The system of the US is capable of ties too, they have their own protocol for that. Renea's could also end in a tie (though highly unlikely), and we also have our own protocol for that.
I dont have protocol for a tie, Whats yours? I might just steal it lol
It was actually bloodless.
(Everyone hated that leader for the choices he made, and so when the coup happened, he was the only casualty, so almost bloodless)
Cyote had a bloodless coup and was a dictator for a few months.
Our new leader had their bloodless coup ad is dictator for life!
We don't agree with the ethic of single rule but I can't really complain right now can I?
"Following new legislation in Bronisland, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines."
Are babies not already like that?
Not the Tubbius family babies. They simply don't age and just get plumper.
Well, that's nothing new.
What if I go and give my nation's military an actual purpose.
Rather than just being there, what if I sook the time to really make a doctrine, real battle plans, refine my military equipment so that it reflects my needs, and just make it better in general.
I've been reading up on this matter a lot in the forums, and I think I have a good idea of what to do.
Besides that, does anyone have, like, any personal suggestions that they've found out over their time making military or military RPing?
Try not to get too swept up in the 'cool' factor. There's indulgence, but then there's pointlessness. Flamethrowers are 'cool', but absolutely outmoded by today's standards by either bunker-busting munitions, readily available explosives, or thermobaric weapons. Don't expect to lean heavily on one tool and expect a min-maxed military to work-- militaries need a well-rounded, widely equipped force structure to function properly. Just because you have so good of air defense systems does not mean you don't need an air force.
As for doctrine, don't get tripped up on one simple thing; tactics are not strategies are not doctrine. Beloved buzzwords for NS'ers are 'Defense in Depth' and 'Combined Arms', etc. These are strategies, or perhaps not even that, just ethos. Don't summarize your military's behaviors into buzzwords. For doctrine, understand that it is the highest level of military thinking, so much so that it nearly blends into geopolitics rather than just warfare. As such, don't say how your troops will fight (tactics) or how your generals will direct them (strategy), but list the perceived threats to your nation (such as specifically !NotRussia, nude libertarian terrorists, or emerging nuclear powers (Cough !NotNKorea)), the present ability of your nation to counteract them or fight them should war occur (economic strength of MIC, political alliances or diplomatic geography, technological readiness, overall capability to wage war or otherwise) and where the nation's leaders or military thinkers hope to see development in the military if they are coming short of complete assurance of victory.
Also making factbooks for military equipment is badass is useful for referencing original (therefore generally interesting) military equipment for writing posts and understanding how your military would work, but should not be the end-all I-Win-You-Lose-At-War statement. Also, in terms of RP'ing, don't lose focus of what you're trying to do. Writers, particularly on NS, have a thing where they ramble about the technical specifications of a goddamn boat for a hundred words and people start wondering why they just didn't link a factbook and be done with it. You are trying to write a story, hopefully, and not a number-laden flex of imaginary military might. Give your readers a story, not a factbook. That's what factbooks are for.
Edit2: Also, since I see you already have equipment factbooks, consider reexamining what you have rather than try to make a single explanation for the stuff you have. Ask yourself, 'does my military need this?' 'What real purpose does it serve?' 'Is there anything else that does this same job?' and so forth.
Defense funds accidentally sent to health department amidst military arming ramping up
With a few international incidents recently involving Renea's military, it's no surprise that Sazanami was able to pass a bill to allocate more funds for the production of nuclear weapons to add to the current stockpile. However, there was one fatal mistake within the legislature; the funds were allocated to the Tsukinomiyako Nuclear Weapons Plant, a mothballed nuclear weapons production site that legally does not exist, which also happened to be the only one of its kind in the nation.
It would appear that Sazanami is completely unaware Renea hasn't produced a new nuclear device in over half a century, and failed to reactivate the plant before creating the edict that funded it.
The money ended up being sent anyway because the treasury also just assumed that it still exists, but unable to find an address to send the money to, it was diverted into the Prefectural Bank of Tsukinomiyako. Assuming the money was for the request they had sent in 7 months ago, the funds were allocated to the Department of Health's office in the prefecture.
Upon realizing this, Sazanami has addressed the Renean people publically.
"I am reeling in embarassment after the budget mixup that has occurred recently. The humiliating mistake has sent 2.1 trillion Youmyons in defense funds to the public healthcare sector, and believe me, a public hospital is the last place I wanted to see that money go. It was a grave error, and there is no one to blame but myself for such a catastrophic mistake. While we have recovered most of the funds since, it will never serve to truly rectify this mistake, and I am truly sorry for betraying the trust of the Renean people who have placed me in this office."
-Vice-President Sazanami Mio (Mio Sazanami for you international nerds)
The military has stated that it will never financially recover from this.
