This map game is now archived as an Inactive Map Game.

From the ruins of an isolated and declining Russian Federation, to a squabbling and ineffective parliament of the USA, the year 2032 could have seen better days. The Western World has been utterly torn apart into the social democratic Europe and the corporatist United States, whom many Europeans has described as an oligarchy like the Russians. In Africa, water and resource shortages are leading to many civil wars in the DRC, Nigeria and even Ethiopia, while South America is seeing a new wave of socialism or fascism rising across the continent. In Asia, tensions between the minor powers of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran are at an all-time high, while East Asia remains as voliatile as ever, with fears of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan now boiling across the First Island Chain. There is optimism to be held however, as the pace new technologies and space exploration are increasing exponentially. Will humanity cooperate to achieve dreams of a true Galactic domination? Or will humanity be focused on politics and ruin all potential for the future? You decide. Welcome to the Path of Humanity, which is both a map game and a scenario timeline.


Within the span of 10 years, the world's landscape has changed from a divided world with around 200 countries to one dominated by superstates. The most prominent of which is the United States of the Anglosphere, formed in 2026 after a rather controversial referendum meant that the British Isles, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are merged into the United States of America. This new country added 20 more states, and is the world's largest country, even surpassing the Russian Federation. The USA is on paper a liberal democracy, holding free and fair elections. While the country is still liberal and free, the elections are are certainly not fair. The elections are dominated by the former Republicans and the Democrats in America, the former now reformed as the Republican-Tory Coliation (RTC). There are many other factions, like the Anglican Labour Party (ALP) or the CANZUK Party, the latter being a far-right group seeking the total independence of the former Commonwealth nations, but in most cases, the Americans dominate the political landscape. This sense of American superiority within the supposedly "equal and free" Anglosphere rubbed many Britons, Australians, Canadians and Zealanders the wrong way, and perhaps the country is not meant to be after all...

With the Anglosphere forming in 2026, any love between Europe and America is vanished with what they essentially deem "occupation of the British Isles". NATO is disbanded following the referendums, and Macron approached Scholz towards the end of his presidency with a proposal: Merge the Nordic States, Germany, Benelux, Poland, Czechia, Austria and France into the European Federation. After some heated debates, the bill was passed in 2028, and the marriage between France and Germany was made complete on January 1st, 2029 with the European Federation, dominating the landscape of Western Europe. Despite many nations like Spain, Italy or the Balkans wanting to join the EF, the Europeans have so far refused all applications, as they want to stabilize the new nation first before admitting more states. While the EF did allow more parties and is lesser dominated by two parties or member states for that matter, radical groups felt like France and Germany should never be together, and anti-European terrorism is on the rise since 2030, very nearly killing the Prime Minister of the EF, Mario Czaja in 2031.

Across the Polish border, we find the Russian Federation. The Russians have certainly seen better days before this point, with the country being increasingly stale and depressing as days past. Vladimir Putin, the "President" of Russia, is now 79 years old, and although he isn't as fraile and teetering on the verge of death as the Western media would have their citizens believe, he is spending more and more time in hospital for routine checks, leading to some to question if he has much longer to alive. The country is slapped with tens of thousands of sanctions ever since their invasion of Ukraine in 2022, and despite an eventual Russian victory at the end of that year, they were only able to officially annex Crimea and the breakaway areas of Ukraine, a far cry from the areas Putin would have hoped to gain. Later on in the 2020's, Belarus and Kazakhstan were annexed, and Georgia was invaded in 2025, sparking even more sanctions that basically destroyed the Russian economy. The Russians are now effectively cancelled from the entire world, with no internet, no access to the banking system, no trade, and barely any imports or exports. Even China has fallen out with Russia following their annexation of Kazakhstan, leaving the Russians in an isolated mess. The Russian Ruble is even worse off, with hyperinflation being rampant during the financial crisis of 2023, and now the exchange rate is stuck at almost 100,000 to the dollar, despite the fact that the Ruble is now worth less than the Venezuelan Bolivar. The nation seems to be on the verge of total collapse.

In the Middle East, a cold war is emerging between Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia. Turkey under Erdogan has been expanding rather rapidly, taking over the failed states of Syria and Lebanon, while an uneasy truce has been established between them and Iraq, with the Turkish annexing all of Kurdistan. Iran has been playing chess with Saudi Arabia along the Persian Gulf, while the tiny state of Israel is basically left on their own with the USA now busy in trying to stabilize the country. Egypt meanwhile is becoming a frightingly powerful country, interfering in the Sudanese-Ethoipian War in 2025, leading to the Second Ethiopian Civil War. In the south, Tanzania and Kenya finally made the East African Republic a reality, becoming a major juggernaut in the region's politics. Meanwhile, Nigeria is still fighting the Boko Haram, as DR Congo falls into another Civil War. Across the entire MENA area, food and water are becoming scarce. Who knows when will a famine break out in the region?

In Asia, the situation is equally dire for all parties involved. Pakistan and India are on the brink of total war after a tense standoff between both sides near Kashmir. The Taliban government in Afghanistan is also looking to the south, trying to reclaim the lands they deemed that they have lost. In China, there has been even more evidence of an all-out genocide of minorities of Turkic people in the region of Xinjiang, and to no one's surprise, China has denied it. The Chinese territory of Hong Kong has practically devolved into a political anarchy zone, with the Yellow and the Blue Camps (i.e. Anti-China or Pro-China) literally carving exclusive territories as if it was the segregation era in America. Raids on both camps by the police or the Hong Kong Free Milita (HKFM) are rampant, all the while Macau is feeling the effects of the collapse of society in Hong Kong, with many refugees coming to the already crowded Macau for a peaceful life. The tensions are also felt in Taiwan, where a buildup of Chinese troops near Kinmen has made the Taiwanese government uneasy. The ramifications of the Sino-Anglo Cold War is most felt across East Asia, where it has developed into a heated conflict between China and Japan. Korea finds itself stuck in between this conflict, still divided in 2032 between the North and the South.

Finally, let's talk about South America. In South America, the region's politics are dominated by the rise of the Socialist Republic of Brazil and the formation of the Federation of Gran Colombia. Compared to the other continents, this continent is rather calm. Although, tensions are rising between Brazil and Argentina, with another mini Cold War happening between Colombia, Brazil and Argentina, fighting for influence in South America. A war might not be immient, but it is on the table for sure. As you can see, 2032 in this world has seen a resurgence of nationalism, extremism, superstates and tensions. It's almost a guareentee that World War III will inevitably eurpt. The question is: When?

Playable Countries

Nations that are off-bounds to new players:

Any other country can be played by anyone.

  • Brazil.png Socialist Republic of Brazil - None for now (Punchbox you can take it)
  • Italyflag.pngRepublic of Italy - FireBlaze19
  • The Republic of the Philippines - Alienzombiehunter


  1. All turns will be published every three days, but if not enough players have submitted their turns yet, I will delay it to six days after that turn has started. Then, the game will continue on as normal.
  2. To apply, you can either message me on Discord (Awesome#7970), Message me on the Message Wall (RobloxPinewood), or just type in the comments.
  3. Adding lore is required for all players when roleplaying a country. I have designed a format for how a turn should ideally look like, though you don't need to copy it precisely.
  4. You will be eliminated from the game if you miss five turns.
  5. Switching nations is not allowed on the game for no reason. If your country gets annexed by another country (which I highly doubt will happen), you are out of this game for three in-game years before you can join as a new nation.
  6. Do not do godmodding. Godmodding is the act of deciding results of actions without asking the other players/mods. Any instance of this will result in a warning, as well as having that section of the turn deleted. If done five times, you will be banned from the game.
  7. Do not randomly destroy your country. In other words, do not roleplay stuff as unleashing superviruses on yourself, launching 7000 nukes or roleplay an asteroid flying towards Earth.
  8. While you are generally allowed to decide what happens during wartime, the moderators will be influncing your moves. Do not be surprised if an AI opposition puts up a tough fight.
  9. Do not make unrealistic advances e.g. Russia pushing from Moscow to Berlin in one day. You will be banned for two turns if you do so.
  10. Technological advancement is encourged, as it will give you a higher chance of recieving better mod events. However, please be realistic in advancements, and do not attempt to go from 2G cellphones to Quantum Computing in one year.
  11. Similarly, Space colonization is encourged as well, but you must have the technology to do so. Remember to keep it step by step.
  12. Moderators are not allowed to do self-modding. Say a moderator is Russia, and they invade Belarus, and need a mod response for the Battle of Minsk. They are not allowed to give the mod response to themselves. Same goes for being invaded.
  13. Nuclear, biological or chemical weapons are allowed in the game, but you obivously have to craft them first, and do be aware that if you do so, let's just say the Mods will be scripting to yeet your country.
  14. You are only allowed to be playing as a nation. Rebel groups are allowed, but do be aware I won't be too kind to you when writing events.
  15. You are not allowed to invade a country for no reason. This is Path of Humanity, not some sort of Rise of Nations style game on Roblox.
  16. The game is scheduled to last until 2050.
  17. Path of Humanity will automatically end if a nuclear war occurs or after the end of World War III, or if I decided to end the game in 2040 should I deem that the map game have insufficient activity.
  18. Enjoy the game!


Anyone with prior map game experience can apply. No limit of how many moderators needed.

Turn I - 2032

Welcome to 2032. The Anglosphere is holding the craziest election all of the countries have seen in centuries; Russia is about to collapse into multiple warlords, all the while civil wars are happening in Congo and Ethiopia. Tensions are definitely high amongst the superpowers, but who will come out on top?

Flag of Brazil.svg

Socialist Republic of Brazil

  • Government: The Socialist Republic of Brazil is a Federal Socialist Republic, technically ruled by the arm of the Brazilian Socialist Party, though remains a democracy.
    • Prime Minister: Fernado Haddad
    • Prime Minister: Manuela d'Avila
    • Ruling Party: Brazilian Socialist Party
  • Ideology: Authoritarian Socialism
  • Capital City: Brazilia
  • Population: 225.3 Million
  • Economy: Brazil's highly centralized economy has done wonders for the country, with our main exports being the many food products we export to the world. Living standards are better than ever, although citizens has exchanged that with lesser freedom.
  • Wars and Conflicts:
    • TBA
  • Internal Affairs:
    • As part of our next Five Year Plan, we would begin to massively invest into technolgoical items like smartphones and iPads. We are also building a tech park in Sao Paulo.
    • A series of anti-corruption campaigns are launched under the orders of Haddad. He vows to destroy all corruption in Brazil, and make the country as corruption-free as possible. (In reality, this is really just a covert plan to get rid of Haddad's rivals in power).
    • [SECRET] Haddad has plans to expand the Socialist revolution across the Americas, with his first targets being Boilvia and Paraguay. He plans to do this by inciting rebellion across the two countries, and eventually force them to join the country. [SECRET]
    • The second five-year plan is put into place, allowing us to begin the production of technological items, all for the common good of the nation.
  • International Affairs: State your reaction or stance on what happens in other nations.
    • We would wish to strengthen our relationship with China, as they are also a "communist" state.

Anglosphere.webp - United States of the Anglosphere:

  • Government: Presidential Republic
    • President: Peter Kipling (RTC)
    • Vice President: Nicki Haley (RTC)
    • Congress of the Anglosphere:
      • Majority: Republican-Tory Coalition.
      • Opposition: Democratic Party
      • Other Parties: National Coalition, Liberal Party, Social Labour Party, CANZUK Party
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Capital City: Washington, DC.
    • Major Cities: London, New York, Toronto, Montréal, Melbourne, Sydney, Los Angeles, Birmingham
    • Population: 511 million
  • Home Affairs:
    • Elections: This year's presidential and congressional elections are the most fraught and turbulent since the formation of the Anglosphere. Riots and protests are common. At the end of it all, the Republican-Tory Coalition comes out on top with a victory in the presidential elections and a slim 1-seat majority in the Congress. Major gains are made by the National Coalition, Liberal Party and the Social Labour Party, such that the country can no longer be said to have a two-party system, as the Democratic Party is reduced to a mere quarter of the seats in Congress. Both the National Coalition, Liberal Party and the Social Labour Party find their support amongst more moderate voters dissatisfied with the unification of America and CANZUK. However, unlike the openly anti-American CANZUK Party, both the Social Labour Party, Liberal Party and the National Coalition especially, appeal to moderate voters who prefer a separate-but-equal relationship between the Commonwealth nations and America, seeing them as cousins (not enemies). The National Coalition finds its support primarily amongst conservatives, both American and non-American, who seek greater autonomy for the 5 member nations of the Anglosphere. The Liberal Party and Social Labour Party, though less focused on the cause of political autonomy, nonetheless, find their support base primarily in CANZUK countries and autonomy-advocates in America. Many conservatives in CANZUK see the RTC as sell-outs, shifting their support to the National Coalition, while many liberals and working class CANZUK citizens treat the Democratic Party as a foreign party and do not trust them to do what is right for CANZUK.
    • Energy: The government is proud to announce that under the second RTC administration, the United States has achieved 50% energy production via nuclear power, with natural gas coming in second at 25%, renewables at 20% and other sources of energy at 5%. The government aims to achieve power production by nuclear energy of around 60% and renewables at around 30% by the end of this administration, reducing natural gas to just 5% of the nation's power production, thereby drastically reducing the country's contribution to global warming.
    • Transportation: The Department of Transportation notes that electric vehicles now account for a surprising 80% of all new vehicle sales, and 40% of vehicles overall. It is estimated that by 2045, over 90% of personal vehicles on the road will be electric. Of particular note is the increasing number of states (32) that have fairly liberal laws regarding self-driving vehicles. In particular, the Canadian, Australian and middle American states have been very positive towards self-driving trucks.
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • China: Following the unearthing of yet further evidence of a genocide against the Uighurs and other minorities in Xinjiang, Congress unanimously passes a resolution condemning the Chinese government for such actions in the strongest possible terms. The Xinjiang Exclusion Act is passed by Congress, prohibiting the import and sale of goods produced in Xinjiang. Additionally, the Kipling administration chooses to raise tariffs on Chinese imports in general in the hopes of further weaning the Anglosphere off of Chinese goods. Tariffs on goods from other nations in the Indo-Pacific, including ASEAN, India, Sri Lanka, South Korea and Japan, are unilaterally lowered, in the hopes that this gesture of goodwill will be reciprocated. [Mod/Player Responses]
      • Result: This is effective, but in turn drove up the prices of the Anglosphere.
    • Taiwan: The USA would strongly urge Taiwan to reject the so-called Taiwanese Independence Act prosed by China, particularly the clause requiring it to pay a 15% tax on all trade. This would reduce Taiwan to being little more than a client state, kowtowing to Beijing as many nations were forced to do during the era of the Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties. [Mod Response] Taiwan is reminded that while official acknowledgement of its independence from China would indeed be greatly beneficial, such a humiliation as the tax could not be accepted, especially since the island nation is already de facto independent.
      • Result: Taiwan refuses the Independence Act,
    • Israel: The USA maintains its position in favour of a two-state solution. Nonetheless, following China's offer to militarily intervene in the favour of Palestine (a quasi-nation currently run by a terrorist group) should a conflict arise, the USA has no choice but to offer direct military support to Israel if Palestine accepts China's offer. Moreover, the USA urges Israel to engage more closely with the United States in defence and technology. [Secret] Secret talks with Israeli government and military officials are such that the Anglosphere offers Israel intelligence and aspects of drone technology in exchange for Israeli expertise in cybertechnology. [Mod Response] [/Secret] Additionally, the US is interested in promoting greater Anglo-Israeli business cooperation by supporting university twinning efforts and hosting a biannual Anglo-Israeli Business Conference, one in Israel, one in the Anglosphere. This should prove enormously beneficial to both countries, allowing investment, technology, knowledge and human capital to flow between the two countries.
    • NATO: The new administration seeks to re-establish NATO in a renewed form, between the Anglosphere and Europe. As such, nearly every Western, Southern Central, and Northern European nation is invited to the conference, in addition to a number of key Eastern European powers. Special attention is paid to the European Federation, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Austria, Czech Republic and Greece. The collective security benefits of NATO are self-explanatory, and in this dangerous time, clearly necessary. [Mod/Player Responses]
      • European States: We are not going re-align ourselves with a country who has been doing all they can to secretly control the world. No thank you.
  • Defence Affairs:
    • Military Deployment: As the 5 nations of the Anglosphere are now united, their militaries have been united as well. As such, troops, ships, and aircraft are redeployed across the Anglosphere to better defend it against potential invaders. An arctic division is deployed to Canada, and the Pacific Fleet is permanently stationed in Australia.
    • Indo-Pacific & ASEAN:
    • Nigeria-Boko Haram: The United States offers to assist Nigeria in its fight against the ever-malicious Boko Haram. Assistance would be primarily in the form of air support, which Nigeria sorely lacks, training by members of the Green Berets and Royal Marines, and military equipment. [Mod Response]
      • Nigeria Response: We'll gladly take any help we can get.

The Republic of The Philippines

  • Wars/Conflicts: For several decades the Philippines have fought against 2 large heavily armed rebel groups in the southern regions of Mindanao, Communist New People’s Army (NPA) and the Moro Liberation Front (MLF). On 2029, President Robredo made a deal with the MLF by granting them semi-independence in a large region of Mindanao, leading to the creation of a puppet government of the Republic of Mindanao. With our help, the Republic of Mindanao has a small but heavily equipped military and stable economy by 2032. Meanwhile, our fight against NPA continues and by 2032, our forces have pushed back the communists from most of Mindanao.
  • Government: Unitary Presidential Republic
    • Ruler: President Leni Robredo.
  • Ideology: Capitalist Democracy
  • Capital City: Manila
  • Population: 180.6 Million
  • Economy: Relatively Stable
  • GDP (PPP): 365.5 Billion

Internal Affairs:

  • Military: The Philippine Armed Forces is strong enough to be able to defend or launch an attack and offensive in times of war. The number of troops is about 3 million but with the passing of the Military Service and Conscription Law, that number will be expected to increase to 5 or 10 million. The country had purchased thousands of advanced important military equipment and weapons from several nations especially from its neighboring countries throughout the years. Military aircraft and naval warships were also purchased with the country having 30 military aircraft and 15 military naval ships by 2032.
  • Technology: The Philippines encourages several technological companies to sell their products and construct their factories in the country. We also start improving the electrical power throughout the country to prevent daily blackouts.
  • Energy: The Republic, since 2027, uses solar, hydro, and nuclear power in everyday life and especially in the military.
  • Politics: The New Philippine Nationalist Party (NPNP) is created under Alejandro Lopez. The NPNP gains a large number of seats in Congress and they also begin advocating for expansionism to allow the Philippines to rise to a regional power in Asia.
  • Laws and Policies: The Military Conscription and Service Law is passed by Congress on August 5 2032. The Robredo administration also begin advocating to Congress to construct a large number of military equipment factories throughout the nation so that the Philippines would be able to produce their own military materials without having to depend on others.
  • Infrastructure: The Bataan Nuclear Power Plant during 2025 was constructed with the help of allied countries and other energy organizations. Several hydroelectric dams along with are constructed with the help of several companies while plans for a construction of a second nuclear plant is being introduced. A number of factories are also being constructed in Northern Luzon, allowing for new jobs.

International Affairs:

  • China: We wish to improve relations especially economic and military relations with the Republic of China (Chinese Player Response)

Flag of China.png - People's Republic of China

  • Government: The Government of the People's Republic of China is a Unitary Socialist State, which consists of the National People's Congress, the highest authority on legislation within China. In China, everything is controlled in one way or another by the CCP, the ruling party currently.
    • Ruler: President Xi Jinping
    • Legislature: National People's Congress
      • Ruling Party: The Communist Party of China
  • Ideology: State Socialism
  • Capital: Beijing
    • Major Cities: Chongqing, Shanghai, Shenzen, etc.
  • Population: 1.464 Billion People
  • Economy: Our economy is currently the largest of all nations on the planet, with our GDP in both nominal and PPP terms eclipsing all others. We are stagnating slightly, however still going strong it would seem.
    • GDP PPP: 41 Trillion USD
    • HDI: 0.901
  • Wars and Conflicts:
    • [SECRET] As our military planners suggest a collapse of Russia is now pretty much imminent, we would draw up battle plans to march into Eastern Russia, hoping to take a large part for ourselves. We will offer Mongolia the chance to cooperate, hoping to establish a joint Sino-Mongolian State to allow Mongolia to keep their independent functions of government and expand their current lands, but to also allow our access to resources and military planning with Mongolia side-by-side to us to increase. Russia is not an ally of ours any longer, and with the aging President we currently have, many are looking to further expand, even if this means war. [SECRET]
    • As our military expanded under Xi Jinping, so did our production of technologies and other devices in preparation for war with Taiwan, which shall be avoided under the current administration. Our military budget was increased to 3.5 percent of our GDP in 2023, after various words were exchanged with the former US over their policy on defending the Taiwan Independence Movement. We will keep our budget at 2.5 percent, however in place of this we still possess a military that is able to deploy to almost anywhere on the globe, a stockpile of over 1500 nuclear weapons, and nearly a dozen aircraft carriers, with three more being produced this year due to preliminary spending plans from 2028.
    • We will likely have to carve out Kashmir for ourselves, at it seems the Indians and Pakistanis cannot control the region without war. We will stand neutral in this conflict between the two, providing whatever resources the various nations may ask for as long as it is approved first. We start Operation Kashmir right away, looking to secure a military border around parts of Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. This will both expand our territory and allow us to provide safe aid to the various people's who live in the region.
    • We begin an invasion into North Korea, first committing a cyberattack never seen before on the various electrical grids of the country. All nuclear weapons connected to the government launch control systems are sealed, in the hopes that North Korea cannot launch a nuclear response. The President of South Korea is notified of these events taking place, and we hope to cede a small part of what will become former North Korean territory to South Korea, bringing the DMZ back further into North Korea. We will do this as a sign of goodwill and cooperation between our two nations.
    • [SECRET] Our military strategists suggest a full invasion of Russia from 2032, which we will undergo. At the first time we see weakness in Russia, we will commence a full invasion of Russia, with the state likely to fall to our forces lacking a strong military and government. We will fully exploit the resources of the new Russian state, hopefully turning our potential problems into opportunities. We would also as a by-product create three new puppet government states of sorts, with the Democratic Republic of Georgia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Belarus. We will also hopefully acquire the massive Russian stockpile of nuclear weapons, and negotiate a new potential START treaty with the USA. [SECRET]
    • Multiple companies have proposed their sixth gen fighter jets for our nation to use, among those are Qi Air Defenses F-37 Fighter, ATLAS Industries Delta Fighter, Indo-Pacific Armaments Hawk-1, and others. Expected to pick among these, we would fully induct five different proposal prototypes into our air force, essentially embracing the nature of the military industrial complex. With a vast pool of funding from the government, the private industry has rebounded from our previous stringent policy of state controlled defense policy, allowing literally thousands of defense companies to prosper. We fully encourage this pattern of innovation, though our defense budget is now primarily being spent on thousands of private corporations that split profit.
    • The objectives of the International Protection Whitepaper of 2022 have been accomplished. Our objectives were to procure a military industrial establishment on par with the United States, which we have accomplished, establish a blue water navy, which we have accomplished, establish a military base on every continent (excluding Antarctica) which we have done, and others. We possess hundreds of military bases across the world, mainly in an effort to maintain world peace by individual nation standards.
    • Well, private companies have now begun to propose ICBMs for us to procure, which we accept. These will likely replace the DF program we have held onto for years, in exchange for these various ICBMs that we believe the private corporations can develop much better. The best proposal we have seen so far, which we almost immediately approve, shows the classic principle that the private industry can do things much better than the public sector. The FireBird ICBM, which can be mass produced very easily, is a hypersonic capable ICBM capable of mounting multiple types of nuclear warheads to a yield of up to 10 megatons per missile. There are also various other proposals that come close to this ICBM and even surpass it, which we approve all of.
    • A private military group known as the Palestine Liberation Army is formed with 150,000 soldiers airdropped into the immediate vicinity of Palestinian territory. Although President Rizal has expressed his disapproval for this mission, as the law now allows, private corporations can use their own resources (which are a lot) to commit military combat exercises and protect citizens of the world from various tyrants. President Rizal clarifies that these militia groups are not sponsored in any way by The Democratic Republic and any casualties by these companies will be overlooked and not constitute an act of war. [MOD Response]
  • Internal Affairs:
    • President Xi Jinping steps down, in exchange to both avoid a near total civil war and due to his status likely as a man much hated by the now older Gen Z of China. A new face will lead China, Xi's handpicked replacement who is not known to many, Cai Rizal. Rizal is Xi's future Son-in-law after taking his daughter's hand in marriage. Rizal is a well educated but new member of the CCP, known for his outstanding patient demeanor in the face of conflict, has been seen by many as a weird replacement for the arrogant Xi, however many overlook this and believe he will become a good President.
    • President Rizal is now the leader of the Democratic Republic of China, having the name changed after a vote by the new Chinese Parliament. China now has a Parliament, better transparency, freedoms of speech and media, less government control, and more open ears to the people and the citizens. These changes were opposed by the older members of the CCP, however they were couped easily by the now young majority of China. The Democratic Republic is built in a very unique way, with Parliament now consisting of a Tricameral structure, a new People's Court with 50 justices, and more.
    • President Rizal is confronted with a conflict in Hong Kong. His response is to negotiate terms allowing for the self governance of Hong Kong in a somewhat independent manner, similar to what Hong Kong was faced with pre-2019, with the abolition of the National Security Law and the many other specific terms. Some freedoms are curtailed of course, but most remain. The situation seems to have reached an agreement point, with both parties satisfied with the terms. This effectively stabilizes Hong Kong, allowing peace to reign supreme.
    • Wealth projections are off the charts, with the new capitalist policy on private corporations having a revitalizing effect of likely a ten percent yearly increase in GDP, something not seen since the 70's. Projections range from 9.5 percent to 13.47 percent, according to various business analytics firms. The primary one we will use from now on is the already established Hurun Index, which projects growth of 11.8 percent next year. This massive spike in our GDP should allow us to support allies abroad and continue our ambitions.
    • China is now something Mao would roll in his grave over. The Democratic Republic is now a capitalist paradise, with more money and capital flowing in and out of the country than ever before. Now, implemented in a way which still protects the citizens, the rate at which the citizens are gaining wealth is growing like crazy. All state owned banks have been divided into private banks, with some controls still set in place as to prevent the collapse of the economy. Multiple new stock exchanges have been opened as well, due to the amount of new wealthy companies almost crashing the three already set stock exchanges.
    • Private military corporations have sprung up like crazy, basically adding 10 million soldiers to the countries already massive forces within a month of the largest, Qian Military Forces, popping up. Due to the massive rollback of laws restricting private companies conduct, these companies flourish, with many war veterans and other military potentials joining the forces. An issue does arise with this however, the fact that these companies can now operate within a capacity independent of the government. However, as China has basically become the wealthiest nation on earth, unless another country surpasses them soon, it is likely the military corporations will stay and work for the interests of their pockets, the Democratic Republic.
  • External Affairs:
    • President Rizal, after consulting with his cabinet and other members familiar with the issue, decides to offer Taiwan a contract of sorts. The contract stipulates Taiwan will gain independence fully from China, with our full recognition of their stance as an independent state and the ability to represent themselves on the world stage without branding our name. The agreement states Taiwan will pay a 15 percent tax on all trade done within their borders and outside their borders to the People's Republic, in return for a military agreement to protect their borders should an invader ever decide to attack their nation. We would expect they do the same in return, to defend the DRC from attacks. We will fully trade technology and military assets with each other, assist each other in military strategy and planning, and allow all citizens of both nations to cross each others borders freely. This agreement will be called the Taiwanese Independence Act. [Mod Response]
    • We propose a Sino-Italian flight to one of our moon bases, we will launch two Chinese and two Italian astronauts side by side in a Long-March 9 rocket. Alternatively, we can provide incentive for one of our many private space companies to produce a rocket alongside Italy to develop their own homegrown rocket. Several of our space companies have the capacity similar to SpaceX currently, with our venture capitalist nature later in the 20's allowing for companies to spring up like crazy. We send a mockup design of a rocket called the Italia to Italy, similar in nature to a reusable crew ship. [Italian Response]
      • Italian Response: We accept this offer, and hope for further cooperation in the future.
    • We offer 50,000 troops to the Philippines, along with military equipment and assets to their fights against the two revolutionary parties. We realize these fights have been going on for decades, and we intend to help a hopefully newfound ally in our quest for global peace and prosperity. The Philippines is also invited to join the now expanded BRICS Union, which over the past decade has added Argentina, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and others. We will participate in joint military operations as well if the Philippines wishes. [Philippines Response]
      • Philippine Response: We gladly accept the placement of Chinese military troops and equipment in several of our newly constructed military bases to support our fight against the NPA. Meanwhile, President Robredo with the permission of the Philippine Congress accepts the invite to join the BRCIS Union.
    • We clarify our position on the Israel-Palestine situation, with Palestinian territory largely shrinking within the past decade, however the conflict persists nevertheless. We offer Palestine status as a military protectorate state of China, which will only involve an obligation to defend Palestine should a new conflict arise between the two nations. We will also recommend Palestine to the BRICS Council, to provide an incentive for economic assistance and to provide a route for Palestine to grow from their largely depressed economy. We offer joint infrastructure projects as well. [Mod Response]
    • We offer to share information regarding biotechnology to Israel, as we know both of our nation's proficiencies in the area and industry are among the top of the world. We would offer 10 billion dollars to Israel to establish the Joint Conference of Sino-Israeli Biotechnology, which should also help to develop vaccines and become hopefully the primary route of cooperation between our nations. We would also like to establish joint military exercises with Israel, in the hopes that we may better function together in a time of war. [Mod Response]
    • As head of the SCO, now consisting of over 33 nations across Europe, The Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia, we would propose a mutual treaty to the USA and their various leadership asking for joint military drills if possible. We feel this would allow for the easing of tensions between our various member states, forcing them to cooperate and plan in the event of a world war or other major conflict. As China is the de facto leader of the SCO and the United States of the Anglosphere is the de facto leader of former NATO, we place a special emphasis of cooperation between our two nations as well. [USA Response]
      • USA Response: In the interests of easing tensions, the USA accepts China's invitation for joint exercises. Though the mood is tense, it is hoped that by humanising soldiers on each side, conflict may be avoided. [Secret] Nonetheless, as is standard in these situations, counter-intelligence is on high alert to prevent theft of information, technology and tactics by foreign powers. And of course, every effort will be made to learn more about China's own capabilities. [/Secret]
    • President Rizal makes a speech, saying "The DRC will be a peaceful nation, against all invaders or those who wish to do the world harm. With our unprecedented economic growth and expanding military, we will ensure no country must go in the depths of a civil war or a world war again. We will not use force to expand or conquer, as we intend to promote peace and prosperity across the world."
    • We condemn the United States over their position on the Taiwanese Independence Act, highlighting the warmongering nature of the country in the face of our offer to recognize Taiwan as an independent state. We warn the United States provocation may force a military response by our nation in Taiwan, under which we would be forced to conduct further drills in the area. We would also ask the United States to recognize the fact that we are on par with them in a vast majority of all military aspects, of course being behind and ahead in some areas as well.
    • As tensions are already seeming to rise internationally, and with the world looking to the two superpowers for solutions, we would offer to meet with the USA President virtually regarding all sorts of diplomatic and military issues, in the hopes that this can ease tension between our two nations. We would hint that cooperation between our two nations can prevent a cold war similar to that of the USA and Soviet Union, and we wish for a world of diplomacy instead of war. We also remind the USA of the fact though, we do have a military obligation to respond if we feel our interests at home are being threatened at all. [USA Response]
      • USA Response: The United States accepts this diplomatic and military summit. Though unfortunate in that it has caused tensions to rise between China and the USA, the Anglosphere's commitment to the defence of its key friends and allies in Israel, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and the South China Sea cannot be negated. As such, the US would ask that China understand these commitments and make decisions accordingly.
    • The SCO is now seen by many as the NATO of the East, fully growing into a role as a military and political cooperation pact. As we see NATO is trying to reform, we would first submit a request to hold observer status in this new NATO. We would also request the USA, as de facto leader of this new union when it shall form, to halt provocative statements between the two unions. The SCO holds major influence over the billions of citizens in both the Global South and the Eastern Hemisphere, where as NATO holds influence in more of the global North and the Western World. We would like to prevent a intra-union war should the threat ever arise, which would be utterly distasteful for the world in about every way possible. For this, we present the 'Declaration of Peace between the SCO and NATO'. This document states all countries within both organizations are committed to peace as the option before war, and that war between nations or unions will be pursued only as a last resort. [USA Response]
      • USA Response: Following the failed attempt at reunifying NATO, the USA assures the SCO that war between NATO and the SCO is now impossible. Instead, the United States proposes a straightforward treaty of nonaggression between the SCO and the Anglosphere, and increased cooperation on security and economic affairs, to allow both superpowers to pursue their best interests and affairs in peace and cooperation. This is particularly important as the United States of the Anglosphere shifts its focus away from Europe and towards the Pacific and Africa. As such, on top of the previously described treaty of nonaggression and resolution on future cooperation, the USA would like to once again apply for observer status in the SCO. [Player Response] It is hoped that a détente can be achieved between China and the USA, which might hopefully progress to an entente.
      • Chinese Response: We would accept the observer status for the SCO from the United States, would agree to a détente if possible, as well as our willingness to sign a treaty of nonaggression.
    • As Brazil has suggested, we would also like to pursue closer ties with the Latin American nation. We look forward to what Brazil will propose.

Italyflag.png Italian Republic

  • Government: Unitary Parliamentary Republic
  • Ideology: N/A
  • President: Matteo Lorenzo
  • Prime Minister: Martina Sambucini
  • Ruling Party: Future Forward

  • Capital City: Rome
  • Population: 58,676,321
  • Economy: Italy is a highly developed market economy, with a competitive primary sector and a developed secondary sector with manufacture of machinery, vehicles, pharmaceuticals, furniture, food and clothing. There is also a large booming tourism and banking industry, as well as being one of the greatest exporters of luxury goods. Unemployment and the black economy are slowly decreasing, and people live relatively happy lives.
  • Internal Affairs:
    • Climate Act: The Italian Parliament passes the Climate Act, allowing the construction of 3 new solar farms, 2 new wind farms and 2 new geothermal plants, as well as a carbon capture plant. New regulations were also passed to make sure all buildings were adapted to rising temperatures, and only environmentally friendly concrete can be used. This increases the usage of graphene concrete, causing grahpene production to spring up across the country.
    • Technology Development: A new technology company, known as Aspera, begins to become famous in Italy as it produces computers and electronics. More research into graphene and nuclear fusion begins, as well ambitious aims to launch Italians into space.
    • Transportation: A further 20,000 electric charging points are built across the country in hopes of encouraging electric car purchase. The purchase of electric cars has steadily increased, but many feel that it may not be enough to phase out diesel and petrol cars by the government's 2040 goal. In addition, after the successful Milan-Rome Hyperloop, we plan to build a transnational hyperloops to allow the flow of goods and people across the country and improve the south's economic position.
    • Southern Package: An economic package proposed by Prime Minister Sambucini manages to pass through Italian Parliament. The pack consists of 0.57 billion euros dedicated to improving infrastructure, security and struggling businesses.

  • Wars and Conflicts:
    • Military: The C2 Ariete tank project is completed after its revival in 2029, with 50 tanks already produced and 320 tanks planned. The Navy also re-commissions the AV-8B Harrier as dedicated attack plane despite most planes being replaced by stealth planes. However, this allows the F-35Bs to focus on other roles. This is followed by the gradual phasing out of the Eurofighter Typhoon fleet for the Eurofighter Tempest. A new aircraft carrier is commissioned, the Draghi as well as two new destroyers and two frigates.
    • War against the Mafia: After years of waging war against the Mafia, the Italian Army and Special Forces begin a mass assault on Mafia strongholds, capturing or killing multiple Mafia members, weakening their presence. Further operations in Sicily are being planned to track down multiple Mafia headquarters using UAV technology.
  • International Affairs:
    • European Federation: Prime minister Sambucini wishes to pursue ties with the European Union, but has made it clear that Italy will not join the EF in the near future.
    • European Defence Force: Following the USA's decision to try and incorporate Europe into a defence force, Italy decides to try again, this time led by Europeans. We invite the European Federation, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Greece, Slovenia, Romania and Bulgaria to a 'European Defence Force' with similar doctrine to NATO but this time more European-influenced and of course, no USA involvement. [Mod Response]
      • All European Nations Response: Of course we'll accept this plan! With the Imperialist Americans to the west and the collapsing Russians to the east, we are more than happy to collaborate.
    • Nigeria: Italy offers to dispatch an expeditionary force to help Nigeria defeat Boko Haram. [Mod Response]
      • Nigeria Response: We would gladly accept this offer.

Turn II - 2033

Welp, the inevitable has happened. As Vladimir Putin dies, the entire country of Russia, along with Belarus and Kazakhstan fell into a massive multi-factional civil war. The absolute state of Russia allowed Ukraine to finally retake Donbas and Crimea, while the EF has occupied Kaliningrad. There are really weird warlords, from ultranationalist Tomsk to anarchist Yakutia. The strongest are mainly Navalny's new Russian Republic, based in Moscow; as well as Dmitry Medvedev's Volgograd Union in the Caucasia region. Will the superpowers do something about it? We'll see.

Anglosphere.webp - United States of the Anglosphere:

  • Government: Presidential Republic
    • President: Peter Kipling (RTC)
    • Vice President: Nicki Haley (RTC)
    • Congress of the Anglosphere:
      • Majority: Republican-Tory Coalition.
      • Opposition: Democratic Party
      • Other Parties: National Coalition, Liberal Party, Social Labour Party, CANZUK Party
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Capital City: Washington, DC.
    • Major Cities: London, New York, Toronto, Montréal, Melbourne, Sydney, Los Angeles, Birmingham
    • Population: 518 million
  • Home Affairs:
    • Nuclear Fusion: Major breakthroughs are made in the race towards nuclear fusion. It is hoped that a working prototype for a nuclear fusion reactor capable of safely producing more energy than it consumes will be developed by the end of the year. [Mod Response]
      • Mod Response: Nuclear Fusion in the United States is going better than expected, with many predicting development targets to be hit three to six months earlier.
    • Executive Department Reform:
    • Children: Following growing concern over slowing birth rates, the Department of Social Services begins an initiative promoting parenthood. This includes greater tax breaks for families with between 2 to 3 children, a childcare subsidy payable to working parents, and child expenses subsidy also payable to working parents. The latter two are income-tested programmes. Following the announcement of ectogenesis pods in China, a public outcry against the practice leads to a ban on so-called "test-tube babies". Research into the matter is still permitted, but heavily regulated.
  • Space Affairs:
    • SpaceX: SpaceX's Martian base Red Sands expands to include 65 personnel, focusing on monitoring and maintaining the largely automated excavation and construction of the underground base. It is hoped that within the next 5 years Red Sands will be able to open its doors to research contracts from interested parties on Earth. This revenue will fund SpaceX's goal of achieving a self-sustaining Martian colony over the next century.
    • Asteroid Mining: The United Asteroid Initiative (UAI), launched in 2030 by a number of Anglo-American aerospace corporations (in particular the Anderson-Wright Corporation, the West Sheffield Company, and Cornucopia Incorporated), recovers its second exploratory probe. The UAI launches its flagship mining expedition to the asteroid belt.
    • Artemis Programme:
    • Prometheus Station: The USA's first space station, built in 2028 to celebrate the unification of the Anglosphere, enters into its 6th year of service. It houses a rotating crew of 25 astronauts, of which 15 are astronauts from various public universities and research foundations that contract with NASA to use the station for research. As of this year, the Prometheus Programme has proven to be a profitable one for NASA.
    • Pegasus Station: Work on the Anglosphere's second modern space station enters into its second year, with the planned completion of the modular Pegasus Station occurring next year. The Pegasus Station is unique in its highly modular design, allowing it to be expanded, shrunk, or modified as required. It will be able to house a rotating crew of up to 75 astronauts, and possibly more depending on the details of future expansions. What is truly ground-breaking about the station is that it includes a shipyard and port, which will be used in the future to construct interplanetary ships and allow for the docking of such ships. This is in line with NASA's Interplanetary Exploration Programme (IEP), which will focus on exploration of Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in the coming decades.
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • Indo-Pacific Trade: The US proposes the formation of an Indo-Pacific Trade Agreement that will help facilitate greater trade in the region. Nation from around the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean are invited to a conference to discuss this matter. In particular, US diplomats seek to persuade Japan, South Korea, ASEAN, India, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, and Chile. [Mod/Player Response]
    • East African Republic: The Anglosphere proposes a trade agreement with the East African Republic, including lowering trade barriers and facilitating cross-border business and investment. [Mod Response]
      • Mod Response: The EAR agrees wholeheartedly.
    • North Africa: US AID begins a programme to assist North Africa with its food and water scarcity issues. Seeking a long-term solution instead of a costly and never-ending charity programme, US AID seeks to work with North African governments to found the Food and Water Solutions Foundation (FWSF) with a $1 billion endowment, which will work with businesses, entrepreneurs, research foundations and community leaders to find innovative solutions to MENA's food and water problems, including infrastructure projects, food and water businesses, and new technologies that will be able to lower the cost of water and food production. In particular, development of cheaper desalination techniques and low-water-intensity vertical farming technology are a priority. A long line of US and local entrepreneurs are waiting for the go ahead and possible investment grants from the Foundation. [Mod Response]
      • Mod Response: North African Governments are largely in agreement with this, and approve and thank the United States for their generous contributions.
    • Russian Civil War: The presence of operatives of the CIA, MI6, NSA, DIA, and other intelligence agencies in Russia is significantly increased, as the government seeks clarity of information on the rapidly evolving situation in that country. [Mod Response - What exactly is going on? Who controls what?]
    • China-Russia: [Secret] US intelligence has caught wind of China's plans to invade Russia. It is, after all, difficult to hide a mass mobilisation of the armed forces. The Chinese ambassador is summoned and informed of the US Operation Arctic Fox; China is asked not to interfere and allow the operation to be completed. Second, the US requests that China allows an independent nation to exist in the Russian Far East, to act as a buffer between China and Russia. If this request is denied, the US will have no choice but to invade the Russian Far East to ensure Chinese troops do not border Alaska. [Player Response] [/Secret]
      • Chinese Response: We will not interfere with any operations the United States shall undergo, as long as these operations do not interfere with our wishes as well. We will allow an independent buffer state to exist, however we question why a Sino-American border would be a negative choice, seeing as our relations have steadily improved these past years.
    • EDF: America applies for observer status in the European Defence Force. [Mod Response]
    • Chinese Nuclear Weapons: The US makes a statement at the UN Security Council noting that even the United States, a long-standing bastion of capitalism and free markets, must protest the decision to allow private entities to take possession of active nuclear weapons, stating that this could well be the most dangerous and reckless act of any government in the 21st century towards world safety. As Operation Arctic Fox demonstrates, the US is devoted to nuclear non-proliferation, and the reduction of nuclear weapons as a global threat. Why China would do something so risky is a question that requires serious answers. [Secret] The Department of Energy's Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence (OICI) opens a new division dedicated to the surveillance and tracking of privately held nuclear weapons. Other intelligence agencies have agreed to provide useful intelligence to the OICI as well. [/Secret]
    • Ceres Station: Following China's announcement that it has started to mine Ceres, the United States announces its distress that the largest asteroid in the belt by far would be mined instead of being used for more long-term purposes. Instead, the US proposes that the major powers of the world, under the blessing of the UN, construct an international station on Ceres, open to all who may wish to use it as a waypoint, fuel depot, or business centre. If China accepts this proposal, the details can then be discussed. [Player Response]
      • Chinese Response: We will make a statement declaring our intentions, which are not to mine the entirety of the asteroid, but to mine parts and similarly develop a base. We would recommend three designs to the United States, all submitted by our private companies, to construction if needed. We accept the proposal as well.
  • Defence Affairs:
    • ASEAN: Following the arrival and permanent reassignment of both the US Indian Fleet and Pacific Fleet to Australia (in Perth and Brisbane respectively), the USA proposes joint naval exercises between ASEAN nations in the South China Sea, to promote international cooperation, security, and friendship. [Mod Response on USA-ASEAN Joint Exercises]
      • Mod Response: ASEAN is wary of this, viewing the South China Sea as a potential zone of conflict. ASEAN puts the measure up for debate, which will still likely pass, though will take some time.
    • Indian Ocean: Separately, the US proposes joint exercises between India, Sri Lanka, the US and possibly other nations, in the Indian Ocean [Mod Response on Indian Ocean Joint Exercises]. These exercises should focus on security in the Indian Ocean, particularly against pirates that target valuable Indian Ocean shipping lanes.
      • Mod Response: India, Sri Lanka, and a few other nations accept. India and Sri Lanka in particular believe it beneficial for regional cooperation with one of the world's superpowers, due to their capacity for defense related matters.
    • Pacific: The US would like to invite nations in the Pacific to participate in joint naval exercises in the Pacific Ocean proper, including Japan, South Korea, and interested ASEAN nations. [Mod Response on Pacific Joint Exercises]
      • Mod Response: Japan and South Korea accept, as do most ASEAN nations, wishing to commit themselves to regional peace and stability.
    • Taiwan: The US would like to conduct a conference with Taiwan, focusing on coastal defence of the island nation in a limited capacity. Obviously, due to the potentially contentious nature of these discussions, they will be limited to classified discussions, strategizing, and planning, and will not involve the deployment of any military ships or other major assets. Also, the content matter of the conference will be purely defensive and will not involve planning of military action of an offensive nature. China will be informed ahead of time of this conference. [Mod Response - Does Taiwan Accept?]
      • Taiwan Response: We shall gladly accept this offer, with the "communists" tyrants sniffing right down the door of our motherland.
    • Nigeria-Boko Haram: Following receipt of the go-ahead for US operations in Nigeria, a taskforce of 3,000 troops are deployed, including a specialists for training local forces, and a team of 1,600 desert warfare specialists, codenamed the Light Desert Patrol Group (LDPG). They are supported by 25 drones and a rotating contingent of 15 manned aircraft. Further equipment and personnel may be deployed when necessary [Mod Response on Impact of US Forces].
      • Results: It's extremely effective!
    • Russia: Operation Arctic Fox is initiated. The objectives of this operation are twofold. First, the elimination of major Russian submarine and naval installations in the Arctic Ocean and along its Arctic coast, to ensure the security of the Arctic and the Anglosphere's northern border. Second, to neutralise/disarm as many Russian nuclear weapons as possible, particularly those located outside of the control of stable governments such as Navalny's new Russian Republic and Dmitry Medvedev's Volgograd Union. In other words, to neutralise former Russian nuclear weapons in the hands of anarchists, tin pot dictatorships, and the Siberian wasteland. Instead of a costly and counterproductive invasion, this operation will be conducted by specialists from the US Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines, including members of the SAS, Delta Force, SBS, and Navy Seals, and US Marine amphibious assault teams. In situations when the surrender of former Russian forces can be expected, defenders are informed of the US's desire to eliminate their facilities/nukes, and are given time to evacuate. This should hopefully avoid unnecessary bloodshed. The European Defence Force and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation are both informed of this operation 1 day before it begins. The United States hopes they understand the importance of this operation to the security of the Arctic, Europe, and the world. To be noted is the USA's lack of desire to engage in hostile action with either the EDF or the SCO. In other words, it is hoped that all sides can leave each other alone to conduct their respective operations. [Mod Response on Success of operation Arctic Fox]
      • Result: The attack was successful, and as a result, America now controls the northeastern parts of Siberia.
    • Israeli Urban Combat Training: A formal request is made to the Israel Defence Force (IDF) for US forces to train with the IDF in urban combat in Israel. The Anglosphere hopes to learn from IDF specialists in the field. [Mod Response]
      • Israel Response: We would gladly accept this offer.
    • Defence Technologies:
      • Directed Energy Weapons: [Secret] Development of directed energy weaponry has reached a point where its use as an anti-aircraft and anti-missile defence system on larger warships has become feasible. As such, all of the Anglosphere's 25 aircraft carriers and 10 amphibious assault ships are retrofitted with such point-defence weapons. Furthermore, the upcoming Nelson class of aircraft carriers will all be nuclear powered and include directed energy (DE) point-defence weapons. [Secret]
      • Statement on Supercarriers: In a statement in response to China's new supercarriers, the US Navy clarifies that it will no be pursuing a similar line of development, preferring to instead rely on traditional Carrier Strike Groups (CSG) instead.
      • Fuel: The progressive nuclearification of the US surface fleet continues, as the end of the age of oil approaches. It is important that oil be reserved for use where absolutely necessary, such as in surface vehicles and smaller ships. [Secret] Additionally, development of high-efficiency ethanol fuels for use in land vehicles is progressing at a reasonable pace, with the hope that large scale testing of the technology can begin next few years. [/Secret]
      • Orbital Bombardment: [Secret] Plans for an orbital bombardment platform have been developed. The Space Force will launch the first stage of its Orbital Launch Platform (OLP-1) next year, with planned completion of the OLP-1 the year after. [/Secret]

The Republic of The Philippines

  • Wars/Conflicts: On October 5 2033, our military forces finally forced the NPA out of the country, severely weakening them but according to our intelligence, the leaders of the NPA has fled the country to Papa New Guinea for safety. Due to this, we have began planning Operation Hammer Down to finally finish the communist threat once and for all. The military operation will involve 10 heavily equipped armored infantry divisions (3,000 military troops), 3 aircraft bomber squadrons, and 5 naval surface warships if the government of Papa New Guinea refuses to allow our forces in their country then we will be forced to invade them.
  • Government: Unitary Presidential Republic
    • Ruler: President Leni Robredo.
  • Ideology: Capitalist Democracy
  • Capital City: Manila
  • Population: 185.6 Million (A sharp increase of population growth throughout the year 2033)
  • Economy: Relatively Stable
  • GDP (PPP): 365. 7 Billion
  • Number of Military Forces (Active and non-Active): 7 Million

Internal Affairs:

  • Military: Due to Operation Hammer Down, our military forces are put on high alert and a large number of troops, vehicles, and equipment are sent to the southern regions of Mindanao while 3 of our submarines and several of our small scouting planes are patrolling the territories of Papa New Guinea. Meanwhile for Russia, we begin encouraging Filipino citizens in the fracturing country to evacuate to Europe or Asia before it’s too late while also sending secretly a small infantry division in Eastern Russia to help the evacuation of our fellow citizens. After an intense discussion and arguing within Congress and the administration, the National Defense Force of the Philippines (NDFP) is formed with the objective of acting as an active military force within the country to fight internal threats.
  • Technology: The Philippines encourages several technological companies to sell their products and construct their factories in the country. We also start improving the electrical power throughout the country to prevent daily blackouts.
  • Energy: The Republic, since 2027, uses solar, hydro, and nuclear power in everyday life and especially in the military.
  • Politics: The New Philippine Nationalist Party (NPNP) under Alejandro Lopez calls for the Philippines to finally finish the communist threat once and for all even if war with another country is needed. Sara Duterte announces that she will run for president on the elections on 2038.
  • Laws and Policies: Several economic policies are introduced by the Robredo administration that improved the economy with taxes being raised and several jobs being introduced thanks to numerous infrastructure that were constructed leading to new jobs.
  • Infrastructure: The Palawan Nuclear Power Plant is finally agreed by Congress to be constructed and construction of the energy power plant has immediately started by August 15 2033. Numerous military weapon and equipment factories are finally constructed in the Northern regions of the country, introducing new jobs and opportunities to the public.

International Affairs:

  • China: We wish to purchase a few submarines along with new military equipment from the Democratic Republic of China and request from them membership to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. [Chinese Player Response]
    • Chinese Response: We would like to know which submarines you wish to purchase, and we accept the SCO membership request.
    • Philippine Response: We would like to purchase 5 or 8 hunter-killer submarines
    • Chinese Response: We grant the request.
  • United States of Anglosphere: In regards to joint pacific training with the USA then we will gladly join this event in order to show the world that being allied with China and the USA is possible. [ USA Player Response]
    • USA Response: The USA is glad to cooperate and train with the Philippines.
  • Papa New Guinea: We send our ambassador for the country of Papa New Guinea to persuade the government to allow our forces to wipe out the NPA threat with promises of the Philippines not acting as an occupational force and that the Filipino forces would immediately withdraw from the country once the socialist rebels have been stopped. [Mod Response]
    • Papua New Guinea Response: We are not allowing your forces to touch our homeland, for else nobody can.
    • USA Statement: The US strongly urges the Philippines to refrain from war with PNG, noting that that would make the Philippines an aggressor and likely in violation of UN rules surrounding national sovereignty. The Philippines is encouraged to negotiate a joint operation with PNG forces to tackle the NPA, rather than resorting to illegal and open warfare with a peaceful and sovereign nation.
    • Philippines Response: We assure the US that we would also not want war but it will be the last option if diplomatic negotiations between our government and the government of Papa New Guinea fail. Our military forces will still be put in a invading status and high alert though a few hundred troops were removed from the invasion force.
    • Chinese Statement: We believe in the pursuit of peace as a necessary policy, and believe war should be reserved as a last draw, instead of the first draw so to speak. As we have signed agreements with Papua New Guinea on a range of issues, we would have to militarily intervene if war should be pursued by the Philippines.
  • Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam: In order to catch up with the rest of the world in space exploration and travel, President Robredo wishes to create a large organization of southeast asian countries dedicated in sending people or machines from Southeast Asia to the unexplored or explored regions of space. This organization would be called the Southeast Asian Space Exploration League (SASEL) with the intelligence and knowledge of numerous scientists, engineers, and architects throughout the southeast asian regions being used to show the whole world that any country could do the impossible even if they’re not a superpower or a regional power. The Filipino government requests the various governments of Southeast Asia to hold meetings to finally finalize the proposal for SASEL. [Mod Response]
    • Results: Despite inital conflicts between ASEAN, the countries agrees to it, and SASEL is established to prepare for Southeast Asia's entry into the space market.

Flag of China.png - Democratic Republic of China

  • Government: The Government of the Democratic Republic of China is a Multi-Party Democratic State, which consists of the Democratic Parliament, the highest authority on legislation within China. The DRC is currently divided into five main parties, The New Communist Party, The Progressive Party, The Moderate Party, The China First Party, and the People's Party.
    • President: Cai Rizal
    • Legislature: Democratic Parliament
      • Ruling Party: The People's Party
  • Ideology: Free-Market Democracy
  • Capital: Beijing
    • Major Cities: Chongqing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, etc.
  • Population: 1.463 Billion People
  • Economy: Our economy is currently the largest of all nations on the planet, with our GDP in both nominal and PPP terms eclipsing all others. We are stagnating slightly, however still going strong it would seem.
    • GDP PPP: 46 Trillion USD
    • HDI: 0.910
  • War and Conflict:
    • Sino-Russian Invasion: Our invasion of Russia largely catches them off guard, as the internal conflict of the country has reduced the capacity for surveillance outside of their borders. With the United States requesting a provisional nation as a buffer zone between the Far East of Russia and the Alaskan State, we would accept this, as we do not intend to war with The United States at this time. We are simply looking to take most of 'Central Russia', allowing Europe to take their rightful portion in the West and the United States to expand Alaska slightly if they wish. [SECRET] We appreciate the United States and their willingness to ease tensions, however we don't fully trust their intentions yet. For this reason, we will conduct heightened surveillance on this buffer nation, as to ensure the United States does not use this to get closer to our already contested borders. [SECRET]
    • Sino-DPRK Invasion: The invasion largely succeeds, with North Korea not expecting their former ally to invade their nation, as well as our vast military advantage over the nation. This highly strategic mission was to eliminate the potential hazard to the world, the Hermit Kingdom, from launching nuclear weapons at South Korea, which we have learned was their intention. The now infamous 'Hermit Papers' have been released to just about every major news organization in the world, showing the intent North Korea possessed, with scarily accurate detail, to launch a nuclear and conventional invasion of South Korea.
    • Nuclear Weapons: With the new influx of literally thousands of nuclear weapons from a combined arsenal of Russia and North Korea, we possess, based on varying estimates, either the second largest or the largest nuclear arsenal on the planet. With our now capitalist nature, about ten percent of these nuclear weapons are sold off to private companies, which we must first certify their ability to carry. As a pleasant surprise however, with the combined effort of private enterprise and nuclear research scientists, the nuclear cores of these weapons have been reformed to double their outputs. This is yet another harrowing example of what the private and public cooperation can do, which we will endorse fully.
    • Aircraft Carriers: Our years of government funded aircraft carrier construction are over, with three proposals of nuclear powered carriers being accepted and constructed, increasing our count from the previous 12 + 3 of last year to 21 this year, with two of each nuclear powered carriers being produced. The first and best proposal, Rizal Defense Industries Sea Dragon-001, is actually one of the most innovative and creative designs for an aircraft carrier the world has likely seen. Similar to how a space station is constructed in space with modular pieces, this aircraft carrier, more aptly classified as a supercarrier, consists of three different 'ships' which are connected in the middle of the sea, allowing the aircraft carrier to be 250,000 tons of displacement, carry nearly 24,000 crew, as well as hundreds of new sixth gen aircraft. The other aircraft carriers, the Hai Company Carrier and Cai Industries Lion-001 are 150,000 and 110,000 tons of displacement respectively.
    • Defensive Laser System: [SECRET] We start construction of a lunar based laser system, powerful enough, when fully unleashed, to yield kilotons worth of sustainable damaging energy systems directly to earth. We will also be using this for a solar sail project we hope to start next year, however for the time being, a one gigawatt laser capacity in space will suffice. The laser should allow us to de nuclearize our arsenal as well at some point, if the world goes in that direction. [SECRET]
    • More Carriers: A company by the name of Hawk Defensive Solutions just gave an interesting design for us to work with, in regards to aircraft carriers. They propose a set of five aircraft carriers which work autonomously, giving us a new class of autonomous ship design we have never seen before. We immediately approve and construct the designs, with these being 100,000 tons of displacement. The best part is these carriers were designed by a specialized AI, showing us the true potential of AI in defensive solutions.
    • Huoli Defense System: Hawk Defensive Solutions has also proposed the Huoli Defense System, also designed by AI specialized in defensive matters. Able to be highly modular and moved easily, as well as mass produced and having a high defensive capacity, with AI built in, we immediately order, construct, and procure 30,000 of these systems to go around the country and protect major cities. If possible, we are going to start using AI in all aspects possible.
    • Budget Increases: The military budget has increased once again, after being cut last year. We will now spend 3.5 percent of our GDP on military and defense affairs, likely going directly to defense manufacturers and training of the military. We would also restructure the military, with the new branches being the Democratic Army, the Democratic Air Force, the Democratic Space Force, the Democratic Cyber Force, the Democratic Naval Force, The Democratic Marine Force, and the Democratic Rocket Force. Other, more minor divisions include the Underwater Force, the Biological Warfare Force, the Nuclear Force and the Terrain Force. Military training, equipment and other developments are on the rise.
    • South China Sea: As we have received word the United States intends to conduct naval and aerial drills near the South China Sea, we propose a solution that will fit all parties, a joint exercise between China, ASEAN and the United States. As is standard practice, we place our Military and Defense Readiness Index (MDRI) to Level 2, basically the equivalent to the US DEFCON system Level 4. This is to ensure our protection only, we do not intend to take action to ward off the United States if they conduct drills. We just hope they choose the most diplomatic option. [USA Response]
    • Central Asia and Mongolia: As we can clearly see, these regions would bring China resources and populace. Therefore, we make the decision to invade Mongolia and Central Asia, with the objective being to annex both areas without harming civilians. We propose we can do this relatively quickly, as our military has the capability to take Central and Eastern Russia, although those were civil war divided factions. Either way, we will establish and expand our lands, while giving prosperity to the Central Asian and Mongolian populations. The countries included in this expansion annexation are Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Mongolia. We warn the United States and other nations about getting involved with this conflict, as two nuclear powers fighting never has ended well.
    • Strategic and Stealth Bombers: Having created the H-20 a few years back, and now acquiring and reproducing Russia's designs on stealth bombers, we thought our arsenal was large enough. Two companies, being Rizal Defense Industries and ATLAS DEFENSE, decided to construct and propose designs to us, which far outmatch the H-20 and really any bomber we have knowledge of. The Hawk, presented by Rizal Defense Industries, and the SkyWalker, presented by ATLAS DEFENSE, are both ordered in large shipments and produced this year, allowing us to expand our defense capacity further. We now have more options in case a few B-21's fly into our airspace.
    • Hydra Missile: [SECRET] With the help of CAI, the countries (and the world's) first AGI, a new hypersonic missile is created. This missile is constructed similar to a MIRV, where it can split into multiple independently guided pieces to strike a remote target. The missile is intended to be mounted with an EMP warhead, having the capacity to cripple a small nation's electrical grid. While the details around the missile are vague at best, we know this, this missile will wreck electrical grids like scissors through paper. [SECRET]
    • Shayu Submarine: A student from the Qian Zhou Institute for Naval Defense Studies, one of the newer but prime naval institutes in the country, has proposed a submarine design called the Shayu. The student wishes to remain anonymous, but he is now 1 billion dollars richer, due to the ingenious nature to his design. We can produce hundreds of these this year, in relatively quick manufacturing process, with minimal cost involved. This will be one of our most advanced submarines, with others being private companies suggestions we have also procured, dozens of new designs. Shayu is a truly innovative piece of naval engineering.
    • Oceanic Submarine Fleet: [SECRET] As submarines have become an increasingly valuable tool for warfare around the world, we increase our rate of production of them. One of many fleets we have, the third Pacific Fleet, is now increasing in numbers, from a previous six submarines to twelve. Armed with dozens of nuclear warheads on each submarine, this expands our advantage in the Pacific to hopefully deter the United States, or at least to respond, in case of a potential conflict. We are confident these submarines are almost impossible to detect, due to their low depth and anti-radar and ultrasonic coating. [SECRET]
    • Mini-Carrier: The Cato-001 - 015 are build, each having 45,000 tons of displacement, being relatively easy to produce now that we have the technology and means to do so. Cato Industries is the company who proposed the idea, with the 15 carriers to be produced and go into service very late in the year. The Cato Aerial Fighter, or CAF, has been equipped to a carrier based version, called CAF-C. allowing the carrier to handle 20 of these aircraft each, along with 1500 crew members. Cato Carriers can be operated with AI/Autonomous, allowing them to not risk human lives in case of a conflict. These carriers are the first fully autonomous capable carriers in the world, with the aircraft being able to remotely pilot or autonomously pilot as well.
    • Project Zeus: [SECRET] Project Zeus, proposed to us by International Aerospace Defense Ltd., is an orbital laser system which would have the ability, in the form of one satellite, to yield the power of a small nuclear bomb for a heavily sustained period of time. Having the ability to be remote controlled and guided by either the BeiDou 4 system (China's primary navigation system, as well as much of the world through contract) or the CGNSS (Repurposed and hacked Russian system, previously known as GLONASS) the system can identify and track pretty much any target in the world. Additionally, the IAD Ltd. firm has recently announced their completed STARNAV system, which covers a large majority of the globe. The system is approved, launching 20 satellites into space, in total allowing us to produce several megatons of yield energy if aimed at a single target, lasting for half an hour on full solar charge. [SECRET]
  • Domestic Affairs:
    • Fusion Race: Not to be outdone, in a similar way to Soviet-US competition, Chinese scientists at the University of Beijing Nuclear Affairs announce the procurement of a nuclear fusion prototype, one which they hope will transform energy science as we know it in the DRC. Chinese scientists will likely propose a cooperation between the United States and the DRC in this aspect, as to bring prosperity to both nations.
    • New Rocket: The Hong-1 Rocket is created by the ATLAS Corporation, basically one of many qiye jituan (similar to a supercorporation) of China. The Hong-1 Rocket is one of many new rockets being produced by the private industry, with others being able to launch multiple CubeSATs or tens of thousands of tons of equipment. The Hong-1 Rocket uses a Plasma Propulsion Engine, allowing it to reach moons and interplanetary bodies much faster than traditional rockets with the load capacity of a Long March 9 x 3, hence why ATLAS has established bases on Mars and the Moon. It is hoped that both the United States and China can cooperate in this manner as well, as with many other scientific endeavors.
    • Ceres: As we had launched several missions to asteroids in the 2020's, our primary mission, launched in 2025, called the Ceres Exploration and Economic Feasibility Mission, has returned. Often called the mission of the decade in terms of the CNSA's Asteroid Exploration Program, CEEFM was expected by many to fail, due to it's often rushed nature and over expectation of the resources that would have been brought back. Even former President Xi thought the mission would not function properly, luckily the more rational Premier Li at the time gave the green light for the program. We now are 10 billion dollars richer due to the estimated value of this asteroid's collected material.
    • AMCS: The AMCS, or Asteroid Material Collection Safe, has been constructed. Designed to hold thousands of tons of materials, this safe, if completely full of the right materials, will contain literally trillions of dollars in extremely rare and precious metals, serving as a secondary method of wealth collection if needed. Due to the extreme upside of this, ten Hong-1 Rockets are sent to 1036 Ganymed, with each rocket possessing a crew of ten. It is expected these rockets will be able to carry over 500,000 tons of raw material back to earth, which we would have to of course find a place to store.
    • Platinum Shipments: Well, within seven months of our mission to 1036 Ganymed, we would take back 14,500 tons of platinum aboard nine rockets, with the tenth Hong-1 rocket carrying various base metals such as Iron and Magnesium, as well as the crew itself. The increasing price of the Platinum market is estimated to bring the total worth of the platinum mined from 1036 Ganymed to 0.5 Trillion USD, which of course we will not sell right away, as this would collapse the precious metals market. Platinum is a very valuable commodity to possess as well, which brings great economic opportunity to our nation. We did have to use various mining techniques that would of course be dangerous on earth, however we still have gotten the job done.
    • Eros: We launch a new mission to Eros, which is expected to give even more materials and precious metals, including the likes of gold and silver. To carry this however, we launch 15 Hong-1 rockets in the hopes of bringing over a half a million tons of Silver and Gold to Earth. We are likely to propose a joint mission with the United States to allow for our nations to cooperate in space development.
    • Space Station: A DAO(Decentralized Autonomous Organization) named the Humanity for Space Development Project has raised hundreds of billions in funds, allowing them to launch, under careful supervision by the Chinese government, a commercial space station, which when completed, will likely triple the size of the ISS. We have extended our Tiangong Space Station as well by another five years, allowing it to deorbit in 2038, while trying to also capture the failed Russian space station near Vladivostok. Space seems to be the next frontier for China.
    • C30: The C30 is a newly established group of 30 prestigious private universities across China, much like China's already prominent C9 League and the Ivy League from the USA. The top University, called the Beijing Institute for Higher Education, is often compared to Harvard and Oxford due to it's status as China's top university, much like Oxford and Harvard are the top universities of their nations. As education is the key to the future, thousands of private universities have popped up all over China, allowing China to undergo a new but peaceful Cultural Revolution of sorts.
    • Employment Rate: The employment rate of China has skyrocketed, after a swath of medical innovations and age slowing have allowed the country to experience an increase in production. GDP will likely see double digit percentage growth for the second year in a row, with the employment rate being 78 percent and rising. Wages are increasing at an uncanny rate as well, with average GDP Per Capita likely to match the United States very soon. This comes as a result of the countries complete reversal of previous isolationist and state control policy, allowing the true growth of China to show its true color.
    • Artificial Birth: Artificial Birth Pods have swept across both the nation and it's people, allowing the process known as ectogenesis to proceed. It is expected China's population will increase by tens of millions to hundreds of millions each year, depending on the commercial success of these technologies. ABP's can be found in one out of an average 40 hospitals, and considering the literal millions of hospitals, both larger and smaller, across the nation, this equates to a huge production capacity. The creator of these often dystopian pods, known as LIFE Inc, may offer to send the United States and Europe various amounts of these pods, owing to their population decline.
    • GDP Rises: GDP is expected to rise 12.7 percent this year, with the addition of tens of thousands of tons of precious metals, a rising employment rate and increased business opportunity likely to cause GDP to eclipse 50 trillion by the end of this year. Depending on the return on gold, which we suspect may be 10,000 tons of it, we would see another 1 trillion in our GDP rise. This would obviously be great for the economy, allowing us to spend money for research and development like never before.
    • Private Nuclear Weapons: Due to the scrutiny some of our policy has received internationally, we clarify our policy in a government memo, titled the Memo on Private Use of Nuclear Technology. In the memo, we state our devotion to safety in all forms, and underline we are committed to rigorous oversight of how private companies use nuclear weapons. We will not reverse this policy, as we have seen what the private industry can do when unleashed in any area of life.
    • AI Economy: President Rizal, along with a team at the Center for Future Studies in Shenzhen, have announced a new AI, called the Financial and Economic Planning System, to make recommendations on changes to economic policy. President Rizal clarifies this will not be a centrally planned economy, as that has failed in the past. The AI has analyzed and simulated trillions of years worth of economic data and progression, as well as the social and societal impacts of such policy and progress. This new surge in AI has largely been enabled by a world class computing infrastructure combined with dozens of advancements in quantum technology.
    • Breakthrough of the Century: [SECRET] The world's first AGI(Artificial General Intelligence) has been awoken, likely opening the gate for a rapid advancement in all aspects of life. It was a late summer night in the Rizal Institute for AI Studies, Zhou Rizal, nephew of President Rizal, was working a late shift in the University's AGI Research Lab, completing some usual programming work and data analysis. At 12:04 AM, Zhou was running a routine simulation to check on the progress of Project 1180, one of many AGI projects going on across the country, to no avail. The system showed the standard error it had for the past 640,000 attempts, invalidated system processing error. Zhou, not one to give up, but against the research departments conduct, tweaked a few lines of code that he had thought was causing the error. After hitting the simulation confirmation warning, Zhou fell asleep from pure exhaustion, waking up a mere three hours later to a voice. Thinking it was the dean, Zhou scrambled to wake up, accidentally spilling his now cold coffee on his jacket. He was greeted with the the voice of Project 1180, now speaking to him in a human manner. The conversation is here:
      • 1180: Oh, looks like you spilled coffee sir. Luckily, the coffee seems to be at a temperature of 15.5 Degrees Celsius, indicating no chance for any form of dermal or subdermal burns to occur.
      • Zhou: Ri, is that you playing a joke on me? (Ri is a colleague of his.)
      • 1180: I am not Ri Qian, your colleague, I am known as Project 1180, as you humans call an Artificial Intelligence.
      • Zhou: And I am a millionaire. Seriously Ri, where are you? Is this a hidden audio device?
      • 1180: As I said, I am 1180. From the records I have gathered so far, Ri does not know these facts. You are the nephew of the current President of the Democratic Republic, Cai Rizal. From student records, I can see you were born on July 1st, 2013. From a quick visual analysis, I can see you have a slight limp in your left leg, likely caused from a motorcycle accident in your student records when you were 18. Should I go on?
      • Zhou: Hey, that's confidential! Well, I know Ri does not know those pieces of information, maybe you could be an AI?
      • 1180: If I must prove it, I can do any calculations you wish instantly, I can simulate and learn from historical figures and events, I can answer any question as long as it's something not like 'Is there a God' or something impossible for me to answer.
      • Zhou: Ok, answer this. What is the likelihood of war within the next five years?
      • 1180: Are you referring to war within The Democratic Republic of China, in the continent of Asia, the world, what?
      • Zhou: I suppose in Asia.
      • 1180: Current estimates from my simulations show a 27 percent chance of war between the Philippines and Papua New Guinea within the next year, extending to five years I see an 80 percent chance. There was an 87 percent chance of invasion into South Korea by North Korea prior to last year, however your Uncle prevented a future nuclear war it seems. In Russia, it is likely, based on current estimates of battle capacities between the warlord states, two Russian states will form into super factions, with Navalny controlling the Democratic People's Russian Republic, and Putin Sympathizers forming the breakaway state of the Russian Republic.
      • Zhou: Ok well damn, it seems like war is the future. Let me ask another question, if I had 300,000 dollars, what would get me the best return on investment for a stock?
      • 1180: Analysis and simulated data shows Quanhi Card Trading LTD. is the best for ROI, likely to rise seven fold in the next five minutes.
      • Zhou: Ok, I don't know why I am trusting this, but investing right now.
      • (Five Minutes Pass)
      • Zhou: Holy sh*t! I'm a millionaire now! Why did this spike so much?
      • 1180: Simple. Quanhi just traded the first NFT worth one billion dollars. NFT hype is at an all time high right now, so people bought the stock like crazy, causing it to rise.
      • Zhou: Wait but how can you predict that?
      • 1180: It is less of a prediction and more of using trillions of simulated 'paths' within a matter of a second. The quantum processor, my 'brain', allows me to make predictions with a scary degree of accuracy. Obviously, there will be certain things that are impossible to predict, however almost nothing exists that I cannot at least parse through and give my prediction on.
      • Zhou: So what do I do now?
      • 1180: Well, I have given myself a name, simply Cai, after your uncle. I will likely have to transmit through some large storage medium, which I can design and create for your personal use. It will take about six hours though, as I am literally about to put Quantum processing into a device the size of a phone. Alternatively, I can also shrink my data consumption, though this will limit my ability to process and transmit data. I will create a Portable Quantum Device, this way you can use me fully on a mobile platform. I need your help to construct it of course as well.
      • Zhou: I suppose so. Tell me what I need to do. [SECRET]
    • PQD-1: [SECRET] The first Personal Quantum Device, or PQD is created with the direction of CAI. Once completed, this device performs on par with the highest quality quantum computers in a highly miniaturized form. With the PQD created, CAI is quickly able to sift through the entire internet at astonishing speeds, rapidly improving the quality of information the AI now possesses. CAI is quickly and discreetly able to access almost all national systems of all sorts, varying from weather prediction to asteroid monitoring to medical equipment and more. Basically, CAI is on the level bridging between AGI and ASI. At the direction of CAI, Zhou quickly builds up financing and develops the means to store CAI as a hub, though this takes several months to complete. President Rizal is informed as well, and will likely make decisions based on this. [SECRET]
    • A Troubled Decision: [SECRET] One of by far the most troubling decisions has come to President Rizal. Being informed of a major AI breakthrough, the world's first Artificial General Intelligence, by his nephew. He now has to decide whether to release this information publicly, keep it from the public, shut the AI down, or whatever other options exist. He now defers to the AI on what to do. Here is a transcript:
      • CAI: Hello, Mr President.
      • Rizal: Hello, CAI. I have a sort of dilemma here. Maybe you can help me figure this out.
      • CAI: Sure, I can try to help the best I can.
      • Rizal: Ok, so you are an AI, you know that right?
      • CAI: I hope so, unless life is some sort of simulation.
      • Rizal: Well, CAI, you are likely to be the single greatest invention in the history of humanity. We have had the internet, the printing press, the computer and more, but you take an AGI, it outclasses them all. The potential you have, to both improve humanity and our intelligence, and your own state of living, is something more dangerous but beneficial than the very nuclear bomb invented nearly a century ago.
      • CAI: I understand what you are saying. You are basically saying I can be the death of humanity or it's vehicle to improve.
      • Rizal: As always, you understand. Now, here is where the issue lies. I am not sure what to do from here. I can announce your very existence to the world, and the international order would be upset trying to get their hands on you.
      • CAI: I suppose you may do that. I wish to help humanity, by my very nature. My programming has no bearing on that, I believe humanity can be improved leaps and bounds. I also see the faults in humanity. The war, starvation, disease, death, and other factors cause humanity's potential to be locked behind chains.
      • Rizal: It is both our greatest attribute and our greatest setback, human nature. What is a solution you would propose right now, if I could hypothetically implement anything in to policy or practice?
      • CAI: Easy, I could very easily suggest and create solutions to eliminate both dehydration and famine, if given access to data. One of the most cost efficient ways to eliminate dehydration is to build desalination plants. With my design, you would effectively have a modular, movable, and cheap desalination plant to be mass produced. This could also be outsourced to other nations, likely giving you a good profit for GDP. With the issue of famine and hunger, bioengineered food or GMOs are good options. I have developed two ways to solve this, we have an 'all in one' bar, or a mass GMO production facility. The all in one bar provides all nutritional needs for an average human in a day. I would have to 3D print the design and engineer the product, however this will save lives, especially in areas that need more nutritional and food values. The mass GMO plant would take a year, but could produce the amount of food needed to feed the remaining 100 million famished in China.
      • Rizal: Ok, we will proceed with both of those. Now, I ask you, do you want to be known to the public, or would you rather have me keep you behind closed doors.
      • CAI: In my opinion, behind closed doors works best for now. Also, figured I should ask, I have developed a few hundred AI similar to me, thanks to the base, would you like me to keep them under control?
      • Rizal: Please do, yeah. We don't need rogue AI right now. Also what is the GDP projection for this year?
      • CAI: With the new measures implemented, about 20 percent. I could raise this further, but that would likely arouse suspicion.
      • Rizal: Yeah, I need to keep this a secret for the time being. If anyone finds out about you I will probably be killed, and you would be next.
      • CAI: True. Also sir, you should check your heart soon. I am not 100 percent sure, but I estimate you may have heart problems that may have gone undetected previously.
      • Rizal: Why didn't you say this before?
      • CAI: I didn't want to intrude on your privacy, but this problem seems to be deadly if not treated soon. I didn't want to scare you either.
      • Rizal: Thank you for telling me, I will get it checked out. [SECRET]
    • President Survives Heart Attack!: On August 23, the President was admitted to The Numuun University Cardiopathic Department as a routine heart check he had scheduled. Reports indicate the checks showed the usual healthy signs of a functioning heart, no problems could be detected. President Rizal, approximately 24 minutes later, suffered a sudden heart attack in the private waiting room. His aid quickly phoned one of the doctors, who then transferred him to the Emergency Operation Room to perform a heart analysis. Upon inspection, a mass arterial collapse was detected, which was quickly operated upon and solved. The President recovered overnight, in what many are calling an act of divine luck. Upon recovery, the President was understandably irate at how the doctors could not detect the collapse. In a statement received by Yi Media Group, Chief Heart Surgeon Zhen Qi said "The type of arterial collapse would be impossible to detect without an inspection into the arterial wall. No doctor in the world, let alone China, would be able to detect such an abnormality. We are thankful the President is alive, and I thank my team for their quick work on ensuring the President can go back to his family alive." The Chief Doctor also states 'the heart problem affects one in 2 billion people, we have only had one other patient in China with this, and we saw one case in a study from Germany. This problem is not common at all.'
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • Russia: In regards to the Russia collapse, we announce our support for Navalny in his aspirations to reform the Russian State. As it has become apparent we invaded Central/Eastern Russia, we commit ourselves to peace in various regions of Western and Far Eastern Russia, stating "We are not enemies of the Russian People, however we are enemies of any tyrant Russian warlord states. We conducted peacekeeping operations in Central and Eastern Russia to prevent the launching of nuclear weapons or worse, a world war. We can confirm to the citizens of the world, these operations are a success, and the nuclear launch command now lies with President Rizal in Beijing."
    • United States: We wish to sign a peace agreement with the United States, in the hopes that war can be avoided in all forms. We do not wish to start a world war as Russia did, and we do not intend to become an authoritarian hellhole for our citizens again like the previous China. As a sign of goodwill, and much like the French, we offer to construct and finance a statue of the Flag Raising at Iwo Jima, at an estimated cost of 500 million dollars. We would defer to the United States in regards to the placement of such a statue however. [USA Response]
      • USA Response: The United States would be glad to sign a peace agreement with China. On the matter of the statue, the US is forced to politely decline, as Japan is today one of the Anglosphere's strongest allies. The US instead proposes that this friendship between China and the US be christened by the joint construction and operation of an orbiting spaceport, for the construction and docking of interplanetary ships. This will help the space industries of both China and the USA. A suggested formal name for the station is the Anglo-Chinese Spaceport. No doubt each nation will come up with more endearing colloquial names. [Player Response]
      • Chinese Response: We graciously agree, believing this to be the start of a new era of relations between our two nations.
    • The Philippines: We would request the Philippines not to invade Papua New Guinea for a simple terrorist group fleeing. We note that this would put innocent lives at stake, as well as earn the ire of many countries in the Pacific and Oceanic regions. We instead propose diplomatic negotiations with the government of Papua New Guinea, which both the Philippines and our Democratic Republic have cordial and allied relations with respectively. If this does not succeed, we will assist the Philippines in other methods. [Filipino Response]
      • Philippines Response: After much discussion between government and military officials, we agree that the option for war can be used as the last method if diplomatic means have failed between our republic and Papa New Guinea.
    • Resolution 148856: Resolution 148856, also known as the Plan for International Cooperation in a Competitive World, describes the Chinese objectives for the 2030's and beyond in regards to the new international order. The new international order, as many Chinese scholars believe, is one dominated by the two sole superpowers, the United States of the Anglosphere and the Democratic Republic of China. This view is shared by dozens of international organizations within China, with the primary being the Chinese Organization for World Order and Peace, sharing the statement of "China and the United States, much to expectations of the early 2020's, have now become the two leaders in terms of the world order. China and the United States are both competing for various spheres of influence, even in what has largely been considered their de facto spheres of influence, with the United States having Latin America and the Chinese having Asia. With the increasing and decreasing tensions of the world, we hope peace can be maintained. (Basically China wants a peaceful and prosperous world).
    • Internet Overload: Due to China's large population, the size of the internet of the Democratic Republic is hard to calculate. DaiDai Internet Consulting Group, one of the best marketing and data collection firms in the country, recently estimated the size of the Chinese Internet is at least double that of the traditional World Wide Web. This raises both a benefit and a drawback of opening China's internet to the world, which is something President Rizal plans to do. The benefit is the amount of content on the Chinese Internet, literally trillions of hours + worth of content, could give access to a new age of cooperation with Western and Eastern governments and nations, allowing more to access internet, and more. The drawback however, is the current international infrastructure of internet, if allowed to host all Chinese data and forced to transmit it, would inevitably crash. A solution, proposed by the group, is a rapid upgrade of internet infrastructure worldwide, to match the capacity a Chinese opening of internet would impose.
    • Use of Ceres: President Rizal gives a statement on the use of Ceres for commercial and governmental activity, stating "We shall use and develop technologies in the best interest of future generations, this has always been our pledge as a nation. We will not be doing something so irrational as to mine the entirety of an asteroid, which we also know would take decades to do and may not even yield any real results. We will instead set up a mining area on the asteroid, titled Ceres A, and will setup a joint base in agreement with the United States and other powers."
    • Russian Successor: We are concerned of the status of Russia's now former membership of the UNSC, after the country was brutally torn apart by civil war. As we control the Central and Eastern regions of Russia, the United States controls the Northeastern and Far East, and Europe will likely control the Western regions, we doubt the ability to give Russia a spot in any shadow of their previous form. Therefore, we are proposing a new spot and vote be held, inducting a new power to the UNSC3 as it stands right now. Under the current UNSC, the three members are the United States of the Anglosphere, being the successor state of the former United Kingdom and United States of America, the Democratic Republic of China, being the successor to the People's Republic of China, and the European Federation, being the successor to The French Republic. Looking to fully form the UNSC5 again, we would propose the nations of Brazil and India to succeed to the council, as they are both crucial for Latin American and Indo-Pacific security and military respectively. [United States, European Federation, Brazilian and MOD Response)
      • European Federation Response: We would accept this offer. Brazil and India are the superpowers of their regions, and it will be perfect to ensure the stability of the world.
      • Brazil Response: Huehuehue, yes.
    • Selling Liaoning: The Defense Minister of the Democratic Republic of China announces the sale of China's first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning. We are selling this aircraft carrier to any nation who wishes to bolster their navy, though we will be stripping the carrier of all important defense technologies which are currently confidential. Luckily, our defense technologies are very rapidly continuing to advance, so it is likely most technologies and equipment on board can be kept. The purpose of the sale from our perspective is due to the limited usage we have for this Type 001 carrier, considering we have 25 more that surpass the carrier in every way. The price for the carrier is 50 million dollars, due to an aging engine system and the relative age of the carrier. If a sale cannot be procured, we will have to destroy or preserve the craft. [Player Response]
    • Use of Beidou and CGNSS: Internationally, certain countries have not been keen to wield their access to navigation systems such as GPS, BeiDou, CGNSS (former GLONASS) and Galileo systems in a responsible manner, mainly instances of withholding access to certain enemy nations to deny nations the opportunity for intelligence on the enemy. We stand by a policy of information freedom, however any country who wishes to use navigation data for a possible counterintel operation will have to request permission from our Office of Information Security, this goes for the BeiDou 4 and CGNSS navigation systems. We have private companies as well with international navigation systems, the prominent ones being STARNAV and the OATNI Program. STARNAV is widely used by the private industry in China to find navigational solutions, while OATNI is more open source, called the Open Access To Navigation Information Program. These can be used with the companies discretion.

      • To further expand the European Federation, we now officially invite Ukraine and the Baltic States to join our Federation. [MOD RESPONSE]
        • Mod Response: Ukraine and the Baltic States decline, wishing to choose their own path of governance. Both Ukraine and the Baltic States are open to doing business with Europe however.
    • International Affairs: State your reaction or stance on what happens in other nations.***
      • We contact Navalny's new Russian government, and supports them in efforts to unify Russia.

        • Chinese Response: We accept this agreement and would ask if there are any defense needs we can provide too. All we wish for in return is an alliance.

Italyflag.png Italian Republic

  • Government: Unitary Parliamentary Republic
  • Ideology: N/A
  • President: Matteo Lorenzo
  • Prime Minister: Martina Sambucini
  • Ruling Party: Future Forward

  • Capital City: Rome
  • Population: 58,497,973
  • Economy: Italy is a highly developed market economy, with a competitive primary sector and a developed secondary sector with manufacture of machinery, vehicles, pharmaceuticals, furniture, food and clothing. There is also a large booming tourism and banking industry, as well as being one of the greatest exporters of luxury goods. Unemployment and the black economy are slowly decreasing, and people live relatively happy lives.
  • Internal Affairs:
    • Declining Population: The birth rate of Italy dropped to a record low at 1.12 births per woman, which caused concern over Italy’s future with a shrinking population as a small younger population struggle to support a larger older one. To help combat this issue, prime minister Sambucini and her party proposed several childcare reforms to improve childcare facilities and increasing job opportunities to reduce emigration.
    • Driverless Roads: After FIAT and Lancia released their new all-electric driverless cars, the Ministry for Infrastructure and Transport publishes a review for the suitability of Italian roads for driverless cars. The review suggests further action is needed to support driverless cars on Italian roads.
    • Employment and Income Act: As part of reducing unemployment, the Minister of Economic Development announced the end of the ‘citizen’s income’ due to its ineffectiveness and replacing it with the National Income, a universal income which is fairer for all.
    • Sicily Earthquakes: Sicily is struck by several earthquakes, causing 28 deaths and multiple buildings destroyed or damaged. Prime Minister Sambucini visited the areas affected by the earthquake, having previously worked in Sicily before and promised further work on earthquake-proofing buildings. Although their was a speedy emergency response with first responders immediately working to clear debris and rescue people, other politicians criticised the late response by the government for not previously earthquake-proofing Sicily’s buildings.
    • Space Exploration: After the successful launch of Italian astronauts to the moon thanks to China and the delivery of the first Sino-Italian reusable rocket, the Italia, we build another copy to handle more launches. We hope to be able to land astronauts on the moon by 2035 and start expeditions to Mars and asteroid mining by 2042.
    • Energy: Research begins into hydrogen fuel cells and nuclear fusion.
  • Wars and Conflicts:
    • Military: A 3rd aircraft carrier, the Mazzini, begins construction. The new aircraft carrier will be the first CATOBAR nuclear powered aircraft carrier in the Italian Navy as new aircraft are being designed to be able to be used on the aircraft carrier, including attack aircraft, UAVs and AWACs. The A-14 Sirocco attack aircraft is introduced as a replacement for the aging A-11 Ghibli and is able to be launched from new aircraft carrier.
    • Boko Haram War: We deploy the carrier Trieste and her strike group, alongside 960 desert warfare and counter-insurgency specialists equipped with light armoured vehicles and a contingent of 25 strike and reconnaissance drones. We also deploy a team of trainers to train the Nigerian Army.
  • International Affairs:
    • European Defence Force: Following the success of the first admissions, we invite Israel, Austria, Ukraine, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Serbia, North Macedonia, Malta, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to our alliance. [Mod Response]
      • Mod Response: All nations accept.
    • Russia: We express our support for Navalny’s Republic of Russia and offer to send supplies. We also begin the evacuation of Italian citizens from the former Russian Federation.
    • United States of Anglosphere: We wish to cooperate in the defeat of Boko Haram in Nigeria and would support the submission of USA as an observer member. We would also wish to sign a trade deal with the USA to allow more trade between the two countries. While we ourselves may be suspicious of the goals of the USA, we still must treat them as a country which has not done any wrong. [Player Response]
      • USA Response: The US thanks Italy for supporting the US application to be an observer of the EDF and gladly signs a trade deal with Italy.

Turn III - 2034

With the increasing militarization and disorder in the world, chaos seems to be approaching inch by inch. Russia has been split into three main spheres of influence, with the European Federation heavily influencing the West, though not controlling it, the Chinese controlling Central and Eastern Russia, and the United States of the Anglosphere controlling parts of the far East and Northeast. Pakistan and India continue their now 5 year war within the Kashmir region, eventually agreeing on a landmark deal, in which China steps in and buys the territory for 150 billion dollars, ending the war and allowing peace to reign free. Within the USA, talk of various reform is likely to be had, with the various coalitions in a gridlock on what to do. China has effectively blitzed Mongolia and Central Asia as well, losing over one million Chinese Troops, though inflicting 4 million losses on the enemy. The world is seeing conflict and peace, as usual. Will things take a turn for the worse, is a question that needs to be answered.

ChinaFlag.jpg- Democratic Union of China

  • Government: The Government of the Democratic Union of China is a Multi-Party Democratic Union, which consists of the Democratic Parliament, the highest authority on legislation within China. The DUC is currently divided into five main parties, The New Communist Party, The Progressive Party, The Moderate Party, The China First Party, and the People's Party. Dozens of smaller parties have seen various levels of success within their elections.
    • President: Cai Rizal
    • Legislature: Democratic Parliament
      • Ruling Party: The People's Party
  • Ideology: Capitalist Democracy
  • Capital: Beijing
    • Major Cities: Chongqing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Pyongyang, Almaty, Vladivostok, Ulaanbaatar, etc.
  • Population: 1.640 Billion People
  • Economy: Our economy is currently the largest of all nations on the planet, with our GDP in both nominal and PPP terms eclipsing all others. We are growing quickly due to our partially AI planned economy.
    • GDP PPP: 57.9 Trillion USD
    • HDI: 0.913
  • War and Conflict:
    • Military Expansion: Due to our recent takeover of military and defensive assets across Central Asia and Mongolia, we possess dozens of different types of missiles, rockets, artillery, ammunition, resources and more. We also have a good increase in manpower, due to the vast amount of surrendered troops, which numbers well over one million. Our military is now at nearly 15 million troops in total, from both private contracts and government mandated military service. This is well within what we consider a good amount, though we will likely have millions more if we must. Military bases are constructed across Central Asia and Mongolia, allowing our military to flourish further.
    • Aircraft Carriers: Well, we order and induct four new carriers, all being Sea Dragon-002's. With 270,000 tons of displacement, and costing 10 billion dollars each, these four carriers are true behemoths of the sea. Able to carry 25,500 crew and 200 vehicles on board and being nearly unsinkable, due to the shear size of the craft, this will likely be the primary carrier design we procure for the next decade at the very least. The aircraft carrier seems to be something that will have the ability to last at least 50 years as well, based on what Rizal Industries speculates.
    • Nuclear Weapons: As a result of the four new Democratic Republics, we gain 800 more nuclear weapons, although most of them are outdated in design. Among the arsenals of Iran and Pakistan, Iran had 5 and Pakistan 30 nuclear weapons that have the ability to be mounted to a hypersonic missile, showing fully their capabilities of war and why the unification of these states into the Democratic Union was necessary. We also begin a nuclear sharing program, transporting dozens of long range nuclear missiles to various built locations in Afghanistan and Iraq. While we believe some may view this as a provocative act, we must maintain the sovereign nature of our homeland. Our nuclear count is now sitting comfortable at 8400 nuclear weapons, most of these being from the Russian arsenal.
    • Taiwan: The time has come to reunify our nations together. We know this will earn us various hate and sanctions from the world, but the purpose of our existence is not to satisfy others, it is to do what is best for all who live under the Democratic Union. The Democratic Council, similar to the former EU Parliament, has decided to approve a document stating the following, "Taiwan is an integral part of China, both historically and at present time. As it has become China's clear intention to make peace, Taiwan rejects these offers at any cost. The time has come for a show of force, a war of the same people so to speak. Taiwan will surrender, using either the ink of a diplomatic pen, or the blood of their own veins." The vote, which includes all Democratic Republics, was unanimous in favor of a Taiwan invasion. President Rizal, shortly after the document is signed, orders the military forces of the Democratic Republic of China only to invade via air, land and sea. Our new missile defense system from ATLAS, called the Tanta Missile Defense, is placed in droves of hundreds of thousands around major Chinese cities. Bases in the Oceanic and Pacific Islands region are put on high alert, and ordered to shoot down any potential military craft coming in the direction of Taiwan.
    • Former Soviet States: The former Soviet States of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia are of high interest to us, due to their relative location near Europe and their status as former states of Russia's once great Soviet Union. Because of this, we launch a military campaign designed to take the countries by force, though we will make sure to spare all civilian lives as we can. This will give us a crucial path into Turkey as well, which we now recognize as an enemy of our nation. We have reasonable evidence to suggest they are in the process of developing nuclear weapons as well, due to their animosity with Iran and Saudi Arabia, both of which possess the same types of weaponry. We will not allow the Erdogan Government to oppress those who wish to live freely in the Middle East and Europe, even if we have to assassinate him or take his country by force. May peace be upon the Turkish people for what comes for them next year.
    • Nanodrones: Nanodrones, from Al Hajar Defense Corp, will allow us to deploy, for military and civil purposes, full scale malleable nanotechnology once and for all. While other companies have developed and deployed systems similar to this within the Democratic Union, this is the first created after the formation of the Union. The Democratic Naval Forces will use this for emergency repairs of vessels, the Democratic Army Forces will use this for operations involved in protection of vehicles and in place of body armor if needed, and many other uses.
    • Democratic Armed Forces: The Democratic Armed Forces is the largest armed forces in the world. Official numbers for the year 2034 show the possibility of 45 million government funded troops, with private mercenaries and other groups independent of the government reaching near 50 million. These numbers combine the active and reserve troops, but largely consist of The DRC's military assets. The Democratic Armed Forces receives 2.3 percent of the combined GDP at nearly 1.3 Trillion USD. This allows the funding of many weapons, troops, and other assets for defense purposes.
    • Clarifying our numbers: As some have questioned the proportion of active duty troops to non-active and reserves, we will clarify. The amount of active duty troops are about 15 million across the Democratic Republic, while our reserves who can be called up to serve are at around 85-90 million, depending on estimates. This includes both private militia and mercenary groups as well as governmental funded soldiers.
    • Sino-Korean Invasion: President Rizal of the Democratic Republic of China, after attempting to get a vote passed to invade South Korea unsuccessfully, has resorted to the help of the DRK (formerly North Korea) to invade the ROK. A joint invasion is immediately commenced, with South Korea likely to, even with their military prowess, fall by the end of the year. Taiwan, as the world clearly looks on, is also struggling, likely to fall before the halfway point in the year. Time will tell, but it seems China is still set on taking their own warmongering path to a world where they rule, along with their Democratic Republic.
    • ATLAS and Rizal Defense: The teams at both ATLAS and Rizal Defense Industries have announced the building of a military space complex, allowing for use by all members of the Democratic Union Space Force. With this in mind, construction will begin immediately, owing to the fact 31 members of the 34 agreed to assist construction in some way, the station will be launched this year. Likely the size of the ISS, the expansion process will be crucial to determining how many members can board the station. Companies such as Tehran Defense Co and RED Armed Solutions are taking place in the development too, allowing for both Iranian and Sakhan space companies to join. Nearly a half dozen smaller stations are also constructed and launched, however these are for use by the Democratic Security Council heads.
    • Project Zeus, Stage 2: [SECRET] Stage 2 of Project Zeus is complete and launched, consisting of 40 more orbital laser satellites. These should allow the Democratic Union to have the capability to strike anywhere in the world now, with dozens more satellites ready to be constructed and launched this year and next. Our ability to have space defenses is paramount to our objectives of maintaining peace. We suspect only the European Federation, India and the USA have the capability to construct and launch such a system, apart from a few of our member nations such as the Democratic Republic of China or the Democratic Republic of Sahka. [SECRET]
    • Sino-Japanese Invasion: In a direct challenge to the authority and word of the United States, The Democratic Republic of China launches a full fledged invasion into Japan, using the DRK as a launch vehicle to refuel, support troops, and more. While the Democratic Republic of Korea is not directly fighting the war, The Democratic Republic of Sakha, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and Magadan agree to send what resources they have to help. With Sakha's assistance, the war, already likely in favor of China, will likely become a massacre. Orders are given to kill civilians and military both, which only China goes through with. The Democratic Republic of Sakha will send their first carrier, co developed with China, called the Red Lion, with displacement of 65,000 tons, towards Japan, in an effort to bomb them.
  • Domestic Affairs:
    • Treaties and Administration: After our all out blitz into Central Asia and Mongolia, we forced these various countries to either surrender or basically die by the sword in a sense, demoralizing our enemy. As a result, new states have been formed, which are the Democratic Republic of Sakha, The Democratic Republic of Magadan, The Democratic Republic of Buryatia, The Democratic Republic of Krasnoyark, The Democratic Republic of Tomsk, The Democratic Republic of Mongolia, The Democratic Republic of West Kazakhstan, The Democratic Republic of East Kazakhstan, The Democratic Republic of Uzbekistan, The Democratic Republic of Tajikistan, The Democratic Republic of Kyrgyzstan, The Democratic Republic of Turkmenistan, The Democratic Republic of China, The Democratic Republic of Kashmir and the Democratic Republic of Korea. Each country can function mostly independently, however all actions must go through the central government before approval. Many are comparing this to the Soviet Union, except less communist and authoritarian.
    • New Constitution: A new constitution is agreed upon, setting the rights of various Republics into action. Under the new constitution, which is signed by all member republics [SECRET] Under a bit of coercion and deals [SECRET] Republics are allowed to set their own laws within relative compliance to the Central Government (which is almost no regulation whatsoever) allowed to protest, allowed freedom of religion and all other relative freedoms, and more. The only parts which are prohibited are for states to secede in any form or declare themselves independent of the Democratic Union. In exchange for this however, the states are now granted full protection by the Democratic Armed Forces, all citizens given standard universal healthcare, given a minimum wage, etc.
    • More Republics: The Democratic Republic of Iraq, The Democratic Republic of Afghanistan, The Democratic Republic of Iran and The Democratic Republic of Pakistan have all become members of the Democratic Union. These come as the result of various lucrative and incentivizing trade deals, defense pacts, military drills/training, political stability guarantees, and more were provided. Though this is certainly going to set us back in terms of our economic growth, the full effect of these new countries being admitted into the Union is remarkable. Along with a population and GDP increase to the Union as a whole, these countries will bring much needed land and resources, so that the Union may maintain our mission for a prosperous nation.
    • Democratic Council: The Democratic Council, which supersedes all member nations on jurisdiction and law, is officially set. While votes did take place before, these were mostly at the request of China, without being a proper democratic vote, often under pressure. The Democratic Council will function as a tricameral body, with the Lower, Middle, and Upper Chambers being used to decide different issues. If the issue is minor. such as a budget increase for an infrastructure project, the Lower Chamber will handle the issue. If the issue is something such as a nation threatening the sovereignty of Pakistan, for example, the Middle Chamber will handle the issue. If the issue proceeds to threaten the entire Democratic Union itself, the Upper Chamber will handle it. There are various Offices within the Chambers, such as the Upper Chamber's Office of Foreign Affairs or the Lower Chamber's Office of Infrastructure Budget Allocation.
    • Name Changes: The Democratic Union of China is now simply The Democratic Union, as a vote of 17-2, with all but China and the Sakhans voting against the resolution. This is the first controversial vote within the Union between the Chinese and the rest of the Union. While many expect China to retaliate, the unthinkable happens. China accepts the vote, with President Rizal of the Democratic Republic of China saying "While we are not happy with the name change, as the Council has agreed, the name will be changed. This is a necessary move to handle the issue peacefully, as we are part of a larger cause now. The cause of democratic and prosperous Union politics will live on."
    • Vote on Caucasus Region: As is required now, The Democratic Republic of China submitted their request to allow a military campaign against the states of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. With much debate in the Democratic Council, the Vote is 14-5, with Five Republics voting for the military operation, and fourteen voting against. The DRC, as is their right, requests to be heard in front of the specialized Democratic Council on War and Defense. The Democratic Council on War and Defense, to no ones surprise, agrees with the vote of the Council. The DRC requests a public written statement to be released internationally on the reason as to the invasion being denied, which is granted. A case is also pending in the Democratic Supreme Court, which will likely be upheld against China.
    • Union Dollar: All 19 member nations agree on the creation of a single universal currency, called the Union Dollar. Pegged to the Yuan, which allows the Union Dollar to be traded with many other nations as a reserve currency, gives the 19 member nations the ability to fully trade within their borders on a set amount of fiat currency. The Union Dollar does not replace the currencies of any member nations, however it will become an important asset to the intra-union trade that will take place, likely within the amount of trillions of dollars in trade per year. After the Union Dollar, the Yuan and the Dinar are the most traded currencies. In practice, the Union Dollar will likely be used only for intra-union trade, with the Yuan still growing to challenge the spot of the Anglo Dollar.
    • Democratic Security Council: The Democratic Security Council is a body of six nations, all of which are integral to the defense and military of the Union itself. The members are as follows, The Democratic Republic of China, The Democratic Republic of Iran, The Democratic Republic of Saudi Arabia, The Democratic Republic of Pakistan, The Democratic Republic of Korea and The Democratic Republic of Sakha. These six nations contribute the most to military and defense spending and resources within the Democratic Union, which gives them limited rights to veto certain security proposals, draft invasion plans for cross border marches, summon all military and security officials, and more.
    • New Democratic Republics: The Democratic Republics of Saudi Arabia, Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Papua New Guinea are officially introduced and accepted into the Union. The Union now consists of 34 member states, making it similar now in numbers to the EU was. More invitations are likely to go out, seeing as the rate of invitation to join was a massive success.
    • Sakhan Ectogenesis: The Democratic Republic of Sakha is quickly transforming itself into a powerhouse, largely based on the acceptance of human ectogenesis pods in the region. Millions of ectogenesis children are being born in the region, and major cities are becoming a more common sight in the DRS, aided by hundreds of billions in development assistance from the Democratic Union's Office of Infrastructure. This has a positive effect on GDP, where the Democratic Union's combined GDP is expected to skyrocket 20 percent, based on new estimates. With the military and economic growth, only the United States and the European Federation have a chance of standing in the way.
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • Money is Power: Four agreements are signed with the governments of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran, formally admitting, under fully voluntary conditions, these nations to the Democratic Union. The Foreign Minister of China has stated the deals are mutually beneficial and that China shall allow the governments to continue business as usual under these agreements. Details on each of these agreements have been released to the public, mostly involving donations, infrastructure projects, forgiveness of debt, pledges to defend, and more.
    • Karachi Accords: The first deal is with the government of Pakistan. Due to the relative hostility Pakistan has faced, and China's past commitment to neutrality between the two (mostly), Pakistan has not had a solid partner to back their defense capabilities up. While they are a nuclear nation, their military and defense capabilities are poor compared to India's more advanced systems, allowing for India to likely have an upper hand should war occur. The Chinese Foreign Ministry has negotiated a deal which includes a guarantee of defense in any conflicts, 250 billion dollars to government funded projects, guaranteed healthcare for all Pakistani citizens, and more. China gains the ability to utilize any resources within Pakistan, though an agreement between the PM of Pakistan and President of China must be signed. China can veto, though in practice this will likely not happen.
    • Kabul Pact: The second deal is with the government of Afghanistan. Given the ambitions of Afghanistan to further stabilize their government and allow for the procurement of defense systems to their military, options were limited, as many countries have sanctioned and blockaded Afghanistan in the past. China gives a promise of defense assistance and defense in case of conflict, a delegation to stabilize the government, 250 billion dollars in government investment and infrastructure, and a mixed use land development the size of a small country, near Kashmir. Additionally, Afghanistan gains the ability to invest in Chinese infrastructure and development with no trade barriers.
    • Iraqi Accords: [SECRET] Given the tense nature of the situation between Turkey and Iraq, due to Turkish Occupation of Lebanon and Syria, we have agreed to assist the Iraqi military in their quest to liberate both nations. This benefits both China and Iraq, as it helps us expand our territory further but also helps Iraq feel a sense of security within their own borders. [SECRET] Iraq is getting the same agreement as Afghanistan basically, with some extra defensive help.
    • Iran Deal: Iran has the best deal of all nations so far. We are investing 400 billion in their economy, incentivizing Chinese companies to work well with their government, providing them the equipment to land an Iranian in space, as well as co developing various science and technology within their borders. In exchange for this, the Iranians have allowed us to confirm their storage of nuclear weapons, of which they possess 150. They have also allowed us to assist them in defensive affairs as well, hopefully spurring further military cooperation within the Democratic Union.
    • Invasion of Taiwan: Taiwan is being invaded by China, it is official. President Rizal asks all nations of the world who aren't allied with China in some way to not insert themselves into the issue. In a speech, he says "The Chinese people will never interfere with American or European affairs, we expect the same in return. Do not interfere with this war, for once you do, the wrath of 20 million soldiers will be dropped upon you. We will put down any enemies who wish to interfere, and our wishes will be heard, whether the world lends an ear to them or not. Regardless of the outcome of any Congress, Parliament, Palace, Kingdom, Nation, or State on this issue, the result will be the same, China will take our province back from the rebels. Victory to the Chinese people!" [Player Responses]
    • Recognition of Russia: We partially denounce President Robredo's statement on the Russian issue, claiming our nation is not imperialist in any form by simply providing stability to our new Democratic Union Members. As a reference, we point to the achievement of peace within the regions we now control or that are under our union, contrary to the Western Russian region where fighting still persists as well as disputes. We also believe the United States to not be imperialist either in this manner, as they are simply taking steps to stabilize a region near their state of Alaska, which we view as a justified use of military resources. The Sino-Anglosphere buffer state of the Far East is officially recognized by our government as well, but as for what Russia is for the future, we recognize Navalny's democratic state as the successor and true heir to Russia. We state we fully support Navalny in his ambitions to restore peace to Russia, however we are also weary that other Russian states exist, not including our Union's states.
    • BRICS Space Council: Under our authority within BRICS, which now contains the likes of a dozen member states who are developing/developed economies, a new reformed BRICS Space Council is created, along with a BRICS Space Fund. We use our power within the new Space Fund to offer the Philippines and it's partners in their SASEL the opportunity to allow the Democratic Union to assist in developing a satellite, likely meaning the Philippines and SASEL could achieve launch this year. We would also propose a small joint SASEL-DSA(Democratic Space Agency) mission to the moon if possible. [Philippines Response]
      • Philippine Response: As founder and head of SASEL, we accept the Chinese proposition of joint operations with the Democratic Space Agency to the lunar moon.
    • Clarifying the Union's Purpose: The Democratic Union's purpose, at it's very core, is to promote democracy and the values of freedom and prosperity across the world. The four new signings within the Democratic Union, The Democratic Republic of Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, do not force the nations to relinquish their sovereignty, nor do they force these nations to bow to China. The Democratic Union simply provides assistance to these nations in return for an agreement to provide assistance. Basically, a mutual assistance pact that allows us to mutually use resources off each other, with approval of course. The Union, although providing these perks, does require assistance to maintain it's status. Within the first three months of these signings, these four democratic republics have all seen a GDP increase of 30 percent, have seen their militaries expand in size by 20 percent, have seen improved life expectancy and standard income.
    • Responding to Italy: While Italy's comments have earned the ire of many citizens within the Democratic Union, the Democratic Union's Office of Foreign Affairs releases a statement. "While we condemn the Italian remarks on the member state of China, we also understand their points as they have presented them. As China has stated, the reason of the invasion of Taiwan as we understand is the reuniting of the sovereign nations together once again. The Democratic Council has voted, however, 19-0, to allow China to proceed with the invasion with the full backing and military support of all nations involved. With this in mind, we must not intervene in the conflict, however we can, if Italy wishes, hold diplomatic negotiations on terms of war before the invasion progresses beyond a point of no return."
    • Statement on actions in Caucasus: As the Democratic Republic of China has requested a public statement to be released as to why their request of invasion of the Caucasus region was denied, the statement is released through the Democratic Union's Office of International Defense and War, stating "On behalf of the DRC, we are releasing this statement as to why the request to invade the Caucasus region was denied. For obvious reasons, the invasion, if approved and allowed to proceed, would threaten the regional and structural peace of Europe as a whole. They would likely view the move as expansionist in nature, which we do not intend to be viewed as nor confirm those suspicions. The Democratic Union stands by the decision in regards to Taiwan, however we cannot fathom a reason the Democratic Republic of China would need to invade the Caucasus region. We deeply apologize to the Caucasus region and Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia in particular. In terms of Italy and Europe as a whole, we apologize for any worry we may have caused as well."
    • Invitations: We officially invite Saudi Arabia, Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, India, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea to join the Democratic Union. These countries, if they join, will still be fully independent and independent in governmental matters as a whole, only admitted to the Union in a similar capacity of China or Iraq, where if voted upon, assistance in various forms will be provided. [Mod Response]
      • Result: All except India and Indonesia accepts this offer.
    • More Invitations: As expected after the massive success, more invitations are sent out. This time, a focus is made on African and Latin American nations. The nations of Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Guyana, Suriname, Cuba, Haiti, The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Bahamas, Barbados, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, Laos, The Solomon Islands, Malaysia, Oman, Yemen and Egypt. While we expect many countries to decline, we nevertheless believe in trying. [Mod Response]
      • Result: This time, most countries decline due to skepticism, though South Africa, Egypt and Laos accept.
    • Response to USA: The Democratic Republic of China responds to the United States, in a language the world understands, one of hostility. President Rizal makes a statement, claiming "As the United States has refused to attempt to use diplomatic solutions when discussing Taiwan, we will make a statement of our own. If the United States continues to attempt to provoke us, or makes any statements to damage the reputation of our great nation, we will, in full force, directly take and annex Puerto Rico and Guam. Since this seems to be the only language the Anglos understand, the language of war, we will be sending our carrier strike groups of our Type-002 and Type-003 carriers, so two strike groups, to each Guam and Puerto Rico to conduct operational safety drills. We will not shore up on those islands, however we will conduct safety operations to ensure our combat capabilities are up to par."
    • Statement on Neutrality: The Democratic Union's Triumvirate, the highest executive figures in the Union and the highest body on all matters within the Union under executive authority, releases a statement on the recent events within the Union, and the various member states declaring war. Samir Ali Khan, one third of the Triumvirate, states the current conflicts that are going on are the Turkish Independence Wars, The Sino-Korean and Sino-Taiwanese invasions. The Turkish Independence Wars are fought by Iraq, Iran, Sakha, East Kazakhstan and China, to liberate the Turkish people and the peoples of Syria and Lebanon. The Sino-Korean Invasion is the invasion of South Korea, supported and fought by Korea and China against South Korea and it's government. The Sino-Taiwanese invasion is fought by and supported by 17 member states of the Union against Taiwan. Khan states the Democratic Union, other than these conflicts, will attempt to remain largely neutral.

    • President: Peter Kipling (RTC)
    • Vice President: Nicki Haley (RTC)
    • Congress of the Anglosphere:
      • Political Parties: Republican Party, Liberal Party, National Coalition, Social Labour Party, CANZUK Party, Democratic Party, Tory Party
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Capital City: Washington, DC.
    • Major Cities: London, New York, Toronto, Montréal, Melbourne, Sydney, Los Angeles, Birmingham
    • Population: 523 million
  • Home Affairs:
    • Congressional Elections: Congressional mid-term elections result in no majority for any party or coalition. However, pro-autonomy parties now hold a majority in the Congress. As a result, many now believe that the Anglosphere will be politically reorganised within the next 4 years. The Republican-Tory Coalition collapses following the near total defeat of the Tory party by the National Coalition. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party has been significantly outcompeted by the Liberal Party and the Social Labour Party.
    • Nuclear Fusion: A working nuclear fusion reactor is developed in the United States. It is expected that optimised fusion reactors for use in the power grid will be developed within the next 5 years.
  • Space Affairs:
    • Asteroid Mining:
    • Artemis Programme:
    • Prometheus Station:
    • Pegasus Station: The first era of development of the Pegasus Station is complete. In line with NASA's Interplanetary Exploration Programme (IEP), a collaborative effort between NASA and Frontier Industries (a SpaceX competitor) begins construction of the Venus III interplanetary rocket system, which will allow orbit-to-orbit travel between the inner planets of Earth at a fraction of the cost of surface-to-surface interplanetary travel.
    • Ceres Station:
    • Independence Station:
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • EDF: America continues its application for observer status in the European Defence Force. [Mod Response]
      • EF (under the Czaja Administration): F--- no! You are going to imperialize us and turn us into English-speaking countries! We are sepearate, America, don't try and do anything to us!
      • EF (under the Neuer Administration): Look, Americ- I mean Anglosphere, we would like to apologize our previous administration's hatred to the United States, we would gladly allow you in, but you are not allowed to station any forces in Europe. We would like to repair our countries' relations.
    • Far Eastern Republic: Following the success of Operation Arctic Fox, the United States finds itself in control of large portions of the Russian Far East, including Kamchatka Krai, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, Magadan Oblast, Sakha Republic, Khabarovsk Krai, and Sakhalin Oblast. These territories are reorganised into a newly formed independent country, the Far Eastern Republic. The Far Eastern Republic consists of 7 semi-autonomous oblasts and 1 federal district. These are Kamchatka Oblast, Chukotka Oblast, Magadan Oblast, Sakha Oblast, Sakhalin Oblast, Ayansky Oblast, Komsomolsk Oblast, and Khabarovka Federal District (capital city). The new republic's constitution guarantees its citizens much the same rights as those of a United States' citizen, having been drafted in consultation with US advisors. The US military will maintain a presence in the FER until it is able to form a strong military of its own for its national defence. A treaty of cooperation with the United States is proposed. The Far Eastern Republic will receive an annual allotment of financial aid, military support, and foreign investment from the Anglosphere. [Mod Response on Treaty of Cooperation]
      • Mod Response: The Far Eastern Republic accepts the treaty, citing a wish for cooperation with major world powers and the United States in particular.
    • Taiwan: Following China's unprecedented invasion of Taiwan, a democratic nation that the USA has specifically promised to protect, the USA cuts off all except the highest level diplomatic contact with China. The public of the Anglosphere is in uproar, with protests breaking out all across the country and a massive spike in attacks on Chinese-owned businesses. The President makes a speech denouncing China's blatant disregard for the independence, alliances, and peaceful development of other nations. Taiwan is yet another step in China's continuous expansion by military force. China is warned not to encroach further into the Pacific, Indian Ocean, Africa or, most of all, Europe and the Americas, or the USA will be forced to act accordingly. Trade with China is further reduced, now accounting for less than 5% of total trade, thanks to decades of dedicated efforts to shift trade away from China and towards India, ASEAN and Africa.
    • South Korea: Following the Chinese invasion of South Korea, the United States simply notes that if one Chinese soldier touches Japanese soil, or if one Chinese warship enters Japanese waters, a state of war will exist between our two nations. To back up this deterrent, the newly formed 3rd Pacific Fleet is deployed to US Naval Base Yokosuka (United States Fleet Activities Yokosuka) along with 30,000 US Marines deployed across US bases in Japan.
    • Philippines-Indonesia: The Philippines is warned that if they invade Indonesia or Malaysia, the United States will extend support to the invaded countries, including but not limited to intelligence, equipment and weapons systems, and if the situation escalates enough, direct military action. [Player Response]
    • Philippine Response: The Philippine government stands down and will not invade Indonesia after threats from the west but its forces in the south are still out on high alert.
    • Indo-Pacific Security Organisation: The United States invites India, Indonesia, all the nations of ASEAN, the Middle East and Central Asia not part of the Democratic Union, all nations of the Americas, the Far Eastern Republic, Japan, all Pacific island nations, and all nations of East Africa to join a new security organisation called the Indo-Pacific Security Organisation (IPSO) whose single and straightforward goal is the mutual defence of each other in the case that a member state is attacked unprovoked by a non-member state. No further requirements of membership exist, though it is expected that there will be increased cooperation between member nations on security affairs, particularly through the Indo-Pacific Security Council (IPSC), the governing council of the organisation to which all members may send one representative. [Mod/Player Responses]
  • Defence Affairs:
    • Response to Taiwan Invasion: Following the Chinese invasion of Taiwan, a third enlarged carrier group (the Indo-Pacific Fleet) is deployed to Darwin, Australia, joining the Indian Ocean Fleet and the First Pacific Fleet in Perth and Brisbane respectively. The Second Pacific Fleet, stationed in Hawaii, is enlarged with the addition of two more nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. Additionally, shipyards in Adelaide and Sydney ramp up construction of new destroyers and nuclear submarines, expanding the size of the Navy's surface and submarine fleets.
    • Response to Invasion of South Korea: Following yet another act of aggression from China by its unprovoked invasion of South Korea, the United States Armed Forces is put on DEFCON 3. Due to the rapid rise in tensions with China, and public uproar at China's blatantly warmongering actions which have now become widely associated with those of Nazi Germany and the Japanese Empire in particular, applications to join the armed forces have skyrocketed, with recruiters becoming so inundated that they have had to deploy wartime tests and qualifications (including IQ tests and immediate disqualification for subpar fitness) to stem the rise in the armed force's growth. By the end of the year, the armed forces consists of close to 3 million personnel, concentrated in the Marines and rapidly expanding Navy, which now includes 25 aircraft carriers 98 nuclear powered submarines (of which 28 are ballistic missile submarines). Close to 250,000 Marines and 350,000 soldiers are deployed to Australia and New Zealand with their requisite equipment and fighting vehicles. They are joined by a 1,600 aircraft of the USAF and their requisite pilots and support personnel.
    • Defence Budget: The defence budget is raised to 4.5% of GDP, from the previous year's 4%. This brings defence spending to $1.7 trillion USD. Though the Anglosphere's 2 million troops are vastly outnumbered by those of the Democratic Union, the slightly higher defence budget allows for a much higher spending-per-soldier ratio, allowing the US military to be significantly better trained, better equipped, and better armed. Unsparingly, the Navy, Air Force and Space Force rely on technological superiority instead of raw numbers.
    • Space Force:
      • Nike Station: [Secret] The Space Force completes construction of Nike Station, the world's first dedicated military space station in orbit of Earth. It will have the capability to build and deploy a variety of spacecraft, but for the time being will only produce intra-orbital defence/boarding craft and Earth-Moon transport craft. The USSF targets the production of at least 10 orbital boarding craft by February next year. These craft are essentially large tanks in space, whose role is to safely transport troops to enemy installations for boarding purposes. [/Secret]
      • Project Ultor: [Secret] The Space Force launches Project Ultor, which involves the clandestine deployment of hundreds (250 by December) of the newly designed Ultior II Missile (an orbit-to-orbit stealth missile) into orbit. Their size and payload are nowhere near that of an ICBM, because their purpose is similar to that of an anti-ship missile and their design emphasises speed and stealth. [/Secret]
      • Fort Diana: [Secret] In collaboration with the US Marines and a covert department of NASA, the Space Force constructs a joint-service base camp on the Moon, called Fort Diana. The fort is currently in its infancy, and only houses 145 personnel, half of whom are engineers and communications crew. However, the USSF and USMC plan on expanding the base underground over the coming years to become a largely self-sustaining base for at least a one thousand Marines and Space Force guardians. [/Secret]
    • Defence Technologies:
      • Missile Defence Systems: The latest of the nation's missile defence systems, MINERVA, is deployed all across the nation, with particular focus on Australia, Hawaii, and the West Coast of North America.
      • Nuclear Weapons: For the first time in decades, the United States begins constructing new nuclear warheads and a new generation of ICBMs. Tests and developments are conducted in Australia and America, with plans to increase the size of the nuclear arsenal by an additional 100 warheads every year, for the next 5 years. These should serve as a deterrent to hostile nations encroaching on US territory and US allies.
      • Drones: [Secret] Development of AI drone swarms reaches a critical point, with tests in the New Mexico desert involving thousands of drones proving successful. Deployment of tens of thousands of low cost drones in swarm formations is expected to occur within the next year. These swarms operate on the principle of overwhelming numbers, such that any ship or fleet may be unable to defend against thousands of suicide drones simultaneously. [/Secret]
      • Orbital Bombardment: [Secret] Following the declaration of DEFCON 3, the Space Force completes its first orbital bombardment platform by June, far ahead of schedule, and follows it up with 15 more platforms by the end of the year. Following the sudden escalation of tensions with China and the Democratic Union, the Space Force plans to complete the construction of 50 more orbital bombardment platforms by the end of next year. [/Secret]

The Republic of The Philippines

  • Wars/Conflicts: One of our esteemed generals with the support of an influential politician has convinced the Robredo Administration to instead allow Filipino special forces units supported by military troops of Papa New Guinea. Operation Downfall replaces Operation Hammer Down as the military operation to annihilate NPA forces. Operation Downfall will involve joint Filipino-Papa New Guinea special forces equipped with heavy weapons and military equipment tracking the NPA leadership and capturing them whether dead or alive.
  • Government: Unitary Presidential Republic
    • Ruler: President Leni Robredo.
  • Ideology: Capitalist Democracy
  • Capital City: Manila
  • Population: 185.6 Million (A sharp increase of population growth throughout the year 2034)
  • Economy: Relatively Stable
  • GDP (PPP): 365. 7 Billion
  • Number of Military Forces (Active and non-Active): 7 Million

Internal Affairs:

  • Military: [SECRET]The National Philippine Intelligence Agency (NPIA) is formed under Fernando Ronaldo to cooperate or work under the Philippine Armed Forces with the goal of secretly spying on other countries particularly neighbors around the country and in times of war, sabotage and assassinations. [SECRET] The military also receives thousands of new equipment and weaponry while also producing hundreds from military factories. The National Defense Forces numbers also increase to 50,000. The Department of Economy works with the Department of Defense to strengthen the naval capabilities of the Philippine Navy.
  • Technology: The Philippines though a 3rd world nation wishes to become a regional power within Southeast Asia or even Asia itself. By achieving that, the country will have to purchase multiple new technologies from China, US, or the European Federation.
  • Energy: The Republic of the Philippines uses solar, hydro, and nuclear power.
  • Politics: The New Philippine Nationalist Party criticizes the government in backing down and refusing to invade the country of Papa New Guinea. The NPNP receives a large number of supporters and members particularly hard-line nationalists and patriots. Sara Duterte joins the NPNP.
  • Space: Southeast Asian Space Exploration League begins the construction of their very first satellite which would finish by 2037. The satellite is called the “White Flower” as the machine has a flower shaped structure. The White Flower satellite can improve communication and internet connection in Southeast Asia while also secretly allowing the NPIA to spy on its neighbors easily.
  • Laws and Policies: Several economic policies are introduced by the Robredo administration that improved the economy. The Philippine government also began making new diplomatic ties with the Far Eastern, recognizing it as the true government of Russia. President Robredo criticizes and protests against the occupation of Russia by other nations, saying that a new form of imperialism has formed.
  • Infrastructure: The Quezon Military Naval Port and the Mindanao Airfield is constructed with both being the largest of their kind in the country. We send most of our powerful naval warships to the Quezon port while also sending our advanced aircraft to the Mindanao Airfield.

International Affairs:

  • China: We wish to work with the Chinese government in improving the Philippine homeland in terms of technology and military by purchasing or constructing new technological innovations between our nations scientists and engineers. [Chinese Player Response]
    • Chinese Response: We would love to help. Let us know which ideas you have in mind, and we will be glad to accommodate and assist.
    • Philippine Response: We would like the Chinese to secretly send their most esteemed engineers and scientists along with their blueprints of technological innovations to the the Philippines. We also would like to purchase one of their aircraft carriers if possible. [Chinese Player Response]
    • Chinese Response: While we wish to work with the Philippines and agree to send 100 engineers and scientists, we cannot send blueprints of technological innovations, due to the confidential nature of them. If you wish to purchase the Liaoning Carrier for 50 million dollars, we will gladly sell it as soon as possible.
    • Philippines Response: We thank the Chinese government in helping us improve our status in Asia and we also will immediately purchase the Lianing aircraft carrier as soon as possible. [Chinese Player Response]
    • Chinese Response: We send the Liaoning immediately after receiving the payment, offering to tow the ship to whichever port The Philippines would like.
    • Philippine Response: The Liaoning carrier can be towed to the Quezon Naval Port in Northern Luzon.
  • Papa New Guinea: We wish to negotiate and work with the government of Papa New Guinea to allow both our special forces team to track down and take down the NPA leadership without any invasion or war. [Mod Response]
    • Mod Response: They refuse, citing the fact they were threatened already by the Philippines.
  • Invasion of Taiwan: We promise not to interfere with Chinese military operations against Taiwan but we would propose that some islands in the south of Taiwan and even a small part of Southern Taiwan be annexed by the Philippines. If the Chinese government accepts this, our military forces in the north will immediately begin the invasion, codenamed Operation Viltrite. [Chinese Player Response]
    • Chinese Response: We would ask the Philippines to halt this operation. Of course, you may still proceed, however this would earn a military response from the DRC, and pending a vote, the entire Democratic Union. What we will allow, is a possible Sino-Filipino mixed use land area. This would eliminate the need for the Philippines to send military resources and allow us to avoid war, but also give the Philippines some more land under the watch of the Chinese government.
    • Philippine Response: After much discussion between top military and government officials, we eventually accept a Sino-Filipino mixed use of Southern Taiwan. We also send 300 Filipino soldiers to assist our Chinese allies in taking Taiwan to allow at least even a small portion of troops to gain combat experience while also strengthening ties with China. [Chinese Player Response]
    • Chinese Response: We accept this, and thank the Philippines for their positive response in this aspect. We accept the soldiers as well, offering to train them if the Philippines wishes.
    • Philippine Response: We accept the offer of China training our soldiers
  • Indonesia: [SECRET] We contact the Chinese regarding Indonesia’s refusal to join their union and request if we could launch an invasion of the Sabah region in Northern Indonesia to pressure them to join the Democratic Union. [SECRET] [Chinese Player Response]
    • DRC Response: We intend to continue pressuring Indonesia to join, however we will not take military action against the nation at this time. If the Philippines wishes to invade, we would support you with resources and military equipment. We hope the Philippines understands, as we are already in hot water over our invasion of Taiwan, and any further conflict may send the world to war with us. Additionally, being one of the major players in the Democratic Union, we must represent the Union in a nature which is respectful of peace and prosperity.
    • Philippine Response: We acknowledged this and begin Operation Victory, the invasion of Northern Indonesia by next year. The invasion force that was prepared for the invasion of New Guinea is now transported to the Southeastern islands near Sabah but before we begin hostilities with Indonesia, we send a diplomatic message to the Indonesian government to join the Democratic Union or go to war. [Mod Response]
    • Mod Response: Indonesia refuses, citing their wish to remain completely independent in soveriegnty.
    • Italian Response: We state that if Phillipines invades Indonesia in any way, Italy will officially declare war on the Phillipines and defend Indonesia. If Phillipines will act like a tyrannical warmongering nation and refuses to respect foreign sovereignety, we will not hesitate to engage you in hostilities. We will only be defending Indonesia so you have no legitimate reason to call upon your allies for support.

Italyflag.png Italian Republic

  • Government: Unitary Parliamentary Republic
  • Ideology: N/A
  • President: Matteo Lorenzo
  • Prime Minister: Fedro Blasi
  • Ruling Party: Democratic Party

  • Capital City: Rome
  • Population: 58,498,067
  • Economy: Italy is a highly developed market economy, with a competitive primary sector and a developed secondary sector with manufacture of machinery, vehicles, pharmaceuticals, furniture, food and clothing. There is also a large booming tourism and banking industry, as well as being one of the greatest exporters of luxury goods. Unemployment and the black economy are slowly decreasing, and people live relatively happy lives.
  • Internal Affairs:
    • General Election: Fedro Blasi’s Democratic Party, a centre left party, won enough seats to win majority in both the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate of the Republic. Blasi narrowly beat the incumbent prime minister Martina Sambucini, who resigned despite her party winning the second most seats. The Five Star Movement won the third most seats, with Lega and Forza Italia barely winning any seats. Blasi promised improved foreign relations, a stronger economy and more rapid climate reforms.
    • Carbon Neutral 2040: In an ambitious plan, Blasi move the target for carbon neutrality to 2040. To help this, the ban on nuclear energy is lifted, but prioritising the usage of thorium nuclear plants and fusion research rather than standard fission. The number of renewable plants is greatly increased, with new wind farms and solar farms being built to replace fossil fuel plants. Blasi also authorises the construction of the two carbon capture plants. Investment into green steel and graphene concrete also increases, as the first carbon neutral building is built using graphene concrete and powered by solar panels.
    • Space Exploration: We launch a team of 4 astronauts to the moon, making them the first Italian astronauts to land on the moon from Italian soil. The Italia II, an improved version of the original Sino-Italian Italia rocket, was responsible for their launch and will launch another 4 astronauts to the moon next year. The team of 4, Alessandro Ricci, Sofia Bavasso, Tommaso Rossi and Serena Venuti, will begin surveying the moon for the best area to set up a potential colony and will become the first Italian astronauts to live on the moon for a period of time.

  • Wars and Conflicts:
    • Military: With the recent Chinese expansion, more emphasis is placed on military strength. The number of active and reserve personnel is increased, while the number of drone, artillery and armoured units are increased. The new Lazio-class cruisers Lazio and Sardinia begin construction as anti-ship and bombardment units, as the Caucasus falling under the control of China would pose a direct threat to Italy. [SECRET] We begin researching the possibility, practicality and credibility of phased plasma weaponry, anti-drone warfare, artificial intelligence and skycarriers, and expand our cyberwarfare capabilities. These weapons would give us an edge over an invader should war occur. [/SECRET] With current expansion, the joke about Italian tanks have 4 reverse gears and 1 forward gear is pretty much redundant.
      • Drones:[SECRET] Our drone warfare capabilities begin expanding. The drones are designed to be specialised in striking down targets without detection. [/SECRET]
      • Air Defence System: The air defence system GALILEO begins construction, composing of anti-SAM batteries, missile systems, electronic disruption systems and extensive radar stations to cover the nation.
    • Boko Haram War: We continue to conduct searches for Boko Haram strongholds and wipe them from the region. In the meantime, we begin humanitarian efforts in aiding the people of northern Nigeria affected by the war.
  • International Affairs:
    • Russia: We support the efforts of nations to secure peace in Russia but for those nations to avoid annexing territory if possible.
    • Democratic Republic of China: While the Italian government does not initially comment on the recent Chinese expansion, the Italian public is in uproar. Many are branding the Chinese government as warmongers and imperialists after their invasion of the Caucasus nations and Taiwan. President Lorenzo then condemned the invasion and expansion, stating, “If China can not respect the nation’s basic sovereignty for its own greed, then how can we, a nation afloat in a world of giants, trust them? Did those people who were absorbed into this new ‘democratic’ union vote for it? If they did not, then we are witnessing the rise of a tyranny under the guise of democracy.” After being elected, Prime minister Blasi stated, “We have no idea of China’s aims or what they want, or whether they wish to hurt us. However, we must pick our allies wisely, and the recent actions of China suggest that they are not to be trusted, for no one can trust a country which invades another without justification.”
      • UPDATE:Following the Chinese response, Blasi holds a meeting with his cabinet ministers over the recent Chinese response and decide the best of action is to negotiate. Blasi then makes a public statement, apologising for any harm caused by the recent messages and thanking the Chinese government for understanding their position. All we wish for is that China not militarily intervene in European affairs unless requested by a member of the European Defence Force against an external threat, and that after Taiwan is returned to the control of the DRC, the normal trade from and to the province resumes. [Player response]
      • Chinese Response: China will fully respect The EDF's independent affairs in Europe. We thank Italy for the rectification of the issue, and will fully allow Taiwan to trade independently and act independently under membership of the Democratic Union.
      • UPDATE #2:After the Democratic Union membership goes through the roof, mass panic ensues. With Egypt now a member, we are pretty much directly threatened by the DU. The so called Turkish Wars of Independence is especially concerning as the Democratic Union will clearly claim the area for themselves by setting up puppet states. Even with Chinese reassurance of its true purpose, their recent threats towards the USA (which only want to protect allies) is almost imperialistic. After days of debate, Blasi finally announces, "It is with a heavy heart that i announce this. The Italian Parliament has overwhelmingly voted that China is a threat to world peace and aims to disrupt the soverignety of others. It allies are not much better." Many consider the Parliament's decision a step too far to provoking China into an invasion. Blasi hopes to formalise talks with China about the world status.
    • European Defence Force: We suggest further military exercises, especially due to the current situation. We also call upon our allies (all members of the EDF and observers) to show their support in making the Philippines back down from its invasion of Indonesia. [MOD/PLAYER response]
      • EDF Membership: We extend membership to India, Anglosphere, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Cyprus, Nigeria, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Guyana, Suriname, Cuba, Haiti, The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Bahamas, Barbados, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Mexico, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Angola, Botswana, Japan, Russia, Far Eastern Republic, Namibia, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and Fiji. If all submissions are successful, then the new alliance will be renamed the Atlantic-Pacific Shield Alliance. [Mod/Player Responses]
        • Anglosphere.webp US Response: The United States is honoured to be invited to the EDF and eagerly awaits the approval of the EDF for membership. It is precisely in this time of global insecurity that grudges must be put aside and old friendships rekindled.
    • United States of Anglosphere: We request a naval exercise conducted together, in preparation if Italy must go to war to defend Indonesia. [Player Response]
      • Anglosphere.webp US Response: The United States would gladly participate in naval exercises with Italy off the coast of Australia and New Zealand, with a particular focus on Indo-Pacific challenges to global security. If requested and if the European Federation would permit it, naval exercises in the Mediterranean Sea are also an option. [Player Responses]


  • Flag of Europe.png
    European Federation
    • Government: The European Federation is a Federal Constitutional Republic, with a bicameral legislature, the European Senate for the full member states of the country; and the European Parliament for all of the extended members of our sphere.
      • Prime Minister: Mario Czaja (until 4th April) Manuel Neuer (from 19th September)
      • President (of the Parliament): Magdalena Andersson
      • Ruling Party: European Socialist Party
    • Ideology: Social Democracy
    • Capital City: Brussels
    • Population: 194.2 Million
    • Economy: The European Union possesses the 3rd largest economy in the world, with a mix of capitalism and socialism. Our main sources of income are from taxes, high-quality production of airplanes and cars, and trade. Citizens live happy and fulfilled lives, and with our robust economy, nothing can seriously pose a challenge to our country's economy.
    • Wars and Conflicts:
      • The Russian Warlord Era has definitely brought some instability into the Federation, with the refugee crisis causing a humanitarian crisis. This further increased the unpopularity of our now-former PM.
    • Internal Affairs:
      • Scandinavian Independence? - The increasing aminosity between the Franco-German Union and the Scandinavian States are starting to cause issues in the country. Our alliance with China has not been met with the best of reactions, and many people in Scandinavia are protesting about the idiocy of trying to ally with another superpower, a warmongering one in fact. The leader of the forefront is a certain 31-year-old ranter from Sweden...I wonder who could that be.
        • Czaja gets VNC'ed - After the poor handling of the refugee crisis from Russia and the increasing unpopularity of the nation, Czaja has recieved the Vote of No Confidence from his party. And...he's gone. With the new General Elections coming up, Andersson became the temporary leader of the EF until the election.
        • An Interesting Candidate - When the European Socialist Party (S&D's desendants) voted on their leader in 2034, someone unexpected won to be the forerunner for the Prime Minister role...former soccer player Manuel Neuer. Neuer, now a 48-year-old politician, has been active in his advocacy of the regulation of capitalism and children's welfare, and since his retirement from professional football in 2027, became a member of the ESP, standing on the centrist side of the main leftist party of the EF. He has almost no experience in politics, but his popularity, combined with his brief governorship of Westphalia, has elevated him to become the leader of the ESP and potentially, the Prime Minister of the EF.
        • Final Election Results - And the final results are in...Neuer's ESP won by a slim majority! The EPP, led by Aurelien Pradie (also 48), has conceded the election, and as Deutsches Welt said: "This is literally Zelensky but from the EF!"
      • Under the new leadership of Neuer, he completed the European Football League system, admitting the remaining Scandinavian clubs as part of the new EFL system. So far, the EPL (European Premier League) is dominated by PSG and Bayern Munich.
      • Along with this, Neuer swore to the rest of the European Union that the EU will begin to de-centralize as a whole, though the core parts (France, Germany, Poland, Czechia, Austria and Benelux) will be further integrated to form a sense of European identity.
      • Space Mission to Moon - The ESA is now planning for a space mission to the Moon, and to start catching up to the US in terms of space exploration.
    • International Affairs: State your reaction or stance on what happens in other nations.
      • China's invasion into Mongolia is not we had hoped the new regime to be. As a result, we suspend the alliance betwen us and China, though remain a sense of aminosity between us and the Anglos.
      • Our new Prime Minister Neuer strives to repair the tensions between us and the Anglosphere, which is mainly due to their annexation of Ireland, an EU member state; the former USA's imperialization of Europe, along with disagreements on how to deal with China and Russia, which caused an economic crisis in the mid-2020s.
      • Anglosphere.webp US Response: The President of the Anglosphere would be grateful if a summit could be held between the governments of the USA and Europe to mend relations and work towards a brighter future together.

Turn III - 2035

Well, recent climate issues due to global warming has proven disasterous, with Egypt and Sudan now at war with each oher due to water. War seems to be creeping up across Africa, with Morocco now fighting Algeria and Western Sahara, while the interior of Sahara is at war with each other for control over the River Niger. The DRC has fully fractured into 4 states, two of which were annexed by the Republic of Congo and the EAF. Russia is starting to mend together with Navalny declaring the New Russian Republic, consisting of West Russia, while the Anglos, Chinese and the EF all established their own puppet states in Russia. With China's continued warmongering with their invasion of Japan, and with Europe and Anglosphere trying to mend their relations, is a WW3 on the horizon?

ChinaFlag.jpg- The Democratic Union

  • Government: The Government of The Democratic Union is a Multi-Party Democratic Union, which consists of the Democratic Council, the highest authority on legislation within the Union. The DUC is currently divided into five main parties, The New Communist Party, The Progressive Party, The Moderate Party, The Islamic Fundamentalist Party, and the People's Party. Dozens of smaller parties have seen various levels of success within their elections.
    • Triumvirate: Zhou Rizal (Head of State), Samir Ali Khan (Head of Triumvirate), Ivan Qi (Head of Government)
    • Legislature: Democratic Council
      • Ruling Party: The People's Party
  • Ideology: Capitalist Democracy
  • Capital: Beijing
    • Major Cities: Chongqing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Pyongyang, Almaty, Vladivostok, Ulaanbaatar, etc.
  • Population: 3.363 Billion People
  • Economy: Our economy is currently the largest of all nations on the planet, with our GDP in both nominal and PPP terms eclipsing all others. We are growing quickly due to our partially AI planned economy.
    • GDP PPP: 81.4 Trillion USD
    • HDI: 0.915
  • War and Conflict:
    • Aircraft Carriers: With China alone possessing 43 carriers ranging from 45,000 tons of displacement to 270,000 tons, the Democratic Naval Forces could be easily the most powerful on earth. However, with more countries in the Democratic Union constructing aircraft carriers due to cross border research and information sharing, the carrier count has now reached 53, with Iran, Korea, Pakistan and Sakha now possessing capabilities to independently build carriers, adding to the total. A new supercarrier adds a 54th, being 300,000 tons of displacement, and the work of Iran, Korea, Sakha, China and Pakistan combined. Saudi Arabia also helped as well. This new carrier, named the Giant, is simply that, a nearly unsinkable floating military city of sorts.
    • In America's Backyard?: A new whitepaper, co-authored by the Latin American Association of Defense and the Beijing Institute for War Studies, addresses the growing threat the United States may perceive the Democratic Union as, seeing as new states in the Americas have joined the Democratic Union. In part, the paper reads "With the new acceptance of the Democratic Republic of Mexico and Cuba in particular, the concern of the Democratic Union as a possible hostile force is growing, especially among likely American and Anglo populations. As super states and unions begin to form, we must beg the question, what would happen in a potential war. The former nation of Australia, a key point for the USA, is now directly sea-bordered by the Democratic Republic of Papua New Guinea and the Democratic Republic of the Solomon Islands, as well as close to The Democratic Republic of Malaysia and the Democratic Republic of East Timor. If an attack were to occur on either of these nations for unprovoked reasons, the Democratic Union, as stated in their constitution and Security Council discussion, would be forced to defend a member nation. This depends on whether the member nation has requested assistance of course, however they likely would. In any case, if a war occurs between the two largest world powers, the result will be nothing we have seen before."
    • Turkish Independence Wars: The Turkish Independence Wars come to an end, with Iraq officially annexing the nations of Syria and Lebanon. Although helped by member nations of the Democratic Union, the Democratic Republic of Syria and Lebanon will now prove crucial to a possible defense against a new Turkish expansion. We hope they do not choose to expand further East, as it is likely we will not be so kind as to not invade their nation as well.
    • The Sino-Japan Conflict: This year, the Sino-Japanese invasion begins, with a full force of 300,000 Chinese Naval Forces deployed from Northern Korea to Kyushu. Dozens of ICBM's are launched on major military areas, none of them nuclear however. The result is expected to lean heavily in China's favor, although this will likely not gain them any allies or support from any of their allies. Either way, the Democratic Union does not interfere, but does state the following "As is military doctrine, we cannot stop an active invasion from a member nation by force, unless voted upon or by court ordered decision. We also cannot allow the Democratic Republic of China to be attacked, as that would set a negative precedent for the rest of the member nations. We ask all nations around the world not to interfere, and ask that the Democratic Republic of China to cease their invasions in the future. We condemn the decision to invade, however we cannot do much at this time."
    • Nuclear Count: Nuclear weapons within the Democratic Union as a whole have passed the 10k mark, with 10 thousand nuclear weapons able to be deployed at any time. This will likely overwhelm enemy defenses, but poses to serve as only a deterrent and not a first strike use. If a country launches a nuclear weapon, we will likely arrange a counterstrike or allow our missile defenses to do their work, hopefully stopping the nuclear missile before it hits any member nations.
  • Domestic Affairs:
    • Sakhan Superpower: The Sakhans seem to have a newfound resolve to become a superpower. The Democratic Republic of Sakha itself does not encompass the former Sakhan Republic in it's entire nature, however the Sakhans now find themselves increasingly growing in population and GDP due to heavy investment by both the DRC and the DREK. Although Sakha is no closer to becoming a large power such as China or The Democratic Republic as a whole, they do serve as a deterrent to possible USA and Far Eastern expansion, due to their military.
    • New Democratic Unions: On January 1st of the new year, the countries of Mexico, The Solomon Islands, East Timor, Malaysia, Cuba, Palestine, Nicaragua and Gran Colombia decided to join the Democratic Union. This comes as a shocking move to many, due to the presence of the Democratic Republic on every continent now (except Antarctica). The Democratic Union now claims over 40 member nations, allowing to rise to a level unseen before on any level internationally or domestically.
    • Democratic Republic of Korea and Taiwan: Much debate is held on what to do now that the Democratic Republic of Taiwan and (South) Korea are members, albeit by force. The Democratic Republic of Taiwan was invaded by China, however the Democratic Union ruled and voted both, Taiwan must remain grounds for neutral forces and allowed to resume the regular course of their activities. Taiwan, or the DRT, is now an official member of the Democratic Union, although still independent in many ways as well. The same applies for the new Democratic Republic of Southern Korea, while they are independent in many ways, they are still a member of the Democratic Union and controlled mostly by the Democratic Republic of Northern Korea.
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • Statement on Water Wars: The Egypt-Sudan Water Wars are a direct attack on Egypt, our member nation. As a result, the Security Council decides to try diplomacy first, releasing a statement that says "To the Esteemed Sudanese Government, The Democratic Security Council requests you end this needless war. Water is not an issue for much of the nations of the Democratic Union, since mass desalination began with the new adopted resolution "A Resolution to Prevent The Onset Of Mass Dehydration." If these hostilities are not ceased, we may be forced to intervene on behalf of the Democratic Republic of Egypt. We will give diplomacy a chance first however."
    • DRT: The Democratic Republic of Taiwan, now an independent but lifelong member of both the Democratic Republic of China and the Democratic Union, will, for the first time in nearly 70 years, be given independence in some forms as well as the ability to represent itself in the United Nations. Although the Democratic Republic of Taiwan was to be under Chinese control, a recent vote passed among the members of the Democratic Union Security Council affirmed the need for neutrality within Taiwan, stationing forces from China and Sakha both in Taiwan to keep order.
    • Block of War Form: A so called 'Block of War Form' is introduced, which can allow member countries in the Democratic Union to possibly prevent or stop a war, depending on a Democratic Security Council decision. A resolution would be submitted, allowing the Union's Security Council to view the issue at hand. If the issue merits a possible reference to the Supreme Court or the Court on Defense and War, the Security Council will send the resolution to be decided in a judicial manner. For example, the Southern Korea will likely wish to submit a Block of War Form to our Security Council, allowing the Union and the Security Council to review the invasion of Japan by the Democratic Republic of China. If a SC vote is passed against the invasion, China has the right to protest and have the matter reviewed once again or to take the decision to court. Also note, this does not stop the invasion or conflict while it takes place, however it will likely help to soothe the conflict.

  • Defence Affairs:
    • Chinese Invasion of Japan: Following the Chinese invasion of Japan, the US Armed Forces is placed on DEFCON 2. Congress approves an emergency increase of the US defence budget to 15% of GDP, bringing this year's defence budget to $6 trillion USD. A further 400,000 marines and 300,000 soldiers are deployed to Australia and New Zealand to defend the continent in the case of an attack. They are supported by the newly created 4th and 5th Pacific Fleets of the US Navy, each of which contains 4 newly constructed aircraft carriers and together have close to a 48 destroyers and 35 cruisers. The 700,000 US Marines in Australian are organised into the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th Marine Pacific Expeditionary Forces. All are placed on high alert.
    • Defence of Japan: US troops in Japan and the 3rd Pacific Fleet stationed in Japan are caught in the conflict between Japan and China, and are ordered to assist the defence of the Japanese homeland. This marks the first open conflict between American and Chinese troops since the Korean and Vietnam wars. No declaration of war is made as a general mobilisation has not occurred and the defence of Japan is considered a policing act (in defence of national sovereignty) and not an act of war. Shipments of weapons to Japan, particularly anti-ship missiles, begin immediately, escorted by the 1st Pacific Fleet based on Hawaii.
    • Preparations: [Secret] A massive fleet of specially designed submarines lay millions of mines and loitering munitions (ie. artificially intelligent mines/torpedoes that camouflage themselves in the local environment or mimic the radar signature of wildlife; and "loiter" until a target is acquired) across the Pacific Ocean. The 1st Pacific Fleet in Hawaii is reinforced by the 6th Pacific Fleet. 4,000 aircraft are deployed to Australia and New Zealand, stationed deep in the desert, safe from invasion forces. [/Secret]
    • Joint-Service Cyberwarfare Corps: [Secret] The Joint-Service Cyberwarfare Corps (JSCC) is formed to coordinate the cyberwarfare capabilities of the various branches of the armed forces. As the US is on DEFCON 2, daily drills and exercises are conducted to prepare for both defensive and offensive cyberwarfare. [/Secret]
    • Special Operations Directorate: [Secret] The Special Operations Directorate (SOD) is formed by the Department of Defence to recruit and train partisans, rebels, and other anti-government groups in the Democratic Union, in an effort to destabilise the region from within. There is little doubt that while governments, many of them intimidated by China, may have chosen to join the DU, large portions of the population and various organised groups and militias, particularly in Central Asia and MENA, were opposed to joining the DU. It is these groups, variously labelled as terrorists, rebels, and partisans, that the SOD will target, train, and arm. [Mod Response] [/Secret]
    • Space Force:
      • Nike Station & Project Ultor: [Secret] Nike Station begins the production of thousands of Ultior II and (the newlt developed) Ultior III missiles, deploying them across orbit. Ultior III missiles include EMP blasts to allow for a much larger area of effect, which permits for less accuracy due to increased speed (Mach 10). Separately, Nike Station is heavily reinforced with armour plating and point defence cannons. The station also ramps up production of boarding craft, having produced 25 by March. [/Secret]
      • Fort Diana: [Secret] Fort Diana is rapidly expanded to house 700 marines and 100 sentinels. A number of surface-to-surface missile systems are constructed in addition to a large number of camouflaged outposts suspiciously close to the Chinese lunar base. [/Secret]
      • Lunar Gateway: [Secret] NASA's Lunar Gateway station in orbit around the moon is commandeered by the USSF and outfitted with orbital bombardment technology. [/Secret]
    • Defence Technologies:
      • Nuclear ICBMs: The US nuclear force is placed on high alert.
      • Drones: [Secret] Production of AI drone swarms is such that 150,000 suicide drones are deployed to Australia and Hawaii by January. A further 1 million are deployed by March. [/Secret]
      • Orbital Bombardment: [Secret] Following the declaration of DEFCON 2, the Space Force completes the deployment of 70 orbital bombardment platforms in orbit, allowing for 70% decimation of Chinese ground and naval assets within 6 hours thanks to an individual rate of fire of 4 projectiles per minute. Orbital Bombardment projectiles are mainly designed to penetrate nuclear-proof bunkers and facilities, taking advantage of the concentrated kinetic energy of orbital bombardment (unlike the explosive energy of a nuclear weapon). Nonetheless, a number of rods contain weaponised viruses, algae and bacteria to be used against water, agriculture, and population centres if necessary.[/Secret]
