"Time after time have nations, ay, and rich and strong nations, learned in the arts, been, and passed away to be forgotten, so that no memory of them remains. This is but one of several; for Time eats up the works of man."
- H. Rider Haggard


The Long Peace -- The period of time after the end of World War II, was defined by the nuclear age. The ability to completely obliterate the enemy, and in the process face certain retaliatory obliteration, locked the world into a state of non-confrontational diplomacy between the powers of the world. However, in recent years, this ideal has begun to be challenged by the shifting state of global politics; marking the world by fear in rapid social, political, and technological change. The gravity of power in the world is evidently shifting towards East Asia, as India and China are projected to be the new superpowers of the 21st century, but these powers have yet to find a way to replace the Western order. The nations of the west fervently battle this shift of change in an effort to hold onto power for a while longer. The power struggle ignited by crisis and spread by political goals is felt globally. The world is not the same as it once was, and it will never return to it's current state. The tipping point begins in 2024.

Point of Divergence is January 1, 2018.

Bangladesh Migrant Crisis and the Fall of Modi
The Brahmaputra river is noted for flooding in the Ganges Delta, which comprises much of Bangladesh. Flooding has been an annual occurrence, sometimes the flooding being so extreme as covering a third of the nation. As climate change continued to wreck havoc on the various environments of the world, over 2 million in Bangladesh sought refuge in the neighboring Indian state of West Bengal. Initially, the refugees were welcomed by the Modi administration with open arms, however with the overt promotion of the Hindu nationalist ideology of "Hindutva", and a rising unemployment rate, the acceptance of these refugees became a black stain on Modi within his inner circle. Prime Minister Narendra Modi attempted to justify the acceptance of these refugees in a conference with his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), but his words clashed with his own previous beliefs, the superseding Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), and against the beliefs of many within the inner party. This led to the BJP's "National Democratic Alliance" (NDA) being brutally wiped out in West Bengal, retaining only two seats in the state legislature in the 2019 election. Coupled with Modi's increasingly public refusal to back down for his stance on the refugees, the BJP risked a change of leadership in a desperate chance to preserve its power against the Indian National Congress (INC). Amit Shah, Modi's right hand man, took the mantle as party leader and despite the odds, won the 2019 election with the NDA maintaining control of both houses in Parliament. In March of the following year, the Intelligence Bureau of the India had uncovered a conspiracy in Jammu and Kasmir. It was uncovered that the Pakistani government had been arming the rebel group Hizbul Mujahideen, which supports Pakistani control over the region, even after officially rescinding support in 2018. The group had been responsible for multiple terrorist attacks in the city of Srinigar, the most prominent of which ended the lives of 52 Indian citizens. The outraged Indian government launched a series of border skirmishes across the Pakistani border. Several weeks later, Shah announced their departure from the Shanghai Cooperation Organization on the grounds that it was "An organization which spoke against terrorism, but one which wasn't afraid to use it to their benefit."

2020 Nicaraguan War and the Second Pink Tide
Following the entrance of John Bolton into the White House as National Security Adviser, the US intelligence apparatus went into overdrive in finding ways to undermine Latin American governments unfriendly to American interests in the region. President Donald Trump looked for ways to rally support against a common enemy rather than gaining voters through ideas or policy the same way other war time presidents had. With President Bush's invasion of Iraq in 2003 as inspiration, Trump looked over the options the Central Intelligence Agency and decided Nicaragua would be a perfect choice to flex his presidency's military expansion and raise his poll numbers heading into the presidential election. Among the stated reasons were the Ortega regime's involvement in everything from illegal narcotics trafficking to violently repressing protesters; though the most important reason was the presence of Venezuelan military assets and personnel in Nicaragua, giving them a strategic position. The assertion about the threat posed to the United States and the region by the Venezuelan militarization of Central America was hotly advanced by the Trump administration from the beginning, but other major powers including China, France, Germany, and Russia remained unconvinced that Nicaragua was a threat and refused to allow passage of a UN Security Council resolution to authorize the use of force, arguing instead for continued diplomacy and weapons inspections. Nicaragua permitted OAS weapon inspectors in February 2020, who were continuing their work to assess the Venezuelan military claim when the Trump administration decided to proceed with war without UN or OAS authorization and told the inspectors to leave the country. The United States invaded Nicaragua on May 20, 2020, along additional troops from the United Kingdom. Within about one month, the invasion caused the collapse of both the Ortega government and its armed forces. However, the U.S. and U.K. forces failed to find any Venezuelan military personnel in Nicaragua. Nevertheless, on July 1st, President Trump gave a speech announcing, among other things, the exit of almost all Anglo-American troops in Nicaragua. Trump's approval rating in July was at 58%, though it didn't last long. While the war itself was popular among Republicans, it alienated most the country and further polarized the national discourse in an election year. The European Union vocally criticized the invasion and not a single European country other than the United Kingdom participated in the invasion. The OAS was rattled by such blatant disregard for national sovereignty but the ensuing refugee crisis near shattered it as the US left behind no caretaker government. The OAS exists now only on paper as most member countries became suspended in protest. More than one million Nicaraguans were displaced permanently from their country and now reside in neighboring countries, as a low-intensity asymmetric war began between the national government controlling only Managua and surrounding areas, Neo-Sandinistas, and nationalist, right wing National Dignity Battalions. Since the American invasion, a second Pink Tide has been sweeping the region that has been described by experts as far more widespread thanks to more politically moderate and pragmatic stances while having a more vitriolic, anti-American rhetoric. With the rest of Central America and most South American nations except for Brazil and Panama all electing left wing governments vocally opposed to U.S. intervention in Latin America. With upcoming elections this year in Panama and Uruguay will be a litmus test for the strength of this tide. The two nations are diametrically opposites, with Panama the home of the Panama Canal and USSOUTHCOM while Uruguay a bastion of the region's left wing, a left wing victory in Panama would be a breakthrough catalyst for the pink tide while a right wing victory in Uruguay would be a killing blow to its momentum.

2020 American Election and the Virumaa Crisis
The 2020 United States election was one of the most volatile in recent history. The large disparity between Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders. The election put many, especially those with foreign ties to the United States on edge. Sanders won the election by a single vote in the electoral college, and was sworn in on January 20th, 2021. During his first year in office, he enacted sweeping changes to the tax code and, while not delivering on all of his promises, managed to reinstate DACA and limited the size of ICE. Though on May 1st, 2022 Bernie Sanders suffered a heart attack and died in the White House's medical facility. Vice President Dean Hampton, a largely unknown figure in American politics, was thrust into the Presidential office. Hampton was by-and-large highly anti-interventionist, making numerous remarks in the past against NAFTA and especially NATO, referring to it as an "obsolete Cold War-era relic." The worries of the United States' allies in Europe culminated in what would be known as the "Virumaa Crisis." The Russian Federation, in response to the election of the anti-interventionist Dean Hampton, had begun to take multiple aggressive steps in securing their sphere of influence. On October 8th, 2022, Russian soldiers had begun to build up on their common border with Estonia. On October the 10th, Vladimir Putin made a statement which, among other things, demonstrated Russian desire for the seizure of Ida-Virumaa from Estonia on the grounds of a 73% Russian majority in the region, with similar comments being placed on Latgale in Latvia over mistreatment to their ethnic Russian populace. Within the first day, most members of NATO had issued a response to these claims, with all save for Albania, Norway, and Turkey actively stating backing for the Baltic states. Calling the bluff of the western nations, subversive acts began to undermine Estonian and Latvian control over the region. Over the course of the week of October 17th, Russian-backed protests began to be held around both regions for a referendum, many of which devolved into violent clashes between protesters and police. On the 22nd, a clash between Estonian police and rioters devolved, causing the deaths of six and the injuries of twelve. The Kremlin was outraged and, on the following morning at 5:00, Russian soldiers surged into the region and advanced to the border zone at Mustvee by 8:00 facing minimal resistance from a rapidly retreating Estonia. In Latgale, the Russian offensive of 25,000 men was stalled for a Latvian contingent of 102 soldiers at Rēzekne, which against all odds held the vital city for two hours. By noon, the entire region had been placed under Russian occupation and advancement on all fronts had ceased. The day dragged on as Europeans woke to see that a World War was looming over Europe, the various government of NATO nations scrambled to plan a defense for a second Russian offensive. NATO Secretary General Mark Rutte responded to the invasion by issuing a statement that the sovereignty of Estonia and Latvia would be maintained; a statement which was upheld by a decreasing number of NATO members, most notably France, who had begun to deploy soldiers to the Baltics without officially declaring an open conflict. Though as the first semblance of foreign military assistance began to trickle into Estonia, however, the crippling silence of the United States had broken. President Hampton, with the weight of the renewed non-interventionist vigor on his solders, addressed his nation early in the morning stating that the United States would "pursue all options to remain out of direct conflict with the Russian Federation." The infamous "Virumaa Address" was the final nail in the coffin for NATO. Without American support, NATO defensive strategy fell apart; this forced the European nations to call off a counter-attack and essentially put an end to the Virumaa Crisis. The President of the European Commission, Jan-Bart Arents, made a statement in response to the United States' failure to uphold NATO obligations, claiming, "This would be the day that the United States resigned as the leader of the free world." Several weeks later, on November the 14th, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was officially disbanded. Directly following this, the Europeans began talks to replace the gap that NATO left. In December of 2022, the Common European Security and Defense Organization Treaty was signed in Brussels.

The Scottish Referendum and the Glasgow March
The United Kingdom officially left the European Union in March of 2019, being forced into a no-deal agreement by indecisiveness in the government. This left the United Kingdom in a peculiar spot, with rapidly declining In late 2022, in the United Kingdom, the Scottish National Party demanded a referendum on independence, in part due to the fact that Scotland largely voted to remain in the European Union. The referendum was agreed to, but the British government continuously held off on releasing a date. After three years of gridlock on the topic, the SNP scheduled a referendum in 2022. The referendum succeeded by a margin of over 65%. The British government immediately recognized this referendum as illegitimate, sparking protests and other acts of defiance in the name of an independent Scotland. On March 8th, 2023, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets in Glasgow to demand British recognition of the referendum, inspiring similar campaigns from cities all across Scotland.

The End of the Arab Spring
Wars in the Middle East continued to rage on well into the 2020s. In 2019, the Islamic State was finally forced to surrender to advancing forces from all sides. Later that year, after the removal of American presence in the region by President Trump, the Turkish military invaded Syria with the intent of suppressing Kurdish nationalist sentiment. A widely repudiated referendum sanctioned the Turkish occupation as necessary for preservation of peace in the region. A weakened Iraq lead the "Zab Offensive" into Kurdish territories, but the exhausted Iraqi Military made little progress. While Iraq refused to recognize the Kurdish state, they maintain no control over the area. At the beginning of 2022, The Russian Federation increased the flow of supplies into Syria. Against the fractured forces of the Free Syrian Army and the various minor terrorist organizations which dotted the nation, Assad and his armies won most of Syria back after a brutal 11 year Civil War, with no appetite for a war against Turkey to reclaim its northern, occupied territories. After decades of unrest and years of conflict, the many sides of the Libyan Civil war have agreed to come to the negotiation table. They hold negotiations in The Hague, Netherlands, with the oversight of UN officials, and they draft a treaty known as the Declaration of Tripoli. The treaty states the separation of Libya into two seperate entities; Cyrenaica, headed by General Jaasim Al-Mahdavi, under a military controlled government; and Tripolitania under a presidential democracy, headed the the notable authoritarian, Raashid Al-Rahimi. After years of heavy fighting bogged down in the region, the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen began to buckle as the military aid and logistical and combat support from the United States began to slow down under the Sanders administration. When Dean Hampton took over as U.S. president in 2022, Congress suspended US arms sales and other support for Saudi Arabia and its coalition. On 13 December 2022, Houthi forces attacked Marib, which fell on 6 January 2023, paving the way for an offensive to take the N5 highway that allowed the Saudi coalition to supply the Hadi-government. Saudi Arabia desperately pleaded President Hampton for funds to assist and re-supply the Hadi-led Government before it was overrun but both the President and Congress refused. Capitalizing on the fall of Marib, the Southern Transitional Council launched offensive against the Hadi-government controlled port of Al Bukalla. The loss of the N5 supply corridor and their largest port left the Hadi-government in a state of limbo. Hadi forces on the frontlines with the Houthis mutinied as their payrolls and supply lines dried up, and on March 20th, 2023 Oman hosted a peace conference between Houthis and Southern Transitional Council, resulting in the creation of two independent North and South Yemen states, marking an end to the Yemeni Civil War. Meanwhile, the region is the worst humanitarian crisis in history. Twenty-two million Yemenis remain in need of assistance, eight million are at risk of famine, and a cholera outbreak has affected over one million people.

Cameroon Civil War and the Young Africa Movement
In the African nation of Cameroon, the long standing dictator of Paul Biya died at the age of 89 in February, 2022. The death was unexpected, and doctors account it to a series of unsuspected strokes while he was out of the country in France. The almost oligarch-like government of Cameroon scrambled to stabilise the nation, and put forth the Vice-President, Philémon Yang, to be sworn in at the nearest opportunity. This started what was later known as the March Undoing, in which Cameroon fell into complete disarray. It turned out that President Yang was completely incompetent to hold the country together, and as a response to lowering economic output, he started to print more money without the permission of the other nation that share Cameroon’s currency of the Central African Franc. This led to a political crisis in Central Africa, which eventually led the the prohibition of Cameroon from using the CAF legally. This destroyed the Cameroonian economy in a matter of days, and only worsened the extreme political unrest. By the time the March Undoing had concluded, three definitive sides had formed. In the heavily Muslim north of Cameroon, a political movement for secession headed by Albert Riqueti, had gained significant concrete support. The movement was known as the Coalition de Libération Isamique does Puel, or CLIP for short. It was founded around the ideal of a Fulani nation, which was a minority group across West and Central Africa, Cameroon included, around an Islamic Democracy. Within months they became strong and organised, and held a lot of control in the North, while also possessing a well trained militia force, but they were not yet activity in conflict. That only occurred after a second movement, known as the Egalité pour le Mouvement Camerounais, or EMC, which was a democratic movement, started actively fighting against the government forces in the South. In this moment CLIP stated actively fighting and seizing control in Northern Cameroon, which only complicated the conflict. CLIP is yet to hold any fundamentalist or radical ideals, but their are worries that this may change by the late parts of 2024. With Cameroon only falling into further disarray, the world has started to take note, and intervention seems likely. This war against the old guard was just the spark to tensions brewing in Africa for decades, a new struggle on the continent. It had begun to gain traction in late 2023, dubbed the "Young Africa Movement" by Western media outlets, it seeks to end the uncontested reign of the old guard throughout Africa.

The Kashgar Decampment and the ELTO Insurgency
Ever since it first began its outwards expansion, China has had issues assimilating the minorities on its frontiers. The Muslim Uyghurs of Xinjiang proved particularly stubborn, and in response to calls for autonomy, China used the terrorist East Turkestan Liberation Organization as a pretense to begin locking millions of Muslims, not just Uyghurs, up in Xinjiang. Internal opposition in the region remained under control until 2021, when a series of terror attacks by the ETLO targeting the prisons occurred. The most infamous among them being the attack on a camp outside of Kashgar, which alone caused the escape of 300 Muslims. Over the past three years, thousands of prisoners have escaped, and though most were rounded back up, it was a disaster for China’s image abroad, especially in Central Asia. Kazakhstan, angered by China locking up ethnic Kazakhs, ceased to recognize ETLO as a terror group and condemned China’s policies towards its muslim minority. This has threatened Chinese influence in the region, and many Central Asian states are now looking to Russia to back them against China.

INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL - The International Council controls everything out of the control of your government, for most intense and purposes. The outcomes of elections, the opinions of your populace, when terror attacks happen, how war progresses, random events around the world, etc. Unless you have fair reason to civilly dispute an outcome, the International Council is the final say on game progression and events. Think a Dungeon Master from DnD, I suppose.

DIPLOMACY - Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Meeting with a leader from one country can lower the opinion of your nation in another. If you're casting agreements left and right with the Chinese government, the Indians won't be too pleased. Diplomacy is the heart of this roleplay, not warfare. Warfare exists, but most of the roleplay should be occupied by involving yourself with other nations in agreements, civil wars, etc. Using your information about the global situation and your wit and using it to turn the situation to your advantage is imperative, rather than going in "guns blazing." The International Council must be made aware of any shady business you’re doing. If the IE is not aware, you will face harsh consequences, such as getting the event automatically exposed to the public. Any actions, diplomatic or otherwise, have to be in a post or in a meeting overseen by a member of the IEC, or it will be ignored completely. It is important to note that a military pact may not always guarantee you allies in the event of war. Failure to maintain your loyalties towards a military pact can result in serious loss of face in the international stage. Military alliances must be agreed upon by all states, a country can not be forced into an alliance without you invading them first.

WARFARE - National Unity plays a role in warfare by supporting a war effort in resource scarce situations and supporting supply lines when relevant, increasing troop effectiveness and range. National Unity can be promoted pre-war by riling up your populace before casting a declaration of war, it is beneficial because it bolsters wartime national unity and causes your population to support the war. If your population doesn't support an offensive war, then you will be hampered. War should be declared before any invasions can begin. Any invasion of a country without a declaration of war will tarnish your international image and increase your infamy. During the war, use of natural geography and logistics should be used. Work to keep your front at an ideal size while not overextending yourself: An invasion into Siberia, the Himalayas, or the Amazon is a guaranteed way to overextend your supply chains. Military operations should be noted in detail or assumptions will be made and military progress will be hampered. How much detail you want to go into is up to you, but the more detailed the better. Your troops will not do exactly what you say 100% of the time. There will be miscommunications, there will be deserters, and there will be incompetency. While this will doubtfully cripple your war effort, it should be something to keep in the back of your mind. The likelihood of this occurring does somewhat rely on your national unity and nations involved in the conflict. After wars, a truce may be signed saying the 2+ countries will not go to war again for a set period of time, breaking this truce heightens national infamy.

ESPIONAGE - Espionage is a system which details things like spies or hacking into another nation. This is a tool of "violent diplomacy," but it can also benefit you in a war. War plans are subject to espionage, corrupt politicians, and hacking and may give a glimpse into the military movements of the power being spied on, allowing the spying nation to more effectively repel and counterattack. Military technology can also be learned about, allowing you to know more about the capabilities of the enemy, allowing you to plan more efficiently. This does not mean that you can replicate the technology. When it comes to diplomatic espionage, politicians can be corrupted, and election results and campaigns meddled with, affecting the democratic processes of a nation. The more naturally corrupt the state, the better corruption works but if the state is more transparent, hacking is generally better. If your spy is caught, the nation which caught them will lose opinion of your nation. Depending on the situation, it could even speed up the process for war justification.

TECHNOLOGY - Technology is an essential part of espionage, warfare, standards of living, etc. Countries that pour more money into technology development, or nations which subsidize tech development companies, will grow their technology much quicker. Nations can also enter into joint research agreements, speeding up the process of development, or outsourcing it to other areas with more efficient development. New military tech takes time to implement into your armed forces, depending on the scale of the upgrade. Less technologically advanced nations gradually glean technology off of more advanced allies. Basic statistics for new technology should be put in, but if you're novice you could always work towards real-life technology or discuss it with Welfresio or Nations United for Conquest, both of which are sort of "military experts" for the Cobalt Network.

ECONOMICS - Every nation has a unique approach regarding their economic development, especially in regards to rising powers and semi-planned economies. Jumping from different economic stances can hamper growth if not done gradually. Radical interventionist or Laissez Faire economic policies will in most situations lead to an economic downturn. Failure to implement economic policies or policies which end up having negative effects on the nation will result in low national unity and the rise of reactionary elements within your nation. Most countries with resource-dependent economies are unstable in nature and are highly likely to suffer from the negative effects discussed in the next two sections. Diversifying into different sectors can help escape this, however it can anger the corporate/political elites of your nation.

INTERNAL POLITICS - Elections, for both the executives and legislature, are decided by the International Council in democratic nations. Same thing for referendums, recall votes, etc. One party countries or dominant party countries are more likely to undergo violent political shakeup and even coups if national unity reaches low levels. Military coups are possibility when the government is completely split, and a chunk of the military sides with rebellious forces. Large-scale political unrest can occur if either your leader has maintained a grip on high amounts of power, major policies that contradicts with your nation's religious and cultural values, and if resources necessary for the economy and every day survival are horribly distributed and maintained. Policies which advocate for huge connection to the globalizing economy will make your country more open for foreign communications and liberalism in your nation will become larger with reactionary politics rising as a legitimate alternative over the course of years. Authoritarian nations require a satisfied aristocracy, if not achieved, a coup or civil war is likely.

The Stagnating Superpower
Image

President Lynne Cheney | Next election November 2028
Since World War II, the 20th century seemed to be destined for American dominance. The war not only brought the United States from the Great Depression, but catapulted it to superpower status along with the Soviet Union. While competition between the two lasted decades, the Iron Curtain eventually fell, and with it the United States ascended to a state of unilateral control. As decades continued, however, it became more apparent that the 21st century would not present the same level of prosperity for the United States. The American populace, war-weary after decades of American intervention in the Middle East and the disastrous consequences of the Nicaraguan War in 2020, had begun to take a more defensive approach as anti-interventionism surged in popularity. At the turn of the millennium, the United States maintained the largest sphere of influence through NATO and through its allies in the Asia-Pacific region. In 2022, the United States lost the former at the conclusion of the Virumaa Crisis, which the anti-interventionist President Hampton stated his refusal to intervene with Russian ambitions in Estonia. With careful decision making and global diplomatic strategy, the United States could grasp a large sphere of influence once again, and resurge as the undisputed superpower of the world.

President Xi Jinping | Next election February 2028
China is, for all purposes, the factory of the world. The emerged from World War II a crippled nation, hardly able to stand before knocked into a brutal Civil War. At its conclusion, the Communists reigned as the rulers of mainland China. As decades continued to develop, Chinese industry had begun to snowball. Due to cheap labor costs and developed infrastructure, many corporations began to move operations to the People's Republic. This effect catapulted China into a position as the world's manufacturing hub, bolstering one of the largest economies on the planet. The authoritarian Chinese government has allowed them to develop themselves at brutal efficiency. While China has become one of the major players on the world stage in only a few decades, they face a plethora of issues which could challenge the stability of the government. Separatist movements in Tibet and Xinjang, Overpopulation and a water shortage, and the existence of Taiwan as a democratic rival to the state are each great hurtles for the Communist regime. If passing these challenges unscathed and participating in strategic power projection while the American hegemon is turned, however, the 21st century is almost certainly the Chinese century.

President Dmitry Medvedev | Next election March 2030
The Russian Federation has been on the decline since the mid-Soviet era. Plagued by internal strife, revolution, and a large cast of foreign enemies caused the collapse of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia was left with 25% less land area, half the population, and longer borders. At the fall of the Soviet Union, Moscow was 1,500 kilometers from NATO. Within three decades the Russian capital of Moscow was within breathing distance. This lead the Russian Federation down a path to secure what little influence it had left, by securing areas with Russian minorities such as in Crimea. An attempt on Ida-Virumaa and Latgale lead to the collapse of NATO, giving the Federation room to breathe. With very few close allies to speak of, and most of its former Western lands being under European influence, Russia still remains in a precarious situation, especially with its allies conflict with the Chinese Xinjang policy. However, for the first time in decades, the Russian Federation has a chance at expanding its sphere of influence.

The Linchpin of the European Union

Chancellor Martin Schöpfer | Next election October 2025
The Federal Republic of Germany has been one of the most powerful nations in Europe throughout the last few centuries, and the last decades have been no exception. Although German decline has been seen since the end of World War II, they have become a powerful force in global politics yet again. Germany is the linchpin in the European Union, which has united the economies of Europe together: a project which began to make warfare impractical between European states. For much of late history, Germany has relied on the United States for defense, but this has wavered in recent years. With their allies in Europe, they have become a formidable force against the ambitions of the Russian Federation. Alone, Germany doesn't stand a chance against the growing powers of the world. Hand-in-hand with the European Union, however, they just might stand a chance.

President Amit Shah | Next election July 2027
The history of modern India can be categorized as a history of suffering. The Indian subcontinent entered the modern era under the complete control of the British colonial empire, who ruled under the mandate of "divide and rule". This would ultimately manifest into the Partition, leading to a bloody rivalry with the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, which would dominate the foreign policy and military doctrine of India, as well as an ongoing crisis of intercommunal violence among the Hindus and Muslims. As the 20th century progressed, India demonstrated itself a capable regional power, however it was severely lagging against the rapidly industrializing China to the north, and was unable to stand on the same playing field as the West. Now as India enters the year 2024 with hopes of social and economic growth, it must make the right decision in order to be able to assert itself in Asia and the rest of the world, or the nation risks repeating history by becoming submissive to the wills of foreign powers.

Kingdom of Crisis
Image

Prime Minister Boris Johnson | Next election May 2029
For decades, the United Kingdom had been part of the European Union, a supernational organization containing much of the European continent. In 2016, the United Kingdom voted to exit the union, which was finally executed in 2019. The vote was highly controversal, and several days after the final exit, the Scottish National Party demanded a referendum on independence, due to the fact that Scotland largely voted to remain in the union. The referendum was agreed to, but the British government continuously held off on releasing a date. After three years of gridlock on the topic, the SNP scheduled a referendum in 2022. The referendum succeeded by a margin of over 61%. The British government immediately recognized this referendum as illegitimate, sparking protests and other acts of defiance in the name of an independent Scotland. While it's been nearly two years since the date of the false referendum, Scottish independence runs as strong as ever, a sentiment which may end the 400 year history of the United Kingdom.

President Emmanuel Macron | Next election May 2027
The France, in all its forms, has been at the center of European politics since the fall of Rome. Similarly, for much of its history it has been at odds with its neighbor to the east: Germany. Over the past few decades, the relationship between Germany and France has been mended by means of the European Union, which has ensured cooperation throughout the continent. The French have been champions of the Union, being one of the original creators of the project as well as proposing the CESDOT after the collapse of NATO. Outside of Europe, France has been an active player on the African continent; being the largest outside influence on the continent alongside China. The French Republic stands no chance against the superpowers of the world alone, but with its allies it just might be able to hold back the encroaching forces of foreign powers, and to catapult itself into a formidable power yet again.

......................................................................STATE OF JAPAN


Land of the Rising Sun
Image

Prime Minister Shinzō Abe | Next election October 2025
In centuries prior, Japan has been a nation to behold. From a backward Asian nation, Japan rose to a level comparable to the European Empires of old, and engaged in radical expansionist policies during the middle of the 20th Century. In modern times, Japan no longer holds that reputation. Japan is a nation solely focused on the its own defense, rather than imperialist policy, and its military parallels this. However, the State of Japan still remains one of the most powerful nations in Asia. With extremely advanced information technology and automobile industries, Japan is one of the largest leaders of technological advancement on the planet securing them amongst the world powers. However, the Japanese economy has been on the edge of collapse in recent years, with the highest debt-to-GDP ratio seen among any of the nations, and with a shrinking workforce, halting its rise will only become more difficult. If Japan can secure their debt and population crisis, it will be sure to be a formidable Asian power. However, if its debt gets to unsustainable levels, the Japanese will become a pawn of the nations around it yet again.

......................................................................ARAB REPUBLIC OF EGYPT


Lion of Africa
Image

Prime Minister Essam Khalil | Next election March 2026
The history of Egypt is a rich one, evident by their position as the oldest currently existing civilization. A decade ago, the Egyptian government faced a revolution as part of the Arab Spring, which deposed multiple leaders in order to establish a democratic state. In 2014, once their nation had stabilized, they undertook multiple economic growth projects which were met with moderate success. While Egypt has not seen the same level of economic growth as their neighbors in Africa, they are unequivocally one of the most powerful nations on the continent, especially from a military standpoint. Despite their success, their position as an African power has not gone uncontested. In 2019, the Ethiopians completed the Renaissance Dam on the Nile River, which served to weaken Egyptian agricultural yields by up to 20%. This project was not one of a kind, however, as this sparked the beginning of large-scale economic development along the Blue Nile, which serves to threaten the power of the Egyptian state. Missives to halt production have gone unrecognized by Ethiopia, which contributed to the increasing internal division in the African Union. If Egypt cannot secure their access to the waters of the Nile, the Republic will no doubt become submissive to their neighbors in Addis Ababa.

The Shia Revolution

Iranian Inner Circle | No executive elections
For decades, the Iranian government has been alone in the world. The largely Islamist, Shia government has been at odds with the Sunni world around them since the rise of the Islamic Republic. Ruhollah Khomeini, the first Ayatollah, worked to export the Shia revolution to other areas of Shia majority in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Afghanistan; a job which has only continued under his successor, Ali Hosseini Khamenei. This revolution has put them into direct competition with Saudi Arabia on the global sphere and the oil market, both nations using the smaller countries around them as pawns against eachother, a conflict which has been nicknamed the "Middle Eastern Cold War." Iranian oil exports have been constantly crushed by the United Nations, which levies sanctions against the gulf nation at any opportunity by effort of the United States. Iran faces a risky future, with a hostile Saudi Arabia and even more hostile transoceanic powers. However, if it is able to sew cracks in the Saudi Regime, it just may be able to secure it's position as the King of the Gulf.

The Recovering Contender
Image

President Manuel Barbosa | Next election October 2026
In the late 1800s, Brazil seemed like an obvious candidate for future superpower status. Large land area, a plethora of resources, and expansion opportunities made it apparent that Brazil would be a force to be reckoned with. This was not the future destined for the nation, however, as the potentially bright future Brazil faced was squandered by a lack of industrialization. In recent years, Brazil has an adequately industrial economy, but its status has been offset by other factors. A corrupt government and overspending in inadequate social programs all contributed to a large-scale economic decline seen in after 2011, resulting in a decline of 40% of the Brazilian economy. This has caused large resentment towards the government, with many government figures having deplorable approval ratings. While the Brazilian economy hasn't declined much since 2019, it has gone without much growth for half a decade. If Brazil can navigate and grow it's economy and appease the restless, it may have a chance to grasp superpower status, as predicted long ago.

President Carlos Slim Domit | Next election July 2030
For much of recent history, Mexico has been a nation struggling to survive. The War on Drugs declared by American President Richard Nixon was not only a large blow to the stability to the struggling Mexico, but to nearly all of Latin America. The metaphorical war drove the drug trade underground through Latin America, drastically increasing government corruption, crime rates, and the power of the cartels. In the 90s, Mexico opened its economy to NAFTA, allowing them to use the United States to secure their economy. With the beginnings for a new pink tide, characterized by leftism and anti-American sentiment, surging through Latin America, however, their close relationship to their northern neighbor is brought into question. The Mexican government has a future of strife and conflict ahead of them, constantly battling corruption and the drug trade in order to make Mexico the leader of Latin America.

President Emmanuel Ugirashebuja | Next election June 2028
Even before their independence, Britain’s East African colonies had flirted with unification. Their common history and culture, along with pre-existing economic ties, made the region a good candidate for future federalism. However, Cold War drama made federation impractical, and the nations went their own ways after independence. Despite this, the 2000s saw Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi form the East African Community with the goal of political and economic integration, and a common currency had been adopted by 2020. Though South Sudan joined the EAC, they were firmly rejected from joining the federation, and were left out ot further integration plans. This union had numerous difficulties, but by 2023, a constitution was finished, and by New Year, the nation is to be formally unified. Their first election is set for June, and with the dying Old Guard losing support, it will change the region’s once stagnant politics forever.

King Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud | No executive elections
Saudi Arabia and Iran are often considered the two opposites of the Middle East. As Iran exports the Shia revolution to parts of the Middle East, Saudi Arabia works to maintain the status quo and promote fundamentalist Sunni. While the Iranians are vastly superior population wise, the Sauds have some of the highest sovereign wealths of any nation, and for good reason: the black gold lying under their feet. Oil put them in good graces with the west, and they have used that to their advantage. Whenever the Iran steps up to start a revolution, the Sauds respond with American weaponry to put down the revolution. Saudi Arabia manipulates the world around them for their own gain, turning the Middle East into a chess match. If the Saudis can successfully spread Fundamentalism throughout the Middle East and put an end to the Ayatollah's revolution, they can finally assert themselves as the King of the Gulf.

President Bashar al-Assad | No executive elections
The 11-year Syrian Civil War devastated the nation. Hundreds of thousands were killed, millions were displaced. The Syrian Government won a country of rubble, and now they had to rebuild it. However, Syria has many enemies, which meant that it must to capitalize on the friendships it does have. Relations with Iran, already high due to cooperation during the Civil War, were finally formalized with the forming of the Axis of Resistance to counter the influence of Saudi Arabia, who had funded radical Sunni insurgents against the Syrian government. The Turks occupy parts of Northern Syria in order to suppress the Kurdish populace and to project power over the crippled government. Israel, as always, remains a large specter on the horizon. Syria has slowly crawled out of the Civil War, bloodied from the destruction of their nation. Despite the end of the war, the government remains unpopular. The nation has a dismal future ahead if it cannot secure itself, but if it can it will remain a vital asset to foreign powers, it may crawl into stability once again.

......................................................................REPUBLIC OF TURKEY



The Ottoman Legacy
Image

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan | Next election June 2028
For centuries, the Turkish government remained at the forefront of European politics, being able to project power from Crimea to Algers. The past century has been unkind to the state, however, which saw the collapse of the last vestiges of their once mighty Empire. Ataturk created a modern, secular Turkish state which has remained in relative peace for decades, quietly relegated to its place as a close ally to the United States. In recent years, Turkey's position as a quiet spectator on the world stage has shifted when the Arab Spring shattered the Middle East. Since then, Turkish militant groups have been active throughout the region, working to counter Kurdish insurgents and to project their power over their destroyed southern neighbor. These culminated in the invasion and subsequent occupation of the northern border regions of Syria to suppress Kurdish nationalism, which has stretched relations to the breaking point with Syria. In 2023, Erdoğan exploited a loophole in the Turkish constitution to run for a third term, which some have speculated is the end of Ataturk's Legacy. Whichever way Turkey goes, one thing is certain: a third contender has entered the Middle Eastern Cold War.

......................................................................BOLIVARIAN REPUBLIC OF VENEZUELA



In the Shadow of Chavez
Image

President Nicholas Maduro | Next election December 2030
Hugo Chavez's, president until 2013, economic policies expanded the state's role in the economy through expropriations of major enterprises, strict currency exchange and price controls that discouraged private sector investment and production, and overdependence on the petroleum industry for revenues, among others. His hand-picked successor, Nicolas Maduro, has exercised increasingly authoritarian control over other branches of government. Venezuela is currently authoritarian with only one democratic institution - the National Assembly - and strong restrictions on freedoms of expression and the press. However, he has relaxed economic controls to mitigate some impacts of the economic crisis driven by a drop in oil production. The most recent re-election of current disputed President Nicolas Maduro in an election boycotted by all opposition parties was widely viewed as fraudulent and more than 50 countries, including the United States, refuse to recognize Nicolas Maduro as head of state of Venezuela. Pervasive human rights abuses, rampant violent crime, high inflation, and widespread shortages of basic consumer goods, medicine, and medical supplies have left the Bolivarian Republic in the shadow of Chavez.

For decades, Cameroon has been lead by Paul Biya, who has lead the nation since its independence from France in 1960. In late 2022, his death lead Cameroon down the path of ineptitude, currency devaluation, and eventually collapse. Less than two months after the appointment of Biya's successor, the State of Cameroon had fallen apart. In the north, the Coalition de Libération Isamique which wishes to form an Islamic Democracy around Fulani ideals. The Egalité pour le Mouvement Camerounais, a democratic front in the south largely lead by a new group of politicians. The Young Africa Movement was formulated by the leader of the EMC, Aristide Omgbwa, as a struggle against the old guard across Africa. An idea which has taken hold throughout much of the continent. The Cameroonian nation is shattered, bleeding, and dying; and though it is a small nation, its fate may affect the future of the continent.

......................................................................REPUBLIC OF INDONESIA

President Joko Widodo | Next election April 2024
At the dawn of 2024, Indonesia is possibly the epitome of what this new decade means for the world, a paradox of soaring economic prosperity, and chaos domestically. The last few years have seen massive foreign investment, and an economy that has been growing at close to double digits year upon year. Thewir role in the Asia-pacific region is only becoming more significant as time passes. But this economic prosperity, this rise in modernisation, has resulted in a traditionalist, islamist backlash, with the Aceh Restoration Militia (ARM) further pushing Sumatra into chaos, whilst on the other side of the nation, the West Papua movement continues to grow despite harsh Indonesian suppression. The path forward is shrouded, and Indonesia must wait and see what their future has to hold.

Although not making it close to the same influence as Hamas or Fatah, they do have cumulative popularity and a significant amount of power in the PLC and PLO.

A smaller party made from returning Palestinians from Jordan and led by Palestinian-Jordanian Hana al-Masyouni, the Party of National Revival and Awakening, is also a part of the new political party, enjoying financial backing from Amman-based businesses and sympathizers, such as al-Masyouni’s own brother, entrepreneur Bashar al-Masyouni.

Mid-2021, Bashar al-Masyouni’s sponsors for Palestinians to settle in Area C, by the Oslo Accords, allowed administration by the Israelis. Palestinians and Israelis clash as the Palestinian settlements are deemed illegal by Israel and security forces move to evict.

In the 90s, Mexico opened its economy to NAFTA, allowing them to use the United States to secure their economy. The Mexican government has a future of strife and conflict ahead of them, constantly battling corruption and the drug trade in order to make Mexico the regional power of Latin America.

In the lead up to the 2018 election, Enrique Peña Nieto was the least popular president on record as he did nothing to stop record breaking crime rates that made a mockery of his pledge in 2012 to halve the murder rate, flaring anger about corruption, a weak economy and Donald Trump, who was still deciding then to tear up or drastically change the North American Free-Trade Agreement.

So who did the ruling party pick to be their 2018 candidate? José Antonio Meade, a technocrat with little political baggage and lots of intellectual heft. Meade was the first candidate for a major political party who did not belong to any party, even if not the last. An economist with a doctorate from Yale University, he held more jobs in the Mexican cabinet than any living politician, including in the PAN government of Felipe Calderón. Yet to win he had to perform a horribly tricky political balancing-act. He attracted voters from the PAN and at the same time, he fired up the PRI’s online supporters and made use of the party’s formidable electoral machine, banking on direct financial support from the Peña Nieto government and sometimes downright interference like the use of the Attorney General’s Office to accuse the PAN candidate of money laundering just as the election process began, investigations which mysteriously vanished after Election Day.

Despite Meade’s above-average approval ratings for a Mexican President that saw foreign investment grow despite corruption and violence remaining rampant, which isn’t saying much, voters were tired of the PRI by 2024, even if the PRI wasn’t tired of staying in power. So what did they do? They fished further out of the political inner circle. They picked the son of billionaire Carlos Slim as their candidate, someone who was unblemished by Mexican politics and had the money and charisma to make voters forget that even if they were voting for the candidate that self-financed his campaign, that had spoken out to the international community against the Trump border wall, they were still voting for the PRI. The old, reliable PRI electoral machine is expected to do the rest but against a voter base of Mexicans more politicized, connected, and active than ever thanks to social media, it will face its strongest challenge to date.

Unknown to the public, President Carlos Slim Domit, son of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, is the childhood friend of Cristobal Carvajal alias “El Licensiado”; co-founder of a small but powerful clandestine political cabal called “El Yunque”. Its power lies in its wealth, political connections, and extensive business connections instead of usual violence or any other criminal activity. The PRI expect Slim to be a type of Peña Nieto president but much more subdued and willing to simply lay back and warm the Presidential Chair for another six years but the populist billionaire could have a surprise in store for the party though first he has to win the elections.

Pre-2024 History - Despite Russia's corner that it was being pushed into and lashing out into Estonia and Latvia, the Russian Far East and Siberia have been a target of new economic interests of Russian businesses and the Government. With global warming slowly turning the eternal cold of the Russian wilderness into a new area of new economic growth as permafrost and other difficult and dangerous environmental problems were being reduced. Russia plans to exploit this soon and hopefully have an economic miracle it has never seen in such a long time. Alongside the futures of Russia's economy, the future of the political and foreign affairs could lead to a new dawn, as relations with Belarus have grown exponentially and the leaders of Russia and Belarus continue to slowly align their nations, hand in hand. The talks of unification have grown louder and the possibilities of it become fruitful, leading to a new nation that could change the political sphere of internal Russia forever.

Major Domestic Issues - Cartels, Stability, Corruption, Crime rates, Drug War
Major Foreign Issues - Illegal immigrants from Central America

History - For much of recent history, Mexico has been a nation struggling to survive. The War on Drugs declared by American President Richard Nixon was not only a large blow to the stability to the struggling Mexico, but to nearly all of Latin America. The metaphorical war drove the drug trade underground through Latin America, drastically increasing government corruption, crime rates, and the power of the cartels.

In 2020, with growing belief for Fatah’s inability to handle Israel and the fundamentalism of Hamas, a coalition between multiple center-left and left-wing parties, including the PFLP, the PPP, the PPSF, the DFLP, the PNI, the PDU, and other smaller parties. Although not making it close to the same influence as Hamas or Fatah, they do have cumulative popularity and a significant amount of power in the PLC and PLO.

A smaller party made from returning Palestinians from Jordan and led by Palestinian-Jordanian Hana al-Masyouni, the Party of National Revival and Awakening, is also a part of the new political party, enjoying financial backing from Amman-based businesses and sympathizers, such as al-Masyouni’s own brother, entrepreneur Bashar al-Masyouni.

Mid-2021, Bashar al-Masyouni’s sponsors for Palestinians to settle in Area C, by the Oslo Accords, allowed administration by the Israelis. Palestinians and Israelis clash as the Palestinian settlements are deemed illegal by Israel and security forces move to evict.

Pre-2024 History -
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea is, for the first time in a long time, finally thawing its relations with the international community. With the increase of isolationism from the United States, the Hermit Kingdom finally has a short period of time to catch its breath. However, this does not mean it is backing down. Between 2018 and 2024, the DPRK has conducted a grand total of 28 missile tests, demonstrating not only its ability, but continued commitment, to protecting its internal affairs from the outside world. The Nuclear Program has also steamed forward, undeterred by attempted efforts to contain it, and has doubled in arsenal in recent years.

In the meantime, however, the North Korean economy continues to falter, and her population stagnates as a result of serious poverty and food shortages. While not nearly as indebted as it could be in its situation, the DPRK is still in a deeply poor state economically. With China being by far the overwhelmingly only foreign supporter and trade partner of the Kim regime, the North Korean economy has yet to diversify, or, indeed, expand into a state where it is capable of continuing to maintain its armed forces. While the framework of several policies have begun being worked on by the Kim administration, and an increased effort to improve foreign relations with Russia, the combination of an already poor economy and a stubborn leader may lead to these ideas dying before they can even get started.
