NEW NATIONS

  • Bougainville: Bougainville's path to independence finds its origins in the "Crisis of Copper" during the 1980s and 90s, instigated by disputes over environmental damage and revenue distribution from the Panguna Mine. A decade of conflict ended with the 2001 Bougainville Peace Agreement, ushering in a ceasefire and paving the way for an independence referendum. The Bougainville Self-Governance Act of 2015 laid the groundwork for local autonomy. The region's aspirations reached fruition during the 2020 referendum when an overwhelming majority voted for independence. Subsequent negotiations with Papua New Guinea led to the historic Port Moresby Agreement of 2025, recognizing Bougainville's status as an independent nation. Now, Bougainville continues to navigate its way towards a stable future as a fledgling state.
  • West Bank (Palestine): The long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict reached a turning point with the 2035 Tel Aviv Agreement. Orchestrated under the auspices of the United Nations, this accord provided for a phased withdrawal of Israeli forces from the West Bank. This resolution was further solidified in 2040 with the Jerusalem Peace Accord, leading to Palestine's official recognition as an independent nation. By 2043, after a series of delicate diplomatic maneuvers, Palestine emerged as a sovereign state, marking a monumental achievement in Middle Eastern history.
  • Catalonia: Catalonia's struggle for independence was a lengthy journey marked by cultural friction, political strife, and widespread civil unrest. The "New Catalan Spring" of 2042 saw an unprecedented surge in the independence movement, leading to the controversial Independence Referendum of 2043, which was declared illegal by the Spanish government. However, widespread international support and a series of EU-led mediations led to the historic Madrid-Catalonia Accord of 2047. The agreement recognized Catalonia's sovereignty, finally marking the birth of a new nation.
  • Kurdistan: The formation of an independent Kurdistan is a testament to intricate diplomacy and international intervention. Despite decades of strife, the Kurdish question found a peaceful resolution with the 2045 Erbil Agreement. This unprecedented accord, led by a US-China coalition, necessitated significant geopolitical compromises, including US withdrawal from Syria and eased sanctions on Iran. The subsequent Geneva Kurdish Resolution of 2049 formally recognized Kurdistan as a sovereign nation. The new state, smaller than envisaged, but nevertheless independent, marked a significant development in Middle Eastern politics.
  • Scotland: Scotland's path to independence was marked by decades of political debate over sovereignty and economic viability. The tipping point came with the controversial "Edinburgh Agreement" of 2050, which allowed for a new independence referendum. In 2051, the people of Scotland voted overwhelmingly for independence, driven by economic dissatisfaction and a desire for closer integration with the EU. The English-Scottish Accord of 2052 finally recognized Scotland's sovereignty, marking a significant reshaping of the United Kingdom's political landscape.
  • Somaliland: The de facto state of Somaliland fought a long and tenacious battle for international recognition. After decades of maintaining relative stability and democratic governance, the "Hargeisa Pact" of 2048, mediated by the African Union and the United Nations, recognized Somaliland's claim to sovereignty. The agreement marked the successful end of Somaliland's quest for international recognition, leading to its official emergence as an independent nation in 2049.
  • West Papua: The people of West Papua, after decades of conflict with the Indonesian government, gained independence following the 2050 "Jayapura Agreement". This historic treaty, brokered by the United Nations and a coalition of Pacific nations, acknowledged West Papua's right to self-determination and granted the region independence. The agreement outlined a comprehensive transition plan that ensured a peaceful handover of power and guaranteed the protection of the rights and welfare of the West Papuan people. International observers oversaw the implementation of the agreement, ensuring a smooth and transparent process. The formation of an interim government paved the way for the establishment of democratic institutions and the drafting of a constitution. By 2052, West Papua had successfully completed its transition period and emerged as a fully independent nation, with recognition from the international community.
  • Aceh: Aceh's struggle for independence was driven by a socialistic/native movement that sought to assert the region's cultural and political autonomy. In the wake of intense social unrest and armed conflict, the Indonesian government and the Aceh independence movement entered into negotiations mediated by the United Nations and regional powers. The "Banda Aceh Accord" of 2047 marked a significant breakthrough, establishing a framework for a peaceful resolution. The agreement granted Aceh a high degree of autonomy and recognition of its distinct cultural identity. The subsequent referendum in 2050 saw an overwhelming majority of Acehnese vote in favor of independence. With the international community's support, Aceh embarked on a path towards self-determination. By 2053, Aceh emerged as an independent nation, committed to building a prosperous and inclusive society for its citizens.

In the year 2050, the world stands on the brink of a new era. The United States and China, the two superpowers, are locked in a delicate balance of power, their eyes set not just on Earth but also on the resources that lie beyond our atmosphere. Lunar bases, asteroid mining, and space exploration have become the new arenas of competition, but the Earth itself remains a chessboard of infinite complexity.

As the year begins, a shocking incident disrupts this tense equilibrium. A major cyberattack, the likes of which the world has never seen, strikes the global financial system. Digital currencies plummet, stock markets crash, and economies around the world are thrown into chaos. The origin of the attack is unknown, but suspicions and accusations quickly begin to fly.

Meanwhile, in the South China Sea, a long-simmering territorial dispute escalates unexpectedly. An incident between naval vessels sparks a diplomatic crisis, threatening to ignite a military confrontation that could draw in nations from around the world. The United Nations calls for calm and restraint, but it's unclear if the pleas will be heeded.

The third phase will focus on cyber defense and resilience operations, where we have to enhance our capabilities and coordination against malicious cyber activities. The fourth phase will focus on confidence-building and crisis management operations, where we have to promote dialogue and de-escalation in potential conflict areas. The exercise will be conducted in a cooperative and respectful manner, in accordance with international law and norms. We will respect each other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and avoid any actions that could cause misunderstanding or tension. We will also seek to involve other countries and organizations that have an interest and stake in the regions and issues involved in the exercise. Due to the concerns of international espionage, we will use older equipment for the exercise, which will still be sufficient for the purposes of training and demonstration. The exercise will be a historic opportunity for the ESA and NATO, as it will be the first joint military exercise ever conducted by the two organizations. It will also be a positive step for the improvement of relations between the ESA and NATO, as it will show our willingness and ability to work together for common goals. We hope that the exercise will send a clear message to the world that the ESA and NATO are not adversaries or rivals, but partners and friends. We look forward to hearing from our NATO counterparts on this proposal. We believe that through this exercise, we will increase our mutual understanding and trust, expand our cooperation and coordination, and deepen our friendship and partnership. We also hope that through this exercise, we will contribute to the maintenance of regional and global peace and stability. However, we understand that such an exercise requires the approval of both organizations, so we will respect the decision-making process of each member state. We hope that both ESA and NATO members will vote in favor of this exercise, as it will benefit both organizations and their respective interests. [Player Response]
  • Nuclear Disclosure: The China Nuclear Command and Control Center (CNCCC) is proud to announce that we have voluntarily disclosed our nuclear numbers for the year 2050. This is a continuation of our policy of transparency and confidence-building, which we have implemented since 2030. We have made this policy in the hope of advancing global nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. According to our official data, China possesses a total of 6,500 nuclear warheads as of 2050, which are distributed among the three components of our nuclear triad: land-based missiles, submarine-based missiles, and strategic bombers. The breakdown of our nuclear warheads by delivery system is as follows: Land-based missiles: 2,500 warheads. These include intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) such as the DF-51, DF-41A, and JL-5, as well as medium-range ballistic missiles (MRBMs) such as the DF-28 and DF-23C. These missiles are deployed in silos, mobile launchers, or underground tunnels across China. Submarine-based missiles: 3,000 warheads. These include submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) such as the JL-4 and JL-6, which are carried by our Type 098 and Type 100 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs). Strategic bombers: 1,000 warheads. These include air-launched cruise missiles (ALCMs) such as the CJ-20 and CJ-30, which are carried by our H-20 and H-22 stealth strategic bombers. China’s nuclear force is strictly defensive in nature and follows the principle of no first use. China’s nuclear force is also kept at the minimum level necessary for maintaining national security and deterring potential adversaries. China’s nuclear force is also subject to strict command and control procedures and safeguards to prevent unauthorized or accidental use. China is committed to working with other nuclear-weapon states and the international community to achieve the ultimate goal of complete and verifiable nuclear disarmament. China is also committed to fulfilling its obligations under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and other relevant international instruments. China is also committed to supporting the peaceful use of nuclear energy and technology for the benefit of all humankind.

Flag of USA United States of America

  • Government: Federal Democratic Presidential Republic
  • Leader: President Zachariah Wong
  • Capital City: Washington, D.C.
  • Population: 395.54 million
  • Military Personnel: 1.5 million

Domestic Affairs:

  • Energy: Estimates by the Department of Energy project that commercially viable nuclear fusion will be achieved by 2055. The next step from there would be to make it as affordable as nuclear fission. In the meantime, the US constructs more nuclear fission power plants as it phases out fossil fuels.
  • Education: Beginning with the Education Reform Act 2030, continuing with the Vocational Education Act 2036, and finally with the Comprehensive Education Reform Act 2047, bipartisan efforts to reform K-12 and higher education have resulted in, among other things, the establishment of the American K-12 Education Council (AEC) with representatives from all 50 states and the US's many territories, with the task of establishing K-12 educational "best practice" guidelines for state and local education authorities and schools, as well as providing support to state and local education reformers. The most significant achievement of the AEC has been the reform of the school district system employed by most US states, rationalising, reorganisation and altering the structure, function and funding for these entities. Most US states have now disbanded dedicated school districts and transferred their responsibilities to state, county and local government entities. This has contributed to a major decline in educational inequality and an improvement in overall educational outcomes in the US. The other major outcome of these successive educational reforms have been the establishment of numerous trade and vocational education schools across the nation, and the concurrent introduction of accredited apprenticeships and internships. This has unlocked a route of higher education for large sections of the country who do not wish to proceed with expensive and often superfluous college degrees and improved the general quality of trades and professions within the country.
  • US-Mexico Border & Immigration: A series of Acts passed between 2030 and 2045, culminating in the Border Security & Immigration Act 2045 have resulted in the end of the US-Mexico Border Crisis. Measures that were implemented to achieve this outcome include the expansion of the US Border Patrol, the deployment of specially trained sect technologies including specialised drones and satellite technology, new agreements reached with Mexico and Latin America states, and the subsequent establishment of offshore migrant processing facilities in origin countries to deter migrants from attempting to cross the border. Above all, economic, social and political collaboration with Latin American countries is vital to ensure Latin America is no longer a region from which people seek to leave, but rather a home that Latin Americans can be proud of. It is hoped that the proposed TAFTA agreement will further this cooperation and take it to new heights. [See proposal below]
  • Drugs & Crime: Following the complete federal legalisation of recreational marijuana in 2028, the implementation of the Drug Decriminalisation & Health Crisis Act (DDHC) in 2040, and the gradual implementation of similar laws at the state level that resulted in the complete legalisation of marijuana and decriminalisation of drug use throughout the United States by 2048, the US has seen an unprecedented drop in crime rates. This includes drug-related crimes and non-drug-related crimes, attributable to a reduction in the power of cartels, gangs, and other organised crime. The US prison population has dropped 15% and drug arrests are down 71%. The War on Drugs is deemed over. A key feature of the DDHC is the establishment of the National Drug Rehabilitation Council (NDRC) whose role is to coordinate and oversee federal, state and local drug rehabilitation programmes, treating drug use as a health problem not a criminal offence. Usage of prohibited drugs is considered a civil offense and the punishment is mandatory rehabilitation. The termination of the war on drugs has allowed for the reorientation of the DEA and both state and local law enforcement to combating organised crime and drug cartels, which has seen enormous success.

Foreign Affairs:

  • CPTPP: The United States, a late member to the CPTPP having joined only in 2029, proposes the extension of the trade agreement to the Indian Ocean region, inviting India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nepal, among other nations, to join a renamed Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Asia-Pacific Partnership (CPAPP) [Mod/Player Responses]
    • Mod Response: India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka all agree, as long as the framework is similar to the CPTPP and the objectives of the agreement are economic and do not take sides.
  • TAFTA: The United States proposes a four-way free trade agreement between Europe, North America, South America and Africa to known as the Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement. The proposed agreement would focus on manufacturing, agriculture, resources and services. The objective of the agreement is to promote trade between these four continents in such a way that maximises the market available to member countries to allow them to grow the industries they are best equipped to specialise in and for Africa and Latin America to gain prominence as new centres for resource and manufacturing, securing for themselves lasting prosperity by tapping into their vast stores of resources and human talent. The proposed agreement would encourage large scale economic investment into Latin America and Africa, bringing higher-paying jobs, training and income to regions previously incapable of living up to their potential. A key element of the agreement stipulates the encouragement of the development of domestic firms in African and Latin American countries as partners in the supply chain process to avoid economic colonialism as was common in the past, and remains common with trade agreements initiated by "other" trade blocs that seek to own and control what isn't rightfully theirs instead of participating in free and fair trade. The development of domestic firms will be partly encouraged through the lowering of barriers to finance flows from developed countries to developing countries and the establishment of new bond and share markets in developing countries to allow investors in developed countries to provide funding to developing countries instead of Western corporations directly investing and controlling assets in Africa and Latin America. Thus, the future prosperity of all member nations will be ensured through mutually beneficial trade and investment. [Mod Responses]
    • Mod Response: A vast majority of nations decline, wishing to stick closer to regional trade agreements. The large suggestion is to propose something like this to the respective unions, the EU, USMCA, Mercosur and African Union.
    • Flag of USA United States Response: Following the unfortunate failure to create a large scale Atlantic free trade area, the diplomatic service thus negotiates a more direct series of regional trade agreements instead. A North Atlantic Free Trade Area (NAFTA) is proposed between the United States, Canada, Britain and the European Union, which should deepen economic integration between the historically allied region, allowing firms and labour to move and operate more freely between their borders, much like the EU's own Common Market, but slightly less borderless. [Mod Response] Separately, the United States seeks to work with European Union negotiators to sit down with Mercosur negotiators to identify key areas of possible future trade cooperation. The US and Europe particularly emphasise their desire to work with Latin America to invest in and develop the region as a new hub for resource and manufacturing. [Mod Response]
    • Mod Response: NAFTA is officially greenlit, after the EU, being the last entity to look it over, accepts the proposal. It is expected that this will likely run counter to other free trade areas and agreements, primarily RCEP and the BRICS+ Group. On the issue of Mercosur, the groups are a bit more divided. Owing to the more recent Latin American leftist swing, nations such as Argentina and Brazil have spearheaded Mercosur to move further away from the Anglo/Eurocentric world, to establish their own trade and identity. Mercosur currently strikes a precarious balance between Eastern led Blocs like BRICS+ and the SCO, and Western led Blocs like the new NAFTA and the EU. Due to this, Mercosur is still willing to negotiate, however they wish to be on very fair terms and to be unbiased in negotiation. [Player Response]
  • Young Africa Prosperity Program:
  • 73rd D-10 Summit: The 73rd D-10 Summit is successfully hosted in Washington D.C. A direct descendant of the G7 (from which it inherited its summit numbering), the G7 expanded to the D-9 in 2027 to include Australia and South Korea. Today, the D-10 (the D representing a commitment to liberal democracy) includes the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, India and the European Union (as an unenumerated member). Regular invitees include Spain and Indonesia. The 73rd Summit invitee list included Mexico, Nigeria (representing the African Union), and Israel.

Defence Affairs:

  • Air Force: The Air Force's sixth generation F-24 and the associated family of collaborative combat aircraft (CCA) as part of the Next Generation Air Dominance (NGAD) air superiority and "loyal wingman" UAV swarm systems have proven to be an excellent replacement for the F-22 and the F-15 since being introduced in the mid to late 2030s. However, as the Air Force's fleet of multirole F-35s begins to age, a seventh generation replacement is announced as being under development, with a first flight planned for 2052 and formal introduction to the fleet by 2060. The United Kingdom is invited to jointly develop certain sections of the aircraft system to mutually benefit both countries' own fighter development programs. [Mod Response]
    • Mod Response: The UK happily agrees, acknowledging their long-time history of cooperation with the United States.
  • Naval Air Force: The Navy's own sixth generation Northrop Grumman F/A-36 has proven to be a success since its introduction in the mid to late 2030s as a replacement of the Navy's then ageing F/A-18E and F/A-18F fleet of fighters. Seeing as it has come time to replace the Navy's own fleet of F-35 multirole aircraft, the Navy has announced a collaboration with the Air Force in development of a seventh generation multirole fighter. The new fighter will complement the Navy's existing fleet of F/A-36's, which are only due to be retired in the late 2060s.
  • RIMPAC: In addition to regular participants in the biennial Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) naval exercise, including Australia, Chile, Colombia, United Kingdom, France, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, South Korea, the Netherlands, the Philippines, and Thailand, this year, the US Navy invites long-time observers India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Ecuador to participate in the exercises [Mod Response] Taiwan is invited as an observer. [Mod Response]
    • Mod Response: Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Ecuador all agree, as it seems the world is becoming more closely intertwined. As Sino-Taiwanese relations have improved, Taiwan has taken more independent affairs, even represented in the UN with endorsement from China. Taiwan therefore wishes to join as an observer.
  • Fifth-Gen Aircraft Sales: Congress has approved a new round of export sales of new and second-hand F-22s to US defence partners around the world. Interested parties are invited to apply. The expected unit cost is $42 million for new aircraft and $25 million for second-hand units. [Mod/Player Responses]
    • Mod Response: All US allies are allowed to purchase F-22s if you wish to sell.
  • Light Fighter Aircraft Sales: Northrop Grumman has received approval to export its F-136 family of fighter aircraft, based on the F/A-36 design but with an emphasis on lower-cost light fighter roles, equivalent to a low cost fighter with fifth generation technology. This includes the F-136 (variants A, B, C for conventional, long-range and CATOBAR usage respectively), a stealth light fighter with a unit cost of $20 million; the F/A-136D Mountain Lion, a long-range multirole/attack aircraft with a unit cost of $25 million; the F-136E Sparrow, a light interceptor (with patrol and point-defence variants) at a unit cost of $18 million; and the F-136F Hyena, a variant of the F-136 equipped with CCA "loyal wingman" capability, allowing for air force's to incorporate pilot-directed UAV swarms into their formations and tactics. Sales are open to all US allies and strategic partners, with particular invitations sent to Taiwan, Uruguay, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. [Mod Responses]
    • Mod Response: All nations accept.

Space Affairs:

  • Artemis Program: The continuation of NASA's Artemis Program has resulted in the establishment of Artemis Base One (in 2027) and Artemis Base Two (2042). Artemis Base One is a NASA research station home to 45 personnel, mainly researching agriculture and medicine under lunar conditions, as well as studying the surface and subsurface of the Moon more generally. Base One has established a few dozen unmanned (with capacity to temporarily house up to 3 personnel if neccesary) outposts across the lunar surface to conduct research autonomously and via remote-control. Artemis Base Two is a collaboration between NASA and the private sector, and is currently home to 16 personnel, though it is expected to expand to accommodate up to 40 personnel by 2055 as the commercial sector takes over more of its operations. Base Two is primarily focused on two main objectives: self-reliant lunar colonisation (including on-site manufacturing from lunar resources) and the commercialisation of Helium-3 in preparation for projected breakthroughs in fusion energy this decade.
  • NASA-SpaceX MRC: The NASA-SpaceX Martian Research Colony, located in the Tharsis Rise, continues to expand, currently home to a joint crew of 105 astronauts, including 50 from SpaceX and 55 from NASA, working together on a shared mission to conduct research, serve as a base for Martian reconnaissance, and serve as a base camp for future Martian colonisation. The Martian Research Colony began when SpaceX landed 4 people on the surface of Mars in 2030. Sensing an opportunity for collaboration and sharing of costs, NASA joined the MRC in 2033, providing it with additional funding, technical expertise and personnel. The main objectives of the project are modest, twofold but mutually beneficial: to serve as an on-site base camp for conducting broad research on the nature of Mars, and to serve as a base camp for further Martian colonisation. Major areas of colonisation-related research include Martian agriculture and synthetic protein synthesis. As of 2050, SpaceX has completed construction of the Tharsis Spaceport, allowing for a dramatic increase in flights to and from Mars when Earth and Mars are at their closest. SpaceX intends for the MRC to become a hub for commercial Martian activity by 2055.
  • Hellas Program: The Hellas Program is a new program headed NASA and involving new industry partners to construct a new base in the Hellas Planitia to conduct scientific research, and in particular, investigate whether it contains glaciers. An overland expeditionary mission from the MRC has been scheduled for 2051 and is expected to take 4 months. The crew of 5 will oversee the setup of experimental largely automated or remote-controlled construction processes, including tunnelers and construction-related 3D-printing machines, which will construct/tunnel the basics of an unfurnished basecamp, and setup a basic Hellas Spaceport. The main staff of the Hellas Base Camp (25 individuals) will arrive from Earth with neccesary cargo in 2054. NASA proposes cooperation with the ESA, CSA, and JAXA to share resources and results, accelerating the development and work of the base. [Mod Response]
    • Mod Response: The mission is likely to go smoothly, due to favorable outflow channels from Hadriacus Mons complex. Large pockets of water and water ice are likely to be found in the area. Some concerns are raised though, the temperature is likely to reach anywhere from -70 to 0 degrees Celsius. Radiation and dust storms are other issues that may arise. However, materials science and biomedical engineering has largely solved these issues for the richest nations. Gallium Nitride for example is used often to protect astronauts from heavy radiation and silica aerogel based coatings can insulate their suits from extreme cold.
  • Kronos Program: NASA proposes a joint ESA-NASA-CSA-JAXA crewed mission to Saturn. In particular, the mission will fly a team of 10 astronauts to Saturn, whereupon it will divide into two parts, with one half going to Titan and the other to Enceladus to conduct research. This crewed mission will, with the support and funding of all parties involved, be launched in 2056, and will be preceded by 4 unmanned probes to be deployed this year, 2051, 2053 and 2055 respectively. Arrival of the crewed mission in orbit of Saturn is expected in 2060. It will be the most ambitious space mission ever attempted in Western, and possibly world history, due to the sheer amount of time the crew will spend away from Earth. It is comparable to the Chinese mission to Europe in duration and stress, and unlike missions to Mars and the Moon, for the sake of maintaining the purity of Enceladus for scientific reasons, owing to the comparative lack of neccesary resources on Enceladus, and due to the thick and toxic atmosphere of Titan, the Kronos Program is unlikely to build large scale encampments on the moons, and the main bases of operation will be the orbiters for each moon. Additionally, regular supplies must be shipped in to the mission crew, making the Kronos Program one of the most expensive NASA missions to date, hence the desire for cooperation with the ESA, CSA, and JAXA. The mission will not bring with it enough fuel for a return trip. The fuel neccesary for the return trip will instead be sent in a follow-up flight on a mostly unpowered ballistic flightpath, at much lower cost. Nonetheless, it is planned that the orbiters around Titan and Enceladus will expand and become permanent by 2062, with orbiting stations preferred over surface camps. [Mod Response]
    • Mod Response: Due to the budgets and experience of the four space agencies combined, it's likely that this mission will also succeed. While the mission will be heavily taxing on all parties involved, deep space or deep intra-solar exploration has been done, only, however, by Russia, China, the EU, Japan, India and the US. Only China and the US have the necessary economic attributes and space experience to get a human this far, the EU, Russia and India are currently developing this capacity, with the EU and India in particular coming along quickly.
  • Chinese Mission to Europa: The United States suggests to China that the scientific findings of its Europa mission should be shared with the world in keeping with current norms in the international space science community, and in return, the joint mission to Saturn promises to share all of its scientific findings with the world as well. Thus, neither China nor the partners of the Kronos Program will need to engage in needless redundant and expensive missions to the same place. [Player Response]
    • Chinese Response: After careful consideration, we are willing to fully announce our results, in the better interest of humanity. We do realize the taxing cost of return missions by other nations and states that would be detrimental to their costs, both in general budgets and space budgets. We would also, on a somewhat related note, ask for clarification of the Wolf Amendment, as this will largely prevent cooperation, due to the legal complexities of such a document, between the PRC and the US.
    • Flag of USA United States Response: The United States clarifies that the FBI has cleared the sharing of scientific information between China and the US for these two missions, as well as the Harmony Station project.
    • Chinese Response: China appreciates the clarification, and we fully look forward to Sino-American cooperation in the area of space and space diplomacy.
  • International Space Station 2: Considering the construction of a new ISS for public research to be long overdue, the US proposes for the construction of the ISS2, with all partners from the previous ISS project except Russia, including NASA, the ESA, CSA, and JAXA invited to participate. Additionally, the Australian Space Agency and the New Zealand Space Agency are invited to participate as well. If approved, construction will begin by immediately and the main structure will be completed by 2060. Operating on a modular design, the ISS2 can have its modules detached and new modules may be attached, allowing the station to grow and evolve over time as needs change. By opting for a modular design that allows for gradual growth and expansion, the ISS2 will thus be able to keep upfront and annual costs low as the station expands slowly over time. The main structure will be dramatically larger than the original ISS, allowing for significantly more scientific research to be conducted. Moreover, a planned core component of the ISS2 will be a basic spaceport module, which can be added to the ISS2 if and when such a module becomes neccesary. Due to the focus on manned spaceflights to Mars and the Moon, and unmanned probes to elsewhere in the solar system, the construction of an ISS2 is not at the top of the priority list for America, but with many contributing international partners, it could nonetheless turn out to be of great benefit, especially as all partner nations except America do not currently operate their own space station. [Mod Responses]
    • Mod Response: Approved, sounds good.
  • United Space Station: America's only commercial space station, the United Space Station, launched in 2048, is owned and operated by the United Space Station Corporation (USSC), a company jointly owned by a large number of space industry corporations including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, SpaceX, Britain's Virgin Galactic, and a large number of smaller space industry firms. The USS is divided into two parts, the United Space Laboratory (USL) and the General Activities Division (GAD). The USL is operated as a for profit laboratory-for-hire, which rents out its laboratory facilities to paying customers. Its customers include universities (both American and international), government research centres, and private companies (for whom research includes zero-G manufacturing and industry). The General Activities Division is home to a growing industry for space tourism, and is also home to the station's main docking area. The USSC has announced plans to expand the station significantly over the next decade to include more docking units and a dedicated spaceport and processing facility to service the growing off-world mining industry.
  • Independence Station: A new joint venture of space corporations, under the banner of the General Space Industries Company (GSIC), this time including Canadian and European partners as well, aims to construct a new space station under the laboratory-for-hire business model. What makes this endeavour different from the United Space Station is the firm's commitment to modular space station technology, allowing for future growth and modification of the station's purpose and abilities. The first module is expected to be launched in 2053. The leading firm in GSIC, responsible for the majority of the modular station technology, is the Caprock Company. Prometheus Industries is the primary firm responsible for the joint venture's rocketry and is a major competitor to SpaceX.
  • Starlink: SpaceX's Starlink global satellite internet constellation takes note of the competition from Tianwang, but isn't concerned.
  • Unmanned Space Missions: Ongoing NASA unmanned probe missions to the Sun and Venus continue as planned. A handful of probes are launched this year to the asteroid belt by various interested space corporations in anticipation of a joint venture attempt at asteroid mining in the coming years.
  • Voyager 3: The historic decision has been made to launch a Voyager 3 probe in 2053. It will fly past Uranus and Neptune as secondary observation missions, with its primary objective being to investigate the Kuiper Belt. The Voyager 3 mission is expected to have a similarly decades-long length of service as its predecessors.

2051[]


The year 2050 ends with a stunning achievement in the field of nanotechnology. A team of engineers from the University of Tokyo, in collaboration with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, announces that they have successfully built and launched a swarm of nanosatellites that can form a dynamic and adaptive network in orbit. The nanosatellites, dubbed NanoNet, are each the size of a grain of sand and can communicate and coordinate with each other using laser beams. The team claims that NanoNet can be used for applications such as space exploration, communication, surveillance, and defense.

The year 2051 begins with a radical innovation in the field of biomedicine. A team of scientists from the Stanford University, in collaboration with the Shenlong Biotech Co. Ltd., a Chinese company, announces that they have successfully developed and tested a gene therapy that can reverse aging in humans. The therapy, dubbed ReVive, is based on a synthetic virus that can deliver telomerase and other anti-aging genes to the cells and tissues of the body. The team claims that ReVive can be used for applications such as longevity, health, and rejuvenation.

Domestic Affairs:

  • Expanding Labor Force: China announces that its population has increased in 2051, reaching a total of 1.318 billion people. This is the third consecutive year of positive population growth. One of the main benefits of China’s population growth is the expansion of its labor force, which has grown by 50 million since 2020, reaching 750 million in 2051. China’s labor force is the largest and most productive in the world, accounting for over 20% of the global labor force and over 25% of the global GDP. China’s labor force is also more skilled and educated than ever, with more than 300 million people holding a college degree or above, and more than 200 million people working in high-tech sectors such as artificial intelligence, biotechnology, nanotechnology and aerospace. China’s labor force is also more diverse and inclusive than ever, with more women, ethnic minorities and immigrants participating in the economy and society. China’s labor force has been instrumental in driving China’s economic development and global competitiveness, as well as its social stability and national security. China’s labor force has increased China’s productivity and output, as well as its resilience to external shocks and demographic challenges. China’s labor force has also contributed to China’s innovation and creativity, as well as its cultural diversity and soft power. China’s labor force has also supported China’s military strength and deterrence, as well as its diplomatic influence and leadership. China’s labor force has faced many challenges and opportunities in its functioning and development. Some of the challenges are: adapting to the changing nature of work and skills; balancing work and family life; ensuring decent working conditions and social protection; addressing income inequality and social mobility; and enhancing labor rights and representation. Some of the opportunities are: leveraging digital technologies and automation; fostering lifelong learning and career development; promoting entrepreneurship and self-employment; creating green jobs and sustainable development; and strengthening international cooperation and exchange. China’s labor force has a vital role to play in shaping China’s future and destiny, as well as the future and destiny of the world. China’s labor force is not only a source of economic growth and social progress, but also a force for peace and harmony. China’s labor force is not only a pillar of national strength and pride, but also a bridge of global friendship and cooperation. China’s labor force is not only a reflection of China’s history and culture, but also a vision of China’s dreams and aspirations.
  • Taiyang Probes: China announces that its two solar probes, Taiyang-1 and Taiyang-2, have successfully completed their missions and have collected groundbreaking new data on the Sun and its effects on the Earth. The probes were launched in 2048 as part of China’s ambitious Solar Exploration Program, which aims to advance China’s scientific and technological capabilities in the field of heliophysics and space weather. Taiyang-1 was the first probe to orbit the Sun at a distance of only 0.1 astronomical units (AU), or 15 million kilometers, from its surface. The probe was equipped with a suite of instruments that measured the Sun’s magnetic field, plasma, radiation, and solar wind. Taiyang-1 also captured unprecedented high-resolution images of the Sun’s corona, flares, and coronal mass ejections. Taiyang-1 was able to withstand the extreme temperatures and pressures of the Sun’s vicinity, thanks to its innovative heat shield and cooling system. Taiyang-2 was the first probe to fly through the Sun’s polar regions, which are poorly understood and rarely observed. The probe was equipped with a suite of instruments that measured the Sun’s polar magnetic field, polar plumes, polar jets, and polar coronal holes. Taiyang-2 also captured unprecedented high-resolution images of the Sun’s poles, revealing new features and phenomena. Taiyang-2 was able to navigate the complex and dynamic environment of the Sun’s poles, thanks to its advanced propulsion and guidance system. The data collected by Taiyang-1 and Taiyang-2 have provided new insights into the Sun’s structure, dynamics, and activity, as well as its influence on the Earth’s magnetosphere, ionosphere, atmosphere, and climate. The data have also improved China’s ability to forecast and mitigate the impacts of solar storms, which can pose serious threats to satellites, power grids, communications, navigation, and human health. The data have also contributed to China’s participation in international scientific collaborations and exchanges on solar physics and space weather. The success of Taiyang-1 and Taiyang-2 has demonstrated China’s leadership and excellence in solar exploration and space science. The probes have also paved the way for China’s future solar missions, such as Taiyang-3, which will land on the Sun’s surface in 2055; Taiyang-4, which will sample the Sun’s corona in 2058; and Taiyang-5, which will fly into the Sun’s core in 2060. The probes have also inspired China’s young generation to pursue careers and studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
  • Moon Drilling: China announces that its moon base, Chang’e Station, has drilled a record level down into the lunar crust and has discovered a new material with remarkable properties. The base was established in 2045, as part of China’s Lunar Exploration Program, which aims to advance China’s scientific and technological capabilities in the field of lunar geology, resources, and environment. Chang’e Station has discovered a new material in the lunar crust, which has been named lunite. Lunite is a silicate mineral that contains traces of iron, titanium, and rare earth elements. Lunite has some unique properties that make it valuable for various applications. Lunite is highly magnetic, which can be used for data storage and transmission.

This proposed radical shift in government architecture is considered the most significant change in the country's political landscape since the establishment of the People's Republic in 1949. The first branch will be the Executive branch, maintaining the central leadership role of the President and Premier but with a more delineated set of responsibilities and powers. This branch will be chiefly responsible for enforcing laws and regulations, and overseeing the day-to-day operations of the government. The new structure will be designed to provide greater checks and balances on the Executive branch, and more clearly outline its duties and limitations. The second branch will be the Legislative branch, similar to the current National People's Congress, but with an enhanced role in law-making and parliamentary debates. The goal of this restructured branch is to improve the democratic process and encourage a diversity of voices within the legislative process, thereby enhancing the representation of citizens' interests at the national level. The third branch is the Judicial branch, a system that will oversee the nation's courts and legal systems. It will be tasked with interpreting the laws passed by the Legislative branch and will ensure the application of these laws is consistent across the country. This branch will also aim to increase the independence and professionalism of the judiciary. The fourth branch, the National Security branch, will be devoted to the defense and security of the nation. This branch will oversee the military, intelligence, and cybersecurity functions, working to protect China's sovereignty and maintain internal stability. The establishment of this branch will provide a clearer demarcation of defense responsibilities and enhance the country's security management. The fifth branch, the Evaluation and Accountability branch, will focus on maintaining the integrity of governmental operations across all sectors. This branch will monitor and assess the performance of the other six branches, ensuring accountability and transparency in their operations. The primary role of this branch is to institute a robust system of checks and balances within the government, addressing potential conflicts of interest and promoting ethical governance. The sixth branch, the Communication and Public Affairs branch, aims to enhance the government's relationship with the public. This branch will manage all aspects of government communication, both domestic and international, and will oversee public affairs, ensuring that citizens are informed and involved in the decision-making processes. This branch also pledges to facilitate a more open dialogue between the government and its citizens, prioritizing transparency and fostering a culture of participation. The seventh and final branch, the Strategic Planning and Development branch, will be tasked with the long-term vision and development strategy of the nation. It will operate across a wide range of sectors, setting strategic goals and overseeing their implementation. This branch is set to play a crucial role in the country's future, focusing on macro-level planning and guiding the direction of national development in an increasingly complex global landscape. With these modifications to the proposed structure, China is putting forth a governmental model that values accountability, public engagement, and strategic foresight. The upcoming constitutional referendum, allowing the Chinese people to vote on this significant change, underscores a desire for a more modern, responsive, and diversified governance system. The world watches as China embarks on this monumental transition, potentially ushering in a new era in its political evolution.

  • Space Enterprise Initiative: ZSIC has reached out to The Atlantic Resources Corporation (ARC), a similar US based megacorp that does space mining, to cooperate on a corporate international framework for space activity. ZSIC has sent a letter to the CEO of ARC, inviting him to a meeting in Shanghai to discuss the proposal. ZSIC has also published the letter on its website and social media platforms, making it public and transparent. ZSIC has proposed to ARC to jointly develop and adopt a corporate international framework for space activity, which would be a voluntary and non-binding set of principles and guidelines that would govern the conduct and cooperation of private actors in space. ZSIC has suggested to name the framework The Space Enterprise Initiative (SEI), which would reflect its vision and mission of promoting responsible and sustainable space exploration and exploitation for the benefit of humanity and the planet. ZSIC has explained to ARC the rationale and benefits of the SEI, which are: to fill the gap and complement the existing international law and regulation on space activity, which are mostly focused on state actors and public interests; to establish a common ground and understanding among private actors on space activity, which are diverse and competitive in their goals and methods; to enhance the transparency and accountability of private actors on space activity, which are often secretive and unregulated in their operations and impacts; to prevent and resolve any conflicts and disputes among private actors on space activity, which are potential and inevitable in the complex and dynamic space environment; and to foster cooperation and coordination among private actors on space activity, which are necessary and beneficial for their mutual success and survival. ZSIC has outlined to ARC the main principles and objectives of the SEI, which are: to respect the sovereignty and interests of all states; to uphold the principle of non-appropriation and common heritage of mankind; to ensure transparency and accountability of all actors; to prevent harmful interference and interference with other activities; to protect the environment and prevent contamination; to promote cooperation and coordination among all stakeholders; and to foster innovation and competitiveness. ZSIC has also indicated to ARC its willingness and flexibility to negotiate and compromise on the specific provisions and obligations of the SEI, which would cover various aspects of space activity, such as registration, information sharing, consent, safety measures, liability, compliance, rights, interests, dispute resolution, etc. ZSIC has also expressed its openness and readiness to invite and include other private actors in the SEI, such as other space mining companies, space transportation companies, space tourism companies, etc., as well as other relevant actors, such as governments, international organizations, civil society groups, etc. [Player Response]
    • Flag of USA United States Response: ARC notes that any agreement reached between ARC and ZSIC over the future of private space enterprise should involve as wide-ranging an array of parties as possible, not least because the United States, Europe, and the Commonwealth have very many space corporations as well. Moreover, it is felt that the support and agreement of the governments of the US and China should be achieved to ensure the long-term legitimacy of private space operations. As such, the US State Department along with ARC and numerous other US space companies proposes a World Space Enterprise Summit to be held next year, to be attended by major players in the space industry from around the world, as well as the respective foreign ministries and representatives of major nations and intergovernmental politico-economic organisations (eg. EU, AU, ASEAN). The Summit should result in a non-binding agreement on a comprehensive rules-based system for private exploitation of space. It is proposed that the Summit be organised and co-hosted by Chinese, US, and EU officials, with other major partners (such as the UK, Russia, and Japan) involved in organisation as well. [Player/Mod Response]
    • Chinese Response: ZSIC agrees on the expansion of the framework and dialogue to include other nations. On top of the US, EU, Commonwealth and the PRC, we would like to include the Russian Federation, Republic of India and the Federative Republic of Brazil, two of which are major space powers with many companies, Russia and India, and one, Brazil, which has been expanding quickly in both public and private space enterprise. In terms of the WSES (World Space Enterprise Summit) we would propose a five chair group, of the PRC, US, EU, Republic of India and Russian Federation, due to all of our nations/groups having already expanded into space. If the United States wishes to have a more equal and balanced four chair group, we would propose the Republic of India to take the fourth chair spot, seeing as relations have improved between our nations over the years. We would also raise another prospect, a military industrial wing of the WSES, called the World Space Enterprise Summit for Defense, or WSESD, to be chaired by the same four or five nations/groups. ZSIC, along with several other Chinese companies, provide a vast array of services to the Chinese military, both on the ground and in space. We assume that the US and India at least have similar aspirations or realization of such forces and projection. [Player Response]
    • Mod Response: All nations agree for the need of both a space and military cooperation protocol of sorts. The EU, Russia and India are all willing to work with one another, though the EU and Russia are at somewhat tension filled points over the decades.

Defence Affairs:

  • Space Force: [Secret] The Space Force has successfully constructed a satellite-killing platform capable of launching up to 8 satellite-killing missiles. The USSF plans to construct 5 more such platforms by 2055. [/Secret] The Space Force announces the development of the world's first space frigate as an experimental armed spacecraft. Production of the spacecraft is not a high priority due to the lack of a clear rationale for space frigates as mutual respect and cooperation in space is high and there are no space pirates. Nonetheless, operational readiness requires that the space force and its contactors are capable of assembling 5 frigates in the first year on short notice.
  • Marine Corps: [Secret] The Marine Corps assembles a third division of Marines Corps Forces (MARFOR), Marine Forces Space Command (MARFORSPA), contributing up to 45,000 personnel deployable under United States Space Command (USSPACECOM) in collaboration with the Space Force. At present, the lack of any serious security threat in space requiring ground forces and the prohibitive cost of sustaining humans off-world has meant that MARFORSPA is largely an expeditionary force, with almost all personnel stationed at various Space Force bases on Earth. 50 personnel, including both civilian Department of Defence [Secret] (mainly DARPA and DIA) [/Secret] employees and highly competent military personnel, are to be deployed to Artemis Base One to assist with NASA research and conduct research of their own for the DoD. 100 personnel, including both civilian and military personnel, are to be deployed to the Martian Research Colony over the next 5 years, again, for scientific, research and engineering reasons.

Space Affairs:

  • Martian Research Colony: Scientists at the MRC announce the successful development of an economically viable method for Martian agriculture, which includes the industrial cultivation of biomass from algae and fungi (a process that also recycles organic waste by feeding it to the algae and fungi) which is then used to fertilise purified Martian soil for agriculture. In cooperation with the Big Rock Company, SpaceX announces that the world's first delivery of asteroid-harvested water to Mars has been successfully achieved. Thus, the construction of large water storage facilities begins. They will be filled up by asteroid-delivered water and serve as a source of both agricultural irrigation and general water supplies as the MRC expands.
    • Martian Mining Project: A SpaceX subsidiary, IronX, expands its Martian mining operations to an industrial scale. Mining Mars for resources to deliver to Earth is in no way economically logical, as any resources available on Mars are far more abundant in the asteroid belt and far easier to mine on Earth. However, IronX's operations are to supply the MRC itself, and to supply a new SpaceX-USGov project: Mars City One.
  • Mars City One: SpaceX and the US government announce the establishment of Mars City One, what will one day become a fully fledged city on Mars. Its construction is largely robotically automated and supplied by onsite materials, keeping costs relative low. It is a primarily underground city dug into the side of the Valles Marineris. At the top of the cliff of the Valles Marineris is the Marineris Spaceport, constructed at the beginning of the year. An industrial elevator connects the spaceport with the main construction site of Mars City One. Owing to the municipal nature of Mars City One, and the scale of the project, the US Government decides to appoint an official Martian Colonial Administrator to oversee all US private and public sector operations on Mars. The Administrator does not direct or control operations on Mars, serving only as a general governor and governmental oversight. The Administrator is also a NASA employee and is advised by an appointed Advisory Council, containing members including lawyers, economists, engineers, scientists and representatives of corporations and employees on Mars.
  • Artemis Program:
    • Artemis Base One: Scientists on the Moon immediately adjust their processes to take advantage of the agricultural breakthroughs of their Martian counterparts.

Our HQ-32 and HQ-39 missile defenses are placed closer to Beijing, our ZhiZhu Defense Network is activated (similar to A-235 system of Russia, special capital defense system, powered by highly advanced AI), our Dong Neng 5 missiles are ready, and two squads of J-20S and J-35S's are flown with drones, looking for suspicious activity and to prevent/intercept any potential missile launch. We are going to continue this posture until the NKPLA cannot access a weapon, conventional or nuclear, that could strike any area of China.
    • Mod Response: South Korea maintains a similar posture to China, almost declaring martial law in fact, however they decide not to. South Korea activates their L-SAM3 systems all around major cities, raises their alert level to DEFCON 3 and the ROKAF is fully alert.

    • US Political Realignment: The 2052 US presidential election is conducted with President Wong ineligible to run for a third term. In a political upset, Joseph Tripoli of the reformist Forward Party is elected as the next POTUS. Congressional elections result in the candidates either a member of or endorsed by the Forward Party clinching 30% of seats in the House of Representatives, its largest share ever. A number of high-profile defections occur after the elections. The Forward Party reaches 174 members in the House, and 45 senators. The Union Party, a localist conservative party, reaches 44 members in the House and 5 senators. They form a political alliance with the largely urban middle class conservative Republican Party, imaginatively called The Coalition, with 180 seats in the House and 40 senators between them. The progressive Democratic Party wins 15 seats in the Senate and 60 seats in the House. President Tripoli aims to push through a series of major reforms when he becomes president next year. California, Texas, Virginia and Illinois, among 10 states now governed by Forward governors, and dozens of major cities across the country, begin implementing state-level and municipal-level reforms in keeping with Forward Party goals. These include ranked-choice preferential voting and greater emphasis on e-government service provision.

  • Government: Federal semi-presidential republic under an authoritarian dictatorship
  • Leader: President Min Yung-Han
  • Capital City: New Pyongyang
  • Population: 25.97 million
  • Economy: Economy is stable. Citizens are happy and satisfied with the administration.
  • Number of Military Personnel: 5 million

Internal Affairs:

  • Launching of the Yung-Han 1 Communication Satellite: On February 12, the People's Space Agency (PSA) announced massive progress on the North Korean Space Program. According to Min Kung-Han of the PSA, the Yung-Han 1 Communication Satellite has finished its development following its construction by the PSA with the assistance of the Chinese on 2051 and will begin launch on July 5 after a few tests and readjustments. On July 5, the Yung-Han was launched from the Chongpyong Space Launching Station while being viewed by thousands of North Koreans and the international community. The launching of the satellite was an instant success, bringing the nation of North Korea into the international space community leading to President Min Yung-Han to proclaim a national holiday. With the Yung-Han, the nation has the complete and stable accessibility to the worldwide net, bringing North Korea ever closer to the new age of capitalism and democracy with new ideas or concepts being introduced into the population of North Koreans.
  • The National Populist Party of North Korea: On October 5, a rising star in the political world of North Korea named Jeom Kwang announces the formation of a third political party in the nation, rivaling the still-powerful Democratic Party and the rising the Socialist Party. The National Populist Party aims to make North Korea into a major superpower in not only Asia but the entire world using the ideas of ultrantionalism, militarism, New Colonialism, and totalitarianism. The National People's Intelligence Agency (NPIA) is assigned to keep a closer look on the new party as it could be a possible threat to the democracy and stability of the nation.
  • Supreme Court of North Korea: As part of the wide-scale reformation program of the government by President Yung-Han, the courts of North Korea were reformed in similarity with the US courts to show the international community that the nation of North Korea is truly transitioning to a democratic peaceful state. As part of the reformation, the Supreme Court of North Korea was established to be the highest court of the nation and is separate from the control of the government. Technically, the Supreme Court is a stop gap measure in preventing a possible dictatorship or corrupt government from getting into power while also presiding over cases that threaten and can greatly affect the country.
  • Congress of North Korea: Along with the Supreme Court, the People's Supreme Assembly of North Korea was dismantled and reformed into the National Congress. The members of the Congress can be elected by the population of the state that they are in and have the roles similar to the Congress members of the United States.
  • Project Nature: In order to produce better crops and food sources, the Ministry of Agriculture with the Ministry of Resource form Project Nature. Using newly created technology and research made by the Ministry of Science and Technology with the support of our allies in the People's Republic of China, the government aims to generate large-numbers of healthy natural resources such as vegetables and meat that can withstand extreme weather or even nuclear radiation.
  • Reformed Armament and Reorganization Program: With General Seob Chin-Mae becoming the new head of the Ministry of Defense, a massive rearmament program begins in the North Korean Armed Forces along with the reorganization of the military leadership without the complete permission of the President, giving evidence of a worrying division between the government and the military. By the end of year, the number of military vehicles and weaponry increase with rumors of an eventual military service of ages 18 to 20 being implemented next year.
  • Olympus Program: [SECRET] On November 18, the head director of the National Defense Force and a few high-level employees of the National People's Intelligence Agency met with the President along with a few loyal government officials to discuss a possible investigation on a top secret weapons program called the Olympus Program. According to the NPIA and the NDF, a secret military faction within the Chinese and Russian militaries who are discontented with the reformations currently happening within their respective countries are conducting human experiments using technology that are currently not under the possession of the North Korean government. Intelligence suggests that a few members of the government including the Vice President and the head of Ministry of Defense are the main culprits of this new weapon program leading some especially the President himself to determine whether the nation is just destined to destroy itself. [SECRET]
  • Peninsula Underground Train Project: On April 12, the Ministry of Architecture and Ministry of Transportation joined then announced an incoming project financed by the Rising Sun Corporation in constructing an underground railroads beneath the peninsula that can allow both North and South Koreans to go around the peninsula using newly purchased KTX trains from Japan. Construction has already began and will be estimated to finish within a few years.
  • Bunkers of New Korea Project: On March 10, the Ministry of Defense with the Ministry of Architecture announced a new project in constructing multiple large-scale nuclear bunkers throughout North Korea as a protection in case of a nuclear conflict, natural disaster, or conventional warfare
  • Icarus Long-Range Intercontinental Missiles: As part of the rearmament of the North Korean military, a new type of long-range intercontinental missiles called the Icarus Missile was constructed by the Rising Sun Corporation to be supplied to the North Korean Armed Forces. The missiles have the ability to be launched from underground launching sites or naval forces and can hit targets as a far as New York or Sydney within a few minutes. A variant of the Icarus Missiles equipped with stealth and hypersonic technology are in the works but reports say that these weapons can be built by 2063.
  • The Red Flower Band: To show the conversion of North Korea to a capitalist democratic country, a new Korean boy band called the “Red Flowers” was formed by the Rising Sun Corporation. The Red Flowers soon become a sensational hit in North Korea with the band’s reputation slowly making its way towards the entertainment districts of South Korea.
  • K-Pop Sensation: Following the launch of the Yung-Han 1 Satellite, the new generation of North Koreans are exposed to the famous and addicting idea of K-pop from South Korea leading to a massive change in the entertainment sector in North Korean society.

External Affairs:

  • Reunification Talks with South Korea: Talks with South Korea still continue with no end in sight leading to a possible pull-out from the talks by North Korean ambassadors though President Min encouraged the continuation of the talks. The head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the head of the Ministry of the Public plead to not only the South Korean government but the international community to lend large support for a reunification of the two nations in the peninsula to finally end the division of the Korean people. [Player/Mod Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We express concern in a diplomatic statement, though we do sincerely believe both Korea's align in value and structure, we are concerned with the threat the NKPLA brings to both Korea's and the relative instability it seems North Korea still undergoes. We would propose a suspension of the talks until both sides can stabilize and reform further, and we would do all in our power to assist both Koreas in such needs.
    • MOD Response: South Korea's President is willing to extend talks slightly, however they wish to deal with the NKPLA threat, saying specifically "If we unify, the threat will infect our Southern nation as well, more so than if we remain seperate and pause talks, to reunify later." Still, Russia and China, along with India, have expressed their support for both Koreas and to reunify, so the international titans in terms of Asia back both.
    • Flag of USA USA Response: The US agrees with China's assessment on the continued threat of the NKPLA. Moreover, the US argues that it is neccesary for North Korea to undergo continued economic, social and political evolution, including the attainment of a similar level of economic prosperity, political freedom, and cultural integration with the South, so that upon unification, the two nations will fit neatly in with each other, and there will not be adjustment difficulties and large numbers of economic migrants to the South. The US strongly supports the path to eventual reunification, but asserts the importance of gradual integration over sudden reunification.
  • Proposal for the Unified Korean Intelligence Agency: To strengthen the relationship between the two nations and to garner enough public support for reunification, the National People's Intelligence Agency proposed to the North and South Korean governments along with the international community to form a unified intelligence agency of the both countries in the peninsula. This Unified Korean Intelligence Agency will be for the benefits of the two governments as a way of protection against potential threats within or outside the peninsula.[Player/Mod Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We will allow our intel sharing apparatus to extend to North Korea, and instead of merging both Korean intel agencies outright, we propose a trilateral defense agreement, called the Sino-Korean Defense Treaty, that would mandate something similar to Article V of NATO and Article IV of the ESA which both state, although slightly abridged, an attack against one is considered an attack against all. As part of our opening up and dehostilization as we call it, we have implemented similar defense agreements with many nations across the world, even a more voluntary one in BRICS+. We are willing to make it quadrilateral as well, to include the US.
    • MOD Response: South Korea echoes China's sentiment, a defense agreement would be more appropriate, especially with talks seeming to stall. They note that "We can both share our defense and intel information, without an outright merger. We still wish to keep certain aspects separate until ties further stabilize, however the direction is looking good."
    • Flag of USA USA Response: Building on China's proposal, the US proposes a Quadrilateral Security Agreement For The Korean Peninsula (QSAK) involving the cooperation of South Korea, North Korea, the United States and China over security matters on the Korean Peninsula, including a commitment to defend the peninsula in the event of present and future security threats. The obvious main present priority of QSAK would be the NKPLA threat. [Player/Mod Responses]
    • North Korean Flag North Korean Response: The Min administration accepts this proposal
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We would agree to sign this.
    • MOD Response: South Korea agrees to sign this as well.
  • Proposed 2054 North Korean - South Korean Military Training: Under the orders of the President, the Ministry of Defense proposed a joint military training exercises in Jeju Island between the North and South Korean military forces. These trainings would be participated by the North and South Korean forces while being overseen by the United Nations led by both the United States and the People's Republic of China. President Min hopes that this training exercises would be an advantage for reunification. [Player/Mod Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We agree to this, we would also be more than happy to oversee this, the first joint Korean exercise in decades. We assume the US will be participating as well, though we wait to hear.
    • MOD Response: South Korea's President happily agrees to this. The UN also looks forward to this, and feels the US and the PRC are the most appropriate overseers of the exercise.
    • Flag of USA USA Response: The US gladly agrees to participate and oversee joint exercises.
  • Rising Sun Global Marketing Program: The rising status of the North Korean company called Rising Sun can be clearly seen with many establishments being built throughout the country and sister companies being formed in unity with other corporations such as Apple or Samsung. According to the CEO of Rising Sun, the corporation would focus in AI technology in healthcare and in defense. [Mod Response]
    • MOD Response: Joint corps with limited technology transfer are taking place on a massive scale across the new capitalist Korea, primary investors and joint corps are Apple, Samsung and Huawei.

Conflicts:

  • Attempted Bombing of Liberty Monument: On April 10, North Korean troops raided and apprehended multiple suspects of the North Korean People’s Liberation Army, confiscating numerous explosive devices and blueprints along with plans for future terrorist attacks around the nation. President Min Yung-Han applauds the actions of the army in preventing the bombings in Pyongyang, vowing that under his administration, the state of North Korea would continue to be safe from all threats whether domestic or international.
  • Intelligence Reports on Other Bombings By the NKPLA: Following the failed bombings by the NKPLA on Liberty Monument, the President inquires from South Korea, United States, and China on whether they prevented their own terrorist attacks by the NKPLA on their own homelands. [Player/Mod Responses]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: General Secretary Li Wei writes a letter back, our defenses worked. Though we suspect some agents of sabotage may still lurk in the shadows, our show of force and patrols were able to stave off any attacks.
    • MOD Response: South Korea's President writes back, claiming though some very badly made missiles did get fired, they were almost all shot down. 50 people were killed in Seoul though, and in turn their military located the attackers and took them out, 60 of them killed and 27 captured.

Flag of USA United States of America

  • Government: Federal Democratic Presidential Republic
  • Leader: President Joseph Tripoli
  • Capital City: Washington, D.C.
  • Population: 405 million
  • Military Personnel: 1.6 million
  • Domestic Affairs:
    • Political Reforms: Newly-elected President Tripoli pushes through a number of key reforms to rationalise the federal government. The Department of Homeland Security is restructured and retitled the Department of Home Affairs. The Department of Education becomes the Department of Education, Skills & Employment. The Department of Transportation becomes the Department of Transport & Infrastructure. Additionally, the new Department of Social Services is created to be a centralised department responsible for the provision for the majority of social services programs, including child support, unemployment support, student support and emergency support payments. Many programs, payments and agencies are transferred from other departments to the DSS. Finally, the Department of Space is created, reflecting the increasing importance of that new frontier. It and its agencies (including NASA) act to coordinate and regulate public, private and other space endeavours.
    • Population Growth & Life Expectancy: Owing to advances in medical technology, average expected US life expectancy at birth is now 130 years. This has sparked somewhat of an ageing population crisis previously thought unlikely in the US. Thankfully however, the same advances in medical technology have ensured that most people are expected to able to comfortably continue working well into their 90s. Having said that, most people are not there yet, as this is expected life expectancy at birth. Average life expectancy is closer to 100 for now. The retirement age has been raised to 75, though it is projected to be raised up to 90 by the year 2100. More proximate concerns include a population boom, the inversion of the population pyramid, food supplies, and the public pension system. The population pyramid is being resolved in a number of ways. First, the Department of Social Services has instantiated a number of key demographic support programs including the Child Support Subsidy. Second, the federal, state and local governments are coordinating to rollout community support schemes and gender-neutral parental leave laws to facilitate parenthood and reduce the difficulties associated with parenthood. Third, Congress has introduced new pro-family tax laws that make reduce the tax burden on married couples, though there has been some backlash on this over concerns of "strategic marriage"; these laws may yet be repealed.
    • Agriculture & Food: In response to the need for cheaper, closer, and simply more food to be supplied to ever growing urban centres, vertical agriculture has become ubiquitous. Supply chains are being shortened with apartments for people and "apartments" for food standing side-by-side in city centres. Not all food can be farmed vertically of course. Most staple foods like corn, rice, potatoes and wheat cannot be farmed in any way other than in soil. But America has plenty of that. It is mainly leafy vegetables and algae that are being farmed in tall greenhouse-buildings in cities. There has been a progressive shift in the diets of Americans as the economics of food change, with more consumption of algae and fungi based processed foods due to their relatively low cost and proximity to urban centres. Additionally, consumption of fish has risen dramatically since the introduction of the National Fisheries Act 2045, which incentivised large scale fish farming in the North Atlantic and the Pacific Northwest to combat rapidly depleting stocks of overfished wild fish. Finally, the consumption of insect-based protein, usually as part of processed foods such as sausage meat, burger meat, and minced meat substitutes, has become fairly popular, though it is still a minority taste. Farming of "high-risk insects" like locusts is strictly prohibited due to their potentially environmentally destructive consequences if they escape captivity. Other insect types farmed are farmed in facilities deep underground with failsafe mechanisms in place to exterminate their stock if breaches are detected. All farmed insects are genetically modified to be sterile, also for safety reasons.
    • National Superannuation Act: The National Superannuation Act is introduced to replace America's outdated pensions systems and to address to danger of generational population imbalance (where there are insufficient numbers of young taxpayers and too many old pensioners). Under the new superannuation scheme, both private and public pensions are replaced (though not prohibited as supplementary schemes) with superannuation schemes. Under superannuation, income-earners pay into mandatory superannuation accounts run by a non-profit superannuation firm/fund of their choice, which then invests the funds into various different investments. Under this scheme, each generation pays for itself through savings/investments, rather than relying on younger generations to pay for the older generations of their time through intergenerational redistribution. The superannuation scheme has the additional effect of significantly increasing the national savings/investment rate, resulting in a boom in economic activity as the supply of credit rises.
    • Energy: Researchers with General Atomics and a number of universities and public research labs jointly announce a successful Helium-3 nuclear fusion experiment that produced more energy than was put in to the process for a sustained period of time. They predict commercially viable He-3 nuclear fusion by 2060 [Mod Response]. However, they also point out that it is unlikely that the technology would be in any way shape of form cheaper than the far more mature technology of nuclear fission. Decades more research would be required to make fusion cheaper than fission.
      • MOD Response: It will likely come before, by 2059, and the energy differential will be smaller than previously thought, making it a possible viable alternative to nuclear fission.

  • Defence Affairs:
  • Space Affairs:
    • Mars City One: The first wave of immigration to Mars City One begins, with 121 people with vital occupations moving to the colony. All are employees of either NASA, SpaceX, or other contractors. Day-to-day governance of the colony is shared between the NASA-SpaceX Administration and the Mars City One Residents' Association. The establishment of agricultural facilities in the colony reduces the costs associated with living there, allowing for a fair bit of food self-sustainability. To supply the growing colony, a pipeline is under construction to a pocket of frozen water discovered in the Valles Marineris, where a small water processing facility is under construction.
  • Asteroid Mining: The American asteroid mining industry expands further, with up to 5 asteroids being actively mined by various companies at present, and the Ceres asteroid processing facility under construction with government financial support.

  • National Intelligence Directorate: In a significant move towards strengthening national security and intelligence capabilities, the citizens of China have participated in a momentous bureaucratic restructuring through a referendum, resulting in the establishment of the "National Intelligence Directorate" (NID). This new intelligence apparatus replaces the outdated Ministry of State Security, symbolizing China's commitment to adapt to changing global dynamics and enhance its ability to safeguard the nation's interests. The referendum, known as the "Intelligence Reform Initiative," saw citizens from all walks of life actively engaging in the democratic process, exercising their rights to shape the future of national security. Extensive public campaigns, deliberative forums, and informed discussions provided citizens with the necessary information to make informed decisions about the restructuring of the intelligence apparatus. The National Intelligence Directorate, operating within the framework of a multiparty democratic state, exemplifies China's commitment to transparency, effective governance, and the protection of citizens' rights. With a renewed focus on modern intelligence practices, the NID is tasked with the collection, analysis, and dissemination of vital intelligence to safeguard China's sovereignty and protect against emerging threats. Under the restructured bureaucratic system, specialized departments within the NID are established to address key areas such as cybersecurity, counterintelligence, counterterrorism, and data analysis. These departments work in harmony, employing state-of-the-art technologies and intelligence methodologies to enhance national security measures. The implementation of the National Intelligence Directorate necessitates comprehensive legislative reforms to define its mandate, powers, and oversight mechanisms. Strong emphasis is placed on robust checks and balances to ensure accountability and safeguard civil liberties. Independent oversight bodies, composed of representatives from diverse political parties, legal experts, and civil society organizations, are tasked with monitoring the activities of the NID and safeguarding the rights of citizens. Bureaucratic structures within the NID are designed to facilitate effective decision-making, coordination, and information sharing. Hierarchical departments, cross-functional teams, and specialized units ensure efficient intelligence operations, while adherence to stringent protocols and ethical guidelines remains a fundamental principle. The establishment of the National Intelligence Directorate within the bureaucratic framework of China underscores the nation's commitment to maintaining a strong intelligence infrastructure. Its structure ensures the optimal allocation of resources, the cultivation of expertise, and effective collaboration with international partners to address evolving security challenges. As part of the bureaucratic transition, comprehensive training programs and professional development initiatives are implemented to equip NID personnel with the necessary skills and knowledge to perform their duties diligently and ethically. Continuous evaluation and professional accreditation mechanisms further enhance the competence and integrity of intelligence professionals within the NID. The establishment of the National Intelligence Directorate through the democratic referendum signifies China's dedication to a robust and responsive intelligence apparatus. By aligning bureaucratic structures with the nation's democratic principles, China ensures effective national security measures while upholding the values of transparency, accountability, and protection of civil liberties. The NID becomes a symbol of China's commitment to effective governance, enabling the nation to navigate complex security challenges in an ever-changing world.

However, the Socialist Party failed to garner enough seats in Congress. Meanwhile, the National Populist Party has chosen Hyeong Myung-Ki as the nominee for the party and the pre-dominantly ultranationalist party is able to rival the seats of Congress against the Democratic Party.
  • Victory of the Hyeong Myung-Ki: On April 20 2054, Hyeong Myung-Ki won the 2054 presidential elections, giving the NPP absolute rule over North Korea, leading to concerns and worries of a new dictatorial regime. However, President Hyeong assured the nation and the international community that he will continue the efforts of his predecessor in transitioning the country into a democratic free nation and reunifying with South Korea.

This new creation gains support and applause from the scientific international community with the Ministry of Agriculture promising to continue their efforts in creating the perfect resources for humanity.
  • Economic Golden Age: North Korea experiences a massive economic boom with poverty lowering by 60% and the number of jobs being created in a exponential rate. This so called "North Korean Golden Age" can be compared to the economic boom of the United States during the early 21st Century and of the People's Republic of China during the middle of the century. Most North Koreans believe that the economic policies and reforms by the newly elected president, Hyeong Myung-Ki, is the reason for the beginning of North Korea as an economic superpower in Asia and possibly the world.
  • Energy Golden Age: On May 29, President Hyeong Myung-Ki announces that North Korea is using 100% renewable environmental-friendly energy from the numerous dams, windmills, and solar panels that were built around the nation following the victory of the 2049 revolution with all of the country being powered constantly and with no electrical disruption.

Project Atlantis is formed and headed by several high-ranking members in the military along with those in APEX with the goal of strengthening and advancing the North Korean navy through the building of advanced naval warships such as frigates, cruisers, aircraft carriers, and submarines. Other than that, the Ministry of Defense is planning to construct the very first submarine aircraft carrier capable of transporting attack aircraft or a large number of troops to long distances with the assistance of the APEX corporation and perhaps the Chinese of the US. [Player/Mod Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We are willing to help construct an aircraft carrier, in fact we are willing to sell our aging and almost decommisioned Type 003A carrier, we only use it for training operations at this point. We primarily use Type 003B and C carrier types for conventional powered carriers, in general we use nuclear carriers, having over a dozen currently operational. We would be willing to help build a submersible aircraft carrier as well.
    • MOD Response: If North Korea decides to construct an aircraft carrier on their own, it may take up to 15 years. They will likely have to purchase one from the US or China, possibly Russia with their newest fleet of nuclear carriers. The submersible carrier would remain an idea, it cannot be logistically built unless China and the US assist in a major way.
  • Project Rome: On September 24, the Ministry of Tourism and Ministry of Architecture announces the construction of a new major city in Jeju Island that is so advanced and almost uses Artificial Intelligence in everyday life with the aid of the APEX corporation but the Hyeong administration hopes for more assistance from the People's Republic of China, the United States, and the European Union, assuring them that their nations could economically benefit from Project Rome. [Player/Mod Response]
    • MOD Response: You must first request permission from South Korea to build this city, since they control the island.
    • North-korea-flag North Korean Response: We ask permission for South Korea for their support in constructing the city with President Hyeong Myung-Ki saying that a joint construction of a new advanced "futuristic" city by the North and South would show great progress for the reunification between the two nations in the peninsula while also economically benefiting the South Korean nation. [Mod Response]
    • MOD Response: South Korea agrees, however they will increase military presence on the island just in case. The city will be governed by both North Korea and South Korea.
  • APEX Corporation: On February 22, a sister company of Rising Sun Corporation is formed under the leadership of engineer and ex-military general, Wang Daeshim, to act as the weapon manufacturer and private military group for Rising Sun while also acting as its own entity in the North Korean business. Rapidly, APEX turned itself to the major weapons supplier and eventually as the major source for recruits for the military sector of North Korea. It is widely believed that APEX may overtake the Rising Sun Corporation as the largest company in North Korea and may extend into the international community as a threat to other companies such as Apple, Google, and Facebook. New and dangerous weapon technology built by APEX is continuously being first sold to the North Korean Armed Forces in large numbers with the Juggernaut Armored Suit being the most number military weapon in the company being bought by the North Koreans.

President Hyeong Myung-Ki applauds the successful military trainings and expresses his hopes in live TV for the good progress of Korean reunification.
  • APEX Mercenary Corps: [SECRET] The invasion of Venezuela on Guyana has given the North Korean Armed Forces, an excellent opportunity to test their combat skills and handling of APEX military technology in the battlefield against the Venezuelan and Bolivarian forces. However, to prevent international condemnation on North Korean intervention overseas and the connection of "illegal" military training, the APEX Mercenary Corps was formed under a joint leadership of APEX and North Korean leaders to act as a private military force that act in the interests for both North Korea and the APEX corporation. On June 22, APEX Mercenaries land in Bolivaria and began multiple massive attacks on military installations under covert disguise while North Korean intelligence disrupt and warp the communication around the nation, to Venezuela, and to the international community in order to divert suspicion of North Korean involvement. [SECRET] [Mod Response]
    • MOD Response: Due to North Korea's limited ability to undertake power projection across such a distance, they will likely have to join forces with another nation that has such capabilities. Their options are limited, only the Americans, Chinese, Russians, Japanese, Indians, British, Turkish, Saudi Arabians, South Koreans and French have the ability to power project in a limited capacity, with China, India, the US and Russia having actual joint bases in the area. The result of the first wave, though limited, is an overwhelming Venezualan victory, equipped with advanced Chinese and Russian hardware.
    • North Korean Flag North Korean Response: The embarrassing failure of the covert North Korean attacks against Bolivaria and Venezuela forces the APEX Mercenary Corps to look to its allies and other nations for help in its efforts against the South Americans. We inform our Chinese, Russian, or even our Japanese allies for their support through material and support by allowing us to use multiple of their troop transports and possibly even one of their older aircraft carriers. President Hyeong Myung-Ki also reaches to the nation of Saudi Arabia for their help with promises of the Arabian monarchy on having access to Rising Sun Oil Drilling sites in the Pacific. [Player/Mod Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: [SECRET] We quitely inform the North Koreans of our current planned operation, now titled the Joint Strike Force to Liberate Guyana, that we have proposed with the US. If we do not get cooperation with the US, we will use our PMCs to strike them, North Korea is more than welcome to join. We will use civilian transport ships along with a load of cargo, as using aircraft carriers outright would alert the enemy. Luckily, our law requires all civilian ships to uphold military standards, so we can use any type. [SECRET]
    • MOD Response: Russia refuses, they are still a hardline ally of Venezuala and were one of the first to recognize the new Bolivaria. Japan claims they will not directly intervene but will allow their PMCs, flying under a North Korean flag, to assist. Saudi Arabia takes an allied position with Bolivaria, as they are both members of OPEC.
    • North-korea-flagNorth Korean Response: [SECRET] Movement of troops, weapons, and military equipment from the APEX Mercenary Corps using disguised civilian transport ships and storage container ships to Bolivaria begin but attacks against Bolivarian forces will not begin until next year to allow APEX mercenaries to properly prepare and train for the eventual invasion of Bolivaria. However, the government of President Hyeong Myung-Ki seeks to not only liberate Guyana but to also extend the influence and control of the North Korean nation to South America through the construction of military installations around Guyana by the end of next year. Meanwhile, APEX wishes to use the invasion of Guyana as an opportunity to test their new advanced weaponry and troops against enemy combatants. [SECRET] [Mod Response]
    • MOD Response: This is expected to work. Military construction will likely have to be undertaken with permission from the host nation as well, but with enough diplomatic maneuvering it will work.
  • Rising Sun Oil Drilling and Mining Services: On August 22, the Rising Sun finishes the construction of several oil drilling sites around the Pacific Ocean thanks to the efforts of the valiant workers of the North Korean Ministry of Architecture, Ministry of Resource, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Rising Sun Corporation, the APEX corporation, and other international companies working for or hired by Rising Sun. With these newly constructed oil drilling sites, North Korea has the ability to gain large amounts of oil, sell them in high prices, and possibly allow the nation to become a superpower in East Asia.

"In the face of persistent rumors linking me to former President Li Wei, I stand before the nation today to firmly disavow these baseless claims and provide unequivocal proof of my lineage and independence. As the current President of China, I believe in the importance of transparency, truth, and the integrity of our democratic system. First and foremost, I want to clarify that I have no familial relation to former President Li Wei.

To address these claims, I have conducted an extensive investigation into my ancestry, seeking the guidance of expert genealogists and utilizing advanced DNA testing. The results of these investigations confirm beyond any doubt that there is no direct familial connection between former President Li Wei and myself. The evidence, including comprehensive family records and genetic analysis, has been independently verified by reputable institutions, ensuring the highest level of accuracy and credibility. I understand the importance of maintaining public trust, and that is why I am committed to providing full transparency regarding my family background. My parents, grandparents, and other immediate relatives have been subjected to rigorous scrutiny, and their identities and histories have been thoroughly documented. These records are available for public scrutiny, should any further clarification be required. I want to emphasize that my ascent to the presidency is the result of merit and the trust placed in me by the Chinese people. I have dedicated my life to public service, working tirelessly to serve the best interests of our nation and its citizens. My qualifications, achievements, and commitment to democratic principles are the foundation upon which my leadership is built. Furthermore, I urge the media and the public to exercise caution and responsibility when dealing with rumors and unfounded claims. As a democratic society, we must prioritize the dissemination of accurate information and the preservation of the truth. Let us not allow baseless rumors to overshadow the important issues and challenges we face as a nation. I remain fully committed to transparency and accountability throughout my presidency. I will continue to uphold the highest standards of integrity and ethical conduct, ensuring that the trust of the people is upheld in all my actions and decisions. I encourage open dialogue, constructive criticism, and robust debate as we collectively work towards a brighter future for China. In light of the evidence presented, I call upon all individuals perpetuating these false rumors to cease their activities and respect the truth. Let us focus our attention on the pressing issues that require our united efforts, such as economic development, social welfare, and international cooperation. I want to express my gratitude to the Chinese people for their unwavering support and trust in my leadership. I am humbled by the opportunity to serve as your President and will continue to work tirelessly to advance our nation's interests and uphold the democratic principles that define us. Let us move forward with unity, resilience, and a renewed commitment to the progress and prosperity of China. Together, we will overcome any challenges that come our way and build a future that reflects the aspirations and dreams of every Chinese citizen." These rumors were primarily the result of some rogue operators in the former President's reelection campaign, and did pose some challenge to the new President. However, his youth and experience in business allowed him to overcome the rumors and ascend to the Presidency.

We request this letter be kept confidential, it reads "We write to you in the spirit of cooperation and shared commitment to regional stability and the principles of sovereignty and self-determination. Recent developments in the formation of the Bolivarian Nation, resulting from the annexation of Guyana by Venezuela, have raised concerns and challenges that demand our collective attention. The Chinese government acknowledges the sensitivity of this matter and affirms that we have actively engaged with Venezuelan authorities, urging them to reconsider their actions and seek a peaceful resolution to the situation. We have advocated for dialogue, diplomacy, and adherence to international law, stressing the importance of respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of neighboring nations. Regrettably, our efforts to persuade the Venezuelan government to abandon the annexation of Guyana have been met with resistance and disregard for diplomatic avenues. Given the gravity of the situation and the potential repercussions for regional stability, we understand the United States' concerns and the need for a decisive response. In light of these circumstances, we wish to express our support for any actions undertaken by the United States to restore the independence of Guyana and ensure the preservation of its sovereignty. We recognize the United States' commitment to upholding democratic values, promoting regional stability, and safeguarding the rights of nations to determine their own destiny. Our intelligence assessments indicate that a military operation conducted by the United States, in coordination with regional partners, could provide an opportunity to restore Guyana's independence and protect its people from further annexation attempts. We stand ready to provide any necessary intelligence, logistical support, or cooperation required to facilitate a successful operation. However, we strongly emphasize the need for careful planning, international consensus, and consideration of potential ramifications. It is imperative that the operation is conducted with precision, proportionality, and a clear focus on the restoration of Guyana's independence, ensuring the safety of its people, and avoiding unnecessary harm to the region. We propose establishing a joint working group to further discuss and coordinate strategies, intelligence sharing, and logistics related to this critical operation. This collaborative effort will strengthen our combined capabilities and increase the likelihood of a swift and successful resolution. As we embark on this challenging endeavor, we must remain committed to the principles of international law, human rights, and peaceful conflict resolution. The goal is not only to restore the independence of Guyana but also to foster a stable and prosperous region where nations can coexist peacefully, guided by the principles of sovereignty, self-determination, and respect for one another. We trust that this communication serves as a testament to our shared dedication to upholding the principles that underpin the international community. Together, we can address the pressing challenges before us and work towards a future where peace, stability, and cooperation prevail.

[NK Response]
    • North Korean Flag North Korean Response: North Korean intelligence believes that the North Korean People's Liberation Army threat has been solved with most of their terrorist cells and leaders being killed or captured by special forces following the discovery of the bombing plans of the NKPLA. President Hyeong Myung-Ki assures the PRC government that there is no need to worry about the NKPLA as the group is relatively confined to the mountains, unable to launch attacks on the local population and now act as a guerilla faction that can be handled by the local militia or the National Defense Force. However, he advises not only the Chinese but the international community to still take the NKPLA threat seriously.
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We thank the North Koreans for their quick response. We second their intel report, our People's Volunteer Forces Intel Assessment shows their threat is largely diminished, and seconds the fact that they are largely reduced in force capability and numbers. We will take the threat seriously as recommended, and stand willing to assist if needed.
  • Withdrawal from the DRK: In a decisive move towards regional stability and peace, President Zhang Wei has announced the full withdrawal of Chinese forces from the Democratic Republic of Korea (DRK). This strategic decision comes in response to the considerable progress made in resolving the threat posed by the NKPLA (North Korean People's Liberation Army), leading to a favorable security environment in the region. President Zhang Wei's declaration reflects China's commitment to fostering a peaceful and cooperative relationship with the DRK, as well as its dedication to maintaining regional stability. The withdrawal of Chinese forces signifies the confidence in the DRK's ability to handle its own security challenges and paves the way for the normalization of diplomatic relations and increased cooperation between the two nations. This decision has been made possible by the collective efforts of both countries in addressing the root causes of the NKPLA threat, including dialogue, diplomatic negotiations, and cooperative security measures. The successful containment and gradual dismantlement of the NKPLA has led to a significant improvement in the security situation, allowing for the reevaluation of China's military presence in the DRK. President Zhang Wei's announcement reaffirms China's commitment to non-interference and respect for the sovereignty of other nations. It underscores China's belief in peaceful resolution and diplomatic channels as the most effective means of addressing security challenges. The withdrawal of Chinese forces is a testament to China's confidence in the DRK's ability to ensure its own security and stability. As Chinese forces begin the withdrawal process, comprehensive measures will be implemented to ensure a smooth and orderly transition. Close coordination and cooperation between the Chinese and DRK governments will facilitate the seamless handover of responsibilities and the transfer of security-related functions to the DRK's own defense forces.

2055[]


In the start of 2055, chaos begins. In the midst of a harrowing civil war that has engulfed the nation, the President of Bolivaria, the son of the formerPresident Maduro, has instated draconian anti-protest laws in a desperate bid to assert control amidst the chaos and bloodshed. The once vibrant streets are now filled with the deafening sounds of gunfire and the cries of a nation torn apart. In the aftermath of a heinous attack that claimed the lives of 10 innocent individuals, the government's response has been one of ruthless repression, silencing any voices of dissent that dare to challenge their authority. These stringent laws serve as a chilling reminder of the brutal reality that grips the nation, as freedoms are crushed under the weight of oppression. Bolivaria's cities lie in ruins, its people trapped in a vicious cycle of violence and despair, while the President clings to power, willing to sacrifice civil liberties in a bid to maintain a tenuous grip on the crumbling nation. The once unified fabric of society has been torn asunder, replaced by a somber landscape haunted by the specter of uncertainty and despair.

In a surprising turn of events, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has successfully passed a resolution to deploy a multinational peacekeeping force, aimed at providing essential humanitarian aid and facilitating the partition of Guyana to restore its independence. The resolution garnered overwhelming support, with the United States, France, the United Kingdom, India, and China voting in favor of the mission, while Russia chose to abstain. Many had anticipated a Russian veto, given their historical stance on such matters, but their unexpected decision not to exercise their veto power allowed the resolution to pass. Speculation suggests that backchannel diplomacy between China and the United States played a pivotal role in preventing the veto. This UN peacekeeping force represents a glimmer of hope in the midst of turmoil, as it aims to alleviate the suffering of the people of Guyana and pave the way for a peaceful and prosperous future.

In a historic development, North Korea and South Korea, with the support of US, Chinese, and Russian negotiators, have agreed to establish the "Heukseok Zone," a ten-mile neutral area adjacent to the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that has been demined and deescalated, serving as a testing ground for a cooperative democracy model and the potential reunification of the Korean Peninsula. Over a five-year period, the Heukseok Zone will facilitate comprehensive evaluations of economic, social, and political aspects, with successful results potentially leading to the implementation of reunification starting in 2060, marking a significant stride towards lasting peace, unity, and prosperity for the Korean people.

In a momentous milestone, the global population has surpassed 10 billion people, according to the United Nations' latest projections. This remarkable achievement is attributed, in large part, to the successful repopulation efforts undertaken in Asia and Eastern Europe, where concerted initiatives have led to significant population growth.

  • Diplomatic Cable to the US, Regarding North Korea: [SECRET] "Esteemed colleagues, We write to you with a sense of urgency and shared concern regarding recent developments in North Korea. The Chinese government expresses deep concern over North Korea's hostile rhetoric directed towards our nations and the United States, which threatens regional stability and undermines the principles of peaceful coexistence. In light of these alarming developments, we propose a joint response to address the escalating situation. Firstly, we suggest the implementation of joint sanctions against North Korea, designed to convey a clear message that such aggressive rhetoric and actions will not be tolerated by the international community. We believe that coordinated economic measures will serve as a deterrent and promote a shift towards constructive dialogue. Furthermore, we propose a joint pullout of our assistance to the Korean reunification efforts in response to North Korea's behavior. By jointly suspending our support, we can send a strong signal to North Korea that its provocative actions carry consequences, while reaffirming our commitment to peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. We also feel compelled to disclose the existence of joint Sino-Korean PMC operations that have been taking place in Bolivaria. These operations were established with the mutual understanding of supporting disaster relief and aid efforts in the region. However, recent developments have raised concerns about the potential for North Korea to exploit this presence and establish a shadow government in Bolivaria. We urge for increased vigilance and closer coordination between our intelligence agencies to monitor and address any potential threats arising from North Korea's activities. It is important to note that we have agreed to a joint PMC force with North Korea, which was intended to foster cooperation and stability in the region. However, recent events, including the APEX Corporation's perceived power grabs within the Korean government, raise concerns about the direction the new administration is taking. The increasing militaristic actions and rhetoric by the new President, particularly regarding the Changmin Oil Drilling Station, are deeply troubling. We have received reports that North Korean forces have been instructed to prevent our nation and the United States from engaging in oil drilling activities, even resorting to the use of force if necessary. This escalation poses a significant threat to regional stability and must be addressed promptly. Given the gravity of the situation, we strongly believe that open and candid dialogue between our nations is crucial. We propose the establishment of a high-level diplomatic channel to discuss these pressing concerns and explore possible avenues for cooperation in resolving the current crisis. Through joint efforts, we can effectively address the challenges posed by North Korea and safeguard regional peace and stability. We eagerly await your response and remain committed to working closely with the United States to address this urgent matter. Our alliance is built on trust and shared interests, and together, we can overcome the challenges before us. Please treat this communication with the utmost confidentiality." [SECRET] [US Response]
    • Flag of USA US Response: [Secret] The United States shares China's concerns with the increased aggression coming from North Korea and concurs on temporarily halting support for Korean reunification and reduced economic cooperation, until the situation in the country is resolved. Furthermore, the United States notes its awareness of North Korea's surreptitious activities in Guyana and indicates that any new government of Guyana must be free of North Korean influence, freely-chosen by the people of Guyana, and firmly against corruption. In any case, the existing Bolivarian regime will be totally dismantled, regardless of North Korean infiltration. The US agrees to establishment of a high-level diplomatic channel to discuss these matters and working to resolve the North Korean situation. US intelligence agents in North Korea temporarily suspend cooperation with the nation's intelligence and security community until the situation stabilises. [/Secret] [Player Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: [SECRET] President Zhang Wei writes back, glad that the United States shares our concerns and glad we are both willing to take joint action. We are likely going to ease support slightly less compared to the United States, as we still play a major active role in the negotiations and as they are our border nation, so we still must have some obligatory negotiations, however we are going to scale it back heavily. We are glad to see the US intelligence apparatuses are detecting the changes in North Korean activities in Guyana, and concur any new government must be chosen by and for the Guyanese people, not North Korean, Chinese or Americans. We also share the position that despite the Korean interventionism, dismantling this new psuedo-regime in Guyana must be the highest priority. We decide to ramp up military activity, and perhaps establish a joint force against the Bolivarian military, with the US. Our training and tactics would work well likely with American training, as we have combined Russian, Chinese and Western training and tactics into our military. We also direct, with American permission, our NID (National Intelligence Directorate) to create the Sino-American Council on Foreign Affairs, to deal with both the Bolivarian and North Korea issues. We'd invite our top diplomatic experts and intelligence professionals to discuss with top American officials and agents on various topics of global interest. [SECRET] [US Response]

    • North-korea-flag North Korean Response: [SECRET] President Hyeong Myung-Ki secretly sends Gil Mun-Hee, ambassador to China, to inform the Chinese government that the government is currently in a crisis with the Armed Forces. The North Korean president saying that his current act of militarizing the Changmin Drill Station and the recent hostile actions taken in Bolivaria was all done due to a major threat of a military coup by a group of high-ranking generals. According to the president, the recent demilitarization in Heukseok Zone, the formation of the United Korean Peacekeeper Militia, and the eventual reunification with South Korea under a democratic government, angered and disgusted some ultranationalists and communist sympathizers in the military and APEX with trusted intelligence officers within the PIA advising that there is a likely chance of a rebellion being perpetuated by these "rebels" with the assistance of other unknown factions. President Hyeong promises that once the current conflict with the rebels within the military, APEX, and possibly the government have been solved then his administration would pull out military forces in the Changmin station and will lessen their hold in Bolivaria, now truly involving North Korea as peacekeeper such as China or the US instead of an aggressive invader.

    • North Korean Flag North Korea Response: [SECRET] On November 8, President Hyeong Myung-Ki enacts emergency plan 342, stating that multiple high-ranking members in the North Korean Armed Forces and members of the board in APEX have committed treason through the planning of a military coup against the democratic government. Throughout the whole week, the National Defense Force with the assistance of the United Korean Peacekeeper Militia storm the houses of suspected traitors to the state and sends them into high security prisons in undisclosed locations until they would stand trial by the Supreme Court. Suspects who attempted to flee or fight against loyalist members of the Hyeong Myung-Ki administration were killed by the NDF under strict orders not to let any leave the nation. Meanwhile, soldiers loyal to the suspects were imprisoned in their own barracks by trusted military police with all weapons being secured. In the end, President Hyeong Myung-Ki also declares temporary martial law to keep the peace and order as the so called "Second Great Purge" begins. [SECRET] [Player Response/Mod Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: [SECRET] We applaud these efforts, though we stress some of our measures have to remain in place, such as reduced cooperation on the Bolivarian operations, until we can be sure the issue is resolved once and for all. We order the People's Border Force to be on high alert, with garrisons near Dandong reporting high activity of members of the public trying to flee North Korea. As our policy has changed in recent years to allow asylum from North Korean citizens, by law we must detain them and allow them in, which our Border Force does. We encourage North Korea to take a more measured response, not with mass incarceration but with intelligent operations and planning, as we have experienced the fallout of mass incarceration, for example the Hong Kong Riots of 2047, when thousands fled the city overseas. We suggest North Korean martial law implementation should be swift and relatively harmless, and localized to the area where the operation takes place. [SECRET] [North Korean Response]
    • North-korea-flag North Korean Response: [SECRET] Pressure from the international community and various North Korean politicians, eventually forces President Hyeong Myung-Ki's government and military to gradually lessen their efforts in preventing the coup by imprisoning the conspirators in a way that follows the international human right laws and abolishing torture or executions by the National Defense Force. The North Korean congress allows the Hyeong Myung-Ki to ask from the International Criminal Court and the UN to oversee the trials of the coup conspirators in the nation with the support of the North Korean Supreme Court to show the world that North Korea is still foremost, a democratic and free nation for all. Meanwhile, in response to the recent border crisis, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, gives a statement to its fleeing citizens, saying that the ongoing reforms of Plan 345 will ensure that no innocent North Koreans would be harmed and that President Hyeong Myung-Ki will immediately end martial law along with Plan 345 once the conspirators have all been captured. [SECRET] [Player Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: [SECRET] We appreciate the lessening of undemocratic practices in the North Korean government and under their purge, and subsequently lessen certain sanctions on the North Korean companies APEX and Rising Sun, however the easing of sanctions is light, not a heavy reduction. We have gotten word that the ICC and the UN agreed to assist as well, so that works well. After the statement by North Korea's President, our Border Forces in Dandong note a reduction in the flight patterns, meaning less North Koreans are still leaving the country. Still, North Korean citizens that applied for asylum are temporarily accepted as said before, however when the situation is resolved we will send them back. We resume participation on the Korean Reunification issue as well. [SECRET]
    • MOD Response: North Korea's Second Great Purge largely roots out the terrorists and the members of the plot, however it also causes mass panic, with most civilians fearing North Korean leaders are reverting back to previous regime policy of rounding up, detaining and killing. The PRC in Dandong for example reports 54,000 border crossings in the week following the Purge, and South Korea reporting double that at 108,000 border crossings, causing a strain on North Korea that isn't too harsh, however it's still a major indicator.
  • Negotiating Table: In a momentous action, President Zhang Wei of China presented a proposal to initiate negotiations for the internationalization of the Changmin Oil Drilling Station, in response to recent developments and discussions at the United Nations. Recognizing the importance of addressing concerns over militarization and promoting peace and cooperation, our nation took the lead in seeking a diplomatic solution to this pressing issue. During the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), the United States motioned to condemn the militarization of the Changmin Oil Drilling Station under the 1959 Antarctic Treaty and the 2037 New Antarctic Treaty, which specifically prohibit any acts of militarization. With extensive diplomatic efforts and strategic collaboration between China and the United States, the motion received overwhelming support, with over 180 nations voting in favor, a few voting against, and a number of abstentions. Subsequently, the matter was brought before the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), where a binding resolution was sought. Despite the challenges encountered during negotiations, Russia ultimately vetoed the motion due to concerns related to North Korea's recent virtual speech at the United Nations. Recognizing the urgency of addressing the situation, China expressed its commitment to supporting a future U.S. motion and is open to considering coauthorship to effectively address the issue at hand. Responding to the escalating tensions, President Hyeong Myung-Ki of North Korea, in a virtual conference with the United Nations, assured the international community that demilitarization efforts had already commenced at the Changmin Oil Drilling Station. President Hyeong expressed his willingness to engage in discussions about sharing the oil station with the international community once internal conflicts were resolved and all individuals involved in the plot apprehended. China, as a responsible and influential member of the international community, recognizes the importance of pursuing diplomatic channels to address the concerns surrounding the Changmin Oil Drilling Station. By advocating for negotiations and internationalization, we aim to foster transparency, cooperation, and the peaceful resolution of conflicts. We remain committed to upholding the principles of demilitarization and finding a mutually beneficial solution that promotes stability and cooperation among nations. Moving forward, China will continue to actively engage in diplomatic efforts to encourage dialogue, trust-building, and cooperation among all relevant parties. We recognize the significance of multilateral engagement in finding a resolution that ensures the responsible use of the Changmin Oil Drilling Station's resources while preserving the pristine environment of Antarctica and respecting international law. Furthermore, we will work closely with the international community, including the United States and other concerned nations, to explore potential avenues for resolving the complex issues surrounding the Changmin Oil Drilling Station. Through constructive dialogue and negotiations, we aim to establish a framework that allows for equitable resource sharing, promotes sustainable development, and contributes to regional and global peace. China's commitment to international peace, cooperation, and responsible resource management remains unwavering. We will continue to exert our efforts to address concerns related to the militarization of the Changmin Oil Drilling Station and actively contribute to a peaceful and harmonious resolution that benefits all parties involved. By fostering dialogue and trust, we strive to create a more stable and prosperous future for the region and beyond.
  • Sailing near the Changmin Station: In a bold and strategic action, the People's Ground Forces Siberian Exchange Program troops embarked on a significant voyage, sailing within a legal range of the Changmin Oil Drilling Station aboard the Bing-3 nuclear powered icebreaker from our Great Wall Station VI. As one of the few nations equipped with polar class 1 icebreakers, we demonstrated our commitment to asserting our presence and ensuring the protection of our interests in the region. Throughout the operation, we strictly adhered to the guidelines outlined in both the Antarctic Treaty and the New Antarctic Treaty, respecting the principles of peaceful exploration and scientific cooperation. Equipped solely for self-defense purposes, our Bing-class icebreaker operated with due regard for international regulations and the preservation of the Antarctic environment. Our actions were in accordance with the principles of the treaties, showcasing our commitment to maintaining stability and promoting the responsible use of resources in the region.

Internal Affairs:

  • Military Draft Law of 2055: On January 25, the Congress of North Korea (CNK) passes the Military Draft Law of 2055 that sees all North Koreans in the different parts of society from rich to poor of the ages of 18 to 20 being sent to temporary military service over 3 years (except those with health concerns). According to Gam Kyu-Bong, representative of the Kangwon province and a supporter of the military draft, insisting that this law can better strengthen the military capabilities of North Korea but for defense matters while others including Representative Sun Chungho saying that this law may hamper reunification efforts and the ability of the nation to pull away from its communist militarized past.
  • International North Korean Defense Force: On February 22, the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announces the formation of an international military fighting force composed of troops from the North Korean special forces, APEX, and hired mercenaries with the goal of assisting allies and even the UN in maintaining order and law throughout the globe. However, the MOD says that the International North Korean Defense Force will only be deployed in the interests of the North Korean state and other allied nations or if a region in Asia is currently in chaos.
  • North Korean Highspeed Rail System: After 3 years of construction and planning, the North Korean Highspeed Rail System is finished with the NKHRS being built throughout the nation, allowing the transportation of over a hundred North Koreans in the state of the art luxury passenger trains within hours. President Hyeong Myung-Ki, on the day of the opening of the rail system, says that a new era of North Korean public transportation has begun. The NKHRS is an advanced train system similar to the South Koreans and Japanese ones but what makes the NKHRS unique to its other Asian counterparts is that the NKHRS is controlled by a artificial intelligence program made by the brilliant engineers and programmers of the Rising Sun corporation with the full support of the Ministry of Technology.
  • Project Survival: Under the strict supervision of the Ministry of Defense, hundreds of hired construction workers and architects begin to build multiple large-scale underground storage bunkers that can be able to store important resources from food to medicine for approximately 20 to 50 years as a survival measure for North Korea in an event of a nuclear war or disaster. Project Survival would be headed directly by the members of the Ministry of Defense with material and financial support from the Ministry of Architecture with the presumed date of finished construction of the bunkers being 2075.
  • Launching of the Hwangbo Lunar Rover: On August 29, the People's Space Agency launches the Hwangbo Lunar Rover to the moon, allowing North Korea to have the ability to step foot in the moon. With the Hwangbo Lunar Rover, opportunities for North Korean lunar exploration and possibly space travel begins to be discussed through the PSA. The success of the launch of the Hwangbo Lunar Rover leads to the government to divert a large portion of financial and military resources to the People's Space Agency.
  • Armed Protection Law: On October 31, Congress passes the Armed Protection Law, allowing every North Korean citizen of ages of 18 and above to purchase small or hunting firearms as a weapon for self-defense. However, the National Police Agency of North Korea (NPANK) and the Weapon's Purchasers Guild of North Korea (WPGNK) is ordered to keep restrictions to those who are purchasing firearms with strict orders to refuse or even arrest citizens that may harm themselves and others.
  • United Korean Peacekeeper Militia: Following the passing of the Military Draft Law, President Hyeong Myung-Ki with approval of Congress and without consulting the Ministry of Defense and the military announces the formation of an independent paramilitary group under the complete control of the head of state to act as a countermeasure in an event of a coup from the military or even from the National Defense Force. According to President Hyeong Myung-Ki, the United Korea Peacekeeper Militia was formed to better assist the nation in times of trouble but a large portion of the North Korean population expresses doubts on the formation of the UKPM as they fear that this new paramilitary force can be used by the sitting president for his or her own means. However, President Hyeong Myung-Ki assures the public that the UKPM has stern orders to not accept any instructions from the president nor the government if they believe that they are unable to continue their civil duties for the nation such as becoming a dictatorship. Meanwhile, both the National Defense Force and North Korean Armed Forces fear and are angry at the creation of the UKPM, believing that this new military force may take over military matters.
  • Golden Tree Economic Program: Due to the cutting of funds by China to the military operation in Bolivaria, President Hyeong Myung-Ki with the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Economy to form the Golden Tree Program to lessen North Korea's economic and even material dependence to any nation especially their ally, the People's Republic of China. The program sees multiple economic policies and laws being passed by Congress while many more are being studied by the MOF and MOE before being presented to the rest of Congress. The Rising Sun and APEX corporations lend their support to the economic program, due to them being pre-dominantly being led by North Koreans and believing that Golden Tree can positively affect the financial position of the companies.
  • The Changmin Oil Drilling Station: On December 18, the Changmin Oil Drilling Station, the presumed largest oil drilling station in the world, finished its construction thanks to the Ministry of Architecture, Ministry of Resource, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Rising Sun, and APEX. The Changmin station is located in the Antarctic waters, above what is believed to be a rich amount of oil which can greatly affect the economy and status of North Korea as a future superpower in Asia. President Hyeong Myung-Ki assigns the 18th and 20th North Korean Special Forces Ground Divison along with the 12th North Korean Aerial Squadron and the 5th North Korean Naval Division to act as security for the Changmin station. The APEX corporation also lends a few of their well-trained mercenaries to the station to assist the security of the oil drilling site. President Hyeong Myung-Ki orders the leadership of the Changmin to not allow any foreign nation whether it be China or US to enter the site with strict orders to shoot if they do.

External Affairs:

  • APEX establishments in Bolivaria: [SECRET] The chaos in Bolivaria following the civil war gives an excellent and multitude opportunities for the APEX corporation along with the Rising Sun to construct numerous establishments from healthcare centers to refugee camps to private security force with the illusion of acting as a helpful ally for the Bolivarian population. With the permission of the struggling Bolivarian government, these establishments are built with materials brought from North Korea and its allies such as China using disguised cargo ships or planes along with financial aid from the government and private corporations such as the Rising Sun. Meanwhile, the corruption and disorganization of the Bolivarian government allows the Myung-ki administration and APEX to secretly interfere and control the politics within the country for their own benefits while the suffering of the local population gives the North Koreans the ability to win their hearts and minds through material or financial support. The CEO of APEX, Wang Daeshim, with the full backing of North Korea begins to take control of the nation of Bolivaria from the shadows, replacing politicians, military leaders, and other high-ranking members of Bolivarian society with pro-North Korean and pro-APEX supporters. [SECRET] [Player/Mod Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: Due to our outright condemnation of Bolivaria, and the vote at the UN, we are free to operate more. However, as one of our top generals called it, we will adopt a two prong approach, both aiding North Korea and ourselves using PMCs and civilian equipment to invade and establish more control, as well as use our overwhelming military force outright. Seeing North Korea's seemingly annexation-like rhetoric though, we warn them that the objective is only to partition Guyana and guarantee it's independence, otherwise we will drop North Korea as a joint partner on this operation. Our intentions are two-fold, we intend to allow North Korea to train their military using our equipment and introduce them to the world stage once again or assist in such matters, we do not intend to provide North Korea a vehicle to annex both Venezuela and Guyana entirely though, and will actively resist any attempt to do so. For the time being, we simply warn, believing this to be the best course of action.
    • MOD Response: With the assistance of the PRC and their vessels, the establishments are set up. Bolivaria, believing the North Koreans to be a fellow socialistic ally, allow them to assist. The PRC, picking up on the continued shadow government style of North Korean control, backs off slightly in their aid, increasingly drying up valuable funding. Russia though, a staunch North Korean ally, may be able to help, if North Korea can deceive them. Despite much cooler relations going in to the second half of the 21st century, Russia still supports socialistic allies across the world, and still supports Venezuela, even to the point of being the second highest funder of the nation previously, just behind China. The military operations North Korea undertakes go well in the beginning, but things are starting to look troubling, as Chinese funding dries up, due to the shadow government like nature of North Korean help.
    • North-korea-flag North Korean Response: President Hyeong Myung-Ki orders the lessening of shadow control over the Bolivarian government to allow the Chinese to continue their funding of armed operations for the North Korean and APEX military forces but he maintains on his stance that his administration would still have semi-control over local and economic affairs over the country in a attempt to properly form a democratic friendly nation in South America.
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We thank North Korea for these actions, allowing resumed funding at previous levels. We intend to allow North Korea's proposed semi-control under our funding regime, however we would require both American and Chinese oversight and partnerships, sort of like the temporary military installed governments of Japan and West Germany by the allies after WW2. We would require the Americans to enter or be invited due to their experience in the region, where we have only really operated in for about 40 years, at least in terms of serious funding, versus their over a century of funding and military experience.
  • Operation Dome: [SECRET] Thanks to the support of China along with other nations, we use disguised cargo ships to transport PMC troops and disguised North Korean special forces equipped with the latest weaponry to Bolivaria to assist the rebellion in their fight against the government forces throughout the country while also still supporting the president along with the rest of his loyalist regime. Operation Dome sees a couple of hundred troops and a multitude of advance military equipment land in ports, disguised as foreign aid, being transported to nearby APEX establishments in preparation for the military campaign . These forces which will be designated as the "North Korean Foreign Legionnaires" are ordered to do whatever in their means to support the rebellion but to remain undercover as to not allow the Bolivarian government to connect the legionnaires to their seemingly North Korean ally. Other than aiding the rebels, the legionnaires are also instructed to give secret support to a faction within the rebellion that seems more friendly to North Korea and China. [SECRET] [Player/Mod Response]
    • MOD Response: The operation works almost perfectly, Chinese and semi-Japanese assistance being crucial. Forces are being trained at rapid pace, and with the combination of actual Chinese PMC troops and North Korean PMC troops, due to their combined training regiments, certain Bolivarian strongholds fall to the 'rebel' and 'non-government' forces. This marks another major turning point in the war.
  • North Korean "Help" to Bolivaria : As a nation who suffered two times from a civil war, North Korea takes the stage in the United Nations Assembly in New York on March 23, pleading for material and financial support to assist the population of Bolivarians who are currently affected by a conflict that leads to widespread poverty and violence, to the global community particularly the nations of US or Great Britain. Meanwhile, President Hyeong Myung-Ki meets with President Maduro virtually to discuss of an alliance between the nations of North Korea and Bolivaria for North Korean aid from medical to military assistance with hopes of a major foreign military base being constructed in Bolivaria within the year as a sort of defense against foreign and internal threats. [Mod/Player Response]
    • MOD Response: Bolivaria agrees, with President Guerra, son of the now dead President Maduro, turning largely to their new socialist ally, as second largest trading partner behind Russia now. The base is greenlit.
  • Heukseok Zone: President Hyeong Myung-Ki and his administration applaud the formation of the Heukseok Zone, proclaiming that Korean reunification is near and that peace will come in the peninsula for the Korean people. The president strongly instructs the military to not interfere in the process of reunification which includes the placing of military assets in the Heukseok Zone, fearing that any signs of military force that does not benefit or threatens their southern neighbor would danger the progress made by North Korea for reunification. This action is reacted with anger and displeasure by the North Korean military, particularly by nationalists and hardliners, who see President Hyeong Myung-Ki as a weaker leader than his predecessor. [Mod/Player Response]
    • MOD Response: South Korea, in turn, also instructs their military assets to vacate the zone, though to stay somewhat within the DMZ, as they expect North Korea to do the same, for self defense purposes. Due to this progressive move, many in South Korean media report polls showing reunification at an all time high in terms of sentiment, with 57 percent of South Koreans polled saying they would "welcome the move". South Korea also draws up formal plans for reunification, titled the "Greater Korea Reunification Action Plan" or GKRAP.

    • Guyanese Civil War: The people of America are in uproar over the Guyanese Civil War and the Venezuelan-installed president of so-called Bolivaria. In a momentous vote, Congress passes a resolution officially recognising Guyana to be the legitimate and only state and government of the aforementioned territory, and condemns "Bolivaria" as an rouge state and illegal Venezuelan regime occupying the territory of Guyana. The President announces the United States' decision to participate in the UN Peacekeeping force in both a humanitarian and military capacity. As part of the humanitarian mission, US forces and Peace Corps volunteers participate in the provision of humanitarian aid, construction of refugee and aid camps, and provide medical services to victims of the regime. In its military capacity, the US acts in conjunction with NATO allies to assist the people of Guyana and its organised pro-democracy rebel groups in the campaign against the Venezuelan regime. Assistance includes the provision of intelligence, military equipment, training, and on limited occasions, air support. US ground forces are deployed to protect training camps and serve as liaison officers, but direct front-line conflict with Bolivarian forces is not currently on the table except in self-defence. [Secret] The Defense Intelligence Agency takes a leading role in coordinating with local rebel groups while the CIA take point in infiltration and intelligence gathering efforts. The President has taken steps to ensure the CIA is not responsible for all aspects of the operations to prevent irresponsible acquisition of power by the "reputationally-challenged" agency. The DIA opens up a new Special Operations Office, closely modelled after the former British Special Operations Executive, with a primary responsibility of training civilian partisans and rebels in sabotage techniques. [Mod Response on Effectiveness of US Interventions] The US invites the United Kingdom to participate in these activities, recognising its historical experience and comparative success in these matters. [Mod Response] [/Secret]
      • MOD Response: Adding the US to the fight, along with China's announcement of direct military involvement earlier in the year, will cause Venezuela to likely lose the war this year or early next year. The Venezuelan Government is largely unable to combat the effectiveness of the British, Chinese and American information warfare and sabotage, with the Americans and the Chinese also training fighters near the frontlines. It's clear the American intervention is having a large effect, with Chinese and British pressure serving to likely capitulate the Venezuelan Gov soon.
    • Guyanese Civil War - Part 2: Congress votes to sanction a vast array of individuals and corporations connected to the Venezuelan and Bolivarian regime. Moreover, Congress approves a partial blockade on Guyana. The US Navy is deployed to the region and initiates random searches of all non-allied ships entering the prohibited zone, permitting only cargo primarily or irreplaceable for civilian use (eg. food, medicines, etc.) and completely prohibiting the transit of weapons (again, excluding approved ships delivering supplies to allies/rebel groups). The US asks its UN allies to respect the blockade.
    • Changmin Oil Drilling Station: The United States firmly condemns North Korea's decision to break longstanding international law and custom by drilling for oil in Antarctica. North Korea is further condemned for militarising said oil drilling platform. The US moves to sanction the Rising Sun Corporation and APEX, and urges its allies in Europe and Asia (including China) to do the same, to firmly indicate the world's shared commitment to an unmilitarised and unexploited Antarctica as a common heritage of all mankind [Mod/Player Responses]
    • North-korea-flag North Korean Response: President Hyeong Myung-Ki protests the sanction of the North Korean companies of APEX and the Rising Sun, stating that these organizations would be held accountable and would suffer the consequences of working with military conspirators in the courts of North Korea or most possibly, the Supreme Court. The North Korean leader stated that if the international community would sanction these companies without investigation or trial then they would send "hundreds of innocent North Koreans to poverty" and instead President Hyeong Myung-Ki encourages international cooperation in preventing these horrible situation from happening again without endangering the economy of a nation and the lives of North Korean people. [Mod/Player Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response (for both): We encourage our allies across all continents to specifically sanction aspects of the APEX and Rising Sun Corporations, as to not cut off North Korean citizens from vital wealth, as North Korea's government did legitimately point out, but to prevent the continued hostility and militarization that both companies seem to be encouraging. We also diplomatically send a message to North Korea, requesting that if they wish to, they can request funds for their economy, used in the right manner, under many of our programs, the ESA Interbank, the New Development Bank, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, or from our domestic banks, such as the SinoGlobal Program, the Shenzhen Prosperity Union's Financing Agreement, or the People's Bank of China's External Sharing Reserves, and more. We encourage other institutions which we are part of to offer their assistance, such as the IMF and World Bank, if they can provide a substantial loan.
    • MOD Response (for both): Most allies of the United States and China decide to sanction the companies, though a clear divide in the method of sanctions exist, with US allies in Europe mostly tending to sanction broader areas of the company, whereas Chinese allies are sanctioning the more militarily connected areas of the companies, such as certain departments and divisions. Either way, both nations and their allies seem to agree that the companies need to be restricted in their ability to operate, and they are largely effective, with APEX and Rising Sun seeing little to no imports or ability to do international business.
  • The US introduces motions in both the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council to condemn the Changmin Oil Drilling Station and the militarisation of Antarctica. The UNSC resolution explicitly requires North Korea to remove all military personnel from Antarctica within 2 months and to dismantle the entire Changmin Oil Drilling Station within a year. [Mod/Player Responses]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We endorse these motions, [SECRET] though we privately express doubt this motion will pass the UNSC at least, due to Russia basically wholeheartedly supporting North Korean claims to the Antarctic it seems, from intelligence gathered. In addition to this, we privately submit a contingency, possibly the joint militarization of our plethora of stations, only to the United States. We'd be willing to use our Great Wall Station's I, II, III and IV to host a presence of both US researchers and military personnel, only if the US agrees of course. We have trained (and likely you as well) soldiers to work in rough polar conditions, as part of our PGFSEP (People's Ground Forces Siberian Exchange Program) operations, we have around 35,000 soldiers in active duty trained for harsh weather conditions that Antarctica brings, with tens or hundreds of thousands more in other areas we could muster together if need be. It's a purely theoretical proposition for now, but we name it the Sino-American Antarctic Militarization Operation or SAAMO. [SECRET] with a vote likely to be held soon. We are likely to rally our somewhat newer ally India to vote in the positive, and in the UNGA, with our combined diplomatic influence, we will surely pass it there. [US Response]
    • MOD Response: Both motions are voted upon. The United States' motion to condemn the Changmin Oil Drilling Station and the militarization of Antarctica, under the 1959 Antarctic Treaty and the 2037 New Antarctic Treaty, both of which specifically prohibit broad and specific acts alike of militarization, is first on the agenda of the UNGA. Sino-American maneuvering allows the vote to pass, with over 180 nations voting for it, less than ten voting against and about 20 abstentions, mostly in Africa and the Middle East. The next vote is among the UNSC, which would be a binding resolution, unlike the UNGA. Despite hours of negotiations, Russia cannot be convinced, they veto the motion in the UNSC, due to North Korea's virtual speech in the United Nations. Despite this, if action is not taken, China has already committed to supporting a US motion once again, and will likely try to coauthor such a motion.
  • North-korea-flag North Korean Response: President Hyeong Myung-Ki assures the United Nations in a virtual conference that demilitarization has begun in the Changmin Oil Drilling Station, as disguised National Defense Force and loyalist troops captured the station from the rebels who seeked to overthrow the democratic government through a bloodless affair. The North Korean leader announces that once the current conflict within his nation is solved and all the conspirators have been detained then he will be interested in talks of sharing the oil station with the international community. [Player/Mod Response]
  • MOD Response: Despite North Korea being voted against in the UNGA, it's a nonbinding resolution, and the UNSC vote didn't pass, so no action will be taken by a joint UN task force. However, many know that North Korea passed by a thin margin, and that if proactive steps are not taken, a Sino-American diplomatic maneuver will likely get Russia to abstain, and action will be taken at that point.
  • The US notes that North Korea could have exploited resources in the Pacific Ocean, the East China Sea, and indeed, in space, but instead chose to despoil and militarise the Earth's only remaining pristine and untouched continent. A chorus of voices across the United States, ranging from concerned scientists to politicians, to an outraged general public, all condemn the Changmin Oil Drilling Station.
  • Defence Affairs:
  • Space Affairs:
    • Self-Assembling Industrial Systems: The Department of Space approves the experimental deployment of "self-assembling industrial systems (SAIS)" to the Moon to construct industrial He-3 mining facilities in anticipation of the attainment of commercially-viable nuclear fusion energy. SAIS' are artificially intelligent robotic systems that, equipped with schematics and constant communication with mission control on Earth, are capable of landing on a target and, over time and with certain necessary supplies and supplementary robotics resupply missions, constructing various facilities using mostly locally-sourced materials in a mostly autonomous manner, thus significantly reducing the cost of constructing basic facilities (skeleton facilities) off-world. If this test is successful, further test SAIS' are expected to be deployed in the coming years.

2056[]


In the year 2056, as we reflect upon the current state of affairs, several significant developments have unfolded, shaping the global landscape and prompting necessary adaptations.

Firstly, the war in Bolivaria is reaching its conclusion, as the combined forces of China, the United States, India, and North Korea have proven to be insurmountable for the Bolivarian forces. The impossibility of continued resistance has necessitated a partition supported by the United Nations, with the aim of maintaining peace between Venezuela and Guyana. China is prepared to contribute to the rebuilding efforts of both nations, given the successful movements in Venezuela that have led to a socialist but democratic leadership. The leaders of both nations maintain friendly relations with both China and the United States, ensuring stability and cooperation.

Secondly, India's rapid rise to becoming the third world superpower is anticipated in the coming year. Although some tensions may arise among Communist hardliners in China, the majority population appreciates the recent positive rhetoric from India. Sino-Indian relations have reached unprecedented heights, bolstered by improved cooperation and a thawing of historical hostilities. The growing relationship between India and the United States has also contributed to India's ascent, which has occurred faster than anticipated.

Another significant development is the United Nations' recognition of the global population explosion, prompting a call for a more adaptive approach. With average life expectancy reaching 110 in the most developed cities of Europe, the United States, and China/Asia, working ages have increased in some nations while others have embraced automation. Climate change migration has emerged as a pressing issue, with only a handful of nations possessing the capacity to effectively address it. Russia, China, India, the United States, and Canada have either the size or advanced weather prediction methods facilitated by early AI integration, enabling them to manage the influx of climate-induced migration. This has resulted in major population movements, such as the exodus from Cuba into the United States and the influx of migrants from Bangladesh into China and India.

Lastly, a wave of socialist revolution has swept through many traditionally termed third world nations. Conservative ideologies have largely faded into the annals of history, as the "socialist generations" of Gen Z and Gen A exert their influence. Africa, Latin America, Central and Caribbean America, as well as India and China, have witnessed significant demographic shifts toward democratic socialist governments. While elements of liberalism and capitalism persist, they are gradually giving way to the values championed by the emerging "radical generation" (Gen B) as they enter the workforce.

"We are pleased but also devastated to announce a significant increase in China's population by 10.1 million within a single year, marking the largest immigration expansion in our nation's history.

  • Military Reform Act of 2056: The North Korea Congress passes the Military Reform Act of 2056, essentially completely reforming the Armed Forces from top to bottom, not seen since the last days of the 2047 Revolution. The reason for this is to prevent high-ranking members of the military forces to have enough power to support or launch a coup against the government. Military troops who have closely observed and interviewed may be allowed to be promoted to a higher rank if he/she is considered trustworthy by the North Korean government. The Ministry of Justice also clamped down on corruption and abuse of power within the military ranks which saw a large decrease of bribes and illegal holdings of dangerous substances within the North Korean Army.
  • Launching of the Ming Yu Space Shuttle: On April 22, the Ming Yu Space Shuttle, a more advanced version of the Apollo 11 which had just finished construction since last year, was finally launched from the Niyu Space Station which saw the first ever North Koreans step foot in the moon.

    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We voice our support publicly for a North Korean application on the fifteen member UNSC, but not permanent status quite yet. We are likely to support a unified Korea for UNSC though, permanently, however the next likely members we support are Brazil and Japan, due to their longstanding wishes to join the UNSC, their military power and diplomatic identities, as well as their GDP and economic standing. In terms of the peacekeeping operations, we will allow North Korean troops to operate under our peacekeeping missions as a joint force, if the UN rejects their status.
    • MOD Response: The Secretary-General informs President Myung-Ki that to join the UNSC as a permanent member, North Korea would have to get approval from the six current members on a unanimous vote. He privately confides in the President he believes North Korea could get a yes vote from India, China and Russia, but he doubts the prospects from France or the UK, and maybe even the US. On the issue of UN peacekeepers, he allows a small contingency to join the forces, only as peacekeepers though defensively, no offensive operations yet.

The NUP has the same goals of the Hyeong government which is the complete reunification of the Korean peninsula under a new democratic government. According to the president, this action of funding the political party was "Plan B" in case reunification efforts made by the North Koreans have failed, stalled, or slowed down. [SECRET] [Player/Mod Response]
    • MOD Response: This largely works, as South Korea doesn't monitor offshore account donations to political parties heavily, despite having issues with Chaebol Politics in the past. China too, funds the party largely in their Hong Kong accounts, so does Russia and India.
  • India - North Korean Economic Alliance: President Hyeong Myung-Ki sends their ambassadors to India to meet with their leadership to discuss with a possibility of a economic alliance with India and North Korea. The goals of these meetings is to ensure that North Korea has an economic connection with the rising third superpower and the formation of a strong allied relationship with the country. Another reason is to have Indian weapons and oil companies to send workers or build establishments within North Korea to allow the country's economy to be greatly strengthened. [Player/Mod Responses]
    • MOD Response: India agrees to this, with their leaders, currently the INC, taking a kinder attitude towards North Korea, along with China and Russia's lines.
  • Possible membership of BRICS+: President Hyeong wishes to meet with Chinese leaders and other members of the BRICS alliance with talks of temporarily joining the defensive military alliance until reunification with South Korea. According to the president, North Korea can greatly contribute to the alliance, stating that the nation with its top weapon manufacturers and powerful companies can strengthen the military alliance for the benefit of all. [Mod/Player Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: You'd probably wish to join the ESA rather than the BRICS+, which is economic. The ESA is basically an Eastern NATO in some form, defensive alliance and all. We can certainly discuss an ESA membership, most of the partners would probably vote you in.
    • North-korea-flag DRK Response: President Hyeong corrects his statement, saying that the Democratic Republic of Korea wishes to both join the ESA and BRICS+ in order to be part of an economic and military alliance for the benefit of the nation. [Mod/Player Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: You have officially been voted in to both, welcome in.
  • Project Desert Dragon: [SECRET] The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Resource work with newly formed Ministry of Intelligence to send a top secret transmission using hidden channels to Saudi Arabia and Iran, proposing an economic and military alliance with the middle eastern nations with North Korea sending military or material support in preserving order while the middle eastern states send large gallons of oil. However, North Korea also offers to purchase lands that may be use for future oil drilling sites but according to them, Saudi Arabia or Iran will still have large partial control of these sites and that North Korea will not interfere, whatsoever, in their affairs. [SECRET] [Player/Mod Response]
    • MOD Response: Iran agrees, Saudi Arabia rejects. Iran states "North Korea, wherever their status may lay, is always going to be a steadfast ally of our great Islamic Republic." Saudi Arabia sends a statement, claiming "You have helped ruin the Venezuelan Regime, we will not agree to this request."
  • Purchasing of an aircraft carrier: North Korea sends a request to the People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation to purchase one of their aircraft carriers and several warships from destroyers to frigates. Other than surface ships, the North Korean Armed Forces is interested in also buying several stealth submarines including one or two nuclear submarine. [Mod/Player Response]
    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We are more than happy to accommodate this request, viewing North Korea as a strategic ally. We have sold aircraft carriers to other nations as well, namely Pakistan, Brazil and Russia, as well as other smaller nations in the form of amphibious carriers and LHDs. We are willing to sell you one of our Type-003A carriers, which has been largely idle and not very useful to us, except for training and some naval demonstrations. In terms of destroyers, we would be willing to sell you our Type 052D destroyers, or possibly one or two Type-055's. Our primary carrier strike groups use Type-055EX, Type-057D and Type-059B (newest class) destroyers. In terms of frigates, our Type 054 would likely be best to sell, as our newer Type 054C and Type 058D make up the primary force of frigates. Our Type 094S would likely be the best option for nuclear subs, as our newer Type 098 and Type 100 submarines are more classified tech. We have non nuclear subs but they make up a small fraction of the Submarine Forces.

  • Possible Denuclearization: [SECRET] As an action of utmost importance, President Zhang Wei has taken the initiative to address the sensitive issue of denuclearization with the Democratic Republic of Korea (DRK) through a private letter to their President. Recognizing the sentiments of Korean citizens, particularly in South Korea, who view nuclear deterrence as a hindrance to reunification, President Zhang Wei proposes a bold plan to pave the way for a peaceful and secure future on the Korean Peninsula. The President's letter begins with an earnest appeal for open and transparent dialogue, emphasizing China's unwavering commitment to regional stability and denuclearization efforts. It reiterates China's support for a peaceful reunification of the Korean nation, promoting cooperation and mutual trust among all stakeholders. The proposal outlined in the letter offers two viable options. The first option advocates for complete denuclearization of the DRK, understanding the significant impact such a move would have on the path towards reunification. President Zhang Wei stresses the importance of embracing denuclearization as a bold step towards fostering trust and confidence among the Korean people and the international community. In the event that complete denuclearization may not be a viable choice for the DRK, President Zhang Wei presents an alternative approach—a weapon-sharing regime.

This approach emphasizes the priority of maintaining regional peace while safeguarding the security interests of all parties involved. Furthermore, the President expresses China's dedication to working closely with both Koreas and the international community to provide a comprehensive security umbrella, fostering a more conducive environment for reunification discussions. The letter extends an olive branch, urging the DRK President to consider this proposal as a unique opportunity to be a trailblazer in establishing a precedent for a denuclearized and secure Korean Peninsula. President Zhang Wei reassures the DRK of China's full support in achieving the shared goal of lasting peace and reunification, committing to explore all avenues of cooperation. As China remains committed to playing a constructive role in the region, President Zhang Wei's letter signifies a genuine effort to seek common ground and foster a peaceful resolution to the longstanding nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula. It is a gesture of hope and goodwill, illustrating China's determination to support the aspirations of the Korean people towards a peaceful, prosperous, and unified future. [SECRET] [Player Response]

We'd be willing to fund such activities, obviously with a respectable ROI in mind.
    • MOD Response: The Russian Federation makes a bid as well, saying their shipyard in Vladivostok would be able to assist with some of the parts. It's likely the PRC and the Russian Federation would work together in such a bid. South Korea declines, saying the DRK would be allowed to use their CVX-2 Class Ships when they reunify.

They welcome discussion on an economic alliance, however hold off on a military alliance, saying "India, China and Pakistan all have bilateral defense agreements with our nation, while we appreciate the sentiment, we are not sure what a Kashmiri-DRK defense agreement would entail for us. We have already asked Russia and will ask the US for defense agreements, and we would do so with a United Korea as well."
  • Russo - North Korean Military Exercises: North Korean ambassadors meet with Russian authorities on May 23 to discuss of next year's military exercises and war games with the Russian Federation in the Arctic Ocean.

2058[]


As the year 2058 dawns, the world braces for some of the most consequential elections of the century. In China, India, Russia, the United States, Indonesia, South Korea, Taiwan, and Germany, nationalist candidates and voices emerge, challenging the status quo of globalist cooperation. Despite this, these voices remain on the fringe, as younger generations embrace a more globalist philosophy while still upholding a strong sense of national identity and patriotism.

Amidst these political developments, the RIC alliance between Russia, India, and China sets a ground-breaking example of cooperation. The three nations embark on a joint venture to build the largest non-earth radio telescope, named the "Cosmic Harmony Telescope." Notably, the US and the UK have also been invited to participate, symbolizing a spirit of openness and collaboration in the pursuit of scientific exploration.

In another unprecedented move, the Russian Federation, the UK, the PRC, and France propose the first concrete ESA/NATO joint military exercises at the G20 meeting in 2057. The proposal aims to bridge the gap between rival military blocs that have historically avoided large-scale cooperation due to lingering Cold War-era fears of intelligence gathering. The exercise is given the name "Unified Resolve," representing the newfound willingness of former adversaries to work together towards common goals.

Despite historical tensions, the world celebrates nearly 30 years of global peace, the most peaceful year since the end of the Soviet Union in 1991. A joint report by the Beijing Institute on Foreign Affairs, the RAND Corporation, the Indian Council for World Affairs, and the Center for Strategic Research (Russia) confirms that this is the most peaceful era in decades. The report sheds light on the positive trajectory of global affairs, as countries strive for cooperation and mutual understanding instead of confrontation.

As the year progresses, the Cosmic Harmony Telescope successfully captures unprecedented images from space, opening new avenues for astronomical research and deepening international scientific collaboration. The telescope becomes a symbol of unity among nations and a testament to the potential of global cooperation for the betterment of humanity.

The proposal for the "Unified Resolve" joint military exercises gathers momentum as participating nations begin discussions on logistics, objectives, and training scenarios. The exercise aims to foster trust, promote transparency, and enhance collective security in a world marked by increasing interconnectedness and shared challenges.

On the domestic front, nations holding pivotal elections navigate through debates, campaigns, and voter engagement. The younger generations' interest in global cooperation, alongside their commitment to national identity, plays a decisive role in shaping the political landscape. The outcome of these elections will determine the path of each nation, either embracing further global integration or asserting nationalistic stances.

Internal Affairs:

  • Nationalist Party of North Korea: On January 28 2058, a new faction emerged within the National Populist Party under Nam Sang Kyu who immediately seceded from the party following disagreements on the future of the NPP. The faction is called the Nationalist Party of North Korea which aims to ensure North Korean superiority over the Peninsula and the survival of the North Korean identity but the NPNK wishes to continue the process of reunification between the 2 Korean nations. The NPP adopts multiple far-right ideologies such as Korean Fascism, Ultranationalism, and a new form of Juche called Neo-Juche. The fascist party rejects aspects of Capitalism and sees Leftist ideas as dangerous. However, the Nationalists receive little support from the South and the young North Korean people instead seeing much progress within the hardliners and old generation of North Korean society.
  • Unified Democratic Progressive Korean Party: To prevent the rise of several new parties such as the Nationalist Party of North Korea and the National Populist Party of South Korea, a large faction from the Democratic Party of North Korea and the Progressive People's Party of South Korea agreed to unite into the first ever unified Korean party. The Unified Korean Party (UKP) or simply known as the "Unifiers" was formed with its goals centered around Liberalism, Progressivism, and Social Democracy. The Unifiers quickly gained immense support and popularity among the new generation of North and South Koreans.
  • Korean Independence Front: On March 10, several bombings erupted around the former DMZ by suspected terrorists linked to the newly formed terrorist rebel organization called the Korean Independence Front. According to North Korean intelligence, the KIF is made up of former North Korean People's Liberation Army troops, anti-unification groups, and South Korean extremists who believe that the Korean peninsula should remain divided. However, the Hyeong government assured his people, the southern government, and the international community that the threat of the terrorist group was only limited to rural areas and small towns.
  • Formation of the Unified Korean Anti-Terrorist Legion: As a response to the terrorist threat of the KIF, President Hyeong and his presidential counterpart in South Korea agreed to form a joint North-South Korean military force made up of special forces troops from both nations and experienced intelligence officers called the Unified Korean Anti-Terrorist Legion or "Legion" for short. The UKATL is financed and equipped with the latest technology by both nations in the peninsula. It is expected that the UKATL would force the KIF to surrender or would destroy them by the start of next year.
  • Wave of Korean Patriotism and Nationalism: Hopes are high in both North and South as Koreans from different aspects of life are excited and hopeful for the reunification of the Korean peninsula into one nation. The once great division between the two nations rapidly diminished and is replaced with a sense of nationalism as thousands of people imagine a future wherein the "Greater Korean Republic" would bring not only the peninsula but the whole world into an age of prosperity. This thinking allows the Unified Democratic Progressive Korean Party to become the spotlight of the political world as politicians from both Korean nations join together and as public support to the UDPKP rises in a exponential rate.

External Affairs:

  • Support for nationalist parties: President Hyeong publicly announces his support on "non-radical" nationalist parties, saying that every nation must also focus on their own affairs first before helping others to ensure the safety and betterment of the people. The North Korean government is actively giving financial support to the many nationalist parties around the world and sending political advisers to guide these parties to the spotlight of their own respective political worlds.

    • ChinaFlag PRC Response: We would allow this, and would hope India and Russia would do the same, we will soon open it up to all scientific endeavors interested in using it.
    • MOD Response: India and Russia approve as well, they too will open up the telescope soon to all.
  • Interests in Africa and South America: On April 12, the New Korea Corporation along with the reformed companies of APEX and Rising Sun begin to establish mining sites throughout the continents of Africa and South America. The goal of these mining operations is to provide not only the corporations but the nation of North Korea to important natural resources such as metal, coal, and gold. The Hyeong government, unsure whether to assist these companies, sends an ambassador to several nations in Africa and South America to request permission to start mining operations in their own territories. The North Koreans and their companies can act as peacekeepers for these nations while also providing their government financial and military support. [Player/Mod Response]
    • MOD Response: Due to North Korea being a Belt and Road Initiative member, this largely works, as pretty much every nation in both Latin America and Africa have signed cooperation agreements, allowing the mining operations to be approved under such infrastructure.

This has resulted in an expansion of the population of the Moon, though the workers are mostly high skilled labour, with virtually all menial work being conducted by automated systems and robots due to the enormous expense of human workers on the moon. It should also be noted that a significant portion of the menial work in the Johnson Industrial Park is conducted by remotely-controlled robots piloted by pilots on Earth. This pioneering technique further reduces labour costs for lunar manufacturing.
