1930 - A decade of change (1930's, Pre-war RP/ OOC)

1930 - A decade of change

Image


The year is 1930 and 12 years after the end of the great war, the world is falling into the mistakes that preceded 1914 and with it, a war may soon be around the corner. However, that is not a certainty just yet and it is still only a may. The 1930's a decade which saw Communism, the rising political power of Fascism, and the old guard of capitalism fight it out on the streets on Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa. But that might all change for this is the times of change. Will the NSDAP continue to upstart the German nation? Will the Soviet Union prosper under Stalin or will Trotsky retake control and continue his revolution? Will the old powers of Britain and France hold onto their empires or will Communism, Fascism, and nationalism in their colonies be their downfall. Nobody knows for certain what the next 10 years will hold for the world but what is know is with the great depression affecting the world people will be forced to take radical action and with radical action comes radical change. Will you be that radical change?


Hello and welcome to 1930 - A decade of change. If you still don't know what this RP is about then let me sum it up; it is an RP set during the turbulent time of the 1930s where the world would set itself up for the beginning of the second world war. But a second world war does not need to come or even the way it happened in real life. Maybe your Germany does not allow the Nazis to control the Reichstag or maybe your Soviet Union falls and the return of the Tsar is echoed throughout the world. The choice is up to you how your nation will go.

Picking a nation

It is recommended that you pick a nation you feel comfortable playing with as well as one that you know the basic history of the time period since this RP will not allow Alternative history before 1st January 1930. You are allowed to change after that date. Because of this, I would recommend you read up on a nation's history before you decide to commit to it so that you can get the most fun out of it. One final thing is that the world is very big and I would recommend that you pick nations all over the world.

Post Quality:
I expect a good post quality from everyone, which means no one/two/three liners nor a simple paragraph. At least two decent paragraphs are required for every post. Adding simple details to your posts is an easy way to make sure that you meet the standard and if you're not sure on what to post, just take another look at the issues going on in your nations or the world and add something about it in your post, it can be a plan to resolve an economic crisis or it even could be a simple reply to a certain event that happened somewhere on the other side of the world.

Timescale:
Almost everything will happen faster in the RP than in real life if only to avoid the troubling reality of having to wait years for things to improve. While we won't make drastic changes in a month, we won't have to wait years either. This is a matter you have to decide on your own a bit to figure out what your nation's capabilities are in terms of those matters. I'll keep an eye on it and if I feel it goes too fast or too slow I'll let it know.
In the RP itself, we will pass time by simply posting dates at our posts while trying to keep it at around three months per IC page. Make sure you read other people's posts as we will slow down during busy times while we will speed up the time at times nothing really interesting happens.

Historical Accuracy:
I don't think much has to be said here. Everything up till our starting date will remain the same as IRL, or at least as close as we can get it as there remains a gap of a few days.

Waging War:
At some point, there will likely erupt a war somewhere and since this RP is a realistic one there will be strict rules attached to waging wars. To start, if you want to start a war you are required to have my permission to do so, this only to avoid reckless and unrealistic wars everywhere.
Now let's say you're sure about starting a war, whether with another nation, civil war, or even a coup, you'll either TG me or ask me about it in the OOC. Provide as many details as possible as the more details I have the more tempted I am to agree to it. Think of the way on how you're going to build-up to the war, where you'll try to find support, what you explain to the UN, what you're going to do to try to avoid the war at first, how to establish the supply lines, what you do concerning the terrain, the mobilization of troops, the finance, etc. So basically provide me with as much information as possible. If you're not sure about some of the matters don't hesitate to ask, I'm always willing to help you out, even if it concerns a war against my own nation.
Even though starting a war is possible I will remain very strict on the matter and in most cases it'd be better if you choose a nation that is already involved in a conflict instead of trying to start a war with one that is not.

For war, you must follow these four steps: Seek Approval for War (for example, if you're the united states), Prepare & Mobilize Your Forces, Launch Your Forces, Attack
+ You must give the other nation the chance to respond when you launch or even attack with your forces. For example, a nation would detect a large air, naval, or ground force, and would, promptly, intercept. They may not know exact numbers and may end up with more or less to defend (and it's appreciated if you use only forces that would, reasonably, be able to heed the call to defend, meaning that if you don't have a military base for miles, it'll take a while, and you still have to mobilize to defend), but the intercepting force will try to defend the nation you wish to attack. That means you might have to wait and will have to wage war properly.
+ Use spell check, proper grammar and punctuation, and all of that other stuff that helps you to write well.

Technology:
It is important to understand your nation's technology and the limits that go with it. Major powers will start with the most advanced technology and they will most likely hold that position throughout the RP. It is allowed to improve your technology but knows that you can't jump ahead on these matters. If you're not sure whether something is allowed, just ask and I'll let you know if it is okay to use it or not.

Events:
From time to time Events or random Events will pop up in a separate post. It could be anything from a terrorist attack to a species going extinct to an economic or social crisis. It's up to each nation whether to respond on it and how to respond on it and the only ones who are not allowed to ignore it are those nations affected by it. If you have any idea yourself for a random event, whether it concerns your own nation or another don't hesitate to send me a TG and I will see what I can do with it.

NPC Actions:
NPC's will be somewhat semi-active in the RP as we shouldn't ignore all those nations that aren't being played by people. While we won't be hearing from them a lot they will undergo changes, end up in conflicts and choose sides in conflicts from time to time. It's important to interact with NPC's yourself as well as most likely one or more of your allies will end up being an NPC. Now if you want to interact with them you only have to send me a TG with the stuff you want to do with the said NPC nation. I will either reply that the nation agrees to it or that it doesn't agree to it depending on its own interests.
Another aspect of the NPC action revolves around the fact that you play a government and not its entire population. This means that your citizens can change from opinions themselves and that they could even show their discontent with one of your recently accepted policies. More important, however, if you're a democratic state, they will select the ones you're about to RP once elections arrive. Now as for the elections I will keep your wishes in mind but there might be occasions in which I am forced to have the citizens elect a government that you do not desire. It is important to keep this in mind when you're about to play a nation, would you mind having to play a radical right-wing government or a socialist government?
I will always use the major parties in a democracy to start with, then, along with your wishes in mind and the smaller parties, I'll look at what the people would want and make an election result on it. Sometimes it might be quick and easy, other times I'll have to get myself up to date with the state of affairs regarding this stuff in your nation.

Britain and her empire

One final thing I want to give a note to is that Britain due to the nature of the empire at that time. The person RPing as the UK will not be allowed to directly control the Dominions these being Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, and Malaysia. The same also goes for France and French Indochina. This is to allow more space in the RP for people to chose nations since Britain would take up a 1/4 of the map if RPed as one whole single nation.

General Rules:
At least there are of course the general rules which you must obey.
1) Don't Flame or Troll, just don't.
2) Obey the forum rules at all times.
3) Know how to lose. Don't be a dick if something doesn't play out your way.
4) Metagaming, don't do it. It is not allowed to use any knowledge you obtained outside of the IC in the IC itself.
5) Have Fun!

Okay thanks. So unless the ROC charcters gets extremely lucky, or I turn out to be extremely incompetent, I should still own some land until the fifth encirclement campaigns. What do you think my military size should be? I was thinking somewhere near 20-40k.

I believe those numbers to be around correct I will do a bit more research into the area just to make sure but go ahead and start with your app with those numbers

Do I have to name every soviet, or can I do go 1 year ahead and just name it the Chinese Soviet Republic? Also on Wikipedia, it states that Mao Zedong became the head of government and state in 1931 for the Soviet Republic, though Li Lisan was the top leader from 1928 to 1930. I'm assuming since the timeline becomes divergent by the start date, that I have the choice of whether or not to make him incompetent and replace him with Mao Zedong or someone else.

Postby Union Princes » Thu Jul 02, 2020 11:43 pm

Nation Name: Republic of China
Head of State: Chiang Kai-Shek
Head of GovernmentChiang Kai-Shek

Government Form: Unitary Military Dictatorship
Ideology: Three Pinciples of the People (center-right to right-wing)
Foreign Policy: maintaining international recognition of be the successor state to the Qing Empire.
Civil Freedoms /10: poor 3/10
Political Freedoms /10: poor 3/10
Economic Freedoms /10: mixed 6/10

Military Size: 2 Million active/ 3 million reserve
Military Description: The National Revolutionary Army, the NRA, was the military branch of the Kuomintang, the Nationalist government of China, founded in 1925. It was organized with the help of the Soviet Union and advised under the doctrine of the Three Principles of the People, it hardly made any distinction between party, state, and army loyalty. A large portion of its officer corps graduated from the Whampoa Military Academy while Chiang Kai-shek became commander-in-chief of the NRA in 1925 before the would-be successful Northern Expedition. This successful military campaign marked the end of the Warlord Era in 1928 though smaller warlords continued to persist. After the dissolution of the First United Front in 1927, the KMT purged the NRA of communist and Soviet influences within its ranks before Chiang turning to the Weimar Republic for reorganization and modernization of the NRA. Although the Weimar Republic sent advisors to China, the Treaty of Versailles prevented them from serving in military positions. Currently, Chiang requested Ludendorff and von Mackensen as advisors and is awaiting Germany’s reply.

Despite the abundance of manpower the NRA enjoys, it suffers from understrength and generally untrained. European military observers would note that the NRA fights like a 19th-century army than a 20th-century one. Conscription is a messy and deadly affair. Kidnappings by press gangs or army units are common practices to enforce recruitment. Given little food or water, 50% of all conscripts would die before reaching the training camp.

Unit Organization: Military Affairs Commission > Military Region > Army Corps > Army Group > Route Army & Field Army > Corps > Division > Brigade > Regiment > Battalion > Company > Platoon > Squad

The NRA employs their infamous “Dare-to-Die Corps”, essentially glorified suicide squads. These suicide attacks were used frequently during the Xinhai Revolution and the Warlord era. Chinese troops would strap explosives like dynamite sticks and grenades to their bodies before charging at enemy positions to blow up. Martyrdom was guaranteed to anyone willing to join the Dare-to-Die Corps and it even inspired women to join the units.

Equipment of the NRA varies between divisions. Regular troops used the Hanyang 88 rifle (copy of the Gewehr 88) although other Mauser rifles from Germany, Belgium, and Czechoslovakia were also used. The standard LMG the NRA uses is the Brno ZB vz. 26 although it has access to Belgium and French designs due to the Soviet Aid Program. Heavy machine guns were the Type 24 water-cooled Maxim MGs and the Type Triple 10 M1917 Browning HMG. The Mauser C96 is the most common sidearm for NRA officers and NCOs and SMGs are not officially adopted by the NRA but are inherited from the incorporated warlord armies.

The distinct lack of artillery in the NRA is most apparent, however, some Central Army divisions have access to mortars imported from foreign countries.

Organizations: Blue Shirt Society/Spirit Encouragement Party/China Reconstruction Society: A secret ultranationalist faction modeled after Italian fascism in the KMT. Its origins can be traced back to the 1924 Whampoa Clique, a group that was made up of professional military officers with many of them swearing personal loyalty to Chiang.

Description of Your Nation's Economy: China is currently experiencing a period of stable economic growth in a period that would be called the Nanjing Decade. At this time, China's industry expanded significantly increasing overall GDP and industrial output. The rural economy of China still used some aspects of the late Qing system. Chinese agriculture in Nationalist China is almost completely geared towards producing cash crops for foreign markets, thus vulnerable to international price trends. Glue, tea, sugar cane, tobacco, cotton, corn, and peanuts are China's key exports. In terms of foreign investment, Japan invested 1.4 billion while England invest 1 billion
Description of Your Nation's Government: In February 1928, the Fourth Plenary Session of the 2nd Kuomintang National Congress, organized in Nanjing, passed the Reorganization of the Nationalist Government Act. This act stipulated that the Nationalist Government was to be directed and regulated under the Central Executive Committee of the Kuomintang, with the Committee of the Nationalist Government being elected by the KMT Central Committee. Under the Nationalist Government were seven ministries: Interior, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Transport, Justice, Agriculture and Mines, and Commerce. There were additional institutions added such as the Supreme Court, Control Yuan, and the General Academy. In 1930, the Nationalist is almost done fullying consolidating its power in unifying China and would begin the 2nd phase: creating a constitution and to begin the period of tutelage.
Goals for the Nation: Unite China, renegotiate the Unequal treaties, Modernize China while preserving traditional Chinese values,

I will say just to call yourself the Chinese Soviet Republic since it will make the app a lot easier and that more than likely you will become it anyway at the start. Secondly, it does mean you start with your leader being Li Lisan and your ideology being more Orthodox Marxist-Leninism then Maoism, after the start date it is up to you what you want to do.

A large portion of its officer corps graduated from the Whampoa Military Academy while Chiang Kai-shek became commander-in-chief of the NRA in 1925 before the would-be successful Northern Expedition. This successful military campaign marked the end of the Warlord Era in 1928 though smaller warlords continued to persist. After the dissolution of the First United Front in 1927, the KMT purged the NRA of communist and Soviet influences within its ranks before Chiang turning to the Weimar Republic for reorganization and modernization of the NRA. Although the Weimar Republic sent advisors to China, the Treaty of Versailles prevented them from serving in military positions. Currently, Chiang requested Ludendorff and von Mackensen as advisors and is awaiting Germany’s reply.

Despite the abundance of manpower the NRA enjoys, it suffers from understrength and generally untrained. European military observers would note that the NRA fights like a 19th-century army than a 20th-century one. Conscription is a messy and deadly affair. Kidnappings by press gangs or army units are common practices to enforce recruitment. Given little food or water, 50% of all conscripts would die before reaching the training camp.

Unit Organization: Military Affairs Commission > Military Region > Army Corps > Army Group > Route Army & Field Army > Corps > Division > Brigade > Regiment > Battalion > Company > Platoon > Squad

The NRA employs their infamous “Dare-to-Die Corps”, essentially glorified suicide squads. These suicide attacks were used frequently during the Xinhai Revolution and the Warlord era. Chinese troops would strap explosives like dynamite sticks and grenades to their bodies before charging at enemy positions to blow up. Martyrdom was guaranteed to anyone willing to join the Dare-to-Die Corps and it even inspired women to join the units.

Equipment of the NRA varies between divisions. Regular troops used the Hanyang 88 rifle (copy of the Gewehr 88) although other Mauser rifles from Germany, Belgium, and Czechoslovakia were also used. The standard LMG the NRA uses is the Brno ZB vz. 26 although it has access to Belgium and French designs due to the Soviet Aid Program. Heavy machine guns were the Type 24 water-cooled Maxim MGs and the Type Triple 10 M1917 Browning HMG. The Mauser C96 is the most common sidearm for NRA officers and NCOs and SMGs are not officially adopted by the NRA but are inherited from the incorporated warlord armies.

The distinct lack of artillery in the NRA is most apparent, however, some Central Army divisions have access to mortars imported from foreign countries.

Organizations: Blue Shirt Society/Spirit Encouragement Party/China Reconstruction Society: A secret ultranationalist faction modeled after Italian fascism in the KMT. Its origins can be traced back to the 1924 Whampoa Clique, a group that was made up of professional military officers with many of them swearing personal loyalty to Chiang.

Description of Your Nation's Economy: China is currently experiencing a period of stable economic growth in a period that would be called the Nanjing Decade. At this time, China's industry expanded significantly increasing overall GDP and industrial output. The rural economy of China still used some aspects of the late Qing system. Chinese agriculture in Nationalist China is almost completely geared towards producing cash crops for foreign markets, thus vulnerable to international price trends. Glue, tea, sugar cane, tobacco, cotton, corn, and peanuts are China's key exports. In terms of foreign investment, Japan invested 1.4 billion while England invest 1 billion
Description of Your Nation's Government: In February 1928, the Fourth Plenary Session of the 2nd Kuomintang National Congress, organized in Nanjing, passed the Reorganization of the Nationalist Government Act. This act stipulated that the Nationalist Government was to be directed and regulated under the Central Executive Committee of the Kuomintang, with the Committee of the Nationalist Government being elected by the KMT Central Committee. Under the Nationalist Government were seven ministries: Interior, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Transport, Justice, Agriculture and Mines, and Commerce. There were additional institutions added such as the Supreme Court, Control Yuan, and the General Academy. In 1930, the Nationalist is almost done fullying consolidating its power in unifying China and would begin the 2nd phase: creating a constitution and to begin the period of tutelage.
Goals for the Nation: Unite China, renegotiate the Unequal treaties, Modernize China while preserving traditional Chinese values,
