    NoP NES: The "New Imperialism"



    Setting

    The world, 1880 C.E., the scramble for Africa begins, while across the world ancient civilizations are slowing becoming incorporated into new empires. In Asia, the French are setting their sites on Indo-China, while Britain and Russia battle it out in the Great Game, the competition for influence in central Asia. In Europe, the Alliance between the freshly unified German state and the old Hapsburg Empire threaten Russian interests in the Baltic, where the Ottoman Empire tries to hold it's grasp on it's remaining lands. France lost the Alsace-Lorraine in the Franco-Prussian war to Germany. Italy also unified itself, and is eager to find a place for itself in the alliances of Europe. In South America the War of the Pacific is raging, while the USA just finished “reconstruction”, and currently is an economic powerhouse. The second industrial revolution is underway throughout the Western Hemisphere and Europe, while small nations in the East and Africa need to modernize or be dominated.

    Introduction

    I am sure many of you are familiar of my former attempts at NESes. However I realized that the NESes which I almost only join (historical NESes from 1700-1950s), happen to be the ones I never make. So, to remedy that, here is an NES from one of my favorite times of history. I WILL try and be far more prompt with the updates, and should be better able to do so this year than former years, particularly cause I love writing stories, and this era has plenty. So, pretty much, as long as I get orders from most of the major players (UK, France, Germany, Russia, USA (might change as time goes on)) I WILL update. Also do to my affection to this time period and familiarity with it, I WILL spur on events if there is any slum (USS Maine, anyone?), however lets hope that their will be no need. Each turn will be 6 months, athough I might find a need to slow things down as time progresses.

    Spoiler List of Greviences :


    I believe that in the last couple of years, NESes have been increasingly loosing the "S". Stories are becoming less and less common, and the Mod has been increasingly filling the role of a PC, simply computing numbers for battles and national development. An NES is NOT a computer game, and the primary elements of it is to relatively accurately portray a nation. There will be no "winners" in this game, it is simply a modelling of the world in 1880s, which will hopefully diverge from actual history at some point in a responsible way, and hopefully also have fun in building an nice nation.

    Due to both the historical set up of this game, as well as my relatively through national descriptions, there should be no problem with remaining IC. Unless stated clearly in the Update, your nation is the same as it was at the time. So any questions regarding the nature of your state can be found on Wikipedia or any other resource available. Other than that, you have complete artistic licsense to do anything IC and reasonable to your nation as you wish.

    As such I will ignore anyone who continuoisly give orders like those that follow, "spend 2 ecos into education." Obviously short orders are better than no orders, but you should elaborate! Perticularly for projects I expect some level of effort and involvement in your descriptions.

    As for my original point about stories, I will not give anyone tangable rewards for stories, but I will look kindly on them, perticularly if they contain plans for your nation within them.


    Spoiler rules, rough but accurate :

    Stats

    Rules/Orders/Intro

    Pretty self explanatory to experienced players, some minor changes from the das-like standard rules. Most notably is I love projects with nice explanations. I discourage people from simply having orders like: “put all my money into improving infrastructure”. I prefer people to at least explain specifically what you plan to do, obviously though any orders are better than no orders.

    As you might notice these are fairly anorexic in size, simply because pretty much everyone is familiar with them, so I do not see a need to go into much depth. They are mostly based off the ones found here (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=244271).

    Stats: Template

    Country Name
    Government: Leaders
    Economy: (Base Economy/Eco centers/from colonies/total(Banked))
    Technology
    Army (mobilizable):
    Navy:
    Military Upkeep:
    Area:
    Population:

    Brief Summary:

    Government


    Different governments will have non-stat effects, including events and the like. I do not feel a perticular need to go into too much depth.
    Example: Monarchy, Constitutional Monarchy, Republic, Despotism, Facsist

    Leaders


    Who is in charge of the nation, in cases like the UK, where there is both a Monarch and Prime Minister, a slash will separate them and titles will be used to indicate which is which. I am afraid that for some of them I am unable to find online or in books who the leader is, and the space will be left blank (I appreciate it if anyone could help fill them in...).

    Economy

    Base Economy:
    What you get from the land...

    Economy Centers:
    These are where there is large amounts of trade or industry, which indicated higher economic potential. Although they can be created via projects, there needs to be a good reason behind them. Also if there is any massive shifts in political situations which would encourage trade or industry in a city, they can be created. Also military attacks or other random events could destroy them.

    Colonies/Other things:
    These are additional economic benefits to your nation, normally from colonies. More on this in the next sections.

    Total: Summation of above, subtract your military upkeep to know how much you have to spend per turn.

    Banked:
    This is the amount you have in your national coffers. Also it could reflect bonuses you get for particular things in your orders or random events.

    Technology


    What sort of technological level your nation is at on a whole. It primarily effects your military effectiveness, but also effects all other stats. Only through random events or projects can they be advanced.

    pre-industrial revolution, first industrial revolution, second industrial revolution

    Army

    Invade, defend, and perhaps other options I haven't considered. For simplicities sake there are only Infantry, Irregular and Cavalry divisions. However you can create some sort of new elite units via some other way (projects, stories). Costs show below,

    One Eco: (square root of Population, rounded up) Pop 1= 1 infantry division, Pop 2,3,4= 2 Infantry Division, Pop 5 = 3 infantry divisions
    One Eco: 1 Cavalry Division

    Navy

    A strong navy is crucial to the survival of any empire, and for the defense of any surviving states. Naval Vessels are defined as Capital Ships, which are massive ships such as Ships-Of-The-Line, and squadrons, which are collections of smaller ships, like corvettes and frigates, which are excellent in a defensive role, like protecting shipping. Obviously in any naval conflict is necessary to have both.

    One Eco: 1 Capital Ship (bombardment)
    One Eco: 1 Squadron (shipping defense)

    Mobilization


    For your treasure's sake you can put your troops into a reservist unit at any time. However it will take some time to mobilize them, so they will not take part in any sort of attack unless remobilized (takes one turn), but they will still defend the mainland to lesser effectiveness than active troops.

    Military upkeep


    No equation is used to determine this, and it depends on troop and ship deployments. For example, Germany has more divisions than Britain, but since British troops are deployed around the world, they have higher upkeep costs.

    Area


    Size of your nation/empire. Effects cost to improve infrastructure. Scale of 0-6

    Population

    Population in your nation/empire. Effects cost to improve education and living standards. Scale of 1-6

    Infrastructure


    Infrastructure will impact your economy slightly, as well as effectiveness of your military. Costs 2*area to increase by 1. Scale of 1-6

    Education

    Education will impact your economy slightly, as well as likelihood of age advancements. Costs 2*population to increase by 1. Scale of 1-6

    Living Standards


    Living Standards will impact your economy slightly, as well as have some effect on confidence. Costs 2*population to increase by 1. Scale of 1-6

    Confidence


    How well your people like you. Cannot be increased directly, but how in character your actions are and how well your people like you. An Ottoman Sultan announcing a conversion to Christianity, for instance, will surely decrease this.

    Civil War (0) – Adoring (6)

    Projects


    Projects are anything else you wish to improve (fortifications, new naval units, etc.), or a massive project to increase many stats at once. Their cost will be determined by their proposed effects, as well as how well you describe them (simply saying “improve life expectancy to 6” leaves much to be decided to local leaders who always love larger houses). PM me your suggestions, and I will analyze them and respond with a cost. Costs will use the “turn” units. To improve a project by N turns, you must invest 2(N)-1 ecos. See chart below:

    1 turn – 1 eco
    2 turns – 3 ecos
    3 turns – 5 ecos
    4 turns – 7 ecos
    10 turns – 19 ecos

    The reason for this you are, in a sense, rush completing the project. Doing so takes more monetary contributions.

    Colonies/Other Foreign Things of Importance


    Many nations around this time are empires, some of those have colonies or other areas somehow or other indebted to the mother nation (protectorates). In addition, countries have other sources of income (Suez canal).

    Colony Template:


    Name : Type : Base Income/Eco centers : Confidence : Army (Militia)

    Type

    Either really Colony or Protectorate.

    Economy

    Already described

    Confidence


    Confidence in colonies is very important as rebellions are common. Your policies in the colonies must reflect what the people their want if you wish to keep this high.

    Military

    This is the military your nation has stationed in the colony, it is NOT included in your Army Stats above.

    Milita

    Most colonies have some sort of native force in the region employed by the Empire. Generally this a good thing, as it lessens the strain on your military upkeep. However it can be a liability (Sepoy rebellion).

    Brief Summary


    I try to make this relatively through of your conditions. They will describe briefly your foreign relationships and the problems your nations face as well as your recent history. It is highly encouraged that you research your nation a little (at least read the wikipedia article...).

    Anything else feel free to contact me a variety of ways:

    PC stats

    Organized via continent then common name (the Manchu Empire is listed under "C" (China) not "M").

    Spoiler Europe :


    Austro-Hungarian Empire/ Hapsburg Empire
    Monarchy: Franz Josef I
    Economy: (8/5/0/13(2))
    Technology: Second Industrial Revolution
    Army (mobilizable): 40 infantry divisions, 25 calvary divisions (32 infantry divisions)
    Navy: 6 capital ships, 12 squadrons
    Military Upkeep: 3
    Area: 4
    Population 4
    Infrastructure: 3
    Education: 4
    Living Standards: 3
    Confidence: relatively high (4)
    Projects: Project Modernisierung (+2 Base Economy, +1 Infrastructure) (2/15)
    Brief Summary: The Hapsburg Empire has almost never been so strong both economically and politically. Recently entering in with an alliance with Germany, they form a powerful political block, dominating Central Europe. Also they were able to successfully lead a campaign in the Congress of Berlin to reduce Russian gains in the Balkans, creating a mostly independent Romania. Still Russia is a very dominating force in the region, and the Hapsburg wish to lessen Russia's influence as much as possible, while Austro-Hungary sets it's ambitions to the south.

    Bulgaria
    Monarchy: Alexander von Battenberg
    Economy: (3/1/0/4(2))
    Technology: first industrial revolution
    Army (mobilizable): 32 infantry divisions, 8 cavalry divisions
    Navy: 1 squadron
    Military Upkeep: 2
    Area: 1
    Population: 2
    Infrastructure: 3
    Education: 3
    Living Standards: 3
    Confidence: relatively high (3)
    Projects: Technology (+1 Technology Level, +1 Education) (3/6), The Sofia to Varna Railroad (+1 Infrastructure, +1 Base Economy) (2/6)
    Brief Summary: One of the newest nations on the European Stage, Bulgaria was a product of Russia's war with the Ottoman Empire, and the subsequent Treaty of San Stefano. In this treaty, a massive Bulgarian state was envisioned containing much of Ottoman Balkan's holdings. However the Great Powers, particularly Austro-Hungary and the UK, were worried about the expanding Russian influence in the area. The Treaty of Berlin established a much smaller Bulgarian state, as well as an semi autonomous provence below it, Eastern Rumelia. The Bulgarian government is very keen on establishing it's control over greater Bulgaria, and pitting itself verses the Ottoman Empire, and, to a lesser extent, Serbia.

    Denmark
    Monarchy: Salvador Casañas i Pagés /Jules Grévy
    Economy: 3/1/1/5(2)
    Technology: Second Industrial Revolution
    Army (Mobilizable): 4 infantry divisions (8 infantry divisions)
    Navy: 3 capital ships, 12 squadrons
    Military Upkeep: 2
    Area: 2
    Population: 2
    Infrastructure: 4
    Education: 5
    Living Standards: 4
    Confidence: very high (4)
    Colonies:
    Iceland : Territory : 1/0/1 : Adoring : 2 infantry divisions (3 infantry divisions)
    Greenland : Territory : 0/0/0 : Adoring : 1 infantry divisions
    Papa New Guinea : Colony : 1/0/1 : relatively low : 3 infantry divisions
    National Background: Denmark lost the Schleswig-Holstein in 1866 to Germany, and have been wanting them back since. Currently it has poor relations with Germany, and strengthening economic and political ties to the UK and France.

    French Republic
    Republic:
    Economy: (7/7/6/21(0))
    Technology: second industrial revolution
    Army (mobilizable): 35 infantry divisions, 21 cavalry divisions, (46 infantry divisions)
    Navy: 10 capital ships, 40 sqaudrons
    Military Upkeep: 5
    Area: 3
    Population: 4
    Infrastructure: 5 (4/6)
    Education: 4 (4/8)
    Living Standards: 4
    Confidence: relatively low (2)
    Colonies:
    Algeria : Colony : 1/1/2 : relatively low : 5 infantry divisions ( 1 infantry division)
    Senegal : Colony : 1/0/1 : relatively low : 3 infantry divisions
    Ivory Coast : Colony : 1/0/1 : relatively low : 3 infantry divisions
    Cotonou : Colony : 0/0/0 : relatively low : 3 infantry divisions
    Gabon : Colony : 1/0/1 : very low : 3 infantry divisions
    Cambodia and Cochin China : Colony : 2/0/2 : relatively low : 4 infantry divisions ( 5 infantry divisions)
    French Guiana : Colony : 1/0/1 : relatively high : 3 infantry divisions
    French Arabia: Colony : 1/0/1 : relatively low : 3 infantry divisions
    Projects: none
    Brief Summary: Despite military defeats in the Franco-Prussian War, as well as late industrialization, France is showing itself to be a major world power. Although not as strong as it's neighbors to the North and East, France has much potential in the modern age. It's colonies in Algeria and Senegal are starting to pay off, and it's capture of Cambodia and Cochin China are cashing in. France is still bitter over the war with Germany, and has relatively poor relations with much of Europe. Competition is mounting between France and England over colonization, which may lead to direct conflict. But they are far more worried about unified Germany to the East, who's pact with Austria-Hungary worries them.

    German Empire
    Constitutional Monarchy: William I
    Economy: (11/10/2/23(5))
    Technology: Second Industrial Revolution
    Army (mobilizable): 30 infantry divisions, 15 cavalry divisions (68 infantry divisions, 10 cavalry division)
    Navy: 18 capital ships, 47 squadrons
    Military Upkeep: 5
    Area: 3
    Population: 4
    Infrastructure: 5
    Education: 5
    Living Standards: 4
    Confidence: very high (4)
    Projects: Investment (Base Economy +2, +1 Hannover EC) (6/14), Kleindeutschland (+1 Confidence, +1 Living Standards, +1 Education) (3/10)
    Colonies:
    Benin : Colony : 2/0/2 : relatively low : 8 divisions
    Nambia: Colony : 0/0/0 : relatively low : 4 divisions
    West Africa: Colony : relatively low : 4 divisions
    Brief Summary: The freshly unified German Empire has shown itself to be perhaps the most powerful on mainland Europe, commanding the highest economy and strongest military. They were the first nation to start the “second industrial revolution” and are leading Industry in Europe. Also they had a decisive victory in the Franco-Prussian War in 1871, and had a large economic boost from reparation payments (their current banked ecos). Allied with Austro-Hungary in the Dual Alliance, they form a powerful political block that dominates much of Europe, only really checked by the UK and Russia.

    Kingdom of Greece
    Monarchy: George I
    Economy: 3/0/0/3(0)
    Technology: Second Industrial Revolution
    Army (Mobilizable): 19 infantry divisions
    Navy: 2 capital ships, 3 squadrons
    Military Upkeep: 1
    Area: 2
    Population: 2
    Infrastructure: 3
    Education: 3
    Living Standards: 3 (2/4)
    Confidence: relatively low (2)
    Projects: Mediterranean Trade Project (+1 EC at Athens, +1 Infrastructure) (1/6)
    National Background: Greece separated from the Ottoman Empire officially in 1829. It has good relations with France and England, but relations with the Ottoman Empire are poor at best and there is much contention over the Aegean Islands while to the north there are border disputes. Greece is also eager to institute of Megila Idea, which would essentially found a new Byzantine Empire, centered at Constantinople. They have joined the Balkan League, embarking in a struggle against the Ottoman Empire.

    Kingdom of Italy
    Constitutional Monarchy: King Umberto I
    Economy: (3/5/3/11(0))
    Technology: Second Industrial Revolution
    Army (mobilizable): 14 infantry divisions, 5 cavalry divisions (30 infantry divisions, 5 cavalry division)
    Navy: 7 capital ships, 13 sqaudrons
    Military Upkeep: 3
    Area: 2
    Population: 3
    Infrastructure: 3
    Education: 4
    Living Standards: 3
    Confidence: relatively high (3)
    Projects: Turin (+1 EC at Turin) (Completed) Congo (+2 confidence, + Economic Center at Vittorio, +Rubber Industry, +Diamond Industry) (2/15)
    Colonies:
    Congo : Colony : 2/0/2 : relatively low : 4 infantry divisions
    Sabbia Bianca : Colony : 1/0/1 : relatively low : 2 divisions
    Brief Summary: The unified Italian state has not faired as well as it's northern counterpart Germany. Although it has some influence and power, Italy is better known for it's corruption around this time, know as the “liberal period,” despite the authoritarian policies of Rome. However the education system has thrived, as primary education is free and compulsory. Italy has ambitions for a colonial empire in North Africa, bringing it in conflict with France and the aging Ottoman Empire. It has also begun a colonial campaign into the Congo, which is so well funded that it is already producing tangable results.

    Kingdom of the Netherlands
    Constitutional Monarchy:
    Economy: (2/3/4/9(1))
    Technology: Second Industrial Revolution
    Army (mobilizable): 7 infantry divisions, (5 infantry divisions, 6 cavalry division)
    Navy: 4 capital ships, 12 squadrons
    Military Upkeep: 2
    Area: 1
    Population: 2
    Infrastructure: 5
    Education: 5
    Living Standards: 4
    Confidence: relatively high (3)
    Colonies:
    Dutch East Indies: Colony: 2/0/2: relatively low: 6 infantry divisions (2 infantry divisions))
    Dutch Guiana: Colony: 1/0/1: relatively low: 1 infantry divisions (0)
    Madagascar: Colony : 1/0/1 : relatively low: 3 infantry divisions
    Projects: none
    Brief Summary: Although Netherlands lost it's lucrative Cape Colony in 1788, it continues to have good trade in the Dutch East Indies. However revolts in northern Sumatra (Aceh) worry leaders.

    Principality of Serbia
    Monarchy: Milan Obrenović
    Economy: 2/0/0/2(0)
    Technology: Second Industrial Revolution
    Army (Mobilizable): 24 infantry divisions
    Navy: none
    Military Upkeep: 1
    Area: 2
    Population: 2
    Infrastructure: 3
    Education: 2
    Living Standards: 2
    Confidence: very high (4)
    Projects: Railroads (+ Belgrade EC, +1 Base Economy, +1 infrastructure) (2/8)
    National Background: Separating from the Ottoman Empire in 1817, it is one of the most powerful Slavic states, pitting itself against the Ottoman Empire. Currently there is an unpopular pro-Austrian king on the throne. They have joined the Balkan League and they are embarking on a so far successful campaign against the Ottoman Empire.

    Spanish Empire
    Monarchy: Alfonso XII
    Economy: (3/4/5/13(2))
    Technology: second industrial revolution
    Army (mobilizable): 15 infantry divisions, 5 cavalry divisions, (10 infantry divisions)
    Navy: 8 capital ships, 18 squadrons
    Military Upkeep: 3
    Area: 3
    Population: 3
    Infrastructure: 4
    Education: 3
    Living Standards: 3
    Confidence: relatively high (3)
    Colonies:
    Spanish Guinea : Colony : 0/0/0 : relatively low : 5 infantry divisions ( 1 infantry division)
    Puerto Rico : Colony : 1/0/1 : relatively low : 4 infantry divisions (5 infantry divisions)
    Cuba : Colony : 1/1/2 : very low : 10 infantry divisions (2 infantry divisions)
    Philippines : Colony : 1/1/2 : relatively low : 5 infantry divisions (10 infantry divisions)
    Guam : Colony : 0/0/0 : relatively high : 2 infantry divisions
    Projects: none
    Brief Summary: After the Spanish Empire's decline in the early 19th century, most notably the loss of most of her colonies in the New World, Spain was rocked by a number of revolutions as well as civil wars. However now the mainland has settled with a new ruler, Alfonso XII, who seems to be bringing economic and political reform. But still the remaining colonies grow increasingly revolutionary. Continuous insurrections in Cuba, and occasionally the Philippines, forcer there to be a large troop presence on both those islands, straining the treasury. It has friendly relations with France, and strained relations with both the UK and Germany.

    Russian Empire
    Monarchy: Alexander II
    Economy: (7/9/0/16(3))
    Technology: Second Industrial Revolution
    Army (mobilizable): 63 infantry divisions, 24 cavalry divisions (34 infantry divisions, 15 cavalry division)
    Navy: 10 capital ships, 23 squadrons
    Military Upkeep: 4
    Area: 6
    Population: 5
    Infrastructure: 1
    Education: 4
    Living Standards: 2
    Confidence: relatively low (2)
    Projects: Trans Siberian Railroad (+5 Base Eco, +2 Infrastructure) (4/20)
    Brief Summary: Russia dealt a quick blow to the Ottoman Empire with the Treaty of San Stefano, gaining much of the Caucus Region, however their gains in the Balkans were below expectations, due to the Congress of Berlin. They still want to gain control of the Bosporus Straits. Tsar Alexander II famously liberated the Serf Population 20 years ago, but there is still displeasure amongst minority nationalities and the lower classes, and Russia is becoming forced to adopt some pretty authoritarian measures to quell revolutionaries and secret societies.

    Swiss Confederacy
    Direct Democracy/Federal Parliamentary Republic:
    Economy: (4/2/0/6(4))
    Technology: Second Industrial Revolution
    Army (Mobilizable): 3 infantry divisions (64 infantry divisions)
    Navy: None
    Military Upkeep: 1
    Area: 2
    Population: 3
    Infrastructure: 4
    Education: 6
    Living Standards: 6
    Confidence: "have our babies!" (7)
    National Background: Switzerland is the famous neutral state of Europe. Tucked up in the Alps, while having it's entire nation able to be called up for military service, which is specialized in the mountain warfare, if conflict does erupt. It has no political relations, but does have strong economic ties to France and Austria, and, to a lesser extent, Germany.

    United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland
    Parliamentary Monarchy: Benjamin Disraeli/ Queen Victoria
    Economy: (8/8/21/37(4))
    Technology: second industrial revolution
    Army (mobilizable): 9 infantry divisions, 15 cavalry divisions, (54 infantry divisions)
    Navy: 23 capital ships, 65 squadrons
    Military Upkeep: 11
    Area: 5
    Population: 5
    Infrastructure: 6
    Education: 6
    Living Standards: 5

    Projects: Royal Department of Industry, Transportation, and Trade (+1 economy in UK, Cape Colony, India, Australia) (3/12)
    Brief Summary: Commanding an impressive colonial empire, with a massive navy to boot, the UK is currently the world's main super-power. Although checked in influence in Europe by Germany and Russia, they remain unchallenged in the rest of the world, slowly assimilating small nations and empires into protectorates. In Africa many colonies are sprouting and might soon turn profitable, ,while in Central Asia and Persia a dangerous Game is being played with Russia for influence. Most notable result of this competition is increasing ties with the Ottoman Empire, who lend support for them during the Congress of Berlin to make a more favorable Balkan situation, while giving them Cyprus in return. However resistance in Afghanistan and in South Africa weaken this hegamonial power, particularly distressing domestic politics.

Loosing much of it's Balkans and North African holdings, the Ottoman empire faces increasing financial troubles, and has been forced to loan from banks. Despite this, France and England have found themselves allying with the Ottoman Empire, helping it secure favorable terms in the Treaty of Berlin in 1878, although in exchange for Cyprus. the main enemy to the Ottoman Empire is Russia, who wishes to secure the Bosporus Straits, exactly what England does not want to happen, as it will be attacking their dominating control of the Mediterranean, and to a lesser extent the Balkans, where their territory is slowly being whittled away. The Ottoman Empire, although appreciative of British support, doesn't like to be seen as a second rate power, and is trying to ally with Germany.

    Brief Summary: USA, although an economic powerhouse, is relatively un-involved with foreign politics, except those in the Americas, as dictated by the Monroe Doctrine. However, whether they continue this isolationist policy is uncertian. Mostly they have been introspective, placing their economic power in internal developments. Many internal problems remain, particularly among the working class, as shown in the Great Railroad Strike of 1877. Many industrialists fear that this would destabilize the nation, but their fears seem unwarranted. They currently have unrivaled economic prosperity and their “Manifest Destiny” seems to be fulfilled, for the moment.
