Alright everyone, I hope you watch the news because I'm not taking the time out of my day to describe the status of the real world to you. Have any questions? Google it. Anyway, this is a real world, modern RP set January 1st, 2014. It's a nationbased RP, you can play as any nation, recognized or unrecognized, as long as it has actual territory. I'll consider letting people be non-national entities such as Al Qaeda, but it will take a lot of ass kissing.

I'd expect you all to know the rules by now but just be sure, I'll lay them down for you.
Don't Godmode, Metagame, Flame, Troll, break regular forum rules or in general be a tit

Bujahla is in charge of the Associated Press. He is responsible for the occurrence of random events. If something involves you and you don't like it, don't bitch.

I'd like a more fleshed out Military, Government and Economy. I don't want to just see numbers, how well are they equipped, trained? How many ships? And for the government and economy, don't just tell me the name of the system, how does it function? What is the economy actually like? How does government really function in Russia?

I don't mean to be a hardass but for a nation as important as Russia I need a really good app.

AH, PMT, some FT.


Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded ultra-progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a journalist. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.
Your attitudes towards economics appear neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a liberal.
To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a considerate idealistic egalitarian with many strong convictions.

Your population is almost 200 million too high, Barrack Obama's name is spelled wrong, Joe Biden is your head of government, there is very little description of your government or economy, and while your military isn't just numbers, I find it in want if you plan on being the US.

It's not looking too good I'm afraid.

By the way guys, I've added a few new categories to the app, one for military stuff not included in Army, Navy or Airforce, one for foreign affairs and one for the current state of the nation.

Army:50 600 total personnel-Canada is an industrial nation with a highly developed science and technology sector. Since the First World War, Canada has produced its own infantry fighting vehicle, anti-tank guided missile and small arms for the Army. Regular and reserve units operate state-of-the-art equipment able to handle modern threats through 2030–2035. Despite extensive financial cuts to the defence budget between 1960s–2000s, the Army is relatively well equipped.[18] The Army currently operates approximately 10,500 utility vehicles including G-wagon and 7000-MV and also operates approximately 2,700 armoured fighting vehicles including the LAV-III and the Leopard 2.[19] The Army also operates approximately 150 field artillery pieces including the M777 howitzer and the LG1 Mark II.[20]

In the near future, between 2011 to 2017, (see also the list of Future Canadian Forces projects), the Army will receive a new family of tactical armoured patrol vehicles which will eventually replace the RG-31 Nyala and Coyote Reconnaissance Vehicle, known as the Textron Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle.[21] The dismounted soldiers will be equipped with the long-awaited Integrated Soldier System designed to improve command execution, target acquisition and situational awareness. The Army will receive a new family of engineering vehicles especially designed to clear pathways for troops and other vehicles through minefields and along roadside bombs and improvised explosive devices. This new family of vehicles will eventually replace the aging fleet of AEV Badger, ARV Taurus and AVLB Beaver.

The Army infantry uses the C7 Rifle or C8 Carbine as the basic assault rifle, with grenadiers using the C7 with an attached M203 grenade launcher, and the C9 squad automatic weapon.[22]

Newer variants of the C7/C8 family have since been integrated into common use throughout the Canadian Armed Forces. The C7 has most recently been updated in the form the C7A2. The major internal components remain the same, however, several changes have been made to increase versatility of the rifle. Changes include adding a TRI-Ad rail mount system to the front iron sight which allows accessories such as laser designators and tac lights to be added. Also, the fire control selector lever has been made ambidextrous in addition to the cocking lever. A much needed 4-position telescopic butt-stock has been added to better accommodate different sized shooters. But, perhaps most obviously the rifle has undergone some aesthetic changes, moving away from the traditional all black rifle to one with olive green in the hand guards, pistol grip and sight cover.[23]

Navy:8,500 regular personnel
5,100 reserve personnel -The Royal Canadian Navy's Atlantic Fleet, known as Maritime Forces Atlantic (MARLANT), is headquartered and homeported at CFB Halifax in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It is supported by CFS St. John's in Newfoundland. Attached to MARLANT and CFB Halifax is the Royal Canadian Air Force's 12 Wing Shearwater, based at Shearwater Heliport, which provides shipborne air support for the Atlantic Fleet. The RCAF's 14 Wing Greenwood provides fixed-wing air support for MARLANT through 404 Maritime Patrol and Training Squadron and 405 Maritime Patrol Squadron. Other Atlantic Fleet facilities are CFAD Bedford, an ammunition depot, and two radio stations, Naval Radio Section (NRS) Newport Corner and NRS Mill Cove.

The Atlantic Fleet, with 18 warships and a number of auxiliary vessels, is responsible for Canada's Exclusive Economic Zone on the East Coast, as well as Canada's Area of Responsibility in the Atlantic Ocean and the eastern Arctic Ocean.

Maritime Forces Pacific

The Royal Canadian Navy's Pacific Fleet, known as Maritime Forces Pacific (MARPAC), is headquartered at CFB Esquimalt in British Columbia, in the Greater Victoria region. MARPAC consists of over 4,000 naval personnel and 2,000 civilian personnel.[a 4]

Comprising 15 warships and several auxiliary vessels homeported in Esquimalt, the Pacific Fleet is responsible for Canada' Exclusive Economic Zone on the West Coast and Canada's Area of Responsibility in the Pacific Ocean and the western Arctic Ocean. Fleet Naval Facility Cape Breton provides repair and maintenance services to the Pacific Fleet. The Royal Canadian Air Force's 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron, based at Patricia Bay Heliport but under the control of 12 Wing Shearwater, provides shipborne helicopter support for the Pacific Fleet, while 19 Wing Comox provides fixed wing maritime air support for MARPAC through 407 Long Range Patrol Squadron.

Reserve

The Naval Reserve Headquarters (NAVRESHQ), located at the Pointe-a-Carcy Naval Complex in Quebec City, is responsible for twenty four Naval Reserve Divisions across the country. The base is also home to Canadian Forces Fleet School Quebec and HMCS Montcalm. The Naval Reserve is composed of 4,000 reservists.[a 5]

Fleet
Fleet of the Royal Canadian Navy

HMCS Algonquin, a guided-missile destroyer
The Navy operates 15 warships, 2 support tankers, a dozen minesweepers, eight patrol-trainers and 4 submarines. The surface ships, which carry the designation Her Majesty's Canadian Ship (HMCS), consist of three Iroquois class guided-missile destroyers, twelve Halifax class multi-role patrol frigates, 12 Kingston class coastal defence vessels, and two Protecteur class replenishment vessels. In addition to the surface vessels, the RCN owns four Victoria class submarines that were acquired from the British Royal Navy in 1998. These warships carry the designation Her Majesty's Canadian Submarine. The Royal Canadian Navy also maintains and operates HMCS Oriole, a historic sailing ship commissioned in 1921 as a sail training ship. Oriole is the oldest commissioned ship in the RCN and carries the royal designation and the battle honour Dunkirk, 1940.

Auxiliary vessels[edit]

The RCN operates auxiliary vessels to support the Canadian Forces, these vessels are not warships and do not carry the HMCS designation. Among the auxiliary ships operated by the Navy are eight Orca-class patrol class training tenders, five Ville class harbour tugs, five Glen-class harbour tugs and two fireboats of the Fire class.

Aircraft[edit]

Since 1975, all aircraft supporting the RCN are operated by the Royal Canadian Air Force through 1 Canadian Air Division. Since 1995, all CH-124 Sea King helicopters have been operated by squadrons under 12 Wing (from the Shearwater Heliport and Patricia Bay Heliport). Similarly, all CP-140 Aurora and CP-140A Arcturus anti-submarine, ship surveillance and maritime patrol aircraft have been operated by squadrons under 14 Wing at CFB Greenwood and 19 Wing at CFB Comox. There are currently 27 CH-124 Sea King helicopters configured for ship-borne anti-submarine warfare, 18 CP-140 Aurora fixed wing aircraft for land-based anti-submarine warfare and area surveillance, and 1 CP-140A Arcturus for land-based maritime surveillance.


Describe the Government system:Canada has a parliamentary system within the context of a constitutional monarchy, the monarchy of Canada being the foundation of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches.[95][96][97][98] The sovereign is Queen Elizabeth II, who also serves as head of state of 15 other Commonwealth countries and each of Canada's ten provinces. As such, the Queen's representative, the Governor General of Canada (at present David Lloyd Johnston), carries out most of the federal royal duties in Canada.[99][100]

The direct participation of the royal and viceroyal figures in areas of governance is limited.[97][101][102] In practice, their use of the executive powers is directed by the Cabinet, a committee of ministers of the Crown responsible to the elected House of Commons and chosen and headed by the Prime Minister of Canada (at present Stephen Harper),[103] the head of government. The governor general or monarch may, though, in certain crisis situations exercise their power without ministerial advice.[101] To ensure the stability of government, the governor general will usually appoint as prime minister the person who is the current leader of the political party that can obtain the confidence of a plurality in the House of Commons.[104] The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) is thus one of the most powerful institutions in government, initiating most legislation for parliamentary approval and selecting for appointment by the Crown, besides the aforementioned, the governor general, lieutenant governors, senators, federal court judges, and heads of Crown corporations and government agencies.[101] The leader of the party with the second-most seats usually becomes the Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition (presently Thomas Mulcair) and is part of an adversarial parliamentary system intended to keep the government in check.[105]

The Senate chamber within the Centre Block on Parliament Hill
Each of the 308 members of parliament in the House of Commons is elected by simple plurality in an electoral district or riding. General elections must be called by the governor general, either on the advice of the prime minister, within four years of the previous election, or if the government loses a confidence vote in the House.[106] The 105 members of the Senate, whose seats are apportioned on a regional basis, serve until age 75.[107] Five parties had representatives elected to the federal parliament in the 2011 elections: the Conservative Party of Canada (governing party), the New Democratic Party (the Official Opposition), the Liberal Party of Canada, the Bloc Québécois, and the Green Party of Canada. The list of historical parties with elected representation is substantial.

Canada's federal structure divides government responsibilities between the federal government and the ten provinces. Provincial legislatures are unicameral and operate in parliamentary fashion similar to the House of Commons.[102] Canada's three territories also have legislatures, but these are not sovereign and have fewer constitutional responsibilities than the provinces.[108] The territorial legislatures also differ structurally from their provincial counterparts.[109]

Describe the economy:The Bank of Canada is the central bank of the country and governed by Stephen Poloz. In addition, the Minister of Finance and Ministry of Industry utilize the Statistics Canada system for financial planning. The Toronto Stock Exchange is the seventh largest exchange in the world having 1,577 companies listed in 2012. Canada is the world's eleventh-largest economy, with a 2012 nominal GDP of approximately US$1.82 trillion.[6] It is a member of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the G8, and is one of the world's top ten trading nations, with a highly globalized economy.[137][138] Canada is a mixed economy, ranking above the US and most western European nations on the Heritage Foundation's index of economic freedom,[139] and experiencing a relatively low level of income disparity.[140] In 2008, Canada's imported goods were worth over $442.9 billion, of which $280.8 billion originated from the United States, $11.7 billion from Japan, and $11.3 billion from the United Kingdom.[141] The country's 2009 trade deficit totalled C$4.8 billion, compared with a C$46.9 billion surplus in 2008.[142]

Since the early 20th century, the growth of Canada's manufacturing, mining, and service sectors has transformed the nation from a largely rural economy to an urbanized, industrial one. Like many other developed nations, the Canadian economy is dominated by the service industry, which employs about three-quarters of the country's workforce.[143] However, Canada is unusual among developed countries in the importance of its primary sector, in which the logging and petroleum industries are two of the most prominent components.[144]

Canada is one of the few developed nations that are net exporters of energy.[145] Atlantic Canada possesses vast offshore deposits of natural gas, and Alberta also hosts large oil and gas resources. The vastness of the Athabasca oil sands and other assets results in Canada having 13% of the global oil reserves, the world's third-largest, after Venezuela and Saudi Arabia.[146] Canada is additionally one of the world's largest suppliers of agricultural products; the Canadian Prairies are one of the most important global producers of wheat, canola, and other grains.[147] The Ministry of Natural Resources in Canada provides statistics regarding their major exports, zinc and uranium, and is a leading exporter of many other minerals, such as gold, nickel, aluminum, steel, iron ore, Coking Coal, and lead.[145][148][149] Many towns in northern Canada, where agriculture is difficult, are sustainable because of nearby mines or sources of timber. Canada also has a sizeable manufacturing sector centred in southern Ontario and Quebec, with automobiles and aeronautics representing particularly important industries.[150]





Representatives of the governments of Canada, Mexico, and the United States sign the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1992.
Canada's economic integration with the United States has increased significantly since World War II. The Automotive Products Trade Agreement of 1965 opened Canada's borders to trade in the automobile manufacturing industry. In the 1970s, concerns over energy self-sufficiency and foreign ownership in the manufacturing sectors prompted Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau's Liberal government to enact the National Energy Program (NEP) and the Foreign Investment Review Agency (FIRA).[151] In the 1980s, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney's Progressive Conservatives abolished the NEP and changed the name of FIRA to "Investment Canada", to encourage foreign investment.[152] The Canada – United States Free Trade Agreement (FTA) of 1988 eliminated tariffs between the two countries, while the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) expanded the free-trade zone to include Mexico in 1994.[147] In the mid-1990s, Jean Chrétien's Liberal government began to post annual budgetary surpluses, and steadily paid down the national debt.[153]

The global financial crisis of 2008 caused a major recession, which led to a significant rise in unemployment in Canada.[154] By October 2009, Canada's national unemployment rate had reached 8.6 percent, with provincial unemployment rates varying from a low of 5.8 percent in Manitoba to a high of 17 percent in Newfoundland and Labrador.[155] Between October 2008 and October 2010, the Canadian labour market lost 162,000 full-time jobs and a total of 224,000 permanent jobs.[156] Canada's federal debt was estimated to total $566.7 billion for the fiscal year 2010–11, up from $463.7 billion in 2008–09.[157] In addition, Canada's net foreign debt rose by $41 billion to $194 billion in the first quarter of 2010.[158] However, Canada's regulated banking sector (comparatively conservative among G8 nations), the federal government's pre-crisis budgetary surpluses, and its long-term policies of lowering the national debt, resulted in a less severe recession compared to other G8 nations.[159] As of 2013, the majority of the Canadian economy has stabilized, although the country remains troubled by slow growth, sensitivity to the Eurozone crisis and higher-than-normal unemployment rates.[6][160][161][162][163] The federal government and many Canadian industries have also started to expand trade with emerging Asian markets, in an attempt to diversify exports; in 2011, Asia was Canada's second-largest export market, after the United States.[164][165] Widely debated oil pipeline proposals, in particular, are hoped to increase exports of Canadian oil reserves to China.[166][167]

Science and technology

In 2011, Canada spent approximately C$29.9 billion on domestic research and development.[168] As of 2012, the country has produced fourteen Nobel laureates in physics, chemistry and medicine,[169] and was ranked fourth worldwide for scientific research quality in a major 2012 survey of international scientists.[170] It is additionally home to a number of global technology firms.[171] Canada ranks seventeenth in the world for Internet users as a proportion of the population, with over 28.4 million users, equivalent to around 83 percent of its total 2012 population.[172]

The Canadian Space Agency operates a highly active space program, conducting deep-space, planetary, and aviation research, and developing rockets and satellites. Canada was the third country to launch a satellite into space after the USSR and the United States, with the 1962 Alouette 1 launch.[173] In 1984, Marc Garneau became Canada's first astronaut. As of 2013, nine Canadians have flown into space, over the course of fifteen manned missions.[174]

Canada is a participant in the International Space Station (ISS), and is a pioneer in space robotics, having constructed the Canadarm, Canadarm2 and Dextre robotic manipulators for the ISS and NASA's Space Shuttle. Since the 1960s, Canada's aerospace industry has designed and built numerous marques of satellite, including Radarsat-1 and 2, ISIS and MOST.[175] Canada has also produced a successful and widely used sounding rocket, the Black Brant; over 1,000 Black Brants have been launched since the rocket's introduction in 1961.[176]

After some research that probably got me on the NSA watchlist, here you go.

Official Name of Group: Al-Qaeda
Population estimate: ~30,000 total operatives.
Head of State: Non-existent.
Head of Government: See above, cells are autonomous.
Capital City: N/A

A brief rundown of the military
Army: ~25,000 fighters spread out around the world, mostly in the middle east and especially in Syria and the Maghreb. Compared to western troops they are outmatched, but this advantage is nullified by the years of experience most operatives have in asymmetrical warfare and their zeal. A few cells have armor units, mostly in Syria/Iraq.
Air Force: N/A
Navy: N/A
Anything else? Near suicidal zeal in certain operatives. Looking to acquire and kind of WMD, especially nuclear and chemical weapons.

Describe the Government system: Al-Qaeda's management philosophy has been described as "centralization of decision and decentralization of execution." It is thought that Al-Qaeda's leadership, following the War on Terror, has become geographically isolated, leading to the emergence of decentralized leadership of regional groups using the al-Qaeda "brand". Al-Qaeda's network was built from scratch as a conspiratorial network that draws on leaders of all its regional nodes "as and when necessary to serve as an integral part of its high command."
The Military Committee is responsible for training operatives, acquiring weapons, and planning attacks.
The Money/Business Committee funds the recruitment and training of operatives through the hawala banking system. U.S-led efforts to eradicate the sources of terrorist financing were most successful in the year immediately following the September 11 attacks; al-Qaeda continues to operate through unregulated banks, such as the 1,000 or so hawaladars in Pakistan, some of which can handle deals of up to $10 million. It also provides air tickets and false passports, pays al-Qaeda members, and oversees profit-driven businesses. In the 9/11 Commission Report, it was estimated that al-Qaeda required $30 million-per-year to conduct its operations.
The Law Committee reviews Sharia law, and decides whether particular courses of action conform to it.

Describe the economy: N/A
Describe the state of Foreign Affairs: Anti-Western, Pro-Islam, mostly managed through affiliate branches.

Al-Qaeda has the following direct affiliates:
Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb
Al-Shabaab (Mujahideen Youth Movement) in Somalia
Egyptian Islamic Jihad
Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which comprises
Al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia, and
Islamic Jihad of Yemen
Al-Nusra Front

Al-Qaeda has the following indirect affiliates:
Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant
East Turkestan Islamic Movement
Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan
Taliban
Caucasus Emirate
Fatah al-Islam
Lashkar-e-Taiba
Jaish-e-Mohammed
Jemaah Islamiyah
Abu Sayyaf
Rajah Sulaiman movement
Islamic Jihad Union
Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa
Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group
Al-Qaeda Kurdish Battalions


Describe the state of the nation internally: (Just how it's doing in general, basically) It's a decentralized terrorist organization reeling from losing most of it's direct leadership, but it's continuing decentralization allows for it to truly never be fully killed until the last Operative dies.
Any additional notes: It's very hard to find information on such an organization. Hope this okay.

Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded ultra-progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a journalist. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.
Your attitudes towards economics appear neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a liberal.
To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a considerate idealistic egalitarian with many strong convictions.

Official Name of Nation: Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela
Population estimate 29,000,000:
Head of State: President Nicolas Maduro
Head of Government: Vice President Jorge Arreaza
Capital City: Caracas

A brief rundown of the military
It is composed of ground forces, air and sea. It has a traditional Presidential Guard and a Republican Guard. 2nd strongest in Latin America, is looking to start its own weapons industry in a mass self sufficiency campaign. Venezuela is hoping to surpass Brazil and detur its rising in influence in the continent.
Army: 350,000 active. 600,000 reserve
Air Force: 97,000 453 aircraft
Navy: 56,000 12 frigates, 9 warships, 8 submarines, 27 gunboats, 34 coastal craft
Anything else? (Nukes, Chemical Weapons, Missiles, anything that doesn't fit in the other ones) It is rumored that while maintaining friendly relations with Western outcasts such as North Korea and Iran that Venezuela has stockpiled some chemical missiles in defense from the US and other western powers under Hugo Chavez's rule.

Describe the Government system: Essentially a Presidential Dictatorship, but officially a Federal Presidential Constitutional Republic
Describe the economy: Venezuela relies heavily on petrol exports and has developed its economic base around that, its biggest buyers ironically are Western nations. Is oil fields have increased its output in recent years and massive energy reforms have developed more gas fields. Its gas and oil reserves have not dwindled yet but analysts say at the rate Venezuela is pumping it should start dwindling in the next 10-15 years. Venezuela has taken a friendly veneer in recent years by expanding its tourist industry which is both state and privately owned. Its natural beauty is luscious and thriving on the coast but in the center of the country is being demolished due to gas fields being developed. It agriculture is the 3rd largest economic center with a variety of tropical fruits, fish, and cattle. Venezuela is under state capitalism but Hugo Chavez liberalized his economic approach and in 2009 allowed more foreign investment and free trade. Its annual GDP is 390 billion and 12k per captia.
Describe the state of Foreign Affairs: Venezuela although having rocky relations with the US enjoys rather neutral relations with it. It has a knack for siding with its adversaries most of the time, especially with North Korea and Iran. A war of words however heightened the tensions. It trades with France and the UK but who still denounce the country at times and tends to side with the US on most issues. Venezuela knows it is a place of high advantages and disadvantages. It could easily cripple the US's energy economy but risk severe retaliation from the West
Describe the state of the nation internally: (Just how it's doing in general, basically) Ever since Chavez's death the populace, mainly military, have not enjoyed his successor's rule. Internal discord and resentment grow, mainly the grievance lies in the inefficiency of the current leader and his increase in corruption of the bureaucracy. They enjoy relatively good fiscal success but does not approve of the current leaders job of running the nation.
Any additional notes: There might be a coup ;)

Photana, if you can justify the amount of operatives, you're accepted. I'm seeing articles which would give you in total, tens of thousands, not hundreds of thousands.

Bolovia, all good except your military. According to my research you have 155,000 active personnel, 787,000 reserves. You have 389 aircraft, 130 of which are helicopters. 6 frigates, 4 corvettes, 2 submarines, 8 coastal craft and 4 amphibious assault craft. While it is the 2nd largest military in Latin America, that doesn't necessarily make it the 2nd strongest. Anyway, so long as you're fine with the changes you're accepted.
