Lolloh to Sell Colonies! (MT, Open)

Postby Lolloh » Wed Oct 23, 2013 7:29 pm

Due to a devastating Civil War, Lolloh has decided to sell its colonies, which it must give up as per treaty. The colonies (three) hold a total of 4 million people, of which 1 million are natives. No one will protest your nation if you follow the rules.

1. Romic is not allowed to auction
2. No dictatorial or oppressive countries may bid
3. Militias are in place, but you must at least announce in this thread that you're sending forces (specify at least number) to occupy them

Starting bid for all 3 islands is $150 billion ($50 billion per colony). Please enter your bids now!

I protest this as the colonies were already bought by treaty. The player agreed to split the lands.

Could you provide some information about the colonies you are selling, such as its natural resources and geographic features? And could you explain the reason for barring Romic from participating in the auction?

OK, here's a bit of detail:

Colony: New Lolloh

New Lolloh is a part of an island, tropical, with a population of about 3 million, including 800.000 natives. Its primary exports are raw rubber, tropical fruits, and various fish. Think New Guinea, but with US-level infrastructure. However, the island is having political problems. In recent months, a far-right national liberation movement of about 15.000 has been fighting pro-government militia and troops for control of the colony. You would have to contend with a fairly large guerrilla insurgency if you bought the islands.

Colony: Lollohian Vokolyia

This is actually a chain of about 6 islands. All 6 islands have rich, fertile soil, and are very good for farming. It has a total population of 300.000 people, none of them natives as the islands were previously uninhabited. Its primary exports are grain-type crops and fish. Think the Falkland Islands, but larger and with US Midwestern soil. There is also a national liberation movement, though it is significantly smaller, at 3.000 people, and less effective due to a lack of areas where they can hide. Clashes with pro-government militia usually end with government victories.

Colony: New Tyvar

The most recent of Lolloh's colonies. This chip of island has 700.000 people on it, including 400.000 natives. Its primary exports are fish, though the economy's a bit shaky since the colony is in its infancy. It's climate is similar to New Lolloh's. Since the colony is so new, no armed opposition has been levied against it, though the government is still trying to establish relations with the native people. If you take over this colony, you'd have to pacify a large native populace.

Why is Romic bared from buying?

Simple: He's trying to buy up my country, and I don't like it. Further, I can do anything I want with my islands, nuke them if I want. Also,
Romic: It isn't a treaty violation. If you have a treaty with a country, and then that country is overrun (as would technically be the case with Imperium Reich), then that treaty (or clause of that treaty, for that matter), would be void. If you give someone 20 bucks to a guy with nothing, and then he goes and spends the money at a restaurant, eats the food, and dies, you wouldn't expect to get your 20 bucks back, would you?

The Empire of Rednax will gladly offer 150 billion Credits (or the equivalent of this amount in your nation's currency), for the Lollohian Vokolyia Island Chain.

We will look for a more peaceful way to deal with trouble makers.

OOC: Guys, make sure that your nation has the capability to offer hundreds of billions for three colonies. If you don't, your nation would (ICly) face varieties of consequences from paying such a high price. Not trying to be a dictator, but I just like to see things be done with at least some realism, especially if the trillion barrier is broken.

The Republic of Vectors is willing to offer 800 billion dollars from our defence budjet alone, with another 100 billion coming from our social budjet. We are willing to offer such high numbers due to the military potential of far away colonies and the exta income tax that would help subsidize the devellopment there.

Postby Common Territories » Fri Oct 25, 2013 10:54 am

The Empire of Common Territories would usually not participate in such actions. OOC speaking, it's not really my desire to join in the wank off of cash threads. Regardless, your description of the islands and the opportunity have swayed me a bit on at least making an offer on two of the islands with a detailed explanation what would happen to them if TECT does win control.

Anyways; the TECT government has prepared an offer of two hundred billion NSD for Lollohian Vokolyia and New Tyvar. These two colonies interest TECT because of our desire for farming lands (which would profit greatly under our economy) and the fact they are similar in ideology (conservative to moderate). So, we are generously offering one hundred billion for each island. We are not interested in your first colony because it is not worth our time to deal with a civil war, whether we could deal with it fast or not. Regardless, TECT would easily make peace with the local citizens along with natives.

Lollohian Vokolyia: This colony would profit under TECT rule. Although the nation itself is nationally conservative, we do not fight tooth an nail against other ideologies (except the real extremes). This colony, under TECT rule, would profit greatly under the TECT economy -- which has high demand for agriculture and foods. Under TECT national government, this colony would need to go through a short term government/military domination to evaluate and gain full understanding of the territory. In the meantime, new elections of public offices will be held; under the Empire's laws, this land should be fine to become an Imperial State (similar to federal state). in accordance with protection and safety, TECT will build military instillation and deploy military forces to protect the territory; something around 20,000 to 30,000 could be deployed. TECT will of course also be changing things a lot within the colony but not to negative affects of citizens. Under TECT law, militias are legal to the point that they do not threaten the government with actual force and are in place to defend members; internal fighting in the country (against other citizens) will not be permitted and those found performing war acts will be either arrested or killed if they resist with violence.

New Tyvar: Under TECT, this land will become an Imperial State after its mandatory observation period. Much of the same that was explained above will happen here as well. Economic opportunity is of course great here being so raw in development. The government will be the same as above, until new elections for public office of course. Military deployments will be around the same to a maximum of 50,000. And TECT would be sure to pacify and remain in full contact with native peoples. It is hoped that all colonists (this colony and above) embrace Commoner citizenship and the new opportunities they are given, if under our rule of course.

And that is my offer, in basic context.

OCC: This is just a message. I wont be upping the offer like..... others. I will not be throwing cash uselessly but I am open to negotiations of course. Spending near the amount of many people are spending is asinine and my offer is realistic, generous, and very reasonable. You can take my offer or not Lolloh, it will not hurt me either way if you choose mine or one of these.... meh people.

Eurostine's bid is vetoed due to his previous attempt at colonizing Lolloh and threatening to nuke my country if he lost a dozen sailors.

Due to it being higher than others, the auction for Lollohian Vokolyia and New Tyvar is CLOSED. They are sold to the Common Territories for $100 billion each.

OOC I'm impressed also by your eloquence. I wish that there was a thumps up emoticon.

Concluding, I am giving the United Kingdom of Dutchland-UK-Prussia ownership of New Lolloh for $325 billion (about a third). This bid is also CLOSED.

Thank for your bidding and time! My colonies are now sold off. Happy joys to you purchasers! And be happy as well, not-purchasers! You can just invade and get it for a tidy profit of $0.00!
