Fort Sumter

Postby New Inglaterra » Mon Dec 30, 2019 12:00 am

Fort Sumter, December 30th, 2019
The Counselor of Foreign Affairs walked into Consul Jennings’ office. The HRI had just joined the Depian Ocean Alliance, and a brand new age dawned. Much of the central Depian Ocean was now unified under a common military and trading bloc, one that was dedicated to mutual defense of the region from external influence. Especially Gagiumish influence. The DOA’s General Assembly also passed several new laws, including a scientific research sharing and a dissolution of trade barriers between member states. The DOA was well on its way to prosperity, peace, and order.



In domestic affairs, things were much less rosy.

In a heated meeting with his Chief of Internal Security, Director of Intelligence, and Attorney General, a significant but unsurprising revelation came to light.

“Mr. Consul, sir, we have intelligence that the Centralists were aided by the Gagiumish. We have reason to believe that Centralist state governors and Censors all knew and are complicit.” said his Chief of Internal Security, a quiet man named James Edgars.

“Well we’ve always known that. You expect me to be surprised?” replied the Consul.

“This time we got the information legally.” said his Attorney General, a short woman named Claudia Macron.

That made the Consul sit up and take notice. Information gathered in the past had always been obtained in methods technically banned by the Confederacy’s Terms of Confederation. But this time…

“So what’s the problem?” asked Jennings.

“Sir, we have reason to believe that the state militias of states under Centralist control would not respond to the order to arrest major party figures.”

“Then we’ll send in the Confederal Army. Their party is having a major convention tomorrow, in New Hastings, right?”

“Yes sir.”

“Find me the nearest army units, and deploy them. Show of force.”


A convoy of two Rhino IFVs [OOC: think a Ratel with a 40mm cannon] and four Lions [OOC: think a VXB 170] rolled down the highway towards New Hastings’ capital of the same name. Each of the Rhinos had a 40mm cannon and could hold up to eight men in the rear compartment. Both Rhinos held three soldiers with five empty seats, and the four Lions each held four passengers, a driver, and a turret gunner with a heavy machine gun.

The convoy rolled in front of the convention center. The troops in three of the Lions disembarked and formed a perimeter in front of the building. The troops in the fourth and six of the soldiers from the Rhinos entered into the building. Pushing, shoving, and threatening their way through the armed guards the soldiers served arrest warrants for the major Centralist leaders present. Not all the major leaders were there, however. Censors Rivers, Black, and Livingston, along with the governors of Cranmer and Hanover were not there. However, three governors and Censor Savoy, Rivers’ right hand man, were all arrested.

The four prisoners were dragged into one of the Rhinos along with two guards. The other four soldiers from the Rhinos piled into the other APC, and the rest of the troops got back into their Lions. The convoy began rolling out of New Hastings, amid a hail of rocks and curses by the local police.

However, about eight miles out of New Hastings a wrecked semi-truck cut off the convoy’s route, a narrow highway through the tropical forest. The lead Lion pulled off the road before a shoulder fired missile blew it up.

The turret gunner in both of the Rhinos and the remaining three Lions raked the tree line where the missile had come from. Suddenly another missile fired out and impacted one of the Rhinos, but was misfired and deflected off the well sloped armor.

Sergeant First Class Edwards, now the commander of the force after Lieutenant Cregg was killed by the missile, ordered a perimeter to be formed around the APC with the prisoners. Gunfire began to pick up as members of the New Hastings Militia advanced on the soldiers.

“They’re coming from all directions!” screamed a private as he fired his service rifle at the incoming militiamen.

“Let them eat heat!” yelled a triggerhappy turret gunner as he sent off a burst towards a squad of militia.

Sergeant Edwards took out a field radio and began screaming into the receiver, “Warlord this is Anvil 2-1 actual, we are taking small arms and RPG fire from the tree line, we are surrounded and need immediate air support, over!”

“Anvil 2-1, we have air support on the way, ETA fifteen minutes, over. Until then you are authorized to use the Rhino’s heavy cannons.”

Two jeeps of the New Hastings Militia rolled down the highway towards the stopped convoy. One of the Rhinos turned its cannon and barked out a few shots, destroying one of the jeeps and flipping the other. The other Rhino turned and shot several 40mm rounds into the tree line.

Another RPG fired and impacted and destroyed a second Lion, killing the gunner and the three soldiers taking cover behind it. A sniper killed another turret governor, eliminating the machine guns on one side of the perimeter. The militiamen rushed that side, killing more of the soldiers. The rear pintle mounted gun on one of the Rhino’s began to open up, scything down a squad of militia, but it wasn’t enough. The soldiers in the Rhinos were killed, and the one without the prisoners was destroyed when a brave militiaman jumped atop it and tossed a grenade into it's hatch.

An attack helicopter flew overhead, and unleashed missiles, blowing through the semi-truck blocking the road. Their obstacle gone, the last two Lions (and the six soldiers still alive) and Rhino peeled out. An RPG fired and hit the hovering helicopter, which went down.

Of the two Rhinos, four Lions, and 30 infantry, only one Rhino, two Lions, and 12 soldiers were still alive, but their prisoners were in custody.

Both pilots of the helicopter were captured and pulled out of the wreckage by the militia.



An aide rushed into the room where the Consul and his family were eating dinner with a panicked look.

“Sir. You’re needed in the SitRoom.”

Compulsory Consumerist State

Postby The COT Corporation » Mon Dec 30, 2019 12:49 pm

THE COT CORPORATION


Map:
Image

The Corporate Oligarchy of the COT Corporation, or as it is commonly referred to, COTCORP, is an average sized, extraordinarily capitalist and preposterously uncaring nation, or should I say "corporation".

The government is controlled by a ruthless Board of Directors, notably dominated by the Cash Family, the leading revolutionaries that took control after the socialist democrats where undermined by a terrorist group, who where suspiciously named "The followers of Ca$h". The board generally elects other board members by themselves, as they see democracy as a weakness. The Lord Grand High shade of the desert plains SuperCEO Lord Johnny Cash II, generally referred to as John, is the supreme ruler of the nation and is respected by all, as those who deem him unworthy of leadership tend to disappear.

Most foreigners seem to think the nation is a compulsory consumerist state, but really, it's just a recommended-for-your-safety kind of deal. The rich and the poor both live in fear of each other, as the poor have a significant advantage in numbers, whereas the rich have the ever growing notion of power. Some regard the nation as massively oligarchic, with enormous levels of corruption. In fact, the number one export other than automobiles - is salt, and is ridiculously exploited by the rich. Known as SALID within the nation, the rich often set up "Salidkrode" (salt plants) within the enormous salt plains of Salidgrad.

Once a corporation reaches a certain size, they are immediately bought entirely out by the Government, and the CEO may join the board of directors, without having to be elected by the current board. What happens to the corporation is hidden from the public, but the board assures that it is nothing bad.

THE STATES



First, we must address the richest areas. Note that these are out of the "heatstrkaight", the desert dunes, home to the industrial districts and the thousands of miles of slums, where the poor suffer under the rule of his majesty The Lord Grand High Shade of the desert plains SuperCEO Lord Johnny Cash II.
So back to the subject:


ESONTRIA

ESONTRIA is known in peasant slang as "The rich person's playhouse", and rightly so. It completely lacks natural resource, but is simply the perfect place for a yacht ride, or just parking your military grade helicopter. It has wonderful artificial landscape, and is famed for being one of the only places within the nation that actually looks good. Residing on the east shoreline, the water has actually allowed for growth, either that or the fact that it is prohibited to place factories within Esontria, Foridea, or Wesoda. The capital city of Salevale resides along the easternmost end of the coast, and is truly a sight to behold. The natural sloping hills that protect the state from the desert (which most late scientists believe is the reason the desert exists, as they block clouds from entering the desert) are where most of the bigger buildings are, and make a common appearance on national postcards.


FORIDEA

FORIDEA is the second largest of the "rich states", and is quite the interesting case. The western side of the state is located within the beginning of the Heatstrkaight, which would generally be considered odd if it wasn't immensely populated by the rich and famous, and the numerous private waterparks they own. It also happens to be one of the two oceanside states that is located within the Heatstrkaight, and certainly the only one that is generally inhabited. Kept along the milder side of the county, the former capital city of Howmi is generally the business place of most companies. The very north of Foridea is the housing for most military generals, and also the emergency barracks for the militia in case a certain Polish Prussian Commonwealth decides to make any unwelcome visits. Luckily for the resident soldiers, they are treated extremely well, as all special forces are.


WESODA

WESODA is the grassy, beautiful countryside of the corporation. It is fairly untouched by industry, and is home to 90% of grandparents. The reason for this is that the Heatstrkaight conveniently passes entirely away from the state, and right through the unlucky Termina instead.

Now, on to the most unfortunate of areas...


SALIDGRAD

SALIDGRAD... You probably guessed by now what it means, but I'll tell you anyway. SALTCASTLE. Although it isn't much of a castle, the sprawling Salidkrode plants give the same vibe. The entire state is made up of salt plains, easily exploited by the rich. The plains are constantly being mined by the Salidkrode, and numerous civil wars have been fought over the salt - in fact, some still are - but only between the workers and the businessmen. However, the horizon is near, as the government is having a crackdown on protests aggressive arguing.


NEW THARAM

NEW THARAM is the prominent home of the working classes, and by that logic, the slums. There are constant military patrols, and any dissenter is popped full of more holes than swiss cheese. There have been multiple uprisings, all of which have been started by politicians from the government before the revolution.


TERMINA

TERMINA is the official prison state, and home of the national "convicts". It is regarded as so treacherous that most criminals kill them self as soon as they catch wind that the police is on to them. It is so extraordinarily hot that most residents slowly burn their skin off, and the militia police never have to resort to torture, which is amazing for travel brochures.


LESLIFE

LESLIFE is known for being so uninhabitable it is the preferred method of execution for the highest crimes, and other than that, it really has no use. It has zero natural resources, and honestly, if I were head of state, I would sell it.


GADIUME

GADIUME is the military powerhouse of the COT Corporation. Due to it's high mountains and sweeping canyons, the state of Gadiume is perfect for the base of the militia. Numerous military operations start from here, including the defense trenches for in case of invasion. It is a perfect shape, as it covers the southern border of Costa Rica2, although there is no "beef" with them.


ALIYAHM

ALIYAHM is very similar to neighbour state, New Tharam. Much like Tharam, it's covered in sprawling slums, although the two states practically treat each other like entirely different countries. They run the unofficial "Five hoop games", based on a religious legend that the peasants seem to find feasible. Religion, of course, is a hoax made up by Warsaw. The nation also has many factories, nearly as many as the slums. Of course, it is too far away from the the salt plains of Salidgrad to be of any use, so this is the primary place of building for automobiles, one of the nations biggest industries. As the state borders the mountains of Gadiume, the steel foundries for the automobiles are nearly constantly filled with both metal and dead bodies, but it is hard to tell of which there is more.


MIDFORIA

MIDFORIA is one of the biggest producers of steel, with all of the overflow from the Aliyahmish foundries coming to Midforia. It is also the space where the most premium manufacturers can set up business, as the water from the northern shores is invaluable within the factories. As premium companies generally operate within Midforia, political oligarchs from the state support the government in a die-hard fashion.


BOTLELAND

BOTLELAND is the number one plastic exporter of the nation. With the channel coming along the northern shore, the state has access to the offshore crude oil pools, and hence has factories just as close. After all, the nation's motto "Buy or Die", cannot function without things to buy.


THE MILITARY


The COT Corporationion Military is very well organised, and controls 4% of the population. Emphasis on controls.

The most major military programme is the RSD-37 programme, although it isn't actually nuclear. hint hint Gagium hint hint. The RSD-37 Programme is just the major military defense system located at the top of Foridea, to defend in case warsaw decides to invade on the nation's privacy again.

The RSD 37 Division A is by far and away the largest of the Warsaw act's anti Polish Prussian Commonwealth setup, with backups from Division B and C. These are all commanded by the Secretary of Defense, Jashuo Skhmoll.

RSD 47 Is the major offense system, and is also governed by the Warsaw act, and divisions A B and C are always mobilised for attack. However, they only attack if they catch wind that Prussia Poland decides to be a bit "hostile", although it doesn't take much for the military to sense "hostility".

The most general attack craft is the famed Spyeder, the name of which was taken from the Spyker, a Prussia Poland vehicle. The Spyeder is a form of attack helicopter, but doubles as a defense vehicle. It is widely used across all military operations, including the murder of protesters restriction of political terror attacks.

Now, you've probably wondered what the "Warsaw Act" is. The Act is the entire programme dedicated to destroying or defending from the ever increasingly hostile Polish Prussian Commonwealth, and has full access to the entire military programme, if needed.

THE MILITARY IN FULL


Primary offense air vehicles:

The Spyeder: A light armoured attack helicopter, or gunship if you will. Armed with two front facing cannons, and as if it were the trademark of the design, both are attacked right under the belly of the craft. On each side it has a laser guided missile projector, filled with 5 missiles each. Rather cheap to build, only costing about 30 Million Cash Monies per unit. Currently, there are about 1000 in service, but as they are so cheap the government can build more easily. Commonly known as the S-1.

The Katslstrakcht: A heavy fighter jet, much resembling the fabled "warthog tank buster" of legend. Unlike most jets, it is heavily armoured, and weighs preposterous amounts. However, this doesn't come without perks. The Katslstrackcht is renowned for being one of the most heavily armed fighter jets within the FCN, with 5 total heavy cannons, two under each wing and one on the nozzle. It isn't armed with lead shells though, like most fighter jets, but instead carries much heavier uranium bullets, perfect for destroying strongholds or tanks. It has two infamous bomb racks, and the pilot can choose between incendiary, non nuclear mini bunker busters and electromagnetic pulse bombs, depending on the type of mission. It carries four missile projectors, each holding two missiles, specifically the national favourites: A RAM Missile, and a FS-1.

The Katslstrakcht 2: The Katslstrakcht-2, known as the K-2, is the lighter, quicker, more conventional version of the K-1. It is armed with lead bullets, the same standard 5 cannons, and four FS-1 missiles.

R.A.M Missile: The R.A.M is a radar guided anti tank missile, and is especially potent against armour. It has enough strength to punch through most but not entirely destroy a tank, and is extraordinarily deadly against ground patrols.

The Spyeder 2: Most usually known as the S-2, the Spyeder 2 is the big brother of the S-1. It is most commonly an invasion craft, used for deploying troops, quad-bikes and tanks. It is much more heavily armoured than it's little bro, and is armed only with the two missile projectors that it shares with him. However, the S-2 designer decided that the lack of offensive capability means it needed at least R.A.M Missiles, unlike the puny ones of the brother. This means that it lacks much offense, apart from if it really needs it and they have no other air support. However, this is a small price to pay for the armour.

The FS-1: The FS-1 is the standard attack missile of the COT Corporation. A generic "ramjet" missile, it can reach speeds of up to mach 1 for an extensive period of time. Most aircraft are armed with these.

Ground Vehicles:

The Pranzherkampfvagen A-1: The A-1 is the generic tank of the corporation. Armed with a single 120mm tank gun, the thing that really makes this vehicle stand out is the tracks: Heavily armoured steel plated tracks that take up the entire sides of the tank, these allow for the unhindered conquering of all terrain, whether it be the harsh deserts of gadiume military base or the milder lands of prussia poland all-consuming ice wastes of the FCN arctic territory, this tank is ready, no matter where. As they aren't so heavily armoured themselves, not considering the tracks, they are often carried into battle by S-2s.

The A-II Ant: The A-II is called the A-II; not the A-2 - This is for a reason. The tank has not one, but two cannons. Smaller than the A-1 of course, each of these cannons are 60mm pests, and easily overwhelm enemy troops. Most of these tanks are used to destroy infantry, whilst refraining from battle with other tanks. They can also set down in place and be used as anti aircraft guns, as the two smaller guns allow for more aiming agility than a large one. It gets the nickname "ant" from its small, light stature, and also because they often swarm entire strongholds; like an ant.

The B-1 EAT: The "EAT" as it is unofficially called is a severely armoured and structurally sound beast, and tears up the ground around it. It is armed with a single 152mm tank gun, as well as a forward facing machine gun, and a back facing one as well. It normally carries high explosive anti tank shells, and eats up other tanks like there's no tomorrow. It's called the "eat" for two reasons: First of all, it eats up other tanks, and second, Explosive Anti Tank. Unfortunately, the B-1 is too heavy to be carried by S-2s, so it generally stays within the land.

Sea vehicles:

The Seafairer-1: Known as the SF-1, the Seafairer-1 is a sleek, efficient, military carrier. They are an average of 350m long, and has a capacity for 75 K-class fighter aircraft. In some cases, they carry B-1 tanks, as their firepower is needed sometimes overseas. It is powered by a double nuclear fission setup, and is extraordinarily powerful.

The Seafairer-2: The SF-2 is the capital ship of the COT Corporationion navy. It is armed with 5 16"/50 cannons, as well as 400 smaller machine guns along the sides, 200 each. The 5 cannons have 2 per side, and 1 on the front. They each carry approximately 1000 troops, and traditionally, they carry 3 B-1 tanks to be deployed on beaches if the ship is beached and needs defending. It is powered by twin fission engines, which provide the necessary power to drag this beast through the sea. Equipped with sonar jamming systems and anti torpedo countermeasures, it can out-power most submarines.

The Seafairer-3: The SF-3 is an ocean invasion carrier, and is only used for the invasion of Prussia Poland other nations. They typically carry 200 troops each, and are heavily armored, so that no troops get killed. After all, what use would an invasion be if there was no-one to invade. They are not armed, and are always accompanied by:

The Seafairer-4: A powerful, commanding battleship, the SF-4 is the standard aquatic attack craft of the corporation. It is in essence a smaller version of the SF-2, but is not powered by nuclear fission. Instead of 5 16"50s, it has 3 16"45s instead. It is also equipped with the same anti-submarine equipment as the SF-2.

The SC-1: The SC-1, otherwise referred to as the Seacreeper-1, is the COT Corporations naval destroyer. Armed with an over-the-top anegine that can reach up to 45 knots, it easily outperforms most vessels. Armed with 2 16"45s, it is slightly lacking in the gun department, but of course the engine makes up for it. However, it does use high explosive anti-hull shells, so that it can make a powerful first strike before the SF-2s and 4s appear.



Submarine info coming soon.

Although the navy was very prominent in propaganda, due to recent advancements in technology the naval edge of the powerful COTCORP military has been somewhat blunted. In a recent meeting, the minister of defence and the CEO had a rushed meeting to decide what to do.

31st December, 2019:

The minister rushes into the room

"Sir, we have a crisis. There is a rumour going round that - the Polish Prussian Commonwealth has decided to MOCK our navy - despite it being mostly symbolic.

The CEO makes a short gasp, lightly lifting the dust which hadn't been touched for days.

"However, this does prove a point. As of recently, naval attacks don't yield as much power as they used to... I say we should reduce spending on the navy by 20%. Maybe that 20% could go towards the development of invasion submarines".

"Agreed, Minister. We should look into this more soon, but currently I need to announce the official military alliance with Costa Rica2. Later on, I plan on making a speech to the other FCN ambassadors. Don't tell the poles this, but this treaty was a major step in the security of our sovereignty from the commonwealth.

The Minister leaves the throne room, pleased at this advancement of the Military - but more importantly - the advancement of his salary.

December 31, 2019
Fort Anfree, Gagium

In the largest city of the United Commonwealths of Gagium, people were rejoicing, for today was the last day of the 2010s! In anticipation of the New Years' Day Parade, hundreds of thousands of spectators flocked to the city of New Anfree to attend the January 1 parade, which would feature dozens of parade floats, musical performances, and supposedly good food as well. On 4th Avenue, the street was cleared and barriers were erected for tonight's midnight performance, in which fireworks would light up the city and the nation's most famous celebrities and music performers (Who weren't paid to perform in Gladesville) would entertain the masses of the city - At least, for the masses who paid the $10 fee to enter the event. However, there were, of course, some concerns about security, mainly due to recent terrorist attacks and other outbreaks of violence experienced across the globe - However, the majority of the populace was hardly concerned, and it was business as usual (compared to every other New Years' Eve) in the city.

Despite it being the last day of the decade, a large portion of the city's workers still had to work today, and it was a regular day for a good number of people. The city was busy as always, except perhaps busier than usual due to the tourists and visitors from across the nation. However, as the workers of New Anfree went to their homes and apartments, the celebrations started - A good number of smaller fireworks displays (Some of them illegal) were already happening across the city. With bottles of champagne ready for the New Year, many people eagerly waited for the next decade to arrive, though many others fearfully dreaded its coming.

On social media and the..uh..darker web, the denizens of the internet took to their keyboards and devices to create thousands of memes commemorating the end of the decade and the beginning of the 2020s. Online mock funerals were held for several of the most prominent memes of the 2010s, soon to be forgotten in lieu of the memes of the future, and the gamers of Gagium shared their futuristic predictions.

Chatrois, Gagium

In the subtropical beach city of Chatrois, the weather was still relatively warm for December 31st. On the beach, police moved in to prepare for the Annual New Years' Eve Beach Festival, where a massive fireworks display was being set up alongside a performance stage and vendor stands. Celebrating New Years' Eve on the beach amidst darkness, however, usually attracted strange occurrences to the event..and this year was no different. White-clad self-proclaimed "Prophets of The RCS" showed up at around ten o'clock, numbering around three dozen plus several other spectators who wanted to witness the Prophets' plight. Waving RCS flags and banners, the Prophets seized control of the stage two hours before the event to lead a worship service and pray to The RCS - However, event security soon kicked the 'cultists' off of the stage and had them out of the event grounds.

Vincaract Bay, Gladesville

King Arsène Rodier and some of his aides, however, wouldn't be in Gagium to witness the turn of the decade. He was aboard the Royal Jet to Vincaract Bay International, where the newly-appointed Ambassador to Gladesville was waiting to greet the King and his other staff. King Rodier looked down at his phone mid-flight and realized that it was officially 2020 in the timezone his plane was in. A number of quiet cheers and exclamations spread around the plane as the passengers welcomed the New Year, though the cheers soon died down as they settled down for the remainder of the flight.

Prussia-Poland, Southern Military District(Kingdom of Poland)
A cold, bleak day began to dawn in Prussia-Poland.
The well-oiled machine known as the Reichswehr began to shake off its slumber. A general mobilization order began to be sent out. Troops and vehicles began rumbling south, and long-dormant defensive lines began to be inhabited and repaired once more.
Why?

The corporate bandits in the south had allied with Costa-Rica 2, and the Southern Military District was the one in charge of handling it.
The Southern Military District was one of 5 military districts in Prussia-Poland. The other ones were the Northern, Masovian, Heligoland, and Neo-Masovian military districts.
Image

The 3 pillars of the Reichswehr were thus-organization, discipline, and training. Organization got troops to where they were needed, discipline ensured they stayed there, and training made sure that they slaughtered the enemy while there.

Image

The northern and southern military districts both had 2 Field Armies at their disposal. Unlike the Northern military district, however, one of the South's Field Armies had 4 Corps at their disposal, as opposed to the usual 3. Both military districts were also home to Fleet bases of the Royal Navy-Gdansk and Gdynia, respectively. The former was home to an assortment of supply and logistical vessels, patrol vessels, missile cruisers, frigates, destroyers, and submarines, all centered around the 'minicarrier'/helicopter assault ship SMS Jan Sobeski. While not a proper carrier, it could still serve as one, with all 16 planes it could support.
The latter was home to the SMS Jagdwiga, a proper carrier boasting an air wing of 60 aircraft, and it's battlegroup, composed of 2 missile cruisers, 4 destroyers, and whatever other vessels were attached to it, whether they be submarines, cargo vessels, or even oceanographic vessels.

Both the North and South battlegroups were equipped with modern electronics, equipment, aircraft and munitions-and the Southern battlegroups was putting out to sea.




The land forces were equally well-equipped.

Your average division of the Reichswehr had 3 regiments with 4 battalions. Each divison provided various attachments to those regiments, including artillery and rotary-wing aviation-both transport and attack helicopters. Each infantry squad had riflemen, of course(armed with H&K 416 rifles), but also gunners(M249 SAW), and every man had an anti-tank weapons(usually an AT4, Javelins, or TOWs). In addition, every squad had an IFV or APC assigned to it, with both 40mm guns and anti-tank missiles. These were also supported by tanks(usually Leopard 2a5s) and fixed-winged aircraft from the Luftwaffe(which included multirole fighter aircraft such as the F-16C, capable of both establishing aerial superiorty and supporting ground operations, or attack aircraft like the SU-25, which were specialized at attacking ground targets).

But greater than all these weapons was the men who wielded them. Prussian-Poles were a doughty and grim folk, trained from birth in soldiery. Even the greenest man in the Reichswehr was already half-trained thanks to local militas and the knowledge passed from father to son, mother to daughter.


If COT wanted to fight, they would have to fight an entire nation. They would not attack anyone, of course.
For, as the old saying went; They did not want a single foot of foreign land, but they would not give a inch of their own.

Surface Tension

"My dear Bastonians," Eckard begins in a speech addressing a policy change. "I have been approached by many citizens, asking me, 'Why are you increasing our taxes without asking?' Or, 'Where is all our tax dollars going?' Well, as you all know, we have been fighting the terrorists down near the mountain ranges. This fighting has been some of the toughest our dear soldiers have seen in decades." The crowd silently nods in acknowledgment.

"With this in mind, I hope you all understand that we have raised the military budget. It is now a solid 4.6% of our GDP, an increase from 4.3%. With this new funding, we are increasing the amount of active personnel to 650,000 standard service soldiers, along with the already established 50,000 special service personnel. Along with the personnel expansion, training efforts have expanded, ensuring the absolute utmost experience, training, discipline, and general battlefield knowledge."

The crowd cheers. After all, they have been ingrained with the military stratocracy for decades upon decades. But one malcontent yells out, "But we haven't been asked! Our democracy has been subverted against our wills!" The cheers die down.

Eckard speaks once more. "I understand, sir. And I applaud your willpower and strength to keeping the Republic going strong. However, there are bigger threats to our democracy than raising taxes without a vote. The terrorists are a major threat, and if they win this conflict, our democracy will be forever extinguished, in the shadow of tyranny and authoritarianism. In that vein, I have decided to use my martial law powers to increase taxes, the military budget, and the size of the military without asking for a vote. So I understand those of you that dislike the tax increases, and those of you that dislike the fact that no votes were taken. But I assure you, there are precautions we must take to protecting the Republic, and I assure you that harsher trials face us in the near future."

The crowd is silent. For a few, long seconds, nobody moved. Then, a straggler cheers. Another begins. Suddenly, the whole crowd is up in cheers, whether from a true heart or from government-placed agents.

To be continued shortly...

MILITARY SUBMERSIBLES


Seaslider-1: The SS-1 is the favourite submarine of the "Corporate Bandits" navy. Armed with 12 torpedo launchers, 4 of them anti armour projectiles and the other 8 high explosives. They often accompany SF-3s during invasions, and can easily stop most attackers. Usefully equipped with sonar jamming technology to jam the communications of enemy submarines and hence the homing capabilities of torpedoes.

Seaslider-2: The SS-2 is the much armoured cousin of the SS-1. They are very similar to the SS-1 other than the slightly stronger engines to help with it's heavier armour. It is armed very similarly to its cousin.

SP-1: The SP-1 is called the SP for unknown reasons, but soldiers theorise it stands for "Seasploder", which would be fitting considering what it does. Only the worst soldiers and best pilots ride these, because they ram them straight into enemy vessels - but thats not all. They are packed full of high explosive anti-armour dynamite, and upon ramming they explode, and most normally completely destroy the enemy craft.

A (Hopefully) Prosperous Decade for Gladesville

Time: 00:54
Date: 1/1/20
Location: Gladesville
Unit: All Gladesmen


"Our place in a rapidly changing society is important to keep, as we hopefully tread through another Roaring 20's."

Vindalbal II broadcasted a speech at exactly midnight of GST (Gladesville Standard Time), direct from his bedroom. He talked for about an hour, before falling asleep, ending the recording. The speech contained motivational quotes, nationalist poems, and goals he wants to achieve for the decade, and to end it off, he wished all a good sleep, before going to bed.
One of the few nation's with a frightening economy, without a single car. One of the most developed nations, but our government is corrupt as fridge. Tourist hot-spot, but the ruler Vindalbal II refuses to even put basic footwear on. Environmentalist, Nationalist, Vincaracist, Gladesville. PewDiePie is also a nasty person.

Tenific Ocean-Battlegroup Jagdwiga
Numerous ships cut through the spray and surf of the wide-open ocean. At the lead were various planes running Combat Air Patrols-mostly F-14D fighters armed with a mix of AIM-120D and AIM-9X Block II missiles. These were directed both by the carrier that was the namesake of the battlegroup, and by E-2 Hawkeye AWACS aircraft.
Behind the aircraft were the destroyers. Their radar systems swept sea and sky, always watching, ready at a moment's notice to send a flurry of missiles at any target they encountered.

And they had plenty. The destroyers boasted around 96 missiles in their VLS cells. These were a mix of cruise missiles, anti-ballistic missiles, anti-ship missiles, and of course, anti-submarine missiles. The cruisers were armed in a similar fashion. However, they had more missiles-112, to be exact. In addition, they also came with 8 Harpoon anti-ship missiles.
Both had 5-inch lightweight rapid-fire guns, 20mm Close-in weapons systems, torpedoes, and SeaRAM missile launchers.
The crowning jewel of these ships, however, were the various advanced search and detection systems, including radar systems(ranging from multipurpose, to surface-search, to fire control), electronic warfare systems, sonar(both active and passive), and passive countermeasures against both torpedoes and anti-ship missiles.

Beneath the waves and further out, several submarines crept along the bottom of the ocean. These were nuclear-powered attack submarines, designed primarily to hunt down hostile vessels...and other submarines. They had at their disposal tube-launched anti-ship and cruise missiles, but their primary weapon, aside from stealth, were their torpedoes.

All of that, however, was to protect one ship-the carrier SMS Jagdwiga. She boasted an air wing of 60 fixed-wing aircraft plus helicopters. Of these, the bulk were F-14 fighters-36, to be exact. This was followed by the ship's 10 A-6F Intruder attack aircraft, and then by an assortment of other aircraft-6 EA-6 Prowler Electronic Warfare aircraft, 2 E-2 Hawkeye AWACS aircraft, and 6 S-3 ASW aircraft.

The carrier group would proceed south, torwards the COT Corporation-and then stop roughly 20 nautical miles away from it's Exclusive Economic Zone, well inside international waters. The carrier group would then back and forth, conducting anti-submarine warfare drills.

Hopefully, there were no COT submarines in the area. Otherwise, they would be subject to a vicious, demoralizing and all-around unpleasant(although ultimately non-lethal) sonar lashing until they either broke contact or managed to make it back into their territorial waters.

Preperations

Postby The COT Corporation » Fri Jan 03, 2020 3:35 am

10:30 AM, COT Corporation waters, of the north east coast of Foridea:


10 SS-1s Sliced through the harsh tropical currents flowing up to the most northerly point of Costa Rica2, albeit staying within Foridean waters. But why? Due to the recent escalation in rivalry between The Polish Prussian Commonwealth and the "Corporate Bandits", the Commonwealth moved a naval attack squad towards the coast of the corporation, but like the cowards they are, staying within international waters.

The SS-1s are followed by a meteorological amount of SF Class warships. Three SF-2 Capital vessels are escorting the submarines, or maybe it's the other way round, it's hard to tell. Approximately 15 SF-4s gather along the escort. But through the cool early morning mist, something enormous emerges. The impenetrable hull of a SF-1 carrier looms through the sea, creating sprays of froth and foam as it crashes through the blue water. The BDS Senyaiah, a sparkling jewel in the glittering crown of the COT Company's navy. An additional 2 SF-4s slip around the sides of the monster, and activate sonar scans to make sure no Commonwealth submersibles try to ambush, and if they did, they would be pounded with enough scramblers to nearly incapacitate a whole navy.

As the battalion slips through the surf, the captain of the lead SF-2, BDS Conglomerate, looks through his digital telescope. On the horizon, he spots a menacing attack battalion of the Commonwealth's. He calls for the Corporation's defence platoon to stop, and they do. Looking out on the scum that are the Commonwealth attack force, they ready their guns, but do not fire.

Following the defence force, a colourful assortment of aircraft follow. Not including the 75 K-1 fighters on the BDS Senyaiah, 50 K-2 attack craft follow behind the advancement. Circling the force, they stay in the air until they are required to be re-fuelled by the numerous re-fuelling craft around. Followed by the C Division of the RSD-37 Programme. The sky is swarming with vehicles, including the newly announced RSD-E, the electromagnetic pulse attack aircraft of the Corporation.

The Commonwealth ship's radar systems had picked up on the flotilla a long time ago, and moved accordingly.

They set a course for the east, and continued their drills.

Very conviently, though, they had stayed within missile range, although this was because they far outranged the primary guns of their adversaries.

The 50 submarines would be noticed, of course. By far they were the most dangerous part of the flotilla.

But the Commonwealth had the tools to deal with them...not like they would!
This was totally an exercise.

Totally.
Right?

Also, another roleplay rule I'm inclined to make: Before any sort of armed conflict or otherwise, both sides must send the RP moderator their full ORBATs (And realistic forces that will be deployed) and each other these as well..We'll see though

The Trans-Gladesmen Railway Project

Time: 2:30 PM
Date: 1/3/20
Location: Various
Unit: Every Gladesmen in a major city


"This project will tighten the bonds of Gladesville, and I'm as excited as you that a 6-hour long ride from Greater Alaxia to Gladesvillagen Inglaterra will soon be possible."

This afternoon, the head of the Gladesvillagen National Transportation Service, Dariqala Binasalax, announced to the world, but morely Gladesville, that a Hyperloop-style train system will be constructed alongside the nation's seldom-used Bike Inter-Duchy Superroads. The plan went through the House of Duchies earlier this Winter and was approved by 154 of the 190 dukes in the council, and was then turned into a decree from Vindalbal II. The plan states to make an easier, less gas-guzzling trans-national transport project then the already existing GladesAir, and would cost around 23 billion U. Sterlings to build, and an additional 5 million per year for maintenance. The project will also take about 7 years to build.

"This is the future of Gladesville, trust a member of House Vincaract on that."

Vindalbal II approved the plan on New Year's day, stating the following.

"This is how I keep a promise to my people. I promised them a golden era for our people, and a modernized connection of all of our population centers to eachother would fit exactly within that goal. This project will not only help us with our goals of environmentalism, but also help tie the far-flung areas of Greater Alaxia and G. Inglaterra closer to the Monarchs. Granted, this will be expensive and time-consuming, but if it means that our people are happy and productive, I'll defend it."

The Directorate

Postby New Inglaterra » Sat Jan 04, 2020 12:13 am

The Directorate, January 4th, 2020
Senator Jennings awoke to the sound of a ringing phone. “I thought the midnight phone calls ended with my Consulship.” he thought. As a former Consul he was entitled to become a Senator. He answered his phone and found it to be the Senate’s Sergeant-At-Arms.

“Johnson? What the devil are you calling me for!”

“Sorry Cons- Senator Jennings. You’re needed at City Hall immediately sir.”

[hr][/hr[

45 minutes later…
Senator Jennings strode into Ville du Père City Hall. The capital of the State of Sainte Vierge, Ville du Père was serving as the temporary capital of the (true) Government of the Confederated States, with City Hall serving as a temporary meeting place of the Confederacy’s government.

So much had happened in the last several days. On January 1st, Censor Gudreau was sworn in. On January 2nd, a bomb exploded while the Censoral Tribunal was meeting. The Centralist delegation was conveniently not in the building yet, and was spared (aside from Censor Savoy, who was arrested at the time). The entire Tribunal was killed aside from Censor Achille Caron, who assumed the office of Consul, stating that as Censor Rivers, a Centralist, was under indictment, he was prohibited from serving as Consul, according to the Terms of Confederation. Consul Caron ordered the immediate arrests of all Centralist governors and Censors not currently indicted, but state militias once again refused to respond to orders, and after the fiasco on December 30th, Consul Caron was hesitant to send in Confederal troops.

Censor Rivers was not. He declared himself to be Consul Rivers, and Confederal Army troops loyal to him and members of the East Charlotte State Militia invaded and seized the capital. The south of the nation was banding under the banner of Consul Caron’s government, while the north was joining the Rivers’ government.

However as fate had it, on the third of January Consul Caron had ordered New St. James quietly evacuated, with the Senate and Popular Assembly (the members who still showed up) entering the most Pro-Government (now becoming slowly known as Loyalists) major city. Now the ex-Consul and his family were shacked up in a hotel room across the country from his West Charlotte townhome.

“Oh good. You’re here Will.” said Senator John McAllen, the former governor of Cranmer.

“Do you know what is happening John?”

“Something big is going to happen. The Consul has called for an emergency meeting of the Convention.”

Another senator, Sarah House, the Speaker of the Senate (and the first woman to hold the title as well) walked up and said in a grave voice; “They’re declaring a Directorate.”

“What? A Directorate? One hasn’t been declared in ove-” began Jennings.

“Seventy years. I know.” finished Speaker House.

In times of grave crisis, the Convention of the Confederation could declare a Directorate, headed by a Director. The Director was given absolute power over the armed forces and political systems until the crisis was resolved.

“So, two thirds vote?” asked Jennings.

“Three fifths. The Consul is consenting to be overridden so there is a lower threshold. Now sit down, I’ll be announcing soon.” replied the Speaker.

Senator Jennings sat on a bench with his colleague from West Charlotte. The other three members of the West Charlotte delegation were Centralists, and were currently meeting in New Saint James. A gavel sounded as Speaker House spoke;

“This emergency session is called into order. The matter at hand is the appointment of a Director for a period no longer than six months or until the crisis is resolved, whichever comes first. We will now hear nominations.”

A pudgy Federalist, Senator Jennings recognized him as a former governor of Arcadia, stood up and boomed in a French accent “I nominate General Ashton Keeling for the position.” Cries of “second” rang out.

Jennings whistled. Ashton Keeling was an… interesting choice. Commander of the CSNI’s forces in the rebellious Northern Territories, General Keeling had a reputation of a distaste for politics and an affinity for direct and overwhelming action, perfect for a Director. Rumors had it that General Keeling would run for a Censorship and possibly even try to be elected Consul in 2025. Jennings thought that his career may have received a massive boost.
“All in favor?” asked Speaker House. Both chambers of the Convention cried out in a resounding “Aye”.

General, now Director, Keeling walked to the podium. He was a tall and strapping man, around 6 foot 3, graying hair, and a cold blue eyes. He spoke in a calm but cold voice befitting a man of his status.

“I love democracy. I love our Confederacy. I will lay down the power granted to me today when this crisis has ended. And as my first act with this new authority, I am placing all state militias under direct control of the Confederal Army, to counter the increasing threat of the Centralists.”

Both chambers applauded his remarks as he stepped down from the podium. Senator Jason Garrett of Hanover seemed to clap particularly hard.

The Convention had their Directorate, but would it be enough?

A Meet & Greet at VBI


Time: 09:00
Date: 1/4/20
Location: Vincaract Bay International
People: King Arsène Rodier and Vindalbal II


"Shoot, somebody should've told me that they were here! Now I gotta book it across the city to make it before anymore time is lost!"

This morning, the sleepish Vindalbal II realized that the representatives from Gagium arrived in Gladesville 3 days ago. He scalded the entire House of Duchies before hopping on his bike and pedalling from the palace to Vincaract Bay International. He got several red lights, but ignored all of them, yelling at the audience; "YOUR ROYALTY COMING THROUGH!" before stopping at his normal coffee shop and getting his morning mix, before blitzing to VBI. When he got there, he didn't bother following the law of parking your bike out front, before riding his bike right through the front door.

"I'm so sorry for this, how about we do a meet and greet to warm relations?"

Arsène Rodier accepted the idea of the meet and greet, and allowed Vindalbal II to start first. So Vindalbal II went on and said.

"Alright. Of course my name is Vindalbal II, no need to beat that bush, now I can tell you some more facts about my people. As I've heard from your speech to the people for this summit, we are an environmentalist state, and also have taken that to some more extreme levels then some other nations you've seen, but that's just a thing that I guess, defines the Gladesvillagen Culture. That also means we've had a long love-hate relationship with mass retail, but as of right now, we've entered more of a hating phase. We're also rather scientifically advanced, which if you combine our environmentalism, we can sell bio-degradable plastics to you."

King Arsène Rodier took notes on his tablet.

"We've also solved the Alaszaqer Immigrant Crisis rather peacefully, with Prussia-Poland just pulling the soldiers out after the Prussian-Polish general telling all of the military soldiers stationed at Alaszaq that we're just going to give them back after a decade, which was what we told them. Which brings us to the Military base you wanted to build in Gladesvillagen Inglaterra, to counter New Inglaterra. Yes, we are absolutely wanting that base, because one unrestricted neighbor is enough, let alone two. Now this sound's unorthodox, but how about we walk out of VBI so I can show you the work of my government officials?"

King Arsène Rodier agreed, and walked through Vincaract Bay's main street.

(OOC: Please don't roleplay what my character does, agrees to, or anything. Only roleplay as your own character please unless I say you can. I'll let it pass tho.)

Vincaract Bay, Gladesville

The King took the idea of taking a stroll with Gladesville's leader in public with a grain of salt, though he did have his royal guards, who he did trust with his life..Rodier finally consented. He could use some exercise, anyways - He was usually too busy with diplomacy, government affairs, or the like to work out..And yet here he was exercising whilst participating in diplomacy and government affairs. The rest of his staffers went to their rooms for the summit which would occur in the future, and left alone (I mean, asides from the crowds of pedestrians), Rodier began speaking.

"Inglaterra..Yes, yes. It is in our interest to establish a military presence in Gladesville for the defense and prosperity of your nation and the benefit of ours. Their nation's expansion in recent years is concerning, and I have little reason to believe that it will come to a halt."

Rodier looked around the street and city before smiling. "Ooh. The decorations, they're fantastic."

"I appreciate your appreciation of the decorations, our government officials spent all day decorating the parts of the city I wanted to show you, including the House of Duchies, Vincaract Bay Museum, Carchter I City Park, and of course, my family's palace. Now onto the base in Gladesvillagen Inglaterra, I'm perfectly onboard with this. As someone who often studies history in my free-time, I'm well aware of New Inglaterra's vast expansions off their continent within about, the last decade. I've even got some lands that are populated mostly by Inglaterrans, and the blood of nationalism would be tickled pink if an invasion and capitulation of that land was to occur, and also if my blood of nationalism started to boil, it would be a nuclear war."

Vindalbal II continued walking down the street, before pointing at a building and saying, "That's my favorite coffee shop. The staff aren't even government officials, but a mom and pop shop.".

...

Hon. Naomi Proulx (National/Greater Charlotte): "... All-in-all Mr. Speaker, as Minister for the Environment, I am proud of the Commonwealth's positive strides towards combating climate change. Because this government believes nearly the entire economy depends on a healthy environment we have implemented a realistic yet planet saving climate policy. We've exceeded the carbon goals set forth by the Environmental Ministry and further hope that with the help of green technology and clean natural gas, to cut our current emissions in half by 2030. We passed the largest public lands spending bill ever so the San Carlos Islands' beautiful National Parks and Forests can be enjoyed and conserved by our population for years to come. Finally, we put healthy regulation on the natural gas and mining industries so that they can no longer get away with polluting our waters and lands, while not threatening a single blue collar job in those industries. Our reforms may not be as bold as what you hear from the opposition, but they're common sense and they're working... With that I yield back to the chair."

Rt. Hon Zheglov Larionovich (Conservative/Dvina County): [Russian-Translated] "I thank the Honorable gentlewoman from Greater Charlotte... The Honorable Gentleman from Petersland is recognized for cross examination."

Hon. Dmitry Viktorov (New Right/List): [Russian-Translated] "Thank you Mr. Speaker... I wish to ask the Minister for the Environment why the government is going through all these reforms at home, when the real polluters are the third world countries? I yield to the Minister."

Hon. Naomi Proulx (National/Greater Charlotte): "Well Mr. Speaker, the gentleman from Petersland is forgetting three things. First of all, third would countries look up to developed nations like the San Carlos Islands. When we set a precedent of protecting the environment developing nations follow. Thus if we want them to cut down on their emissions, we have to be the spearhead for that. Second, the San Carlos Islands is piloting a solution for this problem which is both pro-growth in those countries and pro-environment and that is green tech sales. We're helping these countries cheaply get their hands on wind and solar power, or clean coal, environmentally friendly ag-tech, etc. Finally Mr. Speaker, the gentleman forgets that the Ministry for the Environment is working closely with other nations to enter into cap and trade treaties with nations willing to undertake that. So at the end of the day it's clear to see that the government shares the gentleman's concerns, and that we're doing something about it... I yield back to the chair.

Rt. Hon Zheglov Larionovich (Conservative/Dvina County): [Russian-Translated] "The Honorable gentlewoman from Kaien County."

Hon. Karen Ivanova (Ecological/Kaien County) "Hello... I simply want to know why the government isn't doing more to end the climate emergency. Why aren't we going net zero? I yield to the Minister."

Hon. Naomi Proulx (National/Greater Charlotte): "Well Mr. Speaker, what the honorable gentlewoman doesn't understand that this government is trying our best to protect the environment and fight climate change without harming any Islanders in the process. Where as Representatives in the opposition would like to put thousands out of work and destroy the Commonwealth's GDP in the name of "saving the planet"; the Coalition government seeks to implement common sense legislation that may not go as far as some people want, but does a pretty good job anyway. That's because we believe it's unfair to harm our citizens in the name of a radical climate agenda... I yield back to the Chair."

Rt. Hon Zheglov Larionovich (Conservative/Dvina County): [Russian-Translated] "Questioning for the environmental minister has ended. Next on the agenda is the Foreign Minister's report."

Hon. Aleksey Volkov (Conservative/Portage Bay): [Russian-Translated] "Hello Representatives. It's safe to say that the San Carlos Islands maintains a leadership position across the world, be it on economics or trade or even the environment as the gentlewoman from Greater Charlotte who spoke before me just mentioned. However, this position cannot be maintained if we fail to pursue closer relations with our greatest allies such as the United Commonwealths of Gagium and our neighbors across the sea the Republic of the Furbish Islands. Closer alliances equate not only a stronger and richer San Carlos Islands but a more stable region and world... I stand down to questioning."

Rt. Hon Zheglov Larionovich (Conservative/Dvina County): [Russian-Translated] "The honorable gentleman from Petersburg Hills."

Hon. Petro Zhukov (Social Democratic/Petersburg Hills) [Russian-Translated] "Thank you Mr. Speaker. I want the Minister to tell me how we are going to achieve this?"

Hon. Aleksey Volkov (Conservative/Portage Bay): [Russian-Translated] "There are multiple different things the Ministry for Foreign Affairs has planned Mr. Speaker. For starters, we need to re-kinder our embassy program. Our missions across the world have sat there poorly funded and haven't been the most effective in fostering the Commonwealth's interests. Furthermore we are looking into some trade deals and military treaties with these countries in order create more cooperation.

Rt. Hon Zheglov Larionovich (Conservative/Dvina County): [Russian-Translated] "Thank you Minister. With that, we adjourn for today."

The Warsaw Act Headquarters, Central Gadiume, 16:30

The Secretary of defence, Jashuo Skhmoll, walks out of his private jet into the sweltering heat of Gadiume airport. He'd had a busy week, and needed a rest. however, now was not the time to have one.

He was visiting the fleet admiral, Sir Michael Shore. Recently he had been concerned with a recurring problem: Battleships. As technology constantly advanced, battleships were rendered more and more useless. Heck, A submarine could take out an entire fleet in this day and age! And with the government bill going through to remove 20% of government funding from the battleships, the secretary had been attending a shit-tonne of meetings. Now, he had been called on by the Admiral, as to discuss what the email had called "urgent matters"

His rented luxury car, the Serra VXI, brought him across the gaping canyons of Gadiume with ease. Although he was the secretary of defence, he hadn't ever been to Gadiume before, the number-one military headquarters of the country. Arriving outside the official home of the Admiral, (of course it wasn't his usual home, Gadiume was far too Hot) he walked inside the entrance way, and was disturbed by just how many security cameras there were. The Admiral greeted him outside, and brought him in for the meeting.

"So, Mr. Skhmoll, you may be wondering why I have brought you here."

"Yes, I do, if I may. However, I actually have some matters of my own to discuss with you, so this was a brilliant chance."

"Ah, good. Well, as you know, the Supreme Leader had a meeting with some people, strangely not including me, about the navy. However, during this meeting, someone proposed the STUPID idea to practically remove battleships from our navy. And - don't tell ANYONE I said this - the Supreme Leader agreed. I don't think you were at this meeting, Mr. Skhmoll, but I was wondering, do you know who's idea it was?" A guard in the back of the room tightened his grip on his gun.

Jashuo knew full well that it was he who has proposed the bill, and that it had not been a meeting, it had been a private conversation between himself and the Leader. He began to sweat, as the guard in the back looked extraordinarily ripped.

"No, I don't, Sir." Said Jashuo shakily. "Why?"

"Well, you see..." began the Admiral "The bill threatens what the navy means to most people. Strong battleships, that motivates people! Personally, I think the Supreme Leader made a mistake." Jashuo was taken aback. Even the guard showed a hint of surprise. NOBODY disagreed with the Supreme Leader. The Admiral Continued "I don't blame the Supreme Leader. I just think whoever proposed the idea, should, how do I put this, cease to exist."

This shook Jashuo. He hadn't really ever been in such danger, especially when the Admiral did not intend him to be in it, as the Admiral thought it was someone else. If the Admiral was to catch wind of him being the person who proposed it, he would be in deep trouble. "Oh, I'm sure. In fact, I think I might have something to help you, back in my car. Follow me."

They walked bak to the car, where the Chauffeur was waiting. Jashuo signalled to him, and quite without warning, the Chauffeur pulled out a T-15 Semi Automatic Rifle and peppered the Admiral so full of holes that he looked just like the prussian poles would if they dared attack the coast. The Admiral's guard rushed forward, but was to slow for the Chauffeur. He got a bullet right through the temple, killing him instantly. The Chauffeur quickly grabbed a grenade and tossed it into the entrance of the house, which exploded and looked quite like the crater of a Polish Prussian Commonwealth missile, albeit a bit smaller, but the tabloid press would't notice that.

In recent times with tensions increasing with Bastion and the economy suffering a minor recession the King’s Fascist Party has gained lots of support. This party is supporting a self proclaimed king that is fascist to become the new leader. In some cities such as Osla in the east many riots and skirmishes between KFP supporters and the DRP(Democratic Republican Party),who is currently in control. These riots have even been deadly with the Blizzard Massacre being the worst. In the Blizzard Massacre over 100 protesters were killed and 300 were taken prisoner. These riots have only brought more support to the KFP. In a recent speech made by President Jon he says,”Snow Hill is strong as ever but there are some blemishes. I hope countries will realize that the democratic government must stay”.

"I appreciate your appreciation of the decorations, our government officials spent all day decorating the parts of the city I wanted to show you, including the House of Duchies, Vincaract Bay Museum, Carchter I City Park, and of course, my family's palace. Now onto the base in Gladesvillagen Inglaterra, I'm perfectly onboard with this. As someone who often studies history in my free-time, I'm well aware of New Inglaterra's vast expansions off their continent within about, the last decade. I've even got some lands that are populated mostly by Inglaterrans, and the blood of nationalism would be tickled pink if an invasion and capitulation of that land was to occur, and also if my blood of nationalism started to boil, it would be a nuclear war."

Vindalbal II continued walking down the street, before pointing at a building and saying, "That's my favorite coffee shop. The staff aren't even government officials, but a mom and pop shop.".

Vincaract Bay, Gladesville

"Are the staff usually government officials in these types of businesses? It is good to hear of your defiance to New Inglaterra's recent attempts at violently expanding their influence through blockades and arresting political opponents in their homeland...Nuclear war? I wasn't aware that Gladesville possessed nuclear weapons, or the like..Though, I have come here with a certain..proposal, regarding our militaries. I seek to expand on this further at the negotiating table, though I will hint at this..Our armed forces has some unused surface to air missiles that could form a shield almost over Gladesville. Figuratively, of course, and yet..Give it some thought, friend."

Naval Base Forguard, Westmoreland Commonwealth, Gagium

Naval Base Forguard, located in northeastern Westmoreland Commonwealth, was the largest naval base established along the Gagiumish mainland, housing nearly three fourths of Gagium's surface fleet and being home to over 15,000 permanent navy personnel and several thousand more sailors who were currently assigned to one vessel or the other. Naval Base Forguard has roughly six miles of piers and wharfs jutting out from the main portion of the base, which is home to a navy-operated airfield as well as several dozen buildings oriented towards serving or housing personnel stationed at the base, the largest of which being the base's Future Horizons Command Center, a three story brick office complex that supposedly also housed a vast underground command center.

In regards to the ships permanently based at Naval Base Forguard, the only two Carrier Defense Groups in the Gagiumish Navy were currently moored alongside the piers of Forguard. Both Carrier Defense Groups, the First and the Second, each consisted of one Horton class aircraft carrier, with a maximum capacity of 38 aircraft (OOC think Charles de Gaulle class rn), 6 destroyers (OOC think Kongō-class), and 3 frigates (Think La Fayette-class) - A total of roughly 4,000 personnel served in each Carrier Defense Group. Apart from these, two Destroyer Squadrons of 8 destroyers and 2 frigates each (Roughly 2,800 personnel per squadron) were also based at the naval station, along with five patrol craft.

Though currently moored to the piers and stationary, the ships of the First Carrier Defense Group were ordered to round up their sailors and prepare for departure within the next day. The sailors of the ships of the Defense Group were quite accustomed by now to shore leave, were most dismayed at the order to leave their stations on the ground and board their ships with the appropriate equipment in anticipation of departure and mobilization - However, they all knew that it was inevitable with the increasing tensions around the world. Though the destination of their ships was unknown to all but the higher command levels of the fleet, they had heard of news of a naval standoff ongoing south near COTCORP.

Furby Island
6 January, 2020


One of the wealthiest Furbish companies, Google, owns the world’s most popular video sharing cite, called YouTube. In the platform, people are allowed to create accounts, called channels and upload videos about anything. A rather controversial channel is called Parker University, founded by Emmanuel Parker, which makes five minute videos about various topics, often involving modern political issues or the history of the world. While it has many supporters, others accuse the channel of being far right propaganda. They have been known to get facts wrong, or simply leave out facts and taking other facts and statistics out of context, to push a far right agenda across. Despite the criticisms, several million people are subscribed to the channel, and each video receives hundreds of thousands of views and tens of thousands of likes, but response videos are released quickly. The comments below the video often show people agreeing, but in more controversial videos people attempt to debunk parts of the video, if not the entire video.

The most recent video the channel released is on the Stillewoudoorlog, which was narrated by a man named Dennis Carter, who in the video was introduced as a military historian. He wrote multiple history books, and one on the Stillewoudoorlog is called “The Politically Incorrect History of the Stillewoudoorlog”. In the book, he claims that Furby Island was doing good in its invasions, and portraying native tribes as the bad guys in the story. His book was criticized by most historians for leaving out facts in places or lying at times. He wrote many more books, all of then beginning with “The Politically Incorrect History of...”, as a way of mocking the politically correct culture that is supposedly being promoted in the internet. But currently he was not writing books, instead standing in front of a blue screen on a video that will be watched by thousands. He faced the camera, and began speaking.

“Following its civil war in the early 1800s, Furby Island, as the story goes, began to oppress the native population. One by one, tribe by tribe, the natives were killed off and had their land taken by Furbish settlers. The survivors were sent away to prison camps in faraway islands, never to see their homes again. This conflict was later named the Stillewoudoorlog, or ‘war of the silent forest’. At least, that is what progressives and other leftists teach about the war. However, it is not even close to the reality of the conflict.” Leftism is something that many Parker University speakers say is the cause of modern problems, and they are trying to destroy Furby Island. What he listed was the reality of the conflict, which is taught or not, depending on the school district and teacher. To this day, many descendants of the natives who went through the conflict demand and an apology and reparations from the Furbish government for what happened, but both have not been given.

“For one, the Furbish at the time did not see themselves as conquerors, but as liberators, as bringers of freedom. Furbishmen believed their cause was a moral one. In the lands they came to, they brought peace, and introduced their style of democracy. In that sense, they were not multiculturalists.” This was the excuse used by the Furbish government at the time, and used by the far right and other nationalists in the present day. While this is true, people argued that these ends did not justify the means, especially the numerous massacres of the Stillewoudoorlog.

“Many tribes had been warring for centuries, only for hostilities to be ended by the Furbish. Equal rights were given to all people who lived under them. This included the right to vote, and freedom from slavery. For the first time, native tribesmen were able to have a say in who governed them. Whether a tribe peacefully joined Furby Island or fought, all had equal rights.” The goal of the Stillewoudoorlog was to put all land in the hands of Furby Island. A tactic used to help accomplish this was settling Furbishmen near villages, and turning them into Furbish style towns and cities. The army made sure tribes would not fight each other, as this would cause instability. But there have been many recorded times where warring tribes stopped to face the Furbish threat, and arguably this was more effective at ending century long conflicts than suppressing any conflict. To also integrate tribes into Furby Island, the people were made into Furbish citizens, if they were not captured and sent to a prison camp. They at that point were equals to the Furbish settlers, and Furbishmen elsewhere, but Carter failed to mention that many tribes adopted a democratic system before the Furbish arrived.

“In one village, Captain Albin Vlemming was confronted by a priest when he ordered all human sacrifices to end. He responded with ‘It may be your custom to sacrifice people to your gods, but it is our custom to hang those who do the sacrifice. If you insist on following your custom, we will insist on following ours.’ Human sacrifice soon stopped.” This was a mild example of Furby Island suppressing cultures. Often times it involved religious sites and texts burned. Even in that village, Vlemming, who was a sociopath, did more to suppress their culture than politely asking. Missionaries often arrived with the settlers hoping to convert the natives, and often did not agree with ending cultures. In that village, as with many others, the only remnant of their language from earlier than the eighteen hundreds are translations of the Bible.

“The Furbish also introduced modern technology, which improved the lives of everyone. Furbish settlements were connected by railroads which made travel and the transportation of goods easier. The natives were given the same access to modern medicine as Furbishmen.” Carter is correct about the lives of natives improving. But he failed to mention a key fact about the Furbish railroads. The army, seeing a need to connect settlements and military bases, built railroads between every one. But while these railroads were planned out by Furbish surveyors and engineers, the people who built it were native prisoners of war. They were brought in to work in the harsh conditions of the jungle, being watched by soldiers who regularly rotated. All of these railroads are used for passenger and freight service in the present day, and not many people care about who they were built by.

“The Furbish still receive criticism for their supposed oppression of the native populations, but the conflict was not one-sided. The natives outnumbered the Furbish by many times, meaning there was no way for the Furbish to win on their own.” In many battles, Furbish technology and tactics helped them overcome a numerical advantage. Sometimes, they had native allies, but sometimes they were on their own. More often than not natives aligned against the Furbish instead of with them.

“In many battles, they had help from their own native allies, who voluntarily joined the Furbish Republic. For example, in the Kanton Uprising of 1845, the Furbish victory can be attributed to Alepati, a native guide. He began as a spy, taking advantage of the Furbish policy letting every native leave their tribe and live inside Furbish territory as a citizen; this was Furbish policy since the beginning. After living amongst and spying upon the Furbish for a while, he returned to his tribe. However, he later went back to the Furbish, asked soldiers to meet their commanding officer, and told them every plan the natives had.” Alepati, in his betrayed, helped the Furbish in Kanton take over more land and defeat the chief of how tribe. But the war was bloody, seeing many massacres of native soldiers and civilians, including on the first day, ordered by then lieutenant Vlemming. Alepati was also the exception rather than the rule. Native guides like him, who knew so much information like plans, were few. The best most Furbish invasions had was a single translator.

“Elsewhere in the country, the several month long Siege of Fort Hillen ended in what some have called a massacre. Hundreds of natives may have died, but so did many Furbish soldiers That hardly sounds like a massacre.” The Furbish commander in the siege was Gabriël van Aarle, another officer who people believe is a sociopath. He commanded a division, from the city. In 1867, two of his brigades were on a campaign, then were overrun by a large native force. Part of his last brigade was also wiped out. The city was completely surrounded, supplied by armored train from the single railroad leading out of it. Over the course of a few months, more reinforcements were sent, completely replenishing van Aarle’s division. The whole time, he assessed when and where an attack to break the siege will take place. He chose a spot, but while he was still preparing, one of the armored trains derailed. A large group of natives rushed the train, and van Aarle ordered an assault. He was ill-prepared, but won, and massacred all the natives who took part to get revenge for the siege and the events leading it. He got the medal of honor and a promotion following the battle, which was widely accepted to be a massacre.

“Following the end of the last revolts in the early 1900s, the leader was brought before Parliament and Prime Minister Sebastian Dawson. He wanted a republic, but Dawson, who was fluent in his language, reminded him that his tribe had no word for republic, that it was an idea given to them by Furby Island.” This argument is a fallacy. The natives did not have to invent a republic to deserve their own. The native leader, who tried pointing out the ridiculousness of it was ignored, and later executed for high treason.

“Today, where once were warring native tribes, Furby Island is a fully developed republic in the jungle. I’m Dennis Carter, from Parker University.” He faded out, and the voice of Emmanuel Parker came on, requesting a donation from the viewer. YouTube has been infamous recently for demonetizing videos, making it so ads can not play on them, and putting videos in restricted mode, meaning it can not be viewed by young kids or people who do not want to. Parker University has had many of its videos demonetized and restricted, despite none of them being full of content like nudity or gore, which would have them deserve to be placed there.

The comments below the video have not reacted well. The video has about an equal number of likes and dislikes, which is more than the amount of dislikes videos from the channel usually have. In the comments, people ranged from rebutting individual points to, to posting about who the speaker is, and some claiming the channel is racist. When sorted by new, a few people supporting the video and channel could be seen. Currently, the top comment, sitting at over three hundred likes, reads “I’m betting their next video will be about the shit going on in New Inglaterra and overwhelming support towards the totally not fascist centralists.”.
