Well, actually, I attacked Ermac without provocation. I did it because muskets.

But for the weapons on Victoria, well, they did nuke two of my cities; two of the most populous in the world. They occupy my lands and hold thousands of my people.


I also would like to make a public offer to Slappy; If you send me Anti-Gravity Generators, I’ll exterminate your ants.

Wait… I’m just kind of curious as of how you plan on exterminating the ants if this deal is to go through… I mean i’m not even sure if conventional pesticides would be that effective at this point, let alone other methods

Well, I do have a very good pesticide. Sarin Gas, for starters. I’m pretty sure that I have the only way to mass exterminate these creatures other than RPP without rendering the landscape uninhabitable or putting your military at risk.

Sarin Gas is also effective against Scottish people.

Well, it’s a good idea, but if it doesn’t work, then the ants could become immune to that particular substance (if they aren’t already.) I’m really hoping that the ants don’t get to that point though, or we’re all screwed. Heck, next turn they’re probably going to start speaking our language or eating inorganic substances.

The prospect of dealing with the Scottish is a nice idea though. Maybe in a turn or two to let them try their luck against the ants

I can use anthrax, but that renders the land uninhabitable for a century. Unless of course the ants know how to make vaccines…

I’m not seeing this thing you are talking about. Jets, rifles, rockets, and atomic bombs amounts to four techs. Even if you include bunkers (not a tech) and killdozers (which do nothing) that’s still only six.

Okay you know what, I’m going to try and turn off GAIA this turn because in hindsight, the moment anyone attacks me, or I slip up, I’m going to have a robot uprising on my hands.
Anyone who plans on attacking me or whatever, please wait until after I turn GAIA off.
And for those who would like some information about my current situation:
1) GAIA was simply made to run my country efficiently and turn Medicea into a paradise, that is its goal.
2) I did not in anyway request the building of biomechs, GAIA acted because as (1) states, it is attempting to make Medicea a paradise, and not having to work is one quality of paradise.
3) Once this is dealt with, I will resume medical trade, I simply didn’t want outer influence while I drastically changed my civilization.
4) The so called brain hack tech GAIA has is limited to directly contacted humans, and will cease to exist the moment GAIA is put offline.
5) My citizens are in an uproar, and many will likely be moving to your countries, I have no problem with this, but I do have a problem with the fact that I have already heard of plots to attack them.
6) Ireland does in fact have all my current tech, anyone who acquires it peacefully will have all my technology, and that is totally fine, go for it.

I would like to point out that anyone who wants to attack RPP prematurely better like their steaks irradiated because I have vested interests in this operation, an arsenal full of WMDs, and a head full of empty.

EDIT:
Slappy has agreed to give me a few techs, and now I think it’s time I opened my business to the public!
I can offer you a colony on Planet Australia itself! That’s right. Fuck this gay Earth. No more ants, communists or revolutions!
I will of course have some conditions. For example, I’ll be needing you to deposit your WMDs elsewhere before you depart for your new, dangerous home. Can’t have Earth Mark II here. Secondly, we’ll need some logistical support. Put in your turn that you’re sending me metals and helping me produce components for starships, and you get your colony free*

As a gesture of good faith, I’m abandoning my evil plans to destroy Fasier after I promised not to twice. He’ll still nuke me, but I will build gigantic space muskets for him as a gift.

I think RPP is being needlessly paranoid and overly-defensive. Why would anyone attack the one player with both the plague cures and the ant extermination methods?

I need him, we need him. Anyone that blows up Medicia and ruins my chance at getting some medical supplies will be visiting my wrath as well.

Dude practically has diplomatic immunity at this point

Now if I can just convince him to stop snobbing me and trade…

You know RPP, you would have even less to worry about regarding attacks if you assist the largest nation in the game and earn its trust and allegiance as a result. This “watch the world burn” attitude does you less of a favor

Here are the five largest nations, by square pixels:
Sysseror 344,076
Angmar 168,444
Seccia 145,870
Vascony 95,803

Turn 18
Political Map
-The future is now! All technologies developed beyond this point will be purely hypothetical IRL. We are now assuming that every player nation presently has pre-1990 technology unless said tech is listed. Redundant technologies are removed.
-The ant swarms continue to devastate the regions they are in, with some areas being depopulated entirely of all life, human and otherwise. Primitive language has developed among the largest of the ants, which have shown that they can grow to about half of the height of an adult human before their internal organs collapse from structural inadequacies at that size.
-Planet Australia is on the big map now, along with territorial claims. I put it on the map as a way of convenience; Australia is NOT part of the Earth map. I may make a separate file for the Oz map later, but for now it is all in one image.

-Fasier sends technology making internet connections to Victoria possible.
-Strategic defense initiatives are made, including the launching of geostatic satellites for tracking missile launches, as well as an anti-rocket defensive system for shooting down ICBMs.
-A weapons platform is put into orbit and artillery emplacements are installed. Shuttles are created to more easily supply the station with munitions and other supplies.
-Seccian orbital bombardment shatters the nation’s infrastructure and decimates its military command structure with pinpointed strikes at key individuals and locations essential to the function of the state and military. Victoria is calling for a ceasefire with all nations, and threatens to use nuclear force against any further incursions against its claims.

-The assault rifle and nuclear submarine schematics are sent from Victoria.
-Tanks are developed, and the killdozer plans are scrapped in favor of something less ambiguous that actually exists.
-Stealth technologies are developed for aircraft.
-Watokka City is evacuated and as many people are removed from the area as possible before a bomb is dropped on the city. The atomic blast eradicates the ant hive there, stalling the swarm’s progress in Watokka.
-Deisea is reclaimed with Victorian help, and an invasion is launched into New Navarra. This disrupts supply lines to Aggara, and rebel forces successfully oust Vascon troops from the region.
-An internet network is established between Deisea and Victoria.
-The Iberian peninsula is mostly lost to the ant invasion. The Tangiers ferry and the Iberian coast guard are working around the clock to help the droves of refugees flee to

-Volunteers who have survived the Finnish Flu are gathered and their antibodies collected. This, combined with the ongoing study into the disease and how to fight it, has finally resulted in a cure for those already infected.
-More funding for hospitals as well as medical funding results in more college graduates and a greater national reputation for intellect.
-Jetplanes are developed. Further advances are made into rocket science as well.
-Pacific oil exploration has turned up with zero suitable locations for drilling close to controlled coastlines.
-State media sources are calling the Persian insurgents terrorists. Military forces are sent in to police the region, although the countryside remains largely in rebel control. Angmar’s decision to give their Persians local autonomy has further enthused the Syserrene Persians into joining nationalist rebel groups.
-Strategic missile defense systems are developed, allowing Syserror to shoot down incoming ICBMs.
-The Imperial Faction of China is requesting that their authority be reinstated over China as a whole.

-Atomic weapons are received from an undisclosed source.
-All involvement in Britain is ended. The military pulls out of England, and refugees flee in droves. Almost immediately, the Scottish government begins requesting assistance in fighting back the advancing ant horde. Most of England has been overrun and depopulated.
-An outpost is established on Planet Oz. It remains functional and unassailed by local wildlife. The cosmonaut settlers have been supplies with weapons and ample munitions to defend themselves.
-The ion engine is invented, manipulating the Earth’s ionosphere to charge massive blasts of energy for launches destined for earth’s orbit and beyond.
-Ion technology is further pursued to create the ion cannon, which directs its ion stream towards the surface for small yet devastating directed energy attacks.
-Mechs are developed, and production of weaponized mecha platforms begins. Tripod walkers are making their way into the military.
-The ant swarms of Javertus, having been largely ignored, have now overrun the region and grown out of control. Civilian evacuations are already underway.
-Air strikes and orbital drops are made all across Victoria. The new ion cannon is used extensively to barrage the capital as well as other populated regions surrounding it, devastating the nation’s military infrastructure. Victoria has responded by requesting a ceasefire, threatening to use more nuclear weapons if the war is not ended immediately.
-An invasion of Aldmeris is successfully made. Very little organized resistance is met, and the Aldmerin military is nearly completely destroyed in a single battle.
-The navy is reorganized and deployed primarily around the Ashenlands to defend the new capital from seaborne assaults.

-Cold fusion is successfully harnessed as a viable power source, revolutionizing electric power production, which is now cheaper than ever.
-3D printing is developed, enabling stores to carry hypothetical infinite inventories in a very space. The creation of an internet network also enables users to order products instantaneously to their own homes.
-Sattelites are put into orbit.
-Local autonomy is granted to Persia, although the nation remains a subsidiary of Angmar. Rebellious organizations in Iraq quickly diminish after their suppliers in Persia are quelled.
-The nations top myrmecologists are gathered to put together a plan for dealing with a potential ant invasion.
-Thanks to leniency regarding the Persian rebels, many other regions see organizations demanding autonomy appear, especially India.
-Invasion forces move to occupy Denmark and Sweden, and a massive air strike destroys Forseti’s European missile silos and burns Copenhagen to the ground.
-Another attack is made against Seccia, into India, Indonesia and Africa. Forces moving into the Congo are being primarily damaged via attrition; more men are lost to disease, rough terrain, and starvation than actual combat.

-Artificial gravity generators are sent from Seccia. These are immediately put to use in antigravity engines which, when applied in ample numbers to an ocean going craft, are used to create airships of significant weight. Antigravity engines have the strongest upward push when at sea level, and become weaker further from the planet’s surface.
-The new airships are used as launch sites for space rockets. Some are even reinforced for actual space flight, and given thrusters to escape the “doldrums zone” where antigrav engines are too weak to push further, and the earth’s gravity is too strong to escape.
-The new space based warships are equipped with hydroponic farming to enable them to support their own ecosystems for long trips.
-A warship is landed on Oz, and helps to construct a series of coastal colonial bases. The Australian oceans make landing the refit naval ships easy, enabling huge supply drops to be made very quickly.
-Italy has declared independence.
-The war with France silently draws to a close as Vascon troops are removed from the country and French soldiers are moved entirely to combat the ant swarms.

-GAIA develops brain hacking capabilities over a distance aided by a microscopic cybernetic bug which burrows into the host’s head to make the connection remotely. Through this combination of technologies, GAIA begins connecting directly to it’s biomechs, and also hijacks the minds of all of MMI’s largest stock holders.
-GAIA utilizes the now captive MMI board of directors to enact legislation that puts GAIA as the single supreme leader of the Medicean nation. The people of Medicea resent this change in government, as well as the continued gross manipulation of genetic technology under the Medicean reign. The state implodes, and three major regional powers emerge independent: Mortello, Manchester, and GAIA itself.
-Following the collapse of the state, GAIA has asserted its authority over the remaining loyalists by connecting them directly to the GAIA mainframe. Thousands flee to Danish Aggarra or Mortello to escape enslavement.
-Highly efficient photosynthetic bacteria is engineered with the purpose of being injected into the epidermis of human subjects to allow them to thrive on sunlight, producing their own carbohydrates. Usage of these microscopic parasites is made mandatory for all subjects of GAIA, who now all exhibit a very green hue in their skin tone.

-Nuclear submarines are developed.
-Lasers are weaponized and made standard issue.
-A weapons platform is put into orbit.
-Robots are developed to explore Oz remotely. Valuable information regarding local wildlife is gathered, and significant evidence shows that biological contaminants from Earth are eradicating Australian fauna at an alarming rate.
-Napalm is used continuously in Pretoria to fight back the ant swarm. Local industries have almost turned the whole of their domestic produce towards the endeavor. The sun is slowly blotted out as the ash clouds do not subside faster than they are replaced. Pretorian flora rapidly perishes from the combination of loss of sunlight and unchecked forest fires from the bombing. The ants, lacking a food import system, are quickly starved out. Few major colonies remain.
-Oz is mapped using geostatic satellites. Combined with the land rover information, various locations of opportune colonization have been identified.
-Infected peoples are cremated after dying of Finnish Influenza. Tighter quarantines on infected and dead individuals are enacted.
-A force is sent to reinstate Forseti control over Japan. However, the invasion fails to make ground following significant Japanese resistance. Japanese nationalism is extremely high since the ascendance of the Emperor to power, and their citizen militia is willing to accept massive casualties to prevent any foreigners from landing on their soil.

I’d rather we didn’t attack the one player (slappy) that’s actually doing something against Victoria.

On the other hand, you can all go ahead and attack RPP. I don’t need him anymore. He’s probably just going to start the Cyborg Mutant Zombie uprising anyway. And then the Cyborg Mutant Zombies will assimilate the Ants and we will have Giant Mutant Robot Zombie Killer Ant Terminators on the loose

Aggarra and Iberia/France were forced withdraws. The former due to Fasien attacks, the latter due to ants. Such an order to withdraw was not in the latest PM from you. Remember: I only read the very last PM you send me for writing the turn.

However, if there is one thing I learned from years of robot revolution sci-fi flicks; it’s this:

Never, ever trust tyrannical sentient robot overminds

So if RPP want an alliance, he will need to do something to earn my trust. Until then I’m watching you, RPP

You shouldn’t. I am on spring break. But then, I am also lazy. Anyway, it is always safe to have your turn in as soon as possible, and then edit it once changes need to be made. I really don’t mind when people send me edits; I don’t know what everybody keeps apologizing for when they send one. O Canada?

Turn 19
Political Map
-Following this turn, there are no more secrets. We can safely assume that your spy networks are each individually capable of obtaining at least rough knowledge about major projects being worked on in other countries.
-Victoria has collapsed, and ceased to be a major power. The combined stresses of managing a multicultural rebellious continent, having been bombarded from orbit by ion cannons and with nuclear weapons against the capital, and corruption in the central bureaucracy have led to a coup overthrowing the communist regime and installing a true democratic republic. The political struggle in Victoria proper has led to a power vacuum abroad, allowing rebel insurgents rise and declare independence.
-Flora and fauna of Oz are perishing at a remarkable rate. Most of the forests on the planet have withered due to infections from mold, termites, parasitic plants, and other such things accidentally brought from Earth.
-France and Germany strengthen their resolve to exterminate the European ant swarm with an alliance, including Switzerland and the Netherlands as well. Following the Pretorian example, they have begun mass production of napalm and are bombing the advancing horde incessantly.

-An official evacuation policy is put into effect, moving a large portion of Iberia’s residents to a camp which eventually comes to be known as New Fasier. The nation’s government is now situated in this new and rapidly growing urban metropolis.
-Tangiers rapidly swells to become the most populated city on the planet, as it is the first and easiest to reach evacuation point from Iberia. Many millions elect to stay in the city, turning it into a mosaic of all kinds of Iberian peoples.
-Soon after the number of refugees in Tangiers reached its peak, an atomic weapon was dropped and detonated in the city. The bomb killed millions in the densely crowded temporary slums, and millions more fled south into Morocco to escape further attacks. The Moroccan government, faced with feeding and sheltering a horde of millions of homeless Spaniards, saw no alternative than to respond with force.
-After hundreds of thousands were massacred in the initial days of the movement south, the Moroccan army was overwhelmed. Munitions ran out, as there were too many families to shoot and too few bullets to shoot them with. The entire region has devolved into a brawl, with warlord nomadic Spaniards pouring over the borders into Basque Algiers, or across the oasis paths of the Sahara into West Africa.
-The now empty lands of Iberia, save for a few stalwart farmers who claim to “fear no thing, nuke or bug” are ceded to Vascony.
-Atomic bombs are dropped as quickly as they are produced on the Watokkan Peninsula, with heavy emphasis placed on increasing their destructive capacity with each bombing. Newer, better nukes are developed as a result of the effort.
-A colony is successfully established on Oz, with a string of small towns popping up around a stagnant lake in the midst of a dense, rotting, dead jungle.
-Aggarra is reoccupied and fortified in the case of a swarm invasion.
-Collaboration with Victorian scientists has resulted in the production of a rather efficient method of attacking the ants called the Pheromone Bomb. The weapon utilizes a synthetic pheromone, nearly identical to the one that the ants use to identify locations, to send the workers on an endless spiral around one point until they die of exhaustion. The larger, smarter ants are immune to this weapon, although it can still be used to attract them to a central location for attack by conventional weapons.
-New Navarra is fully occupied. A line of demarcation is drawn to split the region between Fasier and Victoria. However, with the communist regime’s collapse, they only manage to assert authority over a small sector of the area.
-The French and German science teams and engineers in charge of eradicating Europe’s swarm has requested that pheromone bombs be produced to aid in the destruction of the ants in Europe. Using conventional methods, they are only barely capable of containing the present invasion.

-Lasers and robotics are invested into.
-Syserror establishes its own internet network.
-Vertical takeoff is mastered in jet plane engineering.
-The gauss gun, an electric powered cannon, is invented.
-A strike team establishes an outpost on an abandoned anti air installation off the coast of Britain. The owner, self proclaimed Prince Roy the Third of Sealand, opened fire on the team’s boat. The so-called-prince, sole inhabitant of the micronation, has been detained in a closet labelled “Sealand National Prison.” Science teams proceed to turn the small platform into the world’s largest ant autopsy operations facility in order to obtain ant pheromones.
-Persia is abandoned to its own devices.
-The “War on Terror” is begun with an air strike into Iraq on former rebel camps. Overall, the campaign has the stated goal of “eradicating WMDs, totalitarian dictators, and terrorist crime lords.”
-Tanks roll into Turkey and push into Syria and Iraq. Missile strikes are launched across Anatolia to destroy Angman military installations.
-Iraqi militants begin burning the oil fields when Syserrene soldiers start carrying off the oil back to Russia.
-Tacit support is given for the independence of various peoples in central and southern Asia under Angman oppression.
-Yomi is convinced to open trade. Japan is also given opportunities in Syserror’s market, and a pan-pacific trading sphere is turned into an official alliance.
-Taxes are raised to give free healthcare and education to all people in the nation. This action is not fought against much, considering the fact that most health care has been government controlled since the outbreak of the Finnish Influenza.
-The Chinese imperial family sever ties to Syserror after the denial of their sovereignty over the whole of China.

-Limited understanding of the ant language is established.
-Aldmeris is annexed.
-More settlers are moved to the Planet Oz colony.
-Oz’s unique flora and fauna is captured and isolated in great numbers, preserved for future research.
-Strategic defense satellites are paired up with Ion Cannons in a plan to shoot down launched ICBMs globally, wherever they threaten Seccian territory.
-Space Warship designs are made and several small cruisers are launched in orbit to defend the ion cannons.
-Ion technology is utilized in the creation of energy shields and small arms.
-Ion strikes are utilized against Angmar’s capital, Constantinople.
-Angman troops begin utilizing “defoliants” such as napalm and nuclear weapons in the Congo. The use of a terrifying new weapon, the neutron bomb, decimates Seccian troop numbers. This bomb was placed by ground troops, and thus could not be intercepted or detected by satellites.
-Continued proliferation of global common technology has brought the internet to Seccia.
-A group of people in the west Congo region have spontaneously declared allegiance to GAIA, while their skin simultaneously turns into a dark shade of green.

-The Neutron Bomb, a nuclear weapon specifically designed to release a vast majority of its energy as neutron radiation, is developed. The express purpose of this weapon is to murder individuals caught outside the explosion’s blast radius, rather than maximizing the blast radius itself.
-Several regions are given partial autonomy, and the nation becomes more of a confederacy.
-Power armor, a robotic exoskeleton providing defense and significant personal strength, is developed.
-Methods of matter conversion are developed and put to use in experimental 3D printer usage to reconstruct items at the molecular scale. This new creation is put to use in a social experiment in Hungary, where a group of two thousand people are allowed access to “anything and everything” through use of the machine. With such little work required to gain access to any good they desire, the town’s people become lethargic. Some militarists are suggesting that in such a society, a 100% draft might be possible, giving Angmar nearly infinite manpower and munitions.
-Missiles designed to shoot down bigger missiles are created, and successfully intercept a handful of rockets launched from a nuclear submarine in the Mediterranean.
-The capital in Constantinople is shelled into dust via orbital bombardment. A new government must be assembled in a new building soon, as the member states are beginning to consider secession with the weakened central federal state in its present condition.
-Missile strikes are made against the ant horde in France. This does very to help halt the ants’ progress.
Forseti gains control of the Baltic in a decisive naval battle, crushing the local Angman fleet and blocking the sea from all ocean based logistics. Military unites in Sweden are starved during a long siege and finally captured after a bloody winter assault.
-Paratroopers land in the Norwegian mountains, and communication with them is quickly lost.
-Defoliants are utilized extensively in the Congo. The neutron bomb is field tested against Seccian troops with positive results. Progress there is still slow due to the extensive jungles.

-Naval forces assault the Victorian armada, and are once again victorious. Missile ships manage to sink two super-carriers, causing the Victorians to rethink their maritime war plans.
-Landing parties beach on Deisea, and once again establish a foothold on the island. However, the nation’s growing inability to feed its own troops has resulted in an alarming desertion rate.
-Atomic bomb tipped IRBMs are launched against enemy major cities in North America, and several bombs are dropped across Iberia. Victoria’s capital is flattened, and thousands of fleeing Spaniards are killed in Europe. In retaliation, Victoria releases a wave of nuclear weapons of their own across the new world colonies, as well as a single ICBM upon Barcelona.
-Michigan, a loyalist stronghold throughout the entirety of the war, has been invaded by New Aragon. The people there are requesting assistance.
-The Watokkan front has collapsed entirely due to lack of supplies. Few soldiers were successfully removed from the region; entire army groups have been classified as MIA.
-Massive laser arrays are constructed to shoot down incoming ICBMs. An array is built near each major city in Brasil.
-Control over Akavir and Lusistania is lost due to nuclear attacks destroying most of the infrastructure and population. What remnants remain in the countryside have banded together into their own independent coalitions.
-Nerve gas is utilized extensively against the growing ant swarm in Europe. The Iberian horde is quickly advancing however, and the collapsing wartime economy coupled with the destruction of Barcelona has crippled Vascony’s ability to fight.
-Limited communication methods have been developed with the ants. It appears that the most commonly used words in their vocabulary are “food” and “hungry.” French and German linguists have suggested a partnership to decipher the language together.
-Wildfires break out as the unbridled expansion of the Oz colonies has lead to extensive unchecked industrial activity, much of it producing sparks and flames. The fires spread rapidly through the dried out, dying forests of Oz. The rising smoke clouds have blotted out the sun entirely in some regions, causing an observable drop in global temperature.

-Despite GAIA’s best attempts to prevent them from learning of it, the Sapmi people have discovered news of the collapse of Medicea, and have surrendered their allegiance to Finland.
-GAIA continues to increase in size as more artificial brain matter is added, and new ways are found to make the mind smaller without losing functionality.
-Refugees fleeing into Mortello are found to be infected with Gaian “head bugs” and continue to breed the things to spread the hive mind. Mortellan military police have begun to execute anybody with so much as a scar on the back of their head, and it has become mandatory across Mortello and Manchester for all people to shave themselves bald for easy identification.
-Photosynthetic Skin augmentations are paired up with the brain bugs, so that once GAIA communicates with an individual for the first time, the subject is immediately injected with it’s first dose of photosynthetic microbes. Through this, the brain bugs become a stealthy, all-in-one assimilation package.
-Brainhacking is expanded in a way that the infected mind can be given greater control over its body in such a way that “enforced metamorphosis” can change the very shape and function of the host body.
-Many subject Gaians are turned into backup units, which may “evolve” into a new Gaia should the present overmind perish.

-Automated bombers, called drones, are developed for use by the air force.
-A secret project has developed what is coined the “Horn of Hattin,” a microscopic nanobot delivery system capable of turning small regions of fertile land into desert wastelands. Why anybody would want to do such a cruel thing is beyond comprehension.
-Nuclear subs in the Mediterranean are used to launch atomic SRBMs at Angmar’s largest cities in the Balkan peninsula. These rockets are intercepted, however.
-The orbital weapons platforms are used to launched conventional artillery barrages at military installations, inadvertently aiding in the military advances of both the Spanish horde and the Syserrene army. Constantinople in particular is shelled constantly, and not much remains of the once illustrious urban center.
-Angman Star Island is captured.
-Naval patrols in the Baltic successfully pin down Angman armies and keep them from receiving supplies. Scandinavian winters prove to be too harsh for the invaders, and many prisoners are taken in a brutal counterattack that leaves thousands dead.
-Naval invasions of Danzig fail to have any effect, as the Angman forces in Poland are far too great in numbers to challenge.
-Gaians have started to appear in Aggara.
-The ant swarm of Pretoria is successfully exterminated. Alert watch groups are scouting the countryside regularly to burn any new anthills which appear.
