RP Description:

This world has changed. Where once one horizon was seen as the boundaries of the known world, now there have been two. In the west, England challenged the behemoth of Spain and emerged victorious, bloodying the Iberian mainland into civil conflict and claiming Brasil as her own. The Portuguese left their war torn home to seek better fortunes in the colonies, capitalizing on England's reduced influence in North America to expand into the southern portions of continent. The French too have maintained influence in the New World. Though they have lost Nova Gallia to revolution, French Louisiana remains a font of potential riches. To the north the Kalmar union survived and evolved, once a tool of Denmark now of Sweden, after Gustavus Adolphus claimed the throne. In the east, though Constantinople still fell, the fires of Byzantium remained, and alliance of Balkan states, Venetians and the Morean League drove back the invaders to the walls of Constantinople, before succumbing to petty rivalry and disbanding. The Mamluks have risen to fill the void left by the Ottoman caliphate of our time, biding their time to expand once more. In the far east, the Song have survived the inexorable tides of the former Mongol invaders, and have risen stronger than ever, basking in the fires of production and claiming far distant shores as their own. To the South, the Majapahit conquered and united Nusantara, expanding their lucrative trade and exotic goods far from their home islands. Japan watches warily across the seas, determined to resist the tides of the Song and other great powers by building an empire of their own in the Pacific.

The world has changed, and much change shall yet be seen. Will you build your nation from the ancient mists of time into the fires of industry in the East? In the West, shall you unify petty countries into an all conquering empire? Or shall you brave the New World, to seize riches and glory in wild and vast lands. The choice great leader, is yours...

Other Useful Information
Map of Swiss territorial expansion and internal organisation, from 1/1/1835 A.D. onwards

Military Organisation
Nation-General - Entire Swiss military (including navy/air force, in theory, if they were to come into existence)
Army-General - 100,000 men (Army, named as Army <descriptor>, e.g. "Army of Switzerland") (but since the Swiss Army isn't that big yet, it's just anything more than one division)
Division-General - 10,000 men (Division, named as Division <Roman numeral>, e.g. "Division II")
Battalion-General - 1,000 men (Battalion, named as <ordinal> <descriptor> Battalion <descriptor>, e.g. "1st Cavalry Battalion Jura")
Company-General - 100 men (Company, named as <ordinal> Company <battalion>, e.g. "2nd Company 3rd Artillery Battalion Basel")

-at-Large appended to a rank means that they aren't actually leading a unit that they are able to
-of-<unit> appended to a rank means that they are leading the unit appended that is of a lower rank than they are fully allowed to
There are no NCOs; a soldier may seek commission at any time, and there is a separate supply structure and auxiliary officer structure connected to the main one
Uniform is fairly uniform (heh) across the army, and consists of a madder rose coloured frock coat/justacorps cross (parted at the bottom middle, has lapel, single part in the middle with buttons, collars, down to nearly knee height; so, maybe like more like a coatee-great coat cross???), over slightly-longer-than-usual a sleeved waistcoat of white, with also a single line of buttons in the middle. Red breeches reach nearly to the ankle, and black leather gaiters reach up nearly to the knee, issued with white socks. Headwear is something like a slouch hat, a bowler hat, a bucket hat, a homburg, a trilby and and a fedora all merged in one; made of hard black felt, it has a small brim all around, extending at the front and back. The brim might be a little bit flexible, but the crown, which has a slight gutter, is rigid, and made of Merino wool generally (unless Merino wool can't make hard felt, in which case assume some other black felt; whatever a bowler is made of, I guess). The brim isn't upturned, but it's not droopy either; somewhere in between. Feel free to call it a Swiss hat; incidentally, Google Searching that turns up something similar to what I envisioned. The hat has a cockade with white in the centre, red outside, and is larger for officers. A badge will be of differing design depending on unit (colour is division, writing is battalion & company), and will also vary in size for officers, while gold (and silver?) epaulettes and trimmings determine rank; perhaps officers wear a modified taller hat, with a plume that changes according to rank. Soldiers will have packs and muskets and supplies and all the usual stuff; bayonets and muskets are made to the "Swiss pattern". Rucksacks are a sort of yellowy leather, with tassels and trimmings depending on division.
you may or may not have noticed that black, red and yellow are all present, only other colour is white for the cross >:3

The Grand Duchy of Epirus



Current Ruler: Grand Duchess Theodora I
Age: 25
Picture:
Image

Children: Prince Constantine, Princess Zoe
Short Bio: A granddaughter of Grand Duke Nikephoros II, Theodora is the daughter of Nikephoros’s second son Prince Alexios, and the Hungarian Princess Márta. Theodora lived a pampered and sheltered life, and initially, she was not expected to inherit the Epirote throne.

In 1820, Prince Nicholas was assassinated by an Albanian nationalist. Nicholas was second-in-line to the throne, with his father being Grand Duchess Anna’s younger brother, then-Prince Nikephoros. The royal family was devastated by Nicholas’s loss, and now, Prince Alexios was expected to be the future Grand Duke. However, Alexios was uninterested in ruling, preferring to drink and spend time in brothels. With the stress of being future Grand Duke bearing down on him, Alexios spent more time away from his family, and instead, the prince got drunk at bars and patronized prostitutes. This took a toll on Alexios’s health, and he died of liver failure in 1825.

With both Nicholas and Alexios dead, the burden of succession passed to Theodora. Theodora found her activities tightly restricted, with by her mother Márta and her mother’s lover Lavrentios Michelakakis closely monitoring Theodora, and when combined with her father’s death, the princess became melancholic and withdrawn. On the rare occasions Theodora ventured out in public, the people rejoiced at seeing their future Grand Duchess, but this only added to Theodora’s stress.

Finally, in 1828, with Theodora having reached the age of 18, the princess finally broke free of her mother’s control. Seeking to avoid coming under her mother’s control again, Theodora began searching for her husband. She found one in Michael Xanthopoulos, a nobleman who was 6 years her senior. Despite Michael’s lower birth, Michael and Theodora were madly in love, and in 1830, Grand Duke Nikephoros II granted permission for the two to marry. They were married in an elaborate ceremony at the Cathedral of St. Paul and St. Asteios in Dyrrachium on November 15, 1830.

In 1833, Grand Duke Nikephoros died at age 78, and Theodora inherited the throne. In her first proclamation as Grand Duchess, she stated that her husband Michael would be her co-ruler, coronated as Grand Duke with the same dignities as her. The coronation took place on January 2nd, 1834, thus beginning the Era of Theodora and Michael.

While nominally Theodora and Michael share power, Michael mostly defers to his wife, leaving Theodora the ruler of Epirus. As Grand Duchess, Theodora oversaw the continued patronage of Greek culture, the expansion of the navy, and the lowering of taxes. Theodora has also invested in the army, and privately, she has taken a strong interest in military affairs in order to prepare for any coming wars. Though Theodora has only been on the throne 2 years, she has already proven herself to be a fair and just monarch.


Current Co-Ruler: Grand Duke Michael
Age: 31
Picture:
Image

Children: Prince Constantine, Princess Zoe
Short Bio: Born Michael Xanthopoulos, Michael’s father is John Xanthopoulos, Duke of Neokastron; while Michael’s mother is Anselma Amerighi, daughter of a Venetian diplomat. Michael grew up in the family’s luxurious estate just outside of Dyrrachium; Michael lived in extravagant wealth, and he received the best education possible.

However, in 1816, a major economic downturn devastated the Xanthopoulos family fortune. Michael’s family lost much of their wealth, and the little money they had left was wasted in business ventures that failed to pan out. Desperate, Michael’s parents wrote to Grand Duchess Anna, asking she accept Michael as a ward. Anna agreed.

In 1818, Michael was sent away to Doukas Palace in Dyrrachium to join the royal court. For four years, Anna helped to raise Michael. During this time, Michael first met his future wife Theodora, though their interactions were brief due to Theodora’s infrequent visits to the palace.

Finally, in 1822, Michael came of age and joined the court as a courtier. The next year, Michael’s father died, and Michael became Duke of Neokastron. Michael moved back to his family estates to tend to the family’s finances. With the economy improving, Michael invested in a serious of successful business ventures, improving the family’s financial situation. With the finances secured, Michael returned to the royal court in 1827. The next year, he again met Theodora.

Theodora and Michael quickly fell in love. Theodora found Michael to be charming and handsome, while Michael thought Theodora was vivacious and witty. However, the romance was somewhat of a scandal at court: by this time, Theodora was heiress presumptive to the throne, and it was expected she would marry a foreign prince. However, Theodora had made up her mind. At last, Grand Duke Nikephoros II consented to the marriage in 1830, and the couple was married in a lavish ceremony.

In 1833, Nikephoros II died. Theodora, as Nikephoros’s granddaughter, succeeded to the throne of Epirus. In her first decree, Theodora laid out her government’s long-term goals, and also announced that Michael would be her co-ruler. However, even before the coronation, Michael made it clear both publicly and privately that he highly valued his wife’s judgment, and would let her take the lead in most governmental affairs. However, Michael didn’t surrender all his power: Michael still maintains quite a bit of sway among the nation’s finances, and Michael is a powerful liaison between the Senate and Theodora. While Michael has taken a secondary role during his reign, Michael is still a shrewd and intelligent man, who is able to exert a great amount of power over Epirus.

Mid-Atlantic Fleet

Stationed in Philadelphia, the Mid-Atlantic Fleet is the second fleet maintained by the Columbian Federal Navy. Compared to its sister fleet in Boston, the Mid-Atlantic Fleet is much better fitted for coastal defense than it is offense. The Mediterranean Squadron consists of a Ship of the Line and several of the unrated frigates from this fleet. The Squadron has been tasked with fighting Barbary pirates in the Mediterranean for decades, but since the European colonization of the coastline of Mediterranean Africa, expeditions across the Atlantic seldom occur and the squadron is largely ceremonial.
