Japan blockades the Bohai Sea!
The Japanese Aircraft Carrier Izumu, flagship of Japan's Yellow Sea Fleet, embarked from its primary base in the port of Ryoujun in Liangdong Peninsula and moved fifty kilometers south to block access south from the Changshan Islands and the Bohai Sea. Izumu w later reinforced by three destroyers and two frigates, though Ise, another Aircraft Carrier of the Japans Navy has also embarked from the Japanese Home Islands. The Japanese Government justified its blockade by claiming that the mobilization of Chinese forces near Ryoujun as an 'unjust act of aggression', though the Chinese government has yet to respond to the fact its capital is now under a naval blockade.
Constantinople Liberated from Turkish Yoke!
The Walls of Constantinople no longer fly the Moon and Star banner of the Turkish Republic! As a conclusion of a two-weeks long campaign concluding in a retreat of Turkish forces into Constantinople that itself led to five bloody and destructive days of constant battle, the final remnants of the Turkish Army in Europe have been decisively neutralized.
The Turkish Army, 165,000 men strong, surrendered to the Austrian General Kohl-Sauer in the Prosphorion Harbor when they realized that the North German Blockade on the straits forbade them from crossing the Strait as they had originally planned. With the largest surrender suffered by the Turkish military in its centuries-long history, Constantinople is once again free, and the government of the Free City has relocated from its exile in Naples to restore order once again. With this major defeat, doubled by Turkey's defeat in nearly all fronts, an end to this war is finally in sight.

The Big Five
"The Big Five" is a collection of five large, influential nations that are generally considered to be the most powerful in the planet. Each of these nations has a large stockpile of weapons of mass destruction and their military and economies -not to mention their power projection- is comparable only to the other Big Five countries. Followed is a list of these nations in no particular order.
The Tsardom of Russia (Russian: Русское царство; Russkoye tsarstvo), commonly called Russia (Russian: Россия; Rossiya) is the largest country by land area. A rump state of the once greater Russian Empire before its fall during the first Great War, Russia is one of the 'Big Five', the five most powerful nations on the planet.
Russia is a federal limited monarchy where the Tsar (currently Tsarina Maria) is the head of state and the Prime Minister (Prem'er-ministr) is the head of government. While the Tsarina is an apolitical monarchial head of state who's crown is inherited by male-preferred Primogeniture, the prime minister is an office appointed by the Russian Federal Assembly and the consent of the monarch. The current Prime Minister, Ivan Vladimir Trepov, belongs to the nationalist Motherland Party.
The Federal Assembly is the Russian legislature. It is a bicameral parliament made of the State Council (Russian: Государственный Совет; Gosudarstvenniy Sovet) and the State Duma (Russian: Государственная Дума; Gosudarstvennaya Duma). The Duma is headed by the prime minister while the State Council, organized after the North German Bundesrat, is led by the monarch. The monarch can veto all laws made in the Federal Assembly, declare war and truth, and is the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces.
Russia's official language is Russian, but a large number of minority languages also exist.
Prior to the first Great War, Russia was one of the two primary powers on the European Continent. It held dominion on all of Eastern Europe and contested the Habsburg Empire over influence in the Balkans, which it claimed lordship over due to their shared Eastern Orthodox Religion. In the 1GW, it was part of The Alliance and fought the Pact of Rome. Russia's humiliating defeat in the Great War defined its political atmosphere for the next few decades. The demotion of its Empire into a Tsardom decisively ended its era as the deciding power in Eastern Europe and began a long period of political upheaval and public disapproval that manifested in the Russian Civil War (1920-43). Upon the end of the Civil War which ended roughly along the same time the second Great War did, Russia was reformed into its current state.
The North German Confederation (German: Norddeutscher Bund), also known as North Germany (German: Norddeutschland) is a Cultural Union in Central Europe. It is a federation of constitutional monarchies led by the King of Prussia (North German Emperor) and controls territories in every continent of the globe. It is the primary power in Europe, the leader of both the German Confederation and the European Society, and has on of the largest GDPs in the world.
North Germany is a parliamentary democracy under a federal constitutional monarchy. Its head of state is the North German Emperor (currently Kaiserin Sophie), a title inherited by absolute primogeniture, who is the King of Prussia, Duke of Limburg and Lord of Berlin. He also holds the title North German Federal President. The Kaiserin holds some control over the government. She can veto laws made by the Parliament (though the current empress decidedly abstains from using this power), declare war or make peace, and is the Commander-in-Chief of the North German Defense Force.
The legislature of North Germay is made of the Reichstag and the Bundesrat. The Reichstag is a legislative assembly made of officials elected as according to a constituency map while the Bundesrat officials represent each of the 29 member-states of the Confederation. The Head of Government is the Federal Chancellor, elected alongside the Reichstag members, the office of which is currently held by Richard Lagenmauer, member of the progressive-nationalist National North German Party.
The official language of North Germany is German. A minority of Dutch and Danish speakers exist in the country, and most of the population can understand and speak at least two out of the following three languages: English, French, Italian.
Formed in 1866 in the conclusion of the German Brothers' War, North Germany is the youngest Great Power in the continent. Its costly but lasting victory in both the Great War and the Second Great War has decisively cemented its place as the Power in the Continent. At its height, North Germany held the second largest Colonial Empire in the world, but the conclusion of the Decolonization made it into a modern great power, with all the duties and privileges that it entails.
The British Commonwealth, also known as Great Britain or Britannia is a multicontinental federation of British states. Ruled by a king from the house of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, it is made of four Kingdoms, five commonwealth countries, seven overseas territories and a handful of smaller islands. It also leads the Commonwealth of Nations, an organization of Britain and ten former British colonies or territories with the British monarch as their head of state. It has one of the largest GDPs in the world, and is a world leader in industry, trade and science.
Britain is a federation of constitutional monarchies. The British King, currently Charles III of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, is the head of state. His title is inherited by absolute primogeniture, which means his oldest child will take his throne upon his death. Among European monarchies, the British monarch holds the least amount of power, primarily acting as a unifying force for the Kingdoms of the Commonwealth.
His Majesty's Government, the official name of Britain's bueaucracy, is headed by the Prim Minister, currently Sir Oswald Chesterfield, from the Labour Party. He leads the British Parliament, a bicameral legislature split between the House of Lords and the House of Commons. The House of Lords, a upper house, is made of nobility, clergy and other upperclassmen of British society while the House of Commons is only made of commonfolk.
The official language of Britain is English. Other languages spoken in Britain include Scottish, Welsh, Cornish, French, Spanish, Norwegian, Dutch and Chinese.
After its costly, Pyrrhic victory in the Second Great War, the British Empire went through extensive reforms. The Westminster Conferences of 1940, 1941, and 1945 eventually resulted in the federal union of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain into the newly-estabilshed British Commonwealth. During the decolonization, the Commonwealth directly annexed some of its smaller territories around the globe and released the majority of its colonies as independent states ruled in Personal Union with Great Britain.
The United States of America, commonly known as the USA, US or America, is a country in North America. It is a federation of 36 states and a large number of incorporated or unincorporated territories, having the third largest population in the world after China and India, and the third largest land area after Russia and Britain. It is the sole power of the American Continent, though it exerts some influence in Africa and Asia as well.
The USA is a republican democracy under a federal presidential republic. Its leader, the President of the United States (POTUS), is a elected official who is elected once every four years and can rule for an unlimited number of terms. The US Head of Government is the Vice President, who is appointed by the President during his election. The current POTUS is Cornelius Roosevelt, a member of the Republican Party.
Its legislative body is the Congress of the United States, split into the Senate and the House of Representatives. Its members are elected directly from the 36 states of the US. It has control over declaring war and the US Government budget, as well as removing the POTUS from office.
The Official language of the US is English. Minorities can speak Spanish, French, Irish, and German.
After its formal introduction into Modern Warfare in the catastrophic Third Anglo-American War (1972-75) and the complete destruction of San Fransisco by the British Commonwealth in the same, the United States has went through a political upheaval that has forced it to leave its 2-centuries-long history of Isolationism and enter the world of Great Powers and Interventions. The modern US effectively rules the North American Continent and exerts influence in much of Africa and South America.
The Empire of Japan (Japanese: Dai Nippon Teikoku), commonly called Japan or Nihon is the primary power in East Asia and the only non-Western member of the Big Five. It is an archipelago off the Asian mainland ruled by the Imperial House of Japan, also known as the House of Yamato, the longest unbroken line of Emperors according to tradition.
Japan is a parliamentary democracy under a unitary constitutional monarchy ruled by the Emperor of Japan, Naruhito. The title is granted by male-only primogeniture, where the eldest son of the Emperor takes the Chrysanthemum Throne. The Emperor can declare war and make peace, can dissolve the legislature and appoint the Prime Minister.
Its elected legislature, the Imperial Parliament of Japan, is split into the House of Lords (Japanese: Kizokuin) and the House of Commons (Japanese: Shūgiin). The Imperial Parliament is led by the Prime Minister of Japan, currently Sayuri Kawajiri from the National Democratic Party.
Japan's official language is Japanese. A large population in Japanese Korea speak Korean, while Formosa has a minority of Dutch speakers.
The only non-western Great Power, Japan carved its place in history during and after the Meiji Restoration in the 19th century. At its height, it controlled a quarter of all China and exerted influence on the majority of East Asia -at the displeasure of European Colonial Powers. Its presence in the Great Power both gave it international recognition as an equal power to Europe and brought it into prominence despite its cruelty in colonial affairs. Japan lost the majority of its colonial empire during the Decolonization, after which point it once again became a mostly-isolationist state in East Asia, at least until early 2000s, when it once again begun exerting influence in East Asia, primarily in the Yellow Sea region.

The Archduchy of Austria (German: Erzherzogtum Österreich), commonly known as Austria, is a German-speaking country in Europe and the second most powerful state in the German Confederation. It is home to the House of Habsburg, once claimant to one of the most powerful states in Europe.
Austria is a federal constitutional monarchy. Its head of state, the Archduke of Austria (German: Erzherzog von Österreich) is also the King of Croatia and the Duke of Wallonia and Lorraine. The throne of Austria is passed by male-preferred primogeniture, and is currently held by Karl II von Habsburg.
The Austrian legislature is the unicameral Bundesrat, headed by the Austrian Minister-President (German: Ministerpräsident), the office of which is currently held by Pieter von Neumann, head of the Free Royal People's Party of Austria (FKVÖ), a center-right populist party.
The official language of Austria is German. Minorities speak Italian, Czech, Slovenian and Croatian.
Early 20th century was only slightly better for the Habsburgs than it was for the rest of South German Nobility. While the Habsburgs were removed from power in the conclusion of the Great War, popular support for monarchy was higher in Austria than it was in the rest of South Germany. As such, a popular plebiscite after the Second Great War restored the Habsburg Dynasty to the Archduchy of Austria. The Archduke of Austria holds the crowns of Croatia, Wallonia and Lorraine in Personal Union.
The Empire of Brazil (Portuguese: Império do Brasil), commonly called Brazil, is the most powerful state in South America. Once a colony of the Portuguese Empire, it has by far overshadowed its former colonial overlord, and is ruled by the House of Bragança which also rules Portugal.
Brazil is a federal constitutional monarchy led by the Emperor of Brazil, currently Pedro IV of the House of Bragança. His office is passed by male-only primogeniture, and it holds nearly no power according to the most recent constitution.
The Brazilian legislature is the Royal Assembly of Brazil (Portuguese: Assembléia Real), a bicameral legislature split into the Senate (Portuguese: Senado) and the Chamber of Deputies (Portuguese: Câmara dos Deputados). Its leader is the Prime Minister (Portuguese: Primeiro-Ministro), currently Francisco Lima of the Progressistas.
Brazil's official language is Portuguese. A minority of Spanish speakers exist in the province of Cisplatina, while French, English and Dutch speakers also exist in different areas of the country.
Brazil originally broke away from Portugal in the early 19th century. Despite the lack of its second ruler's enthusiasm, it continued to function as a monarchy after the death of Pedro II, though it was in reality a military dictatorship for the majority of the early 20th century, until a joint Chile-American intervention restored democracy in Brazil by deposing the military dictatorship and drafting a much more liberal, progressive constitution for the monarchy.
The Kingdom of France (French: Royaume de France), known commonly as France or Francia, is a country in Western Europe. It has 40 provinces and a number of islands under its control. It is one of the oldest European Great Powers, and though it is no longer as powerful as it once was, its military might, diplomatic power and economic reach make it a powerful contender to power.
The French government is a unitary constitutional monarchy. Its leaders are the French King and the French Premier. The King, the head of the house of Orleans, inherits through absolute primogeniture and is currently Gaston of Orléans while the Premiere is elected by the French people, the office of which is currently held by Jacques de Fouché of the far right party French Action.
The French legislature is called the Parliament of France, a unicameral legislature that has as much power as your average legislature in a monarchy. It is led by the Premier.
France's official language is French. Minorities speak Occitan, Arabic, Italian, Catalan and Chinese.
One of the greatest powers in Europe, the Bonapartist French Empire was one of the major belligerents of the two Great Wars, the latter of which having become a great war due to the Bonaparte Emperor's ambition to restore the borders of his ancestor's empire. France was reformed into a Kingdom once again after the Conference of Potsdam where the Orleanist branch of the French Royalty were restored to the power they had lost nearly a century earlier.
The Hashemite Kingdom (Arabic: السلطنة الهاشمية), also called Hashemite Arabia or Upper Arabia is the more powerful of the two kingdoms in the Middle East to call itself Arabia.
Hashemite Arabia is an Absolute Monarchy. Its head of state, the Sultan, holds absolute power in the country and no legislature exists. He can declare war, make peace, accept or appoint ambassadors and make law. His office is passed by a designation system where the monarch appoints his successor before death.
The official language of Hashemite Arabia is Arabic, a minority of Persian, Kurdish, Assyrian and Turkish speakers also exist.
The Hashemite Kingdom of Hejaz originally rose into prominence during the Turkish-Persian War of 1907-8 when, thanks to British agitation, they rose in rebellion against a crumbling Ottoman Empire. Once the British Empire had defeated the Ottomans, the majority of Ottoman territories in the Middle East were taken as Crown Dominions by the British, and with the exception of Palestine -which was reformed into Israel after the second Great War- they were raised as local Kingdoms under the rule of various members of the Hashemite dynasty. The Hashmite Kingdom was formed as a political union between these states ruled under the Sultan in Hejaz in 1952 and has ruled ever since.
The Imperial State of Iran (Farsi: کشور شاهنشاهی ایران), commonly known as Iran or Persia, is a great power in the Middle East. Homeland to one of the oldest civilizations in human history, Persia rose to greatness as a lesser power in the late 19th and early 20th century. It is made of 10 provinces and also 2 dominions, though it also exerts influence in the smaller states in the region it belongs to.
Iran is a unitary constitutional monarchy. Its head of state, the Iranian Emperor (Farsi: شاهنشاه) passes his office in a male-preferred primogeniture system. The current Emperor, Reza II of the House of Pahlavi, has been monarch for the last 39 years. The Head of Government, the Prime Minster, is elected through democratic elections once every 5 years.
The Iranian legislature (Farsi: مجلس) is a bicameral body made of the Senate (Farsi: سنا) and the National Assembly (Farsi: شورای ملی). Both offices are elected, though the National Assembly is elected alongside the Prime Minister while the Senate is elected halfway through the PM's term. The Legislature can make laws, appoint budget and other things that most legislatures in a monarchy have the power to. It is led by the Prime Minister (Farsi: نخست وزیر), currently Anahita Farrokhi from the far right Social Nationalist Pan-Iranist Party.
The majority of Iranians speak Farsi. A minority of Kurdish, Luri, Turkish, Gilaki, Mazani and Arabic speakers also exist.
Under the support and tutelage of Britain, Iran went through major periods of national rejuvenation during the late 19th and early 20th century, culminating in the conquest of Afghanistan, reconquest of Caucasus, and eventually the victory in Turkish-Persian War. The victory in the final of these wars brought forth an age of Constitutionalism. When this constitutionalism was contested by the absolutist, Russophile Mohammad Ali Shah, the Iranian People not only defeated his attempt in restoring absolutism but deposed his unskilled son when he protested the former's execution for Crimes against the Iranian People, instead replacing him with Reza Mirpanj, an influential military officer in the Iranian army who was crowned Reza Shah Pahlavi in a small ceremony. Despite a number of republican and separatist movements since the 20s and despite the loss of control over South Kurdistan and the release of Afghanistan in form of a Dominion, the Pahlavi dynasty has ruled Iran ever since.
The State of Israel (Hebrew: מְדִינַת יִשְׂרָאֵל), commonly called Israel, is a great power in the Middle East and the only Jewish State in the world. Established in the British Crown Colony of the Levant through a series of migrations in the early 20th century, Israel is made of 6 provinces and 2 Free Cities.
Israel is a unitary Parliamentary Republic. Its head of state, the President of Israel and its head of government, the Prime Minister, are both elected, but while the President (currently Moshe Mankowitz) is powerless and exists as a purely figure-head position, the Prime Minister holds true power in the government.
The Jewish legislature, the Knesset, is a unicameral legislative body. It passes all laws, elects the president, approves the cabinet, and supervises the work of the government through its committees. It can also remove the President and the PM, dissolve the government or even itself and call new elections. It is led by the PM, currently Benjamin Hebron, of the Likud party.
The people of Israel speak only Hebrew, though everyone in the country can speak one of the following languages, given their immigrant background: German, English, Russian, Polish, French or Arabic.
Israel was the price the British Empire paid to be able to fight in the two World Wars. The territories of the Crown Colony of Palestine, having been wrested out of the Ottoman Empire, were thoroughly cleansed of their Muslim and Arab population and more than two million Jews from the dominions of the British Empire and parts of Europe settled in the region between 1911 and 1945, after which point the State of Israel was proclaimed and given independence by the British Empire during the 1945 Westminster Conference. Israel maintains a powerful military and a active presence in the region, something it views as necessary due to the numbers of time it has had to defend against its neighbors in wars of aggression.
The Tsardom of Bulgaria (Bulgarian: Tsarstvo Bǎlgariya), commonly known as Bulgaria, is a great power in the Balkan Peninsula. Once the master of all 'Free' Balkans, it lost most of its power to the South Slav uprising of 1910-11 which established the Kingdom of Yugoslavia out of much of its territories. It has fought to regain its power ever since, finally reaching the peak of its post-1GW powr in 2020 upon the dissolution of Yugoslavia.
Bulgaria is a unitary state under a constitutional monarchy divided into 7 provinces (Bulgarian: oblasti). Its head of state is the Bulgarian Tsar, an office transferred through male-only primogeniture. The Tsar holds a degree of power in the government, though his power is limited thanks to the recent constitutional movement. He can appoint the Prime Minister, declare war and make peace, break up the legislature or refuse to give assent to its laws without an explanation. The Head of Government is the Prime Minister (Bulgarian: Ministar-predsedatel).
The Bulgarian Legislature, the so-called National Assembly (Bulgarian: Narodnо sabranie) is a unicameral body elected through proportional representation. It is headed by the Prime Minister, currently Kimon Sotirov of the far-right Fatherland Front party.
The official language of Bulgaria is Bulgarian. Greek and Romanian are recognized as minority languages. Smaller groups of people also speak Serbian, Macedonian and Turkish, but the state does not recognize that, and speaking in these languages is against the law.
Known by many as the 'Balkan Prussia', Bulgaria existed as a vassal of the Ottoman Empire in form of the United Principality of Rumelia and Bulgaria throughout the 19th century. This state unified into the Principality of Bulgaria in 1876 upon its independence from the Ottomans during the Great Eastern War. After th Congress of Berlin forced the Ottomans to release their Balkan holdings, Bulgaria went on a conquering frenzy, eventually capturing all of the Balkans except parts of Greece and Albania, even defeating the Habsburg Realms in a war over Bosnia-Herzegovina. After its victory in the First Great War, it was granted the Habsburg domain of Illyria -holding all of Croatia and Dalmatia- but it was soon forced to release 70% of its territories to a newly-established Yugoslavia. Bulgaria from that point on forward was an ardent enemy of both Yugoslavia and Turkey and constantly in pursuit of regional domination, a decision that led to its establishment of the Sofia Pact, designed to muster a regional defense against either country which upon the defeat of Turkey in the Alexandretta War merged with the similar Middle Eastern 'Tehran Pact' to form the Commonwealth of Middle Eastern and Southeast European Nations (or Adana Commonwealth).

The Republic of China (Chinese: Zhōnghuá Mínguó), also called China, is a country in East Asia. One of the largest the single most populated country on the planet, China is a democratic republic with 24 provinces, four Federal Cities and territorial claims on every single on of its neighbors.
The Chinese State is a federal presidential republic. The Head of State and Government, the President of China, is elected by popular election once every four years. He holds absolute executive power, can appoint his own cabinet's ministers, declare war or make peace, appoint or accept ambassadors, and -in certain situations- dissolve the Chinese Parliament and even make laws. The current President is Tsai Ing-wen of the centrist New People Society.
The Chinese legislature is the largest legislature on the planet. A unicameral body with 3,000 members, it has been dominated by a NPS-Koumintang-Social Democrat coalition for five decades. It can make laws, remove the President -under certain situations- and other duties of a regular legislature.
China's official language is Chinese. Certain regions of the country speak their own dialects or forms of Chinese, while minorities of Korean, Japanese, Russian and Mongolian-speaking people also exist. A minority of French, English, German and Portuguese-speaking people also exist that belongo to the cities that were originally leased to European countries in the 19th century.
In the 19th century, China was the butt of most of Europe's ambitions in Asia. Many of its ports were forced open by France, Britain, North Germany, Portugal, the Netherlands and even the US while many of its cities were outright 'borrowed' by certain powers. By early 20th century, things went from bad to worse as China's fellow East Asian power, Japan, also joined in on the fun. When China attempted to respond, a Coalition of Eight Nations put it back in its place. This was immediately by a revolution, heavy reparations for being on the losing side of the First Great War, and finally a violent Civil War that broke China apart. The modern Republic is the result of that mayhem which only ended in 1956.
The Indochine Republic (French: République Indochinoise), also called Indochina or French Indochina is a country in Southeast Asia. Originally a colony of the French Empire since the 1860s, it seceded from the French during the Decolonization, and remains an unpopular, alien fixture in the region that has braved many enemy invasions. It is divided into three Provinces and 101 departments.
Indochina is a military dictatorship by necessity, but can also be considered an Army with a State as everyone of its citizens is a member of the Indochinese Defense Force. Its Head of State is the National Chief, currently François de la Pen, who is also the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Indochinese Defense Force.
The people of Indochina speak French. The old languages of the area are as dead as the people that once spoke them before the French were through with the area.
Indochina became a colony of the French through a series of wars between 1866 and 1893. In 1895, French Indochina as a united colony of the French Empire was established. Its governors were nearly consistently ardent believers of the fact that East Asian people were 'subhuman', and as such believed the area would need to be thoroughly cleansed of its inhabitants before it could become a civilized place. As such, between 1900 and 1950, a total of 35 million native people were systematically exterminated and any sign of their existence thoroughly removed, and the area populated by French settlers. The moment Indochina was homogeneously French, it rode the waves of decolonization and waged a war of independence against France, which it eventually won after 11 months of combat in 1957.
The Ethiopian Empire (Ethiopian: Mängəstä Ityop'p'ya), commonly called Ethiopia, is one of the few continuously independent native countries in Africa, the oldest continuously Christian state in Africa and the only African nation not to be colonized by a European Power during the Scramble for Africa. It is made of eight provinces, two Special City districts and one ethno-linguistic minority community division.
The Ethiopian Empire is a monarchy. Its Head of State is the Emperor of Ethiopia, an office that is inherited by male-only primogeniture. Its holder, currently Haile Selassie II, holds limited but noticeable executive or legislative power. He can make law, dissolve the legislature, declare war and make peace, and unilaterally interfere in judicial process. The Ethiopian Prime Minister, currently Zenaye Esra of the left-wing Ethiopian Democratic National Front (EDNF) is appointed by the Emperor as well.
The Ethiopian Legislature is called the Parliamentary Assembly, a bicameral body divided into the House of Lords and House of Peoples' Representatives, its powers are slightly more limited than most royal parliaments.
Ethiopia modernized itself in late 19th century. In early 20th century, it was forced to fight against aggression from the Italian Kingdom twice, and thoroughly defeated Italy both times -making Italy the only country to lose to a native state in Africa throughout the Scramble for Africa. Until 1978, it was an absolute monarchy. At that point, a civil war began between communists, secessionists, royalists and nationalists. A Nationalist-Royalist coalition eventually came out victorious but was forced to concede to demands for democracy, representation and rule of law, resulting in the modern Ethiopian State.
The Empire of Scandinavia (Swedish: Skandinaviska Imperiet), also called the Nordic Empire, Scandinavia, or jokingly Greater Sweden, is a state encompassing most of Scandinavia. A cultural union of Nordic people (+Finland), it is made of the five kingdoms all located in Northern Europe.
Scandinavia is functionally four kingdoms ruled in personal union, with Sweden being the senior partner. The King of Sweden (currently Quee Margrethe II of the House of Bernadotte) is also the Emperor of Scandinavia. While each of the five states have their own local government, the Head of General Government is the Prime Minister of the Empire, currently Alvin Jacobsson of the Centre Party.
The General legislature of Scandinavia is the Riksdag, a bicameral legislature divided into the States' Council (Swedish: Statsrĺdet) and the People's Assembly (Swedish: Folkförsamlingen). The former is appointed by the elected government of the four states of the Empire and made of 15 members while the latter is elected directly by the people of Scandinavia. The Prime Minister is the leader of the latter branch of the legislature.
Scandinavia's official language is Swedish though Norwegian, Danish, Faroese and Icelandic all hold co-official status. In addition, Finnish, Saami and Estonian also hold semi-official status. A minority of English speakers and German speakers also exist.
Ever since Sweden was defeated and humiliated in the Napoleonic Wars, it had attempted to restore its position as a major European Power. This opportunity only arrived in 1911 when it was granted Finland from the crumbling Russian Empire during the First Great War. Immediately afterwards, using the general anti-war atmosphere of the European powers, it invaded Denmark and forced it to recognize the Swedish King as its own sovereign as well. By 1938, Sweden, Norway and Denmark had united into a renewed Kalmar Union: the Scandinavian Empire. The Empire was originally extremely Swede-centric, but a series of protests in 1963-75 eventually forced the Swedish King to concede and accept a newly drafted constitution that brings the four states closer to equality.
The Hungarian Republic (Hungarian: Magyar Köztársaság), commonly known as Hungary (Hungarian: Magyarország), also called Carpathia or Greater Hungary is a country in Central Europe. Once a component of the Habsburg Empire and a stalwart defender of the Christian Faith against Orthodox and Muslim alike, now it spends most of its time cooking Serbs and committing crimes against humanity.
Hungary is a presidential republic. Its Head of State, the National Chief (Hungarian: Országos Főnök) is elected by popular vote while the Head of Government, the Prime Minister (Hungarian: Miniszterelnök) is appointed directly by the National Chief and with the consent of the legislature. The National Chief has more powers than a regular president in a republic, as he the legislature exists primarily as an advisory council than a lawmaking body. The National Chief can make laws by himself, veto or repeal laws made by the legislature and even dissolve it altogether. The current National Chief (Márton Viktor) and Prime Minister (Máté Zsuzsanna) both belong to the far right National Authority Coalition.
The National Legislature, the Hungarian Assembly (Hungarian: Magyar Közgyűlés) is a unicameral body of legislators elected through proportional representation. It is relatively weak, as it needs the National Chief's consent while making laws. It cannot repeal its own laws, amend the constitution, nor hold the executive branch accountable for its doings.
Hungary's official language is Hungarian. German, Romanian, Croatian and Slovakian are recognized as minority languages. A sizable Serbian minority exists in southern Hungary, but the state is doing its best to wipe that out, alongside its speakers.
Hungary was perhaps the second most hurt country in the first Great War. It lost 75% of its territory to Romania, Yugoslavia and Slovakia, and was dismissed as only a rump state in the Carpathian basin. This resulted in a national feud between the Hungarian and Serbian people. Throughout the 20th century, it slowly restored its control over those territories, starting with the Crisis in Czechoslovakia where it annexed 67% of Slovakia and established a puppet state in the rest of it. When Transylvania, having been kept as a condominium by Hungary and Romania alike was finally restored to Hungary in early 2019, it joined the many countries helping Yugoslavia dissolve itself. During the war, it was the most violent and brutal of the countries fighting Yugoslavia and primarily targeted civilian zones, even destroying 63% of the capital city of Belgrade. Upon the end of the Macedonian Crisis which dissolved Yugoslavia, Hungary began cleansing its newly acquired territory of its 'Serbian pests', an act that has been met by condemnations by many Europeans.
The Roman Republic (Italian: Repubblica Romana), also called Rome or jokingly the new Roman Empire is the second most powerful state in the Italian Peninsula. Taking its borders along the historical Italian borders of the Papal State and the Kingdom of Romagna, it is divided into 4 provinces and a special capital district.
Rome is a directorial republic. Its head of state is the Director-President, a primus-inter-pares member of the collective Head of Government, the National Roman Directorate. The National Roman Directorate is elected by democratic elections once every seven years.
The Roman legislature, the Senate of Rome, is a unicameral legislative body. It can make laws, appoint budget, dissolve the Directorate or even itself, but has nearly no executive power beyond that.
The official, and only, language in Rome is Italian.
The Roman Republic was carved out of the Kingdom of Italy in the conclusion of the second Great War. A nationalist, secular and heavily isolationist republic, originally it controlled most of Central Italy, but lost the majority of Tuscany and other regional territories to the Lombard Kingdom in the early 21st century.

The Baltic Empire (German: Baltisches Reich), commonly called Baltia or the Baltic State is a monarchy encompassing most of the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea. A monarchy under the House of Hohenzollern, it is made of four provinces and one special capital district.
The Baltic Empire is a constitutional monarchy. Its head of state is the King of the Balts (German: König der Balten), an office held by the House of Hohenzollern and passed by absolute primogeniture. The King (Currently Königin Mafalda) has little power and is, like in most constitutional monarchies, a figurehead office, though she can refuse to assent to laws made by the legislature. True power is invested in the head of government: the Minister-President (German: Ministerpräsident).
The Baltic Legislature is a unicameral body named Landtag. Its members are elected by proportional representation. It can make laws, appoint and remove the Minister-President, define the budget and amend the constitution. The Minister-president, currently Waltraut Freifrau von Hönigswald of the Baltic Freedom Party, does the daily affairs of the government.
The Official language of the Baltic Empire is German, though Lithuanian, Estonian and Latvian are also co-official languages. A minority of Finnish and Russian speakers also exist.
Initially part of the Russian Empire, the territories that now make the Baltic Empire were wrested out of Russian control in the Treaty of Moscow during the First Great War. Originally rebranded 'Livonia', it was under the suzerainty of North Germany and considered only a continuation of its foreign policy, until the government of Frau von Hönigswald successfully granted its independence through a series of negotiations with the government of Richard Lagenmauer in 2020, reorganizing the country into its modern structure
The Lombard Kingdom (Italian: Regno Lombardo), also called Lombardy, the Savoyard Kingdom, Savoy or Piedmont, is the most powerful remnant of the Kingdom of Italy. Ruled by the House of Savoy and the former rulers of Italy itself, Lombardy is divided into five regions, one special region and a total of 35 provinces and 2 metropolitan cities.
Lombardy is a constitutional monarchy. Its Head of State, the King of Lombardy (Italian: Re di Lombardia), inherits by a system of male-preferred primogeniture and is currently held by Victor Emmanuel IV who has been king for the last 16 years. The king has little constitutional power, but is extremely popular as a symbol of the state and typically gets his say by mentioning he wants something to the public, forcing the legislature and the executive branches to obey his will through the will of the people. Nonetheless, he still has some constitutional powers, such as appointing or accepting ambassadors, making peace or declaring war and dissolving the legislature under certain situations. The executive branch is led by the President of the Council of Ministers of the Lombard Kingdom (Italian: Presidente del Consiglio dei ministri della regno lombardo), simply referred to as the President. The office of the President is currently held by Ottaviano Bellomo of the Lombard Liberal-Conservative Party party.
The Legislature of the Lombard Kingdom is called the Parliament of Lombardy (Italian: Parlamento lombardo), a bicameral body made of the Senate (Italian: il senato) and the Chamber of Deputies (Italian: Camera dei deputati). It is a perfectly bicameral legislature where there is no difference between the two branches of the legislature. It can make laws, amend the constitution and review and impeach the executive branch.
The official language of Lombardy is Italian, but there is a minority of French and German speakers in the country as well.
When Italy was balkanized as part of the Final Act of the Conference of Potsdam, the Italian King was left a rump state in what his dynasty had controlled before unification. While Sardinia was instead granted to Aragon (now part of Naples), it was instead given the French territories in Nice and Corsica. Slowly but surely, Piedmont attempted to expand into Central Italy, until a diplomatic intervention by 8 European Powers forced it to abandon all claims to 'Italy' and rebrand itself into the Lombard Kingdom, the form it currently holds.
The Kingdom of Ireland (Irish: Ríoghacht Éireann), shortened to Ireland but also jokingly called the Irish Free State (Irish: Saorstát Éireann), is the second largest (and other) country in the British Isles. Ruled, like other states in the Commonwealth of Nations, in personal union by the King of the British Commonwealth, it is divided into five provinces or 32 counties.
Ireland is a Constitutional Monarchy. It is ruled by the British King: Charles III of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, whose interests are represented in the nation by His Majesty's Governor (Currently Jonathon Burke, 8th Earl of Munster). True executive power, however, is invested in the prime minister (Irish: Taoiseach), currently Elizabeth Moore of the center-right party Irish Family (Irish: Fine Gael).
The Irish Legislature is called Oireachtas. It is a bicameral parliament made of the Senate (Irish: Seanad) and the Irish Assembly (Irish: Dáil). It can make laws, review and approve (or refuse to approve) agreements and treaties, the State plan and budget and amend the Irish Constitution.
Like all Commonwealth realms, Ireland's official language is English. It also holds Irish as a co-official language. The people in the province of Ulster speak a regional dialect called Ulster Scots, and a minority of Scottish speakers also exist.
Ireland has been a possession of the British King at least since 1542 when the title, historically held by Irish tribal chiefs, was recreated by Henry VIII. The English rule was unpopular and the Irishmen revolted time and time again when England was England, when it united alongside Scotland to become Great Britain (1707) and when it united with the Kingdom of Ireland to become the United Kingdom. The final of these revolts finally resulted in something other than violent suppression. Ireland was granted limited independence wholly in 1911 as the Irish Free State. Upon the conclusion of the Westminster Conference of 1945, it was granted complete independence as the Kingdom of Ireland, which it has continued to remain until today.
The People's State of Sumatra (Insulinder: Negara Rakyat Sumatera), also called Sumatra, is one of the break-away states from the old Dutch East Indies Federation. Once a popular republic, it is now a military dictatorship like many countries in Greater Insulindia. Largely stationed in the Sumatra Archipelago, it is the most militarily-powerful country among former Dutch territories, though its economy is, due to rampant collectivization, not as powerful as its neighbor in Java.
Sumatra is a military dictatorship under the People's Defense Force of Sumatra. Its head of state and government is the National Chief (Insulinder: Kepala Nasional), currently Phinehas Tanjung, who also happens to be the Grand Marshal of the State and its Commander-in-Chief. The state has no civilian government, and as such it lacks a legislature.
It is one of the few countries in the world with a collective economy in which all industry is owned by the State. It is relatively wealthy, due in large part to the fact that the economy might be the only aspect of its statesmanship that is ran by a dedicated civilian sector. Its armed forces, primarily a navy-based military is well-trained and well-equipped (both through sales abroad and a dedicated arms industry), but its people's rights are ridiculously lacking.
Though the islands are home to at least 52 different languages, the official language of Sumatra is Insulinder (also Insulindian), though a minority speak Malay Chinese and German. By law, all Sumatrans are fluent in Dutch as well.
During early 20th century, the Netherlands suffered from a number of uprisings in its East Indies colony. To appease the natives and the increasingly anti-colonial Europe, the Dutch organized their colony into a semi-selfruling state called the East Indies Federation in 1943. This was futile however, as empowering the natives only aided them in better preparing and organizing against the Dutch in their War for Indpendence (1947-51). Upon achieving victory, the federation fell to sectarian infighting and the Insulinde Federation fell apart after the Insulinde Civil War (1952-59), resulting in the establishment of five different states in the failed federation's place. Sumatra, located in the farthest western reaches of the old colony, was one of those five.
The Kongolese Federation (German: Kongolesische Föderation), also called Kongo or Congo for short, is a federal parliamentary republic located in the Congo Basin. A federation of seven states, it is an incredibly rich but sparsely populated country that has only recently come out of a 35-years-long period of warlordist rule.
Kongo is a parliamentary republic. Its head of state, the Federal President (German: Bundespräsident) currently Waldemar Horn, is nearly powerless and mostly a figurehead while true power is invested in the Federal Chancellor (German: Bundeskanzlerin).
The Kongolese Legislature, the Senate of the Federation (German: Senat der Föderation) is a bicameral body of legislatures divided into the Chamber of the States (German: Landeskammer) and the Chamber of the People (German: Volkskammer). It is led by the Federal Chancellor, currently Lisa Weinberg of the right-wing Kongolese National Alliance.
The majority of Kongo speak German. Minorities of, Dutch, French, Arabic and English speakers also exist.
Kongo was originally colonized by North Germans ever since it was claimed by the Confederation in the Conference of Berlin, and was the largest and most populated province of the North German Free State of Mittelafrika. Unlike other provinces of Mittelafrika, it fell to a brutal 35-years-long period of chaotic warlorism, splintered into 125 different states. The brutal chaos of the Warlorist Period severely depopulated Kongo (from 19 millions in 1957 to less than 1 in 1992 when the Federation was established) and wiped out most of the poorer native population that were killed by disease, poverty or sectarian infighting. The Intervention in Congo eventually divided the region into 3 states, of which Kongo is the richest, largest and most populated.
The South African Republic (Afrikaans: Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek), also called South Africa or more commonly Transvaal, is the second most powerful result of the break-away of the Federation of South Africa. Originally a component of said federation, it broke apart after a build-up of nearly one century of tensions eventually eroded the bands of nation-hood in the federation. It is made of 3 provinces.
The South African Republic is a parliamentary republic. Its head of state, the State-president (currently Hendrik van Rijk) is nearly powerless and mostly a figurehead while true power is invested in the Minister-president of Transvaal.
The Transvaal Legislature, the South African Senate (Afrikaans: Suid-Afrikaansche Senaat) is a bicameral body of legislators divided into the Security Council (Afrikaans: Veiligheidsraad) and the National Assembly (Afrikaans: Nasionale Vergadering). It is led by the Minister-President, currently Piet Biebouw of the Pan-African National Party.
The majority of South Africa speak Afrikaans, an off-shoot of the Dutch language formed by Boer settlers in South Africa. A minority speak German, Dutch, French, and English. Like with all other break-away states of the former Federation of South Africa, no speakers of any native African language remains.
Transvaal was the primary beneficiary of North Germany's intervention in South Africa during the Scramble. As a result, they succeeded in wresting control of the Cape Colony and numerous other territories in the region. The State was forced to reform itself into the Federation of South Africa in 1907 after years of domestic protest. The genocidal, colonial state continued to rule all of South Africa, eventually even invading, occupying and annexing Southwest Africa after it broke away from North Germany in form of the Republic of Namibia. South Africa partitioned into several new states after its civil war in the early 21st century, resulting in the reestablishment of the South African Republic (Transvaal) once again.
