The Ming Dynasty still rules over the vast lands of China. On the other side of the world, the Hundred Years War continues between England and France. Europe is still stuck in the old ways of feudalism and chivalry while the notions of a New World are considered figments of imagination.

We welcome you to the long-awaited fourth expansion of that immortal series. Welcome to Principia Moderni IV! Starting in 1400 AD, this is the dawn of the modern world and the tail end of the Middle Ages. The Renaissance is just kicking off in Europe, while the nations in the western side of the continent are locked in the last gasp of the Hundred Years War. The Muslim world is still reeling from the invasions of Turks and Mongols, with the Caliphate resting in the collapsing Mamluk Egypt and the Ottomans on the rise in Anatolia. Make it count.

The first game was the most successful on the wiki, leading all the way to the modern day with mostly plausible posts and little controversy. The second game reached almost to the modern day, but failed due to a plethora of ASB events and moderator bias. The third game was much more worthy of the first, almost running into implausibility but climbing back into a shining glory by the end. Riding on the latest reforms of map games since the end of PMIII, this is the most logical next step in that evolution. Remember above all other rules — have fun.

The Wildlings

All users currently on the wiki may play unless otherwise noted.

Banned Users

A ban from plausibility strikes lasts thirty days, after which the third strike is repealed and the banned player is unbanned. However, the newly unbanned player rejoins the game with two strikes, as a form of probation.

  • Bear - 1648

Banned temporarily

Plausibility Strikes

Three strikes and you're out! Each strike resets after 30 years of the most recent strike.

  • Adolf Coffee - II (1745)
  • Jackson - I (1743)
  • Austria - II (1755)
  • Drake - I (1755)

Moderator Strikes

These are strikes for moderators and how they moderate. The same three strikes rules apply. If a moderator is banned from moderating, however, they can still play as their nation. Mod strikes can be delivered in one of three ways:

  1. If a sufficient number of players (more than half of all players voting) vote to give a moderator a strike.
  2. If I, Scraw, give them a strike.
  3. If a majority of all mods (i.e., more than half of the total number of mods, excluding that moderator) vote to give a moderator a strike.

Moderators can be given strikes for the following reasons:

  1. Exhibiting bias that would benefit the nation they are playing.
  2. Exhibiting bias that would negatively affect a player they have a personal dispute with.
  3. Making a ruling that contradicts a proven fact from OTL or an established fact from earlier in the game.
  4. Overruling a decision of a majority of moderators.

Another day, another hope for Sky. You have one hour -Nate

Lightning strikes a port in England, Arcadia, causing a fire. In general, forest fires are becoming a problem in British Arcadia. 

In Central Arcadia, a mixture of scholastic and enlightenment followers begin creating a movement of Republicanism, seeing their lands as naturally separated from the Iberian homeland. So they petition the Iberian crown for more autonomous self-rule under the Iberian colonial empire, but exactly how much that should be implemented cannot be decided. 

China's income from its tribute from Europe begins to reach a staggering amount. 

A new city is built in the desert of Arabia as more urbanization reaches there. It is not named yet.


  • Italian League: (Assuming the other nations join as planned) the government formally declares war on the Grand Duchy of Savoy (and the Kingdom of France by proxy) in order to liberate Savoy and Ligura, and spread republican ideals to this region. The 150,000 professional soldiers and 600,000 conscripts, which had previously been gathered and trained from across the League and Sicily, and stationed on the border, is ordered to march into Savoy. This is accomplished by marching through the neutral Papal States, which the government justifies via an interpretation of the Treaty of Naples, which allowed for cooperation between the two states, as well as the permission the League requested a few years prior. A portion of this force is landed in the south of Ligura by sea, supported by a full naval blockade. Concurrently, an invasion is also launched of Corsica, securing the island fairly easily from the small garrison left on the island, before moving on to the island of Sardinia, which falls by the end of the year as well. The primary invasion force moves to secure strategic locations in Savoy and Ligura, fortifying their position and preparing to defend against a potential French counterattack, while in the homeland additional conscripts continue to be trained and moved west in reserve. We request that our allies, Belka, Burgundy, and Britain immediately join us in our war, and also ask Iberia for support. With the combined might of these five nations the government believes France will be easily forced to surrender their Italian territories.
  • Professional troops still have a cap of 80,000 in wartime with a two-year train time from the 60,000 peacetime. -Feud
  • Is that total though or per nation? Can the League have 80,000 and Sicily have 80,000?
  • Sultanate of Cyprus: The massive library ordered by Saif is on its way. With the money invested in the construction project, the library will be a monument on its own, even without the documents in it. Saif asked his best architect, Shaheer Kazi, to built it as an homage to the old Abbasid architecture of the 15th century, and many plans from the old Abbasid Library in Alexandria are used by Kazi for the construction. Saif also invest massive parts of his personal wealth to pay Muslim artists to represent the events from the documents in paintings, sculptures or other form of arts, although he made it clear the Caliphs or any other religious figures are not allowed to be represented. The mosque under which the documents were found resume construction after a full year of stop, and the money to help develop religious affairs is increased. Saif also organize a massive feast to celebrate the 1010 years anniversary of the founding of the Abbasid Caliphate (founded in 750). However, all this spending force cuts in the military budget, which make many (including Admiral Mufeed el-Galla), quite unhappy. Added to that, the Mujtamae Alrifyu (Rural) has basically been told that no investment would come to the rural regions of Cyprus. Saif visit Jaffarid Arabia to go see his family, still living there in exile since 1745, and also visit the court of the Sultan of Arabia.
  • Empire of Uluru: This year, the Emperor Yannathan commissions a library to be constructed in Ngarrindjeri, compiling a collection of tablets from across the history of Anangu and Uluru. Oral ballads also persist by various musicians and dancers as well. Yannathan raises children among three wives now, as well as having an imperial harem of concubines. The military continues its war in the north, invading the Arnhem people. While he's at war, a panel of nobles raises the sons of Yannathan isolated from each other.
  • Jaffarid Sultanate: The acceptance of all religions furthers. Urbanization begins to reach farther into the deserts of Arabia. An astronomer in Damascus named Muthanna el-Mansur declares the comet that occurred a few years ago to resemble reports of the one that occurred three-fourths of a century ago. Officially naming the comet "Safiyya's Comet (OTL Halley's Comet)" after his wife Safiyya who died that night watching it, proclaiming the comet to occur a few times every century. More fictional literature is published. Large urbanization reaches OTL Yemen, which had been a merchant-ran society for the longest time. After finally confirming it, Mu'tamid al-Satter has been announced dead in the later part of the year due to multiple stab wounds. No culprits have been found, and with the aging of the Avengers having caused many of them to simply "give up" on the search for A'ddar, once can assume the killer will never be brought to justice.
    • Oman: Sultan Raaji finally deploys the last remnants of troops into the sparse, merchant and militaristic city of Doha in an attempt to quickly defeat the Qatari Provisional Government. The troops had seceded in quickly occupying the coast, but soon would begin to fight the longest fight of their lives as the Qatari scum had placed all of their soldiers in Doha a few months prior. The war would eventually become a stalemate, as the Omani troops would be able to occupy parts of the city, but would lose the occupations as quickly. After losing a large portion of our military, we fully retreat from the battle, knowing we had succeeded in at least killing most of their troops. Sultan Raaji agrees to settle the peace treaty in Cyprus.
    • Qatari Provisional Government: Not expecting the large deployment of Omani troops at the coast, Sultan Munjid deploys all of our military to the coast in an attempt to push them out of Doha and/or kill them all. The attempted siege of Doha is declared a failed battle for us, as although we seceded in pushing them out of Doha, we also lost large swaths of our military. The battle left many of the homes of our citizens destroyed. Sultan Munjid agrees to settle the peace treaty in Cyprus.
    • Zakariyya Emirate: With both sides quickly killing most of their troops in a single siege, troops quickly occupy large amounts of territory from both sides, and with talks about a peace treaty meant to be settled in Cyprus, Sultan Kaleem Zakariyya agrees to make his state official while in Cyprus. The city, Al Hajaraj, expands more as urbanization continues.
  • Papal States: Although the Council has been taking a darned long time, the Pope is still sure it will bear good fruits, especially given the arrival of a delegation from the Reactionary Schism of Antipope Alexander. The Pope writes a private letter to the former inmates of the human zoo, saying the Roman Church had always demanded its closure, and offering them a pension in Rome if they so wish. The Coptic Church is asked of their opinion of the proposals at the Council [Mod response maybe? Ethiopia hasn't posted in a while]. The Vicar General of Rome and the Secretary of State, inspired by Neo-scholastic thinking, especially the works of the late Father Kant, draw up secret proposals for the establishment of a parliament of sorts to assist with the secular governance of the States. It would be made up of representatives of the various parts of society, the clergy, nobility, artisans, merchants, gentry, the guilds, and the peasantry. However, given the rise of more radical movements, the two keep their plans on the down-low for now. Missions continue.
  • Scandinavia: King Gustav dies of old age while his son Erik an incompetent King who spent more of his time on women on ale then the Kingdom a strong Liberal sentiment begins to grow within court and with the death of King's best adviser the realm falls into debt.
    • Prince Eric's Land: They increase farming and expand on the coast 50 px to the east and west  
    • Scandinavian African Company : Prince General Erik sends more men to the south of Africa to reinforce the position there, the total population of the colony there are 15,000 settlers with another 5000 Professional Soldiers. The claimant most supporting the Scandinavian Kingdom is given 50 Scandinavian soldiers, while a stone wall, is erected around Port Maria. While in West Africa the Garrisons covering the mouth of the Gambia are given Garrisons of 500 men.
    • Greenland: As the colony is granted slight autonomy many colonist move to the West coast 50 px.
  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies and adapt more plants to the Swahili climate. The army continues convincing contracted servants. We continue colonial expansion in Northern Somalia, in the South and in the Malindi and Mombassa area. Colonisation steadily increase as medicine and weaponry becomes more widespread. Several libraries are built in Swahili. Technological advances speed up as a result of the cultural and technological exchanges in the embassies. The Madrassah of Dars As Salaam begins its construction.
    • Lakshadweep: The island of Lakshadweep continues development.
    • Sefuwa: The new colonists land on a new place in Western Africa that is not controlled by any other nation. They name the colony Sefuwa.
    • Huriya: The licensing system is put into place. The port in Inhassoro continues to be built.
    • Rowzi: Mosques are constructed to help spread Islam. The king of Rowzi is asked to convert to Islam. The Danangombe-Sofala Road continues construction.
  • The Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot: Sheep farmers keep breeding more sheep making the price drop slowly. The National Congress after hearing the news of the new philosophy in the Iberian colonies hold a secret special meeting to discuss what they should do and how to react to them. Lucentum Officially replaces Mzer as the capital of the nation. The Mzerkan army also begin to introduce horses to the army for high ranks. These ranks are more based upon skill then birth. The Army also begins to introduce standardised uniforms were people can buy own equipment or get uniforms from the state that hold to the minimum requirement for armour.
  • Russia: To escape the cold, many Siberian settlers emigrate from Vostok and Sakhatsk to Novoruthenia and Tuvov. These settlers move inland up the Nushagak and Susitna Rivers while Fur settlers continue to expand Tuvov's domain Eastwards along the coast. St. Paul and St. George Islands are colonized and put under the administration of Aleutia same as Adak Island. The new boss of the Russian Pacific Company, Andrei Gorbachev in a meeting in the company headquarters in Vostokgrad, cuts company tribute funds to China, claiming that God, and not the Chinese emperor, is the King of Heaven. Ships are added to the Pacific Homefleet stationed in Port Sibir and the Alaska Squadron. The town of Cinigrad (OTL Anchorage) is made the capital of the Tuvov colony.
  • United Kingdom of Great Britain: England has 6.9 million people and inside of that London has a population of 0.8 million, Wales has 0.6 million, Ireland has 30 million people and Scotland 1.1 million. The British army has 3000 in Portsmouth, 3000 in Aldershot, 2000 in Scotland, 3000 in Ireland while 8000 in Arcadia, 2000 in Casablanca, 1000 in English Maiam, 1000 in Haiti as well as 500 in St George, St Helena, New Canterbury and Bay of Kost. 10,000 militia are called up and sent to defend and fortify Plymouth, Torquay, Poole and Cowes. The fleet is divided with 150 ships stationed in Portsmouth, 150 ships stationed in Bristol and 50 in New London. The British East Indian company continues to operate well with trade and running an army. The inheritance tax continues to see a slow build up of land. Cavalry innovations such as Cuirassier and Hussars are made after fighting with Indian natives in Arcadia. With things in France happening over the devout British King's unhappiness about persecution of Jews, human zoos and anti-pope in addition to obviously desiring French colonies. 10,000 troops of the British army and 60 ships seize city of Le Harve and then defend and fortify it against the French counterattack.
    • British Arcadia:  In addition local militia forces do exist but they aren't standing and are spread out although they are armed. Seeing Burgundy invade and aware the settlers are unhappy the British army and colonial militias launch a push into Iroquois lands. A large group of several thousand settlers push 50 px into OTL Pennsylvania from the south establishing farms and stuff as they go with 3000 professional British troops and 2000 militia. If the Iroquois counterattack then we defend the advancing settlers. The militia is commanded by Alexander Washington a landowner and surveyor. There is a militia of 21,000 citizens who, are while nonprofessional, do have weapons and supplies. The colonies are at 2.3 million people. The Royal Navy continue patrols in the Atlantic. The British government make an effort to move more volunteers from Africa including its new holdings in Morocco and from India. Seeing the issues of forest fires, in April artificial fires are started to burn away a lot of fuel before summer and trees are cut down near settlements and general removal of flammable substances. 
  • Kingdom of Burgundy: Guyana expands 50 px inland, looking to claim the Guyana Shield. New Germany expands 50 px into OTL Mississippi. Patagonië expands 50 px up the coast. New Netherlands continues to expand into OTL upstate New York after the defeat of the Iroquois. Following their allies in the Italian League, Burgundy declares war on France. The main Burgundian battle fleet, the High Seas Fleet, is sent to blockade Calais, where an army of 100,000 (60,000 professional, 40,000 nonprofessional) lays siege.
  • Ququququ: The Koito reform continues and. As the Ququququ nation is finally stable enough, the outlying tribes are contacted in order to induce them into the Union. (basically, slow map expansion, approved by Feud). The Japanese contact continues, and Ququququ continue adopting children born of interracial relations in the Jin port, in order to avoid the infanticide. With a solidified rule the Ququququ are now a most formidable force in the region, with infrastructural advancement putting them on a higher level than any other tribes, as well as their linguistic unity. Moreover, the Ququququ slowly organize their military and begin creating better weapons compared to their non-organized neighbours, using metals such as iron, with guidance of the Nangang emissaries.
  • Iberia: Maranhão continues expanding into Maranhão, Tocantins and Piauí. Nova Lusitânia expands down the Arauca, Casanare and Meta Rivers. Exploration of the Branco River continues, extending Iberia's claims to the OTL state of Roraima.

1761

Another day another. Nate please copy paste my turn SupremeSensualSamrāṭSky 21:58, August 12, 2017 (UTC)

The Zulu nation starts to break down in civil unrest. Various raids from the parties involved begin to attack the Scandinavian settlers. In addition, there is a constant issue with fever outbreaks.

The Russian vessel sent to Hawaii is lost at sea.

Some scholars at the library of Nicosia are surprised at the apparent changes to the calendar, as ordinarily it would actually be the 1040 years since the beginning of the Abbasid Dynasty (in the Islamic (lunar) calendar, it falls behind the solar calendar ten or 11 days every year, so it gains three years every century. Thus 1010 years in the Gregorian Calendar is actually 1040 years in the Islamic calendar).

The Republicans, mainly among middle class Portuguese-speaking people in Lower Arcadia (Central America), works more for general consolidation of governates on the continent. 

  • Empire of Uluru: Art and music continue to be developed in Ngarrindjeri. Literature continues to be compiled at the library of Ngarrindjer in clay tablets. Religion continues to be centralized and organized at the White Chapel. Economy continues to grow with more farmlands spread and more ships for fishing created. Kangaroo Island is more developed as well for future annexation. A central bank is established using Taro as currency (like the Incas). The wives and concubines help to raise the sons of Yannathan at Ngarrindjeri. The northern war continues as Yannathan's forces proceeds to invades and besieges Wagiman. 
  • Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot: The sheep population keeps growing slowly to 750 sheep. The king as weak as he is begins to give the National Congress minor powers of foreign relations. They in their turn use this power to track the republican movements in Iberia, but waiting to do any actions for a year.
  • Deccan Maharajya: Government investment in the construction of canal systems in the past two year bears fruit. Agricultural stability and productivity increase. Irrigation projects in the Godavari-delta area are started. The Krishna, Godavari and Kaveri are the three major rivers which flow in the Maharajya. A noble presents the idea of a centralized weights and measures system. The idea is perceived by the council as highly beneficial to trade and will thereby increase the revenue of the state. Technical standards are decided upon, new standards are set up using the decimal system. It is decided that the new system will be put to use next year. Hearing of the war in Europe, the council decides to reclaim the French outposts and raid French colonies. A force of 30,000 troops lays siege to the French outpost on the Carnatic, including 5000 line infantry. Another 40,000 troops sail with 175 ships and invade the French outpost bordering Bengal. A group of 25 ships sails to the French colony of Java but are forced to retreat. While returning the group observes an island in the distance (OTL Christmas Island). Schools and hospitals open up in southern Kerala. Parts of cities are reconstructed in an attempt to achieve Kollam-style development. The Kollam School of Arts is now very popular in the nation. The production of wootz steel experiences a resurgence and metal craftsmen are patronized by many nobles. A major drought occurs in North Karnataka and arrangements are made for drought mitigation and irrigation in the area by next year. Food is transported from nearby areas with the help of government funding to suppress the effects of the drought. After the defeat near Java, the nobles decide that a Chola-style highly organized naval force is required. The elephant corps is revived as a small unit, mainly concerned with matters of prestige and grandeur. The harvest festival of Pongal has grown to become the major festival of the nation and is celebrated nation-wide. The second most widely celebrated festival is Ugadi, start of the new year.
  • Russia: Nobody notices the Russian ship going to Hawaii has vanished (Sky, your 26 years late on knowing I've know about Hawaii). Farming begins at Petrov Point in Novoruthenia. Making the area a little bit prosperous. The fertile land provided by the River and what is the melting snow is causing the land to be fertile for Russian crops. Tuvov is expanded Up the Susitna River and Eastwards along the coast. Savinkov, the almighty Vozdh of Russia, considers with his generals of a possible war against Scandinavia if it were to join with France in this new European War. A few more ships are added to the Pacific Squadron. The Idea of the notion that Chinas claim to heaven is fake spreads around Russia, outraging eastern priests who in their right minds want to hang the Chinese emperor by a lamppost for claiming to be a messenger of heaven. A couple other groups of people compare Chinese claim to that of Islam. This rhetoric mainly stays in Siberia but also moves to communities of Russians living in Yakutia, Mongolia, and Turkey. Small trade with Salish, and tiny exchanging of ideas, most notably, the arrival of Priest Nikolai Rasputin to Walla-Walla, spreading Orthodox Christianity to the natives.
    • OOC: Yea, declaring war on your ally becaue they are fighting imperialism
  • Iberia: With France occupied in Mediterranean conflicts, Iberia decides to pursue another colonial war with France for control of the East Indies trade. The war is undeclared, but begins de facto with movements against the French colonies in Timor and the Spice Islands. A force of 26 ships, 3000 troops, and about 5000 nonprofessional troops or native allies takes Lifau/Pante Macassar by surprise and captures the settlement. They then capture the main port of Kupang, bringing (in theory) all of Timor under Iberian rule. The native kingdoms who were vassals to the French are not so willing to accept these changes, however, and so Iberian influence in West Timor is confined to the coast. Kupang is fortified with sturdier defenses to replace the dilapidated French walls. The forces at Kupang are reinforced by a second fleet of 20 ships and 12,000 troops. Both fleets sail north and invade the Maluku Islands. After a fierce battle at Ambon and naval action in the southern archipelagoes, Iberia seizes the southern Maluku Islands and brings Seram Island under its influence. The Timor colony continues to develop. Trading posts are founded at Amahai and Solor. Maranhão continues expanding into Maranhão, Tocantins and Piauí. Nova Lusitânia expands down the Arauca, Casanare, and Meta Rivers. Exploration of the Branco River continues, extending Iberia's claims into the OTL state of Roraima. Settlement and expansion of Mêcicipi and Texas continues.
  • Jin dynasty: Due to death threats from Russian Orthodox clergymen, the Qianlong Emperor orders the expulsion of Russians residing in Yakutia. Meanwhile, plans of the conquest of Mongolia and its annexation as a protectorate are discussed within the imperial court, with emissaries being sent to several Mongol chiefs hoping to acquire a defector and a puppet leader to ease administration (MOD RESPONSE). China abolishes restrictions on funding on Turkey, due to the abundance of bullion from tributary missions arriving from Europe. Advisors are sent to Turkey to help its modernization, with Emperor Qianlong hoping to establish joint-training exercises in the Tarim basin, and the establishment of a small permanent Chinese force of a thousand soldiers (MOD RESPONSE). The policy of militarization continues to be pursued, with shipyards, arsenals, and industrial facilities dedicated to producing armaments and other military-related objects being built. With Russian naval expansion in the Pacific, the cap on the number of naval vessels is lifted from 800 ships to 850 ships. Another weaponized treasure junk is made, while the other 49 ships are comprised of both panokseon and geobukseon. Basic sanitation continues to be promoted: public bathhouses, spas, latrines, and sewage systems are all built. Adequate irrigation alongside other projections such as mass distribution of pluviometres and water gauges create an increase in the productivity of agriculture. Alchemists begin utilizing glass vessels in order to observe chemicals. To facilitate transportation and growing merchantile acitvities, paved roads are built. Commercialization and the division of labour continues, resulting from a heightened demand for commercial goods from both the domestic and foreign market. Due to new popularity (through hierarchal diffusion) of tropical agricultural produce such as bananas and taro obtained from increasing trade with the Haegajang polities (principally Angu), an economic bubble begins, with its value increasing faster than its demand.
    • Nivkh Commandery: Tiger Pastries Inc., a subsidiary of Lady Lin Tea, continues to flourish as a business. The Nivkh Prince-Governor (which is the member of the Nivkh Ayzik branch of the House of Kim) continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively.
    • Sakha (protectorate): The Khan continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively. Siberian crab-apples become a local renowned fruit, and is particularly prized in Korea and northern China.
    • Xizang (protectorate): Lhasa, the capital, is expanded and modernized. The Tibetan clergy continues to administer the protectorate, with its leader, the Dalai Lama, being considered a vassal or substitute monarch. Many Tibetans are encouraged (via financial incentives) to become more sedentary, with food instead being supplied from nearby Sichuan (thereby reducing overreliance in inefficient herding).
    • Port of Nangang: The Emperor decides send more emissaries to the Angu peoples and peripheral tribes in Haegajang in-order to enrich the knowledge of their culture, while sends more colonists to cement the colony of Nangang from any tribal intrusions. Mixed-racial children continue to be orphaned and sent to the Angu.
      • Yeah china should not know about the rhetoric because it is only in Russian Communities and has very little influence. So this expelling of Russian shouldn't have happened because why would the emperor feel threatened by an angry priest. There is also absolutely no way the Pope would no ANYTHING about this immediately
      • I gotta agree on this one -Feud
      • Papal Diplomacy: The resident Papal Nuncio at the Imperial Court condemns the threats by the Orthodox priests, and hopes that the incident will not affect the Great Jin's long-standing magnanimity and munificence towards the Christians within its borders.
  • Papal States: Pope Michael writes to his friends and allies in Italy, stating that their assumption was correct and that he has no objection to Belka's ally peacefully crossing the States. The Ecumenical Council drags on, with the Orthodox delegation still needing to subscribe to the compromise between the Pope and the antipope Alexander. The Copts are invited to finalise the work of the Council of Alexandria and fully reunify with the rest of Christendom, gaining an elector in the College of Cardinals in the process. With the political turmoil in Zulu, the Immaculata missionaries take their chance and set up small missions/hospitals in the region [MOD response please].
  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies and adapt more plants to the Swahili climate. The army continues convincing contracted servants. We continue colonial expansion in Northern Somalia, in the South and in the Malindi and Mombassa area. Colonisation steadily increase as medicine and weaponry becomes more widespread. Technological advances speed up as a result of the cultural and technological exchanges in the embassies. The grand port of Dars As Salaam begins its construction.
    • Lakshadweep: The island of Lakshadweep continues development.
    • Sefuwa: The colony of Sefuwa begins the construction of a port.
    • Huriya:  The port in Inhassoro continues to be built.
    • Rowzi: Mosques are constructed to help spread Islam. The king of Rowzi is asked to convert to Islam. The Danangombe-Sofala Road continues construction.
  • Sultanate of Cyprus: The completion of the Great Library of Nicosia is a great moment for everyone in the capital. However, Sultan Saif feel ashamed that he celebrated the anniversary of the Abbasid Dynasty according to the Gregorian Calendar instead of the highly superior Islamic Calendar (in his opinion). After all, he was raised by the Caliph himself. Instead of recognizing it was his error (probably because he got used to the Gregorian Calendar after living 19 years in the Ethiopian Empire), he claim it is the fault of the bad influence of the previous owners of Cyprus, the Greeks and the crusaders. In order to enforce his vision of a new Islamic renaissance, he ban the use of the Gregorian calendar on the island and enforce the use of the Islamic calendar. This is widely unpopular with the small orthodox Greek minority still living on the island, and not well received by the traders. A few scholars meet the Sultan to complain, but he imprisons them, and also warns that he will do the same for everyone secretly using the Gregorian calendar. Saif continue to finance Arabic artists, and ask the architect Shaheer Kazi to expand the palace and make it a monument to the glory of the Abbasid Dynasty, once again cutting other expanses to finance his construction.
  • Belkan Federation: The way with Ionia continues with Smyrna and Nicaea falling this year due to the surprise of the assault. The Belkans opt to meet the Ionian main army in the field and bring nearly 200,000 men to bear on the 40,000 strong Ionian army. Field Marshal Yanevski takes control of this battle in a bid to practice new mass assault tactics. (algo to come). The further invasion also causes several border incidents between Belkan forces and the Sultanate of rum as the small coastal strip of territory is occupied to facilitate greater movement of the armies.
  • Italian League: War continues against Savoy and France, with more soldiers being mobilized to replace losses. The other half of the available manpower is raised and in northern Italy in preparation to be moved elsewhere. By the start of 1761 (as per the algorithms and the war page) all of Savoy has been occupied, and Italian forces push into Provence, winning a key battle at Arles midway through the year. Carlo Bonaparte, sensing there is some confusion about his technical title after the most recent government changes, responses to criticism that he's no better than a monarch by stepping down and ensuring that elections continue. With the southern front now holding its position and fortifying to defend against counterattacks, additional reinforcements are sent into Burgundy to support our ally in the northern front. In addition to the 270,000 soldiers having been sent into the region, under the command of Napoleon Bonaparte, an additional 250,000 are to be sent north in order to prepare for an assault on the city of Paris. The government issues the Rimini Proclamation, calling all Italians to revolt against French rule and join the war, and by 1761 the first Savoyard recruits are raised. In North Africa forces are sent to seize France's possessions on the coast, and later in the year the forts in West Africa are also besieged. We also send expeditions to seize some of France's colonies with allied support. With the war essentially over in France, however, we propose the Treaty of Paris to end hostilities.
  • Jaffarid Arabia: Modernization of the military and navy continues. After signing the treaty of Nicosia ending the Omani Civil War, another era of peace ensues, with general conflict having died down after Civil War. A conference is held between all the leaders of Arabia, Azerbaijan, Shirvan, Ganja, Circassia, Dulkadir, Oman, and the newly created Qatar and Zakariyya Emirate to discuss the future of possible conflicts within the Arabian state and to prevent them from occurring. We announce that we support France in their war, although we will not militarily interfere for the moment.
  • Scandinavia: They join their allies France, and begin mobilizing their fleet and army. 80,000 Professionals and raise 200,000 Conscripts putting 10,000 Pros on the Russian Border along with the 50,000 Conscripts. They begin constructing a great fortress near Helsinki. They also send 50,000 Pro's and 75,000 Conscripts to assist Sicily in their independence war and to invade the Italian Homeland.

1762

Another day another Yu-Gi-Oh promo card SupremeSensualSamrāṭSky 22:06, August 13, 2017 (UTC)

Sicily (including the mainland territory of Naples) declares independence under the leader Giuseppe Molinari. Molinari is a great general.

"Napoleon" "Bonaparte" dies. End of story. It is later revealed that he was not in fact really Napoleon Bonaparte, just a man who strikingly resembled the late son of Carlo Bonaparte and assumed his identity for the purpose of reaching high society and getting military command.

Maghreb invades the territory the Italian League stole from them and reclaims it in the name of god.

The leading Ionian general is now a great general.

Although the Pope has allowed the Italian troops to cross the land, the common people are not okay with this, as the Italian troops stole their crops and disrupted their living. Many of them are angry and call for a war of vengeance.

The Avignon Schism cones to an end as antipope Alexander renounces his claims to the papacy. With the successful Council coming to a close, Pope Michael will resign next year. Papal States, Belka, Cologne, France, Austria, Burgundy, Iberia, Great Britain, Italy, Sicily, and Ethiopia, please vote in next year's conclave here .

  • Italian League: We receive news of the unexpected declaration of war from Scandinavia, as well as the revolt in Sicily. By this time the war in France is more or less over, with all of Savoy, eastern France, and Paris having been seized. As such France is forced to the negotiation table, and we begin focusing on the other conflicts. In addition to the 250,000 Burgundian soldiers, 200,000 Italians stay in the occupied territory to keep the peace. The remaining 500,000 men approximately returns to northern Italy to defend the nation. The 600,000 men mobilized and stationed in northern Italy the previous year is ordered to immediately seize Sicily and capture Giuseppe Molinari, with additional units in the north ready to be used if needed. By the end of the year the government is also prepared to launch strikes against Maghreb if ready. (More to come)
  • Empire of Uluru: Art and music continue to be developed in Ngarrindjeri. Literature continues to be compiled at the library of Ngarrindjer in clay tablets. Religion continues to be centralized and organized at the White Chapel. Economy continues to grow with more farmlands spread and more ships for fishing created. Kangaroo Island is more developed as well for future annexation. A central bank is established using Taro as currency (like the Incas). The wives and concubines help to raise the sons of Yannathan at Ngarrindjeri. The Northern War continues as Yannathan invades and besieges OTL Darwin.
  • Japan: Shogun Hiroheto Asgawa becomes the new leader. Emperor Tahi begins setting about a new round of reforms to better the navy. An envoy is sent to Russia asking for help bringing the Japanese Navy into the modern era. In exchange, Russian traders and Missionaries would be allowed into Hokkaido and Nagasaki. Enlightenment ideas from the Jin Dynasty are carried over. The Shogun makes a visit to the various states of Europe and becomes obsessed with European Culture, bringing various European books to Japan to be rewritten in Japanese. The Japanese Navy continues to grow as the Shogun is appointed Shirei-Kan Kaigun or Naval Commander of the Japanese Navy. Exploration continues of the pacific and we establish a government and naval base on Sulawesi. We trade more and more with Hawaii and Ququququ as we attempt to outcompete the other powers in the region. A Japanese ship is blown off course and lands in Fiji. They establish a small settlement on the island. Settlement also begins on the Solomon Islands near Ququququ.
    • The Russian government and Russian Pacific Company agree, the RTK more happily than the former.
    • Papal Diplomacy: The resident Papal Nuncio in the Shogun's court offers to facilitate the importation of scientific texts from Europe, which the numerous Japanese Catholic priests would be able to translate perfectly.
      • Japan thanks the Papal Nuncio for this.
  • Russia: Religious ferver begins to die down as only a fringe group of radicals in Yakutia hold this belief, calling them selves the Vera Credentes or True Believers. The VC wear white robes and usually mug people and steal from Asian citizens in Siberia. St. Paul Island is colonized. Tuvov is expanded 10 px up the Susitna River, and 5 px along the eastern coastline. Novoruthenia is expanded 10 px up the Petrov River. Some people get confused where Novoruthenia is and land in OTL Port Moller and Port Heiden, beginning the reformation of the Novoaleutia colony. Savinkov readies the army sending 100,000 nonprofessional soldiers to the Scandinavian border in Finland and 15,000 to capture Courland just incase. Sensing an upcoming war, 60,000 professional soldiers along with another 100,000 nonprofessional troops are readied further.
  • Jin dynasty: The Qianlong Emperor eyes Russo-Japanese collaboration with suspicious, and launches a second edict increasing the quota of naval vessels to a thousand vessels; with the two hundred other ships being built over a period of five years. Tax rates are lowered due to the burgeoning tax base and decreased demand for funds, as the momentum of government projects has waned. A census is conducted, showing the population to be 194.8 million subjects; an increase from the 1750 census which showed a population of 170 million subjects. Advisors are sent to Turkey to help its modernization, with Emperor Qianlong hoping to establish joint-training exercises in the Tarim basin, and the establishment of a small permanent Chinese force of a thousand soldiers (MOD RESPONSE). The policy of militarization continues to be pursued, with shipyards, arsenals, and industrial facilities dedicated to producing armaments and other military-related objects being built. Basic sanitation continues to be promoted: public bathhouses, spas, latrines, and sewage systems are all built. Adequate irrigation alongside other projections such as mass distribution of pluviometres and water gauges create an increase in the productivity of agriculture. To facilitate transportation and growing merchantile acitvities, paved roads are built. Commercialization and the division of labour continues, resulting from a heightened demand for commercial goods from both the domestic and foreign market. The economic bubble on tropical goods bursts, with the value of shipments of tropical goods (particularly fruits) steeply declining to a tenth of its original value.
    • Nivkh Commandery: Tiger Pastries Inc., a subsidiary of Lady Lin Tea, continues to flourish as a business. The Nivkh Prince-Governor (which is the member of the Nivkh Ayzik branch of the House of Kim) continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively.
    • Sakha (protectorate): The Khan continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively. Siberian crab-apples become a local renowned fruit, and is particularly prized in Korea and northern China.
    • Xizang (protectorate): Lhasa, the capital, is expanded and modernized. The Tibetan clergy continues to administer the protectorate, with its leader, the Dalai Lama, being considered a vassal or substitute monarch. Many Tibetans are encouraged (via financial incentives) to become more sedentary, with food instead being supplied from nearby Sichuan (thereby reducing overreliance in inefficient herding).
    • Port of Nangang: The Emperor decides send more emissaries to the Angu peoples and peripheral tribes in Haegajang in-order to enrich the knowledge of their culture, while sends more colonists to cement the colony of Nangang from any tribal intrusions. Mixed-racial children continue to be orphaned and sent to the Angu. Nangang now has 20,000 colonists. A permanent fleet of 20 ships is sent to Nangang shipyards.
  • Sultanate of Cyprus: The renovated palace is of great beauty, an equal to the Library of Nicosia in its prestige and style. In Saif mind, it was a good investment. Others aren't so keen to agree with him on that subject, however. His repeated budget cuts have left many spheres of the government under financed. Plus, some of the more enlightened members of his court are also frustrated that he kept the conservative religious elite in power instead of giving it to the liberal Faridic supporters. Mufeed el-Galla and a few other high ranked nobles start to plot the possible removal of Saif. After all, it would be the first time a Sultan was removed from power. Saif would simply become the 4rd one to be removed from power. However, the “plot” to remove Saif is simply talks again the current regime for now, and nothing really serious is currently being organized. Saif order the construction of new coastal forts to protect the harbours and coasts of Cyprus from foreign invasion. The Sultan also begin to write many documents on his reign and his life, passing many weeks in his office without appearing in public.
  • Cologne: The University of Cologne continues to study recent developments in economic theory, and its scholars print several papers critically analysing and discussing Smyth’s theories. Archbishop Ludwich sends another letter to the Holy Roman Emperor to advocate that now is the time to bring the HRE’s state of affairs up to date with the modern day.
    • Essen: Abbess Marie remains at the Ecumenical Council. At home, the prioress’s mines are beginning to be constructed, and Essenian people are excited at the prospect of being more self-reliant. Meanwhile, Tondoese Canonesses continue to assist on the home front in Tondo, and there is a steady stream of canonesses and priests arriving in Burgundian Arcadia and New Essen. Racial tensions remain evident, but the Order of St Adelphina tries to bring about peace generally in the area.
  • Papal States: The Fifth Lateran Council finally comes to a close, having (eventually) succeeded in ending the Avignon Schism. Preparations are underway for Pope Michael's abdication next year, with Michael himself selecting which Belkan monastery he shall retire to. Meanwhile, the social unrest in the Northern part of the States leads to many, peasants, nobility, and clergy, to request war against the Italian League. Pope Michael, still a committed Belkan, and wanting to abide by the Treaty of Naples, opts to do nothing. The Legates of the individual States, however, raise the local militias and Papal forces stationed in the area and conduct retaliatory raids on the Italians without Papal consent. Given Pope Michael's immanent resignation, the Legates are willing to act with impunity (in secular matters at least). Missions conintue. The Immaculata missionaries take the opportunity of the civil unrest in the Zulu lands to open missions/hospitals [MOD response, please].
  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies and adapt more plants to the Swahili climate. The army continues convincing contracted servants. We continue colonial expansion in Northern Somalia, in the South and in the Malindi and Mombassa area. Colonisation steadily increase as medicine and weaponry becomes more widespread. Technological advances speed up as a result of the cultural and technological exchanges in the embassies. The capital is moved to Dars As Saleem, signifying a shift as the dominant culture becomes more Swahili. With the turmoil in Zulu, we contact some pro Swahili factions in Zulu and offer military and economic support.
    • Lakshadweep: The island of Lakshadweep continues development.
    • Sefuwa: The colony of Sefuwa begins the construction of a port.
    • Huriya:  The port in Inhassoro continues to be built.
    • Rowzi: Mosques are constructed to help spread Islam. The king of Rowzi converts to Islam. The Danangombe-Sofala Road continues construction.
  • Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot: Lucentum's growth begins to slow down. Sheep farmers keep breeding more sheep increasing their population. They also begin to dye sheep for the first time in a brown yellowish colour and in red. The National Congress of the kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot sends ambasadors to some of the republicans of Iberian Arcadia. The king also begins to slowly go ill but not yet in danger of life.
  • Sicily: King Charles VI learns of the rebellion by Molinari that is attempting to usurp his power and becomes determined to defeat the third party. Sicily had given its entire army to the war in the north, with the king himself currently in Savoy. As such the king requests that he take what remains of the Sicilian army, and with Italian backing, invade the rebel held parts of Sicily, which he presumes to have very little men given how much of Sicily was mobilized. We condemn the traitorous Papal legates for taking advantage of the situation to cause havok across Italy. Charles V is believed to be one of the raiders.
  • Jaffarid Sultanate: Since I apparently cannot modernize, we just remain using the same technology and same military strategies and tactics that we had inherited from the Rashidun Caliphate and other states. Gradual reforms are continued to be made in hopes of spreading the acceptance of all religions and cultures to the far regions of Arabia. Urbanization is spread across the entirety of the Near East.
  • Ququququ: The Koito reform continues and as the Ququququ nation is finally stable enough, the outlying tribes are contacted in order to induce them into the Union. (basically, slow map expansion, approved by Feud). The Japanese contact continues, and Ququququ continue adopting children born of interracial relations in the Jin port, in order to avoid the infanticide. With a solidified rule the Ququququ are now a most formidable force in the region, with infrastructural advancement putting them on a higher level than any other tribes, as well as their linguistic unity. Moreover, the Ququququ slowly organize their military and begin creating better weapons compared to their non-organized neighbours, using metals such as iron, with guidance of the Nangang emissaries.
  • Iberia: The recent military successes against France in the East Indies have given Iberia a strong foothold in the region and a stake in the (now waning) spice trade, breaking the long-standing French monopoly. This year, Iberia focuses on developing its existing territory rather than launching further expeditions. Some naval skirmishes and smaller battles occur in the Savu Sea, however, putting several islands of East Nusa Tenggara under Iberian control, including Alor and Solor. The Iberians temporarily ally with the ruler of Seba and drive the French from Savu. A fort is constructed on Solor to secure the archipelago, while Savu reverts to native rule. Maranhão continues expanding along the Tocantins and Araguaia rivers and into the OTL states of Maranhão, Tocantins and Piauí. Nova Lusitânia expands down the Arauca, Casanare, and Meta Rivers. Settlement and expansion of Mêcicipi and Texas continues.
  • Kingdom of Burgundy: Guyana expands 50 px inland, looking to claim the remainder of the Guyana Shield. New Germany expands 50 px into OTL Mississippi. Patagonië expands 50 px up the coast. New Netherlands continues to expand into newly acquired land from the Iroquois, and settlers continue to move there, with the settlement of Ramaaker (OTL Rochester, New York) growing the fastest. With the capture of Calais, the Picardy region is brought under Burgundian occupation, and several border regions, like Nevers, that were once Burgundian territory are reoccupied.

Disclamer: Please pardon me if any of this seems misinformed or exaggarating the situations of the game. The other mods have been unusually absent the entire evening, so I've been having to wear many hats at once. If you have an issue that needs clarification, please take it up to the other mods. 

The six-stringed guitar is invented in Russia.

Earthquake in Vasiligrad damages Hagia Sophia.

Savoy, Corsica, and Sardinia break off from French rule as independent states, and all enter a pact with Molinari against the Italian League. France recognizes their independence in a separate treaty and sends support.

In Sicily, Molinari and his troops retreat deeper into the peninsula as they flee from Italian trops. The arrival of a Papal Legate and more troops is not enough reinforcements. Molinari dies in a last stand battle but the last of his troops are able to escape with the help of the other independence forces.

The first chocolate factory is opened in New Amsterdam.

France offers a peace agreement with Britain and Burgundy, allowing them to take some ports and territory in France, as well as colonies in Africa and Arcadia to end the conflict.

Many public newspapers and pamphlets circulate in Maiam among the middle class Hispanic immigrants on both scholastic and enlightenment thought. 

Due to the expansions of the Italian League, the other states of Italy fully adopts Neoscholastic political ideology for their governments, drawing them closer to the Pope.

  • Japan: The Shogun becomes even more obsessed with western culture. He begins limiting the power of the Shinto and Buddhist establishments and making the Christian establishments more politically involved in Japanese life. He forms a Parliament of governors of the various territories of Japan to be equally represented under the power of the Emperor and Shogun. The Shogun begins investing in european technology as he and others become more interested. We continue exploring the pacific and establish a settlement in New Britain where we engage in better trade with the Ququququ. It is named New Hokkaido. We begin focusing more on the military and specifically the navy. A Japanese Pacific Company is formed to mimic the Russian one. We send an envoy to Iberia about making a treaty about Sulawesi (Player Response).
    • Formosa: Colonization continues as a Half Japanese Half Formosan Native is appointed governor and and a mixed Formosan-Japanese Race develops as the upper class.
    • Sulawesi: Pamphlets are spread around the island and to other areas of Indonesia about how Japan can offer fair treatment to natives and protect them from being oppressed racially by europeans. To support this, a half Sulawesi-half Japanese person is made governor of Japanese Sulawesi.
  • Empire of Uluru: Art and music continue to be developed in Ngarrindjeri. Literature continues to be compiled at the library of Ngarrindjer in clay tablets. Religion continues to be centralized and organized at the White Chapel. Economy continues to grow with more farmlands spread and more ships for fishing created. Kangaroo Island is more developed as well for future annexation. A central bank is established using Taro as currency (like the Incas). The wives and concubines help to raise the sons of Yannathan at Ngarrindjeri. The Northern War continues as Yannathan invades across the Daly river
  • Scandinavia: They Offer a Peace Treaty and NAP to Burgundy and Britain, citing the countries themselves had good relations prior (I kinda forgot we were at war lol) (Player response). They also offer the Sicilian rebels food and arms.(Mod Response) They Begin to expand along the Gambian River, as there is No Maghrebi force there to stop them, they also increase trading relations with Benin and Mali. They offer Flintlock rifles to the Mali for Slaves, Salt and Gold. (Mod Response) (really wish I had another S). Popular general Sven Hardrada a descendent of the Legendary Viking Harold Hardrada, begins rising through the ranks, He is only 30 and is already in command of 10,000 Veteran Scandinavian troops. The Home Fleet is expanded to 100 ships, and an attempt is make contact and establish Friendly relations with the Zaiyir offering the Slave trade. They make an Offer to Purchase the Islands of OTL Comoros from their Owner (Which is either Somalia or Iberia) They offer five million Krals. The Royal Fleet commanded by the brother of Sven Hadrada, Harald is given command of the 100 ship fleet They set out from the docks of Copenhagen in early, April they are carrying 25,000 Professional Soldiers and another 50,000 Conscripts led by Sven Hadrada . In Arcadia raids are made at Burgundian New Foundland, as around 500 ships are given Letters of Marque to fight King Eric's enemies in the Seven seas. In South Africa the Royal Army attempts to convince the Zulu to attack the Burgundian colonies.
    • Swahili Dip: Comoros would not be sold, but we suggest the Scandanavians to rent a trade quarter near the Zanzibari Islands.
        • Scandi Dip: They offer to buy the largest Zanibar Island and to get exclusive trade deals with the Somali Sultanate for five million Krals.
  • Scandinavian Prince Eric's Land: the Expand to the South East towards OTL Lake Superior they also have explored as far south as to make contact with the Iroquois they offer a Trade of Guns and Rum for Fur. (Mod Response) They also Promise to never expand into Iroquois territory. The Colonial Fleet is built up to 20 Warships.
  • Scandinavian West Indies: They begin using thousands of slaves to work the sugar plantations on St. Thomas along with a basic dozen plantations in St. John's.
  • Scandinavian Cape: Port Maria is still there any Zulu attack is destroyed by the Garrison of 2,500 Professional Soldiers and 2,500 Militia men along. The Population of the Colony has grown to 25,000 with 10,000 colonists arriving in the past five years.
  • I killed the cape colony, please remain it as such.
  • Belkan Federation: Vozdh Sakharov and his generals continue on into Ionia and this year fight two major engagements in fields near Smyrna pushing the Ionian armies back and causing notable casualties to the Ionian forces. He offers them generous surrender terms including reparations for families of the dead, and their prolonged independence and not becoming a Belkan state or province on the condition they bend the knee once again Scraw mod plz. The victories near Smyrna are considered an absolute triumph of Belkas new military competency with its armed forces and there is much fanfare in the military and civilian circles about Belka "reclaiming" its lost imperial territories. However, in the event of no surrender from the Ionians Yanevski considers obliterating the Ionian army and then moving on to Rum once it's all said and done. With this all going on, the Belkan forces at home begin to be repositioned and forces are put on the Italian border to prevent further shenanigans from crossing into Belkan territory. The adoption of Ships of the line is complete, and the Belkan navy begins to specialize down towards a smaller more potent fleet while the Army takes precedence again, switching to a Land focus in all its doctrine and combat. With the capitulation of Ionia, the Grand Prince is officially deposed and a pro Belkan government put in place, a man by the name of George Kalros, a Nicaean born pro belkan who forms a government in short order, following many cues from the Belkan revolution. now secure, the 300,000 Belkan troops begin to mobilize along the Border of Rum and occupy the small sliver of territory between the Nicaea enclave, and the rest of Ionia. This quite obviously leads to tension between the two nations. However, Vozdh Sakharov is informed that the Ionian General, Justinian Paleologos has agreed to accept a commission into the Belkan Army as a Field Marshall and with promises of enriching and expanding Ionia joins Yanevski on the Border with Rum building up the logistical hubs in the region to handle and subdue Rum. Brusilov and Vasilev move west and after much careful planning meet with the Vozdh and agree that in order for Belka to Enrich itself and reclaim former glory and prestige, the nation must expand outward. Not for territorial gain, but for wealth, looting, and in general to make the Belkan nation once again a state worth fearing in europe citing the predecessors challenging of the Entire HRE and coming out ahead. With more of their population at hand for use in the army, the Vozdh signs off on both the plans for rum and the secret plan for Austria as he plans to decapitate the HRE and end the Empire once and for all allowing chaos to set in. The Belkan navy also adopts a new squadron system as it draws its naval forces down to roughly 150 ships decommissioning many and appropriating their cannons for use in the Belkan Army.
    • Ionia accepts. The great general, who has close personal relationships with many high ranking officials and generals in the Belkan military, assures his people that they will be well treated. -scraw
  • Italian League: With France offering peace to our allies, we offer France a peace treaty in which we will simply take the single city (1 pixel) in Africa, as well as Ligura and the Italian territories we had claimed, and that we captured (via algorithm). With the war over in Sicily a large garrison still remains in the south, but we now move to invade Savoy and the other nations that declared independence from us, and are no longer part of France or backed by them as per their treaty. More men are mobilized throughout the nation and join the army moving back to the north. Considering there was already a garrison in Savoy the independence movement is believed to be easy to put down. They are ordered to attack on sight any Papal forces within our own nation, after their treacherous raiding and piracy into our nation, causing the government to simply treat them as criminals. By the end of the year (see algo) the three rebellious nations are occupied and decisively defeated, and as such we continue our plans in the original Treaty of Paris. (More to come)
  • Jin dynasty: With the Korean delegation in Fukuoka learning of the state patronage of Christianity over Shintoism and Buddhism (the traditional religions), the news is sent to the Qianlong Emperor. This edict is seen a threat to traditional establishments, particularly Confucian doctrines previously patronized by the ruling class. With Korea experiencing three invasions from Japan (all of which had been repelled), the Qianlong Emperor begins to grow distressed from sudden Japanese naval expansion and cooperation with the Russians. The shipyards around Busan are reinvigorated, regaining its regional preeminence as a port, a title previously held by Mokpo to the west in the Jeolla prefecture. Meanwhile, the allocation of ships changes; a third of ships will patrol the Korea Strait, the Sea of Korea, and the Bohai Sea. Another quarter will patrol South China Sea, and another fifth in the Taiwan strait. The remaining fifth are sent into reserve, resting in either the Shanghai, Haikou, Dalyeon, or Incheon docks. The entirety of Penghu islands is annexed, and sovereignty over the northern half of the South China Sea is affirmed. Meanwhile, due to logistical strains on the governance of its Haegajang colonies, emissaries are sent to Iberia offering joint-administration (IBERIAN RESPONSE). The policy of militarization continues to be pursued, with shipyards, arsenals, and industrial facilities dedicated to producing armaments and other military-related objects being built. Basic sanitation continues to be promoted: public bathhouses, spas, latrines, and sewage systems are all built. Adequate irrigation alongside other projections such as mass distribution of pluviometres and water gauges create an increase in the productivity of agriculture. To facilitate transportation and growing merchantile acitvities, paved roads are built. Commercialization and the division of labour continues, resulting from a heightened demand for commercial goods from both the domestic and foreign market.
    • Nivkh Commandery: Tiger Pastries Inc., a subsidiary of Lady Lin Tea, continues to flourish as a business. The Nivkh Prince-Governor (which is the member of the Nivkh Ayzik branch of the House of Kim) continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively.
    • Sakha (protectorate): The Khan continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively. Siberian crab-apples become a local renowned fruit, and is particularly prized in Korea and northern China.
    • Xizang (protectorate): Lhasa, the capital, is expanded and modernized. The Tibetan clergy continues to administer the protectorate, with its leader, the Dalai Lama, being considered a vassal or substitute monarch. Many Tibetans are encouraged (via financial incentives) to become more sedentary, with food instead being supplied from nearby Sichuan (thereby reducing overreliance in inefficient herding).
    • Port of Nangang: The Emperor decides send more emissaries to the Angu peoples and peripheral tribes in Haegajang in-order to enrich the knowledge of their culture, while sends more colonists to cement the colony of Nangang from any tribal intrusions. Mixed-racial children continue to be orphaned and sent to the Angu.
    • Japanese Diplomacy: The Emperor of Japan reassures Qianlong that nothing shady is going on. He tells Qianlong about a dream he had in which the powers of the west invaded Japan and Jin which made him extremely worried. He warns the Emperor about not keeping up with the times technologically and culturally.
  • Papal States: Pope Michael abdicates the Papacy, and the new conclave begins [VOTING NATIONS PLEASE VOTE]. The Cardinal Vicar General takes over the civil administration of the States, along with his good friend and ally the Secretary of State. Both strong Neoscholastics and followers of Father Kant, they are ideologically opposed to the 'Enlightenment' of Italy, and are distressed with its growing power. The Vicar-General therefore turns a blind eye to the Legatine Raids, and more raids into Italian and Italian-occupied lands continue. Meanwhile the army is built up at home. Missions conitnue. The Immaculata mission/hospitals in the fractured Zulu lands gain converts [Mods I'm just gonna do it since no one seems to object].
  • Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot: The king has become even sicker, so sick that most of his work can't be done by him anymore. The National Congress gains because this the right for setting import and export laws and the right to modernise the army equipment,The king does keep his minor religious rights and the ability to control the army during war. The priests in our country also begin to ask the papacy to give them the right to set up a bisdom to represent the Mzerkan Catholicism and their culture(papal response).
  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies and adapt more plants to the Swahili climate. The army continues convincing contracted servants. We continue colonial expansion in Northern Somalia, in the South and in the Malindi and Mombassa area. Colonisation steadily increase as medicine and weaponry becomes more widespread. Technological advances speed up as a result of the cultural and technological exchanges in the embassies. In Swahili, the rise of the urban economy has begun to produce a manufacturing middle class, in contrast to the previous social strata of landlords and merchants. A scholar in the madrassah of Zanzibar, Ba'isa develops a new theory of probability from insurance and shipwreck calculations in the port of Zanzibar. With the turmoil in Zulu, we contact some pro Swahili factions in Zulu and offer military and economic support. (Mod pls clarify the Zulu situation, such as the factions)
    • Lakshadweep: The island of Lakshadweep continues development.
    • Sefuwa: The colony of Sefuwa begins the construction of a port.
    • Huriya:  The port in Inhassoro continues to be built.
    • Rowzi: Mosques are constructed to help spread Islam. The Danangombe-Sofala Road finishes construction, improving Swahili control over Rowzi.
    • Scandinavian Dip: They offer Trade relations and a Defensive Pact to the Swahili Sultanate to protect against the Zulu
  • France: France doesn't actually, technically speaking, offer peace to Burgundy. We do, however, offer to end hostilities with England status quo anti bellum. However, to keep the English in check, 30,000 troops are stationed near Le Harv to prevent any advances. In order to further defend ourselves and our interests, 5,000 professional troops are garrisoned in Turin in Savoy, and 5,000 more are sent to assist Augsburg. Furthermore, 150,000 troops launch a counter attack into the relatively undefended Burgundy. Meanwhile, in the south, 200,000 troops launch an assault on the Italian force in Provence. Furthermore, we use 50 ships to cut off Savoy and Provence from the ocean, thus cutting off the Italian force in the area from any potential aid. Lastly, 100,000 troops are kept on guard in Northern France, ready to counter any Burgundian advances from Calais.
    • The Sicily revolt is already over, so at the very least that should be removed. Also how can you refuse to recognize Savoy (and others)'s independence when the mod event states that France already recognized their independence and signed a treaty with them. Algorithm wise France was already defeated and is currently using 500,000 soldiers (around France's max) in the algorithms, so how do you have an additional 300,000 on top of that to then invade Burgundy and Savoy while also defending Paris and what not. 800,000 troops is well over France's max. Also presumably Burgundy and England already were offered a treaty by France, as per the mod event.
      • Sorry about the Sicily thing, my bad. The rest is being resolved on the discord as I type. ~Fires. P.S, major turn edit coming soon.
    • Italian League Diplomacy: We offer France the deal we offered in the original Treaty of Paris; France will cede the city (one pixel) in Africa, as well as Ligura and whatever territories France still owns in Italy, ending its claims to Savoy and the other states (considering France has been decisively defeated I think this is a fair deal).
      • France Dip: Naw Fam
  • Scandinavia: The Royal Fleet commanded by the brother of Sven Hadrada, Harald is given command of the 100 ship fleet They set out from the docks of Copenhagen in early, April they are carrying 25,000 Professional Soldiers and another 50,000 Conscripts led by Sven Hadrada . In Arcadia raids are made at Burgundian New Foundland, as around 500 ships are given Letters of Marque to fight King Eric's enemies in the Seven seas. In South Africa the Royal Army attempts to convince the Zulu to attack the Burgundian colonies.
  • Sultanate of Cyprus: Sultan Saif is very happy with the renovations of his palace. His palace rapidly become a place of arts and culture on the island, were all artists are taken to work for Saif. He also invest greatly to buy local and foreign documents to fill the Great Library of Nicosia, buying basically any document of importance he can find. He also began to give some more power to his conservative friends in the government, who are beginning to advice him to put back in place the Islamic laws he put away when he became Sultan. The popularity of Saif continue to fall.
  • Jaffarid Sultanate: Acceptance of all religions and cultures continues to prove good effects, especially due to the next generation of youthful citizens accepting it more and more. Secretive documents found in Mu'tamid al-Satter's house the day he was pronounced dead are to be collected into a large book. Titled Rats And Owls (قشفس شىي خصمس), the book's primary focus has been noted by Sultan Muhammad as being based around philosophy relating to feudalism and republicanism. Captain Arabia II is reported to have died, bringing about an era of biographies based around him and the rest of the Avengers.
  • Ququququ: The Koito reform continues and as the Ququququ nation is finally stable enough, the outlying tribes are contacted in order to induce them into the Union. (basically, slow map expansion, approved by Feud). The Japanese contact continues, and Ququququ continue adopting children born of interracial relations in the Jin port, in order to avoid the infanticide. With a solidified rule the Ququququ are now a most formidable force in the region, with infrastructural advancement putting them on a higher level than any other tribes, as well as their linguistic unity. Moreover, the Ququququ slowly organize their military and begin creating better weapons compared to their non-organized neighbours, using metals such as iron, with guidance of the Nangang emissaries.
  • Augsburg: With the presumption France is with us 1000 troups invade Nancy.
    • France was invaded so you switch nations from France to Augsburg, only to randomly invade to help France? Seems unfair/metagaming.
  • Hawaii: The nation continues to modernize and upgrade infrastructure within the nation. Sandalwood production increases as the commodity continues to be sold in Japan/China as a very popular product. The king continues to not favor Christianity, although since the breaking of the kapu hasn't done anything in particular to stop its spread. A royal yacht is purchases from Laurentia, which the king often sails around the islands. Later in the year the king travels to Peru and meets with the governor there, exchanging gifts. Settlement of the Marshall Islands and other islands in the south continue.

After training for some time, at the end of the war France finalizes their professional grenadiers

A Buddhist missionary travels an intrepid journey from Korea to Hawaii.

I may be jumping the gun, but it seems like a landslide victory for the Latin Patriarch at the Conclave. Habe a Papi (or however that goes)!

Habemus papam. -s

Mzerkan priests start to discover evidence from Iberian travelers that the Jewish people, long since thrown in diaspora, shares many similarties to their original culture. These priests see this as a sign from God that Mzerka was destined to be a new age of the Jewish people and Christianity, the seed of Abraham, and the King of Mzerka as the new David. 

  • Pueblo Confederacy: Smallpox sweeps across the Pueblo Nations as well as the bordering tribes of the Navajo, Apache, Ute and Comanche. The population drops from 100,000 to 90,000. We begin the modernization of our army by adding riflemen to our ranks. Our northern Pueblos have all developed mines in the Rocky Mountains. We request a trade agreement with the English colonies.
  • Japan: We begin opening various state-sponsored western style universities to teach the next generation of Japanese. The Shogun also introduces various european languages into schools such as Portuguese, Russian, English, Dutch, and French. The Shogun also begins wearing a western style uniform with epaulettes. This is generally seen as quite unorthodox by the Emperor and others but it slowly becomes accepted as the Shogun's signature outfit. Few other people wear western clothing at the moment, however. Hiroheto Shirashima, Bishop of Edo, announces to the Papal Nuncio his plans on becoming a possible Patriarch of Japan (Papal Response). Christianity spreads among the upper class and a special form of Christianity begins to form in Edo which combines Orthodox Christianity from Russia, Shinto, Confucianism, and Catholicism. In Hokkaido, a small Russian speaking population is formed due to trade with the Russian Pacific Company. We send out more ships and land in Aleutia and Tondo. We agree to respect previously made trade and colonial agreements as we set out to find new land. We send an envoy to Iberia about making a treaty to end conflict in Sulawesi (Iberian Response). A small half Quququ-half Japanese population emerges in the ports of the Ququququ as Japan continues to trade with them.
  • This is going to fast, minor Christianity (not sponosred by the shogun etc.) will be allowed but another implausibility like this will result in a strike. 
    • The Catholic Mission in Japan has been going on for 200+ years as Callum stated-Squid
    • Sulawesi: Marrying between Sulawesi natives and Japanese continues as a bi-racial class forms the colonial governorship of the north of the island.
    • New Hokkaido: We continue building the settlement as Christian missionary work is done. We use the island (New Britain) to better trade with the Ququququ.
    • Formosa: We build churches in Formosa as well as a university. Many people are using the Japanese language.
    • Papal Diplomacy: The Papal Nuncio is unsure what exactly the Bishop of Edo is requesting. If he is requesting primacy over the other Japanese bishops, the Nuncio will write to the Pope to determine the matter. [Also OOC: Just remember the Catholic mission in Japan has been going on for 200+ years, no need to make Christianity seem new to Japan ATL]
      • Bishop of Edo:: He is requesting primacy over other Japanese Bishops as well as perhaps the ability to vote in the Papal Conclave.
  • Russia: Tuvov is expanded eastwards along the coast to Novoarchangelsk and up the Susitna River. Novoruthenia expanded up the Petrov River. Musicians find the tuning of a six-string guitar at E-A-D-G-B-E, other more soulful musicians find tuning at D-G-D-G-B-D. A man named Stiven Vinvud uses his piano skills, teamed up expert guitarist Dzosef Nikanov and create a masterpiece of instruments called "Boom Boom." For the first time the six-string guitar shines. Nikanov's guitar style with the E-A-B pattern of the piano spawns a new genre called "Blyuz." The first Russian Orthodox Priests begin to travel to mainland Japan on board trading ships. One priest remarks at a shipment of guns for market sale, calling it the "Arsenal of Orthodoxy."
  • Salish Nation: Smallpox spreads to our nation, with about 3/4ths of our people dieing. There is turmoil. The remaining population blames it on the Russians, expelling all Russian traders and barring any trade with Europeans, exept for the missionaries, who are considered to be members of our nation by many. Mass conversion takes place, and almost the entire remaining population now follows Orthodoxy. We ask our allies, the Mzerka, for guns, to create a new Salish military of smoke and thunder. To account for the loss in population, it seems, is Farming, as the now-booming industry has begun to counteract the losses by the plague. Many people, devastated by the losses, have moved to a new settlement in the south (OTL Tacoma) (Name pending).
    • Mzerkan Diplomacy: Our Congress does want to help the Salish. If they allow priests to come to the country. They shall also adopt a Mzerkan styled government. For these changes our country will give guns, modern technology and better agriculture.
  • Empire of Uluru: Art and music continue to be developed in Ngarrindjeri. Literature continues to be compiled at the library of Ngarrindjer in clay tablets. Religion continues to be centralized and organized at the White Chapel. Economy continues to grow with more farmlands spread and more ships for fishing created. Kangaroo Island is more developed as well for future annexation. A central bank is established using Taro as currency (like the Incas). The wives and concubines help to raise the sons of Yannathan at Ngarrindjeri. The Northern War continues as Yannathan invades the Iwaidju people.
  • Deccan Maharajya: After having taken over the French outposts in South Asia, naval reforms are initiated. The French carnatic outpost is absorbed in the country while the French outpost near Bengal is converted to a trading post taking the name of Pirojpur. Pirojpur is fortified and 4000 line infantrymen with 1000 cavalrymen are posted there. After seeing the supremacy of line infantry over other units, the army command takes the decision to increase line infantry numbers to 50% of the total professional force around 30,000 line infantrymen. A standing army of 50,000 is maintained, with 30,000 line infantry, 10,000 cavalry, 2500 elephant corps and 7500 contemporary infantry. Another 50,000 trained men are kept in reserve. The naval reforms reestablish the navy with a Chola-style command structure and modern Indian ships such as Grabs, Gallivats and other ships. The navy is made autonomous with the Admiral of the navy being a part of the Council of Nobles. It is decided that the size of the navy will be around 1000 ships divided into two pirivus (fleets) each commanded by an admiral who will be junior members of the council of nobles and will not hold their posts for life. The Pirivus wll be subdivied into Ganams of 100 ships. The Ganams may or may not be divided into Jalathalams. A Pirivu can dispatch a semi-permanent formation of 40-50 ships for overseas deployments and expeditions. The first Pirivu is headquartered in Kollam on the West Coast while the second Pirivu is headquartered in Masulipatnam on the East coast. Two Jalathalams (each having five battle vessels, three auxiliaries and two logistics vessels) are posted in Maladweep and another Jalathalam is posted in the Hollahavai archipelago. The government awards the nationalized pearl-fisheries to the navy to establish the monopoly of the navy on pearl-fishing. Experienced pearl-fishers are trained as sabouteurs. The highly-organized customs department of Chola times is revived and is an independent establishment with the Thalai-Thirvai (Head of customs) being a part of the Council of Nobles. The Customs Force (Sungu Illaka) divided into five departments and the Customs Force maintains its own arsenal of small-fast ships. Trade and commerce thrive in the port-cities of the Maharajya with Kollam becoming the centre of arts-crafts and technolgical innovation.
    • Protectorate Affairs of Jagdalpur and Nagpur: A fourth of the 10,000 strong standing army is converted to line infantry. Mysorean rockets and siege guns are supplied to these armies. The triangular road is completed this year and boosts trade in the region. Sarais are constructed with Deccan funding and a postal system is started. Residencies are established in the courts of the Rajas of Jagdalpur and Nagpur.
  • Belkan Federation: With the integration of General Justinian into the ranks of the Belkan Army, the amassed forces all along the Border of Rum launch the largest invasion of Anatolia since the Great Crusade with nearly 450,000 troops spread along three logistical routes. The three armies are led by General Brusilov, General Justinian, and Field Marshall Yanevski who takes back seat in Field Marshall Vasilevs plan. The three pronged assault across the entire border of Rum is geared towards taking their heartland, Ankara, and the Black sea coast. With so many troops involved the testing of the logisitcal trains in the war against Ionia, Vasilev is confident that no issue will come to his campaign. (algos to come). With such a titanic force being mobilized, the Belkan people are mobilized in a way like never before. With more and more men and women being brought together to farm, fight, manufacture guns, cannons, munitions, supply ships, wagons, and horses are bred in unheard of numbers in order to supply for this campaign. horses from all over Eastern europe are purchased to make up for the shortage in horsepower. This mobilization is considered the greatest in Belkan history, surpassing the titanic efforts of the Great Crusade, and Vasilev hopes to expand the glory and Prestige of Belka as well as reclaim its powerful military legacy of its forebears. While at Home, Vozdh Sakharov convenes a meeting of his officer corps, and the National Congress calling on a new general draft rearming and retraining as well as training up a new Grand Army of Belka. With nearly 500,000 troops called force and a whole host of veterans to draw from the Belkan Professional regiments are re-established with 80,000 professional men at arms forming the core of the 500,000 strong force. This force is drilled in the school of Mass combat and its new Hussar and Curriassier corps are also deployed in this army. In order to handle the logistical constraints this army is dispatched to the Austrian border and established a series of fort-camps all along the border effectively making a large defensive line along the border as the plans for the disorganized Austria start to come about. A prominent new General, who has managed to successfully integrate the Professional regiments with the Conscripts in a fantastic fashion is given overall command of the army. Young General Ferdinand Dracultesti, a firm believer in the republic, as well as the preserved head of the Dracultesti family is given complete control of the army. His fanatic beliefs in the Belkan revolutionary movement and seeing the unity it has brought what are ostensibly his own people by right of the now defunct throne and crown are what drive him. He seeks to bring this revolution to the rest of europe, a true fanatic in his own right, outstripped all the other Revolutionaries and even claiming a powerful governmental position as the Sovietnika of War (Minister/councillor of War). The preparations for a long european war bring him to take out massive loans to prepare for the launching of a massive war. He quietly prepares sending covert scouts to learn the best routes into Germany. The people seeing the potential of enemies on all sides barring the now similar in government Russians, rally to this cause of war, hoping to overthrow the monarchists where-ever they stand, and to aid revolutionaries wherever they may arise.
    • Greek Confederation: Ionia now dissolved as Grand principality sees its former imperial vestiges thrown down as the implementation of Belkan reforms across the board do much to end the detrimental remnants of the feudal system. With low casualties from the war with Belka, many of the nobility and aristocracy see the Belkan re-establishment as a complete and utter detriment. However, the new rule of law enforced by Belkan garrisons, and the new Greek National guard sees their resistance movements practically strangled in the cradle. The new government is known as the Greek confederation which is modeled explicitly after the Belkan Federal model and in its own merit begins to remodel its military ability more along the lines of the Belkan armed forces. multiple schools of mass combat are opened and the confederation begins to conscript soldiers in preparation to support Belka. However, a hard line is drawn hoping that Belkas current invasion of Rum will see more of the ancient greek heartlands restored to the confederation and open it up to settlement by the Greeks. While this is presented, however, the Confederations leader, George Kalros signs a treaty, forever renouncing the ancient Balkan Greek homelands for the Asia-Minor gains solidifying the Confederations support into the Asia-Minor plan. With the general population mobilizing for this, the Greeks ignore this slight and are more than happy to reclaim territory at the expense of the Turks which have been a blight on the region for centuries. The Greek conscript army this year reaches nearly 50,000 and growing as men from all over reach major cities to volunteer for service and others are conscripted.
  • Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot: Lucentum keeps its growth becoming the biggest city in the country populationwise. The production and dyeing of sheepwool keeps getting cheaper and more numerous. The Mzerkan priests begin to diverge in their ideas believing that Philipe Augusthino Diltwa is the New David and that the Mzerkans are descendants of the Old lost Jewish family. So they demand representation and change in the church. Otherwise, they will stop listening to any authority of the church.(Papal response)
    • Papal OOC: Could you be more specific with what you mean? I believe you already have your own native bishop, and a decent number of the priests in Mzerka should by now be natives trained at the local seminay. Is that the sort of representation you're referring to?
    • Mzerkan Diplomacy: The still loyal Mzerkan priests want the ability to vote in the Colege of cardinals. Plus they want to implement changes to the Mzerkan church.
  • Jin dynasty: Whilst still wary of Japanese Westernization, the attention of the Qianlong Emperor is taken by increasing Russian influence in the area, which is seen as a threat to Chinese preeminence within the western Pacific. In response to increasingly poor relations, trade is restricted to Korea proper, specifically the areas east of the Amur river. Attempts to monitor the Orthodox minority in Sinsado is established. In order to provide a buffer against Russia, the conquest of Mongolia begins (sending fifty thousand soldiers), staging an incident in order to legitimize its actions. It is subjugated as a commandery, and a minor Mongolian chief is placed as the puppet leader, who in-theory (but not on-par), is equal to the General-Governor; the latter of whom is appointed by the Emperor. In response to the condescending tone of the Japanese emissaries, the Qianlong Emperor states, "the realms of China and Korea are not comparable elsewhere in affluence, through our maintenance of superior ethics and morality, we've been bestowed upon by the Heavens the most wealthiest society. Thus, we do not have the need to compare ourselves to the Western [barbarians], whom while are respectable, still nevertheless look up to the Chinese and Koreans and come to us". The statement receives a standing ovation, though some Jesuit missionaries allowed within the court are disappointed with the Emperor's condescending tone. Missionary activities are undertaken by the Holiest Procurator of the Heavenly Teachings (or otherwise known as the Eastern-rite Church) in Southeast Asia. The policy of militarization continues to be pursued, with shipyards, arsenals, and industrial facilities dedicated to producing armaments and other military-related objects being built. Basic sanitation continues to be promoted: public bathhouses, spas, latrines, and sewage systems are all built. Adequate irrigation alongside other projections such as mass distribution of pluviometres and water gauges create an increase in the productivity of agriculture. To facilitate transportation and growing merchantile acitvities, paved roads are built. Commercialization and the division of labour continues, resulting from a heightened demand for commercial goods from both the domestic and foreign market.
    • Nivkh Commandery: Tiger Pastries Inc., a subsidiary of Lady Lin Tea, continues to flourish as a business. The Nivkh Prince-Governor (which is the member of the Nivkh Ayzik branch of the House of Kim) continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively.
    • Mongolian Commandery: A faux-parliamentary system is established (with the Mongolian court being the legislature, like the Beijing imperial court). A puppet Mongolian chief becomes the "Khan", establishing the House of Khans and serves as the head of state. The head of government is the Governor-General, who is directly-appointed by the Emperor. Like the Nivkh Commandery, Mongolia becomes a part of China, albeit (in-theory) autonomous.
    • Sakha (protectorate): The Khan continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively. Siberian crab-apples become a local renowned fruit, and is particularly prized in Korea and northern China.
    • Xizang (protectorate): Lhasa, the capital, is expanded and modernized. The Tibetan clergy continues to administer the protectorate, with its leader, the Dalai Lama, being considered a vassal or substitute monarch. Many Tibetans are encouraged (via financial incentives) to become more sedentary, with food instead being supplied from nearby Sichuan (thereby reducing overreliance in inefficient herding).
    • Port of Nangang: The Emperor decides send more emissaries to the Angu peoples and peripheral tribes in Haegajang in-order to enrich the knowledge of their culture, while sends more colonists to cement the colony of Nangang from any tribal intrusions. Mixed-racial children continue to be orphaned and sent to the Angu.
  • Cologne: Returning from his duties as a Cardinal, Archbishop Ludwich apologises for his late response to the Holy Roman Emperor and understands that the situation in Austria is difficult, so he leaves the Emperor alone. Instead, he decides to speak to the HRE states in the Rhineland (Cleves-Mark, Julich, Berg, Sponheim, and Trier, I believe) and Westphalia, who have been part of the Lower Rhenish-Westphalian Circle (with Cologne as their defacto leader) for centuries, especially given the close connections between many archbishops of Cologne and the ruling nobility in each other HRE state. He is hopeful that they may come together in solidarity given the confusion, especially the common people’s fear of what is happening in Austria and how it might eventually affect the safety of the German peoples. He reaches out to all these states in the hope that they will join him to become a smaller and more manageable version of the League of Westphalia. (Mod response please) Meanwhile, the University of Cologne continues to study the documents of capitalist theory by comparing it to various social theories and mathematical theories to assess its validity. They begin to publish papers on it. Results are mixed. However, capitalism seems to be taken up by a lot of nations, so the scholars at the University endeavour to understand it further.
    • Essen: Abbess Marie returns from the Ecumenical Council – now called the Fifth Council of the Lateran – to open the first of two new coal mines. The people of Essen are delighted, and celebrate in the streets (the people of Cologne think they’re crazy for doing so) but the abbess and her canonesses try to act immediately with the resources they have. They re-organise the methods of trade through ports in Cologne and streamline the systems they already have of exporting minerals. Meanwhile, the canonesses in Tondo are informed by a local that they have been using an incorrect word to refer to the people of Tondo – instead of “Tondoese”, they should be “Tagalog”, after the ethnic majority of Tondo. Accordingly, because all the canonesses in Tondo are of local descent, they rename themselves the Tagalog Canonesses but continue to refer to themselves as “Tondoese” for a while to ease the transition. They continue to assist on the home front in Tondo, and there is still a steady stream of priests and canonesses arriving on exchange from Tondo in Burgundian Arcadia, notably in New Germany (OTL Florida). Close to New Essen, tensions are much lower, but in New Netherlands there are reports of discrimination against Tagalog Canonesses, and German Canonesses step in to try to solve the problem. This is an ongoing struggle, and the canonesses generally doubt that it could be over any time soon.
  • Papal States: The conclave comes to a decision, and the Latin Patriarch is elected Pope Innocent IX. The new pope is a strong Latin, with a penchant for Neoscholasticism. The Cardinal Vicar-General and the Secretary of State find Innocent a perfect ,atch for their political worldview. Innocent shares the pair's concerns with Italy. Having taken office, the Pope, noting how Italy has utterly disregarded the status quo on the Peninsula, declares that he considers the Treaty of Naples abrogated. Raids into Italy continue to be conducted by the local Legates. Missions continue, especially in Japan and in the lands of the Zulu.
  • Grandduchy of Oldenburg: The trading and military councils are debating over a possible colonization and city founding in southwest and western Arfrica or parts of Asia (Mod respond please), as the dockyard of Emden just finished the 50th ship of the Oldenburg Royal Fleet, named Klaas-Störtebekker. Also, the council of the common people decided, that every child in the age of seven up to 13 in Oldenburg has to go to a clerical or synagogue school for at least three times a week for learning to write, read, basic medical aid such as the knowledge of herbes, in the case of a pandemia and good manners.
  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies and adapt more plants to the Swahili climate. The army continues convincing contracted servants. We continue colonial expansion in Northern Somalia, in the South and in the Malindi and Mombassa area. Colonisation steadily increase as medicine and weaponry becomes more widespread. Technological advances speed up as a result of the cultural and technological exchanges in the embassies. With the turmoil in Zulu, we contact some pro Swahili factions in Zulu and offer military and economic support.
    • Lakshadweep: The island of Lakshadweep continues development.
    • Sefuwa: The colony of Sefuwa begins the construction of a port.
    • Huriya:  The port in Inhassoro continues to be built.
    • Rowzi: Mosques are constructed to help spread Islam. Swahili merchants begin increasing trade between the two nations.
    • Swahili Dip: We politely decline the Scandanavian offer of protection and rents to them a trade quarter on Pemba Island.
  • Sultanate of Cyprus: The death of Mu'Tamid al-Satter is mourned all around the island, as the man was a symbol of enlightenment in Cyprus. However, on advices of his conservative advisers, Saif ban the publication of al-Satter's book Rats an Owls. The ban is widely opposed by the liberal groups of the islands, including the scholars who work in the Great Library of Nicosia. Admiral Mufeed el-Galla and his allies enter in talks with the brother of Saif, Farid's second son Kamil, who is currently 31 years old and still living is Jaffarid Arabia. However, el-Galla himself become more and more arrogant, pushing the other conspirators to sell him out to get rid of him. By the end of the year, el-Galla is discovered and arrested by the government, although his plot and his co-conspirators aren't found out. El-Galla is stripped of his admiralty and executed on December the 8th.
  • Jaffarid Sultanate: Acceptance of all religions and cultures continues to prove good effects, especially due to the next generation of youthful citizens accepting it more and more. Short stories based around the Avengers begin to be published. The Second Arab-Ethiopian War, although decades later, has re-brought back citizens to show distaste towards the nations of Iran and Ethiopia. People begin to look at the Third Arab-Ethiopian War as a failure more than a victory.
  • French Peru: Hugo Martin, a Peruvian born nobleman, becomes the Viceroy of Peru. Under his reign, he oversees the building of infrastructure in Peru as well as a Royal Peruvian Army. A French Envoy is sent to the Mapuche asking to engage in trade (Mod Response). The caste system in French Peru becomes more stratified, with pure Frenchmen at the top, Mesquites(half French, half native American) in the middle, and Native American people and slaves/indentured servants at the bottom. A project is set about to unite the two areas of French Peru(one in the east and one in the west). Islam slowly spreads in French Peru from the former Maghrebi colony of Al Maqadas. Hugo Martin watches the european war closely and readies troops at the borders France has with other European colonies.
  • France: After the conclusion of the war over Savoy, we agree to cede Le Harve to England and Calais to Burgundy. Meanwhile, after the successful defense of Savoy from the Italian League, we offer to keep 5,000 French troops Garrisoned in Turin to prevent potential Italian aggression. Unfortunately, shortly after the war is resolved, our king dies, leaving his son Phillip to take the crown. Wanting to maintain French influence across Europe, Phillip asks that Austria re-affirm their alliance with France. To further secure our borders, we also ask the Papal States to disallow any Italian armies from crossing their land, promising them support if they try to. Our army is currently half a million professional troops strong, with a core force of 200,000 Grenadiers. While many of these troops are currently inactive, around 60,000 are on the Burgundian border, constructing a series of major forts t prevent incursion into France. Another contingent of 40,000 troops, supplemented with 40 ships, are based in Sardinia as a counterweight to any Italian threat.
    • Augsburg Dip: We offer Lorraine in Vassalage to France ruled in a personal union with the Augsburg monarch.
    • French Dip: Yes.
  • Ququququ: The Koito reform continues and as the Ququququ nation is finally stable enough, the outlying tribes are contacted in order to induce them into the Union. (basically, slow map expansion, approved by Feud). The Japanese contact continues, and Ququququ continue adopting children born of interracial relations in the Jin port, in order to avoid the infanticide. With a solidified rule the Ququququ are now a most formidable force in the region, with infrastructural advancement putting them on a higher level than any other tribes, as well as their linguistic unity. Moreover, the Ququququ slowly organize their military and begin creating better weapons compared to their non-organized neighbours, using metals such as iron, with guidance of the Nangang emissaries. As the nation is much more stable right now, the Ququququ begin outreaching to more tribes, preparing their next step of expansion as the Council notices the Japanese and Jin superiority compared to Ququququ, so they understand that they too must expand in order to develop.

Another day another list of events SupremeSensualSamrāṭSky 22:00, August 16, 2017 (UTC)

With the spread of Christianity throughout large portions of the world, numerous folk elements are incorporated in smaller local areas, causing a stir among the clergy, wondering if Christianity needs to be more united to protect it from blasphemy.

The Yolngu peoples unite among themselves, aided by the advancements of Makassan trepangers. By the end of the year they solidify their rule in their native territory and seek to expand further.

Neocynicism makes a comeback in Jin dynasty lands! Barrel-living, public indecency practicing, rock-throwing hermits appear throughout the nation wrecking havoc creating awkward situation where parents tell their children to look away.

France signs a separate agreement at Paris with the Italian League, gurenteeing the independence of the Italian States and allowing some territory to be given as vassals to the government in Ravenna. 

Austria conscripts as many forces as possible to confront the Belkan threat, meeting their armies directly, while using its standing forces to coordinate the attack. A meeting of nobles is held in Vienna to consider if this calls for imperial action. Propoganda is spread by printing press, depicting the Belkans as brute beasts since their treatment of the Mohammadans. 


  • French Peru and River Plate: A road is successfully built between the River Plate and Peru, officially uniting them. Expansion into OTL Uruguay begins as people are given incentives to settle new land. We expand along the coast and connect the east coasts of Peru and River Plate as well. Hugo Martin begins implementing reforms to end corruption in the shadier parts of the colony. Hugo meets with the viceroy of River Plate and talks about uniting the two now that they physically border each other. General Cornelio Savvadefq of the Southern Peruvian Army begins to grow unhappy with French Governance of the region. Another man named Francis Bolivique, a Mesquite Surveyor for the Peruvian Navy, also grows unhappy with the way Mesquites are treated under the Peruvian caste system. The Mesquite middle class has now developed a solidified identity and culture (as well as a new dialect of French) different than the mainland. A new religion, a combination of Islamic practices from people in Al Maqadas, French Catholic practices, and Amerindian Pagan practices, known as Santeria forms among the lower classes. It involves witchcraft and a variety of other pagan practices. The Viceroys of River and Plate and Peru go to the King of France, asking for unity between their two viceroyalties now that they physically border each other (French Response). With Peru now connected to River Plate, French and Mesquite immigrants pour into Peru and mix with native Peruvian populations. At this point 60% of River Plate is Mesquite, 20% is French, and 20% is other (German, Native, etc.). 70% of Peru is Native, 20% is Mesquite, and 10% is French.
  • Jaffarid Sultanate: Acceptance of all religions and cultures continues to prove good effects, especially due to the next generation of youthful citizens accepting it more and more. Short stories based around the Avengers begin to be published. Rats and Owls is released, causing a stir in the community following it's release. Muhammad Ahmed al-Jaffar announces he will be resigning next year in favor of a new successor, this is of course following him becoming very sick.
  • Italian League: We sign the Treaty of Paris with France, ending the war with France and the other states of Italy. The profressional troops in newly vassalized Ligura and Sardinia are ordered to stay in order to ensure the peace, as well as protect against any further hostility. Specifically, strategic locations or major cities such as Piombino, Genoa, Savona, Sassari, Olbia, and Cagliari are to be heavily fortified, with new defenses either being constructed or replacing existing ones. With the war over with France an army is sent to Maghreb to formally end the hostile Siege of Tunis, and drive them back, with a blockade being put in place. Hostilities with the Papal States continues, with local leaders fighting back and even taking the raiding to the Papal States' territory in retaliation. A portion of the army remains in our territory to formally push out the hostile invaders. The new consuls following the elections of 1764 continue to institute republican reforms, with the vote being expanded to the veterans of the war. The new democratically elected leaders send a proposal to the new pope, pointing out that he has done more to disrupt the balance of power in the region by condoning violent raiding and pillaging across his own Italian peninsula, and asks to diplomatically end the violence. A proposal is sent demanding that the Papal States end all raiding, punish the ringleaders of the criminal practice, recognize the League's gains from the Treaty of Paris, including the taking of Piombino by Ligura, and compensate the League for the damage it caused, or face a full reprisal. New ships are ordered across the nation, and in Sicily, to replace the losses from the war, and new ships-of-the-line are constructed. Additionally, with experience from the previous war grapeshot begins to be developed by the nation's military. We send proposals for a defensive pact to both Corsica and Savoy, the two independent states created after the war (mod response).
    • I'd say you don't have enough direct control in those areas to fortify them heavily
    • French Diplomacy: Angered by Italian aggression against the Pope, Phillip offers to defend the Papal States in any way necessary or desired.
    • Papal Diplomacy: The Pope cannot accept the demands of Italy's ultimatum. The Italian occupation of Piombino, a Papal vassal, is declared an insult not only to His Holiness, but to the Ecumenical Council of Lateran V. With Italian forces pushing into Papal lands, the Pope breaks off diplomatic ties with the Italians, mobilises the army, and calls on France to help protect the Lands of the Church from the Italians.
    • Corsica and Savoy hesitates making such a deal with people who invaded them.
    • French secret Dip (to Papal States): 50,000 of Phillip's Grenadiers and 50,000 other troops are sent to counter attack the Italians to defend the papacy. In addition, should the pope approve, troops will be sent to Oran and Collins to seize them.
      • Counter attack what? There wasn't even an attack to counteract. Also professional troops are limited to 80,000 max.
  • Kingdom of Burgundy: Guyana expands 50 px inland. New Germany expands 50 px into OTL Mississippi. Patagonië expands 50 px up the coast. New Netherlands continues to settle the newly acquired land from the Iroquois, encompassing much of OTL upstate New York. Ramaaker, at the site of OTL Rochester, New York, is the largest settlement. With the signing of the Treaty of Paris, Burgundy celebrates the victory, marking the occasion with a 5000-man detachment making a parade through Brussels. The reincorporation of the reconquered land is begun, but as the populations are largely Dutch reincorporation is so for proceeding smoothly. After months of debate, the States-General pass the Burgundian Bill of Rights, base on Enlightenment philosophy. It establishes the right of every citizen to "life, liberty, and property", freedom of speech, right to a trial by jury, etc. King Frederik signs it, making it official. Also signed into law is the Mandatory Enlistment Act, declaring that in an event deemed a "national emergency" every able bodied unmarried male aged 18-25 may be called upon to serve. This is inspired by recent events involving the Italian League and Belka, where massed assaults can overwhelm even the most disciplined of armies.
  • Empire of Uluru: Art, music and literature continue to improve and spread across the nation. By now, all the feudal lords in the central and western parts of the continent have adopted the style and culture exemplified in Ngarrindjeri. Religion continues to be reformed and improved by the Dreamspeakers of the White Chapel. As the population continues to increase dramatically by the expansion of agriculture, the Dreamspeakers creates a new class of the religious elite, known as the Moornoon. Moornoon are placed in positions to oversee communities, primarily in Ngarridjeri and Uluru. Yannathan's five wives continue to raise his many children. After subjugating many people in the north, Yannathan takes a break to rest back in Ngarrindjeri. However, soon after a runner arrives from the north, reporting on the existence of another kingdom known as Yolngu. Yannathan is very puzzled by this, and calls together a general council of nobles and advisers to help decide how to approach them. It seems hard to imagine another nation that is not Anangu, as throughout time there has only ever been one nation in history, and that is Anangu. 
  • Papal States: The Italian ultimatum is received in Rome amidst heightened anti-Italian feelings, and is roundly and publically rejected by the populace, particularly the Neoscholastic elites. In other news, the Vicar General and Secretary of State present the Pope with their plans for a Kant-inspired Assembly to assist with the secular governance of the states. Innocent IX, a keen Neoscholastic and follower of Father Kant's philosophy, is open to the proposal. Although the plan for a National Assembly is postponed until after the resolution of the current crisis, some of the Legates establish State Assemblies, made up of representatives of the clergy, nobility, peasantry, guilds, and towns. In other news, the Prefect of the Congregation for Missions, having received the requests of the missionary clergy, meets with the Pope and the Prefect of the Holy Inquisition. The effect of the meeting is that the Inquisition will send roaming courts to the mission territories to note the ways that local elements are being incorporated into the Faith, and then judgments be made on whether they can be reconciled with orthodoxy, keeping in mind the norms established by Pope Cornelius II in his 1682 encyclical Plane Compertum, on Asian rites and 'inculturation'. The roaming courts will include experts on the local cultures and languages. Missions continue.
  • Belkan Federation: With much of the hinterlands secured the Belkan armies target the Cities of Eskeshier, Sinop, and Ankara in a massive assault. The relatively low numbered Feudal armies of Rum prove to be absolutely no match as breaches into all cities leads to their absolute collapse. This can be heavily attributed to Rums total lack of manpower which with only 35,000 men to their name the Belkan armies practically overrun the Sultanate of Rum within a year of beginning the Campaign. With no ability to further resist (the manpower of Rum is nonexistent at this point) The Belkan generals force the handing over of much territory pushing the borders back east past Ankara effectively bringing the entire western half of Anatolia under Greco-Belkan control. The Generals in a way to more or less pay for the conquest loot the now occupied parts of Rum and begin inflicting massive reprisals on the Turks living within their borders. Non-condoned incidents of mass rape occur and heavily sponsored instances of looting and killings occur. The city of Sinop has its population practically leveled as the masssive Belkan army requisitions food, supplies and other consumables as well as valuables from the city. Many of the Turkish civilians are lined up and shot by firing squads. This is repeted across the newly occupied territories and within a few months almost 400,000 people are killed between directed killing, looting, and a practically forced famine due to the requisitions of the Belkan Army. The 450,000 troops brought into rum are almost immediately removed and replaced with garrisons from the Greek Confederation as the army moves from Rum all the way back to the Austrian border. The Logistical systems are strained but with tons of supplies forced out of Rum, as well as the motherland producing much more the supply is handled. Sakharov finally signs off on the invasion of Austria and once again launches a multiple pronged plan to invade Austria The Belkan first army is to slam through the Austrian Border opening a pathway to siege Vienna and the second Army is to push past the First into Bavaria and secure the main cities such as Munich. The opening moves are supported by new movements of massed artillery, and Heavy Curiassiers and Hussars are used in the campaign bringing nearly 500,000 men to bear across the whole border slamming into roughly 100,000 Austrian troops all along the Border. In order to supply such a massive campaign the lessons learned from the faults and successes of the Belkan wars in former Ionia and Western Rum are applied and thousands of supply wagons are used to cart supplies through the thoroughly built up Belkan highway system into their new Foreward Fortresses, a newly coined term to apply to the first beachhead(s) into an enemy territory. The follow up army of nearly 450,000 troops remains stationed throughout croatia and slovenia to prevent logistical overstretch and use the camps around the cities to keep the men housed. The second army under Vasilev is prepared to march into Austria at a moments notice. (algos coming). In order to effectively keep manpower stocked every many between the ages of 16 and 35 is given some sort of military training. However not perfect, it does allow for effective replenishment of the reserves which stand strikingly large. Generals Justinian, Brusilov and Petar all take command of their separate corps in order to effectively combat the Austrians. Within two major battles along the Austrian border, the Austrians are decisively defeated and forced to abandon their southern region to the Advancing Belkan forces. The plan is immediately carried out and the 1st Belkan Field Army (multiple Armies grouped together) races towards Vienna chasing the Austrian troops there. The Second Field Army is immediately raised and sent north with the intent on Capturing Bavaria. While some minor atrocities occur it is to be expected of the war and the only over issue of oppression is the army taking food and supplies from the surrounding land to compensate for losses in supplies with specialized Foraging regiments being used to requisition or find supplies to help ease the burden of supplying the giant army. The Outright attempt here is to overrun the Austrians in less than a Year and Vienna, and Munich are put under harsh siege with massive Artillery Bombardments of the cities and their Forts beginning.
  • Jin dynasty: Neocynics are persecuted, with repeat violators being circumcised to avoid public acts of indecency occurring. A controversial edict is established banning the usage of barrel-shaped vessels, as it has now become associated with neocynicism. Vessels are now all box-shaped. Missionary activities are undertaken by the Holiest Procurator of the Heavenly Teachings (or otherwise known as the Eastern-rite Church) in Southeast Asia. The policy of militarization continues to be pursued, with shipyards, arsenals, and industrial facilities dedicated to producing armaments and other military-related objects being built. Basic sanitation continues to be promoted: public bathhouses, spas, latrines, and sewage systems are all built. Adequate irrigation alongside other projections such as mass distribution of pluviometres and water gauges create an increase in the productivity of agriculture. To facilitate transportation and growing merchantile acitvities, paved roads are built. Commercialization and the division of labour continues, resulting from a heightened demand for commercial goods from both the domestic and foreign market.
    • Nivkh Commandery: Tiger Pastries Inc., a subsidiary of Lady Lin Tea, continues to flourish as a business. The Nivkh Prince-Governor (which is the member of the Nivkh Ayzik branch of the House of Kim) continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively.
    • Sakha (protectorate): The Khan continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively. Siberian crab-apples become a local renowned fruit, and is particularly prized in Korea and northern China.
    • Xizang (protectorate): Lhasa, the capital, is expanded and modernized. The Tibetan clergy continues to administer the protectorate, with its leader, the Dalai Lama, being considered a vassal or substitute monarch. Many Tibetans are encouraged (via financial incentives) to become more sedentary, with food instead being supplied from nearby Sichuan (thereby reducing overreliance in inefficient herding).
    • Port of Nangang: The Emperor decides send more emissaries to the Angu peoples and peripheral tribes in Haegajang in-order to enrich the knowledge of their culture, while sends more colonists to cement the colony of Nangang from any tribal intrusions. Mixed-racial children continue to be orphaned and sent to the Angu.
    • Mongolia Commandery: Northern Mongolia is released as a vassal. Parts of Northern Mongolia is given to Sakha, however.
    • North Mongolia: A central government distinct from the Mongolia Commandery is established.
  • Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot: The National Congress of Mzerka and Wiyot begins to gain even more support getting 30% support in the citties and 20 % support in villages. These supporters are in general quite rich or powerful. Many Mzerkan priests Begin to think that the Sinkyone and all other Mzerkan ethnic groops were descendants from the Lost Jewish tribe and that they should build up a new Jerusalem in Lucentum. These priests begin to cut the ties with the Vatican. They reintroduce old Jewish laws and rituals of the Jews. Most of the people call it Mzerojudaism.
  • Malaya: Expansion into Borneo is going smoothly along the coastline, but some snags have been hit in the denser rainforests in the center. Ports are upgraded along the Straits, and infrastructure is improved throughout the nation.
  • Ququququ: The Koito reform continues and as the Ququququ nation is finally stable enough, the outlying tribes are contacted in order to induce them into the Union. (Basically, slow map expansion, approved by Feud). The Japanese contact continues, and Ququququ continue adopting children born of interracial relations in the Jin port, in order to avoid the infanticide. With a solidified rule the Ququququ are now a most formidable force in the region, with infrastructural advancement putting them on a higher level than any other tribes, as well as their linguistic unity. Moreover, the Ququququ slowly organize their military and begin creating better weapons compared to their non-organized neighbours, using metals such as iron, with guidance of the Nangang emissaries. As the nation is much more stable right now, the Ququququ begin outreaching to more tribes, preparing their next step of expansion as the Council notices the Japanese and Jin superiority compared to Ququququ, so they understand that they too must expand in order to develop.
  • Russia: Novoruthenia is expanded 10 px up the Petrov River. Tuvov is expanded up the Susitna River and along the coast. Trade in China and Japan continues. White Rice starts to get growth in the southern regions near the Caucasus. Colonial String Baroque starts to gain influences from Bluyz with a remade version of the song "White River". Vozdh Savinkov begins to ponder if Poland should be kept around any longer, he begins to fear another 1673. And places 200,000 troops in Lithuania and White Ruthenia, with 60,000 professional in reserve at Kiev.

  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies and adapt more plants to the Swahili climate. The army continues convincing contracted servants. We continue colonial expansion in Northern Somalia, in the South and in the Malindi and Mombassa area. Colonisation steadily increase as medicine and weaponry becomes more widespread. Technological advances speed up as a result of the cultural and technological exchanges in the embassies. The first public zoo in the world is built in the Royal Botanical Garden outside of Dars As Saleem, including plants and animals from the Middle East, Europe, the New World and the interior of Africa. With the turmoil in Zulu, we send some pro Swahili factions military and economic support.
    • Lakshadweep: The island of Lakshadweep continues development.
    • Sefuwa: The colony of Sefuwa begins the construction of a port.
    • Huriya:  The port in Inhassoro continues to be built.
    • Rowzi: Mosques are constructed to help spread Islam. Swahili merchants begin increasing trade between the two nations.
  • Sultanate of Cyprus: After ten years of reign, Saif is widely unpopular among his population. He was brought because the people thought he was a liberal ruler who would make their lives better. Instead, he turned out to be almost as conservative as the previous regime, keeping most of the harsh religious laws in place. Plus, his fixation with arts and construction made him cut too much of the budget, which angered many of his allies. On January the 24th, the palace guard and the liberal members of the court lead a coup in the palace, overthrowing Saif and arresting all his conservative allies. Kamil, the brother of Saif, is then invited to take the throne, which he accept, with his coronation on the 12th of February. Among the prisoners, only Saif is not executed, as Sultan Kamil don't want to commit fratricide. The population is mainly passive toward the change of regime. Although Saif was extremely unpopular, the populace is now wary of a new “enlightened Sultan” who is there to “make things better”. Sultan Kamil quickly apply himself to his task rapidly. He officially cancel all the Islamic laws put in place during Hasim's reign. He also restore Mufeed el-Galla to his rank of admiral to restore the honor of the dead man.
  • Cologne: Archbishop Ludwich is startled by the news that the Belkans are attacking Austria, but nonetheless not very surprised. It seems that this has been coming for quite a long time, given the lack of coherency in the HRE. Accordingly, he reiterates his 1764 call for the Rhineland states to join Cologne in a league for safety (Mod response, please). The Archbishop hears of the meeting of nobles in Vienna and personally attends the emergency summit, offering to assist in uniting potential forces as the Archbishop-Patriarch of the Imperial Synod. Meanwhile, the University of Cologne continues to look into neoscholasticism, capitalism, and more, to understand them further.
    • Essen: Adelphinian Canonesses in both Tondo and New Germany are concerned about the push from the clergy to delegitimise local elements of Christian teachings in non-Western locations. Thus, when the Inquisition comes around, they actively explain the orthodoxy of their teachings and how they have reconciled Catholicism with local elements – to much success, they add. As a result of this system, Catholicism has been received much more easily amongst the Tagalog peoples and Seminole peoples, among others. The Canonesses believe that, with kindness and an open mind, much more can be achieved. They give the Inquisition several tokens of this unity to take back to Rome: a cross on a chain, made of corn and shells by a young Seminole girl who aspires to become a canoness; and a painting from Tondo with both the Good Shepherd and the Tigmamanukan (omen bird) depicted in harmony. There is still some discrimination in New Germany against Tagalog canonesses, but it is a work in progress. Meanwhile, the mines in Essen are almost complete and the streamlined trade begins to pay off.
    • Westphalia, Berg, and Trier eagarly accpet. Cleves-Mark and Sponheim are indifferent but consider joining in the future. Julich refuses -Nate
  • United Kingdom of Great Britain: England has 6.9 million people and inside of that London has a population of 0.8 million, Wales has 0.6 million, Ireland has 30 million people and Scotland 1.1 million. The British army has 3000 in Portsmouth, 3000 in Aldershot, 2000 in Scotland, 3000 in Ireland while 2000 in Arcadia, 2000 in Casablanca, 1000 in English Maiam, 1000 in Haiti as well as 500 in St George, St Helena, New Canterbury and Bay of Kost. 10,000 militia are called up and sent to defend and fortify Plymouth, Torquay, Poole and Cowes. The fleet is divided with 150 ships stationed in Portsmouth, 150 ships stationed in Bristol and 50 in New London. The British East Indian company continues to operate well with trade and running an army. The inheritance tax continues to see a slow build up of land. Cavalry innovations such as Cuirassier and Hussars are completed. In Britain itself the continuing new trend of commercialisation and industrialisation continues. The sale of textiles such as silk and cotton continues to rise amongst the middle class, the production of iron rises for machine tools, farming implements and factories which requires larger amounts of coal leading to an increase in coal mining. The spinning Jenny is invent by James Hargreaves while James Watt develops a model steam engine with a separate condenser. These two inventions will be important. The canal and road system continues to be maintained by the Crown while the Crown collects income taxes to pay for this system. Le Harve is returned to the French since it's worthless to the Crown. but all the other colonies gained are taken over by the British and governed more or less the same way allowing a good supply of cash.
    • British Arcadia:  In addition local militia forces do exist but they aren't standing and are spread out although they are armed. Seeing Burgundy invade and aware the settlers are unhappy the British army and colonial militias launch a push into Iroquois lands. A large group of several thousand settlers push 50 px into OTL Pennsylvania from the south establishing farms and stuff as they go with 3000 professional British troops and 2000 militia. If the Iroquois counterattack then we defend the advancing settlers. The militia is commanded by Alexander Washington a landowner and surveyor. There is a militia of 21,000 citizens who are while nonprofessional do have weapons and supplies. The colonies are at 2.3 million people. The Royal Navy continue patrols in the Atlantic. The British government make an effort to move more volunteers from Africa including its new holdings in Morocco and from India.

Famine hits western and central Anatolia.

Yonglu expand through Top End peninsula.

Seeing their earlier defeat, Vienna is refortified as the strongest defenses it's seen since the days of the Ottoman-Luxembourg Wars. The royal family, nobility, and court apparels of Austria flees the capital in the dead of night to Regensburg, where he calls an Imperial Diet to consider how to deal with the Belkans. Ambassadors are sent to Poland to attempt an alliance. Munich is also defended, and the commander there Heinriech von Nuissence continues to spread the Anti-Belkan propoganda in Bavaria. 

The local governments of Lower Arcadia (Central America) creates an unnofficial organization known as the "Congress of the Hundred" to manage their affairs outside of the Iberian monarchy. This has representatives from both Hispanic and Maiam ethnicities, with a plethora of different political and social opinions.

In Scandinavia, Oskar Haroldson proclaims that 100 years later, the teachings and predictions of Hiedler of old are coming true, citing the election of a Belkan Pope years ago, chaos and war in southern Europe, and now the Belkan wars of aggression in southern Germany. Haroldson proclaims Scandinavia must return to proper Catholicism and abandon the falsehoods of Kappelism.

The Maghreb colony in the Americas, the Tajammad Emirate, collapses due to infighting after being cut off from the mainland losing a major supply shipment in a storm. Pirates come through and destroy the rest of the colony and kill or enslave any survivors.

  • Riviere D’argent: More Mesquites continue migrating to Peru as well as marrying into local Quechua populations. Santeria becomes more popular on the larger cities, especially the Rivier De Argent Capital of New Marseille (Rio De Janeiro). Development is made in Peru to improve sanitation. Livestock is also brought in to build agriculture there. This accidentally causes a plague to break out in Cusco which mainly affects native populations. Francis Bolivique travels to Peru and meets with several Incan republicans as well as meeting with Cornelio Savadefq, a high ranking native general for the French governance in Peru. Francis Bolivique begins writing a series of pamphlets in Laurentian French and Quechua talking about self governance and republicanism. More infrastructure and hospitals are built in Peru to combat the plague. Schools are also built which teach in French. Austrian refugees from the war with Belkas flee to Rivier D'argent and mix with the local populations.
  • Italian League: Elections take place and this years' consuls are sworn in. The military continues to be expanded and stationed across our territory, as well as in our vassal states to ensure their protection. With the war over with Maghreb those veteran soldiers return to the Italian Peninsula and are stationed in our territory. We again propose a peaceful resolution to issues with the Papal States akin to white peace. No declaration of war continues to be issued, because we do not have any issue with the Papal States. We also request to formalize a defensive pact with Iberia, in addition to our alliances with Belka, Burgundy, and Britain. (More to come)
    • Iberian Diplomacy: Iberia refuses, opting to remain neutral in Mediterranean affairs, especially after considering the Italian League's unlawful seizure of Piombino and demands against the Papal States, on top of their aggressive expansion in Savoy.
    • OOC: That wasn't an attempt at an unlawful seizure, I just misunderstood who owned Piombino and thought France did. When Cal informed me that he owned it, I now longer claimed to be seizing it. Also I know what you meant but I didn't expand in Savoy technically.
    • Papal Dip: The Papal envoy clarifies that the Papacy considers there to be a state of war between Italy and the Papal States, and calls on France to assist.
  • Iberia: Hearing of colonial Russian settlements in Alaska, the viceroy of Nova Galiza and acting viceroy of California, Gavriel de Villafrecha, sends an expedition of four ships to discover any Russian presence and reassert Iberian claims to the Pacific Northwest. The explorer Hortun de la Cerda is placed in charge of the expedition and commands the flagship Rosália. He is accompanied by Pirro Salugarate in the Guadalupe, and two smaller vessels. Overall, the expedition numbers about 140 men. Hortun sets sail from São Brás (OTL San Blas) and travels up the coast of California to Indian Bay (San Francisco Bay), extensively mapping the area. After stopping once on the Mzerka coast, the fleet continues north. Hortun reaches as far as Point Grenville, Washington, before turning back due to scurvy onboard the Rosália. On the return voyage, he discovers the mouth of the Columbia River. Pirro Salugarate continues north with the Guadalupe and the Vizelva, while the fourth ship accompanies Hortun back to São Brás. On August 17, Pirro Salugarate enters Sitka Sound, immediately discovering evidence of Russian settlement on the island. He arrives at Novoarchangelsk the same day, and remains there for some time, enjoying cordial relations with the Russian settlers. Aware of the importance of his discovery, however, Salugarate hastens his return to São Brás. The Vizelva is the final ship to return to São Brás, having explored part of Kruzof Island and Prince of Wales Island on the way. With verifiable reports of Russian activity, Iberia ramps up its naval presence on the Pacific coast. Places visited by Hortun de la Cerda's expedition are given Iberian names on official maps in order to assert Iberia's sovereignty in the region; these include Mount São Jacinto (Mount Edgecumbe), Porto Villafrecha (Bucareli Bay), and Rio de São Roque (Columbia River). Novoarchangelsk is aptly named "Russian Town". Gavriel de Villafrecha begins preparing a second voyage to uncover the true extent of Russian colonization. Maranhão continues expanding along the Tocantins and Araguaia rivers and into Maranhão, Tocantins and Piauí. A mission and settlement are founded at Tefé, extending Maranhão's claims further into the interior. Nova Lusitânia expands down the Arauca, Casanare, and Meta Rivers. Settlement and expansion of Mêcicipi and Texas continues.
  • Scandinavia: King Eric's is ailing in health Crown Prince Olaf is a lad of 20, a good military commander and a good diplomat. They send an offer of White Peace to Burgundy and Britain (Player Response). They offer Belka a trade agreement and begin trying to improve relations while they watch them attack the Austrians, they also ask for a technological treaty. (Player Response) Sven Hadrada has began training the army harder as his brother Johann Hadrada has the majority of the Royal Fleet at port in Visby, while the straits between Sweden and Denmark are also heavily defended. An Alliance is offered to Russia (Player Response). The King sends Sven Hadrada to order the Saxons to abandon Oldenburg. (Player Response) They also begin taking Bremerhaven.
    • Prince Eric's Land: Vinland expands 50 px inland to get the valuable furs and timber, an explorer reaches as Far East as the OTL Great Slave Lake. Pioneers and farmers move east in hope of finding more arable land to the east on the shore. 50 px
  • Russia: Tuvov is expanded 10 px inland from the Susitna River in the area of Matanuska south. It is also expanded eastwards along the coast to make land contact with Novoarchangelsk. Novoruthenia is expanded 10 px up the Petrov River. An envoy is dispatched by the Governor of Novorossiya to land at Indian Bay, and to travel further south to work out a claimed land deal with Iberia. Savinkov declines Scandinavias alliance offer. Savinkov dispatches 20,000 professional soldiers to Mersin, where they March inland to the city of Adana and send a letter to the Sultan of Rum declaring, "By the order of Vozdh Boris Savinkov, the Russian State recognizes the independence of the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia." With Poland going to be tied up in Belka, Savinkov begins planning to make sure Poland would never pull a 1673 again. Bluyz music starts to become popular among Russia's poor and youth.
  • Jaffarid Sultanate: In response to Belka's aggression, we prepare a minimum of 200,000 troops and begin militarizing our state in hopes of having Belka simply avoid us. We also show support for whatever remains of Rum, even though they have been conquered. Tahir ali Baaligh is selected as the next Sultan. Acceptance of all religions and cultures continues to prove good effects, especially due to the next generation of youthful citizens accepting it more and more. Rat's and Owls, although controversial for it's thoughts around social classes and how republicanism will take over the world, has become a smash hit among citizens, holding the number one spot for "Most books sold" throughout the year. Dulkadir is placed on high alert, with important pieces of art and literature being moved to Arabia proper in case of a possible invasion.
  • Sultanate of Cyprus: Sultan Kamil begin to fix the budget, giving back the fiances that were cut by Saif. He also begin to pass more liberal laws, allowing access to most literature and making the Great Library of Nicosia open to all scholars from the Muslim world (he is still a little bit worried of Europeans). Still, the Gregorian calendar is made legal once more. Still, the famine in Anatolia also affect the island. After long thoughts, Kamil decide to focus on his enlighted reforms and let the local administrators fix the famine themselves. In May, a failed prison break lead to the death of Saif and some soldiers who attempted to get him out. Some suspect that it was all a plot by Kamil to get rid of his brother without getting his hands dirty. Saif is buried in the Abbasid Crypt, next to the previous deceased Sultan of Cyprus. For the ceremony, the rest of Kamil's family return to the island. They are convinced by Kamil to return permanently. The full Faridic branc of the Abbasid Dynasty is finally back on Cyprus after 21 years of exile. With the situation in Rum, Kamil offer his fleet to help refugees escape the region and invite Turkish refugees to establish themselves in Cyprus.
  • Cologne: In response to the fortification of Vienna, Archbishop Ludwich sponsors the re-fortifying of the walls around Cologne and Essen. Meanwhile, he is excited about the newly-formed Rhineland League and drafts a series of documents based on their mutual opinions, in order to make it enticing for Sponheim and Cleves-Mark to join when they inevitably realise the threat that German peoples are under. The Rhineland League also makes a pact to defensively assist each other when attacked by larger nations, as appears to be on the horizon. The now-medium-sized Kolsch militia begins training troops from other Rhineland League states (Trier, Berg, and wider Westphalia) and arms them with Westphalian weaponry. Many skilled engineers from the Essenian mines arrive in Westphalia when Archbishop Ludwich calls for a push for weaponry, and update the weaponry to make it more modern. At the Imperial Diet in Regensburg later that year, Archbishop Ludwich promises to assist as much as he can. Meanwhile, the University of Cologne continues to look into neoscholasticism, neocynicism and capitalism, publishing impartial reviews of them on-and-off throughout the year.
    • Essen: Adelphinian Canonesses in New Essen send some of their most learned canonesses to the Continental Congress in Central Arcadia on a peaceful attempt to simply see what’s going on and gain information. Some Tagalog canonesses also join, interested to see that Mayan ethnicities are also present. Meanwhile in New Germany, New Netherlands, and Tondo, new hospitals are built with the additional funds flowing from the trade of coal in Essen itself, and the education system incorporates a council that has connections to the other educational institutions (University of Cologne, Essen, Tondo, and New Essen) in order to keep it updated on all the relevant practices. As a result, some neoscholasticism in response to the Enlightenment arrives in the University of New Essen. In other news, Adelphinian Canonesses worldwide continue to actively assist the Inquisition.
  • Pueblo Confederacy: The Smallpox epidemic begins to wind down due in part to the medical knowledge of our priests. Realtions with the Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot begin to cool. We severely disapprove of their leaving of the Catholic Church. We threaten to leave the Union. At the same time, however, we send secret envoys to the Continental Congress requesting to join. Additionally we ask for a trade agreement with British Arcadia.
    • Mzerkan Diplomacy: We want to inform you that we did not leave the Catholic church if that is posible just that some priests have converted to Mzerojudaism, which is not a national policy of us.
  • Jin dynasty: Tribal revolts within the Mongolia Commandery are quelled, ensuring political stability. An elite consisting of Chinese military officers and defectors is established, and a sedentary sinicized lifestyle is heavily encouraged. In order to avoid any resentment, Mongolians are exempted from taxes. State-owned ships are sent to Bengal and India, in order to gather more information about said regions. Missionary activities are undertaken by the Holiest Procurator of the Heavenly Teachings (or otherwise known as the Eastern-rite Church) in Southeast Asia. The policy of militarization continues to be pursued, with shipyards, arsenals, and industrial facilities dedicated to producing armaments and other military-related objects being built. Basic sanitation continues to be promoted: public bathhouses, spas, latrines, and sewage systems are all built. Adequate irrigation alongside other projections such as mass distribution of pluviometres and water gauges create an increase in the productivity of agriculture. To facilitate transportation and growing merchantile acitvities, paved roads are built. Commercialization and the division of labour continues, resulting from a heightened demand for commercial goods from both the domestic and foreign market.
    • Nivkh Commandery: Tiger Pastries Inc., a subsidiary of Lady Lin Tea, continues to flourish as a business. The Nivkh Prince-Governor (which is the member of the Nivkh Ayzik branch of the House of Kim) continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively.
    • Sakha (protectorate): The Khan continues to adopt Korean and Chinese architecture, paving roads to facilitate transport, and replacing wood and thatch roofing with stone bricks and clay tiles, respectively. Siberian crab-apples become a local renowned fruit, and is particularly prized in Korea and northern China.
    • Xizang (protectorate): Lhasa, the capital, is expanded and modernized. The Tibetan clergy continues to administer the protectorate, with its leader, the Dalai Lama, being considered a vassal or substitute monarch. Many Tibetans are encouraged (via financial incentives) to become more sedentary, with food instead being supplied from nearby Sichuan (thereby reducing overreliance in inefficient herding).
    • Port of Nangang: The Emperor decides send more emissaries to the Angu peoples and peripheral tribes in Haegajang in-order to enrich the knowledge of their culture, while sends more colonists to cement the colony of Nangang from any tribal intrusions. Mixed-racial children continue to be orphaned and sent to the Angu.
    • North Mongolia: Rule is centralized. A sedentary lifestyle is encouraged. A capital called Yurt is established at the eastern banks of Lake Baikal.
  • Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot: Mzerojudaism keeps spreadings fast so much that more then half the Mzerkan priests. The first Mzerojudaist ideals are still quite similar to Christianity but they remove the holy cross and they begin to adapt the food eating regulations of the Jews plus adding chipmunk to the forbidden list to include more pagan Mzerkans to join. Some common people also begin to convert to Mzerojudaism but they are a big minority. The National Congress, seeing the rise of a new religion, chose to make the congress open to all religions and that they as a system won't follow one religion and that there freedom of religion. The National Congress, on hearing of the founding of the "Congress of hundreds", ask if they would like to have the two congresses work together more under certain terms to bring more democracy to the continent(Mod respond)
    • Papal Dip: The response to the Mzerkan request having just arrived back from Rome (it was delayed by the impending war) is as follows: the Church in Mzerka will be granted a Cardinal (for logistical purposes he will have to live in Rome, but obviously will be a native Mzerkan), and inculturation of particularly Mzerkan aspects is already permitted per the norms of the encyclical Plane Compertum. Given the Papacy's longstanding and substantial assistance and friendship it has had with the Mzerkans, the Pope asks that the Mzerkan government protect and encourage Catholicism within its borders. [OOC: also, I think it's a little implausible for 'Mzerojudaisim' to spread too fast, but obviously I have biases in that respect.]
    • Mzerkan Dip: We just want to inform that Mzerojudaism spread since its just slight change to Christianity but with more Jewish influence and that it is mostly priests who converted and a small amouth of commoners. (so it's more of a Jewish influenced version of Christianity)..
    • The Congress of the Hundred agrees to cooporate with the Naitonal Congress insofar as to understand what terms they should obligate to -Nate
  • Papal States: The Papal Army engages in battle with the Italians, alongside our French allies. The roaming Inquisition courts are sent off to the various missionary territories.
  • Salish Nation: We take steps to turn Dwuamish into a better city. The missionaries instruct us on more productive farming methods, making our population climb even more. The settlement that broke away is occupied by our army, forcing them to rejoin our nation. (OOC: Sorry for short turn, might improve later, might not.)  
  • Belkan Federation: Vozdh Sakharov pushes heavily on Austria and Munich but specifically pushes the siege of Vienna. "If Vienna falls, so does southern Germany" he says in an address to his top aides. The Soviet of the economy, warns the Vozdh that his massive expansion of the army is having an effect on the economy, and that without a new influx of capital or markets that the Belkan economy is truly on the road to ruin. However, he is dismissed as the Soviet of War Petar affirms that the sieges of Vienna and Munich will lead to the economic solution that the econonomic minister is searching for. The Home front still leads to massive training of reserve forces with nearly 1.1 million men at arms at home in some form of preperatory form of service for the army. The Navy is not exactly neglected and with the mass production of materials for war there is an excess of cannons and materials that could be used for the navy which leads to the direct modernization or building of new ships to replace older ships. These are directly competitive to the Burgundian and British ships. (algos coming for Vienna and Munich). The massive invasion leaves a new plan open to the Belkan generals, Petar details Brusilov that following the seizure of Vienna that a task force of 150,000 will be sent to Bohemia to liberate the czechs from this inefficient system and bring them into the alliance that the Vozdh has taken to calling the "Slavic Entente". The final battles for Vienna and Munich take place relatively close together as the Belkan armies assail the various forts and defenses of both cities one after another, the Munich siege is approached differently as the siege masters Vasilev and Justinian are to be deployed to handle the siege. However, with Justinian distracted in Vienna the assault on Munich doesnt take place until well after the Vienna siege. The decisive battle for Vienna begins when General Petar Dracultesti and Justinian launch a massed assault at the first forts of the city reducing them in a surprise attack and dribing the Austrians back to the city. However, when beginning the follow up they go about it differently deploying howitzers in large numbers to preserve some of the more ancient structures of Vienna while also terrifying the Austrian soldiers remaining. Following what is known as a grand bombardment the Belkan soldiers part of the 4th and 5th Grenadiers regiments storm a gap in the cities defenses which is immediately exploited. Munich is plain and simple overrun as the ill prepared defenses leave the Belkans able to completely overrun the city.
  • Ququququ: The Koito reform continues and as the Ququququ nation is finally stable enough, the outlying tribes are contacted in order to induce them into the Union. (basically, slow map expansion, approved by Feud). The Japanese contact continues, and Ququququ continue adopting children born of interracial relations in the Jin port, in order to avoid the infanticide. With a solidified rule the Ququququ are now a most formidable force in the region, with infrastructural advancement putting them on a higher level than any other tribes, as well as their linguistic unity. Moreover, the Ququququ slowly organize their military and begin creating better weapons compared to their non-organized neighbours, using metals such as iron, with guidance of the Nangang emissaries. As the nation is much more stable right now, the Ququququ begin outreaching to more tribes, preparing their next step of expansion as the Council notices the Japanese and Jin superiority compared to Ququququ, so they understand that they too must expand in order to develop.
  • United Kingdom of Great Britain: England has 6.9 million people and inside of that London has a population of 0.8 million, Wales has 0.6 million, Ireland has 3.0 million people and Scotland 1.1 million. The British army has 3000 in Portsmouth, 3000 in Aldershot, 2000 in Scotland, 3000 in Ireland while 2000 in Arcadia, 2000 in Casablanca, 1000 in English Maiam, 1000 in Haiti as well as 500 in St George, St Helena, New Canterbury and Bay of Kost. 10,000 militia are called up and sent to defend and fortify Plymouth, Torquay, Poole and Cowes. The fleet is divided with 150 ships stationed in Portsmouth, 150 ships stationed in Bristol and 50 in New London. The British East Indian company continues to operate well with trade and running an army. The inheritance tax continues to see a slow build up of land which largely grows cotton. Cavalry innovations such as Cuirassier and Hussars are completed. In Britain itself the continuing new trend of commercialisation and industrialisation continues. The sale of textiles such as silk and cotton continues to rise amongst the middle class, the production of iron rises for machine tools, farming implements and factories which requires larger amounts of coal leading to an increase in coal mining. The Cranege brothers experiment with the use of the reverberatory furnace for the production of wrought iron from cast iron using coal fuel at the Coalbrookdale iron works under the sponsorship of Richard Reynolds in England. The spinning Jenny sees production and usage by cotton spinners massively reducing costs leading to a rise in the number of those employed in weaving.
    • British Arcadia:  In addition local militia forces do exist but they aren't standing and are spread out although they are armed. Seeing Burgundy invade and aware the settlers are unhappy the British army and colonial militias launch a push into Iroquois lands. A large group of several thousand settlers push 50 px into OTL Pennsylvania from the south establishing farms and stuff as they go with 3000 professional British troops and 2000 militia. If the Iroquois counterattack then we defend the advancing settlers. The militia is commanded by Alexander Washington a landowner and surveyor. There is a militia of 21,000 citizens who are while nonprofessional do have weapons and supplies. The colonies are at 2.3 million people. The Royal Navy continue patrols in the Atlantic. The British government make an effort to move more volunteers from Africa including its new holdings in Morocco and from India.  

Hawaii: This year the king decides to travel to France personally, and departs from Hawaii at the head of a modest fleet, accompanied by many of his family members and friends, including Boki, Jean Naukane, and other chiefs well versed in European customs. The group arrives in France later in the year, where a French gentleman helps aclimate the king and his guests. The king and his entourage become a fascination of the French public, especially since the king is over six and a half feet tall, making him stand out in public. The king visits the Basilica of St. Denis, but refuses to enter, not wanting to desecrate the burial site of the French kings, as he is not of blood relation. For the next month the king attends operas, visits with dignitaries, and tours the country. Before his scheduled meeting with the King of France, however, he and his favorite wife are stricken by sickness (measles), and later both pass away. A state funeral is held in Paris where hundreds of locals look on in fascination. Boki eventually has the audience with the French king on the late king's behalf. Later in the year the party departs back to Hawaii, where the Kate king is buried, while his brother is crowned Kamehameha III.

  • Italian League: Having won one decisive battle in central Italy, which repulsed the hostile Papal invasion, half of the nation's raised profressional soldiers move to Ligura to defend the territory and join the already raised Liguran and Sardinian garrisons in the region, to repulse the French expedition. The other half of the League's mobilized army remains in central Italy, prepared to begin moving into Papal territory. We propose the Treaty of Trento to form peace with both nations. (More to come)

1767

Another day another Yonglu event. SupremeSensualSamrāṭSky 22:00, August 18, 2017 (UTC)

The Yonglu solidify their grasp over Top End peninsula and spread further into the OTL Northern Australia region.

WIth Vienna and Munich fallen, the Diet of Regansburg officially collects a coalition of HRE states to all fight Belka. At the start of the diet, 300,000 troops (from the NPC HRE states) already pledge their support. Poland also invades Belka with 50,000 troops to help Austria. 

The Zulu civil war expands in scope as the capital of Tonopane is taken by a new independent claimant to the throne, Bakla Nuro. With an army of nearly 50,000 he stands in one of the commanding positions in the civil war as he rallies key nobles to his side. He is, however, open to Christianity and accepts Papal legates into the capital and other cities he controls.

An estimated 200,000 more people die in Central and Western anatolia formerly under Rum due to famine caused by the requisition of supplies by the Belkan armies. 

In Scandinavia, Haroldson wins over a small but fervent group of supporters. Although his Catholics are firmly in the minority, they are large enough to create problems for the king and government and band together with nobles who are enemies of the Hardradas to curtail their power.

  • Jaffarid Sultanate: With the city of Ankara having fallen two years ago and the disorganization of Eastern Rum, we ask the provisional government to become our vassal for a minimum of 30 years in an effort of restoring the state and militarizing it in case of a Belkan invasion (Mod). We also begin to promote the idea to citizens in Western and Eastern Rum to immigrate to Arabia to find "a better life than under Belkan rule". Fictional books begin to appear more and more around Damascus and Baghdad following the increment of short stories about the Avengers. Acceptance of all religions and cultures continues to prove good effects, especially due to the next generation of youthful citizens accepting it more and more. Sultan Tahir, extremely influenced by Mu'tamid al-Satter books, Maghreb's Amadlan Lekka, and the Cypriot governance, announces that Arabia will be changing for the better during his reign.
  • Russia: Prince Anatoly Rurik takes the Throne of the Kingdom of Cilicia. Vozdh Boris Savinkov seeing his chances declares war on Poland and takes an army 300,000 strong (260,000 nonprofessional and 40,000 professional, the other professional are in Anatolia). The surprise invasion catches the Poles off guard, who only have 60,000 troops left, amassed at Warsaw, go into battle against the army lead by Trusted right hand man of Savinkov, Lavr Romanov. Settlement on Chichagof island is expanded 5 px. Tuvov is expanded 10 px west along the coast. Novoruthenia is expanded 10 px southeast. Russia offers to buy the entire West Bank of Lake Baikal extending the whole way to the south bank before it becomes the south bank (Candies Respond). A local entertainer in Cinigrad stumbles out of a tavern drunk, passes out, wakes up, and returns home and begins to write a masterpiece song on his six-stringed guitar. The man Erik Zhilov writes a masterpiece in Russian musical culture called "Mountains of Aleyska." A former pianist, Zhilov tours Novorossiya and Eastern Siberia performing "Mountains of Aleyska" along with other songs like "Arctic Rose" and "Stiv's Bluyz." Romanov had won the initiall battle, but 30,000 casualties had Romanov take a rest, five days later after the 1st inital battle, Romanov ordered another attack on Warsaw. The second attack was sucessful with poland taking 15,300 casulties. Seargent Dimirti Orlovsky climbs the local estate building and plans the Stripes-and-Sword upon the buildings roof. The remnant polish army of 35,700 men falls out across Poland. Savinkov also refuses blanantly to Magnus' face to alow him or his troops to participate in the war.
    • China says OK.
  • Augsburg: We request an alliance with Belka.
  • Empire of Uluru: Art and music continue to be developed across Anangu, first developed in Ngarridjeri and spread to the court nobility in the tributary states. The central library at Ngarridjeri has the complete collection of literature produced in Anangu thus far. The Moornoon class of clerics continue to be trained at Uluru and spread across southern Anangu. Economy continues to grow with more farmlands spread and more ships for fishing created. Kangaroo Island is fully annexed as a province of the Empire, placing a local Bakhan to rule it. The central banking system regulates the spread of Taro in the nation, and the wealthiest taro-owners emerge. The wives and concubines help to raise the sons of Yannathan at Ngarrindjeri. An army of 10,000 men, dressed in the finest armor riding horses and bearing war dingos and war kangaroos, carrying the banner of Uluru, arrives in Yolgnu. They relay a message from his imperial majesty, the King of Everything, that this land of Yolgnu should submit itself as a vassal to Yannathan the Emperor (MOD RESPONSE).
  • Riviere D'argent: More Mesquites continue migrating to Peru as well as marrying into local Quechua populations. Francis Bolivique and his cadre of Republicans go to meet Prussian Revolutionaries in Uruguay to talk about unity between the various peoples of Rivier De Argent and Peru under Republicanism. They meet Harold Liebknecht, a Prussian Jewish philosopher who decides to join them. Viceroy Hugo Martin keeps a close eye on these revolutionaries and co-opts General Savadefq as a spy for him. The religion of Santeria continues to grow and syncretize with Christianity. New Marseille continues to grow. Laurentian French, the dialect of French in Riviere D’argent and Peru, becomes more popular and distinct from mainland French, incorporating German and Quechua words and phrases. More migrants from the war in Europe come to Riviere D'argent and Peru. Francis Bolivique, Harold Liebknecht, Cornelio Savadefq, and some other republicans travel to Belkas to see how their republic functions. The guitar becomes popular among Prussian and European immigrants as several Mesquites and some Prussians form a band known as Sublime. They publish their first song, "Santeria", named after the religion that is currently growing in the underbelly of New Marseille. The song becomes an instant hit and they decide to write another one. They also write another song, "Se Que Jai" or "What I got" in English, that also becomes a big hit. Francis Bolivique founds the "United New World Congress" to pursue more autonomy for states in Laurentia and Arcadia and offers that representatives from all colonies in the new world come, including some from the Lower Arcadian Congress (Mod Response and Player Responses). We continue expanding to further connect Rivier D'argent and Peru, expanding along the coast until the two connect. 
    • New Essen Diplomacy: Adelphinian Canonesses from New Essen (in New Germany, OTL Florida) join the United New World Congress and bring with them their knowledge of the world learned from the University of Cologne. Some Tagalog Canonesses are also in attendance.
  • Cologne: Archbishop Ludwich is horrified at the fall of both Vienna and Munich, and sends 7000 troops to assist the Holy Roman Empire against the Belkan hordes. He arms them with Westphalian weaponry, updated by the Essenian engineers, and begins to pray. And pray. And pray. Further in response to this threat and the fall of Munich, so close to home, the archbishop makes an impassioned call to Sponheim and Cleves-Mark (Mod response, please) to change their mind and join the Rhineland League in their pact to assist each other even as the HRE seemingly begins to fall at the seat of the emperor. Meanwhile, the University of Cologne gains a more significant female presence as many men go off to war, and there are a few significant papers published or collaborated on by women, about neocynicism, neoscholasticism, and capitalism. The Enlightenment is also studied.
    • Essen: Adelphinian Canonesses continue to actively assist the Inquisition. Meanwhile, the councils built into the education systems in New Germany, New Netherlands and Tondo (and Essen) start to make their way over the first few bumps in the system. Canonesses continue to attend all the relevant Congresses in Arcadia.
  • Pueblo Confederacy: Our population once again reaches 110,000 after we subjugate some northern Ute tribes. The Comanche resume raiding our trade routes. Several european styled towns and missions are founded around the state by Iberian Immigrants. These Iberian settlers are given fair representation in the Council of Elders. We send a secret envoy to the Continental Congress asking to join (Mod Response). Additionally we ask for a trade agreement from British Arcadia (England Response). WepPut significant pressure on the Navajo to join our confederacy where they will have equal rights as well as military protection, economic development and for the most part self government (Mod Response).
  • Sultanate of Cyprus: Sultan Kamil began implementing social reforms to help the Turkish refugees find jobs and homes on the island. A small community of Turkish refugees begin to form in Kyrenia. The power of the religious elites are diminished by the Sultan, who is aiming for an enlightened monarchy and does not want powerful factions interfering with his reforms.
  • Ququququ: The Koito reform continues and as the Ququququ nation is finally stable enough, the outlying tribes are contacted in order to induce them into the Union. (basically, slow map expansion, approved by Feud). The Japanese contact continues, and Ququququ continue adopting children born of interracial relations in the Jin port, in order to avoid the infanticide. With a solidified rule the Ququququ are now a most formidable force in the region, with infrastructural advancement putting them on a higher level than any other tribes, as well as their linguistic unity. Moreover, the Ququququ slowly organize their military and begin creating better weapons compared to their non-organized neighbours, using metals such as iron, with guidance of the Nangang emissaries. As the nation is much more stable right now, the Ququququ begin outreaching to more tribes, preparing their next step of expansion as the Council notices the Japanese and Jin superiority compared to Ququququ, so they understand that they too must expand in order to develop.
  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies and adapt more plants to the Swahili climate. The army continues convincing contracted servants. We continue colonial expansion in Northern Somalia, in the South and in the Malindi and Mombassa area. Colonisation steadily increase as medicine and weaponry becomes more widespread. Technological advances speed up as a result of the cultural and technological exchanges in the embassies. The Royal Science Society is formed with an alliance between the major Madrassahs.
    • Lakshadweep: The island of Lakshadweep continues development.
    • Sefuwa: The colony of Sefuwa continues the construction of a port.
    • Huriya: The port in Inhassoro is finished and becomes the Southern base of the Swahili navy. Swahili culture is brought by merchants and diplomats.
    • Rowzi: Mosques are constructed to help spread Islam. Swahili merchants continues increasing trade between the two nations.
    • Swahili Diplomacy: We send economic and arms support to the strongest faction opposing Bakla.
  • Belkan Federation: Vozdh Sakharov dies this year leading to the forced replacement and an election. In a near unanimous election Petar Dracultesti is voted in as Vozdh legitimately by the government for his currently successful plan in Southern Germany. Vozdh Petar immediately takes control of his army once again and appoints Brusilov as his Soviet of War to replace himself. With the dual pronged issue to handle, and even with Russian support Vasilev is repositioned to handle the Polish army with 150,000 troops split off from the first field army into the 1-3rd armies which operate as a corps under him. This force meets the 50,000 strong Polish force in Moldavia near the site of the last Polish invasion and engages them in a decisive battle near Iasi in Moldavia. (algo to come). This coincides with the Belkan invasion of the now Named Czechia as 500,000 troops push from Vienna into Bohemia meeting the nearly 300,000 strong HRE force in open battle near Prague at their staging grounds catching the force somewhat off guard under General Justinian hoping to wipe out or cut in half the HRE army
  • The kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot:The National congres keeps growing and with king Philpe Augsthino Diltwa realy sick and without heir they begin to prepare for who will succeed him after his death.The national congres also now takes power over the army and navy for a moment until a new king can be chosen.In Diltwa Wituye there are rumors about a miner who they suspect to be the messenger of God to learn the Mzerkans how to live the ideal life.His name and origin are still unknown but his story begins to spread with the Mzerojudaist priests..Our farmers keep increasing the number of sheep so much so that it becomes available for the lower middle class in good numbers for making clothing.
    • Papal Diplomacy: The Prefect for Missions sends a large number of medically-trained Immaculata priests to Mzerka in an attempt to bolster the Catholic Church there.
  • Scandinavia: The conquered territories of Oldenburg and Bremen are made into the Kingdom of Bremen with Sven Hadrada as the First King, it is a Scandinavian puppet in Northern Germany, with the Russian Aggression in Poland King Eric sends his eldest son Magnus to the Russian leader, to offer 20,000 Scandinavian Veterans to help in his war. The Catholics are offered land on the island of Visby, where they will not be persecuted or alternatively land in Kingdom of Bremen that already contains a large Catholic population.
  • United Kingdom of Great Britain: England has 7.0 million people and inside of that London has a population of 0.8 million, Wales has 0.6 million, Ireland has 3.1 million people and Scotland 1.1 million. The British army has 3000 in Portsmouth, 3000 in Aldershot, 2000 in Scotland, 3000 in Ireland while 2000 in Arcadia, 2000 in Casablanca, 1000 in English Maiam, 1000 in Haiti as well as 500 in St George, St Helena, New Canterbury and Bay of Kost. 10,000 militia are called up and sent to defend and fortify Plymouth, Torquay, Poole and Cowes.

The Royal Navy continue patrols in the Atlantic. The British government make an effort to move more volunteers from Africa including its new holdings in Morocco and from India. Daniel Boone goes through the Cumberland Gap to find new hunting grounds. The colonies create a cabinet with Alexander Washington elected as First Minister of Arcadia who is appointed by the King with the support of the Arcadian Parliament.
      • New World Congress Dip: Seeing as how British settlers are unhappy after having Burgundy invade them, Francis Bolivique invites several of the settlers to the congress meeting New Marseille (Rio de Janeiro).  
  • Iberia: Gavriel de Villafrecha receives the Russian envoy in São Brás, but the two fail to make a conclusive agreement. He does, however, put Iberia's realistic claims south of Sitka, perhaps unintentionally recognizing Russian settlement in Alaska. Meanwhile, Iberian traders become active in Nootka Sound and parts of Oregon following sponsorship by the government. Maranhão continues expanding along the Tocantins and Araguaia rivers and into Maranhão, Tocantins and Piauí. Nova Lusitânia expands down the Arauca, Casanare and Meta Rivers. Settlement and expansion of Mêcicipi and Texas continues. Iberia disputes Burgundian claims to the Western Mississippi, recognizing it as Choctaw territory and part of Henrique's Land. East Timor is fully absorbed into the Timor colony this year. The native states of the interior essentially become vassals to the colony.
  • Papal States: The Pope reluctantly realises that the war will not be won, and sends a special Nuncio to Trent to sign the treaty. Missions continue.

Another day another turn without sky. You have one hour to remove your inevitably-regretful mistakes. Oh, I didn't mean to push that button!Oh, well leave a message I guess 03:30, August 20, 2017 (UTC)

The king of Mzerka dies of an intestinal fungus from eating a potato. Having the most prominent nobles of the kingdom gather in a council to share power, as a temporary situation until they can decide who should be king.

Various rumors grow in Belka, with the rapid growth of power in the Italian League, and from the more paranoid warhawks of the Federal Government, that the League secretly plans to invade Belka while they are distracted by invading the HRE, in order to obtain land from Istria and incite rebellion from the Croats in Damaltia. Later on, an unidentified group of military raided a town in Istria, before local authorities forced them back towards the Italian peninsula. Around the same time, a Belkan ship was apparently sank in the Adriatic sea with all hands down, but the guilty ship retreated before being identified.

I suppose Rum is a vassal of Arabia.

Cleves-Mark and Sponheim join with the Westphalian League while sending their support to the HRE.

Navajo joins the Pueblo.

The first circus appears in London.

The first encyclopedia is published in Iberia.

In Russia, Prince Konstantin disappears from captivity. Many suspect a potential royalist plot to put him back on the throne. In anticipation of this, a secret network is developed in the cities of Russia for people to signal to each other when the "time" comes.

  • Empire of Uluru: Art and music continue to be developed across Anangu, first developed in Ngarridjeri and spread to the court nobility in the tributary states. The central library at Ngarridjeri has the complete collection of literature produced in Anangu thus far. The Moornoon class of clerics continue to be trained at Uluru and spread across southern Anangu. Economy continues to grow with more farmlands spread and more ships for fishing created. Kangaroo Island is fully annexed as a province of the Empire, placing a local Bakhan to rule it. The central banking system regulates the spread of Taro in the nation, and the wealthiest taro-owners emerge. The wives and concubines help to raise the sons of Yannathan at Ngarrindjeri. Seeing that Yolgnu has not submitted itself to be ruled by the inevitable dominance of the Emperor, Lord of the Universe, Yannathan sends 50,000 men led by his eldest son, Dickadick. Dickadick is appointed the ruler of Yolgnu after he succeeds to crush the nation. 
  • Italian League: The Treaty of Trento is signed officially ending the war with the Papal States. This year's consuls are elected on a platform of rebuilding the nation, stabilization, and abstaining from wars for the forseeable future. Nevertheless new ships continue to be built, and the army continues to be trained and stationed in strategic locations, due to the outbreak of war elsewhere in Europe. When the government learns of the supposed raid across the border into Belka the government immediately issues warrants for the perpetrators' arrest, not wanting to harm relations with our strongest ally. It is believed that the attack was orchestrated by traditionalist Belkans who had fled the country during the civil war, and wanted to incite instability within the new Belkan Federation. Our government reiterates that we are strong supporter's of Belka's revolution, and will continue to aid them.
  • Jaffarid Sultanate: We begin developing Eastern Rum. Fictional books begin to appear more and more around Damascus and Baghdad following the increment of short stories about the Avengers. Acceptance of all religions and cultures continues to prove good effects, especially due to the next generation of youthful citizens accepting it more and more.
    • Eastern Rum: With the flooding in of Rummish citizens from Western Rum, Alpyurek Kazak, a high-class Turkish citizen from Dulkadir, is appointed to lead as Sultan to lead the state back to recovering and to also lead the government following the siege of Ankara and the death of the former Sultan?.

To avoid one faction of the confederacy from having two much power, a united capital is established in neutral Santa Fe. Our population has grown to nearly 230,000. Christian missions begin in earnest in the Navajo section of the confederacy. the territory of the confederacy now stretches from OTL southeast Utah to OTL Flagstaff Arizona in the west, to OTL Las Cruces in the south. We send a secret envoy to the Continental Congress asking to join.
  • Ququququ: The Koito reform continues and as the Ququququ nation is finally stable enough, the outlying tribes are contacted in order to induce them into the Union. (basically, slow map expansion, approved by Feud). The Japanese contact continues, and Ququququ continue adopting children born of interracial relations in the Jin port, in order to avoid the infanticide. With a solidified rule the Ququququ are now a most formidable force in the region, with infrastructural advancement putting them on a higher level than any other tribes, as well as their linguistic unity. Moreover, the Ququququ slowly organize their military and begin creating better weapons compared to their non-organized neighbours, using metals such as iron, with guidance of the Nangang emissaries. As the nation is much more stable right now, the Ququququ begin outreaching to more tribes, preparing their next step of expansion as the Council notices the Japanese and Jin superiority compared to Ququququ, so they understand that they too must expand in order to develop.
  • Iberia: Seeing the Papacy forced to sign an unfavorable treaty with the Italian League, surrender their rightful territory, and renounce their alliance with France, the devout Catholic King Henrique offers an alliance with the Papal States to help reinstate the status quo ante bellum, or at least defend against future aggression. Royal marriages are also offered to the kingdoms of France and Corsica, in order to solidify commitment against the League's warmongering. Maranhão continues expanding along the Tocantins and Araguaia rivers and into Maranhão, Tocantins and Piauí. Nova Lusitânia expands down the Arauca, Casanare and Meta Rivers. Settlement and expansion of Mêcicipi and Texas continues. Mêcicipi disputes Burgundian claims in the region by fortifying the city of Velha-Henrique.
  • Russia: Novoruthenia is expanded 10px Southwest along the Aleut Peninsula. Tuvov is expanded 10pv along the Tuvov inlet. Novoarchengelsk is expanded 5px west on Chuckaguf Island. The Siberian Governate Sets a quota at 100,000 Citizens for Tuvov to be accepted as a province of Russia. The Governor of Tuvov decides to send Captain Dimitri Gorbachev to map the Western coastline of Arcadia and stake out a claim for Russia. Gorbachev is reluctantly helped out on this expedition by Fort Resnov Which helps him navigate past a large unclaimed Island which after one crew member on the Ship Kiev sees a bigfoot, Gorbachev renames to Sasquatch Island and claims it for Russia and his own personal hunting grounds to kill one of the damn creatures. Erik Zhilov starts to tour Siberia with his backing group. During one gig in Gorod Vostok, the bass mans E guitar string breaks, this pioneers another feet in Bluyz and String Baroque history, the bass man has to use cello from a local store. The low sounding tones make the cello perfect for Bass. With that Zhilov makes two new hits, "Righteous" and "Cossacks Night Out". Savinkov sends in another 57,000 soldiers to take the rest of Poland. The troops begin to fan out across Poland.
    • Cilicia: King Anatoly begins the de-Islamization of the nation. Many monuments to Rumese or Caliphate leaders are torn down. The King creates the Cilician National Assembally, which would represent Armenians in the face of their Russian king.
  • Riviere D’argent: More Mesquites continue immigrating into Peru, forming communities along the rivers. Francis Bolivique travels to France to meet with French revolutionaries about turning France and its colonies into Republics. Laurentian French becomes more distinct as it blends with German and Quechua. Francis Bolivique limits the New World Congress to the french laurentian colonies, but keeps the name in hope of extending to more areas in the future. The New World Congress holds its first meeting (TBW). Hugo Martin meets again with the Peruvian Viceroy about greater union between their viceroyalties and asks France about a union between Riviere D’argent and Peru (French Response Please). Santeria grows among Mesquite populations and begins to seep into Prussian populations as well. German becomes less spoken in favor of Laurentian French. Viceroy Hugo Martin begins drawing up plans of making autonomous provinces of the theoretical Peruvian-Argentian Union which includes Uruguay (for Germans), New Marseille (for Mesquites), Argent (for French), Inca (for Incas), Quechua (for Quechua), and Aymara (for Aymara).

Yonglu continue expanding until they begin bordering the Uluru Empire. This causes concerns among the Uluru.

Prince Konstantin of Russia returns. He just went out for a drink with his friends and got completely wasted. Royalists are dismayed.

The Russian puppet in Cilicia is poisoned to death by his advisors as he is perceived to be an outsider. He is replaced with an Armenian cousin of the Pontus royals.

Sven Hardrada finds it impossible to rule in Bremen, as he doesn't speak the language or observe the local religion. He is greatly distrusted by all and the local clergy organize opposition to him. As he cracks down on the populace to tighten his grip, his forceful actions turn more of the people against him.

Oskar Haroldson takes advantage of Sven Hardrada's absence from the country to align with anti-Hardrada nobles against Sven's brother. They band together to remove him from power, so he flees to Bremen with his men to join Sven.

  • Belkan Federation: The Federation after its crushing victories over Austria and the combined HRE states outside of Prague establishes full dominion over these states effectively turning them into client states. Austria is seperated from Bavaria which are both reorganized as republican kingdoms (constitutional monarchies) to more effectively cooperate with the Belkan Federal system. These moves are not very popular in Austria however with nearly 500,000 Belkan soldiers spread out around Austria and their initial manpower pool effectively leveled their situation is untenable and many of the aristocrats flee or relent succumbing to the new system. With the Polish armies broken as well, the Belkan Vozdh Pear sends an envoy to the Russians to solidify a standing alliance (Orwell plz). Later in the year the Kingdom of Austria, Kingdom of Bavaria, and Czech Federation are all solidified under pro-belkan governments. Petars cousin Borislav is granted control of Austria laying claim via a marriage to a lesser habsburg princess, and the Kingdom of Bavaria is turned over to a grateful noble, from a rising family of Von Staufenberg which are given the kingdom title of Bavaria. The Czech Federation is modeled more along Belkas and Russias governments electing a Vozdh, a national congress and judges. The reorganization is popular among the liberal Czechs who after decades of supression and issues under German speakers join in an official capacity as an ally into Belkas sphere. At the homefront the victory over much of the southern HRE leaves a sense of Shock and awe however fanfare follows shortly thereafter with celebrations. the 450,000 strong Second Field Army returns home to a grand Parade wherever they split off armies. From Trieste, to Vasiligrad there are massive parades and as a result of nearly half a million men returning home a baby boom occurs with many of these men taking wives at home as triumphant heroes. at home many of the Russian musics take hold and grow in popularity with a popular Belkan variety of multiple russian musics coming ahead. A newspaper chronicles the South German Campaign greatly with many great paintings being commisioned. Austria was famously defeated utterly in 2 years, while a Combined HRE force was obliterated in just 23 days in Bohemia. Belka officially accepts Augsburg alliance having concluded its South Germany campaign. Belka also begins heavily pushing for the breakup of the Holy Roman Empire.
    • Czech Federation: The Czech Federation officially holds its first elections, bringing Milan Capec as the Vozdh of Czechia he implements many of the liberal reforms that are observed in Belka including theoretically freedom of Press but due to the hostility in the air this is dubious and almost unobserved. The People finally being free from Germany dominion seem unawares that Milan acts with directions from Belgrad however this is not an issue as a sense of revenge takes hold and a predominant view around the country taking hold is that the Holy Roman Empire has held back the Czechs for far to long. A census is conducted to learn more about the countries demographics and also bring about a higher level of conscription ability. This brings nearly 600,000 men to bear as conscripts and orders are placed to Belka to provide arms for all 600,000 men, however as of right now only 150,000 are raised at part of the Czech Home army which will remain as the Guards over the northern borders of the alliance
    • Kingdom of Austria: Begrudingly under Belka the Austrian are forced to provide food stuffs, arms, supplies to the Belkan armies however with the vast implementation of liberal reforms many of the rank and file austrians start to change their minds and a small Belkan supported force of 50,000 is raised out of the Austrian population of roughly 5 million to act as garrisons. Borislav now acting as the constitutionally limited king seeks help from his Cousin Petar in implementing a Pro Belka Policy in Austria and in surprise to placate the nobility a claim to Trento on the Italian league is backed if only for the placation benefits.
    • Kingdom of Bavaria: Finally free after centuries under Austria, the Bavarians establish themselves as a kingdom once again in Munich. However with a small population of only a few million (roughly 2.2) the Bavarians realize their dependency on the Belkans. The Von Staufenberg family realizes this and signs a series of deals with Belkan arms dealers to supply the army and even imports Belkan officers to handle the fact of the future that will be War in Germany. The Bavarians officially begin a withdrawl from the HRE and gravitate towards more open european politics. They also handily begin raising almost 100,000 troops but this year only 50,000 are ready with the the Demand exceeding supply on the Belkan side.
    • Greek Confederation: The Greek confederation continues to occupy new territories within the recently conquered lands in the west of rum. many in the west were already orthodox or greek and are handily integrated. Garrisons up to Ankara are however much harder to deal with but the Greek Forces are able to defeat the marginal resistiance and begin their own wave of oppression on the Turks as they begin to exploit, occupy, and settle the newly taken territory.
    • Papal Dip: Pope Innocent, respecting and having no particular opinion of Belka's gains in Germany, humbly reminds the Belkans that Southern Germany and Bohemia fall under the authority of the Latin Rite of the universal Church, and thus asks that the ancient rights of the Latin Catholics in those areas be recognised. 
  • Papal States: Having been forced to sign the Treaty of Trent after the disastrous war against Italy, Pope Innocent IX is glad for King Henrique of Iberia's offer of an alliance, and gratefully accepts. The Vicar General of Rome and the Secretary of State see the defeat as an opportunity, and push for the implementation of their vision for a national parliament on the Neoscholastic, Kantian model. Glad for a distraction from the defeat, the Pope agrees to the project. Following the Neoscholastic doctrines of the late Father Kant, the Parlamento will be made up of representatives of the clergy, nobility, gentry, peasantry, guilds, and banks. Thus the Parlamento will be a true collaboration of the various estates and classes. It will be a year or more until the various estates are able to select their representtives, but once it is established, the aim is that the Parlamento will advise the Secretary of State (who will sit as President of the assembly) on the temporal government of the States. Missions continue, especially in the now-open Zulu terrotiry. Whatever effort can be spared (given the economic climate) is sent to Mzerka, including financing and technical assistance, in an attempt to ensure Catholicism remains preeminent in that loyal kingdom.      
  • Russia: Tuvov expands 10px west along the coast. Novoruthenia expands 10px along the Aleut Peninsula Coast. Savinkov agrees to strengthen the Russo-Belkan Alliance. Savinkov in his mid-50s starts to grow old. In a statement to the Duma (National Party controlled still), Savinkov shocks the Duma by announcing his successor to be Prince Konstantin Rurik as the leader of the nation. The troops fan out and occupy the remainder of Poland, annexing it into Russia. General Romanov declares himself governor of Occupied Poland and promises to sit on the former nation for 10 years until all resistance is gone. Captain Gorbachev continues his mapping of the western seaboard. A saying starts going around the nation called "Remove Kebab", the term is unknown but it generally points back to the days of the Great Turkish War and the short Rumese-Pontic War. A song is made from a group of Soldiers stationed in Cilicia called "God is a Christian." Erik Zhilov starts touring Siberia after a gig in Central Vostok Province.
    • Cilicia: De-Islamization continues or as the troops jokingly call it, Kebab Removal. Prince Tigranes takes the throne as King of Cilicia. The National Council votes to adopt a system like Ethiopia which separates Christian and Muslim populations. The National Defense Act is passed to coordinate with Russian troops in the country with the newly formed Cilician army of 30,000 currently unprofessional soldiers.
  • Deccan Mahrajya|Dravidia: The nation, whoever be its ruler shall now be known by the foreigners as Dravidia. The martial art form of Kalariyapayattu increases in popularity as a result of it being patronized by the rich merchants of Kerala and the Kollam School of Arts. Soon the craze for martial arts spreads throughout the country with local martial art forms being revived. With the spread of Kalaripayattu, Kalari schools are established in many areas and this starts the gradual revival of the Gurukula education system. Gurukula  is a type of residential schooling system with students living near or with the guru, in the same house. The gurukula's are supported by public donations. Gurukula is one of the earliest forms of public school centres. Catholic missionary activity resurfaces and the missonaries are especially active in converting tribal people and people in other isolated areas, while the people in the lower strata of Hindu society convert readily. Catholic missionary activity is camouflaged by the revival of Dravidian folk religion and intense mixing of Dravidian-Hindu religious ideas.
