    NEWS FLASH!!!

    Cuban terrorists have been getting quite unruly, and have discovered and are currently torturing the undercover Mexican agents. They have obtained vital information about the Empire of De La Rocha. They have vowed that by tomorrow there will be a massive terrorist strike that will cripple Mexico. Mexico has put the country on a highest alert status, and is beginning a Militant Invasion of Cuba to quell the terrorist revolution.

    we do not seek your help with the terrorists. Mexico has the situation under control. If you wish to help Mexioc, you may donate to our military.
    We would like to say that they are getting 3 diatecian approved meals a day, and sleep is not eight hours, but six.

    What exactly get's your metaphorical goat about the adjournmnet camps? What can we do, within reason to improve realtions with France? Besides getting rid of the vitality adjournment camps of course! As a sign of good will, Mexico has signed up all of the "power hungry bastards" for the fruit of the month club! Also, Mexico has also sent you some waorkers, supplies, and machinery to aid in the improvement of your infrastructure. Mexico has also ensured that those who are employed in the vitality adjournment camps are getting slightly more rations, and an extra hour and a half of sleep time.
    If you can let us insure that your Vitality Adjournment Camp workers are getting 8 hours of sleep a day and dietician-approved meals 3 times daily, we will help you with the terrorists.

    when I say 15.5 i mena that is he percent of the population that doesn't like the country. Is that right? or am i doing something wrong here?
    I probably would have done better to use real world numbers, but the measurements in this NES are just a sliding scale...

    0 is "everyone's happy and peaceful" (Canada)
    20 is "there's a few people who are pissed off"
    40 is "many people dislike the government"
    60 is "active demonstrations and lots of distrust, dislike of the government and/or society"
    Anything above 70 is generally asking for a f*cking revolution. Of course, for roleplay purposes you can have those rogue Cuban terrorists attacking at any time, but a revolution in the sense that it has popular support has to be above 70 (most cases. It's not an exact thing.)

    Likewise, "economy" isn't a specific number either. 45 as my econ. number doesn't mean I have 55% unemployment or that my GDP is 45% of its 2003 level or anything at all. It's just a general "idea" of the wealth of France, specifically the wealth of the majority class. 45 isn't low enough that there are masses starving out in the streets, but it is a pretty damn bad number, and makes people only able to afford the basics. Discontent would be related to economy in that if the economy continues improving, discontent evaporates because you have a larger employed class that can afford more.

    Again, it's not an exact science. That's why I made it a low-moderation NES: it's got the roleplay elements and interaction of a story, but without all the extras that can slow the game down.

    Mexico to Russia
    Mexico would like to purchase naval supplies and weapons from Mother Russia.

    Mexican peace talks with Cuban terrorists have not been going well. The terrorists have been meeting for peacetalks, and then suicide bombing them. They have been threatening Mexico, but have yet to take any major action as of yet. Covert actions have been mildily successful, but we have yet to get close enough to actually kill the leader of the movement.

    Russia to Mexico:

    We can sell you small arms, machine tools, ship hulls, standard supplies, engines, things of that nature.


    OOC: I'm not exactly sure what the real world equivalent of discontent is--all I know is the lower the number the better. For all of the statistic fields I gave generally taken it to be a sort of sliding scale, with 40 to 60 being "average"/ "sufficient" but I'm not sure how accurate that is.

    What exactly do you mean? Just start trading? Sure! Let the trade begin! But Mexico is cautious of this. We demand that you send us WORKING weapons, and battle ready boats before we enter into this agreement.
    (out of character)
    how is discontent measured?

    Russia to Mexico:

    For too long we have been effectively cut off from the countries of the west, we seek to remedy that by building closer ties. We seek to establish permanent diplomatic channels and strike down trade barriers.

    Economy: 52 (more trade, jobs, investment, better equipment)
    Army: 45 (better weapons)

    NEWS FLASH!

    Mexican Cuban relations are being disturbed by an uprising in Cuba and terrorist forces attacking mother Mexico! Mexico is beginning peace talks with the terrorist upring groups, and covert intervention to stop the bloodshed. Trade with Cuba has stopped until we can ensure safety for the Cuban people.

    France News
    The King has set up a House of Rich Backstabbing Mother****ing Liars to lead the country. They will be elected by the people, and each "campaign" for their positions. This is due to France wanting more voice in its government. I will show them the error in their ways--they must be blind, if they wish to have less of King Mrmitchell's control in politics.

    France is slightly disturbed at Mexico's Vitality Adjournment Camps, but we will not take action yet. We wish to ensure that your prisoners are being given the minimum requirements that any decent, human country would give to any human being.

    Economy 49 (+2)
    Army 42 (+1)
    Navy 44 (-1)
    Air 40 (+3)
    Discontent 45 (-5; new work and new infrastructure)
    Infrastructure 78 (+2)
    Education 79 (+1)
    Economy 50 (+1, recovery slowing some)
    Army 42 (+0)
    Navy 44 (+0)
    Air 41 (+1)
    Discontent 42 (-3; new freedom to elect greedy powerhungry bastards of their choice)
    Infrastructure 80 (+2, the France Infrastructure Corporation continues to work)
    Education 80 (+1)

    Mexico has decided to metaphorically "beef up" its national pride. The sole focus is on the superiority of Mexio as a state, a wonderful communistic state. The state has two of its own television channels, one that emphasizes the pride of being a citizen of the all powerful, ever mighty, and oddly cutaneous Mexico, and the other focuses on the superiority of the CHicano race! Mexico has engraved in its people the great sense of pride that come with being a memeber of the national comunity of Mexico. The pride that comes from knowing, that we're all working for eachother and for the state. Mexico has thus changed its education system. CHildren are identified at birth, as being either academically inclined, or physically inclined. The academically inclined, are taken to special state run camps that emphasize the values of concentration, among other academic activities. The physically inclined are raised to be workers, and soldiers for the glorious state of Mexico. They are given special steriod suplements at key points in their development as soldiers. The prisoners in the Meixcan prison system are also put ot work, but with fewer breaks and food, for they have betrayed the Mexican empire, and their fellow citizens. Prison labor is focused primarily on creating weapons and such for the military. Dissenters are sent to the "vitality adjournment camps" where they work tirelessly under incessant watch. "Vitality Adjounment" usually takes a matter of weeks, so these places are rather empty. Mexico is continuing to strengthen its realtions with Cuba.

    Economy- 47.2 new system is proving to be profitable, and Cuban relations are good!

    Military- 45.0 Using the "Nike" tactic of cheap chinese labor to gain produce many supplies for a cheap price, the military is well supplied

    Education- 15.3/50.1 - 15 for the workers 50 for the state employed academics

    Dissent- 15.3- but they're all in the "Vitality Adjournment Camps"

    Infrastructure- 52.5 militarizing country involves infrastructure upgrades.
