German Polish Non Agression Pact

The German Republic and the Republic of Poland agree on the following:
1) To adopt a policy of non aggression towards any signatory of this agreement
2) To work with each others to stop any attempt from foreign countries to overthrow the rightful government of Germany and Poland
3) To end this so called "trade and customs" war by reducing tariffs back to those of 1922

X War Minister Koc


We are pleased to announce a new era in our relations with Germany, an era of appeasement and cooperation.

Chancellor Hugenberg has proven to be a worthy foreign partner by eliminating Adolf Hitler and his clique whose bellicist and anti polish views were very much well known. We present to the Zentrum Party and to Germany our condoleances for the assassination of the mayor of Koln, Konrad Adenauer.

We pray, as a christian nation, for the end of this so called " german civil war" as soon as possible/

Hugenberg calls for the people to fight to protect the German nation


My fellow Germans,

In the past year, since I was elected Chancellor, I have been trying to fix our country which was damaged by years of instability, chaos and destruction. To help the German nation to heal from despair and rise back, stronger than ever. I am proud with what I have done and I trust that I have done my best to improve the life of each and every one of you.

However, in my way stood 3 parties. All 3 of them were led by demagogues, by people who tricked well-meaning Germans who failed into desperation that they would save them and fix the problems of our nation. They had no intention of doing so, not least because they had no idea how to do it. All they cared about was their personal power. For a year, they have allied, despite claiming to hate each other, and blocked me from getting my agenda through, an agenda, which would have save the German economy and restored our national pride.

When I cracked down on their paramilitaries and refused to allow them to wreck havoc over the cities of the country I was in charge of, they understood that I am not the one to allow them to get power bloodlessly. So what did they do? The NSDAP burned the Reichstag down, then they attempted to take over Berlin. I hold no ill will towards people who voted for this party, I truly do not. I understand why they felt our country to be humiliated, why they thought radical solutions were necessary. However, Herr Hitler and his dubious clique were not the ones who could get it done. All Hitler cared about was his personal power. I plan to be a different type of Chancellor, one who will never let our country down, who will have it rise back from its ashes, and I hope you will join me in this struggle.

Now, our nation faces the ultimate test. The Bolsheviks, those who seek to take over your private property, who wants to get rid of our culture and hand it over to Moscow, have decided to revolt because the Reichswehr would not let them lynch citizens! Together with them are also the cowardly Social Democrats, who only cared about democracy as long as it suited their interests! If they win, Germany loses! If they win, Bolshevism will be imposed over Germany! That must never happen!

I call on all patriotic forces, on all Germans. Join me in my fight for a stronger Germany! I call on all people, no matter their ideological beliefs, who want to take down Bolshevism for good, to join me! I call on Zentrum, who know now first hand what these out-of-control fanatics are capable of. Join me,  for stability and safety! For I will always respect your rights! I call on farmers, workers! Join me, for I will make sure your life gets better and you do not end up on a collective farm or in a government-controlled factory with no wage! I call on all patriots! The ranks of Der Stahlhelm are now open to everyone who wants to make a difference, to support the vanguard against Bolshevism! Join me, and you will be hailed as veterans! This is our chance to save Germany and it might be the only one.

Thank you for your attention,
Alfred Hugenberg, Chancellor of Germany

Stalin on the unity of workers

In recent times, we have seen the rise of reactionaries determined to maintain their power. Germany, Austria, Italy, Hungary . . . these nations have seen fit to rattle their sabres, then cry wolf the second anyone dares to take a stand against them. One onaly need see the actions in Hungary to understand this.

Let us be clear: The Soviet Union will honour its guarantees to Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and Romania.

In these dark times, we must heed that precept of that great revolutionary, Vladimir Lenin: Workers of the world, unite!

In Germany, an attempt has been made by the old feudalist Hugenberg to assault the workers.His thugs attack them in the streets, march to restore a disgraced Kaiser, all with a fanatical hatred of any worker who dares defend his rights. Because of this, Germany now finds itself in civil war.

The bleating of the Kaiser's most loyal sheep must not distract from his attempts to restore a feudal order over a world that has left him behind.

We shall not allow this to stand.

I call on all workers of Germany, whether you be communist or social democratic, to unite under one banner, and free their country from that barbarous old feudalist!

Alfred Hugenberg: "The legitimate government of the German Reich would ask the governments of Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and Romania to stop their invasion, but we know that would be pointless, as their obsessive desire to break Hungarian national spirit runs too deep, beyond any appeals to sanity. However, we call for the people of Hungary to stay strong and resist through these tough times. Do not give up your country and your national pride to attackers! We would also like to congratulate Regent Miklos Horthy for the admirable job he has been doing as the protector of his people, and urge him to hold on."

The Prime Minister will call an early election, to be held in December of 1934. The Conservative campaign literature will discuss the election of Mr. Lang in Australia, highlighting his constitutional scandal and radical positions, and tying Mr. King and the Liberal Party to Mr. Lang’s Labor Party. The Prime Minister will present Mr. Lang and Mr. King as two sides of the same coin, with both being wrong for the Dominion. The Prime Minister will also argue that the stability of the Commonwealth requires the election of a Conservative government in Canada to off-set the radical regime of Mr. Lang.

-The immigrant must not be carrying any contagious illnesses.
- The immigrant must not be a wanted criminal in their country of origin.
- The immigrant must not be trying to evade military service in their country of origin

Balkan Mutual Defense Treaty


Be it resolved,

1. The Republic of Turkey condemns recent aggression by the Kingdom of Hungary against its neighboring states, destabilizing peace in Europe and potentially abroad.

2. To ensure that the ongoing conflict in the Balkans can be swiftly resolved, the Republic of Turkey is distributing a targeted financial and military aid package to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and the Czechoslovak Republic.

3. Yugoslavia shall be the beneficiary of firearms, artillery, ammunition, missiles, protective gear, and other items which are regarded as necessary in the battlefield. Aid shall be issued in monthly increments over the next year following ratification of this treaty, or until the conflict is formally deemed as resolved should this occur prior to all aid being distributed.

4. Czechoslovakia shall receive a lump sum of $25 million in the form of a non-interest-payable loan. These aid funds are issued with the purpose of providing immediate liquidity for the Czechoslovakian government to finance military operations in conjunction with regular duties of the state. Payment terms are delayed until following the resolution of the Hungarian conflict.

5. The signatories acknowledge the sensitive geopolitical climate which Europe is currently under. To provide ample security for the respective nations’ people, Turkey, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and Romania agree to form a mutual defense pact. This pact stipulates that all aforementioned nations shall provide military assistance to each other in the event of an outside nation-state posing acts of aggression or otherwise requiring imminent self-defense measures to be implemented by armed forces.

6. The mutual defense pact is effective indefinitely until all signatories jointly authorize new terms and conditions. Aid measures presented in this treaty are subject to possible renewal and/or review as warranted.

The Turkish government is dismayed to learn of the move by the United States to cut diplomatic ties and implement sanctions. it is evident that current American leadership would rather antagonize its allies in the Balkans and beyond when faced with a rogue state threatening continental stability.

The Balkan Mutual Defense Treaty was drafted by our top officials with the collaboration of other involved states to solve the Hungarian dilemma. It is in the interest of the global community that this war is swiftly resolved before other opportunistic actors decide further bloodshed is on their agenda. In the absence of true leadership from the West, the world order requires new direction. Turkey shall continue to engage in acts such as this as a leader unifying Europe and the Orient.

The Soviet Union must express it's puzzlement at American actions, given the aid package provided to the Eastern states just lat year.

The Union is more than happy to step into the void the US leaves, and invites the Treaty's foreign ministers to Moscow to discuss mutually beneficial arrangements for the anti-fascist cause.

Has Mister Stalin ever heard of the concept of making a mistake? We made an error in providing an aid package to Yugoslavia, and by introducing sanctions, we intend to fix the mistake we made.

Your meddling is only going to make the war worse, not better.

Newly elected Prime Minister Jack 'JT' Lang Hails surprise Victory; Condemns 'Mad-Man' Hugenberg

Australian Capital Territory, - The newly elected Prime Minister of Australia, Jack 'JT' Lang, has hailed his parties surprise victory in the general election as a "victory" for the common-man and prosperity in his first speech outside of Parliament House.

"You voted for a government that will lead this nation with a firm hand for prosperity for all Australians through these troubling times. It is to you that we, The Australian Labor Party, owe our allegiance and it is with your interests we shall lead and fight for the prosperity of The whole Australian Commonwealth"

In his speech, Prime Minister Lang laid out an ambitious and Progressive agenda, including chiefly the establishment of government services for Healthcare among the countries impoverished and a bill to delay further debt payments to Great Britain as part of an effort to balance the newly established Commonwealth's coffers during difficult economic times. The PM indicated that he had made private appeals to the British government to begin negotiations in Sydney for discussion of these issues as well as agreement on a way forward for mutual Commonwealth Prosperity.

Ending his speech, Prime Minister Lang made note of the increasingly dangerous situation in Germany and condemned "that man-man, Hugenberg" as an autocrat that was assaulting the working-class in the interests of his 'wealthy cronies'. The PM indicated that a bill would be submitted to Parliament calling on the Commonwealth as a whole to condemn the actions of the German government and consider possible support to beleaguered Germans Social Democrats.

Following complaints from other members of the Administration, President Roosevelt has rescinded the offer of Secretary of the Treasury to Walter George and will instead offer the position to Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace.

George will instead be offered the position of Secretary of Agriculture.

President Roosevelt will formally nominate Henry Wallace to the position of Treasury Secretary and Walter George to the position of Secretary of Agriculture for consideration during the lame duck session of Congress, and will renominate them if not considered before the new Congress meets.
