ANNOUNCEMENT BOARD
If you require OPs' attention, attach the number '42' to your post.


OP Board
OP: Sveltlana
Vice-OP: Bujahla
Co-OP: The Kingdom of Glitter
RE OP: Alleniana



The aftermath of the Great War of 1913-1919 saw the world a new place, the product of six years of unrestricted warfare across the globe. Trenches still criss-cross the scarred European countryside. Some trenches were turned into mass graves and covered with corpses and dirt. Thousands of miles of minefields and barbed wire stand rusting, wet with the dew of the new morning that never came. Craters now are where once was, for example, a white farmhouse: the oxen are long dead, their powerful muscles gone with the wind. Perhaps there stands a monument on one end of the former battlefield, grim and dead in relation to the youth that fought and died for the sake of empires already on their deathbed. Perhaps there is no monument, but a hole in the ground with an assorted collection of bones.

A man once said that the worst disaster that ever befell Russia was the birth of Lenin, the second worst his death. The Russian Empire ended with the Great War, replaced by a fashionable red star and Marx's hammer and sickle. In the West are the Bolsheviks, sworn to follow Lenin, flying the red flags of revolution. In the Urals is Kolchak, his large volunteer army willing to sacrifice anything to avoid communism. The Reds and the Whites, that is what they are called. Many still believe that both are brothers and that Russia is pink, but now some believe that that is not the case. The Tsar has been forced to abdicate, and the royal family has been exiled from the country, and have taken refuge in Luxembourg, hoping to see the monarchy restored from afar.

In the west, proud France and Italy are also burning with the fires of Revolution: Communists are close to triumph in Italy, with only scant forces left to combat them; France has seen Paris burn twice over the course of three years, both times by her own countrymen. The country of the tricolor is locked into a war that has evolved into Spanish-style Guerilla warfare, with actives spread through the country fighting for either side. The German steamroller has been broken in the Great War; twice were the Russians about to reach Berlin, and twice did the valiant blood of the sons of Germany push them back with cries of Kaiser! Deutschland! The Hapsburg empire is nearing collapse, already there is open rebellion in Hungary, which the broken Austrian army cannot realistically put down without foreign aid. Britain faces the peculiar problem that the British wish to be independent from each other.

Nation Name: All-Russian State (Russian: Vse-Russkiy Gosudarstvennyy)

--
Imperial Population: 13,000,000
Location/Claims:
-- Location : 32
-- Claims: all of the former Russian Empire, upper Manchuria
Capital City: Moscow

Government Info
Government Type: Unitary Provisional Presidential Dictatorship
Brief Explanation of Government: Because of the collapse of the Russian Empire and the abdication and exile of the Tsar, a provisional All-Russian government under the leadership of Admiral Alexander Kolchak has formed to protect the integrity of what once was a mighty empire.
Ideology: Classical Liberalism, Reformism, Pan-Slavism, Christian State, Interventionism, Imperialism
Leader/s: Alexander Vasilyevich Kolchak

Population Info
Brief Description of your people: The Russian and by addition the Slavic people are hardy and strong.
Religion: Christian Orthodoxy
Ethnicity: Russian
Main/Accepted Culture(s): Russian, Varied Upper Asian
Other Cultures: Varied Caucasian, Karelian, Turkish, Mongolian

Economy/Infrastructure Info
Brief Description of your Economy: The Russian economy is currently in a state of utter wreck because of the Civil War. Prior to the Civil War, the economy was adequate and based both on industry and agriculture, as serfdom had been abolished fifty years prior. During the war, the Russian machine was focused on the production of wartime supplies and materials, and, although it suffered considerably as most other economies did, it did not plunge much into negative figures as for example the Italian economy did.
Main exports: Oil, Iron, Steel, Grain, Weapons
Main imports: Miscellaneous Narcotics, Processed Goods and Machinery
Brief Description of your Infrastructure: The most distinctive figure of the Russian infrastructure is the Trans-Siberian railway that connects Moscow to Vladivostok. The railway is only one of a plethora of railways that tie the massive Russian State with itself. Overall, the state of infrastructure of the Russian State is on par with the worldwide average, especially given the size of the country.

Military Info
Army: The army is mostly comprised by volunteers, as the permanent divisions have already been expended in the Great War. The army mostly uses variants of the Mosin-Nagant, with a varied assortment of machine-guns (most notably the Madsen and Maxim guns) employed throughout the machine-gun units of the army. All of Russia's primitive armored vehicles are disabled, and the few combat vehicles employed by the Russian White Army are light and mobile trucks. The Army is managed by the Russian General Staff, a ministry of the government.
Army Group A - Urals - Alexander Vasilyevich Kolchak
- 600,000 Men
- Mostly Russian volunteers from throughout the State
- Man the Ural Line
Army Group C - Ukraine - Anton Ivanovich Denikin
- 300,000 Men
- Holding Ground with Wrangel's forces
Army Group D - Western Russia - Pyotr Nikolayevich Wrangel
- 200,000 Men
- Holding Ground with Denikin's forces
Army Group B - Petrograd - Nikolai Nikolaevich Yudenich
- 150,000 Men
- Sieging Petrograd
11th Army - Arkhangelsk - Yevgeny-Ludvig Karlovich Miller[
- 30,000 Men
- Dug in in Arkhangelsk

Navy: The Russian Navy is currently at port, having seen no use in over three years. It counts large dreadnoughts such as the Imperatrisa Mariya, although most of them are being slowly rendered obsolete by the British and German fleets.

Diplomacy Info
Brief description of your Foreign Policy: Russia has a difficult foreign policy, as there are three main entities each with different policies. The first is the Russian state led by Kolchak. The second is the Bolshevik Revoutionaries led by Lenin. The third is the Russian Empire, led by the government-in-exile of Tsar Nicholas II. Kolchak's government has received and is receiving large amounts of foreign aid; the Bolsheviks rely more on weapon and supply stashes taken from the former Russian Empire and have severed ties to the rest of the world. Many countries are contrastingly supportive of the Tsar's return to Russia, although that is a virtual impossibility.
Protectorates/Dominions/Satellites: None
Alliance/Alignments: Allied with
Other aspects: N/A

Other Info
Goals: Eventually recover from civil war, Defeat Bolsheviks, restore the power of the Russian Empire
History: Peter the Great rose to find his country a backwards and archaic state, based upon age-old truths and facts that Western Europe had long since abandoned. What came about during his Tsardom was stunning – in the course of twenty five years, Russia advanced as rapidly as some Western European states had advanced over periods spanning hundreds of years. Peter also engaged in military conquests: the troublesome Swedes were trampled under the Russian Bear, their empire shattered into disparate pieces. Ingria was claimed for Russia and Peter built the city of St. Petersburg, Petrograd, and the Peterhof to commemorate his success. Meanwhile, the European states still bickered over petty affairs.

Following Peter's legacy, his children continued the modernization of Russia. A critical moment came until 1861, when Alexander II finally abolished the institution of serfdom and embraced the citizenship standards of Western Europe. WIP.

Hi.

Reservation:
Location: 1.
Nation Name: United States of Columbia
635 - Do not remove. This is for tracking purposes.

Image



Generic Info
Nation Name: United States of Columbia
Symbols: Flag, War Flag / Pennant, Hail, Columbia!, Lady Columbia
Homeland Population: (1923)
--- USA - 111,947,000
--- Mexico - 14,801,000
Imperial Population:
--- Pacific Territories - 3,000,000
--- Liberia - 780,000
Location/Claims:
- Location - {TBD when number map goes up}
- Claims - Philippines, Central America, Chile, Loose claims to all of the Americas (Monroe Doctrine, not that legit), (Someone help me figure out how to claim Australia)
Capital City: Washington DC

Government Info
Government Type: Presidential Constitutional Federal Republic
Brief Explanation of Government: The USC is run the same way as IRL with regards to separation of powers, the branches, and essentially everything. Nothing overly complicated here. Just as IRL, there is no national language so Spanish and English are used interchangeably in parts of the nation with a national "bilingual" campaign being run out of Mexico City.
Ideology: Democracy, Capitalism, *Monroe Doctrine*, *Empire of Liberty*, Semi-Isolationism
Leader/s: President Calvin Coolidge (Head of State and Government)

Population Info
Brief Description of your people: The USC is a very diverse nation but has two main ethnic groups. There is the Anglo-Saxons which make up much of the north. As well there is the Hispanic population which makes up much of the southern parts of the nation. The nation has become increasingly tolerant after a series of liberal court decisions in the 1800's which have pushed the nation on a different path than one might expect. It is very open to immigration and there are decent sized communities of Asian and European populations within Columbia.
Religion: Officially Secular. Most populous is Protestantism followed by Catholicism. Other minority religions include native religions, Judaism, and Islam (Liberia).
Ethnicity: Anglo-saxon / Hispanic
Main/Accepted Culture(s): Anglo-Saxon / Hispanic* (* They are a major force in the southern states and have a sizable role in the government.)
Other Cultures: African-American (Small in population compared to the hispanic population, though there is desegregation and they aren't scapegoats), Native populations

Economy/Infrastructure Info
Brief Description of your Economy: Up and swinging with the Jazz age! The economy is doing fantastic. Following the end of the Great War, the USC began giving major loans to many of the nations involved, especially with the Young Plan with {whoever lost}. This switch from debtor to loaner his transformed the economy which is now on the up-and-up.
Main exports: Manufactured goods, occasional resources
Main imports: occasional resources, luxury goods
Brief Description of your Infrastructure: It's developed in many states, but could use some improvement in parts of the nation. Overall it's quite good considering the size of the nation.

Military Info
Army: The USC's army consists of 230,000 active men. Following the great war, the de-armament process started, but it has been slow as the current gov't isn't favoring its removal. The quality of the army is top-notch and it's one of the best in the world.
Navy: The USC's navy is a force to be reckon with. Consisting of nearly 1,100 ships, it roams the Pacific predominantly, but also the Atlantic and Caribbean. It is one of Columbia's biggest expenditures and is used to protect the vast ocean empire.
Air Force: The USC air force (currently known as the air corps) is quite small. It consists of 23,000 men and has very few air planes. It is in the process of being built up to an actually useful force.

Diplomacy Info
Brief description of your Foreign Policy: The Foreign Policy of the USC used to be primarily based upon the "Monroe Doctrine" in which it was solely focused on the Americas. Since the late 1800's though, it has expanded it's influence to include most of the Pacific Ocean. It's "Empire of Liberty" concept (which comes from Jefferson) is based upon expanding the USA across the Americas to give liberty to the people of central and south America. As well, it has plans to get further involved in the Pacific. First, however, it must absorb it's sphere of influence in the Americas.
Protectorates/Dominions/Satellites:
-- Protectorate - Cuba
-- Satellites - Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Ecuador, Colombia, Santo-domingo
Alliance/Alignments: TBD
Other aspects: We the best

Other Info
Goals:
- Annex Central America
- Annex Chile
- Conquer the Americas in the name of Liberty
- Somehow get Canada in a diplo-annex
- Purchase territories in Asia
- Somehow get Australia (cause that'd be so cool)
History: To-do-later
RP Sample: Lol no.

Just as IRL, there is no national language so Spanish and English are used interchangeably in parts of the nation with a national "bilingual" campaign being run out of Mexico City.
Ideology: Democracy, Capitalism, *Monroe Doctrine*, *Empire of Liberty*, Semi-Isolationism
Leader/s: President Calvin Coolidge (Head of State and Government)

Population Info
Brief Description of your people: The USC is a very diverse nation but has two main ethnic groups. There is the Anglo-Saxons which make up much of the north. As well there is the Hispanic population which makes up much of the southern parts of the nation. The nation has become increasingly tolerant after a series of liberal court decisions in the 1800's which have pushed the nation on a different path than one might expect. It is very open to immigration and there are decent sized communities of Asian and European populations within Columbia.
Religion: Officially Secular. Most populous is Protestantism followed by Catholicism. Other minority religions include native religions, Judaism, and Islam (Liberia).
Ethnicity: Anglo-saxon / Hispanic
Main/Accepted Culture(s): Anglo-Saxon / Hispanic* (* They are a major force in the southern states and have a sizable role in the government.)
Other Cultures: African-American (Small in population compared to the hispanic population, though there is desegregation and they aren't scapegoats), Native populations

Economy/Infrastructure Info
Brief Description of your Economy: Up and swinging with the Jazz age! The economy is doing fantastic. Following the end of the Great War, the USC began giving major loans to many of the nations involved, especially with the Young Plan with {whoever lost}. This switch from debtor to loaner his transformed the economy which is now on the up-and-up.
Main exports: Manufactured goods, occasional resources
Main imports: occasional resources, luxury goods
Brief Description of your Infrastructure: It's developed in many states, but could use some improvement in parts of the nation. Overall it's quite good considering the size of the nation.

Military Info
Army: The USC's army consists of 230,000 active men. Following the great war, the de-armament process started, but it has been slow as the current gov't isn't favoring its removal. The quality of the army is top-notch and it's one of the best in the world.
Navy: The USC's navy is a force to be reckon with. Consisting of nearly 1,100 ships, it roams the Pacific predominantly, but also the Atlantic and Caribbean. It is one of Columbia's biggest expenditures and is used to protect the vast ocean empire.
Air Force: The USC air force (currently known as the air corps) is quite small. It consists of 23,000 men and has very few air planes. It is in the process of being built up to an actually useful force.

Diplomacy Info
Brief description of your Foreign Policy: The Foreign Policy of the USC used to be primarily based upon the "Monroe Doctrine" in which it was solely focused on the Americas. Since the late 1800's though, it has expanded it's influence to include most of the Pacific Ocean. It's "Empire of Liberty" concept (which comes from Jefferson) is based upon expanding the USA across the Americas to give liberty to the people of central and south America. As well, it has plans to get further involved in the Pacific. First, however, it must absorb it's sphere of influence in the Americas.
Protectorates/Dominions/Satellites:
-- Protectorate - Cuba
-- Satellites - Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Ecuador, Chile, Santo-domingo
Alliance/Alignments: TBD
Other aspects: We the best

Other Info
Goals:
- Annex Central America
- Annex Chile
- Conquer the Americas in the name of Liberty
- Somehow get Canada in a diplo-annex
- Purchase territories in Asia
- Somehow get Australia (cause that'd be so cool)
History: To-do-later
RP Sample: Lol no.
429 - Do not remove. This is for tracking purposes.

You seem new. Want to consider playing as a smaller and 'easier' to use nation rather than Brazil?

In South America there are plenty of applicable nations - Cartagena (OTL Colombia) would be an option, as well as Venezuela... and using Columbian aid to increase your power slowly before breaking free of the Columbian sphere is always a fun venture.

Alright, perfect. Talk with other South American players if and when they apply so you break USC's hegemony over America :)
