One might think to ask the Kashmiris what sort of government they want. Perhaps they want neither Pakistan nor India to rule them.

How did the RMB devolve to this level?

It's like 2017 all over again.

It’s weird when I’m no longer one of the more toxic people in the RMB. I feel replaced. Lol.

Project Mringalaya

It is an ongoing project conducted by Swedesttanossa to construct electric lines to Esterazdravo and Crucemia, to supply hydroelectricity.

Why is project suddenly came out of nothing?
Recently, we gave an approval for joining TWICRC. And, adhering to its rules (its here referring to the Kirsdoff Protocol), we've already started this project before bring officially joined to TWICRC. When we'll join TWICRC, we'll release more projects. Please note that Dothrymka Pingalmanns wasn't started adhering to the rules of the Kirsdoff Protocol.

What's the purpose of the project?
To build electric lines to supply extra electricity produced in Swedesttanossa to other nations. Initially, the project was planned to provide extra electricty to all the nations of The Mesder Sea, but the cost was very high, so, this project was limited to the neighbouring nations. In future, we will connect to Timatanga ho, but that's for an another day.

What are the costs?
We're trying to complete this project with minimum amount of economic output to be spent.

so, let's get started!

This is the map of the project. The project will be started by building electric lines from Annama McHaladrachkinghams, Swedesttanossa to the bottom right island of Crucemia. After that, two minor lines will be constructed to supply the electricity to the mainland Crucemia, and to a small island on the west of Crucemia. About, Esterazdravo, just one bridge is needed to be connected from Fur Engesliana, Swedesttanossa to Wyvernborough, Esterazdravo. The cost of this project is around 30-40 Billion S$.

Currently, we're building lines with Esterazdravo, that would be lasting till 10 October, 2022.

This project will be ended till 23 October, 2022, because we're building this project by fully using our Information and Technology. Till then, please wait patiently for next updates.

One how are you getting the energy from your main island to the smaller islands you have shown? The city of New York has 8 million people and uses 11.5 gigawatts a year, where is the surplus? A solar park to produce 11.5 gigawatts would need to be about 6000 sq kilometers in size, where is this park? Do you have that much land to devote to it? You cannot run electric lines over the ocean. The Baltic which is shallow is 460 meters below sea level, your towers would have to be over 525 meters tall. Each of your towers would weigh over 1600 tons and you would need a minimum of 3 per kilometer. This is not to mention that lines would block ship traffic and the first hurricane sized nor’easter that comes through is going to snap lines and twist towers meaning you have to start from scratch all over again, and this has nothing to do with broke lines from ice buildup every year.
Please stop trying to claim you can do the impossible, work on creating the country you want to live in or develop. Research ideas before you throw them out there. Just because you want to do it, doesn’t mean you can.

You dropped some zeros there.

~12GW requires 60M square meters, but there's a million square meters in a square km (1000m x 1000m). So, it's 60 square kilometers... but that's nameplate capacity, not continuous capacity. Unless Swedes has a lot of desert, and the solar park uses 2-axis tracking, it's not gonna get anywhere close to that during the whole day. Since we can't hand-wave away night, we'd need energy storage, so continuous capacity is no more than half of that ~12GW.

But the real problem with the whole scheme is that electricity is dirt cheap. There's a lot more valuable things to export than power.

No!

Kashmir belongs to Kashmir, simple enough.

Are there any nations who do a significant amount of agricultural tech/science in the region?

Thinking about finally hopping onto the map at some point now that real life is working out for me, but want to figure out what to do with the nation first. Similar ish to Kazakhstan as a real world stand in, formerly incredibly reliant on black gold and its derivative products, and well as a large amount of agriculture, with a solid corrupt streak that shackled the nation down. Over the last two decades or so the new administration has been making huge progressive strides to clean up the nation's image and diversify its economy to attract foreign investment

Would it be feasible for a nation like this to be a leader in Ag. Tech/Science? Or is that moving a bit fast for a nation that 20-30 years ago was definitely not a shining beacon of prosperity and development?

You would be a rival to Laeden, but if that’s what you’re nation concentrated on, it would be feasible, in my opinion.

That's fine if the government has been taking a big part of the oil money and developing that sort of capacity. Since that's about a generation into the effort, your country may still be somewhat dependent on inviting foreign researchers to work in your ag industry, and may still send students to other countries to study, but you're close to not needing that. (Though like RL countries, some of that will still go on anyway. It just won't be a necessity.)

Kashmir obviously belongs to the Dutch.

Ah there's plenty of space in these waters for a bit of competition. Just wanted to make sure I wasnt stepping into an oversaturated market.

I imagine the government would be grabbing from the oil pot, yeah, especially since a lot of money is found there and that industry was propping up the old garbage they're really trying to distance from. Transferring it to Ag would also make sense (from the general public's point of view) I'd imagine since that's effectively their other large industry cornerstone the nation has had for so long, so its not like the money is vanishing into something totally new and poorly understood.

I have no issues with outside involvement, and it does fit in with the idea of the nation trying to lure in international talent, money, and attention so there probably is/will be an appreciable amount going on

My advice is to delete that and work on the meat and potatoes of your nation

Did somebody say meat and potatoes? Cuz I export both, of very high quality and low price? Purchase Laedenian food, you won't regret it!

Okay, ad time's over.

I can't belive I'm saying this, but perhaps we should cut the boy some slack? We have a lot of energy sages here (as we do on military matters) but being an actual expert on a topic shouldn't be a requirement to write about it. Of course, some of his ideas are grossly unrealistic, like building energy transmission towers over the ocean and such, but I think that going as far as calculating the necessary land area for his solar panels is too much. Besides, this is something that won't affect other people's canon, so it shouldn't raise as much concerns I think.

I'm a big agro producer, along with a few other ppl (San Jimenez, Veldhaven and Keomora, mainly). If you're planning to big a big agro guy, we should definetely talk. We'll either be very close friends or very bitter rivals. Both would be fun, tho

International monopolistic agriculture conglomerate coming soon to TWI :thinking:

But yeah, planning on being big into ag with all this in mind. Already found a tantalizing map spot so I just need to get home and finish the pieces I need for a map application

Thank you.

Being a bit pedantic, at least half of TWI exists on tomorrow’s side of the Date Line, so both today (22/Sep) and tomorrow (23/Sep) can be considered valid.

How did the RMB get this toxic without me in it?
Must be the work of the devil!
