    Global News Report

    ECONOMIC REPORT. Tsarityn, Russian Federation. As in past years, economists have gathered information on economic changes throughout the global marketplace, reflected within the various national growth.

    North American News Report

    A NEW VIRGINIAN GENERATION. Richmond, Virginian Empire. The Virginian Census Bureau has noted a sharp increase in the age of serviceable men this year. Experts have attributed this demographic change due to the 1914 laws passed providing financial incentives for white couples to have more children. The increase in population will only aid Virginia’s military capabilities, as well as providing a brand new young generation of consumers. (+3 Manpower per turn)

    CRISIS WITHIN THE UNSA. Toronto, Canada. A Canadian newspaper reported this year on an event which has greatly disrupted the politics of the United Nation States of America. Canadian counter-intelligence operatives, looking into Quebecois resistance movements, discovered disturbing evidence of a foreign plot. This plot was linked to a government within the greater alliance and two other rebellions which took place within. New Englander and Georgian operatives were linked to the funding, training, and supply of Quebecois guerillas within Canadian borders. Several New Englander officers are claimed to have been caught by the Canadian government, and have remained anonymous to the public. They have reportedly confessed to helping plan and organize a rebellion of Quebec against the Canadian regime and to have been under orders by high ranking members of the Conservative Party in the Republic of New England. Further investigations into New Englander archives have revealed other financial evidence in the form of covert military budgets relating to the financing of rebel groups within both Virginia and Canada. The captured members of the New Englander military have also claimed to have been involved in similar operations during the Miami rebellion and the revolt which devastated central Kentucky. Members of the militia of Miami have come forward, showing arms delivered by sources within the New Englander republic during the rebellion. Upon reaching the press, the New Englander perfidy outraged the public, especially after the release of the MacKenzie Letters, a series of communications between the president of New England and the French government during the recent crisis in Georgia. These letters express the desire for the reformation of the Entente and a redefinition of a new world order once more focused upon New England, France, and Russia. Among these include a letter expressing the desire to resurrect the old order in Canada, bringing independence to Quebec and the annexation of English Canada into New England. Cries for retribution have echoed throughout Canada and Virginia, inspired by war hark newspapers, calling for blood.

    COUP IN DESERET. Bringhamton, Deseret. The hard line Mormon faction within Deseret made a bid for power this year as noted theocratic ruler, Joseph Salt, rallied elements of the military behind him. Heavy fighting took place throughout the year as both sides struggled for dominance. Once again, the countryside and urban regions were left in ruins as the military government struggled to maintain local support, promising new elections to be held in 1933 as an appeal to the average person within Deseret. The Salt Rebellion was soon crushed and the Mormon “Prophet” was quickly arrested and executed for treason, sparking a new round of hostilities. The fighting continued until the very end of the year when the remaining Mormon theocratic leaders surrendered to secularist forces. (+2 Stability, -21 Infantry Brigades, -6 Artillery Brigades)

    SAVANNAH PROJECT COMPLETED. Savannah, Georgia. The Georgian government has made several efforts over the past three years to develop the city of Savannah to a standing worthy of a modern nation. The first stage was the construction of paved roads and a modern new harbor facility as well as an expansion of the city’s waterways. The second phase soon followed with the construction of low income housing for the poor white regions of the city. The government of the city also appealed to the black population by developing some of the Negro regions of the town. Some hope that this could represent a scaling back of the hatred expressed from the Ku Klux Klan for the nation’s black populace.

    HAITIAN RESEARCHERS MAKE SURPRISE BREAKTHROUGH. Port-au-Prince, Empire of Haiti. Haitian researchers, working with the new Taylor tank from Virginia, perfected a design of their own. The new Faustin-type light tank has completely redesigned engine and gun specifications to a new height. While the new tank is more lightly armored than previous models, it still is faster and possesses a larger gun. This new weapon is said to be easily superior to almost all current tanks.

    BELIZE ELECTIONS. Belize City, Belize. The government of Belize went through another strong year of elections. The Liberal Party, despite increased resistance from the Conservatives, managed to once again regain the majority in Congress and control of the Presidency. The Belize government has pledged to continue policies of social reform and to maintain the security and stability of the country, as well as keeping ties strong with the United Collectives and the International Socialist Cooperative Group. (+1 Stability)

    MILITARY SEIZES POWER OVER HONDURAS ELECTIONS. Tegucigalpa, Honduras. A high ranking officer, descendant of a Virginian immigrant, joined in arms with ultra-conservative members of the military launched a bid to gain control of the nation of Honduras this year. William Fletcher has been appointed the supreme military and political commander of the nation of Honduras. The elections have been canceled indefinitely, in favor of the new government. (-3 Infantry Brigades, -1 Tank Brigade)

    CUBAN ELECTIONS. Havana, Cuba. For the third term of his office, the presidency of Acturo Pierre has been confirmed by the people of the nation of Cuba. Once again running without opposition, President Pierre has promised to continue Cuba’s economic and military importance within the United Nation States of America. They have also continued to pledge a desire for stability within the Caribbean and North America, and the crisis with the Republic of New England has raised some concerned. The Pierre government has proclaimed neutrality in that affair, but has stated that they will back their allies if it comes to blows with any hostile power.

    NEW COMMUNIST BOOK PUBLISHED. Urquizaville, Argentine Collectives Federation. A writer commissioned by the government of the Argentine Collectives Federation and the International Socialist Cooperative Group published a groundbreaking new book this year on the past and future of communism and socialism across the globe. The thesis of this work clearly stated that communism’s birth came militaristically, but to continue will only arrive through works of strength on the domestic front, not on the battlefield. Through works of strength of the workers of socialist paradises, the cause would spread across the world. Ultimately the world will one day be united under the single banner of proletariat unity.

    BOLIVIA DECLARED DISSOLVED. Sucre, Paraguay. The Paraguayan government has offered a final statement to all former citizens of the nation of Bolivia. The status of a Bolivian citizen has been revoked, following the seizure of rights and property in 1930. The government has stated that all those who steadfastedly refused to recognize their new position as subordinate or part of a greater Paraguay are to be immediately exiled from the country or forced into work camps. A large number of refugees have fled from the former Bolivian region, across the border into Chile, where the Red Cross has set up refugee camps to assist the beleaguered people. Funding from the Chilean government and other socialist nations have helped these poor people find a place away from home to survive in.

    European News Report

    DEATH OF KING OF BOHEMIA. Prague, Bohemia. The long reigning king of Bohemia, Jakob II, who has ruled the nation for over forty years, passed away this year after a mostly peaceful reign. Jakob II managed to spare the country from the unexpected war against Austria during the first part of the century. After that point he successfully kept the country out of major conflict and neutral in most affairs of Europe. Remaining out of the Russian or German Imperial Protectorates served to be a even stronger feat, maintaining his nation’s freedom. The people of Bohemia came out in great crowds to mourn the passing of their king, and many hope that his son Francis will been up to the challenge of keeping Bohemia free.

    BULGARIA ELECTIONS. Sofia, Bulgaria. The Bulgarian government was dominated this year once again by the Conservative Party. Liberal party media outlets have been shut down or illegalized by royal edict, removing any vocal resistance against the government. The Conservatives, despite their political actions, have managed to rally many around old monarchist sentimentality and the hopes of a one day free and strong Bulgaria.

    PORTUGAL TAKES MILITARIST SWING. Lisbon, Portugal. The Portuguese people have made a surprise movement away from previous national sentiments. The Portuguese Liberal Party has been ousted from power, and the new prime minister has been brought in from the Conservative Party. The Portuguese government has pledged to build up the empire and to restore the flagging infrastructure and stability of its colonial possessions in Africa and the Far East. To this end, they have promised a unprecedented build up of the navy to accompany the strong Zeppelin Air Arm of the Army. (-1 Stability)

    SERBIAN ELECTIONS REFLECT TURMOIL. Belgrade, Serbia. The Serbian Conservative Party attempted to retain their power much as the Bulgarians have done this past year. The Serbian conservatives outlawed liberal media sources and pressured voting to back the monarchy and conservatives. However, the will of the people proved stronger than the government and despite harsh intimidation tactics and police attacks upon opposition rallies, the Liberal Party emerged victorious. The king threatened to deploy the military to prevent the proceedings, but the Conservative Party chairman gracefully conceded the elections despite protests from within the party. (-5 Stability)

    A NEW RENAISSANCE. Rome, Republic of Italy. The Italian government confirmed this year Europe’s finest mandatory educational system of higher learning. This is merely the latest step in acknowledging that the finest minds in science and human advancement are trained or born in the Republic of Italy. This has in turn spawned a stirring of arts and theater within Italy, as the people attend new and improved events of higher culture. To many across the globe, to be truly cultured and educated, you must learn at the great cities of the Italian republic. To all it seems that a second Renaissance is at hand.

    African/Middle Eastern News Report

    OTTOMAN OFFICERS SHOW PROMISE. Ankara, Ottoman Empire. Despite the nation’s recent military setbacks, the Ottoman Empire’s armed forces have shown some new and fresh blood in the ranks. Risen from the enlisted who found themselves under foolish leaders, these aspiring new officers may well reform the nation’s whole military approach. This trend of young and inspired new leaders has repeated itself through all branches of the Ottoman military. Many hope this trend will continue, but for the foreseeable future, the Ottoman military appears to be in fine shape. (+1 to all qualities)

    LIBERIA ELECTIONS. Forsythville, Liberia. The Liberian government this year elected the returning triumphant Conservative Party, which has continued to pledge to maintain the country freedom and independence. Valuing military strength and social prosperity, the Conservative Party has gained plenty of support from the populace. They have done great works in stabilizing the country, hoping to maintain their growth and aloofness from the Georgian nation and its Klannist government. (+2 Stability)

    OTTOMAN ELECTIONS TURN TO TURKS. Ankara, Ottoman Empire. The people of the Ottoman Empire, fed up with war and conflict, have turned to new outlets for their woes. Prime among these, rising to the top, is the Turkish National Party, a movement calling for the growth of the Turkish people, rather than Ottoman unity. They have declared the Ottoman Empire to be truly dead politically and have vowed to reform from the nation’s decadent path. They have pledged to establish a Turkish unified state, based around their own national unity, much as another groups have throughout the Middle East. Various Arab forces within the southern section of the empire have protested this, while Rashid Arabia continues to press claims on the region to the Ottoman government.

    NEW KING OF OVAMBIA. Leesburg, Ovambia. King Henry of Ovambia died this year of apparent heart failure after less than a decade of rule over his new kingdom of the House of Lee. His son, only sixteen years old, has become the new king of Ovambia by popular consensus of leading families in the region. The colonial rule has pledged that the monarchy and stability of the country will continue despite the change of monarchs. The nation’s military has also issued a statement backing the monarchy and the young new King Henry II. (+4 Stability)

    KURDISTAN ELECTIONS. Mosul, Kurdistan. The Kurd government held its first full and free elections this after their victory over the Ottoman Empire and their quest for independence. The elections were easily won by the charismatic leader of the Kurdish Liberal Party, who vocalized his contribution to the establishment of the Kurdish democracy. The elections went off rather well, as a beacon of democracy to the region, as the main opponent soon conceded victory to the Liberals. (+3 Stability)

    GERMAN IMPERIAL PROTECTORATE DISSOLVED. Berlin, German Republic. The German Imperial Protectorate took its last gasps this year as the German Republic conceded full independence to the states of Palestine and Jordan. The Palestinian government gained its independence thanks to the political efforts of the reigning political party of the republic. The Jordan government gained its independence by virtue of no long possessing any economic or political ties to the German Republic. The leader of the republic has claimed that the age of imperialism is at hand, but many feel that it is a sign of German military weakness.

    Asian/Pacific News Report

    REPUBLIC WITHDRAWS FROM SINKIANG. Lanzhou, Republic of China. The Chinese republican government has withdrawn from their offensives against the warlord of Sinkiang following a cease-fire between the two states. The republican government attributes the pull out to unacceptably high losses for little gain. This is likely also due to the lack of support for the effort both among the public and within the military. So far both sides have honored the armistice, but many feel that one side or the other may one day soon instigate a new round of hostilities.

    Review of the Arts

    For Queen and Country
    Type: Moving Picture (Talkie)
    Producer: Golden Gateway Productions
    Running Time: 88 minutes
    Summary: This is the first talkie film to be made outside of the Russian Federation to meet with widescale success. This picture, filmed by a fledgling New Englander film company, discusses the creation of the Connecticut monarchy and the rise of the first New England imperial possessions. It portrays the controversial Arnold dynasty’s last moments, claiming the monarchy to have been misled by unscrupulous advisors. The queen was the true ruler of the country at the time according to popular opinion and the film has revitalized support for new memorials to the passed days of kings in New England and their contributions to the creation of the empire.

    The Sports Page

    AMERICAN CUP. St. Louis, Empire of Louisiana. The American Cup was hotly contested this year between the St. Louis Football Club and the Chicago Football Club. Surprisingly to many fans of the sport, the favorite teams of New England and Virginia failed to make it to the final game of the year. The St. Louis team dominated the even, securing victory over the Chicago players in a vicious game, which set two new league records. First, they have set the record of most fouls in a professional game. Second, for the first time, a non-English speaking team has won the league’s cup. The final score of the game was three to one.

    EUROPEAN CUP. Prague, Bohemia. This year’s European Cup game was nearly won by a new-comer to the league. The nation of Bohemia set together a surprisingly effective team against those of the large European nations. The Bohemians dominated all opposition in the field up until the final game. Their opposition was once again the well revered Paris Football Club, which journeyed into Central Europe to face down the upstart team. The Bohemians won the game after overtime, which led to a final score of two to one.

    SOCIALIST LEAGUE SEASON CANCELLED. Rio de Janeiro. The American Socialist Football League was cancelled for the season in sympathy with the blight of the Bolivian people. The ranking leaders of the league have stated that they feel ill at ease playing when so many ache in pain under the brutal Paraguayan dictatorship. The Football Players’ Union has unanimously determined to contribute 20% of all players wages to the Red Cross’ efforts in aiding the refugees who now seek shelter in Chile.

    GERMANY ESTABLISHES NEW SPORTING FACILITIES. Munich, German Republic. In a wave of support in order to gain the attention of the Olympics City Selection Committee, the German Republic sponsored the construction of a multitude of football stadiums across the nation. In every major city modern new stadiums have been developed with intense electric lighting as well as ultra-modern “ele-liftors” which bring the richest of patrons to the finest seats in the house. This has made the people of the country ecstatic and proud of their national sporting heritage.

    OLYMPIC COMMITTEE’S NEW CITY CHOICES. Copenhagen, Danish Empire. The International Olympic Committee has announced three new city choices for the 1940 Olympics to be discussed over the next year. As the 1936 Olympics will be taking place on the North American continent in Providence, the committee has selected three possible cities within Europe. First, the city of Lisbon, in the nation of Portugal. This city has been selected due to past Portugueses actions in maintaining peace and prosperity within their own borders. The second city chosen was Budapest in Hungary. The Hungarian city has been chosen also for the stability of the region and the strength and solidarity of the Hungarian government. Lastly the city of Kiev, a burgeoning Russian city, has been announced as the final choice for the members of the committees to choose. Many await the 1932 Olympics in Cardiff for the decision of the committee.

    @Haseri, I felt that the reform program was a little too much for a single year, therefore only 5 was spent upon it. The rest has been banked.

    I’d kindly ask that alliances with social groups please post in their research threads what techs everyone should have, just to make sure that I am completely caught up with the tech tree.

    By his own request, Nailix has been moved from Portugal to Egypt, I recommend that the Co-Axial Pact social group take note of this event.
