Premise.

Welcome to 2020: The Grand Game, an alternate-history modern-world geopolitical nation RP. Here we attempt to tell the story of a unique world, a multi-polar world similar to our own but yet starkly different in many ways. In this RP, you’ll be playing the role of a nation and be tasked with managing internal, foreign and military affairs in this similar yet different global climate. As long as nothing contradicts the established history as laid out in the OP, you have relatively free reign regarding your nations history from the general POD in the year 1600, just keep that in mind and you'll be fine. Another important thing to keep in mind is that you are running a “real” nation, this isn’t a game of Hoi4 so pour some cold water on that war-boner. Your government’s actions must be realistic for the type of government, and keep in mind the state of your people because they very much can, and will, revolt and try to overthrow you depending on how you run things. So long as you keep in mind the ideology of your government and your people, however, you should once more be fine.

While there is a League of Nations it is significantly more divided than the UN given the state of world politics and it has no hegemonic superpower to enforce it's decisions. Thus, there is no real “organized”, legal way of really sanctioning a nation globally. Don’t act like this gives you a free hand though. You won’t be sanctioned for your government type, but if you act cruelly and do something as heinous as try to commit genocide you’re at major risk for sanction or invasion. If it isn’t in the name of human rights, it’ll be in the name of natural resources or geopolitical interest. Morality and imperialist interests will always exist, so you shouldn’t be surprised if your genocidal dictatorship ends up with an Abrams (or Challenger, or T-90, or ZTZ) parked in the backyard of your palace.

Also, the history is not 100% set in stone, I've done my best to try and make an interesting and at least vaguely plausible multipolar alternate modern world but if people have interesting suggestions, don't be afraid to bring them up! Also, a big shoutout to the Cobalt Network for coming up with the International Entity mechanic!




Rules

1: The word of the OP and Co-Ops (Chewion and Hypron) is law. You are encouraged to talk about it if you think we’re doing something wrong, but in the end, we call the shots, deal with it.

2: No drama in the OOC so don't flame, troll or otherwise be a douche. If you go too far and recognize this you'll get away with a warning but constant harassment, even after mediation, is a ban.

3: No godmodding, meta-gaming, etc. If you try to bend the rules or pull any gamey tricks, you’ll be warned and any meta RP actions will be disregarded. Continued repetition is a ban.

4: No one-liners so don't just make posts about single thing. Write a section regarding an economic endeavor, another dealing with diplomatic messages and another about your new space-program.

5: Post regularly. I won’t be too strict, but you generally shouldn’t have more than a week or so IRL between your posts. If you get sick/busy IRL, I’ll give you extra time as necessary.

6: You’re running a nation, so act like it. You can’t just invade places as you please and if you run your nation into the ground, the people will rise up and try to depose your government. When making a decision, try to keep in mind “would the people of my nation support this?”

7: Be realistic. You can’t just magically land divisions across the Pacific Ocean, and federalizing an ethnically diverse nation isn’t randomly going to make all regional nationalism disappear.

8: This RP isn’t just about war, so your posts shouldn’t fully revolve around it. Likewise, when you go to war, you should build it up to psychologically prepare your people for war. No OOC penalties for breaking this rule, but your population sure as hell won’t like it.

9: Have fun, no, seriously. This RP should be fun for all involved, if it feels like a chore, you’re welcome to leave. It’s just an RP, you shouldn’t stress yourself over it or have it take priority over your real life.

10: If you aren’t sure about something, ask the future co-ops or myself! We’re not geopolitics gods or anything but we’re always here to try to do our best to help you with your plans, be it world domination or improving your road network.




Guidelines and stuff to keep in mind

1: National Unity: Basically a measure of united your country is and if the government is looked on in a positive light from the perspective of the people. This value can be effected by many things, for instance, national unrest. If your nation is in rebellion obviously your national unity would be radically lowered. If your government has been found to have been doing things your citizenry does not approve of such as for example subverting democratic processes in a democratic nation, your national unity will also lower. While there is no strict numerical value for national unity, keeping it high is important in order to maintain stability.

2: Diplomacy: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Meeting with a leader from one country can lower the opinion of your nation in another. Diplomacy will in many ways be at the heart of this roleplay, not warfare. Warfare will most surely exist but much of the roleplay should be occupied by managing national policy and involving yourself with other nations in agreements, civil wars etc, using your information about the global situation and your wits to turn the situation to your advantage rather than just going in "guns blazing" all the time. Thus diplomatic meetings, summits and backroom talks are all highly encouraged in the IC!

3. Economics: Every nation has a unique approach regarding their economic system especially so in regards to rising powers and planned or semi-planned economies. Radical state control of the economy or completely free-wheeling Laissez Faire capitalist policies will in most situations lead to an economic downturn and failure to implement economic policies or implementing policies which end up having negative effects on the nation will result in lowered national unity. Most countries with resource-dependent economies tend to be unstable in nature and are thus highly likely to suffer from the negative effects of economic instability. Diversifying into different sectors can help escape this, however it could anger the corporate/political elites of your nation.

4. Internal Policy: Another major part of the RP is the governance of the state and implementation of internal policy connected to education, healthcare, infrastructure, culture or whatever else you decide to focus on. Elections are decided by the Global Authority for democratic nations while authoritarian states must keep the elite ruling class happy, failing to do this makes authoritarian states more likely to undergo violent political shakeups or even coup-attempts if national unity reaches a critical low-point. Large-scale political unrest can occur if either your leader has maintained an unpopular grip on high levels of power, instituted major policies that contradict with your nation's ideological/cultural/religious values, and if resources necessary for the economy and every-day life are horribly distributed. Policies which advocate for a massive level of connection to the global economy will make your country more open to foreign influences in both politics and culture while cosmopolitan ideals in your country grow stronger, with reactionary politics rising as a legitimate alternative over the course of years.

5. Technology: Technology is an essential part of economics, warfare, standards of living, espionage and so on. Countries that pour more money into technology development, or nations which subsidize tech development companies and so on will grow their technology more quickly. Nations can also enter into joint research agreements, speeding up the process of development. Generally nations will have access to the same military equipment they do IRL. However, also take stock of your territories. For example Anglois would have access to British and French tech, but with some perhaps being used by Occitaine, leading Anglois to use British equivalents. Like in any Alt-Hist RP though there will be plenty of nations with more developed industrial bases than they have in IRL, prototypes are sort of an open game, including paper prototypes. In a world where for example the Anglois Kingdom isn't part of an alliance where the UASC is obliged to step in and defend it, it would likely have placed money into it's own domestic warplane designs, such as maybe the BAE P125. Another thing to consider is international alignment. For example in this little slice of the multiverse, Poland is part of the Comintern and thus wouldn't be operating any Leopard 2's or F-16's, instead it would probably be using T-80's and SU-37's while the MSBS assault rifle would be chambered for the 5.45 instead of the 5.56 cartridge. If you'd like to produce something another nation has you can always ask them OOCly or ICly if you are allowed to license produce it. In some cases I'd be willing to, if both players agree, move a domestic design from one nation to the other in terms of which nation invented it. New military tech takes time to produce and implement into your armed forces but in a world with a generally more tense and competitive global climate there will be some leeway in introduction dates, though this does not in any way mean that for example the Soviets will be allowed to have turned the T-14 into the T-34 of the 21'st century or that Columbia is gonna get 10 Ford-Class Carriers ready to go from the start.

6. War: If diplomacy fails and war breaks out National Unity plays an important role in warfare by determining if the population enthusiastically goes out to buy war-bonds or riots against conscription in the streets. National Unity can be built up pre-war by using propaganda to rile up your populace before issuing a declaration of war. If your population doesn't support an offensive war, then you will be hampered. War should be declared before any invasions can begin as any invasion of a country without a declaration of war will deeply tarnish your international image. During the war, geography and logistics should be considered with great care. Work to keep your frontline at an ideal size and not overextending yourself, A full invasion into Siberia, the Himalayas, or the Amazon is a guaranteed way to overextend and collapse your supply chains faster than you can say Barbarossa. Military operations should be noted in detail or the GA will have to make assumptions and military progress may be a little hampered. How much detail you want to go into is totally up to you, but the more detail the better usually. Keep in mind that your troops will not do exactly what you say 100% of the time. There will be miscommunications, there will be mistakes, there will be desertion and there will be incompetency. While this very unlikely to cripple your entire war effort it should be something to keep in the back of your mind.




Established History

1: The Fourth Crusade sacked Constantinople much as in OTL and then proceeded to crush the Byzantine Empire. Then, the crusaders continued their drive deep into Anatolia where they broke the back of the Seljuk Turks and founded the crusader kingdom of Anatolia, leaving Trebizond and Morea as the sole remnants of old Byzantium in Greece and Anatolia. The early destruction of the Turkic forces in Anatolia leads Mamluk Egypt to become the dominant power in the Middle-East and North Africa between the 15'th and 19'th centuries and the world's pre-eminent Muslim power which at it's high water mark extended it's control from Tunisia in the west to Iraq in the east and from southern Anatolia in the north almost down to the Congo in the south when at it's height.

2: As the Hundred Years War rages in France, Jeanne d'Arc dies when an outbreak of plague sweeps through her village, with nobody to rally the faltering French forces, the English gain victory first at Orleans, then in the war itself. The Plantagenets take the French throne and move the English court to Paris where they proceed to restructure the various French regional parliaments into a single centralized parliament subordinated to the crown along the English model. With the monarchy situated in Paris, the English parliament takes an increasingly active role in governing England, whereas the English nobility, many of whom now spend much of their time in newly gained estates of France adopt more and more French customs and culture. Out of this English victory in the middle-ages, the United Kingdom of Anglois of today was born.

3: The Renaissance/Age of Exploration/Military Revolution and European Colonization happen much as in OTL with some differences. The Anglois Kingdom and Kingdom of Iberia become the major colonial powers in the world with the Netherlands, Occitaine, Ireland and Sweden becoming lesser Colonial powers, Germany and Italy join the race for colonies later on in the mid to late 19'th century. The Reformation does occur but Lutheranism never really expands far beyond Northern Germany, Scandinavia, Scotland and the Low Countries. Calvinism gained a substantial following in England and parts of France, however the English Parliament, soon followed by the Royal Anglois authorities passed acts allowing various religious dissident groups to migrate to the colonies where they could practice their faith free from persecution, leading to Columbia being the majority protestant state that it is today while England and France remain majority Catholic.

4: The Anglois colonies in North America revolt and proclaim their independence as the United American States of Columbia under the world's first modern democratic constitution, not that dissimilar to the US of OTL. There is a significant divide between the Anglo north and French-speaking hugenot-descended south however, not only in culture but in economic organization as the southern states are highly dependent on cotton-slavery. Iberia's American colonies start slipping from the ailing Empire's grasp in the early 19'th century and Columbia starts rising to great-power station after crushingly defeating Mexico in a war over the territory of Texas. The European empires began viewing Columbia with hostility as it worked to keep them from regaining lost sway in the Americas by using a weakened, destabilized Mexico as a springboard for their influence after the Columbians repelled an attempted Anglois intervention in the country and spreading their influence south, stabilizing Central America and placing it firmly beyond the reach of the European Empires. Meanwhile in India, the spread of Christianity by Anglois missionaries finally led to a terribly bloody series of war between radicalized Indian Christians and the traditional established elites and conservative forces. However, unlike the Taiping Rebellion in China which was crushed by the conservatives, the Indian Christians managed to hold on with Anglois assistance, leading to India's current religious demographics.

5: The the deep north-south divide in the UASC finally leads to the hugenot states seceding after a contentious election between anglophone anti-slavery Republican Abraham Lincoln and pro-slavery francophone Democrat Jacques C Balligny, in turn leading to the Columbian Civil War. Led by abolitionist President Abraham Lincoln, the northern states succeed in defeating the southern states thanks to their great advantage in population, resources and industry managing to in time overcome the initial military leadership advantages of the south. The subsequent assassination of Lincoln by southern radical Valentin Dubois and domination of Congress by the radical republicans led to the passing of the 14'th Amendment to the Columbian constitution, giving all former black slaves full Columbian birthright citizenship. Violence stemming from white extremists and retaliatory crackdowns by the government in Washington plagues the South until the late 1880's as the country goes through a long and painful reconstruction period. The violence in the South pushes more than 100 000 Columbian freedmen to make the journey to Liberia, expanding the territory significantly and kicking off the Scramble for Africa as Anglois worked to limit the spread of Columbian influence.

6: Russian Tzar Alexander II survives the assassination attempt against him and continues to reform Russia, investing in education, infrastructure and raising the level of professionalism in the officer corps, his successor dies of disease soon after rising to the throne and Russian Foreign Minister Simonov is replaced before managing to come to an agreement and sign a treaty with Japan which had the potential to avert the looming threat of war between the two nations in Korea and Manchuria. Russia suffers a humiliating loss against the Japanese in 1905 and the internal conditions in Russia worsened significantly during the subsequent rule of ultra-conservative Tzar Nicholas II, feeding into and further radicalizing Russia's now rapidly growing communist movement.

7: In 1909, the Austro-Hungarian Empire integrates the Kingdom of Bavaria, deeply antagonizing Prussia's North German Federation. In a bid to unify Germany and complete Bismarck's vision, the North German Confederation invades Austria's South German allies in 1915 when their troops cross the borders of Saxony, Thuringen and Hessen. So started the Great War, with the North German Confederation, Anglois Kingdom, Kingdom of Italy, Mamluk Empire and Greece as parts of the Entente, facing off against the Vienna Circle, made up of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Russian Empire, Occitaine, Anatolia, Bulgaria and the southern German states. By 1920, the Austrian Empire had collapsed, as did the Mamluk Empire while the Russian Empire fell to a communist revolution led by Vladimir Lenin in 1919. The Entente Alliance had been victorious. The triumphant Northern Germans annexed the Southern German states, Austria and Bohemia while Italy gained Nice and Corsica from Occitaine and most importantly, took Venice and Istria from Austria. The Mamluk empire collapsed and in it’s place rose the Hashemites and Saudis while Anglois and Italy greatly expanded their influence in the Middle-East. Poland, Hungary, Finland and Yugoslavia all gained independence from the crumbling empires that had once ruled them while an unstable Hungary soon lost Transylvania to a Romanian lighting attack and Anatolia found itself at odds with both Greece and the USSR until the tensions in the Black Sea ended with the signing of the Turin Accord, leading to the formation of the Free City of Constantinople as an independent, neutral state and guarantor of the Moncreux Convention along with a Soviet mandate in Kurdistan. The guns were silent, for the time being.

8: The bloodletting and horror of the Great War led to deep, profound changes in Europe, radical movements rose as the old monarchic systems seemed less and less appealing to the continent's bloodied youth. Still, as the global economy boomed, these groups remained on the margins. After all, few people listen to extremists and political doomsday prophets when there's more than enough money to go around except perhaps in Japan and Hungary. In Japan the fledgling democracy fell to a Showa nationalist regime and in Hungary, outrage and a deep feeling of national humiliation saw the rise of the ultranationalist Arrow Cross Party and its seizure of power.

9: In 1930, the Berlin Stock Market Crash brought about a deep global crisis, the Great Depression had come. The profound economic hardship led to great unrest across the world. War broke out in Asia as the Japanese Empire first invaded Manchuria and then struck toward the Chinese heartland, making great bloody strides into a China weakened by internal division and civil war before Chiang Kai-Shek managed to organize a united front against the Japanese. An economically struggling Europe saw communist revolutions in Romania and in Poland where the disaffected peasants hoped to repeat the agricultural revitalization which happened in the USSR under General Secretary Nikolai Bukharin. In other countries such as Germany both extreme left and right ideologies were on the rise. Finally, in 1938 as it seemed like the faltering conservative government in the German Empire was about to enter into a coalition with the surging right-wing radical Teutonist Party, a communist revolution erupted in the Ruhr and along Germany's northwestern coast led by Paul Levi, Karl Liebknecht and Ernst Thälmann. Soon thereafter, the Polish-majority areas of the German Empire such as Posen, East Pommerania, Masuria and Upper Silesia saw their own uprisings. The German Empire descended into a bloody civil war. By 1941 however, it seemed that Imperial German forces with Entente support were finally on the verge of defeating the communist rebels after years of bloody fighting when troops from the People's Republic of Poland and USSR crossed the German border in a surprise attack. Polish leader Bierut had finally managed to convince Soviet leader Bukharin to intervene directly in Germany's civil war. The Comintern intervention immediately pulled Anglois and Italy into the conflict and so, the Second Great War in Europe began.

10: With the great powers of Europe busy fighting once again, the Japanese saw their chance to capture the resources they desperately needed to finally break the deadlock in China by striking against the European colonies in Southeast Asia and against the Columbian territory of the Philippines. With the Anglois busy with the war in Europe, the Japanese decided to strike the Columbian Pacific Fleet at anchor in Hawaii on December 7'th 1941, hoping to destroy it and force Columbia to remain out of the conflict and open the path for Japan to attack Dutch Indonesia and Anglois Indochina. The attack on Pearl Harbor led to the start of the Pacific War where Columbia found itself standing side by side with the Chinese in a war against Japan and fighting soon erupted between the Columbian and Japanese navies across the Pacific ocean as both sides tried to take strategically important islands. In Europe the Entente alliance managed to defeat most German communist forces in the western parts of the country by late 1941, regaining control of the immensely important Ruhr and allowing them to turn their full attention to the east and stop the Soviet-Polish attempts to overrun the defenses along the Oder river and open a path toward Berlin as well as to regain a foothold in Bohemia which had almost completely fallen under Comintern control. With the great powers busy, the Hungarians attempted to invade Romania but were forced to halt their advance despite Bulgarian assistance in the south, leading Hungary and Bulgaria to join the Entente in the fight against the Comintern and forcing Germany, Anglois and primarily Italy and Greece to divert troops to the Balkans.

11: Throughout 1942 and 1943 the Chinese managed to slowly retake ground inch by bloody inch thanks to Columbian material support and training as well a large number of Columbian volunteer pilots managing to help the previously weak and struggling Chinese air force to gain air parity with the Japanese while in the Pacific, Columbian forces began inching closer to Japan in bloody landing after bloody landing. The great naval battles of the Pacific War proved the Age of the Battleship to be over. With ever more crucial Japanese sea-lanes being cut with every month, Japan's defeat seemed only a matter of time and indeed, by late 1944, Columbian troops were landing on Kyushu, but with casualties that horrified the Columbian public at home. Forcing the Columbian President Roosevelt to enter into negotiations with the Japanese, to the great protests of China and Chiang Kai-Shek. On the 21'st of November 1944, the Peace of Canberra ended the Pacific War, Japan lost nearly all of it's gains in China but retained Taiwan and the Kinmen Isles, as well as retaining control of Korea. Chiang Kai-Shek, deeply depressed over the "Columbian Betrayal '' and his perceived failure to liberate all of China from the Japanese, retreated from politics, leading to the rise of Wang Jingwei and Mao Zedong. Meanwhile in Europe, the front had largely ground to a stalemate on the Oder and Neisse, similar the one seen during the First Great War however, both sides were marshalling their forces for large offensives. In 1944 a great Entente offensive crossed the Oder and pushed the Polish-Soviet forces out of Neumark and Eastern Pommerania. The celebrations were however soon cut short, as in the Balkans, Bulgaria fell to a combined Romanian and Soviet offensive. Another Comintern offensive tried but failed to break out across the Hungarian Plain while Entente forces mounted a successful offensive against Prague encircling 300 000 Comintern soldiers in the city. The front ground to a halt once more with the Comintern trying but failing to relieve Prague in the winter of 1944, Prague falling to the Entente during the winter. Sure of victory, the Entente attempted a spring offensive against Warsaw but were stopped before even breaking through a few kilometers and were then hurled back from the outskirts of Gdansk with heavy casualties. With the combined death-toll of the Second Great War rising to 15 million by the autumn of 1945, neither side saw any clear path to victory and both grew increasingly worried that continued bloodletting may lead to the great internal instability seen toward the end of the First Great War.

12: In the winter of 1945, peace finally came to Europe with the signing of the Treaty of Copenhagen. The so-called “Christmas Treaty '' saw Europe's borders redrawn mostly along the line of control. While the war had no decisive victor, it is undeniable that the Comintern had significantly expanded thanks to the conflict, with Poland gaining Poznan, Masuria, Gdansk and Upper Silesia while a communist regime was installed in Bulgaria which also gained some territory in the south allowing it access to the Sea of Marmara. It also saw the formation of a Communist state in Slovakia and parts of Czechia under the leadership of Karol Smidke. Understandably, Germany was furious at the loss of territory and seeing a massive influx of Germans previously inhabiting the territories lost in the East, almost left the Entente over the "Betrayal and cowardice of the Italians and Anglois'' to form an alternative alliance with Hungary, however, the collapse of the alliance was avoided in the last minute after a top meeting between Prime Minister Winston Churchill and the German Kaiser. The borders between the Entente and Comintern nations remained tense and highly militarized for decades in anticipation of another conflict both sides were sure to come.

13: With the death of Chiang Kai-Shek in 1953, most expected Wang Jingwei to replace him as the leader of China, what happened instead was a coup orchestrated by the KMT-Right led by Dai Li who used his control over the Chinese security apparatus to purge the KMT of it's leftist elements and secure his control over the party and the country as a whole. The coup led to the Trial of the 55 where Wang, Mao and other leading members of the KMT-Left were charged with crimes such as treason and collaboration with the Japanese occupiers during the Pacific War and sentenced to death. Where many had expected China to lurch toward socialism and closer ties with the Comintern under Wang, it instead turned hard to the right under Li who proceeded to rapidly industrialize China with a series of brutal economic plans which while it did give the country a strong industrial base and solid military-industrial complex, it came at the cost of significant human suffering. In the late 1950's the grip of the European powers over their colonial possessions in Asia began to slip. As the Anglois left Indochina, the weak, unstable governments in both Cambodia and Vietnam fell to communist revolutionaries who proceeded to cement their control. As Ho Chi Minh’s regime consolidated itself, Chinese forces invaded Vietnam in an attempt to install a pro-Chinese government in Hanoi. However, instead of the unstable Vietnamese state collapsing the invasion rallied the Vietnamese around the new government and even after a decade of brutal jungle fighting the Chinese military proved incapable of defeating the Vietnamese which led to an internal revolt within the KMT which ousted Dai Li from power in 1968 and the exit of Chinese troops followed by Vietnam and Cambodia being fast-tracked into the Comintern. The Chinese economy was reformed and opened to the world leading to a great economic boom which by today has turned Nationalist China into an economic giant, surpassed only by Columbia.

14: After it's first democratic election in India in 1954, the former Anglois Dominion was granted independence, with Myanmar becoming a separate country but no separate Muslim state being created. The new state was soon rocked by several Islamic, Hindu and Christian groups rebelling in an attempt to establish religious dominance in the new state. After several years of fighting, The unified Indian state collapsed as Bengal, Pakistan and Nepal broke away from New Delhi and formed their own independent states.

15: With anti-colonial unrest spreading from Asia to many of their African colonies, the Anglois and German monarchs released the symbolic “Sandringham Proclamation” in 1958, in which they promised to gradually grant their colonies in Africa independence. Later, Occitaine and Iberia released similar declarations of their own in 1960. Determined not to let the decolonization of Africa lead to war as in India or the potential rise of communist regimes as had happened in Vietnam, Cambodia and the botched Italian decolonization of Somalia, the European powers went through a long, slow decolonization process in Africa involving plenty of compromises and negotiations. As a result of this transition of power, most of the African colonies had peacefully transitioned into largely functional, stable democratic states by the late 1980's and early 1990’s, several of whom soon proceeded to join the Entente.

16: 1955 saw the first atomic bomb being test-dropped on a remote, isolated part of German Congo, confirming that nuclear weapons could be used in warfare. The Germans were the first to create nuclear weapons technology, but they were by no means the last. The sheer panic that gripped Slovakia and Poland soon led to the Soviet Union testing its own first nuclear weapon in 1958, followed closely by Anglois and Columbia in 1960. The destructive power of this new weapon led the nuclear-capable states of Germany, Anglois, Columbia, China, Japan, Brazil and the Soviet Union to sign the Nuclear Armaments Control Treaty in 1975 where they agreed to limit their stockpile to no more than 200 nukes each. India would proceed to later start a nuclear weapons program of its own in the late 1970's after fighting another war with Pakistan, but only keep 60 warheads after heavy international pressure in the League of Nations and comprehensive sanctions which led to a deep economic recession in India.

17: The 1970's saw tensions in Europe declining and some demilitarization as new treaties were signed between the Entente and Comintern. Despite this facade, the two alliances engaged in proxy conflicts around the world the very same time. One in Africa and one in Central Asia. The Ogaden War was fought between Somalia, a member of the Comintern and neutral Ethiopia which saw received material support from Italy. The Italian support proved inadequate and the war ended with Somalia conquering Ethiopia’s somali-majority regions in the east. The defeat, coupled with the effects of a lingering drought in the early 1970’s led to Ethiopia’s collapse along ethnic lines. In Afghanistan meanwhile, the deeply unpopular communist regime ruling the country was in danger of being overthrown by the Taliban, leading the Soviet Union and Comintern to send military support in order to prop up the failing regime in Kabul while Entente intelligence agencies collaborating with India proceeded to ship weapons to the Taliban as well as to provide them with advanced training in guerilla warfare. The Afghan communist regime fell in 1981 and the Comintern forces retreated in a humiliation similar to what the Chinese endured in Vietnam, losing control of most of the country but unilaterally incorporating the northeastern part of the country and the Wakhan Corridor into the People's Federation of Turkestan.

18: By the late 1980's South Africa went through its own trials and tribulations, the death of Nelson Mandela in prison robbed the country of a figure capable of making the compromises needed to keep the country together. With Mandela gone, the conservative elements of the Apartheid regime dominated the conversation on reform and South Africa eventually collapsed into a civil war with a large Bantu rebellion in the Eastern areas of the country. While superior in training and equipment, the South African military quickly lost control over the eastern countryside, holding out in Pretoria, Durban and Bloemfontein which the rebels quickly besieged. Despite giving full citizenship rights to the mixed and asian populations of South Africa, the apartheid regime didn't have the manpower needed to make lasting gains against the numerically superior rebels. As the brutal ethnic violence quickly spiraled out of control, Columbia intervened through the League of Nations and demanded an end to the fighting, later presiding over the peace talks along with the Anglois. The Bloemfontein Accord saw South Africa split into the Cape Republic in the west and the Bantu State in the east which declared its capital in Egoli, formerly Johannesburg. A large guerilla insurgency soon gripped the Cape, armed and funded by the Johannesburg government with the aim of overthrowing the Cape Town government and reuniting South Africa under Egoli. While most people with advanced economic skill in South Africa concentrated in the Cape, the general uncompetitiveness of South Africa along with internal unrest and distance from most of the world's economic centers gave the Cape Republic a stagnant economy seemingly incapable of recovering from the War. The Bantu State didn’t fare much better and soon descended into a repressive, totalitarian, ultranationalistic dictatorship and after its economy collapsed and was ravaged by hyperinflation.

19: The destabilization in Africa caused by the South African Civil War led Anglois to expedite the settlement of its colonial issues. Referendums were held in its remaining colonies with Gambia, Kenya, Ceylon and Peninsular Malaya voting to join as full constituent overseas territories while in tense negotiations between China on one side and Anglois and Iberia on the other, China gained control over Macau and Hong Kong.

20: In 1991 after the death of it's popular monarch, the Kingdom of Yugoslavia descended into civil war between nationalist rebels seeking independence, Serbian communists and Yugoslav royalists, immediately destabilizing the European continent and threatening to spark another war between the Entente and the Comintern as the two sides supported their preferred proxies with weapons and foreign fighters. The brutal fighting raged until 1996 when a Hungarian SAM shot down a Romanian military cargo aircraft carrying weapons to the Yugoslav communists who were in control of Serbia. The incident soon spiraled out of control as German border troops exchanged small-arms and mortar fire with their Slovak and Polish counterparts with general mobilization soon being ordered in several countries. Europe would surely have been bloodied by a Third Great War if not for a joint Sino-Columbian offer to mediate in the LoN luckily managed to de-escalate the tension enough to avoid an all-out war. Instead, Yugoslavia was officially broken up, with the democratic republics of Slovenia, Croatia, and Herzeg-Bosnia joining the Entente while communist Serbia joined the Comintern.

21: In 2001 the Western Hemisphere was shaken from it's slumber by the 9/11 attacks against Columbia. Highlighting the rise of international jihadist terrorism previously largely confined to the Middle-East and in a lesser degree Central Asia and the Indian Subcontinent, one of the most important centers of these many movements was Taliban-ruled Afghanistan, which Columbia proceeded to invade the very same year, quickly overthrowing the Taliban regime and occupying the country. Despite the rapid occupation of the country, Columbian forces and those of their Golden Circle allies soon found themselves embroiled in a long, costly guerilla war in Afghanistan's harsh terrain. The War in Afghanistan did however lead to improved relations between the Golden Circle and the Comintern as the two blocks cooperated against cross-border terrorist networks operating in both Afghanistan and Turkestan. The Comprehensive Treaty on Cooperation was signed by representatives of the GC and Comintern in 2008, leading to improved trade relations between the two, but was also exploited by the USSR to gradually glean advanced Columbian technology and attempt to reverse-engineer it. Although the Columbian government has recently been trying to prevent this and hopes to renegotiate its trade agreements with the USSR. In the early 2000's Egypt's policy of settlement and arabization in southern Sudan and Darfur, designed to ease the overpopulation pressure in it's heartland along the Nile backfired hard, with various African Christian and animist groups taking up arms and starting the insurgencies which have plagued Sudan and Darfur since.

22: By 2010, a combination of internal pressures and dissatisfaction with their authoritarian states along with the adverse economic effects of the 2008 Financial Crisis led to widespread protests erupting in a wide variety of Middle-Eastern states, however, the situation was the worst in the United Arab Republic which had risen after baathist revolutionaries overthrew the Hashemite Sharif in the 1950's. The UAR collapsed after attempted crackdowns spiraled out of control when some units refused to open fire on the demonstrators which had gathered in the UAR's major cities and instead defected. The UAR soon collapsed in a multi-factional civil war in 2014, pitting the regimes loyalists, Hashemite restorationists, Shias, Kurdish communists, Maronites and Sunni Wahhabis against each other in a bloody quagmire of a war that still rages to this very day with the great powers of the world deeply involved as they attempt to back up their preferred proxies and gain more influence in this strategic part of the world. Perhaps most importantly, it saw Egypt, now stuck fighting insurgents in the South and with a war to the East shift to a hard-power based foreign policy and quickly building up a capable domestic arms industry with the goal of defense autarky.




Major Global Alliances

The Golden Circle: A military and economic alliance built by and centered around the UASC. It consists of nations in the greater Columbian sphere of influence dating all the way back to the time of Columbian expansion in the 19'th and early 20'th centuries. While the Golden Circle is seen across the world as the premier bastion of democracy and freedom in the world, it cannot be denied that the UASC is the unquestioned, dominating leader of the Golden Circle and the alliance is often simply seen as an extension of the United American States themselves, given the vast level of economic and political influence that Columbia has over the member-states. The membership of the Golden Circle consists of Columbia, New Hibernia, Nordbight, the Bahamas, Mexico, Cuba, Hispaniola, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Gran Colombia, Ecuador, Liberia and the Philippines.

The Entente Cordiale: A military and economic alliance centered on the United Anglois Kingdom, the German Empire and the Kingdom of Italy along with other Western European nations and former European colonies. It began as an Anglois-German-Italian alliance opposed to the Austro-Hungarian and Russian Empires which it fought in the First Great War but now it is mostly aimed against the Soviet Union and Comintern which it fought in the Second Great War. The EC is largely made up of the centrist/rightist-leaning constitutional monarchies and democracies in Europe alongside a number of democratic ex-colonies in Africa. The EC consists of Anglois, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Herzeg-Bosnia, Albania, Greece, Australasia, Senegal, Mali, Dendi, Damagaram, Dahomey, Yorubaland, Biafra, Sokoto, Azawad, Chad, Ouaddi, Ubangi, Ovamboland, Tanzania, Uganda and Madagascar.

COMINTERN: A military and economic alliance built by and centered around the Soviet Union to defend and progress the revolution, it stands primarily against it's western rival the Entente ever since the two alliances fought the Second Great War which broke out as the Comintern attempted to intervene in the German Civil War, tensions between the two alliances have somewhat eased with the passage of decades but still very much remain. The Comintern is heavily dominated by the Soviet Union and all of it's member-states are governed by authoritarian communist regimes. Indeed, having an authoritarian left-wing government is a requirement for joining the alliance. While most Comintern states follow some type of Market Socialist economic policy, some prefer greater economic centralization. Many people simply consider the Comintern to be an extension of the Soviet Union, especially given the various integration deals signed between its members. It's members are the Soviet Union, Poland, Slovakia-Moravia, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Kurdistan, Turkestan, Mongolia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Somalia.

Shanghai Cooperation Organization: A military and economic alliance built by and centered around China. While various powers quickly began trying to court China after the end of the Pacific War and the subsequent Sino-Columbian Split, an embittered, depressed Chiang spurned them all. The peace deal ending the war in the Pacific was seen as a grave betrayal by Chiang Kai-Shek, who was now more suspicious than ever of foreign powers that had long subjugated China by unfair treaties and forced concessions. The result of this policy was the eventual formation of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization after the fall of the Dai Li regime. Given that China is the worlds largest economy measured by purchasing power parity, the member-states of the SCO have largely been completely sucked into China's economic orbit. The members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization are China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Pakistan.

The Greater East-Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere: The GEACPS is the final remnant of the once expansive Showa Japanese Empire that exploded out across the Asia-Pacific region before falling to the overwhelming Columbian onslaught. The GEACPS only has three members which are essentially projections of Japan itself with their governments run by corrupt pro-Japanese politicians. With a looming China above it which seems to only be growing it's power year in order to assert Chinese hegemony over Asia, it seems that Japan and the Sphere need to reach out and find new allies in the region. Only a truly remarkable Japanese leader could make sure that the GEACPS survives next few decades. It's only members are the Empire of Japan, the Reorganized Republic of China and the Protected Republic of Korea.

Joint Defense Treaty of South Asia: A military and economic alliance built by India, in the 1980's in panicked response to it's encirclement by the SCO, soon drawing in other nations fearing China's growing power and control. While most of it's members are economically intertwined with India, Indonesia has been pursuing a more independent foreign policy than other members such as Bengal or Nepal, striking bilateral deals with Austrialasia and recently a comprehensive trade agreement with the Empire of Japan and greater Co-Prosperity Sphere. While it's main goal is the counteract China, the JDSA is also wary of any signs of Comintern expansion southward as the Russians seem to have a hard time abandoning the dream of a port in the far south. The JDSA's members are India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bengal, the Maldives and Indonesia.

Minor Global Alliances

The Kalmar Union: Formed in the late 19'th century in the wake of the Prussian-Danish War, it saw the economic, military and political integration of Scandinavia. Today, the Kalmar Union is much more than a mutual defense alliance or economic bloc, it has become a supranational political organization with it's own parliament in the Swedish city of Kalmar, it has it's own central bank in the same city which administers the Scandinavian Krona, the block's common currency and it has an integrated command and control system for the national militaries of it's members. The Kalmar Union is deeply committed to a policy of armed neutrality in Europe and has prospered greatly during and after the Second Great War by equally trading with both the Entente and Comintern, skillfully maneuvering European politics. Most analysts believe that by mid-century, the Kalmar Union will transform into a single Nordic state. It's members are Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

The Rio Pact: Formed under Brazilian leadership with Entente backing, the Rio Pact is an alliance of South American democracies unbeholden to the UASC and it's Golden Circle. With the Entente nations of Anglois and Germany helping bankroll many of Brazil's most important infrastructural projects, the country, and thus the alliance built on it is heavily reliant on the Entente Cordiale due to the amount of debt it owes to Paris and Berlin. Without this financial support, the Brazilian economy would falter if not significantly reformed. The Rio Pact stands against the Argentinian-led Latin American Alliance, a group of authoritarian right-wing nationalist regimes backed by China and the SCO. The members of the Rio Pact are Brazil, Uruguay and Chile.

Latin American Alliance: Built by Argentina with Chinese support, the Latin American alliance is composed of three South American nationalist regimes trying to further their goals in the region and counteract the Rio Pact. Recently the LAA and Rio Pact have been involved in a brutal proxy war in Paraguay while on the homefront, Chinese capital floats most of the LAA's economic projects and ambitions. The members of the Latin American Alliance are Argentina, Bolivia and Peru.

The State of the World


The Americas: The Americas are almost as two worlds apart, the Golden Circle dominates North and Central America. The UASC has enforced stability from the cold arctic to the tropical rainforests of Gran Colombia in the south after driving the European empires from what the Columbians considered to be their backyard. Developing in peace under the Columbian aegis, the nations of the Golden Circle, protected by oceans on both sides grew and prospered into wealthy, developed democratic nations with strong institutions, strongly tied to the GC’s hegemonic power, the United American States of Columbia. While general peace and prosperity rule the North and Center, when one gets south of the Gran Colombian border, things begin to change. The Rio Pact and Latin American Alliance are engaged in their own little cold war that splits the vast lands in the southern hemisphere in two. The largest point of contention in South America is the ongoing civil war that rages in Paraguay between democratic forces based in Caaguazú and the authoritarian nationalist forces based in Filadelfia. The war has raged for ten years with little progress made on either side as the two respective alliances continue to pour resources into this continental proxy war. The old Capital of Asunción lays in ruins after the harshest part of the war ravaged it during the first three years. Now, the unofficial boundary of control between the two sides lies at the Rio Paraguay, providing a natural buffer that makes gaining superiority for either side that much harder. Only time will tell who comes out on top, and how much longer the factions are willing to keep the fight only a proxy war. With Gran Colombia seeing waves of refugees arriving at its border, there is a risk that Maracaibo will try to shift Columbias attention away from Asia, back to its South American periphery, all while the benefactors of the Rio Pact and LAA, namely the Entente and SCO respectively could be drawn in should the might of the Golden Circle push to end the conflict on the GC’s terms.

Europe: Europe in 2020 is divided in two, much like it was 75 years ago. In the west, the sound of freedom and tradition roars, as this contains the three main members of the Entente Cordiale, the United Anglois Kingdom, the Kingdom of Italy, and the German Empire. Keen on preserving the old order in the European Continent, they face off against the juggernaut to the East, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and its sister-states in the Comintern. Europe remains divided behind the Iron Curtain, but there are holes in the walls. To the north lies the Scandinavian Kalmar Union, once little more than a defensive alliance consisting of the Kingdoms of Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. It has gradually grown into a supranational union between the three nations, with it's own parliament, a joint currency and joint military command. Committed to maintaining strict neutrality in the mess of European affairs, they have managed to escape the damage of the Cold War in Europe, and enrich themselves by trading with both sides, for the moment. South of Anglois lies another hole, Iberia and Occitane. Both kingdoms have managed to stay neutral from the affairs of its northern neighbor, despite consistent attempts to pull them into the Entente. With Occitaine increasingly pulled into the counterinsurgency operations in it's former colonies alongside the Anglois, the two have recently grown closer as the shared enemy has opened the path for closer cooperation. In the Balkans, the aftermath of the Yugoslav War is keenly felt in the Albanian nationalist insurgency seeking to detach western Kosovo from Serbia while in Herzeg-Bosnia, Serbian communists fight to detach the Srpska region and join it to the the Serbian People's Republic as the two blocks square off in this proxy conflict. Beyond the Balkans, the eyes of Europe look to the German Empire where the issue of military spending and defense reforms dominate the conversation, with the universal conscription system growing unpopular among the German populace. This is in contrast to the powerful Prussian lobby dominating much of the right-of-center in German politics who hope to raise military spending, especially in light of recent developments in the East. The Soviet Union has significantly reduced the number of troops in the Red Army since the 1990's, however, military spending remains high, which has resulted in a wide-scale modernization of the Soviet Red Army, with increasing numbers of new systems being shown off on parade or in leaked photos as well as increased Soviet activity in cyberspace all while Italy is getting itself tied deeper and deeper into the quagmires in the Middle-East and around the Horn of Africa.

Asia-Pacific: More people live on the western rim of the Pacific Ocean than anywhere else in the world. Since the economic reforms in China after the ousting of Dai Li from power in 1968 saw massive relocation of industry to China, particularly from the UASC, seeing Columbian industry taking a loss. lately, Washington has wanted to get even by forcing China to open itself to Columbian goods and services in exchange for continued access to Columbian markets. The problem is that this would profoundly weaken the Chinese economy which could even weaken the legitimacy of the KMT in the eyes of the Chinese public. Thusly, China cannot simply give in to the Columbian demands without abandoning the foundation behind decades of growth and prosperity which propelled the Republic of China to the position of second largest economy in the world. Should no resolution be found, it seems like the RoC and UASC will begin a process of economic divorce. This is on top of the existing tensions between China and the Comintern, as China has long sought to annex Mongolia while ripping Vietnam and Cambodia out of the Soviet alliance. Stopping concrete action on this goal is Chinese dependency on Soviet agricultural and energy imports while Chinese investment is greatly helps driving the economy in the Soviet Far East, making the two rivals deeply linked economically. Still, the Chinese very much have tricks up their sleeve. Nanjing is likely to reduce taxes, offer subsidies, expand infrastructure and ease up on regulations to boost internal consumption and economic activity in the private sector as well as pursuing bilateral trade agreements with other nations. China is also becoming ever more assertive in the South China Sea, militarizing islands and greatly expanding their air and naval capabilities, leading to Columbia undertaking regular freedom of navigation operation in the water off of Golden Circle ally, the Philippines. It has also seen a response from the Soviet Union in the form of sizable military aid packages to Cambodia and Vietnam, with Vietnam even receiving two S-400 batteries. Out of the regional nations, the Empire of Japan is the one with the greatest political will to resist the Chinese to uphold what is left of it's once great empire. In this, it seems to have made an unlikely ally in the USSR, trade between the two has increased steadily and three top visits between the nations leader have occurred over the last decade all while Japan continues militarizing itself and it's two satellite-states. In the backdrop of the Sino-Columbian trade war, the nations of Southeast Asia stand ready to absorb the Columbian companies moving their business out of the ROC. The Chinese hope that their allies such as Thailand, Myanmar and Laos will soak up most of the lost business while the Comintern bets on Vietnam. With all nations in the region touting their specialties, such as textiles and electronic components for Vietnam and automobiles for Thailand and Indonesia. At the same time, India is facing a general election in the middle of it's rivalry with China, and most importantly, Chinese ally Pakistan. Indian policymakers want to counter China's growing power but the fact remains that New Dehli cannot go head-to-head with Nanjing, it simply lacks the economic, military and diplomatic resources, forcing India to look for members for the JDSA. Meanwhile in Afghanistan, representatives from the UASC, Pakistan, China and Afghanistan as well as the Taliban are working on a peace deal years in the making.

Middle-East: The Middle-East has vast wealth, not least in the black gold beneath it's sands and in treasures such as the Suez Canal which have turned the Red Sea into one of the most important global trade arteries seeing vast amounts of trade as well as the majority of oil imports going to Western Europe. It is by no means a coincidence that foreign powers are setting up shop in the region with the Entente, SCO and JDSA and Comintern are all active there. Over the last decade the Middle East has collapsed into war and unrest. The United Arab Republic is no more, once seen as a great, pro-Chinese juggernaut looming in the region and viable contender for dominance with Egypt, it's fragile internal mosaic shattered in 2014 and the country spiraled into a multi-factional civil war pitting the regimes loyalists support by China, Maronites and Hashemite restorationists supported by Italy, Kurdish communists supported by the Comintern and Sunni Wahhabis allegedly funded by Saudi Arabia against each other. The situation is perhaps worse still in Yemen which has been locked in a relentlessly brutal civil war just as long while famine and disease sweep the land, there are over a dozen factions battling for power but the main contenders are the Iran-backed rebels who have taken control of the western heartland, banishing the government to the sparsely populated east. Outnumbered and outgunned, the government brokered a deal with Italy for aid, resulting in a stalemate. On the small island of Mayyun off of Yemen's southwestern coast, satellite images show construction work on mysterious airbase that nobody has claimed responsibility for with Yemen claiming they have made no agreement to let any state establish bases on it's territory and has accused Italian vessels transporting weapons and materials of starting the construction project while alleging that Rome has demanded the Yemeni government sign a lease agreement for the island. Mayyun is a strategic prize and ships carrying more than 3 million barrels of oil into the Mediterranean travel within eyesight of the island. A base would allow Italy to better control the northward flow of Middle-Eastern oil. To make things worse, Yemen's sovereignty is being eroded in Socotra as well. Socotra is an island like no other, a shelter for unique relic-species extinct in the rest of the world. Yet it is the island's location that grabs attention. Since 2017, Somalia and the USSR has moved to the island in force, using humanitarian aid to establish their hold in the wake of severe floods and storms. The Soviets and Somalis have set up an aid and reconstruction program on the island resulting in life improving for some islanders since the Comintern arrived, infrastructure has improved, salaries have grown. Still in 2019 the USSR was lambasted in international environmentalist circles when images surfaced of Soviet companies bulldozing a nature reserve to establish hotel resorts and tourist facilities. The same year, Somalia deployed a full brigade of troops to the island without permission from the Yemeni government and proceeded to disarm the local garrison before raising the Somali flag over government buildings. For all intents and purposes, Socotra remains under Somali control. strengthening Comintern power-projection in the Horn of Africa. In the middle of the chaos of war, the Sultanate of Egypt, once hailed as a great force for progress in the region similar to Morocco is being best by it's own problems. The looming overpopulation crisis in the country's heartland and the failed settlement and Arabization policy in South Sudan backfired tremendously, sparking the Sudanese and Darfuri insurgencies in which African Christian and Animist communities have taken up arms to fight. With an insurgency in it's deep south and war raging in the east. Egypt has seen centralization of power and the development of a modern, powerful military industrial complex at the cost of it's former soft power and constitutionalist credentials with more and more power centralized in the hands of the Sultan as Egyptian soldiers with new modern weapons are replacing the silver-tounged Egyptian diplomats of the previous decades.

Africa: The great continent of Africa stands independent of European colonialism, though in many places, this independence doesn’t extend far beyond the coloring on the world map. European companies have deep ties with African economies in their former colonies, especially in the case of the Anglois and the Germans as well as Italy’s monopolization of Libya's oil. While Africa managed to avoid the chaos that gripped Asia after decolonization thanks to the measured power-transition policies of the colonial powers Africa sees it’s fair share of issues, foremost among these is a great demographic youth bulge, which many believe will lead to explosive population growth through the century which can very well double the continents population by the end of the century, that is a growth so rapid that economic growth will not be able to keep up. This has led to the slow, steady growth of political populism among the youth. While not reaching a critical mass yet, the “Young Africa Movement” has the potential to shake up the existing political elites in many African states. In other parts of the continent, things are going worse. In the Sahel, a transnational network of Jihadist militants are battling the governments of Azawad, Toubouland, Chad, Sokoto and Damagaram with fighting routinely spilling over into Mali, Yorubaland and Biafra and drawing in the region’s former colonial overlords, namely the Anglois and the Occitanians. In Egypt, the catastrophic backfire to the failed policy of arabization in the country’s southern territories has led to a violent insurgency. African christian and animist communities have radicalized and taken up arms against Cairo. Egypt, once seen as a great beacon of stable constitutional monarchism in the Arab world has centralized more power in the hands of the monarchy and military, reintroduced mandatory religious education in elementary school and used it’s position as Africa’s largest economy to build a capable, advanced military-industrial complex in what can only be described as record time. The Sultanate of Egypt seems to have abandoned soft power for hard power. In the southern end of the continent the Cape Republic and Batu State are locked in their bitter enmity. The Cape seems incapable of recovering economically due to the ongoing low-level insurgency and its distance from the major global trade routes. Emigration is increasing in volume year by year while the totalitarian, Bantu ultranationalist regime in Egoli, formerly Johannesburg is being kept afloat with Chinese money after nearly bankrupting itself in the early 2000’s. This gives China an increasing foothold in Africa, and the Bantu State resources to perhaps one day reunite South Africa under its banner.

The Soviet Red Army Ground Forces are structured around a Front - Division - Brigade structure after the 2007 Soviet Military Reforms, moving away from the old District - Division - Regiment system to a more flexible organization, especially in it's abandonment of the single-arm Regiments and replacing them with Brigade. The Soviet Brigade is a 4500-man unit with organic full-spectrum combined arms support, featuring artillery, air-defense, engineering support and other service and support units. The Soviet Airborne Forces or VDV consist of 10 divisions who, along with the Red Army Navy's Naval Infantry form the basis of the USSR's rapid reaction forces for international deployments and power-projection. The VDV is well known for it's mobility, utilizing a range of specialist airborne warfare vehicles and is a fully mechanized force with a larger complement of heavy weaponry than most contemporary airborne forces. Alongside the SRANNI and SRAGF Guards divisions, the VDV is made up exclusively of full-time professional soldiers whereas the remainder of the SRA is made up of mixed units where professionals and conscripts serve side by side.

Major foreign military suppliers - The USSR has a large domestic military-industrial complex but has on occasion purchased equipment from other Comintern states, primarily Poland and Czechoslovakia.

Extra military information - In addition to the regular branches of the Soviet Red Army there are the Red Army Strategic Rocket Forces and the Red Guard. The Strategic Rocket Force consists of 120 000 troops who are tasked with operating the Soviet ballistic missile arsenal, nuclear arsenal as well as the strategic ABM defenses and space assets such as satellites. The Red Guard on the other hand are a paramilitary force of 400 000 part-time volunteer soldiers, forming part of the country's defense and deterrence system. They are intended to support the Red Army in protection of public authorities, critical facilities and communications in case of attack, maintaining safety and security on their respective territories in peace and wartime and form the core of resistance or guerrilla groups in Soviet territory should it be captured by the enemy. The 6 Spetznas Brigades of the Soviet Union are technically not counted as parts of the Soviet Red Army but as parts of the NKVD, falling under the NKVD's Special Operations Directorate. Since 2007, a significant a wide-ranging modernization effort has been undertaken by the USSR seeing the wide-scale implementation of the Ratnik Program for the infantry and wide-ranging upgrades of it's vehicle fleet alongside the rollout of the Armata Universal Combat Platform and introduction of 5'th Generation aircraft in the SRAAF. It has seen the increase of technology-intensive elements such as surface-to-air missiles and electronic warfare units which have all experienced rapid expansion. The latest operational doctrine of the SRAGF highlights the importance of information technology, electronic and information warfare, and long-range precision strikes in future warfare. The older generation telephone/radio-based C3-systems are being replaced by an integrated battlefield information networks featuring local/wide-area networks, satellite communications, UAV-based surveillance and reconnaissance systems, and mobile command and control centers. The Soviet Red Army is legally obliged to follow the principle of civilian control of the military, although in practical terms this principle has been implemented in such a way as to ensure the SRA is under the absolute control of the Soviet Communist Party. Its Commander in Chief is the General Secretary of the Soviet Union. Unsurprisingly, the USSR keeps military bases in the various COMINTERN member-states. In total, the USSR spends 242 billion USD on it's armed forces, the equivalent of 3.3% of GDP.

A number of projects that were implemented in this timeline that weren't IRL.
The MiG-33 - developed in the 1980's and 1990's as a complementary combat aircraft to the MiG-29. The MiG-33 is a short-range, point-defense fighter and an ideal fighter for friendly states on a budget.
The SU S-37 - a single-engine, single-seat canard-delta multirole fighter. Intended to combine the ground attack and air-to-air role with an emphasis on the first role.
The Yak-43 is a thing.
The MiG-37 Ferret - 5'th Gen Soviet Stealth interceptor/precision strike fighter, entering service alongside the SU 57.
Kamov KA-50 - Tandem-rotor heavy transport helicopter, later developed into the Kamov KA-102, Chinook-equivalent.
The Kherson-class LHD - 5 in service.
The Ulyanovsk-class Carrier - 2 in service.
Lider-Class Destroyers - 4 in service (20 planned)

GDP - 7.33 Trillion USD
GDP per Capita - 23 125 USD
Currency - Soviet Ruble
Major import/export partners - China / Columbia / Japan / Comintern States / Various neutral state (Primarily Anatolia and the Scandinavian states)

Public Goals - Engage in sustainable economic growth by developing the domestic economy / Promote International Trade / Develop the Soviet Union into a major world power in science and technology / Improve living standards and reduce economic disparity / Invest in national security and defense / Uphold commitments to Comintern allies.
Private Goals - Support Communist insurgents in Bosnia and the UAR / Crush insurgencies in Kosovo and Turkestan / Limit Chinese inroads into Mongolia, Vietnam and Cambodia / Uphold hegemony over the Comintern / Contain the Entente / Expand Soviet influence in the world
Major Domestic Issues - Widespread corruption in the CPSU / Large economic disparity between different regions / Dilapidated infrastructure in poorer areas / Environmental Degradation
Major Foreign Issues - The Entente / The SCO / Afghanistan / Socotra / Albanian insurgents in Serbian Kosovo and Jihadists in Turkestan

History

Formed in 1919 after the fall of the Russian Empire in the fires of the First Great War, the USSR emerged as the first Communist state in the world under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin. When Lenin died in January 1927 Nikolai Bukharin rose to power in the USSR attempting to cultivate his image as Lenin's legitimate successor. Still, the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was split along three major ideological fault-lines left unresolved since Lenin's days and stood divided into the Trotskyist radicals, the Bukharinist conservatives and the Stalinist hardliners. This split resulted in a vicious power-struggle in the Kremlin that lasted for years and paralyzed the Soviet Government. This paralysis ended in 1928 when Nikolai Bukharin managed to strike a deal with the moderate wing of the Stalinists, bringing a number of Stalin's former close associates, primarily Lazar Kaganovich and Vyascheslav Molotov over to his side, perhaps due to them fearing Stalin's growing paranoia. This united Stalinist-Bukharinist wing was powerful enough to seize control of the party and the state. Bukharin then used his control over the NKVD through Yagoda and Yezhov to purge several thousand hardline Stalinists while Stalin himself died in... mysterious circumstances. A new government emerged, with Nikolai Bukharin as General Secretary and Lazar Kaganovich as Premier at it's head. Other key figures of the Bukharin Regime were Vyascheslav Molotov, Mikhail Kaganovich, Sergei Kirov, Lev Kamenev, Alexey Rykov and Mikhail Tomsky. The government immediately began with re-writing the Soviet Constitution, adding the so-called "Three Pillars of Governance" this literally constitutionalized the rule of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union over the country. Other changes were made as well, such as the re-definition of the Soviet Union from a federal state to a unitary state and the removal of all references to class-struggle from the document, a move seen by later historians as the point of the transformation for the CPSU from a revolutionary vanguard party to a governing party. Borders were also re-drawn. With northern Kazakhstan being annexed directly into the Russian SFSR while the rest of the USSR's Central Asian territories were organized into a new state under a Communist puppet-government, seeing the official birth of the People's Federation of Turkestan.

The Bukharin Regime invested in the expansion of the Red Army along with adopting the Measured Industrialization Policy, a more limited version of the Five-Year Plan strategy first proposed by Stalin. However a large portion of the government's yearly investment funds remained allocated to Bukharin's grand vision for the USSR, the long-term Siberian Plan. While the Soviet leadership considered traditional Russian village life reactionary and backward, there was no significant support for forced collectivization in the government after Stalin's fall, leading to Lenin's "Lead by Example" policy established under the NEP continuing under Bukharin. Instead, Bukharin's vision of the future Soviet countryside was through the construction of new planned villages and transformation of old ones, with more access to modern amenities and the melding of local and Party authorities to gradually further the ideology in rural areas. The construction of hundreds upon hundreds of such new planned villages and towns around newly established farms and rail-lines in the West Siberian Czernozem Belt, North Kazakh Czernozem Belt and the Siberian Chestnut Soil Belt between the Ob river and Lake Baikal was the greatest undertaking in the USSR between roughly 1930 and 1940. The construction of these settlements and new farms resulted in a mass-increase in land-cultivation and food production while easing the rural overpopulation issues plaguing in the Soviet heartland west of the Urals where rapid population growth drove peasants into smaller and smaller plots of land. At the same time, many of the important heavy industry investments made under first Five-Year Plan were made east of the Urals as a complement to the Siberian Plan, such as the construction of Magnitogorsk, the development of mining and steel production in the Donbass and Kuzbass,. the Chelyabinsk, Tyumen and Novosibirsk Tractor Factories built on the model of the Volgograd Tractor Factory alongside aircraft production in Irkutst, Chita and Komsomolsk na Amure, Electrotechnical industries in Leningrad and arms production in Kharkov and Tula. Soviet cities grew and saw the flourishing of the Socialist Classicist style championed by Stalin and continuing under Bukharin. One of the most lasting and drastic effects of the Siberian Plan resulted in the wide-ranging Russification and Slavization of Northern Kazakhstan at the expense of the native population which was often deported, either into reservations or to Uzbek-dominated Turkestan where the mass-influx of people led to a famine in the north east of the country. The Siberian Plan did turn Western Siberia, South-Central Siberia and the Circumbaikal into secondary Russian heartlands, though what befell the native Kazaks in northern Kazakhstan has in some circles been described as an outright genocide.

As the shockwaves of the Berlin Stock Market Crash hit the Soviet Union, Leon Trotsky saw the crisis as evidence that Capitalism was collapsing and now was the time to spearhead the World Revolution. Initially dismissive of the criticism, Bukharin disregarded it but as the government's opponents grew bolder and their criticism grew more fervent, Bukharin struck back, perhaps encouraged by Kaganovich and Kirov more than anything else which led to the Soviet Purges beginning in 1937. Trotsky himself fled the country into exile in China. His closest allies, including Zinoviev and Kamenev were sentenced to death for conspiring with Trotsky to overthrow the government while Trotsky himself was sentenced to death in absentia. The remaining Stalinists who had not come over to the Bukharinist wing were also faced with repressions such as expulsion from the Party while Bulganin, Zhdanov and a few of the most prominent Stalinist dissidents were sentenced to prison. While initially limited, the Purges later spread which led to thousands of Party members and civil servants deemed "unreliable" as well as tens of thousands of ordinary people being arrested and sentenced to hard labor in the NKVD's "Corrective Labor Camps", more commonly known as Gulags. At the same time the USSR exploited the unrest in the wake of the Great Depression to extend it's influence in Europe, bringing Poland and Romania into the Comintern after the countries fell to communist revolutions while supporting communist forces in the German Civil War. By 1939 the Soviet Union started flexing it's military muscles with the invasion of Finland and subsequent Winter War which, while ending in Soviet victory, did so only after the Red Army suffered an embarrassing amount of casualties against a much smaller enemy, Bukharin, outraged, purged almost 3000 Soviet officers, including marshal Voroshilov who initially commanded the forces invading Finland. In 1941, the Soviet Union was pulled into the Second Great War when Polish leader Boleslaw Bierut finally managed to convince Bukharin to support a direct intervention in the Germany as communist forces seemed on the verge of defeat. The Second Great War would last until 1945 and lead to a remarkably fast development of the Soviet military-industrial complex. The T-34 and GZ (KV) and NB (IS) tanks made a name for themselves during the heavy fighting, but in the end, the Second Great War produced no clear victor. Still, many considered it a Comintern victory. While failing to install Paul Levi's communists in Berlin, Poland expanded significantly, Slovakia-Moravia was formed and a communist regime was forcibly installed in Bulgaria after Comintern forces overran the country. During the immediate post-war period, the Soviet Union once more focused it's resources toward domestic development, but also military development as lingering tensions in Europe between the Comintern and Entente remained high and both sides expected another, decisive conflict to erupt in a few years time.

Continuation of the Siberian Plan and Measured Industrialization Plan alongside increasing trade with the Comintern, China and Columbia expanded the Soviet economy. The post-war economic boom saw the rise of many Soviet landmarks now known across the world, perhaps most famously the Revolutionary Father Lenin statue in Leningrad alongside the Palace of Soviets and Victory Arch in Moscow which were part of the large urban reconstruction project that completely changed the face of the Soviet capital. After Nikolai Bukharin's death in 1958, Nikita Khrushchev, a former NKVD frontline Commissar and among the most distinguished soldiers who fought in the Battle of Danzig rose to power as General Secretary of the Soviet Union, keeping Kaganovich as his Premier, the Khrushchev Regime presided over a period of liberalization in the Soviet Union. The Special Tribunals operated by Bukharin Era security agencies were abolished. Under the new reforms, no prosecution for a political crime could be brought even in the regular courts unless approved by the local Party committee. Almost 500 000 political prisoners still imprisoned in the gulags were released and much of the camp-system was dismantled. Under Khrushchev a modest amount of liberalization in the arts occurred as well along with liberalization of travel laws. As a result, over 700 000 Soviets traveled as tourists abroad in 1963 alone. The most significant change would be economic however. Appointing Alexei Kosygin as People's Minister of Development alongside Khrushchev's focus on what he would call the "Four Areas of Progress", namely those of agriculture, industry, science and technology, and the military. Khrushchev saw this as the continuation of Marxist-Leninist-Bukharinist State Capitalist model. Holding to the idea that that the duty of the Party was to perfect what Khrushchev called "Socialism adapted to Soviet Realities". The Khrushchev Regime enacted a number of economic reforms, liberalizing the economy and privatizing a number of large state-owned monopolies while investing in industry and agriculture alike. Khrushchev would enact the Farmers Market Initiative as an extension of Lenin's Lead by Example strategy. The Farmers Market Initiative led to significant growth in agricultural production, rural incomes and a sharp reduction in rural poverty as farmer's saw their private plots expanded while many price-controls on foodstuffs were abolished. This came with a sharp reduction in production quotas which allowed farmers and kholkhozesa alike to sell their surplus at fully free prices. Khrushchev's time in power also saw the finishing of the reconstruction of Moscow started by Bukharin and the breakdown of Sino-Soviet relations over an impasse on the status of Mongolia. Mounting tensions would finally lead to the Vietnam War after the newly formed Communist state in Vietnam refused to sign a wide-ranging integration agreement with the RoC leading to the Vietnam War where the USSR supported Ho Chi Minh's VPA against the Chinese, forcing them to retreat from the country along with the fast-track admission of Vietnam and Cambodia into the Comintern after the war, deepening the rift between the USSR and China.

In 1971, Khrushchev would die and was replaced by the "Eternal Premier" Lazar Kaganovich, who now rose to take Khrushchev's place as General Secretary. The Kaganovich regime reintroduced state control in some sectors of the economy that were relaxed under the Khrushchev Regime and was also deeply conservative with political reforms. Still, Kaganovich did not abandon the foundation of the previous economic policies of his predecessors and presided over more than a decade of consistent economic growth and development. Kaganovich sought to improve socio-economic equality domestically, aiming to build what he called a "Harmonious Socialist Society" that was prosperous and free of social strife. Under his leadership Soviet authorities cracked down hard on social disturbances, ethnic minority protests, and brutally repressed dissident figures. In foreign policy, Kaganovich did promote East-West trade, tried but largely failed to de-escalate tensions in Europe in the backdrop of the Ogaden War and opened greater trade-ties particularly with Columbia as well as supporting nuclear arms regulation and signing the Nuclear Weapons Control Treaty in 1973. He was however also uncompromising when it came to upholding Soviet influence and Communist governments in the wider world. This eventually led to the Kaganovich Regime being responsible for bogging the Soviet Union down in the quagmire that was the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan between between 1973 and 1981 in order to prop up the failing communist regime ruling the country as Kaganovich feared the possibility of a fundamentalist Salafist regime being established that would expand to export radical Islam into the People's Federation of Turkestan right on the Soviet doorstep. With the final fall of the Afghan communist regime in 1981, Kaganovich did the unexpected and resigned from all his official positions, living a quiet life in Yalta until he died in 1991, the last of the Old Bolsheviks to pass away.

Rising to power after Kaganovich was a young up-and-coming refomer, Mikhail Gorbachev who proceeded to liberalize the economy, arts and media as well as passing a number of social reforms while continuing to pour money into the special economic zones established by Khrushchev. While seeing significant economic growth, specially in some areas of the country more then others. Gorbachev is most credited for momentarily mending ties with China after Dai Li's death as well as embarking on a large modernization effort of the Soviet Red Army in the wake of the Afghanistan War. However, Gorbachev was later replaced by Alexander Rutskoy in 1996 after retiring under pressure from a growing wing of the CPSU who deemed that his reforms had been far too wide-ranging and were upset at his handling of the Yugoslav War. As Gorbachev retired, Rutskoy inherited a Soviet Union rampant with political corruption and regional wealth gaps. Stock markets fluctuated greatly in the wake of Gorbachev's reforms and little was being done to address an ever-increasing urban-rural wealth gap. Official reports put the figure on the percentage of Soviet GDP being moved and abused by corrupt officials at around 10%, a chaotic environment of illegal bonds issued by civil and military officials resulted in much of the corrupted wealth vanishing and then reappearing in foreign tax-havens. Organized crime in the form of the Russian Mafia re-emerged and began to plague major cities while a careless stance on the destruction of the environment furthered concerns voiced by some intellectuals. Rutskoy's biggest aim in the economy was stability, and he believed that a stable government with highly centralized power would be a prerequisite. He reintroduced state control in some sectors of the economy that were relaxed by the previous administration, and rolled back a number of Gorbachev's political reforms while proceeding to enlarge and extend the NKVD to fight organized crime and corruption while embarking on a comprehensive reform program for the Soviet Red Army based on it's experiences fighting so close to the Columbians since the 2001 Columbian Invasion of Afghanistan. Rutskoy also made his own contribution to the ideology of Soviet Communism with the so-called Inner Development Outlook, a response to what he saw as the "moral degeneracy and money-grubbing" of Soviet society under Gorbachev. The Inner Development Outlook stressed the improvement of the people's "ideological and moral quality", "scientific and cultural quality" and health quality.

Rutskoy stepped down and was replaced by Gennady Zyuganov in 2012. Since assuming power, Zyuganov has introduced far-ranging measures to enforce party discipline and impose internal unity while strengthening censorship, including censorship of the internet within the USSR. The Zyuganov regime has been criticized for this increase of censorship and mass surveillance in the Soviet Union and the cult of personality he constructed around himself since entering office with books, cartoons, pop songs and even dance routines honoring his rule. The village of Mymrino - Oryol Oblast where Zyuganov was born has become a "modern-day shrine" decorated with Communist propaganda and murals extolling the formative years of his life. Since 2013, the CPSU has created two "Central Commissariats" under Zyuganov's leadership, namely the Central Commissariat of Internet Security and Socialist Informatization and Central Commissariat of Defense and Security Affairs which has let Zyuganov consolidate a great deal of personal control over national security and digital affairs. Zyuganov has been voicing support for the USSR's state-owned enterprises while also supporting the country's private sector since entering office. Under his regime it has made it easier for banks to issue mortgages, foreign participation in the bond market has been increased while the USSR works to increase the ruble's global role. Security and defense have been significant areas of investment for the Zyuganov regime. He announced a reduction of 600 000 troops from the SRA in 2014 bringing it down to it's current size. Zyuganov described this as a gesture of peace, but foreign analysts still noted an increase in military spending and said that the cut was done to reduce wage and maintenance costs to free up more funds to more rapidly and comprehensively modernize the SRA. Zyuganov has delivered numerous high-profile pronouncements aiming to build a more effective fighting force in addition greatly emphasizing the principle of "the party commanding the gun".

Major shifts from OTL - Bukharin takes over after Lenin instead of Stalin, taking the USSR down a divergent path. The famines are avoided and while industrialization takes longer, the USSR also develops an actually stable and more dynamic economy.

Who owns Taiwan? Is it possible to have an alternate Taiwan in which Netherlands retained colonial control and eventually it became independent in the 50s?

Did the Apartheid government or the Afrikaans won the civil war? Is South Africa still remaining in the Entente?

Could this be changed? I mean, could it be possible to alter history of Taiwan so it fits the concept I mentioned?

If not, is it possible to have a Greater Greece that encompasses Anatolia and Trebizond? I mean, in the past iteration other players were allowed to change their final borders.

Neither won. South Africa is split between the Cape Republic and the insert other nation here because I can't copy and paste. And neither are in the Entente.

Neither, as Hypron said it's split between the Cape Republic and Bantu State, neither are members.

Cape Republic is basically an African version of northern Ireland during the Troubles and the Bantu State, is a radical bantu nationalist dictatorship bankrolled by China after they almost bankrupted themselves Zimbabwe-style.

Hmm I want two GEACPS Satellites for Japan so that'll stay as it is, I'll been keeping the history more set in this iteration.

Seems pretty fine to me, though illegal migration on the southern border would probably be less of an issue in this timeline though. The UASC enforcing stability in central America all the way down to Gran Colombia would have allowed them to avoid the coups and instability of OTL and develop more, they would be wealthier and there'd be less incentive to migrate, especially migrate illegaly. Grand Colombia would probably be having bigger issues with illegal cross-border movement of people coming from further south trying to get to Columbia.

A Kingdom of Hungary is totally cool, but I'm afraid a border shift of that scale isn't. It isn't like we're talking of one island or a small region after all.
