[OOC] [No More Signups] MT / PMT Tensions in Kostane

Postby Kostane » Sun Mar 31, 2024 6:42 pm

The Story:
The government of Kostane is one that was born into large amounts of instability. After its inception in the first Kostan Civil War, it immediately began an aggressive path of expansionism towards its close neighbors. Through this, it's military was built up and the beginning and fiercely nationalist New Republic was declared. Now, Kostane finds itself on the bring of yet another civil war, this one more deadly than the last due to its global scope.

Recently, Kostane joined several international alliances, including the CSL and the ISD. However, following several disagreements over the conclusion of the civil war in Heldervin, Kostane found itself increasingly isolated from the CSL. This isolation only worsened when Elli Port, the representative from Kostane and Admiral James Port's niece, disappeared for a night before coming back to insult nearly every member of the CSL. That resulted in Kostane's abrupt withdrawal from the CSL.

However, this withdrawal and the corresponding support of Heldervin's monarchal and slave-owning regime have not come without their domestic consequences. Increasingly, populist forces have risen up against Kostane's government, accusing the government of dictatorship and tyranny, and calling for the institution of democratic governance. They claim the government's foreign policy backsliding is a sign of a larger trend of increased conservatism in the government. If they gained power, it is likely that they would completely reverse many of Kostane's foreign policies, especially involving the war in Heldervin.

The streets of Sevregral have been filled with blood after a university protest gone wrong. The government crackdown called in nearly the entire army to kill university students who were protesting and torturing many others. This appears to be a trend of larger trouble, as riots increase nationally and the world watches with a hunger barely disguised behind the sharp teeth of imperialism. Meanwhile, the disgraced diplomat, Elli Port, who is seen as the cause of all of this has disappeared completely, seemingly off the face of the Earth.

It remains to be seen what permanent consequences these riots will have on the country of Kostane. While some say it is a precursor to all-out war, many in Kostane seem to be far too nationalist to allow foreign intervention. Whatever the consequences, the nation of Kostane will likely never be the same, and this shall become a momentous event in its history.


The Loyalists:

The loyalist cause encompasses a broad range of the political spectrum, from centrist who see a civil war as harmful to stability, to the right who wants a restoration of a monarchal structure, stretching even as far as leftists who see the possible for reform in the current meritocratic system.

Following the withdrawal from the CSL, Admiral James Port made a public announcement, seeming to recognize for the first time the turmoil that his country faces.

Kostane is a country at war. We may not see it yet in our daily lives, we may not feel it in our cannons, we do not yet hear the drones above our head. But make no mistake. We ARE at war. There is a battle raging in Kostane, and one raging throughout the entire world, between those democratic moralists, those populists who would see every good government collapse, and the loyalists who stand for global stability. If the democrats win, the chaos shall be endless. We will all die. The constant political violence, the bloodshed that would be accompanied with democracy is but a ploy to weaken us. The CSL is made up of fake democracies, dictatorships who spread democracy only as a way to weaken their opponents while maintaining the superior dictatorial systems for themselves. We shall end this trend.

Look around you. They paint those students who rose up in treasonous revolt against the government as innocents. They were not innocent. They were all foreigners in disguise, plants placed in this company in order to provoke instability. You can never trust those CSL foreigner democrats, the populists who will destroy us. No, we shall carry the fight. We are the superior army. I have read history books, I have examined every last aspect of foreign policy, and it has lead me to one certainty. There has been, is, and will be no country that shall ever even dream of the greatness Kostane has achieved. Even in our early days, we recognized our destiny. We gave the great cry -- "Kostane est inevitabilis." Kostane is inevitable. There is nothing they, nor any nation on this planet can do to stop us. We simply must step and claim our destiny. We must. "Fight for Kostane, or die for nothing." If you do not fight for Kostane, you shall die alone on a battlefield, surrounded by false promises. Only Kostane can lead you to salvation.

My people, do not trust the foreigners. The last time they provoked uprising in our country, the Chads came in and took half our land. They slaughtered our people. We do not want a repeat of that slaughter. I urge you, democracy is a failure. Stand down.


The Admiral's strong words are merely part of the larger viewpoint of the loyalists. Kostane has only faced bloodshed on this scale once before, during the First Kostan Civil War. That war was catastrophic for the Kostan people, especially in terms of foreign imperialism. It is what lead to the popularity of the current dictatorship, and another war like that could end up only further cementing the Admiral's popularity.


The Democratic Populists:


The Democratic Populists remain divided across a large spread of the left side of the political spectrum. Ranging for communists, to anarchists, to the moderate reformists, they can only agree on one thing, and that is that the current system must end. With no current leader, this movement seems highly likely to fracture or fail before a civil war is even escalated. There have no one in power, and it would take some truly historic event in order to be the catalyst towards a larger movement.

That being said, the democratic populists do have several advantages. They have the backing of large foreign countries who would possibly intervene in Kostane without any heed of the well-being for Kostan citizens. They are concentrated in cities, where they would be able to effectively wage an urban guerilla war against troops. But, the time does not yet seem right for them to attack. That time will come one day, and it seems to be getting every closer.


Rules:

No Instant Wins (WMDs that destroy an entire country, undetectable chemical weapons from a submarine, etc.)
No Godmoding

A note: The civil war has started yet. I prefer to do a slower buildup in order to allow people to get to know the general plotline and let more people join. So, right now, all countries know is that the parts labeled in the story. I have done several posts that further develop the factions before the civil war started (this also served as a way to balance the sides a little more as I got more information on foreign intervention).

I have a question. Will this war be connected to Kostane’s involvement in Heldervin, as a way to raise a few stakes and add some more depth to the storyline?

Probably. The democratic populists would probably take a much more hardline stance towards Heldervin’s monarchy and especially slavery. I plan on making Kostane’s foreign policy an issue of contention that really is what provokes this uprising, almost the opposite of Vietnam War protests in the US.

I see. Good to know. Hopefully, this war has a big lasting geopolitical impact. This time of year usually has both that and brings in a bunch of eager new players that are ready to get involved in the many RPs that NS has to offer. Inter-war continuity makes for a perfect experience.

Accepted.

I don’t intend to have orbat limits. I do see a chance of this escalating and don’t want to limit that. Though I will note that there’s no godmoding and no lazy WMD use (just saying “we nuke this country, and there’s nothing they can do.”)
