    RECESSION REPORT. Berlin, German Empire. It is clear to economists that the recession is clearing up and the global economic situation is overall recovering. As previously socialist nations such as New France and Venezuela and other newer powers open themselves up to capitalistic exploitation, various economies have begun to show signs of improvement, while the previous socialist suppliers of some these countries wane in economic influence over these countries. The calming of the world stage over the past few years has also played a part with the end of the Suez War and other large conflicts. Though some fighting continues to take place in places like South America in China, the world as a whole seems to be headed to a new era of peace and prosperity. Below as before is a report on the economic changes which occurred this year from the recession and various other factors.

    1920 OLYMPICS. Houston, Texan Republic. It was clear this year that once again the main contenders were the German Empire and the Russian Imperial Federation. Combined these nations received nearly twenty percent of all gold medals distributed at the Olympics. The new automotive part of the events proved to be unusually popular, prompting many more people to recognize the benefits of this new vessel of transportation. Various companies have given the “Olympic mark” on their vehicles in order to attract discerning buyers worldwide. After heated debate and review of the world’s situation, the city of Ottawa in Canada has been selected as the location for the 1928 Olympics. Once again, this city has been selected for the nation’s stability and security in the wake of other rebellions. The city has been asked to begin their preparations to set up the facilities needed for that year’s events.

    North American News Report

    THE MUSIC OF THE REFUGEE. New Orleans, Empire of Louisiana. A new sound has emerged from the new slums of New Orleans that has shaken the musical world of North America. Black performers, experienced in slave plantation entertainment have worked together to create new brass “jazz bands” which have proved profitable in the various red light districts along the Mississippi River. This music has finally found its way to the white communities of Louisiana, and has gained some acceptance as a music form. Outside of Louisiana, various types of jazz have been reported in Chicago, Texas, and Virginia.

    TENNESSEE ANNOUNCES CONSTITUION. Nashville, Tennessee. This year the government of Tennessee, has established a strong new constitution. The military government has approved the new established position, as it provides for an extremely strong executive branch under the President. Elections are due to be held every five years both for the legislative branch and the Presidency. For now, minor elections have been held and military and monarchist sympathizers have managed to establish easy control over the House of Owners. The House of the People has also been thoroughly controlled by the conservative party, which the former king supported. The king has remained active in politics, and will be the reigning President until the newest elections in 1925. (+3 Stability)

    CANADA ELECTIONS. Toronto, Canada. The Conservative Party has once more dominated Canadian politics this year, smashing all opposition in the elections. As the nation’s economy recovers from the Great Recession, the Conservative Party has claimed victory over adversity and stated that the cause was due to its increased spending and social programs. Though economists debate these assertions, claiming that the economic recovery was due to other elements such as the expansion of the EACU, naturally the conservatives aren’t listening. (+1 Stability)

    LOUISIANA ELECTIONS. New Orleans, Empire of Louisiana. This year’s elections for the position of Consul of the Louisianan Empire came as a surprise change against the old ways. The Liberal Party has once more secured control of the government and has passed even further reform. Stating that authoritarian regimes are the ways of the of the nineteenth century, the Liberal Party has announced that elections will not longer be held only once every ten years. Instead, new elections will be held on a more American measurement of every four years starting in 1924. (+2 Stability)

    PENNSYLVANIA ELECTIONS. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After over a decade and a half of Socialist control, the Socialist Party has been removed from political control in Pennsylvania. The nation’s new President is firmly a member of the Conservative Party, promising a new era for the nation’s people. Though the President is a Conservative, he has managed to make it into power as a member of a collaborative Moderate Party which has patched together liberals and conservatives in alliance against the Socialist Party. There is some belief that the new government may launch policies of de-socialization much like what has recently occurred in the Republic of New France. (-1 Stability)

    VIRGINIA ELECTIONS. Richmond, Virginian Empire. This year’s elections in Virginia have been marked by the banning of the Ku Klux Klan from participating in the proceedings. The demonstrations in Danville and near open revolt throughout Kentucky sparked by the Klan has angered the government enough and alienated most supporters of the Klan in the rest of the country. The Liberal Party has continued its control over the government, promising ever further reform and trumpeting its recent successes in limiting the power of the monarchy. Some fear however, that they may soon lose the base of their support as the fighting against the Miami continues to go poorly. (-1 Stability)

    NEW YORKER REBELLION. New York City, Republic of New England. The rebellion in New York was brought to an abrupt end with a surprise assault on the rebel stronghold of Buffalo. Canadian troops, escorted by the New Englander Lakes Squadron landed in the city, seizing the bastion with minimal casualties. The capture of Buffalo meant the securing of the main center of supply for the rebels, allowing Canadian forces to surprise and force the surrender of a large New Yorker force. The defeat at Buffalo was followed by an offered blanket amnesty to all rebels by the New Englander government. Regardless of status in the rebellion, the New England government apologized for the “avoidable disaster in New York,” and has even arrested several military officers claimed to be responsible. These actions, while not enough to bring full New Yorker forces back to the fold, has led to the collapse of the rebellion with virtually no casualties. The senators who led New York have claimed that they were coerced by the New York Yankees in their “campaign of hate” against the New England government.

    MIAMI REBELLION. Miami, Miami People’s Republic. The Miami native forces continued their struggle against the Virginians this year, using constructed fortifications and deep concrete establishments. A well structured series of fortified lines bled Canadian and Virginian forces badly as they advanced west. Casualties continued to grow as the year continued, as the Miami army inflicted heavy devastation against the Virginian tank corps, using similar tactics as seen elsewhere in the world. The Miami have so far managed to keep their independence, as they inflict almost equal casualties against their perceived oppressors.
    Casualty List
    Miami: 16 Infantry Brigades
    Virginia: 9 Infantry Brigades, 2 Tank Brigades
    Canada: 6 Infantry Brigades

    PROTESTS TURN VIOLENT. Charleston, Virginian Empire. A series of anti-war and anti-negro protests were held across the Virginian Empire this year following the continuing setbacks as the Miami Rebellion drags on. The harshest of the protests originated against the announcement of the use of Negro soldiers on the front. These protests became racial riots, as rioters attacked the Negro centers of the victim towns. Local law enforcement agencies were fortunately able to contain the unrest, and the ringleaders in most cases have been linked to disgruntled members of the Ku Klux Klan. The other riots resulted from pure anti-war protests, calling for an immediate end to the prolonged conflict, as no end seems in sight.

    METIS HOLD ELECTIONS. Winnipeg, Metis Republic. After compromise with the occupying Germans within the Metis Republic, the Socialists have agreed to hold free elections under German supervision. Despite some fears of German interference in the process, the elections went off rather successfully, and the socialists soon won a electoral victory over the other competing parties. The new regime has insisted on immediate withdrawal of German troops from the country, as they still retain possession of some territory and bases within the Metis Republic.

    EXPANSION OF EACU. Boston, Republic of New England. The East Atlantic Customs Union, a controversial economic body which some claim sparked the Great Recession has marked the entry of two new members. This body of tariffs and inter connected trade has brought the Texan Republic and Empire of Louisiana into the larger group. The Texan Republic has lost some minor business due to the mandatory raising of tariffs, but the Union has a major revival.

    FLORIDA ANNOUNCES PLEBISCITE PLANS. Saint Augustine, Florida. Under pressure and with an intensifying press campaign in Louisiana and Texas, the Floridian government has announced intentions to hold a plebiscite for Seminole independence in 1922. They have announced that the elections will be to determine whether or not the Seminole tribe will be given back their territory. Working with the Cuban government, either the choice will be to return to Floridian rule completely or to be offered a new nation and republic.

    LOUISIANA CONTINUES POLITICAL PURGE. New Orleans, Empire of Louisiana. The Louisianan government has continued arresting and jailing former members of the Ku Klux Klan, effectively driving them out as a political organization within the country. The book, An American Struggle has been banned and ownership marks a person as a objective of arrest. The government has promised to keep the country secure from the hatred that the Klan preaches and to maintain traditional Louisianan values in government.

    Central/South American News Report

    HAITI REPORTS ECONOMIC BOOM. Port-au-Prince, Empire of Haiti. The Haitian government has reported that even while some countries still linger in the Great Recession, the Haitian economy has begun to soar. Massive increases in shipping and business have been reported, perhaps due to new construction projects throughout the various devastated regions of the country from civil unrest. The growth of stability from the recent constitutional reform can also be attributed as a factor in the country’s economic growth. To many Haiti is becoming the principal Caribbean economic and military power.

    CHILE ELECTIONS. Santiago, Chile. The predominant topic in this year’s elections in Chile was the Moderate Party’s agreement to join the Socialist International Cooperative Group. This led to a quick split in the party as the wealthy and middle class rallied around the reforged Conservative Party, who has played off German victories in La Plata to organize a front against socialism. However, they failed to secure the majority they needed, despite heartedly dividing Chilean politics. The nation’s Socialist Party won out in the end, due to major lower class voter turn out. The new government has reaffirmed ties with the La Plata Republic and Socialist Union of South America. Still, conservatives claim that the socialists worked to rig the elections in their favor, attempting to bring Chile into the Red blight of communism. (-2 Stability)

    EL SALVADOR ELECTIONS. San Salvador, El Salvador. This year’s elections have further cemented the position of reigning President Juarez, who has once against reasserted his vow to rebuild the United Provinces of Central America. Juarez has consolidated his control over the country, securing his position, and establishing almost dictatorial control over El Salvador. The recent years’ militarization of the country have shown that the people of El Salvador are more than ready for a conflict to show their nation’s power in Central America. (+2 Stability)

    ADVANCE PANICS LA PLATA. Urquizaville, La Plata Republic. The victories of the German Empire have proven to be disastrous to the morale of the La Platan people, bringing the city of Urquizaville into a panicked riot. The city burned as law and order vanished with the defeats in the field. The war has led to these brutal riots and unrest, leaving many homes and businesses in flames as the population flees or joins in the looting.

    COUP ATTEMPT IN PARAGUAY. Asunción, Paraguay. As the German military reenters the South American continent, the military of Paraguay determined to seize power to join in the crusade against socialism. The Paraguayan loyalists smashed the rebels in several brutal battles throughout the countryside, preventing an advance on the capital. After it became clear to the mutineers that they were no longer making progress, they soon offered up their captains to the government, who has arrested the rebels. Casualties were clearly heavy in the fighting, leaving parts of the areas surrounding Asuncion devastated. (-6 Infantry Brigades)

    COLOMBIA ESTABLISHES NEW LAW. Bogotá, Colombia. The Colombian military government has passed some startling new reform laws for the nation’s people. The dictator has set a minimum limit for wages within the country’s borders. No Colombian working citizen can be paid less than four pesos wages for every hour of work. This new law has been passed simultaneously with new efforts to attract new corporate interests from further north to invest in Colombian resources. At the moment, some interests are still watching to see the results of the reform, as few know what possible other routes the government may take in reform.

    CHILE JOINS SOCIALIST GROUP. Rio de Janeiro, Socialist Union of South America. The government of Chile has made a controversial diplomatic decision this year. Along with the other members of the International Socialist Cooperative Group, the Socialist Union of South America has welcomed Chile to the organization, despite a lack originally of a socialist government. The division of the Chilean government seems to be heightening as the elections dicussed above clearly demonstrate.

    HAITI ANNOUNCES GOVERNMENT REFORM. Port-au-Prince, Empire of Haiti. The government of Haiti, after several years of internal turmoil, has finally caved to liberal demands and have restructured the government. Emperor Faustin III has renounced a large number of his previous powers, enacting positions for a new legislative branch of the government known as the Assembly. With this group will be the majority backed position of Prime Minister to act as the main proponent of the cause of the Assembly. This year’s elections were heated and opened to any male citizen of age within the empire, and though elements of society expressed nationalist, conservative, or even socialist views, the government has fallen to a Liberal Party majority as they managed to rally the largest bastion of support, Hispaniola. (+3 Stability)

    SOUTH AMERICA WAR. Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires Protectorate. The war in South America has taken a dramatic new turn. As socialist fleets watch the north for the possibility of German invasion of the Socialist Union of South America, the Germans instead struck deep into the La Plata Republic from the territory of Buenos Aires. The German campaign focused on seizing control of the lifeblood of the La Platan economy and transport system, the Rio Parana. The operation was a major success, smashing the army of La Plata in a few quick battles. Some SUSA forces were soon deployed south, but met the German armies in the field and were routed in the face of the resistance. At sea, the German fleet was able to achieve local superiority first by surprising and destroying the sub pens at Montevideo and several other ports further north, eliminating the SUSA submarine threat with no losses of their own. Eventually the Mexican Caribbean task force was brought south, only to withdraw after realizing they were facing nearly three times their number in capital ships. For now, the war seems to be in the German favor.
    Casualty List
    German Empire: 26 Infantry Brigades, 1 Destroyer
    La Plata: 31 Infantry Brigades, 6 Cavalry Brigades
    SUSA: 18 Infantry Brigades, 20 Submarines

    European News Report

    HOODED JUSTICE. Hamburg, German Empire. Several reports were made this year in the poorer districts of the city of Hamburg of a masked figure assaulting would-be criminals, including rapists and well known pimps and thieves. Several notorious underworld figures have been found dead, and witnesses have described the assailant as a man wearing a hood, cape, and strangely, a partial noose around his neck. The Hamburg Press has called this man a vision of “hooded justice” and this term has been given to this vigilante as a title, as he continues his work throughout the city. Hooded Justice has captured the imagination of the German people and others in Europe, a heroic figure fighting crime on his own.

    NEW LEADER IN FRANCE. Paris, France. An unknown assassin murdered the leader of the French nation this year, Philippe Petain. Combined with imperial Consul elections this year, this has marked a new regime change not only within France, but within the French Lisist Party. The new leader of the party has promised change and reform within the government, and the continuation of the expansion of the Lisist Party and French power in Europe.

    GREECE ELECTIONS. Athens, Greece. The government of Greece has seen a dramatic change in management this year, as the long reigning Liberal Party has been at last removed from office. Failure to end the recession has weighed heavily on the people’s decision, and the Conservative Party has been returned to office. The new Greek government has vowed to take a more internationalist approach to the world, blaming socialists for the recession and promising a modernization of the military in preparation for the containment and defeat of the Red threat. (+1 Stability)

    RUSSIA ELECTIONS. St. Petersburg, Russian Imperial Federation. The Federative Party, playing off recent economic recovery and growth has once more dominated Russian elections. The government has continued its control over the Russian Empire. The Party has pledged to maintain isolationism in regards to most foreign affairs. This year’s defeats at the hands of the communist Chinese have rallied some members of the party against continuing the war, though no clear anti-war bloc has emerged within the Duma. The rise of anti-war press and several protests have made it clear that the Russian people will not let the conflict continue much longer. (-1 Stability)

    PRICE RIOTS IN BOHEMIA. Prague, Bohemia. The high prices of food and other goods in overcrowded Bohemia have sparked a series of ugly riots in Prague. No ideological protests were raised, just people overwhelmed with the poverty caused by the ongoing recession. The riots eventually wore themselves out as the government maintained the military and police around government buildings and wealthy districts of the city. This has met with some resentment, though the country has once more weathered its way through a crisis.

    ANTI-WAR PROTESTS IN ENGLAND. London, England. Even as the final Irish forces surrender in Cork, the English people have staged a massive anti-war rally against the government, decrying once again the dissolution of Parliament and the absolute reign of the king. They have called for immediate democratic elections not just in Ireland but in England as well. Though no instant action was taken against the protestors, a large number were later arrested, particularly the more vocal activists. They are currently detained in prison awaiting trial for treasonous behavior against the Crown.

    HUNGARY CAMPAIGNING. Budapest, Hungary. This year was opened up with a large amount of political campaigning and development within Hungary. The monarchists have managed to retain a significant holding, although many continue to lose out support to the growing Hungarian Lisist Party, which has rallied an increasing amount of conservative backing. The Lisists have hobbled together a surprising collection of conservatives and poor, promising social reform as well as a new era of Hungarian power and dominance.

    CORK FALLS AS IRELAND RESTS. Belfast, Ulster. Protestant military forces led by England have managed to at last crush the remaining Catholic stronghold of Cork. Most of the regular combat forces disintegrated in the wake of the initial attack. With little food and supply the Catholics were unable to defeat the Protestant forces. The Cork government has fallen into collapse and the leaders have been imprisoned by the Ulster leadership. Ireland has been unified once again under a Protestant leadership. The Ulster government has promised temporary amnesty to all enlisted forces of the Cork government. They have begun integrating the Irish infrastructure into a single unit.

    BELGIUM ANNEXED. Paris, France. Before the assassination of Philippe Petain later in the year, the French government has signed papers officially recognizing the end of the Belgian nation. Belgium was therefore soon recognized as a de facto part of France proper, recognized as part of the French imperial metropol. This news has been met with much resentment within the former borders of Belgium. The country has been rumored to be nearing rebellion and the French military remains on alert for any possibly insurgency.

    African/Middle Eastern News Report

    FIGHTING REPORTED IN WEST AFRICA. Christianburg, Danish Empire. Danish and French troops are reported to have clashed in brutal combat along the French and Danish colonial borders in Africa. What began as a minor skirmish between localized allied natives turned into a major battle as reinforcements were brought in by both local commanders. Several thousand casualties have been acknowledged by both sides, and the French army is seen to be the clear winner of the conflict. No one is sure why the fighting began, but point to probable agitation between various cultures and tribes along the two nations’ borders. (-1 Infantry Brigade for both France and the Danish Empire.)

    PERSIANS RIOTS IN ARABISTAN. Ahvaz, Arabistan. Persian nationalists throughout the nation of Arabistan demonstrated against the government this year. They have protested Virginian colonial rule and have issued demands for reunification with Persia. The government responded quickly by deploying military to troublesome regions and quelling the protests with force. Heavy casualties and damages were inflicted by the military in their efforts to restore order, though they ultimately proved successful. Most Persian rabble rousers have been arrested and jailed by the government. (+1 Stability, -2 Manpower)

    RIOTING IN LIBERIA. Forsythville, Liberia. An anti-Georgian and anti-Klan march in Liberia soon turned into a brutal riot when protestors claimed that the Georgian ambassador owned a copy of the Klannist book, An American Struggle. The population rallied against the Georgian embassy, and only localized forces prevented a storming of the building. The rioters, angry with their failure, took their outrage out on neighboring businesses and districts, setting the city aflame. This has marked yet another anti-Georgian turn in Liberian politics as the nation grows increasingly distant from the Georgian mainland.

    AFGHAN-PERSIAN WAR CONTINUES. Kabul, Afghanistan. Fighting continues to rage on the Persian and Afghani border this year, as Persian forces futilely attempted to cross the border. Afghan forces, preparing themselves against invasion, have managed to retain their unity in the continuing combat. Afghanistan has emerged as the clear winner this year, holding their border, though they have not made further advances into Persia, hoping to obtain a new peace.
    Casualty List
    Afghanistan: 7 Infantry Brigades, 5 Artillery Brigades
    Persia: 9 Infantry Brigades, 6 Artillery Brigades

    Asian/Pacific News Report

    DIVISION IN GUANGXI. Ghangzhou, Guangxi. As fighting continues to rage against the Republic of China, the warlord of Guangxi faces an internalized crisis. The lower leaders of the military, tired of being ordered into futile assault after assault against the Republic, have been defecting back to the republic, as have a large number of troops. The numbers have continued to increased dramatically as the year progressed, and the numbers are estimated now to be in the tens of thousands. This has been heralded as a bloodless victory for the Republic, as the military swells. (+22 Infantry brigades for the Republic from Guangxi)

    FIGHTING IN CHINA. Lanzhou, Republic of China. As in the last year, fighting focused on two specific theaters within China. The republicans and communists seem to be honoring an unofficial ceasefire along most of their respective borders as battles rage elsewhere. In the south several careless offensives were launched by the warlord of Guangxi, meeting against heavy republican resistance. The republicans were made well aware of various plans of attack as the large numbers of defectors made very little a secret by the Guangxi military. The republicans have even managed to once more secure a portion of the coast thanks to their continuing victories in the region. Further north, the communist military has managed to inflict further defeats upon the Russian army. With the republicans apparently unwilling or unable to commit to open war with the Union of Chinese Collectives, the communists have been able to bring their full force to bear against the Russian military. Well advised and equipped, the Chinese managed to take the city of Harbin, handing a major defeat as it represented the center of Russian supply to the front in eastern Manchuria. The process of upgrading and reinforcement proved to take too long, enabling the locally superior Chinese to win victory after victory until the Russian military at last reorganized and halted the Chinese attacks.
    Casualty List
    Russia: 34 Infantry Brigades, 14 Artillery Brigades, 6 Tank Brigades, 1 Zeppelin Bomber Squadron
    France: 4 Artillery Brigades
    Republican China: 8 Infantry Brigades
    Communist China: 41 Infantry Brigades, 19 Artillery Brigades, 3 Tank Brigades
    Guangxi: 26 Infantry Brigades

    @flyinchicken: I’m not counting your project as an actual project, just a government policy and spending like all your other things going on. Your railroads are better than average, but you’ll never surpass the sheer capacity of Russia, Germany, Italy, or France for transportation quality, even if they leave it all in the private sphere of things, and “better than best” with the best constantly growing or shrinking is a number impossible to quantify. Quite frankly you can stop now, you have some wonderful roads to nowhere for no one in addition to the best railroad service in non-Russian Asia.

    I was rather generous with tech specialization redistribution. The ONLY qualifications required for gaining or changing specializations was at least a minimum of 5 EP spending into that field over all other fields of research in the past twenty turns. I will likely not be so generous in the future, so enjoy your new or changed specializations for those of your this affects.

    @condor_green, the minimum wage project is not a real project, merely a government policy, therefore it requires no cost for implementation.

    @bestshot: there is no EAN research fund that I’m aware of. If there is, they have had no set goals, therefore your money for that phantom organization has been banked.

    As a note, if you do not send in orders for next update I am assuming that you are putting yourself permanently on NPC. Ya’ll will have at least ten days to get orders together, and I might even be able to respond to some limited diplomacy and questions.

    Very nice job to the spammers in getting this update to the right place. Bravo!

    I really liked the update, a lot. The Danish Empire economy is recovering from the hardships of the Great Depression, and our projects are well in the way.

    Only a couple of things that I'd like to point out:
    • There has been no mention of the Malling-Hansen Prizes in several years. Why?
    • My economy should be 18 (17/27).
    • There was no mention of Denmark leaving the EAN.

    I think that's all for now.

    Should the Seminole nation not be released from your grasps this year the Georgian nation will take immediate action. The time allowed for this term of the Treaty of Boston has been extended multiple times. It is now your moment to choose the fate of a people. The Georgian military awaits your decision.

    We are disturbed at the inaction against the Chinese communists this past year. Why should precious French blood be spilt protecting you yellowskins if you aren't even willing to defend against the scourge yourself? I believe it was you who pleaded the superior white nations of the world aid, and now that it has come, you have rebuffed it and left the war to us to handle. If you want to be recognized as the legitimate government of China this is hardly the way to go about it.

    We should coordinate efforts against the Chinese communists at the next available opportunity.

    We are also willing to send troops to prevent the communist menace in China if the Chinese Republic can be trusted to maintain after we are done with the operation.

    While Russia too is saddened by the Republic of China's breaking of its promises, we do not hold a grudge against them; we only hope that in the future, co-operation between us will be more effective.
    On another note, we fully agree that we must co-operate against the Union of Communist Chinese Collectives.

    No, it was a promise. And it is referred to the incident that recently happened in the border between our colonies in West Africa.

    Maybe you should control your native subjects, so that humiliations for the Danish military wouldn't be so proliferate.

    But, at the risk of upsetting the mighty Danish nation and all of her... well, no allies, but still. At the risk of upsetting even the tiniest of powers, we apologize and promise not to crush Danish military brigades any longer.

    It seems a mishap at our treasury ministry misdirected funds causing a repeat of the budget from the previous year and halting any possible military offensives. We apologize and assure you that those that made the mistake will be dealt with.

    OOC: This is just an in-character justification for the results of my last minute orders last turn. For full details read the PM.

    I'm still playing as a Communist, and I will be in North America, but not as Florida. I don't want to strain Mexico.

    Would have been great to duke it out with Luckymoose, though. His anti-Florida stance drives me nuts. He may have successfully invaded and taken over Florida, but holding on to Florida is a whole other story. Have fun finding guerrillas in those swamps!:p

    Waiting for a PM from EQ to see if the country I want will go Communist if it is pushed that way.

    Which just about every nation in North America except Mexico and Lakota will be.

    Good luck trying to spread communism in North America, I am sure Mexico is trying and failing. (though they probably will deny it. ;))

    Broken promises...lies...greed. All these describe you. Of the SADL, only one has shown dedication to the true cause, Buenos Aries. Your despicable deeds to support Communism will be repaid in blood and fire. May God have mercy on your souls.

    We congratulate you on your successful elections. Should you be willing to accept, we are ready to send food shipments north to your country to ensure no one in your country starves during this time of transition.

    Should you need help removing the Germans, just let us know and we will send troops to assist. These Germans are like a noxious weed that keeps try to root themselves in the Americas
