    Then you should be able to release Liberia manually via diplomacy. Alternatively I suggest playing a game as Liberia to figure out the ins and outs of its gaining independence.

    If you're playing Vanilla, then it won't happen until Liberia becomes civilized.

    That's usually it- Liberia or the USA having a revolution. Otherwise Liberia doesn't gain its independence until the event fires giving it that.

    Did Liberia have a revolution?

    Threadmarks: Interlude: Vanity of vanities, all is vanity

    Interlude: Vanity of vanities, all is vanity Achlys spat blood, then bared red teeth in a laugh. Typhon kicked him, but the disgraced Drakensis only laughed harder. “Look at you!” He chortled. “You actually think you’ve won!” His former creche-mate replied by bringing down the butt of his...

    No worries. :cool: Hmm, I may need to rethink a couple of things about this extinction then. I seem to have been misinformed about a couple of different facts. Yeah, I neglected to mention it. Drakia has a handful of space bombers and a larger number of space fighters. I'll try and put...

    I think it's great.

    The fighters they have are short-range- incapable of traveling between the Earth and the Moon on their own. It would be possible to jerry rig something together with the other craft they have to get the fighters back to Earth, but that would leave Alliance Luna completely undefended from space...

    Seeing as I'm only vaguely aware of what Gears of War is, I'm curious what reference you spotted. A surprising number either supported Klein or stepped aside when he made his play, accepting the argument that America needed to focus on restoring order and keeping as much of its population...

    Uh, the USA has extensive contingency plans in place for what to do if most of the people on top are abruptly wiped and out those would go into action pretty quickly. The United States Southern Command is still mostly intact, including the US Army South, the US Naval Forces Southern Command...

    Oh, this is very good. With the global community this badly gutted, a lot of the territorial weirdness works better than in some of the previous maps. The only thing that doesn't make sense to me is Bolivia taking Acre- Brazil probably still has the strength to insist on its territorial...

    Okay, I'll bite. Why on Earth would the USA make any sort of concession, token or otherwise to Uruguay? Why would Uruguay- which lacks the ability to meaningfully settle or defend any new tropical territory- even ask for such concessions? Russia may want something, but it's not going to get...

    Yes and no. The UK (maybe the UK together with some other parts of the Commonwealth) will lay claim to the territory of Commonwealth countries in the area. Certainly French, British, and Dutch territory in the tropics will remain French, British, or Dutch- I completely agree with you that...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 40

    Chapter 40 The dictator of Burma was a populist figure. He lavished attention on his home district where he was genuinely well liked, and generally represented the interests of the ethnic Bamar majority in his country. Parts of the country that voted for him received the lion’s share of...

    Alright. The next chapter is coming slowly- I've been distracted by the election and some RL stuff, and both it and the immediate post-war map are fighting me- but I'm about a 1,000 words in.

    Keep reading and find out. ;) Not my religion, but I thought conquest was supposed to be the first horseman? As other's noted, it's a still from Alita: Battle Angel. Stone drop. Drakia's Lunar colonies were a prestige project, they didn't consider the moon to be of military importance...

    I want say, I'm really impressed by your ability to find relevant (or capable of being passed off as relevant) pictures. I like to use pictures in my own TL, and finding good ones can be an exercise in frustration.

    Threadmarks: Chapter 39

    Chapter 39 Securing important military and government sites is a challenge for the counterintelligence forces of any state. It is, however, an achievable challenge and a necessary task. This is particularly the case for the members of a global democratic block locked in a cold war with...

    Essentially. They don't really like being part of Scandinavia, but they know what the risks of not being part of Scandinavia might entail. Socialism's stance on social policy includes an explicit rejection of that sort of thing. ;) I that's a very insightful assessment, and I largely...
