With permisson from Daxus, I bring you people Almost 4. Almost 4 will be a mostly modified version of Almost 2, with some key differences. Read the PODs below for more information.

What is Almost? Well Almost is a map game in which almost everything that could have happened in something place did happen. Perhaps someone who was important died, or someone who died OTL didn't die. Diffirent outcomes of battles, a storm here and there, someone build a colony here instead of there This game is coming back with some minor changes to the rules (and a new new new algorithm), but all in all the game is going to be the same.

Major PODsEdit

EuropeEdit

  • Celtic Brythonians managed to hold back the Anglo-Saxons, and Brittanian remained largely Celtic. England also never split from the Catholic Church.
  • Vikings never discovered Iceland and the Irish monk colony their succeeded, causing Iceland rename as Thule with a Celtic population.
  • Napoleon's brother remained in control of Spain and conquered Portugal, whose royal family fled to Brazil. This would result in the collapse of the Portuguese Empire and cause most of their colonies to declare independence.
  • Belgium never revolted from the Netherlands.
  • Italy was never properly united.
  • The Baltic peoples were far more united under Lithuanian culture, and manged to repel many of the later German and Russian invasions.
  • After the Battle of Tours, King Charles the Hammer with greater help from Christian Frankish and Germanic tribes managed to drive the Umayyads out of Hispania, and all the way to North Africa where the Christian Kingdom of Mauretania was then set up. Other parts of Christian North Africa were eventually lost.
  • The 3rd Crusade was far more successful, as the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire did not drown, and the King of France didn't get sick, allowing them as well as the King of Mauritania (Morocco) to accompany King Richard the Lion-heart. This allowed the Christians to retake much the Levant and keep a hold of it. These counties in the Holy Land later formed Greater Jerusalem.
  • Britain remained predominantly Catholic, along with Ireland, but not Iceland.
  • Poland is a war-torn region fulled of proxy-wars between the German Empire, Russian Empire, and Kingdom of Lithuania.
  • Norwegian and Swedish culture never diverged, remaining Norse. The Finnish were later Norsised. These factors allowed for Scandinavia to stay united.
  • Bulgaria and Romania stand much more militarised than OTL, and as a result are more capable of resisting Ottoman Influence.
  • The Thirty Years War is less devastating for Germany, and as a result the German States unify earlier.
  • Napoleon the Third re-establishes France as an empire. The Franco-Prussian War never happens, allowing France to maintain a close military parity with Germany.

AsiaEdit

  • The Buddhist Uesugi clan unified Japan. This resulted in more widespread Buddhism over Shintoism in Japan.
  • After the fall of the Persian Empire, many Zoroastrians fled to Central Asia rather than India, producing predominantly Zoroastrian-Shamanistic cultures amongst the Central Asians.
  • The Ottomans never assassinated all their Janissaries, allowing for them to retain a greater amount of power.
  • Sikhism was more predominant in Northwest India up to Kashmir, effectively creating a wall between Hindus and Muslims, allowing India to remain more predominantly Hindu.
  • The Ottomans were stopped mostly past Anatolia by united Slavic forces.
  • The Taungoo managed to resist European conquest after allying with Siam.
  • The stronger-than-OTL Ottomans and Persians set aside their differences and allied against Europeans. Joined later by the Turkmen Federation they were able to resist the British and Russians.
  • The Dutch Colonized the Philippines.

AmericasEdit

  • Alaska and much of Western Canada was colonized by Russia.
  • The Moors colonized most of the Caribbean.
  • Maya were unified and managed to defend themselves from the Toltec, and many rulers converted to Christianity when the Spanish came and were able to retain greater parts of their culture. This also results in the current Ajawa of Maya
  • Netherlands colonzied all of Guinea.
  • Mexican Empire remained.
  • Many Native American tribes in the Appalachians united into a confederation, and managed to secure s sizable amount of land for themselves to keep from the colonists.
  • Empire of Brittania colonized Greenland and most of Canada, whereas France would end up colonizing most of OTL USA over to California.

OceaniaEdit

  • Portugal colonized Tasmania.
  • The Netherlands colonized New Zeeland
  • Melanesia was completely colonized by Brittanica.
  • Indonesia was divided more amongst the Europeans.

AfricaEdit

  • Portugal colonzied Mozambique and Madagascar.
  • Shaka Zulu was never born, and as a result Afrikaaners are more predominant in South Africa, and make up about 35% of the population (OTL 15%). The British also were unable to defeat the Boers.
  • After the collapse of the Umayyads and conquest by King Charles the Hammer the Moroccans/Mauritanians were Christianized. They were later considered Western and became a minor colonial-power.
  • Liberia would become an international colony to send free-slaves.

The GameEdit

1875Edit

Late start but who cares.

Japanese Ships are spotted off the coast of Korea.

Gran Colombia begins a process of Naval Development. 

Tension builds in Brazil between Royalists and Republicans.

War between the Ottoman Empire and Russia ends with a few border towns changing hands.

Just as a note: This turn is longer by about sevdm hours. Normal turns will only last 24 hours.

Liechtenstein: The military has begun to built its military and recruit their troops. Meanwhile, thus far the population grows up in Vaduz. The economy expands and invests the income. More buildings will be built very soon and the cities. The factories, fortresses and bunkers will be built, to develop the vehicles and weapons at the future.

Netherlands: Trade expands with overseas colonies, and the navy begins to experiment with modernization. Infantry remains fairly small but undergoes some expansion. The mainland undergoes industrialization, and some industries, run by Dutch industrialists and staffed with native workers, are constructed in the colonies to begin export of industrial goods (other than weapons) to other countries. A trade agreement is proposed with Germany, and the government secretly offers South African Afrikaner rebels support if they agree to rejoin the Netherlands, with an assurance of very light rule from the mainland.

Romania: We expand our economy, infrastructure, etc. We begin the industrialization of our nation. We want to make trade agreemenrs with the Netherlands, Austria and Russia. We promote propaganda that Serbia is oppressing minorities in Vojvodina and Timok. We create autonomous regions for German, Szekler and Hungarian people. We promote immigration to us, especially in the Caucasus and in the Trebiznd Vilayit, warning of the Ottoman tendency to radical Islam.

  • Netherlands Dip: We accept the trade agreement.

Japan: Japanese forces are sent to the Korean peninsula to enforce Kyoto's will on the Korean state, after the insult suffered by the delegation. Forces led by Saigo land in South Jeolla. The oligarchy continues to push forward the modernization of the imperial forces following through with conscription and the development of a domestic arms industry. naval expansion begins as the government determines that it is necessary for the future security of the nation. industrialization continues, particularly in the textile and heavy industry areas, Osaka, Kyoto, Edo, and Kyushu are the areas that benefit the most from growing trade with the west. Efforts to bring the Ryukyu islands and Hokkiado into the national centre continue as settlement of the islands continue. 

Brazil: Due to rapidly rising tensions between the Royalists and Republicans, a Royalist army under the leadership of Crown Prince Luís attacks a Republican-controlled military base near Sao Paulo, which results in a decisive victory for the Royalists. This also causes the beginning of the Brazilian Civil War, as shortly after the attack, the Republican leader Fernando Magal proclaims the Republic of the Amazon and declares independence from the Brazilian nation. Due to this, military and infrastructure is rapidly improved.

Korea: Monarch Gojong declares war on Japan, and begins fighting the Japanese in South Jeolla, and also fights them at sea. Meanwhile, plans to also modernise and industrialise are made.

Germany: The German Empire, under the rule of 29 year old Emperor Wilhelm III, offers an alliance to the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Lithuania and Lousianne. It offers trade agreements to Britannia, Scandinavia, Lithuania, Netherlands and Russia. 

  • Kamerun: Work is done on the infrastructure. Johann Mircheit is appointed Kleinkanzler for Kamerun.
  • Kongo: Work is done on the infrastructure. Marcus Fiernar is appointed Kleinkanzler for Kongo.
  • Sudwest-Afrika: Work is done on the infrastructure. Thom Rietlir is appointed Kleinkanzler for Sudwest-Afrika.
  • Tanganyika: Work is done on the infrastructure. Milo Kramer is appointed Kleinkanzler for Tanganyika.
  • Netherlands Dip: We accept your alliance offer. We had already proposed a trade agreement to you, but we will agree to yours.
  • Lithuanian Dip: We accept your alliance and trade agreement offers. Our army would also be interested to purchase military equipment from Germany.

Scandinavia: With a population of around six million, we begin to build infrastructure, mostly in the form of railways. We also start to start putting trolley services in major cities, as well as buses and other public transportation. We begin to increase the numbers of our armed forces, which currently stands at about 76,540 men enlisted, with around 25,000 in the navy. Thus, we begin to invest in more high tech equipment, to make up for the lack of man power. We also begin construction of two powerful and modern destroyers, to be completed within three years. We accept the generous alliance offer from Germany, as well as the trade deal, and ask to buy military technology in order to improve our military. We also improve our economy, and begin industrialization, with many factories being opened in the southern portion of our nation.

Louisianne: The Nation of Louisianne continues to standardize her army. Currently, a professional army of 90,000 men remains active. The Navy undergoes a massive expansion, ordering 12 light cruisers, eight more gunboats, six more patrol vessels, and one new battleship. Industry expands, focusing on the areas such as Ohio, New Burgundy (New York), Pennsylvania and New Normandy (New Jersey). Louisianne begins to focus on finishing Manifest destiny, now that the Soix are defeated in the midwest, Louisanne can focus on the centralized Nation of Deseret, declaring war and mobilizing. The desert reclamation act is passed to encourage settlement in the aird regions of the midwest. Steady trade continues with japan and china. We also ask to purchase Russian Alaska.

Britannia: We begin a military buildup and economic expansion. We begin to expand our efforts to ensuring the economic prosperity of both the Home Counties and the Colonies in West Canada, and in Oceania. The Britannian Raj continues to subdue the local Hindu population, and colonies in Africa continue their expansion deeper into the continent. The Royal Armed Forces continue fighting against the rebels in Southern Africa, as the situation continues to destabilise and our society continues expansion in the region. Industrialisation continues, and technological innovation also continues, as this year, the telephone is invented in Britannia, with the first words being pronounced over on the telephone being "Mr. Dewey, please come here". Our government begins the construction of various water treatment facilities to deal with the issue of dirty, polluted water in the Thames River, and this helps expand the industrialisation of London. Industralisation at this point begins to expand into Western Canada and the Pacific, in order to help expand their economies and provide a source of income for Britannia. Meanwhile, we begin to expand our Navy, as we begin to expand to other various different territories. 

Qing Dynasty: Due to recent military humiliations, most people reach a consensus that in order to protect itself against the West, it must adopt Western military technology and armaments. China will begin to also emulate the West in their economic achievements in a similar way to Japan. Empress Dowager Cixi decides to begin the process of industrialisation, building a dozen textile factories in Beijing. She also continues the Self-Strengthening movement in an attempt to modernise Chinese armies so that they will avoid further territorial losses. We enter the war in East Asia on the side of our close ally Korea, deploying some 100,000 troops to South Jeolla.  

Lithuania: After more than century of weak rulers and careless Seimas country has fallen behind Europe quite a bit. King Kestutis III dies unexpectedly and his son Zygimantas V, at the age of 25 still young and idealistic, becomes his successor. He is very keen to reform Seimas, finally putting a decisive end to stagnant and sluggish government. Despite slight opposition from influential officials he has the support of people and manages to completely release the whole Seimas and other corrupt, innactive links in lithuanian political apparatus. New elections are organized as fast as possible with very strict rules regarding bribery and candidates. Political allegiance is mostly decided by represented region or nationality, no proper parties are present as of yet. After election season, the new King and Seimas rush to form the new government. Experienced professionals are chosen as ministers in fields where most practical reforms are needed.

To revive the economy, huge amount of resources go towards renovating and expanding ports. Many private trading enterprises are opened to satisfy the growing demand of western goods. Many schools, academies and universities get far bigger funding so that more people would get an education. Instead of exporting raw materials, many more people start their manufactures and workshops. Some private military equipment workshops are opened as the government announces upcoming army reforms but they are so small that majority of equipment is still going to be imported.

King Zygimantas decides to go all-in on it and insane amounts of money are thrown into renovation of infrastructure in the entire country. He figures that now, due to rapid growth of economy, is the only chance to pull that off without going too deep into debt. At the end of the year Lithuania stands at about 12 million people, small but developing industry,no navy and a tiny standing army of 30000 men.

  • Mongolian Dip: Mongolia requests Lithuanian help in building factories and industrialising the country. We will pay you £300,000.
  • Lithuanian Dip: We will gladly help you (secret: but you will have to provide assistance in case of any conflict between Lithuania and Russia).

Mongolia: Our government decides to launch a recruitment drive to recruit 2300 more soldiers and build 20 armoured trains. We request a Greater Oriental alliance with China,Korea and the Turkmen federation. Citizens grow hostile towards Ottoman Empire after the murder of a Mongolian citizen by an Ottoman. We launch research into hot air balloons and purchase three from a French salesman. The country is up in arms against The Ottoman empire and Japan. We enter the war in East Asia on the side of Korea after a group of men with Japanese rifles are arrested by the night watch in Ulan Bator. 100 soldiers are sent through China on an armoured train and arrive in Korea in two weeks. Our soldiers are deployed to South Jeolla and raid a Japanese naval base, using Nitro-glycerine to destroy two Ironclads.

Russia: We begin an invasion of Korea, sending 150,000 troops to the north of the country. We build our military and infrastructure. We begin planning an invasion of Mongolia. We do not want to go to war with China, but if they attack us then we would begin an invasion of Northern China. We begin influencing nations in East Europe. We build roads across the country. We would like to offer the 'Asian League' to Japan and anu other countries accept from Mongolia, Korea or any of the nations that ally with Korea.

French Empire: The death of Napoleon III two years prior still continues to sadden the people of France, seeing as he continued to make France a great Empire. Théodore Duplessis, a former French general, takes his place as Emperor of France and promises to continue to make France a stronger nation and Empire. Due to being a general, he is also appointed Commander of French Forces. We improve our agriculture, trade systems, and military. We raise much support for joining the armed forces and make it a top priority. We ask the Ottoman Empire, Netherlands, Spain, and Germany to trade. We improve our relations with Germany and ask for an alliance. We gain tons of resources from our African and Asian colonies and improve conditions within those colonies. We claim that Milan's troops fired on us and we declare war. We build up a strong army and Duplessis commands 220,000 troops to invade the mainland along with heavy artillery support and powerful firearms. We send a fleet to blockade Milan on their west coast and destroy any naval resistance. Our forces head for the capital of Milan to defeat the country in two swift move. We decide to hold a large meeting for the leaders of Europe to discuss major future plans known as the European Assembly. All nations of Europe are invited and suggested to come.

  • Netherlands Dip: We agree both to the trade agreement and to attend the European Assembly.
  • Lithuanian Dip: We agree to attend the European Assembly and suggest expanding trade ties between our countries.

1876Edit

South Africa Rejects the dutch offer.

Mongolia going to war for Korea is ridiculous and retconed as of now. Same with Chinese Adoption of Western Tech. It would take years for that.

  • DID I FUCKING SAY THAT I EVER SAY I ADOPTED WESTERN TECHNOLOGY IN A YEAR?

A massacare of Bulgarian citizens by the Ottoman Empire occurs. Bulgaria demands that the rights of ethnic Bulgars are protected.


Lithuania: Pretty much all the ports have been repaired and expanded as planned by this time, some minor work is still going on in Riga and Klaipeda as those are the biggest ones. Trade by sea has massively increased and some ports are already in need of further expansion. Far less repair work combined with sky-rocketing private investment allows government to allocate funds to other areas. Hype for western goods is slowly dying down as supply increases, internal markets appear to be more stable and continue growing, along with expanding industry, at a steady pace, providing more tax money. Thanks to this we are able to continue improving our infrastructure.

With income growing faster than spendings this year, Zygimantas is able to start paying back debts and interest that made all this possible. Between debt and spendings, he still raises army budget by a hefty amount. Ministry of War starts buying out military equipment from lithuanian manufacturers, imports are fairly limited. This is done so spendings would keep boosting our economy, instead of going directly abroad. This is also done this way because government wants to avoid rapid conscription, and with little manpower to equip, little equipment is needed, enabling local suppliers to get a bigger share of sales and expand. Standing army grows by 20 thousands men, 30-40 thousands are expected to be added next year.

With news of Russian aggression in Asia, Zygimantas becomes increasingly cautious and invites Scandinavia, Germany, Romania, Ottoman Empire and Turkmen Federation (Mongolia, China and Korea excluded due to their situation) to form an anti-Russian coalition.

Despite having hopes to "scare off" Russian threat, Zygimantas doesn't want history to repeat itself yet again on devastated Polish lands. He assembles the army and declares war on Poland on the ground of unifying polish people under a stronger entity to ensure them better conditions. He avoids any unnecessary fighting and takes everything as peacefully as he can to be seen as a good ruler rather than ruthless conqueror.

  • Romanian Dip: We join this coalition, as we agree that Russian expansionism is threatening us all.

Ottomans Accept.

Germany: The German Empire, under the rule of 29 year old Emperor Wilhelm III, offers an alliance to the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Lithuania and Lousianne. It offers trade agreements to Britannia, Scandinavia, Lithuania, Netherlands and Russia. 

  • Kamerun: Work is done on the infrastructure. Johann Mircheit is appointed Kleinkanzler for Kamerun.
  • Kongo: Work is done on the infrastructure. Marcus Fiernar is appointed Kleinkanzler for Kongo.
  • Sudwest-Afrika: Work is done on the infrastructure. Thom Rietlir is appointed Kleinkanzler for Sudwest-Afrika.

  • Posenland: Work is done on the economy. Lukas Grosskeuken is appointed Kleinkanzler for Posenland.

Romania: We continue our industrialization. We continue expanding the Odessa Harbour. We ask for alliances with the Netherlands and Germany.

  • Netherlands Dip: We agree to the alliance.

The Netherlands: We begin to implement our plan for industrialization of the colonies, this plan being the following: implement taxes on industrial goods to other countries that, while still making the products profitable, will make them considerably less so than selling them to the Netherlands. We request to buy naval vessels from Britannia. We continue modernizing the navy, and begin constructing newer ships. We also continue industrializing the mainland, primarily in military industries.

  • Dutch Guinea (West Africa): We begin industrializing in industries related to the products of the region. Albert Ogetrop is appointed industrieel (a Dutch advisor in local industries).
  • Dutch East Indies (Including Philippines): We begin industrializing in industries related to the products of the region. Fons Mesman is appointed industrieel.
  • Dutch Somalia: We begin industrializing in industries related to the products of the region. Ignaas Alink is appointed industrieel.
  • Dutch Suriname (South America):We begin industrializing in industries related to the products of the region. Arnoud van Leeuwen is appointed industrieel.

​Liechtenstein: We expand military and economy. We militarise many troops to our army. Modernization of the buildings begin to modernize and the industry keeps good income alive. The construction of the buildings is start to build to make more population in Vaduz. Although, the materials will be delivered and constructed.

Japan: Japanese forces in Jeolla take advantage of the destruction of the Joseon and Chinese forces and march on Seoul, having secured Jeolla and a supply line a fresh 100,000 troops are sent to reinforce the 100,000 already on the mainland. A force of 30,000 is sent to take the island of Formosa (OTL Taiwan). The Imperial Navy is sent to blockade Chinese movements in the Yellow Sea and along the major sea routes along the Chinese coastline. The oligarchy continues to push forward the modernization of the imperial forces following through with conscription and the development of a domestic arms industry. Production of breech loaded rifles based on the OTL Mauser 72 model begins after a prototype is developed by Arisaka co. in Osaka. Naval expansion begins as the government determines that it is necesary for the future security of the nation, three ironclad ships are commissioned to help with the war efforts industrialization continues, particularly in the textile and heavy industry areas, Osaka, Kyoto, Edo, and Kyushu are the areas that benifit the most from growing trade with the we.st. Efforts to bring the Ryukyu islands and Hokkiado into the national centre continue as settlement of the islands continue. The japanese offer the Joseon dynasty peace if they agree to Korea becoming a protecterate of the Japanese empire and supply 70,000 troops for the campaign against China.

  • Korea Diplomacy: Monarch Gojong accepts Japan's demands, and will send 70,000 troops for the campaign against China.

Korea: Plans to modernise and industrialise continue to be made. Monarch Gojong sends 70,000 troops for the campaign against China.

Brazil: The Brazilian Civil War rages on, with the São Paulo Campaign being a massive success for the Royalist armies. We continue to rapidly conscript more people into our national armies, and we rapidly build forts around our major cities. Emperor Pedro II is assassinated while visiting the Guyanese city of Suriname by a political anarchist, and his son Luís becomes the new Emperor of Brazil. We offer an alliance and multiple trade agreements with the neighboring nation of Gran Colombia.

Qing Dynasty: Due to recent military humiliations, most people reach a consensus that in order to protect itself against the West, it must adopt Western military technology and armaments. China will begin to also emulate the West in their economic achievements in a similar way to Japan. Empress Dowager Cixi decides to begin the process of industrialisation, building a dozen textile factories in Beijing. She also continues the Self-Strengthening movement in an attempt to modernise Chinese armies so that they will avoid further territorial losses. We enter the war in East Asia on the side of our close ally Korea, deploying some 100,000 troops to South Jeolla.  

Louisianne: he Nation of Louisanne continues to standardize her army. Currently, a professional army of 90,000 men remains active. The Navy undergoes a massive expansion, ordering 12 light cruisers, eight more gunboats, six more patrol vessels, and one new battleship. Industry expands, focusing on the areas such as Ohio, New Burgandy (New York), Pennsylvania and New Normandy (New Jersey). Louisianne begins to focus on finishing Manifest destiny, now that the Soix are defeated in the midwest, Louisanne can focus on the centralized Nation of Deseret, declaring war and mobolizing. The desert reclaimtion act is passed to encourage settlement in the aird regions of the midwest. Steady trade continues with Japan and China.</span> We also ask to purchase Russian Alaska.

  • Russian Dip: We certainly do not want to sell Russian Alan

1877Edit

I was sick last night and could not due the turn. Players are welcome to do it if it is not up by 12:00 AM EST.

Lithuania: Ports are still being expanded but by this time, it's all private initiative. The only investments from treasury are going towards state owned trade companies. Zygimantas knows that having an expansive sea trade network is crucial for his plans. Our fleets are not as far reaching that they would need serious protection, but soon they might be, so despite not having a navy yet, many new docks and military harbors are established, professionals are hired from abroad to supervise the process and educate our sailors, shipwrights and engineers. With Poland now under our control, we have about four million more inhabitants and a pretty big chunk of land. Poles are granted limited autonomy and some small areas are ceded to them as a sign of friendship. It was expected that such a rapid expansion of Lithuanian industry in previous years would cause a minor recession period, but with new polish market now fully open, industry expands even further, albeit, more carefully than before.

Virtually all the major infrastructure repair works are finished in Lithuania. Now most of the attention goes towards slowly expanding roads and building some railroads, as well as massively improving and rebuilding our urban areas which are very important to support the growing industry. Huge railroad project is planned for the next year. Manpower and resources that are no longer needed in Lithuania are assigned to bring Poland up to our standard of infrastructure, especially Warsaw, as quick as possible. To go with this, Royal Family along with Polish representatives in Seimas invite poles from Russia to move to Lithuanian Kingdom, promising them far better conditions, work and education in their homeland.

Since our population is now 16 million and growing, nearly 70 thousand men are conscripted, more than doubling the size of our army. With increasing but unstable demand for military equipment, Ministry of War starts building state owned workshops that would work on demand to provide anything that local suppliers are unable to provide. Nevertheless, minimal required supplies are still bought from private manufacturers to continue supporting our own private military industry. We also open new academies to educate army officers and engineers. Huge workshops are being built in Vilnius, Riga, Klaipeda and Warsaw to start serious production of artillery pieces and shells.

Liechtenstein: Economy expands and continues to improve. We continue to develop the weapons. As more troops been recruited to the military. The railways and roads will be built. Some planned buildings will be determined in 1879. Though the plan of the buildings is not yet decided. Population continue to grow at Vaduz.

Iberia: With the population standing at 420 million, we begin to increase our militaries size, which is already 400,000 in number. We begin construction of two modern battleships as well as several bestroyers and other boats. Econmmy improves.

  • Lithuanian Dip: We would like to sign an extended trade agreement with Iberia, and, if possible, get some exclusive trading rights in Florida and Asian colonies in exchange for direct payments.
  • Lousianne Dip: We request to purchase Flordia for a lump fee, but also inform Iberia that this is a simple formality and war is 100% an option should Iberia reject our generous offer.
  • German Dip: We offer an alliance to Iberia.

Romania: We expand our economy, infrastructure, etc. We begin the industrialization of our nation. We want to make trade agreements with Austria and Russia. We promote propaganda that Serbia is oppressing minorities in Vojvodina and Timok. We create autonomous regions for German, Szekler and Hungarian people. We promote immigration to us, especially in the Caucasus and in the Trebizond Vilayit, warning of the Ottoman tendency to radical Islam.

  • Russian Dip: We accept.

Russia: We continue our war against Korea. Build our military/Eco and infa. Offers trade agreement to any country which is Willing to accept. Nothing much else happens.

Britannia: We continue a military buildup and economic expansion. We continue to expand our efforts to ensuring the economic prosperity of both the Home Counties and the Colonies in West Canada, and in Oceania. The Britannian Raj continues to subdue the local Hindu population, and colonies in Africa continue their expansion deeper into the continent. The Royal Armed Forces continue fighting against the rebels in Southern Africa, as the situation continues to destabilise and our society continues expansion in the region. Additional troops the Home Counties themselves are also deployed to South Africa to deal with the uprising. Industrialisation continues, and technological innovation also continues, as this year, Thomas Scott statistically solves the problem of enthropy. Our government continues the construction of various water treatment facilities to deal with the issue of dirty, polluted water in the Thames River, and this helps expand the industrialisation of London. Industralisation at this point continues to expand into Western Canada and the Pacific, in order to help expand their economies and provide a source of income for Britannia. Meanwhile, we begin to expand our Navy, as we begin to expand to other various different territories. 

Louisianne: Having finished the conquest of Deseret, the nation begins reconstruction. Naval expansion concludes, with Loisianne now having oner of the largest navies on the planet. Steady trade with various nations continues. Aeronautic developments continue. An alliance is forged following Germany's request. Money is funnelled secretly to Brazilian Imperialists.

Korea: Plans to modernise and industrialise continue to be made. Monarch Gojong sends 70,000 troops for the campaign against China.

Germany: The German Empire, under the rule of 29 year old Emperor Wilhelm III, offers trade agreements to Britannia, Scandinavia, Lithuania, Netherlands and Russia.

1878Edit

The Brazilian Republicans Flee following their various defeats.

Bulgaria, Greece, and Serbia begin a coalition war against the Ottoman Empire in the (First) Balkan War.

Lithuania: After several years of preparations, first big ironclad of newly created navy is introduced with big public celebration in Riga. In ten upcoming years it is planned to bring the navy to at least 50 big and 100 secondary service ships, with virtually all of them being built, completed and armed in our own dry-docks.

With increasing trade and population, government decides to finally approve of huge new railroad expansion project. Two main lines are going to connect all parts of the country, first north-south line will span from Talin to Warsaw, the second west-east from Klaipeda to Pskov. With quite a bit of these lines already existing, mainly from Kaunas to other major cities, they are only going to undergo slight improvements. Smaller lines are planned to be built in Poland and expanded throughout northeastern Lithuania around Tartu and Pskov. Other infrastructural projects are still continuing, with most of central Lithuania up to Riga and Lida having medium-to-high quality roads. Vilnius underwent a huge replanning with whole blocks being demolished and rebuilt to use the space more efficiently, improve drainage system and decrease fire-hazard. With rapidly growing population, many new suburbs are popping up, but all of them are under strict control in order to maintain established order. Same thing is going on in other major cities. In last several years number of people increased by nearly a million, bringing the country to a total of 17 million.

Zygimantas receives a very interesting gift for his birthday, flight on a steam powered airship. Although privately funded by group of interested intelligencia, technology is quite advanced, seeing as the airship is built on example of other european prototypes. King decides to give more public attention to this idea and establishes Academy of Aeronautics of his name near his palace in Vilnius. This academy isn't big and popular, but is meant to bring people working on any aircraft technology together  so they could share ideas. Its placing isn't coincidental, as Zygimantas proudly invites his guests, especially army officers and successful business people, to look at these things in hopes of bringing more people to this idea.

Second huge conscription brings another 80 thousand men into the army, which, for now, will stay at 200 thousand men total. First shipment of new lithuanian artillery pieces and shells reach the army. More workshops are established to provide armament and ammunition for the navy, Ministry of war continues buying the equipment to fill the reserves with replacement equipment and supplies.

Qing Dynasty: Due to recent military humiliations, most people reach a consensus that in order to protect itself against the West, it must adopt Western military technology and armaments. China will begin to also emulate the West in their economic achievements in a similar way to Japan. Empress Dowager Cixi decides to begin the process of industrialisation, building a dozen textile factories in Beijing. She also continues the Self-Strengthening movement in an attempt to modernise Chinese armies so that they will avoid further territorial losses. We enter the war in East Asia on the side of our close ally Korea, deploying some 100,000 troops to South Jeolla. We warn Russia to stay out of the conflict and instead try to stop Japanese expansion.  

Liechtenstein: We continue to expand our military, begin to recruit more troops as well and economy to expand too. We decide to build more bunkers and fortresses for defensive fortifications. Although the weapons will be developed in one of the factories, thus the tanks and vehicles will be planned in future. Population grows up at Vaduz.

Japan: Japanese forces continue to puah into Manchuria and establish a foot hold over Northern Formosa. Troops engage the decaying qing forces outside Mukden.  The Imperial Navy is sent to blockade Chinese movements in the Yellow Sea and along the major sea routes along the Chinese coastline. The oligarchy continues to push forward the modernization of the imperial forces following through with conscription and the development of a domestic arms industry.Production of breech loaded rifles based on the OTL Mauser 72 model begins after a prototype is developed by Arisaka co. in Osaka. Naval expansion begins as the government determines that it is necesary for the future security of the nation, three ironclad ships are commissioned to help with the war efforts industrialization continues, particularly in the textile and heavy industry areas, Osaka, Kyoto, Edo, and Kyushu are the areas that benifit the most from growing trade with the we.st. Efforts to bring the Ryukyu islands and Hokkiado into the national centre continue as settlement of the islands continue. Kyoto offers beijing a peace hand over Taiwan and cede the rights to Manchuria to the Japanese Empire, along with recognizing Korea as a part of the Japanese Sphere of influence.

  • China Diplomacy: We accept

Myanmar begins building up it's armed forces, updating in the latest technology, and moving to become a regional power.

Louisianne: Louisianne continues to funnel money to the Brazilian Imperialists,hoping to create a strategic ally in the region. The military continues to grow, with 400,000 men in the military. The population grows to 64 million and rising. In an effort to keep expansionism a top priority, Louisanne declares war against Appalachia, and mobilizes her forces into the territory. We again ask Iberia to sell us their North American colonies, promising to respect the Iberian Empire in East Asia. We also continue to expand trade with Japan, as China continues to decline. We request an NAP and trade agreement with France.

Naples: Development of our arm forceforces begins with around 80,000 currently serving in our standing armies, along with this modernisation of our navy takes place with the construction of three state-of-the-art battleships which will be completed in 1882. We begin to fund pro unification groups around italy to support ouour cause for a United state.

  • Neapolitan Africa: Infrastructure is improved to allow for better transportation of goods. A colonial militia is created and stands at 5000 men. Italian immigration to the colony is encouraged.

Brazil: Following the surrender of the Republic of the Amazon and the end of the Brazilian Civil War, we immediately execute the rebel leaders and we send a majority of our national army to the former rebelling province in order to suppress any tensions left in the area. We offer an alliance and multiple trade agreements to Louisianne due to their tremendous help in the Civil War. We begin to rebuild infrastructure that was damaged during the war, and we begin the slow conversion to democracy by allowing freedom of the press in the country.

  • Louisianne accepts and begins to aid in reconstruction.

Iberia: With the population standing at 20 million, we begin to increase our militaries size, which is already 400,000 in number. We begin construction of two modern battleships as well as several destroyers and other boats. Economy improves. We agree to sell louisianne Florida for 17 million dollars. We also accept Lithuania's trade agreement and Germany's alliance offer. We ask Britannia for an alliance.

  • Britannian Diplomacy: Britannia could use more allies, hence we agree. 

Britannia: Military buildup and economic expansion continue, as well as industralisation across the Empire. Construction continues on various water treatment plants, and at the same time, investment begins on various new technologies for our military, such as the latest machine gun model proposed by Thomas J. Rowling, although at first he is rejected, albeit after a few months is later considered. Research on such weapons begins, but the first prototype is not expected until 1882 at earliest. Meanwhile, our Navy begins a period of buildup in an attempt to compete with the Louisianne Navy, albeit in a friendly manner. In military news, the Britannian Royal Armed Forces continue heavy fighting against South Afrikan rebel forces, and begin some minor skirmishes near Boer-inhabited areas. 

Korea: Plans to modernise and industrialise continue to be made. The military campaign against China continues.

Romania: We expand our economy, infrastructure, etc. We begin the industrialization of our nation. We want to make trade agreemenrs with Austria. We promote propaganda that Serbia is oppressing minorities in Vojvodina and Timok. We create autonomous regions for German, Szekler and Hungarian people. We promote immigration to us, especially in the Caucasus and in the Trebizond Vilayit, warning of the Ottoman tendency to radical Islam.

1879Edit

No mod events as of now.

Qing Dynasty: Empress Dowager Cixi continues the process of industrialisation, building a dozen textile factories in Beijing. We also open more coastal cities to trade. We begin to try to modernise our army and weak navy. We grant Japan interests to Manchuria and allow them to deploy troops there. We also let of Taiwan. We recognise Korea to be in the Japanese sphere of influence. We secretly try to form an anti-Japanese coalition with Russia.

  • Russian Dip: We would accept your alliance if we gain control of North Korea and can have Japan after defeated.
  • one minute you are willing to go to war with china, and the next you are looking to go to war with Japan, you are incoherent in your policies, also Russia at this point in time you would have a larger interest in taking partsof china rather then korea or japan which you aren't even connected to. also keep in mind that russia has a lot more problems. With Blood and Iron (talk) 14:18, November 2nd, 2015 (UTC)
  • Although I think that Russia can flip flop (granted it should face the diplomatic costs), you should be wary of making enemies with the current state of European Affiars being largely Anti-Russian.
  • Chinese Dip: Northern Korea is in the hands of the Japanese. We should try to modernise and challenge the Japanese later in the century.

Persia begins building up it's armed forces, and begins looking into the very best in new military technology. New, more advanced rifles are introduced, and the army is trained in their use. New cannons and other military weapons are also introduced, and the Sultan of Persia begins to slowly open up to the west. However, he will not tolerate Western influence in the slightest. He also sends a message in secret to the Ottomans and Turkmens, discussing the possibility of an alliance against Russia, with the goal of freeing Muslims under the rule of the Tsar.

  • Lithuanian Dip: Seeing a build up in Persian forces, we extend our offer of anti-russian coalition to also include Persia. (current members are Lithuania, Romania, Ottoman Empire and Turkmen Federation)
  • Turkestan: Offers a separate, additional alliance to Persia.
  • Persia accepts both.

Liechtenstein: We recruit 100 troops, the buildings start to built as economy expands for more solid incomes. Factories begins to building. Some cannons and fortresses will be planned. The industrial buildings expand. The modernization of the buildings should be planned as we militarise more troops.

Netherlands: Naval buildup continues, with respectable progress on the first of the navy's new battleships. We hope to reach an additional five battleships by 1900. The mainland continues undergoing industrialization, and investment into local businesses begins. We begin larger recruitment for the army, with hopes to acquire 75,000 troops by 1885.

  • Dutch Guinea (West Africa): We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and begin constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruitment for a local militia begins.
  • Dutch East Indies (Including Philippines): We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and begin constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruitment for a local militia begins.
  • Dutch Somalia: We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and begin constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruitment for a local militia begins.
  • Dutch Suriname (South America): We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and begin constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruitment for a local militia begins.

Lithuania: New Seimas is elected this year and, for the first time, it includes representatives from Poland who have rights to vote on any matters. More ships are completed and commissioned into the navy, which is already intensively patrolling the Baltic Sea. Escorted trading parties start sailing all the way to Asia and South America but having ties with Germany, Ottomans and Iberia, our traders mostly go to ports of those countries to stay safe.  

Railroad project is going well, most of the rail lines that existed before didn't need too much attention so work on new ones is getting more resources than previously expected. Infrastructure work in Warsaw area is finished, minor projects are still going on in the rest of Poland. With increasing trade and demand for workforce in ports, previously quite small cities on the coast like Talin and Konigsberg (Kaliningrad) start growing, bringing more attention and investments towards their developement.

Ministry of War continues expanding its military industry and reserves. Army adopts policy of quick and flexible rotation to have more available manpower at any given time. 200 thousand men professional army is active at any time, irregular army has four "waves" of soldiers at any time, waves come in and go out each six months and have no defined size.

With wide network of allies, reasonable army, sufficient navy and plenty of resources, Zygimantas is thinking about helping Ottomans in their war against smaller Balkan powers. After intensive work with government and with approval of Seimas, Lithuania declares war on Greece. Throughout several months we move 150,000 men to Anatolia (I assume I can since I am allied with Ottomans) and invade Crete (algo please), navy is blockading greek ports to prevent any reinforcements.

  • Louisianne offers a hand of friendship to Lithuania and offers a trade agreement.
  • Lithuania is glad to make closer ties with Louisianne and accepts the trade agreement. Since both of our nations are developing naval powers, we offer Louisianne several joint design projects.

Louisianne asks to purchase Britanic Canada for 15 million pounds. Naval expansion continues. Full turn next turn.

  • Turkestan , or the Turkmen Federation, works on building up its military, trying to meld its vast numbers of irregular light cavalry with its smaller Western-style force. Many troops are retrained as dragoons, able to fight on foot and horseback, and modern artillery is procured form the West for siege operations. Most khans train their household troops to fight in Western style. Firearms are widely distributed, and facilities are established to manufacture them. The Assembly of Khans elects a new Khagan this, a Zoroastrian Kazakh named Janybek, whose first major foreign policy action is to request inclusion into the anti-Russian coalition established by Lithuania. Close ties with the repressed Siberians and Tatars in Russia are maintained. An alliance is offered to both Japan and China.
    • ​Japan Dip: Japan agrees to a defence pact in case of russian aggression
    • Lithuanian Dip: We will gladly include Turkmen Federation into our coalition.
  • Japan: Japanese forces continue to push into Manchuria and establish a foot hold over Northern Formosa. Troops engage the decaying qing forces outside mukden.  The Imperial Navy is sent to blockade Chinese movements in the Yellow Sea and along the major sea routes along the chinese coastline. The oligarchy continues to push forward the modernization of the imperial forces following through with conscritpion and the development of a domestic arms industry.Production of breechloaded rifles based on the OTL Mauser 72 model begins after a prototype is developed by Arisaka co. in Osaka.

Efforts to bring the Ryukyu islands and Hokkiado into the national centre continue as settlement of the islands continue. Kyoto offers beijing a peace hand over Taiwan and cede the rights to Manchuria to the Japanese Empire, along with recognizing Korea as a part of the Japanese Sphere of influence. The japanese look for possible allies tocounter russian or chinese aggression loking to Germany and Lithuania as potential allies.
  • QING DYNASTY DIP: What the fuck, I thought we already had peace. Look at my turn. "We grant Japan interests to Manchuria and allow them to deploy troops there. We also let of Taiwan. We recognise Korea to be in the Japanese sphere of influence." And you're metagaming.
    • Lithuanian Dip: With Turkmen Federation now in Anti-Russian coalition, we invite Japan to join it.

Korea: Plans to modernise and industrialise continue to be made. Meanwhile the military is built up.

Britannia: Military buildup and economic expansion continue, as well as industralisation across the Empire. Construction continues on various water treatment plants, and at the same time, investment continues on various new technologies for our military, such as the latest machine gun model proposed by Thomas J. Rowling, which has been nicknamed the "Rowling Gun" since research first began last year. Meanwhile, our Navy begins a period of buildup in an attempt to compete with the Louisianne Navy, albeit in a friendly manner. In military news, the Britannian Royal Armed Forces continue heavy fighting against South Afrikan rebel forces, and begin some minor skirmishes near Boer-inhabited areas. We also decide to join the First Balkan War on the side of the Balkan Allies, hoping to eventually splinter the Ottoman Empire. We begin our offensive on multiple fronts from our Middle Eastern territory and simultaneously deploying troops to the Balkans region to help the Balkan Allies. In diplomatic news, we agree to the sale of Canada to Louisianne, hoping to improve diplomatic relations between the two nations. 

  • Qing Dynasty Dip: We secretly propose an anti-Japanese alliance despite your participation in previous humiliations. In turn we will help you expand your influence in Southeast Asia.
  • Britannian Diplomacy: Britannia accepts the proposal, noting the fact that it is time for reconciliation, and 
  • Uhm, IIRC Edge said something about machine guns on chat. So I'm posting this so he sees it.
  • I know, I remember. But this is just a prototype. I can share the research with Lousianne later. 

1880Edit

Algo for the Balkan Wars coming up.

Lithuania: With huge and unexpected income from new trade agreement navy manages to significantly speed up the production of warships. Huge portion of the existing navy is now in eastern Mediterranean but traders use routes near friendly countries to stay safe. Railroad project continues and few other lines are added to it. Big part of Poland is already rebuilt, now only long process of improving roads and overall communications remains. With elections behind and pretty much nothing to worry about, war in Greece is in the center of attention. Some people are unhappy about Zygimantas going to war, but with his success in Poland, most people tend to trust him and give him a chance. Men fight well in Crete and don't disappoint their King, unfortunately, Greeks manage to hold off and the invasion fails. Ministry of war is now considering other options. Army is reinforced to make up for the losses and 150 thousand men will be sent to directly assist Ottomans in their counter offensive actions.

Germany: The German Empire, under the rule of 34 year old Wilhelm III, offers an alliance to Japan. It supports  the wars of it's colonies with supplies. It begins researching a new kind of weapon, one that can fire many bullets in succession.

It sends 1.500 men, passing around that piece of British Congo by boat, to attack the state. This invasion is expected to go well due to technological dominance.
  • 'Sudwest-Afrika: Work is done on the infrastructure. Thom Rietlir is appointed Kleinkanzler for Sudwest-Afrika. Sudwest-Afrika declares war upon Angola, sending 1.000 men into the state with the goal of bringing it into the empire(enfrocing hegemony). 'This invasion is expected to go well due to technological dominance.

Liechtenstein: About 250 troops been recruited so far in the military, we plan to expand and have more recruitable soldiers. It could research some weapons to be given for Liechtenstein troops. We gain more economy and build more buildings to have more population in order to have more troops.

  • Japan: The oligarchy continues to push forward the modernization of the imperial forces following through with conscritpion and the development of a domestic arms industry.Production of breechloaded rifles based on the OTL Mauser 72 model begins after a prototype is developed by Arisaka co. in Osaka.

Netherlands: Naval buildup continues, with the nation's first battleship reaching completion at the end of the year. Projections have not changed since the project begun. Seeing how things were beginning to change, the Netherlands offers a trade agreement with Louisianne. The mainland continues its industrialization, and military continues recruitment.

  • Dutch Guinea (West Africa): We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and continue constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruitment for a local militia continues.

Korea: Plans to modernise and industrialise continue to be made. Meanwhile the military is built up.

Persia continues modernising and building up it's military, in preparation for the against Russia. We begin researching the latest in military technology. Noting the Ottomans are losing the Balkan war, we decide to support them economically, while at the same time reading an army of about 50,000 men to help them by preventing the Balkan nations from pushing any further into Ottoman land. These troops are sent in right away.

Louisanne Continues to develop her navy, rapidly growing as one of the worlds leading most naval powers.

1881Edit

Germany: The German Empire, under the rule of 34 year old Wilhelm III. It supports  the wars of it's colonies with supplies. It begins researching a new kind of weapon, one that can fire many bullets in succession. The German Empire requests that Lithuania, Britannia, Greece, Lousianne and Jerusalem attend the Conference of Bremen, a conference to discuss peace terms for the ongoing war and to supervise the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

  • 'Kamerun-'Kongo: Work is done on the infrastructure. Johann Mircheit is appointed Kleinkanzler for Kamerun-Kongo. Kamerun-Kongo aids it's sister state, Sudwest-Afrika, in it's war against Angola.

  • Iberia: We build up our militaries size and technology, improving both the size and technological capability. We focus mostly on our army, but also improve our navy, building two new battleships called the Toledo and the Barcelona, and we plan to build fleets around both these ships. We also improve our economy, focusing mostly on industry. Additionally, we ask for a formal alliance with Brittania.
  • Turkestan works on building up its military, trying to meld its vast numbers of irregular light cavalry with its smaller Western-style force. Many troops are retrained as dragoons, able to fight on foot and horseback, and modern artillery is procured form the West for siege operations. Most khans train their household troops to fight in Western style. Firearms are widely distributed, and facilities are established to manufacture them.

1882Edit

Korea: Plans to modernise and industrialise continue to be made. Meanwhile the military is built up.

Liechtenstein: We built up military, recruit 400 troops and militarise them. The population grows slowly, the constructed buildings is planned to built as our development of the weapon could begin. So far the roads have been built as well some cavarly. Our forces train to get better strength for the siege.

Netherlands: Naval buildup continues, with the nation's second battleship entering at the beginning of the year. Projections have not changed since the project begun. The mainland continues its industrialization, and military continues recruitment.

  • Dutch Guinea (West Africa): We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and continue constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruiting for a local militia continues.

Reorganization of Formosa begins with the territory now a part of the Japanese Empire it is recognized as the first Japanese colony, the capital is renamed  Taihoku, and plans to settle it begin, ground work to build a naval nase and railroad in the north are also laid out. The japanese look for possible allies tocounter russian or chinese aggression loking to Germany and Lithuania as potential allies. gattling gun production begins. PLans to integrate Korea into the Japanese economic system begin. 

Louisianne: Louisianne continues to funnel money to the Brazilian Imperialists,hoping to create a strategic ally in the region. The military continues to grow, with 400,000 men in the military. The population grows to 64 million and rising. In an effort to keep expansionism a top priority, Louisanne declares war against Applachia, and mobilizes her forces into the territory. We again ask Iberia to sell us their North American colonies, promising to respect the Iberian Empire in East Asia. We also continue to expand trade with Japan, as China continues to decline. We request an NAP and trade agreement with France.

1883Edit

Korea: Plans to modernise and industrialise continue to be made. Meanwhile the military is built up.

Liechtesntein: We militarise the troops and build more buildings, also we build more caravans and buildings as well. The military expands and more forces recruiting in. Population grows at Vaduz.

Lithuania: After a big loss in the Balkans and fall of the Ottomans, Zygimantas kept his head down for a while. By this time our economy is very stable, population grew to about 19 million. Trade by sea became the dominant sector in 1881 but it kept growing, so did the navy. All railroad projects were finished for quite a while now. Poland is, by this time, a fully "modernised" region, as a result Warsaw grew considerably in several years, as did other polish cities.

As Ottomans are our allies, we still haven't withdrawn our troops from there, and we will not do it until proper conditions are decided by all parties involved and European powers. With naval presence in Mediterranean to provide support to our troops, we advocate for Egypt as our protectorate and establishment of a new Turkish state from Asian posessions of Ottomans except Arabia.

Persia notes the collapse of the Ottoman Empire with worry, and thus, troops are sent into Armenia, Kurdistan, and parts of Georgia. This is to protect those cultures that have ties to Persia, and the troops begin restoring order in several places, notably Armenia, where, given the close relations Armenia has had with Persia for centuries, plans are made to create an independent Armenia state, with the goal of protecting the Armenian people.

  • German Dip: Germany warns Persia to stay out of the former Ottoman lands. The Conference of Bremen has had it's outcome. This Persian invasion is criminal and thus Germany suggests the Persia removes it's troops from Armenia, unless it prefers to remove a foot out of it's ass.
  • Persia would like to point out that it has concerns in the collapse of the Ottomans as well, and s simply ensuring the protection of nations that have has historically close ties to Persia, such as Armenia, and Georgia, which has had several cultural exchanges with Persia in the past. Persia would also like to point out it's desire to create an independent Armenia, Georgia, and Kurdistan free from European influence. Is that too much to ask?
  • German Dip: It is. Peace was made and Armenia, Georgia and Kurdistan are under Turkish rule still. Persia is once more asked to leave the Ottoman Empire.

Netherlands: Naval buildup continues. The mainland continues its industrialization, and military continues recruitment.

  • Dutch Guinea (West Africa): We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and continue constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruitment for a local militia continues.
  • Dutch East Indies (Including Philippines): We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and continue constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruiting for a local militia continues.
  • Dutch Somalia: We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and continue constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruitment for a local militia continues.
  • Dutch Suriname (South America): We continue industrializing in industries related to the products of the region, and continue constructing ports to house large naval vessels. Recruitment for a local militia continues.

Andorra: Instead of focusing on military like the world around us, we focus most our defence and military budget on education and tourism.

Myanmar: We are trying to modernize our country, building factories, modernizing our agriculture, but a new event has occurred. A Greater Myanmar Empire was declared, with the Pan Asian goal of getting the entire Southeast Asia to join.

Peru: We pump milions of dollars into modernization, improving roads and bridges, building power plants and factories. We recruit 20,000 new soldiers and produce 7500 new tanks. We seek a trade deal with the neighbouring countries of Bolivia and Chile.
