Eagle, Bear, and Flower: A Three Way Cold War RP(OOC/Reboot)

Part I: Prelude


America. A golden land of opportunity and riches. A land of freedom and equality. A land where dreams came true. When the first world war came to an end, that was what everyone believed. From the metropolis that was Europe to the Australian outback, all knew of America as a free, stunning nation.

But now they say nothing.

When the stock market crash of 1929 hit, only a few cold psychopaths laughed. America was plunged into darkness, and western civilization went with it. In the election of 1932, many hopped Hoover would loose. But by a hair's breath, that was not to be. John Nance Garner was the Democrat nominee, not the young, arguably socialist FDR. Hoover, with his message of live and let live, while not letting the claws of socialism take the nation, won by a narrow margin. At this point, a dark truth hit people-the great depression wouldn't end by ballot.

In New York, however, a group of four hundred men took this to their heart. They didn't believe in democracy as anything more than a means to an end. They believed in a new idea- technocracy, a government run by technical elites. On January 19, they gathered at the Pierre hotel to their movements leader- Howard Scott. Emboldened by FDR's loss, Scott concluded he needed to capture support for the movement- and the time was now. That day, on a nationwide broadcast, Scott made a speech, detailing the plans for a technate spanning across all of North America. Many flocked to this new movement, and on Scott's birthday, April 1st, 1933, a new party was declared- the Technocratic Party.


Part II: Rise of Evil


Over the next few years, the party went on a nationwide campaign to secure it's support. On March 9th, 1935, Scott put his hat in the ring. A tough, three way election ensued, and the vote was nearly split. But by a few Californian and New York votes, Scott was president. He went about changing many national policies in the next two years, like instituting a government initiative to expand foreign markets to Mexico, also on a technocratic path, founding economic deals with socialist countries, and instituting technocratic companies into the stock market. The economy rose, but no changes were made-until 1938. In the midterms, the vote was split 43% technocrat, 41% democrat, and 16% Republican in the House, and 44% democrat, 42% technocrat, and 14% republican in the senate. The republicans, split between two factions, one despising the technocrats and the other believing in a coalition, fell completely. By one percent, the Technocrats managed to take control of the House. The Senate republicans were alone.

But the Democratic party, on February 17th, 1939, offered a solution- an economically conservative, socially liberal platform. The republicans, in desperate need of safety,decided to merged with them. Congress was split, and nothing could be done with this arrangement. On March 4th, 1939, Scott declared the merge unconstitutional until the next election, believing the great depression wouldn't be solved. The other two parties, now separate, declared an impeachment trial. Scott's judges refused, and the other two parties declared the Technocrats whole government an illegal institution. On March 6th, 1939, they attempted to March on Washington. A battle ensued between them and the technocrats, and in a surprise move, Scott was shot by a sniper. A authoritarian faction, led by Harold Loeb, took power in the battle, and stopped a takeover. All other parties were banned, and on April 1st, 1939, the Technocratic Republic of America was declared.


Part III: World War 2



As the second world war began, the Japanese came knocking. They demanded from America four things- Guam, Hawaii, the Philippines, and Samoa. America accepted-for a relatively low price that was 20% of the Islands cost. Though there were protests, the technocrats crushed them, and refused to enter the war. Around this time, they signed an alliance with Mexico.

In Europe, the Germans fought the British, but could not yet defeat them. With no help if American companies, however, they couldn't readily prepare to attack the Soviets until 1942. The Japanese and Soviets still signed a non-aggression pact, due to Soviet aid to Chinese communists. When Barbarossa happened, the Soviets were better prepared. With no American help however, by 1945, the war was at a stalemate. All of Africa was under allied control, baring the neutral nations.

Until the second spring of nations.

Part IV: Revolution and Collapse


On February 24, 1945, America saw a brief opportunity. Loeb inspired the French to rise up against the occupation, and the starving Masses accepted. But many were communist, not technocrats, and soon they took control. The french sprang up, then the Italians. The regimes were overthrown, but the German troops still held Alsace, Lorraine, and South Tirol. The Yugoslav partisans swiftly retook Yugoslavia, and then occupied Greece, Bulgaria, and Albania. The Soviets broke through, rushing into Poland and stopping at the 1914 German border.Romania fell to the Soviets in the next weeks, with Hungary falling soon after. Their leaders told the British that the Soviets had began to commit massacres of German protesters wanting food. All of Europe heard, and the British offered a harsh peace to Germany. The Germans reluctantly accepted, and soon united against the Russians. The king of Britain was dissatisfied with Churchill (like me) for siding with perpetrators of a genocide. Nearly all of Europe (baring Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Monaco) allied against the flood.

But the Americans wanted more. They drove into Canada, Central America, and Panama, leading to Britain fighting them. Ireland suffered a technocratic coup, and invaded the north part of the island. By 1947, the tide was turning. The Japanese attacking India and breaking non aggression by letting Menjiang attack Mongolia and invading Xinjiang didn't help. The Germans were forced to give Hanover to Britain to keep the troops from leaving them. This cost the non-socialist Europeans the war. By 1948, King George the VI realized this. He attempted to reform the empire, but was stopped. With the Torry coalition in charge, he dissolved parliament to get his way. They British rioted, and Scotland, along with Wales, fell to become technocratic puppets. On May 9th, 1948, London was captured. The Fuhrer was forced to sign peace, then got shot. George fled to South Africa, as the commonwealth collapsed. India surrendered before, Australia became a republic, the rest was sold off, and Egypt tried to take Sudan, but collapsed into civil war. Persia was occupied by the Japanese and Russians. Africa collapsed, the chaos consuming Liberia. Ethiopia took control of the Somalis. By August, Australia launched a last ditch offensive in a desperate, hopeless attempt to stop Japan. Which worked out. The final battle of WW2, in Australia, took all of Papua New Guinea, and its west counterpart, forcing Japan to sign peace with the Federal Republic of Australia, which now controlled New Zealand. On September 2nd, 1948, George VI of South Africa surrendered. Namibia was annexed, and mainland Portugal was occupied. Spain and Portugal later became French puppets. The rest of Portugal's regime in Mozambique slowly went into South Africa's sphere. The Second World War was over.

Now, Months have Passed. A broken world recovers. The Soviets began a blockade around South London. Africa remains lost baring a few holdouts. America seems poised to rule the world, but is locked in a bidding war with South American countries over German scientists that it seems to soon win. And as the bells sound the start of 1949, what is the fate of this dark gloomy world that you will find yourself in? Who will you play as? Who will win, between the Eagle, Bear, and Flower?

Back in the 1800's, if you told someone that Japan, a small, isolationist island in the pacific, would conquer China, India, and the Indies, they would laugh at you and call you an idiot. But now, just as with America, their mouths are shut. After uniting under a monarchy, Japan, through a series of wars, controlled most of Asia with an Iron grip. From Iran to Hawaii, Japan, along with it's vast area of protectorates, puppets, and allies, marched united under the Co-Prosperity Sphere. On the exterior, one would assume it to be a delicate, friendly, orderly alliance, united against imperialism under a God-Emperor.

But the truth is far more complex and disgusting. For beneath this array of Friendliness, oppression lies just beneath the surface. It's puppets are regularly pillaged by Japanese soldiers, looking for valuable items, ranging from foreign currency to ancient scrolls, promised by their commanders to get riches. Its allies live in fear of being completely subjugated, only allying out of threat of war in the last decades. Border incidents on the 32nd parallel between North and South Persia are frequent. It's protectorates have barely any autonomy, and their are many that believe that even the Emperor is a figurehead(though it is only known to Japan if this is true). As the Chrysanthemum flower blossoms, many find it more like a infectious disease. Whether this will change or not is unknown, but one thing is clear- the Co-Prosperity Sphere is not what it seems.



In the 1900's, Russia was a progressing nation. While Poor and Agrarian, it was industrializing very quickly, scaring even the Germans. And while it's nature was autocratic, there were over time ever so small signs of change.

And though the industrialization came, it was not how they desired.

When the German invasion happened, many were unprepared. The death toll on the Eastern Front quickly grew into millions. Entire battles lasted a year and claimed many lives. But when the Second Spring of Nations came, the Bear truly awoke. After Operation Unthinkable ended in failure for the British, nearly all of Europe was either under control of the USSR, or allied with it.

But all know the victory, the alliance, and the industrialization are all just propaganda. The premier only grows more paranoid every day, his rule seemingly never ending. But unlike Japan, there is another layer visible_ and that is that the leader is getting older. And as the world looks at Russia, they see darkness, and in that darkness, something else- a slowly growing , barely visible, glimmer of hope.


When most look at the world, they see 3 things- America, the Soviets, and Japan. But there are others, resting in the shadows, staying away from the light or waiting to leap into it.

In Americas southern counterpart, it's Spanish brothers wait, biding their time- literally. Wanting former Scientists from Germany, America and it's neighbors have been locked in a grand unofficial biding war since 1946 over them- and the prices, already in the hundreds of thousands, are still growing. America seems poised to win- unless someone helps the South Americas.

In the Middle East, in the ruins of devastation, a new country arose- the Levant. While a technocratic republic, it views the Americans negatively, due to their authoritarianism and love of German scientists. Ruled by Albert Einstein, who emigrated to the then British Colony following the Technocratic coup in America, they seek to truly live up to their name, and unite all of the Levant under a technocratic system- with democracy of course. Other nations grow. Yemen annexed the local British colony, and Iraq forced Syria into personal union, along with gaining a protectorate over Kuwait.

In the lands of Africa, rests the last remnant of the British Empire. George VI grows old however, and there are many issues on his succession. Ethiopia stands proud, its empire stretching across the Horn of Africa too.In Egypt, a civil war ravages the country. Monarchists, Republicans, Communists, technocrats, nationalists, Militarists, Islamic extremists, and separatists all battle each other, with America and the USSR supporting factions following their principles. Tunisia sits quite, squashed between two socialist states. The rests sits in absolute silence, waiting to be explored.

In the Australian outback, a new nation emerged- the Federal Republic of Australia. While new, it managed fight off the Japanese, and some believe it has a dream- to unite all of Oceania under a federation, and bring back democracy to the world.

Locked between Three communist regimes, the Swiss prepare, building a vast bunker network and training their soldiers to the brim, living in constant fear of invasion. And in Iceland, as the Danish Government-in-Exile waits to come home, a man bought something on the 4th of November. It was his favorite thing- a radio set.








Application

Code: Select all

[b]Reason for Playing Nation:[/b]





1. No Unrealistic Roleplaying.

2. If you are a third party wanting to prevent the player from doing something(like if Iceland wanted to stop American planes) or starting something to further the story(i.e. North Iran invading South Iran), you may do so, but don't choose their actions for them(i.e. making America loose to the USSR while playing as a country.

3. Do not argue with other people over political things unless it is in character.

4. This is sometimes based on luck, but I will analyze the players actions to make the consequence as likely as possible. So trying to conquer the world using nuclear missiles without getting nuked probably won't end well, but letting a force attack a weak point before encircling them probably will end in victory.

5. The Japanese player gets to choose their de facto ruler: Hirohito or Tojo. I recommend you use an educated guess, but I can't stop you.

6. Each time a player takes one turn, an in-game day will pass.

7. Each main country(Japan, USSR, America) will start with 1,000,000 troops, but will be able to increase it by 100,000 every 20 turns. All the major powers(South Africa, Australia, Switzerland, France, etc.) will have 100,000 troops and be able to increase them by 10,000 every 20 turns.All minor countries(Tunisia, Bhutan, Kuwait) will have a starting army of 10,000 and be able to increase it by 50,000 every 20 turns. The maximum amount of troops allowed is 10,000,000.

8. The game will last until January 1st, 1979.

9.In the IC thread, it is fine to speak as the nations leader, in third person, or as a news report.

10. You must have a reason to go to war.

11. If I or you feel th Real-life leader wouldn't be the leader of the nation for a governmental and/or historical reason, you can change them to another person.

12. Anyone who is inactive for two real-life weeks or more will be banned. They may reapply, but have to be active.

13. You can naval land a force of 5,000 at maximum, unless it's different types of forces. You can prepare and increase all of the forces for landing every 5 turns(3 less if you have Sigmund).

14. I can add, alter, or delete rules at any time.




Date: February 22nd, 1949

Alright, the changes have been made. Since there is no one else, I guess it is fine for you to inspect military and try to pass laws-in the realm or possibility, of course.

Reason for Playing Nation: India was (and is) a very interesting place, and a Japanese victory and subsequent implementation of a puppet government makes the RP a flexible and intriguing option.

Ooh, playing as a puppet government. Interesting choice. I think it would make for fun gameplay.

Yes you can, whenever an election happens.


Edit: Wait, McKell was Governor-General. Australia is a federal republic now. So they probably have another leader. Yeah, you can choose a new one.

Also, for those wondering what the map color means, the lighter a nation in an alliance is, the less control the leadr of the alliance has over them. First come protectorates(Finland, Malaysia, Indonesia), then occupation zones (American-England, Soviet-England, German Occupation Zone), then come puppets(Scotland, Menjiang, Turkey), then North Iran(a puppet) has a protectorate in Kurdistan, then come states that are either independent allies or just under influence (Ireland, France, South Iran), then the protectorate's of allies (Algeria, Lybia, Lebanon), the puppets of the allies (Spain, Albania, Greece), and finnaly wartime offensive (the offensives in Menjiang and Mongolia by both sides, since they're at war).

DSO Profile: Alexander Sigmund

Full Name: Alexander Leverich Sigmund
Gender: Male
Age: 46(as of last sighting)
Date of Birth: February 10th, 1902
Location: Last photo in London, last mention on Ferry en route to Norway over the North Atlantic. Last known official residence was New Orleans, Louisiana.
Appearance: 7 foot tall, lean man. Brown eyes, brown hair, white skin. Sports angled bob cut, 3 inch incision on both sides. Sports suit, bow tie. Wears circular prescription glasses, gloves, and a 10 inch smile. Is smiling constantly, even when house is searched. Has Cherokee roots, speaks French.
Behavior: Polite, invasive of boundaries, paranoid around living people, extremely clean. Talks as if he is always hosting his show, likely due to arrogance, and sometimes breaks into song. Extremely hypocritical.
Occupation: Show Host
Crimes: Religiousness, Murder, Treason, Identity Fraud, Jaywalking.

Biography: Alexander Sigmund was born in 1902 to a Louisiana family, near the Florida panhandle. As a child, he was raised by his parents in a family of seven. He was loved by his mother, whose cooking he adored, but was neglected by his father who attempted to treat all the children frequently. When his father came back from the First World War, he was shell shocked, prompting him to become very hypocritical and paranoid, and due to his treatment of all children frequently, became an influence on them. Sigmund adopted some of his behaviors later in life.

When he became 17, he went to a university in New Orleans to study. He was always reclusive, and seeked no relationships. He graduated when he was 19, and soon found himself involved in radio. Due to it's growing use, he became a radio host, regularly updating people on topics from weather to infamous events. He however, secluded himself from politics at that time. However, when the television was invented, his popularity started declining, and when the stock market crash happened, he laughed about it live on radio and lost his job.

It was around this time that Sigmund began his criminal activities. He grew even more reclusive, mostly keeping interaction to his mother. He began going out at night and coming back the next morning. He was also suspected to be involved in Voodoo around this time. Despite this, he kept reporting on a homemade set and still talked and smiled like nothing changed. His life was fairly the same until 1939, when he was found with a Voodoo doll that may by a passerby. Due to the new laws, the government searched his home, and found not only Voodoo, but blood. He resisted them brutally, and when a team searched his home, it exploded, killing 10. Sigmund himself was last seen by a local passerby, where he was heading to an airport. By the time authorities notified the workers, Sigmund was on an airplane to Canada. When it was intercepted by local authorities, however, Sigmund wasn't there.

This seemed to be the end of Sigmund, but six months later, a radio broadcast from England was received. It was revealed to be from Sigmund, who claimed he was in London and kept his radio set. He revealed he stowed away in the cargo hold and boarded another flight to Britain. Despite being tried in absentia and found guilty for life in prison, he claimed he didn't want to let a little incident to get in the way. The London authorities were notified, but found no record of him in the city. Alexander also regularly spoke of politics, indicating his interests had changed, He continued broadcasting every few months, claiming to be in one city or another, but always not being there. What made it worse were impostors seeking attention, Alexander having no clear pattern, and the London authorities doubting the charges. By 1941, they gave up all hope of finding him, and claimed that all sentences except identity Fraud and Jaywalking were wrong. After that, he stopped broadcasting to America completely.

However, by 1947, the second world war was nearly over. American troops landed in Britain, and continued fighting. When the Royal crisis happened, Sigmund finally launched one last broadcast claiming he was in London, and promising that was the truth. The government raced to London, but the Soviets got there first. When they were informed May 10th, they found from a dock worker at Thames, which splits North and South London, that an Alexander Sigmund boarded a ship bound for Norway. When the ship was intercepted, a passenger mentioned Sigmund excused himself during lunch, one hour before. After two days, the escape boats were counted, and one was missing. Sigmund was gone.

Months have passed, but Sigmund lay quite. A charge of treason was added, punishable by death, though no trial has occurred. His mother is in prison for guilt by association, and his father is currently used in a psychiatric hospital to treat illnesses, being put to sleep most of the time with various chemicals. No boat was found in the Atlantic or Arctic, indicating Sigmund either escaped somewhere without American knowledge or drowned. Regardless, the search continues.

Country Name: Argentina
Reason for Playing Nation: I want to pull a Palpatine, but that has to happen in a democratic country. Argentina, with its mix of democracy and dictatorships, is the perfect country.
Of course this is not the only reason I participate, I just couldn't find a country. The "Palpatining" is long-term and I will gladly participate in normal events. You can expect me once a day.
Only in unity can man survive. So we enforce unity at all costs.

Accepted, and it's fine if you post once a day. Regarding your Palpatining, there's a few thoughts floating in my head about what that means. Regardless, I'll watch your playthrough with great interest.

Oh, and also, you are currently biding against the North American Technate, along with the Rest of south America, over German scientists. Its called biding because you, the others, and the Americans consistently increase the wages of the Germans. Currently, the wage for a scientist is 500,000 dollars a year, which was bet by you and your countries, but the two main ones(AKA Werner von Braun and a certain Josef whose last name I will not say) have double whatever you bet. You have to bid at least 90 turns after the last one, or you loose. However, if you start betting more than all your GDP's combined, you either stop, have to continue till you run out of money, or print more and cause inflation, so unless you get some sort of aid, you loose the "Great Biding War". Have fun.

Reason for Playing Nation: I want to manage the world as Russia and recover the world with its past wars to help my allies rebuild. Making Europe with my allies an industrial powerhouse.

Alrighty. Have fun fighting airlifts and managing occupation zones for now. Don't worry, it gets better every year that goes by. And I don't mean in a "better as in there's more suffering and boredom" I actually mean better.
