    July - December 1862

    Europe


    In the British Isles, the Irish Rebellion finally pulls together and drafts a Declaration of Independence, proclaiming full independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. In drafting a Constitution, a Spanish Prince offers his services as King of Ireland, where he is then mobbed, beaten, and killed by a group of drunk Irishmen. The Prince's body is unceremoniously thrown into Dublin harbour as the new United Republics of Ireland is proclaimed on August 4th, 1862. [Ireland now a US-Style Republic. The nation consists of thirty-two Republics, like States in American terms, that are under the Federal Irish Government.]

    The new Irish President, James Stephens, proclaimed that the Army of Ireland was going to be expanded, calling for new men to rally and join the Irish Republican Army. Thousands flock to the recruiting stations, so much so that the President decides not to call for new conscription laws. [+60,000 Regulars to Ireland.]

    Old factories from British Rule re-open in Dublin, fueling a new industrial growth in the Irish capitol. [+1 Industry to Ireland.]

    The Irish Republican Army reaches Belfast, Ulster on September 17th, succeeding in having the last British Garrison surrender to Irish forces. [-5,000 Regulars from the United Kingdom.]

    The Irish Republican Army captures some British Marxists on the shores of Ireland, and execute them on the spot.

    In the United Kingdom, a massive wave of anti-Communist propaganda surges across the country, only for the Communists to quickly capture and burn most of it. The agents that spread it were arrested and murdered by the Communists. However, support for the Communists grow in England as Southern England loses productivity and supplies. It is estimated Southern England can only hold for another year before it will be forced to surrender to the Communists, the area simply cannot support itself and supplies cannot be shipped from Scotland efficiently enough.

    The new Communist Court system, called the "People Court of Common Justice", does much good for the support of the people. Many criminals are brought into the court, made up of average, regular people, and fair and unbiased court cases undertaken. In a surprise move, a rabid Monarchy supporter is tried for crimes against the state and acquitted of all charges. The court allows free speech throughout the Worker's Commonwealth, and peaceful protests. [+1 Stability to the Worker's Commonwealth]

    The fighting in Southern England intensifies as Communist troops pour out of London and into Southeastern England. They succeed in marching to the sea, annexing swaths of territory to the Worker's Commonwealth, at heavy costs. [-10,000 Regulars from The Worker's Commonwealth. -3,000 Regulars from The United Kingdom.]

    A huge Monarchist Army is raised Southern England to prevent the massive march by the Communists. Their only success in this area is dividing England and Wales from each other, but the Worker's Commonwealth find themselves vastly outnumbered in the area. [+150,000 Conscripts to The United Kingdom. -20,000 Regulars from The Worker's Commonwealth]

    In Scotland, the Royal Army tries to push into the English countryside, only for the invasion to stall out and lose momentum only a few miles into the front line. Both sides sustain heavy casualties, a Pyrrhic victory for the British, who gained little land. [-30,000 Regulars from The United Kingdom, -45,000 Regulars from the Worker's Commonwealth]

    Communist spies in Edinburgh are found and hung by Royal Decree of King Edward. The Prime Minister asked for a fair trial, but the recent murder of Queen Victoria has removed all sense of fairness from the eyes of the British Government, and if the Prime Minister does not start to clamp down and be ruthless, he just might lose his job.

    In London, Koreans are welcomed with open arms to Karl Marx's office to try and learn more about the Communist System of Government. The Koreans are delighted at the prospect of true equality, and are eager to try and adopt the same system used by the Worker's Commonwealth.


    1. The British Isles on December 15th, 1862, showing the United Republics, the United Kingdom, and the Worker's Commonwealth.


    In Denmark, the King announces a new railway network in Jutland, to be completed by the end of the next year. [+1 Infrastructure to Denmark in 2 turns.]

    The Danish Parliament passes a new law granting equal status to all minorities in Denmark. The highly reactionary Danish Upper Class, however, disagree with this course of action and persuades the King to dissolve Parliament, installing a radically reactionary government that rallies against any social or political process.

    In Russia, corrupt officials attempt to steal a payment of gold to the Bavarian Government, to which they are shot and hanged for attempting such a crime. The supplying of gold to the Bavarians becomes headline news as the Russians Wagons creep into Munich. [-£30 from Russia. +£30 to Bavaria.]

    A new College for the Officers of the Imperial and Holy Russian Empire by the Grace of God is founded in St. Petersburg, Russia, allowing for new and innovative ideas to flow into the Russian Army to provide better education to all their men. [+2 to Russian Army Level in 2 turns.]

    A treaty is signed between the Russian Empire and the Kingdom of Greece, providing both with better trading deals and a mutual defense pact. [+2 Trade Balance to Russia.]

    Construction and planning of a massive new Railway System, spanning the Russian Empire is announced. The Tsar gave a speech on August 18th, proclaiming that all of Russia will be united with this new, but expensive, railway. [-£1,500 from the Russian Empire. +7 Infrastructure in 7 turns.]

    The City of Köln receives a surprise visit from the German Kaiser, who is meet with a lukewarm reception. Many people do not like the Kaiser and instead support the Bavarian Catholics. However, after a stirring speech where the Kaiser personally promised a German Constitution, providing the rights of all German to be enshrined in national law, many get behind him and support the new German Empire.

    A massive push by the German government calls for all Germans to return to Germany. Providing free transportation ships from the Baltics and the Balkans under the flag of peace, thousands of Germans leave their ancestral lands to resettle inside the German Empire. By the estimates of the German Government, this endevour, in the first four month, brought a massive 293,352 Germans into Germany from the Baltics and the Balkans. Waves of German immigrants come from Austria, seeking refugee in Posen, tipping the balance of cultures to a German majority.

    The Ruhr Industrial Region sees a huge wave of industrialization and government support. The German Government calls for any private industry to match their own commitment. The gamble works, and hundreds of factories spring up along the Rhine River. [+20 Industry to the German Empire in 4 turns. -£1,140 from the German Empire.]

    German forces in France pull out of the area and settle in Elsaß-Lothringen, leaving a small force stationed in Metz, to establish a new German military base. Some French protests ensure from the Germans owning this land, but a law passed by the local government unsure the Bi-lingual status of Elsaß-Lothringen.

    A massive economic downturn slams the Second French Empire, as the government tries everything it can to promote new growth. It is largely a failure as the economy starts to melt away, even in the face of the Spanish invader. [-100 Income from France. -5 Industry from France. -£200 from France.]

    However, even in the face of this massive economic defeat, Emperor Napoleon III goes on a tour around the country, solemnly admitting to France's defeat, but for all the Frenchmen to pull together, and face the new enemy. Because of his humility, many of the French citizens do not wish for a revolution, instead they rally around their Tricolour and support the Emperor. [+2 Stability to France.]

    The Spanish-French War kicks up as a massive invasion of Catalonia is launched by the Spanish. They surge into the area after a massive artillery barrage, causing the French forces to retreat all the way to Valencia. It is here that the Spanish once again try to force the capitulation of the France, but the defenses are too great, and a new Corps of French infantry surges into the battle, turning the tide and swamping the attackers at Valencia, causing them to retreat back into the Spanish mainland. [-10,000 Regulars from Spain. -12,000 Regulars from France.]

    Off the shores of Catalonia, the French Navy and the Spanish Navy enter into a large naval engagement, that results in the partial destruction of the Spanish fleet. The French take massive losses, but a 40,000 man force being landed in Catalonia is sunk at the cost of half the French fleet. [-40,000 Regulars from Spain. -10 Small Ships from Spain. -2 Large Ships from France. -7 Small Ships from France.]

    The Spanish force outside Barcelona asks the French Commander to surrender or the city will be destroyed. He claims that Valencia has already been destroyed and has surrendered, but is laughed at by the French commander, who had just gotten information by an underground telegraph wire claiming the Spanish had been driven off. The French refuse to surrender, and the two armies stand in a standstill outside Barcelona.

    Taxes on factory owners are lowered, and the Spanish Government offers cash incentives to new businesses that can make a certain amount of money. Industry sprouts up across the Spanish Kingdom, fueled by the Government and War. [+3 Industry to Spain in 2 turns.]

    In Portugal, the Government is overthrown and a new, democratic Republic is installed. This new nation, founded on the ideals of Iberian Pan-Nationalism, requests the Spanish Government for a new Iberian Union, which would be split Spain and Portugal into several Kingdoms, all ruled by members of the Spanish and Portuguese Royal Family, and under the overall guidance of Queen Isabella.


    2. The Proposed Iberian Union, with the several Kingdoms marked.


    In the low countries, the Dutch continue their invasion of the Kingdom of Belgium. King Leopold personally promised to fight the Dutch invaders all the way to Amsterdam. For the time being, it looked like such a statement was going to happen. The Belgian Army kept driving the Dutch back, with heavy losses on both sides. Fighting is pushed to the Belgian-Dutch border, where on December 18th, 1862, the Dutch army had to retreat due to the overwhelming power of the Belgium forces. The war had finally arrived in the Netherlands [-45,000 Regulars from Belgium. -30,000 Regulars from the Netherlands.]

    Citizens across Belgium are attracted to the army to try and prevent themselves from being taken over once again by the Dutch. [+30,000 Conscripts to Belgium.]


    3. Citizens of Belgium rallying to fight the Dutch.


    San Marino is accused of helping the Austrian forces, and the Italian Army invades the small country with over 40,000 men. The government is quickly crushed, and the weeping Captains Regent of the country saw their country annexed into Italy, destroying their long-held independence. Several newspaper across the country publish that it was nothing more than a fabrication by the Government to invade the peaceful nation. As a result, riots break out all across Italy as the stories of the weeping men, seeing their country destroyed by the Italians spread throughout the nation. [-4 Stability from Italy.]

    Soldiers of the Italian Army all band together and refuse to serve the Italian King any longer. Whole regiments disband, and a majority of the Armies simply get up an walk away. The soldiers on the Austrian front all surrender. Any soldiers left in the Italian Army are die-hard Monarchy supporters and those who were not touched by the San Marino story. [-300,000 Conscripts from Italy. -80,000 Regulars from Italy.]

    In Austria, a new class of farmers appear from their recent changes in the structure of Government. These independent, Yeoman farmers work on the land that they were given by the Austrian government. These farmers are neither rich Aristocracy, nor poor peasants. They are an emerging Middle Class, the first of their kind in Europe. By December of 1862, they constitute around 50% of the nation's population, the largest concentration by far in the history of Europe, of such a class system.

    The enraged Aristocracy is plainly told by the Austrian Government that they should forget any hopes of getting their land back and to re-invest their money in other places. Some go to the stock markets, some invest in large land companies, buying out some of the yeoman farmers, but most decide to pool their money together to create new factories. Cities like Vienna, Zagreb, Belgrade, and Budapest become the new industrial centres inside the nation as new growth emerges, showing the true power of Industry and Commerce to the old landed elites, who see their profits nearly double. [+50 per turn Income to Austria. +5 Industry to Austria. +3 Industry to Austria in 1 turn.]

    In Italy, the Austrian Army simply marches into the areas under control of Italy, and takes control of them. With no Italian opposition, the Austrians find themselves the undisputed owners of northeastern Italy, re-taking control of Lombardy once again.


    4. Austrian - Italian Front in the winter of 1862.


    Although they were blessed with great success on the Italian Front, the Austrians lost the Siege of Prauge, and the victorious German armies marched into the city, raising the old Prussian flag over the town garrison. The losses on both sides were impressive for such a short siege. With the fall of Prauge, all of Western Bohemia was now under control of the German Forces. [-35,000 Regulars from the German Empire. -30,000 Regulars from the Austrian Empire.]

    Massive rounds of anti-Austrian propaganda hits Austria of unknown origin, showing the Austrian Kaiser bowing to the King of the Slavs, alongside pictures of the German Maiden, holding the Black-Red-Gold flag of the German Confederation, rallying them to rise up against Austria. The propaganda is mostly useless in all of the Austrian Empire, but it is successful in the region of Tyrol. The citizens of this area now felt that Austria no longer worked to advance their interests, and declared that Tyrol no longer belonged to the Austrian Empire, and that it was now under control of The German Federation.

    Bewildered at this, the Austrians sent the 100,000 strong Army of Bavaria on route towards Tyrol, only to receive a diplomatic communique from Bavaria saying that, they too have joined the German Federation. Austria, reeling from this shock, declared war on Bavaria for stealing their province of Tyrol, and removing all the support they once held for them. Undaunted, The German Federation claimed that all of the Southern portion of the German Empire, along with Bohemia, belonged to the German Federation. Rallies are held, and thousands flock to Munich to enlist in the army from all over. [Bavaria renamed to the German Federation. +75,000 Regulars to the German Federation. +100,000 Conscripts to the German Federation. -£205 from the German Federation.]


    5. Cheering Bavarian revolutionaries in Munich, after the German Federation was proclaimed.


    The Federation's armies advance on Nuremberg in a surprise attack on the Germans, completely enveloping them and taking them by surprise. Not knowing what to do, the German General cracked under the pressure. He was removed by a vote of his General Staff, and retreated the army northwards, simply letting the Federation re-take the city, as it was not all that important to their overall war goals. [-20,000 Regulars from the German Empire. -35,000 Regulars from the German Federation.]

    The Ottoman Sultan promises limited reforms inside the Ottoman Empire, trying to get his population inline with his ideals. He speaks to the Ottoman Areas of Europe, asking them to remain calm and support the Ottoman Empire, it is their country as much as it is the Turks. This plea resounds with Ottoman Empire, and stability there increases. [+1 Stability to the Ottoman Empire.]

    In the city of Istanbul, a massive private incentive, supported by the Sultan, shows that the Ottoman Empire is willing to take a step into the Industrialized World. With a member of each of the Empire's ethnic groups present, the Sultan drove the first spike into a new, private, railroad that would be the epicentre of a new industrial area. [+3 Infrastructure to the Ottoman Empire in 3 turns. +15 Industry to the Ottoman Empire in 4 turns.]

    North America


    From Philadelphia, President Lincoln announces that the new Greenback Currency will be used to fund the war. In order to try and keep the Confederate's under control at the sea, he orders a massive new investment into the Navy, and a huge expansion of the number of ships in the Union Navy. [+20 Large Ships to the USA in 2 Turns. +100 Small Ships to the USA in 3 turns. -£1,500 from the USA.]

    President Lincoln calls for a full-scale country-wide mobilization program to combat the Confederates. It is successful, although there are several draft riots in the large cities of New York and Chicago. [+250,000 Conscripts to the USA.]


    6. Rioters clash with Union Troops in New York City.


    President Lincoln's plan to recruit more regular soldiers to the army is not successful as most of the people who would volunteer were already drafted. As a result, not one person was brought into normal army training, and the new recruits were sent to the field to be trained.

    The United States Congress approves a payroll increase for all the Union Soldiers, as a measure to entice more people to the army. [-£1,000 from the USA.]

    The Confederate Congress approves a drastic, almost treasonous bill pushed by President Lee that would allow for any slave willing to fight for his freedom to enlist in the Confederate Army. The Confederate States start to cry for calls of secession, but President Lee points to the new Union troops being raised to fight them. All cries of secession and opposition are squashed as thousands of blacks, free and enslaved, flock to the Confederate Army. [+500,000 Conscripts to the CSA. -£400 from the CSA.]

    Confederate President Robert E. Lee ordered Secretary Stephen Mallory of the Confederate Navy to try and pull together a competent fighting force on the high seas. After much debate, some money was allocated to allow the Secretary to do this, as naval shipyards sprung up across the country, defiant of the Yankee blockade. The call for new blockade runners and commerce raiders from private citizens also goes out, and is mildly successful. [+7 Large Ships to the CSA in 2 turns. +10 Small Ships to the CSA in 1 turn. +10 Small Ships. +1 Large Ship.]


    7. Confederate Secretary of the Navy, Stephen Mallory, the man behind the Confederate Navy.


    The Confederate War Department calls for better training of forces currently in the field. Many decide to renounce their volunteer papers and join the full Confederate Army. Even more so, some new recruits for the Confederate Army are gained from concerned citizens near General Sherman's army. [-50,000 Conscripts from the CSA. +65,000 Regulars to the CSA.]

    President Lee holds a small conference with the Governors of all the Confederate States and asks them to promote new industry to support the war in their states. It is mildly successful with new textile mills springing up in Georgia and the Carolinas, and new factories for canned food and ammunition taking hold in Mississippi and Louisiana. [+3 Industry to the CSA. +2 Industry to the CSA in 2 turns.]

    Guatemala and El Salvador sign an agreement to promote better cooperation between the two nation. [El Salvador is now in Guatemala's sphere.]

    The Guatemalan President calls for the expansion of the Telegraph system across the country, which is mildly successful. [-£10 from Guatemala. +1 Infrastructure in 2 turns.]

    A trade agreement is signed between the United Mexican States and the Republic of Guatemala. [+2 Trade Balance to Guatemala.]

    South America


    The United States of America and the United States of Colombia sign a trade agreement, allowing for Colombian cotton to roll to the American textile mills. [+3 Trade Balance to the USA.]

    The Argentine Confederate signed new trade deals with Uruguay and Brazil, promoting cooperation between the South American countries. [+5 Trade Balance to Argentina. +2 Trade Balance to Brazil.]

    The "Conquista del Desierto" begins in Argentina as the Confederation's government passes a law offering free land to any immigrant, or citizen, willing to travel southwards and claim the land for Argentina. The move is vastly successful as many people leave the European continent and allow Argentina to control this land. All the new tax-paying citizens boosts the Argentine economy. [+5 Per turn income to Argentina.]

    The Argentine Confederation announces a new building project of factories in Buenos Aires. Although it will take a year and a half to complete, the industrial output of the nation will rise. [+4 Industry to Argentina in 3 turns.]

    In Brasil, the Government announces a new railroad system is going to be built along the cost of the country. This railway will link many of the northern states together and many important cities. Even with this new expansion, several entrepreneurs decide to open up factories along this new railway, when it is finish. [+1 Infrastructure to Brazil in 3 turns. +5 Industry to Brazil in 4 turns.]


    8. The new Railway being built in Brazil.


    In Colombia, the new Constitution and elections are a resounding success for South American Democracy, as the United States of Colombia becomes a pillar of Representative Democracy. The previous years' turmoil with the revolution and the old Confederation has been solved with power peacefully transferring from the former President to the new President. He promised to turn Colombia into a great nation, working with the British and anyone else interested in their peaceful nation.

    The Colombian Government notices a huge increase in immigration from Europe after a recent campaign spreading information across Europe about the stability of Colombia, and the war-torn ravages of the European continent.

    Africa


    Construction of new border fences and forts along the Transvaal-Zulu border are successful, providing a new defense against the rampant Zulu warriors, who constantly attack Boer settlements near the border. [+1 Infrastructure to Transvaal. +1 Stability to Transvaal.]

    The Army of the South African Republic is expanded with a wave of fresh new recruits from the annexed Boer States. [+5,000 Regulars to Transvaal in 2 turns.]

    The Algerians begin an uprising against their perceived weak Spanish conquerors. The Emirate of Algeria is proclaimed and is now at war with the Kingdom of Spain.

    Asia


    A new Western-style college is opened up in Ankara, promoting education and stability inside the Ottoman Empire. [+1 Stability to the Ottoman Empire.]

    The United States and the Japanese sign a trade agreement, ensuring better trade between the two Pacific Powers. [+2 Trade Balance to Japan. +2 Trade Balance to the USA.]

    The Nation of Dai Nam finalizes a Treaty with the German Empire, giving the Vietnamese back their land in Saigon. [+£50 from the German Empire. -£50 from Dai Nam.]

    The Vietnamese Army undergoes a rapid period of modernization, allowing many western influences in to help. By December of 1862, the Army of Dai Nam is on par with any European Army. Although some people were enraged at this big shift in Vietnamese culture, they understood that if they did not do this, a Western power could come in and invade them easily. [Dai Nam's Military Level equal to Spain's.]

    In Iran, they cede control of the British Factories to the British once again, but not before cleaning the entire place out of information on the technology and the inner workings. This process ruined all of the factories and left them unusable. The enraged British simply up and left the country, allowing the Iranians to once again step into the factories and get them working again. [+2 Industry to Iran.]

    In Japan, a National Parliament is founded, giving limited representation to the people of Japan, allowing the country to have a better control over much of its inner workings. [+1 Infrastructure to Japan. +20 Per Turn Income to Japan.]

    In Okinawa, a Naval School is founded, increasing the ability for the Japanese to provide better Admirals and Navy Men. [+1 Navy Level to Japan.]

    Likewise in Tokyo, an officer school is founded to help the land forces of Japan better adapt to the changing Meiji period. [+1 Army Level to Japan.]

    A massive battle between Qing and Taiping forces take place in the Yellow River Valley, as 2,000,000 Taiping Men face around 1,500,000 Qing soldiers. There was no real specific battle, just a massive assault by these massive amounts of men up and down the Yellow River. The Qing succeeded in pushing to the Yellow River, but crossing it was out of the question. Several elements of both armies became entangled in each other, and friendly fire was imminent. The scale of explosions in this one battle was so large, a smog cloud filled with cannon smoke and rifle smoke created a plume so large, that British and American shipping were harassed by a huge cloud of sulfur for over a week. [-100,000 Regulars from Taiping. -105,000 Regulars from the Qing. -50,000 Conscripts from Taiping. -60,000 Conscripts from the Qing.]


    9. Painting of just a portion of fighting along the Yellow River.


    All around the Taiping Territory, small warlords still loyal to the Qing are executed by a show of force by the Taiping Armies. Several cities swear their allegiance to the Heavenly Kingdom as their armies march along the coast, capturing valuable Qing possessions. [-10 Small Ships from the Qing. +10 Small Ships to Taiping.]

    The Taiping Emperor announces that food shall be readily available to all his subjects, and the administration undergoes some much needed reforms. The people are generally happy, and tax collection experiences and uptick. More and more food is distributed and the Taiping's unity grows. [+1 Stability to Taiping. +50 Income per turn to Taiping. -£50 from Taiping.]

    The Qing Emperor goes around the nation, giving speeches, and generally trying to prevent a general uprising. It is overall successful as he promises new reforms, and less hunger could the rebellion be squashed. [+1 Stability to the Qing.]

    In response to several "Rude" communiques from the Qing, The British Empire declares war on the Qing Empire, sending a massive wave of troops over from British India into Tibet, where the province quickly proclaims its loyalty to the British Empire. Elite Gurkha troops, armed with Gatling Guns, melt the defenses of the Qing away almost instantly.

    On the Northeast Coast of the Qing Empire, the British Royal Navy lands more Gurkhas and Royal Marines with the intent on establishing a small beachhead. It is successful as the rattling of the Gatling guns pushes the Chinese troops away.

    A new Naval School is opened in Beijing, helping to modernize the Navy of the Qing. [+1 to Naval Level in one turn.]

    In Seoul, a Navy and Army School is opened to help the Korean Armed Forces protect themselves from the threats of China and Japan. [+1 Navy and Army Level to Korea.]

    The Korean Emperor speaks of the new idea of Industrial Production. It gains some traction with the population, as he floats the idea of allowing a factory to come to Korea.

    The British Empire invades the island nation of Hawaii, with a force of 10,000 men. The natives give a meek resistance to the massive British Gatling Guns, where the entire Hawaiian Army is slaughtered. The head of the Hawaiian King is removed from his body and thrown into the ocean, as the British start the systematic killing of all the natives on the islands. However, they do not touch the property of the American citizens on the island.

    OOC: I sense a commie Korea?

    A democratic government having less fair trials than commies?! What is this? Communism that works?!?!??!

    Also, the British wouldn't have gotten gatling guns, it was a fairly new thing at the time. And only used by the Union.

    His Majesty's Government declares that we shall neither forget or abandon the brave men of Ireland who still fight for the Union. Fear not, we shall return. Furthermore, we shall not falter in our fight against the Red foe, a foe which crushes personal liberty and freedom under its iron boot!

    To the government of Iran, we again demand that you pay the reparations requested and give ownership of the factories to the British Government. Furthermore, we demand extra compensation for the looting of said factories, and the insult you have done us by going back on your word.

    To the government of Qing, we suggest that you come to the negotiating table and offer your apology, as well as compensation for forcing us to use these means to secure it. His Majesty's Government will not tolerate an insult to either His Majesty or itself.

    I continue to call upon the Spanish government to sign the original peace treaty. The French people have no designs upon their lands nor those of Catalonia. We want to rebuild our devastated country but need to know our farmers and factory workers can put down their guns or shift production towards rebuilding and expanding upon what we still have. Without peace neither of our two peoples can look instead towards the future knowing our liberty is being strengthened and that we can push for a better equality of all. I have admitted my mistakes, it is time you admit yours. As chaos spreads across many lands we can take this opportunity here and now to take a stand for stability and fraternity for the sake of our people.

    I am shocked by Britain's brutal slaughter of natives.

    How can your nation be called civil when you slaughter men, women, and children and invade nations because of an insult? Is this what you did when Victoria got assassinated? You just vent your anger on small nations and kill people!?

    Stats will be done when Morrell gives them to me.

    The French people hope that the struggles of our neighbors to the north can come to a mutually beneficial arrangement of their various points of contention. Although we are ourselves struggling to raise new fields, rebuild destroyed or damaged railroads and hold together what we remains of our industries, we are willing to take in refugees of those hoping to avoid the destructive fronts of war. Perhaps by our people helping to care for your people both sides can grow together more.

    To the scattered and struggling peoples of the world, we have need of strong backs and smart minds to rebuild France. When the war finds itself coming to an end I pledge to loosen up as many government policies as possible and to empower the rights of all who seek a happy life here. The throne pledges itself to making sure all who suffered from our mistakes get taken care of by our efforts. France will be the envy of the world again, but by our deeds at home not our adventures. By our cities and not by our armies. By our merchant marine and strong push for trade with all, not the gun of our warships. Though we will always take steps to defend the French people and any who call themselves our friends our focus is to better the lives of our current citizens, not to seek to add more people by conquest.

    To avoid further bloodshed His Majesty Francis Joseph I proposes the following peace treaty with Italy.

    The Treaty of Venice

    1. The Italian Army will be limited to 150,000 standing solders.

    2. The majority of the Italian navy will be scuttled. Only 3 large ships and 25 small ones may remain in operation.

    3. The territories of Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna will be ceded to the Austrian Empire.

    4. The Kingdom of Italy will pay 1,000,000 (1,000 in game money) to the Austrian Empire for damages.

    5. The Kingdom of Italy will cede Nice back to the French Empire.

    *A speech from President Lincoln* The last sixth months have been a troubling time for the USA, and not only due rebellion engulfing our Southern states. The vile ideologies of Marx are already spreading their tendrils across the globe, reaching as far even as Korea. They speak of freedom for all, but their revolution has only been marked by the blood of thousands.

    I cannot ignore comparisons with our own rebellion, which also rejected the democratic process of government and is now violently fighting against the Union, like a spoilt child except supposedly grown men. Some may ridicule this comparison, saying that the so-called 'Confederacy' fights to be able to enslave, not free people as the 'Worker's Commonwealth' does, but what is the difference if both use the blood of their own people to achieve their aims?

    To the Black people of the South, I urge you not to fight for your own oppressors. The States you are now fighting for brought war to this nation for their 'right' to enslave their fellow man. How can you abide this? How can you march to your deaths, knowing that everyday you fight, you are ensuring that your wives and children will remain in servitude. The rich of the South sit behind closed doors and laugh at their success; not only have they used you for economic gain, but now they send you to die so that they may keep you in chains.


    OOC: Treading thin ice I suppose but what the hell. What would actually happen if I "EP'd" now?

    Good update, didn't realise we were already upgrading our army levels.

    We would like to remind President Lincoln that you didn't wish to free any slaves while the CSA did and said to abolish slavery.

    People, we have lost Sleischwig-Holstein to the German Empire. I am irate about this loss of territory, but you must understand, we cannot take rash action to take back what we own. We must use diplomacy as our weapon. Saying this, The army in Schleishwag-Holstein will move into Jutland. I promise to you, we will gain back what we lost one way or another.

    Saying this, I ask the Kaiser of the German Empire on a deal. There is a Danish majority in the city of Aabenraas. The city is traditionally part of Denmark and we would like to have the city back. This is all I ask from you. If you return, we Denmark will be overjoyed by this action if you choose to do so and we would be willing to help you in any way.

    I must thank the Confederate Congress for their support in passing this Bill, allowing our slaves to fight alongside us for their freedom. We must use all our available resources and options if we are to survive the Yankee onslaught. These slaves will earn their freedom after showing exceptional bravery in the fight for our collective freedom from the North. These new troops will give us the numbers to continue on in this war, defeat Sherman who is currently ransacking and destroying our nation in Georgia, and push on until we have won our independence. The road will be long, but we will come out victorious.

    As a side note, I am hereby declaring the flag I have used thus far as our new Official Flag, the Blood Stained Banner, as the Stars and Bars is too easily confused with the Union flag, and the Stainless Banner has been mistaken for a flag of surrender many a time.

    In response to the speech by President Lincoln, I have only one thing to say: We are not fighting for our right to keep our slaves. No, we are fighting to show that the Federal Government does not have the power to force the States to do whatever they want them to do. The fact that I am President shows this, as my wife freed our slaves years ago, and I have pushed for our slaves to gain freedom for fighting against the oppression of the North. We do not fight to keep them in chains, we fight so that we ourselves are not put in chains as well.

    God Save the South!

    Robert Edward Lee, President of the Confederate States of America
