The Coldest War Redux (Alt-Hist Cold War RP - OOC)

January 1st, 1960

The United States of America and the Greater Germanic Reich are engaged in a conflict for the future of mankind. In Germania, Führer Adolf Hitler rules with an iron fist the European Continent, now integrated into the European Economic Community, an organization that promotes "European Unity" but in reality enforces Germanic dominance over the continent. Only the Kingdom of Italy is powerful enough to stand truly independent from the Reich, but still acts as the inferior partner in the Germano-Italian alliance. West of the Ural Mountains, in the inhospitable lands of Northern Asia, various Warlords lord over what once was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Anarchy, violence, terror, and famines are commonplace in these cursed lands. The Republic of China stands as the new Giant of Asia with the defeat of Imperial Japan. Chinese influence has crept into Southern Asia, challenging European colonialism. The State of Japan, having been defeated in a brutal Pacific War and having suffered the loss of its colonial Empire, is reliant on America and still trying to find its place in this new world. Across the Pacific, America stands as the beacon of freedom and democracy in a dark world. President Douglas MacArthur, hero of the Pacific War, is unlikely to seek a third term and Presidential hopefuls are preparing for the 1960 President Elections. Challenging the Nazi dominance of Europe has become the most prominent issue of the day as a Brown Scare has overtaken the country and people whisper of Nazi plots to overthrow the Federal government. Across the Atlantic lies the British Empire. Having had to come to a painful peace treaty with Germany in 1943, the British have to contend with the fact that they are no longer the dominant power in the World. India, the Jewel of the Empire, has gained independence. In British colonies in Africa, Marxist and Fascist guerilla groups wage wars for independence. The Free France, led by Charles De Gaulle, maintains a fragile hold over what once was French Africa. In the Middle East and North Africa, the Great Powers (Germany, United States, Britain, and Italy) compete for influence as Pan-Arab Nationalism is becoming more popular. South America has become a fertile ground for communist and fascist ideologues.

The question of the day is: Will National Socialism or Liberal Democracy stand triumphant in the Cold War for the fate of the Globe?












Notes on Map: Malaysia is represented as a British colony on the map but players are free to app as them. Greece, Cyprus, Albania, and Egypt are puppet states of Italy, but players are free to app as them. Spain, Bulgaria, Argentina, Iran, Iraq, Gran Colombia, and Vichy France appear on the map but they are still unclaimed.

Be sure to check the country roster below to see which nations are claimed, since the map is not always 100% up to date

Welcome to The Coldest War (TCW for short). TCW is an alternative history geopolitical/nation RP. In this timeline, while the United States intervened against Imperial Japan and defeated the Japanese as in RL, they did not intervene against Nazi Germany. This, combined with a more effective campaign against the USSR that avoided fateful mistakes, led to a victory of Germany in the Western theater of WWII. Now, in 1960, America and Germany are locked in a Cold War analogous to the real one.

TCW aims to combine player freedom with scripted events and a defined setting. The hope is to strike the right balance between allowing players to define their countries and offering interesting events and situations to ensure that the RP does not become stale or players run out of ideas.

Image


The Point of Divergence (PoD - the date from which things can change in the history of your nation) is 1936. While players have the freedom to define their nations, their histories should not contradict the prologue and the following stated events:

    1. Francisco Franco emerged victorious in the Spanish Civil War.
    2. The Second Sino-Japanese War started on 7 July 1937 and the Second World War started on 1 September 1939, just as in RL.
    3. After the Attack on Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941), the United States and the Empire of Japan are in a state of war. However, Germany did not declare war on the US and America does not intervene in the Western Theater of WWII.
    4. The German invasion of the USSR is widely more successful and by 1942, Moscow is captured. The Soviet government retreats past the Ural Mountains and despite pledges to fight on, it collapses into chaos and warlordism.
    5. In 1943, the United Kingdom and the German Reich sign a peace agreement that recognizes German conquests in Europe. Britain does not suffer any territorial losses, but the loss in prestige is great.
    6. Japan formally surrenders on September 2, 1945. It had suffered two atomic bombs. The Treaty of San Francisco (1951) ended the legal state of war between Japan and the Allied Powers and it came into force on 28 April 1952.
    7. On 29 August 1949, Germany conducted its first successful test of an atomic bomb.
    8. The Chinese Civil War ended in 1947, with the victory of the Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang). Since then, the Republic of China has become the new big power in Asia with the decline of Britain, the collapse of the USSR, and the end of the Japanese Empire.
    9. India was granted independence in 1947.
    10. The French territories in West Africa are still under the control of Free France, led by Charles De Gaulle, but there is growing unrest amongst the colonial subjects of Free France.
    11. British colonies in Africa suffer from low-level insurgencies against colonial rule. Independence leaders have been influenced both by Marxism and Fascism.
    12. On 12 July 1950, the European Economic Community was founded. It aims to create a common European market and to harmonize financial and trade regulations. While so far it acts as a way for Germany to dominate the continent, genuine Europeanists do exist, both within Germany and outside of it.
    13. Douglas MacArthur served two terms as President of the United States and is the current President. He does not plan on running for a third term though.
    14. The United States and Germany are engaged in a space race. In 1957, Germany achieved the first successful satellite launch.

As long as those events are not contradicted, players are free to shape their histories.

Some examples: Players can have someone other than Chiang-Kai Sheng leading the Republic of China, but cannot have the CPC win the Chinese Civil War. Players in continental Europe can decide who the leader of their nation is, as long as that leader is right-leaning since Germany dominates the continent.

For players who seek greater liberty in shaping their countries, I recommend Siberia, Latin America, the Middle East, and South Asia since those regions have the least pre-determined history.

Image


The TCW aims to create a dynamic and living world. At the same time, it realizes that often geopolitical RPs stale due to a lack of activity and ideas. As such, Events aim to make the world come true. Events Post will detail various events: both in player countries and in NPC countries. Some of the events will be the result of actions undertaken by the players themselves. Other events, however, will create new challenges which the players will have to address. Sometimes, failure to address those challenges will have severe negative effects on a nation.

Image


    1. Each RL month will be four months in-game.
    2. Be realistic in your sign-ups. Applications should respect both the timeline and common sense. As such, a Napoleonic France or a Babylonian Empire will not be accepted. If you are in the mood for something a bit more crazy, Russian Warlords states are being given more leeway with regard to realism, but even then I expect you to have a serious concept.
    3. This RP gives a lot of leeway to players to pursue domestic and foreign agendas of their liking. However, they must be within reason. You cannot dismantle American democracy, not at least without months of quality posting showing the process. You cannot join as France and start invading North Africa on day one, much less so without German and Italian permission. You cannot join as Japan and declare war on Korea. Be realistic.
    4. This is a geopolitical RP, not a war RP. Invading a country, even assuming you have a legit casus belli, will be a difficult affair and if it lasts longer than expected, it will create backlash at home. This is especially true if you are intervening in a faraway region. Stupid wars (Japan invading Korea on day one or the United States invading Brazil for no reason) will be blocked. However, you can start proxy wars by sending financial and military help to countries (or armed groups) that are in conflict.
    5. No powergaming. This means that your nation will not be perfect. It will have problems and flaws. This will actually make your roleplaying experience more fun since you will have those problems to tackle.
    6. I expect posts to be at least two paragraphs long (with the exception of diplomatic statements - such as condemnations of an action, replying to a diplomatic offer, etch). But generally speaking, with those exceptions aside, I expect you to put in at least some effort. Last but not least, I prefer quality over quantity. I much prefer if you make one big, good post once a week than if you post a paragraph-long post of bad quality every day.
    7. Be polite, do not be rude, and keep disputes outside the IC. Even in the OOC thread, you will have to be polite when discussing disputes. As OP, I reserve the right to tell you to stop an argument if it gets heated; if you want to continue, you can do so through telegrams. I expect the threads to be friendly to players.
    8. Do not glorify Nazism or Fascism. If you RP as a Nazi or Fascist government, I also expect you to hint (at the very least) in your posts about the oppression of those regimes. I am not asking you to RP as a mustache-twirling evil maniac (because that would be stupid), but I do ask you not to whitewash those regimes.
    9. While racist rhetoric is allowed in the context of IC posts, it will not be tolerated in the OOC thread.

SIGN UP


Fill up the application to join. You can post in the IC only if you have been accepted. Reservations last a week. You can renew them only once (except if it is a great power like the United States or China, in which case you cannot unless you can have the app ready in like a day). If you do not renew your reservation or fail again to app, then your nation will be free once again to be taken by another player.

NOTE: I will accept reservations for the United States only from experienced RPers. As such, if you are new here or still a newbie in geopolitical RPs, it's better to look for some other nation. The reason for this is because of the United States' important role in the context of this RP.

Would prefer if we have at least two Russian states, so I would have to ask for reduced claims. You are free to claim a large part of Russia though. :)

APPLICATION
NS Name: Sao Nova Europa
RP Name: Greater Germanic Reich
Flag:

Image


Capital: Germania
Territory: Map

The heart of the Greater Germanic Reich is comprised of the pre-1938 Germany proper, Switzerland, Austria, Bohemia, Moravia, Czech Silesia, Eupen-Malmedy, Memel, Lower Styria, Upper Carniola, Southern Carinthia, Danzig, and Poland. A number of annexed territories that are considered inferior to Germany proper or not sufficiently Germanized yet are governed by Reichskommissariats: Reichskommissariat Norwegen, Reichskommissariat Schweden, Reichskommissariat Dänemark, Reichskommissariat Niederlande, Reichskommissariat Belgien, Reichskommissariat Ostland, Reichskommissariat Ukraine, Reichskommissariat Moskowien, and Reichskommissariat Kaukasien. The territories annexed from France have been reorganized as the Ordensstaat Burgund, ruled by Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler and under SS control.

Population: 180,000,000
Note: Statistics on the exact population in the Eastern Territories may be partially unreliable

Official Language(s): German
Ethnic Breakdown:

67% Germanic (120,000,000), 33% Untermensch (60,000,000)
Note: Statistics on ethnicity may be partially unreliable, especially in the Eastern Territories

Religious Breakdown:

59% Protestant
37% Catholic
3.5% Gottgläubig

Note: Only takes into account Germanic citizens

Type of Government: Unitary Nazi one-party fascist state under a totalitarian dictatorship
Head of State: Führer Adolf Hitler

Image

Head of Government: Chancellor Albert Speer

Image

Legislature (the name of your national legislature): Reichstag
Legislative Houses (if your legislature is bicameral): Unicameral Parliament
Party in Power: National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP)
National Issues:

    1. Slave Economy: The German Reich relies heavily on the use of slave labor in the Eastern Territories to keep the German economy afloat. The heavy reliance on slave labor has caused problems though; the Slavic population hates German rule and many Germanic workers - especially ones with only high-school education - find themselves competing against slave labor. This has led to rising discontent amongst the working class.
    2. Cold War: The Germanic Reich is locked into a global ideological conflict with the United States. As such, it has to spend extensive resources on building up the German military and propping up German allies around the globe while also attempting to undermine American influence. The burden of such an undertaking threatens to bankrupt Germany.
    3. Internal Rivalries: With Hitler growing older, there is the question of who will succeed him when he eventually retires (or dies). Albert Speer is Chancellor and many expect him to succeed the elderly Führer, but faces a number of rivals. His reformist plans have led conservative Nazi Party officials to rally behind Martin Bormann, Chief of the Nazi Party Chancellery who promises to uphold the status quo. Hermann Göring has attracted the support of militarists within the German military and political elites who believe that Germany's current problems can be resolved by a new round of external expansion. Heinrich Himmler, who rules his own private domain and has control of the SS, represents those who believe that the failures of the current regime stem from deviation from National Socialist orthodoxy. Joseph Goebbels, formerly aligned with Himmler, has emerged as a potential successor by advocating a return to the era before Speer's reforms but rejecting the more radical elements of Himmler's platform.

Public Goals: European cooperation, defense of Christendom, opposition to liberalism and communism
Private Goals: World domination

GDP (nominal): 520bn (USD)
Currency: Reichsmark
Economic System: State Capitalism
Major Trade Partners: France, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom
Alliance(s): European Economic Community, Italo-German Pact

Military Branches (names of official Armed Forces Branches): Heer, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Waffen-SS

Active Duty: 3,000,000
Reserve Duty: 10,600,000
Total Manpower: 13,600,000

Land Forces:

Germany has 76 Infantry Divisions. Each division has about 25,000 men, 442 machine guns, 135 mortars, 72 antitank guns, and 24 howitzers. Germany has 9 Panzer Divisions. Each one is comprised of about 11,800 men, 328 tanks, 8 support battalions and 6 artillery batteries. In total, the Reich has 2,952 Tanks.

Air Force:

The German Reich has 4,201 operational aircraft: 1,191 bombers, 361 dive bombers, 788 fighters, 431 heavy fighters, and 488 transports. It also has 373,000 personnel. As a result of the German Recession of 1946-8, cuts had to be made which reduced both the operational aircraft and the personnel.

Naval Forces:

The German Navy is comprised of 4 aircraft carriers, 10 battleships, 15 armored ships (Panzerschiffe), 3 battlecruisers, 5 heavy cruisers, 44 light cruisers, 158 destroyers and torpedo boats, 249 submarines, and 300,000 personnel.

Other Military Information:

The Waffen-SS maintains 10 Divisions for a total of 200,000 men. They are the military branch of the Nazi Party. Most of them are concentrated in Ordensstaat Burgund, which has become a massive militarized state.
Germany successfully tested an atomic bomb in 1949 and is slowly but steadily building up a stockpile with hopes of catching up to the US. Currently, it is estimated the Reich possesses 2,000 nuclear weapons.

History:

In 1943, the Greater Germanic Reich stood supreme. It had managed to drive back the 'Judeo-Bolsheviks' out of Europe, into the wild frontiers of Siberia, and had forced the British Empire to accept a humiliating peace treaty. Hitler stood as the unopposed Master of Europe. At once, he began enacting his great plans for the future of the Reich. Under the supervision of Albert Speer, Berlin was transformed into Germania, the greatest city in Europe. Switzerland was absorbed into the Reich. In the Eastern Territories, in preparation for the planned Germanic colonization of the region, the Slavic population suffered deportations east of the Ural Mountains at best or mass extermination in concentration camps at worst.

But things turned sour in the latter half of the 1940s. A combination of gross economic mismanagement - which led to the Recession of 1948 - and the immense costs of the Generalplan Ost (Master Plan for the East) undermined Hitler's rule and the popularity of the Nazi Party. Hitler realized a change of direction was needed. Albert Speer, Minister of Industry and Production, was appointed Chancellor. Under his reformist leadership, the program of deportation and extermination of the Slavic populations stopped. Instead, the Slavs were to be used extensively as slave labor to shore up the failing German economy. The plan worked; the sweat, blood, and tears of slaves pulled the Reich out of the recession in 1950.

On 29 August 1949, Germany conducted its first successful test of an atomic bomb. On 12 July 1950, the European Economic Community was founded with the goal of creating a common European Market and harmonizing financial and trade regulations. In 1957, Germany achieved the first successful satellite launch, stunning the world. The Reich seemed to have fully recovered and was reigning supreme in Europe, silencing critics. The United States could no longer afford to ignore the Reich.

But behind this façade of dominance, the Reich has structural weaknesses. The economy is stagnant and kept afloat by slave labor; the middle class is increasingly dissatisfied with the lack of meaningful economic growth and luxury consumer goods; the military seeks to recapture the 'good old days' and demands an ever-increasing budget; the SS believe that Speer has betrayed the principles of National Socialism and blame his reforms for Germany's failures; and the Nazi Party that is deeply divided between cliques who jockey for the top job as it becomes increasingly clear that Hitler's reign is coming to an end.

Book Italy for me please, I'm filling in the information.
Just a Futuristic, vengeful, militarized, expansionist German Empire, nothing much to worry about, unless you're one of my targets, then you need to worry. :P
A nation of 51.6 in democracy according to this https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=528862.
German Empire takes more Aggressive stance against Marajarbia and ODP and begins to seize any ship in the German sea or plane from Marajarbia in the Air or on German soil, while the German army that is spread around the world receives orders to be ready for possible and future conflict between the Reich and the ODP (if it occurs)

History:Brazil during World War II, had a larger presence in the War, fighting both in France and in some parts of Africa, the Brazilian army held the German and Italian Army on several fronts, waiting for reinforcements, but in the end it was left aside and with that the Germans and Italians destroyed the Brazilian forces in Europe and Africa, after signing a peace agreement with Germany, where Brazil paid some considerable indemnities, it entered an economic crisis that reduced its GDP from 20 million to 17 million, and a political crisis in Brazil, only hinders Brazil even more, but after a pro-American monarchist coup d'état, Emperor Dom Pedro III, was determined to avenge his country, and would do everything to save his country crisis and avenge the nation of Italians and Germans

World War II refugees:With the victory of the Fascist War Machine, many refugees from various countries, escaped to Brazil before the fall of France, some Jewish survivors, arrived in Brazil in poor health and also physical conditions, and as Brazil has a black population considerable size and also having Jewish refugees, Germany is taking an aggressive stance against Brazil during the Cold War, and the Emperor of Brazil has sworn that he would defend the refugees at any cost.

Economic crisis:After surrendering to Germany during World War II, Brazil entered a serious economic crisis, which was further driven by strikes in factories caused by unions claiming more labor rights and better wages, with that, the imperial government, is trying to negotiate with unions since the beginning of the Cold War.

Political instability:Because of the economic crisis and the shameful Brazilian surrender, several parties began to demand revenge against the Axis, while other parties wanted the total demilitarization of the country, thus causing great political instability in the country. in the country, which put an Imperial government in power that was strongly anti-German, now the Imperial government must stabilize national politics again.

I'm definitely considering applying for this RP, I see that there are a variety of combinations of different alternate histories. Would it be possible to apply as an internal faction within Nazi Germany representing the SS? Options could be for me to apply as the Ordensstaat and running all of the SS, or just running the bit within Germany. I could be a semi-active poster adding to the dynamics of things going on within Germany, as well as some potential additional stuff going on overseas under the autonomy of the SS.

I'll fully comply with the rules of site and RP and would be interested to hear your thoughts on this OP!

Would prefer to keep this as a purely nation RP instead of focusing on internal factions, so I would not be able to accept this, unfortunately.

There are a couple of interesting options to consider:

France: It could have embraced a more radical, Nazist direction if that's your thing.
Balkans and Hungary: Again, you could apply as a fascist state in the region.
Spain: Franco
Portugal: You could either apply as Salazar or potentially a more radical/falangist Portuguese regime
China: The rising power in East Asia. KMT could have embraced aspects of fascism and ultranationalism.
South America: Argentina, Brazi, Chile, etch could potentially have embraced Nazism

Thank you for giving those additional options. I'll make my case and offer an option, and if you reject that I'll make a different application as I still want to be involved in this :)

1) I understand that for the RP on the whole you don't want an overfocus on internal factions, I was simply thinking that Greater Germany is going to be very big and having an internal faction to consider will help give it some credit to stop it being overstretched in terms of you also running the other events. It will give some more flesh.
2) As such, if I cannot RP as an internal SS faction, can I apply as the Ordensstaat- as a puppet, with some administrative control in Germany for instance.
3) If not, can I apply purely as the Ordensstaat?

4) If all of the above are rejected, I'll make another app, but many thanks and I would ask you to consider :)

There have been a couple of RPs with that name, so I am not sure if you are referring to my past RP. It actually lasted three pages, so I would like to think it did not die the second it started. :)

I have already drafted some plans for internal conflicts within Germany itself (they are alluded to in the app) and planning on them being a big part of the story of Germany. There is also the fact that Germany is an important component of this RP, so I wanted to keep direct control over it.

I might be willing to make an exception and allow you perhaps to join as Himmler (Ordensstaat), but this will have to come with the realization that your freedom of action will be somewhat restricted. You will have to run any post or action before me to approve before you can post it IC and I will have the right to reject actions that I believe would go against the storyline I have planned for Germany. If those restrictions are alright with you, you can feel free to apply. :)

Also, just to clarify, when I state that I don't want internal factions to be the focus I mean I don't want players joining as political parties, etch. Focusing on domestic politics is actually encouraged and will be a large part of the RP.

Both can be considered. Your Indian Federation was interesting, so maybe you can rejoin as it?

All fully understood, would it be possible to help out with that as I see that Germany is a big role, and apply as Himmler- would you be willing to TG me as much as you are willing in terms of plans and narrative points, as well as any themes, redlines, things you want to come up etc, that I can then contribute to/avoid- to fit in with your overall intent :)

Many thanks :)

Hmmm
For India, figuring out what would take place between 1952 to 1960 in that country.

A tough decision to start over as a Russian state or continue with the India idea
