    Great Britain? The keeper of peace? They started a pointless war against Qing and Hawaii! How is that peaceful?

    Qing insulted us, and as such we were forced to defend our honour as any true Gentleman would. The Hawaiians started our conflict with them, by savagely consuming a foraging party from one the ships sent as a diplomatic mission to them.


    OOC: Qing insulted me, what else was I meant to do?

    OOC: You really have no idea of 19th century diplomacy do you? I did ask, deliberately in such a way that Qing would refuse and I would get a CB.

    OOC: Technically I never refused I just couldn't apologise in a way you wanted me to so you never got a CB so you got stacks of Infamy and your people view the Government in Britain hate for being aggressive warmongers and so you'll lose the election get kicked out and someone more sensible will come in (In game at least though even with a change of government it'll likely do nothing to affect your behaviour.)

    OOC: You refused to apologise, not my fault if you got attacked over it. Not to mention that you're a savage, so I don't particularly need any other reason to take your land.

    OOC: No you didn't outright refuse but you didn't accept either, and anyway even if you had accepted the government would make it sound like you had refused. He wouldn't get stacks of Infamy and as for losing the next election this probably just made him more popular.

    OOC: You said some rubbish about a peasant with a crown being above His Majesty's Government. I took that as a refusal.

    Anyway, enough OOC.

    OOC: I do believe Fry said before that the only thing the people of Britain care about is the Civil War currently on-going in Britain. So, no, actually, chances are he won't get kicked out in the election, at least not over attacking ruthless savages that no one in Europe actually gives a damn about anyways.

    OOC: Seeing as the old one gave 24 hours as the max, I would think not.

    EDIT: Fry beat me to it by about 5 seconds...

    January - June 1863

    Europe


    In the United Republics of Ireland, the Irish Government announces that a grandiose new education plan was to be enacted. Both males and females would be offered free education until the age of 12, where the males would be able to advance to a higher education afterwords, along with a myriad of other plans, that would simply make Ireland the most educated nation in Europe, and the world. The plan passes the Irish Congress by an overwhelming vote, but at great cost to the countries finances. [+30 Income per turn to Ireland. -£750 from Ireland.]

    The Irish Government also announces the establishment of a Trans-Irish railway, running along the entire coast of Ireland. The Government, already understanding the ability to debt spend, borrows all of the money needed to establish this new railway, that would help modernize the United Republics. [+1 Infrastructure to Ireland in one turn. +1 Infrastructure to Ireland in two turns. -£350 from Ireland.]

    Along with the new education reforms, the United Republics launches a new Military College, encompassing both ground and naval warfare, in Dublin. It is funded, one again, by debt spending, but helps the overall Irish military situation. [-£100 from Ireland. +1 Naval level to Ireland in 1 turn.]

    New reforms from the top down encourage the planting of new crops in Ireland, all funded by the Government. It is successful as more people have seeds and land is cultivated for food stuffs. [-£50 from Ireland. +1 Stability to Ireland. +2 Pull factor to Ireland.]

    The Irish begin to scrap the bottom of their recruitment barrel as they start the recruitment of new infantry divisions. Furthermore, half of the conscript army is taken into regular training, while the rest go home, as their enlistment papers are up. [-100,000 Conscripts from Ireland. +100,000 Regulars to Ireland in 2 turns.]

    British Marxists are found on the shores of Ireland once again, where they are systematically executed by the Irish Republican Army.

    In the British Civil War, the pocket of Monarchist resistance in Southern England finally collapses after a series of ferocious fights between the Communists and the Monarchists. While some of the Monarchist soldiers are killed or captured in the retreat, the Royal Navy is able to evacuate the good majority of the soldiers from Cornwall before the Communists closed in a pincher movement and secured the area. [-10,000 Regulars from the United Kingdom.]

    The Monarchists surge into Wales with an impressive fury, driving back the poorly entrenched Communist defenders. The Monarchists are successful in rallying more Welshmen to their cause, filling in the ranks of those who died in the massive assault. [-25,000 Regulars from the Worker's Commonwealth]

    In Northern England, the largest battle thus far was at the Siege of Liverpool, where the Communist defenders tried to rally the last of their support, until their supply lines were cut off from the rear, and the port blockaded by the British Royal Navy. The siege lasted an impressive three months, while the Communists stood firm, and even surged out of the city in an attempt to re-open their supply lines, to no avail. On March 18th, 1863, Liverpool feel to the Monarchist forces, while the Communist Army slipped away to the Southeast, to Communist-controlled territory. [-5,000 Regulars from the United Kingdom. -2,000 Regulars from the Worker's Commonwealth. -10,000 Conscripts from the Worker's Commonwealth. -2 Industry from the Worker's Commonwealth. +2 Industry for the United Kingdom.]


    1. Map of the British Isles during the late Spring of 1863.


    The British Royal Navy also enacts a blockade of all the Irish Ports, forcing emigration down to a trickle. [+3 Pull Factor to Ireland.]

    Recruitment Drives to help fight the war against the Communists ramp up in the areas controlled by the Monarchists, pulling on the glory of the Empire and spreading rumors and allegations of a terrible life under Communist rule. However, the Communists, at the same time, release propaganda into the Monarchist controlled areas, highlighting the oppression they have suffered, and the poor working conditions they have had. While the Monarchists do get some soldiers from this, a good amount are influenced away by the Communist Propaganda. [+20,000 Regulars to the United Kingdom. -£10 from the Worker's Commonwealth.]

    A revolutionary in Scotland is arrested and tried in the British Courts for crimes against the state, he is convicted and sentenced to life in jail for his crimes.

    A large speaking tour by Chairman Karl Marx increases the people's willingness to support Marxism in London, each and everyday more and more people are supportive of the Worker's Commonwealth. [+1 Stability to the Worker's Commonwealth.]

    In the Low Countries, Belgium and the Netherlands sign a Treaty of Peace, ending the state of War between the two countries. Belgium responds to this by disbanding their Conscription forces. [-70,000 Conscripts from Belgium.]

    A new Dockyard is started in Antwerp, to be fueled by a railroad running from Antwerp to Brussels. The Government decided to foot the bill for this new improvement in the country. [+2 Infrastructure to Belgium in 2 turns. -£250 from Belgium.]

    In France, Emperor Napoleon announces a massive bout of new trade deals between the Kingdom of Sweden, the Kingdom of Denmark, and the Ottoman Empire. This massive new influx of raw goods, and output of manufactured goods, stops the French economies spiral downwards, and improves it a slight amount. [+5 Income per turn to France. +15 Trade Balance to France. +5 Trade Balance to the Ottoman Empire. +5 Trade Balance to Denmark.]

    A ship from the United States arrives in the makeshift port in Brest, delivering a loan to the French Government in American Greenbacks. [-$1,000 from the USA. +£500 to France.]

    The Emperor announces that France will undergo a Government Labor Programme, using low wage workers they will go around fixing the railway system in France, and generally rebuilding towns destroyed by the War with Prussia. This is generally successful as taxes are waived on the worker's trying to start new businesses, tax income slightly increases as industry ekes out growth in June. [+5 Income per turn to France. +1 Industry to France. +1 Infrastructure to France in 3 turns.]

    There is a slight unrest in France as the Ottoman Empire sends experts to bankrupt French factories and docks. The Ottoman Empire will re-open these factories, putting some of the French back to work, and mutually benefiting both nations. [-£100 from the Ottoman Empire. +3 Industry to France. +5 Income per turn to France. +10 Income per turn to the Ottoman Empire.]

    In Russia, Tsar Alexander III announces that the Russian Empire will issue grants of land and money to anyone who will help build new factories. This is largely unsuccessful as very few people move to even attempt to start a factory.


    2. People gather in the Russian Empire to hear the Tsar's Announcement.


    Moldavia and Russia sign an agreement, promoting trade between the two nations. [+5 Trade Balance to Russia. Moldavia in Russia's Sphere.]

    Telegraph lines in Russia are slowly standardized to a certain diameter, with the old ones being gradually replaced.

    In Denmark, the Government tries to encourage Capitalists to build more factories, but the shortage of worker's prevents them from investing any money into it, as there is not a profit to be made without people to work in the factories.

    A new education programme is announced by the King of Denmark, which would provide education for low class citizens. The move generally hated by the members of the higher class, as their tax money is now paying for the lower classes education. [-1 Stability from Denmark. -£150 from Denmark.]

    The Spanish Government spends massive amounts of money in reinvesting and rebuilding Catalonia, while the secret police track down the heads of the old Catalan Government that cooperated with the French. Supposedly, this was to make an example of them, but an all-Catalan jury found them all not-guilty of high crimes or treason, and instead offered them all money as severance for their time being jailed, and for damage done to their reputation. The money, of course, came directly out of the Spanish Treasury, and it was a very hefty sum. [-£150 from Spain.]

    The Spanish Government throws away a massive amount of money into the Toledo Steel Industry. After the owners of the factory there said they only needed a very little amount of money, the Spanish government kept heaping on money in an attempt to try and make sure they were the best steelworks in Europe. The greedy owners, however, pocketed 90% of the money and only used 10% of it to reinvest and expand the steel factories. [+1 Industry to Spain. -£100 from Spain.]

    The Spanish Military undergoes a complete and total restructure and reorganization, trying to find the flaws from the latest war. All the military advisers could come up with was the lack of funds given to the Spanish Military, which allowed them to slip into their state of disrepair.

    The Italian-Austrian War proves to be disastrous as the Italian soldiers are pushed back, with their defenses melting away in the face of the superior Austrian armies, as they push farther and farther into the Italian Mainland. Even as more Italian deserters come back, the Austrians move deeper into the country. [-10,000 Regulars from Italy. -10,000 Conscripts from Italy. -5,000 Regulars from Austria. -15,000 Conscripts from Austria.]

    The Italians offer a plea deal, rushing all of the Italian Troops left out of San Marino and sending them to the front line, only for the front line to pass San Marino and settle just a bit south of the nation. The Austrians are greeted as Liberators in San Marino.

    The Italians create a very effective defensive system, that stalls the Austrians to a complete halt, although with heavy casualties to both sides. The problem is that Austria has a constant supply of fresh troops being shipped to the front line, and Italy is scrapping at the bottom of the barrel to try and get more soldiers back. [-10,000 Conscripts from Italy. -15,000 Conscripts from Austria.]

    King Victor Emmanuel announces his abdication of the Italian Throne, where he tries to place his heir on the throne, to which the Parliament blocks, and increases their own power by a series of reforms, turning the Kingdom of Italy into a Republic, spurning the King. However, the former King still wishes to fight for Italy and is made a General and sent to the front. [+2 Stability to Italy. Shock3r, you may continue to play Italy is you want.]

    The Italian Parliament announces 40 Acres and a Mule to any deserter who comes back to fight for Italy. It is vastly successful as more confidence is placed in the Government. [+50,000 Conscripts to Italy.]


    3. The Austro-Italian Front in the summer of 1863.


    The Austrians, their manpower needed elsewhere, removes a bulk of the Italian invasion force in June of 1863, sending them Northwards towards Prauge, to try and stop the advancing German Armies. This is largely effective as a German feint towards Linz is seen and the Austrians bunker down along the Austrian-Bohemian borders, with the Germans seizing control of Bohemia, and sending a large force into Slovakia in an attempt to pacify them and get them on their side. Their promise is Independence from Austria if they rise up against the Austrians. This backfires as many of the new Austrian landed middle class rise up against the German invaders and push them back, forming the Slovakian Defense League, a Pro-Austrian Army. [-10,000 Conscripts from Germany. +35,000 Conscripts to Austria.]

    Tyrol is gradually re-taken by the Austrian forces, with South and East Tyrol receiving Garrisons of men. The remaining Austrian Army pulls out of Tyrol to help in the defense of Vienna, leaving North and West Tyrol firmly under the control of the German Federation, where the Bavarian King tours the area, calling for more soldiers to help defend the German Motherland from Austria and Prussia. [+25,000 Conscripts to the German Federation.]

    In Southern Germany, small detachments of Bavarians are found, trying to incite rebellion in Southern Germany. They are all captured by the German Government. [-15,000 Regulars from the German Federation.]

    The German Fighting Fund is established in Munich, where anyone can donate to the Bavarian war effort. It is mildly successful. [+£150 to the German Federation.]

    Fighting in Central Bavaria intensifies as the stronger German Armies under General Von Moltke push the Bavarians back further and further. General Von Moltke's Army establishes a connection with General Von Roon's army, linking the Republic of Bavaria with the German-controlled territories in Bohemia. The Bavarians suffer moderate losses, but the Germans suffer more, seeing as they didn't gain much ground from the assaults. [-15,000 Conscripts from Germany. -3,000 Regulars from the German Federation.]

    The Battle of the Adriatic ends in a decisive Austrian Victory over the Italians and the Prussians. It started when the only ship in the Austrian Navy sailed out of Venice, towards a detachment of the Italian Navy, who, surprisingly, surrendered their ships and everything over to the Austrians as a result of the San Marino Crisis. These ships where quickly brought back to port in Austria, where they were manned with Austrian crews, and new Austrian flags. At the same time, a detachment of Prussian ships sailed into the Adriatic to try and raid the Austrian coast, and disrupt Austrian shipping. The new Austrian Fleet sunk half of the Prussian ships and commandeered the rest. This resulted in complete Austrian dominance of the Adriatic. [-6 Large Ships from Italy. -25 Small Ships from Italy. +6 Large Ships to Austria. +35 Small Ships to Austria. -20 Small Ships from Prussia. -6 Small Ships from Austria.]


    4. The Battle of the Adriatic in May of 1863.


    Crown Prince Rudolph is married to a Hungarian noblewoman in an effort to promote stability and cultural cooperation. [+1 Stability to the Austrian Empire.]

    Emperor Franz Joseph takes to the streets of Vienna as a simple beggar, asking people for some spare change. One man generously donates him one hundred pounds. Throwing off his disguise, he shows himself as the Emperor of the Austrian Empire and gives the man £10,000 for his kindness. The move is unprecedented and thousands of people flock to the volunteer stations to defend their country and their kind emperor. [-£10 from Austria. +25,000 Conscripts to Austria.]

    The Royal Academy of Military Engineering in Vienna is founded with great fanfare. They employ several prominent military minds, most notably a Prussian nobleman who escaped the Prussian General Staff and swore his allegiance to Austria. [+1 Army Level to the Austrian Empire. -£20 from Austria.]

    Finally, on June 17th, 1863, The Austrian Empire calls for a complete and total mobilization of all the Empire's forces. All the extra Garrisons and reserve corps are called into arms. Farmers and Workers everywhere answer to the call to the army. [+400,000 Conscripts to Austria. +140,000 Regulars to Austria. -25 Income per turn from Austria. -£200 from Austria.]

    A Trade Deal is signed between the Republic of Poland and the German Empire, promoting a lukewarm friendship between the two nations. [+5 Trade Balance to Germany.]

    The Central Bureaucracies of the smaller German states are consolidated into the main Prussian one, creating the German Bureaucracy. Their goal now is to take all the unallocated funds found in this reorganization and improve roads and railroads in the empire. [+1 Infrastructure to Germany in 2 turns.]

    Resettling Germans are given land in East Prussia, Elsass-Lothringen, Luxembourg, Posen and Schwelstig-Holstein, quickly eclipsing any minorities in the area and make German the undisputed majority there. Many French citizens in Elsass-Lothringen simple move out of the German Empire back into France.

    North America


    In Guatemala, the government opens their arms to British advisers who help the current Guatemalan Army expand and grow their officer corps, as well as teaching them new military maneuvers. [+1 Army level to Guatemala.]

    The Guatemalan Government announces that they are looking to try and promote a greater Central American cooperation in order to help starve off any intentions on another, powerful, nation infringing on their rights. The Government of El Salvador agrees, and asks to be annexed by Guatemala, which they wholeheartedly accept. [+5 Income per turn to Guatemala. +5,000 Regulars to Guatemala. +£25 to Guatemala.]

    The Republic of Guatemala hosts a Central American conference in San Salvador with Nicaragua, Honduras, and Costa Rica, all signing trade agreements and bringing them closer together. [+15 Trade Balance to Guatemala.]

    The United States Congress announces that they are no longer going to use the British Pound or Gold Money as their currency, instead for war time purposes, they are switching to the United States Greenback (Dollar) as their currency. It has a 2-to-1 ratio with the British Pound, causing 100% inflation in the United States. [United States no longer uses (£), The United States will now use the ($). All amounts in ($) are half as valuable as amounts in (£)]

    President Lincoln announces that new military railroads are being constructed to help fight the rebellion. They will start in Illinois and spread all the way to Massachusetts [-$400 from the USA. +1 Infrastructure in 2 turns.]

    The West Point Military Academy is expanded in size, to try and produce more officers for fighting the rebellion. [-$100 from the USA. +1 Army Level in 2 turns.]

    The Union Blockade of the Confederate Ports starts to take its toll on the Confederate Economy, as goods become more and more scare. [-10 Income per turn from the CSA.]

    General Grant's old Army, now reorganized into the Army of the Ohio was reinforced by militia units and soon set off under the control of General Ambrose Burnside, towards Memphis, Tennessee. However, the Army of Trans-Mississippi, headed by the very able General Albert Sydney Johnston, made a direct path towards Missouri, with the intent on trying to capture the state for the Confederacy. However, understanding that the Army of the Ohio was going to try and capture Memphis again, General Johnston removed his forces from Kentucky and loaded his Army on the Memphis & Ohio Railroad, to take part in the defense of Memphis. The resulting Battle of Memphis came after the Union Army crossed the Mississippi River at Fort Pillow, quickly capturing it, and then pushing southwards towards Memphis. General Johnston set up a ringed defense, with reserve corps of Black Infantry ready to pour out and attack the assaulting Union lines with yet another assault.


    5. Confederate Defenses at the Third Battle of Memphis.


    The fighting lasted for two days, where they dueled to a draw. The Union forces tore up the Memphis & Ohio Railroad, so General Johnston decided to cede Memphis to the Union, and loaded his soldiers on the Memphis & Charleston Railroad, to take up a defensive position in Corinth, and march North from there. As the Union entered Memphis, the last Confederate train pulled out, bound for Mississippi. [-1,000 Regulars from the USA. -6,000 Conscripts from the USA. -2,000 Regulars from the CSA. -13,000 Conscripts from the CSA.]

    While a slight Union advantage was gained in the Trans-Mississippi theater, the Army of Northern Virginia, recently bolstered by new black conscripts, surged outwards from Gettysburg towards Philadelphia. The Army of the Susquehanna, General Winfield S. Hancock commanding, was now facing General Thomas J. Jackson, a notoriously brutal General. News from President Lee of Sherman's March to the Sea reached General Jackson, and he, thinking quickly, decided to emulate such a maneuver. The Army of Northern Virginia proceeded to start burning fields, farms, and looting and pillaging the towns and villages they came across. The XI Corps of the Army of the Susquehanna was dispatched to try and find the Army of Northern Virginia. The Battle of York was the most brutal and worrisome affair, that struck fear into the hearts of Northerners. York, Pennsylvania laid along the Susquehanna River, and the Confederate troops razed the town to the ground, and engaged the XI Corps on the southern back of the river, where they enveloped them, and by explicit orders from General Jackson to "Kill every Yankee Devil", the entire XI Corps, soldiers, officers, cooks, servants, and all were slaughtered and their bodies thrown into the river. [-4,000 Regulars from the USA. -12,000 Conscripts from the USA. -2,000 Conscripts from the CSA.]

    This brutal new commander struck fear into the hearts of all the Yankee civilians. The Copperhead Democrats, now a majority in Congress, threatened to cut off funding for the War if President Lincoln didn't make peace or defend the North from this brutal Army. By the summer of 1863, most of the Union citizens were tired of the war, and simply wished it to end.

    The new German Caribbean Territories are organized and a competent governor was found to help bring the area under German control. Many Germans move to this area and even begin in exploring new places and trying to find more resources. They are somewhat successful, finding some better mining places and expanding some farms. [+5 Income per turn to Germany.]

    The Hawaiian resistance to the British dies down, but a wealthy slave owner on the island infiltrates a British camp, stealing most of their munitions with the help of his slaves, and mounts a surprise predawn assault on the British Forces with their own munitions. The battle slowly ramps up as more Hawaiians trickle in the help this man. The British, low on ammo, finally charge with their bayonets and kill the slaves, the Hawaiians, and the slave owner. As it turns out, however, the slave owner was a current United States Congressmen sent on a diplomatic mission to the Hawaiian Islands. The United States, simply furious at the slaying of a Congressman, demands that the United Kingdom leave Hawaii immediately or War will be declared between the two nations. [-1,000 Regulars from the United Kingdom.]

    In the Cape Colony, the Englishmen and the Boers come to an agreement. They will overthrow the British Government currently controlling the Colony, and become an independent nation.

    7. Map of the Taiping Rebellion.


    The Qing Emperor announces a massive new round of reforms in the country by announcing the creation of a Constitutional Government, ruled by the Qing Emperor and governed by a council of Nobles, Merchants, Soldiers, Clergy, and Peasants.

The National Bank of China is founded, finally stabilizing the currency, and issuing new money. [+65 Income per turn to the Qing Empire. +1 Stability to the Qing]

    Qing propaganda spreads through Taiping territory, teaching them of the new National Assembly in the Qing, only for it to fail after the Taiping Emperor successfully opens up rice reservations around the country, feeding anyone who is hungry at a very low cost. [-£10 from the Qing.]

    On the Yellow River, operations are mostly quite as both armies dig on the North and South Banks of the river. The only real actions are the Naval Engagements between the two countries. Upon capturing the Southern Coast, the Taiping took control of 10 Qing Ships, adding them to their fleet. The largest Naval Battle took place outside Shanghai, as Qing forces attempted to blockade the coast of the country. The battle was terrible for both sides, as they both lost a significant amount of ships, however, the Taiping claimed a victory as the Qing fleet sailed northwards towards a safer port in Manchuria.
