    When evidence is shown, it will not be to you or yours. Communists are a threat to the safety of the world and have shown so with rampant aggression in South America and a history of violence in North America. Georgia sends fair warning to the Communist international. Should rebellions, terrorist plots and other operations to disrupt the good Christian world carry through, we will take action.

    Unfortunately nobody cares what your backwater, illegitimate, damned, dirty communist regime thinks.

    Mr Pétain appeared to care when he sent half of the French navy to the bottom of the Caribbean last year.

    The only deaths that occurred in Tennessee are those who fought against the rightful government or those who committed treasonous acts by supporting the illegal government which was rightfully put down. Tennessee is currently working on the documents that will provide our people with a government of choice. Our people will decide who governs Tennessee while your people have no hope of choice as they languish in the desert you call a government.

    "Sirs,

    It is unfortunate that the government of Georgia, and others around the World, continue to view socialism as a threat to them and keep referring to some kind of "aggression" that is coming from the socialist countries. We are unaware of any such aggression, and the fact remains that the Socialist Union is yet to be involved in a conflict that was not forced upon us.

    When German troops chose to cross the border into the Union and attack villages and farms we provided evidence of such before taking steps to counter the threat. We are sure that the Georgian government should do the same, if it is able, to remove all possible doubts about its motives. Given the past actions of Georgia, such doubts, I am sure you agree, are justified.

    For your information, the Honorable Leader has taken ill as recently as last year and any lapse of judgment thereof is not something to be commented on so lightly. He has shown us the Light; all you and your ilk have done is bring out the Dark.

    In the interest of regional stability and maintaining a united front against the aggressive spread of communism up the Mississippi River Valley, the Empire of Virginia asks for a treaty resulting in a defensive pact between our two nations and a resolve to work against the aggressive spread of communism. Does this sound agreeable?

    Again you use the falsity of German troops crossing the border and attacking you as a pretext to invade Deutsche Amazonien, which you have obviously been planning since your change of leadership in 1911. The first time we attacked you was in response to your invasion...where the Kaiserliche Marine task force nearby was re-routed to show you what we WOULD have done if we were to have started a war. We advise SUSA's propagandists to come up with a new, less absurd excuse to avoid the blame of your blatant acts of aggression against Germany and the good, capitalist forces on this Earth.

    "Sirs,

    In a dispute where two people claim the opposite things to be true there is very little that can be done to ascertain the truth if there are no facts. As a result, quite unlike the German leadership, whose only tools are lies and rhetoric, we allow the evidence to speak for itself. (Please see the relevant update, page 128)

    This? We can hardly call "evidence" to a set of documents that you could have clearly falsified in order to give yourself a casus belli to send the Germans out of their rightful territories in Amazonia. This smells to me like a false flag operation.

    There will be no more intervention of foreign powers within Louisiana's borders than there already is.

    RECESSION TAKES TURN FOR THE BETTER. Berlin, German Empire. To the limited relief of economists around the globe, the recession’s toll has lessened this year, with more nations recovering rather than falling. Though some economies seem to continue to weaken this year, the world economy has generally taken a turn for the better. Though some fear that the recession could merely be briefly improving, and a new downturn is on the horizon, leading economists believe that this is a sign of an improved spurt in a global boom.

    North American News Report

    NEW FRANCE ANNOUNCES REFORM. New Caen, Republic of New France. With a new regime and the apparent failure of socialism to build up the nation’s economy, New France has announced new programs to restructure the nation. Formerly nationalized railroad and power agencies have been sold off by the government to private commercial interests, in the hopes of revitalizing the nation’s wealth.

    IMMIGRANTS GOING TO TEXAS. Houston, Texan Republic. The wave of war which has swept the world over the past decade has sparked a variety of refugees from Europe and South America to seek new homes and shelter. Unlike in previous eras, communism, propaganda, and warfare have all limited the potential destinations for migrants. With much of Texas still open to settlement, this has become an ideal location for migrants from all parts of the globe. The population has begun to boom, particularly with new businesses and factories opening up with cheap immigrant labor. (+7 Manpower, +1 manpower per turn, +1 EP for Texas)

    IROQUOIS ELECTIONS. Mohawk, Iroquois Republic. In a trend that has been repeated in previous years in other countries, the Socialist Party in charge of the Iroquois Republic has been ousted by the Liberal Party. The liberals, while promising to keep the majority of social reforms put in place by the socialists, have promised to lift government reigns off of free industry. They have promised to follow a more limited style of reform along the lines of the Republic of New France, including gradual de-socialization. This has not been an entirely popular move, and some socialist newspapers have accused the Liberal Party of being bought off by foreign commercial interests, possibly Sweden or New England. (-1 Stability)

    UNREST IN LOUISIANA. Saint Louis, Empire of Louisiana. The Louisianan government illegalized the Ku Klux Klan as a political body this year, launching renewed violence by English speaking settlers in the north. The local Texan and Louisianan troops have more than managed to suppress the uprisings and all public leaders of the Klan have been rounded up and arrested. Politicians in Georgia and Tennessee have obviously denounced this move by Louisiana, claiming it to be contrary to the will and beliefs of the Louisianan people.

    REVOLT ESCALATES IN NEW YORK. Albany, New York Republic. The brutal quelling of the Manhattan Rebellion has served for a rallying cry for dissent in New York, sparking a full uprising against the New Englander government, and a declaration of succession by the Senators in the Republic’s congress. The separatists have proclaimed the New York Republic, pledging to restore the country’s predominant position in North America. They have achieved some well armed troops with the defection of a large number of New Yorker divisions, disgusted at the military’s treatment of New York City. The New York Yankees have rallied their weapons caches in support of the uprising and assembled the masses in the rally against New England. New York City continues to be the scene of warfare as the New England navy secures Long Island and most of the city itself. The northern part of the city has been taken by the separatists, who continue to hold the suburb.

    ANTI-KLAN ELEMENTS MAKE BID FOR POWER. Nashville, Tennessee. Plotters supporting the deposed King Edward have made a successful big for power this year. With Klannist supporters embroiled in fighting against the Miami, the monarchists used the failure of the attack to show the weakness of the Klan and moved against the republican government. Vicious fighting took place between the Klan’s militias and the monarchist military supporters, but the military ultimately prevailed in the major urban centers of the nation. Though the king has not yet returned from his new home in Virginia, the new military government has once more offered him the throne of Tennessee. Meanwhile, the Ku Klux Klan has retreated to the countryside and large numbers of the army have deserted to join what may soon become another vicious guerilla war. (-32 Infantry Brigades, -2 Stability)

    RIOTS IN MEXICO. Mexico City, Union of Mexico. Lines at community organizations and government businesses turned into a series of brutal riots throughout the Union of Mexico this year. The people, fed up with waiting, rose up in desperate riot, looting factories, farms, and stores for food and other possessions. This has been marked by an increased rise in banditry across the northern part of the country, as looters and robbers strike at trains coming from the Commune of the Lakota People. The rising violence has of course led to damage to the economy, as factories and other businesses go under as employees go to less conventional methods of garnering wealth. (-1 EP, -1 manpower)

    KLANNIST REVOLT IN KENTUCKY. Danville, Virginian Empire. Sensing opportunity, Klannist elements in Kentucky have risen up against the Virginian government. Some of this may have been sparked by the arrival of Klannist soldier refugees from Tennessee, providing their arms and training to the rebels. Soldiers apportioned for the front against the Miami were forced back behind the lines to crush the rebellion. The brutal fighting led to a surrender of the city when the ringleaders of the Virginian Ku Klux Klan were captured. The nation now awaits the trial and probable execution of these men for their treason against the government. (-1 Infantry Brigade, -6 Manpower)

    KLAN CHIEF PUBLISHES NEW BOOK. Atlanta, Georgia. Anthony Dressler, popularly known for his leadership and creation of the first Klan in Virginia in 1906, published a book this year in Georgia illustrating his new views of the Klan and the growth of the movement. The American Struggle emphasizes the need for unity of the white people of America under a single government. He offers a new history of the United States of America, pointing at the aristocracy and Virginian businessmen being the cause of the collapse of the Union. He also addressed the Negro and how through communism he threatens to destroy the purity of the white race and women. The book has done extraordinarily well throughout Georgia and much of North America, though increasingly less so the more north one looks.

    OHIO VALLEY PROJECT COMPLETED. Cincinnati, Virginian Empire. Even as the echoes of war are heard not far away, efforts by the Virginian government have come to fruition. A series of hydroelectric dams built with government funds have provided power to the region at extraordinary low costs to the people. The new jobs provided to the region have sparked an upsurge in the region’s local economy, helping greatly in Virginia’s recovery from the ongoing recession. (+1 EP)

    VIRGINIA MAKES STUNNING ANNOUNCMENTS. Richmond, Virginian Empire. Two pronouncements were made which have shocked the core voters of Virginia to the bone, and have been applauded by neighboring nations. Based partially off of New England naval and army programs to introduce colonial racial troops into the military, the Virginian government has announced plans for the establishment of ten planned Negro Brigades as the war against Miami continues to go slowly. They have called for Negro volunteers to serve in the military, and many have answered the call, some even being turned away. This news was combined with the publication of new laws guaranteeing freedom of the Virginian press. (+10 Manpower)

    MIAMI REBELLION ESCALATES. Miami, Miami People’s Republic. The Miami Rebellion continues in full swing as the rebels manage to hold back the Virginian onslaught in the field. Given nearly half a year to prepare defensive works against attack, the Miamians managed to hold back at a third defensive position against a combined Canadian and Virginian assault in the east. A Virginian attempt to cross the Ohio River met with failure as most resources had to be redirected east to crush the revolt in Danville. Further west, a Tennessean attempt to advance up the Mississippi River against the Miami met with even worse failure, leaving several thousand dead with no gain.
    Casualty List
    Miami: 21 Infantry Brigades, 5 Artillery Brigades
    Canada: 6 Infantry Brigades
    Tennessee: 3 Infantry Brigades
    Virginia: 15 Infantry Brigades, 2 Artillery Brigades, 2 Tank Brigades

    GEORGIAN SOLDIERS DETAINED. Ponte Verda, Florida. Georgian military forces were turned over by Seminoles loyal to the Floridian government during attempts to enter the Floridian countryside to incite Seminole rebel factions against Florida and Cuba. The Floridian government was successfully able to detain and disarm most of the Georgian soldiers, who were promptly turned over by most of the Seminole factions or executed outright in the case of the black Seminoles. Cuba and Florida have both denounced the Georgian move, claiming it to be a sign of imminent future Georgian aggression. Florida immediately followed this incident by signing on with last year’s Detroit Accords and has recommended that Cuba follow suit. (-1 Infantry Brigade for Georgia)

    GEORGIA IMPLICATED IN TEXAS PLOT. Houston, Texan Republic. The Texan government has announced that they have captured several Georgian assassins planning to kill the Texan president. The Georgians were caught attempting to portray themselves as negro communists, wearing black face makeup and talking in exaggerated Negro accents. They were soon arrested well before any of their plans could be put into motion. This has summarily further strained relations between the Gulf Alliance and Georgia.

    CRISIS IN METIS TERRITORY. Winnipeg, occupied Metis Syndicate. The government of Francis Coultier has been officially brought to an end as socialist movements throughout the country rise against him and his German puppet masters. A full revolution arrested Coultier in Winnipeg only to face the brutal response of the German army. The German military has seized control of most of the major roads and railroads in the new Metis Syndicate, propping up Coultier as a dictator without a real nation. The Germans have occupied the major urban centers of the country. The Metis military has fled into the countryside with the guerillas, hoping to wage war against the German foe.

    CANADA ANNOUNCES NEW DEAL. Toronto, Canada. The Canadian president has announced a “New Deal for the Canadian people” this year with a series of new recovery programs. These programs have been detailed to include a national bank, and programs to expand upon the Civilian Conservation Corps, hoping to restore the national economy, already on an upturn. The cost for the project is listed to be very expensive, which has some conservatives balking at the potential cost, believing that the free market is already recovering, meaning new programs may well be a waste of meager government funds.

    NEW ENGLAND UNVIELS NEW BATTLESHIP. Boston, Republic of New England. As in previous years, the New Englander government has launched a new ship in a new class of vessels. The Imperial-class Battleship far outguns all previous classes and can easily outmatch the Moroccan Atlantic-class both in range and durability. This new vessel dwarfs others in size and is considered to be the ultimate power on the high seas.

    Central/South American News Report

    CUBAN NAVY DEMONSTRATES NEW VIGOR. Havana, Cuba. A new crop of officers and cadets in Cuba have proven unusually proficient in the navy, showing improved skills over previous generations. No one can seriously attribute any specific cause to the improvement in naval quality. It merely seems as though this would be an improved age for the naval forces of Cuba. (+1 Naval Quality)

    MORE VIOLENCE IN HAITI. Santo Domingo, Empire of Haiti. Santo Domingo, a longtime hotbed of resistance against the imperial regime, rose up in full rebellion this year, sparking a brutal response from the government. Heavy fighting erupted from block to block as the government attempted to restore order to the city. Ultimately heavy artillery barrages and support from the navy helped to quell the rebellion. The city remains under heavy martial law as the remaining civilians attempt to rebuild. (-6 manpower, -5 Infantry Brigades)

    BELIZE ELECTIONS. Belize City, Belize. The nation of Belize, arguably the most stable regime in Central America, once more proved it’s worth with cordial elections this year. Conservatives and Liberals faced off on issued of state, with the liberals favoring improved relations with Mexico and Guatemala while the conservatives have argued for renewed ties with the Gulf Alliance or United Nation States of America. The Conservative Party clearly won the elections, promising to stay the course with the continuation of the last four years’ previous policies. (+4 Stability)

    VIOLENCE MARRS HONDURAS ELECTIONS. Tegucigalpa, Honduras. A military coup was attempted against the government this year as the elections approached. Fortunately for the country, the coup attempt was halted rather early with the arrest and execution of the ringleader. The elections proceeded as planned and with new fervor. Heated disputes over politics led to many a brawl within the capital and other cities and villages as a multitude of factions fought for power. The end result was the establishment of a coalition Moderate Party who came quickly to the forefront of elections. This organization has pledged to keep the country secure and isolated from the affairs of other powers in the Caribbean. With the crushing of the coup and the establishment of a stable political force, it seems things have finally cooled down in Honduras. (+9 Stability)

    COUP BRINGS CHANGE IN CUBA. Havana, Cuba. The downturn caused by the recession in Cuba has brought about a dramatic turn of events in this island nation. A military plot has brought down the democratic government as the military moved into Havana. The Moderate government has been executed or deported as traitors to the state and a new regime has been established under Acturo Pierre. The new dictator has yet to express his views on national or international events, leaving many to wonder of his new motives. (+1 Stability)

    WAR IN SOUTH AMERICA. Sucre, occupied Bolivia. Unlike last year, which saw the heaviest combat on the seas, this year was marked by major land offensives by the allied communist forces. In the north, the Socialist Union of South America launched a major offensive through Dutch Guyana, smashing their way slowly north. Dutch and German forces in the colony were overwhelmed and forced to surrender after the Socialist army reached Georgetown and the Mexican fleet blockaded the town. The Socialists managed to capture several small Dutch and German light ships in the harbor, some still undergoing slow repair from the Battle of Trinidad. Further south, the war in Bolivia took an unusual change in events as the Bolivians won several small victories against the forces of Mexico and La Plata, only to be surprised first by an socialist attack from the north. Almost one million socialist soldiers poured into Bolivia from the north, sweeping aside minor resistance and cutting off German and Bolivian escape attempts to Peru. The remaining Bolivians were then surprised by Paraguay’s invasion from the southeast, seizing control of a large tract of land before communist forces from north or south could take it. They have not initiated any real combat against the communists, but both sides have eyed each other uneasily as Paraguay rests along amidst the Socialist International Cooperative Group. Celebrations have been held across the whole of the Socialist Union as the government has proclaimed victory over the German Empire, with the capture of Georgetown and the fall of Bolivia.
    Casualty List
    Bolivia: 104 Infantry II Brigades, 33 Artillery Brigades (destroyed)
    German Empire: 28 Infantry Brigades, 2 Destroyers, 2 Light Cruisers
    Netherlands: 6 Infantry Brigades, 1 Artillery Brigade, 2 Destroyers
    SUSA: 106 Infantry Brigades, 4 Artillery Brigades, 1 Tank Brigade, +4 Destroyers, +2 Light Cruisers
    Mexico: 14 Infantry Brigades, 4 Artillery Brigades
    Lakota Sioux: 4 Infantry Brigades, 2 Artillery Brigades
    La Plata: 11 Infantry Brigades, 1 Artillery Brigade
    Paraguay: 6 Infantry Brigades

    European News Report

    BULGARIA ELECTIONS. Sofia, Bulgaria. The Bulgarian nation has had its second elections for the Duma, still heavily limited by the Bulgarian tsar. The current government remains firmly under the control of the Conservative Party, which heartily backs the controls of the monarch. Opposition parties continue to remain limited in number and woeful in organization, with no clear leader emerging. (+1 Stability)

    DANISH ELECTIONS AMID DEATH OF A MONARCH. Copenhagen, Danish Empire. The Dansk Konservative Folkeparti was trounced in this year’s elections by a massive majority achieved by the Dansk Fremskridtspartiet, a liberal party which has denounced the country’s alliance with “warmongering Germany.” Promising also social reform and an end to the recession, these Danish liberals have vowed to create a nation vastly different to the one they arrived to power in. Another reason for the probable cause of victory was the death of aging King Frederick VIII. This reactionary ruler was believed to have been the heart of the conservative movement in Denmark and his death greatly weakened their political strength. His son, a St. Petersburg educated liberal, has been crowned the new King Christian X. He has offered his full support to the Dansk Fremskridtspartiet and any political actions they may choose to take, domestically or abroad. (+2 Stability)

    PORTUGAL ELECTIONS. Lisbon, Portugal. The Portuguese government had new elections this year for the Parliament, resulting in not much of a change in policy. The Portuguese people very clearly have approved of the leadership of the Moderate Party, bringing them once again back into control of the legislative branch of the government. They have pledged to continue previous policies and to help strengthen the nation in the world’s weakened economy. (+2 Stability)

    SERBIA ELECTIONS. Belgrade, Serbia. As in Bulgaria, the nation of Serbia has held its second ever elections this year without Russian supervision. The Moderate Party has managed to hold together the coalition government of liberals and conservatives, preventing the separation of the parties once again. Though the nation has seen a decline in stability in recent years, the government has pledged to keep a strong place for Serbia in the Russian Imperial Protectorate.

    THE BUDAPEST NEGOTIATIONS. Budapest, Hungary. In a move surprising many of his European Alliance friends and former political allies at home, King Charles V called for a party negotiation by various factions within Hungary. The factions which plague this nation state responded enthusiastically, though reports exist which claim that most are still stockpiling arms in the case of civil war. One of the largest political factions is clearly the rising republican movement. They have in the past called for the abdication of the king, but are willing also to live with a constitutional monarchy should the King present the people with a constitution similar to that of the Russian Imperial Federation. The socialists have split themselves from this movement, still calling for the abdication of the king and the establishment of a socialist republic. Opposing both of these factions are reactionary elements of the military and nobility, who refuse to recognize the leaders and were brought to the table only by the insistence of the king. They have refused to compromise, claiming that republics are against the divine right of the king (and themselves) to rule the land. A surprising new, small, but vocal factions also made itself known, calling itself the Hungarian Lisist Party. This movement has had members who fought in the French Civil War and have called to establish a government similar to that of France, regulating the monarch to a figurehead role, but retaining some absolutist ideals. They have managed to sway some of the reactionaries to their side, but still are clearly the smallest in number. (+1 Stability)

    FIGHTING IN IRELAND. Cork, Cork Emergency District. Brutal fighting continued in Ireland this year as English forces sent in a new force of soldiers to assist in the ongoing battles. Thanks to the influx of new soldiers and tank tactics used against Irish trenches, the forces of England and Ulster managed to break the enemy lines. The remaining forces of the Irish army have rallied around Cork in an attempt to halt the enemy advance. They have promised to “bleed the English to death in the towns of southern Ireland.”
    Casualty List
    England: 19 Infantry Brigades, 4 Artillery Brigades
    Ulster: 32 Infantry Brigades
    Cork: 42 Infantry Brigades, 11 Artillery Brigades

    FRANCE DECLARES TOTAL OCCUPATION. Brussels, France. The government of France has announced that it will begin direct occupational control over the former nation of Belgium. Though they have not stated plans for annexation, many outside observers believe that there may soon be a new French province in the north. The Belgians have begun a brutal underground war with remnants of socialist organizations in France, launching attacks against French military outposts throughout northern France and Belgium. They have won several small victories against the French, razing outposts and border forts. (-1 Infantry Brigade for France)

    African/Middle Eastern News Report

    ELECTORAL TURMOIL IN LIBERIA. Fortsythville, Liberia. This year’s elections have been brutally fought in the African state of Liberia. The electoral process was marred by incessant riots, protests, and other demonstrations of civil disorder. The rising publication of atrocities committed by the Ku Klux Klan in Tennessee and the new alliance between that government and Georgia have led leaders of Liberia to find a difficult path ahead of them. Anti-Georgian elements have encouraged a trade embargo on Georgia in response to their de facto support of the atrocities of the Tennessee government, but more conservative elements have argued that could only lead to economic collapse. A military takeover was attempted to restore order to the country, but elements of the military remained loyal, arresting the leaders of the proposed coup before it could be launched. The commercial outlook towards Georgia won out in the end, calling for some diplomatic reprimands and the opening of doors to refugees from the potential fury of the Klan. (-1 Stability)

    FIRST OTTOMAN ELECTIONS. Ankara, Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire’s first free elections this year were dominated by a plethora of various political parties. Islamist rightists, Kurdish national groups, socialist liberals, monarchist conservatives, and the reigning moderates all competed for influence among the people. The Pasha backed Council of Union and Progress clearly won the day in the end, though without a true majority. Popular support attained by ending the war against the European powers helped achieve some major standing in addition for the resumption of stability, a luxury nearly forgotten by the people of the empire. The lacking of a majority however means that the CUP is like to have to compromise to ally with one of the various other factions in order to pass the reforms they desire.

    RIOTS IN MOROCCO. Rabat, Morocco. A crowded market place soon became the scene of extreme violence this year in Morocco. For reasons unknown, a major riot broke out in Rabat, causing the local law enforcement to be overwhelmed and the Sultan even withdrawn from the city for his own safety. The riots lasted over a week and the military was called in to restore order. Many people are believed to have been killed or injured in the unrest, and the sultan himself has donated a large sum of funds to help with repair efforts. (-3 Manpower)

    FIGHTING IN PERSIA/AFGHANISTAN. Kabul, Afghanistan. The Persian government launched a full invasion of the nation of Afghanistan this year following Afghani refusal to pay reparations for their invasion of Persia during the Suez War. This led to a temporary alliance being launched among the various factions and warlords to combine the army once more. The combined Afghani army managed to win a victory using superior numbers and knowledge of the terrain. The Persians were routed and once more pushed out of Afghanistan.
    Casualty List
    Afghanistan: 8 Infantry Brigades
    Persia: 9 Infantry Brigades

    ISLAMIST DISSENT IN SINKIANG. Urumqi, Sinkiang. The perceived success of united Islam in the face of adversity during the Suez War has had lasting ramifications as far east as China. In the state of Sinkiang, the Islamic population has staged several riots against the Chinese military government. In response, the reigning warlord has cracked down harshly on the Muslims with his army, arresting clerics and shutting down mosques. Several bloody incidents have been reported when the Muslims attempted to resist the military, resulting in brutal massacres. Newspapers in the Islamic world have denounced these incidents, declaring these to be further casualties of the “anarchist Chinese Civil War.”

    WAR IN CHINA. Peking, Union of Chinese Collectives. The war in China shifted from the southern theaters this year dramatically to the ongoing war in the north. Russia has entered the war with a vengeance following the communist rebellions in their occupied region. Chinese guerillas and agents managed to score a victory in the east, with the destruction at several points of the three main west-east railroads. Among these attacks was the derailing of a train with a large number of Russian tanks on board. The Russians, beleaguered after their journey met with further disaster in the field against the Chinese, who, using superior artillery fire managed to win defensive victories against the Russian army. Using information at their disposal about the Balkan War, the Chinese also plotted a strong defense against the Russian tanks, using their artillery fire and new “tank traps” to trap and destroy the weapons. The Russians suffered heavy casualties, losing an exorbitantly large number of these vehicles to the Chinese. In the south, limited fighting continued, with a disastrous attack by Guangxi against the republic, leading to a successful counter offensive to the coast. Only limited fighting occurred on the long border between communists and republicans, as both sides continues major propaganda campaigns against each other.
    Casualty List
    Russia: 63 Infantry Brigade, 28 Artillery Brigades, 21 Tank Brigades
    Communist China: 60 Infantry Brigades, 5 Artillery Brigades, 2 Tank Brigades
    Republican China: 27 Infantry Brigades, 1 Artillery Brigade
    Guangxi: 43 Infantry Brigades, 5 Artillery Brigades

    KOREA JOINS CO-AXIAL PACT. Seoul, Korean Empire. The Korean government announced late in the year that it has joined the Co-Axial Pact, being the first Asian government to enter into a true alliance with a European power. The Koreans have joined the French, Italians, Georgians, and Portuguese as members of this exclusive new alliance. Politicians within various other colonial regimes based in the Pacific have remained concerned about this development.

    Good update. I still have some questions about my stats as there is a few units I have not gotten for a couple of turns so go ahead and put them if you know what I mean but otherwise I'll send you over a pm about it. Are we still going to see to the cultural video for the 1910s?

    So does anyone know what the French word for Anschluss is? :mischief:

    @bombshoo: ok, yeah i know what you're talking about and my word on it is: DAMMIT!

    The Olympics are coming early this year because I have a very interesting schedule over this weekend and next week. We will get out maybe one update before next Saturday which is my wedding. The deadline is Tuesday, can't give an exact time, as the update will take place over the following few days. After that point, the next update will be aimed for June 8.

    Olympics 1920: Houston

    Well the Olympic Committee has narrowed choices for the 1928 Olympics to three profound choices:
    Ottawa, Canada
    Mobile, Florida
    New Lyons, Republic of New France

    Specially ordering preparations for certain sections of the Olympics can help smaller countries get more medals. I’d heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to build national pride through these events every four years.

    We are also pleased to announce the field of automobile racing to this year’s Olympics, thanks to the sponsorship of several generous corporate givers from Russia, Virginia, and Germany.

    An Important Post from the Moderator of this NES

    This next update is the 1920 update, showing 20 updates so far for A Brave New World 2. With this update will come a few changes on the front page that do not ordinarily happen. They are as follows:

    1. Nation list will be reorganized by continent and put into spoilers for ease of use.
    2. Tech tree will also be reorganized in a new way, hopefully easier to use.
    3. In somewhat related news to the above, all specializations shall be reconsidered based on choices in research for this turn. As a note, this is ONLY for what you have spent EP in, not what you have recieved in trades.
