Principia Moderni, or "The Beginning of the Modern" in Late Latin, is a map game beginning in the final days of the Middle Ages in Europe, and the early days of the Ming Dynasty in China -1420 C. E. The House of Hohenzollern has become the Electorates of Brandenburg - though most of the power in the Holy Roman Empire still lies with the Habsburgs. Joan of Arc has defeated the English at Orleans. The city of Tenochtitlan is founded by the Aztecs. The Timurid Empire has united Central and West Asia, and the Yongle Emperor sends out Zheng He to voyage westward. It is a turbulent era; in other words, an era of change; an era in which power is cemented.

Principia Moderni Map 1995 Key
The Greater German Federation officially collapses. The three German states of Hanover, Saxony and Bavaria unite to found the German Empire, and crown Hanover's King William I as the first German Kaiser. Austria approaches Hungary on the annexation of their country.

A: Why would it breakup? And B: Why would it want to join Hungary? It's not German or anything.

A: Because he's gone over the 5-day limit. B: It's supposed to be an ironic reversal of the Austria-Hungary situation.

That's something I never understood. A nation goes inactive suddenly and it has to breakup? Whatever happened to isolationism?

The Spanish Collectivist nations unite to found the People's Republic of Spain. The capital of Aragon, Zaragoza, is chosen as the capital of Spain. This is because the Aragonese have overtaken Castille as the most powerful Spanish collectivist country.

  • The Vietnamese continue expanding industry throughout their country. Kenians expand industry throughout their country. Zanzibar expands industry throughout their country.
  • The Neolithuanians continue expanding industry throughout their country.
  • Taiwanese continue to expand industry throughout their country. They expand the New Taihoku colony by 238*50 sq km.
  • The Myanma continue to expand industry throughout their country.
  • The British continue expanding industry throughout their country.
  • The Tangierans continue expanding industry throughout their country.
  • Scandinavia builds up industry and economy. It refuses to accept the dissolution of the GGF and does not acknowledge the German Empire. Meanwhile, it urges Austria not to join Hungary and instead, proposes that it becomes a member of the European Federation (Wales, Scandinavia, Russia).

New trade avenues are opened to the Kingdom of France. The Brythonic Commonwealth levys sanctions against Collectivist Spain and declares Spain a nation enemy and an enemy of the Free World.
    • A: Try to keep to one post. B: Why is Spain so evil? They haven't done anything to earn that treatment. No Collectivist nation has done the aggressive meddling that OTL Communists did. The overreactions of you and Von would likely make Collectivism look better.
    • It's personal, many people in our nation blame Collectivism for our loss of Ireland. I am not trying to turn them into belligerents, but they are seen as bad because of the failure of the Collectivist Led Pan Celtic Union
    • You're forgetting the collectivist terrorist attacks too, e.g., the attempted assassination of the Nipponese Emperor in 1976. Collectivism is seen as evil because nations like Nippon use things like the assassination attempt to make them seem evil and to protect the monarchy and their way of life. Their ideology doesn't go well with our nations and we are scared of losing power to them. It's just a good old bit of "Red terror", there are a few sympathizers but most of Nippon is against them thanks to the bad picture painted of them by the media; and I assume similar situations in other anti-collectivist nations ~Von.

The Soljuyev (not having a head, whose members are Collectivist and have been deemed eligible by the Xalif) is in charge of minor affairs i.e. Transportation and Budget within the School System. The Xalifev has asked permission of the Xalifet to infiltrate Cyprus, to which he has responded "Insha'allah" ((if it is the will of god (yes)). However, one of the 7 infiltrators of Cyprus' senate was executed December 25, a sign of strong disapproval of the Islamist Regime. This incident has caused tension between the two nations, and Turkey is upping its air force as a result.

The first highrise to surpass 20 stories starts construction in Prague, the 31-story skyscraper, the ČEZ Group Tower, to show the economic growth of the country, and the rapid digitalization, when computer sales are up to 250,000 by the beginning of the year, with at least 20,000 connected to internet services. Česká Televize plans on a new type of digital television standard, PAL-D, which will have higher quality of service than current analogue television. Czech representatives are sent to other fellow public broadcasters, including Finland's YLE, Austria's ORF, Saigyo's SHK (Saigyo Hoso Kyokai, correct me if I'm wrong) and Nippon's NHK, to form the new digital standard. Meanwhile, fears break out of Austria possibly collapsing into Hungary, which becomes a problem. However, a bigger problem is the fear that Turkey may invade Cyprus.
  • Italy warns the Turks that if they attempt to conquer Cyprus, the Sovereignty Defense League will defend Cyprus against the invasion. Italy expands its naval capabilities as a result, in case war breaks out. Meanwhile, investigation of the Stranierismo group continues.

  • The Xalifet has given a speech to the Xalifev about the necessity of purifying their language from the incoming stream of Greek words, and replace them with ones of Turkish origin, seeing that the Arabs had been a puppet of the French so long, they will not use words of Arabic origin. Large scale Turkish migration to Northern Cyprus causes more tension between Cyprus and Turkey, considering Cyprus, due to mass immigration, is closing its doors to more immigrants. 6% of the island seems to be Turkish, or at least understand the language. However, the population has drastically decreased at home, and the Xalifev is pushing locals to have at least four children each. No law has been made, though. The Cyprian Police force has been a major target for infiltration, and a large majority of its members are, in fact, Turkish. However, infiltration of the Senate has regressed. On November 12, the Xalifet announces: war with Cyprus means death, we shall not fight our brothers; ironically, the same day, a few Turkish Planes were shot down by Cyprian AA batteries, causing tensions to rise, and the Cyprian government giving Turkey money for repairing the planes. However, Turkey spends the money building better planes, as apart of its programme to have the largest air force in the world. Meanwhile, on a more peaceful front, Turkey is helping Turkestan out of its recession, a sign of pan Turkic unity.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces 32 more of the new Ennetsu V4 class nuclear bombs and the space programme's probe reaches Uranus and goes into orbit to observe Uranus for a year or so. Research into wave power continues and 2.6% of Nippon's power now comes from green energy sources. Web TV invented by Toshiba. The Soni group release the SS1 game system (Sentā o saisei/play centre) as a rival to the rest of the game consoles on the market (it's like OTL Playstation 1 but a bit better in terms of hardware). Toshiba using their advanced computer microchips, they release the Taha 1 (Tanoshī hako/fun box) as a rival to the other game consoles on the market and to tap into this growing market. The Taha 1 is the most powerful games console on the market thanks to using some of Toshiba's latest and most powerful microchips, it is a (6th generation console rather than a 5th generation console.. However, the Taha 1 is much more expensive than the other games consoles on the market as it has much more advanced hardware, and as a result doesn't sell as well as the rival SS1. Toshiba though do this not only to tap into this growing market but to try to stop people using computers, as the number of internet users has grown much faster than Toshiba expected and is struggling to keep up with demand; they begin planning a huge new upgrade project using fibre optic cables and trying to get governments to help finance this project too. The Toyota zaibatsu's computers department buys out a small game developers called Higenjitsutekina, who then go onto release the greatest video game made so far, Itami no kō (Duke of Pain, so OTL Duke Nukem 3D). The world's largest container vessel, the Kyodaina, is launched by the Yasuda zaibatsu to try to make their transporting costs cheaper.

It is primarily a search engine, but Shitsumon has some searches/questions bring up a predetermined answers researched and written by Norratsu's researchers in relation to the question asked. However, progress of trying to come up with an answer to every conceivable question is slow, and Shitsumon mainly still just directs users to other websites with some more popular questions generating responses from the website itself.

Utsuho Reiuji, Soilikki Mikkola, Sayuri Mikkola, Yuyuko Saigyouji and Youmu Konpaku continue being popular in Finland along with Anime Conventions and Kosupure. Music Artists UFO and Ylin, featuring Kaarina Hazuki (female) as the singer, create a song, called Paras Päivä (Best Days) (the song and such is like OTL UFO and Supreme feat. Shelly Clifford - Best Days, but the lyrics are in Finnish instead of English); the song becomes a hit. Hardcore Tekno, Tekno, Synthpop, Elektro, Trance continues to dominates the Finnish music scene. A company, called Rocktähti Asobi (OTL Rockstar Games), releases their first game for the Sentā o saisei 1, called Suuri Varkaus Auto (OTL Grand Theft Auto) and features three fictional cities, Beisaido (based on Kōchi, Japan), Björkborg (based on Oslo, Norway), and Satokyori (based on Tokyo, Japan).

  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military and improve infrastructure, and continues industrialisation. Supreme Leader Aatto Aaltonen continues to spread heavy pro-government propaganda in Mystiää. The borders continue to be heavily guarded, the security extremely high, and media heavily controlled.

  • Czechland continues digitalization of the nation, as electric charge-up stations are extended outside of Prague and Brno, as another test trial, with the goal of the vehicle being produced in Austria, and despite current troubled relations, Skoda hopes for the vehicle to be available in Hungary and disputed Slovak territories.
  • Turkestan's economy (according to the Turkish Bureau) is largely dependent on Turkey (20% of GDP), which economically, hurts Turkey. Turkey sneaks in many illegal immigrants into Cyprus, and 1/10 of the population in Cyprus is either Turkish or understands Turkish, 1/4 of them illegal (based on estimations). The Soljuyuv commissions 10 roads to be built into Nicaea, as a sign of peace. The Turkish air force is still upgrading its technology, along western lines. The Turkish gov't has given oustandingly large financial incentives to produce babies, in which the population has doubled. However, this puts Turkey's gov't near bankruptcy.
    • There is no possible way that the population of a country could double in two years just through the childbearing incentives. How are you supposed to add so many Turkish people to Cyprus? They had barely any Turkish people there to begin with, being as they have been independent from Turkish rule for more than 300 years. They would notice hundreds of thousands of Turks flooding into their nation. Also, they are an island, you can't just run across the border, you have to have all these boats landing. They would definitely notice. You aren't going to be able to plausible annex Cyprus by having illegal immigrants. I'm sorry you returned so late, but the age of conquest and imperialism is over forever.
    • I'm not saying they're not noticing. Most definitely people in Cyprus are noticing, I wrote a longer version before, but someone edited in the middle. And the population doubling isn't a matter of surprise, considering the country is horribly depopulated because of emigration. What they had to double from was less. And, I'm not trying to annex Cyprus. That's impossible, they'd have too much international support. Moreover, that would add a lot of Christians to the nation, which the Xalifet doesn't want.
  • In Scandinavia, the Crown Prince and Tsesarevich of Scandinavia and Russia seeks a wife, particularly one that is Italian, French or German. Meanwhile, the downgrade of the military stops and the military is put on reserve largely for defensive purposes. The ninth and final child of the Royal Family is born. Meanwhile, an alliance is offered to Atlantica.
    • How old? Queen Marie of France is yet to be married. I was planning for her to marry the king of Elsass/Alastia, but that player seems to have gone inactive. So perhaps she marries this guy instead ~Von
    • He's 30. How old is the Queen? I can always crank up the age a bit, largely because I forgot when the parents got married, lol.
    • Crap, I also realize I don't know how old Marie is. Lemme just go find out ...
    • Darn. She had to have been born from 1955 or before, but the Crown Prince was born 1972.
    • Yeah she became queen of Guinee in 1966 so she's over 18 there, (let's say she is 20 for simple numbers) then now she is around 50 years old. I think her marrying someone half her age probably isn't the best. Perhaps I'll just have her marry the current head of the Burgundy royal family. King Louis IV was crowned in 1962, so perhaps she now marries the new oldest head of the family, the son of Louis the IV, who could also be 50-ish. It'd give me a good reason for another war too, lol.
    • LOL OK. Also I have a new plan.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth cuts military spending. The space program continues with a new focus on returning to the moon. Orange Computers launches OS X Saturn.

Techsoft announces Doors 98 for the upcoming year, which will be its first true full feature OS to be used with any non-Orange hardware. The OS sells for 199 and includes a list of games and Techsoft's Office Environment Pro 97.
  • Kompagent releases another game console, the Agent Blue (OTL playstation), with the game "Vaselissa: lulka of time (OTL zelda ocarina of time)". It becomes an instant hit, and many more games are released, and even with a 32 bit system. Many people buy this system for its exclusive games and third party candidacy. Meanwhile, The Burya and Buran Shuttles finish delayed construction. A plan to reach Mars is concluded, with the Burya shuttle being launched to lunar orbit, where an unmanned mission has sent an Energia rocket into orbit first. In orbit, the shuttle would dock with the booster, and use lunar gravity and the Burya's unique on-shuttle engines to slingshot itself into Martian trajectory, using the second Energia rocket to boost its speed even more in the vaccum of space. The Russian empire creates the EIRC (European internet registry center) and registers the .imp .rus .rugov and .rs (Russian Senate) and .ee(Eastern Europe) and .rc (russian commonwealth). The Senate passes legislature allowing scandinavia to join the Russian commonwealth. The Russian Senate gets its own site senate.rs (Duma being senate.rs/duma and the council being senate.rs/Imperskiy_Soviet) on the internet following the clairity act, making it mandatory that each referendum pass a clear question with a clear majority, and that governement must put all legislature visible to all citizens, namely on the internet. The Buran shuttle docked successfully with the ESS. Meanwhile, plans are made for a new space station, to replace the aging ESS. The "Atlantic arm" is invented in New Vladimir (City in Novorossiya-OTL Canada arm) to help with building space stations and the like. A new shuttle is ordered for construction: the Destiny. The Excalibur orbital defence network is officially set up above Europe. This information is top secret. Getting back to the moon becomes a priority, using the Burya shuttle is becoming preferable as it can take 10 people with adequate supplies to lunar orbit, and 6 people with supplies and a lander. Work on the The Uragan or Energia-2 rocket is finished (fully-reusable version of Energia). Work begins on a 2-part variation of the Energia rocket that will be deployed to theoretically take men to Mars. One half will be deployed after lunar slingshot to boost the Burya's speed and the other will stay to boost the shuttle's speed during the return trip. Technology will be similar to the multistage rockets.
  • Erm ... we've only gone as far as dynastic and political union. I doubt I could or would join the Commonwealth. That basically establishes me as lesser than Russia when we are supposed to be equals.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces 32 more of the new Ennetsu V4 class nuclear bombs and the space programme's probe in orbit of Uranus goes off to go orbit Neptune. The comet Hale-Bopp has its closest approach to earth and this is monitored a lot by the Asian Space station telescope, a probe is even sent to take a sample from the comet but the probe is destroyed. However, it does chip off a bit of the comet so a clean-up team is sent to get the samples and the broken probe. Research into wave power continues and 2.7% of Nippon's power now comes from green energy sources. Video games continue to gain popularity as more manga and anime begin releasing tie-in games of their story. Toshiba with the support of the Nipponese government continue to upgrade the Nipponese Internet infrastructure to make it cope with the growing number of users. The gas-powered fuel cell invented by the Toyota zaibatsu too. The Mitsui Keiretsu becomes the world's most valuable business conglomerate, thanks a lot to Toshiba's work with the Internet and computers; they are valued around ¥ 33 trillion, which is quite a lot compared to Nippon's next biggest company the Yasuda zaibatsu which is only worth ¥ 19 trillion.

And i don't see where you see corter, but I've been infiltrating the police force since 1995, I'm sure Turkey would have made SOME progress.

  • Iran offers Italy an economic and military alliance.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces 44 more of the new Ennetsu V4 class nuclear bombs and the space program's probe continues to travel toward Neptune. Research into wave power continues and 4.1% of Nippon's power now comes from green energy sources. Toshiba with the support of the Nipponese government finish upgrading the Nipponese Internet infrastructure and it is now capable of hosting a billion users. E-commerce continues to fuel a period of rapid economic expansion focusing mostly on the Internet and e-commerce, but market analysts predict this is just a bubble and a lot of the investments in e-businesses are near worthless and will the market will soon crash. Nipponese botanists open the Garden of Eden project in Satotochi, and build a huge greenhouse (the worlds largest in fact) to try help save the worlds largest collection of plants, as they attempt to protect endangered species of plants. Nippon also opens the cybercrime prevention Bureau (CPB) to try to reduce the dangerously high amounts of cybercrime, which leads to the CPB and a group of large Nipponese music companies entering a lawsuit against the website Napzata and its founder Lucio Kagawa. Toshiba also release their first digital music player, the K-owon (OTL iPod), which is completely supported by Toshiba's new TX-01 operating system (OTL Windows XP), which is also received with great praise.

  • The Federation of the America's federal government continue to fund several hydro and wind power projects to try create clean, non-polluting sources of electricity in the federation, as 14.9% of the federation's power now comes from green sources of power, as work continues to lower pollution. The federal military amps up in all of the member states. The drug cartels are now all but destroyed, but small scale drug trade remains. The federation also expands their presence in western Antarctica. The federation is also rocked by a huge 8.2 magnitude earthquake in Peru, and a large scale clean-up operation throughout the affected regions in the federation.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth expands its banking industry and re-opens ports of travel. The repairs begin on all the places targeted in the past year. Emergency Elections are held and the General Assembly and the PM are elected. The new Prime Minister is now Robert Irwen. Irwen is politically attacked by James Riddick of the Independence Party. He is clamouring that the Kingdom be abolished and a Republic be established, and says that Irwen is nothing but a Russian puppet. Most people ignore Riddick, who is a world class drunk and a breaker of the peace. Orange Launches OS X Saturn SE and it is sold as an upgrade offer for only 30 Euro Marks. Techsoft continues to gain marginal profit margins. A new cooperation aggreement is proposed to Nippon by the new General Assembly to "reboot" relations with the far eastern power. PM Irwen states "This is a new century, let the Welsh and the Nipponese embrace this new era together." The military is put on stand down. The internet becomes a huge market as more nation begin to use the quick and reliable service to transfer goods.

One of them also creates the "Wikia," a Wikipedia-esque website devoted to a single topic.
    • Hey Wikipedia was already established this year by a Shuubudanese computer scientist called Nagi Rankan. He led a global project to establish a Wiki free content encyclopaedia called Wikipedia, in an attempt to spread the global availability of free and unbiased information. Scandinavia is of course welcome to join the project but it has already been started by Nagi Rankan. Do try to read all new posts since your last visit to avoid this sort of stuff in future please? ~Von
  • Czechland keeps the Czech Air Force on high alert, based on what's going on in Turkey (only rumours, since the mods may cancel that event out). The military is still ready to be deployed, in case something like Triple 9 occurs in Czechland. Internet usage is now for the first time, used by over half the population, where many of people use it for economical reasons, economists suggest they should listen to the Welsh advice of potential collapse, but there's no stopping Czechland's technological economic boom. Shortly after Wikipedia is created by famed Scandinavians, the first Czech pages are typed, with at least 100 Czech articles by the end of the year. However, the website is barely known at the moment. Some of the first Czech-language Wikia's are based around popular anime, popular domestic animated series, Dívky Supervelmoc, and fanpages and fanfiction around Czech-Hungarian movie of last year, Halál Angyalai.

2002

The Hungarian colony of Rangyóra declares independance from Hungary as the Kingdom of Rangyóra. The Rangyórans crown a cousin of the current Hungarian king as Queen Elizabeta I of Rangyóra, as a way to cement ties between the nation and their homeland.

Rocktähti Asobi, releases Suuri Varkaus Auto: Beisaido (similar to OTL Grand Theft Auto: Vice City) for the Sentā o saisei 2 and PC, and it takes place in Beisaido (Kōchi, Japan). Soon 黒石くもい幻樂団/Miehistö Kuroishi Kumoi, along with Helsinki Ateljee (similar to OTL Team Soho/SCE London Studio) create a video game together and soon release, Pako (similar to OTL The Getaway) for the Sentā o saisei 2 and PC, with the game taking place in Tokyo, Nippon. Empress Satsuki Gandhi-Komeiji increases her presence in her Erityiset alue Suur Sätōri Prefektuuri, Suomalainen Etelämanner territory, having few more research stations built there; soon she decides to visit Nippon as well, meeting with their Prime Minister/Shogun. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik, trams and railways are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy a bit more.

  • Czechland announces that they will recognize Rangyora, but will not take part in any conflict that may brew between Hungary and Rangyora. The Czech military continues modernization, with the first electricity-powered Military in Europe promised by Czech military commander, Viktor Horák. In the elections, the first female elected President, Nina Novotná, takes power, after a massive 84% support from the Democracy Party of Czechland. TOON-NET representives are sent to other parts of Europe, in order to promote international animation, and allow them on cable and sateilite providers.
    • Why do you think there's going to be a conflict between the two nations? In crowning the Hungarian noblewoman the Rangyorans are saying that they want to remain in the Hungiran sphere of influence.
  • Hungary updates its military. Meanwhile, King Béla dies with no offspring, and is succeeded by his brother Stephen, later crowned Stephen VIII. Rangyóra's independence is recognized.
  • Turkey continues updating its air force. Cyprus warns Turkey about their involvement in their affairs hitherto may cause war, and with much pressure Turkey steps down, and offers the Byzantium Pact (free-trade). Turkestan has mirrored Turkey's policies in giving incentive to trade in Turkestan. The largest Turkish export to Turkestan is the fez. Khiva has given incentives to trade with Turkestan, but because of slight distrust of Turkey, does not do the fovour for it. Khiva has made the Dulaarullah one of its official currencies (even though it is rarely used except amongst merchants). The Turkic Nations has formed. (Kinda like OTL EU)
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces 38 more of the new Ennetsu V4 class nuclear bombs and the space program's probe reaches Neptune, and goes into orbit as the space program scientists use the probe to investigate Neptune's mysteries. Research into wave power continues, which results in a wave power plant being built in Okinawa and 4.5% of Nippon's power now comes from green energy sources. Nano-tex - nanotechnology wearable fabrics invented by Mitsubishi. The Foveon Camera Chip invented by the Sumitomo Group, who then go on to invent the pod-tent as an alternative to traditional tents and young adults wanting a better way to camp at music festivals. Market analysts are proven correct after Nippon's dot.com bubble bursts, causing Nippon to enter a recession. Sales of Toshiba's K-owon music player continue to grow hugely despite the recession, which leads to record sales in Nippon falling drastically thanks to the recession and people downloading music illegally to put on their K-owon players. Toshiba launch their online music store Tunes, and try to encourage K-owon users to download their music files from legal sources. Restrictions are further loosened for mercy killings and assisted suicide for patients with unbearable, terminal illness in Nippon, and in some cases people manage to get away with mercy killings. Otherwise Nippon's recession deepens and it begins to affect other nations around the world.
  • Chamoru amps up the military and the Phone tooth is invented by Norratsu, but the product sees little real success. Norratsu then go on to invent the Birth control patch, which is more popular but the more traditional methods of conception are preferred over the new patch.
  • Shuubudan amps up the military and Nagi Rankan continues to promote the Wikipedia around the globe. The Braille Glove is invented by Yukari Tanizaki for her deaf sister Chiyo, and then the Tanizaki sisters go on a business venture promoting and selling their braille glove invention.
  • The Kingdom of (Northern) France amps up its military and the war against the PRF ends, after a stalemate is met again. Many more lives are lost, and the Kingdom of France's population really begin to oppose the ideas of any more wars against the PRF, as they simply are not worth the lives being lost. The Kingdom moves in to integrate the recently gained territory into the Kingdom. Also the Date Rape Drug Spotter gets invented by a French inventor Sandra Le Fondre.
  • The Kingdom of Guinée amps up its military and the country begins looking into solar power more as a potential energy source, after Guineeian energy minister Dider Triffid visits the commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha to see their solar power plants.
  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha amp up their military and the commonwealth invent the Solar tower too, as a new way of harnessing the sun's power.
  • Wonderlaand's military is amped up and Wonderlaander computer tinker Ole Guntahr-Solajaskar invents the Virtual keyboard as an alternative to traditional keyboards.
  • Mauritius amps up their military and Lucio Kagawa is sent to prison for ten years for copyright infringement, theft and loss of earnings, among things. However, this has sparked a new Internet culture of downloading content for free, illegally; and the Mauritian courts and police struggle greatly to find those responsible.
  • The Federation of the America's federal government continue to fund several hydro and wind power projects to try create clean, non-polluting sources of electricity in the federation, as 15% of the federation's power now comes from green sources of power, as work continues to lower pollution, including joint research with Nippon into wave power. The federal military amps up in all of the member states. The damage caused by last year's large earthquake is cleaned up, only for a large volanco in Songone to errupt; a relief effort begins to stop the damage caused, and the federation forms the Natural disaster relief bureau to centralize natural disaster relief efforts for future natural disaster relief.
  • The Vietnamese continue expanding industry throughout their country. Kenians expand industry throughout their country. Zanzibar expands industry throughout their country.

  • The Tangierans continue expanding industry throughout their country.
  • The Russian space shuttle Burya lifts off into space for the first manned mission on the moon on a spaceplane; using the Energia-2 boosters the ship was able to be launched into lunar orbit, where its main hatch was oppened, and two two-man lunar landers. Two men stayed behind to watch after the ship's systems, and to make sure that the cosmonauts are safely returned to the spaceplane, because they will be returing to it via spacewalk because of the landers' smaller design, and they were not designed to return to the Burya. The return was done very suucessfully, with the Burya's thrusters providing the speed necesary to return to earth just as fast as the missions in the 60s and 70s. The spaceplane is greeted with a hero's welcome as it lands on one of the runways of the Vnukovo international airport, but this was just a PR stunt for the airport to make it gain historical significance (domodedovo was the first and sheremetyevo the first international airport (even if they were all made international in time)). And the in-space connection of the shuttle to in-lunar-orbit energia rockets tests are planned to be done next year. Nine months of martial law and absolute power have done its work, and new elections are finally held, and the Octobrist (conservative) party wins because of backlash against left-wingers because of the Red Claw. Meanwhile, the Empress' last decree before the end of her absolute term was immediate monetary compensation for all costs that they would have had to pay if there were no social protocols and complete tax exemption for one year to the people that were falsely accused and imprisoned under martial law. Maria's words on the matter when she lifted the war measures act off the people were: "I know I can not fully compensate for the horrors these people have suffered, but I can offer my sincere apologies, and hope that in some decade and in some other universe you will forgive me for what I was forced to do, and I hope that you will accept what I can give, and I promise, that this will never happen agian." Later this year, a black arrow is sent above northern spain to survey the area for Red Claw HQ. Meanwhile, using intel gathered during the acting of martial law, the Red Claw elements in Russia are directly linked to the Chechnyan separatist-terrorist group that recently declared an emirate of the caucassus, with their leadership being one and the same. The spetsnaz' Flagship team spetsnaz group 461 (number made by the first six ones in the binary code for Seal Team 6 in binary and is correct to my knowledge) Raids the emirate's HQ and captures about 60% of the highest members and all the planners of the triple 9 attack Residing in Russia at this time. After a mass trial, they are all by a jury "found guilty of conspiring to overthrow the Senate of Her Imperial Majesty Maria II, and in its place putting a government that discriminates and promotes the genocide of all who disagree with it, of conspiring and ordering the murder of thousands of innocents and a member of the Imperial family, and for that reason guilty of high treason, conspiring to destroy the peace and unity in Europe and the Russian commonwealth. The punishment for these crimes must be more severe than death itself, as it is prohibited by Russian law, so these monsters are condemned to life in Katorga, without internet, television or radio, without possibility of building their own home or growing their own food, with no possessions of any kind, and with no connections to the outside world, and are only able to converse between themselves, to ensure that they do not give orders from beond their cell". More black arrows are sent above Spain (these are stealth planes that go into the stratosphere, with the only way they can be detected is by satellite) in hopes that they will find Red Claw HQ and raid it and hopefully end them once and for all, as they are becoming quite a nuisance (I'm planning this to be an Osama bin Laden-esque type thing with Spetsnaz group 461 being an ATL version of Seal Team 6 and Spain being Pakistan)
  • SECL continues to work on caputing members of the Red Claw responsible for former acts of terror and sending them to their former countries to be punished. Meanwhile -----------, SECL launches its first communication satellite, used to begin the SECL internet space. They are unhappy about rumours that Russia is interfering somehow with their internal affairs, an request they do not meddle in SECL affairs. The border with Northern France continues to hold, and SECL requests international aid to stop Northern France from invading.
  • Then why don't you do something about the terrorists in your country? You deal with it, or we're gonna come and deal with it for you.
  • In Scandinavia, the King passes away peacefully in Copenhagen, marking the end of one of the best reigns in Scandinavian history. His son Frederick is coronated as Frederick III, King of Scandinavia and Fyodor IV, Tsar of Russia in the largest coronation ceremony in either Russian or Scandinavian history. The same students who founded Gratipedia (Happy now, Von? I called Wikipedia, anyway.) and the Devotee (Wikia) accidentally gain access to Spanish collectivist government files. They discover that the Red Claw is hiding in either Barcelona or Bilbao, although more likely than not outside of either city. The Scandinavian government receives an unlisted video on ViewBox. It shows a bearded man in his 50s and a bald young man proclaiming themselves to be Carlos and Juan Alveraz, the masterminds behind the Red Claw and the Quadruple 9 Attacks. ViewBox administration deletes the video, but news of it leaks out through WorldLeaks and the government releases a copy of the video to the media, which hits the world soon. "Alvarez Uprisings" begin in Sweden and Denmark, and outside the locations of the Four-9 Attacks. A military officers named Heinrich Himmler (not OTL's one, but of German descent) develops a plan to track down the Red Claw headquarters, but initial results lead the navy to Atlantica. There, a team of spec-ops soldiers raid a mansion the capital city, giving them further information about the Red Claw. However, this is minuscule and told only to the government. However, it does tell us that the Alvarez brothers and their inner circle have fled to Nagasaki or Delhi due to Spain starting to purge the Claw.
    • Scraw you misinterpreted my claim to Wikipedia, I mean it as "I have already done it, you are free to join me, so we don't need another one." You seem to think I'm hogging Wikipedia to myself, which I am not, anyone is free to join in. Also Nippon is extremely anti-collectivist having Red Claw based in Nagasaki isn't a very wise move, surely they'd be based somewhere collectivist like Silesia, Calora, Slovakia or Neue Brandenburg. Or at least some neutral country like Egypt or the federation of the Americas. ~Von.
    • Just like how you misinterpreted me. I called it a long time ago (1951 or 1959). I am ignoring Wikipedia (largel because the use of the Hawaiian word wiki, and I am sure Hawaiian is unlikely to be known well in Shuubudaan (correct spelling?) and since Czechland has recognized Gratipedia. I think we all know well what Wikipedia is about: collaboration; but regardless, I claimed the Wikimedia Foundation oh so long ago.
    • Could I have proof of you claiming the Wikimedia Foundation in the 1950s? I did a quick check but found nothing. Also if you already claimed it, then why no mention of it in your 2001 post? Surely an organization devoted to spreading information freely to all founded before the Internet was invented, would of made a pretty big deal about the Internet and founded this site in the 1990s. Besides all of that, how on earth could it be formed in the 1950s anyway? Such a thing like the whole wikipedia project requires something like the Internet to work. 1950s people didn't have a clue about the Internet becoming the phenomena it is today. And yeah Shuubudan is a Nipponese vassal state, it is in northern Australia, it is a lot closer to Hawaii then Scandinavia in terms of geography and diplomacy (Korea and Nippon good allies). That said, how does Scandinavia have any relation to Hawaii? Apart from when it used to be a Swedish colony decades ago there is no real connection ...
    • Check Archive 10 of the talk page. I called a ton of stuff, as did a lot of others, such as yourself. I did mention it in 2001, although I mentioned Wikipedia only because I was in a rush to go to the store. It was not formed in the 1950s, I only called it. And anyway, mine is named Gratipedia, gratis being the Latin word for share.
    • Well, in this section where you claim that stuff, I don't claim anything. Secondly as many people have proved "dibs" don't seem to mean anything in this game, which you then went on to say "I don't care about calling things and dibs and no backsies anymore because my claims were ignored. I dibsed the first orbital man, no one respected that." Your claim of dibs is therefore redundant.
    • Look, I don't know what your problem is, but why can't we have two separate encyclopedias? Asia vs. Europe, like the olden days?
    • Wow. After years of you wanting peaceful relations you go and do something like this? Look, my problem is that I thought we were meant to be at peace now, and there is no need for two organizations aiming to spread global knowledge to have separate websites. They would have joint operations to do this together. I think we all know well what Wikipedia is about: collaboration. So why you no collaborate?
    • Why? Largely because you Asian people have a bad habit of being ignorant of other people's claims and actions. And I am willing to do this because this is not related to government, it is common people vs. common people. Let's just see which website gains more followers by 2010. In 2011 we can forget about one of the websites.
    • How on earth do we judge which website has more followers? Look, like you say, it's people against people, but they have the exact same goal. The only reason they aren't collaborating is because of your bad grudges. Those people founding these wikipedia-type websites don't have these grudges and so would collaborate. Stop letting your own personal hypocritical grudges getting in the way of plausibility.
    • How? Well, Czechland, Russia and Wales are already using Gratipedia (or at least their people are), I didn't really see anyone talking about Wikipedia. The only reason they aren't collaborating is because of your ultimate refusal to respect me in a such a miniscule aspect. STOP FREAKING INSULTING ME. I hate it when anyone insults anyone else. Cut the shit, damn it.
    • Stop whining when people beat you to inventions, those claims mean nothing and no one is required to follow them. Stop pitching tantrums because people post before you.
  • Italy demands that Turkey pay the entire cost for the repairs of Rome, and all money spent by the Italian government in the rescue and recovery effort, as well as at least 100,000 Lira per casualty. This amounts to a grand total of 2.8 billion Lira. They state that the Turkish government must pay for their failure. They also demand that Turkey place their anti-terrorist parts of their law enforcement under Italian control to search for those who did this, as the Turkish government appears incompetent on their own.
    • Is Lyre your currency?
    • I meant Lira

2003

The Hungarian provinces of Croatia and Dalmatia declare independence from Hungary. They officially join the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, on the condition that the Yugoslavians renew their ties with the Hugarian government. The Yugoslavians send a diplomat to Budapest to negotiate a deal for their return to the Hungarian sphere of influence. They offer the Hungarians heavy discounts on the use of Yugoslavian ports.

  • Further Scandinavian intelligence efforts show that the Alvarez brothers and the Red Claw are not in Japan, but somewhere in Bharat. It asks Bharat to do something about lest European and anti-terrorist nations are forces to send military forces into Bharat. Meanwhile, a new icebreaker is built for the navy, the SNS 9-9-99. Meanwhile, the fourth man to step on the moon (or was it the fifth? depends on how many Japs went on the moon) dies. (HEIL NEIL ARMSTRONG, dead today OTL.) Meanwhile, Four-9 Rioters are angered that the host nations do nothing about the Claw and subsequently burn down the Bharati and Spanish Embassies, although everyone makes it out alive. Meanwhile, Hans Dakgerschtopin walks to the North Pole from Svalbard, being the first man to do so alone. Meanwhile, the largest hailstone ever found lands in Goteberg, Sweden, killing a young couple who were running home during the storm. Meanwhile, four sons of Carlos Alvarez and two of Juan Alvarez were killed in naval combat in the Indian Ocean (Carlos' sons) and in aerial combat over Chechnya (Juan's sons). Meanwhile, studies show that in 2002, average temperatures were seven degrees higher than those of 2001, and the same pattern repeated itself from 1989 onward. The same scientists encourage massive ecological reforms to save the Earth. Terrorist activity fails to cease within the European Federation, and the Presidents of Sweden and Karelia are both assassinated by the Chechnya Claw branch members, and the European Imperial Council (Scandinavian senate + Russian Duma = EIC, located on XYZ Island) faced a minor bombing, killing 97 Councilors. The use of hand held mobile phones and texting, both while driving, is outlawed nation wide. A partial lunar eclipse is seen. Japan, Bharat, Finland, the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha, and the Federation of the Americas are invited to a conference to officially divide Antarctica amongst the nations, instead of having scattered bases and claims. One of the Scandinavian bases witnesses a total solar eclipse. Copenhagen's Grand Central Terminal is bombed four times, once a week in December. The Tsar/King's first daughter is born, Maria Alexandra Feodorovna, Tsarevna of Russia and Princess of Scandinavia.
  • I didn't know. Relax.
  • Seriously what did I just tell you. Read all new posts since your last visit to avoid this sort of stuff. All it takes is a quick Ctrl-f to find out what has happened in the past. I do apologize more my short fuse atm, my exams are nearly over so my stress levels will be down soon I promise lol. Also you forgot to invite Finland to this thing. Quite how your intending my commonwealth & federation to give up some of their land claims to you I am eager to see. Be warned the ante has been upped thanks to that last incident ;)
  • Wales is no longer a member of the Russian Duma, as such we request representation within the European Federation
    • OK.
  • Yeah, these claims were how long ago? A vast majority of those posts have been archived. And I can't use the finder to find "Did Ngainkeha claim Antarctican land?" And I'm not here to take land from you, I'm just divvying up the remainder. And it has only been upped because of your rudeness and ignorance in regards to what I have done in the past.
    • Yes you can. CTRL-F Antarctica. If its been archived then look in the archives & do this. But if you actually bother to do so, then you'll find it was done in posts on the current game page. Also remember rudeness works both ways.
    • And we both know one person starts it.
  • Bharat (through New Vijanagar, the closest land to Antarctica settles, I believe) and Istoias (which is really close) should be included in any Antarctic division instead of a bunch of nations that are nowhere near it.
  • Really? I didn't know about this. Thanks for the heads up.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth's new General Assembly votes on and passes a resolution that will bring Wales to an equal footing with the other European Federation members. There has been ongoing talks of leaving the Commonwealth of Russia, as it is seen as a sign of weakness that a sovereign nation remains at the mercy of a foreign power. The General Assembly passes the Welsh Freedom and Equality Proclaimation which will restore the original Welsh-Scandinavia-Russo King and remove the Brythonic Commonwealth from Russia, becoming fully independent for the first time in 50 years. The government is expected to undergo a period of change as thing are shifted back to a more national focus. Orange Inc launched OS X Neptune as a full feature OS apart from the now aging Saturn OS X. Techsoft launches Doors Viewpath (OTL Vista, without the bad parts) and it gains popularity among many Europeans and other people around the world. The Welsh Committee on Environmental Policies concludes that massive ecological measures must be taken now before the planet suffers from Global Climate change. Scientists agree that within 10-20 years the world could be facing near extinction level weather, including violent hurricanes, Earthquakes and Tsunamis.
    • The Russian Commonwealth is just like the OTL British Commonwealth but with a mutual defence alliance. if you wnat to leave, it's fine with me. You were never part of Russia. You just vote for certain members of the Russian Duma (even then, that was just me not wanting to worry about removing numbers from the members of the Duma when nations decided to separate).
    • Very well. I did not realize how exactly it was set up, We want to try to become completely unbeholden to anyone. Thank you for understanding. It isn't me being hostile, I just want to remove confusion in the world on how we stand. If it is like the British Commonwealth then we may consider staying. I'll just retconn what I said. I was thinking because of our heir crisis in the 40's that Russia effectively seized control of the nation through Alexi.
  • New Wales expands industry and officailly follows the Brythonic Commonwealth in voting for complete removal from the Russian Commonwealth.
  • Neue Brandenburg's last king, who obviously has no real power at this point (and is elected), abdicates. A national referendum disbands the monarchy, and officially makes the country a "People's Union".
  • Hungary continues updating its military. Meanwhile, they accept the Yugoslavian offer, and start working on expanding their remaining ports on Istria, as before then, most maritime trade was made through Croatian, not Istrian ports.
  • The Russian Senate votes to change the name of the Russian commonwealth to the Commonwealth of Nations, due to many perceiving the name meaning that the members are at the mercy of Russia. Small formalities such as the "Russian" in Russian Commonwealth Mutual Defence Pact is officialy removed, seeing as there is no other commonwealth active in the world. The Newest Rurik Class aircraft carrier is launched, the HIMS Admiral Kuznetsov, the most advanced Rurik-class carrier yet.
  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure. Shogun Rin Halonen improves the economy. Animation films and Anime and Manga are continued to be made too. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company continues to making/building kurumás while Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia continues making phones.

Empress Satsuki Gandhi-Komeiji allows Nippon to set up some bases in the Erityiset alue Suur Sätōri Prefektuuri, Suomalainen Etelämanner if they wish; she also extends the Suur Sätōri Prefektuuri from 25th meridian west to 20th meridian west to hopefully have a slice completely to herself. Sonja Komeiji recommends her (Empress) to have some kind of treaty instead. Empress Satsuki Gandhi-Komeiji kinda refuses, and states that Kata Pöysti, was the first to discover Etelämanner (Antarctica) back in 1847. Soon, hearing about this arranged meeting that Scandinavia is hosting, Empress Satsuki Gandhi-Komeiji (wearing the Youmu Konpaku costume, which by the way has become sort of her main things to wear, without the white hair wig though.) attends to see what its about, but enters at extreme caution. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik, trams and railways are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy a bit more. Later, Estonian company Liviko releases a new game for PC, called Suur Veoauto: Üle Maantee Võidusõidu (similar to OTL Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing).
  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military. Supreme Leader Aatto Aaltonen continues to spread heavy pro-government propaganda in Mystiää. The borders continue to be heavily guarded, the security extremely high, and media heavily controlled. Meanwhile, tanks begin smashing through the border, storming right in ... Saigyō. Supreme Leader Aatto Aaltonen offically declares war against them and has his military kill as much enemies as possible, this includes enemy civilians.
  • Imperial Confederation of Saigyō continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. Shogun Yumiko Niskanen declares war against the invading Mystiääns. Soon, Severe Typhoon Ylitalo with winds up to 171kmh makes a surprise hit into Saigyō, slaming into Kazami, and Lower Kōshi, then far eastern part of Sunda. The storm finally dissolves near far upper Australia. The Kōshis and Kazamis begin to clean up and other stuff after the storm passed. With both the bad typhoon and the invasion, the confederacy is in a tight spot, and loses much land in the Malaysian peninsula to Mystiää, but once the typhoon had passed, Saigyo was able to re-group and stop the advancing Mystiää.
    • Nippon joins the war on Saigyo's side to protect them from the invading Mystiääns who are doing this war purely to prop up their falling regime. Nippon also wants to protect her near-by Ringga colony from any possible Mystiään attack and make sure the straits of Malacca aren't blocked off.
  • In Käwäshiro, Hellevi Ayana, Fumikazu Mäkelä, and Annika Kari releases a parody of travel guidebooks, called Molvanîa. Meanwhile, a building based on the blueprints of the Juche Tower (given to Käwäshiro back in 1963) begins construction in Someromokōu, but is renamed into the Flandre-Torni (torni is tower in Finnish) and made to represent democracy.
  • Czechland has fully reached digitalization, now on standards with Finland and Brythonic Commonwealth's level. A very hot summer strikes, with weather reaching as high as 41°C in Prague, leading to mass dehydration and death. At the same time, tinder-dry conditions light up the huge forests around Czechland's reserves on fire, leading to a horrific fire in eastern Czechland (the Czechslovak province, due to the high population of the Slovak minority, and its proximity to Bratislava, a major Slovak city in the Slovak Autonomous District of Hungary). It gets worse as almost no rain is recorded during the wet season of the summer in 95% of Czechland, leading to a catastrophic water shortages. A violent anti-government riot breaks out during the 8th day over 35°C weather, with no rain or any drop in temperature predicted for the rest of August. Rolling blackouts cause damage, causing at least 85 Billion Kč in economic and structural damage, and at least 300 deaths and 4500 injuries during a five-day state of emergency. By September 2, only 35 mm of precipitation were recorded, when at least 438mm of rain should have occured since May, which were only two days, one of which was a violent downpour of 31mm within an hour in early June. Water usage is to be heavily monitored, especially when resovoirs run empty for the first time in over a century. The hot weather ends unusually late in late October, when averages finally drop below 25°C. The damage had already been done, and Czech officials are forced to ask other nations for water and food, due to a massive famine that has scorched Eastern Europe, with Czechland getting the brunt of it.
    • Empress Satsuki Gandhi-Komeiji of Finland sends lots of food and water to Czechland.
    • President Novotná thanks Finland for their help, especially since our country is in a massive crisis at the moment.

The Red Claw's head of intelligence is captured in southern Spain, but so far has told authorities nothing about Red Claw operations. Worried about losing Mystiää SECL begins to send aid and troops. Burgundy is absorbed into SECL and they ask for a place in the commonwealth of nations.
    • The Kingdom of France offers the new SECL superstate a non-aggression pact.
  • More attacks appear within Turkey Targeting government building throwing Turkey into complete chaos. Many small parties have appeared and the government only has control over the coast. The Turkey negotiates with Cyprus to buy 3km of land in the NE for 200, 000 dulaarullah (I don't know if this is against the rules or not), and sets its capital there, in fear of extremist, collectivist and other rebel attacks.
    • You cannot control other nations to say they randomly sell you land. Your currency is worthless, 200,000 dulaarullah is probably like 10,000 dollars. Cyprus isn't going to sell out their own people because their former oppressors give them a tiny pitance of land.
    • No the Lira was useless ... The Dulaarullah isn't though. No one but the people still under Turkish control uses it, which causes massive deflation ... Anyhow, that plot of land didn't have any people on it, only nature. But I guess I still can't make them sell me land.
    • You are wrong. The lira in this timeline has had centuries of stability and prosperity to bolster its value. Your country did not exist until twenty years ago. To say that your funny money is more valuable than the Lira, which is likely one of the top ten most valuable currencies in the world, is an insult to Lurk's work.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces 49 more of the new Ennetsu V4 class nuclear bombs and the space program's probe leaves Neptune's orbit, and goes off to go and orbit Pluto. The space program send a new probe to go investigate Venus, Mercury and the Sun too. Research into wave power continues; and more green energy projects begin. This and many other stimulus packages help to bring Nippon out of recession. Optical Camouflage System invented by Mitsubishi while working on a new secret government project. Toyota release the world's first hybrid car in a bid to help lower pollution. Toshiba releases a series of robot toys for children, the most popular being the Robot Dog Aibo. Mio Akiyama invents the No-Contact Jacket and sets up the Gali Corporation to produce and sell the no-contact jacket. It is used mainly to protect security personal. However, fuelled by her high sales figures to the police and military, Gali begin selling it to the public, marketing it as a personal protection device to stop muggings and rape. Nippon also negotiates with the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha on a deal to let Nippon establish bases in the commonwealth's territory in Eastern Antarctica.
  • Chamoru amps up the military. The Infrared Fever Screening System is invented by Norratsu, who use the system in their buildings to scan for people with a high temperature from a fever or sars. This is mostly done to try prevent diseases being spread at Norratsu and to check for any virus outbreaks. Norratsu also clone a horse, and contribute greatly to the Human Genome Project allowing it to be successfully completed with 99% of the human genome sequenced to 99.99% accuracy.

    • Sure, you can have 2.8 billion Lira. Consider it worthless, though ...
    • I wouldn't talk if I were you. Your country's recent founding, not to mention the recent instability, would likely devalue the "dorkylala" into basically monopoly money.

2004

The Islamic fundamentalist government in Seminole collapses, and the resulting secular government applies to join the Federation of the Americas.

The English, who have long been chafing under the cultural domination of the Scots, officially declare independance as the Republic of England. The first English Prime Minister , John Harrison, is sworn into office in an elaborate ceremony in the former provincial capital of London. Prime Minister Harrison forms the English Republican Army as a safequard against British efforts to reabsorb the English. The English border stretches no further north than the Welsh border

Recent intel smuggled out of Turkey indicates that the Turkish government may have had a hand in the recent terrorist attacks. Top secret plans entailing the infiltration and annexation of Cyprus are also leaked. These relevations severely damage ,if not destroy, the credibility of the Turkish government.

Yankovic, you can't tear every single piece of land and landlock someone. Let Hungary keep a seaport at least, your micronationalism is over the top.

I allready stated that Hungarian use of Yugoslavian ports is practically free of charge.

    • The Federation agrees, and the federation will host a conference later this year about dividing Antarctica between the nation's laying claim to the land.
    • Really?
    • Well, you've not really done anything with your conference. Plus you already have the North Pole.
    • And that's because you as Ngainkeha and Eetoria and that other nation have not accepted the invitation yet. And the South Pole is worth far more in research value that the North Pole.
    • Please check my last post for the commonwealth. Again, I ask you to please read all new posts since you last played to avoid this stuff in the future. Please can you actually do this, your embarrassing yourself.
    • I did. Wonderlaand's post just makes things worse and the Commonwealth's post only say that it is willing to negotiate, not that it will attend (negotiate could practically mean meeting secretely with some random nation's government and splitting it in half). And if that does mean that, I think it would simpler for us all if you could have responded with a sub-bullet such as this one.
    • I would of mentioned if it was some secret random meeting, giving what has been going on I thought it was quite obvious, but never mind. I can see how it could of been misinterpreted.

  • Turkey's fragmentation gets worse, as a citizens explained on Turkey News, "I have been all over the north, and every two miles, it seems like I'm under a new government". The Collectivist have taken most major sea ports. Turkey is left with only 3 cities on the coast, which are all armed to the teeth. On November 4th there is the "Commons Convention" which aimed to unite the many Collectivist, with limited success, the outcome being a confederation with a really weak government. The Islamist have tried a similar, but the only success is in small coalition building. The Democrats (in favour of democracy) start to appear in the North while the Republicans (in favour of Republic) arise in the east.
    • A republic is a form of democracy.
    • No, a republic is where a people elect representatives, which can do whatever they want (may not want to if they want to get re-elected in the more conscious countries), a democracy is where the people are directly involved in decision making. You could make the argument about indirect democracy, but I don't recognise that as legit, it's the scaredy-cat way to say republic ...

  • In Czechland, the economy is impacted further by Hungary's loss of access to the sea , and with strong anti-Yugoslav sentiment, anger builds. Fish prices soar at least three times their amount. While Hungary may have free access to Yugoslav ports, Czechland doesn't. While the President asks for an economic deal with Yugoslavia, other politicians demand at least free access to the sea, along with many citizens. Among other things, if Turkey continues the way it is, the Czech Air Force is planned to prepare 10 CZ-X89 for their first military application yet, and prepared to take action if Turkey goes violent. Plans to cut military funding by half, and force a limit of 100,000 soldiers in the Czech Land Forces is cancelled (the military was one of the first in Eastern Europe to abolish Conscription), as many fear that Yugoslavia might take over Hungary, Austria or even Czechland. On a lighter note, massive monuments are constructed by volunteers, to thank the Finnish and Brythonic Commonwealth for their help, and Jakub Kučera, creator of Dívky Supervelmoc, develops a new show after six seasons and 73 episodes, one of the longest Czech animated series ever made. The new show is called Imaginárními Kamarády, (OTL Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends), which is expected to become a big hit.

The Russians test their Mars system by launching a probe to Mars via an unmanned space shuttle. The Russian orbital docking system fails, and the shuttle is forced to return to the Earth. A system using the Atlantic claw is proposed, and hopes that the Russians can put a man on Mars by 2012 is becoming an official goal of the European space agency. Meanwhile, the older parts of the ESS are sent down to earth, and newer replacement modules are sent up using rockets and a shuttle in orbit with an Atlantic Spain via Black Arrow spy planes, Spetsnaz Group 461 drops in for a raid, and during it, kills the leadership of the Claw, because they were shooting back, effectively decapacitating the Claw, leaving a large power vacuum.

  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military. Supreme Leader Aatto Aaltonen continues the invasion of Saigyō, and with support from the SECL manages to make more slightly decent advances, though by half-way through the year, are now being pushed back.
  • Imperial Confederation of Saigyō continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. The military continue fighting against the Mystiääns and begin to push them back somewhat quicker but by the 10th month a short stalemate happens, and on half-way of the last month of this year the military begins to push them back bit more. Shogun Yumiko Niskanen plans on defeating them and hopefully annex the former land into Pahang upon their defeat. Later, Kazunori Hyvönen releases Gran Turismo 4 this year. Sanae Heikkinen also releases her new console, the 星ザコMe (OTL Nintendo Wii) (on a side note, 'me' in Finnish means 'we' in British, strangely enough) and the slogan for her new console is Haluaisimme pelata (Wii would like to play).
  • In Käwäshiro, Hellevi Ayana, Fumikazu Mäkelä, and Annika Kari releases two more Aikaerorasitus Opaskirja books, called Pfaffland; fictional nation with a composite of many stereotypes and clichés about Northern Europe and Gastronesia, fictional nation with a composite of many stereotypes and clichés about South Asia.

  • The Myanma continue to expand industry throughout their country.
  • The British continue expanding industry throughout their country. Flemish Shogun Lisa Peeters dies at the age of 74. Her daughter, Eriko Peeters, is crowned as the third Shogun of the independant Flemish Shogunate.
  • Hold the bullets here, I'm not sure if you can actually do that. I mean the whole turning England into a client state. I think they had a reason for seceding, and I am very very sure that they would not once more become subordinate to Britain after purposefully leaving the nation.
  • The Tangierans continue expanding industry throughout their country.
  • Turkey is offended by the recent attacks on its legitimacy. Meanwhile, the feminist and and liberals also appear in the north. The Collectivist have built a strong navy in Turkey that has surpassed the National One, mostly because of captured ships. The Islamist have taken roughly 1/3 of the air force's plains, which the government is worried about.
  • Czechland would happy to unify with Slovakia, to form the new nation, Czechoslovakia. While the capital will remain in Prague, a semi-autonomous government will be permitted in Bratislava, to appease the Slovak nationalists who wish not to merge with the Czechs. Slovak will become the second official language of Czechoslovakia, since while together, we will celebrate the country's diversity. Many public services will form together in both regions, to celebrate. Many Slovaks in Czechland are celebrating, since all crossings into the former Slovak regions will be taken down, and free access will be permitted. Ski resorts in Eastern Slovakia are expected to see a boom in customers from Czechland who couldn't initially afford it, leading to mountain village businesses preparing for extra Czech customers. This couldn't come at a better time, since the weather in the country has improved, albeit with dangerously high levels of precipitation during the spring and summer, including at one point in June, a storm of 80-100mm falling in much of the central region, including Prague, within 24 hours, causing for flood warnings. Short term effects were dangerous to farms, in both Czech and Slovak areas. However, on an optimistic note, there is enough rain and snow throughout 2005 to end the droughts in both regions. The Czech military has decided not to take action in Turkey, due to the unification process of the Armáda České (Czech Armed Forces) and the Provizórnych Ozbrojené Sily Slovenskí (Slovak Provisionary Armed Forces) into the Československá Armáda (Czechoslovak Army in both languages), both the Ground Forces and Air Force of both countries are combined. (Marine Patrol on lakes and rivers are to be handled by the Czechoslovak Federal Police). The Vzdušné Sily na Slovenskú (VSS/Air Force of the Slovak) were made of older Hungarian jet fighters from the 50's or 60's, which may be integrated into the combined Czechoslovak Air Force with upgrades for defence purposes. Planned intervention in Turkey will be held off, due to current work with the new military.
    • Think of the mod event as an apology for any economic duress caused by shrinking Hungary's Ionic coast.
    • No problem. Besides, in some wayws, I'm actually kind of loving the fact that the reverse of OTL is occuring. (Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia forming)
  • Neue Brandenburg wins the Cricket world Cup, unleashing celebrations throughout the country. The position of President is officially ended, with only an executive council of technocrats to negotiate with foreign nations, and an independant judiciary. All other matters are handled by popular referendum.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth continues to expand industry, as well as completely revamping the national banking system to bring it more in line with the European Federation.. The Prime Minister announces a plan to form a "European Commonwealth of Nations" that will have a unified monetary system and a strong Europe wide defense network. Each and every nation involved will remain fully independent, and will retain their own military defenses. However, a certain portion of each nation's military is to be sent to the European Defense Force, to help better protect Europe. Wales has already secured support from many wealthy members of the European Federation (Wales, Scandinavia and Russia). This supra-national federation is not the work of Wales alone, but also from the original Scandinavian idea. The General Assembly further supports the motion. The Brythonic Commonwealth thanks Finland for their aid in or time of need. The drought continues, but to a lesser degree as crops do yield this year, just in a limited quantity. The Environmental Council continues to warn of a crisis looming world wide. They ask that Scandinavia, Russia, Wales, Nippon, and Vietnam form the Environmental Security Committee to better regulate global environmental concerns. A proposal is put up for adoption for the world called the Plymouth Declaration (OTL Kyoto Treaty) that all nation by law must limit CO2 emissions or face economic fees.
  • New Wales expands infrastructure and modernises the school system. Resorts continue being built.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces 48 more of the new Ennetsu V4 class nuclear bombs and the space program's probe continues travelling toward Pluto. The space program's new probe continues travelling to Venus too. Research into wave power continues; and more green energy projects begin. Kao-hon continues to gain popularity as nearly every university in Nippon is part of the Kao-hon franchise. Ginga no tabi finish negotiations to expand the Asian Co-operation Space station to allow people to stay over in space in the ACSS-Hotel. Ginga no tabi get to work building the ACSS-Hotel and five space shuttles to transport guests to and from the hotel.
    • Nippon is invited as a member of the Environmental Security Committee.
    • Nippon isn't entirely sure if penalizing nations economically for pollution is the way forward, as it could end up sending nations into recession. So instead of penalizing, Nippon thinks we should instead help one another with green energy research and projects. For example helping the Kingdom of Guinée with their proposed Grand Saharan solar power plant project. Then once we have viable alternative sources of green energy, then and only then, should be start penalizing other nations for not being green. Nippon doesn't think it is fair for poorer nations who can't afford big changes like this to be penalized and this move will also see the destruction of many industries (e.g., the oil industry), so we need to help and compensate those nations who rely lots on the oil industry.
    • The Commonwealth agrees that les developed nations should not be penalised. How about nations that are developed, but refuse to keep to green standards?
  • Chamoru amps up the military and Norratsu start efforts to analyse the new H5N1 strain of bird flu, after the disease starts killing a few people in Saigyo.
  • Shuubudan amps up the military and Nagi Rankan continues to promote the Wikipedia around the globe, with the sites popularity growing lots as it becomes one of the most popular sites on the Internet.
  • The Kingdom of (Northern) France amps up its military and the Kingdom finishes building up the defensive line to cover the entire SECL border. The Kingdom also begins researching into green energy, focusing a lot on wave and wind power.
  • The Kingdom of Guinée amps up its military and the country builds several more solar power plants, and continues pushing for the Grand Saharan solar power plant project. The nation also begins charging companies and people extra tax for operation machinery which excessively pollutes, be it a motor vehicle or a factory.
  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha amp up their military and the commonwealth build more solar power plants. They also try to press on with negotiations over Antarctica land claims, but the commonwealth stand by its belief that nations which actually have territory in the southern hemisphere should get the land.
  • Wonderlaand's military is amped up and Wonderlaand also give up their claims in Antarctica to the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha in exchange for an extension of Wonderlaand's EEZ in the coral sea as the Commonwealth gives up part of this EEZ to Wonderlaand, as the Commonwealth believe there is more worth in obtaining Antarctica.
  • Mauritius amps up their military and the nation's economic depression continues.
  • The Federation of the America's federal government continue to fund several hydro and wind power projects to try create clean, non-polluting sources of electricity in the federation, as 15.9% of the federation's power now comes from green sources of power, as work continues to lower pollution, including joint research with Nippon into wave power. The federal military amps up in all of the member states, and federal military presence in Antarctica expands as more outposts are made, including a maximum security prison complex. The federation helps Seminole integrate fully into the federation by building roads, train tracks, infrastructure and local government institutions. The federation is also hit by a large and devastating hurricane this year, and a lot of coastal and low lying areas of Mixxixxippi are flooded.
  • Scandinavia recognizes Baishan. A team of astronomers discovers a new far-flung planet and name it Eris, the tenth planet. The Valencia probe lands on Titan, the moon of Saturn. Scandinavia signs a treaty with Brandenburg, making it a client state of the European Federation.

2006

Mali expands into the black area that borders it to its south, absorbing it all. Taureg, meanwhile, expands and takes control of all unclaimed areas between it and Morocco. Sara declares independence from Sindustan (last Sindustani breakaway). The peoples of the unclaimed areas bordering Egypt ask to join Egypt, and the area between the two large former Hungarian colonies in North America that is unclaimed has so been settled by settlers there that they ask to join one of the two. The civil disarray former Ge empire areas unite to form the South American Democratic Republic.

The Northern regions of England secede from the English Republic, as the area is havily populated with worshippers of Caodaiism and is uncomfortable with being ruled by Catholic London. The resulting state agrees to be annexed by Britain as the province of North England. A man named Arthur Kirkland is elected as the first provincial Governor of North England.


NOTE: I've decided to replace the frankly bland name of "East Asian" Christianity and replace it with "Caodaiism".

  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure. Shogun Rin Halonen improves the economy. Meanwhile, Liitto Kansainvälisen Auto/Kokusai Jidōsha Renmei (国際自動車連盟) hosts the forty fifth season of Kaava Yksi in Finland, Saigyō, Nippon, Bhārat, Eesti Vabariik, Shuubudan, Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha and this season sees a Saigyō driver winning.

Hardcore Tekno, Tekno, Synthpop, Elektro, Trance continues to dominates the Finnish music scene. Later 黒石くもい幻樂団/Miehistö Kuroishi Kumoi releases another Itäinen Projekti game, 東方風神録/Itäinen Fuujinroku (game similar to OTL 東方風神録 ~ Mountain of Faith with slightly altered storyline). Empress Satsuki Gandhi-Komeiji gets more angered and wonders if the conflicting issue is resolved or not, as there doesn't seem to be any response from the Federation of the Americas; meanwhile, she sets up a few more military outposts in her Erityiset alue Suur Sätōri Prefektuuri, Suomalainen Etelämanner to enforce her claims and to add to that, an Utsuho Reiuji statue is built next to the Empress's personal research station on the right. Empress Satsuki Gandhi-Komeiji later calms down by going to a few Anime conventions. The fast food/restaurant chain Rin's releases a new menu item, called the Pekonitor (OTL Baconator). Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik, infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy a bit more.
    • The federation was going to do a conference but then Scandinavia chimed in and said to go to their conference, which is practically non-existent as they have done nothing with it. The federation is tired of waiting for Scandinavia and doesn't think they should even be involved in this conference as they have no connection to Antarctica at all,
      Divided-antarctica-map2

      Divided Antarctica

      you know their nearest territory being on the other side of the world. So the federation will host a new conference this year after the failure of the Scandinavian one. Federation diplomats will draw up a map dividing Antarctica between the nations which have claimed parts of Antarctica (i.e., the federation, Finland, Scandinavia, Bharat and the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha). This map is shown opposite, using country colours to divide the Antarctic continent. This okay with you guys?
    • Empress Satsuki Gandhi-Komeiji mumbles about some of the loss of her claims (part of the Antarctic Peninsula is cut in half) but decides to, unhappily, accept it to avoid making the Federation of Americas angry.
  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military. Supreme Leader Aatto Aaltonen continues the invasion of Saigyō, and has the military attack at full force, but is failing. By the 9th month, Mystiää is 90% under Saigyō rule. By the second week of the 12th month, Mystiää is finally defeated, and Supreme Leader Aatto Aaltonen is arrested and sent to the ICHR (International Court of Human Rights) in Sunda. Meanwhile, Atto Aaltonen's son, Aatami Aaltonen, flees to Southern European Collectivist League and forms the DPR of Mystiää Government in Exile there.
    • ICHR it is, also feel free to come up with his sentencing yourself. The ICHR is for all so no need to get me involved ~Von.
  • Imperial Confederation of Saigyō continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. The military continue fighting against the Mystiääns and begin major advances into their territory, easily overrunning them and by the end of the month fully defeats them. Shogun Yumiko Niskanen decides to annex Mystiää into the Region of Pahang, thus reunifying the Malaysian Peninsula. Rebuilding begins in all damaged areas. The ICHR finds Aatto Aaltonen guilty of his crimes and thus is killed off. Meanwhile, Sachie Mäki, from Kazami, creates a video of Nyan Kissa (OTL Nyan Cat) and releases it on the internet, and she later coins the term Internet-ilmiö (Internet Meme).
  • In Käwäshiro, Hellevi Ayana, Fumikazu Mäkelä, and Annika Kari begins planning for another Aikaerorasitus Opaskirja book. Flandre-Torni continues construction as well and doesn't get finished this year, but will surely be finished next year. Later the Radio Television Käwäshiro (RTK) release a (fake) 90 minute news report about the USA officially dissolving the Federation of the Americas and letting everyone go (basically similar to the OTL Flemish Secession hoax/Bye Bye Belgium) made by the RTBF). Thirty minutes into the program – by which point RTK's response line had been flooded with calls – the caption reading "Tämä ei ehkä ole fiktiota" ("This may not be fiction"), which was repeated constantly as a subtitle to the images on screen is replaced with a caption reading "Tämä on fiktio" ("This is fiction"). The fictional 90 minute news report is also released on the Internet too.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth begins to send diplomats and financial aid to England in hopes of convencing England to join the Brythonic Commonwealth in time. The General Assembly agrees with Nippon and removes the penalty for a none green nation if your are a poor or developing nation. The stipulation remains if you are an industrialized, wealthy nation. The Prime Minister signs key green regulations that put a regulatory cap on large industries like Orange Computers and Toshiba, to ensure that all indusrties comply with environmental standards within Commonwealth lands. Orange applies for the Green Leaf label, which is an Environmentally safe label given to low emmission equipment. Orange launches OS X Neptune 2.4.3 with an improved web browser and better security. The uBox 180 is launched and becomes a popular game platform throughout the European Federation. The Brythonic Commonwealth congratulates Brandenburg on their joining with the European Federation. A new game called Mass Space (OTL Mass Effect series) is launched. Mass Space is an action adventure game where the users decisions are extremely important to the overall outcome of the game. The game centres around a lone Space Marine by the name of Commander Beck, who learns a terrible secret about the true reason humanity and other civilizations were created. With this information, he is on an epic quest to save the galaxy from the "Dark Ones". The game is also one of the first to permit same sex relationships while in game. Serus Game Studios launches the Elder Council Series IV: Extinction(OTL Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion) a game centered around a deep, engaging storyline that will pull the player into a world of magic and intrigue in which anything is possible. Forge your own destiny, or save the Kingdom from extinction, the Choice is Yours. The cellular company Dragonfire releases the first touch screen phone called the Dragonfire Elite. it is carried only on Harding Wireless, King Communications, and Cellcom in Wales, but is also carried throughout the European Federation and in Czechoslovakia and Italy.
    • Nippon is glad that the Brythonic Commonwealth has agreed with our proposals. Nippon would like for nations to be given 5 years to implement these green changes though, as charging nations straight away for this stuff before they've had chance to react is a bit unfair.
      • The Brythonic Commonwealth agrees with Nippon
    • The Federation of the Americas asks to join this Environmental Security Committee, as they are a major world power and also a great force in the world of environmental protection and green policy.
      • The Federation is invited as a member.
        • The Federation accepts.
    • Kingdom of Guinée asks the committee to help the Kingdom realize their proposed Grand Saharan solar power plant project, as it would provide a green source of electricity for all of Africa.
      • On behalf of the Environmental Committee, Wales will aid Guinée. We are sure that our other environmental allies will aid as well.
        • Guinée thanks Wales for agreeing to support the project. Guinée also proposes starting similar projects in other large deserts in the world.
  • New Wales grows its banking infrastructure to keep up with the increasing amount of tourists. ECIV Extinction becomes a massively large hit, as does Mass Space. The new Dragonfire Elite is released on Cellcom South.
  • The economy in Czechoslovakia is beginning to restabilize, though not as strong as before the 2004 famine, and the 2005 unification between Czechland and Slovakia. (Similar to OTL West and East Germany reunification). However, things are turning out better than ever, the west (former Czechland) is focusing on technology, while the east (former Slovakia) has better access to modern equipment, and Bratislava, Košice and Žilina are becoming industrial booming cities. Popular Slovak (though of Slovak-descent, he was born in Hungary) progressive house musician, Michal Tóth, also known by his stagename, sikmau5 (OTL deadmau5), becomes a popular musician in Prešov, and at a good time, since his talents are heard on radios throughout Czechoslovakia, gaining a Czech fanbase early too. Sikmau5 becomes a cult hit throughout Europe, due to having no spoken dialogue through his music, with the exception of crossing over with another small-time musician from the same city. (which was obviously Slovak-language). Škoda Auto expands operations to Slovakia, and promises that electric vehicles will be available in Bratislava and Košice by 2008, with full Slovak coverage (along with Czech) by hopefully 2012. The Czech side of the country, has electronic stations covering 95% of the country, is already developing new models of the electric vehicle, including trucks and minivans. The new models are to be called EX-2007, since they are planned for release on roads on December 13, only a couple of weeks before next year. Internet-ilmiö enter the Czechosllovak lexicon, as many videos of cult hit programming hit the website, and many Czechs get addicted to ViewBox. However, Czech website developers create a major rival to the website, named VidView. This is also how sikmau5 becomes popular in Europe within months.The Dragonfire Elite sells out in Czechoslovakia within three hours, and becomes the first real exposure to high-tech devices to the growing middle-class Slovaks. The President also looks into forming an economic deal with Yugoslavia, allowing to use their ports, in return, factories could help construct goods for the Yugoslavs at a lower price.
  • Neue Brandenburg begins a policy of allowing people to live in the Amazon rainforest, to allow them to learn to appreciate the natural world.

  • Taiwanese continue to expand industry throughout their country.
  • The Myanma continue to expand industry throughout their country.
  • The British continue expanding industry throughout their country.
  • The Tangierans continue expanding industry throughout their country.
  • The Collectivist army flees to the North of Turkey into liberal territory. The republicans generally side with Italy due to their ideological similarities. The republicans have tried to make a united faction, but it keeps breaking apart within a few days, due to a leadership problem, which has made the republicans loose credibility in favour of the Democrats and extremist, leading to many small cops within different republican factions. Many democrats along with feminists, however, raid across the border into Nicaea, to get supplies to be a dominant power. The last held villages/cities by the Turkish government are Siti and Ilag.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces 30 more of the new Ennetsu V4 class nuclear bombs and the space program's probe continues traveling toward Pluto. The space program's new probe reaches Venus and goes into orbit. Research into wave power continues; and more green energy projects begin. Kao-hon continues to gain popularity as nearly every university in Nippon is part of the Kao-hon franchise, and people are allowed to keep their Kao-hon accounts after they graduate so that people can keep in touch with their friends after graduation. Kao-hon also expands out of Nippon into other nations as nearly all of the world's top universities now have Kao-hon accounts. Ginga no tabi continue building the ACSS-Hotel and the 5 space shuttles to transport guests to and from the hotel.
  • Chamoru amps up the military and several diseases are wiped out in the island nation, and people entering the country now have to have a medical check to make sure the diseases aren't being re-introduced.
  • Shuubudan amps up the military and Nagi Rankan continues to promote the Wikipedia around the globe, with the sites popularity growing lots as it becomes one of the most popular sites on the Internet.

The nation enters negotiations with nations in the Sahara dessert to try to allow Guinée to build the large series of solar power plants.
  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha amp up their military and the commonwealth build more solar power plants, trying to build something similar to the Grand Saharan solar power plant project.
  • Wonderlaand doesn't really do anything this year. They build up industry and industrialize some more.
  • Mauritius amps up their military and the nation's economic depression continues. However, the worst of the depression is over and the nation's economy looks set to grow again next year.
  • The Federation of the America's federal government continue to fund several hydro and wind power projects to try create clean, non-polluting sources of electricity in the federation, as 16.2% of the federation's power now comes from green sources of power, as work continues to lower pollution, including joint research with Nippon into wave power. More offshore wind farms are built in the Caribbean in the Pacific. The federal military amps up in all of the member states, and the federation helps Seminole integrate fully into the federation by building roads, train tracks, infrastructure and local government institutions.
  • The Russian military upgrades itself, and the Russian space programme successfuly tests its in-orbit docking of the Shuttle burya with a second Energia-2 rocket. The Russians seek to look to Novorossiya and the Iroquois Confederacy, who draw 95% from clean power (unaltered Iroquoyan culture, much more prone to not harming environment or at least minimizing dammage while industrialising). The Russian hydroelectric dam system is improved, and the world's largest is oppened at Shuevsk. Russia becomes one of the world's leaders in hydroelectricity, and is looking to improve their techniques by looking toward replacing their nuclear power stations with other methods. However, in the north and extreme cold and isolated vilages of the Russian Taiga, the only sane method of generating power is through combustion. The nuclear and hydroelectric generation of power are equal by now.

2007

The panhandle of Baishan officially declares independance from Baishan as the Eskimo Republic. The first High Chief is sworn in at a grand ceremony in the Eskimo capital of Inuvik. The Eskimos begin incentive programs to bring the rest of the Eskimo population of Baishan into their coountry.

The Mormons, a religious movement that started recently in the former Hungarian nations of Síkságok Nemzet and Newfoundland, leave the country to seek a home of their own. They settle in the OTL states of Utah and Nevada, where they proclaim the independance of the Holy Republic of Deseret. The leader of the Mormons, József Kovács, is chosen as the first President in a ceremony in the brand-new capital of Sótóváros. NOTE: This is part of my efforts to fill the enormous hole in the middle of Western North America. Crim seems to want northing to do with North America, so I've decided to change that.

2008

The Mormons found Oázis (OTL Las Vegas) because of their access to the invaluable artesian wells. The city quickly becomes a busy trading post as Deseret's Gold Rush is in full swing. The Mormons create a sprawling spread of canals to help irrigate the parched desert. The Mormons construct a massive hydroelectric Dam on the Kēluólāduō River, which supplies both power and water to both Deseret and the neighboring nations of Jiāzhōu and Dekèsàsī. The Gold Rush also gives Deseret a healthy Chinese population, the majority of whom have no intent of staying permanently. The remainder are the slim minority who have converted to Mormonism.

Deseret's Gold Rush causes most of the neighboring nations to expand their territory looking for precious metals. The people of Dekèsàsī enjoy a silver rush and Jiāzhōu enjoys a Gold Rush. The remaining unoccupied territory is seized by the Chinese nations. China's two older client states are absorbed into Dekèsàsī, as their economies have been ruined in recent years.

The first LGBT Pride parade takes place in Bratislava, but is still subject to unusually high levels of homophobia from the conservative Slovak population. The Social Christian Slovak Party, along with the Social Conservative Czech Party, both work to try to recriminalize homosexuality, though it's the former that is putting a bigger effort to banning homosexuality. The final season of Imaginárními Kamarády is aired, with the series finale airing June 10, 2008.

    • Not to burst your bubble or anything, I think the Federation of the Americas is the world's greenest nation, after all 17% of the federation's power comes from green sources of power (e.g. hydroelectric, solar, wave, wind, etc.) and they've been doing all this environmental protection stuff longer than anybody. The Kingdom of (Northern) France is also very green with 1.2% of the Kingdom's electricity coming from green sources. The Kingdom of Guinée and the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha are also quite green, and both pursuing large scale solar power projects. Just don't forget my other nations basically, Nippon certainly isn't greener than the federation for definite. ~Von

  • The Northern Turkish republic is by Turkey News called, "a continual state of warfare" Even unification hasn't stopped factions from forming or being destroyed. Some Liberal factions co-operate to capture a minor town in Nicaea and sack it. The Turkish Government has given money to Nicaea as a result and asked for its pardon. Meanwhile, because of Italian invasion, the Turkish government has agreed to give more power to the Xalifev (taken from the Xalifet) and abolish the Soljuyev, and in it place be "The Chamber". Italian has been added as an official language, promoted, and Turkish is looked down on for government use. The Turkish government has also done what the nation has not before. Allowing 12 Italians into the Xalifet, all being Muslim of course. (If not, the newly established territory would rebel about Christians being in their Parliament) However, for the chamber, voters are encouraged to vote for Italians, a recent poll has voted 27.7% (The largest party by tenths of a percent) by for the National Capitalist Party. A party led by an Italian Christian.
    • Most Italians who actually are residents of Turkey are descendents of the old Venetian conquerors. It would actually be more plausible for this minority to have many Muslim Italians in it.
    • I never said otherwise. Just trying to making notice of the Italian stabilization of Southern Turkey ... Some Republican Factions might join, unlikely, however. Most rebels hate Italians, with reasons, but of course, there are many exceptions. Collectivist, Democrats, Feminist and Liberals absolutaly will not. I'll edit the 2010 map for Turkey, it's kind of complicated.
  • The Vietnamese continue expanding industry throughout their country. The Vietnamese end their involvement in Turkey. The Kenians expand industry throughout their country. Zanzibar expands industry throughout their country.

  • The British continue expanding industry throughout their country.
  • The Tangierans continue expanding industry throughout their country.
  • Most Italian military forces begin to withdraw from the stabilized portion of Turkey, leaving a few troops for stability. Italy begins to work on closer relations with its breakaways, trying to determine why they have split away from Italy. Slight amounts of micronationalism arise everywhere in Italy other than the mainland southern portions which are solid Neapolitan in culture. I have a plan, I don't want any moderator revolts taking advantage of these small amounts of micronationalism.
  • Neue Brandenburg sees a law passed to cap the work week at 35 hours. Government investment in robotics technology is raised.
  • Scandinavia asks Italy if it is interested in taking another go toward saving Turkey. Meanwhile, the new president is inaugurated. A film called "Han Bransnoer and the Raiders of the Lost Ark" becomes very popular. It is about Bransnoer attempting to save the ruins of an ancient Incan temple from the hands of sinister Bharati agents during the more edgy part of the Cold War. Once again, all the nations of Europe are invited to join some sort of European co-prosperity pact, perhaps with all members accepting a single currency and perhaps even a full on alliance. This offer is not extended to any nation in civil disarray or in long periods of isolationism. Meanwhile, Voyager 1 nears the heliosheath day by day. The New Horizons shuttles is launched, to take a closer look at Pluto and Eris, and their moons. Meanwhile, three new moons of Pluto are discovered. Another moon of Eris is found, but the news turns out to be a hoax. Lots of people are angered at the bogus announcement and newspaper subscriptions drop sharply. Meanwhile, twelve trains crash after being jacked in the Oslo Metro underneath the Central Terminus, destroying massive parts of the foundation of the building and bringing the separately constructed West Bank Hall crashing into the ground, resulting in 402 deaths. Scandinavia finally agrees to lead a military venture into Bharat to purge it of the continuously attacking Red Claw. Juan Alvarez is astonishingly captured in a Bharati port city and he is shipped off to an unknown location to be trialed and, more importantly, interrogated.
  • President Nina Novotná of Czechoslovakia is re-elected for a third term, making her the longest female elected official in recent history, along with the longest elected President in Czech history. Full High-Definition services are broadcasted OTA on public and major private broadcasters, along with popular premium movie channel, FLIX!, which is the first Czechoslovak cable channel to air HD programming 24/7. Czechoslovak volunteers are sent to Oslo, to help with cleaning up the disaster, and to help save anyone still trapped. The Czechoslovak diplomat to Stockholm (Capital of Scandinavia?), accepts the invitation to join a Pan-European movement, and sees it as a way that Europe will be united as a continent, regardless of race. The Dálnice motorway system completes extension from Brno to Bratislava, with signage being replace on roads from Hungarian standards to Czech standards. (Czechland's maximum speed limit, 130 km/h, compared to Hungary and former Slovakia's 110 km/h.)
  • Copenhagen, not Stockholm. Scandinavia agrees with Czechoslovakia saying that Europe is far too fractured and needs unity.
  • Hungary continues updating its military. Meanwhile, King Ladislaus VII dies leaving no issue, and is succeeded by his brother István, later crowned Stephen VIII. Szent Lörinc annexes Niterö.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth overhauls it industry to produce more green products, bringing it in line with the Environmental Committee's restrictions on carbon use. Orange launches OS X Andromeda. Techsoft launches Doors Eight. Mass Space II is released. All nations in Europe are encouraged to join in some economic and political union with a single currency (hopefully) An offer of alliance is sent to England. Robotics technology is heavily invested by the Renault Group (my version of the Nipponese Ziabatsu) and is expected to have returns in the near future. The Remington Hotel nears 75% construction.
  • New Wales continues to expand green industry.

  • Since Czechoslovakia (as Czechland) was a great ally, it is given to offer to join the Euro Federation by Scandinavia. Meanwhile, the damaged 9999 buildings are rebuilt. Juan Alvarez is executed. A synthetic genome is created. A solar powered plane is invented. They become widespread because lots of people want to go green.
  • The Turkish Government starts allowing all Italians to have Turkish citizenship. Most cities along the Nicaen side of the border have been captured or sacked in the last year. The Turkish Government offers Nicaea an alliance to stop the Rebel Threat, but due to its incredibility, Nicaea declines. The Democrats have spread wide scale propaganda urging some Nicaeans on the Border to rise for their freedom. With the exception of some of the more dependent thinking rebels, which have joined back into Turkey, the Republican faction have made Ankara Government, a government with strong central authority, a government which Turkey recognises. The Extremists have for the most part unified, again with many exceptions (which are being dealt with), and have made the Divine Islamic Caliphate of the Turkish People, which, due to intimidation, the Turkish government has also accepted. The Turkish Government has sent its first satellite into space, so that Turkish TV shows can now run without Cyprian assistance. However, there have been concerns about the ill-preparation of the satellite and the haste to get it into space.

One of the episodes happen to be about a major 9.0 Earthquake near Tōhoku Region.
  • Italy has determined that the chief reason for the breakaways and the new micronationalist movements within Italy was the highly centralized Italian government and its unrecognition of most minority languages and regional cultures. The Italian government thus, in order to re-unify Italy, meets with the representatives of Corsica and Savoy, to work out a more federalist government with a balance between regions and national government, unlike the current fairly unitary and unbalanced system.
  • Istoias works on its economy and infrastructure, raising its standard of living to be the highest in Africa by far (except for the Italian part of Africa, which is about the same).
  • Czechoslovakia advertises what a fully united Europe could bring to the world, upon joining Scandinavia's offer for pan-European prosperity. Lara Fischer finally brings the new Chinese-Czechoslovak co-produced animated series, and newest series of the My Little Pony franchise, which its Czech and Slovak title is Můj malý Pony: Přátelství je magické, (OTL My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic), which becomes a surprise hit not just among older women, but males also, along with making multiple Internet-ilmiö that appear on video sites all over Czechoslovakia, with reports of large fan bases growing outside of the country.

The popularity of the series skyrockets, with multiple parts being released, and the direct sequel to Klyatva Assassinov II is released, Klyatva Assassinov: Bratstvo is released in December, as both of them were meant to be in the same game, but because of deadlines was made into two separate games. The third game in the Ezio trilogy is set to be released in 2011. The Russians work on limiting carbon emissions, and Lada releases the Volt, an efficient electric car capable of being charged from a wall outlet.

2011

The Mormons expand their country to the southern border of Gēlúnbǐyǎ.

The last Chinese territory declares independence from China. They officially allow their country to be absorbed by the more powerful Empire of Dekèsàsī. The Dekèsàsī annex the area in between this new addition and their country.

The black areas of Africa in OTL Angola found the Ganguelan Republic.

The Eskimos have by now absorbed all unclaimed black areas on the north coast of North America.

The South American Democratic Republic absorbs the unclaimed black area it borders to the south, and half of the unclaimed black area it borders to the north.

China granted freedom to their colonies following the establishment of the Republic of China in the early 1900s.

There was a small piece of territory that for some reason is still in China's green instead of the independent vassal green north of Dekesasi.

This is because when China made another vassal, they already had two. Since two was the limit, I had to turn one into a puppet and let the other stay as a vassal - and it still was, until now.

I had the Dekesasi annex both of the small Chinese puppets, and yet the map only incorporated one of them.

Because annexing the direct vassal would be basically declaring war on China.

Both skyscrapers are not expected to finish construction until 2016 and 2014 respectively. Lara Fischer, who has left Můj Malý Pony: Přátelství je Magické, after Season 2, which airs in September of 2011, wishes to go to Turkey to be an Ambassador for Peace, especially since the show appears to be most popular in Turkey at the moment.
  • Italy, Corsica and Savoy reuinite, with the Republic of Italy being disbanded and replaced with the Italian Federation. This gives much greater autonomy to all regions of Italy, allows regions to create subregional languages, and hopefully reduces the influence of Catholicism in the Italian government.
  • Istoias continues to flourish, culturally and economically. The Istoiasians send much aid to less successful African nations, in order to help their continent grow and thrive.

Meanwhile, the Ares 2 is launched with three people onboard, and small people too, and more supplies than other missions. Hopefully they'll land next year. The European Federation is revamped (what else is new) again so that all the Commonwealth nations and Czechoslovakia are made into junior members, with Wales and Brittany as senior members.
  • If you look closely at Russia's posts regarding Mars, we (the European Space programme) is planning to send people to space in a larger version of the Burya Shuttle (larger version of the Buran (with space in there for two LK-type landers and supplies). The system would have them launched into Lunar orbit, where they would attach another Booster rocket in orbit around the moon and slingshot around the moon and use the booster's first stage for extra speed, and second stage for coming back. They are going up in a Shuttle, they don't need to be small and there is space for a small training bike ... if we send four people instead of ten.
  • Neue Brandenburg initiates a new constitution, with no laws passed without a public referendum, and heavy human rights and environmental components.
  • In Russia, the pro-Gay Liberals propose a law to the Octobrist (conservative) government to appease their hardliners. They would re-define marriage as a civil union enacted by a clergy (or equivalent) of registered religious institution, leaving it up to the churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples to decide if they want to marry homosexuals, while allowing the state to give a civil union license to any two consenting adults (having all the rights of a marriage from a religious institution), both ceremonies would be called weddings. This essentially makes all weddings done by a non-religious institution officially called a "civil union", but on all documents it is equally as legal for those couples to call themselves married or wed. The Ares 2 mission is launched, and the Shuttle used for the mission christened Icarus, launches in a great ceremony on November 19th. It is set for lunar orbit, where it would dock with the Energia-2 booster that would launch it to Martian trajectory. It is planned to reach Mars in July 2012. The military also launches the Sikrosky PAK FA, the world's first 5th-generation fighter, and purchases 100 for the air force. So far, five have been delivered. The PAK FA is compatible with current aircraft carriers. The Russian Navy decides to drop the Imperial from His Imperial Majesty's ship, because no other nation uses it or any variation thereof (SEV-Sudna Ego Velichestvo in Russian instead of SEIV, the I being Imperial). The newest Rurik-Class Aircraft carrier HIMS Igor Sikorsky, named in the Memory of the "father of Russian Aviation" is launched this year.

  • New Wales updates infrastructure and legalises gay marriage.
  • Czechoslovakia fully legalizes LGBT marriage, and introduces the Univerzální Práva/Univerzálny Práva (Universial Rights) Act. This makes all discrimination, regardless of race, age, gender or sexual orientation illegal. The first Czechoslovak 3D film is produced in a co-production with Mauritius, Yugoslavia and Turkey, as a quasi-prequel to The Alien called Prometheus. At over 125 Million Krona, it is the most expensive Czechoslovak film ever produced, and is expected to be released worldwide, rather than simply domestically. It is also the first Czechoslovak film to be filmed outside of Europe, being shot in the southern deserts of the Turkish region (for shots of the planet of LV-423). The entire country sees it lowest gas consumption since 1933, with only construction vehicles still being operated in Central Slovakia still using gas, as much of Eastern Europe has switched, or is switching to greener fuels. President Nina Novotná is voted the most popular President in modern Czech history, and unlike most current Presidents, is highly regarded, especially for rebuilding the nation's economy into an inland powerhouse, and for uniting the Czechs and Slovaks into one of the richest countries on the planet. A three-hour documentary is released, called Jednota (Unity in both languages), which describes the history of the country, looking back since the 1400's, and the origins of both countries as Czechland's Bohemia and Slovaks a part of Hungary, the battles they've fought each other, and how both nations would unite in 2005. The movie is released on December 28, 2012, the final Friday in 2012, as the nation looks forward to continue growth into the future ...
  • In Turkey, the Czechoslovak film The Alien called Prometheus is a big hit, and in Turkey alone the cost of production is overrun by all the money it is making, due to Translation. However, it hasn't made as large as an impact on language as My Little Pony. The many Northern Turkish Factions capture many Nicaean arsenals making Nicaea pretty much useless as an ally. This also, however, has made the political structure in Northern Turkey change. Factions are growing larger, the small ones dying out, and it becomes more costly to do war, and therefore it slows. By November, the Nation is left with seven large factions. On November 8, 2012, the Largest of the seven sack Constantinople, completely ravaging the city for the day and night, and leave the city without anything useful. They have also taken many POW back to Northern Turkey and treat them humanely, but also making them do forced labour, developing a semi-trust between them. Turkey continues to send advisors to the Inua. On December 29, 2012, Turkey attacks Northern Turkey, and asks for Italian support.
