Ah, that's terribly unfortunate.

Surely this is the sort of thing that ought to have mentions in the OP, so that people know what is and is not open. :p That application was not a small investment of time...

In any case, I'll let the application stand, just in case that the reservation does expire at some point.

I will add that I have some time constraints here.

For the moment I can easily put out a 2,000~3,000 word post every day if I need to (and if I actually have something interesting to write about, which will probably be the bottleneck) and I said so on the strawpoll, but that's only until the end of the month and I'll probably be back down to 2~3 posts a week in September.

Honestly, a post a week is all we're expecting from folks given the time constraints (and the reality of going back to school / work). So you're more than good to go.

Because "a few weeks before the vacation ends" is exactly when people start to get bored of doing nothing all summer and crawl out of the dark corners of the internet.

Full Nation Name : The All-Indian People's National Republic
Short Nation Name : India
Flag / National Symbols:
(Image)

Government Type : Leninist One-Party State
Official Political Ideology : Naxalite Maoism
Head of State : Kanu Sanyal
Head of Government : Kanu Sanyal
Government Description : Unitary Bicameral Republic, in which the Chancellor resides over the People's National Committee and the Revolutionary Congress

Territory :
(Image)
Capital City : Calcutta- the largest city in India, Calcutta is also the model after which many cities along the Ganges River Delta are modeled after- a utilitarian, functional, efficient city, with a sprawling industrial core at its heart.
Population : 1.005 billion

Majority/Official Culture : While all citizens of India are considered Indian, there are several distinct cultures; the dominant culture is that of the Bengal Hindis, with Hindi culture in general holding dominance over most of the nation. Most enclaves of Muslim culture, particularly Bengali Muslims, have been forced to either secularize, convert to Hinduism, or relocated to the far West.

Majority/State Religion : Secular government/Hindu majority

Major Industries / Economic sectors: Agriculture, Agricultural Products including Fertilizers and Heavy Equipment, Vehicle and Heavy Equipment manufacturing, Aerospace manufacturing
Amount of Industrialization : The Ganges River Valley is overall quite industrial, around the same level of China at the same time in history. However, further south and west, the nation is much more rural in the interior, with less dense industrial centers along the coastline.
Economic Description : The Indian economy was rebuilt from the ground up following the Indian Civil War, with a de-prioritization of the old small farming method of agriculture and a move towards larger, more industrialized farms. While the Indian economy is stronger than it was before the revolution, it is still quite weak, with attempted diversification projects only recently taking effect. While more diverse than in recent decades, the economy is still highly specialized, giving it as of now the role of a breadbasket...

Technological Level : Early 90s
Magic and other shenanigans? (If any exists) : no

Military Description
The Indian Military is one of the largest in its world, only beaten by the PROC and the USSR, with a total of 2.9 million active personnel. It is, across the board, relatively poorly equipped, with an emphasis on Quantity over Quality, and an even higher emphasis on simplicity and reliability. Most Indian equipment and ships are imported from the USSR or PROC, however a significant minority of small arms, and a majority of aircraft, are Indian manufactured.

Army: The Indian Military is one of the largest in its world, only beaten by the PROC and the USSR, with a total of 2.9 million active personnel, the largest portion of which is stationed on the Indo-Pakistani and Indo-Afghani borders. They are relatively poorly equipped, however, with mainly secondhand Soviet and Chinese equipment, or equipment from them built on license. Those few Indian weapons and armoured vehicles are considered generally to be slightly inferior to their Chinese counterparts. The Indian armoured corps is small, with most of India's emphasis being put on infantry, and with most of their armoured force being made up of apcs, ifvs, and faster, lighter tanks.

Navy: The Indian Navy is rather small, mostly consisting of Destroyers, Frigates, and Coastal Defense vessels. Their primary mission is patrolling the area between the Eastern Indian coastline and the Andaman Islands. Before the event, however, the AIPNR had been in talks with the USSR to purchase older vessels and vessels the USSR no longer needed as part of a Naval Expansion project. No ships had yet been delivered.

Air Force: The Indian Air Force, compared to the Navy and Army, is actually relatively well equipped, and large as well. Built up as part of an Aerospace arms race with Pakistan in the late 1980s, the Air Force is actually mostly made up of Indian-designed aircraft, with a heavy emphasis on Close Air support and Strategic bombing.

National Goals : dont explode, maybe colonize pakistan and sri lanka


History : The AIPNR, or All Indian National People's Republic, was proclaimed on April 22nd, 1969, at a meeting of the All-Indian Coordination Community of Communist Revolutionaries, or AICCCR. Proclaimed by Kanu Sanyal, the AIPNR was rather weak at first, securing only support among downtrodden tribes and a minority of college students, it rapidly gained popularity following the 1971 Indian intervention in the Bengali Independence war. What had started as Guerrilla warfare rapidly blossomed into all-out civil war as Calcutta was pronounced the capital of the revolution. Numerous Disparate factions rose against the central government of New Delhi, however most eventually collapsed into the fold of Kanu Sanyal's AIPNR. The war was bloody, though the Southern half of the subcontinent felt almost none of the fighting, most of it happening around New Delhi, the western border with Pakistan, and the eastern border with Bangladesh. While the AIPNR initially fought for the liberation of Bangladesh from both Pakistan and India, eventually the movement swayed towards integrating the Eastern Bengal delta into India proper.

The Indian Civil War lasted 6 years until the end of the decisive Siege of New Delhi by AIPNR forces. The city, and central government, formally surrendered on March 17th, 1977, capitulating to the AIPNR in exchange for the Revolutionary forces driving out the Pakistanis. Pakistan and the Transitionary Indian government signed a formal ceasefire a week later, although a treaty to end the war was never signed due to disputes over the Janmu-Kashmir area. In the immediate aftermath of the Civil War, India aligned itself closely to both the PROC and USSR, even though it knew that balancing both was not a move that could last, as it concentrated on rebuilding itself and establishing the new AIPNR government as a more permanent institution. The capital of Calcutta was chosen due to its significance to the revolution, while New Delhi was demoted to merely regional capital of Haryana. While the Indo-Sino-Soviet alliance was short lived initially, it served as the groundwork for the Sino-Soviet Reconciliation of 1989, and served to bring the Indian economy back up to pre-civil-war levels much faster than what would've otherwise been possible.

Most of the late 70s and early 80s were spent rebuilding the Indian economy and industrial base from the ground up, as the Communist Party of India reevaluated what the previous Republican government had done, or rather not done, to bring India into the industrial age. The Ganges River Valley was chosen as the country's new industrial heartland as cities along the river were built up, while the more untouched southern portions of the nation were either left alone, or repurposed for mass agriculture. The latter half of the period is also known as when the Bengal Colonization project began, in which Hindi Indians were encouraged to settle in the Bengal Delta, while Muslims were forced to either renounce their faith or be relocated. The rapid Indianization of the delta was considered a success, however the West decried the action, encouraging Pakistan to temporarily break the ceasefire and encroach on Indian Kashmir. The offensive was quickly repelled, however, and status quo was restored, though formal peace still has not been signed.

The late 80s were a time of growth for the industrializing nation, as while the economy had at least recovered since the Civil War, it was still weak compared even to its Communist contemporaries. 1987 saw the execution of a new diversification project, wherein the Indian economy started expanding from just farming equipment to more general vehicle and industrial equipment production, though quality of said new equipment is questionable at best. 1989 saw the reunification of the Communist Bloc as the USSR began feeling a major economic downturn, forcing it to come to the negotiating table with the Maoists of China and India. While the two factions maintain fierce ideological differences, the Sino-Soviet Reconciliation was seen as necessary to repel the influence of the West on the Eastern Bloc, and to help mutually reinforce the economies of the three major powers. Time would only tell if this alliance would be enough to save the USSR from the coming decade, time that India would never get to see...

At the turn of the decade, India initially felt largely the same as the late 80s. However, late 1990 saw a fierce buildup of the Revolutionary Army and Air Force on the Pakistani-Afghani border as India sought to aid in the Soviet Occupation of Afghanistan and put an end to the conflict with Pakistan once and for all. The offensive was scheduled to begin February 12th, 1991. Indian forces would storm across the border into Pakistani-occupied Janmu and Kashmir while simultaneously making an armoured push into the vast deserts of Baluchistan, pincering and surrounding central Pakistan and setting India up to both aid in the occupation of Afghanistan and to strike at the heart of the Pakistani government. However, the morning of February 12th, the Indian offensive would find nothing; no signs of life, no buildings, no roads. The event had occurred...

Full Nation Name:The Theocratic Republic of Sumaävaa
Short Nation Name:Sumaävaa (Su-mAE-vaa)
Flag / National Symbols:
Flag

Government Type: Republic
Official Political Ideology: Tiensänist Theocracy
Head of State: Grand Priestess Saija Tahtinen
Head of Government : Prime Minister Kyllikki Laakkonen
Government Description: The Republic of Sumaävaa is governed by the Council of High Priestesses and the Provincial Congress (the modern descendent of the Council of Chiefs). The Council of High Priestesses acts as both the upper house for the government and governing advisors for the Grand High Priestess. The Grand High Priestess is the Head of State for both the Republic and the Tiensänist Church. The Grand High Priestess has full veto power and can only be removed by a vote from the Council of High Priestesses. The Provincial Congress acts as the lower house and is provided over by the Prime Minister who serves as Head of Government.

Territory: The Scandinavian and Khola Peninsulas
Territorial Ambitions: Anything they can take
Capital City:
Population : 36,000,000

Majority/Official Culture: Sumaävaa

Majority/State Religion: Tiensänism

Major Industries / Economic sectors: Wood, aircraft, naval vessels, furniture, steal, aluminium, titanium, tourism, religion.
Amount of Industrialization: Sumaävaa’s large number of industrial cities has long made it an economic powerhouse of the region. Sumaävaa is not, and has never been shy about using it’s large swath of natural resources for it’s nations own gain. It is for this reason that the northern nation has remained one of the most dominant military and economic powers on the north Meridonian continent. It’s major exports include raw industrial materials such as wood, and metals. Sumaävaa is not one to purely defile nature, however, and all industrial efforts to extract resources are done carefully and with the approval of the Tiensänist church.
Economic Description: The Sumaävaan economy is largely built around the export of raw materials, such as wood and metals, industrial goods, and military equipment in exchange for food. Sumaävaa has long been one of the main arms producers on the Meridonian continent rivaled only by the nations of Dachalia and Valden in ground and air equipment. Sumaävaa is the largest producer of contract naval equipment in Meridon.

While fresh water is easy to come by for the lake dotted northern country food is not. Sumaävaa is almost entirely dependent on food imports to feed its people. Were it not for a fairly sizable fishing industry it would be entirely dependent on forign food imports should it wish to sustain both its population and level of industrialization.

Technological Level:
A mix of modern and most modern tech. The vast majority of technology is the cutting edge of currently available modern tech. There are a handful of more advanced units fitted with things such as railguns. Civilian technology is far more advanced with effective and efficient hydrogen fuel cells, and a fully nuclear / green energy system.


Magic and other shenanigans?: “Magic” has always been a practice in Sumaävaan religious tradition. Battle mages were a common site on ancient fields of combat and many theorize it is their presence that allowed the Sumaävaan’s to defeat the ancient Valden Empire. The time and training needed to become a mage are very intensive and so it is rare for a mage to practice more than one type of magic. Since magic is, at its core, merely bending reality to one's will, there are a small number of mages who have broken away from the classical schools of magic and developed their own unique spells and abilities along with them. The only way to legally study magic is at a designated university. Universities are run by the Tiensänist Church and funded by the military. Attendance at such a school carries with it mandatory military service. University attendance is restricted to women only.

Military Description
Though generally neutral in most military disputes the Republic of Sumaävaa has always maintained a fairly large military force. Since the end of the Second Valden War however the Sumaavaan military has been one of the largest in all of Meridon. The reasoning for maintaining such a large military was the post war tension caused Sumaävaa’s refusal to join the Finorskian Supranational Union at the end of the war. Since then they have maintained a strong military presence along their border, and a powerful navy ready to “defend” the country against hostile powers such as the Communist Capisarian Federation, and the United Nations of Finorskia.

Service in the military is voluntary though a conscription system does exist to fill out numbers if there is a shortage of active personnel. Enlistment was once restricted to men only but has since been opened up to women as well. Women enlisting in the Sumaavaan military are given an automatic two rank promotion. While in basic they are held to a higher standard then the men and failure to meet that standard results in their being washed out. Upon completion of basic training female enlistees are given another automatic promotion to the rank of Kersantti (Sergeant). Officer schools are paths from enlistment to commissioning and are still restricted to women only. The inclusion of women in the enlisted ranks has not removed the ability for men to obtain non-commissioned officer ranks.


The combined Sumaavaan military numbers roughly 200,000 active duty personnel with about 300,000 reserves.
Army:
The Sumaävaan army makes up the bulk of the nation's armed forces. The Army Corps of Regulars comprises 3 divisions:

1st Division (Infantry)
2nd Division (Cavalry)
3rd Division (Airborne)
4th Division (Logistics)

The rest of the armies personnel fill support and bureaucratic positions.

Total Manpower:
25,000 combat and combat adjacent personnel
75,000 non-combat personnel



Navy:
The Sumaävaa navy has long since been the pride of the nation. At one point it consisted of a massive surface fleet with numerous carriers. It has since shrunk in size and converted ever increasingly to a submerged attack force.

Current Naval Force
1st Fleet
1st Attack Squadron
1x Palastuss-class (Alicorn) Super Heavy SLBM / Carrier Submarine
5x Amiralli-class (Yasen) Attack Submarines

1st Patrol Squadron
2x Sankari-class (Atago) Guided Missile Destroyers
4x Maakunta-class (Baden-Wurtemburg) Frigates

2nd Fleet
2nd Attack Squadron
1x Jumala-class (Scinfaxi) Super Heavy SLBM / Carrier Submarine
4x Amiralli-class (Yasen) Attack Submarines

2nd Patrol Squadron
2x Sankari-class (Atago) Guided Missile Destroyers
4x Maakunta-class (Baden-Wurtemburg) Frigates

3rd Fleet
3rd Attack Squadron
1x Jumala-class (Scinfaxi) Super Heavy SLBM / Carrier Submarine
4x Amiralli-class (Yasen) Attack Submarines


3rd Patrol Squadron
2x Sankari-class (Atago) Guided Missile Destroyers
4x Maakunta-class (Baden-Wurtemburg) Frigates


Total Personnel (including bureaucrats, maintenance crews, and security): 60,000


Air Force:
The Sumaävaan Air Force is tasked with the protection of the skies above Sumaävaa. Though the smallest of the 3 branches it is more than capable of fulfilling the task at hand. The Airforce is comprised of:

1st and 2nd Air Defense Groups: 72 fighters

1st Bomber Group: 32 Strike Fighters

1st and 2nd: Support Groups

1st Transport Group

Total personnel (including bureaucrats, maintenance crews, and security): 20,000

National Goals :
Having just been suddenly ISOT’ed and finding themselves now bordering much more powerful nations Sumaävaa’s goals will remain largely unchanged. Defend itself and culture from hostile incursion, make strong allies, trade for necessary resources and try to stick to itself. Should the opportunity present itself Sumaävaa may try and expand its borders but this is unlikely.

History:
Ancient and Medieval History
The history of Sumaävaa begins with a number of religiously similar tribal nations in the north eastern corner of the Meridonian Continent. Originally these tribal nations had a split governance system where in rulership was in the hands of male patriarchs and religious rule fell to the female shamans. For thousands of years people of the Sumaävaan culture group had no contact with other cultures with the exceptions of the Finobarn people who they drove from their homes.
In 708CE the Sumaävaan people had their first contact with non-Sumaävaan’s when a group of Fishermen discovered the destroyed Verdean settlement of Boreales del Norte. Along with the settlement they also discovered the dead dark skinned bodies of the Verdeans who had built the settlement. The Shamans believed these people demons and the site was declared unholy and forbidden. As the years progressed the Sumaävaan people met more and more outsiders and by 850 CE they had begun to adopt feudalism.

In 932CE Isarlean Merchants established a series of settlements along the Sumaävaan coast. These settlements displaced a number of local tribal nations and by 947 had a population of around 3,000 across 7 towns. The Sumaävaan people struggled to push back the Isarleans in a number of wars from 960-1061CE which saw the Sumaävaan tribal nations losing their sovereignty and becoming a protectorate of Isarle. The Sumaävaan people would lose more and more sovereignty as a result of having to sign unfair treaties to get the Isarlean’s to protect them from the invading Valden Empire.

Sometime between 1100 and 1138CE the religious leaders of Sumaävaa, fearful of what might become of Sumaaväan culture and religion met at High Rock, a sacred mountain top location said to be where humankind first emerged from Louvuss’s garden. At this meeting the Shamans declared an edict of “No Confidence in Man” and established a High Council of Priestesses (the change from Shaman to Priestess was dones as a political move to enforce their political power in the eyes of the Isarléans). The Edict essentially declared that the men, who had been ordained by the god of creation to lead and protect womankind, had failed in their sacred duties and allowed a heretical outside group to invade and occupy sacred land, and infest the Sumaaväan people with demons. This edict thus disbanded all authority that the tribal leaders held from the Sumaaväan religion and put that power instead in the hands of the new priestesses. The Establishment of the Council of High Priestesses was the official beginning of the Theocratic Republic of Sumaaväa.

Between 1129 adn 1148 CE after taking control and reforming their local tribal nations, using the extreme devotion of the Sumaaväan people, the new Council of High Priestess went before the king of Isarle and re-negotiated their treaties. Sumaaväa regained its sovereignty in exchange for a 99 year lease on the Isarlean ports.

In 1350 the Council constructed the 10 Grand Temples which would become the central holy sites of the reformed Sumaaväan religion.

Modern History
For most of its early years as a unified republic Sumaaväa chose to remain relatively isolationist. It focused heavily on protecting the culture and heritage of the Sumaaväan people. The theocratic government developed a number of public religious schools and colleges that allowed Sumaaväan women to attend and be educated. These were the first such public schools in Meridon. Public lower education would eventually be extended to men, but even in the modern era men lack access to such privilege.

Eventually Sumaaväa began to take advantage of the constant wars it’s neighbors fought, using their weekend state to poach useful territory from them. Sometimes other nations would attempt to fight Sumaaväa only to be deterred. By the 21st century no country, not the Verdean Empire, Valden, Nordlen, or Tokushima had successfully conquered any Sumaaväan land.

During the 1700’s Sumaaväa also began to build itself up as a naval power, and the Sumaaväan Navy would eventually be the force to defeat the grand Imperial Verdean Navy. By the 1940’s the Sumaaväan Navy was the largest, most powerful, and most advanced Navy on the continent. While it is no longer the largest, the modern Sumaaväan Navy is considered one of the most deadly in the region and serves as a powerful deterrent against possible invasion.

As Sumaaväa entered into the modern it’s culture continued to adapt and change. New fashion trends came to Sumaaväa and clothing designed to accentuate sexyness in other countries was viewed as accentuating power in Sumaaväa.

Modern Sumaaväan is in many ways different and in many ways similar to what it was over 2000 years ago. It is highly matriachical and religion dictates the lives of its citizens. Things considered illegal or taboo in the Sumaaväan religion are considered illegal and taboo in society.



Well it was over 6 pages long in G docs so you tell me.

Since magic is, at its core, merely bending reality to one's will, there are a small number of mages who have broken away from the classical schools of magic and developed their own unique spells and abilities along with them. The only way to legally study magic is at a designated university. Universities are run by the Tiensänist Church and funded by the military. Attendance at such a school carries with it mandatory military service. University attendance is restricted to women only.

Military Description
Though generally neutral in most military disputes the Republic of Sumaävaa has always maintained a fairly large military force. Since the end of the Second Valden War however the Sumaavaan military has been one of the largest in all of Meridon. The reasoning for maintaining such a large military was the post war tension caused Sumaävaa’s refusal to join the Finorskian Supranational Union at the end of the war. Since then they have maintained a strong military presence along their border, and a powerful navy ready to “defend” the country against hostile powers such as the Communist Capisarian Federation, and the United Nations of Finorskia.

Service in the military is voluntary though a conscription system does exist to fill out numbers if there is a shortage of active personnel. Enlistment was once restricted to men only but has since been opened up to women as well. Women enlisting in the Sumaavaan military are given an automatic two rank promotion. While in basic they are held to a higher standard then the men and failure to meet that standard results in their being washed out. Upon completion of basic training female enlistees are given another automatic promotion to the rank of Kersantti (Sergeant). Officer schools are paths from enlistment to commissioning and are still restricted to women only. The inclusion of women in the enlisted ranks has not removed the ability for men to obtain non-commissioned officer ranks.


The combined Sumaavaan military numbers roughly 200,000 active duty personnel with about 300,000 reserves.
Army:
The Sumaävaan army makes up the bulk of the nation's armed forces. The Army Corps of Regulars comprises 3 divisions:

1st Division (Infantry)
2nd Division (Cavalry)
3rd Division (Airborne)
4th Division (Logistics)

The rest of the armies personnel fill support and bureaucratic positions.

Total Manpower:
25,000 combat and combat adjacent personnel
75,000 non-combat personnel



Navy:
The Sumaävaa navy has long since been the pride of the nation. At one point it consisted of a massive surface fleet with numerous carriers. It has since shrunk in size and converted ever increasingly to a submerged attack force.

Current Naval Force
1st Fleet
1st Attack Squadron
1x Palastuss-class (Alicorn) Super Heavy SLBM / Carrier Submarine

4x Maakunta-class (Baden-Wurtemburg) Frigates


Total Personnel (including bureaucrats, maintenance crews, and security): 60,000


Air Force:
The Sumaävaan Air Force is tasked with the protection of the skies above Sumaävaa. Though the smallest of the 3 branches it is more than capable of fulfilling the task at hand. The Airforce is comprised of:

1st and 2nd Air Defense Groups: 72 fighters

1st Bomber Group: 32 Strike Fighters

1st and 2nd: Support Groups

1st Transport Group

Total personnel (including bureaucrats, maintenance crews, and security): 20,000

National Goals :
Having just been suddenly ISOT’ed and finding themselves now bordering much more powerful nations Sumaävaa’s goals will remain largely unchanged. Defend itself and culture from hostile incursion, make strong allies, trade for necessary resources and try to stick to itself. Should the opportunity present itself Sumaävaa may try and expand its borders but this is unlikely.

History:
Ancient and Medieval History
The history of Sumaävaa begins with a number of religiously similar tribal nations in the north eastern corner of the Meridonian Continent. Originally these tribal nations had a split governance system where in rulership was in the hands of male patriarchs and religious rule fell to the female shamans. For thousands of years people of the Sumaävaan culture group had no contact with other cultures with the exceptions of the Finobarn people who they drove from their homes.
In 708CE the Sumaävaan people had their first contact with non-Sumaävaan’s when a group of Fishermen discovered the destroyed Verdean settlement of Boreales del Norte. Along with the settlement they also discovered the dead dark skinned bodies of the Verdeans who had built the settlement. The Shamans believed these people demons and the site was declared unholy and forbidden. As the years progressed the Sumaävaan people met more and more outsiders and by 850 CE they had begun to adopt feudalism.

In 932CE Isarlean Merchants established a series of settlements along the Sumaävaan coast. These settlements displaced a number of local tribal nations and by 947 had a population of around 3,000 across 7 towns. The Sumaävaan people struggled to push back the Isarleans in a number of wars from 960-1061CE which saw the Sumaävaan tribal nations losing their sovereignty and becoming a protectorate of Isarle. The Sumaävaan people would lose more and more sovereignty as a result of having to sign unfair treaties to get the Isarlean’s to protect them from the invading Valden Empire.

Sometime between 1100 and 1138CE the religious leaders of Sumaävaa, fearful of what might become of Sumaaväan culture and religion met at High Rock, a sacred mountain top location said to be where humankind first emerged from Louvuss’s garden. At this meeting the Shamans declared an edict of “No Confidence in Man” and established a High Council of Priestesses (the change from Shaman to Priestess was dones as a political move to enforce their political power in the eyes of the Isarléans). The Edict essentially declared that the men, who had been ordained by the god of creation to lead and protect womankind, had failed in their sacred duties and allowed a heretical outside group to invade and occupy sacred land, and infest the Sumaaväan people with demons. This edict thus disbanded all authority that the tribal leaders held from the Sumaaväan religion and put that power instead in the hands of the new priestesses. The Establishment of the Council of High Priestesses was the official beginning of the Theocratic Republic of Sumaaväa.

Between 1129 adn 1148 CE after taking control and reforming their local tribal nations, using the extreme devotion of the Sumaaväan people, the new Council of High Priestess went before the king of Isarle and re-negotiated their treaties. Sumaaväa regained its sovereignty in exchange for a 99 year lease on the Isarlean ports.

In 1350 the Council constructed the 10 Grand Temples which would become the central holy sites of the reformed Sumaaväan religion.

Modern History
For most of its early years as a unified republic Sumaaväa chose to remain relatively isolationist. It focused heavily on protecting the culture and heritage of the Sumaaväan people. The theocratic government developed a number of public religious schools and colleges that allowed Sumaaväan women to attend and be educated. These were the first such public schools in Meridon. Public lower education would eventually be extended to men, but even in the modern era men lack access to such privilege.

Eventually Sumaaväa began to take advantage of the constant wars it’s neighbors fought, using their weekend state to poach useful territory from them. Sometimes other nations would attempt to fight Sumaaväa only to be deterred. By the 21st century no country, not the Verdean Empire, Valden, Nordlen, or Tokushima had successfully conquered any Sumaaväan land.

During the 1700’s Sumaaväa also began to build itself up as a naval power, and the Sumaaväan Navy would eventually be the force to defeat the grand Imperial Verdean Navy. By the 1940’s the Sumaaväan Navy was the largest, most powerful, and most advanced Navy on the continent. While it is no longer the largest, the modern Sumaaväan Navy is considered one of the most deadly in the region and serves as a powerful deterrent against possible invasion.

As Sumaaväa entered into the modern it’s culture continued to adapt and change. New fashion trends came to Sumaaväa and clothing designed to accentuate sexyness in other countries was viewed as accentuating power in Sumaaväa.

Modern Sumaaväan is in many ways different and in many ways similar to what it was over 2000 years ago. It is highly matriachical and religion dictates the lives of its citizens. Things considered illegal or taboo in the Sumaaväan religion are considered illegal and taboo in society.

the weebs have arrived

Done, finally.
Full Nation Name : Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere
Short Nation Name : The Co-Prosperity Sphere, East Asia, GEACPS, Japan
Flag / National Symbols: "Rising Sun" Flag of GEACPS

Flag of the Empire of Japan | War Flag of the IJA | Naval Ensign of the IJN | Imperial Seal of Japan

Flag of the Kingdom of Thailand | Flag of the Republic of Indonesia | Flag of the Empire of Manchuria | Flag of the State of Burma | Flag of the Republic of the Philippines | Flag of the Empire of Vietnam | Flag of the Kingdom of Kampuchea | Flag of the Kingdom of Luang Phrabang | Flag of the Federated Sultanate of Malaya | Flag of the Kingdom of Sarawak | Flag of the Sultanate of Brunei | Flag of the Federation of North Borneo


Government Type : International Organization (GEACPS as a whole) | Unitary Dominant-Party Authoritarian Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy (Japan specifically)
Official Political Ideology : Pan-Asianism
Head of State : [GEACPS] The Pan-Asian Conference
[Japan] His Imperial Majesty the Emperor of Japan
Head of Government : [GEACPS] General Secretary Prajin Juntong
[Japan] Prime Minister Hakubun Shimomura
Government Description : The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere is a supranational union centered around… East Asia, as it were. There are myriad councils related to everything from trade relations to military cooperation, but two primary ones: the Pan-Asian Conference seats the heads of government of the Sphere, and the Pan-Asian Assembly, which consists of representatives appointed by the member states of the Sphere through a variety of methods (most often, either appointment by the head of state or head of government or by a vote in the legislature), with two representatives per nation, with an additional representative for housing the capital of GEACPS (which, completely coincidentally, means Japan has the most representatives). Although GEACPS is supposedly equal, it is dominated by Japan.

To truly understand the machinations of the Sphere one must understand the government of the Empire of Japan. Despite all of its turmoil, it is still fundamentally structured by the 1889 Meiji Constitution. A bicameral legislature, the Imperial Diet, is divided into the House of Peers, appointed by the Emperor, and the House of Representatives, who are appointed by popular vote. The Emperor appoints the Prime Minister- although he typically goes with the choice of the Diet in such matters. The Emperor functions as the divine head of state: he appoints judges, is the commander-in-chief of the military, and can dissolve the House of Representatives to call for new elections. On paper, a fairly democratic system not dissimilar to the Westminster System of the Anglosphere.

In practice, Japanese politics are their own monster. The government has been dominated by the Imperial Rule Assistance Association, or Taisei Yokusankai, since the Greater East Asian War. Formed in 1940 to remove sectionalism from Japanese politics, in practice it quickly sprouted its own internal divisions. Even though it is no longer the sole legal political party, it easily remains the most dominant- the most popular opposition party does not break 10% of the vote. Factionalism and cliques mark the government, making the tenure of any Prime Minister a house of cards that requires compromises, intrigue, and cooperation (and, perhaps, a healthy dose of greased palms) to survive. The Army and the Navy are beasts that refuse to be tamed, outright claiming to answer only directly to the Emperor and leaving civilian oversight difficult at best.

Territory : Yellow on the map
Territorial Ambitions :
Capital City : Tokyo. The pearl of the Orient. Its splendor outshines London, Paris, Germania, and New York. It is the world's largest urban economy by GDP, the largest metro area in terms of both population and area. Tokyo's architecture varies wildly between traditional and modern, highlighting the importance of the city as both the cultural heart of the Japanese Empire and the economic center of the Sphere.
Population : 882.16 million across the Sphere (233.11 million in Japan and her colonies, 267.7 million in Indonesia, 107.4 million in Manchukuo, 95.54 million in Vietnam, 69.43 million in Thailand, 53.71 million in Burma, 24.82 million in Malaya, 16.25 million in Kampuchea, 7.06 million in Luang Phrabang, 2.81 million in Sarawak, 3.9 million in North Borneo, 0.43 million in Brunei)

Majority/Official Culture : GEACPS claims to celebrate the myriad cultures of Asia, but in reality Japanese cultural influence is endemic across the Sphere. Japanese is not the majority culture, per se, but it is certainly the one with the most influence. Japanese customs dominate international relations between member states, Japanese influence in culture can be felt and seen. Most Japanese media- from movies to video games to anime- finds most of its consumers not in the Empire but in the Sphere. Japanese-style restaurants line the streets, often competing more with each other than with the local cuisine. What is trendy in Tokyo is, by the end of the week, almost certainly trendy in Jakarta, Bangkok, and Huế.

Majority/State Religion : The Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere and the Empire of Japan are both officially secular, even if Japan itself has many tendencies to support State Shinto. The three largest religions in the Sphere are Buddhism, Islam, and Shintoism in roughly that order, although many Shinto worshippers are either syncretic with other religions (primarily Buddhism) or don’t report themselves as Shinto due to the term itself having little meaning to them or them thinking it means membership in Shinto sects or shrines. It only gets more complicated as one looks at more folk religions and the other minor religions that dot the Sphere.

Major Industries / Economic sectors: Consumer goods, high tech, financial services, arms manufacturing, auto manufacturing, agriculture, energy
Amount of Industrialization : Industrialization varies throughout the Sphere, with the heaviest industry being in the Empire of Japan and Manchukuo. The other nations of the Sphere enjoy modern luxuries and infrastructure, and are certainly not primitive, but by-and-large they are more agrarian and focus more on light industry than would otherwise be typical than nations of their size due to their reliance on Japan.
Economic Description : Despite all pretenses to the contrary, GEACPS is firmly Japan’s economic sphere. The lion’s share of industry, plantations, and transportation is owned by Japanese Zaibatsu, massive, vertically-integrated industrial conglomerates that exemplify the phrase “oligopoly.” They work with the government and the government works with them: neither side has complete sway over the other, but they scratch each other’s backs often enough that the relationship drives the economic system of the entire GEACPS. The system is a simple but effective one: resources from the Sphere are transported back to the heavy industry in Japan or Manchukuo to make finished goods, which are then sold both at home in Japan and to the Sphere at large. This balance allows the Zaibatsu executives to grow fat and wealthy, Japan to hold preeminence over East Asia, and consumers across the Sphere to partake in the world’s largest consumerist economy: an absolute win for everybody involved, or so the idea goes in theory.

Technological Level : Modern
Magic and other shenanigans? :

Military Description

The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere’s militaries are highly standardized but not especially integrated. Japanese armed forces form the largest and most modern portion of the Sphere’s military force, with other nations typically using Japanese-made equipment. Joint Sphere deployments- authorized (at least on paper) by the Assembly- are the most common form of military operations, and are always spearheaded by Japan.

Pistol Round: 9x19mm Parabellum
Intermediate Round: 6.5x40mm
Rifle Round: 7.7x58mm Arisaka
Large-Caliber Round: 13.2x96mm Hotchkiss

Army: The Imperial Japanese Army is the pride of the Sphere and the envy of the world. No branch of the Sphere's militaries- land, air, or sea- can ever hope to match up to the glory of the IJA. Although not the largest army, it is efficient and modern- well-supplied and well-funded, capable of mass deployments and augmented by its allies serving as auxiliary forces. This combines with the fanaticism that has been a defining and endearing trait of the IJA since the Great East Asian War to form the best military branch in East Asia, or indeed perhaps the world.

(North Borneo does not have an active army and relies on the IJA’s Borneo Defense Army for military support)

Navy: The Imperial Japanese Navy is the pride of the Sphere and the envy of the world. The largest navy in its home world (albeit largely due to the number of patrol craft not listed here), the IJN forms the center of the Sphere’s naval forces.

Air Force: The assorted air forces of the Sphere vary in size and shape, with most aircraft- fixed-wing, rotary-wing, or UAV- sourced from Japanese aerospace firms.

Interestingly, Japan itself does not have an independent air force. The Imperial Japanese Army Air Service fulfills the roles of an air force (and is larger than most independent air forces), but is subordinated to the Imperial Japanese Army. The Imperial Japanese Naval Air Service, subordinated to the IJN, is a bit... overly equipped for the role of naval aviation due to the eternal rivalry between the IJA and IJN.

National Goals : Stabilize the situation both at home and aboard and bring back the economy after it collapses due to ISOTing. Expand markets for Japanese goods by any means necessary. Create a sphere of influence to facilitate economic recovery and military security. Maintain parity (or, if possible, superiority) over other potential rival powers.

History : The Great East Asian War started December 7th, 1941. In reaction to the ongoing oil embargo, the Washington embassy of the Empire of Japan delivered a declaration of war to the United States of America. 30 minutes later, aircraft from the Kidō Butai appeared over Pearl Harbor, intent on targeting the airfield and fuel tanks. Although some stray gunfire and bombs were aimed towards the fleet, it was relatively untouched, leading to Rear Admiral Husband E. Kimmel ordering the fleet to sortie. The second and third waves engaged the American fleet in open combat. Despite the presence of all three carriers from the US Pacific Fleet, there were simply too many Japanese aircraft, and the fleet was almost utterly annihilated.

The Battle of Hawaii was an immediate blow to US morale, and seemed to prove the decisive battle doctrine that the IJN had adopted. The same day, the IJN moved against European colonies in Southeast Asia. The next six months marked a string of victories for Japan across the Pacific, with the United States never able to quite recover from the loss of most of the Pacific Fleet, the United Kingdom too busy dealing with the fallout of Operation Sealion, and the Dutch too scattered after the fall of their homeland. Japanese marines raised the Rising Sun over Singapore in February, but it was the fall of Midway in June that ultimately led to the United States seeking peace. On December 7th, 1941, the US had sported 7 fleet carriers; after Midway only USS Yorktown, the so-called “Grey Ghost,” remained. A ceasefire was negotiated in July, with negotiations beginning in Hawaii. The Treaty of Honolulu, signed aboard the battleship Yamato on August 15th, 1942 (Showa 17) marked the end of the Pacific War and the beginning of Japan’s status as hegemon of Asia.

By 1950, it looked like Japan was going to be the leading superpower in the world. Asia was behind it in the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere, and its rival powers all suffered their own problems: America’s government was rocked by their defeat, while Germany’s economy had practically imploded when there was no more war to extract loot from. It was almost too good to be true. Of course, it was.

As it turns out, attempting to hold the nation in a state resembling permanent total war (the National Defense State, which had been in place since 1940), while also attempting to hold most of Asia through military strength alone, was slowly but surely eating away at Japan itself. GEACPS was mostly Japan’s own colonial playground, and the people of East Asia knew it. The IJA found itself tied down attempting to crush revolts and guerilla movements across the Sphere. The economy, the thing powered by the Sphere, was itself slowly threatening to stagnate: there is also so much of a market in Japan itself. The saviors of Japan this time were as unexpected as they were varied: Hayato Ikeda, a little-known member of the Ministry of Finance, Ichirō Hatoyama, a member of the House of Representatives and loyal member of the Taisei Yokusankai, but perhaps most shockingly was Nobusuke Kishi, the “Devil of Shōwa.” At Ikeda’s prodding, new economic guidelines were introduced, development incentives granted to sections of the Sphere that were not in open rebellion, and military spending drawn back slightly in the name of increasing the productivity of the Sphere and opening the Sphere itself as a market for even high-end goods like consumer electronics. Political liberalization ended the National Defense State, allowing Japanese citizens to enjoy the fruits of the conquest of East Asia. 1959 marked the marriage of the Crown Prince Akhitio with Aisin-Gioro Husheng, officially combining the royal families of Manchukuo and Japan.

The liberalization carried on into the 1960s. Military administrations across the Sphere were replaced by collaborationist governments, other governments in the Sphere were propped up and developed. GEACPS itself became more officialized, bureaucratized, and even perhaps a little more fair. Slowly but surely, things no longer looked quite so bleak. Discontent slowly faded until it could be stamped out without too much of a problem.

Even as Japan liberalized, it fought in the Cold War against Germany and America- supplying insurgents in the hell that was the Great African War to weaken both, while battling the American-backed Viet Minh in Indochina- with relatively few scruples. The Space Race lit up the stars as the world below burned: the Americans got the first man into space, Japan the first space station, Germans the first man on the moon. Nuclear weapons- never used in combat for fear of their terrible power- became the theoretical weapons of a Third World War, with each side stockpiling enough weapons to end the world several times over.

In 1989, His Majesty the Emperor passed away, marking the end of the Shōwa Era. Akihito became the new Emperor, marking the beginning of the Heisei era. The Cold War ultimately ended not with the feared bang, but with a whimper- successive governments in Japan and America led to a warming of relations. In 1992, the one-party system finally ended, leaving the Taisei Yokusankai as the supermajority but no longer the only legal political party. Japan's booming electronics industry gave it a distinct advantage as things turned increasingly digital in the 21st century.

In 2019, His Majesty the Emperor abdicated, citing concerns for his health, marking the end of the Heisei Era. The Crown Prince Yukihito ascended to the throne. The first abdication since 1817 naturally shook things up a bit, but ultimately nothing that could not be dealt with.

By 2020, things are going as they always have in Japan. The opposition parties struggle to have their voices heard against the monolith of the Taisei Yokusankai, which finds itself torn by factionalism. The status quo is a happy medium: Japan has grown rich and content from its many conquests, and seeks conflict no longer, while the other nations of the Sphere hold an inferior position, but certainly are better off than they were before GEACPS. It would take the strength of a divine wind to knock the Sphere off of its current course- and if it does, it is anybody’s game- from the Zaibatsus to the factions of the Taisei Yokusankai to the military.

But certainly, nothing that drastic would happen to change that, right?

Economic Description : Italy’s economy is experiencing stable growth after it transitioned into a mixed-economy. Mercantilism is being gradually phased out as economic policy as more of Italy’s colonies are being integrated into Italian proper such as Libya, Eritrea, and Upper Egypt.
Worker’s Rights in the Kingdom is well respected, thanks to several socialist and communist revolts in the past, due to the numerous laws granting 8-hour workday shifts, enforcing factory safely, generous unemployment pensions, and excellent minimum wages. A large budget investment in public education and universal healthcare ensures that the Italian workforce stays productive and healthy leading to a steady increase in population growth.

Magic and other shenanigans? : N/A

Military Description The Italian military was made itself worthy call itself the successor of the Roman legions of old. The experience gained from the colonial wars and the Great War transformed Italy into one of the most modern Great Powers of Europe. With access to resources, abundant industrial production, excellent training, competent officers, and good logistics and coordination, Italy was able to fight France, Germany, and even the Soviet Union.
Army: The Italian Royal Army/Regio Esercito, having gone through countless reforms, is organized into six division types: Mechanized Infantry, Armored, Askari, Paracadutisti, Alpini, and Bersaglieri. Division size is usually 16,000 men except for the Armored divisions where it’s organized into 50,000 soldiers and 400 MBTs.

Paracadutisti: created in 1941, they're an élite airborne units (among the best in the world) that fought bravely at Corsica, Balearic Islands, and North Africa. Erwin Rommel, no great admirer of Italian martial skills, hailed them as easily the equal of any German unit, a tribute that speaks volumes. Italy also raised six divisions of paratroops, which saw extensive action throughout WWII.

Bersaglieri/Marksmen — founded in 1836, they're a high-mobility, light infantry Corps with a penchant for sharp-shooting (as the name suggests). They fought at the Battle of the Chernaya River, during the Crimean War, where they earned fame for countercharging the Russian cavalry and routing it; they were also the first corps to enter Rome on September 20, 1870, thus ending the temporal rule of the Pope and completing the Unification of Italy. Being the shock troops of the Regio Esercito (Royal Italian Army), they suffered enormous casualties during WW1. In WW2, they fought in Africa, Germany, and on the Eastern Front with great distinction.

Alpini/Alpine Troops — They're the mountain troops of the Italian Army; having been founded in 1872, they are the oldest and finest active mountain infantry in the world. They fought all over the Alpine arch during WW1 and took part in some of the bloodiest battles of that war. During WW2, the Alpini fought a huge campaign of attrition against the French Mountaineer troops in the Alps before finally breaking through to reach Lyon.

Askari: These are the African and Islamic local soldiers serving in the colonial army of Italy. Often serve as garrisons and internal security divisions, some Askari divisions have earned fame fighting in WW1 and WW2 against the Ottomans, French, and British forces in North and East Africa. Despite receiving 2nd and 3rd rate equipment, the Italian Askari’s prove to be exceptionally loyal and militarily competent thanks to the experienced officer core of the Army. Following the model of the French Foreign Legion, any African or Arab that enlists to be an Askari will gain Italian citizenship once their service is completed or that they have been wounded in combat.

Navy:
The Royal Navy/Regina Marina takes the lion’s share of the Italian military budget. The Pride of the Italian Military fought decisive battles against the French and British fleets in the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean winning most of them. Regina Marina has access to plentiful of torpedo destroyers, AA light cruisers, sturdy heavy cruisers, powerful battleships, and three Pantheon-Class Superheavy Battleships Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto bearing down twelve 18 inch cannons on each ship.

Air Force:
Regia Aeronautica Italiana/Italian Royal Airforce was and still is a prestigious airforce in the international world as it held 33 world records far more than Germany, France, and the Soviet Union. Over 4,000 jet planes serve in the Regia Aeronautica as they provide extensive air support to the Army and Navy thanks to the airbases in Sardinia, Corsica, Malta, Suez, and Somalia. The famous Italian Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 Sparviero medium bomber was exceptionally deadly in providing ground support for Italian troops in WWII, a doctrine that continues decades after the war ended.


National Goals : Restart international trade and maintain the colonial empire.


History : Italy has a relatively good record on warfare since its unification but most of its accomplishments were built on the success pre-unification as Two Sicilies. While Two Sicilies did a good job against the Ottoman-Sicilian War (1848), the Italian Brother’s War against Sardinia-Piedmont (1856), and the Sicilian-Tunisian War (1860), it was during the Scramble for Africa did Italy achieve international recognition. While Britain failed to colonize Ethiopia, Italy defeated the East African nation (1871) in its first war of conquest since unification. The Italian-Egyptian in 1876 cemented Italy’s prowess for war as it swept through Egyptian resistance and set up a protectorate. However, the first stumbling block for the new empire was a nationwide Socialist revolt on the mainland erupting simultaneously with a massive Urabi revolt. While the international community was expecting Italy to collapse in on itself, the Italian army pulled through and crushed the attempted revolution and the Islamic fundamentalist with brutal efficiency. This may have saved the kingdom but now it was apparent that more revolts would happen if reforms aren’t met. Universal male voting was established as well as a free press while Senate worked tirelessly signing bills to elevate workers’ rights and pension.

The 1890s to 1910s was Imperial Italy’s golden era as the kingdom enjoyed prestige and vast wealth from its massive colonial possessions. Even though Italy failed to surpass Germany and Great Britain in terms of size or might, Italians knew for the fact that their country would be no easy task to defeat.

That sentiment proved true in the Great War when France declared war on Italy over the region of Savoie and to retake Corsica. Britain, the world’s superpower took advantage and declared war on Italy in hopes of seizing Malta and the Suez Canal. Germany, sensing an opportunity, invaded France. The Soviet Union was distracted having to fight in the Soviet-Japanese War of 1915 over Sakhalin. After 4 years of brutal trench warfare and desperate naval battles did Italy finally triumph, albeit through heavy cost. Being a defensive war, Italy demanded only reparations given that the humiliation on Britain and France was enough. However, the Great Depression at the end of the war made any victory feel hollow.

The 2nd World War under Prime Minister Benito Mussolini renewed Italy’s status as a Great Power after having triumphed over Germany and the Soviet Union. This also marked the beginning of the Kingdom’s Social Liberal government. Despite the expansion of personal freedoms, welfare, housing, and liberal reforms, Mussonili was still an imperialist that was adamant that Italy retains its colonial empire. While in office, Libya, Tunisia, and Eritrea became the first colonies to be fully integrated into Italy with the process almost complete in Egypt and Somalia.

Mussolini’s protege and lifelong friend, Italo Balbo, succeeded him in 1960 as Italy’s 2nd Social Liberal PM. Like his predecessor, Balbo continued the policy of integrating the colonies and expanding the construction of nuclear plants to increase Italy’s nuclear arsenal.

History : (At least 1 solid paragraph) When Napoleon was exiled to Saint Helena in 1815, after his second failure to take Europe, many thought that would be the end of his page in history. Though with his military BRILLIANCE and INSURMOUNTABLE charisma he managed to sway the British garrison to his side. Also with his INCREDIBLE charisma, he convinced all the British people to become French... yeah. Without invoking the wrath of Britain again, he declared that the Empire of France lived on in Saint Helena and ran it as his own empire again. On a cove in the south of the island, he secretly began the construction of a "fleet to sink the Royal Navy," resulting in the 81 sloops which protect the waters around the Empire of France. Upon transportation to the new timeline, Napoleon salivated at the implosion of the British Empire, and immediately drafted plans for the reconquest of the French nation. Even though he's a tiny nation in the Mediterranean, he is entirely confident in his ability to re-instate the Continental System across Europe!

Napoleon may be losing his mind.
