The Second American Civil War

The tensions in the United States have come to a boiling point. Unhappy with the policies of President [USA.GetLeader], the legislatures of several US states have voted to secede from the Union.

Any hopes for a peaceful resolution of the conflict have been dashed, and hostilities have broken out all along the front. It appears that the majority of the government has decided to stay with the legitimate government, but reports show a surge of volunteers all across the seceding states.

With neither side willing to back down, observers expect a long and bitter struggle.

US Congress Passes Neutrality Act

With tensions rising around the globe, the US Congress has been the scene of intense discussions about the role [USA.GetNameDef] should play on the world stage. Many members are concerned that President [USA.GetLeader] might secretly be planning to intervene in a European or Asian war. Some still remember the role the country played in the Great War and are anxious to keep [USA.GetNameDef] out of foreign entanglements.

Eager to shore up support for his proposed programs of economic reform, President [USA.GetLeader] has signed the Neutrality Act into law, which places heavy restrictions on trade with nations at war and specifically prohibits the President from offering any kind of support to other nations.

[USA.GetNameDefCap] pursues interventionist policies

The peace movement in [USA.GetNameDef] has suffered a severe setback as Congress passed a joint resolution encouraging President [USA.GetLeader] to use military force, if necessary, to safeguard [USA.GetAdjective] interests around the world.

It appears that many in Congress have decided that it was [USA.GetAdjective] indecisiveness that allowed the Great War to drag on for so long and consume so many lives. They point out that within a few months of US troops entering Europe, the Great War had come to an end. An earlier intervention, they argue, could have saved hundreds of thousands of lives.

[USA.GetNameDefCap] passes War Powers Act

Following a vote by standing proclamation in the Senate chamber, President [USA.GetLeader] immediately signed the War Powers Act into law. The Act gives the office of the President far greater discretion in the use of the military than previously possible. The President may now deploy troops to defend [USA.GetAdjective] interests whenever and wherever he deems it necessary, for an unlimited duration.

While President [USA.GetLeader] claimed that these new powers would only be used under the most dire of circumstances, sources inside the State department claim that it is merely the first step in a large-scale program of reshaping the global balance of power.

The Workers Prevail in the Second American Civil War!

After months of bloodshed and untold thousands of casualties, the Second American Civil War has come to an end. The attempt by the southern states to seceede has failed. Many observers point to the parallels to the first American Civil War. Once again, the industrial might of the northern states has proven superior over southern determination.

The government of [USA.GetLeader] now faces the difficult task of reintegrating the breakaway states back into [USA.GetNameDef]. With two uprisings only some 80 years apart, many in the government are pushing for much harsher punishments on the rebels than after the first war.

[USA.GetNameDefCap] Reign Supreme!

After months of bloodshed and untold thousands of casualties, the Second American Civil War has come to an end. President [USA.GetLeader] has declared major combat operations to be over. While some remnants of the rebel government still keep up an ineffective resistance campaign, most have either been rounded up in government sweeps or melted back into the civilian population.

According to President [USA.GetLeader], the war was clearly the work of foreign influences seeking to destabilize and divide the country. In time, he promises, those responsible would pay back their debt to the recovering American nation in blood.

Rise of [Root.GetNameDef]

In the face of global threats, the British government has made a joint statement with the governments of [CAN.GetNameDef], [SAF.GetNameDef], [AST.GetNameDef], and [NZL.GetNameDef] that the British Commonwealth of Nations will be formalized with a new federal government structure.\n\nWith the earlier [RAJ.GetAdjective] government's rejection of this proposal, and with the current implementation of the federal structure for the Commonwealth, [RAJ.GetNameDef] has elected to not remain affiliated with the new Superstate.<br\><br\>Despite this, the move will undoubtedly have unprecedented consequences for the global scene.

It is clear that a unification of the British Empire on this scale will undoubtedly have unprecedented consequences for the global scene.

The [?global.year|0] Imperial Conference

The [From.GetAdjective] government has announced the twelfth Imperial Conference. For the next two months, representatives from the [From.GetAdjective] government and the Dominions will gather in London to discuss matters that concern the entire Empire.

What this will mean for global affairs is as yet unclear, but it is possible discussions will include the topic of Imperial Federation, the formation of which would likely have significant repercussions for the superpowers of the world.

[From.GetName] Revisits Colonial Policy


At a speech today, [From.GetLeader] announced a change in the nation's colonial policy. "Recognizing the rights of all peoples for self-determination, the [From.GetAdjective] government has resolved to set all Imperial subjects on the path to independence, the conclusion of which is intended to occur within the foreseeable future."

In response to concerns that this would greatly weaken [From.GetNameDef]'s position in the world, [From.GetLeader] stated that "all nations that desire to do so will be welcome to remain as a member of a newly-founded community of nations, but then as fully equal and independent parties". It remains to be seen whether any nations will accept the offer.

Decolonization of the British Empire

At midnight today the long-awaited transfer of full sovereignty for the various subject nations of the British Empire was accomplished. Despite the [From.GetAdjective] government's invitation for former subjects to join the [From.GetFactionName], many have chosen to go their own way.

The move continues to be controversial domestically, but is greatly applauded by socialists internationally. What weakness this has caused for [From.GetNameDef]'s position in the world remains to be seen, as does the situation of those nations who elected to go their own way.

[From.GetName] Disavows Appeasement

In a public statement today, the new [From.GetAdjective] Prime Minister [From.GetLeader] has announced the new government's intention to steer away from the course of Appeasement their predecessors had loyally maintained. In no uncertain terms, [From.GetLeader] made it clear that [From.GetNameDef]'s aim is to "put a halt to the march of tyranny, wherever it may rear its ugly head".

Whether the threat of war will serve to halt the expansionism of certain nations remains to be seen, but already recruitment programs are well on their way in [From.GetNameDef], lending credence to their statements.

[From.GetName] Enforces Naval Treaties

The [From.GetAdjective] government has today announced its intention to crack down on violations of the Washington Naval Treaty from 1922. Any signatory nation that has violated the 5:5:3:1.75:1.75 capital ship ratio indicated therein will likely receive immediate [From.GetAdjective] ultimatums demanding they reduce their numbers to the quotas allotted to them in the treaty.

So far, global response has been one of incredulity that the British would go to war over this.

The [From.GetAdjective] government has today announced its intention to "restore the balance of power in Europe", if need be with the use of military force. Continental European imperialism "is a threat to British national security, and therefore must be contained", says Prime Minister [From.GetLeader].

What, exactly, this means is as yet unclear, but the nation has mobilized and seems prepared for war.

[From.GetLeader] Empowers King's Party

Following the royal marriage between King [From.GetLeader] and Wallis Simpson, the King has now appointed the leaders of the newly-formed pro-monarchist "King's Party", Winston Churchill, Oswald Mosley, and David Lloyd George, to form a new government after the nation's extended period without one.

Supporters of [From.GetLeader] applaud the formation of a loyal government, but critics point out that the new government is so supportive of the King's wishes that we might as well consider the King to be, de facto, an absolutist monarch.

[ITA.GetAdjective] Diplomatic Isolation

Diplomatic relations between [ITA.GetNameDef] and [GER.GetNameDef] have taken a turn for the worse recently, with a string of minor diplomatic incidents being seized upon by the [GER.GetAdjective] government to fuel hostile rhetoric. Though Italo-German relations had begun to improve in recent years, these new developments seem to effectively preclude any future cooperation between the two European powers.

Critics point out the concurrent improvements in Anglo-German relations, as well as the 'convenience' this [ITA.GetAdjective] diplomatic isolation provides to the British, which may indicate back room deals between the two nations.

Blackshirts Organize in United Kingdom


Under the leadership of Oswald Mosley, the British Union of Fascists has began an organized campaign of marches across the country, thus seeking to grow the number of fascist supporters throughout the United Kingdom.

The violent counter-reaction by the anti-fascists elements of the public has already caused a number of street fights, however, and it is uncertain whether stability will be maintained or whether the political unrest will become even worse. The BUF leadership, for their part, have already vowed not to stop "until they have marched on Downing Street and demanded a government change".

Second London Naval Treaty Signed


Delegations from Britain, France, Italy, Japan and US met in December 1935 to discuss a renewal of of the First London Naval Treaty, which restricted the number and size of cruisers and submarines. Negotiations turned quite heated over Italy's war against Ethiopia and Japan's desire to be seen as equal to Britain and the US.

With negotiations now at an end, the signatory nations have agreed on limits to the size of battleships and aircraft carriers in the hopes of preventing another ruinous arms race.
