- Augsburg, Bavaria - Augsburg is the capital of the one of the most prosperous, wealthiest, and diverse regions in Europe. It is the capital of Bavaro-Germany and hosts the Diet and Chancellor's residence. Since mid-century, several projects and initiatives have been launched to modernize the city.

Heavily industrialized, Hamburg blast plenty of space to house international athletes, their teams, and suitable places to build sports arenas and centers. Hamburg is also directly linked to the future main line of the trans-European railroad, allowing for easy arrivals. Because this will allow for the same country to host for 2 games in a row (in the event Hamburg won) It has been decided to take Hamburg out of the Running for the 1900 Games.

- Cuzco, Cuzco, Cuzco, Andea: Andea would like to once again put her golden City into the running for the olympics. Cuzco will undergo major development projects in the coming years and should be adequetly sized for the olympic games. Cuzco is a modern, sanitary city and would gladly host the games.
- Zurich, Switzerland - The city of Zurich, Switzerland has been a major metropolitan center for hundreds of years. As a leading global city and financial centers despite a relatively low population, the city is home to a large number of attractions and amenities. Being centrally located in Europe, unlike past Olympic venues in places such as New Munich (or the rival bid of Cusco), Zurich's location will allow much greater participation from major powers, and will therefore be a greater show of a nation's skillful athletes.
Pskov, Pskov Republic, Grand Union of Finns, Balts, and Slavs: The Great city of Pskov traces its origins to the humble hamlet of Pleskov, founded on the Velikaya river in 862. It quickly grew into a large regional center, and first became the seat of a Russian Prince, Sudislav, in 1035. The city's history was forged in commerce and war, its system of government based around the Veche, one of the oldest modern democratic systems in europe. The nation was absorbed into novgorod in 1230, but quickly gained de-facto independance after the battle of Rakvere under Prince Dovmont in 1268, and was finaly recognized as a nation in 1348 under the treaty of Bolotovo. At this point it was already a large center of trade in europe, and became a member of the hanseatic league. It became a great center of crafts, architecture, and art in eastern europe. It grew as a city, and culturally aswell, becoming the location of Eastern Europe's first true university and scientific society. The city only grew after that moment, withstanding wave after wave of invasion. After a great fire in the mid-16th century, it was rebuilt under the careful eye of Pskovian architects into the five-walled stone city we know today, becoming the first of tis kind in Russia, and soon afterwards its largest city, repulsing an invasion force of Russia, Poland, and Prussia thanks to the tactical genius of Prince Dimitri the Defender. At the heart lies the Pskov Krom, the center of power in the whole Grand Union, housing the official residence of the Supreme Prince and the meeting place of the Grand Senate's two chambers, the General Assembly, and the Council of Nations. Actin as the seat of the Russian Orthodox Church since the 18th century, the planned location of the Olympic Games offers a stunning view of Lake Pskov, into whcih the Velikaya River flows. The city will celebrate its 1050th anniversary in 1912, the olympic games will only increase the jubial atmosphere of festivities in the city, and help the world prosper in this show of international co-operation.
- city burned to the ground, shot in the back by the spaniards who swore to protect it
- Split, Ban Republic of Croatia: Founded as a Greek colony of a Greek colony of a Greek colony of Corinth, conquered by Romans and home to the palace of the Emperor Diocletian, the city combines Greek history (similarly to the Olympics), Roman architecture and history (similarly to the founders of the modern Olympic Games) and Croatian lands (exactly the same as the 1912 Olympic Games host nation). Although the Roman Empire still survives and also controls Rome once more, it is time the world is introduced to historical lands and buildings of the Roman Empire. By exploring Diocletian's Palace, the visitors of the Olympic Games will be able to indulge themselves in 4th century Roman architecture, and get to know more about the first Emperor who retired voluntarily. The sportsmen and respected guests and visitors can explore the beauty of the Croatian nature, the fresh, clean and delicious food and water as well as the mild climate that will ensure a clear sky during the games, will not being too hot to enjoy the pleasantries. The festivities will be numerous, and help connect the world in a way it has never been connected before. Vote for Split, vote for joy!
- Ludzigród, People's Republic of Poland: Initially found as the city of Warsaw in about 1300 by the Prince of Plock, Bolesław II of Masovia. In the early 1400s it became one of the seats of the Dukes of Masovia, until the early 1500s when it was reincorporated into the Polish Crown upon the extinction of the locul ducal line. King Josef Szczuka moved the capital of Poland to the former city of Warsaw in 1555 during the Reforms of Golden Liberty, establishing the General Sejm there. During the Communist Revolution of 1886 the General Sejm and Royal Palace were stormed, which was one of the most important events of the Revolution. After the Communist Revolution, the royal family was kept under house arrest in the Royal Palace, but the General Sejm was renovated and repurposed as the headquarters of the Polish Communist Party. In the new century, in the year of 1901. a tragic fire swept across the former city of Warsaw, killing over 250 people and destroying most of the city. After the fire, the former General Secretary Sokoloff died and was replaced by Iwan Sitko. Following Sokoloff's wish to rename the city, Sitko renamed the city Ludzigród, meaning People's City in Polish, declaring the city reborn. Ludzigród is quite capable of hosting the Olympic Games after its renovations were completed in 1903, with more preparations being made in the possibility of hosting the Olympics. Ludzigród would be proud to be the first communist city to host the Olympic Games.
- Barranquilla, Kingdom of Emeraldie: One of the oldest and most historic cities in Hesperia, founded by French settlers in 1657, the city arose and remains to this day the cultural hub of the nation.The city itself is an extremely diverse place, filled with many different peoples from around the globe (Afro-Emeraldians, Natives, European decendents and Indo-Emeraldians to name a few), this has lead to Barranquilla becoming an extremely diverse place, with a wide varity of culture, architectural styles and culinary delights existing in the city. Currently the residence of king Francis of Emeraldie, the city is heavily infulenced by Neoclassical styles. The city is also home so several major festivals in which the entire city is engulfed in dancing and singing. In regards to the fesibility of hosting the olympic games, the nation is currently in a great economic boom, due to vastly increased industrial production and oil output (though these industries are no way near Barranquilla), meaning that Emeraldie is more than capable of hosting the olympic games. Berranquilla itself would be honoured to become the first French city to host the olympics games and to show how Emeraldie is a modern, devolped nation
- Brussels, Netherlands - An historic city within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, being the location where the treaty was signed affirming the nation's unifcation and independence from the Holy Roman Empire, Brussels continues to distinguish itself as a center for learning and advancement in continental Europe.

Located in a central location, Brussels offers the easiest location for the European athletes.
- Cuzco, Cuzco, Cuzco, Andea: Because of the Instablity in the Netherlands, Brussels would be a poor location. With all the wars in Europe, Andea belives that Cuzco would be the best location. It is the oldest city in the new world, and the largest/most developed.

RNG Idea Edit
Since the way medals will be awarded will be by RNG, I had an idea of how to sway the RNG so the medals awarded is somewhat realistic.
The host nation of an olympiad typically does very well in terms of medals, while other powerful nations like the United States tend to do well regardless of where they are. As such, I created different levels from where the numbers would be randomly selected from.
- Host: 25-75
- Powerful/Wealthy Nation: 20-60
- Well off Nation: 15-19
- Moderate Nation: 7-14
- Small Nation: 3-6
- Tiny/Poor Nation: 0-2
I suspect the main issue may well be the number of medals within each level rather than the concept itself, however I do welcome feedback regarding the concept and implimentation.
What category does India fall in? In any case, RNG seems like a good way to do it but I'd like to add in that talent maintains a key role in Olympiad and the 'tier' of a nation should not significantly affect the medals won. For example, in the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Norway won 26 medals whereas France won 15 medals. Hence, it would be incorrect to obtain medals solely based off the 'Tier' which one nation belongs to. Perhaps, add something to it to make up for the tiers.
True, although in that case that's because Sochi was a winter olympiad, where Norway obviously has better talent compared to France. I suppose we can make the tiers a combination of both talent regarding the sports and power as an actual country.
Request Admittance Edit
The Grand Union of Finns, Balts and Slavs (Pskov, Eesti, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarussia) requests the right to join either as a single unit, or as each constituent republic. Being able to send seperate teams for each republic (i.e. competing seperately), but having a single collective vote in the comittee is also acceptable.-Lx (leave me a message) 02:42, June 7, 2015 (UTC)
One nation, one vote, one team.
Because you're small, just got out of a war, and as in OTL the games are not that interesting right now and need to grow before the entire world can join. Wait a game or two and then you should be good.
Algonquia requests admittance, given that both of its neighbours participated in the last games, and its reasonable to expect that they would be fairly well known and somewhat popular. Shikata ga nai! 21:20, June 8, 2015 (UTC)
The Kingdom of Morocco requests admittance for all games after 1896.
The Empire of Lanka requests admittance to all games after 1896, starting with the 1900 Olympic Games.04:02, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
Ruthenia requests admittance to all games beginning with 1900. Yank 01:41, June 13, 2015 (UTC)
The vast majority of you are not able to attend because it's in Borealia, which is essentially off limites for all not major. If the location is in Europe again for the next game, you all should be able to partake.
About New MunichEdit
Not sure how many people considered this, but since the Olympics are being held in New Munich that means almost no one should go. The 1904 Olympics were held in St. Louis, an area far closer to Europe than New Munich, and only a handful of athletes outside North America attended. For example France's participation in the Olympics between St. Louis and the previous games dropped by 689 percent. Except for nations in North America, the European nations should probably send a few athletes each, meaning Borealia will win some two hundred medals by default. If anyone is curious this is primarily why I voted against New Munich. Fritzmet (talk) 17:42, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
Exactly my thoughts. Borealia will probably send a few hundred athletes, nations in the Americas will send a few dozen, and the European nations will probably send less than a dozen at most. Fritzmet (talk) 02:20, June 14, 2015 (UTC)
