- Greater Germanic Reich


January 12, 1952

The United States of America and the Greater Germanic Reich are engaged in a conflict for the future of mankind. In Berlin, Führer Adolf Hitler rules with an iron fist the European Continent, now integrated into the European Economic Community, an organization that promotes "European Unity" but in reality enforces Germanic dominance over the continent. Only the Kingdom of Italy is powerful enough to stand truly independent from the Reich, but still acts as the inferior partner in the Germano-Italian alliance. West of the Ural Mountains, in the inhospitable lands of Northern Asia, various Warlords lord over what once was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Anarchy, violence, terror and famines are commonplace in these cursed lands. The Republic of China stands as the the new Giant of Asia with the defeat of Imperial Japan. Chinese influence has crept into Southern Asia, challenging European colonialism. The State of Japan, having been defeated in a brutal Pacific War and having suffered the loss of its colonial Empire, is under American supervision. The fate of the the Land of the Rising Sun is yet to be decided. Across the Pacific, America stands as the beacon of freedom and democracy in a dark world. President Harry Truman is unlikely to seek a third term and Presidential hopefuls are preparing for the 1952 President Elections. Challenging the Nazi dominance of Europe has become the most prominent issue of the day as a Brown Scare has overtaken the country and people whisper of a Nazi plots to overthrow the Federal government. Across the Atlantic lies the British Empire. Having had to come to a painful peace treaty with Germany in 1943, the British have to content with the fact that they are no longer the dominant power of the World. India, the Jewel of the Empire, has gained independence. In British colonies in Africa, Marxist and Fascist guerilla groups wage wars for independence. The Free France, led by Charles De Gaulle, maintains a fragile hold over what once was French Africa. In the Middle East and North Africa, the Great Powers (Germany, United States, Britain and Italy) compete for influence as Pan-Arabian Nationalism is becoming more popular. South America has become a fertile ground for communist and fascist ideologues.

The question of the day is: Will National Socialism or Liberal Democracy stand triumphant in the Cold War for the fate of the Globe?

Welcome to The Coldest War (TCW for short). TCW is an alternative history geopolitical/nation RP. In this timeline, while the United States intervened against Imperial Japan and defeated the Japanese as in RL, they did not intervene against Nazi Germany. This, combined with a more effective campaign against the USSR that avoided fateful mistakes, led to a victory of Germany in the Western theater of WWII. Now, in 1952, America and Germany are locked in a Cold War analogous to the real one.

TCW aims to combine player freedom with scripted events and a defined setting. The hope is to strike the right balance between allowing players to define their countries and offering interesting events and situations to ensure that the RP does not become stale or players run out of ideas.

Image


The Point of Divergence (PoD - the date from which things can change in the history of your nation) is 1936. While players have the freedom to define their nations, their histories should not contradict the prologue and the following stated events:

    1. Francisco Franco emerged victorious in the Spanish Civil War.
    2. The Second Sino-Japanese War started on 7 July 1937 and the Second World War started on 1 September 1939, just as in RL.
    3. After the Attack on Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941), the United States and the Empire of Japan are in a state of war. However, Germany did not declare war on the US and America does not intervene in the Western Theater of WWII.
    4. The German invasion of the USSR is widely more successful and by 1942, Moscow is captured. The Soviet government retreats past the Ural Mountains and despite pledges to fight on, it collapses into chaos and warlordism.
    5. In 1943, the United Kingdom and the German Reich sign a peace agreement that recognizes German conquests in Europe. Britain does not suffer any territorial losses, but the loss in prestige is great.
    6. Japan formally surrenders on September 2, 1945. It had suffered two atomic bombs. The Treaty of San Francisco (1951) has ended the legal state of war between Japan and the Allied Powers and it will come into force on 28 April 1952.
    7. On 29 August 1949, Germany conducted its first successful test of an atomic bomb.
    8. The Chinese Civil War ended in 1947, with victory of the Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang). Since then, the Republic of China has become the new big power of Asia with the decline of Britain, the collapse of the USSR and the end of the Japanese Empire.
    9. India was granted independence in 1947.
    10. The French territories in West Africa are still under the control of Free France, led by Charles De Gaulle, but there is growing unrest amongst the colonial subjects of Free France.
    11. British colonies in Africa suffer from low-level insurgencies against colonial rule. Independence leaders have been influenced both by Marxism and Fascism.
    12. In 12 July 1950, the European Economic Community was founded. It aims to create a common European market and to harmonize financial and trade regulations. While so far it acts as a way for Germany to dominate the continent, genuine Europeanists do exist, both within Germany and outside of it.
    13. Harry Truman has served two terms as President of the United States and is the current President. He does not plan on running for a third term though.

As long as those events are not contradicted, players are free to shape their histories.

Some examples: Players can have someone other than Chiang-Kai Sheng leading the Republic of China, but cannot have the CPC win the Chinese Civil War. Players in continental Europe can decide who the leader of their nation is, as long as that leader is right-leaning since Germany dominates the continent.

For players who seek greater liberty in shaping their countries, I recommend Siberia, Latin America, Middle East and South Asia since those regions have the least pre-determined history.

Image


The TCW aims to create a dynamic and living world. At the same time, it realizes that often geopolitical RPs stale due to lack of activity and ideas. As such, Events aim to make the world come true. Every week, the OP (me) will publish an Events Post which shall detail various events: both in player countries and in NPC countries. Some of the events will be the result of actions undertaken by the players themselves. Other events, however, will create new challenges which the players will have to address. Sometimes, failure to address those challenges, will have severe negative effects on a nation.

Image


    1. Each RL month will be four months in-game.
    2. Be realistic in your sign-ups. Applications should respect both the timeline and common-sense. As such, a Napoleonic France or a Babylonian Empire will not be accepted. If you are in the mood for something a bit more crazy, Russian Warlords states are being given more leeway with regards to realism, but even then I expect you to have a serious concept.
    3. This RP gives a lot of leeway to players to pursue domestic and foreign agendas of their liking. However, they must be within reason. You cannot dismantle American democracy, not at least without months of quality posting showing the process. You cannot join as France and start invading North Africa on day one, much less so without German and Italian permission. You cannot join as Japan and declare war on Korea. Be realistic.
    4. This is a geopolitical RP, not a war RP. Invading a country, even assuming you have a legit casus belli, will be a difficult affair and if it lasts longer than expected, it will create backlash at home. This is especially true if you are intervening in a far-way region. Stupid wars (Japan invading Korea on day one or the United States invading Brazil for no reason) will be blocked. However, you can start proxy wars by sending financial and military help to countries (or armed groups) that are in conflict.
    5. No powergaming. This means that your nation will not be perfect. It will have problems and flaws. This will actually make your roleplaying experience more fun since you will have those problems to tackle.
    6. I expect posts to be at least two paragraphs long (with the exception of diplomatic statements - such as condemnations of an action, replying to a diplomatic offer, etch). But generally speaking, with those exceptions aside, I expect you to put at least some effort. Last but not least, I prefer quality over quantity. I much prefer if you make one big, good post once a week than if you post a paragraph long post of bad quality every day.
    7. Be polite, do not be rude and keep disputes outside the IC. Even in the OOC thread, you will have to be polite when discussing disputes. As OP, I reserve the right to tell you to stop an argument if it gets heated; if you want to continue, you can do so through telegrams. I expect the threads to be friendly to players.
    8. Do not glorify Nazism or Fascism. If you RP as a Nazi or Fascist government, I also expect you to hint (at the very least) in your posts about the oppression of those regimes. I am not asking you to RP as a mustache-twirling evil maniac (because that would be stupid), but I do ask you not to whitewash those regimes.
    9. While racist rhetoric is allowed in the context of IC posts, it will not be tolerated in the OOC thread.

Would the U.S. drift leftwards in this TL politically, due to the "Brown Scare" instead of the "Red Scare"? Also, would the CPA/SPA not be driven underground like OTL due to the HUAAC presumably targeting right-wingers instead of communists/socialists?

Indeed, that would be one possibility. I would also expect extreme right-wingers to be treated suspiciously due to the 'Brown Scare'.

Do you want me to reserve you the US? :)

Yeah, I was thinking that King George VI would flee to somewhere like Canada, and they would have totally broken off a Nazi-appeasing UK, and they wouldn't the willpower to hold on to colonies that had already been given their Independence. ie: Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. Canada specifically since I don't think the U.S. would be too favourable to the Nazi-appeasing country on their border. Colonies in Africa and Asia would still be held onto by the UK though, still need to mine those precious resources.

I don't think Jamaica would be given up so easily, since I think it would be seen as a small country that would be easy to maintain, at first at least, and also the British wouldn't be too keen on giving independence to a black-majority colony. But given their proximity to America, and India haven been given independence, I could see the UK being pressured into giving up Jamaica.

I like the concept. It could generate some tension between the UK-led British Empire and a Canada-led Commonwealth or some alliance of sorts, though that would also depend on the Canadian player (if we get one).

National Issues:
Pro-African insurgencies
-Due to Rhodesia's Apartheid system, insurgencies in support of African right have broken out. ZANLU and FRELIMO, operating out of Mozambique, have wreaked havoc in Southern Rhodesia, carrying out multiple terrorist attacks. While they have been unable to cement control over any areas of the country, their cross-border attacks from Mozambique have placed strain on the RSF and BSAP.

Strained British Rule
-Rhodesia is in a very unique situation due to it's strong economy, being one of the few colonies that are nearly completely self-financed. Despite their economic and military independence from Britain, the British Empire still exercises full control over Rhodesian diplomatic, internal, and military affairs, angering many Rhodesians. This has led to a large independence bloc in parliament, led by young firebrand MP Ian Smith.

Dependence on Chromium and Tobacco industries
-Rhodesia's economy, while strong and independent from Britain, is heavily dependent on both Chromium and Tobacco. While the Tobacco industry is relatively stable; Rhodesian cigars, cigarettes, and chew is regarded as high quality and popular from Washington to Germania, the Chromium industry fluctuates often, leading to the Rhodesian government experimenting with using it for domestic production. However, Rhodesia must find another source of income to keep it's economy stable.

Other Military Information:
The RSF is highly trained and experienced, being one of the few colonial armed forces to be funded by the colony itself alone. They place a major focus on light infantry, allowing them to fight effectively in the bush environment of Rhodesia.
History:

The Colony of Southern Rhodesia was officially established in 1923, when it was annexed from the British South Africa Company by Britain. It quickly became one of the richest colonies in Africa due to it's gold reserves, and it's riches attracted immigrants from Britain. By the time the gold reserves had become irrelevant, Southern Rhodesia had already built up a stable economy based on Tobacco and Chromium. The Great Depression hit Rhodesia relatively lightly, and the territory entered a boom in the late 1930s and early 1940s.

When the Nazis began to win World War 2, Europeans fled en masse to Rhodesia due to it's economic prosperity and distance from the Germans. This resulted in a massive boon to the Rhodesian economy, with the White population in Rhodesia doubling twice over. The Rhodesian economy reached 250 Million Rhodesian pounds by 1952, and it continues to grow to this day. The University College of Rhodesia was finished in 1951 due to increased funding, and is the largest University in Southern Africa in 1952.

The Rhodesian Security Forces, meanwhile, served with valor in World War 2, playing large parts in British delaying actions against Germany. Rhodesian pilots earned the most medals out of any participating force, while the Army gained invaluable experience during the war. The RSF serves as the gold standard for African armed forces, and is currently rapidly expanding.

They would originally be aligned with UK, but about a month or so in the Prime Minister is given a vote of no confidence and replaced by Ian Smith 12 years early.

Might have to bring in some troops, maybe ask to the Germans to occupy the region as a show of trust and loyalty.

Other Military Information:

History: Between 1936 - 1939, Spain was placed into Anarchy through the teachings of a civil war, in which came with a Franco victory. Though the country didn't plunge into war, it saw its fair share of conflicts. With the Catalan Uprising in 1940 and the Morocco Insurgency in 1942, Spain's short-term stability between 1939 - 1940 had ended and the failed revolts sparked the makings of the revived independence campaigns for the two regions. The Post-War period, though their was no world war for the country, saw questions asked. As the revived independence campaigns lifted off, Franco's economic policies saw the country plunge into an economic crisis in 1947. The ministers failed to act with liberties and saw food shortages arise through the economic policies overlapping foreign and political instability. With the ripe fruits of the Catalan and Moroccan ready to burst, Franco's team of loyal ministers and generals may look for alternate routes to bring Spain back to a global hegemony in any future.

APPLICATION
NS Name: Sao Nova Europa
RP Name: Greater Germanic Reich
Flag:

Capital: Germania
Territory:

Image


Population: 178,165,494

Official Language(s): German
Ethnic Breakdown:

67% Germanic (119,795,251), 33% Untermensch (58,370,243)
Note: Statistics on ethnicity may be partially unreliable, especially in the Eastern Territories

Religious Breakdown:

59% Protestant
37% Catholic
3.5% Gottgläubig

Note: Only takes into account Germanic citizens

Type of Government: Unitary Nazi one-party fascist state under a totalitarian dictatorship
Head of State: Führer Adolf Hitler

Image

Head of Government: Chancellor Albert Speer

Image

Legislature (the name of your national legislature): Reichstag
Legislative Houses (if your legislature is bicameral): Unicameral Parliament
Party in Power: National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP)
National Issues:

    1. Slave Economy: The German Reich relies heavily on the use of slave labor in the Eastern Territories to keep afloat the German economy. The heavy reliance on slave labor has caused problems though; the Slavic population hates German rule and many Germanic workers - especially ones with only high-school education - find themselves competing against a slave labor. This has led to rising discontent amongst the working class.
    2. Cold War: The Germanic Reich finds itself locked into a global ideological conflict with the United States. As such, it has to spend extensive resources on building up the German military and propping up German allies around the globe while also attempting to undermine American influence.
    3. Internal Rivalries: With Hitler growing older, there is the question of who will succeed him when he eventually retires (or dies). While Albert Speer is the most likely successor, holding the office of Chancellor, others in the Nazi Party, the German military and the SS plot his demise and have others plans for the succession.

Public Goals: European cooperation, defense of Christendom, opposition to liberalism and communism
Private Goals: World domination

GDP (nominal): 510bn (USD)
Currency: Reichsmark
Economic System: State Capitalism
Major Trade Partners: France, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom
Alliance(s): European Economic Community, Italo-German Pact

Military Branches (names of official Armed Forces Branches): Heer, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Waffen-SS

Active Duty: 3,000,000
Reserve Duty: 10,600,000
Total Manpower: 13,600,000

Land Forces:

Germany has 76 Infantry Divisions. Each division has about 25,000 men, 442 machine guns, 135 mortars, 72 antitank guns, and 24 howitzers. Germany has 9 Panzer Divisions. Each one is comprised of about 11,800 men, 328 tanks, 8 support battalions and 6 artillery batteries. In total, the Reich has 2,952 Tanks.

Air Force:

The German Reich has 4,201 operational aircraft: 1,191 bombers, 361 dive bombers, 788 fighters, 431 heavy fighters, and 488 transports. It also has 373,000 personnel. As a result of the German Recession of 1946-8, cuts had to be made which reduced both the operational aircraft and the personnel.

Naval Forces:

The German Navy is comprised of 4 aircraft carriers, 10 battleships, 15 armored ships (Panzerschiffe), 3 battlecruisers, 5 heavy cruisers, 44 light cruisers, 158 destroyers and torpedo boats, 249 submarines, and 300,000 personnel.

Other Military Information:

The Waffen-SS maintains 10 Divisions for a total of 200,000 men. They are the military branch of the Nazi Party.
Germany successfully tested an atomic bomb in 1949 and is slowly but steadily building up a stockpile with hopes of catching up to the US.

History:

In 1943, the Greater Germanic Reich stood supreme. It had managed to drive back the 'Judeo-Bolsheviks' out of Europe, into the wild frontiers of Siberia, and had forced the British Empire to accept a humiliating peace treaty. Hitler stood as the unopposed Master of Europe. At once, he began enacting his great plans for the future of the Reich. Under the supervision of Albert Speer, Berlin was transformed into Germania, the greatest city of Europe. In the Eastern Territories, in preparation for the planned Germanic colonization of the region, the Slavic population suffered deportations east of the Ural Mountains at best or mass extermination in concentration camps at worst.

But things turned sour in the later half of the 1940s. A combination of gross economic mismanagement - which led to the Recession of 1946 - and the immense costs of the Generalplan Ost (Master Plan for the East) undermined Hitler's rule and the popularity of the Nazi Party. Hitler realized a change of direction was needed. Albert Speer, Minister of Industry and Production, was appointed Chancellor. Under his reformist leadership, the program of deportation and extermination of the Slavic populations stopped. Instead, the Slavs were to be used extensively as slave labor to shore up the failing German economy. The plan worked; the sweat, blood and tears of slaves pulled the Reich out of the recession in 1948.

On 29 August 1949, Germany conducted its first successful test of an atomic bomb. In 12 July 1950, the European Economic Community was founded with the goal of creation a common European Market and harmonizing financial and trade regulations. The Reich seemed to have fully recovered and was reigning supreme in Europe, silencing critics. The United States could no longer afford to ignore the Reich. But behind this façade, the Reich has structural weaknesses; an economy kept afloat by slave labor, an increasingly dissatisfied population, a military that seeks to recapture the 'good old days', the SS that believe Speer has betrayed the principles of National Socialism, and a Nazi Party that is deeply divided.
