Well, I'm on the IRC right now. Tell me what you need to tell me.

Now I am no artist, but I thought that I would upload a drawing of mine. It features a Lynxcian footman with attire intended for extreme cold climates. This is the sort that would be fighting in Northern Lynxcia during the War of Steel. Usually, they wear shorter coats, lack the shoulder cover and wear a crossbelt when fighting in the south.

I have decided to begin immediate drafting of the TurtleShroomer labor thread. After reading five chapters of an exhilarating biography on Tsar Nicholas II and the intrigues of his court (and also learning that Russia has always had a secret police, and this secret police staged its Bloody Sunday to swing the Tsar to the right at the expense of innocent blood), I've developed enough enthusiasm and ideas to properly begin the story.

It will begin with one of the leaders of the Jacobins, whom I mentioned at the start of my last RP initiative ("Jacob by Jingo"). His crime was inciting a successful labor riot at a company town that led into such a frenzy that the entire mill was burnt down and several PMC security officials were killed. His punishment? In his usual drivenness, Maven Outtacountry- granted authority to do so in absence of a Congress -ordered him burnt at the stake, the first execution of the punishment in almost one hundred fifty years. (The execution, like all others, was private.)

The TurtleShroomer people have grown accustomed to the absence of a legislature. In fact, the vast majority of them blame the legislature exclusively for the Dark Harvest and the war that ended TS' Ancien-Régime. The increasing autocracy of the Kings, led mostly by the silver-tongued Maven Outtacountry, as well as unorthodox surges of increased respect for the already celebrated White Russia (uknowingly to them, a movement engineered by Soviet Putinland and actual Russia to make TS a more Russian-minded autocracy and drag the gullible TurtleShroomers deeper into their grasps), has rekindled debates in the ivory towers of TurtleShroomer (agricultural) colleges about reconsidering a strongly reactionary stance: Tsar Alexander III's "Manifesto of Unshakable Autocracy".

That doesn't mean the uncorrupted, independent judiciary and universal suffrage will die. It does, though, sound the death knell for Congress. Elections will now focus on the Executive Cabinet and judiciary alone. Bitterness spawned by the Marxist (As in Trotskyist) upheaval that awakens underground revolutionary forces spearheaded by the one-shot Mackonian priest that Mack said IC-ly was to infiltrate the state and catapult Ashton Fish into prominence. These begin a push for labor reforms and lead to the bloodiest events in TurtleShroomer history: a labor"dispute" that occured everywhere else in the nineteenth century.

The seemingly sacred lazziez-faire tenents of capitalism will finally face opposition, and everyone except the Church (which neutrally supports all sides' casualties) is ready to kill every one of them and stack their bodies in mass graves. The corporations in TS are not prepared to let go of their gravy train for the same reason RL China isn't.

The darker undertones of a society I have created are evident: all-powerful Free Markets, a Russian origin, a Russian system of naive trust in autocracy, a homogenous ideology, and massive immigration from Red states, as well as TS' birth from the Time of Troubles that ended after Tsar Ivan IV accidently killed his heir, cumulate into a dramatic story of intrigue, suspense, and my favorite passion: killing organized laborers.

I've never addressed the obvious counterpoints to an utopia based on comedy and some exaggeration of my ideals. Now, I get to do it all at once.

From this crushed revolution, TS will come out stronger, divided into a confederation under an imperial dynasty claiming to be a continuation of the glories of the very nation that colonized her: the Tsar and Guide of All TurtleShroom. This is TurtleShroom's "Grandstand moment". Bitter and tired of the medocricy and peacible existence that has kept TS powerful but "Average" by canon Average-ness rankings, the three new Tsars (whomever they may be) are ready to drag TurtleShroom into a technological and philisophical revolution, which will finally send a creatutre into space and begin to affect terra nullus.

...then my next story would focus on a Christian Democrat (a gentle, religiously guided Democratic Socialism offshoot) government nationalizing TurtleSHroomer investments for the "good" of the Lyndonites and usage of the stolen revenues for social programs. (AKA, what Iran did before its 1950s AD coup d'etat.)
TurtleShroom's government is then faced with the ultimate test of its two most secular domestic and foreign pillars: capitalism and investment on one, and national sovereignty on the other.

DUN DUN DUN!

This is a veeery big culture hop TS, I still find it hard to believe the good god-fearing folks of TurtleShroom will so easily give up their freedoms to a small oligarchy who've just bagged a new foreign title and are now going about giving themselves airs and graces. But its your canon.

What?! Mackonian Priests! What Mackonian Priest? Who is he! I ain't not never 'eard of none of 'em. You'll have to remind me about this enigmatic character but the only two characters I can think that come to mind were both de facto agents of the Mackonian state or the Shangzelos Family, now Greater Mackonia has not been Marxist for some time, the intelligence services recieved a massive cutback under Drematava and most importantly of all Mackonia is currently embroiled in civil war. The Mackonian State is not going to be wasting resources on its overseas agents, given the state of collapse Mackonia is currently in this poor agent probably has not received his wages in the last few months. The Shangzelos family are not going to want to sponsor a rebellion that will rob TurtleShroom of what makes it useful to them; totally unregulated markets. You'll have to think of a different Mack to spearhead this rebellion because as I have said before; while Mackonia is in this level of Civil War foreign operations are going to be limited at best, I'll have to stretch things enough just to have Mackonia end the War of Steel.

Would not a confederation make TS weaker and more divided? I suppose this new dynasty would add some unity to the mix but it sounds a lot like the Holy Roman Empire....and we all know how that was a shining beacon of unity,efficiency and good governance.

Philosophical Revolution? Will TurtleShroom finally enter the enlightenment! And after the enlightenment comes Schopenhauer! And after Schopenhauer comes Nietzsche! Ad after Nietzsche comes Existentialism! Will TurtleShroom finally embrace moral relativism....oh I'm getting excited about the wrong parts of the post aren't I.

On a more serious note I must object to the Terra Nullus bits....you see if TS begins rabidly claiming vast portions of land this is going to lead to some problems, 1: it will begin a spate of copycat landgrabs 2: this spate will be domianted by TurtleShroom as he edits the map. I for one am quite happy with the LOP borders as they are, sure colonisation is cool and all that but really we're not in the 19th century and I can see this is just going to cause problems with regional continuity and RP.

I think we should abide by the current policy that terra nullus is reserved for new nations to settle in rather then merely areas for the expansion of the majors, the odd bit of territorial dispute (that patch of land between TS and Mackonia could make for an excellent crisis) would be exciting but I think large scale colonisations would just seem a little biased towards the side with the best cartographers...given that no one else is allowed to edit the map that would be TS. I suppose the point I'm trying to make is that when one nation starts claiming terra nullus the other nations that consider themselves 'powers' feel obliged to follow.

Anyway I wish you good luck with it all. In regards to Mackonia I am busy writing the next story arc of the Civil War where the Communists, Black Spear and Sakystrumaar form a coalition government (with Sukkoth remaining in control de facto but none other then Malseth Malthero becoming the de iure Premier). Like TS Mackonia will also enter a period of Ascendancy after it resolves its own civil war, this time under a wholly unique regime and ideology that will unite the Mackonian people to finally re-assert themselves and end 'the 200 years of night'...no doubt leading to a clash between the two powers.

(actually if TS becomes more Socialist and Mackonia more business-friendly wouldn't some TS businesses even outsource to Mackonia? Thus reversing the trend that led to the collapse of the Mackonian Economy in 2013)

You've misunderstood a few points.

First, the Labor Movement is going to be crushed in a massive bloodbath. Lazziez-faire will prevail, at great cost.

Second, the "Mack priest" is not actually Mackonian, or a priest. He was a greedy, secular puppet groomed by the old Mackonian order to "export revolution". You created him solely to destabilize TS back when Marxists and Sikasith reigned.

As for terra nullus, you've made excellent points. I'll observe that.

The Holy Roman Empire is a good comparison. Each state (they will be called parishes) will be held by its own Rector and its own nobleman. The western-central part of TS has become majority Asian. Charasmatic men bathed in the fires of GEIJD and Koyro will begin to urbanize and industrialize their newfound lands at the expense of freedom. (In other words, literally Huey Long of Louisiana.) They will be the first and only region to end TS' majority agrarian land usage. The aforementioned parish will be called "Baksu" and its nobleman is the Khan, though in name only. (As is tradition, TS parishes will have multiple rulers.)

That doesn't even cover the rise of a noble class separate from the parishes.

Very well then, but he must be pretty charismatic because he would not have received any Mackonian support since Sikasith's death.

Oh and I was referring to the Christian Democrats when I mentioned TS's socialisation....no I could infer the strikers would be crushed.

The Christian Democrats' movement will strike in Reverend Lyndon Love (a puppeted satellite state), not TurtleShroom.

Why do people run puppet states? Why can't they center their resources on their own people? Glory to the people of Akwenisia...and West Akwenisia, which is NOT run by Akwenisia. Nope. -Karl Vladimir Il Sung

Not Roleplay: Seriously, what's with puppet states?

You don't know what a puppet state or a satellite state is? Reverend Lyndon Love isn't a canon NS account under my name. It's an IC de jure sovereign nation puppeted by TS, an actually sovereign nation.
