The Iron Curtain: Cold War RP Reboot


"If we let Korea down, the Soviets will keep right on going and swallow up one after another.”
— US President Harry Truman




Current Date: April, 1950


Discord Link
https://discord.gg/BHevXYR











Once again, conflict arises. The War to end All Wars brought about an era of what was once perceived as perpetual peace, but then we saw the worst war in human history, trumping even the first. The effects of the brutal Second World War can still be felt around the world, five years later. While we were once divided by the struggle between the "Allied" and Axis Powers, we now enter an era of division between communism and capitalism. While major cities still lay in ruins, humanity is on the verge of yet another war; this time, it has the potential to wipe us all out. The Cold War has begun, and with both the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and United States of America possessing nuclear weapons, the third and final war could begin any moment. The year long Berlin Blockade barely prevented a major conflict between the world's super powers, but now that China has fallen to communism, the West fears a domino effect elsewhere. North Korea sets its eyes on uniting the peninsula, setting the stage for the first major confrontation between communism and capitalism.


Rules:
I:No godmodding, meta-gaming or any variant
II:Be realistic
III: Development of nukes will take time. The UK, for example, didn't get one until 1953
IV: Any military movements must be clearly stated here in the OOC, and then explained in the IC (this is to avoid any confusion on invasions, operations etc). In addition, any covert intelligence operations must also be explained in the OOC. If a player is the target of the operations, then consent must be given. If an NPC country is the target, either me, or either of the Co Ops (Dentali or Felan) can respond and grant permission, depending on what's being done.
V: Non Active nations will be assumed to drop out, especially if you're a major one. If you are going to be absent, please let us know so we won't give away your spot
VI: Debates in the OOC need to be kept to a minimum
VII: No inflammatory rhetoric. You will be asked to stop, and then removed from the RP if it continues.
VIII: This will be historical for the most part. The point of divergence is 1945 for major powers
IX: Nations will periodically receive an Event, which is just an incident which needs a response. This will be used when something like a revolution happens, and some things aren't addressed. It's also a way to create content for posts

Population: 182,321,000
Faction: Warsaw Pact/Communism
History: The history of the USSR goes back to the 1917 Russian Revolution and the overthrow of the Tsar. The chaos of World War One led to the Bolsheviks taking control and signing the Treaty of Brest Litovsk. The next five years would see a brutal civil war where the Red Army led by Vladimir Lenin would eventually win the Civil War in 1922. The number of casualties ranged around 7-12 million, and this would only be the beginning. Lenin would soon die, and a power struggle would result in Joseph Stalin gaining power, forming a dictatorship, and a maintaining a cult of personality that continues even now. The next few decades after Stalin's seizure of power included devastating famines in the early 30s and the Great Purge right before the start of World War Two. Although Stalin believed that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Treaty would keep the USSR at peace, the Germans betrayed them in 1941, ushering in four brutal years of fighting from Moscow to Berlin. When the war ended in 1945, the Soviet Union ensured it created buffer states, such as East Germany and the Eastern Bloc. In August 1945, the Red Army invaded Manchuria, and along with the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan surrendered. The Soviet Union would test the West in Berlin with a blockade that would ultimately fail, and the testing of an atomic bomb in 1949, ending the American monopoly on nuclear weapons.

These were from the previous ones. I thought you reserved France, but I only did so because I thought you said you were interested in being it. Same goes for Dentali and the US, and Hypron and the UK. I viewed this more as rebooting the previous RP with the current base of players, so I wanted the original rpers to get their nations they wanted first.

Confederacy of South African Republics:
Head of State/Government: Confederate Council
Type of Government: Confederation of democratic (among whites) republics with universal white suffrage and syndicalist labor unions. Direct democracy is a thing in all local governments, and both the confederacy and republics have an initiative system similiar to Switzerland's, with the exception that the initiatives on the National government level are counted by a republic by republic basis instead of one-man-one-vote.
Capital: None officially. Though, delegates from the Volksraads and South African Confederation of Labor and Trades meet at Pretoria.
Location: South Africa and Southwest Africa. Lesotho should be independent or a protectorate under South Africa and Swaziland should remain as a British protectorate or become a Portuguese protectorate.
Population:Around 14 million people.
Faction: None
History:In 1921-22, the Rand Rebellion happened. However, stubborn Boer republicans aided the syndicalist rebels, leading to the largest Boer revolt since the Maritz Rebellion. Despite the defeat, the uprising cemented an alliance between radical syndicalists and Afrikaner nationalists for a 'White South Africa', and attempts by the Soviets in the 20s to have the South African labor movement adopt the 'black republic' policy failed. The crackdown on the strike made the British more willing to enhance civil rights for Coloreds, Indians, and even Blacks to a small extent in order to have a base to use against an increasingly belligerent white population. Another more muted uprising began during the 2nd World War, as protests and strikes erupted in South Africa over the participation of the country in the 2nd World War. Small cells of Afrikaner nationalist paramilitaries or 'commandos' engaged in guerilla war with the British, though both the strikes and guerilla attacks subsided after the Blitz failed in 1941 and the German invasion of the Soviet Union. In the year 1946, a referendum made on whether South Africa should secede from the British Empire as a Republic. Despite a narrow margin in favor of independence, the pro-British United Party government declared the referendum invalid, despite the protests of the increasingly radicalized Nationalist-Labour Opposition. This led to a general strike of white workers as well as another Boer uprising. The government was then completely taken over, with the old Parliament done away in favor of a confederacy of Volksraads and Unions. A declaration of independence, based on the American one, was signed by delegates from the five new republics. The Commando system was reinstated to defend the republic from both foreign invasions and black uprisings. Immigration is encouraged from Western nations except for Britain, and South Africa is hoping to establish relations with other nations to escape its status as a pariah nation.


Here's my application, a little bit edited from last time. I hope it is fine with your new set-up.

[box]Nation Name: Patagonia
Official Language: Spanish
Religion: Catholic
Currency: Peso
Area: 3,536,500 km^2
Population: 23,293,234
Capital: Santiago
Largest City: Buenos Aires
Highest Point: Aconcagua 6,960 m
Lowest Point: Laguna del Carbón -105 m
Government Type: Federal presidential constitutional republic
President: Juan Peron
Vice President: Gabriel Videla
Faction: Pro US/UK NATO
Location: Chile-Argentina

History:

Due to a major financial crisis within Chile the nations government was in a state of chaos, when the president and the VP along with the Speaker of the House, decided to dissolve the parliament. Argentina took notice and offered to assist the Chileans with their financial issues by purchasing 4/5th of the Chilean ports, and factories. Argentinian companies soon moved in and hired and trained the locals. The Chileans were moved by this gesture and decided to enter into a confederation with the Argentinians. The Chileans and Argentinians now call their nation Patagonia after a shared region, and have made Santiago the political capital while retaining Buenos Aires the Economic and judicial Capital. Juan Peron took the Chilean President Gabriel Videla as his vice president to keep the Chileans happy. In the new constitution, the president and vice president must not be from the same nation to prevent a power imbalance. Argentina, now with more land to use and a better economy with the union, has decided to drop their claims to the Falklands, with a condition that Argentines get visa free travel to the islands for vacation purposes. Chileans support this.

I have a few ideas I'll throw around to you, OP. If any of them sound either really good or really bad, let me know.

-West Germany, with a discreet yet somewhat sizeable portion of the military and government wishing to bring back the Kaiser in the form of Prince Louis Ferdinand. They would have a goal of maneuvering the West into securing the rest of the German lands, whether by diplomacy or by force.

-Finland, with an aggressive nationalist movement sweeping across the nation as they seek to pressure the West into forcing Russia to return land lost a decade prior.

-Ireland, with a stronger movement to reunite all of Ireland from British control.

-Israel, with a mostly historical approach of dealing with both enemies abroad and within.
Known mostly as Finn, but also known as a few other things I can't put in a signature by those who know me.

I think the confederation between Chile and Argentina needs more explanation, but it's an interesting idea. I'd accept this

I think East Germany is also reserved. I don't know the situation for China or either Koreas though.

All of these sound nice. West Germany seems like it could definitely cause more things to happen in the IC, although I feel the West would still have a strong hold on the country. Whatever you choose to do, they all seem really good

I decided to ditch France and go a bit outside of the box.
Country Name: Ethiopia (occupied by the UK)
Head of State/Government: Emperor Haile Selassie I (head of state), Prime Minister Mekonnen Endelkachew (head of government), Alan Francis Brooke (British military governor).
Type of Government: Constitutional Monarchy
Capital: Addis Abada
Map/location (an actual map or description is fine here) The borders of Eithiopia before the italo-Ethiopian war (same as the modern borders of Ethiopia)
Population: 55,466,424 (this is a lot higher than irl in 1950 because of industrialisation)
Faction: Officially non-aligned, but occupied by a NATO member state.
History: Following the unification of Ethiopia into one dynasty in 1894, Ethiopia's emperor, Menalik II, pursues a policy of industrialising the nation to make it to the same standard of modernity to the western powers that tried - and failed - to colonise it during the (first (in rl timeline)) Italo-Ethiopian war. Between the end of the Italo-Ethiopian war and the start of the second world war, overall production in Ethiopia multiplies by over 20, and the length of Ethiopia's railroads multiplies by over 1000. Ethiopia is a member of the Entente Powers during the first world war, despite having minimal involvement, due to their good relationship with the British and French. However, Ethiopia begins to make agreements with their former worst enemies, the Itallians lead by Mussolini, in the 1920s and 1930s following their co-operation during the first world war as Entente Powers and make an infamous secretive pact to divide and conquer British and French colonies in the area, giving Ethiopia sea access. Ethiopia joins the second world war on the side of the Axis on the same day as the Itallians, successfully capturing and dividing British and French Somaliland but reaching a stalemate in the Kenya Colony. However, Britain successfully counterattacks and Ethiopia eventually surrenders in 1944 after a long and brutal campaign, with their Emperor and government exiled in Berlin. Ethiopia is placed under British occupation. After the German surrender, Ethiopia's leaders are captured and the majority are executed for war crimes in 1946, although the Emperor is allowed to stay in a strictly ceremonial position due to his sanctity to Ethiopian culture. As of 1950, Ethiopia is still under British occupation.

Country Name: German Democratic Republic (commonly known as East Germany or the GDR)
Head of State/Government: The joint Chairmen of the Socialist Unity Party of Germany are Wilhelm Pieck and Otto Grotewohl.
Type of Government: Socialist 'Worker's and Peasants' State, Marxist-Leninist.
Capital: East Berlin
Map/location (an actual map or description is fine here) East Germany according to the Potsdam Agreement.
Population: 18,388,000
Faction: Eastern Bloc
History: The German Democratic Republic (GDR) was created out of the Soviet-occupied zone of East Germany. For the extent of Soviet-occupation, East Germany was was under the military control of the USSR, until administration was seceded to the newly formed GDR government. The GDR operated as an independent state, though heavily aligned with the USSR, in 1949 when the two joint Chairmen of the Socialist Unity Party of Germany (Wilhelm Pieck and Otto Grotewohl) assumed control of the parties apparatus. During this time, the leadership of the GDR was becoming significantly concerned with defections to the West through West Berlin and across the border. The question as to how to prevent the brain-drain, as many intellectuals see the regime as too controlling and repressive, from hurting the East German economy.

Country Name: Kingdom of Italy
Head of State: King Umberto II
Head of Government: Prime Minister Alcide De Gasperi
Capital: Rome
Map/location: Italy, Libya, Somalia and Julian March
Population: 49,401,000
Faction: NATO
History: Same as IRL, except Italy is still a monarchy and additionally retains control over both Libya and the Julian March. Ethiopia support Italy and the Axis Powers during WW2, yet Italy switched sides amid civil war and made peace with the Allied Powers. It is now part of NATO and dedicated to oppose communist influence, while retaining influence over Libya and Somalia, both of whom are represented in the Senate.

I'm planning to participate in this RP as French Indochina, can I have your permission to or do I have to wait after the decolonisation effort complete ?

Country Name: United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland
Head of State/Government: King George VI/ Prime Minister Clement Attlee
Type of Government: Constitutional Monarchy
Capital: London, England
Map/location (an actual map or description is fine here) The British Empire except for India (I can't upload a picture to here as the website I used to use stopped working)
Population: 412,000,000
Faction: NATO
History: After the first world wars gripped the Empire, major political and economic problems gripped the nation. This was made even worse by the Great Depression, sending the British economy into free-fall. By 1939, however, Britain was an economic powerhouse once more. This came into play during WW2, when they needed this money to buy equipment from the United States. The British Empire was one of the major powers in WW2, defeating Germany and Japan and bringing balance to Europe. The British Prime Minister, Clement Attlee, was able to restore the production to pre-war levels, although the debt of the Empire was still high.


Ah, who doesn't love being an empire?

Country Name: Ethiopia (occupied by the UK)
Head of State/Government: Emperor Haile Selassie I (head of state), Prime Minister Mekonnen Endelkachew (head of government), Alan Francis Brooke (British military governor).
Type of Government: Constitutional Monarchy
Capital: Addis Abada
Map/location (an actual map or description is fine here) The borders of Eithiopia before the italo-Ethiopian war (same as the modern borders of Ethiopia)
Population: 55,466,424 (this is a lot higher than irl in 1950 because of industrialisation)
Faction: Officially non-aligned, but occupied by a NATO member state.
History: Following the unification of Ethiopia into one dynasty in 1894, Ethiopia's emperor, Menalik II, pursues a policy of industrialising the nation to make it to the same standard of modernity to the western powers that tried - and failed - to colonise it during the (first (in rl timeline)) Italo-Ethiopian war. Between the end of the Italo-Ethiopian war and the start of the second world war, overall production in Ethiopia multiplies by over 20, and the length of Ethiopia's railroads multiplies by over 1000. Ethiopia is a member of the Entente Powers during the first world war, despite having minimal involvement, due to their good relationship with the British and French. However, Ethiopia begins to make agreements with their former worst enemies, the Itallians lead by Mussolini, in the 1920s and 1930s following their co-operation during the first world war as Entente Powers and make an infamous secretive pact to divide and conquer British and French colonies in the area, giving Ethiopia sea access. Ethiopia joins the second world war on the side of the Axis on the same day as the Itallians, successfully capturing and dividing British and French Somaliland but reaching a stalemate in the Kenya Colony. However, Britain successfully counterattacks and Ethiopia eventually surrenders in 1944 after a long and brutal campaign, with their Emperor and government exiled in Berlin. Ethiopia is placed under British occupation. After the German surrender, Ethiopia's leaders are captured and the majority are executed for war crimes in 1946, although the Emperor is allowed to stay in a strictly ceremonial position due to his sanctity to Ethiopian culture. As of 1950, Ethiopia is still under British occupation.

I won't be able to post much IC until Oct 29th.

The question as to how to prevent the brain-drain, as many intellectuals see the regime as too controlling and repressive, from hurting the East German economy.

I believe the map I currently have linked in the OP correctly lists all British holdings at this time, so it's no big deal. This is accepted, and I'll see what needs to be done before the IC is up

Tag. I am tempted to apply as an Ethiopian faction seeking to overthrow the Emperor in favor of a rival to the throne.
