China has been reserved. Do you want to wait for a week in case the player does not deliver an app as China or do you want to move to some other country? Maybe you could do Egypt or Iran, both very important and interesting countries.

Turkey has already been reserved. I am currently in the process of updating the roster (hadn't been able to do so in the last days due to some personal problems limiting my time online).

Would you like to reserve some other country? :)

Most of South America and the Middle East is open. So is most of South Asia.

Looks good and I will be willing to accept it, but I want you to expand a bit on the History section and explain more about the restoration of the Ottoman Sultanate. You do not have to write a whole essay, but I want a paragraph on how those military officers dealt with Kemalists and the secular elements of Ottoman society.

But, as I've said, it overall looks good and I will be accepting it once you've made those changes.

Flag: Flag
Capital: Tokyo
Territory: Modern day Japan
Population: 85 Million

Official Language(s): Japanese
Ethnic Breakdown: Japanese (100%)
Religious Breakdown: Shinto (70%), Buddhism (20%), Christianity (6%), Other (4%)

Type of Government: Unitary Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy
Head of State: Emperor Hirohito
Head of Government: Shigeru Yoshida
Legislature (the name of your national legislature): National Diet
Legislative Houses (if your legislature is bicameral): House of Councilors (Upper House), House of Representatives (Lower House)
Party in Power: Liberal Democratic Party
National Issues:
Anti-War Mentality- With the devastation from the Second World War and the lost of all Imperial territory, most of the Japanese populace doesn't have the stomach for another war.

US Occupation- The US Occupation is seen by many as a grave stain in Japanese History. This was the Second time that the US has forcibly forced Japan to do something against its will. Never Again.

Imperial Cult- The Emperor's declaration of peace after the atomic bombs were dropped, led to a massive increase in his popularity. Despite having much of his power stripped from him, many Japanese still see him and the Imperial family as Demi-Gods sent to protect and lead them. Many politicians must be careful of what they say, as the Emperor's influence is widespread.

Public Goals: Finish recovery from the war, try to stay out of foreign entanglements
Private Goals: Regain lost imperial territory, Become the strongest nation in East Asia

GDP (nominal): 30 Billion USD
Currency: Yen

Active Duty: 100,000
Reserve Duty: 0
Total Manpower: 100,000

Land Forces: 100,000

Air Force: 0

Naval Forces: 0

Other Military Information: With the disbanding of the Japanese Imperial Military, as well as the creation of a new constitution, Japan has no true military. The NSF is a paramilitary force designed to handle all internal affairs. Maybe in the future, Japan may once again be armed for war.

History: With the drop of the atomic bombs, followed by the surrender of Japan in 1945, the nation has been under US occupation for the past 7 years. Many reforms have been implemented, transforming Japan from an empire led by the military, to a modern Western democracy. The military was disbanded, and many of the Imperial leaders were put on trial for war crimes and executed. This was to be a new beginning for the nation.

The transition from an Empire to democracy was smooth, with many reforms being implemented, with the Emperor's blessing. The people, tired of war, worked effortlessly to try and repair their broken country; and now, after 7 years of hard work, many parts of Japan has started to alive once more. The US still occupies the nation, but many can't deny the effect that the US has in rebuilding the nation.

However, whether the changes were enough, are another question. As new threats arise everyday, Japan must now try and figure out, if it can survive. The nation is still war weary, but that may not matter in the eyes of other nations.

کشور شاهنشاهی ایران
Kešvar-e Šâhanšâhi-ye Irân

Capital: Tehran
Territory:
Image

    Legend:
  • Imperial State of Iran (orange)
  • Republic of Turkestan, Iran-influenced state (blue)
    (ignore Azerbajian, Armenia, and parts claimed by Commonwealth of Worker's Unions and Councils)

  • Population: 20,293,999 (Iran proper)

    Official Language(s): Persian
    Ethnic Breakdown: 91% "Persian" (Iranian, Kurd, Lur, Baloch, Pashtun, etc.); 8% Azeri, 2% Arab
    Religious Breakdown: 99% Shia Islam

    Type of Government: de jure Constitutional Monarchy, de facto One-party Dictatorship
    Head of State:
      Image
      Mohammad Reza Pahlavi Shah
    Head of Government:
      Image
      Mohammad Mossadegh Sadrazam
    Legislature: Imperial Majlis
    Legislative Houses: Imperial Majlis (unicameral)
    Party in Power: National Front (Jebhe-ye Melli-ye Irān)
    National Issues:
    • Ethnic Minorities: By far, Iran has been quite successful in integrating its ethnic minorities - most importantly Azeris and Arabs - into Persian culture. However, Azeris in Southern Azerbajian and Arabs along the Persian Gulf coast still poses a considerable threat to national unity, since resistance groups which operated in these regions constantly opposed the Iranian state and seek to gain independence. As such, Iran is trying almost all methods to quell the resistance and Persianize its minorities - such as enforcing the use of Persian language, resettling Kurds and Lurs into these lands, rounding up people into labor camps, or exiling them to the far reaches of Turkestan as penal labor.
    • Communism: The Iranian government outlaws communism and introduced harsh punishments for any communists, or communist sympathizers. Yet a significant Communist resistance still persists inside the country. The government has doubled down on repression and started using hars measures to combat this, including sending all known communists into labor camps, increasing SAVAK (secret police) operations and agents, and others.
    • Modernization: Inspired by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's reforms in Turkey before the war, successive Iranian governments tried to modernize the country and copy Atatürk's reforms in Iran. However, none has been as successful as Mosaddegh. Iran changed the writing system into Latin, emphasized secularism and Persian nationalism isntead of religion as the main national ideology, experienced an infrastructure and industrial boom, as well as combatting illiteracy and low education by increasing the numbe of teachers - and even importing intellectuals from abroad. Women were given important positions in government, even becoming members of the Majlis, governors, and served in the military. However, Iran's modernization efforts are far from complete. The country still needs to expand its industrial output and obtain investment from abroad - either from Germany or the United States. Iran needs to modernize even more rapidly if it wants to maintain economic growth and project geopolitical power.
    Public Goals: Unite all the Iranian peoples under the Imperial State
    Private Goals: To help Turkestan expand further north into Siberia; establish closer relationship with German-aligned Arab countries; a regional Cold War against the Ottoman Empire

    GDP (nominal): US$37,500,000,000
    Currency: Iranian Rial (IRR)
    Economic System: State Capitalism
    Major Trade Partners: Nazi Germany, India, United States, China, Egypt
    Alliance(s): Neutral

    Military Branches: Armed Forces of Iran (Nīrūhā-ye Mosallah-e Īrān), service branches:
    • Artesh/Iranian Army
    • Spahi/National Gendarmerie
    • Iranian Navy
    • Iranian Air Force
    Active Duty: 165,000
    Reserve Duty: 180,000
    Gendarmerie: 52,000
    Total Manpower: 2,100,000 (men and women eligible to be drafted)

    Artesh (Army): 130,000
    Spahi (Gendarmerie): 52,000
    Iranian Navy: 41,000
    Iranian Air Force: 11,000

    Other Military Information:
    • Army doctrine: The Iranian Army employed a doctrine of mobile warfare and superior firepower - influenced by an effective support system of heavy industry in Iran. There are three economic corridors in Iran; the first running from Southern Azerbajian to the Persian Gulf coast, the second along Kurdistan, and the third from Fars to the eastern end in Mashhad. These chains of factories, roads, railways, and supply depots ensured that mass mobilization of the Army can be done swiftly; unit and armor replacements are readily available. Iran constructs its own indigenous tank and and armored car designs, in addition to using World War II-era German armor. The mountainous terrain between iran and Turkey creates a significant obstacle to tanks, so regiments of mobile infantry and rocket artillery are stationed there instead. To the north and southwest, the Mesopotamian plain and Turkmen steppe allowed for heavy cavalry use; tank divisions are concentrated there instead. The regular Iranian soldier is better-equipped and trained than soldiers from neighboring countries, due to the smaller amount of soldiers in the Iranian army.
    • Navy doctrine: The small Iranian Navy largely plays a defensive role, with emphasis on fast attack crafts and corvettes instead of destroyers and aircraft carriers (as a blue-water navy requires). Iran maintains a series of naval forts along its Persian Gulf coast to better coordinate and supply its Navy, as well as to block and trap any foreign Navy which tries to enter the Gulf.
    • Air Force doctrine: Arguably the most advanced of all military branches, Iran saw aerial superiority as the key to control the battlefield. The Air Force's budget has been expanded greatly from its humble beginnings; even surpassing the Army at some point. Iran mainly uses German aircrafts in its military, but has increasingly invested into its domestic aircraft industry - introducing the first Iranian fighter in 1951. The Air Force's role is to mainly carry out fighting and bombing missions, in addition to support Army movement on the ground.
    • Summary:
      • The Iranian territory is the territory of the Persian homeland. No single piece of it can be lost.
      • There is little strategic depth to our line of battle. Industrial centers and oil fields lie close to the border.
      • The battle must be moved into enemy territory as soon as possible - by a combination of rapid mobilization, superior firepower, and sudden attacks.
      • The availability of significant deterrences - such as missiles, rockets, and nuclear weapons - are of paramount importance.
      • Pre-emptive strikes are the best defense.

    History: The aftermath of the Anglo-Soviet invasion of Iran in 1941 was massive unrest and resentment towards the British and Soviet troops. Despite having been installed by the British, the new Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, had deep reservations about British control that gripped Persia at that time. As a result, Reza Pahlavi allowed opposition groups, including a popular politician named Mohammad Mosaddegh, to protest the growing British control over Persian state apparatus with little oversight. This greatly irritated the British, who imposed even harsher cracrkdowns on Persian society, and even threatened to replace Reza Pahlavi with a Qajarite on the throne.

    Nazi Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union, against all doubts, proved to be swift and efficient. By the time German troops took Moscow, the Red Army had already scrambled and scattered to the corners of the Soviet Union, retreating and rebuilding. Nazi sympathizers in Iran, including Davud Monshizadeh, a Persian officer who served in the SS, began formenting rebellion against British authority. Protestors, and later on armed insurgents, led by Mosaddegh, began openly challenging British rule and forming political organizations aimed in overthrowing British authorities. The final straw came when the Royal Army gunned down several protesters in the city of Khorramabad, in response to a municipal building being converted to an Army depot. As rebellion sparked across the country, Reza Pahlavi called for the British and Soviets to vacate Iran, or risk open war. When both refused, Reza Pahlavi had the Iranian Army, now composed of veterans instead of new recruits (as in the Iranian Army before British invasion), attack British garrisons across the country. Open revolt against the British proved too hard to contain - in the words of the German ambassador: "The British and the Russians were chased away by rabbles of townsfolk, with each and every city hostile to them, forcing them to march back to the Caucasus or jump into the sea."

    The loss of Iran meant that Red Army battalions in the Volga and Central Asia were unable to receive supplies. A decisive German victory in Stalingrad brought them in control of the whole Volga basin - within weeks, the Caucasus fell to Nazi Germany. The Soviet Union's swift collapse ensured that no threat remained north of Iran. Reza Pahlavi, after the British left, appointed Mohammad Mosaddegh as Sadrazam (Prime Minister). Mosaddegh began consolidating his party and, in a surprise turn of events, turned against the democracy his party campaigned so far - outlawing the Tudeh Party and every other Communist organizations in the country. From 1943 to 1945, Mosaddegh's government launched a series of purges that not only targeted communists, but also social democrats, liberals, and even ethnic minority organizations - denouncing them as "enemies of the people" and "traitors to socialism and the homeland". The fascist SUMKA party was disbanded, with many of its members joining National Front in the aftermath.

    Germany's successful conquest of the Caucasus was well met in Iran, which saw them as a better alternative than the Soviet Union. In 1944, Germany and Iran signed a treaty of friendship - that allowed Germany to use Iranian railways and connect to Iranian ports on the Persian Gulf (such as Bandar Abbas). Iran also began developing their own armored vehicles with German help, as well as importing German tanks and trucks. Iran is a major producer of petroleum, and oil fields nationalized from British companies gave an even greater supply of petroleum - which were sold to the Germans. Iran invaded Iraq in late 1944, claiming that the military operation was a continuation of the "Anglo-Soviet-Persian War" and managed to wrestle Kurdistan away, annexing them as a province of Iran in 1945. Iraq subsequently fell under Axis influence as the old regime, led by Rashid Ali al-Gaylani, settled back to the country with Iranian and German help. On this year also the renowned Palestinian mufti Amin al-Husseini, an Arab nationalist, settled in Tehran under the invitation of Mohammad Mosaddegh. Iranian troops corssed over to French Syria in 1946, annexing Syrian Kurdistan with little trouble - Iranian soldiers being welcomed by Kurds as they arrive.

    As the Shah began to settle back from political power, Mosaddegh slowly consolidated Iran into an one-party state under National Front dictatorship. Long removed from their socialist and democratic past, the party is now a proponent of Pan-Iranian nationalism, embracing Kurds, Lurs, even Pashtuns and Balochs as well into their ranks. They implemented a policy of state capitalism; encouraging private sector development while also retaining many key industries on the hands of the state. Iran continued to modernize with the help of Germany, and later, the United States. While maintaing a close relationship with Germany, they are officially neutral - and investments from the United States are welcomed. Oil fields doubled and tripled, more roads and railways were bulit, and heavy industry began to take root on Iran's major cities. The Perso-Arabic Nastaliq script was replaced by a modified version of Latin script, which has been used to write Kurdish before. This helped to increase literacy rate and education in the country. Iran supported the independence of India from Britain in 1947, and became one of the first countries to recognize the new state.

    With the collapse of the Soviet Union, warlords took over the Socialist Republics of Central Asia and began launching attacks on one another - including incursions into Iran. The Iranian government, worried about the anarchy happening just outside their border, sponsored a group of Kemalist officers (that has been exiled from the Ottoman Empire) to overthrow a local warlord in Ashgabat with support of the Iranian Army. From 1947 to 1951, Iran supported the establishment of Turkestan - a Pan-Turkic state heavily influenced by the Kemalist ideology of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk that sought to unite the Turkic nations of Central Asia. With the conquest of Uzbekistan, the new Turkestan Republic was founded on 1952; however significant help from Iran is needed to unify and defend the country from attacks by the rump Soviet states further north.
