A Victory in the East


Basic Premise


It is 2021 and the world is ever shifting. Power ebbing and waning. Geo-political maneuvers at every corner. Technology rampant and society run amok with ever increasing wealth and abundance. For while Humanity has risen far and high, the disparity of have and have not only grows. While turbulence and internecine conflict goes hand in hand despite the progress Humanity itself has overall made. Religious strife, societal economic divides, ethnic upheavals in various nations, and competition for resources continues unabated. The nations of Europe jockey for power at the regional and global level. Asia is a mixture of economic ascension and political turmoil with old and new ideas clashing with all the fervor of a thousand blades. The Americas, long dominated by the United States, is at a cross roads. Dominated by a fracturing nation and host to warring ideologies engaged in furious melee for the very soul of the New World. Finally, there is Africa, the last vestiges of Empire still remaining on the Continent as a New Age dawns.

Please note anything not specified in the summaries below is free game for the players to change so long as it does not contradict the summaries below or another players previously written history. If no change is done by a player then it is assumed to have occurred as the same in OTL.

History and Points of Divergence
Organized by Epoch


A Victory in the East's principal pivoting moment is the Russian Victory on the Eastern Front and a separate Armistice with the Central Powers under the Treaty of Galicia. But the groundwork for this Point of Divergence was laid much earlier with the failed assassination of Alexander II. Who continued to reign on till 1892. Dying of natural causes but continuing his reformist policies. Allowing a larger movement of modernization and classical liberalism to be nurtured in the Russian Empire. Alexander III, who immediately succeeded his father, survived him by only two years. Dying of Nephritis (Kidney Failure) following traumatic injuries sustained in an 1888 train crash. Allowing Alexander II's grandson, Nicholas II, to ascend to the Imperial Throne. Nicholas II, raised in the shadow of his grandfather, would continue the reforms and even under pressure from the Socialist and Liberal Parties of Russia which flourished in the latter years of Alexander II's rule, to make education compulsory for children. Matching Western educational doctrines that had emerged in the mid-19th century in France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Finally, Grigory Semyonov was able to prevent a Russo-Japanese rivalry with the forging of an economic alliance in the late 1890s.

The Great War in this timeline started out much the same as in the OTL. The Assassination of Franz Ferdinand, a powder keg already formed, with Austria-Hungary and Serbia finally tossing the match. Austria-Hungary invaded Serbia while Germany enacted the Schlieffen Plan to invade through neutral Belgium. Penetrating West as far as the Marne River until stopped by the French Army and the incoming British Expeditionary Force. In the Pacific, Africa, and Middle East the conflict largely follows the OTL timeline.

1914: Eastern Front
The Russian Imperial Army, more modernized than in OTL, suffered a crushing defeat at Tannenburg but managed to fight a much better retreat to a front-line running from Klaipeda to Warsaw, to the Carpathians. While Imperial armies to the South overran Austro-Hungarian Galicia and managed to penetrate into the Pannonian Plain. Inflicting an even more severe defeat on the Austro-Hungarians than OTL due to having a better equipped and modern army. Forcing Germany to diver substantial forces South in what would become known as 'Mackensen's Mad Dash.' Shoring up the front at the River Tisza. Denying Hindenburg and Ludendorff, fresh from their victory at Tannenburg, from pursuing the Russian Army out of East Prussia and Congress Poland completely.

1914-1917: Western Front & Trench Warfare

The Western Front largely spent the early months of the war the same as the OTL. Belgium overrun and pushed to the River Yser. With Imperial German armies successfully penetrating as far into France as the River Marne before being stopped by combined Franco-British forces. What followed would be approximately three years of continuous trench warfare where the Germans suffer less casualties than the British and French due to the strategic and tactical stances of both sides.
Image


1915: Eastern Front and the Entrance of Italy

The Eastern Front in 1915 was primarily pre-occupied by Central Power's offensives to push the Imperial Russian Army out of Hungary and the Carpathians. A venture which was coming to fruition in a series of bloody engagements long the Tisza and Alfold of Hungary when Italy entered the war on the side of the Entente. The Austro-Hungarian Army, stretched thin, managed to contain, halt, and in some places push back the Italians in arguably its finest campaign during the battles of the Isonzo. Nullifying local Italian numerical superiority with effective use of defensive terrain and superior doctrines gleaned from experiences on the Eastern Front and German forces in the West.

Meanwhile German forces engaged in the bloody Gorlice-Tarnow offensive and are initially successful until the an effective defense of the Vistula river halts the offensive. The goal of Warsaw out of reach.

Major success would come in the conclusion of the Serbian Campaign, the Ottoman defeat of British Imperial forces at Gallipoli, and the Siege of Kut. While also enduring the disaster of Sarikamish and a Russian advance into North-Eastern Turkey.

1916: Romanian Entrance and Bloody Stalemate in the West

The Romanian entrance to the war came as a surprise given the King's German heritage. Reviving Allied forces in the East as Romanian reinforcements reinforce Russian positions in the Carpathians while the Brusilov Offensive manages to not only reach the Tisza but force a crossing. Moving into the heart of Hungary and throwing Vienna into shock. The Kingdom of Hungary without the Emperor's consent begins overtures to the Tsar and Romanians. Which, despite Franco-British protests to not accept until Germany was defeated was too much a benefit to the Russians and Romanians. The Russians under mounting internal unrest over losses in the war, and the incompetence of the Tsarina's government at home while the Tsar was away at the front, along with Romania pressured by a Bulgaro-Turkish invasion from the South which saw Bucharest being shelled.

The result of which led to the writing on the wall being clearly stated for the Habsburg Monarchy. The Treaty of Galicia was signed on October 11th, 1916. Ending the Eastern Front in a Russian Victory. Germany would cede Posen and the surrounding region to Russia. The Kingdom of Hungary would become free of Habsburg rule. And Romania would receive territories in the Banat and Transylvanian region.

The war would continue else where on other fronts.

Image


1917-1918: United States Enters the War & Germany's Final Gambit

The United States entered the conflict in much the same manner as it did OTL. German resumption of unrestricted submarine warfare and diplomatic breakdown between itself and Germany leading to declaration of war on the side of the Entente. But with Russian and Romanian exit from the conflict the United States had to commit far more forces, in a far quicker fashion, than OTL. The American Expeditionary Force in the West was rushed to the front line with other newly raised divisions organized in the American Mesopotamian Corps, American Army of Italy, and the American Expeditionary Force in Macedonia were also hastily assembled and sent abroad. As a result American casualties were over four times higher than they where OTL.

Yet, with German forces completely spared from the East the Battle of Caporetto and Kaiserschlacht were far more successful. Even as the now Austrian Imperial Army (Hungarian forces officially withdrawn) was more or less put under German overall command it managed, with German reinforcements, to push further into Italy. While the Second Battle of the Marne ended in a costly German victory. Only valiant efforts of the French Army at the gates of Paris managed to halt the final German offensives of the war. Forcing the French Republic, already unstable due to army mutinies of the previous year, to adopt a weaker political position at the peace conference later that year. For the arrival of fresh American forces gradually pushed back the German forces into Belgium. The collapse of the German government and the signing of the Treaty of Versailles ending the conflict. The guns falling silent on November 11th, 1918.


The Roaring 20s, Weimar era instability and inflation, Mussolini's rise to power, and later Great Depression all occurred much like OTL. The major Points of Divergence being political unrest in Russia and Hitler's rise to power earlier in September, 1930.

Russian Unrest. Growing unrest in the Russian Empire was exacerbated by the human and economic cost of the Great War. The Russian Empire, though more modern and liberalized than its OTL counterpart, still was far more traditional and reactionary than its Western peers. This was coupled with nationalistic sentiment among its Polish, Ukrainian, Baltic, and Finnish citizenry. Leading to the Time of Revolution. When the Finnish, then later Polish and Ukrainian regions saw mass revolts and armed conflict throughout 1918 till 1927. Leading to the granting of Polish and later Finnish independence. While the Baltic revolts were much smaller and effectively handled. The Ukrainian territories were host to various OTL formations like the Black Army and the Red Army from a Marxist party led by Trostsky. For Lenin was never sent to Russia by the Germans.

This would lead to the compromise of 1928 with the election of the Socialist Party of Russia with a majority of seats, and strengthening of the Duma. Effectively, moving Tsar Nicholas II into position as a constitutional monarch.

In Germany, Hitler rose to power in the September elections following political maneuvering with Hindenburg in the face of the German financial crisis due to the Treaty of Versailles imposed upon the German state. Essentially, allowing Nazi Germany to start forming much earlier. Though Hitler could not wield absolute power until Hindenburg's death a few years later. Nevertheless, Hitler and Germany began to skirt the Treaty of Versailles much earlier due to a NSDAP majority in the Reichstag.

Ultimately leading to the Anschluss of Austria and pogroms against 'undesirables' as deemed by the Nazi Party. While many scientists that would work on the Manhattan Project would be unable to flee Germany and die as a result of an earlier implementation of Nazi racial ideas; though its Emperor Karl von Habsburg abdicating much later due to political pressure over the perceived failings of the monarchy; and an OTL run up to war in 1939 with the invasion of Poland by Germany in September. Quickly defeating the Polish state before conducting a series of campaigns that largely ran like OTL. Leading to Barbarossa in 1941. Here the war also largely followed OTL courses of action with Russia initially caught off guard, suffering heavy losses, and then gradually pushing back the Axis forces while the Western Allies push in from the West.
Image

The war would end in much the same manner with Germany divided and two blocs in Europe. A NATO dominated West and a Russian dominated East. However, since there is no USSR and therefore no Capitalist-Communist tension the Cold War did not occur until 1968. Three years after German reunification in 1965 when the Federal Republic of Germany was allowed to form.

The Pacific War would not see American entrance into the conflict in 1941 due to Imperial Russia supplying Japan with oil and other resources through much of the conflict. Negating the pressures for a Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and while Japanese forces would be eventually pushed once America did join at the behest of the British and French in February of 1943 it would be against a Japan without nearly the same resource shortages. Making the Pacific War a much more grueling affair that would ultimately cost over a million American lives. As Japanese industry was not held back by fuel and precious metal shortages. Forcing a more amicable peace settlement in August, 1945, where Japan still retained several of its dominions abroad.

Post-War the Colonial Empires of Britain and France would be wracked by financial troubles, economic downturn, and the beginning of independence movements. The Free India Movement led to an independent India by 1950 and parts of Africa and Asia were granted full independence during the course of the 1950's and 1960s. While the United States finally ascended to position as principal rival to the Russian Empire and its bloc of client states in Eastern Europe in the same period.
Image


The Cold War was a much shorter period of time in this RP for a few reasons. Its emergence being at first due to the duel spheres of the United States and Imperial Russia in the aftermath of the German reunification in 1965 when the victorious allies agreed to remove their forces from nation. Germany, now a Federal Republic, joined NATO in 1967 to the protest of Russia. NATO itself, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, being founded earlier on April 4th of 1949 with founding members being: The United States of America, The United Kingdom, France, Italy, Canada, Norway, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Denmark, and Portugal. While the modernizing administrations of Nikita Khruschchev and Andrei Kosygin were replaced by more reactionary socialist leadership in the form of Leonid Brezhnev and later Gorbachev.
Image
During this period Anti-Colonialism would emerge but be much slower and full de-colonization would not be achieved even to the present. Meaning various African and South Asian countries would not achieve independence until later in time or not at all. The end of the Cold War would be marked by economic recession as a result of Socialist Party politics under the Brezhnev and Gorbachev administrations in the 1970s and 1980s. On the heels of previous economic growth by the Khrushchev and Kosygin administrations of the 50s and 60s. While the Tsar was once more turning into an autocrat by the decline of Russian fortunes throughout the 1990s and early 2000s.

A situation not reversed until the appointment of Vladimir Putin and Alexei Kudrin into the offices of President and Prime Minister of the Empire.


The United States would achieve temporary ascendancy as the worlds most powerful nation from 1993 to roughly 2007 when the onset of the Great Recession and Housing market crash of 2008 occurred back to back. While social and political polarization accelerated into a fracturing Union. By 2021 more than half of US States would be readying referendums for secession along regional and ideological lines.


Rules
  • This is a Geopolitical RP. Not a war RP. There are consequences for warmongering and they're very severe. As such it is expected that players should have a valid casus belli (case for war) before going into one.
  • There will be at times a third party mechanic known as the Global Agenda to simulate global events and reactions to your decisions. Please note anything outside of your nation is solely in the sphere of this individual. Operators are only to arbitrate disputes should they arise and assist in the narrative being formed alongside running their own nations. This entity is and will be impartial, taking every post into consideration, and as such you may found outcomes beneficial or not coming your way. You may dispute or appeal to the Operators to make a change. But it has to be done civilly and give a logical explanation on why any such happening/event is deemed unfair or improbable.
  • Respect other players and follow all forum guidelines.
  • Posts must meet a minimum standard of four paragraphs or sixteen complete sentences per post. All diplomatic 'cables, letters, or messages' of any sort must be typed out. There are to be no one-liners during such diplomatic negotiations or talks.
  • You are playing the role of a leader and their affiliates. As such I ask you to use common sense. Any such 'gamey' behavior that is totally at odds with anything remotely close to what your application is, purely to accrue some benefit to yourself as a way to 'win' against other players, will not be tolerated.
  • No godmodding or meta behavior. If you need to discuss something among players, use the OOC, and any knowledge there will be treated as OOC-only. Opportunistic behavior such as making IC decisions based off OOC discussions will be dealt with severely.
  • Nuclear Weapons were developed much later in this setting. During the much later Cold War and immediately curtailed by multi-national treaties. As such Nuclear Proliferation never truly occurred and such stockpiles are a fraction of what they are OTL.

History

The Russian Empire has its roots in the Tsardom of Russia and Muscovy before it. The Empire, formed by Peter the Great, was one of the Great Powers of Europe from its inception and victory in the Great Northern War. The continued expansion of Russian territory in the East and intermittent development of the Russian state and people. Meant that Russia, like no other European power, waxed and waned between imposing giant and vast backwater. Its great victories in the Napoleonic Wars fading by the middle of the 19th Century as Reactionary policies caused Russia to lag behind. Until the ascension of Alexander II and later continuation of modernizing policies under his grandson, Nicholas II.

Russia entered the First World War with mixed results. Great drives into the Austro-Hungarian Empire checked by the defeat at Tannenburg in the same year. Government incompetence at home nearly fomented full revolution when the Tsar returned victorious with a treaty asserting Russian power throughout the Balkans and across Eastern Europe like never before. At the cost of rising nationalistic sentiments among various polities in the Baltics, Ukraine, Poland, and Finland. A turbulent following decade saw the rise of a semi-democratic government under the Socialist Party of Russia. Who further modernized the country and enacted various liberal reforms. Ultimately, put to the test with the invasion of the Empire by Nazi Germany in 1941. The aging Tsar Nicholas II called a Great Patriotic War and despite suffering millions of casualties, civilian and military, the Russians managed to drive the Wehrmacht from the Gates of Moscow to the Halls of the Reichstag. The Tsars own grandchildren fought in the war in various capacities.

Tsar Nicholas II would die of natural causes in 1946 and his son, stricken with hemophilia from a young age, would ascend to the thrown as Tsar Alexei I of the Russian Empire. Alexei, however, was mentally sharp if politically inept. Allowing trusted administrations under Khrushchev and Kosygin to run the government. Ultimately, reducing the monarchy to a ceremonial role. A role maintained by his own successor, his nephew Peter IV. Peter IV likewise modeled the monarchy in practice like those of his Windsor counterparts in the United Kingdom. As a result some blame can be placed upon him for the Brezhnev and Gorbachev regimes that saw the stagnation and decline of the country's fortunes.

Peter IV would be succeeded by Alexander IV, who abdicated after a nervous breakdown in 1993 during the Yeltsin administration as a result of the rapidly declining fortunes and pressures of state. Leaving his younger brother, Andrei, as Tsar. Andrei was energetic if aloof to internal government matters. His support of Putin, reinforced by swift victories over rebellious Chechnya and stabilization of the economy. Followed by the reforms of Kudrin on the economic front. Led to a celebrated reign. Andrei, however, would abdicate the throne in favor of his daughter, tutored by Putin himself. As the first Tsarina since the 18th century.

Macro-Effect & Global Crisis List

Postby Imperialisium » Fri May 14, 2021 8:14 pm

Macro-Effects (ME's)

Macro-Effects are pretty much what they are in a literal sense. Large scale features of your nation that will effect your gameplay. They can be removed if resolved (though difficult and a lot of it up to RNG by the Global Agenda) and therefore do not expect to, in one post, cancel them out. Every nation is to have three at the start, some, such as for the Major powers will have theirs preset to offer examples and set the initial scenario. Minors may be able to create their own but only one can be positive and they have to be realistic. So if you're playing say, South Africa, you may want to take a cursory glance at the OTL Nation of South Africa to get a basic idea when formulating your application. If you require assistance let the Operators know.

An Overvalued Pound
The British Pound Stirling remains one of the most highly valued currencies in the world. Edging out the United States Dollar despite its greater influence in the West and the Russian Ruble which is the currency of the fuel industry. However, it is a double-edged sword with the United Kingdom and its Empire facing one fiscal crisis after another since the end of World War II. Starting with the Suez Crisis and Oil Embargo, Credit pressures, and wartime debt. A situation punctuated over the following decades to the present by rising commodities cost, a lack of demand for British goods, and stagnating productivity in the home country.

Effect: British economic growth curtailed to 1% a year, with negative modifiers on budgetary issues.

The End of Empire?
The British Empire's zenith is long past. Will you save it? Or finally let the Old Lion be laid to rest. The United Kingdom's colonies, territories, and mandates have receded much in the intervening decades since the end of the Second World War. Not entirely dissimilar to the fortunes of France and Portugal. However, Britain's only significant and violent separatist movements are that of the Ugandan Uprising and the Sudanese Civil War in Darfur.

Effect: Secessionist/Independence movements throughout remaining colonies and territories except for Hong Kong.

A Diamond Jubilee
The British Monarchy remains a beacon of Anglo culture and callback to the United Kingdom's territorial zenith during the 1920s.

Effect: Strong diplomatic and military ties with former British dominions.


The Tunisian Crisis
Tunisia remains France's only North African territory following the bloody Algerian War and collapse of the Fourth French Republic in the geo-political fallout that transpired in the immediate aftermath. Leading to the loss of the majority of French Africa and highlighting French geo-political weakness during the Post-Second World War and Cold War years. However, Tunisian separatism, long kept under wraps, has reached a boiling point. Despite French investments and integration in the territory native Tunisians, aided by foreign fighters and nationals, have called for independence either by peace or violence. Only time will tell which is the outcome.

Effect: Tunisia in a state of multi-factional civil war between Islamic jihadis, civil independence movements, and the Pro-French upper and middle class.

Legacy of De Gaulle
Due to soured relations in 1966 between the United States and France. French forces are not integrated forces within the NATO alliance. Further, instability within French colonial territories and economic stagnation at home has led for calls to forge a new path for France.

Effect: Relations with the United States and NATO have decayed to the point were ejection or complete withdrawal via popular referendum are viable opportunities/fates for the Fifth Republic.

The Yellow Jackets
The French economy has been stagnating for years. With GDP growth only expected to average 0.5% while rising commodity costs, fuel prices, and high unemployment with little prospects has created feelings of disenfranchisement in the metropolitan French population.

Effect: Social unrest in French European territories. Without economic reform in the next IC election cycle could yield significant political challenges for ruling parties.

French Interventionism in Africa
France still has some vestiges of Empire and through its military and financial power over former African colonies has created a quasi-colonial situation. Armed conflicts simmer in current colonial possessions while the interventionism is only barely tolerated by neighboring nations.

Effect: Independence movements in Sub-Saharan Colonies and costly deployment of French forces across current territories.

Legacy of the Reich
The Federal Republic of Germany is stuck between Colonial Powers past their prime and an unfriendly Eastern Europe. But it remains a median of Democracy, from a most unlikely source, for now.

Effect: Strong Democratic ideals and social cohesion for these principles.

Underfunded Bundeswehr
Following defeats in the World Wars the German political establishment has taken a hard anti-military approach. Whether that remains in future years or not is yet to be determined.

Effect: German military spending capped at 2% of the GDP.

Specter of Prussia
Prussian legacy remains a hot button topic within Germany. Even with current underfunding and gutting of its military the German military retains a degree of efficiency, innovation, and professionalism few can match. While also acting as the last bastion of Germany's right-wing past.

Effect: Efficient and profitable military-industrial complex.

An Unstable Bundestag
The Bundestag, the assembly that governs the nation, is currently under a coalition government that includes the Green Party and the Christian Democratic Union. However, ideological differences between these parties coupled with the rise of the Alternative for Deutschland and National Union parties, two far-right political parties, have caused the governing coalition to teeter on the edge of collapse.

The Gasoline Crisis
The Green Party, the largest party in the Bundestag, is the leader of the current governing coalition, and has pushed through many environmental protection laws. This includes a major tariff on imported oil products, including gasoline. This tariff has caused the price of these to go up, which was the intended effect, however, people are unhappy about the high price of gasoline, and most people cannot get around this by buying an electric vehicle due to the cost.

An Ethnically Divided East
Most of Germany is ethnically German, which has been true for hundreds of years. However, the east is ethnically Polish, which causes some protests from the people there who wish to join with the Republic of Poland. This ethnic division also mirrors the political division, with most Germans leaning left and the Polish to the east leaning to the right side of the spectrum.


Fractured Union
Social and political polarization has reached a boiling point. With various states feeling increasingly marginalized in the face of a powerful centralized government in Washington D.C. Calls for reform abound while some whisper of the word secession.

Effect: US states with thatching on the map will disobey or ignore Federal orders. While calls of reform, referendum, or even outright secession may occur.

America, Heck Yeah!
America's strong sense of personal freedoms and heavy military spending still give it a strong private sector bar none with an equally powerful military-industrial complex.

Effect: Stable economic growth and able to recover from recessions rather quickly. However, high deficit spending may prolong certain economic effects if a downturn does occur.

Budgets Overblown
Spending at all levels of government is increasingly out of control, corrupt, or quite frankly inefficient. As time goes on this debt crisis could lead to inflation and weakening of the US Dollar while economic growth may eventually be curtailed if ever to surpass growth by a significant degree.

Effect: High cost of policies and programs.


The Emperor Akihito
While Japan remains culturally and socially cohesive with a strong sense of tradition. The Emperor Akihito is not like his father, Hirohito, and has allowed the Emperorship to be increasingly rendered into a symbolic figurehead. Even more so than his forebears. As such the military establishment and the growing civilian aligned bureaucrats find themselves at odds. Internal strife is rife.

Effect: Government breakdowns and infighting.

A Wounded Samurai
The Empire of Japan's defeat in the Pacific War during World War Two has led to an erosion of past militarism. Despite economic growth the Empire of Japan now lags behind in terms of military power and willingness to engage in overt aggressive action in pursuit of the nations policies.

Effect: Military capped at 250,000 personnel

Population Decline
Japan's population is declining quickly with a sharp decrease in births since the 1990s.

Effect: Japanese population expected to decrease by 1-3% per year.

Tech Giant
Japan's technological industries are innovative and economic powerhouses. Gaining sizable market shares in the Americas and other parts of Asia.

Effect: Economic and budgetary surpluses.


Population Stagnation
The Russian Empire hit hard times between stagnation starting in the 1970s and an even worse recession in the 1990s that saw a severe weakening in Imperial geo-political power. Coupled with rampant social issues and start economic divides between industrial and rural areas. The Russian population growth has slowed to near standstill and if nothing is done, will lead to stagnation and further economic decline.

Effect: Population growth and decline capped between -0.5 to +0.5%

The War in Donbass
Despite a resurgence in Autocratic influence by the monarchy. President Putin has remained at the helm for over twenty years. And while is political acumen his sharp, his policies are often aggressive. Such as ongoing support for the separatist, Pro-Russian, forces in Ukraine. The result of which has led to repercussions among the international community.

Effect: Negative diplomatic ties to Western nations.

The Victorious Bear
The Russian military, embolden by victories in the World Wars, has an inflated budget and size. While production is efficient the military is straddled by top-heavy leadership and less Imperial spending on social economic issues.

Effect: GDP allocation to the military can go no lower than 4%.

Autocracy or Imperial Federation
The Empire is split between a resurgent monarchy and nearly one hundred years of civilian democratically elected government.

Effect: Political infighting in the State Duma.


Political polarization
Just like in other Western countries, political polarization between the right and left has intensified, especially on identity issues.

Effect: Christian and Islamic conservatives have aligned to block legalization of same-sex marriage and LGBT rights.

Economic stagnation
While Greece avoided a catastrophic depression, it has not managed to return to pre-crisis rates of economic growth.

Effect: The government has promised to take steps to accelerate economic growth.

Illegal immigration
Greece, like other Mediterranean countries, faces waves of immigrants and refugees from North Africa and the Middle East.

Effect: The government is trying to stop the migrant flows through a strict border control policy.

Religious Harmony
Greece's efforts to integrate the Muslim minority by granting citizenship rights, forging common bonds through mandatory military service, and ensuring representation in parliament and positions of government have made possible, unlike other states in the region, to maintain religious harmony.

Effect: Muslim minority has increased loyalty to Greek state.


Our Great and Powerful Friend
With our greatest ally of the last 80 years crumbling before our eyes, it's been apparent since 2010 that we need to step up our commitment to our own defence in order to guarantee our security. As such, the Defence budget has skyrocketed to 4.2% from a measly 2% in 2009. As such, investment in other areas such as education and welfare have taken the brunt of the budget blows, while taxes have increased in all tax brackets.

Effect: While GDP allocation to the military remains above 3.5%, economic growth will be capped at 2.4%

The Rising Tide
As Climate Change continues to intensify, strong domestic efforts towards curbing the crisis have been in vain and many of Australia's island territories and states are threatened by rising sea levels, which may soon have truly tangible effects on Australia at large

Effect: Australia is forced to spend at least 1% of its GDP per annum on combating Climate Change.

The Jewel of the Pacific
Once called the "White Trash of Asia" by long-serving Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Kuang Yew, Australia has become a Multicultural melting pot where the force that unites all Australians are the values that they believe in: Egalitarianism, Democracy, Mateship, Freedom and Justice. No longer the Anglo-Celtic Outpost in Asia; Australia stands up as a strong, independent multicultural nation of the Indo-Pacific.

Effect: More effective diplomacy in the Asia-Pacific region than with their old colonial masters and strong ties to the US.


Memory of the Južna Wars: The 90s and the turn of the Millennium have not been kind on country's stability nor general psyche of its citizens. As ever since Tito's death and the fall of communism from within, the Federal Republic in its violent and bloodied transition have faced a ongoing internal struggle to keep itself together as the numerous ethnic nations within it sought to break free, only the Serbian Majority led government have managed to quell these Wars and rebellions for now, but at a great cost to human life and lingering tensions rising up within. This ethnic crisis would need to be resolve before anything else can be dealt with.

Religious Strife
On top of ethnically driven wars, there's the case of the divide between Christians and Sunni Muslims in the country, not helped by violence that had erupted between the two already historically which went hand in hand in the Južna Wars.

A Refugee Highway
As with other countries in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean experiencing the ongoing refugee influx from North Africa and the Middle East, Juzeuropa is little different in experiencing that issue. However what makes it worse is that the country is practically a highway junction where most the refugees needing to get into Northern Europe end up funneling into, causing much issue for not only the government but the locals as well, leading to much complaints, shortages, overcrowding, and even violence.

A Bone to Pick with Hungary
Ever since failing to secure Croatia and Slovenia during the first-half of the 20th Century, the lands have remained a point of contention between the two countries, one that Juzeuropa have continued to brood on and plot over to eventually retake them in the behest of Nationalists and Titoists, having seen the lands as rightfully theres to claim and add to the Federal Republic just as Tito's government of old has done.

Between East and West
Despite having defended its neutrality during the Cold War, Juzeuropa still finds itself in an awkward position between NATO and Russia's spheres into the 21st Century. Seemingly trying to get the best of both worlds in an effort for the two superpowers to bid on their allegiance for, however how sustainable this political tactic can be is questionable, and one that needs a definitive answer for which power the country shall side with eventually.


The Two Centuries of Humiliation
The overall goal of the UCSP: to undo the humiliation of the Unequal Treaties and regain national prestige once again. China must become powerful, China will become powerful. So told for the last 200 years and now, the Chinese people wonder if China could ever become powerful as Hong Kong still remains in British hands.

Effect: Moderately low public confidence in the government's ability to unite China.

The Big Red
China is the most populated country in the world. While it comes with plenty of boons such as a more taxable population, it comes with high poverty, overpopulation in cities, and increase dependency on foreign imports.

Effect: Chinese population increase 4-6% per year.

The Red Dragon Rises
The Chinese Soviet Republic is the third-largest economy in the world thanks to Deng's reforms. By becoming the world's factory, China can exert its own level of soft power onto its neighbors like a planet with orbiting moons.

Effect: Greater political influence in international politics through economic pressure.


Friends with the Bear(?)
Cuba’s relations with Russia have been complicated. Like many other countries, Cuba condemned their illegal annexation of Crimea and don’t like their intervention in Ukraine. However, unlike other countries, they’ve taken little action; they’ve retained Russian diplomats and kept trade with Russia normal.

Effect: Cuba’s relations with Russia are rather cold good lukewarm.

Enemies with the PRC
Fidel Castro had highly condemned the PRC’s actions at Tiananmen Square, which caused Sino-Cuban relations and trade to crumble and cease to exist. Now, more than thirty years later and under a democratic regime, Cuba has still refused to take back the condemnation made by Castro, a condition the Chinese want met to re-establish diplomatic relations.

Effect: Diplomacy and trade with China is almost completely nonexistent.

Hour of Redemption
With Castro long gone, the door to capitalism has been opened in Cuba for the first time in a long time. With the large influx of Western corporations and local Cuban businesses now doing business in Cuba, the economy has largely improved steadily since the collapse of the Castroist regime.

Effect: Cuba’s economy and GDP go brrrr have a steady growth of around 2% a year, allowing Cuba to make more money.

Castro is gone(?)
While Castro is long gone, his legacy has not been forgotten nor forgiven by many foreign countries and even some Cubans at home, much to the dismay of the government.

Effect: Cuba’s reputation takes a -5% hit.


Stability, But Growth?
The Argentine Economy has proven to be stable due to its peg to the dollar. And was able to weather the 2008 Financial Crisis fairly well. However, Argentina's fiscal policy is not conducive to high GDP growth. As long as the economy isn't completely stagnating, the government is not willing to stimulate economic growth beyond what is needed to keep the economy on track. This leaves Argentina in the conundrum of being stellar by Latin American standards on paper, but realistically a basket case compared to other global economies.

Effect: Slow but consistent economic growth, albeit at the cost of faster economic growth and higher returns due to higher risk investments. This makes the economy look like it's stagnating, and also means Argentina can be outperformed at times by other Latin American nations, which fosters resentment at home whenever it happens because of a strong sense of nationalism in Argentina.

Age Takes Its Toll
Due to Argentina's relatively high (by Latin American Standards) level of development, the country boasts an excellent life expectancy. But, this has taken place along with a drop in fertility rates that has hampered Argentina's population growth. While not below replacement rate (yet), the birth rates case concern for demographers. Sure, letting immigrants in solves the issue (and it's not something the population is against), but the greater concern is whether eventually even immigrants won't be sufficient to stem the decline.

Effect: A demographic crisis may be right over the horizon, and Argentina is ill-prepared to deal with it.

One-Party State
The last time a party besides the PJ won the elections was 1988, and even before that, since the days of Juan Peron, the PJ has had a near monolithic grip on power. Most of this can be attributed to a fractured opposition, but needless to say, this quasi one-party system does put an undue burden on Argentina's democratic institutions, with some critics even going as far as to call the PJ's monolithic rule an intermittent Blandidura (soft dictatorship). Not a huge issue in the short term, but it can cause issues in the long run.

Effect: Fosters some resentment towards the government for basically being the same for the last 30+ years.

Neutral to a Fault
Argentine Neutrality is best described as being a copy of Swiss Neutrality, but with an emphasis on bothsidesism when it comes to conflicts. If one side is being supplied by Argentina, the other side will also receive support. And when it comes to mediating conflicts, everything can be broken down to the simple phrase of "Equal Responsibility." While this has garnered Argentina the nickname: The Switzerland of South America, it also has caused Argentina to be viewed somewhat poorly by nations who view supporting both sides as being morally reprehensible.

Effect: Argentina occasionally ends up supporting genocide and human rights violations indirectly by selling weapons to the parties involved. A terrible image on the world stage for a nation supposedly trying to make peace and be neutral.

The Best of Both Worlds
Being a nation of immigrants, Argentina has benefited from immigration immeasurably. The nation's greatest minds were immigrants or children of immigrants, and this has allowed Argentina to become a melting pot of ideas and creativity furthered by successive governments who see the benefit of attracting skilled immigrants to the country. Argentina has had the luxury of picking and choosing the best parts of each culture and implementing them into mainstream culture. It also means Argentina has had many creative minds contributing to the bettering of the nation

Effect: Argentina due to adopting the best aspects of many cultures is the most productive and economically efficient country in Latin America, as well as the most innovative.


A Nation Divided
The Turkish minority and the Greek majority hate each other, and violence is in the streets. The leader of the nation agrees with the Greek insurgencies, which causes relations with Turkey to be extremely shaky

Effect: Turkish relations are terrible, but Greek relationships are great.

Romanian Ties
With trading Romania, and disliking the Socialist Government of Juznaevropa, they are apart of the Romanian Sphere of Influence.

Effect: The free city of Constantinople is part of the Romanian Sphere of Influence

The Gateway to Europe
Due to Constantinople being on the edge of Europe, tourists from Europe and Middle eastern nations visit the city.

Effect: Large Tourism industry.

Russian Influence
Due to them being the home of the Eastern Orthodox Church, Relations with Russia are good, and didn't denounce them for the invasion of Crimea.

Effect: Russian Influence(not ally)

Eastern Orthodox Church Homeland
Due to being the center of the Eastern Orthodox Church, Churches are seen across the nation, while mosques are rare.

Effect: Tourism increases, and Orthodox followers moving to Constantinople.


Imperial Splendor
Vietnam's return to Monarchy has been a large boon to the nation, stability and economic prosperity has made a big come back. This "Imperial splendor" has seen a rebirth in national unity, diplomacy and of course architectural traditionalism.
Effect: Tourism Increased, Monarchies have increased opinion, Morale and nationalism increased

Zaibatsu Question
With Japans help in restoring Vietnamese glory and image came a cost. Japanese conglomerates have influenced our own nation with local version of them, not only do our conglomerates hold significant sway but so do Japans in our own land.
Effect: Actions against Japanese interests and business result in penalties, increased technology development, increased organized crime, Dependence on Japanese military surplus

Nuclear Eunic
The devastation from Nuclear weapons cannot be witnessed again, our constitution forbids it and our population would never accept it's return to the battlefield.
Effect: Severe political penalties for adoption of nuclear weapons, increased cost of nuclear power, Weapons of Mass Destruction banned from military use.

Religious Extremism
Religious violence is common in Nusantara, mainly due to the presence of radical Islamists. Christian extremists are also present in the country.

Perpetual Corruption
Nusantara has long been hit with corruption allegations, especially in regards to the ongoing scandal surrounding Nusantara Development Berhad (NDB). The current government works on solving this problem.

Diplomatic Strategy
Nusantara plays a huge role in international diplomacy, especially through its diplomatic and commercial relations with USA, Europe, India and Australia. As a result, Nusantara is likely to be a great power in regards to diplomacy and economy, despite many internal issues such as corruption and sectarianism.


The War in Donbass
The Ongoing Donbass War curtails much Ukrainian diplomatic efforts on the international stage. While causing unrest and economic hardship at home.

East and West
Ukraine is split along the Dnieper river between Pro-Western and Pro-Ukrainian major on the western half and a significant Pro-Russian population on the eastern half.

Rampant Corruption
Corruption among the Ukrainian government and military is high. Even with top down efforts to eliminate it. The nature of Ukraine's current conflict brings to light the current failings of the Ukrainian system.


The Criminal South
A diverse part of the country (though none of these are permanent citizens) is the southern part of the country, specifically Malmö. The city is divided between gangs, political extremists and is prone to being heavy military police deployment. Following the Immigration Reduction act of 2019 the areas have become only more violent and unstable with often small riots opening up in the city.

The Swedish Revolutionary Organization
A militia which often is responsible for terrorist attacks. In 2020 they were responsible for a spout of attacks in which several military police officials in Malmö and Gothenburg got assassinated by car bombs and sniper attacks.

Svenska enhetsstaten
With the beginning of the Svenska enhetsstaten the country has become more not only nationalistic and monarchist but big. Many Swedes are having kids and raising them in a curriculum teaching national pride, loyalty and devotion to the king.

Ongoing Crisis

The Donbass War
Ukrainian protests erupted and spread like wildfire in 2014 following the imprisonment of popular politicians by the government of Viktor Yanukovych. Along with unpopular policies regarding Ukrainian affairs with the wider European community. Such as becoming financially closer to Russia and an extensive loan bail out due to faltering public finances that would more or less in-debt Ukraine's government for decades to the Russian government. Sparked unrest and strong government reprisals, with no real solution to the social disquiet, led to Pro-Russian separatists seeking to separate Eastern Ukraine, which was primarily Russian speaking, from Kiev. To be either independent or annexed by Russia directly. While the Crimea was annexed by plebiscite with concurrent occupation by 'Little Green Men.'

The Migrant Crisis
Migrants crossing from Africa and the Middle East have arrived in Europe in significant numbers and will continue to do so. How European powers react to this, and the resulting social dilemmas they create, may very well plot the course of their nations for years to come.

History

Following the Great War, people had lost faith in President Woodrow Wilson. Many blamed him for the exceedingly high body count the nation suffered in the great war. The resented him getting the nation involved in a European war. Further believing the late entry and massive arrival of troops to be a massive mistake. Victory felt bittersweet for the American people to say the least. It caused A massive swing in politics against the democratic party following the end of his second term in 1920. As a result Warren Harding proceeded to win the election of 1920 by one of the largest landslides in American history. Carrying 47 states and being only 6 elector votes away from only the second unanimous election in American history. After dying in office, Calvin Coolidge led the nation for five years. When he chose not to seek reelection, Herbert Hoover ran on the Republican ticket, winning two full terms on the back of the republican wave that Wilson had created. Even defeating well liked Democratic Governor of New York Franklin Roosevelt. Although the onset of the Great Depression had begun to takes its toll.

People had enjoyed over a decade of small government and economic growth. But when it collapsed, it collapsed hard and created many movements towards stronger governing bodies to protect the people from such economic devastation. Socialism and Communism began to see small rises in popularity during this time. Leading to a rise in popularity among the democratic party that had begun campaigning on the platform of larger federal powers. Harry Truman a dixiecrat at heart and Harry Wallace a true progressive candidate, battled roughly for control of the democratic party for the 1932 election. Truman edge out a victory and won the presidency. Truman's hard stance policies and willingness to intervene in the second world war were a stark contrast to Wilson's lackadasical policies and were very popular. especially when aided by war propaganda. After the allied victory in WW2 the people swung back to the Democratic party heavily. Truman earned three terms as president before retiring in 1944. Harry Wallace was given Truman's seal of approval to be his successor despite their bitter rivalry years before. His greatest acheivement being part of the formation of NATO. Allowing him to win two elections and serve as president until 1952. In the post war era, one man rose to the top of the list in the public's choice for president. America's newfound love for hard war stances, combined with his popular media presence, and the rising communist threat in Asia, led to Former General Douglas MacArthur to earning the presidency as a democrat. MacArthur as president led many highly interventionist policies in Korea, and laid the groundwork for what would eventually lead to war in vietnam. He was a very "bomb happy" president. Pushing developement of more and more powerful weapons to win wars without needing to capture every city. Many major cities in Korea like Pyongyang were razed by constant bombing efforts in the war effort. The massive bombing campaigns being rather unpopular in the world stage and making the people begin to rethink the interventionist policies the nation had been following. And thus, a democratic reformer, desegregationist, and liberal champion of the people rose up to take the seat of president upon MacArthur's retirment. John F. Kennedy narrowly defeated Richard Nixon in the 1960 election. He served two full terms honorably, managing to desegregate the nation, Leading the America space program towards landing the first man on the moon, institute civil liberties to all peoples, reform American intelligence agencies, Begun the United States Nuclear Arsenal Program or UNSAP, conversion of the Puerto Rican territory into a state, and help facilitate Germany's entrance into NATO.

Kennedy's Vice President, Lyndon Johnson was wildly unpopular. But the Democratic party foolishly thought themselves unbeatable. So when Richard nixon became president in 1968 it shocked many pundits across the nation. Nixon's time in office was short lived and full of scandal. He began intervention in Vietnam within his first 100 days in office. He was a warmonger, and was to date the only president to every use nuclear weapons offensively. Dropping two bombs on Vietnam. One in Haiphong, and one on the capitol city Hanoi. He was caught spying on his political opponents when he ran for reelection in 1972. These things led him to losing the 1972 election to George Mcgovern. Mcgovern served for four years. His only noteworthy achievement being ending the Vietnam war with a nuetral armistice. A highly unpopular outcome led to what became the swing years in politics. the people felt betrayed by Mcgovern as the Vietnam war seemed won thanks to Nixon's use of atomic weapons and strong forceful tactics. And yet Mcgovern simply chose to leave the conflict without demanding anything from the Vietnamese. This generated the basis of the schism between parties in American politics. Going back and forth between republican and democratic presidents every four years. Each administration only serving to undo what the previous admin had done. Leading to 2020, where Charles Horowitz barely succeeded in his campaign. The three decades of devisive division among the political parties has grown greater and greater. people sick of the large federal government, at strife with people demanding more after the 2008 economic recession. Horowitz seen as a moderate candidate that might unite people under the ideals of compromise, has barely even begun his term and is already hated by most of both parties, rather than liked by them.

Organization Membership United Nations, Nato.
Goals Public and Private public; reunification of the people, lowering the national debt, quelling growing racial tensions. Maintaining their place as the dominant world power. Private; Reasserting control and military dominance on the world stage. removing oligarchic powers that have corrupted the federal government.

Nationstates Name: Sao Nova Europa

Nation Name: Kingdom of Greece (Βασίλειο της Ελλάδας)/Greece (Ελλάδα/Ελλάς)
Capital: Athens
Type of Government Constitutional Monarchy

The Head of State is the King. The King is the Commander-in-Chief of the Hellenic Royal Armed Forces and every law and executive order must be signed by him in order to become formalized into law. The King is, though, obliged to sign executive orders and laws and has no veto power, rendering in practice his powers purely ceremonial.

The Kingdom of Greece is unique amongst constitutional monarchies in having a presidential rather than a parliamentary system of government, with a directly elected Head of Government instead of one chosen by the parliament. The Head of Government is the President. The President is elected on a joint ticket with a Vice-President through a two-rounds electoral system; if no candidate wins an outright majority of the popular vote, a second round is held two weeks later between the two candidates who received the most votes. The President is elected to a term of five years. Presidents are limited to two terms.

The President appoints the Prime Minister (without needing approval from the Parliament), the cabinet, directs domestic and foreign policy, can veto legislation (but this can be overruled by a two thirds majority in the Parliament) and can appoint Constitutional Court Judges (who need to be approved by the Parliament). The Vice-President acts as Speaker of the Parliament (though he gets no vote except in a case of a tie). Since 1985, the Vice-President has traditionally been a Muslim.

The Prime Minister acts as liaison between the cabinet and the President, as the President is the one who directs actual policy. The Prime Minister is appointed by the President and can be dismissed by him at will, without needing approval by the Parliament. The Prime Minister heads cabinet meetings and must report once every month to a session of the Parliament to answer questions by lawmakers. Unlike the President, the Prime Minister (being unelected) is usually - but not always - a technocrat.

The Parliament has 400 lawmakers, with elections taking place every three years. Seats are allocated with a system of proportional representation (PR), with voters voting for parties rather than candidates. Since the President is elected directly and does not rely on the approval of the Parliament, this means that on occasion the President may have to coinhabit with a Parliament controlled by the opposition. In such cases, bipartisanship is generally encouraged.

History:

  • 1915: Despite his marriage to the sister of the Kaiser, King Constantine I accepted Prime Minister Venizelos' insistence on joining the Entente Forces in exchange for Britain handing over control of Cyprus to Greece and promises of land concessions in Asia Minor.
  • 1915 - 8: Greece commits forces to the Gallipoli Campaign and to the Balkan Front against Bulgaria, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire.
  • 1920: With the defeat of the Ottoman Empire, the Treaty of Sevres gave Greece a Mandate over Western Anatolia. Greece was also handed over Cyprus, as promised by Britain. While Prime Minister Venizelos wanted a Greek Mandate over Constantinople too, the 'Queen of Cities' was instead handed over to an League of Nations Mandate and occupied by an international force.
  • 1920 - 6: Six bloody years of war followed, as Greece had to face the twin threats of a Nationalist Turkey in the East and Turkish guerillas in its Asian provinces. The Greek army in the 1926 'March to Ankara' captured the Nationalist capital of Ankara and forced the Nationalists into negotiations.
  • 1926: The Treaty of Lausanne delaminated the borders between Greece and Turkey, and acknowledged the annexation of Greek-occupied Anatolia by Greece. It also provided for a population exchange clause, that allowed Greece to accept over 500,000 Greeks and other Christians and expel over 2,000,000 Muslims in one of the largest population movements in world history. Nevertheless, even with this population exchange, a significant number of Muslim Turks remained in Asia Minor.
  • 1928: Prime Minister Venizelos resigns after decades in power due to health concerns. His last act before his resignation was to grant Greek citizenship to the Muslims who remained in Greece. A contested move but one accepted due to the need to integrate those populations and prevent them from becoming a 'fifth column' of Turkey.
  • 1928 - 1936: Successive governments deal with the problems of integrating the Asian provinces to Greece, settling the populations that came to Greece with the population exchange clause and industrializing the country. Those problems were exacerbated by the Great Depression, increased political polarization between conservatives and socialists, and strikes by Marxist trade unions.
  • 1936: After three snap elections fail to produce a government, King George II appoints the former Lieutenant General and leader of the small Nationalist Party Ioannes Metaxas as Prime Minister. Metaxas, inspired by Mussolini and Hitler, in 4th August dissolves the Parliament and declares a 'State of Emergency' citing the danger posed by 'Marxist elements'. The King approves of this self-coup. All political parties are banned, a secret police is established, censorship is imposed and Marxists and Islamists are jailed in 're-education camps' in remote islets.
  • 1936 - 1940: The 4th August Regime promotes industrialization, passes a series of pro-labor laws (such as banning child labor, five-day, 40-hour workweek, unemployment insurance, guaranteed two-week vacations with pay) and promotes the Hellenization of Muslim populations of Asia Minor by mandating that lessons in schools take place in Greek only.
  • 1940-1: Italy issues an ultimatum, demanding the surrender of strategic points within Greek territory. Metaxas refuses and Italy invades. The Greek army repulses the Italians and invades Italian-held Albania. While Mussolini pleads Hitler to aid him, the Fuhrer instead opts to negotiate a ceasefire between Italy and Greece.
  • 1941 - 44: With the Italian invasion repulsed and a ceasefire brokered, Greece returns back to a state of neutrality until 1944, when seeing that the Axis power is losing the war, Metaxas declares war on Germany and Italy. Greek forces take over the Dodecanese Islands, which had been under Italian colonial control since 1912.
  • 1945: Greek control of the Dodecanese Islands is confirmed by international treaty with the end of WWII. Metaxas dies and is succeeded by Generalissimo Alexandros Papagos, hero of the Greco-Italian War.
  • 1945 - 1956: Papagos continues the policies of Metaxas. He seeks rapid industrialization through large-scale public investments and devaluing the drachma. He also keeps in place the restrictions on civil liberties placed by the Metaxas regime while intensifying the Hellenization of the Muslim populations of Asia Minor. Greece aligns with the West and joins NATO in 1955.
  • 1956 - 1966: Konstantinos Karamanlis, Minister of Infrastructure under Papagos, becomes Prime Minister after the death of Papagos in 1956. Under his premiership, Greece experiences an average growth rate of 7% per year, behind only Japan. This was dubbed the 'Greek Economic Miracle' and saw the creation of a broad middle class. But this middle class also began to demand civil liberties and participation in the political process.
  • 1967: Karamanlis, being more moderate than his predecessors, understood that the regime needed to liberalize in order to survive. In 1967, he implemented a series of reforms such as relaxing censorship, scaling back the powers of the secret police and releasing a number of political prisoners. This led to fear amongst hardline military officers that the regime would collapse, leading to a coup in 21 April 1967 by a group of Colonels.
  • 1967 - 1970: The Colonels' Regime, led by Georgios Papadopoulos, reimposes strict censorship and expands the powers of the secret police. In 1970, a student uprising against the Junta was brutally put down with tens of students murdered. The public uproar led to further protests, by workers, students and simple civilians. The King, Constantine II, in a rare public statement condemned the regime. When Papadopoulos tried to topple the King, many military units refused to follow the commands of the Junta leader and instead mutinied, declaring their loyalty to the crown. Faced with the prospect of a civil war, Papadopoulos announced his resignation.
  • 1970: Konstantinos Karamanlis, who had fled to Paris after the military coup of 1967, returns to Athens and leads the provisional government. A new constitution is drafted that replaces the parliamentary system with a presidential one. In the first free elections since 1936, Karamanlis is elected President in the first round with 71% of the vote. His party, New Democracy, scores an equally impressive 57% in the parliamentary elections, providing Karamanlis with a comfortable majority in the Parliament too.
  • 1970 - 1980: In his two terms as President, Karamanlis nationalizes a number of industries (mainly in the oil and shipping sector). He abolishes the secret police, promotes political participation by the Muslim minority (appointed four Muslim Ministers, among them the Minister of Public Administration) and increases the minimum wage.
  • 1980 - 1990: Andreas Papandreou, the charismatic leader of the Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK), wins the presidential elections of 1980 and 1985. His government legalizes abortion, divorce and civil marriage while instituting the Greek National Healthcare System, making higher public education free of any charge and raising pensions and unemployment subsidies.
  • 1990 - 2000: Konstantinos Mitsotakis, leader of New Democracy, wins the presidential elections of 1990 and 1995. His party in parliament aligns with the Islamic Liberty Party, the first non-leftist Muslim party to win parliamentary representation. In the past, the Muslims would vote for the left, but under the influence of Islamic revivalism, the once minor Islamic Liberty Party managed to capture a large part of the Muslim vote. Mitsotakis liberalizes the economy by cutting taxes, reducing public spending, deregulating the economy and privatizing a number of state assets.
  • 2000 - 2010: Kostas Simitis, leader of PASOK, wins the presidential elections of 2000 and 2005. Unlike Andreas Papandreou, Simitis belonged to the 'modernizing wing' of PASOK, which tried to strike a middle road between economic liberalism and social democracy. Simitis raised the minimum wage and increased public spending on education and healthcare, but did not reverse Mitsotakis' economic liberalization. Instead, he further liberalized the market and privatized even more state assets.
  • 2010 - 2015: Due to low debt and liberal economic reforms instituted in the past two decades, the economic crisis was not as severe as in RL. Nevertheless, the crisis led to recession in 2010 and 2011. George Papandreou, son of Andreas and PASOK candidate, won the presidential elections of 2010 and managed to return Greece to growth through mild austerity, but this made him unpopular among left-wing voters.
  • 2015 - 2020: In 2015, Antonis Samaras of New Democracy won the presidential elections and in the same year's parliamentary elections, New Democracy gained the plurality of the votes. As President, he instituted a 15% corporate flat tax instead of the 25% he inherited, increased military spending and ordered the coast guard to implement a policy of zero tolerance on illegal immigration coming from North Africa, pushing back migrant boats.
  • 2020 - Present: Samaras became the first President to voluntary decline a second term, due to health issues. Instead, Kyriakos Mitsotakis became the presidential candidate of New Democracy. On a platform of further tax cuts, digitization of the public sector, bolstering border control and strong economic growth, he won the 2020 presidential elections.

Nationstates Name: Sao Nova Europa

Nation Name: Kingdom of Greece (Βασίλειο της Ελλάδας)/Greece (Ελλάδα/Ελλάς)
Capital: Athens
Type of Government Constitutional Monarchy

The Head of State is the King. The King is the Commander-in-Chief of the Hellenic Royal Armed Forces and every law and executive order must be signed by him in order to become formalized into law. The King is, though, obliged to sign executive orders and laws and has no veto power, rendering in practice his powers purely ceremonial.

The Kingdom of Greece is unique amongst constitutional monarchies in having a presidential rather than a parliamentary system of government, with a directly elected Head of Government instead of one chosen by the parliament. The Head of Government is the President. The President is elected on a joint ticket with a Vice-President through a two-rounds electoral system; if no candidate wins an outright majority of the popular vote, a second round is held two weeks later between the two candidates who received the most votes. The President is elected to a term of five years. Presidents are limited to two terms.

The President appoints the Prime Minister (without needing approval from the Parliament), the cabinet, directs domestic and foreign policy, can veto legislation (but this can be overruled by a two thirds majority in the Parliament) and can appoint Constitutional Court Judges (who need to be approved by the Parliament). The Vice-President acts as Speaker of the Parliament (though he gets no vote except in a case of a tie). Since 1985, the Vice-President has traditionally been a Muslim.

The Prime Minister acts as liaison between the cabinet and the President, as the President is the one who directs actual policy. The Prime Minister is appointed by the President and can be dismissed by him at will, without needing approval by the Parliament. The Prime Minister heads cabinet meetings and must report once every month to a session of the Parliament to answer questions by lawmakers. Unlike the President, the Prime Minister (being unelected) is usually - but not always - a technocrat.

The Parliament has 400 lawmakers, with elections taking place every three years. Seats are allocated with a system of proportional representation (PR), with voters voting for parties rather than candidates. Since the President is elected directly and does not rely on the approval of the Parliament, this means that on occasion the President may have to coinhabit with a Parliament controlled by the opposition. In such cases, bipartisanship is generally encouraged.

History

Following the Great War, people had lost faith in President Woodrow Wilson. Many blamed him for the exceedingly high body count the nation suffered in the great war. The resented him getting the nation involved in a European war. Further believing the late entry and massive arrival of troops to be a massive mistake. Victory felt bittersweet for the American people to say the least. It caused A massive swing in politics against the democratic party following the end of his second term in 1920. As a result Warren Harding proceeded to win the election of 1920 by one of the largest landslides in American history. Carrying 47 states and being only 6 elector votes away from only the second unanimous election in American history. After dying in office, Calvin Coolidge led the nation for five years. When he chose not to seek reelection, Herbert Hoover ran on the Republican ticket, winning two full terms on the back of the republican wave that Wilson had created. Even defeating well liked Democratic Governor of New York Franklin Roosevelt. Although the onset of the Great Depression had begun to takes its toll.

People had enjoyed over a decade of small government and economic growth. But when it collapsed, it collapsed hard and created many movements towards stronger governing bodies to protect the people from such economic devastation. Socialism and Communism began to see small rises in popularity during this time. Leading to a rise in popularity among the democratic party that had begun campaigning on the platform of larger federal powers. Harry Truman a dixiecrat at heart and Harry Wallace a true progressive candidate, battled roughly for control of the democratic party for the 1932 election. Truman edge out a victory and won the presidency. Truman's hard stance policies and willingness to intervene in the second world war were a stark contrast to Wilson's lackadasical policies and were very popular. especially when aided by war propaganda. After the allied victory in WW2 the people swung back to the Democratic party heavily. Truman earned three terms as president before retiring in 1944. Harry Wallace was given Truman's seal of approval to be his successor despite their bitter rivalry years before. His greatest acheivement being part of the formation of NATO. Allowing him to win two elections and serve as president until 1952. In the post war era, one man rose to the top of the list in the public's choice for president. America's newfound love for hard war stances, combined with his popular media presence, and the rising communist threat in Asia, led to Former General Douglas MacArthur to earning the presidency as a democrat. MacArthur as president led many highly interventionist policies in Korea, and laid the groundwork for what would eventually lead to war in vietnam. He was a very "bomb happy" president. Pushing developement of more and more powerful weapons to win wars without needing to capture every city. Many major cities in Korea like Pyongyang were razed by constant bombing efforts in the war effort. The massive bombing campaigns being rather unpopular in the world stage and making the people begin to rethink the interventionist policies the nation had been following. And thus, a democratic reformer, desegregationist, and liberal champion of the people rose up to take the seat of president upon MacArthur's retirment. John F. Kennedy narrowly defeated Richard Nixon in the 1960 election. He served two full terms honorably, managing to desegregate the nation, Leading the America space program towards landing the first man on the moon, institute civil liberties to all peoples, reform American intelligence agencies, Begun the United States Nuclear Arsenal Program or UNSAP, and help facilitate Germany's entrance into NATO.

Kennedy's Vice President, Lyndon Johnson was wildly unpopular. But the Democratic party foolishly thought themselves unbeatable. So when Richard nixon became president in 1968 it shocked many pundits across the nation. Nixon's time in office was short lived and full of scandal. He began intervention in Vietnam within his first 100 days in office. He was a warmonger, and was to date the only president to every use nuclear weapons offensively. Dropping two bombs on Vietnam. One in Haiphong, and one on the capitol city Hanoi. He was caught spying on his political opponents when he ran for reelection in 1972. These things led him to losing the 1972 election to George Mcgovern. Mcgovern served for four years. His only noteworthy achievement being ending the Vietnam war with a nuetral armistice. A highly unpopular outcome led to what became the swing years in politics. the people felt betrayed by Mcgovern as the Vietnam war seemed won thanks to Nixon's use of atomic weapons and strong forceful tactics. And yet Mcgovern simply chose to leave the conflict without demanding anything from the Vietnamese. This generated the basis of the schism between parties in American politics. Going back and forth between republican and democratic presidents every four years. Each administration only serving to undo what the previous admin had done. Leading to 2020, where Charles Horowitz barely succeeded in his campaign. The three decades of devisive division among the political parties has grown greater and greater. people sick of the large federal government, at strife with people demanding more after the 2008 economic recession. Horowitz seen as a moderate candidate that might unite people under the ideals of compromise, has barely even begun his term and is already hated by most of both parties, rather than liked by them.

I’m interested in playing as Iran, but one where the Mossadeq government was not overthrown in a US-backed coup, mainly because the Cold War was not along ideological lines. A strong voice for the non-aligned and former colonial nations in the world.

Would it be ok to be a democratic Cuba, where the 1994 Maleconazo ends up going way worse and sends Cuba into civil war, with Castro’s communists being defeated by NATO-supported democratic rebels?

Yes, no problem with that. Essentially since there wasn’t a Marxist-Leninist revolution in Russia the formulation of Communism isn’t as strong nor close to how it would be in our timeline. So feel free to get a bit creative on how that went down.

I'd be interested in playing Japan, but one thing I noticed is the military cap is very low. I understand this isn't a war RP, but from what I can see war is allowed?

The cap currently is smaller than the current JSDF at over 300,000 and IRL Taiwan at 170,000. In that state Japan would not be able to maintain such overseas territories as seen on the map let alone be able to defend most of Japan.

From what I can see, there isn't a provision like Article 9 in place, so would Japan's peak strength in the IRL Russo-Japanese War of 650,000 be allowed?

Warfare is allowed. Just its treated in a much more grounded and realistic fashion.

I would be willing to increase to the IRL JSDF size of 247,000. But anything higher wouldn't really be sensible given the timeline and the effects of the extremely costly defeat during World War 2, and the resulting social changes that occurred.

You can of course begin a process of expanding the Japanese military.

That sounds fair enough.

I guess I had misunderstood, I thought it was a cap meaning that number couldn't be surpassed. But otherwise I think I will get started on an application.

My two questions would be if I could have the Japanese overseas territories have their own puppet governments and their own small armies (enough at least to account for the 56,000 reservists IRL Japan has in addition to its active forces)? And if I could still have the Imperial conscription system still allowed, even if not in practice?

Yeah, Everyone's initial ME's are basically to provide initial starting situations.

Yes, to both of those.

Hmm, I'm quite interested in the concept, if I were to app I might do a sorta Balkan Federation type of deal with what's left in Southern Europe.
