    Actions:

    Setup Smalltime Lending Schemes to Create Lots of Small Businesses and Drive Economic Growth (Create Advantage:Economic)
    The government will put the financial industry to work for the people by creating easy access to capital for those trying to start small businesses allowing for a more decentralized economy and preventing the concentration of economic power in the hands of a few oligarchs.

    Modernize Our Military (Create Advantage: Military)
    The presence of a hostile Hindu supremacist state on our borders means the Republic is in danger. In order to protect ourselves we must overhaul our outdated military through a thorough armaments program combined with a theoretical understanding of how to use this equipment in the officer's corps. This theoretical understanding must be then be translated into practical experience through war games.

    If the previous action creating a Military Advantage yields a Boost, apply it to this action!

    We will begin broadcasting to our rebel cells throughout the occupied territories: now is no time for rest. Find finks, spies, and enemy detectives and eliminate them with proper care and prejudice. And stage a new battle against the enemy war factories: bomb them, burn them, wipe them out!

    ACTION: Covert, Attack Use our covert cells to target enemy police officers and counter-spies and begin a series of bomb sabotage operations against enemy munitions plants and other war factories in the occupied zones.

    OOC: The Gallic Empire's cultural incompetence caused this for the record. Just so this doesn't come across as to on-the-nose.

    Desert would be interested in a bilateral friendship pact with UCAR, China, and Ireland if the full 5th Internationale isn't going to be a thing.

    To those who aided the creation of the IOC: You will have "IOC Founder" added to your stat pages once Google Drive stops being an absolute ***** to me and my family.

    Modifying orders.

    Replace 'Extending the Olive Branch' with Counterintelligence Reform. (Overcome, Military +3)
    Rumors abound of foreign spies and officials taking up places in our military command structure abound, and in war, knowledge is power. Starting with our armed forces, we shall prepare a number of intelligence reforms to halt subversive influences and ensure the secrecy of our plans.

    Action: A Land of Many Peoples (CUL)
    Objective: Promotion of Dravidian cultural identity worldwide through media and cultural exchanges.

    The Dravidian Cultural Foundation announced today a worldwide multi-media campaign to promote Dravidian culture through Literature, Music, Cuisine and Video exhibitions. This has been timed to coordinate with the Republic's bid for hosting the 2102 Olympics in Chennai. According the Chairperson Ramesh Gardner, "While other countries are trying to cling to or make up a mythical Golden Era is their past, the Republic looks towards to the future. It is a multicultural world composed of many ethnicities, religions and cultural that will provide the ideas and opportunities for all of us to grow. Instead of retreating to the past, we should look towards the future." The first visits are planned for our immediate neighbors with more distant locations to be decided later.

Atlanta hosted the 1996 Summer Olympics, meaning that The necessary infrastructure is in place to host a Summer Olympics Games.

    -Empress Yasmina II

    Action: Create Nested Organization


    Name: The Radiant Temple of Zun
    High-Concept: Zunist Episcopal Body
    Primary Approach: Culture
    Scale: (+1)

    Despite the growth of our faith around the world, there are those who still regard out believers as idolators and heretics, unworthy of being called anything more then a heresy. With the formal establishment of our church, we hope to change that and creating a hierarchy of the faith that those around the world can look to in times of trouble for spiritual and moral guidance as well as an arm of our government that we can use to bring legitimacy and prestige to the word of Zun.

    Aid: Dravidian Republic: Modernize our Military

    Our longtime allies in the Republic have requested our assistance in developing their nation to better the lives and safety of their people. We are more then happy to provide aid and will gladly send our latest weapons and vehicle specifications to assist in their rebuilding efforts.(Scientific, +2)

    Action: Continue Suez Rebuilding Efforts
    With our guidance the canal rebuilding is going well. We will said an influx of resources to continue funding of the project. (Economic, +1)

    Create Advantage: The Grand Archive
    Alexandria had the Great Library. Baghdad had the House of Wisdom. All cultures have a place where knowledge is stored and shared, so why should we be any different? Our Grand Archive will be a grand testament to our dedication to explore different sciences and culture from all over the world, a collection of written works, fine art, and archeological discoveries, lynch-pinned by a highly advanced electronic database, free for all to partake in and use for the purpose of expanding their mind and sharing their beliefs and ideas with those around them. (Scientific, +2)

    Heads-up!

    1. The reason these last few updates came out so quickly was because I was on a week-long vacation. I'm back at work, so don't expect such a quick turnaround going forward.

    2. This game is intended to run through the end of 2110. At the end of 2110, there'll be a nice epilogue and that will be that for this game (besides the inevitable super space spin-off spiritual sequel). A wild and likely inaccurate estimate is this game will end around Thanksgiving, but who knows?

    Action: Push back against the PLLG (Attack, Economic - Use “Mercenary Thugs”)
    The dreaded Commies have shown their true colors in their agressive invasion of our Utopian society. We must fight back, with the aid of the valiant defenders of the free market.

    Action: The Red Menace (Create an Advantage, Culture)

    Make sure every man, woman, and child of the Consortium has heard of the dreaded atrocities of the Reds. The villainous vandals seek to destroy our way of life, and they will stop at nothing to achieve their terrible goal of domination.

    Orders Edit:
    Add new order Defending the Alps (Military, +3)
    Imperial intelligence has picked up that the city-state of Prague has intentions to backstab... someone outside the NAP. And we are the only organized nation that borders them and is not a part of the NAP, making us a rather likely target. In the interest of securing the Empire's north to this potential threat, we will bring in some troops from the previous defense force in Rome to support our border with them.

    For those who don't check the discord as regularly as some of us do - Aleks has decided to leave the game and so the Balkan Federation is now an NPC.
    Sonereal has taken over the IOC.

    Last orders edit I promise:
    Add new action Organized Withdrawal (Military, +3)
    With peace secured in Iberia, split the rest of our troops currently there: Half of them shall march to Gibraltar to assist the landings and the other half will march to Italia to support the operations there.

    Defend Venice with Imperial Unity (Culture, +2)
    The Empire must repel these nefarious foreign influences who would assist Carthage by crippling us from within. Emphasizing the common culture and faith of Venice with the rest of Rome will ensure that the dissent encouraged by the vile Gran Columbians will be repulsed decisively.

    Hmm... we should knew a reaction... adding new orders to respond to Rome:

    Action: Pro-Italian, Anti-Roman Media Campaign (Politics): in the end is Rome true to aid Italy or just for the benefit of the city of Rome? The cities of Italy should head the call that they are not best governed by antique emperors.

    Culture: Festival for the Warriors (Culture): technically we are 'at peace' with Rome but with our activities we are going to need to rally our people; let a series of festivals energise the spirit that allowed us to break free from the IUN.
