It is 2019. The middle east is a powder keg. All nations look at eachother with distrust because of religion, ethnical allegiance or fear for imperialism. The major powers of the world look at the middle east to gain more influence. With the borders changed by war and many new or rebourn nations is the tension in the middle east higher than ever. The recent years have showed rivalry and wars. It seems that war is, again, inevitable, although many still call for diplomacy. Not any of the nations wants to appear weak and all want to win the war when it comes. It is time for us to see what the future will bring us. It is time to see who will rule the middle east from now on.

The Republic of India is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world. Bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Bengal on the south-east, it shares land borders with Pakistan to the west; China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; in addition, India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.

Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism—originated here, whereas Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam arrived in the 1st millennium CE and also helped shape the region's diverse culture. Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom from the mid-19th century, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi.

The Indian economy is the world's tenth-largest by nominal GDP and third-largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). Following market-based economic reforms in 1991, India became one of the fastest-growing major economies; it is considered a newly industrialised country. However, it continues to face the challenges of poverty, corruption, malnutrition, inadequate public healthcare, and terrorism. A nuclear weapons state and a regional power, it has the third-largest standing army in the world and ranks ninth in military expenditure among nations. India is a federal constitutional republic governed under a parliamentary system consisting of 29 states and 7 union territories. India is a pluralistic, multilingual, and a multi-ethnic society. It is also home to a diversity of wildlife in a variety of protected habitats.

India comprises the bulk of the Indian subcontinent, lying atop the Indian tectonic plate, and part of the Indo-Australian Plate. India's defining geological processes began 75 million years ago when the Indian plate, then part of the southern supercontinent Gondwana, began a north-eastward drift caused by seafloor spreading to its south-west, and later, south and south-east. Simultaneously, the vast Tethyn oceanic crust, to its northeast, began to subduct under the Eurasian plate. These dual processes, driven by convection in the Earth's mantle, both created the Indian Ocean and caused the Indian continental crust eventually to under-thrust Eurasia and to uplift the Himalayas. Immediately south of the emerging Himalayas, plate movement created a vast trough that rapidly filled with river-borne sediment and now constitutes the Indo-Gangetic Plain. Cut off from the plain by the ancient Aravalli Range lies the Thar Desert.

The original Indian plate survives as peninsular India, the oldest and geologically most stable part of India. It extends as far north as the Satpura and Vindhya ranges in central India. These parallel chains run from the Arabian Sea coast in Gujarat in the west to the coal-rich Chota Nagpur Plateau in Jharkhand in the east. To the south, the remaining peninsular landmass, the Deccan Plateau, is flanked on the west and east by coastal ranges known as the Western and Eastern Ghats; the plateau contains the country's oldest rock formations, some over one billion years old. Constituted in such fashion, India lies to the north of the equator between 6° 44' and 35° 30' north latitude and 68° 7' and 97° 25' east longitude.

India's coastline measures 7,517 kilometres (4,700 mi) in length; of this distance, 5,423 kilometres (3,400 mi) belong to peninsular India and 2,094 kilometres (1,300 mi) to the Andaman, Nicobar, and Lakshadweep island chains. According to the Indian naval hydrographic charts, the mainland coastline consists of the following: 43% sandy beaches; 11% rocky shores, including cliffs; and 46% mudflats or marshy shores.

Major Himalayan-origin rivers that substantially flow through India include the Ganges and the Brahmaputra, both of which drain into the Bay of Bengal. Important tributaries of the Ganges include the Yamuna and the Kosi; the latter's extremely low gradient often leads to severe floods and course changes. Major peninsular rivers, whose steeper gradients prevent their waters from flooding, include the Godavari, the Mahanadi, the Kaveri, and the Krishna, which also drain into the Bay of Bengal; and the Narmada and the Tapti, which drain into the Arabian Sea. Coastal features include the marshy Rann of Kutch of western India and the alluvial Sundarbans delta of eastern India; the latter is shared with Bangladesh. India has two archipelagos: the Lakshadweep, coral atolls off India's south-western coast; and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, a volcanic chain in the Andaman Sea.

The Indian climate is strongly influenced by the Himalayas and the Thar Desert, both of which drive the economically and culturally pivotal summer and winter monsoons. The Himalayas prevent cold Central Asian katabatic winds from blowing in, keeping the bulk of the Indian subcontinent warmer than most locations at similar latitudes. The Thar Desert plays a crucial role in attracting the moisture-laden south-west summer monsoon winds that, between June and October, provide the majority of India's rainfall. Four major climatic groupings predominate in India: tropical wet, tropical dry, subtropical humid, and montane.

The economy of India is the tenth-largest in the world by nominal GDP and the third-largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). The country is one of the G-20 major economies, a member of BRICS and a developing economy that is among the top 20 global traders according to the WTO. India was the 19th-largest merchandise and the 6th largest services exporter in the world in 2013; it imported a total of $616.7 billion worth of merchandise and services in 2013, as the 12th-largest merchandise and 7th largest services importer. India's economic growth slowed to 4.7% for the 2013–14 fiscal year, in contrast to higher economic growth rates in 2000s. The Indian Finance Ministry projects the GDP growth for fiscal 2014 will be 5.5%. IMF projects India's GDP to grow at 5.6% over 2014-15. Agriculture sector is the largest employer in India's economy but contributes a declining share of its GDP (13.7% in 2012-13). Its manufacturing industry has held a constant share of its economic contribution, while the fastest-growing part of the economy has been its services sector - which includes construction, telecom, software and information technologies, infrastructure, tourism, education, health care, travel, trade, banking and other components of its economy.

The post independence-era Indian economy (from 1947 to 1991) was a mixed economy with an inward-looking, centrally planned, interventionist policies and import-substituting economic model that failed to take advantage of the post-war expansion of trade and that nationalized many sectors of its economy. India's share of global trade fell from 1.3% in 1953 to 0.5% in 1983. This model contributed to widespread inefficiencies and corruption, and it was poorly implemented.

After a fiscal crisis in 1991, India has increasingly adopted free-market principles and liberalised its economy to international trade. These reforms were started by former Finance minister Manmohan Singh under the guidance of Prime Minister P.V.Narasimha Rao. They eliminated much of Licence Raj, a pre- and post-British era mechanism of strict government controls on setting up new industry. Following these economic reforms, and a strong focus on developing national infrastructure such as the Golden Quadrilateral project by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the country's economic growth progressed at a rapid pace, with relatively large increases in per-capita incomes. The south western state of Maharashtra contributes the highest towards India's GDP among all states, while Bihar is among its poorest states in terms of GNI per capita. Mumbai is known as the trade and financial capital of India.

Agricultural and allied sectors accounted for about 52.1% of the total workforce in 2009–10. While agriculture employment has fallen over time in percentage of labor employed, services which includes construction and infrastructure have seen a steady growth accounting for 20.3% of employment in 2012-13. Of the total workforce, 7% is in the organised sector, two-thirds of which are in the government controlled public sector. About 51.2% of the labor in India is self-employed. According to 2005-06 survey, there is a gender gap in employment and salaries. In rural areas, both men and women are primarily self-employed, mostly in agriculture. In urban areas, salaried work was the largest source of employment for both men and women in 2006.

Unemployment in India is characterised by chronic (disguised) unemployment. Government schemes that target eradication of both poverty and unemployment (which in recent decades has sent millions of poor and unskilled people into urban areas in search of livelihoods) attempt to solve the problem, by providing financial assistance for setting up businesses, skill honing, setting up public sector enterprises, reservations in governments, etc. The decline in organised employment due to the decreased role of the public sector after liberalisation has further underlined the need for focusing on better education and has also put political pressure on further reforms. India's labour regulations are heavy even by developing country standards and analysts have urged the government to abolish or modify them in order to make the environment more conducive for employment generation. The 11th five-year plan has also identified the need for a congenial environment to be created for employment generation, by reducing the number of permissions and other bureaucratic clearances required. Further, inequalities and inadequacies in the education system have been identified as an obstacle preventing the benefits of increased employment opportunities from reaching all sectors of society.

Child labour in India is a complex problem that is basically rooted in poverty. The Indian government has implemented, since the 1990s, a variety of programs to eliminate child labor. These have included setting up schools, launching free school lunch program, setting up special investigation cells and others.Desai et al. state that recent studies on child labour in India have found some pockets of industries in which children are employed, but overall, relatively few Indian children are employed. Child labor below the age of 10 is now rare. In the 10-14 group, the latest surveys find only 2% of children working for wage, while another 9% work within their home or rural farms assisting their parents in times of high work demand such as sowing and harvesting of crops.

India has the second largest diaspora around the world, an estimated 25 million people, many of whom work overseas and remit funds back to their families. The Middle East region is the largest source of employment of expat Indians. The crude oil production and infrastructure industry of Saudi Arabia employs over 2 million expat Indians. Cities such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi in United Arab Emirates alone have employed another 2 million Indian construction workers during its construction boom in recent decades. In 2009–10, remittances from Indian migrants overseas stood at INR2500 billion (US$39 billion), the highest in the world, but their share in FDI remained low at around 1%.

Since the early 1950s, Indian government initiated various schemes to help the poor attain self-sufficiency in food production. These have included ration cards and price controls over the supply of basic commodities, particularly food at controlled prices, available throughout the country. These efforts prevented famines, but did little to eliminate or reduce poverty in rural or urban areas between 1950 and 1980.

India suffers from substantial poverty. According to World Bank's estimates on poverty based on 2005 data, India has 456 million people, 41.6% of its population, living below the new international poverty line of $1.25 (PPP) per day. The world Bank further estimates that 33% of the global poor now reside in India. Moreover, India also has 828 million people, or 75.6% of the population living below $2 a day, compared to 72.2% for Sub-Saharan Africa.

The National Rural Employment Guarantee Act 2005 (or, NREGA No 42) was later renamed as the "Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act" (or, MGNREGA), is an Indian labour law and social security measure that aims to guarantee the 'right to work'. It aims to ensure livelihood security in rural areas by providing at least 100 days of wage employment in a financial year to every household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual work.

Starting from 200 districts on 2 February 2006, the NREGA covered all the districts of India from 1 April 2008. The statute is hailed by the government as "the largest and most ambitious social security and public works programme in the world". In its World Development Report 2014, the World Bank termed it a "stellar example of rural development".

The MGNREGA was initiated with the objective of "enhancing livelihood security in rural areas by providing at least 100 days of guaranteed wage employment in a financial year, to every household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual work". Another aim of MGNREGA is to create durable assets (such as roads, canals, ponds, wells). Employment is to be provided within 5 km of an applicant's residence, and minimum wages are to be paid. If work is not provided within 15 days of applying, applicants are entitled to an unemployment allowance. Thus, employment under MGNREGA is a legal entitlement.

MGNREGA is to be implemented mainly by gram panchayats (GPs). The involvement of contractors is banned. Labour-intensive tasks like creating infrastructure for water harvesting, drought relief and flood control are preferred.

Apart from providing economic security and creating rural assets, NREGA can help in protecting the environment, empowering rural women, reducing rural-urban migration and fostering social equity, among others."

The law provides many safeguards to promote its effective management and implementation. The act explicitly mentions the principles and agencies for implementation, list of allowed works, financing pattern, monitoring and evaluation, and most importantly the detailed measures to ensure transparency and accountability. In the November 2014 cabinet expansion, Birender Singh replaced Nitin Gadkari as rural development minister. Among the first statements made by the new minister was an assurance that NREGA would continue in all districts.

The Twelfth Five-Year Plan of the Government of India has decided for the growth rate at 8.2% but the National Development Council (NDC) on 27 Dec 2012 approved 8% growth rate for 12th five-year plan.

With the deteriorating global situation, the Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission Mr Montek Singh Ahluwalia has said that achieving an average growth rate of 9 percent in the next five years is not possible. The Final growth target has been set at 8% by the endorsement of plan at the National Development Council meeting held in New Delhi.

"It is not possible to think of an average of 9% (in 12th Plan). I think somewhere between 8 and 8.5 percent is feasible,” Mr Ahluwalia said on the sidelines of a conference of State Planning Boards and departments. The approached paper for the 12th Plan, approved last year, talked about an annual average growth rate of 9%.

“When I say feasible... that will require major effort. If you don’t do that, there is no God given right to grow at 8 percent. I think given that the world economy deteriorated very sharply over the last year...the growth rate in the first year of the 12th Plan (2012-13) is 6.5 to 7 percent.”

He also indicated that soon he would share his views with other members of the Commission to choose a final number (economic growth target) to put before the country’s NDC for its approval.

The government intends to reduce poverty by 10% during the 12th Five-Year Plan. Mr Ahluwalia said, “We aim to reduce poverty estimates by 9% annually on a sustainable basis during the Plan period. Earlier, addressing a conference of State Planning Boards and Planning departments, he said the rate of decline in poverty doubled during the 11th Plan. The commission had said, while using the Tendulkar poverty line, the rate of reduction in the five years between 2004–05 and 2009–10, was about 1.5%points each year, which was twice that when compared to the period between 1993-95 to 2004-05.

The Midday Meal Scheme is a school meal programme of the Government of India designed to improve the nutritional status of school-age children nationwide. The programme supplies free lunches on working days for children in Primary and Upper Primary Classes in Government, Government Aided, Local Body, Education Guarantee Scheme, and Alternate Innovative Education Centres, Madarsa and Maqtabs supported under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, and National Child Labour Project schools run by the Ministry of Labour. Serving 120,000,000 children in over 1,265,000 schools and Education Guarantee Scheme centres, it is the largest such programme in the world.

Under Article 24, paragraph 2c of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which India is a party, India has committed to providing "adequate nutritious foods" for children. The programme entered the planning stages in 2001 and was implemented in 2004. The programme has undergone many changes and amendments since its launch.

The MDM scheme has many potential benefits: attracting children from disadvantaged sections (especially girls, Dalits and Adivasis) to school, improving regularity, nutritional benefits, socialization benefits and benefits to women are some that have been highlighted.

Studies by economists show that some of these benefits have indeed been realized. The positive effect on enrollment of disadvantaged children (Dreze and Kingdon), on attendance (by Chakraborty, Jayaraman, Pande), on learning effort (by Booruah, Afridi and Somanathan), on improving nutritional inputs (Afridi), on improving nutritional outcomes (by Singh, Dercon and Parker), and so on.

Literacy in India is a key for socio-economic progress, and the Indian literacy rate has grown to 74.04% (2011 figure) from 12% at the end of British rule in 1947. Although this was a greater than sixfold improvement, the level is well below the world average literacy rate of 84%, and of all nations, India currently has the largest illiterate population. Despite government programmes, India's literacy rate increased only "sluggishly," and a 1990 study estimated that it would take until 2060 for India to achieve universal literacy at then-current rate of progress. The 2011 census, however, indicated a 2001–2011 decadal literacy growth of 9.2%, which is the slower than the growth seen during the previous decade.

There is a wide gender disparity in the literacy rate in India: effective literacy rates (age 7 and above) in 2011 were 82.14% for men and 65.46% for women. The low female literacy rate has had a dramatically negative impact on family planning and population stabillisation efforts in India. Studies have indicated that female literacy is a strong predictor of the use of contraception among married Indian couples, even when women do not otherwise have economic independence. The census provided a positive indication that growth in female literacy rates (11.8%) was substantially faster than in male literacy rates (6.9%) in the 2001–2011 decadal period, which means the gender gap appears to be narrowing.

The Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (Hindi for Total Literacy Campaign) was launched in 2001 to ensure that all children in the 6–14-year age-group attend school and complete eight years of schooling by 2010. An important component of the scheme is the Education Guarantee Scheme and Alternative and Innovative Education, meant primarily for children in areas with no formal school within a one kilometre radius. The centrally sponsored District Primary Education Programme, launched in 1994, had opened more than 160,000 new schools by 2005, including almost 84,000 alternative schools.

Unemployment in India is a serious social issue. Unemployment records in India are kept by the Ministry of Labour and Employment of India. The Government of India has taken several steps to decrease the unemployment rates like launching the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme which guarantees a 100 day employment to an unemployed person in a year. It has implemented it in 200 of the districts and further will be expanded to 600 districts and soon all districts. In exchange for working under this scheme the person is paid 150 per day.

Proposals have been made to construct high-speed railway lines in India but no concrete action has been taken. In 1999, the Konkan Railway Corporation introduced the Roll on Roll off (RORO) service, a unique road-rail synergy system, on the section between Kolad in Maharashtra and Verna in Goa, which was extended up to Surathkal in Karnataka in 2004. The RORO service, the first of its kind in India, allowed trucks to be transported on flatbed trailers. It was highly popular, carrying about 110,000 trucks and bringing in about INR 740 million worth of earnings to the corporation till 2007. but in 2008 the Indian government approved the construction of high-speed railway lines in India by the made in India plan of which over 100,000 KM of high rail way will be built by 2018.

The Indian Armed Forces are the federal military forces of the Republic of India. It consists of four professional uniformed services: the Indian Army, Indian Navy, Indian Air Force and Indian Coast Guard. Additionally, the Indian Armed Forces are supported by two paramilitary organisations (Assam Rifles and Special Frontier Force) and various inter-service institutions such as the Strategic Forces Command. The President of India is the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces. The Indian Armed Forces are under the management of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), which is led by the Union Cabinet Minister of Defence. With strength of over 1.3 million active personnel, it is world's 3rd largest military force and the largest standing volunteer army in the world.

It is important to note that the Central Armed Police Forces, which are commonly and incorrectly referred to as 'Paramilitary Forces', are headed by officers from the Indian Police Service and are under the control of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The Indian armed forces have been engaged in a number of major military operations, including the Indo-Pakistani wars of 1947, 1965 and 1971, the Portuguese-Indian War, the Sino-Indian War, the 1987 Sino-Indian skirmish, the Kargil War, and the Siachen conflict among others. India honours its armed forces and military personnel annually on Armed Forces Flag Day, 7 December. Since 1962, the IAF has maintained close military relations with Russia, including cooperative development on programmes such as the Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) and the Multirole Transport Aircraft (MTA). The Indian armed forces are steadily undergoing modernisation, with investments in areas such as a F-INSAS, missile defence system and a nuclear triad.

The Department of Defence Production of the Ministry of Defence is responsible for the indigenous production of equipment used by the Indian Armed Forces. It comprises the 41 Indian Ordnance Factories under control of the Ordnance Factories Board and 8 Defence PSUs namely, HAL, BEL, BEML, BDL, MDL, GSL, GRSE and Midhani. The Indian Armed Forces are the world's largest arms importer, with Russia, Israel, France and the United States being the top foreign suppliers of military equipment.

The Indian armed forces launched the 2025 military improvement program in 2001 which saw the purchase of major equipment from foreign and local manufacturing including a major 2015 arms deal with the US all of which was delivered in early 2016 including fighter jets, electric warfare systems and Attack helicopters.

The Indian air force expanded its fighter force under the 800 fighter plan along with the modernization of helicopters with newer gear. The Navy also expanded by ordering more domestic ships to replace older ships and counter China along with the purchase of four Mistral class ships in 2004 which ere all delivered by 2016 The Indian sub fleet also expanded with 6 French Scorpene based subs and six domestic subs which expanded from the Kilo subs to replace current ones but the biggest was for four type 216 sub ordered in 2001 .

The Indian ground forces aimed to have 1600 T-90 tanks by 2018 and up to 1000 domestic Arjun tanks while replacing current APC and IFV with domestic, US and Russian vehicles with delivery's starting in late 2015 with the kistrel IFV of Indian origin but the foreign gear included 650 BMP-3 that were ordered in 2000 to replace the BMD-1 along with over 800 Indian modified CV-90 from Russia and Sweden after conflict with Pakistan where it was decided full conflict may be near and current equipment may not be enough despite opposition at the time no vehicle was ready of Indian origin The military also started the 5 billion artillery deals to purchase many hundreds of different artillery pieces for the army starting in 2000 with the purchase of 350 Pegasus howitzers from Singapore followed by the purchase of the G6 Self propelled gun at 350 units and has expanded ever since as the total number of artillery pieces exceeds 2000 over the 16 years and over 800 Self propelled pieces over 14 years. The Indian future soldier program based on similar French programs was delayed but on a steady track for now although nothing other major happened not already planned in defence budgets other then small arms purchases.

Helicopters became a major focus as well despite cutting said fund to purchase up to 80 more SU-30 and up to 185 Rafael's in 2004 along with the mistral purchase although along with these were upgrades to older craft with the MIG-21 being replaced by the Tejas which was aimed to reach a fleet of 320 by 2025 the Helicopter force aimed to purchase 600 new copters including Mi mil-24, 18, 38 and US based Apache, Blackhawks and Chinooks plus the South Korean Surion and Canadian cyclone by 2016 with domestic designed gear including the light observation helicopter, light attack helicopter, Dhruv multirole copter for all three branches to replace older copters. The Indian air force also got new modern Spartan transports to replace the Avro aircraft and dozens of UAV such as the AURA and such for extended operations other aircraft such as the Mig-29 and Mirage fighters were upgraded with the Mirage-2000 being upgraded to a 4000 status and the other MIG fighters being replaces in the early 2020 by the AMCA and the FGFA fighters.

The Navy was based on the purchase of dozens of more ships then needed but the government still wanted it so they increased the numbers and threw more money at it... This included the Kolkata class, Project-17, Kamorta ETC that were entering service and ordering more of current ships such as three more Telawar class vessels. The future navy would include 12 Project 17 frigates which will operate a 56 cell system for the Barak and Brahmas missiles among others 2x AK-630 CIWS, 1 Oto Melara SRGM, 2× 533 mm Torpedo tubes and 2× RBU-6000 anti-submarine rocket launchers. While the 8 ships in the improved Kolkata which is much larger operates 96 cells VLS 2x AK-630 CIWS, Oto Melara SRGM, 4× 533 mm Torpedo tubes and 2× RBU-6000 anti-submarine rocket launchers and a rolling airframes while the original three will be upgraded with upgraded firepower. While the Kamorta class vessels will be upgraded with Anti-ship capabilities and there up to 16 improved vessels with have weaponry similar to the Telwar class or Delhi class vessels.

Today was the day of suppleness in the country as the nation felt safe as the current world conflicts started to end. The nation remained neutral but sided against the nation as China was they're rival but because of this the nation could now focus on they're main enemy...Pakistan....

But this had all changed when India was split into 4 different factions

It was the year 2016. Anandiben was the Chief Minister of Gujurat and India was at war with Pakistan. Riots ensued in Gujurat, hindus burnt muslims and muslims tortured Hindus. Anandiben and her BJP government struggled to maintain their hold on Gujurat as a hindu state. The Muslims took over, and started the slaughter of cattle, and the genocide of Hindus. A Hindu Revolution Army led by Maharana Udaisinh from Rajasthan engaged the Muslims in a huge war. The remaining hindus took up their weapons and stormed against the Muslims as a unit. The Muslim government was overthrown and Maharana Udaisingh became the Monarch of Gujurat. Next, Udaisingh left the Indian Union and became a confederate state of their own, called "Rajputana" Rajasthan quickly joined this confedracy and alongside the combined might of the 2 states, Udaisinh went on an imperial campaign, annexing neighboring states and establishing full control over his lands. Soon, India broke into several seperate factions: Odisha, Rajputana, and Dehli Sultanate. Udaisinh made allies with the Lankans down south and mobillized a huge Hindu force, and declared war against the Muslim Sultanate of Dehli. A huge war ensued with both sides killing each other, soon Odisha entered the war against Dehli and together they subdued the muslim forces of Dehli. Udaisinh ravaged Odisha and conquered the land, but died doing so. Pratap was crowned Maharana of The Rajputana. Maharana Pratap was well aware the Pakistan and Bangladesh supported the Sultanate of Dehli, and thus ordered his forces to stop the campaign. He started work on making his empire advanced and powerful, he was very succesful. Soon Odisha was stormed by Rajputana's forces and annexed by Pratap. With the new resources he made Rajputana a rich, powerful, and advanced nation. Soon a new threat in the Muslim alliance faced Pratap. Tensions with Lanka were high, and the Muslims were constanly alarming his empire.

HISTORY OF BULGARIA:

During modern times, Bulgaria was rarely brought up in conversation. It held little real importance, being just a larger state in the Balkans. And indeed, when wars did break out near them, Bulgarians decided to remain neutral for the most part.

The Great Anatolian War is it is known in Bulgaria sparked a great desire in the fledgling nation to fight their old enemies, the Turks, and indeed they did supply some men intone conflict. The most important thing that they did however was supply a large amount of their weak economy to aid forces defeating Turkey.

After this however Bulgaria remains entirely neutral in most affairs. They had a brief period of military improvement followed by major economic issues. Bulgaria almost participated in the war between Romania and Russia, but five extra votes for neutrality prevented this from happening.

Bulgaria however has newly appointed a leader of ambition, but also of realism. It is the fond hope of many in the nation that this individual will solve their crises and allow Bulgaria to become a respected power. But with limited forces and an imploding economy, the nation may soon have to choose between its ideals and its very survival.

-Recent history of Greece
When the economic crisis of 2009-2016 ended started a new era of power for greece. AS only western nation where both Russia and the NATO nations were welcome became Greece a new economic power. The population of the cities started to grow fast and many treaties with the EU and RUssia followed. Supported by both Russia and the US decided Greece to attack its ancient enemy: Turkey. Together with Cyprus, Armenia and Kurdish and Armenian Cilician rebels opened Greece the attack on Turkey. With modern european weapons and with Russian naval help in the black sea was Turkey, although it showed great resistance, defeated. Cilicia became independent, Byzantium and Antioch were refounded and Armenia, Cyprus and Greece received big parts of Turkey. The greeks started then to expel all Turks from western Turkey. Everyone that resisted was shot. After that emigrated thousands of greeks to west-Turkey. The population and ground of Greece was now so big that many cities demanded more rights and in 2018 became Greece a federation. Together with Antioch, Cyprus and Byzantium formed Greece a new military and economic EU-like alliance. The HL( hellenic league). Greece also established friendly relations with Bulgaria, Cilicia and Armenia.

-Recent history of Antioch
When Turkey was defeated by Greece, Armenia and Cyprus was Cilicia refounded. An armenian nation. South of that was, however, another art of Turkey. After the warwas this outpost conquered by Cyprus. After seeing that the old city of Antioch was florating again after groups of Cypriots and Armenians settled there after the Turks were expelled saw both Greece and Cyprus business in the outpost. Hundred of thousands of Greeks and Cypriots emigrated to Antioch and the surrounding lands. THey were soon followed by Armenians and by refugees from Syria. In 2017 declared Cyprus to make the florating land independent. The new epublic was now led by greeks and Cypriots from old noble families. Because the nation was very religious( mostly greek-orthodox) had the Patriarch of the grrek-orthodox church much power in the city. This created a power struggle between the aristocrats and the patriarch that's even now going on.
In the international world is Antioch not high regarded. Although its a rich nation with high technology isn't it a political or mlitary power. Antioch joined he HL and has also an alliance with Cilicia. Through thei christian faith has Antioch much trade connections with western nations, but war with the closest eastern nations. Aeppo is the main enemy of Antioch. It's economically less powerful than Antioch and Antioch has a better equipped army. But the army of Aleppo is bigger and supported by IS. Because both nations have the same strength haven't they both been able to defeat eachother but border disputes happen constantly ad both seek help from their allies as its clear that war is coming to them. Another conflict were Antioch is involved in is the war against Hezbollah. When Hezbollah was having succes in its war against the christian government of Lebanon asked the chrstian militias help from Antioch. Together with the militias and moderated muslims pushed Antioch Hezbllah to the south. At the same moment attacked Israel the area that was under control of Hezbollah. When Hezbollah went underground again after they'd many losses refused Israel to give the occupied territories back to Lebanon. Free Lebanon and Antioch decided at that moment to unite their forces so that they could remain independent. This meant that northern Lebanon joined Antioch. Antioch is also at war with IS, but because IS is also at war with Armenia, Kurdistan, Arabia and Persia do they send not many soldiers to Antioch so Antioch has had not much trouble from IS. A large scale attack from IS would be devastating for Antioch, however.

-Recent history of Byzantium
When Turkey was defeated in 2016 decided the greek government to refound Byzantium. This 'new' nation controls the bosporus and Constantinople. This makes the nation rich. Byzantium is ruled by Emperor Michael X. The greek government decided to make Byzantium a monarchy as propaganda and inspiration to rebuild the old byzantine empire. They chose Michael Iassoros because he was a capable general and ruler. Michael was the man that had commanded the Greek army over the Bosporus and he was the man that had convinced the greek government to make byzantium independent. They also chose him because he was young, religious and because he came from an old noble family. When Michael became emperor showed he the ambition to create a byzantine-like realm. To do this started he to draw as many Byzantium-inspired greeks to Byzantium. Then expelled he all arabs and Turks from Byzantium with help of the greek army. Many call this action genocide as hundreds of thousands turks died. Michael continued by making all mosques churches again. He also made the patriarch of Constantinople an important person again. He appointed greek nobles on important positions. In the beginning of 2017, when his nation was getting normal( it was now totally inhabited again and the genocide had ended as all turks were gone. And the government was now functioning) started Michael two programs, one to make Byzantium economically and military strong and one to make his nation a center of byzantine culture. Both plans worked suprisingly good. Byzantium became an important trade center again through its position on the Bosporus. Many skilled and well-educated greeks inhabited Byzantium so the economy was promising. Many international trade treaties further increased it. THe military became strong through much weapon trade with Russia and the western nations what brought Byzantium the possession of modern weapons. AS the citizens of Byzantium are very nationalistic has the military never a shortage of soldiers and these soldiers are trained by veterans from the greek army. Michael even created a succesful royal officers academy. The plan that concerned the improvement of the byzantine culture was possibly even a bigger succes. Artists and architects from al over greece and Byzantium helped to help the government with this plan. Soon rose libraries, artworks and churches in byzantine style everywhere in Byzantium. Adrianople and Constantinople were centers of byzantine culture again, full of churches, bathhouses and other byzantine buildings.
Internationally is Byzantium also succesful. It has joined the EU and the HL and it has good relations with many western nations. It's also an ally and trade partner of Russia. THe most prominent enemies from Byzantium are Turkey and Bulgaria. The byzantines hate Bulgaria through their socialist policies and the history shows only war between Bulgaria and the old Byzantium. Although war isn't yet likely to hapen is it cear that Michael is willing to fight against Bulgaria and Turkey.

-Antioch
Antonios Kelados was awakened due the sound of explosions. He had been commander of an Antiochian border fort for two years. He was a veteran from the Turkish war of 2016. He and his fort stood tall in five border disputes with Aleppo. As he dressed to go up to see what was happening was he afraid that he had to do with another border dispute. AS he came up to his soldiers on the walls did he see he was wrong. This was far worse than a border dispute. Masses of soldiers from Aleppo were attacking the villages below the fort. Antonios immidiately commanded his men to prepare the artillery to shoot on the soldiers below. It was clear that the people in the village was lost. When he looked on the army of soldiers did he understand tht he and his 500 men would never be able to defeat them. As he commanded his men o prepare the fort for the siege started he to phone the high command in Antioch. They promised help but they didn't know when this help would arrive so thay asked him to hold his fort for as long as possible. As he eported this to his officers heard he an enomous noise. And he knew that his fort was doomed.

Maharana Pratap sat in his chair, watching with happiness the millitary march of the Rajput Armed forces. Rajputana was a large and mighty nation, and their millitary was quite large and mordern. Soon the Rajput soldiers marched with patriotism as the orange flag of Rajputana flew in the air. Word had it that the Dehli Sultanate challenged the Rajputs to a medieval style sword battle. Pratap thought of this positively, but knew the Sultan of Dehli would trick the Rajputs. So he had denied, instead he had fired WMD Missiles at the Sultanate. Rajputana inherited all of the Nuclear missiles of India, and was mighty in that state itself. Soon, news of an invasion by Pakistan and Dehli on the Thar Desert was alarming.

The Rajputs were ready to fight. 24,000 Men, 200 Tanks, and 60 Mirage Jets were prepared to hold off the 100,000 large Muslim force at the doorsteps until the Rajputs could prepare further defense

Thus the Battle of Thar commenced. The Indians had effectively subdued much of pakistan's army and economy, so they werent much of a threat, but the Bangladeshis were heavily supplying the Muslims of Dehli. There was one way to stop this. Nepali Intervention. As Nepal was a hindu state, it would be easy to get Nepal to fight Bangladesh while Rajputana conquered Dehli. Also the small state of Punjab could terrorize Pakistan while Maharana Pratap finished Dehli, so the plans were made.


Nepal's entire strenght was thrown at Bangladesh, and both sides engaged in a bloody conflict, ups and downs continued as The Muslims of Bangladesh and the Hindus of Nepal entered a bloody war. Meanwhile, The state of Punjab terrorized Pakistan while Rajputana prepared its forces against Dehli.


The Battle of Thar was soon to be fought. 24,000 Men under Saindas Rawat Ji prepared for a clash against 100,000 Muslim Forces in the Thar. Rajput Tank and jet Battalions raced against time as the Muslim Invaders were almost there. Soon the clash began, with Saindas Rawat Ji under sheer pressure and against all odds. Rawat Ji skillfully manuevered the rajputs to a elevated location from where they began heavy firing the Muslim forces. Rajput Tanks advanced fastly and surrounded the Muslims, and rAJPUT tanks bombed them from the sky. The Muslims lack of proper equipment and technology led to the demise of their tactical position, although with many Rajput Casualites. Rawat fought bravely and almost ended the entire Muslim army but was finally crushed due to lack of manpower and resources. The Muslims has won, but at the cost of 6.7/7 of the army they had deployed



Meanwhile, 15 Rajput infantry divisions, alongside 3 tank divisions, and 40 Mirage jets prepared for a defense. There total number was 130,000

The Muslims advanced without any doubt. Slowly the 130,000 Rajput Men ambushed the Muslims and slaughtered their remaining forces. Now was the time to make their next move. With their army destroyed the Haryana frontier of Dehli Sultanate was left open to assault, and assaulted it was. A massive Hindu army led by Maharana Pratap himself pincer rammed and continously bombed Haryana, and forced the Haryans to surrender. Soon the Hindus established their rule over Haryana and were in clear view against the rest of the Sultanate, soon word had it that the Bangladeshis were ambushed by A strong Gurkha regiment and were weakening against the might of Nepal, Punjab was struggling but was still powerful, and they had subdued Northern Pakistan.

Cilicia
When the armenians of Cilicia were freed from Turkish oppression was it a big problem to get the new state functioning. The biggest city, Adana, was mainly inhabited by islamic Turks and Kurds and the Cilician Freedom Army (CFA) had razed the city to the ground. With their ranks filled by Armenian immigrants. But because the armenian government had too to colonize east-Turkey was Cilicia not close inhabited. All Turks had been expelled from the new nation. With the Kurds was the agreement reached that the Kurds would inhabit the mosteastern province and the armenians the rest. Almost all power was in hands of the old armenian Azat and nakharar nobles and the armenian church. After a half year decided a meeting of nobles and representors of the people hat Cilicia was needing a central government and a capital. They too decided that a king would lead this government. They chose Vahan Voskiragh to be king. His family was one of the most prominent armenian noble families in Cilicia and they had kept their power under the Turkish rule. Vahan himself showed to be a strong leader, he was a smart young man with the ideals of a strong Cilician kingdom that would be recognized over the world. He created a government standing out of an senate where the three powers in his nation( the nobles, the church and the people) were represented. The oldest and biggest armenian city in Cilicia, Tarsus, would become the capital. Seleukia Trakheia became the most important trade and port city and the only city with a big greek population. The other new important Cilician cities became Sis, Vakha, Lambron and Trazark. King Vahan established a royal army and it was armed with weapons from Greece and Armenia. The noble militias were also an important part of the cilician military. The economy of Cilicia is not terrible, but because Cilicia is not on a fantastic trade position and because it doesn't prduce much special things has it to do with many economic issues. It is clear that Cilicia needs allies if it wants to exist, but with help of these allies can Cilicia rise under the rule of king Vahan who hopes to create a new golden era for Cilicia.

-Antioch
THe Antiochian border fort of Antonios Kelados had fallen, but his resistance had given the forces of Antioch the time to arm themselves. The Antiochian militias had taken strong positions in their protective mountains from were they could slow and weaken until the antiochian army was ready to do a counter-offensive. After three days of worthlessly talking decided the council of aristocrats that they needed one leader. THey chose Andronikos Valaxes from the ranks of the council. Andronikos was 36 years old and had commanded a big part of the Greeks in Antioch in the war of 2016. When he had locked the mountain passes started he to rally the Antiochian army, but he knew that his army wouldn't stand if Hezbollah and IS would turn against him to aid Aleppo. THat's why he sent letters to Cilicia and the members of the hellenic league to get help. He knew that all had their own problems and threats but he saw no other option, Antioch could not fall.

Armenia

Armenia, though small, was building up a military. The land in the Caucasus mountains was being conflicted by the Russians and the Georgians. Now Armenia was left conflicted. They're allies were at war with each other and both had requested help. Russia was by far the stronger ally, but they were making lots of enemies. If Russia won, they would share a border. Georgia had always been a faithful friend and would be less likely to backstab the nation. However, they were weak and losing the war. There was no choice. The king grabbed a pen and began to write a declaration of support for Russia. From this day forward, Armenia was at war with Georgia.

Armenia needed more than just Russia on their side though. Cilia was recovering as a state and was an ally for the long-term. A nation on the Balkans would be of great use to Armenia. Bulgaria, Romania or Greece were optimal choices. Bulgaria was largest but they would probably refuse any calls to war and remain neutral. Romania hated Russia so they were out the question. Greece were to far to help Armenia so it would be of little use to ally them. The king grabbed his pen once more, this time to write to the leader of Bulagaria. It would be insolent to ask for an alliance straight away, so he decided a non-Agression pact and trade agreement would be best.

To Bulagria,

The nation of Armenia extends it's hand in friendship. I believe it is of mutual interest to open trade between our nations, and to declare a pact of non-agression between us.

Sincerely,
Armenia


Cyprus

Cyprus had always been relatively free from the wars that constantly surrounded them. Still, the island was constantly being fortified. With the Russians in the north trying to push South, it seemed that Russia was making more enemies. There were a number of city states near Cyprus who could easily be exploited for trade. Cyprus was now predominantly fascist but lacked allies. There were two choices in mind. Greece or Turkey. They bothedespised one another so the king would have to decide between them. Greece was a good ally when Cyprus faced the war of 2016. They have been of great use to Cyprus, yet being enemies of the Turks wouldn't be good for Cyprus. So a letter was written.

To Turkey,

I believe it's of mutual interest for our two great nations to end our hostilities. We may have been enemies long ago, but the time has come to stop any chances of fighting. Thus, I propose a trade agreement between our nations.

Sincerely,
Cyprus

Cilicia
T'avagor(king) Vahan II was probably one of the most capable kings Cilicia ever had. Although he ruled a weak kingdom showed he to be a good ruler and commander. When he heard about the Antiochian call for help knew the 24 years old king that he needed to help them. One problem prevented him from directly taking action. Turkey was a big threat to Cilicia. Vahan's weak kingdom was able to fight Aleppo but it would never win from both Aleppo and Turkey. He decided to let the noble militias keep the northern and western mountains guarded, aided by some royal contignents. In this way could they slow a Turkish attack so much that Vahan would have time enough to return with his army to smash the turks back. When he had made his realm safe gathered Vahan his armies to march to the southeast. On his way was his army reinforced by Kurdish militias that had already foughten some border battles with soldiers from Aleppo. The Kurdic militias stood out of 30000 men. 10000 of them would guard the border with IS. The other 20000 will invade the north of Aleppo. The part of the royal army that invades Aleppo will stand out of 70000 men. Aleppo was suprised by the cilician assault as they thought that the cilicians wouldn't weaken their border with Turkey. Soon, however, started the defenders to send soldiers north. THe fighting between the armies of Aleppo and Cilicia had now truly begun.

Another measure to keep his northern border safe was a message to the armenian king to ask him to help Cilicia if it would be under Turkish attacks.

From: T'avagor Vahan II of Cilicia
To: T'avagor Abdul VI of Armenia

My fellow armenian king, to help my greek allies in Antioch against attacks from Aleppo have I left my northern border less protected. I want to ask you for an assurance of help if my nation will be attacked by the Turks. We have both fought together in the war of 2016 and I hope we can do that now again.

Armenian-Georgian Border

After the declaration of support for the Russian regime, Armenian troops marched into south Georgia. A minor force of 5,000 men was sent mainly to convince Russia that they were faithful. However, after Armenian troops reached Rustavi a brutal fire fight broke out between garrison troops and Armenian troops. The garrison had less men but many were still lost. The Georgian force of nearly 1,00 had reduced the Armenians to 3,500 men. The men were ordered to hold the city and to stop any Georgian attempts to reclaim it.

Yerevan, Armenia

King Abdul had sat at his desk relaxed for most of the day. he didn't expect any reply letters for some days. The Armenian forces that were sent to Georgia were expendable. He didn't feel the need to commit too much to the war. However, when a courier entered his room with a letterhe couldn't help but be curious. He opened it to see it was from his fellow Armenian ally, Cilicia. A request for help it would seem. He began to write a reply.

To T'avagor Vahan II of Cilicia,

Of course I will aid the righteous cause. I shall send any men not currently comited in Georgia to your border with Turkey.

Sincerely,
T'avagor Abdul VI of Armenia


Armenian-Cilician Border

Men began to flood over the border carrying arms and supplies north. 50,000 men were sent. Enough to leave garrisons in Armenia ready for a surprise attack. The only border problem was the Turks. They were generally hostile to any nations who shared a border. There was also the chance the Georgians would give up fighting Russia and invade Armenia instead. Thankfully, Cilicia was close enough for the troops to be pulled back in an emergency.

Recent Persian/ Iranian history

Postby THE UNITED FEDERATION OF ALGORENIA » Sun Feb 15, 2015 3:10 pm

Following years of unrest and turmoil, the Iranian government decided to expand its influence
As a counter balance to what many believed was a dysfunctional and aggressive stance taken by the US and its ISAF Coalition members earlier in the century.
In 2015, The nation of Iran took advantage of its republican guard members operating in the south and west, and after forging tight relations with a number of iranian backed militant groups who were fighting ISIL, went on a larger offensive and began claiming the territory as its own.

A swift and long operation soon followed in mid 2016 where Iranian regular, paramilitary forces, and supportive local militias began routing out remaining ISIL forces in the annexed region.
The operation lasted until november 2018, and even now Iranian paramilitary forces still battle pockets of terrorist extremists.

With the acquisition, many in the west and surrounding areas are on edge over Iran's actions; fearing further aggression, but many it whats become labeled "new persia" or simply persia are optimistic about the iranian occupation following the drop in ISIL attacks and influence compared to previous years, and the heated election of a moderate leadership which has noticeably been less radical than with previous years.

Besides this optimism though, some in Iran still argue for greater democracy and an end to the domineering theocratic government.

Ankara, Behcet

After the Anatolian War brought destruction in the homeland of Turks. The victorious Greeks, Byzantines, Cilicians,Cypriots and Armenians annexed much of land that was once belong to the Turks. They expelled the Turks in their territories which reduces the population of the Turks. Now Turkish general Mehmet, led his fallen nation to rise again and he establish the Behcet dynasty (Behcet Empire or commonly Turkey) and he promise to his people to vow revenge against who try to stop the Turks on their way and he will do how the French defeated the England during Hundred Years War inspires the Anatolian War and he knows that the conflict didn't end until all of his enemies bow on their knees. In present time in his palace, he receive a telegram from Cyprus about a trade agreement and he accept the agreement to prevent another war which it can end the Turkish domination of Anatolia. He didn't expect that one of his enemies become a trading partner. He then writes a two telegrams to look for some allies like ISIS and Egypt.

To: Caliph of Islamic State
Encryption: VERY HIGH
Greetings, my ISIS friends
We Turks are defeated and surrounded by our archenemies. Turkey has no allies and we need you to help us against our neighbors who try to finish our already devastated country and very soon we will perish in the contested region of Anatolia. I propose an alliance and trade agreement with you.

Regards,
Mehmet I of Behcet Empire

To: The Egyptian government
Encryption: VERY HIGH
Greetings, my comrades
As an Islamic state or a nation full of Muslims, I propose an alliance and trade agreement with you. This will boost our relations between the Egyptians and Turks.

Regards,
Mehmet I of Behcet Empire

Being surrounded by his enemies, Mehmet I decided to increase the Turkish army despite of outdated weaponry which is mostly militia due to economic depression ongoing in the devastated country. Few armies will launch a skirmish in his neighbors borders, especially Cilicia. Overall size of Turkish army is 540,000 armed mostly with AK-47. Massive propaganda was started now to resist and fight against the Greeks and Armenians who brutally killed as much as Turks they can! Greeks and Armenians have better equipment but Turks will attack in every battle in large numbers.

Meanwhile in Turkish-Cilician border few miles from Cilician city of Nevsehir. 3500 Turkish militias with 15 technicals and 2 howitzers suddenly attack the Cilician border guards as part of skirmish campaign against Greek and Armenian nations bordering Turkey. War cry can be heard before the vengeful Turkish militias fires to Cilician guards.

In Turkish-Armenian border, propaganda from Mehmet will able the cities in the east of the empire create resistance if Armenian retaliation occurs after the attack in northern Cilicia. Mehmet decided to send 10,000 well-trained troops in the border city of Giresun and 30,000 Turkish militias in Sivas in case the Armenians launch offensive.

The Bangladeshis had surrendered. As of their leader Tamim Iqbal was quoted saying, "In our war for independence we were fighting our muslim brothers in Pakistan, but real friendship came from the "hindus" in India, it would be unloyal to betray them in their time of need and I announce Bangladesh a territory of Rajputana!"


Meanwhile, Nepal and Bangladesh had create a cycle and were heavily shelling pakistan with aid from Punjab and Russia. Pakistan was thrown into a heavy unrest, with Premier Taufeez Maulona Sheikh wishing to continue the fight, but most of the general populace wishing to join Rajputana. What followed was a delight. Most of the pakistanis converted to Hinduism, and pleaded for Rajputana's help. Pakistani Millitary was cornered, and was struck from the south by a 300,000 Strong Rajput Millitary. Due to better equipment the Rajputs anihlated the Entire Pakistani military at the Rajasthani Border, and conquered much of southern Pakistan. Nepali Gurkha forces crashed into Pakistan from the east and were viewed by the general public as their saviours. The General Public overthrew Taufeez's government and established Hindu control over Pakistan. The Name of Pakistan was changed to "Chauhangarh" and Rajput forces succesfully occupied the nation

Dehli, Dehli Sultanate


"The aids from Pakistan and Bangladesh have stop," said Sultan Rasheed Naaz with a worried look. A messenger came running in through the door, and reported how pakistan and bangladesh were now annexed by Rajputana. Rasheed threw a 1 rupee coin into the messengers eyes, and killed him. "Now, we only have 1 choice, To throw our entire might at the Rajputs in Gurgaon" said Rasheed. He walked to the podium where there was a huge 300,000 crowd waiting for him, flying the flags of the Sultanate. "Today! our Muslim allies have betrayed Allah and Islam, BUT WE SHALL NOT SURRENDER AGAINST THOSE HINDUS!, ALLAHU ACKBAR!!" Yelled Rasheed. The crowd chanted Allahu Ackbar, as preperations were made.

Suprsingly every single soldier was called near the border of Gurgaon, and army of 500,000 at least. Dehli was ungarded on the rest of the fronts, and the Rajputs conquered much of the Sultanate with ease. Slowly the 500,000 Soldiers invaded Gurgaon, but weere met by a 300,000 Strong Rajput Millitary, 500 Tanks, and 70 Mirage Jets. The Battle of Gurgaon began.


But before the battle, Maharana Pratap would meet with Rasheed in a battle of words. So the battle began.

Pratap:

Rasheed:

Rasheed: Welcome, Hindu. Welcome to the Land of Islam. I warn you, once in my palace itself Maharana Udaisinh came, demanding a surrender. What happened later, your Father Died. Died in these hands. You know the collum for religion in important forms? I write MUSLIM in big and bold letters

Maharana Pratap: I warn you too, once In the riots of gujurat a muslim family was stuck and under attack by Hindus, i fought for 24 hours and defeated the entire Hindu Gang. In the religion collum, i write INDIAN in big and bold.


Rasheed: Fool

Maharana Pratap: See you on the battlefield.

PRESIDENT'S OFFICE, BULGARIA:

Slyapo Buzhi was president of Bulgaria, elected the previous year to aid the nation rise as opposed to doing nothing and withering away. He had full intentions to improve Bulgaria, making it glorious as opposed of unknown.

His character could best be described as ambitious but realistic. He wouldn't make huge blunders, but may easily be carried away with success, and certainly wanted to lead Bulgaria personally. As he viewed it, he was the only one who could carry the nation out of the depths of being unknown and into the state of being well respected.

Slyapo had no delusions as to the power of his nation. It had potential, yes, but Bulgaria was hardly a superpower by any means. The president had no intention to bother to try and make it one, instead deciding to take more of an active role in foreign affairs.

The first thing he noticed when he stared at a modern map of the world was the expansion of a strange alliance known as "Rajputa". The group seems intent on uniting India. Officially, Slyapo had no perspective on the matter other than that things were changing, but inwardly the president felt concerned. Rajputa had a long way ahead of them, but India was a powerhouse if united.

Slyapo needed to be able to project power if he was or influence world affairs. To this end, he ordered the acquisition of two new jet fighters, dated but useful. He also ordered the production of a single diesel submarine to patrol his limited waters. Finally, the president asked his best generals to provide more advanced training to Bulgarian soldiers.

Sighing, he looked at his funds. The Bulgarian economy was suffering an implosion, and as much as he wanted to he could not waste it on better equipment for his army. Slyapo instead decided that trade was the way to go. But what TO trade? His eye was drawn eastward, towards the vats subcontinent of the Middle East. There was much oil there for him to trade.

But how to get it? An invasion would be idiotic, as even the crippled Turkey or the force of Cyprus could defeat him easily. No, he would choose diplomacy, not conflict, to achieve his ends. Slyapo called Turkey, a vast if demoralised nation, and asked to see if there was any trade that could be made that was mutually beneficial for the two nations.

Thus the Battle of Gurgaon began with a slight Dehli advantage. The Dehli soldiers were desperate and were open to air assault in the huge plains. The Rajputs were waiting in an elevated position on top of Mt.Aldera and would detonate the landmines and blast them through the air. The landmines exploded and the Rajput Mirage Jets bombed from the sky and destroyed the Dehli army. The General, javed miandad was killed and the soldiers were in a frenzy. The rajput soldiers fired with full patriotism and might as they killed many Dehli soldiers. The dehli men fled for their lives. As the Rajput artillery and tanks blasted their complete ranks and knocked them out.


The news of rajput victory was bad news for the people back in Dehli, who decided to take mattter in their own hands. They spilt apart the Sultanate into 100's of micro kingdoms.


Soon, the micro kingdoms went to war with each other and destroyed each other completely, and were open to invasion/.


Pratap ordered the runover of all of these small kingdoms, so that Rajputana could establish rule over Dehli Sultanate

The Rajputs had annexed the already war torn Punjab peacefully, and the Nepalis were soon to follow.

Nepal was completely destroyed and was looking for support, the war with bangaladesh had thrown them over completelty, and the people were revolting to join the Rajputana. Heavy protests ensued in Nepal as the government worked hard to keep the Nepalis peaceful, but with little success.


Rajput Politican, Sangsinh went to Nepal, much to the happineess of the general public and requested for a vote to be held. Whether to join Rajputana or Not.


Rajputana Includes:

Mumbai
Odisha
Much of Dehli
Pakistan
Bangladesh
Punjab

Cyprus

The king was glad to see the Turks accept such a lucrative trade agreement. Hopefully any hostilities would end between the nations. Then the Turks did the unthinkable. They fired upon Cilician border guards. Cyprus cared little about Cilicia and thought it better to avoid another war with Turkey. Then he had a moment of brilliance. A way to further bury the hostilities with this new zealous leader of Turkey.

Dear General Mehmet,

Best of luck in your current conflict. As a sign that Cyprus is willing to end hostilities, we are graciously offering your navy the ability to dock in our ports. You may also station troops if need be but I doubt that would be necessary.


Armenian-Turk Border

It was a usually calm day as the men lazed around. After the Turks were defeated in the Anatolian war they didn't dare show their faces to Armenia. Although their new leader was something of a zealot. Then some men marched from the Turkish side. Armed with AKs, they stood before the border defence. Shots of automatic weapons could be heard South from Cilicia. Then a Turk told them to stand or they would shoot.

Armenian-Cilician Border

The remaining force of what was being sent to guard the Cilician borders stopped in their tracks upon seeing Turkish troops already there. There were far more Armenians but to destroy the technicals and the Howitzer a few men would have to be lost. Still, they were ordered to defend Cilicia at all costs. The troops opened fire before the Turks could. Some of the Turks ran behind their armoured vehicles for cover. The Turks returned fire as the Armenians struggled to find cover. The 5,000 men on this part of the border was reduced to 4,800 and it looked like the Turks still had over 3,000 men. A soldier fumbled with his radio out of his pocket and called for the troops north to come as reinforcements. The fight continued with the occasional loss as now both sides had cover. The men began to worry about how the Turks would use their artillery.

Yerevan, Armenia

The sudden attack on Cilicia didn't reach Abdul until it was too late. He spent hours drawing up battle plans but then he got the message about the fire fight. It seemed the men were attacking the Turks and no doubt the Turks would say Armenia attacked first. He already had the reports about the Turks guarding the shared border. As soon as word reached them of the attack, the border patrol would be slaughtered. He quickly sent word and could only pray the message reached them before the Turks could attack.

Rustavi, South Georgia

The support of the Russian regime in Georgia had been relatively quiet after the Battle of Rustavi. A few residents of the city tried to rebel but were easily suppressed. They were unorganised but the Armenian troops were still suffering losses.

Now only 5 Micro Kingdoms remained in Rajputana's path of complete imperial conquest. The Rajput armies stormed these kingdoms and annexed them into Rajputana easily. Rajputana established firm rule over the Dehli sultanate.


Meanwhile in Nepal, Sanga is conduction huge rallies to convince the people of the benefits of joining the huge rajputana.
