GoobNES02: The Cold Civil War [Preview Thread]

Hello and Welcome to the Preview Thread for ...

GoobNES02: The Cold Civil War!

This is my second NES, my first being GoobNES01: Fallout.

INDEX


Me and my NESing Style

Spoiler for Me and My NESing Style:


I am just going to briefly introduce myself, give you guys a snapshot of who I am, and how I like to Mod NESes. The blue bit in my Sig gives more info about me.

I am a 19 year old Gay College Student on Summer Break. I am working full time, and dating, but I will have time for NESing as well. Politically, I am Conservative. I vote Conservative and believe in Conservative values (with exceptions, of course). I am, of course, Canadian. I am going to do my best not to let my biases ruin this NES. In real life, I am very pro-Capitalist, and believe that Communism is wrong, as well as Socialism. I am deeply patriotic to my country, Canada, but I am going to do my best to not let that cloud my vision, so to speak. In the past, I have been pretty good about separating my real life beliefs, and staying neutral while Modding NESes, so I obviously will try and continue that.

One thing that is very important to know about me is that I like feedback. I generally assume that everything is going just fine, unless told otherwise. If you guys don't tell me what you like about this NES, what you don't like, if I am being biased, etc, then I cannot change. I do listen to feedback, and I value it. You can give feedback in this thread, through E-mail or PM (in my Profile), or MSN (also in profile).

I like to Update once a week. My days off this summer are generally going to be Sunday and Monday, so I obviously will be doing updates on those days. I realize that many of you have other committments, school, family, work, and so do I. I don't expect players to put a major committment to this. 1 hour per day is excessive, in my opinion. It shouldn't take more then 10-15 minutes of your time, every one to two days, with perhaps a bit more time for updates. I will explain more about updates, stories, and other stuff later.


NES Backgrounds


Short Version

Spoiler for Short Version:

The is a Shorter Version of the Background to this Alhistorical NES.

At the Battle of Gettysburg, General Lee manages to defeat the Unionists, led by General Meade, and he beat them badly. This gave the Confederacy 18 months of peace, in which they were able to build up enough to stave off the Unionists, and win the Civil War. This meant that there were 2, not one, Americas in the world, one is a more left-wing Unionist one, and one is a very traditional, right-wing Confederacy where slavery still existed. They would fight again, but nothing that would significantly change any borders.

This, of course, led to some changes in the way history played out in this planet. The CSA grew to have influence and support among their neighbors in South America, and selected countries in Europe, while the USA had allies and friends in Europe, and parts of Asia. World War 1 occurred as our history books recorded. The USSR formed as in history. World War II, however, is where things got a little different. The CSA and USA had just finished fighting – again – over New Mexico. Hitler saw a golden opportunity to strike while the USA and CSA were fighting, and while Europe’s attention was elsewhere. Hitler conquered Austria, Czechoslovakia, the Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark easier in these history books. In France, well, the French were facing rebellions in Africa, so large parts of their military were overseas. Britain tried to help the Low Countries, but lost many resources doing so.

The USA got involved only after the CSA realized that their Spanish allies needed help, and called a truce. Hitler invaded Britain, and the USA was barely able to save Britain from being totally conquered. Hitler also tried to invade Spain after Franco made some diplomatic blunders, but the CSA stopped him. In Russia, German forces took Leningrad, and were barely stopped taking Moscow, only after a brutal winter, and at the cost of Moscow being ruined. Hitler was brought down in this version of history at much higher human cost, and in 1951, not 1949. History went nearly the same in the pacific, except that they managed to land a force in Northern Australia. The USA and Anzac forces destroyed them, but barely. The USA was very stretched for military forces at this time.

Now fast forward to 1965. Europe is still rebuilding. The USA and CSA have finally come to yet another truce over New Mexico. The USSR is rebuilding, under the grip of Stalin, and is exerting control over Eastern Europe, and parts of Asia. China is undergoing some troubling times, facing border wars with the USSR and India/Pakistan, a Tibetan uprising, fighting with Taiwan, and supporting weak allies like North Korea and North Vietnam. As well, it faces internal problems. Africa is being decolonized, which means virtually an entire continent is undergoing radical change. The world has fallen into the 3 Alliances, those being ITO, the International Treaty Organization lead by the USA (NATO equivalent), Comintern, lead by the USSR, and CAN, the Confederation of Allied Nations. These 3 are ideologically enemies, and are vying for control of the world. The neutrals, namely India, Switzerland, and other nations, are in the middle of this political and diplomatic war. All 3 Organizations have Nuclear Weapons, but they have yet to go to war. Recent events, such as the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Bolivian Invasion have ratcheted up tensions like the world has never seen before. Will the Cold War get hot? Who will be the victor in the American’s Civil War? That is up to you …


Detailed Version

Spoiler for Detailed Version:

This is a long, detailed version of events and history for this Alternative Historical NES.

The one thing that the Confederacy needed to survive was time. Time to organize their new nation. Time to coordinate the government. Time to allow their struggling nation to unite, get diplomatic recognition, and get its economy going. On July 2nd, 1863, General Robert Lee handed them that precious time. And gave the USA its biggest single loss in the war. Lee managed to decimate General Meade’s Army of the Potomac at the Battle of Gettysburg. Meade himself managed to escape, and perhaps 5,000 of his men. The rest fell to Lee. The exact military operations became known as the Lee Trap. This is where history changes, during the American Civil War.

The effect of this will be recorded in the history books forever, and is where our alternative history begins. Lee, having sustained minimal losses, was able to rebuild what he lost and more with what Meade’s Army left behind, getting new guns, new ammunition, food, and, most importantly, stopping the Union in its tracks. Once news of this disaster got out to the rest of the Union, the peace movement, which had been growing, burst onto the scene. This was exuberated by the fact that Lee then decided to march on Washington. The Unionist newspapers, reporting that Lee triumphed over Meade, and was advancing on Washington, are what changed the war. Unionists decided that they had enough of their young men going to die in battle, and wanted peace. The nation needed time to collect itself, to debate the next step, more war or peace, and then proceed with that. An embattled President Lincoln declared a “temporary cessation of hostilities” on September 15th, 1863, which Lee accepted, for a period of 18 months. Lee returned to Richmond a national hero, and the CSA began the process of building its nation. It had to build a proper army, get diplomatic recognition, get its economy going, as well as decide upon a Constitution, and possibly hold elections.

In those 18 months, it did that. When the declaration issued by Lincoln ended on March 15th, 1865, the Confederacy was a nation ready for war. It immediately launched 2 major invasions of the Union, who was still grappling with the “Confederate Question”. The Confederacy gained some land in Kentucky and Missouri, but it was New Mexico where the action really took place. Large armies clashed over and over. Thousands more Americans died on either side. 2 years later, with no end in side, the peace movement in the USA finally got President John Wilson elected, who negotiated a cease to hostilities with the CSA. This was a ceasefire, however, not a Peace Treaty. The '67 ceasefire, to this day, has been violated more times then any other in the world. Through the 19th century, the USA and CSA continued to fight.

They fought on the battlefield and in politics around the world. The USA had a base of allies in Europe, and worked on ensuring that they continued to be loyal. When the USA attacked the Philippines, however, that was a major turning point. The imperialist USA wanted more overseas colonies as Europe rapidly gobbled up Africa in a rush for colonization. Spain, which was losing its colonies, and feeling humiliated at this, was incensed. Spanish anger was noticed by the CSA, who managed to convince them that they would help take back the Philippines for Spain. The CSA managed to do this, and to turn Spain against the USA. The Battle of the Philippines was a bloody one. Thousands died, and the USA was barely defeated, but Spain got its colony back, and the CSA got a friend. The CSA then asked Spain and Portugal to join it in an alliance, if the CSA would help them get back more of their colonies. They agreed, and so the CSA scored Spain and Portugal as as its major allies.

Up until this point, the CSA was relatively isolated in the world. It had few colonies, and it was almost constantly at war with the USA over one minor border disagreement or another. The Philippines changed all of that. With Spain and Portugal on board, the CSA began aggressively pursuing its agenda in South and Central America. The CSA ensured that a right-wing General, loyal to the CSA and Spain, took control of the United Provinces of Central America. Several decades later, the UPCA would have changed its name, would still be in the grip of a Military General, and would still face insurgencies and violence, but it remained a solid CSA/Spanish ally.

This success story was slowly repeated over the years. The Caribbean Confederacy was joined by force and over several years, as a CSA/Spanish supported Dictator of a united Hispaniola began ridding the Europeans of their Caribbean colonies. Europe initially sent armies to try and regain what was rightfully its, but it soon got caught up with World War 1, and its African colonizing Campaign. The CSA was also busily working in South America, and soon gained allies, by force or coercion. Attempts were made to stop the CSA and Spain, but they were ultimately unsuccessful. Simon Bolivar almost succeeded in wrenching control of parts of South America from the Spanish-CSA grip, with his vision for a Gran Colombia, but ultimately failed. Bolivarism continues to this day in many parts of South America, with many communists and left-wing insurgencies and groups wanting to create a “Bolivarian Republic”. This has yet to come into effect, and the so-called Bolivarian insurgents are nothing more then nuisances to the CSA/Spanish controlled nations in which they wage war. Except for Colombia, that is, where about 1/5 of the country is in the control of Bolivarian inspired left-wing rebels.

The USA did not deviate much from history. Neither did the Russians. Alaska was sold to the USA, and the rest of the world essentially developed the same up to World War I, and slightly beyond. World War 1 was long, and brutal, as it was in real life. The outcome was the same, and the stage was set for World War II.

World War II was, on the other hand, different then real life. The CSA and Hitler were originally allies. The CSA saw the Nazis as an ally, and tried to get them to join CAN. Hitler, however, was suspicious of the CSA. That is why he decided to launch his series of attacks while the USA and CSA were once again emroiled in war over New Mexico. This meant that the large armies and attention of those two nations were distracted. It can now be determined that the Nazis did not view the CSA as an ally, and Hitler had ambitions to conquer Spain. World War II started out the same. Hitler came to power, the UK and Europe appeased him, he got stronger and eventually started to conquer. He took France easier then in real life, and started his attack on Russia earlier. Thanks to the Finns, who allowed the Germans to base themselves in their territory, Hitler captured Leningrad, which was a major feat. Hitler was barely stopped at Moscow. The Russians lost many more men then in reality. Hitler's armies managed to encircle Moscow, and some German elements actually went into the city, as much as the Soviets are denying that.

Ultimately, Hitler failed in Russia, and not because of the Russians. He decided that the CSA’s overtures to get him to formally ally with them was nothing more then a ruse to get rid of him as leader of the Third Reich, and replace him with somebody else. Hitler decided to sever ties with the CSA in what is known as the infamous Berlin Note. It was a diplomatic note passed to the CSA alliance severing ties and accusing them of treason against the German State. Then Hitler decided to launch duel invasions of both Spain and the United Kingdom. In both places, his famous blitzkrieg maneuver initially did very well.

Hitler nearly got to the gates of Madrid in Spain, and gained a lot of ground in the United Kingdom. Until, that was, the USA and CSA were able to scramble enough forces and transport them through the U-boat blockade to help their allies. The USA and CSA quickly signed a ceasefire as to free up more of their troops, and defended their allies. Hitler’s armies were smashed on three fronts, by the Unionists in the UK, and the CSA in Spain, and Russia. In Russia, a fiercely cold winter decimated Hitler’s troops. Hitler was finally stopped in 1947, but it took two more years before USA and USSR troops met in Berlin, having finally conquered Hitler’s Germany. The death camps were discovered, as in real life, with more people having die then in real life. At least 6 million Jews died, along with hundreds of thousands of other innocent minorities, such as homosexuals, and Romas. This shocked the world, as in real life. The CSA, it should be noted crushed Hitler in Spain, thus defending their Spanish allies once more, but did not advance much further. They did make some maneuvers in France to crush more of Hitler’s armies, but they quickly left.

In the pacific, things went pretty much as they did in real life. The only difference was that fighting was essentially over in 1945. The Japanese Empire was created by conquering other nations, and ended with a resounding defeat in Australia. Japan decided that Australia was the last nation it would conquer, so it sent a large force. The USA barely managed to muster the 100,000 troops it sent, and this was barely enough to stop the quarter million troops the Japanese had, along with Anzac troops. After that, all that had to be done was to mop up the remaining Japanese troops, liberate countries, and deploy nuclear bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

The rebuilding process after this war was massive. Large parts of Europe were devastated, and basic infrastructure was totally destroyed in some regions. By 1965, this has been almost totally rebuilt, all except for some parts of Germany and Russia. The Soviets managed to turn much of Eastern Europe into puppet states, and the rest of Europe, to the left of the Iron Curtain, came under the influence of the USA, leading to the rise of the Comintern and ITO. CAN was created in response to the formation of the ITO.

There were, however, more events to follow. Most notably is the decolonization of Africa. Europe had colonized almost all of Africa, and started in 1960 to give freedom to millions on this continent. Vast swaths of the world suddenly found themselves with freedom, and, of course, democratic constitutions. Democracy, however, means little in a country that is dirt poor, has little infrastructure, and has a confusing mix of tradition and European-imposed culture to deal with. This, of course, doesn’t take into account the vast amount of language and other differences between the various African tribes. Needless to say, Africa is not faring much better under freedom them under colonization. Democracy has been replaced by military dictatorships or near-anarchy in many nations. Africa has a wealth of natural resources, but is a backwater continent mostly ignored by the rest of the world.

The final event that is worthy of mention is the spread of Communism, and the efforts to contain it. China was split in 1950 with a Civil war between the Nationalists and Communists. In real life, the Communists mostly win. Here, the Communists almost do the same, but take on more then most think they can handle. Immediately after they banish the Nationalists to Taiwan, they decide to take Tibet, and then start to skirmish with the Soviets over some very small disputed tracts of land on their borders. Mao decided that the PRC must also help some of its communist brothers in the region, namely North Korea and North Vietnam, as well as Laos and Cambodia. Thus, ill-trained and equipped PRC troops get pulled into fighting with Tibetan rebels, the Soviets, anti-Communist groups in Vietnam, Korea, and other nations. All this time, China is undergoing massive economic and social change, with corruption and graft on the rise. This is the PRC that exists in 1965, facing massive challenges. The ROC, on the other hand, is rapidly rebuilding, and continuing to launch small parties to further the instability faced by the PRC.

The world that exists now has changed a lot over the years. It is deeply polarized, with 3 major coalitions which have a multitude of reasons to hate each other. The world is close to another war, and there are many issues which could spark an international infernal. At the same time, the Freedom Liberals are leading a peace movement. The Freedom Liberals is a group of political parties, mostly in the ITO, that are advocating abolishment of militaries around the world. They argue that if everybody had no army, then war would never happen. This, they argue, would allow countries to focus on things for the betterment of humanity, such as Space Exploration, and the such. They are gaining support in countries such as Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, and to a lesser extent in Canada, the UK and USA. What is unique about the Freedom Liberals is that they are allowed to belong to other political parties of any stripe, as long as they believe and advocate for military abolishment. Their impact will be interesting for the world.

So this is the world as at 1965. It can best be described as a powder keg. There are a multitude of forces in the world. Which will come out the victor when the dust settles? The centrist Democracy of ITO? The hardline Militantcy of CAN? Or the Communist values of Comintern? That, my friends, is up to you.

RULES


Statistics

Spoiler for Rules - Statistics:

National Statistics

Every nation will have a set of statistics (abbreviated as “stats”) that will give some information about the nation. This information is used to help the player play that nation and to help compare nations against one another. Generally, the information gives an indication of the nation as a whole, its economy, the size of its military, its political type, and some information on the industry and education in the nation. You directly control some parts of the nation, such as the military, what projects your nation is working on, stability (to an extent) and education of your people. Other things you can only influence, such as the economy, trade, how industrialized your nation is. I decide when things change, and I update them every update, as needed. For NPCs, things generally don’t change that much, unless you influence them, but you can read more about that in the NPC section.

I am going to give you an example of the stats, then go through and explain what each part means in more detail. I am going to experiment with using a number system to describe things between 1 and 10. I hope this won’t over simplify the game, but rather give the reader a quick and accurate idea of that statistic. In almost every case, 1 will mean low, or bad, and 10 will be high, or good. More on this later. One last thing, please keep in mind if you notice anything wrong with anybody’s stats, please e-mail me so I notice it and can correct it.

Here is an example of what a Nation’s stats will look like:

Nation: Imperial Grand Republic of Goober (Gooberopia)
Player: Goober
Government Type: Authoritarian Dictatorship (10)
Economy: Shattered (2/-1/0/15)
Military: MOBILIZATION
Army: 10,000 Regulars, 5,000 Special, 1,500 Tanks
Navy: 1 Aircraft Carrier, 20 Battleships, 5 Destroyers, 3 Frigates,
Air Force: 20 Fighters, 30 Bombers, 10 Interceptors
Size: 5
Industrialization: 4
Education and Health: 8
Stability: 2
Trade: 1
Current Projects: Armageddon (2/6, 1/3)
Completed Projects: Life (DONE!)

Nation and Player:

These are really simple; they simply tell the name of the Nation and of the Player. I usually will use the name that you choose for the nation, but I might put a more descriptive name in brackets beside it. In my example, the nation has an official long name that it calls itself, and then a shorter name that people recognize it by. For instance, the Republic of China is typically called Taiwan. For the player name, I use the one that you registered with CFC, but I might put a nickname beside it.

Government Type

The purpose of this is to tell people what kind of a Government you have, generally the more info the better. I prefer “Parliamentary Monarchy” to “Democracy”, etc., just to be descriptive. The number in brackets afterwards is between 1 and 10. It’s purpose it to tell you what kind of government is in charge of the nation politically. 1 means extreme leftist, or communist, and 10 means extremely conservative. In my example, well, Gooberopia is a dictatorship, which also happens to be extremely conservative politically.

Changing between Government types is generally a complicated and tricky affair, which usually involves a loss in stability. It can involve bloodshed, such as a Fascist dictatorship overthrowing a left-wing Democracy. It can lead to civil war, whatever the case, it is a tricky manoeuvre. For a democracy, it will involve the Constitution or Basic Laws of the country being changed, which is politically difficult, but it can be done easily. Generally, Democracies tend to be less corrupt and more efficient then Communism or Fascism. Of course, you are ultimately in charge of that.

Example Government Descriptions:

Fundamentalism, Fascist Dictatorship, Communism, DemoCommunism, Totalitarian Communism, Monarchical Communism, Multiparty Democracy, Theocracy, Monarchy, Constitutional Monarchy, Parliamentary Monarchy, 2-Party Democracy, DemoFascism, FundoSocialism.

Economy

Economy is simply a measure of how well the economy of the nation is performing. It describes the flow of goods and services and demand and supply for the nation, to use some economics terms. The system I use might look complicated, but it is fairly simple once you understand it. Generally, it consists of a verbal description, and then numerical details about how the economy is performing. How your economy is doing is very important to your nation, especially democracies, so this section is important. The economy of the nation will have a massive impact upon your nation, and your people. Also, this data tells you how much you can spend, which is critical.

Verbal Descriptions generally tell the world how your economy is doing. It is per capita, that is, you can directly compare it to another nation. A bigger nation, with a bigger population and more resources will perform better, given everything held constant, then a smaller nation, so I take that into effect. However, a small nation can also have an incredibly efficient economy that is extremely productive, like Singapore in real like. Here is a list of the descriptions. The numbers in brackets I will explain next:

Shattered (1) - Barely functioning (2) - Mostly Functioning (3) - Functioning (4) - Severe Depression (5) - Depression (6) - Recession (7) - Failing (8) - Stable (9) - Normal (10) - Above Normal (11) - Growing (12) - Strong (13) - Very Strong (14) - Prosperous (15) - Very Prosperous (16) - Extremely Prosperous (17) - Outstanding - (18) - Very Outstanding (19) - Powerhouse (20) - Superpower (21+)

Each year (or update), you will have a set amount of what are referred to as “eco”, or economic points to spend. These loosely represent the revenue that you make from your economy each year. The numbers above are the gross amount that you will make at each economic level. Generally, an eco is equal to around 10-15 billion dollars. It must be stated, however, that you cannot really compare this system to a real life economy. I have designed this system so that you have money to spend each year to make things more exciting.

Now I will explain the numbers in the brackets.

Economy: XXXX (A/B/C/D). This is interpreted as follows:
• XXXX - Verbal Description of your Economy
• A - Eco required to pay for maintenance or upkeep costs
• B - Eco you spend/turn (Don't forget Bonus eco from last turn, and add revenue from colonies or nations you directly control)
• C - Eco that you have banked, and can spend on any turn.
• D - Eco that you owe other people, your Debt. Note that this goes up over time, due to Interest.

As you can see, the numbers are fairly self-explanatory. I will now briefly explain them a bit more, but I think you get the idea from above. Maintenance is the money that you must spend to keep what you presently have. This means paying salaries mostly, but also for cleaning costs, and such. A large part of this will be the government bureaucracy and the military. You must pay this each turn, if you don’t, well, bad things happen, such as strikes and the like.

The eco that you can spend (B) is the amount from above, the description, minus the maintenance. So, if your economy is outstanding, that means that you have 18 eco to spend. If you have 5 eco of maintenance per turn, then 13, the net amount, will show up as B. Now, each turn you have the chance of gaining bonus eco. Please see the Stories section for more on this. The B number does not include bonus eco, you need to add that on yourself. Please see the appropriate section for how to spend your eco. The last two sections, C and D are fairly straightforward. I will not bank your eco for you if you fail to spend it, or send orders. I might bank 1 or 2 if I am feeling nice, but somebody will spend your money for you, whether that is on government business or not.

You are able to influence, but not directly control, your economy. Cutting taxes will cause your revenue to drop, but not necessarily your economy, as consumers will spend that additional money (or businesses), and that money will stay in the economy. Your government type will influence the economy as well. A more socialist government, that has more influence in the economy, will generally be better for individuals but worse for the economy as a whole. A government that has little influence in the economy is better for the economy but worse for the individuals. By influence I mean setting prices, nationalizing industries, government-owned companies, and so forth. Your trade will also affect the economy. The more trade you do, the better for consumers and the economy, but the worse for producers. The less trade you do, or the more protectionist you are, the better for producers, but the worse for consumers and the economy as a whole. Again, another balancing act that I will take into effect.
The Gooberopia economy is as such: Shattered (2/-1/0/15). So, the economy has been totally ruined, likely by war of some sort. They have 2 maintenance every turn, and they lose an eco per turn. 1 eco/turn in Shattered – 2 maintenance = -1 eco. They have nothing banked, and owe 15 eco to others.

Military

This section is very self-explanatory. It just tells you how large your military is. The word after Military describes any special events happening to your military. In my example, the nation is being mobilized, that is, all persons of a certain age are being trained to fight. Please note that ships and planes will cost the same amount regardless of what nation it is. This is because it costs the same amount to build and manufacture ships and planes regardless of the country. Troops will vary depending on your nation’s size, which shall be explained more later.

Your army simply consists of the number of troops you have. The adage of more the merrier doesn’t really have an effect, with modern warfare. Having troops is a good thing; they can be useful in certain situations, but not all the time. With modern bombs and such, the foot soldiers of World War I simply cannot be as useful as a tank or bomber. For troops, this will vary depending on the size of your nation. The base amount will be 5,000 troops per eco. That number will be multiplied by half of your nation’s size, with the minimum being 5,000 troops. Some examples:

5,000 (base) X 2.5 (Nation Size of 5 divided by 2) X 1 eco = 12,500 total troops.
5,000 X 1.5 (Nation size of 3 divided by 2) X3 eco = 22,500 total troops.

Here are the costs for all other military units: Please note that these are the costs for the generic units. If you develop technology that is better, then those will cost more to build, depending on how much you improve the basic technology.

• 1 eco = 6 smaller ships (Frigates, smaller Destroyers)
• 1 eco = 4 larger ships (Battleships, large Destroyers)
• 1 eco = 1 large Aircraft Carrier, 2 small Aircraft Carriers
• 1 eco = 100 Tanks
• 1 eco = 25 Fighters or Interceptors
• 1 eco = 20 Bombers
• 1 eco = 200 Special Forces (Like the US Delta, Rangers, Canadian JTF2)
• 1 eco = 10 ICBMs or Space Launchers (Need Space Launching Facility)
• 1 eco = 100 SRBMs

ICBMs are, of course, InterContinental Ballistic Missiles, basically big missiles that go into space and come down to destroy stuff on other continents. You can attach nuclear devices to these, or other bombs. These are expensive because it costs a low to fuel it and get it off the ground. Space Launchers are essentially meant to put stuff in space, like satellites, etc. Everything else is fairly simply to understand. Please keep in mind that I don’t worry about the logistics. For instance, when you build tanks, it is assumed that you have tankers to keep them filled up with fuel, and support vehicles. For troops, I assume, that you have Armoured Personal Carriers to transport them.
One final note on Military is that you can do projects where you say that you want to build a set amount of military units, and then I give you a set price. As with everything, if you build or order large quantities, that is more efficient, so it will cost you less money. In limited circumstances, you can jointly develop new technologies.

Size

Size has to do with how big the nation is, and how many people it has. The bigger the landmass of a nation, or the larger the population, the larger the nation’s size rating. The rating varies from 1 to 10. 1 is a nation with a smaller population or land mass. An example would be Albania. 5 is an average sized nation, like, say, France. 10 would be a very large nation, in population and landmass. Am example would be Russia or China. You increase your landmass and population by conquering your neighbours. You can also encourage your population to produce more children through tax breaks and such.

Industrialization

Industrialization, as it sounds, is a measure of how industrialized your nation is. This means you have technologically advanced factories, industrial farms, an extensive and efficient road and rail system, and other infrastructure. This is calculated along a 1-10 scale, as discussed before. A 1 means that the country has little to no basic infrastructure. There might be some dirt roads, and very rudimentary transportation networks, but predominantly subsistence farming and very basic industries. Many African countries are at this range. A 10 means that the country has top-notch infrastructure. It has new, large roads, a very efficient transportation system, and industries that use the best, most modern technology.

This will directly affect your economy, and you can only somewhat affect it. You can upgrade and build infrastructure, roads, sewer lines, electrical grid, etc. But that is only half of it, you also need to attract companies which invest in the best technology and the like. Generally, large projects work best for this, but remember, roads always need to be repaved and upgrade, so trying to improve your industry can seem to be a bit thankless at times.

Education and Health

This is a very simple statistic. It simply is a measure of the education and health of your population. 1 means very little to no access to quality education and health, and 10 means you have a top-of-the-line health care and educational system. Depending on your system of government, then you can directly affect this. If you have a nationalized, state-owned Health Care and Education system, then you can just invest more money, and they will become better and better. If they are privatized, then you cannot really directly impact this number, except to try and change standards or prices. This will only really impact your economy if it is really low, because an uneducated workforce is a bad thing, of course. Also, a good health care and education number can increase immigration.

Stability

Stability deals with political stability. Again, this works via my 1-10 system. A 1 means that the country has little to no political stability. A 10 means that the country has an established, stable political system. Factors that affect the stability of a nation deals with things such as armed insurgencies, minority governments, changing government types, etc. The political stability will directly impact the economy. Obviously the higher the stability, the better for the economy, long periods of instability is bad for economies. You have somewhat control over stability. You can quell insurgencies; you can try and have a stable government, stability is generally fair easy to deal with.

Trade

Trade is simply a measure of your levels of trade with the outside world. This will be impacted by a variety of things, but primarily your trade laws. If you are more protectionist, then you will be constricting the flow of goods into your nation, and that will be bad for your economy. If you have free trade laws, then any nation can import their goods into your country without restrictions. This employs the same 1-10 scale, with 1 being an economy which allows virtually no trade, and a 10 being a nation that has completely free trade.

Both have their benefits, but you need to have taken some economics to truly understand it. Essentially, protectionism is better for producers (companies), but worse for consumers (regular people who might elect you), and worse for the economy overall. Free Trade is better for consumers, but worse for producers, and better for economies overall. I can explain in more detail if needed. Essentially, you need to find a balance between the two, keeping in mind that the groups being made worse off will complain against your move.

Projects

Projects are large national undertakings that your nation does. The goal is, of course, to achieve something of strategic important. You might be improving your education system, upgrading your infrastructure, developing a new military technology, building a space station, or upgrading your military. Those are, of course, examples. How projects work is that you send me your proposal, as a PM or E-mail (preferably not by MSN). You give me the following:

• A code and real name for the project, the code name is shown in your stats.
• A brief description of the project
• Your estimated time and eco spent on the project.

Projects require two things, eco points to complete, and time. In your stats, I will show projects as you can see in the Gooberopia example. You will see the name (Armageddon) that you send me in the PM. Beside it, I will put the Eco and Time required to finish it, in this format: Armageddon (Eco Spent/Eco Required Time Spent/Time Needed). I will take your suggested times and ecos into consideration, but I ultimately decide because I am God in this Universe. When you complete a project, then your stats get altered as required, and I usually announce it in the AWR each year.


Updates

Spoiler for Rules - Updates:

Some examples of my style of Updating can be found on my first NES, Fallout, linked above. Generally, however, I give a snapshot of the world, and include major events. I give updates in the form of a newspaper, called the "Annual World Report", or AWR. It basically tells of major events that occurred over the last year. You are the one that ultimately decides what happens. I look at your orders, your diplomacy, and your actions in the thread over the period of time. These form my stories. I do stories on diplomatic, political, military, and natural events. Nations can get bonusses from Stories, and they can spend these or use them, as appropriate, over the next near. One turn is one year, from January 1 19XX to December 31, 19XX inclusive. The AWR reports every year.

I need at least 50+1% of orders from nations to update, and I must have orders from the USSR, USA and CSA. I will update on Sunday or Monday every week. I update the Map and your stats each update, and your Nation's Background and NPCs as needed.


Orders

Spoiler for Rules - Orders:

Orders are an integral part of any NES. I need them to update, to tell the world what actions you are doing. You need to send them to me by PM or E-mail. I don't accept Orders on MSN or in the thread. In your orders, you essentially tell me what you want to do for that year. You also spend your eco points, including any bonus from last turn.

I reccomend that you send me a set of general orders at the beginning of the game in case you are unable to send orders for an Update. That way I can update for you anyway. Then you can send more specific orders, and rely on the general ones if you are busy with school stuff of whatever one week. I don't save your eco for the next turn if you don't send orders.

When you send your orders, I reccomend that you copy and paste your stats with them, but that is not necessary. You need to do several things. First, you need to spend your eco points. See the Rules - Statistics section for more info on that. Then you need to tell me what you want your nation to do. Politically, you can try and influence your allies or enemies. You can hold elections (which you can decide the result, within reason, or I can). You can also try and pass laws in your nation to advance your agenda. Diplomatically, you can sent our orders to subordinate nations, ask allies to do certain things for you, like give you eco, or negotiate with your enemies. Militarily, you need to give me what you want your army to do. If you are at war, I need strategies. They don't need to be complex, just tell me where you want to attack, what you want to defend, etc.


Diplomacy

Spoiler for Rules - Diplomacy:

Diplomacy is when you talk to your friends and your allies, other nations, and try to get them to do what you want. This is to be done in the thread, if it is public. Secret diplo can be done via PM or MSN, or even E-mail.

NPC Nations are Non-Player Character. They are nations that have nobody playing them. As the Mod, I role-play them. Diplo with them is done through me. I try and be fair when I role-play them, and of course unbiased. In the updates, I might mention events that are NPC-related that affect your nation.


Stories

Spoiler for Rules - Stories:

Stories are when you tell us about an event in detail. This is usually in the form of a newspaper telling the world about your domestic or foreign policies, but doesn't have to be. You could give a detailed account of how your domestic policies are helping your nation, describe a big national event, or perhaps a massive new project that you finished.

Stories are definitely a plus to this game. They really add to the game, and make it more fulfilling for everybody. It shows that you have the time and care about your nation enough, and you are a serious NESer. But, if you don’t write them, don’t worry, we all have our real life issues. Random Bonuses or Events will happen to all nations, just more towards those who write stories. I will give random eco bonuses, roops bonuses, etc. depending on your story, but I will keep it real. I mean, you are not generally going to go up eco levels, you will just get bonus eco. Note that stories will usually bring positive random events, but can bring negative ones too. And there is the very unlikely possibility that you might lose eco because of it, but I will deal with that by informing the writer.


War

Spoiler for Rules - War:

War is when you use your military to attack another country. There aer some things which need to be explained here. First, if you are the agressor, your people will eventually tire of the cost of a lengthy war, both in monetary and human values. This is especially true if you are a more liberal democracy. Of course, if there is no freedom of the press, what the people don't know generally can't hurt them. If you are the defender, then your people will be much more willing to support the cause.

You can Conscript and Mobilize your nation during wartimes. Conscription is drafting people into your army, like the USA did for Vietnam in real life. It is VERY unpopular. Mobilization is when you transform your economy so that you are producing goods for war, and that only. It is generally bad for economies, and the government usually needs to intervene. I will warn you that wars are unpopular, but sometimes needed. Your people are definitely not fond of them.


United Nations


[spoiler=Rules - UN]
The UN, since it was created in the aftermath of World War II, has been a fairly significant factor.

NATIONAL BACKGROUNDS PART 1


Spoiler for National Backgrounds:

Afghanistan – Afghanistan has a long history of being conquered by one force after another. This nation is a patchwork of different cultures, and suffers political instability as a result. Since 1933, Afghanistan has been under the rule of King Zahir Shah, and is enjoying a sustained period of stability. It’s economy is rebuilding, and political reforms have led to an elected parliament, and the promised of an elected President. It still faces some small-scale insurgencies, and its bloody past means that it is likely to slip back into turmoil.

Albania – This is a small communist country, and a part of Comintern. Albania is isolated, and has experienced rocky relations with its Communist brethren. It’s economy is suffering, and its people live in poverty. This is a small poor nation that the USSR mostly ignores, given the relationship between its leader and the Soviets.

Algeria – This North African nation recently gained independence from France. This was done so after a brutal war of independence, and the effects are still very present. It lost many people, and a lot of infrastructure was destroyed. The current elected President is turning increasing authoritarian, which is adding to their problems. This country is fairly large, but poor, and has few natural resources besides oil. It is underdeveloped, and very poor, like so much of Africa.

Angola – Angola remains a Colony of Portugal, but this is not a happy colony. Numerous independence groups are fighting for freedom, but Portugal has a tight grip on this colony. The sole reason that it keeps this colony is to exploit the resources here. Portugal has contracts with major companies providing them exclusive rights to drill oil and mine mineral, and that is making Portugal very rich.

Argentina – This country is a classic South American Military Dictatorship. The General of the Army overthrew Juan Peron 5 years ago, and has been clamping down on recent pro-Democracy protests. The economy has been suffering under instability, and acts of terror and such are on the rise. Argentina is an important member of CAN, and has a lot of influence within that organization.

Australia – The Commonwealth of Australia is a fairly typical nation. It was formerly part of the British Commonwealth, and then gained its Independence. It retains ties with the UK, but is much closer with the USA now. It is considered a fairly important player in the ITO, but mostly goes along with the USA. It has troops in Vietnam, and that war is turning increasingly unpopular with Australians. It remains a fairly Conservative nation, but is slowly opening itself up to immigration and trade. The Freedom Liberals are starting to become an increasing force in Australian Politics, and at least 2 parliamentarians claim they are in favour of ridding Australia of a military. The Republican movement is also fairly strong in this continent nation.

Austria – This small landlocked nation is in central Europe. It was invaded by Nazi’s Germany early in World War II, but managed to escape that war with less damage then Germany and France. It has fully rebuilt itself, and is a modern, progressive state with a surprisingly efficient economy. The major debate currently facing Austria is its neutrality. Embedded in their Constitution, it says that Austria is to remain a neutral country, like Switzerland. Yet the former Conservative government managed to exploit a loophole which allowed Austria to join the ITO. The current Liberals want to remove Austria from the ITO, but this is proving to be controversial. Within ITO, Austria is very pacifist, and is currently shrinking its military, eventually hoping to get rid of it through attrition and retirements.

Belgium – One of the Low Countries, there is not much of interest to note about this country. It is very peaceful, and very stable. It has rebuilt fully from World War II, and it has divulged of its colonies. The Freedom Liberals are very strong here, and might make significant gains in the next elections. In ITO, it aligns with the pacifist block, others being Scandinavia, the Netherlands and Austria.

Benin – This African nation has seen coups, counter-coups, and near civil war since it gained independence from France. There are 3 leaders from 3 separate areas of the country vying for leadership of this country. There is a brewing humanitarian crisis in this country, and war is ripping apart this country literally. The world seems content to just sit back and let it happen.

Bolivia – This South American nation has been undergoing some revolutionary events. Its left-leaning government, in 1964, was hit with a coup that the USSR accused the CSA of plotting. It was discovered afterwards that Bolivia had a secret mutual protection agreement with the USSR. The Soviets honoured it, and sent a force to “restore the rightful leadership of Bolivia”. Well, the Soviets did just that. Except for one minor detail, they needed a sea port, so they invaded along the Chile-Peru border, and finally liberated Bolivia. CAN decided not to declare war on the USSR because the Soviets threatened to turn it nuclear. Bolivia remains in a state of war, with the Soviet backed Communists battling the rightist coup. This country is on the brink of civil war. CAN is launching military operations along its borders with Bolivia, which is only escalating tensions.

Botswana – This landlocked South African country is due to become Independent from the UK in about 4 months. It is a smaller, peaceful country with many natural resources. It has a functioning democracy, a reasonably healthy economy. In short, this nation is doing fairly well, compared to most in Africa.

Brazil – Brazil is a large, powerful nation. Its military is one of the largest in CAN. It is the largest nation in CAN. However, it is suffering from internal strife. The military overthrew the civilian democracy in 1964, and it is still gaining control of some parts of the country. There is a very active pro-Democracy insurgency, which has a lot of support among the people. The dictatorship has been clamping down on basic freedoms in the name of national security, and these are anything but popular. The economy is only performing as it is because the military is in control of Brazil’s vital industries.

Bulgaria – This nation is firmly under the iron thumb of the USSR. Nothing happens here that Moscow doesn’t approve. The economy of this small nation isn’t doing so great, but, well, that is for Moscow to change things.

Burundi - This nation, like many in Africa, recent was granted Independence. Then the Tusti Minority committed a coup, and their leader got into place, where's he been ever since. The Hutu majority are becoming louder in demanding that they have representation in the government, however. Relations between the two groups are rapidely deteriorating, a source of concern for outside viewers.

Cambodia – This is a very impoverished nation that never fully recovered from when it was a part of French IndoChina. It is currently under the rule of a King, but that rule is very unstable. There are a variety of groups in the country trying to get rid of the King, the two largest is a pro-Democracy group and a Communist group, supported by North Vietnam and the PRC. Cambodia is also feeling fallout from the war embroiling Vietnam, which it borders. Vietcong have been hiding in Cambodia, and the American-led forces have been crossing the border to track them down. The USA and CSA also accuse Cambodia of harbouring the Vietcong, and have launched bombing raids in Cambodia to try to and find them.

Cameroon – Cameroon is a fairly typical African nation. It has recently attained independence from its former European masters. Of course, Europe left before they could give Cameroon basic infrastructure, but Cameroon is trying to change that. Cameroon’s Republican Constitution has been upheld, and this nation is a Democracy. Of course, Cameroon remains very poor, and it has an ongoing fight with rebels in the East and South of the country from different tribal groups then the current leaders.

Canada – This vast, sparsely populated nation is a strong ally of the USA. It shares the longest undefended border in the world, and trade with the USA is very important. Canadian resources, which are extracted and shipped raw to the USA, is why the USA is such a powerful country. Canada is seen by many in the USA as a convenient place to get natural resources, and little else. Canadians are aware of this, and they are increasingly demanding that their country have a larger role internationally, instead of simply being a convenient resource bank for the USA. The Freedom Liberals have an increasing presence here, and Canadians are strongly against the Vietnam war, and military aggression against Communists, which could start World War III. Current issues here include the FLQ Quebec Separatists, whom are engaged in a campaign of terror to try and get independence from Canada. Also, Canada has been accepting huge numbers of Draft Dodgers from the USA whom are trying to escape the war in Vietnam, which is a major irritant to the USA.

Caribbean Confederacy – This nation was born of war, and war has defined it. During World War I, while Europe was busy fighting itself, the CSA saw an opportunity to rid Europe of its Caribbean colonies, and get rid of a major nuisance. Well, it supported a General in the Dominican Republic and helped him go on a conquering spree, taking island colony after island colony. By the time Europe was finished its war in Europe, and the dust settled, a new nation had been born, the Caribbean Confederacy. Notably, Cuba was not part of this country. This country was born of war, and it is fighting several insurgencies. There is an effort by the top generals in this nation to grant some more basic freedoms, but those are happening slowly.

Central African Republic – This story has been repeated many times before. This time, it has a slight twist. This nation was recently granted independence from France. It started out as a Democratic Republic. Then the Civilian President took complete command. Last year, he was overthrown by a Colonel, who is currently in control. Like so much of Africa, it is poor, underdeveloped and without much hope.

Chad – Chad was granted independence a few years ago, and got off to a fairly good start. Elections were held, and this desert sparsely populated country seemed to be functioning fairly well. That all changed last year, when northern Muslims demanded that the elected Christian president step down for one of their own. He refused, and the nation is currently in the beginning stage of civil war between the north and the south. The economy, which was doing fairly well, has plummeted, and full-scale civil war is very close to breaking out.

Chile – Chile was a fully functioning Republican-style Democracy. Until, that is, 5 years ago, when it elected a leftist party who wanted to break ties with CAN. The CSA quickly encouraged a General to take over control, he did, and he’s been in charge ever since. The leftists, initially discouraged and divided, have been recently organizing themselves, and have launched a united insurgency in this country, which has consequences for the region. CAN, of course, strongly suspects the USSR of funding them.

People's Republic of China – This nation faces a long list of problems that it needs to overcome. First of all, the leadership of this country is not stable. Mao Zedong is the supreme leader, but his subordinates have a high turnover rate, which is leading to instability and inconsistency in the leadership. This country’s poorly trained and equipped military is stretched to the limit. First, it is fighting with India and Pakistan in Kashmir. It also recently conquered Bhutan and Tibet, and is suppressing insurgencies there. It is also fighting a border war with the USSR, and has troops supporting Communist movements in North Korea and North Vietnam. Finally, it is facing its nemesis, the Nationalists, who lost the Civil War to them, and are based on Taiwan who are threatening to invade. The economic policies implemented by the Communists have yet to bear fruit, which is adding to the PRC’s problems. Finally, it’s relationship with the USSR is deteriorating, and it is trying to gain control of the Comintern. This nation faces many problems, but, with a huge population and land mass, it has a lot of promise

Republic of China – When the Nationalists lost the Chinese Civil War to the Communists, they fled to the island of Taiwan, where they currently are. They are recognized as the only true China by CAN and ITO. Both of those organizations refuse to recognize the PRC, and are openly arming and supporting Taiwan. The USA has been helping the Nationalists formulate a functioning Republican Democracy, and elections will be held soon. The Nationalists are preparing to invade the mainland, the question is can they do it, and will the mainland Chinese welcome them as conquering heroes, or scorn them?

Colombia – Colombia has a weakened military dictatorship which is supported and financed almost entirely by CAN. This diverse nation is in the midst of several crises. The first is Panama. Having supported the insurgency in Panama with arms against the USA, and winning, against all the odds, Panama is now a part of Colombia. Colombia faces uprisings by leftists and communists in the south and east, and they control large swaths of countryside. Panamanians are also protesting, demanding more rights. Finally, protests are occurring more frequently by Colombians, demanding democracy and a return of their basic rights. All of these factors mean that Colombia is a nation patched together by military might, and very weak. Also, the Panama Canal was totally destroyed in the fighting, and Colombia will need to ask CAN to help rebuilding it.

Confederated States of America – The CSA was born of war, and that war has defined it. It was the victor of the American Civil War, having managed, thanks to the heroic General Lee, to defeat the USA. This is a very religious, very traditional nation. Slavery is officially illegal, but the large black population have next to no human rights. They are used as human labourers, and can legally be claimed as financial assets by companies. They work in the factories, in the fields for little or no wages. The immense profits have made their white masters rich, and the nation as a whole. This is a highly decentralized nation. The Federal Government in Richmond has little power, essentially over Security and Foreign affairs. With some exceptions, the stats have power over essentially everything else. There are two main political parties, the Democrats, formed by General Lee, and the True Democrats. The former are slightly more leftist, and the latter are very fundamentalist. Current issues include the rumours of a black uprising, and black rights. The Democrats have been suggesting that black people have a minimum, albeit very low, wage. The True Democrats are campaigning heavily against this. The CSA has a ceasefire with the USA in all states except for Kentucky, Missouri and New Mexico. Fighting there continues, and has on and off for decades. The CSA are the leaders of the CAN, and are strongly anti-Communist. They have troops in Vietnam, and strongly support the Nationalistic Chinese. This is a nation steeped in traditional values, born of war, and it looks set to continue that.

Confederated Provinces of Central America – As the name suggests, this is a political union of central American countries. The dream of uniting came to fruition with the help of the Confederacy. Of course, it also meant that a military dictator was in charge. This nation is poor, and faces leftist insurgencies. It is a diverse nation, but the leader of this nation is trying to change things. Human Rights Acts have been passed, and the Constitution is being changed. Rumours are swirling that the Dictator might be considering allowing an elected civilian President.

Congo – France and Belgium agreed to combine their two Congos along with Gabon to create a larger nation in Africa. The theory was that a large nation would have a powerful elected president, and would be stronger, and more stable. That was a fine theory. In reality, this nation is being ripped apart by more rebel groups and insurgencies then most people in this nation can count to. The President is nominally in charge, but it’s really the military that keeps him, and this vast nation, barely in power. France and Belgium are in talks to try and come to some agreement about splitting this nation up, but that will prove to be a challenge. This nation is very rich in natural resources, if it could just stabilize itself, it could be the jewel of Africa.

Costa Rica – Costa Rica is one of the few true Democracies south of the Confederacy. It is a staunch ally of the USA, who has invested billions in this small country. It’s people consistently vote for left or center-left governments. It abolished its military in 1949, and the Freedom Liberals quote this nation as one that is better for that. It’s economy is flourishing from trade with the USA. The USA has its main Space Launch Base in the south of this country, and that is a major employer. The USA also has about 20,000 troops in this country, and has a mutual protection agreement with this nation. This nation is considered the jewel of Central and South America.

Ivory Coast – This nation has prospered after it was granted Independence from France. Instead of it failing in the hands of a dictator, and the Europeans leaving, the opposite happened. It maintained its Democratic Constitution, and Europeans poured in. This country has a bright future, and its economy is the envy of many in Africa. It does face challenges with increasing levels of immigrating poor Africans from other countries, and its health care and education systems need some work.

Cuba – Fidel Castro took control of this country in 1959, and turned it into a Communist state. The CSA was busy in Vietnam and with some internal issues, so its attention was distracted. By the time the CSA tried to intervene, Castro was firmly in charge of Cuba, and the Soviets were sending ships. Cuba is currently involved in a crisis, the USSR is sending a fleet with more reinforcements for this island nation, and it contains, allegedly, some nuclear devices and missiles for Cuba. Having a Communist dictatorship on its doorstep is embarrassing enough for the CSA, never mind one with Nuclear-armed Missiles.

Czechoslovakia – This is a typical Eastern European country firmly under the thumb of Moscow. Nothing happens here that the Moscow-planted President doesn’t approve. There are rumours of an ongoing battle with pro-Democracy forces and those wanting religious freedoms, but those have yet to become huge issues here.

Denmark – This is one of the Scandinavia countries. It is a very stable country, part of the left-leaning block in the ITO. It is strongly against using military force to defeat Communism, and is calling for better relations between the alliances. The Freedom Liberals are strong here, and the idea of abolishing the army, which many in Denmark say is not needed anymore, is growing. Otherwise, this is a stable prosperous nation. Recent protectionist actions by the government regarding trade have been having a negative effect for the economy and trade.

Ecuador – This nation is under the grip of a Military Dictatorship. The only difference is that this dictatorship is not as hated by citizens as in other nations, and the government has been slowly introducing reforms here. Freedom of Religion was recently granted, and the press is slowly having its chains lifted. The Government has openly mused about local elections, and perhaps an elected civilian leader. The economy is doing better then some of its neighbours. As the country liberalizes, there will be more protests and instability, which the military will need to deal with.

Egypt – Great pyramids and ancient civilizations mark the past of this nation, the present is much less glorious, however. Tensions with Israel have led Egypt to support the Soviets in the region, and there is a close alliance with Syria. Egypt is still a Democracy, but the very popular Nasser, elevated to near hero status by many Arabs after the Suez Crisis, has won 3 in a row, and seems unstoppable. Nasser’s economic policies might be his undoing, he is currently nationalizing and socializing the country, and this is driving out investors and down the economy. Rumours are circling that tensions with Israel will boil over into new conflict.

Equatorial Guinea – This nation remains a colony of Spain. Spain is slowly granting some limited autonomy to this colony, but it is not happening fast enough for some Guineans.

Ethiopia – This nation is currently run by an Emperor, who has been in charge of this nation for decades. It is a poor African nation, but it invested in its military, and conquered its neighbours, Eritrea and Djibouti. It is facing a Communist uprising, which the Emperor accuses is being supported by the Soviets. Also, tribal warfare is negatively affecting the country’s economy.

East (Federated Republic of) Germany – Germany was split into two countries at the end of World War II, East and West. The East is firmly under the control of Moscow, like the rest of Eastern Europe. There is a wall separating the two nations. The East’s economy is doing fairly good, but the people remain poor. Every year, an estimated 20,000 East Germans try and cross the border to the West. The secret police, the Stasi, are feared in this nation.

Finland – This nation decided to ally with Nazi Germany, which allowed it to gain land in the Karelia region new Leningrad. After the war, it managed to quickly change alliances to the USA, who sent troops and defended the Karelia against the Soviets. This means that Finland has land within 5 kilometres of Leningrad, the second largest Soviet city. This is one of the most highly militarized regions in the world, with hundreds of thousands of troops on either side. Finland retains trade ties with the Soviets though, and is strongly against military actions against Communism, like the rest of Scandinavia.

France – France has rebuilt its country from the effects of World War II, but not its pride. Under their wartime hero, Charles de Gaulle, France is currently embroiled in a national debate over whether it should adopt a Sixth Republic, with a strong President, and a Senate, but no Parliament. Public opinion seems divided over the issue. France is also industrializing and militarizing in major way. It is advocating military action against Communists, and is vowing to make France a superpower once again.

French Guiana - This is a colony of France. it remains loyal to France, there are no groups demanding independence. Of course, France has made it very clear that, under France, the citizens have rights. If the counrty was granted independence, then CAN would likely invade, and set up a military dictatorship, like Guyana. Under CAN, the citizens would have next to no rights, like the rest of South America. This has ensured loyalty to France. France also is being a Space Program here.

Ghana – Ghana is a typical story of Africa. It was granted Independence, it had a promising future, democracy, and so forth. Then came its first coup. Followed by another. 7 coups later, the country is very poor, extremely unstable, and the constant fighting has left thousands dead and displaced, infrastructure ruined, and the economy in shambles.

Greece – Greece has just elected an ultra-Conservative Government, who is promising a strong Greece with a strong military who will be a major player in the world. This country remains poor, however, so how this will be financed is a question. Greece is currently fighting with Turkey over Cyprus. The current President claims all of Cyprus, and says that Cyprus will be totally Greek by the time he is finished. Cyprus is currently about 2/3 Greek and 1/3 Turkish. Both Turkey and Greece are in the ITO, and the President has threatened to leave if the ITO does not help reclaim Cyprus for Greece. Turkey is making similar threats. Greece is being courted by the CSA for CAN.

Guinea – After gaining Independence, a Dictator immediately came to power. He has been here ever since, suppressing dissent, and pressing his socialist policies onto the nation. This nation is like most in Africa, very poor, not much infrastructure, and with so much promise.

Guinea-Bissau – This small nation remains a colony of Portugal. This is a small, poor nation that Portugal only really uses as a port to refuel its ships and those of its allies.

Guyana – The British let this colony go in 1964. It left it with a Democratic Constitution, and more infrastructure and stability then much of Africa. But then the CSA decided that a certain Air Marshal would make a much better President. And so, it came in, toppled the democratic Government, and planted their Air Marshal. The riots and demonstrations as a result of this have all been put down.

Hungary – Hungary was badly damaged at the end of World War II. It fell under the Soviet sphere of influence, but then tried to leave the Warsaw Pact. Alarmed at the precedent this would cause, the Soviets immediately invaded, crushing the old government, and installing a government that it directly controlled. Hungary has been frequently cited as an example of what happens when Moscow’s children try and halt Moscow’s influence.

Iceland – This small, cold island nation has roots that go back to the time when Eric the Red was discovering Greenland. It abolished its military in 1951, and the USA is in charge of Security. ITO has a massive base here, which they use to track Comintern and CAN naval activities. The Icelandic economy is suffering of late from over fishing, and is trying to liberalize its trade rules to compensate.

India – This vast poor nation is currently embroiled in yet another war. It has the second largest population in the world, after China, and, as this nation slowly develops, that population is growing rapidly. It currently has a temporary truce with Pakistan, but only out of necessity to beat the Chinese in Kashmir. India also is openly helping the Tibetan rebels, and refuses to recognize the PRC. India is expected to launch major military offensives against both China and Pakistan soon. This country faces a multitude of social and cultural problems, particular its ancient caste system.

Indonesia – Following Independence from the Netherlands, Sukarno soon came to power, and turned this originally Democratic nation into a dictatorship. The world’s largest Muslim nation is resource-rich, but remains brutally poor. Corruption is among the worst in the world. Coupled with constant fighting among the hundreds of different ethnic groups, this nation has some serious challenges on its hands.

Iran – Iran is currently ruled by a King, but his power is waning. A group of religious extremists demanding that an Islamic Theocracy be instated are growing in power, fuelled by protests from Students. This oil-rich nation is an important nation in the world, and especially in OPEC, but is facing some difficult internal issues.

NATIONAL BACKGROUNDS - I TO U


Spoiler for National Backgrounds, Part 2:

Iraq – Iraq is firmly in the grip of a Military Dictatorship. The opposition Ba’th Party has been actively trying to overthrow the current government and replace it with one of their own. Iraq is a key supplier of oil, and is it hope that turbulence in this country does not affect its oil output. Another problem facing this country is the deep split between the two main branches of Islam, Sunni and Shiite, in the country.

Ireland – Ireland is a free country, consisting of 26/32 of the Irish Provinces. It is slowly rebuilding relations with the UK, but this process is slow and painful. It’s economy is on the downturn, and corruption and high government expenses are a major problem in this country. This country is small and poor, but is slowly trying to overcome that. It also is trying to entice Irish expats in the USA and other countries to return to their homeland.

Israel – This Jewish nation was born of war, and war has defined it. It has consistently defeated the armies that the Arabs have thrown at it, and, each time, Israel has either gained land, or had a valid excuse to expel more Palestinians from its lands. The current tensions are greatest with Egypt, who is trying to get Soviet support to help it finally defeat Israel. Israel is strongly supported by both ITO and CAN, more so by the latter then the former. The CSA has a long list of agreements with Israel, and Arabic nations consequently have an intense dislike for the CSA. The USA is trying to rebuild its reputation with these nations, and increasingly is growing more neutral in the dispute between Israel and its neighbours.

Italy – This nation has emerged from World War II, but is still politically quite divided. It constantly elects weak minority governments who quickly fall, which is seriously affecting the stability and economy of this nation. Coupled with Leftist and Sicilian Terrorists, and organized crime, this nation has serious problems that it needs to deal with. It is a fairly important member of ITO, and usually goes along with the USA.

Japan – Japan lost the War in the Pacific, and the effects of this remain significant. Japanese war crimes remain a major irritant between it and many of its neighbours. It has a pacifist Constitution, and is building up its economy. Japan has some of the most liberal trade rules in the world, which have helped it turn into an economic tiger. In ITO, it does not take part in any discussions or debates which involve military matters. Otherwise, it firmly supports the USA.

Jordan – The major issue facing this nation is Israel. Tensions are quickly rising between this Muslim nation created by the UK, and Israel. It instigated a war against Israel before, and is allegedly planning to do the same again. The people firmly support their King, which speaks about the stability of this mostly desert nation.

Kenya – One of the few successes in Africa, this nation has managed to not succumb to a coup. There have been only 2 attempts, and new rules brought in to curb the Military’s power seem to be working. This nation’s economy was going fairly well, and then the President decided that only government spending and radically altering economic laws would make his nation more powerful. That was two years ago. Now Government spending is through the roof, and the country’s economy is in danger of collapsing. Aside from the economy doing poorly, this nation is better off then most African nations.

North Korea – Still in a state of war with the south, this country is facing multiple crises. First and foremost, its massive military is bankrupting the nation’s treasury, leaving the nation on the brink of collapse. Bad economic policies and rampant corruption are making the situation worse. Finally, the lack of arable land means that most are hungry in this nation, except for, of course, the military. Some suspect that this regime might be on the brink of collapse, especially if the PRC collapses.

South Korea – This is the other half of Korea. Ruled by a popular General, this country is a Dictatorship. It enjoys strong military and economic support from the USA and CSA. It has mostly rebuilt after the Korean War, and it is now slowly implementing some basic democratic reforms, pressured by the USA. ITO is currently debating allowing South Korea to join.

Kuwait – This small oil-rich kingdom is a key supplier of oil to the USA. Its Monarchy is very loyal to the USA, especially since the USA prevented Kuwait from being conquered by Iraq in 1961 and 1963. Iraq, however, has not completely given up on that goal.

Laos – This nation is barely hanging together as a cohesive unit. Its current Government barely has control of the capital city, never mind the whole country. Communist Vietnamese and PRC Forces are engaging US and South Vietnamese troops on Laotian soil, and Laos can do little about it. A pro-Communist rebellion seems set to make this nation yet another Communist-controlled state.

Liberia – This nation is a very isolated one. Its participation in World War II, and allowed a major US tire company access to its rubber are the only recent events that concern it in foreign affairs. A large rubber plantation and increasing trade are the reason for its economy growth of late. Of course, corruption and increased spending are putting a cap on that growth. This nation is poor, and that poverty doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon.

Libya – Recent Oil Wealth is beginning to transform this once poor and desert nation. Of course, the people have yet to see any sign of this wealth, which is simply one of the factors that are working against the current King. Rumours of a coup have been swirling, and unrest is growing in some parts of the country. increased arab nationalism is another problem that the King must deal with.

Madagascar – This island nation is facing some serious trouble. Its current Socialist Government is facing massive coordinated sustained antigovernment protestors. This despite the fact that this government is only 2 years old, and has 3 years left on its term in office. These protests have caused no end of troubles for the current government, and will have serious long-term consequences on this nation.

Malawi – This story has been repeated across Africa. The UK granted freedom to this nation just 1 year ago. It had elections, a Democratic Constitution, and a promising future. Then the leader scraps the Constitution, and declares himself President-for-life. This is Malawi. It is dirt-poor, with almost no infrastructure. Over farming has left some land unusable. This country has serious problems that are eerily familiar to Africa.

Malaysia – This large Muslim nation was recently created out of many small kingdoms. It’s economy is growing, and it remains firmly democratic. It has some difficulties between various religions and cultural groups that it needs to overcome, however.

Mali – Rampant corruption, extreme poverty, and a lack of natural resources are all working against this desert African country. It is extremely poor, and has little way of escaping from that. It also recently gained Independence.

Mauritania – Violence between the Moors and the Arabs is the biggest challenge facing this nation. It is extremely poor, with hardly any arable land or resources. Most of its population are nomadic, and the Capital city, the only city, is still under construction.

Mexico – This is a large, poor nation. It has been governed by a conservative party, which consistently gets re-elected. Mexico is a functioning democracy, other political parties are granted, and some rights, much more then other members in CAN, but it remains mired in poverty. The Government recently tried to implement some economic reforms, but they backfired badly. Mexico granted land to the CSA on its West Coast so the CSA can have a Pacific Seaport. It is attempting to crush an indigenous uprising in the south, which it blames on the USSR supporting Communists.

Mongolia – There is not much to say about this nation, besides the fact that is has a Communist Dictatorship, and is a close ally of the USSR. It is very poor, and its economy is stagnating. This nation is extremely isolated, and has little contact with the outside world.

Morocco – Spain has resisted letting go of this colony, claiming that Morocco signed a treaty with Spain to be its colony, and that treaty is still valid. Moroccans are starting to actively resist against Spanish rule, however, and this struggle is growing greater as time goes on. Muslim nationalism is also adding to the troubles Spain faces in this colony.

Mozambique – A colony of Portugal, this nation has an armed struggle that is trying to overthrow the Portuguese colonizers. Portugal is fighting that, however, since it is currently making lots of money off of this colony. Mozambique’s natural resources are also being exploited by Portugal.

Myanmar – This nation is, once again, under the control of a military dictatorship. This is a poor nation, without much hope. The Military’s economic policies have led what little foreign investors there were to flee to other places, and the world seems to be ignoring this nation.

Nepal – This mountainous nation is finally stabilized. After years of squabbling between the Monarchy and Democratically elected parliament, the nation has finally agreed upon a system of government that seems to be working. India had a large part to play in these discussions. The political system here is unique, but essentially the people directly elect the Ministers in the Government, who then choose the President. The Monarchy still exists, in case this system fails. Communist influences from the PRC, as well as dire poverty remain big issues this country will need to deal with, however.

Netherlands – The Dutch people have had a long and proud history. Their small nation has been very influential in the world. Today, this nation has rebuilt totally from World War II, and it is one of the most desirable nations to live in. It is highly industrialized, and has one of the best education and health care systems in the world. It is very left-wing, however, and this has had an impact on the world. In ITO, the Netherlands is seen as a thorn in the USA’s side. It has consistently said that the USA’s stances on Communism are anti-democratic, and leads the charge against military action on Communism. The US and Netherlands have verbally clashed more times in ITO meetings then any other nations. The Netherlands remains fundamentally Democratic though, and the Dutch cherish their freedoms. The Freedom Liberals have a very strong influence in this nation.

New Zealand – This is a small fairly isolated nation. It is not in ITO, although some in New Zealand are pressing for it to be. It has a small military, and is very pacifist. It has some unresolved issues with its indigenous people, which date back to when it was created by the British. It is attempting to resolve those issues.

Niger – This story has been repeated many times, and it occurs again in Niger. Granted freedom by France recently, this ex-colony is in the grip of a dictator. Its economy is doing very poorly, and its people remain poor. It has some natural resources, but less then its neighbours.

Nigeria – This nation is somewhat better off then many in Africa. It remains a Democracy after gaining independence, but recent rumours and events suggest that this might come to an end. The government is a minority one, and does not get much done. Elections that were held resulted in a very weak government. This nation has a large population based, and is blessed with many natural resources. It also must deal with a Muslim North and a Christian South, and try and bridge cultural and religious differences between the two parts of Nigeria.

North Vietnam – This nation is currently at war with, and presently winning against, South Vietnam. It is Communist, and being supported by the PRC and Soviets. This war has been going on for many years, and is having a devastating effect upon this nation and region. It is fighting against the technologically superior forces of the USA, CSA, and various coalition members. Much of this nation has been bombed, attacked, and retaken time and time again, and this war has no end in sight. Casualty rates are unknown, but whatever nation emerges at the end of this war will be a broken one.

Norway – This is one of the Scandinavian nations. It is of strategic important to ITO, being close to where the Soviets send Submarines into the Pacific to spy on their enemies. ITO has several large bases here. Norway has been slowly building up its military bases, and the discovery of oil here has helped the economy. It remains a fairly liberal nation, and generally is against military action against communists.

Pakistan – This nation is presently at war with the PRC over Kashmir. It has temporarily halted its war with India to focus on crushing the PRC in Kashmir. Pakistan is currently facing protests demanding a return to democracy. It also is facing Muslim extremists who are conducting an armed insurgency to try and force the Military to introduce a Theocracy. The large wealth difference between the East and Western parts of the country, as well as the seeming dominance of the East is causing problems for this nation as well.

Paraguay – This nation has been under the control of a dictator for about a decade. There is not much that is remarkable about this nation. It is somewhat small, fairly poor, and is a member of CAN. It faces some leftist insurgencies and has some issues with its aboriginal peoples, but those are relatively minor problems.

Peru – This nation has been under the control of a Military Dictatorship for many years. In recent years though, the General in control of this nation surprised the world when he announced that the Constitution would be changed. Now, the Military is in charge of Foreign Affairs and Security, and a Civilian President is elected, along with a Parliament, to take care of almost all other issues. The system has led to a rebound in the economy, and seems to be working well. Peru’s neighbours are examining the system to see if they could implement it as well.

Philippines – This nation has a wide array of problems. It has historical ties to the USA and CSA, and it was conquered from the Spanish by the Japanese during World War II. Rebels in the Philippines organized to fight the Japanese. After the war, a Republic was formed, but the rebels re-organized themselves to be Marxist, and are fighting for the Philippines to become a Marxist Republic. They have wide support in the country. Muslims in the south have also begun a rebellion, leaving the government with more then it can handle. This is a very poor nation, with a high debt, and very isolated. Many suspect this nation will soon collapse.

Poland – This is another Eastern European nation firmly under the thumb of Moscow. Nothing happens here without the agreement of Moscow. The people don’t like the situation, but have little choice. This is a very Catholic country, and the Communists have been cracking down on that religion in this country.

Portugal – This country is a powerful one mainly because of its colonies that it retains. Those are costly to Portugal in terms of troops, but they provide cheap natural resources which are what is driving the Portuguese economy. There are growing pressures in the ruler of this nation to allow some more freedoms and rights, and he is slowly going that. Also, the colonies are growing increasing restive, and are starting to demand independence.

Romania – This nation remains firmly in the grip of Moscow. The people have been terrorized by a campaign by the Soviets to suppress some political and student protests at the new government. The economy is slowly recovering from the Soviet-initiated economic reforms.

Rwanda - This nation is deeply split between the majority Hutu and minority Tutsis. The hut presently run the country, but tensions between the two groups remain high. Belgium, the former colonial master discriminated against the Hutus in preferences of the Tutsis, and this is causing a lot of strife in this country. This nation is poor, underdeveloped, and suffering under an authoritarian government.

Saudi Arabia – This nation is one of the few remaining with an absolute monarchy in place. It has been using its vast oil to its advantage and in a bad way for the USA. It has began modernizing the nation, beginning with Mecca and Medina. It since moved onto its military, buying billions of dollars of equipment from the Soviets. With a larger military, it started annexing its neighbours. When the USA complained, and tried to intervene, Saudi Arabia threatened to turn off the flow of oil. Without its main oil supply, the USA’s economy would collapse, so the USA was helpless to respond to the threat. The threat facing this nation is a looming power struggle in the Royal Family, and Fundamentalist Muslims wanting to overthrow the monarchy and create a theocracy. Neither has had a significant impact yet. The people in the nations that this Kingdom recently conquered are also demanding that they be granted freedom again, which is causing instability.

Senegal – This nation recently gained independence from Europe. It then proceeded to have its democratic government overthrown, its constitution rewritten, and a military junta rule it instead. Like much of Africa, it remains poor.

Sierra Leone – This nation was recently granted freedom from being a colony. Then the Military overthrew the democratically elected Government, and installed a General as President. Part of the country rebelled, and a devastating civil war currently is gripping the country. The economy is in tatters, as well as most of the nation.

Somalia – The British and Italians combined their separate colonies to make what was supposed to be a democratic, peaceful nation. That last for about 4 months. Then the military overthrew the government, and installed a Colonel as President. Tribal warfare is currently the biggest problem facing this country, along with crippling poverty.

South Africa – This nation is currently in the reigns of an apartheid government. Black people have almost no rights in this nation. Most of the world refuses to deal with South Africa, which is seriously affecting its economy. It remains a democracy, but one party has held on to power for many years. It is trying to deal with insurgencies demanding power for Black South Africans, and there is growing resentment among white South Africans that it is time to slowly start granting some rights to black people in this nation.

South Vietnam – Communist North Vietnam is currently trying to, and somewhat succeeding at conquering this nation, and uniting Vietnam. The Government is very weak and hated by the population, and on the verge of collapse. The army of this nation is very ill-trained. In fact, the only reason this nation hasn’t collapsed is because of the 600,000 USA and CSA troops on its soil. The people are tired of the war, and are generally in favour of some kind of peaceful unification process.

Spain – Spain is one of the few remaining Fascist regimes in the world. It is a staunch ally of the CSA, and has been so since the CSA rescued the Philippines from the USA and gave it back to Spain. Spain has helped the CSA forge CAN, and helped it make many of the Dictatorships in South America. Spain has a series of internal problems. The most pressing are the Basque and Catalan insurgencies, which are tying up a lot of Spain’s armies. Also, the Spanish colonies are beginning to get more and more rebellious, especially Morocco. Finally, people in Spain are beginning to press for some democracy, rights, and freedoms.

Sri Lanka – This nation is performing quite well. It is a colourful mosaic of cultures and languages on a picture-perfect island. The government has been reducing the size of the military, and spending those savings on infrastructure and social services. The economy is performing fairly well. Differences between the majority Sinhalese and minority Tamil are starting to become more persistent, however. The Tamils are increasingly pressing for some form of autonomy, so they can run the areas that they are the majority the way they want, according to their traditions and culture. The Sinhalese seem to be agreed, and the Swiss are trying to negotiate a long-term agreement. There is little to stop this nation from becoming a fairly powerful one in this area of the world, however.

Sudan – Sudan has just been granted independence, and has just embarked on a devastating Civil War. It is between the Northern Muslims and the Southern Christians. It is in the early stages, but it seems like it will be brutal and long. The economy of this desert nation has been severely hampered by the fighting already. The British are attempting to negotiate an end to hostilities.

Suriname – This colony is a part of the Netherlands. The Surinamese seem to like the relationship, especially since the Netherlands has invested a lot of money in this small but resource-rich country. The Netherlands also is getting rich off the relationship. The Dutch Government says that it will consider independence for Suriname in around 10 years.

Sweden – This very left-wing country is what many call the classic example of a welfare state. Everybody has a guaranteed income, regardless of social stature. Swedes are very anti-Military, though, and this effect is seen with the success of the Freedom Liberals here. The Swedish Military is capped at its current level, that is, it cannot go any higher. Also, any retirees will not be replaced. It also cannot be used for offensive military purposes. In two years, there will be a referendum on whether or not Sweden should have a Military. Sweden is a very left-wing country that is very pacifist, and this is represented in its international diplomacy.

Switzerland – This country is the world’s only totally neutral nation. It supports no side but peace, according to its Constitution. It has been heralded as the most democratic, with frequent citizen-initiated referenda on major issues. It houses the UN and other international organizations. It has diplomatically resolved at least 20 major international incidents, whether they be wars or near-wars. NOTE – Any player taking this Nation will need to keep neutral, unless you can convince Swiss otherwise.

Syria – Syria has been increasing its Military power of late, following the most recent coup by a group of leftist soldiers. It is working with Egypt and other countries against the Israelis, whom it is fanatically opposed to. It recently conquered Lebanon, and is busy putting down rebellions resulting from that. It is a complex nation, with various tribes and cultures. It’s government is fairly well respected, and it faces no serious threats.

Tanzania – This is yet another typical African country. Britain recently granted it independence, and then it succumbed to a Military coup. It has been under a Military Leadership ever since, impoverished, and with little hope of getting out of its cycle of poverty.

Thailand – A string of military coups has left this nation weakened and in shambles. Consecutive wars among various tribes and factions culminated in a near civil war recently. The present Military Dictatorship is fighting a Muslim insurgency in the south of the country as well as pro-Democracy forces in various areas of the country.

Togo – This country didn’t wait a couple years for its Democratic Government to be overthrown like some other ex-colonies. Immediately when the French left, the Military overthrew the Government, and has been in charge since. This country is a bit more stable then other countries, but still very poor.

Tunisia – This former French colony is still a Democratic Government, and attempting some limited economic and political reforms. This is a fairly stable country, just very poor.

Turkey – This nation has firmly aligned itself with the West, and is a proud member of ITO, the only mainly Muslim nation to be so. Turkey is unofficially at war with Greece over Cyprus, and that conflict is causing tensions within the ITO, but both nations claiming all of Cyprus. Turkey is attempting to reform its corrupt Government, and liberalize the economy. It also has to deal with a growing number of fundamentalist Muslims and the Kurds in the Southeast.

Uganda – Uganda is still technically a Democracy, but the current Prime Minister is getting increasingly authoritarian. There are reports circling that he will commit a coup, and gain power in this country. Uganda’s economy is doing fairly well, but a coup would devastate it.

NATIONAL BACKGROUNDS PART 3


Spoiler for National Backgrounds, Pt 2:

United Kingdom – This country one ruled an empire upon which the sun never set. Literally. It is still in charge of the Commonwealth, which has many of its former colonies, but the power of the UK has faded badly. Hitler damaged the pride of this proud nation by managing to land forces on it, even though he was defeated. Nationalistic pride is on the increase with the Conservatives, which means a bigger military, and the UK becoming increasingly involved in international affairs. The UK is often touted as a preferred alternative to the USA as leader of ITO, given that it is a European nation, and its values are more aligned with that of Europe, but the UK has yet to show any willingness to take the position. This is a powerful nation, and very influential. The UK is currently pressing for Europe to unite more in trade and economically, but it has yet to be seen how far this push will go.

United Socialist Soviet Republics – This nation is massive, and exerts influence the world over. It is Communist, and is the leader of Communist nations the world over. Its economy is massive, yet totally centrally planned. All workers are treated as heroes, and everybody is theoretically equal. In reality, this is not the case. Its 5 year plans have stimulated the economy recently, but massive amounts of bureaucracy and massive military costs are draining Moscow’s coffers. It supports pro-Communist groups the world over, sometimes with money, sometimes with arms, sometimes just politically. The nation's economy is doing fairly well, and Soviets are mostly supportive of their government. The people work, and are generally happy. Dissent is crushed with the feared KGB. The only reason that this nation is kept together is because of massive prisons in the East, and the secret police. Fear and secrecy are the hallmarks of this nation that professes to liberate workers from the evils of capitalism. The people know this, and are beginning to tire of it. Internationally, the USSR has many nations and groups that it needs to support, and this is only further decreasing the amounts in its coffers. The fight against capitalism is very expensive for Moscow. It also must compete against the USA and CSA for political power, influence, and in space. The Soviets have many challenges on their hands.

United States of America – Ahh, the USA. The bastion of freedom and democracy. At least, that is what the USA wants the world to believe. The USA is characterizing the Cold War as a struggle between the darkness and evil of Communism with the glorious freedoms and rights of the USA. As head of ITO, and one of the three superpowers, the Unionists do their best to ensure that the world is a healthy democratic place. The USA’s powerful economy is mostly thanks to the structure of the country. Capitalism is glorified here. Companies are enticed by the USA through its laws and taxation system. The raw resources to power this massive economy come partially from the USA, but mostly from Canada, a fact lost on the majority of Americans. The people who produce the goods in America are foreigners. Thousands of immigrants come every year, preferably those with training, to the land of freedom. Immigration has defined America, but there is a growing backlash. America was once white, now it is being forced to accept a multicultural rainbow of colours, from all parts of the world. The USA is anti-Communist, yet a landmark Supreme Court ruling said that the USA is infringing upon basic freedoms if it bans Communism in the USA. The USA also must expend billions of dollars each year to maintain its presence around the world, keep up in the space race, and aids it allies. The USA is a large and challenging nation, and has many burdens placed upon its shoulders.

Upper Volta – This African nation recently gained Independence. It is still democratic, but the military is becoming increasingly concerned with the seeming bumbling of the government, and its inability to crack down upon endemic corruption. Rumours of coups grow stronger by the day. Upper Volta is poor, with little infrastructure.

Uruguay – This small South American nation is in trouble. Being that it is heavily dependant on agriculture, dropping prices for agricultural goods are beginning to ravage the economy. Workers are being unemployed, government revenues are crumbling, and the nation looks set for an economic crisis. Protests against the government are escalating, and the government is looking to CAN for help.

Venezuela – This nation was supposed to be a Democracy. It had finally gotten rid of its last military government in 1958, and held elections. About 1 month after the Liberals won, the Army regained control, backed by the CSA. The military government is facing increasing protests by civilians who want their democracy back. This is forcing the government to increasing crack down, and impose curfews, which is only getting the crowds angrier and angrier. The situation is getting more and more serious, and CAN might be forced to intervene.

West Germany – This is the other half of Germany, the prosperous half. Germany has been rebuilt, and only as the efficient Germans can. The economy of this nation is only lower then it was before because Socialists won an election, and implemented some policies which had bad effects for the economy. The Conservatives are back in power, and are undoing the harm the Socialists did. A major issue facing Germany is reunification and their pacifist constitution. Germans are arguing that they could provide troops to the ITO to help them defeat the Communists, which Germany is in favour of. ITO has been considering the move, but no firm moves yet.

Yugoslavia – This country is under the rule of a Communist party, but is not technically a Communist state. People are allowed to earn income, taxed naturally, private companies are allowed. Most of the economy is state-owned, however, at arm’s length. It is an interesting blend of Communism and Capitalism, and it seems to be working for this nation. This is a very diverse nation, and most agree that it would have a difficult time being transformed into a unified democratic state. Also of note is that it recently had a falling out with the Soviets, and so is no longer part of the Soviet sphere of influence. It has joined the NAP though. This nation is slowly liberalizing its economy, and slowly privatizing more of the economy. The leadership of this nation seems to be more unstable over time as arguments between the reformists and traditionalists run their course.

Zambia – This is a small poor nation that is surrounded by nations that don’t particularly like it. The Democracy established by the British remains intact, but the nation’s economy is in very poor shape. It is having troubles trading with its neighbours, and ending its dire poverty. The country is stable enough, but the enduring poverty is beginning to wear down some of its citizens.

Zimbabwe – This nation is under the rule of a white minority government, backed largely by the military. Like South Africa, this country faces a wide array of problems. The black majority are increasingly demanding an end to the apartheid, and the protests are increasingly being met by bullets and shells. The economy is not performing very well, and many whites are wondering how long the present situation can last. The country just unilaterally declared Independence from the UK, but this is not recognized by most of the world.

ALLIANCES


Spoiler for Alliances:

The world is generally split into 4 great alliances. 3 of them are political, that is, they have a united political bent to them. They are the ITO, CAN and Comintern. The ITO (International Treaty Organization) is generally center-left, CAN (Confederation of Allied Nations) is at the right end of the political spectrum, and Comintern (Communism International) is at the extreme left end of the political spectrum. Generally speaking, ITO nations are politically moderate democracies, CAN nations are military-run dictatorships, and Comintern are Communist Dictatorships. These three organizations are in direct competition with each other for power. They each control about ¼ of the world, in political, demographic or physical measures.

All three have a clause in their constitution that stipulates that if one is attacked by any other nation, all nations have been attacked. This rule has been bent at times, to prevent a world war, but generally is in effect for countries recognized by all around the world. For instance, because the Republic of China and People's Republic of China are not recognized by many nations around the world, and in a highly militarized state, the rules might be bent if war were to break out between them. The member nations also can fight between each other, although the other members generally try and halt this. The two most prominent examples are the People's Republic of China and the USSR, who are fighting a border war, or Turkey and Greece, ITO members fighting over Cyprus.

The fourth alliance is the NAP (Non-Aligned Pact) composed of most other nations that are neutral, and don't belong to all three of the other alliances. This organization has no coherent political bent, given that all nations in it vary. The current leader of this organization is India, but this position varies among members.

There is generally one nation which leads each alliance, and this position is selected by a vote. The current leader of Comintern is the USSR, of the ITO is the USA, and of CAN is the CSA. Those three nations are also the most powerful in their respective alliance. They have the most influence, and are the most respected. The players of those 3 nations will be responsible for all affairs dealing with those organizations. I highly recommend that you make a separate thread for your alliance. I will then use that for NPC diplomacy with you. It is also a good way to resolve internal disputes. You are more then welcome to put some time in the thread, flags, a constitution, make a flag or emblem for the organization, but this is not necessary.

International Treaty Organization (ITO)

Member Nations:

• Australia
• Austria
• Belgium
• Canada
• Denmark
• Finland
• France
• Greece
• Iceland
• Italy
• Japan
• South Korea
• Netherlands
• New Zealand
• Norway
• Sweden
• Turkey
• UK
• USA
• West Germany


Led by the United States, this organization is composed of mostly politically centrist democratic nations. Members agree to actions by votes, and an attack by one is considered an attack on all. These nations vary politically from the very left-wing Sweden and Norway to the more conservative Australia and France. Compared to the Comintern and CAN, this organization is politically center-left.

This organization is the least unified of all three. It faces a number of internal challenges, the major one being the increasing pacifism of certain members. The USA has been increasingly pressing for members to become more active in what it calls a “war against communism”. This involves, according to the US strategy, fighting against communism by supporting democratic movements with money and moral support around the world. But the USA also wants the ITO to step up the military fight against communism, especially in places such as the Chinas, Vietnams, Koreas, and Eastern Europe. This has been resisted by key members of this alliance, like the Netherlands, Belgium, and Sweden, who say that there are better alternatives then sending their young to die in what they characterize as “wasteful battles which turn world opinion against our goals”. The Freedom Liberals are suspected to be playing a part in these decisions. Thus far, the USA has managed to smooth over the increasingly divisive debates, but the ITO will need to find a unified position in its war against Communism.

The other major problem affecting the ITO is the fact that the USA is the leader of this organization. Some countries, particularly France, Austria, West Germany and Italy, would prefer to see a European country in charge of ITO. The USA is regarded by many in Europe as a “colony”, and the fact that a colony is leading them, rather then one of them is an embarrassment to some Europeans. The UK has been widely suggested as a more suitable alternative to the USA, and it certainly would have a lot of support. The issue has yet to come to a vote, but the USA knows that scheming is occurring, and so it will need to ensure that it maintains its current position.

It is important to state that these three alliances are fanatically opposed to one another. Both the ITO and CAN are fighting against Communism, and the ITO and CAN are barely on speaking terms after their war in Panama. These organizations work against one another, not with or for each other. You can coordinate some activities, such as the CAN and ITO coordinating some military activities in Vietnam, but that is out of necessity, nothing else.

Communism International (Comintern)

Member Nations:

• Albania
• Bolivia
• Bulgaria
• PRC
• Cuba
• Czechoslovakia
• East Germany
• Hungary
• North Korea
• Mongolia
• North Vietnam
• Poland
• Romania
• USSR

This is the international Communist Organization, led by the USSR. It stands for “Communism International”, and members must “stand true to the liberation policies of Lenin”. The USSR absolutely controls those Eastern European Countries, and so has absolute control over what happens in the organization. Debate is very minimal, and most votes are unanimous. Compared to the other major organizations, this organization is politically left-wing.

The major problem with this organization is in-fighting among the USSR and PRC. The PRC has been increasingly demanding that it should be the leader of Comintern. It says that it has the bigger population, and it “will never deviate from the values of Mao and Lenin”, a veiled threats against the USSR. The USSR controls more then enough votes to ensure that it stays firmly in charge of the Comintern, but the China issue is an increasingly big thorn in Stalin’s side. China and the USSR are fighting a border war, which both heavily deny. The PRC is also very unstable, it has a high turnover rate for its top leaders, and it is trying to industrialize, fight several insurgencies, pacify its population, and support some of its close allies in the region. This is causing some instability within the Comintern, which the USSR is fighting hard against. This is a major issue for the USSR and the Comintern to deal with.

Confederation of Allied Nations (CAN)

Member Nations:

• Argentina
• Brazil
• CC
• Chile
• Colombia
• CSA
• CPCA
• Ecuador
• Guyana
• Mexico
• Paraguay
• Peru
• Portugal
• Spain
• Uruguay
• Venezuela

This is the organization led by the CSA. Most nations agree on almost all issues, and the CSA has the greatest amount of influence. The nations in this organization are nearly all right-wing military-run dictatorships, with exceptions having elected very right-wing governments. CAN nations are somewhat poorer, but put much more emphasis on military spending.

CAN is the most unified of all the organizations, but it still has its internal issues. The overwhelming one at the moment is Communism. CAN sees Communism as the greatest threat facing the world. It is vigorously fighting against it, both at home, and abroad, and with military force. CAN is most active in the fight against Communism in the Orient, in the Chinas, Vietnam and South Korea. Increasingly, however, it is fighting a war at home. CAN was humiliated with the Soviet success in Bolivia, and it is determined that this should not repeat. Communist activities in countries like Peru and Columbia, with ongoing leftist insurgencies, are being heavily clamped down upon. Massive military operations are taking place, and political activists are being jailed, or worse, killed. Amnesty International calls it a “vicious narrow-minded baseless massacre of the sort has never been seen before”, but CAN claims that it is “protecting itself against Communist Aggression”. The USSR is strongly suspected of funding and helping the various insurgencies, but no proof has been offered.

Non-Aligned Pact (NAP)

This organization was created by India and Switzerland, and its aim is to solve conflicts between members and around the world in a non-violent manner. All members are officially “neutral” in all disputes by signing the NAP Articles, and try to solve disputes through dialog. This group supports the beleaguered UN, and has resolved some disputes in the past. It is very quiet, and doesn't often get involved in political issues. It is not considered one of the Big 3 world coalitions. India is being courted by all of the Big 3, but has yet to join any. Trade issues have recently become a more important issue with some nations of this organization, such as Switzerland, a strong advocate of free trade. In reality, this organization does little. It's members are very diverse, and rarely agree on many points.

Sounds awesome. Though the CSA winning the Civil War and existing long after that is rather far fecthed. The CSA would have after the threath by the Union had passed most likeley fallen apart politically and economically and then would have no choice be be reintegrated in the USA. The fractious nataure of the Southern States along with the agrarian slave based economy makes things extremely difficult for them.

Anyway can we reserve nations?

if so I would like

Afraid I have to agree with silver; its rather unlikely an althist, very unlikely actually. I'd post my specific grudges, but as they demand a total revision you will, ofcourse, reject them (and that will be the only right thing to do, as i would have done so myself), so there isn't much of a point to it.

Anyway, good luck - we need more modern NESes.

Well, this is a good lot of responses thus far!

This is going to be a reoccurring question, what silver posted, so I might as well explain it here, and try to explain it better in the Background.

In real life, the CSA came pretty close to winning. Not by military might, it was mostly because the North had a pretty strong peace movement growing. The North was supposed to crush the South in a matter of months, thats what the North's politicians promised. Well, it soon turned into a multiyear war, and the young men of the North kept on dying. The peace movement in the North was growing quite strong, and I have read in multiple places theories that if the South got a resounding defeat in one battle, I chose Gettysburg, then it might have won.

The reason I chose Gettysburg is because it was a bit of a turning point in real life. I had Lee resounding defeat Meade's armies. Once the news spread to the rest of the Union, the peace movement would grow much stronger, and be able to pressure their politicians. I mean, imagine what you would say if part of your country split, and your leaders promised a quick war to take them back into the fold. Then imagine that war turned out to take several years, with no end in sight.

The peace movement, which had growing political clout, managed to pressure the Unionist Government to sign a temperory truce, during which time it could debate what it should do next. The Government succumbs to the pressure, and signs a ceasefire with the Rebels. This gives the rebels the precious time it needs. This is what won the war for the Confederacy. It had those 18 months to organize its nation, form a proper government, get its armies restocked and prepared, etc. 18 months later, the CSA is much more prepared to fight against the Unionists. When the ceasefire expires, the CSA and USA fight some more, but nothing really changes. Overtime, the war continues, but turns from a war of military might to poliical and diplomatic. The USA and CSA vie for power and influence around the world, in their separate ways.

Eventually, they sign truces over all borders except for the 3 states which are split, and both sides claim. Those being Kentucky, Missouri, and New Mexico. They continue to fight over those for many years, with the battle lines not changing much. The CSA sticks together because they believe that if they separate, then the USA will invade, and make the USA whole again. Also, the CSA Government Structure is VERY decentralized. The central government only really is responsible for the National Army and Foreign Affairs. The individual states have autonomy over everything else. And the central government usually listens to what the states suggest with regard to international affairs.

The USA, on the other hand, has been humiliated. They lost, and refuse to give up the states that are still being fought over. The CSA obviously refuses to give up those three states. So the Unionists and Confederates remain deadlocked over that issue, and others. They are politically different, the USA is more liberal, the CSA much more conservative, more traditional. And then fast-forward the situation to 1966, throwing in the Communists.

For the record, I have done my best to ensure that all 3 alliances are pretty much equal. The ITO and CAN are composed of more less powerful nations. Comintern has two massive nations, the Soviets, which control the majority of counrties and money in Comintern, and the PRC. The PRC is, well, not exactly a whole nation yet. I am not going to be unduly biased. I am going to do my best to be neutral. Politically, I am pretty conservative, but I am going to do my best to be neutral. I will explain more about that later.

Anywy, welcome everybody, and thanks for signing on! Kal'thzar, remember that Switzerland is neutral, and I do mean neutral. Your main foray into international politics will be trying to negotiate an end to armed conflicts, of which, well, there is MANY.
