    Dong "David" Feng Rong: A Biography

    Dong Feng Rong was born on 24 December 1890 to a Mongolian mother and Han father in the town of Datong, Shanxi Province.

    As a child, Dong Feng would often accompany his father, an administrator tasked with bringing modern technology to Shanxi, to meetings amongst the local leadership. After receiving a few years of education at a local Christian school where he was called by the western name David, Dong joined the Russian Army at age fourteen and took part in fighting against Korean forces in the Great War. Though Russia was ultimately defeated, Dong's ability to lead his squad to limited success despite his young age caught the attention of the officer corp in the area and he was invited to attend the military academy in Moscow. While at the academy Dong was amongst the top in his class and was also able to master the Russian, English and French languages. Despite Dong's obvious talents however, he was eventually dismissed from the academy for fighting with superiors and accusing them of treating minority students unfairly. Dong left Russia and traveled to Germany and France, eventually taking a job as a waiter in a Parisian cafe. When Dong received word of the Korean invasion of China however he boarded a train back to Shanxi, taking an administrative post under the local Warlord Fan Wu Rou. Dong attempted to convince Fan Wu Rou to side with the Republic in fighting first the Koreans and later the Union of Chinese Collectives but had little success. Dong instead chose to train the local militia for the day war came to Shanxi. in 1923 Fan Wu Rou passed away from a heart attack and Dong's special relationship with the military in Shaxni proved beneficial. Dong succeeded his uncle as the leader of Shanxi and chose to join the Republic, launching a major offensive against the UCC that succeeded in temporarily recapturing Peking. Dong's offensive impressed the leadership of the Republic and he was promptly invited to join the Republic and run as the Kuomintang candidate in the upcoming elections. The prospect of a young leader representing the "New Face of China" impressed the masses and Dong was elected by a large majority in the country's first but chaotic elections. Dong Feng Rong had risen from being a waiter in a European Cafe to President of one of the world's largest countries in less than a decade.

    Despite the victory in the elections, chaos still plagued China and the civil war was far from over. Dong was able to use his understanding of foreign culture to help secure massive amounts of aid from the Western countries and even the odds against the UCC. By 1928, the Communists had been sufficiently weakened and Dong made it his mission to finally unite China. When a French forced landed in Guangxi for the purpose of ousting the Warlord, a crisis ensued and Dong was almost forced to step down before the French volunteered to pay for damages. In 1930 the Civil War officially came to a close and Dong Feng Rong was able to use the victory to secure his reelection to President of the Republic of China.

    Global News Report

    ECONOMIC REPORT. Tsarityn, Russian Federation. The world’s economists mourned this year as international instability and confusion has sparked a new recession globally. The rising anarchy in North America led to progressive downturn throughout the year as unemployment rose and former markets erupted into flames. The effects have been far reaching, leaving the western hemisphere to bring about a downturn in other regions of the world as well. The economic change listing is, as before, posted here:

    North American News Report

    CHICAGO ELECTIONS BREED UNREST. Chicago, Free City of Chicago. The inclusion of negro refugees from Virginia and Tennessee has at last sparked problems at home within the small country of Chicago. The strong ties of the Conservative government both with imperialist New England and the Virginian Empire has been part of the platform which now leads the Chicagoan Liberal Party to electoral victory. The Liberals have run a campaign with negro assistance, pledging to provide a beacon of egalitarianism and hope for troubled North America. The presence of first generation immigrants high in authority has given pause to many conservatives who denounce the move as contrary to tradition and proper society. Several brutal race riots took place within Chicago as white residents attacked the local population, burning their businesses and homes. (-2 Stability, -1 Manpower)

    NEW ENGLAND ELECTIONS. Boston, Republic of New England. The Republic of New England had their first elections since the Crisis of 1931 this year, and some believed that the issues within the United Nation States of America may oust the reigning Conservative Party. This belief soon vanished as trouble erupted across the continent, as nation after nation descended into flame and anarchy. The president vowed to keep the country safe from anarchy with the help of his Conservative Party and using this platform he soon found his way back into office. The president has the full backing of the people and empire, hoping that he’ll find a way to restore order to North America. (+1 Stability)

    NEW FRANCE ELECTIONS. New Caen, Republic of New France. The Republic of New France has maintained loose membership with the United Nation States of America for several years now and the turmoil which envelops most of that alliance has been raised as a major issue. The liberal Social Democratic Party has suggested that the nation once again find an independent road to success, but they still carry the stigma of the civil war and issues with the United Collectives. Therefore it seemed to many that the only choice was the conservative National Party, which has pledged to continue building up the nation’s military. They have also offered support to the beleaguered nations of the east, providing financial aid to struggling businesses within the East Atlantic Customs Union. (+1 Stability)

    CANADA IN CHAOS. Toronto, Military Controlled Canada. After the dispute over the electoral victory of the Liberal Party government last year, the government launched a bipartisan effort to determine if the elections were fraudulent. The investigation was in the affirmative, and the Liberal Party announced that new elections would be held, and that they had been unaware of the activities of “unscrupulous members of the lower government.” However, during the process, the main leaders of the nation’s Conservative Party were killed in a bombing upon the Congressional Hall’s front steps. This was followed with the destruction of a Heavy Cruiser which sat in the nation’s base in Quebec City. Elements of the military moved into the capital, accusing the Liberal Party of plotting with the Quebecois against Canada. The military represents the Canadian First Movement, a radical rightist and almost genocidal organization. They immediately declared martial law, and the Liberal Party denounced the moves, rallying support from the remaining military and populace. Decrying the confusion as a military bid to further enslave the working class, the industrial city of Sudbury rose up in rebellion, rallying Canadian settlers from the countryside to support them. They proclaimed the new People’s Republic of Canada, vowing to defeat the military and illegitimately elected government. Meanwhile, the Quebecois did not sit idle, as the Canadian government collapsed, revolts quickly spread throughout the countryside. Canadian military outposts were surprised, overwhelmed, and occupied. Canadian ships were seized in harbor as the new Republic of Quebec has been formed. Brutal fighting and casualties have been experienced throughout this confusing year and the Canadian people have suffered greatly. (-41 Infantry Brigades, -1 Heavy Cruiser, -32 Manpower)

    COUP ATTEMPT IN TENNESSEE. Nashville, Tennessee. Several members of the military plotted to overthrow the government of Tennessee this year for their own personal gain. They believed that they achieved the support of the highest ranking members of the military establishment, but when they launched the coup, they were greatly disappointed. The government and their loyalist supporters quickly ambushed and crushed the dissenting forces before they could even enter the outskirts of Nashville. Order has been restored and the disloyal officers of the army have been arrested and shot for treason. (-2 Infantry Brigades, +1 Stability)

    CIVIL WAR IN TEXAS. Houston, Texan Republic. At the start of 1932, if you had told the average Texan that a civil war was coming in the next two years, they would have laughed in your face. Nonetheless, the controversy over last year’s alleged vote tampering crisis spiraled out of control as the country rose in arms. The Conservative Party government refused to hear calls for a revote and this drove a greater divide between the populace. Rabid supporters of the Conservative Party then attacked one of the nation’s leading liberal newspapers. Party based violence continued to escalate throughout the year, as leaders attempted to contain the tide they had unleashed. In August, a major uprising in Jamaica against recent programs installed by the Conservatives brought the growth of hate to a boil. The sinking of several Texan ships in Kingston harbor proved to be the final straw for the divided country. The left-wing Liberal Party has secured control of much of the southern part of the country, while the Conservatives have rallied together in the north. (-8 Manpower, -1 Battlecruiser)

    PENNSYLVANIAN MILITARY SPARKS UNREST. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvanian government nearly doubled the size of the nation’s armed forces this year as a result of the increasing violence across North America. The threat of unrest in New Jersey has caused the government to deploy these new forces into the region to prevent uprisings. The soldiers of the army have displayed constant disrespect for the Catholic French communities of New Jersey and have helped raise unrest in the region to unprecedented highs. Local resistance groups have attacked Pennsylvanian military installations across the countryside and violence has continued to escalate throughout the year. (-4 Infantry Brigades, -2 Stability)

    LIBERALS RALLY AGAINST GOVERNMENT IN GEORGIA. Savannah, Georgia. The Klannist government of Georgia was openly challenged this year by a coalition of resistance groups. The remaining white leaders and members of the Liberal Party have united with black leaders across the nation and from Tennessee. They have called for immediate elections by the government for a new governor. They have declared that the Ku Klux Klan has impeded native Georgian rights of man and that they must step down to allow these new elections. Violence has erupted between Klan supporters and black activities, including even some bloody skirmishes between armed parties. The government has not given an official response as the death count continues rise, and many fear that a new civil war is on the horizon. (-8 Manpower, -6 Stability)

    Central/South American News Report

    UCNA RESEARCH MAKES NEW DISCOVERY. Mexico City, United Collectives of North America. Researchers working for the people’s government of the United Collectives of North America made astonishing new advances in flight theory this year. They have determined that there may be a way to launch smaller and faster projectiles through the air, which are quicker and possibly more reliable than both zeppelin or piston engine flight. This has been part of a government sponsored research effort which has taken place over several years and has been applauded by the socialist scientific community.

    MILITARY SEIZES CONTROL IN COLOMBIA. Bogota, Colombia. Despite several years of relative peace and stability within the nation of Colombia under the republican regime, a military coup was launched this year. Ambitious members of the military considered that the standing liberal leadership were unable to control the nation, and they soon determined that to save the country from socialism they must act. The military fought a tough struggle for control of the nation’s urban centers, but the fighting was localized, fortunately for the country as a whole. The military has declared a new order in the nation and has shut down several major papers in order for “exhaustive restaffing and retaining” for the members of those organizations. (+2 Stability, -6 Infantry Brigades, -12 Manpower)

    WAR IN PARAGUAY. Asuncion, Paraguay. The Paraguayan people have somehow mustered the courage to follow behind their standing leader in the wake of socialist invasion. Poor in numbers, but rich in resources, Paraguay has made the invasion a walking nightmare for the invading armies. Mountains and hills have been turned into ever greater strongholds and the jungles and rivers of the east are no different. Major concrete and earthen fortifications have been built with what’s left of the nation’s economy, and they have badly bled the much larger socialist armies. Paraguayan ships have even launched raids up and down the Parana River, even shelling Buenos Aires. Casualties continue to mount as the socialist crawl towards Asuncion.
    Casualty List
    Paraguay: 41 Infantry Brigades, 6 Artillery Brigades, 2 Monitors, 10 Destroyers
    SUSA: 33 Infantry Brigades, 9 Artillery Brigades, 2 Destroyers
    Argentina: 22 Infantry Brigades, 8 Tank Brigades, 2 Submarines, 1 Destroyer, 1 Heavy Cruiser
    Chile: 17 Infantry Brigades
    UCNA: 2 Infantry Brigades

    UNITED COLLECTIVE SPECIAL FORCES UNVEILED. Mexico City, United Collectives of North America. The United Collectives of North America have followed in the footsteps of various other nations with the creation of a new special forces section of their military. The best and bravest of the Collectives’ armies have been assembled together to form the elite Red Brigades. The Red Brigades are said to be relatively on par with the New Englander stormtrooper, but not as good as the Virginian Rangers.

    FIGHTING IN SUGAR ISLANDS CONTINUES. Port-au-Prince, Empire of Haiti. Violence continued throughout the year between Haitian troopers and members of the French nationalist group known as the Cross of Fire. The French have been undertaking a multi-island guerilla campaign against the Haitian government, calling for unification with France. Though the Haitians are gaining support with the black majority populations, the French have managed to evade death or capture at the hands of the military. Casualties have remained relatively low throughout the conflict, as less than five hundred people have died on both sides combined.

    CIVIL WAR ERUPTS IN CUBA. Havana, Cuba. The year in Cuba began with a coup attempt to impose a new order in Cuba against the current Pierre dictatorship. The violence escalated as the rebels failed to secure control of the capitol. Martial law was quickly declared in order to put down the rebellion. The rebel forces of far right-wing leader Angel Castro, have rallied the masses behind their leader’s charisma. They have called for a radical new pan-Caribbean government and nation, to gain more living space for the Cuban people, as well as focusing heavily against communist or socialist individuals. The Pierre government has pledged to hold together against these radicals, maintaining control of a significant part of the army and navy.

    European News Report

    BOHEMIA ELECTIONS. Prague, Bohemia. Elections in Bohemia this year were marked as a tranquil and civilized affair, particularly considering other regions of the world’s activities related to elections. The reigning Liberal Party promised to continue the nation’s modest prosperity and development, retaining neutrality as the world seems to continue to be uncertainly faltering from peace. The Conservatives could only oppose this with vague and uncertain warnings of imperialism, which seems quite ridiculous with the peaceful German Republic neighboring them. The Liberal Party was easily brought back into office with little issue. (+2 Stability)

    DUTCH ELECTIONS. Amsterdam, Republic of the Netherlands. The Moderate Party coalition in the Republic of the Netherlands has continued to hold control of the government, offering stability within the nation. They have promised to continue their middle road course towards affairs both at home and in the colonies. Both hardcore members of the Liberal and Conservative Parties continue shouting into the aisles, warning about various problems which the nation could face from equality to all peoples to French invasion. Whether the concerned are well founded or not, the moderates have the full backing of the Dutch people. (+2 Stability)

    GERMAN ELECTIONS. Munich, German Republic. Elections in Germany this year have once again been won over by the Konservative Partei. The conservatives have continued their warnings towards the growing Axis threat, and have now opened a new platform into government. The Konservative chancellor has stated that it was because of German and European withdrawal from the Americas that they now suffer the problems they now have. The German government has pledged to rebuild ties in the Americas and to help restore order wherever required within the continents. (+1 Stability)

    ROMANIA ELECTIONS. Bucharest, Romania. The elections in Romania have resulted in the domination of the process by the Conservative Party’s faction, which has utilized unorthodox processes to win the victory. They have been accused by the opposing press to have once more used intimidation tactics to shut down the enemy. Those who reported this have been closed down by the government due to their disruptive broadcasts. The Romanian government has pledged to keep control of the nation and to prevent communist incursions or insurgencies among the populace. (-2 Stability)

    ITALY ELECTIONS. Rome, Republic of Italy. As it seems the world is heading towards another conflict and an entire continent explodes into near anarchy, the Republic of Italy’s people watch nervously. The military has pledged its backing once again to the Repubblicani Leali, the nation’s conservative party. The conservatives have promised to help keep the country secure against foreign invasions and threats, and to institute firmer controls against insurgent press. They have also vowed to work ever more closely with the French government and people in efforts both in Africa and Europe. (+1 Stability)

    TRANSYLVANIA ELECTORAL UPSET. Blaj, Transylvania. The Liberal Party in Transylvania has dominated the nation’s politics ever since the disastrous Balkan War. This changed this year as the nation suffered through an incredibly disruptive election process. Brutal campaign strategies were employed by both sides throughout the whole of the process and the nation became increasingly divided. The Conservative Party won in a dubious process and many have accused the voting options of being rigged in favor of the conservative movement. The Liberal Party government, despite the protests, has stepped down, stating that “democracy has spoken and we will abide by the constitution.” (-3 Stability)

    ICELAND DEMANDS FREEDOM. Rekjavik, Danish Empire. The leaders of Iceland within the Danish Parliament, known as the Sjálfstæðisflokkurinn, have renewed their decade long efforts for independence. Massive demonstrations have been held across Iceland, calling for an independent Icelandic republic. Several of these have turned into riots as local Danish military bases mobilized to suppress the protests. Bloodshed has fortunately only been limited to twelve people who died of injuries during protesting in Rekjavik. The Sjálfstæðisflokkurinn have termed this as a massacre and have offered a warning to the Danish Parliament, that the standing bill for freedom must be passed by the end of 1934, or dire consequences will be unleashed.

    SCOTS UNVEIL NEW TANK. Edinburgh, Scotland. The Royal Scottish Army has unveiled its newest and most revolutionary weapon available. The new “Highlander” tank is stated to have the heaviest armor and gun available to a tank. This powerful weapon is stated to be the first of its kind, easily outgunning all other tanks. Though the Highlander sacrifices speed for its great potential, many believe it to be a powerfull infantry support weapon.

    RUSSIA DEMONSTRATES NEW AIRBORNE WEAPON. St. Petersburg, Russian Federation. The Russian government demonstrated a new plane this year, emphasizing the bomber potential. This craft emphasizes the perfection of the strategic bombing design, first created by Portugal with their zeppelin bombers. These craft are able to bomb cities from higher altitudes and with larger bomb loads than any zeppelin could possibly manage. The new S-20 bomber threatens to change the way of warfare forever. Some Russian futurists predict that the bomber makes warfare obsolete, because nations will be able to bomb each other into oblivion within twenty-four hours of a declaration of war. Civilians have called for “cautious use” of these new and devastating weapons.

    African/Middle Eastern News Report

    PALESTINE ELECTIONS. Al Quds, Palestine. Elections in Palestine were once again a process dominated by the Conservative Party this year. The Conservatives have been riding on their success at achieving independence from the German Empire, but have been faced with an arising problem. The rise in immigrants to the nation, particularly while it was under the control of Germany, has resulted in an increasing Jewish population, which has made an increasing divide in the populace. The Liberal Party has called for increased immigration of these individuals, while conservative Muslims, concerned about the threat that a Jewish majority in the region may pose, have shot down effort after effort. While the issue is not overwhelming at the moment, many believe that it may become incredibly important upon the arrival of the 1936 elections.

    NIJERIA ACTS AGAINST DANISH RULE. Christiansburg, Danish Empire. The Quit Nijeria movement has launched a revolutionary new campaign against Danish rule in their country. They have rallied the Nijerian people in a non-violent protest against the government, blocking roads and railroads with demonstrators. Danish businesses have been boycotted and strikes have been launched against all Danish owned industries within the region. Commerce with the region has effectively been shut down as the people demand Danish withdrawal from Africa. The Danish authorities have acted against the movement’s efforts, arresting leaders and breaking up demonstrations. While violence has been minimal, the Danes have continued to rally increased resistance against their rule. (-1 Stability)

    HAITI INVADES NOVA BRAZIL. Porto Pedro, occupied Nova Brazil. The Imperial Brazilian government faced a new and surprising threat this year when the army and navy of the Empire of Haiti showed up on its doorstep. The Haitian government has announced that this operation is in retaliation for atrocities performed by the Nova Brazilian government against local natives. The military of Nova Brazil was caught off guard and their coastal defenses quickly destroyed, only managing to sink a single ship. The Haitians have secured control of Porto Pedro and the nation’s coastline, but the Nova Brazilians have managed to launch several coordinated counter attacks which have thrown the Haitians into defensive positions. Now, far away from their supply sources and commandeering a large number of civilian vessels for the supply effort, the Haitians face a determined and dug in enemy.
    Casualty List
    Empire of Haiti: 4 Infantry Brigades, 1 Marine Brigade, 2 Jungle Brigades, 1 Faustin Brigade, 1 Destroyer
    Nova Brazil: 6 Infantry Brigades, 6 Cavalry Brigades

    CHINA GRIEVES AFTER ASSASSINATION. Yancheng, Republic of China. Dong Feng Rong, the beloved President of the Republic of China was assassinated this year during a public appearance in Yancheng. He was shot multiple times by a lone gunman who fired from the middle of an adoring crowd. The gunman has been identified as a communist sympathizer and former low ranking member of the Union of Chinese Collectives. Dong Feng Rong, from his actions during the Civil War and the recent creation of his Public Broadcast Hour, he has captured the hearts of the Chinese people. Dead at the age of only forty-three he has the notoriety of being one of China’s most beloved leaders. His death has weighed heavily upon the nation, and many feel his successor is no where close to being able to fill his shoes. From this, the army of Shanxi, an entity independent from the Chinese National Army, has begun threatening action should the commander not be granted the presidency over the believed incompetent civilian president. (-3 Stability)

    CHINA REACHES MASSES WITH RADIO PROJECT. Lanzhou, Republic of China. The Republic of China has managed to communicate with its people with the construction of Public Receiving Stations, places for villagers and urban people to gather to listen to radio broadcasts by their leaders. With the technology for personal radio available for only the richest in China for purchase from the Russian Federation, the PRS buildings have proven to be a blessing and a new community center. Dong Feng Rong managed to reach the people weekly, answering their questions about their government. Since his assassination the government continues to use the stations for providing news to the people as well as keeping people up to date with government laws and regulations.

    Review of the Arts

    Napoleon
    Type: Moving Picture
    Genre: Historical Epic
    Producer: Fireheart Productions
    Running Time: 124 minutes
    Summary: This first major French motion picture glorifies the days of Napoleon and the French victories over Europe. They tell of how Napoleon helped raise Italy out of anarchy and crushed the evil Habsburgs and their Holy Roman Empire. The film shows the glorious victory over Russia and details how they were only forced to withdraw thanks to the traitorous Germans, who make up the main villains of the movie. The French press has announced this to be a stunning example of a motion picture and a demonstration of the average Frenchman’s will for victory over all odds and adversity.

    The Salazar Crime Ring
    Type: Moving Picture (Silent)
    Genre: Documentary
    Producer: Argentine National Productions
    Running Time: 77 minutes
    Summary: This is a documentary discussing the downward spiral of the Salazar government in Paraguay and how they were led into the conquest and oppression of Bolivia. The movie depicts the Salazar government of raping the land for resources to pursue futile wars of aggression. The film uses actual footage from devastated Bolivia and the socialist front lines in the ongoing war against Paraguay. Internationally considered an outright propaganda film, it still possesses emotionally rendering footage of the devastation of war in South America.

    The Sports Page

    AMERICAN LEAGUES POSTPONED. Richmond, Virginian Empire. For the sporting world, it has become obvious that football continues to suffer as North America and South America continue to descend into war. Games continue to played locally but both the American Cup and the American Socialist League have cancelled their main seasons for the championships. Sporting fans have mourned this turn of events, but drafting of some of the best players of the American Cup into the military has made even local games dull at best, and a farce at worst.

    EUROPEAN CUP. Paris, France. Despite the chaos going on around the world, Europe remains a beacon of peace, prosperity, and stability. While the American games have been cancelled, the European Cup has been well underway throughout the whole year. This year has seen a heated contest between the London Football Club and the notorious Paris Football Club. Paris continues to boast of its team which has done incredibly well since the formation of the European Cup. The London team fought a hard match against them at the end of the year but were ultimately defeated. Paris won the final game with a score of three to two.
