Discussion

Concerning India

The Treaty seems all right. However, there are particular demands of the Treaty that are implausible and can not exist on historical basis.

  • The Kingdom of the Punjab will be established around the Sikh homeland areas of the Punjab and Indus regions. This country will be occupied by the Roman Empire for a period of 15 years to establish a competent government as well as train the new nation's military.

It should be important to note that whilst Sikhism is entered around Punjab, the Sikhs historically were a minority in Punjab. Hence, a Sikh state in Punjab can not really exist unless the Roman Empire plans on genociding and expelling the entire Muslim populace to supposedly facilitate the creation of a Sikh state. Doing so would naturally result in rebellions and start insurgencies which under plausible circumstances would succeed. Basically, a Sikh state can not exist in a long run as its birth would be marred with violence and its economy would naturally collapse. The Sikhs represent less than 10% of the population for Punjab. If anything, create a Punjab state over a 'Sikh state'. The former would actually make sense. Dividing India culturally, instead of religiously.

  • The Andaman Islands will be confirmed as Borealian territory. A military and rocket base will be given to Borealia in the Maldives, which will be part of Dravidia.

The islands of Maldives are not culturally, religiously, linguistically or ethnically similar to Dravidia. Hence, it would lack any sense for Maldives to be handed over to the nation of Dravidia.

  • The capital of the Empire of India will be moved from Calcutta to Delhi.

The decision lacks any sense no matter how one looks at it. Calcutta has been developed as an international economic centre, and a major port in Asia. It has also been the administrative capital of India for at least a 100 years. In comparison, Delhi has not served as an administrative capital since it was briefly held by the Mughals in 1400s. After that, the city of Delhi remained part of Jaunpur albeit not as their capital. Following that, it was held by the Suris in 1700s who however had their capital in Kabul. Hence, Delhi isn't an administrative centre capable of holding together India. It is no more than a rotting city that once served as the heart of the Delhi Sultanate.

  • The Timurids will return to take the throne of the Empire of India.

The Timurids have no claim to India, and would under no circumstances be accepted by the Indian populace. The Timurids and their Mughal descendants fled to Eire and later Croatia when they were defeated in 1500s, and that is when the Timurid chapter in India was closed. They have no supporter base and have absolutely no importance. Appointing Timurids as Monarchs for India would be no different than a Palaiologos being appointed as ruler for Turkey after WWI.

What about Australia in the Indian bit? ~ AH28

I agree with Rimp here. I propose the following changes (which he agrees with me on chat):

  • Cede the Maldives to Borealia
  • Keep the royal family of India the same
  • Keep Punjab as part of India Kingdom of Punjab is still a thing, but not Sikh.
  • Move the capital to Mahmudpur instead of Delhi.

Concerning the Caliphate

France would like to be given control of Somalia, as this nation will most likely fall into piracy.

I don't think Mecca would be a great capital. Maybe Riyadh or Jeddah or Dubai or something would be better.

Riyadh would not be the capital, because it would've been an underdeveloped or most likely a non-existent state in Central Arabia. The same is to be said about Dubai.             Reichsadler der Deutsches Reich (1933–1945)   The night is dark and full of terrors. 

Concerning Germany

I'm fine with all the territorial cessions of Germany. However, I'm irked by the financial and some of the political provisions.

First, why is the German treasury being partitioned and cut up when Germany itself is remaining a united, unbroken country? I talked to MP about it, and he just said that's what people told him.

Secondly, I can live with a governmental dissolution and a new one taking its place, but a monarchy? Why? Why put in place a monarchy when most of the nations fighting me, most prominently Republican France, are non-monarchies?

Thirdly, I don't really trust any of the major powers to occupy German territory without pulling something shifty. Thank Spar for this post on Fritz's talk page, asking to annex the part of German territory he would be occupying.

Finally, I think the post-war occupation period is too long. I'm fine with ten years, but 15 is too long. Again I am still highly untrustworthy of any of the occupying powers not sticking by their word and acting wholly implausible and/or break the rules. I'm also curious as to why Germany must join the Holy League. If it's assurance that Germany won't be subjected to implausible, meta-gaming, gang bang wars, I'm fine with it, but if it's for any other reason, I'm wary.

Those are all my grievances, and I'm much more pleased with this Treaty rather than the implausible, "let's cut up Germany because the mods are inactive" Geneva Treaty. I was Normandy in PM2. It was great. (talk) 22:12, August 9, 2015 (UTC)

I'd like some land for Algonquia, considering I was involved and contributed to a fair degree. I'm not sure why this was changed from the previous treaty. ᐊ ᒋᐟᕀ ᐃᐣ ᕒuᐢᓯᐊ 22:29, August 9, 2015 (UTC)

What is the point of making a second treaty about Germany? Most of the terms on here are already on the Treaty of Geneva. Also if it's any consolation, Cookie, I disregarded that message from Spar and didn't put it into the treaty for a reason. And meanwhile people complain that I tried to "make everyone Brazil's bitch" with the first treaty, when this one makes Germany join the Roman sphere basically. Also, why is the proposed cold war with Japan and not Rome, come to think of it? Fritzmet (talk) 22:32, August 9, 2015 (UTC)

The first treaty was absolutely ridiculous and Crim, Sine, Sky, and MP have all said on Facebook (oh wait, Edge proclaimed that Facebook isn't a "valid" means of communication) that Geneva was not a suitable treaty at all. Considering that Britannia, Russia and possibly Silesia and Poland have been retconned, as well as numerous other problems with the algos, a new treaty is a better solution. And Fritz, I'm wary of the Roman sphere business as well. I was Normandy in PM2. It was great. (talk) 22:41, August 9, 2015 (UTC)

Why didn't the Netherlands get any lands?~Tao64

France demands control of it's zone of occupation as a part of France itself. It also demands colonies in Kuba and Belize.

Andea rejects any treaty that doesn't have Kuba and Belize as free nations. Andea also proclaims that it will protect these new nations with our blood.

Out of character, Cookie, As I have said, those nations don't change the fact that Germany collapses.  And Andea also rejected Geneva. #PraiseRoosevelt. 18:40, August 10, 2015 (UTC)

Kuba and Belize are certainly going independent after the war, and France's demands are wholly unrealistic and not supported by any member of the treaty (or so I assume). I was Normandy in PM2. It was great. (talk) 19:13, August 10, 2015 (UTC)

Personally, I'm happy to let Oldenburg retain Svalbard and Greenland; I'd much rather take Neu Norderney and Neu Juist, which are geographically attached to my nation and were the areas I actually invaded during the war. ᐊ ᒋᐟᕀ ᐃᐣ ᕒuᐢᓯᐊ 22:50, August 10, 2015 (UTC)

Neu Norderney is an essentially homogeneous Germanic state, which simply would not fit within Algonquia, and really should be independent. Neu Juist (which is essentially entirely made up of the Beothuk Autonomous Territory), on the other hand, is ripe for an Algonquian annexation. The Arctic/Atlantic territories, whilst homogeneously Germanic, have minuscule populations and could be easily integrated. On a personal note, I would like to play as NN for the remainder of the game if I could (which, I know, is a meta reason). Callumthered (talk) 02:17, August 11, 2015 (UTC)

You bring up good points, although after a world war not much can deter a major belligerent from annexing neighboring territory. I'm not against letting you play as Neu Norderney, and I don't think that's necessarily meta. Whether independent or part of Algonquin, perhaps Kras would let you play as it. Fritzmet (talk) 02:32, August 11, 2015 (UTC)

Just going to point out that despite what Guy may want, Kuba and Belize are going to be separated most likely. I am personally not against keeping them united, but the plan discussed had them going separate. Also, I'm pretty sure that Kuba and Belize are joining Second Hesperian League, but that might not be true. #PraiseRoosevelt.

So my preferences with regard to Germany's Borealian territories are as follows: Neu Juist, Svalbard and Greenland annexed by Algonquia, Neu Norderney demilitarized, joins the UBH, and accepts a republican form of government with seats in its parliament reserved for natives and Algonquian oversight of its foreign affairs and treatment of its native population. ᐊ ᒋᐟᕀ ᐃᐣ ᕒuᐢᓯᐊ 23:54, August 12, 2015 (UTC)

  • Neu Norderney has had those provisions for natives, plus an autonomous province, for quite a while now. I am that guy (talk) 23:57, August 12, 2015 (UTC)
  • Yes, as I've said, you can have Neu Juist, Svalbard, and Greenland. I am willing to demilitarise, to an extent; all I ask is for token armed forces for ceremonial, border protection, and natural disaster duties (and taking part in peacekeeping for the UN eventually). The parliament, as Guy has pointed out, has already had such seats since the Beothuk crisis. NN even has separate traditional tribal courts for any native charged with any crime. Therefore, I naturally accept that condition, since it's already been fulfilled. The one thing I will not accept is republican government. The Lord has been a part of NN since its founding way back in the 1500s. It is a constitutional monarchy anyway, but I am willing to further weaken his status by following the lead of Japan after WWII otl, by giving him next to no power (even reserve powers). I am also willing for Conrad IX to abdicate in favour of his young son Conrad X. To be honest though, the republican thing doesn't make that much sense as a request, since the Lord of NN played no role in starting the war. Callumthered (talk) 01:30, August 13, 2015 (UTC)

Let's clarify what I want here. You surrendered and are presumably occupied. Neu Norderney is the most significant strategic threat to Algonquia, as an independent and unfriendly nation close to its major population centres. I'm not going to let a government and set of leaders who just led a war against Algonquia remain in power - Neu Norderney needs to be neutralized as a threat for the conceivable future. That means significant limits on its freedom of action. The key points are that Algonquia gets oversight of Neu Norderney's foreign policy and, to prevent reprisals for the war, treatment of its native population. By demilitarized, I was mainly referring to a guarantee that foreign troops wouldn't be allowed into Neu Norderney without Algonquian consent. ᐊ ᒋᐟᕀ ᐃᐣ ᕒuᐢᓯᐊ 15:39, August 13, 2015 (UTC)

I would hardly say Neu Norderney is a threat to Algonquia on its own, that just sounds paranoid. Second of all, Neu Norderney didn't lead the war, Cal's the most innocent person present. Thirdly, you were the one who declared war on Neu Norderney, Kras, not vice versa. All us German players have wanted with the new world players is peaceful coexistence. We haven't sought expansion in any way in the new world for 150 years (and the last expansion of any kind was my purchase of Kuba from Britannia). Cal isn't a threat to you, Kras, and he sure as hell doesn't deserve to be turned into a vassal, especially not when he's complied with all your requests regarding treatment of natives. I am that guy (talk)

That's true, Kras, you do need to get your facts right on who declared war on (and invaded!) whom. And also, how am I an unfriendly nation? I have been nothing but accommodating with you since the beginning. When you (let's be honest here) made up a native uprising for your own political gain, I played ball, giving the natives more rights than in any otl nation I think ever. When WWII broke out, I made it clear I had no negative intentions towards you (little use that was but still). All I ask is to be able to live out my last fifty-odd days in the game as an independent NN. And if in-game it's the leaders who a problem, as I've said, Conrad IX can abdicate in favour of his son. Heck, the entire wartime government could be sacked. That would achieve the requisite getting rid of the wartime leaders. And really, if it's insurance for reprisals against you for the war you need (a need no doubt driven by your guilty conscience, which can not forgive you for invading a peaceful and friendly neighbour ;) ), you can rest easy, in any algo NN would be crushed (not to mention the fact it's been made to join the UBH, which presumably has some sort of collective security clause). Tell you what though, as a gesture to show I'm genuine about wanting peaceful cooperation, how about if I ever seem to be making a treaty, etc., which you deem to be a threat to your national security, just chuck me a diplomacy in-game and we'll sort it out. Deal? Callumthered (talk) 20:35, August 13, 2015 (UTC)

I've never denied being the aggressor in this war (or generally trying to infringe on Neu Norderney's territory and sovereignty over the past hundred years). It's all part of the native revanchist thing. To be fair, I only declared war once I saw Germany was obviously being toppled so I could grab some choice bits of Oldenburg. But my main concern is ensuring that Neu Norderney isn't used as a base for attacking Algonquia by foreign powers (say, a resurgent and angry Germany), and that it doesn't start killing its native population as potential fifth columnists. If you can provide me with guarantees ensuring that that will be the case, we've got a deal. I don't feel it necessary that any abdication happen, since the Lord is, as you said, a figurehead; the civilian government, on the other hand, I would prefer to be replaced, since it led the country during the war. ᐊ ᒋᐟᕀ ᐃᐣ ᕒuᐢᓯᐊ 20:46, August 13, 2015 (UTC)

Deal. I will absolutely guarantee that I will never allow either of those things to happen. I'll also make the Lord abdicate in favour of his son, and we can sign a perpetual non-aggression pact as well. I look forward to the start of a peaceful and fruitful relationship with Algonquia!
