    Iran creates two new units of military, hoping to expand further into Asia later on. Iran declared that Tabriz, Kazakhstan, Azerbajistan and Balkhash to be rightfully Iranian, though if not kept under check rumors state they might expand into Georgia.

    OOC: Here is my proper app.
    Religion: Shi'a Islam
    Government: Absolutist Monarchy
    History: Until 1760 it is much like IRL Iran, but once the Ottomans fell, Iran expanded into areas which were rightfully Iranian, such as Baghdad and Mosul.

    As Amazonia and Acre were part of Brazil during colonial days, we humbly request that these two regions be left alone.

    The Inner Dominion of China and United Empire of Great Hubuyeo are to enjoy the longevity of peace by means of a pact of non-aggression along with a special commitment to trade with each other. There will be a visitation to breed tortoises in celebration, to symbolize the long live of our peace.

    Fine fine, I'll accept any orders within the next oh 12 hours or so. I'll be heading off to bed and until I wake up and get to do things that's easily going to be 12 hours if not more.

    Nedim if you want to take Hungary from next turn, that'd be swell.

    Countries of people who've been AWOL are going to be NPC'd and offer up for takers, perhaps I'll advertise in While We Wait.

    Choose your territories like you're starting new from turn one. You can start next turn.

    The New Byzantine Empire
    My claim:
    Spoiler :


    Flag:
    Spoiler :


    Capital: Thrace, Constantinople.
    Government: Theocratic Empire. It's like a Caliphate but for Orthodoxy
    Religion: Orthodoxy
    Culture: (I do not which cultures are included)
    Official language: Greelat. Mix of Greek and Latin
    Background: Our Background
    History: After years of the fall of byzantine empire, we have been ignored by the ottomans, we got week and fallen under the devils hands. They controlled an empire that was really big. They said that they "Tolerated" but in the and, they privately killed us, they killed many and called them self "The true empire". They declared war on our friends and destroyed them.

    But however, once god thought it was enough, many countries such as Egypt and Hungary declared independence, and Iraq joined Persia. Once these events happened, the ottomans got week, Turkey was vulnerable and many coups and rebels took place. many of them failed but only the Byzantines coup made it to the top. We will control a empire, supported by god and moral, supporting the westernization for the better and make Muslims pay.
    NOTE: Not great at writing histories.

    Matthew Barabas


    Matthew Barabas is a renowned French poet and politician of Greek descent. Born in Constantinople in 1795, he is the son of the now dead Theodoros Barabas. Theodoros was a Phanariot, and so he had the money and influence to be able to send his son to study in the Medical University of Paris in 1812. Despite graduating as a doctor, Matthew quickly abandoned his science and devoted himself to poetry.

    His first poet was "Anna", a simple but very touching love poem. But his greatest creation is "Hymn to Liberty":


    I shall always recognize you
    by the dreadful sword you hold
    as the Earth with searching vision
    you survey with spirit bold

    From the graves of our slain,
    Shall thy valour prevail,
    As we greet thee again,
    Hail, Liberty! Hail!


    This poem effectively made Matthew national poet of the French Republic. Despite not being a French citizen, he was given French citizenship in 1820, in recognition of his poetic work.

    In 1821, Matthew wrote "The Cretan", taking place after the French landing in Crete in June 18 1807, during Napoleon's (I) war against the Ottomans. The work describes the story of a Cretan who left from Crete after the French invasion, the shipwreck and his efforts to save his beloved from the tempest. A central point in the work is the apparition of an oracle, the Feggarontymeni (meaning the one dressed by the moon), who is described as the 'goddess' and reads in his heart his story.

    The narrator of the story is the Cretan himself: he starts telling his story many years later, when he is living alone as a beggar, doing flashbacks (from his life on Crete and the shipwreck) and talking about the future (the resurrection of the dead and his encounter with his beloved one in Paradise).

    In 1826, he decided to enter politics and joined the "Liberal Party". He is now a member of the French Parliament.
