    China takes heavy casualties in Korea, but they have a lot of people and hold their current line. The supply line to Korea was broken by us, so Japanese troops will eventually be out of supplies. Japan launches a surprise attack before our reserves arrive, pushing us back 20 miles and killing 1,500 Americans and 500 French troops. We only kill 1,000 Japanese. Our reserves finally join the invasion, but in limited numbers due to supply issues. However, 10,000 active reserve units strike down the east coast, pushing down 10 miles and killing 10,000 Japanese soldiers while only losing 500 men. SOLDIER STATUS: Active- 30,500 (20,500 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases and in Puerto Rico) Active Reserve- 49,500 (Ready for Invasions) Inactive Reserve- 70,000 (Are ready to be deployed.) Navy: 50 ships. French: 33,500 Men + Naval support Japanese: ~120,000 men left on Japanese mainland, ~45,000 on Korean peninsula. WAR POPULARITY: War popularity is the same, around 88%. @Conservative Elector 2 you are still President during election season, so you get to do one more military turn. Also, Austria decided to postpone trade negotiations. State of the Union for Election of 1928 @Hestia11 @CalebsParadox @MBDemSoc @Reagan04 @Conservative Elector 2 @WVProgressive @Sami ---------------------------------------------------------------------- National Strength: We rank 4th in the list of the top 10 countries: Russia, Germany, Great Britain, United States, France, Mexico, Japan, Italy, Austria, Sweden. Military Strength: Our professional army is ~30,000 men and 50 ships, with a reserve army of ~120,000 men solely for defense. We have naval bases in Hawaii, Cuba, Panama, St. Pierre and Miquelon, and American Polynesia. Foreign Affairs: We are currently at war with the Japanese Empire. We are winning this war, and it is us, the French, and the Chinese against just Japan. Military: Our military is active. Our navy is fully deployed around Japan, obstructing supply lines to Korea and protecting our invasion and supply lines. We control thirty miles of northern Japan, and forty miles of the northern east coast of Japan. We have 80,000 troops in the fight, and the French have 33,500 in the fight, against a force of 120,000 Japanese soldiers. Economy: The economy is on a decline, as industries shift towards wartime production. Some people predict this war may branch out towards other wars, and may be acting hasty changing our industries. Trade: We trade 20% with non-European powers, 18% with Britain, 17% with Germany, 21% with France, and 24% with other non-radical European powers. Trade declines a bit as we are at war. Budget: Our budget is currently balanced, with 5% of our spending going to paying off our debt, aimed to be paid off by 1934. Our budget consists of the income of 40% taxes 38% tariff 12% overseas territories/canals and 10% nationalized industries, and the expenditure of 70% military 10% gov. upkeep 15% infrastructure and 5% debt repayment´╗┐. Social Harmony: The country is united strongly during our defensive war against the Japanese Empire. Immigration: Immigration has begun to grow at a healthy pace. Mood of the people: People are happy in the sense they are proud of their country's goals, but there are some worries about the economy. Party Power: Conservatives have the Senate, and the Liberals have the House majority if including the sociaists. Popularity of the Incumbent: The president is outrageously popular, ending midterms with a 75% approval rating and 18% disapproval rating ____________________________________________ Name and office: Age: Party: Resident state: VP nominee: Key Issue to Defend in Debate: Platform (see State of the Union):

    Black dominance of the South during the mid 1800's lead to a much smoother race divide, as there wasn't a huge growth of inequality poverty. There is discrimination against asians, but about the same as irl.

    As a side note, the current composition of monarchies in Europe consists of France, Britain, Germany, Ottomans, and Russia, while the republics are Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium, all of Scandinavia minus Denmark which was split up, and a reformed Austria-Hungary. The radicals are Italy and Greece. The rest are neutral, with mixed governments. The U.S. had the 49th State of Hawaii, the 50th State of Cuba, and the 51st State of Puerto Rico. The economic dynamic is about where it was irl, but slightly more left, while the social dynamic is a decent difference to the right. We haven't had a WW1, as the last major war was more a bigger Franco-Prussian war.

    Cuba and Puerto Rico become States. Cuba has 20 electoral votes, and Puerto Rico has 8. China is still bogged down in Korea. Our military gets bogged down in Japan. We and the French both lose one thousand men, and Japan loses two thousand. Our reserves are now ready to join the invasion, and all troops are ready for more orders from the commander in chief @Conservative Elector 2 SOLDIER STATUS: Active- 32,000 (22,000 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases and in Puerto Rico) Active Reserve- 50,000 (Ready for Invasions) Inactive Reserve- 70,000 (Are ready to be deployed.) Navy: 50 ships. French: 34,000 Men + Naval support WAR POPULARITY: These bogged up invasions barely effect war popularity, as it lingers around 88%.

    You can be any character you want, you just either join a party by running a candidate under their party, or you create your own (creating your own is a super slow buildup though).

    There is a lot of potential for unique angles on issues. While our America is currently socially righter than historically, our economy is similar.

    This will be presented to Congress after Midterms. An assault of 35,000 French and 25,000 U.S. troops take a northern assault to Japan's northernmost island with their naval supremacy, and successfully establish ownership over this island. Casualties from this invasion are 2,000 French and 1,500 U.S. troops. Japan's 10,000 in the northern most island surrender. A followup invasion to Japan's main island has begun, and we have officially established landfall. We have pushed fifty miles south. Japan lost 7,500 men to our 3,000 French and 3,500 U.S. Propaganda leaflets have achieved great success, as there are anti-war rebels in various cities throughout Japan. China gets bogged down in Korea. OVERALL STATUS OF THE WAR: American-French-Chinese side is winning, however with high American casualties (27,000 so far). SOLDIER STATUS: Active- 33,000 (23,000 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases and in Puerto Rico) Active Reserve- 50,000 (En route to the Pacific Front) Inactive Reserve- 70,000 (Are ready to be deployed.) Navy: 50 ships. French: 35,000 Men + Naval support WAR POPULARITY: Our string of victories has increased the popularity of the war to an astounding 90%. You don't need Congress, Commander in Chief. These will be in the region next war turn. The compromise bill passes. MIDTERMS Congress Liberal 20/48 Senate 42% US Rep Conservatives 27/48 Senate 47% US Rep Socialists 1/48 Senate 11% US Rep´╗┐ RP Note: Conservatives make gains in the Senate, but Liberals grab more house seats from a declining Socialist Party.

    Cuba will likely be lean Conservative. Analysts have also prepared electoral notes of Puerto Rico Puerto Rico will be worth around 8 electoral votes, and will be Conservative. Currently, they support remaining a territory. To start off, the Chinese co-operate an invasion with us and will invade the Korean Peninsula, and will work with us to establish a Government there in the future. We have begun to roll out planes for warfare, but not at a massive rate. They have proven effective at scouting enemy locations before ambitious landings. Operation Lightning has failed its first attempt, with basically the whole U.S. navy supporting 50,000 troops against 30,000 Japanese. We lost around 5,000 troops while the Japanese lost only 2,000. A small 5,000 group of U.S. soldiers got completely wiped out trying to capture the islands of Okinawa by a tsunami. Your military later attempted Operation Thunderbolt, with a fully-recovered 40,000 troops and basically the whole navy. This operation was also a failure, with 12,000 U.S soldiers dying and only 1,000 Japanese dying from their force of 20,000. The naval front was much more of a success, sinking a majority of Japanese ships and making the rest weak enough where they can not obstruct naval landings. This allows the Dutch to recapture their islands. However, once recapturing their islands, the Dutch refused to help us. The French, in a surprise move, have decided to help us out by re-capturing all outposts outside of Japan that they owned, with minimal casualties. They have officially entered the war on our side, citing that our crucial help in their revolution is enough to utilize French lives to protect American interests. They have sent a force of 40,000 men to co-operate with American generals on future invasion plans. China has made some progress into the Korean peninsula. OVERALL STATUS OF THE WAR: American-French-Chinese side is winning, however with high American casualties (22,000 so far). SOLDIER STATUS: Active- 38,000 (28,000 in the Pacific Front and 10,000 protecting bases and in Puerto Rico) Reserve- 120,000 (Are now ready to be deployed, President needs to order how many will join the front.) Navy: 50 ships. WAR POPULARITY: While the casualty number has hurt a small percentage of war supporters, the patriotic response to an attempted assassination and defensive war, along with the French joining the war adding much more optimism, plus the various victories outside our main operations, has made the war popular among ~85% of Americans. CONGRESS PONAFA Act BUDGETING The war has not ruined the budget yet, as we have not had to mobilize our country beyond mobilizing our manpower. We are basically pretty balanced and just not paying debt payments at this moment. MIDTERMS These will commence after the President's next actions and @Reagan04 's push. RP NOTE As a RP gamemaster I must say this war is the most awesome thing that has happened before, and I am truly happy to see all the effort and communication behind it.
