    I specifically wrote in the orders to cede control of the Rock to Germans, Nuka.

    Han are Chinese. Countless emperors were Han. Only in the past few hundred years have emperors not been Han. Jurchens came in and conquered China, but in the end they became Chinese too.

    Han and Cantonese are the very foundations of China. Turning your back on your heritage is sheer lunacy, for only a lunatic can deny fact.

    Tell that to Mao. He liked to wear it a lot. As did Jiang Jieshi, and Sun Zhongshan.

    The Spanish Republic

    Reconfirms its dedication and obligations to the Fraternal Brotherhood, as well as our stand against forces of encroaching and aggressive monarchies who wage war of terror and oppression against other peoples.

    To the people of Germany, the people of Spain stand with you completely. Despite our initial misgivings and distrust, the Parliament has now come to respect the German states' dedication to equality and betterment of our people. Let us, together, inform the Russians and the British how wrong they were in choosing Europe as their next goal in their imperial expansionism.

    -Secretary of War, Carlos Estradas.

    Mobilization is henceforth raised to 90%.

    Hey Crezth - my mobilization should be 80%, not 70%. I remember you suggested 70% in your RFI, but I never enacted the change, since I needed the troops. Also, this turn I was producing Heavy Fighters, not Light Fighters. Not critical, but important.

    P.S. I'm not gonna mention other questionable stat changes, since you're still spot-checking them.

    P.P.S. And a great update, guys. Things are going better than we expected.

    I figure we give Crezth a few days to polish up the stats before we point out issues.

    From the German Union
    To the World
    CC the “Holy Roman Empire” the Moscow megalomaniacs


    Socialism stands evermore defiant, now thrice aggressed by imperialism’s vultures. We will fight or die – our enemies are colonizers, and they view Germany as the next colony. We shall be victorious and this is why:

    1 – Our Will Is Greater

    While for the crazy-eyed vampires in the Kremlin, Germany is like Hungary, which is like Romania, which is like China, which is like Poland, which is like Finland – and also like Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, White Ruthenia, Georgia, Azeria, Armenia, Circassia, the Kazakhs, the Turkmen, the Asians, the Siberians – we are a conquest, in a long chain of conquests. The Russian militarists may find us a desirable annexation, they may try to muster their people's will to further overstretch their imperial reach – but they will never match our will. While in Russia this is a fight for greater empire, for us this is a fight for our very existence.

    Every sector of our society now exists under the immediate pressure to survive. Our workers, our scientists, our engineers, our tacticians, our commanders, our leaders – our people work harder and smarter than any other before us for we exist under conditions never before experienced by any people. We defend our homes from the most brutish regimes imaginable, we defend our way of life from empire and occupation, and we will win because our courage and heroism cannot be matched.

    2 – Freedom Triumphs Tyranny​


    We are not just Germans fighting for a free Germany – we are socialists. We are the liberated portion of the world’s working class. We fight for more than just survival, we fight for freedom. We fight for the rights of the great mass of the people. The megalomaniacs of Moscow and the mad militarists of London fight for themselves – they want greater riches for their empire, they wish nothing but to please their capitalist and aristocratic classes. They have created two of the most brutish regimes in human history – one based out of England that flaunts the law and executes thousands without trial, without mercy, without reason but for the bloodthirsty will of Tom Black. In Russia we have an enemy even worse – an unholy empire that sends thousands to the grave in death camps built for the sole purpose of unlimited cruelty.

    This is no ordinary war. This is the single most righteous war in human history. On the side of imperialism and capitalism we have the two most wretched, brutal, bloodthirsty and wicked regimes ever to exist. Regimes that condone roving death squads through the streets of Birmingham and order thousands to march into death camps in Poland.

    On the other side we have a constellation of free nations whose governments support some of the most sweeping programs of social uplift and labour protection ever devised. In Germany, in France, in Spain we have equality before the law, rights for religious and ethnic minorities, the abolition of all poverty, and authentic, popularly elected people’s governments. Our morals are mightier than those of our pathetic, desperate, self-destructive adversaries.

    3 – Socialism Is More Rational​


    Our enemies strike out at us in fear of the “cancer” of socialism – because the Russians and the English know we are the superhuman social order, our way of life is not just morally superior, but more rational and creative. Any nation that liberates the great mass of the people from stupefaction, servitude and oppression will unleash the great potential of mankind like never before – and in Germany we have done just that. Our engineers are more numerous, more clever, more knowledgeable. Our scientists define the edge of human knowledge. Our workers are proud to labour for the nation – not because they must earn a wage but because they contribute to a truly egalitarian social order run by workers, made for workers.

    The empires of Russia and England are built on the opposite assumption: oppress the people, enslave them and never reward the creative, never inspire them to imagine themselves as part of anything other than a tribalistic faction. Our enemies crush their own people and can never reap returns on the common man’s industriousness, or the scientific community’s creative innovation.

    The German Civil War never really ended; the English and the Russians merely decided to forestall their next attack. While they were waiting, we were building. We’re done construction, the armies of socialism will now begin the counter-attack.

    We’re coming for you too, Gerlach Trautmann.

    Potsdam Publikradio, broadcast of February 19, 1938

    Spoiler :

    "Guten morgen komeraden. If you hear this broadcast, I guarantee you have at least three things: good sense of humor and a Bohemian radio set... Wait, did I say "three things?" Nah, never mind the third one, the Tommy's took away your Harrenhausen beer, now that all they have is that Black&Tan misery, ha! But what am I saying? Their own Irish bartenders refuse to serve them even water. Unless it comes with a blot of spit in it. Which still must be pretty popular in England nowadays, because it's that or Russian vodka, and let me tell you komraden it's a damn no-brainer right here.

    "Anyways, if you're still with me, it means you're not a Tommy and not an Ivan, but a fellow human being. It's 7 am, and I'm Weiß Ferdl of Potsdam Publikradio. Some of you have been asking me, am I still sitting in Potsdam? Hell no, komraden, sweet Potsdam is now taking a rest from me and enjoying a visit from another comedian, my most talented colleague Prince August Lord-Regent Gerlach Trautmann von Genghis-khan. Yeah-yeah, that poor block whose parents were so freaked out by his creepy mustache when he was born that they gave him a last name instead of a first name. Now he has two last names, no first one. Gerlach freaking Trautmann... How are you buddy? How's your day going, Gerlach? [In stern father's voice] "Have you finished going potty, Gerlach?" [In little kid's voice] "No papa, I'm still struggling to build an empire." [Giggling] [In stern father's voice] "Get out, you little brat. You've already made an empire in your pants last Friday, and boy did it smell..." [Giggling]

    "Ah, sorry, komeraden, your old bud Weiß did it again. Not proud of it, not proud. I'm growing old, yeah. Old people joke dirty when they feel bad for somebody. I feel bad. I feel so bad for Trautmann I almost wish that his first name could be "Lord-Regent." But no! [In stern father's voice] Gerlach!

    "Alright, done. I'm done. Done. No more Gerlach jokes. What was I talking about? Oh, yeah, Postdam. Can't be in Potsdam now, sorry. I've made so many Gerlach jokes before, the poor sod now invades each place where I show up. Gotta move to London now, let the Ivan's invade Tom Black's neighborhood.

    "Anyway, they tell me I gotta wrap up before my buddy Gerlach invades our studio here with some dozen divisions. We have two men and three women working here, so the Russians should be able to take it after a few days of fighting. Maybe they'll end up pronouncing my little stool here, too, a territory of the Holy Roman Empire. By the way, was it "Holy Roman Empire," or was the little Tsar too illiterate to spell it right? I think he meant "Un-Holy Roman-Ov V-ampire." Ha-ha, no more lame dad's jokes either, I promise you, folks. Shame on me. Shame on my buddy Gerlach and his pet Tsar.

    "A-a-a-and they just told me I seriously gotta wrap up! Time for some important news here, they just told me. Have a good day, komeraden. With you today was your old pal Weiß Ferdl. Stay cheerful and strong. And if you meet Komerad Jager on the street, tell the old fart to stop building his toy interceptors. We have enough of them to import monkeys from Sudafrika and have them pilot each of those suckers into Tom Black's backyard. Good bye! Carry on, Deutschland!"

    From : Persian Empire

    To : Great Britain


    While we realise that the international situation is complicated, we would like to make the agreement we reached with Britain, concerning persian oil production, official.

    - Persia accepts the fact that British Petroleum controlls all exsisting oil production in mainland Persia.

    - All current and future persian Oil-production outside mainland Persia will be controlled by the Persian goverment.

    The Persian Shah agrees to this temporiarly agreement.

    I think Britain has just sold to Persia all of the world oil it doesn't own.
