do youw ant any help in squishing the terrorist groups?
I'm reluctant to accept any help at this moment in time as we consider it a domestic issue, even if such a domestic issue has spilled into neighboring countries...

( in all honestly you shouldn't have ANY, unless you are oppressing someone)

The Catholics feel oppressed because we've split the previously-dominant Church from the State. In all truth, if their brand of terrorism keeps up, we may have to start cracking down on religious freedom. But we can keep up for a while, just by extending the curfew and martial law a little bit at a time.

The Malvinas issue is a bit different, because it wouldn't be any specific groups carrying out the acts of terrorism, but just individuals and small clusters who don't like the state of affairs at the moment. If we lose this UN vote, there's going to be trouble in J.D. City!

Then there are Uruguayan and Paraguayan nationalists, who feel their sovereignty is threatened by Peróntine forces stationed in their country.

So yeah, there's quite a bit of discontent in my territory!

well the only 'terrorist' group, if you can call it that are the twitards. fortunately they are smart enough to not go against Byzantium.

honestly you shouldn't oppress the Catholics. i nearly had a &%$^ing CRUSADE on my head when there was too few Catholics in Byzantium to warrant a church. i don't even believe in churches! all worships should be private and at home!

sorry for the rant. im still miffed. don't oppress Catholics. or anyone else for that matter.

going down the fascism root is a good idea actually, but be sure to return to democracy when things settle down.

In light of these recent terrorist attacks, Perónia has decided to increase its military to 600,000 troops.

200,000 of these troops have been involved in a mass training exercise - an amphibious invasion of southern-Patagonia. This was successful, kinda, although several flaws within our current logistics system were found. 50,000 more troops have been poured into Paraguay and Uruguay, and 25,000 more troops in the capital. The city of Cordoba in northern Perónia has been placed under martial law, and troops 3,000 troops have moved up to the Bolivian and Brazilian borders, in an attempt to stem off any possible gaps for insurgents in those lands.

Our forces are stretched pretty thin at this moment in time, and we may have to increase our forces by a further 200,000. Luckily, a large enough portion of our population is unemployed! Though we may have to start drafting out of our armaments industry pretty soon...

Emperor Choxorn sends heartfelt sympathies to the Emperor of Carthagistan, and hopes he makes it through these troubles. We also send the world's largest pie.

We have some problems with religious terrorists, too- stupid Muslims and Hindus don't know how to get along with each other. So, we have a totally-not-secret police force and an uber-leet counter-terrorist agency to stop them from blowing each other up.

Congress applauds Byzantium on its wise decision and dons the NO SPARKLING MORONIC VAMPIRES FOR YOU, ***** Act, which banned Twilight. We urge that the Californian Republic, who has control over Arizona, which means they have Meyer, to hang her for treason. Meanwhile, her parents, living in Conn., were hanged for treason against the state for creating such a monster.

The act also gives free therapy for all fangirls and the extremely rare fanboys. Speaker of the House, Omega, a HUGE Mega Man and Civilization fan, put down his NES controller and mouse, and spoke "Well, it was kinda necessary to maintain our dignity. Without it, it would eat up our female teens who grew up on it, influencing millions of their children, and so on and so on. We ended the plague before it ends. A Twitard, while being literally dragged by her parents to her first therapy session, said "Well, Omega is a huge Mega Man fan, and he doesn't get therapy". When that now-famous line went to him, he responded coldy "I'm gonna Metal Blade you to death".

Omega is flattered by Barabas IV, butn turns down the medal, due to the U.S. Constitution forbidding royal titles.

We believe in freedom of press and such here so we will NOT ban the book, however stupid it may be.

In recent news, The New Twilight Movie, filmed and produced in Israel (because everyone else it banning it) has made over 700 million dollars in revenue. The book and merchandise tied along with this movie have also been selling in record numbers, boosting the Israeli economy.

With this extra money in our coffers, we put it aside until the UN ratifies our claims on Saudi Arabia and Sudan, for a modernization program in those regions. (it should be today if not tomorrow).

EDIT: We also send our condolences to our ally Carthagistan.

And we condemn the terrorism in Peronia, and are willing to back and help Peronia to stop this problem, in any way, shape, or form.

The Modernization Act of Saudi Arabia and Sudan goes into effect. Using the surplus of money from The Twilight craze, we enact massive modernization programs in Saudi Arabia and Sudan. And just like the Iranian one, this will include highways, railroads, infrastructure, manufacturing buildings, factories, oil wells, airports, standard defenses, etc.

Unlike the Iranian one, I will not put a time limit on these, because these aren't being built with money from our defenses. (btw, the Iranian one will expire on Friday, and my army will go back to it's regular size of 700,000 men).

My shares from this profit are going towards developing a new state-of-the-art fighter jet. Faster than sound (of course), and armed to the teeth. And maybe if enough money is made, I can develop a new top-of-the-line aircraft carrier, bigger and better than any before it!... :hmm:

ok two things: 700 million dollars isnt enough to modernize a peice of crap country of Sudan and a pretty much modernized to the limit saudi arabia.

two: arent you expanding too much too fast? you have 7 million Jewish people with Judaism and more than 100 million Islamic Arabs. how will you maintain control? one hint: you cant. period. either you have to change into a Caliphate or you lose control of most of your nation if the Arabs rebel. with 700,000 men, you'll just fall almost instantly. even if you hole up in your core area ( which i think is Israel, West Bank and Gaza) you'll still fall.

You don't seem to understand how economics work. I don't get 700 million dollars. That's how much the movie made (solely). I collect the taxes from the tickets, food, and all associated merchandise (that's what the tax at the store is). And with this craze came a massive surplus of tax money, as apposed to the regular amount I make. And that tax surplus is enough to modernize both of these countries.

Once again, I am NOT a medieval theocracy like you are. There is no "official" religion, we are a secular state. Who cares is 70% of my country is Muslim? Just because they're Muslim doesn't mean they have to "declare a Jihad" on anyone that comes in contact with them.

Due to the Pirates' recent defeat at the outer banks, funds from its recently acquired second- and first-world territories, as well as more money from selling its WWII planes (from first post: even a few WWII planes including a B-17 and several Zeros) to a historical preservation society, the Pirates will be modernizing its armed forces, especially the air force. Several new warships are expected to be launched in the near future, and dozens of more warplanes and bombers will be purchased.

This timeline is totally separate from the IRL one. In fact there is no timeline here, no history, everyone just popped into existence a week ago. So these colonial actions of the imperialistic era (which led to the slippery slope to the extremists/terrorists) never happened.

my industry is pretty much everywhere in major cities. in short i can outproduce you. i have 16 major cities in all. Constantinople and Ankara are the largest.

no. your not worth the effort. Israels area is too small to be have any meaningful impact.

What choxorn said.

wrong. did you miss my big fonts? i activated God mode and had the entire nation copied and brought there. every single blade of grass. if history states that there isnt that many Catholics (would YOU live in a country that had a past history of massacring your own religious/ethnic group?) then there isn't that many. i kept the churches. it was 1453 you know, not everyone was mature, and the emperor wasn't my ancestor.

Yes.

well fine, but my navy is still pretty shorthanded. the final navy stats are this: 9 Aircraft carriers, 36 destroyers, no battleships, ( i read the history of why the battleship got obsolete) and 12 large support ships of various types, 38 small support ships of various types. i think that is the optimal number in defending Byzantium and her one colony.

THIS MEANS WAR.

I hope Taniciusfox doesn't mind me borrowing his template here.

Country name: The United Kingdom of Great Britain (in exile) and Canada.

Motto: None.

Army: A good, advanced military focusing mainly on armoured conflict. All troops wear the redcoat uniform for the sheer purpose of nostalgia. The main tank of the British Army is the Challenger II.

Air force: Average, as most of it is focused on the Fleet Air Arm.

Navy: Large and advanced (we're the British, remember), with thirteen supercarriers and a good air arm.

Capital: Ottowa.

Development rating: First World

Economic style: Somewhat Socialist.

Political setup: Consitiutional Monarchy.

Social policy: All people are created equal. There are no restrictions to the armed services.

Foreign policy: We will be polite to those who are polite to us, and shall shun those who shun us. Contrary to what the name may suggest, we have no quarrel with the Marian Empire.

I take all of Canada not yet claimed, or, if that's too large, Eastern Canada.

your declaring war cause i wanted Canadian humor? i don't even think ill understand British humor.

your tactics are flawed. you cant just waltz to the capital and hope you'll win. the british tried that in WWI and lost badly. plus this is the core area. you'd be insane to take it.

Put it this way - you are a leader who constantly rewrites his own history, claiming that he is actually changing the timeline in doing so, all the while oppressing the citizenry, telling them what they can and can't do, and snuffing our culture. And no, I'm not stupid enough to land in Constantinople herself, but my fleets are heading in that general direction.

Official Announcement of the Empire of Carthagistan

http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m51/Grenadier_539/CarthageFlag.png

I apologize in advance for the rather serious tone of this post.

DISSOLUTION OF THE BYZANTINE REPUBLIC

Carthagistan acknowledges the dissolution of the Byzantine Republic. The Empire of Carthagistan asserts its rights as one of the two successor states of the Byzantine Republic. The former Byzantine Navy has been welcomed to Carthagistan at the port of Tunis and will be incorporated into our own naval forces. Citizens of Byzantium have the right to a Carthagistani citizenship and passport and to immigrate to Carthagistan.

The settlement of Byzantine territory between Carthagistan and Israel must be decided in view of our respective territorial claims in Australia (see below)

ULTIMATUM TO THE ISRAELI REPUBLIC

If Israel continues to assert its claims over South Australia and Victoria the Carthagistani-Israeli Alliance will be rendered null and void.

Carthagistan will surrender all its rights to Byzantine territory if Israel surrender all its claims in Australia.

All Byzantine territory will be turned over to the Israeli Republic should they renounce all their claims in Australia.

In related news, the Empire of Carthagistan has just issued a Level 2 Mobilization Order. All active and reserve military personnel are to report to their HQs. All sections of the Armed Forces are to be at their maximum war readiness.

There are 5 levels of Mobilization in Carthagistan. Level 1 refers to heightened readiness in response to civil unrest, international tension or elevated terrorist threat. Level 2 is preparation for a full-scale war. Level 3 mobilization is only issued in a war. Level 4 is a state of total war. At level 5 all citizens will be called on to defend the homeland.

More or less, yes. I still need to add the claims, but chances are it'll stay the same. I think Israel will be happy to give you all those states now that you've defected from the American side.

Alright then, you can have New South Wales. (After all, that means I don't have to have Sydney.)

My first decision will be to destroy Sydney save for its city center and resettle its inhabitants. I'll let Camikaze stay if he ask nicely.

After finally reading through all these threads, I'm going to join now:

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a281/stylesrj/Other/Galava/ImperiumMap.png
(It's that bright yellow spot somewhere in the middle of South America...)

Country name: Nethoslan

Motto: "Strike the Earth!"

Population: 15 million

Army: 20k Spearmen. Each carries an AK-74 assault rifle and have shields and armour made of a strong titanium/kevlar alloy.
When in combat, they primarily use their assault rifles at long range, and their spears at close range, sometimes even affixed with high power explosives in order to burst down armoured divisions.

Many of the outlying towns and fortresses however rely on a milita-based army though, armed with whatever weapons they can use. The militia is taught to be resourceful and resistant to enemy attacks, using hit and run tactics to destroy their foes rather than frontal assault.

Air force: Roughly 100 Giant Beetles (Attack bombers. Insect chitin is pretty damned tough on its own, now imagine it enlarged) and 200 Giant Eagles (recon.) There was a genetics program a while back that tried to increase the size of insects and birds, with some success, but in low numbers. It will take several more years before a literal swarm or flock can be made in sufficient numbers for a full replacement of the airforce.
Nethoslan does have several conventional fighter aircraft, mostly imported from other countries who could sell their aircraft to such a nation (est. 500 fighters of various designs and types)

Navy: Landlocked. So no ships. Not even on loan.

Capital: Elathu Asada

Development rating: First World

Economic style: Many outlying fortresses and towns rely on a medieval-like barter system, but in more centralised areas, there is a capitalistic society going on with people doing honest work for honest pay (while the rich sit back and enjoy their amassed wealth)

Economy and Industry: Efforts have been made to bring outlying areas into the folds of Capitalism, but many can get complacent with their bartering model.
There is a small, yet strong metal industry in the central areas of Nethoslan, where titanium ores are dug up and processed into titanium constructions.
Food is mostly grown on open land where it can be grown and in experimental hydroponics farms.

The economy is relatively stable, after having just come out of a major recession that cost many Nethoslanian citizens their jobs.

Primary technologies rely mostly on genetics research for better food and people and on designing new and effective defenses, such as armour.

Political setup: Democracy. Leaders are elected every three years by the people. A leader can take as many terms as they like, as long as the people are willing to accept them in the elections. Outlying areas have a similar system for their politicians and representatives, with larger areas having more people to send.

Social policy: Everyone is treated fairly, and anyone can do any job as long as they have the skills. Freedom of speech and the press are prevalent and recently the current government repealed the restrictions on public nudity and drug laws, making them easier to purchase in your local pharmacy and seriously cuts into the profits of the black markets for such things.

Foreign policy: Import and export trades are quite welcome, but they mostly are done by cargo plane or convoy of ground-based vehicles due to a lack of a seaport. Nethoslanians are not willing to attack other countries, but will defend themselves if needed.

How's that?
Yes, that means we can have :spear:
Although in this case, it's justified. C-4 on a stick :)

except that it teleports to an unknown time. the Byzantine Republic has been working on this since 1994. trust me its more reliable than yours ever will.

its not a really good siege engine you know, its barely mobile, requires a fair amount of uranium to keep it powered, and the recharge cycle takes hours, not suitable for hilly terrian and it can be destroyed with an equal amount of energy acting on it. i dont know what produces one gigawatt of energy.

you can mount it on a shuttle or something and it'll be a beam weapon. a bad one.

A directed energy weapon that uses chain reactions? Like the Proton Collider?

Nethoslan reports an accident in one of the bio labs. A large swarm of man-sized beetles had escaped and flew northwards. The government is urging that if you see such insects to capture them alive and send them back to Nethoslan. If you have to kill them, be careful as their armoured carapaces can withstand small arms fire. Corpses are to be brought back to Nethoslan as well for autopsies.

Time is of the essence as they may start breeding and become a larger, uncontrolled swarm that could destroy crops and even people directly, making them more deadly than locusts!

The great Annex approves of your decision. As he has already finished occupying Poland and thus has nothing better to do, he has been appointed messenger by TaniciusFox, who is currently suffering from some degree of insanity, hence his inability to use capital letters!

He would like Annex to say not to start the next game, please, though they are of course free to start a different NES if they so wish. If they do start a new game however, he wishes them luck in the administrative burden, and hopes they will not commit suicide by curling iron.

He would also like for Annex to point out that there are several current ideas planned for the working title Imperium Offtopicum 2.0 - an Earth map meant to be more fair, or a fantasy map meant to be realistic, but at the same time lessen limits to an extent.

-A barebones economic system
-Economic strength would be tied to how much of an army can be bought/maintained
-More applications of naval and air strength
-One's military options would affect one's rate of expansion
-There would be infrastructure and technology areas that one could level up in as one gained money, and these would increase economic strength(infra), or military power(tech).
-The UN would be completely differently and mostly without teeth, preventing - for the most part - alliance-line voting/claims spam
