    We prefer to be called Georgia and Sidekicks.

    Wow didn't realize the UCNA was severely outmatched... makes me swell up in joy up here in New France. :D

    Here's to praying for a quick war. :goodjob:

    To Warring nations in North America
    From New France


    We are declaring neutrality in this war but we are willing to open our borders to your troops for a price. Think of it as a toll. The price will vary from nation to nation.

    OOC: The only use for that I could see would be allowing Swedish Alaskan forces to move into the United Collectives. Careful there, that kind of thing tends to get you invaded. ;)

    Do not dare presume tell us what we should do. Your nation will die under its own weight. We stand by Georgia, as we have since 1848.

    To: Virginia
    From: France


    We recommend you give the Metis people fair treatment following a conclusion of war in your favor. If this is not granted, all the debts of Quebec, New Jersey, and the Metis shall be repaid in full in the form of total annihilation. You have been cautioned.

    In the mean time we will offer what assistance we can to hold back the UCNA and the SUSA. We cannot abide socialism.

    Once the war is concluded, the Metis will make their own government, so long as it is not communist. I'm sure we can agree about this. Virginia has no purpose in the North other than to protect our own lands from the encroaching communism.

    The Métis Syndicate notes that its government is not and has never been 'communist', in the sense of the word you use. We are a syndicalist democracy.

    This is good news. Then we have no quarrel with the state of Virginia at the present time.

    If any coalition troops attack UCNA territory from New France this will be seen a declaration of war upon our nation. We would advise against allowing such a thing.

    OOC: I don't think the manpower difference factors in the mobilization of several countries. Also SUSA, Argentina and Chile are cut off from North America. This war is essentially the UCNA, Metis and PRC v the Coalition.

    OOC: Check the naval disparity above. The coalition have more battleships then the Communist world has destroyers. The only thing we come close in is dreadnaughts in which we're still only 1/4 their size in. ;)

    That doesn't factor in navy quality which the South American Communists don't have. :)

    President Xue Yue: A Bio on China's Second President ​



    Xue Yue was born in Guandong province in 1896. In his youth he worked as a cabin boy on a trade ship before joining the New English Army of Vietnam in 1913. Upon joining, Xue was deployed to Yunnan to take part in action against invading Korean forces. Despite Xue's skill in combat, he became separated from his regiment during a Korean offensive and was lost in the jungle for remainder of the war. In November of 1913, Xue found his way back to civilization but not before he had contracted encephalitis b. Though the disease was crippling, causing permanent paralysis in his left arm, Xue was most disappointed to find out he could not reenlist in the New English army due to his condition. Unable to continue his service, Xue Yue instead decided to take a position in Republican Army and was tasked with bringing the Army of Guangxi to Western standards.

    Though Xue's reforms were highly effective, little did he know the force he was training would soon become one one of the largest thorns in the emerging Republic's side. In October of 1914, General Shi Ao Nu of Guangxi defected from the Republic, becoming Warlord of Guangxi. Though Shi personally asked Xue to maintain his position in the new regime, Xue declined and escaped to the Lanzhou with a small force of loyal troops.

    For his loyalty, Xue was promoted to Major and sent to act as an emissary in Shanxi and bring them into the Republic. Though Xue had little success with the local Warlord, Fan Wu Rou, he became very friendly with a young Dong Feng Rong and the two had many discussions on political philosophy and military strategy. While in Shanxi, Xue also met the love of his life, his new friend's sister, Dong Jiang-ling. The two soon married and when the civil war with the Communists broke out, Xue's new wife accompanied him back to Lanzhou. Due to his handicap, Xue was again appointed to training troops but it wasn't long before he maneuvered his way into a combat position. During the war, Xue became known for charging into combat alongside his men and after numerous successful offenses he was promoted to colonel.

    In 1923, Fan Wu Rou of Shanxi passed away and Dong Feng Rong assumed leadership of the province. The Republic asked Xue to use his relationship with the new leader to sway him to the Republic. Xue successfully convinced his friend to enter the war and attack the Communists. Dong's offensive against the Communists proved to be the breath of life the Republic needed and is now widely regarded as the turning point of the war. 1924, Dong Feng Rong was elected the first President of the Republic of China and shortly after wards Xue was appointed as General of the Northern Front.

    Despite his new position, Xue continued his very active role in the military, continuing to take part in battles and commanding from the front. Xue's attitude towards combat despite his handicap gave him the nickname "the Hidden Dragon" based on an old Chinese proverb.*

    In 1930, the Civil War was officially concluded and peace had come to China. Xue relocated from Lanzhou to Shanxi, taking the position of governor of the province so his wife could be closer to her family. While governor, Xue fathered two sons.
    In 1933, President Dong Feng Rong was assassinated by a former Communist soldier. Xue took his friend's death harshly and while attending the funeral in Lanzhou came to the conclusion that the only way to maintain Dong's legacy was to run for President himself. In 1934 emergency elections were called and Xue's relationship with not only the late President but his former soldiers proved beneficial. Xue Yue was elected second President of the Republic of China.

    *Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon actually refers to a Chinese proverb which means “talented or dangerous people hidden from view.”
