Japan

Land of the Rising Sun

 

The world had fallen into chaos, absolute chaos. Japan now alone in the Pacific, without the USA Japan would have to change their way of handling things. First step was to solidify relations with other East Asian countries.

 

Foreign Affairs

 

The Japanese Government has struck trade agreements with the Governments of the Congo, Chile, Brazil, and Tanzania allowing it to secure a flow of resources and continued access to goods. All other Countries are given a slight apology should they have wished for primary trade with Japan, they simply cannot handle more at this time.

 

Internal Affairs

 

With the collapse of order being absolutely apparent across the world, Prime Minister Kane pushes for Parliament to serious consider Article 9 for reform or to be removed altogether. This wouldn’t be pushed with an immediate answer but instead claiming it is best to watch the world in the coming years and be ever vigilant of other nations whom may look upon Japan as a target with the US now gone. (MOD)

 

The Japanese Government decides to begin heavily investing in its industry, factories, production, to help create more jobs for its citizens. An early investment to allow Japan to be more Economically capable of defending the nation, should the need ever arise. (5 AP Civilian Investment)

Nigeria

To unite the various bickering factions of Muslims in Nigeria had been no small feat, especially considering a great many were verging on militancy. However, Usman ibn Foduye has managed to do it, bringing together a number of Sunni tribes that previously were bitterly opposed, as well as defusing the somewhat precarious situation in Nigeria by steering his new 'flock' to a more moderate path. Still, while some of the Christian population supported Foduye out of gratitude, many more were opposed and fearful of the power he wielded with the collective support of an almost completely united Muslim population, and as a result there remained tension between the two faiths of the book, much to Foduye's lament. 

 

He saw the one of the best ways to unite the Christians and Muslims into placing their Nigerian, African identity above that of their religion was to remove the cause to make scapegoats of each other: hardship. As a result, one of Foduye's great focuses for his first year as President was to try and bolster the already strong Nigerian economy even further, so that the effects of prosperity could be felt not just by urban elites, but by the rural and poor parts of the populace as well. 

 

This mainly takes the form of modernising the Nigerian infrastructure and properly expanding it out into the countryside in order to begin the process of uniting the people materially that preceded the unity of purpose and identity that Foduye desired to see realised. While most in the country are too poor to afford automobiles (and therefore roads take somewhat of a backseat), rails have long been a means to expedite transport of goods and people cheaply. At the moment, the railways in Nigeria only really connect the largest of cities, and so the Nigerian government begins investing in the creation of a more interlinked and extensive network that could reach every city and many of the larger towns in Nigeria, as well as improving the quality of current stations and tracks. [4AP]

 

Nigeria-tren_1959681_futurerail_jpeg524d

 

In a somewhat less secular and more clandestine fashion, Foduye also begins increasing funding given toward Mosques throughout the nation that routinely perform charity work (such as providing education, essential supplies to those who need it, and childcare) in their communities, as well as creating more Muslim places of worship in majority Christian areas, which in turn would also perform charity work. The aim being to increase conversion to Islam in these communities through philanthropy, or at the very least facilitating a better opinion of Muslims and Islam in the eyes of Nigeria's Christians. [1AP]

 

In terms of foreign affairs, closer trade relations are established with Egypt, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, and Brazil. In the other ECOWAS nations, a survey is done under the name of a newly started survey group in order to gauge the level of support for West African unification and Nigeria as their neighbour in general.

Korean Republic

latest?cb=20140523071427

 

Korea had been at war since 1950. Its people had slowly drifted apart, til they were almost distinct. Height, weight class, language. Everything had changed over those long 70 years. Now, however, the time for reunification had passed, and Korea could once again call itself a single nation.

 

The fervor for updating the North has just begun. Almost all governmental funds not invested in infrastructure upkeep or current projects is put into the North - giving it the boost it so desperately needs. Academies updated to modern standards, hospitals built and roads paved. Dozens of new projects to employ those wallowing many that had been under the sole of the destructive Kim regime. Initiatives across South Korea to help the North begin, even as trains and cars cross the border for civilian use for the first time in generations. Those aging veterans of that war so long ago, and those that had been separated by the enormous wall communism had become, finally saw their families once again. Lovers, siblings, cousins. [5 AP to NORTHERN UPDATING]

 

The road to a brighter future had been started upon, but more steps were required.

 

Trade deals with Indonesia, Spain, Syria and Taiwan are accepted. "For the benefit of our industries and peoples alike," notes President Park.

 

Even as the country comes together, some politicians, most far-right, begin anti-Japanese speeches. "For decades they oppressed us. For decades they raped our daughters, murdered our husbands, burned our lands. There is yet to be recompense. All of Asia has felt the pain caused by them, yet America spared them the righteous justice of the billions wronged. Even now they seek to rebuild their military by revoking Article 9 of their Constitution, which has so long been a central point in the peaceful governance of trade and relations between Japan and the rest of Asia. There must, and will, be consequences!" A fervor begins to spread in the lowest echelons, it seems.

          As the world went on, and technologies advanced, New Zealand was slowly falling behind. Their friend and ally Australia passing them in now not only military power but also having a large technological advantage. New Zealand tried to keep up, cutting down their many rainforests and using it for fuel. Taking the exotic animals and auctioning them off to the highest bidder. New Zealanders tried and tried to remove the men in power, though they had already monopolized their government. Slowly citizens left, and they're spots were filled by men ready to work. New Zealand became a hub of work for men across the world, slowly they built great cities and towns across the country. 

         Now business tycoons from across the globe saw the opportunity in New Zealand, slowly they moved their businesses they're. Eventually moving technology departments and investing millions of dollars so people would want to work there. The now Trade Federation would elect a leader for their group. This man would be David Matteos, he owned no company of his own. Instead he had slowly befriended the tycoons, rising to power amongst the Federation.

          Though David was no fool, he knew that space was the future. And he knew the way to do it was by striking deals. So that's exactly what he did. Now in the current year David sends out early alliance deals towards three different countries. These countries being Canada, Australia and Chile.  The details of this alliance, known as ZACC. Would be fleshed out in detail in top secret meetings held in New Zealand.

          Now as his second act David would immediately begin production on a top secret project known as the WHITE FEATHER PROJECT. New Zealand would invest a lot into this project, putting a large amount of manpower into the gathering of rocket fuel and materials for a large missile weapon? ((DO NOT META THIS, Please

           As his third act David would invest in advancing his schools. Allowing the children of wealthy tycoons and hard labor workers to lead a greater future for New Zealand. This might attract more people to come work for New Zealand, a better life for their kids. David knew that this 'waste' of money might anger the tycoons. And to appease them he told them some random, unnecessary details of the WHITE FEATHER PROJECT. This calmed down the Tycoons, allowing David to rest.

           As David's fourth and final act for the time being he would declare a public militia. Many people from across the country, mainly workers, would sign up for the militia. As time passed around 15% of the population would be armed with crude firearms, ranging from handguns to sidearms. The citizens would have to fill out a form and would agree to having Cameras put in their home for 'safety.'

2021 - The Year in Review
- A note for all, trade deals do not take effect until AFTER this turn. Everybody will grow the same from 2021 to 2022 at $20 Billion.
 

United Kingdom
The attempted Moroccan intervention produces a long series of largely inconsequential peace talks with neither side moving any closer toward peace than prior to British intervention. Indeed, the efforts made by the British prove rather futile as the men with whom they attempt to reason do not cease in their war crimes nor change their tactics. This is what works for those people, and simply establish the “British way” on them will not do the Moroccans any good. No peace occurs in that conflict.

By promoting the London Stock Exchange and encouraging its people to have confidence in British markets, (it's insensible to… invest in a stock exchange as a body, but I’m going to frame this as you trying to encourage confidence in the markets) the market sees a small but steady increase in participation by the average citizen. Consumer confidence is still at an all-time low in the West as a whole though, and many private citizens are hesitant to put their money into the markets, especially after the volatility of the last five years and a general distrust in those markets. [+4 toward Growth]

The “Sea-Hawk” Drone. [Discuss with me the specifications of the weapon in Skype, please]


al-Jumhūrīyah al-Lubnānīyah
The Economic Stimulation and Recovery Bill’s early effects prove significant, initiating a large series of public works that put many Lebanese to work. As is intended, it also helps put a lot of refugee labor to work, however the question of feeding and housing these refugees quickly arises as they are put to work without any real means of doing either of the listed necessities. Though more investment is required, small infrastructural projects begin to take shape. It will be a long road to modernization, but the current regime is taking the proper steps forward. [+2 toward Growth]

In response to the National Security Bill, Hezbollah and other Islamist groups lash out severely. They take dozens of hostages, including a number of Parliamentary officials, and quickly rile up dozens of smaller Islamist militias into one united front. Hezbollah begins widespread acts of terror, killing hundreds in the course of the year. This campaign of terror strikes fear into the hearts of the Lebanese people, but also diminishes the average citizen’s desire to sympathize with them. Should the Lebanese continue to act out decisively against them, this enemy could eventually be crushed - given they do not receive any further outside support. [More AP required to achieve goal]

The effectiveness of the Military Review Bill does not reveal itself by the end of 2021, however the push to decrease the size but increase the competence of the army does come to pass. Successfully establishing a fighting force of 70,000 with 26,000 in reserve, the Lebanese put themselves in a much better and more economical position to modernize their army. A large amount of investment will be required though to bring these men to the fighting competence of Israel, France, or the UK though.  [More AP required to achieve goal]

A noble cause, the Butler Act proves to be one of the most ambitious but virtuous of actions undertaken by the new Lebanese government. By the end of the year 2021, most of the framework of a core-curriculum has been established by a broad council of teaching professionals across Lebanon. About 1/4th of the desired schools have entered or finished construction as well. Though it will definitely require more investment, perhaps even more than the Lebanese government plans, the eventual payoff will be significant. [+1 toward Growth, requires more investment which has been accounted for]

 

Contact me for the results of that Catholic/Papal thing you want to do, I need more information and I’m not clear on exactly what you want done. [Skype]

Russia
Tax reform in Russia proves somewhat successful, with more taxes being netted than prior to reforms however a shift of money overseas to avoid those taxes is commonplace among the most wealthy of oligarchs who wish to shelter their wealth from the government. The plan to force foreign companies to co-operate with locals proves rather disastrous though for, while most companies stay, several larger businesses that once looked into investing in Russia cancel their agreements, preferring to move elsewhere where they do not need to distribute their wealth among the population [+0 toward Growth, Tax reforms hurt more than help]

Investments striving toward modernization begin in the chain of command with several new regulations for both enlisted and officers occurring. This takes place chiefly within the Navy though, given that the land forces of Russia are rather well-practiced and competent [You’ll have to contact me on skype, simply “modernization” is too broad. Next post, focus more specifically on what thing ie. equipment, weapons systems, etc, you’re modernizing/improving/researching].

Most Russians seem very disenchanted with the Putinist regime, and after the Tax Reforms of 2021, even more people are upset. This deal drove businesses out of Russia and lost potentially hundreds of jobs for otherwise unemployed Russian people. The people are demanding a new election and Putin appears incredibly unpopular, a position in stark contrast from the stranglehold he seemed to command only a few years earlier.

The Chinese Government proves rather disinterested in re-asserting the relationship, seeing as it is rather dated and global circumstances has changed significantly. Indeed, the Chinese appear almost openly hostile toward the Russians politically.

This discontent with the Russians by the Chinese government is only emphasized when they make the ultimatum to Kazakhstan, who immediately requests Chinese intervention. Both India and China mobilize their militaries and warn Russia that any move into Kazakhstan will result in intervention by both nations. Neither wishes to have a Russia expanding into their spheres of influence in central Asia. The United States also voices its discontent with the move, but makes no overt military threat as do China and India.


The Greater Republic of Congo
The rather sweeping reforms initiated by the N’Golo government prove rather ambitious and will take several years to come to fruition however the people certainly do possess a hope in this new leader uncommon among many other African nations. The people are captivated by the words (or propaganda) of N’Golo, and his speeches inspire the hopes of millions. Despite these facts though, very few Congolese abroad feel inspired to return to their home as they now live comfortable lives aboard. Notably though, a small group of engineers based out of the United States and several professors from smaller universities return home. They both wish to improve the nation through their specific skillsets, and offer humbly to not be paid so exorbitantly, only to be given the resources needed to live comfortably and complete their work.

Talks with the Chinese begin by the end of 2021. [Encounter, Skype]

Project UFUFUO, like the many other programs N’Golo and his government wish to bring into being, proves incredibly ambitious and will require a long, steady supply of resources to carry out. By the end of the year, only a fraction of the new roads have been constructed, electricity only really remains prevalent in the larger cities and backwaters, for the most part, remain without power. Hospitals are built, but staffing them requires an incredible amount of time and a whole re-education of a large portion of the populace. Education sees the most improvement, with a core-curriculum established and dozens of new schools sprouting up. Foreigners and foreign charity help especially in these sector as many willingly submit to curriculum changes and take part in teaching them. The specialists who go to the countryside to address the more… undesirable aspects of the culture of the Congolese people face stiff resistance, including some deaths, as these people are incredibly fixed in their mores. More effort will be required in that sector, and a widespread cultural revolution is likely needed. [+4 toward Growth]

By the end of 2021, most of the blood-diamond facilities are eradicated, however with their eradication comes the eradication of their revenue. The Congolese government loses millions of dollars in valuable revenue by acting morally, and by the end of the year very few facilities have been replaced with legal operations. This will require more investment and more time to produce results [-1 toward Growth, lost revenue].


Syria
The Syrian investments in improving their air power prove somewhat successful. Since the research is largely focused on acquiring a bomber on par with the B-52 Stratofortress, the Syrians seem at least… realistic. By the end of the year, the Syrians have researched a bomber aircraft capable of achieving about 2/3rds of the range of that bomber but lacking most of the complex computer systems that make the American counterpart so effective.

The first step toward improving the Syrian economy is improving its infrastructure that has been devastated by the Civil War. By the end of the year, most critical infrastructure has been restored. Critical infrastructure being defined as roads and bridges. Aleppo is still essentially just a pile of rubble, as is Raqqa and several other cities closer to the Iraqi border. [+1 toward Growth]


Egypt
The overt threats made toward Israel are met with a widespread amount of discontent among the Egyptian populace as a whole. The Egyptian people are tired of conflict, and after several years of difficulty, they condemn the government for trying to incite war against Israel. If the government continues to pursue this road, they may find themselves in trouble with the people, who would prefer the status quo.

What the people do not resent though are the government’s efforts to improve critical infrastructure and manufacturing. [Not sure what manufacturing you’re bringing in, so specify if you continue doing it]. [+2 toward Growth]

Research toward a new tech begins [Contact me on Skype to discuss what you’re researching].


Deutsches Kaiserreich
The rearmament program instituted by the Kaiser and his government goes over rather poorly. In a post-WWII Germany, the German population is wary of fervent nationalism and the lessons of both World Wars has not escaped the minds of the Germans. An entire re-education campaign would be required to begin re-militarizing the German nation.

The institution of public works does some good, increasing the number of employed peoples in Germany. It does not prove as effective as desired though, perhaps a new mode of economic stimulus is required? [+4 to Growth]

The subsidies to increase the birth rate do excite some younger couples, and marriages are on the rise. After a year the birth rate is up, whether it stays up is another question.

Discussions begin with the mentioned neighboring states [encounters for those].


Mexico
In its most ambitious strikes ever against the cartels, the Mexican police forces and military for the first time wages what is essentially open war against the cartel. Thousands die on both sides and the fighting is excruciatingly brutal. By the end of the year, several smaller cartels have been eradicated but the larger ones that remain begin to unify, combining their assets and preparing for all out war with the Mexican government. Facing this threat would require an extreme amount of funding and military personnel, and outside observers project the death toll to be significant [-1 toward Growth].

The economic investments help gain revenue for the drug war, but its effects are somewhat stifled by the war being waged in the country [+3 toward Growth].

The suite of equipment desired by the Mexican government is certainly nothing too outlandish, and by the end of the year a new assault rifle and pistol have been made standard issue. Modern and effective, the Mexican government and Heckler & Koch reach an agreement to provide HK417s to the Mexican army. In concert with that, HK provides VP9SK pistols as well. Since HK does not manufacture Submachine guns nor Light Machine guns, a different contractor will need to be found.


The Republic of Chile
The Chilean Government finds a fair amount of success in its investment into private industry. Given the state of global affairs, arms manufacturers approve especially successful and upstart tech companies are making life somewhat easier in the countryside [+4 toward Growth].

Encounter with Bolivia [Skype].


The People's Republic of Catalonia
By the end of the year, Catalonia manages to recruit an additional 30,000 recruits toward the cause. Most of these recruits join out of fear; fear fundamental of conflict with the awoken Kingdom of Spain. 150 towed artillery guns, purchased from a manufacturer in the United States, also make their way to Catalonia by the end of the year.

Pacifying some of the voices of discontent toward the government, the public works projects prove a unifying force as the poorer populations are put to work. Those who do not join the military sign up for these public works and Catalonian nationalism increases as a result [+1 toward Growth].

 

Scandinavia

Thorium, for now, proves too unstable and scientists lack the capability to properly utilize it. However, the nuclear research has steadily become more efficient over the last year and some significant breakthroughs have been made in the realm of nuclear fusion power. It’s a step in the right direction toward making Scandinavia a much more energy efficient nation. [+3 toward Growth]

 

The investment into subsidising agricultural practice in Scandinavia goes as planned, leading to farmers expanding and improving their own crop fields and producing a markedly increased volume of crops. Similarly, the mining subsidisation facilitates the injection of more raw mineral goods into the Scandinavian markets, allowing the newly formed nordic nation to see a growth in exports. [+2 toward Growth]

 

Kingdom of Spain

The Spanish forces on the Catalan border begin their advance. [Encounter, talk to me on skype]

 

Attempts by the Spaniards to rally any unionist support in Catalonia are met with little success. The actions of the Spanish since the 2017 referendum, and efforts by the Catalan government, have resulted in the solidifying of Catalan nationalism, with few dissenters to independence left. While some would be willing, their sparseness and their inability to create an organised rebellion means almost no damage is done by the unionists in Catalonia.

 

Spanish Military Contractors begin their work on the new technology. [Contact me on Skype to discuss what you’re researching].

 

The Spanish government’s stimulus package into its economy is met with a degree of success, with local business shutdowns being prevented and Spanish corporations expanding their domestic operations considerably. While it is not enough to make a noticeably large difference in national productivity, it is certainly a start. [+4 toward Growth]

 

South Africa

Increased training and thoroughness in existing mines leads to a marked increase in the amount of chthonic wealth flowing into the South African economy, giving it quite the boost. Furthermore, the surveys and prospectors find some deposits of minerals such as copper, chromium, and aluminium, which itself leads to the mining companies who intend to mine these resources hiring more personnel and purchasing the materials necessary to exploit the new deposits. [+2 toward Growth]

Likewise, the infrastructure repairs and and expansion not only create jobs through the public works itself, but prove a slight boon to productivity and local business. [+1 toward Growth]

 

The education reach out to more rural and deprived areas of South Africa is well-received by many children and their parents who see education as the road out of poverty. Already there is a perceptible rise in literacy rates, and companies both foreign and domestic grow somewhat more optimistic at the prospect of more high-skill workers in the near future. [+2 toward growth]

 

Communist State of Cuba

The liberation of private enterprise in Cuba goes a long way in bringing growth to businesses and industry, and the concurrent investment spurs on many new startups to open up in Cuba, as well as foreign businesses beginning to establish themselves on the island. It may be some time before the effects of the tight grip of the Castros on Cuba dissipate, but this first step by the T’Oussaint premiership in bringing economic freedom to the people is met with success. [+5 toward Growth]

 

Canada

The Canadian Space Agency, while dependent on foreign launch sites, has historically had a notable role in space exploration and aerospace. The establishment of a domestic launch site piques the interest of many investors and contractors in terms of both the construction and for future operations of the CSA. [+5 toward growth]

 

Australia

Infrastructure is particularly pertinent in such a vast nation as Australia, with industries such as mining being far inland and requiring a large amount of logistical support to pursue. The government investment in this area therefore makes a marked effect on the cost of mineral extraction and transport in and across Australia, providing a notable boost to the nation’s industry, though not quite enough for a large effect on GDP growth. [+4 toward growth]

 

With Indonesia’s ambitious attacks on East Timor, Papua New Guinea, and Malaysia sparking widespread concern in Australia, the military finds no issue in sourcing new recruits. 5,000 freshly trained and equipped men join the Australian Army as amphibious warfare specialists.

 

The State of Israel

Palestine, for the moment, appears rather quiet. Indeed, most of the dissent in the region is rather open and requires no covert tactics as the Palestinians continue to push openly and appeal to outside nations in order to garner support for their independence. They continue to push for the independence of the West Bank and Gaza, as stipulated by the U.N. so long ago, nothing more.

The Israeli soldiers make their way to Lebanon, assisting the officers there significantly in training the newly reformed corps.

 

Settlements in Palestinian territory continue to stir up controversy both within Israel and without, however nothing especially notable happens while these are produced.

 

The industry and business investments approved by the Knesset help improve the Israeli economy in the short term with markets in Israel slowly but steadily increasing. Long term, more policies will be required to continue this trend of growth. [+2 toward growth]

Republic of China
A country lying in wait for its moment for almost a century now, the highly modernized and high-tech society of the Republic of China continues to grow in the year 2021. As a result of the heavy investment in their domestic industry, many local companies see record profits as consumer confidence in the region skyrockets. The technology sector especially thrives as one company in particular reports an astounding breakthrough, one of particular interest to the government [Encounter].

Portuguese Republic
All desired reforms successfully pass through the Portuguese Parliament, thanks mostly to the still large majority held by the SDP. Seeing Portugal take some steps in the right direction, the United States approves a trade deal with Portugal as an individual state and soon more American goods begin flowing into the ports of Portugal.

Economic recovery in Portugal, already looking fairly stable compared to most other European nations, begins and continues at a steady pace. By the end of the year, confidence in Portuguese markets has leveled off at about the same percentages as prior to the Great Recession of 2019 and more private citizens are becoming comfortable in spending their money again. A strong step forward for the Portuguese! [+4 toward growth]

Pacifying the nationalists for at least a time, the institution of this policy sees the size of the Portuguese army swell by a fair amount throughout the course of the year. Though many young people are hesitant to join the army, they see no reason not to considering the alternative - jail. The goal of 10,000 soldiers is achieved easily, though now the Portuguese government will need to allocate funds to pay the wages of these new soldiers.


The Federated Republic of Albania
The oil resources of Albania spark the interest of all three major powers, and a bidding war ensues. Ultimately, it is India who presents the best offer - providing Albania with a weapons system of their choosing from India’s modern arsenal along with a small investment into Albanian infrastructure. [+1 BONUS toward growth][contact me on Skype to let me know what weapon system you want].

A full squadron of helicopters is constructed, though these helicopters are incredibly dated, as the Albanians are surely aware. Pilots are also a struggle to recruit, but nonetheless by the end of the year their weapons systems have been completed.

With the help of India’s small investment, plus the efforts of the Albanian government, the effort to connect industrial parks with military facilities is completed by the end of the year. Non-military civilians voice their displeasure at the lack of good infrastructure for them though, and lobby the government to put funds in their direction. [+1 toward growth]

The agricultural reforms, though met with some stiff resistance by traditionalist farmers who don’t wish to change their ways, eventually are forced upon the population. By the end of the year, Albania is on track to see the desired fruits of their labor [+1 toward growth].

With the nationalization of natural resources, several large companies move out of Albania and the jobless rate begins to steadily increase. By year's end, several thousand Albanians have been put out of work as companies begin to look elsewhere in the Balkans (or the world, for that matter) to base themselves out of. Such a policy is very unattractive toward businesses [-1 toward growth].

 

La República de Colombia
A noble effort, several hundred tons of explosives are discovered and discarded by the end of the year. The sweep through the jungles reveals the extent of the guerrilla war in Colombia, and it is estimated that there are still tons more left in the thick jungles of the nation. For most thoroughfares though, mines have been completed swept through and travel throughout Colombia is for the most part safe.

The improvement of infrastructure coincides with the effort to clean up bombs and traps set up by the guerrillas, and by the end of the year most large cities are either connected or nearly connected by new and well-maintained roads. The cities damaged during the wars still require quite a bit of cleanup, and as such more investment will be required [+3 to growth].

Trade relations are successfully established with all four of the desired nations with humanitarian aid gratefully accepted by all nations.


Republic of Brazil
Corruption runs rampant through the Brazilian government, but with the ruthless crackdown conducted by the regime, it seems to be at least partially stifled. Hundreds of public officials are ousted or jailed, and by the end of the year the extent of the corruption in Brazil can truly be appreciated. This crackdown garners a large amount of popular support for President de Azevedo and his party seems poised to gain landslide victories in the coming elections (which will be required to replace all the purged corrupt officials). Despite the purging though, the lack of public officials on many levels due to their ousting sees efficiency of the government, at least for now, decrease significantly (+3 toward growth).

The Republic of France

In addition to the immediate economic benefit of creating jobs and increasing demand for domestic industry, the AFITF’s improvement and modernisation of the French rail and highway network leads to a discernible increase in worker productivity. The decreased cost for public transport leads to increased usage of it, leading to the corporations running the trains and buses seeing a minor profit increase. [+4 toward Growth]

 

Macron’s campaign to patch up the political divide among the populace is met with limited success. While protests and riots are reduced, they are still a very large and visible part of the French political sphere, and will take some time and effort in order to placate.

 

KINGDOM OF ITALY
Desiring to increase their technological capabilities, the move toward the reformation of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society seems like a great first step. With this, and the Italian government’s moves toward promoting science and math literacy in the form of grants and rewards, the technological sectors both public and private see an increase in both earnings and output [to improve tech tiers, you must invest in specific technology -ie. A new form of rifle, new tank, etc. You can count this 2 AP toward that, or alternatively, you could count this toward just general upgraded in the form of modernizing tactics or something. Up to you, contact me if you want it toward an actual tech].

Infrastructure improvements do indeed see a significant increase in pace as a result of the nationalization of most construction companies. Many private business owners are concerned by this move though, and the Italian markets stumble a bit at the first announcement of these new policies. Regardless, the desired infrastructural improvements are completed by the end of the year.

The prototype corvette is completed by the end of the year at La Spezia and is prepared to undergo weapons testing.

 

Bundesrepublik Österreich

The step towards sustainable and self-sufficient energy production in Austria is well-received among the Austrian public, with people on the left approving of the environmental friendliness and those on the right lauding the move towards energy independence. In terms of results, the Austrian energy sector clearly feels the results of the increased funding, as operations by domestic corporations expand and energy prices drop. The work on Austrian infrastructure is also somewhat successful, though the slightly larger focus on power this year means that there will need to be more work done to fully modernise the Austrian infrastructure networks. [+3 toward growth]

 

The research into fusion technology coincides with the chancellery’s expansion of current power production. While no viable fusion-capable reactors manage to be constructed, the workforce and materials needed to produce these experiments and prototypes, as well as the beginnings of a fusion-orientated marked, mean that the Austrian economy is actually given a minor boost. [+2 toward growth]


Republic of Indonesia

As a result of the rapid military actions undertaken by the Republic of Indonesia, the People’s Republic of China mobilizes for war [Encounter].

Regardless of this mobilization though, the Indonesians sweep through the desired territories with rather remarkable ease as they take the populations of these countries off guard. The advances are slow due in large part to the terrain but as the year ends, most of what the Indonesians desire is under their control.

In late December though, the Chinese arrive. On the island of Borneo, 15,000 PLA Marines land on the Northern tip of the island and quickly seize Sabah from Indonesian control as Chinese airpower decimates Indonesian strategic resources in the region. Utilizing a vastly superior navy, the PLAN begins to engage the Indonesians in the waters where Asrul Kapur commands. Supported by a carrier and several submarines, hellfire rains down at the incredibly ill-prepared Indonesian fleet. The Chinese demand that the Indonesians cease their aggression against Malaysia immediately, or face full-scale invasion and occupation. Malaysia, not quick to back down, also sends it navy out to support the Chinese in the conflict.

East Timor and Papua New Guinea fall far too quickly for the Chinese to intervene and also seem far too disinteresting to the Chinese for any demands to be made in their regard.

Domestically, prior to the outbreak of war with China, President Anwaruddin’s draining of the swamp, so to speak, goes brilliantly. Dozens of officials are jailed for corruption and millions in diverted funds are directed back into the coffers of Indonesia. For all intents and purposes, the audit is seen as an astounding success and at least soften the damage down to the President’s reputation by the embarrassing defeat off the coasts of Borneo [+5 toward growth].

 

Tanzania
The general agriculture focus of the Tanzanian government this year results in a clear increase in crop yields, owed to the modernisation of current farmers with new equipment and more people starting up their own farms, which is now more financially accessible thanks to lower costs. Furthermore, the agricultural education means that fewer farmers end up failing both in terms of crops and finances, putting more surplus crops into the Tanzanian market. [+4 toward growth]

 

Sanitising the water in an undeveloped nation such as Tanzania would be no easy task, and while some regions are no longer as wracked by a lack of water hygiene as they used to be, a lot remain unclean. The initial efforts see some increase in public health, but more work will be needed in order to reduce the nigh pandemic of water-borne diseases such as cholera and parasites. [+1 toward growth]

Japan
Given the complete withdrawal of the U.S. from the Pacific, the long debate over Article 9 comes to an end on October 22nd, 2021 with its formal removal from the Japanese Constitution. It’s a move that many in Japan are wary of, but given the state of affairs, it must be done. China in particular watches the situation with interest, and states publicly its displeasure with the measure.

Japan, already a highly industrialized society, has no issue investing in dozens of new projects that improve the general health of the economy and help stimulate the markets after their collapse in 2021 [+5 toward growth].

 

Nigeria

A rather sly solution to public transportation, given the poor roads and lack of privately owned automobiles in Nigeria, President Foduye’s initiative proves to work brilliantly. By the end of the year, hundreds of miles of high-speed railways connect most major Nigerian ports and towns, allowing the vast resources of the country to finally start moving about. [+4 toward growth]

Though overt in their support of Islam, the Christians do not voice too much concern with Foduye’s efforts and instead petition to government to be simply protected from discrimination. The Christians will not push hard to actively convert Muslims, in return they ask that Islam not be pressed upon them and their communities - meaning they want the construction of Mosques in their majority regions to stop.

 

Korean Republic
The multiple avenues of renovation in the North seem, on the surface, to go rather well. Decaying roads and public service buildings are all restored and modernised, and though few have cars to drive on the new roads, the updating of healthcare centres and schools goes a long way in improving public health, literacy, and education. While a great many are thankful to be free of the yoke of the Kim dynasty and brought into the modern world, there are many still who either are in utter shock after the fall of everything they’d ever known, or cling fervently to the old ways. Despite this, the South’s efforts at bringing the North out of the ashes of the past goes a long way in their hearts and minds, and is a solid first step toward integration. [+5 toward growth]

 

New Zealand
White Feather Project [Skype for details]

 

Increased spending on primary and secondary education is praised by many New Zealanders, and the effects are not without positive effect. Already test scores and final exams seem to be improving, and many companies are preparing for an influx of higher skilled workers into the labour market. [+1 toward growth]

 

The armament of a portion of the New Zealander population goes quite well, in that like Australia, there is a surge in patriotism due to the Indonesian aggression, and hence the military finds it easy to source new recruits. 10,000 Regular Infantry finish training by the end of the year, fresh and ready for combat. [Skype me to talk about military stats]

 

Republic of Argentina
An investment package for small and large businesses is received very amicably by the beneficiaries, and the economic boons are felt quite quickly. Many long-standing local businesses begin small-scale expansion, and domestic Argentine corporations begin opening up new factories, departments, and chains across the South American nation, hiring more employees and producing more goods. [+5 toward growth]

 

Iran

A few of the nations approached by Iran are happy to attend the so-called Summit of Prosperity, specifically Iraq, Pakistan, Palestine and Qatar. However, the Saudis are still extremely wary of Iran since the 2017 diplomatic cut-off and so decline, and the increasing federalisation and closeness of the Gulf Cooperation Council (with the removal of Qatar and addition of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan) means that the previously more neutral Oman and United Arab Emirates echo their partner in Riyadh’s response. The rest, however, send their own delegations to see what the Iranians wish to discuss and propose. [Skype]

 

With the founding of the University in Iran, there is an increase in people pursuing a tertiary education, and in the next few years the amount of highly-skilled workers in Iran can expect to begin increasing. However, at the moment the course range of the University is somewhat limited, and facilities and staff are not quite at the world-class level. Despite the positive effects already being seen, more work will be to be done to make it so. [+1 toward Growth]

 

The construction of multiple Iranian sporting venues goes as planned, with the job creation and indirect investment into construction and material industries creating a minor boost to the Iranian economy. What’s more, with the new stadiums, Iran has the potential to slightly boost its soft power by hosting sporting events and making itself more culturally relevant in the world, though whether that can be realised is yet to be seen. [+3 toward Growth]

 

Work on improving and expanding the Iranian highway network begins, although rather slowly in this first year of construction. While there is a minor resultant improvement to Iran’s fiscal situation, a lot more work will need to be done to finish the project and fully modernise the major roads of the Islamic Republic, as stated. [+1 toward Growth]


[!][!][!]
EVENTS


Given the startling eruption and escalation of conflict all over the world, the global super powers begin to respond with appropriate force.

The United States, far from a negligible fighting force, mobilizes the entire Sixth Fleet to put an end to Spain’s intervention into a sovereign power. Included in this task force is the USS Gerald R. Ford, moved from the Pacific fleet at the end of the Korean conflict. American fighter aircraft almost immediately begin to establish a no-fly zone over Spain, and should Spain not cease and desist, the American aircraft would rather easily knock the inferior Spanish ones out of the sky.

The United States Marine Corps is put on standby, and a pair of Amphibious assault ships, fresh out of the Pacific and ready to deploy the full strength of the Marine corp, are also deployed. Drones begin to lurk high above the skies of the Iberian Peninsula as well, ready to strike at their discretion. The Spanish, and Italians for that matter, would be foolish to continue.

The United States also publicly states that any aggression, either taken by Israel or conducted by any state in the Levant, will result in direct American intervention against the aggressor. The Americans continue to encourage the status quo, and any disruption to that will be met with strict force.

China first denounces the Russian aggression against Kazakhstan, and at the behest of the Kazakh government, moves troops into the region to ensure protection along the Russian border. If Russia enters Kazakhstan, they will face war with the People’s Republic of China.

To the south, Indonesia finds itself in quite a conundrum as China rather easily swats its naval forces that attempt to blockade Eastern Malaysia, sending Asrul Kapur’s navy into full rout. 4 of his frigates are lost along with 9 of his corvettes. About two dozen patrol boats are also sent to Davy Jones. Chinese submarines also begin actively hunting the Indonesian ones with the conflict in the Straight greatly concerning them because of the importance of the trade route. 30 of Indonesia’s 39 aircraft are lost in the opening engagements with the incredibly effective J-20 Stealth Fighter.

Like Russia, the Indonesians are warned not to trifle with the People’s Republic.

India also condemns the actions taken by Indonesia, and moves its fleets to support the Chinese and Malaysians. India also publicly condemns the ratcheting up of further conflict in the Middle East and warns of intervention should anything get out of hand.

Across the world a string of nations suffered humiliating defeats. They had all over stepped their boundaries and suffered for it. Prime Minister Hughbert Cunningham and his cabinet would learn from their mistakes. They would stick to the status quo, as was apparent in their growing markets. As always investment will continue back into the U.K. Championed by the United Front the reforms will be broad and sweeping. Preliminary work had been getting the average citizen to start spending again. And now their focus would switch to further help it along the way.

 

*Their primary investments this year will be into the Service sector. Receiving subsides they are led to establishing new businesses. The U.K wants to cultivate smaller business and let the service industry boom. Of course economics were never so peachy. This was all a slow, excruciating step by step economic plan. But it would continue and people would learn it's ok to start spending again.

 

**As for the Moroccan affair, matters are further pursued. The U.K states it is in fact quite willing to help the West Saharans fight for their independence. However no official declaration is ever made. Instead the U.K keeps using it's agents to talk through back channels. They will begin to pour in non-offensive supplies, food, and humanitarian aide. They wait to see how the Moroccans would react to this non war related help. The U.S now present in Spain, is asked to assist in humanitarian aid. The U.K establishes it's own No-Fly zone above Gibraltar. Be it American, Spaniard, or Catalonian, no one is allowed to fly above the rock itself.

 

***The Military bases will continue construction in Israel/Lebanon. The Iranian threat was ignored. Along with any other Middle Eastern query into a Gaza independence. The U.K forces will simply set up shop and stand strong with their allies. Foot ball games, concerts, and other pass time activities are shared between the two forces.

 

****With a Lebanese green light, the U.K would like to take counter terror measures against the Hezbollah. U.K drones, air craft, artillery, and armored columns are put on immediate stand by. Should they receive permission they would seek out their targets. For now the U.K remains in it's bases waiting for the proper legal work to be accepted or denied. Agents however will begin to work with the Lebanese to acquire positions and names.

 

The disquiet continues in Ulster, a sizable portion of the U.K army has been moved in. A roster of everywhere from ships to quarter masters, they work to instill peace again. The people seem to not wish to fight the army however. Almost as if they had expected large forces to be garrisoning them soon. However all the world and media will hear is news of the escalating violence and secularism in Ulster/Ireland.

A troubled Kaiser Wilhelm V makes his address before prominent international news stations.   

 

“The world is heating up, once again.  Tensions in Europe are boiling over and I fear that the fault upon our present world order lies will snap so hard the shaking will be felt around the world.  Before we permanently damage the balance of power, I call for mediation in the Catalonian Crisis.  I personally invite delegations from Spain, France, Italy, the United States, and the United Kingdom to Berlin so that we may resolve this crisis peacefully and not compromise Europe’s ascent to power.” (MOD for U.S.)

 

-=-

 

“While sparks fly in the west, a wildfire rages across the east.  Indonesia has violated the sovereignty of the eastern nations of Papua New Guinea and East Timor.  Who knows how far they will go.  First Moresby then Beijing.  The south China sea is home to 3 and a half trillion dollars of trade, a literal cornerstone to the world economy.  As a responsible nation, the Kaiserreich cannot and will not let this vital world trade be held hostage by the Indonesian Pirate Kyai Haji Anwaruddin.”

 

-=-

 

Germany dispatches an ambassador to Beijing to discuss the state of the south east and understand China’s positions. As a result of Indonesian warmongering, Germany guarantees the independence of Singapore and offers to station 4,000 German soldiers and a small naval contingent of 10 F125 Baden-Württemberg-class frigates each equipped with 2 helicopters. Germany supports China’s ultimatum in demanding that Indonesia immediately withdraw from all occupied territories. (MOD)

 

Germany accepts the trade requests from Portugal, Italy, and Austria.

 

"To encourage scientific cooperation within Europe, I am announcing the second founding of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society for the Advancement of Science in cooperation with the Italians, " begins the Kaiser. "The KWS will be tasked with furthering the development of cutting edge technology in the Reich and with its friends, and rewarding those who have made a significant contribution to science."  The first priority set forward by the Kaiser will be to encourage the development of renewable energy and to put the Kaiserreich on a path to energy independence.  Studies into the feasibility of Fusion reactions are funded as well as other prominent scientific endeavors. (1 AP)

 

A delegation is sent from Berlin to Rome to discuss technological ties with the Italians.  “While the Reich is not yet ready to exchange military technology, our two nations can collaborate in the civilian industry.” (Italy)

 

Austria is formally invited to the Kaiser Wilhelm Society for the Advancement of Science.

 

A delegation is sent from Berlin to Moscow to discuss matters of state. (Russia)

 

The Kaiserreich establishes a military alliance with the Netherlands.  Military exercises begin between the two countries.   

 

Free trade agreements begin with Luxembourg and the Netherlands.  

 

Domestic Affairs:

 

Work proceeded as planned in the Germany’s infrastructure and public works projects.  The autobahn was extending further than ever before, and Germany’s airports were updated and renovated.  New bridges and tunnels were being erected across the fatherland and the people were proud of the engineering marvels and their tax dollars at work.  The existing rail systems would be revamped and modern high speed railways would continue to extend across Germany. (2 AP invested -> total: 6/10)

 

With the evident success of the subsidies for children, the Kaiser would continue on with them.  To further prop up the success, a program to lower the income taxes of married couples with children by 2% is introduced.  Income taxes on couples without children under 40 are increased by 1%.  

 

“The world of Bismarck”, a movie sponsored by the German department for the arts, premieres on September 2nd 2022.  While officially a documentary about Bismarck and his successful politics, the film features slight nationalistic tones and glorifies the victorious conflicts undertaken by Germany in the late 1800s.  It subtly celebrates the first German Kaiserreich under Wilhelm I and the glory attained by it.  

 

Operation “To see the unseen”

 

The Kaiser would seat himself at today’s cabinet meeting, greeting his ministers before moving to the matter at hand.  He would glance to his minister of intelligence and begin, “For too long have we been blind in the world.  It is time to open our eyes to the threats at home and abroad.  To protect the fatherland from its enemies at home and from abroad, I am announcing the consolidation of military intelligence services under the Abwehr.  With increased resources, I entrust you, minister Müller, with ensuring German mastery of the hidden." (2 AP)

 

THE KAISER'S SPEECH

 

Following the integration of Prussia and Silesia into the Kaiserreich, the Kaiser gave an address to the polish people.  He would embody a somber tone and make an appeal to the Polish people.

 

"To the citizens of Prussia.  I know how you must feel, seeing your homes for the first time not in Poland, but in Germany.  I understand your fears, your anxiety.  While you may not trust me, I offer the people of Prussia every reassurance they seek.  The newly created autonomous region of Schläsing-Preußen will have polish leaders, polish policeman, and polish institutions.  I will make no move to enforce my will by the present circumstances.  The fate of Prussia is up to the Prussians."

 

"What your government has done is not an act of betrayal as many suggest, but one of grand and noble sacrifice for the future of the Polish state.  Poland was unjustly punished by the Soviet Union after the Second World War, and Germany seeks to make things right.  We will restore rightful polish lands to Poland.  The Polish state, with German support, shall enter into a new era of supremacy.  To show my desire to treat the poles of Prussia equally, I will dispatch German engineers and officials to inspect the infrastructure.  I plan to expand Germany’s public works program to the east and raise the standards of Prussia to that of Germany proper."

 

-German technicians and officials are sent to major infrastructure locations to perform evaluations. These locations include power plants, ports, airports, railway stations and hubs, power grid hubs, and communications installations.

 

"To the radicals who would raise hell before being under the Reich.  Will you put the integrity of diplomacy and the safety of your kin after that of your own political interests?  Will you exploit dissent within the people of Prussia to stake your claim to illegitimate power at the expense of millions of innocent Poles and Germans?  And will you risk your lives, those of your families, friends, to achieve a freedom that you already have?"

 

The Kaiser finished his speech there, leaving those listening with those words of caution.

With mountains and glaciers, Austria has the best preposition for building additional dams for power generation. It has always been an asset to the people of Austria, and they do not fret to continue expanding upon the system of water power plants, in order to attain their goal of independence from energy imports.

Actions & Diplomacy

 

 

The populace of Austria is increasingly concerned as the world around them appears to fall into old systems of might and control, focusing on rearmament instead of disarmament. War not peace, the leaders of this world appear to have in mind, something the Chancellor Samuel Krainzmeier does not agree to. As a sign of retaining neutrality for the Second Republic, the government maintains a position of neutrality, not changing the currently allocated defense budget. In lieu with the various mobilizations happening, Chancellor Krainzmeier does propose peace talks between the parties in dispute, to be hosted in Vienna, the Austrian capital. In order to prevent another European war, from which they may never recover. It was in hope, that centuries of war and two world wars have taught enough of a lesson.

 

With the leave from the European Union those years ago, Austria continues to seek to establish trade agreements with neighbouring countries, given it being landlocked. As it stands, Germany and Italy, the latter already having agreed to such, are the only candidates. Unless the trade agreements can be extended over the ports of either nation, it will remain at that. (Trade with anyone who is willing, assuming I am permitted to trade through Italy.)

 

Whilst the energy infrastructure budget for this year is lower than previously allocated, it still is substantial. Improvements in the network of transmission towers and substations should help handle the newly gained energy. Whatever is excess would of course be exported. (2 AP into this. Investment, per say.)

 

A recent report about some shortcomings in the healthcare system does incite the government to invest into it. All current hospitals are to receive upgrades in equipment or maintenance in existing equipment. Whilst the social security system is still a topic heavily discussed in the parliament, with the spotlight on the "abuse", improving the system takes precedence, to assure the well-being of all patients of the Austrian healthcare structure. (2 AP into healthcare.)

“Gentlemen…” Newly chosen President Medvedev spoke up in Congress. “It is well known that the people were in unrest with our past president, Vladimir Putin. I, however, did not know it would come to the point that he was to hand over his position to me. After the referendum and the unrest was shown, it is true that a new leader had to be chosen. I am happy that the people of Russia and the people of this Congress have chosen me. I will make sure that Russia goes back to all it’s former glories, both in good times or bad times.”

Internal Affairs

 

As the Europe of the 2020s descended frightfully fast into dictatorships, conservative rule and even Monarchies, Poland would stand firm by its free rule and ideology of democracy that matched the United States of America. Democracy would prevail, and although the status quo might not be kept, stability and an agenda for prosperity would be assured.

 

The ‘Old Man of Warsawa’, Kosciusko would sit firm at the helm of Poland, starting of his third consecutive term in office with a ruthless gutting of the last arch conservative ministers in an effort to put the finishing touches on his European, modern country. Such was his speech at the inauguration;

 

Mazurek Dąbrowskiege, Countrymen! It is for the third time you invite me to sit in the Sjem, and for a third time in my long life that I do. I will not go over old stories and personal histories, as you have all heard the spiel, to borrow a word from our neighbors, before! This country, our Polska has gone very far, very fast. The world moved as the winter winds, and we with it - I needn’t tell you our accomplishments since our freedom, but I must tell you that nothing will jeopardize them in the present and future. I intend not to push for the ‘status quo’, as you know of me, but myself, and our government will be as proactive as our stations allow us to ensure the stability, livelihood and future of Polska.

 

Alas, I must indulge a story of my life that many of you know, and have already heard. This is not without due cause! Storm clouds gather over Europe, and particularly Germany. These words have been said before, and I, and a select few of people across our country have heard them before. We cannot ignore the reality of the situation, and we will assure you that we will not have a repeat of last time. With that dark note done with, I move onto a fairer discussion. Polska is a leader in Europe ready to break out of it’s shell - Our economy is strong, our society is a one of great equality and strength, and we rank the best in many European fields.”
