Between 1924 and 1935 we have had twenty three changes of government, thirteen coups, and a dictatorship! We, the Venezelists, cannot deny the... small part we may have had to play in that. At least the people are familiar with us as the Devil they know! Unfortunately, the memories of the Anatolian Catastrophe are still fresh in the minds of the Greek people and they have not forgotten the role we played in it either.
With our leader Eleftherios Venizelos finally back in charge, we can invite our comrades back from the long exile that was forced onto them by the monarchist regime. We will need every bit of help if we are to get our country back on track!

George II is the divisive King of the Hellenes, having been restored to the throne from exile in 1935 thanks to a rigged plebicite. Rather than letting the status of this one man tear apart the Greek nation once again, the Venezelists have allowed George II to remain as a constitutional monarch based on the Swedish model.
  • The Monarchists become friendly

We may not like the king, but our country has been divided over this issue for far too long. Instead of risking yet another civil war, let us bring the Monarchists to the table and discuss terms. The time for struggle is over.

We pledge ourselves not just to those who lost their lives fighting the Turks in 1922, but to those forced form their homes and compelled to live in squalor here. It was a failure that can be avenged in only one way: the conquest of Constantinople. A great statesmen once stated, 'Constantinople is the great capital, the City, the dream and hope of all Greeks.' We shall be remembered as the great leaders who finally fulfilled the eternal dream of the Greek people, and in doing so vindicate ourselves of the events of 1922.
  • Stirring emotions over Anatolia could have
    unintended consequences...
The Asia Minor Campaign was nothing short of a disaster. Our people were slaughtered, our prestige ruined, and our political movement crushed – all in the course of three years! We cannot let this be our legacy, we must spin this in a way that our people will blame the Turks and not us – and maybe then, perhaps, we may finally fulfill our dreams of a Greater Greece after all these years...

The Germans have in the past been generously keeping us afloat, and together we have built a truly special economic relationship.
    The Schachtplan has for some time been a cornerstone of Greek central planning, but it is clear that the Schachtplan has been blatantly written in Germany's favor. Some of our country's top economists have come forward with a scheme to renegotiate the Schachtplan so that it is more beneficial to both parties, and we would be fools if we chose not to take advantage of that!

    While our Air Force Academy was founded only in 1930, the Greek people have been involved with aviation going all the way back to the Balkan Wars! We already understand the importance of a strong air force, if only we had the capabilites to make our air force stronger and larger...

    Greece has a very large shore and controls a great many islands - while the seas were once one of our greatest defensive assets, today they hold little bearing against potential foes. If our enemies hope to take our islands or land upon our shores, then first they will have to survive the bombarding of our naval bombers!

    Our armed forces would not seem all that impressive to a visiting observer, but our people have a genuine fighting spirit: a flame inside them that refuses to be snuffed out. Such a quality is rare, and we must not be afraid to exploit it so that we may face our foes on an equal footing.
    Our conscription processes are a little archaic compared to a lot of our neighbors, and our equipment is woefully outdated. It is time we modernized our conscription procedures and the equipment we are arming our soldiers with.

Ours is an army unlike any other in the world, and with it we shall finally reclaim what was taken from us.
    Cataphracts were once the envy of the Medieval world! Their speed, armor, and strength were awed by all! The cataphract of today is undoubtedy the tank, and we shall produce a class of tank truly worthy of the legacy of the Byzantine cataphract.

    Our navy is one of a few things that has consistently been a pride of Greece, even through our darkest hours. What we do today is merely the continuation of a long and proud tradition.
