The Triple Alliance of the Federated People's Republics of Great Britain, Germany, and Russia (Russian: Тройственный союз Федеративного народных республик Великобритании, Германии и России, Troystvennyy soyuz Federativnogo narodnykh respublik Velikobritanii, Germanii i Rossii; German: Dreibund der Föderierten Volksrepubliken von Großbritannien, Deutschland und Russland), known colloquially as the Triple Alliance or the Big Three, is a federative Marxist-Leninist state, predominantly in the Northern Hemisphere. The economy of the Triple Alliance is primarily dominated by nominally state-owned industry, planned hierarchically through a series of worker councils, industry boards, and planning committees, subject to democratic recall at five-year intervals.

The Alliance has its roots in the unification of three different socialist states established through three independent socialist revolutions - namely in Russia, Great Britain, and Germany, leading to the overthrow, respectively, of the Russian Republic, the United Kingdom, and the German Reich, named respectively, the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, the Worker Uprising of 1917-18, and the Berlin Revolution of 1926-28. The Triple Alliance was formed through the unification between the Russian Soviet Socialist Republic, the Worker's Republic of Great Britain (established August 20, 1918), and the People's Republic of Germany (established February 19, 1928), along with their respective colonies.

During the 1930's and 1940's, tensions developed between Germany (die Deutschessektor) and Russia, as machinery assembled in Germany was perceived to be "stolen" by the Russians for use in their industrialisation programme. British sentiments were similar, as mineral deposits and timber were sent across to Russia for the development of infrastructure. By 1938, it was clear that the quality of living for British and German workers was stalling, and even deteriorating. Further divisions were linguistic - councils became dependent on translators to ensure accurate communication, leading to the development of Comiprat, a shared language. These factors lead to the Lancaster Rebellion of 1941, and convinced Joseph Stalin, then the appointed Chairman of the People's Assembly, to implement the Integrity Campaign, a propaganda campaign intended to heighten working-class consciousness.

The problem of intranational tension became subordinated to international tension, with conflicts rising between the Alliance and the United States, eventually resolved uneasily through arms agreements, although there is evidence that neither side fully complied. The Great Collectivisation, a campaign which represented an enormous line struggle, threatened to put the alliance's food supply in jeopardy in the 1940s. The collectivisation of agricultural lands eventually erupted into violence and bloodshed as peasants expropriated land en masse, causing several famines across the Central Asian territories. However, by 1944, 95% of farms had been incorporated into collective farms, despite the deaths of an estimated 550,000 landowners. During this time, Generatsiya II wheat crops and Generatsiya I corn crops were supplied by the Alliance government and planted into the soil, increasing grain production by 15% and ensuring a constant food supply. Around this time, a gradual migration of German and British workers started to occur into the quickly developing Russian hinterlands, necessitating the use of Comiprat for communication.

Vorkuta mining town

Vorkuta, TA, 1952. Buildings pictures are predominantly constructed of stalinine.

With the increase in population, throughout the 1950s a housing shortage was beginning to emerge, leading to the invention of a series of innovative construction techniques. The invention of the Kuznetsov process allowed for the cheap, energy-conservative extraction of titanium ore in the construction of high-rise apartment buildings, constructed from stalinine. The Alliance started initiatives to introduce computers into the planning process, and in the intensification of production, further heightening the role of subsidies in industry performance. The 1960s in the Alliance was also characterised by the liberalisation of social relations, the emergence of proletarian feminism as a mass movement to abolish the patriarchy and patriarchal institutions, and the accommodation of the LGBT community.

Alliance energy generation 1975

The 1960s was the so-called "green decade" of the Alliance. The Economic Inputs Survey of 1961 revealed that approximately 96% of the Alliance's electricity came from oil, coal, and natural gas reserves. With growing concerns of the environmental impact of these fuels, as well as dwindling supplies, as well as increasing transportation distances for maintaining factory growth, a referendum to use 90% renewable energy sources by 1975 was met with majority approval. It is questionable as to whether this initiative would have succeeded without the essentially chance discovery of NPZI-21, a lattice-ceramic room-temperature superconductor which allowed electricity to be transported for hundreds of thousands of miles with very little loss, in 1962, and the first successful demonstration of the Loritz tidal-farm in 1965.


Bolshevik Revolution of 1917

To be rewritten

Worker Uprising of 1917-18

The Worker Uprising of 1917-18 in England, started through the April 2, 1917 striking of coal workers in Blaenavon, in southern Wales at unfair working conditions. The needless loss of 750,000 British soldiers in the famously-misplanned Battle of Aubagne at the time affected troop morale whilst German troops relentlessly marched further through France, having redirected troops to the Western Front after the Soviet Republic of Russia successfully suing for peace on February 1917. Trade unions, during the War, had grown both in number and in power. On June 14, amidst enormous protests against the British government for continuing the War despite heavy losses, the British Trade Union Congress declared a general strike for all workers in all unions - an estimated 12 million people participated in the strike. The strike continued for almost nine days from June 14 - 22 whilst the economy crumpled in on itself and factories halted. Multiple strikes and street protests continued, unintentionally crippling the war effort, whilst these were met with violent crackdowns by the police force, which only served to aggravate tensions. Seamus Eachann's famous phrase "Blood and steel!" before his assassination of Members of Parliament Stanley Baldwin, Robert Burton-Chadwick, Charles Ainsworth and John Stanhope Arkwright, all business industrialists with anti-unionist ties, signaled the beginning of the 1918 British Civil War.

Innovation in the Alliance

Section 2

Section 2 of the First 100-Year Plan made important directives to accelerate the pace of technological innovation through heavy subsidies of new products, employment programs for convincing "overseas scientists and innovators" to work with the Triple Alliance, and enormous reforms in education. Section 2 was written with the collaboration of experts in different scientific fields who specified "promising areas" to focus innovative efforts in, primarily genetics and agriculture, construction, and transportation. Speculative additions were "machines for flexible computation" and "stimulation of the mind through chemical means". The Triple Alliance proved to pioneer in these fields: the Triple Alliance developed the first working reprogrammable computation engine by 1938, was the first to mass-produce the Dymaxion house, the Dymaxion car, and the Dymaxion train from 1939 onwards, used x-ray mutation to start creating Generatsiya I and II wheat crops in March 1940, started the manufacturing of the popular psychedelic Hoffmanine in September 1940, produced meselrecan and PVU-112, the first myalotropic substances, in 1941, identified the existence and structure of DNA by 1942, and synthesized the first restriction enzymes that would become useful for genetic engineering in 1943, developed the transistor by 1944, revolutionised the construction industry with the invention of the Kuznetsov process for rapid and inexpensive titanium ore extraction in 1945, discovered a niobium-titanium superconductor in 1946, created a graphite-based integrated circuit by 1947, and constructed the first (then) supercomputer in 1948 in Manchester.

Comiprat in the Alliance

The official language of the TAFPR is Comiprat, or more specifically Comiprat II, a constructed cross-national auxiliary language which has undergone multiple revisions over the past several decades. Comiprat was designed by the Assembly Linguistic Advisory Group in London in 1942 as an auxiliary language with flexible grammar, minimal inflections, and phonemes shared between Russian, German, and English. With an increasing number of migrations between different nation-sectors within the Alliance and resulting couples whose first languages were mutually unintelligible, by 1953, Pravda reported, approximately 15% of children had adopted Comiprat as their mother tongue. With several campaigns and the reprinting of books in Comiprat (which presented several cultural challenges due to the unique post-class nature of the language), Comiprat classes, and the introduction of Comiprat Days, where the speaking of Comiprat was mandated, the language became one of the most successful artificial languages ever created. By 1975, according to a report filed on March 1976 by the Alliance Census, 99.97% had either adopted Comiprat as their second (75% of total) or first language (25%), helped by the increasing electronic interconnection between nation-sectors.

Differences between Comiprat and natural languages

There are several particular differences between Comiprat and other natural languages. It is impossible to describe the possession or ownership of an object in Comiprat. In English, one might say "That is my pie!" while in Comiprat such a sentence would be impossible. For one, determiners indicate how far away the object is from the speaker (although much is left to context) - "dan" (close or holding), "danap" (two or three paces), and "danapo" (further away, such as pointing at a mountain or a nearby building). In Comiprat, one would have to say "That is the pie that I baked!" ("Danap len tort ko yaak baka-er") or "That is the pie which I was assigned" ("Danap len tort ko yaak asina-er") or "That is the pie which I bought!" ("Danap len tort ko yo kupa-er") . Likewise, instead of saying "this is my house", one might say "this is the house that I live in" ("danapo len dom ko yaak obita"). Canadian linguist Randall Griffith posited in Cultural Superstructure and Language (2008) that this non-possessive structure has had several impacts on Alliance culture and child raising, calling it "a masterpiece of societal control".

Almost all natural languages feature gender-distinctions of some variant, most Indo-European languages have gendered third-person pronouns, and some classify nouns in accordance with their gender as a means to disambiguate sentences. Comiprat contains no gender-distinctions - third person singular pronouns simply become "ta", which is suspected to have been borrowed from Mandarin. Names in Alliance culture usually end in a vowel sound, with little statistical correlation between sex and birth-name, and "man" and "woman" both translate into "chin". This has posed several unique challenges in machine translation, and allows interesting translations of works originally written in Comiprat, such as Eckhart Johann's "Chin, ta len-er usti" (1955), a 75-page science-fiction novella whose English translation ("The Person, They Were Strong") won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, partly due to its literal word translation. As a result, so-called "classless literature" became an established genre, with authors mimicking the unusual sentence constructions and genderless pronouns which Comiprat is characterised by.
