Which nation sim have you played before? Qpawn, Nations and other smaller ones that I cant remember.

How did you find Nations? Cant remember

How will your activity be over the next few months? Daily, if it changes ill let you all know.

List of nations you want to apply for::
1. Germany
2. East Germany
3. China
4. Russia
5. Belgium

Application::

1. Its time for a more assertive Germany (please dont get triggered, lol). Germany has to use its position as the leader of the free world to help reform the EU into a more dynamic and less shit partner. Its time to get rid of those Belgian guys who keep on wanting to pretend they have influence and that Belgium is a country that can lead Europe to anywhere but into the depths of waffle-induced depravity. Germany will try to implement an asymmetrical strategy of further integration when it comes to mutual defense, global warming and trimming the budget, yet promote a decentralised political center which will appreciate the diversity in political opinion, i.e. accept crazy right wing demagogues and lefties alike (as long as they are not being undemocratic). Perhaps further political integration is the end goal of the European Union but the speed and intensity needs to be adjusted so that we dont get Spaxit. Regarding Brexit, Brexit will not happen or it will be made as painful as possible to teach those devilishly handsome English not to mess with Uncle Fritz.

It is time for the Germans to be a bit more ballsy, finally tackle the issues of migration with either open borders or not, not this messing around where they endorse one thing but accept the other. Those Turks are pretty annoying, perhaps those Germans will embargo them into next week, that would be pretty popular amongst Conservatives.

Internally I would get rid of the Solidarity tax that was put into place to help the Eastern provinces because they all voted AfD and they would finally get what they want, no money for the poorest. Seriously, people in the West and some in the East have been demanding this for years, the commotion is a bit daft. I would also be a bit more belligerent in order to get those AfD votes back in, if I dont manage that then the CDU will have to have a coalition with the SPD again but the SPD is also vanishing.. I would be tough on crime, anti racist and try to help refugees integrate into German society while searching for qualified workers from aboard.

2. I would break away from Germany, call myself Prussia and watch all the fanboys go mental.

3. I would show Taiwan who is boss, I would show America who is boss, I will buy up random companies everywhere so I have the illusion of being all powerful and when it comes crashing down I will blame America.

4. Idk

5. Split the country in three, Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels

Application::

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

The United Kingdom is stood at the cusp of one of the biggest and possibly most democratic decisions in recent times, where it also stands however is at a precipice where the population has never been more split between two cross-party camps. This has led to internal conflict, external conflict and ongoing confusion within the two big political parties as to which vision of the future they embody. With the Conservative Party riven between the hard Brexiteers behind Michael Gove and Boris Johnson and the softer camp behind May and her Chequers protocol it is daily rumours that a vote of no-confidence shall be forced through parliament by rebels dissatisfied at a lack of Hard Brexit. In the other camp stands a Labour party being driven back to its Socialist routes under Corbyn with the centralist, New Labour MPs alternately ducking their heads and launching failed coup attempts or leaking anti-semitic accusations to the press.

In this cauldron we have a situation where little to 0 in the way of negotiation has taken place in Europe and the Prime Minister continues to play hard ball with Europe declaring that 'either Europe excepts the Chequers proposal or it is a no deal'. A growing poll for a Second Referendum continues also with followers on both sides of the argument and May's alienation of much of her own party leading to that support coming from Conservative grass-roots also. With the ongoing and growing pressure the 1922 Committee informing May that unless she approves a second referendum to choose between a definite Brexit even without a deal or calling off Article 50 she will be removed from power. This referendum is scheduled for December of 2018 and May informs the EU that a finalisation of 'Chequers or Bust' is needed. Likely the EU will call this bluff and the Referendum quickly becomes No-Deal or staying within the EU.

Perhaps unexpectedly it is this referendum that leads to the downfall of the Labour party in it's current form with the pro-EU faction of the party who are opposed to Brexit break ranks with the party whip and openly campaign against a no-deal Brexit. This leads to Corbyn taking a hard stance and threatening their ejection from the party should they not comply with the three line whip. In what is termed by the press to be the 'November Putsch' some 47 Labour MPs announce their resignation from the party in the face of 'an open attack form party leadership on free speech and the right to represent their constituents.' These MPs are all notable moderates within the party with many Blairites among them and they quickly begin to utilise buildings within London that had been quietly purchased by Blair 12 months previous to be the headquarters of his pro-EU lobby.

The referendum comes back with a big change from the polls which expected a close result but the changing tides and voter apathy with Brexit coupled with the first large turn out from youth for many years leads to a 57-43 result against a no-deal Brexit. In the wake of this result the Prime Minister informs the EU that due to the short time remaining for negotiation that Britain would like to rescind their Article 50 activation. Of course this does not sit well with the hardliners in her own party and despite heavy pressure to resign May forces the 1922 committees hand and a vote of no-confidence is pushed through at the close of the year. In the wake of this announcement the Labour rebels announce the formation of a new political group alongside the Liberal Democrats who shall be headed by somebody removed from politics for some years. This 'New Democratic Party' positions itself as the representatives of moderate Britain and stands strong going into the election.

Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

- The MBS show must go on, while he has made many sweeping changes that have in some ways not been too successful and in others seen great strides has left Saudi Arabia mired in a war in Yemen with no swift end in sight and the KSA pulling back on their ARAMCO IPO.
- Moving forward, MBS will look to build together a collection of smaller over-lapping changes backed by Muhammed al-Issa, the secretary general of the Islamic World League, he will start by continuing the societal liberation, improving women's rights further in small steps but not brooking discontent or open criticism.
- The Yemeni conflict shall be looked towards being resolved more quickly, to this end the Saudi National Guard will begin to be deployed in an anti-insurgency operations (their specialty) in the first foreign deployment of any elements of this force. This will free up the army and other GCC forces to push forwards and continue to limit the position of the Iranian funded and supplied groups.
- Economically, Saudi Arabia shall look to abandon its love of White Elephant projects such as the mooted NEOM and instead shall look to funding private growth through a rejigged and replanned subsidy scheme which will support none petrochemical businesses. It shall also look to the transitioning of some of the non-petrochemical government companies to private ownership as an example that the KSA can comply with international economic regulations.
- In the GCC, MBS will talk with MBZ and look to bring together an agreement on a true currency union, making concessions on HQ location and regulation to the UAE position and offering checks to Saudi influence over such a body. This will hopefully allow for a currency to be rolled out that is anchored to the economy of much of the GCC and 25% or the worlds oil.
- Militarily reform is needed and discussion will be entertained with the GCC for the expansion of the GCC armed forces and professionalization of the armed forces and slow removal of the noble cash for ranks system and beginning to promote actually competent officers.

Republic of Turkey
- While Erdogan has always been a man with a mission to gather power to himself he has also shown himself to be a pragmatist and it is this pragmatism he will apply to begin to work to arrest the recent economic slump.
- To this end he will announce 'Ground-breaking' and 'Unprecedented' reforms to grant back some of the freedoms he arranged to be taken from various insititutions, most notably the Central Bank and some sectors of the media.
- This shall lead to the allowance for the Central Bank to raise interest rates and ease the pressure built up by enforced low interest rates that did not properly reflect the reality of the real Turkish interest rates.
- For a short term influx of investment high interest short term bonds shall be offered to offset the rampant Lira devaluation.
- Erdogan will announce the creation of a new financial institution a currency board which will back the Lira with a gold reserve which shall increase overtime to act against the junk status of the currency.
- A 'deal' will be sought with Trump if a true agreement can be reached on Trumps actual issues of Turkish acting against some US backed groups in Syria and actions against various actors in the region. The Pastor would likely be released as a publicity stunt to help Trump too.

This one (pre-move, that is)

How did you find Nations?
Googling military equipment, actually

If referred, who is responsible for the referral?
N/A

Low to Medium, 2-3 times a week

List of nations you want to apply for::
1. Ukraine
2. Kurdish Regional Government
3. Italy

Application::
Ukraine
The government of Ukraine will continue to focus on maintaining territorial integrity while attempting to revive the country's sluggish economy. Investing in advanced equipment for the Armed Forces and National Guard will be a top priority, as will be countering endemic corruption throughout the country.

Kurdish Regional Government
With the independence referendum having faltered in the place of immense pressure from the Iraqi government and the KRG's coalition partners, the KRG will relegate itself to building long-term autonomy within Iraq, while attempting to further endear the KRG in Western nations by presenting the KRG in particular, and Kurdish forces as a whole, as being far more reliable than the unstable government in Baghdad. Investment's will be made towards diversifying the KRG's economy, as well as in re-equipping and training the Peshmerga to better respond to developing threats in the Middle East.

Italy
Following the election of the League/Five Star coalition government, Italy will focus on pushing the EU towards a less unified stance, while reducing the pressure of the refugee crisis on Italy.
