    German Officials are proud to announce today that Kaiser Vexen has finally passed his National Geography test, and has been able to locate Posen on a Geography Map.

    In other news Kaiser Vexen has also passed new laws in reference to "Stricter Punishments for High School Geography Teachers"*.

    When asked about the apparrent Tensions in the Atlantic, The Kaiser only said he was very confused. Asked if Fall had Fallen yet and began muttering something about building more tanky things . . . and playing with his pewter figures and world map.

    Shanghai Wen Wei Po

    France Invades Britain!
    French armies have invaded the British mainland in an audacious repeat of the Norman Invasion of 1066! Preliminary reports suggest that London has fallen to the rampaging French armies.

    China Comes to Britain's Aid
    In response to French aggression, Great China has declared war! In a daring naval sortie, Admiral Zheng He led the Chinese 1st squadron into Cam Ranh Bay (Saigon) with no opposition. With the loss of their provincial capital, France's territorial ambitions in SE Asia have been squashed. All China celebrates the freeing of our brothers from the imperialistic yoke!

    Russians Occupy Sinkiang
    The ethnic Chinese province of Sinkiang has been occupied by the Russians. Concern over hostile intentions is high in Peking. In a short statement Foreign Minister Han Xiang Zi expressed confidence that the territorial ambitions of both nations in Central Asia would be peaceably resolved.

    British Empire Ruled by Corpse?
    Sadness over of the death of Queen Victoria quickly turned into a feeling of confusion when it was announced that Prince Albert would assume the throne. As Prince Albert died in 1861, the government is understandably confused over succession in the British government. Shanghai merchant Shih Po had this to say: "I though we were the only culture to venerate its ancestors so highly. Apparently not."

    Paris Report

    In recent world news, France has invaded England, shocking many diplomats around the world. When questioned for why make the audacious move against England, Monsieur Jaques Sol had this to say:

    "Well, we were pretty bored and England was just sitting there. We felt that it was time that the army and navy earned their keep, so we mobilized them against the English.

    In response, China has claimed to have declared war upon France. However, their warmongering actions preceded any news of london falling. So, Japan, Russia, and India must wonder about having such a dangerous neighbor. If they declare war so easily, why won't they declare war on another, just to keep their machine of destruction going? These questions are things we must ask ourselves for the good of our nations."

    China Finds Paris Report Laughable

    France's latest j'accuse screed calls China warmonger for its liberation of Saigon. When asked for comment, Foreign Minister Han Xiang Zi expressed amusement at the French attack. "This is coming from a government that invaded London? It seems to me like the pot is calling the kettle black."

    Also, General Li Po, head of the War Ministry discounts French claims that China acted without provocation. "It was plain to see the French had obviously hostile intent towards the British Empire, and we acted accordingly. The French are just angry that there plan for domination of the British has been dealt a blow."

    Chinese officials have also denounced French efforts to turn China's regional allies against it. It is obvious that the distribution of Chinese forces poses no serious threat to the homelands of any nation in Asia.

    Italians Call For War With France, King Vittorio Refuses

    While our people sympathize deeply with the people of England, and wish to assist them by whatever means necessary, King Vittorio has put an official kibosh on military reprisals against the Republic. Instead he has encouraged concerned citizens to send care packages to the victims of French aggression in London and the English countryside.

    People of Pentopolis Proud to be Italian

    According to a recent poll, seventy-four percent of Africans in the recently acquired colonies of Pentopolis and Ethiopia claim to be satisfied with life under Italian rule. We are implementing fair trade practices and appointing natives to political office in attempts to increase our approval rating. We hope that by providing a positive example of colonial rule in these provinces, the absorption of Egypt and Tunisia should be made easier in the coming year.

    In light of our army's recent return to Venice, the Austrian fleet that had been menacing the Adriatic Sea has taken off for Albania, making the region once again secure for our private fishing operations.

    Recent Speech from the PM

    "We were expecting a different battle manuever from France. It was necessary to take precautions... But those precautions led to the taking of our beloved capital from right under our noses. Therefore, it will be dealt with accordingly, and the taking of Norway will be kept in mind after the French are expelled from our nation."

    France Fears for Far Eastern Empires

    International adress from Minister Sol of the French Republic

    "In the past year, China has shown extreme agressiveness, assaulting the French colony Saigon unprovokedly. China has claimed that they only declared war in response to the invasion of London. However, it is an established fact that the news of these two invasions came out simultaneously. This shows that China was using the excuse of its alliance with England to further its warmongering goals rather than in a show of freindship. I speak of this in interest of Japan, India, and Russia, who are exceptionally close to this nation of darkness. While we understand that we have no right to stick our nose in the affairs of Asia, we respectfully suggest that China is dealt with before it becomes a wild freight train with no control whatsoever."

    In the past year France has shown extreme aggressiveness, assaulting the British capital of London without provocation. I speak of this in the interest of Germany, Italy, and Britain, who are exceptionally close to this nation of darkness.

    China Sends Delegation to Moscow

    A high-ranking delegation of diplomats and generals have been sent to Moscow in an attempt to repair relations after tensions rose over control of Mongolia. The clerk responsible for the dispatch used incorrect language, suggesting that we have hostile intentions towards Russia. Rest assured he has been sacked and replaced by trained llamas, which promises increased accuracy along with a spiffy new color scheme.

    India Fears for Switzerland

    In recent months, the news about Switzerland has been slim, at best. It is difficult to say what is going on in this nation, but we can confidently say that there is danger brewing for them. Why is everyone so secretive about the Swiss? Why is no news blowing eastward? In the coming months, it is all but certain that they will be attacked.

    The Geneva Gazette

    No Need to Fear for Switzerland
    In response to Indian statements of concern for the state of the Swiss nation, President Muller issued a statement today assuring all who fear for the state of Switzerland's neutrality that all is well in the middle of Europe. "We have received assurances from all nearby nations that they have no intention of attacking us. We believe that the combination of our mountainous terrain and small but committed defensive army will keep any potential invaders well away, and look forward to years of peace and neutrality, whatever the state of affairs in the rest of Europe."

    I just re-sent my orders just in case. I understand the delay, and will patiently wait, I am just grateful that someone will be GM 'cause i don't really want to mess with it. It just seems odd because J_Muller posted in defence of Switzerland yesterday just hours before the deadline.

    I too cast my vote for orders still being due on Wednesday. Though mine won't be as easy as italy's.

    Italian to do list:

    1. order troops to conquer africa
    2. Send diplomats to foreign nations to remind them that Italy is a small nation and should be ignored.
    3. Silently plot to take over the world.
    4. laugh Maniacally.

    To loosely quote my Modern Germany History professor from class today:

    "When you're Italy, you can scramble for colonies and everyone can just sort of smile and laugh at you, but when you've already got the strongest military and industry in Europe, people get nervous when you start talking about expansion."

    That is not to say that I am trying to make myself look small and impotent; rather, I think I have asserted myself as a world power in all of my diplomatic negotiations. However, neither do I want to let you get away with trying to portray yourself as anything but a major contender.

    German Press Release:

    Future German Expansion?


    Kaiser Vexen, attended a play last evening while waiting for Winter to fall. He refused to comment to press agents at the time, however, upon leaving a to do list fell out of his pocket. The contents of which have created a great stir in the news room as everyone trys to figure out what it means. We have listed it here for our readers:
    To do:
    Find Babysitter
    Talk to Bank
    Buy some Cookies
    call friends on new fangled telephone
    play with little pewter toys

    We truly were expecting with the current turmoil in Europe and the mass confusion in the East something more along the lines of:

    To do:
    1. Conquer Low countries
    2. Send diplomats to neighboring countries to convince them Germany is their ally and not a threat.
    3. Silently plot to take over the world.
    4. Laugh like a typical German Kaiser.

    He was on about seven minuites ago, so I can't imagine that he's shirking his duties. He's probably just waiting out on someone's build orders. But enough speculation. Since everyone is listing today, I guess I will.

    The Paris Report

    Prime Minister Monsieur Jaques Sol has globally anounced his public agenda. However, he refuses to give the media his hidden agenda at this time. The world media hopes to convince him to reveal his hidden agenda, to create more liberty of the press.

    Agenda:
    Learn Guitar
    Write Essays on American Poets and Functions
    Study American History
    Party like it's 1899.
    Openly plot to take over the world. (Hint: It involves the Army and the Navy)

    France Wonders about Austrian Lack of Recruitment

    While other countries enacted massive drafts to bring their formidiable forces to bear, Austria stood still. French media wonders why? Have they decided to just give up and be swallowed by Turkey and Russia? Or is this a cunning plan to make them seem less of a force, allowing themselves to be allied by their neighbors. All that is evident is that Austria will be important in the next few years.

    China Raises Fleet - Trouble in Paradise for Asia?

    Although the Japanese government has yet to comment on the matter, we at Il Mondo Italiano fear that China may be preparing for an eventual war with Japan. While conflict is unlikely this year, we will be closely following the situation and we expect the ensuing eruption to surpass legendary Pompeii.

    Ottoman Empire Respects Italian Claims

    The Ottomans have been very good boys lately. They have yielded to Italian stewardship of Africa and have further pleased our great nation by not building any fleets this year. We expect a shipment of Turkish Delight is also on the way.

    Italy and France Sign "Best Friends For Life" Treaty in Hall of Mirrors

    King Vittorio and President Sol got together in the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles this Winter to formally declare their status as "BFFs" and to weave friendship bracelets. Mutual understanding on the Marseilles issue was the official cause for the celebration, although it is rumored that an agreement regarding the stewardship of Morocco was also hammered out.

    The Geneva Gazette

    Huge Increases In Military Spending Worldwide!
    Nations across the world dramatically increased their defense budgets this year, amidst fears of global conflict. With the notable exception of Austria, all of the world's major powers expanded their armed forces over the winter of 1901. Tensions run high from Paris to Tokyo, and the resurgence of the ancient conflict between England and France is surely not the only war the world will see in the coming years.

    Reichsmarine Swells
    The German government received from its shipyards the latest generation of the German naval forces recently, tripling the size of the Reichsmarine. Germany now possesses one of the three largest navies in Europe.

    The Russian Juggernaut
    After a huge round of drafts, hordes of young Russian men have been called up to serve their country, giving Russia the largest land force in the world.
