    Name of Nation: The Welsh Empire Form of Government: One party-Monarchy state Location and Borders: The British Isles. Military Description: 150,00 Welshmen, with 1,000 suicide-sheep in reserve. The air-force consists of 1,000 fighter-bomber jets and 2,000 men. The navy consists of a fishing boat and a plastic dinghy. (Basically, non existent) Commercial Statistics: coal, petroleum, natural gas, limestone, chalk, gypsum, silica, rock salt, china clay, iron ore, tin, silver, gold, lead. Lotta sheep too. History: During WIII, Wales immediately declared independence while the British were at war. Using local farmers, several Welsh army regiments and mercenaries, they took large chunks of England and southern Scotland over a course of 5 years. Due to the fact that guns were outlawed and the current Conservative government was unpopular, most British people took it in their stride and some even began calling themselves Welsh. By the end of the war, with the entire island of Great Britain under Welsh rule. Under massive debt, they sold their entire navy to the independent Irish nation and used the money to pay off the mercenaries and modernise the government. The royal family was largely executed under the orders of Prince of Wales, Prince Charles. When he saw the Welsh taking over, he seized his chance to become King and ordered the murder of his friends and relatives. He offered his services to the provisional Welsh government and to everyone's surprise, was offered to become the King of Wales. The Welsh Empire has largely modernised the government, getting rid of all English reforms to the NHS. The capital was moved to Cardiff, where the population has exploded with English immigrants. Green power is now powers most of the country, with large Windfarms being built in the Irish Sea as we speak. The Welsh Empire has taken little part in world affairs, apart from the occasional trade with Ireland. Wales faces many problems with nationalistic groups, such as the Scottish, the Islamic South Yorkshire, English nationalism and even London Nationalism, which hopes to create a city state out of London from the large Black majority. Despite all this, the Welsh Empire is relatively stable and has only just pulled itself out of mass unemployment and is looking up. Demographics: White: 87% Gypsy: 0.1% Asian British: 7.0 Black British: 3.0% Mixed Race: 2% Foes: France. Fuggin' basturds. Suggestions: Sheep hybrid programmes, sheep suicide bombers, sheep nukes, sheep soldiers, sheep spies(sheep sapping mah sentry), sheep warriors and sheep fighter-bombers.

    Group Name: Severnoy Proyekta ("Proyekt")

    Leader: Alexander Nadezavich

    Activities: Mercenary Group

    History: Proyekt is the name of the sister company of the ASN, headed by Alban Cônté. It, too, was created by Cônté and the Désespoir Corp to perform missions related to a free military force that did not answer to the insanity of modern politics. But whereas ASN was created to perform missions in Central Asia, Proyekt's mission is to engage in paramilitary operations in Russia, Eastern Europe, and the Caucasus. Their modus operandi is quite similar to the ASN, as it is another head of the same beast alongside the Middle Eastern Al-Raiah Sah'kanah.

    Alexander Nedazavich is another veteran of the Third World War, having fought in the Pacific Theater against US and Canadian forces for Alaska. While that campaign was a disastrous failure (an increasingly imperialist Canadian government would later claim Alaska), Nadezavich was quite well respected amongst his men for tactical skill. He returned to Saint Petersburg a hero, although his faith in the Russian government was shaken. Putin in particular had turned increasingly hardline while his austerity measures denied Nadezavich the support that he and his men had been promised.

    Cônté's organization offered a safe haven for Nadezavich, and he slowly became privy to Cônté's ideas about a free soldier's nation. This, combined with his loyalty to the company and his actions during the War netted Nadezavich promotion after promotion until eventually he was called upon to head Proyekt. He would later go on to become a close friend to Cônté, often enjoying the distinct pleasures of an oligarchical lifestyle in tandem. Nadezavich can be described as a Russian oligarch playboy, and his estate is rumored to house dozens of models in a personal harem. Other eccentricities include a love of extreme sports and hunting.

    The organization has been involved with dozens of conflicts in Russia and the surrounding area. They are known as a dynamic organization capable of both smashing revolutions and keeping the peace afterwards. They have been deployed to Chechnya, the Nagorno-Karabakh, and Poland, amongst other places. Their numbers are rumored to be in the hundreds of thousands, mostly consisting of veterans and young dissenters unwilling to join Putin's regular military force. Technological capabilities are on par with the ASN's, consisting of contemporary military equipment like unmanned vehicles and advanced mechanized and aeronautical capabilities. Naval forces specializing in anti-piracy are also known to be in use, although these are mostly corvettes, small boats, and the occasional amphibious assault ship.

    Military GPS Network
    The FSA has recently launched a dozen satellites, revealed to be the first ones in a military GPS network, which will in turn allow aircraft to use a GPS instead of a compass, which will allow the aircraft to utilize the magnetic generators used in nearly every home and business in Antarctica. The current network does not cover the entire Earth, but it does cover areas that Antarctica aircraft may need to go, such as Poland (In case they decide to take over more nations) and Africa ( Aid, diplomatic trips, etc.). The satellites currently launched were launched using two ASAO Phoinex III Heavy boosters, each of which had a payload of six satellites, which used their onboard maneuvering systems to thrust into the required orbit.

    Current Army Stats
    -150,000 total ground troops (Surplus weapons)
    -2,000 aircraft total (Outdated)
    -20 Dirigibles
    -25,000 decent, combat-capable ships, many of which are usually used as cargo ships.

    Group Name: Armée sans Nations Leader: Alban “Paix” Cônté Activities: Mercenary Group History: La Armée sans Nations was born from the early fires of World War 3. Founded on the ideology of Alban Cônté the ultimate goal of ASN is to carve out a corner of the world where a soldier may not fight his or her own brother. And to be free of the political strife that rocks the international world. This may draw itself to carving a bloody swathe in the landscape to create its end means, or coming to bring the world armies to heel before it. Alban Cônté was born in Toulouse, France. He was both a scholarly kid, and physically fit. On top of it all, a French and European nationalist. Upon completing his primary education he volunteered for military service. He served several tours of duty before opting for the chance to join the Commandement des Opérations Spéciales (COS) or the French Special Forces. Here, he defined himself as an adept soldier with tours of duty in Mali and abroad, eventually being promoted to the rank of an officer. Though commissioned, it did not stop him from being out in the field where he continued to showcase his prowess with a sort of romantic philosophy. Come the onset of World War 3, the natural state of the world came crashing in around him and his ideology of national service became questioned as he watched men he held as brothers be pit against each other. The missions tasked to him by his motherland taxed him even more when Paris demanded he hunt and kill a man he held as a friend. The mission was ultimately a success, and though a foot note in the war it was a major turning point in his life. By war's end, he had given up on the foibles of politics and excused himself with honor from his post. Entering the private sphere, he organized himself and scoured the world for any veterans who remembered the war, and like he were scarred by its atrocities. From this group, he built up the solid core that would be the center of ASN: Désespoir Corp. Though the Désespoir Corp, Alban and his colleagues sold themselves out to private organizations and willing nations without a standing army as a spec-op group for hire. Building up their reputation, and Alban's mission. Several years after a sizable following had accumulated around Alban based on his renown in the field of soldiers for fortune and he was a man of legend in those darkened circles, attracting more lost veterans, or thugs. And on them, he laid down the groundwork of his new world vision. A state, or world that'd free every soldier. One that has no outer allegiance. Exists outside the confined realms of arbitrary and insane politics. One where the duty of the soldier is his own, and not determined by the state. Wars are not declared for inane reason. Politics at an end. Freedom of enemies. The foibles of politics will no longer dictate who will be the enemy in the next decade or century, as there would be no more enemies. War will come to an end. Soldiers will be heroes again and not pawns. Alban's journey and the freshly declared ASN – with the Désespoir Corp at its center – organized itself out of arbitrary, nomadic, and decentralized existence and marched to Central Asia where ethnic and religious tensions between the many Turkic tribes conflicted with Arab and Iranian populations as well as Russian. And the growing idea of Turkish nationalism under that of a revived Tengri flag had broken out into regional strife. Here in these conditions, the skills of ASN could be realized by either being for hire, or simply inciting tensions higher to deal with the unwanted faction heads. To compensate additionally and for flexibility, Alban removed from ASN, in secret, two proxy organizations, answering to Alban through a proxy. These being Al-Raiah Sah'kanah and Proyekt. The more public face of the organization is handled by the proxy ExcIntel, based out of Denver Colorado as a registered private military corporation handling in logistics and other areas of military outsourcing. Often times the R+D of the other faces running through here in the reproduction of supplies and the cataloging of acquired specs. ASN and its proxies are armed primarily off of the remnants of technology from the last war and from design specs bought off the black market. As well, political allies have made under the table donations in wares to the mission in the hopes of being spared the politically nihilist organization's brunt when they come reeling. Supplies and equipment are also scooped up from the field. Any reproductions needed are handles out to a string of international private outsourcing to specialist industry unrelated to ASN or any of its affiliated proxies.

    Name of Nation: New Italian Republic Form of Government: Oligarchy Location and Borders: Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Tunisia Military Description: The forces of the New Italian Republic are trained for all climates. Forced to endure six months of training in the Tunisian heat, then trained for a further six months in the Alps. All other nations in the Mediterranean are too weak to object to constant military drills run by the N.I.R, which helps to train their navy. The Air Force is severely lacking and low on numbers. Approximately 5,000,000 men, being spared from WWIII. Commercial Statistics: Trade with the other nations in the Mediterranean is frequent, making up for any resources the N.I.R can not produce on their own. While WWIII ravaged the land around them, the Italians focused on building the tourist industry, with the Colosseum almost functional. (( This will be important for the "screw Poland and Indonesia" arch. )) The majority of income now comes from tourists and trade, with wine and oil a popular export. History: During WWIII, Italy maintained a strong neutral policy, getting rich of trade with warring powers. They slowly began building up a stronger military, with emphasis on training and discipline. Spain was involved in the war, which weakened their military, allowing the opportunistic Italian government to sweep in and take over the war weary country. After recouping their losses, which were few, they used Spain as their staging ground for an invasion of Portugal. Now with control of the Strait Of Gibraltar, Italy changed its name to the New Italian Republic and decided that they needed to secure the support of their new territories. Quite strangely, several members of parliament began to 'vanish.' What was left was a core group of elites, only the richest people of all the territories of the N.I.R. This new funding to the government resulted in a massive spending boom, with the government investing in tourism projects and public works. In 2018, a Tunisian freedom fighter seeking to lead his rebels away from the persecution of the government, led his group across the Strait Of Gibraltar, through Spain and then across the Alps into Italy. These rebels were crushed immediately by a swift response from the N.I.R government, who then mounted an attack on Tunisia in response. The territory was very quickly annexed. Greece, wishing to recover from its lose in the war, expressed their wishes to join the N.I.R. They were accepted. Meanwhile, in the North, Poland began growing in power, acquiring several new territories. The worried N.I.R began to heavily fortify the border and grow worried and distrustful, although still allowing trade to flow in the Mediterranean. Demographics: Mostly Italian, Greek, Tunisian and Spanish, with several Polish immigrants. Foes: Poland. Indonesia. Suggestions: LET'S BLOW UP THEM INDONESIAN REPUBLICS!


    All accepted! Also, yeah, that map looks better than the one I out in the IC. Its too bad we can't use the good old UE map.

    Quote from Exilius
    Name of Nation: Nihonacela Form of Government: Unitary parliamentary executive constitutional monarchy. This type of monarchy gives at least significant (but not absolute) political influence on the nation, putting the Emperor on par with the Prime Minister. If compared to a presidential government, the Emperor is on the status of President, and the Prime Minister, the vice president. The elected legislature, the Diet, is still present. Location and Borders: Japan, the Koreas, and Guam. Military Description: A 4-year training program is enforced for troops, with a 3 month long break every summer. The most important courses are combat training and physical conditioning, but one can also choose the following courses:
    • Medical assistance
    • Leadership skills
    • Combat engineering
    • Precision targeting
    There are quite some robots in military use, about several dozens, but these are still inferior to the American nations. Troops range in 400,000. Navy ships range in 300, and ground vehicles 3,000. Only two space combat vehicles are commissioned, which are as small as a house. Commercial Statistics: Agriculture, mining and fishing are major contributions to the growth of the Nihonacelan economy. The Japanese has plenty of fertile land as always. The vastness of sea around the nation is a preferred fishing place, with thousands of fishing boats heading out and return with piles of salmon, tuna, sardines and many others. The North Korean territories has plenty of minerals, left untouched by the "hermit kingdom" when it was still independent. History: Another hell to experience. That was the words of the previous Emperor just before WWIII broke out. The mainland has experienced thrice the nuclear troubles during it's history. The WWII nuclear bombings of two cities, the earthquake-induced Fukushima nuclear meltdown of 2011, and now, WWIII, the Nihonacelas did not want any more of these. Some seceded into Japanese territory out of safety, and that includes the North Koreans, who, having tried to provoke a nuclear war many times with other nations, finally experienced one, and though it was not as much as an apocalyptic one, didn't expect exactly what they wanted. The Japanese mainland, although expecting a full blown-out invasion in their country, only received some force since they had a small role in the war. At the end of WWIII, prosperity got it's way again. Space projects were growing large, using experimental robots made by various teams engineers as observation satellites and some, repair workers for the satellites. Three space stations are currently in construction, two equipped with some weaponry for combat against whatever tries to take down the other, unarmed one, which is larger than the two. A preparation for the next possible war is in effect since the end of the last war, with mass military draftings now in effect. Demographics: Current demographics are: 470 million people 51.3% Japanese 29.6% Korean 18.1% Guam 1% other Foes: None. Suggestions: MAPS. MORE DETAILED HISTORY. THAT IS ALL. Also, dibs on red.

    ((The map is coming soon, like, in this post.))

    Air force Expansion
    The FSA council has voted to commission multiple dirigibles for it's air force. These airships are designed with an oversize gas bag separated into multiple sections by internal armor plating, the purpose of this different design is to prevent the craft from being brought down by a single hit from a pistol or anything stupid like that. It would take multiple AA rounds to take down one of these, or about half as many perfectly placed heavy artillery shots. Of course, incendiary rounds will not work, because the gas bag is made using nylon, which was then treated with fire retardants three times over. After a compartment takes a hit, gas will be diverted from the opposite compartment to keep the ship steady. All airships will be filled with helium. NOT HYDROGEN.

    Ground Army Troubles
    We have no vehicles aside from unarmed transports (See: Sedans with camo painted on). So yeah, slight disadvantage there. It should also be noted that we don't actually have any aircraft that can travel more than a few miles off-continent due to everything we have running on electricity. Sure, we could put those little generator things on them, but they use lots of magnets, and magnets would disrupt the pilots compass. Suggested solution for this: Launch a private GPS network for the military and replace the compass with a GPS. Of course, Mr. McClain has pushed to line up all the launches for the next five years as station module launches, but we think that the rest of the council will agree to send up some GPS satellites.

    Current Army Stats
    -150,000 total ground troops (Surplus weapons)
    -2,000 aircraft total (Outdated)
    -10 Dirigibles
    -25,000 decent, combat-capable ships, many of which are usually used as cargo ships.
    -5 Reusable spacecraft (Unarmed)

    Canadian Offer
    The FSA has accepted the Canadian offer to extract oil from Antarctica, as the FSA has little use for it (all cars in the FSA are electric). Of course, it could come in handy for their airforce and navy, but they can just import the fuel they for the ships and aircraft not converted to electric motors (Most ships carry hydroelectric generators, slowing them down, but greatly reducing fuel costs and allowing extended range).

    Research Update
    The plasma engine tests have been successful, and they seem to be a good choice for station-keeping and long-range probes. Of course, Fergus McClain is trying to come up with ways to make the plasma eject faster. That's all he ever thinks about most of the time, trying to get things in space to go faster, which is funny when you take into account the fact that he and his co-manager have already changed the entire FSA power grid by creating compact generating devices that are cheap enough to be bought by anyone. You would think doing something that big once would be enough, but noooo, he has to go and actually use those physics and aerospace engineering degrees he has.

    [FINALLY!!! :D] Application: Name: Indonesian Republic, or IR Form of government: Look up :P Location and borders: Indonesia (not including Papua New Guinea), Malaysia, the Phillipines, Christmas islands, Cocos (Keling) Islands, Nicobar Islands, spratly Islands, Ashmore & Cartier islands, Palau Islands, and the Lesser and greater Hawaiian Islands. Military description: Indonesian Military is very built up because its northern neighbor, China, had become a fear-inducing conquesting nation, taking over nearby land. Their defenses are nearly impenetrable, and they have a large navy, being a seafaring nation. The army is not large, but the air force is almost as large as the navy. Commercial statistics: Resources: petroleum, tin, natural gas, nickel, timber, bauxite, copper, fertile soils, coal, gold, silver Pros: With heavy tourism, Indonesia has a large amount of income, and their defenses from WWIII's end provide protection for their citizens. Cons: Near large countries and susceptible to attack. Many different islands (18,307, 8,844 named, 922 inhabited), hard to keep hold and control in all. History: Indonesia's countries remained fairly neutral throughout WWIII, and instead of growing large through conquering, the areas of Palau, parts of Australia, Malaysia, Timor, and Hawaii banded together and eventually merged under Indonesia's powerful ruling. They made a large defense system so strong that nearly nothing can pass through without permission. They have recently started a space program:
    After the Hubble telescope encountered a heavy solar flare on October 8th, 2014, knocking down its vital systems, the space race started in the late 1950s was brought to a near halt. The space station had ceased most productive scientific activity, with only one or two people in it at a time, simply taking care of regular duties on it. As the new NASA rockets’ development was halted to 2029 for completion due to the war, and further halted indefinitely due to the government problems, space’s exploration was all but halted… In 2024, however, a group of people on Sipura made a spaceworthy rocket based upon NASA’s tests, capable of bringing 50 pounds worth of a payload into space for only $10,000. They send the idea to the Indonesian government, and they accept. A new federal group forms on Sipura, designated ‘The NRSE’ in Tua Pejat. They, after about 3 years, have developed a telescope called the Hawking Telescope, after Stephen Hawking. It was made to study already-discovered exoplanets, and probe them for possible life. They claim it to start construction in 2030, and it will be finished by 2038. They say that by 2040, it will become the next Hubble, scanning distant stars and looking at galaxies for signs of life in the universe…
    They are at the zenith of their reign over the volcanic islands, keys, and rocks that is called Indonesia. Demographics: Population: 259,482,671 (2027 Census)66.8 Ethnic groups: Indonesia: Javanese: 45.8% Sundanese: 12.9% Batak: 4.2% Balinese: 3.9% Madurese: 3.7% Bantenese: 3.2% Malay: 3% Minangkabau: 2.9% Banjarese: 2.5% Betawi: 2.4% Sasak: 2.1% Bugis: 2% Makassarese: 1.8% Other: 9.6% Others: Unknown as of now... Suggestions: Can I have natural disasters for my country? P.S. the Capital of Indonesia was moved to Makassar and the current year is 2027.


    ((Accepted! I think 3 people is enough to start, at least for now. Since we're pretty small and need to get this going... I also really wanna do stuff again.))

    Bridge of the SLPV Prospector. Current location: Port Haven
    "Release the clamps, full speed ahead. Take us to launch position B-3. Stay outside of quarantine zones for launch positions B-1 and A-6." Orders Fergus McClain, addressing the crew of one of the many Spacecraft Launch Platform Vessels operated by the ASAO. Launch position B-3 is used for equatorial launches.
    "Yes, Mr. Mclain" Replies the ship's navigator, tapping the buttons on his touchpad to take the ship to the desired coordinates.
    The Prospector is the largest and most illustrious SLPV in the fleet, and it is normally used for long range probe launches or the ferrying of structures into space. On this specific mission, it will launch nothing but a small propulsion testbed. A low-acceleration plasma engine test, nothing special. Of course, plasma engines are McClain's favorite, so he has personally taken command of the Prospector for this mission.
