    Real Life Civ

    In other news, the Persians denounced the Ottomans and the Arabians for being the puppets of Washington and attempting coups in Assyrian city states. A Persian spy was captured, but only admitted to being a missionary.

    The Chinese denounced America for being too close to their borders with a large naval force, while signing a DoF and defence pact with China's neighbour Korea.

    Greece is running minus GPT and has almost completely stopped production and building infrastructure thanks to civilian units being disbanded.

    Germany has lost some happiness after gifting some of its last luxury resources to unhappy civs like Greece and Spain.

    America, in the meantime, completed another section of its spaceship with a successful test flight.

    News flash:

    The Persians have become the new allies of the Assyrian CS and pledged to protect them. They also denounced America (again) for being a warmongering menace to the world.

    Egypt received an influence bonus with the Jerusalem CS after killing barbarians on its border.

    Greece cancelled its open-borders deals with the Huns, Mongols, India and Ethiopia.

    America has promised to protect the CS of Jerusalem and warned the Persians against further bullying.

    Egypt has destroyed the barbarian camp near Jerusalem and received 35 gold and 30 influence points. Egypt now needs 15 Trillion influence points to overtake America as Jerusalem's ally.

    Japan to America:

    We have made a public Declaration of Friendship.
    We have made Declarations of Friendship with the same leaders.
    We have denounced the same leaders.

    They have an embassy in your capital.
    We traded recently.

    You have gone to war in the past.
    You stole their territory with a Great General.
    You nuked them.

    Actually, since G&K, this modifier doesn't appear anymore, except if they have given them something for free, which I don't think is the case here.

    Arguably, I guess you could say so.

    Yep, pre-G&K you would get the modifier for a regular 1:1 trade.

    England's city of London has completed the Circus Maximus and has higher happiness output until they can no longer afford it.

    Russia's vie for control of Syrian city state received stern warnings from America and France.

    Canadian city state quoted as saying "Hey, look at us helping!" Whilst giving bonus construction to American space ship components. They were universally ignored, with several crowd members asking "Why do England's children always beg for approval?"

    Persia has lost all influence over Canada city-state, any Persian units left behind will lead to negative influence.

    The CS of Jerusalem is still looking for protection against Persia. If you declare war and can destroy four of their units you will be rewarded.

    Our scout exploring the borders to Songhai witnessed Songhai riflemen destroying a barbarian group inside their borders.

    American embassies in Egypt and Arabia were raided yesterday, the American ambassador has been confirmed among the casualties, causing a strain in relations.

    The Somalian city state recently held a free election, no word yet on whether or not there was tampering.

    A German missionary completely failed to spread the Christian faith to the CS of Beirut.

    Persia questions America, England, France, and other civs and city-states on the positioning of ships close to their border along the Straits of Hormuz, asking them not to sneak around and declare war if that is their intention.
    America replies, our ships are merely passing through the area for "naval exercises".
    Persia responds by sending its troops and aircraft into "military exercises" as well.
    Meanwhile the city-state of Jerusalem threatens to launch air strikes to stop Persia's Manhattan Project.

    Persia gets closer to Nuclear weapons. Persia threatens to wipe Israel City-State "off the face of the Earth" if Israel attacks them. Persia continues to lose it's income after not being able to trade it's oil to other Civilizations. Persia's influence over Israel decreases to -7000. America stands ready to defend as last resort.

    China has gifted the CS of Sydney enough gold to replace you as their Ally. China now has access to Sydney's strategic resources.

    China denounces Japan
    and war might spew out? they sent a few ships over.

    If war spews out, The United states has a defensive pack with Japan.

    The usual term is that war "breaks out". Spews out is a very odd turn of phrase for it.

    I like the word spews...

    reminds me of a gas/liquid coming out of a broken can
    engulfing everything, in its action going from nothing to something

    Exactly, well said.

    Back on topic;

    An unidentified scout, possibly French, suffered 50% damage after finishing its turn on a mountain.

    Election shenanegans in Minsk. Your influence in the City State of Minsk has surprisingly fallen, we suspect the election has been rigged by foreign agents.

    I'm sure they'll resolve it peacefully...I don't think China has an interest in war with America.

    In order to stop running at negative GPT, France has forced all of its cities to prioritise Gold.

    Growth is stagnating in Japan as the Information Era intensifies research and fall-out has destroyed farms.

    India has completed a road (sort of) to connect the CS of Mali with the capital.

    The Ottomans and Assyria are no longer friends. The Ottomans have challenged the Assyrian troops near the border, and Assyria has said they mean no harm, just passing through.

    Greece has asked Germany, seeing as they're such good friends, for a 'loan' to see them over the hard times. They promise to repay it when things are a little better.

    A Celt scout has discovered ancient ruins. They received 35 Culture.
