The UN Vote - 1735
Year: 1710 (Warlord)
Scenario: The mighty Babylonians have marched through the industrial age making servants of the now forgotten Zulus, French, Russians and Persians. They have shown their superiority in both warfare and welfare in subduing the earth and by gifting a minimum of seven technologies (as well as resources) to each of the remaining three nations; the Americans, Aztecs and Iroquois. Culture (68,000) and great cities (Babylon @ 6500) tower over the insignificant foreigners. The mighty tank army (60 strong) destroyed Persia in five moves, and now rests comfortable at home with their family. All is well in Babylon.
Event: Babylon has now reached the ultimate height of their civilization by building the United Nations! It is now time for the Iroquois and Americans to pay homage to their king and end this game. Babylon will not wait for total conquest or a culture victory. It demands homage and an U.N. vote.
“What? Did I hear correctly? America has declared war against the unstoppable Babylonians! The same Americans who sat out the wars against the Zulus, the French, the Russians and the Persians. The Americans who send out horseman and spearman against my tanks! The same backward Americans who are living in shacks without electricity and running water. ARE THEY SUICIDAL? Please, advisors, tell me it’s not true.”
“Yes, your Lordship, it is true. They have declared war and have taken the border town of Philly. They now have their military on the foothold of our borders.”
“Advisors, do we have a town called Philly?”
“Yes my Lord, you built that town last turn, along with the other ten towns you established throughout your empire."
"Oh yes, I had almost forgotten.”
“Advisors, I am tired and weary. I need a majority of votes in the U.N. to win.”
“Your Lordship, you could go to bed and believe this was a dream, or you could send in the military, destroy America, and have a re-vote. I’m sure the Iroquois will side with you, as they are gracious of you.”
“Yes, yes, yes. You are right. I can always sleep tomorrow. Be done with it and get me that vote.”
“Yes my Lord.”
So, the advisors send in the cavalry and the tanks, and dismantle everything in their paths. Workers pursue the fight, immediately building railroads from conquered city to conquered city, and cleaning pollution from the homeland.
“My Lord, Washington is ours, as well as the final Great Wonder. All of the Great Wonders are now in our possession. Three cities remain. Should we take them now and end Lincoln’s antics?”
“No, not now. It’s been two hours. It’s time for bed. Another day, another city. The U.N. vote can wait. For now, remind the Iroquois that the fate of these other nations will be their fate is they vote against me. I’m tired, and I want to move up to Regent.”
“Yes my Lord. I shall remind them. I’m sure they have heard of your exploits.”
The advisors recounting of the fate of the Zulus, the French, the Russians and the Persians to the Iroquois:
“My friends, the Iroquois, let me recount the fate of our former neighbors the Zulus, the French, the Russians and the Persians, and remind you of our great leader’s mercy and wrath.”
“In the older days, our nation was in short supply of saltpeter. We searched throughout our domain and none was to be found. The Persians and the Zulus had plenty of saltpeter, so much so that much of it went wasted. My Lord felt it wise to settle three towns next to the Persian saltpeter in order to supply our growing civilization with what it needed. These cities grew richly and expanded into the saltpeter fields, and we were satisfied. Yet, for reasons unbeknown to our King, the weak and frail Zulu kingdom declared war on my King. This sudden and unexpected turn of friendship awakened my Lord to the evil that surrounded his kingdom. We enlisted your help, as well as the French and the Aztecs, to punish this unlawful act. Our cavalry charged forward, crossing the sea in our fleet of galleons, and counterattacked our enemies. It was a quick battle, with the Aztecs taking a few cities to the east, the French captured a few of the central cities, and my Lord collected the rest of the Zulu domains and their Great Wonders into his storehouse.”
“My king was friendly towards the Persians for supplying our people with saltpeter, so he made a Mutual Protection Pact with them. He was concerned that since they were weaker and frailer than any other nation, that they would be attacked and overcome. So he lent our support to this fragile nation. Yet, the Persians dealt unkindly to my King. The immediately declared war against our friends the French, thereby drawing us into a war we did not want."
“Advisors, what shall we do? France is our neighbor and friend. Should we attack, or lay back and wait?"
“My Lord, the have plenty of rubber, and we have none. It is a great opportunity granted to us by the heavens to enrich our people and develop our military.”
“Wisely spoken. I need rubber to fulfill my dreams of having tanks. Do what you must do, and bring me back some rubber.”
"As your historians have written, the Persians never entered into this war. By time their feeble troops crossed through the Russian territory, our artillery and cavalry had destroyed the French, capturing their Great Wonders, collecting samples of the marvelous rubber and subduing their entire population.”
“We were greatly relieved after this war was over and envisioned years of peace for our people. Yet, this was not to be the case, as your Leader sought the riches of the Russians and declared war against our neighbor. With the help of the growing Aztec military, our advisors foresaw Russia falling into the hand of your great nation. Yet, your troops were slow in their affront, and had to cross our great land to reach the Russians. Finally, our Lord grew tired of your slow affront and joined you in your conquest. Our Lord sought to add the Pyramid to his collection, so he ordered an all out offensive. The Russians fought hard, but were highly outgunned, and before your forces could reach the Russian borders, they had surrendered to my Lord.”
“My Lord knew that the days of the Persians were limited, as they had joined the fight with the Russians against your great nation and the Aztecs. My Lord remembered the bygone days of when the Persians declared war against the French for no cause. Now was the time to avenge the deeds of the unmerciful Persians. A battle plan was drawn up to attack the Persians from all sides, and to destroy them in five moves. The plan was successful, and again, before your troops could reach the Persian borders, the Persians surrendered what they and now serve our King.”
“Finally, we believed peace was attained throughout the world. Our military was the greatest and far advanced from any other.
30 mech. Infantry
3 carriers loaded with bombers
Destroyers, battleships and submarines each escorting the carrier.
No other nation had even one of the these.”
“My friend, will you be voting for the great Babylonian King?”

Yeah, post another update. Too many stories have been long abandoned and doomed to eternal unpopularity, unless you post more. See the last page on the Stories and Tales part of this forum to see what I mean.

“Advisor, bring in my Sec of State and Sec of the Interior. I need a status of the war with America.”
“Mr. Sec of State, what is the latest from the front.”
“Your Majesty, we have taken Detroit, Washington D.C., New York, Los Angeles and last night we rolled into Miami, and now the entire beach front of America. The war is as good as won!”
“Not won? Is there a problem I need to be concerned about?”
“No, your majesty . . . it’s just that Las Vegas (a size 4 city), the sole remaining city, is situated on the outskirts of the Aztecs territory. It will take us five moves with our transports to reach the city and take it. Eight transports are mobilized as we speak, each filled with tanks. I cannot declare victory as of today.”
“I see you did not see this problem and take proactive measures when this war began, or otherwise the news would be different. Never the less, forget about Vegas. Let the Aztecs take it for all I care. Bring the tanks back and put them on the border between us and the Aztecs.”
“Mr. Sec of the Interior, what is the press saying about the war?”
“My Lord, the press is attacking you for giving away our prosperity to worthless welfare bums. The Americans are backwards! They need financial assistance to survive. The people appear to be in a welfare state and work slowly. Their technology is beyond reproach. Their land is mostly desert, undeveloped coast and tundra. The press asks why we want their land and all of their headaches.”
“Mr. Sec of the Interior, what is your response?”
“My Lord, this is a great opportunity for our people. We know have Broadway musicals, shopping, movies, beautiful beaches from Miami to Boston, skiing galore, automobile plants in Detroit. They only need to learn to work and our great society will benefit from the Americans.”
“Mr. Sec of the Interior, get these Americans to work. Build resorts in Miami from one end of the beach to the other.” (The conversation about the domestic life in America continued for the next several hours, but they were quite boring and therefore will not be discussed further here.)
“Mr. Sec of the Interior, our people demand gambling and the Sec of Defense was not able to procure Vegas. What is your suggestion to provide gambling? Do not haste, for I want a quick answer.”
“My Lord, we are fortunate that there are many Indians in the American lands. We saw their warriors and spearman in the fields as our tanks rolled by to take their cities. We will give them casino licenses and can have gambling in every city. Besides, the Americans did not develop the Atlantic coast. We have already started construction on a new city, we called it Atlantic City.”
“Your Majesty, the AP has just announced that the Aztecs have taken Las Vegas and completely destroyed the Americans. The war is over.”
“Mr. Sec of State, now that the war is over, get me an U.N. vote immediately. It is now time for the Iroquois to show their reverence towards me.”
“My Majesty, this cannot be done at this time, for the U.N. is not in session. We must be patient and wait for the next U.N. session.”
Date: July 4, 1776
"Mr. Sec of the Interior, Where is Mr. Lincoln? I understand this is an important date for him."
"My Lord, he is watching American Idol in is his room at Alcatraz. I will bring him in."
“Greatings, Mr. Lincoln. I hope things are well for you and you are being treated fairly.”
“Yes, Mr. Hammarubi. I am fine. The TV is small, and the food is spicier than my liking, but I am comfortable.”
“Mr. Lincoln, today is an important day in your country. Over the past 20 years, from 1745 to the present, the GNP of the Americans is way up, your population is growing and thriving, the gambling is bringing in a wave of new revenue and the teachers unions is richer than ever. How can they celebrate the 4th of July with such grandeur of fireworks while you sit watching American Idol?”
“Mr. Hammarubi, our people can celebrate because you have put them to work, and now they are enjoying the products of their labor. Our great society, as we called it, paid people to watch other people do other things. At first, we thought it would eliminate the little bit of poverty we had. But it got out of hand, and instead we enjoyed watching idols instead of working. Before long, we were fat, stupid and happy. That’s when my advisor convinced me to attack you. That was a bad, bad choice decision.”
“Mr. Lincoln, enjoy your view. We will talk more later.”
“My Lord, the U.N. is now in session. Do you want a vote?”
“You Idiot! Of course I do. Bring in the Sec of State.”
“Mr. Sec of State, have you talked recently with the Iroquois and how will they vote.”
“My Majesty, I am assured they will vote for you. This morning I presented them with 100 reasons why it was in their best interest to vote for you.”
“And those 100 reasons are . . . “
“My Majesty, 90 modern armor vehicles sit on their border, awaiting the results of the U.N. council. Five Navy fleets sit on their coast, each with a full arsenal of a carrier, a destroyer, a submarine, and a battleship. And there are five nuclear subs patrolling the waters, each capable of destroying them. The Iroquois kiss your feet.”
“Well done, then let the votes be counted.”
The Babylonians vote for King Hammarubi.
The Iroquois vote for King Hammarubi.
The Aztecs vote for . . .
YOU HAVE WON A U.N. VICTORY.
