Principia Moderni, or "The Beginning of the Modern" in Late Latin, was a map game beginning in the final days of the Middle Ages in Europe, and the early days of the Ming Dynasty in China - in 1420 C. E, a turbulent era; in other words, an era of change; an era in which power is cemented. The first game was perhaps the most successful map game on the wiki in terms of length, finishing without dying and plausible expansions. However, it did have its problems, and has now finished. Thus, this second game has been created. Welcome to Principia Moderni II

All nations without names by them may be taken by new players immediately. Nations with normal names by them may not be taken by new players as they are already established main player nations, and cannot be played without permission or a revolt. Bolded names are international unions, with member states indented below. Tribal Names are Italicized, and areas which are fragmented by being small states are underlined. Nations in civil disarray or collapsing nations have an attached note. If a player's name has an * beside it, it means that nation is a vassal/former colony that a player is controlling but is willing to let someone else play as if asked. Areas which ** are mod-controlled and players must ask permission to play them.

1900

After decades of Ethiopian work in the north of Antillia, the Inuits finally form their own state on the continent, influenced by the Ethiopians. It comes down to the Ethiopians to try to protect, equip and supply them as well as help them build infrastructure and preserve their way of life.

The brief provisional government of the Gang Republic officially recognizes the re-establshment of the Gang royal family as the heads of state of the nation. The new Gang Empire does not turn its back on the laws of the short-lived republican government, and becomes the latest constitutional monarchy in the world. NOTE: I can't be the only one who thinks that the catch-22 of the new Gang Republic supporting the old monarchy but forming a republic is either silly or crazy.

Really. That made not much sense.
What doesn't make sense is why the colonies that were still loyal to the Chinese Empire would establish a republic. What sense is it to basically flip off the same monarchy that the first post of the Gang Republic said they were loyal to? And are you agreeing with me or agreeing with the implausogasm known as the Gang Republic?
LOL. To be honest, the name does break continuity. 
I probably should have caught this earlier. Thanksgiving Break and all. The Gang Republic confusion is due to improper wording on my part. I was in a rush to finish that post. I really should have explained that part more and I apologize. When I said that they were loyal to the Gang Empire, I mean that they were absolutely opposed to the Equalist regime and wanted no part in it, ergo, their departure from Chinese control. The governors already controlling New Manchuria and Baitudu became the leaders of the nation. I'd really like to avoid making these guys an empire. Perhaps a Federation instead?

Meanwhile in Navarra, Urraca Fernandes de Lara gives birth to a girl, who is named Urraca. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 7600 sq km. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Brasil, and some efforts to connect some existing railroads to each other are made. Meanwhile, it expands by 57,400 sq km. Meanwhile, the Post-A'Asabist states under Brasilian or Portuguese influence expand by 5000 sq km each.
  • France's economy improves and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, propaganda aimed to legitimize the current government starts to be spread on France. Meanwhile, the Olympic Games are hosted in Paris.
  • Mutapa builds up its military.
  • The Rokkaku Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation. Empress Go-Shōtoku continues seeing the construction of railways throughout the nation. Shinto shrines, Taoist temples and some Buddhist temples are built throughout the colonies. More funding is put into science and agriculture. More fertiliser is created and used on fields. More air furnaces are also built. Meanwhile, urbanisation continues throughout the nation. More steam power is built, and a few water wheels are built. In the Special Administrative Region of Byakuren, the city of Hata no Kokoro continues being rebuilt along with the Buddhist temple. Industrialisation goes well, especially with the help of the Germans. Shogun Rokkaku Kiyomori continues making reforms for the government, with the aid of Empress Go-Shōtoku. Major cities such as Hakodate, Tokyo, Kyoto, Kōchi, Saga, Kobe, and Osaka continue growing in population and expanding. Daihatsu Company is also founded.
  • The Federal Republic of Tojiko continues to build up its military. Some Jīdūhist and Amaterasuist churches are built. A few Shinto shrines are also built.
  • The Neu Berlin Republic of Kasodani continues to build up its military. Kasodani also expands northward by 9900 sq km. More Shinto shrines and Taoist temples are built. A few Buddhist temples are also built. The city of Kyouko and the town of Ichirin continues to grow thanks to gold.
  • The Republic of Himekaidou continues to build up its military. Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples are built throughout the nation.
  • Imperium Africana and its dominions vote to bring the Inuit people under their wing, and guide and protect their old allies in the region. Heavily influenced by Ethiopian culture, dress, and religion, the Inuit joyfully accept their position within the Imperium, and join as permanent members of the Imperial domain. These new nation is christened Nunavut, or "our land", a fitting name for a people who have had no land of their own following the European colonization of Antilla. With Ethiopian protection, the Inuit begin to develop industries, companies, and a small military of their own, and plans to see them grow as a major contributor witihn the empire begin. Elsewhere, a group of Ethiopian researchers develop the first commercially viable radio, which allows the voices of people to move across the skies and into the homes of Imperial subjects. The first broadcast in Ethiopia is that of the Emperor, who announces the development to his allies in Hindustan, who are being shipped new radios as a gift from their Ethiopian friends, one of the many technological innovations shared between the two countries. The military begins rooting out any Equalists in Imperial lands, especially when many subjects state their annoyance at the pestering of Equalist party members who attempt to persuade Ethiopians to overthrow the monarchy. With memories of the Faceist Civil War still fresh in the minds of Ethiopians, the government moves to stamp out the Equalist menace, and put an end to the nonsense they spout against the Emperor. Propaganda continues to flow into the schools of the empire, teaching children to never forget the crimes commited against their ancestors, and to rise and punish these people once they have come of age and replaced their parents and grandparents as the leaders and soldiers of Ethiopia. The Ethiopification of the empire continues, with the vast majority of the population either Ethiopian by blood, or related to at least a single Ethiopian by marriage or association. The development of the dreadnought fleet continues, and with the development of so many vast and powerful warships, a number of Ethiopian businessmen decide to put the superdocks of Ethiopia to the test, and build the largest sea-faring vessel the world has ever seen. Orders for metal, wood, crew members, luxury goods, furniture, and guns for security, are made to numerous companies throughout the empire. The plan for the ship is to showcase the industrial, technological, and economic might of Ethiopia, drawing from all realms within the empire, and bringing together crew from all edges of the Imperium.

  • Russia holds new elections. The Socialists, for the first time in a long time, do not hold a majority, but rather a 45% minority in the Duma. The Individualist party holds 30% of the seats, while 12% are Mensheviks and 7% are Bolsheviks, while the remaining 5% acting as independents, with no allegiance to a leader. The Socialist Leader, Sviatoslav Bogratiev and Mensevik leader Davidov decide to form a coalition governement, and Bogratiev holds yet another term as premier. Meanwhile, Lavrentiev, the Bolshevik leader, secretly meets with the Chinese and suggests that the next time they meet, they should call and "International Equalist Congress" with Equalists from around the world for a couple of reasons, spread the cause, and to have the meeting be less conspicuous ... he also suggests entering into a customs union with Russia to perhaps better sneak soldiers in to aid in revolution. In any case, Russian military is updated and science is worked on, etc ... a new system of secret ballots is instituted for future elections, with people able to put themselves forward as candidates, and associate themselves with a political faction, now more commonly referred to as "parties". However, if they are not actually part of a party, they can be fined. People are also allowed to write in a name of the person they want to be their rep.
  • Belorussia: works on its economy. The Bolshevik party gains almost 15% of seats, compared to 5% Mensheviks.
  • Ukraina: works on economy, elections held, the Duma's Individualist leader is appointed as Premier as his faction controls 60% of the Duma there, as left wing votes split.
  • Kazakhstan works on economy. Bolshevism and Menshevism clash and this splits the left wing vote to make the Individualists win
  • Baltica works on economy, Socialists take control fo the Parliament, Bolsheviks dominate.
  • Eesti Mensheviks dominate over Bolsheviks, and Independent is chosen as Premier as both Socialists and Individualists have roughly 33% of the seats in the Diet.
  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry, with the entire nation being solidly industrialized. The three major religions solidify their control over the entire country, with significant Russian Orthodox and Germanic minorities. New political parties are officially founded including the Fascist Party, the Liberty Party, the Federalist Party, and the Progressive Party. Unlike in many two-party countries there are looser regulations on the establishment of political parties, which allows for a more subtle political spectrum. The Fascists believe in establishing a stronger national government, the Liberty Party sought to protect the rights of the citizenry, the Federalists believe in a more decentralized form of government, and the Progressives believe in what is essentially a gentler form of Equalism. The non-partisan nature of the Scandinavian government allow many of these new parties to form coalitions at different times to improve the efficiency of the national government. A new elected office is created, the Governor, whose purpose is to help the local reigning noble run the day-to-day affairs of their Province or County. They also serve as a form of regency when the heir is either not of age or non-existant.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): Huge celebrations are held all across the kingdom and the empire to celebrate the new century. Hundred-gun salutes are fired in the Imperial capital of Bamberg, as well as in Dresden, Munich, Berlin, Warsaw, London, Carthage, Fredericksstadt, Boniface, Neu Munchen, Tanimbarkai, Samarinda and Saigon. In January, the Emperor travels from Bamberg to Dresden, Munich, Warsaw and Bratislave, and he makes speeches to the Saxon, Bavarian, Polish and Slovakian parliaments respectively. In February, the Emperor and Empress board the SMY Oldenburg and, along with an escort of several German Naval Ironclads, steam off to visit every commonwealth and colony of the empire. In their absence, the Crown prince, Georg, becomes temporary Regent. The Imperial couple's first destination is Britannia, where they meet with the Scottish Royal Family and other dignitaries. Next up, Carthage, where the Emperor inspects new oilfields and the Empress visits girls schools. In Saxon West Africa, the population of Fredericksstadt is eager to impress the Emperor with their modernity and European-ness. The Imperial couple are suitably impressed. Fredericksstadt's grand public buildings, broad boulevards and nascent tram system all marveled at. The Emperor is taken on a safari into the interior, where he meets the King of Teke and is welcomed in a traditional ceremony. Several dead game animals later, the safari ends. With the year near its end, the Imperials will remain in Fredericksstadt and continue their grand tour next year. In non-tour-related news, the Imperial Navy uses the landmark of the new century to begin a large modernisation of the fleets. Ethiopian-style Dreadnoughts begin being constructed, and the Oldenburg docks are improved to accommodate a bigger and better North Sea Fleet. The Naval Defence Forces of the commonwealths (Britannia, Australis, Carthage, and Borneo) are also improved, to increase their independent capabilities in the absence of an Imperial force in the area. The Navy unveils a new fleet of three airships, to be used for reconnaisance and bombing. In Saxony, the government's costings for the public housing programme are leaked by an unknown source. It is revealed that the initiative is already 10,000,000 marks in the red. The conservative Opposition seize on this, lambasting the Left government for their fiscal irresponsibility. The government responds by saying that the cost blowout is due to faulty treasury estimates caused by the recent volatility in the stock markets. However, the conservatives do not relent their tirade. The revelations are quite damaging to the Left's popularity amongst the middle classes and the debt-averse poor. In an effort to gain more support (and also because it's always been part of their platform) the Equalists within the ruling Left introduces a bill to expand the franchise to allow women above the age of 21 to vote. The move is applauded by many prominent women, but scoffed at by the conservatives. It passes, however, and women have until next year to register to vote. The colonies expand their maximum amounts. In Anhalt, the death toll mounts, and refugees begin spilling into Saxony. 
  • Bayern (Member of the German Empire): (Copy-pasting for Andrew) The state of Bayern builds its military along with all her colonies (Borneo). Borneo expands infrastructure and continues industry. Bavaria continues to experience a baby boom. Cities like Munchen and Bamberg grow as people flock to the cities. Work in the Imperial Capital continues at a breakneck pace. The German Navy is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". The German Navy embraces newer battleship technologies, leaving the small and unwieldy ironclads in the past. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. BMW and Benz continue to grow with better and faster autos being built. BMW develops the European equivalent to the "autobike" the Z71. Scottish rebels are deported in droves to Neu Berlin. The Munchen subways is completed. Electric lights now permeate almost every major city in Germany. German-Neu Berlin relations continue to improve. The Democratic Republicans gain seats in the Reichstag after several scandals involving Equalist Party members, though the election still resulted in the Democratic Socialist Party winning a majority. After many long years, the transatlantic cable from Germany to Neu Berlin is completed. Airships become common. Henry Dezel invents a type of internal combustion engine (OTL Diesel).

English-German relations improve greatly. The military is expanded. electricity and autos become commonplace. Inventor Charles Gramme invents the first Grammephone, an adaptation of an earlier Neu Berlinian design, this time, instead of using a cylinder, a flat shellac disc is used and a tone arm glides over the grooves of the disc, creating sound, which is then amplified by the horn. The statue of German Unity is finished and her sister statue is shipped to Neu Berlin. The opening fair becomes a success with the German Kaiser in attendance with the Neu Berlin leadership. The January riots start as a prominent Scottish leader (who was Jewish) is killed by the anarchist group Angeland, a group dedicated to a "racially pure" Albion. The riots disrupt the nation. Meanwhile in Wales, the Welsh Republican Army, attacks the Cymru Assembly, killng dozens and injuring hundreds. James Woldroff, a Welsh Apostolic Bishop becomes popular among the people, believing he should be the Prime Bishop in the upcoming elections, citing his love for the poor and desire to re-unite former Brythonic lands.
  • Commonwealth of Afrika: Carthage holds elections for the General Assembly with the Social Democrats taking the lead. Carthage is renamed the Commonwealth of Afrika. The military governor steps down for the new elected Prime Minister.

Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begins to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and are slowly adopting electricity. We continue to construct areas for the World's Fair to be held. Because of the possibility of the World's Fair not being held in Rangoon, all our construction will have to have a second use after the World's Fair. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We spend 20% of our countries reserves to industrialize. We ask for people to vote for us in the 1905 World's Fair. To get the Equalist's votes for the World's Fair, we send support to the Chinese and Greek Equalists. We ask for an alliance with Maharayja.
  • The Hellenic Equalist Republic: The HER government continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic Peninsula to spurt the economy on. In Cyprus and Crete, cloth factories and paper mills are built and in the colonies, hospitals and health care continue to be widespread. In Constantinople and the surrounding areas, artillery begins being built and is placed at both the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack.

  • Selk'nam: Industrialization deepens - Prime Minister Elwyn is re-elected, and offers refuge to Jews from both De Mor Tir and Britain. Entreaties continue to be made to the Maharajya, and the Selk'nam offer to buy the territory as a colony rather than purchase its independence if it would be a smoother transition. 
  • Yagich Rafael, Eternal Matter, Attican Union: Industrialization Deepens.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Pamphlets from The Jester circulate with the line, "All Will be Revealed - 11/29/1900". Praetoress Eris, fearing what The Jester Will do, launches a brutal craackdown in hope of finding the Jester's printing operation, and manya are killed or imprisoned, but to no avail. More pamphlets appear in July with the smae message but in a different font and with a date stamp indicating that they are a new printing. Eris waits until the date in November specified in November and blankets the streets with military in the hope of either intimidating the Jester's agents or stopping the flyers at their source. On November 28 just before midnight, crates of flyers are discovered being smuggled out of the hold of a De Mor Tirian trade ship with crew from the Selk'nam lands and the Attican Union. The army is ordered to burn the entire ship, burn the flyers, and imprison the entire crew. There is an immese army operation in the city the next day, with suspected collaborators dragged into the street and shot. The day is long remembered in the history of the Praetorate as "Black Friday". However, one month later, a man with a crate appears in Yagich Gavin's center square and yells "The Jester will have his way!" as he opens a box of flyers. He is immediately shot by the military but the crowd converges on the box of flyers before the military can shoot them all and begin handing them out - several soldiers are attacked and disarmed in the process. The flyers are not flyers at all but copies of a decades-old edition of The Ona Yagich Gazette, reprinted on The Jester's watermarked paper. It is dated near the end of the Icarus regime in the Selk'nam Haruwin and the headline reads "PRINCESS DISAPPEARS AS STRIFE RAGES ON". The story details how Princess Elizabeth Tuch'huelpe'ichin'yagichin'Selk'nam'nam of the House of Tuch'huelpe, daugher of King Atticus' cousin, aged 14 and a training acrobat, has gone missing. It had been rumored that the Princess was involved in Icaran idealism. 
  • The Italian Affiliated UER: continues to put down anti-UER rebellions and continues to rebuild its military and economy in a centralised manner.

  • All states expand military. River Lakota, Ostkasodan and Novomoskovsk expand 30,000 sq km each. Neu Germanica expands 16,000 sq km. More people begin to arrive in Neu Berlin, and a census shows that the population to be 75,631,522 and the ethnicities are 69% Germanic, 4% Italian, 7% Native Antillian, 5% Orisso-Ethiopian, 11% Russian, and 4% Portuguese. Also, a baby boom occurs again, with the standard of living greatly increasing. A faint sense of nationalism begins to bond the different people of the realms. The Weichs continue to improve their planes, with funding from Tesla and Essen. Expanding upon the refrigerator, some poor schmuck invents the air conditioner because he's sick and tired of the the weather. Also, his fellow poor schmuck Pavl Petrovich of Novomoskovsk tries to invent the first helicopter, but it fails. However, he is not discouraged and continues to work on it. Also, Tesla invents ductile tungsten for light bulbs. Herman Kyloeg invents corn flakes because he is tired of the bland morning food he eats.
    • Who are the missing 4%? Are they the Portuguese that you seemingly didn't mention?
    • Oh damn! Yes, that's right.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues and under the Socialists, is endorsed highly. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation with railroad construction continuing all around the nation. The Akashchuts continue to be built at a rapid pace and the city begins to be filled up. Side effects of the land displacement begin to show as water begins to head more into Old Bumbai. As a solution, canals and other things are made which will allow the water to even itself out. Better train engines are being constructed in the prototype stage as the need for faster and more powerful as well as efficient trains evolves. The SOC headquarters hopes their gamble pays off. They begin to set up oil rigs in Dakshin Maharajya under SOC Shell while SOC Rail begins to try to gain contracts to build extensive rail networks in Dakshin Maharajya as well as Uttarshina. So far they are unsuccessful. They work with Japan to implement the Uda Code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code.

Many Jains head to Jainistan and it is expanded by 64,150 km south, but Orissan Aprika does not expand. Another invasion is launched and the United Maharajya is in a well and truly colonial war looking for resources which will help fuel the industrialising nation rapidly. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. Sanjay Rajpath continues the expansion of his business but has begun to get very old. His son, Rajesh Rajpath takes over most of the business and things. The Daily Times continues to sell well and it begins to become bigger on the geopolitical scene as well as the science based news. The telephone begins to be made in greater numbers and sold to more households. Sanjay Rajpath's work on radar has left the nation with a huge (and secret) advantage. The subway becomes a part of everyday life in Delhi. The tram link has been completed in Kolkata and it helps to link up one part of the city to the other part. The small town of Khittagong begins to receive attention as its position allows for better trading access toward the East. The construction of more coal based power stations continue and the electrialisation of all major cities is finished. The Dominion of Uttarshina contines the construction of its new capital. An economic boom begins due to the end of the civil war and the return of peace to the nation once more. The NHS begins to be implemented with each household now registered with the NHS. The three siblings continue their taxing work but have continued to make rapid progress. Their helicopter is almost ready and problems with it will have to be tested to be sorted out. Anticipation grows and they begin to seek backing from a major company. Tata Motors' armoured cars help to scare many of the native populations and the tank is tested in battle for the first time. It is a huge success and it scares the living daylight out of the natives. The war thus continues successfully. The Socialist government begins to implement even more reforms to boost the nation and help its industrial base grow.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Khmers expand their military, economy and infrastructure. The United Maharajya begins to experience growth and as its rail networks are linked up in a better fashion, the flow of goods is made quicker. In schools, Sankala is the main language to be taught which the regional language takes the role of second main language. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance - especially in Atlantia and Aprika. Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km northward, and Kongo continues to vassalise the states close by.

1901

With the link to the Pacific open, the Neu Berliners feel happy. They motivation for rapid expansion is cut and the rates fo expansion return to normal with many new rural stops becoming bigger towns and so much be colonised by the people. This means the nation cannot expand as the land claimed has to be settled first. Campaigns such as "go west" would help ...

This is bullshit. How could I expand without the people in the first place? Everything is full of people. Giant cattle farms and cowboys and ranches and whatnot. The Vild, Vild Vest.
Seriously. Look at the map. Have you not studied the Oregon trail? It will take you quite a while to get people to move in large numbers toward the west. And exactly, the wild west - not heavily occupied and present opportunity for those wanting to move. And anyway, you have reached the Pacific.
America did not stop expanding when it reached the Pacific. It moved south after that (Mexico) via war. I'm expanding north. Peacefully too.
Actually, the Mexican-American War ended around the same time as the USA got Oregon.
Indeed. Plus, you have Italia, Ethiopia, China, and the Maya in the region who are also interested in the lands around you. We aren't raggedy Mexico. ~Viva
Mexico wasn't all that raggedy either. Besides, since I'm being re-confined to the same rates as everyone else, it's all fair now.

Seeing the need for more space due to the fact that millions of refugees are heading into the Gang Empire, expansion becomes a priority. Their expansion rate is tripled for now until the refugees can be settled and new farmable lands are made available to the Gang Empire to settle and feed its people. The army is mobilised and used for the expansion (note: look to expand in areas of farmland, not in the cold north).

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Majorca, Barcelona, Castille, Navarra and Granada prepare their militaries and industrialization continues.

More steam power is built, and a few water wheels are built. In the Special Administrative Region of Byakuren, the city of Hata no Kokoro continues being rebuilt along with the Buddhist temple. Industrialisation goes well, especially with the help of the Germans. Shogun Rokkaku Kiyomori continues making reforms for the government, with the aid of Empress Go-Shōtoku. Japan is becoming more of a democracy by now, and the feudal military dictatorship will officially end in 1903. Shogun Rokkaku Kiyomori also gives women the right to vote. Major cities such as Hakodate, Tokyo, Kyoto, Kōchi, Saga, Kobe, and Osaka continue growing in population and expanding. Daihatsu Company begins making Japan's first Kuruma (Japanese for car).
    • Split of Kochiya (PMII)

      The light blue area is the part of Kochiya that Japan would sell.

      Neu Berlin asks to buy the colony of Kochiya (Alaska).
    • Empress Go-Shōtoku partially agrees, but would like to keep the Islands part of it. She also requests, if its okay, that the mainland portion could be merged into the state of Kasodani.
    • Neu Berlin is willing to accept that land but wishes for it to be merged into Neu Germanica.
    • Empress Go-Shōtoku will sell on the condition that any Japanese there continues to live their way of life.
    • Naturally.
  • The Federal Republic of Tojiko continues to build up its military. Some Jīdūhist and Amaterasuist churches are built. A few Shinto shrines are also built.
  • The Neu Berlin Republic of Kasodani continues to build up its military. Kasodani also expands northward by 9900 sq km. More Shinto shrines and Taoist temples are built. A few Buddhist temples are also built. The city of Kyouko and the town of Ichirin continues to grow thanks to gold. A regional census is held and it shows that Kasodani contains 92% Japanese, 4% Chinese, and 4% German.
  • The Republic of Himekaidou continues to build up its military. Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples are built throughout the nation.
  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry, with the entire nation being solidly industrialized. The three major religions solidify their control over the entire country, with significant Russian Orthodox and Germanic minorities.
  • Bayern (Member of the German Empire) The state of Bayern builds its military along with all her colonies (Borneo). Borneo expands infrastructure and continues industry. Bavaria continues to experience a baby boom. Cities like Munchen and Bamberg grow as people flock to the cities. Work in the Imperial Capital continues at a breakneck pace. The German Navy is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". The German Navy embraces newer battleship technologies, leaving the small and unwieldy ironclads in the past. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. BMW and Benz continue to grow with better and faster autos being built. BMW develops the European equivalent to the "autobike" the Z71. Scottish rebels are deported in droves to Neu Berlin. The Munchen subways is completed. Electric lights now permeate almost every major city in Germany. German-Neu Berlin relations continue to improve. The Democratic Republicans gain seats in the Reichstag after several scandals involving Equalist Party members, though the election still resulted in the Democratic Socialist Party winning a majority. After many long years, the transatlantic cable from Germany to Neu Berlin is completed. Airships become common. Henry Dezel invents a type of internal combustion engine (OTL Diesel). The anti-Equalist Caucus is fmed after a bunch of scandals associated with the socialists take off, resulting fit he first time in almost twenty years that a non socialist affiliated party, the Conservative Party, wins the elections. BMW develops a new aeroplane called the BMW-Messerschmitt Z 21, a biplane with dual machine guns and the world's fastest '''' engine to date (of course, it is just a marketing term.) Germany offers to sell to allies.
    • ​That's good and all, but aren't orange nations (such as Germany and Russia) NOT supposed to have functional airplanes, etc ... until 1905?
    • Considering Neu Berlin is orange and invented the airplane, I assume I'm good ( I'm not that far off timewise)
    • Indeed. Also, there's a difference between good planes what anyone has right now. What anyone has right now is a plane that can fly a decent distance at a decent height. Nothing epic ... yet ...
    • The whole fastest thing is just a marketing ploy. It is the fastest in Europe, as we are the only European nation building them ATM.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black (45,000 sq km) as more and more settlers arrive in the nation. The nation continues to make money from its jewelry exports, which are some of the best in the world. The Australian navy is upgraded. The military expands. Commonwealth Electric expands. The Broomeswalt building is completed and stands as the world's tallest building. The Neu Munchen subway is finished. Airstrips become commonplace. James Cordar invents cordite, a smokeless gunpowder. Australis asks allies to support the Australian bid for the Olympics, if successful it will be the first Games held in Oceana.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Britannia: English and Scottish rebels continue to be peacefully deported and a surge of German immigrants arrive, particularly in Scotland. In England, Saxonische, the German-English hybrid now makes up 20% of the native speakers. Bavaria sends more and more Bavarian soldiers and citizens to England. English-German relations improve greatly. The military is expanded. electricity and autos become commonplace. Inventor Charles Gramme invents the first Grammephone, an adaptation of an earlier Neu Berlinian design. This time, instead of using a cylinder, a flat shellac disc is used and a tone arm glides over the grooves of the disc, creating sound, which is then amplified by the horn. The statue of German Unity is finished and her sister statue is shipped to Neu Berlin. The opening fair becomes a success with the German Kaiser in attendance with the Neu Berlin leadership. James Woldroff, a Welsh Apostolic Bishop becomes popular among the people, believing he should be the Prime Bishop in the upcoming elections, citing his love for the poor and desire to re-unite former Brythonic lands. The dawn if the 20th century is looked on with hope.
  • Commonwealth of Afrika: Carthage holds elections for the General Assembly with the Social Democrats taking the lead. Carthage is renamed the Commonwealth of Afrika. The military governor steps down for the new elected Prime Minister. Work on telegraph and telephone lines continue in the Bavarian Adminstrative Region. Afrika Telephone and Telegraph is founded. Work continues on the railways and telegraph in the Saxon Administrative Region. Local militia units are raised to defend the region from desert nomad rebels in the Sahara to the south.

Stefan Moldruf patents the motor driven vacuum cleaner.
  • The Hellenic Equalist Republic: The HER government continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic Peninsula to spurt the economy on. In Cyprus and Crete, cloth factories and paper mills are built and in the colonies, hospitals and health care continue to be widespread. In Constantinople and the surrounding areas, artillery begins being built and is placed at both the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack. The HER continues to expand both its economy and its military and its colonies are expanded. Artillery becomes more widespread and is used to protect the Union. 
  • The Egyptian Equalist Republic: continues to expand its army and navy, as well as its economy. It expands by 40,000 sq km.

  • The Italian Affiliated UER: continues to put down anti-UER rebellions and continues to rebuild its military and economy in a centralised manner.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The Imperial couple continue their World Tour, steaming to theie domains in South East Asia. The couple is greeted by the King of Tanimbarkai, who shows the Emperor the wonders that German protection have done for the country: the modern military, the school system, the German-trained doctors and the steamboat connexions between the islands. Old islanders thank the Emperor, with tears in their eyes, for allowing them to have a proper education and a happy life. The Emperor is understandably touched. After a few weeks travelling the islands, the entourage moves on to Borneo, where all present marvel at the modern industrial giant which ha seemingly sprung out of featureless rainforest. The Emperor moves on for a brief visit to Khmer Koch, where nothing in particular happens, as is the norm for the sleepy Asian colony. The Emperor was even heard to ask a senior staffer "Why do we own this boring place?" Glad to be out of Time Magazine's Most Boring Colony of the Century, the Imperial train moves on to its final destination: the two Australian territories. The ships pull into the large and majestic Boniface harbour and are greeted by thousands gathered along the shoreline. Journalists attached to the tour said that they could almost see a tear in the old Emperor's eyes as he looked at all the happy white and brown faces, people who have lived their entire lives on the other side of the globe, all of whom cheering to show their admration and respect for a man they have never seen. The Imperial couple celebrate Mass in the original chapel built by the first missionaries of the Holy Wettin Order centuries ago. The mass is presided over by an Aboriginal man, who is the Bishop of Boniface. After the mass, the Emperor parades down the main street of Boniface in an open-topped auto. Basically the entire colony is there to catch an glimpse of their glorious sovereign. The calvacade stops at the new, golden pillar-mounted statue of Kaiser Erdbert erected recently in his honour. After tasting the delights of Saxon Australis, the Imperials hop on the train for the Commonwealth of Australis. They stay there for a few months in the Broomewalt building before returning home just in time for Christmas. Anyway, back in Saxony, the Public Housing Debt Scandal results in the Left losing their outright majority in the Landtag elections. They have to form a temporary alliance with the Agriculturalists in order to maintain government. The Conservatives, who won more seats than the Left but not enough to form a government, are not very peased at being out-negotiated, and make lots of noise about the government "not having a mandate" to contnue implementing the Public housing scheme. The government doesn't give a toss about its supposed lack of mandate, and continues the scheme, which is coming along well axcept for the budget blowout. Industry and the sharemarket actually improve, which the Left says is due to workers having better living conditions in the new public housing, the Conservatives say it's because they won more seats in the election. The Sacisische Luftschiffbau expands bigtime, building airfields all over Saxony and even in Saxon Australis (for flights within Australis, I'm not talking about intercontinental flights). In Anhalt, the URFA takes strategic towns from the Regency's forces. The Regency sends out a declaration to anti-Equalist counties asking for small amounts of aid to help the Equalist and Anarchist insurgents.
  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity begins replacing steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. Equalism thought reaches Rangoon and begins to influence governmental decisions. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and are slowly adopting electricity. We continue to construct areas for the World's Fair to be held. Because of the possibility of the World's Fair not being held in Rangoon, all our construction will be able to have a second use after the World's Fair. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We spend 20% of our countries reserves to industrialize. We ask for people to vote for us in the 1905 World's Fair. To get the Equalist's votes for the World's Fair, we send support to the Chinese and Greek Equalists. We ask for an alliance with Maharayja.
  • Chaudism continues to spread throughout Imperium Africana as the new primary religion of the people. With the conversion of the Emperor of Ethiopia, Chaudism receives the full backing of the empire as a major religion of the state. Ethiopia continues to build its massive dreadnoughts, leading the rest of the world with its big-gun fleet, and fields the most dreadnoughts in the world. Numerous models are built for Orissa as gifts, and to issue that their ally is fully equipped in the event of a major conflict. The development of the massive passenger liner continues, with a photo taken of one of the chief investors of the project with massive iron chains behind him, showing both the size of the ship that is being constructed, as well as the industrial capacity of Ethiopia. Thousands of Ethiopians purchase tickets for the ship seeking to be the first ones onboard, and make history. Propaganda continues to spread in the schools of the Imperium, with thousands of children openly making remarks about how they want to crusade against the "bad men" of the world, and take their ancestors' lands back. Numerous parents speak joyfully of their success in raising their children, and seek to watch them grow into fine models for the next generation. Radio towers begin to rise throughout the empire as the radio takes over communication networks in Ethiopia. A major radio broadcast center is built in Addis Ababa, and plans to create a series of radio units in the military are underway. Not only will this grant the Imperium yet another boost in the military area, but will grant the nation the power to command large armies without the need for dangerous courier units who must physically send messages between to army units. The radio has thus revolutionized the way wars will be fought forever. Another major development in the military is the armored car. A group of Ethiopian officers during the Faceist Civil War came up with an idea to put pieces of metal around an automobile, and a gun on top, protecting the men inside from bullets, while at the same time allowing them to bring heavy firepower into the thick of a battle. The men receive promotions for their models, and the military places an order for a three hundred armored cars, as well as another hundred to be shipped to Orissa for testing and evaluation.
    • Thousand is way too much Viva, even I only have around a 100, maybe 200 at max ~Imp

  • All states expand mililtary. The connection between the center and the coasts becomes greater and more people move into the River Lakota area with the prospect of land and money. As such, River Lakota expands 15,000 sq km. Ostkasodan also expands 15,000 sq km to create another route for railways to go through. Neu Berlin begins to influence the Plains Lakota. Neu Germanica expands 16,000 sq km. Weich brothers continue to do stuff. Some genius at the Neu Berlin Embassy in Beijing comes up with his own idea for a tank, or moving fortress, as he plainly calls it. He sends these back to Neu Berlin where the government and the military take interest in them. They are dubbed fortwagens by someone who was too lazy to say fortress wagon all the time.
    • You are not allowed to expand, except from your colony, if Neu Germanica is your colony. If not, then that will not expand either.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues and under the Socialists, is endorsed highly. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation with railroad construction continuing all around the nation. The Akashchuts continue to be built at a rapid pace and the city begins to be filled up. Most of the land displacement porblems have been sorted out. Better train engines are being constructed in the prototype stage as the need for faster and more powerful as well as efficient trains evolves. The SOC big bosses continue to work under huge stress as results do not show yet. They begin to set up oil rigs in Dakshin Maharajya under SOC Shell. Many are drilling for oil and hoping to to strike the "black gold". SOC Rail continues to try gaining contracts to build extensive rail networks in Dakshin Maharajya and Uttarshina. In Dakshin Maharajya, the regional government allows them to build a small number of railroads to connect up many of the towns and hamlets the SOC Shell have begun to drill in. Profits currently are zero. The UM works with Japan to implement the Uda Code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. The Maha-Agni Class continues construction and three more is launched. With the gifts from the Ethiopian Navy, the United Maharajyan navy now becomes the strongest on the planet, overtaking their allies in the process. Although this does not matter much due to the fact that both nations train and work closely anyway. Asabists continue to gain respect in Patagoshina and they begin to become part of Patagoshinan society once more. Afghani cities continue growth and work on keeping its army in shape. A new version of the Gatling gun enters the prototype stage and this will improve significantly over the older versions. Many Jains head to Jainistan and it is expanded by 64,150 km, but Orissan Aprika does not expand. Another invasion is launched and the United Maharajya is in a well and truly colonial war looking for resources which will help fuel the industrialising nation rapidly. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. Sanjay Rajpath is now able to just focus on his inventions rather than having to run a business. Rajesh helps his father in the inventing scene, but he is more busy running the company. The Daily Times continues to sell well and it begins to become bigger on the geopolitical scene as well as the science based news. The telephone begins to be made in greater numbers and sold to more households. The radar begins to be worked on more by Sanjay who is trying to make the technology more viable. In the capital of Bhubaneswar, construction of a subway begins too, along with the development of trams on the surface. A major palace renovation campaign is begun by the Maharaja who will partially open up some of his palaces to people wanting to "tour" them. The small town of Khittagong begins to experience significant growth as it becomes another opening and an untapped one compared to Kolkata. The construction of more coal based power stations continue and the electrialisation of all major cities is finished. The Dominion of Uttarshina continues the construction of its new capital. In various broken and torn regions in the south, a huge reconstruction plan is enacted to help rebuild much of the damaged infrastructure. The NHS is made into a greater force with doctors beginning to be employed and helping people. The three siblings continue their taxing work but have continued to make rapid progress. Their helicopter is tested for the first time and although it has control problems, it is a complete success. The Kapoor siblings are overjoyed and celebrate. Rajesh becomes interested in their work and quickly offers them funding to continue their work. The siblings are now able to create small factories to construct aircraft, airships and now helicopters. They fly their first proper biplane and it is a success. They follow this up with the triplane and it can be seen it generates slightly more lift. Tata Motors' armoured cars help to scare many of the native populations and the tank is tested in battle for the first time. It is a huge success and it scares the living daylight out of the natives. The war thus continues successfully. The Socialist government begins to implement even more reforms to boost the nation and help its industrial base grow.

Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km northward, and Kongo continues to vassalise the states close by.

1902

The small Ethiopian dominion of Dähnnät unites with the Faceist Union of Patagoshina, breaking links with the rest of the Imperium. They quickly begin to look to build railroutes connecting the new regions with the rest of the nation.

In the Far East, the Ethiopian colony of Baidu is declared a failure due to its cold conditions and as a result, it is offered to be sold to Japan for a good price. Many are looking to stay but most just want to return home to the sunny lands of Ethiopia.

  • Shogun Rokkaku Kiyomori would like to purchase the area for 100,000,000 Yen.
  • The Company agrees and the land is sold.

After multiple sessions in parliament and after many heated debates, the Gang Empire votes to re-form itself once more. After a close vote in the parliament, the reformists win - who surprisingly have the backing of the Royal Family, and the Gang Empire is dissolved and in its place the Gang Federation is born. Not much changes, apart from the representation type - with the nation continuing to be a constitutional monarchy. The nation continues to expand as more refugees continue to head into the nation.

    • The governments of Uttarshina and the United Maharajya enquire on constructing the twin canal projects of Nicaragua and Panama (or whatever their ATL names are). They are willing to be co-partners and spend half on the project.
      • ​Just refer to them by the names of the provinces - Nicaragua is Mangue, and Panama is Boruca
    • The Mayan Empire agrees to the projects
  • Selk'nam: Industrialization deepens. Entreaties continue to be made to the Maharajya, and the Selk'nam offer to buy the territory of New Judea as a colony - hoping to later integrate it into the Haruwin. Spies are sent to the Praetorate of Pure Science to determine whether Praetoress Eris is secretly a dissillusioned member of the Selk'nam Royal Family. 
  • Yagich Rafael, Eternal Matter, Attican Union: Industrialization deepens.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: The Jester has gone strangely silent since the events of "Black Friday", although his mission may have been accomplished in that most in the Praetorate suspect that Eris' true identity is that of Princess Elizabeth of the House of Tuch'huelpe. Some speculate that the Jester himself may have been captured or killed, especially as thecrew of the De Mor Tirian vessel whch delivered teh flyers had remained in prison. Eris refuses to respond to "the musings of a cowardly clown", which only stokes the rumors. Crackdowns become more brutal as the nation becomes a veritable police state. It is unknown if Eris plans to take action as pro-Jester sentiment continues to simmer, and government rhatoric increasingly centers on "The Selk'nam rolaylist menace, the decadence of the Attican Union, and the intollerable royalist developments in De Mor Tir , a den of villianous Welshmen who have no place in Atlantia!" For the most part, the government pretends as if things are normal, but it is rumored that the islands' explosives and quicklime factories are working overtime to produce a stock pile. Then in December, an Attican Union-flagged trade ship, carrying De Mor Tirian exports stops in the Praetorate to drop of building materials, then sails one to its final destination in Wales. As it docks at Cardiff Harbor, the entire ship explodes in a massive ball of flame.
    •  Note: If someone wants to help, I'm looking for a creative way to wrap up Eris' storyline and would prefer her to go down in some sort of international conflagration in which her identity plays a role. Not sure how to do it, though. :-)

Theodor Roosenfeld, who was elected Prime Minister of the United Antillian Reich in 1900, promises to make Neu Berlin greater and grander than it ever was. One of his first actions is to promote the breaking of large monopolies like Standard Oil and Carnegie Steel. He also nationalizes the big railway systems like Vanderbilt Rail and divides them into four smaller railways: the Oriental and Kasodan Railway (OKb), the Central and Lakota Railway (MLb), the Eastern and Kanadian Railway (OKb), and the Northern and Vinlandic Railway (NVb). This is hailed as a milestone in the breaking of monopolies. He also promotes better working conditions in factories and on boats and whatnot. He leads the Reichstag into passing new reforms for the brutalized working class and promises a "Square Deal" for every man in the Reich. He also promotes laws against gender-based discrimination in the workforce, but the Reichstag does not catch on to this. (Women already have the vote, though.) The Mazda Motor Company is founded in Kasodani, one of three current automobile companies based in the west.

Otherwise more fire will rain on Europe".
    • The Commonwealth expresses outrage at the cowardly attack by the terrorists.

This is especially so when they hear of the attempts of the Germans trying to build their own. A debate is held in the city of Massawa if the Ethiopians should offer to help their German counterparts, or sit back and watch as they try to build their own big-gun warships. An Ethiopian farmer and his cousin develop the first aeroplane, which takes off in the highlands of central Ethiopia proper. Their accomplishment, yet one of many, is quickly noticed by the military, who observes the flight which lasts for half an hour, and is the first successful attempt by man to fly like the birds of the sky. The government immediately seeks ways to militarize the vehicle, and the cousins are commissioned to develop new aeroplanes for the empire. The development of the radio continues, with "newscasters" becoming a new career choice, for men and women seeking to have their voices heard over the radio, to deliver infomation to the masses of their nation.

Apart from the budget blowout, it is a success and greatly appreciated by the hundreds of thousands who were taken out of their slums and out into the new, modern houses. The Landtag rules that further public housing schemes are the responsibility of local councils. With the budget under considerably less pressure, the military is focussed on. Five more naval airships are built, four of them being shipped (piece by piece) to Saxon Australis to join the Australis squadron. The army also gets a few more, smaller airships for reconnaisance.

  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Prime Minister Elwyn Continues to deepen industrialization. Investigators are dent to the Attican Union to help clear the Union of complicity in the explosion in Cardiff. It is noted that all of the King's daughters are unmarried and  in their late twenties, and the King asks if they might be sent to Germany for a time to mingle with the Aristocracy (German Response). While the King is still of a young age, some begin to question the succession, given that the 23 year-old Prince Amador, the king's only male heir, is clearly not capable of assuming the throne (he has Downs Syndrome).  The more progressive factions in the country would prefer tha the law be changed to allow Amador's elder sister Princess Matthea to assume the throne, while many politicians support Amador in hope that his succession will reduce the influence of the monarchy in government. Still others, mostly nationalist conservatives, support the nearest male cousin of the House of Tuch'huelpe - Prince John Tuch'heulpe'Yagichin'ham'iSelknam'iOnaYagichin'i'Chongat, who would continue the male line and "make the monarchy more Atlantian" as Prince John is 15/16ths pure-blooded Selk'nam, whereas King Maughold is less than one eighth Selk'nam and his heirs are less  than one sixteenth Selk'nam (Other nations are asked to back a faction in this dispute). However, many worry about John, as many suspect that his disappeared sister Elizabeth is rumored to have become the brutal Praetoress Eris of the Praetorate of Pure Science. John insists that his sister is likely dead. The Selk'nam offer again to buy New Judea given the growing population of Jewish refugees entering from De Mor Tir (Maharajya, respond). 
    • German Diplomacy: HIH the Imperial Regent Georg (Prince Imperial of Germany, Crown prince of Saxony and Bavaria, etc), on behalf of his ailing father, welcomes the young Selk'nam Princesses to Germany wholeheartedly. It should be noted that the prince Imperial himself is approaching middle-age, is married, and has a daughter, Adelaide, who will one day be empress. He does, however, have many nephews who are eligible bachelors, and who hold high positions of nobility and in the military and foreign service. 
  • Yagich Rafael: Queen Scholastica, having forcibly removed her enemy Prime Minister Andrew several years back,  continues deepening industrialization and re-centralizing banking with the help of her new Prime Minster, Martin  Ḉhȫn'ệ'ruᶀ Ṋẳᶌ. Prime Minister Martin was once a trusted associate of Andrew but has become close with the aristocracy. Ships are sent to the Attican Union in the event an operation is mounted against the Praetorate;
  • Praetorate of Eternal Matter: Industrialization deepens. Praetor Pythagoras disavows any knowleged of bombbing in Wales and condemns the action. However, some radicals in his government support the terrorist actions and demand that the government play a larger role in supporting the spread of Pure Science. 
  • Attican Union: Prime Minister Ludwig devotes all resources to the investigation of the Welsh bombing and begins seeking help for an attack on the Praetorate. This is met with much opposition in Parliament, as the second largest party is the Pacifist Party which opposes all militarism in the hope of prromoting peace. Neither Ludwig and his Christian Attican Party nor his pacifist foe, William "Willie" Tdna'rbi'i'i'i, control a majority in Parliament, so the future of the government and the war rests with the small Attican Socialist Party, which controls the balance of power and is undecided on it's response as many of it's members are suspected Equalists or Pure Scientists.
  • Praetorate of Pure Science: Riots erupt in the streets as new of the Welsh bombing spreads - although Eris does not formally take responsibility. The rioters are violently put down by the police and many are shot. Then, after several years of silence, pamphlets printed on the Jester's special paper begin circulating on the streets, saying "Go home, Princess Elizabeth!" and "Royal or Praetoress". Then finally, one with two pictures, one of Elizabeth and one of a young Eris - which look identical - captioned "Do you deny it, Princess?" More riots erupt, and are again put down. Eris calls a public meeting in the town square and risks her life by speaking from the balcony of her offices. She appears with a copy of a flyer and yells, "I suppose we all have seen these by now?! The clown with no name deserves no answer, but the people shall have one. For years I have called myself Eris, goddess of discord, in the knowledge that the people needed a nameless symbol of the greatness of Pure Science - and knowing that my true identity could hurt the cause. Today, however, you may know that I was born with the name Elizabeth Tuch'huelpe'ichin'yagichin'Selk'nam'nam, which in the polluted tradition of the so-called Haruwin entitled me to use the filthy European title "Princess" by viture of my sad relation to Euro-blooded pretenders who call themselves Royals. I am of the House of Tuch'huelpe and descended from Chongat Yagich - great chiefs and great Atlantians who saw their blood polluted by a desire to be accepted by Europeans. Now their descendants are not Selk'nam at all and instead of great chiefs they are false kings dressing up in European finery in hopes to purge their Atlantian-ness. I reject this blight against House Tuch'huelpe! Icarus and Athena knew this, and I followed them new great chiefs, purged myself of royalism, and became a nameless bombmaker for a larger cause - a more fitting use for education than debutante balls! Now we will rain fire on those who pollute the memory of Tuch'heulpe and claim our Atlantian destiny - free of the Welsh and the rest of them FOREVER!" A month later, a ship docking in Lisboa, Portugal explodes - the bomb being twice as large as the Cardiff bomb - and filled with chlorine gas.

In schools, Sankala is the main language to be taught which the regional language takes the role of second main language. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance - especially in Atlantia and Aprika. Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km northward, and Kongo continues to vassalise the states close by.

Due to the rapid pace of Ethiopian conquests, they have overlooked the fact that the locals now possess the same technology the Ethiopians do. Many tribes begin to launch guerrilla attacks against Ethiopian forces in Dafur as they feel they deserve an independent state and they should not live under Ethiopian yoke. This means Ethiopia or its associates cannot expand in Africa for the next ten years as they will need to look to stop any insurgent activities.

  • No! Ethiopian subjects have managed to train large apes to attack their Ethiopian overlords! Would these "gorillas" perhaps be conducting guerrilla warfare? Callumthered (talk) 22:05, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
  • No it says they are "launching gorilla attacks".  I assume this means that, rather than training the gorillas, they are loading them into giant catapults and firing them at the Ethiopians. ;-) Commandante Lemming (talk) 22:13, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
  • Also the Ethiopians must be employing some form of egg-based torture if people are tired of "living under the Ethiopian yolk". (rather than under their yoke). Commandante Lemming (talk) 22:17, December 3, 2013 (UTC)
  • Just fix the spelling mistakes instead of making stupid puns based on said spelling mistakes.

In Antillia, the Ethiopians begin to feel the effects of the cold and cannot maintain such a rapid speed of expansion. They need to build more roads and railroads for the region to be able to transport more troops and settlers into the region. Therefore expansion for the Ethiopian dominion is not possible. For the Inuit state, the maximum expansion is 10,000 km. The Ethiopians face the same problem in Ethiopia but they can use their colonial expansion rates to continue expanding.

Due to major economic turmoil and immense hardship, the remains of the former French colony joins the Federation of China (Gang Federation).

Meanwhile in Portugal, after the Pure Sciencist attack in Lisboa, the Emperor wishes to declare war immediately, but he has to wait until the Cortes approve his decision, but they take too long to deliberate this. A decision is only reached after Britannia declares war on the Preorate, and only then Portugal declares war. After that, France and Brasil join the war, sending some military forces, and the rest of the Spanish nations also enter the war, but sending only supplies. Meanwhile, the anti-Equalists in the Cortes start to take a more radical approach. Meanwhile, Portugal makes an offer to sell part of Sofala's territory to Orissa in return for equivalent territory in the Brasilian borders.

While many from outside the capital resent his background as an Ona Yagich noble, his military experience makes him a good candidate. Parliament passes an act authorizing Eostatewos to join any international military action against the Praetorate of Pure Science. Princesses Matthea, Ælfgifu, and Pharaildis embark on a social tour of Germany - which conveniently keeps them away from any potential military reaction by the Praetorate of Pure Science. King Maughold and Princess Eleuia remain popular.

Coalition negotiations are paralysed, forcing Ludwig to lead a caretaker government. However, after much deliberation, the Socialists decide to vote in favor of an attack on the Praetorate led by Ludwig as caretaker - while not ruling out supporting a Pacifist-led coalition after any war.

1906

Equalists throughout the Imperium Africana, taking advantage of the nascent Dafuri independence movement. They point out the slow extermination of native cultures by Ethiopians, stating that the people of the Imperium were "only free to be Ethiopian". The secret funding of these Equalist rebels from the UEF and Equalist China result in the Ethiopians fighting a war for the very survival of their nation, or at least their form of government. Pamphlets detailing the slow destruction of native cultures inflame the opinions of many, as the official government line was heavily romanticized.

Yank, please explain to me how this works? Ethiopia and its dominions were perfectly happy one moment, and the next they decide that "You know what, let's rebel for no apparent reason". Darfur has been Ethiopian for two centuries, and the rest of the dominions are Ethiopian through and through. Unless you can come up with a highly plausible reason as to their dissatisfaction with the government, there's no way they'd want to return to their "old" nation (since they have but one, Ethiopia). This is truly dumber than the US wanting to rejoin Britain. ~Viva
I have come to realize that you have been essentially slowly strangling the other cultures to death. Plus this was just building on what was written last turn.
What other cultures? I got rid of them all. No Muslims. No Somalians. No Nigerians. Just Ethiopians. You came late to the party and lost. If you paid attention, most of the population is Ethiopian. Plus, what I did isn't new. History proves that. I believe it is within my ATL rights to remove OTL cultures. And Imp was trying to slow me down with an implausible event. The rebels had no reason to do what they did since they had no motive. Americans don't revolt just to revolt, nor do the Swedes, Chinese or Japanese. For one who complains about how implausible I am, you certainly lacked plausibility with this event. ~Viva
I changed it to being Equalists. And you still destroyed multiple cultures and religions in your homogenization campaign. Destroying cultures is wrong no matter how nicely you do it. It's ironic that an ATL African nation did more to destroy ethnic diversity than any European colonial power in OTL. The bloodless way it happened excuses nothing.
Sounds more like a personal view than anything else. There is no rule against  destroying entire cultures, yet you penalize me for it. Seems more like you're mad that I homogenized my nations by getting rid of everyone else than any legitimate purpose. Sounds like mod abuse to me. Though, that's an entirely personal opinion. Don't take it seriously. ~Viva
Viva, I think the problem was in your last post you did nothing to address the issue. If you can address it now and work on it, things should stabilise in their own time. Although the people will need to be convinced and a lot of work with the people will have to be done.

  • Throughout Imperium Africana, the citizens of the empire rise up to crush their rebellious brethren. After fighting one war against faceists, the rest of the Ethiopian population has no desire to deal with yet another band of extremists. The Ethiopian commanders who grew lazy from decades of peace are replaced with more hardened commanders, who move quickly to decimate the rebel armies. Thankfully, due to the lack of support they received, mostly from the lack of duress upon the nation and the prosperity over the centuries, the rebels lack the manpower to stand up to the much larger and bigger equipped forces of the Emperor, who has returned to the heartland on short notice to direct his troops in battle. The development of the dreadnought fleet comes in handy, as they are deployed to strangle the Equalist supply lines overseas, who are receiving donated equipment and uniforms that are coming from their allies in Europe. Most Ethiopians, often satisified with the government, are at a loss so as to explain the odd decision by the rebels are betray their Emperor. The Emperor himself is disappointed by their actions, wondering what he did wrong, and why the few dominions "rebelling", have done so when they were pleased to have him in their nations. The population rebuffs the Equalists pamphlets as nothing more than nostalgic hatred, and state their contentment with the current state of affairs, pleased with the lack of enemies in their lands due to the long history of minorities attacking their nations. Other dominions step in to send troops to put down the rebellions, especially those in their own territories. Many Ethiopians suspect that the rebels may originate from the small minority communities in the countrysides of their lands, and troops move to punish them for their insolence. Given the fact that most soldiers were from minority groups, the governments of the dominions find it easier to recruit Ethiopian soldiers who were once too at ease with their lot in life to join the military. With the rebellion, the Ethiopian population rallies behind the government, and unites against the minority populations. Ethiopian men and women line up in droves seeking to enlist in the military and the dominion militias, and move to counter the Equalist forces. Tens of millions of Ethiopians unite behind the rallying cry "God Save the Emperor", and march out to the battlefield for their empire. Led by some of the greatest Ethiopian generals of this generation, the beginning of the Equalist War in Ethiopia begins.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): Saxony continues to give materiel support to Britannia in its war against the evil terrorist Praetoriate.

In Saxon Australis, Sachsische Luftschiffbau becomes quite popular, and even begins considering a connexion to Tanimbarkai. Tanimbarkai expands industrially. The rich Saxon humanitarians from last year band together more doctors and nurses to assist the wounded in Anhalt. They decide to call their group the "Green Cross" and ask their friends in other countries to set up branches to give humanitarian aid.
  • Anhalt (Vassal of Saxony: In a state of civil war): Actually, not much happens in Ahnalt this year. Both the Regency's and the URFA's forces are exhausted, and there's a general lull in large-scale conflict.

Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation with railroad construction continuing all around the nation. The Akashchuts continue to be built at a rapid pace and the city sees its Central Districts completely oppupied by skyscrapers. Better train engines are finally in the testing stage as some of the fastest train engines from coal are derived. The first diesel train engines begin to be worked on to see if they can provide more of a punch. The SOC big bosses begin to come under less workload and begin to relax more. More rigs are set up in Dakshin Maharajya under SOC Shell. Rigs continue to pump out the oil and it begins to be transported back to the United Maharajya and sold. SOC Rail continues to try gaining contracts to build extensive rail networks in Dakshin Maharajya and Uttarshina. In Dakshin Maharajya, the company begins to work at a rapid pace, making use of cheap labour and using it to construct the lines rapidly. Many tunnels are made while land is leveled for the railroads. Profits begin to surge and money begins to head into the coffers of the SOC once more. Although not out of the woods yet, they now have funds to continue their projects. The UM works with Japan to implement the Uda Code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. The Maha-Agni Class continues construction and one more is launched, reducing the strain on the economy. Asabists continue to gain respect in Patagoshina and they begin to become part of Patagoshinan society once more. Afghani cities continue growth and work on keeping its army in shape.

Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. Sanjay Rajpath is now able to just focus on his inventions rather than having to run a business. Rajesh helps his father in the inventing scene, but he is more busy running the company. The Daily Times continues to sell well and it begins to become bigger on the geopolitical scene as well as the science based news. The telephone begins to be made in greater numbers and sold to more households. The radar begins to be worked on more by Sanjay who is trying to make the technology more viable. In the capital of Bhubaneswar, construction of a subway and trams continues. The first akashchuts continue to be build in the outskirts of the city while many old buildings in the central city beginning renovation. The palace renovation is finally commissioned, and the first tours to enter the palace are opened to members of the public rich enough to afford the luxury. However, the news causes a huge buzz. The small town of Khittagong is transformed into a small city with thousands coming into the city to set up new lives for themselves. The construction of more coal based power stations continue, with electrical power grids being laid down. The Dominion of Uttarshina continues the construction of its new capital, with work nearly done. its location is the OTL location of ---------. The huge southern reconstruction plan continues with many workers now having jobs. The NHS is made into a greater force with doctors beginning to be employed and helping people. The Kapoor siblings continue their taxing work but have continued to make rapid progress. Their helicopter begins to be worked on and more designs are looked at and a few more prototypes are built. The siblings continue the construction of their small factories to construct aircraft, airships and now helicopters. Their planes work better as more research is put into it. Tata Motors' armoured cars and tanks are proved worthwhile and continue to be produced for the army. The nation's intellectuals continue their frenzy. They prove many of the laws and theorems they have received internationally. They also begin to research the universe and telescopes are built all around the nation to observe stars. Some "bright" scientists also discover the first radioactive elements scietifically and it is called Radium. They also begin to look into the opening of a new, uncertai, form of physics now opened with the arrival of international theorems. This field is dubbed "quantum mechanics". Meanwhile, the United Maharajya accepts the Mayan offer and immediately sends over workers to begin work on the canal-laying projectsThe Maharaja dies this year, and his young son comes to the throne. He is looking to continue good relations with various nations around the world, and thus begins to tour allied nations. He starts off by visiting Italia other Equalist Republics and then heading to China where he sees the rapid change beginning to emerge in the nation. He then goes to visit Japan. The government hears of the news of the uprisings, and as a result, troops are sent to Ethiopia to help their brethern get the situation under control. Tanks and the new Gatling guns are sent too and it is hoped the rebellion can be crushed. The number coming in from Ethiopia increases as a result, but as soldiers' families accompany them, many end up heading to Ethiopia.

1907

Radical Russian Equalists, believing that the "Socialist" government is a pack of class traitors, launch terrorist attacks all across the country. This signals the beginning of the Second Russian Civil War. Tsar Mkihail is assassainated by the radicals and the entire country falls into chaos. The radical Equalists gain massive popularity by encouraging resentment toward the ruling class, and by pointing toward the "glorious Equalist nations of the UER and China". The nations of Eesti, Baltica, Byelorussia, and Ukraine all declare independance from the chaos in Russia. These nations were already mostly independant by the time the revolution began.

Yank, can you stop crapping on Russia all the time? The socialists run 80% of the Duma, anyway. Get your head on straight.

Also, stop naming every Tsar Ivan. Racist.

For some reason I thought the Tsar would be the same guy as the one who came after the bombing. Plus the name Ivan is one of the most common last names in Russia. While the assumption isn't very ethnically sensitive, it isn't racist. Because Russians are not another race.
Ivan is too common for a Tsar. At least use something cooler like Konstantin or Mikhail (which I see you used). Anyway, as I said: the socialists dominate the Duma.
Aren't the Bolsheviks supposed to be the radicals? What if one day they decide that all this democracy nonsense isn't good enough?
Isn't this supposed to be alternate history? What if one day OTL decides that all this copycatishness nonsense is no good?
If you are talking about naming conventions, you can look up the etymology of the words Bolshevik and Menshevik, and they actually mean things in Russian, and I believe that the naming is still relevant. They also have a secondary ideology name in the spirit of OTL Communist Ideologies (Davidovism (mensh.) and Lavrentievism (Bolsh.)). Also, my motivations for naming them as such are for three reasons: 1. personal laziness and unwillingness to get confused, 2. As mentioned before, the names actually have meanings, and 3. Not wanting to confuse everyone else so people know that Bolsheviks are Bolsheviks and Mensheviks are Mensheviks

Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!

You're not helping, Guns. Anyway, I read Lx's own opsts and they imply that the Bolsheviks were the radicals. Don't you have a ludicrously quickly expanding exile state to take care of?
Bolsheviks becoming terrorists is in the spirit of how I created them to be ... they even tried to convince China to invade Russia ... but they were answered in silence. The whole terrorist thing is in the spirit of the Bolsheviks, but the whole killing the Tsar AND his heir AND civil war, well that is the worst thing since the Implausigasm explosion that somehow blew up the Entire Duma. It would take extreme incompetance from 1. The Russian Intelligence Agencies, 2. The Imperial guard and 3. any and all security measures put in place to prevent another 1857 Implausigasm-bomb from happening as well as people deciding to disregard the law just because the monarch died. Russia is not an absolute monarchy, the whole system does not crumble to pieces simply because nobody at the moment sits the throne, Also, we are no longer in medieval times, the rule of law is an actual thing, and there exists a Line of Succession, worst case scenario the Duma just decides to revert back to elective monarchy with systems in place like pre-Duma-Kaboomboom. Also, wasn't the Second Russian civil war a "(half thought-out) idea" after Scraw criticized you stating that civil wars are up to players?
^ This last sentence. Also, as George Clooney and Brad Pitt would say, you don't pull the same gag twice.
Well, George Clooney and Brad Pitt have the bad habit of pulling the same gag over and over again. ~Viva
Scraw, your argument is invalid.

If it was Yank who made that event, just don't force other nations into this.

I will ignore everything following "terrorist attacks all over the country", citing the Russian civil war section on the talk page.-Lx (leave me a message)Azarath Flag

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Majorca, Barcelona, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies improve and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Portugal, and the other Iberian states. Meanwhile in Majorca, Isabel III gives birth to a boy, who is named Hug. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 7600 sq km. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Brasil, and some efforts to connect some existing railroads to each other are made. Meanwhile, it expands by 57,400 sq km. Meanwhile, the Post-A'Asabist states under Brasilian or Portuguese influence expand by 5000 sq km each. Meanwhile, Portugal makes an offer to sell part of Sofala's territory to Orissa in return for equivalent territory in the Brasilian borders again. Meanwhile, the war with the Praeorate continues.
  • France's economy improves and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, propaganda aimed to legitimize the current government starts to be spread on France.
  • Mutapa builds up its military.
  • The Rokkaku Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation. Empress Go-Shōtoku continues seeing the construction of railways throughout the nation. Shinto shrines, Taoist temples and some Buddhist temples are built throughout the colonies. More funding is put into science and agriculture. More fertiliser is created and used on fields. More air furnaces are also built. Meanwhile, urbanisation continues throughout the nation. More steam power is built, and a few water wheels are built. In the Special Administrative Region of Byakuren, the city of Hata no Kokoro continues being rebuilt along with the Buddhist temple. Industrialisation goes well, especially with the help of the Germans. Major cities such as Hakodate, Tokyo, Kyoto, Kōchi, Saga, Kobe, and Osaka continue growing in population and expanding. Sado also expands in population. Daihatsu Company continues making more Kurumas (Japanese for car). The colony of Kitatojiko expands by 9900 sq km.
  • The Federal Republic of Tojiko continues to build up its military, and industrialisation continues. Some Jīdūhist and Amaterasuist churches are built. A few Shinto shrines are also built.
  • The Neu Berlin Republic of Kasodani continues to build up its military. Kasodani also expands northward by 9900 sq km. More Shinto shrines and Taoist temples are built. A few Buddhist temples are also built. The city of Kyouko and the town of Ichirin continues to grow thanks to gold.
  • The Republic of Himekaidou continues to build up its military and industrialisation continues. Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples are built throughout the nation.
  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry, with the entire nation being solidly industrialized. The three major religions solidify their control over the entire country, with significant Russian Orthodox and Germanic minorities. The Scandinavians begin to expend their influence on Eesti and Baltica, saying that they'll extend Scandinavian protection to them to prevent the Equalists from taking control of their nations. The Scandinavians send the two nations arms and supplies to resist Equalist aggression.
  • If anyone wants to vote on the Apostolic elections do so now - right now we have only one candidate and two votes so if there's no objection I'll declare it unanimous.
  • In Imperium Africana, a public campaign is begun with the aim of gaining the support of the populace to turn away from the rebels and marshalling additional forces to face the Equalist threat. Support from the United Maharajya continues, and with it, the Imperial forces march on the Equalist strongholds with relative ease, crushing any threats to the empire. The minority populations continue to dwindle as Ethiopian subjects surround and exterminate them, mostly due to their supporting the rebels, and the fact that the majority of recruits continue to come from the minority groups that despise the government. The construction of military vessels continues in the empire, thankfully due to the fact that the industrial regions of the empire are either loyal to the Crown, or largely Ethiopian. If the war were not enough, the IMS Titanic crashes into an iceburg and sinks into the Arctic Ocean, with more than 1500 deaths, including the captain of the ship and most of the crew. The rest of the passengers make to nearby Baridi, where they settle down as part of the previous mission they had been sent on, and assist in the construction effort in the region. Ethiopian furs produced in the region keep the newcomers warm, and with Inuit knowledge assisting them, the construction and industrialization in the Arctic territories of Ethiopian continues to grow. Darfur's minority rebellion has largely been suppressed with extreme prejudice, and the Ethiopian population has succeded in keeping the old ethnic groups from infiltrating and destroying the government. After two hundred years of rule in the region, Darfur is Ethiopian through and through. The same can be said for the other regions of the empire, where the majority Ethiopian populations, thanks to a consistent program of Ethiopification, have come to dominate all aspects of life in the dominions. Rebel forces are finding it harder and harder to control new territories due to size limitations, lack of public support, and more importantly, the lack of anti-tank weapons. Tanks make their premier on the field, and have proven their worth as a military asset as they cut through entire lines of rebel forces. Additional support from aeroplanes to spot and bomb rebel positions also help in crushing the rebellion. The Equalists, as with the Faceists, are quickly being routed throughout the Imperium.
    • Germany commits anti-Equalist troops to the Ethiopian allies. The Green Cross of the Afrika mobilises to aid those stricken by the war.
  • Nunavut expands by 10,000 km inland, moving north along the shoreline. With industrial support from the homeland, Nuvavut continues to push its borders deeper inland as well, with rail lines placed down by recently arrivals from Nigeria. Wadab is expanded by 30,000 km pushing westward across Neu Berliner territories. Taimaini expands by 30,000 km on the coast, with new factories and power generators built in the major cities of the territory. Baridi expands by 30,000 km with additional profits coming from increased oil production, and the lack of foreign competition allows the Ethiopians there to expand at a faster pace, effectively permitting them to claim the island as their own. New Borona expands 60,000 km inward, focusing on northward expansion. The lack of political upheaval and military threats allows the state to move father inland with little trouble The military, economy and infrastructure of all territories are expanded. Transportation within the empire continues to expand, along with electrical output in the major cities throughout the Imperium.
  • Bayern (Member of the German Empire): The state of Bayern builds its military along with all her colonies (Borneo). Borneo expands infrastructure and continues industry. Bavaria continues to experience a baby boom. Cities like Munchen and Bamberg grow as people flock to the cities. Work in the Imperial Capital continues at a breakneck pace. The German Navy is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". The German Navy embraces newer battleship technologies, leaving the small and unwieldy ironclads in the past. Modern dreadnought technologies continue to grow. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. Airstrips become a common sight.  German dreadnoughts are sold to Britannia and Australis in a massive military upgrade of all the Commonwealth nations. Germany celebrates the new allainces. Traine's inventions become more popular, especially the AC in Borneo and Afrika, and the polygraph becomes a wildly used tool over the whole Empire. Wilhelm Taften pushes for a "International League of Nations" in the Reichstag, but so far his proposal is slow in catching on. Hearing of Baltica's succession from Russia, German diplomats begin working on improving German-Baltic relations and begin to exert infleunce slightly on them. Georg Severus writes a book called Wenn Atlas Gezuckt (When Atlas Shrugged). in the novel, he talks about the threat of Equalism to the individual and the progression of Science. In effort to combat this "Social Disease" he develops Relativism. A social philosophy that discusses superiority of the individual, as long as the individual works within the system. Every person contributes to the whole of society's betterment. Technology is viewed as the saving grace of mankind. And that Equalism is the anti-thesis of modern thought, and a regression to the dark ways. After the publishing of this book, the novel flies off the shelves. Relativism catches on quickly in Bavaria and even in the Imperial Reichstag in Bamberg. Relativist thought begins to permeate German society due to the glorification of science and the German people. (Relativism is a Fascist political affiliation, still a socialist philosophy, but the anti-thesis of Equalism, greatly pushing a technocratic view of the world)
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black (45,000 sq km) as more and more settlers arrive in the nation. The nation continues to make money from its jewelry exports, which are some of the best in the world. The Australian navy is upgraded. The military expands. Commonwealth Electric expands. More airstrips are built as part of a plan to streamline Bavarian and Saxon adminstrated regions of Australis. Australis, with Saxon Australis, declares war on Sumba. Relativism becomes really popular amongst the upper classes as it de-legitimises the Equalist movement.
  • Imperial Commonwealth of Britannia: British and German ships reach the tiny island of Pure Science and bombard coastal defenses allowing the allied forces to take the beaches and begin toppling the maniacal rulers. In Britain, the parliament in York votes to give women the vote as well as provide benefits to less fortunate members of society. This move, long awaited by the poor, gains the government popular favour in the eyes of the people. Bavarian Prime Minister Josef Friedmann, arrives and travels the major cities of Brittannia including London, the capital York, Edinburgh, Dublin and as his last stop, Cardiff, where he held a speech and christened a monument near the Fisher's Wharf where the attack was conducted. The Kaiser of Germany also attended and had a speech as well, talking about unity in hard times but commented and praised the endurance of the Welsh people and all the peoples of the German Commonwealths in overcoming travesty. Both leaders were given a full send off with flowers and wreaths given. Wales votes in the Apostolic Elections. Relativism becomes really popular amongst the upper classes as it de-legitimises the Equalist movement. Realtivism becomes particularly popular in Britain.
  • Commonwealth of Afrika: Work continues on the railways and telegraph in the Saxon Administrative Region. Local militia units are raised to defend the region from desert nomad rebels in the Sahara to the south. Missionaries of the Holy Wettin Missionary Order continue to proseletyse and provide schooling and medical care. Hospitals and medical care continue to grow. Oil rigs and derricks begin to be commonplace. Samuel Exxon founds Exxon Motor Petroleum. Exxon Oil expands as the German need for oil grows. Afrika purchases numerous airship and airplanes as a part of the Commonwealth upgrades. Airstrips pop up more and more. After many years of non-expansion, Afrika expands 45,000 sq km to the south into the desert.  Relativism becomes really popular amongst the upper classes as it de-legitimises the Equalist movement.
  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity begins replacing steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. We establish a constitutional monarchy. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and are slowly adopting electricity. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We spend 40% of our country's reserves to industrialize. 
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): Saxony continues to give materiel support to Britannia in its war against the evil terrorist Praetoriate. The Left government invests in the economy. Kasseler Luftschifffabrik (Kassel Airship Manufacturers) grows in popularity, offering competition to SL. The colonies expand their maximum amounts. In Saxon Australis, Sachsische Luftschiffbau opens its first flight to Tanimbarkai to Tanimbarkai. Tanimbarkai expands militarily. The "Green Cross" expands through philanthropy and people in other countries set up branches to give humanitarian aid.
  • Anhalt (Vassal of Saxony: In a state of civil war): The war really heats up this year. With both sides having built up their numbers last year, full-on fighting erupts with the spring thaw. Pitched and guerrilla battles are fought in the length and breadth of the country. The URFA manages to get within one km of the capital's walls, but are eventually pushed back by the Regency forces. 
  • The Hellenic Equalist Republic: The HER government continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic Peninsula to spurt the economy on. In Cyprus and Crete, cloth factories and paper mills are built and in the colonies, hospitals and health care continue to be widespread. In Constantinople and the surrounding areas, artillery begins being built and is placed at both the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack. The HER continues to expand both its economy and its military and its colonies are expanded. Artillery becomes more widespread and is used to protect the Union. 
  • The Egyptian Equalist Republic: Continues to expand its army and navy, as well as its economy. It expands by 40,000 sq km.
  • The Tamanian Equalist Republic:  Continues expanding its military and economy. The new government aggressively expands infrastructure and begins to develop the oil industry, and exports to other UER republics in an attempt to make Tamanian oil a staple within the UER.
  • The Beninese Equalist Republic: Reforms and expands its army and navy, as well as begins rudimentary railway and steel and glass building. It also begins to build oil rigs. It expands by 40,000 sq km.
  • The Italian Affiliated UER: Continues to put down anti-UER rebellions and continues to rebuild its military and economy in a centralised manner.
  • Apostolic Elections: Bishop Elmo Hgogin'Australias'ai'gro'bichin'yagich, from the Yagich Rafaelite colony of Yagich Chongat Yagich in Australis, is unanimously elected (church controlled by Lemming until 1926). Very few bishops sought the office in such a turbulent time, and while Elmo is lagely unknown and from one of the most remote Apostolic areas, he has a reputation for copmpetence and "running a tight ship" - although relatively few knew of him before the election. Part-Welsh on both sides of his family, Elmo has flaming red hair, which is very odd for an ethnic Selk'nam, leading many to refer to him as "Elmo the Red". (You guys have no clue what you have just unleashed with this, dude ...)
  • Russia reacts to the terror attacks by making membership of the Bolshevik party illegal and identifying it as a rebelious organizaiton, the votes are given temporarily to the Mensheviks, as they are technicaly a branch of the Russian Equalist Party. Many debate making Equalism illegal in Russia, but socialists disagree, and they control parliament, so that does not happen, but the mensheviks end up with 20% of the votes until the next elections in 1910. Also, airplanes and tanks are greatly improved upon.
  • Russia's associates work on military and economy alternately.
  • By that I mean
  • Belorussia
  • Ukraina
  • Eesti
  • Baltica 
  • and Kazakhstan Federation.
  • NOTE: I still want some sort of explanation before I give in to the Implausigasm-bomb 2.0, And it better be a good one other than "Cause I said so". But then again, I have no hopes for a reasonable explanation, what I expect is that I will get nothing for about two to three weeks other than arguing, and then, finally, my answer will be: well, it's too late to change anything anyway, because nations have free-for-alled my territory ... just like the last two times.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Allied forces crush the Praetorate of Pure Science and quickly occupy the island of Yagich Gavin, which is put under joint Allied administation. Princess Matthea scandalizes the Harruwin by announcing that she has married a divoced German nobleman named Heimlich Phlegmenspitten and will renounce her claim to the throne. Meanwhile, her younger sister Ælfgifu seeks permission to marry a nephew of the Kaiser, Prince Rudolf (Germany, feel free to change his name, I picked one randomly), but asks if he will return to the Haruwin with her, as her older sister's scandal makes it possible that she may ascend to the throne.  Princess Pharaildis returns to the Haruwin unmarried. **Germany accepts the royal union and Prince Rudolf travels to the Haruwin. The Kaiser prepares for the royal marriage.
  • Yagich Rafael: There is great rejoicing at the victory over the Praetorate, but it is short-lived as Prime Minster William Henry surprisingly dies after one year in office. Parliament elects a relatively unknown politician to suceed him after a contentious vote - John Re'ly'tygich'YagichRafael'yijich.
  • Attican Union: With the war won - coalition negotiations resume in the paralyzed parliament. Surprisingly, the Socialist abandon Prime Minister Ludwig and support his Pascifist nemess, Willie Tdna'rbi'i'i'i - who supports more government spending for the poor. Born of poor kelp farmers and with a homespun personality, the new Prime Minister insists that he be listed as "Prime Minister Willie" rather than the more formal "William" - as he says "ain't nobody called me that before, and I don't plan on startin' it now." There is much anxiousness at what the Pacifists will do in government. 
  • Preatorate of Eternal Matter: The government continues to function as Pythagoras tries to balance pragmatist and pro-Eris factions. Eris seems to  have escaped the war unfound, and some want Pythagoras to offer her asylum if she is indeed alive. Pythagoras' solution is merely to say nothing at all about the situation. Industrialization deepens. 
  • All states expand the military. Neu Germanica expands 32,000 sq km. People continue to move into Lakota and Ostkasodan. Theodor Rosenfeld continues to press the Plains Lakota. More people move into Novomoskovsk, so it expands 15,000 sq km.
  • The United Maharajya expand economy and army and so their puppets, vassal and dominions. Jainistan is expanded by 64,000 km. Orissan Aprika is also expanded by 64,000 km.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade. The Empire continues the construction of two canals - one in Boruca (Panama) and one in Mangue/Chorotega (Nicaragua). The government proceeds with caution in dealing with the new Equalist governments. Immigration is limited. The Royal Science Academy continue studying the 'steam turbine', as well as experimenting with crude oil. Electricity becomes a popular amenity in some more wealthy provinces.

1908

On a last expansionist effort, Neu Berlin nominally annexes the gap formed between it, the River Lakota and Ostkasodan. However, the new territory still needs to be settled.

For the record, I'm just doing this event because I want to get rid of that hole as soon as possible. Since Scraw completely surrounds it ... --Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 21:03, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

The independent Lakota nation between Ostkasodan and the Neu Berlin River Lakota refuses any offer to give up its sovereignty to the Neu Berliners.

WTF, why?

Well, you were going to invade anyway if you didn't have an answer, so I just might as well give you an answer that'll yield the same result.
I was trying to avoid a war. That's normally what a nation would do when trying to avoid a war. Threaten a war, scare them into bloodless union. Simple. But noooooooooooooooooooooooo.
  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Majorca, Barcelona, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies improve and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Portugal, and the other Iberian states. Meanwhile in Aragon, Felipa Fernandes de Lara gives birth to a girl, who is named Felipa. Meanwhile in Castille, Fernando VIII dies and is succeeded by his son Manuel, who is crowned as "By the Grace of God, Manuel, King of Castille, Toledo, Jaén, Murcia, Cantabria, Duke of Nájera, Huete, Pastrana, Peñafiel, Soría and Villalba, Marchess of Auñón, La Adrada, Malagón, Count of Alcaudete, Bañares, Castrojeriz and Villalobos". Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Brasil, and some efforts to connect some existing railroads to each other are made. Meanwhile, it expands by 64,000 sq km. Meanwhile, the Post-A'Asabist states under Brasilian or Portuguese influence expand by 5000 sq km each. Meanwhile, Portugal makes an offer to sell part of Sofala's territory to Orissa in return for equivalent territory in the Brasilian borders again. Meanwhile, an election is held to elect the members of the 15th Brasilian Cortes. The Conservatives, led by Lauro Sodré, win. Counting on the support of the Progressive Party (founded in 1897), Prime Minister Manuel Paes de Andrade refuses to resign, and remains in office as head of a minority government.
  • France's economy improves and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, propaganda aimed to legitimize the current government starts to be spread on France.

More funding is put into science and agriculture. More fertiliser is created and used on fields. More air furnaces are also built. Meanwhile, urbanisation continues throughout the nation. More steam power is built, and a few water wheels are built. In the Special Administrative Region of Byakuren, the city of Hata no Kokoro continues being rebuilt along with the Buddhist temple. Industrialisation goes well, especially with the help of the Germans. Major cities such as Hakodate, Tokyo, Kyoto, Kōchi, Saga, Kobe, and Osaka continue growing in population and expanding. Sado also expands in population. Daihatsu Company continues making more Kurumas (Japanese for car). The colony of Kitatojiko expands by 9900 sq km.

  • The Republic of Himekaidou continues to build up its military and industrialisation continues. Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples are built throughout the nation.
  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity begins replacing steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. We establish a constitutional monarchy. We become filthily advanced. We become an economic superpower and are slowly adopting electricity. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We spend 40% of our country's reserves to industrialize. 
  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry, with the entire nation being solidly industrialized. The three major religions solidify their control over the entire country, with significant Russian Orthodox and Germanic minorities. The Scandinavians continue to expend their influence on Eesti and Baltica, saying that they'll extend Scandinavian protection to them to prevent the Equalists from taking control of their nations. The Scandinavians send the two nations arms and supplies to resist Equalist aggression.
  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): The Government sends a "Mission for Friendship and Co-operation" to the gray nation North of Brasil (What is this nation called?). The Mission has a team of diplomats as well as military advisors, industrial advisors, engineers, naval engineers, oil-extraction experts, education experts, railway engineers, scientists, and generally every sort of expert and advisor which would be expected on such a mission. The government hopes that the Mission will help improve Saxony (and Germany)'s economic involvement and general prestige in Atlantia. The mission is approved of by both sides of government, allowing for scenes of remarkable amiability within the Landtag. The economy expands, with the stock market gaining three percentage points in anticipation of a good result from the Mission. The Left, in a move to distance themselves from violent Equalists around the world, issue a statement stating their belief that violence is not a legitimate means of gaining power, further saying that democracy is the only true way that the bourgeoisie can be overthrown. Airship transport gains in popularity, and the army and navy plan to incorporate them more into their structure. In Saxon West Africa, the Governor claims all of the black land north of Teke, and sends in troops and negotiators to make the claim a territorial fact. The colony expands the maximum amount into that gap. In Saxon Australis, new gold mines increase the colony's prosperity, and airship routes to the new goldfields allow for miners to mine during the week and fly home to Boniface for the weekend (paid for by the mining company). In Khmer Koch, nothing happens. In Tanimbarkai, however, there is a flurry of activity. Tanimbarkai declares war on the "Erbfiend" Sumba and moves its troops across the border. Troops from the Commonwealth of Australis, and Saxon Australis attack the small nation from the South.
    • Nouvelle France.
  • Anhalt (Vassal of Saxony: In a state of civil war): The Green Cross is recognized by both sides to be non-combatant, and the URFA and Regency make separate announcements vowing not to harm Green Cross doctors, nurses or vehicles. The Regency's forces manage to take some key towns from the URFA, dismantling the Workers Councils and Co-operatives which the URFA had established. The URFA vow to retake the lands though and they urge the people to rise up against the evil bourgeois.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues and under the Socialists, is endorsed highly. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation with railroad construction continuing all around the nation. The Akashchuts continue to be built at a rapid pace and the city sees its Central Districts completely oppupied by skyscrapers. Better train engines are finally completed and begin to be implemented in large numbers to replace the older engines and speed up transport times. The first diesel engine is made in the United Maharajya and tests to see its effectiveness commence. The promise of this technology is unknown, currently. The SOC big bosses begin to come under less workload and begin to relax more. More rigs are set up in Dakshin Maharajya under SOC Shell. Rigs continue to pump out the oil and it begins to be transported back to the United Maharajya and sold. SOC Rail continues to try gaining contracts to build extensive rail networks in Dakshin Maharajya and Uttarshina. In Dakshin Maharajya, the company completes hundreds of miles of railroad and this helps to link the region better with other cities. Profits begin to surge and money begins to head into the coffers of the SOC once more. Although not out of the woods yet, they now have funds to continue their projects. The UM works with Japan to implement the Uda Code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. The Maha-Agni Class continues construction and one more is launched, reducing the strain on the economy. Asabists continue to gain respect in Patagoshina and they begin to become part of Patagoshinan society once more. Afghani cities continue growth and work on keeping its army in shape. The Gatling gun works very well mounted on armoured cars as well as tanks. The inventors secretly begin working on the world's first semi-automatic rifle, as the need begins to present itself in its allies' territories. Many Jains head to Jainistan and it is expanded by 64,150 kmOrissan Aprika expands 64,000 km. The colony of Orissan Aprika is interested in the acquisition of the new land, but their decision will take some time to reach to the Portuguese. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 15,000 km each. Sanjay Rajpath is now able to just focus on his inventions rather than having to run a business. Rajesh helps his father in the inventing scene, but he is more busy running the company. The Daily Times continues to sell well and it begins to become bigger on the geopolitical scene as well as the science based news. The telephone begins to be made in greater numbers and sold to more households. The radar begins to be worked on more by Sanjay who is trying to make the technology more viable. In the capital of Bhubaneswar, construction of a subway and trams continues. The first akashchuts continue to be build in the outskirts of the city while many old buildings in the central city beginning renovation. The small town of Khittagong is transformed into a small city with thousands coming into the city to set up new lives for themselves. The construction of more coal based power stations continue, with electrical power grids being laid down. The Dominion of Uttarshina continues the construction of its new capital, with work nearly done. its location is the OTL location of ---------. The huge southern reconstruction plan continues with many workers now having jobs. The NHS is made into a greater force with doctors beginning to be employed and helping people. The Kapoor siblings continue their taxing work but have continued to make rapid progress. Their helicopter begins to be worked on and more designs are looked at and a few more prototypes are built. The siblings continue the construction of their small factories to construct aircraft, airships and now helicopters. Their planes work better as more research is put into it. Tata Motors' armoured cars and tanks are proved worthwhile and continue to be produced for the army. The nation's intellectuals continue their frenzy. They prove many of the laws and theorems they have received internationally. Scientists continue to look into radioactive atoms and more work on Radium is done. Their work in the theoretical physics field continues. Research on the universe continues and the stars are observed in greater detail, helping to greaten the understanding of the scientists. The new Maharaja spends a lot of time with Japan, beginning to get close with the crown Princess. He begins to have feeling for her and spends a lot of his time with her. He heads back, but promises to visit again soon. Thousands more soldiers are sent to Ethiopia and the tanks finally have a practical war they can fight in. The uprisers are fought back and the tanks help give a huge advantage over the opposition. Work on the canals continue.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Khmers expand their military, economy and infrastructure. Dakshin Maharajya begins to experience growth and as its rail networks are linked up in a better fashion, the flow of goods is made quicker. In schools, Sankala is the main language to be taught which the regional language takes the role of second main language. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance - especially in Atlantia and Aprika. Kongo is expanded by 15,000 km northward, and Kongo continues to vassalise the states close by.
  • All states expand military. Neu Germanica expands by 32,000 sq km. Theodor Rosenfeld pushes the Reichstag into declaring sovereignty over the Plains Lakota nation (a la USA-Texas). Tanks and planes continue to be built. Theodor Rosenfeld contacts the Mayans and asks them to build a canal through OTL Nicaragua with Neu Berliner aid or to sell the area directly along the canal to Neu Berlin for construction (the second is better for both of us). A bold young explorer named Hermann Heidreitsch sets off with a crew of six to reach the North Pole, and they accomplish it before the year is over. They set off on their return journey and they declare that they will go to the South Pole after they return home.
    • Dude, you're a little late. The Mayans have partnered with the Maharajya on a dual-canal project. I've been posting about it for a few turns now.
  • Russia continues to combat the terrorists. Elections are held in the areas formerly controlled by the Bolsheviks, and they elect independent members, leading toward radical Equalism. In any case, the Russian military is on high alert as the search for the Bolshevik leader, who has gone into hiding (secretly into CHINA, if they let him). Russian air force is built up as a Russian airplane engineer designs the first airplane with a modern cabin and fuselage with seating and whatnot, leading to the first commercial flight between Novgorod and St-Nikolaevsk (OTL St Petersburg) (this is the ATL equivalent of the Ruskiy vitiaz). The military looks at his plans and asks to modify to suit military purposes, and this produces the Ilyua Muromets aircraft, the first modern bomber (OTL same name). Russian Aviation is at an historical high. However, a bomb explodes in Moscow, causing mass panic, and martial law to be declared in the city.
  • Belorussia begins to fight Bolsheviks, and, following Russia's example last year, decides to make it illegal to be a member of the Bolshevik Faction, although does not make it illegal to be an adherent to Davidovism (as it is not the ideology, but the Bolsheviks that are terrorists), this sparks mass protests as it seems that their freedom of dissent is being suppressed. Economic work is done while working on railways.
  • Ukraina decides to wait on action on the Bolsheviks until attacks directly threaten their nation. In the meantime, work on helicopters continue. Work on the military's air force and air reconnaisance forces are being hurried, also, more money put into science and technology, a controversy arises when a teacher in a Kiev high school decides to teach evolution instead of the Biblical creation story in his class.
  • Kazakhstan Federation works on its economics. However, when an explosion occurs in one of the oil rigs in the nation, causing a giant petroleum explosion on the capital, the Kazakhs declare martial law in the capital until things can be sorted out.
  • Eesti works on rial links and its military is put on high alert, and the Estonian Intelligence Agency (EIA) is founded to try to prevent terrorist attacks before they even happen, Bolsheviks decide to try to rile up the nation into a state of Revolution, as they take Ukraine as an example of what may happen, and to some degree, are succesful in stirring up some riots.
  • Baltica takes example from Eesti and establishes the Committee for State Security (CSS) and uses it to root out Bolshevism, which has slightly less success than in Eesti in starting riots. However, terrorism has yet to seep through to the Baltic states in then-Russian realm. Militaries are, however, on high alert, and railroads link up to German ones.
  • Whoever deleted my edit, not cool.
    • You still don't get to choose what you'll follow. Plus your post is now out-of-date.
  • The fighting in Imperium Africana comes to an end once the rebel leaders are found, given a trial, and executed. The rebel forces are routed en masses, and with no major recruitment centers, many enter into a dying guerrilla movement that lacks support from the regions. With the war at an end, the Emperor announces that he shall continue his trip, and will be personally speaking with the leaders of each dominion so as to improve their skills and commend them for their efforts in preserving the empire. The development of additional tanks, warships, and aeroplanes continue, and new railways and power plants are built. Propaganda continues throughout the empire praising the Imperial family and the military, and lands lost to foreigners continue to be painted in black. Scientist Ghafar Ezra publishes four groundbreaking scientific papers, on the photoelectric effect, Brownian motion, special relativity, and the equivalence of mass and energy, which were to bring him to the notice of the academic world.
  • Nunavut expands by 10,000 km inland, moving north along the shoreline. Industrial support continues to flow in from the rest of the Imperium supporting growth in Nunavut. Wadab is expanded by 30,000 km pushing westward across Neu Berliner territories. Taimaini expands by 30,000 km on the coast, with new factories and power generators built in the major cities of the territory. Baridi expands by 30,000 km with additional profits coming from increased oil production, and the lack of foreign competition allows the Ethiopians there continue to expand at a faster pace. New Borona expands 60,000 km inward, focusing on northward expansion. The military, economy and infrastructure of all territories are expanded. Transportation within the empire continues to expand, along with electrical output in the major cities throughout the Imperium.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade. The Empire continues the construction of two canals - one in Boruca (Panama) and one in Mangue/Chorotega (Nicaragua). The government proceeds with caution in dealing with the new Equalist governments. Immigration is limited. The Royal Science Academy continue studying the 'steam turbine', as well as experimenting with crude oil. Electricity becomes a popular amenity in some more wealthy provinces. A new type of clothing becomes available, work pants with metal rivets to keep the fabric from wearing (OTL Blue Jeans). The Juun family continues the construction of the battleships, as well as some new types of military ships. Ahaulel Autos continues producing autos under Tepeu Baleta, utilizing pneumatic tires. Ahaulel begins producing a new type of auto, an 'autobike'. Ahtohil Motors continues mass-producing autos. A popular auto becomes the tractor, which reduces time and increases efficiency on farms.

1909

Far East Republic (PMII)
The Equalists rapidly gain up in influence and power as they promise the workers greater prosperity and freedom and not the "socialist" bull their current, corrupt government, who have continously done nothing and have let the Equalists gain control of multiple areas. The nation is now plunged into chaos and every town and city now has to declare its alligence. The Equalists have gained some of the tanks and have put their factories to use producing them. The Socialist government also has the tanks and their factories are producing them too. The first tank battles of the world begins with the epic showdown of the two forces at Kursk. Both sides annihilate each other and Ukraine is plunged into total chaos too, following the large concentration of their forces. The Far East Republic declares their freedom, while Esteri and the Baltics declare their total independence and break relations with Russia. Both sides ask for help from other nations in the world. Only an (L) from another major nation in the planet will decide which side comes out on top. NOTE: It might have been Yank's half developed brain child, but I am taking this and making the idea complete.
What types of governments are in charge of these new states?
OK, I'm tired of this. Why does Russia have to get all the crap? Russia is already socialist and Equalists would never get far because everyone is already socialist. Few people would be the radicals that the Equalists are. When Lx says that the "socialist control the Duma" it means that they control all the regions they represent. Meaning that "let the Equalists gain control of multiple areas" is bullshit. I am sick and tired of mods creating situations in PLAYER NATIONS that contradict things that players have REPEATEDLY stated. Not to mention that Russia is a stable nation ATL and does not have problems that OTL Russia had like absolutism, a really poor middle class, and noble titles. Russia, ATL, was the center of the Enlightenment, has been through enough giant wars, abolished slavery and serfdom first, stopped being absolute first and has a completely elected monarchy (even the Tsar is elected for crying out loud). Not to mention that these Siberian natives have exactly a ZERO percent chance of any form of successful rebellion. Russia is completely tolerant of these people, and having them revolt is pretty much as ASB as you can create in Russia. And in case you haven't noticed, Lx has already left a notice on the talk page stating that he has other things to do, like taking tests like any normal student. That you are never placed in the same circumstances does not mean that his is not legitimate. And Russia has already been through this once, why in hell are you doing it again? As was demonstrated last time, he has actual reasons for not being here. I'd very much like to see you placed in his shoes while someone brutalizes over a year of your work of building up a nation only to have it torn apart more than once. You might as well just kick him out of the game at this point. ~ Defender of the Absent
Again.
Sure it did. However, Lx has taken a fondness for OTL events to continue to occur in Russia. This not happening would be hypocritical. Lets start off with when this first happened. When Lx decided to return to the game, the Revolutions of 1858 helped him significantly - perhaps more than what it should have. Russia does not have absolutism, true, but the Equalists were shown to be radicals, and radicals don't care for money. The fact that they were able to attack all the things in Russia and get away with it allows them to show to the public the current government is totally useless. And that Far East Republic thing is not meant to last long at all, it happened in OTL, it happens here - especially with the fact there are more Russians in Siberia than in OTL. So unless you want to pitch in and finish this civil war in 2 years, putting the socialists back into power (who will become very close to your nation) as well as getting the breakaway of the Far East Republic back into the Russian fold quickly, stop the ranting.
Did you even read what I said? Your argument accepts the mod event as complete fact without addressing the plausibility of it. Take this sentences for example: "The fact that they were able to attack all the things in Russia and get away with it allows them to show to the public the current government is totally useless." This completely disregards my statement about why the attacks should not have been possible. As for another example: "So unless you want to pitch in and finish this civil war in two years, putting the socialists back into power (who will become very close to your nation) as well as getting the breakaway of the Far East Republic back into the Russian fold quickly, stop the ranting." Again, no one should have to be helping, because the independence of the FER is already implausible  enough, and the whole event in general is. As for me helping the Russians, why don't you do it? Help your fellow socialists. Hypocrite. And let's not forget that you created the Revolutions of 1858. And another thing: no idiot uses OTL events to damage himself; I do not deny that I do this. And don't you even think about calling bias unless you're willing to do so yourself.
    • After much consideration, Germany declares support for the true Russian government.

The Central African states under Orissa have lost all remaining guerrilla forces and are now under Orissan control. Many tribal chiefs are not happy with the fact and they do not know what to do.

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Majorca, Barcelona, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies improve and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Portugal, and the other Iberian states. Meanwhile, Portuguese starts to be taught in Leonese and Castillian schools as a second language. Meanwhile, Sofala expands by 7600 sq km. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Brasil, and some efforts to connect some existing railroads to each other are made. Meanwhile, it expands by 57,400 sq km. Meanwhile, the Post-A'Asabist states under Brasilian or Portuguese influence expand by 5000 sq km each. Meanwhile, Portugal makes an offer to sell part of Sofala's territory to Orissa in return for equivalent territory in the Brasilian borders again. Meanwhile, a huge scandal rocks the Andrade cabinet when one of his appointees was discovered to be accepting bribes. Anticipating a vote of censure by the Cortes, Andrade asks the Viceroy, Garcia XIII d'Ávila, Count of Bahia, to call an election. The Viceroy refuses, and Andrade resigns. Then, Lauro Sodré becomes Prime Minister again. Andrade claims this is interference in Brasilian politics by an official appointed by a foreign power. Andrade eventually rallies the Progressives back into his camp, and defeats Sodré on a vote of confidence after only three months. This time, d´Ávila calls an election. In the ensuing federal election, Andrade appeals for public support of the constitutional principle that the Viceroy must accept the advice of his ministers, though this principle is at most only customary. The Liberals argue that the Viceroy had interfered in politics and shown favour to one party over another. Andrade and his party win the election and a clear majority in the Cortes. After his party's defeat and the loss of his own seat, Sodré resigns as Conservative leader.
  • France's economy improves and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, propaganda aimed to legitimize the current government continues to be spread on France.

    • Not to be irritating, but Germany is already influencing Baltica. We had been for years until the Russians took it, and we intend to have Baltica join Prussia as a member of the Commonwealth.
    • Then I'll just focus on Eesti, because of its common Finnic ancestry.
    • Thanks. Also, did you check your talkpage? I posted something there.
    • I'm not crazy about anything like OTL fascism. The Fascist Party I mentioned earlier is more of a conservative party in favor of stronger government, not racial purity.
    • I revised the party to be more technocratic, considering Germany's fairly mixed national population, the racial purity part was a bit much.
  • In Imperium AfricanaGhafar Erza is recognized as a leading scientist, and appointed a lecturer at the University of Addis Ababa, the most prestigious center of learning in the empire, and one of the greatest in the world. He continues to work on his theories as he begins teaching at the university. Meskerem Tinadem and her husband revolutionizes the world's understanding of radioactivity and x-rays, which comes to bring them before academic leaders throughout Ethiopia. The military continues its production of armored vehicles and aircraft, which they use to establish a series of military units throughout the empire, ensuring that the government can put down any rebellious forces before they appear. The expansion fo the dreadnought fleet continues, with more than forty-two dreadnoughts in service already. Attention is turned toward expanding the new "air force", which the Ethiopian government has acknowledged may change the course of warfare forever. Propaganda continues in the schools of the Imperium, as the teachers train children to remember the "Great Injustices", a long list of wrongs commited against their people throughout history, grooming them as those who will seek justice for these crimes against their people.

Luke's headquarters are in Wuhan, leading to the cities nickname as the 'Capital of Automotion'. The military and economy both expand. Equalist propaganda cements Equalism into China as public support increases. In the meantime, Russia is considered under Chinese protection. Any attempts to exploit the nation while it is in the midst of a civil war will be met with force.
  • Gang Federation: Despite poor relations with China, the Model Ershi makes its way to the Gang Federation. Luke is forbidden to open formal relations with the country, forcing the Gang Federation to produce its own automobile company. Brothers Hiroshi and Yin create the car company Hiroshi-Yin.

Hearing of Baltica's succession from Russia, German diplomats begin working on improving German-Baltic relations and begin to exert influence on Baltica. Georg Severus writes a book called Wenn Atlas Gezuckt(When Atlas Shrugged). in the novel, he talks about the threat of Equalism to the individual and the progression of Science. In effort to combat this "Social Disease" he develops Relativism A social philosophy that discusses superiority of the individual, as long as the individual works within the system. Every person contributes to the whole of society's betterment. Technology is viewed as the saving grace of mankind. And that Equalism is the anti-thesis of modern thought, and a regression to the dark ways. After the publishing of this book, the novel flies off the shelves. Relativism catches on quickly in Bavaria and even in the Imperial Reichstag in Bamberg. Relativist thought begins to permeate German society due to the glorification of science and the German people.(Relativism is a technocratic political affiliation, still a socialist philosophy, but the anti-thesis of Equalism, greatly pushing a technocratic view of the world). Due to mounting fears of the Equalists and the rising popularity of Relativism. Germany declares support for the True Russian Government but stops short of declaring war until the situation becomes clear.

Germany assures that we wish no ill will on China and will not war with China, we are merely defending the legitiment government of Russia. We ask China to not get involved or at least let us settle this diplomatically. (Germany has no reason for war with China, Equalist or not.)
    • German Diplomacy: Germany will suspend conflict until I receive word from LX what he wants in the civil war.
    • Scandianvian Diplomacy: The Scandinavians will recognize German claims on Baltica in exchange for German recognition of Scandinavian claims on Eesti.
    • What did I say about free-for-alls?
    • I was under the impression they rebelled away? If they haven't then obviously my claims are not legit and will be renounced.
    • They had. Lx's just mad that we're making a move on "his" land. He's still prefering to ignore part of the first mod event, which is what caused the war to escalate in the first place. Or at least what caused the mod event escalating the war. Because you can't just ignore what you don't like.
    • He has every reason to be mad. Not to mention that he stated he couldn't be here. Read the talk page, eh?
    • And it's not like you haven't taken any former Russian territory for yourself, eh? No you're totally innocent of profiting at Russia's expense.
    • And so, the revolution will spread south. Tremble in fear.

This move, long awaited by the poor, gains the government popular favour in the eyes of the people. Bavarian Prime Minister Josef Friedmann, arrives and travels the major cities of Brittannia including London, the capital York, Edinburgh, Dublin and as his last stop, Cardiff, where he held a speech and christened a monument near the Fisher's Wharf where the attack was conducted. The Kaiser of Germany also attended and had a speech as well, talking about unity in hard times but commented and praised the endurance of the Welsh people and all the peoples of the German Commonwealths in overcoming travesty.

In Khmer Koch, nothing happens. In Tanimbarkai, the war continues, with Tanimbarkai and its Australis allies making gains against the Sumban forces.
  • Anhalt (Vassal of Saxony: In a state of civil war): The Green Cross claims to have already saved many hundreds of lives, and pleads for governments and philanthropists tp give money. The Regency's forces suffer a complete turnaround from last year's gains, losing practically all they won before a stalemate sets in for winter.

1911

With the high support flowing to the Socialist side of the Russian Civil War, they begin to pull ahead. In multiple battles, the Equalists are defeated, with Socialist tanks being produced in greater numbers and quality to the Equalists - giving them a crucial edge. However, in areas of Moscow and Volograd, trenches have developed which has led to little progress by each side. Although the Equalists are threatening Novgorod, a Socialist offensive destroys any chance the Equalists had in taking the capital. With the fortunes looking up, the Russians begin to focus in the east and hope to bring the Far East Republic back into their fold, unless another nation invades it ...

Novgorod is the capital, not Moscow, even though is largest city. I switched Moscow and Novgorod, since It seems you meant for the offensive to be near capital ...

  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Elmo has done little on doctrine during his years in office but is said to be a good administrator, having hired many accountants and embarked on lavish art commissions in Avalon. While effective, he has proven to engage in heavy favoritism within the church government and installs his nephew as head of the Department of Theology and Doctrine in the Curia. His is said to be arrogant and often referes to himself in the third person, and when confronted with problems is often said to respond, "Elmo knows! Leave Elmo to Elmo's pressing business!". Rumors have also begun to criculate that his morality may not be in line with his high religious office. 
  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry, with the entire nation being solidly industrialized. The three major religions solidify their control over the entire country, with significant Russian Orthodox and Germanic minorities. The Scandinavians continue to expend their influence on Eesti saying that they'll extend Scandinavian protection to them to prevent the Equalists from taking control of their nations. The Scandinavians send the Eesti arms as supplies to help protect them from Equalist aggression. The rumored madness of Prime Bishop Elmo eliminates any chance of the Nordic Church joining the Apostolic Church for at least as long as Elmo is head of the church. "Mad Old Elmo" soon becomes a joke throughout Scandinavia.
  • Seeking to quell the threat of the Equalist menace in Russia, Imperium Africana's government publically announces that it is sending military forces to invade and occupy the Equalist held territories in Far East Russia, stating its reason as being to prevent the Equalists from establishing for themselves a permanent base from which to launch out additional forces to harm the fragile socio-political structure of the world. Half a million troops are mobilized and deployed to Siberia, and hundreds of tanks and aeroplanes are loaded onto transports and shipped off the war to begin their bloody work. Portions of the grand dreadnought fleet are detatched to assist the military in the invasion of Siberia. At home, the construction of additional tanks and aeroplanes continues, and the development of new types of heavy artillery begins in the arsenals of the Imperium. Ghafar Erza publishes another set of scientific papers, this time on general relativity and the equivalence principle, which are geared toward the Ethiopian and Orissan scientific communities. His work to advance the two nations' knowledge on time and space are hailed as groundbreaking achievements by his peers. The Emperor of Ethiopia continues his journey around the world, arriving in the capital of Baridi, where he praises the work of his viceroys in keeping the dominion in working order and increasing the land's productivity, as well as increasing petroleum production and refinement. Many Ethiopian historians believe that with the flourishment of the arts and science in the empire, they come to a common conclusion that Ethiopia has entered the Pax Aethiopica, or the "Ethiopian Peace". The empire is rich, powerful and secure, and there are no political troubles, corruption has been kept to an absolute minimum, and the nation has crush every threat to its power successfully while remaining strongly united in the face of adversity. Ethiopian subjects are making the most money their people ever have in their history. The lethal droughts that once ravaged their nation are now a forgone event remembered only in the history books, and the once tiny, primitive kingdom is a continent-spanning empire of great power status, which speaks one tongue, has one ruler, and possesses one people. The Ethiopian nation has come a far way from its former self, and many Ethiopians begin to celebrate their unity and accomplishments, seeking to enjoy their lot in life to the fullest.
    • Chinese Diplomacy: In order to prevent the opportunist Imperium Africana from exploiting Russia for obvious territorial reasons, China joins the war on the Far East Republic's side. She calls for all her allies and Russia's allies, Equalist or not, to prevent Imperium Africana from taking advantage or Russia's fragile condition.
    • Ethiopian Reponse: The Imperium politely requests the Chinese to stay out of the conflict. Ethiopia has no quarrel with the Gang Federation, but it sees the Chinese geo-political goals clearly.

    • I take it that your nations will be leaders, right?
    • @collie, yes our nations are leaders.
    • I know that Germany has an elected Equalist-Socialist government. We are not as radical as Italia or China, but we definitely are left winged.

  • The Italian Republic continues working in earnest to upgrade its military after decades of minor revolts that have caused some disorganization. The Yugoslav and Antilian Republics work heavily on upgrading their foundries and factories, both seek to become the primary production centre for the UER. The USAS, The Ecuatorean Republic, The Republic of Pacifico, The Republic of South East Asia and the City of Tsingapore all work heavily on their naval power. The Hungarian and Romanian Republic work on their economies while the Republics in the low countries work on their infrastructure as the minor revolts took a heavy toll there. The Republic of Australis expands 100,000 sq km into the centre of the continent.

  • Saxony (Member of the German Empire): Emperor Georg is crowned in the 5th of January with the Imperial, Saxon and Bavarian crowns. Just days after the coronation, he meets with top government officials, high-level diplomats and military leaders to discuss solutions to the "Anhalt problem". As a result of the meetings, both sides of the Civil War are contacted and asked to attend an Accord in Magdeburg early next year, presided over by the Emperor and the Primate of the Catholic Germans. The Left-led government starts a commission of enquiry to find ways to improve the Helthcare system for poorer people. The military is expanded, especially in numbers of armoured cars and airships. Research begins into creating a Saxon model of the "tanks" used by the Russians in their civil war. Saxon West Africa expands the maximum amount into the only remaining black territory open to them. The governor raises three battalions of "Schutztruppe", units with native soldiers and a mixture of native and European officers.

Modern dreadnought technologies continue to grow. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. Airstrips become a common sight. German dreadnoughts are sold to Britannia and Australis in a massive military upgrade of all the Commonwealth nations. Traine's inventions become more popular, especially the AC in Borneo and Afrika, and the polygraph becomes a widely used tool over the whole Empire. Germany continues to influence Baltica. In a landslide victory, the Imperial Reichstag ousts the Relativist Party after it was revealed the Party leader, Johan Rel, was planning a violent revolution. but thanks to lack of popular support and the excellent German Office of State Security, he was arrested and the entire party banned. In the special election, a supermajority from the Socialist-Equalist coalition wins the election. This new government declares that it will protect Russia if anyone tries to harm our allies in their terrible civil war. An offer of mutual defense and friendship is extended to China in efforts to mend relations and to protect our mutual ally, Russia.

  • Democratic 'Commonwealth of Albion: British and German ships reach the tiny island of Pure Science and bombard coastal defenses allowing the allied forces to take the beaches and begin toppling the maniacal rulers. In Britain, the Parliament in York votes to give women the vote as well as provide benefits to less fortunate members of society. This move, long awaited by the poor, gains the government popular favour in the eyes of the people. The Parliament also has an election where the Equalists gain the government and a new Prime Minister, Richard Saxon, is elected by popular vote. Britannai adopts Democratic instead of Imperial in public referendum, and also changes to the more national friendly Democratic Commonwealth of Albion.
  • Democratic 'Commonwealth of Afrika: Work continues on the railways and telegraph in the Saxon Administrative Region.

As China works on creating bigger and better ships, work begins on the newly-constructed Manchuria-class battleship. The Manchuria-Class Battleship, a dreadnought, is expected to by finished by 1913. In the meantime, the People's Air Force of China is founded. Originally operated as an extension of, interestingly enough, the navy, the Chinese Air Force becomes its own sect of the military. In response to Ethiopia's attack on the East Asian Republic, China declares war and joins on the East Asian side to prevent Ethiopia from exploiting Russia. China releases a statement declaring that they joined the war with a heavy heart and hope relations with Ethiopia are not soured by this incident. In the meantime, the military and economy increases.

  • Russian forces engage the Red Army, and Generals decide that the best course of action is to encircle the rebels and force their surrender, attack from the rear. The Russian cossack cavalry is ready for the assault, and in Volgograd takes the Red Army unaware, same happens in Astrakhan, as things happen. The Russian General Grigory Romanov, relative of the Belorussian ruling house, decides to use the tactic of the rolling barrage to change take advantage of the now-routine trench warfare tactics of artillery, wait, then attack, by having attack and artillery occur simultaneously. This is a great day for the Socialist forces, and the Bolshevik leadership has even more problems when they are forced to flee into A safehouse in their stronghold of OTL Yekaterinburg, and when the Mensheviks denounce all their tactics. With the Volgograd Red army destroyed, the Russian and Belorussian military moves to re-inforce Moscow, before using train lines to relieve Kiev of its siege. The railroads were the first priority of the Russian army to sieze control over, because if you control the railways, you can control the nation.  The OTL equivelant of the Ilya Muromets bomber is used to destroy the bolshevik lines, by dropping bombs right over their trenches, and using recon. However, Bolsheviks have captured some airplanes. Russia also rushes to the aid of the Far Eastern Republic, and the Russian Air force, armed with planes containing machine guns, wreak havoc over the Ethiopean force of Zeppelins.
  • Belorussia officially denounces the Bolshevik faction, and the Duma sends much of its military to aid Russia.
  • Eesti sends its small air force to bombard things.
  • Baltica uses some of its resources to help Russia, as the Bolshevik riots in their nation have almost become a revolution. However, it is small and the rioters did not get their hands on weapons.
    • They're independent, and you'll need to do more than just say that they instantly returned to you. This time I've got a five-year lead on you.
  • '​'The Mayan Empire continues trade. The Empire continues the construction of two canals - one in Boruca (Panama) and one in Mangue/Chorotega (Nicaragua). The government proceeds with caution in dealing with the new Equalist governments.

  • All states expand military. Despite not being Equalist, the Greater Reich makes a move in the name of supporting Russia. Troops and tanks are sent via naval bases in Kasodani to attack the invading Africans from stealing land that does belong to them at all. Theodor Rosenfeld calls out the Africans on being ruthless and evil imperialists. He defends Neu Berlin by stating that they do not exterminate races, and this brings forth massive nationalist feels from the people. The Kanadian Reichstag declares full support for the FER and Russia, and donates the most men and troops to the effort. Neu Germanica expands 32,000 sq km and Novomoskovsk expands 15,000 sq km. The plans for the Plains Lakota invasion are called off, and the Sioux vote is postponed. Tanks begin to be rolled out en masse, as well as dreadnoughts and battleships. Airplanes are also used via launching bases in Neu Germanica to spot the Ethiopian lines. 
  • Stuff in the United Maharajya continues. Army buildup and economic development occur. The recent expansion of the Russian Civil War has left the United Maharajya with a dilemma - do they support their long time allies or do they support other allies which follow the same path of development and ideology. So currently the nation is left neutral. Dakshin Aprika expands by 64,000 km, too.

1912

The Equalists find themselves in all-out retreat. They head to the Far East Republic where their numbers are bolstered. However, although the civil war has left much of Russia in ruins, it has kickstarted its war industry and they become leaders of tank production and manufacture. They get a bonus for this (but I am too lasy to type up the bonus).

The hardline Equalists fall out of power in the Far East Republic. A new Equalist-Socialist government, like that of Germany, is founded. Vasily Zhitarev is elected the first Premier of the Far East Republic. He promises to preserve the rights of the various groups that live in the Far East Republic. The Yakuts, Evenks, Tungus and Chukchi all get representation in the new Far Eastern Parliament.

  • With the Equalist threat ended in Russia, Imperium Africana turns its eyes back home. The Equalists are shown to lack popular support, and thus, rather than move the troops back home, Imperial militias are formed to deal with the threat. Many citizens, outraged by the return of the Equalists who dare exploit the absense of the fighting men, arm themselves to deal with the threat. Pictures of the Emperor are sown into flags and hats, and bands of men and women shouting "God Save the Emperor" move to deal with the rebels. On the front, the troops are moved to Ethiopian Antillia, where they are preparing for arctic exerises. Many receive news of the rebellions in the Imperium, but are encouraged when they hear of their fellow countrymen's bravery in the face of the Equalist menace. The Emperor hears of the rebellion back home, and orders the formation of the Imperial Home Guard, an all-volunteer military force designed to deal with threats to the homeland while the troops are abroad.

They recommend creating a "National Healthcare System", which will augment the pre-existing "state hospital" system. The new "NHS" would allow poor and disadvantaged people to visit General Practitioners and Specialists free of charge. The Conservatives argue that such a scheme would be "the death of the medical proffession" as they allege that middle-class, and even stingy rich people could cheat the system to get free visits to GPs and Specialists when they could pay themselves. The Left actually listens to the concern, and proposes that the "NHS Levy" could be a percentage of income, and that it could be used by all members of society, regardless of class.

The Scandinavians officially vassalize Eesti, which they rename Estland, to protect from Equalist invasion.
  • Premier Vasily Zhitarev is supposedly found to be on the payroll of Novogrod, and General Nikita Zakhaev launches a coup along with a small cabal of his closest supporters. He pledges to continue, and better the reforms of the corrupt Premier. A civil war quickly erupts as people find themselves being forced to take sides. Unfortunately for the Premier, with the General controlling most of the meager military might of the Far East Republic his private forces are quickly overwhelmed. Zhitarev is hanged and Zakhaev takes control of the nation.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Industrialization continues to deepen. Automobiles begin to be imported and Teushen Yijich industrialists beging trying to reverse-engineer them, and the military begins experimenting with tanks in hopes of buidling amphiobious attack vehicles. The royal family remains an object of fascination. Princess Ælfgifu gives birth to her first child - a son who is named Prince Pelagius. Germanich'hgichin'Selknman'i'Mayapan'iAfricanich'i'Pugh'iTuch'huelpe'i'a'i'i'i. 
  • Yagich Rafael: Industrialiazation deepens as peace reigns. Queen Scholastica is looked on as the mother of the nation and some even begin claling her the greater than her father Gavin Peter. 
  • Attican Union: Industrialization deepens. A mysterious Grammephone recording is delivered to the main newspaper in Madoc and Praxedes on the Sea, when played, it lasts lest than a minute. A voice, widely recognized but thought dead, intonees, "I am Eris, we have returned, this time you cannot stop us."
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Elmo's grandiosity becomes ever more apparent as more of his cronies are installed in high positions, including a Tojikan aristocrat named Takeshi Kaga who is made Chairman of the Church Treasury - usually a position reserved for career priests, but Elmo says that business sense is needed in finances. However, Chairman Kaga is rumored to have many connections to organized crime in Tojiko and it is rumored that he is laundering money to pay for "less than moral activities" from the church treasury. Elmo often throws lavish parties with many women present, and it is thought that he is operating a prostitution ring using the the treasury, but nothing can be proved.   
  • Praetorate of Eternal Matter: Praetor Pythagoras devotes his energies to industrialization and is building a steel mill. However, he walks an increasingly fine line between the hard-liners in his government who want a more radical Pure Science state, and his own moderate interests, Hence he gives many speeches praising the old Pure Science regime and "Our heroes Icarus, Athena and Eris" 
  • Unidentified Terrorists: A ship sailing into Iqauluit harbor in Nunavut expolodes with great force as it docks. The next day, a letter to the editor is hand delivered to the door of Nunavut's main newspaper by a messenger, who hands the letter to the secretary and then immeditate shoots himself in the head. I reads "The fire has returned, and let this be a warning to any natives of our hemispher who accept the yoke of the old world powers - We are the Brotherhood of Eris and we will not be stopped again."
  • Bayern (DCGE Member-state): The state of Bayern builds its military along with all her colonies (Borneo). Borneo expands infrastructure and continues industry. Bavaria continues to experience a baby boom. Cities like Munchen and Bamberg grow as people flock to the cities. Work in the Imperial Capital continues at a breakneck pace. The German Navy is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". The German Navy embraces newer battleship technologies, with the Kiaser Erburt and Kaiseren Elisabeth constructed, easily two of the largest battleships in the world. Modern dreadnought technologies continue to grow. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. Airstrips become a common sight. German dreadnoughts are sold to Britannia and Australis in a massive military upgrade of all the Commonwealth nations. Traine's inventions become more popular, especially the AC in Borneo and Afrika, and the polygraph becomes a widely used tool over the whole Empire. After years of influence, Baltica finally joins Germany as the Democratic Commonwealth of Baltica.  Baltica hold elections next year and full parliament represetation occurs. The situation in Russia is monitored closely. The DCGE quickly recognizes the legitimate government established in the Far East, but pushes for co-operation with Russia. The Social-Equalist Party continues to grow in support, with a desire to limit Imperialist ambitions around the globe. The Green Cross travels to Nunavut to adminster aid and to help those harmed by the cowardly terrorist attacks. In Munchen and other large German cities, the massive population boom as led to more and more skyscrapers being constructed. Munchen is being refered to as "the city of a million spires" due in part to the old churches including the now 400 year old Munchen Cathedral, but mostly due to the towering presence of skyscrapers.
  • Democratic Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black (100,000) as more and more settlers arrive in the nation. The nation continues to make money from its jewelry exports, which are some of the best in the world. The Australian navy is upgraded. The military expands. Commonwealth Electric expands. More airstrips are built as part of a plan to streamline Bavarian and Saxon adminstrated regions of Australis. Australis with Saxon Australis, declares war on Sumba. Australis adopts Democratic instead of Imperial in public referendum. The Social-Equalists continue to grow in popularity amongst the people. Skyscrapers pop up around the major city centres.
  • Democratic Commonwealth of Albion: In Britain, the Parliament in York votes to give women the vote as well as provide benefits to less fortunate members of society. This move, long awaited by the poor, gains the government popular favour in the eyes of the people. The Parliament also has an election where the Equalists gain the government and a new Prime Minister, Richard Saxon, is elected by popular vote. Britannai adopts Democratic instead of Imperial in public referendum, and also changes to the more national friendly Democratic Commonwealth of Albion. The Social-Equalists continue to grow in popularity amongst the people. Albion expands industry. Word of the potential corruption of the Apostolic Church reaches the Welsh State Security Department after numerous eye witness reports of Bishop Elmo having solicitous relations with women prostitutes, which is illegal in Wales. A full investigation is being launched. After many years, The Yorkshire Tower (OTL Big Ben) is completed in York.
    • The UER asks Albion to back off from Pure Science and the UER naval base on the island. If offers to absorb the island into the UER mandate and to govern its peoples fairly and more justly than their current rulers.
    • LOL. I'm sorry. I forgot to remove that part, you needn't worry, Albion has already vacated the area. I simply forgot to remove that from my post.
    • The area is being folded back into the Attican Union after its defeat in the war. We will allow the UER base to remain there in exchange for a land lease and a guarantee not to use the base against Attican interests. Commandante Lemming (talk) 21:05, December 13, 2013 (UTC)
  • Democratic Commonwealth of Afrika: Work continues on the railways and telegraph in the Saxon Administrative Region. Local militia units are raised to defend the region from desert nomad rebels in the Sahara to the south. Missionaries of the Holy Wettin Missionary Order continue to proseletyse and provide schooling and medical care. Hospitals and medical care continue to grow. Oil rigs and derricks begin to be commonplace. Samuel Exxon founds Exxon Motor Petroleum. Exxon Oil expands as the German need for oil grows. Afrika purchases numerous airships and airplanes as a part of the Commonwealth upgrades. Airstrips pop up more and more. After many years of non-expansion, Afrika expands 45,000 sq km to the south into the desert. Afrika adopts Democratic instead of Imperial in public referendum. The Social-Equalists continue to grow in popularity amongst the people. Skyscrapers begin to dot the Afrikan skyline. Afrika (Carthage) expands 100,000 sq km into the interior.
  • The Russians have pushed back Bolshevik forces from every direciton. The Russians' new model of tank, the T-14 (OTL T-18) helps them immensely, the Bolshevik forces, and their small amount of tanks left, cannot hope to withstand the now largest and most advanced military force on the globe. The Ekaterinburg garrison finally falls, and the Bolshevik leadership, all but the illusive Davidov himself, is captured, and put in prison to be tried for treason. The Tsar, Alexi I, officially grants amnesty to all Bolshevik fighters that surrender within a week, and, as if on cue, the fighting stops, and a coronation ceremony for both Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and The Baltics occurs. With that, Russia sends word to the leadership of the Far Eastern Republic, along with many tanks on the claimed borders, with thanks for keeping the Far East without conflict, and ask them politely, to recognize the one, true, legitimate Russian government, protector of all slavs, peoples of SIberia, the North, and the Caucasus, and allowing the Far East Republic to become the Far East Autonomous Oblast, abeit with diminished borders, if they stop their claims to independance, and rejoin the fold. The "small" tank force sent to guard the messengers (they can't be too careful after all the war) was in no way part of their decision to recognize Russia as their legitimate government, and accept Russia's terms. Actually, who am I kidding? It was a large part of that decision. In any case the FER becomes one with Russia once more, and the Baltics are thanked for their help, and reconstruction begins across the nation, creating many, many jobs, and tank forces and aeroplanes are sent to the borders with Baltica. Their governments are alerted that the Russian Tsar is coming for his coronation. Rumors begin that the current Tsar plans to restore the elected monarchy ended by his grandfather Ivan and continued by his father Mihail.
    • Germany congratulates Russia in emerging from its civil war. On a side note, Baltica, Ukraine and Esti rebelled away in a mod event years ago, since then Germany has influenced Baltica. They are currently a German Commonwealth now. (don't get hostile. I followed the rules five years of influence. You don't control these regions anymore)
    • Can you please stop posting in your own little world? I doubt that Pita wants to be absorbed by you.
    • Wait, are you telling me that I can't end a civil war you started to gain pieces of my territory? What should I do, propose to create a new rule banning mods from destroying other empires for no reason other than their own personal gain? I thought that that was against the rules, or at least unwritten rules since PM1. It seems to me that you are going to great lengths to make Russia emerge as weak as possible, going out of your way to coerce Pita into taking the Far East and deprive Russia of the Baltic, esentially making it landlocked and dependent on your Scandinavia navy for any shipping. Despite what you told me in chats, I thought we had an understanding, but I guess actions speak louder than words.
    • I went through the proper protocol for vassalizing territory. You just assume that you never lost it at all. It seems to me that you're attempting to retain control of as much of OTL Russia as possible for the sole purpose of controlling it. You can have the Ukraine back, as well as Belorussia. Your Kazakh vassal never left the Empire. Russia is maybe weakened but it isn't weak. I'll make sure that any potential duties on Russian trade are next to nil.
    • From my POV it seems as though this entire farce of a civil war was created for the sole purpose of you stealing Baltica away from me for the second time. Baltica was never my vassal, they were under personal union, and are mine by rights. Don't deny it, the first thing you did in that whole farce is say, for no reason, and without warning, that all Russia's territory is no longer Russia's and that you are now influencing Baltica to join you, who, for some reason are not dealing with the same disorder are Russia (if the Bolsheviks are organized enough to lead a rebellion in Russia, they are organized enough to do so in all Russia's lands), utilizing my announced editing irregularity to your advantage and try to attain Baltica by seemingly legitimate means, even though you created the circumstances that allowed you to do so in the first place, for the sole reason of gaining Baltica.
    • From my point of view I'm finally telling "no" to a spoiled brat whose had the whole game bending over backward for him since the Caliphate fell. You won't be continuing your Russiawank here. If you don't like it then you can make like Muscovy's player and leave.
  • All states expand military. With the intent of establishing a military/naval base in the Oriental Ocean, the navy uses the recently completed canals to reach some small islands in the area, including Wake Island (Kaiser Wilhelm's Island), Midway Island (Kaiser Ludwig's Island), and Johnston Atoll (Kaiser Friedrich Islands). The Marshall Islands are also claimed as the Bismarkk Islands. Neu Berlin also asks to by Guam from the Japanese. Complete sovereignty is declared over the entirety of Terra Australis (Antarctica), as Heidreitsch and his team were the first to arrive at the South Pole and claim the land for Neu Berlin. They also reach the summit of Mount Everest, which is hailed as a great feat in history. They measure it to be exactly 29,000 feet, or 8848 meters. They leave the flag at the summit, as well as other valuables. Heidreitsch, now known as the Daredevil by everyone and a hero to everyone too, announces his intent to fly across the Atlantic Ocean with no stops. This will be done next year, when he shall sail from Vinland to London and back. Theodor Rosenfeld gives him an award. Neu Germanica expands 64,000 sq km and Novomoskovsk expands 15,000 sq km.
    • President Shibusawa Eiichi of the Republic of Himekaidou kindly declines in selling any of Micronesia to Neu Berlin. (By the way, I originally expanded into Micronesia long ago (from 1715 until 1724) with my Tōkaidō (now named Himekaidou) colony, so some of the islands you've claimed in Micronesia is interfering with mine.)
    • Mate, I will direct your attention to 1862, when a Saxon expedition explicitly claimed a certain sector (between 20*W and 40*E)' 'of Antarktis, known as Kaiser Karl Land. It even has a governor. Other Saxon expeditions have returned there since. We will recognise your claim over the remainder, but our claim predates yours by a good 53 years. Sincerely, Callumthered (talk) 02:19, December 13, 2013 (UTC)
    • Could you both just specify which islands you guys haven't taken? I'll remove whatever islands you guys have claimed already. Thanks. ~ S
      • ​So I claimed all Antarctican land between 20*West and 40*East. Basically the bit of Antarctica which lies directly South of Africa. Callumthered (talk
      • Ah. I'll claim the rest of it, then.
    • I have taken all of Micronesia and parts of Melanesia (mainly portions of OTL Papua New Guinea). Scan, I think, took the rest of Polynesia and the rest of Melanesia. -Kogasa
    • ... So I'm not infringing on any islands.
  • ​Saxony (DCGE Member-State): The Left government manages to pass its NHS scheme, and the NHS levy (a percentage of taxable income) which will fund it. The nation improves economically. Airships are really quite commonplace now. An economic investigation shows that food prices have dropped since airships came to be used for transporting goods. Saxonisch is a compulsary second-language in all schools, and some universities begin offering courses solely in Saxonisch. The Left-led government passes a law ensuring that Africans, aborigines and people of mixed ancestry have equal opportunity in the imperial and colonial civil services, as well as in the military. Saxon West Africa expands the maximum amount into the only remaining black territory open to them. Saxon Australis expands the maximum amount into the black, spurred on by rumours of more gold. Tanimbarkai occupies the 30% of Sumba which it took last year. The two "nations" in Anhalt co-exist peacefully, except for the odd suicide bomb.
  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity replaces steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. We establish a constitutional monarchy. We become filthily advanced. Most factories now use electricity and coal and oil electricity plants are built. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We begin to industrialize quicker than usual as large money, effort and labour is put into the movement. As a result, the economy grows quickly due to government stimulation projects, such as the construction of airstrips, better docks and asphalt roads. We ask for tank plans from China, who have been our allies since the 18th Century.
  • Myanmar D: Can China continue our alliance?
    • The UER offers Myanmar plans for tanks in return for an aliiance.
    • Chinese D: We gave you tank plans a year or two ago.
  • The Hellenic Equalist Republic: The HER government continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic Peninsula to spurt the economy on. In Cyprus and Crete, cloth factories and paper mills are built and in the colonies, hospitals and health care continue to be widespread. In Constantinople and the surrounding areas, artillery begins being built and is placed at both the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack. The HER continues to expand both its economy and its military. Artillery becomes more widespread and is used to protect the Union, as well as tanks and planes which are slowly introduced into the armies.
  • The Egyptian Equalist Republic: continues to expand its army and navy, as well as its economy. It expands by 40,000 sq km. Tanks and planes are slowly introduced into the army, as well as artillery, which is situated around major cities.
  • The Tamanian Equalist Republic: continues expanding its military and economy. The new government aggressively expands infrastructure and begins to develop the oil industry, and exports to other UER republics in an attempt to make Tamanian oil a staple within the UER. Tanks and planes begin to be introduced, as well as artillery.
  • The Beninese Equalist Republic: reforms and expands its army and navy, as well as begins rudimentary railway and steel and glass building. It also begins to build oil rigs. It expands by 40,000 sq km. Tanks and planes begin to be introduced along with artillery.
  • The Italian Republic continues working in earnest to upgrade its military after decades of minor revolts that have caused some disorganization. The Yugoslav and Antilian Republics work heavily on upgrading their foundries and factories, both seek to become the primary production centre for the UER. The USAS, The Ecuatorean Republic, The Republic of Pacifico, The Republic of South East Asia and the City of Tsingapore all work heavily on their naval power. The Hungarian and Romanian Republic work on their economies while the Republics in the low countries work on their infrastructure as the minor revolts took a heavy toll there. The Republic of Australis expands 100,000 sq km into the centre of the continent. The UER holds its first election across all of its territories, the co-ordinated effort takes thousands and thousands of Italian Liras but results in the election of the 500 members of the UER parliament which is located in Athens as a central location and also as a tribute to the birthplace of democracy. The UER begins heavy investment into its researching and development industries with materials and electricity being heavily researched. The UER also sends an expedition to Antarktis, and claims from 45 West to 90 East with the Republics of Pacifico, Italia, Australis and Aymara all claiming a portion of that area. 
  • China: Anling Er expands his theory of relativity. Meanwhile, the neon discharge tube is developed for advertising. The military and economy both expand. A paper trail to the independence movement from Ethiopia is discovered. Thusly, China secretly funds the West African rebels.
  • Korea: Pro-government and pro-Equalist propaganda is produced by the Korean government as it reaffirms its alliance and vassalship under the Dengyu Union. The military and economy is expanded.
  • Vietnam: The Empire of Vietnam expands its military and economy.
  • Gang Federation: More automobiles are produced for the general public while the economy and military both expand. The nation expands by 96,000 sq km.
  • Imperium Africana and its dominions gear up for yet another uprising, this time identifying the rebels as the desendants of those natives that fled the country and trained to return and retake their lands. The Imperial Twelfth Corps is deployed to begin combating the rebel forces that have infiltrated the dominions of Mali and Nigeria, and spreading rumors of an attempt separate from the Imperium. A tank depot of the Imperial Ethiopian Army falls into the hands of one of the rebel armies, and they begin to build tanks within the confines of the depot. However, the lack of materials and manpower for the rebels forces them to decrease the size of their forces in exchange for having the luxury to field tanks. The Imperial Home Guard rallies around the city of Bamako, and begins its war against the rebel armies. In Nigeria, another Home Guard army runs into a large rebel force outside of the city of Kano, where the rebels have managed to gain a foothold in the region. The Siege of Kano begins, and artillery units begin to bombard the city once the Ethiopian population has been evacuated by the few remaining authorities left in the city limits. The noble house of Sirak, known throughout Ethiopia for their role in the steel industry, as well as the ammunition and armament sectors, announce that they have developed a heavy gun that can hit a city more than 40 miles away from the warzone. The commander of the Home Guard forces around Kano quickly requests the usage of the gun in the siege. The Imperial Army moves quickly to assemble a tank army after hearing of the rebels' capture of a tank depot. Other dominions seeking to save their allies, send troops to the warfront, showing solidarity in Ethiopia's time of need. Propaganda of Ethiopia depicted as a manned lion, surrounded by many younger ones begins to circulate throughout the Imperium. The caption states: "The Imperium needs men! Angola, Darfur, New Borona, Nunavut, and the others, all answer the call. Helped by the Young Lions, the Old Lion defies his foes." The poster spurs tens of thousands of young men throughout the Imperium to fight for the Emperor. Crosses are painted on uniforms and inside of helmets, Bibles are strapped to backpacks, and blessings carved into guns before tens of thousands of soldiers chanting teachings of Chaudism march to war for the Emperor. Ghafar Erza continues to publish his scientific papers, this time beginning to state his desire to research the atom and learn of its secrets. The Emperor personally furnishes all of his needed equipment and personnel, and visits the scientist day to day to check up on his work and see if he can learn anything personally.
  • Nunavut expands by 20,000 km inland, moving north along the shoreline. Industrial support continues to flow in from the rest of the Imperium supporting growth in Nunavut. Wadab is expanded by 60,000 km pushing westward across Neu Berliner territories. Taimaini expands by 60,000 km on the coast, with new factories and power generators built in the major cities of the territory. Baridi expands by 60,000 km with additional profits coming from increased oil production, and the lack of foreign competition allows the Ethiopians there continue to expand at a faster pace. New Borona expands 60,000 km inward, focusing on northward expansion. The military, economy and infrastructure of all territories are expanded. Transportation within the empire continues to expand, along with electrical output in the major cities throughout the Imperium. All dominions, hearing of their fellow dominions' time of strife, send tens of thousands of their men to aid their Ethiopian brothers-in-arms.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade. The Empire continues the construction of two canals - one in Boruca (Panama) and one in Mangue/Chorotega (Nicaragua). The government proceeds with caution in dealing with the new Equalist governments. Immigration is limited. The Royal Science Academy continue studying the 'steam turbine', as well as experimenting with crude oil. Electricity becomes a popular amenity in some more wealthy provinces. A new type of clothing becomes available, work pants with metal rivets to keep the fabric from wearing (OTL Blue Jeans). The Juun family continues the construction of the battleships, as well as some new types of military ships. Ahaulel Autos continues producing autos under Tepeu Baleta, utilizing pneumatic tires. Ahaulel begins producing a new type of auto, an 'autobike'. Ahtohil Motors continues mass-producing autos. A popular auto becomes the tractor, which reduces time and increases efficiency on farms. The border with the Apache Praetorate is closed completely. Influence from the Apostolic Church continues to grow in Lakin. More branch lines are created for the railroad, connecting more large markets. As a result of the expanding rail network, the economy booms. The Juun family continues improving the national public school system and their railroad holdings. Glass, steel and concrete become common building materials in the northern provinces. Trade throughout New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia.  More universities are established in lower class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca. Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces.
  • All states expand military. Shit continues to go down across the lands of the Reich and some scientific teams are sent to Terra Australis. Heidreitsch makes his transatlantic flight this year, the first of its kind. Once he returns to Neu Berlin, he is given a hero's welcome and another medal by Theodor Rosenfeld. Neu Germanica expands 64,000 sq km and Novomoskovsk expands 15,000 sq km. People continue to arrive in River Lakota and Ostkasodan, and Sioux who are within the borders of other states move to the Sioux state.
  • The United Maharajya and its associated states and vassals all expand militarily and economically. Increased trade helps boost their economies. The successful transaction of land provdes a buge popularity boost for the government and it is certain re-election will occur. The nation begins to feel greater animosity to states which cannot leave Russia in peace and therefore it begins to mobilise its armed forces, preparing to counter threats. They are tired of the bloody civil war and may intervene to help out their working brothers.

1915

PMII1915
A terrible winter storm at the end of the year blankets Scandinavia, Scotland, the Netherlands and Northern Germany in several metres of snow. The Alps, also, are covered by twice the usual snowfall. Northern Europe struggles to function in the face of this storm and brace for the meltwaters next year which will likely trigger severe flooding. Scientists studying the storm and snow level predict that Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Paris, Orleans, Florence, Magdeburg, Munich, Olso and Stockholm will be very hard hit by the meltwaters.
  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Majorca, Barcelona, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies improve and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Portugal, and the other Iberian states. Meanwhile in Castille, Alfonso XX dies, and having only illegitimate issue, is succeeded by his brother Fernando, who is crowned as "By the Grace of God, Fernando IX, King of Castille, Toledo, Jaén, Murcia, Cantabria, Duke of Huete, Palencia, Pastrana, Peñafiel, Soría and Villalba, Marchess of Auñón, La Adrada, Malagón, Count of Alcaudete, Bañares, Castrojeriz and Villalobos". Meanwhile, Sofala expands by 7600 sq km.
  • Brasil expands by 57,400 sq km. Railroads continue being built in Brasil, and efforts to connect some existing railroads to each other are made. Meanwhile, Maxixe music, which already existed since the mid 19th century, becomes more popular as music recordings generally become more popular in Brasil.
  • Argentina's economy improves. Meanwhile, the two post-A'Asabist states within Rio da Prata's borders are annexed. Meawhile, Leão Ortiz de Rosas' Free Trade Party changes its name to Anti-Equalist Party. Meanwhile, the Protectionist Party starts to weaken. Meanwhile, a federal election is held to elect the member of the 3rd Argentine Cortes. As in the last two elections, no party manages to gain a majority. Another falling-out between the Labour and the Protectionists happens, and Carvalho resigns again. Leão Ortiz de Rosas, as leader of the party with the most seats in the Cortes, becomes Prime-Minister again. Parallel with the election, a federal referendum is held. The proposed alteration to the Constitution, to change the start date of Senators' terms from 1 July to 1 January, passes in all states and is carried. Late on the year, the Agência Argentina de Censos e Estatísticas is created.
  • France's economy improves and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, propaganda aimed to legitimize the current government continues to be spread on France. Meanwhile, Hugues de Châtillon, son of Guigues de Châtillon, heir of the County of La Marche, marries Urraca Garcia de Lara, daughter of Octavia of León and Garcia IV of Portugal/Philip IX of France.
  • Mutapa builds up its military.
  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Industrialization continues to deepen and the military is expanded. Princess Pharaildis, still unmarried, causes a small scandal by writing a letter to the editor of the Ona Yagich Gazette demanding the right to vote for women. A ship explodes in the port at Tueshen Yijich, and the Brotherhood of Eris claims responsibility. The Selk'nam offer again to buy New Judea from Maharajya.
    • The United Maharajya accepts the transaction, and in return offers more military support and the opportunity to build more bases in the Selk'nam to keep within strking distance of the rogue state of Patagoshina.
    • The Selk'nam accept,
  • Yagich Rafael: Industrialisation deepens as  new Prime Minister James Klo'picjichin (Prime Minister James the Third)  believes stongly that Yagich Rafael must make itself "the greatest Christian civilization of the Indian Ocean". He sends ships out to see if any unoccupied land can be found to settle - though a fools errand. (Does anyone own the Chagos archipelego, OTL Diego Garcia? ... if not I'll claim it now).
    • Yes. I think it is Ethiopia or Orissa.
  • Attican Union: Queen Urraca dies and is succeeded by her son Diego. Prime Minister Willie focuses his attention on rebuilding Yagich Gavin (formerly the Praetorate of Pure Science) and re-unifying the nation, but is hampered by a series of explosions as the local Pure Science supporters become more active. It is unknown if Eris remains in the country or is elsewhere.
  •  Praetorate of Eternal Matter: Praetor Pythagoras decides to seek more engagement with the world and seeks to tour Germany and Scandinavia as a gesture of goodwill. However, there are many concerns that the "Erisites" within the government are growing more powerful than Pythagoras' moderate faction. 
  • Apostolic Church: Prime Bishop Elmo's debauchery becomes more apparent as more and more opulent parties are thrown, and rumors are that the treasury is running low. Elmo has noticably gained weight and often seen in public unkempt and somewhat dazed. Large amounts of Coca Brythonica are imported from De Mor Tir and is its said that he "enjoys the drink less than responsibly - often taking it mixed with absinthe". Several women are rumored to have had children by Elmo, and one young priest of 22 years old - rumored to be his illegitimate son from his old post in Yagich Chongat Yagich - is surprisingly "directly appointed" Archbishop of Cardiff - despite Elmo not technically having the authority to appoint local bishops. In September, the Avalon correspondent of Ona Yagich Gazette is somehow able to sneak into Elmo's palace dressed as a priest and pretends to be a personal servant to Elmo. The next week he publishes an exlcusive in which he claims to have seen with his own eyes the Prime Bishop "engaged in unspeakable acts with what I can only call concubines - a thing I thought was confined to ancient Roman days of Caligula". He prints several sandalous quotes from both Elmo and his mistresses, describing a scene of unabashed hedonism. To top it all off, the top headline of the newspaper - in huge letters - is one quote from one of the women. It simply reads, "TICKLE ME, ELMO!"  
    • ​I'm sorry, that quote ... DYING. Send help to Sydney!Scandinator (talk)
  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry, with the entire nation being solidly industrialized. The three major religions solidify their control over the entire country, with significant Russian Orthodox and Germanic minorities. The temporary Scandinavian protectorate on Eesti ends, with the nation being returned to Russia.
  • Bayern (DCGE Member-state): The state of Bayern builds its military along with all her colonies (Borneo). Borneo expands infrastructure and continues industry. Bavaria continues to experience a baby boom. Cities like Munchen and Bamberg grow as people flock to the cities. Work in the Imperial Capital continues at a breakneck pace. The German Navy is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". The German Navy embraces newer battleship technologies, with the Kiaser Erburt and Kaiseren Elisabeth constructed, easily two of the largest battleships in the world. Modern dreadnought technologies continue to grow. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. Airstrips become a common sight. German dreadnoughts are sold to Britannia and Australis in a massive military upgrade of all the Commonwealth nations. Traine's inventions become more popular, especially the AC in Borneo and Afrika, and the polygraph becomes a widely used tool over the whole Empire. Baltica elects representatives to the Baltica General Convention and send representatives to the German Commonwealth's capital of Bamberg. In Munchen and other large German cities, the massive population boom as led to more and more skyscrapers being constructed. Munchen is being refered to as "the city of a million spires" due in part to the old churches including the now 400 year old Munchen Cathedral, but mostly due to the towering precense of skyscrapers. A new type of music begins to gain some poularity, brought from the Commonwealth of Afrika. This type of music becomes called "jazz". While the music is a new sound, many begin to approve and other variations like the "Swing" begin. The 1915 World's Fair gets going in Vienna. Technological highlights from across the German realms as well as from the far flung lands in the Orient and in Antilla. The first ever Jazz festival is kicked off during this time, highlighting the new cultural sensation.
    • You got a World's Fair going on in Vienna this year.
  • Democratic Commonwealth of Australis: Expands rapidly into the black (100,000) as more and more settlers arrive in the nation. The nation continues to make money from its jewelry exports, which are some of the best in the world. The Australian navy is upgraded. The military expands. Commonwealth Electric expands. More airstrips are built as part of a plan to streamline Bavarian and Saxon adminstrated regions of Australis. Australis with Saxon Australis, declares war on Sumba. Australis adopts Democratic instead of Imperial in public referendum. The Social-Equalists continue to grow in popularity amongst the people. Skyscrapers pop up around the major city centres.  A new type of music begins to gain some poularity, brought from the Commonwealth of Afrika. This type of music becomes called "jazz". While the music is a new sound, many begin to approve and other variations like the "Swing" begin.
  • Democratic Commonwealth of Albion: British and German ships reach the tiny island of Pure Science and bombard coastal defenses allowing the allied forces to take the beaches and begin toppling the maniacal rulers. In Britain, the Parliament in York votes to give women the vote as well as provide benefits to less fortunate members of society. This move, long awaited by the poor, gains the government popular favour in the eyes of the people. The Parliament also has an election where the Equalists gain the government and a new Prime Minister, Richard Saxon, is elected by popular vote. Britannai adopts Democratic instead of Imperial in public referendum, and also changes to the more national friendly Democratic Commonwealth of Albion. The Social-Equalists continue to grow in popularity amongst the people. Albion expands industry. After many years, The Yorkshire Tower (OTL Big Ben) is completed in York. The Welsh pass a mandate, for the first time in government history, to step in the Apostalic Church and remove Bishop Elmo, part of the reason is it was revealed he raped the Prime Minister's daughter.
    • That is messed up! Even I wasn't going to go THAT far! :-P Commandante Lemming (talk) 21:44, December 13, 2013 (UTC)
    • There. Is that better? I wanted to have a good cause to get rid of this fool.Trust Me, I'm The Doctor (talk)
    • No. Please put it back the other way - Elmo is a sicko and I totally buy that he would do something that extreme. I just wasn't expecting that. Plus, I don't buy Elmo embezzling funds - he's not that competent.  Commandante Lemming (talk) 21:50, December 13, 2013 (UTC)
    • LOL. OK, I thought it was fitting that he'd rape. He is a sicko. Sorry if it's too much. Trust Me, I'm The Doctor (talk)
    • No worries - and unfortunately stuff like that happened in real history so it would happen in realistic alternate history. Commandante Lemming (talk) 22:10, December 13, 2013 (UTC)
  • Democratic Commonwealth of Afrika: Work continues on the railways and telegraph in the Saxon Administrative Region. Local militia units are raised to defend the region from desert nomad rebels in the Sahara to the south.

Afrika (Carthage) expands 100,000 sq km into the interior. Jazz music is born and takes off in Afrika and in the other commonwealths.
    • How are you expanding 100k km when the rules state you cannot do so?
    • Forgive me! What do you mean? I'm advanced enough to. I'm confused. If you can explain to me where I'm wrong I'll correct it. According to the industrialization chart I can expand 16x my normal rate, so I should be able to.
    • That is for colonies and dominions my friend. So if your maximum colonial expansion is 8000 km then that will be multiplied by 16 and give you 128,000 km expansion for all your colonies. If your nations are dominions, this expansion can be used to expand it - but it cannot be added onto the existing 20,000 km expansion for nations at this time. It's either one or the other.
    • i get it now. I think I've corrected it. Thank you.
  • The Far East Republic politely declines offers by the Russians to be re-absorbed into their empire. Instead, they dissolve the Far East Republic and reform it into the Greater Siberian Empire, with General Zakhaev taking responsibility and duty of the Emperor. His first major act is the draft a military, as well as submit a nonaggression treaty to the Russians for consideration.
  • Nouvelle France: The nation of Nouvelle France begins expanding its industry to keep up with other more modernized nations. Traditional industries across our nation begin to be expanded by the use of more modern technology. In the east where fishing makes up a large portion of the region’s economy, newer practices are put into place to maximize fishing yields, and many smaller companies begin adopting newer equipment. The small amount of farming in this area, mostly consisting of banana and sugar harvesting along the coast, is encouraged to grow by the government, and government subsidies are provided to large businesses to help them adopt modern equipment and expand their plantations. Gold mining and timber industries are also slightly expanded, making use of small railroad systems between towns. In the central region the larger, more developed agricultural sector is also expanded, increasing production of rice and Demerara sugar. Mining of bauxite, gold and minerals continues as these regions begin to utilize railroad systems and other technological advances. Similarly in the western region mining of bauxite and other minerals grows steadily. Railroads begin to be readily expanded, funded by the government and private mining companies, helping to link up major metropolitan areas and industrial sectors. Transportation and shipping between these areas grows slightly. The nations army, numbering about 195,000 active personnel at any given time, and facilitating 1,500,000 personnel in reserve, begins growing and training to respond at a moments notice. Fortifications begin to be built along our territory north of Nea Lefkosia, including a moderately sized fort to protect the region’s capital and harbor. The fort begins construction immediately, with the intention of being completed within the next few years. In the meantime several divisions of infantry, including a reconnaissance division and a logistics division, are stationed in the area, alongside a small fleet of naval ships in the harbor, in case a situation arises requiring mobilization across the sea to the north. Similar fortifications are planned along major towns lining our western and southern border, but are delayed due to thick jungle and weather plaguing construction. Blueprints begin to be drafted for a new class of battleships to replace the ones inherited from the French and their colonial ports, and is expected to be approved next year. In the meantime resources are put aside to expand the nation’s cruiser and dreadnought fleet, and new ships are distributed along the coast.
    • Uttarshina is looking to increase trading and alliance links in the region and are hoping whether Nouvelle France would be interested in signing extensive trading pacts so both nations can flourish economically? We are also interested in joint military exercises and we can help kickstart the Nouvelle France's naval program if wished.
    • Nouvelle France: We accept you offer of a trade agreement, and hope to grow economically together in the future. We also accept your offer of joint military exercises and hope to mutually improve our defense capabilities.
  • Saxony (DCGE Member-state): Implementaion of the NHS scheme is paused for the year as authorities foruc on the snow and flooding disaster. Citizens of Magdeburg are ordered to evacuate to higher ground and the military is sent in to assist, to stop looting, and to force people to leave. The Primate too leaves the city for Dresden. Emergency evacutation centres are set up in army barracks and monasteries, staffed by the Green Cross. Saxon West Africa expands the maximum amount into the only remaining black territory open to them. Saxon Australis expands the maximum amount into the black, spurred on by rumours of more gold. Tanimbarkai begins rebuilding the 30% of Sumba which it took last year. The two "nations" in Anhalt co-exist peacefully, except for the odd suicide bomb.
  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity replaces steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. We establish a constitutional monarchy. We become filthily advanced. Most factories now use electricity and coal and oil electricity plants are built. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We begin to industrialize quicker than usual as large money, effort and labour is put into the movement. As a result, the economy grows quickly due to government stimulation projects, such as the construction of airstrips, better docks and asphalt roads. After discovering tank plans from a letter from Beijing in 1912, we begin constructing tanks. The governmental letter organizer is fired for forgetting this. We construct a small tank, named the Rangoon-15, whose advantage is mobility and disadvantage is firepower and armor.
  • The Rokkaku Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation. Railways continue to be built.

The largest tank battle in history is fought outside of the city of Bamako, where the rebel forces, tied down to the tank depot the captured the other year and unwilling to let go of, make their final stand outside of the city. More than 350 medium rebel tanks prepare to combat more than 560 Imperial tanks. One side sit the advanced and state of the art military machines of the Emperor, and on the other sit 350 poor-made, shoddy, and ill-equipped rebel vehicles, hastely built and manned improperly. The Imperial forces destroy most of the rebel force, routing tens of thousands of rebel soldiers as Ethiopian troops storm into the city of Bamako, killing every rebel they find, man, woman and child. The victory is praised throughout the empire, with millions of Ethiopian subjects praising the slaughter of the rebel forces of Bamako. The siege of Kano continues. Thousands of rebels abandon their posts and flee the country seeking asylum elsewhere.
  • Nunavut expands by 20,000 km inland, moving north along the shoreline. Industrial support continues to flow in from the rest of the Imperium supporting growth in Nunavut. Wadab is expanded by 60,000 km pushing westward across Neu Berliner territories. Taimaini expands by 60,000 km on the coast, with new factories and power generators built in the major cities of the territory. Baridi expands by 60,000 km with additional profits coming from increased oil production, and the lack of foreign competition allows the Ethiopians there continue to expand at a faster pace. New Borona expands 60,000 km inward, focusing on northward expansion. The military, economy and infrastructure of all territories are expanded. Transportation within the empire continues to expand, along with electrical output in the major cities throughout the Imperium.
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues and under the Socialists, is endorsed highly. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation with railroad construction continuing all around the nation. The Akashchuts continue to be built at a rapid pace and the city sees its Central Districts completely occupied by akashchuts. The diesel locomotive is put into service running around the nation. The SOC big bosses begin to come under less workload and begin to relax more. More rigs are set up in Dakshin Maharajya under SOC Shell. Rigs continue to pump out the oil and it begins to be transported back to the United Maharajya and sold. SOC Rail continues to try gaining contracts to build extensive rail networks in Dakshin Maharajya and Uttarshina. In Dakshin Maharajya, the company completes hundreds of miles of railroad and this helps to link the region better with other cities. Profits begin to surge and money begins to head into the coffers of the SOC once more. The SOC it seems is out of the woods and they are now once more becoming a major company. The UM works with Japan to implement the Uda Code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies.

Morocco and Mauritania are declared dominions and Morocco comes under the control of Rajputana while Mauritania under the United Maharajya. Both dominions are expanded by 128,000 km. Sanjay Rajpath is now able to just focus on his inventions rather than having to run a business. Rajesh helps his father in the inventing scene, but he is more busy running the company. The Daily Times continues to sell well and it begins to become bigger on the geopolitical scene as well as the science based news. The telephone begins to be made in greater numbers and sold to more households. Radar sees its first major use as it successfully detects aircraft for the first time. In the capital of Bhubaneswar, construction of a subway and trams continues. The first akashchuts continue to be build in the outskirts of the city while many old buildings in the central city have finished renovation. They now look almost new.

The construction of more coal based power stations continue, with electrical power grids being laid down. The Dominion of Uttarshina continues the construction of its new capital, with work nearly done. its location is the OTL location of Bagota. The huge southern reconstruction plan continues with many workers now having jobs. The NHS is made into a greater force with doctors beginning to be employed and helping people. The Kapoor siblings continue their taxing work but have continued to make rapid progress. Their helicopter begins to be worked on and more designs are looked at and a few more prototypes are built. The siblings continue the construction of their small factories to construct aircraft, airships and now helicopters. Their planes work better as more research is put into it. Tata Motors' armoured cars and tanks are proved worthwhile and continue to be produced for the army. The nation's intellectuals continue their frenzy. They prove many of the laws and theorems they have received internationally. Scientists continue to look into radioactive atoms and more work on Radium is done. Their work in the theoretical physics field continues. Research on the universe continues and the stars are observed in greater detail, helping to greaten the understanding of the scientists. The Maharaja visits Japan once more and begins to feel feelings of deep affection for the Japanese Crown-Princess. "He is clearly smitten over her" one diplomat observes. Thousands more soldiers are sent to Ethiopia and the tanks finally have a practical war they can fight in. The uprisers are fought back and the tanks help give a huge advantage over the opposition. Work on the canals continue and it is hoped profits will be made. However, tensions begin to rise as the United Maharajya feels that intervention on the side of its allies may become necessary seeing the deteriorating conditions of the civil war. It continues to mobilise and its navy begins to sail more often, docking in allied ports and looking aggressive. Tensions are beginning to build and nations like Neu Berlin begin to be frowned upon.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Khmers expand their military, economy and infrastructure. Dakshin Maharajya begins to experience growth and as its rail networks are linked up in a better fashion, the flow of goods is made quicker. In schools, Sankala is the main language to be taught which the regional language takes the role of second main language. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance - especially in Atlantia and Aprika. Kongo is expanded by 20,000 km.

1916

  • Portugal, León, Aragon, Majorca, Barcelona, Castille, Navarra and Granada's economies improve and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, railroads continue being built in Portugal, and the other Iberian states. Meanwhile in Portugal, Isabelle d'Enghien gives birth to a boy, who she names Siger, after her older brother, Siger d'Enghien. Since the name "Siger" in itself doesn't exist in Portuguese, it is translated into Portuguese as "Soeiro", a male given name that practically hasn't been used since the 13th century, despite the sporadic revivals of medieval given names in the peninsula. Meanwhile in Castille, the unmarried King Fernando IX marries Aldonza Carrillo de Gamboa, daughter of Rodrigo II Carrillo de Gamboa, Count of Priego, and 30 years his junior. Meanwhile, Sofala expands by 7600 sq km. Meanwhile, Lisboa hosts the Olympic Games.
  • Brasil's economy improves. Railroads continue being built in Brasil, and efforts to connect some existing railroads to each other are made.
  • Argentina expands by 57,400 sq km. Meanwhile, the first recording of Tango music is made.
  • France's economy improves and industrialization continues. Meanwhile, propaganda aimed to legitimize the current government continues to be spread on France.
  • Mutapa builds up its military.
  • The Scandinavians continue to expand their industry, with the entire nation being solidly industrialized. The three major religions solidify their control over the entire country, with significant Russian Orthodox and Germanic minorities.
    • The United Maharajya sends out a Non-Aggression Pact to the government of Scandinavia, seeing the need for some stable relations in northern Europe.
    • The Scandinavians agree to the offer.
  • Nouvelle France: We continue expanding our industry to keep up with other more modernized nations. Traditional industries across our nation begin to be expanded by the use of more modern technology. In the east where fishing makes up a large portion of the region’s economy, newer practices are put into place to maximize fishing yields, and many smaller companies begin adopting newer equipment.

Similar fortifications are planned along major towns lining our western and southern border, but are delayed due to thick jungle and weather plaguing construction. The blueprints drafted for a new class of battleship to replace the ones inherited from the French and their colonial ports is approved. Known as the Croisade-class, the new ships are planned to be 176.6 meters in length, with a total displacement of 24,830 long tons, and powered by 2-shaft triple expansion engines, 2-shaft turbines, and 21 or 28 coal-fired boilers, reaching a total speed of twenty one knots. The ships are planned to be armed with twelve 340mm/45 Modèle 1912 guns, twenty four 138.6 mm Mle 1910 guns, six 47 mm (1.9 in) guns, and six 450 mm (17.7 in) torpedo tubes, and fitted with 300 to 340 mm armor. Older cruisers and pre-dreadnought battleships are called in to be modernized. Wood paneling is replaced by modern steel, and larger ships are fitted with more advanced guns. This updating process is slow going, using up the nation’s few dry docks and shipyards. Because of this a plan is created to expand the nation’s shipbuilding industries, as well as construct a fourth modern shipyard along the nation’s coast. We accept the trade agreement from Uttarshina and immediately begin opening trade across their border. Joint military exercises also begin to train our nation’s military. Funding from Uttarshina helps to jump-start the modernization of the nation’s military. Because of our growing military ties, we ask for an alliance with Uttarshina to ensure our joint military co-operation in the future.
    • ​Uttarshina would be honoured to undertake an alliance with the Nouvelle French. We are open to co-operation on a militaristic scale if the Nouvelle French would be willing to help out on the banana and coconut growing fields for the nation.
    • Nouvelle France: We would be happy to assist your banana and coconut industries. 
  • The Hellenic Equalist Republic: The HER government continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic Peninsula to spur the economy on.

In Constantinople and the surrounding areas, artillery begins being built and is placed at both the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack. The HER continues to expand both its economy and its military. Artillery becomes more widespread and is used to protect the Union, as well as tanks and planes which are slowly introduced into the armies.
  • The Egyptian Equalist Republic: continues to expand its army and navy, as well as its economy. It expands by 160,000 sq km. Tanks and planes are slowly introduced into the army, as well as artillery, which is situated around major cities.

The new government aggressively expands infrastructure and begins to develop the oil industry, and exports to other UER republics in an attempt to make Tamanian oil a staple within the UER. Tanks and planes begin to be introduced, as well as artillery.
  • The Beninese Equalist Republic: reforms and expands its army and navy, as well as begins rudimentary railway and steel and glass building. It also begins to build oil rigs. Tanks and planes begin to be introduced along with artillery. An envoy is sent to [small African state that I surround that I don't know the name of] for possible talks of vassalisation and a part of the UER, bolstering its economy.
  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity replaces steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. We establish a constitutional monarchy. We become filthily advanced. Most factories now use electricity and coal and oil electricity plants are built. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We begin to industrialize quicker than usual as large money, effort and labour is put into the movement. As a result, the economy grows quickly due to government stimulation projects, such as the construction of airstrips, better docks and asphalt roads. Due to the jungle climate of Myanmar, our military focus is to create an aggressive military force with many small, but mobile tanks. We continue construction of the Rangoon-15.
  • Saxony (DCGE Member-state): Fatalities from the flooding are quite small, considering the large areas affected. The main problem is infrastructure damage, and the army is sent in to assist the rebuilding effort. Airships are used extensively to fly in food and building supplies to cut-off or otherwise hard-to-reach areas. "Jazz" becomes quite popular amongst the Dresden coffee-shop scene, and there is talk of a "Jazz Tram" being set up which would have a live jazz band playing all day as the tram rolled around the city. Preparations are under way for the NHS to be fully introduced next year. Saxon West Africa, with nowhere left to expand, focuses on modernising and industrialising its infrastructure. Many more Germans settle there. The governor passes a law allowing blacks the same rights to jobs in the civil service as whites and people of mixed ancestry. Many highly-educated blacks take the opportunity and join the civil service, adding much experience and expertise to it. Saxon Australis expands the maximum amount into the black, spurred on by rumours of more gold. Tanimbarkai begins rexpanding industrially, especially in the new territory. The two "nations" in Anhalt co-exist peacefully, except for the odd suicide bomb.
  • The Rokkaku Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist temples and Shinto shrines are built throughout the nation. Railways continue to be built. Shinto shrines, Taoist temples and some Buddhist temples are built throughout the colonies. More funding is put into science and agriculture. More fertiliser is created and used on fields.

Bavaria continues to experience a baby boom. Cities like Munchen and Bamberg grow as people flock to the cities. Work in the Imperial Capital continues at a breakneck pace. The German Navy is so prevalent in the North Sea the Germans have begun calling it "the German Lake". The German Navy embraces newer battleship technologies, with the Kiaser Erburt and Kaiseren Elisabeth constructed, easily two of the largest battleships in the world. Modern dreadnought technologies continue to grow. Propaganda is pumped throughout Germany, telling the people to work faster and harder to forward the Fatherland into a bright future. Saxonische continues to grow as a new language and is now mandatory in all German schools. The Commonwealths of Poland and Slovakia are both expanded militarily and economically. Airstrips become a common sight. German dreadnoughts are sold to Britannia and Australis in a massive military upgrade of all the Commonwealth nations. Traine's inventions become more popular, especially the AC in Borneo and Afrika, and the polygraph becomes a widely used tool over the whole Empire. Baltica elects representatives to the Baltica General Convention and send representatives to the German Commonwealth's capital of Bamberg. In Munchen and other large German cities, the massive population boom as led to more and more skyscrapers being constructed. Munchen is being refered to as "the city of a million spires" due in part to the old churches including the now 400 year old Munchen Cathedral, but mostly due to the towering precense of skyscrapers. A new type of music begins to gain some poularity, brought from the Commonwealth of Afrika. This type of music becomes called "jazz". While the music is a new sound, many begin to approve and other variations like the "Swing" begin. Jazz grows in coffee shops and other relaxed venues across the Commonwealths. Germany works with Orissian and other parties to further nuclear theory and other major scientific theories.

  • The Italian Republic continues working in earnest to upgrade its military after decades of minor revolts that have caused some disorganization. The Yugoslav and Antilian Republics work heavily on upgrading their foundries and factories, both seek to become the primary production centre for the UER. The USAS, The Ecuatorean Republic, The Republic of Pacifico, The Republic of South East Asia and the City of Tsingapore all work heavily on their naval power. The Hungarian and Romanian Republic work on their economies while the Republics in the low countries work on their infrastructure as the minor revolts took a heavy toll there. The Republic of Australis expands 100,000 sq km into the centre of the continent. The UER holds its first election across all of its territories, the co-ordinated effort takes thousands and thousands of Italian Liras but results in the election of the 500 members of the UER parliament which is located in Athens as a central location and also as a tribute to the birthplace of democracy. The UER begins heavy investment into its researching and development industries with materials and electricity being heavily researched. The UER sends more expeditions to Antarktis, and stations troops on its claims from 45 West to 90 East (south of Australis the Pacific and South America) with the Republics of Pacifico, Italia, Australis and Aymara all creating stations in their portions of the area.
    • Neu Berlin and Gerrmany have already declared sovereignty over and moved research stations into the continent. The entirety of the continent is claimed, but the UER is welcome to conduct research in the Neu Berliner area.
    • The UER claimed that area several years prior. We ask that you respect our claim and not breach our sovereignty.  
  • All states expand military. Theodor Rosenfeld leaves the office of Chancellor, suceeded by some lame person. Rosenfeld goes off to live in the Reichskommissariat Sioux as a badass hunter. Meanwhile, the Kaiserreichsmarine continues to make bases in the Oriental Ocean. Ragtime takes off in Neu Berlin City.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade. A new youth organization is formed, called the 'Boy Hunters' (OTL Boy Scouts) that teaches children about their ancestral Mayan roots as well as practical survival skills. The Empire continues the construction of two canals - one in Boruca (Panama) and one in Mangue/Chorotega (Nicaragua). Immigration is limited. The Royal Science Academy continue studying the 'steam turbine', as well as experimenting with crude oil. Electricity becomes a popular amenity in some more wealthy provinces.

  • The United Maharajya and its associated states and vassals all expand militarily and economically. Increased trade helps boost their economies. The successful transaction of land provdes a buge popularity boost for the government and it is certain re-election will occur. The nation begins to feel greater animosity to states which cannot leave Russia in peace and therefore it begins to mobilise its armed forces, preparing to counter threats. They are tired of the bloody civil war and may intervene to help out their working brothers.

  • Saxony (DCGE Member-state): The NHS is finally implemented across the country. Funded by the "NHS Levy" (a percentage of taxable income), every Saxon subject is now able to attend hospital, and visit GPs and specialists free of charge. Many thousands of people nationwide start using the system. A number of doctors remain in private practice, giving richer people an more expensie alternative (they still have to pay the levy though). The left hopes that eventually, there will be no private medical practitioners. State elections are held, their timing - straight after the opening of the NHS- ensures that the Left are returned to government; this time without needing to ally themselves with the Colonial Party. The new Prime Minister is a bit conservative on foreign policy issues, and he states that his ministry will not allow Saxony to go to war as an aggressor. "Jazz" grows in popularity amongst the Dresden coffee-shop scene. The much talked-of "Jazz Tram" is set up by the Dresden City Council, amusing burghers by playing a selection of the latest jazz tunes all through the day. Saxon West Africa, with nowhere left to expand, focuses on modernising and industrialising its infrastructure. Many more Germans settle there. The governor passes a law allowing blacks the same rights to jobs in the civil service as whites and people of mixed ancestry. Many highly-educated blacks take the opportunity and join the civil service, adding much experience and expertise to it. Saxon Australis expands the maximum amount into the black, spurred on by rumours of more gold. Khmer Koch expands economicaly. Tanimbarkai begins rexpanding industrially, especially in the new territory. The two "nations" in Anhalt co-exist peacefully, except for the odd suicide bomb.

  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity replaces steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. We establish a constitutional monarchy. We become filthily advanced. Most factories now use electricity and coal and oil electricity plants are built. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We begin to industrialize quicker than usual as large money, effort and labour is put into the movement. As a result, the economy grows quickly due to government stimulation projects, such as the construction of airstrips, better docks and asphalt roads. Due to the jungle climate of Myanmar, our military focus is to create an aggressive military force with many small, but mobile tanks. We continue construction of the Rangoon-15.
  • The rebel conflict in Imperium Africana comes to an end, with the majority of the rebel forces destroyed by the Imperial government, which has claimed a decisive victory over the foreigner invasion. The Emperor returns, and upon inspecting the carnage for himself as well as the reasons as to why the conflict begin, he understands the fact that change must come about. He returns to Addis Ababa, where announces the beginning of socio-political reforms, moving Ethiopia away from its hostile, imperialistic views, and toward a socialist government in which the people are more accepting of foreigners. However, he states that though Ethiopia's government will change, the culture itself will take many decades to adjust to the changes. The government outfits the military with new technologies developed during the war, such as bombers and heavy tanks, and the development of seaplane tenders (early aircraft carriers) being in the cities of Lagos and Massawa.
    • The United Maharajya offers its support in the development of joint seaplane tenders as well as any help the new government for the workers will need.

Experiments using electrical lines to power trains begin to be looked at too. The SOC big bosses begin to come under less workload and begin to relax more. More rigs are set up in Dakshin Maharajya under SOC Shell. Rigs continue to pump out the oil and it begins to be transported back to the United Maharajya and sold. SOC Rail continues to try gaining contracts to build extensive rail networks in Dakshin Maharajya and Uttarshina. In Dakshin Maharajya, the company completes hundreds of miles of railroad and this helps to link the region better with other cities. Profits begin to surge and money begins to head into the coffers of the SOC once more. The SOC continues its growth and begins to open offices around the nations. The UM works with Japan to implement the Uda Code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow with government backing and subsidies. The Maha-Agni Class continues construction and one more is launched. Asabists are now part of Patagoshinan society and they begin to get good jobs, along with becoming fanatical followers of the current administration. The Patagoshinans quickly begin to antagonise other nations and they begin to try to stand up to nations like Uttarshina. Afghani cities continue growth and work on keeping its army in shape. The world's first semi-automatic rifle continues to be researched and parts for the gun are tested. A surge in funding is suddenly received and this allows for those working on it to speed up the project. Jainistan begins to grow as a nation and its people spread out into the lands, setting up new villages and towns. Orissan Aprika begins to colonise the lands and in the small new villages and towns, school construction and small railway stops are constructed to ensure it is connected with the rest of the colony. Hundreds of thousands head to the new lands in the hope of starting new lives. Morocco and Mauritania are expanded by 128,000 km. Sanjay Rajpath, after living a vibrant life, passes away this year - leaving his company and fortunes to his son. Rajesh Rajpath is now the owner of the family business and he begins to undertake greater scientific endeavours. The Daily Times continues to sell well and it begins to become bigger on the geopolitical scene as well as the science based news. The telephone begins to be made in greater numbers and sold to more households. Radar sees its first major use as it successfully detects aircraft for the first time. In the capital of Bhubaneswar, the construction of the trams and subways have been completed and there is much buzz as people begin to use the new services to great effect. They are happy with the quick services and the shortening of journey times. Many akashchuts finish construction, with major companies relocating to these new buildings and setting up new offices. The small city of Khittagong begins to receive attention and the planners begin to plan new suburbs and central discricts in a bid to make sure the city is nicely organised. The construction of more coal based power stations continue, with electrical power grids being laid down. The Dominion of Uttarshina continues the construction of its new capital, with work nearly done; its location is the OTL location of Bagota.

Scientists continue to look into radioactive atoms and more work on Radium is done. Their work in the theoretical physics field continues. Research on the universe continues and Arvind Harichand publishes a theory stating that the universe is expanding due to the fact the bserved distances between galaxies seem to be growing. Known as "Harichand's Law", this begins to cause a huge stir in the scientific community. The Maharaja confesses his love to the now Empress of Japan. He expresses a desire to marry her and bring the two nations into a personal union. He awaits her response; googly-eyed. The troops have proven their worth in Ethiopia and have spread ideas of brotherhood and working together for common goals. This seems to have impacted the Ethiopian government as a change in their policies can now be seen. The returning soldiers bring back with them the concept of a new religion - Chaudaism. In this time of intellectuals, the ideas of the new religion begin to catch on as people of Ethiopian descent along with most Hindus can observe that the teachings hold merit. The new religion promotes yoga while keeping a sense of charity and hardwork alive. The ideas spread like wildfire - and so does opposition. Work on the canals continue and it is hoped profits will be made. However, tensions begin to rise as the United Maharajya feels that intervention on the side of its allies may become necessary seeing the deteriorating conditions of the civil war. It continues to mobilise and its navy begins to sail more often, docking in allied ports and looking aggressive. Tensions are beginning to build and nations like Neu Berlin begin to be frowned upon. The United Maharajya transforms itself and declares the creation of the United Commonwealth, with the founding members being Orissa, Uttarshina, Dakshin Maharajya, Cebu and Lanka along with Rajputana and Afghanistan. These nations all agree to a common currency and joint armed forces training as well as joint scientific programs and collective decisions on issues like immigration and emigration. One of their first acts is the "Forest Protection Act", in which they state that forests will be used wisely and wildlife is to be protected. This new law sparks controversy and debate in the nation.

Dakshin Maharajya begins to experience growth and as its rail networks are linked up in a better fashion, the flow of goods is made quicker. In schools, Sankala is the main language to be taught which the regional language takes the role of second main language. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance - especially in Atlantia and Aprika. Kongo is expanded by 20,000 km.
  • Nouvelle France: We continue expanding our industry to keep up with other more modernized nations. Traditional industries across our nation begin to be expanded by the use of more modern technology. In the east where fishing makes up a large portion of the region’s economy, newer practices are put into place to maximize fishing yields, and many smaller companies begin adopting newer equipment. The small amount of farming in this area, mostly consisting of banana and sugar harvesting along the coast, is encouraged to grow by the government, and government subsidies are provided to large businesses to help them adopt modern equipment and expand their plantations. Gold mining and timber industries are also slightly expanded, making use of small railroad systems between towns. In the central region the larger, more developed agricultural sector is also expanded, increasing production of rice and Demerara sugar. Mining of bauxite, gold, and minerals continues as these regions begin to utilize railroad systems and other technological advances. Similarly in the western region mining of bauxite and other minerals grows steadily. Railroads begin to be readily expanded, funded by the government and private mining companies, helping to link up major metropolitan areas and industrial sectors. Transportation and shipping between these areas grows slightly. The nations army, numbering about 195,000 active personnel at any given time, and facilitating 1,500,000 personnel in reserve, begins growing and training to respond at a moments notice. Fortifications continue to be built along our territory north of Nea Lefkosia, including a moderately sized fort to protect the region’s capital and harbor. The fort continues construction , with the intention of being completed within the next few years. In the meantime several divisions of infantry, including a reconnaissance division and a logistics division, are stationed in the area, alongside a small fleet of naval ships in the harbor, in case a situation arises requiring mobilization across the sea to the north. Similar fortifications are planned along major towns lining our western and southern border, which finally begin real construction after being delayed by thick jungle and weather plaguing construction. Work on the Croisade-class line of battleships continues, and a fourth one is laid down in the newly created shipyard. The older shipyards and dry docks in our nation continue to be upgraded. Modernization of older cruisers and pre-dreadnoughts continues, with wood paneling being replaced by modern steel, and larger ships fitted with more advanced guns. Trade flourishes with our nearby neighbor of Uttarshina. With our help their banana and coconut industries are expanded. Joint military exercises also continue with Uttarshina. After hearing reports of possible rich petroleum deposits across our nation the government of Nouvelle France and several wealthy private investors begin funding a project to begin extracting crude oil from a natural deposit in our interior. The Régie Autonome des Pétroles (RAP) is founded in Nea Konstantinopolis as the national oil company of Nouvelle France. We ask Uttarshina for help funding and constructing the infrastructure of this company.
    • Uttarshina soon becomes interested, and the company SOC Shell catch word and head straight over. They are willing to help oout as long as they are allowed to set up a small number of rigs themselves and invest a good amount of money.

The Hungarian and Romanian Republic work on their economies while the Republics in the low countries work on their infrastructure as the minor revolts took a heavy toll there. The Republic of Australis expands 100,000 sq km into the centre of the continent. The UER holds its first election across all of its territories, the co-ordinated effort takes thousands and thousands of Italian Liras but results in the election of the 500 members of the UER parliament which is located in Athens as a central location and also as a tribute to the birthplace of democracy. The UER begins heavy investment into its researching and development industries with materials and electricity being heavily researched.

  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity replaces steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. We establish a constitutional monarchy. We become filthily advanced. Most factories now use electricity and coal and oil electricity plants are built. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We begin to industrialize quicker than usual as large money, effort and labour is put into the movement. As a result, the economy grows quickly due to government stimulation projects, such as the construction of airstrips, better docks and asphalt roads. Due to the jungle climate of Myanmar, our military focus is to create an aggressive military force with many small, but mobile tanks. We begin to build the Rangoon-17.
  • Nouvelle France: We continue expanding our industry to keep up with other more modernized nations. Traditional industries across our nation begin to be expanded by the use of more modern technology. In the east where fishing makes up a large portion of the region’s economy, newer practices are put into place to maximize fishing yields, and many smaller companies begin adopting newer equipment. The small amount of farming in this area, mostly consisting of banana and sugar harvesting along the coast, is encouraged to grow by the government, and government subsidies are provided to large businesses to help them adopt modern equipment and expand their plantations. Gold mining and timber industries are also slightly expanded, making use of small railroad systems between towns. In the central region the larger, more developed agricultural sector is also expanded, increasing production of rice and Demerara sugar. Mining of bauxite, gold and minerals continues as these regions begin to utilize railroad systems and other technological advances. Similarly in the western region mining of bauxite and other minerals grows steadily. Railroads begin to be readily expanded, funded by the government and private mining companies, helping to link up major metropolitan areas and industrial sectors. Transportation and shipping between these areas grows slightly. The nation's army, numbering about 195,000 active personnel at any given time, and facilitating 1,500,000 personnel in reserve, begins growing and training to respond at a moments notice. The fortifications built along our territory north of Nea Lefkosia, including a moderately sized fort to protect the region’s capital and harbor are completed and opened immediately. Several divisions of infantry, including a reconnaissance division and a logistics division, are stationed in the area, alongside a small fleet of naval ships in the harbor, in case a situation arises requiring mobilization across the sea to the north. Similar fortifications continue to be built along major towns lining our western and southern border. Work on the Croisade-class line of battleships continues, with the first three battleships being completed. The older shipyards and dry docks in our nation continue to be upgraded. Modernization of older cruisers and pre-dreadnoughts continues, with wood paneling being replaced by modern steel, and larger ships fitted with more advanced guns. Trade flourishes with our nearby neighbor of Uttarshina. With our help their banana and coconut industries are expanded. Joint military exercises also continue with Uttarshina. The Régie Autonome des Pétroles grows steadily, with its first derricks being constructed from national investments and private investors.

1919

The Orissans launch their "stabilisation offensive" into Russia - aimed at bringing stability and peace into the civil war torn lands. The two small Central Asian nations of Dimurat and Khiva agree to let the offensive pass through them, as they have a history of resentment toward the Kazakhs. For a while, the Russian government was having the advantage, but the Equalists struck back hard and caused more chaos. This has led to many deaths and millions heading eastward to the Far East Republic. The cities in the west of the Urals have been significantly damaged and many lie in rubble. Nation's must decide which side they intervene for. There are large crowds gathering in Scandinavia who wish to join the Orissans.

What the fuck is this? The war is over, Far East is just the only thing left.

No, it didn't. Lx's posts were not acknowledged by the mods due to the fact he had a tendency to waltz in and just state he ended the civil war. And when I talked about the bonus that was against the Equalists in Russia and the FER.

I did not just "waltz in" and stop the civil war. The 1912 mod event explicitly stated that the Equalist forces were in full-on retreat. Check it if you want. I could not edit in 1913 because of exams, and it is a good assumption to make, because no mod event that year stated otherwise, that Russian Equalists were retreating everywhere. The army is not going to just sit on their asses, so they follow them, and in 1914, I ended the war by destroying the remaining pockets of resistance. I looked back at that ... and I fail to see why it was disregarded in the first place ... anyway, war over many years ago, and I tanked the FER so ... that part still under debate, but even if disregard that, then you can't disgregard war over.

The government of the Far East Republic need to institute more infrastructure programs as well as having to focus on providing food and water for their population. An ambitious project is proposed which will make huge man-made lakes aimed at making surrounding temperatures more stable. The costs will be large and its neighbour China is offered the chance to invest.

Why is this thing still going on? My exams at school do not permit regular editing, but I am 100% sure I put an end to the civil war back in 1914 ... and then threatened the Far East back into Russia using the world's largest army (I remember a mod event mentioning something along those lines ... so could somebody clarify why the civil war is still happening at all?

Imp's just taking advantage of how much the civil war tore your nation's infrastructure apart.

Then why is this a mod event and not simply his post? Also, how can he invade Russia? The only land route sends him though NPCs in Central Asia, and the sea route through the Baltic passes through a small sliver of sea called the Cat's Neck ... also, if the Event implies inconsistencies, the Pacific Coast would be the only rule-allowed invasion, barring the Implausible Arctic Invasion, and if he posted both, then he will be going through an NPC. Point is, there is no way for him to possibly invade Russia, and I am almost certain that I already ended it before my exam-related absence happening, so could somebody be kind and offer an explanation?

They get a pass through those two small nations because they have a history of resentment toward the Kazakhs, as the reason the Kazakhs got that big was a morally dubious strategy involving terrorism.

Still does not explain why this is a mod post instead of a player post ... and they are invading Russia not Kazakhstan ... although friend of my enemy is my enemy maybe, but still, this seems more like a player post. Also ... I want some sort of ... let's just say clarification on the situation with the Far East, the only mention of a "Greater Siberian Empire" is Pita's post of questionable legality ... Seriously, that is the only post, and then the only reason he did that was that he was convinced by Yank to drop Korea ... and then said he only did so because he thought he did not hurt anyone/cause controversies and then gave them up, essentially putting that whole part of the world into a sort of limbo because of my beliefs that I threatened them back into Russia with tanks (large forces of tanks on your borders, especially if you have none, are huge motivators in decisions) ... right after the civil war ended ... which is why I want to seriously clarify this whole situation ... and ask that nobody mention said limbo until situations are clarified ...

It's a mod post because Imp isn't going to be able to post regularly. You've got it right on the head with Kazakhstan. You're not making any friends by being friends with a hated enemy.

I'm just trying to figure out what's going on, didn't I end it a while back? I believe it was the last post I made before exams got the better part of my time  ... This event completely contradicts both my understanding that I ended this vile conflict for the better, and logic which states that with all that foreign involvement, it was essentially impossible for this to NOT have ended, and even if not ended, there should have been some event that said ... Socialists win because of aid from Maya, Germany and China.

The civil war is over. So this is now a player war, and not an intervention.

  • Selk'nam: Industrialization deepens in Maughold, after a long life, dies at the age of 78. The succession crisis which had been brewing for some time finally kicks into high-gear. Prince Amador is the legal heir, but due to his Downs Syndrome is seen as unfit to take the throne. Prince John, the closest male cousin, has died leaving one male heir - Prince Henry, who many see as the legal heir if Amador is incompetent - however, Henry is tarnished by his familiy's somewhat nationalist views and his association with Eris, his aunt - though he demands the throne anyway.  The royal house, however, backs the claim of  Maughold's 42-year old second daughter Princess Ælfgifu, who became the preferred heir when her older sister Matthea gave up her spot in the line of succession, Queen Eleuia firmly backs her daughter's claim and her populatiry lead to mant Pro-Ælfgifu protests in Ona Yagich. Parliament rushes through legislation declaring that the first child of any monarch, of either gender, is the heir to the throne, but Henry says this law will only apply in the future and that he is the legitimate king should Amador abdicate as expected. In a surprise, Amador, supported by his sisters and mother, calls a press conference which is widely attended. He then shocks reporters by uttering only six words, "I will be King, thank you." He then leaves the stage without taking any questions, the royal house "grudgingly" backs his decision, saying there is no legal recourse, and amid much consternation he is crowned as King at Ona Yagich Cathedral. Then, two days after his coronation, he calls another surprising press conference - which turns out to be almost as short as the first. King Amador comes to the microphone and says, "I will not be king anymore, now my sister will be queen. We made a funny joke on you, Henry!" The Supreme Court rules that the new succession law was not in force before Amador's succession, but that since he was the first king to take office after the passage of the new law, it applies to his successors. Seeing as Amador has no children, but that his sisters are the eldest remaining children of a monarch, regardless of gender, and that Matthea has removed herself from the line of succession, Ælfgifu was not Maughold's legal heir but is Amador's legal heir. Political commentators call the decision to install Amador to bring the succession law into force as, "the most brilliant legal maneuver in Selk'nam history." Ælfgifu is crowned as queen, to great rejoicing in the Haruwin. New Judea is welcomed into the Haruwin, and large numbers of Jewish De Mor Tir refugees emigrate to the new "Jewish Haruwin" 
  • Ygich Rafael: Queen Scholastica is saddened by the death of her cousin Maughold. Industry continues to  deepen and automobiles become extremely common. Population grows on the outlying islands as reliable diesel-powered ferries make it easier to get to the remote islands.
  • Attican Union: Industrialization deepens as Prime Minister Willie declares a "Great Pacifist Age of Prosperity". In advance of the 1920 election, Willie and his long-time allies in the Socialist Party decide to merge the Socialist and Pacifist parties into a large new party, which they call The Broad Front for Peace and Socialism (BFPS).  It is thought that this move could save the Pacifist ideology, as the extension of voting rights to the conquered Yagich Gavin was expected to be a boon for the Socialists and flip the coalition on its head. King Diego remains popular.  
  •  Praetorate of Eternal Matter: Radicals attempt a coup against Praetor Pythagoras, during which the 88 year-old former Praetoress Eris reveals herself to have been co-ordinating terrorist activities from a hideout on the island. Radicals wish to install her as "Praetoress of a new and purified Pure Science State." However, after a bloody struggle, the rebellion is put down and Eris is finally arrested after evading the law all her life. It is said that, "while still sharp, she clearly not the strategic mind she used to be". Pythagoras purges rebel supporters from his government and finally decides to dispense with Eris, who he has secretly allowed to stay in the country as a concession to stabilize the radicals in his government. He is concerned about the ability of his Preatorate to keep Eris imprisoned, and does not want to hand her over to his Attican enemies. Hence, he asks that Wales allow Eris to be extradited to face trial in Cardiff for her crimes. 
  • Russia: The Russian government continues to advance in the fields of Aeronautics and tanks ... lots of new tanks ... and much more advanced ... yay Russia! Due to lingering resentment toward the socialists, the Individualists (equivalent to conservative party) win many of the seats in the Duma, winning 47% as opposed to socialists' lowest in almost a century now 37% of the seats ... and the votes going to either individualists or interdependent ... in any case, the Individualist leader is chosen as the Chief Posadnik of Novgorod. The first thing he does is give private corporations the contracts to rebuild Russia's infrastructure, and increase funding toward the Eurasian Railroads, and a plan to privatize many things ... in any case, support for privatization and Individualists grows ... although for how long nobody knows, and the government takes a more negative approach to Equalism. The Mensheviks struggle too, their 12% of seats downgrading to a meager 7%, majority in the ex-Far Eastern Republic. More modern plane designs are released and Russian government vows to keep the largest areal military force in the world, as well as the largest Tank army in the worlds, since they reached that point during the civil war. eight years of fighting really pumped up Russia's war industry, and slightly raised economy, and the Individualists want to take a lessez-faire approach. Kalashnikov creates the world's first Machine Pistol, the PAK-19 (Pistolet-Avtomat Kalashnikova model 1919-go goda). Tommy-guns are also produced, and Izhmash, the Rival to Kalashnikov industries, produces that type of weapon, in any case, Russian army benefits, and Russia's allies of course. Russia moves to closer ties with Germany and china, and adopts a friendlier and less-confrontationalist approach to Scandinavia, as opposed to the confrontationalist policies of the Socialist government, and wants to consider Scandinavia Russia's Ally. Russia mobilizes its navy to the Pacific Coast after the Orissan declaration of war ...
  • Belorussia Invests heavily in Russian tanks, more weapons and whatnot. Builds up military and puts it on hold in anticipation of the Orissans' Actions.
  • Ukraina: works on rebuilding after civil war, and military still fights small pockets of guerrilla fighters ... although they are downgraded to essentially a nuisance, and are now nothing more than basement terrorists ... in any case, economy is attempted to be rebuilt through government spending ... also investing in Russian military stuff.
  • Kazakhstan works on improving its tank arsenal ... in any case, investments and whatnot are put into Russian recovery.
  • Eesti does things ... yay! essentially working on its navy and the Tsar is crowned in Eesti ... all treaties are henceforth restated with Eesti, constitution is re-established ... yada, yada, yada ... Bolshevism is outlawed ... and then that outlawing is deemed unconstitutional and violating the people's right to free thought and dissent. 
  • The Russian realm heads of government attend a conference in the city of Brest in Belorussia to try to reform what they have from simply realms with the same monarch into a Eurasian Union, or EU. This would induce an EU parliament, proposed to be in Moscow, and all members vote on laws that they all must follow, and also a Eurasian Customs Z (ECZ, ETC in Russian) (modern Schengen zone or however it's spelled), a free-trade Zone, and a single currency, the Russian ruble reformed into the Eurasian ruble ... and away from the gold standard ... in any case, the ultimate goal is to provide mechanisms for nations outside of the Russian Tsar's personal union nations to join and to formalize the informal and semi-formal happenings and stuff (usage of currency was almost all Russian ruble, or at least allowed and tolerated by a grand majority of stores in all nations).
  • Please don't delete this. I am not ignoring the mod event, that really looks more like an underlined player post, and in either case, mods are not allowed to control who player-nations go to war with, In any case, I am simply being event-neutral, nothing I said contradicts it ... at least in my mind, I just want to be 100% sure what's going on or was going on in my absence before reacting in any way. I just want to get all the facts before submitting a response is all, please don't accuse me of ignoring. I am doing the best I can with the information available, please don't kill me ... pls, pls, pls ... I am editing with the information I obtain and believe to be true. If I am wrong, please leave a response outlining where I am wrong instead of just crossing the entire thing out and accusing me of ignoring moderators. Sound good? Thanks a bunch!

In the east where fishing makes up a large portion of the region’s economy, newer practices are put into place to maximize fishing yields, and many smaller companies begin adopting newer equipment. The small amount of farming in this area, mostly consisting of banana and sugar harvesting along the coast, is encouraged to grow by the government, and government subsidies are provided to large businesses to help them adopt modern equipment and expand their plantations. Gold mining and timber industries are also slightly expanded, making use of small railroad systems between towns. In the central region the larger, more developed agricultural sector is also expanded, increasing production of rice and Demerara sugar. Mining of bauxite, gold and minerals continues as these regions begin to utilize railroad systems and other technological advances. Similarly in the western region mining of bauxite and other minerals grows steadily. Railroads begin to be readily expanded, funded by the government and private mining companies, helping to link up major metropolitan areas and industrial sectors. Transportation and shipping between these areas grows slightly. Another 15,000 man infantry division is created as the 12e Division de d'Infanterie. Work on the Croisade-class line of battleships continues, with the first five battleships being completed total, and another two almost completed. The older shipyards and dry docks in our nation continue to be upgraded. Modernization of older cruisers and pre-dreadnoughts continues, with wood paneling being replaced by modern steel, and larger ships fitted with more advanced guns. Trade flourishes with our nearby neighbor of Uttarshina. With our help their banana and coconut industries are expanded. Joint military exercises also continue with Uttarshina. The Régie Autonome des Pétroles grows steadily, with its first dericks being constructed from national investments and private investors.

  • Nouvelle France: We continue expanding our industry to keep up with other more modernized nations. Traditional industries across our nation begin to be expanded by the use of more modern technology. In the east where fishing makes up a large portion of the region’s economy, newer practices are put into place to maximize fishing yields, and many smaller companies begin adopting newer equipment. The small amount of farming in this area, mostly consisting of banana and sugar harvesting along the coast, is encouraged to grow by the government, and government subsidies are provided to large businesses to help them adopt modern equipment and expand their plantations. Gold mining and timber industries are also slightly expanded, making use of small railroad systems between towns. In the central region the larger, more developed agricultural sector is also expanded, increasing production of rice and Demerara sugar. Mining of bauxite, gold, and minerals continues as these regions begin to utilize railroad systems and other technological advances. Similarly in the western region mining of bauxite and other minerals grows steadily. Railroads begin to be readily expanded, funded by the government and private mining companies, helping to link up major metropolitan areas and industrial sectors. Transportation and shipping between these areas grows slightly. Ship building continues, as well as the training of our land forces. We support the Ethiopian invasion of Neu Berlin, and deploy the 1re Division de d'Infanterie and the 2e Division de Renseignement divisions, supported by a small fleet led by the newly commissioned Croisade lead battleship, to the command of the Ethiopian Armed Forces to aid in the invasion.
  • The Greater Antillian Reich is shocked by the sudden and uncalled for invasion of Neu Berlin. Aid is called for from allies in the form of the Gang Federation and Germany
  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues and under the Socialists, is endorsed highly. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation with railroad construction continuing all around the nation. The Akashchuts continue to be built at a rapid pace and the city sees its Central Districts completely occupied by akashchuts. More diesel locomotives begin to run and they seem to prove their worth. Experiments using electrical lines to power trains begin to be looked at, too. The SOC big bosses now begin to work to expand their influence as SOC Shell. More rigs are set up in Dakshin Maharajya, with the first rigs being set up in Uttarshina too. The SOC also expand in Nouvelle France and invest heavily as well as setting up one or two rigs. They begin to work with their counterparts to help them get started. Rigs continue to pump out the oil and it begins to be transported back to the United Maharajya and sold. SOC Rail gains contracts in Uttarshina. Profits surge and money to the SOC helps them expand their base and increase their influence.

Their helicopter begins to be worked on and more designs are looked at and a few more prototypes are built. The siblings continue the construction of their small factories to construct aircraft, airships and now helicopters. Their planes work better as more research is put into it. Tata Motors' tanks receive more work and models which can travel and much faster speeds begin to be developed. Armoured versions of these tanks are also being researched. The nation's intellectuals continue their frenzy. They prove many of the laws and theorems they have received internationally. Scientists continue to look into radioactive atoms and more work on Radium is done. Their work in the theoretical physics field continues and the first theories in splitting the atom and producing energy begins to researched. "Harichand's Law" causes a huge stir in the scientific community and many come out to disprove his ideas against this expansion of the universe theory. The biggest opponents are those which believe in the stable universe theory and disagree with all of the Harichand's Laws. Chaudaism spreads like wildfire - and so does opposition, with thousands of the old followers of Hinduism opposing the religion. Tens of thousands of Orissans continue to flock to the religion.. Work on the canals continue and it is hoped profits will be made. The "Forest Protection Act" survey of the Wild Tiger population begins, with numbers slowly collected by the government agency. The government is afraid of what the results may be. The Maharajyan troops progress quickly and efficiently and take out all still opposing them and causing chaos in the regions.

1922

Independence movements in West Africa begin to rise again. The war-weary people begin to grow uneasy in the various vassals of Ethiopia. Protests turn to riots as the people, sick of Ethiopian brutality, plot to become sovereign nations again. This erupts all around their empire. The newly conquered regions in Antillia begin a partisan uprising against the Scandinavians and Ethiopians. They find a lot of success against the Scandinavians who do not have the numbers to hold down the former Neu Berliners.

This post makes no sense. Your saying that a victorious empire that just put down rebels a few years before this with public approval, and changed its government for the people by the people now is being divided by the people? What kind of gibberish is this? Oh, and where's the brutality against my people? This is down right implausible. Your fabricating nonsense to break up my empire. And for the last time, why would the Ethiopian West Africans want to split away from Ethiopia, who mind you, is right next to them? ~Viva

Not everyone is Ethiopian. Mind you, the 99% does not appreciate being controlled by the 1%. 

I did say to slow down, but no. Seeing the deteriorating conditions all around the Imperium, all troops are ordered to be ready to fight. Therefore Ethiopia is not allowed any expansion anywhere around the world until the next mod post allows them so. No expansion of puppets, vassals, dominions or otherwise.

This is still makes no sense. What deteriorating conditions? That's as valid as saying "and the United States broke up because." ~Viva

You just stated you were the combination of the Russian and British Empires. Both broke up. 

I state I was the combination of either. You asked who could I be compared to militarily and economically, and I compared myself to Britain and Russia. Nice try though. ~Viva

  • In Imperium Africana, the many jokes about the press are made by the population, few citizens not fully understanding actually what rebellion the newspapers were talking about. The Emperor himself states that he is at a loss for words upon reading the news, and at popular request, has the newspaper editors jailed for sedition. The Citizens' Home Guard is, however, scrambled across the empire to deal with any potential threats to the government, and dominions follow suit with their own counter-insurgency forces, a task they have become quite good at thanks to the civil wars of the past against the ethnic rebels. Tens of thousands are rounded up, given background checks, and later released, while civilians are encouraged to speak up if they see something that is amiss. With routine sweeps and civilian militias on guard, the Imperium cannot find what rebellion was stated to be underway. The secret police watching the Mali government state that no such plots exists, and that the only major plots by the dominion is that of planning of the Emperor's birthday. Though, for the sake of security, the Emperor replaces may government officials in the dominions as part of his reformation process. He also announces the merging of Mali with Senegal and Guinea, and the division of Benin between Nigeria and Mali. He also merges Nunvaut, Taimaini and Wadab into a single dominion known as Nunavut. In Neu Berlin, the Ethiopian engage in total war against the Germans, bombing cities and industrial areas, and destroying large chunks of the resisting Neu Berliner population. Many Ethiopian men and women see the war as a stepping stone for a political or military career, and volunteer to join the military to fight abroad. Other dominions who are to benefit from the conflict join in, and the dreadnought and seaplane tender fleets are sent to blockade the ports of Neu Berlin, and strangle its economy. Hundreds of thousands of Ethiopian troops are sent to fight the Neu Berliners, many taking their families with them as the government hands out very generous land grants to any Ethiopians willing to move to the recently conquered territories, as well as a monetary incentive. Seeking to relieve overpopulation in the homeland, the government engages in a massive campaign to resettle hundreds of thousands of Ethiopians in Antilla. Seeing the war as an investment opportunity, businessmen purchase and sell arms to the military, with many designing new weapons to assist the government in winning overseas. Several firms work together to develop a high-powered machine gun that can be carried by one individual, given him more firepower with a smaller gun. Elsewhere, the military distributes flamethrowers to the troops, a terrifying weapon that was developed in secret by the government. Many Ethiopians are glued to the radio as they come to view the war with Neu Berlin as a holy war, one aimed at rewriting the countless wrongs against them by Neu Berlin over the last two centuries. United in their hatred and demands for justice, Ethiopians march against the Neu Berliners of Antilla. Where they were once incapable of standing against them, they are now capable of conquering their old foe. The longing for this day brings the empire together as one, with the dominions sending tens of thousands of willing recruits to fight for their ancestors. Hymns and bells can be heard on the battlefront as priests and nuns provide services to the faithful soldiers of Ethiopia, and soldiers on the frontlines adorn themselves with images of family members and the three gods of Chaudism before the rush into battle. The countless years of propaganda and conditioning have prepared the Ethiopians for this day, and they move to retake the "dark lands" from their enemy, lands which were long shown on school maps as black, lands that "rightfully" belonged to the Ethiopian people, and that were their's to retake.

Mining of bauxite, gold, and minerals continues as these regions begin to utilize railroad systems and other technological advances. Similarly in the western region mining of bauxite and other minerals grows steadily. Railroads begin to be readily expanded, funded by the government and private mining companies, helping to link up major metropolitan areas and industrial sectors. Transportation and shipping between these areas grows slightly. The northern military base on our mainland is officially commissioned as Fort Péninsule. Prominent general Joseph Chevalier is appointed commander of the French Armed Forces, in charge of French military actions against Neu Berlin. After a large naval bombardment of Neu Berlin’s various Caribbean possessions, we mobilize the 3e Division de d'Infanterie, 4e Division de d'Infanterie, 1e Division de Renseignement, and the Division Logistique from Fort Péninsule to the territory of Neu Zeeland, making a landing near the southern side of the island. Following a series of quick skirmishes with the small Neu Berliner garrision, the island is occupied. Using the island as a spring board into the Caribbean, our forces manage to take the rest of the region from Neu Berlin. Chevalier and his officers are praised for their successful campaign in the Caribbean, securing the formerly French colony of Neu Zeeland. With experience under its belt, the French navy continues to reform its tactics, and notices the need for modern destroyers to protect some of their more valuable vessels.

  • Propaganda within the Maharajya continues and under the Socialists, is endorsed highly. The first propaganda film is made and it portrays the United Maharajya as the bastion of freedom, trading and brotherhood. Industrialisation continues to occur all over the nation with railroad construction continuing all around the nation. The Akashchuts continue to be built at a rapid pace and the city sees its Central Districts completely occupied by akashchuts. More diesel locomotives begin to run and they seem to prove their worth. Experiments using electrical lines to power trains begin to be looked at, too. The SOC big bosses now begin to work to expand their influence as SOC Shell. More rigs are set up in Dakshin Maharajya, as well as Uttarshina and the oil helps to power the navy and armed aircraft and tanks. The SOC also expand in Nouvelle France and invest heavily as well as setting up one or two rigs. They begin to work with their counterparts to help them get started. Rigs continue to pump out the oil and it begins to be transported back to the United Maharajya and sold. SOC Rail gains contracts in Uttarshina. Profits surge and money to the SOC helps them expand their base and increase their influence. The SOC continues its growth and its akashchuts are full of employees. The UM works with Japan to implement the Uda Code while helping the Germans create a new encryption code. The steamship and submersible navy continues to grow and the first major submarine is launched with more ready for launch. The Maha-Agni Class continues construction and three more is launched. There are over twenty of these huge ships in service. The first UM aircraft carrier is also launched seeing the need arise. Asaabists are now part of Patagoshinan society and they begin to get good jobs, along with becoming fanatical followers of the current administration. The Patagoshinans quickly begin to antagonise other nations and they begin to try to stand up to nations like Uttarshina. Afghani cities continue growth and work on keeping its army in shape. The world's first semi-automatic rifle is distributed throughout the Army. Jainistan continues to grow as a nation and its people spread out into the lands, setting up new villages and towns. Word of a Jainish homeland spreads rapidly in the United Maharajya and millions begin to look into emigrating to the new lands. Orissan Aprika begins to colonise the lands and in the small new villages and towns, school construction and small railway stops are constructed to ensure it is connected with the rest of the colony. Hundreds of thousands head to the new lands in the hope of starting new lives. Morocco and Mauritania begin to consolidate their lands and road construction along with the construction of Chaudist temples as the religion has grown rapidly in the region. Hinduism now only is followed by 45% of the population. Rajesh Rajpath continues to undertake greater scientific endeavours. The Daily Times continues to sell well and it begins to become bigger on the geopolitical scene as well as the science based news.

Armoured versions of these tanks are also being researched. The nation's intellectuals continue their frenzy. They prove many of the laws and theorems they have received internationally. Scientists continue to look into radioactive atoms and more work on Radium is done. Their work in the theoretical physics field continues and the first theories in splitting the atom and producing energy begins to researched. "Harichand's Law" causes a huge stir in the scientific community and many come out to disprove his ideas against this expansion of the universe theory. The biggest opponents are those which believe in the stable universe theory and disagree with all of the Harichand's Laws. Chaudaism spreads like wildfire - and so does opposition, with thousands of the old followers of Hinduism opposing the religion. The religion is now the biggest in migrant areas of the nation while many feel a connection with the new religion. Trimurts are the ones who feel the most connection with Chaudaism. Work on the canals continue and it is hoped profits will be made. The "Forest Protection Act" now gains a huge amount of support seeing the new numbers of tigers found.

The United Maharajya moves into Antillia after building up in Uttarshina and they use their navy to destroy the Neu Berliner taskforces. They declare war on them. However, the United Maharajya realise the need for the canals and so they use this to invade the Maya. However the troops are told they are invading to free their workers who are under the control of Mayan rulers. They ask Italia to join them in their attempt to subdue the Mayans.
    • Dude, that is the greatest fucking bullshit since the Caliphate. And trust me, the Caliphate is unheard of in the world of ASB; matching or even getting this close to it is far more implausible. You realize that you could just ask them for your workers back? The canals are free for everyone and you can pass through them any day of the year. Jackass. ~ s
    • If that's going to be your attitude, then you should just leave.
    • Correction: If you disagree with Yank, then you should just leave.
    • Correction: If you don't agree with Yank and if you hold lands wanted by the Ethindojapanese behemoth, you should just leave.
    • Correction: If you aren't either insane or ASB, leave now while you can.
    • I was actually going to advocate the recreation of ur state but Scraw you showed your true colours. All I really wanted was some sort of west Pacific state but oh no Scraw wants to fuck shit up. I am the US of the game, the bully. And like the US I would have recreated ur state with an ideology the same as mine. Now I might pull a Nazi Germany on Neu Berlin. You aren't the only one who can take out their anger with one thing on something else.
  • Rajputana continues to expand its army, economy and infrastructure. Their colony of Jainistan sees thousands head into the colony and the army helps the nation seek out new sites for villages. The Khmers expand their military, economy and infrastructure. Dakshin Maharajya begins to experience growth and as its rail networks are linked up in a better fashion, the flow of goods is made quicker. In schools, Sankala is the main language to be taught which the regional language takes the role of second main language. Hinduism continues to spread in the territory, as many see more to gain from joining the religion of the many and the powerful, than to stay in darkness and ignorance - especially in Atlantia and Aprika. Kongo asks for a land transfer with the nation to its west. All other nations expand militatry and economy and support the United Maharajya. Uttarshina declares war in support, followed by Rajputana and then the warrior nations of Afghan and Khmer follow suit. The United Commonwealth is in this together.
  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity replaces steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. We establish a constitutional monarchy. We become filthily advanced. Most factories now use electricity and coal and oil electricity plants are built. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We begin to industrialize quicker than usual as large money, effort and labour are put into the movement. As a result, the economy grows quickly due to government stimulation projects, such as the construction of airstrips, better docks and asphalt roads. Due to the jungle climate of Myanmar, our military focus is to create an aggressive military force with many small, but mobile tanks. We begin to build the Rangoon-22 light tank. We continue the construction of the Thunder-20, attaching an experimental gun on it. We begin developing a small artillery on the place that can be fired.
  • War is declared on Nunavut and Wadab, as it is decided that if the defense shall fail, at least a few major casualties shall be dealt to the enemy. The military continues to be built up as many people continue to sign up. As the winter lifts, the Scandinavian numbers are dwindling, although the Ethiopians are intesnifying their advances with Orissian support. THIS GAME IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS SHIT EVER.
  • Imperium Africana continues its advances into Neu Berlin, striking down numerous Neu Berliner military units that are holed up in the cities on the East Coast of the country. Inuit forces led by Ethiopian officers continue their push south, marching into the lands of Kanada as their tanks lead their forces though defenses in the major cities. Given the stiff resistance by Neu Berliner citizens, the Ethiopian-led forces inadvertantly killed tens of thousands of civilians in their bombing raids and sieges, clearing up areas of the region ensuring peace following a battle. Demoralized Neu Berliners residing in captured lands either flee for other countries or surrender to the Ethiopians. Back in the homeland, Chaudaism continues to spread across the Imperium, with children getting Chaudaian tattoos and pirecings for their birthdays in honor of their gods, and ceremonies to the three gods of Chaudaism becoming more and more popular with the general public. Research of the atom continues under the eye of the government, especially when it is discovered that other nations are trying to weaponize it. Thankfully, having been the first to begin research into the atom, Ethiopia is considerably ahead in their knowledge of the atom, and plan on studying it further next year.

1924

A large pacifist movement sweeps through Scandinavia and Ethiopia as a reaction against the war of conquest in the far away lands of Antilia. Protests sweep across the nations and their vassals as the populations demand an end to the wars. A few separist groups take advantage of the protest to launch their own agendas with the Ethiopian military occupied against the industrialised Neu Berlin.

  • The Italian Republic continues working in earnest to upgrade its military after decades of minor revolts that have caused some disorganization. The Yugoslav and Antilian Republics work heavily on upgrading their foundries and factories, both seek to become the primary production centre for the UER. The USAS, The Ecuatorean Republic, The Republic of Pacifico, The Republic of South East Asia and the City of Tsingapore all work heavily on their naval power. The Hungarian and Romanian Republic work on their economies while the Republics in the low countries work on their infrastructure as the minor revolts took a heavy toll there. The Republic of Australis expands 100,000 sq km into the centre of the continent. The UER holds its first election across all of its territories, the co-ordinated effort takes thousands and thousands of Italian Liras but results in the election of the 500 members of the UER parliament which is located in Athens as a central location and also as a tribute to the birthplace of democracy. The UER begins heavy investment into its researching and development industries with materials and electricity being heavily researched. The UER sends more expeditions to Antarktis, and stations troops on its claims from 45 West to 90 East (south of Australis the Pacific and South America) with the Republics of Pacifico, Italia, Australis and Aymara all creating stations in their portions of the area. Neu Berliners are welcomed into the Antilian Republic in the face of the invasion and occupation.

  • Do we even need to post for this turn anymore?
  • Russian Scientists, while working on atoms and the like, discover the neutron ... research into nuclear masses and the such begin to happen ... with (I forget who I said Invented relativity)'s equation e=mc2 being their basiss. Military technology improved upon in Russia ... the Far Eastern Republic begins to act much more independently, and more effort is made to pacify. Offers and tanks are sent, and they agree to become part of a greater whole, maybe, or perhaps the tanks persuaded them..in any case, their military is not on par with Russia's and on all Russian maps they are Russia ... thinking goes on ... IN any case, preparation for the Moscow Conference on the Eurasian union...and members from all over Eurasia are invited, especialy Russia's allies in Germany, and new Scandinavia ... preparations for next year's elections go ahead ... and the Individualists spend their campaign rubles wisely. 
  • Belarus prepares to attend the Moscow conference, works on military, aviation and science.
  • Ukraina prepares to go to Moscow conference, Does more things and whatnot to do with economy

It is agreed upon the the EU parliament should be in Moscow, and that the "Charter of Rights" should be the highest law, even higher than the Ryads or Constitutions of the States, and even the constitutions may not abridge the fundamental rights of man, such as dissent, free speech, the right to health, and life ... the next conference is planned for next ytear, and the "Prospective Candidate" nations of Germany and Scandinavia are given formal INvidations to attend and have their voices heard ... planned in the city of Kiev.
    • ​Right seriously. You were taken out on the algorithm and if you want to play as Russia then message me and I will tell you what we have basically implemented and what your nation will be like.
  • Within the dominions of Imperium Africana the pacifist movements end as quickly as they began, with an astonishing lack of support from the largely warhawk population of the Imperium, long since feed a steady stream of propaganda in school during their youth. The pacifists instead opt to channel their energies into establishing a neutral medical service that will help both the Imperial Army and the Neu Berliner population, seeking to do good instead of serve as an admittedly useless obstacle in the face of overwhelming popular opinion in the Imperium, which supports the war. Protests against the war are swiftly put down by the government with major public support, as many have invested too greatly into the waging of the conflict through war bonds and firstborn sons to see it end. Their desire to see Neu Berlin wiped from the map outweighs their desire to end the conflict abruptly. Pacifists are largely ignored by the rest of the population, and the dominion's continue to support the conflict out of pride and hatred for the past grivances by Neu Berlin. The war against the Neu Berliners continues, with progress made in capturing several Midwest Antillian cities, where a provisional government is established by the Ethiopian force. Polio, disentary, and influenza break out in the major cities of Neu Berlin's captured territories, killing many of the civilians who possessed no immunity to the dieseases like their Ethiopian counterparts. Neu Berlin factories are bombed into the ground by way of Ethiopian air superiority, and the lack of a major air force allows Ethiopia to ruthlessly target any and all Neu Berliner opposition pointed out by the ground forces. The industrial power of Neu Berlin is denied by way of superior Ethiopian firepower and extreme attrition and diesease. As many Neu Berliner men succumb to diesease, the Ethiopian forces continue to march ahead to victory as the chant Chaudian war hymns. Faith serves as a major fuel source in driving Ethiopian morale as much as their hatred of Neu Berlin. Portraits of the Premier-Emperor and flags of the Imperium are hung across Neu Berliner cities, indictating the Ethiopians are there to stay. The Neu Berliner population continue to decline, and their homes are quickly handed out by the Ethiopian government to citizens willing to move to neu Berlin and settle in the land. Greater monetary incentives are granted to colonists, whom the government also promote to high positions based on previous skills and merits. Half a million Ethiopians had opted to move to Antillia, especially with overpopulation forcing many overseas to look for work. With the need for rebuilding and re-establishment of numerous businesses lost in the war, Ethiopian citizens see an opprotunity to take advantage of the work that will soon be needed, and move to establish themselves in the new lands. Work on studying the atom continues, and progress is made in the realm of physics when Prof. Geza announces his theory of relativity, which becomes a groundbreaking achievement in the academic world.

1925

All right, I'm not going to let this game die due to its own talk page.

A new peace movement called the Bohemies begins all around the world following the warring and fighting. Many people begin the protest on the streets to end the war and make peace with the enemy. This affects all the nation's currently at war with each other and the United Maharajya is forced, along with Scandinavia and Imperium Africana, to try to make peace.

The people of other nations of the world begin to protest about one thing or another as a time of unrest begins. In Antillia, the Neu Berliners and Mayans establish many secure lines inland where they have the time to do so. They manage to get their troops and equipment to these lines and can repeal offensives toward inland cities and factories. Their coasts are not so protected, however.

One issue with this statement. The coasts where captured several turns ago, with Neu Berlin (city) captured two turns ago. The Allied forces are much deeper than the coast. Though with the game in its death throws, I presume this doesn't really matter right? ~Viva

  • PM is never dead.
  • I'm afraid that Scraw's right. PM the series will never die, but PMII quite emphatically is dead.
  • Perhaps for you too, but I still have a cold war and an arms race to participate in.
  • With who? Yourself? Grow up and let go. Stop dragging the dead body.
  • You wanna quit? Go ahead. See the posts above you, the game is clearly not dead. Two people cannot make that decision.
  • The only people left are yourself, Lx, Seiga and Ninja. Yank is ready to leave. Go read the talk page, it's really the whole wiki vs four.
  • The whole wiki doesn't play PM. Plus, I cannot see a mention of stopping this game anywhere on the talkpage. Care to point it out? And four people? So be it.
  • Stop being a child. Accept it. I too will miss it, but the time has come ... the TIME OF THE DOCTOR. (Which I'm assuming you didn't watch because you had more important things to do like squabble with some petty people on the internet.)
  • It's dead, Imp. I want to move past this clusterf*ck as soon as possible. Your continuing to beat this dead horse does not make that possible. It seems like you'll still be playing PMII long after pretty much everyone else has left for PMIII.
  • Screw Dr Who. They ruined their previous seasons with Rose jumping into the timestream. Great one. And count the votes of those who are playing the game.
  • There's only four "nay" votes in the PTP poll. There are ten "ayes". Basic math says you lose, Imp.
  • Actually, eight of the ten "ayes" are non-players, who technically have no real say in the game as they aren't the players. To end someone else's game when your not even in it is just tacky. ~Viva
  • Thank you Viva. And those who voted against are the player(s) responsible for the creation of the next game - namely Scan. You wanna argue with him, be my guest.
  • Antillian Armistice (PMII)
    The United Maharajya sees many of its civilian populace agitated and willing to stop and end the war in a far away nation which is mainly being fought to increase the United Maharajyan standing in world eyes and to spread the Equa-Socialist teachings of the nation. This leads to people beginning to question the ideology and mainly the fact on who is running the nation.and if they should be in the positions they currently are. Although the United Maharajya has moblised a huge force of men, they realise they need time to sort things out and ease tensions and volatile situations around the world They now begin to openly consider peace negotiations, for with the Maharaja is at the forefront of. The military is ordered to rapidly capture its objectives - no matter the cost and hold them as the diplomatic machine of the United Maharajya went to work. They do so but in the process lose tens of thousands of men and an unknown amount of equipment - hundreds of tanks and aircraft. However, amist all this fighting, the first monoplane flies from UM lines - testing its flight capabilities against biplanes. However, the Maharaja arrives in person to lead peace negotiations with the Mayans and Neu Berliners, after the capturing of objectives. They are looking to sign an armistice and end the war with support from their people. They make it clear they have the numbers to go on but would like a peaceful solution to the war on their front. They offer the Antillian nations the boundaries (from our side) as shown on the map. The United Maharajya has deployed their troops in positions more inland to be on the safe side and to show they give up territory.
  • he Hellenic Equalist Republic: The HER government continues to develop its railways, and steel and glass are developed all over Anatolia and the Hellenic Peninsula to spur the economy on. In Cyprus and Crete cloth factories and paper mills are built and in the colonies, hospitals and health care continue to be widespread. In Constantinople and the surrounding areas, artillery begins being built and is placed at both the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, to protect Constantinople from attack. The HER continues to expand both its economy and its military. Artillery becomes more widespread and is used to protect the Union, as well as tanks and planes which are slowly introduced into the armies.

  • Ethiopian Claims in Neu Berlin (PMII)
    Within Imperium Africana the "Bohemie" protests are put down swiftly and violently by citizen militias, who find their pacifists neighbors to be more of an obstruction and nusiance to their desire for a victory against the Neu Berliner nation. Many are arrested for sedition, and other beaten in the streets by fellow citizens for attempting to sabotage Ethiopian progress abroad. The Bohemie movement is crushed in most areas of the Imperium, and others fizzle out as former members go into hiding to avoid persecution. The government's position on the matter of the war is final as far as the Premier-Emperor and his staff or concerned, and given the reaction of the public to the war, he reassures his staff that he has the hearts and minds of his people on his side, he as well as his generation the product of their parents' and grandparents heavy propaganda. In Antilla, Ethiopian forces continue to grind Neu Berliner and Mayan forces into the ground, with superior firepower devastating entire enemy formations as they are encountered across the frontlines of the war. The government of Ethiopia lays claim to the lands they are in the process of capturing or have already conquered, establishing two new governments in the new lands. The first consisting of the Ethiopian territories already present before the start of the war, and the integration of the Neu Berliner territories into the former. This land is established as the Dominion of Samen, which is to serve as the northern portion of the new Ethiopian Antillian territories. The southern half, the Dominion of Merab, is to consist of the core Neu Berliner territories devastated by the unrelenting advance of the Ethiopian invasion forces. Tens of thousands of Ethiopians looking for jobs in the new economy are resettled in Merab and Samen, and establish a ruling class in the new dominions. The destruction of the Neu Berliner population by way of sustained air raids, artillery sieges, diesease outbreaks, and food shortages, ensures that both lands will be easier to govern over in the future as many Neu Berliners simply flee for friendly countries, or are captured and cut down by Ethiopian soldiers. The defense lines of the Neu Berliner forces is broken down by a masterly-crafted offensive, which is headed by Field Marshal Mehret Mersha, commander of the Antillan invasion force. He develops a fast-moving attack column which catches up to the retreating Neu Berliner military forces, encircling them and wiping them out before they can organize an effective defense. The retreating troops headed to the defense lines are equally crushed by Ethiopian air power, pin down and wipe out entire armies along the narrow western passages, which soon become known as the "Valleys of Death". There, Neu Berliner soldiers, trapped between their own armored vehicles and pursuing Ethiopian soldiers within the cramp confines of the western canyons, have no way of escaping the Ethiopians, and their forces are destroyed to a man. Ethiopians at home are delighted when news of the gruesome victories reach their ears, and pictures of slain and burnt Neu Berliner bodies are hung across bar fronts, buildings and stores, bones of the slain enemy soldiers are mailed home by soldiers to their familes as totems of their successes on the front. As macabre as it may be, the Ethiopians find the displays to be a strengthening source, and continue to march against their enemies. Progress on the research of the atom continues, and the production of additional aircraft carriers in light of the war abroad is began.
    • Viva, that is way too much to ask. You will be ripped apart by protests as people will end up becoming tired and hungry. We all would have lost millions of troops in this offensive.
    • Well, looking at this post, the last post, and the post before that, the Ethiopian people aren't tired of fighting. Only the mod-backed whiners are tired, and they've been beaten every time. Plus, they've been told since they were children that Neu Berlin must be destroyed (as I used propaganda saying that for the last fifty years). So for my people, the losses are well worth it. They're kinda like radical Muslims. They keep on fighting and are extremely zealous. War-wariness isn't much of an issue. Plus, I just got through killing off millions of Neu Berliners. How can you protest when your starving, in hiding, or on the run from the genocidal war machine behind you? All part of the plan. ~Viva
    • Look Viva, I think this is why I am getting slack from people like Scraw, because I am not pointing out to you a lot of that is implausible. Even though Collie should have pointed it out, I will do so. The algo for this was never really completed and things like this are not so easy to pull off. And I swear the Emperor/Maharaja has bi-polar disorder. He is a lot nicer in the United Maharajya, LOL.
    • And why the fuck would they be raised to do such a thing? In case you haven't noticed, the modern form of Neu Berlin had yet to engage in a war with you. Also, the giant flaw in this entire post is the Appalachians. You can only have so many planes in 1925. since we didn't have a war around the same time as World War I on the same scale as World War I. Tanks would have a god awful hard time passing the mountains and infantry would take a very long time, and by the time they made it through whatever spread out passes were available they would have fallen into the great trap of waiting defensive forces. Even if you passed them you would have to cross rivers and make it past guerrilla attacks, Native Americans, and empty plains and all this other stuff. Also, capturing the capital is really the last thing that would happen, since it's on a fucking island. Not to mention that an island capital would be greatly defended, being one of the few major warm water Atlantic ports. Don't give me that bullshit that your navy is more powerful than mine, we're on the same industrial scale. Even if your fleets are larger, they are not more powerful, and they would be greatly destroyed by the time they got anywhere close to the land. If you tried to make an inland drive from Long Island, you would fail, because the beaches out east (Montauk, etc) are not the best for supporting heavy stuff like tanks and the northern and southern beaches have the same problems. Manhattan is surrounded by two rivers (three from some points of view), rivers which would not serve your best interest as naval mines could be laid in them during the first naval battle which would take place near the Narrows in any invasion. Even if you tried to land from southern Manhattan Island you would have to fall back or at least collapse into a stalemate because defensive lines would have been set up, again, during the main naval battle. Really, your only option is to invade everything around it and then attempt to cross the Harlem River from the Bronx or come in through the Long Island Sound, both of which would require your navy which would really be dead as a whole whereas my navy would now be larger since there would be few other naval battles. This is really the same problem as invading Britain around this time OTL, although on a smaller scale for two smaller islands.
    • If you look at the history of Jews, they didn't nothing to the people who they were often around, and yet for centuries, entire cultures were raised to hate them for something they were responsible for two thousand years ago. Many Ethiopians still remember Neu Berlin's betrayal of 1835 and their invasion in 1720. The Manchu ruled China up until 1912, yet anti-Qing sentiment is still rife, and the Manchu are still despised by the Han Chinese for their role in invading China in the 1600s. As I stated the moment the war started, Ethiopia declared this total war, meaning that Ethiopia is in this to win, and has thus thrown its entire industrial might behind the war effort. Ethiopia is much larger and stronger than Neu Berlin, and has been so for quite a while. While we are both the same color industrially, Ethiopia has many more times as factories as you and four times and the population. Since I have more land, factories, and people like Britain, my navy by simply fact of my empire's size, is larger than yours. Your more like Germany compared to Britain in 1914. Your navy is large and powerful, but nowhere near are large as Ethiopia's. You have a small coastline that doesn't demand a large navy, nor an extensive colonial empire than requires naval protection. Ethiopia does. Problem with your other navy statement is that Britain actually built up its navy, Neu Berlin did not. All you posted was that you were expanding and developing new goods and technologies. Not a single word about your navy. Ethiopia spent more time and money building bigger and stronger ships, which I put into my posts to show the development. You said nothing about the development of your navy or naval defenses, and only have your word and opinions to back you up while I have actual posts. So my navy is stronger and larger for the same reason you can't say that you know more about the atom in the game. Unless you actually had your nation research it, by the mod's and rule's standards, you don't know anything about. Most of this stuff you just came up with to prevent yourself from being defeated. As for airpower, during WWI, Britain had 3,300 aircraft while Germany only had only half of that number. Now, if you look at a map, you control very few mountains, with the only ones left to you in the far west. The rest of Neu Berlin is flat or hilly, but not mountainous. And you speak as if I've only just invaded. The coasts of your nation are flat and easy to land on, and Manhattan Island was captured already. Your coastlines are under Allied control. Its been five years already, and you were invaded by four other, larger countries with larger economies and militaries. For the same reason you wouldn't allow Ethiopia to fend off an invasion from China, Neu Berlin and the Maya, is the same reason I'm not letting you win against Ethiopia, Orissa, Nouvelle France, and Scandinavia. Your one nation fending off invasions from several locations and your nation is very flat and easy to invade. Ethiopia war mostly hilly and mountainous, yet you demanded that your coalition win on the technically that Ethiopia was outnumbered. Your outnumbered now and you have very few natural defenses (a few rivers never stopped the Allies from invading Germany, they just built bridges and crossed them), and your fighting on fumes. Yours factories have been destroyed and your military caught off guard. So get over it Scraw. You lost already and the war is won. ~Viva
    • In case you haven't noticed, I'm not a religion, I'm a nation. Said nation was not around to fight you in 1720. In every turn I have written continuously that "all states expand military." What it means exactly is not up to you. Also, what happened in 1835? Here's a map of the range of the Appalachian Mountains: http://static.ddmcdn.com/gif/willow/the-appalachians0.gif Also, Nouvelle France and Scandinavia are smaller than me in every respect of the word. Really, it's just two vs one here. And I'll remind you that China, the Maya, and myself fought very little to no war in Ethiopia, and this was the reason we took absolutely no land from Ethiopia proper. Why? Because it was both implausible and impossible. Rather, we took land overseas, and land that was close to us. As I've said, Manhattan Island would not be captured immediately. It would take a very long time. Also, Imp didn't join the war until recently. 1923, if memory serves. Really, your only hope up until then would have been land invasion through your Antillian positions. My point is not that the conquest is implausible, it's that it's happened too fast. The problem with your analogy is that Germany was not an island. It was invaded primarily through land via France and Russia, and Britain had to attack what little coastline Germany proper had. How are my factories destroyed? Do you have bombers? Bombers capable of doing anything? As I've said before, we haven't had a giant war as large as WWI to spur the development of great military technologies. If anything the whole world is still stuck in 1914. Even then we've only got a few bombers and recon planes each, although I'll concede that you'll have more. I doubt that you have a bunch planes stocked up in your Arctic territories, so whatever planes you have are stuck at home in Ethiopia since aircraft carries have not been developed yet. Meanwhile, I have what little planes I have at home, ready to fight. In OTL, good, practical bombers were not developed until the end of the war was nearing. Why? Because until the war started, neither side had any good reason to build any useful bombers, even though war was right on the horizon and everyone knew it. As for navy, why you have any sort of great navy is beyond me. At best you'd have a navy on par with the French pre-WWI, and I'd have a German-esque. You have a spread out colonial empire, I'll give you that, but a lot of your land and population is based on land in Africa. Your colonies are in the Arctic, where the ice is frozen over for a good part of the year, and Australia, which would take a while to get to Neu Berlin proper. In the end this war is just World War I if Britain and France proper (with their colonial possessions, minus India, as Imp's India is really Britain without India, if that makes any sense) fought Germany proper (only). Britain and France would win, no question, but it would take more than six years and would take heavy casualties on both sides. You're not getting out of this war without heavy casualties. I have never said that I would win, all I've said is that your winning would be long, hard, and painful, which you're really making it look like it isn't. 
    • Ugh. You know something? I'm not even in the mood for arguing with you anymore. You whine and complain until you get your way, and I'm not doing it today. Say what you want, but Imp hasn't put his nations in the algo yet, but once he does, it'll show that we've got the 33%. I'm done. You lost. I'm too tired to deal with you today. ~Viva
    • This is your problem. If you had bothered to read what I said, you would've seen that I agreed with you. Again, "I have never said that I would win, all I've said is that your winning would be long, hard, and painful, which you're really making it look like it isn't."
    • I said I wasn't going to argue with you, but a few points you mentioned beforehand prove that you didn't read anything I had to say. I developed bombers in a post a made several turns ago, and had been producing them as an alternative to artillery. Carriers were developed as seaplane tenders before the First World War, the first one produced by the French in 1912. More than ten were destroyed during the war and were called aircraft carriers by the press. So carriers were around by the 1920s. Your statement on the naval power of Ethiopia is once again your opinion, not back up by any shred of evidence of which you have none. I've been building dreadnoughts for the last fifty years, and was the first nation to build them, as well as the carriers. And the first bombers were produced by the Italians before World War I, and used to fight the Turks in Libya in 1911 and 1913. Though not heavy-hitters, unlike Italy, Ethiopia had been planning this war for some time now, and had a very good reason to rain large amounts of death from the sky on the factories and homes of a very dangerous enemy. Your making assumptions about military strength in the game with no proof to back up your claims. As for motive, your people don't have to hate the country to hate the people. OTL German-Americans didn't have to wear a uniform and fighting Americans in Europe to be hated at home just for being German. Neu Berlin is the spawn of the nation that waged two wars that nearly destroyed Ethiopia in the past. That's why Ethiopia hates Neu Berlin. And no, I won't be getting out of this war without heavy casualties, but that's not something Ethiopia is all to concerned about. ~Viva
    • Even if we start a new game, stuff like this will not stop. This is why I wanted this game to go on so we could eventually see what all of you have to say about the technological boom and space race. But alas, I have clearly lost the second vote, so you (SOB's) win.

  • Myanmar: Industrialization begins to speed up dramatically due to the rise of personal enterprises and the steam engine.  Electricity replaces steam engines. More rifles are built. We continue expanding our navy. We become really rich from selling silk and scientists began researching an industrialised way of making silk. Most of Myanmar is now cities. We establish a constitutional monarchy. We become filthily advanced. Most factories now use electricity and coal and oil electricity plants are built. We mine for iron and pay taxes in Australia. We begin to industrialize quicker than usual as large money, effort and labour are put into the movement. As a result, the economy grows quickly due to government stimulation projects, such as the construction of airstrips, better docks and asphalt roads. Due to the jungle climate of Myanmar, our military focus is to create an aggressive military force with many small, but mobile tanks. We begin to build the Rangoon-26 light tank.

1927

On all sides of the Antillian front, movement slows down as the home sides have dug in. The Ethiopians in their offensives begin to lose hundreds of thousands against well dug-in Neu Berliners and they cannot keep going without losing millions more troops overall. They have already lose millions. The Orissans are pulling back from the east and are staying in the west, in the regions they would like to keep control of. NOTE: I know this game will probably die but Scraw and Cour, for the sake of it, could you at least tell me (Orissa) if you accept our peace terms?

No. It's far too much. The north, maybe, but the West Coast and Central Antillia are not happening. As for mod events, some of us take them seriously, while others brush them off.
This is makes no sense, Imp. There's no way Ethiopia lost millions of troops in battle. Even when the Allies and the Russians invaded Germany, they never lost millions of soldiers. Even when the Japanese invaded China in the 1930s, they only lost 480,000 soldiers in battle, one million tops. And that study was done by the PRC. Half a million yes. Millions? Absolutely not. I don't even have millions of troops of Neu Berlin (Japan only needed have five million to conquer China, so imagine what I could do with just a million). ~Viva
Neu Berlin says no; never; we will fight to the last man.
Fighting a slightly unified and industrialized nation is different from fighting a barely-industrialized nation in the middle of a civil war.
The Communists and Nationalists worked together to fight the Japanese, and outnumbered them greatly. Also, China was considered a partially industrialized nation by the end of the 1920s. And you'll notice I added Germany in there as well. And if you need further proof of this fact, when the Germans invaded France in 1940, they only lost 160,000 soldiers in total. Neu Berlin wasn't prepared for the war, and Ethiopia had moved tens of thousands of soldiers to Nunavut under the political cover that they were training for Arctic warfare (in light of the planned invasion of the FER). I invaded from the north and the east, meaning that even if the Neu Berliners organized a defense, it wouldn't have been a massive line, given that the war was and still is being fought on two fronts. So they're separated and fighting off two separate attacks, which destroyed most of their factories and manpower (since I'm targeting their population centers as well). ~Viva

  • Antillian Armistice with Others (PMII)

    The Maharaja's proposal to the Ethiopian government.

    The United Maharajya sees greater stability take place as the people of the nation support the move to end the war in the Antillian continent. Many begin to wonder why exactly the government is fighting so far away in a distant land. The reason given is to create a safe haven for the Orissan immigrants into the nation but the government also wants to have greater trading monopoly in the Pacific and more resources. However, many continue their quest in questioning the ideology of the government and begin to advocate positions for those who are fit for the job. The huge number of forces hold the lines in the western section of the Antillian continent and they engage Mayan forces in greater numbers compared to Neu Berliners and the Mayans seem adament in not accepting. A few more monoplanes are sent in the war effort and they fly brilliantly. However their numbers are too low. The Maharaja continues efforts for a diplomatic ending to the war and he engages in talks with the Ethiopian government. He tells them that these borders for the nation would be easier to maintain and would allow them to pull back their troops and secure land for themselves. Although not as much as they would have hoped, it would give them land to carry out whatever revenge they see fit. It would also put an end to the war and allow for peace to once again arrive.
    • Imperium Africana: Flatly refuses the Orissan offer. What they offer Ethiopia is yet more barren lands while they walk ago with the rich lands and territories of the Pacific Northwest. They take the lands of Central Antilla, and toss Ethiopia the scraps of land they bleed for from the beginning. We have taken the coasts of Neu Berlin, and possess their heartlands. We will march on until the neu Berliners are exterminated.

  • The people of Imperium Africana rush to recruitment centers when news that the Neu Berliners have turned back an Ethiopian offensive. The government proclaims the dead soldiers martyrs, and the people of the Imperium become more extremist in their desire to destroy the Neu Berliner nation. Members of the Home Guard are shipped off the the front after the Premier-Emperor proclaims that the empire will not stop in its aim to bring Neu Berlin under its thrall. At the front, a tank offensive by the Ethiopians crushes a Neu Berliner defensive line, carving through their defenses and capturing several territories in the west. As the Neu Berliner lines collapses, hundreds of thousands of Neu Berliner soldiers and civilians are masscured by the Ethiopian forces. Women are carried off by the soldiers, and children sent back to the homeland as hostages. With the war reaching a fever pitch, and the need for additional soldiers made evident by the casualties list, the government of Ethiopia authorizes the usage of women in the military as soldiers. While their role is limited to readguard action, Ethiopia plans to use its huge female population to bolster the fighting forces of the Imperium in its drive for a total victory. Until this point women only served as medics and engineers, allowing men to leave themselves free for fighting on the frontlines, rather than dealing with issues that were absorbing uniformed personnel. As the war continues, it sturs development of newer military vehicles and technologies. The development of a machine gun for heavy infantry is developed, and a working model is developed for 1500 military units on the front. Production of bombers in the captured territories of Neu Berlin for immediate service on the front is carried out in the old capital of Neu Berlin.

  • Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Queen Ælfgifu remains popular. After a long period of non-poartisan democracy, three parties beging to take shape. Conservative Prime Minister Hormisdas Teushen'Yijichin'i'Alacaluf'i'Teushen, a wealthy buisinessman, leads the Tradition Party. A more liberal party known as the Reform Party has gained a foothold by calling for the vote to be extended to women, and is led by a secular Taoist noble from Miyako Yagich, Wu Wei Hqlg'i'i'i. The third force, the Labor Socialist Organization (LSO), is supported strongly in K'onip and is led by a charismatic former chemical factory worker named Egalitarian Hgog (his original name has been Atticus but he thought it emblematic of the system he opposed). The extension of the vote to women becomes controversial, as the Tradition Party opposes it, but is dependant on the support fo the Reform Party to pass legislation. Eventually the two parties agree that the question should be put to a referrendum in May of 1929 in advance of the 1930 elections. The Tradition Party is certain that the measure will fail, as men have the only votes, and hence agrees. Shockingly, in November, the popular ans mysterious Princess Pharaildis, the queen's long-unmarried younger sister, comes out in favor of the referendum publicly. The queen herself had remained silent out of propriety, but her popularity was seen as a driving force behind the issue. Pharaildis, however, is not only blunt in her public pronouncements, but declares that if the referendum passes, she will resign all royal titles in order to seek a seat in parliament for the Reform Party. This sends shockwaves through the electorate and strikes great fear into the Tradition party, who begin to fear not only losing the referendum but also losing power in 1930 with a royal standing for the opposition. Hence, large amounts of money are spent by the Traditionalists to defeat the referendum and scare the male population. 
  • Kingdom of Yagich Rafael: After an extremely long reign, Queen Scholastica dies at the age of 81 and is succeeded by her son, who is crowned King Gavin Peter the Second. Scholastica is mourned by all. Prime Minister Millard Erom'llif'ijin eulogizes her as "the greatest Yagich Rafaelite in our young history". The remarks of the Selk'nam Queen Ælfgifu prove even more surprising at the funeral, as she declares that, "I believe that my cousin was the greatest leader of her age anywhere on the globe. I know that this sounds strange coming from the ruler of this county's parent nation, and the daughter of the King of that nation. In fact, I would never publicly elevate Scholastica above my own father - except that he said it so often in life that he thought her the greatest monarch the world had produced in his age, and quite possibly the greatest person produced by the Selk'nam culture in all of our shared history."

As a result of the Arabian Federation huge new wealth, several Muslims states approach the Federation asking to reform the Muslim bloc. The new Muslim bloc causes states to rebel from Ethiopian control in East Africa and join the bloc for protection against Ethiopian counter-attacks.

Due to the jungle climate of Myanmar, our military focus is to create an aggressive military force with many small, but mobile tanks. We begin to build the Rangoon-26 light tank. We begin the construction of the Thunder-29, with more advanced air-to-air missiles. We begin to develop our first heavy tank. We ask China for joint military and economic study on many sections of science.

The Muslim bloc members grow in economic and military might, as the new found wealth in the Arabian federation spreads to its allied bloc members to create a new superstate alliance.

I'm sorry, but why would the Christian Ethiopian-majority states (I've said this numerous times in the past) in union with Ethiopia for the last two centuries just up and rebel against the motherland right across the border? It would be akin to West Virginia and Mississippi deciding to rebel against the US and thinking they can win because the Mexicans said they would be better off in Mexico. You don't control East Africa or any of my territory Von. Enough god-modding. Time to put a stop to this nonsense. Oh, and I think it's hilarious you only targeted my nation. ~Viva

  • The Arabian Federation: The Federation continues to expand its economy with the new massive wealth helping to forge a new Muslim superpower. Its Muslim bloc allies all pledge allegiance to the Arabian Federation and recognise its hegemony over the bloc. With its new puppets, vassals and allies, the Federation begins plotting the creation of a never-dying Muslim superstate in Arabia. Many of the Arabian Sheiks and local leaders begin pushing for the idea of returning to a state similar to the old pan-Arabian federation, rather than the current rump federation. Rump compared to past glory anyway. The new Muslim superpower is compared to the Caliph and it is hoped Muslim power will soon once again be completely dominant and unopposed.
  • Imperium Africana: The Imperial government moves in to crush the Arab infiltators attempting to rip the empire apart. Troops returning from Ethiopian Amerika following the defeat of Neu Germania are sent to deal with the Arab nations and put an end to the silly "superpower" wannabe. The idea that millions of Muslims would somehow materialize out of nowhere into the Christian majority populations of East Africa long after Ethiopia expelled them is held as ridiculous by the Imperial government. Viewing the Arab interference as an assault on Ethiopian sovereignty, and the government declares war on Arabia. The "rebels" in East Africa are swiftly crushed by the military, and the governments of those states supply troops and equipment needed to deal with the Arab invaders once again. With images of the war from the 18th century never forgotten, the hatred of the Arabs burns brightly in Ethiopian hearts. For the Ethiopians, they are no longer the weak nation they were in the 1720s. In more serious business, the government in Amerika continues with its reconstruction efforts, receiving billions of birr from the Imperial government needed to repair the infrastructure of the dominion. Hundreds of thousands of Ethiopians are moved to the region to serve as bureaucrats and teachers, and troops of Ethiopian and Indian origin are stationed across the territory to defend against potential vandalism and looting in the wake of the German state's collapse. The few remaining Muslims in the Imperium are expelled from the nation in the wake of the Ethio-Arabian War, destroying the last vestiges of the once mighty Muslim population of Africa. The military, economy and infrastructure of the empire and its dominions takes place.
