    FlyingDutchie, we can't trust South Africa. If you are so ''anticolonial'', keep in mind that South Africa is not land of native Africans. Why shall we give lands of Mittelafrika to other tyrants? If you like Sotuh Africa so much, it is best way to anex them into Mittelafrika. No deals with puppets of Entente!
    South Africa is not a part of the Entente in Kaiserreich, furthermore it has gone through some remarkable developments in this game. We prefer strong allies over 'annexing' countries that aren't hostile to us.

    African revival, trouble abroad

    Gentlemen, welcome to the Reichstag. Fortunately, I have more good than bad news today. If you ignore the fact that we are on the brink of war with the Arab League and that there are approximately one million Syndicalist soldiers stationed near our borders, things are looking pretty good!


    First things first, production. As ordered by the Ministry of Defence, our military was expanded yet again. Over 22 new infantry divisions have been trained since the new government came into office, now adding to a grand total of 90 divisions or roughly 860.000 armed personnel at home, and another 24 divisions abroad.


    The Namibia deal was closed, to much protest of the opposition. As promised, South-Africa underwent a federal restructuring after receiving control of the new territory, granting broad autonomy to the German settlers there. As a gesture of goodwill, they appointed Otto Weissman, a former of our colonial soldiers and veteran from the Weltkrieg, as Governor of the Namibian State of South-Africa




    But as it soon became clear, the South-Africans got more than they had bargained for. Namibia's inclusion in the Muller plan and the general idea that a European superpower is now openly backing independence for the peoples of Africa has led to a massive continent-wide national reawakening. The chain of events that followed were rapid, and had far-reaching consequences.


    For one, the African reawakening sparked a wave of protests in the occupied cities of National France, and reports are coming in the Algerian and Tunisian natives are forming separatist movements aimed at driving out the French. These African freedom fighters call themselves the 'Tuareg Confederation'. They are great in numbers, although they lack organisation and it is still to be seen what they can accomplish in the future.

    Unfortunately, the government's final decision to push through the Muller plan and the trial of Goering going on at the moment flooded the bucket of the French in Africa: The Royalist Entente have now officialy broken all ties with us and our allies, and as we speak the French and Canadian embassies are being closed down in Berlin. Ah well, it's not like those leftovers of states we defeated had anything we needed, isn't it?


    After this, Our foreign ministry confirmed that South-Africa indeed revoked the military access of the Canadians. We did not now back then the breaking with the Entente and the African reawaking were shaking the country to it's core in a matter of days.


    I could give you an intricate report on how the so-called 'Tulips revolution' in South-Africa went through, but it is a complex multi-ethnicity matter that dates back many years and took a 180 degree spin in just a few days. Explaining this to you would take days, if not weeks, so let's just keep it to the basics: The Africans have now claimed democratic sovereignity over the nation, broken with it's former colonial masters -Being the Royal British, the Canadians- and South-Africa has joined our alliance.


    Besides that, our new colonial governor has arrived in Mittelafrika and is beginning the democratisation process as we speak. If the Muller plan goes well, we hope to have Mittelafrika transformed into a federal sovereign African republic under an African Prime Minister in four years time, by 1940. And of that rat Goering, well, let justice decide over his fate.


    Report on the Abwehr. As you gentlemen undoubtedly now, this is secret information that should not leave the Reichstag under any circumstances. Our foreign agents have laid contacts with the Indonesian separatist movements and are uniting them in a nationwide movement under the anti-colonial partisan Muhammed Hatta. The original plan was to go with Sukarno, but he was distrusted by the DNVP members of the government. Aside from that, the anti-syndicalist Dutch colonials there seem willing to cooperate with our cause, if of course we hold our end of the bargain: Autonomy for them, allowing them to maintain their economic monopolies, and free evacuation to our Singapore territories for any tradesmen that wish to leave the country. If everything goes well gentlemen, with arms we will supply, Colonial money and the plight of the Indonesian separatists, we will be able to spark a revolution to throw the Syndicalists out of Indonesia and establish a German-Friendly regime there.

    Aside from that, we have stationed 30 divisions near our border with the Netherlands, which should be ample to overrun the country with support of Flandern-Wallonien in the South. If the Dutch find out our plans and decide to intervene, we attack.



    new allies. By decree of the Foreign Ministry, The Italian union and the Ottoman Empire have both joined our alliance and are safe from Syndicalism. I think you all know what this means: By siding with the ottomans we are now directly facing the Arab League. The rest of the Internationale, luckily, remains silent on the matter after their condemnation of the League.


    Following to the government's ordered intervention plan in case of a war with the Arab League, Hochseeflotte A, led by the SMS Boelcke, has arrived in Crete carrying with it 100.000 soldiers ready for a possible invasion of Egypt. Besides that, dozens of Ottoman divisions are currently crossing the Suez channel and lining up against the border with Egypt. Let us hope everything goes well...

    To close off, a strange chain of events to our East.



    By inquiry of the government, several Abwehr operatives were sent into the Soviet Union to judge the strength of the White opposition there and the possibility for funding a counter-revolution against the Bolsheviks in the future. But, as we soon came to find out, it wasn't even nessecary.


    The constant uprisings of White generals in the Siberian area loosened the grip of the Soviet Union on that area severely. In response, the military regime in Japan promptly launched a full-scale invasion of the Soviet Union in order to claim Siberia for it's own. Our ministries were in panick, but before anyone was able to send any order the intervention was already over.


    We are still trying to figure out what the hell happened there, but the basic information we have right now tells us the Soviet government showed up in Tokyo only a week after the start of the invasion with surrender documents. With a small army stretched all over Russia and basically no fighting force at their Pacific Coast, Stalin took the bitter decision of surrendering the entire area immediately, to great joy of the Japanese who are now enthousiastically routing out the White uprising they inherited in their new Northern Resource Territories.


    What does this mean for us? Well, unfortunately none of this is good news. What we have now is a resurgent Japanese Empire with access to Siberia's resources in order to fund it's war machine, and the burning desire to destroy our Qing friends in Asia and take the continent for themselves.

    The Soviet Union is beaten and humiliated, but far from defeated. In fact, they had little IC in Siberia and still have ample resources to spend so despite the massive territory loss, they haven't weakened much. The surrendered territories housed most of the White opposition which are now being exterminated by a much stronger Japanese counterinsurgency force, and the USSR has managed to take control of it's remaining lands, so there is no hope for overthrowing the regime now. Our agents in Moscow inform us the USSR has started a massive military expanse plan intent on raising the largest infantry army the world has ever seen. Unfortunately, very little has changed: Russia is still very big, very armed, and very angry.


    My last report is even more depressing. Syndicalism has struck within our Austrian allies to the South. The economic recession has now hit Vienna hard, and Syndicalist movements seem to be popping up from everywhere contesting the government's rule and vowing to exterminate the royal family and establish - how else? - a state of the workers. We have been unable to open contact with the Austrian government because in a panic move, they sealed off their borders tight, breaking all relations with all outside states.


    The situation is bad. With Austria in shambles, the balkan nations afilliated to it are experiencing problems aswell: Yugoslavian pan-nationalists have risen up in Croatia and Serbia and are defeating the weak governments every step of the way. Hungary, on it's part, decided to act autonomously from it's Austrian masters and just kicked all Austrian forces out of the Magyar Empire while heavily guarding the borders with Austria. Hungarian diplomats have arrived asking for Germany's support and protection if things in Austria go bad. The situation is chaotic, so I am afraid I have no more info on anything: Strength of the government, size of the partisan forces, nothing.


    Austria is a fortress, I could give you a more detailed report on the moon right now.

    That is all gentlemen. As you might have noticed, there are no files on your desks at the moment as we will stall sending you new issues untill we have more information on the ongoing situation. There is still the matter of Goerings trial, and the usual debates between the opposition and the government.

    I call this meeting adjourned. Long live the Kaiserreich!

    Issues facing the cabinet

    Due to the uncertain nature of the current political scene, we have no issues to put forth to the Cabinet for the time being. The unresolved past issues are still valid.

    -----------


    The next game update (the last one before intermission) is a direct follow-up on this update so we're not putting out more decisions for the time being. We would like to know a final agreement on Goering's fate for the next update though.

    We repeat our inquiry before the update: Mittelafrika should start changing names and national symbols (ie get a new flag)

    Also, we beefed SA economically: It now has 41 base IC (MA has 42), so our African allies are now a force to be reckoned with.

    Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development

    The events of the first few months of 1936 have demonstrated that economic globalization is real and present. No longer can any country engaged in international trade and finance expect to be isolated from the events and decisions that take place abroad. The economic crisis that originated in Germany has affected countries and people across the world and demonstrates the immediate and pressing need for economic cooperation between countries. To that effect on this May 10th 1936 the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development is hereby established by Germany, the Italian Federation, La Plata, Bolivia, Finland, the United Baltic Duchy, Ukraine, Lithuania, White Ruthenia, Galicia, Flandern-Wallonien, and South Africa.


    Objectives

    The Organization will serve as a setting in which member countries can compare policy experiences, seek answers to common problems, identify good practices, and co-ordinate domestic and international policies. Specifically, the goal of the Organization is to promote policies that achieve the highest sustainable economic growth and employment and a rising standard of living in, while maintaining financial stability, and thus contribute to the development of the world economy.


    Member Country Commitments

    The member countries of the Organization commit to coordinating economic policy and to adhering to good economic practices. Specifically, member countries commit to:

    1. Maintain a strong fiscal position through surplus or balanced budgets, reserving debt-financed spending for extraordinary and temporary measures;
    2. Remove all tariffs, duties, and impediments on the transfer of goods and movement of capital between member states;
    3. Maintain a flexible exchange rate between the currencies of all member states, reserving intervention in foreign exchange markets for extraordinary circumstances;
    4. Remove all price controls and subsidies and allowing the to allocate resources in the most efficient manner possible, without undue political intervention;
    5. Privatize and divest from non-essential and non-security enterprises and removing politically sanctioned monopolies in potentially competitive markets.


    Support for Member Countries

    The Organization will provide assistance for member countries that are facing serious financial and economic difficulties. The goal of the assistance is to minimize the immediate impact of a financial or economic crisis and to reduce the risk of another crisis going forward. To this end the Organization will use its collective economic security to provide the necessary assistance to a member country with temporary relief. In addition, the Organization will provide all member countries with funding for economic development projects that promote sustainable economic growth and employment, increasing standard of living, and financial stability.

    The government only uses such machinations against non-democratic forces. We do not and will not intervene with democratic elections. The government will act to safeguard the German elections, keeping them German.

    The Abwehr is not an instrument to force democracies to act like we want. We use it to gain information and assist our friends around the world in resisting all non-democratic forces.

    OOC: I post the Abwehr orders in this format at the request of TRP, so everyone knows what the government is doing at this front. The Top Secret, banner signifies the fact that the operation is covert in the eyes of the public and the world.

    Social Ministry Educational Reform Act;

    -Germany is already educating great minds, and should continue on the same track. Math and science remain important subjects.

    -However mind isn't the only thing the German youth need. Body and Soul also must be carefully developed. Therefore the Social Ministry is presenting a Body and Soul program for the Secondary School.

    Body;
    - Increase in Physichal education imminent for the German youth.
    -It's time for an healthier German generation, let's make a strong German future
    -Implementing a Compulsory Track and Field program for boys and a Dance/Gymnastic program for girls in Secondary School.

    Soul:
    - A healthy soul is as important for the German youth.
    -The lack of understanding of culture is a worrying pattern.
    -Implementing compulsory Cultural Studies, where great German classic artists, authors, philosophers ans musicians are studies, to develop a healthy German soul.

    And how, pray tell, does this explain German intervention in Dutch Indonesia and the marshalling of the Abwehr on the Germano-Dutch border?

    If the Abwehr is not "an instrument to force democracies to act like we want", why are we using them to exert force against the Netherlands when a majority of their population has called for and accepted Syndicalism?

    Despite your claims, you are utilising German military strength to manipulate and intimidate any and all nations that have dared to commit the crime of adopting an ideology you disagree with.

    Your government has even chosen to back the archaic and autocratic Ottoman Empire over the Arab League for this very reason - as exemplified by the increase in German forces stationated in Suez.

    If the Imperial-Centre coalition ran on a platform of advocating democracy above all else. Apparantly, the centrists and the conservatives only agree with democracy when it produces results favourable to them.

    Arrrrrrgh, what a mess! And I wanted only great united Africa.




    How could South Africa betray Entente? What if they do the same with us?

    Very sad end of negotiations. My case about Africa is closed now. And about USA: They will never cooperate, did you realy forget that Germany took their economic domination?

    We all know that the Netherlands where ruled by a democratically elected conservative government under Colijn. A vast majority of the electorate consists of arch conservative protestant and catholic voters. The current regime seized power, it wasn't elected. We will act to bring democracy back.

    Despite your claims, you are utilising German military strength to manipulate and intimidate any and all nations that have dared to commit the crime of adopting an ideology you disagree with.
    We are simply using options other that fullblown invasion to assist democratic forces in the world. By doing so we are keeping true to our democratic principles and are defending Germany against the syndicalist revolution currently destroying liberty and democracy.

    Your government has even chosen to back the archaic and autocratic Ottoman Empire over the Arab League for this very reason - as exemplified by the increase in German forces stationated in Suez.
    We chose the modernizing Ottomans over the syndicalist states invading it.

    If the Imperial-Centre coalition ran on a platform of advocating democracy above all else. Apparantly, the centrists and the conservatives only agree with democracy when it produces results favourable to them.
    See above. We are defending democracy, instead of either rushing to war ill prepared or letting us be swallowed by the revolutions around us.

    Evade the question in favour of slandering the opposition?

    How typical.

    In case it may have escaped you, the German Leftist parties recently affirmed that they would adhere to the constraints of the democratic political system and work within them to bring about change (see the announcement of the ABNB-UGSA merger).

    The fact is, for all your populist prattle, you have explicitly displayed how much you hold democracy in contempt. You use military force in lieu of dialogue. In spite of your anti-war platform, the government has engineered such a situation that global warfare is becoming all but inevitable.

    The Dutch nation is stable and secure. There is no possible way that a Syndicalist party could seize and maintain power without popular support.

    Then what is the Abwher doing on the Dutch border and in Suez, then?

    So by backing the autocratic Ottomans over the Arab League, we are "defending democracy", and by moving our forces onto the Egyptian and Dutch borders, we are not "rushing to war"?

    I could say the same of you, since that was your favorite tactic during the 1936 elections. Again. Why is it ok for you, but no one else?

    [sarcasm]Wow, you got us there. We so set up hostile Syndicalist revolutions worldwide that used violence and bloodshed to get their goals, caused the stock market to collapse, etc etc. Yeah, all of that so we can go into a war with multiple fronts, using a military that's stretched out and in need of upgrades and reinforcement. [/sarcasm]

    Really? We're taking appropriate measures to protect Germany from what is a worldwide conspiracy that uses violence to completely overturn society.

    The Syndicalism crimes all around the world put the whole German nation in jeopardy. The only way to protect our Reich from the greedy Syndicalists are offense, taking them out one after another before they can attack us.

    Just to test the waters: the Timmie0307-plan (we really need a new name) assures Mittelafrika stays German, the native population will slowly be introduced to self government. The opposition can be assured that Afrika will remain in the German sphere of influence. The German settlers will be respected and we keep the influx of African goods.

    TRP have requested a new name and flag after the reconstruction.

    We propose Bundesrepublik Afrika. The name signifies the connection with Germany and our restructurement of the colonies internal government.

    This is our proposed flag:



    Green, white and yellow are colours commonly associated with Africa, the German flag in the corner shows our connection.
    The weapon in the center shows the German eagle and the African elephant.

    This is a final warning. Discuss with respect and civility. If we have to make one more mod post in this AAR, it will be the last one as it will be closed. It has gone on too long and with too many reminders from us and TRP. I will not single anyone out right now because there are too many of them. Yesterday's discussion was perfectly fine. Today's not so much - moving right back into the snark and sarcasm that has been specifically discouraged. If you cannot discuss with respect and civility, then do not post again in this AAR.

    We've said it time and again- we want to see this AAR succeed. But we are really, really tired of having to remind the participants to behave like adults. That type of behavior may fly in other forums, but it does not in AARland. Enough.

    Again - this is the last warning, folks.

    That flag unfortunatly violates some "rules" of flagmaking.
