    Map:


    1. Send Personal messages with the nation you wish to choose. If possible read a bit about that country that you have picked and what it did in a few years preceding 1900.

    2. After you have picked your nation, you can send in turns, which take the form of:

    Military affairs: (Organisation, running, wars, reforms, etc)
    Diplomacy and external affairs: (Deals with other nations, trade, diplomatic bullshit, espionage)
    Economic affairs: (Economic reforms, things to focus in, budget, etc. Note that government intervention in economics is very small at the start.)
    Internal politics and affairs: (Politics, censorship, elections, social and political reforms, propaganda, etc)

    After this I will take in all the turns for processing and then make the next turn.


    3. There is also an option for those who wish to be different, revolutionaries.

    You use the same country and turn format, but do it as the head of a underground revolutionary party. Your goal is to overthrow the regime and establish yourself as head of state, where you can then run things according to your will. (Depending on certain conditions, a civil war may happen. The revolutionaries can be funded by foreign players, and will grow in strength depending how incapable or capable the heads of state and parties are. A weak ruler and a strong party ruler will see a revolution occur. There may be only one such party for each country though. But another can appear once that party is eliminated or becomes the new state.

    4. The map will be edited to reflect territory changes.

    I will try to edit things to match changing conditions as I go along. But the general idea is you either run a country, or work as a party to bring it down. Interact and all.

    Technologies, inventions, cultural movements and ideas will be partly affected by the player, but for the most part controlled by myself.

    Remember to send PM's with your countries name (Or Revolutionary party with country it is in) and the game turn and date.

    ​THERE IS A TWO EDIT LIMIT, I DO NOT WANT A REPEAT OF SEED EATER'S MASS EDITS

    Let's get started.

    And why is Morocco taken by Spain? It wasn't fully taken yet.

    Cuba gained independence from USA May 20th, 1902.
    Bulgaria gained independence from Ottomans September 22th, 1908.

    EMPIRES AND REVOLUTIONS
    TURN 1
    1900

    MAP:


    Music:

    WORLD EVENTS:
    -Italian King Umberto I is assassinated by anarchist Angelo Bresci. King Victor Emmanuel III succeeds him.
    -Kodac introduces $1 Brownie cameras.
    -Max Planck formulates Quantum Theory.
    -Sigmund Freud publishes The Interpretation of Dreams.

    WARS:
    South African Revolution: 1900-

    Ottoman Empire - Zillamaster

    Economic State:Poor but Stagnant

    -Heavy training of new recruits begins.
    -Cavalry unites are ordered to march into Palestine. It is to signify that the Ottomans are still a world power. The Palestinians are confused as to why the Ottomans chose their lands to march a shitload of horses through.
    -Artillery unites are set up along the borders of Arabia. This angers the Arabians greatly. Small skirmishes break out.
    -Importation of machine guns from the United States begins.
    -The Ottomans ask for an alliance with the Persians. In light of recent events with the Arabians the Persians refuse.
    -North African workers are ordered to begin mining for coal and lead.
    -Upper class taxes are raised slighty. This causes minor dissent among the upper class but not enough to be worried over.
    -A search for copper begins with nothing major found yet. The metallurgy industry remains the same.
    -The Turkish Worker's Party is established. It is a socialist party. The lower class people seem to like it but the middle and upper classes aren't big fans of it. As of now it poses no threat.
    -The people all agree that they would like to see Arabia be a part of the Empire again.

    Kingdom of Spain - Ruskie

    Economic State: Decent but with Slight Downturn

    -Meetings between the leaders of Spain and Portugal commence. Relations improve significantly between these nations.
    -Attempts to improve relations with Mexico fail but most other spanish speaking nations like Spain.
    -Funding of Pro-Spanish Advocacy Groups begins.
    -Taxes are cut across the board. This pleases most of the population but the government income is lowered significantly. This is only a temporary effect though, soon income will increase again. For the time being the economy worsens a bit.
    -Infrastructural projects begin (it wouldn't be a forum game without Ruskie's infrastructural projects).
    -Money is placed heavily in diplomatic parts of the government, improving their effectiveness.

    Russian Empire - Daniel Smith

    Economic State: Recession

    -Fortresses are built throughout Russia. The incredible amount of money spent in this massive project causes a dramatic economic downturn. Many people question the necessity of the fortresses.
    -Requests of non-aggression pacts with Austria-Hungary and China go unnanswered.
    -Large scale deforestation of the Boreal forests begins. Large amounts of wood are exported. This helps bring the economic back up somewhat.
    -Oil refineries are built in the Caucasus region. This also helps improve the economy somewhat.
    -An attempt to change the government type is put to a stop quickly by the Czar. It'll have to be slower than that.

    The Netherlands - MountainWatcher
    NO FLAG
    Economic State: Great And With Large improvement

    -The border is fortified for unknown reasons.
    -Borneo is fully colonized.
    -Dutch merchants successfully gain the attention of the Siamese and Filipino people, causing British and French trade with these people to lower. The Dutch economy improves markedly.
    -The Netherlands works on improving relations with Brazil. It's relatively successful.
    -Taxes are raised on the rich and lowered on the poor. The rich hate this but the poor are suddenly in love with the government.
    -Employed engineers are exempted from taxes. Engineers also love the government now.
    -Mandatory education is implemented. Most major cities now have decent education systems. It will still be a long time until education is truly good throughout the nation.

    South African Republic - Satansick
    NO FLAG
    Economic State: Depression

    -War is declared on Britain. This is widely regarded as a bad move. The British hammer South African armies and completely obliterate their already small navy.
    -Those that support the British are shot. This causes more support for the British.

    German Empire - Eli45
    NO FLAG
    Economic State: Good and with slight improvement

    -The Gewehr 98 enters production. It is supposed to replace the Gewehr 1888
    -Elite soldiers are given the Gewehr 98.
    -Factories are told to begin producing Gewehr 98s.
    -Alsace-Lorraine is heavily fortified, much to France's chagrin.
    -The Austrian border is also fortified slightly.
    -A request for a non-aggression pact with France goes ignored.
    -Factories are built around Berlin. Farms are opened around Kiel. (Pro-tip: The Rhineland is ripe for industrialization)
    -Infrastruture is improved massively.

    Kingdom of Serbia - Damian0358

    Economic State: Poor but with slight improvement

    -A new bolt-action rifle is produced. It is a hybrid between the Austro-Hungarian Steyr-Mannlicher M1895 and the Russian Mosin-Nagant. It is regarded as a decent rifle.
    -The military is looked at to see what improvements could be made. It is agreed that training could be improved.
    -A request for an alliance with Russia is made. It is declined.
    -A non-aggression pact is signed with the Ottoman Empire.
    -Greece agrees to a non-aggression pact. Montenegro and Romania decline are considering it but want a little bit more.
    -Food, supplies, and weapons are sold to other Balkan nations. The economy improves slightly.
    -Panslavism is starting to become popular.
    -Aleksandar Obrenović cancelled his marriage with Draga Mašin, due to oppositions against the marriage from his father, his prime minister and his mother, who found out about Aleksandar's plans to marry Draga from a mysterious letter.

    Republic of France - cis.joshb
    NO FLAG
    Economic State: Decent but Stagnant

    -Recruitment increases occur due to the fortification of Alsace-Lorraine by Germany.
    -An alliance with Italy is proposed. It is accepted heartily.
    -Money is put into the military at a higher rate.

    British Empire - KriegsMarine
    NO FLAG
    Economic State: Great but stagnant

    -Artillery research begins.
    -An elite regiment of infantry is formed.
    -A new Dreadnought battleship is planned for.

    -Steel helmets are made to protect the soldiers from shrapnel.

    -Trade is conducted with multiple nations throughout Europe.
    -An alliance is formed with Germany.
    -Factories are built throughout England.
    -Oil is discovered in the North Sea.
    -A small group of people begin spreading National Socialism. They are laughed at, there's no reason for National Socialism. Life is currently good in Britain!
    -Schools are built throughout Britain and her colonies.
    -Pro-English propaganda is spread throughout the Colonies.

    China - vampiresrock
    NO FLAG
    Economic State: Decent and with slight improvement

    -Conscription begins on a large scale.
    -Research of semi-automatic rifles begins. No major breakthroughs are made.
    -A restructuring of the government begins. The ultimate aim is to have a capitalist China.
    -Factories are built throughout China as well as rail-lines and other logistical things.
    -Propaganda is distributed throughout China.
