This won't exactly be a sort of sequel to Kaiserreich. Some things, like the Scottish regency, won't happen in the base game. People are mostly allowed to make up their nations lore and leadership starting from the 1936 start date, unless specified otherwise in the info for the continents, influencing the lore of nations which don't have theirs established yet(for example, when describing Japan's situation players can't say what China's is) or being completely unrealistic like August Wilhelm leading Mongolia or Franco staging a coup in Bulgaria.


The Rising Tensions

In the beginning of 1936, the World was a peaceful place. The German Kaiserreich stood as the sole superpower. It's enemies, Russia and the Third Internationale, were broken by the Erste Weltkrieg, and the other countries which antagonized it, such as the Entente or Japanese, were far away from the mainland. Kaiser Wilhelm II had, at that point, mostly retired, and let the Chancellor(who was at that point practically appointed by the Reichstag) to rule. Their citizens were rich, uninhibited by the economic struggles of the United States of America. Their puppets and colonies were compliant. Everything was so great, some suggested that in a hundred years, the whole world would be German.

Everything changed, however, on February 3rd. That day, the Berlin stock exchange plummeted, sending the German Empire into chaos. The German Empire was thrown into disarray. Its Indochinese colony rebelled, beginning the Indochinese war and leaving the colony vulnerable to the Japanese. Hermann von Goering's embezzlements grew in size, before it came to light, resulting in Goering being fired and fleeing to Brazil, with Rudolf Asmis, the new Statthalter, beginning his attempts to pacify the nation. America was hurled into a four-way civil war, which lasted until 1939. China balkanized more, and fought itself for the next two years. The Spanish fell into a civil war. Egypt and its allies fought the Ottomans. The Fourth French Republic in Algeria threw of Petain, and became led by De La Rocque. And worst of all for the Germans, Russia and the Third Internationale, unaffected by the crisis, threw off democracy firmly(except the Italians), becoming authoritarian states, in particularly Britain.

The Deluge

Regardless, the Reich was somewhat recovering in 1939. The economy was on a road to recovery under the new Chancellor(appointed by the emperor but approved by the Reichstag and Bundesrat, due to the 1936 Kanzlergesetz amendment), the revolts in their puppets and colonies were more or less quashed, and Japans invasion of China was not feared. However, on July 23rd, 1939, an ultimatum was sent, from the Commune of France, demanding Alsace Lorraine. This was after they were allowed to devour a good chunk of Switzerland. The Kaiser rejected the demand, resulting in a French declaration of war. Russia jumped in, however, surprising Germany, who didn't expect them to do it so soon. The Second Weltkrieg had begun.

For the first two years, Germany held the French, slowly retreated from the Russians(besides the minor victory over the Lithuanians in the beginning), and abandoned East Asia, where Hellmuth von Mücke, all alone, held on to whatever land he good with whatever resources he had. Australasia helping the Third Internationale made things even worse. Ireland was invaded as well, being occupied and loosing the North. Its government in exile was assassinated in 1942 by Mosley's spies. The Austrians, the Italian Republic, and the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies did join, but in the beginning, they simply protracted the Italian war. Only when the Entente joined did the war begin turning in favor of the Reichspakt, creating a partnership which was eventually christened the European Coalition. Even then, however, the war in Italy barely moved until 1944, and the Canadians were invaded in 1943 by the Union of Socialist States of America, which had mostly finished reconstruction, with the Germans being powerless to stop the Americans and the National French making peace following Edward's flight and Prime Minister Mackenzie King's capitulation.

In 1944, however, after the National French held onto whatever ports they could over the two years since the first naval landing, and the Germans reaching Paris for the third time in under a century, the Commune of France capitulated, followed by the Italians. Mosley held out, offering peace(which made sense, given the old British monarchy was almost certainly not going to be restored at this point) but the Reichspakt and remaining Entente members cried for blood. Britain was invaded in the largest naval operation in history, with 300,000 troops from both sides. After a million more lives lost by Mosley's Scorched Earth policy and his troops fanatical resistance, London fell on September 2nd. Mosley had fled, but his journal was found, as well as plans to eventually lock down Britain from the outside world, with enough cameras being made in 1943 and early 1944 to place on a third of Britains streets. Scotland declared independence, and Wales followed suit. England's legislature capitulated soon after.

The Russians were being pushed back, by the Germans and the Russian Free Army, which rose up near the start of the war. On October 2nd, the Reichspakt and Co-Prosperity Sphere signed a peace deal, where Germany let Japan and Thailand "occupy" most of their colonies, which Japan turned into puppets or annexed a few days after the deal became effective. A similar deal was signed with the Australasian Union, except this time Germany occupied and later annexed their lands, following Mücke's successful defense of New Guinea. Savinkov surrendered unconditionally on October 25th. Russia's central asian occupation ended as Iran quickly occupied a few border provinces and the Emirate of Bukhara, Khanate of Khiva, Turkestan Republic, and Alash Orda declared their independence. The Russian people rose up, bitter at the government, and the Germans recognized Boldyrev as rightful ruler on November 20th after he entered Petrograd, with the Second Russian Republic being declared. The Second Weltkrieg was truly over.

The Rules

1. Begin your lore of from 1936, and go from there. People that follow ideologies which never became popular in Kaiserreich, like Trotskyism, Nazism, and seemingly Technocracy, are fine, but having them , or anyone with little to no sources on them, in power at game start(unless it can happen in Kaiserreich) is pretty impossible. After start, however, it will occasionally become a possibility.

2. When fighting wars, only decide the outcome of non-decisive battles. Offensives and major battles will be decided in news reports.

3. Unless a nations government and leader have been specified at start, you can have your head of state and government be whoever you want, as long as it's realistic. However, it can't influence other nations leaders, ideology, or foreign policy, unless they're defunct or unless stated in Kaiserreich (i.e. Germany influences Wales' starting ideology if it released the Welsh), it has to be a nation on the map(recommended nations are just the ones where it would likely be easy too find lore and play), and I decide whether it is realistic. But...

4. If you see anything you consider unrealistic in my reports on player actions or lore, tell me, so I can look over it and change it to be something that can actually happen. If I don't, feel free to start a discussion in the telegrams. Speaking of the reports...

5. Time in IC game is one real is one in-game week. Every two days in the IC, there will be a "news report" summarizing player actions alongside their results, weather(which will play into troop mobility depending on the circumstance), and one or two bits of miscellaneous stuff NPC nations are doing.

6. Be realistic in playing as well. No coups with no built up, with few participants, with inexperienced participants, and/or in stable nations. Take time justifying wars and preparing for them. To increase message encryption or break high encryption, it will take time and a small bit of resources. Do not try to end the whole war from beginning to end in one offensive unless it's been planned out for a few turns and/or it's a smaller country than you, and definitely not one battle unless it's Bhutan or something similar. Don't go to war all the time unless your leader is an explicitly stated warhawk with near unlimited support and/or power. I will tell you if I feel something is or may be unrealistic.

7. You can tell your nations actions in anyway you like. Leaders talking, newspaper articles, speeches, news stories, ordinary citizens experiencing and reaction to them, short bits, or a mix.

8. No insulting other real life players in the OOC. In-universe leaders insulting the actions the actions of other In-universe leaders and gods is fine.

9. No godmodding or metagaming.

10. If you see any mistakes on the map, bias in my judgement, unfairness in my rules(which are subject to change), spelling mistakes in the lore, or you feel I should include new rules, tell me.

11. I'll probably have Co-OPs, who will help in enforcing the rules.

12. You decide the affairs of your nations internal politicians, like governors or princes in Germany's and Somalia's cases, along with your ministers.

13. Reservations last two weeks. You get them by asking.

14. Anyone who is inactive for a month from the implementation of this rule on August 11th, or when they joined, will be warned and be removed from the RP if they want to or if they continue to be inactive two weeks after. Their nation and it's lore become open.

15. Not a rule, but it is recommended you check to see if your nation appeared in news reports(last spoiler) before applying, and if it did, what happened.


And with that said...

The Present

Following their victory in 1939, the Combined Syndicates of America elected Earl Browder as President. Immediately, Browder set back nearly all the progress of the Syndicalist cause to zero, instead welcoming the ideology of Lenin, mixed with his own ideals. The government took complete control of the economy, rapidly rebuilt the country, and instituted food controls and redistribution from the old capitalists(most of which fled the country) to others. Dissidents were shipped off to forced labor camps(those that hadn't escaped, at least) in order to better repair the country, and unions were reduced to negligible power. Eventually, Browder invaded Canada and Mexico after the end of the First Three Year Plan, and began the Second Three-Year Plan, aimed at the full reconstruction of the army, restructuring of education, and integration of the Guyanese Provinces alongside the Canadian Ones, in October 1944. The President is currently touring the recently conquered Mexico alongside the Guyanese Provinces, having finished touring Canada. He is assisted by multiple members in his administration. Jay Lovestone is a reformer, wishing to reintroduce trade unions to power and have a detente with the Germans and/or the Japanese, serves as minister of transportation. James P. Cannon, the Minister of Health and Services, is representative of the Trotskyists, advocating eternal revolution, echoing the ideals of the dead Russian Revolutionary. However, he seems exceptionally close to his deputy, Martin Abern, who many believe is his master. The other powerful member is the head of the Secret Service, enigmatic party hardliner Alexander Stevens, who has proven to be a great protege of Browder.

Elsewhere in the Americas, the old nations still stand...for the most part. War was barely averted between Brazil and Argentina. However, some of them have already started falling to the American sphere, including Cuba, ruled by Tina Modotti, though she has spent most of that time killing anyone mildly associated with Julio Mella's death. The rest will have to pick between Japan and the European Coalition, lest they fall to the American sphere as well. So far, the only one to have leaned one way or another is Argentina, picking the Germans as their allies.

Recommended Nations:
-Union of Socialist States of America
-Mexico
-People's Republic of Cuba
-Brazil
-Argentina


In Eastern Europe, the German Empire has mostly stabilized their land there. The Poles have let go of revanchism for the most part, and accepted the fact they at the very least are nominally independent. White Ruthenia has become stabilized, emboldened by the reception of new lands. The United Baltic Duchy has been stabilized, but choose to continue Germanization to one day be part of the German Empire, which has angered the local population and is divisive both within the state and the German government. Ukraine has become stabilized, but remaining citizens militias(units formed by Savinkov in the final stages of the war), renegade Russian soldiers, and even a few dozen lost troops of the Free Russian Army pillage the Eastern provinces. This is for now only a local problem, and it would take a huge disaster to turn these partisans into all out revolts with hard control of their land, and an even bigger disaster for the Ukrainian government to fall. The only truly unstable region is Lithuania. Punished for the National Populist rebellion in 1939, it lost land to Belarus and Poland, with the King also loosing his throne due to his reluctance to rule and failure to suppress the revolt, leading Lithuania to be a military dictatorship.

The German Empire itself is led by Kaiser Wilhelm III. Prior to the Second Weltkrieg, the Kaiserreich was technically ruled by the Chancellor and Reichstag. Wilhelm III, however, was far more authoritarian than his father, and after publishing the Enabling Act of 1942, suspending all elections until the war ended and allowing the government censorship abilities, his relation with the Chancellor cooled. Whether the Empire will be dominated by the Emperor of Chancellor, alongside with the possibility another force takes control, remains to be seen, in addition to the fact that there is debate on whether to hold election now or in the designated year of 1947, which given normal circumstances would be the election year. Also, the German scientists in Sudwestafrika are in the final stages of testing a huge weapon that will change the way war is waged...

In western Europe, France has become a Republic-at least officially. In reality, Francois De La Rocque is the dictator, even though he is considering whether to wait until the communards are dealt with or restore democracy now. De La Rocque, however, is sick, his years in Algeria and a botched surgery having worn him down. Time will tell whether his health will improve, for if it doesn't, dire consequences await the French Republic. Regardless, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Flanders-Wallonia, and Portugal are all allied to the German Empire and are considering a full time alliance through a "European Coalition", though Portugal is only reluctantly allied due to Mittelafrika taking significant land from their colonies.

In the British Isles, the German rule is weak. England is ruled by Charles III, who is also Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, with Anthony Ludovici as his Prime Minister. The two men mesh well, given they both have reactionary ideals, causing much division in British society. Several British exiles moved back to England, and have begun recognizing Charles' reign.

To the North lies Scotland. While originally, the Germans planned to put Duke Franz of Bavaria on the throne, the Act of Settlement also applied to Scotland, causing a regency council to be made by the provisional government to decide whether to repeal the act or not. The Council got bogged down over the last few months, with many considering alternative candidates to the throne People opposed to restoring the disgraced House of Windsor(currently exiled in Brazil) while wanting to retain the part of the act of settlement which prohibits Catholics have suggested John Osborne, 11th Duke of Leeds. Those who want to repeal the act have considered Rupprecht of Bavaria or his brother Franz, this faction generally being made of semi-constitutionalists, with the more quasi-absolutist elements suggesting Maria Amelia, former Queen consort of Portugal, though this would result in an eventual personal union with Sardinia-Piedmont, and the more constitutionalist members proposing Edward Stanley, 17th Earl of Derby, who, in addition to being descended from King James II of Scotland, is also grandson of the three time British Prime Minister Edward Smith-Stanley. Various minor candidates have also been proposed. Wales, however, was left a republic.

Regardless, all the British nations are unstable, as Mosley's former spy network and secret police have mostly refused to surrender and still prowl Britain, causing havoc. In Ireland, the remains of the Irish Socialist Republic set up by Mosley also prowl and occasionally cause car bombing. Scotland and England also are starting to develop a rivalry, Scotlands relatively liberal nature contrasting with England's reactionary ideals, and it is clear they will compete for German approval in the coming years.

In Scandinavia, Norway has abolished the monarchy in 1937 and became the Norwegian Union, a republic currently led by the relatively moderate Einar Gerhardsen. Following the Internationale's fall into totalism, Norway declared it would not associate with it any longer, only maintaining positive relations with Italy. Norway began a policy of self-reliance, only maintaining trade with South America, Ethiopia, and a few Asian nations. Sweden, Denmark, and Finland are firm Reichspakt allies.

In the Balkans and surrounding areas, the Austro-Hungarian Empire is no more, having been replaced by the United States of Greater Austria, which has stabilized its inner borders. The ethnicities are for the most part happy, besides the Hungarians, who were forcefully integrated. To its South lie Serbia and Romania. They, along with Greece, had lost to the Bulgarians, and barely avoided becoming puppets. Serbia's new republic was shaken into disarray, Carol launched a coup in Romania and became an autocrat ruling by decree, and Greece fell to totalism, hiding a few surviving leaders of France, though most British politicians didn't flee there. Bulgaria, meanwhile, has prospered. After pursuing hard industrialization practices, Bulgaria began sending huge amounts of aid to first the Germans, then the Third Internationale, and then both in their war, as well as other conflicts worldwide. Bulgaria's playing of both sides is believed to have helped in extending the Weltkrieg, though for now no one bothered with the question. During the war, Bulgaria finished its industrialization, and near fully ended its reliance on agrarianism. Despite this, the country is neutral, and willing to reach out to Japan, Germany, France, America, and anyone in between to further its wealth.

Italy has remained divided despite victory, and the other European powers haven't helped, as Austria, Germany, and France by excluding them from the Reichspakt and talks of the European Coalition. The Italian Republic has mostly stabilized itself, and Balbo's National Populist movement is a fringe minority. The Two Sicilies is also stable. Sardinia-Piedmont, Tuscany, and the Papal States are still plagued by a huge variety of totalist partisans, not helped by the fact moderate syndicalists and socialists have moved to the Italian Republic. The House of Savoy still lives in Sardinia, but is preparing to move as the partisan activity begins slowing down. Amedeo has not commented on the situation in Scotland, but stated that if his Aunt was chosen as Queen he would accept it and send his daughter to study in Scotland for when she would take its throne.

Recommended Nations:
-German Empire
-Fourth French Republic
-United States of Greater Austria
-Kingdom of England
-Kingdom of Scotland
-Ireland
-Sardinia-Piedmont
-Two Sicilies
-Italian Republic
-Bulgaria
-Serbia


Russia is left in tatters by the war. It lost 20 million men and civilians to fighting, bombings, starvation, and disease. Boldyrev's promise of a better, democratic Russia has been received apathetically by Russia's citizens, most of whom have given up hope for a brighter future. For the few who haven't, the current candidates for Russia's president are Boldyrev's Russian Unity Party, the Menshevik Party led by Irakli Tsereteli alongside Alexander Shlyapnikov, and Vladimir Nabokov's Constitutional Monarchist Kadets, who are also against a full alliance with Germany and in support of lukewarm relations. Some dark horse candidates have been proposed, such as Pyotr Krasnov's Rejuvenation League, proposing to put a German monarch on the throne, and even Alexander Kerensky within the Mensheviks, who's viewed slightly more fondly, though these two almost certainly won't win.

To Russia's south is Germany's other unstable ally-the Mountain Republic. Due to it being made simply to weaken Russia, while being in territory loyal to Boldyrev, many there want to rejoin Russia. Local minorities regularly attack pro-Russian demonstrators, and the legislature is polarized as much by ethnicity as it is ideology. The Republic hopes for a bright future, but at this point it's looking like it will have no future at all.

In Central Asia, some of Germany's farthest allies exist. These are the Alash Orda, the Turkestan Republic, the Khanate of Khiva, and the Emirate of Bukhara. The only stable one is Turkestan, however, with the Alash Orda plagued by the Russian minority settled during Savinkov's rule, and the monarchies having to grapple with constitutionalization to avoid overthrow.

In the Far East, lie two of Russia's unknown enemies-Mongolia and the Far Eastern Republic. Mongolia is ruled by Nikolai Berzarin, head of the Russian occupation authority there, and also holds the remnants of the National Populist Duma that escaped there. Berzarin, however, has to decide whether to try the hopeless task of retaking Russia while having two cities to rely on, to crown the 9th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu as a puppet, or to simply pretend this isn't a problem and continue Russian domination. In the Far Eastern Republic, Semyonov has established his small domain. Recently some refugees from Russia, alongside the former Regent of Mongolia, Baron Roman von Ungern Sternberg, who had been missing for years, came, and provided him with more men and military members. While he is focused on reconstruction and integration for now, Semyonov will have to decide whether to try his luck with Diterikhs' Monarchist Circle of St. George by firmly allying with them, or fully submit his influence to Japan.

Recommended Nations:
-Russian Republic
-Mountain Republic
-Alash Orda
-Far Eastern Republic


Within Asia, Japan reigns supreme. They have attained near total hegemony of China, secured the former colonies of Germany, annexed Indonesia and Malaysia, and now are beginning to peek under the table to see what Germany is doing with all the uranium in Sudwestafrika, hoping to use whatever deposits China has to their advantage. The Emperor, while a god in the eyes of the people, is a figurehead, with the Prime Minister doing most of the work when it comes to ruling.

In China, the unification wars are nearly over. The last remnants of resistance to the pro-Japanese government hide in the ma clique, who have also taken in Yan Xishan and other warlords. While the Ma hold the line for now, one final offensive will be all that is needed to finally bring them down, and after that likely invade the Kumul Khanate, which also hosts a lot of uranium supplies. The Kumul Khanate and Tibet have both considered joining the Reichspakt to protect themselves, though they understand they will have to compete for German favor between each other.

In India, the shackles of Imperialism are gone. The British were defeated in 1944 after Edward had already fled to the Delhi government, and India stands united. A democracy has taken root, and India is considering an alliance with the Co-Prosperity Sphere, despite their aversion to Japans overly imperialistic tendencies and veneration of their Emperor. Nonetheless, conflict is not over on the Indian subcontinent. Both India and Pakistant claim land that has the others religious and ethnic residents inhabit, and unless a major power mediates an agreement, war is imminent. India would also likely get attacked by Nepal in the process, or attack it.

Siam dominates most of South East Asia, if only as Japan's junior partner. They have puppeted Burma and seized the remaining Cambodian and Laotian lands of German Indochina. Speaking of Indochina, Vietnam is a puppet of Japan, the later keeping Cochinchina as a sort of watchman base over East Asia.

In the Middle East, the Ottomans have crushed their enemies, rejuvenated their economy, became a massive oil producer, and have total control over movement through the Suez Canal and Persian Gulf. The Empire, like Bulgaria, has modernized, and despite it demanding West Thrace, the two empires have repaired relations to somewhat cordial levels, and the Ottomans, like the Bulgarians, sold oil off to both sides of the Second Weltkrieg. Despite this, the Ottomans are in firm opposition to the Americans, and have yet to decide whether to remain neutral, or join one of the other three factions. Their puppets, consisting of Persia, Egypt, Arabia, and Oman, are all stable, with Egypt only experiencing minor disturbances by republicans and Faruqists, who have organized themselves into a group of clubs dedicated to restoring Farouk, except unlike most pretenders they are somewhat more liberal than the current ruling family.

Recommended Nations:
-Empire of Japan
-China
-India
-Pakistan
-Vietnam
-Tibet
-Ottomans
-Persia


In Australasia, totalism is on a tightrope. J.B. Lewis and the Maximists have been blamed for political repression, a broken economy, and sending thousands of troops to die to unnecessarily expand a territory(which some have called colonialism). The Americans send aid for now, but should the USAS get tired or otherwise stop sending aid, and if the government continues to fail, either a syndicalist, republican(though most of the republicans are authoritarian nationalists), native activists, New Zealand-centered royalists, or any minor faction may attempt to gain power.

To Australasia's North lie the last remnant of German East Asia. Admiral Hellmuth von Mücke, or at least, a man who claims to be Mücke, leads the colony. During his defense of Indochina and the other colonies, something changed in the admiral. Maybe it was the courage of the natives, guilt over his exploitation of them, stress from the war, or pragmatism that went to far, but Mücke has begun advocating causes seen as radical by colonialists, ranging from gradual decolonization and equal voting rights to universal healthcare for all. But even if Mücke is also strangely optimistic, enemies plot against him both in Berlin and at home. He has considered ditching his job and going to Mittelafrika to promote change there while remaining safe, or perhaps stay and work on easing the lives of the few thousand exiles Vietnamese troops and Kaiser-Wilhelmsland residents until the Germans give them independence.

Hawaii is also independent. It has averted American encroachment when it defeated a fleet sent in 1942, causing the USSA much embarrassment. The nation hasn't decided whether to ally Germany, Japan, or go its own way.

Recommended Nations:
-Australasian Union
-German East Asia
-Hawaii


As its colonial powers changed, so has Africa, though the changes have mostly been internal. On the external side, Ethiopia has been annexed by Somalia, which became a German style empire and annexed the Ethiopian puppet state eventually. They have found an alliance with the Ottomans.

The other major expansion was by Mittelafrika, which annexed Lunda Norte, Lunda Sul, Moxico, and Cuando Cubango from Angola, Niassa, Cabo Delgado, Nampula, Zambezia, and parts of Tete from Mozambique, alongside minor Portuguese colonies. His Bezirksleiterrecht policy has calmed down the natives somewhat, who now at least are partially run by their laws and a few communities being assimilated into german ones. However, Asmis' in deteriorating condition, and many men in his administration line up to succeed him. The are reactionaries who believe that laws should be codified through multiple levels of bureaucracy from the local level to Berlin(which includes breaking Mittelafrika up into smaller colonies), and overseen by both local police and the military. In addition, his group believes natives must speak German. Wishing to continue Asmis' policies is the status quo wing. And finally, there's the reformist faction, who want Africans to elect local leaders to assist in interpretation, as well as to allow blacks the same medical treatment as whites. The Reformgruppe and Neue Kolonialregierung also exist, though it will take either a social democrat or a military member in Berlin to appoint any of them.

Recommended Nations:
-Somali Empire
-Mittelafrika
-Khedivate of Egypt
-South Africa

Epilogue

And so, begins a new era in Earth's history. As new technologies are made, such as rockets which may soon reach space, weapons which may obliterate entire cities, and cures to diseases considered incurable, as new wars are being waged, as movements for change, balance, or reversion to the past fight, as new friendships and rivalries occur, which of the main three factions will come out on top? Which nations will secure their own small region in the world? Which nations will be blown into irrelevance? And which will go into the dustbin of history? Will the Germans survive the Burning Sun, and will it always shine pleasantly on Japan? Will the suns rays reach France and America? Time will tell, regardless if humanity is still there or not.

Could I reserve the United Baltic Duchy? Would it be possible to play as the natpop Baltic Brotherhood-led Baltic State as well? I really like their aesthetics and enjoyed playing them in Kaiserredux.

I'll count you as reserved, and probably set up a reservation application. Though the UBD is still the UBD, so it's at most the Kighthoods I believe.

I have some questions to ask, mainly about France. Is France in the Reichspakt or in what faction is it? In what year does the RP take place? Is François de La Rocque canon for this RP or I can change him with someone else?

De La Rocque is considered canon. France is in the Entente. However, they do have a small defensive treaty signed with Germany and are currently negotiating for either entry into the Reichspakt and Mitteleuropa, or a whole new alliance called the "European Coalition".

I have some questions to ask, mainly about France. Is France in the Reichspakt or in what faction is it? In what year does the RP take place? Is François de La Rocque canon for this RP or I can change him with someone else?

De La Rocque is considered canon. France is in the Entente, which is it, Portugal, and Sardinia. However, they do have a small defensive treaty signed with Germany and are currently negotiating for either entry into the Reichspakt and Mitteleuropa, or a whole new alliance called the "European Coalition". The RP starts on January 1st, 1945.


Ok. Thanks!

Application
RP Nation Name: National French Republic
Head of State: Francois De La Rocque
Head of Government: Charles De Gaulle
Extra: Francois De La Rocque being a Military Dictator forming a Cult of Personality around him wouldn't be suitable for him, as according to the Kaiserreich Lore, he opposes Petain's Dictatorship and promotes Republicanism under a President with Strong Executive Power. That's why I deviated from your lore a little bit and made De La Rocque into a potential Military Dictator (if I will choose to maintain the Junta until the Communards are dealt with). Yes, I don't deny he pretty much has Authoritarian Powers, but not outright Dictator. Here's his Kaiserreich Lore:
https://kaiserreich.fandom.com/wiki/Fra ... _La_Rocque
History from 1936(1-2 paragraphs): Since its exile in 1919 by the Communes, the National French Republic in North Africa has been poised to reclaim its rightful Metropolitan Territory. The "Lion" General Philippe Petain ruled the nation through a military junta since 1926 but lost power in the struggle in 1936 against the reformist General Henri Mordacq. Together with the Kingdom of Canada and the rest of the Entente, France prepared for her Homecoming. In 1939, the Second Weltkrieg erupted when the German Empire refused the Communard Ultimatum. Seizing this opportunity, the Entente declared war on the Third Internationale, only in two years since the war to join forces with the Reichspakt under the European Coalition. In 1942, the National French Republic landed and occupied Marseille and other ports in the South. Unfortunately for the Canadian allies, the Union of Socialist American States invaded Canada, with King Edward and his government fleeing into France. Two years later, the Commune of France capitulated after the German entrance in Paris. Finally, the Union of Britain capitulated too after its mainland got invaded. Germany gave the National French Republic her land back as it had more legitimacy to uproot the Syndicalists than a German Puppeted France. France was whole again and the 1919 expulsion got avenged although at great cost. Now the National French Republic faces the dilemma of whenever should democracy be restored but risk instability or maintain the Military Dictatorship until the Communards are dealt with. Unfortunately, General Henri Mordacq died in 1943, almost two years before France was whole again. He got replaced by Francois De La Rocque who promised to continue Mordacq Legacy, but the current situation may force him to take a different direction.

Accepted, given De La Rocque is still a dictator for now. Admittedly, the personality cult thing I made is also completely absent in kaiserreich, even in his PautAut path, so I'll remove it.

Thanks! Although De La Rocque will pretty much die in a year or two, so he won't be able to do much.

RP Nation Name: Kingdom of England
Head of State: King Charles III of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha
Head of Government Anthony Ludovici
Extra: Prince of Wales: Johann Leopold
History from 1936(1-2 paragraphs)

Mosley soon became Leader of the Union of Britain under a Totalist Doctrine, establishing a Military and using an increasingly Authoritarian Regime. After the Third Internationale's defeat in the Second Weltkrieg, King Charles III of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was declared King by German Occupiers. They soon formed a Collaborationist Government, many calling them the "Second Hanoverians". Under the Premiership of Anthony Ludovici and his National Bloc, he has collaborated with the German Empire and made Economic reforms in a German style. Under the reforms of Anthony Ludovici, England paid back a large part of its debt, and with financial aid from the Germans, rebuilt London and the south of England, and are currently under construction projects in the Midlands and North.

However, the rule of the National Bloc and the Collaborators is leading on a fringe. His Majesties Most Loyal Resistance, forces loyal to King Edward VIII and the Duke of York, an International Organization are led by Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery and have the support of remaining Tories and Whigs. Socialists in England, who support Oswald Mosley, are organized under the Left Resistance, who are led by Totalist General, Bill Alexander. Royalist General David Stirling leads the Movement to support the Army, a group of Commandos that hunt down and kill Germans and Collaborators. The English Army has supported the National Bloc, although some have loyalties to Mosley. but much of the Navy and the Airforce is disloyal to the Government, with their connection to the Royalists. Civil War seems imminent.

Each faction of England, Royalists, Collaborators, and Leftists both have support from Foreign Powers. The Left Resistance is continuing to get supplies from Ireland, the United States, and Australia. The Collaborators have undoubted support from the Germans and Austrians, and the Royalists appear to have the support of the South Africans, French, and possibly the Russians or Japanese.

History from 1936(1-2 paragraphs)

South Africa in the 1930s was a complicated place. Greatly enhanced territorial, and granted even greater autonomy in the early 1930s, the country was by far one of, if not the most modern nation in all of Africa. However, this era of relative modernity and semi-prosperity was mired with racial tensions and ethnic tensions across South Africa. As of 1936, the country was experiencing an influx of immigrants from India, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. This was upsetting the careful balance the ruling White upper class sought to preserve. Compounding this was the growth in South Africa's industrial sectors, something which in itself was leading to issues when it came to trying to uphold racial segregation. The United Party was coming under fire from all sides for its policies. The Labour Party and Communist Party, both traditionally aligned with the United Party when it came to racial issues, found their voting base increasingly made up of immigrants that opposed racial segregation and even growing numbers of non-Whites in the case of the Communist Party. And the ANC was becoming increasingly effective at calling for further equality and the end of segregation thanks to the skilful leadership of J.T. Gumede. These threats caused the United Party to focus on cracking down on any and all attempts at reform with the pretext of law and order being used. A sign of these laws working was the 1938 General Election which saw the Union Party triumph at the polls thanks to what many considered to be electoral fraud and voter suppression. This led to a general strike in South Africa that ended two months later thanks to heavy-handed repression tactics and the deployment of the military. But, the seed was sown for revolution.

The continued development of South Africa prior to the Second World War led to the balance of power tipping further and further from the hands of the United Party. In 1939, the Labour Party would come under the leadership of Alex Hepple, a reformer who was strictly opposed to the continuation of racial segregation. The previous year saw the infamous Jan Smuts return to power. Smuts, with his hard-line views, was no different from his peers in the United Party, what would differentiate him would be the timing of his rule, coinciding with the Second World War. South Africa remained neutral during the war because it frankly was in no way or shape politically able to fight. Instead, the influx of civilians fleeing conflict in Europe, as well as increasing resentment towards the little rule Britain still had over South Africa, led to Bloody 1942. The catalyst for Bloody 1942, was in late 1941, the passing and subsequent signing into law of the Smuts Act. This act's goal was very simple, to enforce the racial and societal hierarchy of South Africa in such a way that it benefited the United Party. However, this wasn't the South Africa of old. The influx of millions of Poles, Indians, Jews, Russians, Ukrainians, and even Americans had changed not just the ethnic make-up of the country, it had also change the political makeup significantly. The United Party's hard-line and reactionary policies were at odds with what the people wanted, and in early 1942, the tensions present for so long erupted. Indians and native Africans began to protest over their disenfranchisement and the haves and have not available to them.

History from 1936(1-2 paragraphs)

South Africa in the 1930s was a complicated place. Greatly enhanced territorial, and granted even greater autonomy in the early 1930s, the country was by far one of, if not the most modern nation in all of Africa. However, this era of relative modernity and semi-prosperity was mired with racial tensions and ethnic tensions across South Africa. As of 1936, the country was experiencing an influx of immigrants from India, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. This was upsetting the careful balance the ruling White upper class sought to preserve. Compounding this was the growth in South Africa's industrial sectors, something which in itself was leading to issues when it came to trying to uphold racial segregation. The United Party was coming under fire from all sides for its policies. The Labour Party and Communist Party, both traditionally aligned with the United Party when it came to racial issues, found their voting base increasingly made up of immigrants that opposed racial segregation and even growing numbers of non-Whites in the case of the Communist Party. And the ANC was becoming increasingly effective at calling for further equality and the end of segregation thanks to the skilful leadership of J.T. Gumede. These threats caused the United Party to focus on cracking down on any and all attempts at reform with the pretext of law and order being used. A sign of these laws working was the 1938 General Election which saw the Union Party triumph at the polls thanks to what many considered to be electoral fraud and voter suppression. This led to a general strike in South Africa that ended two months later thanks to heavy-handed repression tactics and the deployment of the military. But, the seed was sown for revolution.

The continued development of South Africa prior to the Second World War led to the balance of power tipping further and further from the hands of the United Party. In 1939, the Labour Party would come under the leadership of Alex Hepple, a reformer who was strictly opposed to the continuation of racial segregation. The previous year saw the infamous Jan Smuts return to power. Smuts, with his hard-line views, was no different from his peers in the United Party, what would differentiate him would be the timing of his rule, coinciding with the Second World War. South Africa remained neutral during the war because it frankly was in no way or shape politically able to fight. Instead, the influx of civilians fleeing conflict in Europe, as well as increasing resentment towards the little rule Britain still had over South Africa, led to Bloody 1942. The catalyst for Bloody 1942, was in late 1941, the passing and subsequent signing into law of the Smuts Act. This act's goal was very simple, to enforce the racial and societal hierarchy of South Africa in such a way that it benefited the United Party. However, this wasn't the South Africa of old. The influx of millions of Poles, Indians, Jews, Russians, Ukrainians, and even Americans had changed not just the ethnic make-up of the country, it had also change the political makeup significantly. The United Party's hard-line and reactionary policies were at odds with what the people wanted, and in early 1942, the tensions present for so long erupted. Indians and native Africans began to protest over their disenfranchisement and the haves and have not available to them. Meanwhile, the middle class protested over their lack of a voice in the political system and South Africa's draconian laws. And as expected, the government deployed the army to crush the protests. Unfortunately for Smuts, the army refused due to the ever-growing size of the protests and because some lower-ranking officers had begun to defect to the side of the protesters. Unwilling to give up power so easily, Smuts turned to the South African Police who were ruthless in trying to crush the protests. The bloodshed caused by these crackdowns stained cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg not just literally, but also metaphorically, and led to further public discontent towards the government. By now it was becoming clear to the upper echelons of the military that Smuts was just going to drag the nation further into bloodshed, and so on September 8th, 1944, the military arrested Smuts and replaced him with another hardliner, D.
