Backstory

The world has come far. With the end of the Syrian Civil War and the end of Israeli hostilities, a peace fell over the Levant unlike anything seen in the past 150 years. The pacification of North Korea came at great cost, but great reward, with the re-education of North Koreans being carried out generously by many charities and countries. The gradual democratization of nations started by Saudi Arabia ended absolutism, dictatorship, and autocracy in many nations.

However, the problems never end. Hostilities between Ukraine and Russia continue to escalate, with many estimating a war in the next five years. The broken flood barriers in Bangladesh have led to over 1 million homeless Bangladeshi migrants flooding into neighbouring countries, with even more stuck in Bangladesh itself, while the government is on the verge of bankruptcy. The political crisis in Ecuador is devolving into a diplomatic one, with Peru and Paraguay threatening intervention. Iran's turmoil spiralled out of control after the Shekak massacre, with riots breaking out across the country. Now, insurgents have taken advantage and various groups are fighting against the government across Iran, with many fearing that extremist sections of the opposition may take control of Iran's nuclear arsenal.

Greece is verging on economic collapse, and with an expansionist Turkey to its east and a protective Russia fighting to keep it alive, the threat of a Russo-Turkish War continues to rise. Russia and Serbia have also allegedly started to fund Sprskan militants in Bosnia in order to destabilize the Bosnian government and distract NATO. However, this funding was not directed specifically, and so a large portion of this has landed in the lands of the Islamic State of Bosnia, a militant terrorist organisation set on creating a Sharia state in the Balkans. Most recently, a bombing in the capitol left 17 ministers injured.

Everyone seeks peace for the world, but glory for their nation. Which nation will you lead gloriously though this shattered world?

Goals

Choose a goal that adheres to your nation's best interests. For example, Venezuela won't give a shit about the Bangladeshi Migrant Crisis. A nation can only choose one or two goals to reach at any time.


Defuse tensions between Russia and Ukraine - As the Iranian Civil War broke out, the Russian military presence of the Ukrainian border continued to increase. Now, Russia is considering threatening to invade if certain demands are not met, and NATO is being pressured further to guarantee Ukraine's sovereignty.

Russian2030

True When -

  • Russia and Ukraine are at total peace
  • Change in Russian or Ukrainian governments
  • Foreign military intervention
  • Russia and/or Ukraine no longer exist
  • Russo-Ukrainian War

Resolve Iranian Civil War - Iran's turmoil spiralled out of control after the Shekak massacre, with riots breaking out across the country. Now, insurgents have taken advantage and various groups are fighting across Iran. There is global concern that insurgents will take control of Iran's nuclear arsenal, and so many nations, including China, United States, Saudi Arabia, and Russia, are considering an intervention to restore peace.

True When -

  • Iran is at total peace
  • Change in Iran's government
  • Foreign military intervention
  • Iran no longer exists

Prevent South American War - The government shutdown in Ecuador was a major concern for many of the nations around Ecuador, as the shutdown lasted for weeks before riots started against the government. The situation devolved when clashes between riot police and protesters started resulting in major injuries. In the resulting OAS conference, Peru and Paraguay called for a direct intervention if the situation devolves, while countries such as Canada, Brazil, and Argentina were content with sending aid to the injured protesters, and Bolivia and Chile were firmly anti-interventionist. The OAS conference was a major failure for diplomacy as no consensus was reached. Many fear that Peru and Paraguay will continue with their plans to directly intervene against the Ecuadoran government. When the government shutdown ends, it is likely that Ecuador will begin clamping down on these protestors.

True When -

  • Change in Ecuador government
  • Ecuador no longer exists
  • Foreign military intervention
  • The Great South American War

Prevent Civil War in Bosnia - With Russia and Ukraine gearing up for war, Russia and Serbia have allegedly started to fund Srpskan militants in Bosnia in order to destabilize the Bosnian government and distract NATO. However, this funding was not directed specifically, and so a large portion of this has landed in the lands of the Islamic State of Bosnia, a militant terrorist organisation set on creating a Sharia state in the Balkans. Most recently, a bombing in the capitol left 17 ministers injured.

True When -

  • Change in Bosnian Government
  • Bosnia no longer exists
  • Foreign military intervention
  • Civil War in Bosnia

Resolve Chinese Insurgency - After the North Korean nuclear missile hit Shanghai, destroying it and killing millions of people, many in the Chinese military saw the governmental response as ineffective. Since then, parts of the military have advocated for a stronger military outlook, arguing that one nuclear weapon from an incredibly weak country has weakened the Chinese government beyond repair. These sentiments grew after the formation of the Revolutionary Army for the Liberation of the People, a neo-Maoist terrorist organisation, and later the Army to Restore Chinese Socialism, a neo-Maoist militant organisation which split off from RALP after the latter's indiscrimination against civilians. Many have seen the government's response to these organisations as sub-par, and so sections of the military will attempt to overthrow the Chinese government in Beijing, while simultaneously taking over Guangzhou, Nanjing, and other large cities by 2034

True When -

  • China is at total peace
  • Change in Chinese Government
  • China no longer exists
  • Foreign military intervention

Prevent crisis in Greece - Greece is close to economic collapse. If this occurs, Russian-supported nationalists such as Golden Dawn could take control of the Greek government, increasing tensions in the Balkans.

Greece protests

True When -

  • Change in Greek government
  • Greece no longer exists
  • Greek economic collapse Crisis

Resolve Bangladeshi Migrant Crisis - The relentless push of climate change took its toll on Bangladesh, as the country is now faced with a major migrational crisis. Millions have been flooded out of their homes, and are moving into India and Myanmar to seek help. This is a major concern for many nations, who have not forgotten the threat of genocide perpetrated by Myanmar's government against the Rohingya Muslims. With this new influx of migrants, the situation could once again collapse.

True When -

  • Migrants are resettled/relocated (including deportation)
  • Myanmar and/or India collapses

2032

Before 2033

In a formal press statement from Lviv, Ukrainian premier Stepan Taranenko addresses the current situation on the Russian-Ukrainian border as well as the "illegal" Donetsk People's Republic. Military prescense on aforementioned borders shall remain as such unless there is a change in the "invasive policies by Russia and the flawed logic of the puppets in Donetsk." This comes after a 2 hour long standoff between Russian and Ukrainian border patrol due to overreaction.

The Turkish government has denied any claims that they are encouraging Turkish companies to withdraw from Greece, worsening their economic situation. However, there is substantial evidence supporting this, including pictures and audio clips of government officials dealing with known Turkish businessmen who conduct business in Greece and as well as suspicious-looking packets of money.

The Arabian Union has pushed for international intervention into Iran to prevent the situation from escalating into a civil war that could destabilise the Middle Eastern region.

After narrowly surviving an assassination attempt, Chinese President-For-Life Xi Jinping has declared martial law.

The "Islamic State of Bosnia" launches another attack in Mostar, driving an oil truck into a crowd of people at 8:00pm. The resulting explosion killed 56 and injured over 200. The Bosnian government has declared martial law.

Reports of violence increase across India, Bangladesh, and Myanmar. Bangladesh has fallen into anarchy, with the government holding on in remote bunkers controlling regions using their small military. Myanmar has also declared martial law, using the crisis as an excuse to start a genocide against Muslims in the nation.

India has moved much of their army to the Bangladeshi border, refusing to let any in, which has caused debates and protests all over India. Some believe they should be let in, while others believe that India should militarily occupy Bangladesh until further notice. The genocide in Myanmar has caused even more uproar, as the Indian government elects to do nothing despite their hard stance against Myanmar over a decade ago.

Protests against the government in Ecuador continue as Abdalá Bucaram, President of Ecuador, continues to solidify his reign and limit democracy in the nation.

Sudan requests membership in the Middle Eastern Military Organisation, as ARMA continues to grow powerful in Cairo.

United States of America

  • Backstory: This shows the whole backstory of the US essentially. However the year 2032 backstory is not canon since it started right off in 2032 rather than 2033 but I'll include all of 2032 events.
  • Government
    • 2032 Presidential Election (November 2032): See the backstory for the rest of the election, I'm not making a full paragraph here. Paul Ryan is elected President as a Republican candidate.
    • Elizabeth Warren's Legacy: Her legacy is not as what she promised for two terms consecutively. Her promise to the universal basic income system, failed. She had withdrawn a lot of relationships especially with tensions that have escalated in the Middle East when MEMO began to emerge as a proper alliance led by Egypt and made the United States more isolated than ever as a result. So she might be forgotten, unlike Trump who has escalated things a little bit in the late 2010s though.
  • Military
    • Military Budget Promise: President-elect Ryan promises to raise the budget again after Warren cuts down the military budget spending by 40% by the end of her presidency. He believed that in order to secure America's place in the international community, he would want to raise the budget once again, mainly dedicated to research of certain technologies such as handheld railguns. However robot law enforcement has started to come into reality in some way, slowly creeping into most trials and tests recently, Paul Ryan began considering whether military robots should be heavily regulated, so that only automated unmanned aerial vehicles and self-driving vehicles could be allowed but not robots in fear of raising unemployment once again by demilitarising human numbers once his first term starts.
  • Economy
    • Recovering, but don't get your hopes up. The United States is always in trouble in unemployment recently and while the stock market is growing, the inevitable will happen very soon.
  • Research and Technology
    • Lunar Colony Plan: There are unannounced plans to establish a base on the Moon. The reason why it was fully delayed because they have not a lot of funding in place under Warren's administration despite a successful touchdown on the Moon years ago. Private space industry was also expanding which was one of the reasons why government-sponsored agencies weren't able to churn out something similar to establishing a long-term base on the Moon.
    • Quantum Computer Technology: Quantum computers are becoming more of a normal thing in government and scientific research. Qunatum computers are proven to be much more faster than conventional computers in the early 2020s and powerful as well, where they could process millions of tasks every second. However making commercial progress was a far-fetched thing in the last decade. Recently the government had made emphasis to make this open to the public but many estimate that quantum computers for the public might not happen until the late 2030s at earliest or the 2050s in a worst case.
    • Automation of Workplace: In the 2020s, many jobs were being lost to robots that were more efficient than their human counterparts and with the stock crash in the early 2020s, the US had a dangerous unemployment rate of 20% to 25% at the mid-2020s. That improved production efficiency but led to many people turning to parties, notably the Republicans by the post-2024 elections who promise to slow down automation of industry and prevent industrial chaos. The bill for a universal basic income system in place failed to pass under Elizabeth Warren's first term and so she was forced to negotiate with right-leaning politicians to expand all industries domestically that allows the human workforce to work. However analysts and futurists predict that a second explosion of automation will take place in the mid-2030s which would boost the unemployment rate back up to 30% in time even if the 10% unemployment treshold pledged by President-elect Ryan succeeded and that the theoretical Great Recession might also boost unemployment rate as another factor.
  • Diplomacy
    • Philippines: Big Brother is watching you.
    • Denmark: Big Brother is watching you.
    • Switzerland: Big Brother is watching you.
    • Japan: We would like to improve our own relations, for very obvious reasons. If you don't accept then it's fine by your choice. (Because Starring is that guy who would negotiate alliances with me, the guy who played as North American Union and other guys probably in the past, probably not who knows?)
    • Greece: Under the Warren administration, financial support is heavy given to Greece since Elizabeth Warren was President of the United States and that Turkish tensions have risen back at that time. But now it seems that the US are not holding much more support recently due to their shaky economic position especially with China, with the federal government trying to give a bare minimum to the state itself.
    • Canada: Canada Goose is owned by RODEBLUR.

Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

  • Government
    • The Democratic Kingdom II: After Khalid Al-Saud's extremely successful 6 year term, he has agreed to step down and let another become Prime Minister. His time in the office was very successful, as he and his brother, King Mohammed bin Salman Al-Saud, established lasting democracy in Saudi Arabia, averting the economic crisis to come around oil. The King chose:
      • Ismaeel al-Qazi: Liberalist - polled at 36%
      • Dhaakir el-Haq: Islamic Fundementalist - polled at 16%
      • Raaji al-Suleiman: Integralist - polled at 3%
      • Haneef al-Farid: Panislamist - polled at 11%
      • Naasiruddeen el-Riaz: Islamic Democrat - polled at 34%
      • This election, the second in Saudi history, is significantly different to the last election. For one, there is no Saudi relative, contrary to what many assumed about the King and his allegiances. Secondly, there are more Islamic-based candidiates than the previous election. The two most popular candidiates are Ismaeel al-Qazi, co-founder of the Liberal Party (with Khalid al-Saud, former Prime Minister); and Naasiruddeen el-Riaz, opposition leader and founder of the Islamic Democratic Party. It is widely believed that these two candidates will advance, as they also have the most seats in the Saudi Parliament.
      • Saudi General Election: First Round
      • Ismaeel al-Qazi: 33%
      • Naasiruddeen el-Riaz: 27%
      • Haneef al-Farid: 16%
      • Dhaakir el-Haq: 13%
      • Raaji al-Suleiman: 1%
      • Qazi and Riaz advance to the second round. This was very predictable. However, this was troubling for the Liberal Party, as more people voted for Farid and Haq than previously assumed, and those votes were likely to go to Riaz. This is a tense election, and any outcome will be devastating for the other party.
      • Saudi General Election: Second Round
      • Naasiruddeen el-Riaz: 56%
      • Ismaeel al-Qazi: 44%
      • Naasiruddeen el-Riaz became the 2nd Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia. Following his defeat in the first election, Riaz was incredibly happy. The Islamic Democratic Party was still a minority party in Parliament, however, and so the next 3 years would be focused on getting enough seats to become the majority party in Parliament. Currently, they are stuck in a coalition with a number of smaller parties, but Riaz seeks to get rid of these smaller parties and absorb them into his own.
    • Persian Incursion: Saudi Arabia is considering intervening. This could be the perfect opportunity to free Iran from its theocratic dictatorship, and place it on the same path that has led Saudi Arabia for the past 7 years. However, problems will arise with Turkey if they decide to save the Iranian dictator.
  • Royal Saudi Arabian Armed Forces: The Royal Saudi Arabian Armed Forces consists of the Royal Saudi Land Forces, the Royal Saudi Air Force, the Royal Saudi Navy, the Royal Saudi Air Defense, and the Royal Saudi Strategic Missile Force.
    • Personnel: As the population increases so does the number of those fit for service. There are now 17.8 million Saudi Arabians fit for service. King Mohammed's conscription plan is complete, with many more volunteers coming into the military to become fitter and healthier to improve their chances in the job market. The number of reserves increased to 1,535,000 due to this. There are also 473,000 active personnel.
    • Gulf Operations: Gulf Operations are as strong as ever, as co-operation with the Omani Fleet gives the Saudi Fleet great power. With the third Aircraft Carrier under construction, as well as a new Helicopter Carrier and a Destroyer, the Saudi Fleet continues to grow exponentially.
    • Royal Saudi Land Forces: The RSLF is the largest branch of the Saudi Arabia Armed Forces. They have 162,000 personnel, 1,962 Combat Tanks, 7,925 Armored Fighting Vehicles, 913 Self-Propelled Artillery, 816 Towed Artillery, and 694 Rocket Projectors.
    • Royal Saudi Air Force: The RSAF is the aviation branch of the Saudi Arabia Armed Forces. They have 122,000 personnel, 431 Fighter Aircraft, 471 Attack Aircraft, 356 Transport Aircraft, 367 Trainer Aircraft, and 73 Attack Helicopters.
    • Royal Saudi Navy: The RSN is the naval branch of the Saudi Arabia Armed Forces. They have 129,000 personnel, 2 Aircraft Carriers, 1 Helicopter Carrier, 9 Frigates, 3 Destroyers, 9 Corvettes, 61 Patrol Craft, and 7 Mine Warfare Vessels.
  • Diplomacy
    • United States of America: On behalf of the Arabian Union, Saudi Arabia invites President Paul Ryan to Riyadh to discuss an energy partnership and co-operation in possible future operations.
    • Kurdistan: On behalf of the Arabian Union, Saudi Arabia invites Kurdish leaders to Al-Loloah Al-Sahrah to discuss the Iranian Civil War. Particularly an intervention on the side of the republicans, in order to foster the growth of democracy in the Middle East. With a large power such as Iran on our side, our ideology will grow, especially against foreign powers such as Turkey who seek to disrupt this. Give me your answer and we will discuss contingencies.
    • Turkey: On behalf of the Arabian Union, Saudi Arabia officially warns Turkey to stay away from the Iranian Civil War.
    • China: We would like to expand our bases in your territory, in order to further our co-operation. The Arabian Union is grateful for all that has been done.
    • Egypt: You can pretend to be innocent, planning nothing, but I know you are planning an invasion against me. I will be very surprised if you manage to convince the Turks to join your side, especially after your short-term rivalry. That is, before I disbanded your entire alliance. Don't threaten us further, or you will see who is the dominant Middle Eastern power here.
    • East African Community: East Africa, the Arabian Union would like to further relations with you and to help you achieve your long term goal of unification. You estimate that it will take 5 to 10 years, but with Arabian co-operation, this will only take 1 or 2. We will help you establish yourselves as an emerging power on the world stage. Consider our proposal.
    • Israel: I know our relations have been incredibly bad, but Saudi Arabia now has nothing against your people or your government. We would like to start anew, and create new friendships. It is your choice whether you want to be on the right side of history.
    • Federal Government of Somalia: After the collapse of the African Union, you only have the East African Community to help you. The Arabian Union proposes a partnership: The Arabian Union will intervene militarily to defeat the Islamic insurgents, if your government agrees to be temporarily controlled by the Arabian Union in order to create a federation of Somalian states which will bring stability to the region. It is your choice.
    • Republican Coalition of Iran: We will help you, but only on two conditions: you allow us to help you create an Iranian Federation that will bring peace and democracy to your nation; and you join the Arabian Union after the end of the civil war. Every Arabian Union member is equal, and therefore you will get as much representation as anyone else. If you wish to win this war, it would be wise to accept my proposal. If you agree, come to Al-Loloah Al-Sahrah to meet with Arabian Union and Kurdish leaders.

Federative Republic of Brazil

  • Backstory/Government (It's basically the same thing here): Aécio Neves, who has been president of Brazil since his election in 2030, has been maintaining a campaign of lifting people out of poverty and decreasing corruption ever since his inauguration. So far, his efforts are underachieved, but are much better than the corruption and poverty of Brazil in years' past.
    • Allegations: A few members of the opposition have accused Neves of embezzling funds from the national budget, however Neves has denied these accusations.
    • Reforestation and Tree Hybrids: Reforestation efforts are finally increasing the amount of forest in Brazil after a long period of consistent yet slowing deforestation. Yet a controversial plan has been proposed by Neves' Research Minister to create a tree hybrid that grows faster, produces more wood, and has higher quality. The controversy surrounding this proposal is that technological process are planned to be used for this tree hybrid.
  • Military: Aécio Neves intends to keep the military budget as is, but he does intend to direct funds towards more military vehicles and robots. Robots have now become an integral part of the army, as part of the Robotic Armed Machinery Forces (RAMF).
  • Research and Development: Several government-subsidized laboratories and research facilities have begun research for Brazil's future projects. Also, the tech industry of Campinas has blown the city's population up, adding 2.3 million into the city, along with 1 million thanks to municipal annexations.
    • Project Alegre: Project Alegre is a robotic project being developed in Porte Alegre. Their mission is to develop a powerful robot structure with a powerful steel alloy that is secret from the outside world. Development has just begun with the researchers on the drawing board.
    • Operation Alberto: Operation Alberto is another robotic project, this time being developed in Salvador. Their mission is to develop a powerful AI that is susceptible from conversion by foreign powers and cannot attain a consciousness. Similar to Project Alegre, this Operation is only on the drawing board.
    • Automation of Jobs: The quickly-increasing amount of automation of jobs in the country, several have gone out to protest in Brazil's largest cities, with the most prominent one in Campinas. President Neves stated in his election campaign that he would try to increase jobs as much as he could, to slow the rate at which automation is growing, but none of that has occurred since. Jobs that require heavy human interaction such as the job of nursing and teaching have remained mostly intact, but jobs like truck driving and widespread importation of server bots have wiped out entire industries to make way for bots.
      • Consciousness Drive: A big woe of most citizens and researchers is the increasing smartness of bots and the possibility of a robot attaining consciousness, which could ignite a war against humans and robots. For that, Operation Alberto was initiated to try and curb the effects, but woe still is in the public.
  • Economy: The economy is steadily growing, but slowing of the growth is expected in years to come. Unemployment is at an all-time high, at 25%!
  • Diplomacy:
    • Ecuador: Aid is being sent towards the injured protesters. We hope that the government understands that their shutdown is failing and that it is affecting everyone. We do not intend to directly intervene, but if we must, we must. We do not want the government shunning and clamping down on the protesters, who have unanimous rights for protesting their government. This is a free world, and the fact that the government is not bothering to come back from their cowering only shows how weak they are as a government.
    • Turkey: We request you to not pull Turkish business men from Greece. If you do, the whole crisis will most likely spill over, and you will feel their economic pain as a result.
    • Greece: Aid is being sent towards Greece, however it is slowly diminishing thanks to the economic slowing. We hope Greece can pull itself out of the hole it's in.
    • Russia: Your treatment of Ukraine's sovereignty is so low and dehumanizing that we wish to withdraw from BRICS and any other relations we've had. Goodbye Russia. We do not wish you well.
    • NATO: Brazil submits an application into NATO (essentially towards the U.S). Brazil has willingly withdrawn from BRICS as well, not seeing it as a plausible economic alliance. We hope that the entrance into NATO will be an excuse for its neighbors to back off and bow to Brazil will help decrease world instability and stop Russia's disheartening acts.

  • Economy: While the growth is relatively slow, Japan's economic downturn and unemployment is not that bad compared to others, as apart from domestic areas, Japan also has a growing interest in other parts of Asia (especially Southeast Asia, South Asia) and Africa, which is a new growth point for the economy.
  • Research and Technology:
    • Lunar colony by JAXA: Japan's lunar colony is planned to be built by 2034, with a smaller size compared to the American plans (( no, i don't know how big is America's will be I just had to put a comparison point )), with the Japanese private space industry as the large contractors for this plan. If successful, there are plans to expand its size in the next 10 years.
    • Cleanup of waste in Nagoya: While the nuke's power has disappated over the years, research for quicker cleanup is still going on. Not much success is predicted for some time until breakthrough in nuclear technology.
    • Japanese military equipment upgrade: While having success with upgrading our cutting-edge airplanes and tanks, much of our weapons are still outdated, with some research success predicted to be in the next 3 years, larger ones in 8 years.
  • Diplomacy:
    • United States of America: We also wish to improve our relations, but for our interest, we wish for more self-sufficiency. However, as the New Japan needs a partner to continue its growth, we should try to be closer once again, especially in issues regarding China.
    • East African Community: Japan plans to increase investment in the area, and we will try to help integration both internally and globally.
    • South African Community: Our technology industry needs the resources produced by the South African Community, so we will further enter the markets of the South African Community.
    • Federal Somalia: In order to end the problems plaguing Japanese ships in the area, we wish to help you end the insurgency through our base in Djibouti.
    • Israel: We believe while Israel is not an island country, our situation is similiar in many areas, so we wish to establish greater economic cooperation.
    • Arabian Union: As a growing power in your region, Japan believes we should further cooperate with each other, as there are greater benefits for both of us because of it in the future.

Ukraine

  • Economy: Economy was stagnating all time. It grew a bit after joining the EU but has fallen slightly after the worldwide economic crisis. The main features of Ukrainian economy:
    • Before the crisis, the GDP was less stagnant and grew by ~3-4% per year.
    • During the crisis, the GDP has fallen in two times.
    • After the crisis, the GDP grew by ~1% per year.
    • Ukraine is one of the least advanced countries in the World. It is poorer than most of the African countries, and the poorest in Europe. It is mostly used as a resource colony. The secondary, tertiary and quaternary economic sectors are very poorly developed, while the primary sector is the fastest growing sector. Lack of investigations, brain drain, corrupted government and other factors have made Ukraine perspectiveless country.
    • Breakdown of economic activities:
      • Primary sector: 26%
      • Secondary sector: 24%
      • Tertiary sector: 48%
      • Quaternary sector: 2%
    • Ukraine specializes in metallurgy (18% of GDP) and agro-based industries (33% of GDP). 
    • The unemployment rate is 36%
  • Demographics:
    • Population: 18 million people. The population is falling fast because of high mortality rate, small birth rate, and very big emigration. The population is falling at 1.5-2% every year. Lots of Ukrainians, who were working abroad, stayed in European countries and now live there. 
    • Government: After Euromaidan, nothing really changed. The government is still very corrupt and Ukraine is still an oligarchy. 8% of Ukrainians (89% of them are represented in a state machine) control 76% of the whole economy. But there is a hope for brighter future. With government becoming more corrupt, the dissatisfaction of the population grows too. Lots of (more than 300) political parties, from radical communists to anarcho-individualists, united into "New Front" - a political movement for creating a new government and lustrating old one. It was formed in 2031 and takes off in Ukraine. It plans to create a new Ukraine, where all people can be heard and live together in peace despite all differences.
  • Military: Ukraine is a highly militarized country because it has problems with Russia and Novorussia, but the equipment is pretty old. All military is united into "National Army", with 80000 infantry personnel and 300 light tanks. The air fleet is comprised of 120 fighters and 60 bombers. The Navy is almost destroyed due to lack of funding and needs quick modernization.
  • Diplomacy: Russophobic and pro-Western propaganda inside, supports EU and USA and denounces Russia.

2033

Shattered 2033


Stepan Taraneko speaks out against the stance taken by France, in which he states "Does France support the erosion of stability in Europe by the Russians? Does France even regard the situation in the East as important?" Meanwhile, accounts of human rights violations in Donetsk are made public by Amnesty International, mostly involving Ukrainian citizens in the area.

The Chinese Civil War officially begins, with sections of the military launching coups in Guangzhou, Nanjing, and Beijing. The Beijing coup fails, and Xi Jinping is safely escorted out of the capital while intense fighting ensues. Uyghur rebels in Xinjiang, funded by Turkestan, begin raiding supply lines to the province, cutting off access to the province. With Indian support, the State of Tibet declares independence from the People's Republic of China. Xi Jinping, although in hiding, maintains his position of power and authorises multiple military operations to secure cities under neo-Maoist control. "Xinjiang and Tibet can wait, but what is happening in the East, is very serious and must be dealt with first."

A stampede has occured at the India-Bangladesh border near Hasnabad, killing 217 and injuring another 384 due to the sheer size of the crowd at the border. This was believed to have been caused by a blank warning fired by an Indian border guard at a wall-jumper. Due to this, India has increased border defense at strategic locations.

Protests in Athens turn violent as the government uses force to disperse the growing crowds outside government buildings. As a result, several of these buildings are vandalised, and the Bank of Greece has been set on fire. Multiple parties call for current preisident Maurice Tassos to step down from his position due to accusations of the embezzlement of the national budget on Tassos' personal indulgences. After the global recession, the government officially files for bankruptcy, and Greece collapses as a whole. The military revolts and various juntas appear, funded by the Russian government.

Germany questions the decision by France to rearm the Maginot Line without any specific reason.

Bangladesh calls for the Muslim nations of Asia to help lessen the migrant crisis, such as Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Central Asian states. UN efforts to curb the severity of the situation are understandably not as effective.

Due to the Chinese Civil War, the global economy enters a massive recession, causing many economies to go under. The Greek and Bosnian governments collapse, resulting in Russian intervention in both cases. The Russian Fleet is sighted in the Aegean Sea. Serbia sends their military into Bosnia, inciting rebellion. The Islamic State of Bosnia rises up, attacking Sarajevo and sieging several other cities.

Ecuador comes under intense pressure from Peru yet again, as the protests grow as the economy takes a nosedive. Peru starts training exercises exploring a possible Peru-Ecuador war.

Kurdistan agrees to the meeting with Saudi Arabia.

China asks for Arabian aid.

Egypt denies any military build-up against Saudi Arabia.

The East African Community agrees to the deal with the Arabian Union and seeks further co-operation with Japan.

Somalia agrees to the deal with the Arabian Union and seeks further co-operation with Japan.

Russia is now hostile to Brazil.

Turkestan and Turkmenistan enter negotiations to unite.

French Republic

Mélanie Lucroy responds to the statements made by Stepan Taraneko.

We support neither the Russians nor the Ukrainians at this point in time, the will of the people is the cause of this matter. We will not surrender ourselves like we did embarassingly in World War Two again. We are announcing a General Rearmament of our nation to prepare ourselves in case of a war we are forced to pick sides with. As far as France and the French people is concerned, the East is not of our concern as of now. Thank you.

French Foreign Minister in a debate with the German chancellor, in question of the Maginot Line:

This is an action we must take for the defence of the people. The Maginot Line will start as a small line of fortification. When more tension builds up we will increase the Maginot Line. We are hoping that we are both still allies and we do not favor any war between both of our nations. French neutrality can be questioned, but ultimately it is a decision we must take. We might be overreacting, but then again, we must dare it.

Parliament in debate of French Neutrality:

The party of Front National is strongly pro-neutrality but is in favor of Russia. Due to overwhelming odds however, they will not support joining a war with Russia yet, they will only supply them and send secret paramilitary armies.

Parti Radical however is staunchly also pro-neutrality and would not support any side as of now, as they believe the will of the people demands it. Parti Radical also supports heavy rearmament and such.

As the Chinese Civil War has started, our economy has started to falter a little. This would force a industrialization of Southern France to make up for it, despite protests. 

French parliament debate on the collapse of the Greek government:

"At this turn of events, French people are more conscious of the French economy and will soon start a revolution if not treated well. Like Greece, the rest of Europe will follow if we don't make the right measures. We will start doing what is right for not only us but the French nation itself as well. We will encourage welfare capitalism to get rid of and prevent worst forms of poverty in our nation, increasing our workforce." The majority of the parliament accepted this request, although some were skeptical of this. 

  • Backstory: After Marine le Pen got elected, France got nationalized and thought independent by will is a greater option than being led by other superior nations. That tradition has been going on through the newly elected Parti Radical. Parti Radical is no longer the socialist and democratic path it once was before. It is now a national patriotic party with some far-right views with staunch neutrality.
  • Summary: In case of a war, we will side with NATO as it is confirmed by the Parliament of France. This might change however.
  • Military:
    • Technology: Project de Bonaparte is responsible for renovated Infantry equipment, vastly renovating the main Infantry and making it look more modern to this time period, and would be a time for new tactics to appear. Exoskeleton armor is also being researched.
      • Project de Bonaparte: This project is now only exclusive to France.
      • Quantum Technology: We are currently funding Quantum Technology, especially for Quantum computers.
      • Advanced Artillery Program: This is also being funded. The main purpose of the Advanced Artillery Program is to renovate the Artillery pieces we have and make them more feared by the enemy. The FRCdB-32 is built in with 1 artillery gun on top of the vehicle faced forwards up. 
    • Conflicts: We are not in any conflicts yet.
    • Preparing for War: The Maginot Line is under way, the Savoyard Line is cancelled and instead we will focus on rebranding our Navy.
  • Science and Technology
    • Space Program
      • General: The CNES, the national Space Program of France is conducting serious space exploration and is trying to land on the moon and prepare the funding for a landing to Mars, which would happen not very soon. 
      • Mars:
        • Aries Campagne: The Aries campaign is the main operation for a landing on Mars, it is currently being funded and there is no rocket yet to support this operation.
      • Moon:
        • de Gaulle Campagne: The de Gaulle campaign is responsible for the landing on the Moon, which also will not happen any time soon without proper funding as this is low priority.
    • The LASER Research: This is exclusive to only France, and we are trying to research the new FRCdB-32 (Français Char dBataille). This will be finished until 2035.
  • Infrastructure:
    • Cities: We are renovating the city of Paris, Marseille, Lyons, Bordeaux, Brest and Strasbourg to make them feel more modern in style and look more Gothic at the same time, which would make our nation feel traditional and encourage some tourism at the same time. This work is not done yet and mostly Paris has been done so far.
    • Urbanization: We are urbanizing small villages of France, also inheriting the modern and Gothic style architecture. 
    • Construction of Hyperloops: Construction of Hyperloops has started throughout the urban parts of France. The French "Autoroute" as it is nicknamed by infrastructure researchers, named after the German Autobahn. We are hoping that this project covers all of France, but that is impossible with the current economic situation.
    • Agriculture: Yields continue to grow, we are currently encouraging agriculture throughout southern France effectively rising our workforce in that region.
  • Government
    • Border controls: France is not willing to accept refugees of any nationality, and will only accept refuge to its own people. We are dispatching journalists in Ukraine to figure out what is going on there, so that we can know who to really support.
    • Political Parties: The Parti Radical is currently leading our nation, although Front National is barely tipping over the vote.
    • President: Mélanie Lucroy is our president.
  • Diplomacy: As a current member of the European Union, we would support anyone in the Union and expand our influence throught the world, and conduct good diplomatic relations with at least every nation in the world, except a few exceptions.
    • Greece: We will cease any support given to you and we will announce your state as illegitimate.
    • NATO: We are going to be staunchly neutral unless upmost neccessary.
    • Brazil: Good thinking, a way out of trouble indeed. We would like you to propose a trading company of our own, by the name of Juste de L'Atlantique. Waiting for response.
    • Turkey: We are going to protest against you if you take advantage of the Greek situation.
    • Ukraine: Do not try and release your own propaganda against us just because we are not supporting no one. As time goes by, we will decide. For now we are neutral by the will of the people.
    • United States: We are currently striving for neutrality, please respect this decision as the people is against war as many Frenchmen would only die for stability in the East, and not gaining anything but that.
    • United Kingdom: It is best not to intervene in this turn of events, just saying. Join our neutrality as well if you so wish.
    • Canada: We increase our relations due to your ruling party and government.
  • Education: Education is still top-notch and in mainland France, at least all of the people are able to read and write by hand. Overall literacy is around 100%, and is it expected that all children at the age of 3 would start going into education.
  • Demographics:
    • Population: The French population has risen throughout the years, with 69,2 million Frenchmen living in France.
    • Religion: The current demographics are 90% Roman Catholic (mostly in mainland), 2% Jewish, 3.6% Sunni and 4.4% unaffiliated.
      • The Catholic Church Communion of France: The Church denounces Islam and condemns people who use it as their religion.
  • Economy: The economy of France has been lowered due to recent events.
    • Fall 2033 Stock Crash: France has also been affected by this stock failure. French people nickname this crash as the "New Great Depression". Worker strikes have no arised yet so far, but the near future will decide France's fate. French people now conscious of this matter will start questioning of the legitimacy of the Parti Radical, and a small rise of the Front National party, a revanchist party not willing to be a tyrant to a larger power.

Federal Republic of the Philippines

  • Backstory : After the Federal Shift of 2020, the government has transitioned into a federal government. During the 2022 elections, the PDP Laban party won at 54.67%. This time Duterte’s daughter, Sara, became president. During her term she installed the Prime Minister role. The current PM is Alan Cayetano. She dissolved the VP rank. She also extended presidential terms by 2 years. The PM rank will be chosen by the people. After Sara’s term, Alan Cayetano took up the role and let his wife take the PM role.
    • Government: 
      • Federal Constitution of 2020 : Same rules from the previous constitution are installed. New rules are also implemented to make the FRP a modern and civilized state. The tax system is reformed in favor of the lower and middle classes. Major infrastructure programs are implemented throughout the country.
      • Anti-Poverty Program : As Duterte’s administration brought the poverty rate to 14%, Cayetano’s term will aim to bring it down to 6%. All provinces will undergo a mass modernization program. People in provinces will be sent to government-owned schools.
    • Military:
      • AFP Modernization Program : As the AFP Modernization Program of the past has ended, the government approves another program to combat growing threats. 1st Horizon will include the purchase of 45 MBTs, 125 AFVs, 100 IFVs, 15 SPGs, 10 MLRS, 35 towed artillery, and P455 million worth of infantry equipment. 2nd Horizon will include the purchase of 3 frigates, 2 ASW corvettes, 3 destroyers, 4 submarines, 3 minesweepers, and 10 patrol crafts. 3rd Horizon will include the purchase of 48 fighter aircraft, 60 multirole aircraft, 10 transport aircraft, 20 CUH helicopters, 10 attack helicopters, and 12 trainers.
      • Self-Reliance Program : State-owned industries have created local weaponry for the AFP. These companies will be producing some of the equipment for the modernization.
      • Operation Kabayo : The military has started a massive campaign against communist and Islamic rebellions. 10k troops will be used for the operation.
    • Economy:
      • Stock Crash : After the Chinese economy took a beating, the PH economy started to decline. GDP falls by 2.5%. The Philippine peso drops in value. Current exchange rate for the dollar is at an all-time low, $1 = P60.10.
      • Free Education and Needs Program : To increase literacy rate and decrease the number of malnutritioned families, the government has started a nationwide program to give free education and needs.
    • Research and Technology:
      • Wind Mills : To stop relying on gas or coal, the government has approved construction of wind mills in the windy areas of the FRP.
      • Solar Energy Power Plants  : Since the location of the FRP is near the equator, the FDSR has started research on solar energy power plants. These power plants will be able to give electricity to the whole country by using sunlight. Research will finish in 2-3 years.
      • Farming Robotics : The FDSR Zhas started research on farming robots that will help farmers get the job done. Research will finish in 1-2 years.
      • AWPM (Air and Water Purifier Machine) : Using nanotechnology, These machines will clean the polluted air and trash-filled waters. Research will finish in 1-2 years.
    • Diplomacy:
      • Bangladesh : We would accept refugees.
      • China : We support the Chinese government.
      • USA : Aye.

United States of America

  • Government
    • Inauguration of President Paul: On 20th January, President-elect Paul was inaugurated as the 47th President of the United States, replacing Elizabeth Warren. With the proportional vote system in place since February 2032 (also part of the backstory), Paul faces a potential scandal within the Republican Party that might lead to the downfall of their own party. The Libertarians are the largest third-party with the party having a minority seat in the Congress so far and that he doesn't want to make them the replacement of the nearly 200 year old party after winning out as one of the two parties, including the Democrats in every election.
    • Intervention against China: The Congress votes narrowly against intervening in China out of fears that supporting neo-Maoists would lead to another Cultural Revolution and supporting China would've meant that the President-For-Life would continue on ruling the country and not having democracy. Supporting Tibet and East Turkestan/Uyghurstan ((I prefer Uyghurstan, East Turkestan is biased and favours Russian imperialism in the Chinese region)) would also brand the US' reptuation by China as supporting insurgents but we should also maintain a good relationship with India as well. Other nations will get to decide whether they should intervene, for now the US is still watching at the closest eye should any changes happen.
  • Military
    • Military Budget Increased: President Paul passes next year's budget to have the military budget raised by 150% of this year's budget and mainly devote that towards researching into military technology such as better drone technology, insect-scale surveillance cameras and exoskeleton armour. Many fear that the post-default US economy and the ongoing so-called War Against Automation, along with excessive loaning once again would lead to a second default and an economic collapse from further funding the military for little purpose. One political commentator said the following: "Why are we increasing the budget of the military? The military is already large enough to handle on it's own maintenance. Cut it down."
    • Investment into Drone Technology and Exoskeleton Armour: The 150% increase of that budget goes to researching more technologies for the military next year. The said technologies are being researched of. The exoskeleton armour and insect surveillance camera projects are researched secretly, while drone technologies were revealed in the public, most of the known characteristics such as functional experimental parts (i.e. experimental quantum chips) that work through 3D printing remains secret.
    • Greece: The US government intervenes in Greece and publicly decided to support the old government - mainly because they have ties ever since Turkey tried to invade Cyprus in the early 2020s and the radical fascist/neo-nazi Golden Dawn members have suspicious ties with Russia. The Commmonwealth is also not a preferred choice for the United States despite many hoping that the US would support them due to their more social democratic elements within their own party, mainly because they might end their anti-Turkish sentiment once they take over the government and the US isn't willing to lose more land for Greece. This was also an attempt to increase their influence once again since their decline in the 2020s by letting Middle Eastern powers dominate in the Middle East rather than themselves. Over 30,000 soldiers were deployed into battle in the region, along with a 10-size fleet, including one aircraft carrier to distract any potential enemy.
  • Economy: Bad. The US also loans more money once again since the mid-2020s to keep the budget up.
    Fractured stock crash thingy
    • Fall 2033 Stock Crash: Both the Chinese and US stock markets crash in the fall of 2033 (or autumn 2033) as a result of the Chinese Civil War. As a result, unemployment rates soar to 25% within matter of weeks following from September to December 2033 since the year 2025, leading to the creation of the SSP signed by President Paul. Demonstrations of UBI protests by left-wing protesters also rapidly increased in major cities starting at December, calling for the Paul administration to pass a low UBI rate system of an estimated $20 per week at minimum to the unemployed. The UBI system failed to pass under President Warren due to uncertainty whether the economy of the US could handle it or who benefits and who doesn't (wealthy people are initially excluded in the second pending bill) and President Paul had anticipated the hope of tackling unemployment back to 10% at such an unrealistic rate through his own program.
    • Self-Sufficiency Program (SSP): Also by the name of Ryanomics by the media (similar to how Reaganomics was called upon), an unpopular program that is supposed to tackle unemployment and poverty that is rising in the United States through state welfare instead of applying a UBI system. State welfare ensures that there will be free medical services around the nation without the need of paying, but that also come at a high cost. The SSP is also encouraging companies not to further automate the industry and instead encourage laid-off employees to return and also invest into expanding domestic industry with labourers. But the unemployment rate remains 25% and the Second Automation Boom is about to happen soon which could raise the unemployment rate up to 32% to 35% within a matter of months of that boom, no matter how long the delay would be.
  • Research and Technology
    • Lunar Colony Plan: Many doubt this is going to happen, but NASA hasn't been receiving the necessary funding to establish a lunar colony due to an ongoing economic crisis that led to further budget cuts, meaning that an American lunar colony would be given up to SpaceX and other US-based private space companies as a result. SpaceX is seen to be heading towards a very ambitious project to launch a mining colony by 2040, something unrealistic that Elon Musk likes to go across but they have made a lot of use with reusable rocketry and better equipment over the last 15 years in development - so it might be possible, but with an ongoing economic crisis, probably this will take a while to get necessary funding.
    • Home™: Smart speakers are also gaining a lot of consumer popularity in the early 2030s since their introduction in the late 2010s, but they are controversial due to potential threats that intelligence organisations would gather data and use them when necessary, especially those manufactured/designed by other companies over other regions. Transparency in the United States is considered to be one of the worst by now.
    • Quantum Computers: It's still being invested and slowly commercialised, although economic funding hindered the project to transition this into a commercial product for most US companies to profit.
    • Automation of Workplace: With the turndown happening on a global scale, every company must turn towards automation. Machines that work fast enough are starting to take over much of the domestic industry of the US as it was proven to be cheaper to install and produce the same yield as a whole human worker team. Some turn to hydroponic farming and other not vulnerable jobs such as newly created jobs by the government to keep up with the increased rate of automation. Then suddenly on June 2033, a bill was proposed by President Paul to heavily regulate automation, artificial intelligence and robotics from further penetrating industrial-level jobs. The Congress, led by Democrats refused heavy regulation of robotics, saying that this would mean 'going back to an inefficient past'. Uncertainty of employment grows with the stock market crash by the end of the year with the upcoming Second Boom expected to happen somewhere in the mid-2030s, with new generation of machines working more harder than ever than their predecessors in the 2020s to lay even more jobs off from factories.
  • Diplomacy
    • Iranian Opposition/Republic Coalition of Iran: We would like to secretly aid you in the Iranian CIvil War to topple down the theocratic republican government. We won't give you any demands but we only want an open and good relations with you in condition to these terms so that we will fund and give you the necessary equipment and arsenal to fight against the regime.
    • China: We don't want to end up in a messy situation.
    • Chinese Rebels: We can't fund you minority groups because of China and that we have other concerns but we do support your cause of independence.
    • Greece: The US fully intervenes in Greece as Russian operations have being sighted in the Aegean Sea, including possible insurgents rising up in the region by sending in a fleet into the Mediterranean and also sending in thousands of troops into the frontline. Operatives in Greece also rapidly increased with agents disguised as Greek soldiers and trained for six months (this move sucks the most but this region is gold) moving into the war-torn region in uncovering other operations by Russia, Turkey and other powers' intents in the region, by ensuring that the old government remains in place through gaining an intelligence edge - they could keep the information they want until it's time to expose them, along with the Greek government being convinced that they are under constant threat and need protection. (More details on the military section)
    • Kazakhstan: We don't support or improve relationships with members of the Turkic Pact.
    • Israel: Being a monarchy is giving us a headache. (But ok but Big Brother keeps watching you if you try to be a monarchy)
    • Denmark: Your turn is gay.
    • Philippines: We watch you.
    • Switzerland: Nothing. Good.
    • Brazil: For God's sake (you never read my replies when it comes to me replying to your doorstep), we don't have any interest in expanding NATO into major powers like Brazil, we do potentially acept Mexico and smaller powers in the North American region but not you - it'll be like saying India should join NATO - but that isn't geographically sense and we don't allow major powers to become members asides from the US itself, i.e. me. We will only accept military alliances or a defensive pact with you. We could negotiate association status but not member of NATO.

Ukraine

  • Economy: GDP is still stagnating, but it seems to be starting growing faster. The main features of Ukrainian economy:
    • GDP growth rate is ~1% per year.
    • Lack of foreign investigations.
    • High level of corruption.
    • Brain drain.
    • Low economic development.
    • The unemployment rate is still high, 35.1%. It is falling, but not fast enough.
    • Breakdown of economic activities:
      • Primary sector: 26,4%

      • Quaternary sector: 1,9%
    • Specializes in metallurgy and agro-based industries
  • Demographics:
    • Population: 18 million people. The population is falling fast because of high mortality rate, small birth rate, and very big emigration. The population is falling at 0.9-1.1% every year. 52% are atheists/agnostics, 38% are orthodox, 6% are Catholics, Protestants, and Judaists. 4% are others.
  • Government: The government is still very corrupt and Ukraine is still an oligarchy. 2% of Ukrainians (94% of them are represented in a state machine) control 83% of the whole economy and 63% control only 6% of the economy. "New Front", a political movement for creating a new government and lustrating old one, is still taking off. It plans to create a new Ukraine, where all people can be heard and live together in peace despite all differences. People say that they can even win in the next elections in 2036.
  • Military: Ukraine is a highly militarized country because it has problems with Russia and Novorussia, but the equipment is pretty old. The Navy is almost destroyed due to lack of funding and needs quick modernization.
  • Diplomacy: Russophobic and pro-Western propaganda inside, supports EU and USA and denounces Russia. 
    • France: Don't you see Russia is a threat to EU? You must understand that.
    • Brazil: Thank you for denouncing Russia. ♥

Islamic Republic of Iran (Loyalist) | Republican Coalition of Iran (Opposition)

  • Government:
    • (Loyalist) 2033 Election and Election reformations : In 2028, Estafahni had sent reformations proposed for the election removing term limits in an effort to remain in power to defeat the rebels - to which he had a personal agenda for. He believed that "The war was started from me, so I want to end it". A shaken and divided legislative branch coalesced around this and passed the reformations. This was heavily criticized by many residents in Iran, who began to see increases in sympathy for rebels and opposition forces. The 2033 election resulted in the turnout of almost 61% of voters.  He won a fourth term, after winning 3 other elections in the past (2021, 2025, 2029). 
    • (Opposition) Division and Government Reforms: During the ceasefire that started back in 2031, most of the rebel forces united to form the Republican Coalition of Iran, an alliance/confederacy of rebel forces. By 2033, they had successfully held its first elections shortly after forming the "Federal Republic of Iran" (but still kept RCI in respect to non-gov rebel forces). Unsurprisingly, Goli Yasmin Sarrans won the election, making her the first Female President of Iran (if the federal gov. wins). However, despite this election. There are still many divisions from the loose coalition of rebel forces. Kurds, for example, are wildcards - despite being part of the government, they mostly act on their own accord. Human rights abuses generate tension within the rebel government when Kurdish soldiers targeted ethnic Persian/Iranian citizens.
  • Military:
    • Land Force: 
      • Reg. Infantry: 1,270,000 (280,000 Reserves) (Loyalist), 580,000 (+ 860,000 Rebel allies) (Opposition)
      • Tankforces: 600 tanks (Loyalist), 200 tanks (Opposition)
      • Mobile forces: 1,800 vehicles (Loyalist), 1,300 (Opposition)

      • Bombers: 30 (Loyalist), 8 (Opposition)
      • Un-manned: 180 (Loyalist), 225 (Opposition)
    • Conflicts
      • Iran Civil War: Since early 2031, after much bloodshed and stalemates, the Opposition and Loyalist Governments had agreed for a ceasefire (but only between them). Wanting to join in too, the other rebel groups gradually joined the opposition government to take advantage of the peace to recuperate as well (including the Kurds, who joined for various reasons, and was promised independence). Knowing that they could not win the war at this rate, not without help. However, the ceasefire may be broken soon as the rebels plan for a dangerous campaign across Iranian fields.
  • Economy:
    • Both sides have a wartime economy. Although, the Opposition forces are more hurt by the recent recession due to foreign companies and other funds having more trouble giving weapons and supplies needed to fight.
  • Diplomacy: Iran declined in self-reliance and sufficiency against infringing western elements. Which saw popularity amongst the rebels. Since 2029, Iran had declined in being a major player within the Middle-east, but is important enough to have a large impact.
    • (Opposition to) USA: Of course.
    • (Opposition to) Saudi Arabia: We are not sure, many of us aren't Arabian nor came from the Arabian peninsula. Accepting this immediately would generate some tension between us. We would be pretty okay with being an observer state. Would that suffice?

State of Japan

  • Government
    • Reelection of Ichihara Nobuo: On January 15, 2033, Ichihara Nobuo is once again elected as the Prime Minister of Japan. Into late January, he is accused of economic fraud and rigging the election by a President of the Conservative Party of New Japan, Hanamura Daisuke, a smaller successor party to the Liberal Democratic Party, which fell apart before the Technocrats' rise to power, which leads to investigation, eventually pushing back his plans. After the investigation finishes, which comes to the conclusion that the remains of the ultranationalist groups were the ones who supported it, but because of a miscalculation it was revealed. Hanamura Daisuke and the power figures inside his party flee the country.
    • Chinese Civil War: The major parties of the National Diet are called into a meeting regarding the Chinese Civil War that broke out, as the changes in China could have a major impact on Japan in the long run. The Japanese Technocratic Party and the ruling Japanese New Hope party voted in favor of maintaining the status quo for now; the Technocratic Party of Sapporo and the Party for Japanese Revival voted for supporting the insurgents, but not intervening directly; while the Party for Japanese Restoration voted for entering China directly. In the end, Japan decided to wait and see what will happen to China.
  • Military
    • Military budget: Despite a major stock market crash and economic crisis, the military budget of Japan haven't decreased, as Japan sees the escalation and future end of the Chinese Civil War a major factor of Japan's future. The military budget is even slightly increased, mainly towards technological advancement. However, automation is not the focus despite focusing on technology, and is considered one of the employment safehaven that is not being considered fully automated.
    • Military expansion: Apart from going into research, the military budget expansion goes into expansion of military personnel using cutting-edge technology as well as recruiting people into the cyber department of the military, alleviating some problems regarding unemployment because of the stock crash.
    • Technological progress: The exoskeleton-suit currently used by the army is slowly being replaced with the new X-7 suit that came out this year, while estimates put the new Japanese fighter being released next year.
    • North Korea: Japanese troops in North Korea are focusing more on defense on the Chinese border and are increasing alertness because of the Chinese Civil War, however no major action is taken. (( I don't know if I have troops stationed in NK, but I assume as I participated in it, I do mostly in the form of military bases.
    • Somalia: Japan decides to intervene in the Somalian insurgency and publicly supports the federal government in eradicating the rebels. The Japanese Navy residing in Djibouti starts to help the Somalian fleet and Japan sends 10,000 troops to help train the Somalia army as well as help them restore the situation. (( I assume Somalia accepted my proposal, if not, don't mind this part. ))
  • Economy
  • 2033 stock crash: As the Chinese and U.S. stock market crash, the Japanese stock market is also affected, but as many emerging companies (from the Technocrats' era emerging) chose to stay private, especially the cultural ones, the Japanese market was not as affected as China and the United States, and many Japanese pulled out from China long before the Civil War and dissidents started. The Japanese investment in other parts of Asia and Africa weren't affected as their stock market are similar to the early stages of the Chinese stock market. Instead, Japanese companies chose to use the 2033 stock crash as an opportunity to expand in other parts of Asia and Africa, especially Africa.
  • Research and Technology
    • Lunar colony: Because of the 2033 stock crash, the 2034 finish for the first Japanese lunar colony is postponed until a later time, not because of inability to fund it, but because of the stock crash possibly having a larger impact than expected. The project still continues, but there's a large possibility that finishing it will be postponed until 2036.
    • Cleanup of waste in Nagoya: No action is taken, but a larger nuclear research group regarding nuclear waste removal is launched, but still with no results.
    • Quantum technology: Apart from private companies, the country is also heavily investing in it, but there are still no large commercial application, only government use for testing.
    • Mars exploration: After the possible success of the lunar mission, JAXA plans to relaunch its Mars mission.
    • Railgun and laser technology: Domestic railgun technology has begun its first testing, while laser research project is started to see other possibilities apart from railguns.
  • Diplomacy
    • United States of America: As regaining our allied position, Japan believes that we should discuss the issue of the further escalation (if it escalates) of the Chinese Civil War.
    • Federal Somalia: See Military > Somalia. Investment in territories owned by the federal government is increased, mainly regarding cultural industries with a plan of creating a film base in Somalia.
    • East African Community: Japan will increase its investment in the EAC starting this year. We also believe that the EAC should launch a conference to start its integration, and if it is done so, Japan will help with some of the problems.
    • South African Community: Japan will increase its investment, and will acquire some companies from the SAC.
    • Arabian Union: As a growing power in your region, Japan believes we should further cooperate with each other, as there are greater benefits for both of us because of it in the future.
    • West African Community: Japan plans to enter the West African Community's market by large this year, also investing in local companies


2034

Shattered 2034

Ecuador experiences civil strife as the recession hits the nation hard. Reports detail the apparent build-up of Peruvian forces on the Ecuador-Peru border.

Xi Jinping speaks out against the nations of the world, who turn a blind eye to the fighting taking place in some of the most densely populated cities in the world. A large defensive perimeter is created by the Chinese government to prevent the spread of neo-Maoist control in areas still largely under government control. Meanwhile, Hong Kong and Macau take advantage of the situation and declare independence under a temporary joint administration. This is meant for defense against both the rebels and government. Pro-Turkestani militants take various cities in Xinjiang. Russian forces are seen fighting alongside Chinese government forces in several cities.

Somalia accepts the support from Japan. They decide that after they win the civil war, they will join the East African Community.

Britain, Spain, and Germany speak out against the United States for supporting socialist forces in Greece who are specifically attacking Greek Commonwealth and NATO forces.

Oman, Bahrain, South Yemen, North Yemen, and Jordan vote to create the Arabian Space Agency.

Albania, Kosovo, Sandzak, Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Tunisia refuse to join MEMO. Libya, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, and Turkestan join MEMO. Albania, Kosovo, and Sandzak support Epirus.

Greece surrenders to Macedonian forces. Crete surrenders to the National Front. Macedonia creates a new government, Thessaly, out of the old Greek territories.

Macedonia, Epirus, and Thessaly do not join the Turkic Pact, but continue to work closely with them.

Bulgaria refuses to sell Burgas to Turkey, due to the severe economic implications this move would have, as well as furthering civil unrest in their nation.

Hungary agrees to join the Turkic Pact as an observer state.

Azerbaijani militants rise up in Iran, against both the opposition and the current government. This creates massive strains due to the current ceasefire. Many worry that this move will break the ceasefire. A senior Azerbaijani militant official is captured by the Opposition forces, and it is revealed that Azerbaijan is supporting them. Due to this, Armenia announces their support for the opposition and joins the Russian Union State for protection.

Kurdistan joins the Arabian Union and declares official support for the Opposition, urging them to do the same.

Ethiopia enters negotiations to join the East African Community. The EAC debates whether they should help the Arabian Union militarily intervene in favour or the Somali government.

Zambia joins the South African Community. Mozambique and Angola are now considering whether they should join.


Ukraine

  • Economy: Usually GDP is still stagnating and seems to be starting growing faster, but because of economic crisis, the economy is in even worse condition, than before. The main features of Ukrainian economy:
    • GDP growth rate is usually ~1% per year (This year: -24,7%).
    • Lack of foreign investigations.
    • High level of corruption.
    • Brain drain.
    • Low economic development.
    • Because of massive economic crisis, the unemployment rate is higher, than never before - 58,6%. 
    • Breakdown of economic activities:
      • Primary sector: 24,2%
      • Secondary sector: 25,8%
      • Tertiary sector: 48,6%

The population is falling at 0.3-0.7% every year. 52% are atheists/agnostics, 38% are orthodox, 6% are Catholics, Protestants, and Judaists. 4% are others.
  • Government: The government is still very corrupt and Ukraine is still an oligarchy. 2% of Ukrainians (94% of them are represented in a state machine) control 91% of the whole economy and 68% control only 3% of the economy. 
    • "New Front", a political movement for creating a new government and lustrating old one, is taking off bigger, than before. It plans to create a new Ukraine, where all people can be heard and live together in peace despite all differences. They support "The Third Way" (do not confuse with fascism) - Being neither pro-Western not pro-Russian and search for maximum profit between both.
    • In 2034, "New Front" is still building many headquarters around Ukraine and a few outsides.
    • "New Front" members have filmed 4 documentary films about the corruption system in the Ukrainian government. 
    • 5 major rallies were started during this year, 2 of them because of big impact of economic crisis.
  • Military: Ukraine is a highly militarized country because it has problems with Russia and Novorussia, but the equipment is pretty old. The Navy is almost destroyed due to lack of funding and needs quick modernization.
  • Diplomacy: Russophobic and pro-Western propaganda inside, supports EU and denounces Russia.

United States of America

  • Government: Bold are the most important ones in the map game.
    • Antifa-Alt-Right Clashes: The times of an economic crisis and polarisation came to play here. Far-left anarchists, along with communists and white supremacists clash in southeastern United States and even Detroit itself, which was increasingly impoverished in the early-mid 2030s. Hundred thousands were arrested during this violent battlefield that lasted for few days. Many are calling the end of the United States as we know it as the NSM leader called for white supremacists to rise up when the appropriate time comes. (Soon, the US will collapse into a civil war in the late 2030s, I'm starting this up first, when the Democrats win the election in 2036 as spoilers, their chance to support the Commonwealth if the civil war continued is too late)
      War Profiteers

      "The US government profits from supporting the Communist Greeks."

    • Socialists/Communists Praising US Support for the Greek Civil War: Socialist Party USA spokesperson and co-chair leader Samuel Beverly said that "the US government did the right thing" but is widely criticised by the majority and people, who protest against Paul's decision to support the communists. "We are a democracy, how come we have the commies being supported and not our own democratic friends [Greek Commonwealth]?" Some are raising concerns that Ryan's goal was to create a self-interest of benefitting the US itself and leaving other nations to waste by supporting unusual allies by being fully isolated and self-reliant while corruption as he promised isn't cracked down at all after the bill to order US soldiers to drop out of the Greek Civil War. It could be the largest crisis since Watergate (and Trump) and a polarising point for US politics to take place.
    • 2034 Midterms: The Senate is given up to the Democrats once again in the midterms as Ryan's reputation and the Republicans decline significantly as a result of supporting communists, giving them big leverage to swiftly repeal Ryan's decision to support the communists but there's still a bill that has to be passed by the House of Representatives which is Republican-majority where they decided to refuse to have all US soldiers withdrawn from the Greek front and 'never intervene again', leaving it to the hands of Europeans to handle it and to appease them. Many Democrats are outraged when Ryan announced he would run for a second term after this bill failed to pass but polls suggest Ryan is at gaining 29% projected voters compared to a generic Democrat.
  • Military
    • The Greek Civil War: 40,000 extra soldiers and a fleet of some 19 ships were sent into the front to support the communists - regardless of relationship and ideological type. However all US soldiers are suddenly being ordered by local generals despite getting reinforcements to only focus on National Front militia after becoming no longer confident communist motives to fight all sides rather than being against the National Front and negotiate peace with them after insight by intelligence showing militia groups led by SYRIZA killing German and British troops in the Battle of Amaliada inside US makeshift camps. Thus these generals have decided to only support them against the National Front and only provide training to the communists to crack down these fascist militia. Many Democrats still pointed out that it doesn't help how NATO is going to react though because the US are still supporting the communists in an extent. Paul also used the Turkish accusation method used during Warren's administration at one point that the Commonwealth is aided by Turkey publicly as well due to their "intention to join and become observer member of the Turkic Pact" to further make anti-Turkish sentiment within the general population but it isn't that effective.
    • Military Technology: Handheld railguns are also on research.
  • Economy
    • The Great Recession (2033-present): The Great Recession continues, with high unemployment rates reaching 25% to 30% in average last year. Ryan decided to domestically tackle jobs through expansion of industry but because the Second Automation Boom had already started by the end of this year, unemployment is expected to reach 32%, even more dangerous as usual. Failed regulation processes had led to Ryan encouraging more to volunteer and join the military to slow down next year's dangerous unemployment rate while the universal basic income protests continue to be ignored in most aspects. A second proposed bill was being conceptualised by the Democrats should they become government again.
  • Research and Technology
    • SpaceX's Lunar/Martian Plan: Since NASA can't do much anymore last year after a major economic slump and the Congress is more interested in the military and welfare, SpaceX and other smaller US private companies have decided that they would 'control essentially US operations in space'. Then came NASA in mid-2034. NASA proposed that they would be allowed to independently operate but they would also want to assist any operations to reduce the time from the scheduled establishment of a Lunar colony in 2040 to 2038. SpaceX somehow accepted this deal but only if they get equipment and few men into space by that year said by NASA, which became even more unrealistic and ambitious. Then they also want to be the first organisation/company to put a man on Mars by 2043, unlike Elon Musk's proposed 2024 plan which went all wrong back then.
    • Quantum Computer Technology: Still trying to commercialise this beauty.
    • AI development: Some of the money allocated by the US government has gone into researching artificial intelligence that can 'learn' certain subjects. No-one knows how it'll be developed or what the US government's purpose but they are trying to achieve assistance in developing more technologies but at the same time try to minimise the impact of employment from AI handling certain aspects.
    • Virtual Reality Training Simulator: To improve military quality in training, military generals have proposed to developers to build an extensive military training simulator that soldiers would see them almost indistinquishable from reality. They would be subjected to lessons that would happen on the occasion every seven hours (per two days) out of the 150 to 250 hour work (depending on which service they're on) before being prompted by tests, according to an anonymous source. It is scheduled to finish by the end of 2036 and will only be exclusive to the US military itself.
  • Diplomacy
    • Europe: Our own interest in this war is to get rid of the Golden Dawn fascists and we need that sufficient number of troops to rid of them. However, the United States somehow made themselves even more divided with Europe, with relationships declining rapidly.
    • Italy: If you hate Turkey so much like me, then you should've exerted pressure to refrain your backed Greek Commonwealth to become observer member. Because I fear Turkey will have the Commonwealth become observer member. ((Note we only accused Turkey of having motives of taking advantage in Greece, so we don't have any confirmation of doing so asides with breakaway nations making ties))
    • People's Coalition: You should've made peace with the Commonwealth - you are literally on life support because they are supported by those with high-quality equipment and better training, we will only aid you against the National Front from now on and nothing more.
    • Commonwealth: Yeah, well sorry to break your "the US will support us because we're a democracy" bubble, we can't support you in any way. We will only come to fight together against fascists.
    • Turkey: We accuse you of supporting the Commonwealth and have motives of spreading your influence into Greece to "forge a claim that we can't support the Commonwealth" by having Epirus, Thessaly and Macedonia become members, with the new Greek Commonwealth becoming observer along sending in "suspected settlers" as evidenced by the rise of Sandzhak.
    • Iranian Opposition: Despite backlash in Greece, the United States decided to do 'the right thing' by secretly funding the Iranian opposition to depose the ruling of the theocracy with more equipment than the PC in Greece. But that doesn't help the reputation of US-European/Canadian relations at all.
    • People in the US protesting against the support of the People's Coalition: We decide to ignore your pleas for the US to support the Commonwealth. (Inserting a middle finger)

Islamic Republic of Iran (Loyalist) | Republican Coalition of Iran (Opposition)

  • Government:
    • (Loyalist) Pincer attack on rebels: Seeing new motivation from the Azeri rebels leaving the Opposition, the Loyalist government was quick to respond. Justifying the Rebels' "massacre" of Azeris in order to attack and "liberate" the peoples living under the Opposition's discorded grip. The Loyalist forces launched a pincer attack back moving along the coastlines North and South in order to defeat the rebels and attempting to avoid a spill-over of the war into neighboring countries.
    • (Opposition) Azerbaijani Rebels leave the Opposition: Tensions with several forces of the Azeri Rebels has caused a small fight between the Opposition and the Azeri. It did not help when the fight was coupled with propaganda calling victories of Opposition over rebel forces "slaughter." This has caused a wedge between the Azeri forces that joined the Opposition. Soon after, most of the Azeris has walked out of the alliance, saying that they "lose faith" in the new government and wishes to join another one. Relations with Azerbaijan has fell apart in the process as well however.

2035

Due to the surrounding geography of the Xinjiang province, government forces focus on sieging rebel-held cities rather than attacking directly. The People's Republic of China accuses Turkestan of supplying these rebels via the border the two nations share. Ecuador has declared martial law following riots occuring in the capital of Quito. Independent news sources also detail the occupation of southern towns by Peruvian armed forces, but this is unconfirmed. Malawi joins the South African Community.
