    On The Eternal Crusade of Liberation and The Horrors of Secularism

    When I was first granted power in Nigeria, by the grace of God and guns, I had one goal: the liberation of good Christians from oppression. In Nigeria’s case in 2020, that oppression was coming from the Muslim, who was oppressing the Lord’s children through terror and the threat of violence. I launched the First Crusade of Liberation too free the good Christians of Nigeria from this oppression. Now the Christians in Nigeria can live free lives, free to worship the Lord as I see fit. When I had unified Nigeria, I saw that ours was not the only nation in which good Christians were oppressed. Christians in Benin were also suffering under the yokes of the Muslim and the pagan. Thus, in 2027, after much prayer and reflection, I initiated the Second Crusade of Liberation to free Benin’s Christians. Once they had been liberated, I noticed that in Togo Christians also suffered from Muslim and Pagan oppression. Once again with the Lord’s guidance, I called on all good Nigerians to aid me in the Third Crusade of Liberation to free Togo in 2028. Another resounding success brought freedom and truth to Togo. I was happy, for now I could bring Enlightenment to the Beninese and Togolese. Christians there were sincere Christians, to be sure, but they erred in their beliefs!


    I rectified this, bringing these lost children of Christ under the caring wings of the Nigerian National Church. I also attempted to bring the Muslims and Pagans in these nations into the fold, or sent them to be judged by the Lord, for the Lord said “judge not lest ye be judged;” the final judgment could not be mine, so I left it to the Lord to decide which circle of Hell these heathens ought to be cast to. Now, some may say, I stand triumphant and victorious, but I say first that every victory I have had has only been possible through the Lord, through which all things are possible. Secondly, I have not yet triumphed, for Christians everywhere still suffer from oppression. Even in Ghana, a nation in which most men are Christians, they suffer, both from the errors in their beliefs, and from oppression that is at least the equal of Muslim and Pagan rule: the oppression of Secularism. The secularists in Ghana prevent the good Christians there from being able to live out the Word and Truth of Our Lord as they should be able to. I condemn this, and refuse to let this stand! I grieve, for I have come to realize that the Crusades of Liberation may never end, for Christians are oppressed almost everywhere, though there are a select few nations which manage serve their Christians in good faith. I will dedicate the rest of my life to the Crusades of Liberation, and I know, brothers and sisters, that all of my fellow Nigerians will fight with equal fervor and zealotry to help me to bring Christ’s mercy and love to the world!

    I'd be ok with moving it up. I'll try to get orders in tomorrow either way.

    The New Middle East:















    Today, President and Supreme Military Commander Mehmet Melhara, Supreme General Avjan Hamet and Prime Minister Assad Mohament gave a speech after the Military Parade for the Union Day (National holiday in UAR).

    ''Our Government struggles, Mr. Melhara said, to bring stability, freedom and protection to the Middle East. The new Middle East I envision is a Middle East of Peace and Stability!!!''

    Mr. Avjan talked about the security of the nation:

    ''Our armed forces are strong enough to secure a lasting peace and stability in the Middle East. The United Arab Republic is a beacon of stability in the troubled area of the Middle East. We shall secure that the Middle East will be stable and peaceful.''

    Mr. Assad's speech was more about the diplomatic relations of the UAR with other countries:

    ''We believe that the UAR is isolated right now. However, we shall try to create a peaceful enviroment in the Middle East and at the same time, co-operate with other countries of the Western World, like USA or the EU or Russia.''

    The Government of UAR:

    Have you ever wondered who controls the United Arab Republic? Here is the list of three men who have absolute power in this Arab Nation:

    Mehmet Melhara



    Mehmet is Supreme Commander of the Islamic Republican Guards and President of the Republic. He took power after a coup against President Alexander. He is an Arab-American and has studied in a Military College in USA. He supports a pro-USA, although the USA does not seem to want to ally with UAR. He is the true leader of the nation and has most of the powers in his hands.

    Avjan Hamet



    Avjan is the Supreme General of the Armed Forces of the UAR and is the second most powerful nation in the country. He is very loyal to Mehmet and enjoys the support of the army. He mainly controls foreign policy and the military, although Assad now tries to play a more importand role in the foreign policy of the UAR.

    Assad Mohament



    Assad is the Prime Minister of UAR and controls most of the Domestic Policy and the Secret Police. He is one of the richest Arabians in the world and follows a capitalist economic project. He does not have the power that the other two strong men of Arabia have, but he has started to take a bigger and bigger role in the governing of the nation.

    From the Empire of Brazil
    To Argentina

    We've given up conversing only using Brazilian phrases we found in a tourist guide. The Dom requires Paraguay and Uruguay, as they are historically part of the Luso-Brazilian Dominion.

    Historically they are Spanish, always and forever. At any rate, Uruguay's proximity to Buenos Aires renders it absolutely indispensable to national security. This is not up for discussion.

    Why you desire Paraguay, when the two richest neutral nations are ripe for the taking, is unfathomable. The only conceivable explanation is that you desire to hem us in, surround Argentina, stifle us. Why are you pounding war-drums?

    Well, I guess that makes it official. The deadline is now moved up to this Saturday and the top of the front page/bottom of the update will reflect this.

    From: Paraguay and Uruguay
    To: Brazil and Argentina


    We think we have a compromise. How about neither of you invade Uruguay and/or Paraguay. This is surely in the interest of all parties, right? *nervous laugh* But really...please?

    This to us is acceptable. It is unpalatable to have any rival so near to the heart of our nation, but a Uruguayan presence is far less worrisome than the might of the Brazilian military. Argentina guarantees Uruguayan independence from Brazil.

    Indeed, Argentina, as the mightiest of the former Spanish colonies in South America, will protect any of our brethren against Brazilian aggression.

    Chile, we greatly desire the use of one of your ports for a naval base in the Pacific. What say you?

    Your attempts to sway various nations into your sphere is not looked kindly upon by Tokyo, that coupled with your recent naval expansion has us worried
