    The People's Republic of America - A communist USA AAR


    The People's Republic of America


    EDIT 16/7/2013:In a recent hard drive crash, the savefile for this game has been regrettably lost, causing the AAR to be pronounced dead.

    Opening Remarks:
    Hello and welcome to my very first AAR, as the grand ol' US of A under a proletariat dictatorship! Hopefully some of you will find it to be an entertaining read . I will admit that I'm not much of a creative writer, so I'm not going to take on a fancy narrative style or anything like that, my style of presenting this AAR will be pretty standard. A few rules I have for myself, I will not cheat at all or edit any files, nor will I go over the infamy limit. I am running the latest version of PDM with the AHD expansion. Everything else is fair game, though I would like to maintain some realism and not make this into a completely off the wall ahistorical AAR. Obviously there will be many departures from real history as the USA is in no way communist, but I will try to present these in the most realistic way possible. Oh and a quick disclaimer before any Americans get upset at me for turning their country communist: I am not a communist, nor do I condone communism in any way. I simply thought this would be an interesting and fun idea for V2 game, and my objective is not to offend anyone or push any sort of real life political agenda .

    Prologue Part I: 1861-1868

    The 1860’s proved to be a bloody decade for the American People. With civil war breaking out in 1861, the nation was plunged into a deadly conflict that would ultimately cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of young American men, and bring destruction to many areas of the vast country. The first year proved to be disastrous for the Union forces of the North. Several battles were lost in the first months of the war, resulting with the Confederacy occupying large portions of the Mid West. In December 1861, the capital, Washington was captured by Confederate forces. These early losses resulted in discontent among the populace of the USA, with some asking for the North to surrender, to prevent further bloodshed.

    However, President Lincoln and the generals of the Union army were determined to reverse the tide of war, and by summer 1863 the war was turning in the USA’s favour. The USA had recaptured their capital, and while parts of Missouri, Kentucky, and Indiana were occupied by Confederate forces, the Union had won a large number of strategic battles, decimating the large portions of the Confederate Army.

    The Union’s war effort pushed on slowly but surely, and by early 1865, Union generals predicted that the war would be over by the fall of that year. However, a renewed conflict with the British to the north destroyed any hope of ending the war that early. Great Britain was unhappy with results of the Oregon treaty, which was signed in 1846. This treaty had brought an end to the Oregon boundary dispute and finalized the north western border between the USA and British Canada, with conditions the British considered unfavourable.

    In the spring of 1865 the British decided to capitalize on the weakened USA. The British realized that most of the USA’s army was in shambles, and war exhaustion had reached a critical level among the general populace. The British believed they could strong arm the Americans into accepting a revised Oregon treaty which would result in the states of Washington, Oregon and Idaho being ceded to the British, as they believed the Americans did not have the stomach to fight another war. On the 13th of July 1865, the British nullified the Treaty of Oregon, which was considered to be an act of war. Almost immediately large portions of Union army, which by this point had occupied most of east half of the confederate states, were diverted north to Canada to face the new British threat.

    This new war did not have the effect the British had hoped. The new war resulted in a heightened sense of national pride and identity. The widespread belief among Americans was that if they allowed the British to revoke the Oregon treaty, it would be the beginning of a slippery slope with the British reclaiming American land, with the fear that an independent American nation may cease to exist at all. These fears lead to the war with the British being dubbed “The 2nd war of Independence” by the Americans.

    The war would prove to be disastrous for the Republican Party. This war opened right as their election campaign had commenced, and the American people blamed the Republicans for failing to end the crisis with the British peacefully. This, combined with little progress being made in the war to the south resulted in the Republicans being defeated, and the Democrats taking power in early 1866.

    By the time the Union forces had reached the northern USA, the British had occupied most of Washington State. The pacific theater of war had begun, which would result in a disastrous loss of life for the American forces. The British forces realized they were outnumbered and retreated deep into the Canadian hinterland. The Americans pursued, and quickly found themselves unprepared and undersupplied for the Canadian winter. Of the 70,000 men initially send to the north western front, only 16,000 would ever return home. Despite these staggering losses, the war was a strategic success for the Americans. By late 1866 the Americans had occupied Upper Canada. Further American occupation of Canada continued into 1867, and on August 3rd 1867, the war with the CSA had ended. The USA was now able to focus their forces solely on Canada. The British Plan to annex American territory had failed.


    The CSA surrenders, 1867

    The previous Oregon treaty had been a compromise for both nations, and the Americans now found themselves in a position to renegotiate the treaty to more favourable terms. On May 18th 1868 a new treaty was signed, with the British ceding southern British Columbia, their entire Pacific coast, and finally ending nearly 7 years of war. The American nation finally returned to a state of peace, but the scars from the wars would never fully heal.

    Prologue Part II: 1868-1887

    During the remaining years of the decade and the first half of the 1870s, the USA focused on rebuilding their country, and restoring their industrial might. Vast reforms were introduced to jump start the American economy, much of them at the expense of the working man. The idea of socialism, an idea first introduced in Europe, became increasingly popular with the American lower class during these years. Many would turn militant, increasing the visibility of this new ideology. The Democrats found themselves in a frustrating situation, either give into socialist demands and potentially compromise the economy, or continue as planned with rebuilding the economy. Their decision to pick the latter would be their undoing.


    Size of rebel factions in the USA, 1870

    In June 1872, the 10 hour workday was replaced with a 14 work day to increase productivity. This caused uproar among the working population, as many of them viewed it as unnecessary and downright tyrannical. By this point, the economy had largely recovered, resulting in a large surplus in the budget. Despite this surplus, the Democrats did nothing to relieve harsh taxes on the poor, nor pass any requested social reforms. It was after the introduction of the 14 hour workday that the Communist Party of America was first formed as a radical offshoot of the socialist party.

    In 1873, the USA found itself in yet another military crisis. The government of Spain had given themselves the goal of re-establishing control over their former South American colonies, starting with Peru. This was in violation of the Monroe Doctrine the Americans had adopted 50 years earlier, where the Americans felt it was their duty to halt any European attempts at colonizing land or interfering with any sovereign nations in the Americas. The Americans came to the aid of the Peruvians in maintaining their independence. The war proved to be a quick and easy success for the Americans, and strengthened their relations with Peru. This was also the first real test of the Monroe Doctrine, and the Americans had proved they were capable of fending off any European threats.


    Battle of Arequipa, 1874

    In 1875 the Americans completed the Alaska purchase with the Russians, expanding American territory in the northern Pacific. In 1878 American territory would expand once again with the annexation of Hawaii.


    Map of the world, 1878

    By the early 1880s, discontent in the American levels reached a critical level. Millions now identified with the socialist cause, and called for the ousting of the Democrats who were still in power, and the implementation of many social reforms. While militant socialism expanded rapidly, and Communists had gained power in the upper house, the number of Americans supporting a communist rebellion remained minutely small compared to those supporting a less extreme socialist rebellion.


    Composition of the upper house compared to the size of rebel factions, 1885

    In May 1886 a rally was held in Haymarket square in Chicago to reduce the 14 hour workday. Tragedy struck when a bomb went off, killing seven police officers and wounding several others. The police retaliated by opening fire on the protesters, who returned fire. After the firefight had ended, nearly one hundred people were dead or wounded. Socialists were outraged, and the possibility of open rebellion reached critical levels. An investigation by the police resulted in the trial and sentencing of several key members of the socialist movement, including local leaders of a militant wing of the movement. Nine were sentenced to death for the bombing and gunfight, and were executed on October 20th 1886.


    Depiction of the Haymarket affair, 1886

    Socialists across the country were outraged, as they viewed the trial to be completely unfair and yet another tyrannical measure used by the Government. On October 24th 1886, a united effort of armed, militant socialists across the country took to the streets and began the socialist revolution. It was only days before the democrats realized their situation was dire. By the first week of November, over 1 million men had joined the socialist rebels; many of them part of the army. What was left of the army moved to put down the rebels as quickly as possible, and the army won a series of quick victories in the western USA.


    rebel situation, January 1st 1887

    While the army put down the uprising in the west, the rebels were most numerous in the north east of the country. By early February of 1887 the socialists had captured the several cities including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and were in the process of capturing Washington D.C. The rebels hoped to defeat the government by the summer, and put the Socialist party into power. Up until this point the communists were unable to muster more than a few thousand supporters, but their popularity increased dramatically after the revolution had begun. The communists argued that installing a new socialist government would not be enough, and that as long as a voting system that gave more weight to the rich than the poor, power would soon return to the capitalists and the efforts of the revolution would be undone. They proposed a more absolute solution, to ban all other political parties and return all power to the proletariat, thus preventing any power from returning to capitalists in the future. This created a huge rift in the socialist movement, with many joining the communist movement and many others remaining with the less radical, socialist movement. On March 4th the communists begun their own revolution, so there were two separate rebel groups wreaking havoc across the country.

    On June 27th the socialists completed their plan in toppling the Democrat government, and for the first time since 1866 a different party was put into power. Their victory was short lived, as the communists soon closed in on Washington to put their own party into power. With the country in complete disarray there was little the socialists could do to stop the communists, and before long Washington was under communist control. On the 12th of November 1887 the communist victory was complete. The communist party was installed, and it was the beginning of a new era. From this day forward, the American nation was to be known as The People’s Republic of America, a country where the working man was no longer enslaved by the shackles of capitalism.

    Fascinating start, I've never actually seen a Communist America before. The prologue is really well written (I'm a sucker for the History Book style) and I'm eager to see if they will free the rest of the Americas from the tyranny of European Aristocratic Capitalism.

    New Beginnings: 1887-1890
    The new communist government of the People’s Republic of America (PRA) did not waste any time reshaping the nation into what they viewed as a communist paradise. Almost immediately, they passed a series of social and political reforms that brought an end to the oppression the proletariat had faced for so long, and strengthen the Communist Party’s grip over the country.


    Social and Political policies, November 1887

    To keep that grip, the communists knew they would need to get their hands dirty, and did not shy away. Also on the same day they took office, the government began great purges of what they viewed as their enemy. Many were arrested and sent to labour camps, others were simply executed. The government attempted to keep this as quiet as possible, to prevent any type of dissent among the populace.


    The great purges, 1887

    By late December this program was well underway, and while most of it was kept under wraps, some was made more public. The stock market was brought down, further dismantling the Capitalist’s former regime.


    The stock market brought down, 1887

    America had always been known as the land of opportunity, receiving a constant influx of immigrants from Europe was what had helped make the nation as strong as it was. Many of the communists were immigrants themselves, particularly of German descent. Although the communists had implemented new law that would prevent anyone from leaving the PRA, they wanted to encourage immigrants to come to the PRA to live in the new communist paradise. They set a national focus to attract immigrants, which turned out to be largely successful. While immigration was not as high as it was in years past, the PRA still had a higher amount of immigrants than any other country in the world.


    Immigration to the PRA, December 1887

    These immigrants would help restructure the American economy, which the communists envisioned would become the strongest in the world. In years past the American economy had been #1, but the conflicts and revolutions of the past year had allowed the French to surpass them. To help achieve the communist’s goals, in early January 1888 they introduced “The Five Year Plan” which was a centralized, economic plan for the country. Dozens of factories began construction across the country, and many others were expanded.


    The Five year plan, introduced in January 1888

    By March of 1888, some Americans had felt that the PRA no longer represented the democratic ideals that the country was built on. As such, several movements calling for regional succession from the Union started up, which the communists took with great concern.


    Separatist movements begin, March 1888

    Diplomatically, the PRA found themselves in a risky situation. While the previous American government had never bothered to maintain great relationships with the great powers of Europe, relations were not hostile either (with Great Britain and Spain being exceptions). However, All of the great powers of Europe viewed the communist PRA as a serious threat to the status quo, and took a hostile approach to relations with the PRA. The PRA was aware of this and it was considered a great concern. The Army was to be expanded greatly to face any hostile actions the Europeans might take, as well as a boost to the Navy to keep Europeans from landing on their shores. The PRA saw Canada to the North as their greatest threat, as the British could easily launch an invasion from there. The PRA considered taking action first, launching an invasion on Canada and installing a puppet communist government there, which would kick the Europeans out of mainland North America for good. However, the military was in no shape for a fight with Great Britain, so those plans would have to wait. Instead, the military turned its eyes south to Mexico.

    The Mexican – American war was still within living memory for many, and relations were never amiable since the war. The former Democrat government had managed to bring Mexico into their sphere, and while the relationship was not friendly, it was useful. When the communists took power, Mexico viewed the new PRA with great fear. Like the Europeans, they viewed it as a threat to everything Mexico stood for. To keep the PRA happy, they attempted to maintain good relations, but the communists had other plans. They feared that Mexico would align itself with the powers of Europe, and allow the Europeans to use Mexico as a base to launch an invasion into the heart of the PRA. The communists devised a plan to invade Mexico and to prop up a puppet communist government, to keep the Europeans out.

    In early 1889, the Communists began running a series of propaganda campaigns which portrayed the Mexicans as a threat to the existence of the PRA, and by the summer of 1889 the army was in place and their plan was ready. On July 13th the Communists fabricated a claim that the Mexicans had fired on PRA soldiers near the border in southern Arizona, and on July 14th the PRA officially declared war on Mexico. Mexican resistance proved to be stronger than expected and for the first several months of the war, little progress was made. To continue economic recovery the PRA did not mobilize any reserves and relied entirely on the Military, which was still rather small. However, on November 30th of 1889 a new threat would leave the PRA no choice other than to mobilize. Ever since the communists took power a group of Jacobian rebels had been planning to restore democracy to America, and with the army distracted in Mexico, it was the perfect time to begin an uprising. The PRA quickly mobilized its reserves to face this new threat.


    The Jacobian rebel situation, November 30th 1889

    The Jacobians were no match for the vast pool of troops the communists mobilized, and by March 1890 the last of the rebels had been put down. About half of the mobilized troops were disbanded and returned to work, while the other half was used to speed up the army’s progress in Mexico. By the summer PRA troops had penetrated deep into Mexico, and had encircled over half of the Mexican Army at Monclova. On August 6th this army surrendered, with over eighty thousand dead, and over thirty thousand taken prisoner.


    The Battle of Monclova, August 1890

    By early September PRA troops were approaching Mexico City, and In October the PRA encircled another large Mexican army at Zacatecas, and took over 50,000 soldiers as prisoners. The Mexicans were defeated, and had no choice but to ask for peace to prevent further bloodshed. On October 18th 1890 the war was ended, with a new communist government taking power in Mexico.

    Thank you for all of the compliments

    Comm Cody: Yeah I'm using APD and I see what you mean now. After getting that "Disunited States" event and having a revolt during my war with Mexico I'm genuinly afraid of the rebels now . I will have to be careful in the future... perhaps keep some loyal troops stationed at home at all times. Time will tell

    TugoTugo: I don't have any plans for Africa, though I do have plans for the south Pacific, much like the Americans did in real history. Regarding Europe, I will leave them alone, if they leave me alone. But considering my relations with all of the European great powers turned to -200 as soon as I turned communist, I'm not sure if they will leave me be. If not, I may just have to bring their war to their door step .

    If the only thing keeping a person decent is the expectation of divine reward then, brother, that person is a piece of sh*t.

    A fascinating AAR. It will be especially interesting to see the Disunited States in action, if that ever becomes a real danger. Good to see at least one flank is protected with the new regime (or rather, the popular liberated people's government) in Mexico.

    Now go install communism in Great Britain.

    Very interesting! and perhaps not as far fetched as one might assume. There was a period during the depression in the 1930's where socialism and/or communism represented an attractive alternative to many of the working class. Also I'm generally interested in Vicky 2 stuff. I like very much what you've shown so far so consider me subscribed!
