2021: A New Decade (OOC:Open)

2021: A New Decade


Image


IC|Discord: Coming soon|Map: Coming soon


The 2020s. A decade set to be nightmarish and a turning point in the history of humanity. Climate Change is the existential threat that must urgently be tackled in this decade, and humanity must learn to cope with the constantly growing population that does not look likely to slow down let alone stop growing anytime soon.

In Asia, the Chinese Dragon is emerging as the regional hegemon, pushing regional nations to choose sides between them and the West while internally the regime battles against resistance in Hong Kong and ethnic tension in the far West. In India, the nation is dealing with religious unrest and rapid economic growth and modernization as well as increasing tension along the border with Pakistan, particularly in the Kashmir Region.

In Europe, Euroskepticism is on the rise in many European nations. The successful Brexit referendum led the charge showing Euroskeptics all across the continent that leaving was possible. In Spain regional tensions threaten to explode between Madrid and Barcelona.

In the Middle East, tensions between Israel and Iran are at an all-time high. Adding to this is the emerging regional cold war between Saudi Arabia and Iran. In Yemen, the civil war still burns as a testing ground for this regional cold war.

In Africa, ethnic and religious tensions pose a danger all over the continent. In the Congo, warlords fight over land and resources like coltan offering fortunes on the international market. In the Saraha and Sahel regions, remnants of ISIS and other organizations ravage the land and people. Yet there are lights of hope that still sparkle.

In North America, Canada is dealing with ever-increasing political divides much like the US to the South. Inside the US tensions between Republicans and Democrats have never seemed worse. In Mexico, the Cartels fight hard against the central government in Mexico City their corruption touches most parts of the nation.

In Latin America, the dictator Nicholas Maduro still clings to power even as his position is contested by Juan Guaidó. In Colombia, an unstable peace agreement official holds peace between the government and FARC.

How will the nations of the world tackle these issues? How will their pasts define their future, which nations will come out on top during this decade, and how will future generations remember this critical decade?

In this roleplay, you will take the helm of the nation of your choice. You have the ability to change the history of your nation from 1991 onwards within realism and with a few major event exceptions as well as anything states in the OP or other applications.

Should I be India, the UK, or Turkey?

Edit: I'm narrowing it down to the UK and Turkey. Oh boy, it's hard picking one. If I'm the UK, I get to be a respected major player. If I'm Turkey, I get to play around in the Middle East, and that's VERY fun. Oh boy, this is so hard to choose.

Second edit: I'm going to app as Turkey tomorrow.

Since we can change events after 1991 (excluding those mentioned by the OP), I was thinking of making a Greece-North Macedonia-Serbia Confederation.

It was an actual, seriously considered proposal (on state/political level): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greece%E2%80%93Serbia_relations#Confederation_plan_from_1992

Would that be allowed?

Suharto's efforts to create a split within Indonesia's second-largest (albeit still a puppet of the central government) party failed, and Megawati Soekarnoputri asserted total control of the PDI. The name of the party was changed (to PDI Perjuangan/PDI-P). Therefore, no Saturday 27 mob in Jakarta.

- Indonesian Banks rely less on the US Dollar pre-1997; instead preferring to diversify their loaning under the Bank Indonesia policy (by loaning in Franc, Poundsterling, Mark, Guilder, Lira, and Yen; assortments of international currency in an effort to be less dependent on the greenback). Therefore, Indonesia was not as hard hit by the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis like it was in real life.

- No mass capital flight from Indonesia during 1997-98; the main cause was that Indonesian banks, while faced with a devaluation of the Rupiah compared to the USD, still had a large reserve of other foreign currency as well as gold and Rupiah to service debts. Bank Indonesia was able to handle the crisis quite well. However, Suharto still suffered a minor stroke in 1997 that prevented him from attending the ASEAN Presidents' Summit.

- Mass rioting and looting did not happen as severe as it was in real life, particularly because the monetary crisis did not hit Indonesia so hard (GDP fell by 35-38%, several points above Thailand, the source of the crisis). However, the Indonesian Reformation still happened, and Suharto was forced to step down from power. His successor, President B.J. Habibie, passed laws granting autonomy, political freedom, freed many political prisoners and also held a referendum in East Timor. Military personnel were withdrawn immediately, so there was little to no human rights violations. The Corruption Eradication Commission was formed in 1999 to investigate New Order corrupt bureaucrats and cronies, and confiscate their wealth. A new job and investment legislation is passed, allowing faster economic recovery and easier investment avenues in Indonesia. The Ministry of Information and Ministry of Welfare, two of the New Order's primary weapons to stranglehold the country (the former to control the media and the latter presenting a large corruption problem) was disbanded; the Corruption Eradication Commission was authorized to imprison ex-New Order bureaucrats.

- In 2002, to prevent the tensions across the country as experienced under President Abdurrahman Wahid, the MPR authorized the 4th amendment of the 1945 Indonesian Constitution. It formally changed the name of first-level subdivisions from province to state, and granted states greater autonomy in regional government (similar to Indian states). However, the clause of Indonesia being an "Unitary State" is still maintained; and political parties must also adhere to the Pancasila (Indonesia's national ideology as laid out in the 1945 constitution), although, given that Pancasila encompassed a broad spectrum of politics, this clause was not very limiting on the formation of political parties.

- In 2006, real per capita income has surpassed fiscal year of 1996/1997 levels, and was well on track to resume Indonesia's pre-1997 growth levels. 2007 and 2008 recorded an unprecedented spike of 8.0% to 9.0% before being slowed down by the 2008 financial crisis. Unlike many of its more export-dependent neighbours, Indonesia managed to skirt the Great Recession, helped by strong domestic demand (which makes up about two-thirds of the economy) and a government fiscal stimulus package of about 1.4% of GDP. After India and China, Indonesia became the third-fastest growing economy in the G20. The $512-billion-economy expanded 7.4% in the first quarter from a year earlier, and in the previous month, the IMF revised its 2009 forecast for the country to 5-6% from 4.5%. With the rapid reduction of public and external debt, strengthening of public and corporate sector banking sheets, and capitalization to reduce banking vulnerabilities, Indonesia managed to reach an unemployment rate of 5.8% in 2012.

- In 2016, mass protests happened in Jakarta as a result of Jakarta (ethnic Chinese and Christian) governor Basuki "Ahok" Purnama's alleged defamation of the Qur'an. However, it was later found out that the evidence to this accusation is, in fact, an edited video. Subsequently the Central Jakarta District Court ruled that Purnama was not guilty of blasphemy. A rally was held by conservative groups on 2th December, 2016 (the 212 Movement). This surge of popular outcry cost Purnama his re-election as Jakarta Governor. However, when protesters rioted, demanded for Purnama to be thrown in jail, President Widodo (the former Governor of Jakarta; Purnama was his vice-governor) authorized the mass arrest of protesters, faced with charges of destroying public facilities, defamations, and hate speech. The Indonesian Military patrolled the streets of Jakarta for three months, until tensions subsided. Meanwhile, the conservative cleric al-Habib Muhammad Rizieq Shihab, one of the Movement's primary supporters, became involved in a criminal case involving sexually explicit messages he exchanged with Firza Hussein. Subsequently Shihab fled to Mecca, Saudi Arabia (to perform 'umrah), but has not since returned to Indonesia. The Indonesian National Police issued an arrest warrant for him in case he ever returned. Government crackdowns towards conservative groups, however, still happened - with several critics saying that Indonesia "is sliding backwards towards the New Order era".

- House of Representatives speaker Setya Novanto, involved in a mass corruption scandal (regarding the electronic ID card program thaw was implemented across Indonesia), was caught by the Corruption Eradication Commission. Further investigations reveal even bigger corruption scandal involving many government officials. All of them was subsequently seized and imprisoned in the island prison of Nusa Kambangan (off the coast of Central Java), while several new anti-corruption laws are passed on the parliament. This incident helped to massively reduce the amount of government corruption in Indonesia.

- A series of infrastructure (highways, ports, airports, and more) projects as well as a new job creation and investment law was passed on 2019, shortly after President Widodo's re-election. This further increased foreign investment in Indonesia, especially with the booming trade war between the United States and China.

Should I be Sweden, Ukraine, Brazil, Thailand, the Philippines or maybe even an independent Ruthenia (Zakarpattia Oblast, Prešov Region, Košice Region and Podkarpackie Voivodeship)? I can only be one of them, so which one fits better?
