    Germania's out of the question, Crezth, its original player has expressed interest.
    Jacobite's likely to take UFS.
    USSR is up in the air.

    Hey, here's an idea: Why don't we wait until Monday before we consign this to NES Valhalla.

    This is probably much too late: yes, I agree about the deal made with the big alliance.


    Now:
    My senior year has started. I again cannot access the forums except on weekends. I'm going to quit NESing. If ABNW lives on, I'd like to let Masada have Russia, if EQ agrees. If Masada does not want to take Russia, I'd like to offer it to Iggy.

    All right, a quick update on the update. It will be posted TONIGHT. There is nothing left standing in my way except the drive home and relocating my jump drive. There's some good news, and the NES is NOT dead, despite lamentations above.

    @qoou: you will be greatly missed. I have no problems with Masada or Lord_Iggy taking Russia, as I particularly feel their apparent talents may be wasted in smaller countries (yes, I'm referring to poor, poor Belgium). If neither wishes to take control of Russia, I will be holding it NPC until I find a preferable newcomer to NESing who has demonstrated skill as a lesser power.

    Good. Will see it tomorrow (Spain time).

    As for the future possible (non-Masada, non-Lord Iggy) Russian player, I'd bet it is not me.

    Sorry for possibly causing some concern, was simply following the trend of the past few posts where people remark about how they'd feel if ABNW died.

    I am relative newcomer to NESing compared to some and like to think I've done a good job with Canada....too bad I want to stay there.:)

    I'll express my interest in Russia if neither Masada or Iggy accept. If not then I will continue to lurk.

    I wouldn't mind seeing you as Russia, Kentharu, you've got third dibs then.

    I will be home from work in about a hour, and will soon thereafter post the update. In the meantime, I have launched the thread to determine the NES which will follow this one. I greatly will appreciate ya'll's input on this. Mostly this is due to lackluster response to queries about TWTUD 2, so I've done the democratic thing and made a poll:

    Global News Report

    ECONOMIC REPORT. Tsarityn, Russian Federation. This year has seen a slowdown in economic growth globally. Though growth is continuing, it has proceeded at a much slower rate than it has in previous years. This has mostly been attributed to the uncertain global situation, though tensions seem to be declining. Many economists hope that the economic growth of previous months will soon resume. As before the changes economically are listed below:
    Egypt: +1 EP
    Haiti: +1 EP
    France: +1 EP
    Germany: +1 EP
    New England: +1 EP
    Netherlands: +1 EP
    Russia: +2 EP

    North American News Report

    TENNESSEE MILITARY MINDS MAKE ADVANCE. Nashville, Tennessee. The Tennessean government has made some changes within the military due to the events of recent years. Using the new Italian computing machine, the Tennessean government have adapted a method of electronically coding radio and telegraph messages, establishing a unbreakable coding system for military transmissions. This in indubitably part of a program to help protect Tennessee from its larger and more aggressive neighbors.

    CANADA ELECTIONS. Toronto, Canada. Canadian elections this year, focusing more and more upon the Quebecois with the recent crisis with the Republic of New England, have increasingly divided this North American country. The Conservative Party has traditionally denied any resemblance of rights for the conquered Quebecois, fearing that would ultimately lead to independence. The Liberal Party, gaining support from those Quebecois who have been nationalized, this year announced that they would aim for unconditional citizenship for the French-speaking people. The Liberal Party has won out in the elections, but many Canadians have angrily protested the election results as a betrayal of those who lost their lives in the war against Quebec. (-4 Stability)

    LOUISIANA ELECTIONS. New Orleans, Empire of Louisiana. The Louisianan government has had heated elections this year with the tensions remaining high to the east. The threat of war with the Co-Axial Pact or the communists has left many scared of the possibility of a new conflict. The Liberal Party has been ousted as many believe that they lack the will to oppose the Georgian menace. The recent crisis with New England has led more to realize that Louisiana must be able to stand on its own in case its allies cannot be relied on. Promising military strength and security, the Conservative Party has won its way into office. (+1 Stability)

    PENNSYLVANIA ELECTIONS. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pennsylvanian elections this year marked a growing divide among the people of the country. The recent threats of war and crisis with New England have led to the deployment of troops to the border of their allied nation. Pennsylvania has become divided between those in favor of the UNSA and those who have begun to once again support the nation’s socialist movement as well as innumerable others. The Conservative Party has won out in the end of the elections, but further tension has arisen with the success of the French nationalists in New Jersey, who have demanded independence from the larger Pennsylvanian nation. (-1 Stability)

    TEXAN ELECTIONS. Houston, Texan Republic. As in Louisiana, the threat of war looms over Texas as the people begin to realize that the United Nation States of America may well only be the most temporary and feeble of protection. The Texan Conservative Party has vowed to improved the country’s defenses and military, even if at the cost of the alliance with the UNSA. The Conservatives were easily brought into office, though some Liberals have launched protests, calling for a revote. Accusations have been made of vote tampering in some of the country’s urban districts. This has brought about several riots in larger cities, and martial law was quickly declared to restore order. (-3 Stability)

    VIRGINIAN ELECTIONS. Richmond, Virginian Empire. Despite public revelations last year about New Englander perfidy and the disgust over the lack of repercussions, the Liberal Party has been given another chance for the Virginian people. Though many have called for New Englander blood for their alleged sponsoring of the Miami and Kentucky rebellions, the Liberal Party has won victory. The radical new Unity Party, a quasi-lisist movement, has secured an increasing amount of seats. The Unity Party has brought together dissatisfied elements of the conservatives in the nation, promising a revival of the glory days of Virginian expansion and imperialism. (-2 Stability)

    KING OF ALASKA DIES. Juno, Alaska. King Oscar I, the first king of Alaska, passed away surprisingly this year after a car crash. His car took a turn onto a frozen lake and due to the slippery nature of the terrain, the auto flipped over and he died of various injuries after never regaining consciousness. King Gustav V, cousin of Oscar I, offered his condolences to Alaska and even paid for an elaborate funeral for his lost relative. Oscar’s son has been crowned as Oscar II, who has pledged to appeal to the Russian population of the country, offering increased rights and even localized voting for some districts of the nation. (+1 Stability)

    NEW BATTLESHIP UNVEILED. Boston, Republic of New England. The Boston Naval Yard has unveiled the newest ship into the arsenal of the Navy of the Republic. The RNES Eclipse has been launched this year, a radical new ship which easily dominates all other vessels in size and power. This ship has taken into account several new technologies which allow for even greater power in conflict. The range, firing time, and explosive capacity of the vessel cannot be rivaled by any other power.

    Central/South American News Report

    CUBAN MILITARY STRENGTHENS. Havana, Cuba. For reasons unknown the Cuban military system has been graduating increasingly skilled leaders and innovators for their armed forces. The development of new technologies and weapons have brought about increased interest in the military in Cuba, providing not only strength for the army politically, but militarily as well. Better pilots, captains, and commanders all mean a better quality military for the small nation of Cuba. (+1 in all Qualities)

    EL SALVADOR ELECTIONS. San Salvador, El Salvador. The El Salvadorian government has held elections for the second time this year following the end of the recent war with Honduras. The Liberal Party has maintained control of the nation’s Congress and Presidency, establishing further support from the populace and remnants of the nation’s military. The Liberals have promised to keep the country secure from warfare and to maintain a position of neutrality in Central America. They have expressed the desire to help mediate the various differences emerging between Guatemala and Honduras, hoping that it does not erupt into warfare. (+2 Stability)

    VENEZUELA ELECTIONS. Caracas, Venezuela. The Liberal Party was ousted from power this year in Venezuela, as the country steels itself for a probable war with the Socialist Union of South America. The increasing deforestation caused by the ongoing Ordenz Project has spilled over with refugees and other effects into the Venezuelan part of the Amazon. They have expressed concerns over the uneducated tribesmen now entering their country, and the Conservative Party has promised to build up border defenses. They have also suggested establishing ties with the UNSA or Co-Axial Pact in the hopes of forestalling invasion. (-1 Stability)

    WAR IN PARAGUAY. Asuncion, Paraguay. The treatment of the residents of Bolivia and the flood of refugees into neighboring socialist nations has at last forced the International Cooperative Socialist Group to get involved to protect the people. Troops from across the Socialist sphere of influence have rallied together to overthrow the standing dictatorship. In the west, the Chilean military has launched a major offensive against minimal resistance, taking full occupation of Bolivia from Paraguay, which had mostly withdrawn from the region in the wake of the declarations of war. Following this, SUSA launched a massive invasion against Paraguay, striking into the jungles of eastern Paraguay, and slowly moving against Paraguayan resistance. In the south, a secondary invasion was devastated by the destruction of the Parana River Dam, washing away a large part of the SUSA military. This paved the way for a major counterattack by Paraguay, forcing the army back.
    Casualty List
    Paraguay: 44 Infantry Brigades, 2 Artillery Brigades, 3 Destroyers
    United Collectives of North America: 2 Infantry Brigades
    Chile: 3 Infantry Brigades
    Socialist Union of South America: 24 Infantry Brigades, 6 Artillery Brigades
    Argentine Collectives Federation: 8 Infantry Brigades

    UNREST IN HAITI. Port-au-Prince, Empire of Haiti. Haitian military forces were met with incredible unrest this year throughout the various sugar islands established as Haitian provinces. French nationalists united as the Cross of Flames Movement have led a series of attacks against Haitian outposts throughout the territories, and have issued demands to be reunified with the French Empire. Several major Haitian military installations have been attacked and razed by the rebels, causing severe disruption in the Haitian chain of command. They have also attacked the black populations of the islands, and the majority of whites have fallen under suspicion for membership in the illegal organization. (-1 Stability, -2 Infantry Brigades, -1 Artillery Brigade, -2 Destroyers)

    JUNGLE WARRIORS. Port-au-Prince, Empire of Haiti. The Haitian military has revealed a yet un-seen military force into the open, the elite Jungle Brigades. These soldiers, using training and technology specially geared for warfare in jungles and tropical climates, may prove to be some of Haiti’s best available soldiers. Their methods of combat remain a tightly guarded secret from the majority of other nations, and they hope that this may be the key to defeating the ongoing resistance by French nationals in their territories.

    VIRGINIA SELLS WEAPONS TO HONDURAS. Henryville, Virginian Empire. The Virginian Nicaraguan authority has announced confirmation of the sale of old armored cars and tanks to the government of Honduras. The government of Virginia has announced that this is a purely economical move in order to rid the nation of obsolete material which requires upkeep. The Honduran government has justified the purchase by stating the continuing military buildup by Guatemala and the recent sale of Italian weapons to the region.

    European News Report

    DEATH OF PORTUGAL’S KING. Lisbon, Portugal. The Portuguese nation mourned the death of ancient King Miguel II this year, marking an end of a era for the European nation. Miguel II has ruled Portugal since the death of his father in 1877, making him one of the oldest monarchs in Europe. His death has left a strange atmosphere over Portugal, as many feel that his son is not as strong of a man to lead the empire through the coming years. Though many hope that Miguel III can be a king to rival his father, the nation has entered into uncertain times. (-1 Stability)

    ENGLAND ELECTIONS. London, England. Elements within the Conservative Party have led to electoral turmoil within Parliament this year. Radical members of the conservatives have stated that the government should take a harder line towards the Irish Catholics in maintaining peace in Ireland. The majority of the party, along with elements of the Liberal Party, have united in establishing a Moderate Party coalition government in order to appeal to the majority of the English population. Many feel that this new government will likely stay the course in both foreign and domestic affairs. (+1 Stability)

    GREECE ELECTIONS. Athens, Greece. The Liberal Party of Greece has once again dominated domestic politics this year with a resounding electoral victory. The nation’s course in joining the European Alliance of Nations has proven popular, bringing the nation’s military up to date alongside its new allies. The alliance of the Turkish Sultanate with the Russian Imperial Protectorate has made some politicians nervous, but most hope that the counter-balance of Germany will help prevent the Turks from attempting to reclaim territory from the Greek republic. (+1 Stability)

    RUSSIAN ELECTIONS. St. Petersburg, Russian Federation. Russian elections were held this year as the standing government of President Jughashvili faced serious opposition from the National Party, which for the first time in over twenty years, has managed to secure the Presidency. They have vowed to the Russian people that the time for war is over and that Russia will not go to war, calling Jughashvili a egotistical warmonger. The Russian people have been swayed by this campaign and trhe Nationals have been brought on in on the promise of isolation from conflict and warfare internationally. (+1 Stability)

    FRANCE ESTSABLISHES YOUTH ORGANIZATION. Paris, France. The leader of the Cross of Fire, the French Lisist movement, Leader La Rouque, has announced the establishment of a new French youth movement. This movement is stated to give the youth of France activities for their free time as well as to keep them out of trouble or criminal acts. The Cross of Embers is stated to be a rising new force within France, teaching the youth of the nation the value of work. Further programs help the young identify communist agitators in the hopes of stopping the spread of evil Red propaganda.

    NEW AIRCRAFT TYPE REVOLUTIONIZES INDUSTRY. Tsarityn, Russian Federation. Russian aeronautics companies have made Russia’s first great contribution to the field of airplane mechanics. They have created a steel frame version of piston engine craft. Though many feel it will take further experimentation to create an economically viable version for military and civilian purposes, the first vital steps have been made. This technology has been shared with the members of the United Nations of North America, who played a major role in the technology’s development as advisors from Canadian, New Englander, and Virginian aircraft companies all aided in the effort.

    NIJERIAN INDEPENDENCE RISING? Christiansburg, Danish Empire. The past thirty years have seen dramatic reform and development in the Danish colony of Nijeria. They have passed progressive changes to educate the native population as well as build up a modern infrastructure, making the region increasingly better connected and sufficient. A local Nijerian has published a statement of papers calling for the evacuation of Nijeria by the Danes, and has stated that the native people of Nijeria are equal to the Danish people and therefore deserve a true nation of their own. The new Quit Nijeria movement has rallied a number of educated supporters, all calling for the Danes to leave immediately. Planning for movements against the Danish Empire have only begun and people at home have begun to demand action against this trend. (-2 Stability)

    TURKS-RUSSIANS CONFIRM ALLIANCE. Baku, Russian Federation. The Turkish Sultanate and the Russian Federation signed a treaty this year making last year’s agreement of alliance official. The Turko-Russian alliance has been acknowledged as an alliance of equal power, and does not represent an expansion of the Russian Imperial Protectorate. The Turkish government has stated that no one even considered that the Russian military could crush the sultanate without even noticing. Many Turks are happy that they avoiding the said crushing.

    OTTOMAN EMPIRE REFORMED. Ankara, Turkish Sultanate. The long lasting Ottoman Empire has at last been brought to an end. Victory by Turkish nationalists in last year’s elections have brought about the creation of a Turkish state under the old Ottoman sultan. The new government has pledged to protect the interests of the Turkish people, rather than to cling to the edifice of a dying imperial legacy. The new Turkish government has brought together the nation’s finest minds and leaders in the hope of establishing a new reputation for the young nation in the Middle East.

    Asian/Pacific News Report

    DESERTIONS PLAGUE CHINESE ARMY. Lanzhou, Republic of China. Despite the end of the war, the Chinese military has had a difficult time keeping the enlisted within the army. People have begun simply walking away from their units, often taking their weapons with them. Though the government has offered to allow these soldiers an official method of departure, the high illiteracy rates and lack of trust has simply led to most Chinese heading home. With a government still in birthing stages, records are unreliable at best, and most of the deserters have managed to get away without issue. Many believe that this trend may continue over the next few years, though a large part of the army may remain in service just for the promise of employment. (-9 Infantry Brigades)

    Review of the Arts

    The African Princess
    Type: Moving Picture
    Genre: Drama
    Producer: Danish National Broadcasting Company
    Running Time: 105 minutes
    Summary: This adventure film, with its main character played by 10-year-old Karen Ipsen, narrates the adventures of a girl and her widower father (played by John Price) as they go from Danish East Africa to Nijeria when the father is offered a job there but cannot pay for the ship fare, thus he decides to travel on trains. This film was filmed in its entirety in Africa, and features the wonderful landscapes of the Black Continent.

    Return to Our Roots Part Two
    Type: Moving Picture
    Genre: Drama
    Producer: Beria Productions
    Running Time: 113 minutes
    Summary: Though the original Return to Our Roots was a documentary about the origins of modern Russia, the new movie evolved into a highly successfully drama about the Ottoman invasion of southern Russia during the Crimean War of the 1880s. The invasion of Georgia and the destruction caused in the region by the Ottomans has been reflected into a drama about a wealthy noble woman who lost everything she cared about. Her estate in Georgia was then burned by the Ottomans, and she rebuilds from rock bottom. The movie also covers the period of Russian growth following the end of the war and the establishment of the modern Russian regime. This movie has met with wild success for its dramatic tale, and has had unimaginable popularity world-wide making it the highest grossing film of all time.

    AMERICAN CUP. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This year’s cup has once more seen the Richmond Football Club move to the top of the highest charting teams within the American Cup football series. The Richmond Football Club easily dominated all opposition on its rise to the top of the lists of the season. The final game of the year came against the Pennsylvanian Pittsburgh Foot Ball club on their home turf. The Virginian team dominated the field early on, keeping their ranking position and dominance over their opponents. The final score of the game came out in Richmond’s favor at three points to one.

    EUROPEAN CUP. Copenhagen, Danish Empire. Most of Europe’s best players spent the year in preparation for the Cardiff Olympics, and that left the season wide open for the well trained Copenhagen Football Club. The Danish team did very well throughout the season, though it failed to gain a perfect season at the expense of all others. Ultimately they wound up in the final match against the Munich Football Club. The Danes won the game with a final score of two points to one.

    CARDIFF OLYMPIC GAMES. Cardiff, England. The English government played a proud host to the Olympics this year, providing security from Irish rebel organizations which were claimed to have plotted an attack against the Olympics. The Olympics nonetheless went off without a hitch and has been noted in history for several reasons. The Georgian government shocked its own nation and the world by allowing the nation’s negroes to participate in the Olympics as representatives of Georgia. They played a particularly strong performance in the Olympics, gaining two golds for their country, and many foreign observers hope that this symbolizes new change for the Georgian nation. For the first time, the Republic of China has entered participants for the Olympics, symbolizing the nation’s reentry into international markets and prosperity. Lastly, the Olympics for 1940 were heatedly debated between Budapest and Kiev. Budapest was decided upon as the city selection for the Olympics of 1940, and the Hungarian press have lauded the decision.

    Your attempt to force the Danish Empire to leave an integral part of the Empire will be met with failure. Also, your ungratefulness towards the Empire is impossible to understand. Who has been giving Nijeria a modern infrastructure? Who has been giving the Nijerians education for everyone? Who has been doing its best to make sure that the people in Nijeria could improve their living standards?

    It wasn't you, it was the Danish Empire and its Government. If all of Nijeria wishes for the Danish Empire to leave the region, we will, but the debt you would owe us for the great quantities of money that have been spent in there would soon cripple your nation and make you unable to do anything, and thus the reason for which you wanted to have independence would be moot.

    Also, are you sure that you would be able to prevent the strife that would hit your nation once you realise that your economy, without Danish support, would be in shambles? And the strife that would come when all the tribes in Nijeria come to blows when the time to make decissions comes?

    Please, do not make mistakes: although you might think that independence is a sweet dream, you would soon find yourselves unable to wake up from the nightmare. The only chance for Nijeria to go forward is to remain joined to the Empire. Please, do not attempt to make such a mistake as attempting to declare independence, it will only end with Nijeria bloodied and destroyed in the war that would start at the moment Danish troops left the region.

    @EQ: not sure if I haven't said this already, but the rest of the EAN should have already received Submarines 2 and Anti-Sub Measures. Also, good to see that my idea for a film has appeared. For when the Academy Awards?

    Not sure what you mean by that. You and SUSA have a foothold, and my force doesn't even appear to have entered the country.
