GAME THREAD: Ongoing political events

Posts in this thread should contain ONLY Editable Nation Information Summaries (or OOBs) and be ONLY made (or edited) by the said nation's Leader.

The first post contains the World Map and the rules, and is editable. It could also contain a small cleaned up historical events section in the future.

Rules
Quote:
1. Rules of international war conduct:

- attacking another nation without a declaration of war (surprise attack post) is to be punished immediately by the relevant Military Treaty (generally most nations fall into one, so there's little issues here), if nation is not in any treaty, it should call it's neighbors for help
- attacking a nation should be done with a 1 real day private (PM) declaration of war to the Nation Leader, to give the opposing party the chance to respond - the maximum wait is 3 days, in case no reply, the nation's government is on hiatus for the game, possibly ;)
- after the private declaration matters have been settled between attacker and attacked, a formal war declaration is issued in the thread, and the war starts!

This is to avoid problems with attacking nations that are inactive, or worse yet attacking an active nation and writing fort a war history before the other party can respond.


NOTE 1: Rules of International War conduct do not apply to intelligence operations and acts of terrorism; however, for such acts a nation or it's leadership could be found responsible and become a target of a real large military operation (like it is in reality)

NOTE 1.1: The development, procurement, proliferation and use of biological weapons has been BANNED by the collective decision of the 1st Great Conference of Nations. Non-signatories to the BAN will still face consequences since SD Nations reserve the full right to protect this small world from biological threats by any means possible.

NOTE 1.2: We should really stick more with tested stuff, i.e. getting something from a real built - or at least attempted to get built - test bed that worked should be the first priority. Serial production types are the best choice.

Something purely off blueprints should be avoided, and is not allowed for the initial military/tech base procurement - you can construct this later on from scratch, but do not show this as "wonder tech", as untested it remains prone to failures, and several years of testbed evaluation are in order before you put that paper plane/ship/AFV into serial production and army supply.

Quote:
2. Timeflow rules:

Proposed timeflow - 1 month = 1 year, 1 day thus equals 12 days.

Timeflow in effect for Game Year 2010 - the Third Game Year, will be evaluated afterwards.


Quote:
3. Rules for economy:

Since everything's pretty close to real world, it's clear that large engineering projects which seriously drain the economy will lead to severe economic consequences if started by a nation that has a too small GDP. Cost evaluation should be done by the respective nation. If another nation notices that a nation undertakes a project too large for it's GDP - possibly by miscalculation - it should inform said nation that it observes draining effects on it's economy. If the constructing nation persists, it becomes bankrupt, or faces revolt. These events should be discussed with the Nation Leader via PMs.

The same relates to wars which can bankrupt a nation

Rough lines on what you could have:
1,5 trillion
Generally: 250-500 billion overall expense
Generally: 25-50 billion military expenditures
750 billion
Generally: 100-350 billion overall expense (up to 50% GDP)
Generally: 10-25 billion military expenditures
400 billion
Generally: 100-200 billion overall expense possible (up to 50% GDP)
Generally: 5-10 billion military expenditures
60 billion
Generally: 10-30 billion overall expense (up to 50% GDP)
Generally: 0,5-1 billion military expenditures
6 billion
Generally: 1-3 billion overall expense (up to 50% GDP)
Generally: 0,1-0,5 billion military expenditures

The more or less okay proportions for military spending, more or less, would have over 60% spend on maintenance/pay, while the other 30-40% is spent on production/aquisition of new weapons and R&D, the R&D being between 10 and 20% of overall military spending.

Some simple procurement guidelines for Navy assets - they are not built easily. Spain, which is what the larger nations of SDN are close to, took almost 10 years to comission a carrier, 4 years to launch from the point of where it was laid. Modern frigates take at least 2 years of construction. Everything else falls between the cheapest ships and the most badass expensive ship.

So be careful about the ships you got initially, build sane, don't spam fleets :)


Everything else is up for grabs! :) Since it's close to reality and XX century technology, we don't need too much rules and battle rules since contest outcomes could be determined by the posters common sense.

Bean's Rules of Narrative Flow
Rule number one
Q Created this world he however does not interfere in any major way but once a year normally right after new years day.

Rule number two
If it's not possible in old Earth, it's not possible in New Earth.

Rule number three
This world was created from nothing, it's people were created from nothing, their memories and lives are crafted by Q but did not in fact happen. This world has only one year of history so far.

Rule Four
Natural resources were also created by Q to go on this world, in roughly comparable amounts to what we have on earth, if in totally different locations.

Rule Five
This world has no unclaimed land, new land is Q'd into existence once someone joins the STGOD, if they leave the game their land remains. If they do leave, they should be kind enough to think up a reason they are leaving.
Example, Death by accident, killed by revolutionary's, overthrown by military ectra.

Zor's initial rules for entering the SD Nations World:
Zor wrote:
Another thread on these lines.

Today, Q has decided to give the established members of SD.net Forum some power, but decides not to have it contested among other Humans, here each established (50+ posts and not banned) board member is given control of a human state on an earthlike planet somewhere far far away. You can bring twenty five humans with you as well as a house full of stuff, as well as a linkup

The planet in question is would be considered paradice by most people's standards. It has terran ecology transplanted onto it and differs from earth geographically, instead of continents, it is a complex maze of seas and islands, most of which are tropical to temperate due to ocean currents and such. Technology level is basically that of modern day earth, with plenty of fossil fuels. The planet is populated with humans, which are basically a good solid mix of ethnic groups from all over earth with religion being done with one quarter being worshipers of moderate versions of Earth Religions that get along well enough with the rest being either atheists or agnostics.

They assume the title of King/Tsar/Imperator/Ceaser/Whatever, a constitutional monarch. You get a nice Palace in a capital. There is a parliament, but that handles internal affairs. You also have connection to Earth to see how things are going, and for a vacation if so you desire, although only you and your 25 relocated people are allowed to go between worlds with only the cloths on their backs and a backpack worth of stuff.

The size and prowess of your nation is based on your status and postcount. All nations have water barriers.

50-1,000 posts (or having a negative custom title) -Dutchy
-An island between 7,500 Square KM
-Either 250,000 people at a first world level of income or 500,000 at a second world level
-A military of 1,000-2,500 personel (depending on US) and a basic fleet of a couple of Patrol boats and choppers for naval policing. You can de-militerize if so you desire, as is the case with every one of these nations.
-Able to meet local demands for basic foodstuffs, as well as having a single industry/resource export of note, GDP $6,250,000,000 USD per year

A "Duchy", at 7,500 sq.km, is slightly smaller than the island of Crete, at 8,336 sq.km. (50-1,000 posts [or having a negative custom title]). - Coyote addendum

1,001-2,500 posts-Principality
-An Island/Island chain with 35,000 square kilometers
-Population: 2.5 Million first world, 5 million second world
-A military with 15,000-30,000 personel with a couple of jet fighters, a dozen or so APCs and other light AFVs and a pair of Halifax-class frigate to go along with a fleet of patrol ships
-Able to meat local food demands, as well as having some local manufacuring of consumer goods and resource export, GDP $62,500,000,000 USD per year

A "Principality", at 35,000 sq. km, is slightly smaller that Switzerland, at 41,285 sq.km. (1,001-2,500 posts). - Coyote addendum

2,501-5,000 Posts-Kingdom
-Total Land Area, 250,000 square kilometers
-Population: 15 million first world, 30 million second world
-Military, 100,000-200,000 personel, Comprable armored/motorized deployment to Royal Army, 150 Jet Fighters, 10 Arleigh Burke-class Destroyers, 40 Halifax Class Frigates and 10 modern Diesel submarines
-Able to produce enough food for export, with industry capable of producing largescale goods such as cars, modern arms industry and some shipbuilding, GPD-$375,000,000,000 USD per year

A "Kingdom", at 250,000 km, is about the size of Italy sans Sicily & Sardinia. (2,501-5,000 Posts). - Coyote addendum

5,001-20,000 regular posters, Senators and mods minimum-Tsardom
-Total Land Area, 500,000 square kilometers
-Population: 30 million first world
-Military, 400,000 personel, Comprable armored/motorized deployment to double the Royal Army, 300 Jet Fighters, 20 Arleigh Burke-class Destroyers, 60 Halifax Class Frigates and 20 modern Diesel submarines
-Able to produce enough food for export, with industry capable of producing largescale goods such as cars, modern arms industry and shipbuilding, GPD-$750,000,000,000 USD per year

A "Tsardom", with 500,000 sq. km. is about the size of Spain...504,030 sq.km. (5,001 - 20,000 posts). - Coyote addendum

20,001+, Supermods and Administrators-Imperium
-Total Land Area, 1,000,000 square kilometers
-Population: 60 million first world
-Military, 800,000 personel, Comprable armored/motorized deployment comprable to that of the Russian Federation in scale, 600 Jet Fighters, 40 Arleigh Burke-class Destroyers, 120 Halifax Class Frigates and 20 Virginia class Attack subs, one Nimitz class Carrier
-Major food exporter, with industry capable of producing largescale goods such as cars, modern arms industry and shipbuilding, GPD-$1,500,000,000,000 USD per year

For land area remember that an "Imperium", at 1,000,000 square kilometers, is a little bigger than Egypt, at 980,869 sq. km. (20,001+, Supermods and Administrators). - Coyote addendum

There are no other Humans in the star system beyond us and (sorry shep) none of these nations is as of yet has a nuclear arsenal. Each palace is also linked together with a central political web-forum thing for international diplomacy.

So...

1-What do you do with your nation?
2-What happens to this world?

Zor

EDIT-On Request of RougeIce, you can modifiy your fleet acordingling...

2 Halifax FFGs Can be exchanged for a 1 Burke DDG
2 Burke DDGs can be exchanged for 1 Ticonderoga CG/Kirov CGN
2 Ticonderoga CGs/Kirov CGNs can be exchanged for 1 Nimitz CVN
2 Modern diesel submarines can be exchanged for 1 Virginia SSN


NOTE 2: military technology could use equivalents from your preferred nations (you could use french, russian, or british CVNs if you so desire, not just US ones) to reflect the different technological branches of the nations just as their different nationalities.
NOTE 3: areas and populations could vary, but the status (as detailed by Zor) gives an upper limit on what you could have as a ruler

Government: Parliamentary with socialist tendencies, current leader is Prime Minister Shroom the Seven Hundred Seventy Seventh, there are no term limitations.

Membership:
FUN – Fungal Union of Nations
ISCA – International Sea Commerce Agency


The Fungal Union of Nations (FUN):

Shroomania (me)
Glorious People's Republican Democracy of Blasitification (Losonti Tokash)
Kingdom of Republicburgstatesville (NeoGoomba)
Kingdom of Tiriolia (Tiriol)
The Vortex Empire (The Vortex Empire)
Grand Duchy of Vanaheim (Vanas)
The Shadow Empire (Darth Shady)
Royal Rail Republic (Redleader34)
Republic of One (Zablorg)
New Gottland (Decue)
Republic of Vulpesia (WesFox13)
Sovereign Duchy of Baerne (Master_Baerne)
Duchy of Langley (Shinn Langley Soryu)
Republic of N’ton (Dave)
Qudlivun Free State (Vohu Manah)
II Republic of PeZookia (PeZook)
Bear Republic (Yosemite Bear)
Red Technocracy (Stas Bush)
Glorious Incorporated Republic of Crossrodia (Crossroads Inc.)


The Fungal Union of Nations is an amalgamation of the FUNGAL AXIS and the LUN.

FUNGAL = Free and United Nations’ Greater Alliance for Liberty

LUN = League of Unaligned Nations

The FUN was established during a time when tensions between the OMSK Pact and the MESS power blocs were at an all time high, due in no small part to their development of nuclear weaponry.

Foregoing militarism and belligerence, the FUN instead advocates increased diplomacy and trade between nations and friendly peaceful co-existence. The FUN is mostly composed of Central Sea nations that have prospered greatly due to international trade and the FUN’s purpose is to bring prosperity to all member nations.

However, with the rise of piracy and international tensions, the FUN is also an alliance that ensures security. While aggressive military action is forbidden, the FUN nations do mutually protect each other from threats – so smaller nations can benefit from the bigger militaries of bigger nations.

The FUN emphasizes trade, diplomacy and security. The FUN seeks peace and prosperity. Who wants some FUN?

Everyone is invited.

Well Here's some more information of my little nation
Image

The Republic of Vulpesia
Size: Approx. 6,000 sq Km
Population: 250,000 first world income
Military size: 1,000 troops

Main Industries: Gaming computers by "Frostwolf INC." and tourism.
GDP per year: 6,250,000,000 USD
Government type: Constitutional Parlimentary Monarchy.
Current Leader: Lord Wesley Montgomery the First.
Offical Language: English
Languages spoken by citizens: English (75%), Arabic(4%), Farsi (1%), Afrikaans(10%), Spanish (5%), German (5%)
Current Parliment party in control: Labour
List of all Parties and percentage of members of parliment in the party:
Labour: 35 %

Libertarian: 10%
Communist: 5%
Socialist: 5%

The freedoms given to the citizens by the Constitution of Vulpesia:
Freedom of Speach
Freedom of Assembly
Freedom of the Press
Freedom of Religion

Power Generation:
Nuclear: 60%
Solar: 25%
Wind: 5%
Geothermal: 10%

Areas of intrest:
Mt. Helios; a 3,421 foot tall sheild volcano that is active. Due to it's unique properties the lava that is oozing down fron it's caldera is very slow running only moving at a rate of 3 cm per year. However the risk of a major eruption is still viable so the citezens of the nation know to evacuate their villages and towns to the main cities in case of an eruption. Geological history shows that a majority of the time during an eruption the lava just oozes out at a much faster rage than normal making the volcano grow by about 2 feet in height and 15 feet wider. Geothermal Power plants are located near by the volcano where there are underwater hot springs which provide the heat necessary to generate the electricity.

Feros Depression: A desert area on the island where the land dips down about 121 feet below sea level. Some believe it's a small crater created when a small asteroid crashed into the Island millions years ago creating the depression however erosion has softened the crater into a sandy depression. This location is also where a majority of the solar panels giving Vulpesia it's Solar energy are located.

Additional Poltical information:
Elections: Open and available to all citizens over 18 years old.
Parlimentary Elections are held once every 4 years
A member of parliment can remain there for a maximum of three four-year terms.
The Republic of Vulpesia also has Universal Health Care so you won't need to worry about major prices for doctors if you are sick.

Age Demographic:
0 to 13: 8%
13 to 18: 7%
18 to 29: 45%
30 to 49: 15%

Atheist/Agnostic: 60%
Islam (Sunni): 10%
Christianity (Roman Catholic): 10%
Christanity (Protestant): 10%
Baha'i: 5%
Buddhism: 5%



My Political Compass:
Economic Left/Right: -5.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.90

Designation: Libertarian Left (Social Democrat/Democratic Socialist)
Alignment: Chaotic-Good

My nation:
Monarchy of the Mermaid

Image
Note: the big, black circle in the valley is called Nunblable, an university town where research is conducted. I kinda forgot to mark it.

Size: Roughly 7000 square km
Population: 200 000, first-world level wealth, exact number is unknown due to small rural communities.
Military: 500 strong and armed, plus 100 strong as my personal guard and personal enforcers (which pretty much amounts to delivery and massager duty, and occasional parades), with additional 400 support and technical personal that are part of the military but have not partaken basic training. They mainly form to ensure security, both inland and on sea. Note that the military polices the sea for predators and helps scientific research. The Floating Base, a recent technical achievement given by allies, helps support passing-by military ships by both repairs and fuel and ships in distress. Even friendly, non-allied ships may dock, for a price.

Economy: Over 20% fishery, 30% agriculture, 20% service and remaining percent industry. There is no real export of note, except perhaps birth-control products, some exotic foodstuff and certain... art. Also, there is a vain of rich, heavy materials in the mountains due to volcanic activity that is currently mined and refined. It is not a significant industry as of yet, as the efforts for it are more explored then used.

General tidbit :The name comes from an old legend that is supposedly from the island's founder. The story is a bit long, but in essence, it involves a horny mermaid helping a lost ship find this island. The mermaid supposedly stayed as she fallen in love with the first tribal leader (she was able to change its fins to legs when wished, in case you are wondering). The island was large enough for its economy to grow and eventually reached a point where it was able to form a central government.

History: Thankfully, the island's history is quite bloodless, apart from a few incidents in its distant past due to food shortage. Each new settlement was founded quite early and after taking opportunities in that area. For example, for a long time, Kiki village was a summer resort for most of the time, picking and tending various fruits over the summer.
Otherwise, most of the island's history boils down to various business between various towns and villages, a romantic tale here and there.

Religion: Freedom of Religion protected. There is one monastery that now serves more as library and tourist attraction. There were a few Churches but most are abounded, with the exception of one or two.
Noteworthy is the local polytheist religion, that still survives in the more rural areas and has smaller followings in the cities. This by itself may look rather harmless, as it is mainly hedonistic, but there is a history to them regarding violently-held polygamies. While most practitioners are casual and actually just use the religion as an excuse for their hedonistic practises, police still keep a close eye on mayor followings.

Infrastructure: The Kingdom of the Mermaid has its main farmlands next to Cupil, its two main fishing towns being Callipo and Lunda, Callipo a harbour being open for trade. Lunda also houses a research facility for the Lungfish and Saber project and serves as a landing strip.
The town's roads have been improved over history and are in a state that one with a bicycle can leisurely get around the entire island under a day. There are no cars on the island, however motorcycles are popular (although, I do encourage bicycles for casual travel). There are small trucks that currently transport goods between the islands. A railway system is planned for transporting goods, but we do not have the expertise and necessity to produce it.
Note that small communities also live in the large jungle, these are unmarked as these are usually insignificant and hard to keep track of. Scout towers and ranger huts are also not marked on this map.

Power: One may notice the radiation symbol, the island's sole power plant that supplies over 70% of the power, it is called Mugave, the son of the volcano Hangave (the volcano has been dormant for several centuries). Additional power is drawn from government sponsored solar panels and wind farms near the coast. Some geothermal plant plans have been also made, but are rejected as of yet due to the fact that the island has plenty of power.



Dungeon Keeper 3, under a different name, in the works. On kickstarter.

Government: Sovereign Duchy. Arguably a constitutional monarchy, the Arch Duke maintains a large amount of power over the parliament, though the present Duke seems content to simply make suggestions rather than attempt to strong-arm the elected government.
The Parliament itself is bicameral with an elected lower house and an appointed upper house in an attempt to prevent party politics from winning out.

The Shadow Empire has purchased two MacMillan stratellites - one communications vessel, and one surveillance vessel.

The communications vessel has enough coverage to cover the Shadow's Central Sea neighbors, while the surveillance vessel has an unspecified coverage.

The communications vessel will be part of the ShroomSat/StratTV network and will broadcast quality FUN networks to and from the Shadow Empire, including explicit pornography produced in Sarajevo.

The surveillance vessel will be used by the Shadow's military in conjunction with the FUN Force and the JASD, and will be partially paid for by the FUN Fund.


Further information shall be released at a later date.

Description:

The Republic of Mangka is an island nation consisting of a main urban center, Wanhua City and 20 counties. The city lays next to Clearwater Bay, which is a massive trading harbor where numerous cargo is transported in and out of the island. Due to the demand, a new trading port is in the process of being established in the southern part of the island known as "Shingang".

Due to previous policy of the government, other parts of the island besides Wanhua are not so urbanized, and consists of high mountains or agricultural fields. Aborginal tribes inhabit in the mountains and the tribesmen form a large portion of the nation's military. Cooperative exercises with other nations are often held in the mountains.

The massively crowded (30% of the island's population) Wanhua City is also the home to various Triad societies. These societies are currently in a balance of power and are eager to expand to foreign nations. Governmental officials and representatives are highly connected and sometimes complicated reasons are the cause of the deaths of politicians or other crime activity. Nonetheless, people have accepted the fact that the Triads actually maintain a noticable portion of a stable society.

Rumor is that the government is developing biological weapons including those focused on bioterrorism. There are also rumors that the government is funding international activity of the Triads.

The MLIT retains regulatory functions per this arrangement.

Transitional Issues
Disputes - International: The Qudlivun Free State had severed all ties to the Kingdom of New Patria in response to false allegations of intellectual property theft made by the Kingdom. The Kingdom of New Patria did eventually issue a formal apology but relations remain strained for now. The Qudlivun Free State has also closed all territorial waters and airspace to non-civilian UAR craft (defined as UAR flagged ships and aircraft or any other ships or aircraft bound to or departing from UAR territory) as the result of an unprovoked attack on a MESS member.

There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind who think it’s perfectly reasonable to strip-search a 13-year-old girl suspected of bringing ibuprofen to school, and the kind who think those people should be kept as far away from children as possible … Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between drug warriors and child molesters.” - Jacob Sullum[/size][/align]

With a whirl and a bang Texas found itself in the world of SDNET, complete with it’s historic boundaries. Now led by “El Presidente” Lonestar, Texas has joined the Multi-national Entanglement of Survivalist States, or, “M.E.S.S.”. Seeking only to go their own way, and support the advancement of mankind, the M.E.S.S. bloc has successful pushed forward to become the leaders in science and the arts.

From the capital of Austin to the “territories brought under compliance” (Eastern New Mexico) the Lone Star Republic leads the way in wildlife conservation and scientific experimentation. When asked about a 300 km “borehole” in the Permian Basin, El Presidente shrugged and said “just a little oil drilling”. That all international observers except members of the M.E.S.S. community have been prohibited from visiting the area has raised suspicions.

The Lone Star Republic is ready to work within the treaty framework of the M.E.S.S. to ensure a better tomorrow.

"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

The Sovereign Duchy of Baerne, as seen from a passing colorblind bird that's been looking at the sun for a very, very long time. I apologize for the lack of detail, but ze drawing, I am not good at it.

Forgeville is the great industrial center of Baerne Island, employing nearly 100,000 Baernish in shipbuilding and other forms of industry.

Fortress Baerne is the capital, so named because of the 75-foot high wall that surrounds the Inner City.

Springdale is a port for fishing vessels, and the Springdale Museum of the Arts is the finest on Baerne Island.

Ravensloft provides a jumping-off point for mining expeditions into the Southern Range of mountains, wherein large iron ore deposits lie.

Brush exists as a historical artifiact, it's place usurped by Springdale. However, it has begun to reassert itself as a center of ACV production.

Greenstone and Drushnal both serve as tintowns, their prime purpose being to process the tin and oil extracted all over Baerne Island.

I opt for the 500,000-person, slightly less comfortable population, since first-world standards of living are vastly out of proportion to the needs of the populace. Being an island, Baernish cuisine consists largely of seafood, specifically swordfish, since I like those. We also make a pretty decent red wine, but not in large quantities due to the lack of space for vineyards.

I will institute a Socialized system of medicine, and install a strictly merit-based education system, insuring that the best rise to the top. Any job that can be handled by a high school graduate will be, insuring that college-educated persons are not wasted in secretarial positions. Anyone found guilty of corruption or misuse of power in my government will be shot, after they "voluntarily" reveal who their conspirators are. Then the conspirators will be shot.

The Baernish folk enjoy music ranging from the Russian and classical, mainly Tchaikovsky, to the Irish and folky, since I happen to like nearly everything. There is a zero-percent illiteracy rate, due to mandatory school attendance every day, barring family emergencies, on pain of my severe displeasure.

Please, come enjoy your stay in the tropical paradise of Baern Island, where the wine is good, the water is blue, and the people are enjoyable.

The Naval Air Force consists of 4 full carrier wings (2 aboard ship, 2 training at home) of 62 birds comprising Wilkonian variants of the F-14D, the S-3, the EA-6B, and the E-2C (typical wing comprises 48 F-14Ds, 4 S-3s, 4 E-2Cs and 6 EA-6Bs). This count does not include Helicopters.

A detachment of 48 Wilkonian F/A-18Fs currently serves aboard the MESS Joint Strike Group as MESS CAG-1. The force is currenlty all Wilkonian pilots however plans are for the force to slowly transition to a more multi-national role.

The Order of Battle for the Wilkonian Air Service (WAS)

The Wilkonian Air Srevice is principally charged with defending the air space above the nation and supporting operations of any overseas action once a foothold has been established. It is divided into Defense, Strike, and Service Commands:

Defense Command:
F-22 Squadrons (16 planes each/48 total)
- VFD 101
- VFD 104
- VFD 105

F-16E Squadrons (16 planes each/48 toal)
- VFD 102
- VFD 103
- VFD 106

Strike Command
B-1B Squadrons (12 planes each/24 total)
- VFS 202
- VFS 203
B-52 Squadrons (12 planes each/12 total)
- VFS 201

Service Command
F-15 Squadrons (16 planes each/32 total)
- VFM 301
- VFM 302

KC-767 Squadron (4 planes)
- VFM 305


Future Notes:

Military: Naval aircraft procurement is now capped and CAG size is now funding limited to maintain existing force levels. FY11-FY15 proposed budgets indicate principal aquistion focus on land based squadrons and long term replacement solutions for the F-14D. An existing fund comprising 51.3Bn directly tied to all sales of silver is held separately for emergency war-funding and is not budgeted for any given year and may not be accessed except by royal decree in times of war. Currently Wilkonia is the largest Silver producing nation in Nova Terra with annual production of approximately 16.9Moz. (For reference this is equivalent to the 11th largest producing country in the real world)

Society:

-Population: 300,000 confirmed residents, second world level. 125,000 confirmed emigrants.
-Government: Unknown, but apparently, some form of oligarchy.
-Capital City: Mercavaia

Welcome to the Neverhood. It should be a wonderful, place of research and scientific betterment. So long as nothing Goes Wrong. :D .
Quote:
Welcome To The Neverhood!

Basic facts:
Land Area: 460,000 + 30,000 (Island - The Works) + 2,000 (Series of tiny islands)
Population: 29 million, 1st world living standards

National Service : Universal draft & national service since 19 years of age, (however this can be delayed until after a university education), with 1 year of service for all branches of the military, or national/civil service (Such as education or programming, which are heavily encouraged in lieu of military service). Exemptions are possible under 2 conditions:
  • 1) Exceptional scientific talent or ability, traced through aptitude programs (The National Excellence Program) - In this case free university education is given, under the condition that work is done in the government fundamental science labs for a number of years equal to 3/4 of the years in Uni. Only the best are allowed into this program, and it is highly desired due to the excellent conditions, and massive demand in the private sector for graduates.
  • 2) Exceptional business abilities (Raising companies during university or beforehand) - This is rarer, and carries far less prestige. Under this clause, exemption is granted but Income tax is increased by 15% until a variable sum (going from 500,000 to 5,000,000 USD Equiv, based on the person's basic economic status) is paid via this way.

Armed Forces:
The army is very small & demilitarized (Less than 2% GDP, slightly less than Japan), due to many personnel serving as part of the national/civil service, as well as a conscious focus on a small, professional peace-keeping army with a high level of technology & support, with a strictly defensive focus.
Military, 280,000 personnel, Comparable armored/motorized deployment to the Royal Army (Half normal starting size), 300 Jet Fighters, 18 Arleigh Burke-class Destroyers, 50 Halifax Class Frigates and 18 modern Diesel submarines. (Smaller than the standard)

Special Branch: Space Materials & Dynamics, 20 billion annual investment in Space race Technologies and designs only, as well as some high-technology components. (Infrastructure is located elsewhere in the Omsk pact, including sattellite launches).
City 42 - The second largest Research & university city in the Neverhood, built & funded jointly with City 42. Hosts a variety of foreign students (From friendly nations, especially the OMSK pact), under the condition that they meet the criteria & demands of the National Excellence Program. (Including years of service). Many end up staying. Located near the Uranium mines, but uses hydro & solar power extensively in the mountains. Future plans include a Particle accellerator, but the budget does not suffice for this yet without cutting out other ongoing projects.

The Archives - Among the largest universities & cities in the world, and home to those accepted into the National Excellence program, along with the top 15% of university students from across the Neverhood. The area is also a technological hothouse due to the large amounts of graduates of the program who go on to create technology & start-up companies. (The large lake, excellent fishing and direct railway to the sea and tourist resorts don't hurt either).

The Works Nanotech plant - Investment in High-precision manufacturing techniques is done in the island of the Works, spurred on by the depletion of resources there, and the resulting surplus in engineers and government subsidies encouraging companies to boost their R&D budgets greatly.

Nuclear, solar & Hydro power is used, with the latter being most common in the canals, and solar Mandatory on all civilian houses (4 panels minimum, 80% Government subsidy). Few Nuclear power plants exist, but construction towards them is being accelerated with foreign aid due to the increasing cost of oil from the depleting fields, and the discovery of Uranium in the mountains. (15 billion USD in training, and construction a year).

11% Of the governments GDP is directly devoted to (Fundamental) research including even R&D subsidies for private companies (A large tax-break is given) as well as the meat of government performed research by various labs, crewed by graduates of the National Excellence Program. (Irregradless of University budgets, & the shared Space & Nuclear programs)


GDP: $900 billion USD (Following growth and the recovery of stolen assets by fleeing officials after the annexation, as well as years of 10% growth).
Main industries: Energy (Nuclear,Hydro), resource extraction (gas, diamonds, uranium), Tourism, high-technology projects (including aviation, communications, computer-aided design and manufactures, High efficiency Undersea & deep-mining technology, Space technology, fiber optics).
Mineral resources exist, including oil, but are depleted or have high extraction costs (In the case of the oil), barring Uranium, Diamonds & Metals (recently discovered, and easier to reach due to silting of the channels).
Exports: High technology (Mainly to the Omsk pact), Services, patents, diamonds & diamond cutting

Map:

Image
(Stop laughing! at my drawing)

Government:
Parliament, with 3-5 parties. Monarchy has supreme power, with the king being elected by parliament out of a pool of candidates (Who must go through the national excellence program, even if only in the applied sciences, let alone political studies).

Universal Healthcare, Singapore style. (Free, basic coverage with a token payment for use, and private plans available on government organized clinics).
Immigration is encouraged, albeit with tight education or skill-set requirements, this is tricky due to the many tourists who come to the mountains, seasides and to tour the canals & lakes).
Taxes are moderate, with an income % Capital gains tax kicking in on incomes above 18k USD a year, and going up to 55% on Income Tax & 67% on Capital gains Tax (Billionares). Flat taxes are relatively low (Progressive taxes carry most of the government, along with a substantial amount of government funded companies, and patents [10 year limit]).
Research and education are the nation's mainstays, due to the centuries ago depletion of the once rich coal, gold, & oil reserves, and the renewed emphasis on "Added value labour" along with a strong educational focus on high levels of education (In all fields).
University studies are highly subsidized, but on a sliding scale, Pure arts are unsubsidized, While Physicists, material engineers, Computer Designers (AI) pay 1,500 USD a year (Not including schollarships). Private universties cost more, but many exist, especially to service foreign students, and do benefit from generous tax exemptions & grants.

A universal Genetic & fingerprint database is kept of all citizens and any entering the country. the central servers are storied underneath The Everhood in the lake. (Many Datacenters follow this practice to save on cooling costs).
Urban life is highly centralized, with extensive canal & Underground Metro & overground trains (Electrified). All the large cities have a minimum 8 block building limit, and smaller cities have a minimum 4 block limit, as a long term policy. Suburbs exist in the Capital City of "Garden", spread along the lake to its other side, with transport carried over the lake, the great bridges although entrance to the "Everhood"/Royal Palace is prohibited barring educational tours.


Title: King Hoborg the 303d, Patrician of the Waterways, Sovereign of the Everhood, Supreme Knowledge worker, Vassal of the OMSK pact, Slayer of the Klogger-beast and Marshall of the Dread War-Bot Bil.

National History will follow later. (I need to try to find a budget pie, to help me figure out if my research numbers make sense)/
EDIT: Nation added for newcomers


Edit: I have been...persuaded by my beloved, perfect overlords to hand over all reigns of power ot them ;). I am retiring from the game, to live in a small tropical island populated entirely by experiemental cloned concubines.
The Neverhood's entire policies are now managed by my trusted lieutenant K[color=red]logg [/color]da Evil. He shall run it, as he would for me, under the orders of Stash-Shep.

Incorporated Republic of Tonkin

ImageImage

Also known as: Tonkin, Inc., Tonkin, IRT

Population: ~29.8 million as of last census

Land Area: 486,000 km^2

GDP (PPP): USD $750bn

Government: Corporate Technocracy. Tonkin is run as a large corporation in a strictly meritocratic manner. Continuous performance and process reviews, complete with outside-contractor reviews, have ensured stable and efficient governance. The Board of Directors meets in Hue.

Foreign Policy: Despite major economic ties with other nations, Hue's foreign policy remains relatively isolationist, disdaining entangling alliances. What foreign policy efforts do take place tend to be based on free-trade initiatives.

Demographics: The majority of the population live in high-density cities with extensive public transportation systems. City planning has de-emphasized the need for the automobile; however, cars remain exceedingly common for jaunts outside the city and for rural use. Large scale rail and highway networks developed. Well-developed education system.

Climate: Generally dry in the interior; the fertile coastal plains have monsoon-like rain patterns.

Economy: Heavily based on mining. Extensive reserves of strategic resources; emphasis on mass nuclear power deployment, refining. Extensive mechanized rice production. Consumer goods typically imported from overseas. Surprisingly for a corporate state, the government possesses and wields extensive regulatory power. However, softer methods of coercion are preferred rather than heavy-handed investigations, fines and other such hard methods.

Military: The military is primarily organized around the defense of the Republic and to ensure the security of critical SLOCs. However, power-projection abilities remain deliberately weak. A heavy carrier force has been deliberately eschewed in favor of a large number of STOVL-equipped SAGs. The efficiency of this doctrine has been subject to considerable debate and criticism, especially from most other navies' carrier-centric forces.

Maritime Self-Defense Force:
    6 Surface Action Groups
  • 1 CSGN (2 EH-71 (AEW), 6 AV-8D)
  • 2 CGN-42 (2 MH-60R ea)
  • 1 SSN-21

+ 8 Type 212 SSK for littoral defense
+ 12 AV-8D for training (BAe Sea Harrier FA2, AESA, up-engined)

Air Self-Defense Force
108 F-116E Kestrel (LM CL-1200 proposal, F110, AESA)
96 F-114F Tomcat (Grumman ASF-14 proposal, F110, AESA)

Ground Self-Defense Force
The TGSDF is deliberately organized as a defensive force; it is much smaller than most nations' armies of comparable size. By far the largest component is Air Defense Command (ADCOM), which maintains batteries of SAMs and ABMs. ADCOM operates SM-2ER IVA and ESSM batteries. Missile Defense Command (MIDCOM) operates a midcourse-interceptor ABM (ERIS) and a 200G point-defense ABM (HEDI)

While the GSDF has relatively few armored vehicles, it does possess a significant amount of tube and rocket artillery for coastal defense. Furthermore, a large number of truck-mounted antiship missiles are deployed.

Space
No manned space program. Space launch via commercial launch services.
