History :
The British Empire can trace it's first blossoming during the Age of Exploration when she competed with colonial powers such as Spain and France for domination of trade and commerce across the globe. England would establish settlements on the breast of the New World and the West Indies, while the East Indian Company would conquer territories at gunpoint in India. All these colonial enterprises would lay the foundations of her global empire. Britain would build her empire not through military conquest like Prussia but through the shrewdness of her merchants, not through brute strength but the power of her navy which guarded precious trade routes across the globe making England immensely rich and powerful. The industrial revolution would foster the explosion in science and industry giving her an even greater edge over her peers, and cementing her place has an industrial powerhouse. Of course, Britain would find herself at odds with continental powers first Spain, during the War of Succession, then France in the Napoleonic Wars.

The Napoleonic Wars would see Britain battling against France the fate of Europe and the world in the balance. In the end, Napoleon and his forces would be defeated at the Battle of Waterloo, and Europe would be forever changed. With the French menace subdued and the continent at last at peace, Great Britain would rise has the premier power of the world, giving birth to a 19th century Pax Britannica that saw the British Empire become the most powerful nation on the planet. It is now the dawn of 1884, and much has changed since that fateful day on Sunday, 18th June 1815. The concert of Europe plays on, and new players have joined the Great Game.

Though enjoying splendid isolation throughout most of the 19th-century things have changed. Britain has watched continental affairs closely, and taken into account the rapid rise of the German Empire, they watched has the Germans defeated the French in the Franco-Prussian war, and see it's influence spreading like fire across Europe. Has the Germans establish hegemony across the continent alarm bells ring on the islands. Like countless times before Great Britain, stands to oppose the strongest nation on the continent, to keep the balance of power is of the utmost importance.

No matter what occurs Great Britain will rule the waves, and the sun shall never set on the Empire. Even with rising industrial powers such as Germany, and Japan, the 19th century shall end a British century, and begin anew in the 20th. Has the old anthem goes Rule Britannia! Britannia rule the waves!


That's a really nice app, and I like the breakdown of the Navy. Too bad the Japanese will eclipse them in a few decades. You're accepted.

Empress Dowager Cixi, acting as regent for the child Guangxu Emperor initially rebuffed attempts to reform the government, economy, and military, but her influence and that of her traditionalist faction over the court greatly decreased in the aftermath Boxer rebellion which saw the capital captured by Western troops. In 1879 the Guangxu Emperor officially became of age and ended the regency of the Empress Dowager.

The Beiyang fleet, comprised of the ships bought from Britain and Germany along with the New Army which was reformed into European standards are the initial fruits of this modernization process.

Radical Republicans would involve more equality between freedmen and whites, while Democrats would mean more power for the KKK and the former slave owners. Both seem pretty interesting.

Republicans may help the Zulu movement, but I think it would be folly to think I would have any outside help besides maybe the Germans

There was someone who made an app with territory in China, but it's not completed yet and it's been 4 days. Also, as already stated here, the Boxer Rebellion started in 1899

Just wait . I'll modernize and seek out help from the Europeans such as the British to help improve the navy. The Imperial Japanese Navy will be the envy of the world, and will surpass the British by WW2.

The British are aloof to American politics and affairs but probably would give token support to the Republicans due to Irish Democratic support of the Fenian Rebellion and independence of Ireland.

Otherwise, they could care less about the yanks and their politics.
