land on the coast for inhabitation by Spaniards.
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program but are wiling to stop it if necessary with the goal of making one in the late 80s. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 35,000 troops. We join the UMS. We secretly send a letter to Jordan asking if they would like to work together on nuclear weapons.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to see prolific population growth but also sees an Anti-War Ideology develop in the country. This shows increasing anti-war protests but polls indicate a Silent majority of the people are still in support of the conflict, seeing it as a symbol of how far the country has come. From a Disunified group of nation states, to a unified front able to achieve superpower status. The Federation continues to see economic slowdown due to a large GDP percentage spent on military force. However, the Federation President keeps back hiking taxes to pay for this and instead draws down salaries of many of its politicians having the advantage to do this through many of the Federations anti-corruption legislation, and Anti business lobbying laws as well. The Federation military sees more of its equipment modernized. After seeing some of the Shortcomings to its Assault rifle immediate inroads are made to replace it with something new and sell off its previous rifle to police, and foreign militaries. The designs are submitted almost immediately leading to the FMI Tar-15 making an appearance. Its tests show great promise and Units with this weapon are to be fielded in the continuing Indonesian conflict as tests, before fully fielding the weapon as the workhorse firearm. The Federation continues development of its infrastructure as well with a noticeable increase in its metro system being known. The Government investment into the metro and highway systems connect many of the Southern cities making settlement of many of its interior territories much easier. The Capital Area of San Salvacion sees some of the most prolific growth as well. The Federation seeing the conflict continue and the US fleets reposition re-opens the main supply route to West Papua but also continues the war on Pandeglang looking to force the surrender of the US forces there. The Federation after several setbacks in planning conducts the Invasion of Kalimenten from the north, acting independently of the Nationalist forces, using its 50,000 strong force in the South to link up with the 30,000 strong northern Force, and then swing back around and set up an untenable position for the US navy. The US fleet arriving in the Area does force a reposition of the Federation Fleet but with the Arrival of the Hades Carrier Group near West Papua, the Brasilia battlegroup is migrated a bit closer to prevent too much deviation from the offensive in Java. The Federation continues to hold the Line in West Papua linking its 10,000 stromg Amphibious shock corps force with its defensive forces in West Papua giving them potential to hold the line against the numerically superior force. The Federation does make avenues for its escape in case it fails in the defensive, detailing fortification construction to the Indonesian forces for the Federation to fall back on. The Federation presidency having been a quiet election season with Manuel Abascal taking the presidency for the incumbent party. He denies all involvement in the Kennedy assassination and sends his condolences to his widow. Manuel gives a speech on the situation on Indonesia and publicizes Colonel Alejandro Gonzales the commander in charge of the defense of West Papua, and General Marcos Almagro, making his first command appearance since the Cuban insurrection commanding the offensive on Pandeglang with full intent on taking the city, He escalates the artillery campaign before the main offensive leveling outer parts of the city to give his vehicles more room to operate. Federation forces taking havy casualties in both the Defense of West Papua and the Seige of Pandeglang laud both General Marcos, and Colonel Alejandro for their command, and as much as the West Papua was a loss it was not a rout and the Federation was able to hold the line against the US forces for the time being. The Pendeglang and Kalimintan offensives remain relatively effective, the Offensive in Pendeglang, however, remains in place as nearly two-thirds of the city remains in US hands.
  • Republic of the Philippines: The family of the rape victim demands an apology from the American government for the rape incident last year. President Elizabeth Bayabos demands the expulsion of all American troops, but at the request of the American government, would still allow non-military Americans to stay. Due to recent tensions with the British, the government increases its military expenditure to 7% of its gross domestic product, they also purchase modern military technology from the Federation and other Allies. Since a larger percentage of our GDP is spent on military, growth slows down. She still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. She continues to monopolises several "key" industries. She also begins to improve overall infrastructure. She would like to increase trade with Japan and the Federation. We join the Indonesian conflict, deploying 100,000 troops. She denounces the imperialist, tiny, weak, crumbling British for calling our efficient government as "corrupt". Seeing that the British will probably continue their aggression, we invade Sarawak, the stronghold of British influence in Southeast Asia with 100,000 troops and ask the Federation and our nationalist Allies to help. Meanwhile, the government says to America that we will improve our now hostile relationship if they agree to back off from the Indonesian conflict or let the new nationalist government gain control over most of Indonesia (we support its partition), increase trade with us, remove all troops, and not help the British in our war with them.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation will support the Filipino troops when we are able get troops over there, but our current offensives and deployments have us spread thin as it is.
  • Germany: Reconstruction is finished in the East and the economy is improved in the West. We begin a massive construction project to improve and expand the the autobahn into western Germany. We open up new universities across the nation and send some scientists to assist the EU space program.'We call for reductions in nuclear arsenals across the world.'
    • Federation Dip: No.
  • Yugoslavia is furious with the EU, especially with Romania after they betrayed us. We build our military. We increase our military presence on the Romanian-Yugoslvian border. We would like the Soviet Union and other Warsaw Pact members to invade Romania and I'll soon to come. We also claim that we can have influence in Western European politics and the end of the evil EU. We continue to work on the EESA with Poland. We would like Greece and Hungary to work on the EESA with me and Poland.
  • Romanian Dip: We tell you that we are not afraid, because the Warsaw Pact is failed, long dead, a dream in Communist minds. We laugh at your pathetic claims. We remind you that the greatest powers protect us, and the USSR is weak. Also, Hungary is neutral but aligned with the US.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. Nationalist units successfully penetrated into occupied Java, and with massive Federation reinforcements arriving, the city of Pandeglang was effectively placed under a seige. A simultaneous blockade was placed upon the Sunda Straits to halt the arrival of US or Sumatran aid to the beseiged city. A total of 130,000 Indonesia troops, along with the majority of the Indonesian Armoured Corps, and Navy were dedicated to the incursion into Pandeglang. Meanwhile, the Indonesian assault upon the city of Tarakan, involving 185,000 troops and the majority of the Indonesian Air Force resulted in minor gains into Kalimantan territory, and an overall victory. Similarly at Papua, 180,000 Indonesian troops and 110,000 Federation troops effectively kept the US at bay. To further prevent any major incursion into Papuan soil, Indonesian troops distributed armaments and anti-aircraft equipment amongst the local nationalist militias, hoping that the guerrilla tactics utilized by these forces would result in significant US losses, and would further alienate the local tribes against the Americans in case of retaliatory US air strikes.

1964.0

Combined outrage over the Pied-Noir and major wars involving France in general has caused large number of young adults to start protesting against war in France. Riot police quellinga a major riot at Notre Dame University leads to the death of two students, and injures dozens.

Further race riots appear in major cities throughout Rhodesia, Mozambique, and Pretoria in vengence over the events last year

The Nationalists make moderate prgress into Pandeglang Province, while the Federation and United States Forces enter into brutal street by street fighting in Pendeglang city taking roughly one-third of the city. The combined Sumatran and American troops under Bonesteel's charisma holds the line as a miraculous push through of vital supplies via air drop keeps belieguered US troops alive.

The Sumatran air force takes advantage of a small hole in the Federations aerial patrol route to land aircraft in Java giving a short relief to the Sumatran forces with some air cover hoping to stall out the Indonesian offensives and push them back. (medium air cover until next turn)

The US forces similarly manage to break through the fortifications in West Papua, but find progress in the jungle climate nearly impossible in the face of Colonel Gonzales, being known as the Snake of Papua, leading the defense

The nationalist landings in southern Kalimenten meet up after only miraculously sustaining minor casualties, routing the Sumatran forces. Further aid will be difficult to come by as progress in the Inner Sea becomes more treaterous

Surgeon General Luther Terry reports that smoking is hazardous to health

The heavy casualty reports coming home to the United States and the Federation incite more anti-war protests as many more see no point in the Indonesian conflict, with only two different brands of democracy and economics vying for control rather than a true ideological struggle.

  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles, and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly, with sub-genres spreading out encouraging compassion and philosophy. Congress approves the Freedom of Rights Act that ensures civil liberties to all Americans. This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push towards desegregation. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. As a new president, Adlai Stevenson decides to be much more proactive in the Indonesian conflict. He sends 150,000 troops into West Papua, including medium and heavy artillary, and 150 tanks. The new airbase in Papua sees 15 new fighter planes and five new bombers reach the island. 75,000 troops are also sent into Kalimenten, joinging with the troops already stationed there to march onto the Nationalist beachhead directly. The US representatives in Sumatra help reorganize their military after the latter defeat, and launch a counter-invasion of West Kalimenten. The fleet near Kalimenten, backed by the anti-naval defenses built up in the last few years, ensures that the forces on the island are isolated from the rest of the nationalists. The navy near Sumatra continues to relieve pressure from the seige of Pandeglang, where General Bonesteel personally organizes the multi-layered defense of the city. Micro-managing every expense of resources and distribution of troops, Bonesteel keeps artillary mounted on the rooftops, with hunrdeds of footsoldiers and sparring amount of tanks patrolling each district. The financial district has alread gone to ruins from the street-by-street fighting, leaving little gain on either side. The new drafts, however, has caused an increase of violent and passive rebellions from the youth of America.
    • ​US Dip (to Britain): We demand that you pull out of this ridiculous campaign in Sarawak and actually devote resources against the nationalists in Indonesia
    • US Dip (to Philippines): The state department is willing to negotiate a peaceful end to the conflict, but does not approve of the Philippine's current proposal.
    • British Diplomacy: We will begin moving more units to Indonesia once the Philippines agrees to the terms in our section.
  • Western African Federation: We continue to recruit about 200 troops and to put it likely, economy grows even more to target its high stake. Industries will be built even more as they continue to make more progress. Unfortunately, the rebels are not in Africa. The population continues to grow. So far Lagos stands 4.5 illion. We continue to develop weapons, the tanks and vehicles still not ordered yet and not researched. While we try to increase our nation for good.
    • Federation Dip: We offer to support the advancement and development of the West African Federations military forces. We also offer to support and invest in the WAF's economy as well as provide peacekeepers to prevent the nations from falling apart into ethnic civil war if needed.
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM.. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate. French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democraticly elected government or face French intervention. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory. Support for nationalist groups in Yugoslavia begins in earnest and radio programs condemning the Yugoslav government's continued aggressions against the west and against grass-root democratic movements in the civilized world. The French continue their space program and also commit to supporting the EU program but keeping a separate one to the EU as to avoid dependency on EU science. Construction of The first French bullet train begins. Development of the F60 begins (famas). The incident outside of Notre dame University comes as a complete shock to the French nation as it not only was the loss of life of two youths but it was the first time that a major protest had occurred against the Fourth Republic. Fearing a return to political instability de Gaulle agrees to keep a tight reign on the empire after facing increasing pressure from the right wing which now dominates the French political machine. However, de Gaulle makes a promise to keep the armed forces under control. French troops are told to make ready and march across the Dutch border should the Nazi party not step down.
  • French North Africa (not including Algeria): Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity.
    • French Algeria: Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria. The White population continues to grow in Algeria despite some protests from the mainland over the treatment of locals and the continued bloodshed, the population currently standing at 2.5 million.
    • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begin. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (mod response, please.) The government begins increasing the power colonial subjects educated in France granting them more places in the administration. More arms are sent to the NKA to combat Communists and training of NKA officials and troops in insurgency and counter insurgency tactics are offered due to France's recent development of suppression tactics.
    • French Indochina: With the suppression of most of the cambodian and laotian rebels the colonial authorities offer the more moderate members of the independence movement a chance to come to the table to discuss the establishment of the state of Cambodia and Laos as autonomous members of the Union Francaise, and the French will withdraw the majority of their forces from the region with the exception of a small force.
    • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
    • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
    • Romanian Dip: You are allowed to establish in Timisoara, the nearest major city to the Yugoslav border. This also helps because there are many Serbs, Croats and Aromanians in the region.
  • Israel: Research regarding nuclear weapons continues, with scientists searching for the quickest way to successfully build a nuke, and having found the way beginning to produce one. A new government campaign starts encouraging the people to reproduce. Population stands at 3.4 million. The third season of the Israeli Football League (IFL) concludes, with Maccabi Tel Aviv winning. Sporting Ramallah is admitted into the League, alongside Sporting Tel Aviv. Talks with the French continue. The State of Israel enjoys NATO membership. The State of Israel SECRETLY requests that France shares a nuclear weapon with it. The State requests EU membership, pointing out not only its close ties, but also the fact that it is much closer to the EU members than any of the Communist Eastern European nations.
    • British Diplomacy: We have voted and you are now an official member of the European Union.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. In more positive news huge offshore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporation. Along with this is an increased migration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields. Police forces suppress and control riots in major cities, with only minor damage sustained.
  • The United Kingdom: We warn the Netherlands that time is running out for them to reform and continue anti-Netherlander propaganda. The state of Sabah is declared a State Under the European Union for the time being but it may be added to British Borneo in the future. We agree to end aggression towards the Philippines once they promise to stop attacking Sarawak and recognise Sabah as free. In return we will officially recognise the new Filipino government. We do not wish for this conflict between our nations to continue any longer. We promise to send more units to the Americans in Indonesia if the Filipino government does this. We offer Kurdistan the opportunity to join the EU. We slowly begin to stop the buying of oil from Saudi Arabia and dramatically begin investing in Iran, Kuwait, Libya, Canada, and other Commonwealth Nations that have oil. We receive a combined 20,000 troops and 35 destroyers from Commonwealth Nations and use them to protect the coast of Sabah from a possible Filipino or Federation attack.
    • Kurdistan would be willing to join the EU in an observer capacity, as it is not within the continent.
    • Sabah and Sarawak are different. Also, when you declared Sabah a state under the EU, that would still mean that you would have de jure control over it. Never mind, Feud probably made the error of making Sabah Sarawak.
    • Philippine Dip: We will stop our invasion of Sarawak, if we hold a referendum in Sarawak so that the native people would decide whether it will join the Philippine Republic, remain a British colony, become independent or join Malaya. We would also request the British give back Sabah in exchange for no hostility between us.
    • British Diplomacy: We will not hold a referendum since most people in British Borneo still wish to be a part of the United Kingdom. We will, however, allow those with Filipino background to decide whether or not they wish to stay in Borneo or go the Philippines. And we will not give Sabah back since we just fought to secure it. If we just turned around and gave it back to you then that is like saying the lives that were lost in taking it were worthless (and it's a state under the EU now so the entire EU would have to vote on whether or not to give it to you). Nor will we cede Sarawak to you. If we were to cede it to anyone in Southeast Asia it would mostly likely be the Republic of Malaya. Also, your request to the USA for all of the Spanish East Indies is irrelevant since the USA never aided in the taking of Sabah and do not owe you anything. We wish for you to agree to our original terms since they are favourable for both of us. If we gave you all our land for a conflict that we were victorious in then who is really the winner?
    • Federation Dip: The Federation reminds the British that their imperial days are over. Any attempt of expansion here will be met with extreme hostility. As a result, we support the Philippines invasion of British controlled northern Borneo
    • No, Sabah and Kurdistan cannot be in the EU. The only non-European being allowed in the EU is Israel -Nate
  • Romania: We continue expanding our economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated against. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Aromanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia. We restore the monarchy, with Michael the First being given back the crown. We ask Italy for military protection.
    • French Dip: Due to the recent threats from the Yugoslav government and the isolation of Romania in Eastern Europe The French send another 80,000 troops to bolster the 20,000 currently stationed in Romania.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to see prolific population growth but also sees an anti-war ideology develop in the country. This shows increasing anti-war protests but polls indicate a silent majority of the people are still in support of the conflict, seeing it as a symbol of how far the country has come. From a disunified group of nation states, to a unified front able to achieve superpower status. The Federation continues to see economic slowdown due to a large GDP percentage spent on military force. However, the Federation President keeps back hiking taxes to pay for this and instead draws down salaries of many of its politicians having the advantage to do this through many of the Federations anti-corruption legislation, and Anti business lobbying laws as well. The Federation military sees more of its equipment modernized. The Tar-15 makes its official entry onto the military scene having proven much more effective than the EM-2 in combat testing in Indonesia. The weapon is known to never having suffered a single jam in the current Battle of West Papua and the reports surrounding its use show incredible accuracy, and utility able to mount many attachments. The Federation deploys a new sniper rifle as well the M-20 bolt action sniper. The Federation continues development of its infrastructure as well with a noticeable increase in its metro system being known. The government investment into the metro and highway systems connect many of the Southern cities making settlement of many of its interior territories much easier. The Capital Area of San Salvacion sees some of the most prolific growth as well. Seeing notable victories in Pandeglang and with supply channels open the Federation General Marcos Almagro successfully gains access to one mechanized divisions, two armored divisions and two infantry divisions and two oversized Strike Marine divisions totalling in nearly 150,000 troops being brought from the homeland. This troop increase comes as a shock to the Federation public but many pro war activists show notable approval to the plan, with Federation forces now in a total surrounding stature around Pandeglang, sighted artillery zones are fired up reducing more and more of the city to rubble, this heavy bombardment is followed the order to attack by General Almagro looking to force the US soldiers into submission at this point and quickly divert the artillery corps to shelling Sumatra proper. This final assault into Pendeglang is followed by by the Federation reinforcing Gonzales with another 20,000 troops as well as a large amount of defensive equipment particularly things to boobytrap the jungle and build a large amount of fortifications. Colonel Gonzales confident in his ability to hold the line once again builds a moderate defensive line but opts to bring up his previously unused vehicles burning the jungle directly in front of his trenchlines to allow for his armor and mechanized units to fight mobily and prevent US forces from gaining ground in this battle. The total force of 130,000 troops, nearly 200 tanks and armored vehicles, and its large air compliment prepare to fight one of the largest battles of the unofficial war. With success in Kaliminten almost assured, the rest of the northern part of the island under Sumatra control is taken, with the Federations 70,000 strong force reinforcing the Nationalists to the south using its medium strength armored forces to provide a mobile defense against the US forces as well. The Federation offers the Indonesian government the sale of its retired carriers El Dorado and Santa Salvaćion, as well as the offer to sell them state-of-the-art destroyers, frigates and cruisers for their navy with a potential delivery date of a task force in the next six months out of pre-existing ships. The Ballistic Missile Submarines Rojo October and Grendel make their appearance off the coast of Kalimintan sending out a large barrage of Cruise missiles to destroy anti-ship batteries, and anti-air batteries allowing for a brief window in which the Federation was able to resupply its Kaliminten forces without using the longer northern route. The Federation urges the Philippines to use Federation transport capabilities and ship its forces from Sulawesi to Kalimintan to retake territory and surround the surviving Sumatran forces. The Federation in response to the Filipino troops making landfall on Northern Bornero supports their operation with air and armor support air lifting upwards of 150 armored vehicles, and another 100 aircraft detailed to support the Filipino invasion. With the Federation gaining command of the Filipino Expeditionary force, they are re-armed with Federation equipment and insignias and deployed in Kalimintan opting to continues digging in and use the Filipino troops to fill in holes in the Defensive lines.
    • ​Indonesian Nationalist Diplomacy: We accept.
  • Kurdistan sends observers to the ongoing Indonesian conflict, who bring back reports which influence the Kurdish tactical doctrine significantly. Kurdish generals focus on improving anti-tank capabilities and expanding and upgrading the air force. New anti-tank missiles are widely produced and distributed. Mobile infantry forces are also modernized. The economy, especially manufacturing, grows with large subsidies.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation.
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program but are wiling to stop it if necessary with the goal of making one in the late 80s. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 40,000 troops. We join the UMS. We secretly send a letter to Jordan asking if they would like to work together on nuclear weapons.
  • Jordan: We receive the letter on Syria on working together on nukes, and we accept. We also work on our military technology.
  • Yemen: We continue to build the economy and improve infrastructure. We keep working on an education system and try to reform the justice system to remove Shari law from our system. We make it compulsory for all officers of the army to learn some basic Spanish. We send a full sized brigade (5000 troops) to Indonesia to support the Nationalists. We request that they fight under federation command and that they can also help be supplied by the Federation.
  • Republic of the Philippines: The family of the rape victim demands an apology and money from the American government for the rape and murder incident a year ago. President Elizabeth Bayabos still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. Our modernisation strategy is to export vast quantities of low-cost manufactured goods to other countries while maintaining relative self-sufficiency by developing a strong agricultural base and using our own reserves of raw materials and energy. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. She continues to monopolises several "key" industries. She also begins to improve overall infrastructure, specially in the growing urban areas. She would like to increase trade with Japan and the Federation, she also offers trade with the Nationalist Indonesian government once the war is over. We continue to participate in the Indonesian conflict, deploying 100,000 troops, though we would want them to fight under the Federation's command. The government denounces the British government. We continue our invasion of Sarawak (and Sabah) with 140,000 troops, using our proximity and population density to our advantage, we encourage our nationalist Allies to help us. We heavily militarise our maritime borders with the British in Sabah. Meanwhile, the government says to America that we will improve our now hostile relationship if they force Britain to cede Sarawak to us and they cede some of their Pacific territories that had been once part of the Spanish East Indies (looking at Guam). We use Federation transport capabilities and ship our forces from Sulawesi to Kalimantan to attempt to retake territory and surround the surviving pro-American forces. We centralise our control of the populace by promoting a nationalist ideology.
  • Italy: The government, tired of constant Yugoslav threats against its EU-sympathetic neighbors, issues an ultimatum to Yugoslavia: Stop the mindless threats of invasion or be prepared to back up their talk. Officials, though wary of threatening war against the country for fear of larger Warsaw Pact intervention, believe that at the very least this will force them to consider the ramifications of their decisions. Knowing that the EU and NATO may or may not be very willing to enforce this decision, Italy makes no claim that these groups necessarily need to help Italy if Yugoslavia refuses to back down, except in the event of a larger response from the Warsaw Pact.This, it is hoped, will dissuade the Warsaw Pact, at least temporarily. Having completed the newest model of the new assault rifle, codenamed the CT (short for colpo tempesta, or "storm shot" (if anyone has a better translation, feel free to replace it)), it enters mass production. Submarine production begins to slow to a stop in order to make up for the difference. Missile submarines now number 50, though numbers begin to level off. The additional production not used for assault rifle production goes into the production of the carrier ordered many years ago.
    • Ballistic missile submarines are EXPENSIVE AS ALL HELL. Please dumb down the number. in 1967 the US maintained 41 of these and was a superpower with the economic might to support it. Italy does not share that same ability. I suggest somewhere around 10-18 max -Feud
    • OK, a mistake on my part. How about 12.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. The success of the Nationalist offense into Pendeglang further increased the morale of the army, who now increasively viewed the conflict was 'winnable'. Despite having been stalled west of Pandeglang city, the Nationalist units operating in Pendeglang under the command of General Moeldoko carefully observed the situation and relaunched an offensive, dubbed the "Moeldokos March to the Sea" in hopes of penetrating through Democratic territory and reaching the Sunda Straits. A total of 130,000 Indonesia troops, along with the majority of the Indonesian Armoured Corps, and Navy were dedicated to the incursion into Pandeglang. Meanwhile, the Nationalist assault upon the city of Pontianak, involving 185,000 troops and the majority of the Indonesian Air Force resulted in victory, with the city established as a base of operations for further incursions into Kalimantan. With the arrival of a further 70,000 Federation reinforcements at West Kalimantan, the defense of the city against the US was assured. The Indonesian Air Force was directed to aid the units in West Kalimantan, and begin bombing Democrat positions in the region. Similarly at Papua, 180,000 Indonesian troops and 130,000 Federation troops effectively kept the US at bay. To further prevent any major incursion into Papuan soil, Indonesian troops distributed armaments and anti-aircraft equipment amongst the local nationalist militias, hoping that the guerrilla tactics utilized by these forces would result in significant US losses, and would further alienate the local tribes against the Americans in case of retaliatory US air strikes.


1964.5

US and Federation forces stalemate as another assault on Pandeglang ruins much of the rest of the city with many soldiers taking up positions in the rubble of buildings. General Marcos Almagro continues his seige of Attrition on Pandeglang hoping to make the US units combat ineffective. This seems to be proving true with the Federation and US both sustaining more than 40,000 casualties in the last battle, and the US being unable to effectively reinforce Pandeglang

The US continues to keep the upper hand in West Papua managing to keep the Federation from conducting any counter offensives. The Involvement of the previously in reserve nationalist forces worries the US commander though who requests some 20,000 reinforcements to counter and organize a defense against counter attacks.

The French see a Wave of bombings in Algeria on Pied-Noir settlements causing legislation in Algeria to conduct the building of the "Settlement Walls" a system of walls that isolate the Peid Noir settlements from the hostile Algerian populations. This wall is expected to encompass a good portion of the Algerian coast while also expanding in due time to include more and more of the Settled territory

Egypt gaining membership into the SDP is unable to keep the preassure on the French government as the Leading powers preassure Nasser to end his support of Libyan and Tunisian separatists.

The British expeditionary Force in Sarawak is put under heavy seige as over 100,000 Filipino troops invade to retake the territory surrounding them and forcing the British forces to dig in.

Some French government officials begin advocating breaking off of major territories not intended to remain within the French Union saying that maintaining bases in hostile territory will cause major issues in logistics and prevent the French from economically progression by lugging the dead weight around.

Rhodesian, and Tanzanian whites request British assistance to prevent the ever brewing Race war in these countries. The Rhodesian union in particular maintains a large white population of nearly half a million with business opportunity having made Rhodesia profitable and attractive to White settlement.

South Africa with nearly a population of nearly 3.4 million whites and growing rapidly as immigration and favorable job opportunity attracts them, request support from multiple SDP members hoping to enforce the White dominant state and prevent the brewing race war from breaking out.

  • Western African Federation: We still continue for economy to expand - as well as more troops been recruited in the army. The weapons will be developed and they could be given to troops. As Federation support us for economy and military army forces of WAF, we hope there isn't ethnic civil war belong to WAF but in the meantime, the peacekeepers are defending the cities.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. In more positive news huge offshore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporation. Along with this is an increased migration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields.
    • ​[M] Who ever keeps deleting my entries can you please stop.
  • Romania: We continueexpanding our economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated against. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Aromanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia.. We ask Italy for military protection. We begin modernizing our airplane manufacturing base, with hope of NATO and maybe SPD investment. We mobilze our army, putting them on all of our borders.
    • Italy: We may not be the ones to ask for military support, but we'll see what we can do.
    • Spain: We will invest in your nation in return for cheaper goods like oil.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to see prolific population growth but also sees an anti-war ideology develop in the country. This shows increasing anti-war protests but polls indicate a silent majority of the people are still in support of the conflict, seeing it as a symbol of how far the country has come. From a disunified group of nation states, to a unified front able to achieve superpower status. The Federation continues to see economic slowdown due to a large GDP percentage spent on military force. However, the Federation President keeps back hiking taxes to pay for this and instead draws down salaries of many of its politicians having the advantage to do this through many of the Federations anti-corruption legislation, and Anti business lobbying laws as well. The Federation military sees more of its equipment modernized. The Tar-15 makes its official entry onto the military scene having proven much more effective than the EM-2 in combat testing in Indonesia. The weapon is known to never having suffered a single jam in the current Battle of West Papua and the reports surrounding its use show incredible accuracy, and utility able to mount many attachments. The Federation deploys a new sniper rifle as well the M-20 bolt action sniper. The Federation continues development of its infrastructure as well with a noticeable increase in its metro system being known. The government investment into the metro and highway systems connect many of the Southern cities making settlement of many of its interior territories much easier. The Capital Area of San Salvacion sees some of the most prolific growth as well. The Federation seeing a static battle line in West Papua continues to dig in throwing down heavy defenses such as bunkers, anti tank emplacements, minefields, and other defensive fortifications. Colonel Gonzales retreats much of his force to the fortifications forgoing the previous mobile defenses for the Status but well build Indepencia defensive line. General Almagro while seeing more public unrest for the war sees some success in his strategy of Attrition and aside from the nearly 20,000 dead and 20,000 wounded from the battle in Pandeglang, is given reinforcements to keep his army in fighting shape to take Pandeglang and finally evict the US forces from Java. The Grueling battle takes nearly a month with heavy casualties on both sides. However, by the end the Federation finally forces Bonesteel and his final 20,000 strong force at the US headquarters to surrender. By this point as well the Federation continues to Dig in at Kalimintan but is forced to withdraw almost half its armored force to Java to press the attack on the Americans. The Federation relies heavily on its infatry and air/fleet support to hold the line hoping that the Filipino troops are able to hold the line as well as Federation troops. The Federation begins to see much of its own anti war songs coming into popularity as the Youth protests the war heavily. The Federation in response to the Landing of more US forces on Sulawesi Draws back Troops deployments un Cuba from nearly 350,000 to 150,000 with the remaining forces building the Cuba defense perimeter up heavily with heavy emplacements, bunkers, and other defensive fortifications. The Federation takes these Extra 200,000 troops from Cuba, all professional soldiers unaffected by the Draft issues and many of the officers being veterans of the Cuban insurrection, and Redeploys them onto Kalimintan shifting the 70,000 man draftee force to Sulawesi rushing north to meet the US at their beach head building light fortifications quickly to prevent the US from taking more than Gondana. The Federation makes notable use of its new M-14 and M-20 attack helicopters in the defense of Sulawesi with the end of the Pandeglang Seige the Federation redeploys nearly 100,000 troops from the 300,000 strong force in Java to the middle of Sulawesi building defensive fortifications as well looking to meet the US forces halfway down the island and use the 70,000 strong force to delay the US military for as long as possible. The Federation officially brings in strategic bombers with support of the Federation air force begins the heavy strategic bombing of Sumatra proper hitting many southern cities. The Federation also joins in the final battle for Pandeglang against the Sumatran forces looking to fully secure java by the end of the year. The Federation announces its mission to send a man to the moon in 1969 having conducted many tests to support such an operation. The Federation replying to the South African plea sends 10,000 Peacekeepers a small armored core of about 100 tanks, 50 infantry fighting vehicles/APC's and deposits about 30 jet aircraft for the operation as well as 50 helicopters of transport and attack variety.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation.
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly, with sub-genres spreading out encouraging compassion and philosophy. Congress approves the Freedom of Rights Act that ensures civil liberties to all Americans. This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push towards desegregation. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. The troops in Papua, led by General Benjamin Pierce, concentrate their new heavy artillarly and tanks against the front of the Federation compound, coupled with paratrooper landings across the fortifications. A small fleet of two battleships, two destroyers and ten smaller vessals attack the Filippino military near Sarawak, aiding the British. 70,000 new soldiers are deposited in Northern Kalimenten and march north, cutting off the Federation and Fillippino soldiers from the attack on the beachhead continuing in the south. This same fleet deposits an additional 130,000 soldiers on Gondana, securing a beachhead in northern Sulawasi.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask the USA to pressure the Philippines into agreeing with our terms since the ones they proposed are pretty ridiculous.
  • The United Kingdom: We ask for all European Union members to send support to British Borneo and to the USA in Indonesia. We also invite them to the 1960's EU Emergency Meeting and another 10,000 from Sudanese-Uganda that surround the coast of Sarawak and engage the Filipino government. We would like to clarify some things. A) The state of Sabah is under the EU, not the British Empire because, as I've stated before, pretty much everyone in the British government is anti-imperialist. B) Being a state under the Union does not mean that they are a member of the European Union, it means they are controlled, rebuilt, reformed, et cetera by the EU and will remain that way until they are once again stable. And C) We think our terms were fair and we ask the Federation and the Philippines to consider them as we do not wish to drag out this conflict any longer or lose any more men on either side. We won the battle so the terms that the Filipino government proposed are ridiculous. The British soldiers launch Operation Serpentine and begin incursions of guerrilla warfare along the coast. There are approximately 70,000 troops (British and Commonwealth) soldiers fighting against the invasion now. 20,000 more troops (veterans) come from the UK to Sabah and fight on the coast. We wait for Canadian navy to aid us. (more later)
    • You won a battle with 10,000 troops who are now surrounded and under extreme seige by over 15 times their number. No way the Philippines agrees to this, the Philippines have the local advantage and numbers advantage ten-fold on top of an ally providing them all sorts of air and armor support. You won a single battle and joined a war you were warned to stay out of. You're going to suffer the consequences of this.
    • Okay. Since exactly did it say the commonwealth got involved ... I don't remember an event or anything on Nathan's side ... -Feud
    • They got involved last turn. By the way, when did Burma become independent because it did not sign the Queen's Mandate nor has it been recognised by the UK. And South Africa's inclusion in the SDP is pretty ridiculous. They never stated that they wished to join the organisation nor is it plausible since they are a part of the British Commonwealth which is against the SDP. Also if the Philippines is able to continue training soldiers then so will I and I will continue to send them into the battle since my population is twice theirs and my GDP is nearly 100 billion.
    • South Africa is was hardly ever part of the commonwealth as it was Post WW-2 their Apartheid policy didn't sync up with the decolonization movement. South Africa's previous player applied and was accepted. Also enough ATL has happened that makes it plausible, on top of this the South African entrance into the SDP is essentially a De Facto abandonment of the commonwealth by South Africa. As for your GDP, your talking about competing with a rising regional power thats being supplied and aided economically and military by a Superpower that for years singlehanded fought the US at a disadvantage in Indonesia until recently. Also Burma can go independent if it damn well pleases. You can always try to reconquer it but thats a tad unfeasible. The queens mandate is just the UK's legal way of releasing colonies in a semi friendly manner. Throwing off your reigns militarily is still feasible if not outright likely. And if you want to go for GDP comparisons. The US is 740 Billion and the Federation is somewhere around 720 billion. Both of which are seven times your GDP. If you want to talk about populations arrayed against you. The Indonesian Federation and the Philippines together maintain a population of 70 million which is higher than yours, on top of the Federations population of nearly 172 million. You are not a Superpower, you are a moderately strong Great Power that has a few key Allies. The EU on top of this cant feasibly send aid except for France which has already told you to bugger off. -Feud
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin building up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”. We will continue to support Iberian nationalists in Portugal. We use the significant Spanish and Catalan population to create a party known as the Iberian party which we will support with monetary support. We will use this party to pressure the government to join Spain(MOD). We will also send a force of 20,000 troops to help South Africa.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Moroccan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 90,000. We begin moving inland as we are running out of land on the coast to make settlements of Inal, Bennichchab, Ninmjat, Merderdra, Tmeimichat, Akjoujt and the rest of the provinces of Dakhlet Nouadhibou, Inchiri and Trarza of 25,000.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 100,000 Spaniards. We begin to seize land on the coast for inhabitation by Spaniards.
  • ​Italy: Missile submarine production officially stops, with a grand total of 12 in the navy. So far, CT production has created 100,000 of the new weapon (I'm no expert, but if Italian industry can create hundreds of multi-ton tanks in a year, several thousand at least seems like a remotely reasonable number for guns that can be carried in someone's hands), and production continues until the whole army can be equipped with this new device. A select group of soldiers (75,000, in case some break) are put into training to use it effectively. We offer to trade with Canada and Australia. We await the Yugoslav response to our ultimatum. We continue sponsoring the railroad. We begin debating whether or not to aid the UK in its many wars.
    • British Diplomacy: Please consider joining us and ending the one conflict we are faced with at the moment. Once it is over we plan on taking a stepping towards neutrality and focusing on the EU and ourselves.
  • Germany: Across the nation we improve industry and infrastructure. The army is brought up to full strength at 250,000 soldiers with limited tank and air support. Our scientists begin to look into nuclear energy and rocket technology. We send scientists to work on the EU space program. Troops and armor are deployed along the border with the Netherlands ready to support an EU intervention. We begin to look for ways to reform the EU
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program with the goal of making one in the mid or late 70s with Jordan help. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 70,000 troops. We join the UMS. We begin to send troops to the golan hight claming it Syrian land.
  • Jordan: We thank Syria for joining the UMS, and we still open the doors to the other countries. We begin to work on our cities. The Jordanian Parliament has decided to join the cities of Aljoun, Aldail, Alhusn, Alkutaifah, Al-Mattabah, Al-Muqawwar, Al-Quwaysimah, Arki, and the port city of Aqaba into one city called Raqadan, in order to maintain better control. We also work on our economy.
  • Portugal: We chastise Portuguese West Africa for their revolts. We continue to increase European migration into the region, still ensuring we have complete control over the newly discovered oil fields. Meanwhile, we reject Spain's hope for a united Iberia, because it would not be in Portugal's best interest and would cause strife. We also scold Spain for supporting Iberian nationalists in our nation, hoping that they will stay out of our affairs.
    • British Diplomacy:' We ask for Portugal to send support to British Borneo.
    • Portugal Dip: We want to know if other EU nations are willing to join the conflict.
  • Yemen: We continue to build the economy and improve infrastructure. We keep working on an education system and try to reform the justice system to remove Shari law from our system. We make it compulsory for all officers of the army to learn some basic Spanish. We send a full sized brigade (5000 troops) to Indonesia to support the Nationalists. We request that they fight under federation command and that they can also help be supplied by the Federation.
  • Republic of the Philippines: President Elizabeth Bayabos still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. Our modernisation strategy is to export vast quantities of low-cost manufactured goods to other countries while maintaining relative self-sufficiency by developing a strong agricultural base and using our own reserves of raw materials and energy. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. She continues to monopolises several "key" industries. She also begins to improve overall infrastructure, specially in the growing urban areas. She would like to increase trade with Japan and the Federation, she also offers trade with the Nationalist Indonesian government once the war is over. We continue to participate in the Indonesian conflict, with 120,000 troops, though we would want them to fight under the Federation's command. The government denounces the British government for their ridiculous claims and we do not agree to their terms. We continue our invasion of Sarawak (and Sabah) with 150,000, 50,000 more then before troops, using our proximity, high morale, and greater population density (Sarawak is relatively "underpopulated") to our advantage, we encourage our nationalist Allies to help us. We heavily militarise our maritime borders with the British and develop our navy. Meanwhile, the government says to America that we will never have peace unless the British cedes Sarawak to us. We use Federation transport capabilities and ship our forces from Sulawesi to Kalimantan to attempt to retake territory and surround the surviving pro-American forces. We centralise our control of the populace by promoting a nationalist ideology. We begin expulsion of all Americans and their family to avoid accidents, but we only let them take a certain amount of wealth back.
    • British Diplomacy: Your population is about 30 million and your economy is not strong enough to continue sending in units. You already have 120,000 serving in Indonesia and 150,000 in Sarawak (a lot of which are Federation troops). I don't think it is probable that you would have 50,000 more troops your could send in consider how small you are. (Mod please respond)
    • Federation Dip: The Federation maintains equips supplies and upwards of 120,000 of these troops as well as leads them. His economy can easily maintain his current number if not more. The Federation also recognizes the fact that 30 million was only ten million short of the French's WW1 population in which they were able to field millions. The Philippines with Federation support can and will be able to support a very large military for the time being.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. General Moeldoko successfully destroyed the Democratic units operating in Pendeglang, and liberated the province in the 21st March Offensive, which had been dubbed "Moeldokos March to the Sea". A total of 130,000 Indonesia troops, along with the majority of the Indonesian Armoured Corps, had been dedicated to this incursion, and these units were put on high alert in case of an immediate attack from Sumatra to retake Pendeglang. Meanwhile, the Nationalist assault upon the city of Pontianak, involving 185,000 troops and the majority of the Indonesian Air Force resulted in victory, with the city established as a base of operations for further incursions into Kalimantan. With the majority of US units in Kalimantan directed to Sarawak, the Nationalists launched an offense into Southern Kalimantan. The Indonesian Air Force which had utilized Sulawesi as a base for operations in Kalimantan, along with early warnings of US troop movement from the Philippines prevented the Sulawesi Landings from having the element of surprise, and allowed the Nationalists to timely deploy 80,000 soldiers to the Minahassa Peninsula. The Indonesian Navy was simultaneously directed to the Gulf of Tomini and the Molucca Sea, hoping to strangle the US Navy operating in the area. Similarly at Papua, 180,000 Indonesian troops and 130,000 Federation troops effectively kept the US at bay. To further prevent any major incursion into Papuan soil, Indonesian troops distributed armaments and anti-aircraft equipment amongst the local nationalist militias, hoping that the guerrilla tactics utilized by these forces would result in significant US losses, and would further alienate the local tribes against the Americans in case of retaliatory US air strikes.
  • Yugoslavia: We would like Bugeria, Checoskvakia, Greece, Russia and Poland to collaboratively begin an invasion of Romania (Mod response for first 4). We continue to militarise our Romanian borders. We will not join the EU. We continue our research in nuclear weapons. We build our military and infrastructure. We crush any democratic rebels in Yugoslavia. We continue to work on science. We continue to work on the EESA. We build roads and motorways in our country. We would like Czechoslovakia, Greece and Bulgaria to join the EESA (mod response). We would like to buy Albania from the Federation.
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. The French unveil the AMX-30 their new standard MBT to replace the aging one large scale production begins as the older tanks are phased out and sold to Indochina and China. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate.French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democraticly elected government or face French intervention. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory. Support for nationalist groups in Yugoslavia begins in earnest and radio programs condemning the Yugoslav government's continued aggressions against the west and against grass root democratic movements in the civilized world. The French continue their space program and also commit to supporting the EU program but keeping a separate one to the EU as to avoid dependency on EU science. Construction of The first French bullet train begins. Development of the F60 begins (famas). The incident outside of Notre dame University comes as a complete shock to the French nation as it not only was the loss of life of two youths but it was the first time that a major protest had occurred against the Fourth Republic. Fearing a return to political instability de Gaulle agrees to keep a tight reign on the empire after facing increasing pressure from the right wing which now dominates the French political machine. However, de Gaulle makes a promise to keep the armed forces under control. French troops are told to make ready and march across the Dutch border should the Nazi Party not step down. The government begins looking at the rest of the dependent regions to determine which areas should be granted greater autonomy as public pressure begins to mount for an end to violence (I'm not going to let go completely of my colonies but as I discussed with Feud I will turn them into client states that are part of the Union Francaise, but won't control them directly any longer.) Plans are made to turn the French Foreign Legion into a volunteer army ready to serve the Union Francaise, the forces will be made up of volunteers from Union members who wish to serve and any who serve will be granted citizenship after five years of service. Naval expansion continues and production of missile carrier subs begin.
  • French North Africa (not including Algeria): Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity. All of North Africa is designated as land for settlement by the French authorities as they decide that North and Saharan Africa will be retained for economic and strategic purposes.
    • French Algeria: Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria. The White population continues to grow in Algeria despite some protests from the mainland over the treatment of locals and the continued bloodshed, the population currently standing at 2.5 million.
    • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begin. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (mod response, please.) The government begins increasing the power colonial subjects educated in France granting them more places in the administration. More arms are sent to the NKA to combat Communists and training of NKA officials and troops in insurgency and counterinsurgency tactics are offered due to France's recent development of suppression tactics.
    • French Indochina: With the suppression of most of the Cambodian and Laotian rebels the colonial authorities offer the more moderate members of the independence movement a chance to come to the table to discuss the establishment of the state of Cambodia and Laos as autonomous members of the Union Francaise, and The French will withdraw the majority of their forces from the region with the exception of a small force. Negotiations continue as the details are hammered out. French forces are withdrawn from parts of Cambodia and Laos as a sign of good faith.
    • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
    • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
    • Israel: A new government campaign starts encouraging the people to reproduce. Population stands at 4.1 million. The State of Israel enjoys NATO and EU membership. The State finishes its first nuclear weapon and begins production of more.

1965.0

Out of line with Commonwealth policy heavily South Africa finally withdraws from the British Commonwealth. This is met with some fanfare from the white population who finally are able to keep to their Apartheid policies with no criticism from the other commonwealth members.

The Federation and Indonesian forces claim victory in Java as 71,000 US troops are killed with nearly 19,000 dead. The Sumatran forces also see a failed defense of their final provincial strongholds and of the remaining 150,000 troops only about 60,000 organize a retreat across the straits to Sumatra reaching the other side battered and exhausted.

The Israeli government begins to see increasing population as the nation transitions into a more modern European based nation state.

The Australians and Canadians agree to send limited support to the UK as commonwealth members in Indonesia but The Canadians seeing potential for war in North America refuse to send their fleet citing it being a threat to their home security to send the fleet. Australia on the other hand devotes 30,000 troops in New Guinea beginning to Shell Indonesian Troops from across the Border. (This means adjust your troops British player, you don't get to call on the Commonwealth troops as if they are your own)

The Federation sees a somewhat die down in the anti-war protests as successes in the offensives show promise in the campaign. Protests in the number of casualties go up however.

The US sees some more support for the war as the Capturing of US troops emboldens pro-war activists for revenge

Sweden: We give power back to the monarch. We also want to join SDP and there is a baby boom. Because of that, Sweden supported couples to have kids so the population is 11 million.

British Diplomacy: We ask you to join the EU.

  • The United Kingdom: We begin the liberation of the Netherlands by sending 150,000 troops to storm the beaches in the west of the country. Our naval blockade covers most of the west further preventing the Netherlands to trade with foreign powers. We ask France, Germany and Italy to begin sending troops in and surrounding the country. Anti-Federation propaganda begins to be played alongside Anti-Netherlander propaganda leading many to compare the two nations policies. 50,000 troops are sent from the mainland to British Borneo (making the total number of troops fighting there on the side of the British 120,000 since commonwealth troops cannot withdraw now. But no more commonwealth troops will be deployed but the UK is the head of the commonwealth so they are allowed to deploy troops to this area) along with another 50,000 that are sent to aid the USA in Indonesia. With these units are the battleships HMS Vanguard II and HMS Britannia. We ask Portugal to look at the 1960's EU Emergency Meeting and to send support to Indonesia and Borneo. (For ANY mod: Can a mod please tell me when British Burma became independent because until I get a year that I go back and look at to confirm Burma will be considered under British rule.) (more later)
  • It was 1955, if you were a bit more proactive you might check the Archive instead of making a mod do it Burma is INDEPENDENT, it is not your place to debate what I told you, you cannot just say that it is still under your control when it is not. If the head mod in particular tells you something you listen and maybe nicely address the topic and try to debate it with him on his talk page or chat. Not on the page with direct defiance. On top of this the British commonwealth at this point recognizes many of its members as EQUAL. This means no drawing troops for their nations without their consent. This is a warning on that topic. This is considered Controlling another nation. At this point in Time the British Commonwealth was reformed into the Commonwealth of nations which recognized all commonwealth states as free and equal with the British maintaining no suzerain control over them aside from the head of state which in reality maintains no power whatsoever over those nations. You got marginal support from them this turn but your request for naval assistance for denied, and Australia has other things to worry about, particularly upwards of 300,000 troops on top of its Papuan Border. They won't be sending help when Australia is blatantly vulnerable to the Federation and Indonesian forces. Canada as well won't just ship its entire fleet overseas when the Federation has proven a match for the United States and still maintains large forces in its home territories
  • Okay I understand what you're saying but what I was saying is the Commonwealth troops that are already in Sabah cannot withdraw because they're in the middle of a battle. I will not ask for anymore troops from the commonwealth but it is simply impossible for the ones already there to leave.
  • US diplomacy: Having received the debriefing from France of the publicized EU meeting, the State Department denounces any plans by Britain to attack the Federation, hoping to resolve the conflice in Indonesia peacefully.
  • British Diplomacy: We will not allow the USA to put all the blame on us. We discussed terms with the United States and they agreed with us. So did Italy. We were not the only ones that were planning to attack and as of recent we have canceled our plans in favour of a peaceful solution. We invite all nations (including the Federation) to The London Peace Conference (Can a mod please put this in the events section as it is very important) to talk about how we can end WWIV and make our relations with the FoA and the SDP peaceful again.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Elections for the Prime Minister begin, with results coming later this year.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask Japan to send support to their American Allies in Indonesia.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio mentions to the UK that Japan is perpetually and absolutely neutral, and will forever be neutral. He also mentions that the Self Defence Forces are only, and only meant to defend Japan itself and are not meant to be deployed; nor are allowed to help any nations in foreign conflicts.
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly, with sub-genres spreading out encouraging compassion and philosophy. Such groups becoming popular include The Animals, The Temptations (playing "My Girl" this year), and The Supremes (playing "In the Name of Love"). Phil Ochs also puts out anti-war music. Many businesses in the media capitalize on the sudden popularity of soldiers in Indonesia, galvanized by the heroism of Bonesteel's defense of Pandeglang, echoing the cry "remember Bentan beach". This runs counter to the anti-war youth culture, but for the first time is not seriously undermined by it. Many popular movements enthralled by the story demand Bonesteel's release from his Nationalist PoW camp. This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push towards desegregation. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. General Pierce and his click of officers (nicknamed "the magnificent seven") continue their attack against the strongholds in Papua, backed by an additional 30,000 American troops. The Commonwealth reinforcements are directed to attack and secure southern Sulawasi, meeting up with the beachhead in the north. Naval and aerial support is given to the beachhead in northern Sulawasi, along with an additional 70,000 troops, to prevent from enemy attack. In Kalimenten, forces continue to attack both in the southern and northern fronts. With the fall of Pandeglang, the defenses of Sumatra are heavily reinforced, with the fully recovered Sumatran military now totally dedicating their efforts to resecure Kalimenten.
    • Federation Dip: With the USSR launching an outright invasion of Europe, the Federation requests the United States and Federation enter into a ceasefire and not engage in any further combat in Indonesia. We look to gradually withdraw from Indonesia and leave the islands to their own devices. We have already shed the blood of 10's of thousand in Indonesia on both sides, and I believe escalating this conflict is detrimental to the health of both our nations.
    • The US agrees to a ceasefire according to the terms of the London Peace Conference
  • Western African Federation: We continue to recruit troops and improve economy for more incomes. We are further still working on weapons to give the troops. Also the buildings, bunkers and fortresses is planned to be built in the future but not many. Our troop total might be reached to about 500,000. Indeed we need more recruitment to gain more troops.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to see prolific population growth but also sees an anti-war ideology develop in the country. This shows increasing anti-war protests but polls indicate a silent majority of the people are still in support of the conflict, seeing it as a symbol of how far the country has come. From a disunified group of nation states, to a unified front able to achieve superpower status. The Federation continues to see economic slowdown due to a large GDP percentage spent on military force. However, the Federation President keeps back hiking taxes to pay for this and instead draws down salaries of many of its politicians having the advantage to do this through many of the Federations anti-corruption legislation, and Anti business lobbying laws as well. The Federation military sees more of its equipment modernized. The Tar-15 makes its official entry onto the military scene having proven much more effective than the EM-2 in combat testing in Indonesia. The weapon is known to never having suffered a single jam in the current Battle of West Papua and the reports surrounding its use show incredible accuracy, and utility able to mount many attachments. The Federation deploys a new sniper rifle as well the M-20 bolt action sniper. The Federation continues development of its infrastructure as well with a noticeable increase in its metro system being known. The government investment into the metro and highway systems connect many of the Southern cities making settlement of many of its interior territories much easier. The Capital Area of San Salvacion sees some of the most prolific growth as well. The Federation seeing a static battle line in West Papua continues to dig in throwing down heavy defenses such as bunkers, anti tank emplacements, minefields, and other defensive fortifications. Colonel Gonzales retreats much of his force to the fortifications forgoing the previous mobile defenses for the Status but well build Indepencia defensive line. General Almagro seeing more forces coming against him deploys the remainder of his expeditionary forces from Java to Kalimintan sending an extra 50,000 to West Papua. The Federation in response to the Landing of more US forces on Sulawesi Draws back Troops deployments un Cuba from nearly 350,000 to 150,000 with the remaining forces building the Cuba defense perimeter up heavily with heavy emplacements, bunkers, and other defensive fortifications. The Federation takes these Extra 200,000 troops from Cuba, all professional soldiers unaffected by the Draft issues and many of the officers being veterans of the Cuban insurrection, and Redeploys them onto Kalimintan shifting the 70,000 man draftee force to Sulawesi rushing north to meet the US at their beach head building light fortifications quickly to prevent the US from taking more than Gondana. The Federation makes notable use of its new M-14 and M-20 attack helicopters in the defense of Sulawesi with the end of the Pandeglang Seige the Federation redeploys nearly 100,000 troops from the 300,000 strong force in Java to the middle of Sulawesi building defensive fortifications as well looking to meet the US forces halfway down the island and use the 70,000 strong force to delay the US military for as long as possible. The Federation officially brings in strategic bombers with support of the Federation air force begins the heavy strategic bombing of Sumatra proper hitting many southern cities. The Federation also joins in the final battle for Pandeglang against the Sumatran forces looking to fully secure java by the end of the year. The Federation announces its mission to send a man to the moon in 1969 having conducted many tests to support such an operation. The Federation replying to the South African plea sends 10,000 Peacekeepers a small armored core of about 100 tanks, 50 infantry fighting vehicles/APC's and deposits about 30 jet aircraft for the operation as well as 50 helicopters of transport and attack variety. (more coming later) The Federation seeing the opening stages of a Soviet Invasion of Europe attempts to reach ceasefire agreements on all fronts with the US in Indonesia.
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. The French unveil the AMX-30 their new standard MBT to replace the aging one large scale production begins as the older tanks are phased out and sold to Indochina and China. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate.French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democraticly elected government or face French intervention. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory. Support for nationalist groups in Yugoslavia begins in earnest and radio programs condemning the Yugoslav government's continued aggressions against the west and against grass root democratic movements in the civilized world.

Plans are made to turn the French Foreign Legion into a volunteer army ready to serve the Union Francaise, the forces will be made up of volunteers from Union members who wish to serve and any who serve will be granted citizenship after five years of service. Naval expansion continues and production of missile carrier subs begin. De Gaulle disgusted at how NATO has deviated from their original purpose and are pursuing a war with the Federation that could potentially end in disaster for democracy and a resurgence in Communist power declares to the public that the AMericans and British have been plotting a potential invasion of the Federation and the Brits have contemplated using nuclear weapons against innocent citizens. De Gaulle along with major figures of the Srench government and military in a public speech say that they will not support a war that could potentially end with the destruction of the civilized world and propose that all parties involved in the crisis come to the negotiation table which could be held in Paris to resolve this endless and rather pointless war. Falling in line with EU mandates 200,000 troops move into the Lowlands to dismantle the Nazi regime but all efforts to get the Dutch army to lay down arms are made as the French are ordered not to harm a people who have gone through enough turmoil by countless regime changes. The French promise to keep the EU forces in line and to make sure free and fair elections occur in the New Netherlands. More troops are sent to Romania and The French demand that the rest of the EU provide troops for what will be an inevitable war with the Warsaw Pact, 1.2 million troops are amassed for another campaign into Eastern Europe.
  • North African Departments: Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity. All of North Africa is designated as land for settlement by the French authorities as they decide that North and Saharan Africa will be retained for economic and strategic purposes. Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria. The White population continues to grow in Algeria despite some protests from the mainland over the treatment of locals and the continued bloodshed, the population currently standing at 2.5 million.
  • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begin. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (mod response, please.) The government begins increasing the power colonial subjects educated in France granting them more places in the administration. More arms are sent to the NKA to combat Communists and training of NKA officials and troops in insurgency and counterinsurgency tactics are offered due to France's recent development of suppression tactics.
    • French Indochina: With the suppression of most of the Cambodian and Laotian rebels the colonial authorities offer the more moderate members of the independence movement a chance to come to the table to discuss the establishment of the state of Cambodia and Laos as autonomous members of the Union Francaise, and The French will withdraw the majority of their forces from the region with the exception of a small force. Negotiations continue as the details are hammered out. French forces are withdrawn from parts of Cambodia and Laos as a sign of good faith.
    • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
    • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
    • British Diplomacy: We resent France claims that we would do such a thing. The UK and USA are the foremost nations in diplomatic policies and will not go to war unless absolutely necessary. Furthermore we are against using nuclear weapons unless they are a last resort and even then we think that they should not be used. We also remind you that the liberation of the Netherlands has begun and we ask you to participate in it since you were willing to lead the event.
  • Romania: We continue expanding our economy and promote immigration, especially from Egypt, where the Copts are discriminated against. We send a diplomat to the USSR, in order to talk about the current situation. We secretly support Croatian, Bosnian and Aromanian democratic rebels in Yugoslavia.. We ask Italy for military protection. We begin modernizing our airplane manufacturing base, with hope of NATO and maybe SPD investment. We mobilize our army and send them to the borders of our nation.
  • The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: After years of stagnation and getting behind the major superpowers, a small group of military commanders finally execute a military coup d'etat in Moscow, and within days, the city is overrun and most government officials either dead or in hiding. The Politburo is dismantled and replaced by a WWII-era like dictatorship, which begins a crackdown on both corruption and political dissidents at the same time. With this in mind, the General Secretary and Premier of the Soviet Union titles are merged into one, and Colonel-General Nikita Romanov, takes the power as the leader of the Soviet Union. Military and nuclear arms buildup begins, and economic expansion also begins. The new government decides to make a return to hardline Communism to restore stability to the USSR and remaining Warsaw Pact members. The nation also begins a military invasion of Romania to restore the rightful government of Romania back into power and as a desperate attempt to hold on to what little Allies the USSR has left.
  • Romanian diplomacy: We would say we are schocked, but we are not. We send the main bulk of our force, 300,000, to war the USSR in the North and in the East, while 50,000 troops are invading Bulgaria. We ask the Federation to join this war, as the world biggest threat has arisen again from the dead. We also remind you that the Communists will destroy your base in Romania. The Romanian air force bombs Soviet military installations.
    • French Response: With the Soviet invasion of Romania the 120,000 troops inside romania help the romanians resist the invasion. Meanwhile, 1.2 million troops move to engage members of the Warsaw Pact. Supported by the full strength of the French navy which moves to close off both the Baltic and the Black Seas from Soviets leaving. Once more De Gaulle moves to an undisclosed location as the posiblity of a nuclear exchange is raised. All EU members and nato countries are called on to help combat Soviet aggression. The full French air force begins engaging Soviet and Warsaw Pact forces on the Polish border and in the Balkans. The three French aircraft carriers are distributed into two groups: one heads to the Black Sea and the other two move to the Baltic Sea along with the bulk of the French navy to engage to immobilize Warsaw troops. More armor and artillery are moved to the Balkans as well and most of the French armor divisions moving into Central Europe through EU member Germany. The French leadership give the green light ot prepare tactical nukes in case Soviets become trigger happy and the nuclear arsenal is also put on high alert.
    • Soviet Counter-Response: Several tactical nuclear strikes are launched on the advancing French military, and a strategic R-7 nuclear ICBM is launched to annihilate Paris, as a warning to the French government. We threaten to do the same to Washington should the States become involved, and Nueva Asunción should the West or the Federation intervene. We immediately begin an evacuation of the new government in Moscow in the scenario of nuclear retaliation. Our nuclear arsenal is aimed at major cities across Europe and North America, with Romanov ready to release nuclear hellfire on humanity in the scenario of another nuclear exchange, which unfortunately has just begun.
    • British Diplomacy: 100,000 troops are moved into Romania along with an assortment of air and land machinery. We move the royal family to an undisclosed location for the time being.
    • No Strategic nukes. Your exact move is the main reason behind this. It is an endgame scenario not a first strike tactic. Tactical weapons are good, though. No issues there.
  • Italy: Having heard of the invasion of Romania, we declare war on the Warsaw Pact in defense of the country. We begin mobilization of parts of the armed forces (roughly 300,000) to attack through Yugoslavia with support of the full Italian air force and armor divisions, and begin returning reserve troops to service. The military obtains another 100,000 CTs, and 80,000 reserve troops enter training for effective use of them. The government continues investing in the railroad, with major progress being made. Italy requests France to allow Italian troops passage through the country, and begin mobilizing 100,000 troops to (hopefully) help liberate the Netherlands. Italy's second battleship reaches completion, and production of battleships stops to free up industries for the production of a carrier.
    • ​French Dip: Paris tells the Italians to focus on the ussr as the Dutch will be dealt with in good time but we must focus on the Soviet threat at hand. France requests that 200,000 troops be sentto join up with the French contingent invading Poland and the Czechs.
    • Italian Dip: Those 100,000 are about all we have to spare, sorry. But we will send them to help.
    • British Diplomacy: The liberation of the Netherlands is pretty much complete. About a combined force of 300,000 French and British troops invaded and has pretty much put down any rebellions. We are just waiting for a mod response.
  • Germany: With the outbreak of war the army is mobilized and war is declared on the Warsaw Pact. 100,000 troops are sent from the border of the Netherlands to the eastern front to join up the French units there. 50,000 German troops are sent to assist our Italian Allies in their invasion of Yugoslavia. Much of our industry is converted to war production and a draft begins. Production of ships, planes, and tanks picks up so our army can better support our Allies.
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow the US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on our nuclear program with the goal of making one in the mid or late 70s with Jordan help. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 90,000 troops. We join the UMS. We send some nuclear scientists to Sweden for "vacation" with their real plan to help Sweden become a nuclear power.
  • Jordan: We work on our economy and technology. We also send a nuclear scientist to work together with Syria on nuclear weapons.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin building up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”. We will continue to support Iberian nationalists in Portugal. We use the significant Spanish and Catalan population to create a party known as the Iberian party which we will support with monetary support. We will use this party to pressure the government to join Spain(MOD). We will use this party to make Androrra closer to Spain.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Moroccan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 100,000. We begin moving inland as we are running out of land on the coast to make settlements of Inal, Bennichchab, Ninmjat, Merderdra, Tmeimichat, Akjoujt and the rest of the provinces of Dakhlet Nouadhibou, Inchiri and Trarza of 35,000.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 110,000 Spaniards. We begin to seize land on the coast for inhabitation by Spaniards.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. "Moeldokos March to the Sea" was termed one of the greatest miltary operation launched by the Nationalist, and brought about the capture of 71,000 US soldiers and 90,000 Democrat soldiers. The soldiers involved in this offensive, numbering around 120,000, were immediately transported to Sulawesi to join with the additional 80,000 already present on the island, in order to push the Americans off the island. The Indonesian Navy was simultaneously directed to the Gulf of Tomini and the Molucca Sea, hoping to strangle the US Navy operating in the area. Meanwhile, the Nationalists launched an offensive into Southern Kaliman involving 285,000 troops and the majority of the Indonesian Air Force. Similarly at Papua, 250,000 Indonesian troops and 130,000 Federation troops effectively kept the US at bay. To further prevent any major incursion into Papuan soil, Indonesian troops distributed armaments and anti-aircraft equipment amongst the local nationalist militias, hoping that the guerrilla tactics utilized by these forces would result in significant US losses, and would further alienate the local tribes against the Americans in case of retaliatory US air strikes.
  • Yugoslavia begins fighting on two fronts: Romanian and Italian. We build our army and Air Force. We begin bombarding Romanian cities from the air, hoping that they'll be affected from that. We intercept any aid that Romania gets from the EU. We bombard Romania food suplies so the country can starve. We build our military. We put slightly more troops on the Italian Front so we can drive into North Italy. We don't join the EU.
    • 'British Diplomacy: You were never asked to join the European Union.
  • Israel: A new government campaign starts encouraging the people to reproduce. Population stands at 4.1 million. The State of Israel enjoys NATO and EU membership. The State finishes its first nuclear weapon and begins production of more.

The London Peace conference ends in a ceasefire for the Federation and United States but with severe issues from Sumatra and the Nationalists the potential for conflict after a US and Federation Exit is a real issue. Sumatra's military of 700,00 continues to control parts of Kalimenten, Sulawasi, and Papua handed over from the US, while Java controls parts of the same

South Africa sees a reluctant calm down in its racial tensions solely due to Federation peacekeepers preventing further conflict. Underlying resentment months later, however, begins to show through as Nelson Mandela at the head of 50,000 troops from the South African Liberation Front (SALF) make a co-ordinated attack on South African and Federation forces in Pretoria

Kurdistani resident in the Mesopotamian region uncover unknown ruins near the Persian gulf. Rather than being extremely old and decrepit stone ruins, the Advanced looking ruins are discovered buried under the ground having only come to the surface as Kurd citizens dug down to build a new settlement.

The Federation begins to see a recession as its focus on military conflict for nearly the whole decade as well as some of its state capitalist system having taken a toll on the economy

Announcement: Upon further review the Soviet invasion is retconned. Ace can't play as the USSR period. He lacks the finesse or knowledge about a Soviet battle plan in Europe to play effectively, and I really doubt everyone wants me mod eventing a whole war against Europe through a mod controlled USSR. -Feud

  • Huh. I only started the Romanian invasion when the Soviet Union did, with that being crossed out Yugoslvia is on its own in the war, against the two fronts which I can't win. So I'm asking feud to delete my last turn and start new again next turn. AH28


  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued.

"Moeldokos March to the Sea" was termed one of the greatest miltary operation launched by the Nationalist, and brought about the capture of 71,000 US soldiers and 90,000 Democrat soldiers. With the U.S withdrawal, the 285,000 troops in Kalimantan successfully pushed back the Democratic forces. These units were joined in by a further 250,000 from Papua. Along the same time, 180,000 soldiers started an offense in Sulawesi.
  • Israel: A new government campaign starts encouraging the people to reproduce. Population stands at 4.2 million. The State of Israel enjoys NATO and EU membership. The State finishes its first nuclear weapon and begins production of more.Construction of a Football Stadium in Jerusalem starts, with the intended capacity being 50.000. It will be named the Ben-Gurion Stadium.
  • The United Kingdom: We begin major conscription and enact the draft in order to build up the UK's army and make it even more powerful so that we will be able to effectively defend during the conflict in Europe.We successfully launch a rocket into space and begin recruiting citizens who are willing to be trained as astronauts. We plan on recruiting people from all over Europe. We send 250,000 troops to Yugoslavia to help Romania and Italy. The war in the Netherlands and Central Europe becomes very popular and many teens in the UK adopt the phrase "Viva Europa" (referring to the EU). With the war in Indonesia now in ceasefire we move our troops and battleships back home and effectively block off the North Sea preventing Russia from accessing the Atlantic through it. We also move a quarter of the British Navy to the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea. We send a force of 300,000 to fight on the German front and send begin bombing Yugoslavia. We move 130,000 to aid Italy. We send 50,000 troops to Israel. We ask Turkey for permission to move troops through the country so that we can get to Romania and help them (MOD PROBABLY NEEDED). We ask the United States, China, & the Federation of India to begin an assault on Siberia (MOD NEEDED). We begin placing tactical nuclear missiles in Finland. (More later) (For Mod: Were the French and British successful in liberating the Netherlands? We had about a force of 300,000 that led the invasion) The campaign in the Netherlands happened before the retconned USSR stuff so can you please tell me if we won the war or not? Also, does this mean that the war in Indonesia is still happening since the USSR events were retconned?
  • Western African Federation: Expansion of the military continues. Meanwhile, a lot of troops join and are recruited to the military. The planned buildings are bunkers and fortresses on the Northwest. The population in Lagos stands about 2,5 mil. As we began to plan to construct ships and tanks. Thus a lot concerns as Soviet Union is growing, so we decide not to join the war unless someone tells us to do so.
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly, with sub-genres spreading out encouraging compassion and philosophy. Such groups becoming popular include The Animals, The Temptations (playing "My Girl" this year), and The Supremes (playing "In the Name of Love"). Phil Ochs also puts out anti-war music. This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push towards desegregation. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. Much military is withdrawn from China as the Budapest Accords are completed, and allowing the Republican Government to defeat the remaining Communists. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. After signing the London Accords, the US hands over control of Sulawasi, Kalimenten, and Papua to the Sumatran government, and gives juristiction of maintaining peace to the peacekeeping coalition agreed in the accords. Defense spending is redevoted into the east coast military, sending two carrier fleets to directly attack the Soviet Navy in the Baltic sea. The navy stationed in the Aegean Sea cross the Helespont to help the French against the Soviets in the Black Sea. 800,000 troops are sent to help NATO drive the Soviets out of Germany, with an additional 300,000 troops to help Italy invade Yugoslavia. The entirety of American industry is devoted to the war effort. A tactical nuclear missile is prepared in Syria against the Soviet military in the Caucaus.
    • ​US dip: We ask all NATO members, including Norway and Canada, to help fight this late war against the Communists
    • US dip (to Japan and Sweden): We ask again to place defensive nuclear bases in your nation
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio accepts the US's offer to place defensive nuclear bases in Japan.
  • Italy: The use of nuclear weapons by the USSR forces Italy to ready her nuclear arsenal, however primitive it may be. After much deliberation, we have come to a decision: We have no choice but to use our submarine navy to blockade the Adriatic Sea and the Dardanelles of shipping going to the Warsaw Pact. Industry is shifted away from an aircraft carrier, which would probably not be very helpful at this stage, toward destroyers and missile cruisers. 100k more CTs reach completion, but planners know that this rate of production will be nowhere near enough to equip the entire armed forces. Those who have finished training for the use of the CTs, as well as 85,000 new reserves entering training, begin reorganization into shock corps called Truppe Tempesta capable of effectively demolishing infantry columns. Not counting those entering the shock corps, 150,000 soldiers enter the armed forces, and, after long deliberation, they are sent to reinforce troops on the Italo-Yugoslav front in order to force the Soviet Union's hand. We begin ramping up investment into an Italian nuclear program, and pull the bunker project, now codenamed Projetto Volta, off the back burner.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Elections for the Prime Minister are finished and the results are in. Suehiro Nishio is elected again for a second term.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. In more positive news huge offshore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporation. Along with this is an increased migration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields.
    • Seriously which ever one of you tossers keeps deleting my turns stop it! It's really pissing me off.
    • Jordan: We begin to work on our army with a standing army of 9000 troops. We begin to work on our nuclear weapons and produce a Syria-Jordanian nuke testing it in the Syrian desert bring Jordain pride back and begin to work on more.
    • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow the US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We also test our nuclear weapon with Jordan help in the Syrian desert and begin to work on more. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 90,000 troops. We join the UMS. We send some nuclear scientists to Sweden for "vacation" with their real plan to help Sweden become a nuclear power.
  • Kurdistan continues to focus on economic and military development, keeping a close eye on tensions between Europe and the Soviets. Clandestine support of rebels in the USSR continues, with great care being taken to ensure that this support remains secret. The Kurdish Prime Minister, personally interested in archaeology, orders a government-sanctioned investigation of the ruins found in Moesopotamia. Strangely, the ruins seem oddly modern, a relic of a surprisingly advanced civilization. Kurdish academics are thrilled.
    • French Dip: Several French Universities take an interest in the ruins recently discovered in Kurdistan and the gvernment requests permission to send archeologists to take part in the excavation of the ruins.
    • US Dip: Dr. Catherine Langford of the National Geographic Society offers to organize an expedition to help the French on their excavation, under permission of the State Department.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask the Kurdistani government for permission to join in the excavation.
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. The French unveil the AMX-30 their new standard MBT to replace the aging one large scale production begins as the older tanks are phased out and sold to Indochina and China. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate.French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democraticly elected government or face French intervention. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory. Support for nationalist groups in Yugoslavia begins in earnest and radio programs condemning the Yugoslav government's continued aggressions against the west and against grass root democratic movements in the civilized world. The French continue their space program and also commit to supporting the EU program but keeping a separate one to the EU as to avoid dependency on EU science. Construction of The first French bullet train begins. Development of the F60 begins (famas). The incident outside of Notre dame University comes as a complete shock to the French nation as it not only was the loss of life of two youths but it was the first time that a major protest had occurred against the Fourth Republic. Fearing a return to political instability de Gaulle agrees to keep a tight reign on the empire after facing increasing pressure from the right wing which now dominates the French political machine. However, de Gaulle makes a promise to keep the armed forces under control. French troops are told to make ready and march across the Dutch border should the Nazi Party not step down. The government begins looking at the rest of the dependent regions to determine which areas should be granted greater autonomy as public pressure begins to mount for an end to violence (I'm not going to let go completely of my colonies but as I discussed with Feud I will turn them into client states that are part of the Union Francaise, but won't control them directly any longer.) Plans are made to turn the French Foreign Legion into a volunteer army ready to serve the Union Francaise, the forces will be made up of volunteers from Union members who wish to serve and any who serve will be granted citizenship after five years of service. Naval expansion continues and production of missile carrier subs begin. De Gaulle disgusted at how NATO has deviated from their original purpose and are pursuing a war with the Federation that could potentially end in disaster for democracy and a resurgence in Communist power declares to the public that the AMericans and British have been plotting a potential invasion of the Federation and the Brits have contemplated using nuclear weapons against innocent citizens. De Gaulle along with major figures of the Srench government and military in a public speech say that they will not support a war that could potentially end with the destruction of the civilized world and propose that all parties involved in the crisis come to the negotiation table which could be held in Paris to resolve this endless and rather pointless war. Falling in line with EU mandates 200,000 troops move into the Lowlands to dismantle the Nazi regime but all efforts to get the Dutch army to lay down arms are made as the French are ordered not to harm a people who have goe through enough turmoil by countless regime changes. The French promise to keep the EU forces in line and to make sure free and fair elections occur in the New Netherlands. More troops are sent to Romania and The French demand that the rest of the EU provide troops for what will be an inevitable war with the Warsaw Pact, 1.2 million troops are amassed for another campaign into Eastern Europe. The French send their first rocket into space, bringing them into the space race with the other world powers.
  • North African Departments: Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity. All of North Africa is designated as land for settlement by the French authorities as they decide that North and Saharan Africa will be retained for economic and strategic purposes. Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria. The White population continues to grow in Algeria despite some protests from the mainland over the treatment of locals and the continued bloodshed, the population currently standing at 2.5 million.
    • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begin. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (mod response, please.) The government begins increasing the power colonial subjects educated in France granting them more places in the administration. More arms are sent to the NKA to combat Communists and training of NKA officials and troops in insurgency and counterinsurgency tactics are offered due to France's recent development of suppression tactics.
      • French Indochina: With the suppression of most of the Cambodian and Laotian rebels the colonial authorities offer the more moderate members of the independence movement a chance to come to the table to discuss the establishment of the state of Cambodia and Laos as autonomous members of the Union Francaise, and The French will withdraw the majority of their forces from the region with the exception of a small force. Negotiations continue as the details are hammered out. French forces are withdrawn from parts of Cambodia and Laos as a sign of good faith.
      • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
      • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin building up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”. We will continue to support Iberian nationalists in Portugal. We use the significant Spanish and Catalan population to create a party known as the Iberian party which we will support with monetary support. We will use this party to pressure the government to join Spain(MOD). We will use this party to make Androrra closer to Spain.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Moroccan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 110,000. We begin moving inland as we are running out of land on the coast to make settlements of Inal, Bennichchab, Ninmjat, Merderdra, Tmeimichat, Akjoujt and the rest of the provinces of Dakhlet Nouadhibou, Inchiri and Trarza of 45,000.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 120,000 Spaniards. We begin to seize land on the coast for inhabitation by Spaniards.
  • Sudanese-Uganda: The governmental building is two-thirds complete and the president has returned from the United States. An election for a new president from the Ugandan people have taken place. Troops are on guard as violence grows in Africa and roads and infrastructure are built and improved.
  • Republic of the Philippines: President Elizabeth Bayabos still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. Our modernisation strategy is to export vast quantities of low-cost manufactured goods to other countries while maintaining relative self-sufficiency by developing a strong agricultural base and using our own reserves of raw materials and energy. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. She continues to monopolises several "key" industries. She also begins to improve overall infrastructure, specially in the growing urban areas. She would like to increase trade with Japan and the Federation, she also offers trade with the Nationalist Indonesian government once the war is over. GDP per capita (adjusted for inflation) surpasses $2000, much higher than our neighbors. We continue to participate in the Indonesian conflict, deploying 80,000 more troops (making a total of 200,000 troops), though we would want them to fight under the Federation's command. The government denounces the British government for their ridiculous claims and we do not agree to their terms. We continue our invasion of Sarawak (and Sabah) with 200,000, 50,000 more then before troops, using our proximity, high morale, and greater population density (Sarawak is relatively "underpopulated") to our advantage, we encourage our nationalist Allies to help us. We heavily militarise our maritime borders with the British and develop our navy. We use Federation transport capabilities and ship our forces from Sulawesi to Kalimantan to attempt to retake territory and surround the surviving pro-American forces. We centralise our control of the populace by promoting a nationalist ideology. We begin expulsion of all Americans and British for safety purposes.
    • Philippine Dip: We would like the Federation to re-assert our position as a rising regional power through increased investment in our rapidly ballooning tiger economy (a GDP of above $65 billion) and strengthening military of hundreds of thousands of troops.
  • Romania: We continue secretly Aromanian, Croat and Bosnian rebels in Yugoslavia. However, we are ready to stop this if the Yugoslav government reforms to Trotskyism, instead of Stalinism. We propose a trade deal to the Soviet Union, in order to sooth up relations a bit. We also want to establish trade agreements with the Federation, France, USA, Philippines, Japan, UK, Germany, Italy and Hungary. We announce that we start developing the plane model Tunet X-1, which is gonna be able to travel with the speed of sound, and we ask for international fundin g in order to create this marvel, for this, we will sell them for a lower price to the countries that contributed. We propose the re-establishment of the United Nations. Due to some fears, the Romanian government still leaves the mobilized troops on the borders. The Romanian Archeological Institute asks the Kurdish government if it is allowed to research these ruins. We support population growth.
    • Philippine Diplomacy: We will trade with you However, we will only engage in trade extensively once trade routes are more stable. We also request that we send a total of 50,000 skilled workers to Romania so they can remit a portion of their incomes back to the Philippines as well as boosting your economy.
    • Romanian Dip: We accept.
  • Yemen: We start building our army for 25,000 to 30,000. Our first of the two destroyers is finished. We continue to sell oil at a reduced price to NATO.
  • Portugal: We continue sending people into Portuguese West AFrica to work at the oil rigs. We are very close to developing a monopoly over the new rigs. We also continue to make sure that Iberian nationalists do not take hold in Portugal.

The ruins spark a massive scientific and archaeological dig in the area from a multitude of nations with upwards of 5000 scientists and researchers coming on their own dollar begging the Kurdistani government to see this finding.

The Empire of Ethiopia announces its own finding as well inviting US, Federation, French, and Soviet scientists and researchers to the sit for limited access to the ruins.

Nelson Mandela begins to wage an unsung war in the northern regions of South Africa with an explicit plan to evict the whites from the country. His forces swell to 60,000 with potential to grow even more.

The first prisoner exchanges are scheduled to take place between US and Federation forces in March as the exit of the two powers slows down but doesn't stop the continuing Indonesian-Sumatran War.

The USSR continues to see movement towards reorganization with multiple high level Soviet generals and leaders seeking to reach amiable peace with the West and end the obvious tension between NATO and the Warsaw Pact. This re-organization push, however, brings the Ire of Khrushchev who blatantly disregards the men and sends some of the minor to remote Soviet Outposts.

An interesting trend occurs as new Soviet settlement policy brings Hundreds of thousands of Soviet citizens beyond the Urals into Siberia, and its Central Asian member states notably Kazakhstan. This policy seems to be spurred on by the Soviet government who wishes to emulate the American settlement of her frontiers.

  • Western African Federation: We continue to expand our economy and our military. More troops are recruited joining the WAF army. More ships are constructed and some tanks will be developed as well. Thus some buildings and even fortresses begin to be built, while population grows up. The industry still making progress. We might plan to build planes.

United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. General Bonesteel and his fellow officers return to the United States hailed as heroes. Many of the lesser soldiers face harsh response coming from the anti-war youth culture, however. Much military spending shifts to the Atlantic, as 300,000 troops are stationed in Romania, 150,000 in Germany, and 40,000 in Hungary. A carrier fleet is stationed to the American naval base in Greece.

Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate.French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democratically elected government or face French intervention. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory. Support for nationalist groups in Yugoslavia begins in earnest and radio programs condemning the Yugoslav government's continued aggression against the west and against grass root democratic movements in the civilized world. The French continue their space program and also commit to supporting the EU program but keeping a separate one to the EU as to avoid dependency on EU science. The French send their first rocket into space, bringing them into the space race with the other world powers. Construction of The first French bullet train begins. Development of the F60 begins (famas). The ruins in Kurdistan are seen as a major discovery for man kind as the French scientific community becomes facinated with the different findings, efforts to try to decipher the writings begin using the Rosetta Stone and cunieform as a foundation to try to see if that will work. The French government and universities are more then willing to send scientists to investigate the ruins a 230-person expedition is outfitted made up of anthropologists, archaeologists, sociologists, and specialists in diverse fields. The government begins looking at the rest of the dependent regions to determine which areas should be granted greater autonomy as public pressure begins to mount for an end to violence (I'm not going to let go completely of my colonies but as I discussed with Feud I will turn them into client states that are part of the Union Francaise, but won't control them directly any longer.) Plans are made to turn the French Foreign Legion into a volunteer army ready to serve the Union Francaise, the forces will be made up of volunteers from Union members who wish to serve and any who serve will be granted citizenship after five years of service. Naval expansion continues and production of missile carrier subs begin. De Gaulle disgusted at how NATO has deviated from their original purpose and are pursuing a war with the Federation that could potentially end in disaster for democracy and a resurgence in Communist power declares to the public that the Americans and British have been plotting a potential invasion of the Federation and the Brits have contemplated using nuclear weapons against innocent citizens. De Gaulle along with major figures of the Srench government and military in a public speech say that they will not support a war that could potentially end with the destruction of the civilized world and propose that all parties involved in the crisis come to the negotiation table which could be held in Paris to resolve this endless and rather pointless war. Falling in line with EU mandates 200,000 troops move into the Lowlands to dismantle the Nazi regime but all efforts to get the Dutch army to lay down arms are made as the French are ordered not to harm a people who have goe through enough turmoil by countless regime changes. The French promise to keep the EU forces in line and to make sure free and fair elections occur in the New Netherlands. Vocal support for the reformists in the Soviet Union is given and the French government condemns the hardliner actions of Moscow.
  • North African Departments: Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity. All of North Africa is designated as land for settlement by the French authorities as they decide that North and Saharan Africa will be retained for economic and strategic purposes. Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria. The White population continues to grow in Algeria despite some protests from the mainland over the treatment of locals and the continued bloodshed, the population currently standing at 2.5 million.
      • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begin. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (mod response, please.) The government begins increasing the power colonial subjects educated in France granting them more places in the administration. More arms are sent to the NKA to combat Communists and training of NKA officials and troops in insurgency and counterinsurgency tactics are offered due to France's recent development of suppression tactics.
        • French Indochina: With the suppression of most of the Cambodian and Laotian rebels the colonial authorities offer the more moderate members of the independence movement a chance to come to the table to discuss the establishment of the state of Cambodia and Laos as autonomous members of the Union Francaise, and The French will withdraw the majority of their forces from the region with the exception of a small force. Negotiations continue as the details are hammered out. French forces are withdrawn from parts of Cambodia and Laos as a sign of good faith.
        • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
        • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow the US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We also test four more nuclear weapons in the Syrian desert and begin to work on more with ten so far. Due to our nuclear testing people begin to party shouting ant-Israeli and pro-Syrian things. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 300,000 troops. We join the UMS. We send some nuclear scientists to Sweden for "vacation" with their real plan to help Sweden become a nuclear power.
  • Unless you were given them, there is no way you can have nukes. Also no way for you in particular as Syria to even attempt to manufacture them. -Feud
  • Israel: A new government campaign starts encouraging the people to reproduce. Population stands at 4.3 million. The State of Israel enjoys NATO and EU membership. The State finishes its first nuclear weapon and begins production of more.Construction of a Football Stadium in Jerusalem starts, with the intended capacity being 50.000. It will be named the Ben-Gurion Stadium.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land, establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. "Moeldokos March to the Sea" was termed one of the greatest miltary operation launched by the Nationalist, and brought about the capture of 71,000 US soldiers and 90,000 Democrat soldiers. With the U.S withdrawal, a total of 535,000 troops launched one of the largest offensives, aiming to capture the entirety of Kalimantan, backed by the majority of the Indonesian Armoured Corps. Along the same time, 180,000 soldiers started an offense in Sulawesi, with the Indonesian Air Force launching air raids upon Democrat positions in Sulawesi, and the Indonesian Navy attempting to strangle supplies being delivered through the Celebes Sea to the Democratic forces. Meanwhile, 95,000 troops at Papua held back the Democrats.
  • Germany: With tensions increasing in Europe elections are held this year. The German Conservative Party takes the majority vote and the CDU is no longer the leader of the country. Fearful of Soviet intentions the standing army is increased to 300,000 and the Democratic Guard is created, requiring all males aged 18-21 to serve in it for four years. Light fortifications are build across Germany's eastern border. The autobahn is completed this year. German scientists continue to research nuclear energy and assist the EU space program. We would also like to officially join NATO.    
  • Yemen: We continue building our army up to 35,000 men and create a new tank factory which will produce M47 Patton tanks.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to see prolific population growth but also sees an anti-war ideology develop in the country. This shows increasing anti-war protests but polls indicate a silent majority of the people are still in support of the conflict, seeing it as a symbol of how far the country has come. From a disunified group of nation states, to a unified front able to achieve superpower status. The Federation continues to see economic slowdown due to a large GDP percentage spent on military force. However, the Federation President keeps back hiking taxes to pay for this and instead draws down salaries of many of its politicians having the advantage to do this through many of the Federations anti-corruption legislation, and Anti business lobbying laws as well. The Federation military sees more of its equipment modernized. The Tar-15 makes its official entry onto the military scene having proven much more effective than the EM-2 in combat testing in Indonesia. The weapon is known to never having suffered a single jam in the current Battle of West Papua and the reports surrounding its use show incredible accuracy, and utility able to mount many attachments. The Federation deploys a new sniper rifle as well the M-20 bolt action sniper. The Federation continues development of its infrastructure as well with a noticeable increase in its metro system being known. The government investment into the metro and highway systems connect many of the Southern cities making settlement of many of its interior territories much easier. The Capital Area of San Salvacion sees some of the most prolific growth as well. The Federation continues development of its space program but begins lagging as it works on its receding economy. With the invitation by Ethiopia to look at the ruins a science team consisting of nearly 200 scientists and their personal guards are sent to look at the ruins.

1966.5

Intensive research from both sets of ruins in Kurdistan and Ethiopia, led many scientists to discover that these are not alien ruins, but ruins of a previous human civilization existing a long time in Earth's past. The obvious hiding of both these ruins has led many to believe the ruins were deliberately buried. The language of the ruins remains undecipherable but a considerable amount of technology is found in both nations ruin complex's leads to the deduction that the previous civilization was hightly advanced

The major world religions struggle to explain the ruins with varous theories all falling through with only the "Great Flood" being located in the distant past of many religious texts being able to explain the potential for a previously destroyed civilization

Soviet settlement of its interior continues with new townships heavily supported by the government beginning to spring up beyond the Urals. Its estimated upwards of one million Soviet citizens, mostly Russian, have settled these frontiers due to Soviet incentives and pro-active government action

The economy of most of the globalized world heads into recession with the US, Federation, UK, France, all heading into recession due to increased deficit spending. Many smaller nations tied to their economies in majoer ways enter into recessions as well.

  • Western African Federation: We continue to expand our economy and make progress with it, also for military to expand as well. More soldiers recruited in military. Some ships begin to construct as research of the tanks and planes begin. We build more bunkers and fortresses for protection of civilians.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation.
  • United States: A new era dawns as the Baby Boomer youth makes a profound impact on American culture, also known as "the beat generation". American economy and industry continues to expand exponentially as the new generation enters the labor force. Global media takes on a new shape as television, automobiles and electronic appliances are all staples of normal American life. New television shows instill the youth with a culture of sympathy and morality, and whole families begin sprawling out to live in the suburbs. Rock and Roll becomes more popular as more young artists come out monthly, with sub-genres spreading out encouraging compassion and philosophy. This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. The GFRU works with the extended Marshall plan for reconstructing Germany, while also extending American trade in China. The GFRU also has much work done in Hungary to educate the youth there about the dangers of Communism, before sending them into Yugoslavia to spread capitalist thought there. A series of boycotts in Alabama in recent years causes some states to push towards desegregation. American bases are stationed in China, Vietnam, Greece, and Siberia, with naval bases aiding Turkey's blockade of the Aegean Sea. United States foreign policy begins a "pivot to Europe" as it rededicates its efforts to prevent the spread of Communism in western Europe, while pulling out of Asia. 5000 troops are stationed in the southern border to prevent illegal immigraion. Defensive nuclear weapons are stationed on the US Virgin Islands for fear of Cuba. The military attempts to keep Dr. Langford's discoveries secret, but journalists quickly infiltrate military intelligence and reveal the anomolous nature of the artifacts to the country. The US sends a team of scientists to Ethiopia. Germany is accepted in NATO and likewise Austria and Hungary are offered membership, who are already given foreign financial aid.
  • Italy: The discoveries of the recent years shock officials and citizens alike, forcing them to question what they had previously accepted as true. Conspiracy nuts begin shouting about how the governments of the world were keeping the technology secret from the public until "the people were ready," but the government makes an announcement that they had no clue the ruins were there either until their discovery was broadcast. Italy requests to send its own scientists into Kurdistan and Ethiopia to see if they can study, and perhaps carbon date, the ruins. The time period of the ruins might help identify how great their discovery really is. With the recent recessions, the government begins to slow investment in infrastructure, though the trans-Italian railroad had already reached completion. The government begins to look for ways to alleviate the poverty brought on by the recession. Military spending, much to the chagrin of anti-war proponents, continues, albeit with minor cutbacks, with continued investment into modernizing Italy's nuclear arsenal, and, starting soon, into nuclear energy. The TT corps continue being organized into an effective fighting force, but many of the non-shock troops are returned to the reserves with the passing of the threat of Soviet invasion.
  • Saudi Arabia: With a recession resulting from issues in the economies of mainly non-SDP nations, we propose to the SDP to commence Operation: Autarky. By this, we mean that the corporation tax imposed by a resolution we proposed earlier will be exempt for SDP only companies, and the corporation tax on foreign companies will be 20%. Saudi Arabia will begin a tariff on all goods from non-SDP nations, beginning at 20%. We will begin a tax on "foreigners" targeted at people making a Hajj, with all goods they buy costing an extra 20%. The money that the SDP has stockpiled over the years from our central taxes should be reinvested in our economies and the SDP central stock exchange. Saudi Arabia, somewhat out of necessity, is becoming more industrial, though the majority of our population and economy is oil-based. Out of fear of a possible Syrian nuclear weapon, and more importantly a nuclear war involving Syria and Israel, we ask for either nukes to be supplid to us by the Federation or for them to station nukes in Saudi Arabia.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. In more positive news huge offshore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporations. Along with this is an increased migration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin building up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”. We will continue to support Iberian nationalists in Portugal. We use the significant Spanish and Catalan population to create a party known as the Iberian party which we will support with monetary support. We will use this party to pressure the government to join Spain(MOD). We will use this party to make Andorra closer to Spain.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Moroccan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 130,000. We begin moving inland as we are running out of land on the coast to make settlements of Inal, Bennichchab, Ninmjat, Merderdra, Tmeimichat, Akjoujt and the rest of the provinces of Dakhlet Nouadhibou, Inchiri and Trarza of 65,000.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 140,000 Spaniards. We begin to seize land on the coast for inhabitation by Spaniards.
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. The French unveil the AMX-30 their new standard MBT to replace the aging one large scale production begins as the older tanks are phased out and sold to Indochina and China. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate.French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa.

The ruins in Kurdistan are seen as a major discovery for man kind as the French scientific community becomes facinated with the different findings, efforts to try to decipher the writings begin using the Rosetta Stone and cunieform as a foundation to try to see if that will work. The French government and universities are more then willing to send scientists to investigate the ruins a 230-person expedition is outfitted made up of anthropologists, archaeologists, sociologists, and specialists in diverse fields. Reserach continues. The government and military take a greater interest in the ruins upon discovering the fact that they were from an ancient race of advanced technology. A few pieces are requested for further research in the security of French secret labs. The government begins looking at the rest of the dependent regions to determine which areas should be granted greater autonomy as public pressure begins to mount for an end to violence (I'm not going to let go completely of my colonies but as I discussed with Feud I will turn them into client states that are part of the Union Francaise, but won't control them directly any longer.) Plans are made to turn the French Foreign Legion into a volunteer army ready to serve the Union Francaise, the forces will be made up of volunteers from Union members who wish to serve and any who serve will be granted citizenship after five years of service. Naval expansion continues and production of missile carrier subs begin. De Gaulle disgusted at how NATO has deviated from their original purpose and are pursuing a war with the Federation that could potentially end in disaster for democracy and a resurgence in Communist power declares to the public that the Americans and British have been plotting a potential invasion of the Federation and the Brits have contemplated using nuclear weapons against innocent citizens.

The French promise to keep the EU forces in line and to make sure free and fair elections occur in the New Netherlands. Vocal support for the reformists in the Soviet Union is given and the French government condemns the hardliner actions of Moscow. French intelligence increases its actvities throughout Eastern Europe.
  • North African Departments: Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity.

The Harki are granted the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria. The White population continues to grow in Algeria despite some protests from the mainland over the treatment of locals and the continued bloodshed, the population currently standing at 2.5 million.
    • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begins. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (mod response, please.) The government begins increasing the power colonial subjects educated in France granting them more places in the administration. More arms are sent to the NKA to combat Communists and training of NKA officials and troops in insurgency and counterinsurgency tactics are offered due to France's recent development of suppression tactics. It is decided that the south of French Equatorial Africa will prepped for indendence as the State of the Congo (including Gabon) and the Central African State. As French Client States, while the North OTL Chad has been designated for further development. In French West Africa the Interior regions (Niger and Mali) are designated for further development and potential settlement due to the low populations in those areas and large potential for economic exploitation should settlement grow in the region, while the rest of the region is designated to be prepped for a transition from dependencies to client states, within the Union Francaise.
      • French Indochina: With the suppression of most of the Cambodian and Laotian rebels the colonial authorities offer the more moderate members of the independence movement a chance to come to the table to discuss the establishment of the state of Cambodia and Laos as autonomous members of the Union Francaise, and the French will withdraw the majority of their forces from the region with the exception of a small force. Negotiations continue as the details are hammered out. French forces are withdrawn from parts of Cambodia and Laos as a sign of good faith.
      • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
      • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.
  • Republic of the Philippines: President Elizabeth Bayabos still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. Though our export-oriented growth strategy makes us prone to changes in external demand, our strong agricultural base and relatively large energy industry causes our economy to still grow rapidly despite recession and slowdown in our largest consumer market, the Federation and Japan. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. She encourages the rapid growth of business conglomerates. The government also begins to improve overall infrastructure, specially in the growing urban areas. According to official statistics, our population stands at 33.7 million people, growing by 1.25% since last semester. Our total real GDP is at $74 billion, with GDP per capita being $2200. We continue to participate in the Indonesian conflict on the side of the Nationalists with 200,000 troops. The navy is improved and trade routes are secured. We condemn the suppression of Cambodian and Laotian rebels by the imperialist French and support the decolonisation of Asia and Africa.
  • Romania: We continue secretly Aromanian, Croat and Bosnian rebels in Yugoslavia. However, we are ready to stop this if the Yugoslav government reforms to Trotskyism, instead of Stalinism. We propose a trade deal to the Soviet Union, in order to sooth up relations a bit. We also want to establish trade agreements with the Federation, Yemen, USA, Saudi Arabia, Kurdistan, Israel and Hungary. We announce that we start developing the plane model Tunet X-1, which is gonna be able to travel with the speed of sound, and we ask for international funding in order to create this marvel, for this, we will sell them for a lower price to the countries that contributed. We propose the re-establishment of the United Nations. Due to some fears, the Romanian government still leaves the mobilized troops on the borders. We support population growth.
    • British Diplomacy: We support the re-establishment of the UN and send troops to Romania to help fortify the border between it and Yugoslavia.
  • The United Kingdom: We stop investing in the build up of our army since Europe is currently in a brief period of peace. Our army now stands at nearly 900,000. We continue to work on decoding the language written on the Kurdistanti ruins. We work on setting up a new government in the North part of the Netherlands while the French help the South. We continue the buildup of spaceships and plan on launching a rocket in 1968 with other members of the EU. We also officially announce that we will no longer be buying oil or really anything with Saudi Arabia since it is now pretty unfavourable. Instead we make major investments in Kurdistan, Kuwait, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Canada, USA, and the Scandinavian nations which have oil.
  • Israel: A new government campaign starts encouraging the people to reproduce. Population stands at 4.4 million. The State of Israel enjoys NATO and EU membership. The State finishes its first nuclear weapon and begins production of more.Construction of the Ben-Gurion Stadium finishes.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation with the end of our involvement in the Indonesian conflict, begins a drastic drawback in its military deployments from Indonesia bringing back all soldiers from Indonesia but remains with an open and powerful relationship with the nationalists. The Federation begins major measures to fix its economy including the consideration of the Saudi Autarky. This somewhat stabilizes the Recession but the military spending is cut back considerably with much military equipment being mothballed or stored for later use in a conflict. The Federation in general maintains a military force that in preparation for a World War, two separate times has led to thousands upon thousands of tanks, APC's" IFV's trucks, and all other sorts of infantry and aeronautical equipment. The Federation with the research in Ethiopia going on in earnest, manages to ship home multiple examples of technology from the Ethiopian ruins and beginning intense forays into figuring out how it works. With it being to work on an modern electrical grid with some adaptation the technology brought home is discovered to be a computer. The research, however, stalls out as the inability to decipher or deal with the language leaving many linguists and researchers confused. The Federation besides many of its spending cutbacks continues the development and building of new warships specifically a new class of Aircraft carrier to be updated with modern technology and to further phase out some of the older non nuclear driven ships. The Federation also begins an expansive campaign to expand its Ballistic missile fleet to nearly 30 submarines. The Federations expanded highway and metro system shows notable usage as the improvements have linked cities like never before with hundreds of thousands of people being able to travel between these cities notably between the new centralized capital and the majority of the Southern Cities of the Federation. San Salvación in response to the huge migration flood from the overpopulated coast with initially just one million expanding on the already 1.5 million population of the city, turning into five million with satellite towns and cities springing up. The Federation also shows major development of its airport systems with the Saõ Paulo airport becoming one of the busiest in the world. The Federation being one of the largest oil producers in the world, cuts prices to low levels crashing out various investments by undercutting their prices significantly tanking the profit hit by utilizing various legislations to prevent the companies leaders from keeping their inordinately large sums of money as self profit.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land, establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. "Moeldokos March to the Sea" was termed one of the greatest miltary operation launched by the Nationalist, and brought about the capture of 71,000 US soldiers and 90,000 Democrat soldiers. With the U.S withdrawal, the Indonesian High Command began Operation Downfall, initiating a series of incursions in Kalimantan and Sulawesi against the Democratic forces. A total of 535,000 troops launched one of the largest offensives, aiming to capture the entirety of Kalimantan, backed by the majority of the Indonesian Armoured Corps. Along the same time, 180,000 soldiers started an offense in Sulawesi, with the Indonesian Air Force launching air raids upon Democrat positions in Sulawesi, and the Indonesian Navy attempting to strangle supplies being delivered through the Celebes Sea to the Democratic forces. Meanwhile, 95,000 troops at Papua held back the Democratic army.
  • Yemen: We keep building our army but choose not to expand the numbers any longer although we continue with the construction of the M47 Patton Tank. We continue working on our education and finally remove Sharia law from our justice system.

1967.0

The Nationalist offensives on the Sumatran forces keep them off balance as Nationalists make some gains creating various fractures in the Sumatran Lines.

After some meddling with the technology in Ethiopia the ruins show a massive sign of activity with notable activity in what seem to be highly advanced computers. Some deciphering of the information is required before figuring out what this has done

A large unknown comet streaks precisely over the equator of Earth doing a full rotation alarming millions of people believing this phenomenon to signal an impact. Many scientists with some observation believe the comet to be heavily metallic in nature and has no potential of a terrestrial fall.

The Technology brought home by many of the researching powers of these ruins makes a miraculous discovery of a heavily active program using unknown means to catalogue and learn Languages of the studying powers. Leading scientists trading notes across the world notice the same phenomena with all the computer technology taken from the ruins.

The Recession globally shows some signs of stopping but overall a separation between NATO and SDP members in terms of economics becomes apparent with Industry heavy nations of Mexico, the Federation and more recently India becoming the industrial leaders of the SDP's economic bloc, while the US, France, Germany, and the UK become the industrial leaders of the other economic group. Economists refer to these two Economic blocs, as the Northern Industrial Group, and the Southern Industrial Group giving a clear separation in the flow of goods.

While investment occurring into alternative oil sources occurs, the Federations cuts in oil prices causes many smaller investment firms into oil and natural gas to fail due to the huge undercut in price. Larger firms remain strong as the Oil price undercut isn't complete due to the lack of Saudi participation in the price drop.

Fearing nationalist aggression from Spain, the Principality of Andorra asks the French government for military aid

  • Western African Federation: We continue to gather more economy, as some incomes continue to rise slowly. Also more soldiers are recruiting and joining the army which can see us in a good position of defensive and offensive chance. We think more bunkers and fortresses needed, while infrastructure begins to expand. The population is still grwoing and we think that it has more of them. We begin to build many roads and railways for a transport between bordering countries. Industry keeps more progress to invest.
  • The United Kingdom: We ask all members of the EU to review the 1960's EU Emergency Meeting. We make major investments in EU nations causing our GDP to grow. We place peacemakers in the Northern Netherlands to help the nation to stabilise while the French place them in the South but the Netherlands as a whole is considered a state under the EU. The British make major advances on the EU's space programme. We warn the Republic of Ireland that if it decides to change to a nationalist or fascist state then its fate will be the same as the Neo-Nazi regime of the Netherlands.
  • United States: American industry continues to improve in spite of the recent recession, due to the continued exportation of resources and growing labor force, and thereby become a leader of the Northern Industrial Group. The Baby Boomer generation continues to emphasize the youth-based culture, stressing the creed "love not war" and otherwise bringing a reformist conscience to America. This highly-involved youth, not wanting another conflict in Europe, begin protesting the government to seek reconcilliation with the USSR. The Civil Rights Movement continues to pick up steam as Martin Luther King leads the cause of African Americans. Science Fiction and Superhero television grow in national popularity, which all espouse good philosophical values under the Censorship Bureau. NASA continues to make breakthroughs in space exploration, sending new lunar landing modules this year. Military and naval bases continue to be manned around the world, particularly in East Asia and Central Europe. The blockade of the Aegean continues. NASA uses satellite imagery to photograph the strange object, and quickly the revealed dimensions and material of the UFO are leaked to the public.
  • Republic of the Philippines: The president still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. Despite changes in external demand (our economy is export-oriented) our economy continues to grow at a rapid rate, much faster than our neighbours and comparable to Japan in terms of growth. Massive decreases in the price of oil benefit the industrial sector of our economy. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. She encourages the rapid growth of business conglomerates. The government also begins to improve overall infrastructure, specially in the growing urban areas. She improves human capital so that we can avoid the “middle-income trap”; middle-income countries may lose their competitive edge due to high manufacturing prices compared to low-wage economies and lack of innovation compared to high-income economies. We continue to participate in the Indonesian conflict on the side of the Nationalists with 200,000 troops. The navy is improved and trade routes are secured. We condemn the suppression of Cambodian and Laotian rebels by the imperialist French and support the decolonisation of Asia and Africa.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continues expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation.

  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation with the end of our involvement in the Indonesian conflict, begins a drastic drawback in its military deployments from Indonesia bringing back all soldiers from Indonesia but remains with an open and powerful relationship with the nationalists. The Federation begins major measures to fix its economy including the consideration of the Saudi Autarky. This somewhat stabilizes the Recession but the military spending is cut back considerably with much military equipment being mothballed or stored for later use in a conflict. The Federation in general maintains a military force that in preparation for a World War, two separate times has led to thousands upon thousands of tanks, APC's" IFV's trucks, and all other sorts of infantry and aeronautical equipment. The Federation with the research in Ethiopia going on in earnest, manages to ship home multiple examples of technology from the Ethiopian ruins and beginning intense forays into figuring out how it works. With it being to work on an modern electrical grid with some adaptation the technology brought home is discovered to be a computer. The research, however, stalls out as the inability to decipher or deal with the language leaving many linguists and researchers confused. The Federation besides many of its spending cutbacks continues the development and building of new warships specifically a new class of Aircraft carrier to be updated with modern technology and to further phase out some of the older non nuclear driven ships. The Federation also begins an expansive campaign to expand its Ballistic missile fleet to nearly 30 submarines. The Federations expanded highway and metro system shows notable usage as the improvements have linked cities like never before with hundreds of thousands of people being able to travel between these cities notably between the new centralized capital and the majority of the Southern Cities of the Federation. San Salvación in response to the huge migration flood from the overpopulated coast with initially just one million expanding on the already 1.5 million population of the city, turning into five million with satellite towns and cities springing up. The Federation also shows major development of its airport systems with the Saõ Paulo airport becoming one of the busiest in the world. The Federation being one of the largest oil producers in the world, cuts prices to low levels crashing out various investments by undercutting their prices significantly tanking the profit hit by utilizing various legislations to prevent the companies leaders from keeping their inordinately large sums of money as self profit. The Federation requests that Saudi Arabia follow the Federations suit with the oil price drop to force out the larger competitors as well
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. The French unveil the AMX-30 their new standard MBT to replace the aging one large scale production begins as the older tanks are phased out and sold to Indochina and China. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate.French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democratically elected government or face French intervention. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory. Support for nationalist groups in Yugoslavia begins in earnest and radio programs condemning the Yugoslav government's continued aggression against the west and against grass root democratic movements in the civilized world. The French continue their space program and also commit to supporting the EU program but keeping a separate one to the EU as to avoid dependency on EU science. The French send their first rocket into space, bringing them into the space race with the other world powers. Construction of the first French bullet train begins. Development of the F60 begins (famas). The ruins in Kurdistan are seen as a major discovery for man kind as the French scientific community becomes facinated with the different findings, efforts to try to decipher the writings continue despite previous failures. The French government and universities are more then willing to send scientists to investigate the ruins a 230-person expedition is outfitted made up of anthropologists, archaeologists, sociologists, and specialists in diverse fields. Research continues. The government and military take a greater interest in the ruins upon discovering the fact that they were from an ancient race of advanced technology. A few pieces are requested for further research in the security of French secret labs. The advanced tech discovered in the pieces taking home are placed in highly secure facilities and the research is placed under a gag order with only general information reaching the public. Efforts to tinker with the computer and tech begin using the most modern technology the French have avaliable to uncover its secrets. Plans are made to turn the French Foreign Legion into a volunteer army ready to serve the Union Francaise, the forces will be made up of volunteers from Union members who wish to serve and any who serve will be granted citizenship after five years of service. Naval expansion continues and production of missile carrier subs begin. . Vocal support for the reformists in the Soviet Union is given and the French government condemns the hardliner actions of Moscow. French intellegence increases its actvities throughout Eastern Europe.
  • North African Departments: Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity. All of North Africa is designated as land for settlement by the French authorities as they decide that North and Saharan Africa will be retained for economic and strategic purposes. Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria. The White population continues to grow in Algeria despite some protests from the mainland over the treatment of locals and the continued bloodshed, the population currently standing at 2.5 million.
      • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begins. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (mod response, please.) The government begins increasing the power colonial subjects educated in France granting them more places in the administration. More arms are sent to the NKA to combat Communists and training of NKA officials and troops in insurgency and counterinsurgency tactics are offered due to France's recent development of suppression tactics. It is decided that the south of French Equatorial Africa will prepped for indendence as the State of the Congo (including Gabon) and the Central African State. As French Client States, while the North OTL Chad has been designated for further development. In French West Africa the Interior regions (Niger and Mali) are designated for further development and potential settlement due to the low populations in those areas and large potential for economic exploitation should settlement grow in the region, while the rest of the region is designated to be prepped for a transition from dependencies to client states, within the Union Francaise.
        • French Indochina: With the suppression of most of the Cambodian and Laotian rebels the colonial authorities offer the more moderate members of the independence movement a chance to come to the table to discuss the establishment of the state of Cambodia and Laos as autonomous members of the Union Francaise, and the French will withdraw the majority of their forces from the region with the exception of a small force. Negotiations continue as the details are hammered out. French forces are withdrawn from parts of Cambodia and Laos as a sign of good faith.
        • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
        • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection.

Bases in the Levant will remain there to protect the region and keep the piece.
        • French Dip: The French offer protection to the principality of Andorra and promise to keep it out of the Spanish state should that be their desire.
  • Kurdistan: Focuses on aggressively searching developing and reproducing the new technologies discovered in the ruins. Large amounts of resources and funding are focused on the possible commercial and military applications of this technology. Kurdistan announces that any removal of this technology from Kurdish land by foreign researchers will result in their immediate expulsion from the sites. The economy begins to adversely impacted by the drop in oil prices; the Kurdish government begins preparing contingency plans for drastically cutting global oil supply, with the military being readied.
    • French Dip: The French request permission to borrow parts of the tech with Kurdistan receiving a report on all discoveries made as Paris would be a better place to look at the tech rather then Kurdistan, or that the government allows the French to set up facilities in Kurdistan to better examine the tech.
    • Italian Dip: We request that Italian archaeologists be able to, if not examine the technology outside of the country, examine the ruins.
  • Federation of the Levant: On 17 March 1967 a historical document was signed, forever binding the Free State of the Levant and the State of Israel. The first president of the Federation, Haris Ben Haim, announces that every man and woman in either Israel or the Free State will get a Levantine passport and Levantine citizenship. A constituion is made. The Federation will be a secular state, with freedom of religion to everyone. Jerusalem is the national capital. 17 March is also named a national holiday, named Unification Day.
  • ​Italy: Begins buying cheap oil in bulk in order to build a stockpile while the price is low. We continue producing destroyers and missile cruisers. We also continue modernizing the country's nuclear arsenal, and continue with the Vault Project. (Not even going to bother with keeping it in Italian at this point.) The government, feeling rather left out of the recent string of ancient discoveries, begins sponsoring archaeological digs in old Roman territories to see whether the Romans might have been related to, or at least aware of, these advanced ancients. We also restart investment in industry, and continue investing in nuclear energy.
  • Poland: Finished the democratic and capitalist transformation. The regime in Poland has called Polish socialism, combine the best of Communism and capitalism (at least tried). People demand the lifting of martial law. Poland sends the request to NATO in case of danger to protect Poland from Soviet invasion.

    • US Dip: The US accepts Poland into NATO to protect it from its former compatriots in the Warsaw Pact.

1967.5

Using satellite images captured by the US and USSR, the strange comet turns out to be a clearly artifical device of unknown origin or purpose. The US, USSR, French and Federation governments all deny creating such a device, but simultaneously suspect each other of testing secret technology. After eight months, the "comet" returns to outer space using some sort of internal propulsion.

Non-violent protests begin Krakow, demanding the end of martial law in Poland, led by Cardinal Karol Wojtyla.

A series of episodes of violence begins in the Levant, as local Arab groups of Druze and Alawite origin refuse to coexist with Israeli settlements. News of the violence quickly spreads to the Arabs in Palestine.

The Baby Boomer Generation in the Federation, US, France and Britain escalate their creed of "Make Love not War" and demand peaceful reconcilliation with the USSR.

A major flood hits Lisbon, Portugal and kills over 400 people.

  • Federation of the Levant: The first president of the Federation, Haris Ben Haim, announces that every man and woman in either Israel or the Free State will get a Levantine passport and Levantine citizenship. A constituion is made. The Federation will be a secular state, with freedom of religion to everyone. Jerusalem is the national capital. 17 March is also named a national holiday, named Unification Day. The nation currently has four nuclear weapons, with three more under consturction. President Ben Haim announces that the Jewish national identity is something of the past, and that instead a Levantine identity will be adopted. All people of the Levant are equal, be it Muslim, Jewish or Christian. Some troublemakers are arrested but are treated well and released to show goodwill. Extra policemen are recruited as a safety measure. French is adopted as the third national language of the Federation, alongside both Hebrew and Arabic. Any citizen who seeks to learn one of these languages will be aided in this by the Federation. The Federation internally discusses the possibility of extraterrestrials landing on Earth and increases research into space, inclduing the construction of several observatories. It also notices the timing of the discovery of the ruins and the arrival of this weird activity. No official connections are established, but the Federation notes them.
  • Western African Federation: We continue to improve infrastructure and military. Construction of the buildings, bunkers and fortresses still continue for the purposes of defense. More roads and highways built. (Short turn because I went to sleep)
  • Yemen: Our army - while remaining at the same number of troops - we start constructing tanks with the first M47 Patton tanks rolling off our brand new production line. We start funding separatists in Yugoslavia and arrange an assassination attempt on Tito. We continue reforming our education system and more and more people are beginning to take technology jobs. We start funding the ELF in Eritrea in an attempt to cause a revolt.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. In more positive news huge offshore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporations. Along with this is an increased migration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields.
  • Jordan: King Khalid Mudallal was on a car ride through the city, when he suddenly fainted. Doctors find the results and found he is in coma, causing the second-in-command, Ayman Ibn-Kathir, to rule.

  • Italy: When the Italian government sees pictures of the "comet," officials have a hard time assuaging the fears of the masses. In fact, if anything, the government is just as panicked. The fact that aliens can and do exist is a shock to the people beyond any Soviet threat, especially considering the recent weakening of Soviet influence in Eastern Europe. The government continues modernizing its nuclear arsenal, and constructing destroyers and missile cruisers. The Vault Project continues as planned, with the first set of bunkers planned to be able to house an additional two million people by 1970.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continue expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation.
  • Poland left the Warsaw Pact. Poland jointed the EU, but didn't join NATO because we don't want to complicate relations with the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact even more.
  • The United Kingdom: We continue the buildup of a nuclear arsenal in case of a possible alien attack. Support for the new Netherlands government continues as well as support in Romania during its tensions with Yugoslavia. We think the SDP's new policies are ridiculous and effectively stop trading with the Federation and Saudi Arabia but continue trade with Commonwealth SDP members for the time being. We announce our plan to launch a rocket into space next year and in preparation begin sending more EU and British satellites into space. We also make major investment in China, Korea, Japan, Canada, and Australia.

Kurdistan and Ethiopia make miraculous gains in their industries, creating thriving industrial centers that outstrip the agricultural sector. This sets both nations leaps and bounds ahead of some of their immediate neighbors

The field of Computer Science makes surprising gains as well in the nations of the US, Federation, and France. The recent microprocessor allows for much smaller and cheaper computers to be manufactured, opening the market for developments in robotics, language programming, and e-mail services. IBM annoucnes they will soon have the Personal Computer (PC)

Two more ancient ruins similar to the ones found in Kurdistan also appear in East Asia. One of these are found in southern Sulawasi, Indonesia during a military expedition, and the other is found by Japanese Archaeologists in northern Honshu. Being in a relatively stable nation, Japan becomes inundated by historians, scientists, and UFO enthusiasts alike seeking after the new artifacts

Tito, the dictator of Yugoslavia, is assassinated by people claiming to be capitalist syphothizers from Hungary. Within weeks, a military coup overthrows the Communist government and sets up a military regime. Some of the Communist leaders, however, manage to escape and disappear, either fleeing the nation or going underground. The US and France deny any foreknowledge of this

As violent episodes continue sporadically in the Levant, certain gangs of teenagers form who begin lobbying rocks and sticks at the Israeli Police, but soon after disappear. This guerrilla fighting is seen by some as the beginning of an Intifada

  • There is no Israeli police. Israel doesn't exist anymore.

  • Western African Federation: We continue to improve infrastructure and military. We recruit more troops in the army. The buildings begin to build in Lagos which, meanwhile, population grows. We think rebels aren't in Africa yet, so we think there's no clue to see rebels coming in Africa. The development of the weapons still developing, as we had already guns in our country. Industry is still working its income.
    • The US: Invites the WAF into NATO
    • WAF Dip: We're joining NATO.
    • Federation: We withdraw our military and monetary investments from the WAF.
  • United States: American industry continues to improve in spite of the recent recession, due to the continued exportation of resources and growing labor force, and thereby become a leader of the Northern Industrial Group. The Baby Boomer generation continues to emphasize the youth-based culture, stressing the creed "love not war" and otherwise bringing a reformist conscience to America. This highly-involved youth, not wanting another conflict in Europe, begin protesting the government to seek reconcilliation with the USSR. The Civil Rights Movement continues to pick up steam as Martin Luther King leads the cause of African Americans. Science Fiction and Superhero television grow in national popularity, which all espouse good philosophical values under the Censorship Bureau.

  • Federation of the Levant: The first president of the Federation, Haris Ben Haim, announces that every man and woman in either Israel or the Free State will get a Levantine passport and Levantine citizenship. A constituion is made. The Federation will be a secular state, with freedom of religion to everyone. Jerusalem is the national capital. 17 March is also named a national holiday, named Unification Day. The nation currently has four nuclear weapons, with three more under consturction. Police are ordered to arrest troublemakers, but they are also ordered to not resort to violence. Troublemakers who are captured are all freed after a maximum of two days in prison. Muslim men are sent to convince the troublemakers that the Levantine government is not Jewish. With the appearence of even more ruins the Levantine government internally concludes that the connection with the extraterrestial activity can no longer be questioned. It asks Kurdistan to share some of the archeological findings for research, while also ensruing that these findings will be returned once we have researched them.
  • French Dip: French troops help keep the peace in the Levant and Paris secretly begins sending tech to the Levant to help it come up to speed tech and industrial wise. The government also decides it is time to help the levant develop nuclear enegy.
  • Romania: We continue secretly Aromanian, Croat and Bosnian rebels in Yugoslavia. However, we are ready to stop this if the Yugoslav government reforms to Trotskyism, instead of Stalinism. We propose a trade deal to the Soviet Union, in order to sooth up relations a bit. We also want to establish trade agreements with the Federation, Yemen, USA, Saudi Arabia, Kurdistan, Israel and Hungary. We announce that we start developing the plane model Tunet X-1, which is gonna be able to travel with the speed of sound, and we ask for international funding in order to create this marvel, for this, we will sell them for a lower price to the countries that contributed. We propose the re-establishment of the United Nations. Due to some fears, the Romanian government still leaves the mobilized troops on the borders. We support population growth. We recognize Poland as independent.
  • Yemen Dip: We agree to trade agreements with Romania.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continue expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio launches an investigation of the artefacts to learn more about it.
    • German Dip: We ask to send German scientists to excavate and study the ruins in your country.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio kindly declines the offer.
    • French Dip: The French request full access to the ruins and promise to help the japanese unlock its secrets along with provide research the French have already uncovered in a bi-national effort to advance both nation's interests.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio accepts France's offer.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernization of many transport sectors of the colony. The national guard stands at 3000 men. The colonial government also encourages emigration from Portugal and Spain to increase the educated labour reserve without having to risk any rebellions by educated natives. To cope with the ever-increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola. In more positive news huge offshore oil fields have been discovered in the enclave of Cabinda, drawing much investment into the area by oil corporations. Along with this is an increased migration of whites to the state to work in the new oil fields.
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow the US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 10,000 troops. We join the UMS. Seeing an Intifada in Levant some Syrian generals allow Levant rebels to set up bases in Syria and some going as far as giving them training in the camps and have imams come to camp in hope of creating religious groups, with one group calling itself jaysh alrbb (army of god).
  • Germany: The German economy booms after a short recession. The German army is modernized and troops continue to train in the latest doctrines. More money is poured into our nuclear energy project. We welcome Poland to the free world and offer them a trade agreement. We start to send funds and weapons across the border into Czechoslovakia to fund democratic and Slovakian rebels there.
  • Republic of the Philippines: President Elizabeth Bayabos still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. Though our export-oriented growth strategy makes us prone to changes in external demand, our strong agricultural base and relatively large energy industry causes our economy to still grow rapidly despite recession and slowdown in our largest consumer market, the Federation and Japan. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. She encourages the rapid growth of business conglomerates. The government also begins to improve overall infrastructure, specially in the growing urban areas. We end our participation in the Indonesian Civil war and withdraw all our troops. The navy is improved and trade routes are secured. We condemn the suppression of Cambodian and Laotian rebels by the imperialist French and support the decolonisation of Asia and Africa.
  • The United Kingdom: The British, along with other members of the EU, launch our first spaceship, Britannia, this year. It is a great success and we plan on sending people to the moon in the early seventies. The Queen visits the Autonomous Territory of Sudanese-Uganda to observe the government and greet the leaders there. We continue to study the Kurdistani, Ethiopian, and now Israeli ruins. We wish to buy PC's from the USA when they are ready.

We continue sending troops into Romania and support rebels in Yugoslavia as well as Czechoslovakia. We also begin major reforms in the Northern Netherlands and Sabah.
    • Too early for spaceships for the EU. The Superpowers are crash coursing this and are barely doing that, you guys are at least 5-7 years behind them. -Feud
  • France: Naval expansion continues as new carriers are being constructed to replace the old ones. Industrial production increases as what will probably be the largest war in human history is about to begin. Conscription begins across France and the colonies which are slowly being transformed into semi-autonomous states within the Union Francaise. Development of a new rifle begins using bullpup designs with a prototype being developed. Paris continues to decentralize power from the homeland to local elites in the colonies namely of French, mixed or assimlilated origins in the process of turning the empire into a union of semi-autonomous states. Production of nuclear weapons continue as France strives to build an ICBM. The French unveil the AMX-30 their new standard MBT to replace the aging one large scale production begins as the older tanks are phased out and sold to Indochina and China. After long years of continued service the troops that served in the suppression of the Algerian revolt, in the Suez crisis and in the recent attempt to start the liberation of Eastern Europe are granted extra pay, and many are giving extended leave from the forces to rest. De Gaulle is hailed by many in France as the man who is restoring French power abroad. Paris demands that the Egyptians end all funding to movements. Economic growth starts to pick up as industrial production continues at a large rate.French authorities consider intervening in the violence the Congo to prevent a spread to French Central Africa. Paris refuses to recognize the new government in the Netherlands and demands that they hand power over a democratically elected government or face French intervention. Efforts to up the pressure on Communism grow as support for a pro-democracy radio channel in Eastern Europe starts, and the government requests that Romania allow the group to operate from within Romanian territory. The French continue their space program and also commit to supporting the EU program but keeping a separate one to the EU as to avoid dependency on EU science. The French space program sends another satellite into space. Development of the computer advances at a great pace thanks to the newly developed microchip. The second French nulcear powerpplant is built outside of Lyon and third outside of marseilles. Plans to build Particle Accelerator are made within the scietific community and they begin approaching the the private sector and the government for contributions. Efforts to develop fusion tech for nuclear energy begin.Construction of the first French bullet train is completed connecting Paris to Marseilles in the south. Expansion of the line continues to other cities. Development of the F60 begins (famas). The ruins in Kurdistan are seen as a major discovery for man kind as the French scientific community becomes facinated with the different findings, efforts to try to decipher the writings continue despite previous failures. The French government and universities are more then willing to send scientists to investigate the ruins a 230-person expedition is outfitted made up of anthropologists, archaeologists, sociologists, and specialists in diverse fields. Research continues. The government and military take a greater interest in the ruins upon discovering the fact that they were from an ancient race of advanced technology. A few pieces are requested for further research in the security of French secret labs. The advanced tech discovered in the pieces taking home are placed in highly secure facilities and the research is placed under a gag order with only general information reaching the public. With the  development of faster computers and micro chips a wealthy business man from Marseille begins investing the computer more and more. Other fields also continue develop at a rapid pace such as robotics (1960s robotics not modern robotics) medecine, physics and engineering. Aside from the north Marseille and along the Rhone river industrialization starts to pick up. The military also begins implementing the new tech trying to develop an internal netwrok using the tech. Plans are made to turn the French Foreign Legion into a volunteer army ready to serve the Union Francaise, the forces will be made up of volunteers from Union members who wish to serve and any who serve will be granted citizenship after five years of service. Naval expansion continues and production of missile carrier subs begin. Vocal support for the reformists in the Soviet Union is given and the French government condemns the hardliner actions of Moscow. French intellegence increases its actvities throughout Eastern Europe. Troops continue to promote French-style democracy in the southern Lowlands and promote equality between the Flemish and the Wallons who speak French. Efforts to build ties with both communities conitnue and efforts to extend the industrial heartland of Wallonia into the French industrial heartland begin. 
  • North African Departments: Efforts to keep the region in line with French policy grow as government officials slowly restore administrative control over the area. The North African colonial troops are rewarded for the service in the Second World War but efforts to keep them in areas away from their hometowns begin. Reconstruction of major northern cities begins, and efforts to begin exploring possible oil wells in Libya begin. Troops are relocated to the Egyptian border to keep contraband out and Egyptian funds out. Tunisia is opened up to further settlement by Europeans as the French see the region as another key area to French economic and geopolitical prosperity. All of North Africa is designated as land for settlement by the French authorities as they decide that North and Saharan Africa will be retained for economic and strategic purposes. Efforts at assimilation increase as the Pied-Noir now have a much stronger position in Algeria and the province is granted seats within the government. All who adopt French citizenship will be granted the right to vote though those who refuse will be granted the choice of either moving into the neighboring French colonies or to another region. Troops remain on high alert. Plans to test out France's first nuclear bomb within two years in South Algeria are set up. Those who have embraced French culture and accepted French citizenship are informally called Harkis by both the Pied-Noir and by native Algerians who have not embraced France. The Harki are granted the right the same rights as the Pied-Noir and Jews and they are seen more and more as a separate ethno-cultural group from the non-French Muslims in Algeria. The White population continues to grow in Algeria despite some protests from the mainland over the treatment of locals and the continued bloodshed, the population currently standing at three million. The government opens its border with Egypt to welcome any Copts who wish to escape Sunni oppression. The White Heartland of North Africa notably Oran, Algiers, Tunis, Bone and other major cities in the North starts growing in importance as local industry grows. 
    • French Central and West Africa: Troops are relocated to the region as violence throughout Central and South Africa grows, and efforts to improve infrastructure in the region begins to improve the general well being of the population and economic potential of the region. Support for the NKA grows as French officials believe supporting this group will help secure French interests in the region. Development of the region's resources begin, and development of infrastructure also begins. The French offer to help the NKA with arms and paramilitary should they request the aid. To combat the Communist threat in the Congo and unite the region. (Mod response, please.) The government begins increasing the power colonial subjects educated in France granting them more places in the administration. More arms are sent to the NKA to combat Communists and training of NKA officials and troops in insurgency and counterinsurgency tactics are offered due to France's recent development of suppression tactics. It is decided that the south of French Equatorial Africa will prepped for indendence as the State of the Congo (including Gabon) and the Central African State. As French Client States, while the North OTL Chad has been designated for further development. In French West Africa the Interior regions (Niger and Mali) are designated for further development and potential settlement due to the low populations in those areas and large potential for economic exploitation should settlement grow in the region, while the rest of the region is designated to be prepped for a transition from dependencies to client states, within the Union Francaise.
      • French Indochina: With the suppression of most of the Cambodian and Laotian rebels the colonial authorities offer the more moderate members of the independence movement a chance to come to the table to discuss the establishment of the state of Cambodia and Laos as autonomous members of the Union Francaise, and the French will withdraw the majority of their forces from the region with the exception of a small force. Negotiations continue as the details are hammered out. French forces are withdrawn from parts of Cambodia and Laos as a sign of good faith.
      • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
      • French Middle East: French troops in the region continue to watch vigilantly over the free state, and plans for economic integration with Israel begin as talks with Tel Aviv continue over the formation of a possible Federation of the Levant under French protection. The French finally agree to begin the federalization of the Levant and Israel. The French offer citizenship to any member of the Alawite, and Christian communities who desire it and those who served in the French colonial forces are granted automatic citizenship. Bases in the Levant will remain there to protect the region and keep the piece.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to bear the burdens of a recession but sees some beginnings of improvement, based on the Federations streamlined state capitalistic system and heavy anti-corruption legislation, as well as solid government regulation on the amount of profits CEO's and higher level businessmen can personally take home. Some of the richer people in society object and protest this heavily. The newly elected Alejandro Gonzales being the youngest president in the Federation's history at 36, puts up and extremely poweful campaign railing against their protesting saying that making million and millions, and not re-investing it into the economy, or diverting more of the profits to getting the poorer people in the Federation out of poverty and more into the middle class. This sees some heavy issues from the upper class and many of the elitist older families in Argentina and Brazil who in legacy fueled much of either countries industrialization. President Gonzales just following proposing legislation to cut back on the elitist families and making it illegal to hold onto funds without some form of re-investment (banks, business, etc.) over a few million unless a plan is made for greater investment is made in the future. Sensing a threat three of the most prominent Brazilian and Argentina families attempted a secret assassination on President Gonzales and bringing out a coup de tat of the government. Being a former soldier, President Gonzales disposed of the intruders managing to get the information out of one survivor. The next day all three of these families are arrested with no bail, and the story of the intrusion is told in a speech which sparks massive outrage against many of the rich families in the Federation, with overwhelming support for the legislation through the population (polls estimate nearly 85% approval) it passes unanimously. The Federation industries continue to advance as they are continually upgraded and modernized among other things. A High tech computers industry begins to develop in the Federation with the advances in microprocessors allowing for the first personal computers released by Internal Dynamics one of the most prominent computer industries in the country. The research into the computers brought back from the ruins continues with the AI inside being able to contact and speak in Spanish and Portuguese now due to the input of the majority of each language's dictionaries into the machine and the AI's ability to listen to the way the language is spoken and learn quickly. While dubious, the AI recognizes modern humanity as children of its creators and agrees to share secrets of the technology but links up with technological take homes from other countries with clear intent to announce something to every nation holding ruins. Federation scientists announce this potential issue to many other countries unsure if the "Artificial Intelligence" is speaking the truth or not, and prepares for some issues possibly devolving from this. The Ability of this intelligence to interface with other computers in other countries is doubted by many Federation scientists. The Federation begins a major point of heavy re-deployment of many of its fleets withdrawing the final ships from Indonesia except for a small battlegroup of a cruiser, three destroyers, one frigate, and two attack submarines. The Federation brings many of its older non-nuclear fleet carriers home for refit with modern technology. The Federation deploys Carrier Group Hades (Supercarrier Hades, Battleships Fortaleza, and Uniaō, five attack submarines, five cruisers, 15 destroyers, ten frigates) to Europe out of the Turkish naval base in Adana while many home deployments for the rest are scheduled. The Federation sees its plan to head to the moon on track as it begins to prep many of its astronauts for the mission. With the advent of Personal computers, the military sees a reason to invest more heavily into information and technological infrastructure, with the development of a primitive internet coming into play now.
    • Feud, given the technology given to us we discussed in chat, I'm not sure if we would have sufficient technology to reach the Singularity which this AI seems to be. -Nate
  • Italy: Having little recourse, Italy requests to send archaeologists into ruins in Indonesia to study them. We also ask that said archaeologists will be allowed a military escort composed of Italian troops, in case something bad happens. We congratulate Poland on its successful reform, and offer it a free trade agreement. Italy sends a request to France for the ability to produce and sell French computers. We continue organizing the TT, with major success. Predictions have placed the end date of training in May. We continue with all of our current projects, with some success at alleviating some of the ill effects of the recession.
    • French Dip: The French agree.
  • Yemen: We continue expanding our army and request to buy 200 MBTs from the Federation. Meanwhile, we continue building a strong education system centered around the economy. We invite IBM to establish a PC manufacturing plant in Yemen where they can get cheap wages and little safety laws.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land, establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. "Moeldokos March to the Sea" was termed one of the greatest miltary operation launched by the Nationalist, and brought about the capture of 71,000 US soldiers and 90,000 Democrat soldiers. The success of Operation Downfall, which successfully flushed out the Democratic forces from Kalimantan and Sulawesi brought forth an increased hope that the conflict would be won. The Indonesian High Command now turned its attention towards West Papua, and launched a major assault upon Democratic bases in the region, in hopes of restricting the Democrats solely to Sumatra. The incursion involved 200,000 troops and the Indonesian Armoured Corps, as well as a section of the Indonesian Navy which had been deployed to prevent Democratic troops from withdrawing. Meanwhile, the Indonesian Air Force began monitoring Sumatran positions through surveillance flights, and initiated strategic bombing of ration storage centres, as well as taking out oil refineries. The military, however, in particular, conducted high bombing of Southern Sumatra, purposely attacking heavily-populated regions to draw Sumatran attention towards the South. The tactic was merely a rouse, as the military launched Operation Typhoon, an amphibious landing upon the strategic Andaman and Nicobar Islands involving the majority of the Indonesian Navy, and Air Force and a total of 280,000 troops. 

1968.5

In a stunning display to many scientists of the US, France, USSR, and Federation, the Artificial intelligence explains that it is the creation of a previous human civilization, buried by a long past war. The current resurgence of humanity excites it, and gives it new life. It offers to reveal various technologies of a peaceful nature to the new human civilizations over time. Scientists from all countries, however, do notice something "off" about the Intelligence even as they begin to process the raw data it has begun to show them.

The industries of Kurdistan and Ethiopia have brought them almost beyond the status of developing nations, establishing comfortable lives for all their citizens

Robotics are increasingly common in the developed world, creating semi-automated industries across the Americas and Europe. With the rise of PCs, a primitive internet begins to emerge as PC's are linked together to communicate easier.

The artifacts discovered by Japan are found to bear the same technology as the others so far. At the moment, the archaeologists request Parliament to keep this knowledge top secret.

Although the violence in the Levant appears to level off, a secret organization known as the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) begins to coordinate efforts for the purpose of creating an independent Arab state. This is seen as a terrorist group by local authorities. At the same time, some Israeli settlers begin showing violence against local Alawites as "vengence" for previous attacks.

With the loss of Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union returns to their previous commitment for reformation by delegating power from the Politburo to lower authorites.

Led Zepilin visits the UK, touring near Surry.

A Civil Rights movement begins in Ireland

  • Federation of the Levant: A new law, the Representation Act, is passed. A new parliament will be formed, and, in accordance with the Representation Act, 25% of the parliament must be Israeli/Jewish, 25% must be Arab, 25% must be Christian, and 25% must be Alawite. This is done to ensure no group achieves dominance over any of the others. Every state of the Levant will appoint a representative who will represent that state in the parliament. Every state will also have its own semi-parliament with a similar setup as the Federal one. These laws are celebrated amongst the people and are supported. In order to create this new parliament, new elections are held and Haris Ben Haim wins again. Israeli and Arab troublemakers are arrested and are also all freed within two days. The government announces that any further acts of revenge or general violence will be punished with longer imprisonment.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continue expanding their infrastructure and continues building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio agrees to the archaeologists request of keeping it top secret at the moment.
  • Bulgaria: The deteriorating situation of the people, long neglected by the government, boils over in a huge revolt. Democratization comes in a bloody and violent revolution. The government is toppled, and chaos reigns. A democratic government is installed, but in the confusion, areas remain in anarky.
    • French Dip: The French offer recognition to the new government and offer to help establish rule of law in the region should the new regime require aid, we also offer them a place in the EU.
    • British Diplomacy: We recognise the new Bulgarian government and offer it economic aid, a trade agreement and back up France's offer of membership in the EU.
    • Italian Dip: We recognize the new government of Bulgaria, and offer to provide aid to the country's government in maintaining control over areas in turmoil.
    • Bulgarian Dip: We thank all who recognize us, and accept the proposal to join the EU.
  • France:
  • The United Kingdom: Using the newly discovered technology we begin making our own PC's and begin selling them. We also invest in French & American computers and ask to buy some from these nations. British scientists continue to examine the strange AI that was discovered. Technological innovation becomes very popular in the UK during this post-war era. Major investments are made in the Chinese government, especially in the British territory of Hong Kong. We ask Albania to join the EU (MOD NEEDED). We also offer to send support to the Federation of the Levant and request that the queen be allowed to visit.
  • Western African Federation: WAF's economy and military continues to expand. We're gladly that Federation withdrew their troops and monetary investments into our area so we can gain more of it. Also the troops gain more recruitment and many of them joining the military.
  • Romania: We propose a trade deal to the Soviet Union, in order to sooth up relations a bit. We also want to establish trade agreements with the Federation, Yemen, USA, Saudi Arabia, Kurdistan, Israel and Hungary. We announce that we start developing the plane model Tunet X-1, which is gonna be able to travel with the speed of sound, and we ask for international funding in order to create this marvel, for this, we will sell them for a lower price to the countries that contributed. We propose the re-establishment of the United Nations. Due to some fears, the Romanian government still leaves the mobilized troops on the borders. We support population growth. We recognize the new Polish government.
  • Italy: Italy thanks France for allowing it access to computer technology. This technology is produced in massive amounts, paving the way for a technological revolution. Military officials begin using computers to simulate battles and operations, and researchers begin developing computer technology for use on submarines and rockets. The personal computer, though taking somewhat longer to develop, is expected to be available, if not common, by 1973. The TT corps completes training and organization into an effective shock force, though this leaves the regular army in largely support roles. To provide greater amounts of power to the army, research begins into a heavy infantry fighting vehicle, capable of holding 20 soldiers, mounting a 55 millimeter cannon, and carrying 100 rounds of ammo for said cannon. All of our current projects continue, with projections estimating a fully modern nuclear arsenal being completed by 1975, the completion of another heavy industrial complex in Florence, and more progress on alleviating the recession. Italy requests the ability to send archaeologists to Japanese ruins.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio kindly declines Italy's offer.
  • United States: American industry continues to improve in spite of the recent recession, due to the continued exportation of resources and growing labor force, and thereby become a leader of the Northern Industrial Group. The Baby Boomer generation continues to emphasize the youth-based culture, stressing the creed "love not war" and otherwise bringing a reformist conscience to America. This highly-involved youth, not wanting another conflict in Europe, begin protesting the government to seek reconcilliation with the USSR. The Civil Rights Movement continues to pick up steam as Martin Luther King leads the cause of African Americans. Science Fiction and Superhero television grow in national popularity, which all espouse good philosophical values under the Censorship Bureau. NASA continues to make breakthroughs in space exploration, sending new lunar landing modules this year. Military and naval bases continue to be manned around the world, particularly in East Asia and Central Europe. The blockade of the Aegean Sea continues. The internet continues to grow along with the digital industry. Many Americans in the west suspect that this advanced civilization described by the AI is evidence that humanity was seeded by a divine race of extraterratrial origin. These UFO enthusiasts are united together under the cult known as the Nation of Islam, with a smaller community under the more recent cult of Scientology. The American government generally disregards this as some sort of hoax or Federation propaganda, but Dr. Catherine Langford leads a team of scientists and historians to petition communicating with the AI and learning more about its origin - and by extension, Earth's.
  • Syria: We continue rebuilding Syria from our war of independence working on freeways and cites. We begin to open up more jobs to improve our country. We allow the US to set up nukes in Syria in case we are under attack. We begin to work on a standing army starting off with 20,000 troops. We join the UMS. Seeing an Intifada in Levant some Syrian generals allow Levant rebels to set up bases in Syria and some going as far as giving them training in the camps and have imams come to camp in hope of creating religious groups, with one group calling itself jaysh alrbb (army of god), and give the P.L.O their camp. With a recent pool 90 percent of Syrian support the P.L.O and Jaysh alrbb. We kindly ask the US, Federation and USSR if we can buy their weaponry.
  • Republic of the Philippines: President Elizabeth Bayabos still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. Though our export-oriented growth strategy makes us prone to changes in external demand, our strong agricultural base and relatively large energy industry causes our economy to still grow rapidly despite recession and slowdown in our largest consumer market, the Federation and Japan. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. We begin manufacturing weapons. She encourages the rapid growth of business conglomerates. The government also begins to improve overall infrastructure, specially in the growing urban areas. Our navy is improved and trade routes are secured. We secretly begin to plan a re-invasion of Sabah and Sarawak to get rid of the imperialist British influence on maritime Southeast Asia. We think that this might happen within the next five years or so once our military strength and population increases. Though we are an ally of the Federation, we officially announce that we will not join the Southern Defence Pact and we begin to show hostility to the new nationalist government in Indonesia. We secretly support Indonesian separatist movements and regional leaders to keep Indonesia (a potential threat to our dream of dominating Southeast Asia and beyond) fragmented and the central government's control to lessen. We begin to try to improve relations with Europe (except Britain) and America, offering to send a total of 300,000 skilled labor and more access to our domestic market.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Recession finally ends within the Federation as its increased attempts to fix its economic problems leads to a new stabilized oil price, a much more intensive resource extraction market, as well as more emerging high tech industries. With the advent of more advanced computer systems and miniaturizing electronics, the inclusion of computers into military hardware begins with notable advances allowing for development of new vehicles of all sorts to come about in tanks, APC, planes, helicopters, ships, almost everything the Federation maintains. The various legislations put ahead in order to prevent money hoarding and non investment into the economy, while unpopular with the rich and leading to multiple arrests, President Gonzales with heavy support from the military, particularly his military connections prevents and further issues against him. The attempts to hide money overseas are also snuffed out as the Federation executive and judicial branches rail against the corruption and issues of the Federal Congress outing money hoarders, and non-investors. The high tech computer industries continue to advance further as they push the envelope learning new coding languages and designs from the AI as it reveals new technology to Federation scientists who in turn pass it along to Computer companies bringing high advancement in technology in an amazingly short period of time. Further attempts to coax information out of the AI in terms of humanities past remain fruitless and its assumed US, French, and USSR scientists dealing with this AI suffer the same pitfalls. Further investment into the military internet sysrem continues with progress being made as the Military shows greater communication and asessment abilities. This ironically begins bringing out the Civilian internet which beging to grow at a rapid rate. Information gleaned from the AI itself have shown sophisticated improvement in the internet as not having to do much of the in-between research allows for incredible advancement. The nation's fleet continues modernization and also reveals five new Ballistic missile submarines, Thor, Ares, Shiva, Caeser, and the Ascuncion. New battleships also begin to be built as President Gonzales, convinced the discovery of ruins and the fact such an advanced civilization was buried, manages to sell putting nearly 4% of its GDP into its armed forces while also increasing GDP expenditures into the space program to nearly 1%. With a GDP of nearly 4.23 trillion the Federation recognizes as the second largest economy in the world just behind the US (who should be in the realm of 4.4-4.6 trillion I think?) The Federation begins setting up the Saõ Paulo stock market to cater to many SDP nations
  • Democratic Republic of Yugoslavia: We officly transfer to a democratic regim. We make an application to join the EU. If the EU rejects me then we'll apply to join the SDP. We begin to recover from the chaos in Yugoslavia over the last few years. We desperately try to keep Yugoslavia together. We build our economy and infrastructure. We begin trying to meet to the people's demands, building thousands of houses and other stuff that people wants. The first democratic elections will take place on the 1st January 1969. We would also like the EU to intervene in Bulgaria and Greece, saying that it should be in democratic control.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land, establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. "Moeldokos March to the Sea" was termed one of the greatest miltary operation launched by the Nationalist, and brought about the capture of 71,000 US soldiers and 90,000 Democrat soldiers. The success of Operation Downfall, which successfully flushed out the Democratic forces from Kalimantan and Sulawesi brought forth an increased hope that the conflict would be won. The Indonesian High Command now turned its attention towards West Papua, and launched a major assault upon Democratic bases in the region, in hopes of restricting the Democrats solely to Sumatra. The incursion involved 200,000 troops and the Indonesian Armoured Corps, as well as a section of the Indonesian Navy which had been deployed to prevent Democratic troops from withdrawing. Meanwhile, the Indonesian Air Force began monitoring Sumatran positions through surveillance flights, and initiated strategic bombing of ration storage centres, as well as taking out oil refineries. The military, however, in particular, conducted high bombing of Southern Sumatra, purposely attacking heavily-populated regions to draw Sumatran attention towards the South. The tactic was merely a rouse, as the military launched Operation Typhoon, an amphibious landing upon the strategic Andaman and Nicobar Islands involving the majority of the Indonesian Navy, and Air Force and a total of 280,000 troops. Operation Typhoon turned to be a total success, and further pressure was mounted upon the Sumatran Democrats to settle for unification.

SALF rebels conduct a wave of suicide bombings in Cape Town and Pretoria, with a failed attempt at Johannesburg. The South African government responds with reprisals against potential rebels using new equipment purchased from Federation arms industries.

The Ethiopian government begins a rapid program to arm and modernize its military as it show noticeable aggravated behavior to neighboring states in the region.

Research by US, Federation, and French scientists as well as controlled releases of the technology shows notable jumps in computer technology with high tech computer industries in France as well as IBM and ID in the US and Federation respectively showing intense technological improvement.

Indonesian forces make notable gains isolating Sumatra further as well as keeping nearly 60,000 Sumatran forces in West Papua essentially stranded. The Current Sumatran president denies unification against the advice of many of his cabinet.

Medium sized ruins are discovered deep into the French Sahara, in the US Nevada Desert, in Soviet Siberia, and deep in the Brazilian Amazons.

Global population reaches 3.6 billion.

NASA launches the Apollo mission to the moon landing successfully. The FASA begins its own launch just a few weeks later.

  • The United Kingdom: We ask all members of the EU to go to the meeting and vote on whether or not Yugoslavia should have a place in the EU. 1960's EU Emergency Meeting (Dawn of War Map Game) Military presence increases in Sabah in order to keep peae there. We send our congratulations to the USA and ask for permission to examine their ruins so that we can examine them and compare the data to that of the Kurdistani, Theiopiant, and Levantan ruins. We also ask the French if we can explore their ruins. The British government, seeing that the project to turn London into an energy efficient city was a success, make a mandate and state that by 1975 all of the United Kingdom will use green, environmentally-safe energy. We withdraw most of our troops from Romania now that the threat of Yugoslavia is finished but we do still keep some there to help defend the border with the USSR. British scientists begin searching for an altenative fuel source. We purchase PC's from France and the USA and develop our own but will only sell them exclusively to EU members for the time being. We also purchase cellular phones from the United States and work on replicating the amazing technology.
  • Western African Federation: WAF's economy and military grows up as much as possible if needed. More troops recruited as we begin to build more bunkers and fortresses. The industry still working hard to produce oils. The windmills and farms to be planned for construction. We joined NATO last year for WAF to make a great organization with them.
  • United States: American industry continues to improve in spite of the recent recession, due to the continued exportation of resources and growing labor force, and thereby become a leader of the Northern Industrial Group. The Baby Boomer generation continues to emphasize the youth-based culture, stressing the creed "love not war" and otherwise bringing a reformist conscience to America. This highly-involved youth, not wanting another conflict in Europe, begin protesting the government to seek reconcilliation with the USSR. The Civil Rights Movement continues to pick up steam as Martin Luther King leads the cause of African Americans. Science Fiction and Superhero television grow in national popularity, which all espouse good philosophical values under the Censorship Bureau. NASA continues to make breakthroughs in space exploration, sending new lunar landing modules this year. Military and naval bases continue to be manned around the world, particularly in East Asia and Central Europe. The blockade of the Aegean Sea continues. The internet continues to grow along with the digital industry. The internet continues to grow as more poeple invest in websites and internet searching. Much overseas trade increases with west Africa to fill the vacuum left by the Federation. A few weeks after its discovery, the air force closes in secure the ruins as a restricted area, only allowing civilians from the National Geographic Society who are given proper clearence. Before they arrive, however, a number of UFO cultists from the Nation of Islam vandalize some of the artifacts, stealing bits and pieces of the technology. AT&T comes out with a portable telephone this year, marketed as a cell phone. Neil Armstrong leads the Apollo 11 team to step foot on the Moon, exclaiming "that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind". Buzz Aldrin's words are "Beautiful view, isn't it magnificent?" Using the advancements in computer technology, NASA already begins constructing a more advanced shuttle design for future missions. 
  • Italy: The government continues developing computer technology, though it is becoming increasingly difficult to stop military officials from slacking off in the name of "simulating tactical maneuvers." The developers of the personal computer are requested to add this as a feature, called Tactical Maneuvers. The developers agree to add it as a test feature, and to leave it accessible once the retail version is released, in hopes of boosting sales. All current projects continue, with further bunkers undergoing construction in interior areas of Sicily and Sardinia. We begin investing in alternative energy.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. We build up roads and civilian infrastructure in Spain and Spanish North Africa. We will begin to research nuclear weapons and will plan to build one by 1967. We will begin building up infrastructure in “Las colonias españolas”. We will check our colonies for any signs of the ruins in our colonies and stress that all peoples should have access which might jump humanity a thousand years. We research technology in order to maintain a continued advancement in all of our fields. We research technology in order to maintain a continued advancement in all of our fields. We will begin the mass production of thermobaric weapons(invented in World War 2) and researching and creating aircraft similar to the Lockheed AC-140. In fear of nuclear fallout, we begin building large scale bunkers to protect or citizens around 20 begin construction. We congratulate America on the moon landing saying it is a victory for humanity.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies and we continue to encourage Spaniards to come but not as rigorously to former Moroccan Territories. Mauritania is still under our control so we create settlements in Ndiago, El Tidra, Bou Lanouar, Nouamghar, Tioulit, and Jredia of 170,000. We begin moving inland as we are running out of land on the coast to make settlements of Inal, Bennichchab, Ninmjat, Merderdra, Tmeimichat, Akjoujt and the rest of the provinces of Dakhlet Nouadhibou, Inchiri and Trarza of 105,000.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also recruit an army of 70,000 people. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We begin pulling in people to the island of Bioko bringing 180,000 Spaniards. We begin to seize land on the coast for inhabitation by Spaniards.
  • Yemen: We start the training of our first special forces and ask to buy military transport aircraft from any nation. We send intelligence agents into Kurdistan to find out about where the notes on Kurdistan ruins excavations are kept and how well they defended.
  • Kurdistan has a massive economic boost resulting from the new technology and economic benefits spinning from the ruins. Manufacturing industries in numerous high-tech fields enjoy huge boosts, triggering an economic boom that raises living standards greatly. Tax revenues rise and are reinvested into improving education and subsidizing industry. Kurdish troops guarding the ruins catch several Yemeni spies early in the year. In response, Kurdistan has the spies publicly executed and seizes all Yemeni diplomatic personnel in Kurdistan. It demands Yemen cease violating Kurdish sovereignty or face military reprisals. (That is cheating. You can't just declare all my spies caught. Person)
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continue throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continue expanding their infrastructure and continue building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Further research on the artifacts continue in secret. Several new highways begin construction.
  • Republic of the Philippines: President Elizabeth Bayabos still continues the modernisation effort and the numerous construction projects across the country. Though our export-oriented growth strategy makes us prone to changes in external demand, our strong agricultural base and relatively large energy industry causes our economy to still grow rapidly despite recession and slowdown in our largest consumer market, the Federation and Japan. There is heavy emphasis on heavy industry, such as the steel, shipbuilding, automobile-manufacturing, and chemical industries. We begin manufacturing weapons. She encourages the rapid growth of business conglomerates. The government also begins to improve overall infrastructure, specially in the growing urban areas. Our navy is improved and trade routes are secured. We secretly begin to plan a re-invasion of Sabah and Sarawak to get rid of the imperialist British influence on maritime Southeast Asia. We think that this might happen within the next five years or so once our military strength and population increases. Though we are an ally of the Federation, we officially announce that we will not join the Southern Defence Pact and we begin to show hostility to the new nationalist government in Indonesia. We secretly support Indonesian separatist movements (in Aceh, Sulawesi, etc.) and regional leaders to keep Indonesia (a potential threat to our dream of dominating Southeast Asia and beyond) fragmented and the central government's control to lessen.
  • France: With the continued decline of the Communist Bloc the government continues to scale back its aggresive attitude towards the Soviets and troops are pulled out of Romania leaving a force of 50,000. De Gaulle - after more then a decade in power - to everyone's surprise steps down. In his final weeks in office de Gaulle gives a speech thanking the people of France for having granted him the opportunity to serve them and states all that the French State has accomplished in th past decade. De Gaulle's exit from office  creates elections frenzy amongst the parties as everyone moves to fill the void left by de Gaulle. Despite the hopes of the left to gain power after over a decade in obscurity they only manage to form a weak opposition against Right wing Coalition dominated by the Christian democrats, and Gaullist republicans. The new government continues de Gaulles policies and the transformation of the French armed forces continue as the overbloated French army is reduced to 1.2 million strong. More emphasis is placed on a modern and rapid military force over the overwhelming numbers or massive defenses of the previous years. older tanks, apcs, and other armor are taking out of circulation as modern armor is introduced With the AMX 30, and the VAB becoming the standard, along side several new armored car models. The Air force under goes a massive expansion as the government decides that airial supremacy should the focus of the armed forces. The new advances in electronics greatly improves the accuracy of missiles, and targeting systems in jets and plans to improve the Mirage 5 design with these new advances along side developing several tactical fighters such as the AX-10 (based on the SAAB from Sweden) and several jet bombers. Naval expansion also occurs as the craft carriers revamped with new tech and efforts to modernize them begin. More subs, frigates, and missile cruisers are commissioned. The Union Forces are created as a voluntary force (with the foreign legion as its core) Paris recognizes the force as a core component to Union security and with this they offer all those who serve full French citizenship after five years service. The advances in robotics, and engineering amaze French industrial leaders and society as a whole as French industry in the French Metropolis and the in the African Departments see expodential growth. The ruins in the French Sahara are looked upon with massive interest from the French scientific community and the French military and the site is declared a place of national importance and placed under heavy surviallance, with this new important resource in French Africa the government adopts fully the policy of keeping The sub-saharan region, and settling the interior of the continent. The ruins are heavily investigated and any artifacts are sent to Algiers or back to France to be fully studied with the new data granted by the machine. the research helps areas already being developed like medecine (bio-engineering in particular), engineering (particularly aurospace, and robotics), physics and nuclear physics, electronics and strides are made in the development lf lasers, robotics, computation (thanks to the internet which the military uses for a wide variety of communication an ata storage purposes) and bio-engineering. A new policy of allowing christians from Africa, or the middle east to migrate to France should they desire a new life begin as efforts to increase the population of North Africa. Efforts to improve higher education numbers begin as grants are given to those who request it. A new cultural movement known as Europeanism begins in some academic circles as a direct response to the growth of EU and the growth of France's position within the organization. Many French begin looking at a brighter future without violence on the continent and many consider the possiblity of improving relations with a reformed USSR. Many areas of Central and South France grow in importance as industrialization in those areas go. The North African Departments also enjoy a major growth in industry due to greater investment from the Pied-Noir, and due to the fact that the Harkis are becoming further integrated into French society. The population of Pieds-Noirs grows to three million and the Harki (those natives who have embraced French culture) reach 4.5 million  becoming the largest ethnic group in the region. Algiers, Bones, Tunis, Oran, and Tripoli become core cities for Franco-Harki culture and for white settlement. Forces in the Middle East maintain a presence to help out the Levantine forces. 
  • French Central and West Africa: As the Saharan region (Chad, Niger and Mali) and the Ivory Coast are set aside for integration to the metropolis the rest of the region is prepped for independence within the Union Francaise as with the Kongo becoming the first state.
    • French Indochina: French completely pull out of Cambodia and Laos except for the small skeleton force that is meant to help protect the newly stabilized groups.
    • Madagascar and Kenya: The French decide it might be time to start pulling out and establish client states.
    • German Dip: We ask to purchase everything the French know about computer and robotic technology. We also ask for access to the ruins in the Sahara for our scientists.
  • Germany: The German economy booms after a short recession. The German army is modernized and troops continue to train in the latest doctrines. More money is poured into our nuclear energy project and we begin to look into computer and robotic technology.  We start to send funds and weapons across the border into Czechoslovakia to fund democratic and Slovakian rebels there.
  • Nationalist Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. President Sayuti Melik anounced the imposition of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840,000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land, establishing cooperatives for farmers, minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. Having successfully defeated the Democrats at Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, West Papua and the Andaman Islands, the Nationalist Regime announced that it was prepared to begin negotiations for unification, and an end to the conflict. Bombing of Sumatran cities and blockade of major Sumatran ports was put to a halt until a response was given. [Mod Response For Whether Sumatrans Accept Negotiations]. 
  • Federation of the Americas: The Recession finally ends within the Federation as its increased attempts to fix its economic problems leads to a new stabilized oil price, a much more intensive resource extraction market, as well as more emerging high tech industries. With the advent of more advanced computer systems and miniaturizing electronics, the inclusion of computers into military hardware begins with notable advances allowing for development of new vehicles of all sorts to come about in tanks, APC, planes, helicopters, ships, almost everything the Federation maintains. The various legislations put ahead in order to prevent money hoarding and non investment into the economy, while unpopular with the rich and leading to multiple arrests, President Gonzales with heavy support from the military, particularly his military connections prevents any further issues against him. The attempts to hide money overseas are also snuffed out as the Federation executive and judicial branches rail against the corruption and issues of the Federal Congress outing money hoarders, and non-investors. The high tech computer industries continue to advance further as they push the envelope learning new coding languages and designs from the AI as it reveals new technology to Federation scientists who in turn pass it along to Computer companies bringing high advancement in technology in an amazingly short period of time. Further attempts to coax information out of the AI in terms of humanities past remain fruitless and it's assumed US, French and USSR scientists dealing with this AI suffer the same pitfalls. Further investment into the military internet sysrtem continues with progress being made as the Military shows greater communication and assessment abilities. This ironically begins bringing out the Civilian internet which beging to grow at a rapid rate. Information gleaned from the AI itself have shown sophisticated improvement in the internet as not having to do much of the in-between research allows for incredible advancement. The Federation continues meshing its stock market with many of its SDP Allies in an attempt to more centralize and empower various SDP economies with a centralizes stock system. With the discovery of the Ruins deep in the Amazons the Federation begins a heavy buildup of large military base around the base, known as Section 3. Referring to Section three of the government research and development sector. The research begins in earnest as information and know how gleaned from the AI have led to Federation scientists being able to have direct access to various databases within the Ruins.
    • ​Indonesian Diplomacy: The Nationalist Indonesian Regime expresses interest in purchasing the Tar-15 from the Federation.
  • Democratic Republic of Yugoslavia: Continues to recover from the crisis in 1968. We thank nations that have voted for us to be in the EU, saying that we will be loyal and a great member. We build our economy, infrastructure and technology. We would like to invade Greece for peacekeeping operations. We build many houses in our major cities. We desperately try to keep Yugoslavia together. We build some skyscrapers in our major cities. Many roads and motorways are built throughout the country. We are worried about aliens. We contribute to the European space agency.
  • Republic of Bulgaria: We disapprove of the Yugoslavian's plan to invade Greece. We militarize in preparation of the apocalypse, as the fear of the AI and the fear of aliens causes hysteria. We recommend other EU members do the same.
    • Just to clarify: you are recommending the EU to panic? -Nate
    • No, to prepare for what might come. ~Tao64

1969.5

The Federation just months after the United States lands a man on the moon becoming the second nation in the world to do so.

Technological advances industrially begin to disseminate a bit more from Kurdistan and Ethiopia. Kurdistan in particular becomes a notable oil rival to the Federation with the Federations sheer volume in natural gas and oil production being its saving grace.

Ethiopian forces begin to rev up its military industries as it begins to look north to Sudan.

The Sumatan president is killed as high ranking government officials and generals attempt to make peace with the Indonesian Federation agreeing to unify to prevent further attacks on Sumatra.

Computer technology in the US makes gains as personal computers and the internet begin to catch on quickly, with many small business firms and tech companies beginning to build into and invest into information and computer infrastructure.

The SALF - in an amazing show of reach - manages to conduct a bombing in the Federation city of Rio de Janeiro shocking the nation's citizens and forcing them to recognize how bad the apartheid government is in South Africa.

  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continue throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continue expanding their infrastructure and continue building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Further research on the artefacts continue in secret. Several new highways continue construction. Meanwhile, alternate energy sources are invested in. A new law is passed that places a ban on anything nuclear, such as nuclear energy. However, the US defensive nuclear bases that are placed in Japan are allowed to stay and are the only thing not effected by the law.
  • Saudi Arabia: King Faisal is assassinated by a lower member of the royal family, causing chaos. It is rumored that disagreements regarding the SDP have caused the royal family to have tension. There are several different candidates for king, including three of Faisal's brothers, Khalid, Muhammad, and Saad, and Faisal's son, Abdullah. People in Saudi Arabia have some minor riots asking for change, especially regarding economic and foreign policy. Fearing a possible insurgency, the popular Muhammad is chosen as king, and he is considered more liked. The new king immediately makes a major change. He has been advocating stronger anti-Communism and more economic independence and prosperity, and believes that this is best accomplished through leaving the SDP, selling oil to ALL non-Communist nations at equal price, ridding Federation's influence, and having stricter anti-Communist foreign policy. We have made a proposal in the SDP.
    • The US extends an economic alliance and political protection to all former SDP members. President Bonesteel hopes to visit Saudi Arabia in the near future to further relations.
    • Saudi Arabia tells the US that when the SDP dissolves or we leave, we would like to improve relations and trade, but likely will not like an alliance with the US, though we will aid in fighting Communism.
    • British Diplomacy: We wish to improve relations with Saudi Arabia by investing in major trade with them now that they have agreed to exit the SDP.
  • Republic of the Philippines: The Philippines continues to develop a centralised planned economy that promoted economic growth through labor and capital-intensive manufactured exports with heavy emphasis on its heavy industry such as its steel, shipbuilding, automobile, semiconductor, and petrochemical industries. The rapid growth of the industrial sector draws millions of labourers, previously living in rural areas, into the urban areas. The government introduces modern technologies into outmoded or newly built facilities at a rapid pace. Some facilities have automation systems to boost productivity with slowing, though still rapid, population growth. The rapid growth of its business conglomerates continues. Inflation is controlled by a conservative monetary policy and tight fiscal measures. Government intervention in the economy is greatly reduced and socio-economic policies enter a period of liberalisation. The government’s investment in public projects focusing on sanitation, education and infrastructure increases. The government decreases the military expenditure to 1% of its gross domestic product, sacrificing billions of dollars for the Philippine’s economic progress. Though the Philippines is an ally of the Federation, the government officially announce that they will not join the Southern Defence Pact due to ideological differences. The Philippines heavily opposes Indonesian unification and backs up the democratic government.
    • The US wishes to improve relations with the Philippines and reconcile the two nations, revitalising the East Asian Treaty Organisation with the Philippine government having predominance.
    • The Philippines: Agrees to improve relations but they must only interfere in internal matters when they are asked to do so. Also, we agree to the revitalisation of the East Asian Treaty Organisation.
    • The Republic of Indonesia condemns the decision by Philippines to oppose Indonesian unification, and subsequently expels all Philippine ambassadors and diplomats inside Indonesian territory.
  • Yemen: We also leave the SDP as the government no longer feels they represent our best interests. We will sell oil to all non- Communist nations. President Bonesteel is invited to visit Yemen while he travels around Saudi Arabia. We start constructing a new shipyard for merchant vessels at Aden. We start building a railway line from Aden to Sana'a.
    • The US offers to extend economic relations in Yemen, sending certain electronic businesses oversees to sell computers and cell phones in southern Arabia.
    • British Diplomacy: We wish Yemen to join the commonwealth and wish to open up trade there.
  • Western African Federation: We continue to improve our nation's economy and military. Lagos' populations slowly grows while some of the troops have been recruited. We hope to reach more than 500,000 troops if that's the case of our target. Our ships begin to build as much as possible they have the structures. After we joined NATO, we improved relations with other countries. The ports begin to build.
  • Federation of the Levant: The Levant finally sees peace again, as the Representation Act has calmed down the troublemakers.
  • Democratic Republic of Yugoslavia: Continues to recover from the crisis in 1968. We build our economy, infrastructure and technology. We would like to invade Greece for peacekeeping operations. Expansion continues to our cities, building loads of houses. We desperately try to keep Yugoslavia together. We build some skyscrapers in our major cities. Many roads and motorways are built throughout the country. We are worried about aliens. We contribute to the European space agency. We would like to limit British and Italian influence over the EU.
    • ​The US agrees to help Yugoslavia in its peacekeeping mission and sends 30,000 troops to help it, along with the navy currently in the Aegean Sea.
    • Italian Dip: May I ask what influence we currently have over the EU and why you would want to limit it? (That is actually a legitimate question, not just sarcasm.) As for the "peacekeeping", we'll send 100,000 TT's with medium aircraft and armor support for an amphibious landing.
  • Republic of Indonesia: Expansion of the Indonesian military and the state infrastructure continued. Armaments were purchased from the Federation of Americas, and the military directly cooperated with the Federation to train the Indonesian forces. Meanwhile, Indonesia developed a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution, and nationalized numerous important industries including the iron and steel, heavy machinery, and chemical industries. Heavy emphasis was also placed upon the agriculture and energy industries. August 17, 1969 was officially declared Indonesian Unification Day, and jubilant crowds celebrated throughout the nation, marking the end of the near decade old conflict. An interim government was established comprising of major Nationalist and Democratic leaders whilst preperations were made for the general elections, with Sayuti Melik being the President. With the end of the civil war, the new regime begins to seek out international recognition, and invites the President Gonzales to Indonesia. 
    • French Dip: The French offer to oversee the elections and guarantee that they are free and fair.
    • Indonesian Diplomacy: The offer by the French government is accepted, and the elections shall be jointly conducted under Indonesian and French supervision. 
  • France: With the continued decline of the Communist Bloc the government continues to scale back its aggresive attitude towards the Soviets and troops are pulled out of Romania leaving a force of 50,000.

A new law is passed establishing that all male French citizens will be given basic military training upon turning 18 though it will be restricted to a weekend twice a year and should a national emergency ever occur a national draft would be implemented though obligatory military service is abolished in favor of voluntary. Efforts to push forward reforms in the EU also begin and it is requested that the members of the European union vote on the matter. EU reform vote
    • French Central and West Africa: As the Saharan region (Chad, Niger and Mali) and the Ivory Coast are set aside for integration to the metropolis the rest of the region is prepped for independence within the Union Francaise as with the Kongo becoming the first state.
      • French Indochina: French completely pull out of Cambodia and Laos except for the small skeleton force that is meant to help protect the newly stabilized groups.
      • Madagascar and Kenya: The French decide it might be time to start pulling out and establish client states.
      • French Dip: They agree to grant the Germans limited access to the ruins, and they agree to share some of the tech on the basis of pooling German and French resources together to develop stronger industrial and technological developments.
      • The United Kingdom: The UK's green project is a major success so far with many of the ciites surrounding London turning to environmentaly safe energy. Cell phones and computers become extremely popular in the UK and we ask the USA to begin sending shipments of the devices to Hong Kong so we can further industrialise the area as well as British Borneo and Sabah. Meanwhile, we plan to give the British version of the new technology to the people of Sudanese-Uganda. The buildup of peacekeepers in Sabah continues and many British citizens begin moving to the area.
  • USSR: Talks of reforming the Union continue, with the possibility of giving more autonomy to the republics. A hardline Communist sect of the government believes that these reforms are foolish and that most of the power should still remain with the central government. The hardline sect begins a coup to try to overthrow the government and take power away from <insert Soviet ruler's name here>. Soon, a good portion of the Union is embroiled in a civil war. Fighting persists for several months, but by the end of the year, it looks like the hardliners are losing the war.
    • French Dip: The French government offers support for the reformists and publicly denounces the hardliners saying that should a more lenient government come to power in Moscow the French and potentially the EU as a whole would be willing to begin ending the ideological struggle that has dominanted Eurasia for the past few decades.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Recession finally ends within the Federation as its increased attempts to fix its economic problems leads to a new stabilized oil price, a much more intensive resource extraction market, as well as more emerging high tech industries. With the advent of more advanced computer systems and miniaturizing electronics, the inclusion of computers into military hardware begins with notable advances allowing for development of new vehicles of all sorts to come about in tanks, APC, planes, helicopters, ships, almost everything the Federation maintains. The various legislations put ahead in order to prevent money hoarding and non investment into the economy, while unpopular with the rich and leading to multiple arrests, President Gonzales with heavy support from the military, particularly his military connections prevents any further issues against him. The attempts to hide money overseas are also snuffed out as the Federation executive and judicial branches rail against the corruption and issues of the Federal Congress outing money hoarders, and non-investors. The high tech computer industries continue to advance further as they push the envelope learning new coding languages and designs from the AI as it reveals new technology to Federation scientists who in turn pass it along to Computer companies bringing high advancement in technology in an amazingly short period of time. Further attempts to coax information out of the AI in terms of humanities past remain fruitless and it's assumed US, French and USSR scientists dealing with this AI suffer the same pitfalls. Further investment into the military internet sysrtem continues with progress being made as the Military shows greater communication and assessment abilities. This ironically begins bringing out the Civilian internet which beging to grow at a rapid rate. Information gleaned from the AI itself have shown sophisticated improvement in the internet as not having to do much of the in-between research allows for incredible advancement. President Gonzales agrees to the trip to Indonesia. Federation citizens seeing bombing in Rio as an affront by Nelson Mandela and his forces do recognize some of the Issues with apartheid but see it being not our problem and that the current South African government should stand.
  • Italy: The bombing of Rio is very divisive to the Italian people. On the one hand, the points raised by Nelson Mandela and the SALF are valid and the apartheid government is awful. On the other, the bombing of Rio causes people to dislike the rebels and agree that they would be horrible leaders. So, Italy decides not to intervene in the South African rebellion. The development of the new IFV, nicknamed the Busquito, continues as planned. Computer technology continues development, and all prior projects continue as usual, with the first of Italy's destroyers and the first of Italy's missile cruisers are deployed in September.

1970.0

Under the pretense of liberating the Christians from Muslim rule, Ethiopia invades South Sudan, using their far superior industry to quickly take much of the lower jungles.

Millions of people in the Federation are outraged by SALF's actions and stand in solidarity with Rio, demanding that the Federation government declare war on Nelson Mandela for these actions.

Japan's industry makes a tremendous boost this year, already pushing past the capabilites of China.

Seeing the recent civil war in the USSR, the remaining Communist nations feel great distrust for their current government. Czechoslovakia begins to implement reforms to become a social democracy, and the democratic rebels in Greece make a resurgence in light of Yugoslavia's intervention.

In light of so much enthusiasm over UFO's, the Nation of Islam makes incredible progress of becoming a significant religion in western North America. The Church of Scientology, meanwhile, goes international, setting up cult meetings in both East Asia and Western Europe.

A strange new light appears in the night sky, akin to a supernova, except that its path suggests it to be within the solar system.

  • United States: American industry continues to improve in spite of the recent recession, due to the continued exportation of resources and growing labor force, and thereby become a leader of the Northern Industrial Group. The Baby Boomer generation continues to emphasize the youth-based culture, stressing the creed "love not war" and otherwise bringing a reformist conscience to America. This highly-involved youth, not wanting another conflict in Europe, begin protesting the government to seek reconcilliation with the USSR. . Science Fiction and Superhero television grow in national popularity, which all espouse good philosophical values under the Censorship Bureau. NASA continues to make breakthroughs in space exploration, sending new lunar landing modules this year. Military and naval bases continue to be manned around the world, particularly in East Asia and Central Europe. The blockade of the Aegean Sea continues. The internet continues to grow along with the digital industry. The internet continues to grow as more poeple invest in websites and internet searching. Much overseas trade increases with west Africa to fill the vacuum left by the Federation. The US stations much of its east coast navy at the mouth of the Mediterranean, as well as distributed north near Greenland and Canada. The military is pulled back from Europe (except 30,000 in Greece) and restationed to southern US States and Territories, particularly the Virgan Islands. We ask to exstablish closer trade and political connections with India and South Africa. President Bonesteel visits Saudi Arabia to confer with the new monarch, bringing some Muslim aids who visit Mecca. Financial and industrial aid resumes with the Philippines. 
    • British Diplomacy: We ask your permission to station some of our navy in Hawaii in order to protect you and European colonies in Southeast Asia.
  • The United Kingdom: We wish to open up greater trade with Saudi Arabia and Yemen now that have effectively exited the SDP. Seeing that the Yugoslav invasion of Greece is innevitable we are willing to support for now. We condemn Mandella's actions and, even though South Africa left the Commonwealth, we would like to help it to find a peaceful solution to their problems. We agree that apartheid is wrong and must be eliminated. A force of 175,000 is sent to South Sudan and Ethiopia is ordered to stop the invasion. We admire Ethiopia's efforts to help their Christian brothers but do not think this is the correct way to go about doing it. We remind Ethiopia that Sudanese-Uganda is an autonomous territory of the United Kingdom and any further attacks on the area will result in a declaration of war from us and many of the EU members. We ask them to stop the invasion and seek a more peaceful conference (message me on my talk page if you wish to discuss this). We majorly invest in trade with the USA and Japan using Hong Kong as the trading point.
    • French Diplomacy: The French warn that defending sudanese-uganda is not necesarily an obligation of the EU as it is not of direct importance to EU interests or security, and recommend due to the relative isolation of the of the region that the British pull out of the territory similar to how the French have pulled out of areas of they deemed unimportant.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continue throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The Japanese National Railways continue expanding their infrastructure and continue building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Further research on the artefacts continue in secret. Several new highways continue construction. Meanwhile, alternate energy sources are invested in. The Church of Scientology sees no popularity in Japan.
  • USSR: After several months of hard fighting, the civil war, known as the 'Winter Revolution' is over. As the war went on, it became less about ideologies and more about which rulers would take power after the war was over. In the end, the hardline Communists, known as the 'New Bolsheviks', are put down, and the conservative faction, known as the 'Whites' (even though they share little idealogicaly with the Whites of the October Revolution) comes to power. The name upsets some of the members of the Union, but it largely goes unnoticed. The new leader of the Union is named Boris Yeltsin. The government goes through a series of reforms, allowing more autonomy for the republics. Referenda are held in the Baltic States, and they all vote to exit the Union, but retain close economic and political ties. What is left is a unified nation. Idealogically, the Union is still officially Communist. However, the Union has and is willing to adopt more western economic and political policies. Yeltsin makes a speech addressing the new nation, and is quoted saying "Before, we were a fading power. The world fought on without us. But, I say to you now, we are a New Union, and we will reclaim our rightful place in the world. For the good of the people and the nation!"
  • Kurdistan begins military. Kurdish industry, particularly petrochemicals and associated products, continues. With jobs widely available, Kurdistan begins to promote immigration from its poorer neighbours, particularly of skilled professionals, who flock from Iran, Saudi Arabia and other countries to Kurdistan. Kurdish religious tolerance, which has seen Jews, Zoroastrians, Yazidis and Christian splay major role sin society and government, helps promote this. Kurdistan offers an alliance to Ethiopia. Free access to study its ruins is offered to any nation that is willing to share nuclear and aerospace technology, assuming that nation has valuable technology.
    • ​Ethiopia agrees to further trade relations, but wishes to remain politically independent at this time
  • Italy: The government is having a much harder time avoiding, let alone abating, the hysteria gripping the populace after the recent "superfauxva." The government begins investing in research into computer-operated nuclear weapons systems for defense purposes. The troops sent in to help with the liberation of Greece attack Communist strongholds in the Peloponnese Peninsula. All other projects continue as normal.
  • France: With the continued decline of the Communist Bloc the government continues to scale back its aggresive attitude towards the Soviets and troops are pulled out of Romania leaving a force of 50,000. De Gaulle - after more then a decade in power - to everyone's surprise steps down. In his final weeks in office de Gaulle gives a speech thanking the people of France for having granted him the opportunity to serve them and states all that the French State has accomplished in th past decade. De Gaulle's exit from office creates elections frenzy amongst the parties as everyone moves to fill the void left by de Gaulle. Despite the hopes of the left to gain power after over a decade in obscurity they only manage to form a weak opposition against Right wing Coalition dominated by the Christian democrats, and Gaullist republicans. The new government continues de Gaulles policies and the transformation of the French armed forces continue as the overbloated French army is reduced to 1.2 million strong. More emphasis is placed on a modern and rapid military force over the overwhelming numbers or massive defenses of the previous years. older tanks, apcs, and other armor are taking out of circulation as modern armor is introduced With the AMX 30, and the VAB becoming the standard, along side several new armored car models, plans to role out a new tank model are also made (along the lines of the otl Leopard II. The FAMAS is completed along with the F 70 SMG also coming out (a predecessor to the P 90)  The Air force under goes a massive expansion as the government decides that airial supremacy should the focus of the armed forces. The new advances in electronics greatly improves the accuracy of missiles, and targeting systems in jets and plans to improve the Mirage 5 design with these new advances along side developing several tactical fighters such as the AX 10 (based on the SAAB designs from Sweden) and several jet bombers though plans to come out with newer models are made due to the rapid advancements in technology namely stealth, and radar tech, (similar to the otl precursor to the Euro fighter), newer models of helicopters are also developed with VTOL tech entering new stages of development. Naval expansion also occurs as the craft carriers revamped with new tech and efforts to modernize them begin. More subs, frigates, and missile cruisers are commissioned. The Union Forces are created as a voluntary force (with the foreign legion as its core) Paris recognizes the force as a core component to Union security and with this they offer all those who serve full French citizenship after five years service. The advances in robotics, and engineering amaze French industrial leaders and society as a whole as French industry in the French Metropolis and the in the African Departments see exponential growth. The ruins in the French Sahara are looked upon with massive interest from the French scientific community and the French military and the site is declared a place of national importance and placed under heavy surveillance, with this new important resource in French Africa the government fully adopts the policy of keeping The sub-saharan region, and settling the interior of the continent. The ruins are heavily investigated and any artifacts are sent to Algiers or back to France to be fully studied with the new data granted by the machine. the research helps areas already being developed like medecine (bio-engineering in particular), engineering (particularly aerospace, and robotics), physics and nuclear physics, electronics and strides are made in the development lf lasers, robotics, computation (thanks to the internet which the military uses for a wide variety of communication and data storage purposes) and bio-engineering. The French electronics industry continues to boom, as ways of coding data improve dramaticly from new technology, and with the aid of the internet  telecommunications also see a dramatic increase in efficiency. A new policy of allowing Christians from Africa, or the middle east to migrate to France should they desire a new life begin as efforts to increase the population of North Africa. Developments in Vertical Take off and Landing are made, along with panel technology, and optics and engine capacities which could greatly benefit military technological development. Also, developments in the hardening of industrial metals, are made. Efforts to improve higher education numbers begin as grants are given to those who request it. A new cultural movement known as Europeanism begins in some academic circles as a direct response to the growth of EU and the growth of France's position within the organization. Many French begin looking at a brighter future without violence on the continent and many consider the possiblity of improving relations with a re-formed USSR. Many areas of Central and Southern France grow in importance as industrialization in those areas go. The North African Departments also enjoy a major growth in industry due to greater investment from the Pied-Noir, and due to the fact that the Harkis are becoming further integrated into French society. The population of Pied-noirs grows to three million and the Harki (those natives who have embraced French culture) reach 4.5 million becoming the largest ethnic group in the region. Algiers, Bones, Tunis, Oran, and Tripoli become core cities for Franco-Harki culture and for white settlement. Forces in the Middle East start retreating as the Levant seems to have stabilized leaving a skeleton force of 2000 troops to keep order in the levant. A new law is passed establishing that all male French citizens will be given basic military training upon turning 18 though it will be restricted to a weekend twice a year and should a national emergency ever occur a national draft would be implemented though obligatory military service is abolished in favor of voluntary. With the recent reforms to the EU France now stands as the dominant member of the organization and as such the position of the Right Wing grows. Some agricultral companies begin investing in the development of bio-diesel tech as the new advances in biological engineering prove the potential to make a large profit on the product. Development of nuclear tech continues as nuclear energy provided by the plants proves tremendously beneficial and five more power plants throughout Southern France and the African Departments. The supernova event in the galaxy intrigues most of the French scientific community and leads many to speculate a cosmic occurrence that might have happened in the past. Many of those who follow the alien cults, however, claim it is the aliens coming to attack. The French government supports efforts for the Czech efforts to reform the state and offer them entry into the European Union (other mod, please respond).
  • Republic of the Philippines: The Philippines continues to develop a centralised planned economy that promotes economic growth through labor and capital-intensive manufactured exports with heavy emphasis on its heavy industry such as its steel, shipbuilding, automobile, semiconductor, and petrochemical industries. The rapid growth of the industrial sector draws millions of labourers, previously living in rural areas, into the urban areas. The government introduces modern technologies into outdated or newly built facilities at a rapid pace. Some facilities are equipped with automation systems to boost worker productivity with the slowing, though still rapid, population growth. Despite some competition from Indonesia, the economy continues to grow at a rapid pace, aided by the end of recession in the Federation, rapid growth in Japan, and continued economic ties with the United States. The rapid growth of its business conglomerates continues. Inflation is controlled by a conservative monetary policy and tight fiscal measures. Government intervention in the economy is greatly reduced and socio-economic policies enter a period of liberalisation. The government’s investment in public projects focusing on sanitation, education and infrastructure increases. The government decreases the military expenditure to 1% of its gross domestic product, sacrificing billions of dollars for the Philippine’s economic progress. President Elizabeth Bayabos apologises for earlier aggression in Sabah and would like to develop diplomatic and economic ties with Britain and the rest of Europe. While she is rather anti-American imperialism, she believes that the two countries will inevitably collaborate in keeping Indonesia weak, a potential threat to Philippine national security and interests. A downward spiral in Philippine-Federation relations begin to occur due to the Federation supporting Indonesia. The Philippines condemns the Indonesian unification and funds/supports Indonesian separatist movements. The Philippines attempts to spread Philippine irredentism to Indonesian Borneo and North Sulawesi.
  • Federation of the Levant: 1970 is a very calm year in the Levant. The LFF(Levantine Football Federation) creates a joint football organization for Europe, called the EIFU (European Internation Football Union). It offers membership to:
    • ​France
    • UK
    • Germany
    • Italy
    • Portugal
    • Ireland
    • Sweden
    • Denmark
    • Norway

    • Kurdistan
      • ​French Diplomacy: The French agree.
      • Italian Dip: We also agree.
      • British Diplomacy: We agree.
      • The LFF representatives now propose for a first tournament to be hosted in the Levant in 1974. This tournament would consist of the four current members and any other member who joins the EIFU this year. 
      • Poland agrees.
  • Western African Federation: We continue to expand military and economy. We're still planning to join the football league as a nation club. As we granted independence by UK in 1960, we hope to improve relations. Some windmills and farms continue to be built, while some navy ships also constructed. Population growth is 3% off and slowly grows in our Capital City of Lagos.
  • Yemen: We continue to build our infrastructure while the king of Yemen grows very bored.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Recession finally ends within the Federation as its increased attempts to fix its economic problems leads to a new stabilized oil price, a much more intensive resource extraction market, as well as more emerging high tech industries. With the advent of more advanced computer systems and miniaturizing electronics, the inclusion of computers into military hardware begins with notable advances allowing for development of new vehicles of all sorts to come about in tanks, APC, planes, helicopters, ships, almost everything the Federation maintains. The various legislations put ahead in order to prevent money hoarding and non investment into the economy, while unpopular with the rich and leading to multiple arrests, President Gonzales with heavy support from the military, particularly his military connections prevents any further issues against him. The attempts to hide money overseas are also snuffed out as the Federation executive and judicial branches rail against the corruption and issues of the Federal Congress outing money hoarders, and non-investors. The high tech computer industries continue to advance further as they push the envelope learning new coding languages and designs from the AI as it reveals new technology to Federation scientists who in turn pass it along to computer companies bringing high advancement in technology in an amazingly short period of time.

This ironically begins bringing out the Civilian internet which begin to grow at a rapid rate. Information gleaned from the AI itself have shown sophisticated improvement in the internet as not having to do much of the in-between research allows for incredible advancement. President Gonzales seeing nearly an 83% approval for movement against Mandela and his rebels declares him an enemy of the state, and increases its peacekeeping forces from the paltry 10,000 to nearly 150,000 with support of a large armored and mechanized corps, (nearly 500 vehicles) a large amount of Aircraft (500+) as well as moving the Supercarrier Santander, Battleship Buenos Aires, five cruisers, 20 destroyers, ten frigates, the Ballistic Missile Submarine Grendel, and five attack submarines into the area. Federation forces immediately begin to secure key South African cities providing support to the Afrikaners and other whites within the country immediately setting up defensive walls for many white settlements, as well as engaging in the full expulsion of any Black South Africans related to the rebellion from many White dominated cities (Cape Town, and many of the coastal areas) even managing to gain enough support from local whites to wall off the white dominated Eastern Coast. The Federation in response to growing needs as well as advancing technology unveils the FMI 121 Almagro tank. With heavy armor, ability to carry troops into battle, and a 120 mm smoothbore gun, its realized as one of the first military peices of equipment based around the concept of keeping the federations combined arms doctrine into play by not just advancing infantry with the armor, but having it become a core component rather than a more recon or follow up force. The Federation gaining some information from various databases in the ruins begins development of a new type of engine focused heavily on Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) with emphasis on using this to replace helicopters in some capacities.
  • Poland integrated into EU.

1970.5

In the United States, landings occur on either coast up and down, targeting prominent cities. Washington DC, Boston, New York, Philidelphia, Norfolk, Charlestown, Jacksonville, and Miami all along the East coast, with major landings occuring on the West Coast at LA, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and the Rebuilt Site at Portland. All communications are lost with Anchorage. Reports of attacks, and weapons fire comes from all these cities and surrounding suburbs followed by a startling dead zone of communication from these areas prompting many US national Guard units to mobilize without orders from the Federal Government managing to use the local mountain range in California to combat these invaders somewhat effectively using the high ground. Canada sees landing as well with attacks occuring as the objects make landfall in the St Lawrence River and off the coast of Vancouver.


In Central America, the Second Mexican Empire sees major attack on Mexico City by aircraft, and sees the loss of huge swaths of northern territory immediately as unknown contacts conquer the area with ease. Veracruz, Tampico, Acapulco, and Manzanillo all suffer the same attacks as overwhelming amounts of forces target the great power with reports of civilians being slaughtered indiscriminantly.


South America sees the same Invasion as clusters of Objects focused around strategic targets such as Marcaibo, Caracas, and Barcelona in Venezuela, Tumaco, Cartagena, and Covenas suffering the same fate in Colombia. Ecuador and Peru, and Chile all suffer attacks as well with landings on Puerto Bolivar, Manta, and Ezmeraldes with further attacks on Talara, Lima, Matarani, and Tacna. Chile sees attacks on the entire state as nearly every city is situated need the coast with only military forces holding a defensive line in the Andes along the entire coast holding on for dear life. On the East Coast, Fortaleza, Natal, All of Guyana, Recife, Salvadore, Sao Paulo and more notably Rio de Janeiro are hit while another major force begins to attack forces at Montevideo, Buenos, Aires, Mar Del Plata and Viedma. Only on the Federation West coast are any meaningful defensives organized as the mountains provide a clear advantage to the defending forces.


Most notably in Africa attacks occur along the Congo, the coast of Nigeria, a major attack occurs on Cape town in South Africa much of the Sahara is left alone but further attacks on Egypt, Ethiopia and Kenya leave the continent devastated as remaining colonial powers, and other independent nations are unable to effectively fight the unknown forces with any effectiveness at all.


In Europe the the Invasion occurs and hits most of the European coast, striking the Entirety of the Netherlands, Brest, Normandy, and Calais in Northern France, parts of Southern France, Hamburg, Rostok and Kiel in Germany, Danzig in Poland, The entirety of the newly freed Baltic States are hit heavily as well. Along the Mediterrenean coast much of North Africa is hit by an invasion force, while Naples, Rome, Sicily, Barcelona, Gibraltar, Seville, Venice, Zagreb, and many other coastal cities in the baltics are hit. Turkey suffers a major hit as well Losing Istanbul almost Immediately with further attacks on Izmir and Adana causing issues. The British suffer major hits as well with major landings off the coast of Scotland, and Southern England sandwhiching the British between two invading forces.


The USSR suffers only minor setbacks as many of the objects are forced to land in concentrated locations allowing military forces to co-ordinate and deal with the situation a bit better. With the only major landings occuring in the Black Sea and near Vladivostok, the USSR is able to effectively deploy against them. The concentration of firepower, however, seems to be too much as the Soviet troops lose Sevastapol and Vladivostok to the same kind of shock and awe combat that caused mass disorganiation in the response forces.


Asia suffers heavily as attacks occur all across the coasts of China, Japan, Korea, Indochina, India, and all over the southern portions of the Middle East as well. China in particular while trying to fight back suffers upwards of three million civilian casualties within the first few hours of attack with similar reports being brought up in Japan, and Indochina as well as India who has begun to respond much the same as the Chinese have.


Hoping to understand this unknown show of force, many world leaders meet on a neutral ship in the middle of the Atlantic protected by a large force of warships and even two Carrier Groups from the US and Federation Respectively (US carrier unknown) (Federation Carrier Unknown). Both seem damaged lightly but fully operational showing lack of knowledge or regard for naval forces.

Many of the first hand accounts of the unknown forces place them at humanoid in nature, wearing combat clothing and using relatable weaponry. Many reports put these "Aliens" as reptillian in nature.


  • Federation of the Americas: Unable to sit back and watch the country die President Gonzales being one of the few remaining government officials left alive following the attack in Rio De Janeiro where a summit between many State and Federal leaders was occuring is forced to declare martial law via and executive order unable to even find enough congressmen to conduct a vote. He immediately begins the mobilization of any and all forces rushing nearly 500,000 troops to Buenos Aires and Montevideo, another 200,000 to Sao Paulo but is unable to move north to help Rio De Janeiro. He does, however, mobilize all national guard units as well and seeing wanton death brought to his civilians begins the draft. In an attempt to save all naval forces he can, he orders all ships put to sea to regroup at a later date and personally begins leading the Defense at Sao Paulo. Appointing the Aging General Almagro to the Defense of Colombia he drags General Jose Peron to the defense of the Andes mountains as he pushes to organize his forces. The Federation sees large amounts of infantry, armor, some sort of bipedal war machines, as well as large amounts of aircraft swarming the sky as they rush to defend all their cities if possible. With upwards of 1.5 million deployed currently with another on the way through training or reserve mobilizations the Federation desperately clings to life as it throws everything it has to bear at the aliens fielding thousands of aircraft and tanks into battles. President Gonzales after weeks of fighting towards Rio is unable to make any major gains and begins looking at alternative ways of attack. While there have been issues of conflict in many other cities the North sees major success as General Almagro shows no mercy executing captured aliens with brutal efficiency and in a major show of force uses Mustard gas on the aliens driving them to small beachheads on the Venezuelan coasts looking primarily to keep Venezuela's Oil industry alive and well to keep the Federation war effort afloat. General Almagro sees no success in Colombia as he sees Bogota fall and major attacks on population centers occur causing a refugee rush to Ecuador and Venezuela. The Federation General Jose Peron while timid, makes his name known as he manages to utilize and under equipped national guard army and outdated equipment to hold back the Aliens in the mountains but sees more modern units make their entrance further on into the alien offensive. He makes a concentrated attempt to keep Santiago afloat and fortifies the city making it a lynchpin of his defensive operations through the Andes. Research into new technology continues in earnest as examples of technology from the aliens are brought back for research. Government census officials say that nearly 1.5 million Federation citizens could already be dead but they are unable to pinpoint effectively yet. With the effective exit of the navy from the conflict the Federation Supreme Admiral of the Navy William Heisenberg, a successful second generation German immigrant. He immediately begins to consolidation of the Federations fleets equally into the Atlantic and Pacific Flotillas, equally splitting each sea into two separate fleets. An attack fleet and a support fleet each consisting of a mix of the carriers in the Federation's fleet. Miraculously the fleet was largely ignored as the navy made its exit into international waters and the Supreme Admiral Heisenberg was able to not only largely avoid casualties but also bring nearly 50,000 marines with him. In South Africa the Federations deployment of nearly 150,000 troops has proven to be a life saver as the forces are able to no only immediately respond to the alien landings but due to South Africa being considered some sort of lesser threat the force sent to invade was much smaller than any of the invasion forces hitting the rest of the worlds Great Powers. This allows not only an expansive and dynamic defense but also major victories scored against landing forces that have hit the South African Beaches. Any attempts by Mandela to make offensives are put down Brutally as the Federation now begins securing South Africa as a base of operations to supply and house the exiled Federation navy.
  • Western African Federation: We continue to make an improvement of the economy and expand military, thus recruiting more troops for total of what we have currently. Meanwhile, the populations grows slowly throughout 1970. We continue to build more fortresses and bunkers for defensive fortifications against other enemies.
  • United States: Mere hours ahead of the invasion, the vice president and most of congress evacuates Washington and reconvenes in Cheyenne, Wyoming, but decides not to retreat completely underground. The military does, however, and now operates out of Cheyenne Mountain. The President and United Nations are relocated to the USS Missouri in the central Atlantic. Military fortifications are set up on the Nevada and Appalatian Mountains, utilizing the high ground to hault the invaders. A full frontal assault of 600,000 troops are deployed across the Appalatians to secure Atlanta, then turn south to cut off the invaders in Florida. The 300,000 troops already stationed in Florida build up Orlando as a fortress to protect the NASA facility, as well as spreading out to the surrounding everglades. Satilite imagery from the NASA base in Houston are used heavily to assess the position of the invaders in regions that have lost contact. 700,000 troops cross the Rio Grande from Texas to liberate northern Mexico, sending 500 fighters and 50 bombers from Houston to give air support on the flat terrain. The fleet in the Aegean sea breaks off from Greece to secure the Stait of Gibraltre and protect it from invasion. The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. A single carrier fleet attacks the invasion fleet off the coast of New York, testing to see the relative strength of their surface-to-surface weapondry. The Pacific navy is sent to secure Hawaii and the strategic islands in the Southwest Pacific. We ask the Federation to join a joint attack from Cuba and the Vigin Islands to liberate Florida. We ask the Philippines for a joint counter invasion to liberate China and Japan. As soon as the invaders in Alaska or Vancouver are confirmed to be in an isolated area, standing orders are to send two (2) tactical nuclear missiles against them. Similar standing orders are in place for other locations in the western hemisphere. NASA works to visualize and understand the invaders' spacecraft nearby the Earth, and calculate how tactical nuclear missiles could be launch against them. The troops in Germany pull out and submit to leadership of France, the troops in Romania similarly submit to leadership to Romania.
    • ​French Dip: The French welcome the American troops and sent them to support the defense of the Rhine region in coordination with allied forces. 
  • Federation of the Levant: The Levant has the privilege of not being attacked yet, but we do not intend to wait for it. The government is moved to a military base near Mount Meron. The six nuclear weapons we have right now are prepared to launch at any second, and construction of four more starts, with lots of the Levantine economy pushed into it. Everything not related to the War of Judgment, as some religious people are calling it, is ignored as the entirety of the economy is focused on defending the Levant. All men and women 15 years and older are armed and trained. The navy is prepared and focused fully on defense, in particular on defending the Dead Sea Canal. Three million of the eight million large population is now armed. Levatine scientists begin looking for the source of the invaders, the heart of them, seeking to send a full nuclear force to destroy it. Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Beirut, Damascus and Aleppo are all tuened into military bases. All population in major cities leaves for the mountains to hide, while the military population defends those cities which are now practiczally forts. The Levant, after hearing of the Filipino treachery, SECRETLY orders the Mossad to capture the Filipino president and take him to the Mount Meron Base. (I ASK THE MODS TO RNG THIS)
  • France: The first hour of the day is disorienting the entire French state is in disarray a lot of the major coastal cities in the north are hit hard by what can only be described something out of the War of the World's radio program decades ago. Much of the population in the northern coastal areas flee as the unknown enemy advance destroying a lot of what they see. In the south the invaders aim largely for the port city of Marseilles, Toulon and Nice the heartlands of  the heartland of Southern France, but with much of the French navy in the Mediterranean and thanks to the quick thinking of recently appointed Rear Admiral Henri Bacot is able to get most of the other naval officers operational to begin attacks on the enemy landing forces employing massive overwhelming firepower on the concentrated forces. All naval vessels are ordered to leave harbor throughout France as the naval command notices the general lack of knowledge of naval power these new enemies have. The small naval force that was stationed at Le Havre (you forgot my biggest port in the north feud) leaves port to try to meet up with the American and British fleet sin the area and coordinate attacks in support of the defence of Western Europe. The Navy is ordered to keep communication lines with North Africa alive and to keep supply lines with Bone, Oran, Algiers and Tunis alive at all costs. the missile submarines launch war heads at landing forces to no end as the aircraft carriers sortie non-stop to cause as much damage as possible to them. The air force is completely mobilized as new fighters and old fighers are sortied together to engage enemy forces in full strength. With the largest air force in Europe the French high command hopes to at least stall the invaders long enough to secure the Mediterranean Sea and to keep the alien forces behind the senne river as the defence of Paris is prepared. With the civilian government unable to react properly the military takes hold of the reigns declaring martial law throughout the country. Due to the already heavy influence that the military holds over society the population falls in line with the rapid chagne of regime but the military promises to keep the civilian government in power and to share power as it the will of the people to stand as one in this time of crisis. The new government is ran by Maurice Challe a famous air force general who dealt with the counter-insurgency in North Africa years before and by a commitee of civilian and military leaders. The move to the Alps for better protection and making the tough call the French high command decide that it is necesary to protect the Rhine, Paris, and as much of North Central France as possible using the natural rivers to the advantage of the French forces, The 200,000 strong force in the southern Netherlands are ordered to engage the alien invaders while a 300,000 strong armored force coming from the south aimed at trying to secure as much of Normandy and North East France as possible and they are ordered to use the natural defenses of the region to the best of their abilities. Special forces also do as much damage as they can with hit and run operations and to collect intel for the French military. Meanwhile, 300,000 troops located in France are sent South to engage the invading force and if possible meet up with Italian forces in the defence of the Alps. Forces in the north are told to coordinate with British forces in the northern Netherlands and with German forces to the best of their ability to aid in the defence of the vital Rhine River which will lead into the heart of Europe. A national draft is called and all able men that do not work in strategic industries or are of scientific backgrounds are to serve their country. heavy usage of heat rounds are made to inflict as much damage on the invaders as possible and the French skilled in mobile warfare and combined arms try to combat the enemy forces with overwhelming force plans to set up a line of defence to the west are made as it is decided that Britanny wil lbe abandoned but not without a steady retreat. No mercy is shown to the invaders as the French tradition of brutal suppression of enemies come out the highly urbanized areas of northern France are turned into death traps as French troops and armor engage the enemy with all they can and pull out to attack from another direction when things get too bad. In North Africa the French forces numbering some 400,000 (the troops that were already stationed there plus those I pulled out of Central Africa a few turns ago) are ordered to engage the invading forces in coordination with the union forces that managed to escape the devastating attack on the Congo region and West Africa the Sahara is declared an area that must be held at all costs due to the ruins and due to the large amounts of resources located in subsaharan region. Harkis and ethnic groups loyal to France are divided into those who will serve in paramilitary groups and those who will work in the industrial region growing in North Africa. The paramilitary and united French forces engage in the defence of Algiers, Tunis, Bone, Oran, and Tripoli, it is decided that East Libya will become a hit-and-run area due to the low population in the region and efforts to evacuate whatever population lives there begin. Pardons are offered to those who opposed French rule should they take up arms in the defense of their homeland. Algiers and Bone are given special attention as their survival will mean that the link between Africa and the metropolis remains intact. The Island of Corsica is turned into the naval headquarters of the French navy protected by the three carriers, and most of the French fleet that isn't engaged in operations in the north atlantic or in the Mediterranean Sea and all European navies in the Mediterranean Sea are requested to cooperate with French forces. The government states the slow process of moving as much industry as they can southbound into central and southern France. The massive war machines of the aliens and their air forces inflict large casualties on both the civilian population and on the military that is sent to protect the homeland. The death toll is believed to be at at least 600,000 civilians potentially over a million. The French allow all able bodied humans who are trying to flee from the violence to come into French territory under the condition that one in every three serve in the union forces to protect the French and in the future led to possible counter attacks. As many specimens of the enemy forces that can be collected are done so along with their weaponry to study and employ. Usage of chemical weapons are also employed in the more desolate areas of North Africa to harm the large lizards as they are now determined to be. French kill all they can as they defend their homeland with a passion, many claim never again as they refuse to surrender like they did 30 years prior. All enemies brought back are dissected on the spot or tortured to see if they understand any of the human languages. The information taking from the ruins are checked to see if there is any mention of these enemies or their technology. Technological breakthroughs are now demanded as the French scientific community goes into overdrive trying to make new tech or the military. VTOL are tested to replace helicopters, while the bi-podel machines fire power, armor and mechanics are also dissected to see how they can applied to French machinery. The new AMX Rhino comes off the production line based on recent technological developemnts in hardened armor, heat projectiles, kinetic propulsions, and improved engines, along with using DU along with HEAT rounds (DU is depleted uranium rounds) (the AMX 70 is something of a mix of the Leopard II and the Leclerc). The new Rhino tank is launched onto the production line at once. Meanwhile, research into stealth, improved radar, bio and robotic engineering and other areas continue. Efforts to understnad the new enemies transportantion is made to see what can be learned from it. It is made priority to keep communication lines with the rest of Europe open as the French realize that while they are strong it will take a united Europe to carry out the defense and survival of Europe. All nuclear weapons are put on high alert and ready to be used despite the reservations of the French High Command. Efforts to get intel from the satellites in space are made though it is doubtful this will occur. Defenses along all major and minor geographic barriers such as rivers, and hilly regions or forests are prepared throughout North to southern France as fall back lines of defense are prepped should the French forces be forced to retreat into the interior. North Africa's heavy military complex is used fully to hold the lnie against inading forces. (Due to the wish to protect white settlements earlier and to protect the ruins and industry this area is one of the most militarized in France).
  • French Dip: The French call on al EU leaders to help in the defence of Europe and to join their French and German brothers in the defense of Europa. The Government also declares that it will provide the bulk of the forces to eventually liberate Europe if the rest of the continent follows suit. An emergency war summit in the Alps is called and the European leaders of Spain, the USSR, Sweden, the czechs, and all EU leaders are called to join it to determine how the defense of Europe will be carried out. The Federation and American leaders are invited as well if they get word of the summit. Europe War Summit 1970.
    • I request that the mods respond for all European countries that aren't playing otherwise I request permission from nathan and feud as a mod myself to handle the European defense for countries that are no longer playing such as Finland, Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, etc. With Blood and Iron (talk) 20:30, November 16, 2015 (UTC)

The United Kingdom: We enact the draft causing the British army to rise from 9000 to 1.34 million (not including the colonies). The UK declares a state of emergency and shuts down the borders, only allowing her Allies to enter the country and provide military aid. The entire British airspace is closed and is only allowed to be used by the military. The royal family goes on "holiday" to New Zealand and the current Prime Minister is declared the official leader of the UK. The city of London as well as the Thames river are shut down preventing anyone from leaving or entering the vital area. High security measures are taken to secure the capitol city. Wales is evacuated and turned into a military area. Belfast and Edinburgh are also turned into major military training and manufacturing areas. The government begins designating pre-existing safehouses in the event that the alien invaders make further advances in to the mainland. 500,000 troops are sent to South England along with amphibious and a portion of the UK Air Force. 430,000 are sent to Scotland. Three strategic nukes are dropped on the advancing enemy (two in South England and one in Scotland.) A huge blockade of the North Sea begins and we ask the French to aid in the blockade. 100,000 meet with the 50,000 British troops already based in the Netherlands along with part of the British Navy, who, engages the enemy on the coast. 200,000 soldiers are sent to Brittany and we ask the French to continue the attacks on the invaders there rather than just leave the area.

  • French Dip: The French agree but they say they will pull out if it is to much as there are other areas more vital to French security then britanny and the French request that the british forces currently serving there be placed under the joint command to aid in other places as well if that need be. 
  • British Diplomacy: We understand and agree.
  • Kurdistan: Although not yet attacked, prepares itself for a possible oncoming onslaught, with cities massively fortified. Reserves are fully mobilized in preparation for attack, and organized into mobile groups situated at key points in preparation to destroy any attacks. Women are also trained to join the reserves, with 200,000 joining the pool of reservists. The Kurdish government's secret program to produce mustard gas and tabun gas in large quantities is stepped up, and major factories are moved into remote areas to preserve industrial capacity,w hill oil is stockpile and its production facilities fortified. 100,000 Kurdish troops move north to Adana to assist the Turkish forces there.

Germany: Faced with invasion the German government declares a state of emergency and begins to relocate to the Bavarian Alps. The army and national guard are mobilized and establish a defensive line in the north to hold back any alien advances and evacuate refugees to the south. Units in enemy territory are ordered to dig in and buy time for people to evacuate the cities affected. Additional German troops are deployed to help out our French and Polish Allies. All important industries are turned over to government control and begin to turn out war supplies. Our scientists begin to study everything about the enemy hoping to find a weakness. The French ruins are also studied for any helpful information.

  • Japan: The alien attacks catch the Government of Japan and the Self-Defence Forces completely off guard; as no one expected an attack on an absolutely neutral nation, especially not anything from space. Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio in desperation diverts lots of funding into the military again, and conscription on a large scale is in order. He mentions that re-militarisation is only temporary and if in the event the aliens are defeated in Japan and Earth; the nation will revert back to its neutral status. The Self-Defence Forces are ordered to only defend Japan from the aliens; and nothing else. Mitsubishi and Fuji Heavy Industries, with some more funding; begins in desperation to build more modern aircraft for the SDF, though they find themselves producing more of the old WW2 era planes, such as the Mitsubishi A6M Zero. Attempts to modernise the SDF technology and vehicles are under way, though is not going as fast due to the SDF still using and relying on old WW2 era technology, due to the move for neutrality. The Prime Minister and the Monarchy relocate to Gunma Prefecture, though the location is kept secret.
  • Saudi Arabia: Without being attacked yet, we brace for the possibilities. We form a union with Yemen to grow stronger. We will have an alliance with the Levant, as well as the Gulf Nations and Egypt. The Union with Yemen will rename the country simply Arabia, although the House of Saud remains in control. (Vatonica is quitting in protest of aliens. Person takes over.)
    • You cannot just unify with Yemen. Mods, please fix this.
    • You can merge Arabia and Yemen but you can't post for Vat (his turn is below). -Nate
  • Arabia: As unification occurs we prepare for war. We turn all production over to weapons and start creating citizens militia to prepare for the greater war. We encourage Oman, Qatar, UAE and Bahrain to join for safety. We move troops into Yemen and head for Aden to drive the alien landings out. Wile Mecca and Medina are reinforced. Middle east war summit (Dawn of War) is created. We start the dispersing of people and industry from the major cities believing that is why the aliens target places.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin the mass production of thermobaric weapons(invented in World War 2) and researching and creating aircraft similar to the Lockheed AC-140 and use them against alien forces. We use the 20 large scale bunkers to bring in civilians and burn all records to make sure no one finds out to only re open in a hundred years. We use our half a million troops to protect our capital and stay in the mountains abandoning the coast. This sudden lack of troops will cause chaos in the coast but we realize sacrifices must be made. There will also build small bunkers and fortification to protect against the aliens. We will also try to communicate with them. We will evacuate as many civilians and infrastructure to the mountains. We will immediately try to seize their technology to use it against them. There will be investment in communication too.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies while the dominion forces will move to the mountains for the better positions.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will use our army of 70,000 people to protect the colony ordering them to stick with guerrilla warfare until the aliens die or everyone dies.
    • French Dip: The French request that Spanish forces join the general defense of Europe by helping the French take control of the Mediterranean Sea by joint naval exercises and promises to provide troops to help in the eventual liberation of the Spanish coast and eventually that of all of Spain. Paris also requests that the Spanish due to these troubled times become an observer to the EU defense commission and send troops to participate in the general Eu forces being assembled in Central Europe and the Rhineland.
    • Jordan: Hearing of the invasion, laws and orders were made from the Parliament immediately. The first statement was the king may take full control if the Parliament will allow him to. The other order was a small increase in taxing for goods only. The money would go to the military for soldiers, ammunition, etc. We also take an effort to work on our economy.
      • The Levant suggests that Jordan hands over command of its military to the Levant, promising to return it after the War. It states that the Levant is bigger, stabler and better organised, with better strategists. Even if Jordan does not do this, the Levant suggests taht Jordan helps us defend the Suez.
  • Republic of the Philippines: Due to the global economic meltdown, the Philippines continues to develop a centralised planned economy that promotes economic growth through domestic consumption (as opposed to labor and capital-intensive manufactured exports) with heavy emphasis on its heavy industry such as its steel, shipbuilding, automobile, semiconductor, and petrochemical industries. The rapid growth of the industrial sector draws millions of labourers, previously living in rural areas, into the urban areas. The government continues to introduce modern technologies into outdated or newly built facilities . Some facilities are equipped with automation systems to boost worker productivity with the slowing, though still rapid, population growth. Inflation is controlled by a conservative monetary policy and tight fiscal measures. Government intervention in the economy is greatly increased and socio-economic policies enter a period of liberalisation. These however, do not stop the current economic meltdown, with the Philippines experiencing negative growth in the first time for years. The government’s investment in public projects focusing on sanitation, education and infrastructure decreases. The government increases the military expenditure to 10% of its gross domestic product, begining to militarise borders with other countries. The Philippines closes its borders and builds dozens of underground self-sufficient bunkers (including a biosphere, agricultural areas, etc.) in the mountainous Central Luzon region. The Philippines proposes to the alien invaders that they could incorporate the Philippines as an autonomous state (with a separate government) in exchange for peace (MOD RESPONSE).
    • Romanian Dip: We condemn this and the Filipino citizens of Romania will fight against the alien invaders.
    • The Levantine Federation is disgusted with this Filipino cowardice and condemns the region, no longer recognizing it as a nation.
  • Romania: We declare martial law and reinforce our coastline, especially the Southern, unprotected part and fortify our main port Constanta, the largest port on the Black Sea. We send 35,000 troops to Central Europe to help the governments there and 20,000 troops to the Balkans. We begin building war ships based on the ones in the military base of France. Polish and Yugoslavian refugees are welcomed and put to work in order to ensure the survival of Europe. We produce uranium, steel, crops and oil en masse for the war effort. We ask the USSR for support in the liberation of Istanbul, with the possibility to nuke it with a Hirohima-sized bomb. We also ask Britain to submit the forces garrisoned in Romania to us, since we need them in the fight here.
    • British Diplomacy: We agree to let the Romanian government control our troops stationed there. We are also willing to donate one of our many nuclear warheads to Romania so it can take back the Turkish capitol.
  • Italy: The government, finally realizing the magnitude of what they had for so long rejected as a possibility, begins to prepare for the worst. A state of emergency is declared, and the king once more takes emergency command of what remains of the country, this time for however long it takes to remove the alien threat. The government moves to bunkers in Sardinia (which was conveniently spared) to avoid the alien invaders, who have by now occupied most of the country. The Vault Project begins to come into effect, with millions of civilians transferred into the underground safehouses. The navy begins attacking alien strongholds in Rome, Venice, Florence, Naples and Sicily, with support from the air force and what forces remained in Italy. Once these strongholds are taken and held against the inevitable alien counterattacks, they will move to taking back Egypt and French North Africa. The peacekeeping forces in Greece begin a complete strategic withdrawal through Yugoslavia in an effort to take back the coast of that country and Italy.
  • Republic of Malaya: We dispatch troops into Sarawak and Sabah to keep in close proximity with the traitorous Philippines. We mobilize all branches of the armed forces, including the reserve forces to get ready for an impending battle. 
  • Yugoslavia: We stop the intervention in Greece due to the invasion of Yugoslavia, we keep all of our land. We begin a massive assault on what the aliens has conquered in Yugoslvia, sending two million troops to invade the land in all directions. We bomb the alien bases by our air force. We use our navy to attack the coast and we use our Amy with two million men to invade the land. We increase our propaganda use so many people join our army.
  • You don't have two million troops, man. With Blood and Iron (talk) 17:43, November 17, 2015 (UTC)

1971.0

The First real interception of alien broadcasts reveals nothing as the intelligible language chatters on taking over many radio frequencies wherever the aliens land.

The Aliens seemingly understanding of the Surrender of the Philippines begins a clear cut occupation but down and dissenters with ruthless efficiency. From this base many of the Alien forces begin to spread out hitting Taiwan in China as it was ignored in the first strike, as well as pushing onto Borneo and into Indonessias smaller islands. India bitterly clings to life as the initial strikes took up much of its peacetime war making capability but does manage to retain its capital and most of Southern India while suffering painful losses in Bengal and Pakistan.

The Invasion of Europe and North Africa continues underway with many coastal portions of the continent occupied and severe gain made into splitting Germany and France from each other as the drive from the Netherlands south has hit many military units hard. While there were attempts to co-ordinate attacks, many commanders simply don't show up to the planned offensives or more notably, a Germany Unit attempting to save a trapped polish force simply found the entire Polish force dead to the last man. Estimated Casualties put Europe at one of the hardest hit with nearly eight million dead in the first six months, particularly in the Balkans and along the Franco-German border.

In North America, The United States faces grave casualties as the force sent to Liberate northern Mexico suffers nearly 300,000 casualties and has drawn the attention of that particular invasion force bringing the aliens on the doorstep of Dallas and San Antonio within weeks of the US Defeats in northern Mexico. Mexico manages to hold onto Mexico city as it defiantly throws thousands of men at Veracruz to open up a sea lane. However, a small corridor of military forces ise able to keep a line upen to the Federation in Panama. The US carrier group attacking the Invasion forces in New York suffers atrocious casualties once its realized the ships are combat capable but does manage to inflict some serious damage on the Aliens air power in the area allowing the US to hold onto New York. California's major cities begin to fall to the Invaders but the US forces remain resilient in the mountains raining down artillery on the advancing invaders.

In South America, valiant defences along the Andes burn out quite a bit of the Aliens manpower and equipment but what are now called "Soldier Exoskelitons" or War Mechs begin to show their superiority against Federation forces bringing the fight to the main stronghold of Santiago. Colombia remains under control of the Invaders but Venezuela remains under General Almagros control managing to keep oil supplies flowing to the Federation's military forces. Rio Remains under Alien control with President Gonzales leading offensives to retake the City.

Huge Swaths of Africa are taken in short order but upon reaching the Ethiopian border, a vicious counterattack catches many of the Invaders off guard bringing Ethiopian forces into conflict with the invaders halfway across the continent. The Invasion force in South Africa suffer casualties as well as bad judgment in landing forces on the South African front as well as many more troops and much more equipment than expected makes advances inland hard to achieve.

  • Western African Federation: WAF's economy continues to slowly grow and its military to expand. More troops continue to recruit all year, but to say at least we don't have much of them. Currently the troops stands about 650,000. In the meantime, we build more bunkers and fortresses to prevent attacks from other threats. Some warships and ships build and looks to be in construction in one of our ports. Lagos's population is still slowly growing. We little bit concerned about the Invasion of Europe and North Africa.
  • United States: Mere hours ahead of the invasion, the vice president and most of congress evacuates Washington and reconvenes in Cheyenne, Wyoming, but decides not to retreat completely underground. The military does, however, and now operates out of Cheyenne Mountain. The President and United Nations are relocated to the USS Missouri in the central Atlantic. Military fortifications are set up on the Nevada and Appalatian Mountains, utilizing the high ground to hault the invaders. Satilite imagery from the NASA base in Houston are used heavily to assess the position of the invaders in regions that have lost contact. The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. As soon as the invaders in Alaska or Vancouver are confirmed to be in an isolated area, standing orders are to send two (2) tactical nuclear missiles against them. Two tactile nuclear weapons are launch against the aliens in north Mexico and southern Texas. Similar standing orders are in place for other locations in the western hemisphere. NASA works to visualize and understand the invaders' space craft nearby the Earth, and calculate how tactical nuclear missiles could be launch against them. The NSA stationed in Cheyenne are commissioned to decode the signals intercepted from the aliens. Dr. Ernest Langford, representing the National Geographic Society, provides linguistic information from the artifacts thus far as a base to translate the signals. Catherine Langford, unfortunately, was in the Federation communicating with the AI at the time of the attack and has since lost contact. The troops in Germany pull out and submit to leadership of France, the troops in Romania similarly submit to leadership to Romania. The 600,000 troops fortify Atlanta, Roanoke, and similar coastal cities in the southern states, then turn southward to link up with the 300,000 troops stationed in Orlando, who have heavily fortified the everglades and prepare for a full attack on invaders in Jacksonville and Miami. The remaining forces in Texas fall back to a defensive line between San Antonio and Dallas, strengthened by an additional 500,000 troops sent to them. All local authorites and rangers in the southwest are drafted into local militias, utilizing knowledge of the local landscape. The Aegean fleet submits to leadership of Italy, working to liberate coastal cities in the Mediterranean. Seeing the success of holding New York City, much of the Atlantic navy turns south to launch counterinvasions against Manhattan and the mainland, retaking the city. An army of 600,000 moves north along the Appalation Mountains towards New England. A fleet of amphibious transports and battleships secures the Caribbean Sea, hoping to hook up with the navies of Mexico and the Federation. The Pacific navy similarly launches a concentrated attack on San Francisco, while the fortifications on the Nevada mountains continue to occupy the invaders' land forces.
  • Republic of Angola: (Background) After the initial invasion of the colony by alien forces, the Angolan National Alliance and National Union politicians realised that they would receive no support from Europe or even any friendly nations, so quickly banded together to form the National Party of Angola and declared independence (though this was largely symbolic as there was no way to spread news to the mainland). When colonial Forces failed to stop the spread of the invaders, the National Angolan assembly ordered the evacuation of the eastern half of the country, with 300,000 Portuguese civilians and 50,000 colonial troops trekked across the Colony to the easternmost borders (using the Benguela Railway), where it was believed the remaining troops could link up with Rhodesians and Portuguese felling westward and hold their ground. The government is now Alto Zambeze, any has been able to work with local tribes to gain control of the area, around 40,000 Colonial Troops survived and 25,000 tribal militia aid them. (Actual post) Efforts are made to increase the supply of food in the republic, though rationing is extremely prominent with all our resource. Troops are trained heavily in guerrilla warfare and harass minor alien patrols, though no major attacks are committed as it is feared we will only provoke the aliens. The first troops and civilians from Mozambique begin to arrive, but this does not bode well for the state of the invasion on the eastern coast.
  • Arabia: Again we encourage Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and UAE to join Arabia or we will not help them in the event of an alien attack (mod response required). We continue to try to disperse industry and people from cities to the surrounding countryside. We start the construction of airfields on the Yemeni coast after driving the aliens out. We continue trying to build more military equipment and we move our main fleet to Aden.
    • Mod respons: Oman and UAE decline unity, preferring to use the natural barriers of the desert to protect their citizens. Qatar and Bahrain do join with Arabia in a larger federation, hoping to protect their ports from invader attack.
  • Bulgaria: Our forces try in desperation to hold off alien forces. As their forces are seemingly concentrated in the north, we manage to drive some local counter-offensives. We plead for help in the defense of the Balkans.
  • Syria: With news of the Invasion more people begin to join the army raising our army to one million and we send half a million to Turkey to help for the Alien Invasion while the other half dig in and begin to use a slogan called "Syria will become a graveyard for the invaders (aliens)" Via Chat the US gives us control of US nuclear bases and we put them on launch ready alert. We allow anyone over 16 to join the army and anyone under 16 needs a paper from their parents. We begin to set up defenses in Homs, Allpo and Damascus having civil also help.
  • Japan: Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio continues to put lots of funding into the military and conscription on a large scale continues. Fighting against the aliens continues. The Self-Defence Forces are ordered to only defend Japan from the aliens; and nothing else. Mitsubishi and Fuji Heavy Industries, with some more funding; continues to build more modern aircraft for the SDF, alongside with the WW2 era places such as the Mitsubishi A6M Zero. Attempts to modernise the SDF technology and vehicles continues. Meanwhile, the first new and more modern planes for the SDF take form, such as the Kawasaki C-1 and the Mitsubishi F-1; and these new planes begin construction. WW2 military technology continues to be used to fight against the aliens; though more modern military technology and weaponry begins to make an introduction and begin to be used as well. A more modern and improved version of the Mitsubishi A6M Zero is planned. Some cities that are 100,000+ in population within the landlocked Prefectures, along with some other cities with some distance from the coast begin to be fortified, with some notable cities such as Kyoto, Ōtsu, Gifu, Saitama, Western Tokyo, Nagano, Utsunomiya, and Maebashi being heavily guarded. The government secretly now operates in an undisclosed location within Gunma Prefecture instead of Tokyo; and the entire Gunma Prefecture sees the most heavy fortification.
  • Italy: Seeing the massive gains made by the aliens in France and Germany, troops are completely pulled from Yugoslavia for efforts to take the northern portions of the country before the aliens in France and Germany can arrive to reinforce those in Italy. The navy and air force continue their efforts on the ocean, though focusing now more greatly on Venice and Rome, and forces in Italy begin moving northward to liberate the portion of Italy north of Genoa (if it is occupied, if not, forces move there anyway to defend the area). Naval patrols around Sardinia and Sicily begin, with plans to retake Sicily being drafted by war planners. Bunkers continue being constructed in non-alien-controlled areas in hopes that they will be completed by the time they are needed. Industry in areas controlled by Italy is focused solely on military production and the oil stockpiles which Italy built up when oil prices were low are put to use in fueling the air force, navy, and armor divisions.
  • France: The Rhine defence proves a disaster as French forces are forced to pull back after taking heavy casualties. However, they try to withdraw in an orderly fashion attacking the invading forces wherever possible and orders are made to pull all the industrial equipment possible bellow the Loire River and to the Alps and Rhone Rivers where more defensive lines are being established using the highly defensible areas. Efforts to communicate with other European powers are made using lines of communication through the Alps now that the Rhine has been cut off. The militarization of southern France continues as more industrial parts are taking to central and southern French cities. The government authorizes the complete usage of artillery and all weapons within the French arsenal to try to dent the enemy's forces, even tactical nukes though the French are initially hesistant to use this on French soil. They ultimately decide to as forces try to lure the enemy into a near the Seine River dropping five tactical nukes on the enemy forces as a group of the French forces under the command of French commanders who refuse to abandon the capital prepare for what is likely their death. A force of 150,000 troops turn paris into a massive death trap, and the city is emptied of everything that can be taking from industrial parts, to art, to the Eiffel Tower (the symbol of the French state) books, and political transcripts are also taken. Lyon is declared the provisional capital but the government itself operates from the safety of the Alps. increased exploitation of the mines in central eastern and southern France begins as the government demands all production of all strategic resources go towards the war effort. General Maurice Challe is granted the title of Marshall and he is given complete authority of the war effort working in coordination with the civil-military council that has been established to replace the previous assembly. The military continues to use chemical weapons heavily as the organized withdrawal from northern France goes on. Everything from mustard to nerve gas is used, and even anthrax is used. All refugees that can head south. The forces that withdraw behind the Loires are split into two groups the force that will hold the river and the other to hold off any potential attacks from the western coast. As conscription grows all able bodies who do not work in industry or in scientific research are given military training and uniform to either serve in the army or in paramilitaries. The French forces swell to 1.6 million (including the British, American, Dutch, and German troops that managed to reach French Command) on mainland Europe. With these numbers the forces are split into the Alps Command, the South Command and the Loire command all aimed at keeping the French south and centre protected. More of the AMX Rhino are produced as they prove far more efficient at damaging enemy armor then the AMX 30. The Air force has mixed results as they lob round after round of munitions at the enemy forces. Some pilots in an effort to slow down enemy advances carry out kamikaze strikes on the enemy knowing full well they will not survive. Mass production of weaponry continues and development of experimental weaponry begins as the French command hopes some of the new weaspons they have been developing will prove useful. Technological reseearch continues as the VTOL tech is research and efforts to apply it to the air force, in secret development of a low yield nuclear bomb begins (neutron bomb) after recent advances in nuclear tech prove that such a weapon could be useful as it would not have the lingering effects of the atom bomb. Research into bio-engineering also see major strides and genetic munipulation is looked at with particular interest, and drugs that could enhance military performance. Robotics and telecommunications are focused on heavily as the scientists in France work day in and out to find the secrets of the walkers and other bits of alien tech. Bits of the exoskeletons, and weapons taking from some murdered enemies are taking in for research as well, the bodies of enemy aliens are dissected with out discrimination to understnad more about their biology. All enemies disarmed though few are shot on the spot with the exception of a few who are kept in seclusion ot be tortured and to study the language. Efforts to decipher the enemy language go into over drive as the ruins are explored further to find other bits of tech. In the North African Departments the 400,000 strong armed force with another 200,000 to 300,000 paramilitary and union forces ( not organized into the army itself but as groups to fight along it). The fight desperately to hold onto the coastline of algeria and tunisia all but abandoning Libya due to it being to far spread. Working in coordination with the air force and navy non stop strikes on enemy positions are made and the fortification of Algiers, Bone, Oran, and Tunis continue. Since much of the coastline is not urban the forces are a lot more liberal in the usage of nuclear weapons launching volleys of artillery based tactical nukes at the enemy forces and launching a single ten kt thermonuclear bomb at a large concentration of alien forces. Meanwhile, a lot of the infrastructure from the coast is withdrawn farther inland along with refugees to continue the war from the desert capitals near the ruins and a lot of the country's mineral deposits. Exploitation of North Africa's agriculture continues as well to supply food for the rest of the country that has been hit harder. Mechanization of agricultural exploitation is slowly implomented in an attempt to free up hands for service, same goes on in the industrial sector.more armor, jets, and general machinery for war is produced in mass. Kenetic tech is further developed based on the enemy's weaponry, along with electro-magnetic research, efforts to develop a more sophisticated emp weapon begin and countermeasures to such a weapon. The French also come out with the Dasault Rafale a multi role jet fighter, efforts to develop better technology for the air force continues as it is seen as key to keeping the war going. The French propose that the Italians and Swiss governments help in creating a single military command structure in the Alps and turn the Alps into an unpenetrable stronghold. All refugees are taking in and those who can serve are put into service or into the industrial or agricultural sectors, while scientists are required to help with research and development. The navy undergoes expansion as more ships are required for the war efforts, and the French navy continues to attack alien forces on the coasts of South France and North Africa, while using all the available ports to refuel, the main goal to keep the coasts clear for continued lines of communication and supply lines between the two land masses remains the primary objective and close cooperation with the air force and ground troops remains the best way of dealing with the enemy's overwhelming fire power. Efforts to coordinate French naval forces with other European navies begin particularly Italy and Spain as it is seen as of the utmost importance to secure a common navy to fight the enemy. Fortification of the Pyrenees begin as it is unknown how the Spanish fair in their war so far. Efforts to protect the shara region grow as well as locals are armed and sent into to patrol the borders of French territory, and outposts are set up throughout the region to act as a communication line. Plans to launch a massive offensive aimed at the Rhine aimed at a pinser movement. Efforts to strip the ruins of all their worth begin as the artifacts and research are taking to the military strongholds in Algeria. 
    • Polish Dip: We ask France for help in creating a Polish nuke.
  • Because of alien invasion, Poland joined NATO. Created defenses. Capital is temporarily transferred to the south, in Krakow. Economy reconstructed on military lines.
  • Republic of the Philippines (puppet regime): The former government is dissolved and replaced by a puppet government, headed by the former President Elisabeth Bayabos. The Philippine economy is re-oriented to energy, mining, and agricultural industries to fit the interests of the occupiers. High commodity prices saves the Philippine economy from economic shambles that are affecting the rest of the world. The rapid growth of the industrial sector draws millions of labourers into urban areas. The government introduces modern technologies into newly built or outdated facilities at a rapid pace, some facilities are equipped with automation systems to boost worker productivity. Inflation is controlled by a conservative monetary policy and tight fiscal measures. The Philippine puppet regime hesitantly severs diplomatic and economic ties with the rest of the world. Many forms of media become censored and replaced by propaganda. Pro-independence protests are suppressed and all opposition are sent to labor camps (though they still have worker rights). Meanwhile, several linguists try to decipher their new occupier’s unintelligible language. The Philippine puppet regime participates on the side of the invaders, invading Taiwan, Borneo, Indonesia, and several Pacific islands.
  • Romania: We declare martial law and reinforce our coastline, especially the Southern, unprotected part and fortify our main port Constanta, the largest port on the Black Sea. We send 50,000 troops to Central Europe to help the governments there and 100,000 troops to the Balkans. We begin building war ships based on the ones in the military base of France. Polish and Yugoslavian refugees are welcomed and put to work in order to ensure the survival of Europe. We produce uranium, steel, crops and oil en masse for the war effort. We ask the USSR for support in the liberation of Istanbul, with the possibility to nuke it with a Hiroshima-sized bomb.
  • Commonwealth of Australia
    • ​Australia: After learning of the attacks around the world, the Australian government quickly enacts martial law and conscription, bolstering the country's laughably low armed forces. As a result of our massive coastline, only areas in and around major cities are fortified to withstand the extraterrestrial threat. Railways are built in the interior of the country and the government relocates to Tasmania. Munitions factories and other military industries continue to produce weapons and vehicles in order to give Australia meaningful means of resistance. Major industries also relocate to the interior to avoid easy destruction. We open our borders to all refugees from Asia, with the exception of anyone coming from the Philippines, as the government calls them 'traitors to the human race'. A shoot-on-sight policy is enacted on all Filipinos attempting to enter the country, or on all vessels with the Philippine Flag. We offer the United States, France, the United Kingdom, and the Federation access of our naval bases, facilities, airstrips, and military installations to reclaim the areas invaded by the aliens.
    • New Zealand: The gap between our two major islands is fortified with ships. Martial law and conscription enacted, bringing us 50,000 soldiers. Coastal areas are fortified.
    • The United Kingdom: We continue the liberation of Great Britain (mod, please make algo for this) and aiding the French and Germans by surrounding the Netherland coast. We are unable to move troops to British Borneo but trust the Malayan army will be able to secure the area. We offer them 30,000 troops in British Borneo to aid the Malayan army. We state our hatred for the Philippines due to their reckless actions and suggest to the other European powers that all Filipinos over the age of 18, regardless of their gender, must joined the united armed forces in Central Europe. We give Ethiopia South Sudan and Uganda as protectorates for the duration of the war since they are the only ones capable of reaching these areas now. The North Sudan will have its own independent fighting force and be responsible for its own conscription. All capable men in the United Kingdom will be evaluated and drafted depending on their condition. All women (excluding those with children ages zero to 15) will work in factories and help develop new war equipment.
  • Federation of the Levant: The Levant has the privilege of not being attacked yet, but we do not intend to wait for it. The government is moved to a military base near Mount Meron. The ten nuclear weapons we have right now are prepared to launch at any second, and construction of three more starts, with lots of the Levantine economy pushed into it. Everything not related to the War of Judgment, as some religious people are calling it, is ignored as the entirety of the economy is focused on defending the Levant. All men and women 15 years and older are armed and trained. The navy is prepared and focused fully on defense, in particular on defending the Dead Sea Canal. Three million of the eight million large population is now armed. Levatine scientists begin looking for the source of the invaders, the heart of them, seeking to send a full nuclear force to destroy it. Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Beirut, Damascus and Aleppo are all tuened into military bases. All population in major cities leaves for the mountains to hide, while the military population defends those cities which are now practiczally forts. The Levant, after hearing of the Filipino treachery, SECRETLY orders the Mossad to capture the Filipino president and take him to the Mount Meron Base. (I ASK THE MODS TO RNG THIS)
    • ​Mossad can't get out of the Middle East atm - Nate
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation suffering intensely from the invasion is unable to dislodge the enemy forces from Rio De Janeiro. President Gonzales deferring control of the attack to the combined arms general Jan Paul Lehman another prominent German-Federation Citizen. General Lehman taking extreme measures launches a massive offensive against the Aliens in Rio opening up the city with intense shelling and missile usage. The Federation forces make it to the City center but the offensive falters out. This, however, leads to the organized evacuation of the City of Rio and its surrounding suburbs with massive evacuations occurring managing to pull nearly 800,000 people out of the city. The Remainder of Rios' Citizens are presumed dead as civilian bodies litter the street of the city. The Federation after losing nearly 200,000 men in the assault is unable to hold the offensive forward and General Lehman falls back leaving a distress call in the center of the city attempting to draw many alien forces to it. The aliens in some capacity take the bait and dubiously launches two tactical nuclear missiles at the city incinerating or destroying multiple concentrations but also causing massive collateral damage to the city. President Gonzales addresses the public in light of this nuclear attack on the aliens saying its a necessary evil to win this war and retake our land but promises to limit more usage of these weapons. Federation citizens while seemingly wishing ot protest seem to understand how dire the situation is and many beginenlisting and many unemployed or lesser employed peoples begin going to factories as the Federations year long mobilization has now come to a head. Factories produce tanks, upgraded IFV's and APC's new aircraft F-20 Blackhawk (F-15 equivalent) the A-15 Cobra (A-10 equivalent) ammunition, guns, nearly everything is produced prolificly in some cases even on fire, as some of Rio's factories remain open on the front lines. All the Federations generals with a massive domestic mobilized force of nearly 3.5 million (roughly three million comes from pre-existing military force) begin a massive counterattack across the country devoting nearly ine million to retaking Northern Brazil another 800,000 to pushing the Aliens off the Andean coast. In Colombia general Almagro secures a highway supply route using the amazons highway and links up with the Capital. He is given another one million troops to commit to colombia putting the effective force at 1.2 million leaving one million men ready to reinforce at will. The Federations military capacity increases dramatically as it attempts to just drown the Aliens forces in manpower and equipment expected fully to field nearly five million soldiers by the end of next year. The Federation in particular begins upgrading much of its militaries infantry capabilities giving them new uniforms and protective and useful gear (think 1990's US troops). The Federation announces the survival of Dr Langford to the United States. The Federation navy is repurposed and begins a massive assault on the aliens in South Africa with nearly 1500 aircraft and 50,000 marines reinforcing 150,000 troops already in South Africa surrounding the Alien force and commiting to its complete destruction. Ignoring collateral damage the massive fleet of nearly 300 warships off the coast of Cape town and other landing sites bombards the aliens in the cities ruthlessly with cannon and missile fire as well as intense aerial bombardment. This intense bombardment puts the alien forces down in South Africa and nearly 5000 prisoners are taken out of a force of nearly 70,000 that landed. The destruction of a landing force is a great morale victory but after gaining access to landing Data the Federation learns the troop deployments of the alien forces world wide tries relaying the information.

1971.5

Seeing the dire situation, the Austrian, Swiss and Hungarian governments all join in the united defense of Europe with the Swiss and Austrians agreeing to open up their Alpine territories to militarization. Just hours after announcing their joining of Europes defense Hungary is hit by troops coming out of Yugoslavia which has suffered tremendous casualties and has devolved into scattered army units attempting to fight for survival. In Western Europe, Spain sees dominating losses along its Medditerrenean coast as nearly ther entire Catalan coast and the coastal islands are seized. France manages to recover some territory in the north particularly around its industrial centers and resource centers as well as some minor gains on the Rhine. However, the offensives are not expected to hold and many advisors speak up about moving as much industry as possible. Radio broadcasts in the Netherlands report of mass killings occuring and a refugee crisis begins to unfold as hundreds of thousands of Netherlander citizens attempt to flee to Germany and France.

In Eastern Europe Poland begins to come overrun as its army units are unable to put up an effective defense. Warsaw in particular is surrounded as Alien forces shell the city relentlessly. The only word coming from the Invaders is spoken in perfect clear Polish "Surrender or Die". The USSR on the other hand with the loss of Sevastapol realizes the grave threat coming at it, and re-organizing much of its armed forces around a flexible eastern Defense and a massive assault on the Invaders around the Ukraine and Crimea with nearly 2.5 million men available for counteroffensives.

In Asia, Japan suffers the loss of nearly the entire northern half of the Islands and Tokyo is put under extreme seige as the Alien forces begin a massive assault on the remainder of Free Japan. The Chinese continue to suffer extreme losses as well with an attempt to link up with Korean forces ending in disaster with Korea becoming an occupied state of the Invaders. China begins mobilizing nearly five million men in order to fight the invasion using whatever means necessary. India fares no better as it Loses New Delhi and the entire North India front collapses sending millions of refugees south. Indochina sees massive overrunning as well.

Oceania sees some of its more concentrated attacks as alien forces land in Sumatra and Java only to face battle hardened and determined Indonesian soldiers fresh off the Indonesian civil war. Their usage of top tier Federation equipment and naval forces prove a tough force to break as the intitial attack on Jakarta leave the aliens surprised by the tenacity and viciousness of the defense in the face of overwhelming casualties. Australia sees the first invasions in Darwin which is overrun in less than an hour. The Commonwealth begins defensive operations in an attempt to prevent further advances but faces a massive invasion force.

In the Americas, contact between the Federation, Mexico, and the United states manages to keep each nation updated on their struggles. The Nuclear attacks on Texas, Northern Mexico, and Rio stall out the invaders and the mass mobilizations of the three Great Powers brings great difficulty to the Aliens as they face off against numbers greater than or equal to their own. Their dismissivness of Naval units begins to wear off as their effectiveness against them begins to shift in regards to destroying ships whenever found.

In Africa much of the continent is secured with the West African Federation and multiple French Union states falling south of the Sahara leaving only Angola, South Africa and Ethiopia free from alien control. North Africa sees a total stall out of alien offensive as a mass use of Nukes in North Africa surprises them heavily.

The Middle East becomes the first to encounter the Invaders true invasion ships, large warships that land and disgourge thousands upon thousands of troops bringing an army of nearly one million to Yemen alone forcing the Arab states to face a vastly superior enemy with the potential to deploy millions of troops

Across the world Alien ships begin to land most notably in San Francisco, Boston, Normandy, Hamburg, Danzig, Sevestapol, Fortaleza, and Recife, Bogota, Beijing, Taiwan, Northern Japan, and many more in Africa of an unspecified amount. Information ganed from a successful Federation attack in South Africa leads many analysts to beleive that upwards of 25 million alien troops could be geared toward this invasion with the majority to land in areas of their central control which experts are yet to be able to determine.

  • United States: Mere hours ahead of the invasion, the vice president and most of congress evacuates Washington and reconvenes in Cheyenne, Wyoming, but decides not to retreat completely underground. The military does, however, and now operates out of Cheyenne Mountain. The President and United Nations are relocated to the USS Missouri in the central Atlantic. Military fortifications are set up on the Nevada and Appalatian Mountains, utilizing the high ground to hault the invaders The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. As soon as the invaders in Alaska or Vancouver are confirmed to be in an isolated area, standing orders are to send two (2) tactical nuclear missiles against them. Similar standing orders are in place for other locations in the western hemisphere. Seeing the effectiveness of nuclear weapons in the desert, two tactile nuclear missiles are launched at the ships stationed above San Francisco and Boston. Additionally, five B53 fusion bombs are launched at the space fleet in orbit. The M1 Abrams tank is developed and distributed to all fronts to improve their tactics. Similarly, new nuclear carriers are launched from New Orleans and Houston to join the Atlantic navy.The NSA stationed in Cheyenne are commissioned to decode the signals intercepted from the aliens. Dr. Ernest Langford, representing the National Geographic Society, provides linguistic information from the artifacts thus far as a base to translate the signals. Ernest is pleased to know his wife is still alive. The troops in Germany pull out and submit to leadership of France, the troops in Romania similarly submit to leadership to Romania. All local authorites and rangers in the southwest are drafted into local militias, utilizing knowledge of the local landscape.The 900,000 troops in central Florida and Alabama close in to capture Miami and Jacksonville, backed by an amphibious landing of 300,000 troops convoyed from the Virgin Islands. The coalition navies in the Caribbean work to clean it out of invader ships. The 900,000 troops in Texas pushes back the inavders back into northern Mexico. A two-way attack is planned with the Mexican government to force the invaders onto the mountains of central Mexico. Seeing the success of holding New York City, much of the Atlantic navy turns south to launch counterinvasions against Manhattan and the mainland, retaking the city. The 600,000 troops cross the northern Apalachians and help retake New York City. The Pacific navy similarly launches a concentrated attack on San Francisco. An invasion of 400,000 troops crosses the Sierra Nevada and helps reclaim San Francisco.
  • West African Federation: We continue to expand military and infrastructure, due to economy out of sight. Meanwhile, we're pretty concern about the aliens and we hope some of our troops to destroy it, which Lagos could be evacuated during this peroid. The population is rising and some of peacekeepers have to defend the city as soon as tensions going to grow.
  • The United Kingdom: Over the next few months special resources are mined en masse. We realise our horrible location and know that if we stay there any longer we could easily be overthrown. So over the next six months the British population (who are not serving in the military; excluding 15 million who fled to the Republic of Ireland) are moved into Central Europe (France, Germany, Switzerland) via the small amount of land still under British control in the Netherlands and the Scandinavian countries. Priceless British arefacts such as the Crown Jewels and nuclear missiles are taken into Central Europe as well and master archetects study the Buckingham Palace so that if it destroyed we would be able to (hopefully) rebuild it once the war is over. Once all the citizens were relocated most of the British army (now around 3.5 million, including the air force and navy) moved into Central Europe and half were divided between the French German and Swiss fronts while 500,000 remained in Great Britain. The army in Great Britain faked a surrender to the enemy and begin a massive guerrilla campaign as well as launched three more tactical nuclear missiles on the enemy. The results of these attacks are unknown since we lost communications with the units in early September. Many citizens complain about the move but quiet down when the Prime Minister reminds them of how many lives could of been lost if they had stayed. We ask the Republic of Ireland to do the same before they are destroyed.  The army is raised to 3.5 Million troops. British arefacts are moved into Central Europe with approximately six million refugees. We keep in line with French Polisies and make it so that all refugees, depending on their age, will join the United Forces or war industries in Central Europe. Nearly two million of our troops raid the coast of Europe, half in Northern France and half in the Netherlands. Keep in line with our Green Project British scientists work tirelessly to find a long lasting greener source of fuel, especially since most of the global oil reserves are occupied at the moment. The West Coast of the UK is turned into a war zone with Wales being one of the major bases of operations for the Navy and London being the base for the Air Force. The PM announces that once our land is free of alien scum we will aid Northern Europe and Italy.
    • As much as that would be interesting it is not possible just because it would not be managable logisticly. With Blood and Iron (talk) 21:00, November 18, 2015 (UTC)
    • Would I be able to do it over multiple turns or is it simply implausible? Can I at least begin moving citizens to Central Europe as refugees and to help the French, Germans and Swiss? Also was my counterattack from my last turn successful?
    • Only Feud can tell you if it was successful and you can send materials and refugees, of course. Send them to western France as I have begun pulling out of northern France and have begun fortrying the more defensible interior of France. With Blood and Iron (talk) 21:49, November 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • Federation of the Levant: The 13 nuclear weapons we have right now are prepared to launch at any second, and construction ends to fund the wall. Construction of a wall spanning from the Mediterranean Sea to Jerusalem is built. This wall is to be 45 metres tall and 20 metres thick with built in cannons to fire at any alien in sight. Aleppo is abandoned for this project with 100 men staying there to report if any aliens are sighted in the North, but also a large amount of explosives are spread around the city, which will be detonated should the invaders take the city. The entirety of the Levantine economy is pushed into it. The decision is made to keep 1000 men in Tel Aviv and guard it mostly with ships.
  • Kurdistan: Decides to launch a massive counter offensive against the invaders Adana, deploying eight corps totalling 400,000 troops, including two armoured divisions. The troops, in conjunction with Turkish forces, launch a massive armoured offensive to cut Adana off from the coast, before surrounding it and launching a massive artillery barrage, including thousands of gas shells, against the city. Kurdish and Turkish infantry then attack the city, fighting house to house behind curtain barrages of artillery to minimize casualties. Meanwhile, with European nations having shared nuclear technology, an Assyrian force of 50,000 is deployed to assist European forces and a desperate nuclear program is enacted, with numerous plutonium-enrichment facilities put into action. Fortunately, with Britain having shared one of their warheads, a nuke is available for use if necessary, and efforts focus on producing two more Hiroshima-size bombs for next year. All industry is consolidated in mountainous areas and a massive trench line is built with conscripted labour to defend the Arabian border and the Euphrates Delta.
  • France: 'With the successful counter-offense led by General Helie de Saint Marc the forces retaking Strausborg, Metz and parts of the German Rhine begin a massive effort to bring all the industry to the Alps where in cooperation with German, Austrian and Swiss governments a large stronghold and industrial region is being developed. All the refugees who can be taken are taken and every one in four is drafted as a condition for the rest to be accepted, while all others are distributed amongst the different industries and agriculture to provide supplies and food. Along with industry more bodies and enemy equipment is brought back in an attempt to further investigate the alien invaders. The Alps, Rhone, Loire defense lines are completed, however, more equipment and arms are sent. To close the gap between the rivers a large military wall and trench line is started and along the Loire to the Alps. More walls are planned along the weat coast south of the Loire River to act as a strong defense against potential alien invasions from normandy where a large amount of aliens have amassed. The new defensive line planned to stretch from the West Atlantic coast all the way into the Alps is dubbed project Europa. All the resources and industry that can taking from Northern France still under French control is along with art, historical documents and research. As they withdraw they also pull employ scorched earth after all civilians and anything of value is taking. The defense lines in Central France and the Alps are fortified with heavy artillery and naval batteries to further improve the fire power of the lines and make up for the somewhat smaller armed forces of Europe. Meanwhile, in the south, the efforts to mope up whats left of the aliens in Southern France goes on and plans to make a push into Northern Italy are made to aid the Italians who are fighting for their life and secure Italy's industrial north for the war effort. 500,000 troops are readied for the offense made up of varied European forces - mainly German, French and Italians. Armed with the lasted of French equipment which is shared with the rest of the European powers coordinating with France. In North Africa the fortifications of the walled settlements are augmented to improve protection of the industrial areas, and more fortified positions are set up throughout the Algerian and Mali Desert as the ruins as stripped of all their value. Continued concentration of firepower is applied to the enemy's remaining strongholds on the North African coast. Meanwhile, efforts to turn the western Mediterrean Sea into a French lake begin as Tunis is turned into a major control point for the French Navy which is now moving from ponit to point in French controlled waters at random to avoid being hit by the enemy. The Italian island of sardinia is seized temporarily to further secure France's naval capacity and deny the aliens accesss to the island. Mass industrial production continues particularly tanks, apcs, missiles, and aircrafts. Meanwhile, efforts to develop the VTOL tech continue with a first prototype the dassault faucon showing great promise, along with advanced stealth and tellecommunications tech. Improved kinetic and laser tech is further developed highlighting the improvements discovered from the enemy's equipment. Development of common equipment for soldiers is made and improved kevlar is made along with improved optics in their helmets, the new armor is distributed in mass. Advanced radar and satellite technology is further developed based on what is secured and computing helps decipher parts of the tech being investigated. Developments in fusion tech are made with the new knowledged gained as well and efforts to develop a sustainable source of fusion energy begin. improved ceramic armor made from modified metals are applied ot the tanks and aocs which also gain upgrades in their barrels and engines due to mechanical tweaks made with new knowledge from the mechs seized from the enemy. The newest EMP devices are developed, and countermeasures for them are also put into production. Production of thermobaric bombs begins in large amounts as they are seen as a potential replacement for nukes. 'The research into the enemy's biology reveal unprecedented genetic and biological augmentations which stun French biologists and doctors, while many of the adjustments are explanable they are things that were previously deemed unethical, much of the findings are studied by the military and it is decided that attempts to synthesis these augmentations are started in the hopes of determining if they have any weaknesses and if they can be applied to humans. All other research continues in mechanical engineering, aeronautics and general knowledge as well. Mass bombing and artillery volleys continue against enemy forces in the final parts of the year, and the Italian offense is launch with massive support from French and European armor and air forces and the navy. The efforts are to relieve Italians defending Milan, Genoa and Turin, in a pinser movement from both the north out of the Swiss Alps and the west from the French Alps. Fortification of the Pyrenees continue as efforts to communicate with the Spanish government are made to get them to cooperate with the defense of Europe. More raids on enemy lines in Africa are made but nothing serious as the defense of French Africa is prioritized but refugees are taking in and those who make it are put either into refugee camps, into military service, or into positions inthe industry and agriculture to provide for the forces in Africa. Paris is fully evacuated along with all industry, books, research, art and the Eiffel Tower in pieces while the city is turned into a death trap as the forces that remain refusing to abandon the capital without a fight prepare for what they assume will be their death. Thanks to heavy drafting and conscription of able-bodied men the French forces between africa and the mainland stand at 2.5 million and they are spread across the defense lines to hold the fortified positions at all cost. Meanwhile, more conscription into the industrial sector and armed forces continue. Large amounts of chemical and emp bombs are launched against the landing force in Normandy to try to damage them plans to launch the nuke are cancelled as it is deemed to much of a risk and might lead to massive retaliation. 
  • Japan: Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio continues to put lots of funding into the military and conscription on a large scale continues. Fighting against the aliens continues. The Self-Defence Forces are ordered to only defend Japan from the aliens; and nothing else. Mitsubishi and Fuji Heavy Industries, with some more funding; continues to build more modern aircraft for the SDF, alongside with the WW2 era places such as the Mitsubishi A6M Zero. Modernisation of the SDF technology and vehicles continues. The new and more modern planes for the SDF take form, such as the Kawasaki C-1 and the Mitsubishi F-1 and these new planes continue construction. The first two of each of these planes are finished on the eleventh month; and are quickly tested. Shortly afterwards, they are straight out sent to join the fight against the aliens. WW2 military technology continues to be used to fight against the aliens; though more modern military technology and weaponry continues to be rolled out as well. A more modern and improved version of the Mitsubishi A6M Zero is planned. More troops are sent to the front-lines of Niigata and Fukushima Prefectures to try to fight the aliens there; and also defend what remains of Tochigi, Ibaraki and Gunma Prefectures. Weaponry begins to be sold to the public for the main purpose of defending from aliens. An evacuation of Tokyo is underway as the scorched earth tactic begins to be used upon the city. Tokyo begins to be set ablaze and levelled in a strategic move. Meanwhile, the government of Japan relocates in secret again, this time to Gifu Prefecture. The landlocked Prefectures of Nara, Shiga, Gifu, and Nagano see heavy fortification; along with other major cities not by the coast such as Kyoto proper. Another several bunch of troops are sent to Yamanashi, Kanagawa, and Saitama Prefectures to be prepared to defend and fight the aliens when they advance. Southern Japan, especially the Okinawa Prefecture and Chūgoku Region are also watched carefully and another part of the SDF remains there to be prepared for when and if the aliens will launch an invasion of Japan via Korea and also if the Philippines tries to invade the Ryukyu Islands.
  • Kingdom of Romania: As we see the world go down, we beginto rethink our strategy. The troops sent to Bulgaria are withdrawn, and as ourmobilization ended, with one million troops being ready to kill aliens. Many people are employed in the war effort. We ask Yugoslavia and Hungary to unite into one government, as we see the dire situation. We ask Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Austria, France, the USSR and Switzerland to help in freeing Yugoslavia. We begin making a draft for Istanbul to be nuked. We secure some Yugoslavian land east of the Tisa and the Morava and ask the country to join us for security reasons. Yugoslavia will be a Romanian protectorate if it agrees. We fortify our border with Yugoslavia, sending the main bulk of forces, 600,000 there. We begin modernizing our cannons and bombs and our Danube navy using blueprints from the French military base. After three months of building and modernizing, we start an attack on Yugoslavia, with 400,000, 50 Danube Fleet ships, cannons and many bombs. We ask the USSR to help Europe in order to establish peace. 
  • Bulgaria is unable to commit large amounts of forces at this moment.

Bulgaria: We force alien forces out of Sofia. We strike north and south, trying to link with Turkey and Romania.

  • Germany: With the situation deteriorating in Poland, German troops are forced to withdraw along with some Polish troops and refugees. These troops are redeployed to the Rhineland and dig in in order to maintain the German link to France. Fearing the fall of Northern Germany the government begins to move industry and people south into Bavaria. Training Camps, factories and temporary housing are built for the displaced and quickly reintegrate them into war production or the military. The draft is expanded to include all men and women aged 18 to 26. German scientists continue to look into the ruins hoping to find anything of value. They also start to look into rebuilding old flying bombs. Finally, we ask the British to use nuclear weapons on the landing sites in Hamburg and Danzig.
    • ​French Dip: In light of the desperate situation the French government proposes that German and French forces unite under a  songlie command and the French propose the provisional establishment of a Franco-German union better administer the resources and political pull that both countries have, but with the exception that both governments will retain some form of autonomy just working as more integrated state to better combat the enemy and provide a united front for Europe to rally around. (This is actually advisable. It will allow us both to increase our manpower substantially and to pool our industries together.
    • German Dip: We agree to a temporary union to better combat the enemy.
    • 'British Diplomacy: We agree to bomb Hamburg and Danzig with Hiroshima-sized nuclear warheads and suggest that the EU combines its nuclear warheads and places them in Central Europe since that is the current base of EU operations.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin the mass production of thermobaric weapons (invented in World War 2) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermobaric_weapon  and researching and creating aircraft similar to the Lockheed AC-140 and use them against alien forces. We use a million troops to protect our capital and stay in the mountains abandoning the coast. This sudden lack of troops will cause chaos in the coast but we realize sacrifices must be made. There will also build small bunkers and fortification to protect against the aliens in the mountain ranges. We will evacuate as many civilians and infrastructure to the mountains. We will immediately try to seize their technology to use it against them. We launch one of our nuclear devices against Barcelona to deny Aliens a base in our nation. We begin our offensives in Valencia, Alicante and Malaga which are near the mountains. We will build more and more fighter jets and planes. We will bomb all alien controlled areas even if they are across borders. We will send an expeditionary force to France to help them in the war. Our army will be used to hold positions along with co-ordinated attacks on different aliens. We will supply guerrilla warfare against the aliens and we request both Portugal and Andorra to form a federation or at least co-ordinated military assaults (MOD).
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies while the dominion forces will move to the mountains for the better positions. There will be offensives to take the coastland to reunite with Spain.
    • French Dip: the French offer instead to coordinate the defense of the Mediterranean Sea to liberate Catalonia, and propose the Spanish join the common European Union defense forces, also the French note that Portugal is already an EU member and Andorra is under French protection so joining the united forces would help combat troops better.
    • Federation Dip: With the recent retaking of Rio and securing of multiple major sea lanes the Federation looks to expand its ability to aid all of earths nations starting in Europe with Spain.
  • Italy: Seeing the desperation of all of Europe, and watching the (seeming) reformation of many of the old empires, the king decides that the most desperate measures must be implemented. The government begins broadcasting propaganda in human-controlled Italian areas promoting the idea of "Nuova Roma" or New Rome. As the king said in a broadcast speech to those in as-yet unoccupied areas, "Rome may have fallen, but the Roman people have not. The people remained, waiting for their time to stand up and fight once more for the glory of Rome. The time has come! The time has come to stand up against this invasion from another world, and to stand atop ours! The time has come to take up the mantle of our ancestors, and reclaim the glory that belongs to the people of this land! The time has come to take Rome back, and to take back the name of Romans!" Nuova Roma (yes, it is now called that) institutes general conscription, and declares a state of total war, placing all civilians not fit for service (even, and perhaps especially, in bunkers) in the army in military production, and those who are in the army. The army begins being restructured to suit this new influx of recruits, with a four-tiered structure developing: The existing command structure is renamed the Patricians, TT's are placed into the new Praetorian corps, professionals into the Army, and conscripts into the Legion, with plans to integrate the Army into the Legion. A large force begins shock assaults against alien strongholds in Venice and Genoa, with 75,000 Praetorians and 100,000 soldiers entering each city, and other contingents of the Legion moving into the Alps in an attempt to prevent alien forces from capturing the mountains. 100,000 soldiers fortify Trento and Bolzano, 100,000 more soldiers move into Austria and another 100,000 soldiers and 15,000 Praetorians into northern Yugoslavia. The official reason given is to fortify the Alps in these countries, but another reason, though somewhat based in paranoia after the surrender of the Philippines, is the fear of a possible re-emergence of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in response to recent displays of what is interpreted as possible Romanian ambition. What nuclear weapons are available are prepared for possible strikes against alien-controlled cities in southern Italy, with military planners refusing to give up hope that Rome can be liberated, especially with continued naval and aerial assaults against aliens there.
    • ​French Dip: The French offer to help liberate North Italy having sent 500,000 troops to hlep liberate it and we request that the Italians join in the militarization of the Alps which is a joint initiative of Europe lead mainly by French efforts.
    • Nuova Roma Dip: As it happens, that is exactly what we are doing.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation having mobilized upwards of four million troops at this point sweeps through southern Argentina sweeping away resistance as the Federation forces begin the push north in two separate fronts in Colombia and northern Brazil. The Federation seeing the landings in Colombia and Northern Brazil by the Aliens with more troops makes a concentrated effort to prevent further landings and movement of alien troops beginning a massive counter offensive north bypassing Rio as the Federation moves nearly two million men north to meet the enemy with the full force of the Federation with upwards of 1500 tanks, and thousands of aircraft including many new aircraft particularly its UD-10 Inca VTOL gunships and the UD-20 Eagle which replace many helicopter roles with noticeable improvements over its predecessors. These VTOL's in general show great promise as the Federation sees their combat effectiveness promise a long lifespan for these aircraft. The Federation now being a year and a half into the war continues to work on deciphering the language on top of figuring out many of the augmentations discovered in the bodies of living troops. These augmentations while unethical the Federation is able to figure utilize serums extracted from the alien's blood to experiment on willing individuals. The Federation begins to utilize its bases in South Africa to house its fleet keeping nearly half ready to fight at any moments notice. The Securing of South Africa as well as the dire situation leads to Federation forces brutally suppressing the Rebellion movement under Nelson Mandela, taking no prisoners killing all who are related to the movement and even executing high ranking members in public. The Federation forces in South Africa boldly co-opt many of the government officials and ruling elite in South Africa essentially stripping the country of its independence as the Federation has moved over 300 ships to their ports, upwards of 200,000 troops specifically to the White dominated cities, designating South Africa as "Area 1" named after the new convention of handling liberated territories. with a population of about 23 million versus the Federations 190 million South Africa is unable to withstand the situation. The recent retaking of whats left of Rio finally opens up a sea route from the Federations industrial core unmolested to various other areas of the Planet. The Federations immediately begins using its naval forces to establish and guard Sea lanes looking to establish a sea lane to Spain. The Federation also managing to retake much of the Andean coast minus colombia establishes a route to Panama with a massive transport and aerial uplift capacity moving hundreds of Thousands of Troops to Panama in preparation to help Mexico. The Federation makes an assessment that the landing forces in Colombia and North Eastern Brazil total somewhere near three million and the Federations opts to contain them for the time being while the Federation fully mobilizes its resources. The Federation announces to any nations who can hear or will listen, to refrain from further nuclear usage as the aliens will be obviously nuclear and may eventually use them on us.
  • Arabia: As the aliens land in totally and utterly ridiculous numbers and we know we stand no chance of winning. Therefore, we offer no resistance and simply order our people to hide while the military fights a low level guerrilla war. We're not surrendering - just allowing them to occupy and hope the main bulk of them move on after attacking us. We keep our forces hidden in mountains and deserts and order attacks only to be carried out if they start trying to use the land or if they catch small patrols.
  • Polish: Troops retreating to Czechoslovakia, with the hope to use the Carpathian and the Silesian Mountains for protection. The Polish government has temporarily moved to Prague. Poland refers to Romania requesting Polish drawings of a nuclear bomb. Poland also asks the rest of the country to not bomb Polish cities, especially Gdansk (do not call it Danzig!).
  • Republic of the Philippines (puppet regime): The former government is dissolved and replaced by a puppet government, headed by the former President Elisabeth Bayabos. The Philippine economy is re-oriented to energy, mining and agricultural industries to fit the interests of the occupiers. High commodity prices saves the Philippine economy from economic shambles that are affecting the rest of the world. The rapid growth of the industrial sector draws millions of labourers into urban areas. The government introduces modern technologies into newly built or outdated facilities at a rapid pace, some facilities are equipped with automation systems to boost worker productivity. Inflation is controlled by a conservative monetary policy and tight fiscal measures. The Philippine puppet regime hesitantly severs diplomatic and economic ties with the rest of the world. Many forms of media become censored and replaced by propaganda. Pro-independence protests are suppressed and all opposition are sent to labor camps (though they still have worker rights). Meanwhile, several linguists try to decipher their new occupier’s unintelligible language. The Philippine puppet regime participates on the side of the invaders, invading Taiwan, Borneo, Indonesia, and several Pacific islands. The army also invades the Ryukyu islands, the gateway to Japan.

1972.0

Mobilization of many of the Worlds Great powers has managed to stall some of the smaller and moderately sized invasion forces across the world. but at Great cost. The Global casualty rate is pushing nearly 30 million and growing exponentially as fallout, famine, and further conflict continue to hurt populations across the world

The Landings in Europe are consolidated as Alien forces take control of the majority of Eastern Europe as well as maintaining large defensive areas in Normandy, Catalonia (site of a newer landing) Hamburg as well as further expansion of controlled territory taking over most of Turkey and Hungary with the Invasion of Romania beginning. French forces are given a reprieve from fighting to assess the damage as mass amounts of infrastructure and multiple cities across the continent have been devastated. In Britain the UK is forced to fight alone as a large scale alien overwatch of aircraft as well as the loss of Scotland and landings of alien ships there bring the British to face a full brunt of a landing on their own near the Scottish Border. The forces in mainland Europe begin re-organizing to adapt to the massive casualties incurred. The French and German militaries to date have suffered the worst casualties with the French having nearly half a million casualties and the Germans with nearly 450,000. Data gained from the Alien loss in South Africa puts the total landing forces in Western Europe at nearly seven million with a good majority focused on breaking the French and German forces (albeit unsuccessfully at this point). The Allied forces attempting to retake Southern Italy make minor gains but are stopped dead cold as the superior alien forces make impresive shows of Strategic skill surrounding and killing 50,000 troops and bringing pinpoint artillery and superior air power prevents the offensive from gaining much more ground also giving the Aliens opportunities for further offensives into Italy. The Italians also suffer another 100,000 casualties as a tactical nuke is dropped on forces near Milan. Paris is lost after a brutal street by street fight culiminating in the death of every soldiers to the last man. In the Final moments the aliens commit massive destruction to the city scouring the final forces from the central portion of the city.

In the Americas, the US retakes New York and good amounts of the East coast but fails to retake Florida, and suffers the loss of much of east coast north of New York as the landing ships touch down. In the West Cost the US is able to cause massive damage on the landing forces with the nuclear weapon only to suffer nearly 250,000 military losses and more than two million civilian losses as three of the invaders tactical nuclear weapons detonate over troop concentrations. The Mexican military links up with Federation Units in Panama and begins to establish a defensive line in Southern Mexico attempting to give a springboard to retake the recently lost Mexico City. The Federation suffers nearly 300,000 casualties as well as in response to the nukings in Rio two Tactical nuclear devices are detonated over the Federation center of advance pushing into Northern Brazil stalling the offensive and opening a large gap in the Federation army. In Colombia the Aliens are not so lucky as a large aerial battle takes place in Bogota leading to the capital ship in Bogota being taken out by massed fire from missiles, AA and cruise missiles. Other ships are destroyed but the aliens begin to pull back to the Coast establishing heavily fortified positions along the Colombian coast.

In Asia the Japanese islands are almost totally conquered as the surprised nation was unable to resist in its entirety. However, significant guerrilla fighters take up resident in Japan and cause major damage to the now occupying forces. The Chinese in response to the landings in China launch the Spring offensive which with some technological gains for the Chinese as well as massive overwhelming the numbers the Chinese make serious pushes north seizing many strategic objectives but losing nearly 950,000 troops in the Process. The Indians stabilize their battle lines and hold onto Southern India and begin building a large defensive line to prevent further offensives. Indochina sees serious resistance fighter movements springing up as the Invaders begins exploiting resources in the Area. The Philippino puppet government is allowed to fight alongside alien forces as they begin to show promise in helping co-opt and rule territory with Taiwan, and Borneo being turned over to their control.

In Oceania Australia begins losing massive amounts of territory (mostly Desert) as the Aliens look to cut the continent in half. The Indonesians on the other hand reveal their development and success of a nuclear weapon using it on an Invader ship crossing the ocean to hit Jakarta destrying the Ship and multiple auxiliaries.

The combined efforts of scientists and Linguists begin deciphering the Alien language with basic vocabulary beginning to show up in translation efforts. The widescale use of augmentation in the Aliens soldiers disgusts many scientists who consider such unethical.

  • Japan: With the fall of Japan; Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio encourages all citizens that are able to take up arms and such to fight against the occupying forces. Weaponry continues to be produced and supplied to the citizens. Despite being occupied, the Self-Defence Forces continues fighting against the aliens as well; using whatever they have left; and in hopes that there can be an opening somewhere to be able to gain ground. The government continues in hiding somewhere in secret in Gifu Prefecture and begins to disguise themselves as normal citizens; especially the royal family. In Okinawa Prefecture, the citizens begin to flee towards Kagoshima Prefecture; though along the way the scorched earth tactic is used, and the cities and towns on the islands are set ablaze and levelled.
  • The United Kingdom: British Airspace is completely shut down preventing any UFO's from flying over the islands. After having retaken Southern England the British army directs all our attention to Scotland. With most of the West of Scotland being completely under invader control we mandate that all Scottish citizens of the UK in Northern and Central Scotland are to evacuate and come to England at once. Major conscription takes place and we gain 890,000 troops. Unfortunately they are forced to use WWIII era weapons for the time being. These troops, along with the 350,000 that were in South England, 30,000 in Wales, and the 50,000 in Northern Ireland, join with the remaining force of 200,000 in Scotland and launch a major offensive. 100,000 are sent to the Republic of Ireland and it is officially declared a protectorate of the United Kingdom. We continue our major retaking of the historic region of Brittany with one million British troops being devoted to the liberation. We ask the Federation to participate in taking back this area as well as the rest of Western France. 12 million Scottish refugees flee to Central Europe and are forced to enlist in the army or aid in the war industries. With the royal family assumed to be dead Prime Minister Edward Heath is declared the Pro Tempore King of England (this is only a title, he still serves as the Prime Minister of the UK).
  • United States: Mere hours ahead of the invasion, the vice president and most of congress evacuates Washington and reconvenes in Cheyenne, Wyoming, but decides not to retreat completely underground. The military does, however, and now operates out of Cheyenne Mountain. The President and United Nations are relocated to the USS Missouri in the central Atlantic. Military fortifications are set up on the Nevada and Appalachian Mountains, utilizing the high ground to halt the invaders The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. As soon as the invaders in Alaska or Vancouver are confirmed to be in an isolated area, standing orders are to send two (2) tactical nuclear missiles against them. Similar standing orders are in place for other locations in the western hemisphere. The M1 Abrams tank is developed and distributed to all fronts to improve their tactics. Similarly, new nuclear carriers are launched from New Orleans and Houston to join the Atlantic navy. NASA and the air force work to discect the invaders' technology, asking for advice from the AI through Catherine Langford, hoping to find a weakness to stop or exploit the invader exoskeletons. The troops in Germany pull out and submit to leadership of France, the troops in Romania similarly submit to leadership to Romania. All local authorities and rangers in the southwest are drafted into local militias, utilizing knowledge of the local landscape. The 1.2 million troops in central Florida fall back to Orlando and prepare for another attack, while the navy closes in to cut off any reinforcements by sea. The 900,000 troops in Texas pushes back the invaders back into northern Mexico. A two-way attack is planned with the Mexican government to force the invaders onto the mountains of central Mexico. The 600,000 troops, under the leadership of General John Abrams, continues to advance along the Northern Appalachians to claim the high ground near northern New England. The navy and military in New York recover from their battle, helping to rebuild the industrial centers of the city and relocate refugees. All the technology used by the invaders in New York is captured and sent to Cheyenne Mountain, Houston, and Area 51. The Pacific navy similarly launches a concentrated attack on San Francisco. An invasion of 400,000 troops crosses the Sierra Nevada and helps reclaim San Francisco.
    • ​US Dip (to the Aliens): After decoding the Invaders' language, Dr. Ernest Langford attempts to negotiate with the extraterrestrials, asking what they want from Earth and why they are attacking.
  • Federation of the Levant: The 13 nuclear weapons we have right now are prepared to launch at any second, and construction ends to fund the wall. Construction of a wall spanning from the Mediterranean Sea to Jerusalem is built. This wall is to be 45 metres tall and 20 metres thick with built in cannons to fire at any alien in sight. Aleppo is abandoned for this project with 100 men staying there to report if any aliens are sighted in the North, but also a large amount of explosives are spread around the city, which will be detonated should the invaders take the city. The entirety of the Levantine economy is pushed into it. The decision is made to keep 1000 men in Tel Aviv and guard it mostly with ships. The Federation, after hearing rumors about invaders speaking perfect Polish, German and French, decides to send a message to them in Hebrew, asking why they are invading, what they want, and how we can convince them to spare humanity.
  • West African Federation: We continue to expand military and economy. More defensive buildings like bunkers and fortresses begin to build. Population slowly grows in Kano and Lagos, while more troops recruit to the military. The tensions look to rise because of alien attacks. Government of West African Federation hopes that this current situation in this world with alien attacks fades away, 
  • USSR: The Union keeps battling the invaders in the beseiged cities. Although they are wary of cooperating with some of the other nations, particularly the western nations, they contribute where they can. What troops can be spared are sent south at Romania's request to help in Istanbul.
  • Nuova Roma: The Legion has been able to equip 150,000 new soldiers with semi-automatic weapons which had been mothballed as the CT began to come into use, though new conscripts skip the lengthy training course in favor of simply being able to shoot roughly accurately and enter combat more quickly. These troops, along with 20,000 Praetorians and around 150 tanks, are sent out to attempt an amphibious assault on Sicily in order to reclaim the island as a possible base for an assault on alien forces in the south. Of the French forces arriving in Italy, half are sent to aid Italian forces in Genoa and half to aid forces in Venice. The country's nuclear arsenal is kept ready, though not launched. Air units begin launching raids on positions in the south in an attempt to delay the invaders.
  • I sent them to help but they are under my command and they are bogged down in North Italy in the Alps region and they aren't leaving for the time being, Sorry, man . With Blood and Iron (talk) 23:57, November 19, 2015 (UTC)
  • OK, I just hadn't known is all. Sorry.
  • I also must ask what is the point of calling yourself the New Roman Empire? You won't be able to conquer anything.
  • I hadn't really specified that it was the Roman Empire, just New Rome. If it had to be extended, it would probably be to New Roman Republic, rather than New Roman Empire.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin the mass production of thermobaric weapons (invented in World War 2) and researching and creating aircraft similar to the Lockheed AC-140 and use them against alien forces. We use a million troops to protect our capital and stay in the mountains abandoning the coast. This sudden lack of troops will cause chaos in the coast but we realize sacrifices must be made. There will also build small bunkers and fortification to protect against the aliens in the mountain ranges. We will evacuate as many civilians and infrastructure to the mountains. We will immediately try to seize their technology to use it against them. We launch one of our nuclear devices against Barcelona to deny Aliens a base in our nation We will send an expeditionary force to France to help them in the war. Our army will be used to hold positions along with co-ordinated attacks on different aliens. We will supply guerrilla warfare against the aliens  and we will co-ordinate efforts with the EU. We also will accept weapons from the Federation. We will launch a mass offensive against Catalonia.
    • Spanish North Africa: Our 50,000 troops will protect the colonies while the dominion forces will move to the mountains for the better positions. There will be offensives to take the coastland to reunite with Spain.
  • France: The fall of Paris is met with tears and weeping across the nation as all French stand together to mourn the souls who perished defending the French Capital. However, this sadness soon turns to anger as the government and pro-war groups use the battle of Paris as a propaganda piece. The 150,000 Frenchmen who died defending the capital are turned into martyrs by the French propaganda machine and the new government message "De sang et Feu nous allon maintenir notre liberte, ne jamais oublier nos freres parisiens, nous sommes tous eguax dans cette lutte" across France can be seen putting an old spin on the French phrase "Liberte, egalite, Fraternite." French forces also become increasingly hostile to the enemy and show even less mercy then before as they refuse to submit to an enemy that would do that to their brothers and to their capitala general attitude of no quarters develops amongst the French and united European forces. With this many more civilians enlist or agree to aid industrial production willingly as the entire nation and indeed all of Europe depends on the united efforts of its people. The militarization of the Swiss and aAustrian Alps continue as more French military hardware is brought into the mountain range and French industry is also brought in.Thanks to the advances in robotics and mechanical engineering, mechanized mining and industrial production grows tenfold helping greatly free up hands for service or for other areas that need manpower. The French high command works in coordination with German, Swiss and Austrian forces to turn the European mountains into an unpenetrable stronghold and the headquarters for a united European war effort. More and more advanced weapons are installed across the mountains and passes are walled off while ridges are turned into bunkers. The Alps line is also pointed to the south with the parts of Italy under allied control being militarized as well as the alpine city of Turin which is turned into a death trap should the alien forces decide to advance on it. Italian refugees are allowed to come into Southern France and into the Swiss Alps but they are required to also serve in the forces or in industrial production. The Loire-Alps Defense line nears completion along with the pyrenees atlantic wall/defnense line as the gaps between the natural defenses are closed off by trench lines and heavily fortified walls similar to those in French North Africa. Naval guns are installed in the walls and within all alpine defnsive areas all capable of firing 70 mm artillery pieces. Depleted Uranium and Tugston rounds are the most common ammo used for these defenses. consciption continues of both French, North African Harkis, and Arabs, along with refugees, bringing the French army up to 3.5 million troops. However, more are drafted and trained in case these numbers prove not enough. The improved AMX Rhino tanks prove a very efficient machine carrying the most recent smoothbore cannons developed by French tech (a step above the OTL Rheinmetall 120 mm cannon) which proves an efficient weapon against the enemy armor. The new VTOL fighter the Dassault Faucon also proves to be a huge benefit to the French forces now on the defense as they are able to hit the enemy quickly and with large firepower before pulling back behind defensive lines followed by overwhelming air strikes carried out by French and European jet bombers and fighters. The French navy continues to maintain the lines of communication between North Africa and South France open and carry out raids on alien defenses in Catalonia, and in occupied Italy whenever possible. Lines of communication with the Spanish and Italian governments are maintained and French tech and weapons are shared with the two European nations that are fighting for their life. The process of integrating the German military into the French military begins in earnest as French communication codes are given to the Germans and French equipment and tech is given to their forces The French request that German officials increase conscription and shift more of their industrial complex into the more defendable Alps. However, troops are sent north into Bavaria to bolster the German defenses. Efforts to prepare more offenses into the occupied Rhineland and into occupied Northern Italy to further secure the defense line. However, it is decided that a completely united force will be needed to have even some success of this. Heavy bombardment of the Alien stronghold in Normandy begins in an effort to thin out their forces and to keep them from making advances as the defensive lines are completed in the Alps and along the Loire River. The defense of North Africa continues as raids on alien held central africa are carried out but without any real commitment as the that would result in thinning the French supply lines there, the Algerian, Libyan, Niger and Mali deserts continue to undergo militarization as more walled strongholds are built to maintain the supply lines and communication lines. Algiers and Bone remain industrial areas and continue supply the growing African divisions. The coasts of French North Africa are outfitted with heavy artillery and naval cannons like those being used in the Alps, and the Loire Wall. The walled settlements are also outfitted with these arms. As the enemy's language is slowly decyphered efforts to break enemy communication codes begin with the help of the newer computer technology being developed thanks to the data collected from the ruins. Leaps in CPU technology are made greatly improving targeting systems for missiles, jet fighters and other weapons systems along with communication systems which are taking full advantage of to coordinate forces and make up for lack of numbers. More developments in nuclear fusion technology are made and emp weapons, counter-measures to radiation and EMP's are worked on in an effort to prepare for the worst as the war goes nuclear. New rifles are also put into development based on enemy munitions and mechanisms, plans to use depleted uranium munition for the new weapon are made. Many efforts to integrate these new countermeasures into the European industrial and military machine begin. All new technology is shared with the other European powers. Sophisticated breathing masks are also retrofitted to the standard French military uniform as the French military becomes more liberal with chemical and biological weapons, opting to not use nukes but other weapons. Development of powerful stimulant drugs begin based on the research of enemy augmentations as French doctors and bio-engineers are tasked to synthesis them for human usage, despite the protests of a few of them, the military is determined to use these developments to improve military fighting capacities, volunteers are secretly recruited for these experiments. decoding of the enemy technology begins in earnest as well with the recent discoveries of about their language, and with the recent developments in telecommunications and computer technology.
    • ​French Dip: The French follow suit with the Americans in demanding to know why the alien race attacked them and have commites such atrocities against humanity.
    • French Dip: the French continue to coordinate with other European forces, and they request that all countries in central Europe that have not yet joined the fight (the Czechs) join in and help protect Europe at all costs.
  • Arabia: Our forces keep their heads low while performing small raids against the aliens if they try to take our resources or if they find small patrols. All the while our people run and hide in the caves and mountains and generally try to avoid being spotted. Most of our civilians try to dig downwards and create hidey holes.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation having mobilized upwards of four million troops at this point sweeps through southern Argentina sweeping away resistance as the Federation forces begin the push north in two separate fronts in Colombia and northern Brazil. The Federation seeing the landings in Colombia and Northern Brazil by the Aliens with more troops makes a concentrated effort to prevent further landings and movement of alien troops beginning a massive counter offensive north bypassing Rio as the Federation moves nearly two million men north to meet the enemy with the full force of the Federation with upwards of 1500 tanks, and thousands of aircraft including many new aircraft particularly its UD-10 Inca VTOL gunships and the UD-20 Eagle which replace many helicopter roles with noticeable improvements over its predecessors. These VTOL's in general show great promise as the Federation sees their combat effectiveness promise a long lifespan for these aircraft. The Federation now being a year and a half into the war continues to work on deciphering the language on top of figuring out many of the augmentations discovered in the bodies of living troops. These augmentations while unethical the Federation is able to figure utilize serums extracted from the alien's blood to experiment on willing individuals. The Federation begins to utilize its bases in South Africa to house its fleet keeping nearly half ready to fight at any moments notice. The Securing of South Africa as well as the dire situation leads to Federation forces brutally suppressing the Rebellion movement under Nelson Mandela, taking no prisoners killing all who are related to the movement and even executing high ranking members in public. The Federation forces in South Africa boldly co-opt many of the government officials and ruling elite in South Africa essentially stripping the country of its independence as the Federation has moved over 300 ships to their ports, upwards of 200,000 troops specifically to the White dominated cities, designating South Africa as "Area 1" named after the new convention of handling liberated territories. with a population of about 23 million versus the Federations 190 million South Africa is unable to withstand the situation. With the detonation of two nuclear weapons over the Federation center, nearly 500,000 troops are rushed with radiation gear to fill the hole using overwhelming fire support to keep the aliens from rushing through and splitting the Federations offensive in half. The use of the new VTOL's is extensive as more of the UD-10 Incas make their appearance being a comparitive match for the Aliens gunships while the new production of aircraft puts the Federation on a disadvantageous but better footing than before with the Aliens The Federations immediately begins using its naval forces to establish and guard Sea lanes looking to establish a sea lane to Spain. The Federation also managing to retake much of the Andean coast minus colombia establishes a route to Panama with a massive transport and aerial uplift capacity moving hundreds of Thousands of Troops to Panama in preparation to help Mexico. The Federation makes an assessment that the landing forces in Colombia and North Eastern Brazil total somewhere near three million and the Federations opts to contain them for the time being while the Federation fully mobilizes its resources. The Federation announces to any nations who can hear or will listen, to refrain from further nuclear usage as the aliens will be obviously nuclear and may eventually use them on us.
  • Kingdom of Romania: As we see the world go down, we begin to rethink our strategy. The troops sent to Bulgaria are withdrawn, and as our mobilization ended. With one million troops being ready to kill aliens, many people are employed in the war effort. We ask Yugoslavia and Hungary to unite into one government, as we see the dire situation. We ask Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Austria, France, the USSR and Switzerland to help in freeing Yugoslavia. We begin making a draft for Istanbul to be nuked. We secure some Yugoslavian land east of the Tisa and the Morava and ask the country to join us for security reasons. Yugoslavia will be a Romanian protectorate if it agrees. We fortify our border with Yugoslavia, sending the main bulk of forces, 600,000 there. We begin modernizing our cannons and bombs and our Danube navy using blueprints from the French military base. After three months of building and modernizing, we start an attack on Yugoslavia, with 400,000, 50 Danube Fleet ships, cannons and many bombs. We ask the USSR to help Europe in order to establish peace. Seeing an invasion, the 200,000 troops left in the west of Romania uses the same strategy as the Federation in South Africa. We begin the Carpathian fortress and 300,000 troops are sent to intercept the aliens.

1972.5

A Surprise Invasion of Egypt takes much of the Egpytian military off guard as hundreds of thousands die in quick succession to the invasion. The Invasion force immediately turns west and begins to overrun libya coming in sight of the Tunisian border in just a few short weeks. The French suffer atrocious casualties holding them at the border of Tunisia but the forces are stopped nontheless leaving nearly 400,000 dead and the French forces in Tunis a shell of its former self. East Africa sees further advances of the aliens taking much of the eastern part of the continent but meeting a well armed ethiopian force in Kenya. Much of Sub Saharan africa falls with the Aliens beginning to shell the West African Federation into submission

In Europe, the Invaders turns their attention towards breaking the French armies and launch a massive assault with nearly 1.5 million troops and overwhelming air support using their Larger ships to keep many French aircraft out of the skies. The same issue comes about in Germany with a major offensive occuring to Take Berlin. Eastern Europe comes under the solidified occupation of the Invaders who begins to consolidate their hold. The Total Alien strength in Western Europe is put at a solid seven million with air superiority being close to their potential achievement. The UK suffers brutal casualties as their foray into scotland is unsuccessful forcing them onto the defensive

In the Americas the Invaders make a concentrated assault into the hole where they dropped nuclear devices in the Federation lines starting a pitched battle as nearly 2.5 million Federation troops clash with 1.3 million invaders unable to link up with the rest of their forces in the Failing Colombia. The attack looks to be one of desperation as the rapid advancements in technology as well as tenacity of the South American defenders has put their commanders on the backpedal in an attempt to re-assess the situation. The United States is under similar scrutiny as the US and Mexican forces successfully wipe out an Alien force in Northern Mexico leaving the other alien force stranded outside of San Antonio, this force immediately beelines to the coast meeting up with a group of ships that was on its way to Cuba reinforcing them and taking control of Galveston/Houston. Mexican forces begin showing promise in liberating Mexico city as a reorganized Mexican military turns much of the southern parts of the empire into a massive safe zone. The Boston offensive fails as the US and Invader forces get stuck in a long drawn out battle also suffering from one of the worst Winters in recent memory.

In Asia the Japanese get their footing back securing Tokyo again as well as some surrounding territory but failing to make more gains than this. Occupied Korea begins to churn out resources for the invaders as well as one of the first instances of occupied human forces being used as military force for the Invaders with Korean and alien troops being used to make offensives against China. organizes resistance occurs in Indochina as the opressed peoples attempt to cause massive infrastructural damage to prevent usage. India begins to make pushes to retake Bengal but also releases a death toll which currently stands at nearly 30 million and counting.

Oceania sees brutal fighting as Indonesian forces make concentrated attacks to hold onto their islands and even land on Borneo to retake the island. The Commonwealth uses its navy to protect its major coastal cities but loses much of Interior Australia to the Invading forces

The Aliens true purpose has come to light with standing orders to "Destroy the ancient enemy, and colonize their Ashes".

  • West African Federation: After aliens taking the western part of Africa, West African Federation declares an evacuation in all cities of our country. Our troops normally begin to recruit as they planned to hunt aliens to stop attacking our nation. Tensions could rise even again and chaos to fall apart, as this worries by the Government about the aliens to shell West African Federation to submission. We continue to expand military and economy.
  • Democratic Republic of Yugoslavia: We would like a Union with Romania, this Union will be called the Romania-Yugoslavian Kingdom and its capital will be Bucherest. This will be played by AM (I'm not going to play until the alien invasion is over). After the alien invasion is defeated we will distorm the union as Romania gets a bit of Serbia, and new Yugoslavian nations will be created: Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro), Bosnia, Macedonia, Croatia and Slovenia. They will be kept in the Yugoslavian Union which means that they have economic powers. If Romania doesn't agree to our deal then we'll surrender as a puppet state. We build our military. We try to raise the biggest army we can - 500,000. We let women, men and even children fight for our country.
  • The United Kingdom: French citizens in the UK mourn at the loss of Paris. The King/PM, being a major fan of H.G. Wells, tells British scientists to contain the common cold and diseases that are currently being examined and turn them into chemical weapons because that is how the aliens were defeated in War of the Worlds. Within four months the first batch of these weapons are created and sent to the border of Scotland and London. A new unit of 300,000 able-bodied men use these devices on the aliens while wearing protective gear. Mass production of these weapons begins. We send information to Central Europe stating that these devices could help to end the war. Six million Scottish refugees flee to Scandinavia. We recall 500,000 of our troops that were in Northern Europe and leave the rest (500,000) to be managed by the French, German and Nuova Roman governments. We ask the Federation to aid in the liberation of Europe and possibly Northern Africa. (More later)
  • United States: Mere hours ahead of the invasion, the vice president and most of congress evacuates Washington and reconvenes in Cheyenne, Wyoming but decides not to retreat completely underground. The military does, however, and now operates out of Cheyenne Mountain. The President and United Nations are relocated to the USS Missouri in the central Atlantic. Military fortifications are set up on the Nevada and Appalachian Mountains, utilizing the high ground to halt the invaders The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. As soon as the invaders in Alaska or Vancouver are confirmed to be in an isolated area, standing orders are to send two (2) tactical nuclear missiles against them. Similar standing orders are in place for other locations in the western hemisphere. The M1 Abrams tank is developed and distributed to all fronts to improve their tactics. Similarly, new nuclear carriers are launched from New Orleans and Houston to join the Atlantic navy. An engineer in Cheyenne has developed a small weapon that can temporarily distrupt the bioengineering used by the Invaders, known as a "Neuralphaser". The production of this weapon is seen as the first step to closing the gap between human and invader technology. All local authorities and rangers in the southwest are drafted into local militias, utilizing knowledge of the local landscape. The navy and military in New York recover from their battle, helping to rebuild the industrial centers of the city and relocate refugees. All the technology used by the invaders in New York is captured and sent to Cheyenne Mountain, Houston, and Area 51. The 1.2 million troops in central Florida close in for another attack to finally claim the entire south. The troops in Texas split into two groups, with 300,000 pushing further into Mexico to help liberate Mexico City, and 800,000 sent to defend Houston, backed by air force and naval defenses already there. John Abrams reorganizes the military to begin a second attack on Boston, this time working to first claim the Hill of Dorchester and mount heavy artillary there (including the newly-designed M270 MLR System). Reinforcements come up from New York by land and sea, mounting a total force there of 800,000.  Combined naval and military foces continue to work at securing central California. The US government looks towards combining a united defense of North America against the Invaders, similar to Europe, by pooling the resources of the US, Canada, and Mexico.
    • ​US Dip (to the Aliens): Without authority from the US military, who consider negotiation impractical, Dr. Ernest Langford continues to try to reason with the extraterrestrials. He explains how, according to the most advaced Earth anthropology, there is no such civilization in Earth's past as the Invaders describe, and if there was (in light of certain recent discoveries), humans have no relationship with them.
  • Japan: Shortly after managing to gain ground back in Tokyo and surrounding areas, the Self-Defence Forces begin to consolidate in Yokohama and Kawasaki, which is right next door to Tokyo. Tokyo itself is also heavily secured and guarded; and while parts of the city is rebuilt, most of it is left alone and whatever is salvageable begins to be used to help build some industry again. Other surrounding areas of Tokyo such as Chiba city (across the bay from Tokyo), Matsudo (Chiba Prefecture), and Sagamihara (Kanagawa Prefecture) also see an increase in fortification along with the industry being able to produce more military supplies and such. Modernisation of the military continues, with planes like the Kawasaki C-1 and the Mitsubishi F-1 being build regularly now, and WW2 technology is mostly being replaced with more modern ones. Weaponry continues to be produced and supplied to the citizens. Fighting against the aliens continues; and plans are made to push them out of Kantō Region as a primary goal; and from there will plan their way to liberate the rest of Japan. The government continues hiding somewhere in secret in Gifu Prefecture for the time being; while the SDF begin to operate out of Yokohama. Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio still encourages any citizens in occupied areas that are able to take up arms and such to fight against the occupying forces. Conscription on a large scale continues. Meanwhile, automated industry begins to be implemented to be able to produce some things easier.
  • France:' The French defenses at the Alps-Loire Line nuked down as the alien onslaught hits it with full force. In part thanks to the fact that extensive efforts have been made to start closing the technological gap between the French and the aliens and also thanks to the stout courage of the French and European forces and thanks to the massive concentration of firepower placed along the defense lines the 1,9 million troops that hold the Loire-Alps Line maintain their efforts to hold the line. Despite the air superioirty of the enemy forces French and Allied air forces do all they can to aid the defense of the line and artillery volleys occur day in and day out across the line, Large scale and often concentrated barrages of bunker busters, tugston, and DU (depleted uranium) rounds and air fuel bombs (biometric bombs) by the French manage to inflict massive casualties on the enemy. heavy usage of emp payloads also damage enemy electronics improving the odds of the defenders. Despite holding the line the large concentration of enemy forces manage to inflict large scale casualties on the French and European forces surpassing 300,000 alied casualties. Taking advantage of the alien focus on the main Franco-European defense line French and German forces (since the German player hasn't posted in a few turns, and since the German player agreed to a wartime union with France I will post until the player sees fit to do so) make a daring attack on the Rhineland to try to outmaneuver the alien forces, the combined Franco-German forces numbering 800,000 troops launch this large scale counter-offense on the rear of the alien and to try to envelop the enemy. Supported by large combined arms of the recently modified Rhino tanks, VTOL, and advanced fighters the offense catch the aliens off guard leading to a major breaking in their flank, the Franco-German forces make liberal usage of chemical and biological and weapons having tweaked many of the chemicals to do greater damage to the repitialian adversaries, all troops are required to use breathing masks now (21st century ones not those used in the past.) and with the improved soldier protection allied troops manage to avoid excessive casualties, troops are also issued improved visual equipment. The Italian and Spanish fronts are fortified as more refugees are taking in and coordination with the Italian and Spanish forces continue. Mass conscription continues as more automated industrial lines are brought up and conscription expands to areas under Franco-German protection with the total French forces staying around 3.5 million as massive casualties keep the numbers from gonig up for the time being. Civilian participation in management of the war effort begins to diminish as the military gains greater influence over day to day management of the state. In North Africa the French forces manage to hold the line in Tunisia. However, due to the large losses suffered many of the paramilitary orgianizations are incorerated into the main French forces bringing the forces back to 800,000 though many of them are fresh recruits who need military training. Fortification of the lines of defense in Tunisia and French Algeria grows but raids against enemy lines continue. mass deployment of chemical and biological weapons along with EMP to destabilize enemy equipment. Plans to eventually retake Libya, and most of the lands lost to the enemy are laid out. However, due to the need to recover after the major enemy offense it is decided that such plans will be put on the backburner for the time being. Algiers, Tunis and Bone continue to develop as important industrial centres for the North African forces. The Alpine-Rhone industrial complex continues to produce larger amounts of supplies as more machinery is brought down and the increasingly automated production lines increase production tenfold, minerals and oil from Africa, and from the Alps help keep this war effort alive. However, it is decided that soon a link up with the USA or the Federation will be necessary to secure a line of resources. The French Navy still active in the Atlantic numbering no more then 70 ships make an efforts to link up with the American navy that they heard are trying to establish a link with Europe. The first French nuclear powered aircraft carrier comes out making it the first super carrier of any European power. The new carrier is outfitted at once with modern fighters and vtol crafts to help keep the west Mediterranean Sea open for French supply lines. The 200-plus Mediterranean Sea navy carry out extensive raids on occupied Italy and Spain in an effort to weaken enemy control of the regions. Research into enemy tech continues and the material used in the enemy's exoskeletons is tested to see if it can be reproduced using earth minerals. Further synthesizing of the enemy's augmentations leads to major advances in gene therapy and stimulant drugs, these developments are applied in the testing now being carried out on select volunteers, who's constitutions and minds are deemed fit to handle them. While many of the initial volunteers die because of the drugs and bio engineering, a few survive and they are used as the foundation for further experiments, all this research is kept an absolute secret, from the public, and even from parts of the military. Further advances in nuclear fusion, kinetic energy, telecommunications, lasers, auronautics and mechnical engineering are made. A prototype for a potential walker mecha are laid out based on the research done on enemy weaponry, though it will take a few years to make these blueprints a reality. Nexter the company that developed the Famas finish their new proto-type rifles the FAR D11 (something of a mix between the OTL TAR 21 and the improved Famas) in coordination with the German Hekler & Koch, the new rifle is outfitted with DU munition and has improved mechanics.Other small arms also come out such as the F-90 (OTL P-90) are given upgrades to imprtove rate of fire and reliability. Thanks to recent advancements new heat munition rocket launchers are made armed with improved targeting systems thanks to laser and IT (information technology). it is hoped that with these new advances the French and their European Allies will soon be able to start fighting the enemy on equal footing. Further decyphering of the enemy's language continues and extensive research of humanity's recorded history begins in depth to understand what the enemies mean, despite this interest in understanding the government and military agree on one thing, there will be no surrender and the French and hopefully Europe will fight to the very end be it to victory or to the death. Production of more nuclear warheads ccontinues, however, none are to be used as it will only antagonize the enemy more.
    • French Dip: the French offer to share all their tech and weaponry the Swiss, Austrian and Czech without reservations, but request that they integrate their industrial complex and armed forces into the joint French-German command to better combat the enemy. The French promise, however, to respect the national autonomy of the states. (mod response, please) 
  • Republic of the Philippines (puppet regime): The Philippine economy is further re-oriented to energy, mining and agricultural industries to fit the interests of the occupiers. Forced labour for all working age adults occurs, drastically reducing unemployment but increasing work-related deaths. All opposition is sent to labor camps where they are subject to poor working conditions. People begin to migrate to the safer rural areas, reversing the urbanisation trend that has occurred over the past decades. The government introduces modern technologies into newly built or outdated facilities at a rapid pace, some facilities are equipped with automation systems to boost worker productivity. Inflation is controlled by a conservative monetary policy and tight fiscal measures. The Philippine puppet regime hesitantly severs diplomatic and economic ties with the rest of the world. Many forms of media become censored and replaced by propaganda. Pro-independence protests are suppressed and all opposition are sent to labor camps (though they still have worker rights). Meanwhile, several linguists try to decipher their new occupier’s unintelligible language. The Philippine puppet regime participates on the side of the invaders, trying to gain Indonesia so that supply routes between Australia and Asia are disrupted.
  • Poland: alien attack stopped after the Battle of Krakow. Reorganized Polish troops jointly with the Czechoslovak beginning to counterattack. However, discard the alien force is not obtained. Task number one - to recapture Silesia.
  • Arabia: We continue to keep our heads low and resist through guerrilla warfare. Our civilians keep digging in and hiding whenever aliens appear while our forces only resist lightly.
  • Republic of Angola: Efforts are made to increase the supply of food in the republic, though rationing is extremely prominent with all our resource. Troops are trained heavily in guerrilla warfare and harass minor alien patrols, though no major attacks are committed as it is feared we will only provoke the aliens. The Rhodesian armed forces and the Mozambique colonial army have been integrated into the Angolan Army, Bolstering its numbers to 250,000 elite battle hardened men who have fought for years in the dense jungles and rugged landscapes of inner Africa allowing a successful defence of inner Angola as Alien forces are bogged down facing the onslaught of guerrilla warfare. The resource situation also improves slightly as Rhodesian remnants have been able to capture farmland in the west, our civilian population stands at just around 1,600,000 (500,000 Portuguese, 400,000 British, 50,000 Dutch and 650,000 native Africans).
  • Kurdistan, having dealt with the alien forces in Southern Turkey, leaves its northern forces on the defensive. With more troops having mobilized and armed, now including women after the law change of two years ago, 600,000 troops launch a massive offensive south into Arabia, hoping to link up with Arabian guerrilla forces and joined by 100,000 Turkish troops. Massive barrages of chemical weapons, for which the aliens are unprepared, are launched. The Kurdish government sends one of its small nuclear bombs to be snuck by agents into Arabia, where it is detonated beside one of the alien ships, hoping to cause emissive casualties.
  • Commonwealth of Australia
    • ​Australia: After learning of the attacks around the world, the Australian government quickly enacts martial law and conscription, bolstering the country's laughably low armed forces. As a result of our massive coastline, only areas in and around major cities are fortified to withstand the extraterrestrial threat. Railways are built in the interior of the country and the government relocates to Tasmania. Munitions factories and other military industries continue to produce weapons and vehicles in order to give Australia meaningful means of resistance. Major industries also relocate to the interior to avoid easy destruction. We open our borders to all refugees from Asia, with the exception of anyone coming from the Philippines, as the government calls them 'traitors to the human race'. A shoot-on-sight policy is enacted on all Filipinos attempting to enter the country, or on all vessels with the Philippine Flag. We offer the United States, France, the United Kingdom, and the Federation access of our naval bases, facilities, airstrips, and military installations to reclaim the areas invaded by the aliens. The military continues to fortify the major coastal cities to prevent catastrophic civilian losses. One million soldiers are now in NSW
    • New Zealand: The gap between our two major islands is fortified with ships. Martial law and conscription enacted, bringing us 50,000 soldiers. Coastal areas are fortified.
  • Federation of the Levant: The 13 nuclear weapons we have right now are prepared to launch at any second, and construction ends to fund the wall. Construction of a wall spanning from the Mediterranean Sea to Jerusalem is built. This wall is to be 45 metres tall and 20 metres thick with built in cannons to fire at any alien in sight. Aleppo is abandoned for this project with 100 men staying there to report if any aliens are sighted in the North, but also a large amount of explosives are spread around the city, which will be detonated should the invaders take the city. The entirety of the Levantine economy is pushed into it. The decision is made to keep 1000 men in Tel Aviv and guard it mostly with ships. The wall is two-thirds finished. 
  • Kingdom of Romania: As we see the world go down, we begin to rethink our strategy. We accept the Union with Yugoslavia, and the 1.5 million troops they have are used in liberating Yugoslavia and Hungary. The troops sent to Bulgaria are withdrawn, and as our mobilization ended, with one million troops being ready to kill aliens. Many people are employed in the war effort. We ask Yugoslavia and Hungary to unite into one government, as we see the dire situation. We ask Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Austria, France, the USSR and Switzerland to help in freeing Yugoslavia. We begin making a draft for Istanbul to be nuked. We secure some Yugoslavian land east of the Tisa and the Morava and ask the country to join us for security reasons. Yugoslavia will be a Romanian protectorate if it agrees. We fortify our border with Yugoslavia, sending the main bulk of forces, 600,000 there. We begin modernizing our cannons and bombs and our Danube navy using blueprints from the French military base. After three months of building and modernizing, we start an attack on Yugoslavia, with 400,000, 50 Danube Fleet ships, cannons and many bombs. We ask the USSR to help Europe in order to establish peace. Seeing an invasion, the 200,000 troops left in the west of Romania uses the same strategy as the Federation in South Africa. We begin the Carpathian fortress and 300,000 troops are sent to intercept the aliens.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation having mobilized upwards of four million troops at this point sweeps through southern Argentina sweeping away resistance as the Federation forces begin the push north in two separate fronts in Colombia and northern Brazil. The Federation seeing the landings in Colombia and Northern Brazil by the Aliens with more troops makes a concentrated effort to prevent further landings and movement of alien troops beginning a massive counter offensive north bypassing Rio as the Federation moves nearly two million men north to meet the enemy with the full force of the Federation with upwards of 1500 tanks, and thousands of aircraft including many new aircraft particularly its UD-10 Inca VTOL gunships and the UD-20 Eagle which replace many helicopter roles with noticeable improvements over its predecessors. These VTOL's in general show great promise as the Federation sees their combat effectiveness promise a long lifespan for these aircraft. The Federation now being a year and a half into the war continues to work on deciphering the language on top of figuring out many of the augmentations discovered in the bodies of living troops. These augmentations while unethical the Federation is able to figure utilize serums extracted from the alien's blood to experiment on willing individuals. The Federation begins to utilize its bases in South Africa to house its fleet keeping nearly half ready to fight at any moments notice. The Securing of South Africa as well as the dire situation leads to Federation forces brutally suppressing the Rebellion movement under Nelson Mandela, taking no prisoners killing all who are related to the movement and even executing high ranking members in public. The Federation forces in South Africa boldly co-opt many of the government officials and ruling elite in South Africa essentially stripping the country of its independence as the Federation has moved over 300 ships to their ports, upwards of 200,000 troops specifically to the White dominated cities, designating South Africa as "Area 1" named after the new convention of handling liberated territories. with a population of about 23 million versus the Federations 190 million South Africa is unable to withstand the situation. With the detonation of two nuclear weapons over the Federation center, nearly 500,000 troops are rushed with radiation gear to fill the hole using overwhelming fire support to keep the aliens from rushing through and splitting the Federations offensive in half. The Use of the new VTOL's is extensive as more of the UD-10 Incas make their appearance being a comparitive match for the Aliens gunships while the new production of aircraft puts the Federation on a disadvantageous but better footing than before with the Aliens The Federations immediately begins using its naval forces to establish and guard Sea lanes looking to establish a sea lane to Spain. The Federation also managing to retake much of the Andean coast minus colombia establishes a route to Panama with a massive transport and aerial uplift capacity moving hundreds of Thousands of Troops to Panama in preparation to help Mexico. The Federation makes an assessment that the landing forces in Colombia and North Eastern Brazil total somewhere near three million and the Federations opts to contain them for the time being while the Federation fully mobilizes its resources. The Federation announces to any nations who can hear or will listen, to refrain from further nuclear usage as the aliens will be obviously nuclear and may eventually use them on us.

1973.0

In an unprecedented move and with the Bulk of Eastern Europe Secured, the Alien forces withdraw from everywhere except the Netherlands fortifying the former dutch nation heavily leaving nearly two million troops as the remainder leave France and Germany to set up in the aliens occupied European command center, Warsaw Poland. With upwards of seven million troops in Eastern Europe the aliens set up a massive front along the Western European lines that extends into Eastern Germany as well with the front lines almost in sight of Berlin. This withdrawal, while a reprieve for ravaged and definitively hurting Europe, leaves nearly ten million dead in France, seven million and counting in Germany with another five million expected to follow in the next year, and unknown amount of Dutch, and nearly three million spaniards. While seen as a victory the Netherlands is considered almost inpenetrable without casualties that could range in the millions forcing many European Generals to consider how they wish to procede with the conflict without expending more lives in mass. Hungary Falls this year as Austria begins to seek air strikes heavily conducting along its armed forces on the border. Romania sees heavy attacks as well as its Isolation now puts it in an extremely disadvantageous position. The USSR continues to fight but sees notable ability in fighting the invaders stalling them out of multiple offensives.

In the Americas, Mexico unveils the Yucatan Wall, a massive wall armed with heavy cannons and rapid response units using much of the Mexican militaries strength as it begins to build up for major offensives north into occupied territory. The US while successful in Boston suffers the losses of much of Coastal Texas as well as Alien reinforcements repositioning for an invasion of New Orleans. The US finally retakes much of California but many alien forces seem to have pulled out for repositioning. The Canadian military achieves a noticeable victory in the East only to be beset by a major invasion of the West with an Alien Task force seizing British Colombia, and its major cities beginning to set up a major base of operations here. In South America, Alien forces attempt a breakout of Colombia having suffered a few major blows to their fleet in bogota the previous year. The relocation is forced to stand and fight. However, just prior to linking up with its other forces in Northeastern Brazil as a massive air battle takes place to prevent the two forces from linking up during the ongoing battle

Much of Africa goes dark as the majority of the continent sees massive occupation and some development by Alien forces. Only a few areas of the continent remain outside of their grasp

In Asia the Alines continue to cost the Chinese and Indian forces immensely with millions having been killed and the Aliens essentially clearing cities with chemical weapons among others. Japan begins to regain more ground as the Aliens withdraw forces to China in an attempt to combat its ever growing mobilized Armies.

In the Philippines, the Invaders continue their revealed intention to wipe out humanity. A genocide begins as over five million civilians are killed by targeted attacks against residential zones of southern Luzon and CALABARZON. Another 15 million in the Visayas are put into slave labor, forced on small mining and agricultrural operations in vast numbers. The puppet government is faced with a grave decision whether to continue complying with the invaders or stand up against them. 

The central European nations of Austria, Switzerland and Hungary all send full military support to help France and Germany

West African Federation: We continue to expand economy and military. Soon as though, we evacuated more cities and civilians to stay where they are due to the alien's occupation, The troops will be released and they could possibly hunt for aliens which they are aiming at West Africa and whole of African continent. This could worry the Government of West African Federation as to why aliens are attacking so much of our continent. More troops begin to recruit as much as possible the aliens don't destroy whole African civilization.

  • United States: Mere hours ahead of the invasion, the vice president and most of congress evacuates Washington and reconvenes in Cheyenne, Wyoming but decides not to retreat completely underground. The military does, however, and now operates out of Cheyenne Mountain. The President and United Nations are relocated to the USS Missouri in the central Atlantic. Military fortifications are set up on the Nevada and Appalachian Mountains, utilizing the high ground to halt the invaders The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. As soon as the invaders in Alaska or Vancouver are confirmed to be in an isolated area, standing orders are to send two (2) tactical nuclear missiles against them. Similar standing orders are in place for other locations in the western hemisphere. The M1 Abrams tank is developed and distributed to all fronts to improve their tactics. Similarly, new nuclear carriers are launched from New Orleans and Houston to join the Atlantic navy. The Neuralphaser is deployed to all fronts against the Invaders. Additionally, a new naval technology is developed that damages the Invaders' amphibious pods before they can land. This is deployed by the battleships in the Gulf to neuteralize the attack on New Orleans. All local authorities and rangers in the southwest are drafted into local militias, utilizing knowledge of the local landscape. The navy and military in New York recover from their battle, helping to rebuild the industrial centers of the city and relocate refugees. All the technology used by the invaders in New York is captured and sent to Cheyenne Mountain, Houston and Area 51. The 1.4 million troops in central Florida redeploy to retake Houston. 900,000 troops secure defensive lines in northern Mexico, working towards liberating Mexico City. The navy similarly helps strengthen the Yucatan Wall.  John Abrams leads the 750,000 troops in New England across the Atlantic to prepare a counter-invasion of Europe.  50,000 troops remaining in New England moves north to help Canada clean up all alien incursion on the east coast, while 600,000 troops from Califormia are convoyed north to liberate Vancouver. The US asks to centralize the defensive military and industries of Mexico and Canada, known as the North American United Defense Group.
  • They don't land like that anymore ... it's based out of ships. And these pods can survive re-entry and direct heavy impact with the ocean ... I really doubt anything short of a battleship cannon is gonna be able to hurt pods like that. -Feud
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin the mass production of thermobaric weapons and researching and creating aircraft similar to the Lockheed AC-140 and use them against alien forces. There will also build small bunkers and fortification to protect against the aliens in the mountain ranges. We will immediately try to seize their technology to use it against them. Our army will be used to hold positions along with co-ordinated attacks on different aliens. We will supply guerrilla warfare against the aliens. We will launch a mass offensive against Catalonia. We mop up the remaining of the Catalonia alien forces using 500,000 troops, two million man offensives to secure both the Balearic islands and Gibraltar. We also send 250,000 troops to secure what is left of Spanish North Africa. We start what is known as the XCOM project to figure out what/why the aliens want and to intercept and destroy key positions. We also begin mass bombardment of their positions.
    • I doubt you have 3.75 million troops.
    • It's a ten percent mobilization.
    • It is possible considering the fact that the Bulgarians did it during World War One and the Germans did exactly that in the world wars, and I am doing that myself, though, I  am drawing from different sources for my army. With Blood and Iron (talk) 01:38, November 22, 2015 (UTC) though I think that 3.7 million should be by the end of the war. With Blood and Iron (talk) 01:40, November 22, 2015 (UTC)
    • I took out a million troops so closer to the norm.
    • French Response: The Franco-German forces launch a general offense in coordination with Spanish troops numbering 700,000 troops to help liberate Catalonia. The French formally invite Spain to join the EU as a provisional member and offer them a strong position within the command structure of the European defense forces. After the war they would become official members without reservations. 
    • Spain: We accept the help and the offer into the EU. Once European Spain is secure we will send more reinforcements.
  • 'Franco-German Union: (Unless the German player posts, I will be posting as Germany as well as the French due to the fact that they agreed to a union a few turns ago.)  The Franco-German forces noticing the rapid withdrawal of enemy troops make quick work of retaking all the lost lands up to the coastline, in both France and Germany. Evaluating the damage it is determined that while devastating the Rhineland and the area around Hamburg and Paris can be made industrially productive within a period of three years. Efforts to do so begin at once as industrial machinery is moved back into the Rhineland expanding the alpine industrial zone to the Rhineland. Heavy bombardment of the occupied lowlands begins at once as French and German military leaders agree that the only way to liberate the region and fully liberate western continental Europe will be to flush out the enemy through overwhelming firepower. The area is also isolated as degensive lines are built around it, heavy usage of chemical, air fuel bombs, biological weapons, and heat munitions is applied. Air raid after air raid is carried out on the small bit of alien occupation.  Efforts to calculate the damage to the population of both Germany and France show that a total of 17 million people were murdered by the alien race, hatred burns in the hearts of every German and French as the governments now operating out of Munich and Lyon respectively proclaim universal conscription to all able to serve. The Berlin line is established  with much of the materials used in the Loire Line being moved to the Berlin Line. The combined Franco-German forces stand now at eight million. making it the largest allied force in western European history. The forces are distributed along the Eastern front from tyhe Baltic sea all the way down into Austria, the allied forces move into Czechoslvakia with the intent of keeping it out of Alien occupation and fortifying the Czech mountains.Answering austria's requests massive air strikes, and artillery barrages are launched from across the Alpine line into occupied territory non-stop. The Czech, Austrian, Swiss and what's left of the HUngarian militaries are turned into a second command structure within the Euro forces subject ot Franco-German control, and they are concentrated along the southern line fortified by Franco-German troops numbering two million in total. Plans to eventually launch an offense to liberate completely Italy are put forward as well as a planned offense to liberate Catalonia in coordination with Spanish forces.' Refugees are continuesly taking in and many are resettled in camps now established in the recently liberated French and German lands particularly the Rhineland and every able bodied man is given the choice to either help with reconstruction, industrial labour, or join the armed forces in exchange for their family's having a place under Franco-German protection. Women who are single are pressured by the government of both countries to take on husbands or engage in relationships to promote a resurgence of the population which has suffered great losses. Using recent advances in drug enhancements and gene therapy efforts to increase the fertility of the population begins with the intent of helping the new government policy in the long run. Paris having been liberated is placed under immediate plans for restoration and relocation of the government. The bodies of the 150,000 that died their are buried in a massive burial ground outside the outer part of the city and the Eiffel Tower is reconstructed With Paris though destroyed becoming the sign of French resistence and the unifying cry for French all over, and it is promised that the French will help liberate the rest of Europe at all costs and make the aliens pay in blood for the suffering the have inflicted on Europe. With the German, Austrian, and Swiss air forces joining the French a consolidated and massive air force is established in Western Europe making it the largest in the old world, the large air force is outfitted with the new French toys, and large quantities of VTOL, and advanced fighters are produced and heavily used to bombard enemy positions non stop. more of the Rhino tanks and advanced apcs are produced and brought to all front. Industrial expansion continues as the Rhineland is exploited for coal and iron oncd more for steel production though it will be years until it is up to the pre war standards, but there is a lot of faith that the automized industries that dominate western European production now will ease the burdens of the region. In North Africa thanks to the help of the Franco-German Navy connections with the mainland are now stabilized and a steady supply line is developed with large amounts of resources and equipment being shipped to the mainland and troops coming down to reinforce the French forces now bleeding in Africa. A planned offense to liberate Libya is made though this is once more held off as Tunisia, Algeria and the bits of Mali and Niger still under French control are fortified. Cooperation with Spanish African troops begin. With the North African forces. Taking a page out of the Federation's book the Franco-German government begins implementing laws reforming investment demanding those who make larger economic gains reinvest after a certain amount though safeguards are placed to ensure that material benefits to their investments can be seen. Increased investments in technological research begins as physical results of the developments can be seen in the increased efficiency of French and German efforts to combat the enemy. Research into nuclear fusion finally make a major break as a sustained and maintainable reaction is created marking the first itme in human history that fusion energy can be used to provide energy beyond the usage to destroy thanks to studying the enemy's technology and alloys. This discovery is shared with the Americans and hesitantly withthe federation and plans to reequipt nuclear power plants with the new technology are slowly implemented. More power plants are created. Advanced alloys are developed after heavy investigation of the enemy's armor providing the foundation for better armor, athis along with advances in IT and general mechanical engineering mark the first step towards developing the planned walkers (mechas) research. Research into kinetic energy, advanced auronautics, bioengineering, lasers and mechanical engineering continue, with researchi nto hovercraft technology beginning based on electro-magnetic pulses, and sustaining a stable magnetic field. In the second round of experiments using the drug enhancements further progress is made but many subjects begin suffering from secondary effects leading to a return to the drawing board. However, scientists are confident that a viable series of drugs and gene therapy programs will be ready by the next year. Thanks to advances in IT and robotics the French begin producing their first drones to help in the war effort. Robotic infantry is also produced as prototypes and starting in the later part of the year and following the Federation's gift of the fusion cell production of the French's own planned mech or APU will begin within the next four months as the final touches on it are completed.
    • ​US: The US government is grateful for all the technology shared by France. Additionally, John Abram's 750,000 troops land at the Normandy beaches.
  • Japan: The forces continue to consolidate in Kanagawa Prefecture, especially in Yokohama and Kawasaki. As the Japanese begin to gain back more land; the Prefectures of Saitama, Yamanashi, Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Chiba begin to be heavily fortified and attempts to make it the solid zone of control, as forces begin to also consolidate there. Many defences are built along the borders with other Prefectures that remain outside of the main area of control; so to better consolidate the main control of holdings. Most of the remains of whatever salvageable is left of Tokyo begins to be taken apart to be used in industry among other things; while a few selected parts are rebuilt. Yokohama is officially established as the main capital of the SDF Forces. Automated industry continues to be implemented. Conscription on a large scale continues. Military technology takes another leap as more better planes such as the Mitsubishi F-2 begin to be planned out and put into construction. More better naval ships are built such as the Hatakaze-class destroyer, Kongō-class destroyer, Asagiri-class destroyer, Abukuma-class destroyer escort, and the Harushio-class submarine also begin construction. For the Ground SDF, the Type 90 Kyū-maru and Mitsubishi Type 89 IFV are put into construction. Research begins on any captured alien technology to try to close in to lessen the gap that the military technology the SDF originally used prior to the invasion. At the moment, the WW2 military technology have been nearly completely replaced by more modern (OTL 1970s) military technology for the SDF army, navy, and air force alike; though more advanced military technology are underway. Weaponry continues to be produced and supplied to the citizens. Fighting against the aliens continues; and plans are made to push them out of Kantō Region as a primary goal; and from there will plan their way to liberate the rest of Japan. The government continues hiding somewhere in secret in Gifu Prefecture for the time being. Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio still encourages any citizens in occupied areas that are able to take up arms and such to fight against the occupying forces.
  • Federation of the Americas: With the Federations keeping the two alien forces separate two separate battles occur with 1.5 million troops beginning an attack against stranded forces along the Brazil-Venezuela State borders and pins down the force with no intent to win but moreso to maim and kill as many of the invaders ships and equipment as possible. The Federation in a bold move takes to the pitched battle in Brazil fielding nearly 2.5 million troops in a bold attack strategy throwing massive amounts of manpower and equipment behind the assault with upwards of 2000 tanks, another 1500 armored vehicles, 2000 high speed aircraft, and another 1000 VTOL's. The Federation also with solid help from the French puts the fusion technology and matches it part for part with alien technology inventing the fusion cell. The fusion cell generates massive amounts of power and is self contained preventing much of the fallout and radiation from other reactors from causing harm except in the case of an explosion in which its relatively minor in most cases. The Federation puts these fusion cells into the Mk2 APU affectionately known as the "Atlas Warmech" which makes its initial forays onto the battlefield, using some rudimentary reverse engineered and adapted alien tech to operate many complex functions. These warmechs make their presence immediately known on the battlefield as the Federation deploys a few corps of these units (about 300 units) to the battlefield and notices a notable improvment in many battle situations. The Federation in response begins to look for many other options for the fusion cells, potentially putting them into cars, Tanks, and all other sorts of vehicles. In the meantime, fusion cells are given to the US and French for study. The Federation begins further development of new technology on top of this with the release of its own Robotic Drones in two forms. The Aerial Predator Drones, and the Ground based General Infantry Robotic units meant to augment normal infantry forces significantly. The Aerial predators make noticeable usage while the GI units are used mainly as cannon fodder until their robotics systems become much more advanced. The Federation announces that all wartime assets directed towards building new Naval ships is put into the development of a Space Capable warship announcing the development of this to its wartime Allies. The Federation armed with many new technologies begins to push the alien forces back in Northeastern Brazil with the goal of reaching and evicting the invaders from Fortaleza by the end of the Year a rather bold statement. The Federation navy having been used to secure sea lanes begins deployment off the coast of fortaleza with new usage of modernized or newly developed aircraft top begin hamming the Alien positions from the coast. This advance on the Aliens from the Sea and Land put them in a bind leaving their forces in South America stuck between a massive naval and aerial force, and the bulk of the Federations active armed forces in South America. The Federation on top of its research into the aliens augmentation processes begins putting augmentations into human beings with particular augmentations going around bone reinforcement, quicker thinking, higher eyesight levels, better hearing, quicker reaction times. This program is paired with the development of powered armor which unlike the APU units uses smaller fusion cells to power them and is geared towards enhancing the tactical, strategic, and fighting capbilities of the user. Hearing of the Federation's efforts to build a space capable warship some in the French and German high command bgin pushing for resources to be diverted to such a cause.
  • Australian Dip: We would like to buy blueprints for the advanced weaponry the Federation has developed in exchange for $12 billion, and free Federation acces to our air nad naval bases.
  • Arabia: As Kurdistan forces advance a general uprising is led by the military against the aliens as they are thrown from much of our territory. We start hunting down the majority of their troops. We take a fair amount of alien technology and start taking it apart. We hope to reconstruct some of their small arms and augmentations while we and store other technology for later use.
  • Poland: Polish troops are constantly attacking. Although it leads to enormous loss, it does not allow aliens to reorganize. We sent to Czechoslovakia a preposition to unite to West Slavik Federation. It helps us to fight against aliens together. And after the war, will allow to combine efforts to rehabilitate.
  • That will be determined after the war kost, also czechoslovakia has been temporarily annexed into the general European defensive structure so neogtiations of that kind will occur after the war. With Blood and Iron (talk) 14:41, November 22, 2015 (UTC)
  • Republic of the Philippines (declared independence): The people are tired of occupation and the government-in-exile led by the former president’s son Ruperto Bayabos quickly regain sovereignty over Northern, Central Luzon, Mindanao, and even parts of Taiwan but unfortunately not Southern Luzon and Visayas. The puppet government is quickly dissolved. The economy is re-oriented to heavy industries, specifically shipbuilding, arms manufacturing, and steel to give us our military needs. Many industries are relocated underground or in isolated areas. The Philippines enter de-urbanisation, and people living in major cities are sent to partially isolated small self-sufficient settlements in the mountainous provinces. Healthcare in these settlements are improved. Due to de-urbanisation, the fertility rate begins to increase drastically. The new government immediately tries to contact the United States and the Federation and tell them to send aid as soon as possible. The Philippine army invades occupied Visayas, Palawan and Southern Luzon. The new Philippine government would like to ally with nearby Australia and Japan to fend off the alien invaders, specially in Indonesia. Trade routes between settlements are secured.
    • Japan Diplomacy: As the Government of Japan is still in hiding in Gifu Prefecture and is unable to respond; Ryuhei Nakamura, Chairman of the Joint Staff Council of the Japan Self-Defence Forces, accepts the alliance offer of the new Philippine Government.
    • The Levant does not recognise this government, but realises that consequences for the Filipino betrayal are a topic for anoher day. 
  • Commonwealth of Australia and New Zealand: The government hesitantly accepts the offer of alliance with the Philippines, unsure if the new government is to be trusted or not. Commonwealth Forces, numbering a million and a half, surround and destroy isolated Alien positions in the desert, while keeping the coasts fairly well-defended against any Alien incursionsThe strip of water between New South Wales and New Zealand is now completely safe. The industry becomes one focused on supplying arms and vehicles to the invaders. The Air Force launches attacks on alien positions in New Guinea, while 250,000 troops are stationed in Cairns and Northeast Australia for a possible liberation of New Guinea
  • They are the farthest thing from isolated. Australia is practically cut in half right now. -Feud
  • Federation of the Levant: The 13 nuclear weapons we have right now are prepared to launch at any second, and construction ends to fund the wall. Construction of a wall spanning from the Mediterranean Sea to Jerusalem is built. This wall is to be 45 metres tall and 20 metres thick with built in cannons to fire at any alien in sight. Aleppo is abandoned for this project with 100 men staying there to report if any aliens are sighted in the North, but also a large amount of explosives are spread around the city, which will be detonated should the invaders take the city. The entirety of the Levantine economy is pushed into it. The decision is made to keep 1000 men in Tel Aviv and guard it mostly with ships. The wall is finished and is manned at all times.
  • Poland: We take our troops under Franco-German command.
  • Kurdish troops continue the Arabian offensive, linking up with Arabian guerrillas who provide the manpower to sustain the offensive. The Kurdish thrust at Riyadh late last year is now revealed to be a feint, as Kurdish forces swing east to outflank alien forces in Ad Dammam. Kurdish reservists dig in along the Euphrates and Wadi al Abyad, forming a heavily fortified set of reserve lines for Kurdish forces to withdraw to if necessary. An improvised flotilla provides artillery support as Kurdish forces begin to focus on Annihilating the alien troops now trapped in a pocket around Ad Dammam. Chemical weapons and massive use of heavy artillery are applied to minimize casualties, while attacks are launched at night or in bad weather to minimize the impact of alien air superiority. Adapted alien technology captured in Adana is modified and reproduced into Kurdistan's first surface-to-air missiles and anti-tank missiles, which are manufactured in large quantities. Research on alien technology also provides knowledge of superior alloys which are applied to make Kurdish tanks more resilient. The population is totally focused on fighting or working to feed and arm the nation, supported by Arabian and Turkish refugees.

The war in Europe while essentially stalemated has become at this point minor skirmishes between EU forces and the Aliens as artillery trades fire between both sides of the battle lines. The Defensive fortifications on both sides prevent much attacks or advances from being made. In the East, however, Romania begins to get hit hard as its relative isolation puts it in a tough position with Air Superiority being achieved in short order as much of Western Romania falls but brutal resistance from the Romanian military and civilians keeps the aliens at bay. In the USSR the Soviet Union fights the Aliens to a standstill along most of the Eastern Front with parts of Ukraine being reclaimed as well.

In the Americas, the US fails in its push for Mexico city suffering from critical logistical issues as the Alien forces in Northern Mexico regroup and support the forces holding Mexico City. The Mexican military is unable to retake Mexico city as well and in response to a massive assault on the Yucatan wall drops three tactical nuclear weapons on the force and arms upwards of 50 strategic warheads transmitting to the Aliens "Not one step back, if this wall falls you fall with it" coming from the Mexican Emperor. The US makes notable movements towards regaining houston but is unable to dislodge the offensive on New Orleans which sees the first uses of a new invader weapon which targets ships off the coast rather effectively. New Orlenas is under partial alien control. The Federation links up its Northern and Southern Armies surrounding the Alien forces in a wide bubble in Fortaleza. The New uses of VTOL's and APU's (warmechs) puts the aliens in a scramble as this quick an advance in technology was not expected. The US aside from the current battles in Boston and Houston remains secured but damaged with many east and west coast cities heavily damaged and in need of rebuilding. The Federation and Mexico have suffered much the Same fate as many cities were hit hard and millions are dead

In the Middle East Kurdistani forces suffer their biggest defeat to date with a large advanced force being caught in the open and wiped out as the Alien forces now in control of most of Arabia launch a massive counter offensive all along the front pushing Kurd Forces to the Border. Alien forces double this up with a combined assault through Persia as tertiary forces move through and obliterate the Persian army in short order. Kurdistan if faced with two fronts. Egypt undergoes the Cairo uprising which spread to much of the rest of the country. Surviving military units aid the civilians as nearly seven million people rise up to overthrow the alien occupiers.

In Asia the Chinese retake Beijing but are unable to break into Manchuria with modernized and well supplied Korean forces backing up the Invaders and supplementing nearly 1.5 million troops to the aliens 2.3 million. Indochina falls completely as massive reprisals kill nearly three million people and destroy many resistance groups. Burma suffers its first attacks as the Aliens look to connect their Indochina forces with their Indian forces. The Indian retaking of Bengal mitigates some of the Attacks, but independent research of Alien technology as well as painful torture methods has brought Indian military technological progress to an impressive level, having independently developed fusion power, and miniature fusion cells which they use to deploy their Jai Hindh APUs which make major gains in Northern India.

Oceania continues to see losses as Indonesia loses Sumatra ans Sulawesi but viciously fights to maintain control of her remaining territory even looking to cooperate with the Commonwealth. Attacks on the Commonwealth increase as the Australian capital comes under threat by the invaders forces, only to meet a battle hardened, and well armed Australian army at Canberra.

  • Kurdistan implements its longtime evacuation plans to cope with recent defeats, with those civilians remaining in major population centres moving north to the heavily fortified mountains, where industry, weapons manufacturing, and most of the population has already been evacuated. Kurdish forces pull back to the second line of defence along the Tigris, abandoning southern Mesopotamia and enabling the two fronts to be united into one. Kurdish forces link up with defeated Persian troops to stabilize the front along the Zagros Mountains well away form the Kurdish border, leaving combined Kurdish, Baghdadi, Assyrian and remnant Arabic and Persian forces fighting along a front stretching from Tehran to Aleppo. The prepared lines of defence hold well, with massive artillery concentrations and huge numbers of SAMs used. In rear areas, tanks, small arms and artillery are manufactured at high speed, incorporating new technological advances from captured alien technology. Kurdish scientists begin experimenting on several dozen captured aliens, infecting them with various human and animal diseases. The aliens display vulnerability to several, including anthrax and smallpox. Large quantities of these begin to be manufactured ins weaponized form, along with bomb lets to distribute them. Vaccines are made widely available and mandatory for the population. Kurdistan asks Persia, Baghdad, Syria and the remnants of the Gulf states to unite their forces and resources under Kurdish command, as the sole semi-stable remaining nation. (Mod Response for non-player states)
  • Syria: With news of the Invasion more people begin to join the army raising our army to one million and we send half a million to Turkey to help for the Alien Invasion while the other half dig in and begin to use a slogan called "Syria will become a graveyard for the invaders (aliens)" Via Chat the US gives us control of US nuclear bases and we put them on launch ready alert. We allow anyone over 16 to join the army and anyone under 16 needs a paper from their parents. We begin to set up defenses in Homs, Allpo and Damascus having civil also help. After a whole night of debating the generals agree to work with Kurdistan if they are in charge of the Syrian troops and nuclear weaponry. We begin to send troops into Jordan to defend them from the Aliens, and begin a military operation into South Mesopotamia attacking the aliens from their Southern flank helping the Kurds fighting in the north. We begin to see a huge increase of troops after the school year end with most begin at the age of 16.
  • United States: Mere hours ahead of the invasion, the vice president and most of congress evacuates Washington and reconvenes in Cheyenne, Wyoming but decides not to retreat completely underground. The military does, however, and now operates out of Cheyenne Mountain. The President and United Nations are relocated to the USS Missouri in the central Atlantic. Military fortifications are set up on the Nevada and Appalachian Mountains, utilizing the high ground to halt the invaders The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. As soon as the invaders in Alaska or Vancouver are confirmed to be in an isolated area, standing orders are to send two (2) tactical nuclear missiles against them. Similar standing orders are in place for other locations in the western hemisphere. The M1 Abrams tank is developed and distributed to all fronts to improve their tactics. Similarly, new nuclear carriers are launched from New Orleans and Houston to join the Atlantic navy. The Neuralphaser is deployed to all fronts against the Invaders. The new fusion power from France helps to greatly replace damaged industries on the East Coast this new power source helps to improve two projects: creating walking mechs and, ultimately, to create a starship. All local authorities and rangers in the southwest are drafted into local militias, utilizing knowledge of the local landscape. A massive reconstruction program begins to rebuild the major cities, particularly Los Angeles, Baltimore and New York. All the technology used by the invaders in New York is captured and sent to Cheyenne Mountain, Houston and Area 51. 600,000 troops are sent from Houston to push the aliens out of New Orleans, while the remaining 800,000 continue to push into Houston. 900,000 troops sfalls back to defenses in northern Mexico, building airbases and artillary bunkers to gain tactical advantage in another attack. The navy similarly helps strengthen the Yucatan Wall.  John Abrams lands 750,000 troops in Normandy, France, and begins to push east against the Netherlands.  50,000 troops remain stationed in Ottawa, Canada, while 600,000 troops continue to push on Vancouver. The US asks to centralize the defensive military and industries of Mexico and Canada, known as the North American United Defense Group. Half of the Pacific navy is sent to secure central and southern Polynesia, asking to coordinate efforts with Australia to liberate all of Oceana.
    • Canada: Accepts graciously.
    • Mexico: Declines in favor of using the Yucatan wall and the full force of the Federation sitting in Panama but will not turn down some forms of co-operation between the US and Mexico.
  • Japan: The forces continue to consolidate in Kanagawa Prefecture, especially in Yokohama and Kawasaki. The Prefectures of Saitama, Yamanashi, Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Chiba continue to be heavily fortified and continues to make it the solid zone of control, as forces begin to also consolidate there. Many defences are built along the borders with other Prefectures that remain outside of the main area of control; so to better consolidate the main control of holdings. Most of the remains of whatever salvageable is left of Tokyo continues to be taken apart to be used in industry among other things; while a few selected parts are rebuilt.

More better naval ships are built such as the Hatakaze-class destroyer, Kongō-class destroyer, Asagiri-class destroyer, Abukuma-class destroyer escort, and the Harushio-class submarine also continue construction. For the Ground SDF, the Type 90 Kyū-maru and Mitsubishi Type 89 IFV continue construction. The first few of these new planes, ships and tanks are completed and put into use; while more are being produced. Research continues on any captured alien technology to try to close in to lessen the gap that the military technology the SDF originally used prior to the invasion. Weaponry continues to be produced and supplied to the citizens. Fighting against the aliens continues; and plans are made to push them out of Kantō Region as a primary goal; and from there will plan their way to liberate the rest of Japan.

Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio still encourages any citizens in occupied areas that are able to take up arms and such to fight against the occupying forces.
  • West African Federation: We continue to build more cities, also expanding economy and military. Concerns though aliens invading the world, we decide to attack them. Some of our troops are ready to attack aliens which of course they aimed us, which Africa is in the danger zone.
  • Arabia: We go back into hiding with our civilians continuing to hide while our troops go back into the mountains and deserts and hide low. We order our people to continue living to the best of their abilities and just hide from the aliens. We keep digging more and more hidey holes to keep away from the aliens.
  • Federation of the Americas: With the Federation keeping the two alien forces separate two separate battles occur with 1.5 million troops beginning an attack against stranded forces along the Brazil-Venezuela State borders and pins down the force with no intent to win but moreso to maim and kill as many of the invaders ships and equipment as possible. The Federation in a bold move takes to the pitched battle in Brazil fielding nearly 2.5 million troops in a bold attack strategy throwing massive amounts of manpower and equipment behind the assault with upwards of 2000 tanks, another 1500 armored vehicles, 2000 high speed aircraft, and another 1000 VTOL's. The Federation also with solid help from the French puts the fusion technology and matches it part for part with alien technology inventing the fusion cell.

The Federation using a new development in technology particularly with heavily scaled up VTOL engine, the C-300 airship is deployed for the first time. Being a rather large ship a trifecta of ships can deploy 3000 marines in a quick and powerful fashion on top of UD-10 and UD-20 deployments. The C-300's make a prominent opening move with 15 of the airships kicking off the next stage of Operation: Overlord dropping 15,000 elite Federation troops practically on top of the Alien center just outside of Fortaleza opening up a brutal hole with VTOL's, APU's and Tanks to be exploited by the Federation military which makes a massive assault on Fortaleza. The Federations R&D department particularly from the FMI state corporation pours money into rail gun development, using mini fusion cells to power the rail guns. Potential for scaling up the weapon to vehicles is done as well with particularly the FMI 121 tank to receive the upgrade.
    • South Africa (Area 1): Coming under the full occupation of the Federation the government of South Africa is essentially co-opted into the Federations military organization of South Africa. Many processes previously undertaken by the South African government remain in place and the threat of further alien invasion has allowed drastic measures to be taken with the Federation and South African forces taking out many of Mandelas rebels with extreme predjudice. This leads to some violent riots in multiple northern cities and mostly black towns but the South African Defense Force puts down these riots quickly. The South African state begins to militarize much of its white and some of its loyal black populations as it begins the purchase of equipment from the Federation as well as the full development of nuclear power and some other technological developments. With the looming threat to the north, South Africa with a population of nearly 25 million and a rapidly growing white population (now numbering roughly 5.3 million) the nations government makes great notions to keep apartheid in place but does invest heavily into infrastructure for the country to allow black south africans a better life than normal attributed to South Africa's new president. The miitary stands at roughly 250,000 with heavy focus on at least white-black parity within the SADF
    • French Dip: The French request that the federation share their improved VTOL engines to help change the fight in Europe and africa, and offer to share their rail gun program and also improved radar and stealth tech.
  • Franco-German Union: In coordination with American troops a general onslaught against the alien forces in the Lowlands begin using the recent tehnological innovations for the first time in large amounts the new APU G9 Martel (hammer), augmented Rhino tanks, VTOL, advanced fighters and the new drones and robotic infantry the forces attack from both the East and West of the Rhine hitting the enemy holdout with all they can. The European artillery and air forces continue to employ massive concentrated bombardments on enemy positions ahead of allied advances.As most of the enemy forces have been concentrated along the eastern front continued bombardments of enemy lines are carried out as the Franco-German forces and European forces carry out another offensive to liberate Northern Italy from alien occupation Invading this time with 2.5 million troops aimed at taking Milan and hopefully eventually pushing east and south to liberate the rest of Italy. Led by a surprising new officer Colonel Louis Blanchard (previously Louis Bonaparte). Louis using combined arms and heavily relying on the new technology to make daring pinser attacks manages to break into parts of the enemy's lines and pushes forward at full speed. Forces in Catalonia also push forward in coordination with Spanish forces. The Spanish are given schematics for all European military equipment and efforts to begin integrating them into the military command and political command of the Union begin.  In light of the uprising in  Egypt and the possibility that the Alien's suply lines may have been damaged, the African forces begin applying increased pressure to the enemy and efforts to move and retake Tripoli (which is very close to the Tunisian Border are made). Supplies are given to the Egyptians making it the first time that Egyptian and French forces collaborate. The French also request that the Levantine forces commit by making their way down the Sinai. The Rhino tanks make deep drives into the Desert mirroring the escapades of Rommel decades ago in the Second World War.The Franco German Union make sure to fortify their lines of defense in the east despite the general offenses elsewhere with fresh recruits and droids. The Berlin Line is completed  connecting with the Alpine Line. The Defense forces numbering 6.5 million made up of various nationalities united in the goal of defending free Europe and preparing for the eventual liberation of Eastern Europe. Czechoslovakia is turned into a Death trap and heavily fortified should the Aliens try to push into the region.Industrial production continues to grow as more nations in Europe add the general war effort allowing for a scale that no one country would have been able to pull off on their own added by a now almost fully automated industry and primary resource exploitation. Research continues indepth as efforts to improve the apus and other tech continue largely focused on makin the APU more viable for large scale offenses and for strategic and tactical usage. Heavy research into hovercraft tech, improved bio and mechanical engineering, lasers, and aeronautic technologycontinues as the French and European scientific community make large gains in technological development. Nuclear technology continues to advance with refining the fusion reactors and fusion sells previously developed and applying them to the general European war machine and to energy production greatly improving supply lines and industrial production with cheaper energy. 'Development of a new weapon which could prove a major game changer for the navy is brought into experimental stages the rail gun (high powered kinetic force.) and the new weapon is tested out on a few ships against enemy targets with great success. However, there is need for adjustments before the weapon can be used on a wide scale. Efforts to implement the fusion cells into the rail gun and into tanks begin. Efforts to develop improved gene therapy and stimulants continue but the test groups continue to suffer from major side effects with most patients dying. However, this is kept a secret as more volunteers are accepted into the program. The focus is concentrated in augmenting strength, agility, reflexes and perception of the experiment subjects. Advancements in robotics allow for the first exprimental exoskeletons to be tested on actual soldiers along side limb replacement with robotic parts sallowed by major advances in cybernetics. Research into the enemy's anatomy and augmentations are intensified to figure out what the problem is with the French experiments. The new alloy developed by French scientists is recognized as potentially ground breaking in its applications (something similar to the OTL fabled Starlite)  but further research into the new alloy is needed before any kind of usage can begin. 'Resources from the navy are put towards constructing a space-worthy warship after extensive political debates. However, naval expansion continues. Reconstruction of the Rhineland, Normandy, Paris, and the French and German coastlines as people previously displaced from the region and other parts are relocated there. Research into Environmental engineering begins as efforts to reverse the damage caused by the alien invasion become a priority to the French and German leadership as important as liberating the rest of Europe. 
    • ​Germany: Following the alien withdrawal we begin to rebuild our shattered nation. Refugees are resettled to the devastated north and are organized into self-sufficient, walled communities, each powered by a small fusion reactor. Each member of this community has received military training and works either on war production or agriculture. Hamburg is also rebuilt and becomes a strategic port for our nation as we begin to build a small navy to patrol the coast and tighten the allied blockade of the Netherlands. Conscription continues and many German men and women join the army to drive the alien menace from Europe. The military becomes very popular among the population and many generals go into politics. Many people also see the civilian government as too weak to defend Germany from the invaders and defend German interests. German scientists continue to work closely with the French in order to increase technological progress. Independently our scientists experiment with augmentation and the military forms a small unit of augmented soldiers or the Sturmtruppe. Finally we begin to deploy German commandos into occupied Poland and the Baltic States in order to train resistance fighters and recon enemy movement. (Until the war ends and the union is dissolved I will post my turn as a vassal of the Franco-German Union) .    
  • Nuova Roma: As allied offensives into the northern Italian peninsula begin, forces are pulled from Austria and Yugoslavia to aid the other European forces in liberating Nuova Roma. Naval attacks against alien positions in Sicily continue, and naval and aerial bombardment begins against alien forces on the southern Italian peninsula. Hearing of the major technological advances in Federation and French weaponry, Nuova Roma sends a request to Franco-Germany for the ability to utilize the newly-created battle mechs.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin the mass production of thermobaric weapons and researching and creating aircraft similar to the Lockheed AC-140 and use them against alien forces. Our army will be used to hold positions along with co-ordinated attacks on different aliens. We will supply guerrilla warfare against the aliens. We will launch a mass offensive against Catalonia. After securing European Spain we send a million troops to the Franco-German Union to help them against the aliens along with 500,000 troops to help Eastern Europe.We also send 500,000 troops to secure what is left of Spanish North Africa to take the Atlas Mountains. We use XCOM project to send lightning fast raids against the aliens and also send a million troops to relieve the eastern front of aliens. We use the technology from both France and the Federation to create our own fusion cells and our own war mechs called “Lobos Warmechs” and use the fusion cells in our new lines of tanks known as “Osos tanks” which are double barreled to be used in Africa.
  • Kingdom of Romania-Yugoslavia: As we see the world go down, we begin to rethink our strategy. We accept the Union with Yugoslavia. The Carpathian Fortress is put into action and the 2.5 million troops of Yugoslavia and Romania fight the invaders from the west, while the aliems being bombarded from the mountains by the Romanian jets. We ask for support and mechs, in order to defeat the aliens and drive them from Europe. Cannons and bomber jets are built en masse and walls are built in passes leading to the Carpathian fortress. The coast and Wallachia, as well as Moldavia, are still held, however, the western plains are abandoned.

1974.0

In Europe the assaults on the Lowlands put only minor gains while the Aliens fight to hold the territory brutally with intent to inflict as many casualties as humanly possible on the Attackers. While minor the attack proves the defensive fortifications can be breached and the Aliens driven from the Lowlands. The Italian front goes well with European forces advancing farther south and retaking rome only to find the city has suffered extreme collateral damage from the fighting. The Berlin lines hold with European and Invader forces squaring off but no major offensives being made only artillery trade off and aerial combat. Romania successfully holds off occupation another year with extreme amounts of uprisings occurring keeping alien forces off kilter as the Romanian military makes serious gains and puts itself in a position to retake the occupied territories. Austria's non-Alpine areas fall this year and all communications within the occupied zone cease.

In Asia the Indian forces using their new Jai Hindh Warmechs push on the Alien forces in the north and on the Burman border with the Aliens completely failing in expecting such a force to be mustered to hit them in Burma with much od the country being reclaimed in short order. Northern India faces much of the same Fate as the Aliens are pushed back into Pakistan with their major headquarters being moved to Islamabad. China fields their Sun Tzu SPU's for the first tiem as they throw more manpower into the reclamation of Northern India, taking heavily casualties but also moving heavily into Manchuria now. However, Indochinese forces from the Invaders begins moving into Southern China forcing a critical diversion to prevent China from being gutted. Japan reclaims much of the southern half of the island. The Philippine uprising is given a harsh treatment as another two million people are imprisoned and much of the islands are retaken.

In the Americas the United States forces the Alien forces from New Orleans and Texas with their forces retreating to the Mexico headquarters putting much investment into holding the United States north of the Mexican border fortifying the Rio Grande River significantly. In Response to the Yucatan wall the Aliens build their own sealing nearly 2.5 million of their own troops within Mexico with heavy fortifications putting the US and Federation in an awkward position of having to advance and meet in the middle of Mexico if they wish to liberate the rest of it. The US forces surround alien forces in Boston after a hasty evacuation by the Alien commander leaves one-third of the force to die in Boston. The Evacuated forces immediately retreat to Occupied Canada and come under joint command. Canada opts to join the United States in a union temporarily to more effectively pool resources.

Oceania continues to be a source of great headache for all nations attempting to gain access to the area with aircraft locking down much of the Oceanian airspace and Indonesia losing over half of Java in a surprise assault from Australia. The Commonwealth is able to hold the aliens out of populated areas but due to the no fly zone nature of the alien forces is unable to gain any support navally or aerially as the attacks on some of Australia's cities continue.

The Middle East continues to see major issues as Kurdistan holds the Aliens at their borders but fighting heavily on the Persian border keeps much of the Kurdistani offensives from taking hold in response to keeping the borders secure. In Egypt the Cairo uprising continues to spread as the Egyptian military numbering 500,000 augmented by millions of Egyptians makes vicious country-wide attacks and manages to reactivate many of its armored divisions beginning offensives to open a southern corridor for supplies. They also attack the rear of many Invader forces hurting their defenses in Libya and Tunisia.

  • West African Federation: We continue to build more cities in our country, expand military and economy. We recruit more troops throughout to gain more troops for about 350,000 which is our target to reach. More defensive buildings like fortresses and bunkers are built and hopefully that plan might be finished and it'll be good to go. Infrastructure is yet to improve so we set our targets to improve what we need to do.
  • Federation of the Levant: The 13 nuclear weapons we have right now are prepared to launch at any second, and construction ends to fund the wall. Construction of a wall spanning from the Mediterranean Sea to Jerusalem is built. This wall is to be 45 metres tall and 20 metres thick with built in cannons to fire at any alien in sight. Aleppo is abandoned for this project with 100 men staying there to report if any aliens are sighted in the North, but also a large amount of explosives are spread around the city, which will be detonated should the invaders take the city. The entirety of the Levantine economy is pushed into it. The decision is made to keep 1000 men in Tel Aviv and guard it mostly with ships. The wall is finished and is manned at all times. Troops move into Lebanon to bring the nation under our control. Levantine troops move into Aleppo to protect it from alien attacks.
  • Franco-German Union: The onslaught on the Lowlands fortifications continues as the Union ad American forces continue their attack on the alliens  The attack begins concentrating on the mouth of the Rhine River the place where the enemy's forces would be weakest due to the breach in the lines created by the river, supported by overwhelming aerial and artillery support which continue to pound the enemy lines relentlessly. Retaking Luxembourg and other border areas and continuing to advance. The Martel Mechas prove very efficient at dealing with enemy armor while the advanced Rhino helping form the breach. The United navy also begins pounding away from the English Channel in an effort to starve and cripple the enemy defenders. All alien adversaries who are caught are murdered on the spot and after discovering human collaborators amongst the enemy the union forces capture them and take them for interrogation in many cases the collaborators do not survive. Wallon, and Dutch prove to be the feircest fighters in the battle to retake their homeland. With much of Italy liberated the Allied forces begin pushing further south to take Naples, and Sardinia in cooperation with the union navy which bombards the enemy positions without stop. while this occurs the allied forces in africa continue to push on Tripoli. The troops from Spain are relocated to the Alpine line after completing the reconquest of Catalonia and the French request that Spain send at least 1.5 million troops to help reinforce the European lines in Eastern Europe. Large scale naval operations in the Mediterranean Sea begin to try to establish lines of communication and supply lines with the Levant and with any other human countries still fighting the good fight. With forces being relocated from the Italian and Spanish campaign to the Berlin-Alps line plans to begin a general push towards Stettin and Silesia are made once the lowlands campaign ends in the following half a year to a year as it is deemed that these areas will be easier to defend then the Berlin line. In preparations for the planned offense in the year to come massive and concentrated bombardments across the Berlin begin, using everything availible in the allied arsenal except nukes, the smell of burning flesh and chemicals becomes a part of everyday life on the eastern front, and the compulsory usage of breathing masks is fully implemented as new body armor with a built in mask to the helmets is issued. Construction of the first rail guns on the berlin wall begin powered by fusion cells this weapon proves very efficient at keeping the enemy from trying any offenses in Berlin. As another plan to work in cooperation with the planned Berlin offense resources and troops are accumulated in the Austrian alps to eventually launch an offense aimed at penetrating either Hungary or Yugoslavia depending on which region proves the softer target once the Berlin offense begins. (i am not not invading either Poland or Hungary yet I am simply preparing for a massive offense whih will takre place soon enough). WIth mass conscription under way across the allied countries in Europe the united European forces now stand at seven million in continental Europe, and 900,000 in africa not including the paramilitary groups raised by the French in the deserts of North Africa to raid enemy positions. However, more and more robotic infantry are used to fill the ranks as the European command realizes they must conserve the manpower of Europe. Reconstruction of the Rhineland continues along with the Greater Paris area and other areas of France and Germany ravaged by the enemy. Studies into environmental engineering continue with the help of the old ruins, but this is declared secondary to liberating Europe. Social policies to promote increased continued as young women are offered large benefits to settle down and produce offsprings, amongst the benefits offered are free housing and guaranteed work upon completing the initial month of child care. Propaganda also begins promoting welcoming the allied soldiers when on break. Conscription of some women also begins. Automated industry expands more and more allowing for widespread production of al war materials. Research continues into the varied projects. Particularly into bioengineering as the super soldier program continues but with mixed results as most patients suffer from major side effects and only a few start to exhibit results with improved perception and reflexes, though they to suffer from muscle pains, and from chest pains. Development of improved VTOL engines to reproduce the Federation results begin with promise though it would be preffered if the federation would share the research so that resources can be distributed to other projects. The fusion cell is applied to the Rhino II a tank meant to replace the older version, the R II is also outfitted with a rail gun after the research is perfected making it the deadliest tank to date of the European forces. However, the tank is also outfitted with stablizers as the recoil of the rail gun is a lot more then expected. Development of hovercraft tech continues though it is years from being able to be used. improvements to the basic mechanics of the drones, and robot infantry are made making them more efficient and reliable for combat roles. The Martel II is also put into development as the French and German authorities look to avoid falling behind an wish to gain a technological advantage over the aliens. The exoskeleton prototypes prove very successful on the units that are given them and larger amounts are produced with possible combat suits to follow them. Special recruiting of veterans deemed to have a particular lust for blood and of violent criminals begin for a special program to produce small commando units equipped with deadlier weaponry and to act as independent units behind enemy lines. Meanwhile, training of special units also begins based on individuals who show great capacity to stay calm under pressure and who have particular credentials useful for these units. cybernetics and robotic engineering continues to advance along with IT. The Starlite alloy proves a very sturdy material and production of it in large quantities begin for application to the equipment. Naval and aerial expansion and update continue and in secret construction of the spacecraft begins. Application of the fusion cells to ships and subs begin to determine their usefulness. Development of superior VTOL and advanced fighters begin using stealth and improved radar tech along with the improved engines. WIth the larger engines the Franco-German military begins outfitting larger VTOL airships for troop and vehicle transportation the new VTOL also being equipt with hevier weaponry to also act as a heavy airship advanced missiles and payloads are developed using the new technologies developed over the past few years leading to very fast and precise missiles. 
    • ​French Dip: The French request that the usa send more aid if they can to help suppoirt the European offenses. The Franco-German Union calls on the remaining countries in Europe to join the war effort naming the Swedish, Danish, and Norwegians in particular who have not done much up until now, noting that should the Continent collapse they will follow. (mod for Norway and Denmark, please).
    • Norway and Denmark agrees.
  • United States: Mere hours ahead of the invasion, the vice president and most of congress evacuates Washington and reconvenes in Cheyenne, Wyoming but decides not to retreat completely underground. The military does, however, and now operates out of Cheyenne Mountain. The President and United Nations are relocated to the USS Missouri in the central Atlantic. Military fortifications are set up on the Nevada and Appalachian Mountains, utilizing the high ground to halt the invaders The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. As soon as the invaders in Alaska or Vancouver are confirmed to be in an isolated area, standing orders are to send two (2) tactical nuclear missiles against them. Similar standing orders are in place for other locations in the western hemisphere. The M1 Abrams tank is developed and distributed to all fronts to improve their tactics. Similarly, new nuclear carriers are launched from New Orleans and Houston to join the Atlantic navy. The Neuralphaser is deployed to all fronts against the Invaders. The new fusion power from France helps to greatly replace damaged industries on the East Coast this new power source helps to improve two projects: creating walking mechs and, ultimately, to create a starship. All local authorities and rangers in the southwest are drafted into local militias, utilizing knowledge of the local landscape. A massive reconstruction program begins to rebuild the major cities, particularly Los Angeles, Baltimore and New York. All the technology used by the invaders in New York is captured and sent to Cheyenne Mountain, Houston and Area 51. 600,000 troops are sent from New Orleans to support John Abrams in the Netherlands, brining the troops there up to 1.4 million. A combined naval attack proceeds against Amsterdam. 900,000 troops fortify the Rio Grande against the aliens. The navy similarly helps strengthen the Yucatan Wall.  50,000 troops remain stationed in Ottawa, Canada, while 600,000 troops continue to push on Vancouver. Canada is annexed as a US state, whereupon its military is upgraded with fusion technology. 100,000 troops are sent to help caputre British Colombia, while 300,000 troops are sent to help the US forces hold Ottawa. The Pacific navy is sent to help the Australian navy capture Indonesia, convoying 900,000 troops from Texas to Canberra and Papua.
    • US dip: We ask Australia and New Zealand to join in the Union to be economically and militarily protected.
  • Japan: The forces continue to consolidate in Kanagawa Prefecture, especially in Yokohama and Kawasaki. The Prefectures of Saitama, Yamanashi, Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Chiba continue to be heavily fortified and continues to make it the solid zone of control, as forces begin to also consolidate there. With more of Southern Honshū liberated; Shizuoka Prefecture is brought in along with most of Nagano Prefecture to be part of the solid zone of control; and are fortified. The rest of Chūbu Region, save for Niigata Prefecture, and Kansai Region also begin to be fortified as well. Many defences are built along the borders with other Prefectures that remain outside of the main area of control; so to better consolidate the main control of holdings. Most of the remains of whatever salvageable is left of Tokyo continues to be taken apart to be used in industry among other things; while a few selected parts are rebuilt. Automated industry continues to be implemented. Conscription on a large scale continues. Better planes such as the Mitsubishi F-2 continues construction. More better naval ships are built such as the Hatakaze-class destroyer, Kongō-class destroyer, Asagiri-class destroyer, Abukuma-class destroyer escort, and the Harushio-class submarine also continue construction. For the Ground SDF, the Type 90 Kyū-maru and Mitsubishi Type 89 IFV continue construction. More of these new planes, ships, and tanks are completed and put into use; while more are being produced. Research continues on any captured alien technology to try to close in to lessen the gap that the military technology the SDF originally used prior to the invasion. Weaponry continues to be produced and supplied to the citizens. The government in Gifu Prefecture relocates again, this time to Kanagawa Prefecture. Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio still encourages any citizens in occupied areas that are able to take up arms and such to fight against the occupying forces. Fighting against the aliens continues; and revised plans are made; with the new main goal of focusing on liberating the rest of Southern Japan first, starting with the Chūgoku Region and Shikoku; and and from there will plan their way to liberate the rest of Japan. A good amount of forces are to stand guard in the solid area of control (Saitama, Yamanashi, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Shizuoka Prefectures; and most of Nagano Prefecture).
  • Kurdistan continues its policy of total war against the alien threat. Large quantities of a variety of anthrax non-lethal to humans is produced, along with bomb lets for delivery. Fusion technology is widely integrated into the military while manufacturing is automated to allow more troops to be sent to the front. With Persia largely disintegrated and Kurdistan defending its remaining territory in the east, eastern Persia is placed under Kurdish administration, with the predominantly Azeri, Lur and Tabari regions organized into autonomous ethnic states. Kurdish troops are joined by the remains of the Arabian, Persian, Omani and Bahraini militaries, which are in turn bolstered by refugees. With Kurdish troops pressured on all fronts, a staged withdrawal in the unpopulated regions of eastern Mesopotamia begins, shortening lines and enabling a substantial reserve of 200,000 troops to be established. In early December, with weather worsening and the passes snowed over in the Zagros Mountains, these reserves launch a massive offensive aiming for the Caspian port of Rasht, to encircle and destroy alien troops in the pocket north of this. Kurdish armoured spearheads of new, upgraded tanks and a few experimental mechas smash alien forces, followed by infantry, who entrench to lock in Kurdish control of territory. (My military isn't joining up with you. We are fighting a guerrilla war in Arabia). Person
  • Syria: With news of the Invasion more people begin to join the army raising our army to one million and we send half a million to Turkey to help for the Alien Invasion while the other half dig in and begin to use a slogan called "Syria will become a graveyard for the invaders (aliens)" Via Chat the US gives us control of US nuclear bases and we put them on launch ready alert. We allow anyone over 16 to join the army and anyone under 16 needs a paper from their parents. We begin to set up defenses in Homs, Allpo and Damascus having civil also help. After a whole night of debating the generals agree to work with Kurdistan if they are in charge of the Syrian troops and nuclear weaponry. We begin to send troops into Jordan to defend them from the Aliens, and begin a military operation into South Mesopotamia attacking the aliens from their Southern flank helping the Kurds fighting in the north. We begin to see a huge increase of troops after the school year end with most begin at the age of 16. We decline the Fed. of Levant seeing it as Israel but are willing to work with Fed. of Levant in Iraq with goals of Falking the aliens from the west through Jordan with goal of surounding the aliens in Iraq. We also clam Aleppo under Syrian land and not Levant land and kindly ask Levant to pull out and send 9000 troops to Aleppo to watch the Levant soldiers. We coutiue our assault on the aliens with hope of helping the Kurds out by attacking the aliens from West of Iraq.
  • Arabia: We keep our heads low and avoid large scale confrontation while still picking off groups of aliens who are isolated and generally sabotage their attempts to occupy.
  • Republic of the Philippines (declared independence): The economy is re-oriented to heavy industries, specifically shipbuilding, arms manufacturing, and steel to give us our military needs. Many industries are relocated underground or in isolated areas. The Philippines enter de-urbanisation, and people living in major cities are sent to partially isolated small self-sufficient settlements in the mountainous provinces. Healthcare in these settlements are improved. Due to de-urbanisation, the fertility rate begins to increase drastically. The new government immediately tries to contact the United States and the Federation and tell them to send military (and economic) aid as soon as possible. The Philippine army invades occupied Philippines. Trade routes between settlements are secured.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin the mass production ofthermobaric weapons and researching and creating aircraft similar to the Lockheed AC-140 and use them against alien forces. Our army will be used to hold positions along with co-ordinated attacks on different aliens. We will supply guerrilla warfare against the aliens. We will launch a mass offensive against Catalonia. After securing European Spain we send a million troops to the Franco-German Union to help them against the aliens along with 500,000 troops to help Eastern Europe.We also send500,000 troops to secure what is left of Spanish North Africa to take the Atlas Mountains. We use XCOM project to send lightning fast raids against the aliens and also send a million troops to relieve the eastern front of aliens. We use the technology from both France and the Federation to create our own fusion cells and our own war mechs called “Lobos Warmechs” and use the fusion cells in our new lines of tanks known as “Osos tanks” which are double barreled to be used in Africa.
  • The United Kingdom: The Coast of Ireland is lined up with missiles all aimed at the Scottish Coast. The first infantry using new Franco-German technology is formed and consists of 120,000 soldiers. We demand Scandinavia enters the conflict in Europe. We suggest that the EU begins using the same the same currency in order to strengthen the rapidly declining European economies. All Irish citizens (men and women over the age of 18) are drafted into the army raising our number to around 3.5 million soldiers. Scientists develop biochemical missiles and send them over te border of England into the occupied areas of Scotland. Curfews are enacted. All British machinery is mandated to use a new environmentally safe fuel source that is kept a secret by the British government. British Military Intelligence begins spying on the alien invaders and studying their strange machinery.
    • Franco-German Dip: The French agree to eventually adopt a common currency but at the present this is not feasible and that the war effort is priority. The French also begin sending mechas, and other bits of the united European forces technology and military gear to the british, and the promise to send troops to reinfore the british lines soon.
  • Federation of the Americas: With the Liberation of Fortaleza at hand and the Alien forces wiped out in Colombia the Federation devotes nearly four million men, another 300,000 of its GI robotics units and thousands of vehicles and aircraft to the assault with the clear intention of taking only the commander of the Fortaleza operations as a prisoner of war and killing the rest of his men. With nearly 15 million Federation citizens having been slaughtered in the war the Federation publicly kills any and all alien prisoners and with the retaking of various medium sized towns and suburbs leading up to Fortaleza the Federation makes sure the Aliens see every excruciating moment of their comrades agony. With the potential of Victory at hand the Federation opens up the floogates to Operation: Overlord throwing nearly 1000 APU's and nearly one million infantry covered by quick armor and mechanized advances to open up the civlian populace to evacuation. While definitively decreased there are still millions of people living within the battle zone of Fortaleza and the Federation is unwilling to lose more in its endeavors. The Federation evacuated nearly 800,000 people from Fortaleza proper before beginning its true invasion of the city. With nearly 30 C-300's and a massive air battle taking place Fortaleza is turned into a hell on earth with brutal street by street fighting occuring. The First Deployment the next generation F/A-23 aircraft comes into play and is noticeably on par with alien aircraft for the first time in the war a human jet aircraft maintains sustainable losses against the Aliens air forces. The aerial battle in particular is crucial as thousands of air craft criss cross the sky mostly to put down many of the Invaders ships. In Tandem with the Navy which as conducted the Seige of Fortaleza for the past year and a half, the Navy deploys many of its new aircraft as well as well providing massive fire support turning Fortaleza further into a destroyed battlefield. At the burning cost of hundreds of thousands multiple breakthrough are achieved and many Alien units cut off and destroyed with the ultimate goal of securing the Alien commander within reach the assault presses on with clear victory at hand. With upwards of four million men dealing with the Battle for Fortaleza the Federation reinforces another one million troops to Southern Mexico on top of the million sitting in Panama and begins combat operations in Southern Mexico essentially incorporating Mexican units as the advance beyond the Yucatan Line begins. With the intentions of pushing on Mexico city, the Federation forces gains some modest air support and cautiously advances looking to gauge alien positions before planning the invasion of Mexico City. In Africa with the Union of South Africa having lost a decent amount of territory is reinforced with a further one million men who begin establishing the South African front in the War against the Aliens using all equipment at their disposal to build a viable defensive line. with the mobilized military manpower sitting clearly at nine million the Federation makes a concentrated effort to show some solidarity with the US and European Allies beginning to move upwards of 500,000 troops into North Africa as well as moving a large battlegroups of a few battleships, carriers, and other auxiliaries to support the nearly 20 C-300 Stratofortresses making their move on Tripoli to support the French followed by a clear follow up amphibious invasion. The Federation also begins to use prototype stealth VTOL's to begin delivering modern equipment to egypt in the south to facilitate their further uprising.
  • Kingdom of Romania-Yugoslavia: As we see the world go down, we begin to rethink our strategy. We accept the Union with Yugoslavia. The Carpathian Fortress is put into action and the 2.5 million troops of Yugoslavia and Romania secure Romania, while any aliens are being bombarded from the mountains by the Romanian jets. We ask for support and mechs, in order to defeat the aliens and drive them from Europe. Cannons and bomber jets are built en masse and walls are built in passes leading to the Carpathian fortress. The western plains are reclaimed. Walls are begun to be built on the rivers Danube and Prut, and a wall from the southernmost chunk of the coast to the Danube.
  • French Dip: The French will attempt to supply the Romanians through the South Balkans.


1974.5

The Threat in the United States dies down significantly with only the Canadian province of British Colombia holding nearly 1.3 million invaders holding the province down with a major stronghold in Vancouver. The Us economy shows growth for the first time since the war began In South America the Federation is in a similar situation with a heavy push to take out Fortaleza meeting rough resistance but is undeterred by millions of Federation troops overrunning the defenders with the city all but retaken besides a few holdouts. Almost all of the invaders are slaughtered in this battle. In Mexico, Mexican and Federation forces continue to probe north to find out good locations for offensives.

In Europe the Netherlands sees large amounts of land retaken by European forces who only have to retake Amsterdam. The Berlin line continues to hold while both sides fortify their positions heavily. In the USSR the Aliens begin a major offensive of Leningrad looking to hit the USSR as hard as possible and stretch down to hit more major Russian cities. The USSR to the point estimates nearly 12 million or more dead and counting.

In the majority of Africa nothing major happens besides minor territorial gains by Ethiopia who begins to prepare for a major offensive in 1975 against the invaders. Tripoli is Retaken as major assault by French and Federation forces slam the Aliens between two armies forcing them well back into Libya

In Asia Japan maintains her territory but sees many uprisings to retake land for japan occur in the north. China continues to fight brutally but is stalemated only stemming the northern alien counter-offensives with a few of their first nuclear devices, one of them Strategic which causes major losses to Chinese and Alien forces alike. India continues to fight failing to retake Pakistan but also establishing control over much of its territory again as it fights in Indochina and pushes on the Middle East.

In the Middle East the Kurdish forces are able to retake parts of Persia and some more of the Iraq area. Egypt continues its uprising and with some modern military equipment being gifted to it begins opening up a supply corridor near the southern Suez area to re-organize and get more assistance.

  • West African Federation: We continue to expand our military slightly and recruit dozens of troops for about 3500 troops already We continue to build even more cities in order to have more populated people in our country. Some of our fortifications which is defensive like bunkers and fortresses are looking to be almost complete. As due the aliens take invasion of USSR which we have to stop aliens take over the world.
  • United States: The government relocates back to Washinton, DC, which has been heavily fortified since the initial invasion. The United Nations and the President likewise returns to New York. The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. Greenland and Iceland are annexed as territories by the United States. As soon as the invaders in Alaska or Vancouver are confirmed to be in an isolated area, standing orders are to send two (2) tactical nuclear missiles against them. Similar standing orders are in place for other locations in the western hemisphere. The M1 Abrams tank is developed and distributed to all fronts to improve their tactics.

A massive reconstruction program begins to rebuild the major cities, particularly Los Angeles, Baltimore and New York. All the technology used by the invaders in New York is captured and sent to Cheyenne Mountain, Houston and Area 51. The million troops in the Netherlands continue to press further inland eastward towards Hesse. 900,000 troops fortify the Rio Grande against the aliens. The navy similarly helps strengthen the Yucatan Wall. A total of 1.1 million troops fight to retake British Colombia. The Pacific Navy is sent to liberate Australia, as 900,000 troops land in Papua, Christchurch, and Canberra.The US asks to join in a union with Australia and New Zealand to help mutually befefit economically and militarily. The US also works to reestablish EATO, asking to coordinate the military fronts of China, Japan, Philippines, Malaysia, Korea and Indonesia to drive the Invaders from East Asia.
  • Those areas are a death trap and Australia was invaded... no way you liberate those before you liberate the Aussies. -Feud
  • Fixed -Nate
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio after several hours of discussing with the rest of the parliament, accepts; but asks the US, if they do send support to Japan, to not use biological, chemical, nuclear, nor radiological weapons whatsoever.
    • US agrees, and an official document known as the Bonesteel Doctrine forbids the US from using WMD's against any allied nation or significantly-populated area.
  • Japan: The forces continue to consolidate in Kanagawa Prefecture, especially in Yokohama and Kawasaki. The Prefectures of Saitama, Yamanashi, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Shizuoka, and most of Nagano continue to be heavily fortified and continues to make it the solid zone of control, as forces begin to also consolidate there. The rest of Chūbu Region, save for Niigata Prefecture, and Kansai Region also continues to be fortified as well. Many defences are built along the borders with other Prefectures that remain outside of the main area of control; so to better consolidate the main control of holdings. Most of the remains of whatever salvageable is left of Tokyo continues to be taken apart to be used in industry among other things; while a few selected parts are rebuilt. Automated industry continues to be implemented. Conscription on a large scale continues. Better planes such as the Mitsubishi F-2 continues construction. More better naval ships are built such as the Hatakaze-class destroyer, Kongō-class destroyer, Asagiri-class destroyer, Abukuma-class destroyer escort, and the Harushio-class submarine also continue construction. For the Ground SDF, the Type 90 Kyū-maru and Mitsubishi Type 89 IFV continue construction. More of these new planes, ships and tanks are completed and put into use; while more are being produced. Research continues on any captured alien technology to try to close in to lessen the gap that the military technology the SDF originally used prior to the invasion. In light of the research, some EMPs begin to be developed, and working on a new project, codenamed "Tsukumogami", which aims to develop mechs. Some other new planned projects are revealed, such as the new Mitsubishi ATD-X, Mitsubishi Type 10, Mitsubishi Maneuver Combat Vehicle, Atago-class destroyer, Akizuki-class destroyer, and the Sōryū-class submarine; and plans to build them will happen sometime near the end of next year. Weaponry continues to be produced and supplied to the citizens. Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio still encourages any citizens in occupied areas that are able to take up arms and such to fight against the occupying forces. Fighting against the aliens continues; and taking advantage of rebellion in the north; redesigns its plans so the liberation of the rest of Kantō Region (Tochigi, Gunma, Ibaraki), along with the rest of Chūbu Region takes place first; and from there aims to push into Tōhoku Region, and from there will liberate the rest of Japan.
  • Arabia: Our military starts raiding the southern areas of our country to hunt for aliens while our people under occupation start using our industry which was hidden before the invasion we start producing basic firearms in preparation for a major uprising. We start gathering intelligence on the alien positions.
  • Federation of the Americas: With the Liberation of Fortaleza at hand and the Alien forces wiped out in Colombia the Federation devotes nearly four million men, another 300,000 of its GI robotics units and thousands of vehicles and aircraft to the assault with the clear intention of taking only the commander of the Fortaleza operations as a prisoner of war and killing the rest of his men.

With the potential of Victory at hand the Federation opens up the floogates to Operation: Overlord throwing nearly 1000 APU's and nearly one million infantry covered by quick armor and mechanized advances to open up the civlian populace to evacuation. While definitively decreased there are still millions of people living within the battle zone of Fortaleza and the Federation is unwilling to lose more in its endeavors. The Federation evacuated nearly 800,000 people from Fortaleza proper before beginning its true invasion of the city. With nearly 30 C-300's and a massive air battle taking place Fortaleza is turned into a hell on earth with brutal street by street fighting occuring. The First Deployment the next generation F/A-23 aircraft comes into play and is noticeably on par with alien aircraft for the first time in the war a human jet aircraft maintains sustainable losses against the Aliens air forces. The aerial battle in particular is crucial as thousands of air craft criss cross the sky mostly to put down many of the Invaders ships. In Tandem with the Navy which as conducted the Seige of Fortaleza for the past year and a half, the Navy deploys many of its new aircraft as well as well providing massive fire support turning Fortaleza further into a destroyed battlefield. At the burning cost of hundreds of thousands multiple breakthrough are achieved and many Alien units cut off and destroyed with the ultimate goal of securing the Alien commander within reach the assault presses on with clear victory at hand. With upwards of four million men dealing with the Battle for Fortaleza the Federation reinforces another one million troops to Southern Mexico on top of the million sitting in Panama and begins combat operations in Southern Mexico essentially incorporating Mexican units as the advance beyond the Yucatan Line begins. With the intentions of pushing on Mexico city, the Federation forces gains some modest air support and cautiously advances looking to gauge alien positions before planning the invasion of Mexico City. In Africa with the Union of South Africa having lost a decent amount of territory is reinforced with a further one million men who begin establishing the South African front in the War against the Aliens using all equipment at their disposal to build a viable defensive line. with the mobilized military manpower sitting clearly at nine million the Federation makes a concentrated effort to show some solidarity with the US and European Allies beginning to move upwards of 500,000 troops into North Africa as well as moving a large battlegroups of a few battleships, carriers, and other auxiliaries to support.
  • Republic of the Philippines (declared independence): The economy is re-oriented to heavy industries, specifically shipbuilding, arms manufacturing and steel to give us our military needs. Economy is now fuelled by consumption rather than exports and the economy, with its strong agricultural and industrial base, becomes for the most part self-sufficient. Many industries are relocated underground or in isolated areas. The Philippines enter de-urbanisation, and people living in major cities are sent to partially isolated small self-sufficient settlements in the mountainous provinces. Healthcare in these settlements is improved. Due to de-urbanisation, the fertility rate begins to increase drastically. The government urges for the re-creation of EATO. The Philippine army invades occupied Philippines, blockading major islands and immediately annexing ones with little resistance. Trade routes between settlements are secured.
  • The United Kingdom: We set up major defense lines on the Eastern Irish coast, the Eastern coast of Northern Great Britain (primarily in the areas of Scotland still under our control) and on the English-Scottish border. These lines are reinforced with the French mechs. We work on creating more mechs for ourselves. We send chemical bombs over the border into occupied Scotland every week.
  • Franco-German Union:  The Allied forces continue their relentless onslaught on the cracking alien lines in the lowlands. With only Amsterndam left to liberate most of the allied forces are relocated to the Eastern Front and a sizable amount are relocated to Denmark along with a sizable division of the Franco-German Navy as plans to begin operations in the baltics are made. With most of Western Europe Liberated (except for scotland) the Franco-German Command in coordination with allied forces launch Operation Europa, as the now 8.5 million strong front six million troops (made up of French, German, American, Italian, Spanish, Swiss, Austrian, Czech, and others) begin an all out offense against the enemies in East Germany and in Yugoslavia with the intent of pushing to the Vistula River for easier defensive positions and linking up with the bleeding Romanian military, and finally to begin encircling enemy positions. In support of this massive offense the European Navies use Scandinavian ports ,and Italy to bombard enemy coastal positions in advance of the Allied Offensive. On land the now massive European air force made up of a mix of  VTOL warships known as Bubo that can deploy heavy armemant and act as flying personal carriers for troops and vehicles, smaller Faucon II VTOL fighters, proto type stealth fighters, improved drone fighters, the New Mirrage VII ( a sixth generation jet for all intents and purposes.) and jet bombers that carpet bomb enemy positions without prejudice. Artillery volleys are shot often and in concentrated areas to weaken or break enemy holdings. The Martel II and Rhino II prove the greatest weapon in the army's arsenal as their advanced weaponry prove absolutely devastating. With about 800 APU's both the newer and older model, and thousands of  tanks, APC's and the improved robotic infantry dubbed legionnaires effectionately by their human comrades, the offense is the largest offense in Western European HIstory. The 2.5 million troops remaining manning the defence are largely concentrated in the Alpine line which holds fast against any possible enemy onslaught and reinforced with troops from the Spanish and with large amounts of Legionaire infantry (robotic troops). The Allies also employ large amounts of chemical, biological and EMP weapons to inflict as many casualties and problems for the enemy hardware as they can. Deployment of the ew Euro Spec Ops forces behind enemy lines begin and thy should large potential arming rebel groups, collecting information and damaging enemy infrastructure. In North Africa the French with some assistense from the Federation manage to liberate a lot of Libya, taking advantage a fast drive for the Egyptian border is made to both help the revolting Egyptians, allow Copts to escape the warzone, and to liberate the oil fields in East Libya for the European war effort. Industrial production and resource extraction continues and is increased as the heartland of the EU's industrial power is largely protected at this point. The Governments of Germany and France continue to consolidate their leadership within the allied command structure and as the political leaders of the Union. However, realizing that without the aid of the other Europeans victory will not be achievable so they decide to opt for cooperation with the other European leaders rather then demanding. Mass conscrption continues with the plans of the allied command to have 12 million troops by 1980 at the latest. The Allied Navy requests Federation support for the offense on Yugoslavia by allowing it's navy to help with the bombardment. The government continues to promote the war effort and birth plans by promoting social aid to pregnant women with husbands and an education, and they support marriage of the youths. Technological advancements continue as in the Fed and American case the European air forces are on par with their alien counterparts, and the ground forces are now able to compete with ease with their alien adversaries thanks to new weaponry, the new combat armor and exoskeletons prove very good additions to the allied arsenal allowing the troops to do impressive feats. Plans to miniatarize chemical and EMP weapons into grenades and rockets for hand held weaponry begin as the European command looks to breka the enemy with all they can. In secret miniturization of the Nuke begins using the technology from the fusion cell and that already developed for tactical nukes, though these weapons are said to never be used unless the enemy reintroduces nuclear weapons to the European front. Development of hovercraft technology continues, and improvements into robotic engineering are made. VTOL and rail gun tech are continuesly improved to update the current weaponry where needed. Improvements in nuclear technology are made as tweaking with the fusion cell and fusion reactor are made to improve their energy output nad apply them to greater amounts of weaponry. Research into terraforming (a primitive form of it, anyway) as advances in environmental engineering begin, these same advances are also studied for the potentially of developing a weapon that could effect the land. Starlite alloy is employed on various projects particularly on experimental APUs and advanced fighters and tanks that are still in testing, and a lot of the alloy is placed in reserve as constrruction of the starship continues. More VTOL-powered warships are made with tweaking in their systems. Advanced laser systems are also placed under development specially the development of a directed energy weapon and plasma tech. Efforts to improve current electro-magnetic technology is made to act as stabilizers for the hovercraft tech. Bio-engineering and research into gene therapy and developing stimulants and augmentations to the human body continues using research from aliens, and from their own advances, the experiments while still not complete finally start to show some positive results. However, most of the test subjects continue to suffer from side efects. All enemies captured are murdered and their bodies left to rot as the attitude of the European militaries harden. Enemy humans that are captured instead of being murdered are sent to pow camps but they are classified as non-uniformed combatants given them no rights under war conventions, most of those deemed collaborators are sent to work camps as well.
  • Kingdom of Romania-Yugoslavia: As we see the world go down, we begin to rethink our strategy. We accept the Union with Yugoslavia. The Carpathian Fortress is put into action and the 2.5 million troops of Yugoslavia and Romania secure Romania, while any aliens are being bombarded from the mountains by the Romanian jets. We ask for support and mechs, in order to defeat the aliens and drive them from Europe. Cannons and bomber jets are built en masse and walls are built in passes leading to the Carpathian fortress. The western plains are reclaimed. Walls are begun to be built on the rivers Danube and Prut, and a wall from the southernmost chunk of the coast to the Danube. 1.5 million troops march into Yugoslavia, in order to secure supplies from the West.
  • Federation of the Levant: The 13 nuclear weapons we have right now are prepared to launch at any second, and construction ends to fund the wall. Construction of a wall spanning from the Mediterranean Sea to Jerusalem is built. This wall is to be 45 metres tall and 20 metres thick with built in cannons to fire at any alien in sight. Aleppo is abandoned for this project with 100 men staying there to report if any aliens are sighted in the North, but also a large amount of explosives are spread around the city, which will be detonated should the invaders take the city. The entirety of the Levantine economy is pushed into it. The decision is made to keep 1000 men in Tel Aviv and guard it mostly with ships. The wall is finished and is manned at all times. Both Lebanon and Aleppo are now under our control and both are defended. 100.000 troops move to help the Egyptian rebels in their struggle, with the primary goal being claiming the Suez Canal and the Sinaï and protecting them from the aliens.

1975.0

Was flying all day, guys. Sorry tried to get in the turn early and it boarded earlier than I thought.

In Europe the stronghold of Amsterdam finally falls followed up closely by assaults on the entire alien lines as well as a major movement to open up a corridor to Romania. The European Defense Forces are able to retake most of Eastern Germany with the aliens retreating to more prepared positions in Poland. The Offensive to link with Romainia is a veritable disaster as a heavy concentration of Alien Warships and aircraft unexpectedly put the offensive running headlong into a massive alien base. While casualties are heavy on both sides, the Aliens prevent the linking with Romainia and begin bringing auxiliaries from conquered territory to fill in gaps in the Berlin Line. Greece and Bulgaria are subject to heavy bombings and following up with fortifications able to target ships.

In Africa, converging forces on egypt particularly Federation and French forces rushing to the Suez initiate the Battle for Port Said in which from Orbit nearly 500,000 more alien troops land in Egypt reinforcing the nearly 800,000 strong force which initially started with its strategic strikes in Tripoli and Libya. Levantine forces meet up with Egyptian forces halfway through Sinai. Ethiopia suffers its first major defeat by an audacious and adaptable alien commander which shatters a large Ethiopian force of nearly 1.2 million taking advantage and pushing deep into Ethiopian liberated territory, Taking Sudan, and nearly Half of Kenya. This Alien Commander begins restructuring his units to adapt to the new heavy combined armed doctrine he has developed, modeling it after some Human units which have successfully used this on them. The Alien forces in Africa total nearly 7 million and avoid genociding or enslaving natives as they begin to recruit more Human forces from the occupied african territories to augment their numbers. The First full on alien build infrastructure and factories are built in Africa as well utilizing the great resource wealth of the continent to begin replacing many of their equipment losses that have so far been much greater than expected. He manages to begin heavy resupply to his allied commander in Eastern Europe and to Forces in Southern Egypt beginning to replace many of the equipment losses.

I would like to ask how do you explain the supplying of the Eastern European force if north africa is back in human controlled hands or being contested there is no supplyline. With Blood and Iron (talk) 16:12, November 26, 2015 (UTC)

Supply line goes from Africa through Egypt - which hasn't been retaken - to the coast and considering they have massive warships that could offload millions of troops i think they could use some of those to move supplies from Egypt into Eastern Europe uncontested considering the human nation left in Eastern Europe is Romainia. -Feud

Further Along Kurdistan is able to further hold the lines but diversions to relocated some of the Alien forces from Arabia and Southern Kurdistan begin with heavy defensive retreats covering the movement of troops across the persian gulf. Indian forces makes noticeable gains on the Fringes of Pakistan but the relocation of Troops prevents further gains as the mass influx of new troops and a new supply line keeps many of the Arabian nations from regaining acess to their military stockpiles.

In Asia, China while unable to regain its full territorial extent, does not lose any further territory either. For the first time since the Invasion is holds almost all its ground. The Nation itself puts heavy resources into reclamation of Southern China and pushing back into its coastal territories in order to regain access to a lot of its industrial and populational strength. The Offensive begins in the south in earnest with nearly two million Chinese forces throwing themselves against the Aliens. Japan continues to try and regain territory but the movement of well supplied, and fiercely brutal Korean soldiers in Northern Japan puts reclamation in a hard to reach spot

In the Americas, the United States pushes into British Colombia much more cautiously due to many traps and issues laid out as the Alien forces fortify Vancouver and Vancouver island with immense amounts of fortifications using their warships as cover to keep the US aircraft at bay. Mexican and Federation forces slowly creep north towards mexico city becoming much more confident as forces from the Final battle in Fortaleza make their entrance into the Mexican Front augmenting their capabilities further. Mexico as a nation, severely weakened and seeing greater co-operation with Federation as Latin Brothers moves much control of its military forces over to the Federation to facilitate the full retaking of Mexico.

Australia still is unable to retake its full territory as the Alien expeditionary forces take Sydney. The Commonwealth of australia agrees to deviate to US military command but will not be Annexed to the US.

  • Japan: The forces continue to consolidate in Kanagawa Prefecture, especially in Yokohama and Kawasaki. The Prefectures of Saitama, Yamanashi, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Shizuoka, and most of Nagano continue to be heavily fortified and continues to make it the solid zone of control, as forces begin to also consolidate there. The rest of Chūbu Region, save for Niigata Prefecture, and Kansai Region also continues to be fortified as well. Many defences are built along the borders with other Prefectures that remain outside of the main area of control; so to better consolidate the main control of holdings. Most of the remains of whatever salvageable is left of Tokyo continues to be taken apart to be used in industry among other things; while a few selected parts are rebuilt. Automated industry continues to be implemented. Conscription on a large scale continues. Better planes such as the Mitsubishi F-2 continues construction. More better naval ships are built such as the Hatakaze-class destroyer, Kongō-class destroyer, Asagiri-class destroyer, Abukuma-class destroyer escort, and the Harushio-class submarine also continue construction. For the Ground SDF, the Type 90 Kyū-maru and Mitsubishi Type 89 IFV continue construction. More of these new planes, ships and tanks are completed and put into use; while more are being produced. Research continues on any captured alien technology to try to close in to lessen the gap that the military technology the SDF originally used prior to the invasion. Some EMPs continue to be developed, with some being finished and begin to be used in the fight against the aliens. The development of mechs continue; with the official name for these mechs being "Tsukumogami Mechs". Some other new planned projects, such as the new Mitsubishi ATD-X, Mitsubishi Type 10, Mitsubishi Maneuver Combat Vehicle, Atago-class destroyer, Akizuki-class destroyer, and the Sōryū-class submarine; have been finalised in their design; and construction on them is to start later this year. Weaponry continues to be produced and supplied to the citizens. Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio still encourages any citizens in occupied areas that are able to take up arms and such to fight against the occupying forces. Fighting against the aliens continues; and focuses on the liberation of the rest of Kantō Region (Tochigi, Gunma, Ibaraki), along with the rest of Chūbu Region takes place first; and from there aims to push into Tōhoku Region, and from there will liberate the rest of Japan.
  • United States: The government relocates back to Washinton, DC, which has been heavily fortified since the initial invasion. The United Nations and the President likewise returns to New York. The remaining Atlantic navy secures a line northwards near Greenland and Iceland to connect with the French fleet in Europe. The M9 Abrams tank is developed and distributed to all fronts to improve their tactics. Similarly, new nuclear carriers are launched from New Orleans and Houston to join the Atlantic navy. Fusion power becomes ubiquitous across the US, and power is likewise distributed in Canada. Five walking mechs are created. Two are sent to bring an edge in Vancouver, two are sent to the Mexican border, one is sent to Europe and one is sent to Australia. Plasma guns and directed energy weapons are also developed. All local authorities and rangers in the southwest are drafted into local militias, utilizing knowledge of the local landscape. A massive reconstruction program begins to rebuild the major cities, particularly Los Angeles, Baltimore, and New York. All the technology used by the invaders in New York is captured and sent to Cheyenne Mountain, Houston and Area 51. 600,000 troops remain in Germany to press south and secure Berlin, while another 600,000 troops land in Konigsburg to open another front in eastern Europe. 800,000 troops fortify the Rio Grande against the aliens. The navy similarly helps strengthen the Yucatan Wall. 1.1 million troops press on Vancouver, feigning an attack of several thousand troops on Victoria, while the main contingent invades from the north. The US organizes EATO into Operation: Jade, a coordinated effort of all East Asian and Oceanic nations against the Invaders simultaneously. The Pacific navy pushes on the seas north and south of the Philippines, helping to convoy troops between the East Asian nations to optimize the distribution of resources. 600,000 troops remain in Australia occupy Canberra, Darwin, then press against Sydney. The remaining 300,000 troops are convoyed to land in Tokyo and support the Japanese drive the Invaders from the south. A carrier fleet helps to give significant air support there, while two more carriers supports the forces in Indonesia.
  • Republic of the Philippines (declared independence): The economy is re-oriented to heavy industries, specifically shipbuilding, arms manufacturing and steel to give us our military needs.

The Philippine army invades occupied Philippines, blockading major islands and immediately annexing ones with little resistance. Trade routes between settlements are secured.
  • West African Federation: Dealing with the aliens who constantly target Sydney, we continue to work hard by recruit many people for about 54,000 to have larger troops to stop Aliens. We continue to invest economy and expand military, whilst we build cities and buildings. Kano and Lagos gain more popularity of white people and black people.
  • Franco-German Union: The Romanian offense proves a military setback as the Allies are forced to retreat to the fortified alpine line that has been pushed a little bit into Yugoslavia, and having retaking previously occupied austria, and parts of Czechslovakia. TO compensate for losses more recruits are brought in from the conscription classes. The Berlin offense, however, proves much more successful having pushed a bit into former eastern Germany there they fortify their position butdecide to ultimately continue the offense as the southern front has been forced to go on the defense and to provide support for the Americans that have invaded Konigsberg. A heavy push supported by th entire European military machine launches with 5.6 million troops going on the offensive while 3.4 million stay defending the alipine line which is now refortified. Advanced weaponry helps the offense. The French push into Egypt is successful working in coordination with Federation troops and they employ heavy bombardment at Port Said marking the return of French forces as liberators rather then occupiers. The French begin making efforts to cut off the African supply line to occupied Eastern Europe noting the flow of equipment to the front. All enemy humans caught are sent to labour camps and their names are taking down in a register of known traitors. Major baltic operations begin as well as the allied navy as they carry out large scale bombardments to help out advancing forces and coordinating with allied aerial strikes and European artillery, Mass production continues of all products. The government continues to promote the war effort and birth plans by promoting social aid to pregnant women with husbands and an education, and they support marriage of the youths. Technological advancements continue as in the Fed and American case the European air forces are on par with their alien counterparts, and the ground forces are now able to compete with ease with their alien adversaries thanks to new weaponry, the new combat armor and exoskeletons prove very good additions to the allied arsenal allowing the troops to do impressive feats.

  • The United Kingdom: We begin Operation: Scotia and send a large portion of the British army (around four million) into occupied Scotland along with the French mechs and a few of our own as well as about 450,000 chemical weapons and four nukes that will be used in case of emergency. Most of the United Kingdom is once again peaeful and many refugees who fled to Scandeinavia begin returning home but those in Central Europe are forced to stay and aid in the war effort.
  • Arabia: We continue raiding in the south of Arabia with any aliens killed having their bodies taken apart and spread out over the area. While the population in hiding continue to build basic firearms. We conduct recon and create tunnels to use as staging points against enemy bases.

1975.5

The European fronts once against stagnate as new lines are established in eastern Germany looking out onto Poland. The Alien forces begin to implement reforms into their military focus making them more effective in combatting the human forces in Europe. Clear resupply begins to help them significantly as the Invaders have been relatively unable to build up a domestic industry for themselves in occupied Europe.

Asia sees some relief as the Aliens begins to fall back in Indochina contracting to fight advancing enemies on all fronts particularly the massive amounts of Indian troops well on their way to liberating much of Indochina. The Indonesian military begins to reclaim territory particularly in Java as air support and some advising support puts them on the Offensive for the first time since the Invasion. The Chinese are continually unable to make advances as evidence of an alien command and control puts the Chinese in a disadvantageous position.

The African headquarters continues to make serious advances threatening French North Africa from the Sahara and also making an entrance into Southern Egypt cutting off many Egyptian rebels. The entrance of these forces saves a good majority of the Alien forces from being entirely trapped as the assault on Port Said fails and an unbroken line is Established.

The Canadian forces evacuate unable to hold their position in the face of millions of American Troops migrating across the Ocean to Occupied territory in Asia.

Some other new planned projects, such as the new Mitsubishi ATD-X, Mitsubishi Type 10, Mitsubishi Maneuver Combat Vehicle, Atago-class destroyer, Akizuki-class destroyer, and the Sōryū-class submarine; all begin construction. Weaponry continues to be produced and supplied to the citizens. Prime Minister Suehiro Nishio still encourages any citizens in occupied areas that are able to take up arms and such to fight against the occupying forces. Fighting against the aliens continues; and focuses on the liberation of the rest of Kantō Region (Tochigi, Gunma, Ibaraki), along with the rest of Chūbu Region takes place first; and from there aims to push into Tōhoku Region, and from there will liberate the rest of Japan.
  • West African Federation: We continue to build more buildings and expand our economy. A lot of concerns over the alien forces attacking, while we set to recruit more dozens of troops to reach 400,000. We think our next target will be 500,000 which we need to increase much better chance of many recruiting forces in our country.
  • The United Kingdom: 500,000 troops are recruited and sent to Scotland. Operation: Scotia continues (Can a mod please tell me if it is successful or not?
  • Federation of the Levant: The 13 nuclear weapons we have right now are prepared to launch at any second, and construction ends to fund the wall. Construction of a wall spanning from the Mediterranean Sea to Jerusalem is built. This wall is to be 45 metres tall and 20 metres thick with built in cannons to fire at any alien in sight. Aleppo is abandoned for this project with 100 men staying there to report if any aliens are sighted in the North, but also a large amount of explosives are spread around the city, which will be detonated should the invaders take the city. The entirety of the Levantine economy is pushed into it. The decision is made to keep 1000 men in Tel Aviv and guard it mostly with ships. The wall is finished and is manned at all times. Both Lebanon and Aleppo are now under our control and both are defended. As the Battle of Port Said turns out a failure, the Levant internally considers a nuclear attack on the city. It holds off from this for now, but one of our devices is pointed towards the city. The troops are ordered to fall back into the Sinaï. 
  • Arabia: We continue raiding in the south of Arabia with any aliens killed having their bodies taken apart and spread out over the area. While the population in hiding continue to build basic firearms. We conduct recon and create tunnels to use as staging points against enemy bases.
  • After two years of preparation, Kurdistan launches the so-called Saladin Offensive. 200,000 Kurdish troops attack southwest, driving across the Nefud Desert toward the Red Sea. Massive quantities of engineered anthrax (lethal to aliens but not to humans) is dropped across the aliens' rear areas, while water supplies across the region are infected with the bacteria. To slow the alien response, six dirty bombs are detonated in Central Arabia, in uninhabited desert areas, creating a massive irradiated zone which cuts off alien reserves. A diversionary offensive is launched in eastern Arabia to distract alien forces, while the Kurdish forces are ordered to hook south and attempt to retake Mecca and Medina if the offensive succeeds.
  • Franco-German Union: The Romanian offense proves a military setback as the Allies are forced to retreat to the fortified alpine line that has been pushed a little bit into Yugoslavia, and having retaking previously occupied austria, and parts of Czechslovakia. TO compensate for losses more recruits are brought in from the conscription classes. The Berlin offense, however, proves much more successful having pushed a bit into former eastern Germany there they fortify their position but decide to ultimately continue the offense as the southern front has been forced to go on the defense and to provide support for the Americans that have invaded Konigsberg. A heavy push supported by the entire European military machine launches with 5.6 million troops going on the offensive while 3.4 million stay defending the alipine line which is now refortified. Advanced weaponry helps the offense. The French push into Egypt is successful working in coordination with Federation troops and they employ heavy bombardment at Port Said marking the return of French forces as liberators rather then occupiers. The French begin making efforts to cut off the African supply line to occupied Eastern Europe noting the flow of equipment to the front. All enemy humans caught are sent to labour camps and their names are taking down in a register of known traitors. Major baltic operations begin as well as the allied navy as they carry out large scale bombardment to help out advancing forces and coordinating with allied aerial strikes and European artillery, Mass production continues of all products. The government continues to promote the war effort and birth plans by promoting social aid to pregnant women with husbands and an education, and they support marriage of the youths. Technological advancements continue as in the Fed and American case the European air forces are on par with their alien counterparts, and the ground forces are now able to compete with ease with thier alien adversaries thanks to new weaponry, the new combat armor and exoskeletons prove very good additions to the allied arsenal allowing the troops to do impressive feats. Plans to miniatarize chemical and EMP weapons into grenades and rockets for hand held weaponry begin as the European command looks to break the enemy with all they can. In secret miniturization of the Nuke begins using the technology from the fusion cell and that already developed for tactical nukes, though these weapons are said to never be used unless the enemy reintroduces nuclear weapons to the European front. Development of hovercraft technology continues, and improvements into robotic engineering are made. VTOL and rail gun tech are continuously improved to update the current weaponry where needed. Improvements in nuclear technology are made as tweaking with the fusion cell and fusion reactor are made to improve their energy output nad apply them to greater amounts of weaponry. Research into terraforming (a primitive form of it, anyway) as advances in environmental engineering begin, these same advances are also studied for the potentially of developing a weapon that could effect the land. Starlite alloy is employed on various projects particularly on experimental APUs and advanced fighters and tanks that are still in testing, and a lot of the alloy is placed in reserve as construction of the starship continues. More VTOL-powered warships are made with tweaking in their systems. Advanced of laser systems are also placed under development specially the development of a directed energy weapon and plasma tech. Efforts to improve current electro-magnetic technology is made to act as stabilizers for the hovercraft tech. Bio-engineering and research into gene therapy and developing stimulants and augmentations to the human body continues using research from aliens, and from their own advances, the experiments while still not complete finally start to show some positive results. However, most of the test subjects continue to suffer from side effects. All enemies captured are murdered and their bodies left to rot as the attitude of the European militaries harden. Enemy humans that are captured and instead of being murdered are sent to pow camps but they are classified as non-uniformed combatants given them no rights under war conventions, most of those deemed collaborators are sent to work camps as well.
  • India: With the Aliens retreating into Indochina we launch the massive Indochina offensive with one million troops in order to liberate the region with great success. As a result of this of this success, we collaborate with China by providing them with supplies and air support, targetting Alien supply lines. We use the Jai Hindh Warmechs to assist China.
    • Seeing India's assistence in East Asia, the US offers a closer relationship with India's government, helping them coordinate efforts in China.
    • The Indian government accepts.
    • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin the mass production ofthermobaric weapons and researching and creating aircraft similar to the Lockheed AC-140 and use them against alien forces. Our army will be used to hold positions along with co-ordinated attacks on different aliens. We will supply guerrilla warfare against the aliens. We will launch a mass offensive against Catalonia. After securing European Spain we send a million troops to the Franco-German Union to help them against the aliens along with 500,000 troops to help Eastern Europe.We also send500,000 troops to secure what is left of Spanish North Africa to take the Atlas Mountains. We use XCOM project to send lightning fast raids against the aliens. We also sent a million troops to relieve the eastern front of aliens. We use the technology from both France and the Federation to create our own fusion cells and our own war mechs called “Lobos Warmechs” and use the fusion cells in our new lines of tanks known as “Osos tanks” which are double barreled to be used in Africa.
