    Orders for Update 3 are due on February 16, at 6 PM EST.

    Welcome to The Setting Sun, my first NES! This is a learning experience for me, so please bear with me.

    If you need to contact me, I can be reached through AIM or PM.

    My AIM is jaredm19.

    BACKGROUND

    The current year is 1960. The British Empire has fallen from it's place atop the world, and different nations lead the world.

    In the 1830’s, the Dutch Empire was in turmoil. The Belgian region demanded independence, and in 1830 its independence was declared. The Dutch Empire’s attempts to put it down were draining on the empire, but they were able to rally the British Empire to their cause and with the threat of British involvement, the Dutch were able to bring the Belgians to the negotiating table. Belgium would remain in the Dutch Empire, but gain some autonomy. The rest of European history went mostly the same until the outbreak of the First World War in 1914.

    A coalition of Germany, Italy, Austria, Spain, and the Netherlands fought France, Britain, Russia, and Serbia during WW1. The USA remained neutral during the war. When the Russian Revolution broke out, Russia signed a peace treaty with the Central Powers, granting independence to Poland, Finland, and the Baltic States in exchange for peace. Poland was a German puppet, and the Baltic States were reliant on Germany. Lenin then turned his attention inward, and with only one front to focus on, the Central Powers broke through the Allied lines and besieged Paris. Spain participated in the war, but their involvement was limited and they didn’t have much of an impact. Weary of war, and on the verge of internal collapse, France and Great Britain surrendered to the Central Powers, changing the balance of power in Europe.

    Germany annexed Luxembourg. Austria annexed Serbia. Italy annexed Albania. Germany took control of all of Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. Italy expanded her African Empire, and now owned an Empire spanning from Algeria to Somalia. Spain took Morocco despite their somewhat limited assistance. Germany gained several ports in China. Germany also expanded in Africa. The war marked the decline of the British Empire and rise of the German Empire as the leading world power.

    Soon, Germany began to dominate trade in China and Persia, further signs that Britain’s mighty grasp on the world was slipping. The British Raj slowly began to degenerate. Germany began to be the leading European power in terms of trade with South America. The German Navy also eclipsed the Royal Navy in terms of numbers of ships and ship quality, although the American Navy wass close behind. The British Empire was all together collapsing. This was the start of a new age in Europe and the world.

    The Ottoman Empire soon collapsed, as a result of rising Arab Nationalism. Fascism had spread to the empire, and this compounded the existing divides between Turks and Arabs. The new Arab States of Iraq, Palestine, Jordan, Arabia, Kuwait, Yemen, and Oman were set up, with Iraq as the leading state. Meanwhile, the newly established Turkish Federation struggled to maintain a hold on Syria and Bulgaria. Bulgaria is eventually secured, as is Syria. With these regions safe, the Turks looked to reassert their influence over Arabia. However, the new Arab states soon united under the Kingdom of Iraq in order to maintain their sovereignty, and the Turko-Arab war broke out. The Turks faced a much tougher opponent than expected, and the Greeks soon declared war on Turkey hoping to reclaim some occupied Greek lands. The war ended in a resounding Arab victory. Greece however, was routed due to Italian intervention on behalf of Turkey against Greece. Turkey annexed Cyprus, and expanded against Greece. The remaining parts of Greece were then placed under a pro-Turkish dictatorship. The Arabs took Syria from Turkey, which were incorporated into the Arab Federation.

    The 1920’s was a decade of great prosperity for the United States, who was reaping the many benefits gained from selling munitions to all sides in the Great War, while officially remaining neutral and never getting directly involved. In Russia, the death of Vladimir Lenin marked the beginning of a great power struggle, as differences between the Trotskyists and Stalinists erupted in a second civil war. A similar economic boom was experienced in Germany and Italy, due to increased trade abroad.

    However, for France, the fact that almost all of the war was fought on their territory, coupled with the debt owed to the Americans and other powers, was too much. Their economy is in tatters during the 1920’s. The poor conditions coupled with a complete lack of confidence in the government leads to the growth of nationalism. The French people blame Germany and America for their nation’s problems, and a violent revolution breaks out. The final outcome of the conflict is the restoration of the French Empire under the House of Bonaparte. Although Berlin did not consider this to be the most desirable result, this new nationalist government was deemed better than a communist government.

    The United Kingdom was in a similar position. Ireland declared independence outright, and the British populace was too war weary to support the British Army’s attempts to put down the movement. Violent protests soon erupted in London as a result of this new war, which forced the recognition of an independent Irish State and the resignation of the government. Nationalism was also on the rise in Britain, and the nationalist parties won a smashing victory in the following election. The new government ruled Parliament overwhelmingly, and used this along with overwhelming popular support to institutionalize fascism. Britain was essentially a one party state, with the few elections that exist being predetermined by the existing government.

    In the 1930’s, the world economy entered the Great Depression. However, Britain and France spent the decade building up for war, and manage to mostly escape the crash. The Soviet Union, economically isolated from the rest of the world, also began a massive industrial buildup, but corruption and concerns about German intervention mean that it was not nearly as successful as its real life counterpart. The United States economic woes meant a return to isolationism, as France and Britain refused to continue to pay their debts, focused on their own militaries and economies.

    During the depths of this depression, the Kingdom of Austria-Hungary fell apart, with Austria proper and the Czech region being integrated into Germany, and the new independent Kingdom of Hungary formed as an ally of the German Empire. The Soviet Union also expanded into this land. Germany was unhappy with this development, but they were not willing to go to war over it. Also, an independent Bosnia and Serbia were formed, but were firmly in the grasp of the Italians.

    Spain also suffered from a similar meltdown. When a Socialist government was elected in Spain, the entire Iberian Peninsula was given a huge jolt. The military, under the leadership of Francisco Franco, rebelled against the elected socialist government. Franco, promoting a policy of Fascism for Spain, was supported by most of the military and a good portion of the Spanish populace. The result was a bloody civil war. Franco found support from the neighboring fascists in Portugal and France, along with some limited support from the British. The Republican militias could not hold out for long against the powerful Spanish Army, and the Axis blockade kept any aid from Germany or the United States from reaching the militias that supported the existing government.

    In 1940, a second world war breaks out for various reasons. The Axis Powers, led by France, and consisting of France, Spain, Great Britain, and Portugal faced off against the Grand Alliance, led by Germany, and consisting of Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Hungary and their satellite states. The British Dominions of Canada, New Zealand, and Australia remained neutral in noble defiance of the Fascists in London. The Grand Alliance had prepared for war, and defenses had been built along the Dutch, German, and Italian borders with France. These defenses were not designed to contain the armored attacks that the French brought down upon the Grand Alliance, but held out reasonably well given the circumstances. The French were bogged down in the Italian Alps for most of the war, but eventually broke through and began to occupy the Rhineland. However, occupying the Rhineland required a great deal of urban warfare, which the Germans were much better prepared for. Occupying the Rhineland was a lengthy process, and although eventually successful, the Germans were able to inflict heavy casualties on the French, and when the time came, get most of their army successfully across the Rhine, thanks to a few key French errors.

    Around the time they mopped up in the Rhineland, France broke through in the Alps and began to occupy Northern Italy. However, the French pressed their luck and also attempted to cross the Rhine and occupy the rest of the Netherlands and Germany. The French Army faced much tougher resistance than expected, and was eventually routed by the much better prepared and also well-equipped German Army. Forced to move more troops north to fight Germany, France was forced to halt their advance in Italy. The Italian Army seized this key opportunity and counterattacked, driving the French back into the Italian Alps. The German and Dutch armies began to cross the Rhine, and the Americans were considering intervening. However, a greater threat was lurking, the Soviet Union was preparing to drive all the way to the Rhine after the Grand Alliance and Axis were fully exhausted from the weight of war. Germany, seeing this, offered the French a favorable peace treaty despite being in position to drive all the way to Paris. The Axis, seeing this as their opportunity to get out of the war before it got completely out of hand and with favorable terms, quickly accepted the terms.

    At the end of the war, France retook Nice and Savoy from Italy, as well as Algeria and Tunisia. They also retook Alsace-Lorraine from Germany, and also annexed Luxembourg. They took Wallonia from the Netherlands. German naval dominance had kept them from being blockaded, and also allowed them to import extensive war material from the United States, who was rather unwilling to trade with the Fascists and aggressors. Despite losing a large chunk of their industry, American supplies kept the armies of the Grand Alliance armed and its people fed.

    However, the Second World War was also known for another theater. The Empire of Japan, long having expansionist goals, invaded all European possessions in the Pacific. Although they did not originally intend to fight the Americans at the same time, several American ships were sunk off the coast of the Philippines by the Japanese navy. War fervor spread across the States, and soon war was declared upon the Japanese Empire. The Japanese, first tangled up in China and then having to fight the Americans, found this simply too much. However, when the Chinese weren’t fighting the Japanese, they were fighting each other. Over time, the Maoist forces took control of most of China with the support of the Soviet Union.

    In the final days of the war, Soviet forces swept over Manchukuo and Korea in support of their communist Chinese allies, while the Americans dropped two atomic bombs on the Japan. The Japanese quickly surrendered to the Americans, finding them more favorable then the Communists. Because China had fallen to the communist threat, the Japanese Empire maintained Taiwan with the backing of America. This reduced the Japanese Empire to a mere satellite of the United States, a position it still maintains. It serves as an important buffer for the USA in the Pacific.

    Shortly after the end of the Second World War, all European colonies that had been occupied by the Japanese Empire were returned to their original owners. This included European enclaves in China. The People’s Republic of China occupied most of the ports beforehand, and most ports could not be returned. A notable exception was at Shanghai. A French Armada carrying a garrison intended for the French enclave in the city made port, and French troops began to exit the transports. Chinese militia began to enter the city at the same time. About a thousand French soldiers were in the city by the time the Chinese militia met them. A battle ensued, and eventually five hundred French soldiers were killed, most being cut off from the boats and left in the city, where they were overrun by Chinese militia. However, the French refused to surrender, and inflicted over 3500 Chinese casualties in the battle. “Remember Shanghai” became a popular anti-Communist phrase in France as a result of these events.

    The Second World War did very little to alleviate the political situation. The “victory” of France was propagandized well within the Axis powers, and served to further legitimatize the fascist governments of the powers. The powers of the Grand Alliance were forced to liberalize to their countries. Germany, Italy, and the Dutch Empire are now fully functioning constitutional monarchies, with elected parliaments holding all political power. The Kingdom of Hungary, once an absolute monarchy, now has a functioning democratic lower house that has dominion over most of the countries domestic affairs. The King and his appointed upper house still maintain authority over the military and foreign police, however.

    Upon the conclusion of the Second World War, the dropping of atomic bombs by the United States initiated a nuclear arms race among the Great Powers. In the mid 1950’s, Germany, France, and the Soviet Union all successfully tested a nuclear device, with one year from each other. Currently, they are the only world powers able to construct nuclear weapons, and any efforts to gain nukes by their allies were scrapped with the sphere leader got the bomb. Each of the four powers currently maintains a small stockpile of nuclear weapons.

    The 1950’s was an excellent decade economically. After a somewhat turbulent end to the 1940’s while economies readjusted to peacetime. Every nation in the world experienced economic growth during the 1950’s; however, this was more prevalent in the Soviet Union than anywhere else. The Soviets underwent a massive industrialization program, and now boast an industrial economy that is one of the largest in the world. However, there are still massive divides between the Soviets and the rest of Europe. Germany and France underwent huge economic growth during the 1950’s, as a result of the rebuilding from the Second World War. The United States provided extensive funds to allow the Grand Alliance to rebuild. The Axis resorted to central planning and exploiting India to rebuild, but successfully rebuilt. The Soviet Union was never at war, but was on a war footing during the entire war and most of their resources went into building up a military that was never used and quickly went obsolete.

    Another monuments event happened in the 1950’s. Axis exploitation of the British Raj did not go unnoticed with the natives. The region revolted from the British Empire, and in 1957, after a long drawn out affair, both peaceful and violent at times, the British were forced to release most of the British Raj as independent states under heavy pressure from foreign powers. The Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the Republic of India were formed. The regions of Burma and Bangladesh remain under the control of the British Empire, with little possibility that the situation will change. However, little has changed economically for the new governments; the British still retain a great deal of control over the economy. Germany and France have made extensive gains in trade with India, however. Those three nations currently have control of over 90% of the economy of the new states, and the British alone control around 50% of the regions trade.

    In short, the entire world is now in a Cold War, as the nuclear nations of France, Germany, the United States, and the Soviet Union lead their respective spheres, and together dominate world affairs. There are also many independent nations, seeking to set out a path for themselves in the world. The strongest of the independent states are Turkey and Brazil, each hoping to dominate their respective regions. It’s worth noting that the American populace views France and its allies much in the way they viewed Nazi Germany before December 7, 1941. Germany and its allies feel very much the same about the French. Germany and America are the two superpowers with the most in common, but yet they still hold many differences. Every sphere is suspicious and fearful of the Soviets, viewing them as an enemy with weapons far more powerful than anything useful on a battlefield.

    This is a dangerous world we live in. Some nations are in a position to rise to great power in the world, while others are in danger of losing their status as a great power once and for all. The United States and the Soviet Union have great potential and a lot to gain, while France and Germany must play their cards right, because if they are not careful, they could lose everything. As the sun sets on the empires of old, there is a new sun rising in the east. Can Europe retain its colonies and its standing in the world, or will they collapse only to be absorbed by the rising superpowers?

    THE RULES

    Stats:
    The stats will provide you with the information you need to run your nation, and are the core of the NES. They are explained in detail in the rest of the rules.

    Players:

    Anybody can play, but I reserve the right to decline a player a specific country.

    Government:

    The government of your nation is important for a variety of reasons. Your government in general will affect the rise and fall of the stability and the economy of your nation. For democratic nations, elections will be held every few turns. With that, the politicians elected must act on the platforms they've promised the people. They were elected for a reason! Playing in character makes the game a lot better, and more interesting. The outcome of elections will be determined by me, but you can influence the results. Also, democratic nations may occasionally be kept from passing certain laws if the majority party in the nation’s legislative body does not agree with the new law or project.

    Other nations do not have elections, or the elections that exist in the nation are rigged. These nations are not accountable to the populace as a whole, but may still be accountable to the leaders of the ruling party if the situation demands it. However, players are still encouraged to act in the character of their nations ruling party, although player actions can influence a ruling party change, generally at the cost of stability.

    Status:

    Your nation’s diplomatic status will generally show how much clout your nation has on the world stage. Your nation’s diplomatic status may vary from a mere protectorate to a superpower. The more powerful your nation, the more likely you are to influence the affairs of a foreign country.

    Stability:

    This is, quite simply, how stable your nation is. This stat will show you how stable your nation is internally, ranked 1 to 10. As your nation gets closer to one, expect more and more rebellions, less EP to send, and frankly a worse military. The closer you are to ten; you may find your economy and military doing surprisingly well, and a happy populace. Stability can be influenced by player actions, and generally you will want to get your nations stability to as high a ranking as possible.

    Approval:

    Approval is also rather straightforward. It is, quite simply, the percentage of your nations voting population that approve of the government. If your approval remains above 50%, expect the ruling party to remain the ruling party in election years. Nations that are not democratic will always have a 100% approval rating, and will generally want to use stability as a better way to see how firm their rulers grip on power is.

    Economy:

    Your economy is, in a broad sense, a measurement of the gross domestic output of your nation. That is to say, a measurement of the value of goods produces in your nation’s factories and other locations, but also the value of services produced by sheer manpower. In a lesser sense, your economy is money. Your economy will be measured by Economic Points, which you can spend each turn, and function as the games currency. You need money to make things happen in this world! EP (along with manpower, which we will get into in a bit) allows for you to build that Space Port you were thinking about, or raise that Tank Brigade your people were begging for. Virtually everything you do will require funding, sometimes even the implementation of new laws will need funding to make the transition go smoothly.

    Your money or Economic Points (EP for short) can also be banked, and will be banked should you happen to be 'indisposed' for a year or so. Of course, that's another story. Fractions of EP will not be allowed to be spent. Bankers are lazy folk generally. That holds true here. You can get an idea of the basic wealth of your nation by comparing your EP to your Manpower.

    There are several ways to go about raising your EP. Sometimes a simple change in laws could raise your EP. You can also start projects in the hopes of raising your economy to more preferable numbers. Do this through infrastructure improvements, different types of taxation, a new industrialization program, or really anything you like. All projects will require manpower. Nothing is promised to work, and some things may even hurt, but what is life, but one big chance?

    Manpower:

    Your manpower is the life blood of your nation. Manpower can essentially be used to get an idea of the general population of your nation. Manpower also has an effect on EP, but that is ultimately decided by me. Also, the labor for national projects will come from the manpower pool.

    The national manpower pool is generally only made up of people considered fit for military service. You may consider these people linked to their unmarked families, and are the people who will create new families if left to their own devices. If you expend too much of your manpower in military service, your growth rate will suffer. Also, though it may be tempting for some nations, try to resist using ALL your manpower for military purposes. Doing so will not only END population growth while the situation continues, but will likely be highly unpopular with your people, unless you are engaged in a total war.

    In short, if your manpower hits zero, you’re screwed.

    Technology:

    Your nation’s technological state is not directly represented in the stats. Nevertheless, you may find it productive to fund research projects in particular fields. Technology in this game is rather loosely defined. Generally, nations with better technology will be wealthier, and able to field better militaries and have better infrastructures. Technology generally spreads quickly, with a few notable exceptions. Nuclear and space technology are a good examples of such an exception. Generally, a backwards nation would find it helpful to receive assistance from an industrialized nation to improve their technological standing. Trying to modernize alone will be a long and hard fight uphill, but the potential benefits once it has been achieved make it worth the effort.

    Military:

    Your nation’s military is of utmost importance. You must recruit its members from the national manpower pool. Without a military, you will be unable to defend yourself from other nations. You can also use your military to wage war on another nation. However, whatever you do, you will find it essential to provide for the defense of your nation.

    Some nations will have higher quality militaries than others. For example, the American Army is of a higher quality than the Chinese Army, but is about equal with the French Army. The American Navy totally outclasses Brazil’s, but of the same quality as Germany’s. Your Military Quality statistic will inform you of the general quality of your armed forces. The stats are in the order of army/navy/air. There is no fixed limit to military quality, and as countries invest in their militaries, the world’s average military quality will rise.

    Each nation has certain restrictions to its military might. Your militaries restrictions and numbers are vague. Support personal, reserves, and such will be counted among the numbers of total military units. As you're military grows, so does the number of people in your military, be they combat soldiers, or not. As such, I will determine military totals, myself. The repercussions for having a military too large for your nation are minor at first, but grow with time. Repercussions include loss of stability, loss of EP, military logistics issues, etc.

    Nuclear Weapons:

    At the start, four nations maintain a stockpile of nuclear weapons and the ability to build them. If you are not so fortunate as to be one of these nations, you may find it in your national interests to develop nuclear weapons technology, or acquire it from a nation that already has it. Although you may be able to acquire a weapon from another nation, nuclear weapons cannot be reverse engineered. You will need to develop plans from scratch, or acquire them from another nation. Every nation is quite secretive about their nuclear technology, and unless they choose to share it with you, you must either steal it from them or develop it yourself.

    Space Travel:

    At the start of the game, no government has seriously considered space travel. No space programs exist. However, more and more people are beginning to turn their heads to the sky, and some nations may find it in their national interest to start a space program. A space program will require regular funding to keep it active. Space technology will be treated in the same way nuclear technology is.

    Espionage:

    Espionage is also loosely defined in this NES. Generally speaking, nations with better technology will be better equipped to embark on espionage missions against other powers. Every nation will start with an espionage agency, and if you want to get the skinny on your nations spy cells in other countries, please contact me. All espionage missions must receive funding. There is a wide variety of missions your spies can embark on, ranging from smuggling arms to resistance groups to assassinating a nation’s leader. Each mission has its own risks and rewards, but I’m sure I don’t need to explain those to you.

    ORDERS

    When you write your orders there are a few things I want to have. Most importantly, I want your stats. However, it is just as important that you provide your spending, both EP and Manpower, at the start of your orders. This will save me a lot of time. Also, please organize your orders so I can quickly find what exactly it is you want to do. This will be very important in determining the outcome of wars and/or technological races.

    This thread is very useful for assistance in writing orders.

    EUROPE

    The nations of Europe are generally divided by ideology. There are three dominating ideologies in Europe: Fascism, Liberalism, and Communism. The Fascist Bloc, also known as the Axis of Nations, is led by the French Empire, which is in turn under the supreme leadership of Emperor Napoleon IV and Consul Charles De Gaulle. The Spain, led by Francisco Franco, is the second most powerful Fascist state. The United Kingdom is the third fascist state, where the National Front and Prime Minister Enoch Powell dominate the nation. The National Front is the only legal party in Britain. Portugal is the last and least powerful fascist state in Europe, where President Americo Tomas rules the nation with the backing of the National Union. Despite being smaller than the Liberal Bloc, the national unity of the member states, the relative effectiveness of the governments and favorable geographic position puts the power bloc in a good position in Europe.

    Germany, arguably the single most powerful nation in Europe and possibly the world, leads the Grand Alliance. The Grand Alliance has its roots in the First World War and made of the German Empire, the Dutch Empire, the Kingdom of Italy, the Kingdom of Hungary, and the Kingdom of Romania. It is relatively the most liberal power bloc in Europe, as all the members are constitutional monarchies and functioning democracies. The Kingdom of Italy is the second most powerful member of the Grand Alliance. The Dutch Empire is number three, and possesses a very prosperous colonial empire. The Kingdom of Romania controls the mouth of the Danube, and is the furthest southeast GA member. The Kingdom of Hungary is the last remaining outpost of the Hapsburg Empire, under King Otto II. The German Empire also maintains protectorates in the Baltics and Poland, and the Kingdom of Italy maintains Bosnia as its satellite.

    To the east, the Soviet Union sits. Joseph Stalin’s policy of “Socialism in One Country” has brought the USSR into the industrialized world, but they are still years behind their capitalist neighbors to the west. Now Nikita Khrushchev has initiated the “Khrushchev Thaw,” ending many of the more hardline policies of his predecessor, and a de-Stalinized Soviet Union stands ready to spread the revolution to its neighbors. The Soviet Army is still not as advanced as the armies in the West, and the Soviet Navy is weak. However, the Soviet Union has one of the greatest growth potentials in the entire world.

    Not all of Europe is torn between these three power blocs, however. In Scandinavia, the nations of Sweden, Norway, and Denmark exist in prosperous neutrality. Finland is also firmly independent and neutral, but the threat of war with the Soviet Union could inevitably force them to side with Germany if things once again come to blows. The Republic of Ireland is also firmly democratic and independent. Last but not least, the Turkish Federation, flirting with world power, stands ready as the successor to the Ottoman Empire, ready to prove she is sick no more. Greece, utterly destroyed after its war with Turkey, is simply a Turkish Puppet, and Serbia’s position is somewhat disputed, as both Italy and Turkey have interest there.

    NORTH AMERICA

    In North America, there is one nation that stands more powerful than all the rest combined, the United States of America. Quite possibly the most powerful nation on the face of the Earth, the USA dominates North American affairs, with firmly rooted democratic tradition and strong liberal ideals firmly rooted in its culture. To the north of the United States is Canada. Also firmly democratic, the Commonwealth’s connection to Britain is in name only, and like the rest of the Commonwealth, is on the verge of declaring independence. To the south, the United Mexican States are democratic, but poverty and corruption are serious problems in Mexico.

    In the Caribbean, the Bahamas and Jamaica exist as commonwealth members. The United States maintains Puerto Rico as a colony, and Cuba as a protectorate, a status permanently in place after the Cuban Revolution was put down by President Eisenhower. However, Cuba is still deeply unstable. On Hispaniola, both the Dominican Republic and Haiti are dictatorships. In Central America, Costa Rica and Panama are likely the most stable states. The USA owned Panama Canal is one of the most important man made waterways in the world. To the north, Nicaragua and Honduras are experiencing trouble with socialists. Belize is functional as a Commonwealth member, and the rest of Central America is democratic to at least some degree.

    SOUTH AMERICA

    South America is in an interesting position. Brazil and Paraguay are the only official dictatorships in the region, but nations such as Venezuela and Argentina are far from true democracies. Colombia, Ecuador, and Bolivia have internal problems with Socialists. Brazil is essentially a fascist state, and the government enjoys strong ties with the fascist government in Libson. It’s also worth noting that Brazil enjoys a lot of trade with the powers of Western Europe, it trades more with them than with other American states. Brazilian expansionism has not gone uncurbed, and in recent years there has been desire to return to the days of the Empire. Economically, South America is developing but not yet at the standards of the United States or Europe.

    AFRICA


    In the continent of Africa, almost the entire continent is under the rule of Europeans, the only exception being Liberia. The Republic of South Africa is the only other independent state, but itself is an apartheid state ruled by a white dictator. The white minority in South Africa enjoys a standard of living higher than most of Europe; while the native population lives in poverty. However, this situation is not unique to South Africa, as virtually all of Africa has this problem. In North Africa, the Arab population lives at much higher standards then the native population in Sub-Saharan Africa, but they are still subservient to their Spanish, French, Italian, or German masters.

    The existing African colonies have stabilized in recent years, after much turmoil during the 1950’s. The Fascist powers brutally cracked down on dissenting natives, most notably the French genocide that killed over half of the native populace in some areas. Similar acts were committed by the democratic powers, but not nearly as severe nor as widespread as the fascist crackdown. However, the democratic states also used a policy of compromise. This policy helped to bring stability to the region by giving the local European population more control over domestic affairs.

    ASIA

    In the Middle East, the Arab Federation rules, and sells its oil to Europe. The Arab’s sell their oil to Spain, Britain, and Italy, but also to the United States and perhaps a bit to Germany and Portugal. The Arab populace has very deeply rooted anti-Turkish sentiment, and this is generally supported by the King. The Arabs strategic position also gives them some control over the Suez Canal, but they share this with Germany. To the east, Iran sits, the Shah with absolute power after the failed coup several years ago. The British still control the Iranian oil trade, however, and most British oil comes from Iran. It’s worth noting that while the Shah supports Britain and is supported by Britain, there is growing anti-European sentiment in Iran, which may be exploited by the Soviet Union or another communist power.

    To the east of that, sits the former territories of the British Raj, India and Pakistan. The Pakistani government is mostly independent of European influence, although Europeans still have significant trade there. However, in India the government is virtually owned by the European powers, with significant foreign aid coming from Germany and France, otherwise two heated rivals. About 90% of the Indian economy is under the control of Europe, with Britain still holding the largest share. However, Albion’s significance in Indian affairs is still slipping rapidly, and the Indian economy is becoming more diversified, with German, French, and native merchants picking up the slack, but there are some Italian and Spanish merchants present.

    Even further to the east sits the European colonies in Burma, Indochina, and Indonesia. These colonies have stabilized, and the independent Kingdom of Thailand sits right in the middle. North of this is the People’s Republic of China, which under the guidance of Chairman Mao sits as the most second most powerful communist state in the world, and perhaps the most powerful state in Asia. The Chinese economy is still backwards, however, but there are those within the Party that wish to modernize the state. The nations of Korea and Mongolia are also communist, and under heavy influence by the PRC, though Mongolia is also influenced by the USSR.

    Further East, the nation of Japan and the American territory of the Philippines sit. Japan is by far the most modern nation in Asia, and its economy rivals that of those in Europe or the United States. However, resources and territory constrict the Japanese state, and after humiliating defeat in World War Two, culminating in the dropping of Atomic Bombs on Japan, the nation has lost much of its will to expand. To the south, the Philippines are one of the most modern colonies in the world, more modern then the PRC, though still far behind Japan or the United States.

    OCEANIA

    In Oceania, the Commonwealths of New Zealand and Australia sit as the only independent states. Both are functioning democracies, and like Canada or Jamaica, they are tied to Britain in name only. Both are considered to be strong allies of the United States, and likely would support America over Britain any day of the week. The rest of the islands are divided among the Europeans and Americans, with Germany possessing the largest share, notably Papua New Guinea. During the Second World War, Japan swept over most of islands, but were eventually driven out by the Americans, who forced them to give the colonies back to their original owners.
