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. This led the Battle of Marne in which the Germans following a revision of tactics won the battle and went on to win the war for the most part gaining large amounts of new territory from the war and managed to capitalize on the breakup of her allies for her own personal gain.

1923

All major British railway companies are grouped into four larger companies, under terms of the Railways Act 1921.

A violent racially-motivated massacre takes place in Florida leaving eight dead and the town of Rosewood abandoned.

Vladimir Lenin has another stroke which leaves him unable to lead the underground Communist Party of Russia. Stalin and Trotsky take over and continue to plan taking control of the country.

Adolf Hitler leads a small and unsuccessful coup to try to take parliament. He is sentenced to five years of prison for high treason. 

Following the influenza and the large depopulation of Africa, more white settlers have taken up residence in the European colonies with Germany and Britain leading.

  • Japan: Japan begins to build up its military and improves infrastructure. Meanwhile, Japan asks Britain and France for an alliance and trade agreement.
  • Switzerland: Switzerland finalizes the custom's union and an open border policy with Liechtenstein, (we already share the Swiss Frank with Liechtenstein). Social tensions continue to be calmed as the workers benefits continue to be improved. Farming improves as worker benefits begin to take affect.
    • Switzerland Diplomacy: We propose the Zurich Agreement, a proposal to the European nations of Liechtenstein, Germany, Luxembourg, Italy, France, Belgium, and Netherlands to create an open market of steel, iron and coal markets. This region will be known as the Zurich Zone.
    • German Dip: We agree wholeheartedly.
    • France: although reluctant due to the entrance of Germany, it decides that it is better to do this rather than perhaps avoid a successful agreement that may turn out good for France.
  • Australia: Stanley Bruce becomes Prime Minister of Australia and begins agricultural and industrial improvements. In order to improve the economy, the PM implements  the policy of "Men, Money and Markets." In this policy Bruce encourages immigration from the British for new opportunities and for markets. Australia proposes to lead an Asian Super Dominion. Since Great Britain is on the other side of the world from colonies such as Malaya, Singapore, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, and others, we believe we can more effectively administer these colonies and ensure British influence in Asia and Oceania.
  • Britain: Agrees to all of the above with two exceptions: Singapore and Hong Kong.
  • Australian Diplomacy: We thank Britain for the agreement and we reorganize ourselves as the Oceanic Commonwealth, with Australia being the head and we also try to clarify if New Zealand is part of the new Commonwealth. 
  • Sweden: The King of Sweden, seeing the industrial progress in the countries of Germany and Great Britain, begins to use them as a model to use the mass amounts of resources and prepare for increased industrialization. With the other nations of Scandinavia surrounding us we begin to influence them and lean their allegiance to Sweden. We also put forward a trade proposition and alliance to Germany.
  • Netherlands: The nation of the Netherlands begins increasing agricultural and industrial yields through modernization of respective equipment. Production of vegetables and other agricultural products increases as traditional fields begin to be replaced with modern farms, equipped with mechanized tractors and other modern technological innovations. With industrial sectors growing, many begin to realize the ineffectiveness of older roads, and many begin considering the creation of a paved national highway system, that would connect major metropolitan areas with other important areas across our nation, including ports, shipyards and factories. Railroad networks also slightly grow, although at a small pace, fueled almost exclusively by private investments from large corporations. Industrial efforts also trickle down into the colonies. In the Dutch East Indies the Grote Postweg (Great Post Road) goes under light maintenance to increase its transport and shipping capabilities. We ask to join the Zurich Zone, and its European nations of Liechtenstein, Germany, Luxembourg, Italy, France, and Belgium, to create an open market of steel, iron and coal. We also ask for an alliance with Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.
  • German Empire: The German Empire now recovering from the moderate effects of its influenza seeing an opportunity to help expand its colonial possessions more heavily begins to offer a more industrialized approach to the colonies as well as a strict segregation of blacks and whites. With a population of nearly 250,000 throughout its various colonies, the German colonial empire previously insubstantial and unpopulated has reached new heights. Research into new tank designs begins with the main one taking precedence as a medium tank 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. The Military as well is improved to a degree with more professional troops being trained to replace draftees still in service. The Infrastructure is also improved. German economic influence over Belarus, and Ukraine remains nearly absolute pushing the governments to be increasingly reliant on Germany for economic development.
    • 'German Colonial Africa  'The African colonies continue to expand their populations and resource extraction capabilities with South West Africa, Gabon and Congo taking precedence. The colonization of these areas continues with fortified German settlements, nearly 80,000 Germans have migrated to German colonies with the first large scale German city being built up in the Congo. The resource exploitation particularly for gold in Namibia expands as well.
    • German Colonial Asia: While being less profitable than going to German Africa, the German colonies in Asia, seeing the problems stemming from the previous war, turn toward fortification and the conversion from light points to rubber, and naval powerhouses. Light immigration takes place here as well.
    • Duchy of Finland: Now free of Russian influence Finland immediately buys equipment from Germany and builds up its armed forces to maintain its independence. Along with this, the Finnish armed forces help with rebuilding infrastructure and upgrading existing undamaged infra. The economy is also expanded slightly.
    • Congress of Poland: Poland now at least semi free begins setting up its economy, and military to German standards. However, infrastructure is still handled by a largely German-led business coalition. The Congress itself, however, does recognize it owes Germany for its independence and regardless of previous outlooks a more respect is established toward the Germans rather than friendliness. With a population of about 3.7 million the Congress remains one of the smallest states in Europe.
    • Estonia: Regardless of the large amount of Estonian nationalism the people of the country put faith in the Germans as well as their respect for not absorbing them into their nation. Estonia seeing the economic success of Germany begins to model itself more heavily on the German economy and military spreading its political influence into Latvia, and Lithuania.
    • Latvia: With the Latvian military forces previously defeated attempting to fully gain their own self determination begin to align themselves toward the Estonians and model themselves after the German economy but are forced to rely almost entirely on the German economy. The weakness of the government leaves German officials majority in charge.
    • Lithuania: With independence achieved Lithuania attempts to settle internal issues and work on its economy but remains forced to rely on Germany for economic development. Estonian influence, however, remains largely prevalent which does, however, remain strangely Pro-German.
  • Russia: begins to lose authority over the people; the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party's underground gazette, Pravda, begins to call for revolution, as Trotsky and Stalin have yet another falling-out, and Trotsky rejoins the Menshevik underground. A Communist-led riot occurs in Archangelsk, where it is brutally crushed by Cossacks; in protest, the Socialist-Revolutionaries and the Constitutional Democrats walk out in protest, as do the Labour group and the Octobrists. This leaves the Duma short of its quorum, and it disbands, leaving Tsar Nicholas in de jure, as well as de facto, control. When he calls no new elections, protests against the government become more open.
  • France: The military and navy are built up. Guiana is allowed more freedom and promised to eventually become a commonwealth of France. While this, due to the recent defeat in the war, many French from the border with Germany and Belgium flee to the south and some cross the Mediterranean settling in North Africa - mostly around Tunis and Algeria's northeastern coast. While this, economy begins to progress as a few companies begin making weaponry to protect the French nation. While this, it joins the Zurich agreement and asks Spain for a military alliance as well as Britain and the United states.
  • Belgium: King Albert I issues the Neutrality Decree of 1923, stating that it will not accept alliance offers from ANY nation. The Belgian government begins to improve the infrastructure of the country by beginning the process of repaving the roads of the country and improving or expanding the rail lines to allow greater trade and travel between Europe, particularly the border states of the Netherlands, Germany, Luxembourg and France. The Belgian army begins the process of re-organization and reformation to keep up with the modern times. While this, the Belgian navy begins to develop a new class of warships that allow for a swift raid on an enemy convoy or blockade before returning to the port city. The Belgian Air Force begins to develop a new type of aircraft (cross out if implausible). While this, the Belgian government reluctantly agrees to join the Zurich Zone.
  • Portugal: We begin to update our navy, constructing four destroyers and two torpedo boats. We buy 200 armored cars that were built during World War I. The government begins to set up a defensive perimeter with Spain, stringing barbwire and setting up pillboxes. We buy 200 Vickers machine guns. We begin to expand our economy by constructing equipment to process raw materials from our colonial empire.
    • Portuguese Colonial Africa: We ship a cache, cotton, tea, diamonds, iron, and peanuts.
    • Goa: We expand the port in the colony and build a torpedo boat.
    • Macau: The governor of Macau begins constructing defensive walls around the city and constructs a patrol boat.
    • East Timor: We build a patrol boat. We export sandalwood to Portugal.
  • Mexico: A Mexican presidential candidate, Plutarco Elias Calles, is supported by the previous president, Alvaro Obregon. Due to this support, and Obregon's popularity of the time with the labor and peasants unions, Plutarco Calles is elected with a 62% majority. He is of the National Revolutionary Party (PNR), the dominant party of Mexico since the Mexican Revolution. Being an extreme nationalist, he quickly rejects the Bucareli Agreements made earlier in the year by the previous president. By rejecting these, he has placed all European and American oil industries under Mexican authority. However, this is a controversial decision and subsequently goes through the Mexican Supreme Court. It is decided that only companies with pumps active after the new Mexican constitution of 1917 can be acquired by the Mexican government under the re-stated law of Spanish origin which makes everything under the soil property of the state. This results in seizure of less oil company properties than expected, but nonetheless, helps in gaining Mexico its own oil rights and a place in the international oil industry. Several silver mines also begin to open.
    • Mexican Diplomacy (needs mod response): The Mexican President, Plutarco Elias Calles, requests to open a Mexican embassy in Guatemala and begin more formal relations with Guatemalan president Jose Maria Orellana.
    • Guatemalan Dip: We will accept this (MOD).
  • America: Business as usual continues in America. Movements like isolation and prohibition continue to rise in popularity. President Warren G. Harding makes plans to visit the territories of Alaska and Hawaii to see how the people are doing there. Diplomatic and economic overtures and investments are made to several nations in the Caribbean. The garrison at Panama is increased. More tanks are produced as well as machine guns and aircraft. Economic investment also continues in the Philippines, Hawaii and Alaska. America demands that Mexico respect the property rights of foreign oil companies or face harsh punishment. Police restore order in the area around Rosewood, and state that they plan to repopulate the area once tensions have been reduced.
    • Mexican Diplomacy: President Calles offers to suspend the re-instatement of Article 27 of the Mexican Constitution in order to negotiate with the United States, to avoid any rash or disastrous actions for both nations.
  • Spain: We send troops to the border of Portugal to keep a close eye on them. We begin to upgrade our navy by constructing ten battleships, ten aircraft carriers, and 30 u-boats. Tanks are being made in factories. The king of Spain makes new jobs by sending people to its colonies to modernize them and build them up.
    • Spanish Morocco: We send troops to the border for protection.
    • Equatorial Guinea: With the help from the people of Africa, trading goes well with them.
    • Spanish West Sahara: We are building up the ports to increase exports and imports.

1924

The leader of Communism, Vladimir Lenin, dies with the Communist Party still being more splintered due to Trotsky and Stalin's differing views on Communism.

Large Dock strikes break out in multiple US harbors over wages and working conditions.

The British area of South Africa has become much more stable but largely depopulated of blacks with the populations closer in relation to whites than ever though possible.

Some US banks begin calling in the debts of countries like the Ottoman empire, France, Britain, and Germany on their war bonds.

The Republic of China suffers from various regional warlord issues. However, the central government does begin a larger effort to quell these warlords.

Luxembourg agrees to join the Zurich zone.

  • Japan: Japan continues to build up its military and improves infrastructure. Japan again asks the UK and France for a trade agreement. Meanwhile, some ships are built.
  • Spain: More troops are being sent to the border between Portugal. We are upgrading our navy. Our factories are producing more military vehicles and weapons.
    • Spanish Morocco: More troops are being sent to the border.
    • Equatorial Guinea: We become friendlier with the natives and improve our relationships with them.
    • Spanish West Sahara: We build up our cities to become more modern.
    • Spanish D: We ask the Ottomans if we can sent up oil fields for our military.
    • Spanish D: We ask the Germans if we can be allies.
    • German Dip: We accept.
    • Most of the Ottoman oil is already owned by people particularly Germany.
    • Portuguese Diplomacy: Seeing the potential for a vicious war on the peninsula that may lead other nations to attempt to take control of our colonies and our homelands by our blind actions, we propose forming the Iberian Confederation, a council group with five members from each of our sides, and an observer from Germany, Britain, France, and the USSR. We propose to form a defense pact to strengthen our colonies and our status in the world and prevent a costly war that nobody wants right now.
  • Portugal: Seeing the troop buildup on the border by Spain, we send 10,000 troops to guard our borders. We purchase 30 PT-1 medium tanks. They are a tank the same shape as the Renault FT, but are larger with a four man crew and have a 75mm gun, and a Vickers machine gun. We build another two destroyers, buy three submarines, lay down two cruisers and a light aircraft carrier. We continue to strengthen our economy by building banks and importing raw materials from our colonies.
    • Portuguese Dip: We ask for an alliance with France, the British, the US, and the Soviet Union.
    • US is isolationist, and the Soviet Union doesn't exist.
  • Persia: As Reza Shah is proclaimed Shah of Iran, we begin a period of modernization. The Shah began by sending many elite students in major institutes in Iran to European nations. They were ordered to learn more about the industry and political structure of European nations. The Shah began proclaiming all ethnicities in Iran as Iranians, no matter their race as Kurds, Iranians or nomads. Pan-Iranian nationalism occurs, which lessens ethnicity violence. Immediately, the Shah began to plan the construction of a Trans-Iranian Railway and the reconstruction of Qanat to allow nomads to begin working on farms, which may stop nomadic uprising.
    • Persian D: We ask Germany for an alliance.
  • German Empire: The German Empire now recovering from the moderate effects of its influenza seeing an opportunity to help expand its colonial possessions more heavily begins to offer a more industrialized approach to the colonies as well as a strict segregation of blacks and whites. With a population of nearly 250,000 throughout its various colonies, the German colonial empire previously insubstantial and unpopulated has reached new heights. Research into new tank designs begins with the main one taking precedence as a medium tank made for maximum efficiency.

The Military as well is improved to a degree with more professional troops being trained to replace draftees still in service. The Infrastructure is also improved. German economic influence over Belarus and Ukraine remains nearly absolute pushing the governments to be increasingly reliant on Germany for economic development.
    • German Colonial Africa: The African colonies continue to expand their populations and resource extraction capabilities with South West Africa, Gabon and Congo taking precedence. The colonization of these areas continues with fortified German settlements, nearly 80,000 Germans have migrated to German colonies with the first large scale German city being built up in the Congo.

    • German Colonial Asia: While being less profitable than going to German Africa, the German colonies in Asia, seeing the problems stemming from the previous war, turn toward fortification and the conversion from light points to rubber, and naval powerhouses.

  • Switzerland: Continues to develop social, labor and banking reforms. Increased trade through Zurich Zone gives Switzerland, Liechtenstein and other smaller nations a quick economic boost. Switzerland's troops participate in war games. Neutrality is the continued mindset of the federal council. Begins to boost relations with the regions of Italy including Milan, Turin and Liguria. 
  • *Oceanic Commonwealth/Australia: Industrial build up and British immigration continue. Mining operations in inland Australia begin. Centralisation of the Oceanic Commonwealth begins.
  • **New Zealand: Ports are built along the coast to ensure trade of mined resources and agriculture from other members of the Oceanic Commonwealth.
  • '**'Malaysia: Farms and plantations are set up across the country which causes palm and rubber trees to be cut down. Kuala Lumpur then connects the agriculture, rubber and palm to the city-state of Singapore increasing the economy. Conservation efforts are put into place in order to increase tourism and establish scientific bases to study the biodiversity. Trading ports are also set up between North Borneo and Brunei.
    • Brunei: Benefits from the trade with Malaysia and sets up farms.
  • **North Borneo: Same as Brunei.
    • Papua New Guinea: Small farming operations are set up and explorers are sent there to see if there is any economic or scientific potential.
  • Fiji: Same as Papua New Guinea.
  • Mexico: The suspension of the enforcement of Article 27 of the Mexican constitution continues for American businesses as Presidents of both countries attempt to work out a deal. However, the European companies property established after 1917 is still seized for Mexico, and are now nationalized under the nation of Mexico. The company property is mainly of British and French origin. As the land is not formed into any corporation due to the differences of Mexico's, and other international labor laws, it instead will operate solely on exportation, rather than developing property in other nations. In order to begin a reform of land and education, President Calles installs Moises Saenz as Secretary for Department of Public Education. From this position, Saenz begins to be a driving force for the creation of a network of schools known as secundarias, or secondary schools. The plan is to vastly expand the basic education in Mexico, and allow more Mexicans to have the ability to attend school past the fourth grade than ever before. In a personal note for the president, he changes Mexico's civil code to give illegitimate children the same rights as legitimate, due to the problems he faced as being a child of unmarried parents. 
  • America: Continues what it is doing. Prohibition and isolation movements continue to rise in popularity. A tragedy strikes the nation, as current President Harding dies from a heart attack while he visits Alaska. Vice-president Coolidge is sworn in. His term starts off with the police cracking down on the strikes to ensure that shipyards remain functioning. More may follow tomorrow ...
  • Brazil: The economy is worked on, and logging in the Amazon Rain forest begins as well, providing for some funds to begin flowing in from that while construction of industrial centers begins in large areas of the interior where forest has been cleared. This will help should Brazil go to war just by their location away from the border. Railways begin construction to connect the country, and we begin talks with Portugal in order to strengthen ties. We begin to influence Paraguay, Bolivia and Uruguay. A new party is formed called the Workers Front, standing for what would be viewed in OTL as Socialist. This party gains some support in the small industrial areas as well as large farms across the country, as it is not too radical, but enough to supply the want for better worker conditions.

1925

The Communist part of China is founded but in a much lesser form.

The Communist groups throughout Russia begin to be much more antsy and anticipatory of a potential rise up that some small cells are discovered.

A Series of radio broadcasts begin to popularize the full broadcast potential of radio dramas.

The German economy begins to overtake the British economy.

Japan's potential to be a candidate host for the Olympics is considered.

  • Japan: Japan continues to build up its military and improves infrastructure. Japan again asks the UK and France for a trade agreement. Meanwhile, some more ships are built. A non-aggression pact is offered to Germany and Russia.
  • Spain: Our factories are producing Panzer VI in mass production. We are upgrading our navy by making more battleships, aircraft carriers, and U-boats. Our air force is making more planes for more paratroopers to fit in. Bombers are being made. We are importing a lot of raw material from our colonies. We send 30,000 troops to the border with Portugal. We are now allies with the Germans.
    • Spanish Morocco: More troops are being sent to the border.
    • Equatorial Guinea: We give the natives guns to arm themselves from other tribes and European troops in Africa.
    • Spanish West Sahara: We build a railroad that goes throughout the whole country. 
    • Spanish D: We ask the Italians, Ottomans, Russians, and French if we can be allies.
  • Oceanic Commonwealth: The news of Papua New Guinea has come to PM Bruce and it has both economic and scientific potential. After much debate, he decides to establish scientific bases and schools in the major cities of Papua New Guinea while farming continues.. This major shift of education in Papua New Guinea encourages missionaries to head to Papua New Guinea to establish missions and educate the natives. This upsets industrial people but Bruce states that there is plenty of industrial opportunities in inland Australia, which encourages more mining operations inland. The mined resources then go to Sydney and are shipped to Auckland and Wellington to produce ships and other finished goods which are transported to Malaysia. Here farming, research, and tourism, and trading with Brunei and North Borneo continue who both use the money for agriculture which are shipped to the rest of the commonwealth. It is also decided in Fiji to do the same as in Papua New Guinea. With all the science in the Oceanic Commonwealth, Bruce decides to set up a unifying scientific institution. 
  • Portugal: We finish constructing our cruisers, and our navy buys two more submarines and five torpedo boats, and the light carrier is 54% complete. We buy 24 Vickers Valsparos. Our army forms the National Border Guard, forming it as a paramilitary unit with 25,000 troops. We buy another 40 PT-1 tanks. We continue to work on developing infrastructure.
  • Brazil: The Workers Front continues to gain power due to the rise in industrial workers and the growth of farms needed to feed the workers with roughly 22% of the populace supporting the party, with supporters coming from various backgrounds, allowing it to truly be called a party of Brazil. Industry continues to grow with three industrial regions in Brazil all providing rifles, pistols, artillery, and early versions of Brazilian fighter planes and tanks. Each industrial center is large enough to hold eight separate and independent factories, and there are eight individual factories per industrial section. Railways are now connecting the three areas. Construction of new naval facilities begins as well, and several more industrial sectors are set to be established next year. We continue to influence Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia. We offer the Mexicans an alliance.
  • Bolivia and Paraguay both have relatively recent issues with Brazil less than 60 years old ... no way. In fact only time in which it started to be possible was when Getulio Vargas took over with Fascism. and the rest of the continent swung about the same way.
  • German Empire: The German Empire now recovering from the moderate effects of its influenza seeing an opportunity to help expand its colonial possessions more heavily begins to offer a more industrialized approach to the colonies as well as a strict segregation of blacks and whites. With a population of nearly 250,000 throughout its various colonies, the German colonial empire previously insubstantial and unpopulated has reached new heights. Research into new tank designs begins with the main one taking precedence as a medium tank made for maximum efficiency.

    • Congress of Poland: Poland now at least semi-free begins setting up its economy, and military to German standards. However, infrastructure is still handled by a largely German-led business coalition. The Congress itself, however, does recognize it owes Germany for its independence and regardless of previous outlooks a more respect is established toward the Germans rather than friendliness. With a population of about 3.7 million the Congress remains one of the smallest states in Europe.
    • Estonia: Regardless of the large amount of Estonian nationalism the people of the country put faith in the Germans as well as their respect for not absorbing them into their nation. Estonia seeing the economic success of Germany begins to model itself more heavily on the German economy and military spreading its political influence into Latvia and Lithuania.
    • Latvia: With the Latvian military forces previously defeated attempting to fully gain their own self determination begin to align themselves toward the Estonians and model themselves after the German economy but are forced to rely almost entirely on the German economy. The weakness of the government leaves German officials majority in charge.
    • Lithuania: With independence achieved, Lithuania attempts to settle internal issues and work on its economy but remains forced to rely on Germany for economic development. Estonian influence, however, remains largely prevalent which does, however, remain strangely pro-German.

While this, the industrialization of Provence and Corsica begin in order to establish much bigger amount of industrialization in France, and the settling of Christian French in Tunisia continues as the people of Northern France feel that the Germans still pose a threat and that the nation is unable to offer them the needed protection. While this, the army is increased as military is upgraded, and  navy expands widely - as well as the population of Guinea.
  • Persia: As Reza Shah is proclaimed Shah of Iran, we begin a period of modernization. The Shah began by sending many elite students in major institutes in Iran to European nations. They were ordered to learn more about the industry and political structure of European nations. The Shah began proclaiming all ethnicities in Iran as Iranians, no matter their race as Kurds, Iranians or nomads. Pan-Iranian nationalism occurs, which lessens ethnicity violence. We begin the construction of the railroad and we begin to employ nomads to rebuild the qanat system.
    • Persian D: We ask Germany for an alliance.
