The Conclusion [OOC thread]

The Conclusion




[ Link to in character/IC thread ]

All is not well in the nineteen countries of Yohannes.

It has made new friends, and most certainly new foes, as the years went by since the rise of its industries and diplomacy 200 years ago. But, just like all stories of the many beautiful nations in this world, its story - in this case, that height of prosperity - must, realistically, come to an end. What rises must fall. The Yohannesian people, and the Ministers and Ambassadors of Her Majesty Garnet till Alexandros has been in denial for quite some time. Even as its [previous] Foreign Minister looked for possible assistance from outside powers, the ambassadors and legation officers of Her Majesty assured their foreign counterparts that all is well and good for the nation.

But Yohannes is, relative to the size of our collective regional worlds, not a large nation, and it increasingly become smaller, as the economy of the international communities of nations expand, and subsequently the political powers of various other nations. It sought commercial alliances and business alliances with new investment partners, such as Pharthan and Libraria and Ausitoria to name two, and largely tried to avoid conflict with rising major powers of the international communities, such as the major members of the International Freedom Coalition, Ardoki and Her despicable authoritarian brethren or the Empire of Greater Nihon and Her equally militaristic and aggressive SACTO brethren.

Meanwhile, the nineteen countries of Yohannes found itself wanting, her finance and expenditure spiraled out of control, as the taxpayers of the Crown Commonwealth of Her Majesty the Queen of Alexandria found themselves inadequate to meet the task of funding the ever bloating Commonwealth Navy. A Navy that must, to quote the World Assembly Security Council of nations, 'defend Her Majesty's firms as major exporters and market-defining institutions with significant influence within the global economy in over 1000 nations and 140 regions of the world.'

No navy of any single one nation can pretend, realistically, to protect such an interest. But the nineteen countries tried, and it failed. The people were not happy, as they - the taxpayers of the nation - must do away with various improvements to healthcare funding, social welfare reforms, and various other domestic schemes they consider as a must in a first world nation. Meanwhile, her traditional allies gradually detached themselves from international affairs, preoccupied themselves to protect their own interests, naturally and realistically, first and foremost, before their allies.

It is to Her Ministers' wonder, therefore, that none of the rising major powers of the international community has tried to harass her commerce, and possibly, bring her down -- for they could do so easily. The Commonwealth Navy -- no matter how well funded it is by the likes of even the nineteen countries' major funding programmes, the Bank of Yohannes and the other banks of the realms as examples -- could not even protect Her Majesty's peripheral trade from unorganised third class pirates and rogue naval organisations.

And if the Commonwealth Navy, a bloated navy finding itself overstretched in over 150 regions, could not even protect Her Majesty's commerce from the likes of the above, how could it possibly protect itself from far graver possible threats?

It cannot. In fact, any navy of any nation in the international community could, at present, harass Yohannesian maritime commerce located closest to their borders, geographically, and gain wealth without facing any consequences for years to come.

The once vaunted Commonwealth Navy is extremely overstretched and far too costly to maintain anymore, the nation is almost broke, Her people increasingly making their anger known by the fast increasing electoral gains of reactionary, opportunist, anti foreigner, dictatorial, racist and xenophobic parties such as Yohannes First and its leader Loseton Peter, to name but one.

Ten years since its commendation by the World Assembly as a 'nation epitomising neutrality and diplomacy, which dissuade war and promote peace and commerce, and realising that currently over five hundred embassies are hosted in the Empire', it found itself becoming just that, a nation only able to speak, but not act. The Commonwealth Navy cannot promote peace overseas, for it cannot even adequately protect its own commerce through the thousand seas abroad. If anything, the only sentence to ring true would be the over five hundred embassies present in the Kingdom of Alexandria.

The time has come for the nation to face reality. Yohannes is a nation facing bankruptcy, lest it stop its commercial expansion - going ever slower by the day, rein in naval spending and chop the bloated Navy to a much smaller size, and step aside to concentrate in its own domestic problems, away from international diplomacy, commerce, or, heaven forbid, warfare.

She must beg - to not just Her previous allies but also past enemies -for their assistance and forgiveness. She requires in the simple word of Her Foreign Minister, 'money', of other nations to save her from bankruptcy. A nation known as a lender is soon to become a nation of borrower, giving bonds and assurance credits, securities and any other forms of financial instruments, in return for the economic assistance and help of Her previous allies and enemies, in the form of, well, 'money.'

Her journey has come to an end. The conclusion is here: Yohannes must somehow find help from Her fellow nations - of any ideological background, stripe, or colours. Whether they be authoritarian, democratic, right leaning, left leaning, socialist or communist, reactionary or fascist. In the word of one anonymous legation officer:

"Help us save the economy, while enriching your very own economies by investing in the nineteen countries of Her Majesty Garnet til Alexandros, the Queen of Alexandria and Empress of Yohannes. Saving our commerce and trade, economy and people, while enriching your very own people, and strengthening your very own economy into the future."

Come and join in our very last story in this wonderful world of international communities of nations - a story just like the story of your very own nation itself."


This storyline connects with the following nations: [ I require your expressed OOC permission for anything or any mention of your nation in this storyline, the list below is a list of individuals who have expressed their interests, and give their permission, to include the mentioning of their in character nations' names in The Conclusion storyline ]

[ Kustgebied ] as The Kustburger Republic
[ Lamoni ] as The Free Republic of Lamoni

Out of character summary of posts located in the in character thread of The Conclusion

    The Ruled and the Ruler: over 43 vessels of the Commonwealth Navy lost to well armed and well funded pirate like naval organisations roaming around the vast waters of the 10000 islands region. The merchant vessels guarded by these frigates were trying to deliver valuable Yohannesian industrial goods to Brutland and Norden and a few other nations in the region that I ICly wise had struck trade relationship in the past. Meanwhile, the parliament has decided to create a select committee to pave the way for eventual naval dearmament programme, and in the case of this post, discuss things with the Government of Lamoni

Explanation One

Postby Yohannes » Tue Jul 12, 2016 5:59 am

Hello, and nice to talk with you (or if I have never communicated with you before, to meet you for the first time) :)

I am the owner of Yohannes (yes... there were many 'owners' of Yohannes since 2010, but I am actually the original and most active owner writing this here) :p

First of all, I wanted to apologise to people that I have offended in the past in this wonderful game of ours. I knew I - and the other previous owners - could be a wee bit annoying or, to quote the word of someone that we offended back then, 'dickhead'. I am not a robot, so I make mistakes both OOC and IC, and annoyed people in the process. I am truly sorry for all the bad OOC things I have done in the past while I was browsing and posting in this site with you and other people who enjoy playing NationStates, and would like to humbly ask for your forgiveness

To conclude, this is it for me. Yes, I have said that probably 5 times (I think?) in the past, but this is truly it. Basically, unlike in the past, this time I am stuck with too many real life commitment, especially study and some friends interest (and one romantic) interest, and as such, I cannot possibly devote much time to this game (and hasn't been able to for a year anyway). But I don't wanna go a slow death, you know? Or maybe you don't know haha... I seuck at this...

Yeah, I want to go with a bang. Not your stereotypical NationStates nuclear warfare bang, but more so economic bang. You know, if you have ever played Final Fantasy VIII, there was this nation that was like, good and all, and it suddenly dissapeared, you know? Well, no, it's not dissapearing into thin air, for it quite simply just isolate itself completely from the outside world, or in NationStates speak, the international communities of nations

I can log on to this game easily, but putting efforts into posting IC, no possible way. Before that time will really hit me, I want to complete this very last story of ours. I have never completed RPs that I started lately, but this time I am determined to finish this RP of conclusion.

I would like to humbly ask for you, my OOC friends or OOC enemies, to participate and write together with me, in my last story in NationStates. To use your creativity and imagination to see how this would, most importantly, benefit your very own nation, while somehow benefiting my nation also in the process, as it finally closed itself from any further commercial expansion, military intervention, or diplomatic initiatives abroad, or in OOC NS speak, posting any posts at all in the forums of NationStates

At its most basic, you can pretty much lend me money (for people who are more interested in military, and not really interested in economy play in NationStates). For those who are more economically inclined, I am sure you know what you can do (some fictional or your very own flavoured varying forms of buying our government bonds, or any other stuff that you think you like to do to help my nation)

Basically, we need nations - not just those who roleplay themselves as strong, expansionist, ambitious, militaristic, etc., but also those who roleplay themselves as peaceful - to help us. Whether you are communist, fascist, a democracy or one huge dictator infested land, you can help us in this very last story of ours. In the process, you will in character wise (ICly) 'be richer' in the process, if that is the simplest way of saying it

If you are interested, you can telegram me or post your interest to help me finish the story of my nation in this thread

Thank you for your possible interest in participating in the conclusion of our nation's story in the wonderful site of NationStates :)

I am starting writing the IC now

I'm interested. It'll be interesting to do something a little different. When you talk about the economy failing, do you include civil unrest as well or something separate? Stating what I'm doing, I'll be leaning to economic assistance and investments, and peacekeeping operations if need be.

'Ello!

As per your request . . . :p

If you're not averse to it, I'd definitely be interested in playing a part.

I have to admit, I lost quite a few hours browsing the Yohannesian iiWiki page, and I'm sad to see you go – however, I can sympathise with an obligation to real life, the dastardly thing it can be.

Assuming you're not opposed to my participation, the only problem I would find would be with the date. Your forumside factbook states that the current canonical year is 2020, and I'm not exactly keen on future RPs, because, as you can imagine, I can't predict events that will happen, or the leaders that will be around by then.

However, if this is played in 2020, then I could introduce a capitalist, centre-right puppet republic to use, which can of course be advantageous in economically tight situations . . .

I'm always open for negotiation, though.

Awesome ty for your interest :D

Lynion wrote:It'll be interesting to do something a little different. When you talk about the economy failing, do you include civil unrest


Yup, there will be civil unrest here and there. But not something like beheading of the Queen-Empress, or Yohannes turning communist/fascist (I don't think breaking historical continuity of my nation too much like that will make some of my closest OOC friends happy, because they already connect their nations a wee bit too deep with me, for me to simply throw away all that like that) :p

But will there be negative things happening for my nation? Realistically, yes. Whether it will negatively impact other nations who ICly so far connected their commerce with me, will be up for them to decide (if they want to they can, or if they don't want to, it's easy and always possible to write something IC to describe how they are not affected)

Lynion wrote:as well or something separate?


Yohannes will keep what commerce it has, but it will not interact with any nations that it has not interacted with so far, or any other things anymore. The size of Her commerce will also be a bit smaller, and Her Navy will be much smaller (no need for fictional navy when someone can't even post anything on the forums anymore haha). Yohannes will be a debtor nation, paying interests (or paying back in some ways) and other things to nations that help her sickness from getting worst

You can help protect some of our trade near the borders or seas surrounding your nation, that would be just one example, and in return we will maybe pay you, or do something that will benefit you in the process (within reason). Or any other things/solutions that people can somehow make up haha

Lynion wrote:Stating what I'm doing, I'll be leaning to economic assistance and investments, and peacekeeping operations if need be.


That will be most welcome, and I will include that in my post hehe

During my playtime around the 2011-2013 years, I was actively into IRC. But I don't know why (and you can tell me off here if you disagree with me hehe), nowadays I am not really a fan of closed or restricted/not readily accessible or seen channels or anything that is not readily located in the NationStates site itself. I honestly think that it would be better if the communication is done here

I know of the risks of multiple people going back and forth talking to one another, all the while no coordination at all and everyone ending up getting confused, but that will not happen as I will communicate with each and every single one person (as opening poster) to try to alleviate that (if it will happen), or any other possible confusion

Tbh the Yohannes IIWiki related articles are all outdated, and yeah... I am personally not impressed with my own works there. My most up to date information is written all over the diplomacy forums of the NationStates site :p


Tyrnica wrote:and I'm sad to see you go – however, I can sympathise with an obligation to real life, the dastardly thing it can be.


I will still be online here and there (or even almost daily just to do that one minute check or stuff), updating any present stuff (factbooks, threads, etc) if I have the RL time with the latest information about Yohannes, but, I won't post anything new at all around the forums once this conclusion IC RP is finished

So I am not going entirely, we can still telegram one another, but there's no further IC participation from me (or OOC) around the forums from that point onwards

I can break my continuity by somehow pretending that, as far as my connection with your nation goes (putting aside the continuity of other nations connecting their stories with me), we are RPing at your year. To me, the most important thing is being able to connect my nation's story with other people, and other things can always be put aside for that (unless it's really... gamebreaking... like one of us having aliens landing in our territories haha... no possible way putting that aside)

I would actually prefer that you are benefiting from your Tyrnica nation, as it is your most active nation IC wise (I am guessing here), and thus you stand to gain the most by writing under Tyrnica

I am a wee bit careless (restriction wise), so no worries about most (within possible semi realistic boundary) stuff. Feel free to make up stuff about how your nation stand to gain the most out of this event

Correct. Tyrnica was my first and main nation, but I was thinking of throwing in a more conservative nation for fun . . . It also gets a bit monotonous sticking to the German and Russian names I've got. :p

But, if we've got a good way to negate the date difference, I'm up for going in as Tyrnica.

Awesome! Thanks for your interest in possibly connecting or acknowledging this storyline in your nation's IC continuity :D

I vaguely remember (please tell me if I am wrong here), that we in fact did trade with one another in the past (or form some kind of investment deal), so that could possibly make it easier for you to somehow write something that allow this situation to benefit your nation commercially (or perhaps militarily, I don't know? It's all up to you)

Yeah.

Yes, that shouldn't really upset the historical continuity of other people, and after all, this is the beauty of economic RPs, they very rarely do have the potential deal breakers that military RPs would have (such as difference in calender affecting the presence of certain military stuff in conflicts, making people unhappy with one another, etc)

There may be some differences, yes, but it's not as upsetting as how it would be for a military focused storytelling

Mmmm, a trade relationship on the line. Mcnernian forces depend on Yohannesian weapons. And well we would be most inclined to buy VMK Arms to give yohanes liquidity. And make loans in general. Just floating ideas. It is sad to see you go.

Yes, I remember we've built commercial relationship with one another back around the 2012-2013 years (correct me if my memory falls short here)

Mcnernia wrote:Mcnernian forces depend on Yohannesian weapons. And well we would be most inclined to buy VMK Arms to give yohanes liquidity.


VMK itself is actually a consortium or umbrella of various businesses in Yohannes (partly to make for more variety... so the headlines or news is not constantly VMK). Yes, I will make sure to include this into the narrative (of Mcnernian entity, either government itself or privately). At least now I have your permission to mention your name in my story, so yeah

Mcnernia wrote:And make loans in general. Just floating ideas.


I will write something around that effect in the IC post

Mcnernia wrote:It is sad to see you go.


I will still be occasionally logging on to prevent my nation ceasing to exist, but yeah, I just find it very much impossible (has been for the past 2 years) to keep up with the things you (and the other more active players) are constantly writing about around the diplomacy forums these days haha

But to me, making up stuff and writing about Yohannes in the world of NationStates has been one good (for me personally, though others may disagree) long storyline. But just like all story (good or bad), it must come to an end somewhere down the line, otherwise it'd be lame. In writing a technical report, a strong conclusion captures the imagination of the readers, and cemented the main narrative as well as points of the story. I want to make sure I got that part right

Awesome! Thanks for your interest in possibly connecting or acknowledging this storyline in your nation's IC continuity :D

I vaguely remember (please tell me if I am wrong here), that we in fact did trade with one another in the past (or form some kind of investment deal), so that could possibly make it easier for you to somehow write something that allow this situation to benefit your nation commercially (or perhaps militarily, I don't know? It's all up to you)

It was my pleasure!

I believe one of your banks has economic stakes in several of my companies on GE&T (primarily Aerospace Manufacturers and Airlines, Wa'a in particular). I was thinking that this would be a part of an OS Geopolitical Power play to deny states it sees as potential threats inroads in the crises along with attempting to stabilize another world economy that has fairly large interests in the OS economy. So, I'd probably be mixing military and economic strategy here for mutual gain, more or less. :p

Feel free to plot away. My priority's to make sure that you are happy with the [IC] outcome of your participation. My first post was made so that it will allow Lamoni to somehow make something up from what I write about him there (in his case, I wrote that the Yohannesian government's parliamentary select committee would meet up with their Lamonian counterpart to discuss things... that Lamoni may want to put forward to me)

In your case, I will do something like that (giving a way for your to somehow make something up). It will not be the same as what I did to Lamoni (otherwise... it'd be boring if it's the same thing). You will see what I mean in my next post

Yohannes, how do you feel about Nihonese companies trying to exploit recent economic issues by entering on Yohannesi market?

You know, few yellow hides get local former government official, hire him to organize a party and introduce him to Yohannesi industrialists during it, and then wave of cheap cars, electronics, etc. flood your market...

Yeah, I am interested in that. Note that the Yohannesian market is a big market, so there's no possible way any one nation (not even someone who roleplay as Lyras like nation) can flood it. There will be lots of Nihonese cheap goods, yeah, but it won't be like in real life, where everything's 'Made in Japan' (back in the 1920s, at least concentrated on the Dutch East Indies, 'Made in Japan' was pretty much the same as 'Made in China' today)

Will your nation benefit a lot? Yeah, definitely. I am thinking of writing something - along that market line - that I reckon you will like (hehe). This is why economic RP can actually make your nation 'stronger' (if that's the simplest way of saying it) a lot easier than going to military RP, and you will see what I mean. You can think of it as my Christmas present for you
