Nationalist Victory in the Spanish Civil War

  The below description is one of several available for this event.
After a long and grueling civil war, the Nationalists, united under Francisco Franco, have finally defeated their Republican enemies and secured full control over Spain. Though isolated pockets of Republican troops continue to wage a guerrilla war that may well hamper the exertion of local Nationalist control in previously Republican areas, it is unlikely further coordinated resistance of any significance will materialize.

As the nation focuses on rebuilding its warn-torn cities and industry, it remains to be seen what effects the Nationalists' ideological amalgamation will have on their foreign policy, and whether the generous foreign military aid they received will be repaid.

Republican Victory in the Spanish Civil War

  The below description is one of several available for this event.
After a long and grueling civil war, the Second Republic has finally defeated their Anarchist and Nationalist enemies and secured full control over Spain. Though isolated pockets of Nationalist troops continue to wage a guerrilla war that may well hamper the exertion of local Republican control in previously Nationalist areas, it is unlikely further coordinated resistance of any significance will materialize.

Against all the odds, and relying on minimal Soviet aid, the Spanish Republic was able to maintain its democratic integrity while beleaguered both by internal and external enemies. As the nation focuses on rebuilding its warn-torn cities and industry, it remains to be seen what a democratic Spain will do in the current world crisis.

The Congress of Paris

Following extensive negotiations between the representatives of [FRA.GetNameDef], [ITA.GetNameDef], [POR.GetNameDef] and [SPA.GetNameDef], the Congress of Paris has resolved to redraw the borders of Africa, with [FRA.GetLeader] calling the result "the greatest success of French diplomacy in written history".

The governments of other colonial powers were quick to dennounce the agreement, calling it "a threat to peace and good order in the continent".

With the agreement assigning vast tracts of land to countries that don't yet own them, it is unlikely that the plan drawn up in Paris can be implemented without bloodshed.

French Government returns to Paris

After negotiations at the highest level, [GER.GetLeader] today announced that the German military administration of northern France would soon come to an end, and the territories returned to full French sovereignity. In return, [VIC.GetLeader] announced that his government had joined the Pact of Steel.

German troops currently defending those areas will for the moment remain, until they can be replaced by French troops. More controversial questions, like the status of Alsasce-Lorraine, were not discussed, and by all appearances the territory has remained under German administration.

As part of the negotiations, [This.GetStresaConcessions] While the leaders of this new alliance claim that the agreement is simply aiming to maintain the peace in Europe, many diplomats agree that it was primarily intended to constrain Germany.

France realigns her Foreign Policy

President [FRA.GetLeader] has announced a major shift in French foreign policy, including a thorough review of strategic alliances and political guarantees made by previous administrations.

In particular, the web of alliances tying France to countries in Eastern Europe will be "under scrutiny", which many observers take to mean that it will be dissolved.

Leaders in [POL.GetNameDef], [CZE.GetNameDef] and [ROM.GetNameDef] have so far refused to comment on the issue or on any possible reactions.

The Franco-German Pact

[FRA.GetLeader] and [GER.GetLeader] have met in Berlin to discuss the political and strategic situation in Central Europe. While details from the meeting are scarce, and no official communiqué has been released, observers have noted a clear shift in [FRA.GetAdjective] and [GER.GetAdjective] rhetoric and policy towards the Benelux countries.

Where the German minority in Belgium was once a constant drumbeat for German propaganda, it is now only mentioned in passing, while noting that Belgium is "an artificial construct, not a nation; merely a collection of nations thrown together haphazardly" and putting great emphasis on the large French-speaking population.

[FRA.GetLeader] claims the Throne of France

In a ceremony in [This.GetFrenchCoronationCity], [FRA.GetLeader] has officially been proclaimed [This.GetFrenchRoyalTitle].

His rise is widely considered a direct result of the inability of the Third Republic to provide political stability in an environment that was increasingly defined by violent clashes between those on the extreme ends of the political spectrum. He now faces the difficult task of rebuilding and reuniting a deeply divided country, with many observers pointing to the role the far-right leagues played in his ascent to power as a sign that the "[This.GetFrenchRoyalTitle]" is, in fact, merely a ruler by the grace of the right-wing mob.

French Communists Take Power

Following a long period of political and economic reforms, the communist ministers in the Popular Front government today demanded that the remaining ministers of the center either step down and acknowledge the Communist Party as the sole party of government, or join the Communist Party immediately.

At the same time, armed workers from a number of large, government-owned factories moved to occupy strategic locations around the country. The army, under orders from Paris, has remained in the barracks and refused to intervene.

By nightfall, the Communist coup was complete and the new government had secured power.

Carlist Uprising in Spanish Civil War

Wary of being increasingly sidelined and having their influence over the Nationalist Front more and more curtailed, the Carlist forces under Manuel Fal Conde have renounced their affiliation with the Nationalist cause. Declaring their own, independent insurrection, Carlist Requetés, predominantly in the north of the country, have turned on their erstwhile allies, while at the same time continuing the fight against their Republican enemies.

The effects on their military position in the civil war are being downplayed by the Nationalist leadership, but it is evident that the current chaos presents ample opportunity to the Republicans.

Anarchist Uprising in Spanish Civil War

Continued government attempts at reasserting centralized control over the mostly independently-acting Anarchist communes in northwestern Spain, as well as Stalinist repression of dissident communist viewpoints, has now led to full-blown in-fighting in the Republican front.

Initially limited to street fighting and low-scale clashes between militias and government or Stalinist forces, the unwillingness for either side to compromise has meant the conflict has rapidly escalated in just a few days. The reallocation of military resources to deal with this internal threat means the frontlines against the Nationalists have been noticeably weakened.

The Franco-Spanish Union

[From.GetAdjective] Monarchy Restored

After over half a decade without a monarch, the elation of the welcoming crowd in Madrid was hard to contain as [From.GetSPBkingloc] entered the city this morning. Cheered on by jubilant on-lookers, the royal procession proceeded through the streets of Madrid to the San Jerónimo el Real church.

In a pompous ceremony, [From.GetSPBking2loc].

Though much of the nation still lies in ruins, perhaps the new King may serve as a unifying and healing force, and guide [From.GetNameDef] to a more glorious future.

[From.GetAdjective] Independence War

In recent months, [SOV.GetAdjective]-[From.GetAdjective] relations have become increasingly strained, and independent observers have noticed a systematic removal of communists from [From.GetAdjective] positions of influence. In response, [SOV.GetNameDef] has created a direct occupation zone in the east of the country, attempting to bring the recalcitrant [From.GetAdjective] government to heel.

Now, this situation has come to a head, with [From.GetLeader] making an impassioned broadcast, declaring [From.GetAdjective] independence and rallying his countrymen to "rid the nation of Soviet influence once and for all". At the same time a major [From.GetAdjective] surprise attack on the occupation zone has begun.

As [From.GetAdjective] strength increases, the government has now seen fit to announce the formation of a new communist alliance, by name of the International Bureau of Revolutionary Socialist Unity, which opposes both the Trotskyist and Stalinist interpretations of Marxism.

Beginning with the "London Bureau", a committee made up of independent communist organizations residing in London, they now welcome all nations who "desire a path for communist ideals without outside meddling" to join their ranks.

Anarchism Successful

Despite some time having elapsed since the conclusion of the Spanish Civil War, the expected implosion of the Anarchist communes in Iberia has not come to pass. To the contrary, the communes have reportedly succeeded in stabilizing and rebuilt the region, and continue to attract like-minded immigrants from nations across the world.

In light of continued international hostility the communes have however elected to stay organized under their "defense council", and continue on a course of extensive armament programs.

The Iberian nations join the [ENG.GetFactionName]

[POR.GetAdjective] and [?global.POR_iberian_summit_spanish_tag.GetAdjective] politicians have been working together, appealing to the [ENG.GetAdjective] government and seeking to be admitted into the [ENG.GetFactionName]. If they just seek protection against foreign threats or if they are truly willing to take part in the fight for Democracy, it is yet unclear.

However, after assessing the situation, [ENG.GetNameDefCap] decided that this would be beneficial for their interests and finally allowed the Iberian nations to join the alliance.

The Iberian nations join the [GER.GetFactionName]

[POR.GetAdjective] and [?global.POR_iberian_summit_spanish_tag.GetAdjective] politicians have been working together, appealing to the [GER.GetAdjective] government and seeking to be admitted into the [GER.GetFactionName]. If this is an opportunistic maneuver to acquire new territories or if it is just a desperate attempt to avoid occupation, it is yet unclear.

However, after assessing the situation, [GER.GetNameDefCap] decided that this would be beneficial for their interests and finally allowed the Iberian nations to join the alliance.

A Royal Wedding in Brazil

Today, Dom Duarte Nuno, Duke of Braganza, married Princess Maria Francisca of Orléans-Braganza in the Petrópolis Cathedral in Brazil. This marriage has not only reconciled the Portuguese and Brazilian Brigantine houses, but has also united the Miguelists and the Liberal Braganzas, leaving behind the rivalries between the Portuguese royal family and stirring up the monarchist sentiment in both countries.

It is said that, following the ceremony, Dom Duarte engaged in several conversations with known Brazilian and Portuguese royalist ladies and gentlemen, where the words 'restoration' and 'Monarchy' were openly pronounced.

The Unification of Iberia

Portuguese and Spanish politicians held numerous meetings during the last months, where they discussed the possibility of becoming a unified left-wing state in Iberia, governed by politicians from both nations.

After a long period of preparations and negotiations, today Portuguese and Spanish leaders have officially stated the formation of [POR.GetNameDef], a new state where Iberian citizens will choose the leaders that better represent collective interests and where they will be able to roam freely.

Andalusia Restored!

Centuries ago, the Moors were driven out of Iberia in the reconquista. Now, [From.GetOldAdjective] forces have advanced deep into southern Iberia and have begun establishing Moorish settlements in the region for the first time in centuries. [From.GetOldNameDefCap] has as such been reorganised into a new nation known as “[From.GetNameDefCap]”, reclaiming the legacy of the ancient Sultanate which once ruled all of Iberia.

The ancient Umayyad Caliphate governed almost the entirety of the Islamic world; from Iberia in the West to Persia in the East. Perhaps [From.GetLeader] desires to emulate this old Empire and reunite the disparate peoples of the Middle-East, North Africa, and Europe.

Polynesia United!

With the islands of Hawai’i, Aotearoa, Tahiti, and Samoa firmly under [From.GetOldAdjective] control, [From.GetLeader] has proclaimed that the country shall now be known as [From.GetNameDef] and is the rightful home of all Pacific peoples.

There is much rejoicing across the Polynesian world, with some even going as far as proclaiming [From.GetLeader] as the one true successor to Kamehameha; the Hawaiian King who fulfilled the Naha Prophecy just over two centuries ago.
