1948.0

Mod Events:

'February 13th 1948: Paris 'Peace accords alongside the USS Missouri peace treaty officially end the Second World War. Leading to nearly 100 million deaths worldwide. Two nuclear weapons have devastated Japan in the final moments of the war and Germany has been under occupation for nearly three years.

The Second Mexican Empire and the Federation remain the two only remaining members of the Axis following the World War. relations between the Federation and the victorious allies remain in dire straits as their intervention prolonged the war three years.

The use of nuclear weapons leads to all remaining great powers with the ability (USSR, UK, France, México, Federation) to begin their own development of nuclear weaponry with the British being the closest in development

Most of the Allied nations demand the deportation of War criminals to Nuremburg for trials of War Crimes. The Federation outright refuses and demands to know which war crimes.

The Colonial empires defeated during the war begin to re-assert control over their colonies with some unexpected backlash particularly the French in Indochina.

Multiple operations by the US and USSR to claim German scientists left over from the previous Federation operation are launched bringing the remaining scientists to the US and USSR respectively.


  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation following the end of the World War begins the consolidation of its gains over the Caribbean and posts a large fleet in Cuba consisting of a fleet carrier, three battleships, three cruisers, five destroyers, seven frigates, and two corvettes. Submarines continually patrol the perimeter of Federation occupied Caribbean. The Federation begins to instill some initiatives to work its steel, and other more sustainable domestic industries into a competitive sphere with other powers particularly the United States. With a population of 136 million the Federation is one of the world's most populous but until recently untested nations. With the end of the War the Federation makes a concentrated initiative to draw back its military forces. It goes from a force of nearly three million active troops to about 800,000 with many of the now unemployed soldiers being put to work in industries that need them or are given a government voucher for education. The Federation continues, however, to remain one of the world's dominant oil powers which continue to show most nations begrudgingly doing business with the country. Ironically following the conclusion of the end of the war the Federation undergoes an election which puts a more moderate Argentinian politician into power. Jesus Peron immediately recognizes the war crimes of many Nazis but extradites many Nazi officials for Nuremburg trials and says "the Federation would have never joined the war knowing about the horrors of the German holocaust in Europe". With this announcement the Federation immediately looks to begin repairing relations with many nations involved in the war and offers to enter into talks about the Caribbean with the United States. The Federation itself begins major pushes in technological fields specifically in transforming its armed forces into a more assault and mobile oriented force rather than the brute force and marine focus it had for most of the War. This begins the further development of the Federation arms industry which has taken over much production of German war equipment under a Federation moniker which allows the equipment of STG-44's and multiple other weaponry into the Federation armed forces. This particularly pertains to many German Tanks which are given a design overhaul and are expected to be out in force within the next year. The Federation begins to deal with some of the internal issues particularly attempts to promote the bi-culturalism of the Nation. The Federation also sends diplomats to Spain and Portugal in an attempt to establish a working relationship with the last two Fascist powers in Europe. The Federation begins putting the German scientists to work, who willingly put much of their expertise into developed technologies particularly Jet Aircraft and Rocket technology. The Federation also makes concerted effort to promote a cultural sharing and promotes bi-lingualism requiring Portuguese and Spanish to be taught to all school children. Research into nuclear technology begins as well seeing the destructive capabilities and wishing to add it to the Federation Arsenal. The Federation immediately begins to throw support behind Mahatma Gandhi in India and sends a large sum of funds to support the Indian independence movement.
    • A delegation of congressmen from the United States offers a deal to the Federation: Mutual withdrawal of military and political influence from the Caribbean, except that the US retains Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. In exchange, the Federation may keep their influence on Cuba.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation agrees to this and will begin the process of withdrawing and making sure responsible government is left in all these nations. We also wish to establish some sort of working relationship on how to restore Haiti due to both nations occupations of that nation
    • British Diplomacy: We tell the Federation that if they continue to support a free Indian state then we will begin placing embargoes on them.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation declines and will continue to support the Free Indian State indefinitely. The Dominion that India is in should be going independent just like the rest of the Dominions are. The Federation also recognizes that the British cannot afford to fight a nearly undamaged Great Power in its heavily damaged state.
    • British Diplomacy: The British agree with the Federation's statements but still are not going to allow India to become free. They also decide against placing embargoes for the time being.
    • Korean Diplomacy: We support Indian independence on the grounds of our experiences from the occupation of our nation by the Japanese. We request that the British begin a constructive timeline to eventual independence for the nation.
    • British Diplomacy: Due to pressure from the international community we are going to peacefully work towards a free India but it will not be happening anytime soon.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation demands a timetable within the next two years.
    • British Diplomacy: Our plan on Indian Independence will only be disclosed to members of the British government and our closest allies.
    • Federation Diplomacy: Then our support of separatists continues. If a timetable of two years is not met for a large territory like India who showed their mettle and shed their blood in wxar for your nations, then the Federation will put further pressure. We do not wish to dismantle the entire colonial empire but India at the least deserves this much.
    • British Diplomacy: We never stated the timetable was over or under two years we simply said that the information about a free state of India is currently being discussed and will be announced within a few weeks or months.
    • Turkish Dip: PM Hassan Saka proposes for an alliance between the Federation and Turkey, as well as a trade alliance.
    • Federation Dip: Agreed as long as we are the only alliance system you are apart of
  • Romania: We begin rebuilding the nation, opening mines in Transylvania, factories in Moldova, farms in Wallachia, etc. We also rebuild our oil pumping and purifying facilities. We begin focusing on technology as mean of living, beginning a plan to give every household a radio, mainly for propaganda. We begin designing models for rifles, machine guns, pistols and tanks. We begin promoting the army and send anti-Yugoslav propaganda in Vojvodina. We propose a trade deal to the Soviet Union, Bulgaria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Poland. We also ask our great ally, the Soviet Union, to give us back a part of the treasure stored in WW1, thanking them for them storing it for us. We renounce our claim on the part of the treasure which is needed for us to pay the war reparations.
  • Kurdistan finally gains its long-desired independence, with the formerly Turkish, Iranian and Arab-ruled parts of the Kurdish lands coming together in a unitary republic. A national unity government is formed with the capital in Mosul. After so long as repressed minorities, the Kurds are chary of majoritarian rule, and the new constitution forms a secular state which emphasizes religious and ethnic freedoms. Eager to liberate other oppressed groups (and, of course, to gain land), the government encourages ethnic minorities in Syria like the Alawites and Druze to advocate for their rights, arming them. Oil reserves are developed as foreign professionals flock to the fields, attracted by generous salaries, and train their Kurdish counterparts. Manufacturing is also developed, with subsidies offered to foreign manufacturers whoa re also attracted by low labour costs. The government institutes employment regulations ensuring that they employ large numbers of Kurds. The various militias are officially united into one national army, with training and equipment standardized. The Kurdish government looks to establish trade deals with foreign countries and is especially interested in purchasing arms.
    • The United Kingdom: We recognise Kurdistan's independence and offers a trade agreement to them.
    • Kurdistan agrees to a trade deal and offers Britain discounted oil from Kurdistan's large reserves in return for use of Britain's Gulf ports.
    • British Diplomacy: We accept Kurdistan's deal and open up our Gulf ports to them.
    • Republic of Turkey: The Turkish PM Hasan Saka would like to explore the possibilities of an alliance or trade agreement between Turkey and Kurdistan. The PM also notes that despite there being a great deal of anti-Kurdish sentiment in Turkey, he is willing to co-operate with the Kurds and protect their lands and interests.
    • Kurdistan accepts the alliance and trade pact and hopes for better relations between the two nations, but remains wary of sudden shifts in Turkish public opinion.
  • Japan: Following the defeat of Japan, major reforms take place. A new constitution begins to be written. Meanwhile, huge reconstruction and rebuilding takes place throughout the nation. Tetsu Katayama becomes the first Prime Minister of post-war Japan.
    • Korean Diplomacy: We demand reparation payments of 100 billion US dollars this year, and ten billion US dollars a year for the next fifty years as well as another 250 million US dollars per year for the next seventy five years to give benefits to those enslaved and abused by your regime. We also demand control over the Liancourt Rocks and guarantees to our independence.
    • Barring any reparations for war crimes, the United States offers to give economic support to Japan to help recover their economy.
    • Korean Diplomacy: We demand all of the Japanese involved in the occupation of Korea and China be brought to trial for war crimes.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama agrees to all of the Korean demands, and also withdraws from Liancourt Rocks, and recognises Korean independence, sending all Japanese involved to trial for war crimes, paying reparations. Japan also accepts the US' economic support.
  • Republic of China: With the defeat of the Japanese forces and end of the recent World War, fighting with the Communist Party resumes. In the North East, the New 1st and 5th armies under General Cheng to secure Dandong, while the 3rd army stays in Shenyang. Meanwhile, one division under the control of Yan Xishan, numbering almost 10,000 strong lead an assault on Yan'an. In Guangxi, local police forces and army divisions battle insurgents. All across the country, suspected Communist sympathizers are tried for treason and executed. The Republic of China pleads with the United States and the British Empire for more aid and, potentially, military intervention. Chiang Kai-Shek continues his centralization of the government. The military, realizing its shortcomings and the new mobile type conflict they are embroiled in, begin to upgrade their tactics. The lighting war of the Nazi Third Reich is looked upon with much interest. Factories spring up, mass producing weapons needed for the war effort.
    • The United States pledges support to China to stop the spread of Communism, and sends whatever economic and military assistence needed to put down the PRC.
    • The United Kingdom: We support the Republic of China by sending supplies to the Chinese and requests an alliance with them.
    • Korea: We support a diplomatic solution to the Chinese problem, including the partition of China. We offer to host negotiations in Kaesong.
    • British Diplomacy We will meet in Kaesong with Korean leaders only if both Chinese parties are willing to come negotiate.
    • Federation Dip: We mention the fact the Communist spent three years taking advantage of the situation and that reconciliation or partition is probably impossible.
    • Chinese Diplomacy: Not necessarily. In fact, we are able to negotiate with you. Just let Korea handle the talking to get the RoC and the PRC to at least a ceasefire.
    • Australian Diplomacy: We begin sending aid to the Republic of China.
    • Canada Diplomacy: Prime Minister Mackenzie King say he is in favor of a diplomatic solution, but until then will send humanitarian aids to the Republic of China.
    • Chinese Diplomacy: The People's Republic of China is also in favour of a peaceful solution ... unlike a certain Australia, whom are starting to sound like their British forefathers.
    • British Diplomacy: The UK assures the PRC that we and Australia want nothing more than for there to be peace in China.
    • Chinese Diplomacy: Very well.
    • Turkish Diplomacy: Even though the Turkish government takes a general stance against Communism, we are totally willing to act as a mediator between the RoC and PRC. Even though things such as partitions and reconciliations are highly improbable, Turkish PM Hasan Saka is confident that the Communists and anti-Communists in China will be able to end the war and perhaps create a compromise government which pleases both factions. Saka highly suggests that a ceasefire be reached anywhere from 1949 to 1952.
    • Chinese (ROC) Diplomacy: We would be willing to join in peace talks in Kaesong.
  • Canada: In 1948, Mackenzie King is at the top of his popularity. Canada came out of the war among the victors, and the Prime Minister was able to make Newfoundland join the Confederation, a long-time dream that turned into an electoral goal during the 1945 election. He begins to develop new jobs in the public domain and government. The Liberal Government also invests in the naval sector, saying they will make every effort to returns their troops that where on the front line (even if the real reason is to affirm military presence in Arctic Territories). Even if he still has two more years in office, the king takes advantage of the high polls and calls a General Election, knowing he will easily win it. One of King's electoral promises is to play an active role in America, hoping to improve difficult relations between the USA, the Mexican Empire and the Federation.
  • The United Kingdom: The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland begins rebuilding itself after WWII. We also begin developing new war equipment.
    • British West Africa: We begin mining and collecting natural resources in order to support the post-war British economy.
    • British East Africa: A large vein of gold is discovered in Uganda and we immediately begin retrieving it.
  • Korea: The newly reformed Republic of Korea begins to rebuild cities and the economy from the war and Japanese occupation. The Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea in Chongqing is brought back into the nation to begin aiding in the transition. Even though there is opposition in the United States occupational military government, the Republic of Korea allows the Workers' Party of Korea to enter into talks over a unified government to prevent a war like China is currently experiencing. It is agreed that they will split the National Assembly between the liberal Democratic National Party, the conservative Korea National Party, and the Communist Worker's Party of Korea. All the various forces of the Korean Liberation Army are unified under the leadership of Kim Il-sung, Lee Beom-seok, and Ji Cheong-cheon. After much debate, the first President of the Republic of Korea is chosen to be Kim Koo, and the Prime Minister is Kim Won-bong. This agreement was facilitated by the belief that Korea can become powerful again, wanting a unified front against Japan, and the fear of foreign intervention in the nation like it has been for the past several hundred years. The government begins to build industry in the south and fortify the border with China to prevent an overspill of the Chinese Civil War. There is some protest by the Workers' Party of Korea over United States involvement, but the democratic parties assure Kim Il-Sung that they will work to wind down American occupation as soon as possible. Busan begins to be developed as a major port to facilitate trade. The remaining Japanese civilians in the nation are rounded up and put into internment camps near Pyongyang. Civilian and military leaders have advocated their use for hard labor or execution. There are 10,000 Japanese civilians in these camps, and there are serious talks about what to do with them. Agriculture begins to be improved with oversight from Kim Il-sung who has proposed government oversight of all areas of the economy until it is stabilized. After which, the economy will become more socialist as an appeasement to the capitalists.
    • The United States continues to support the Korean Government, and promises to withdraw occupation when the threat of Communism is dealt with.
    • Turkish Dip: Turkey proposes an alliance and trade deal with Korea, and fully supports the democratization of the Republic, and congratulates the Koreans for creating an inclusive government which appeases the liberals, conservatives and Communists.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. The technology captured in Operation Paperclip are secretly experimented with in an attempt to outpace Soviet and Axis development. Soldiers drafted in the war return to their homes welcomed by enormous celebrations, and quite a number of former fiance's are finally wed. Swing music becomes most popular among tean-aged jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific Island Territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. President Harry S. Truman calls for an end to Mandatory Palestine, in accordance with the Peel Commission of 1938, and supports the creation of Israel. This decision struck an accord among the Jewish American population, ensuring Truman's victory at re-election in November this year in defiance of the Republican candidate Harold Stassen. The territories of Alaska and Hawaii begin pushing for statehood. The President also proposes the Truman Doctrine before Congress, pledging to stop the spread of totalitarian Communism wherever it may appear. Immediately after the Paris Accords, Truman offers to establish an organized alliance with some of the Allied powers, particularly those in the north Atlantic (Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, and the Netherlands). This will be known as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Relations are strengthened with Canada as well, who are also invited to join NATO.
    • Korean Diplomacy: We request to be given six destroyers, four corvettes, 300 M4 Sherman tanks, 50 M3 Stuart tanks, 500 M101 howitzers, 25,000 M1 Garands, 2000 M1 Carbines, 10,000 M1911's, 20,000 M1909 revolvers, 200 M2 Brownings, 500 M1919 machine guns, 10,000 Mk 2 grenades, 48 P-51 Mustangs, 60 T-6 Texans, 18 C-47 Skytrains, and 24 P-47 Thunderbolts.
    • Request approved.
    • Portugal Dip: We agree to NATO membership.
    • Spain Dip: We refuse - citing years of neutrality.
    • Dutch Dip: We refuse to join NATO.
    • British Diplomacy: We join NATO.
    • Canada Diplomacy: Mackenzie King explain to Truman that since he is in election right now, instead of answering right now he will put it in his political program and let the Canadians chose. Should he be elected once again, Canada will join NATO.
    • Turkey: PM Hassan Saka proposes an alliance and trade agreement with the US, as well as a request of NATO membership.
  • Netherlands: Willem Drees is elected PM of the nation. We build up our military by building military bases. Major cities start to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories now higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment goes up since people are getting jobs in factories. A welfare system is made. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
  • Saudi Arabia: We seek to enter an alliance with a major nation. We consider the United States, the USSR, the Federation, France, the UK, and China as possible allies. We offer to sell oil exclusively to that country, considering increasing it to two countries already allied (like UK and US). In return for the alliance and oil sales, we would like to give input in the sphere of influence, protection, economic aid, and most importantly, weaponry, including tanks, machine guns, submarines, and bombers. Whichever country's offer is our favorite will gain a massive oil deal which can increase their military power and sphere of influence.
    • Federation Dip: As one of the largest oil producing nations on the planet the Federation offers to bring Saudi Arabia in to Corner the Market. With a lot of German tech - among other things - in our hands we can establish a powerful and valuable partnership
    • British Diplomacy: We offer to protect Saudi Arabia in war times and are willing to trade gold, silver and other valuable resources that come from our African colonies. Along with that we will give British technology, war equipment, and help to spread the English language and literature in the Arabian Peninsula.
    • México offers military protection for oil and help with nuclear research, and would also help with military modernization.
    • United States will improve the economy of Saudi Arabia if they help to prevent any incursion of Communism in the area.
    • Saudi Arabia: Seeing that we are not interested in a Communist revolution, but also not interested in being captive to the American sphere, we seek a third option. Because Mexico and the Federation are allied, we propose an alliance, a third sphere, to counter Communism and NATO. We propose that this alliance be called the Southern Defense Pact. We also support anti-imperialist movements, such as those occuring in India and Malaya, though we do not take any economic or military action (yet).
    • Federation Dip: The Federation will accept this offer and looks to Mexico for its approval.
  • Second Méxican Empire: Maximilian III along with the rest of the nation starts to recover from the Second World War. The Nuremberg trials shock the nation, learning of the atrocities of Nazi leaders and of such. Maximilian III says in a speech short afterword "What the Nazi high command has done to the Jewish population is ... Unspeakable." After these trials, México, still uneasy with the United States, looks to repair its relations with the US and the USSR. A diplomat is sent to the United States to improve the current diplomatic situation with them. Nuclear technology is worked on non-stop to create a weapon to protect the nation from foreign powers Meanwhile, relations with the Federation are improved on, with personal thanks given from Maximilian III himself to Jesus Person. The autonomous territories planned to be finished being annexed by mid 1950. México proposes an organisation called the "United Nations" to establish order and prevent another world conflict from arising again. [Mil/Eco]
    • British Diplomacy: We support México's proposal of a United Nations and are willing to host a headquarters in London.
    • Canada Diplomacy: Canada Prime Minister Mackenzie King support the creation of the United Nations, but opposed the idea of hosting the headquarters in Europe, as the continent was ravaged during WW2. Instead, he proposed to host the headquarters in Montreal or New York.
    • British Diplomacy: We agree with Canada's statements and also think that New York would be a prime location for the UN HQ.
  • Switzerland: We celebrate the end of the destructive WW2, even though we were neutral in it. We protest the development of nuclear weapons, citing the destruction in Japan. We support México's idea of a United Nations and offer to host the HQ. We offer loans to the European nations following WW2, to help rebuild. We propose a European Union (not like OTL) that will debate issues important to European nations and to prevent the outbreak of another war in Europe.
    • British Diplomacy: We support the idea of a European Union and ask to join.
    • Italian Diplomacy: We, too, support a European Union.
    • Norwegian Diplomacy: We support the idea of a European Union and ask to join.
  • Italy: We begin reconstruction to mitigate the damage done by World War 2. Seeing the massive militarization of many nations of the world, we begin producing the German weapons and vehicles that had been provided to and/or abandoned in Italy, including the V-2 rocket. We propose a trade agreement with Britain, believing that fellow constitutional monarchies should stick together.
    • British Diplomacy: We accept Italy's offer and create a trade agreement.
  • Australian Commonwealth: With the end of the Second World War, Australia begins to turn around help rebuild its country. Though they were able to avoid any direct conflict on the main land, it came close many times. They work on reconstructing the navy which has taken damage during the war. They also work on building on their infrastructure as it is hard to transport across the Australian continent. The Liberal Party is firmly in power of the Senate and the House (They're conservatives, but have the name of the Liberal Party). Australia continues to put out feelers to various nations for possible trade and economic opportunities with other various nations.
    • British Diplomacy: We are willing to open up trade with our former territory.
    • Australian Diplomacy: We are glad to hear our British friends are willing to open up trade and have a mutual agreement.
  • Spain: After the devastation caused in World War Two and the fall of Fascism we feel that our only natural ally and trading partner can be Portugal. We also do accept opening relations with the Federation of the Americas. We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra and Portugal to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We request that they should join in the Iberian Union which would discuss issues between our nations and across the world. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We begin in secret, ways to enrich uranium. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace. We will begin industrialization and we begin to initiate tensions between the Berbers and the Arabic people so that they would not be independent.
    • ​Saudi Arabia asks Spain to join the southern defense pact, making them specifically allied with the Federation (and Mexico and Saudi Arabia), have an equal say within the alliance, and gain access to oil from Saudi Arabia and research from the Federation.
    • Spain: We agree to the southern defensive pact.
  • People's Republic of China: The People's Republic of China, after spending WWII entirely at peace with the RoC, decides to go on the offensive, although this is interrupted with the RoC assault on Yan'an and Dandong. With these being problems, we decide to hold on to Yan'an, but orders to fall back and regroup on the outskirts of Dandong are done, with the local forces being used as a way to delay the RoC forces and for the rest to retreat in an organised fashion. This is done as part of a plan we use to gather some forces outside of Dandong and then retake the city. However, we observations also note that Shenyang has been left with the 3rd Army to defend the area, and Mao as a result organises with his generals in secret and decides to order a military operation called Operation: Sharp Edge to take Shenyiang and provide a distraction for our forces in Yan'an and Dandong and then provide part of the bigger operation to liberate the people of China from the capitalist pigs. Meanwhile, in economics, we begin to increase production in military and industrial goods, as well as extending supply lines specifically for food to areas of heavy fighting and other areas in desperate need of food. Our economic objective becomes clear: to bring China to every possible path on its way to success and ensure prosperity to the country both during and after the war, should we be victorious (or if the peace talks work accordingly).
    • Chinese Diplomacy: We decide to attend the Kaesong Accords. In the scenario that they fail, we ask for the USSR to pledge military aid and economic aid to the PRC.
    • Australian Diplomacy: We heavily warn the "People's Republic of China" that killing their own people for the sake of "progress" horrendous. We cut off all trade to the PRC, food and other goods, and divert them to the Republic of China.
    • Chinese Diplomacy: The PRC is merely offering food supplies to the affected areas, not trying to get them killed. The intent is to keep Chinese citizens fed, not murder them.
  • British Malaya: We send alliance requests to anyone who is willing to ally with us and support our eventual independence from the United Kingdom. We begin our road to a Free Malaya.
    • British Diplomacy: Malaya's requests for allies is null due to Malaya still being a colony under the government of the United Kingdom.
  • Bulgaria: Builds up the military. Not much else, but pledges mutual assistance to the USSR, as a satellite state of it
  • Romanian Dip: We propose a trade deal to our southern neighbor.
  • Greece: The Greek Civil War between the democratic Kingdom of Greece and the Communist Provisional Democratic Government rages on, with no clear winner of the war at this moment. The national military is improved, with more and more young men being conscripted into the army in order to fully crush the Communist rebels. We request military support from nearby democratic allies, and in return we offer trade agreements after the war ends.
    • British Diplomacy: We give the Democratic Kingdom of Greece military supplies but are unable to send any soldiers at the moment. We implore our allies to aid the Greeks so that Greece will not become a Communist state.
    • Chinese Diplomacy: We decide to offer the Greek Communist Provisional Democratic Government the necessary political support to deal with their problem.
      • Please label whether you are the RoC or PRC, thanks.
    • Turkish Dip: We would like to begin an alliance and trade agreement with the DKG, as well as send a total of 2250 troops to fight against the Greek Communists.
  • Kurdistan offers Greece a brigade of Kurdish troops to fight the Communists.
  • Siam: Following the end of World War there are talks within the Siamese Monarchy to break the its era of isolation. but many reject the idea of Siam becoming active in the world some officers in the military reach to the Federation of The Americas if it will back a newly formed government in Siam if it will take place.
    • Federation Secret Dip: We may look to support such a movement.
  • Republic of Turkey: After remaining mostly neutral in the war, Turkey is a mostly stable nation. Ismet Inonu serves as President, since 1938, and Hasan Saka serves as Prime Minister, since 1947. The Republican P eople's Party holds a large majority in the Grand National Assembly. However, that is quickly due to change. Many politicians and citizens alike are discontent with the existence of Kurdistan, and a media campaign is launched this year advocating for the full recovery of Turkish Kurdish land. The RPP rejects the campaign, and states that the existence of Kurdistan is historically long overdue, and that efforts to curtail the development of a Kurdish state will be seen as treason. Despite being banned as a political party, Turkish Communists agree with the RPP. Nationalists find room to disagree, claiming that the land is core Turkish territory, and vestiges of Ottoman expansion. Fascists come into play as well, with many Fascist scholars deriding the Kurds. In other news, fears of the Soviet Union continue to rise, with many officeholders fearing that the USSR will instigate instability in Turkey in order to gain a foothold in the region. However, no troubling signs arise as of yet. We offer to the nations of Greece and Kurdistan an alliance and trade pact.
  • Norway: We celebrate and start recovery from World War 2 and start building new recovery programs for the homeless. We offer Britain and the USA a trade agreement for oil and we build up our military and our weapon stockpile especially weapons like the V2 rocket. We also start research on jets and we support the idea of a European Union and ask to join. Shocked from the Nuremberg Trials we let unemployed and homeless Jews into Norway for free.
  • Philippines: We establish a planned, export-oriented economy. We launch the First Economic Plan. We build hundreds of factories (focusing mainly on light industry) on its main urban centres. Agricultural output per capita is improved dramatically. We encourage migration to its major urban centres like Manila, Cebu, and Zamboanga. Meanwhile, the city of Manila annexes all of the surrounding cities/municipalities. The government begins the massive purge of corrupt politicians. More money is invested in healthcare, and medical technology, and the life expectancy grows rapidly. We ban Communist Parties.
    • Calm down. This is a six-month turn. it would take a few years to begin this kind of rapid industrialization - that and life expectancy takes a few years to gauge as well. Please slow down -Feud
  • Yugoslavia: We decide to ally with Russia. We officially become a Communist country. We aid the Communists in the Greek Civil War. We put anti-Greek democratic propaganda in democratic Greece so democracy could become less popular. We ask to have trade agreements with Saudi Arabia so we could buy oil from them. We would also like to have a trade agreement with Turkey but would not have an alliance with them. We aid Communist revolutions worldwide. We plan to invade Albania, Italy and Democratic Greece. We build our military. We would like to help Russia with their nuclear program and in return when they've completed it Yugoslavia will get four nuclear weapons so they can develop the nuclear bomb. We build our navy and army.
  • British West Africa: While WW2 ended with a big victory of allies, we build the military, improving economy as well. The troops recruit in the military, some developments have been made for the armies. We also build some cities and some airbases, to develop some jets. However, the construction of airbases could likely be done in Africa.
    • Nigeria: Mil and eco.
    • British Senegal: Mil and eco.
    • British Togo: Mil and infra.
    • British Liberia: Mil and eco.

Dominion of India: The war is finally over, and there is much celebration in the nation. However, India is rifled with the question of independence, and in this question, Mahatma Gandhi delivers his answer. "Brothers and sisters, today we celebrate our victory in the most devastating war in the history of Earth. While we are victorious, we are victorious at a great human cost, and may all those soldiers who have died in this conflict rest in peace. And both the living soldiers, and the dead, I want to thank you for your service and your bravery to this nation. The struggle of war is now over, and we should celebrate the end of the war. With the end of the war, however, it is the end of the Old World, and the beginning of a New World. In this New World, we have a new struggle, the struggle of rebuilding the damage of the war, and to prevent a war like this from ever happening again. This rebuilding, however, cannot be done from the very nation that got us into the War, this nation is the United Kingdom, our superiors from an island ten thousand km away. They cannot rebuild India for the war made them broke, and whatever money they have they are going to use it for themselves, and naturally so. This is why my dream is to have an independent India. Instead of India being the crown jewel of the British Empire, the crown jewel of India will be the Indian people. We have the population and the natural resources to sustain ourselves and be a great nation on our own. The international community even supports us, mainly the Federation, who has given us finicial aid that the United Kingdom has failed to provide, and I want to thank the Federation for their generous contribution. The international community believes in us, and with their help we can have the boost required to rebuild our nation to greatness, and I urge the British government to enter into negotiations with us for our independence, and I shall use that money to start rebuilding India. Thank you." Funding is appropriated to rebuild the infrastructure of India and sets the course for industralization, we enter talks with the United Kingdom.

We propose trade agreements to the Soviet Union, Poland, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Hungary and Czechoslovakia, We request a part of the treasure stored by the Romanian government during WW1 back, for our investion in rebuilding. We also build an aircraft building facility for the Soviet Union.
    • The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics agrees to give back most of the Romanian treasury, though keeps a small portion as a fee for keeping it safe. We also thank the Romanian government for making the aircraft factory, and begin sending money and blueprints for production.
    • Romanian Dip: We are grateful and give in return uranium to the USSR for their nuclear endeavors.
    • Bulgaria accepts
  • British Malaya: We begin a series of anti-British restrictions throughout very important cities throughout our territories. We fund insurgencies that we know will lead to martial law being declared, as that is our point.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. The PM thinks about changing his political party from Nationalist to Communist. We ask the British if we can Trade the land in this map we made. https://www.flickr.com/photos/67210782@N03/21888944236/in/dateposted-public/

    • Dutch Congo: We mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
    • The United States offers to help improve the industry of the Netherlands under the Marshall plan, and ask that they join NATO
    • British Diplomacy: We do not wish to trade any land but we do ask the Netherlands to protect our existing colonies and we will do the same and we would like to enter in a trade agreement. We also ask them to join the EU and the USA's new organisation and we ask the Dutch Diplomats to participate in the partition of India meeting.
  • Turkey: The country remains stable, but certain factions begin protesting government relations with Kurdistan, as well as the entry into the Southern Defense Pact. The RPP, headed by Prime Minister Hasan Saka, continues to stand by the Kurds, and claims that the Southern Defense Pact is a legitimate force in world affairs. His opposition, the Democrat Party, criticize Saka and call for the annexation of all Kurdish Turkish land, as well as the withdrawal from the Southern Defense Pact. In response to those criticisms, Saka instead withdraws his request of membership from NATO and firmly stands by the Southern Defense Pact. This angers the opposition, who launch another media campaign against him. In others new, the banned Communist Party continues alligning itself with Saka, and in September, petitions the government to unban the party. Saka considers this and proclaims that a decision will be made next year. In military news, the armed forces is expanded and 2,250 troops are sent to Greece to fight for the Democratic Kingdom. Fears continue to persist of Soviet domineering in Turkey, but no actions on the part of the Soviets suggest any sort of action. The economy expands this year as several industrial businesses establish themselves in Ankara and Istanbul.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation seeks to establish some sort of military presence in Turkey particularly a military base in Istanbul or another city in that area
  • Canada: Mackenzie King come out of the election with a majority once again, stronger than ever. The idea of joining NATO really won the voters, even if the Progressist Conservatives also proposed it. The Conservative Party remain the official opposition. Among them is now a famous idividual: H.D.G. Crerar, the supreme commander of the Canadian Forces during WW2. The Social Credit is third and CCF fourth. Mackenzie King continue to built a new navy for Canada, but only to protect their lands. Few Canadians see that Mackenzie didn't stop media censorship after WW2, and few care. Industries are built and wrokers find jobs all around the country. Canada continue to send humanitarian supplies to the Republic of China. PM Mackenzie King ask President Truman to allow Canada into NATO, as Canadians are in favor of it. Canada would also on the same occasion invite NATO members to Ottawa in order to talk about the Greece situation.
    • ​The United States acknowledges Canada as part of NATO, and pushes for NATO to intervene in the Greek Civil War in favor of the DKG.
    • Canada Diplomacy: PM Mackenzie King agree for an intervention, but refuse to send his troops there. He instead propose to sell military equipment cheap to the DKG and to force economic sanctions on countries supporting the Greek Communists.

  • Kurdistan's employment continues to rise as petroleum reserves are exploited. An oil and natural gas refinery is opened this year near Mosul and another rid under construction near Erbil. Exports of petroleum products begin to rise as access to British ports has been negotiated. The centrist National Party under Mahmud Barzanji wins the first national elections, and begins a policy of backing independence movements in French Syria, providing arms and training to Druze and Alawite militias and encouraging pro-Kurdish sentiment among them. The government begins subsidizing manufacturing and institutes assisted immigration plans for European (particularly German) manufacturers wishing to escape Allied restrictions on arms manufacturing. A former Volkswagen plant manager (and former Nazi) combines with a Kurdish sheikh to open a car manufacturing plant to produce cheap but versatile trucks (under the name Saladin Automotive), which are widely purchased by the government for military use. Seeing his success, another former Nazi industrialist partners with the government to begin producing machine guns, mortars and carbine rifles. The government asks to purchase military aircraft from anyone willing to sell, looking to buy around 50 fighters and 20 ground-strafing aircraft.
    • The United States offer to give economic aid to the Kurds to help them in any of their endeavors, the hope that they will help to prevent any threat of Communism in the Middle East.
    • Kurdistan would be happy to continue opposing the repressive influence of Communism and asks to purchase 100 Sherman tanks and 50 P-51 Mustang aircraft.
    • Kurdish Dip: The Kurdish government officially extends an offer of official recognition and protection to the three Churches of the East, offering their leaders the opportunity to relocate to Kurdistan from more repressive foreign countries. Privately, the government suggests to them that if they will promote pro-Kurdish sentiment among their followers, the Kurds will help them promote their interests in post-colonial Syria. Mod Response
    • Canada Diplomacy: We would like to ffer Kurdistan an enconomic partnership to the Kurdistan, and officially support Kurdistan autonomy and independence.
  • Italy: We offer our support to the democratic Greek government and begin V-2 strikes on Communist outposts.

    • The United States Accepts Italy as part of NATO
    • British Diplomacy: We recognise Italy as a member of NATO and form the British-Italian Nuclear Association or BINA.
  • Saudi Arabia: King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud is loved as a great leader for the successful new oil deal and alliance. The citizens love the SDP, especially as they hate Communism but also America and Liberal Europe. Saudi Arabia asks Spain, South Africa, and Siam to join the SDP. We boost our military using what is given to us by the Federation and the money from the oil. We also spread propaganda, especially in the British colonies of Bahrain and Qatar, which considers the British to be oppressors. On this path, we fund militant pro-independence groups in India and Malaya, though we send more money to India. We pass a law excluding exportation of oil to any non-SDP member. We seek a global autarky that is economically self-sufficient, and we try to increase the number of member nations in the SDP in order to make this possible. However, until then, we continue to trade with foreign nations, except not oil. We continue to expand our oil production, and also try to industrialize our cities, especially our capital at Riyadh and our other cities of Jeddah and Dammam. We ban Communist groups, and arrest any suspected Communists.
    • Saudi Arabia proposes Bidding to occur for the 1950 FIFA World Cup.
    • Federation Dip: We propose to put the 1950 Cup in the capital cities of all Federation members.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: sadly, our beloved leader, Josef Stalin dies this year, due to completions from a bad case of flu. He is immediately replaced by the much more light ruling leader, Vladimer Andronikov. While our new leader still believes Communism can work, he begins to switch to a more Socialist government, were some personal property or businesses can exist. Many small businesses are allowed to exist outside of the hands of the state, but larger businesses are still completely controlled by the state. Standard of living begins to increase, slowly but surly, with the economy opening up to people who wish to buy some personal property. In addition, he takes much of the power away from police to arrest and punish arbitrarily, and begins to introduce a trial system, though police are still considers far more oppressive than in the west. The military is partially demobilized, but investment in military tech does not. We work hard on creating a nuclear weapon, in order to deter any capitalist attack on our nation. In addition, we begin building up our Air force and Navy, recognizing that these two area are probably in bitter need of improvement. We accept China's offer from last year, and send them huge amounts of military equipment, food, and supplies, mostly over our land border. We begin funding various Communist movements throughout nations oppressed by imperialists, including, but not limited too, India, Indochina, and a majority of British Africa. We begin to pressure decolonization, and try to make it as hard as possible for the western powers to keep colonies.
    • Korea: The Korean government requests recognition from the USSR. We also request to exchange embassies.
    • the USSR agrees to recognize Korea, and and embassy exchange
  • The United Kingdom: We place martial law over the few areas of India that we still have some power in and ask the Indian de facto government if they would allow us to help them to stabilize the country after Gandhi's assassination. The British government has decided that they should partition the state of India at once but we would still would like to keep land in Asia in order to help the Republic of China during its military conflict. We hold a meeting with member states of NATO asking what would be the best solution to this problem. We do not wish to give away our colonies to the Dutch but do ask for their protection over them. The UK also is able to use resources collected from African colonies to boost our economy and we continue research into nuclear weaponry and war machines.
    • Indian National Congress: We thank the United Kingdom for its offer of stabilization and its offer of Partition and we accept both. We also offer to hold the Partition of India in New Delhi, India.
    • British Diplomacy: We accept India's offer and hold a meeting in New Delhi. We invite members of the EU and NATO to help decide on the borders of India, Pakistan, and British Asian colonies. We also will discuss how India will split from the UK and its new government.

    • Dutch Dip: We propose a trade in land. (Just click the link on my turn I posted).
    • Dutch Dip: It is really not our concern how India is dealt with, that is up to you. We will only join the EU if every nation on the continent of Europe does so, to make a unified continent.
  • Korea: The government looks to possibly relocate the capital to Kaesong because it is more center. The nation is split into thirteen provinces, a national capital, and five military districts. The military districts are near China and Japan. A fence is planned for the border with the PRC all the way up to the border with the USSR. The military begins maneuvers in the central part of the nation. Three naval bases are planned, on in Busan, one in Incheon, and in Donghae City. Agriculture is expanded especially in the north and industrialization continues in the south. Transportation begins to be focused on with rail lines planned to run through Busan, Ulsan, Kaesong, Pyongyang, Incheon, and Seoul. The government uses the money from the first payments from Japan on these upgrades. A lighthouse is planned for the Dokdo islands. Shipyards are planned by Samsung, and Hyundai for Incheon and Busan to build a navy and cargo ships.
  • Australian Commonwealth: Six months after the end of World War 2, the Australians continue to build their nation back up. With the threat of Communism rising in Asia, the Chifley plan. The plan is to assert Australian military dominance in the South Pacific and potential in Southeast Asia. It will take a while to begin to build up the Australian Navy to the size it needs to be to assert its dominance, but it will get there. We check and find the Australian Military is currently resting a strong 230,000 active personnel. The Australian Navy though currently consists of 430 active naval vessels ready for combat. Australia's Chif plan consists of building up the Cruisers and even building Aircraft Carriers. With two Aircraft carriers in active duty, the renamed ANS Melbourne and Sydney, we begin to construct two more. Completion of the aircraft carriers are planned to be complete by 1950. With two more to be laid down after that. Australia continues to ride the highs of post war economic highs, as well as an influx of immigrants from war torn countries in Europe and Asia. Australia is made to improve upon its infrastructure further to work on this. The islands of Guinea and New Zealand also see improvement seen upon them. Australia continues to put out feelers to various nations for possible trade and economic opportunities with other various nations. We begin aiding the British Empire in any means possible in Asia. We wish to open up trade with Saudi Arabia, to keep our trade of oil coming into out nation.

    • Australian Diplomacy: The Australians are glad the Canadians are willing to form a partnership with us. We gladly accept.
    • Saudi Arabia: We will definitely not trade oil with any non-SDP member. We also will not trade with Australia unless they withdraw from India.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. The technology captured in Operation Paperclip are secretly experimented with in an attempt to outpace Soviet and Axis development. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. President Harry S. Truman calls for an end to Mandatory Palestine, in accordance with the Peel Commission of 1938, and supports the creation of Israel. This decision struck an accord among the Jewish American population, ensuring Truman's victory at re-election in November this year in defiance of the Republican candidate Harold Stassen. The territories of Alaska and Hawaii are accepted as the 49th and 50th states.

In other economic news, we decide focus on building our economy to a point in which China can compete with other nations around the globe, and with the new streak of Russian supplies, we decide to distribute these to our more under equipped forces. However, another plan is sent into the planning stage to distract the enemy at Nanjing in order to help with Operation: Sharp Edge. The situation is taken into consideration, but Mao rejects the plan, fearing it would end in disaster and not have a big impact, instead awaiting for the final moments of the RoC to take Nanjing. However, he is unwilling to enact anything until negotiations succeed. In the meantime, though. He seeks aid from other Communist nations worldwide, and also pledges support for Malaysian and Indian independence.

With the explosion of post war crisis the Federation continues putting money towards independence movements particularly in India and now into Malaya as well. Federation citizens begins to show some unrest at the nations new position citing some un-wanted involvement into global politics. The nation itself shows some moderate industrial growth as the majority of development is put mostly into stable industries such as automotive, steel, aeronautics, and ship building. The Federation begins scheduling atlantic and pacific patrols for its carrier fleet but also makes the conscious decision on bringing battleships into the modern age if possible. The nations economy begins a major surge as products to various nations become dominant particularly in Spain, Saudi Arabia, and Cuba. this also comes along with the Federation maintaining now a major oil monopoly with Saudi Arabia. The research into rocketry and more advanced aeronautics continues as well. The Federation begins new research into small arms of all sorts looking to find its next generation rifle among other things. Battle group Lusitania begins to be outfitted for a potential hot spot in India (more to come later)
    • Korea: We request a trade agreement where non military ships from both of our nations may enter the others ports and sell certain goods without tariffs. We also request aid in developing our shipbuilding industries.
  • Japan: Major reforms continue to take place. A new constitution continues to be written and is finalised by the eleventh month. Meanwhile, huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. The military is abolished, and replaced with the Self-Defence Forces that are only, and only, to defend the nation. The military is forbidden from deploying forces, and doing anything else that is not defending. A ban on nationalist and far-right parties also takes place; and also any Japanese denying any war crimes will result in a big fine and a jail sentence (think OTL Germany having laws against Holocaust denial). Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama kindly declines in joining EATO, citing a move towards neutrality. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra and Portugal to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We request that they should join in the Iberian Union which would discuss issues between our nations and across the world. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We begin in secret, ways to enrich uranium. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace. We will begin industrialization and we begin to initiate tensions between the Berbers and the Arabic people so that they would not be independent. We will send people to Greece to see if there is any chance for a Fascist movement to be started (Mod).
    • Saudi Arabia asks Spain to apply to join the SDP. Spain would then have a large say in international politics, and be protected by becoming allied with the Federation and others, and help the Federation in the nuclear program.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask Spain to join the European Union. We think it would be a better investment than the SDP because it would allied with other European powers and be more informed about European politics.
    • Spain: The Spanish feel that the SDP offers more benefits than the European Union. We will join the SDP in return for mutual collaboration in our nuclear programs and allowing us mutually to build bases in each others countries.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation agrees and has voted to include you in on the SDP. The Federation looks forward to the future with its new Spanish ally.
  • Norway: We request to join NATO and we send trade agreements with Britain for oil. We promise to the NATO nations that if they need oil we will always supply them. We also set up oil rigs in remote places of Norway. We begin mass production of newly built machines such as televisions and automobiles. With further discovery of oil in Norway many motorcycle companies such as Tempo begin mass production of motorcycles.

Under the strong and charismatic influence of de Gaulle the right press for maintaining the colonial empire and restoring the glory of France while the left push for talks and demilitarizing after the chaos of occupation and liberation. Despite some sympathies for the left the strong legacy of the free French forces helps de Gaulle gain larger influence across France. Part of the right's plans include reinforcing garrisons across the colonies and figuring out how to deal with the German question. Efforts to restore French industry begin. French efforts to de-industrialize the French occupied Rhine continue. However, many political thinkers in France realize that at some point Germany will be needed to help restore European prosperity. Efforts ot stimulate smaller business and strategic industries are made by the government through subsidies. Paris agrees to join NATO but under reservations that D.C. will allow France to do as it sees fit within its own sphere. research into nuclear weapons continue to develop the weapon that helped win the war and to put the French on an equal footing with their American friends. France reasserts its ties with the allies and promises to help combat Communism wherever it might appear. Efforts to modernize the armed forces begin with research going into assault rifles, medium tanks, jet fighters, rocket technology, and into the construction of air craft carriers, though a balance between reconstruction and military expansion remains in the minds of policy makers. Military supplies are sent to the royalists to combat Communists in Greece.
  • French Dip: In secret the French government approaches Rio to try to discuss a return of its American colonies taking during the war.
  • British Secret Diplomacy: We are willing to aid the French in an effort to recover its lost American colonies if the need arises. But we will only be able to due so if the USA allows due to us being bound by the Monroe Doctrine.
  • Federation Dip: Due to the rather aggressive action we took during the war and an agreement with the United States we can return many of the Virgin Islands and Antilles Islands but refuse Guiana. We recommend outright decolonization of the Antilles Islands. We also offer to pay a fee for the French Guiana Territory to prevent any further issues from arising about it. The Federation also offers an apology for its role in the war against France and offers a one time payment that if accepted will work towards rebuilding the relations between South America and France.
  • French Dip: Paris agrees to the federation's proposal but requests that it be allowed to evacuate all nationals and any of the former subjects who wish to leave the region, as well as remove pieces of cultural and historical significance from French Guiana.

    • Madagascar: economic development of the colony begins.
    • French Syria and Jordania: Unlike the other colonies efforts to slowly disengage from the now volatile region begin, however, as efforts to strengthen the Alawite loyalists begin to keep a puppet regime in power and to curtail the ambitions of possible pan-Arabic groups. troops are placed near the border with Kurdistan to curtail the influence of the Middle Eastern democracy in the region. However, Paris makes it clear that it would be willing to cooperate with the Kurds if they do not go against French designs for the region.
      • Kurdistan points out to France that it cannot hope to hold Syria in the long term, and that Kurdistan it will continue to promote the interests of Kurds and allied minority alike the Assyrians and Druze, in Syria. The Kurds are open to discussion on Syria's long-term fate, however.
    • Philippines: We continue the First Economic Plan. We build some factories (focusing mainly on light industry, such as textiles) on its main urban centres. Agricultural output per capita is improved. We encourage migration to its major urban centres like Manila, Cebu, and Zamboanga. The government continues its massive purge of corrupt politicians. More money is invested in healthcare, and medical technology, infant mortality and life expectancy begin to show improvement.
      • Feud, how many factories do you think I can make in a six month period?
        • Not very many. Industrialization takes decades and you're not Japan. To get hundreds of factories is going to take a long time. Start with a few at a time. -Feud
        • I am well aware of the time it takes for a nation to industrialise and modernise.

We send hundreds of troops to fight the democracy in Greece. We would like to create the 'East European Union' which is for Communist nations, we invite the Soviet Union, Romania, Bulgaria, Communist Greece and any other Communist country to join it. We aid Communist revolutions in Turkey. We sell copper to our Communist friends. We aid Communist revolutions worldwide. We promote Communism in India. We promote Communism in British Africa and in other European Africans lands. We continue to rebuild after the shock of World War 2.
    • Romanian ip: We accept the trade of oil for copper for the mutual benefit of our nations. We agree on the East European Union idea, however, we must say that we propose the name 'Bucharest Pact'. We'd also like to join a joint Soviet-Yugoslav-Romanian development of a nuclear programme.
    • Bulgaria: We would like to join this joint nuclear program. Also we would like to be in the 'East European Union, but propose it be called the Moscow Pact, seeing as the Soviets are the strongest out of all of us.
    • Switzerland: Britain, Italy and Norway are accepted into the EU, becoming the first four (including Switzerland) to join. The first meeting of the EU is scheduled for 1949, unless anyone wants it at a later date. The main issues to be debated are" India, Apartheid in South Africa and European rebuilding efforts.

After these trials, México, still uneasy with the United States, looks to repair its relations with the US and the USSR. A diplomat is sent to the United States to improve the current diplomatic situation with them. About Nuclear technology is continued to be worked on non-stopped to create a weapon to protect the nation from foreign powers The situation in Greece is frowned upon, with the military being sent to nearby SDP member Turkey in case if the situation turns of the worst.

The Netherlands begins to suffer issues of insurgency in its Indonesian colonies with targeted attacks on its white settlers becoming more commonplace.

The threat of force from the Union of South Africa prevents local revolts in British colonies in Africa that it can reach.

The Greek Civil War heats up as alongside the Communist and democratic rebels a well organized Fascist military movement makes stunning offensives against both gaining ground in Southern Greece. The Communists, however, begin to become dominant due to the sheer volume of supplies and manpower funneled into the Communist rebels.

The Federation of the Americas has won the bid to host the 1950 FIFA World Cup

The Federation announces its intention to prevent non-responsible nations from acquiring nuclear weaponry - particularly the non-great power states

  • Romania: We announce our new leader, Gheorghiu Dej. We continue rebuilding our country. We begin the production of airplanes at our airplane facility. We announce our shift from Communism to Socialism, similar to the USSR's. We continue our endeavors from last year. We want to take part in a joint Soviet-Yugoslav-Romanian nuclear programme.
  • British West Africa: We improve our military and infrastructure while we build some more buildings in our four colonies. In our attention, We rule out 1950 FIFA World Cup in case of joining due to non-independent and British colonized countries. Meanwhile, we seek some British aircraft and tanks to come to our military and airbases - which could increase much better of British West Africa than not having more troops in our military bases.
    • Nigeria: Mil and infra.
    • British Senegal: Mil and infra.
    • British Togo: Mil and eco.
    • British Liberia: Eco and infra.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: sadly, our beloved leader, Josef Stalin dies this year, due to completions from a bad case of flu. He is immediately replaced by the much more light ruling leader, Vladimer Andronikov. While our new leader still believes Communism can work, he begins to switch to a more Socialist government, were some personal property or businesses can exist. Many small businesses are allowed to exist outside of the hands of the state, but larger businesses are still completely controlled by the state. Standard of living begins to increase, slowly but surly, with the economy opening up to people who wish to buy some personal property. In addition, he takes much of the power away from police to arrest and punish arbitrarily, and begins to introduce a trial system, though police are still considers far more oppressive than in the west. The military is partially demobilized, but investment in military tech does not. We work hard on creating a nuclear weapon, in order to deter any capitalist attack on our nation. The nuclear project is going well currently, and we think we will have a working nuclear weapon by early 1951. In addition, we begin building up our Air force and Navy, recognizing that these two area are probably in bitter need of improvement. We secretly begin to send aid to many Communist nations and revolutions across the globe. Most notably, we send large amounts of aid to Communist factions in China, and fund major Communist uprisings in the republic of China. In addition, funding is sent to Communist factions in Vietnam, Greece, Malaysia, and begin to try to create Communist factions in Pakistan, Egypt and Sudan, though these regions are funded to a lesser extent.
    • A direct communication from the United States ask for the USSR to negotiate a mutual nuclear non-proliferation agreement.
  • Switzerland: We begin the first meeting of the European Union, with the main issues being British Colonial insurgencies, Communism and the Greek Civil War. We invite Italy, Britain and Norway to the meeting to discuss these issues. We introduce military conscription for one year to defend against enemy nations. We begin promoting football to try to get past the qualifiers into the World Cup. We continue to aid reconstruction efforts in Europe, though the amount of aid is starting to decrease.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask Switzerland to create a page for the EU that only members are allowed to edit and discuss in.
    • French Dip: France requests possible acceptance into the European Union in the future.
    • Swiss Response: We have created a page for the EU(plan to edit to make it just one page instead of a 1949 meeting). http://althistory.wikia.com/wiki/1949_European_Union_Meeting_%28Dawn_of_War_Map_Game%29 . The first issue is European rebuilding. The second issue will be France joining the EU.
  • Canada: Mackenzie King continue to build new public buildings, providing more and more jobs to the growing Canadian population. Infrastructures are build to help population in need, and to diminish poverty. The PM order that the construction of Canadian fleet continue in both Atlantic and Pacific. Canada offer support to Mexico's idea of United Nations and want to strengthen relations between the two nations by offering commercial deals between the two nations. Mackenzie King go on visit in Mexico in order to show that Mexico is a civilized and peaceful nation. PM Mackenzie King also offer Australia a mutual exchange of military technologies and productions in order to strengthen their positions in the Pacific.
  • Saudi Arabia: We support the mainstream independence movement in Malaya. We also vote in favor of Spain's entrance into the SDP, and ask all member nations to do the same. We begin an education program, hoping to contribute to the Federation's nuclear program. We pledge to stay out of Greece, though we recommend Turkey to guard itself. We also are in favor of Indian independence, and hope that the British leave ALL of their Indian colonies. We continue to sell oil to the Federation, and also Spain. We gain money and weapons in return, and use the money to buy manufactured goods from the Federation and Spain. We hope to slowly industrialize Riyadh and Jeddah. We ask Britain to leave its colonies in the Arabian Peninsula, as they have no right to rule the people there. We spread pro-independence propaganda in those colonies.
    • British Diplomacy: The only reason we have colonies in the Middle East is because we are trying to protect the people there. Until hostilities end there we will not remove our colonial presence from the Arabian Peninsula.
    • If this is true, then abolish all missionary forces there and let them sell their oil to whomever they want.
    • British Diplomacy: We believe there should be religious freedom anywhere in the world, especially in the Middle East.
    • Saudi Arabia tolerates Christians, just does not like missionaries who are the West's way of religious imperialism and try to change other peoples' religion.
    • British Diplomacy: There is no way for us to prevent Christian missionaries from attempting to convert people to Christianity.
  • Italy: We continue production of weaponry. With our newly-rebuilt army we begin launching offensive strikes on Communist-held Greece based on the German Blitzkrieg model. We begin to work on the development of nuclear weapons. We begin experimenting on the use of a nuclear weapon in conjunction with a V-2 to create a powerful long-range weapon capable of remote destruction of entire cities. We begin funding public works projects such as roads and schools
  • The United Kingdom: We urge other countries that are present at the meeting on the Partition of India to vote on the terms presented. One side must have two thirds of the votes in order for the partition to take effect. We send troops and supplies to British West Africa but keep it at a minimum in order to ensure that the African colonies do not try to use our own weapons against us. We also have managed to grow in wealth but our economy is still very weak so we favor India's proposal of partition. We still do not consider the conflict in Malaya to be a major issue and send a few troops there and request Australia to help also. We begin making major nuclear developments thanks to our organisation BINA and we think we may be able to begin weapons tests in 1950 or 1951. We also begin sending help to French Indochina in order to prevent Communism from rising there and ask the other members of the EU to do the same.
    • Australian Diplomacy: We help the United Kingdom.
  • Republic of China: With the signing of the Kaesong Armistice, troops and artillery are rushed to a point just outside the DMZ. Massive fortification occurs all over the border.

Meanwhile, Troops and police forces are turned against the remaining Communist guerrillas. We begin to improve our relationships with France and the USA, and fund anti-Communist groups all throughout Asia.
  • France: Military expansion and modernization continues. Money is poured into military research mainly advanced aeronautics, nuclear development, and other experimental technology. An outline for a more advanced medium tank and for an assault rifle are made and put under review by the government. As political debates on the future of France and its empire continue the right gain more influence under the leadership of De Gaulle. With the increased military spending de Gaulle takes advantage of his status as a war hero to build support within the armed forces, something that scares the left and centre who wish to keep power out of the hands of a military man. Despite this fear of the right the government refuses to cooperate with the Communists out of fear of the left as well and their perceived weakening of the state during the beginnings of World War 2. Paris request loans from the USA. to help with economic development and reconstruction as the government tries to balance the budget. More resources are allocated to colonial development specially in North and West Africa where valuable resources such as oil can be found. On the diplomatic front Paris continues to send supplies to the democratic forces in Greece and offers to start supplying the nationalists in China in the hoeps of gaining an ally to help suppress the Vietnamese Communists in North Indochina.
    • Indochina: More troops are sent to Indochina and forces there are authorized to use any means necesary to suppress the Communist insurrection. Anti-Communist paramilitaries lead mainly by French-trained southerners of mixed ancestry namely from Saigon the colonial capital. This paramilitary forces are authorized are regulated by colonial officials but given some degree of autonomy. Major offences into North Vietnam are made to try to reassert control over the region.
      • Australian Diplomacy: In order to prevent the incursion of Communism in SE Asia, we send a bunch of troops to put down the insurgency in Indochina. We ask other members of the EATO to help.
      • US Dip: We ask the French government to consider granting Indochina independence as a free democracy, for the sake of the majority capitalists in the region.
      • French Dip: France declines for the time being and requests that the usa be discreet about their comments and keep it out of the press. Paris agrees to Australian support.

    • Syria and Jordan: talks with local leaders continue as arming of the alawites goes on in preperation for the eventual French withdrawal from the region. Strong emphasis is made on the need to make France's withdrawal look like a benevolent act rather then asa sign of weakness.
    • French secret Dip: Paris sends a private communication to London to discuss the possiblity of cooperation between the colonial empiresto curb nationalist movements in Asia and Africa and to determine the best possible course of action to prevent a loss of further power and influence.
      • British Diplomacy: We think that we should discuss further with our allies in France so we propose a meeting in Normandy to talk more about the future of our empires.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is still an issue in the nation. The PM is almost assassinated, due to the high rates of unemployment. Our scientists start to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland. Our military tries to stop all terrorist attacks in the nation. We give a speech out that we do not want anyone to get hurt.
    • Dutch Congo: We mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
  • Vietnam: Asks for an alliance with the PRC and the USSR. Hanoi is the de facto capital. Guerrilla warfare begins, and spreads to the South. We call upon Laos and Cambodia to rise up as well.
    • The USSR accepts the alliance with Vietnam, and continues to transport weapons, food, and other supplies to Communists in he region.
  • Kurdistancontinues to back Assyrian, Druze and Kurd groups in Syria, (secretly) arming them and helping them form centralized movements to advocate on their own behalf. Pro-Kurdish sentiment rises among the Druze and Assyrians, while many Assyrians move to Zaxo in Kurdistan where an Assyrian Legion is formed, armed and trained, numbering 10,000 initially. Conscription is implemented and the Kurdish government carries out a series of war games, simulating various defences of Kurdish territory, this year, mobilizing around 150,000 troops. The economy continues to grow with increased commercial ties with foreign countries, and subsidized manufacturing. New factories begin supplying small arms and artillery to the Kurdish military. The government looks to find a foreign partner to pipe Kurdish oil to larger market. Meanwhile, the leaders of the Syriac Catholic and Orthodox Churches are again offered subsidies and official recognition if they headquarter in Kurdistan. (Mod Responses)
  • Canada Diplomacy: We would be glad to finance your oil project. We will send engineers and financing as soon as you agree.
  • Kurdistan accepts the Canadian offer from last year and would be overjoyed for Canada to invest in Kurdish oil fields.
  • French Dip: Paris offers to invest in the oil fields and offers to demilitarize the common border between Kurdistan and the French Middle East to further economic ties in the region.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra and Portugal to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We request that they should join in the Iberian Unionwhich would discuss issues between our nations and across the world. (Mod) We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We begin, in secret, ways to enrich uranium. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace. We will begin industrialization and we begin to initiate tensions between the Berbers and the Arabic people so that they would not be independent. We will secretly continue to supply weapons, ships and tanks to the Fascist movement in Greece and we will allow “volunteer”brigands to form in Spain for this conflict. (Mod).
    • Portugal (MOD): We decline, we refuse to lose our sovereignty and our superior colonial empire to a nation that is economically weaker than we are, and part of a different alliance system.
  • Korea: The government begins subsidizing Samsung and Hyundai in the construction of the shipyards. Work on the southern factories and agriculture in the north continues as does work on railroads and road systems to connect the whole country. Damage to the power plants in the north including hydroelectric dams, coal-fired power plants, and gas-fired plants has been repaired in the year. Damage to the power grid remains, and the only steady supply of electricity is to Seoul, Pyongyang, Incheon, and Busan. After a long discussion between the KNP, the DNP, and the KWP, it is agreed that the capital will remain in Seoul until Kaesong is built up. Incheon and Kaesong will encompass the National Capital District, and Seoul will be developed as the technological center of Korea. The Navy begins to plan a new class of destroyer to be built in the shipyards, and Samsung has planned to build machine guns, naval cannons, and radar systems for the Navy. The Kaesong Accords begin in the city with many other nations arriving by air to Gimpo International Airport, and then are driven to Kaesong by car.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. The technology captured in Operation Paperclip are secretly experimented with in an attempt to outpace Soviet and Axis development. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. To prevent further civil conflict in global colonies, America urges the European nations to grant independence to democratic governments, particularly in the case of Indonesia and Palestine. Seeing the threat of Communism in Indochina, congress authorizes to send thousands of US military into Indochina to put down the rebellion of Ho Chi Minh. All the nations of EATO are asked to help put down the insurgency. Intervention in the Greek Civil War continues, devoting more volumes of American industry to outmatch the Communist rebels.
    • ​US Dip: We ask the Nordic/Germanic nations of West Germany, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland to join NATO.
    • Korean Dip: We decline to deploy troops to Indochina due to reconstruction efforts.
  • Australian Commonwealth: The Australian Navy has reached a total of 462 vessels this year - an impressive stat for the Oceanic continent-nation. Another 10,000 strong able bodied soldiers are added to the Australian Army, totaling in at 240,000 strong. We continue to build up our infrastructure to take in refugees fleeing from the war torn areas of Indonesia, Malaysia, and even some escaping from Indochina. This influx brings in a new group of Dutch, French, English, and some Southeastern Asia demographics to the continent. The construction of our two new aircraft carriers seem to be on schedule and will make the 1950.
    • New Zealand:
    • Papua New Guinea: Our Army has increased to 50,000.
    • Canada Diplomacy: PM Mackenzie King would like to offer Australia a mutual exchange of military technologies and productions in order to strengthen their positions in the Pacific.
    • Australian Diplomacy: We agree to the Canadian exchange.
  • British Malaya: Two conventions are set up in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. The convention in Kuala Lumpur drafts a Declaration of Independence and the convention in Singapore drafts an Ultimatum to the crown if they wish to avoid conflict. We prepare for an impending war.
    • British Diplomacy: We capture Malaysian insurgents in Singapore and surround the area in order to protect the people there from any more attacks from the Anti-British Malaysians.
  • Bulgaria: We start to industrialize, an oil refinery is built, and factories are constructed. We pour much of our resources into the Communist rebellion in Greece.
  • People's Republic of China: With the end of the Chinese Civil War, reconstruction efforts begin in affected areas. The PLA begins setting up guard posts and fortifications along the DMZ, preparing for a scenario in which war would come again. With Operation: Sharp Edge remaining unexecuted, we decide to update it for recent events, this time with the objective of taking Beijing and Taipei. However, this is updated to take into account Soviet support for a time when they can match the Americans in nuclear capability. In economic news, we begin to build up our economics, and expand our industrial capabilities to compete with the RoC. An effort to commence the mining industry in Inner Mongolia begins in order to benefit our economy and a manufacturing industry is set in place in the Shanghai area as well as other coastline areas. This allows for some level of economic growth and provides our people the necessary cash in Yuans needed to maintain our economy flowing. However, Mao also adds in additional strength, fearing the outbreak of war once more to be a potential concern. However, he does have doubts about the possibility of a second war with the RoC and decides to call for negotiations to add for democratic elections, scheduled for 1954 separate from the Kaesong Accords.
    • Korea: We are encouraged about the continued negotiations, but call for them to be overseen by a neutral third party to prevent fraud, intimidation and corruption.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama puts more funding towards rebuilding and welfare.
  • East Germany: Following the end of the war a new government is established by the Socialist Unity Party led by Wilhelm Pieck. Under the new regime suspected Nazi's and Fascists are rounded up and put into forced labor camps. Reconstruction efforts begin and industry is nationalized. We ask the USSR for economic aid and send old German weapons to help the Communist effort in Greece.
  • The USSR agrees to give economic aid to East Germany, and suggests an alliance between our nations.
  • Norway: We test our first ever jet powered rocket in remote parts of the Norwegian state of Troms and Finnmark. Many of the prototypes failed miserably and some succeed. Infrastructure is improved throughout the country. Rebuilding efforts still continue in Norway and we improve welfare.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation begins notable development of its first combat worthy jet aircraft replacing many of its prop driven planes. The F-108 Phantom is released as the Federations next generation fighter with the ability to mount rockets, bombs, and hosts two .50 caliber machine guns as its primary dogfighting implements. The Federation also begins the development of a new type of Battleship, the Colombia class, which will be the modern version of a battleship and is expected to last decades. The first ship will remain as a test for launching the remaining ships for the future. Steel and other heavy manufacturing capabilities continue to increase as the Federation begins to rival the US in certain production quotas particularly in Steel. The Federation continues to prepare a battlegroup to send to India and it currently is to begin consisting of 15 destroyers, five cruisers, five frigates, two battleships, and two fleet carriers. The federation marine also begin training missions to increase their operational capacity outside of its currently western focus. The Nations continues educational funding to put both Spanish and Portuguese as the main languages in order to foster communal cultural and spirit. The Federation begins its work to evacuate the Caribbean in accordance with the agreement with the US gradually pull out troops. The Federation also begins major pushes to advance its nuclear technology upping its testing timetable to 1950 and viable weapons by 1951. The tanks fielded by the Federation begin to diverge from German designs pushing for heavy and medium tanks but also pushing more sloped armor and a standard gun. The Federation also begins to look to transfer certain French colonies back into their own administration (Virgin Islands and such). The nation begins preparation to host the 1950 FIFA World Cup modifying existing stadiums heavily to host the championchip. The Federation continues to push for Indian independence and immediately send advisors to deal with the new Indian leadership. A federation battlegroup consisting of 2000 marines, two battle cruisers, five destroyers, and a few troops ships and five submarines is deployed around Saudi Arabia to control the developing hotspot and promote co-operation with our new ally. The Federation continues rocketry and aeronautics research but notable public aeronautics takes a front space opening multiple new aviation companies all devoted to civilian air travel with new jet airliners. The Federation shows notable economic growth pushing about 4.2% exceeding expectations of about 3.5% This is rationalized to have come from the large increase in stable industrial growth rather than reliance on certain industries like Oil and arms dealing though these are still significant. The Federation notices the same trend of a baby boom as well and sends analysts to the United States on official business to conduct research on the "baby boom" phenomena. The Federation re-organizes much of its special operation brigade into multiple special forces units. The Navy gains the Espadas, the Army gains the Rangers, The Air force gains the Paratooper corps, and the Marines gain the Amphibious Shock Corps. The Federation officially agrees to join the United Nations.
  • The Federation of India: Freedom! After six months of negotiations with the United Kingdom, the Federation and other nations are finally free of British rule and are now officially single, independent nations, now free to make our own decisions and forge our own destiny. We establish ourselves as a democracy, and our government is modeled after the Federation of the Americas. We are now the most populated and united country in the world, and our populace has a surge in national morale, and the Indian National Congress uses this to encourage our population to go to work in rebuilding our nation after the war and the pro-Independence riots. This national morale boost leads to an increase in national productivity, as the populace works to improve the industry and infrastructure of the nation, and government funding is put into improving the infrastructure of India, improving and building roads, railroads, schools, hospitals, houses, canals, etc., and building up industry in order to help with improving and building infrastructure, resulting in a surge of employment and an economic boom. We seek investment for industry and infrastructure from foreign nations as well as advisors. The INC prepares for military buildup and democratic elections.
    • British Diplomacy: Congratulations India! We propose a trade agreement and alliance between us, the United Kingdom, and the Federation of India.
    • Méxican Dip: We ask you to consider applying for the Southern Defense Pact, the Alliacne supplies oil, military protection, and nuclear research.
    • British Diplomacy: We are capable of providing the same as the SDP, even more if needed. We also would like to keep on good terms with India and we feel that if you were to join the Southern Defense Pact it would strain our relations because most members of the SDP are anti-British.
    • Romanian Dip: In behalf of the Soviet Union, we ask you to join the Moscow Pact, as we provide both protection, nuclear advancement and oil, but with the population becoming richer, not being poor as it is now because of British colonialism.
    • Yugoslavian Dip: Also wishes you to become Communist and join the Moscow Pact, or you could dwell in the past.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation of the Americas offers advisors, access to modern military equipment, will offer investment into Indian industry and infrastructure projects and most importantly agrees to treat India as an equal and free peoples within the Southern Defense Pact. The movement towards this sphere give you a powerful third option in which you will not be governmentally pressured towards a certain ideology and the promotion of the welfare of your people will be one of the top priorities alongside your own defense.
  • Democratic Provisional Government of Greece: Nikolaos Zachariadis, General Secretary of the KKE, arrests Markos Vafiadis, a military leader of the DPG and now former President of the Provisional Government, and puts him under house arrest. The reason for Zachariadis' actions were disagreements between him and Vafiadis regarding military matters. Nikolaos declares himself President of the Provisional Government and head of the Democratic Army of Greece. Under Nikolaos, the DSE, or Democratic Army of Greece, implements the use of the conventional style of warfare, rather than using guerrilla tactics. This switch in tactics is helped by the increase in supplies from Yugoslavia, the PRC, and the Soviet Union, as well as other places. The DSE makes advances against the Fascists and the DKG, but the Civil War remains largely a stalemate. Zachariadis, as President of the Provisional Government, supports a more nationalist version of Communism in the nation, rallying the people's spirits.
    • Korea: The Workers Party of Korea announces their support for the Communist politically, and the rest of the government releases a statement requesting a peaceful outcome to the situation and for all parties to avoid conflict at all cost.
  • Second Méxican Empire: Maximilian III along with the rest of the nation continues to recover from the Second World War. The Nuremberg trials shock the nation, learning of the atrocities of Nazi leaders and of such. Maximilian III says in a speech short afterword "What the Nazi high command has done to the Jewish population is ... Unspeakable." After these trials, México, still uneasy with the United States, looks to repair its relations with the US and the USSR. A diplomat is sent to the United States to improve the current diplomatic situation with them. Nuclear technology is continued to be worked on non-stop to create a weapon to protect the nation from foreign powers Troops put into Greece last year are sent to secure Athens and the surrounding area to help the Fascist faction taking control.México sends military aid into Malaya and recognizes the newly independent state. India is also recognized, and is asked to apply to the the SDP. [Mil/Eco]
    • Federation Dip: The Federation requests Mexico make their decision on accepting Spain as a member of the SDP or not.
  • Philippines: Chinese diaspora in the Philippines with relatives in China are begging their relatives to come back home due to Communist threats. Those who do bring a fair amount of capital to the country. Due to the fear of China becoming Communist (eventually posing a threat), we begin to industrialise and build our heavy industries. We aid democratic forces in the Vietnam by giving them not only military aid, but also war supplies, helping our country industrialise. GDP growth (per six months) is estimated to be 5%. Agricultural output per capita is improved, and more money is invested in healthcare, causing our life expectancy to grow, which is already one of the highest in Asia. Infrastructure is further developed on its Capital Region. We ask the United States (our ally) to send us economic aid and allow them to deploy more troops on Philippine soil.
    • For those people who don't know that much economics, 5% growth per six months is completely plausible. Japan, Korea, Singapore, and many more countries including OTL Philippines have achieved it.
    • You're good - no worries. Just don't expect 5% growth for more than a few decades if the leadership keeps up. This growth will eventually fall off into a more usual pattern of 2-3.5%
    • The United States agrees to send economic aid.
    • I do know the "usual" pattern, but this is export-oriented industrialisation, and higher growth rates are more common in countries following this type of development (e.g Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, and today China, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia). I also do know that once it reaches a higher stage of development the economy starts to slow down, so don't worry, I won't make its economy grow so fast that it is ASB.

Yugoslavia: We take part in the Soviet-Yugoslavian-Romanian nuclear program. We join the Moscow Pact. We aid the Communists in the Greek Civil War. We build our military. We refuse to drop Communism and become Socialist. We plan to make our own nuclear bombs with Bulgaria, Romania and Communist Greece, in 1970 or maybe earlier. We aid Communist rebels in British Malaya and Vietnam. We build our infrastructure. We build our infrastructure and technology. We plan to annex Albania in the future.

  • British Diplomacy: There are no rebels in the British African colonies but we will happily accept your military supplies there.
  • He's kindling Rebels so don't be so happy yet. -Feud
  • Romanian Dip: What is it about North Africa?

1949.5

July 24th 1949: The United Nations officially gains endorsement of the Great Powers of the United Kingdom, the Federation of the Americas, and the Second Mexican Empire giving it a solid base of Founding. Many peoples of many nations overwhelmingly support such and initiative with the populations of the United States, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, India, The entirety of the Balkans and Turkey. Many other nations are expected to Join


The Greek civil war continues to advance with the Communists claiming victory in the north, and a now coalition of the Fascists and democratic forces attempting to make offensives into the north.


The United States and the Federation both experience the Baby Boom Phenomena. Research done by both nations' sociologists and demographers believe this has something to do with both nations post war handling of soldiers returning to their countries. A Result of this are both nations seeing a large increase of Suburban populations creating the suburban phenomena as well.


The British, Federation and USSR all continues their development of nuclear weapons with their individual programs expected to yield a result in 1951.


Ho Chi Minh sees support flood to his military forces and sees major success in holding the north much to the surprise of US and French analysts. (Quality of equipment changes to 3) The nation from now on will be referred to as North Vietnam. Major military successes against this guerrilla enemy will be hard to achieve in almost all instances


Some pushes for an allied or puppeted Malaya by the minority in the British parliament look to form enough political support for the Malaysian Federation with the inclusion of Borneo and Singapore.


The Kaesong Accords leads to an armistice in the Chinese Civil War and splits the nation into two parts: the Communist PRC and the Democratic ROC with the ROC maintaining a good majority of the Chinese population. The ROC, however, sees some unrest as the accords are seen as a major political defeat of the ROC

  • Romania: We continue our rebuilding programm, and our investments from last year. We support Communist rebels in Greece and in Vietnam. We also begin to build up our army and navy. We ask the USSR if we should join the UN.
  • The United Kingdom: We also experience the strange baby boomer phenomenon. Ever since we gave India independence our GDP has been rising due to items from the country are more rare now and much more costly. We also have many more job opportunities for citizens of the UK. We ask the USA for a place to test our nuclear weapons in as early as January of 1951. BINA looks into the possibility of space exploration. We ask all European nations to look at the EU page and if they are listed as proposed members (and even if they aren't) we would ask that you consider joining. We especially would like for the Netherlands and the Republic of Ireland to join. We also send military support to the democratic parties in Greece and French Indochina and we encourage British citizens to join the army and aid the nations in these conflicts causing our army to grow substantially. Question for Mod: What do you mean about Malaya being puppeted or allied by us? Can you please explain?
    • OTL British tried to puppet a lot of former colonies to have the benefit of their power and market without having to maintain and support them too much. Also I'd like to point out I said 1951. 1951 means 1951 not earlier on your nuclear program. ... -Feud
    • British Diplomacy: So can I turn the Malaya colony into a puppet state? And sorry about 1951, it's just we that have the UK, Italy and the entirety of the EU working on the nuclear program but I will respect you and keep it at 1951 since that is the date you set :)
    • Malaya currently has a player, and overall you can try to do something of that sort, but there is 0 guarantee the new government or the people will roll with it. Its a gamble you could try on another colony that isn't as important. -Feud
    • Kurdistan, despite its admiration and respect for many of the UK's values, expresses its concern about the stated British intent to not decolonize its Middle Eastern colonies. It points out this is likely inevitable and more likely to go well if it occurs with British consent than as a result of popular outrage at continued colonization.
    • British Diplomacy: We thank Kurdistan for their concern but we are not leaving the Middle East until the Federation of the Americas does so. Also we would like to sell weaponry to your nation.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. The technology captured in Operation Paperclip are secretly experimented with in an attempt to outpace Soviet and Axis development. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. To prevent further civil conflict in global colonies, America urges the European nations to grant independence to democratic governments, particularly in the case of Indonesia and Palestine. The US Defense Department organizes more strategic offenses against North Vietnam and North Greece. In Vietnam, the US navy sets up a blockade in the South China Sea to prevent any Soviet supplies from getting to the Viet Cong, for which we ask the navies of Australia and China to help. Meanwhile, an EATO coalition occupies Hanoi and prevents any organized resistence there, with French permission. In Greece, a few US naval bases are set up to protect the region from Communist attack, while the Democratic Greek government mounts their invasion of the north. The US government supports the creation of the United Nations, and suggests its headquarters in either London or New York. In the Middle East, the US offers to buy oil from the Shahdom of Iran in exchange for improving their industry and military (mod response).
    • ​US Dip: We ask the Nordic/Germanic nations of West Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland to join NATO.
  • Canada: Mackenzie King officially announce that Canada will endorse the United Nations, like many, and send his diplomats to Mexico. The military exchange between Canada and Australia prove to be a great help for the economy and the army, who now have new equipments for the navy. Mackenzie King continues his social programs as well as the construction of a proper Canadian Navy. Since India broke negotiations, we refuse to recognize the nation independence. Canada send engineers and finances to the Kurdistan. PM Mackenzie King go on a personal visit to Kurdistan, and express his desire to sell weapons to the Kurdistan in order to help the nation protect its autonomy. Even if Canada isn't the USA, it is still a good deal.
    • British Diplomacy: We would like to trade oil with Canada. In return we will help them to improve their navy.
    • Kurdistan would be eager to buy weapons from Canada, and requests to make initial purchases of 100 Sherman tanks and 60 Hurricane fighters. It also offers Canadian manufacturers subsidies to invest in Kurdish industry, especially arms and petrochemicals.
  • Italy: We continue in our nuclear development, and propose to BINA (Which we propose renaming to the ETA (European Technological Alliance)) the possibility of using modifications of old rocket technology to launch larger craft longer distances. We continue our experimentation with V-2s. We start researching how old military tech can be updated, looking specifically at tanks and anti-tank weapons. We begin to pull back on military production (outside V-2s), and move those who had been working in wartime production into rebuilding Italian infrastructure and fortification. We send delegates to the UN meeting in Mexico.
  • France: Military expansion and modernization continues. Money is poured into military research mainly advanced aeronautics, nuclear development, and other experimental technology. An outline for a more advanced medium tank and for an assault rifle are made and put under review by the government. As political debates on the future of France and its empire continue the right gain more influence under the leadership of De Gaulle. With the increased military spending de Gaulle takes advantage of his status as a war hero to build support within the armed forces, something that scares the left and centre who wish to keep power out of the hands of a military man. Despite this fear of the right the government refuses to cooperate with the Communists out of fear of the left as well and their perceived weakening of the state during the beginnings of World War 2. Paris request loans from the USA to help with economic development and reconstruction as the government tries to balance the budget. More resources are allocated to colonial development specially in North and West Africa where valuable resources such as oil can be found. On the diplomatic front Paris continues to send supplies to the democratic forces in Greece and offers to start supplying the nationalists in China in the hoeps of gaining an ally to help suppress the Vietnamese Communists in North Indochina. Troops move to break Vietnamese rebels.
    • Indochina: More troops are sent to Indochina and forces there are authorized to use any means necessary to suppress the Communist insurrection. Anti-Communist paramilitaries lead mainly by French-trained southerners of mixed ancestry namely from Saigon the colonial capital. This paramilitary forces are authorized are regulated by colonial officials but given some degree of autonomy. Major offences into North Yietnam are made to try to reassert control over the region.
      • Algeria: Strong efforts are made to increase the Franconization of Algeria as to balance local culture with French to help build a foundation for further integration. Development of infrastructure begins to make transportation through the large area easier and to improve communication with the interior.
      • North and West Africa: economic development of the region continues and the militaries presence in the region continues to grow in an effort to curb any possible outbreaks of pro-independence groups.
      • Syria and Jordan: talks with local leaders continue as arming of the Elawites goes on in preparation for the eventual French withdrawal from the region. Strong emphasis is made on the need to make France's
  • Switzerland: Following the 1949 EU meeting, Switzerland officially enters the European Nuclear Agreement and aids in the development of European nukes. Switzerland begins sending aid packages to Greece in the Greek Civil War and promote peace talks. Switzerland also begins sending soldiers to combat Communist forces in the Greek Civil War. (MOD RESPONSE NEEDED)We request all the nations on the following page join the EU: http://althistory.wikia.com/wiki/The_EU_%28Dawn_of_War_Map_Game%29#Proposed_Members. We promote education and enforce required schooling until the age of 16.
  • British West Africa: We improve the military and economy, during the construction of an airbase, it seems it may be done, but there might not be a development for aircraft and tanks, which we don't want to take much risk of it. The troops recruited, but warned not to use British weapons. The navy, began to build as some other construction is still in progress.
    • Nigeria: Mil and eco.
    • British Togo: Mil and eco.
    • British Senegal: Mil and infra.
    • British Liberia: Mil and eco.
  • Saudi Arabia: We begin by proposing the Charter of the SDP, and let the Fedeation edit it. We vote in favor South Africa's aplication to the SDP, and hope the other members (Turkey and Mexico) vote in favor of the Charter, South Africa's application, and Spain's application. We wait to join the UN until the SDP resolution regarding the UN is passed. We continue to work on improving our education system and the industrialization of Jeddah and Riyadh. We ask Britain, once again, to leave its Middle Eastern colonies, suggesting to them a gradual decolonization. However, in case conflict occurs as it has in Indochina and Malaya, we begin to improve our military in case of a possible Communist insurgency or independence uprising. We offer the Federation land for military bases: One naval base on the Arabian Sea, one on the Red Sea; Two air force bases; and three army/marines bases. We hope these bases will protect our people, and especially the Arabs. We also continue to spread pro-independence propaganda in the colonies to ensure that the British cannot convince people to provide for the British in an unfair deal.
    • British Diplomacy: We will not be leaving our colonies in the Middle East any time soon due to the increasing number of SDP and Federation military there. Also I do not remember South Africa ever stating that they wished to join the SDP.
    • Dutch Dip: We ask for an alliance and for some of your oil.
    • Saudi Arabia to Britain: First of all, South Africa applied, on their own, to the SDP. Ask Wrto. Second of all, Would you actually decolonize if the SDP demilitarized in the Middle East? I don't think so. My proof? You didn't when I asked you to the last two turns. Therefore, we are trying a different method.
    • Saudi Arabia to Netherlands: We have pledged to only sell oil to SDP members, so we cannot sell oil to you. We also feel uncomfortable allying with a NATO-aligned country. We will, however, be willing to sign a non-aggression pact and a trade agreement, just we cannot include oil in trades.
    • British Diplomacy: You have proved yourself to be a safe and stable nation now but we will only withdraw from the Middle East if the SDP, more specifically, the Federation of the Americas demiliterise their forces in the area.
    • Saudi Arabia feels it necessary to have the Federation's aid involved for two main reasons. First, We'd like an easy way for them to help in case, if/when you leave, a civil war were to break out in a bordering nation, especially to prevent Communism from affecting the country. Second, we hoped that it would speed up the process of your decolonization, as our old, peaceful methods were not working. Finally, we were scared that should war break out in Southern Arabia, we would be unable to trade with other SDP members, which would be especially damning to our economy because of our exclusive oil pact. Again, we support a gradual decolonization of your Middle Eastern colonies.
    • British Diplomacy: We will not decolonise until they demiliterise. And South Africa has not even posted on this map game yet so how exactly could they apply for the SDP?
    • Federation Dip: We accept these basis and immediately begin using our battlegroup and the 2000 man marine unit to builf a forward operating base, particularly an airfield for us to ship in equipment. This base is located in Jeddah and will be the First Federation Naval Base.
    • South Africa applied on their own. Ask Wrto.
    • Saudi Arabia: Proposes the Riyadh Conference to negotiate issues in the Middle East.
    • British Diplomacy: Fine I believe South Africa applied but next time I think it should be put on the map game just to be fair. Sorry for my stubbornness.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We start a space program in the nation.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
      • British Diplomacy: We request for you to join the EU. Do you accept?
    • East Germany: Following the end of the war a new government is established by the Socialist Unity Party led by Wilhelm Pieck. Under the new regime suspected Nazi's and Fascists are rounded up and put into forced labor camps. Reconstruction efforts begin and industry is nationalized. We accept the USSR's offer of an alliance.
  • Federation of the Americas: With the creation of the United Nations the Federation begins organizing various diplomats and offices for the organization. With issues arising between the British and the Saudis once again the Federation invests heavily into developing its bases in Saudi Arabia heavily developing its new Naval bases in Jeddah and its second base in Jubail. The Jeddah and Jubail bases are heavily built up to house at least a Single fleet carrier if needed and the Jeddah base maintains A federation battlegroup consisting of 2000 marines, two battle cruisers, five destroyers, and a few troops ships and five submarines as the initial deployment to the Jeddah naval base. The Jubail naval base for the time being houses five Frigates, three Destroyers, and a Single Cruiser for the time being. The remainder of the bases are put in Mecca and Medina each capable of housing nearly 10,000 troops when at full capacity paired with two air force bases, with a final base built in Duba with a usual force of about 5000 but is designated a powerful forward operating base to deploy and co-ordinate an entire Army if needed. The Federation continues to push its new industrial economy heavily with development of aeronautics, automotive, steel, and Shipbuilding the primary industries with many other beginning to catch up. Technology in general begins to show up as well with TV's and other technological implements becoming cheaper and more commonplace. The Air force continues to develop and deploy more jet fighters to replace prop driven air craft. However, with the development of further jet aircraft, the new prop driven B-35 Tempest is released becoming the main strategic and heavy bomber of the Federation. With the noticeable baby boom the Federation population has grown to an estimated 138 million with further increases to push it to nearly 144 million by 1955. The promotion of bi-culturalism continues heavily with a good majority of the next generation being bi-lingual in Spanish and Portuguese and having been educated and adopted both facets of culture. The Federation to spite the United Kingdom in its pull out of the Caribbean returns some of the Antilles Islands that were British to the French and wholesale grants Jamaica independence guaranteeing it from further attempts at conquest or subjugation. The Federation begins a major push in its land capabilities adopting the new EH-T5 heavy tanks, and the EM-T3 medium tanks into service. It also brings out prototype Intantry fighting vehicles with a 20 mm autocannon specifically designed for the vehicle. The Federation continues work on its modern Battleship, The Federation navy also continues to expand, adding five new Netuno Class cruisers, ten new Frigates, and ten new Destroyers putting official numbers of the navy at 342 ships. The Federation continues to send support to India. The nation begins an internal infrastructure project building a highway system through the country connecting all the major cities and utilizing many of the established major roads through the Amazons. The Federation also begins to show major promise as a huge export driven economy with its raw natural resources heavily driving its GDP growth and its own internal industrial growth. The Federation GDP reaches about $265.7 billion. The Federation officially puts all EU nations on the watch list increasing their threat rating significantly except France, offering to retain an amiable and friendly relationship with the French.
    • ​Just going to mention here that under plausible circumstances, Saudi Arabia would not allow 'Non Muslim' Federation soldiers inside Makkah or Madina. ~Rimp
    • Military bases of this sort are traditionally located away from the the cities proper in response to strategic bombing concerns and collateral damage. The Bases are technically IN both cities, but are not physicially inside them. The Bases are located nearby the cities and are essentially now Federation land nearby both cities with bases on them. So your concerns are valid and knowing how modern military bases work ive taken this into account -Feud
  • Australian Commonwealth: The Australian Navy has reached a total of 462 vessels this year - an impressive stat for the Oceanic continent-nation. However, we've begun decommissioning many of our outdated vessels to make room for more updated models. The decommissioned ships are up for sale or can be used for scrap metal to build on other ships or other materials. Another 10,000 strong able bodied soldiers are added to the Australian Army, totaling in at 250,000 strong. We continue to build up our infrastructure to take in refugees fleeing from the war torn areas of Indonesia, Malaysia, and even some escaping from Indochina. This influx brings in a new group of Dutch, French, English, and some Southeastern Asia demographics to the continent. The construction of our two new aircraft carriers seem to be on schedule and will make the 1950. We ask to join the UN. We also continue to support the British Empire in Malaysia and India. Along with the aid of the French in Indochina.
  • New Zealand: Our Army has increased to 60,000.
  • Papua New Guinea: Our Army has increased to 55,000.
  • Federation Dip: The Federation extends a diplomatic hand to the Australian Commonwealth looking to warm relations with other members of the British commonwealth.
  • Norway: We start sending Aid to the democratic nation in Greece sending weapons, financial aid and oil. We continue our rebuilding efforts in all affected countries of WW2 and we continue our research on Rocket technology as we send our recent discoveries in rocket technology to the ETA. We continue testing our rockets and most of them succeed, we also test our first ever missile prototypes. As usual, most of them fail but one missile exploded in mid air proving to be a success. We start mass production of navy ships and new tanks compatible for the Greeks to use.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama puts more funding towards rebuilding and welfare. With a shift towards neutrality, Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama refrains from having Japan join the UN. The UN also has little to no support among the population.
  • Democratic Provisional Government of Greece: President Zachariadis of the Provisional Government and head of the DSE coordinates offenses towards the cities of Ioannina and Larissa, in Epirus and Thessaly respectively. The de facto capital of the Provisional Government officially becomes Thessaloniki, the largest city currently under the possession of the country. Seeking to improve the legitimacy of the government, Zachariadis decides to officially declare the People's Republic of Greece, claiming control over the entirety of Greece. Elections are held within the KKE, Zachariadis being reelected to his former positions again, but with more legitimacy. President Zachariadis requests to open embassies in the capitals of the all nations who have helped their side in the Greek Civil War as of yet, as well as any neutral nation who is willing to recognize the People's Republic of Greece.
  • North Vietnam declares independence as the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, and a massive guerrilla offensive begins, with the goal of forcing the Americans to leave Hanoi. Ho Chi Minh relocates to the Mountains, where he calls upon both Laos and Cambodia to rise up and join Vietnam in liberating themselves from the French Yolk. (mod response) General Vo Nyguyen Giap is made commander-in-chief of the Viet Cong.
  • BTW, how many troops can I have?
  • Philippines: We demand that all Chinese with family ties with any Philippine citizen is to be moved to the Philippines. We demand an apology for Japanese warcrimes done to the Philippine people and would want to trade with the Japanese. We use the economic aid from the United States to rebuild key infrastructure damaged during the war. Due to the fear of a Communist China and a strong Japan, we plan to build a large industrial base centred on exporting large amounts of labor-intensive manufactured goods, in which the Philippines could potentially developed a competitive advantage on. We continue exporting supplies to democratic forces in Vietnam, and our commodity trade volume rises. GDP per capita (adjusted to 2000 Int.$) is estimated to be $1,104, currently the third highest in Asia, after Japan and Singapore. Agricultural output per capita is improved and most of the excess economic aid is to improve healthcare. We ask the United States (our ally) to send us more economic aid, and to deploy more troops in our maritime borders with other countries.
  • I do not know whether at this time the Philippines is third or second in terms of GDP per capita in Asia at this time, but I presume third since Singapore is smaller in terms of population and less damaged by Japan?
  • GDP going off my information is 1,070 as of 1950 ill adjust as needed, accelerated growth will be accounted for and ill put you a 1104 for 1950. if you want to go through GDP numbers i will do all the calculation to prevent issues and claiming things higher than they are. As for GDP size your probably pushing Second as Singapore isn't independent yet. -Feud
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama deeply apologises to the Philippine people for all the evil and disgusting things Japan did back during the war; and sympathises with the Philippine people; and offers to pay war reparations, at the price Philippines suggests. Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama also accepts the trade deal.
  • Kurdistan continues to back Assyrian, Druze and Kurd groups in Syria, helping them form centralized movements to advocate on their own behalf. Pro-Kurdish sentiment rises among the Druze and Assyrians, while many Assyrians move to Zaxo in Kurdistan where an Assyrian Legion is formed, armed and trained, numbering 10,000 initially. Conscription is implemented and the Kurdish government carries out a series of war games, simulating various defences of Kurdish territory, this year, mobilizing around 150,000 troops. The economy continues to grow with increased commercial ties with foreign countries, and subsidized manufacturing. New factories begin supplying small arms and artillery to the Kurdish military. Two volunteer brigades are sent to Greece, although they are not official Kurdish troops. The government accepts the French offer of increased economic ties and border demilitarization from last year. Meanwhile, the leaders of the Syriac Catholic and Orthodox Churches are again offered subsidies and official recognition if they headquarter in Kurdistan. (Mod Responses Please)
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra and Portugal to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We request that they should join in the Iberian Union which would discuss issues between our nations and across the world.We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace. We will begin industrialization and we begin to initiate tensions between the Berbers and the Arabic people so that they would not be independent. We will secretly continue to supply weapons, ships and tanks to the Fascist movement in greece and we will allow “volunteer” brigands to form in Spain for this conflict. We will join the organization United Nations since we are intrigued but not committed. In secret we probe if any factions want to separate from India albeit peacefully i.e. historically Hyderabad, Jamma and Kashmir, Pakistan, Bengal, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim and Dravida Nadu(Tamil and Kerala Nadu).
    • Portugal said no and Andorra is a no. As for India they got solidly unified under the current Federal government so no separation. -Feud
  • Second Méxican Empire: Maximilian III along with the rest of the nation continues to recover from the Second World War. The Nuremberg trials shock the nation, learning of the atrocities of Nazi leaders and of such. Maximilian III says in a speech short afterword "What the Nazi high command has done to the Jewish population is ... Unspeakable." After these trials, México, still uneasy with the United States, looks to repair its relations with the US and the USSR. A diplomat is sent to the United States to improve the current diplomatic situation with them. Nuclear technology is continued to be worked on non-stop to create a weapon to protect the nation from foreign powers Troops put into Greece last year are sent to secure Athens and the surrounding area to help the Fascist faction taking control.México makes a promise to help any newly independent colony fight for its independence. Meanwhile, the administration puts the EU on their watch-list, starting to appear as an antagonist to SDP matters. [Mil/Eco]
  • Yugoslavia: We ask the Soviet Union whether we should join the EU. We also ask the Soviet Union whether we could peacefully annex Albania under Yugoslavian rule. We ask the USSR whether Romania and Yugoslavia can store the nuclear bombs in our countries and in return we get to use some nukes.We look forward to the 1950 FIFA World Cup. We continue to work in the Soviet-Yugoslvian-Romanian Nuclear Program. We aid Communist rebellions in Vietnam, Malaya and Greece. We don't want to join the EU. We improve our military and infrastructure. We remain Communist.
  • People's Republic of China: We continue reconstruction, fortifications buildup on the DMZ and expanding the mining industry and manufacturing industry in Inner Mongolia and Coastline areas of the PRC. While this is done, Mao Zhedong begins to gain popularity in many areas of the country aligned with the PRC, and even within some leftist groups on the other side of the DMZ, using the Kaesong Accords as a political victory for the PRC, despite being a strategic defeat. However, for a time when war would come again, we begin to conscript several troops into the PLA, and begin training these new conscripts with basic training and some knowledge on how to handle Soviet weaponry and equipment. We also decide to give the Democratic Provisional Government of Greece its embassy on the PRC and the Democratic Republic of Vietnam its own embassy in the PRC, along with the USSR. This is done to extend a hand to Communist nations worldwide. At the same time, we commence the formation of the PLA Navy, or the PLAN for short, and the PLA Air Force in order to provide aerial craft and support for our forces. We decide to ask to purchase some aircraft from the USSR and begin construction of several small ships to commence a starter Navy.
  • Federation of India: After six months of debate, the INC decides which international alliance to join, and we have come to the decision to accept the Federation's offer to join the SDP, for they simply have the best offer in giving us advisors, modern military equipment, and investment in our infrastructure and industry, which all meets our domestic policy goals. Not only do they offer the best deal, but the Federation took interest in our independence and funded it right after World War II, While we are officially part of the SDP now, our foreign policy goal is to have friendly relations with all nations, and thus we accept the United Kingdom's trade agreement, and offer a trade agreement to other NATO members like the United States as well as the members of the Commiturn like the USSR. Domestically, we continue to invest in, expand, and improve our industry and our infrastructure, improving the standard of living in India. Elections are scheduled for 1950. We apply membership to the United Nations. (Infra/eco turn).
    • In July, the United States agree to buy oil and other natural resoucres of India in exchange for improving their infrastructure and military

  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama also announces the deepest apologies to all nations that were affected by the Pacific War; and deeply apologises for all the horrible and disgusting things the Japanese did during the war. Meanwhile, a new law passes that bans the use of whitewashing of any kind, especially in history textbooks. Any book that contains any sympathy to Japanese imperialism are outright banned; and the writer heavily fined, arrested, and sent to jail for five years; and the publisher is also heavily fined with legal actions taken against them. Hate speech is also outright banned and prohibited; and anyone caught speaking out in a hateful manner are fined and also sent to jail. Also, plans to change and replace the current national flag are made.

    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama accepts the UK's proposal for a trade agreement.
  • The Democratic Republic of Vietnam calls upon the PRC and the USSR for support against the Americans, and also cites the UN on its stance on colonization, with Ho Chi Minh stating that France is using the Indochina war as an excuse to continue its influence over the region. He also states that Laos and Cambodia should both join Vietnam in defeating the French, and calls upon the people of Indochina as a whole to rise up and drive the French out. (mod response) 50,000 men are currently serving in a guerrilla war against France, and the headquarters for the DRV is somewhere in the mountains of Vietnam, or beyond. Ho Chi Minh also declares President Zachariadis a true Communist.
    • Communist Greek Diplomacy: President Zachariadis gives an official speech recognizing the Democratic Republic of Vietnam as the true rulers of the region and country of Vietnam.
  • British West Africa: Military and economy continues to build up. Construction of buildings and cities in progress. to be done next year. Also we recruit troops in the military for a good cause of number.

    • Romanian Dip: We send 150,000 men to your aid.
    • Bulgaria: Same amount from us.
    • Dutch Dip: We except the agreement and would like to be friends.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. The technology captured in Operation Paperclip are secretly experimented with in an attempt to outpace Soviet and Axis development. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. To prevent further civil conflict in global colonies, America urges the European nations to grant independence to democratic governments, particularly in the case of Indonesia and Palestine. Seeing gradual success in Indochina, the US defense department retains 8000 troops to maintain order in the region, in addition to the coalition forces from EATO. A naval blockade of three aircraft carriers, six submarines, ten destroyers and 150 smaller vessels hold the line against any supplies getting to the Viet Cong. Any excess military there are sent back to bases in Hawaii. Meanwhile, the number of troops in Greece is raised to 300,000, but a new defensive strategy is implemented to just hold the southern region and buld up a strong barrier against Communist infiltration. The CIA begins secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian Nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
    • ​US Dip: We ask all members of NATO and EATO to secure their borders and prevent any Communist incursion whatsoever. This will prevent the USSR from influencing any insurgencies there
  • Italy: We continue constructing infrastructure and defensive fortification, as well as beginning to construct the headquarters of the Rome branch of the EU. The construction will begin on a temporary building, which is to be smaller to ensure that there will be a building by 1952, and a larger, more permanent building will be constructed simultaneously and focus will move to the larger building after the smaller one is completed. We continue researching improved tanks, artillery, aircraft, and firearms, and continue to contribute to the ETA's nuclear arm. We begin recruiting labor to work in military production factories, seeing that Italian equipment would be needed in Greece in larger amounts, and older equipment models are sent over.
  • Turkey: Our economy grows today, and we expand our armed forces in light of Communist victories in Greece. Because of the great Communist victories in Greece, Hasan Saka considers recalling the troops he sent to fight for the Democratic government. In the 1950 general elections, the RPP maintains their lead, but that lead is weakened as the Democrats make substantial gains in Parliament. In others, the EU condemnation of the SDP, of which Turkey is apart of, makes several waves as well. Democrats in Parliament call for the immediate withdrawal from the SDP and petitition the government to apply for EU membership. The RPP leadership, including Hasan Saka, rebuke the sentiments of the Conservatives, stating the Turkey has no place in an exclusive, capitalistic European organization, since Turkey is not European. Furthermore, Saka cites the benefits of being in an economic relationship with states such as Saudi Arabia. The issue remains contentious for the time being, as well as the Kurdistan issue. PM Saka continually notes that Kurdistan is independent and therefore any such "Kurd issue" is completely moot. The Democrats remain mostly quiet, but some nationalistic factions of the government insist that Turkey re-annex parts of Kurdistan. Despite all the bad news this year, PM Hasan Saka petitions the government of the PRC for a trade agreement and "friendly relations". He congratulates the government on ending the war, and insists that Turkey assist Communist China in helping to mitigate the effects of its current economic issues. In European news, the Turkish government wins a spot in the EU as an observer member, and officially endorses the creation of Nations Against Communism.
    • Indian Diplomacy: We request a trade agreement.
    • Turkey: We approve of a trade agreement.
    • Federation Dip: We Request to build a naval base in Adana and a combined army/air force base in another location in Turkey.
    • Turkey: We allow the Federacion to build a naval base in Adana, and we suggest that any other base be built in the west of Turkey, since Adana is in the east.
  • The United Kingdom: We announce that Malaya and only Malaya will become a specially administrated zone of the UK. They will be highly autonomous but will still fly the flag of the United Kingdom. We continue to move troops out of India and into French Indochina and we also send troops and many of our battleships to Greece to defend the South. We ask for the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Portugal, Denmark and the Republic of Ireland to join the EU (MOD NEEDED). We ask all members of the EU and NATO, especially France and the USA, to begin moving troops to the Middle East in preparation for a possible war with Saudi Arabia. The new meeting for the EU has begun. Meeting in Rouen.
    • Italian Diplomacy: Wait, what?
      • British Diplomacy: Sorry for confusing you, I actually have no idea why I typed that ^.^
      • Italian Diplomacy: It's cool. I got what you were going for, but I added that as a joke.
    • Turkish Dip: Turkey wishes to be considered an observer member of the EU. PM Hasan Saka notes that while Turkey is a member of the SDP, he wishes for there to be reduced tensions between the SDP and EU, and hopes that a Turkish observer status might mitigate these tension.
    • British Diplomacy: We accept Turkey as an official observer state of the EU. We need to let you know that as an observer you are only allowed to participate in discussions, not vote. But you can make proposals. Also you are not allowed to leak any information we discuss to the SDP under any circumstances. Thank you for joining. Our meeting for this year will be held in Rouen, France.
    • The United States offers to sell discounted Arabian oil to the UK and other NATO nations it receives from the SDP by way of India
    • British Diplomacy: We accept the USA's offer.
    • Indian Diplomacy: We accept the United Kingdom's offer of trade but we decline their alliance offer because the Federation and the UK have tense relations right now regarding the Middle East.
    • British Diplomacy: We understand and respect India's decision not to make an alliance with us at the moment.
    • Malayan Diplomacy: We offer British a chance to end this war if they a) grant us independence b) we will change our government to nationalist-democratic and c) All British must leave Malaya and not return.
    • British Diplomacy: We have already granted you plenty of autonomy and we highly doubt that a bunch of Communists with immediately change there government just to be independent. We have tried to warn you to stop but now we will issue no more warnings and we are telling you that the EU, the SDP, and NAC are all coming to shut down this rebellion. Now we advise you to end this uprising at once and surrender or there will be bloodshed.
    • Romanian Dip: We'd like to point out that many Communist nations are implementing democratic ideals, including elections. We do not want war and point out that you are allying yourselves with the Fascists of the SPD, while you claim to protect freedom.
    • British Diplomacy: We know this Romania. That is why we are only going after hostile "nations" that have been unrecognised by the EU, NATO, the SDP, etc.
    • Dutch Dip: First, we are a nationalist nation not a democratic nation. Two Greece came to us not the other way around. So we are just being kind that is all. Mind your own business.
    • British Diplomacy: Then why does it say in the nations part of this page that you are a democracy. I don't recall you ever stating that you changed your government.
    • i still have yet to see the trade agreement for oil from India to the US. -Feud
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: sadly, our beloved leader, Josef Stalin dies this year, due to completions from a bad case of flu. He is immediately replaced by the much more light ruling leader, Vladimer Andronikov. While our new leader still believes Communism can work, he begins to switch to a more Socialist government, were some personal property or businesses can exist. Many small businesses are allowed to exist outside of the hands of the state, but larger businesses are still completely controlled by the state. Standard of living begins to increase, slowly but surly, with the economy opening up to people who wish to buy some personal property. In addition, he takes much of the power away from police to arrest and punish arbitrarily, and begins to introduce a trial system, though police are still considers far more oppressive than in the west. The military is partially demobilized, but investment in military tech does not. We work hard on creating a nuclear weapon, in order to deter any capitalist attack on our nation. The nuclear project is going well currently, and we think we will have a working nuclear weapon by early 1951. In addition, we begin building up our Air force and Navy, recognizing that these two area are probably in bitter need of improvement. We secretly begin to send aid to many Communist nations and revolutions across the globe. Most notably, we send large amounts of aid to North Vietnam, hoping to topple the French rule, and to Greece, though to a lesser extent, as our allies are also heavily supporting the Greek revolution. We also support Communist Factions in Egypt, Pakistan, and the Phillepines, with several Communist factions starting to grow in all country's.
    • Diplomacy: The USSR requests to join the UN.
      • British Diplomacy: You do not have to request to join. Simply go to the page and sign up. We are glad you decided to join though.
    • Indian Diplomacy: India receives news of the Soviet Union's de-Stalinization reforms and we praise the Soviet Union for this step in the right direction. As a result, we accept the USSR's request to join the UN and we offer a trade agreement.
  • Bulgaria: The infrastructure is improved, as more refineries and factories are built.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We start a space program in the nation. We send troops to Malaya to defeat the British.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask you to join the European Union.
    • Romanian Diplomacy: We'd like to establish an trade agreement with you.
    • Méxican Diplomacy: We tell the British that the Netherlands has said repeatedly they aren't interested in joining the European Union. Please stop harassing them about it.
    • Communist Greek Diplomacy: President Zachariadis requests to open an embassy in the capital city of the Netherlands in order to establish official relations between the two countries.
    • British Diplomacy: Why is the Netherlands, a democratic nation, supporting the spread of Communism? You are basically contradicting your own political beliefs. If you continue to support the Communist movements around the world then you will not only be an enemy of the EU but also the NAC (Nations Against Communism).
  • People's Republic of Greece: President Zachariadis plans further offensives into Boetia and Attica, hoping to reach Athens by the end of the year. An attack is also launched across the Gulf of Patras, hoping to take the city which is the Gulf's namesake. The People's Republic of Greece continues to state its position as the true ruler of the territories of Greece, declaring the government in the South illegitimate. Military support from Communist allies who are willing to send help is requested, as the President hopes to put a quick end to the Civil War. President Zachariadis also requests to open embassies in the capitals of fellow Communist states, as well as any other states not involved in the Greek Civil War who are willing to allow it. The DSE is reformed, with an official command and ranking system put into place. Troop numbers are placed at approximately 125,000 to 175,000 soldiers, excluding the large amount of non-combatants helping with the war effort and the troops from other nations who have been sent to assist the war effort.
    • The USSR Agrees, and sends supplies to help crush the illegitimate southern Greece government.
    • Dutch Dip: We agree to everything and like the idea of becoming friends.
  • Greater Socialist Republic of Malaya: We begin a series of random assaults on British positions. We continue our push and request assistance. We also begin an assault on Kuala Lumpur and set up positions outside Singapore. We denounce the British colonial control as illegitimate and vow to kick them out. We also enact martial law in the areas we control and British laws will not be obeyed in those areas, not limited to places under attack. We encourage citizens to boycott British goods and services.
    • We ask Spain for assistance.
    • Communist Greek Diplomacy: President Zachariadis recognizes the Free Malaya Front's right to the ownership of the region and country of Malaysia.
    • Dutch Dip: We will send troops to help you.
    • The USSR sends supplies to assist Malaya
  • Australian Commonwealth: The Australian Navy has reached a total of 462 vessels this year - an impressive stat for the Oceanic continent-nation. However, we've begun decommissioning many of our outdated vessels to make room for more updated models. The decommissioned ships are up for sale or can be used for scrap metal to build on other ships or other materials. Another 10,000 strong able bodied soldiers are added to the Australian Army, totaling in at 260,000 strong. We continue to build up our infrastructure to take in refugees fleeing from the war torn areas of Indonesia, Malaysia, and even some escaping from Indochina. This influx brings in a new group of Dutch, French, English, and some Southeastern Asia demographics to the continent. The construction of our two new aircraft carriers is completed and we a strengthened to a total of four aircraft carriers in our navy. With the independence of India, we pull all our forces from India and bring those troops home. Meanwhile, we focus all of our military efforts in Southeast Asia. Indochina and fighting Malaysian insurgents. The short distance greatly aids us. The Arabians and Middle Easterns in Australia are heavily hated, as they are members of the SDP. The SDP has also begun to be treated as the most vile alliance since the Axis. Anti-SDP advertisement is ran in Australia.
    • New Zealand: Our Army has increased to 65,000.
    • Papua New Guinea: Our Army has increased to 60,000.
    • Indian Diplomacy: India thanks Australia for withdrawing out of India but we think that it is unfortunate that the Australian Commonwealth takes such a strong anti-SDP sentiment when the Communist nations are the main funders and suppliers for the insurgents in Indochina and Malayasia. Despite our separation in alliances, India hopes to reestablish friendly ties with Australia as we are both former members of the British Empire, and India offers a trade agreement with Australia.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra and Portugal to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace. We will begin industrialization and we begin to initiate tensions between the Berbers and the Arabic people so that they would not be independent. We will secretly continue to supply weapons, ships and tanks to the Fascist movement in greece and we will allow “volunteer” brigands to form in Spain for this conflict. We deny the request from the Greater Socialist Republic of Malaya for aid since they are a Communist nation. We will also secretly support the independence of Yunnan and Guangxi. (Mod)
  • Kurdistan continues to focus on improving its economy and military. Improved economic ties with France, Britain and Canada help expand Kurdish export markets, notably of oil, while the Kurdish army imports heavy weapons, aircraft and armour. The military aggressively upgrades its tactics to focus more on mobile warfare adapted to desert environments. The Assyrian Legion and its associated movement grows to 30,000, while the Kurds continue to support Druze, Assyrians and (of course) Kurds in Syria. Anti-pan-Arab rhetoric is spread and minority groups are encouraged to promote their interests. More volunteers travel to fight for the democrats in Greece. Education is expanded to cope with a growing need for Kurdish professionals, with higher education institutions mad emote widely and cheaply available. Land reform occurs, with the remaining sheikhs' and tribal leaders' lands purchased at a fair price and given to the peasants who work them, effectively abolishing serfdom. Kurdistan offers greatly reduced taxes and high interest rates for foreigners who invest in the Kurdish economy. Kurdistan offers the leaders of the Syriac Orthodox and Catholic Churches safety (and tacit support) in Kurdistan, with a minority Christian population. (Mod Responses)
  • British Diplomacy: Being that you are one of our greatest allies in the Middle East we ask you to join the Nations Against Communism (NAC).
    • Indian Diplomacy: We accept the investment offer and start to invest in the Kurdistani economy. We also request a trade agreement with Kurdistan in exchange for your oil..
    • Kurdistan agrees both to join the NAC and accepts the Indian trade deal.
  • The Federation of India: Elections are held this year, and the leader of the Indian National Congress, Jawaharial Nehru, becomes India's First Prime Minister. Nehru thanks the people of India, and immediately embarks on a path of massive reform for India, implementing centralization for the Federal government. With massive investment from the Federation of the Americas and the United States, Nehru invests in reforming the economy, in which Nehru implements a mixed economy, where the public sector can coexisit with the private sector. Nehru makes a public sector of the nation's resources such as steal, iron, coal, and power so he can use it to build the nation's infrastructure, expanding the nation's roads and railroads, with a focus on education so the Indian population is learneded and can secure a better future for themselves and increase the standard of living in India by contributing to the economy more in the future. These public sector resources are also used to build and fund factories heavily in order to be heavily industrialized. This public sector becomes highly regulated. The private sector, however, is deregulated and competition between Hindu and Muslim businesses is encouraged, expanding the private sector. Foreign companies are also deregulated and are encouraged in our nation and we welcome more investment. Meanwhile, land reform coincides with heavy industrialization, in order to increase the yield of wheat and rice. Meanwhile, Nehru introduces laws against the Hindu caste system and increases women's rights.
    • Korean Dip: We offer a trade agreement and port usage exchanges for both our nations cargo fleets and navies.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic aid from the United States to rebuild key infrastructure damaged by the Japanese, miles of roads are built, linking the capital to its other provinces. Communist-sympathisers from its Southern Provinces (in the island of Mindanao) are fined, and jailed for five years. Due to the fear of a more aggressive China, and a rapidly modernising Japan, the central government plans to build a large industrial base centred on exporting large amounts of labor-intensive manufactured goods, mostly in the heavy industry sector, in which the Philippines could potentially developed a competitive advantage on due to its strategic location in the middle of East Asia, vast resources, and energetic population growth. We continue exporting supplies to democratic forces in Vietnam, and our commodity trade volume rises. Some 100,000 troops are sent to Mindanao to stop pro-Communist uprisings.
    • We ask the United States (our ally) to send us more economic aid to rebuild infrastructure and restore industrial power, we also ask them to expand their already high military presence on the archipelago. We also want them to pressure the British on giving Sabah, the territory of the Sultunate of Sulu (Sulu is now a province), to us.
    • British Diplomacy: We may be willing to give the land to the Philippines if they help to end our crisis in Malaya by joining the NAC and creating a blockade around the Malayan colony.
  • Second Méxican Empire: Maximilian III along with the rest of the nation continues to recover from the Second World War. The Nuremberg trials shock the nation, learning of the atrocities of Nazi leaders and of such. Maximilian III says in a speech short afterword "What the Nazi high command has done to the Jewish population is ... Unspeakable." After these trials, México, still uneasy with the United States, looks to repair its relations with the US and the USSR. A diplomat is sent to the United States to improve the current diplomatic situation with them. Nuclear technology is continued to be worked on non-stop to create a weapon to protect the nation from foreign powers Troops put into Greece last year are sent to secure Athens and the surrounding area to help the Fascist faction taking control. México continues to uphold its promise to help any newly independent colony fight for its independence. To honor the lives of those who had died in Greece, a special parade is held on the day of the dead to remember all of those lost. Meanwhile, the Méxican heir to the throne, Marco, starts to prove he is illegitimate. Some people want his younger sister to claim the title, while others preach for a democratically elected president. [Mil/Eco]
  • Saudi Arabia: The Riyadh Conference brings success in foreign affairs,and wecooperate with Britain. People in Saudi Arabia are happy about our decolonization successes, and the success of the growth of the SDP. We begin an attempt to increase our population, opening our borders to any Sunni Muslims who speak Arabic fluently. We also begin a campaign for current citizens to have more children. Our third and final campaign in this endevour is the industrialization campaign, and we see some growth in the cities of Jeddah and Riyadh. We also increase the commercialization in Mecca, so that our economy can grow more during the Hajj and Mecca can be a more serviceable city. We begin the construction of a commercial airport in Riyadh, which we hope to also be helpful for the Hajj. Finally, we construct a highway from Riyadh to Jeddah, with access to Mecca.
  • France: Military expansion and modernization continues. Money is poured into military research mainly advanced aeronautics, nuclear development, and other experimental technology. An outline for a more advanced medium tank and for an assault rifle are made and put under review by the government. As political debates on the future of France and its empire continue the right gain more influence under the leadership of De Gaulle. With the increased military spending de Gaulle takes advantage of his status as a war hero to build support within the armed forces, something that scares the left and centre who wish to keep power out of the hands of a military man. Despite this fear of the right the government refuses to cooperate with the Communists out of fear of the left as well and their perceived weakening of the state during the beginnings of World War 2. Paris request loans from the USA to help with economic development and reconstruction as the government tries to balance the budget. More resources are allocated to colonial development specially in North and West Africa where valuable resources such as oil can be found.On the diplomatic front Paris continues to send supplies to the democratic forces in Greece and offers to start supplying the nationalists in China in the hoeps of gaining an ally to help suppress the Vietnamese Communists in North Indochina. Troops move to break Vietnamese rebels.
    • Indochina: More troops are sent to Indochina and forces there are authorized to use any means necessary to suppress the Communist insurrection. Anti-Communist paramilitaries lead mainly by French-trained southerners of mixed ancestry namely from Saigon the colonial capital. This paramilitary forces are authorized are regulated by colonial officials but given some degree of autonomy. Major offences into North Yietnam are made to try to reassert control over the region.
      • Algeria: Strong efforts are made to increase the Franconization of Algeria as to balance local culture with French to help build a foundation for further integration. Development of infrastructure begins to make transportation through the large area easier and to improve communication with the interior.

      • Syria and Jordan: talks with local leaders continue as arming of the Elawites goes on in preparation for the eventual French withdrawal from the region. Strong emphasis is made on the need to make France's
      • DRV Dip: Ho Chi Minh demands that France leave. In return, the DRV will allow the South to be an independent country on its own.
  • Korea: The Republic of Korea continues to take a hands off approach towards military conflict. The economy continues to grow, and new construction in Seoul, Incheon, Busan, and Kaesong begin to speed up economic recovery. In Seoul, the three major parties agree with the increasing population, the KWP's ideology of mass labor will be used, but a democratic bidding system will be used to hire a contractor. The shipyards in Incheon and Busan are complete, and the Navy yards in all three cities are completed. A new destroyer is laid down for the Navy, and plans for a corvette, patrol boat, and submarines are planned. The government votes by a narrow margin to request to purchase a submarine from the UK, or USA. The border with the PRC is fortified more due to some concerns about the weakening economy and possible refugee crisis.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues its major development of its nuclear program getting a successful lab test in with a succesful bomb to follow up the next year. The Federation continues major land warfare developments beginning to work on a new assault rifle to replace the STG 44. The development going into this becomes a priority as the independent development of this rifle will show some of the future power of the Federation arms industry. The Federation also fields its new tanks in greater numbers retiring all German designs and replacing with the new medium and heavy tank designs. The New IFV also continues development as well with testing going into effect. The Federation continues to develop many of its most powerful industries of steel, automotive, aeronautics, and shipbuilding. The Carrier Group Empresa is sent to Saudi Arabia ariving in Jeddah. The Fleet consists of eight destroyers, three cruisers, ten frigates, five submarines, and the Battleships Salvadore and Natal. This fleet is to be a heavy hitting fleet forward deployed to the area to prevent hot spots from flaring up as well as to provide protection and solidarity to its Saudi and Indian allies. The Federation now begins development of new jet based carrier aircraft. The warm up to election season begins in the Federation with the picking of Candidates between the Liberalistas, and Federalistas begins. The Highway act is passed beginning national construction of the Federal highways system. The Cities of Caracas, Rio De Janeiro, and Bogota all begin major re-development into impressive major cities. The City of San Salvaćion becomes the shining example of cities for the whole country as its population reaches 500,000 unprecedented considering the time of its construction. This begins the flooding of the resource Rich Gran Chaco region with internal immigrants looking to being developing these resources for job creation in the area. The Federation request India please conform to the Oil doctrine of the other oil producing members of the SDC while we figure out a correct policy of selling to non member nations vs member nations.
  • Yugoslavia: We ask the Soviet Union whether we should join the UN. We plan to annex Albania under Yugoslavian rule. We ask the USSR whether Romania and Yugoslavia can store the nuclear bombs in our countries and in return we get to use some nukes.We look forward to the 1950 FIFA World Cup. We continue to work in the Soviet-Yugoslvian-Romanian Nuclear Program. We aid Communist rebellions in Vietnam, Malaya and Greece. We don't want to join the EU. We improve our military and infrastructure. We remain Communist.

1950.5

The World cup begins in the Federation city of Rio De Janeiro with games in every capital city in the Federation followed by the final game in San Salvaćion.

The NAC forms between members of the SDP and NATO/EU but internal issues remain which may stifle the organizations growth and cohesiveness.

Diplomats from the US, Federation, and USSR see the issue of all nations developing nuclear weapons and each brings it to the attention of their respective government that only a few recognized powers should maintain nuclear arsenals.

The Kingdom of Egypt (nominally independent of Britain) begins to see some higher level issues in its officers with Gamal Abdel Nasser being a prominent leader in the new Egyptian Movement.

The area of Palestine sees major zionist riots and guerrilla warfare which puts many colonial officials of both France and Britain to look towards a friendly allied Israeli state but ethnic issues remain a problem in dealing with the area.

The Federation sees a low level Communist insurrection in Cuba beginning but remains hard pressed to find and wipe out the insurgency.

  • Romania: We begin planning an election, set for 1954. We will let many members of the Communist Party participate at them. We ask for peaceful solutions to world conflicts. We begin building an embassy complex for nations like the US, UK, the Federation and Mexico. We begin supporting the Communist rebellion in the Philippines.
  • Turkey: Our economy grows this year, and in light of largescale Greek Communist victories, PM Saka orders the navy to be expanded greatly for the possibility of a naval blockade on Greece. The Turkish Navy sets sights on Istanbul, Adana, and Izmir as key cities in this naval development. Furthermore, we allow Federation ships to station themselves at the port of Adana. In other news, the government celebrates the creation of the NAC, with PM Saka reportedly being proud that Turkey is a founding member. In other news, Turkey is troubled at the Dutch support of Communism. Even though the Turkish government supported the EU membership of the Netherlands, it has since changed its tune, and has declared that if the Greek Communists are ultimately successful in their war, Turkey will embargo the Netherlands and disallow any Dutch ships to pass into the Black Sea. In other news, the government is still considering the withdrawal of troops from Greece. The Democrats in Parliament call for even more troops to be sent to the region, which the PM considers as well. Because of this, the Turkish Navy plans to intitiate a partial blockade of major Greek ports beginning in early 1951. In other news, the Turkish government supports the establishment of an independent Israel, stating that for too long Jews have been oppressed and subjugated by genocidal policy, and thus deserve a safe, tolerant nation of their own. The Democrats, being conservative and Islamist, are wary of the plan, and mention that the native Arabs and Muslims may not want a Jewish state.
  • Kingdom of Egypt: Expansion of the Egyptian military, and the state infrastructure continued. The Kingdom directed funds towards enhancing the national railways, which were designed to link administrative and economic centres such as Cairo and Alexandria with the rest of the Kingdom. However, high levels of corruption present within the Kingdom crippled the modernization attempt, and severely damaged the prestige of the monarchy. Meanwhile, national resentment towards the Monarchy and the British authorities continued, with an increasive support given to the Egyptian Independence Movement. The populace had been already been critical of the British decision to deploy troops in Egypt, and the appeasement by the Monarchy further deteriorated the situation. By June 1950, protests against the presence of British troops in Egypt had begun; albeit it had not reached a critical stage.
    • British Diplomacy: We plan on giving Egypt full independence after we create the state of Israel. For now we ask the leaders of the movement to be patient and we will begin moving our troops out of the area and into Africa and Palestine.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: The Egyptian authorities express their concern over the British desire to establish Israel and question the validity of a Zionist state.
    • British Diplomacy: A nation specifically for the Jewish people is long overdue. They deserve a place to call their own. If you are worried about possible invasion from the state then we will provide all the protection and equipment that is needed.
  • Switzerland: We join the Nations Against Communism as a member of the EU. We deploy forces to the Middle East to help civilians in need in any civil war and to end uprisings. We reiterate our neutrality and state that we will only fight other nations in certain circumstances, but will aid in any anti-rebellion efforts, as it is destructive.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. The technology captured in Operation Paperclip are secretly experimented with in an attempt to outpace Soviet and Axis development. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. To prevent further civil conflict in global colonies, America urges the European nations to grant independence to democratic governments, particularly in the case of Indonesia and Palestine. The blockade of the South China Sea continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi and the military pressense in Greece, although political support for Greece begins to wane. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The monopoly of the SDP is circumvented by the US by buying natural resources through India, although much oil is now coming from Kurdistan and Iran.
    • ​US Dip (to Britain): The secretary of state, in a confidential discussion with the British government, has the following suggestion to resolve the conflict in the Middle East: 1) Release South Arabia as independent, under the condition that the British reserve the right to base military there. 2) Allow Kurdistan, who is favorable to the British, to annex Mesopotamia and Kuwait. 3) Fulfill the Balfour declaraiton by establishing Palestine as an independent state for the Jewish people.
    • British Diplomacy: We think this is a wonderful idea because it will fulfill our promise to Saudi Arabia and a large portion of our colonies will go to a stable and well equipped nation.

British West Africa: So far, the military has some more British recruited troops but not to use British weapons. Meanwhile, some forts and bunkers began to build after a much of work for building cities. We demand that some roads can be built to connect one of our colonial countries which should better work to connect the cities rather than railways.

  • ​Nigeria: Mil and eco.
  • British Togo: Mil and eco.
  • British Senegal: Mil and infra.
  • British Liberia: Mil and eco.
  • The United Kingdom: Our GDP continues to steadily rise and our military numbers grow tremendously in the last few months. We remind EU members that our second meeting has started and we remind the NAC members that we are currently discussing our plans (The Communism Question.) We create a blockade around Malaya and join French and American forces in French Indochina. We support the democratic party of Greece by launching small missiles at the North. They do some damage to the enemy army and manage to weaken the infrastructure of some of the cities along the DMZ. We completely support the idea of a state of Israel but and ask for America's help in making this dream a reality.
    • US Diplomacy: The government begins funding programs to send any Jews who feel so inclined to go to Israel. We also pledge military support to help protect Israel from any Soviet or Arab attack. Also, being that Maylasia has disposed of Communism, the US will not support either side in that conflict, and suggest that Britain grant them full independence.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund a space program in the nation. We continue to send troops to Malaya to defeat the British. After serving three years of his four years in his first term Prime Minister Willem Drees dies of natural causes at the age of 74 years of age. Aaron Klein a Jewish man of the age of 40 of the Socialists party is voted in on such sort notices by the other members of Parliament. He is an anti-capitalist and a strong believer of freedoms for people. He goes by the beliefs of Leon Trotsky, Vladimir Lenin and Rosa Luxemburg. We are now a socialist nation.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues with its major push for nuclear weaponry. The Federation also openly recognizes the need to limit the acquisition of nuclear weapons. The Federation alongside its nuclear weapons development makes concerted efforts to deveop nuclear power alongside its nuclear weapons program. The nations educational and unifying efforts continue with a poll in each Federation member showing overwhleming support to keeping the Federation unified as a singular nation state. The unity stems from the keeping of Spanish and Portuguese as both national languages and the surprising lack of attempts of Brazilian politicians to increase their power in the Federation. The Federation itself shows large growth in its export economy with raw materials and manufactured goods finding their places across the world particularly in the new open Market of India. The Federation begins full investment into its newly acquired Bases in Turkey as well sending for the time being only a small battlegroup of one cruiser, three destroyers, and five frigates to the Adana naval base. Along side this the Federation picks Izmir as its site for its joint army/air force base with a capability of temporarily housing 30,000 troops and a full time complement of about 10,000. The Federation continues development of new equipment particularly its powerful land forces and new aerial vehicles. The Navy begins to take steps to develop new ships adding technological advances acquired from the German scientists. The Development of a combined arms doctrine continues with the emphasis on combined arms tactics and further research into maximizing these tactics. The Federation begins to invest much more heavily into its lighter industries to become competitive as well as prevent the US from overtaking Federation markets with cheap light industrial exports. This leads to foundations of a well balances industrial economy with heavy emphasis on raw material extraction and development as well. The Federation Armed forced begin a noticeable increase to reach project needed numbers of 1.3 million. The Federation also revolutionizes its militia system replacing it with the National Guard of which each member state and its constituent departments responsible for fielding an professional armed force that is to be used as a reserve force. Its active forces are to function as a secondary proffessional military and if equipment is needed the State/Member will pay for the equipment themselves rather than the federal government. The Port of Santos officially becomes the second largest shipping port in the world. The Federation begins anti-insurgent operations in Cuba
  • British Diplomacy: There is no one playing as many of the nations in Europe (Portugal, Finland, Ireland, etc.) so could you please look at the EU page and put up here whether or not they want to join. Your response is needed as a mod.
  • East Germany: Reconstruction continues in all major cities. Industry and infrastructure are expanded and improved. We begin our first Five Year plan with the goal of increasing production and reducing unemployment. We decide to join the UN and send limited support to Communist insurgents across the globe.
  • The Democratic Republic of Vietnam continues its guerrilla war against France, and notes the presence of paramilitary groups. Vo Nyguyen Giap realizes he can use this to the advantage of Vietnam, and thus, he starts sending in infiltrators into these groups, who begin secretly spreading propaganda. Furthermore, this operation of spying expands so that it is used to gain information on the French plans, armaments, and positions. It is also used to appeal to the paramilitaries about the wrong they are committing by fighting other Vietnamese, be they of mixed race or not. Suicide bombings begin across Hanoi and the paramilitaries, and a general ambush begins as well, with several occurring in various areas, from raids to capture weapons, to attacks on convoys.
  • Republic of Malaya: We continue the assaults on British military positions. We begin a nationalist campaign against the British in Sarawak and Brunei. The Communist forces are decommissioned while we intensify our campaign against the British forces.
    • Spain: We will now secretly support Malaysia with weapons but we will withhold unless you adopt Fascism and we will seek a diplomatic solution.
    • British Diplomacy: We would like to have diplomatic negotiations about the independence of Malaya and our possible recognition of it as a state.
    • Malayan Diplomacy: We agree to diplomatic negotiations.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: sadly, our beloved leader, Josef Stalin dies this year, due to completions from a bad case of flu. He is immediately replaced by the much more light ruling leader, Vladimer Andronikov. While our new leader still believes Communism can work, he begins to switch to a more Socialist government, were some personal property or businesses can exist. Many small businesses are allowed to exist outside of the hands of the state, but larger businesses are still completely controlled by the state. Standard of living begins to increase, slowly but surly, with the economy opening up to people who wish to buy some personal property. In addition, he takes much of the power away from police to arrest and punish arbitrarily, and begins to introduce a trial system, though police are still considers far more oppressive than in the west. The military is partially demobilized, but investment in military tech does not. We work hard on creating a nuclear weapon, in order to deter any capitalist attack on our nation. The nuclear project is going well currently, and we think we will have a working nuclear weapon by early 1951. In addition, we begin building up our Air force and Navy, with several aircraft carriers being built, and many more smaller ships and planes, as we recognize that these two area are probably in bitter need of improvement. We secretly begin to send aid to many Communist nations and revolutions across the globe. Most notably, we send large amounts of aid to North Vietnam, hoping to topple the French rule, and to Greece, though to a lesser extent, as our allies are also heavily supporting the Greek revolution. We also support Communist Factions in Egypt, Pakistan, and the Phillepines, with several Communist factions starting to grow in all country's.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra and Portugal to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace. We will begin industrialization and we begin to initiate tensions between the Berbers and the Arabic people so that they would not be independent. We will secretly continue to supply weapons, ships and tanks to the Fascist movement in greece and we will allow “volunteer” brigands to form in Spain for this conflict. We will also secretly support the independence of Yunnan and Guangxi. (Mod)
  • Australian Commonwealth: The Australian Navy has reached a total of 462 vessels this year - an impressive stat for the Oceanic continent-nation. However, we've begun decommissioning many of our outdated vessels to make room for more updated models. The decommissioned ships are up for sale or can be used for scrap metal to build on other ships or other materials. Another 10,000 strong able bodied soldiers are added to the Australian Army, totaling in at 260,000 strong. We continue to build up our infrastructure to take in refugees fleeing from the war torn areas of Indonesia, Malaysia, and even some escaping from Indochina. This influx brings in a new group of Dutch, French, English, and some Southeastern Asia demographics to the continent. The construction of our two new aircraft carriers is completed and we a strengthened to a total of four aircraft carriers in our navy. With the independence of India, we pull all our forces from India and bring those troops home. Meanwhile, we focus all of our military efforts in Southeast Asia. Indochina and fighting Malaysian insurgents. The short distance greatly aids us. The Arabians and Middle Easterns in Australia are heavily hated, as they are members of the SDP. The SDP has also begun to be treated as the most vile alliance since the Axis. Anti-SDP advertisement is ran in Australia.
  • New Zealand: Our Army has increased to 65,000.
  • Papua New Guinea: Our Army has increased to 60,000.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. Plans to change and replace the current national flag continue, with a few new designs already made. A vote will be put to use next year. Anti-discrimination laws are passed protecting any non-Japanese from discrimination. Anyone found discriminating against non-Japanese will be heavily fined and some jail time. Women are also given equal rights.
  • Saudi Arabia: Saudi Arabia, still focusing on getting decolonization right, asks Britain to give us a more detailed plan for their decolonization process. We continue our three main internal projects: First, we focus on industrialization of three cities, Riyadh, Mecca, and Jeddah. Next, we focus on the improvement of our infrastructure, including an international passenger airport and a highway system connecting our main cities. Finally, we focus on increasing the population by accepting Muslim immigrants and promoting childbirth. We ask Australia to be a bit Nicer to the SDP, following our successful negotiations with Britain, and especially be nicer to Arabs, as racism is what caused the Holocaust.
    • British Diplomacy: We have no detailed plans yet but we know that the first areas which we will decolonise will be Israel and Egypt. Future plans of which places we will decolonise have yet to be decided.
  • Canada OOC: Because I became Mod for another Map Game and because of IRL problems, I'll have to stop playing Canada. Sorry.
    • British Diplomacy: Aw that's too bad. Well, it was fun playing with you and I hope everything is all right. ^.^
  • Kurdistan enjoys a growing economy, particularly as its oil industry's market share increases as many major producers, like Saudi Arabia and the Federation, are no longer selling to the larger market. Work to push down the price of Kurdish oil through more efficient production methods continues, while natural gas is also produced. Meanwhile, the government begins investing some of tis petrodollars into other sectors of the economy, subsidizing new factories and building several dams to provide hydropower. The "Saladin" car company is incorporated this year, offering cheap, basic trucks to Middle Eastern consumers. A comprehensive railway network also begins construction. The Kurds continue to support regional minority groups and oppose pan-Arab groups, arming and supplying the former.
  • Philippines: We continue using the millions of dollars of economic aid from the United States to rebuild our last industrial capacity (before the war), miles of roads are built, based on the road system in Japan, linking the capital to its northern provinces in Luzon. A steel factory in Manila is under construction. Some petro-chemical factories (using oil obtained from sea platforms) are under construction as well. Textile factories are built across Luzon. We focus on stimulating economic growth in all sectors, trying to balance the economic growth between agriculture and industry. More farms are built in Mindanao and some farms are mechanised. We continue exporting supplies to democratic forces in Vietnam, and our commodity trade volume rises. We would want to get Sabah from Malaysia since it was historically a part of the Philippines.
  • Second Méxican Empire: Maximilian III along with the rest of the nation continues to recover from the Second World War. The Nuremberg trials shock the nation, learning of the atrocities of Nazi leaders and of such. Maximilian III says in a speech short afterword "What the Nazi high command has done to the Jewish population is ... Unspeakable." After these trials, México, still uneasy with the United States, looks to repair its relations with the US and the USSR. A diplomat is sent to the United States to improve the current diplomatic situation with them. Nuclear technology is continued to be worked on non-stop to create a weapon to protect the nation from foreign powers Troops put into Greece last year are sent to secure Athens and the surrounding area to help the Fascist faction taking control. México continues to uphold its promise to help any newly independent colony fight for its independence. México offers help the the Federation of hey need help in Cuba. Meanwhile, the Méxican heir to the throne, Marco, continues to prove he is illegitimate. Some people want his younger sister to claim the title, while others preach for a democratically elected president. The Automonous territories are annexed by México, bringing them closer to the motherland. [Mil/Eco]
  • The Federation of India: We accept Korea's trade offer. Elections are held this year, and the leader of the Indian National Congress, Jawaharial Nehru, becomes India's First Prime Minister. Nehru thanks the people of India, and immediately embarks on a path of massive reform for India, implementing centralization for the Federal government. With massive investment from the Federation of the Americas and the United States, Nehru invests in reforming the economy, in which Nehru implements a mixed economy, where the public sector can coexisit with the private sector. Nehru makes a public sector of the nation's resources such as steal, iron, coal, and power so he can use it to build the nation's infrastructure, expanding the nation's roads and railroads, with a focus on education so the Indian population is learneded and can secure a better future for themselves and increase the standard of living in India by contributing to the economy more in the future. These public sector resources are also used to build and fund factories heavily in order to be heavily industrialized. This public sector becomes highly regulated. The private sector, however, is deregulated and competition between Hindu and Muslim businesses is encouraged, expanding the private sector. Foreign companies are also deregulated and are encouraged in our nation and we welcome more investment. Meanwhile, land reform coincides with heavy industrialization, in order to increase the yield of wheat and rice. Meanwhile, Nehru introduces laws against the Hindu caste system and increases women's rights.

  • British West Africa: We continue to build some buildings while our reaction to Middle East independence from colonization is maybe not surprising. We decided to recruit more troops to our military, and economy improves to the our African colonies that we have.
    • Nigeria: Mil and eco.
  • British Togo: Mil and eco.
  • British Senegal: Mil and eco.
  • British Liberia: Mil and infra.
  • The United States supports an independent democracy in West Africa and offers to improve their military and economy.
  • The United Kingdom: The Malayan Independence Conference has begun and the NAC has been created. We are glad that the state of Israel was successfully created but we now are forced to move our troops to the border to help the Israeli defend from a possible attack by the Egyptians. We send lots of aid to Tibet and Nassam and help to rebuild destroyed villages there. We also call on the Federation to help to end the Communist parties in Indochina and Greece. Our army has reached nearly a lot of soldiers and our navy has grown to a tremendous size also. Now that the Fascist Greek party has fallen we begin recruiting them to help the democracy and we also begin our naval blockade on the West side of Greece and continue with air strikes. We also begin successful nuclear tests in remote parts of Northern Scandinavia. We again ask if one of the mods would fill in for the Scandinavian countries, Portugal, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Ireland, Andorra, the Vatican, and Denmark and tell us whether or not these nations are willing to join the EU.
  • Romania: We send troops in Greece to help the Communist, about 100,000. Despite this, we want to take part at the Communist Question discussions. We'd like to talk to you in a peaceful manner. We'd also like an observer place in the EU. We might wanna add that we will have elections in 1954. We continue to study tech and we help the poor of our nation.
    • British Diplomacy: Even though Romania is Communist since they are developing a more democratic-esque government we will allow them to join the Communist Question discussions and be an observer in the EU.
  • Republic of Egypt: Expansion of the Egyptian military, and the state infrastructure continued. The Kingdom directed funds towards enhancing the national railways, which were designed to link administrative and economic centres such as Cairo and Alexandria with the rest of the Kingdom. However, high levels of corruption present within the Kingdom crippled the modernization attempt, and severely damaged the prestige of the monarchy. Meanwhile, national resentment towards the Monarchy and Nasser was increasively viewed as the sole representative of the Egyptian people. Major riots had begun throughout the nation, with the British flag and effigies of British leaders burned throughout the Kingdom. On 2nd February, hundreds of rioters attacked the British Embassy in Egypt, burning it down and killing 23 British citizens in the process. The situation in Egypt increasively became volatile. However, 'Black Saturday' turned out to be the last straw for the Independence Movement. Under support of the military, the Free Officers declared the start of a revolution on 8th of March at around 5:00 AM, and quickly surrounded the Montaza Palace where the King was residing. Key royalist commanders were arrested by the Free Officers in order to ensure the smooth removal of King Farouk, and by 07:30 AM, Free Officer air force units had begun circling the skies of Cairo. The Revolution was celebrated through Egypt, with jubilant crowds gathering for massive celebrations. King Farouk was deposed, in favour of Crown Prince Ahmed Fuad, and a regency council was set up. The deposed King was eventually exiled to Italy on 20th of March. In the meantime, Gamal Abdel Nasser was declared the President of Egypt. However, by June 1951, a new constitution for Egypt was set up, establishing a presidential system of government and ending the monarchy.
    • The United States requests a trade deal with Egypt, and asks it to recognize the state of Israel.
    • British Diplomacy: We recognise Egypt and immediately begin pulling out of the hostile nation.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: The Republic of Egypt accepts the trade deal with the United States, but refuses to recognize Israel. Egypt also appreciates the British recognition of the new regime, and their decision to withdraw the British military from Egypt. However, it is considered insulting that Egypt has been referred to as a hostile nation.
    • Indian Diplomacy: We recognize the Republic of Egypt and we request a trade deal with it.
    • British Diplomacy: Well. you were being kind of hostile to the British Crown. You destroyed our embassy (and a third of Cairo, might I add) and killed 23 people. But now that you are independent we hope we can put this behind us and we extend an offer of trade as an apology.
      • Just to clarify, the riots weren't caused by the republicans. -Nathan
      • British Diplomacy: We aware of this and have apologised for calling them hostile.
    • Korea: We recognize Egypt.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation recognizes Egypt and offers any and all support to Nasser it can provide.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: The Republic of Egypt accepts the offer of trade with the United Kingdom and India, and offers to sign similar trade deals with the Federation. The decision by Korea to recognize Egypt is also appreciated.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. The technology captured in Operation Paperclip are secretly experimented with in an attempt to outpace Soviet and Axis development. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The blockade of the South China Sea continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi and the military pressense in Greece. Seeing that the Communists were successfully stopped in Greece, Congress begins to debate whether they should set up a DMZ and pull back, or press a counterstrike. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The monopoly of the SDP is circumvented by the US by buying natural resources through India, although much oil is now coming from Kurdistan and Iran. The US recognizes both the states of Israel and Egypt. We pledge military support to protect Israel from its neighbors.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur with the creation of a national guard made up entirely of Portuguese Africans (it numbers 500 men) as well as military restructuring and replacing of outdated equipment. 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. In other news the Colonial Administration announces the Creation of the Euro-African Union, a defensive and economic union aimed at protecting European colonies and nations in Africa, membership is offered to South Africa, Rhodesia and Mozambique with observer status offered to Britain, Spain, Portugal and France. (Can I have a mod response for the non-player nations/colonies?)

    • The United States asks for observor status in the EAU
    • The USA is accepted.
  • Korea: Rebuilding in all major cities is completed, as is restoration of power to them. Work begins on the power grid for rural communities especially in the south and the central north. Work on the destroyer is 50% complete, and two corvettes are laid down as well. Work on the shipyards in Incheon and Busan is completed with 49% ownership by the government and 51% in private hands. A small arms industry begins with local replicas of the M1 Carbine being built under the name K-01 Battle Rifle. It is semiautomatic and is lighter than the M1 Garand currently in frontline service. Plans are drawn up for a light machine gun, medium machine gun, heavy machine gun, grenades, a sniper rifle, and handguns for the military. Kia Heavy Industries begins plans for a domestic medium tank with a 105 mm gun as well as locally produced artillery, jeeps, transport trucks, and rocket launchers. After debate, the government of Korea agrees not to recognize Israel for the time being until the Palestine issue is settled after a compromise with the Workers Party of Korea to recognize the Republic of China as well as the People's Republic of China. The military is expanded, and continued development continues, with a goal by 1960 to have a military of 500,000 active and 100,000 reserve units. The air force looks to purchase more fighter aircraft, and possibly jet fighters.
  • North Vietnam: We continue the guerrilla war against the capitalists. As mass bombings begin against several American convoys, to force them out of our nation.

In addition, he takes much of the power away from police to arrest and punish arbitrarily, and begins to introduce a trial system, though police are still considers far more oppressive than in the west. The military is partially demobilized, but investment in military tech does not. We work hard on creating a nuclear weapon, in order to deter any capitalist attack on our nation. We successfully detonate a nuclear weapon this year, located in Siberia. It is a plutonium type bomb, with a 20 kiloton yield. Our leader immediately orders more warheads produced, as well as misses to launch them on, and orders a uranium bomb test as well. In addition, we begin building up our Air force and Navy, with several aircraft carriers being built, and many more smaller ships and planes, as we recognize that these two area are probably in bitter need of improvement. We secretly begin to send aid to many Communist nations and revolutions across the globe. Most notably, we send large amounts of aid to North Vietnam, hoping to topple the French rule, and to Greece, though to a lesser extent, as our allies are also heavily supporting the Greek revolution. We also support Communist Factions in Egypt, Pakistan and the Philippines, with several Communist factions starting to grow in all countries.
    • Yugoslavia: We congratulate you and Romania on developing the nuclear bomb and would like the Soviet Union to give us and Romania two bombs for protection and developing our own bombs.
  • Republic of Malaya: We form a nationalist-democracy and name Kuala Lumpur our capital. We begin a major project to turn the area from Kuala Lumpur to Singapura (the new name for Singapore) to a massive urban metropolitan area. Several other cities begin construction. We build up our military forces, and ask for a trade agreement with Japan and Korea. The MRA, MRAF, and MRMC begin a recruitment campaign to bring more soldiers into the cause.

    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama accepts Malaya's offer of a trade agreement.
  • East Germany: Reconstruction continues and the first five-year plan leads to high levels of productivity and employment. The Communist government announces an ambitious plan to rebuild and expand the old German autobahn. We ask the allied powers to end their occupation of Berlin and allow it to be reabsorbed into East Germany.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund a space program in the nation. We continue to send troops to Malaya to defeat the British.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace. We will begin industrialization and we begin to initiate tensions between the Berbers and the Arabic people so that they would not be independent. We will send our diplomats and experts to the nation of Ethiopia to develop the nation in return for a nationalist government and joining SDP. (Mod).
    • Kurdistan reminds Spain that the age of colonization is over and tells it to stay out of the democracies of the developing world. Ethiopia just escaped Italian Fascism; it has no reason to want to be ruled by another European dictator.
    • Spain: Ethiopia is not a democracy but it is an absolute monarchy and unless they change we are not oppressing anyone.
    • Ethiopian Dip (Mod): The Ethiopian empire tells both Kurdistan and Spain to mind its own business. We officially announce our isolation from these politics.
  • Kurdistan continues to develop its economy and military, enjoying its new independence. Employment continues to rise as petroleum reserves are exploited, while foreign professionals continue to pour into Kurdistan as the government offers high wages and benefits. An oil and natural gas refinery is opened this year near Mosul and another rid under construction near Erbil. Exports of petroleum products begin to rise as access to British ports has been negotiated. In the new national elections this year, the National Party loses its majority, and is forced into coalition with the People's Front, a radical nationalist party, which wishes for decolonization to be sped up. The government begins subsidizing manufacturing and institutes assisted immigration plans for European professionals wishing to leave the devastated continent. Kurdistan offers the heads of the Syriac Orthodox and Catholic Church branches refuge from unstable nearby areas in Kurdistan. Accepted (mod)
  • Turkey: Our army and navy grow this year, especially after Hasan Saka's plan to modernize the navy. Our economy also expands as areas in the west are industrialized. In foreign affairs, the government renews its condemnation of the Greek Communist government, and Turkey officially launches its partial naval blockade on all Greek Communist-controlled ports, and calls on Britain to enact their blockade as well. In other news, the issue of Kurdish Turkish land is still a hot-button among conservatives. However, the pro-Annexation faction is dealt serious blow when the Democrats officially recognize Kurdistan as a legitimate country with legitimate lands. The chair of the Democrat Party Gursel Alay, explains the reasoning behind the shift, stating that "Kurdistan is here to stay, and the lands they have are theirs to keep, despite the land traditionally belonging to the Turkish people. It is sad, but it is reality. I will continually fight in Parliament to launch a treaty with Kurdistan in an attempt to get that land back, but for now, we deem it legitimate Kurd land." PM Hasan Saka commends Alay's comments as "sensible and realistic". Saka's deputy PM Suheyl Suheyla echoes Saka's sentiments. In cultural news, the RPP continues supporting women's liberation, mainstream feminism, westernization, and capitalism. 12 new members elected to the Parliament in 1950 were women, a gain of 100% from women elected in 1945. LGBT rights are, however, nonexistent, as even the term 'LGBT' is a foreign word. Most people see gays and lesbians as social transgressors, and defying basic Islam. However, the RPP and Democrats do not comment on this issue. Industrialization is under way in the west, with the infrastructure and transportation networks of cities like Adana begin heavily developed. In terms of religion, the Muslim majority remains very open to Christianity, Judaism, and Yazidism. Because of this tolerance, the general public have no marked ill will towards the official Turkish recognition of Israel, and in fact, many Turkish celebrate the establishment of the state as the final defeat of the horrors of the Holocaust. We also petition the government of Israel for an alliance and an invitation to the SDP and NAC.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The vote for a new flag takes place and results will be in later this year.
  • Italy: More reconstruction of infrastructure and fortification continues. Research into improved weaponry demonstrates progress, with the beginning of the testing of the P 43 bis. We begin investment in industry, hoping to rebuild the economy of our country. We begin constructing cargo ships to facilitate trade with other countries.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation detonates two nuclear bombs in the Atacama desert. A Plutonium and Uranium bomb with an extra three left over with the ability to manufacture another ten weapons over the next six months. The Detonation of the weapons are highly publicized by the press citing the end of the few short years of nuclear primacy. The election season, however, continues with the Federalista candidate Dominic Joao dominates the opinion polls as he gains an overwhelming 75% positive from the country. His more open policy as well as somewhat more friendly to antagonistic nations is given overwhelming support as many are tired of the strong armed ways the Federation was forced to act given its previous lack of allies and political recognition. The Federation continues development of its new weapons systems building up its new jet forces specifically releasing the F-6 shortsword a solid jet aircraft for carrier deployment. The Federation begins development and construction of its new carrier class as well. The Bolivar class Super-Carrier having nearly 25% higher tonnage than the WW 2 era carriers. The development of a more robust submarine fleet begins as well with the Federation navy beginning to push larger more powerful attack submarines. The development of more military hardware also culminates in development of attack aircraft for ground and carrier use, as well as the first development of a Cruise missile. The development of a turbojet powered Cruise missile is expected to yield some results in the next few years. The nation in shock to the destruction of a Federation ship by Cuban insurgents immediately mobilizes its deployed forces on the islands and detaches Cuba as a military adminstrated zone. The Forces immediately begin to comb the island for Communist forces and see some minor success in finding insurgents and ousting them. The Federation begins a more major project of promoting and engaging in nuclear power with expected results in 1956. The Federation recognizes Israel as a state and sends diplomats to handle establishing relations. The population of the Federation reaches 145 million and growing steadily. The Suburban boom while surprising is handled well with thousands of new homes and jobs springing up. Investment into all industries particularly light manufacturing expands significantly. The Federation celebrates its victory in the World Cup.
    • Military Zone of Cuba: General Marcos Almagro is given total operational command over the Cuban emergency and under his forces he begins training a loyalist Cuban force and upping his own equipment reserves in Cuba. He begins moving aerial operations into the countryside to oust Cuban insurgents and also pushes the Espadas, the Federations premier special forces in movements against the insurgents.
  • Yugoslavia: We would like to have two nuclear bombs for helping the Soviet Union developing the nuclear bomb. We ask the Soviet Union and the UN whether we can annex Albania peacefully. We continue to build our military. We aid Communist rebels in Greece and Vietnam. We remain Communist. we bid to host the Olympics.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan to regain our lost industrial capacity before the war. We also use the money to fund construction projects across the northern island of Luzon. Several steel, petro-chemical and textiles factories are under construction, mainly in Manila (Manila annexed the rest of NCR) and its surrounding regions. Sea oil-platforms are also under construction in Western Visayas. We continue stimulating growth on all economic sectors. Commodity trade volume rises.

1951.5

The upper echelons of the USSR disfavor giving nuclear weapons to its satellite states, citing Romanias previous actions in WW2 as well as the potential for the satellite states to use the weapons on the USSR


The British, USSR, and Federation all deploy their first nuclear weapons.


The Israeli forces begin full securing of their independence with the flooding of Jews to their "Holy Land" beginning to develop a noticeable white Jewish population in Israel.


The Ethiopian Empire begins noticeable industrialization process purchasing huge amounts of raw materials on the open market. The empire also begins noticeable militarization.


With the collapse of the Egyptian protectorate, the British Empire in East Africa becomes ever more untenable with talks of releasing the states in the EAU or outright granting them independence going around in minority parties in the British parliament


The French outside of Algeria begin discussing the untenable position of colonialism in Africa and some minority parties begins looking to push decolonization of a good part of the Empire.


The Cuban Communist insurgency continues developing with more and more joining the cause seeking independence from the Federation.

The 1952 Olympics Host voting is ready. For the Summer, choose between London, Rome, and Los Angeles. For the Winter, choose between Sverdlovsk, Lake Placid, and Brasov.

  • Romania: We do not want nuclear weapons. We continue the funding of the Communist Party of Greece. We'd like to discuss the Communist Question with the other nations of the world. We continue expanding our infrastructure and our industry. We begin to study means to get electricity out of nuclear power. We also request some planes from the USSR for us producing them for you.
  • British West Africa: Meanwhile, we continue to improve military and economy. The plan of independence to achieve is still not in the table yet. Some buildings were established like police station, fire station. We recruit British troops, while there was announcement of a flag of British West Africa been seen. Government planned that it's a future flag to be postponed until 1952.0.
    • Nigeria: Mil and eco.
    • British Togo: Mil and eco.
    • British Senegal: Mil and infra.
    • British Liberia: Mil and eco.
  • The United Kingdom: The economy continues to grow and more and more jobs become available to the growing population. The British Army is currently made up of over 2,139,953 soldiers and a vast array of naval and air force units. Joining with the democratic forces in Greece we secure the DMZ and temporarily push back the Communists. We ask Italy and Turkey to begin sending forces onto to the mainland to further aid the Democratic Party. We continue nuclear tests and plan on every country in the EU having at least one nuclear weapon (with some exceptions) by as soon as 1954. We also bid to host the Summer and Winter Olympics. On an unrelated note our beloved king, George VI, begins to feel ill and the doctors suspect he will not live for very much longer. Kurdistan purchases the land of Mesopotamia for £26,412,868.50 which is roughly $30 million in USD.
  • Absolutely no way in HELL can the British maintain an army of two million right now. Thats ridiculous -Feud
    • ​Saudi Arabia Is fully outraged that lands which should belong to muslims, Palestine and Mesopotamia, are being given to Jews and Kurds, instead of the ethnic Arabs that should be independently controlling themselves. We call the purchase of Mesopotamia a colonial effort by the Kurds to take charge of more land, and demand that Britain decolonize the region immediately. We ask as the main term of British decolonization for the colonies of Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, UAE, and Yemen is to vote on whether to become independent or to be integrated into Saudi Arabia. We consider remilitarization.
    • British Diplomacy: We refuse to be ordered around by an incredibly weaker state than us. Kurdistan came to us and asked for the land so if you have a problem with it you'll have to take it up with them. It no longer belongs to us. And we created Israel in order to fulfill your wishes. We have begun decolonisation and Israel was our test subject. We will not be ordered when we will decolonise. We will decolonise in our own time because we do not want another state to turn into what Egypt is becoming.
    • Turkish Dip: We applaud the rhetoric and reasoning behind Britain's words. We also like to point out that while colonialism and imperialism are despicable, barbaric things, hasty decolonization can lead to turmoil, political corruption, and state failure. We think it is a fine idea that Britain wants to spend time, money and resources in order to ensure, to the best of their ability, that decolonized realms survive as democratic, prosperous nations.
    • Saudi Arabia: We are wondering if Britain actually wants to comply with the agreement we made. It was a compromise, yet you're going on your own terms for decolonization, yet we accepted your term, which was demilitarization. We ask for the following, which we believe to be completely rational: First, a detailed plan for decolonization. This is our fourth time asking, and we are increasingly mad that you refuse. It's perfectly reasonable so that we can prepare and we don't have another issue like this one. Next, we'd like you to divide the lands among ethnic lines. The majority of Mesopotamia is more suited to be part of Saudi Arabia, though a sizeable portion is suitable for the Kurds. You gave it all to the Kurds as part of your "decolonization", when there is large ethnic differences, which is reminiscent of colonization. Finally, you stick to your word, meaning that if you say you want colonies going to stable countries, the colonies on the Arabian peninsula (plus the island of Bahrain) go to Saudi Arabia. If those three things are made, we would even consider trading oil with some non-SDP members, and definitely non-aligned countries.
    • British Diplomacy: We are unfortunately unable to give a detailed plan at the moment due to our King's ailment and the parliament working on multiple resolutions and having to deal with uprisings. We have told you that we will definitely be decolonising Kuwait and the UAE but it may take a while. We have been dividing the land ethnically. That's what we did with Israel but you refuse to accept it. We admit that selling the entirety of Mesopotamia to Kurdistan was a bit of a hasty decision but it is out of our hands now. You will have to discuss that with the Kurds. Finally, you are adding new terms to our agreement. We never agreed upon you getting all the land on the peninsula. You said you wanted independent nations and that's what we're aiming to do. We are honouring our promise but if we are too hasty in creating new states war could easily break out in the Middle East.
    • I never agreed on Kurdistan getting land, nor Israel's independence. I agreed on decolonization in Arabia, which you haven't done. This is obviously and issue again. Might we need a second conference? Also, when did Kurdistan even agree to buy Mesopotamia?
    • British Diplomacy: Yes but you agreed on the decolonisation of Arabia. Last time I checked that's where Israel is so I have been fulfilling my promise. No meeting is needed because I am honouring my agreement. If you didn't want a nation of Israel to be created you should have stated it in your terms. If you wanted Mesopotamia you should have stated it in your terms. You did neither of these so my actions did not break any of our promises. I am decolonising which is what you wanted. By the way Kurdistan told me in a private conversation that they wanted to buy the land for $30 million. You can ask them about it.
    • Saudi Arabia: You refusal to cooperate, refusal to negotiate, and refusal to tell us anything you want to do will just bring our countries further apart. I offered you the ability to get Saudi oil, which is no longer on the table. Now, I believe that you have broken the agreement by not cooperating. I technically agreed to demilitarize, which I did, and the terms were not clear, which is why I would like a new round of negotiations to make the terms clearer. If you reject this, then you have broken the terms in our eyes, and we may choose to remilitarize if we so please.
    • Federation Dip: The Federation denounces the current round of decolonization under the British and demands they follow the enumerated terms. If the terms are not met, we will act with all due haste in removing you from the remainder of your Colonies. The British have been given their final warning.
      • British Diplomacy: We are decolinising as planned and we are following the terms. You all just refuse to see it our way. We will continue our plans of decolonisation uninterrupted.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: The Republic of Egypt endorses Saudi Arabias demand of decolonization in the Middle East. It is of utmost concern to Egypt that its Arab brethren are given independence, and the British Empire refrain from practising its policy of imperialism on Arab soil.
      • British Diplomacy: Since when is deconolinising a policy of imperialism?
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. The technology captured in Operation Paperclip are secretly experimented with in an attempt to outpace Soviet and Axis development. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The blockade of the South China Sea continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi and the military pressense in Greece. As the Democrats see falling approval ratings due to their involvement in the Greek Civil War, Congress decides not to press a counter-strike but instead set up a DMZ while helping Turkey to set up a blockade. This action is greatly denounced by Douglas McArthur, who was in charge of the operation there. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The monopoly of the SDP is circumvented by the US by buying natural resources through India, although much oil is now coming from Kurdistan and Iran. The US asks to establish trade relations with Ethiopia.
    • ​Turkish Dip: We thank the US military for aiding our blockade.
      • US Dip: The US Navy is sent to help Turkey in its blockade.
    • Malayan Dip: We invite the United States Pacific Fleet and Air Force to join. the 1953 APNAT Exercise.
    • Federation Dip: We request the United States do not help the British in their current colonial debacle of shafting Saudi Arabia our Ally. While we do agree with the creation of Israel, the under handed tactic of selling the entirety of Iraq and Kuwait to Kurdistan instead of allowing some sort of movement or referendum to choose their place (Either Saudi Arabia, Kurdistan or some independent third state) has led to undue tension and we see this as breaking in the agreement between Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom. We do not wish to threaten the United States during these proceedings but the British cannot be allowed to act without impunity for this dishonorable breaking of a signed treaty agreement.
      • British Diplomacy: First of all, we only gave Mesopotamia to Kurdistan and we have yet to turn Kuwait into an independent state and are not planning on giving it to Kurdistan. Secondly, we have no broken any of the terms. We decolonised Egypt, Israel, and Mesopotamia yet Saudi Arabia is still unhappy. Now they demand to have the remainder of the colonies in Egypt and your allies dare to call us imperialists? If Saudi Arabia did not want a state of Israel or to have Mesopotamia they should've said so. But since they didn't we have broken no terms. We are merely fulfilling our promise.
      • US Diplomacy: We remind the Federationt that Saudi Arabia's demands, quite reasonably, was the decolonizaiton of the region. The nation of Mesopotamia is too small to properly defend itself from exterior aggression, and so was given to Kurdistan who, we might add, is just as much a native state in the Middle East as Arabia.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: The Republic of Egypt requests the United States to be given a loan, preferably a low-interest loan, in order to facilitate the Egyptian construction of the Aswan Dam.
      • US Dip: A loan is affordable from the US government, but we would like to know first how much the Egyptian government needs.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur with the creation of a national guard made up entirely of Portuguese Africans (it numbers 1000 men) as well as military restructuring and replacing of outdated equipment. 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, so far 3000 Europeans have emigrated to the colony settling mostly in Southern Angola. Rhodesia, Portugal, Portuguese Mozambique, France and South Africa are offered membership in the EAU (mod response for non players). The Portuguese administration supports the French presence in Algeria, but is also willing so support a Pied-Noir state if France withdraws from Africa.
    • ​Mozambique: Joins EAU
    • South Rhodesia: Refuses EAU
    • North Rhodesia: Asks for Observor Status
  • Republic of Egypt: Expansion of the Egyptian military, and the state infrastructure continued. The Republic directed funds towards developing the state transport system, seeking to establish a strong and swift railroad system. President Nasser anounced the imposement 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. Meanwhile, the Republic of Egypt also announced its withdrawal from the Nations Against Communism, as it did not wish to be seen as a hostile state by the USSR. Hoping to achieve peaceful and stable relations with all states, whilst promoting the image of a nationalist and prosperous Egypt, President Nasser refrained altogether from siding with any bloc, although he did not make any attempt to conceal Egypts detest for the British. Following the withdrawal of British troops from Egypt during June 1951, large celebrations were held as the Egyptian flag was erected over the Canal Zone. Having successfully achieved control over the administration of the Suez Canal, the Republic of Egypt announced that no Israeli ship would be allowed access through the Canal. Similarly, the Tiran Straits were closed for Israel. Egypt made it known that it would not accept the presence of a Zionist state, in the heart of the Arab world. President Nasser also announced a general ban upon all Communist parties in Egypt, and ended elections. The size of the Egyptian land forces was increased to 250,000 soldiers, with the military divided into four regional commands consisting of Suez, Sinai, Nile Delta and Nile Valley. The remainder of Egypts territory, over 75%, was the sole responsibility of the Frontier Corps.
  • Australian Commonwealth: The Australian Navy has reached a total of 462 vessels this year - an impressive stat for the Oceanic continent-nation. However, we've begun decommissioning many of our outdated vessels to make room for more updated models. The decommissioned ships are up for sale or can be used for scrap metal to build on other ships or other materials. Another 10,000 strong able bodied soldiers are added to the Australian Army, totaling in at 260,000 strong. We continue to build up our infrastructure to take in refugees fleeing from the war torn areas of Indonesia, Malaysia and even some escaping from Indochina. This influx brings in a new group of Dutch, French, English, and some Southeastern Asia demographics to the continent. The construction of our two new aircraft carriers is completed and we are strengthened to a total of four aircraft carriers in our navy. With the independence of India, we pull all our forces from India and bring those troops home. Meanwhile, we focus all of our military efforts in Southeast Asia. Indochina and fighting Malaysian insurgents. The short distance greatly aids us. The Arabians and Middle Easterns in Australia are heavily hated, as they are members of the SDP. The SDP has also begun to be treated as the most vile alliance since the Axis. Anti-SDP advertisement is ran in Australia.
    • New Zealand: Our Army has increased to 65,000.
    • Papua New Guinea: Our Army has increased to 60,000.
    • Malayan Dip: We invite the Australian Navy and Air Force to join the 1953 APNAT Exercise.
  • Vietnamese troops continue the guerrilla war against the French, and again asks Laos and Cambodia to rise up and join Vietnam in driving them out. (MOD RESPONSE)
  • Saudi Arabia: Though we do not want to rekindle tensions with Britain, we become skeptical of their promise to decolonize. They have only decolonized where we do not like, not in Arabia. The two Middle Eastern countries they have decolonized include Israel, which we will not recognize, and Egypt, which seems to be in collapse. We also begin to fear Kurdish expansionism, which we extremely dislike as we planned to not be expansionist and we want freedom for Sunni Muslims. Therefore, we demand a detailed plan for Britain's decolonization. We feel that we have complied with their requests, and they haven't reciprocated. At home, we continue to attempt to industrialize. We continue selling oil exclusively to SDP members, especially the Federation, and we receive manufactured goods in the process. We also continue to build a major highway from Jeddah through Mecca to Riyadh, and a passenger airport in Riyadh. We continue to allow Sunni immigrants of Arab race into the country as immigrants, and we begin to support a major teaching program in mathematics.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask Saudi Arabia to formally recognise Israel as a sovereign state in the Middle East.
    • Saudi Arabia asks Britain to follow our agreement. Recognition of Israel wasn't part of our agreement. Decolonization was half of our agreement, your half. I've demilitarized. Do your part. I demand a detailed plan for decolonization.
    • We hadn't seen the purchase of Mesopotamia. To sum it up. We HATE this purchase and are enraged by it.
    • British Diplomacy: You've wanted us to leave the area and we are. We just would like our former land and people to go to the hands of a stable, democratic Middle Eastern government.
  • Republic of Malaya: Construction of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapura Metropolitan Area continues. Former British airfields in Kuala Lumpur and Singapura are converted into international airports. We continue recruiting for the Armed Forces and reconstruction of several cities. We establish that there will be no state religion as religion should not run the government.
    • British Diplomacy: Since Malaya has not opposed our terms in the Malayan Independence Conference we assume they are fine with them and grant the Republic of Malaya complete independence. We will keep Sarawak and begin moving our troops out of Malaya and Singapore and into the colony of British Sarawak by the end of the year.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: This year, Vladimer Andronikov dies, and many believe he was poised, though the KGB strongly denies it. In his place Josef Putin takes control of our nation, though because his power is contested, a conical is formed. The conical will include 24 no non-elected members, each responsible for a different region in The USSR. Although his leadership is contested, Putin continues with many of Andronikov's reforms, including a more open economy and a less crustal police force. In addition, he puts more money into. The military, in order to compete on the sea with other larger naval powers. Our naval forces reached 294 boats this year, including our first aircraft carrier, with three more carriers being manufactured and plans in the works for as many as 7. We introduce several more planes to our Air force, trying to make a numerically superior force. In addition, training for ground combat forces is increased, in order to have more high quality troops. We continue to Secretly send aid to Veitnam and Greece, and begin sending much aid to Communist factions in Egypt, hoping to incite a Communist rebellion in the nation. With a nuclear test already condested, we begin production of these weapons, as well as misses to carry them in. By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and we already are working on ten to be completed by the end of the year. We begin to work on a hydrogen bomb, believing that would unleash far more destruction than uranium or platinum bombs.
  • Switzerland: The Social Democratic Party, the current opposition, gains 53% of the vote. But, due to most of these in certain seats, they only manage to win 79/196 seats. In the Council of the States, they win a shocking 21 seats, just under the 22 halfway point. The new official opposition, the Free Democratic Party, only obtains 15% of the vote, yet still manage to obtain 58 seats. The Social Democratic Party leader promises to remain in the EU and promote European integration.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 250,000 to 300,000 troops. We will begin industrialization and we begin to initiate tensions between the Berbers and the Arabic people so that they would not be independent. Since the nation of Ethiopia refused our request we begin secretly creating movements to favorably a Fascist movement in Ethiopia or unfavorably independence movements who are Fascist. We will also support Malaysia’s inclusion of Sarawak.
    • British Diplomacy: Sarawak is still a part of the UK. It will not be included in the Republic of Malaya. On an unrelated note we demand that you stop sticking your nose in everyone's business, especially ours and Ethiopia's.
    • Spain: We feel that our nationalist government wants to spread our gifts throughout the world.
    • British Diplomacy: The destructiveness of Fascism is no gift. Leave Ethiopia and our land alone. That is an order.
    • Federation Dip: Or how about you stick to your agreements and don't subversively work around them to your benefit. If I see another threat to Spain this way the Federation will be forced to act.
  • Korea: We continue military development and economic development. Roadways are built to ease transportation. Our first domestic destroyer is complete. There is debate to recognize Israel or not. Elections are planned for 1955. The navy salvages two sunken Japanese submarines and begins to refurbish them. A stock market is planned for Seoul. Kaesong has three high rises planned to house the government. The port at Incheon and Busan sees rapid growth with traffic from Canada, the USA, and India mainly. The military districts are reinforced, and the military is increased by 50,000 in the army, 10,000 in the Navy, and 5000 in the Air Force.
    • Malayan Dip: We invite the Korean Navy and Air Force to join the 1953 APNAT Exercise.
    • Korea: We agree.
  • Turkey: Our navy expands this year, making Adana an important city for naval development. Our army expands as well. Starting in July, we enact a full naval blockade on all Greek Communist controlled ports, and claim that all ships attempting to escape will be fired upon, except for purely civilian vessels. We also pledge to send 27,000 troops to Greece over the course of the next two years, starting with 9000 troops being deployed in 1952.0. We thank the British and Americans for their quick and robust support, and call on them to support Turkey and a Democratic Greece in the near future. In other news, we support the British sale of Mespotamia to Kurdistan, and we continually endorse the existence of Israel. Unfortunately, this also means that Turkey is making a substantial drift away from our ally Saudi Arabia in supporting Kurdistan and Israel. Turkey lambasts Egypt for banning political parties and ceasing all elections, claiming that a Fascistic rise is imminent if Nasser continues this line of actions. In other news, many Turks have a more positive opinion of Kurdistan than years before, signalling that anti-Kurd rhetoric in parliament and pro-annexation factions are dying out.
  • Siam: protesters continue to demonstrate outside of the Royal Palace in Bangkok. With the royal police and military trying to crack them down - but before the crackdown could begin the officers of the FSA emerge with their troops standing by the people. a few hours afters the stand off begins a shot is fired from royalist causing a firefight. Starting a civil war in siam. withe the FSA asking for Federation assistance.
  • People's Republic of China: After nearly a year into the economic crisis, the PRC realises that it needs military resources, and despite the economic aid, we realise this is not enough. As a result, several wargames begin in an attempt to prepare ourselves for defending the nation, and to scare away possible agreessors. As a result, we commence some buildup along the the RoC border to prepare for furhter defense of the nation. Meanwhile, we begin to attempt to start construction projects and various other attempts to generate money via manufacturing, commerce and mining to help restart our economy.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. The vote for a new flag ends and the results are in. The winning design is the Miyaginohagi, which has the Lespedeza thunbergii on it (design is the same as the OTL Flag of Miyagi Prefecture), the now official national flower of Japan.
    • Malayan Dip: We invite the JMSDF and JASDF to join the 1953 APNAT Exercise
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama kindly declines the offer of invitation.
  • PRB(Bulgaria): We send four ships to represent Bulgaria in the APNAT exercise, due to our ties with Malaysia and the USSR, and we formally ask for an alliance with Malaysia. We would be glad if the USSR could station some nuclear weapons to defend Bulgaria.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them wholly to the war reconstruction effort. We demand more economic aid from the two countries. We fund massive construction projects (including a road system linking all major human settlements) on the northern island of Luzon. Several steel, petro-chemical and textiles factories are under construction, mainly in Manila (Manila annexed the rest of NCR) and its surrounding regions, which causes some increasing income disparities between regions. We plan to launch a plan for rural regions with two stages, first one is improving basic living conditions while the second stage focuses on rural infrastructure and increasing community income. To lessen unemployment in Visayas, we build sea oil-platforms are also under construction in Western Visayas. We continue stimulating growth on all economic sectors, with some concern over the sluggish agricultural sector. Commodity trade volume rises rapidly as conflict in Indochina intensifies.
  • Mandate of Iraq: Petroleum is discovered in our territory, we start mining it and shipping it to Europe for high prices. We ask the British to help us building Baghdad. King Faisal asks that we have greater autonomy in The British Empire, he also asks the UK give us weaponry if we ever get attacked by the USSR.
    • British Diplomacy: We will help you to build and give you the autonomy you desire. We also begin shipping weaponry and move troops that were previously in Mesopotamia to help protect you.
    • Iraq/Mesopotamia was just SOLD Mesopotamia makes up the good majority of Iraq. -Feud
  • Tibet: We believe that tensions may continue to rise between our people and China. We are well aware that China is stronger than us and we may have to increase our military spending. We are also trying to make allies with other countries. We are also looking to join the UN if possible.
    • British Diplomacy: We recognise Tibet as a free state and begin sending them military supplies and troops via Myanmar in order to defend if the Chinese were to invade.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund a space program in the nation. We continue to send troops to Malaya to defeat the British.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
    • British Diplomacy: Um ... Malaya is independent now so I dunno why you are still sending troops there.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to build and deploy new nuclear weapons and begins major processes of researching missile technology as delivery methods for the weapons. The Election season, however, continues with the Federalista candidate Dominic Joao dominates the opinion polls as he gains an overwhelming 75% positive from the country. His more open policy as well as somewhat more friendly to antagonistic nations is given overwhelming support as many are tired of the strong armed ways the Federation was forced to act given its previous lack of allies and political recognition. The Federation continues development of its new weapons systems building up its new jet forces specifically releasing the F-6 shortsword a solid jet aircraft for carrier deployment. The Federation begins development and construction of its new carrier class as well. The Bolivar class Super-Carrier having nearly 25% higher tonnage than the WW 2 era carriers. The development of a more robust submarine fleet begins as well with the Federation navy beginning to push larger more powerful attack submarines. The development of more military hardware also culminates in development of attack aircraft for ground and carrier use, as well as the first development of a Cruise missile. The development of a turbojet powered Cruise missile is expected to yield some results in the next few years. The nation in shock to the destruction of a Federation ship by Cuban insurgents immediately mobilizes its deployed forces on the islands and detaches Cuba as a military adminstrated zone. The Forces immediately begin to comb the island for Communist forces and see some minor success in finding insurgents and ousting them. The Federation begins a more major project of promoting and engaging in nuclear power with expected results in 1956. The Federation recognizes Israel as a state and sends diplomats to handle establishing relations. The population of the Federation reaches 145 million and growing steadily. The Suburban boom while surprising is handled well with thousands of new homes and jobs springing up. Investment into all industries particularly light manufacturing expands significantly.
    • Military Zone of Cuba: General Marcos Almagro is given total operational command over the Cuban emergency and under his forces he begins training a loyalist Cuban force and upping his own equipment reserves in Cuba. He begins moving aerial operations into the countryside to oust Cuban insurgents and also pushes the Espadas, the Federations premier special forces in movements against the insurgents.
  • Yugoslavia: We ask the USSR whether we could get some nuclear information to set up pur own nuclear program with Romania. We ask the UsSR whether we could peacefully annex Albaina. We aid Communist revolutions all around the world especially in Greece, Cuba and Vietnam. We build our military. We build our infrastructure and our technology. (Posted for A-H -Feud)
  • The Federation of India: We accept Korea's trade offer. Last year elections were held, and the leader of the Indian National Congress, Jawaharial Nehru, becomes India's First Prime Minister. Nehru thanks the people of India, and immediately embarks on a path of massive reform for India, implementing centralization for the Federal government. With massive investment from the Federation of the Americas and the United States, Nehru invests in reforming the economy, in which Nehru implements a mixed economy, where the public sector can coexist with the private sector. Nehru makes a public sector of the nation's resources such as steal, iron, coal, and power so he can use it to build the nation's infrastructure, expanding the nation's roads and railroads, with a focus on education so the Indian population is learned and can secure a better future for themselves and increase the standard of living in India by contributing to the economy more in the future. These public sector resources are also used to build and fund factories heavily in order to be heavily industrialized. This public sector becomes highly regulated. The private sector, however, is deregulated and competition between Hindu and Muslim businesses is encouraged, expanding the private sector. Foreign companies are also deregulated and are encouraged in our nation and we welcome more investment. Meanwhile, land reform coincides with heavy industrialization, in order to increase the yield of wheat and rice. Meanwhile, Nehru introduces laws against the Hindu caste system and increases women's rights. These massive reforms have increased the standard of living dramatically as well as the nation's wealth. Infrastructure and industry continues to be improved, and with this money flows in which is invested in education, and thus the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur is founded. These reforms result in a period of economic growth. Nehru, however, is worried that the state of the world is unstable, and a major war may break out soon, noting the tensions of the Middle East. Because of this, plans to reform the military are put into place next year.

  • Republic of Egypt: Expansion of the Egyptian military, and the state infrastructure continued. The Republic directed funds towards developing the state transport system, seeking to establish a strong and swift railroad system. President Nasser anounced the imposement of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers; minimum wages, etc. The size of the Egyptian land forces was increased to 250,000 soldiers, with the military divided into four regional commands consisting of Suez, Sinai, Nile Delta and Nile Valley. The remainder of Egypts territory, over 75%, was the sole responsibility of the Frontier Corps. President Nasser joined Saudi Arabia, and the Federation in demanding immediate British withdrawal from the Middle East, and expressed concern in regards to the British military buildup in Israel. Meanwhile, Egypt 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 Tourism and Textile Manufacturing Industries.
  • British West Africa: We continue to build economy and military, while some roads began to built to connect some cities. The troops also been recruited as while the Government announces the flag of British West Africa (the flag is been seen on British West Africa page of Dawn of War).
  • Romania: We send some ships for the military training in the Pacific. We support Communists in Cuba and Greece. We want to talk about the Communist Question. As we approach our democratic elections, we rise living standards.
  • Republic of Malaya: The construction of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapura Metropolitan Area continues, with the projected finish date in early 1957. We continue building up our armed forces and restore several old British and Japanese vessels to use as part of our coast guard and navy. Regulations on health and sanitation are put in place as living standards begin to rise. We also institute compulsory education from Grades K-9. Secondary education is optional but recommended. We begin construction of Kuala Lumpur University and University of Malaya, Singapura. More roads are paved and we begin construction of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapura Highway, the M1 Highway. Some cities in the Siam-Malay Border begin rapid urbanisation as five Metropolitan areas are planned to be completed by June 1963. Several more highways and freeways are in the planning process. Half of the domestic terminals in Kuala Lumpur International Airport are complete, with the entire airport scheduled for completion in 1956 and first operation in 1957.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. The technology captured in Operation Paperclip are secretly experimented with in an attempt to outpace Soviet and Axis development. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The blockade of the South China Sea continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi and the military pressense in Greece. The DMZ policy sees some backlash in Congress, as it is felt that the Communists could easily be overrun if faced with a coutner-offensive. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The monopoly of the SDP is circumvented by the US by buying natural resources through India, although much oil is now coming from Kurdistan and Iran. The US asks to establish trade relations with Ethiopia. (mod, please)
    • Ethiopian Diplomacy: We decline. We have internal matters to see to.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: The Republic of Egypt requests a loan of $15 million.
      • US Diplomacy: Congress approves of a loan of $15 million plus 0.03% annual interest to the Republic of Egypt.
  • Saudi Arabia: We ask all SDP members to participate in the 1952 Southern Defense Pact Meeting, and tell all other countries that nobody may look atthe occurances of those meetings. We are increasingly appalled at the British refusal to cooperate or negotiate, and believe that they have broken and therefore nullified our agreement. We authorize the Federation sending in more troops to their military bases in Saudi Arabia. We ask Kurdistan to sell us the ethnically Arab portions of Mesopotamia, willing to pay 1% extra per square mile than they did. We will not recognize Israel, though we will also not be militant towards it. We believe that Arab Muslims deserve to be in charge of the land of Palestine, and that Zionism is Jewish imperialism of land which is holy to us. We offer to Mesopotamian Arabs Saudi citizenship. Our highway from Riyadh to Jeddah through Mecca is now complete, and we also wish to build a Trans-Arabian railway, which will run from Jeddah through Mecca and Riyadh to Dammam. We hope the profits from passengers in this railway can go into industrialization programs, and we begin to see moderate growth of the cities of Mecca, Riyadh and Jeddah.
    • ​Turkish Dip: We ask the Saudis to consider Turkey's Suheyla Plan (found on the 1952 SDP meeting page) before committing to any sale.
  • The United Kingdom: On February 6th of this year our beloved King George VI dies. Elisabeth II returns to the UK to mourn her father's death with the rest of the country and is crown queen of England shortly after. We begin to move more military to the Middle East, especially to Israel, in preparation for a possible war and we ask other members of the EU to begin sending soldiers. We also send 3000 troops into Greece to aid those already stationed there and the Greek, Turkish, and American soldiers. We successfully continue the build up of nuclear arms and begin sending some to our closest allies, specifically those in Scandinavia who are bordering the giant that is the USSR. Queen Elisabeth formally invites all old and new (there's a lot) members to the EU meeting which will be taking place in Oslo this year. She also inquires as to when the permanent headquarters will be finished. We also plan on giving Kuwait complete independence by the end of the year. The United Kingdom requests an embassy in Ethiopia (MOD NEEDED).
    • Just a note, according to OTL info the maximum amount of troops you should be able to field around this time without a total war in effect is about 800,000 any more and its gone. -Feud
    • East Germany Diplomacy: We ask to join the EU as an observer member
    • British Diplomacy: You may join but you are not allowed to leak information to the USSR or other Communist states.
  • Ethiopian Dip: We decline. Your colonialism in the area alongside your European friends has done nothing but hard the Africa People. We want no part of you and you shall have no part of us.
  • Korea: We support decolonization efforts, but are concerned about growing instability in the Middle East. Repair work continues on the two salvaged submarines. A plan is made for a light aircraft carrier. The destroyer is launched on schedule and is deployed to the west coast. The military begins to plan to expand the Marine Corps to increase naval warfare. A coast guard has been proposed, but currently both roles are taken on by the Navy. Construction continues in Kaesong and Incheon as well as Seoul. The KWP supports the Vietnamese Communist rebels and sends money to help them. The federal government supports the rebels if they form an inclusive government where all political groups will be respected.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. Elections for a new Prime Minister takes place, and results should come in later this year.
  • Yemen: King Ahmad Bin Yahya of Yemen declares independence from the British Protectorate and demands that the British leave the Kingdom of Yemen. The new state requests entry into SDP and trade relations with the Federation and Saudi Arabia. We start the construction of a militia using homemade weapons.
    • British Diplomacy: You are still apart of the UK therefore you cannot join the SDP nor ask for a trade agreement with Saudi Arabia.
    • Yemen Dip: The Colony of Aden is British. North Yemen is its own country.
    • British Diplomacy: Look at the map and the nations. There is no mention of North Yemen or the British Colony of Aden on either. All of Yemen is under our control until we give it independence, which, after this fiasco, won't be happening anytime soon.
    • Yemen Dip: Pick up a book and read that the Mutawakkilite Kingdom of Yemen or North Yemen has existed since 1918 and either you set up a timetable for decolonization of Yemen or more protests will follow.
    • British Diplomacy: I never denied the existence of the Kingdom of Yemen, I just told you it was under my control. We will not be ordered around by you. We are decolonising in our own time.
    • Yemen Dip: The Kingdom of Yemen is not under your control and never was it is separate from the British Protectorate. Your a bunch of Imperialists and are impeding the rights of the Yemen people. We demand either a timetable or a referendum on decolonization since you don't have a right to be in Yemen in the first place.
    • Yemen OOC: OK, so I talked to Mod and although in OTL I am right, in ATL you're right - there is only one Yemen. So I will rewrite my post and apologize for my mistake.
    • British Diplomacy: That's fine. Just a little misunderstanding that could happen to anyone :)
  • Tibet: Our country is on the path of a severe drought and the cost of water is growing faster than normal. Our economy is also showing signs of decline. And also, an earthquake hit us and badly hurt our leader. He is in the hospital, and we are uncertain if he will live the light of day. We might need more countries for aid, especially when the Chinese military is growing every day.
    • British Diplomacy: More and more soldiers from the UK begin pouring into Tibet and securing the border.
    • No Freaking way. You barely have enough combat troops to maintain your empire etc etc much less send troops to a country that would be essentially impossible for you to reach without the consent of India. -Feud
    • British Diplomacy: Our army has been growing tremendously over the past few turns and we are able to get to Tibet via British Myanmar so we will help them.'
    • It doesn't matter. You just got through a humongous war (WW II) and it will take more than a few years to build up a strong military. Secondly, when the head mod says no, there's no wiggle room. - Cookie.
    • Because you can totally totally ship a modern army through the Himalayan Mountains. Good luck. It's still no. -Feud
    • The Federation of India sees the plight of Tibet and offers to send foreign aid to it, giving it water as well as investing in Tibet's industry in order to improve its economy. We also offer a trade agreement.
  • Vietnam continues fighting against France, and guerrilla warfare increases, with the goal of forcing the west to leave Vietnam, once and for all.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 300,000 to 330,000 troops. We create the territories of Spanish North Africa and Spanish Gabon which we be divided into a Berber province, Tarif province, Moroccan Arab province, Hassinya Arab province, Imerguan province, and Zenega province to settle any ethnic disputes.
    • Spanish North Africa: We will quell any tensions of independence by allowing Berbers and both Arabs five representatives while we give Tarif three representatives and the other two one representative each. This governing body will control all affairs of Spanish West Africa with a representative from Spain. The body will be able to guide the affairs but if anything displeases the government, we can overrule the issue. We begin to recruit troops from our territories to create an army of 50,000 people. We will begin to build settlements on the coast for Spanish immigrants.
    • Spanish Gabon: We will begin to create farms to industrialize Gabon since there is very little workable land. We will also create a council of representatives to govern the colony. We will give Fang ten representatives, Kota, Sira, Myene, Punu and Lumbu two each. representatives and the others one each. We will also recruit an army of 30,000 people.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur with the creation of a national guard made up entirely of Portuguese Africans (it numbers 1500 men) as well as military restructuring and replacing of outdated equipment. 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, so far 5000 Europeans have emigrated to the colony settling mostly in Southern Angola. With rising tensions in Algeria, the colonial government decides to secretly send supplies, weapons and military training to Pied-Noir nationalists and militants with the hopes of establishing a white state in north Africa. The government begins to encourage the expansion of heavy industry in Southern Angola.</span>
  • Portugal actively prevented industrialization and you are on colonial lock down - no way you can send anything abroad -Feud
  • Would Portugal allow me to have a colonial assembly elected by white Portuguese Africans?
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to push its development of nuclear weapons heavily particularly getting up to 30 weapons at this point now. The nuclear power program continues as well with the noticeable push by the military to use it on ships. The Federation continues development of its new weapons systems building up its new jet forces specifically releasing the F-6 shortsword a solid jet aircraft for carrier deployment. The Federation begins development and construction of its new carrier class as well. The Bolivar class Super-Carrier having nearly 25% higher tonnage than the WW 2 era carriers. The development of a more robust submarine fleet begins as well with the Federation navy beginning to push larger more powerful attack submarines. The development of more military hardware also culminates in development of attack aircraft for ground and carrier use, as well as the first development of a Cruise missile.

Dominic Joao Wins the presidency pushing the Federalistas into power and solidifying a further unification power into the nation's politics.
    • Military Zone of Cuba: Will post after work.
  • People's Republic of China: As the increase in military buildup continues, we decide to mobilise them on the RoC border to scare off attackers as part of the wargames. Manufacture on military goods, and agriculture is increased. Exports via the mining and manufacturing industry are also increased, while consruction of large ships for the PLAN becomes an important process in the PRC. We begin a major crackdown on suspected RoC supporters, and also suspected political dissidents and begin to build additional fortifications on the border with the RoC.
    • Chinese (PRC) Diplomacy: We decide to ask for trade agreements with the Communist nations of Earth.
    • East Germany Diplomacy: we agree to your offer of a trade agreement.
  • Norway: We build more jets for the Norwegian Air Force, we start to improve infrastructure and prototype more missiles. We secretly place nuclear missiles in a remote location of Norway in Hammerfest.
  • East Germany: Reconstruction is declared over with industrial production back to prewar levels. The autobahn continues to be expanded. The grow created by the first five-year plan begins to stagnate and Pieck starts to lose much of his support from the party. Hoping to improve relations with West Germany we ask to set up an embassy in their capital (Mod response). We also begin to consider joining the EU as an observer state.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them wholly to the war reconstruction effort. We demand more economic aid from the two countries. We fund massive construction projects (including a road system linking all major human settlements) on the northern island of Luzon. Several steel, petro-chemical and textiles factories are under construction, mainly in Manila (Manila annexed the rest of NCR) and its surrounding regions, which causes some increasing income disparities between regions. We plan to launch a plan for rural regions with two stages, first one is improving basic living conditions while the second stage focuses on rural infrastructure and increasing community income. To lessen unemployment in Visayas, we build sea oil-platforms are also under construction in Western Visayas. We continue stimulating growth on all economic sectors, with some concern over the sluggish agricultural sector. Commodity trade volume rises rapidly as conflict in Indochina intensifies.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Tetsu Katayama agrees to give more economic aid to the Philippines.
  • Turkey: Adana continues to serve as the de facto center of the naval development program, while places like Izmir, Anakara, and Istanbul serve as the primary centers of army expansion. Our economy expands in these cities as well, fueling industrialization in the west of Turkey. Militarily, we send 9,000 troops to Greece in order to aide Greek democracy forces in early 1952, and they land at Kavala. We will send another 9000 troops starting in July. We also send more ships to maintain the blockade. In the 1952 SDP meeting , we ask our allies in the SDP to aide our blockade and send troops to help the Greek democracy fighters. Also in the SDP meeting, we introduce the Suheyla Plan in an effort to both affirm Britain's sale of Mandatory Iraq to Kurdistan as well as support the goals of Saudi Arabia. During the SDP meeting, we also put forth our own vision of what the main SDP ideology should be. Turkey believes that the SDP should broadcast a message of anti-imperialism and decolonization, but also a message of democracy, peace, and co-operation. We then affirm our support of Israel and Kurdistan. In a move that could be controversial, we call on Spain and Saudi Arabia to end their anti-democratic and Fascistic regimes, and the Federation to curb its nationalism. In other news, the RPP support the Suheyla Plan, and its namesake, Deputy PM Suheyl Suheyla, speaks glowingly of it. The Democrats criticize the plan heavily, claiming that the RPP are being too friendly with Kurdistan and should be launching negotiations to retake lost land.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: This year, Vladimer Andronikov dies, and many believe he was poisoned though the KGB strongly denies it. In his place Josef Putin takes control of our nation, though because his power is contested, a council is formed. The council will include 24 non-elected members, each responable for a different region in The USSR. Although his leadership is contested, Putin continues with many of Andronikov's reforms, including a more open economy and a less brutal police force. In addition, he puts more money into The military, in order to compete on the sea with other larger naval powers. Our naval forces reached 301 boats this year, including three aircraft carriers, with three more carriers being manufactured and plans in the works for as many as 7. We introduce several more planes to our Air force, trying to make a numerically superior force. In addition, training for ground combat forces is increased, in order to have more high quality troops. We continue to Secretly send aid to Vietnam and Greece, trying to halt capitalist advances as much as possible, and keep our Communist Allies in power. We also send large amounts of aid to the People's Republic of China, in order to help them with their slow economy. End Secret With a nuclear test already condested, we begin production of these weapons, as well as missiles to carry them. By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and we already are working on ten to be completed by the end of the year. We begin to work on a hydrogen bomb, believing that would unleash far more destruction than uranium or platinum bombs. So far, we have made 30 nuclear weapons, ten of which are capable of hitting the USA. We also begin to build infrastructure for this years Olympic Games, and send athletes to the Summer Games.
  • Iran: Massive petroleum reserves are discovered in our territory, and we swiftly begin to mine it out of the ground and sell it to EU and USA for high prices. Our government declares the modernisation and industlisation acts. We improve our military, fund our infrastructure and start creating industrial areas all around us. We request help from the USA to help us modernize.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund scientists for building space stuff for the future. Aaron Klein starts the production of fixing up the country even more by fixing the roads, making national parks, fixing schools, and building nuclear power plants. With all the building unemployment goes down to 1%. We bring down the drinking age to 18. The voting age is brought down to 18 also. Anyone can vote in the nation that is over 18. College is practically free for students since money is hard for them to make.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.

Federation of India: Seeing the unstable state of the world, Nehru shifts focus from social policies to building up and modernizing the military and our industry becomes dedicated to this military build up. The main focus of this build up is to ensure naval dominance in the Indian Ocean. In terms of destroyers, we currently have the INS Ranjit, the INS Rana, and the INS Rajput and construction begins on the INS Godavari, the INS Gomali, and the INS Ganga, all of which are destroyers, for 1953. We have one cruiser, the INS Delhi and one frigate, the INS Tir. Our sloops include the INS Kaveri, the INS Sutlej, the INS Jamuna, and the INS Krisna. Our corvettes include the INS Bombay, the NS Bengal, and the INS Madras. Military academies are built to train and modernize our military, and we have a military of 500,000 soldiers on active duty and 500,000 on reserves. This modernization of our military goes hand in hand with improving our infrastructure and a boom in our industry.

President Nasser anounced the imposement of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers; minimum wages, etc. President Nasser announced his visit to the Soviet Union, to discuss trade and cooperation between Egypt and the Soviets. The visit was also aimed at securing Soviet funding for the Aswan Dam, and as well as other classified subjects. Meanwhile, Egypt 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 Tourism and Textile Manufacturing Industries. Similar to the Ethiopian Empire, Egypt also began to fund separatist movements in French Libya, French Transjordan, and British Sudan.

Instead, Egypt proposes to sign an arms deal with the United States, hoping to secure the sale of weaponry and armaments for the Egyptian army.
  • Republic of Malaya: The East and North districts of Kuala Lumpur are almost complete. Construction begins in Singapura starting from Singapura International Airport with Highway M5 going into the mainland. More ships are salvaged and we request ships from Japan so we can build up our navy. We also request planes and weapons from the United States. Old British and Japanese tanks are found during construction and refurbished and rearmed to be used by the MRA. Singapura's Pasir Ris and Sepang residential complexes are rebuilt and we begin filling in those complexes with residence. Living conditions continue to improve. We institute a school system to that of Japan and introduce a Ministry of Education to the system. The drinking age is set to age 20 and the legal voting age is 18. The legal working age for citizens of Malaya is 16, 15 with parental consent. The bank of Malaya is set up and two currencies are set into circulation, the Malayan Ringgit and the Singapura Pound. We denominate the banknotes by $10, $20, $50, $100, $500, $1000 and $10,000. Coinage is $1, $2, $5, $10. More jobs are created as more and more construction projects pop up and the Ministry of Health and Public Safety is given reforms to improve the conditions in Malaya.

We continue to Secretly send aid to Vietnam and Greece, trying to halt capitalist advances as much as possible, and keep our Communist Allies in power. We also send large amounts of aid to the People's Republic of China, in order to help them with their slow economy. End Secret With a nuclear test already conducted, we begin production of these weapons, as well as missiles to carry them in. By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and we already are working on ten to be completed by the end of the year. We begin to work on a hydrogen bomb, believing that would unleash far more destruction than uranium or platinum bombs. So far, we have made 45 nuclear weapons, 18 of which are capable of hitting the USA. We also begin to build infrastructure for this years Olympic game, and send athletes to the summer games.
  • British West Africa: More of our troops recruited and more buildings began to build, thus infrastructure continues to improve and also its military. This year some roads and airports began to build as well, to connect the cities further purpose, with the railroads in progress. It could gain more possibility for transport to bordered countries.
  • Romania: We continue expanding our army, navy and air force. We want to make a trade agreement with the Ethiopian state. We continue supporting the Communists in Greece.
  • Kurdistan, having purchased Mesopotamia, quickly acts to secure the territory and establish base of support. The very lightly populated western desert areas are annexed into Kurdistan, except for a large part which becomes the autonomous Assyrian Protectorate. The most heavily Arab-populated areas are organized into a Provisional Republic of Mesopotamia, including Baghdad and most major cities (except for the coast, which remains Kurdish-governed. A power-sharing arrangement is created between Shias and Sunnis in the region, and a referendum on the Provisional Republic's fate is scheduled for two years from now. Meanwhile, the Kurdish military continues to grow. A railway begins construction to link Kurdistan proper to the Persian Gulf, with many Kurds moving into the area to work the railway. Kurdistan proposes to turn southern Sunni Iraq, including the coast, into a jointly governed area with Saudi Arabia.
    • The Assyrian Protectorate is established in the western portion of the territories bought from Britain. Ethnic Assyrians, as well as other Christians uncomfortable in Muslim-majority eastern Mesopotamia, pour into the lightly-populated area in thousands. The Assyrian Legion is established as the national army and a provisional government is set up, with the area electing delegates to the Kurdish parliament.
    • Saudi Arabia accepts this offer. We hope to split oil profits with the Kurds in that region, allow the Kurds complete access to the port, and have the Kurds govern the Christians and Saudi Arabia govern the Sunnis.
  • Austria We declare a republic. We request 30 Mig-3 fighters from Russia.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war. Elections for a new Prime Minister are finished and results are in. Kawakami Jotaro from the Social Democratic Party of Japan (a centre-left party with policy of moderate social-democracy) is elected in.
  • The United Kingdom: We continue to move military into the Middle-East. Our GDP continues to rise as well as our population and number of soldiers in the service. We continue sending supplies to Greece and building up our ETA nuclear arsenal. Queen Elisabeth II would like to remind all members of the EU that our third meeting is taking place in Oslo now.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur with the creation of a national guard made up entirely of Portuguese Africans (it numbers 2,000 men) as well as military restructuring and replacing of outdated equipment. 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, so far 9,000 Europeans have emigrated to the colony settling mostly in Southern Angola. With the colonial lockdown we send diplomats to Portugal to ask for the ability to have a limited colonial assembly, elected by white Africans, but ultimately can be overturned by any decisions from the homeland (Mod Response). In other news a book has been released by a white angolan nationalist group, titled "A candle in the dark continent" which explores the Angolan identity and the ultimate need for independence from Portugal if the current political situation doesn't change, despite the best efforts of the government to censor and take the book out of circulation it becomes popular with upper and middle class whites.
    • Portugal Dip: An independent assembly is allowed for legislation, but control of the military is suspended from this office
  • Tibet: The drought doesn't hit as much of the country as expected and we begin attempts to industrialize the country. The leader survives but loses his arm, breaks his legs and nearly breaks his spinal cord. He is blinded, but he might die in a few years due to severe disabilities. We ask that more countries can give us aid, and we ask Brtian if we can join the UN.
    • British Diplomacy: You may join the UN. We ask India to send aid to Tibet as well as members of the EU.
  • Yemen: King Yahya declares Yemen an independent state of Britain and that all British troops must leave the nation as soon as possible. If the British continue to attempt to influence our nation we will fight to drive out you imperialists. We would like to join the SDP and request the presences of Saudi Arabian and Federation troops in our new independent nation as well as a loan to invest in infrastructure to be paid back over five years.
    • British Diplomacy: We will respect your king and begin moving our troops out of Yemen. We would like to keep on good terms with the kingdom by establishing a trade agreement.
    • Yemen Dip: We would be happy to establish trade relations although cannot trade oil. Our King would like to personally thank you for leaving and respecting his authority as well as awaiting to hear the decolonization of other Middle Eastern states in due course.
    • Spain: The SDP shall consider your application while Spain will give you a loan.
    • Yemen: Can we pay it back in oil since you don't have that as a natural resource yourself.
    • Saudi Arabia votes in favor of Yemeni membership in the SDP. We send in 2000 troops and would like to set up one military base in Yemen.
    • Federation: We also support the admittance of Yemen into the SDP. We will assign forces to build a base in Yemen shortly.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 330,000 to 340,000 troops.
    • Spanish North Africa: This governing body will control all affairs of Spanish West Africa with a representative from Spain. The body will be able to guide the affairs but if anything displeases the government, we can overrule the issue. We begin to recruit troops from our territories to create an army of 50,000 to 60,000 people. We will begin to build settlements on the coast for Spanish immigrants specifically to the cities of Dakhla and Sidi Ifni and we expect to pull 10,000 people for each settlement. We apply to join the EAU on advice of Spain.
    • 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 30,000 to 35,000 people. We will send a Spanish Governor in the area for feedback. We apply to join the EAU on advice of Spain.
    • EAU: North Africa and Gabon are allowed into the EAU.
  • Australian Commonwealth: The Australian Navy has reached a total of 462 vessels this year - an impressive stat for the Oceanic continent-nation. However, we've begun decommissioning many of our outdated vessels to make room for more updated models. The decommissioned ships are up for sale or can be used for scrap metal to build on other ships or other materials. Another 10,000 strong able bodied soldiers are added to the Australian Army, totaling in at 260,000 strong. We continue to build up our infrastructure to take in refugees fleeing from the war torn areas of Indonesia, Malaysia and even some escaping from Indochina. This influx brings in a new group of Dutch, French, English, and some Southeastern Asia demographics to the continent. The construction of our two new aircraft carriers is completed and we are strengthened to a total of four aircraft carriers in our navy. With the independence of India, we pull all our forces from India and bring those troops home. Meanwhile, we focus all of our military efforts in Southeast Asia. The short distance greatly aids us. The Arabians and Middle Easterns in Australia are heavily hated, as they are members of the SDP. The SDP has also begun to be treated as the most vile alliance since the Axis. Anti-SDP advertisement is ran in Australia.
    • New Zealand: Our Army has increased to 65,000.
    • Papua New Guinea: Our Army has increased to 60,000.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. Much federal funding is poured into developing long-range nuclear missiles, as well as extra-terrestrial rockets. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The blockade of the South China Sea continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi and the military pressense in Greece. The Democrats are elected out of office with Republican Thomas E. Dewey becoming President. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The monopoly of the SDP is circumvented by the US by buying natural resources through India, although much oil is now coming from Kurdistan and Iran. President Dewey works hard to promote democratic independence movements around the world, particularly in Indochina, Indonesia, Algeria, and Sudan. In a speech before the United Nations, President Dewey states that "the funeral of colonialims pepared by Monroe has at last seen its final nail". The US now asks the colonial powers of Europe to grant their colonies democratic governments, or see them lost by force.
    • Federation Dip: Let them lose their colonies on their own Terms, the Federation in particular sees certain territories such as Angola, Mozabique, as well as Algeria and Libya as part of the home Metropole of these countries.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund scientists for building space stuff for the future. Aaron Klein continues the production of fixing up the country even more by fixing the roads, making national parks, fixing schools, and building nuclear power plants. With all the building going on unemployment continues to go down to 1%. We bring down the drinking age to 18. The voting age is brought down to 18 also. Anyone can vote in the nation that is over 18. College is practically free for students since money is hard for them to make.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
  • Vietnam continues fighting for its independence, and with both Laos and Cambodia now joining the fight to drive out the French, Ho Chi Minh proposes the formation of the Indochinese Anti-Colonial Revolutionary Front, which will have the sole goal of driving out France.
    • Laotian and Cambodian Dip: We both refuse saying we do not support Communism in any form and want independence in a different state.
  • Italy: We continue rebuilding infrastructure, with a completion date projected for early 1954. Italian scientists continue to contribute to the ETA, and propose what could eventually become an ICBM. We continue investing in trade and industry, with economic growth low but rising. Development of a replacement for V-2s begins, with the beginning of research into superior rockets.
  • Saudi Arabia: Saudi Arabia is happy with our deal with Kurdistan, and we see some profits from oil in Mesopotamia. We continue to build our railway from Jeddah to Dammam through Mecca and Riyadh. We consider selling oil to all non-Communist nations, primarily because of the immediate economic boom that will occur, which will allow us to grow as an economy and become closer to self-sufficiency in the future. Our king, Abdulaziz ibn Saud, dies this year. He is succeeded by Saud, his son, though another son, Faisal, is seen as another candidate for the throne.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them wholly to the war reconstruction effort. We demand more economic aid from the two countries. We fund massive construction projects (including a road system linking all major human settlements) on the northern island of Luzon. Several steel, petro-chemical and textiles factories are under construction, mainly in Manila (Manila annexed the rest of NCR) and its surrounding regions, which causes some increasing income disparities between regions. We plan to launch a plan for rural regions with two stages, first one is improving basic living conditions while the second stage focuses on rural infrastructure and increasing community income. To lessen unemployment in Visayas, we build sea oil-platforms are also under construction in Western Visayas. We continue stimulating growth on all economic sectors, with some concern over the sluggish agricultural sector. Commodity trade volume rises rapidly as conflict in Indochina intensifies.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues development of its weapons systems now with nearly 55 nuclear weapons and counting. The Nation continues rocketry research looking to develop ballistic missiles to carry a nuclear weapon. This particularly makes some headway. The development of the Federation's cruise missile continues as well. With the independence of Yemen the Federation begins to look for a suitable location for a Naval base/Naval Air station with the capabilities of housing a Federation battlegroup, a Marine Expeditionary unit of about 3000 will be housed there as well. The Bolivar class supercarrier has its first launch, the FAS Bolivar which is launched with a crew complement of 4100, an ability to house nearly 130 aircraft and is to make up part of the core of the next fleet until nuclear powered carriers enter service which is put somewhere near 1958. The Federation continues development of its aerial jet fleet pushing its new jet aircraft into service armed with some of its new missiles tagged along the sides of aircraft even though the missiles are crude and not the best. The Federation continues it jet armament of its navy as well replacing all prop driven fighters/interceptors from the navy and working on making new attack aircraft as well. The Federation seeing the situation in Cuba deteriorating avoid letting it devolve any further and begins shipping equipment by the shipload to Cuba as well as beefing up the Cuban garrison from its paltry 20,000 to nearly 100,000. This movement in forces is justified to the people in maintaining this kind of force in Cuba by preventing the spread of ANY Communist to the Western hemisphere. President Dominic Joao calls the President of the US personally to communicate this transfer in force is a measure against the Communist insurgency in Cuba and not a movement in any way against the US. The Federation continues the mass advancement of its industry in all aspects with its heavy industries expanding significantly as well as its light industries. The Federation populace shows clear signs of support for the resolution to sell oil to non Communist nations. The Federation declares its intent to protect Ethiopias independence and any intervention in the country by an enemy or an ally will be seen as a violation of this declaration. The Federations highway construction continues with many coastal cities linking up and the Southern Tran-Continental highway finishing as well linking San Salvaćion with Santiago, and the multiple Metropolis cities in the East. This begins the construction of the Andean Coastal highway to link all the Western coastal cities. The Federation also begins to encourage the movement to build up the Metro train lines for multiple cities particularly Rio, San Salvaćion, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Asuncion, and Sao Paulo/Santos, particularly to push the massive amount of population this core area has in the South.
    • Military Zone of Cuba: With the Federation dramatically increasing out troop concentrations, the Federation garrison begins to make much more heavy handed and concentrated efforts to oust Communist insurgents only to find them coming around heavily armed and obviously supported. The Federation garrison realizes its blockade of the island from other ships has been largely unsuccessful and declares that it will now wage open war on the Communists and Communist sympathizers in Cuba. This, however, doesn't result in the desired outcome as tens of thousands of Cubans protest the massive increase in military force as well as the disproportionate responses in Cuba to what is seen as just a minor insurgency.
    • Spain: We will send 10,000 of our troops to help the federation quell the insurgency. We will also allow the federation to build a base on one of the Balearic Islands if need be.
  • Turkey: We send 9000 more troops to Greece. Other stuff (sorry for late post)

1953.0

The Independent Nation of Israel begins a massive arms buildup as it sees much outright hostility from many Arabs in the general area purchasing arms from the British, United States, France, any literally anyone who will sell putting it as a top quality military in the area with training being administered by volunteer officers from multiple other countries

The Egyptian pullout is seen as a disaster by the British Government but Generals from both Britain and France and the newly formed Israel all come together in secret to begin planning an invasion to Secure the Suez Canal Zone. These Generals maintain popular support from each government. The intentions of this invasion, however, can be blatantly seen by many countries as the loss of Suez will drastically alter the naval power dynamic of Britain and France.

The First attacks against white settlers in French Algeria begin but French forces from the homeland put down these small attacks in swift but brutal action and request action from the Home government on the next course of action.

The SDP members begin to see some internal political pressure to begin selling oil abroad for their own economic benefit, but also to save these industries from total internal collapse due to lack of sales of this vital resource.

The situation in French Indo-China continues to escalate as French authorities start to lose control of Major cities in the internal areas of Indo-China including the self declared capital of Laos Luang Prabang. The French, however, hold control over Vietnam where the bulk of a force of nearly 50,000 resides ready to fight the insurrection.

Spain begins to see some large insurrections in its territories, particularly Morocco in which a unified liberation front begins to combat Spanish national forces and stage attacks on white settlers.

Olympics end in Rome a success, with the US winning the most and the USSR in second.

Please vote for 1954 FIFA World Cup (Dawn of War Map Game).

  • Republic of Egypt: Expansion of the Egyptian military, and the state infrastructure continued. The Republic directed funds towards developing the state transport system, seeking to establish a strong and swift railroad system. President Nasser anounced the imposement 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 United States, and the Federation began its funding of the Aswan Dam. Meanwhile, Egypt 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 Tourism and Textile Manufacturing Industries. In response to the British military buildup in the Middle East, and rising tensions with the British Empire, the Republic of Egypt announced its nationalization of the Suez Canal Company, freezing the assets of the Suez Canal Company and declared that the stockholders would be paid the price of their shares according to the day's closing price on the Paris Stock Exchange. The same day, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping, and blockaded the Gulf of Aqaba. The Egyptian military was put on high alert, as an aggressive response from the United Kingdom, and Israel was expected. 60,000 Egyptian soldiers, under the Sinai Regional Command were transported to Rafah, close to the border with Israel. 25,000 soldiers were spread out against the border, viciously patrolling the border. An additional 45,000 were deployed at Bir Mazar and Romani to secure Wadi El Arish, and keep the supply line to Sinai secure. 10,000 soldiers were sent to Sharm el Sheikh to defend the Red Sea city, with 24,000 members of the National Guard reinforcing this army. The Suez Canal Zone was heavily fortified, with 85,000 soldiers spread across the zone, 65,000 of these were deployed at Port Said, along with the majority of the Egyptian navy. Important cities inside the Canal Zone such as Al Qantarah and Ismaliah had 10,000 troops each. The remaining 55,000 under the Nile Delta Regional Command were positioned to protect Cairo, as well as to efficiently reinforce the Canal Zone Forces if the British were able to successfully penetrate deep into Egyptian territory.
    • Federation Diplomacy: We offer to help the Egyptians maintain control of the nationalized Canal.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: Egypt accepts the offer by the Federation, particularly alarmed by the British decision to blockade the Suez Canal.
    • US Diplomacy: We offer to sell Egypt any armaments they need for the use of defending itself from Communism.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: Egypt accepts.
    • Federation Diplomacy: We officially deploy 20,000 regular troops their accompanying armored and mechanized forces (150 tanks and 70 IFV's respectively) as well as 10,000 troops from the Elite Amphibious Shock Corps who are accompanies by another 70 tanks, 40 IFV's which take up positions along the Suez Canal. The Regular troops take up positions near Key Egyptian Cities. Air support consisting of about 100 jet fighters are sent as well
    • Turkish Diplomacy: We will aid the Federation with 5000 troops and 25 jets in maintaining control of the nationalized Canal.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: Egypt appreciates the aid by the Federation, the United States and Turkey against the imperialist designs of the United Kingdom.
    • Saudi Arabia pledges to support Saudi Arabia and provide fuel to the ships and ariplanes used by the pro-Egyptian troops.
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: Egypt accepts.
  • The United Kingdom: We remind all members of the EU of our meeting that is taking place this year. Now that the USA has taken control of operations in Greece we begin moving soldiers from there to Israel and start a naval blockade in the Suez Canal. We ask the USA to begin moving soldiers there. Kuwait is released as an independent democratic state in the Middle-East. The UK hopes to keep relations good between Kuwait by setting up trade and providing military equipment. British troops begin moving from there and into the safe neighbouring country of Kurdistan. Fearing the loss of Indochina we send equipment and nurses from Sarawak & Myanmar to the French and ask the Philippines to help aid them. The total number of nuclear weapons under the EU's control are now 54 and each nation in the alliance owns at least one. All members of the EU pledge to protect Ethiopia from Spain and other members of the SDP. We will not interfere with their government.(More to come later probably)
    • US Diplomacy: The actions of Great Britain are condemned by President Dewey, who demands that Britain and the EU should allow Egypt to maintain its own economy. Such military action should be directed towards Communism instead. Congress threatens to freeze the assets of British companies in the US if they do not withdraw from Egypt.
    • British Diplomacy: The only reason we are securing the area is because we have reason to believe that the SDP will place complete control over it an prevent us from passing through the area in the future. We also are doing it to prevent anti-Israeli Egyptians from attacking Israel. If you can get the SDP to promise to France, Israel, and myself that none of this will happen we will withdraw at once. (And we were only doing what the mod said we were so thanks for setting us up to fail ... again)
    • This is realistic. As much as it sucks to see an empire dissolve try something different or actually invade to try to secure the territory. You, France, and Israel are all supporting such a move and it might pay off as much as it might damage your finances. I am not setting you up to fail this is just a bad period to be an imperialist Britain. Wars and conflicts happen, and the UK can remain a strong power, you just have to revolutionize or revamp how you want to play with your power. As a veteran player ill give you the advice that some of these events have a historical premise behind them and would plausibly happen. The only ways i have set up issues is trying to maintain colonies, and in those cases i have actively encourages people to fight for their colonies. In general the British could try to maintain colonies but also you could just peacefully withdraw and stick to a soft power mechanic to maintain some economic authority over them. You have just proven to be angry and beligerent and chose to pick a fight with a Superpower every time rather than peacefully release colonies or set up decolonization agreements like the French did OTL. in fact, the OTL French set up agreements to the point that they still get colonial taxes from ex-colonies -Feud
    • British Diplomacy: I understand and have left a message on your talk page. Thank you for your advice.
  • Swizerland: We consider creating a proposal to create a united EU military, which we will put forward at the next Swiss EU meeting. Our scientists propose a way of fast communication and look at computers for some way to do it.
    • British Diplomacy: We support the idea of a united military and ask the Swiss to send aid to Tibet and the Middle-East.
    • A United EU Military is completely implausible. -Cookie
  • Syria: we declare independence from France and ask for all French of troops to get out as soon as possible. We tell France if they try to influence our nation we will have to drive them out with force. We begin to set up militias.
    • British Diplomacy: We will not recognise you unless the French declare you independent.
    • US Diplomacy: We support the independent Syrian government.
    • The USSR recognizes the newly formed Syrian government, and we ask that the British also recognize them.
    • Syrian diplomacy: We ask for Weaponry from the USSR and US.
    • British Diplomacy: We will only do so if France says they are independent. We would not want to cross our ally.
    • The USA will give weapons to Syria for the purpose of defending them from Communism
    • Egyptian Diplomacy: Egypt recognizes the independent state of Syria.
  • Korea:The government watches events in the Middle East with concern. The government makes it clear that they will not tolerate the Suez Canal being shut down to third party shipping and naval activity. The submarines are completed. One is moved to the south and one is moved to the east coast. Economic development continues and new high rises are built in Seoul, Pyongyang, and Kaesong for housing. The power grid is restored to the southern part of the nation. New hydroelectric dams are planned for the north to supply a steady amount of electricity to the heavy industry. Agriculture is increased in the south to provide self sufficiency in the case of war. The Korean government declares neutrality in world affairs, but remains in EATO after a strong debate.
  • British West Africa: We continue to improve military and economy while some of the naval blockades starting in Suez Canal. We think that will not tolerate the Suez Canal otherwise it will cause a big problems to our nation and possibly an argument. Some buildings are constructed and some roads in progress. As a British colony, we hope to have good relations with UK.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. Much federal funding is poured into developing long-range nuclear missiles, as well as extra-terrestrial rockets. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The blockade of the South China Sea continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi (350,000 troops) and the military pressense in Greece (110,000 troops). The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The monopoly of the SDP is circumvented by the US by buying natural resources through India, although much oil is now coming from Kurdistan and Iran. The US supports the independence movements in Algeria, Indochina, Indonesia and Sudan, hoping to establish democratic governments there. French Syria is offered support in the event they are an independent state. Support for Israel is maintained, but slowed significantly, warning them not to antagonize their Arab neighbors.
  • Yemen: We using loan money spend large amounts of it on improving educational facilities which teach people agricultural and mechanical skills. We also work on creating wells and create laws to stop sanitation from being dumped in rivers. We allow the Saudi and Fed troops to set up bases. We will now sell oil to non- SDP members on a case by case basis. If you wish to buy oil please send us a Diplomatic communication.
  • 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 begins expanding their infrastructure and plans to build more tracks to reach more places across the nation.
  • Ho Chi Minh decides that, for the good of Vietnam, the Communist forces must join forces with any nationalists who wish to free Vietnam, and forms the United Revolutionary Front of Vietnam, which has a total of 60,000 men under its command. Vo Nyguyan Giap orders a massive guerrilla offensive to drive the French out of Hanoi, with a mass bombing campaign. Working with the nationalists, who are promised a multi-party democracy when the war ends, aid in this attack.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 340,000 to 350,000 troops. Since there is increased violence, we will decide to establish a referendum for independence or autonomy in the year 1950 in Morocco. Those areas who choose to become independence of the nation of Morocco will join Morocco or another independent nation. If they choose to be with Morocco, they will chose to either become a monarchy or republic. This second referendum happened after six months after the first. We will send negotiators and troops to deal with the rebels.
    • Spanish North Africa:This governing body will control all affairs of Spanish West Africa with a representative from Spain. The body will be able to guide the affairs but if anything displeases the government, we can overrule the issue. We begin to recruit troops from our territories to create an army of 60,000 to 70,000 people. We will begin to build settlements on the coast for Spanish immigrants specifically to the cities of Dakhla and Sidi Ifni and we expect to have 15,000 people for each settlement. We will send our troops to keep the order until the referendum and spread this news to quell violence.
    • 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 30,000 to 35,000 people. We will send a Spanish Governor in the area for feedback. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain.
    • Spanish Settler Response: We Refuse to allow the Spanish government lose the territory of our empire. We do not wish to See what we see is our Birthright be auctioned off to the Berbers to rot away. There are tens of thousands of us and the entirety of Morocco can be used to strengthen Spain.
    • Spain: Taking into consideration of the Spanish settlers, the referendum will be placed for another five years and by then all majority Spanish areas will belong to Spain. If they choose independence the Moroccans will remain a dominion for another eight years and then finally released.
  • Kurdistan keeps developing its economy, now empowered by new access to the Persian Gulf. New resources are developed, such as boron salts, coal and other minerals, as well as industry. Shia Mesopotamia votes for independence as the Republic of Baghdad. With Syrian rebels having declared independence from France, Kurdistan invades to support both the Alawite, Druze and Assyrian minorities, to liberate Kurd territories, and to support its French ally's ongoing decolonization process. The Syrian rebels are portrayed as thuggish Communists to the Kurdish people and international community. Conscription is enacted and 200,000 troops are deployed. Kurdish armoured spearheads drive for the Euphrates, seeking to liberate Kurdish territories, while Assyrian forces invade south of the Euphrates, heading for Deir-ez-Zor. The Kurdish air force strikes against disorganized rebel forces, avoiding conflict with residual French troops, most of whom are in the country's west. Alawites, Druze, Assyrians and Kurds support the invasion, joining irregular militias.
    • The Assyrian Protectorate is established in the western portion of the territories bought from Britain. Ethnic Assyrians, as well as other Christians uncomfortable in Muslim-majority eastern Mesopotamia, pour into the lightly-populated area in thousands. The Assyrian Legion is established as the national army and a provisional government is set up, with the area electing delegates to the Kurdish parliament.
    • US Dip: the US condemns the actions of Kurdistan, and demands they find a more peaceful comprimise or face intervention.
    • Kurdistan is trying to protect minorities from pro-Communist, majoritarian rebels. France is actively decolonizing the territory, and Kurdistan will support its ally's efforts to decolonize on its terms. Kurdistan suggests the US evaluate its position and wonders why it wants to strengthen snit-west, pro-Communist groups.
    • Syria Dip: We ask Kurdistan why they think we are pro-Communist all we did was declare Independence. We will give Kurdistan a deal that the US endorses. We begin to send arm militas with US weaponry to Deir ez Zor and up north to battle against the Kurds introducing martyrdom. http://althistory.wikia.com/wiki/Special:NewFiles?file=Deal_1.png
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur with the creation of a national guard made up entirely of Portuguese Africans (it numbers 3,000 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, so far 20,000 Europeans have emigrated to the colony settling mostly in Southern Angola. With the allowance of self governance, the Portuguese West African assembly is founded with elections scheduled for later this year though it is likely that all of the seats will be won by national union candidates. However, the white nationalist group that published the book "candle in the dark continent" has revealed itself to a group called the Angolan National alliance has given informal backing to several independent candidates as a way of bypassing the colony's anti-party laws.
  • Romania: We continue the endeavors of the last year. We currently have 300,000 troops in Greece, aiding the Communists. We prepare for the next elections and we release writer Richard Wurmbrand and promote his work.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: This year, Vladimer Andronikov dies, and many believe he was poisoned though the KGB strongly denies it. In his place Josef Putin takes control of our nation, though because his power is contested, a council is formed. The council will include 24 non-elected members, each responable for a different region in The USSR. Although his leadership is contested, Putin continues with many of Andronikov's reforms, including a more open economy and a less brutal police force. In addition, he puts more money into The military, in order to compete on the sea with other larger naval powers. Our naval forces reached 329 boats this year, including four aircraft carriers, with three more carriers being manufactured and plans in the works for as many as 7. We introduce several more planes to our Air force, trying to make a numerically superior force. In addition, training for ground combat forces is increased, in order to have more high quality troops. We continue to Secretly send aid to Vietnam and Greece, trying to halt capitalist advances as much as possible, and keep our Communist Allies in power. We also send large amounts of aid to the People's Republic of China, in order to help them with their slow economy. End Secret With a nuclear test already condested, we begin production of these weapons, and we begin early research in long range missiles. By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and we already are working on ten to be completed by the end of the year. We begin to work on a hydrogen bomb, believing that would unleash far more destruction than uranium or platinum bombs. So far, we have made 60 nuclear weapons, 28 of which are capable of hitting the USA. We also begin to build infrastructure for this years Olympic game, and send athletes to the summer games.
    • Chill out on the carrier force. The Soviets were a land based power and carriers were not their strong suit and making them their strong suit will takes decades. You cant just convince to change funding from their top notch ground forces into a navy that was essentially designed to fight a defensive engagement while the USSR ground forces steamrolled Europe. -Feud
  • East Germany: Work continues on the autobahn project. Hoping to rebuild some of Germany's technological dominance we start to build more universities and encourage science and math studies. We also start to build a small highly trained military for self defense. East Germany requests training and advisers from the USSR. We also start to fund Communist movements in Britain's remaining colonies and the Communist revolutions in Cuba, Vietnam, and Greece.
    • the USSR also sends supports to the Communist rebels in Cuba, and also sends advisors to east Germany.
  • Republic of Malaya: Construction continues as the project nears completion. The APNAT Exercises begin. Kuala Lumpur begins to revitalize as new jobs are created and Singapura booms with fishing and trade. Sports teams begin creation as tryouts are hosted for the new nation's sports teams. Buddhist Temples and Mosques are set up in nearly every city and more highways and freeways begin construction. We create Air Malaya and begin ordering airplanes from several nations. We also ask Japan to bring their car companies to Malaya to start a new consumer market.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Kawakami Jotaro agrees, and allows Japanese motor companies to sell to the Malaya market.
  • People's Republic of China: As the PLAN begins to start the APNAT Exercises, we begin to deal with several key issues, especially economics and foreign policy. Our military decides to expand its wargames close to the DMZ, and while the PLAN is sent to the APNAT exercises, the PLAAF and the PLA are deployed into the wargames, and manufacturing is stepped up to increase our supply of goods to these branches. In secrecy we begin to place Operation: Sharp Edge, a military operation that was originally updated at the end of the war, into the early phases of execution. This means deploying reconaissance units into the other side the DMZ to investigate hostile positions and relay information back to the other side of the border. However, the situation that this puts us in is concerning both diplomatically, and militarily, and should any of our units be caught, the Operation is to continue as planned, as Mao decides to take the risk of war against the RoC.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them wholly to the war reconstruction effort. We demand more economic aid from the two countries, as we see ourselves as a main instrument into keeping Communist influence at bay in Southeast Asia. We fund massive construction projects (including a road system linking all major human settlements) on the northern island of Luzon. Several steel, petro-chemical and textiles factories are built, mainly in Manila and its surrounding regions. We continue the plan (now called the "Rural Development Movement" for rural regions, at first we improve living conditions and add more higher technology to some farms to boost agricultural output. We build small sea oil-platforms are also under construction in Western Visayas. We continue stimulating growth on all economic sectors, with some concern over the sluggish agricultural sector. Commodity trade volume rises rapidly as conflict in Indochina intensifies, but we withdraw all troops and compensate this with billions of dollars worth of manufactured supplies.
  • Federation of India: Seeing the unstable state of the world, Nehru shifts focus from social policies to building up and modernizing the military and our industry becomes dedicated to this military build up. The main focus of this build up is to ensure naval dominance in the Indian Ocean. In terms of destroyers, we currently have the INS Ranjit, the INS Rana, and the INS Rajput and construction begins on the INS Godavari, the INS Gomali, and the INS Ganga, all of which are destroyers, for 1953. We have one cruiser, the INS Delhi and one frigate, the INS Tir. Our sloops include the INS Kaveri, the INS Sutlej, the INS Jamuna, and the INS Krisna. Our corvettes include the INS Bombay, the NS Bengal, and the INS Madras. Military academies are built to train and modernize our military, and we have a military of 500,000 soldiers on active duty and 500,000 on reserves. This modernization of our military goes hand in hand with improving our infrastructure and a boom in our industry. The INS Godavari, INS Gomati, and the INS Ganga, all destroyers are deployed this year and we participate in the APNAT Exercises.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Unemployment continues to go up since people are getting jobs in factories. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund scientists for building space stuff for the future. Aaron Klein continues the production of fixing up the country even more by fixing the roads, making national parks, fixing schools, and building nuclear power plants. With all the building going on unemployment continues to go down to 1%. We bring down the drinking age to 18. The voting age is brought down to 18 also. Anyone can vote in the nation that is over 18. College is practically free for students since money is hard for them to make.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues its immense nuclear buildup putting away another 20 weapons in the past six months. The Nation itself also begins a major push towards continuing advancements in its aerial fleet. The F-17 Crusader is released as -one of the most important aircraft in the Federation arsenal capable of air-to-air and air-to-ground combat operations. The two of these operation are notably needed. The preference for air to air combat is noticeable though. The Rocketry sciences are also heavily expanded with the Federation beginning to test rockets capable of Space flight but none of these are expected to reach anything noticeable until the early 60's The Federation conducts a few more bomb tests in the Atacama deserts of differing yields beginning to build up differing Strategic and Tactical assets in the case of a nuclear conflict. The Federation continues its movement of equipment and force to Cuba in order to stem the Communist insurrection. In order to better facilitate co-operation between the US and the Federation we request to conduct War games as well as proposing two differing sports events one favoring the Federation and another Favoring the United states in order to facilitate cultural exchange. With the nationalization of the Suez Canal our forces are deployed in co-ordination with Egyptian forces with 10,000 troops from the Amphibious Shock Corps taking up positions with in depth mobile defenses constructed looking to take advantage of the Federations armored mobility doctrine. The Other 20,000 troops are deployed in Alexandria and Cairo respectively looking to defend both cities in a mobile fashion just outside the cities. The Federation also sets up accompanying Artillery positions near the Canal Zone utilizing its proximity to key cities for fire support. The Federation warns the British to back off and warns that any move on the Canal is a movement on the Federation and will be seen as an act of war. To back up our point, Carrier Group Bolivar is deployed to the Medditerrenean side of the canal through the canal to meet the British Blockade head on. The Carrier Bolivar, escort carriers Infame and Libertad, Battleships Dom Pedro and Fortaleza, seven cruisers, 20 destroyers, 15 frigates, and a small submarine force all breach the Canal zone blockade meeting the British just outside the Canal mouth. This puts the British and Federation navies almost directly head on in terms of force. The Federation also prepares Battlegroup Jeddah consisting of the Battleship Rio De Janeiro, the Escort Carrier Lusitania, three cruisers, seven destroyers, ten frigates, and three submarines just on the other side of the Canal in the Red Sea. The Federation combined total forces in the area remains one of the strongest naval concentrations in the World with nearly 600 aircraft ready, 30,000 troops in Egypt, another 20,000 in Arabia, and the ability to quickly back up and attacks with clear decisive armored support. The Federation begins the construction of two more of its new Bolivar class Supercarriers with an expected completion in 1954. These two ships are expected to phase out many of its older carriers. Designs for a Modern Battleship continue.
    • US Dip: The US agrees to this proposal.
  • Yugoslavia: We offer a deal to the Soviet Union: they give us nuclear information so we can make our own bombs for return for helping you with their nuclear program. We build our military and infrastructure. We aid Communist rebellions all round the world, especially in Greece. We build roads across the country. We expand cities by building many homes and a few sky scrapers. We remain Communist.
  • Turkey: We send our final 9000 troops to Greece, bringing the number of active Turkish troops to 27,000 fighting for the Greek Democrats.

1953.5

Generals in the US say the situation in Greece has absolutely spiraled out of control and that the US will have to intervene heavily and almost directly to prevent an outright Communist takeover.

The French become ever more beligerent as they commit a large amount of force to the Suez issue ignoring British concerns of their frozen finanacial assets. Almost 50,000 troops are moved into Syria quelling the rebellion for the time being as forces are prepared for an assault on the Suez.

French forces in Algeria getting orders from the homeland brutally hold onto control and in a show of force execute numerous insurgent leaders publicly. However, in order to win some of the populace over and prevent outright revolt, the French offer to give Veterans of the French efforts in WW2 and in its post colonial conflicts citizenship showing that Algerians can become citizens through governmental service and proving their dues.

In contrast to US arguments to evacuate colonies the French take another Brutal action and put down any and all resistance in Indo-China brutally and without any further pause to let the rebels gain momentum. The French estimates of dead push near in the 10's of thousands as French forces obliterate any resistance in Luang Prabang. The Cambodian resistance shows mass amounts of desertion from their ranks as the French forces commit to wholesale slaughter of any suspected rebels.

With the precedent set some other colonial powers see their opportunity and begin crackdowns on local populations particularly in Spanish Morocco where Spanish settlers and Spanish national forces against the wishes of the government kill nearly 200 moroccan protesters for independence and arrest an unprecedented 2000 dissenters declaring Morocco a home department of Spain.

The Cuban Communists receiving aid from abroad, particularly the Communist USSR begin the Cuban revolution with nearly 50,000 Communist forces coming out of the Jungle to fight the Federation. A good chunk of the population including some of the trained cuban military forces once loyal to the Federation join the Rebels. The active combatant population of Cuba is estimated to be nearly 500,000 armed in some way arraying themselves against the Federations 120,000 man garrison. Analysts from the US and the Federation are absolutely stunned by the turnout in force.

Egpytian forces stunned by the French movement into Syria prepare to fight an all out conflict with the French over the Suez Canal only to see an arrayed force of Israeli and French forces preparing an invasion on the Border. Nasser is dubious about a pre-emptive strike fearing it would put him in the wrong and turn international opinion against him.

Mexico will host the 1954 FIFA World Cup.

  • 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 begins expanding their infrastructure and continues plans to build more tracks to reach more places across the nation. Two racetracks begin to be planned, and later the names of the two planned tracks are revealed: the Fuji Speedway and the Suzuka Circuit.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur with the creation of a national guard made up entirely of Portuguese Africans (it numbers 3,000 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, so far 30,000 Europeans have emigrated to the colony settling mostly in Southern Angola. The results of the election show no real surprises with 27 of the 30 seats won by National Union candidates, with the last three won by Angolan National Alliance backed independents, Despite this the ANA still celebrates this election as a victory and the beginning of the road to independence.
  • ​PWA Dip: We offer a proposal to the EU states, it entails the EAU becoming a special division of the EU and its members becoming part of the eu as special members. In return the EU will help to support the African states in military and economic terms.
    • British Diplomacy: Well, France and my own colonies in Africa are already considered special members of the EU but you can only join if Portugal decides to do so.
  • British West Africa: We continue to see some troops recruited to our army and we hope to make a good relations with UK. Although some concerns about the independence in the future, it might be a discussion about the independence in the future but probably unlikely. Also to our expectations, we build some roads and rails for a good transport.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. Much federal funding is poured into developing long-range nuclear missiles, as well as extra-terrestrial rockets. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The FBI-run Office of Unamerican Activity begins revewing government employess in the hopes of uncovering any Soviet spies, while the CIA continues sending spies to Russia. The blockade of the South China Sea continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi (350,000 troops) and the military pressense in Greece (200,000 troops). The number of troops in Greece doubles as Congress finally approves to make a decisive counter-strike against the Greek Communists, while the navy in the Mediterranean continues to support Turkey. We implore the British to divert their forces from the Middle East to aid in this attack. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. A secret CIA mission known as Operation: Marlowe begins orchestrating a coup to overthrow the Shah of Afghanistan and replace him with a radical Nizari Muslim Republic. Oil and other natural resources are now coming from India, Kurdistan and Iran. The US sends small peacekeeping forces to Cambodia and Syria, not to engage in any combat, but to provide emergency supplies and aid with refugee relief. These forces are ogranized in a new cabinet office known as the Department of Foreign Aid. Meanwhile, A National Soccer League is organized to perpare American sportsmen for competing against the Hispanic Feds.
    • Dutch Dip: Get out of Greece. We warn you.
  • Republic of Egypt: Expansion of the Egyptian military, and the state infrastructure continued. The Republic directed funds towards developing the state transport system, seeking to establish a strong and swift railroad system. President Nasser anounced the imposement of a land reform, a law prohibiting the ownership of more than 200 feddans of land (840000 sq meters), limiting the rental rate for land; establishing cooperatives for farmers; minimum wages, etc. Armaments were purchased from the United States, and the Federation began its funding of the Aswan Dam. Meanwhile, Egypt 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 Tourism and Textile Manufacturing Industries. In response to the British military buildup in the Middle East, and rising tensions with the British Empire, the Republic of Egypt announced its nationalization of the Suez Canal Company, freezing the assets of the Suez Canal Company and declared that the stockholders would be paid the price of their shares according to the day's closing price on the Paris Stock Exchange. The same day, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping, and blockaded the Gulf of Aqaba. The Egyptian military was put on high alert, as an aggressive response from the United Kingdom, and Israel was expected. 60,000 Egyptian soldiers, under the Sinai Regional Command were transported to Rafah, close to the border with Israel. 25,000 soldiers were spread out against the border, viciously patrolling the border. An additional 45,000 were deployed at Bir Mazar and Romani to secure Wadi El Arish, and keep the supply line to Sinai secure. 10,000 soldiers were sent to Sharm el Sheikh to defend the Red Sea city, with 24,000 members of the National Guard reinforcing this army. The Suez Canal Zone was heavily fortified, with 85,000 soldiers spread across the zone, 65,000 of these were deployed at Port Said, along with the majority of the Egyptian navy. Important cities inside the Canal Zone such as Al Qantarah and Ismaliah had 10,000 troops each. The remaining 55,000 under the Nile Delta Regional Command were positioned to protect Cairo, as well as to efficiently reinforce the Canal Zone Forces if the French or Israelis were able to successfully penetrate deep into Egyptian territory. Having noted the military buildup by French forces near the Egyptian - Israeli border, Egyptian forces increased fortifications in Sinai, and increasively prepared entrenchments to halt any major offensive. In an attempt to gain further support from the international community, Egypt attempted to shed light towards French atrocities in Syria, Algeria and Indochina, declaring that the French would be willing to shed the blood of the innocent to safeguard their imperialist desires. President Nasser announced to his people that the imperialist powers of France, Britain and Israel sought to invade Egypt, and declared that the people of Egypt would fight back with all of their might. The Egyptian air force was directed to Sinai, and the military was put on high alert. Military analyist in Egypt recognized that the French forces had been outstretched, having to deal with Algeria, Suez, Syria, and Indochina. Hence it was naturally assumed that the French forces would be unable to significantly damage the Egyptian army, and the main conflict would be restricted to between Israeli and Egyptian forces. The Republic of Egypt announced that the Suez Canal would remain blocked for British, Israeli and French forces until they agreed to recognize total and complete Egyptian sovereignity over the Suez Canal, and over all Egyptian territory.
  • The United Kingdom: Queen Elisabeth II mourns when she learns of the chaos that is going on in the world. So, unlike her father, she wishes to effectively end British Imperialism and bring a little bit of peace back into it in an act known as the Queen's Mandate. Parliament discovers a member of the Crown's Communist Party, an underground British Communist regime, within their ranks and immediately incarcerates him. His punishment is currently unknown. Knowing that they cannot turn back now the British armies continue to surge to the Israel/Egypt border along with two pf the UK's nuclear weapons. The citizens of the United Kingdom favour this decision and support the British Parliament and monarchy. The Queen requests that other members of the EU and Kurdistan send aid to theirs, the French and the Israeli forces. The UK also reminds everyone in the EU of our meeting which is still taking place in Oslo this year.
    • British Diplomacy: We ask Kurdistan, Israel and the Philippines to joint the Eurasian Union.
  • Ah, no
  • Why did you mark this out? It is completely valid.
  • It's true that it can be valid, but never uncross something that a mod crossed out. Private message Nate and see where he is coming from if you wish, but, again, don't uncross posts that have been crossed out.
    • It is valid. The EU voted on turning into the Eurasian Union and a lot of us wanted these nations to join.
      • The European Union is tenatively in Europe, at best. Extending it to Eurasia is implausible -Nate
        • British Diplomacy: Please explain to me why it would be implausible? At the most Kurdistan and Israel should join the EU.
        • He means that you only have a small number of European nations actually in the EU, so it makes no sense to upgrade the European Union to the Eurasian Union when only a small amount of western Europe is even in the EU. Furthermore, Kurdistan and Israel will most likely not want to become associated with western powers. -Cookie
        • Okay thank you for explaining but can y'all please put a reason next time instead of just "ah, no"
    • Turkey Dip: The Turkish government finds it quite hypocritical that the British claim to be wanting to end imperialism, yet fight the Egyptians continually and insist on expading the EU as if it were a military hegemony headed by the UK.
      • British Diplomacy: The only reason we are fighting Egypt is so we can give the Suez Canal to Israel, allow everyone to travel through it, and help our allies in the Middle-East.
    • US Diplomacy: We do not hold an empty threat, and unless the British withdraw from Egypt and Syria this year we will freeze the British assets in the US.
    • Be careful when using the Monarchy to deal with foreign policy. Usually, the Queen stays out of politics and foreign affairs. - Cookie
    • British Diplomacy: I know. I was only doing it for this one instance.
  • Turkey: Our economy enters a slight downturn in late 1953, but nowhere near a recession. In other news, we send an extra 2,500 troops to help the Egyptians maintain control of their canal, and we send an extra 4500 troops to Greece to fight for the Democrats, while amping up our naval blockade. Because of the naval blockade, Adana becomes a major city for ship construction, and we announce that in 1954, we will begin air raids on major Greek Communist cities. In political news, PM Saka is becoming very wary of British militarism, especially concerning British interference in Egypt. We also reach out to Kurdistan, Israel, and Syria, petitioning the governments of those nations for a collective economic agreement and the possibility for a regional politico-economic union, for those governments who wish to be neither part of the EU or SDP, but perhaps a regional group that stresses economy, culture, diplomacy and politics over military and war. Turkey calls this prospective union the Near East Union, and begins plans for a union-wide security council, legislature and executive body. In Turkish political news, PM Saka announces that he will not run in 1955, and will support Suheyl Suheyla in his 1955 bid.
    • British Diplomacy: We think that the Near East Union is a good idea and wish to be an observer in the orginisation seeing that Turkey is an observer in the EU.
    • Kurdistan will join the Near Eastern Union.
    • Turkish Dip: We gladly accept the Kurds into the NEU, as well as British observership.
  • Saudi Arabia: We are angered by the imperialist invasion preparations of Egypt. We give our full support to Egypt. We also propose a more peaceful method for France and Britain, to construct a canal that runs from Eilat in the Gulf of Aqaba, through the Dead Sea, through the Jordan River, Through the Galilee, and to the coast at Haifa, and remind them that this canal would be the same length as the Suez Canal. While we understand that this would cost money, it would create jobs and economically boost your ally, Israel (however much we dislike Israel, we are more concerned with peace). Also, you can take a lot of the money you need for this from the soldiers who you would've payed. On a very different note, Saudi Arabia will now be selling oil to all non-Communist nations, not just SDP members. Now that we comply with the demands of NATO, the EU, and several other nations, we ask Britain and France to demilitarize in Israel and decolonize. Our monetary gains from selling oil to more countries are put into industrialization, and we also construct hospitals in Riyadh, Jeddah, Mecca, and Medinah. We have now completed construction of our international airport in Riyadh and our highway from Riyadh to Jeddah, and we're working on a railroad from Jeddah to Dammam.
    • British Diplomacy: Major decolonisation has already begun but we cannot exit Israel yet. We think you for opening up oil trade to other nations and hope that this can heal our wounded relations.
    • Saudi Arabia: Your only decolonization has been Egypt, which you are trying to annex again for your own gain, Israel, which we at this point just won't talk about, and Mesopotamia, which you sold to Kurdistan two years ago, and took a lot of negotiating to get a deal fairer to the native people, though they still refuse to make an independent Shia state in Mesopotamia. So you actually have not done anything positive in the last two years, and objectionable decolonization overall. And yet, you are moving in the wrong direction by militarizing Israel and considering invasion of Egypt. Let the people native to Egypt govern Egypt (Same with Israel. The people native there are Arab). This is decolonization, and you should begin to decolonize the Arabian peninsula as we asked you to do so many times and so many turns ago.
    • British Diplomacy: We have begun major decolonisation in the Middle-East. Kuwait, Yemen, Egypt, and Israel are all free states and you did not look oat our section because we clearly stated that the British Empire was over and created some terms for the remaining colonies to agree upon, if they would want to leave the UK. If we were to invade Egypt we would only take the Sinai Peninsula as land for Israel since they are a much more stable and safe government whom we have allowed to govern themselves so I honestly dunno what your on about.
  • Kurdistan granted independence to the Shia Republic of Baghdad last year.
  • Yemen: As tensions rise in Egypt, Yemen calls up reserves then moves to the border with Oman and starts the training of more infantry soldiers and suspends their educational and water supply construction initiatives while military reforms are made.
  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 340,000 to 350,000 troops. We will send negotiators and troops to deal with the rebels. We declare that they should do no harm to protesters and that violence is not the way. I will tell the army that the starting point for our great nationalist revolution was from Morocco.
    • Spanish North Africa: This governing body will control all affairs of Spanish West Africa with a representative from Spain. The body will be able to guide the affairs but if anything displeases the government, we can overrule the issue. We begin to recruit troops from our territories to create an army of 60,000 to 70,000 people. We will begin to build settlements on the coast for Spanish immigrants specifically to the cities of Dakhla and Sidi Ifni and we expect to have 30,000 people for each settlement. We will send our troops to keep the order until the referendum and spread this news to quell violence.
    • 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 35,000 to 40,000 people. We will send a Spanish Governor in the area for feedback. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We will give free land to all the Spanish who come here and offer subsidies to those who come here.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: This year, Vladimer Andronikov dies, and many believe he was poisoned though the KGB strongly denies it. In his place Josef Putin takes control of our nation, though because his power is contested, a council is formed. The council will include 24 non-elected members, each responable for a different region in The USSR. Although his leadership is contested, Putin continues with many of Andronikov's reforms, including a more open economy and a less brutal police force. In addition, he puts more money into The military, in order to compete on the sea with other larger naval powers. Our naval forces reached 329 boats this year, including four aircraft carriers, with three more carriers being manufactured and plans in the works for as many as 7. We introduce several more planes to our Air force, trying to make a numerically superior force. In addition, training for ground combat forces is increased, in order to have more high quality troops. We continue to Secretly send aid to Vietnam and Greece, trying to halt capitalist advances as much as possible, and keep our Communist Allies in power. We also send large amounts of aid to the People's Republic of China, in order to help them with their slow economy. End Secret With a nuclear test already condested, we begin production of these weapons, and we begin early research in long range missiles. By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and many more shorter ranged missiles. We begin to work on a hydrogen bomb, believing that would unleash far more destruction than uranium or platinum bombs. So far, we have made 80 nuclear weapons, 39 of which are capable of hitting the USA.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them wholly to the war reconstruction effort. We demand more economic aid from the two countries, as we see ourselves as a main instrument into keeping Communist influence at bay in Southeast Asia. We fund massive construction projects (including a road system linking all major human settlements) on the northern island of Luzon. Several steel, petro-chemical and textiles factories are built, mainly in Manila and its surrounding regions. We continue the plan (now called the "Rural Development Movement" for rural regions, at first we improve living conditions and add more higher technology to some farms to boost agricultural output. We build small sea oil-platforms are also under construction in Western Visayas. We continue stimulating growth on all economic sectors, with some concern over the sluggish agricultural sector. Commodity trade volume rises rapidly as conflict in Indochina intensifies, but we withdraw all troops and compensate this with billions of dollars worth of manufactured supplies.

The USSR, as a result, is asked to intervene directly, along with any other Communist nation with the resources needed. Economically, more of our mining industry is continued, along with manufacturing of weapons, and military equipment. We do this in order to obtain more equipment for our forces out in the front. With this in mind, and with the situation already deteriorating, the Chinese Civil War has effectively resumed.
    • Chinese (PRC) Diplomacy: We ask for support in the economic, political and military sense, and request that the USSR (and allies) directly intervene.
    • the USSR strongly supports the Chinese invasion of the RoC, and blockades the RoC with two aircraft carriers, six battleships, 15 cruisers, eight submarines, and 23 other smaller ships. We also send 400,000 troops, as well as heavy air and artillery support to support China's land invasion.
    • The USA supports the Republic of China and sends massive amounts of economic and logistical aid to block the invasion, encouraging the republican government to commence an invasion of the PRC.

In Vietnam, indeed, in all of Indochina, the land is in mourning, and the soil has been laid barren with blood. Ho Chi Minh vows to avenge all those who have died fighting against the French dogs, and will do all in his power to win this war for freedom. Thus, guerrilla warfare intensifies, and suicide bombings become very common. A Buddhist monk burns himself in protest of French actions.

  • Republic of Malaya: Construction continues. Two major railways are planned to be built in 1955. Communists, who are now residing in Singapura, attack the MRN Base and attack several governmental buildings. The Malay Republic Army marches into Singapura and attacks the Communist insurgents.

Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund scientists for building space stuff for the future. Aaron Klein continues the production of fixing up the country even more by fixing the roads, making national parks, fixing schools, and building nuclear power plants. With all the building going on unemployment continues to go down to 1%. We bring down the drinking age to 18. The voting age is brought down to 18 also. Anyone can vote in the nation that is over 18.

We build our military and infrastructure. We invest in sports infrastructure so Yugoslvaia could get better in Olympics and the World Cup. We Buick roads connecting the country. We build houses. We expand our cities. We remain Communist.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues its immense nuclear buildup putting away another 20 weapons in the past six months. The Nation itself also begins a major push towards continuing advancements in its aerial fleet. The F-17 Crusader is released as -one of the most important aircraft in the Federation arsenal capable of air-to-air and air-to-ground combat operations. The two of these operation are notably needed. The preference for air to air combat is noticeable though. The Rocketry sciences are also heavily expanded with the Federation beginning to test rockets capable of Space flight but none of these are expected to reach anything noticeable until the early 60's The Federation conducts a few more bomb tests in the Atacama deserts of differing yields beginning to build up differing Strategic and Tactical assets in the case of a nuclear conflict. The Federation continues its movement of equipment and force to Cuba in order to stem the Communist insurrection. In order to better facilitate co-operation between the US and the Federation we request to conduct War games as well as proposing two differing sports events one favoring the Federation and another Favoring the United states in order to facilitate cultural exchange. With the nationalization of the Suez Canal our forces are deployed in co-ordination with Egyptian forces with 10,000 troops from the Amphibious Shock Corps taking up positions with in depth mobile defenses constructed looking to take advantage of the Federations armored mobility doctrine. The Other 20,000 troops are deployed in Alexandria and Cairo respectively looking to defend both cities in a mobile fashion just outside the cities. The Federation also sets up accompanying Artillery positions near the Canal Zone utilizing its proximity to key cities for fire support. The Federation consolidates positions in Havana keeping the majority of its forces there as it begins to organize a dual pronged operation to retake the island one from havana with its 120,000 man garrison, and a 50,000 man invasion of Cuba from the Eastern side. Construction of two new supercarriers completes with the phasing out of two fleet carriers planned in favor of their replacement with the Bolivar class
  • Federation of India: The invasion of the RoC by the PRC and the potential Israeli-French invasion of Egypt puts us on high alert as we fear we may get invaded. This only furthers our massive military build up and our industry continues to be dedicated to military build up, with a focus on expanding and training the Indian Army to one million active soldiers. We begin development of a nuclear weapon. We join the Chinese Civil War on the side of the RoC, and we send 500,000 troops via the Indian-Chinese border in western China in order to avoid Communist ships as well as economic and military supplies to the RoC as well as six destroyers, one cruiser, one frigate, and three corvettes to assist the RoC against the Communist invaders. We also embargo the United Kingdom and require assistance to help the RoC.

1954.0

The Federation maintains heavy control over the Western Tip of the island and the are surrounding Havana but the plans to reinvade the island and attack from both sides keeps the Federation forces from capitulating under the extreme amount of people arrayed against it in Cuba.

The invasion of the Republic of China starts off with a stunning success with a solid amount of territory taken in the initial attacks with the lines stabilizing a bit farther south as ROC forces are able to link up with US forces. Nanjing remains within Allied Control. An estimated 85,000 casualties occured during the battle proper with the ROC losing nearly 115,000 of its 500,000 man force. Most of the populations of both Chinas begin a mobilization process.

The French and Israeli forces begin the attack on the Suez Canal intent on retaking it and expanding Israeli territory as well as re-establish friendly control to the Suez. Federation and Egyptian forces begin major defense operations.

Greece degenerates into guerrilla warfare as hit and run operations are taken on by Communists to try to push out allied forces from the area.

The US Government freezes the assets of the UK Sterling Bond holdings under under American control. The Bank of England immediately loses 60 million pounds, causing the pound sterling to devalue overnight. The Chancellor of the Exchequer warns the Queen and Prime Minister that this could risk the collapse of the British economy in a matter of weeks if action isn't taken immediately.


  • British West Africa: We continue to build some roads, also some troops recruited as well in military to make a good number of troops. Some buildings in progress and some ships also in progress. During the Suez Canal naval blockade, it seems we're far away off them so we think it's not possible to join the naval blockade.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. Much federal funding is poured into developing long-range nuclear missiles, as well as extra-terrestrial rockets. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The FBI-run Office of Unamerican Activity begins revewing government employess in the hopes of uncovering any Soviet spies, while the CIA continues sending spies to Russia. The blockade of the South China Sea and the Aegean with Turkey continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi (200,000 troops) and the military pressense in Greece (200,000 troops). We implore the nations of the EU to stop wasting their resources against their colonies. A large amount of forces, numbering up to 500,000 troups, are diverted from their stations in East Asia to support the Repulic of China against the Communists. Millions of dollars in economic aid is also sent. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. A secret CIA mission known as Operation: Marlowe begins orchestrating a coup to overthrow the Shah of Afghanistan and replace him with a radical Nizari Muslim Republic. Oil and other natural resources are now coming from India, Kurdistan and Iran. A large of amount of foreign aid is removed from Israel, who is felt to have overstepped their bounds as a Middle Eastern state. This action is greatly dispised by the Democrats, who use this to push against the Republican government in the next election. Meanwhile, the US agrees to organize both military and civilian competitions with the Federation. The military exercises will be held in the Pacific Ocean, while the sport events will alternate between US and Federation cities.
    • Syria Dip: we secretly send a letter asking for help from France and Kurdistan and in return we will help the CIA in Afghanstian.

    • Unemployment doesn't go up if more people are getting jobs. Please change this.
  • The United Kingdom: It is decided that staying in Egypt will cost the UK more than it could ever gain so we immediately leave and ask the USA to unfreeze our assets and in return we will move our troops back to Greece and anywhere else that they are needed. We state that it was the decision of the French and Israeli governments to begin an invasion. The UK tries to get its nuclear weapons back but France and Israel refuse to listen to reason and we fear they may end up using them to end the conflict. We remind our current colonies (British West Africa, British East Africa, British Myanmar, etc.) of the Queen's Mandate and ask them to check it at once. In other news the parliament member who was a member of the Crown's Communist Party escapes prison and his whereabouts are currently unknown.
    • The Crown's Communist Party: We secretly begin sending stolen military weaponry to our allies in the Middle East.

  • Romania: We secretly continue funding the Crown's Communist Party. We also support the invasion of the RoC.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: This year, Vladimer Andronikov dies, and many believe he was poisoned though the KGB strongly denies it. In his place Josef Putin takes control of our nation, though because his power is contested, a council is formed. The council will include 24 non-elected members, each responable for a different region in The USSR. Although his leadership is contested, Putin continues with many of Andronikov's reforms, including a more open economy and a less brutal police force. In addition, he puts more money into The military, in order to compete on the sea with other larger naval powers. Our naval forces reached 329 boats this year, including four aircraft carriers, with three more carriers being manufactured and plans in the works for as many as 7. We introduce several more planes to our Air force, trying to make a numerically superior force. In addition, training for ground combat forces is increased, in order to have more high quality troops.

By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and many more shorter ranged missiles. We detonate our first hydrogen bomb successfully, and make six immediately, with all of them capable of hitting the USA. So far, we have made 100 nuclear weapons, 59 of which are capable of hitting the USA.
    • FSA Secret Diplomacy: secretly requests arms from the Soviet Union to help fight the royalists in Siam.
  • Republic of Malaya: We dispatch a platoon of marines and three ships (one battlecruiser, two destroyers) into the Republic of China. The MRA overruns many Communist holdouts in Singapura and continues to fight them in a guerrilla war. Despite the fighting, construction continues as more and more buildings are set in place. We begin conducting naval exercises in very close proximity to the Dutch East Indies island of Sumatra, while conducting beach landing exercises without the permission of the Dutch government on Sumatra. A naval and marine base is set up on Victoria Island (OTL Hong Kong Island) off the coast of China. We begin conducting beach landing and naval patrol exercises in the South China Sea.
  • Hong Kong is still British -Feud
  • Kurdistan: Offers peace and support against France to Syria in return for Al Hasakah province and the northern half of Deir ez Zor province.

Syria Dip: Deal but we will give Syrian people the option of joining Kurdistan or moving back to Syria.

  • Spain: We begin to influence our neighbours in Andorra to be more closely aligned with Spain through trade agreements and alliances. We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 350,000 to 355,000 troops. We will send negotiators and troops to deal with the rebels. What has happened in Morocco.(Mod)

We will send our troops to keep the order until the referendum and spread this news to quell violence. We begin a propaganda campaign stressing to the minorities of the Jews and Tariff Berbers that staying with Spain will be smart since the Arab majority shall discriminate against you. We will also launch propaganda on the Berbers to separate from the Arabs and for Morocco to turn into a republic. We will ask the approx 680,000 Spanish to move to the coast as the Spanish government will be out property on the coast.
    • 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 40,000 to 45,000 people. We will send a Spanish Governor in the area for feedback. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We will give free land to all the Spanish who come here and offer subsidies to those who come here. We estimate around 100,000 Spanish live there.
  • Japan: Huge reconstruction and rebuilding continues throughout the nation. Japan also continues paying war reparations to all nations affected by the previous war.

  • Yemen: Seeing the immediate danger move on many reserves are demobilized and work is restarted on trying to better supply water to Yemen as well as an education program to improve agricultural production as well as setting up a basis for industry.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them wholly to the war reconstruction effort. We demand more economic aid from the two countries, as we see ourselves as integral to keeping Communist influence at bay in (at least maritime) Southeast Asia. We fund massive construction projects (including a road system linking all major human settlements) on the northern island of Luzon. Several steel, petro-chemical and textiles factories are built, mainly in Manila and its surrounding regions.

  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues development of its nuclear arsenl with nearly 120 weapons now in service and growing. The Federation continues heavy development of nearly all its industries, particularly its new specialization in shipbuilding and seronautics. The Federation's Atlas Industries begins some diversification in how it manufactures expanding it from arms and munitions, to autmotive. Atlas becomes the largest car producer in the Federation as a result. This spurs some competition with another company, Rosario Automotives which looks to outproduce Atlas in terms of quality rather than quantity. More rocket tests continues with research on ICBM and cruise missile technology continuing. The research on the development of a space capable rocket to send materials/men into space. The Invasion of the Suez by French and Israeli forces remains a bit shocking but some gruding respect is given to both these nations for their actions taken even if to just prove a point. The Federation immediately moves its 20,000 regular troops in support of the Amphibious Shock Corps moving all equipment as well to combat this new threat. The Federation in general holds the line at Suez digging in with defensive trenches on the Sinai side of the Canal deploying all 30,000 troops along the line. The Federation begins the War games with the US in the Pacific and will host the Soccer game in Bogota. The Federation continues development of new equipment with research on its new battleship design putting many of its modern practices to use on the New Battleship San Salvacion able to be upgraded well into the modern age. Its life expectancy is expected to extend for nearly 50-70 years if the ship is maintained properly. Two more Carriers of the Bolivar Supercarrier class are finished, the Santander, and Pedro Afonso, which are immediately commissions to Fanfare. The Federation begins its reinvasion of Cuba looking to split the Cuban revolutionaries on two fronts with the Havana Garrison pushing from West to East, and the Federation Marines pushing from East to West after landing near Guantanamo Bay. Operation Evening Light begins and it is heavily publicized as a potential decider in future Federation foreign policy. The development of dedicated cargo aircraft begins as well looking to prevent the usage of key bombing aircraft for simple supply carrying.

Indian troops and fleets arrive in Nanjing and reinforce and replinish Nationalist forces there. Domestically, we focus on the build up of our heavy industry in order to build military equipment.

Yugoslavia: We ask Albania if they, peacefully, want to join Yugoslavia (mod response). We continue to research in nuclear technology, hoping to develop a nuclear bomb by the mid 1970s. We aid Communist rebels all round the world, especially in Greece. We build our military and infrastructure. We invest in sports infrastructure so Yugoslavia could get better in the Olympics and the World Cup. We Build roads connecting the country. We build houses. We expand our cities. We remain Communist.

  • Albania declines

Federation Of Canada: We attempt to become a Communist country. We build more cities, and force people to have jobs, otherwise, the person who would disagree would be punished, depending on the severity. We attempt to gain some land from Greenland diplomatically (Which means buying). ((I don't know if Greenland needs a mod response or no, because I can't find it anywhere in the nations list).

You don't just "become Communist". You need to write a MUCH more detailed post on why and how Canada will transition from a capitalist democracy to a Communist regime. And you also will need to spend at least three to five turns to do this. Plus, you don't just "build" more cities. Even planned communities take some time to construct, while most cities are settled as small villages and grow gradually over the years. -Cookie
Canada can't go Communist in General. If I see any attempt to go Communist as Canada I'll kick you from that nation, Spot. Sorry, Canada doing that isn't even close to being plausible in any sense in any time especially when the Canadians are pratically about to go to war with the USSR. -Feud

We begin to start a push to Nanjing, hoping to take the city. With a nuclear test already condested, we begin production of these weapons, and we begin early research in long range missiles. By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and many more shorter ranged missiles. We detonate our first hydrogen bomb successfully, and make six immediately, with all of them capable of hitting the USA. So far, we have made 118 nuclear weapons, 69 of which are capable of hitting the USA.

  • The United Kingdom: We are happy that the Queen's Mandate has been successful and eagerly await answers from our remaining colonies. With things in Greece getting worse and worse we propose having a conference similar to the Kaesong Accords that will divide Greece between those who sympathise with the Communists and those who support the democracy. While we are on the subject of the Kaesong Accords the United Kingdom thinks that is deplorable that the PRC would begin an invasion of their neighbour and break the terms of the Kaesong Armistice which stated that all hostilities between the two Chinas would cease for twenty years. We immediately begin moving the few troops we had in Myanmar and Tibet into the PRC and begin capturing land on the border and taking POW's. We move missiles that were going to be used in the invasion of the Sinai Peninsula to Hong Kong and prepare to defend the harbour. Plans to aid the USA in their naval blockade are discussed and we too ask for the Philippines, Korea, and Japan to provide military aid. We will move our troops out of Greece and into China once the civil war there is over.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Kawakami Jotaro kindly declines; citing a shift to neutrality and that the Japan Self-Defence Forces are only meant to defend Japan itself; and are not deployable.
  • 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 begins building more tracks to reach more places across the nation. The Fuji Speedway and the Suzuka Circuit plans are finalised, and construction on them begins.
  • France: As Paris and the French state slowly rebuild after the destruction caused by World War 2, the people of the now bruised nation try to reassert their place as a proud and strong nation. As the nation rebuilds fierce political debates occur in Paris as the right and the left fight for influence in French politics. Under the strong and charismatic influence of de Gaulle the right press for maintaining the colonial empire and restoring the glory of France while the left push for talks and demilitarizing after the chaos of occupation and liberation. Despite some sympathies for the left the strong legacy of the free French forces helps de Gaulle gain larger influence across France. Part of the right's plans include reinforcing garrisons across the colonies and figuring out how to deal with the German question. Efforts to restore French industry begin. French efforts to de-industrialize the French occupied Rhine continue. However, many political thinkers in France realize that at some point Germany will be needed to help restore European prosperity. Efforts to stimulate smaller business and strategic industries are made by the government through subsidies. Paris agrees to join NATO but under reservations that D.C. will allow France to do as it sees fit within its own sphere. research into nuclear weapons continue to develop the weapon that helped win the war and to put the French on an equal footing with their American friends. France reasserts its ties with the allies and promises to help combat Communism wherever it might appear. Efforts to modernize the armed forces begin with research going into assault rifles, medium tanks, jet fighters, rocket technology, and into the construction of aircraft carriers, though a balance between reconstruction and military expansion remains in the minds of policy makers. Troops in Egypt take advantage of the initiative to try to make a push for cairo though with the colonies becoming calmer the government quietly begins looknig to negotiate to end hostilities on favorable terms for the coalition. Six armored divisions supported by 150 fighter aircraft and mobile infantry divisions make the push for Cairo. 40,000 troops are left in port said and another 20,000 are left to make the move to alexandria. The Med Sea navy group is sent to keep the federation navy at a distance and to actively support French efforts along the coastline. Paris extends an olive branch offering to end all advances if Egypt agrees to cede control of the canal to the British and French and to cede Sinai to Israel. Paris makes the same offer to the federation promising to keep troops out of Egyptian affairs if the federation pressures Egypt into agreeing and the French offer to secretly accept Egypt as a part of the federation's sphere.
    • ​Council of Paris: with the fighting in colonies dying down Paris decides it might me time to put into action the transformation of the French colonial empire into the Francophone Union. political and economic specialists are brought in to determine the best way to precede with the transformation of the empire.
    • Federation Dip: We refuse any and all negotiations over the Canal. We will hold it or die trying.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
    • French Syria and Jordania: Unlike the other colonies efforts to slowly disengage from the now volatile region begin, however, as efforts to strengthen the Alawite loyalists begin to keep a puppet regime in power and to curtail the ambitions of possible pan-Arabic groups. troops are placed near the border with Kurdistan to curtail the influence of the Middle Eastern democracy in the region. However, Paris makes it clear that it would be willing to cooperate with the Kurds if they do not go against French designs for the region.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to build up its nuclear arsenal. Research on rockets and other missile technologies continue. The Federation officially launches the A-4 blackjack, an attack aircraft with an air force variant and carrier based variant the CA-4 both to fill the attack aircraft role for the Federation and phase out its older prop driven attack aircraft. The Federation seeing the true opening of hostilities in Egypt organizes a Mobile defense against the advancing Israeli Army. However, as the attacks begin all long the Sinai The Federation using its Naval dominance of the Red sea to move its 20,000 troops from Saudi Arabia as reinforcements for its 30,000 troops in the Sinai this puts the active strength of the Federation forces in the Sinai at about 50,000 with nearly 350 tanks and other mechanized fighting vehicles in the area particularly the new IFV's of the Federation armed forces. This is added on top of the Federations nearly 600 operational aircraft in the Area with this combined armed approach it is hoped that the Israeli Army will break under the Federations mobile defensive maneuvers. The casualties from the battle of Sinai are expected to be huge and the Federation begins organizing a large reinforcement operation and within six months is expected to be able to bring another 50,000 troops to the area and if not at least to Saudi Arabia as a staging point. Aside from this the Federation populace is shocked by the lack of success of the Amphibious invasion and the casualties involved. The Federation joins this force alongside the victorious operations Cubano Libertad forces of the original Cuban Garrison. Alongside reinforcements to the original number the Federation sees the number of forces in Cuba swell to 170,000 with operation Cubano Libertad to make another push through the rest of the island and wipe out the remaining Cuban revolutionaries. As a response to the revolt, General Marcos Almagro takes drastic measures against the cuban people putting anyone with suspected revolutionary ties to the sword. The initial executions produce nearly 15,000 dead with more and more being rounded up and put into local camps. However, the process will end as soon as the revolt is scheduled to be over events of the Federation executing the revolutionaries are suppressed to prevent information of this leaking out. The Federation seeing the global situation spiraling out of Control begins considering supporting the US in the Republic of China but looks to prevent further issues for itself as it has taken multiple hits to its pretige recently particularly with the Cuban emergency. The Federation, however, does begin major construction of its new America class Battleship with an expected completion date of 1958. The Federation opts to postpone the US, Federation Wargames until further notice. Development of a new assault rifle for the military continues. With te victory in Sinai the Federation immediately conducts a well organized counter strick to envelop the Israeli army and capture it ending Israeli involvement in the War. The Federation diverts nearly 400 aircraft of all sorts to support the Egyptian defense of Cairo.
    • British Diplomacy: We implore the Federation to reconsider France's offer and remind them that the French and Israeli forces in the Middle-East are currently in possession of two of our nuclear bombs. We think it would be wiser to make peace now instead of after the bombs are dropped. But we do not think that the French and ourselves should own the Suez Canal, we believe it should be open to all nations who desire to use it and should be considered "No Man's Land".
  • British West Africa: We think we will remain as a UK colony, could be our best option to have more good relations. Meanwhile, we improve the military and economy. We build some roads and rails to our territory. We applied that we still had not confirmed the independence and we rule out that. We decide to be British Colony for at least ten years.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them wholly to the war reconstruction effort. We demand more economic aid from the two countries, as we see ourselves as integral to keeping Communist influence at bay in Southeast Asia. We fund massive construction projects (including a road system linking all major human settlements) on the northern island of Luzon. Several steel, petro-chemical and textiles factories are built, mainly in Manila and its surrounding regions. We continue the plan (now called the "Rural Development Movement" for rural regions, at first we improve living conditions and add more higher technology to some farms to boost agricultural output. We build small sea oil-platforms are also under construction in Western Visayas. We continue stimulating growth on all economic sectors, with some concern over the sluggish agricultural sector. Commodity trade volume rises rapidly as conflict in Indochina intensifies, but we withdraw all troops and compensate this with billions of dollars worth of manufactured supplies. We begin a family planning program that encourages families to have a maximum of three children.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur 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, so far 45,000 Europeans have emigrated to the colony settling mostly in Southern Angola. ​To cope with the ever increasing influx of European settlers new white majority settlements are built across the coast of Angola.
  • Republic of Malaya: Construction continues on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapura area as the Communists were defeated in Singapura and cleanup begins. We begin conducting naval exercises near Filipino Sabah and the South China Sea. The perpetrators of the Communist Uprising are tried and executed by firing squad in the Malayan Military Supreme Court in Singapura. We request trade pacts and economic alliances with other nations. The Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE) and the Singapura Stock Exchange (SSE) and start trading stocks such as Mitsubishi Malaya Ltd. and our currencies. The Bank of Singapura is established and all funds of Singapura Pound (s£) will be transferred there. In an operation during the Chinese Civil War, our troops get scared and mistakenly fire upon a RoC troops arriving at the Malayan military camp, resulting in a short firefight that leaves 12 RoC troops dead, ten wounded, and seven of our own dead and 13 more wounded.
    • Japan Diplomacy: Prime Minister Kawakami Jotaro accepts Malaya's trade pact and economic alliance.
    • British Diplomacy: We create a trade pact and economic alliance with Malaya.
  • Tibet: We ask Nepal if they could join us (mod response, maybe?) We are trying to get to 200,000 troops and 8% military spending.. Our leader died and we are trying to find a new one. It may take a year. We are starting a non-nuclear missile project to defend against China.
  • Romania: We secretly send supplies to Communist rebels in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. We send 200,000 troops to Hungary to quell the rebellion. We continue supporting the Greek Communists. We trade with the Netherlands guns, which we send to the Dutch East Indies. We propose a trade deal to Yemen, in which we give them crops and they give us oil. We also send 50,000 troops to the PRC to aid them in the Battle for Nanjing.
  • Yemen Dip: We accept the Romanian trade deal.
  • Saudi Arabia: We are increasingly mad about the situation in Egypt. We take the following actions: We move our navy into the Red Sea, where we hope to stop any French Naval movements. We also begin a full scale trade embargo on France, and consider raiding French cargo ships in the Red Sea. We also consider an invasion of the French colony of Jordan, which we would keep under our protection as a self-governing protectorate until the war is over, when we will give it independence. We recommend that Spain militarizes their border with France as a further show of force. We again ask Britain, Israel, and France to consider construction of a new canal in Egypt using natural waterways of the Gulf of Aqaba, Jordan River, Dea Sea, and See of Galillee, and state that the US would likely support this project as a peaceful solution. We ask the Federation for an increased force in the Middle East, so as protect the Suez Canal and protect us and Yemen. Should we lose, we ask that the Federation consider shutting off use of the Panama Canal for France, Israel and Britain. We increase our military size and production. Furthermore, we continue our various projects to industrialize, especially our infrastructure projects. We begin a tax on foreigners buying goods in the country, which is essentially directed at pilgrims on the Hajj, hoping to further industrialize as a result.
    • British Diplomacy: We withdrew from the battle a long time ago Saudi Arabia so there would be no reason to close off the Panama Canal to us. The only people who associate themselves with the UK who are still in Israel/Egypt are the Crown's Communist Party whom we do not endorse or support. But we do support is your idea of a new canal as it will bring peace back to the Middle-East and effectively end this war before anymore lives are lost.

We look for funding from foreign business to create a new refinery site which would be owned by the foreign business. We continue work on building wells and aim to over a number of years create a salt- water purification site.
  • Federation of India: The invasion of the RoC by the PRC and the potential Israeli-French invasion of Egypt puts us on high alert as we fear we may get invaded. This only furthers our massive military build up and our industry continues to be dedicated to military build up, with a focus on expanding and training the Indian Army to one million active soldiers. We begin development of a nuclear weapon. We join the Chinese Civil War on the side of the RoC, and we send 500,000 troops via the Indian-Chinese border in western China in order to avoid Communist ships as well as economic and military supplies to the RoC as well as six destroyers, one cruiser, one frigate, and three corvettes to assist the RoC against the Communist invaders. Indian troops and fleets arrive in Nanjing and reinforce and replinish Nationalist forces there. Domestically, we focus on the build up of our heavy industry in order to build military equipment and we implement welfare reforms. The advance on Beijing continues and we capture the province of Shangdong and advance on the province of Heibei.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to build up its nuclear arsenal. Research on rockets and other missile technologies continue. The Federation officially launches the A-4 blackjack, an attack aircraft with an air force variant and carrier based variant the CA-4 both to fill the attack aircraft role for the Federation and phase out its older prop driven attack aircraft. The Federation seeing the true opening of hostilities in Egypt organizes a mobile defense against the advancing Israeli Army. However, as the Attacks begin all long the Sinai The Federation, using its Naval dominance of the Red Sea to move its 20,000 troops from Saudi Arabia as reinforcements for its 30,000 troops in the Sinai, this puts the active strength of the Federation forces in the Sinai at about 50,000 with nearly 350 tanks and other mechanized fighting vehicles in the area particularly the new IFV's of the Federation armed forces. This is added on top of the Federations nearly 600 operational aircraft in the Area with this combined armed approach it is hoped that the Israeli Army will break under the Federations mobile defensive maneuvers. The casualties from the battle of Sinai are expected to be huge and the Federation begins organizing a large reinforcement operation and within six months is expected to be able to bring another 50,000 troops to the area and if not at least to Saudi Arabia as a staging point. Aside from this the Federation populace is shocked by the lack of success of the Amphibious invasion and the casualties involved. The Federation joins this force alongside the victorious operations Cubano Libertad forces of the original Cuban Garrison. Alongside reinforcements to the original number the Federation sees the number of forces in Cuba swell to 170,000 with operation Cubano Libertad to make another push through the rest of the island and wipe out the remaining Cuban revolutionaries. As a response to the revolt, General Marcos Almagro takes drastic measures against the cuban people putting anyone with suspected revolutionary ties to the sword. The initial executions produce nearly 15,000 dead with more and more being rounded up and put into local camps. However, the process will end as soon as the revolt is scheduled to be over events of the Federation executing the revolutionaries are suppressed to prevent information of this leaking out. The Federation seeing the global situation spiraling out of Control begins considering supporting the US in the Republic of China but looks to prevent further issues for itself as it has taken multiple hits to its pretige recently particularly with the Cuban emergency. The Federation, however, does begin major construction of its new America class Battleship with an expected completion date of 1958. The Federation opts to postpone the US, Federation Wargames until further notice. Development of a new assault rifle for the military continues. With te victory in Sinai the Federation immediately conducts a well organized counter strick to envelop the Israeli army and capture it ending Israeli involvement in the War. The Federation diverts nearly 400 aircraft of all sorts to support the Egyptian defense of Cairo.

1955.5

The Cuban Revolution mostly dies out after having no supplied leaving only a guerrilla force to be dealt with.

The Joint Indian ROC counterattack on Beijing continues with no clear gains either way. This is considered one of the largest offensives since World War II

(May I please have more detail on where each side controls?)

Please check the last turns mod events. I have a rough approximation. -Feud

I did, I could only find that the Indian-ROC have a frontline on Nanjing and that there is a massive coutner-offensive on Beijing -Kame

They have a rough frontline extending from Xinjiang towards Nanjing and to the coast around the borders of Beijing. -Feud

Israel continues to dig in around Jerusalem and Tel Aviv suffering an intense bombing campaign from Federation forces.

The French notably beat a numerically superior Egyptian force and push towards cairo with a 20,000 man detachment to take Alexandria once again.

  • Yemen: Our education system is beginning to show results in increased agricultural production. We look for funding from foreign business to create a new refinery site which would be owned by the foreign business. We continue work on building wells and aim to over a number of years create a salt- water purification site.
    • Indian Dip: We offer funding for the new Yemeni refinery site.
    • Yemen Dip: We thank you for the investment and your corporations may now organize construction.
  • British West Africa: According to us voting for Queen's Mandate, it seems that we vote for, but then it went mistake that we'll stay as British Colony. So far it isn't confirmed until all British colonies decided to vote against or for. Meanwhile, we recruit the troops once again. We think recruiting troops everday should be the best option but maybe yes or no.
  • Republic of Egypt: Expansion of the Egyptian military, and the state infrastructure continued. The Republic directed funds towards developing the state transport system, seeking to establish a strong and swift railroad system. President Nasser 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 United States, and the Federation began its funding of the Aswan Dam. Meanwhile, Egypt 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 Tourism and Textile Manufacturing Industries. The defeat at Port Said was unexpected for the Egyptian army, who had hoped that the reinforcements from Cairo would've been able to stall the French advantage. Nevertheless, Egyptian morale remained high, and thousands volunteered to be conscripted into the military, increasing recruits for the defense of Egypt. The military increased fortifications at Cairo, and directed 70,000 soldiers towards Alexandria from Cairo, with a total of 90,000 now defending Alexandria. 180,000 soldiers retreating from Port Said reinforced at Ismaliah, and were joined in by 15,000 soldiers arriving from Sharm el Sheikh. This army prepared to intercept the incoming French army, that was marching towards Cairo.
  • The aircraft committed to helping you are still under my control, and most of my transport capability is going into bringing another 50,000 troops over here. Along side that Port Said isn't undefended. The French are based out of there. I gave no force changes in terms of Port said except for the 20,000 that left for Alexandria. the remainder are cautiously advancing for the very reason of a counterattack. -Feud
  • Right... I fixed it. Btw, the French should be unable to just march towards Cairo, since that would mean losing thousands to attrition. The only possible route for the French army to Cairo is through Ismaliah. ~Rimp
  • Republic of Malaya: We begin withdrawing troops from China as major construction is finished. Kuala Lumpur international airport finishes construction and the the first airlines begin to take service there. We invite diplomats and world leaders to visit the Republic of Malaya before we officially begin tourism advertising. Numerous Universities begin accepting foreign students for free tuition, all they need to to pay for is their living expenses. Apartment complexes near Universities start at around MR$9000/month (roughly US$1000/month) and living areas farther away become cheaper by the mile. Living standards continue to improve as more and more job slots are filled. We lighten our restrictions on Malay-Chinese and Singaporean-Chinese as we seek to have good relations with other nations.
  • Saudi Arabia: We begin Operation: Saladin. This operation is an attempt to invade Jerusalem from the East, by first launching a campaign through the unguarded colony of Jordan. We hope to liberate Jordan by 1956.5 and launch an attack on Jerusalem in 1957.0. For this to work, we use propaganda to began pro-indpendence movements in Jordan, Syrian independence movement help, and a force of 20,000 soldiers, leaving just 6000 at home to guard ourselves. We also use our equipment from the Federation for the first time in war. At home, we continue our tax on foreigners, based on the Hajj. We use ost of the government income to continue our industrialization, and we see success, with Mecca, Riyadh and Jeddah growing. We begin a new education program, where all men will be able to aaccess public schooling and we will construct a national university in Riyadh. We begin to install a corporate tax on all companies not headquartered in SDP nations.
  • Yemen Dip: We send a force of 7500 soldiers to support Operation Saladin.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur 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
  • Spain: We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 365,000 to 375,000 troops. We will send negotiators and troops to deal with the rebels. We will begin what you call the Pyrenees line to protect our northern border in passes like the Maginot Line as a line of bunkers and ditches. We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards.
    • Spanish North Africa:We begin to recruit troops from our territories to create an army of 85,000 to 90,000 people. We will begin to build settlements on the coast for Spanish immigrants specifically to the cities of Dakhla and Sidi Ifni and we expect to have 70,000 people for each settlement. We will establish a colony in Nouadhibou, Tarfaya and Berkane with a start of 30,000 each per settlement. We begin more colonies in Tetouan and Ksar El Kebir of each 20,000 Spaniards. We begin establishing settlements on the coast from Sidi Fini to Nouakchott by building Spanish farms. We will spread propaganda to either balkanize or continue with Spain. We will also split voters between a republic and a monarchy. We will begin to build bases near our colonies.
    • 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 50,000 to 55,000 people. We will send a Spanish Governor in the area for feedback. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain.
  • 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.

  • PRG: President Nikos Zachariadis coordinates the large-scale offensive into southern Greece. Military support from Communist allies from around the world is appreciated. The President continues to the state the People's Republic's position as the true sovereign over all of Greece. The DSE is hoped to make tangible gains into the South after the stalemate of sort that has occurred for a bit.
  • France: As Paris and the French state slowly rebuild after the destruction caused by World War 2, the people of the now bruised nation try to reassert their place as a proud and strong nation. As the nation rebuilds fierce political debates occur in Paris as the right and the left fight for influence in French politics. Under the strong and charismatic influence of de Gaulle the right press for maintaining the colonial empire and restoring the glory of France while the left push for talks and demilitarizing after the chaos of occupation and liberation. Despite some sympathies for the left the strong legacy of the free French forces helps de Gaulle gain larger influence across France. Part of the right's plans include reinforcing garrisons across the colonies and figuring out how to deal with the German question. Efforts to restore French industry begin. French efforts to de-industrialize the French occupied Rhine continue. However, many political thinkers in France realize that at some point Germany will be needed to help restore European prosperity. Efforts to stimulate smaller business and strategic industries are made by the government through subsidies. Paris agrees to join NATO but under reservations that D.C. will allow France to do as it sees fit within its own sphere. research into nuclear weapons continue to develop the weapon that helped win the war and to put the French on an equal footing with their American friends. France reasserts its ties with the allies and promises to help combat Communism wherever it might appear. Efforts to modernize the armed forces begin with research going into assault rifles, medium tanks, jet fighters, rocket technology, and into the construction of aircraft carriers, though a balance between reconstruction and military expansion remains in the minds of policy makers. With the advance on cairo and alexandria continuing French forces are ordered to take cairo and to bring about an end to the conflict qwith favorable terms for Paris. 30,000 troops are sent to reinforce the current forces there at the present and to help in the taking of ALexandria. BOmbardments of egyptian postyions begin.
    • ​Council of Paris: with the fighting in colonies dying down Paris decides it might me time to put into action the transformation of the French colonial empire into the Francophone Union. political and economic specialists are brought in to determine the best way to precede with the transformation of the empire.
    • Federation Dip: We refuse any and all negotiations over the Canal. We will hold it or die trying.
    • 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.
    • 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.

    • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
    • French Syria and Jordania: Unlike the other colonies efforts to slowly disengage from the now volatile region begin, however, as efforts to strengthen the Alawite loyalists begin to keep a puppet regime in power and to curtail the ambitions of possible pan-Arabic groups. troops are placed near the border with Kurdistan to curtail the influence of the Middle Eastern democracy in the region. However, Paris makes it clear that it would be willing to cooperate with the Kurds if they do not go against French designs for the region. Suppression of anti-French forces begin in earnest as ALwaite death squads are giving the go ahead to completely suppress anti French forces. Favoroble terms are offerd to those who surrender and support for the kurdish minority in the north east of the region begins.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: This year, Vladimer Andronikov dies, and many believe he was poisoned though the KGB strongly denies it. In his place Josef Putin takes control of our nation, though because his power is contested, a council is formed. The council will include 24 non-elected members, each responable for a different region in The USSR. Although his leadership is contested, Putin continues with many of Andronikov's reforms, including a more open economy and a less brutal police force. In addition, he puts more money into The military, in order to compete on the sea with other larger naval powers. Our naval forces reached 329 boats this year, including four aircraft carriers,We introduce several more planes to our Air force, trying to make a numerically superior force. In addition, training for ground combat forces is increased, in order to have more high quality troops. We continue to Secretly send aid to Vietnam and Greece, trying to halt capitalist advances as much as possible, and keep our Communist Allies in power. We also send large amounts of aid to the People's Republic of China, in order to help them with their slow economy.

We begin to start a push to Nanjing, hoping to take the city. With a nuclear test already condested, we begin production of these weapons, and we begin early research in long range missiles. By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and many more shorter ranged missiles. We detonate our first hydrogen bomb successfully, and make six immediately, with all of them capable of hitting the USA. So far, we have made 139 nuclear weapons, 80 of which are capable of hitting the USA.
  • Syria: (Via chat) Syria and France has made a [http://althistory.wikia.com/wiki/Treaty_of_Aleppo_%28Dawn_of_War_Map_Game%29?venotify=created treaty. We halt our attack in Syria but we begin to move into Jordan seeing the spread of the Islamic rebellion (no offense France). We begin to ask for aid from any country,and begin to work on our cities of hope of rebuilding our cities.Due to the treaty we can't attack Israel we allow the Saudi to set up bases in Syria but no use Syria as an attack point. We would also like to open up talks with Kurdistan to improve our relationships. We begin to teach syrian about sharia but not enforce it until three years. We begin to work on making a new flag.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues to build up its nuclear arsenal. Research on rockets and other missile technologies continue. The Federation officially launches the A-4 blackjack, an attack aircraft with an air force variant and carrier based variant the CA-4 both to fill the attack aircraft role for the Federation and phase out its older prop driven attack aircraft. The Federation seeing the true opening of hostilities in Egypt organizes a mobile defense against the advancing Israeli Army. However, as the Attacks begin all long the Sinai The Federation, using its Naval dominance of the Red Sea to move its 20,000 troops from Saudi Arabia as reinforcements for its 30,000 troops in the Sinai, this puts the active strength of the Federation forces in the Sinai at about 50,000 with nearly 350 tanks and other mechanized fighting vehicles in the area particularly the new IFV's of the Federation armed forces. This is added on top of the Federations nearly 600 operational aircraft in the Area with this combined armed approach it is hoped that the Israeli Army will break under the Federations mobile defensive maneuvers. The casualties from the battle of Sinai are expected to be huge and the Federation begins organizing a large reinforcement operation and within six months is expected to be able to bring another 50,000 troops to the area and if not at least to Saudi Arabia as a staging point. Aside from this the Federation populace is shocked by the lack of success of the Amphibious invasion and the casualties involved. The Federation joins this force alongside the victorious operations Cubano Libertad forces of the original Cuban Garrison. Alongside reinforcements to the original number the Federation sees the number of forces in Cuba swell to 170,000 with operation Cubano Libertad to make another push through the rest of the island and wipe out the remaining Cuban revolutionaries. As a response to the revolt, General Marcos Almagro takes drastic measures against the cuban people putting anyone with suspected revolutionary ties to the sword. The initial executions produce nearly 15,000 dead with more and more being rounded up and put into local camps. However, the process will end as soon as the revolt is scheduled to be over events of the Federation executing the revolutionaries are suppressed to prevent information of this leaking out. The Federation seeing the global situation spiraling out of Control begins considering supporting the US in the Republic of China but looks to prevent further issues for itself as it has taken multiple hits to its pretige recently particularly with the Cuban emergency. The Federation, however, does begin major construction of its new America class Battleship with an expected completion date of 1958. The Federation opts to postpone the US, Federation Wargames until further notice. With Israel essentially knocked out of the war the Federation diverts its 50,000 troops back into egypt meeting up with its newly fielded 50,000 man force landed in southern Egypt just days prior. These troops make a fast paced advance to meet the French outside of Cairo and conduct a full scale battle and reinforce the Egyptian positions. The Federation offers to begin peace talks with France to prevent the all out battle outside of Cairo and we wait for their response.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them to our modernisation effort. We demand more economic aid from the two countries, as we see ourselves as integral to keeping Communist influence at bay.

We plan to build a space agency.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund scientists for building space stuff for the future. Aaron Klein continues the production of fixing up the country even more by fixing the roads, making national parks, fixing schools, and building nuclear power plants. With all the building going on unemployment continues to go down to 1%. We bring down the drinking age to 18. The voting age is brought down to 18 also. Anyone can vote in the nation that is over 18. College is practically free for students since money is hard for them to make.

We ask the British military, now that it is pulled out of the Arab world, to concentrate its efforts to support the Republicans in China. Economic aid is given to the new Hungarian nation to help spread democracy in the Balkans.
  • Yemen Dip: We offer an oil and natural gas deal in exchange for cash.
  • Siam: Begins to rebuild the economy. Unemployment is high but we send 300 workers to help build the six lane highway. Farmers, factory owners, fisherman, hunters, etc., are allowed to sell their goods on the world market as we begin to establish freedom of trade in Siam. The FSA surrenders completely. We ask to develop a trade alliance with Malaya.
    • Malayan Dip: We accept the trade alliance.
  • Jordan: We declare independence from France, and that the Islamic Rebellion made it to Jordan. We begin to build on industry in our country. We also join Operation: Saladin.
    • The US recognizes Jordan but condemns Operation: Saladin and demands Jordan reach a peaceful solution with Israel.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic farm aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them to our modernisation effort. We fund massive transportation construction projects (including a road system linking all major human settlements) on the northern island of Luzon. Several steel, petrochemical and textiles factories are built, mainly in Manila and its surrounding regions. We continue the plan (now called the "Rural Development Movement" for rural regions, at first we improve living conditions and add more higher technology to some farms to boost agricultural output. We build more farms in Mindanao to boost agricultural output. We continue stimulating growth on all economic sectors. Commodity trade volume rises rapidly as conflict in China intensifies, we continue military and economic aid to China. We urge the pro-democracy Chinese to flee to the Philippines. We re-assert our regional dominance in Southeast Asia.
  • Yemen: Our education system is beginning to show results in increased agricultural production. We continue work on building wells and aim to over a number of years create a salt- water purification site.
  • Federation of the Americas: Production of nuclear weapons continues with the Federation now fielding nearly 500 weapons most of which are bomber loaded. A good amount remain tactical in nature as the push for tactical nuclear warfare in Federation doctrine is heavily advocated. The Federation citizens celebrate as the Cuban Revolution ends. Word leaks of the harsh reprisals against the Cuban populace and even though many people are distraught and disgusted, many conservatives see it as entirely necessary due to the harsh nature of the Revolution in general. The Federation does a body count of the Cuban Revolution and sees nearly 22,000 Dead Federation troops, nearly 230,000 Cubans from direct combat, and another 60,000 Cubans from General Almagros reprisals. With the tentative end of current hostilities in Egypt the Federation diplomats arrive in Cairo for the Cairo Accords. The nuclear power program for the Federation begins to yield results and the first nuclear power plant opens up near San Salvaćión. practical applications into the military are considered particularly for a Carrier and a Submarine and designs for such begin to be considered. The Federation finally unveils its new assault rifle the FMI EM2 a bullpup 7.62mm round Assault rifle which is to be adopted by the Federation as its standard assault rifle. Research into other weapons continues as well particularly new sniper rifles, and anti tank weaponry. Some other weaponry such as missiles continue to be researched as well. The Federation continues research on new vehicles and aircraft as well with particular focus on a new IFV, some LAV's and a Main battle Tank to fill the intermediate role of combat. The Federations population reaches about 158 million and growing rapidly. The new Metro systems in many cities continues construction but much of the interior metro system sees completion in many of the sceduled cities with just the connecting stations needing to be constructed. The Federation Western Highway system continues construction as well with many western cities being linked up. The Light and Heavy industries continue development with a particular emphasis on Aeronautics as the Federation sees a huge increase on public flight across the country. Some major growth takes place in the Amazon states with major immigration taking place due to the vast opening due to some deforestation as well as growing interior industry. The Federation sees major growth in the suburban population. Rio De Janeiro finally bulldozes the Final Favelas in its city limits and develops the area as a major housing and hotel development projects for tourism and high class living. After a major corruption scandal involving an insane amount of political funding towards the Federations political candidates. This leads to huge anti-corruption legislation in Federation politics which leads to the nation outlawing Political Action Comittees and other huge corporate donators to campaigns. Dominic Joao officially wins re-election in the Federation solidifying the Federalistas power.
  • Vietnam continues its bloody struggle against the French, and Ho Chi Minh again demands that France grant Vietnam independence.
    • French Reactions: French forces are ordered to suppress the Communists at all costs.
  • France: As Paris and the French state slowly rebuild after the destruction caused by World War 2, the people of the now bruised nation try to reassert their place as a proud and strong nation. As the nation rebuilds fierce political debates occur in Paris as the right and the left fight for influence in French politics. Under the strong and charismatic influence of de Gaulle the right press for maintaining the colonial empire and restoring the glory of France while the left push for talks and demilitarizing after the chaos of occupation and liberation. Despite some sympathies for the left the strong legacy of the free French forces helps de Gaulle gain larger influence across France. Part of the right's plans include reinforcing garrisons across the colonies and figuring out how to deal with the German question. Efforts to restore French industry begin. French efforts to de-industrialize the French occupied Rhine continue. However, many political thinkers in France realize that at some point Germany will be needed to help restore European prosperity. Efforts ot stimulate smaller business and strategic industries are made by the government through subsidies. Paris agrees to join NATO but under reservations that D.C. will allow France to do as it sees fit within its own sphere. research into nuclear weapons continue to develop the weapon that helped win the war and to put the French on an equal footing with their American friends. France reasserts its ties with the allies and promises to help combat Communism wherever it might appear. Efforts to modernize the armed forces begin with research going into assault rifles, medium tanks, jet fighters, rocket technology, and into the construction of aircraft carriers, though a balance between reconstruction and military expansion remains in the minds of policy makers. Troops halt outside of cairo and orders are given to not engage egyptian or fed forces as negotations proceed.
    • ​Council of Paris: Specialists continue their efforts to determine the best course of action for the future of the French empire. Most of the members of the council support the decision to grant greater autonomy to the different regions of the empire and to shift to local administration ruled by French-educated elites.
    • Federation Dip: We refuse any and all negotiations over the Canal. We will hold it or die trying.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • French Indochina: increased funding is given to paramilitary organizations who conduct anti-insurgency operations against Communists in northern Indochina. olonial troops continue to violently suppress any attempted revolts.
    • Madagascar: Economic development of the colony begins.
    • French Syria and Jordania: Unlike the other colonies efforts to slowly disengage from the now volatile region begin, however, as efforts to strengthen the Alawite loyalists begin to keep a puppet regime in power and to curtail the ambitions of possible pan-Arabic groups. troops are placed near the border with Kurdistan to curtail the influence of the Middle Eastern democracy in the region. However, Paris makes it clear that it would be willing to cooperate with the Kurds if they do not go against French designs for the region. Suppression of anti-French forces begin in earnest as ALwaite death squads are giving the go ahead to completely suppress anti French forces. Favoroble terms are offerd to those who surrender and support for the kurdish minority in the north east of the region begins.
  • Federation of India: The invasion of the RoC by the PRC and the potential Israeli-French invasion of Egypt puts us on high alert as we fear we may get invaded. This only furthers our massive military build up and our industry continues to be dedicated to military build up, with a focus on expanding and training the Indian Army to one million active soldiers. We begin development of a nuclear weapon. We join the Chinese Civil War on the side of the RoC, and we send 500,000 troops via the Indian-Chinese border in western China in order to avoid Communist ships as well as economic and military supplies to the RoC as well as six destroyers, one cruiser, one frigate, and three corvettes to assist the RoC against the Communist invaders. Indian troops and fleets arrive in Nanjing and reinforce and replenish Nationalist forces there. Domestically, we focus on the build up of our heavy industry in order to build military equipment and we implement welfare reforms. We continue the major offensive on Beijing, which so far is a stalemate, and we send 850,000 troops, 400 tanks, 50 aircraft, and one battleship and an attendent fleet to the Seige of Beijing.
  • Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: This year, Vladimer Andronikov dies, and many believe he was poisoned though the KGB strongly denies it. In his place Josef Putin takes control of our nation, though because his power is contested, a council is formed. The council will include 24 non-elected members, each responable for a different region in The USSR. Although his leadership is contested, Putin continues with many of Andronikov's reforms, including a more open economy and a less brutal police force. In addition, he puts more money into The military, in order to compete on the sea with other larger naval powers. Our naval forces reached 329 boats this year, including four aircraft carriers,We introduce several more planes to our Air force, trying to make a numerically superior force. In addition, training for ground combat forces is increased, in order to have more high quality troops. We continue to Secretly send aid to Vietnam and Greece, trying to halt capitalist advances as much as possible, and keep our Communist Allies in power. We also send large amounts of aid to the People's Republic of China, in order to help them with their slow economy. End Secret We continue to send Military aid to the PRC, with a total of 850,000 active Soviet troops in the region, as well as 950 aircraft, and 3000 tanks, plus many support vehicles. We begin to start a push to Nanjing, hoping to take the city. With a nuclear test already condested, we begin production of these weapons, and we begin early research in long range missiles. By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and many more shorter ranged missiles. We detonate our first hydrogen bomb successfully, and make six immediately, with all of them capable of hitting the USA. So far, we have made 230 nuclear weapons, 126 of which are capable of hitting the USA.

1956.5

The Negotiations between France, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the Federation continue with debate over acceptable terms still stalling the final peace process.

Ahmad Al-Shukeiri leader of independent Palestine movement, seeing the Peace offer for the Suez Crisis on the Table puts his support behind the idea to much issue with many of his more hardline supporters. He cites that in this way, that minus the lack of independence the Palestinian people can afford to build themselves a respectable and profitable life abroad without having to suffer further atrocities and destruction of their people.

Cambodian and Laotian independence movements continue to push for independence waging further guerrilla warfare against the French forces in the Area.

The Algerian Liberation Force is formed and begins to wage guerrilla war against France. However, with some granting of citizenship to Veterans the Algerian people begin to see service to the French state as a gateway to becoming a decorated French citizen. Many Algierians remain estranged from this though beleiving in either full citizenship or independence either. This goes against much of the French governments wishes who want to gradually assimilate/settle Algeria.

The Beijing Offensive is successful but bloody and Brutal with nearly 300,000 PRC and 145,000 Soviet casualties. the ROC and India fighting an uphill battle towards the Beijing Center Take 300,000 Casualties (ROC) and another 250,000 casualties on the Indian side. These forces immediately see reinforcements pushed to their positions on either side. Beijing remains contested as Soviet and PRC forces hold the outer edges of the city but have not been pushed out of it entirely.

Soviet and PRC forces make a concentrated effort to make an offensive on Nanjing after months of planning with nearly 500,000 Soviets troops and 800,000 PRC troops meeting the Bulk of the US military of 500,000 troops and another 600,000 ROC troops.

The British officially leave the remaining of their Arabian peninsular colonies leaving friendly governments in Oman, Abu Dhabi and its other territories. Oman agrees to allow British naval Bases for the next ten years with renewal every ten years.

Rhodesia begins to see more influx of Whites as profitable business is set up. The Settlement allows their closer ties to the British and they begin talks of falling off as a British colony but remaining a British Protectorate or within their sphere of influence.

South Africa begins to see some minor violence against the White minority but programs to promote the expansion of the white population as well as some immigration puts the Whites on a better footing who put down the minor revolt with ease. The population of South Africa is listed as 14,546,123 with Whites expanding much more dramatically with their population numbering nearly 2.9 million

  • British West Africa: Expansion of military began, also we invest economy. We recruit more troops in our nation and some more roads and rails have been built for a good transport to the bordering nations. However, the populations grows more even and the navy still build some ships.
  • Korea: We declare neutrality and move our military to the border. The military continues to expand. The submarines are activated. The military considers securing islands off the coast to fortify our defenses.
  • Republic of Malaya: We continue construction of smaller Metropolitan Areas and the Kuala Lumpur-Bangkok Highway. We open our borders to Thai, Cambodian, Laotian, and other SE Asian countries.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. Much federal funding is poured into developing long-range nuclear missiles, as well as extra-terrestrial rockets. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The FBI-run Office of Unamerican Activity begins revewing government employees in the hopes of uncovering any Soviet spies, while the CIA continues sending spies to Russia. The blockade of the South China Sea and the Aegean with Turkey continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi and the military pressense in Greece. We continue coordinating the militaries of EATO into two main fronts: one to push the Communists out of Beijing, the other to cross the Korean border and invade Manchuria directly. Both of these forces have about 200,000 foot soldiers and 5000 tanks. Tactical air strikes against these cities try to prevent the Communists from using the industries there. The US Navy deploys two Comando Carriers, three destroyers and an aircraft carrier to secure the harbor of Shanghai, intending to releive pressure on the city and allow the forces there to divert to Beijing via the Yangtze River. In Beijing, smaller vessels are deployed in the Kunming lake near the Marco Polo bridge to ensure safe travel in and out of the city. An additional military operation is prepared to invade Inner Mongolia. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. A secret CIA mission known as Operation: Marlowe begins orchestrating a coup to overthrow the Shah of Afghanistan and replace him with a radical Nizari Muslim Republic. Oil and other natural resources are now coming from India, Kurdistan and Iran. We ask the British military, now that it is pulled out of the Arab world, to concentrate its efforts to support the Republicans in China. Economic aid is given to the new Hungarian nation to help spread democracy in the Balkans.
  • Israel: The State of Israel accepts the peace offer of the Federation. Politically, the disastrous war has caused the government to fall. A new government is elected with David Israeli Surname as the new Israeli president. Trade is offered to the neighbouring nations as well as France and Turkey. Israel would like to use this trade as a way to show the neighbouring nations that it seeks no harm and that it seeks peaceful relations with all of them. The military and economy are expanded. Tensions between the citizens of the state reduce exponentially after it is announced Israel has accepted the peace. Preparations are made for the immigration of the Muslims who seek to leave.
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund scientists for building space stuff for the future. Aaron Klein continues the production of fixing up the country even more by fixing the roads, making national parks, fixing schools, and building nuclear power plants. With all the building going on unemployment continues to go down to 1%. We bring down the drinking age to 18. The voting age is brought down to 18 also. Anyone can vote in the nation that is over 18. College is practically free for students since money is hard for them to make.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
  • Spain: We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin establishing colonies in Spanish Africa to allow our population to expand. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 380,000 to 385,000 troops. We will begin what you call the Pyrenees line to protect our northern border in passes like the Maginot Line as a line of bunkers and ditches. We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. We will begin arming men in Yunnan and Guangdong to fight the Communist threat in Vietnam.
    • Spanish North Africa:We begin to recruit troops from our territories to create an army of 90,000 to 95,000 people. We will begin to build settlements on the coast for Spanish immigrants specifically to the cities of Dakhla and Sidi Ifni and we expect to have 90,000 people for each settlement. We will establish a colony in Nouadhibou, Tarfaya and Berkane with a start of 45,000 each per settlement. We begin more colonies in Tetouan and Ksar El Kebir of each 30,000 Spaniards. We begin establishing settlements on the coast from Sidi Fini to Nouakchott by building Spanish farms. We will spread propaganda to either balkanize or continue with Spain. We will also split voters between a republic and a monarchy. We will begin to build bases near our colonies.
    • 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 60,000 to 65,000 people. We will send a Spanish Governor in the area for feedback. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur 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. With the nation election fast approaching recent events split the population, with The National Union favouring isolation to Southern Africa politics and the Angolan National Alliance support a United effort to maintain minority rule, it is yet unclear as to how much these new policies will effect the results.
  • Yemen: We continue with the modernisation of our country through various projects.
  • 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. Elections for the next Prime Minister take place, with results coming in later this year.
  • East Germany: We start to improve the economy and improve our small army. The Communist government, still fearful of an uprising, has the Statsi continue to arrest dissidents and puts them on show trials or sends them to labor camps.
  • People's Republic of China: As the PLA is pushed out of much of Beijing, we decide to use the offensive as an example of how our brave men fought to the last breath to defend the most historically important city in China, and a cry goes out amongst the PLA saying: "Remember Beijing!" Meanwhile, Mao himself decides to commence plans to take Nanjing once and for all in an attempt to surround India and corner them in Beijing. The plan is codenamed: Operation: Fireball. The intent is to cooperate with the USSR and help take Nanjing in a brutal siege in order to force the RoC forces defending the city into surrender. However, a Plan B is taken into account, which would mean launching a frontal offensive, but the result would be costly, despite being faster than a siege. However, should they fail to surrender, this Plan B will be executed effective immediately. However, should Operation: Fireball succeed, it would give China enough of a political clout to help take more territory and help save our men in Beijing. Mao officially approves the plan and in October 14, 1956, the plan is executed, and our men begin laying siege to the city, rather than launching costly offensives. However, in Beijing, our men are ordered to make a final stand against Indian military forces until Operation: Fireball can succeed. We suggest to the USSR that they help in this plan. In the economic sense, with the new population gains, and with various sympathizers, many of them are recommended to be added into PLA ranks in order to bolster our men, and these are immediately sent to the front lines. We may be winning the war (for now), but it cannot let its guard down, and thus Mao vows to bring an end to the RoC once and for all. Meanwhile, following the recent push by the Imperialists across the border into Manchuria, we begin to deploy 400,000 troops to strike the States from behind in Manchuria and prevent them from reaching Beijing.
  • Philippines: We continue using the economic aid from the United States, and reparations from Japan, devoting them to our modernisation effort. We try to promote the growth of our country’s economy by investing millions of dollars in our textile, steel, and petrochemical industries, which are beginning to grow rapidly. We fund a massive construction project linking all major human settlements on all islands. Support for the current government surges. Farms are built in Mindanao to feed more people, improving our already large agricultural base. We see our commodity trade volume rise as we open more trade relations with other countries. We add more open immigration policies, and promote multiculturalism. High fertility, low urbanisation and recently opened immigration causes population to grow rapidly. We place little importance on our military, since we’re already protected by America.
  • Federation of India: The invasion of the RoC by the PRC and the potential Israeli-French invasion of Egypt puts us on high alert as we fear we may get invaded. This only furthers our massive military build up and our industry continues to be dedicated to military build up, with a focus on expanding and training the Indian Army to one million active soldiers. We begin development of a nuclear weapon. We join the Chinese Civil War on the side of the RoC, and we send 500,000 troops via the Indian-Chinese border in western China in order to avoid Communist ships as well as economic and military supplies to the RoC as well as six destroyers, one cruiser, one frigate, and three corvettes to assist the RoC against the Communist invaders. Indian troops and fleets arrive in Nanjing and reinforce and replinish Nationalist forces there. Domestically, we focus on the build up of our heavy industry in order to build military equipment and we implement welfare reforms. We continue the major offensive on Beijing, which so far is a stalemate, and we send 850,000 troops, 400 tanks, 50 aircraft, and one battleship and an attendent fleet to the Seige of Beijing. The Seige of Beijing, while very costly, is an Indian-RoC victory. There is, however, a small remnant PRC-Soviet force at the edge of Beijing, and we continue the offensive to clear that force out and achieve total control of Beijing.
  • Federation of the Americas: The Federation continues development of its nuclear power program and maintains its heavy and expanding nuclear arsenal now numbering nearly 650 weapons. This unprecedented expansion has led to many of these weapons being tactical warheads. a series of multiple tactical warhead tests in the Atacama desert leads to their practical use in warfare outside of the city destroying bombs that most nations would employ in a nuclear war. The Federation continues its development of its war making capabilities and has now phased out the STG 44 as a standard issue rifle replacing it with the EM-2 Assault rifle. due to lessons learned in the Suez Crisis the Federation begins development of a Field deployed Light Machine Gun as well as an Armored Personnel carrier in order to add a bit more firepower and infantry mobility to the Federation ground forces. In a secret unveiling the Federation unveils the FMI UH-1 a transport helicopter capable of transporting troops mounting some weapons such as chain guns/miniguns, rockets. Its maximum carrying capacity is put at 15 and its major tests are concluded and put down in a Military demonstration near Quito in Ecuador. The Federation seeing the Suez Crisis ending in sight pulls many from its troops from the area relocating nearly 50,000 of the units (with military rotation) to its bases in Saudi Arabia. The remaining 50,000 troops are transferred back to the Federation. The Federation, however, announces quickly that with the Resolution of the Suez Crisis it will begin its involvement in the Chinese civil war and immediately combined its battlegroups in the Medditerrenean and Red sea. This fleet is renamed Battlegroup Colombia and maintains nearly 30 destroyers, nine cruisers, 15 frigates, the Supercarrier Bolivar, the escort carriers Infame, Lusitania, and Libertad as well as the Battleships Rio de Janeiro, Dom Pedro, and Fortaleza. The movement of nearly 30 attack submarines is catalogued as well. This is considered one of the biggest concentrations of power projection in the World in a singular location and this force is sent to the mouth of Black sea. The Federation also makes a concentration movement to expand its troops numbers in the area and begins a massive buildup of forces in its Izmir Turkish base building temporary barracks to house an influx of nearly 150,000 Federation troops with an expected increase to nearly 500,000 in the next six months. The Federation also begins major movements of equipment as well with nearly 4000 tanks and other vehicles being moved into Turkey This also leads in to nearly 1000 aircraft being moved as well including a series of large scale strategic bombers. The Federation also secretly moves nearly 40 tactical nuclear weapons and ten strategic weapons into the area as well but leaves them in Saudi Arabia to avoid announcing its trump card. The Federation announces that this issue of the Chinese civil war will once again plunge the world into unadulterated Chaos and the Federation announces a major troops buildup in Cuba consisting of nearly 300,000 troops unsure if the Republic of China is just the first step in a new wave of American hegemony. The Federation also prepares a new battlegroup of nearly 40 destroyers, 20 frigates, ten cruisers, the supercarriers Dom Afonso and Santander as well as the Fleet carriers Códoba and Valquíria. The Battleships Salvadore and Natal are deployed as well accompanied by 15 attack submarines. The Federation seeing the need for possible faster helicopters begins the construction of two different kinds of Attack Helicopters.

In order to put the USA in a dificult position, we move 60,000 troops into Alaska, quickly taking Anchorage, and establishing a strong defensive line. These forces are also secretly equipped with several nuclear capable bombers and weapons.


1957.0

The Suez Crisis ends with the French expected to agree to the Federation proposal sans their colonial holdings


The French in Algeria continue to settle with more notable numbers of French settlers taking over coastal areas.


The Chinese civil war sees stalemate across all fronts except for the PRC's operation Fireball which succeeds in taking Beijing and inflicting heavy casualties on allied forces. However a US offensive into Manchuria breaks a hastily assembled PRC army which is essentially destroyed. The US then opens a clear retreat corridor for the allied forces saving the army which immediately established Deep defensive fortifications in the taken areas of Manchuria using the consolidation of the USSR and PRC armies to do this. The US forces dub this the Liberty Line and constantly barrages of artillery and aircraft strikes allow the US to establish air dominance in the area (US will gain heavy air support and all enemy forces will be stuck to medium and low aircraft limits due to the presence of the US navy and its carriers.)


The British under pressure from the United States and not wishing to lose any more prestige as a Great Power openly declare their support for the United States and Republic of China and begin shipping troops to Asia with nearly 200,000 troops arriving In China backed up by the British commonwealth. Canada ships nearly 150,000 and Australia another 100,000 putting the Commonwealth forces under British supreme command at 450,000 which immediately begins to reinforce the Nanjing Perimeter backing up nearly 400,000 ROC Troops. The French are approached as well to help fight in the Chinese civil war which has taken a turn against the Allies as of recently.


Many Warsaw Pact and NATO nations declare that no fighting should take place in Europe but Soviet generals begin pushing for many PACT troops to shift to asia using the Soviet infrastructure and transport to devote troops to the Chinese Civil war.

We also send large amounts of aid to the People's Republic of China, in order to help them with their slow economy. End Secret We continue to send Military aid to the PRC, with a total of 850,000 active Soviet troops in the region, as well as 950 aircraft, and 3000 tanks, plus many support vehicles. We begin to start a push to Nanjing, hoping to take the city. With a nuclear test already condested, we begin production of these weapons, and we have almost completed research for long range missiles, with tests expected within the year. range missiles. By 1960, we expect to have 250 nuclear weapons capable of hitting the USA, and many more shorter ranged missiles. We detonate our first hydrogen bomb successfully, and make six immediately, with all of them capable of hitting the USA. So far, we have made 230 nuclear weapons, 126 of which are capable of hitting the USA. With 75,000 troops and 50 nuclear weapons stationed in Alaska, we move several ships, including an aircraft carrier to the area, and combined with a strong defensive line around Anchorage, it would be very costly for the USA retake the area.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur 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. Following the recent election, The National Union maintains its majority but is reduced down to 23 seat, with the other seven won by Angolan National Alliance backed independents.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. Much federal funding is poured into developing long-range nuclear missiles, as well as extra-terrestrial rockets. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese.

The blockade of the South China Sea and the Aegean with Turkey continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi and the military presense in Greece. With the successful invasion of Manchuria, all US troops formerly in Beijing are redeployed to aid in the invasion, working towards the long-term strategy of taking Shenyang first, then working north to Harbin. This is known as Operation: Hannibal. The US navy in the Yellow Sea are added with five destroyers, continuing to occupy the port of Shanghai, where the new troops from Europe are sent south to save Nanjing.' The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. A secret CIA mission known as Operation: Marlowe begins orchestrating a coup to overthrow the Shah of Afghanistan and replace him with a radical Nizari Muslim Republic. Oil and other natural resources are now coming from India, Kurdistan and Iran. Economic aid is given to the new Hungarian nation to help spread democracy in the Balkans. Lockheed Martin invents the Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). By the end of the year, 1500 nuclear missiles are placed in military bases around the US, with an additional 700 missiles kept in submarines. We offer to construct US nuclear bases in Canada, West Germany, and Syria if they desire. In response to the Soviet invasion of US soil, Congress declares war on the Soviet Union, and launches a submarine-based nuclear warhead from the Bering Sea against Kamchatka Krai, with a missile sent over the Arctic against Alaty, Kazakhstan. 200,000 US troops are deployed to Alaska to drive the Soviets out, allong with three submarines, and five destroyers.

    • The USA attempts to send prototype anti-missile missiles to protect the US cities.
  • Israel: The State of Israel accepts the peace offer of the Federation. Politically, the disastrous war has caused the government to fall. A new government is elected with David Israeli Surname as the new Israeli president. Trade is offered to the neighbouring nations as well as France and Turkey. Israel would like to use this trade as a way to show the neighbouring nations that it seeks no harm and that it seeks peaceful relations with all of them. The immigration of Muslims starts this year. An official alliance is requested with the United States of America, France and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
  • Republic of Malaya: We declare unconditional neutrality to the Third World War. We continue construction of our areas and other places. Immigrants are welcome into Malaya.
  • Yemen: We finish construction on our salt water purification plant for the capital and we now create a tractor and plastic company with their own facilities. Due to a rise in pan-Arab nationalism with the end of the Suez Canal crisis we start a propaganda campaign against Egypt. We will stay neutral in this developing war. We request more Federation troops to be stationed in Yemen to counter Communist and Arab nationalists.
  • Second Méxican Empire: Maximilian III along with the rest of the nation continues to recover from the Second World War. The Nuremberg trials shock the nation, learning of the atrocities of Nazi leaders and of such. Maximilian III says in a speech short afterword "What the Nazi high command has done to the Jewish population is ... Unspeakable." After these trials, México, still uneasy with the United States, looks to repair its relations with the US and the USSR. A diplomat is sent to the United States to improve the current diplomatic situation with them. Nuclear technology is continued to be worked on non-stop to create a weapon to protect the nation from foreign powers The situation between the USSR and US is frowned upon, but with a majority of the people taking a pro-Soviet stance on the situation. México tests its first successful nuclear weapon, and starts creating more to defend itself, especially looking at the current situation with the United States and the Soviet Union. Meanwhile, the Méxican heir to the throne, Marco, continues to prove he is illegitimate. Some people want his younger sister to claim the title, while others preach for a democratically elected president. México asks SDP members to look at the current US and Soviet situation to decide a stance on the issue. [Mil/Eco]
  • Spain: We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 385,000 to 395,000 troops. The Pyrenees line to protect our northern border as a line of bunkers and ditches is now completed. We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. On the French border we will place 98,750 troops and 356,250 troops on Portuguese border.
    • Spanish North Africa:We begin to recruit troops from our territories to create an army of 95,000 to 105,000 people. We will begin to build settlements on the coast for Spanish immigrants specifically to the cities of Dakhla and Sidi Ifni and we expect to have 100,000 people for each settlement. We will establish a colony in Nouadhibou, Tarfaya and Berkane with a start of 55,000 each per settlement. We begin more colonies in Tetouan and Ksar El Kebir of each 40,000 Spaniards. We begin establishing settlements on the coast from Sidi Fini to Nouakchott by building Spanish farms. We will spread propaganda to either balkanize or continue with Spain. We will also split voters between a republic and a monarchy. We will begin to build bases near our colonies. We send 40,000 troops to Spain.
    • 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 65,000 to 70,000 people. We will send a Spanish Governor in the area for feedback. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We send 20,000 troops to Spain.
  • France: Paris agrees to the terms of the suez conference and begins withdrawing from egypt. The troops are relocated to the Levant and to France but they are not disbanded as war has brocken out between France's allies and the Soviet bloc. Elections are held this year and to everyone's surprise after years of collecting support from the armed forces and the middle class de Gaulle runs for office, winning with a 60 % majority. taking a hard stance de Gaulle promises to commit the French military to the allied cause against western aggression. military expansion continues. development of new tanks and jets continue. Nuclear weapons production continues. The French send troops to the West German border with East Germany and to Indochina to support the Nationalist Chinese forces. 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 (along the lines of the OTL famas.)

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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,
  • Netherlands: We continue to build up our military by building military bases. Major cities continue to rebuild themselves back to normal to like they were before the war. Farm lands are guarded closely by military troops. Factories continuing to higher people because cities need steel to rebuild itself. We continue to leave open our borders to Jewish people that need a country to live in. Soup kitchens are common in each city and are filled with many people. Food stamps are given out to people that are poor. Used clothing are given out to people that need them. Apartments are made cheap so less fortunate people can live in them. Unemployment is rising little by little. Our scientists continue to work on new nuclear weapons for defense purposes. We continue to fund scientists for building space stuff for the future. Aaron Klein continues the production of fixing up the country even more by fixing the roads, making national parks, fixing schools, and building nuclear power plants. With all the building going on unemployment continues to go down to 1%. We bring down the drinking age to 18. The voting age is brought down to 18 also. Anyone can vote in the nation that is over 18. College is practically free for students since money is hard for them to make. We declare war on Portugal. We send troops to Timor, Cabinda, as well as Angola. We send 400,000 troops to attack Portugal in Africa and 100,000 troops to Timor.
    • Dutch Indonesia: We continue to farm the land and bring back crops to the motherland.
    • Dutch Congo: We continue to mine out the coal and diamonds in the caves.
    • Okay, who wants to have Scar booted?
    • Numbers too high, doubt you could even manage 30,000 in Africa through colonial militias, and you would have no way to land new troops.
  • East Germany: With the outbreak of WW3 conscription is introduced and defenses are built along the border with West Germany and occupied Berlin. Following the purges and the introduction of conscription the Communist Party's support from the people begins to fall. We continue to improve the economy. Finally we send some limited support to our allies in Asia and call on the EU to act as a mediator between the Communist and democratic sides before the war escalates further.

Prime Minister Kawakami Jotaro declares absolute neutrality in the Third World War.
  • Vietnam declares that, should France wish to come to the table for peace, then Ho Chi Minh is willing to allow a non-Communist government to take power.
  • Philippines: We also try to establish diplomatic and economic ties with several Communist countries, and reconsider our hostile relationship with the world’s third superpower, the Soviet Union. We demand the complete withdrawal of American troops and add compulsory military service for all able-bodied men between the ages of 18 and 20. We declare neutrality in the current war, withdrawing all Philippine troops stationed abroad. We still continue to use economic aid from America, devoting them to our modernisation effort. We invest millions of dollars in our textile, steel and petrochemical industries, and create large business conglomerates. 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 establish much more open immigration policies, causing population growth to stop declining despite declining fertility rates, an urbanising and educated population.
  • British West Africa: So far, the construction looks very set indeed to have more population to the cities. Some recruiting armies in military rise up the stake. Meanwhile, the navy builds some battleships for naval forces. We invest more economy to our nation. Some concerns about of WW3 outbreak, it could likely change the colonies to have more power.
  • No way you can build battleships. You lack the industrial capacity -Feud
  • Federation of the Americas: With the use of nuclear weapons the Federation public and government are all shocked. This limited nuclear exchange has killed hundreds of thousands of people and the use of a weapon in China could potentially end up killing millions. The Federation in response to this, unveils the Ares 1 ICBM and in a mass process puts nearly 500 strategic weapons onto these missiles. This also ends up with the Federation mounting tactical nuclear weapons on its new FMI TCM-2 "Tempest" cruise missiles which allow for ships and aircraft carrying these missiles to carry out precision tactical strikes with nuclear weapons. The Federation also unveils two new major innovations in naval engineering, nuclear powered submarines, and nuclear powered carriers with the Ballistic Missile Submarine Beowulf being launched and the nuclear powered supercarrier Saõ Paulo. The Saõ Paulo is expected to be able to hold 120 aircraft normally but scheduled design changes in aircraft put this number to drop to about 70 in the future. The Federation continues building military equipment heavily increasing all numbers of equipment by vast amounts preparing for the Third World War to involve the Federation and her Allies. The Federation also Fields the M-22 APC and its M-45 LMG expanding mechanized and infantry capabilities. The Development of the Federation's attack helicopters continue with prototypes finished and under testing with expected fielding in the early 60's. The Nation shows clear signs of heavy industrial expansion with all of its light and heay industries showing more and more improvement. The resource exploitation all over South America continues. Multiple Federation universities begin to be listed as some of the most attractive in the world rivaling some of the Ivy League schools in the US. The Federation continues to build a major supply route to Turkey to allow for this network to support an invasion of the USSR. The Federation continues building of its new modern battleship taking away one of the gun turrets in favor of a large cruise missile battery with nuclear capabilities.
  • Romania: We secretly send supplies to Communist rebels in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. We continue supporting the Greek Communists and the Crown's Communist Party. We stop trading with the Netherlands guns. We remain neutral in the Soviet-American conflict. We also suggest a major attack against Athens to the PRG.

1957.5

The Limited Nuclear exchange between the USSR and the United States destroys Kamchatka Krai, Alaty, Portland and Nome with the Anchorage weapon being turned down at the last second by Soviet commanders.

The real threat of WW3 occurring prompts many Warsaw Pact and NATO states to begin preparing for war as West Germany is hastily reunited from its occupation zones and its forces are reunited.

The Chinese Civil War reaches a few months of armistice to recollect after the nuclear fallout and minor exchange and mass casualties cause issues.

The Communist Civil War in Greece begins to reach further stalemate as the Communist rebels refuse to back down.

Announcement: No further use of Strategic Nuclear weapons will be allowed for the time being. Most nations with a nuclear doctrine wouldnt be throwing those around unless they saw a huge wave of those missiles incoming. On top of this a realistic doctrine would be limited nuclear war if anything using tactical weapons. This actually exists OTL and Strategic warfare is usually reserved as an absolute endgame. -Feud

Much military is withdrawn from both of these fronts, seeing as the Viet Cong are severely weakened and the Greek Communists are incapable of taking the south. Both of these fronts are reduced to 50,000 men. While recovering from the nuclear fallout in China, the US military stationed there fans out to aid the civilian Chinese affected by the blast. Some fortifications are also made to secure the major cities taken in Manchuria. The US is willing to end the civil war by offeirng to give the PRC Beijing and surrounding countriside, as well as northern Xijiang.

Financial aid still goes to Syria, Egypt, and Israel. After repelling the Russians from Alaska, the US naval forces cross over and secure the northern Far Eastern district near the Bearing Strait, backed up by an aircraft carrier and two battleships, as the military there had been crippled by the nuclear attack. The troops used to take back Alaska are convoyed to secure the region itself. Many Americans mourn for the lives lost in Nome and Portland, with many seeing this as proof of the Russians as worse monsters than the Fascists of World War II.

WITh the United states of america having invaded our homeland, wes end our five ICBMs to detonate in Los Angles, San Diego, Seattle, Denver, and Washington DC, and more strikes being considered.
  • I outlawed any further use of Strategic strikes. Strategic weapons are for endgame considerations not cause you lose one measly city. The USSR wouldn't realistically obliterate 15 million people. The War is conventional and only when you come close to being absolutely wiped out will Strategic nukes be allowed. This applies to anyone with strategic weapons. Outside of thise Tactical weapons are okay (and within realistic Soviet doctrine and modern Russian doctrine)
  • France: Paris is shocked by the nuclear exchange and the unprovoked Soviet assault on the USA. De Gaulle decides that the time for peace has passed and refusing to wait until the Soviets turn their eyes towards Europe authorizes the declaration of war on the Soviet Empire and its allies launching Operation Napoleon's Revenge two million French soldiers move from Western Germany across the border into East German territory with the intention of starting the liberation of Eastern Europe from Soviet oppression. Divided into 15 armored divisions for a total of 3000 tanks supported by the newly released Mirage III jet fighter and jet bombers to soften up warsaw pact targets. In an attempt at a pinser movement the French forces split up into three main battle groups to seize Berlin, and Dresden. De Gaulle and the French government flee Paris to avoid dying should the Soviets launch a nuclear weapon against France, moving to an undisclosed location in the alps. The French government calls on the EU to step up and aid the French in the liberation of Eastern Europe. Nuclear weapons production continues. Troops from Indochina are sent to support the Nationalist Chinese forces. 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. 70,000 troops from Indochina connect with the Nationalist Chinese with the intention of helping liberate Northern China from the grips of the Communist oppressers. Nukes are placed on alert ready to launch at any moment should the Soviets use nuclear weapons against the French state. Scientific research continues but plans to continue the French space program are put on hold as the war starts. De Gaulle requests the USA supply troops to help with the campaign at least 400,000 troops. Meanwhile, the 200,000 troops stationed in the Middle East are readied to march on the Caucasian Mountains, the French request permission from syria to march their troops through now Syrian territory, and call on French allies Israel and Kurdistan to aid in the Caucasian offensive. The Med Sea navy moves in to cut off the Soviet exit from the Black Sea. despite reservations the French government calls on the German people of West Germany to help liberate their eastern brothers and expel the Soviets from Eastern Europe.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • The US sends 400,000 troops to help France, recalled from various fronts.
    • The State of Israel sends 30.000 troops to aid France in the war
  • Italy: The king wakes up from his coma to find that the world has entered nuclear war. Excellent wake-up call. Seeing the possibility of destruction unrivaled by either world war, the king declares a state of emergency. Playing off the fears of the masses, he also grants himself unlimited emergency power. (Side effects may include the desire to wear a toga, put a postage stamp under your nose, and/or wear a bicorne hat.) Construction begins on a series of bunkers throughout Italy, designed to withstand nuclear weapons, and to hold at least four million people in the event of total nuclear war. On top of this, Italy begins construction of a number of nuclear missiles, with ten planned for completion by 1958 and 40 by 1960. Recruitment begins, with troop numbers projected to reach 3.5 million by 1960. For now, a force of 500,000 (including 500 tanks, 40 fighter and 40 bomber aircraft) land in and invade Albania.
  • 3.5 million is waaaaayyy to much. You are fresh out of WW2 yourself and are recently unoccupied. id say between 500,000 to 800,000 is a solid peacetime force, with 1.1-1.5 million - a realistic size for a World War. Maybe more when it gets desperate -Feud
  • Syria: Shocked by the nuclear exchange we begin to prepare our nation for war recruiting our army to 80,000 with goals of reaching one million. We begin to rebuild the cites that were affected by our war but begin to make public bomb shelters and training of nuclear war for civil and troops setting up a civil defense. We allow French troops to pass through Syria. We secretly begin to help the CIA in Afghanistan. We begin to set up war time factors mostly making Russian weaponry. We secretly allow the US to set up nukes with hopes of defend ourselves from other nuclear power.
  • Jordan: The general public of Jordan is shocked by the nuclear trade of the USSR. The city of Amman has started rising tension between the incident. Preparing for anything, we begin working on our military tech and our recruitment. So far the military all-around has reached 78,500 soldiers in total. In fear of protests, the king has declared that Jordan will not attack any country unless necessary. We also are working on a parliament for Jordan, to make sure things don't go out of hand.
  • Yemen: The king declares a state or emergency after the tactical nuclear strikes. They change to a period of militarisation and the training and arming of new forces. Our military force goes from 20,000 to 25,000. Anyone willing to sell me tanks?
    • Federation Dip: We will sell you tanks. Medium and Heavy Tanks are open for purchase.
    • Yemen Dip: We would like to purchase 300 medium tanks and repay over a period of five years.
  • 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 world’s third superpower, the Soviet Union. After a long arguement, we will still allow a certain number of American troops in Philippine soil in exchange for a guarantee that we will not be bombed by nuclear weapons. We declare neutrality in the current war, withdrawing all Philippine troops stationed abroad. 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. 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, GDP per capita is recorded at around $1,466.7 (I hope Feud thinks this is plausible, and this figure is current dollars, not 2000 Int'l $), higher than neighboring countries but considerably lower than Japan. GDP growth is recorded at a slower but still high 3%. We establish much more open immigration policies, causing population growth to balance the effects of economic modernisation in the long-term. We request French economic aid and promise we will not support an independent Indochina.
  • Israel: The State of Israel accepts the peace offer of the Federation. Politically, the disastrous war has caused the government to fall. A new government is elected with David Israeli Surname as the new Israeli president. Trade is offered to the neighbouring nations as well as France and Turkey. Israel would like to use this trade as a way to show the neighbouring nations that it seeks no harm and that it seeks peaceful relations with all of them. The immigration of Muslims starts this year. The population stands at around 2.500.000. 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. An official alliance is requested with the United States of America, the Republic of Kurdistan and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland(respond you shits).
  • Federation of the Americas: With the usage of nuclear weapons the Federation public and government are all shocked this limited nuclear exchange has killed hundreds of thousands of people and the use of a weapon in China could potentially end up killing millions. The Federation in response to this, unveils the Ares 1 ICBM and in a mass process puts nearly 1000 strategic weapons onto these missiles as its nuclear stockpile soars to nearly 2000. This also ends up with the Federation mounting tactical nuclear weapons on its new FMI TCM-2 "Tempest" cruise missiles which allow for ships and aircraft carrying these missiles to carry out precision tactical strikes with nuclear weapons. The Federation also unveils two new major innovations in naval engineering, nuclear powered submarines, and nuclear powered carriers with the Ballistic Missile Submarine Beowulf being launched and the nuclear powered supercarrier Saõ Paulo. The Saõ Paulo is expected to be able to hold 120 aircraft normally but scheduled design changes in aircraft put this number to drop to about 70 in the future. The Federation continues building military equipment heavily increasing all numbers of equipment by vast amounts preparing for the Third World War to involve the Federation and her Allies. The Federation also Fields the M-22 APC and its M-45 LMG expanding mechanized and infantry capabilities. The development of the Federation's attack helicopters continue with prototypes finished and under testing with expected fielding in the early 60's. The nation shows clear signs of heavy industrial expansion with all of its light and heay industries showing more and more improvement. The resource exploitation all over South America continues. Multiple Federation universities begin to be listed as some of the most attractive in the world rivaling some of the Ivy League schools in the US. The Federation continues to build a major supply route to Turkey to allow for this network to support an invasion of the USSR. The Federation continues building of its new modern battleship taking away one of the gun turrets in favor of a large cruise missile battery with nuclear capabilities. The Federation demands the USSR and US come to the negotiating table to prevent further destruction and we make our massie military buildup known to both with our willingness to force peace through force if need be. This war will cause more casualties than people it will save
  • Republic of Egypt: Expansion of the Egyptian military, and the state infrastructure continued. The Republic directed funds towards developing the state transport system, seeking to establish a strong and swift railroad system. President Nasser 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. The Aswan Dam was finally completed, having been construction mainly using funds by the Federation of Americas. Meanwhile, armaments continued to be supplied by the United States. Meanwhile, Egypt 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 Tourism and Textile Manufacturing Industries. Foregoing on the terms of the Cairo Accords, President Nasser had the International Organization for Administration of the Suez Canal (IOASC) evacuate from the Suez Canal, and Egyptian troops jubilantly entered into the Suez Canal Zone, declaring that the Canal would forever be Egyptian. However, President Nasser also made an announcement that the Suez Canal would be open to all nations, including France and Israel, so long as they paid proper tariffs.
  • Yugoslavia: We aid the Soviets in World War III. However, we would like the war to end soon. We build our technology and infrastructure.

Budapest AccordsThis is the negotiation page for the Budapest Peace conference.

With a Peace offer on the table to avoid World War III entirely USSR and US Diplomats host a peace conference in Budapest Hungary. However fighting continues for either side to gain advantageous positions during the negotiations.

French and British forces storm through the Fulda Gap joined by a Hastily Re-Armed West Germany. Joined by US troops they surprise the East German Forces only to be stopped cold outside of Berlin with the full strength of the Warsaw Pact at the head. Nearly 2.4 million troops versus nearly 1.8 from the Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, and potentially more forces from the remaining pact members in the balkans. West Germany openly begins to buy large amounts of equipment as well as ramp up its own war industry again.

it is 2.4 million between the American and French forces actually i don't know how many troops the brits are using. With Blood and Iron (talk) 20:02, October 22, 2015 (UTC)

The Communist forces in Greece now backed by Sovier Special forces make a huge push taking most of Greece out of Allied hands only leaving pockets of US forces in their bulk.

The Chinese battlefield outside of some moderate fights across all fronts are stabilized as the Budpest Peace Accords begin.

Popular support for ending the war in many SDP members shows a major push for peace through the Budapest Accords

The Portuguese push the Dutch out of their colonies obliterating the army sent to take Angola. The Portuguese navy also takes drastic steps to sink and destroy dutch ships. However, many on both sides look to peace as a greater world war looks to erupt.

Changed event to reflect user concerns. The wording was meant to portray there is a popular pro war movement, not to force people into war. It would be no different if i gave the US a huge anti-war movement smack dab in the middle of WW3 just Sayin. Also for clarification. Strategic Nukes are not retconned or disallowed, they are just restricted until an Endgame situation that would allow their use comes into effect. Strategic weapons are just that... Strategic. They are not meant to start a nuclear holocaust over a small city of 50,000. Hence their restriction. Also on top of this up until the 1960's the USSR lacked the capability to outright end cities in the US like this they had vastly inferior missile technology available for something like this hence resorting to bigger bombs. The USSR was at a disadvantage until its raw ICBM numbers caught up in the 70's (these things take forever to build up and prepare). up until the 70's the US and the USSR could cause huge damage to each other but were unable to completely wipe each other out. in Fact the US could win a nuclear war in the 60's if it came to it (even at great cost to itself). So unless the nuclear powers in this game change how they will operate strategic weapons in a more realistic sense, i will not be unlocking them except for an endgame scenario. -Feud

British West Africa: We improve the infrastructure and recruit more troops in the military. We hope WW-III doesn't start as WWII that we had. We build more buildings, then fortresses and bunkers built as well.

  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism of many transport sectors of the colony. Modernisation of the colonial militias also occur 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. Following the successful defence of the Congo over 15,000 pows have been captured, along with their equipment which has been absorbed into our current military stockpile.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. Much federal funding is poured into developing long-range nuclear missiles, as well as extra-terrestrial rockets. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific Island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The FBI-run Office of Unamerican Activity begins revewing government employees in the hopes of uncovering any Soviet spies, while the CIA continues sending spies to Russia. The blockade of the South China Sea and the Aegean with Turkey continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi and the military presence in Greece. In Greece, the military bases there rearm and reinforce the DMZ to prevent the Communists from establishing presence on the Aegean. Any Communists below the border are arrested and brought to democratic Greek authorities. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. A secret CIA mission known as Operation: Marlowe begins orchestrating a coup to overthrow the Shah of Afghanistan and replace him with a radical Nizari Muslim Republic. Oil and other natural resources are now coming from India, Kurdistan and Iran. Economic aid is given to the new Hungarian nation to help spread democracy in the Balkans. Financial aid still goes to Syria, Egypt, and Israel. The military presence in Manchuria remains, fortifying their position, as the Budapest Conference proceeds. Similarly, the occupation of Far Eastern Russia maintains a few heavily-secured bases. Much military in China is sent back home, but also redeployed to secure the position in Siberia. Many Americans mourn for the lives lost in Nome and Portland, with many seeing this as proof of the Russians as worse monsters than the Fascists of World War II. Military and logistical support is given to France as they push to take Berlin.
  • Italy: Recruitment continues, but numbers had come nowhere close to initial projections. In spite of this, large-scale naval construction begins, with hopes to finish one carrier and five battleships by 1962. Forces in Albania continue their invasion, hoping to take the country down quickly. Bunker construction continues, with construction of the bunkers originally proposed predicted to reach completion by 1962. Another series of bunkers are proposed for completion by 1965. Construction begins on military production facilities, and the construction of nuclear missiles continues.
  • People's Republic of China: With the West distracted elsewhere, we begin to send a force North to retake Manchuria, taking advantage of Western withdrawal into Siberia. Thus the fight begins to retake our homeland, while our forces decide to make a push farther south, and at the same time, farther North. We decide to immediately use scorched Earth tactics should our forces be unable to make any gains and instead suffer losses. The government as a result moves into exile in Moscow due to the fall of Yan'an, and Mao vows to reunite China once and for all, deciding to stay out of the peace talks in Budapest. The result is that the PLA begins a slow, gradual fight to the death.
  • Israel: The State of Israel accepts the peace offer of the Federation. Politically, the disastrous war has caused the government to fall. A new government is elected with David Israeli Surname as the new Israeli president. Trade is offered to the neighbouring nations as well as France and Turkey. Israel would like to use this trade as a way to show the neighbouring nations that it seeks no harm and that it seeks peaceful relations with all of them. The immigration of Muslims starts this year. The population stands at around 2.5 million. Research regarding nuclear weapons starts, 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. An official alliance is requested with the United States of America, the Republic of Kurdistan and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (respond, you shits).
    • ​The State of Israel offers to fund the Republic of China in their current conflict. It sends diplomats out to the state to inform them of this. If they are interested, they should name the amount they want to loan and the object(s) which will be listed as collateral. The money will have to be returned within five years.
    • Kurdistan accepts and asks that Israel aid in the current war against the Soviet Union.
    • The State points out that it already aided the French by sending troops.
  • East Germany: Pact forces continue to resist the Allied invasion. Militia units are raised and are immediately deployed to the front line. Meanwhile, support for the Communist regime continues to fall with scattered reports of desertion and sabotage.
  • France: Paris is shocked by the nuclear exchange and the unprovoked Soviet assault on the USA. French troops continue to push into East Germany aiming for berlin, Divided into 15 armored divisions for a total of 3000 tanks supported by the newly released Mirage III jet fighter and jet bombers to soften up Warsaw Pact targets. The Air force begins an intense bombing campaign of the East Germany and ahead across the Polish border to damage the pact war effort. The two million French troops continue to coordinate with their British and American allies. In an attempt at a pinser movement the French forces split up into three main battle groups to seize Berlin, and Dresden. De Gaulle and the French government flee Paris to avoid dying should the Soviets launch a nuclear weapon against France, moving to an undisclosed location in the alps. The French government calls on the EU to step up and aid the French in the liberation of Eastern Europe. Nuclear weapons production continues. Troops from Indochina are sent to support the Nationalist Chinese forces. 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. 70,000 troops from indochina connect with the Nationalist Chinese with the intention of helping liberate Northern China from the grips of the Communist oppressers. Nukes are placed on alert ready to launch at any moment should the Soviets use nuclear weapons against the French state. Scientific research continues but plans to continue the French space program are put on hold as the war starts. De Gaulle requests the USA supply troops to help with the campaign at least 400,000 troops. Meanwhile, the 200,000 troops stationed in the Middle East are readied to march on the Caucasian Mountains, the French request permission from syria to march their troops through now Syrian territory, and call on French allies Israel and Kurdistan to aid in the Caucasian offensive. The Med Sea navy moves in to cut off the Soviet exit from the Black Sea.despite reservations the French government calls on the German people of West Germany to help liberate their eastern brothers and expel the Soviets from Eastern Europe. In a very public speech on the radio de Gaulle gives a political speech praising the courage and valour of the French forces and tells the people of france this is their time to shine and that the French nation is once more the great power it once was leading the charge for democracy and freedom against the soviet tyrants.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • French Dip: France offers israel their close ally a place as a partner to the Union Francaise and offers to extend full protection to the Jewish state.
    • The State of Israel accepts this offer and also proposes that the Free State of the Levant be absorbed into Israel. This process will start in 1965 and end (at least expected to end) in 1975.
    • Syria Dip: We ask France to decline Israel request for the Free state of the Levant as that would cause insurgences and more wars.
  • Spain: We begin mass propaganda campaigns to quell and control the populace of Spain to more closely align to Fascism. We begin to star research in civilian and mostly the military sector. We will begin to build weaponry at a slow pace since we are at peace and increase our military from 405,000 to 410,000 troops. We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. On the French border we will place 98,750 troops and 371,250 troops on Portuguese border. There is a referendum for the Morocco and Western Sahara.(MOD)
    • Spanish North Africa: We begin to recruit troops from our territories to create an army of 70,000 to 75,000 people. Dakhla and Sidi Ifni have 110,000 people for each settlement. Nouadhibou, Tarfaya and Berkane have 65,000 each per settlement. Tetouan and Ksar El Kebir have 50,000 Spaniards. We have smaller settlements on the coast from Sidi Fini to Nouakchott by building Spanish farms. There is a referendum to decide what happens in Morocco.
    • 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 55,000 to 60,000 people. We will send a Spanish Governor in the area for feedback. We will begin to build ports to more easily send resources back to Spain. We send 25,000 to Portuguese West Africa to support them.
  • 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.
  • Federation of India: The constant state of war leads to massive boost of war industries, particularly the aerospace and arms industries, and they are becoming the main industrial employers in India. Nehru remains the first Prime Minister of India, and with the collapse of the PRC capital we launch a counterinvasion of Beijing of 500,000 troops to retake the city of Beijing.
  • Yemen: We continue the expansion of our military and modernisation of our forces. Our army goes from 25,000 to 30,000. We continue to be concerned about WWIII but at higher levels the government is happy to allow it to continue.
  • 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 world’s third superpower, the Soviet Union. After a long arguement, we will still allow a certain number of American troops in Philippine soil in exchange for a guarantee that we will not be bombed by nuclear weapons. We declare neutrality in the current war, withdrawing all Philippine troops stationed abroad. 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. 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, GDP per capita is recorded at around $1482.5, higher than neighbouring countries but considerably lower than Japan. GDP growth is recorded at a slower but still fairly high 2.8%. We establish much more open immigration policies, causing population growth to balance the effects of economic modernisation in the long-term.

  • Yugoslavia continues to aid the Soviet Union in WW-3. We continue to work on our nuclear program, hoping to be finished in the late 70s. We continue to work on the Space Program, hoping to send the first Yugoslvaian man into space sometime in the 70s. We send men to fight the democratic forces in the Greek Civil War, hoping that this will defeat them. We coy tiniest to invest in science and technology. We build our infrastructure. We expand our cities by building houses. We build a few skyscrapers. We invest in our schools. We also build motorways to connect the country. We ask Albania whether they want to be annexed into Yugoslavia. (Mod response)
  • Canada: We start to build a military base, with the knowledge of WW-III. We spend 2% of our GBP for military supplies and the second 5% of our GBP for weapons. We, diplomatically would like to buy some of USA's Alaska's land, offering four billion. We lower people's paychecks by 4%, hoping to increase Canada's economy a bit. We invest in schools and colleges. We also invest in medicine, hoping to find a cure for rabies. We start to concern about rabies also, negotiating about rat extermination.

The Budapest Accords continue with a standing peace offer on the table. The accords are still open to negotiation

A further stalemate continues in Germany with Warsaw Pact forces gaining reinforcements in the area as further mobilization of the PACT countries matches the NATO deployment in East Germany with more Soviet troops on the way (I need yall to do the algos.. i can check them but if you're going to conduct offensives I'm not going to sit here and do all your algos)

The United Kingdom suffers a large anti-war protest but continues to mobilize as it prepares to aid the NATO offensives in Eastern Europe.

French territories in Central Africa (Chad) begin a major revolt with many African leaders in the area refusing outright to take place in another World War they will gain nothing from.

The PRC forces taking orders from their government in exile begin preparations for their final counterattack on the Allies in China. The titanic undertaking causes great harm to the civilians in the PRC but with Mao still running whats left of the country and Communist sympathizers still running around the PRC has managed to field nearly 3.2 million total troops for Operation: Rising Dragon

The Republic of China begins its own mobilization as well finally getting to its feet after years of brutal conflict in Central and northern China. The Republic of China manages to bring nearly 2.3 million men to bear on top of its nearly 700,000 in easily accesable forces. The ROC forces in Manchuria numbering nearly 550,000 and supported by the 350,000 remaining Indian troops there also prepare for a massive counterattack.

I am assuming the final battle will take place in Beijing, correct?

The USSR sees many patriotic young men mobilizing to fight in this war with forces heading either direction. This Full mobilization brings in nearly 500,000 more troops from training with potential for another few million on the way in just a few months time.

The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans. After completely withdrawing from Europe, the only American military outposts remain in the Pacific Island territories and the Caribbean. Surplus of soldiers enlisted in the war are mostly retained. The Mexican border remains fortified on the alert for illegal immigration and any other possible incursion. Segregation continues in most states, and the predominant Anglo-Saxon population of America sees discrimination against Africans and Japanese. The FBI-run Office of Unamerican Activity begins revewing government employees in the hopes of uncovering any Soviet spies, while the CIA continues sending spies to Russia. The blockade of the South China Sea and the Aegean with Turkey continues, as does the occupation of Hanoi and the military presence in Greece. The CIA continues secretly supplying anti-Soviet groups in Central Asian nations of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. A secret CIA mission known as Operation: Marlowe begins orchestrating a coup to overthrow the Shah of Afghanistan and replace him with a radical Nizari Muslim Republic. Oil and other natural resources are now coming from India, Kurdistan and Iran. Economic aid is given to the new Hungarian nation to help spread democracy in the Balkans. Financial aid still goes to Syria, Egypt, and Israel. After securing control over Manchuria, the remaining 400,000 troops press south to join the Indian counter-offensive against the remaining Communist forces around Beijing. They are concentrated through Liaoning with the Gobi desert to one side and the Yangtze River controled by naval vessals on the other. Many Americans mourn for the lives lost in Nome and Portland, with many seeing this as proof of the Russians as worse monsters than the Fascists of World War II. Military and logistical support is given to France as they push to take Berlin, although the US continues to approve of the current Budapest Accords, and begins to remove its military from Siberia.
  • British West Africa: We employ our soldiers and build more buildings. We invest the economy to grow up more influence to the colony. Due to the WW-III we support the British. The naval ships are now built. According to the population, it grows still.
  • Canada: We continue to invest in schools and medicine, still putting an effort to find a cure for rabies. The negotiation for country rat extermination is still taking place. We still attempt to buy some of USA's Alaska's land offering $4 billion. We organized an event for preventing rabies, which involved the 13th prime minister of Canada, John Diefenbaker in Ottawa. This would help people prevent rabid animal bites which have rabies. (This would also make deaths from rabies decrease by 5 to 10%.
    • The US declines the offer, but is willing to devote the same amout of resouces in a joint program to erradicate rabis and similar pests from North America
  • Republic of Egypt: Expansion of the Egyptian military and the state infrastructure continued. The Republic directed funds towards developing the state transport system, seeking to establish a strong and swift railroad system. President Nasser 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. The Aswan Dam was finally completed, having been construction mainly using funds by the Federation of Americas. Meanwhile, armaments continued to be supplied by the United States. Meanwhile, Egypt 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 on the Tourism and Textile Manufacturing Industries. Egypt began to fund independence movements in French Africa and supplied armaments to resistance groups. Along the same time, tariffs on French ships passing through the Suez Canal were tripled, to pressurize the French government in giving independence to Tunisia and Libya. On 19th November, 1958, President Nasser announced the creation of the Arab League , an international organization established for the promotion of the Arab Cause. Egypt invites Lebanon, Transjordan, Oman, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia to the League. (Mod Response for NPCs)
  • 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.
  • Portuguese West Africa: Infrastructure is expanded and improved, with modernism 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. Following the successful defence of the Congo over 15,000 POW's have been captured, along with their equipment which has been absorbed into our current military stockpile.
  • Italy: Most of Albania, including Tirana, have now been occupied by the advancing Italian army. The socialist government is removed and replaced with a provisional military government until the country is stabilized and repaired, at which point the country will transition to a democracy and protectorate of Italy proper. Production of naval vessels continues with construction going as expected, with the first of the battleships seeing completion. Recruitment continues to yield low numbers (compared to those expected), with a total of 250,000 troops recruited since the start of recruitment. Construction of military production facilities continues, with two new large factories completed in Rome and one each in Naples and Florence. These factories are put to good use, as production of aircraft, particularly those in the (hitherto unused because of strategic resource shortages in the Fascist countries that helped develop it) Ca.331 line begins in force. Bunker construction and nuclear production also continue, with the country now possessing three nuclear missiles.
    • Albania: Repairs of structures destroyed during the fighting undergo repair, and the construction of new infrastructure, housing and industry begin. Production for Italian forces in the region begins in small amounts. Forces in Albania begin constructing fortifications on the borders of Soviet sattellites.
    • Battleships take years to construct. -Feud
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. On the French border we will place 98,750 troops and 371,250 troops on Portuguese border. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. All non-Spaniards have the chance to move back to Morocco if they wish by next year.
    • Spanish North Africa: There is a referendum to decide has decided that the entire of Western Sahara to Sidi Ifni, Rif including Tangier since both have a high Spanish population and propaganda for the Rif to remain. Berbers have created their own state of the Berber republic and Morocco becomes a kingdom but many of the educated people in the cities begin showcasing dissent. Morocco will welcome its king to rule while the Berbers shall elect a leader and we will withdraw from their territories taking 40,000 troops to protect the colonies. Mauritania is still under our control.
    • 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 60,000 people. We will send a Spanish governor in the area for feedback. 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 15,000 Spaniards.
  • Yugoslavia is SHOCKED about Italy's invasion of Albania and calls them to stop otherwise they'll be sorry. We call all of our allies to do something about this. Therefore, we condemn Italy's invasion of Albania and sends 400,000 men to defend Albania. We hope that this will drive Italy out of Albania. We also decide to block the way where Italy could aid their invasion, we hope that they give up soon. We cut all diplomatic ties with Italy. We build our military. We aid Communist revolutions worldwide, especially in Greece. We continue to work on our nuclear program, hoping for the completion in the late 70s. We invest in science. we expand our cities by building houses. We build a few skyscrapers. We aid the Soviet Union in World War III. We build our infrastructure and our military. we build motorways to connect Yugoslavia. We build our navy and our army. We invest in our schools. We invest in medicine.
  • 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 world’s third superpower, the Soviet Union. We declare neutrality in the current war, withdrawing all Philippine troops stationed abroad. 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. 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 establish much more open immigration policies, causing population growth to balance the effects of economic modernisation in the long-term.
  • Israel: The State of Israel accepts the peace offer of the Federation. Politically, the disastrous war has caused the government to fall. A new government is elected with David Israeli Surname as the new Israeli president. Trade is offered to the neighbouring nations as well as France and Turkey. Israel would like to use this trade as a way to show the neighbouring nations that it seeks no harm and that it seeks peaceful relations with all of them. The immigration of Muslims starts this year. 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. 400.000 Jewish immigrants have been recorded, putting the population at around 2.9 million people. An official alliance is requested with the United States of America, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (respond, you shits). With France and Israel having agreed upon the Free State of the Levant being absorbed into Israel (starting in 1965 and ending around 1975), Israel begins making preparations for this.
  • ​The US remains allied with Israel, but requests that it slow down nuclear production for fear of exposing nuclear secrets to the Middle Eastern nations.
  • The State of Israel informs the US that it does not intend to share the nuclear secrets to anyone but Israel's allies.
  • Yes, but the risk of unintentional leaks due to espionage is almost too great, which is how the Russians stole nuclear secrets from us.
  • Yemen: We continue to expand our armed forces from 25,000 to 30,000 troops as well as asking to buy aircraft. We start a campaign of promoting nationalism within Yemen itself. As the war is dragged on by the French they are portrayed as an imperialist threat.
  • Federation of the Americas: With the usage of nuclear weapons the Federation public and government are all shocked this limited nuclear exchange has killed hundreds of thousands of people and the use of a weapon in China could potentially end up killing millions. The Federation in response to this, unveils the Ares 1 ICBM and in a mass process puts nearly 1000 strategic weapons onto these missiles as its nuclear stockpile soars to nearly 2000. This also ends up with the Federation mounting tactical nuclear weapons on its new FMI TCM-2 "Tempest" cruise missiles which allow for ships and aircraft carrying these missiles to carry out precision tactical strikes with nuclear weapons. The Federation also unveils two new major innovations in naval engineering, nuclear powered submarines, and nuclear powered carriers with the Ballistic Missile Submarine Beowulf being launched and the nuclear powered supercarrier Saõ Paulo. The Saõ Paulo is expected to be able to hold 120 aircraft normally but scheduled design changes in aircraft put this number to drop to about 70 in the future. The Federation continues building military equipment heavily increasing all numbers of equipment by vast amounts preparing for the Third World War to involve the Federation and her Allies. The Federation also Fields the M-22 APC and its M-45 LMG expanding mechanized and infantry capabilities. The development of the Federation's attack helicopters continue with prototypes finished and under testing with expected fielding in the early 60's. The nation shows clear signs of heavy industrial expansion with all of its light and heavy industries showing more and more improvement. The resource exploitation all over South America continues. Multiple Federation universities begin to be listed as some of the most attractive in the world rivaling some of the Ivy League schools in the US. The Federation continues to build a major supply route to Turkey to allow for this network to support an invasion of the USSR. The Federation continues building of its new modern battleship taking away one of the gun turrets in favor of a large cruise missile battery with nuclear capabilities.
  • Federation of India: The constant state of war leads to massive boost of war industries, particularly the aerospace and arms industries, and they are becoming the main industrial employers in India. Nehru remains the first Prime Minister of India, and with the collapse of the PRC capital we launch a counterinvasion of Beijing of 500,000 troops to retake the city of Beijing and we join with the Allied forces to take the city. We continue development on nuclear weapons.

1959.0

The Budapest accords continue with the war footing remaining until a final peace is concluded.

The PRC suffers heavily from supply shortages attempting to keep its massive army in place and its worried that the Army may collapse before the Beijing offensive can take place. The thought of peace however as well as a legal Communist Party brings some more moderate PRC leaders to the table in Budapest

South Africa continues to see increased white immigration as thousands leave Europe. Australia sees a similar increase as white settlers continue to immigrate to Australia.

A Famine occurs in China with upwards of 70 million Chinese without potential access to enough food. The Civil war and nuclear weapons use are blamed for this.

The Italian offensive into Albania while minor sees relations between NATO and Warsaw Pact countries deteorirate. The sees much condemnation from Poland.

Can all major powers involved in the Budapest Accords please vote on whether to fully apply them or not.

  • Italy: Italian officials are shocked at Yugoslav incursions into Albania, which they believe are unprovoked. Bombing runs with the 250 new bombers constructed in the last half-year begin against the Yugoslav blockade. Italian troops in Albania prepare for a defensive, knowing the blockade will prevent them from retreating. Heavy aircraft and naval production continue. More heavy industry is constructed in Naples and Florence, and construction of facilities begins in Venice and Milan. Recruitment has brought the number of troops in Italy to 350,000, and these troops begin an offensive in northern Yugoslavia. Nuclear production slows, with the final outcome leaving Italy with five missiles.
    • Albania: The Albanian people see the Yugoslav offensive as a way for Yugoslavia to assert hegemony over them. The provisional government begins recruitment for an Albanian army, and manages to gain 2000 recruits. Propaganda begins spreading promoting Albanian nationalist and anti-Communist sentiment. Reconstruction and industrialization continue.
  • United States: American industry and economy continues to grow exponentially after the end of the War. The industrial sector redirects their efforts from the previous war effort to domestic products. As a result, technologies such as automobiles and television become more prevalent in the nation. Other electronic media also starts going to production as well, based on the miraculous devices that cracked the enigma code years earlier. Much federal funding is poured into developing long-range nuclear missiles, as well as extra-terrestrial rockets. The population of the US grows rapidly after the end of the war, leading to this next generation being referred to as "Baby Boomers". Swing music becomes most popular among teenage jazz fans.

Many Americans mourn for the lives lost in Nome and Portland, with many seeing this as proof of the Russians as worse monsters than the Fascists of World War II. The US strongly encourages France to accept the Budapest Accords the war in Europe continues. Military occupation ends in Siberia but some American bases are kept on the Bering Islands. Nuclear bases are built in Alaska and Yukon to detect and respond to Soviet attacks in a moment's notice.
  • The United Kingdom: We continue our offensive in China covering most of the east coast and meet the Indian soldiers around Tibet and Myanmar. We wish the Republic of China to take full control of Chinese land and all members of the Chinese Communist Party sentenced to a life in prison. We ask the Arab states if we can join their new organisation because the nations in the Middle East are some of our biggest concerns at the moment. (will add more later. Can someone leave the link to the Suez Canal negotations for me?)
  • 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.

  • British West Africa: We improve the infrastructure. We modernize the buildings and build some rails and roads to our bordering countries. Naval ships constructed successfully. Apart from recruiting more troops, the military stands 300,000 troops in total.
  • Yugoslavia: We now face a difficult decision, defend North Yugoslavia or concentrate on Albania. After much thought, Tito decides to withdraw all troops from Albania after they abandoned Communism and concentrate on defending and attacking in North Yugoslavia. We begin a blockade of Albania. 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 hope to send the first Yugoslavian man to space sometimes in the 70s or 80s. We improve medicine and hospitals in Yugoslavia.
  • 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 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.

  • Spanish North Africa: There is a referendum to decide has decided that the entire of Western Sahara to Sidi Ifni, Rif including Tangier since both have a high Spanish population and propaganda for the Rif to remain. Our 45,000 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 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 65,000 people.

  • i never agreed to that part completely, Sean, and I haven't said yes on the game yet. We need to talk first aout a few things.With Blood and Iron (talk) 12:56, October 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • Romania: We secretly send supplies to Communist rebels in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. We continue supporting the Greek Communists and the Crown's Communist Party. We stop trading with the Netherlands guns. We remain neutral in the Soviet-American conflict and we do not join the Warsaw Pact and NATO war. We also suggest a major attack against Athens to the PRG.
  • British East Africa: Hearing about the independence of India, an idea of an independent Sudanese-Ugandan state has spread across the colony. People of East Africa have started a revolt and have stopped sending gold to the United Kingdom. We are trying to take over the military weapons. We ask that negotiations of independence will be made for the partition of Sudanese-Uganda.
  • Federation of the Americas: With the essential end to the Chinese Global Crisis, the Federation begins pulling many of its troops home and demobilizing its industry and manpower reserved. This has led to a relative heavy supply in almost all arms, armour, and especially aircraft. The large amount of military equipment puts the Federation at a loss on how to use it. However with the lack of more military bases across the country, the Federation invests heavily into development of military infrastructure across the country, particularly Air Bases, more military presence to keep a Secured Amazon resource frontier from illegal operations. Along side this the Federation military investment expands into nuclear hardening many of its metro systems, and building underground shelters. Many companies are required by multiple newly enacted laws to build subsurface nuclear shelters which are vigiourously checked by a Government organization tasked with the quality checking of these Nuclear Bunkers. The Federation sees a period of great prosperity setting in with many new businesses showing immense profitability and many industrial centers having expanded well enough along to be competitive with its Great Northern Neighbor the United States. The Federation continues mounting of nuclear weapons onto missiles. The Nation also begins to see many of its Eastern Highways coming together and fully linking many cities along the Coast and in the Open Argentine areas As well as pushing solidly into the Brazilian Hinterlands as well. The Railway systems running through the Southern Federation territories connecting many of the Southern and central cities finally connects, uniting many of these cities like never before. The Federation begins the development of new classes of all ships to brings many of its ships into the Modern Age. The Aircraft development continues as well. The Development of the Uniaõ class Battleship continues with many new technologies being consideed on this ship. The Federation Special forces show a notable expansion as the Amphibious Shock Corps is nearly a 50,000 strong force, and the Espadas grow into a large but covert force of nearly 5000. The Federation begins a major program to increase its Nuclear Submarine count.
  • Yemen: Seeing that there is a little chance of a continuing global conflict, we demobilize our forces and restart constructing our infrastructure. We create more schools and start mining copper.
  • Federation of India: The Chinese Civil War may be coming to a close, but the impact on our nation shall forever be remembered. As a result, we have started to build a great military-industrial complex. Many new companies have sprung up focusing on developing aerospace and making arms, with the competion between these new companies fueling the economy. An act to expand the highway/freeway system of this nation enacted. Meanwhile, air bases are also built as well as nuclear weapons and nuclear bunkers.

1959.5

The Budapest Accords show mostly agreement as just a few side terms are hammered out. The Main terms come into play. The Ending of the Chinese Civil war begins with Soviet Forces essentially stopping their support for the Chinese Communists and waiting for more orders from home.

The German Referendum is scheduled to take place within the next six months and within the next six months all forces according to the Budapest Accords are to Withdraw from Germany and leave the Referendum to its devices. The West and East German states rejoice at this possible attempt to reunify and begin hammering out particulars of a reunified government if the Referendum of both nations leads to such an outcome.

The Rhodesian Settlers request to become an independent state under British influence and to house British bases. This is to maintain the White State mentality of Rhodesia as well as allow the British still a preferable market. This Rhodeisan Union group puts heavy pressure on remaining nearby colonies to remain with the British.

The Indonesian Nationalist Front finally comes around in the Island of Java. Sayuti Melik leading this movement of nearly 500,000 Indonesian forces lead the Charge for independence attacking the Dutch in mass in the center of Power in Jakarta. The Garrison is unable to fight this surprise assault effectively and surrenders severely hampering the Dutch Prestige. This leads to the De Facto independence of Indonesia. The Nationalism movement here immediately requests help from the Federation and the SDP, while a more Democratic movement in favor of Aligning with the United States takes some power as well causing unknown divides in the islands currently.

Tanzania seeing immense pressure from Rhodesia and British politicians as well as economic and political ruin in its future, refuses to allow an independence referendum but instead shows a White governor and several thousand British Troops arriving in Tanzania with intent to settle the area much like the French are doing with Algeria.

The French Settlement of Algeria continues with large new White communities springing up. The estimated white population of Algeria is somewhere near two million.

  • 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. Elvis Presely makes a public debut in December to a crowd of screaming fans, inspiring a new form of jazz known as Rock and Roll. This youth culture also becomes more publically active, working towards charitable works in the nation and around the globe. The Global Free Economic Union (GFRU) is a multinational private organization dedicated to ensuring the continuation of free economy in the world. 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. NASA is founded this year, and an orbital satellite is scheduled to launch next year. 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. The US sends economic aid and military hardware to the democratic government of Indonesia.
    • The Nationalists led the revolt, and neither side even had a delineated border yet. Until things settle down no way troops and be reliably deployed. Also 300,000 just out of the blue is a bit ridiculous. Even the US didn't immediately send 300,000 troops to vietnam for ten years ... -Feud

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. Following the successful defence of the Congo over 15,000 POW's have been captured, along with their equipment which has been absorbed into our current military stockpile. (To any mods are Portugal and The Netherlands still at war?). With the quieting front in the Congo, a census to accurately measure the white population is organised. It shows a total white population of 200,000 compared to the native population estimated at around 4.5 million.
  • Italy:The king publicly transfers power back to democratic institutions at the beginning of August, as per the long-honored tradition of the Roman dictator. Recruitment has reached its peak, with a total military force of 1 million at the max. The number of bombers in the Italian Air Force (not counting those already in Albania) has now reached 500, which military officials see as satisfactory, so aircraft production begins to slow (but not completely stop), and transfer to armor, artillery and shells. These aircraft begin to divide to perform different tasks. 200 join the aircraft already in Albania to perform operations in southern Yugoslavia, and 200 more begin offensive bombings against Yugoslav forces in the north (though exactly where in the north, I'm not entirely sure). The other 100 begin to use a tactic called "Propaganda bombing" in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia (which is exactly what it sounds like, unless it sounds like something other than "dropping propaganda from planes"). The propaganda in question advertises the benefits of capitalism, and the inability of the Soviets to protect the system they believe will "take over the world" from Italy. The writer was quite tounge-in-cheek about it, and probably would have been sacked if the people he passed it off to hadn't fallen over laughing. Discussion begins as to how Yugoslavia should be handled when (Read: if) it meets defeat at the hands of Italy.
    • ​Albania: Italian forces in Albania receive the aerial reinforcements, and begin to devise a plan as to how they will break the Yugoslav blockade. They decide thus: 200,000 troops with support from 50 bombers, 20 fighters, 20 tanks and 20 artillery would attempt an offensive into Macedonia and Kosovo to liberate them from Communism, while another 200,000 troops with 190 bombers, 20 fighters, 20 tanks and 20 artillery make an offensive into Macedonia in order to occupy port cities through which they could be resupplied. The other close to 100,000 remain in Albania to prevent Greek rebels from getting any funny ideas. Reconstruction efforts and industrialization continue, with reconstruction projected for completion by 1961, save any major incident.
  • 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.
  • Yugoslavia continues to fight against the Italians in Northern Yugoslvia, hoping to drive out Italy from the country. When we drives out Italy fro. The county we begin an invasion of Northern Italy. We continue a blocksastion of Albania. 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. (Posted by Person for AH28)
  • Romania: We secretly send supplies to Communist rebels in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. We continue supporting the Greek Communists and the Crown's Communist Party. We stop trading with the Netherlands guns. We remain neutral in the Soviet-American conflict and we do not join the Warsaw Pact and NATO war. However, we send volunteers to Yugoslavia, which are military personnel. We also suggest a major attack against Athens to the PRG.
  • 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 weither the French state should intervene in the lowlands and establish a right wing government.
  • 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 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.
    • Israel offers to France to peacefully merge with the Free State of the Levant to create a federation where Israel and the Free State are equal in power under 1 government(this country would be entirely led by me, Sean). This is presented as an alternative to an annexation which is preferable for all parties involved.
  • East Germany: The end of the war is celebrated but suddenly a new crisis takes shape. Large scale demonstrations break out across the country, fueled by the Communist Party's recent purges, their handling of the war, and a rumor that the government was going to boycott the upcoming unification referendum. Military units are sent to contain the protests but quickly defect to the protesters' side when ordered to fire on them. The protesters organize themselves into a new party, the Christian Democratic Union, and call for the Communist Party to step down and allow free elections. The Communist Party holds and emergency cession and votes to step down when the protesters threaten to storm the meeting hall. A new government is formed by the CDU until elections can be held. Free speech and other democratic rights are allowed and government industry is slowly privatized. East Germany begins to rebuild from the war using allied funds. We supervise the withdrawal of foreign troops and call on both sides to recognize our new government.
    • '​French Dip:' Paris recognizes the new government and welcomes East Germany to the free world, feeling that the French lead invasion was a success and the first step towards liberating eastern Europe from Communism. In a private comunique to Berlin De Gaulle offers a personal apology for any damage that was inflicted upon the German people and offers a hand of friendship to the German people in the hopes of ending 200 years of rivalry between the French and German people.
      • East Germany accepts your apology and Pact of Friendship calling it a new era of peace between our nations.
    • The US recognizes the new government, and offers them membership in NATO. The President offers to visit Berlin next year as reconstruction continues.
      • East Germany: We would love to have the president in Berlin, But wish to remain as a neutral buffer between NATO and the Warsaw Pact for the time being.
    • Kurdistan offers a trade deal, offering discounted minerals and oil to help fuel German reconstruction in return for discounted German manufactured goods.
      • East Germany: We accept the deal.
    • Italy recognizes the new government of Germany, and offers a renewal of the historic alliance between Germany and Italy, in this incarnation as two countries which offer mutual assistance in a combined effort to right the wrongs of the past and move toward a better future.
      • East Germany: We accept your offer of an alliance.
    • Federation Dip: We recognize the this German Party but inform them that the government will need to fold into the West German counterpart if the Referendum is successful. We offer to bring back Federation Support for a Germany Neutral of NATO or the PACT and offer membership into the SDP. We also Remind East Germany where this new freedom comes from and we take major credit in the allowance of the East German State to unify with its Western Brethren.
      • East Germany: We thank the federation for their support of German Reunification, but inform them that we wish to remain neutral with the major foreign alliances at this time.
      • UK Diplomacy: We recognise East Germany and offer it to join the EU as an observer so that it will be able to stay neutral and help resolves conflicts in it's continent.
    • The State of Israel still does not harbor warm relations towards Germany(be it East or West) but welcomes any democracy, and thus welcomes East Germany too.
  • Spain: We begin updating our weaponry to modern standards. We will begin supporting Iberian nationalists in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. On the French border we will place 98,750 troops and 371,250 troops on Portuguese border. We build up bases near our settlements in Africa to secure them from any aggression. All non-Spaniards have the chance to move back to Morocco if they wish by next year.
    • Spanish North Africa: There is a referendum to decide has decided that the entire of Western Sahara to Sidi Ifni, Rif including Tangier since both have a high Spanish population and propaganda for the Rif to remain. Our 45,000 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 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 65,000 people. We will send a Spanish governor into the area for feedback. 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 25,000 Spaniards.
  • British East Africa: African nationalists protest in the streets, attack any British loyalists, burn down houses and invade British military and diplomatic bases. As the people ignore the British Governor's protests of peace, this revolt gets bigger. Some Sudanese and Uganda refugees are migrating to nearby African nations or colonies. They will not rest until they receive independence from the United Kingdom. British East Africans seeks support from their sister colony, British Rhodesia.
  • 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 would like to develop economic and diplomatic relations with the world's third superpower, the Federation of South America. 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.
    • Federation Dip: We will agree.
  • Federation of the Americas: With the essential end to the Chinese Global Crisis, the Federation begins pulling many of its troops home and demobilizing its industry and manpower reserved. This has led to a relative heavy supply in almost all arms, armour, and especially aircraft. The large amount of military equipment puts the Federation at a loss on how to use it. However with the lack of more military bases across the country, the Federation invests heavily into development of military infrastructure across the country, particularly Air Bases, more military presence to keep a Secured Amazon resource frontier from illegal operations. Along side this the Federation military investment expands into nuclear hardening many of its metro systems, and building underground shelters. Many companies are required by multiple newly enacted laws to build subsurface nuclear shelters which are vigiourously checked by a Government organization tasked with the quality checking of these Nuclear Bunkers. The Federation sees a period of great prosperity setting in with many new businesses showing immense profitability and many industrial centers having expanded well enough along to be competitive with its Great Northern Neighbor the United States. With the secured end of the Cuban revolution the island state is officially integrated as a full state of the Federation, with Citizenship being granted to all.The Federation continues mounting of nuclear weapons onto missiles. The Nation also begins to see many of its Eastern Highways coming together and fully linking many cities along the Coast and in the Open Argentine areas As well as pushing solidly into the Brazilian Hinterlands as well. The Railway systems running through the Southern Federation territories connecting many of the Southern and central cities finally connects, uniting many of these cities like never before. The Development of the Nations population has continued at a pretty heavy pace with 169 million people and growing rapidly as much more suburban territory and new towns and cities begin springing up between many of the larger Southern Cities. Some notable growth in Venezuela and Colombia too has shown populationb growth all around. The Federation begins the development of new classes of all ships to brings many of its ships into the Modern Age. The Aircraft development continues as well. The Development of the Uniaõ class Battleship continues with many new technologies being consideed on this ship. The Federation Special forces show a notable expansion as the Amphibious Shock Corps is nearly a 50,000 strong force, and the Espadas grow into a large but covert force of nearly 5000. The Federation begins a major program to increase its Nuclear Submarine count. With the independence of Indonesia the Federation immediately sends support to Sayuti Melik in particularly funding, and secretly military equipment furnishing Melik with vehicles and aircraft in Abundance and also offers to build the New Indonesian state a naval force over the next decade if they request it. The Federation begins anticipation for a potential Indonesian Civil war seeing many Pro-US and Pro-Federation leaders within Indonesia. The Federation makes sure all military equipment shipped to the Indonesian army is to nationalists only.
  • Republic of Malaya: We support the democratic leaders in Indonesia. We increase a naval presence near Kalimantan and the Java Sea. Several reserve units are settled in Singapore.
  • Yemen: With the passing of the Third world war we return to a peace time footing. We continue the expansion of our education system, our new water plant and factories are completed. We wish for foreign investment in a plastics plant.
  • The United Kingdom: We agree to Rhodesia's terms and give it independence and remind all British East African colonies wishing to secede of the Queen's Mandate. If they would like to leave they need to look at it and agree or disagree. We continue to buildup nuclear weapons and our military. We militarise the Sudan and Uganda and put down any revolts for the time being and hope to reach a peaceful solution to the problems occuring there. We also recognise East Germany and ask it to join the EU as an observer. (Can one of the mods please explain why WIII is happening? I've been out for a while)
  • Not a mod but I believe that the PRC attacked the RoC, causing the West (NATO) to intervene while the USSR supported the PRC, which then led to France leading an offensive into the east of Europe. Doesn't matter much, it's done anyway.
  • Thats the long and short of it yes. -Feud
  • 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. Israel offers to France to peacefully merge with the Free State of the Levant to create a federation where Israel and the Free State are equal in power under

one government (this country would be entirely led by me, Sean). This is presented as an alternative to an annexation which is preferable for all parties involved. Israel abstains from recognizing Indonesia for now. The first Israeli Football League is started, with only 8 teams currently playing, however it is still a welcome source of entertainment.

    • French Secret Dip: The french invite israeli representatives to come to Paris to hammer out a final agreement on the status of the levant and Israel's position within the French Sphere.
  • British West Africa: British forces now recruited to the military, while military expands more it's space to gain more troops. The economy invests and hopefully to reach a good income. The buildings and some structured modern buildings begin to build and it could take a while. In Lagos, the population still grows and it could be more likely for more people to live.
