    Start
    The game will start in 1901 (after the game diplomacy). At the start of the game, select 5 territories (as this is a smaller map) maximum of 3 can have a supply center (the circles). In the creation, please post the name, a brief background, color (and flag if wanted) and economic system.

    Economy
    This is simple, each supply center generates 1 credit and 1 supplies. You can then spend credits on certain aspects of the game:

    Expansion
    Expansion can happen in one of 2 ways:
    1. Colonial expansion: Colonial expansion costs 1 credit if non sc, 2 credits if sc. This is regardless of whether the sc is on a different continent or not.
    2. Militaristic: Militaristic expansion means you move an army (or navy it its a coastal territory) into a territory and take it with your armed forces. This is generally frowned upon as you are declaring war on the person who you are invading (if it is neutral territory, then your declaring war on that territory).
    When claiming/giving orders, it can become painful to post a map about every requests, each territory is numbered making posting orders easier. however the numbers are based on continent. So when giving an order like claiming a territory, don't ask for territory 1 ask for Europe Territory 1 (or in this case, Ireland).

    Military
    Each unit requires 1 credit to build, and 1 credit and 1 supply center to maintain.
    For rules on how military movements come see here:
    http://www.webdiplomacy.net/intro.php
    It gives you the basic rules of diplomacy, which is what the combat engine I am using. I suggest reading that over a summary of mine for 2 reasons:
    1. Its 23 lines, takes 2-3 minutes to read
    2. Its got nice pictures to help

    Stability
    Stability is divided into 2 factors: Economic Stability and Political Stability:

    Economic Stability is a 1-100 that tells you how good your economy is, determined at random. If it is really high, it may end up giving you an extra credit or so.
    I will use a random number generator to determine if it goes up or down each round. It starting location and rate of change is determine based on which economic principle you use. Please note, it costs 10 economic stability to change your form of economics:
    Traditional (Caste): Start: 70 Change: -1 for every supply center you gained in the last 3 years.
    Command (Communism): Start: 60 Change: maximum of +/-1 for every 3 supply centers you have, to a maximum growth of 3 and minimum decline of 6. (RNG to decide)
    Market (Capitalism): Start: 50 maximum+/- 15 per year. (RNG used to decide)
    Mixed (Regulated Capitalism) Start: 50 Change: Maximum +/-10 per year (RNG used to decide)

    If your economy is below 40, its considered a rescission. If its below 20 its a depression. The economy modify's your overall income for the year.
    If
    95-100 then receive an additional 5 credits to your income for every 10 credits in your income (rounded to the nearest)
    85-94 receive 4 for every 10
    75-84 receive 3 for every 10
    65-74 receive 2
    55-64 receive 1
    45-54 no change
    35-44 loose 1
    25-34 loose 2
    15-24 loose 3
    5-14 loose 4
    1-5 loose 5 (Don't worry, based on how I am calculating the change, the lower the numbers the more likely it is to rise, so its impossible to go below 0 (except traditional))

    The change in numbers represent GDP growth/decline for the year.

    Investing into the economy
    You can invest money into the economy, every 2 credits you invest, your GDP will rise by one for the year (but must stay within borders bounded by your economic policy).

    Trade
    You can buy and sell supply centers off people. You can also establish a trade route, with will raise your GDP by 1. A trade route is enacted when both players agree to it in the thread. It is maintained as long as neither power is:
    1. At war
    2. Has an economic stability below 25.

    Saving money
    Money accumulates. If you don't spend money one year, you can spend it the following year. However Traditionalists cannot save money. Also Supplies cannot be saved.

    Roleplaying
    This will mainly be a roleplaying game. Don't come to play just for the strategic output, you will be required to write at least one story (minum 3 lines) a week concerning the country/government etc. Also DO NOT powergame, powergamers will loose political stability points.

    Turn order
    Each week will represent 1 year in game and will have 3 turns. Spring, Fall and Winter (I would call it builds, but it is where the GDP growth/decline, trade, etc is used). Spring and fall will last 1 day. Winter will last 2. Between each turn will be a day that gives the GM a chance to update the game.


    CLARIFICATION: The Spring and fall are movement orders. No income or claims happen, just attacking/defending with armies.
    Winter is where income and claims happen.

    The map (The territories with circles in them represent supply centers)
    Spoiler :


    Ok sign ups now starting. The first update will be on Monday. You have until then to post your starting claims.

    Rules I think I forgot to mention:
    1. Only your starting 3 supply centers can build units, this means the maximum amount of units you can build in a turn is 3.
    2. Fleets have to be built in coastal supply centers.(A supply center that borders an ocean (or lake) tile)
    3. Fleets can attack and invade coastal provinces

    Year 1901

    Red China

    Territorial Claims: 27, 28, 36, 38, and 39.

    Government: Communist Dictatorship, run by the Communist Party. There is a Supreme Court for if you feel your rights are violated, but they are also run by the Communists, there is a Congress but they are run by Communists.

    Formal Name: People's Republic of China (This is the official name, but China or Red China is more common.)

    Economic system- Capitalism! Just kidding, seriously communism.

    Human Rights and Crime- Basically any real crime will get you the death penalty. Anyone who steals more than 1,000 US dollars will get the death penalty, as will drug users (Not including Alcohol, Tobacco, or the like), murdering, raping, threatening the government (Not just disagreeing with them, but actually saying they should be violently overthrown or threatening to do so), treason (Any kind), exc. Political Crimes, such as speaking against the government, will ususally get punishment but not death. If you vote for a Non-Communist candidate, your vote won't count and you may face further punishment.

    Social Policy- VERY Conservative. Homosexuality is against the law (Though the punishment is usually just a fine or small prison sentence of 1 year or less.) Abortion is considered murder. Drug use is a capital offense.

    Fiscal Policy- Similar to RL China.

    Foreign Policy- We fight as a last resort, but we prefer peace.

    History- The Communist Party took total control of the Chinese government in the year 1880. For ten years prior, they had fought a Civil war with the old government. All members of the old government were shot when the communists took total power, or they fled (If anyone wants to play a Capitalist China in the West, I think that's a good idea.)

    @Ilduce- Is there ANY way to expand on your own continent without fighting or not?

    Also, when you put me on the front page, put the People's Republic of China. When talking to my nation however, just calling me China or Red China is fine.

    Formal Name: National Socialist Republic of Bosnia

    Fiscal Policy- Nazi Germany

    Foreign Policy- We like mega alliances and war

    History- The Nationalist government took control back in 1890 when there was a coup led by Our Glorious Leader President Kahrimanovic that seized control over the old monarchy.

    No offense to anyone,I'm not racist but I just picked a Nazi country cuz its kind of intersting,its just a game

    You should have said "No freedom of speech that is against the government," unless you want to arrest people because their favorite pizza was different then yours:p

    Also, we condemn the Nazis for their distaste for Communism. We ask that you consider deporting communists to China instead of executing them. If you do so, we will deport the Nazis to you.

    Also, we want Red for our color.

    Colonial expansion doesn't have to be on other continents, you can spend a money in a territory to take control of it (regardless of whether it is owned by someone else).
    Reminder to everyone: When making claims I would appreciate you listing the continent your making the claims on, as every continent is numbers 1-n(where N is eitehr 70, 80, 101 or 111)

    @Nemid: What color do you want. Grey?

    The Empire of the Rising Sun! (Color: Orange)

    Government: Constitutional Monarchy. Emperor nominally has ultimate power, but defers to his democratically elected Prime Minister almost all the time. The nation is dominated by three parties -
    The Constitutionalists, left-leaning.
    The Imperialists, right-leaning.
    The White Lotus Party, centrist.

    Currently the Lotus are in firm control of both the Prime Minstership and the Congress.

    Economy: Mixed.

    Foreign Policy: Unlike egotistical nation-states with delusions of grandeur, the Empire is well aware it has no right to act as the world's cops. Instead, we follow the philosophies of the samurai warriors of old, seeking to defend honor and truth whenever they are threatened. Challenge us and you awake a fierce dragon willing to fight to the bitter end. Make allies of us and we will stand by you through thick and thin, with no second thoughts.

    Fiscal Policy: Capitalism is prevalent in Japan, however we believe in the ideals of protectionism, tariffs, and government interventionism.

    Human Rights and Crime: Murder, rape and torture are all death penalty crimes. Animal, child and spousal abuse are both life imprisonment charges. Also crimes are religious hazing and abuse of the freedom of speech, such as picketing military funerals. The intermingling of religious and political agendas is not allowed, and often results in either a rather large fine or a 2-year jail term for abuse of office. Treason is punished by beheading after formal court process.

    Social Policy: Very liberal. What you believe religiously is none of the government's concern, and the government is expressly forbidden - on many levels - from adopting a state religion. Also there is full - and I mean FULL - equality between all ethnic groups, all sexual orientations and between the sexes themselves. Things like abortion are fully legal, as the government believes that it is not their place to legislate such an issue. Tolerance and rationality are the prime planks of the education system, which encourages homeschooling above all other forms of learning. The Educational Board's motto is even The greatest sign of maturity is hearing someone you hate say something you despise and admitting they may have a point.

    Japan is where many of the Republican Chinese leaders that escaped the Communists fled.

    What? You can't get any more left than Communism. If there was an ever more lefty way to rule, the people of the world would be blinded. So, how does this work?

    your under the assumption that left wing economics = left wing social policy. There are tons of examples (Hitler) who had a very left wing economic policy (Hitler) but their social policies (Hitler) where very very right wing (Hitler). Its known as National Socialism when the economic policy is left wing, but the social policy is right wing. National Socialism is a combination of Communism and Fascism


    However: After doing more research, in rl, China's social policies are either left wing or right wing depending on the issue. The country is pro-choice over pro-life, however they have implemented a one child policies. They support gay marriage, however drugs are illegal.
    But I would like to remind you that this isn't rl china, so dommy can technically do what he wants

    Your country (and every non-traditionalist country) has 3 credits and enough supplies to support 3 armies/navies. If you want (as it will save me time on Monday) you can decide you opening builds now. Remember you don't have to spend all your money and you can choose to save it if you want.

    @Everyone: Sorry, I think I forgot to add this to the rules. New units (regardless of whether they are army or navy) are to be built in factories. This means that every new unit can only be built in territories with sc (supply centers) in them. They also have to be one of your original sc.
    So LH where do you want fleet?(Either territory 33 or 35 are your options)

    I update the rule page with 3 rules I might have forgotten to mention.

    Based on the 3 rules I forgot to mention in the opening post, do you want to keep the army as is, or change it to a fleet?
