    OOC: The truth about Adolf S:

    Spoiler :
    If you read The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, you'd see that "Schicklgruber" was one of Hitler's family names that could have been (Hitler was glad that never happened; "Heil Hitler" sounds better than "Heil Schicklgruber"). You can type the name strait into Wikipedia, and guess who you'd get?

    OOC: Working on it... on page 241... but I read that much, at least (it's in the first chapter). It's pretty good.

    To Arabistan
    From Ottoman Empire:
    We wish to aid your nation on standing on its feet after Virginia's horrid interpretation of our agreement. We are willing to send [8ep] this turn, which should replace all of the damages incurred by Virginia.*
    We also would like to invite Arabistan to join the United Islam Pact for future protection.

    * [it costs 5 to raise economy 3-> 4, then 6 from 4-> 5, a total of 11. My 8 + Arabistan's 3 = 11].

    To Sinkiang
    From Caliph Mehmed VIII
    I hereby demand your government once more allow for the toleration of Muslims within your borders. I will personally lobby the The General Assembly for more severe actions from my Empire should you fail to comply with this demand.

    The General Assembly is the Ottoman bicameral legislature. Considering the Sultan has been turned into little more than a figurehead he would need to lobby the true power of the Empire in order to push his agendas.

    As part of the United Islam Pact we also second the notion to invite you to join our Alliance. We to will aid Arabistan in getting its footing back after the occupation of Virginia. We will be send 6EP, this year. Which can used to rebuild your country, economy and/or government.

    We will no longer allow warmongers to fund and fuel the bloodbath in China after the release and acceptance by the Chinese people of their new Constitution. In order to facilitate peace and prosperity in China, we will not allow armed westbound ships through the waters in and around the Philippine Islands, nor within 20 nautical miles of any New England coastline in Asia. This declaration will be backed by force.

    Why would the Axis sink those ships?

    Because we hate the commies and, like New England, would rather see the Republic in control of China.

    Ahhh. I had understood that, when New England said that, they meant ALL ships that were going to China, not only those going to Communist China.

    That makes more sense.

    This being the twenty-fifth anniversary of the onset of the current wars in China, I have compiled a total listing of combat casualties as currently estimated by year and government. This includes losses in internal disorder in Chinese nations and factions. It also includes casualties from related blockades and naval warfare. Now, this does not include civilian deaths, though if I were to hazard a guess, based on the lack of any strong centralized government that actually helped people until around 1919, civilian casualties are probably a nine digit number, including wounded, starved, and so forth. Therefore I’d state rather confidently that two of every five Chinese have in some way been injured or killed as a result of this war.

    Estimated Casualties by Year:

    1901: 271,500
    1902: 693,500
    1903: 368,500
    1904: 81,500
    1905: 310,500
    1906: 120,000
    1907: 257,500
    1908: 279,000
    1909: 228,000
    1910: 571,000
    1911: 781,000
    1912: 738,700
    1913: 540,600
    1914: 228,000
    1915: 483,500
    1916: 698,000
    1917: 396,000
    1918: 717,500
    1919: 610,000
    1920: 349,600
    1921: 1,122,800
    1922: 744,100
    1923: 857,100
    1924: 878,700
    1925: 1,493,300

    Total Combat Casualties: 13,819,900
    Bloodiest Year: 1925
    Quietest Year: 1904

    Estimated Casualties by Governments Involved:

    Republic of China: 4,774,500
    Union of Chinese Collectives: 2,661,100
    Chinese Empire: 2,095,000
    Guangxi: 1,209,000
    Yunnan: 794,400
    Russian Federation: 503,700
    Korean Empire: 481,100
    Jiangxi: 345,500
    Sinkiang: 246,500
    Fujian: 145,000
    French Empire: 120,400
    Republic of New England: 120,100
    Shanxi: 113,000
    Socialist Union of South America: 94,000
    Republic of Italy: 49,500
    Swedish Empire: 27,700
    Portugal: 18,100
    United Collectives of North America: 12,200
    Tibet: 9,000

    @flyinchicken: Your guess is as good as mine, but my wager is that this'd be a great time to pick up Chinese chicks!

    @Book Budda: they fought briefly against Yunnan in 1903.

    As proponents of the anti-communist movement, Georgia offers 2 EP in aid to the Republican government this year, 1926.


    TO: New England
    FROM: Georgia


    Should New England allow Georgian ships to pass through the Panama Canal we would be willing to help stop communist shipping to and from China.
