So sayeth the factory worker, slaving at steel. So sayeth the soldier, with his jackbooted heels. So sayeth the politican, spinning his lies. So sayeth the pilot, darting through skies. Peace in Idiea will last no longer- for here comes Death, lead by warmongers.
See here for the interest check, here for the discord server, and here for the technology sheet.
Idiea is a (mostly) Pangaea-like world, set culturally in the interwar period of the 20th century. It has had an unusually long period of international peace, although local revolutions and breakaway states have occurred in recent years. However, the discovery of crude oil, and the refining techniques needed to turn it into diesel have sparked a revolution of the technological sort. This increase in technology, particularly with its uses for war, has understandably made many nervous, and it seems that far from ushering in a new age of prosperity in this era of peace, nothing but all-out war shall break out. Philosophically, Idiea is a blend between both of the wars. Totalitarian fascist and communists regimes sit side by side with old empire and kingdoms. Milder nationalists, democratic republicans, socialists and theocratic dictatorships all hold sway in this world, causing a unique mixture the likes of which will be totally destroyed by the war. After all, only one side can come out standing.

- - What I say is final. I am the GM. If I say something, that is what happens. I wish to be a harsh, yet benevolent dictator, don't worry.
- - Follow Guild rules. Be Fonzie cool, no harassment or any of that. If you must have drama, keep it to PMs, or bring in mods.
- - Don't Godmod. Nothing sucks more than someone pulling out a superweapon in the middle of a battle and wiping half an army out without letting the other person respond. If they've agreed to that, that's different, but then that ain't godmodding.
- - KEEP THINGS GOING. I've been burned out with rapidly dead games before. I refuse to let that happen here. I will be poking people on Discord to post, and I will try my best to post in a reasonable space of time. Thank you.
NAME OF COUNTRY
|Geographical Location of Country:| Where your country is located in Idiea. Simple as.
|Country Size:| Roughly, how big is your country? Square kilometres or miles is fine, just make sure there’s a clear distinction. For reference, each square pixel of the map is around 256 kilometres, or 16x16 kilometres.
|Cities:| Self-explanatory, I hope. Important cities, basically.
|Natural Resources:| Is your country blessed with a surplus of various supplies, and where are main deposits of this supply located? Obvious resources would be crude, iron, coal, lumber, but anything you can come up with that a country might need can be put here. I will determine if this is fair, with the understanding that imbalances will happen.
People & Culture:
|Population:| How many people live in your country? Roughly speaking, of course.
|Demographics:| Feel free to talk to other players regarding demographics or make up ethnic groups within your own country. If you want to be like Austria-Hungary, with approximately eight thousand different ethnic groups within, feel free.
|Government:| What is the way your country is ruled. This can be anything from an absolutist democracy or theocratic dictatorship to a democratic republic. All up to you.
|Ruler:| Current leader of your country, or leadership in the case of a senate/group of people.
|Volksgeist:| The inherent spirit of your nation. What do the people stand for and want? What is the national identity, and how strong is it? This is where you give us several paragraphs about the culture of your people.
|Religion:| How prominent is religion in the country, and which faith(s) do they worship?
Give me something meaty to work with here.
Be prepared to write a lot. I’m leaving this fairly open to what you guys want to do, but I want at LEAST infantry arms, premiere vehicles, navy/airforce details, military uniforms, organisational structure, etc, etc, etc. This is an RP heavily based around combat, after all.
|People of Interest:|
POV characters. A short description as well. Feel free to update this as you want to.
|Industrialisation:| I’d like a percentage. 0-20% is tsarist Russia. 80-100% is a modern country like the UK.
NOTE: I have almost certainly missed some things. It’ll get sorted out, I promise.
