The Occupation of Arván (OOC | TWI ONLY)

The Occupation of Arván
IC


Image


Early History

In 1823, Overlady Mary Tywan sent troops and diplomats to Akan. This was after the failure of the Akan government who could not keep the nation stable. Troops occupied the land while diplomats secured a treaty with the failing government. Akan was running dry of resources and they needed someone to step in. Noronica declared Akan a Crown Dependancy which allowed the nation to be ruled by a Noronnican-approved Governor. The nation was renamed to 'Arván'.

1960's-1970's Noronica

Hiding under the pretence of the increasing fear of communist states, the Noronnican Government increased spending on the military budget. This allowed for the Government to begin asserting its dominance. In 1970, Noronica's government formed into a One-Party state, forcing the current Overlady, Victoria, to abdicate the position of Overlord. The Government became violent in its race to authority. The police became a pseudo-army as it was used to beat the population with propaganda and authority. Noronica was now under the rule of an oppressive government. The leader of this government was called Florence Tyme, she named herself the 'President of Noronica'. She was from the city of Greyham and witnessed some of the Communist rallies. It was from there that she began to foster feelings of hate towards the system who were seemingly unable to deal with the Communist threat. She joined the Noronica Nationalist Party in 1967 and began preaching her ideas of Nationalism and kicking 'unpatriotic dogs' out of her country. She attempted an assault on the Overlord Palace but ultimately failed due to her small numbers and her expectance of the people to rise with her. She was locked away, but soon the publicity of her arrest reached the ears of the people and soon she was out on bail from an influential supporter in the Nationalist Party. After gaining numbers, she managed to reach the highest position of the party and began holding political rallies. Her party was voted in on 1969.

This led to the annulment of the unification of both Noronica and Arván. In 1973, Arván legally became independent. The government formed a Republic and Arván became a Presidential nation. This system worked for a while, but soon the Presidents became more corrupt with a terrible political system. The President Raoul Sartin made himself the President for life and kept Arván under his rule. The government was allowed to rot from within allowing crime and corruption to run rampant around the peninsula.

Now

The peninsula is now a playground for the rich and gangs. Cartels have been set up and many terrorist cells congregate there. A human trafficking market has been set up there and is one of the biggest features of Arván. The cartels are well-funded by the rich, and there is a faction called the 'Noronica Nationalist Party' who support the Old Noronnican Republic. They seek to take control of Arván and then turn their sights on Noronica.

International crime circles are known to congregate to Arván, especially for the human trafficking. A small black market has been set up to equip those in the peninsula.

The government has little to no control over the nation anymore, only able to control a few towns around St. Recont. They control the largest military force, but they are not well-trained or equipped other than the occasional fighter jet bought illegally.

Noronnican Involvement

The Noronnican Military Intelligence Agency has been operating on the island since 2002. Operatives have been gathering intelligence about the various factions and their activities. Many top officials have agreed that it would be best to annexe the island, while others are cautious about this approach for fear of international backlash.

Operatives in the country have been bribing the officials and getting support from the population to be pro-Noronnican. The ongoing activities in Arván have been called "Operation French Isle".

The government in Noronica has been increasingly worried about international support of the cartels and terrorists in Arván, and the sophistication of the groups. This has caused a majority supporting the annexation of Arván. Many top military officials hold these same views. Others that have darker aspirations want the occupation of the peninsula to kick-start Noronica's Expansionism.

Goals


THE MAJOR GOAL OF THIS IS THAT NORONICA ENDS UP ANNEXING ARVÁN INTO HER TERRITORIES


That is really the only very important goal in this RP. The whole reason for it is for Noronica to regain its old "Crown" Dependency, but I want there to be more to the story than 'big Noronica sends army'.

Other than that, goals do not have to be set in stone. I would like you to know mostly what you aim to do, and I would like you to know what your involvement will mean throughout and after the RP. As long as we can all agree on the major endgame above, you can be free on your involvement - just make sure to tell me what you're going to do.

Rules


Please post on here before posting on the IC thread. This is just to make sure everyone knows about everyone. Please also feel free to ask about Arván if you have any further questions. Also, make sure to remember the plan. I need to know at least some idea of what you plan to do as the story does have an endgame.

Preliminary Plan
Subject to change


Noronica's goal is to usurp control of Arván and make it a fully fledged Noronnican territory. It wants to exert its influence over the peninsula and pursue interests in Gael. This is the very basic plan, I want a bigger story and I want more interesting plots. I also want to show a bit of Noronica's 'dark side' when it comes to controlling the peninsula and the operative's work.

Publicly, Noronica will say that intervention is needed as the government is rotting and indisciplined. It will also talk about the human rights issues and the terrible occurrences in the peninsula. I will include this in a news post once the IC thread has been set up and Arván is on the map.

Norsan forces could potentially support the annexation with military force, the government citing the human trafficing as one of the reasons for supporting Noronican forces.

The government would say it's to stop human trafficing, but it would also be to show that Norstham can project power a long way from the Mesder.

I'm happy with that. It will become international knowledge as soon as the first news post appears.

Military force will come after a few posts of my operatives and government officials - it will be a big decision for Noronica.

How are you going to go about annexing it? Just so I can get an idea of the forces I'd commit. They would be on the front line, but would be far outnumbered by Noronican forces.

I'm going to be sending in a few troops at the start to take control of key towns, maybe do a few rounds from my fighter jets to key military outposts, at the start.

When there is a response, I'll send in a lot more troops and begin the process of taking down cartels and government forces.

WARNING - this idea is very basic and may not reflect what I actually do, I'm just speculating before I make full military plans.

I'll probably stick to air strikes most of the time then, and then possibly commit a small amount of ground forces in a primarily guerilla/counter terrorism role. It might be a chance for the Skyhook frigates to see some action, which Gudao would be interested in.

You could RP terrorists or criminals on the peninsula?

If you want to involve your nation; you could be against Noronica occupying Arván or you could support Noronica.

Would it be about the human trafficking or the arms trading?

Arms trading, mostly likely. A military soldier (Helvetea's a bit corrupt) would come along and test them.

That's fine. They would need to evacuate during the occupation or they might be captured. Noronica will go on a huge crime-purge.

Would like to assist the takeover militarily. Supporting the Noronican control over that area would (1) benefit our already close relations, (2) allow for easier logistics of trade between the nations and of the Oster control of Lovsk, and (3) hopefully strengthen the Oster military\government presence on both sides of the crucial passage between the Eterna and Argean Seas.

Most criminals are going to be arrested, but there are a lot who are going to be shot on sight. If your soldier is captured and it is found out that she is a foreign soldier, she will be questioned.

Great, Noronica would be more accepting of your presence in Arván if you helped militarily.

Do you want to involve operatives? I already have Noronnican Military Intelligence working there: https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=742074

I'd be willing to deploy a few units to assist in the takeover. Maybe there are Corindi citizens or plantations that have been attacked and we'd prefer stable Noronican rule

Interesting.

So Corindi business or tourists are already in Arván? That could make things interesting for the international side of things. Could these be plants that are meant for medication but are desirable for drugs by cartels? (Not needed - just interested because the cartels are running a lot of the show in Arván)
