Welcome to the Miracle at Marne Map Game. 

The Point of Divergence is the Battle of Marne, considered the Miracle at Marne (OTL). From September 5th to September 12th of 1914. The Germans began a strong campaign to crush France during the first month of the war.

When the Germans had reached just beyond the river Marne they encountered large numbers of French troops as well as the supremely well-trained British expeditionary force. However, rather than the right flank of the German army being hit by the French Army, the German army did not allow for an exploitable gap between. This lack of an exploitable gap as well the 1st Army conducting a holding action in what would have been a major gap of the German battle lines managed to hold out and even make a few gains as the German left flank victoriously drove back multiple French armies.

With major breakthroughs made by the German Sixth and Seventh armies the right flank - particularly the First army - opened up an unprecedented gap in the German lines - too good not to exploit. This gap allowed for the French to make a worthwhile assault into the area, but a trap laid by the German First and Second armies allowed by a shift of French forces to re-establish a line against the German Sixth and Seventh Armies, turned this exploitable gap into a death trap trapping the French 5th army, and elements of the British expeditionary force. With the French 5th army destroyed, the French 6th army was forced to hold its ground as long as possible against the German First and Second Armies (with the French Ninth army begin pulled back along with Fourth, Second and First armies. This very disorganized line being re-established ended up with a 48 hour battle from September 11th to the 13th in which the French 6th Army was forced back into Paris with the British Expeditionary Force, and the remainder of the French armies forced to fight with their backs to the Seine River.

With this, the Germans were able to begin the Battle of Paris in which the city fell to the Germans in short order. The BEF was therefore evacuated unable to fight alone on a continent with a failing ally. The French summarily capitulated and surrendered French Equatorial Africa and Madagascar to the German Empire. Following this, the Germans and Austrians were allowed to pursue a much stronger and more powerful front to the Russians, and prevented the British from making any more meaningful contributions outside of supplies to Russia. By midway through 1915 and a costly stalemate for the Russians on the Eastern front a Peace treaty was signed between the Entente and the Central powers. Russia returned to a status quo, as did France, but the separate colonial exchanges remained between Germany and France. The British had lost their "Balance of Power" policy and officially began looking for new allies in a new volatile world in which the British were truly threatened.

1916

With end of hostilities from the Central-Entente War ending, and with a Central powers victory, Germany has become a direct rival to the British, militarily and industrially with a colonial empire that has nearly doubled in size in nearly 20 years.

However, Germany's victory has come at a great cost to its allies. The loss of more Ottoman territory has brought the empire nearing to its knees and the Austrians are feeling the various ethnic tensions and the possible split between Austria and Hungary into two powerful successor states.

France itself has fallen into disarray with many rallying against the governments decision to surrender following the fall of Paris, as well as the lopsided agreement the French signed in order to restore their homeland.

Russia, as well, suffers from public unrest as a failed war and lack of preparation for it has left many dead and sucked the public support from the government bringing many new ideas many of them hushed, about revolution. The first buddings of both Communism, and a republican movement begin to permeate Russia's population. This failure has left much of Eastern Europe's population outside of Russia vying for independence as German success over the Russians has emboldened the movements of secessionists.


Canada: Requests an alliance with the US. Starts to build up its navy with five submarines, ten destroyers and five cruisers. Creates a mandatory draft policy for future military engagements. Signs the "Free Immigration Law" into effect, allowing easy validation for citizenship.

  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We offer Canada an alliance.

Italy: Alliance with Canada is requested.

  • Canada: Accepts alliance offers.
  • Portuguese Dip: We offer Italy an alliance.
  • Canadian Dip: We accept the offer.

Portugal: The government begins to upgrade the navy. Three submarines, a cruiser and six destroyers are laid down. To prevent protests in the colonies the government grants them home rule with a representative to the Portuguese government. The natives and population in the colonies elect a governor and a House of Commons.


German Empire: The empire following its success in the Central-Entente war has parades in almost every city declaring the day the peace treaty was signed a national holiday. Many industries are turned back to consumer and other types of productions with an emphasis on farm equipment. With acquisition of French colonies and the emphasis being put on their development, Germany begins to subsidize people for colonial settlement hoping to increase the colonial populations. Areas like the Congo seized from Belgium during the war have their resource areas and mines confiscated and taken control of by German companies with their output being scheduled to increase significantly. The German industries now rivaling the British following the war see no need to be developed outside of the Ruhr yet and an emphasis of developing the resource capabilities of the colonies, and Germany proper with infrastructure being developed between the cities attempting to cater to an increased amount of automobiles and an increasingly urban based populace. The bid for increased colonial immigration is somewhat successful with nearly 10,000 people willing to go upon hearing the plans to develop certain specific industries in some of the Colonies. The main focus, however, of the German Empire over the past year has been a focus on the re-tooling of the German industry with industrial development taking place in the Congo, and multiple of Germany's African colonies. The German High Seas fleet for the time being is split into multiple battle groups with patrolling being done near German colonies. The resources hopefully to be gathered from German colonies are to allow the construction of a larger German fleet. The German U-boat fleet also begins conducting its own major operations of patrol throughout the Atlantic. Plans to possibly scrap the Zeppelin fleet are made. Germann von der Lieth-Thomsen, however, begins to see a different future with them and asks engineers to come up with an armored dirigible that could possibly be weaponized by the German air force.

  • Belgium: We strongly disagree and protest to the German empire from taking resources from us. 
  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small amount of German immigrants - mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again.
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in almost 2000 German immigrants.
  • Equatorial Africa: German control of this area is tenuous at best with almost 10,000 German troops used to begin securing the colony and prepare it for development by German corporations.
  • Congo: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with Imperial incentives bringing a few hundred German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing near 2000 German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as rubber and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred apiece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany.
  • Namibia: Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. 
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops.
  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We request to resume diplomatic contact with the German Empire.
  • German Dip: We will agree.

Japan: Japan begins to build up its military. Japan also asks Britain for an alliance.

Colombia: The Republic of Colombia continues to try to move forward in an ever changing world, the nation's exports were greatly affected by the Central-Entente war and as it comes to an end the Republic of Colombia looks to restore trade with Central Europe and looks to strengthen ties with the Americans and Germans, offering a trade agreement. Tensions between the liberals and conservatives grow. Efforts to begin military reforms are set forward, and a request to begin purchasing German firearms and artillery is made. Meanwhile, favorable trade deals are made to the states, Germany, and the British in exchange for increased investment into Colombian industry and resource exploitation are made. The government begins a series of programs to expand national infrastructure and to expand the rail lines in the country. Coffee and tobacco exports go well this year.

German Dip: We agree to this.

American Dip: We agree.

United States of America: The war in Europe being over, many question whether we should have done something. Trade with all European nations resumes, and a massive military buildup continues.

  • Mexico D: We ask for an alliance.
  • American D: accepts.

Spain: We begin to build a factory in Madrid. Research in gas weapons begins. Begins to build an airplane. Offers Canada an alliance.

  • Canadian Dip: We accept the offer.
  • Spain was just neutral in a world war. They wouldn't align with a power just right after the war.

Mexico: Monarchy rises. We work on industrialization.

Why would Mexico go back to a monarchy it hated without some sort of outside intervention?

Brazil: We begin a large process of industrialization and modernization. We begin to ask the USA for an alliance in exchange for any products originating from Brazil.

  • America: We accept.
  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We offer Brazil an alliance as we are both Portuguese nations and have been tied to each other. We offer to help train the army.
  • Brazilian Diplomacy: We accept your offer.

Austrian-Hungarian Empire: Following the victory of the Central Powers during the Central-Entente War, the Emperor Franz Joseph I of issues a statement from the Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna, in which he writes he is pleased for the outcome of the war and now is the time to celebrate the might of Austria-Hungary and her united peoples. Several military parades of both Austrian and Hungarian home armies are conduct throughout major cities, mainly Vienna and Budapest. Emperor Franz Joseph, being in his last years, is absent in many government decisions, and as such, he relies on the two Minister-Presidents of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, Istvan Tisza of the Hungarian regions, and Count Karl von Sturgkh of the Austrian Regions. They convene to discuss new domestic policies due to the end of the war. The series of reforms are known as "Reformen für den Großraum Reich, Reformok a Nagy Birodalom,  or Reformy pro větší Říše" (Reform for the Greater Empire). In these reforms are plans for both industrial, ethnic and military reforms, the first being solving the ethnic question that plagued Franz Joseph I during his active years and was subject to much deliberation for many Minister-Presidents before them. They resolve to make German, Hungarian, Czech, Romanian, Serbian, Croatian, and Slovene the national languages of Austria-Hungary, but only mandate that three of the languages be taught in schools, based on regions. The first language will be the majority language spoke by the region, as determined by census. The second language will be the majority language of the largest neighboring region, and if the languages are the same, then the largest minority language will be taught. Finally, the third language is to be determined by the student for study before their graduation. The military reforms are placed on hold for the time being due to a larger focus on domestic ethnic and political needs. The reform for the political system involves the need for better integration of the Austrian and Hungarian parliaments. The call for development of common law issues the need for bi-annual parliament conventions, which allows parliament members of both Austria and Hungary to convene twice a year, once in February for a week, and then once in August for a week, where agreements will be made for development of common laws within both Austria and Hungary. The laws are not limited in what they overshadow, allowing for common economic, military and industrial laws. The reforms for military and industry are planned for later.

ROC: As Yuan Shikai is abdicated from the throne, our government begin a series of self-strengthening movements. Sun Yat-sen becomes the president and writes three books on the development of the republic, the three focused on social, psychological and infrastructure elements. As a strong government is slowly formed, less warlords are rebelling. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. We ask for an alliance with Germany.

Russia: The Tsar, seeing that with the war lost and his due to the Germans his subjects seeing him as less of a leader and more of a scapegoat, abdicates the throne and his son, Grand Duke Michael of Russia. He soon begins his rule by passing several reforms, calling for the organization of a new Duma with the minority groups such as the Ukrainians, Poles, Estonians, Finns, Lithuanians, Armenians, and Latvians allowed to send representatives to the convention in St Petersburg. The convention lasts for several weeks until finally a new deal is hammered out with the signing of the Pact of St Petersburg, which creates a Duma with two houses, with one having equal representation for each ethnic group, and the other being based on population. This helps cooler heads to take power over secessionary groups, allowing Russia to slowly begin stabilizing. The country is officially renamed the Empire of all Russians. The Monarch is to act as the Executive of the country, and may not declare war without an approval from the Duma.

It's Tsarina not Tsaritsa.

My apologies.

France: Begins on stabilizing the Small nation and officially withdrawing from the war. While this, instead turning toward the development of its Colonies. and the establishment of a new sphere of influence as well as the creation of a better set of defenses for Paris and France itself. The creation of new chemical weapons begins secretly in the depths of Paris and Bordeaux to avoid the news from escaping. Military and navy are built up. France asks Portugal for an Alliance.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans into the French democracy.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins. France, as well, offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southernmost regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans into the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government asks to buy Amapa from the Brazilian Republic for a fairly big price. As well, it would offer an alliance and aid to the government to organize and develop as an industrial nation.
  • Portugal Diplomacy: We accept the alliance offer.

Australia: Desire to unite with New Zealand grows. Troops are pulled out of Europe. We promise to continue supporting the UK in any wars it commits to. We offer an alliance with the USA.

1917

The first minor cases of influenza begin to break out in Europe. Austria's ethnic strife particularly between Hungarian and Austrians becomes more well known as more so the Hungarians and Austrians in their opposite begin migration back to their home countries. However, Austria remains surprisingly stable for now.

The Ottomans manage to put down local rebellions and revolts. However, increasing unrest looks to break up the Empire. They begin looking to their victorious ally for assistance. An Ottoman naval revolt breaks out as a few ships shell Istanbul but are destroyed relatively quickly.

Chinese nationalists begin suffering from warlords attempting to re-assert some control. However, it is very unsuccessful. Japanese buildup continue with their military managing to secure notable improvements.

  • Belgium: We start westernizing and build up our army. We increase our army by 0.25 and our Navy by 0.25. We ask Switzerland for blueprints or to sell us the rifles. We also ask an alliance with Switzerland. 

Spain: Factory is completed, research in gas weaponry continues. Begins to build the royal Spanish air force. We ask Germany for an alliance. Please check your grammar and spelling! Rcchang (talk) 00:33, October 9, 2013 (UTC)

Colombia: The military continues to undergo reforms aimed at modernizing the army and bringing it up to European standards. A request is sent to Germany to send advisors to help the military reforms, and to help build up Colombia's industrial level using the German model. Communist agitation begins to appear in areas of the country only to be violently repressed by the conservatives and liberals. The tensions between the conservatives and the liberals continues to grow with the conservatives gaining a majority of the legislation. Economic development begins and industrialization of the areas around Bogota and the Atlantic port of Barranquilla begins with private investment from rich Colombian land owners and traders who fear falling behind in an ever-changing world. More foreign investors are invited to help develop the Colombian economy and industry under plans of joint shareholding with Colombian private investors or the government holding a majority of 40% of the stocks and with foreign investors holding the rest expansion of basic infrastructure continues and rail construction continues. more Merman weapons are imported. 

Norway: King Haakon VII improves the economy and puts focus into building up North Sea oil funding. Diplomats are sent to Germany and Austria-Hungary to establish relations. King Haakon VII supports Finnish independence and guarantees support to Finland if they become a sovereign country. The King becomes interested in skiing and it becomes one of his favorite pastimes.

Japan: Japan begins to build up its military. Japan also asks Britain again for an alliance.

Switzerland: We finally start to build up our military to prevent Switzerland from getting invaded in case of future war. Some volunteers and troops join the Swiss Guards and they are equipped with more modern weapons.

Brazil: We continue to build up our military and border defenses. We also continue our industrialization. We ask for an alliance with the UK and whatever remains of France. We close our borders and shut down our ports and airports to outside interference out of fear of small cases of influenza reported in Europe.

Sweden: With the recent outbreak of influenza we allow limited entrance into Sweden. We put out a call to open up trade or alliances between any nation. We also wish to improve relations with local Scandinavian nations bordering us.

German Empire: The Empire following almost a straight full year of recovery and re-tooling of domestic industry resumes programs that promote a welfare state, protect German industry workers wages, and also works on extending the established German nationalistic pride, to a large colonial nationalism. The lower class workers or undesirable, are declared desirable for colonization in order to jump-start a German populace in all of Germany's colonies With large incentives being given to thousands of people to go to German West Africa particularly Congo and Gabon. The incentives are essentially large land grants for plantations. However, surprisingly the Krupp industry at the allowance of the German government set up its first mining and industrial operations throughout Congo beginning to mine out and use the vast resource riches of the Congo with predicted expansion to occur over the next few years to develop Congo into the industrial heartland of Germany's African possessions. The first German drills make their tap into oil in Gabon with it just being a curiosity. However, the project is meant for research purposes and only two extremely small wells are drilled. The industry in Germany proper also continues to produce parts for the German navy developing more ships for the navy as they work on the Navy's expansion. A few minor industrial companies and in a small part the Krupp corporation begins to invest in Colombia intent on exploitation of the nation's resources in exchange for money as asked for. German immigration to the colonies remains relatively low with only about 4000 people immigrating to the entirety of the colonies. The industry of the empire is improved. The possibility of a Trans African Railway is considered with Africa being considered the future for the German peoples to live in, as well as the empire in part to the vast resource wealth of Africa. The Kaiser, while initially not supportive, does see that living space in Germany could eventually become a problem and begins getting legislation together which forces many Africans off their land into other nations colonies to make room for German colonists and companies. However, instead of completely forcing them off with the military the Germans attempt a slow payoff of African leaders to immigrate to other areas of Africa and leave the German colonies. However, as successful as this is many do refuse to leave presenting a problematic situation for the Germans. The German Zeppelin fleet is brought in for upgrades. The Designs for a more well off and possibly armed Zeppelin continue.

  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small amount of German immigrants mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research.
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the Railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in immigrants.
  • Equatorial Africa: German control of this area is tenuous at best with almost 10,000 German troops used to begin securing the colony and prepare it for development by German corporations.
  • Congo: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporation along the Congo River begins.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with Imperial incentives bringing a few hundred German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as rubber and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. 
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany.
  • Namibia: Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. The German army is deployed en masse here with almost 15,000 troops being deployed in escorting many undesirables off the land in Namibia into British South Africa. 
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Colonists begin to arrive further
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops.
    • Austro-Hungarian Diplomacy: We request to co-produce a more modern fighter plane with the German Empire, so as to keep both of our nations as the forefront of aviation technology and warfare.
    • German Empire: We agree and request the Austrians send their top engineers to Frankfurt to meet up with out own
    • Could someone please answer my question on the talk page? Callumthered (talk) 06:24, October 9, 2013 (UTC)

Portugal: We discourage travel to areas believed to have been impacted by the influenza. Trade from these areas is barred. The government begins to look into purchasing or building several airplanes and tanks. The navy receives four new surface ships and a submarine. The rest of the the ships are still under construction. Army upgrades by 0.25.

  • East Timor: Settlers into the region increase, but the government discourages the displacement of the native population, instead buying large tracts of land and constructing settlements or leaving them open for mining and farming.

USA: The military continues to be built up, starting a focus on the Navy, creating a few submarines, and expanding its ship arsenal. Trade is slowed with Europe after news of the outbreak, and focuses trade with its South American allies. We also close borders, and immigrants will be turned back. These guards are armed.

Russia: Tsar Michael attends the first meeting of the new Russian Duma, and it passes several laws allowing for new railways and infrastructure as well as several new war factories. The first tank in Russia is invented, similar in design to OTLs British Mark I. Testing of better designs begins, while production of the so called "tank" is set to begin next year. Research into advancing the tank farther technologically begins. Several new prototypes have flame throwers attached to them, although those are still in testing and will not be on the battle field for at least two years. The Tsar begins to visit parts of her country, going along the Baltic coast and then southward into the western areas of Russia. The Tsarina also marries a long forgotten son of Stephen Báthory, who had ruled as monarch of Poland Lithuania, Aleš Báthory, he is 22 years old, while Tsarina Olga is 22 as well. The marriage is mostly political, as to make the people of Poland and Lithuania feel that they now have a stronger say in the actions of the monarch, however, upon meeting the two actually begin to grow quite fond of each other, allowing for a personal relationship to start growing between them, which will lead to, by the years end, the Tsarina becoming pregnant.

I cant find anything on this guy, mind posting a link so I can see. Also, much of the rest of Poland was ceded to Austria and Germany following the war, so he may not even be in a situation where you can get to him to actually marry him. #LivinLikeFeudal (talk)

I made him up feud. I thought that would be allowed as I couldn't really find any links to his other family members. DS|The Rainbow Machete 17:06, October 9, 2013 (UTC)

  • Russian Diplomacy (Need Mod Response): We offer an alliance to Bulgaria, Persia/Iran, Rumania, Greece, and Albania, however, seeing as Serbia is just a powder keg we send an envoy to Austria-Hungary stating we are not seeking an alliance with Serbia.
  • Bulgaria 9: No
  • Persia7: No
  • Greece 2: Yes
  • Albania 9: No

Austrian-Hungarian Empire: A majority of major military parades have now ended completely as the government under the two Minister-Presidents is both reformed and the military retooled. Emperor Franz Joseph I continues to be absent in many of the national affairs due to his advanced age, with many believing he will not make it to the next year. The two Minister-Presidents embark on several military and industrial reforms. They begin with military, by increasing the military budget by five-fold to allow for more spending and a more competent army. The Imperial Minister of War, Alexander von Krobatin, uses these increased funds to resupply the army with various rifles (Such as the Steyr-Mannlicher M1895), service pistols for both infantry and cavalry (Steyr M1912, Roth-Steyr M1907, Rast-Gasster M1898), and machine guns for infantry (Scwarzlose MG M.07/12). In addition to this, the Minister of War begins to retrain many of the Austrio-Hungarian officers due to their incompetance during the initial and ending stages of the Central-Entente War, by creating new requirements for acceptance as an officer, and new requirements of training. The main addition regarding acceptance is the ability to read and write in three languages, and be able to read in one additional language, to account for the multiple nationalities of the Empire. The main addition regarding training is an addition six-months that is used to teach military theory, formations and tactics, and effective use of supply lines. Several new officer training and aviation training schools are constructed as well. In the part of industrial reforms, they begin by subsidising various private companies such as Steyr Mannlicher, Astra Automobile, Ganz Works, Skoda Works, Csepel Automotive, Cosulich Line, Magomobil, Lohner-Werke, and Wiener Neustadter Locomotive in order to allow for their industrial centers to expand, mainly to Galicia in Cisleithania, in order to provide jobs, incomes, and relieve the various famines and poverty of the area, and already, several factories are being constructed in Galicia. 

  • Austro-Hungarian Diplomacy (1 We are forced to agree.): We send our "July Ultimatum" back to the Serbian government following our victory of the Central-Entente War, with all the nine points that they agreed to previously before the war, omitting the fifth point that they rejected previously. (OTL).
      1. Suppress all publications which "incite hatred and contempt of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy" and are "directed against its territorial integrity".
      2. Dissolve the Serbian nationalist organisation "Narodna Odbrana" ("The People's Defense") and all other such societies in Serbia.
      3. Eliminate without delay from schoolbooks and public documents all "propaganda against Austria-Hungary".
      4. Remove from the Serbian military and civil administration all officers and functionaries whose names the Austro-Hungarian government will provide.
      5. Bring to trial all accessories to the Archduke's assassination and allow "Austro-Hungarian delegates" (law enforcement officers) to take part in the investigations.
      6. Arrest Major Voja Tankosic and civil servant Milan Ciganovic who were named as participants in the assassination plot.
      7. Cease the co-operation of the Serbian authorities in the "traffic in arms and explosives across the frontier"; dismiss and punish the officials of the at Shabatz Loznica frontier service, "guilty of having assisted the perpetrators of the Sarajevo crime".
      8. Provide "explanations" to the Austro-Hungarian government regarding "Serbian officials" who have expressed themselves in interviews "in terms of hostility to the Austro-Hungarian government".
      9. Notify the Austro-Hungarian government "without delay" of the execution of the measures comprised in the ultimatum.

ROC: We begin crushing warlords with our army. The Huangpu Military Academy is built and hundreds of officials are pumped out and sent to fight. We begin strengthening China and Sun Yat-Sen begin to rally to "Unite for Progress". As a strong government is slowly formed, less warlords are rebelling. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. We ask for an alliance with Germany.

France: Continues Stabilizing the nation, while this the colonial industrialization begins and Chemical weaponry labs continue working in Paris and Bordeaux to prepare the weaponry in case of a new war breaking out in Europe. While this, a few cases of the new flu in France begins to bring the government concern the government, the government immediately begins a protocol isolating infected people in research labs in southern France, and beginning to close the borders, The government begins establishing a few rules to avoid crisis and mass death in the Republic. Military and navy is built up, and industrialization continues. Influence of Venezuela begins.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans into the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government begins in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region begins industrializing, with aid of French companies
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins France as well offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans onto the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking to buy Amapa from the Brazilian Republic for a fairly big price. as well it would offer an alliance and aid to the government to organize and develop as an industrial nation.

Canada: Starts developing a vaccine against the Spanish Flu. Continues to build up marines. Increases industry. Prohibitis residents from traveling to other nations without proof of vaccination. Announces major medical discovery to the world, and estimates that it should be available on the market by 1918. Increases industry by promoting factory work and highlighting high payment.

1918

The influenza continues to infect people worldwide with near 150 million people estimated to be infected worldwide and millions dying especially in Africa and Asia. The abnormally fast research by Canadian scientists into a vaccine has failed with a more deadly strain of the disease emerging in the Americas and Europe particularly France, Germany and the UK. 

Infections in Russia increase drastically as well with an unnamed Communist leader gathering large amounts of support throughout the country saying that Russian imperialism has led to nothing but failure and that measures need to be taken. Many people also begin to take up the Republican movement who see the Tsardom as an outdated concept and wish to put a prime minister and more structured Duma in power with either a removed Tsar, or figurehead Tsar. A Tsarist faction also begins to develop as well with many nobles and people as well establishing a near equal movement of Pro-Tsarists in the government. The three factions, however, remain unarmed for now.

The Ottoman Empire begins to suffer worse issues and once again requests assistance of its main ally, Germany, and begins deploying its military forces against rebels and revolters in the country.


  • Belgium: We finally let Germany to take our resources, etc. We make a golden crown to the German Empire. The crown says "King of Kings". We also start westernizing and increase our army and navy by 0.25. 

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and asks Britain again for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government begins funding research into the influenza.

Spain: Closes off borders and begins a border patrol unit these guards an armed and sometimes aided by artillery. begins to build tanks and completes the air force.

Colombia: Industrialization around Bogota and Barranquilla continues, and the construction of railways throughout the country continues. More German Imports and advisors are brought to Colombia ad the modernization and expansion of the armed forces continues. Immigration from Europe is temporarily stopped as the inffluenza grows. The yearly crops are good allowing more investments into industrial expansion. An ambitious program to exand the country's health and education system is brought forward and approved by a majority of the senate, but it is placed in steps for a total period of 20 years. A trade offer is made to Britain and France, but Colombian officials warn against the expansion of French influence into Venezuela and the region fearing that they will bring European problems to the New World. Research into chemical weapons begins as well along with efforts to improve Colombian education and university standards.

  • France D: We agree to the trade offer.

Australia: As desire to merge with New Zealand grows, a request to formally merge the two Dominions is sent to the UK, and a request for a governmental merger with New Zealand, both of which have effectively the same result. Government posters raising awareness about the influenza, and telling people to avoid crowds, and be hygienic. We also attempt to create a vaccine, but this is not considered likely to be finished quickly. Ships from infected countries are placed in quarantine for a few weeks before being allowed to dock, to ensure that no one on-board has the Flu. A scientist, having just finished an experiment involving the effects of certain bacteria on bread, goes on holiday.

  • UK: We will agree to this merger over a period of ten years to facilitate an easy, painless transition as well as to handle any issues between the two dominions along the way.

Norway: King Haakon VII still waits on responses from the diplomats sent to Germany and Austria-Hungary. Funding continues to be put into finding and developing upon the North Sea oil, hoping to improve the economy with the profits. Scientists are requested to start developing a vaccine for the Spanish Flu. King Haakon VII calls upon the countries of the world to work together to develop a vaccine.

  • German Dip: Germany agrees to establish relations but also asks Norway to participate in research on the practicality and usage for oil as fuel or other possible uses. We hope to establish a very good working relationship with Norway.

USA: To prevent massive deaths from the flu, people infected are told to wear masks and leave their homes only if necessary (food, etc). We call upon the world's nations to join together to find a cure. The military continues to grow, and trade with South America and Australia, and limited trade with Europe, adopting the Australians policy of quarantining TRADE ships. Immigrants are still sent back.

Portugal: The government declares a ban on trade ships from Germany and Russia and quarantines ships from the UK and France for a month. Immigration is halted and immigrants are returned to their homelands. The government authorizes the research of a vaccine. 27 million USD are given.

The remaining military ships are completed, and the government grants complete home rule to the colonies. In exchange they join the Portuguese Commonwealth.

  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We propose forming an international research group to find a cure an vaccine for the virus.

ROC: We begin crushing warlords with our army. The Huangpu Military Academy is built and hundreds of officials is pumped out and sent to fight.  We build our parliament and begin to vote for our offcial language. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. We ask for an alliance with Germany.

Russia: With the formation of factions the Republican faction begins to co-operate with the pro-Tsarist faction, supporting the formation of a more powerful Duma and the Tsar releasing his control of the military to a Department of Defense which would be made up of Duma members. The Tsar meets with the new coalition and begins to agree to restructure the Duma next year.

German Empire: The Empire alarmed by the growing issues with the influenza imposes a self quarantine and Mobilizes much of its military to the French border, Danish border, and Russian border intent on preventing large scale influx of infected persons. Along with this, the German navy isolates Germany's major ports and searches every ships for infection before it is allowed to dock. German forces also moderately patrol of the borders with Austria using the mountains as a natural barrier to prevent the influx of infected. Research on a vaccine begins as well. German industry begins an increased amount of munitions and weapons production in case of Internal rioting from the disease. The German Air force also continues its research into a heavily armed Zeppelin. We begin the research into a new modern aircraft with Austria-Hungary. German immigration discouraged from immigrating to the United States begin to more heavily migrate to the colonies seeing an increased opportunity as Germany increasingly takes the world stage economically and militarily. Almost 25,000 people Immigrate to the colonies with most of them going to Cameroon and Namibia (South-West Africa). The German military with the influenza situation increases its standing military to almost 600,000 - almost 100,000 more than the previous year with possible increases until the disease ends. With this troop increase the Germans are able to send 50,000 experienced WW1 troops to the Ottoman empire particularly Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Iraq areas in order to help the Ottomans with some of their internal issues. German industry is increased.

  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small amount of German immigrants mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research. German settlements relatively new are isolated and secured as are many French settlements as inoculations to natives are given. However, the deadlier strain proliferates killing many more than they would have saved had the vaccine been properly researched.
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroons agricultural base is re-activated with the Railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in immigrants. Soldiers isolate all German settlements and vaccinations to natives are given which spread the deadlier strain to natives.
  • Equatorial Africa: German control of this area is tenuous at best with almost 10,000 German troops used to begin securing the colony and prepare it for development by German corporations. However, the foothold begins to increase as German troops allow for vaccinations of the populace with the Canadian "vaccine" which actually turn out to kill more people than they're saving with the deadlier strain starting to kill the natives in droves.
  • Congo: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with coporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporations along the Congo River begins. Inoculations begin against the influenza with the Canadian "vaccine" but this is only done for Africans and the virus begins to spread heavily. German soldiers isolate the German settlements as well with the same process as Namibia to prevent heavy outbreaks and promote a quick response. 
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with Imperial incentives bringing a few hundred German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as Rubber, and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Inoculations given to natives with the Canadian "vaccine" are done thinking they work which only serve to spread the disease thoroughly throughout the African native settlements and tribes.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany.
  • Namibia: Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. The German Army effectively quarantines the German settlements shooting any who approach on sight for fear of the influenza. However, the Germans using the Canadians "vaccine" inoculate thousands of Africans who unknowingly take this deadlier strain of influenza back to their settlements and tribes with begin to spread like wildfire through German South-West Africa.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Further colonists begin to arrive.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops.
  • Belgium: We asked Netherlands for an alliance and a peace treaty. 

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. The situation regarding the influenza. Although the infection is beginning to enter into the region, only a few thousands use the vaccine as the others take a rather isolationist position even asking the government to close the borders with Spain, Italy and Germany and shutting down any trading with outside countries, yet the government denies said requests as currently this is what holds the Republic after the wars, and the government realizes that such actions would only complicate the situation of France regarding the global situation. While this, the warning of Colombia, although not important nor relevant to the French plans, in order to start better relations with the region it withdraws any influence toward Venezuela and instead begins influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans into the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with the aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins. As well, France offers to buy Somaliland from Britain. (RNG 9 No)
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southernmost regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government asks the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana. (RNG 7 no)

Brazil: As the infection spreads around the world, we decide to tighten the grip on our borders and kill anyone with symptoms of infection. We continue to develop our industry and military. We begin a military buildup along Paraguay and Uruguay to capture both nations. We also begin researching for a vaccine but it may take a long time.

Nope. You're not exactly politically stable enough to be taking those nations over. 

1919

The influenza makes huge landfalls in Africa and Asia as almost ten million in China and India respectively have died. Africa, however, with the influenza spreading throughout the continent heavily has nearing 50 million infected, and now 25 million dead, particularly in West Africa. The Sahara - to a degree - shields certain nations and colonies from the mainline refugee effect the influenza is causing.

The Russian political groups still forming following discreet declarations the previous year begin to grow in strength with a possible civil war forming.

The European and North American influenzas have infected near 30 to 50 million people. However, treatment prevents many from dying as well as quarantine measures. South American nations suffer as well.

The diverse Palestine area is temporarily quelled by the German forces in the area preventing any more ethnic uprisings for the time being. It's predicted to be a short term solution. 

White Russians, as the pro-republican forces are called, is legitimized with the formation of the White Republican Party of Russia in the Duma. The party has a majority and elects Alexander Kolchak to be their revolutionary leader. The party begins to militarize with the creation of the White Guards. They claim that they will not attack the legitimate government of Russia, which they still consider to be the Tsar. However, the Whites are very hostile toward the Red Russians. The Whites control a good deal of industry in Russia, and ask the Tsar to share his power 50-50 with an elected republican official. Since the Whites also control the Duma, they ban the Communist party. All Communist party members are fired from White Russian industries.

White Russian Diplomacy: We seek a political alliance with the Green Russians (Tsarists) in order to prevent the Red Russians from gaining any influence. We know that they will gladly overthrow the current establishment, made up of the political Greens and the economic Whites.
White Diplomacy: We seek the support of Germany, France, UK, US, and all other nations in our movement to disarm the Communist movement.
Japan Diplomacy: The Japanese government supports the White Russian's against the Communists, and sends military aid to help them out.
US Diplomacy: supports the whites.

Do not do that again. It is not your place in this game to be deleting turns or crossing things out.

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military and asks Britain again for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. The situation regarding the influenza: although the infection is beginning to enter into the region, only a few thousands use the vaccine as the others take a rather isolationist position even asking the government to close the borders with Spain, Italy and Germany and shutting down any trading with outside countries, yet the government denies said requests as currently this is what holds the Republic after the wars, and the government realizes that such actions would only complicate the situation of France regarding the global situation. While this, the warning of Colombia, although not important nor relevant to the French plans, in order to start better relations with the region it withdraws any influence toward Venezuela. and instead continues influencing Chile and Uruguay.

  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana. (RNG 7 no)

Norway: Oil profits start coming in, and the money is used to help develop the economy. King Haakon now turns toward developing the infrastructure of Norway. King Haakon also requests scientists in Norway research ways to more efficiently gain oil.

Red Russia: With Communists banned from factories, a flood of workers come out and fill the streets of Moscow and Petrograd. That is when Vladmir Lenin of the Bolshevik party rises up and gives a speech to the urban workers. "How dare THEY, the White Russian Bourgeoise, restrict OUR right to work and thus restricting us from being able to provide for our families, just because of our political views? Because of these injustices I encouarage all of you to seize the factories for US and to take up arms against our oppressors. If you join me I promise you land, labour and bread. Equality for all, workers unite!." With that the military leader of the Bolshviks, Leon Trosky, coordinated the seizing of key factories with minimum use of weapons. With the White Russians outnumbered, the Reds overran the factories. Now the Reds have control over some Russian industry and thus we are able to provide for ourselves and our families. With supplies secured, we begin to organize, train and try to gather support between Moscow and Petrograd. 

  • The White Russians call on the Tsarist forces to punish the Reds for their violation of the basic rights of proprty.
  • Red Russian Dip: Our violation of rights? You're the ones who denied us the basic right to work and thus prevented us from providing basic needs for ourselves and our families, not to mention denying us political rights. 
  • ROC Dip: We support the Communist movement in overthrowing monarchies and creating republics and we ask for an alliance with the Red Russians. We send some guns.

Colombia: Military modernization continues and conscription in implemented by the conservative government while  development of a local military industry begins, using German patents. Scared of Brazilian militarization the training in the amazon begins to help protect thenational borders and alliances are offered to Peru, Ecuador and Venezuela solely in the defence of Brazilian aggression while not constituting an actual military alliance (RNG, someone) . Industrialization continues and large amounts of funds go toward the industrialization campaign and to the increase of infrastructure, while efforts are made to keep the economy afloat through exportations of cash crops which is doing relatively well while the economy diversifies.

Austrian-Hungarian Empire: The current and now former emperor, Franz Joseph I, dies of a cold and pneumonia in his palace in Vienna. A large state funeral is held as his body is paraded through Vienna, Prague and Budapest, carried to each by train, before finally being entombed in the Imperial Crypt in Vienna. He is succeeded by his grand-nephew Charles I of Austria/Charles IV of Hungary. Now that a newer, younger man has been establish the Emperor-King of Austria-Hungary, the Minister-Presidents begin to act more as an advisory council rather than an actual decision making body once more. The first act of King Charles is to appoint his brother, Archduke Maximilian Eugen of Austria as the temporary military governor of Serbia until their political statutes can be figured out and to also help end the funding of Serbian nationalists. The increased military budget continues to allow for the production of multiple firearms for the rearming of the Austrian armies, and the increased investment into officer training in both aeronautics and land based warfare lead to two different large research projects, given funding from Charles I. The intent of the first project is the creation of a more effective Austro-Hungarian machine gun, and the development of a more faster and maneuverable Austro-Hungarian fighter plane. The subsidization of the private companies leads to increased factories in the Galician territories, providing sources of income for many people there, and reducing poverty and starvation. However, the starvation is more or less relieved by a more bountiful Hungarian crop which allows for direct shipments of food to Galicia.

Australia: We continue to use anti-influenza methods. We begin to exploit the oil in the outback. The biologist returns to his lab, finding the bacteria he was studying are all dead. Intrigued, he begins to test the items stored with them whilst he went on holiday. The slow merger with New Zealand has almost universal support across Australia. We ask for an alliance with the USA. We claim large chunks of Antarctica, and begin preparing for an expedition to the Pole. An ambitious plan to establish a permanent base on Antarctica is put forward, but critics say that it will be many years until it is feasible. Aborginial groups that protest over the exploitation of the outback oil, are given tracts of land as reservations, that it is illegal for companies to damage. Many of the reservations that are near pivate companies land are guarded by the Australian army, and have perimeter fences put up. In a radio broadcast, William Hughes, the Prime Minister, states that he is 'Commited' to preserving the Aborigine way of life.

ROC: We begin crushing warlords with our army. The Huangpu Military Academy is built and hundreds of officials is pumped out and sent to fight. Mandarin and Cantonese become the official languages and now will be called Northern Chinese and Southern Chinese. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. We ask for an alliance with Germany and Red Russia. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-begin many industries and build up the army. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it.

Russia: The newly formed coalition of Pro-Tsar and Republican factions officially merge to create Constitutionalist Monarchy Party, or CMP. The new party outnumbers the Communists by three to one, and the party passes several new laws putting the military under the control of the Department of Defense, a department within the Duma. The Duma may now override a Tsar's veto with a two-thirds vote as well, allowing for some checks to Tsarist power. The Tsar also meets with Communist leader Leon Trotsky, who favors socialism/Communism being introduced democratally, not by force. The Tsar agrees to appoint Trotsky to his cabinet to please the Communist faction, allowing a slowdown in tensions and a small bit of breathing room for both the Tsar and Duma.

You realise they didn't ask to merge, just to ally. White Russia has a player, so you can't just say that you merge without them agreeing. 

Last year I had them become allies, before Rex posted as White Russia.

Italy: The elections for the President of the Council of the Ministers show that Giovanni Giolitti is the favorite candidate, voted by the 56% of the electors.

US: supports the Whites and the Tsarists. Continues quarantine and limited trade. Military and economy continue to improve

1920

The Russian Red and White movements open in their first hostilities. However, while the Whites manage to secure people that wish to preserve their wealth as well as certain military members to join their side. The Reds under the Communists, however, manage to pull together a huge amount of public support with people from the Ukraine, to Tsaritsyn (Volgograd) all the way to the North in what is now known as Petrograd. The Tsar and his family manage to evacuate the former capital as the Communists manage to pull together a viable territory in the northern sections of Russia, and the White pull together in the south. With the Green (Tsarist) movement literally falling apart the military begins to choose sides as well with many of the younger, and less appreciated soldiers joining the Communists. The situation in Russia has officially fallen into a civil war as the Communists and Whites both establish their own viable armies

The influenza officially burns itself out with about 25 million in Asia, mostly in China and India dead, almost 45 million in Africa, about five million in North America, and about ten million in Europe with the majority of the casualties in the Balkans, Spain and Italy.

The Ottoman Empire continues to wage an undeclared civil war against its people as forces down the Arabian Peninsula are caught in engagements. German forces in Palestine are fired upon. A small revolt breaks out in British India over the disease which has killed almost ten million.

Canada: Continues to fund research to cure the disease and begins developing an anti-viral medication that can shorten the duration of the illness. Promises to give Italy a sample of the medication once it has been finished.

Your last vaccine killed more than it helped. Also, a true blue vaccine for the 1918 influenza wasn't in circulation until 2009. It's implausible.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation, The situation regarding the influenza. Although the infection is beginning to enter into the region, only a few thousands use the vaccine as the others take a rather isolationist position even asking the government to close the borders with Spain, Italy and Germany and shutting down any trading with outside countries, yet the government denies said requests as currently this is what holds the Republic after the wars, and the government realizes that such actions would only complicate the situation of France regarding the global situation. While this, the warning of Colombia, although not important nor relevant to the French plans, in order to start better relations with the region withdraws any influence toward Venezuela. and Instead continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.

We again propose an international organization to prevent another global conflict.

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and asks Britain again for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza. Military support continues to be send to aid the White Russians in their civil war.

Australia: We continue to use anti-influenza methods. We continue to exploit the oil in the outback. The biologist begins to study the items that the bacteria were exposed to, and after a short amount of time, decides that they must have just died, as they were only exposed to mouldy foodstuffs. He writes a report on this experiment, and then moves on. The slow merger with New Zealand has almost universal support across Australia. We ask again for an alliance with the USA. The expedition to the Pole has many volunteers, and we begin to put together a team. We begin work on a vehicle that can travel over the ice. The permanent base plans are being formulated, but critics say that it will be many years until it is feasible. A law is passed that effectively means the private companies, should they trespass on aboriginal land, will be fined, if they are not shot on sight by the army. We add to the Constitution, stating that the Australian Armed Forces will be used only in defence of ourselves or our allies, and never on the Offensive.

Colombia: The Colombian government continues to promote industrialization and economic diversification, with the funds for these programs growing largely thanks to foreign investments, Barranquilla beginss to grow as more head for the growing industrial area same with Bogota.  The Colombian government strongly denounces the Brazilian aggression and suppression of their own citizens and once more sends an offer for a containment alliance to Venezuela, and Peru (4 yes) . Meanwhile, the construction of defensive lines along the border are made to properly protect against any possible Brazilian incursions, and funds are sent to groups within Brazil to try to help them resist the dictatorship. The Conservatives once more win the elections and secure a strong senate and congress. Efforts to keep infected numbers to a minimum are made with widespread use of quarantining areas seen to be infected and efforts to control what is brought into the country. The military reform continues and widespread conscription is put into affect and a law is passed in the congress permitting this and making military service obligatory. The Germanization of the armed forces also continues, and weapons are in sufficient supplies to make sure all troops have one while artillery is being purchased in sufficient numbers. Attempts to exert influence over the small and poor Ecuador begins (it is a country of little real economic or military power so I think it would be possible to start exerting influence over Ecuador)

ROC: We begin crushing warlords with our army. More military academies are built. Mandarin and Cantonese becomes the official language and now will be called Northern Chinese and Southern Chinese. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. We ask for an alliance with Germany and Red Russia. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we rebegin many industries and build up the army. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it.


Red Russia: With a strong foothold from Ukraine to Northern Russia we organize ourselves into different units that are divided up into places and purpose. These include Muscovian Defense, Muscovian Offense, Petrogradian Defense, Petrogradian Offense, Red Railroad Forces, Red Farming Forces, Red Border Forces, Red Ukrainian Rural, and Red Ukrainian Urban. The bulk of our forces are Muscovian and Petrogradian Defense, whose objective is to defend the cities of Moscow and Petrograd at all cost. Moscovian and Petrogradian Offense objectives are to seize the remaining White Controlled Industries and in Petrograd surround the Duma and force them to surrender. The Red Railroad Force's objective is to seize control of the railroads between Moscow and Petrograd in order to send supplies and communication between the cities and to encourage farmers to join the Communist Movement. The Red Farming Force's objective is to defend their farms, support their families, and hopefully supply the other Red Russians. The Border Forces objective is to keep a strong defensive line along the Red-White border. The Ukrainian Urban Force's objective is to seize and maintain control of Ukrainian Industry and Ukrainian Rural Force's objective is to defend their farms and possibly supply the Urbans. Vladimir Lenin is officially declared the political leader of the movement and Leon Trosky is declared the military leader of the movement. We thank the ROC for the aid and accept their alliance.

  • Red Russian Diplomacy: We question why Japan and the United States, (especially the United States), supports the White movement when they deprived us of the basic rights of voting and working.  
  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We offer to support the Reds in exchange for oil and a guarantee that members of opposition parties that are not actively involved in the war be guaranteed protection from arrest. We deploy the NRP Vasco de Gama and 500 troops to monitor the situation.

Brazil: We decide to stop killing infected citizens seeeing that the pandemic has died out. We begin a massive military buildup against Colombia and request that the US assist us in the scenario of a war.

US: We don't support the Brazilians as we feel Colombia can better us more and we are saddened at there slaughter of infected citizens, stating it as "barbaric". We allow full trade, but immigrants are still turned back. Military and economy are improved. We support the whites, as a major Communist nation is the last thing we want.

  • Colombian Diplomacy: The Colombian government requests support from the USA to deter Brazilian aggression, and to help provide stability to the region, in exchange for increased support and an alliance special economic grants will be rewarded.
  • American D: accepts.

Red Russian Diplomacy: The White Russians have deprived us of basic human rights, the right to vote and the right to work. Without work we won't be able to support ourselves or our families, and we will perish. This is why we took up arms against an unjust government, just as the United States took up arms against the British Empire. We are not asking you to support us, but to stop supporting the Whites, as they have deprived us of basic natural rights of life and liberty.

US Diplomacy: We will support you in turn for oil after the war.

Red Russian Diplomacy: We accept this offer.

German Empire: The Empire makes a bold move in show of force and sends nearly 400,000 soldiers to the border with Russia preparing to move across the borders if the war becomes too much of an issue or starts flooding over the borders. However, rather than aggressively march across the border the military mans the previous trenchlines from the Central-Entente war intent on preventing this civil war from coming across the border. The Reichstag votes in a few of its first socialists. However, they are non-radicalized socialists intent on improving working life for some people. The Bundesrat at the behest of Kaiser Wilhelm II is extremely intent on appeasing the Socialists to a certain degree so as to not create a large scale revolution, but these conservative socialists only make minor demands during legislation concerning the workers and these are passed. The German Air force also begins a large scale buildup program continuing on making a new aircraft. The German population including its German national population in colonies reaches 72 million with immigration to the colonies continueing at a higher rate with nearly 27,000 people immigrating to all the colonies. Military is improved.

  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small amount of German immigrants mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research. German settlements relatively new are isolated and secured as are many French settlements as inoculations to natives are given. However, the deadlier strain proliferates killing many more than they would have saved had the vaccine been properly researched.
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the Railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German Empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in immigrants. Soldiers isolate all German settlements and vaccinations to natives are given which spread the deadlier strain to natives.
  • Equatorial Africa: German control of this area is tenuous at best with almost 10,000 German troops used to begin securing the colony and prepare it for development by German corporations. However, the foothold begins to increase as German troops allow for vaccinations of the populace with the Canadian "vaccine" which actually turn out to kill more people than they're saving with the deadlier strain starting to kill the natives in droves.
  • Congo: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporations along the Congo River begins. Inoculations begin against the influenza with the Canadian "vaccine" but this is only done for Africans and the virus begins to spread heavily. German soldiers isolate the German settlements as well with the same process as Namibia to prevent heavy outbreaks and promote a quick response. 
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with Imperial incentives bringing a few hundred German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as rubber, and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Inoculations are given to natives with the Canadian "vaccine" are done thinking they work which only serve to spread the disease thoroughly throughout the African native settlements and tribes.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany.
  • Namibia: Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire Eventually. The German Army effectively quarantines the German settlements shooting any who approach on sight for fear of the influenza. However, the Germans using the Canadians "vaccine" inoculate thousands of Africans who unknowingly take this deadlier strain of influenza back to their settlements and Tribes with begin to spread like wildfire through German South-west Africa.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Colonists begin to arrive further
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops.
  • Colombian Diplomacy: Colombia requests a formal alliance with the German Empire due to growng ties, and requests German backing in case of foreign aggression against the republic of Colombia.
  • German Dip: We agree.
  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We formally protest the massing of German troops on the border.

Austrian-Hungarian Empire: Emperor-King Charles I oversees the establishment of Serbia as a separate duchy under the control of his brother Archduke Maximilian Eugen of Austria, but it remains a separate territory from the the main of the Austrio-Hungarian Empire. The industrialization of Galicia through combined arms, automobile and precision mechanics industrial construction continues to reduce the poverty and famines faced by the region. Through the increased military budget, the Austrian armies are continually armed by the very industrialized centers in Austria, while the Hungarian army begins to lag behind, due to each Kingdom being responsible for maintaining its own army. The development of a more effective Austro-Hungarian fighter plane continues, as does the development of a more effective machine gun, designed to fire longer, with less overheating and better deployability on the battlement, being the main concern of development. Several meetings between both kingdoms parliaments leads to the adoption of the first common law in the two nations, called Zwei Parlament Gesetz der Steuern und Finanzen (Bi-parliament law of taxes and finance). This new law describes that new laws for excise taxes be uniform for both the Kingdom of Austria and Hungary, and leaves open room for amendments to the law based on changes to financial structures and tax bases of the Empire.

 1921

The Russian civil war officially begins with conflict between the Whites and Reds expanding as the Monarchy and many of its loyal followers and nobility begin to flee the country.

The full economic effects of the influenza are finally felt as severely decreased output in Africa has hurt many of the colonial powers reliant on native work are forced to cope.

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and asks Britain again for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza. Military support continues to be send to aid the White Russians in their civil war.

Colombia: The military continues its modernization while the Industry continues to grow (can someone put a yellow spot around Bogota and Barranquilla) thanks to government subsidies and private investment. consciption continues and the army is placed on high alert along the Brazilian border and defence lines and fortifications are continuously put up along with the training of the Colombian army in jungle warfare and guerrilla tactics due to the superior numbers the Brazilian army. With the defence pact confirmed with both Venezuela and Peru Colombia proposes a common market and free trade zone in the North of South America along with full military alliance (RNG please). Special privileges are granted to American and German citizens living in Colombia as promised. Infrastructure through the country continues to expand with rail lines connecting much the capital with most of the coastline now with Cali to the west, and lines are being built up in the interior along with roads into the south of the country, this is meant to help bring resources north and take supplies and troops in times of war south.

Red Russia: The Muscovian and Petrogradian offensive forces successfully seizes the remaining factories from the rest of the White owners. The Duma in Petrograd is also surrounded, and we demand their immediate surrender. Meanwhile, the Railroad Forces have moderate success in securing the railroad and try to convince Farmers to join our cause. Instead of them joining our cause, however, the farmers form their own faction, the New Greens. Their only interest is protecting their farms and are reluctant of the Communist cause. We do, however, open up trade with them, trading weapons for food. Meanwhile in the Ukraine, many farmers rise up for the Communist cause, but are disorganized. In Kiev, the Red Ukrainian Urban Workers seize some factories, but their advance is halted in the middle of the city and they take a defensive position. Along the Red-White border, we also take a defensive position. We accept Portugal's offer.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation, The situation regarding the influenza, Although the infection is beginning to enter into the region, only a few thousands use the vaccine as the others take a rather isolationist position even asking the government to close the borders with Spain, Italy and Germany and shutting down any trading with outside countries, yet the government denies said requests as currently is this what holds the Republic after the wars, and the government realizes that such actions would only complicate the situation of France regarding the Global situation. While this, the warning of Colombia although not important, nor relevant to the French plans, in order to start better relations with the region it withdraws any influence toward Venezuela. and Instead continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France offers supplies to White Russia.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins France as well offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana.
  • Portugal Diplomacy: We request to purchase 12 fighter planes. We also ask to buy 20 light tanks.

Australia: We continue to use anti-influenza methods. We continue to exploit the oil in the outback. The slow merger with New Zealand has almost universal support across Australia. We ask again for an alliance with the USA. The team going to the pole is selected, and training begins. We continue work on a vehicle that can travel over the ice, and will have one by 1922. The permanent base plans are being formulated, but critics say that it will be many years until it is feasible. We establish a base camp on the shores of Antarctica.

  • USA D: accepts.

Portugal: The government continues to monitor the outcome of the Spanish Flu. Borders are reopened and are under heavy guard. We send medical supplies to the Communists. The naval ships are completed and a cruiser is ordered to replace the ironclad as the flagship.

USA: Continues building its industry and military. Continues trading with the world. Sends supplies to the Communists in Russia. We begin to place men along the borders with Mexico and Canada. Immigrants are heavily restricted

Norway: Infrastructure continues to be built up, hoping to attract immigrants to the country. King Haakon sees the situation Russia is in, and decides to fund Finnish rebels and continue supporting Finnish independence. Oil profits continue coming in and they are used to develop the economy. King Haakon sends a diplomat to Austria-Hungary requesting an alliance. Scientists continue looking into more efficient ways to gain oil.

Austrian-Hungarian Empire: Emperor-King Charles I reaffirms the establishment of Serbia as a separate duchy by official giving the title of Grand Duke of Serbia to Maximilian Eugen of Austria. The industrialization of Galicia continues through government subsidies that are continued from their establishment by the two Minister-Presidents years before. The increasing industrialization of the region provides jobs and access to better income, as well as the reduction of the previous, and extremely deadly, famines in the region. The industrialization of Austrian Italy begins as further subsidies are given to mainly steel factories rather than more militarized industry sectors. The development of a more effective Austro-Hungarian fighter plane continues and will be completed next year, as will its adjacent project, a more effective machine gun for the Austro-Hungarian army. As much of the arms and uniforms are produced in the Austrian portion of the empire, the Austrian section of the army fairs better in armaments and equipment. The blueprints of Gunther Burstyn are brought back up during a joint parliament session, as he designed a tank in the years preceding the Central-Entente War (which was more advanced than OTL WWI tanks in OTL.). This leads to a renewed interest in his projects as fears of conflicts continue to rise with the civil war in Russia, the increased militarization of the of Austria-Hungary's neighbors, and the need for revitalization to be brought to the Austro-Hungarian armies. The race car designer, Ferdinand Porsche, is nearly finished with his newly designed race car for the Austrian automobile company, Austro-Daimler, and it is set to be completed and race worthy by 1922.

German Empire: With the increasing interests by the leading members of the German Empire and with support from many officers the extremely influential Paul von Hindenburg begins research with a grouping of German engineers and military officers (for military consulting purposes) begins research into more advanced and well off tanks pushing the upper limits of German engineering and with general secrecy from Hindenburg, the process of incorporating a Rotating turret in tank designs is used in order to allow for a more mobile and useful tank on the battlefield moving away from an infantry centric warfare in the event to avoid trench warfare seen on the Eastern front, and prevent the supply issues had with the German military during the push into France. This coincidentally allows for simultaneous development of an armored supply vehicle which doubles as a troop transport. The German air force also continues its designs for a new aircraft continueing abandoning the biplane concept and moving on to using a different engine, particularly and aero-engine like on the Zeppelin-Staaken bomber aircraft. Along with this a better and sleeker design is considered as well with less air resistance and projected top speed of 400 km/h. The German manufacturers particularly the manufacturers of the Mercedes automobile begin a larger more earnest campaign to produce cars available to the public for usage with the government considering given Automobiles more stock and talks for an improved/new highway system are put into the works. Mercedes engines are also considered for usage in an aircraft for military and civilian purposes. Immigration to the colonies continues with about 25,000 this year being the standard average across the years. Military is upgraded.

  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops.

1922

The Irish war for independence officially ends with Anglo-Irish treaty with Northern Ireland being retained by the British. 

The Russian civil war continues. The majority of the Tsar's family are captured attempting to flee Russia and are executed on the spot, Both the Whites and the Reds blame each other for the massacre. Only Michael I and his sister escape Russia with their lives leaving the entire host of their dead family behind. 

Ferdinand Porsche's race car designs come off the line. Austrian ethnic strife between Austria and hungary boils over in Vienna when an drunk Austrian man attempted to rape a Hungarian woman. A fight broke out which ended in a staggering loss of life of almost 300 Austrians and Hungarians died. The deadly fight was finally broken up by armed soldiers in the early morning and large amounts of burning damage had occured in a primarily Hungarian district of the city. 

The Ottoman Empire devolves into outright civil war with various independence movements gathering tractions and beginning an all out war on Ottoman soldiers and in some cases German soldiers. Turkey remains the center of Ottoman power and German assistance in Palestine, and Iraq has left the Ottomans with a stronger foothold. However, the Ottoman Empire is predicted not to survive. 

The German empire continues to remain strong. However, its populace is becoming increasingly afraid of the multitudes of nations literally falling apart around it with areas such as the Ukraine, Latvia and Estonia threatening to break away for independence. Ukraine, however, remains a near deadlock as Whites, Reds and now secessionists hold extremely different parts of the province. Kiev is nearly burned down in a battle between the three factions. 

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and asks Britain again for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza. Military support continues to be send to aid the White Russians in their civil war.

Austrian-Hungarian Empire: Emperor-King Charles I issues a statement from his vacation palace in Prague, stating "It is an utter tragedy what has taken place in Vienna, seeing that people united by blood, history and politics cannot formally stand each other". Due to these attacks, police forces are ever present in Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Bratislava, Trieste, and Lviv, in order to preserve order and prevent small scale ethnic conflicts within the largest cities with multiple ethnicities residing in the cities. The fighter aircraft produced by Austria-Hungary after much research is named the Aviatik D.IV, based off previous Aviatik D.I, and II designs, but now is able to fly farther, turn sharper and fly faster than the previous designs. The Austrian-Hugarian machine gun has also finished, as a variant of the Skoda M1909 machine gun, called the Skoda M1922 machine gun. It differs in its recoil system, which is not longer a delayed-blowback and instead recoil operated to allow for more rounds per minute as well as increase operating time before overheating to the point of uselessness. The development of Gunther Burstyn's tank continues in earnest, as many of his revolutionary ideas, such as an enclosed engine compartment, two arms on each end of the tank for maneuvering over trenches, and less of a rhombus shape with more emphasis on the wheels being at each side of the tank, though not as large as the vehicle itself. The design is also slightly smaller than average tanks for the time, allowing for faster completion of the tanks once the designs are fully built and adapted to current standards. Austrian Italy continues its industralization through government subsidies, increasing steel output. Ferdinand Porsche, his Mercedes Maja race car, winning 43 out of 53 races it was in, leads the Austro-Daimler company to offer him a ten-year contract to continue designing race cars for the company. The success of his race car has also led to several more automotive factories being constructed in and around the cities of Zagreb and Sarajevo to accommodate increased demands for the cars.

  • Grand Duchy of Serbia: Now, Archduke Maximilian Eugene of Austria, more or less fully in control of the newly Duchy government of Serbia, begins to use Austrian soldiers, and military equipment to begin a very strenuous crackdown on Serbian nationalist groups and people. In order to attempt to gain the favor of the main Serbian population, he issues new funds to the propaganda minister of the duchy, who begins creation of several posters which attempt to persuade the Serbian people to "rat out the rats" and "Preserve a system of peace and stability" by aiding or not interfering with Austrian and Duchy police and soldier actions. Being funded mainly by his brother, he begins to conduct reforms in the style of Austria-Hungary's previous reforms under the Minister-Presidents of Franz Joseph I. He begins with the industrial and ethnic reforms, changing the economic laws to favor industries that begin factories in some of Serbia's largest cities. 

German Empire: Research into new tank designs continues with the main one taking precedence as a medium tanks made for maximum efficiency. The German air-force also continues its research on a new plane with the previous proposition for designs passing initial trials spectacularly. This new plane is called the X-109 with the X short for experimental or prototype. The German Empire officially resumes large scale work on the Berlin-Baghdad railway and uses its 50,000 troops in the Ottoman Empire to enforce its will and begin major suppression operations against rebels on behalf of the Ottomans. With no fully clear rebellion force to fight the German forces essentially decide that patrol and suppression operations take precedence. The German immigration to the colonies reaches about 30,000 for this year with German South-West Africa (Namibia) boasting the largest population of about 56,000 with the majority of German immigration (turned away from the US because of the previous influenza) Congo, with about 20,000 Tanzania just under 20,000 and about another 50,000 between all of Germanies remaining colonies. This growth has allowed for major set up of industry in certain areas particularly Congo, and South-West Africa where a German population now projected to gain on the African population by the 1930's (because of the influenza) is growing bolder with land settlement securing previously inhabited territory and backing this up with military force. German industry in Congo sponsored by the Giant Krupp corporation particularly takes off with resource pockets being exploited by industries and some of the new railroads which had been constructed. The German resource rights in Iraq particularly its oil fields (followed the Urabi revolt in Egypt in 1882) are beginning to be exploited in the anticipation of the Baghdad railways completion. Oil becomes increasingly important throughout the German economy as a fuel among other things Industry is improved


  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small amount of German immigrants mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again.

Belgium: We strongly disagree and protest to the German Empire from taking resources from us. 

Belgium lost Congo following WW1.

За единую Россію

"For a United Russia"

(White) Russia
: With the official establishment of the Russian Republic following the fleeing of the state by the Tsar and his family, the White Russian Duma, under the leadership of Alexander Kolchak, relocates itself to Moscow. The Kremlin is used as the location of government, and begins to be slightly revamped to meet the needs of the Duma, and its president. We attempt to receive as much recognition as the legitimate government of Russia. We show the difference between European culture and Communism. Propaganda begins to be distributed. The Whites still have the benefit of wealth, and have a legitimate government set up. The army grows, with more and more people joining. We begin to fund underground resistance in pro-White communities in lands occupied by the Reds. We seek assistance from France, UK, the US, Germany, Austria, Norway, and Finland.

Colombian Diplomacy: Despite the lack of any real support Colombia can give it provides the White forces with full diplomatic support as well as offers volunteers to help fight the red threat.


Colombia: The continued militarization of the southern provinces creates a strong detterent for crime and lawllessness which previously existed in the area, and also brings increasingly efficient administration over the area with railways, roads and governmental management. As industrialization of the country continues and increased focus on the expansion of infrastructure, the government begins promoting a program to begin building up electric lines and telegraph lines throughout the country to facilite government and commercial fuctionalities. The military continues to undergo modernization and expansion with the continued importation of German and American arms and tchnology.  To further Colombian development subsidies and grants are giving to the educational system of the republic to help promote a larger intellectual group over the next generation, and funds are granted to develop the national medicinal and other scientific areas with the hopes of stimulating this intellectual growth. efforts to combat corruption. Once more Colombia requests with its neighbors Venezuela and Peru for the creation of aa common market and to remove customs tariffs to help promote regional economic growth and stabilization through closer ties ('6, Venezuela only agrees to remove customs tariffs, as does Peru Eiplec - ಠ_ಠ (talk) 22:37, October 14, 2013 (UTC)'). influencing over Ecuador continues as Colombia tries to integrate Ecuador into a common market agreement.

Australia: We continue to use anti-influenza methods. We continue to exploit the oil in the outback. The merger with New Zealand begins, and our governments begin to integrate with one another. The team going to the pole continues training. We have a vehicle that can travel over ice, but many still put more faith in huskies. The permanent base plans are being formulated, but critics say that it will be many years until it is feasible. We establish a base camp on the shores of Antarctica.

Norway: King Haakon decides to send assistance the Whites if they promise to free Finland. Scientists finish the research into oil efficiency. Scientists start working on military arms and technology. An alliance offer is sent to Austria-Hungary, again. King Haakon funds the pursuits into military tech. King Haakon sends an offer to buy Greenland and Iceland from Denmark for a large sum of money. King Haakon has visions of Scandinavian unification in his future.

(White) Russian Diplomacy: We ask the Norwegians to aid the White Russians. We show the expansionist policies of the Reds in hopes of convincing the Norwegians to befriend us.

1923

The Russian civil war continues as both sides refuse to engage in any true major engagements. However, the Ukraine officially manages to break away from Russia requesting international reocognition.

The Baghdad railway continues construction. The Ottomans suffer severe drawbacks against rebels in their arabian holdings. German areas are just as hostile. However, the German troops do not falter. Iraq begins to improve with the prospects of a developing economy putting the clamp down on many of the rebels. However, Germany's developing and ownership of the resource rights makes the area much more inclined to Germany.

The Austro-Hungarian civil war officially breaks out with Hungarians making the opening moves and securing a decent amount of territory and managing to seize and appropriate the entirety of Hungarian area industry to the war effort. The Empire itself is almost neatly split down the middle with many ethnic minorities choosing between the sides. The opening moves of the civil war plant Hungary and Austria both in extremely entrenched positions with about the same amount of military power. A unit known as the Royal Hungarian Shock Corps officially becomes known and makes an astonishingly brutal appearance on the battlefield. They are known for not taking prisoners and have a projected casualty rate of about 500 and rising. The opening shots of this civil war seem to be extremely bloody, but are extremely exaggerated in some cases. But even in this case it has become bloody by European standards.

The German populace, shocked by the outright civil war brewing in Austria, Russia and the Ottoman Empire begin a public outcry to stabilize the areas as much as possible. The British Empire reluctantly agrees but only sends support to the White Russians with the intent of letting the Germans spend themselves into oblivion by trying to stabilize.

The US populace remains strictly isolationist as it wishes to leave European matters to Europe.

African populations continue to suffer declining population growth as the Influenza has taken its full toll and dispersed many groups in Sub-Saharan Africa leveling the population by almost 43% (64.3 million)

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and asks Britain again for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza. Military support continues to be sent to aid the White Russians in their civil war. Japan also recognises Ukraine's independence.

Red Russia: As a result of the destruction of Kiev, the White Duma being set up in Moscow, the massacre of the Royal Family, and the destruction of railroad by an unknown person/group, communication had temporarily been lost. Communication is now regained, however, and Lenin receives the news of the Whites setting up a new Duma in Moscow, and responds with creating an official government in Petrograd, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or the Soviet Union in which there is a classless society where everyone receives equal pay and equal treatment, and where the community seizes the means of production. Land, labor, and bread is distributed among everyone and construction of hospitals begin. Meanwhile in Moscow, Trosky has been training workers in the underground and now they rise up and surround the new White Duma in Moscow.

That one would need an algo ...

Portugal: After the government receives word of the bloody massacre of the Tsar's family, we cut off aid until the culprit steps forward and apologizes. We recognize the Ukraine independence and offer to send in 250 troops to help defend the region.

The government continues the design of the new tank and the cruiser is complete. The ironclad, the NRP Vasco de Gama is pulled out of frontline service due to its age. The new warship is the flagship of the Portuguese Navy. We continue to update the army.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation, continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins France as well offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana.
  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We again request to purchase 20 tanks and the license to produce the Renault RT light tank.

Austrian-Hungarian Empire: The Emperor-King Charles I of Austria declares war upon the Kingdom of Hungary, and is quoted as saying "We must suffer like this to bring our people together again, but now the house of Habsburg shall rule one large nation, instead of two small ones." . Austrian army is quickly mobilized, and due to numerous investments made into the army and industry of the Austrian portion of the Empire, most every soldier is adequadtly armed, trained, and has more competant commanding officers. Archduke Fredrich Karl, ready for action since the end of the Central-Entente War, is appointed the field commander of all Austrian soldiers, and Emperor-King Charles I decides not to become the leader of the Austrian forces, and instead focus on maintaining the war effort at home. The new aerofighter, the Aviatik D.IV, with 30 create and integrated into the Austrian Air Force, begins to patrol the skies over Hungary with other planes within the air force, allowing unrestricted bombing of Hungarian military outposts and supply depots. The Skoda M1922 Machine Gun is produce is large quantities for use in the Austrian armies, the vastly superior industry of Austria allowing a much faster production of arms, uniforms, and vehicles much faster than the Hungarians ever could. The development of Guther Burstyn's tank design is finished being produced, but current estimates are that it will take a year before being fully integrated into the Austrian Imperial Army. In order to stop the possibiltiy of trench or extended warfare, a quick offensive is mounted against two Hungarian key cities, Budapest of Hungary, and Banska Bystrica of Slovenia. Ten Infantry Regiments, three field artillery Regiments, three Field Howizter Regiments, and two Lancer Regiments are sent to secure Budapest away from the Hungarians, and eight Infantry Regiments, two Field Artillery Regiments, two Field Howizter Regiments, two Mountain Infantry Regiments,  and one Tyrolian Rifle Battalion are sent to secure Banska Bystrica. This leaves 17 Infantry Regiments, two Lancer Regiments, three Field Artillery Regiments, three Field Howizter Regiments, and two Mounted Rifle Battalion's left to the immediate defense of Austria. (Algo's to come).

Regardless of the new plane, it does not give you unbridled access to Hungarian skies. An aerial war would be required, and not to mention Austria's military forces would be in complete disarray on either side. 

Is there an aerial war algorithm that we can use?

Too imprecise, also aerial combat in the 1920's isn't truly too effective.

  • Grand Duchy of Serbia: Archduke Maximilian Eugen of Austria continues his crackdown on Serbian nationalist groups, arrest over twenty people in the span of two weeks in connection to funds delivered to nationalist groups inside the Austrian-Hungarian Border. He continues to appropriate funds to the propaganda minister of Serbia. His newer industrial reforms lead to an increase of industrial output of the Serbian city of Belgrade. While he does not immediately declare war on Hungary, he begins to send supplies and about two thousand volunteers to each of his brothers' offensives in Hungary. 

ROC: We begin crushing warlords with our army. More military academies are built. Warlords have now solidified into a few states in China, the Yunnan Clique, the Guanxi Clique and the Tibetan Kingdom, which only controls Ali and surrounding areas. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 400,000 men and is now sent to the South. We ask for an alliance with Germany and Red Russia. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we rebegin many industries and build up the army. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. Our capital is set at Beijing to stabilize the North.

ROC Secret Dip: We recognize Red Russia as the only Russia and offer them a deal for military support in exchange for the return of the regions lost to Russia in the 1858 Treaty of Aigun and 1860 Convention of Peking.


Australia: We continue to use anti-influenza methods. We continue to exploit the oil in the outback. The merger with New Zealand begins, and our governments begin to integrate with one another. The team going to the pole continues training. We have a vehicle that can travel over ice but many still put more faith in huskies. The permanent base plans are being formulated, but critics say that it will be many years until it is feasible. We establish a base camp on the shores of Antarctic, and from there, the expedition sets off, with both the vehicles and huskies. They will lay a trail behind them, and there is an eventual plan to set up a road across the continent, to the pole.

Colombia: industrialization continues and light industry in the North East and around Bogota continues. the expansion of infrastructure is going well enough as health facilities are built in areas of the country which previously lacked, and the construction of new schools also continues. Railways throughout the country are expanded as are roads. The introduction of electricity to major industrial and urban centres continues. With the removal of custom tariifs trade in the North of South America expands greatly opening new possiblities for trade and creating incentive for greater investment into economic growth and diversification of the economy. Colombia continues to push for a common market with its neighbors and offers a free trade agreement to Germany, the U.K., France and the U.S.A. Influence over Ecuador continues and supplies are sent to Ecuador to try to get it into a common market.

  • French D: We agree for the free trade agreement.
  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We offer a free trade agreement and offer to sell the NRP Vasco de Gama to Colombia for one million USD.
  • Colombian Response: Colombia agrees to the free trade agreement but turns down the ship due to the cost which would be better spent helping develop the country or strengthening the army. However, the offer will be kept in mind for the future.
  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We ask how much the Colombian government would be willing to pay for the ironclad?
  • Colombian Response: The Colombian government responds it has no interest in purchasing the boat, but once more reaffirms its wish to secure a free trade agreement with Portugal.

German Empire: Research into new tank designs continues with the main one taking precedence as a medium tanks made for maximum efficiency. The German air force also continues its research on a new plane with the previous proposition for designs passing initial trials spectacularly. This new plane is called the X-109 with the X short for experimental or prototype. The German resource rights in Iraq particularly its oil fields (followed the Urabi revolt in Egypt in 1882) are beginning to be exploited in the anticipation of the Baghdad railways completion. Oil becomes increasingly important throughout the German economy as a fuel among other things Industry is improved. The German armed forces begins to institute a draft managing to pull in 300,000 troops previously trained from the Central entente war very easily and rearming them using their previous training as a base. These 300,000 troops almost 80% of these from the Battle of Marne, 150,000 German troops begin to prep themselves along the Austrian Border. the Remaining 150,000 troops are moved to re-inforce the German troops in the Ottoman Empire and begins counter rebellion operations in a greater swath of territory. With more open control of certain areas, the generals contemplate making local leaders sign protection and other treaties to make these areas into German colonies. The Iraqi oil fields continue being set up. German forces field some of their first prototypes of the new X-109 fighting in small numbers proving it to be superior to many fighters of the time. Another 200,000 troops are moved from the Ukrainian border to the Hungarian border. The German populace exposes great outrage at its only other remaining ally in a civil war and the German populace begins demanding the Austria and Hungary both be put down hard for their failure to remain coherent. The German generals and high command particularly Paul Von Hindenburg see an opportunity in the situation but do not disclose it. High command officially begins retooling certain industrial centers for war production once again and the German High seas fleet is fielded to the Medditerrenean posting itself off the coast of Austria. Military is improved.

  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small amount of German immigrants mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research. German settlements relatively new are isolated and secured as are many French settlements as inoculations to natives are given. However, the deadlier strain proliferates killing many more than they would have saved had the vaccine been properly researched. Gabon reaches a population of about 21,000.
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the Railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German Empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in immigrants. Soldiers isolate all German settlements and vaccinations to natives are given which spread the deadlier strain to natives. German population reaches about 14,000.
  • Equatorial Africa: German control of this area is tenuous at best with almost 10,000 German troops used to begin securing the colony and prepare it for development by German corporations. However, the foothold begins to increase as German troops allow for vaccinations of the populace with the Canadian "vaccine" which actually turns out to kill more people than they're saving with the deadlier strain starting to kill the natives in droves. Equatorial Africa reaches a population of about 5000 Germans.
  • Congo: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporations along the Congo River begins. Inoculations begin against the influenza with the Canadian "vaccine" but this is only done for Africans and the virus begins to spread heavily. German soldiers isolate the German settlements as well with the same process as Namibia to prevent heavy outbreaks and promote a quick response. Congo reaches a population of about 24,000.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with Imperial incentives bringing a few hundred German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as Rubber, and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Inoculations are given to natives with the Canadian "vaccine" are done thinking they work which only serve to spread the disease thoroughly throughout the African native settlements and tribes. Tanzania reaches a population of 20,000.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany.
  • Namibia: Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. The German Army effectively quarantines the German settlements shooting any who approach on sight for fear of the influenza. However, the Germans using the Canadians' "vaccine" inoculate thousands of Africans who unknowingly take this deadlier strain of influenza back to their settlements and tribes with begin to spread like wildfire through German South-west Africa. Population reaches 58,000.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Further colonists begin to arrive.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops.

Switzerland: We agree to sign the trade agreement with Belgium. We also ask France and Germany for a trade agreement. Increase economy by 0.25.

1924

The Austro-Hungarian Civil war continues with Austrian forces advancing lightly into Budapest and taking out the Slovenian city with extreme casualties. The Austrian troops, however, hit extreme resistance as Hungarian men of all ages take up arms flooding Budapest with nearly 300,000 soldiers and now militiamen holding the city in a show of surprising force.

The Romanians declare official neutrality in the civil war working to preserve what little peace the nation still maintains.

Ferdinand Porsche begins considering to leave for Germany but also looks into creating a joint German-Austrian company by playing the markets and businesses of both countries.

German Industry and engineering is recognized alongside the US and the British as some of the most innovative and best in the World. Germany still pulls in more Nobel prizes than the next three countries combined.

The Russian civil war continues with the Red and White armies forming officially. Vladivostok falls to the Communists as a naval uprising causes a full scale Communist uprising in the loosely controlled area. The White Russians still maintain large and consolidated control over the south of Russia. Moscow is home to nearly daily bombings. 

Estonia and Latvia look to secede from Russia as well with Communists and White both being expunged from the area.

Red Russia: Lenin dies and there is much mourning among the Communists, and soon Alexei Rykov takes the political power in Petrograd with Trosky remaining with the military power in Moscow. In Moscow, the Whites hold their Duma, government and main army in a Red-held city, and with the loss of Lenin, the Communists don't want to take the first shot. Because of this, Rykov decides the best course of action is a peace treaty, with the Reds taking from Petrograd to Moscow and Vladivostok while the Whites take mostly everything else.

  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We request more information on the death of the Tsar and his family.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. It agrees and gives tanks to the Portuguese.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins France as well offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana.

Switzerland: We increase our economy score by 0.25 and build a new factory. We declare that we will be neutral in all wars for the next decade unless attacked. We ask if any country wants to sign a free trade agreement with us.

Belgium: We asks if Switzerland if we could sign their free trade agreement, we also increase our navy and army by 0.25

ROC: We begin crushing warlords with our army. More military academies are built. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 500,000 men and is now sent to the South. The army slowly moves to the borders of Guanxi. We ask for an alliance with Germany and Red Russia. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-begin many industries and build up the army. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. Our capital is set at Beijing to stabilize the North.

ROC D (Secret): We ask Red Russia to give us the land Russia has taken from China. Vladishotov would still be Russian. In exchange, ROC would attack White Russia.

In OTL I believe China attempted to take this land from Russia by force. It's not plausible for the Russians to be giving up territory like this - not to mention you don't have good relations with either one of these governments.

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and asks Britain again for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza. Military support continues to be sent to aid the White Russians in their civil war.

Portugal: We continue to update and modernize our military, finishing our tank designs, naming them the MT1 (Medium Tank One). Our factories produce 25 of them. The government would recognize Estonia and Latvia if they chose to secede, and we offer to supply them with money, weapons and materials.


Australia: We continue to use anti-influenza methods. We continue to exploit the oil in the outback. The merger with New Zealand begins, and our governments begin to integrate with one another.

1925

The Austro-Hungarian civil war grows much bloodier as surprise shock advance of Hungarian troops make a surprise assault along nearly the entire Budapest front driving Austrians out of the city. Heavy casualties are prevalent on both sides. Bombings in Vienna also convince people to begin immigration. However, the Austrian government is intent on winning and manages to hold onto their gain in Slovenia.

The Nations of Estonia and Latvia Break away from Russia. The Russian civil war continues as many people on both sides look to prevent a treaty as a united Russia is the only Russia which stands any chance.

The Ottoman civil war continues but still Turkey remains the only section of the empire the completely control. The Turks, themselves, begin looking at settling and dividing up or giving the empire independence if Germany cannot hold its specified areas.

Australia: We continue to use anti-influenza methods. We continue to exploit the oil in the outback. The merger with New Zealand begins, and our governments begin to integrate with one another. The team going to the pole continues training. We have a vehicle that can travel over ice but many still put more faith in huskies. The permanent base plans are being formulated, but critics say that it will be two or three years until it is feasible. We establish a base camp on the shores of Antarctic, and the expedition returns with three dead bodies when a vehicle lost control and flipped. The trip was, other than this mishap, a success. Plans to lay a road begin.

Colombia: The conservatives continue to dominate the government largely thanks to the large success in raising Colombia's position over the laast few years. However, displeasure amongst the lower class is beginning to grow because of the continued existence of elitist oriented politics, poor living conditions in many areas and due to the special treatment of foreign nationals in exchange for economic investments. While this discontent remains largely verbal and non-partisan it is bringing larger support to the Liberals who have been marginalized for the last few years, and in a very small group the word of a proletarian revolution begins to appear as the works of Marx and other left wing writers begin circulating within certain circles. The rise in discontent is noticed by the ruling government and steps are taking to try to cut any possible revolutionary sentiment before it can set roots. These efforts include the expansion of efforts to improve living standards and to curb corruption in the government and police institutions. The military granted slightly greater freedoms as are the police to keep order and avoid internal strife. Industrialization continues with vigor as the industrial area around Barranquilla begins to spread along the coast line to other major cities in the North East, as does the industrial area around Bogota. More and more people begin heading for the big cities sparking the beginning of Colombian urbanization, in turn raising the interest in industrial investments among the old families who are interested in expanding their profits, meanwhile ideas about mechanising the large plantation and farm estates begins. Infrastructure continues to be expanded. investment into medical studies is increased as more capable doctors come out of the national universities (based on investments from several turns ago). The military continues its modernization and expansion as more weapons are purchased from Europe, plans are made to build a national military industry to help national development and promote economic growth. Conscription remains but is modified so that it for 18 months only and for all males in society should they be called up independent of social standing, training in jungle warfare continues and American and German forces are welcomed to come train with Colombian forces to help improve the effectiveness of all involved and to build better ties between the countries. Due to the implementation of free trade between Colombia and its neighbors trade has increased tremendiously and Colombia begins taking a greater interest in maintaining a friendly economic bloc in South America and to counter Brazilian influence as well as that of the growing left wing ideals, to this extent the Colombian government offers Venezuela, Peru and Ecuador once more a treaty to create a common market between the involved countries as a foundation for mutual friendship co-operation and trust. (RNG please) and also the government promises Colombian support in case of Brazilian aggression or in the case of any foreign intervention within the named countries above (I am not influencing any of these countries or even acting as a world power. I'm merely promising to support my neighbors in case of any actions taken against them and trying to build a mutually profitable arrangement) . Funding for anti-governmental groups in dictatorial Brazil continues and the Colombian border with them continues to be militarized to protect against any possible Brazilian aggression.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. It begins funding Syrian rebels secretly in the region of Aleppo and Lebanon.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins France as well offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana.

White Russia: With British funding and the backing of most nations, the Whites begin to make some progress. We seek French aid in addition to what we are receiving. We also offer all states independence, in hopes that they will then help defeat the Reds, who have sworn to keep them under oppression. Kolchak takes advantage of Lenin's death and orders the army, which is equally matched with the Red Army to attack the Bolshevik positions in Moscow. We need help! We also work to consolidate our position to the South, making sure that the Caucasians, Kazakhs and Siberians are supportive of our efforts.

  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We request information on the Tsar's death.

Um - the support for nations is just about even ... The United States counts for about two or three of the other nations and easily balances out in support - not to mention the only people that can really reach him are people that can sail right up to him to give supplies which would mean sailing through the Ottoman Empire, or delivering the supplies to the Red Army rather than the White.

ROC: We begin crushing warlords with our army. More military academies are built. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 600,000 men and is now sent to the South. The army slowly moves to the borders of Guanxi. We ask for an alliance with Germany. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-begin many industries and build up the army. We begin an air program and builds our first airplane. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. Our capital is set at Beijing to stabilize the North.

MaM Russian Civil War - 1925


Austrian Empire (I can't bomb Hungary, but they can bomb Vienna?): The Emperor-King Charles I of Austria refuses to move to the mountains for safety, but remains in his bunker in Vienna, in order to keep morale, showing that a King will never leave his people, and they should not leave him. Several new infantry regiments are created from Bohemian and Croation peoples, loosing any faith in the Hungarians due to their rampant attacks against people of all nationalities, not just Austrians. The tank designed by Gunther Burstynr is finished, and is very revolutionary in its design. It features cross-country capabilities, and the first swiveling gun turrent, allowing for a 360 degree turn ability for the main gun. Five more infantry regiments are sent to the Slovakian campaign, and an attack against the city of Presov begins (Algo to come). The tank design by Gunther quickly enters production, several armament factories being repurposed to produce tanks, and exclusive tank factories being constructed in the countryside in the Empire. With the new regiments two whole divisions are sent to re-inforce the position near Budapest, establishing a large defensive line inside the Hungarian territory. Several mounted rifle and lancer regiments patrol the flanks of the position to prevent flanking and to provide early warning of any attack. Defenses are constructed to the front and sides of the line. Due to Hungary's bombing campaign, the airships Militärluftschiff I and Militärluftschiff II are used to attack the Hungarian city of Budapest, as well as their armies in the area. The newer airplanes begin to drop propaganda across Hungary, calling up all nationalities to "Fight against the genocidal maniacs that call themselves Hungarians and have rebelled against your nation." 

The bombings are more like suicide and planted bombs not aircraft.

  • Austrian Empire Secret Diplomacy: Emperor-King Charles I of Austria approves the decision to pass on the blueprints of Gunther's Gunther Rusting I tank to the Serbian duchy to arm them for their planned eventual intervention into the civil war should it continue.
  • Duchy of Serbia: The industrialization of Serbia continues from the government subsidies, increasing the number of automobile and precision mechanics industries. Due to the civil war between Austria and Hungary, construction of ammunition factories begins, as well as Secret: covert construction of tank facilities from the blueprints of Gunther's Gunther Rusting I after having been given the blueprints by the Austrian Empire to arm Serbia against Hungary. Secret: Under Archduke Maximillian, Serbia steps up its involvement with the Austrian side, sending another three thousand volunteers to the Austrian defensive line. Propaganda also increases production, with newer posters and radio announcements denouncing the Hungarians for their killings of not just Austrians in Vienna, but Austrians, Serbians, Bohemians, Croations, and even Hungarians still in the city.

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and asks Britain again for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza. Military support continues to be sent to aid the White Russians in their civil war.

Portugal: The government pushes for a peace treaty or a truce to be signed to end the Russian Civil War. We recognize the independence of Estonia and Latvia. 25 more tanks are produced. There is some consideration of expanding the air services.

The government begins to consider allowing natives in the states of Portugal to elect their own leaders. (ie: East Timor, Goa, etc.).

German Empire: Research into new tank designs continues with the main one taking precedence as a medium tanks made for maximum efficiency. The German air force also continues its research on a new plane with the previous proposition for designs passing initial trials spectacularly. This new plane is called the X-109 with the X short for experimental or prototype. The German resource rights in Iraq particularly its oil fields (followed the Urabi revolt in Egypt in 1882) are beginning to be exploited in the anticipation of the Baghdad railways completion. Oil becomes increasingly important throughout the German economy as a fuel among other things Industry is improved. The German armed forces begins to institute a draft managing to pull in 300,000 troops previously trained from the Central entente war very easily and rearming them using their previous training as a base. These 300,000 troops almost 80% of these from the Battle of Marne, 150,000 German troops begin to prep themselves along the Austrian Border. the Remaining 150,000 troops are moved to re-inforce the German troops in the Ottoman Empire and begins counter rebellion operations in a greater swath of territory. With more open control of certain areas, the Generals contemplate making local leaders sign protection and other treaties to make these areas into German colonies. The Iraqi oil fields continue to be set up. German forces field some of their first prototypes of the new X-109 fighting in small numbers proving it to be superior to many fighters of the time. another 200,000 troops are moved from the Ukrainian border to the Hungarian border. The German populace exposes great outrage at its only other remaining ally in a civil war and the German populace begins demanding the Austria and Hungary both be put down hard for their failure to remain coherent. The German Generals and high command particularly Paul Von Hindenburg see an opportunity in the situation but do not disclose it. High command officially begins retooling certain industrial centers for war production once again and the German High seas fleet is fielded to the Medditerrenean posting itself off the coast of Austria. Military is improved.


  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small amount of German immigrants mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research. German settlements relatively new are isolated and secured as are many French settlements as inoculations to natives are given. However, the deadlier strain proliferates killing many more than they would have saved had the vaccine been properly researched. Gabon reaches a population of about 21,000
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the Railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German Empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in immigrants. Soldiers isolate all German settlements and vaccinations to natives are given which spread the deadlier strain to natives. German population reaches about 14,000.
  • Equatorial Africa: German control of this area is tenuous at best with almost 10,000 German troops used to begin securing the colony and prepare it for development by German corporations. However, the foothold begins to increase as German troops allow for vaccinations of the populace with the Canadian "vaccine" which actually turns out to kill more people than they're saving with the deadlier strain starting to kill the natives in droves. Equatorial Africa reaches a population of about 5000 Germans.
  • Congo: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporations along the Congo River begins. Inoculations begin against the influenza with the Canadian "vaccine" but this is only done for Africans and the virus begins to spread heavily. German soldiers isolate the German settlements as well with the same process as Namibia to prevent heavy outbreaks and promote a quick response. Congo reaches a population of about 24,000.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with Imperial incentives bringing a few hundred German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as Rubber, and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Inoculations are given to natives with the Canadian "vaccine" are done thinking they work which only serve to spread the disease thoroughly throughout the African native settlements and tribes. Tanzania reaches a population of 20,000.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany.
  • Namibia: Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. The German Army effectively quarantines the German settlements shooting any who approach on sight for fear of the influenza. However, the Germans using the Canadians' "vaccine" inoculate thousands of Africans who unknowingly take this deadlier strain of influenza back to their settlements and tribes with begin to spread like wildfire through German South-west Africa. Population reaches 58,000.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Further colonists begin to arrive.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops.

Red Russia: With the White assault in Moscow, we declare moral superiority in this conflict as they have attacked us. Using this to our advantage, Trosky manages to inspire even more workers to join the Red Army, and we set up a defensive position near the White Duma. Meanwhile in Petrograd, Rykov removes any thought of peace between the Reds and Whites and instead devotes industry to the renewed civil war, thus expanding the amount of labor for the Workers as well as land and bread just as Lenin promised. 

1926

The Austro-Hungarian Civil war continues with regular suicide and placed bombing occuring in both nations. Immigration from both by the pacifists and those less inclined move further West into Germany, or other nations such as France or Spain. The Hungarians begin to look for allies looking to Ukraine for support

The Russian Red Army pushes the Whites out of Moscow. However, a long fight is up ahead. Public rioting in many cities across Russia begins to cripple the Reds and Whites as troops have to be pulled to deal with supply shortages. However, supplies from the US trump some of this allowing for the Red army to maintain an increased standard of Readiness.

A Hungarian incursion on the German Border pushes German people to be for the total dismemberment of the current Hungarian regime.

British attempts at securing influence in Ottoman territories is spurned. The Ottoman empire begins to withdraw into itself as German influence and economics takes hold in areas such as Iraq.

Brazil's Economy begins a large period of growth as Does Colombias.

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and asks Britain again for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza. Military support continues to be sent to aid the White Russians in their civil war.

White Russia: Following the unsucessful campaign to take over Moscow, the leaders of Duma are forced to flee the city of Moscow. Convinced that a war to unify Russia would take over 20 more years, the leaders begin to draft a proposal to submit to the Red Russians. They agree upon a solution that will probably be accepted by the Reds:

The two factions would represent two new nations, the Union of Soviet Socialist Russians (USSR) and the Russian Federation (Ру.Фед). The border would be drawn from Arkangelsk in the north to the mouth of the Don at the Black Sea. The two nations would enter into an eternal armistice, and the Black Sea would be demilitarized. Petrograd will be the capital of the USSR, and Moscow will be the capital of the Ру.Фед. Vladisvostok will be under the control of the Ру.Фед, but it will be home to a naval base of the USSR.
  • Red Russian Diplomacy; We agree to peace between our factions, but we have some disagreements with the peace proposals. The first disagreement is the surrendering of Moscow. Moscow is prediomantly under Communist control, and is an extremely important industrial, military and political city. Because of these reasons, we do not agree to the complete surrender of Moscow. We will, however, let it be the seat of the White Russian government and portions of Moscow will be under White control, while most of it will remain under Red control. The opposite case will be for Vladivostock, however, with us getting only a naval base, trading post and two areas of Vladivostock (an industrial area and a residential area.)
  • White Russian Diplomacy: We agree, and will split Moscow down the middle by using the Mosva River.
  • Red Russian Diplomacy: We are happy that you agree. Now we must make this official by forming and signing an official treaty and by drawing up borders officially.


  • Belgium: Our great army has fought hard and has finally reached the Capital of Luxembourg. We have captured the Prime Minister and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg! Luxembourg is finally ours! We increase our army by 0.25. We also continue to ask the Netherlands and Switzerland for an alliance. 


Sorry, but you can't just say you win. You need an algo. Rcchang (talk) 05:35, October 18, 2013 (UTC)

  • Can you help me do an algo because I don't know how to do it. PS - I'm dumb! Captainjohnrex (talk) 05:37, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
  • Yeah, just make a legit declaration of war, etc on Luxemborg and make sure it's plausible/won't screw you over. Then I can handle the Algo. Just do it in 1927 if that's OK with you. I don't have time for it right now.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. It begins funding Syrian rebels secretly in the region of Aleppo and Lebanon. Begins influencing the Syrian rebels.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins France as well offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana.

Portugal: We are glad that the Reds and the Whites have signed a ceasefire. Many

Austrian Empire: The Emperor-King Charles I of Austria delivers a speech from his palace in Vienna, calling upon every person if Austria, "regardless of race, regardless of backround, regardless of ethnicity, to fight the Hungarians who seek to fight for nothing more than anarchy and suicide." The tanks designed have reached almost 350 being produced thus far, and much more planned, in order to decimate the Hungarian armies. Two hundred tanks are sent to the defensive line established outside Budapest, and one hundred are sent to the Slovakian offensive. Several military planners are sent to monitor the ability of the Gunther Rusting I. An additional mounted rifle regiment is sent to the Slovakian offensive, and the Battle of Kosice begins, with the Austrians army leading with the tanks. (Algo to come). Two factories completely dedicated to tank production are completed, and two more are set to be finished in six months, and two more after that are set to be finished in one year, with no more planned due to the increasing belief in Austrian military superiority in this civil war. Another rifle regiment is sent to re-inforce the defensive line. An additional airship, the Militärluftschiff III begins to be used for the bombing of Hungarian supply depots and military facilities, as well as the few factories they have. 

  • Austrian Secret Diplomacy: We send fifty of the Gunther Rusting I tanks to Serbia to help prepare for their intervention into the civil war. 
  • Austrian Secret Diplomacy (Needs Mod Response): We request that Bulgaria come to our aid in the Austrian Civil War.
  • Duchy of Serbia: The industrialization of Serbia continues from the government subsidies, increasing the number of automobile and ammunition factories. One tank facility is completed, with plans for an additional one to be finished next year, but no more after that. With the fifty tanks, they are placed in separate outposts near the Hungarian border. No new volunteers are sent this year to the Austrian military, in order to feign an end to Serbian involvement in the war. 

ROC: More military academies are built. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 600,000 men and is now sent to the South. The army slowly moves to the borders of Guanxi. We attack Guanxi with 300,000 soldiers and attack the city of Yulin. Sun Yat-sen has died, with great mourning over the country. Kong Hsiang Hsi wins the following election and Chen Du Shou becomes the vice president. They begin a policy of socialist economics. We ask for an alliance with Germany. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-begin many industries and build up the army. We begin an air program and builds our first airplane. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. 

Kingdom of Greece: Greece begins to build up its military. We also begin to influence western Anatolia as the Ottomans are locked in their bitter civil war. Greek mercaneries begin to flow into the rebel held lands and helping them out, while Greece itself demands the ceding coastal Anatolia to Greece or Greece will invade. Indsutrialization continues, and war factories begin to sprout up arond the country. The University of Athens is taken over by the state, although most employees remain there. 

Australia: We continue to use anti-influenza methods. We continue to exploit the oil in the outback. The merger with New Zealand continues, and our governments integrate with one another. The permanent base plans are being formulated, but critics say that it will be two or three years until it is feasible. We begin laying the road, building it along slowly, with Shelters dug into the Ice every 10 miles or so.

Red Russia: While the Treaty of Moscow is being signed by both us and the Whites Rykov and Trotsky meet up together to discuss the transition from wartime Communism to peace time Communism as next year the treaty shall be officially put into effect, with the creation of two official nations instead of militarized political parties. Meanwhile, Joseph Stalin steps up and acts as the leader of the interim government.

German Empire: The First Major German tank advance since the Central-Entente war ends up in the Panzer I with light armor and moderate guns but with Tests in speed is deemed the Fastest Tank. Some of the Chassis are adapted to carry troops rather than a cannon. The BF-109 is also developed and performs spectacularly. The German Army officially makes its move on Hungary launching its main assault into the Polish Areas the Hungary only loosely controls (The troops are fighting in Slovenia and Budapest) and uses its new tanks more like cavalry than support guns overrunning many of the light position held by the (very few Hungarian troops). Almost 200,000 troops flood the lightly defended Polish areas of Hungary and seize much of the Territory. Artillery is deployed on the front and used to shell the much more fortified positions deeper into the country. The Navy as well makes its major move Shelling one of the few small and insignificant Hungarian ports and their defenses focusing heavily on ships appropriated for the military, and the trench linse and defenses around these small ports. The German military also begins research into a new Fully Automatic rifle with the ability to be more handheld rather than mounted on something. The German forces also looking to protect their interests on the now finished Berlin-Baghdad Railway, Brings another 150,000 troops to guard the German interests on the Railway through Austria, inadvertently establishing a Solid fallback and support position in which Austrian forces can act on. The German forces are supported by their new Tanks and aircraft and also deploy Artillery and officially support the Austrians in the Civil war. The oil from Iraq now being exploited highly allows for easy movement of vehicles such as tanks and prevents supply shortages. The Panzer is deployed alongside the Austrian tank and is gifted for use, if they are Crewed by the German forces. Military is upgraded. The German navy also deploys off of Greece and asks them to stay out of Ottoman territory and retract their previous demand. The German armed forces in the Faltering Ottoman empire use the railway to ship in some of the new Panzer tanks and begin using them in the occupation operations against rebels. The Tanks a heavily used in a sort of "BlitzKreig" against rebel encampments found literally overrunning them in minutes as they lack the abiltiy to take out the tanks and Troops transports in any meaningful way.

1927

The Ottoman Rebellions begin shutting down as German and Ottoman forces have captured or killed many. However, the Ottomans and their government begin looking for alternatives to administering the Empire as they do. The Sultan himself dies as well and it is left up to exhausted nobles and Ministers.

Iraq begins to calm down as the oil industry and workers needed for it jump-start the economy of the backward area.

The Hungarians are increasingly hindered as their armed forces lack the manpower to mobilize against an aggressive German in Poland to retake the territory. Budapest, however, remains strong as layered trench defenses are created reminiscent of the Central-Entente war. An accident ends in the deaths of 47 Hungarian POW's as they were thought to be escaping and poorly trained troops escorting them opened fire on them. 

The US economy begins to show huge improvement as consumer confidence advances considerably. Farmland in the great plains begin to fail due to bad usage and technique.

A few more small Eastern European republics are formed during the major period of Russias turmoil and re-organization.

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and again asks Britain for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza.

US: continues to build its industry and military, and begins research into the previous epidemic, and begins to look for ways to prevent it from happening again.

Belgium: We have conquered Luxembourg finally. We increase our army by 0.25.

  • By the way, I did an algo. Captainjohnrex (talk) 04:14, October 19, 2013 (UTC)
  • But you need a plausible reason to invade. Belgium at this time, or any point in OTL history, has had little to no reason to even dislike Luxembourg. In fact, I believe there was a defensive pact Belgium and Luxembourg had before OTL WWI, but I may be mistake. To invade them, you would need a very good reason that would be hard to come by as Belgium against Luxembourg. Also, your algo would need some fixing, and Feudal and/or I could help you with creating algos. Hint: The reason will not be found within one turn. If you need any help, just ask!  Eiplec - ಠ_ಠ (talk) 20:52, October 19, 2013 (UTC)
  • I have two questions:
  1. I don't know why, but my reason to invade Luxembourg was that I wanted more resources and land. (It was written in my algo) I think it is a plausible reason.
  2. Since you said my algo needed some fixing, what was it that I needed to fix?   Captainjohnrex (talk) 14:27, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. It begins funding Syrian rebels secretly in the region of Aleppo and Lebanon. Begins influencing the Syrian rebels.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins France as well offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana.


German Empire: The German empire donates its armed forces of 150,000 currently holding along the Berlin-Baghdad Railway to Austria for its use on the Budapest trenches. This is done on the condition that Albrecht, Duke of Württemberg, and Alexander von Kluck, serve as the main generals for the German forces during the Budapest offensive. Along with this German tanks and their crews tagged along with the army are brought up and aircraft begin to take a larger part in the movements and offensives of the military, but the lack of a full scale and usable heavy bomber to use for major bombing runs. Zeppelins are used to a minimal degree for bombing runs but their slow speed shows off the general lack of a future for the airship and generals begin considering taking it up with the aircraft developers and the leaders of the air force. The German economy continues but at a slower pace as the retooling for war industry begins to divert away from the much more profitable consumer industries. The empire continues to use its new techniques on putting down rebels throughout Levant and begins Influencing the area using our direct access and superior position to gain the upper hand on anyone else in the area. The empire also begins a process of attempting to re-organize the Middle East and its territories and begins moving forces into Ottoman Arabia. The oil from Iraq continues to fuel an upward spiral in certain economical niches but also sparks an interest in increased use of oil in things such as warships beginning to modernize the designs of destroyers, cruisers and battleships working on creating a long lasting modern fleet which can last for long periods of time without replacement. The German immigration to colonies continues with about 30,000 leaving this year many of them going to Congo, Tanzania and South-West Africa. The first colonists also begin their first notable settlement on Madagascar. The German colonial population between the collection of colonies has reached an estimated 200,000. A small representative movement begins in Germany proper which advocated representatives to more effectively manage the German colonies. The German generals consult with the the emperor, and legislative branches of government working out how to deal with the Ottomans. A few ideas are given, one of which establishes a religiously unified Caliphate that does not rule all the countries together but acts like an Islamic version of the Pope. Along with this, Germany will take hold of Arabia, and Iraq and divide Levant between some of the ethnic peoples as well as establishing an independent Kurdistan, as well as a German ruled Kurdistan (northern Iraq)


  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small amount of German immigrants mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research. Gabon reaches a population of about 25,000
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the Railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German Empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in immigrants. German population reaches about 21,000.
  • Equatorial Africa: German control of this area is tenuous at best with almost 10,000 German troops used to begin securing the colony and prepare it for development by German corporations.  Equatorial Africa reaches a population of about 14,000 Germans.
  • (New Frankfurt) Congo: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporations along the Congo River begins. Inoculations begin against the influenza with the Canadian "vaccine" but this is only done for Africans and the virus begins to spread heavily. Congo reaches a population of about 35,000. The current governor of Congo part of the nobility of Germany petitions to work Congo as a duchy of the German empire, and also sends a Request to Change the name from Congo to New Frankfurt. The emperor denies the request to be a Duchy but does allow for the name change attempting to bring a more Germanic culture type to Africa with the name change. The Kaiser informs the governer that New Frankfurt will be reconsidered at a later date when the colony becomes much more heavily populated and vastly more profitable.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with Imperial incentives bringing the population up to about 3000 German Settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as Rubber, and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Tanzania reaches a population of 27,000.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany. Population grows to about 400.
  • South-West Africa (was Namibia): Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. Population reaches 74,000 and the current governor begins pushing Germany for greater status within the empire for achieving the unprecendented growth.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Further colonists begin to arrive ranging to about 500 settlers.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops 300.

Portugal: We scale down our armed forces numbers by moving troops into the gendarmerie from active and cut our army by one brigade. The government looks into acquiring more aircraft for the military. The government builds 50 armored cars, acquiring Rolls-Royce Ghost chassis and building the armored car on that. We mount a Vickers machine gun on top and 10 gun slots for rifles on either side of the vehicle.

People want the government to try to broker a ceasefire between Austria and Hungary. We continue to update the economy and factories.

  • Goa: Two destroyers are deployed and three infantry companies are raised. Development of infrastructure continues. There are 1000 Portuguese settlers there.
  • East Timor: One destroyer is sent and a company of soldiers are raised. We modernize the infrastructure. The Portuguese population is 160. A small naval refueling center is constructed.
  • Macau: Three small patrol boats are sent and a regiment is raised up. The port is modernized and infrastructure including manufacturing are increased. A refueling and resupply naval depot is constructed.
  • Mozambique: The mining of raw materials is started and they are shipped to Portugal. Infrastructure is modernized and a regiment is raids for defense. A destroyer is sent.
  • Angola: Mining of raw materials is started. Infrastructure is updated. A militia is raised with 150 troops.
  • Guinea: The infrastructure is modernized and a port and refueling depot is constructed.

Australia: We continue to use anti-influenza methods. We continue to exploit the oil in the outback. The merger with New Zealand continues, and our governments integrate with one another. The permanent base plans are being formulated, but critics say that it will be two or three years until it is feasible. We continue laying the road, building it along slowly, with shelters dug into the ice every they miles or so, and will be finished next year. The merger with New Zealand begins to reach its conclusion. Scientists in Australia begin to go to study in Antarctica. A biologist, happening upon the results from the biology experiment several years earlier, swiftly tests all the substances the bacteria had contact with, and establishes that something on the mouldy bread killed them. He isolates this, and sends his results to be published in a scientific journal. He names the antibiotic 'Penicillin'.


Colombia: Colombian efforts to counter the growth of Communist influence are working to a good extent with the social plans alleviating the common population. In a surprinsing turn of events the Conservatives win another election but by a very small margin and this means the liberals will now possess a strong say in the government. Industrialization in the northeast and in central Colombia contiunes as more factories and electric lines pop up. Plans to build the first arms manufacturing factory in Barranquila are set in place and it is believed it will be down by 1930. The expansion of infrastructure continues. The military now stands at 250,000 active and a further 300,000 reserves. The militarization of the south continues as the border remains covered with trenchlines, barbed wire, and bunkers. Colombia once requests that the countries of Venezuela and Peru form a common market with Colombia to further stimulate regional growth and to build greater trust.(I'm just going to do the RNG myself since it's been ignored for four turns Peru 3 no, Venezuela 7 yes), with Venezuela's acceptance efforts begin to integrating the Venezuelan market into Colombia's begin to create a larger one. Influence over Ecuador continues and after seven years of doing so Colombia finally succeeds in getting a candidate they supported into the Ecuadorian presidency. This allows Colombian nationals greater influence within the Ecuadorian economy and the Colombian ambassador is pushing to become an advisor to the government to promote greater co-operation between the two countries (to completely bring Ecuador under Colombian control within the next 20 years. I will do this slowly. Don't worry.) Funds to rebel groups in Brazil continue, and to further the discontent within Brazil Colombian settlements are secretly supported by the government to begin populating the sparesly populated Amazonian region of Brazil. Research into medicine and chemical weapons begins, as does research into mechanized military units.

  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We offer to sell Colombia ten armored cars.
  • Colombian Response: The Colombian government accepts the offer.

ROC: More military academies are built. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 800,000 men and is now sent to the South. The army slowly moves to the borders of Guanxi. After securing Yulin with 35,000 soldiers, we moved on to Nanning with 250,000 soldiers. Nanning is conquered and the Guanxxi Clique is crushed. Kong Hsiang Hsi wins the following election and Chen Du Shou becomes the vice president. They begin a policy of socialist economics. We ask for an alliance with Germany. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-begin many industries and build up the army. We begin an air program and build more airplanes. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. 

USSR: The Treaty of Moscow is now put into effect and thus the first Communist nation ever is formed. Now that the Soviet Union is formed Rykov returns to Petrograd in order to become the political leader once again. However, Stalin refuses to step down from his political power. Soon pro-Stalin and pro-Rykov factions start to form and fighting breaks out in the streets of Petrograd. Soon the military leader Trotsky receives the news and marches the Red Army to Petrograd. Upon entering Petrograd Trotsy orders the Red Army to quell the fighting between the factions. The first stage of the quelling turns out bloody, however. Because of this, Rykov urges the members of his faction to join Trotsky and his Red Army. The latter stages of the quelling turn into capturing of Pro-Stalinist faction members and finally surrounding the capital building where Stalin is. Trosky demands that Stalin steps down from his seat of power. Stalin is very relucantant but eventually he comes to his senses and finally steps down and Trotsky steps up as both the political and military leader of the Soviet Union and thanks the Red Army. Trotsky soon steps gives a speech, "My fellow Soviets, today has been a day where Lenin's dream of a Communist nation has come true. But alas, it has also been a day where many of our worst nightmares have been realized. This nightmare was only a product of division, caused by Stalin's stubbornness to not step down as was agreed upon and only with the might of our glorious Red Army was he stopped.  The only way for us to avoid such nightmares is to unite, unite as workers! This is why I urge you to join the workforce, so we can truly fulfill Lenin's dream of a UNITED Communist Russia. Because of this reason, I shall rename this city Leningrad, so we shall remember this day as the day the workers have united." After the clean up of Leningrad, many are inspired to join the workforce, and thus industry is developed.

Great Britain: Following the end of the Great War, and the many years of stagnation in between, Britain finally begins to wake up from her slumber and realize that if we are to remain a great power, we must take a more assertive position in world affairs. Attention goes first to the colonies. We see the need to eventually form self-sustaining, democratic governments, especially in places such as the Raj and Africa to avoid rebellions breaking out. Attention is placed on the southern African colonies, where apartheid is practiced. Many in the British Isles protest apartheid, and some believe that a separate colony should be made for Afrikaners and blacks. Industry is built up around the Cape Town region, and plans are made to make South Africa an industrial hub. Britain proposes an Anglo-Latin alliance to strengthen the relationships between Britain and its historic enemy France, as little has happened after the Great War. We also ask for an alliance with the US. A non-aggression pact is proposed with the USSR, stating that "we'll stay out of your business, and you'll stay out of ours."

  • Soviet Diplomacy: We accept the British offer of a non-aggression pact.

Austrian Empire: With the backing of the full might of the German Empire, a co-operative offensive against the Hungarian trenches in Budapest begins, utilizing the full use of both sides tanks, air planes, Zeppelins, and overwhelming manpower (Algo to come). While this is happening, the Slovakian offensive is pushed once more, also using the combined power of Germany and Austria. (Algo to come). The ability of the Gunther Rusting I is monitored with astounding success and reported back to the Imperial-Royal Landwehr Command, and already, Gunther begins to attempt to improve on his tanks design, given more funding by the Imperial government due to his success. Attempts are made to modify the Albitris IV airplane into a bomber plane, from a fighter plane, due to Hungary's lack of fighters, but abundance of potential strike targets. In order to keep up with the development of the bomber plane in two years time, two new military aviation schools are constructed to increase the access and options of those who wish to join the Royal Austrian Aviation Divisions. The new tank factories are completed, allowing for the creation of over 600 Gunther Rusting I tanks to be used directly on the next battlefield. 

  • Austrian Secret Diplomacy: Due to the Austrian-German offensives in Slovakia and Budapest, Emperor-King Charles I of Austria asks his brother to finally enter the war, since the Duchy of Serbia is predicted to be ready for smaller scale engagements.
  • Duchy of Serbia: Archduke Maximilian of Austria official declares war on the Hungarian rebels, but does not participate nor initiate any large battles, and just re-inforces the Serbian-Hungarian border, using the tanks gifted by the Austrian Empire, and the new tank factory, which are entrenched near artillery to provide armored support for the artillery divisions. Archduke Maximilian gives a speech in Sarajevo, saying "The Hungarians have not only fought the Germans, the Austrians and the Bohemians, but they have also sought to kill the Serbians, the Croations, and all nationalities protected by Austria by using their own deaths and crude bombs. Will we stand for the Hungarian aggression, and their assumed superiority over all the races of Austria? I, for one, will not allow thei genocides to go unchecked!"

1928

The Austro-German forces make their full advance on Budapest with the trenches falling to the combined forces of Austria and Germany. The desperate and pitched battle marks some of the first true successes of the new German and Austrian tank designs which despite heavy losses turned out to be the deciding factor of the battle. The battle, however, still continues as the trenches are used to set up a siege of Budapest. Sadly, however, Wilhelm II's son William, Crown Prince of Germany, and Prussia is killed on the Front lines working with a small unit to help save August Mackensen who had come out of Retirement to fight once again for his country.

The Ottoman empire officially creates a council which agrees to begin the division of the empire into independent states to finally end the rebellion. However, Turkey proposes to make a non-unified purely religious Caliphate out of the dissolution of the empire to keep the Islamic religion on the right track. The Council of Division will take a year of deliberation on how to divide the former territories of the Ottoman empire.

Colombia experiences an industrial boom as many people begin to take after the increased pay in industry rather than farming or other professions.

Mass immigration of millions of whites begin happening as they push on to settle in eastern Russia albeit very hesitant of the move. Millions more look to take their chances in the USSR led by Trotsky.

The US Stock market along with the British market begins to fluctuate as the economy begins awkward and random shifts but remains stable. It is believed to be caused by defaulting on war debt and the overproduction of crops in the US.

Shouldn't Australia have merged with New Zealand by now? Praetorian Flag RoG Flag "Sleeps with the fishes" "An Offer you Can't Refuse." "Make a wish. It'll be your last" Falklands Flag

Map will be edited to reflect this next turn The Unchallenged Conqueror #FP (Talk to Me)

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and again asks Britain for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza.


France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. It begins funding Syrian rebels secretly in the region of Aleppo and Lebanon. Begins influencing the Syrian rebels.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins. France, as well, offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana.

Netherlands: The Dutch begin plans to become bigger on the world stage once more. It begins to overhaul it navy as well as its merchant navy and begins to make plans to transform the East Indies into an industrial and agricultural heartland for the Dutch nation. They begin to research large destroyers and also look into building an aircraft carrier or two to make oversight of their territories easier. Funding is put to the navy to make sure the dream turns into a reality. They invite the German Royal Family in a bid to foster better relations with their powerful neighbours and grow links with the powerful state. In the East Indies, many companies are sponsored by the government in a bid to increase oil extraction. Oil starts to be stored up while much of it is sold for gold for the reserve bank of the Dutch nation, seeing the fluctuation of the United States economy. It was enough to cause bells to ring in the nation and begin the expansion of the oil and rubber extraction processes. The Dutch also spread propaganda into Indonesia telling males to join up for the army and serve their nation faithfully and with honour. They kindly decline the French offer and are fine with their colonies.

German Dip: We will agree to this visit, Crown Prince Wilhelm, the Kaiser himself, and their retinue will travel to the Netherlands to foster better relations between our two countries.

German Empire: The German empire Donates its Armed forces of 150,000 currently holding along the Berlin-Baghdad Railway to Austria for its Usage on the Budapest Seige replacing the losses from the previous battle and with Morale increasing through the troops looking to get revenge for the death of the crown prince. The new Crown Prince Wilhelm IV agrees to travel along with his father and with their retinue to the Netherlands. The nation itself continues investment in newer aircraft designs looking to gain a larger advantage with better fighters and a new dedicated long range bomber. The Gold Mark begins to fluctuate a bit due to the US economic and stock shifting. The Legislative branch, while confident in the ability of the German Gold Mark, agrees at behest of a few skeptical economist to diversify parts of the currency which will prevent any sorts of huge currency shift. This is done by shifting a set amount of currency to oil establishing a separate but equal petrocurrency German mark based on the well-regulated oil economy of Germany and its owned oil supplies in various places worldwide. The German military also begins scheduled drawbacks of troops numbers down intending that by the end of the Austrian Civil war to reach a standard troop strength of 800,000. The German research into upgraded tanks of the Panzer design continues beginning the development of the Panzer II. The German economy manages to recover its previous industrial losses as war industry is once again reconverted into Civilian industrial usage. The German immigration to the colonies increases to about 40,000 with many skeptical people moving to the colonies to insure land and prosperity in case anything goes wrong. Some newer private industrial companies push their way into the colonies wishing to start them locally in New Frankfurt, and South-West Africa which is also being changed to New Prussia. The gradual name changes are to reflect the Germanization of the German colonies in Africa. The government begins to consider the building of its first aircraft carrier alongside the modernization of the navy, and the development of a grouping of naval aircraft. 


  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small number of German immigrants mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research. Gabon reaches a population of about 26,000.
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the Railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German Empire.

  • New Frankfurt: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporations along the Congo River begins. Congo reaches a population of about 40,000. The current governor of Congo part of the nobility of Germany petitions to work Congo as a Duchy of the German empire, and also sends a Request to Change the name from Congo to New Frankfurt. The emperor denies the request to be a duchy but does allow for the name change attempting to bring a more Germanic culture type to Africa with the name change. The kaiser informs the governer that New Frankfurt will be reconsidered at a later date when the colony becomes much more heavily populated and vastly more profitable. A local corporation which is an offshoot of a larger railroad corporation in Germany proper funds the construction of the Trans-African Railway from the city of New Borna, to the Tanzanian city of Dar es Salaam.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with Imperial incentives bringing the population up to about 3500 German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as rubber and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Tanzania reaches a population of 27,000. The central railroad is expanded and funded by a railroad company in order to meet up and establish the trans-Africa railway through German Colonial Africa. The Tanzanian side will end in Dar es Salaam renamed to Wildhaus reflecting continuing Germanization of Africa.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany. Population grows to about 1100.
  • New Prussia (South West Africa): Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. Population reaches 104,000 and the current governor begins pushing Germany for greater status within the empire for achieving the unprecendented growth.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Further colonists begin to arrive ranging to about 1000 settlers.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops 800.

USSR: Now that Trotsky is both the political and military leader during peace time he organizes both civilizians and soldiers. The civilizians are organized into the Leningradian workforce, the Muscovian workforce, the Rural workforce, and the Railroad workforce. The Red Army is divided into the Leningradian Defensive Force, the Muscovian Defensive Force, the Borderian Defensive Force, the Railroadian Defensive Force, and the Rural Defensive Force. With the Red Workers and the Red Army organized, Trotsky resumes the construction of hospitals and industry continues to develope. 

Colombia: seeing the fluctuation in the market, the Conservative government begins devaluating the Colombian Peso and pushing forward an early austerity program to avoid the worst of an economic collapse and many Colombian investors begin shifting their investment from dollars to marks and Colombian pesos.government subsidies to industry are continued, to make sure the industrialization does halt in the case of any major market collapses. The industrial centres of Bogota and North Eastern Colombia continue to grow. Army spending is cut slightly nd the budget is readjusted to make up for the cut in military expenses but expansion is ceased for the time being while training is improved. The construction of the arms facotories begin while arms purchases are decreased. Immigration is once more promoted. economic co-operation between Colombia and Venezuellaa continues to grow and Colombian investment in Venezuela begins. Ecuador continues to fall under Colombian influence as the Ambassador to Ecuador pushes for greater rights for Colombians which the president starts permitting little by little, it is believed that soon the Colombian government will demand tht Colombin troops be permited access to Ecuadorian soil to help protect the common interests of the three Granadan republics.

Portugal: The government sees the fluctuations of American and British currency, so to prevent the same from happening to the Portuguese escudo, the government ties some of it to oil production in Angola and rare minerals in Mozambique.

There is deliberation in the navy as to whether to construct an aircraft carrier or some aircraft. For now there are no plans for either.

The government supports the Russian government, not the USSR, as there is evidence that the Czar was executed by Communist forces. 9000 rifles are sent to the White Russian government.

The army purchases 50 more tanks and 100 more armored cars. The ten armored cars purchased by Colombia are delivered.

In Australia, we stop using anti-influenza methods. We continue to exploit the oil in the outback. The merger with New Zealand is complete. The permanent base is begun. The merger with New Zealand begins to reach its conclusion. Scientists in Australia begin to go to study in Antarctica. The road to the South Pole is complete, and we begin to construct another road, around the edge of the continent. The protection of the aborigines is extended to the Maori.

ROC: More military academies are built. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 900,000 men and is now sent to the South. The army slowly moves to the borders of Guanxi. We begin to move to the Yunnan clique as we solidify the Guanxxi clique. Kong Hsiang Hsi wins the following election and Chen Du Shou becomes the vice president. They begin a policy of socialist economics. We ask for an alliance with Germany. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-start many industries and build up the army. We begin an air program and build more airplanes. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. 


Great Britain: Continues building up industry in southern Africa. Plans to make a trans-African route are revived, due to the fact that we can travel down Lake Tanganykia. The fledgling Anglo-Latin Pact continues to ask new members to join. Research begins on a portable machine gun, in case war ever does break out. We ask Australia and all English-speaking nations to join.

  • Australia: Will join.
  • France: We are interested in joining the Anglo-Latin Pact. However, we are unaware of what it is.

Austrian Empire: The success of both battles serves to only feed the fuels of war for Austria, regardless of the casualties for both sides. In order to cement the recent victories, the offensives are quickly on the offensive. The siege of Budapest culmulates into a final assault by the Austrian-German soldiers and tanks, in order to overwhelm and outfight the Hungarian defenders once and for all. (Algo to come). Also, the end of the Slovakian campaign nears, as the final battle for the entire territory has begun in the city of Presov (Algo to come), and will truly test the result of the Slovakian campaign. The Gunther Rusting II continues development under Gunther Byurnst, with increasing its speed and armor at the same time being the main purpose, but increasing the power of the tanks main armament are also taken into consideration in the development. The Albtris IV is successfully modified into a bomber plane, the speed of the fighter plane disappearing as the weight of the bombs onto the planes take effect. Construction of 200 more Gunther Rusting I tanks are completed and are deployed to both the Slovakian campaign and the Siege of Budapest. In order to meet the rising demands of consumers due to the current civil war, industrial expansion into Bosnia begins with automobile factories, and other consumer centrist factories.

  • Duchy of Serbia: The fortification of the Serbian defensive line at the Serbian-Hungarian border continues, but, in order to actually have a wartime contribution, Archduke Maximilian sends two regiments of soldiers to each of the Austrian-German offensives. The Archduke begins to relax several of the Duchy's post-central-entente war economic laws, focusing on making it much less costly to introduce new factories, or farms in Serbia, artificially lowering some property values that are deemed desireable to businesses.

1929

The Ottoman empire officially ends and the Khalifat Dar Al Islam (Caliphate of Islam) in which multiple new nations are created out of the former Ottoman Empire. Iraq, and Arabia due to German ownership of resources is left up to Germany to decide, The Levant is split up into multiple emirates of Kurdistan, Syria, Jordan, and Palestine, while Turkey styles itself as the Sultanate of Turkey. This split and the creation of the Caliphate almost immediately quells the majority of the rebellions in the area.

The Assault on Budapest ends in a close victory and Austria is once again fully united as all Major Hungarian resistance ends but population hostility and minor attacks continue to happen.

The Meeting between the German imperial family, and the Dutch imperial family ends and both nations seem to be in much better spirits from the meeting.

The US stock market crashes as structural weaknesses in the global economy, failure of war debts to be paid by Russia (its successors), France, Austria, and the former Ottoman Empire force a huge downturn of the economy. This comes along with the overproduction of certain products driving down prices as well making it uneconomical to produce the products as these offer almost zero profit anymore. This is labeled Black Tuesday, and has far reaching economic effects worldwide as industrial production falls by almost 40% in certain countries. The far reaching effects of this are supposed to hit countries like Germany, Japan and a few others in just over a year. However, nations like France, Britain, The United States, and Austria feel the effects immediately.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. It begins funding Syrian rebels secretly in the region of Aleppo and Lebanon. Begins influencing the Syrian rebels.

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins France as well offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana.

Australia: All involvement in Antarctica is halted. We begin exploiting iron as well as oil. We offer trade deals to any nation that wants iron. We begin to set up refineries to turn the iron ore to iron. We also set up steel mills, producing steel. These new jobs cause the economic crisis to have a lesser effect on us as a nation. We begin to industrialise, as we hope to be able to recover from the crisis reasonably fast, and we cannot do that with only agricultural industries. We request that the UK sends its metal working industrial hardware to us, not South Africa.

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and again asks Britain for an alliance. Meanwhile, the government continues funding research into the influenza. Japan also asks France and Australia for a trade agreement. Meanwhile, the government begins finding ways to deal with the financial crisis.

Britain Diplomacy: We accept, and ask you to join the Anglo-Latin Co-operation Sphere.
Japanese Diplomacy: Japan agrees, and joins the Anglo-Latin Co-operation Sphere.

US D: We offer a trade agreement.

Japan Diplomacy: Japan accepts the trade agreement offer from the US.

'US: Due to the stock market crash, 'we go to the Red Russians to ask for the money and oil they owe us from the civil war. We also begin drilling for oil in Alaska, and the states. We begin to rebuild the stock market, and more oil and coal mining plantations open, creating jobs. People begin extracting resources from the Philippines, and selling resources to Australia and Japan. Gold mining in Alaska begins to enter a rapid pace. Factories begin to pop up in the Great Plains. People begin to call for Hoover to do something, which he doesn't do, and many riot calling for his impeachment. We begin to recover the industry. We offer Britain a trade agreement.

British Diplomacy: We accept, and ask you to join the Anglo-Latin Co-operation Sphere.
US is extremely isolationist. They didn't even get involved in it in OTL, not to mention this is just reaffirming a previously existing group. I would also like to point out Isolationist America does not care for Europe right now. The Unchallenged Conqueror #FP (Talk to Me)
 I hope you realize that I changed my isolationist policies some time ago when  allied with Brazil and Colombia.
Those fall in line with the Monroe Doctine easily. The US was staunchly defendent of its
anti-interventionist policies in Europe. The alliance is implausible.
US Dip: Accepts British offer

Great Britain: The economic crisis hits Britain hard, especially heavy industry. Many move to South Africa and work in the fledgling metalworks industry there. Tensions arise between Afrikaners, blacks and British. Due to the overproduction of goods, Britain begins to diversify, with many new industries in weapons and automotives. Hull Auto, founded by metalworker Robert Hull increases exponentially during this time, and a large factory is set up in Wales. Military is also a large employer, with many military men being shipped off to Africa to help keep rioters in check, as missionaries have protested the colonial policy, especially in southeast Africa. A key player in this is an Indian known as Mohandas Gandhi, who opposes Britain's efforts, but is now working with the missionaries that protest British colonial policy. Roads are built in Southern Africa and Egypt heading south and north, to Lake Tanganyika. Many American jazz and blues musicians tour Britain, spreading the musical form. We give Australia the economic independence that it wants. Due to the fact that our currency is no longer working, we ask nations around the world to come together and discuss what needs to be done. We ask our ally America to work with us on the economic crisis.

  • Australian Diplomacy: We request the UK sends the industrial hardware for Iron to us, not South Africa.
  • British Diplomacy: We will send some industrial hardware to you, but our primary focus right now is on South Africa.
  • US: We will help as much as possible

Austrian Empire: The empire is united. This one statement travels quickly throughout the multiple fronts of the war, causing celebrations ranging from silent acknowledgement of fallen comrades, to full blown extensive celebrations that result in some minor collateral damages and reprimations of the soldiers. The reaction is mixed in different parts of the empire. For the portions of the empire, such as Bosnia or Transylvania, two different areas from each side that had little participation in the war, there is little to no reaction, while Vienna erupts in a "Day of Celebration" where fireworks and beer crawls are popular for the day. The Treaty of Vienna (1929) is created to be signed by all warring powers as an official end to the war, the main points being little to no reparations from Hungary, with only the imprisonment of the chief architects of their actual rebellion being the most major demand from Austria. All Hungarian POW's are released. As soon as the war ends, the effects of war debts and government spending catch up to the Austrian Imperial government. Due to the devasting economic depression that has begun, and resulted in many job loses, rampant inflation, and price hikes, the Austrian Royal government convenes in Vienna, bringing much of the Austrian royal family and their ministers, in order to find a way to surmount the current problem. After two weeks of intense deliberation, the first portion of a solution is found, and instigated. The Emperor-King Charles I instigates a policy of "Nacht Ausgabon" (Spending from nothing, literally, Dark Spending). With this, he uses the Bank of Austria to steralize the deficit spending and minimize resulting inflationary pressures. A policy of large scale fiscal stimulus, involving deficit spending, has begun. In order to combat the change in agricultural prices in the Hungarian farmlands, another policy is adopted, but strictly for the Hungarian farmlands. Cost reduction, having a limited effect, is attempted through subsidies for new technology, the spread of more information on efficient farming, and the encouragement of greater co-operation. Debt alleviation is seen as more viably successful in containing the worst social impacts. Measures to be taken include a limitation to a ban on forclosures, the postponements of payments, the reduction of interest rates and the translation of rural debts into long term loans at low and fixed interest rates.

  • Duchy of Serbia: The economic devastation of the Great Depression is felt just a day after it affects the Austrian Empire. The Archduke Maximilian begins steps to end the economic problems, using the same methods as Austria. He authorizes the Bank of Serbia to steralize the deficit spending and minimize resulting inflationary pressures. This allows for an increase in spending and a devalueing of the Serbia currency, like that of Austria, allowing the inflation to expand at a slower rate, but it is predicted by Austrian economists to be stopped and back to normal prices within two to three years of this deficit spending, just like Austria. They also begin to adopt similar methods of Austria to protect farmlands from economic devastation. 

German Empire: With the timely ending of the Austrian civil war and the outright failure of the US economy, the German populace panics as many fear losing their jobs. However, Colombia's faith in the German Mark as well as the stability of the mark thanks to plentiful supplies of gold allows for action to be taken to prevent total economic collapse of the German Empire. Germany immediately tightens its regulations on its oil even further than it was previously to allow for its stability in backing the German currency for a short while. With many businesses and nations now requiring the always faithful gold, Germany begins using some of its gold reserves to invest in companies that are on the verge of collapse due to the vastly decreased amount of industrial output as German goods. This is done to keep them afloat long enough to either retool, cut back, or establish themselves as industry willing to provide for colonial development. The vast amount of unemployed Germans becomes crushingly unbearable but due to the fiscal responsibility and the many cushion policies developed years earlier allows many Germans to weather the storm, while the government with direct orders from Kaiser Wilhelm II orders the price of all essential goods for survival locked in order to prevent the price of bread from tripling. While this is sorted out the wheat and other things used in the manufacture of essential goods are expanded in the colonies in order to provide for all the people of Germany. The crash itself and the unemployment of millions of Germans drives up the immigration to the colonies which are practically begging for people to take up residence and expand the farming, industrial and all around significance of the colonies increase. Many fiscally-responsible Germans with the ability begin immigrating to the colonies with nearly 300,000 people buying into the fact better lives and economic prosperity can be found in the colonies. With gold the only currency used for foreign buying and investment, the Germans use their converted petro-Mark to secure the domestic market as expansion of local German agriculture continues in earnest to get away from reliance on foreign nations for food. At the behest of the German crown prince and several economists based towards fixing the economy in drastic ways, Kaiser Wilhelm announces that he will take Germany and any other willing nations and instead of waiting on economic self correction, he will essentially reset the economy by erasing the debts of any nations who join and restarting trade with them in the form it was with the German Mark as the reserve currency of this rebooted system. The Economic Restoration movement is established as a purely economical reset and re-establishment committee and the Kaiser invites the nations of Austria, Norway, Netherlands, Colombia, Portugal, Brazil, and the United States, while extending an observer position to France, and Britain so they can get their houses in order to join in full. The Stimulus into certain businesses and the new colonial development policies allow for many industrial firms to make a comeback as they begin using their industry for paid for colonial development, private colonial settlement, infrastructural improvement, which can all be paid for in the standard German Mark currently backed up by oil, and protected by the confidence of the colonies, the German people, and Colombia as well. Certain economists agree that this confidence will not last long. In turn the gold production in any colony its available is nearly doubled as is silver in order to make a switch back to the gold standard or possibly a hybrid gold-silver standard. Regardless of the situation, moderate military research continues in order to keep people employed, as well as continue the development of new planes and tanks. A mostly unproven economist Hjalmar Schact is given control of the majority of economic development and recovery as the failure of previous and older thinking economists has led to it becoming like this. He is generally successful to the surprise of the doubtful nobility and quickly manages to get the German Empire back on track, The process, however, requires many of the unemployed peoples to pick up and leave for the colonies to work on public works projects, and to develop huge new slews of farms. Along with this domestic farms are improved as the government forces companies to continue accepting the petro-backed Mark in order for farms and industries to modernie their equipment as well as keep people in business. Finally to keep everything flowing generous government contracts are given to all companies not just the larger onces to keep in business, meet quotas and attempt to address the unemployed that would not leave for the colonies. The German crown prince becomes immensely happy with the visit and believes he is falling in love with the princess and heiress apparent to the Dutch throne, Princess Juliana of the Netherlands. This happens after he spent much time with her while in the Netherlands. The German government ponders what to do with Iraq and Arabia.


  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small number of German immigrants - mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research. Gabon reaches a population of about 46,000.
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the Railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German Empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in immigrants. German population reaches about 41,000.
  • Equatorial Africa: German control of this area is tenuous at best with almost 10,000 German troops used to begin securing the colony and prepare it for development by German corporations.  Equatorial Africa reaches a population of about 25,000 Germans.
  • New Frankfurt: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporation and many other newer but smaller corporations continues along the Congo River begins. Congo reaches a population of about 80,000. The current governor of Congo part of the nobility of Germany petitions to work Congo as a Duchy of the German Empire, and also sends a request to change the name from Congo to New Frankfurt. The emperor denies the request to be a duchy but does allow for the name change attempting to bring a more Germanic culture type to Africa with the name change. The kaiser informs the governor that New Frankfurt will be reconsidered at a later date when the colony becomes much more heavily populated and vastly more profitable. A local corporation which is an offshoot of a larger railroad corporation in Germany proper funds the construction of the Trans-African Railway from the city of New Borna, to the Tanzanian city of Dar es Salaam.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with Imperial incentives bringing the population up to about 14,000 German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as rubber and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Tanzania reaches a population of 47,000. The central railroad is expanded and funded by a railroad company in order to meet up and establish the trans-Africa railway through German Colonial Africa. The Tanzanian side will end in Dar es Salaam renamed to Wildhaus reflecting continuing Germanization of Africa.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany. Population grows to about 9000. The massive influx of people is almost unknown to the colonial administration and can barely be handled.
  • New Prussia (South West Africa): Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. Population reaches 150,000 and the current governor begins pushing Germany for greater status within the empire for achieving the unprecendented growth which is concurrently leading to major growth in local infrastructure.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Further colonists begin to arrive ranging to about 2000 settlers.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops 100.
  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We request a more detailed explanation, and are interested in the offer.
    • Staying on the gold standard does not prevent the tragedies of the Great Depression, and in fact, extends the troubles. Eiplec - ಠ_ಠ (talk) 12:03, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
    • It's only for foreign purchases. It was blamed for preventing the expansion of the money supply, but my domestic currency is currently not based on gold. It's based on highly regulated oil and confidence in the Mark. I never planned to fully switch back to gold but rather do something like the US eventually did, and just end up keeping very large amounts of it. The Unchallenged Conqueror #FP (Talk to Me)
    • I'd also like to add that the problem with the gold standard didn't occur until the US began shoving gold everywhere right after people started going off it. So the minor contractions before ended up in a worse contraction due to it. But for the most part a lot of foreign purchases and investment were still carried out in gold (and to this day to a degree still are, but thanks to a reserve currency this is not needed much anymore, Considering there is no longer a reserve currency such as the pound, or the dollar to rely on it makes sense that most foreign investment and stimulus would be paid for in gold in the first years in order to facilitate real growth rather than a faux confidence. So when used the right way gold can be a powerful force to reboot the economy as long as you don't completely readopt it.

Portugal: After the economic downturn, the government forms the Federal Work Corps that hires unemployed citizens and pays them to repair infrastructure in the nation and colonies. The national infrastructure is upgraded due to this, and many are employed. The president sets prices of bread, milk and other staple foods to prevent a sharp jump or drop in prices, and begin to increase trade with nations that can pay for goods.

  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We offer Colombia a trade pact.
  • We already have a trade pact. You accepted a free trade agreement with me a few turns back. Nkbeeching (talk) 14:19, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We offer Colombia a mutual defense pact.

ROC: More military academies are built. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 1,200,000 men and is now sent to the South. The army slowly moves to the borders of Guanxi. We build an airfield in Nanning. We begin to send a few soldiers around the ROC- Yunnan borders. Kong Hsiang Hsi wins the following election and Chen Du Shou becomes the vice president. They begin a policy of socialist economics. We ask for an alliance with Germany. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-start many industries and build up the army. We begin an air program and build more airplanes. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. Due to our socialist economic programs, we are less impacted by the economical collapse and the government decides to focus on infrastructure and industrial and agricultural growth.

Colombia: The government agrees to join the organization created by Germany and continues its program to consolidate the Colombian economy through austerity, and backing the Colombian peso with solid investments in resource exploitation and through the accumulation of the German mark which is deemed one of the most sound currencies at the moment. The reforms in basic wages, and industrialization continued along with funding increased health care and education. The military modernization continues under a more strict and guided budget to avoid over spending. Influence over the Ecuadorian government continues, while the Colombian economy starts to over shadow the Venezuelan economy due to larger stability and diverse production, investing into Venezuelan oil production begins and this is facilitated by the common market and lack of tariffs within the North and South American market. German merchants and investors are invited to enter the common market as a with preferencial treatment due to the close economic ties between Colombia and Germany. The construction of the arms factory continues and will be done by next year.

USSR: With the Great Depression hitting the western capitalist nations severely, Trotsky takes this golden opportunity to develop our own economy using the Communist Economic Model. But first Trotsky remembers the promise to the United States and thus creates the Red Oil Work Force (Red Drillers) in order to drill for oil. We find it and give it to the United States. There is still much more oil in our nation and we continue to drill for it in order to fuel our industry. In order to do this faster, Trotsky forms the Red Mining Work Force (Red Miners) in order to mine the Ural mountans for metals such as copper, iron, silver, and gold. Because industry continues to develop.

1930

The Economic stimulus offered by nations such as Germany and Colombia helps recover their respective economies to a light degree however unemployment remains high regardless of the semi-stability.

The Austrian debt spending begins producing problems as a major problem of Austria's fiscal crisis was from defaulting on debt in the first place. However, with many being unable to call in the debts especially overseas creditors the Austrians avoid some of the issues of spending money they already owe and that does technically not exist or have any global backed up Value. 

Gold begins to become an issue for economies that still use it to back currency, this causes a currency deflation in which countries like the US, France and Britain, all suffer from deflating currency and contraction of the supply in general which is almost unheard of. This begins to apply to the Dutch as well however previous measures cover the problems of the depression (which was pre-empted) prevents huge value changes. The German currency now backed by strictly regulated oil, and natural resources prevents the issues the British are suffering, but unemployment remains high.

The lack of the ability now for the Chinese to be able to import from foreign countries due to economic failures and industrial contraction begins to effect the Chinese economy. Japan and its economists enact a stimulus to help their economy.


Japan: Japan continues to build up its military, and asks France for a trade agreement.

Great Britain: Many protest the gold standard, especially in the industrial North region of England. The South however, is actually undergoing an economic boom, due to it being less industrial, and an agricultural boom is actually taking place (this actually happened). Automotive industry is also rising, as many are leaving traditional heavy industrial jobs due to the economic crisis. The Bren Gun is released, giving a small boost to the falling economy. Great Britain finally seeks to get off of the failing gold standard, although they are looking for something to back it with. Many seek to follow Germany's example and use oil to back it. We drill for oil in Oman, and ask Australia to drill. We also begin drilling in the Raj, where protests continue. Many see no choice but industrialization in India, and to bring military down to deal with the riots. Many Christian missionaries go to India, and literacy begins to rise. Some in Britain talk of making India a Dominion.

Netherlands: The Dutch accept the German request to join the economic committee and they hope to be able to heal their economy. Seeing the worsening condition of the economy, the nation begins to follow the German idea and begins to use oil from Indonesia and Suriname to regulate the flow of money in the economy by temporarily using it as a form of currency. Many failing businesses are given a monetary boost by the government through gold, helping keep afloat hundreds of businesses. The overhaul of its navy as well as its merchant navy continues but more focus is given to the merchant navy as it will help the Dutch nation trade with nation's around the world as well as bring in vital goods. This project helps provide jobs to thousands in dire need of them. The plans to transform the East Indies into an industrial and agricultural heartland for the Dutch nation continues as farmers are thought better farming techniques and given small amounts of fertilisers. The nation begins to build four heavy battlecruisers and employs more people which helps to ease unemployment problems. The displacement of these military vessels are classified but they are known to.be greater than fifty thousand. Funding is put to the navy to make sure the dream turns into a reality. In the East Indies, many companies are sponsored by the government in a bid to increase oil extraction and a few failing companies are given a boost to help increase competition and maximise results. The use of oil to back the currency causes the government to enact strict regulation of the valuable resource and make sure the economy does not collapse. The rubber continues to be extracted and much of it is stored up for future use as well as to build a demand for the substance. The Dutch also spread propaganda into Indonesia telling males to join up for the army and serve their nation faithfully and with honour. The nation grimly realises that it will need a war to help boost production levels as well as to get the nation back employed. They find a suitable target quite close to home and begin to build up the army, too. Outdated tank models are quickly begin to be scrapped and new and more advanced tank models are rushed through the production lines to quickly build up an army of the vehicles. A large number of Indonesian troops are brought into the nation to help train them better and teach them how to use more advanced equipment. Juliana also confesses she has been feeling a strong romantic attraction to Prince Wilhelm and sends a message to him hoping that they meet again. She was busy in national matters and could not get the message sooner. The Royal Family was also happy with the German visit.

USSR: The mining of metals in the Ural Mountains  and the drilling of oil in the southern regions is successful. As a result, new factories are opened in the cities of Moscow and Petrograd and thus more jobs are provided to the citizens of the Soviet Union. As more jobs are shifting from rural to urban, Trotsky seeks to find a solution to this problem. The solution is for the Ukraine to join us and thus we start influencing the Ukraine.

  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We request that the USSR stop influencing other nations.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. While this, the crisis is hoped to be averted as the French Republic begins taking pro-active means to keep the economy alive. However, the economy shows no important sign of recovery. The French agree to the Japanese trade offer

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins. France, as well, offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: The French local government continues asking the Dutch government to buy their Colony Guiana.

The Dutch said no two years ago.

Austrian Empire: The economic positions taken by Emperor-King Charles I and his council continue. The resulting spending and increase of the amount of Austrian money in circulation. This in turn devalues the Austrian currency and lowers the current inflation rates, keeping prices more or less normal in the Empire, but also making foreign purchases cost less when they buy from Austrian manufactuers and producers, than they would if they bought from other nations. This leads to a much greater interest in Austrian automobiles, precision mechanics, and agricultural goods, with lower prices for more items. This in turns, with Austria's current tariff rates, helps pay down some of the current debts held by other nations with Austria, but definantly does not entirely pay off the debts. The deficit spending is also moved back over to the completion of the Gunther Rusting II, which is estimated to be just one year away from completion due to previous developments on the tank. The economic laws of the Hungarian region of the Empire allow for many farms to continue to operate and avoid possible famines in many rural areas of the Empire, and recent government subsidies allow for prices to stay near the pre-crisis levels, since farmers have been bringing less to market recently. 


  • Duchy of Serbia: The processes and economic laws established by the Austrian Empire are followed with the utmost scruteny by Archduke Maximilian, with more emphasis on the Hungarian economic laws due to the nation's preference for agriculture over industry, even with the recent growths of Sarajevo and the automobile industry. 
Portugal: The government continues to hire citizens to perform infrastructure repair and upgrade. The army
B1-bis

HT-2 Tank

continues to modernize and the government plans a vote to ask for an economic alliance with the US, Germany, the UK, France, and Colombia.

The army orders the production of the HT-2 Independencia heavy tank, making the M-1 tank larger, adding two machine guns and a 105 mm cannon. Five are produced as prototypes, and initial indications show that they perform well in the nation, but may have trouble in the colonial empire.


  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We offer the Ukraine an alliance.

Colombia: financial austerity continues while the currency is tied down to resource exploitation and to the German Mark. More factories are opened creating more jobs. The middle class continues to grow as does the number of university graduates. Military modernization continues and the arms factory is finally built and production begins on a small scale as it starts up.

German Empire: The German Empire officially adopts Iraq, the Iraqi half of Kurdistan and former Ottoman Arabia as the new colonial protectorates of Iraq, Kurdistan and Arabia. The oil in these countries has allowed for the propping up of the German currency and, to a lesser degree, the German economy hence their increased value to Germany. With Colombia and the Netherlands joining the economic restoration committee the German Mark replaces the previous gambled/fake confidence with real confidence. The Germany first policy many manufacturers has gone about the full development of the colonies as provinces, equal to the various kingdoms, and duchies of the Empire. The German government officially creates the viceroyalties of New Frankfurt and New Prussia following internal and external, as well as economic benefits from this. The German government finishes the Panzer II as well as the other offshoot prototype named the Panzer III which is expected to be completed by 1933-35. The German military also sees more forces based on volunteering which inadvertently pushes the armed forces number to nearly 320,000. German immigrants to colonies continues to soar as positive reports from families, the media and the government itself declares the colonies as the haven of German business and its unemployed peoples and uses its recently stabilized currencies to finance trips for people that can't afford it themselves. The German industries in the homeland and all the major colonies with new industries are barely able to keep up with the need for people to buy land for new houses and large communities begin to develop in major cities. The major immigration of Germans to Africa begins to push foreward population inequality with African populations being gained on by German ones. The German economy begins to force a recovery in the industrial sector based on this immigration. Despite of the depression, a new and suddenly huge German car manufacturer Volkswagen is started by a trade union. The stabilizing and recovering economy allows for affordable cars to be used by the mainstream German people. The increasingly richer colonies begin to place orders as well. The German economy begins its own minor recovery as the economic policies of its new economic ministers vastly improves the conditions. Various smaller German businesses once close to failing are saved due to internal German business. The minor recovery of the industrial sector is threatened by Austrian, remaining British, remaining American, and Japanese industry, and the import or purchase of all industrial goods from these nations is prohibited while the industrial giant that is Germany works on the unprecedented push to improve the colonies and expand their business. A sort of economic equilibrium begins to form as deficit spending, drastically falling unemployment (as it goes to employment hungry colonies) sets up Germany to recovery by 1933 or 1934. The timely injection of stimulus into the economy and the re-organization of the economies of several countries has saved the German economy by a light amount.


  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small number of German immigrants - mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research. Gabon reaches a population of about 20,000.

The emperor denies the request to be a duchy but does allow for the name change attempting to bring a more Germanic culture type to Africa with the name change. The Kaiser officially names New Frankfurt a viceroyalty putting the new governor as the viceroy at behest of the legislative branches of government. This is done after many people which have moved to the colonies begin demanding the equality of the colonies to Germany proper. This inability of the German economy to cope with this type of dissent has culminated in the colony being named a viceroyalty.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with imperial incentives bringing the population up to about 29,000 German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as rubber and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Tanzania reaches a population of 97,000. The central railroad is expanded and funded by a railroad company in order to meet up and establish the trans-Africa railway through German Colonial Africa. The Tanzanian side will end in Dar es Salaam renamed to Wildhaus reflecting continuing Germanization of Africa.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established.

  • New Prussia: Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. Population reaches 250,000 and the current governor begins pushing Germany for greater status within the empire for achieving the unprecendented growth which is concurrently leading to major growth in local infrastructure. The Local population surging and taking advantage of the many readily available jobs has led to the governor to request that New Prussia be made into a Viceroyalty and lays out a step by step plan that every German colony may become a Viceroyalty under Germany with eventuall centralization in effect as well. The kaiser and the government seeing many advantages of this as well as the successful Germanization programs looks into it seeing it as the culmination of creating a new Germany.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Further colonists begin to arrive ranging to about 2000 settlers.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops 100.

1931

The German, Dutch, Colombian, and British Economies begin to recover somewhat With Austria recovering minorly. Austrias Sovereign debt crisis still reigns supreme over many of their economic recoveries. Austrias Currency Davaluation however has allowed the country to enjoy a nice respite before it has to make its next round of very heavy debt payments. The French also suffer to a degree as their Debt payments are also forcing their economy to scale back in expansion and work on stability while they pay off their war debt. 

The Payments by the Austrian and French allow the US to recover confidence to a degree. Economists everywhere begin looking for different ways to support currency rather than with natural resources, or Precious metals.

The Russian industry gains a massive bonus as out of work high level industrialists from Austria, Germany, the US, Britain, and France all make their homes and allow of the fast paced and expert industrialization of the USSR. The Cities of the Russian Republis in the East behin to expand in order to cope with the almost 15 million immigrants from the West.

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military. Infrastructure is improved as well.

USSR:The metals of the Ural Mountains enter factories, and some are convernted into steel. With steel as the finished product of some factories, it is easier to build more things faster at a good quality. We use this steel to increase the construction of homes, hospitals, and schools so that everyone shall get affortable housing, decent healthcare, and the chance to learn. Meanwhile in the rural areas of the Soviet Union, farmers start to feel neglected as Trotsky has placed significant focus on industry rather than agricultural. Trotsky assures that he hasn't forgot about the farmers of the Soviet Union and he is considering how to improve the lives of farmers. This worries some industrial workers, however, as they think the focus will entirely shift from urban to rural. Trotsky notices this growing resentment between industrial workers and rural farmers and thus calls upon a meeting between him and respresentives of the two groups in order to reach a reasonable comporomise. Meanwhile during the meeting Rykov is put in charge to over see the construction of public buildings and also over sees the further influencing of Ukraine, and does so by giving Ukraine some aid in order to help them reconstruct.

ROC: More military academies are built. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 1,400,000 men and is now sent to the South. The army slowly moves to the borders of Guanxi. We build an airfield in Nanning. We begin to send a few soldiers around the ROC- Yunnan borders. Kong Hsiang Hsi wins the following election and Chen Du Shou becomes the vice president. They begin a policy of socialist economics. We ask for an alliance with Germany. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-start many industries and build up the army. We begin an air program and build more airplanes. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. Due to our socialist economic programs, we are less impacted by the economical collapse and the government decides to focus on infrastructure and industrial and agricultural growth. We begin to build more iron mills.


France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. While this, the crisis is hoped to be averted as the French Republic begins taking pro-active means to keep the economy alive. However, the economy shows no important sign of recovery. The French agree to the Japanese trade offer

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins. France, as well, offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: Industry is built up in the region.

Brazil: After long months of military buildup, we decide to invade Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, and Argentina in an attempt to grab their natural resources. We continue industrialization and begin asking for German and British military vehicle designs so we can use them for our defense. We also decide to prepare for an invasion to the north. For the moment we secure the south of the continent.

  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We terminate the alliance due to unneeded aggression.
  • You have legitimately zero reasons for this. You're a dictatorial state suffering from the great depression, with good relations with the majority of your neighbors. No random invasions. Even WW2 had four years of buildup and tensions. This is outright random. Another post like this and I will ban you permanently. The Unchallenged Conqueror #FP (Talk to Me)

Colombia: Scared of the sudden Brazilian threat, Colombia returns to militarizing the frontier and makes sure that Peru and Venezuela remember their defence pact (it was accepted in a RNG early in the game) and the expansion of the military is resumed, with a solid arms production stockpiling begins. Colombia agrees to the Portuguese defence pact, and requests that Germany deploy some troops to Colombia to help curb Brazilian aggression. Military build up continues and the production from the arms factory begins to pick up. Economic recovery continues under the austerity program and under the guided industrialization program. North-eastern Colombia is rapidly becoming the industrial and commercial hub of the country due to the closeness to the Venezuelan border and due to the large ports. Efforts to support rebel groups in Brazil are resumed, and Brazil is warned to cease its expansionist agenda saying it will only bring instability to the region and most likely end up in defeat for the country. In secret, Colombia promises to back Argentina and the southern countries if Brazil invades them on a large scale.

  • Portuguese Diplomacy: We offer an alliance to Colombia, and offer to sell them another 100 armored cars for 20 million dollars.
  • The Colombian government respectfully refuses as it can't afford extravagant spending. However, the government will accept Portuguese support.

Portugal: We offer support to Colombia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, and Argentina if invaded. 5000 troops are mobilized, and the ironclad the former NRP Vasco de Gama is recommissioned as a troop carrier. 20 HT-2 tanks are produced, along with 50 more armored cars.

To improve the economy, the government begins to aid small businesses with funding, and sets up an airport on the Canary Islands to ease Trans-Atlantic travel.

Austrian Empire: The economic laws continue to be re-inforced, and the devaluation of the Austrian currency to jump-start both the economy and pay off debts continues but hits a new challenge. The current system of the gold standard is currently slowing the effect of the economic laws and suspending gold convertability. Due to this, the decision is made by Emperor-King Charles I and his council to remove the Austrian Empire from the gold standard and instead float the Krone on foreign markets and banks. This allows the devaluation of the Krone to continue as normal, helping fix the Austrian economy and pay back foreign loans, this time, solely in Krones. Funding of failing banks, industries and farms begins now that the restrictive monetary policies of the gold standard are no longer active anymore in Austria. The Gunther Rusting II completes its design, being more heavily armored and faster than the Gunther Rusting I, but with the same amount of firepower, leading to an interest in making a more powerful tank gun. However, this interest is put aside for now, in order to deal with the depression. Another tank factory is constructed for the Gunther Rusting II, creating a small, but reliable number of jobs. In order to provide a great number of jobs, the council, consisting of Minister-Presidents, and several archdukes and dukes of Austria, creates a national project of public works, designed at constructing new bridges and roads for the Empire. While this decision is made independent of the Emperor-King and technically illegal and treasonous, it is allowed by the Emperor-King to continue as he fears a loss of public support for stopping the law and introducing it himself.

  • Duchy of Serbia: The processes and economic laws established by the Austrian Empire are continually followed. Following Austria's decision, Archduke Maximilian of Austria removes the Duchy of Serbia from its gold standard for the same ease of monetary policies and economic recovery sought by the Austrian Empire. 
  • Duchy of Serbia Diplomacy (Need's mod response): The Archduke Maximilian of Austria requests to meet and discuss with the current King of Montenegro, Michael Petrovic-Njegos, in order to begin to possibility of establishing a great Serbian state for Serbians across Europe.

Netherlands: The nation continues to regulate oil around the nation, using it as a form of currency. Many failing businesses are continously given a monetary boost by the government through gold, helping keep afloat hundreds of businesses, but many in the government begin to decide that they should stop giving this boost to try to help the nation's economy. However, the nation does not have a major debt to pay off due to the fact it did not participate in World War II. The overhaul of its navy as well as its merchant navy continues. Hundreds of merchant ships have been overhauled and upgraded and are released from dry dock to trade with other nations once more. Focus is put back to the Dutch navy and more money begins to flow into the construction and researching of the Imperial Battlecrusiers. This project helps provide jobs to thousands in dire need of them. The plans to transform the East Indies into an industrial and agricultural heartland for the Dutch nation continues as farmers are thought better farming techniques and given small amounts of fertilisers. In the East Indies, many companies are sponsored by the government in a bid to increase oil extraction and a few failing companies are given a boost to help increase competition and maximise results. The use of oil to back the currency causes the government to enact strict regulation of the valuable resource and make sure the economy does not collapse. The rubber continues to be extracted and much of it is stored up for future use as well as to build a demand for the substance. The Dutch also spread propaganda into Indonesia telling males to join up for the army and serve their nation faithfully and with honour. The nation continues their buildup to war and allows females to join up as nurses. Most of the outdated tank models are scrapped and and new and more advanced tank models continue to be rushed through the production lines to quickly build up an army of the vehicles. A large number of Indonesian troops are brought into the nation to help train them better and teach them how to use more advanced equipment. Juliana sends a secret message to Crown Prince Wilhelm, asking him whether he would be willing to allow Germany to share some of its tank blueprints which the Dutch are in dire need of. The Dutch governemnt also sends an official military alliance offer to the German government and hope to strengthen the growing relations. Many Dutch families also begin to leave for Indonesia and Suriname seeing the condition of jobs in the Dutch nation and move to set up new businesses or establish a new farming life. This totals over 35,000 people heading to Indonesia. However, political problems begin to arise in the East Indies as two rival political groups begin to gain power in the rural areas of the colony. Both advocate more freedom from the Dutch and begin to clash against one another. A smaller third group also emerges, which states that they should not look to go to war and should try to establish a more peaceful discussion with the main Dutch government. However, neither of the two major groups pay heed and continue to campaign in villages, while Indonesian Colonial troups head to the Netherlands...

Australia: A new government takes power, and they request that Australia rejoins the pound. Meanwhile, we continue to create steel. Oil is exploited still, and sent to the UK. We ask that the UK sends more industrial equipment to us, as they have no reason to send it to South Africa, as there is far less Iron in South Africa, and it is inefficient to set up operations like this. In the time before we are (hopefully) returned to the Pound Sterling, we set our Currency by strictly regulated Oil, as Germany did. We take the Mark as our reserve currency.

German Empire: The German Empire officially adopts Iraq, the Iraqi half of Kurdistan and former Ottoman Arabia as the new colonial protectorates of Iraq, Kurdistan and Arabia. The oil in these countries has allowed for the propping up of the German currency and, to a lesser degree, the German economy hence their increased value to Germany. With Colombia and the Netherlands joining the economic restoration as well as Britain (hopefully) and various nations adopting the Mark as the reserve currency, the Germans seeing the increasing amounts of this system officially prints the Mark as a fiat currency pegging it in relatable exhanges for gold, silver and other precious metals. This is used to officially end the inflation of various currencies that take the mark as reserve currency, and allow for the economy to once again remain fully stable and non fluctuating economy world wide. While expected to be a slow process, in order to evaluate the reserve currency status, Germany extends its offer to become a reserve currency to all nations worldwide. Germany also asks the United States to become another reserve currency due to their greater potential industrially, and ability to back up their dollar with more resources such as gold, silver, oil, and other goods and services. Germany continues movement into the Panzer III tank. The designs for the Panzer I and II are sent to the Dutch. Significant immigration continue to the colonies with about 300,000 estimated less than the previous year.


  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small number of German immigrants - mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled slightly for research. Gabon reaches a population of about 40,000.
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the Railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German Empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in immigrants. German population reaches about 140,000.
  • Equatorial Africa: German control of this area is tenuous at best with almost 10,000 German troops used to begin securing the colony and prepare it for development by German corporations.  Equatorial Africa reaches a population of about 60,000 Germans.
  • New Frankfurt: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporation and many other newer but smaller corporations continues along the Congo River begins. Congo reaches a population of about 150,000. The current governor of Congo part of the nobility of Germany petitions to work Congo as a Duchy of the German Empire, and also sends a request to change the name from Congo to New Frankfurt. The emperor denies the request to be a duchy but does allow for the name change attempting to bring a more Germanic culture type to Africa with the name change. The Kaiser officially names New Frankfurt a viceroyalty putting the new governor as the viceroy at behest of the legislative branches of government. This is done after many people which have moved to the colonies begin demanding the equality of the colonies to Germany proper. This inability of the German economy to cope with this type of dissent has culminated in the colony being named a viceroyalty.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with imperial incentives bringing the population up to about 70,000 German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as rubber and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Tanzania reaches a population of 140,000. The central railroad is expanded and funded by a railroad company in order to meet up and establish the trans-Africa railway through German Colonial Africa. The Tanzanian side will end in Dar es Salaam renamed to Wildhaus reflecting continuing Germanization of Africa.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany. Population grows to about 25,000. The massive influx of people is almost unknown to the colonial administration and can barely be handled.
  • New Prussia: Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. Population reaches 290,000 and the current governor begins pushing Germany for greater status within the empire for achieving the unprecendented growth which is concurrently leading to major growth in local infrastructure. The local population surging and taking advantage of the many readily available jobs has led to the governor to request that New Prussia be made into a Viceroyalty and lays out a step by step plan that every German colony may become a Viceroyalty under Germany with eventuall centralization in effect as well. The kaiser and the government seeing many advantages of this as well as the Successful Germanization programs looks into it seeing it as the culmination of creating a new Germany.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Further colonists begin to arrive ranging to about 3000 settlers.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops Settlers is about 1500.

1932

Thanks to the wise policies of several nations particularly Austria, Germany, the US, and the British the worst recessive parts of the Depression are nearing their end with Recovery expected to begin taking place in late 1933. Many people begin asking for a programs or systems to prevent such another Global economic meltdown and begin Requesting that the US take control of Developing itself as a Reserve currency rather than the Volatility of Colonial empires such as Britain, France or Germany.

France begins to recover as well however extremely nationalistic politics have led to the French economy beginning to recovery at an expedited rate shocking much of the World. Nationalists begin to rise up in Spain too with their party beginning to gain moderate control of lightly populated areas.

The Chinese economy begins to advance very far as does Japan's with the Japanese managing large exponential growth.

A man named Adolf Hitler fails to emerge into politics but does, however, get noticed for his architecture which he claims to have improved upon independently given his previous disposition for it. He does, however, claim to run for political office once again.

^He'd either become a famous architect for Germany, a successful author or chancellor for the Emperor. You cannot write off such a powerful force in history in a single stroke.

Famous architect, please! Make him a famous architect!

USSR: A compromise between the farmers and the factory workers is reached with Trotsky giving the final compromise.  The compromise is having more factories in urban areas produce more farming tools for rural areas. This way urban people have more jobs and rural people can farm more efficiently and effectively. Trotsky returns to Leningrad and Rykov steps down from the seat of political power. As an award for Rykov's co-operation, Trotsky keeps Rykov in command of the construction of homes, hospitals and schools across the Soviet Union. Under Rykov construction goes greatly and they should all be completed by next year. With Trotsky back in the seat of political power, he enacts the compromise which should go into full swing by next year. 

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military. Infrastructure is improved as well.

ROC: More military academies are built. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 1,400,000 men and is now sent to the South. The army slowly moves to the borders of Guanxi. We build an airfield in Nanning. We attack Yunnan and attack qujing with 400,000 soldiers. After its capture, we move on to Kunming. Then, we dissolve the Yunnan Clique. Kong Hsiang Hsi wins the following election and Chen Du Shou becomes the vice president. They begin a policy of socialist economics. We ask for an alliance with Germany. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-start many industries and build up the army. We begin an air program and build more airplanes. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. Due to our socialist economic programs, we are less impacted by the economic collapse and the government decides to focus on infrastructure and industrial and agricultural growth. We begin to build more iron mills.

Austrian Empire: The economic laws continue to be re-inforced and the devaluation of the Austrian currency in order to counteract the depression continues, allowing more foreign investments and purchases of Austrian goods. With the challenged and rigidity of the gold standard now gone, the economic laws continue more or less unhindered. The council convenes again, without the Emperor-King Charles I as he is away on an improptu trip to Serbia to meet his brother. They decided that once the effects of the depression have passed, and industrial output and the unemployment numbers return to normal, the Austrian Krone will be backed by silver instead of the gold that has been dropped, and the foreign markets that are volatile. With German and the United States seeming competition for becoming a world reserve currency, any minute faults with either currency at sudden points is believed to be damning for the nations involved. Also, it is believed that the two currencies will attempt to outcompete each other so drastically, that prices will fluxuate rapidly to change with the current economic climate in order to gain an advantage over the other. Due to this, a quarter of the Bank of Austria's gold reserves are placed on exchange to be exchanged for the same amount of silver in monetary values, not weight. The new bridges and roads projects continue in the Empire, providing many jobs to those unfortunate to still not have one. 

  • Duchy of Serbia: The processes and economic laws established by the Austrian Empire are continually followed. Following Austria's decision, Archduke Maximilian of Austria removes the Duchy of Serbia from its gold standard for the same ease of monetary policies and economic recovery sought by the Austrian Empire. 
  • Duchy of Serbia Diplomacy (Need's mod response): The Archduke Maximilian of Austria requests to meet and discuss with the current King of Montenegro, Michael Petrovic-Njegos, in order to begin to possibility of establishing a great Serbian state for Serbians across Europe.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. While this, the crisis is hoped to be averted as the French Republic begins taking pro-active means to keep the economy alive. However, the economy shows no important sign of recovery. The French agree to the Japanese trade offer

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.
  • Morocco: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy. The process of the creation of a new government continues in Morocco.
  • West Africa: The creation of internal infrastructure begins as well as the establishment of local governing parties to allow a more easier control of the region, the region continues industrializing, with aid of French companies.
  • Djibouti: The creation of ports and a maritime industry begins. France, as well, offers to buy Somaliland from Britain.
  • French Indochina: The creation of mining industries begin as well as the settling of French peoples in the southern most regions to allow easier control of the territory.
  • New Caledonia: Tourism and fishing industries begin to grow in the region.
  • Tunis: The creation of Christian settlements in the region continues as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Africans to the French democracy.
  • Guiana: Industry is built up in the region.

German Empire: The German empire manages its recovery well utilizing its increased dedication to the colonies and a largely newly elected Legislative branch, to begin funding a residential program for the huge influx of immigrants to the colonies. The economy, still in a recovery, begins to open back up at the request of the Kaiser, and Legislative branches of government, as the industrial sectors has recovered much of their lost business by colonial expansion and buildup, the ability for other industries to once again compete with German companies is allowed. Kaiser Wilhelm II officially following the solving of the majority of the crisis abdicates in favor of his grandson Wilhelm IV. The New Kaiser invites the Dutch Crown princess to his crowning ceremony along with the royal family. Seeing as the economic equilibrium policies of the previous session of government have been currenctly working the new Kaiser allows for their continuation and allows nearly 360,000 German immigrants to the colonies. The Kaiser also appreciative of Gabons contribution to the stabilization of the German mark and the all around economy names Gabon a Duchy and within the reforms of the empire includes the Viceroyalties of New Frankfurt, and New Prussia, and the Duchy of Gabon into the Legislative branches of government and adds an allowance for the German colonies to attain the status as these other colonies have by securing certain export, or economic ability with significant contributions, or a certain population threshhold. The German military finishes its dive bombers the Junker K-47 which is a dive bomber. The Junker bomber is also completed however another is already in the works as a mass production unit longrange bomber. The Heinkel corporation is working on this as government spending has allowed for the resuming of major expansion of the military and its R&D programs again.

Dutch Diplomacy: The Crown Princess would be delighted to attend.

Spain:begins to reform the economy. Tanks are built. Asks for an alliance with UK and France.

With what money? ... also posting on a previous turn.

1933

The French economy continues to surge as nationalistic policies and colonial exploitation have jump-started their economy.

The Soviet industry continues to expand exponentially as Soviet infuence over Ukraine secures massive control.

The Chilean government experiences a violent overthrow of its government establishing an extremely nationalistic nation in place of the previous one. This, in turn, has come from the huge issues stemming from the great depression.

I don't know if this would have happened, as France has been influencing it since 1919 - 1920 and by this time the government would be under France's aid.
The collapse of governments happens all the time, not to mention the early 20th century was a really bad time for Chile. A solid government taking control after this instability isn't implausible and actually happened. It's just one year later than OTL (considering I forgot to look into it). Also, I believe your influencing South America would be a bit implausible considering the Monroe Doctrine and France's decreasing prestige and influence since the outset of the 20th century. The Unchallenged Conqueror #FP (Talk to Me)

Japan: Japan continues to build up its military. Infrastructure is improved as well.

Netherlands: The nation finally pulls out of the slump successfully and its citizens begin to find various jobs once more. Oil regulation is removed and the economy switches back to using gold to back its currency seeing small but steady and robust growth once more. The government stops lending money to businesses as many grow on their own now. Those which do not soon are bought out and become part of larger companies. With the overhaul of the merchant navy complete, the proper navy is given focus. More money begins to flow into the construction and reseaching of the Imperial Battlecrusiers and helps provide jobs to thousands in dire need of them. However, much of the funding is derived indirectly through the crops and spices sold from the East Indies. The plans to transform the East Indies into an industrial and agricultural heartland for the Dutch nation continue as farmers are taught better farming techniques and given small amounts of fertilisers. In the East Indies, many Dutch oil companies continue to be sponsored by the Dutch government and continue to grow. However, most of them do not manage to produce enough oil due to the fact that the equipment needed to extract the oil is out of their hands. As a result, Shell buys most of these companies over and grows its expanding business. The rubber continues to be extracted and much of it is stored up for future use as well as to build a demand for the substance. The Dutch also spread propaganda into the East Indies - telling males to join the army and serve their nation faithfully and with honour. The nation continues their buildup to war and allows females to join up nurses. With the blueprints of the tank models received, the factories begin to produce the new Panzer I and II tanks rapidly and begin to equip their army with these new divisions which have been rushed out of the production line. Over a million colonial troops were brought into the Netherlands to prepare for an invasion of Belgium - which the nation views as a nation whose people need to be under Dutch governance like they used to be. Propaganda is spewed out before the war telling the people of the nation that the Belgians should be Dutch. Many more Dutch families leave for the East Indies and establish new lives in the nation. A famine begins in the East Indies as its people have been farming cash crops and not have been focusing enough on growing foodstuffs. This means that although many farmers have been starting to live better lives, the sudden fact that there is no food in the market means they cannot buy any food. Whatever food is there is saved for the colonial troops, their families, all white settlers and government personnel and their families. This causes the nationalistic and the socialist sides to clash and the East Indies breaks out into open civil war. Both burn each others' farms which escalate the problem of the famine and while hundreds of thousands begin to starve - both sides keep fighting on. Colonial troops retreat to strongholds and leave most of the colony in disarray, with the lack of troops as most have been moved to the Netherlands. The border with British Malay is still manned, however. Meanwhile, the Dutch declare war on Belgium and realise that they cannot send troops to help quell the erupting civil war in the East Indies (which happens after the declaration of war).

USSR:The compromise between the farmers and the industrial workers goes into full swing and farmers are able to harvest more food and thus the factory workers are able to produce more farming tools, building materials, and other things. Increased agricultal equals increased industry and the system works excellently. The system works so excellently that the construction of homes, hospitals and schools are completed. With this completed, everyone has a place to live, a place to get treatment, and a place to learn. The majority of the homes are apartment complexes in which families are able to sleep, eat, drink, and excrete. Hospitals are government funded so that they are available to everyone and we receive foreign doctors who are out of work to come run our hospitals and we train future doctors in our nation. For education our students are taught reading and writing out of Marx's and Engel's Communist Manifesto as well as basic math. Students are taught the importance of roles in society with the basic role being the industrial worker or the farmer and most students pursue this role. Other students, however, train to be politicians, doctors, nurses, scientists, engineers, and educators.

The Kaiser officially names New Frankfurt a viceroyalty putting the new governor as the viceroy at behest of the legislative branches of government. This is done after many people which have moved to the colonies begin demanding the equality of the colonies to Germany proper. This inability of the German economy to cope with this type of dissent has culminated in the colony being named a viceroyalty.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony.

Rykov's main job is to make sure the system continues to run smoothly during military build up. Trotsky and Rykov are both in charge of geopolitical relations with other nations and anything else in between domestic policy and military policy. Both Trotsky and Rykov agree to divide the Defensive Muscovian and Defensive Leningradian forces into the Red Police Force, Red Firefighter Force, and the Red Sanitation force. With Rykov focusing on domestic policy, and Trotsky focusing on military policy, Nikolai Bukarin steps up to be in charge of the Red Police, Firefighter, and Sanitation forces. Both Rykov and Trotsky agree to this and also let him be in charge of geopolitical relations so in case of disagreements between Rykov and Trotsky, Bukarin can be the deciding factor. With this being decided, they go their separate ways with Rykov making sure that the system is running smoothly, Bukarin being in charge of the Red Police, Firefighters, and Sanitation. Each of these forces go through training in law enforcement, firefighting, and health. These new forces should roll out completely by next year. Meanwhile Trotsky returns to the Red Army and their is much rejoycing among the older more expierenced and high ranking Red Soldiers with much memories of the Russian Civil War. For the new Red Soldiers there is much training and much discipline being enforced upon them. Now that the Ukraine is under our influence, we have enough agriculture to support this industrial and military expansion, with industrial expansion we give some to the Ukraine and so it benefits us both. Because of this mutual beneficial relationship, we form the Moscow Pact between us and the Ukraine. We invite other Eastern European nations, as well, to join the Moscow Pact such as Belarus, Latvia, Estonia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Sweden (Need an RNG on this). We also declare our support for the PRC, as they share the same Communist ideology that we originally fought for, and thus send aid to them. We do remember the help of the ROC, however, and we wish to sign an NAP with the ROC.  

ROC Dip: Our country believes that China should be united, not divided, and thus, we will try to stop Anti-Communist riots and will ask the Communist party to rejoin our country. We ask USSR to assist us in this process, which will spread socilaist thought in China.

Austrian Empire: The economic laws regarding the devaluation of the currency and the subsidies of various industries and farms plans to near its end the next year, with wage and price control laws also set to be introduced in order to prevent a monetary catastrophe from slowly raising the price of the Austrian Krone once more, backed by a more plentiful silver standard. The council of economic advisors called for by the Emperor-King of Austria also propose to re-introduce the gold standard at a certain point in the revaluation of the Krone, as a kind of bar to prevent either standard from going entirely volatile and reducing the value of the Krone in a time of economic prosperity. Due to the subsidies to various industries and farms that have accumulated over the time of the depression, many factories and farms either re-open, or in the case of farms, go back to their regular field size, and the job protection law passed the previous year allows many of these factories and farms to immediately add thousands of workers back nearly immediately. The development of a more powerful main armament of the Guther Rusting II tank continues, hiring a few hundred engineers and military-grade scientists to work on the project, but in the effort to keep state secrets, they are assigned to only work on individual projects, and not allowed to know the full design, nor any other groups individual projects.

Netherlands: Citizens continue to be able to find employment - with the biggest employer becoming the army due to its need for soldiers against Belgium. Many mergers in companies continue to take place. However, most companies have by now stabilised.

More money begins to flow into the construction and researching of the Imperial Battlecrusiers and helps provide jobs to thousands in dire need of them. However, much of the funding continues to be derived indirectly through the crops and spices sold from the East Indies. The plans to transform the East Indies into an industrial and agricultural heartland for the Dutch nation is significantly slowed down as a civil war begins between rival factions of the nation. In the East Indies, many Dutch oil companies continue to be sponsored by the Dutch government and continue to grow and are protected by numerous colonial troops. Shell continues to become a bigger oil company. The rubber continues to be extracted and much of it is stored up for future use as well as to build a demand for the substance. The production of the Panzer I and II help increase tank numbers and help made the first Dutch tank divisions. The invasion of Belgium continues at full pace and much progress is made as the tired Belgian army faces against a motivated Dutch army. Many more Dutch families leave for the East Indies and establish new lives in the nation. In the East Indian civil war, both sides have obtained firearms from various sources and are attacking each other with them. This causes huge amouts of crops to be lost and both sides try to seize the best crops for themselves. The Dutch make sure both sides continue to fight against each other as if both sides attack the Dutch - they will become overwhelmed. Colonial troops retreat to strongholds and leave most of the colony in disarray, with the lack of troops as most have been moved to the Netherlands. The border with British Malay is still manned, however. Most food continues to be saved for Dutch and those of mixed origin and the remainder of troops help to make sure they are kept safe. The smaller third side which advocated peaceful relations with the Dutch are supplied with advanced firearms and ammunition and they help to protect the Dutch as well as launching attacks of their own against the two enemy sides. Crown Princess Juliania accepts the Kaiser's hand in marriage.

Large numbers of oil companies continue to receive grants but most are bought over by Shell, which continues to become a bigger oil company. The rubber continues to be extracted and much of it is stored up for future use as well as to build a demand for the substance. The production of the Panzer I and II help increase tank numbers and help made the first Dutch tank divisions. Belgium has completely been conquered and the Dutch march in triumphantly into the cities of Antwerpen and Brussels. The whole nation is divided into two major military areas of control - Wallonia and Flanders. Flanders being Dutch-speaking is viewed upon favorably and major propaganda campaigns are unleashed on the area to make it fully a part of the Netherlands. Antwerpen becomes the capital of this zone. The south is mostly French speaking and because of this, is viewed with distrust. Reconstruction projects soon begin in the newly administered Dutch zones. However, most of the fighting was restricted to open fields and the cities have not taken major damage. The Queen makes a speech on the monumentous event, before announcing her abdication to her daughter Juliana. Juliana becomes Queen of the Netherlands and its territories and officially accepts the Union of the Ntherlands and Germany. Parliament also passes the motion after heavy debate. However, many wonder if they will become consumed by German culture. Many more Dutch families leave for the East Indies and establish new lives in the nation. 60,000 Dutch citizens head to the East Indies while over 150,000 citizens of the Wallonia zone also head to the East Indies to avoid the discrimination they believe will occur toward them. In the East Indian civil war, both sides continue to fight on and various cities and towns are attacked. The Dutch continue to keep both sides pitted against each other by spreading misinformation. Hundreds of thousands of troops are drafted in from the Netherlands as with the end of the Belgian war, they can finally look to establish order in the various areas which have been struck. This helps bolster Dutch colonial troops numbers which are now able to extend their control and bring much needed farmlands under Dutch control and food crops begin to be grown once more. The border with British Malay sees more troops as the greater number of soldiers help fortify the area. The third side in the civil war begins to gain more following and it continues to launch attacks at the other two sides - doing much of the dirty work the Dutch require to be done. They cause more unrest in the other two sides and make sure they remain desperate and that neither side gets the upper hand.

Austrian Empire: The economic laws regarding devaluation of the currency have officially ended, yet the subsidies to industries and farms continues. The Wage and Price Control Act is enabled by the councilmen and the Emperor-King in order to allow for a flexible adjustment of wages and prices of goods as the Austrian Krone is sure to fluctuate as it begins a slow move to be backed by silver. As the devaluation of the Austrian Krone is ended, enough of the gold reserves is traded to be able to have enough silver to back the current amount of Krone in circulation. The value differences between silver and gold allow Austria to gain much silver for little gold. In order to continue to fund many of the governments ventures, savings bonds and government bonds become a very propagandized item, its purchase being equated with paying for the future of the children of the Empire. Factories and farms continue to reopen, though at a less steady of a rate as before, but definantly more than have been opening for many years, allowing more jobs and a large increase in industrial and agricultural output. The development of the Guther Rusting II tank armament ends with the development of a more powerful main armament for the tank, being a 38mm in calibre. The gun is set to be reiintroduced on newer Guther Rusting II tanks, and a series of wargame exercises are planned to be taken place the next year to test the competance of the Austrian Army. The Public Works projects continue, developing the industry of Austria, as well as providing jobs.

  • Duchy of Serbia: The processes and economic laws established by the Austrian Empire are continually followed. Plans to adopt the Austrian plan for establishment of a silver standard, and the slow end, and the Duchy of Serbia finally adopts the same Public Works policies of Austria, beginning to hire people to build roads, bridges, airfields, dams, and electrical lines. The Serbian military forces begin to be positioned at the Serbian-Montenegro border due to the response of the King of Montenegro.

ROC: More military academies are built. We begin building train rails. Also, a strong military is in the making and dockyards are constructed in major ports. The army has reached 2,000,000 men.

They begin a policy of socialist economics. Our military begin cracking down on overly re-active Anti-Communist rioters and it gains support as most soldiers were peasants in support of Communism thoughts. Chen makes a speech, saying that the Anti-Communist are secedists and they are against a united China. We ask for an alliance with Germany. With the country stabilized by a strong government, we re-start many industries and build up the army. We begin an air program and build more airplanes. Co-operative organizations are built to increase farming output. Railroads are built and we begin to send soldiers around the country to further stabilize it. We begin to build more iron mills. We begin to build tanks and we begin to buy horses to atttack the Tibetan Kingdom in Ali. We slowly send soldiers to Ali. Anti-Communists begin to calm down as the Communists begin to merge back to the republic.

1936

Soviet industry has nearly reached its height as is its ever increasing influence as White Russia begins to fail from its lack of ability to industrialize and its relative lack of population despite post civil war growth.

Ukraine begins to fully fall under Soviet influence with some dedicated Communists beginning to push for Ukrainian integration into the USSR.

The Japanese military once again urges the government to invade Northern China while there is still a strong Japan threatening to disobey orders.

ROC D: We are moved by the Emperor's refusal and we decide to fight the soldiers if they try to rebel against your glorious Emperor.

USSR: Rykov continues to supervise the industrial/agricultural system and Bukarin continues to supervise the police, firefighter and sanitation forces. Meanwhile, Trotsky continues building up and training the army as they secretly prepare for war against the Russian Republic. We await the full integration of the Ukraine into the Soviet Union and send diplomats to Kiev in order to hammer out how the integration process will work. We again invite all the nations previously invited to join the Moscow Pact.

France: Continues stabilizing the nation. Continues influencing Chile and Uruguay. Military is built up as well as navy and the quarantine for those seeks continue while being researched by the French Bio labs. France reluctantly offers to openly help the White Russians to hold Western Russia or some territory in front of the Red Russians although now is leaning toward a peace treaty dividing Russia. While this, the crisis is hoped to be averted as the French Republic begins taking pro-active means to keep the economy alive. However, the economy shows no important sign of recovery. The French agree to the Japanese trade offer

  • Algeria: The creation of Christian settlements in the region begins as well with the creation of new local governments to allow the integration of the Algerians into the French democracy. The population of the northern regions continues.

Portugal: The government begins to fortify the colonies to protect against enemy aggression. A new tank is put into design and several new aircraft are proposed as the air force operates a handful of aircraft. The industry is upgraded to accommodate this, giving people more jobs.

German Empire: The German empire manages its recovery well utilizing its increased dedication to the colonies and a largely newly elected legislative branch, to begin funding a residential program for the huge influx of immigrants to the colonies. The economy, still in a recovery, begins to open back up at the request of the kaiser, andlLegislative branches of government, as the industrial sectors has recovered much of their lost business by colonial expansion and buildup, the ability for other industries to once again compete with German companies is allowed. The German government also refuses to comment on the Dutch invasion of Belgium but does quietly mobilize two cruisers and a few destroyers in the area to prevent the conflict from growing out of hand. The German mark continues to push up in value. German forces begin extensive training programs for their aircraft, tanks and infantry emphasizing a high speed style of warfare. The German navy also begins expansion and as the modernization of previous battleship designs comes into play along with destroyers and other naval craft. The German immigration to colonies continues with about 300,000 immigrants this year alone. The population of the German empire proper reaches about 77 million with more projected growth as the colonies begin to display their own independent growth. The German Kaiser Wilhelm IV officially marries Juiliana of the Netherlands creating the German-Dutch Union. German forces condemn the short gunboat battle near Australia and write an official apology to the British Empire.


  • Gabon: Gabon gets a small number of German immigrants - mostly people looking to take control of previously French areas and resource exploitation areas working to get them operational again. Oil is drilled majorly for the economy. Gabon reaches a population of about 150,000.
  • Cameroon: Following the conclusion of the war Cameroon's agricultural base is re-activated with the railways used to bring the agricultural products that are used all across the German Empire. The possibility of industrialization to a degree brings in immigrants. German population reaches about 260,000.
  • Equatorial Africa: Development by German corporations continues as companies begin exploitation of resources.  Equatorial Africa reaches a population of about 160,000 Germans.
  • New Frankfurt: The resources in Congo previously exploited by Belgium are taken over by the Germans with corporations beginning to expand on them forming industries around this area to form and refine specific materials to be shipped across the empire for development. Industrialization from the Krupp corporation and many other newer but smaller corporations continues along the Congo River begins. Congo reaches a population of about 300,000. The current governor of Congo part of the nobility of Germany petitions to work Congo as a Duchy of the German Empire, and also sends a request to change the name from Congo to New Frankfurt. The emperor denies the request to be a duchy but does allow for the name change attempting to bring a more Germanic culture type to Africa with the name change. The Kaiser officially names New Frankfurt a viceroyalty putting the new governor as the viceroy at the behest of the legislative branches of government. This is done after many people which have moved to the colonies begin demanding the equality of the colonies to Germany proper. This inability of the German economy to cope with this type of dissent has culminated in the colony being named a viceroyalty.
  • Togo: The infrastructure of Togo known as some of the most highly developed in Africa is kept afloat following the war with repairs made for the cash crops being used to for sale to develop the colony. The town and settlements begin to expand more thoroughly with imperial incentives bringing the population up to about 220,000 German settlers.
  • Tanzania: The German settlements continue to expand with the possibility of industrialization and further development of mineral resources bringing German settlers incentivized by the government. Cash crops such as rubber and coffee are developed continually as well with the economic development of the area taking precedence. Tanzania reaches a population of 240,000. The central railroad is expanded and funded by a railroad company in order to meet up and establish the trans-Africa railway through German Colonial Africa. The Tanzanian side will end in Dar es Salaam renamed to Wildhaus reflecting continuing Germanization of Africa.
  • Madagascar: Madagascar for the most part is left to its own devices as the first German settlements of just over a couple hundred a piece are established. German military forces begin to take control of the island with about 5000 troops being deployed to secure the empire's influence and transfer to Germany. Population grows to about 90,000. The massive influx of people is almost unknown to the colonial administration and can barely be handled.
  • New Prussia: Diamond and copper mining continue to attract the majority of German settlement thousands flocking to the colonies for these opportunities. The majority of German population in the colonies continues to be located here and this is the first real area in which German industry in the colonies is developed. This is done to take German South West Africa to new heights and bring the Crown colony special status in the Empire eventually. Population reaches 390,000 and the current governor begins pushing Germany for greater status within the empire for achieving the unprecendented growth which is concurrently leading to major growth in local infrastructure. The local population surging and taking advantage of the many readily available jobs has led to the governor to request that New Prussia be made into a Viceroyalty and lays out a step by step plan that every German colony may become a Viceroyalty under Germany with eventual centralization in effect as well. The kaiser and the government seeing many advantages of this as well as the successful Germanization programs looks into it seeing it as the culmination of creating a new Germany.
  • New Guinea: New Guinea remains as it is with limited settlement and some naval ships using this as a base and other cash crops being grown. Further colonists begin to arrive ranging to about 12,000 settlers. A small gunboat battle ensues between an Australian ship and a German ship that remains inconclusive.
  • Samoa: German Samoa continues to expand its production of cash crops. There are about 7000 settlers.


Austrian Empire: The subsidies to industries and farms continues. The Wage and Price Control Act remains in effect and allows for the fluid transition of wages and prices to new levels to keep up with a slowly rising Austrian Krone that is now fully backed by a vast amount of silver. The amount of silver in reserve grows, but there is very little gold. In order to increase the number of gold in the reserves, mining begins to be both privately, and mainly government funded in the territory of Austria, in the mountains, being the only real sources of gold deposits in the Empire. Savings and government bonds continue to be propagated as paying for the future of the children of the Empire. Factories and farms continue to reopen, at the same rate as the previosu year, increasing jobs and industrial and agricultural output. The wargames exercises go as planned in Croatia, and several points of improvement are made. The largest points noticed is a lack of effective weapons to take on newer tanks, and the increasing lack of a modern machine gun. Both of these are taken into thought and development of both a tank solely designed to fight tanks, and the development of a modern machine gun begins. The public works projects continue, developing the industry of Austria, as well as providing numerous jobs.

  • Duchy of Serbia: The processes and economic laws established by the Austrian Empire are continually followed. Plans to adopt the Austrian plan for establishment of a silver standard, and the slow end, and the Duchy of Serbia finally adopts the same public works policies of Austria, beginning to hire people to build roads, bridges, airfields, dams, and electrical lines. The Serbian military forces begin to be positioned at the Serbian-Montenegro border due to the response of the King of Montenegro.

Colombia: the conservatives are finally defeated in an election by the Liberals who win by a small margin with 45% while the conservatives earn 43% and the other 12% go to independents. The government, however, continues many of the old conservatives policies seeing their merits, and push forward their own policies aimed at breaking the monopolies of the old guard and aristocratic Creoles who back the conservatives. The military build up continues, and the Liberals take the common market policy further by attempting to influence the governments of Venezuela and Ecuador to begin a process of economic integration. North East Colombia continues to grow into a major industrial centre not only in Colombia but in Central America (can someone please update the industry map I've been industrializing since 1916?). Meanwhile, infrastructure continues to grow. Research into improved airplanes begins as the Colombian government begins putting efforts into building an air force. Researching into tanks begins, to begin building an armored division. Naval expansion and modernization continues as the country's first modern battle begins to be constructed, and construction of dry docks in the pacific and atlantic coasts begins to support a modern naval power.

Spain: Francisco Franco and his men separate from the army forming a nationist rebellion against the king. The king asks for aid from the UK

Netherlands: Citizens continue to be able to find employment - with the biggest employer becoming the army due to its need for soldiers in the huge unrest in its major colony. Most companies experience normal growth and the nation's businesses are once more stable. The navy continues to receive funding to create a better and more powerful navy which maybe could challenge its ally Germany. A significant amount of money continues to flow into the construction and researching of the Imperial Battlecrusiers and helps provide jobs to thousands in dire need of them. The first Dutch aircraft carriers continue to be constructed at a good pace and much of the first 3 aircraft carriers are done. Fokker begins construction of its attack aircraft (OTL Spitfire). However, much of the funding continues to be derived indirectly through the crops and spices sold from the East Indies, but the funding begins to dry up due to the fact of the ongoing civil war. The plans to transform the East Indies into an industrial and agricultural heartland for the Dutch nation are put on hold in most of the nation, but in the strongholds of Batavia - this plan continues. Large numbers of oil companies continue to receive grants but most are bought over by Shell, which continues to become a bigger oil company. The rubber continues to be extracted and much of it is stored up for future use as well as to build a demand for the substance. The production of the Panzer I and II continue to increase and the Dutch begin to look into developing successor models for better use. A few moterised divisions have been made using the tanks and this proves to be handy for the Dutch. Flanders and its capital Antwerpen continue to be integrated into the Netherlands and the schools have their cirriculum matched up with the rest of the nation. Many Wallonians feel they are not being treated as equals and to prove a point thousands join up to the army. The army becomes the greatest employer of Wallonia. Most of the others begin to head out to the East Indies even though there is a civil war going on. The Union of the Netherlands and Germany continues smoothly. Large numbers of Wallonian citizens head out to the East Indies. In the East Indian civil war, things begin to slightly calm down. Both sides have fought each other to exhaustion but neither side will back down. They have ended up killing millions because of their actions and famine continues. Diseases continue to spread in many towns and villages and affect population numbers. It is presumed that already some 15 million are dead. The Dutch colonial troops and their allies the federationists begin to openly attack both of the other sides in the civil war. They begin to recapture many areas which have been abandoned and establish proper control, giving the people whatever food they can spare. This makes them immensely popular at the time of the liberation of the lands. They begin to deploy the armoured divisions against the other factions.
