1875

The Chinese population once again begins to protest against the total incompetence of their government, citing their inability to maintain control of Chinese territories. The ideas of Socialism begin to spread in China, and a new movement known as the Socialist Front begins to take shape.

In Germany, the North and South continue to clash. While the South has larger numbers, the North has more technology.

The uprising in Ireland has been put down by the British army, and the leaders of the Republic are arrested. Britain turns its attention to Europe, declaring its support for the Protestant north and once again deploying 50,000 soldiers to Germany.

Nebraska and Illinois fall to the Confederacy, while Montana and the Dakotas are occupied by Canada.

Königsberg falls to the South German armies marching through Poland, taking the city. Morale in the German Empire is lowered by the loss of the city.

Belgium falls overwhelmed by the advancing Dutch and French forces. King Leopold II manages to escape to his colony in Africa.

Korean economy has taken a huge hit by loaning a huge sum of money to fund the Hawaiian pineapple industry, with extremely high interest rates. Even with huge taxes, Korea is unable to make the first repayment, effectively going bankrupt, although Korean government insists that they are not bankrupt, fearing further damage in the Korean economy. Please check the previous turn.

  • Westralia: The term of the last Parliament and the last of Frederick Mayweather's Prime Ministership comes to an end as the PM may only serve two terms simultaneously. The 1875 Congressional Elections are held this year, to elect the 1st Royal Congress. 100 seats in the National Assembly and 50 in the Senate are available. A preferential voting system is utilised, and decreed that a party must secure at least 2% of the vote to win a seat. The Democratic Labour Party (Demlab in shorthand), on its platform of improving income equality, wins 62 of the seats in the National Assembly, and 28 in the Senate, thus becoming the largest party in Congress. The National Unity Party, declaring an ideology of liberal conservatism, becomes the second-largest party with 28 seats in the National Assembly and ten in the Senate. Other parties include the Christian Democratic Union (3, 2), Westralian Socialist Party (3, 5), National Miners' Party (2, 3), and the National Agrarian Party (2, 2). A few days later the two largest parties, the DLP and NUP, put forth their candidate for Prime Minister. The Ministerial candidate must be an MNA (Member of the National Assembly), and is chosen by each party's central organ. A first-past-the-post system is used for the Ministerial elections, through popular vote. The DLP's candidate, Harold Symons, wins 73% of the vote, while his NUP opponent Paul Arlyn, 1st Earl Arlyn, wins only 27%. Symons is therefore to be inaugurated as the second Prime Minister of Westralia in July, and the Earl Arlyn becomes Leader of the Opposition. In other news, the new currency, the Sovereign, is introduced into circulation. Our invasion of Hong Kong goes smoothly, and Westralian flags are raised all around the island as our forces occupy Hong Kong. We continue our efforts to evacuate Christians from China, and open up Hong Kong as a safe haven for Christians. Outgoing Prime Minister Frederick Mayweather is rewarded for his efforts by the King, who decides to knight him, inducting him into the Most Excellent and Noble Order of the Black Swan, as its first knight. Sir Frederick Mayweather, a non-partisan, chooses to retire from politics, instead devoting his time to the wine-fields of Alexandria.
  • German Empire (North Germany): The invasion of our southern neighbor continues. Meanwhile, the government secured a bid from the arms company Walther to produce arms like rifles and pistols. We also welcome the British aid for us, and planned a joint Anglo-Imperial naval bombardment of our southern neighbor's Adriatic coastline and land troops there, tooWe also ask Italy to use this as an opportunity to snatch Italian-speaking regions of the south. Meanwhile, the Labor League hopes to use the war and turn it to a Socialist revolution by recruiting some of the ethnic minorities oppressed by the South, but still Frank elects to cooperate with government in the meantime.
    • MOD: Sorry, Ist, but you can't do this, as ATL Austria had previously ceded most Italian-speaking lands to Italy upon Italy's initial unification. ~Tim
    • MOD: South Germany has no more coast due to the Eastern European Peace Treaty (Emancipation Map Game). Also, there is only one minority left in South Germany: the Czechs, who have been oppressed to hell. ~AM
  • Guiana Federation: The infrastructure and military is continue to improve. Some roads are looking to be almost complete in various cities and towns in our nation, besides there's more to come. Military looks to be not taking too many risks of recruiting many more troops in the military of Guiana Federation, it seems that the military looks to recruit 100-200 troops. Military is not seeking to take a development of a new weapon. As it stands, there's nothing to discuss. The port at the coast of Georgetown, seems that some of the ships look to be built and it might take a few years to complete its construction.
  • South German Empire: Emperor Franz Joseph I declares that it can only be one Germany, so it shall be ours. Our 200,000 troops in Königsberg, after securing East Prussia, cross Poland again and attack North Germany heading for Berlin. Steyr-Daimler-Puch has grown immensely, due to our huge orders of rifles and other weapons and continues to be an innovative weapons manufacturer, while supplying many of our needs in military equipment and ammo. Krupp and Steyr-Daimler-Puch are competing for government contracts for war material, which augment their growth and quality. Development of our nation continues, improving our infrastructure and our industry. We continue centralizing the South German Empire.
    • South German Diplomacy: We ask our ally Denmark to join the war against Northern Germany as they are as much of a threat to them as they are to us. We also ask Netherlands to blockade the Northern Germans as they are as much of a threat to them as they are to us. We ask France and Russia for further support.
    • French Secret Diplomacy:​ We'll keep sending supplies to our National Guard soldiers, and another 20,000 have "volunteered".
  • Hawaii: Our military and infrastructure improve. Modernization of Honolulu continues, and our settlements grow. Cultivation of guavas by the Lana'i Pineapple Co. has been working, and may save the company given expansion and time. To save their economy, we strongly advise Korea to pull out of the pineapple industry, and invest in our pearl, fishing, tourism (too early for tourism?), and perhaps our early guava industry; we will place subsidations on any trade products to help their economy recover. We ask Bora BoraHuahineSamoaRaiateaTu'i Tonga, and Fiji to join a Pacific defensive coalition, to better defend ourselves from foreign colonialism. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
    • MOD: Huahine, Samoa, Raiatea, Tu'i Tonga and Fiji are at war against you and Bora Bora, you are bigger threat to them than the colonial powers.
    • OOC Hawaii: We made peace a few years ago; check the archives if you must.
    • MOD: Samoa and Fiji accept
    • MOD: Huahine, Raiatea, Tu'i Tonga decline.
    • Bora Bora Diplomacy: We accept. (Also Raiatea was annexed.)
    • Korea OOC: I already did?
    • OOC Hawaii: The mod events say otherwise ...
  • Confederate States of America: We continue our war with America. We tell France that we would support Quebecois independence only if Canada, our ally, would also be willing to recognize it. The current President is Augustus Hill Garland, who in the wake of the war, establishes a centralized and functional Supreme Court, and refuses to suspend Habeas Corpus. Furthermore, he diverts some federal money to the construction of schools and infrastructure. We place our primary focus on military, and our secondary focus on Commerce. Garland attempts to slightly increase the role of the federal government. Learning from the Civil War, we move our capital south to the city of Augusta, Georgia. Though it is a small city, it is perfectly located in the center of the country, is on the border between two states, and is difficult to reach militarily. With Illinois and Nebraska under our control, we assign Simon Bolivar Buckner as military governor of Illinois, and Edmund Kirby Smith as military governor of Nebraska. Garland improves the size of the navy, and constructs a West Point-style army school in Charlottesville, Virginia, and creates a similar naval school in Pensacola, Florida.
    • MOD: Canada reluctantly recognizes Quebecois independence. But asks Quebec/France in return to support them in the war against the USA as the USA are a threat both to Canada and Quebec.
    • French Diplomacy: We accept Canadian/CSA terms, and we start an invasion of the USA through California, with the 40,000 regular French troops in Mexico, supported by the Mexican army. We request that California is reincorporated to Mexico, as it was prior to 1848. We propose a Conference to be held in Augusta to decide the boundaries of North America after the war ends, and define the border of Quebec.
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: We continue expanding our economy, and industrialize more. We expand 10 px into Africa northward and 10 px into Borneo on the eastern coast. We begin turning Zanzibar into our colony. We propose a peace to Leopold II of Belgium, if he gives us the entirety of Flanders. We begin influencing Griqualand West, supporting the diamond mines in Kimberley and recognizing the Griqua as a nation. We invite the leaders of South Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, the United Kingdom, Jutland, Russia and the German Empire to the wedding of the Prince of Orange Willem and Grand Duchess Maria in Amsterdam. (MOD needed for Spain, Italy and the UK).
    • South African Dip: We refuse the entrance of the Netherlands into Griqualand West as South Africa has had miners in there since 1870. Troops move into Griqualand West to protect South African interests.
    • OOC Netherlands: OTL is not applicable, since Southern Africa changed so much. Thus, you have nothing to claim or do.
    • OOC South Africa: When no mod events have been mentioned and it is something with the magnitude of that as well as something that would pretty much have no difference based on ATL the time period (Diamond mines are going to be established) OTL is assumed.
    • French Diplomacy: Napoleon IV and his wife will attend the wedding, and also enjoys the situation to offer the remaining of Belgium, if they agree to the Dutch peace offer, to join France as an autonomous province, with the Royal Family keeping its status and opening the port of Calais to be used as a base of operations, should they still wish any colonizing efforts, although those will be French colonies, under Belgian administration. The Emperor also stated his wishes for the South African-Dutch disputes to come to a peaceful conclusion, since both share an historical bound, although stating he is currently inclined to support the Boers in the current dispute.
    • South German Diplomacy: Emperor Franz Joseph I and his wife, Empress Elisabeth will attend the wedding.
    • MOD: Alfonso XII of Spain and Victor Emmanuel II of Italy agree to attend.
    • MOD: Queen Victoria declines the invitation.
    • Jutland Diplomacy: King Christian I will attend the wedding along with his wife Queen Louise.
  • Peru: We send 25,000 troops to the Ecuadorian border and ask Colombia to discuss the situation. We also ask the Dutch for a trade agrement and we start to modernise our nation. We also send 750 people to Easter Island along with 250 troops. We ask Colombia for an alliance.
    • Dutch Diplomacy: We agree and establish the Batavia - Lima sea route.
  • Bora Bora: We continue to fund our plantations and fishing companies while adopting western techniques. We attempt mining on Raiatea. We also start a colony in the Cook Islands.
    • MOD: Small pacific islands cannot have colonies. You can only expand there.
  • France: The heir to the throne is baptized, and is now fully incorporated into the Roman Catholic religion. Napoleon IV, in his speech for the opening of the Parliament, has again renewed his commitment to the war effort against the xenophobic China, and so keep suppling the troops and navy stationed there. Empress-Mother Eugénie, in the name of the Emperor, inaugurates the Naval Base in Tahiti, with around 2,500 regular soldiers currently stationed and training under rigorous conditionsEmpress Gisela goes to the former Franz Joseph Island, in the Patagonian coast, were a small, yet pompous, ceremony takes place, renaming the Island “Empress Gisela”. Since she is the daughter of Franz Joseph, the local residents cheers her presence, and the government announces that the place will be a free-trade port for all French allies in America. Also a military base, with around 2500 regular soldiers, and a new summer residence for the monarchy, to be named “Ville Gisela”, are going to be built in the island, hoping to heat the local economy. The Emperor has sent a letter, stating his wish for Mexico to join the North American conflict, allowing the French troops in the area, around 40,000 regular soldiers, to be used in the effort together with the Mexican regular troops. Maximilian agrees and starts an invasion across California. The Parliament has approved a modernization of the Navy, which will follow the standards requested by the officers that defected from the UK. As such, some heavy and light ships are going to be decommissioned. The Emperor has offered to sell those ships to any allied nation. If none request them, they’ll be scrapped. The company for infrastructure investments has made some success in renovating the railway system in France, and seeks to establish some infrastructure across the whole French Empire. From the 40,000 troops in Indochina, 30,000 keep seeking Christian missionaries in China and send them either to the catholic safe heaven in Hanoi or to the Westralian safe heaven in Hong Kong. The remaining 10,000 are sent to occupy and establish basic roads around the recently purchased Laos, after the agreement with the King of Siam. The Emperor, as per constitutional duties, announces the call for elections for the second half of this year, making the first scheduled elections since the new constitution was approved in 1871. For making a more liberal campaign, the Emperor has approved a new law establishing full liberty of expression, including for criticism against His Imperial Majesty himself. The law proposed by the Chamber of Deputies including women in the universal voting has been paralyzed, as the Senate refuses to vote the bill. There has been small, yet well noticed by the local press and the Emperor, protest against the position of the upper house. The Emperor has sent a letter congratulating his relative for having being well received in Quebec, and has sent supplies and financial aid for him to build himself a Royal Palace. When the conflict with the USA ends, Napoleon IV confirms his presence in a Quebecois coronation ceremony.
    • OOC Siam: Not holding it against you, but I already said in 1874.5 what the name of the King of Siam is, Rama V.
  • Toucouleur Empire: After seeing the Belgian king flees to his colony in Africa and as we have sworn to help their nation, we dispatch around 10,000 troops to his colony. If any one nation attacks his city, they will be facing the full might of the Toucouleur Empire and our allies. We construct the Fortifications of New Bruxelles to help out in any defence that may be needed. The school system expansion grinds to a standstill as the majority of the cities now have a relatively large amount of schools. We make sure that any European colonization is stalled or destroyed.
  • Jutland: Seeing we cannot conduct our invasion of New brussels due to the Prussian Threat at our Doorsteps. We withdraw our invasion force and place 15,000 men in Ny Kiel to Protect it. We mobilize 30,000 troops in Saxe-Lauenburg and Holstein-Schleswig to Protect them. We declare war on the German Empire in protection of our ally the South German Empire. We begin conscription with propaganda to gain public support stating that the Prussian Oppressors will destroy us if we don't act now. We send an Army of 90,000 men to invade the German Empire's West coast. We conduct a blockade of all German ports with our entire fleet sending 200 ships to blockade them. At home public support is high due to the Previous Austro-Prussian War. We expand our colony of Ny Kiel 15 px east inward. Our navy increases by 15 ships, five warships and ten iron-clad ships. We begin to pressure the dutch to join the war in order to protect our two countries. Industralization continues in Saxe-Lauenburg.

1875.5

The United States, badly carved up from the Second North American War, sues for peace. The unprovoked attack upon its sovereign territory is seen as a war crime by Union Americans, but the Government in Washington, wishing to prevent further bloodshed, is willing to enter negotiations with the Coalition.

The Chinese government collapses as a new revolution begins in Nanking. Working in the background of this revolt is the Socialist Front, led by Chiang Ke-ch'iang. The angry revolutionaries, though disorganised, manage to topple the Republican government. The Socialist Front then seizes the opportunity and proclaims the foundation of the Chinese Socialist Republic, and the self-proclaimed President Chiang calls for an immediate "democratic peace".

With overwhelming international support in favour of South Germany, the tide of the war begins to turn against Berlin. South German troops overrun Northern borderlands. The North German Empire is surrounded by enemies, and the chaos rampant there causes an increase in Socialist activity.


  • Patagonia: On the 12 August, King Antoine I died in a hunting accident at the age of 50 years old after 15 years of reign. His funeral will be open to the population and a national day is ordered. Many noblemen and tribe Mapuche tribe leaders attempt the ceremony. His nephew, Prince Adrien-Jean de Tounens, is crowned the following month under the name of Jean I of Patagonia, being 31 years old at the time. His son, Vincent-Antoine de Tounens, became the crown prince at the age of 3. The Secretary of State Heiner von Kermann organize the whole ceremony. However, new division begin to appear between the new King and the Secretary of State. Foreign rulers and heads of state are invited to both funerals and crowning ceremony.
    • Westralian Diplomacy: Our new Prime Minister, Harold Symons, engages in his first state visit, travelling to Patagonia to pay his respects for their deceased King, and to witness the coronation and represent the Westralian people at the coronation of Jean I. He presents a gift of 1870 Stirling Wine to the newly-crowned King.
    • ​Hawaiian Diplomacy: Queen Ka'ahumanu IV will try to attend both ceremonies.
    • New Bruxelles Diplomacy: King Leopold II and his family will try to attend both ceremonies, although it is a difficult time at the moment.
    • Peruvian Diplomacy: We ask if we can send an advisor at the funeral for your king.
      • Patagonian Dip: Yes you can. It is not limited to monarchy (one of our best friends is Argentina, which is a republic).
    • French Diplomacy: The Empress-Mother Eugénie (representing His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor), accompanied by the Foreign Affairs Minister, will attend the funeral and the crowning. Flags at the nearby Empress Gisela Island will be lowered to half mast for mourning during four days.
  • Peru: We still modernise our nation and army. We also ask the French for some advisors. We also ask Colombia to talk with us for a treaty dealing how we will interact with Ecuador.
    • French Diplomacy: The government will send military advisors, that will be stationed in Empress Gisela Island and help training the Peruvian army.
  • Westralia: We now have firm control over Hong Kong, and proclaim the establishment of the Royal Swan Territory of Hong Kong. The first Governor, representative of the King and his Government, is General Edmund Holden, the commander of Westralian forces in China. Flags all over the country are lowered to half mast to mourn the death of Patagonia's King Antoine I.
  • JohnstonPlan Eman
    Hawaii:
     Our military and infrastructure improve, and modernization of Honolulu continues while our setlements continue to grow. The Prime Minister announces the Commonwealth's new plan to settle and develop Johnston Atoll, with the new town of Kamamalu (named after the queen's non-royal name), a guava (maybe pineapple) plantation, and a military fort; the settlers set sail for the atoll a few months later. To make our defensive coalition formal, we have all participants sign the Honolulu Pact in Honolulu (respectively). As our pineapple industries continue to decline, we invest in our other industries; we learn from the pineapple industry to not depend on a single industry, even the emerging guava cultivation. In other news, Princess Ka'ahumanu V celebrates her 8th birthday as plans for Prince Kamehameha VI's 10th birthday begin.
    • OOC Hawaii: Could a mod please check my upgrade app? Thanks.
  • New Bruxelles: We hesitantly agree to the Dutch offer, but we do ask if any of the civilians in Flanders wish to return Wallonia or New Bruxelles be allowed to do so. Now that the King is relocated to the colony, the government of the colony vastly improves, with the largest city, Hulzen, being declared the new capital. Work immediately shifts to more industrializing of New Brussels, as well as expanding the territory by another 5 px. We declare neutrality in the European conflicts, as we are unable to provide any aid in them. We thank the Toucouleur Empire for their aid, and promise to pay the nation back for their valuable aid. As the majority of Belgian territory is now located in the colony of New Bruxelles, as well as the Royal family having moved there, King Leopold II announces that the Kingdom of Belgium will now be known as the Kingdom of New Bruxelles.
  • North German Empire: With the tide of the war turning, popular satisfaction in the government begins to drop. Skyrocketing prices of wheat and potatoes, coupled with worsening labor conditions due to overstretching of the industries, begin to bellow unrest across the country. On July 8, the unpopular government, led by Chancellor Leo von Caprivi was ousted by a military coup led by Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Renner. Meanwhile, the Labor League, begins to set up revolutionary municipal councils, the most influential one being the Commune of Hamburg, led by Renier Frank, himself the leader of the League, in opposition to Renner's Commitee of Safety. The Kaiser was forced to flee to Sweden, then later to London on August 23.
    • MOD: The Kaiser's son, Frederick, is installed as the new Emperor by General Renner.
    • North Germany OOC: General Renner is basically playing the role of Kerensky in OTL Russia. Plus the Kaiser's family went with him. And my intentions of the Commitee of Safety is a provisional government, the throne is vacant.
    • MOD: Okay. ~Tim
  • Great Korean Empire:' With the Chinese government collapsing, we initiate a vast invasion of the resource-rich region of Manchuria to fuel further industrial expansion. Korean troops are ordered to loot major cities and seize any capital, whether financial or physical, and send them to Korea so more funds could be allocated to our modernisation programs. The government funds Chinese dissent among ethnic minorities to further loosen the already tenuous Chinese presence in Manchuria. The Emperor sends a diplomat to Japan, suggesting gradual unification as a bi-monarchy empire in order to pool our resources together to modernisation and domination of the Western Pacific trade routes and sea lanes. The terms are vague, and any terms could be discussed and revised. As part of our modernisation program, the industry, education, Westernisation and naval development continues to be heavily prioritised. The government of Korea decides withdraws all foreign investment and diverts as much capital as possible to privately owned export-oriented "national champions" that specialise in the secondary sector as a way to maintain Korea's industrial superiority over other oriental countries. The industrial output and the amount of essential infrastructure – such as paved roads, railway, canals, factories, schools, libraries, and residential buildings, continues to increase exponentially. Westernisation continues, with Western attire and architecture becoming more and more common.
    • South German Diplomacy: We loan $3 million ($65.37 million in current prices) to our ally to solve the economic problem, while we invest $2 million ($43.58 million in current prices) to support the Korean economy (a total of $108.95 million).
    • Japanese Diplomacy: After reviewing your offer we will accept after we discuss terms.
  • Guiana Federation: We continue improve infrastructure and military. Military slightly recruits more troops at least 150, while that is progressing. Georgetown's population is slightly increasing, but small not big. Indeed some of the buildings can be build more in Georgetown. Also at the port, the ships are almost completed during the construction of the ships. Although there will still be more to come as it stands that there's no plans.
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: We continue expanding our economy, and industrialize more. We expand 10 px into Africa northward and 10 px into Borneo on the eastern coast. We continue turning Zanzibar into our colony. We begin integrating Flanders into our country after the war. We continue influencing Griqualand West, supporting the diamond mines in Kimberley and recognizing the Griqua as a nation. We support the Jutlander blockade against North Germany, but do not officially join the war. We condemn the Hamburg Commune. We announce that Grand Duchess Maria is expecting.
    • Westralian Diplomacy: Stirling Palace has announced that the King is taking his young family to the Netherlands for a holiday, and to visit the King's extended family. The Queen will meet her in-laws for the first time, and the King will be introduced to the Grand Duchess. They will arrive at the beginning of next year, at which it is hoped the new Dutch royal child will have been born and will be able to meet his/her Westralian cousins. The queen's parents, Lord Oliver and Lady Frances Holloway, the 1st Earl and Countess Holloway, also tag along for the trip.
  • 'France: Seeing the Belgium king abandoned its people, the French army starts stabilizing the Wallonia region, and a plebiscite is to be held. The locals have four options: Wallonia joins France as a regular province; Wallonia joins France as an autonomous province, with more local say on local matters; Wallonia becomes an independent nation, under personal union with France;and Wallonia becomes a protectorate of France, with a new monarch to be appointed by the Emperor. (Should a MOD decide the result or can I choose?) The Emperor calls for a meeting of the Coalition against China and the Chinese representatives, to decide on peace terms to demand from China.' Industry keeps booming in France, suppling the South Germans, the French military and many more. The 1875 elections are held, and the Bonapartist Liberal Party retains a majority in the Lower Chamber. Napoleon IV is able to convince the Senate to accept the female suffrage, and as of the signature of the law later this year, women will now vote for all available positions, although is not certain they will be able to fill any political position. The Imperial Palace has released an official statement saying that the Empress is pregnant with the second child, to be born next year. The Parliament also approved increasing the number of regular army soldiers, from the current 550,000 to 600,000. They'll be recruited shortly along the following years. With these new positions, National Guard soldiers will be able to become regular soldiers. France also keeps suppling the Egyptian rebellion, sending the supplies through Ethiopia by land. Supplies are also send to Greece and the troops fighting as volunteers against North Germany. Construction of the Palace at Empress Gisela Island is almost complete. The Emperor has sent a letter to the Greek King, requesting him to hold a meeting of the Anti-Ottoman Pact in Athens, to discuss the plans of the Coalition.
  • Confederate States of America: We continue our war with America. After the American call for peace, we call for the Treaty of Harrisburg, where we make a proposal, in which we would like the USA and Canada to sign (MOD RESPONSE)The current President is Augustus Hill Garland, who in the wake of the war, establishes a centralized and functional Supreme Court, and refuses to suspend Habeas Corpus. Furthermore, he diverts some federal money to the construction of schools and infrastructure. We place our primary focus on Commerce, and our secondary focus on Culture. Garland attempts to slightly increase the role of the federal government. Learning from the Civil War, we move our capital south to the city of Augusta, Georgia. Garland states that the name of the capital will remain Augusta, but in honor of his first name, and it will be in a federal District of Dixie. Although it is a small city, it is perfectly located in the center of the country, is on the border between two states, and is difficult to reach militarily. We continue construction of new buildings there, and construct railroads from there to Atlanta, Charleston, Savannah, Macon, and Wilmington (NC).
    • French Diplomacy: The Minister of Foreign Affairs will attend the meeting at Harrisburg.
  • South Africa: Pretoria continues to industrialize. Intermarrying in Natal continues. Immgration contiues. Mining contiues. Africans continue to move to Bantuland. Troops move into Griqualand West and occupy it in order to protect the Prtiorius Mining Companies mine in Kimberly and South African interests. Griqualand west is annexed into the republic.
  • Toucouleur Empire: We continue to support the kingdom of New Brussels by maintaining the garrison and we continue to build the fortification for the city. We continue to place money into the infrastructure, economy, industry and military of our nation. We extend the age for education to five-to-eight as teachers have been complaining that they are not given the necessary time to be able to teach these children. We build fortifications around our other cities as we try to make sure our nation does not fall to the Europeans. We send troops and an offer for an alliance to the nation of Cayor as it holds bitter grudges against the Europeans as they conquered them and they are in a key position to either vassalize them or form an alliance. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
  • Australia: Graham Berry has become the new prime minster of the country after defeating former prime minster by fifteen seats. Trade between the country is also up between the countries of Westrailia and the Dutch East Indies in the region. As France continues the war, we are going to stay out just in case they switch their alliance and attack us.
  • Papal States: The collapse of the Chinese government is greeted with some relief in Rome, with the Pope and the whole Church hoping that this will lead to an end to the persecution of Catholics in China. Pope Pius IX voices his dissatisfaction with the new ideology of Karl Marx, denouncing its appeal to violence. However, the general distrust of unbridled capitalism is shared by the Church hierarchy, and some purpose that Pius IX write an encyclical on Social justice, which could condemn the manifest problems of both unfettered capitalism and violent Socialism. In other news, the first cohort of local African seminarians in Lorenço Marques are ordained as priests, proving the worth of the scheme.
  • Japan: We push heavily for colonization programs the shogun making a statement saying "Any land that Japanese colonist land on shall be the property of the Shogun." The shogun puts grants for any colonist that moves to a Pacific island, and we expect and influx of over 1,500 Immigrants to Foa and Matu'anua, and 750 immigrants to leave Japan and settle Kiribati and the Marshall Islands. Grants (worth $15) will be given to 1750 colonists that settle unclaimed territory. On our mainland we continue to push for college with over 2500 students being educated across five colleges. We call to whatever investors remain in the USA, and investors in the CSA to invest in our industries (Mod response required) . Our fertilizer industry is in a boom right now, across 35 islands over 500 Japanese worker mine 35,000 tonnes of guano every half year. We sell Guano fertilizer to the Socialist chinese state at a discount ($1 per tonne). We also begin the construction of the first ammunition factory and arms factory. We make an offer to the United States to let our government run beef industry buy 32,000 Acres of land in the state of Iowa for the production of beef and offer $92,000 (two million) for the land (MOD RESPONSE NEEDED)
  • Jutland: We continue our mobilization against the German Empire. We increase our invasion force by 10,000 men which are mostly conscripts. At home due to anti-Prussian propaganda public support of the war is high. We continue to build fortifications in Saxe-Lauenburg to protect it from any possible attack. The colony of Ny Kiel expands 12 px inward and 7 px north upward along the coast. The Danish Congo Company a company run and funded by the government is allowed to conduct private rule over the Congo in order to turn a profit on the colony. The company is headed by the King. We begin to invest in infrastructure in Ny Kiel and the same occurs on Bali. We begin to sponsor tourism on Bali to also turn a profit on it and open up resorts. Our navy increases by 20 ships, four iron-clad battleships and one warship. Our blockade of Germany continues. We ask the Danish in Pomerania and Oldenburg to rebel against the German overlords and retake back their lands sprouting nationalism Mod response. We begin to instigate rebels in Norway who want to break away from Sweden and rejoin Jutland as an autonomous state of Jutland Mod response.
    • MOD: Rebel activity begins to spread in the southwestern part of Norway.

1876

Japan and Korea, now on equal footing, have emerged to dominate the Asian continent as the primary regional powers, with China having lost its influence due to the volatility of its government in the years following the initial overthrow of the Qing dynasty.

Fighting in North America ceases temporarily as peace negotiations begin in Harrisburg. However, unexpected unrest erupts in the Confederate States as enslaved African-Americans, especially newly so following Confederate occupation of former Union States, begin to cause trouble. Protests in Confederate-occupied US cities against the reinstatement of slavery, especially among the common non-landowning populace, become commonplace.

After years of subjugation at the hands of the Chinese, Tibet seizes the opportunity presented by the chaos in China and declares its independence. The Dalai Lama is the head of state, though the position is vacant following the mysterious death of the 12th Dalai Lama aged only 18 last year. Thus, a regency council formed by Buddhist monks rules in the Dalai Lama's stead.


  • Westralia: The Royal entourage arrives in Amsterdam on January 5th, and is accompanied by a regiment of the Royal Guard. The family then travels to the Royal Palace of Amsterdam to meet the King's parents, the King and Queen of the Netherlands, and his brother, Prince William; his sister-in-law, Grand Duchess Maria; and the couple's new twins — King Alexander's and Queen Mary's first nephews, and Prince Theodore and Princess Georgia's first cousins. We recognise the territorial sovereignty of the new State of Tibet, though at this moment we wish to postpone the establishment of an embassy in Lhasa. Integration of Hong Kong into our territories is going well, with all remaining Britons in Hong Kong being granted Westralian citizenship and all law-abiding Britons also released from Chinese prisons. Chinese people living in Hong Kong are also offered citizenship, with promises of a better life and a better standard of living than in China.
  • Hawaii: Our military and infrastructure improve. Modernization of Honolulu continues, and our settlements grow. Our new settlement on Johnston Atoll is going well, incorporated into the Oahu Province. We continue to invest in our other industries. We invite Pacific nations, particularly Honolulu Pact members, to establish embassies in Honolulu. In a large celebration, Prince Kamehameha VI turns ten.
    • Siamese Diplomacy: Rama V agrees to establish an embassy in Honolulu.
      • Bora Bora Diplomacy: We agree and offer Siam a place in the Honolulu Pact.
  • Guiana Federation: Infrastructure and economy still improves, as military once again recruits more troops slightly. Georgetown looks to expect more buildings coming in to increase slight population in Guiana Federation. In other news, the supplies looks to improve as well, since that it should be in a good status, as it seems that it could progress sometime. The ports still build more ships in the coast of Guiana Federation. There will be more to come but as it looks that possibly the roads are continuing to build in some various towns.
  • Peru: We march 20,000 troops to Quito and send another 5000 to the rest of Ecuador. We also ask France for help. We also keep modernising. We also increase our army from 30,000 to 32,000.
  • Bora Bora: In order to prevent European Pacific domination we annex the Cook Islands. We also expand our quarry and start a stone fortress on Bora Bora for royal and military purposes. We start testing new rifle designs.
    • Japanese Diplomacy: We warn Bora Bora of the consequences of their claims overlapping with ours saying we have had interest in the cook islands since 1874 and have claimed Manihiki off the Cook Islands for use of guano mining.
    • Hawaiian Diplomacy: We ask that Bora Bora and Japan find a peaceful solution to the Cook Islands dispute, to prevent any military intervention between Japan and the Honolulu Pact.
    • Japanese Diplomacy: We would be willing to compromise and divide control of the Cook Islands.
    • Bora Bora Diplomacy: We sincerely apologise and offer to purchase the islands for $10,000. We also state that we will allow Japan to use the islands if they join the Honolulu Pact.
  • Japan: Immigration to Foa and Matu'uanua has reached a high. 500 immigrants move to Foa and over 1,500 move to Matu'anua. The governments investment into pineapples slows at an extreme rate, only investing 25% what it originally invested just to keep the industry maintained. The land grants the government has given out has exceeded $150 with over ten families of at least five individuals move to Vanua Lava of the Banks Islands group. The government gives the families each 20 acres of land to begin farming coffee and bananas. As a push for more immigrants to move to the island we will grant any new families that move 15 acres of land until a total of 7440 acres has been given away. The government push for college has gone well, with an overcrowding in the five western colleges 3,000 people try to squeeze in. The government begins production of five more colleges which should be completely complete by 1877 but should be able to begin class at the start of the new semester at the middle of the year. The ammunition and gun factories have been completed after investors from the CSA and the USA invested in them. The Fertilizer industry is in a boom with over 150,000 tonnes of Guano fertilizer being produced every half year. To increase production of guano the government claims more islands under the Guano Colonies act claiming some islands in the Caroline Islands (See Guano Colonies Act). We immediately lease the land to the Japanese Guano Company and give them subsidies on guano mining. We increase our production of rice. After capturing Taipei from China we begin trying to rebuild the island and set up a local puppet government until the government of japan can take full control. In order to gain more wealth and land we land 55,000 of the 70,000 that invaded Taipei onto the island of Chongming (Algorithm Needed). We also set a large venture to loot Chinese villages and cities along the Yaghtze river. We send 25 warships and 75,000 people up the river to loot local villages and cities and bring the wealth back to Taipei (Algorithm needed).
    • Hawaiian Diplomacy: We wish to invest in your coffee industry.
  • Patagonia: Unlike his predecessor, Jean I want to hold the power in the kingdom and is reticent to allow too much liberty from von Kermann. A known conservative, Jean rapidly conflicts with the favorite of Antoine I, and by March he finally force von Kermann to resign. To replace him, he chose his brother-in-law Pierre-Pascal Montessier, son of the Marshal Vincent Montessier (who is the King's father-in-law). However, the King doesn't intend to share his power with his new Secretary of State, and begin his reign by ordering a large work to modernize both the infrastructures and the army, working with the local industries to produce better weaponry and buildings. Many liberals fear the reign of this new king and the power of the Montessier over him. 
  • South German Empire: With the majority of the population of the Empire now being Protestants, Emperor Joseph I declares all Protestants to be equal in every way with the Catholics, granting them equal rights. With the threat of Socialism at our doorstep, with Alfred Krupp getting more and more influence at the Emperor's court, we adopt Krupp paternalist strategy as a government policy to counter this threat, providing Social policies, like colonies(Workers housing) with parks, schools, recreation grounds, benefit scheme insuring the men and their families in case of illness or death, retirement funds, following the great example of Krupp industries, although is done gradually with what excess of funds we got, however the future for the common men and women now seems promising. Proclaimations are issued by the Emperor, that as soon as the war is over and Germany is unified, more funds will be available for this grand project, easing the burden of the commoners. Steyr-Daimler-Puch has grown immensely, due to our huge orders of rifles and other weapons and continues to be an innovative weapons manufacturer, while supplying many of our needs in military equipment and ammo. Krupp and Steyr-Daimler-Puch are competing for government contracts for war material, which augment their growth and quality. Development of our nation continues, improving our infrastructure and our industry. We continue centralizing the South German Empire.
    • South German Empire Diplomacy: Now that the Northern Emperor has run away from his Empire, we offer to the Monarchists in Northern Germany shall they accept Emperor Franz Joseph I as their rightful Emperor, we shall provide them with any aid required and assist them with our military as there is a far more serious threat now, Socialism and we should stop fighting each other and focus on our common enemy. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: We continue expanding our economy, and industrialize more. We expand 10 px into Africa northward and 10 px into Borneo on the eastern coast. We continue turning Zanzibar into our colony. We begin integrating Flanders into our country after the war. We support the Jutlander blockade against North Germany, but do not officially join the war. We condemn the Hamburg Commune. We continue the invasion of Hainan. We announce the birth of the royal twins, Prince Maurits and Prince Alexander.
  • United States of Colombia (OOC - I have been on a six-day vacation, I am back): Through 1874-1876, Francisco Bolivar Rey serves his very active term as President. President Rey establishes even closer relations with Ecuador and Venezuela, sponsoring Unionista marches and liberalism in all three of the states. He outlined a larger political agenda for the Liberal party, but did not get much of it accomplished. In the 1876 election, Enrique Nel Mallarino, Rey's right-hand-man, is elected with a large majority due to endorsements from Rey and most of the Liberal party. Mallarino is mostly known as a continuation of Rey, and still pursues Rey's agenda.
    • Colombian to Peruvian Diplomacy: President Mallarino demands the withdrawal of Peruvian troops in Ecuador with status quo ante bellum. He also states that if this demand is met that friendly relations can be established between the democracies of Colombian and Peru including a trade agreement and maybe more in the future. He says if this demand is not met then Colombia will act on its defensive pact with Ecuador stated in the Treaty of Medellin.
    • Peruvian Diplomacy: We will withdraw if we can get the Galapagos Islands and an alliance with Colombia and Ecuador against any attackers.
    • Colombian to South German Diplomacy: President Mallarino sends an envoy to Europe to discuss a trade agreement and the sending of German military advisers to Colombia.
    • Colombian to Ecuador Diplomacy: Before the liberal José Javier Eguiguren leaves the office in Ecuador, Mallarino discusses the unification between Colombia and Ecuador. Mallarino states that if the unification is granted, Eguiguren would serve as a provisional Vice President, the Colombian government would become the provisional government between the two nations, but a new constitution for the states would be promised. He stresses that Ecuadorian people need this to gain protection against foreign aggressors (like Peru) and (Affinity and Sphere of Influence are used from my Culture primary focus). [Rey also sponsored many marches in Ecuador] {to form Gran Colombia} (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
    • Colombian to Venezuelan Diplomacy: With the Liberal Antonio Blanco still in power, Mallarino suggests a unification between Colombia and Venezuela. If this unification is granted (and Ecuador accepts as well), a two-year triumvirate government under the Colombian system would be established, and a new constitution promised by the end of the two years. [Rey sponsored many marches in Venezuela, and I also use my Affinity and Sphere of Influence are used from my Culture primary focus). {to form Gran Colombia} (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
    • Venezuela (MOD): We will not take unite to Colombia without reason. There is a reason we are independent. ~AM
    • South German Diplomacy: We sign a trade agreement with Columbia and send the military advisers requested.
    • Ecuador (MOD): We agree to unify with Columbia, because of the threat presented by Peru.
    • French Diplomacy: After the successful construction of the Suez Canal, French investors are considering building a Canal linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans at Panama. The French government wishes to know if Colombia is willing to discuss some terms for the French to construct it.
  • Confederate States of America: With the Treaty of Harrisburg signed, the Confederacy rejoices at our victory, and immediately recognizes the independence of Quebec, establishing an embassy there. Augustus Hill Garland uses the victory in two ways: First, he tries to increase the chances of a member of his own party, the Democratic Party, and second by trying to further industrialize the country. We place our primary focus on commerce, and our secondary focus on Culture. The city of Augusta will be ready to be the capital starting next year, when the new congress comes into session. Garland cuts some funding to the navy, and enacts an increase in the pay of soldiers and veterans. However, in order to ensure that rebellion does not occur in our new states, Garland appoints military leaders as territorial governors, and deploys a total of 30,000 troops to the territories in the West, 2,500 of which are stationed in San FranciscoGarland passes the Trans-Confederate Railway Act of 1876, which will have the first ever railway fully in the Confederacy that runs from coast to coast, going from Charleston to San Francisco via Augusta, Atlanta, Memphis, Kansas City, and Denver. Garland increases tariffs, and passes the Special Schooling Act, granting money to construct a school for the blind and the deaf for the biggest city in each state. Kansas applies for statehood as a slave state (3000 troops stationed there). For the upcoming election, there are three major parties. The Republican Party nominates Francis Harrison Pierpont for President and Aaron A. Sargent for Vice President. The Democratic Party nominates Robert M.T. Hunter for President, and John C. Brown for Vice President. The Confederate Party nominates Zebulon B. Vance for President and Isham G. Harris is his running mate. Garland endorses Hunter, and Pierpont receives death threats from the Ku Klux Klan. In an effort to bring the Confederacy together, Garland tries to slowly limit the power of the KKK, in order to have decreased violence in the newly acquired territory.
    • Hawaiian Diplomacy: We ask that the CSA open up the port of San Francisco for trade.
    • MOD (OOC): The Treaty of Harrisburg needs to be revised NOW! ~AM
  • Great Korean Empire: The Korean army continues territorial expansion in Manchuria, sending an additional five thousand troops to replace any casualties. Korean soldiers are ordered to loot Chinese industrial centres, sending any usable physical capital (i.e., industrial machinery, precious metals) to Korea to accelerate development. In occupied territories, enforced Korean assimilation programs begin to reduce opposition to future annexation as dependencies. The industrial output and the amount of essential infrastructure – such as paved roads, railway, canals, factories, schools, libraries, and residential buildings, continues to increase exponentially. Westernisation continues, with Western attire and architecture becoming more and more common.
  • France: The Imperial Palace announces the second son of the Imperial couple has been born, Guillaume Victor Emmanuel Ferdinand Napoleon Henri Bonaparte, second in line to the throne, has been born in 29th March of this year. The Emperor invited the King of the Netherlands and the Emperor of South Germany to become his godfathers. Also, an formal embassy is established in Quebec City, celebrating what is seem as a certain independence. In a (SECRET) letter to his relative, King of the Quebecois, Napoleon IV has stated his worry for the new nation to be surrounded by anglophone countries, and has offered an protectorate status to the nation, similar to the one the Mexican Empire has. The Parliament stated, however, it will only accept that status if the Quebecois Parliament and King accept it. (SECRET END/MOD RESPONSE). Industries are booming in the nation, as the local factories are supplying several soldiers of the French Empire oversees, the Egyptian rebels and the Quebecois army. The new ships commissioned enter active service, and the heavy and light ships that were replaced are officially retired. If any allied nation wishes to buy them, state soon or they will be scraped. The French army numbers start slowly to reach the 600,000 regular soldiers, and the war effort in China keeps going, although the government wishes the coalition to hear the Chinese peace offers. An journalist expedition is sent to China, and they keep an government view of the war, detailing the Chinese massacres of Europeans and avoiding any mentioning of the scorched earth tactics used by the military. The Parliament has approved a permanent increase in navy ships, commissioning some heavy and light ships to be added to the numbers. Also the plebiscite in Wallonia seems to be going well, despite the war-like situation, several eligible voting citizens are going to the voting stations to state their wishes for the future of the region, although less than few are in favour of a return of the Belgium King, seemed as a traitor that fled for his life to Africa. The Minister of Foreign Affairs has (SECRETLY) asked all members of the Anti-Ottoman Pact (Russia, Greece, South Germany, France and Italy) to meet in Athens to discuss what action is to be taken against the Ottomans. The Parliament has approved a law establishing mandatory basic education to be established across the nation, yet it still needs to receive the Imperial Seal.
    • South African Dip: South Africa would like to buy ships from France.

1876.5

Protests in former US cities and states now occupied by the Confederacy intensify, as the non-landowning population condemn the reinstatement of slavery as a violation of their right to equality, as well as the appointment of soldiers as governors, practically creating a military junta.

The Chinese Socialist government reiterates its call for a "democratic peace", offering the withdrawal of anti-Christian laws and the allowance of Europeans to return to China.

Plebiscite results for Wallonia are 39% in favor of Autonomous Province, 27% in favor of Regular Province, 18% Independent in Personal Union and 16% Protectorate with a Different King.


  • Westralia: (SECRET) On the condition that all persecution of Christians cease, we are willing to end conflict with China and withdraw from mainland China. (MOD RESPONSE REQUIRED) However, occupation of Hong Kong will continue. (SECRET END) The Royal Family, most of them having met their Dutch counterparts (and extended family) for the first time, arrive home after a month's stay in the Netherlands. The rail line from Adelaide is finally complete, and so is Perth Central Station, which is also to be the hub for our nationwide rail network. The Gold Rush continues, which helps our economy grow and to fill the state treasury, strengthening our currency. The Sovereign is now worth about three Pounds Sterling.
    • China (MOD): Agrees to end persecution of Christians but adamantly refuses to give up Hong Kong.
    • OCTMOD: No way Westralia can occupy Hong Kong considering in modern day Hong Kong has 3x the pop of Western Australia.
    • Westralia OOC: Indeed, in modern times the populations of Western Australia and Hong Kong are incomparable. However, you cannot use this data to disallow Westralia's occupation of Hong Kong ATL in the 19th century. Only use stats from the current in-game time period, please. In 1876, the population of Hong Kong was about 139,100. The current Westralian population ATL is over 500,000. Please get your facts straight before doing any moderating. Thanks.
    • WRTOMOD: I also think that Westalia population is too much, maybe cut it down by half...
    • Westralia OOC: Okay, I should probably explain how my population got to 500,000. Many citizens have connections to the military. The 40 thousand or so British soldiers stationed in Westralia at the time of its independence were offered better pay and a better standard of living than if they returned to the collapsing British Empire. The Government also offered to sponsor the immigration to Westralia of their families, in order to eliminate any reason for them to return to Britain, and thus create Westralia's military force. Assuming about 30,000 of these soldiers chose to stay, and each soldier had a family of four (including himself), that would make the population jump by 120,000. Other population expansion initiatives include the Korean immigration initiative (say about another 50,000 people) from early this decade, and the Gold Rush also contributed greatly (290,000 people immigrated to Victoria during the Victorian gold rush. Seeing as WA had a far greater reserve of minerals and precious natural resources, logically more people would have come). Therefore, this would add up to more than 500,000, adding to the original population of around 20,000 in 1869.
    • WRTOMOD: OK, seems legit considering how much San Francisco pop grew after the California gold rush.
    • OCTMOD: I used modern figures considering that I had to go to school and I didn't have time to do the research for historical figures. I think Westralia should split Hong Kong with Austrialia as Victor recommended.
    • France OOC: I haven't said that I recommended it, I just mentioned what Westralia said it would do, in the claim section of the Eurasian Economical Alliance.
    • OCTMOD: To be perfectly honest, there is no way that any nation can have its population increase by 25 times in a matter of eight years without facing negative consequences. I also think that your calculation of the soldiers is extremely far off considering that most soldiers in the British army were unmarried bachelors. There is offically no way that Westralia could increase by 25 times without having widespread famine. Therefore Tim, because of the size of your population it is impossible for you to control Hong Kong.
    • Westralia OOC: Okay, first of all, I never said all these soldiers were married. I just stated the assumption that each soldier had a family of three or four, be it parents, siblings, etc. So that point is not entirely correct. Anyway, I have been working in the background to increase agricultural production, and I greatly encouraged farming since earlier in the decade, and farming has grown with the population. Expansion of infrastructure was also accelerated to provide accommodation for the new population.
    • Not Mod: So just re: British troops in Western Australia, in my humble opinion I, too, think 40,000 is a bit off. In 1869, there was one British regiment stationed in Australia, and that was split between both the East and West coasts. Presumably ATL, there was some difference, but given the small level of protection the UK gave the whole continent OTL, 40,000 seems like a lot to put into WA alone (especially considering that, as far as I am aware, a regiment around that time comprised of roughly 4000 men. So even if you had a whole regiment in WA, and each man brought over three relatives, that's still only 16,000). The gold rush is much more likely to have brought in an influx of people, the OTL WA gold rushes pretty much doubled the population from 49,000 in 1891 to 184,000 in 1900. However, you have to remember that the WA government had to invest in large schemes like the Goldfields Irrigation Scheme (a massive pipeline out into the desert goldfields) to sustain the population, given that WA's goldfields are effectively in the desert. I'm not sure if technologically such a feat would be possible twenty odd years before. Anyway, that's just my opinion, and I'm not a mod so yeah Callumthered (talk) 00:13, April 29, 2016 (UTC)
    • OCTMOD: No matter what you do, 25 times in eight years is still ASB, and Westralia could never control Hong Kong. No matter what you do you couldn't even house those people.
    • Westralia OOC: The 40,000 soldiers were stationed in WA when I was playing as Britain. No one disputed that, so it's going to stand. On a side note, Oct, I suspect you are being biased. You did not at all throw Japan's just-as-ASB stuff (New St Petersburg and pineapple companies, total BS) out the window like you have for my population. So technically, you're not really in a position to accuse me of being biased either in my mod responses.
    • Korea OOC: I do think he is biased towards Nlen. But apart from his modding in the Asia–Pacific region (he lacks enough knowledge to make assumptions), Oct is a pretty okay mod once you look past his blunt way of doing things.
    • Korea OOC: I think 500,000 people is too high. A number between 200,000 to 300,000 people is a more plausible figure (if you account the growth rates of other small, immigration-dependent countries such as Qatar).
    • Westralia OOC Fine, I will drop to 300,000 due to popular demand. But no more than that. I would still be able to control Hong Kong given the circumstances though. I still have at least double the population of Hong Kong, and a more stable political and economic situation.
    • Korea OOC: I agree that Westralia could occupy Hong Kong, but not in such a short span of time. Maybe three or four turns depending on the political and economic situation of China.
  • Emirate of Afghanistan: The nation begins to work on industries. The country begins looking for any nations that are going to help them. Farmers are encouraged to grow wheat but most of them grow opium and sell it to neighboring countries. Roads are built but most are dirt roads. We would like to open talks with the Indian Empire. The idea of national unity begins to rise in cities, as the national army begins to work on arming with whatever weapons they have. After a heated debate in Kabul the army begins to mobilize and invade China due to fear of rebels in Nanking the invasion begins in Kashgar (10,000 troops). The army is ordered to take Kashgar and to hold it and not to move on. People are encouraged to join the army and people under 15 must have parent's permission to join. Some opium fields are burned for wheat or cattle to feed the army and people.
    • Ansar Al Deeen: (Afghanistan spies) The group of spies are sent to India to rally up Muslims in an idea of Muslim Unity with Afghanistan. The group is allowed to set up camps in Afghanistan and train anyone that wants to join. The group mostly works in poor areas telling young people about the Munguals and how they can recreate them and bring pride to Muslims in India once again.
  • Hawaii: Our military and infrastructure improve. Modernization of Honolulu continues, and our settlements grow. The Honolulu Pact seeks endorsement from a regional or great power, or a main Pacific power like KoreaJapanWestralia, or Australia. We continue to invest in our guava, fishing, pearl, and tourism industries.
    • Hawaiian Diplomacy: We encourage Bora Bora and Japan to negotiate a split in control of the Cook Islands.
    • Japan Diplomacy: We will endorse this program for one year until renewing the endorsement.
    • Bora Bora Diplomacy: We offer to buy the Cook Islands for $10,000, and state that if Japan joins the Honolulu Pact they may continue to operate there.
    • Japan Diplomacy: We will let you operate there but we will keep our claims. We also only endorse the Honolulu Pact but shall remain out of it.
    • Hawaiian Diplomacy: We thank Japan for their endorsement and both nations for settling their differences.
  • New Bruxelles: After an incident where Marie Henriette, King Leopold II's wife, and Queen of Belgium, was nearly killed in an incident involving several elephants, the King orders that the majority of the creatures be ushered into farms, zoos, etc. to be watched or used to harvest ivory. Herds on the edges of the country's borders are left alone. New Bruxelles now controls a size of land roughly the size of Belgium prior to being lost. At ports along the coast, many trading and military ships are being constructed after the inability to defend against the blockades in the past war. Industrialization continues in many of the larger cities, as well as defenses and roads. Our territory is expanded by 5 px. We offer to begin trading with our previous trading partners, as we have now recovered enough to do so.
    • New Bruxelles Diplomacy: We offer to trade with Hawaii, the Toucouleur Empire, and the British Empire.
    • Hawaiian Diplomacy: We agree to resume trade, giving hope to our declining pineapple industry.
  • North German Empire: The Commitee of Safety, being the ruling government of the Empire, continues the war against the South and Jutland, while the Commune of Hamburg attempts a truce with everyone except the South to focus on snuffing out the Committee. Meanwhile, the Commune enacted an order suspending punitive disciplinary action by all North German officers in an attempt to cripple the Committee's forces. Some battleships later defected to the Commune; one of them was the KMS Kaiser Franz, whose crew rose up and slew their commanding officers.
  • Patagonia: King Jean begin to work on his plans to improve the army and the infrastructures. New roads are build, as well as new towns to help the growing population. A new recrutement is put into place to reenforce the army. The king also frequently organize celebration in his palace for the nobility. With his new Secretary of State, he write new laws that protect the nobility and affirm their rights over the "lowborns".

He wishes for the unification of Germany under Prussian leadership, as he believes that only the liberalism he wanted to bring to Prussia could bring power to the people, and that acceptance of South Germany's offer would rip all potential power away from him and thus prevent him from ever making changes to the way Germany is ruled.
    • South German Diplomacy: Emperor Franz Joseph I assures that his liberal intentions are for the good of the people of Germany and proposes to make him President of a unified Germany, while gradually reforming the unified Germany into a constitutional monarchy. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
    • MOD: Given further clarification of the offer, Frederick III accepts, and presents the South German Emperor with a draft for the Imperial Constitution of a newly unified Germany. He, his wife and children begin the journey home to Berlin, leaving behind his father, Wilhelm I, who refuses to return to an Austrian-dominated Germany. Frederick III publicly declares his support for the anti-Communist and anti-Committee movement brewing within North Germany, which has become known as the White Army.
    • South German Diplomacy: Emperor Franz Joseph I congratulates King Frederick III on his creation of the draft for the Imperial Constitution of a newly unified Germany. He also asks King Frederick III for a marriage between our great houses as to further strengthen German unity, as well as become an example for good relationships to come between people of Protestant and Catholic beliefs. We ask the White Army and the Committee of Safety to come to the negotiation table, in order to combine our strength to bring the Commie threat advances to a halt. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
    • MOD: Frederick III doesn't want to get too cuddly with the Habsburgs just yet, and thus politely declines at this time.
  • United States of Gran Colombia: With the unification of Colombia and Ecuador, a provisional government was quickly established under the Colombian Constitution with Mallarino being President and Eguiguren becoming the new position of Vice President. The two established a committee to write a new liberal constitution and establish a new government, which was mainly led by Francisco Bolivar Rey. On July 24, the Committee had written a new constitution along with a government structure that was slightly more centralized and had an expanded bureaucracy. Sixteen states were established inside the new republic. The Committee held elections for the government positions in that July and the new officials were put into office on August 1. Francisco Bolivar Rey became the First President of Gran Colombia with a large majority. For his first Vice President he selected Enrique Mallarino and for Secretary of State (Head of Cabinet) he selected the Ecuadorian politician Vicente Salazar. President Rey decided to keep friendly relations with Venezuela despite their denial for unification. Rey quickly puts into effect a strong Bill of Rights throughout the nation along with the new constitution. With the combination of the Colombian and Ecuadorian armies, the army expands to the size of 100,000 with a majority of them in reserves. Friendly relations are established with South Germany after their army advisors arrive and a trade deal is established. With the weakness of the United States, Gran Colombia seizes the Panama Railway from American investors and other big American enterprises in Gran Colombia to lessen American influence over the region.
    • Gran Colombia to Peru Diplomacy: As you are now occupying de facto Gran Colombia, we demand that you leave with status quo ante bellum (white peace). If accepted, friendly relations can be established, but if declined the Gran Colombian army will be mobilized and an invasion ensued.
    • Peru: We accept your request now but I also ask if I could buy some of the Galapagos Islands.
    • Gran Colombia to France, South German and Dutch Diplomacy: Colombia is willing to negotiate a European-sponsored canal in the Treaty of Panama City.
      • Patagonian Dip: King Jean I encourages the European leaders not to sign the Treaty of Panama City.

  • Bora Bora: We increase military spending. We also offer Japan another deal regarding the Cook Islands using our claims regarding the Kingdom of Rarotonga's unification with Bora Bora.

  • Toucouleur Empire: We continue to support the kingdom of New Brussels by maintaining the garrison and we continue to build the fortification for the city. We continue to place money into the infrastructure, economy, industry and military of our nation. We extend the age for education to five-to-eight as teachers have been complaining that they are not given the necessary time to be able to teach these children. We build fortifications around our other cities as we try to make sure our nation does not fall to the Europeans. We accept Belgium's trade. We send troops and an offer for an alliance to the nation of Cayor as it holds bitter grudges against the Europeans as they conquered them and they are in a key position to either vassalize them or form an alliance. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
    • Cayor (MOD): We decline seeing the aggressive stance of Toucouleur Empire.
  • Guiana Federation: We continue to improve economy and military. The roads looks to be almost finished in various cities. Although Georgetown is slightly continuing to grow, but most of that is progressing. More to come.
  • In Bolivia, General Mariano Valencia's attack on Indian communal land rights triggered a massive backlash as thousands of Quechua and Aymara origin march on La Paz, besieging the General in his palace. Unconcerned, he calls in his troops - only, to his terror, for their commander, Adolfo Ballivian, to ally with the peasants in a bid for power. The mutinous general blasts the palace open with artillery and the government is swiftly toppled. In a bid to consolidate Indian support, Ballivian promptly proclaims himself Tupac Amaru III, the descendent of the old Inca rulers and the anti-Spanish rebel of the 18th century, and renames the country Qullasuyu, the Quechua name. He also launches a massive programme of confiscation of the Creole elites' land, returning it to the peasants (and keeping a sizeable amount for himself). Ballivian, although a monolingual Spanish-speaker himself, proclaims Quechua the national language. The new regime is eager to redress the repeated Peruvian invasions of Bolivia and rejects the Peruvian proposal of unification. Ballvian proclaims "a day of reckoning is coming for the Creole elites of Lima, and it comes swiftly. They will reap the whirlwind of two centuries of brutality and exploitation of their own and our people. I spit on their treaty!"
    • Qullasuyu/Bolivia offers Gran Colombia an alliance.
    • South German Diplomacy: We offer to arm the newly established nation with Werndl–Holub rifles, Krupp C64 and C67 artilery, Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns and military advisors to instruct your military on how to use them.
    • Qullasuyu profoundly thanks South Germany and offers exclusive rights to oil exploration in La Paz Province, where reports have come to light of lucrative fields, by way of thanks.
    • South German Diplomacy: Thanks the Qullasuyu government for the exclusive rights granted to oil exploration in La Pas Province and wishes well on the Quechua and Aymara people on their quest for liberation of their ancestral lands from the Creole elites, while promises to give any further aid needed by Quallasuyu to succeed on their rightful and noble cause.
  • Indian Empire: Military offensives in China halt. India assumes control of Tibet and begins to withdraw military personnel from the area (MOD RESPONSE REQUIRED). 150,000 men will remain for defensive and policing purposes whilst control of the region is transferred to the Central Government.
    • China (MOD): Is willing to accept a truce. 
  • Kingdom of Greece: We extend our thanks to every ally in the Anti Ottoman Alliance. King George has announced his intent to upgrade the Navy. Military modernization is going as planned. We request the rights to lincense produce the most advanced weapons, to counter the Ottoman Empire. Greece is warning fellow European nations that the Ottoman Empire is an unreliable ally, and will eventually be defeated. If you are interested in arming Greece, please respond with diplomacy.
  • France: Napoleon IV, after being reached by members of the Orleanist and the Legitimist causes, decided to grant nobility titles to the claimed "kings" if they agree to renounce to the throne of France while an Bonaparte is its ruler. If a republic takes place, they will be in their right to claim the throne. The Bourbon claimant would be granted the title of Prince of Occitania, which would extend over all of the Mediterranean coast of France, with capital at Marseille. The Órleans claimant would be granted the title of Prince of Brittany, which would extend over Brittany region, with capital at Rennes. These titles wouldn't grant them any command over the regions, only a financial pension and permission to build a palace in the region, besides being granted a seat in the Senate like the heir to the throne of the Empire and to use the Imperial Palaces, although not permenantly. The heir to the throne would also receive a region, being named Prince of BurgundyBurgundy would have its capital in Lyon. The Emperor's current second son, born earlier this year, will be granted the title of Prince of NormandyNormandy would have its capital in Caen. Empress Eugénie went on an official visit to Quebec, requesting a response to the offer Napoleon IV made to the nation earlier (MOD RESPONSE REQUIRED to a past turn request). French industry keeps booming due to the recent conflicts, and keeps suppling the soldiers through the fronts. The army regular numbers keep getting closer to the 600,000 target. The Parliament has approved selling the old ships to South Africa, and has authorized an endeavour of a private company to start settling in areas of South Africa, although on the condition such settlers will prioritize French colonies. The marshals in charge of the war in China, under advise of the Cabinet, has shown his intentions to sign a truce with the Chinese government, although only officialize a peace after the Coalition decides to. (MOD RESPONSE). Celebrations - for the result of the plebiscite is in place, and Napoleon IV himself makes a tour over Wallonia to meet his new subjects.
    • Toucouleur Empire Dip: We would like it if France would not expand into our territory and our sphere of influence and we would also like to purchase your colonies in Senegal with pure gold.
    • Quebec (MOD): Both the King and the parliament reluctantly agree to become a French protectorate because they are surrounded by anglophone neighboors.
    • China (MOD): Agrees to the truce offer made by France.
  • Union of Jutland: We continue our invasion of Northern Germany and the blockade we hope to choke any hopes of survival and destroy the morale of the German people. In Congo the company rule begins to work effcetively recruiting Congoese to work in various different resource areas. We continue the expansion of the Congo colony expanding 10 px inward and 2 px north. We begin to start expanding into the Kingdom of Kongo. At home conscription continues with anti-Prussian propaganda being spread to keep public support of the war. A reserve of 20,000 men is created with the conscripts. We continue building the defenses of Saxe-Lauenburg with more factories being built. We increase our navy by one warship, six battleships and 15 ships. We continue to fund the activities of Rebels in Norway secretly sending them weapons to fight against the Swedes and rejoin Jutland. In Bali and Iceland infrastructure is improved. Bali begins to undergo a transformation into an island with many luxurious resorts.

The US is facing crippling losses, while the Coalition advances into Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maine. CSA measures start to pay off as tensions decrease in the occupied territories but only by a little, as the non-landowning population is especially angry with the reinstatement of slavery and the "military junta".

Quechua and Aymara in Peru, seeing the toppling of the oppressive Bolivian regime and the establishment of a Native government, leads to huge widespread uprisings against the Creole elite and the Peruvian oppressive regime, calling their brothers in Bolivia to support them, offering to crown Tupac Amaru III as their King, having a very high opinion of him for his bravery, courage and determination to liberate the Quechua and Aymara people.

Creole and White people in Bolivia either flee the country to nearby countries or form resistance groups which cooperate and use guerrilla warfare against the Qullasuyu regime. Although many people who fled the country create resistance groups and harass the Qullasuyu troops near the nation's borders.

Muslim Unity, funded by Afghanistan, starts to gain traction amongst Muslim in India. Indian government tries to suppress this leading to heated debates in the Indian parliament. Some Hindu jingoists call for retaliation against Afghanistan, after the truth surfaces, although the Indian government is far from declaring war, border controls become stricter.

Moderator Note: Seriously, kings and heads of state attending events on a differnt continent is implausible considering that from New York to London it took a week, so there and back while staying a week would be three weeks away from your country, and with that happening two to three times a year that's like one-sixth of the year away from home. https://people.hofstra.edu/geotrans/eng/ch3en/conc3en/linertransatlantic.html

Well, considering the turn lasts six months, it's safe to assume that the invitation was sent out months beforehand. ~Tim


  • Westralia: Prince Theodore on his birthday, now aged 6, is invested as the inaugural Prince of Swan. We invite foreign dignitaries to attend the ceremony. There is nationwide celebration as the ceremony takes place in Perth. A new warship has been completed for the occasion, the SMS Theodore, and is launched during the ceremony. Our tenuous hold on Hong Kong is strengthening as time goes on, and two warships are sent to the new territory to defend it from the Chinese.
    • Korean Dip: The Korean ambassador to Westralia accepts the invitation to attend the sixth birthday of Crown Prince Theodore in place of the Emperor and the Imperial Family due to their busy schedules.
    • Second Texan Republic Texas accepts the invitation and sends an ambassador to the ceremony taking place in Westralia.
    • Patagonian Dip: King Jean I send his Secretary of State, Pierre-Pascal Montessier, to the ceremony.
    • South German Diplomacy: A diplomatic envoy is made up of high ranked nobles with ties to the royal family is dispatched to attend the ceremony and to congratulate Prince Theodore on his inaugural as Prince of Swan.
    • Hawaiian Diplomacy: The royal family shall attend.
    • French Diplomacy: The local ambassador shall attend in the name of His Imperial Majesty.
  • Second Texan Republic With a population of around 900,000, we begin with recruiting 25,000 troops, and begin to send out 10,000 settlers out to our western territories to begin development of new cities and mines. We request an alliance with the Confederate States of America to gain protection for our larger neighbor to the north. We also make a law which taxes citizens higher whom don't have at least one slave under there ownership, then ones who do. This is to increase the slave trade and so anyone who supports the idea of having slavery illegal will either be taxed more, or will be forced to leave Texas.
    • Japan OOC: Texas doesn't have anywhere near seven million people in 1877.
    • South German Diplomacy: We offer to arm the newly established nation with Werndl–Holub rifles, Krupp C64 and C67 artilery, Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns and military advisors to instruct your military on how to use them.
    • Second Texan Republic: Texas accepts the south German's military offer, and I could cut the population down to three million, if that would be better.
    • MOD: Texas has more like 1.25 million population in OTL and I would say considerably less in ATL.
    • Second Texan Republic: I'll change it to 900,000.
  • Great Korean Empire: Five thousand more reinforcements are brought to the Manchurian front in order to take the inland parts of the Manchurian provinces of Jilin and Liaoning (the Liaodong Peninsula including Dalian, the areas surrounding the Yalu River, and Weihai and Yantai are already under Korean control). A Korean diplomat is sent to Qingdao (MOD RESPONSE), telling them to formally recognise Korean sovereignty over the Liaodong Peninsula and the cities of Yantai and Weihai in exchange for peace. The rest of occupied territories will be given back to China. The last amounts of usable capital are sent to Korea, further stabilising the economy and accelerating development. The industrial output and the amount of essential infrastructure – such as paved roads, railway, canals, factories, schools, libraries, and residential buildings, continues to increase exponentially. Westernisation under the "Western bowl, Eastern rice" policy continues, with Western attire and architecture becoming more and more common.
    • China (MOD): We refuse to give up any land.
    • Korean Dip: Well, most of the land the Koreans strive to control (except large swaths of Jilin) are already under Korean control. The Korean government are just asking whether the Chinese will recognise Korean jurisdiction over the occupied territories.
    • China (MOD): We will never agree to recognize Korean jurisdiction over these lands, however offer a truce.
    • Korean Dip: While the Korean army will withdraw from Manchuria and the Korean government will formally end the war effort, the captured territories of Liaoning, Yantai, and Weihai will be annexed as dependencies/provinces of the Great Korean Empire even with Chinese opposition.
  • Hawaii: Our military and infrastructure improve. Modernization of Honolulu continues, and our settlements grow. We begin construction of Honolulu University, which should be completed by 1883 (maybe longer or shorter?). Our goal at Johnston Atoll is to have it self-sustaining, eventually not requiring supply shipments from Kailua-Kona. Similar to the one in Honolulu, a modernization program is established in Kailua-Kona.
    • Hawaiian Diplomacy: We invite Japan to a Honolulu Pact conference in Suva to formally settle the Cook Islands dispute.
    • Japanese Diplomacy: We shall attend.
    • Bora Bora Diplomacy: We shall attend.
  • United States of Gran Colombia: With a supermajority in both the National Assembly and Senate, Rey passes the radically liberal act called Declaración del Trabajador (Declaration of the Laborer), which bans forced labor and unfair sharecropping. Some land and wealth is redistributed to the laborers (making it no longer a privilege) with the government giving small compensation to the landowners (although they are still discontent). This causes a great rise in production and economic growth throughout the country. Due to this major liberal reform, it launches the Colombian Enlightenment [Liberalism Idea: Enlightenment], with open-mindedness helping the country develop technologically, industrially, and culturally. Many new Colombian writers, mathematicians, and scientists back this enlightenment. Along with this Rey passes the first major amendment to the constitution which guarantees everyone (above eighteen)(including women) the right to vote (although it is not heavily enforced). This increases Liberal Party support among peasants and women. President Rey stays quiet on the situation in Peru and Bolivia, and states that he will not speak to the new government unless democratic elections of some sort are held.
    • After further negotiations causing fairer revisions, Francisco Bolivar Rey proposes the Treaty of Panama City to the French and German governments yet again. He also wants to discuss with Austria about purchasing more modern weapons.
    • South German Diplomacy: We offer to arm the newly established nation with Werndl–Holub rifles, Krupp C64 and C67 artilery, Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns and military advisors to instruct your military on how to use them.
    • MOD: You cannot choose two Liberalism ideas. Please read the rules carefully.
  • Guiana Federation: Economy and military continues to expand, while more military forces are recruiting in the military of Guiana Federation. Some roads are completed in some various cities, but the rail network is still unplanned. The supplies is normally in a good stand, but it looks to be in a good stable at the moment. The ports normally look to build more ships just coast of Georgetown. The modernization of the buildings is not yet ready.
  • Peru: We keep modernisings and we warn Bolivia to keep them out of our nation and to support more freedom in this world of Latin American danger. We also grow our army to 35,000. We also ask Brasil for talks regarding the aggression of Bolivia and South Germany.
  • Qullasuyu: Mobilizes its newly-armed troops against Peru in support of the rebels; the regular army and the preexisting militias of native chieftains are merged to form an enlarged and rearmed national army. The guerrillas prove laughably ineffective due to their total lack of grassroots support; the government distributes weapons to peasants in guerrilla-afflicted areas and most of them are swiftly massacred. Land redistribution continues and native communal land rights are reinforced. The government also replaces the Church-run education system with a secular one conducted in native languages, although few people are as yet educated. Two major offensives are launched; the Qullasuyu regular army advances north along the coast into Arequipa region, while a secondary force advances through the Andean passes to the north of Lake Titicaca, cutting off the passes east of Cuzco and enabling native militias to massacre the isolated Pervuains in these regions. Qullasuyu troops advance swiftly, relying on the support of locals for supplies, to seize strongpoints and overrun Peruvian troops before they can combine.
    • Qullasuyu offers substantial tin and silver concessions to any country willing to aid it in the war.
    • South German Empire Diplomacy: We send 50,000 high quality Werndl–Holub rifles, 20 Krupp C64 artillery, 20 Krupp C67 artillery, 50 Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns (with instructions to be used from short range as they are more effective that way), ammo, supplies, $1 million to finance the war, military advisors to aid them, in order to gain said concessions.
  • South German Empire: We make an official proclaimation promising to implement democracy as soon as Germany is unified, while we reveal our talks with King Frederick III. We start to make all necessary efforts to prepare the stage for the implementation of the draft for the Imperial Constitution of a newly unified Germany. New offensives are launched by our armed forces, supported by Krupp artillery, while coordinating with the White army, against the scattered and disorganized Commitee of Safety forces, causing devastating losses. However the Commune of Hamburg as well as any other Commies are attacked by the majority of our forces, believing that the Commitee of Safety can be reasoned with while the Commies are the biggest threat. With our Krupp artilery and the support of the White army we deal terrible losses at the Commies. Specifically, Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns prove once again to be lethal from short range to the Communist forces. Our troops move to secure areas behind enemy lines as we continue to advance forward, as well as to remove the Commie threat. Steyr-Daimler-Puch has grown immensely, due to our huge orders of rifles and other weapons and continues to be an innovative weapons manufacturer, while supplying many of our needs in military equipment and ammo. Krupp and Steyr-Daimler-Puch are competing for government contracts for war material, which augment their growth and quality. Development of our nation continues, improving our infrastructure and our industry. We continue centralizing the South German Empire.
    • South German Empire Diplomacy: We ask the Committee of Safety for a ceasefire to focus on the main threat (The Commies) while we promise them to implement democracy as agreed to with King Frederick III. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
    • Committee of Safety (MOD): The Committee agrees to a ceasefire.
    • South German Empire: After the Committee of Safety agreed to a ceasefire, although we keep 35% of our troops at the defense, holding the lines against the Committee, without committing hostilities. The rest of our troops are sent to deal once and for all with the Commie forces.
  • Bora Bora: We expand our research center and open it to the public creating the University of Vaitape. We offer a six month trade agreement with Siam. We annex the Austral Islands. We increase our military size placing it at 4000 personnel, 40 cannons, and 12 warships. (Dispute if necessary). To celebrate Prince Pomare's birth we fire cannons in all major settlements. We start mass producing new Pomare Rifles (similar to an 1853 Lenfield Rifle). We expect to finish production in 1880.
    • Hawaiian Diplomacy: We ask Bora Bora to leave the Tuamotu archipelago for Hawaiian annexation, as they were part of former Tahiti's sphere of influence. We also invite them to a Honolulu Pact conference in Suva to formally settle the Cook Islands dispute.
    • MOD: You simply cannot mass produce weapons because you are an underdeveloped tribal savage. While if your so called warships do not look like this and look more like this is gonna get retconned.
    • OOC Bora Bora: It's 4000 rifles in three years. Also our warships are more like large halfway modernized vakas (look it up). All of our ships and guns take several years to produce so I don't see a problem.
    • Bora Bora Diplomacy: We agree to both requests.
    • Siamese Diplomacy: Rama V agrees to the trade agreement.
    • MOD: Still you don't have the technology required to produce any rifle.
  • Confederate States of America: We continue our war with America. Since it seems as though the war has resumed, we ask all sides to consider negotiations. The current President is Robert M.T. Hunter, who prefers peace with the United States, but also supports a strong stance in the newly acquired territory. Furthermore, he diverts some federal money to the construction of schools and infrastructure. We place our primary focus on military, and our secondary focus on Commerce. Garland attempts to slightly increase the role of the federal government. Hunter moves into 61 Davis Street in the refined city of Augusta. The Civil Service Act of 1877 is passed, limiting corruption in government and requiring a Civil Service test. 
    • MOD: Why has the war resumed in the first place? The US hasn't done anything wrong. ~Tim
    • The war was resumed because certain mods (AM, not to name any names) found the Treaty of Harrisburg implausible and wouldn't allow me to complete that treaty, even if I sold the land I received to Mexico. -Vatonica
  • Emirate of Afghanistan: The nation begins to work on industries. The country begins looking for any nations that are going to help them. Farmers are encouraged to grow wheat but most of them grow opium and sell it to neighboring countries. Roads are built but most are dirt roads. We would like to open talks with the Indian Empire. The idea of national unity begins to rise in cities, as the national army begins to work on arming with whatever weapons they have. After a heated debate in Kabul the army begins to mobilize and invade China due to fear of rebels in Nanking the invasion begins in Kashgar (10,000 troops). The army is ordered to take Kashgar and to hold it and not to move on. People are encouraged to join the army and people under 15 must have parent's permission to join. Some opium fields are burned for wheat or cattle to feed the army and people. We ask China for a ceasefire (MOD). The border with India has a few guard shacks built in case of an Indian attack but also secretly for helping leading Hezbi member and arms into India.
    • Ansar Al Deen: (Afghani spies) The group of spies are sent to India to rally up Muslims in an idea of Muslim Unity with Afghanistan. The group is allowed to set up camps in Afghanistan and train anyone who wants to join. The group mostly works in poor areas telling young people about the Munguals and how they can recreate them and bring pride to Muslims in India once again. The group begins to work on recruiting members in India.
    • Jamaat-e-Islami: (Afghani-backed and created political party) Protests are held in Peshawar, Islamabad, Karachi, Hyderabad, and Kandahar calling to join Afghanistan. The group begins to work on aiming at kids showing them that they're here to stay and help. Schools are opened up for children and self defense classes are held for adults (male and female). The group begins to work setting up in Bangladesh.The group works on recruiting more members in India.
    • Hezbi Islami: (Afghani-backed/made Jihadist group) The group is made in India, but most are trained and armed in Afghan camps. The group is ordered not to attack. The group recruits hardcore members of Ansar Al Deen and Jammat e Islami.
    • South German Empire Diplomacy: We offer to send 50,000 high quality Werndl–Holub rifles, 20 Krupp C64 artillery, 20 Krupp C67 artillery, 50 Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns (With instructions to be used from short range as they are more effective that way), ammo, supplies, one million USD to finance the war, military advisors to aid them, in exchange for concessions, preferably natural resources.
    • Afghan Dip: We accept the deal.
    • China (MOD): China agrees to a truce.
  • Papal States: With the Lorenço Marques Seminary operating in full swing, a call is again sent out to New Bruxelles for permission to build a seminary there to train both natives and European colonists.
  • Toucouleur Empire: We continue to maintain the 10,000 troop garrison in New Brussels as we inhabit three of the total eight forts. We build up more and more infrastructure, economy, industry and military for our nation and our vassals. We buy up foreign investments and territories to not only improve our nation's standing on the world market but to provide additional income to our expanding economy. We expand our military to 90,000 troops as more people from across the empire join its ranks. We try to incite rebellion in the French Protectorate of Futa Toro as they control the homeland of our king and of the Toucouleur People. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
    • New Bruxelles Diplomacy: We ask if our nation is eligible to join the Anti-Colonial League that the Toucouleur Empire created, and if so that we could join it, as we are now an entire nation in Africa, no longer a colony.
    • Futa Toro (MOD): Under the firm control of the French Empire, the message fails to get through the border.
  • New Bruxelles: We stop expanding for half the year, focusing on building up our cities and infrastructure in our nation. We continue constructing boats for our military and trading, many of the military vessels now constructed of iron and other metals. We have restored our economy, industry, and infrastructure to their original state before the several wars. We also begin focus on improving the quality of life in our nation, beginning making much more public education and health care.
  • France: The Emperor returns from his tour around Wallonia, welcomed in Paris with the news of Quebec coming under French protection. To celebrate, he announces he will be traveling to Quebec City, to receive himself the document and see the situation of his relative as King of the Quebecois. French industry keeps growing, and the soldiers in Mexico keep pushing against the USA, although wishing for peace to arrive. Seeing Toucolour attempts to stop French West Africa, the government sends supplies to rival elites inside the Toucolour Empire, to make the regime unstable. The troops at China keep their position until a permanent peace is signed. Around 50,000 regular troops are dispatched to French West Africa, to keep order in the region.
  • Patagonia: While recruitment and work on the infrastructures continue, the King officialy announce that he plan to cancel the charter of rights given to the Mapuches by his uncle Antoine I. This decision came from his personal feeling of the superiority of European nobles over the Mapuches. Many believe Jean I may even try to deny the Mapuches their right to elect the King (even if he was himself elected by them).
    • Mapuche people (MOD): The Mapuche people are outraged by the corruption and perversion of the very monarchy they helped to establish. Unrest begins to grip Patagonia as the Mapuche people protest against this backward change.
  • Russia continues to enjoy the newly elected Congress, led by the liberal-labor coalition. While many reformist ideas are seriously debated, the landowner-chosen Council tends to kill most measures before they reach the Emperor. The war in China continues, with Xianjiang and Mongolia secured by Russian forces. Despite the lack of de jute recognition, we already begin to integrate these new realms into the empire, offering inustrial advancement to native Uighurs and Mongols. We work to train the forces of our allies in Eastern Europe, including Slovakia and Romania.
  • North Germany: With the rising tide of South German attack the Commune decides to formally create a revolutionary armed force called the Red Worker's and Peasant's Army. Enlistment was popular among the lower classes and the bottom of society, with new recruits numering around 40,000 in October alone, plus 15,000 defectors from the Imperial Army. We begin an offensive to wrestle out Pomerania from Commitee control, and hold off Jutlandese and South German forces. Meanwhile we still hope for an armistice with Jutland to concentrate on destroying the Committee. More warships begin to defect to the the Commune, which later became the basis of the Red Worker's and Peasant's Navy.
  • Japan: We end our expedition in the Yaghtze river seeing it being to high risk for any potential reward. We plan to rebuild Taipei and give Taiwanese ethnic groups the same rights as Japanese people. We rebuild and modernize our navy. We continue to produce fertilizer producing 100,000 tonnes per half year. The five new colleges we have produced are coming along good, able to educate 750 people all together in the new five bringing our college attendance to 8000 individuals. We begin blockading major ports of China to prevent their economy from recovering quickly. We increase infrastructure in mainland japan panning to create the first Major Railway from Edo to Kyoto. With current plans it should be done by 1879. We continue to push for immigration to our pacific territories. Vanua Lava has over 10 families and a population of 250. The coffee industry is gaining footing on the island with over 2,000 tonnes being produced.

The Chinese Socialist Republic now commences its first five-year plan. The collectivisation of many farming areas follows.

Any remaining private property within areas controlled by the Chinese are now nationalised. Any records of private property in banks or other institutions are now burned, as a precautionary measure, in case the capitalists topple the Socialist regime.

Many Chinese are killed as part of the systematic purge of political dissent in areas under control of the Chinese Socialist Republic.

The Chinese Socialist regime, having made a truce with most of its enemies, initiates a secret huge military buildup, but with no one willing to supply them with weapons, they attempt to copy Krupp artillery, Werndl–Holub rifles and Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns and other European equipment they possess, although the final product's quality is very low. However the plan proceed.

Qullasuyu troops supported by Krupp artillery, wreaks havoc to Peruvian troops, which are also harassed by Quechua and Aymara guerilla fighters.

Qullasuyu, Quechua and Aymara peasants given weapons by their government, cause sustainable losses to the guerilla fighters who retreat beyond the borders, with other governments like Argentina and Brazil, providing them some supplies and weapons seeing the threat presented by Qullasuyu, although unwilling to resort to force as of now.

Argentina and Brazil demand the restoration of the Bolivian former government and the immediate cessation of hostile actions between Quechua/Aymara fighters and the Peruvian government.

Muslim Unity, funded by Afghanistan, continues to gain popularity amongst Muslim in India. Indian government increases efforts to suppress this, often resorting to violence and secretly torturing captured Afghan spies and supporters. More and more Hindu war hawks start to call for retaliation against Afghanistan, although the Indian government is indecisive on this, borders are officially closed with Afghanistan.Guys, shouldn't Hungary, be defeated by now, because it's being attacked by Romania, Slovakia and Yugoslavia, as well as Northern Germany, both groups, because my forces are like five times more than theirs at least, especially the Commies because I have deployed like 550,000 troops against their 55,000 (which they recruited this turn) ... ~Wrto12

  • Great Korean Empire: Korean troops in Manchuria come back home after years of service fighting against the Chinese. The territories of Korea begin a massive administrative reform, with the original eight provinces being divided into new subdivisions (i.e, special cities, metropolitan municipalities). The occupied territories of Liaoning, Weihai and Yantai are annexed into the Great Korean Empire; Liaoning, with the exception of Dalian, is divided into two provinces, Weihai and Yantai become fused together to become the Sandong province, and finally, Dalian becomes a city. Korean industrial complexes continue to be developed, with the industrial output experiencing exponential growth. Alongside this is the construction of paved roads, railwaya, canals, factories, schools, libraries, and residential buildings. Westernisation under the "Western bowl, Eastern rice" policy continues with Western attire and architecture becoming more and more common but core Confucian values being preserved.
  • China: Prohibited all political parties except the Communist Party of China. The deviation from the Official course in the party also banned. Collectivization of villages began to receive funds for the development of heavy industry and the defense industry. Published call for Communists and Socialists of the world to assist in the transition of China to industrial and then to the Communist society (involvement of specialists)
  • Patagonia: Although military control begins to appear in the cities, the King insists that he plans to deal with the Mapuche opposition peacefully and that he is open to negotiations. However, many suspect that his lack of offensive action is due to the illness of his father-in-law, the Marshal Vincent Montessier. The Marhsal, believing he is too sick to keep his job, decides to quit the his position to fully focus on recovering and on his role as nobleman. He is replaced by Gizdan Ravlic, a Croatian who immigrated with the volunteers years ago. Although loyal to the ideology of his king, the new Marshal show more openness toward the Mapuche, and also say he doesn't plan to take military actions again the Mapuches. In a show of good faith, no work is made to improve the army this year, and instead improvements are made in agriculture and industries. The King also announce the birth of his daughter, Amélie.
    • Emperor Tupac III Amaru of Qullasuyu sends his congratulations to the King of Patagonia and proposes an alliance between their two nations as a means of defence against mutual enemies (i.e. Argentina).
    • Patagonian Dip: King Jean I refused the alliance, reminding Tupac III that Argentina helped Patagonia years ago, and that without them Patagonia would not exist today. However, he is willing to play as Mediator in the conflict.
      • Patagonia (OOC): Also, the King is kind of a racist toward Native South Americans.
  • Qullasuyu continues its invasion of Peru, using its German-supplied heavy artillery to smash through Peruvian strongpoints. Quechua guerrillas in the high Andes are organized and rearmed to launch a secondary offensive which takes the Peruvian troops defending Cusco in the rear as regular Qullasuyu troops attack north from Lake Titicaca. With support from local peasants, Qullasuyu troops are easily able to outflank Peruvian regular forces, restricting them to the coastal strip around Lima. Meanwhile, substantial bribes are directed to Brazilian and Argentinian officials to encourage non-intervention; tribes in the eastern Amazon are also funded to attack the guerrilla forces operating from their territory. Meanwhile, heavy fortification of eastern Bolivia begins, with the high passes needed to access the Andean plateau packed with entrenchments and machine gun nests.
    • South German Diplomacy: We give technical assistance and the knowhow to the Qullasuyu government to build better heavy fortifications, sending civil engineers and military engineers who will also assist at improving Qullasuyu infrastructure.
  • Emirate of Afghanistan: The nation begins to work on industries. The country begins looking for any nations that are going to help them. Farmers are encouraged to grow wheat but most of them grow opium and sell it to neighboring countries. Roads are built but most are dirt roads. We would like to open talks with the Indian Empire. The idea of national unity begins to rise in cities, as the national army begins to work on arming with whatever weapons they have. People are encouraged to join the army and people under 15 must have parent's permission to join. Some opium fields are burned for wheat or cattle to feed the army and people. The border with India has a few guard shacks built in case of an Indian attack but also secretly for helping leading Hezbi member and arms into India. We begin to train Hezbi members on how to make homemade rockets (gun powder,long tube, and something like a rock). With the new help from S.Germany we begin to let them into Afghanistan, With the 1 million USD from S.Germany more roads are made and more cities begin to become more Urbanize with more schools and jobs being open. Farmers begin to get paid more for growing food then growing Opium. The army is now put at standby and some troops are sent to the Indian border.
    • Ansar Al Deen: (Afghani spies) The group of spies are sent to India to rally up Muslims in an idea of Muslim Unity with Afghanistan. The group is allowed to set up camps in Afghanistan and train anyone who wants to join. The group mostly works in poor areas telling young people about the Munguals and how they can recreate them and bring pride to Muslims in India once again. The group begins to work on recruiting members in India. Members begin to take control of rural villages most using swords and knifes rising black flags.
    • Jamaat-e-Islami: (Afghani-backed and created political party) Protests are held in Peshawar, Islamabad, Karachi, Hyderabad, and Kandahar calling to join Afghanistan. The group begins to work on aiming at kids showing them that they're here to stay and help. Schools are opened up for children and self defense classes are held for adults (male and female). The group begins to work setting up in Bangladesh. The group works on recruiting more members in India that are more easy due to India's action. sit in are made in Hyderbad and Islambad, where protesters work on making defences by using trash and making molotav cocktails with some members carrying swords.
    • Hezbi Islami: (Afghani-backed/made Jihadist group) The group is made in India, but most are trained and armed in Afghan camps. The group is ordered to attack military targets (mostly convoys and lonely FOBs). The group recruits hardcore members of Ansar Al Deen and Jammat e Islami. Rocket attacks are made on Indian FOBs in muslim majority areas.
  • South German Empire: We continue to make all necessary efforts to prepare the stage for the implementation of the draft for the Imperial Constitution of a newly unified Germany. New offensives are launched by our armed forces, supported by Krupp artillery, while coordinating with the White army, against the Commune of Hamburg as well as any other Commies are attacked by the majority of our forces, causing devastating losses. Specifically Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns prove once again to be lethal from short range to the Communist forces. Our troops move to secure areas behind enemy lines as we continue to advance forward, as well as to remove the Commie threat. Foreign investments continue development, mines in Afghanistan and Qullasuyu are opened by private investors after contest, while new metallurgical industries are created back at home by said investors to process the ores, after shipping them back home. A national Petroleum corporation is founded, named "Petro-German Corp" after granted exclusive rights to oil exploration in La Pas province, we start drilling the oil from the oil wells. A share of 40% of the Petro-German Corp is then sold to private investors. Steyr has now acquired a 10% share of Petro-German Corp, while Krupp acquires a 12% share of Petro-German Corp. Local Afghanistan and Qullasuyu economies are benefited from investments. Steyr has grown immensely, due to our huge orders of rifles and other weapons and continues to be an innovative weapons manufacturer, while supplying many of our needs in military equipment and ammo. Krupp and Steyr are competing for government contracts for war material, which augment their growth and quality. Development of our nation continues, improving our infrastructure and our industry. We continue centralizing the South German Empire.
    • South German Empire Diplomacy: We offer the Commies one last chance to surrender. Should they surrender, we promise them safe passage to China. We pressure Argentina and Brazil to stop threatening Qullasuyu and leave it be. We pressure the Indian government to initiate talks with Afghanistan. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED)
    • South German Empire Secret Diplomacy to Jutland: To keep up the war effort against the Commie, we offer to send 50,000 high quality Werndl–Holub rifles, 50 Krupp C64 artillery, 50 Krupp C67 artillery, 250 Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns (With instructions to be used from short range as they are more effective that way), ammo, supplies, military advisors to aid them and expect to be paid after war is over (Like OTL Lend-Lease).
    • South German Empire Secret Diplomacy to Siam: We offer to send 50,000 high quality Werndl–Holub rifles, 50 Krupp C64 artillery, 50 Krupp C67 artillery, 250 Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns (With instructions to be used from short range as they are more effective that way), ammo, supplies, military advisors to aid them, in exchange for some concessions.
    • Siamese Secret Diplomacy to South Germany: Rama V accepts the offer.
    • Jutland Secret Diplomacy to South Germany: We accept the deal but instead make the offer that some of the payment be covered by help building the German navy after unification occurs.
    • South German Diplomacy to Jutland: Of course we agree with the proposal.
  • Westralia: Construction of irrigation pipelines to the goldfields begins, and it is hoped that water for the coast will be able to help feed the growing population in the east. As our population expands, food becomes increasingly scarce, and imports barely manage to feed the people. As unrest begins to grip the nation due to the impending potential famine, Congress passes a bill enacting a rationing system for all citizens, including the Royal Family, which the King agrees to, to ensure that all existing food is portioned out only as needed. As this can only be a temporary situation, the Government begins to subsidise the creation of more farms, and for people in the city to move to the country and establish new farms to feed the population. Growth of the population slows as our young country attempts to battle the problems facing us. We ask Australia to help us out with food aid. We offer to share administration of Hong Kong with our eastern neighbour in return.
    • Korean Dip: We offer to give a 20% discount on rice imports in exchange for a 15% discount on precious metals such as iron and gold.
  • Hawaii: Our military and infrastructure improve. Modernization of Honolulu and Kailua-Kona continues, and our settlements grow. We hope we can settle the Cook Islands dispute as the convention in Suva begins[Japan, Bora Bora, please post your proposals] As they were formerly under Tahiti's sphere of influence, we annex the Tuamotus, the Prime Minister declaring "We are the rightful successors to govern these islands." They are incorporated into 'Alihikaua Autonomous Province. We ask other nations for us to purchase some of their old, obsolete frigates, to develop into Hawaiian warships. Guava cultivation, pearl collection, fishing success, and tourism revenues all increase, helping our economy along as our pineapple industry, although rather obsolete, manages to survive through local trade and with New Bruxelles.
  • Toucouleur Empire: We allow New Brussels to join the anti colonial league as they do not attack any nation in Africa and are now totally in Africa. We withdraw 5000 troops from New Brussels as France is lurking ever so closely to our borders. We will continue to improve all sectors of our technologies. In our capital, we build our first sewage system as the filth on our streets is incurring a lot of costs to us. We train 5000 troops for our military but these men have only one purpose, to disrupt the ability of the Europeans to colonize Africa by causing chaos, sabotaging infrastructure, inciting rebellion and assassinating key figures. We try to counter all the efforts by France to incite rebellion and we instead make sure the 50,000 troops that came to Africa experience hell.
    • South German Empire Secret Diplomacy: We offer to sell 25,000 Werndl–Holub rifles, 20 Krupp C64 artillery, 20 Krupp C67 artillery, 50 Montigny mitrailleuse machine guns (With instructions to be used from short range as they are more effective that way), ammo, supplies, military advisors to aid them, to be paid with pure gold upfront.
    • Toucouleur Empire Secret: We accept the South German Arms giving pure Gold and our thanks.
  • Guiana Federation: We continue to improve infrastructure and economy. The supplies are naturally improving as well to keep most of the people healhty. Military is normally recruiting more troops for at least 150 per year, but it expects a better army and probably to expand a military size which it will be planned usually. Georgetown's population is slightly growing, but the modernization on capital city will be planned.
  • Jutland: We continue our attacks on Oldenburg and Pomerania. However, with the ceasefire we begin to move towards occupying Pomerania where the Hamburg Commune is located. We offer to the German empire in exchange for Oldenburg and Pomerania we would abide to the ceasefire currently. We continue to support the Norwegian rebels. We begin to create more rebel cells in Norway hoping to recruit more citizens who are in support of a Jut prince being crowned king of Norway Mod Response. Industralization in Saxe-lauenburg continues with more factories being opened. In northern Schleswig-Holstein we work on the technology department focusing it on naval matters. In Danish Congo we expand 10 px north and 20 px east into the Kingdom of Kongo beginning to threaten their sovereignty and we establish the port town called Cape Christian after our King. Our Navy expand by two warships, five battleships and 20 other ships. Our military expands by 20,000 men
  • United States of Gran Colombia: The Colombian Enlightenment continues causing faster development technologically, industrially, and culturally. The Colombian military becomes more modernized with German military advisors and arms, and the structure begins to mirror the German system. With the Treaty of Panama City signed finally signed earlier in the year, the Panama Canal begins to be built with the help of France and Germany. As the foreign workers begin to arrive in Panama, the Colombian leader of the project, Gustavo Pinilla estimates the canal will be done in twenty years or less. Rey takes hold of new Colombian workers and the enlightenment and uses it to develop Bolivar Square in Bogota. A new enlightenment sculptor, Victor Rojas, is tasked with resculpting a larger version of the Simon Bolivar statue in the center. He also orders the continuation of the National Capitol, and the beginning of building the Palace of Justice and a Presidential Palace in a neoclassical style. President Rey officially states that he agrees with Brazil and Argentina, and that he will not support any monarchy or empire. He states that he does not recognize the new government, and demands elections and the restoration of the previous democracy. The enlightenment continues to affect and influence South American art, architecture, literature, politics, and technology.
    • Qullasuyu spits in the face of these elitist threats. Gran Colombia ought to spend more time feeding and clothing its neglected people and less time rebuilding palaces and interfering in foreign countries. Restore the democracy? Bolivia has not had an election in 30 years; coups are the true Bolivian tradition. Perhaps Gran Colombia try democracy itself first; Qullasuyu doubts the Colombian peasantry would want money spent on canals and statues instead of food for the starving if they could freely choose.
  • New Bruxelles: We continue to work on our industry, economy and infrastructure. We increase our navy by ten ships and several trade ships. We also work on creating more sources of food and materials for our expanded territory and population. We also create defenses and educational buildings for our cities to appease the population in them. We host a festival of harvest, with our first major seasonal harvest of tropical crops occurring, boosting the morale of troops and the citizens because of the festival.
  • Peru:We train rebels in on the border of Bolivia we also station some troops in major cities we also ask France for help against the Bolivian nation we also help to become more modern we also train more troops we also ask Bolivia for a peace with reforms for my nation
    • Qullasuyu's peace conditions are as follows: 1) Peru will cede all of its territory east of the Ucayali and Apurimac rivers, including the port of Arequipa. 2) Peru will demilitarize, restricting its military to 20,000, and allow native local authorities to maintain their own militias and communal land rights free of government restriction. 3) Peru will grant exclusive mining concessions for silver, tin and copper to South Germany.
    • Peru: We accept the first two demands but I want to talk about the third one which I don't agree.
  • Indian Empire : Indian intelligence uncovers a network of violent extremists and a major police operation is underway to crack down on extremists groups. The police force now consists of around 80,000 men through out the country. This is expected to rise to around 120,000 in the next 2 years. Recently a surge in enrolment, partly due to recent attacks, has enabled the government to set up Police posts and stations in even more parts of the country. The new President has opened talks with neighbouring Afghanistan and the senate has approved the formation of a new body for cultural and religious affairs. The DfCR (Department for Culture and Religion) will aim to reduce tension between different ethnic groups in India. The President has ordered the mobilisation of reservists, as tensions grow throughout the country. 150,000 more troops are moved to Tibet and work starts on creating more defensive positions on the border with China due to rising threats of a Chinese counter attack. Indian continues to accept the truce with China but warns that 600,000 men are ready to attack in case of any form of counter attack by Chinese forces. The Indian Defence Council establishes the National Customs and Border Protection Service. The 15,000 men strong force will protect Indian Borders and help tackle smuggling. The force is currently recruiting and will look to expand.
    • Afghan Dip: We would like to open talk in hopes of uniting Muslim areas to Afghanistan or at the very least work on a peaceful ending. We ask India to if the India Afghan border become a DMV zone (demilitarze zone)
    • Korea OOC: India cannot simply control Tibet. Tibet is extremely mountainous (which makes it difficult to invade, but also isolates India) and there is no incentive to control Tibet whatsoever.

1878

The United States Government, appalled at the sudden turn of events for the worse, once again calls for negotiations to resume, fearing the country's total collapse at the hands of Canada and the Confederacy.

Despite the Confederacy's best efforts, unrest grips the northern borderlands as protest against the reinstatement of slavery continues.

A sudden outburst of unrest in Lower Lusatia in North Germany results in a general strike in various areas in the region. The military governor of the Lower Lusatia Province installed by the Committee of Safety responds by sending in regiments of soldiers to put down the strike. However, tragedy ensues when the violent crushing of the walkout results in the deaths of thirty young child labourers, who were caught in the miners' strike. Outrage spreads across the country as news of the events reaches neighbouring cities, who begin to switch allegiances to the Hamburg Commune.

The Hungarians reluctantly lay down their arms and agree to initiate negotiations.

Due to rapid collectivisation in China and the reluctance of peasants to work in such collectives, agricultural production crashes, and the Chinese people face a devastating famine.

Mutsuhito, the Emperor of Japan, begins to cause trouble for the Shogun as he begins to demand more power to influence the affairs of his country.


  • Russian Empire: With our war efforts in China continuing, Russian military forces now control Xianjiang, Mongolia, Inner Mongolia, and Heilongjiang. We offer a peace with China, in exchange for temporary food support. (MOD). Our economy continues to perform well as a global superpower. This means more industrialization occurs, with agricultural practices becoming more and more advanced to feed the growing Russian population. The Party for National Progress gains a lot of popularity as its leader takes on many of the Democratic Labor Front's positions on trade unions after the shocking incident in Lower Lusatia. We continue to support the militaries of Romania, Slovakia and Yugoslavia even after the Hungarian war to continue to gain favor with our associated states.
  • Emirate of Afghanistan: The nation begins to work on industries. The country begins looking for any nations that are going to help them. Farmers are encouraged to grow wheat but most of them grow opium and sell it to neighboring countries. Roads are built but most are dirt roads. We would like to open talks with the Indian Empire.

Farmers begin to get paid more for growing food then growing Opium. The army is now put at standby and some troops are sent to the Indian border. In hope of stopping a war with India we open up a treaty. A military draft is made and men from 16 - 35 join the army.

Rocket attacks are made on Indian FOBs in muslim majority areas.
  • Hawaii: Our military and infrastructure improve. Modernization of Honolulu and Kailua-Kona continues, and our settlements grow. We are proud to announce that David Kalākaua has been elected as the Commonwealth of Hawai'i's new Prime Minister. We begin contruction of a port on Johnston Atoll. In the provinces of Mau'i and Kilauea, we begin allocating rural lands for general agriculture (stuff like wheat, rice, vegetables, etc.) and cattle. Construction of Honolulu University continues. We once again offer to purchase retired frigates from other nations, and perhaps assist us in developing steam power. (note: we have not begun any ventures into steam power yet)
  • Great Korean Empire: Korea continues a massive reform in administration. The eleven provinces of Korea (except major cities and Jeju island) become prefectures proper (do; literally "province"), the major cities of Pyongyang, Dalyeon, Daejeon, Gwangju, Incheon, and Busan become urban prefectures (si; literally "city"), the capital city of Hanseong becomes the sole metropolitan prefecture (틐별시teukbyeolsi; literally "special city"), and lastly, Jeju island becomes the sole territory (영토yeongto). The Korean government forms the Korean Planning Board, a committee of advisors that decide, together with Emperor Gojong, on how Korea should be developed through five-year plans. Korean industrial complexes continue to be developed, with the industrial output experiencing exponential growth. Alongside this is the construction of paved roads, railway, canals, factories, schools, libraries, and residential buildings. Westernisation under the "Western bowl, Eastern rice" policy continues as Western attire and architecture become more and more common but core Confucian values remain preserved.
  • Guiana Federation: Military and industry expands. While Georgetown's population is literally growing slightly up. Some of the various cities has some roads completed, but the rail network is not finalised yet upon that plan. Although more cities are also slightly growing, as it seems that there is still more to come. The ships are still in construction in one of the ports. It still remains and it should be finally built.
  • Patagonia: Under the new Marshal, the army continue to expand, and the industry is growing once again. Still, the problems between the Mapuches and King Jean I continue to grow. After asking for a meeting, the Mapuche weret runed down by both the King and the Secretary of State, forcing them to deal with the Marshal. Due to his lack of power over the issue, Ravlic can only guive them vague promises.
  • Bora Bora: We offer trade to Japan while sending officials to study western techniques. We sadly announce the untimely death of Teriʻimaevarua II due to sickness leaving 6 year old Pomare VI to be crowned as Vaea I (Tahitan for King of the Ocean) and his father to serve as regent until 1888 when Vaea turns 16.
    • Hawaiian Royal Family: The royal family sends their regards to the Bora Boran royal family.
  • Papal States: In early February, Pope Pius IX dies, and a suitable Pontifical funeral is organised. Two weeks after his death, the Papal Conclave begins and, after a mere two days, white smoke is seen coming from the conclave, and the Protodeacon announces "Habemus Papam", who is revealed to be Vincenzo Pecci, notable Papal diplomat and former Archbishop of Perugia. He takes the name Leo XIII and is crowned in the usual ceremony. Liberals in the Curia are greatly excited by his election, as Leo is seen to be very different to his predecessor both in terms of politics and temperament. One of His Holiness' first acts as Pope is to restore the Catholic Episcopal hierarchy to Scotland, following the restoration of the English hierarchy two decades ago. 
  • Westralia: Construction of the irrigation pipelines to the Goldfields continue, as does the national rail network. We welcome food aid from our Korean friends, and agree to lower the prices of our wine for Korean customers. Our wine industry is doing well, and it is hoped that the revenue generated can go towards expanding our agriculture to combat the potential onset of famine. The rationing system continues, with each citizen only receiving as much as they need; police now regularly check richer homes for illegal stockpiles.
    • Hawaii: We invest in the Westralian wine industry, and encourage Westralian investment in guavas.
  • France: Emperor Napoleon IV returns from his trip to Quebec, having received the cheers from a now free francophone people in North America, and also the protectorate document signed by the King and with the approval of the local parliament. The Imperial family takes a photograph just outside the Tulleries Palace, with the image running through the nation, being hanged in walls across families living rooms, as the Napoleonic rule has been bringing prosperity to the people never seen before. The military industry boom stops, since the war at China is under a truce and the North American war seems to be getting close to an end. The French Ambassador to the USA said the government would offer for France (with Mexico and Quebec) to end the conflict with the Americans should Quebec be recognized as in the frontiers of the Treaty of Harrisburg proposal, although saying that would only be a truce, since France would not make an official treaty without the consent of the other parties at war; rather wishing for the Americans to accept the full treaty. (MOD RESPONSE) The 50,000 regular troops that were pacifying the Walloon province are now sent to the 1st and 2nd fleets, that are sent to French West Africa, from were they'll start a blockade of the Toucolour Empire ports, disallowing any ships to dock and trade there. The government also keeps suppling the rival factions in the Toucolour Empire, provoking them to rebellion, stating that the 50,000 troops stationed in French West Africa, and the 50,000 at the naval blockade, will support them if they agree to become a French Protectorate under French West Africa. (MOD RESPONSE) Due to possible conflicts, the national guard troops formerly in Germany, fighting for South Germany, are called back, and if they refuse they will lose supplies, money and their citizenship. Expansion of the naval force is accepted, and a Naval Studies Academy is founded in Marseille, to be headed by the former British naval officers that defected to France. Their skills will be tought there, to keep France as a major naval power, with the more modern naval tactics. Supplies are sent to Egypt, and the Emperor sent a (SECRET) letter to the Khedive, offering French intervention against the Ottomans should they require (SECRET END / MOD RESPONSE). The army regular numbers reach the wished 600,000, while the national guard receives applicants from Wallonia, reaching 500,000 recruits. Also, the legitimist and Orleanist causes seems to be at a low point, since their claimants have enjoyed the new titles and status in the French nobility, while the nation's people enjoy current rule. Settlers are sent to Madagascar, the French West Africa colonies, to Empress Gisela Island (Where the Imperial Summer Palace has been concluded) and to the Tahiti Naval Base, assuring French colonization in those areas. The government has sent a (SECRET) letter to the King of Morocco, offering support for a modernization of the local economy and military, and also of a colonization effort, should it become a French Protectorate. (SECRET END / MOD RESPONSE) Workers are sent to Colombia, to start the construction of the Panama Canal, and several French experts are sent to design the project and help the logistics. Doctors are also sent to analyze the area, and decide if the conditions are suitable for the French workers, as requested by the French Parliament after the numerous deaths in the Suez Canal construction.
  • New Bruxelles: We continue to improve our economy, industry, infrastructure, and the military of our nation. We bring our military force up to 20,000 men once more. We also begin to create a railway system that will span our country, which should take roughly a year. We expand another 5px east into Africa, preparing for a large expansion soon.
    • Papal Diplomacy Pope Leo XIII sends an Apostolic Legate to New Bruxelles to establish diplomatic ties, to determine whether the Catholic community in the new country is sufficient to warrant the setting up of a proper Episcopal Hierarchy, and also to request permission to build a large regional seminary to train both native and colonist candidates for the priesthood.
  • Toucouleur Empire: With the French blockade of Liberia and our ports we secretly send our products to both Sierra Leone and New Brussels as New Brussels is our ally and Sierra Leone is a colony run by black slaves. We send the 5,000 troops trained in covert operations to secretly kill colonists, sow dissent and destroy their infrastructure of France. (MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED) In our port of Liberia, we use their knowledge of a fleet to begin to create of our own starting with 5 warships adding to the two gunboats the Liberians had. We continue to develop our nation in all aspects and add a new manifesto to the pre-emptive strike against colonist nations in the anti-colonial league. We continue to crack down or negotiate with rival factions within our nation but they have been mostly dealt with in the Segu Massacre.
  • South Africa: Does the same stuff I always do.

1878.5

Unrest in North Germany continues following the massacre of the peaceful protestors in the Lower Lusatia region, with more towns and communities than ever declaring their support for the Hamburg Commune. The people rapidly lose faith in the Committee of Safety, and it appears that a socialist revolution to unseat the Committee in North Germany is imminent.

The United States Government explodes into chaos quite literally as the Capitol in Washington DC is bombed during a session of Congress by rogue Confederate agents in the US. The President, Rutherford B. Hayes, was not present, but many Congressmen have been killed as a result of the explosion. As a result of this blatant and dishonourable attack, people even in the South are outraged at their government for such treachery.

What little sanity remaining in the United States disappears following the attack on the Capitol, and survivors of the attack flee Washington DC. As a result, the United States Government collapses completely and President Hayes loses most of his Cabinet. Hayes is forced to take a more dictatorial role due to him being one of the few government officials left in the country.

Chilean nationalists in Patagonia rally the unhappy Mapuches behind them, declaring that a new Chilean government would return their rights to them.

Japan's capital city of Edō becomes the centre of attention in October as the Shogun is suddenly shot in the head during a public outing by an unknown assailant, who fled the scene immediately after the shooting. The Shogun remains in a critical condition, and was immediately taken to the nearest hospital.

Southern Germany has deployed like 1.200.000 troops against Northern Germany, which now only fight against the Commies, since i made a ceasefire with the Commitee of Safety, 4 turns ago. How are they even still alive???~Wrto12

Even though the core has been put down doesn't mean new people can't join the Commune. Revolution isn't a simple "cutting off the head will kill the beast" scenario. ~Tim


  • Emirate of Afghanistan: The nation begins to work on industries. The country begins looking for any nations that are going to help them. Farmers are encouraged to grow wheat but most of them grow opium and sell it to neighboring countries. Roads are built but most are dirt roads. We would like to open talks with the Indian Empire. The idea of national unity begins to rise in cities, as the national army begins to work on arming with whatever weapons they have. People are encouraged to join the army and people under 15 must have parent's permission to join. Some opium fields are burned for wheat or cattle to feed the army and people. The border with India has more guard shacks built in case of an Indian attack but also secretly for helping leading Hezbi member and arms into India. We begin to train Hezbi members on how to make homemade rockets (gun powder,long tube, and something like a rock). With the new help from S.Germany we begin to let them into Afghanistan, With the 1 million USD from S.Germany more roads are made and more cities begin to become more Urbanize with more schools and jobs being open. Farmers begin to get paid more for growing food then growing Opium. Mines are open that open up more jobs for afghans The army is now put at standby and some troops are sent to the Indian border. In hope of stopping a war with India we open up a treaty. A military draft is made and men from 16 - 35 join the army and 10,000 troops are sent to the Indian border.
    • Ansar Al Deen: (Afghani spies) The group of spies are sent to India to rally up Muslims in an idea of Muslim Unity with Afghanistan. The group is allowed to set up camps in Afghanistan and train anyone who wants to join. The group mostly works in poor areas telling young people about the Munguals and how they can recreate them and bring pride to Muslims in India once again. The group begins to work on recruiting members in India. Members begin to take control of rural villages most using swords and knifes rising black flags, A army of 2,000 is sent to Kandahar.
    • Jamaat-e-Islami: (Afghani-backed and created political party) Protests are held in Peshawar, Islamabad, Karachi, Hyderabad, and Kandahar calling to join Afghanistan. The group begins to work on aiming at kids showing them that they're here to stay and help. Schools are opened up for children and self defense classes are held for adults (male and female). The group begins to work setting up in Bangladesh. The group works on recruiting more members in India that are more easy due to India's action. sit in are made in Hyderbad and Islambad, where protesters work on making defenses by using trash and making Molotov cocktails with some members carrying swords as the number of members rise.Orders are made to not attack Hindus, But some members begin to burn down Hindu temples.
    • Hezbi Islami: (Afghani-backed/made Jihadist group) The group is made in India, but most are trained and armed in Afghan camps. The group is ordered to attack military targets (mostly convoys and lonely FOBs). The group recruits hardcore members of Ansar Al Deen and Jammat e Islami. Rocket attacks are made on Indian FOBs in Muslim majority areas. Members begin to take control of small cities in some what populated areas, with a few carrying guns. An army of 4,000 most carrying sword and a few with guns begin to march into Kandahar and meet with Ansar members.
  • Hawaii: Our military and infrastructure improve. Modernization of Honolulu and Kailua-Kona continues, and our settlements grow. We send officials to study western techniques and technology (PLAUSIBLE?). Our latest shipment to Johnston Atoll contains supplies to begin cattle pastures and general agriculture on the eastern side of the main island. We once again offer to purchase retired frigates from other nations. 12-year-old Prince Kamehameha VI begins extensive study in politics in anticipation of becoming the monarch in less than a decade's time. Construction of Honolulu University continues, and we begin to invest more in education and subsidise school constructions.
    • MOD: Given the current state of your technology, you wouldn't be able to send people very far. You'd probably only be able to go as far as countries in Australasia or in the Americas.
    • OOC Hawai'i: Thanks for the gauge of plausibilty. I'm sure I can find what I need in San Francisco, Sydney, Kyoto, etc.
    • Westralian Dip: We offer to sponsor Prince Kamehameha's education by having him study under Westralia's education system. He will have a guaranteed place at one of Perth's top schools and if he does well in the entrance exams an assured place in Westralia's Royal Swan University.
    • Hawai'ian Diplomacy: We agree, and thank Westralia. However, travelling overseas means he must stay under substantial guard.
  • Great Korean Empire: Emperor Gojong begins a tour of the various Korean regions, receiving high approval rates from the general public (aside from some hardliners). The First Five-year Development Plan (lasting from 1878 to 1883) begins. A Korean diplomat is sent to Japan to check on the condition of the Shogun, and to pay him his respects for surviving such a tragic event. Korean industrial complexes continue to be developed, with the industrial output experiencing exponential growth. Alongside this is the construction of paved roads, railway, canals, factories, schools, libraries, and residential buildings. Westernisation under the "Western bowl, Eastern rice" policy continues as Western attire and architecture become more and more common but core Confucian values remain preserved.
  • Second Texan Republic As the United States falls into chaos, we take the advantage and send 10,000 troops to occupy Southern California. The new pro slavery tax we placed is working well, as we have seen a rise of slave owners by 19%, most of which, are the colonists that headed west to improve the land. We request an alliance with the Confederate States of America, as we are both enemies of the United States.
    • France OOC: Mexico, with help of France, has already started an invasion of Southern California and is going upper north. So that area would be, at least, already occupied.
    • Second Texan Repiblic Alright, we can position our troops into Southern Nevada.
  • North Germany: With the unrest escalating across the country, the revolution has already reached Berlin. As the battleship KMS Kaiser Franz, now in the Spree river, fires a blank shot at the Reich Chancellery, giving the signal for revoltuionaries and the Red Army to storm the place. The next week, on August 8, Frank marched in victory into the gates of Berlin and the doors of the Chancellery. On August 10, the Prussian Communal Socialist Republic was proclaimed, with Frank as Supreme Chancellor. Meanwhile what remained of the Commitee made a truce with and fled to the South, hoping to combat the new regime.
    • MOD: You can't do that you don't control the Commitee of Safety.
  • Guiana Federation: Military and economy improves. Residential buildings look to be planned to build in some various city, except for the second largest city. Georgetown's population slightly growing up still, but it may expect there might be lows and highs. Meanwhile, military decides to recruit more troops if possible. Guiana Federation has not yet planned on its railway system, as that is not planned by the Government so it will be on hold. The roads are built in some cities, while some ships are almost completed in one of the ports.
  • Peru:We still fight the bolivians but we also ask peace from them we also keep modernising.
  • Bora Bora: We continue westernising off of Japan and Australia. We offer $30,000 for any old frigate a nation is willing to sell. We also ask to buy rifles from Westralia or Australia in order to study them. The king in childish naïveté, declares Polynesian the official religion of Bora Bora, We start to reconvert the islands.
    • MOD: Not really plausible since Bora Bora has been Christian for so much time now.
    • Bora Bora: Polynesian still held some grip at this time period. And even if that was true, the kid who was raised under Tahitian traditions wouldn't know that.
  • Indian Empire: The Indian Defence Council mobilises all personnel as a result of attacks in major cities. Indian Police carry out major operations throughout the country, retaking hundreds of rural villages. The army continues to step up security measures and </span>has reassumed control of all major towns and cities. An estimated 800 members of Ansar Al Deen have been captured and sent to a new prison in the Himalayan Mountains. 600 of them are currently on trial. A militia of 6,000 men has been stopped from entering Kandahar. Indian forces surrounded the attackers and took thousand of prisoners. These too will be sent to the new prison in the Himalayas.Border Patrol personnel have found large amounts of smuggled weapons on the border with Afghanistan. Indian insists that to stop illegal activity and smuggling over the border, India has to maintain 5,000 border service men on the border. It will withdraw all other military personnel to a position 20 miles away if Pakistan does too. Indian Intelligence has had several breakthroughs leading to the 800 arrests of suspects of recent attacks. Last night 15,000 protesters filled the parliamentary district of Delhi, calling for the removal of Jamaat-e-Islami from government. In regional elections they have failed to win many seats but they still have some power in Delhi. The protesters called for the party to be banned and its leaders arrested. The senate later defended the party, with the President saying Our country is a democratic one. One of peace and harmony. One of many religions, one of many people. This is why, from day to day we live in relative safety. Our nations' core foundations lie upon freedom, democracy and equality; for this is the reason we gained our independence. Thousands died fighting for this freedom - the right to choose our own future. This choice is owed to all. To take away this freedom and this choice from some, goes against everything ,we as a nation have achieved.
    • Afghan Dip: We have set up a peace treaty in hope of stopping a war.
  • Patagonia: The army improves once again under the new Marshal, as well as the economy under the King. Still, problems between the King and the Mapuches continue to grow.
  • Russian Empire: The economy continues to grow, as the main war effort has worn down. Russian forces currently occupy Xianjiang, Mongolia, Inner Mongolia, and Heilongjiang. The Duma passes a law, which the Emperor signs, declaring the extension of Russian rights to the newly conquered people. Once again, we offer a peace with China, in exchange for temporary food support. (MOD). We continue to support our associated states (Romania, Slovakia, and Yugoslavia) by training their militaries and providing economic support. Poland's Sejm is currently led by a liberal party associated with the Russian Party for National Progress, while Finland's Parliament is currently led by a conservative party affiliated with the Conservative Party.
  • France: Public opinions see the remarks of the Toucolour Empire, with anti-european atitudes similar to the former Chinese regime and massacre of oposition shocks the urban population. Demands for intervention and civilization to be imposed over these lands are heard from across the nation, and the Parliament approves military action. The 50,000 regular troops stationed in French West Africa start invading, while the fleets blocking the coast start firing against the sea-cities and the 50,000 troops in the ships start disembarking across the border. Another 100,000 national guard troops, that were formerly in Germany, are sent to help in the war. Support for the opposition against this non democratic regime is supported, and military action is aimed against the men loyal to the Toucolour and not any civilians. Catholic missionaries are also sent to start convertion of the local population. Napoleon IV attends the first class of the Naval Studies Academy in Marseille, and has greatly increased the funding for the institution. Also, under recomendation of the Chief of Staff, the Military Studies Academy, which aims for the same thing as the Naval one, except that for land combats, is founded in Paris. Marshals and officers that fought in the Mexican Intervention, the United States War, the War in China and many other conflicts start passing their experience to new officers, that go to the field with great tactical possibilities. Due to the request of the governors, any citizen of France, or one of its protectorate/client states, may apply to study at the military academies. Mexican and Quebecois officers are among the firsts to apply to courses in the Academy, while the Cabinet seems interested in the possibility of creating another branch of the Institution, to accomodate the new income of students. Since the declaration of war, weapons industry starts a small increase, although private investiment in consumer goods are more significant. French industrial products are seen across Mexico, Quebec and all of the French colonies, while agricultural goods and mineral goods flood the French shelves. The government, disgusted by the act made by the Confederates at the US Capitol, offers a peace treaty, for France only, with the United States: it will request that a plebiscite is held in all the states formerly under Mexican control before the Mexican-American War of 1848 if they wish to join Mexico with the same rights they have under the US or keep as a US state. (Also any citizen in the states that wish to join will be allowed to return to America), and the US government recognizes the Kingdom of Quebec as the border proposed in the Harisburg Treaty. (MOD RESPONSE) Supplies are sent to Egypt through Ethiopia and to Greece, and all states under Russian protection in territories formerly held by South Germany are granted recognition and embassies are established.
    • ​France OOC: (MOD REQUETS - From last turn, repeated) 1. The government also keeps suppling the rival factions in the Toucolour Empire, provoking them to rebellion, stating that the 50,000 troops stationed in French West Africa, and the 50,000 at the naval blockade, will support them if they agree to become a French Protectorate under French West Africa. 2. Supplies are sent to Egypt, and the Emperor sent a (SECRET) letter to the Khedive, offering French intervention against the Ottomans should they require (SECRET END). 3. The government has sent a (SECRET) letter to the King of Morocco, offering support for a modernization of the local economy and military, and also of a colonization effort, should it become a French Protectorate. (SECRET END)  
    • STR(Im gonna shorten second texan republic to STR from now on) We see France an military ally in the war against America, and because of this, we will aid the French in any struggles they have in there rightful place in Western Africa, even to the point of sending troops to the continent.
    • MOD: Implausible. Texas is land-locked, and you have no guarantees that the Confederacy will help you in this endeavour. ~Tim
  • Toucouleur Empire: With this open and unprovoked attack by France against our nation, we mobilize the Anti-colonial league. We mobilize our 90,000 troops and also expand to include some militia forces of around 10,000 men. Our Vassals raised 10,000 men each and Samori’s state raised 30,000 troops . The small kingdoms of Dahomey, Oyo, Benin and Aro Confederacy each raise 5,000 troops each. The kingdom of Wolof send 10,000 troops as they are out on the front line. The  Sultanate of Damagaram, Kingdom of Ashanti and Dendi send each 20,000 troops while the kingdom of Kanem Bornu send 30,000 troops. Finally the Sokoto Caliphate send 50,000 troops. We raise a total of 330,000 troops to defeat France and crush their armies. We continue to develop all our industries, we use the 5,000 troops within French West Africa to partake in guerilla warfare. We request New Brussels to send troops for this war.
    • OOC Hawai'i: I know I'm not a mod, but I'm not too sure if you can control the NPCs in the Anti-Colonial League.
    • MOD: You can call for the League to mobilise, but there are no guarantees that they will react in accordance with your wishes.

1879

Prince Kamehameha of the Kingdom of Hawai'i is welcomed to Perth as a guest of the Federal Government, and is enrolled in Perth's top and oldest private boy's school, Hale School.

News is released in January that Shōgun Tokugawa Yoshinobu has died from his injuries. An investigation is launched into the assassination of the Shōgun. Yoshinobu left no children, as his only son, Tokugawa Takachiyo, died in 1865 aged 5. The Emperor declares that in order to "stabilise the Empire", he will take full control of the country, and the government is to move to Kyoto. Rumours begin to circulate that Emperor Mutsuhito himself was responsible for ordering the assassination, in an effort to seize full power for himself.

Meanwhile, in Korea, ultra-reactionary elements in the Gyeongsang Province have seized the opportunity presented to them by the Emperor's tour of the Yeongnam region. An attempt on his life is carried out, leaving the Emperor with only minor injuries due to the use of largely ineffective pre-Western weapons to attack him. The Emperor's already high popularity soars to greater heights, and condemnation of the attacks are commonplace. Anti-Japanese protest is also on the rise as the assailants have reportedly fled to Japan.

The newborn Prussian Communal Socialist Republic continues to grow from its new power base in Berlin. Although Coalition forces continue to see success in its operations against Prussian troops, more people only appear to take their place. The Committee of Safety is arrested by Commune police and General Erwin Renner is "executed" without trial by his captors.

With the United States on the brink of collapse, the President pleads with the Coalition for a ceasefire to last for the duration of the negotiation period.

Tension between Afghanistan and India is at an all-time high as Afghan agitators continue to target temples and border cities in India. It seems as if war could break out at any moment.

With the Committee of Safety eliminated, the Coalition has lost all support in the North, and North Germany continues to solidify under the leadership of Reiner Frank.


  • Westralia: We welcome Prince Kamehameha with open arms as he joins the student cohort and boarding students at Hale School for his secondary education, sponsored by the government. The Prince, for ease of identification, is asked to choose an English name for use in Westralia. Meanwhile, as we begin to recover from our precarious food situation thanks to aid from Korea and increased agricultural output, we slowly start to relax the rationing system. The irrigation pipelines are almost complete, as is the southern half of the national railway network, after years of planning and construction. Dates for the Federal Elections are set for February 1880. We recognise the independence of the Kingdom of Québec and dispatch an ambassador to represent Westralia in Québec, and we also recognise the new Socialist government of Prussia. We send an ambassador to Tibet to formally establish relations between Westralia and Tibet.
    • Hawaiian diplomacy: Prince Kamehameha VI chooses to be referred to by his birth name, James Kamāmalu.
  • New Bruxelles: We expand 10px east into Africa and begin moving people farther out. We intiate a government program of giving all families land of their own, as our nation has more land now. We continue to build the infrastructure, as the nation wide railway is halfway complete. We industrialize the ports, and add drydocks to create military and trade vessels. We create 10 more military vessels and 5 trade vessels and put them straight to use.
  • Hawai'i: our military and infrastructure improve. Modernization of Honolulu and Kailua-Kona continues, and our settlements grow. Prince Kamehameha VI sends a letter to his mother, Queen Ka'ahumanu IV, about his splendid arrival and welcoming in Perth. Prime Minister Kalakaua sends his regards to the Prince, the Westralian government, and the faculty of Hale School. With the introduction of general agriculture on Johnston Atoll, the settlement has become less and less dependent on shipments from the Hawaiian Islands. We continue construction of Honolulu University, and we continue to invest in our industries and education system.
  • Prussian CSR: With the ouster of the Commitee we now focus on our main enemy, the Coalition forces. Gradual rebuilding of industries and agriculture begin after the damages caused by the revolution, while a universal draft is implemented regardless of gender for ages 16 to 65, and begins to turn out new rifles and cannons to replace those seized bt the South. All major corporations were seized by the government.
    • MOD: Reconstruction on such a large scale, especially during this time period, is not possible in a period of war in which your enemy is invading your territories. Much of North Germany's weaponry has already been seized by the South Germans. Please revise. ~Tim
    • OOC Prussia: OK.
  • Great Korean Empire: The Korean government demands the repatriation of the radical dissenters, who are believed to be seeking political asylum in Japan. The Korean army tightens border control in the Sino–Korean, Japanese–Korean, and the Russo–Korean borders to prevent the future escape of political opposition. After two years, the administrative reform process is completed, with the provinces system implemented in the Joseon dynasty being completely abolished and replaced by the prefectures-system. Korean industrial complexes continue to be developed, with the industrial output experiencing exponential growth. Alongside this is the construction of paved roads, railway, canals, factories, schools, libraries, and residential buildings. Westernisation under the "Western bowl, Eastern rice" policy continues as Western attire and architecture become more and more common but core Confucian values remain preserved.
  • Emirate of Afghanistan: The nation begins to work on industries. The country begins looking for any nations that are going to help them.

    • Ansar Al Deen: (Afghani spies) The group of spies are sent to India to rally up Muslims in an idea of Muslim Unity with Afghanistan. The group is allowed to set up camps in Afghanistan and train anyone who wants to join. The group mostly works in poor areas telling young people about the Munguals and how they can recreate them and bring pride to Muslims in India once again.

    • Jamaat-e-Islami: (Afghani-backed and created political party) Protests are held in Peshawar, Islamabad, Karachi, Hyderabad, and Kandahar calling to join Afghanistan. The group begins to work on aiming at kids showing them that they're here to stay and help. Schools are opened up for children and self defense classes are held for adults (male and female). The group begins to work setting up in Bangladesh. The group works on recruiting more members in India that are more easy due to India's action. sit in are made in Hyderbad and Islambad, where protesters work on making defenses by using trash and making Molotov cocktails with some members carrying swords as the number of members rise.Orders are made to not attack Hindus, But some members begin to burn down Hindu temples. After the burning of Temples people are put on edge leading to rumors of mouseqe being burned or attacked
    • Hezbi Islami: (Afghani-backed/made Jihadist group) The group is made in India, but most are trained and armed in Afghan camps. The group is ordered to attack military targets (mostly convoys and lonely FOBs). The group recruits hardcore members of Ansar Al Deen and Jammat e Islami. Rocket attacks are made on Indian FOBs in Muslim majority areas. The group begin to traget highways,raliroads,and brigeds .
  • STR We continue development of New Mexico and Arizona, and we start construction of railroads from Houston to Phoenix, expecting to take 7+ years to complete if there are no delays. Our troops are now occupying southern Nevada, and 7,500 of the 10,000 head to occupy Utah. We begin construction of 25 transport ships so we can start sending colonists and troops overseas. We recruit 15,000 more troops to add on to the 25,000 we already have. We request an alliance with France in order to ensure the war in the United States stays that way, in the United States. The slave trade has increased by 5%.
  • Patagonia: While the economy is still growing under the policies of King Jean I, the Mapuche population still oppose his social reforms, which advantage the Europeans over the Mapuches. This goes so far that an assassination attempt is made against the King, who survive, although three of his bodyguards die protecting him. In his anger, the King cut the job of most Mapuches working for the government.
  • Bora Bora: We reiterate our our offer of $30,000 for any old ship. We start experimenting with Hawaiian Designs. We increase basic infrastructure.
  • Guiana Federation: Military and infrastructure improves. Some more cities expect to have residential buildings, but towns might have few. Accordingly, the military looks to recruit about 250. It doesn't expect too much growth. In other news, the ships have been built in one of the ports. Supplies continue to help improve the health of the people.
  • Toucouleur Empire: With this open and unprovoked attack by France against our nation, we request the mobilization the Anti-colonial league.(MOD RESPONSES REQUIRED) We mobilize our 90,000 troops and also expand to include some militia forces of around 10,000 men. Our Vassals raised 10,000 men each and Samori’s state raised 30,000 troops . We continue to develop all our industries, we use the 5,000 troops within French West Africa to partake in guerilla warfare. We request New Brussels to send troops for this war.
    • Anti-Colonial League (MOD): We heed our brothers' call to battle and arm ourselves for the war to come.

1879.5

A new government, led by the Liberal Party, is elected in Canada. The Liberals are thoroughly anti-slavery, and the new President, Frederick Olson, issues a declaration that Canada has withdrawn from the war with the United States, and has signed a separate peace agreement beforehand. The President also states that Canada has no quarrel with the Union, and that the country will no longer assist slave nations.

The Republic of Araucania is proclaimed by Chilean nationalists, who promise that the racial oppression of the Mapuches from the old Republic of Chile is a thing of the past. Many Mapuches openly support the new Republic and declare their allegiance to it, in protest of Patagonia's apartheid-like policies.

Koreans continue to rally against the Japanese as the latter do nothing to repatriate those responsible for the assassination attempt on Emperor Gojong.

As a result of Canadian withdrawal from the Second North American War, many slaves attempt to escape from their masters and flee to Canada, in the hope that they can secure (or re-secure, as the case may be) their freedom. Protests continue in border states of the Confederacy.

The President of the United States sends a letter to the Texan Government, reminding them that their original enemy was the Confederacy, and that they had split off from the Confederacy in the first place. He informs them of the possibility that the Confederacy may turn on Texas at any moment in order to regain lost territories.

General protest against the excessive attack on Washington is on the rise in the Confederacy. Many see the attack as dishonourable and dishonest, and believe that it has damaged the integrity of the Confederate Government.

The group is ordered to attack military targets (mostly convoys and lonely FOBs). The group recruits hardcore members of Ansar Al Deen and Jammat e Islami.

    • INDIA THIS IS FOR YOU Treaty of Islamabad (Emancipation Map Game)
    • SO IMPLAUSIBLE; SEE TALK PAGE OF YOUR RIDICULOUS TREATY. MOD!
  • South Africa: Does the same stuff.
    • MOD: Please give more detail to each turn, and write your country's responses to events relevant to it. I realise you obviously have other commitments, but please try not to play half-heartedly.
  • Hawai'i: Our military and infrastructure improve. Modernization of our cities continues, and our settlements grow. With the results from our technology expedition back, we now have sufficient notes, sketches, and plans for improved firearms (i.e. rifles), steam engines, frigates, and steamboat hulls and structures. (Plausibility check?) Continuing construction of Honolulu University, we invest more in our education system and open more schools. Our first railroads are constructed on the Lana'i plantation, though only used for pump cars by workers until locomotives can be built.
    • MOD: Plans are fine, but it'll take you some time to decipher them. ~Tim
  • Russian Empire: In preparation of next year's elections, the four major political parties are seen campaigning throughout the nation. While the Party for National Progress is extremely popular, the Conservative Party sees itself having more funding from the nobles and therefore, more ability to campaign. The Russian National Congress and Democratic Labor Front both remain on the outskirts, but are popular among populist-leaning voters in urban areas. The integration of Xianjiang, Mongolia, and Heilongjiang continue despite their de jure belonging to China. We offer peace with China on current terms and providing them with food as they continue to have a famine due to their five-year plan. (MOD!) Our agriculture continues to improve massively, as do the factories throughout the nation.
    • China (MOD): We graciously accept their terms, and thank Russia for its merciful offer.
  • Papal States: Pope Leo XIII issues a new encyclical, condemning communism and its excesses, but also noting the shared opposition to self-centred unfettered capitalism. The Legate to New Bruxelles, annoyed that his requests to the government have gone unanswered, once again asks the King of New Bruxelles for permission to build a regional seminary for young native and colonist men.
  • STR: We continue development of Arizona and New Mexico, and continue construction of the railroad from Houston to Phoenix. Our 7,500 troops sent to occupy Utah are still passing through the Rockies to get to Colorado. We see the letter sent by the United States as a ploy to split the otherwise friendly nations against each other, so we ignore it. We continue construction of the 25 transport ships, and expect them to be finished by the end of next year. We send 10,000 more citizens out west to populate the region. The slave trade increases by 3% this half of the year, with a total of 8% this entire year.
  • Patagonia: The Kind decide to send the army. 70,000 thousand troops are sent against the Chile. Also, due to the pression, the King retake Heiner von Kermann as his Secretary of State. Von Kermann being the man who gave the Mapuches their rights, the King hope that it would have a positive impact with the Mapuches staying in the country (because obviously not all Mapuches rebelled. If they did Patagonia would stop existing on the spot). The King invest money in the war effort, and also call his allies, the South German Empire and Argentina (MOD and Player response), to support him in his war, hinting that he will change his policies toward the Mapuches following a victory.
    • Patagonia (OOC): Why the Republic of Chile? I mean, Chile was the one oppressing them before (so the place is unlikely to like the Mapuches). Would make more sense if they called it Republic of Araucania or something like that. Just saying.
    • MOD: You have a point. Very well. ~Tim
    • MOD: By the way, if it was Heiner von Kermann who gave the Mapuches their rights in the first place, it is very unlikely that von Kermann will stand for the discrimination of said Mapuches, and will probably refuse to help the government, which now contradicts his values.
    • Argentina (MOD): Wishing to maintain regional peace, Argentina wishes to refrain from engaging in conflict with any nation at this time.
  • Japan: After a hearing in parliament over whether the emperor taking power was constitutional or not it was decreed an act of treason against the people of Japan to act in such a way, and parliament places all of the emperors family under house arrest. While parliament does more investigation on the death of the shogun and investigates the family tree to find the next shogun the regent in charge Katsu Kaishu, a naval commander who will act as the all powerful leader for the time being. His first order is to hunt down the Korean assassins that had possibly crossed the ocean into Japan some how. We work with the Korean government to find out as much as we can. We give subsidies to any colony that starts producing agriculture. We reorganize Taiwan and organize it into a colony. Investors from America, the CSA, and Canada continue to invest in industries within our nation causing a small boom in our fertilizer, steamship and new start up ammunitions industry. We send a brigade of 150 men to Kiribati equipped with modern weapons from South Germany. Our pineapple production has stabilized. We limit any passengers coming from the Korean peninsula and start a complex visa and background checks to prevent any possible dissenters from entering Japan again. College attendance is at an all time high with over 15,000 people attending at 10 colleges. We increase size of campus and increase the number of programs to send more people to college. We heighten government intervention into college advertisement and push for more college attendees. We begin building a western hospital in every major city with more than 750,000 people to add on to the 4 already existing in Edo. Because of the bureaucratic challenges of moving government to Kyoto we decide to keep it in Edo.
    • Taipei: Able to abuse possible government subsidies we begin working on tea farms and sugar cane plantations.
    • Kiribati: We begin production of coconuts and bananas. We start an immigration campaign hoping more Japanese people will immigrate to our lands after doing a census, out of 15,000 individuals living on all major atolls less than 10% were Japanese. We put birth limits on natives in our nation.
  • Guiana Federation: Economy and infrastructure improves. Meanwhile, the military is still recruiting troops. Although the development is not planned as usual. Supplies look to improve as well to keep people healthy. Georgetown's population is slightly increasing but not too much. There will be more to come.
  • France: Napoleon IV has called for new elections, assuring the democratic process of the nation will continue. The war effort against the Toucouleour Empire continues, with naval artillery firing against the military targets in mainland, while the troops keep pushing against the anti-European nation. The classes of the military academies are going well, with new officers being trained and sent to war, for better experience. The Emperor also announced his wife is expecting another child, although only next year it should be born. The people keep supporting the war effort, with donations for the soldiers being received everywhere. Napoleon IV offers to the Papal States to establish a seminary at French West Africa. Immigration efforts for the colonies in the Empire continues, while the teaching of the heir to the throne goes fully under way. Supplies are also sent to Egyptian rebels through Ethiopia, to Greece, the STR and the anti Toucouleour tribes. ALL MOD REQUESTS FROM PREVIOUS TURN ARE REPEATED, AGAIN
  • Indian Empire : India does not agree with some of the terms of The Treaty of Islamabad. It will refuse to hand over any land to Afghanistan. It offers a new treaty to Kabul. India proposes that it will continue to treat all faiths the same way, give equal rights to all followers of religions and improve the quality of life for all, no matter what beliefs they have. India will declare Islam as its second religion and will not invade Afghanistan. In return Afghanistan must not take any military or political action against India. Afghanistan must cease any suspected funding or support for extremist groups within India. India asks for an alliance with Korea, France and the Netherlands. The Indian Defence Council has began drafting up plans for immediate mobilisation in case of war. New powers will enable the Senate to declare a State of War immediately. By declaring a State of War, the Senate has the power to enforce curfews and restrictions. Most importantly the President may call upon National Service. All men between the ages of 18 and 27 must enrol in either the Army or the Navy (some may be given the option to join the Police, Border Patrol or Indian Military Logistics Corp. Some men may be excused on medical or religious grounds). The IDC's National Service Programme will hope to bring a further 6 million men to the battlefield in case of emergencies. All men between 18 and 27 will enter the NSP programme immediately by visiting their nearest recruitment office. Here they will register and be assigned a unit and an officer to report to. When the order goes out they will then join their unit immediately. The regular army, which now stands at 500,000 men plus the current reserves of 400,000 men could be aided by the extra 5 to 6 million men. Training programs have been put in place for all men in the National Service age, and some have began for men - after work, on rest days and holidays. The police service is still on the rise - its numbers stand at 100,000 men but look to rise. Border patrol unit numbers have doubled as the force now consists of around 30,000 men. The IDC's Territorial Defence Force continues as well to see more recruits. The force consists of 20,000 volunteers part time volunteers. The Indian Military Logistics Corp has began the construction of a series of defensive forts on the Afghan border. The forts, which will be assisted by the nearby bases and logistics hub built several years will protect India from the looming threat of a war with Afghanistan.
  • Swiss Confederation- Begins increasing working on infrastructure and starts talks on alliance with other nations to increase exports and imports of the country. Bernhard Hammer is elected to the Federal Council of Switzerland- Is it too early or unlike that he would be elected? . -Message if I need to change it or improve just beginning at this so help is helpful
  • Venezuela: Begins to increasing military. Cutting down rainforests to build plantations to help economy. Proposes trade treaty with France, Argentina, and Patagonia.
  • Toucouleur Empire: With the combined might of the anti-colonial league we hold against the French offensive. We continue to develop our industry, economy, military and infrastructure as our nation goes into a military-industrial complex form of an economy. We raise 10,000 more troops to send to the front line although they are only militia. For this war, we create our first military school based on the ideals of Samori and his tactics. We make the small amount of political dissidents “disappear” from the face of this earth.
