In 1936, the '''British Raj''' is one of the largest countries in terms of manpower, area and natural resources. The Raj contributed over 2.5 million soldiers to the Allied war effort, making its army the largest volunteer force in the history of the World. However, they are still a puppet of the United Kingdom and their fate is inevitably tied to that of the UK.

The British Raj was the result of piecemeal annexation of Indian princely states by the British East India Company. After the failed Indian War for Independence in 1857, the British Government took control of India from the BEIC and the Raj was born with Queen Victoria being given the title of Empress of India. Modern day India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar form part of the British Raj in 1936. Although some territories like Rajputana were independently governed under British suzerainty, they have been abstracted under the overall control of the Raj for game play purposes.

During World War 2, British India fielded the largest volunteer army in the war, and used it to contain the Japanese advance into the Indian Ocean basin, as well as stopping Japanese advances into the Indian subcontinent. The Battle of Imphal was a critical victory that stopped the Japanese army's advances from occupied Burma. The war, however, was not without consequences to the people of the Raj, as wartime needs for the military often superseded any civilian concerns. A massive famine in the Bengal region was blamed upon British refusal to send food supplies there in favor of sending those supplies to the European and African theaters.

The British Raj suffered politically during the war as different groups vied to command leadership of the then flourishing Indian independence movement. The Muslim League and the Indian National Congress disagreed on their opinions on supporting the British war effort, with the League backing the British and Congress calling for supporting the British in exchange for concessions. Eventually, the British government agreed to consider Indian independence after the war ended. The last Viceroy of India, Louis Mountbatten, left in 1947, just two years after the war.

The Raj starts with only 2 research slots. It can get a third quite quickly, but can't unlock any more until becoming independent. However, it does get access to technology sharing from being in the Commonwealth. Becoming a dominion will increase the maximum cost reduction to {{green|-50%}} from {{green|-25%}}.

The British Raj in 1936 is beset with communal divisions between the Hindus and the Muslims, and the Burmese in the extreme east outright rejects any affinity with the Raj, insisting that they are a separate nation that was unreasonably incorporated into the Raj by the British only because of geographical proximity. In the game, this is represented by the states of Peshawar, Punjab, Quetta, Baluchistan and Sind in the west, and Mandalay and Burma in the east being classified as occupied states, which significantly reduces the amount of manpower, resources, and industrial capacity the player can utilize from these states.

Otherwise, it does not start with any national spirits and the ones it gains are dependent on the choices it make in the generic national focus tree.

 +
; Industry
 +
: Although the British Raj starts with a total of 14 civilian factories, 1 of them is unavailable at game start due to insufficient compliance. All in all, it has 47 free slots, enough to build up a much larger industrial base.
 +
; Resources
 +
: The Raj starts with significant reserves of rare earth minerals and enough steel and oil to field a sizeable force. Note that since its tungsten reserves are entirely located in Burma and Mandalay, both of them occupied states, only a fraction of tungsten is available for use at game start.

{{SVersion|1.9}}

In 1936, the British Raj starts with a small and under-equipped army, as well as a small air force. It does not possess a navy. Due to its starting national spirits vastly reducing its recruitable population, it only has a total manpower of 353.41K, of which 99.00K is tied up in the army, and 1.60K in the air force, leaving 252.82K available for recruitment.

Socialist India should try to remain in the Commonwealth as long as possible, aiming at an exit in 1939. Being in the Commonwealth gives excellent bonuses to research. Note: as soon as WT reaches 50%, Loyalist India will be able to call in the UK in the civil war. Therefore, you need to finish the civil war before Germany declares war on Poland.
 
 
 
Releasing Pakistan as a puppet will give you full access (almost) to those 60 million, as Pakistan will lack the maluses and will have full cores on its territory.
 
 
 
National focus: Go first down the industry focus tree until unlocking the research slot. As soon as WT reaches 10%, go for elections, and go straight to asking the USSR for help and immediately thereafter pick the “Quit India movement”. This will give you autonomy enough to unlock the “invite British capital” focus for some free factories. Since you are declaring war for independence, you won’t need more autonomy.
 
 
 
Hire the communist advisor to control a larger fraction of India when the civil war starts.
 
 
 
Make sure to have 30 divisions so you can send volunteers to China. You want the PRC to survive and the Japanese to not win the war.
 
 
 
After independence: take Siam, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, Afghanistan,  Iraq and Iran. The allies will be fighting, and will have no interest in sending guarantees. Concentrate on Japan when WW2 starts unless Russia is doing poorly. Boost communism in China to help your future ally.
 
 
 
Fully annex Siam, otherwise Japan will steal her with their national focus. But you should puppet Iran after taking the oil rich province along the border with Iraq.
 
 
 
When you have a strong industry, modify your fighters and CAS with increased range. You'll need for getting at Japan.
 
 
 
Japan is difficult to invade. But you should be able to do it with air support and good units. If you drop a couple of nukes, you’ll only need a few VPs. In the peace treaty use your discount to satellites to grab as much as possible.  
 
 
 
{{SVersion|1.3}}
 
* The British Raj can trade with Iran for oil and can get at least 8 steel from China. Since they share borders, there's no risk of convoy interception or being cut off. It won't be enough, but get what you can from there for that reliability before looking elsewhere.
 
* When world tension reaches 40%, lend-leasing to China becomes an option to gain some XP. Lend-leasing to Japan tends to result in the war ending too quickly to gain any real benefit.

British Raj
British Raj.png
Capital:
Delhi

Government type:
Non-Aligned, Despotic

Faction:
Neutral

In 1936, the British Raj is one of the largest countries in terms of manpower, area and natural resources. However, they are still a puppet of the Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom and their fate is inevitably tied to that of the UK.

Historical background

The British Raj was the result of piecemeal annexation of Indian princely states by the British East India Company. After a series of failed mutinies in 1857, the British Government took control of India from the BEIC and the Raj was born with Queen Victoria being given the title of Empress of India. Modern day India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar form part of the British Raj in 1936. Although some territories like Rajputana were independently governed under British suzerainty, they have been abstracted under the overall control of the Raj for game play purposes.

During World War II, British India fielded the largest volunteer army in the war, and used it to contain the Japanese advance into the Indian Ocean basin, as well as stopping Japanese advances into the Indian subcontinent. The Battle of Imphal was a critical victory that stopped the Flag of Japan Japanese army's advances from occupied Burma. The war, however, was not without consequences to the people of the Raj, as wartime needs for the military often superseded any civilian concerns. A massive famine in the Bengal region was blamed upon British refusal to send food supplies there in favor of sending those supplies to the European and African theaters.

The British Raj suffered politically during the war as different groups vied to command leadership of the then flourishing Indian independence movement. The Muslim League and the Indian National Congress disagreed on their opinions on supporting the British war effort, with the League backing the British and Congress calling for supporting the British in exchange for concessions. Eventually, the British government agreed to consider Indian independence after the war ended. The last Viceroy of Flag of India India, Louis Mountbatten, left in 1947, just two years after the war.

National focus

British Raj's national focus tree.
Main article: British Raj national focus tree

Flag of British Raj British Raj, along with other nations of the British commonwealth, gets a unique national focus tree as part of the Together for Victory expansion. Without the expansion, the British Raj utilizes the Generic national focus tree.

The British Raj has a unique focus tree with 3 main branches:

Provincial Elections
Focuses on gaining independence and modifies the debilitating national spirits of the British Raj.
Lessons of the Great War
Focuses on expanding the army, establishes the air force and gives elite infantry divisions.
Great Indian Peninsula Railway
Focuses on building infrastructure, naval dockyards, and gives extra research slots.


Technology

The British Raj starts with the fewest technologies in the Commonwealth, lacking any tank or naval technologies whatsoever.

Army Technology Naval Technology Air Technology Electronics & Industry
  • Infantry Eq. I
  • Engineer Company I
  • Recon Company I
  • None
  • Close Air Support I
  • Fuel Refining I
Doctrines
  • None

The Raj starts with only 2 research slots. It can get a third quite quickly, but can't unlock any more until becoming independent. However, with Together for Victory Together for Victory it does get access to technology sharing from being in the Commonwealth. Becoming a dominion will increase the maximum cost reduction to -50% from -25%.

Politics

The British Raj in 1936 is beset with communal divisions between the Hindus and the Muslims, and the Burmese in the extreme east outright rejects any affinity with the Raj, insisting that they are a separate nation that was unreasonably incorporated into the Raj by the British only because of geographical proximity. In the game, this is represented by the states of Peshawar, Punjab, Quetta, Baluchistan and Sind in the west, and Mandalay and Burma in the east being classified as occupied states, which significantly reduces the amount of manpower, resources, and industrial capacity the player can utilize from these states.

National spirits

With the Together for Victory Together for Victory expansion enabled, the British Raj starts with the following national spirits in both the 1936 and 1939 scenarios. Otherwise, it does not start with any national spirits and the ones it gains are dependent on the choices it make in the generic national focus tree.

Princely States icon
Princely States
  • Daily autonomy progress gain: -0.1
Marginalized Muslim Community icon
Marginalized Muslim Community
  • Recruitable Population Factor: -20%
  • Stability: -10.00%
Agrarian Society icon
Agrarian Society
  • Recruitable Population Factor: -69%
The local administrators believe that their agrarian lifestyle has made a large part of the Indian population simply unfit for military service or warfare of any kind. They maintain that we should only recruit from the so-called "martial tribes". This belief is so wide-spread and well-entreched that it will require at least a generation to overcome. For the foreseeable future, we must accept that they would simply ignore any order to draft farmers.
Risk of Famine icon
Risk of Famine
The Indian system of food production is very fragile. Even a small interruption might cause a collapse.


Princely States and Marginalized Muslim Community are automatically lost on becoming independent peacefully (including the more beneficial versions of these traits unlockable via focuses)[1]. Princely States and Risk of Famine are also removed if India becomes communist or fascist[2]. Agrarian Society can't be removed.

Diplomacy

With the Together for Victory Together For Victory expansion it is now possible to leave the Commonwealth. India can choose to join the Comintern or Axis via the Swaraj branch of its national focus tree. This will lead to a civil war which will be backed by its new allies.

Political parties

In both the 1936 and 1939 scenarios, the non-aligned Indian National Congress is the ruling political party in the British Raj with Lord Linlithgow acting as the Governor-General and Viceroy of India with overwhelming popularity.

Industry
Although the British Raj starts with a total of 14 civilian factories, 1 of them is unavailable at game start due to insufficient compliance. All in all, it has 47 free slots, enough to build up a much larger industrial base.
Resources
The Raj starts with significant reserves of rare earth minerals and enough steel and oil to field a sizeable force. Note that since its tungsten reserves are entirely located in Burma and Mandalay, both of them occupied states, only a fraction of tungsten is available for use at game start.

Military

In 1936, the British Raj starts with a small and under-equipped army, as well as a small air force. It does not possess a navy. Due to its starting national spirits vastly reducing its recruitable population, it only has a total manpower of 353.41K, of which 99.00K is tied up in the army, and 1.60K in the air force, leaving 252.82K available for recruitment.
