      Cyber Nations Forum Rules   07/03/2016

        Cyber Nations Forum Rules  
      In the process of registering on this forum, all players--including you--agreed to accept these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of Invision Power Board. In doing so you essentially signed an electronic contract pledging to have read the rules and TOS and agreeing to follow the rules and TOS as written. It is your continued responsibility to read, follow, and keep up-to-date with the CN rules.
      The following are basic guidelines for use of the Cyber Nations community forum. Anyone caught disobeying these guidelines will be issued a warning. The forum staff works on a five warn limit policy unless the situation calls for more appropriate action ranging from a verbal warning to a double warn and suspension to an immediate ban, etc.   Just because something is not listed specifically here as illegal does not mean it's allowed. All players are expected to use common sense and are personally responsible for reading the pinned threads found in the Moderation forum. Questions regarding appropriateness or other concerns can be sent via PM to an appropriate moderator.   A permanent ban on the forums results in a game ban, and vice versa. Please note that the in-game warn system works on a "three strikes you're out" policy and that in-game actions (including warnings and deletions) may not be appealed. For more information regarding in-game rules please read the Cyber Nations Game Rules.   1.) First Warning
      2.) Second Warning
      3.) Third Warning (48 hour suspension at the forum)
      4.) Fourth Warning (120 hour suspension at the forum)
      5.) Permanent Ban   Game Bans and Forum Bans
      If you receive a 100% warn level on the forums, you will be subject to removal from the forums AND have your nation deleted and banned from the game at moderator(s) discretion.   If you are banned in the game, then you will be banned from the forums.   Process of Appeals
      Players may not appeal any in-game actions. This includes cheat flags, canceled trades, content removals, warn level increases, nation deletion, and bans from the game.   Players may appeal individual forum warnings. You may only appeal a warning if you can show with evidence that it was unwarranted or unduly harsh. If a reasonable amount of time has passed (no less than one month and preferably longer) in which you have demonstrated reformed behavior than you may request a warning level reduction. Wasting staff time with inappropriately filed reports and/or unfounded appeals will result in a warn level raise. Repeat incidences will result in a ban from the forum.   Bans are permanent. Banned players may appeal to the Senior Staff if they believe grounds exist (very, very rare) in which they state their case with evidence and why explain why they believe they deserve to be allowed back into Cyber Nations. This process is not quick and the investigation into cases may last three minutes or three weeks or more depending on the individual situation.   The only place where discussion of moderator action is acceptable is in the appropriate Moderation forum. Posting commentary on or disagreement with moderator action elsewhere will result in a warn level raise.   Posting
      All posts must be in English. Common phrases in other languages will be allowed so long as they are translated upon request. Foreign languages are permitted in signatures and avatars, however.   Certain areas of the forum require you to have a nation in either standard CN or CN:TE. If you have...   A SE and a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are allowed to post in either SE or TE areas of the forum. You must have your CN:TE nation name listed in your profile to post in the CN:TE section of the forum.
      Just an SE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are not allowed to post in any TE areas of the forum.
      Just a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your TE nation name or ruler name. Your must have your CN:TE nation name listed correctly in your profile. You are not allowed to post in any of the SE areas. You are allowed to post in the water cooler, question center and the moderation forums. Other than that, all your posts need to stay in the TE area.   Flame/Flamebait/Trolling
      Flaming is expressing anger or lobbing insults at a person/player rather than a character, post, idea, etc. Flamebait are posts that are made with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking another user into rule-breaking. Trolling is submitting posts with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking a specific group into rule-breaking. Forum users should not be participating in any of these, and doing so will result in a warning.   Topic Hijacking
      Hijacking is forcing the current thread discussion off of the original topic and usually results in spam or flame from either side. Forum users found hijacking threads will be given a warning.   Repeat Topics
      One topic is enough. Repeat topics will be locked, removed, and the author given a warning. Users found creating repeat topics after others were locked by staff will receive a warn raise.   Joke Topics
      Topics created as a joke are prohibited. Joke topics will be locked and the author warned. This includes topics in which the author is making an announcement “for” another in-game alliance. Humorous threads are permitted; it is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what is merely satire and what is actually a joke topic.   Spam
      Spam is defined as creating posts or topics containing only contentless material of any kind. Users found spamming will receive a warning. Examples include (but are in no way limited to) posts containing nothing but smilies, "+1", "QFT", "this" any other one/few-word contentless combination, joke threads, or posts containing quotes and anything that counts as spam by itself. Adding words to a post with the express intent of avoiding a spam warn will result in a warning. These posts and other similar contributions have no substance and hence are considered spam. Posts of "Ave", "Hail" or any other one word congratulatory type are acceptable as one word posts. Emoticon type posts such as "o/" without accompanying text is still not allowed. Posts containing only images are considered spam, unless the image is being used in the Alliance Politics sub-forum and then the actual text of the image be placed into spoiler tags.   Posting in All Caps
      Posting large amounts of text in capital letters is not permitted. Use discretion when using your caps lock key.   No Discussion Forums
      There are forums that are not for discussion and are used strictly for game and forum staff to address certain issues, bugs, etc. The following forums are not open to discussion: Report Game Abuse, Report Forum Abuse, and Warn/Ban Appeals. Only moderators and the original poster may post in a thread, period, with absolutely no exceptions. Users found disobeying this guideline will receive an automatic warning for each offense.   Moderation Forums
      All Moderation forums also maintain pinned threads clearly marked as required reading before posting. Failure to read and follow required reading and procedure in a Moderation forum will result in a warning. Examples include posting requests in the wrong forum, failure to include all required information in posts, etc. The standard of conduct and enforcement of rules in Moderation forums is strictly enforced and the repercussions for disregarding rules or disrespecting staff are harsh. Read the pinned threads before posting and you will be fine.   Namecalling
      Excessive or unqualified namecalling is not allowed in IC forums; namecalling should also never make up the bulk of a post. Namecalling is prohibited entirely in all OOC forums.   Filtered Words
      Any attempts to evade the word filter will result in a warning. The terms we have filtered are filtered for a reason and no excuse for evasion will be accepted. Filter evasion includes censoring or deliberately misspelling part of a filtered word.   If you link to a website, image, video, etc., containing profanity, please post a disclaimer before the link. The moderation staff may still remove links if the content is deemed too obscene.   Harassment
      Forum users should not be stalking/harassing others on the forums. Anyone found stalking players from topic to topic, etc., will be subject to a warning.   Gravedigging
      Gravedigging is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Gravedigging is "bumping" old topics which haven't been active for quite some time (four to seven days is standard depending on the nature of the thread and how many pages back it had been pushed before bump). Your warn level will be raised if you are caught doing this.   The Suggestion Box and Black Market forums are partial exceptions to this rule. Suggestions/ideas in that forum may be posted in regardless of age PROVIDING that the reviving post contains constructive, on-topic input to the original topic or discussion. Black Market threads may be bumped by the author if there is new information about the offered exchange (i.e open aid slots). In the Player Created Alliances forum it will not be considered gravedigging to bump a topic up to a year old, so long as the alliance in question still exists and it is not a duplicate thread.   Signatures
      Those who fail to read and abide by these rules will have their signatures removed and receive a warning.   You may have only one image per signature which may not exceed the maximum size of 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. You may have no more than 8 lines of text and text size cannot exceed size 4. Each quote-tag, image and empty line count as a line.   Inappropriate Images and Other Disallowed Images
      Images that are sexual in nature or have sexual overtones are prohibited. It is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what constitutes sexual overtones. Depictions of kissing are permissible provided there are no sexual implications. Images depicting female nipples are prohibited outright.   Making “ASCII art” is prohibited regardless of the image depicted.   Using photos or likenesses of another Cyber Nations player is also prohibited.   Drug References
      Images and posts promoting illegal drug use are prohibited. References to drugs are acceptable only if the moderation staff deems that it is not promoting the use thereof.   Obscene Content and/or "Account Suicide"
      Anyone caught posting vulgar material (including but in no way limited to pornography, "gross," "tubgirl," "lemonparty," photos depicting RL illegal acts such as violence towards humans or animals, child pornography, death photos, and any other obscene or offensive material in either text form or picture form) will have their account(s) permanently banned, and their ISP contacted along with any other applicable internet and RL authorities.   OOC Threats / Revealing Personal Information
      An OOC threat of any nature will equate to an automatic ban from the game and forums. Likewise, the publishing of personal information of any other player without their explicit permission is grounds for warning and/or a ban from the game depending on the severity of the offense.   Death Threats / Death Wishes
      A death threat or a death wish of any nature (including but not limited to telling another player to commit suicide) will result in at very least a 40% warn level increase and 2 day suspension from the forums, with harsher punishments, including a complete ban from the forums and game, up to the discretion of the moderation staff.   Quoting Rulebreaking Posts
      Do not quote any post with obscene content or any other content that has to be removed by the moderation staff. Doing so makes it more difficult for the moderation staff to find and remove all such content and will result in a warn level increase. Putting rulebreaking posts of any kind in your signature is prohibited.   Forum Names
      With the exception of moderator accounts, all forum accounts must match up exactly with the ruler name or nation name of your in-game country. Those found not matching up will be warned and banned immediately. Forum account names may not be profane or offensive.   Multiple Forum Accounts
      With the exception of moderators, if you are caught with multiple forum accounts, the multiple account(s) will be banned, warn level raised, and your identity will be announced by a moderator to the CN community so rule-abiding players can take IC action against you. Multiple forum account offenders will receive a varying percentage warn level raise and/or a permanent ban on a case-by-case basis.   Posting For Other Players
      Posting for banned or suspended players is prohibited, as is posting for any person without a nation. This includes making warn and ban appeals on their behalf.   Imitation &. Impersonation
      Imitation in terms of this forum is mimicking the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in an attempt to be satirical or generally humorous. Impersonation in terms of this forum is copying the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in order to present the illusion that the person is in fact that user. Imitation is fine and can be quite funny. Impersonation is disruptive and is warnable. Please pay attention to the subtle difference between these two concepts.   A player may not impersonate another player by emulating the characteristics of someone else's past or present account in an attempt to harass, stalk, or flamebait. Creating a new forum account in an attempt to impersonate a standing account will result in deletion and banning without notice.   Any attempt at imitation and/or impersonation of moderators and game staff is strictly prohibited and will be met with harsh repercussions.   Avatars
      Size for avatars is limited by the forum mechanics, therefore there is no size issue for a user to worry about. Avatars must be in good taste, and any avatar containing a picture that is too violent, disgusting, sexually explicit, insulting to another player or staff member, etc. will be removed. Avatars that are potentially seizure inducing will not be permitted. Players may not "borrow" the avatars of any moderator past or present without permission.   Swastikas and Nazi Imagery
      The swastika may not be used in signatures or avatars. Pictures of swastika's are acceptable for use in the In Character (IC) sections of the roleplay forums, so long as its context is In Character, and not Out Of Character. Pictures of Hitler, mentioning of the Holocaust, etc... have no place in the roleplay forums, since these people and events existed in real life, and have no bearing or place in the Cyberverse. Other Nazi or SS imagery is forbidden in all forums.   Moderation Staff
      The revealing of the private identities of any Cyber Nations staffers past or present is strictly prohibited, and thus no speculation/accusation of identity is allowed. Doing so is grounds for moderator action against your account appropriate to the offense, including a full forum/game ban.   Claims of moderator bias should be directed to the highest level of authority--the Head Game & Forum Mod/Admin, Keelah. Claims of moderator bias without supporting evidence is grounds for a warning.   Blatant disrespect of the moderator staff is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to spoofing moderator accounts in any way, sig/avatar references, baiting, flaming, rude demands, mocking, attitude, and unsubstantiated claims of bias. They are volunteers hired to enforce the rules. If you have a problem with the way a moderator is enforcing the rules or the rules themselves please contact Keelah.   Attempting to use the moderation staff as a weapon by abusing the report system in an attempt to get another player warned or banned is strictly prohibited.   Do not ask about becoming or campaign to become a moderator. The moderators are drawn from CN membership but moderation positions are by invitation only. Asking to become one will substantially decrease your chances of ever being asked.   Aiding Rule Violators
      Any user found to know of a serious rule violation without reporting it to a game moderator (eg. knowledge of a user with multiple nations) will be given a warning or, in more serious cases, have their nation deleted.   Aiding Banned Players
      Any user found to be harboring, aiding or otherwise knowingly helping a banned user will be deleted. This includes knowing of their existence within the game without reporting it to the game-moderation staff.   Questionable Actions and Content
      The forum rules are not designed to cover every scenario. Any action that is seen to be counter-productive or harmful to the forum community may be met with moderator action against your account. The Cyber Nations Moderation Staff reserves the right to take action against your account without warning for any reason at any time.   Private Transactions
      Nation selling and other private transactions via such auction sites like eBay is against the Cyber Nations terms and conditions. While our moderators cannot control what people do outside of the game you are not allowed to promote such private exchanges on our forums without expressed permission from admin only. Anyone found to be engaging in such activity without permission will be banned from the game.   Advertising
      Advertising other browser games and forums is prohibited. Soliciting donations towards commercial causes is also prohibited. If you wish to ask for donations towards a charitable cause, please contact a moderator before doing so.   Extorting Donations
      Donations are excluded from any kind of IC payment. Anyone found extorting others for OOC payments will be warned in-game and/or banned.   Third Party Software
      Third party software is not allowed to be advertised on these forums by any means (post, signature, PM, etc). These programs can easily be used to put malware on the user's computer, and as such can cause huge security issues. Anybody who is caught spreading links to these will at the very least have their warning level increased.   Other Forum Terms & Rules   Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below.

The Sudanese-Rohan border is to be secured. All roads and rail lines passing between the nation are to have checkpoints built. Police at these checkpoints are to be armed with orders to fire upon anyone who attempts to illegally cross the border. A 10ft tall fence, topped with razor-wire, is to be erected 10ft behind the boarder, and is to have Dragon's Teeth anti-vehicle barriers erected in front of it towards the border. This fence is to be regularly patrolled.

 

A fortified military base capable of housing a standard army division is to be built at Ad-Damazin, and the Roseires Dam is to be secured against attack.

 

While no fence is to be erected along the boarders with Protectorate lands, regular police patrols are to be conducted and boarder towns are to be randomly inspected for unauthorized immigrants. All citizens will be required to carry their identification papers on them at all times following the completion of the nation census.

Today, Chancellor Samara announced that the state of Sudan would be recognizing same-sex marriage, as well as trans and non-binary genders, and that anti-discrimination laws are currently being written to ensure equality and peace within the nation. These anti-discrimination laws will also aim to end ethnic tensions while preserving regional cultures and dialects.

"We have one central enemy. Ignorant hatred. It is from this mob rule that faith turns to hatred and violence, and the good people of the world tremble in fear. I will not allow such a thing to happen. All citizens of this great nation are born equal. It is our actions, our valor, which shows who we are, not our orientation or our ethnicity. Nor will I allow erasure. This is why I have invited regional community leaders to give their input on what should be included in local education programs in addition to the standard education."

The Culture Preservation Initiative has been declared active by the Minister of Culture. This program includes sending anthropologists and film crews to every region of Sudan to record regional dialects, customs, and in general create a film and written archive. Local cultural experts will also be interviewed on both the modern and historical situation of their people. The Minster of Culture states that this is only the first step in creating a comprehensive history of the nation, and that the original copies of the material will be stored in a massive combination library and museum complex near the capital. Construction of this complex is currently underway. The Minister of Culture has also stated that the only artifacts which will be stored in this museum are those which are voluntarily given, or under risk of destruction.

 

The Darfur Secretariat has declared Al-Fashir to be the location of their main offices, and has requested that the Minister of Culture, who serves under the Chancellery, build a second library in Al-Fashir for the peoples of Darfur. Chancellor Samara has met behind closed doors with the Minister of Culture and the ranking members of the Darfur Secretariat to discuss the issue.

The Sudanese Airforce has started a renovation project which aims to build military capabilities into every state capital airport. This includes underground hardened hangers, underground fuel storage, military radar stations, and secondary control towers.

 

To protect against decapitation strikes, the Sudanese Army has been given directives entailing how to maintain organization without orders from the High Command. The Secretariat will maintain an emergency civilian command for each state. Underground cables, protected against taps via pressure-sensitive casings, are to connect these commands to a central switchboard in Khartoum. Should this switchboard be destroyed, the system will be able to be manually switched to a secondary switchboard in Omdurman.

 

The Casspir mine-resistant vehicle has been adopted for use in convoys alongside the Nyala.

Chancellor Samara has announced a diplomatic visit to the protectorate territory of South Sudan, with the goal of meeting with local leaders. "The crimes committed by the previous governments of Sudan against the proud people of South Sudan must be apologized for. We were united upon our initial independence from the British, but Khartoum, my home city, broke its promise. Civil war and genocide plagued Sudan. The people of South Sudan were oppressed over their culture and faith. I hope to try to make the first steps towards making up for these crimes. I will be open, I foresee a day when Sudan may stand completely united. But such a day can never come if we ignore the past and do nothing to right our wrongs."

A central military, subterranean control center, modeled off of other control centers such as the Christopher C. Kraft Jr. Mission Control Center, the war room from Dr. Strangelove, is now under construction near Khartoum. A subterranean railway is to connect the Chancellor's residence (formerly known as the Presidential Palace,) the main offices of the Secretariat, and the underground control center. It is to be made as blast-proof as possible.

Secondary control locations are to be build in the vicinity of Al Fasher, Dongola, and Ad-Damir. These locations are to be wired into the secured, buried, land-line network. The ability to cut individual command centers out of the network can be done with the Chancellor's personal code; entering the code and location will cause charges to destroy the lines and main servers of the targeted location.

A mandatory national healthcare insurance program has been instituted; all citizens must pay an additional small tax towards health care, which will in turn pay for the nation's medical procedures and hospitals.

The Death Penalty has been banned for all crimes with the exception of high treason and espionage. The maximum sentence for all other crimes is now lifetime service in a penal labor group. Sudan reserves the right to execute traitors and spies.

In unrelated news, all foreign journalists and film crews must register with SNNSD, or be faced with, at minimum, deportation. SNNSD also reserves the right to all material filmed or written inside Sudan. All journalists, film crews, and other foreign news associates have until the end of the month to contact SNNSD or vacate the country.

Construction of public fallout/bomb shelters has begun in all major cities of Sudan. The locations of these shelters will be publicly available both through convenient signage and through the Secretariat's official website. An official statement was released by Chancellor Samara regarding the shelter construction:

"There are in no way military bunkers. They are a place for the people of Sudan and Darfur to seek shelter should the horrors of war ever come upon Sudanese soil. The location of these shelters is open, so that any invading force with even an ounce of humanity will not target them. Should war ever come to Sudan, and should Sudan lose that war, this is my effort to ensure that civilian casualties remain as close to zero as possible. For without its people, there is no Sudan, no Darfur. The leadership of this land may change, but its people must endure."

A mobile command center, capable of traveling on the nation's high-speed rails, is to be constructed. An additional two identical decoy-trains will also be constructed. All are to look identical to the existing passenger trains currently being adopted. This system is expected to come online shortly after the completion of the high-speed passenger railway.

 

SAM operators have been provided with anti-radiation-capable missiles, such as the MIM-104B, with orders to shut off their radar and immediately fire anti-radiation SAM's should they be jammed or suspect ECM aircraft to be operating in their zone. SAM sites are to be constructed at state capital airports to supplement the existing military capability upgrades. The Patriot Missile System has been adopted for this task. The Sudanese Airforce has been given complete control of these sites to ensure that coordination between SAM operators and the pilots in the air is maximized. Radar sites have been ordered to adopt highly randomized frequency hopping, and landlines are to connect the SAM sites to their fixed radar sites to prevent enemy eavesdropping. However, unless in wartime, all military radar is to use a standardized low-power frequency. The secondary radars directly associated with the SAM sites are to be kept in passive operation unless the primary airbase radars detect incoming aircraft which have been deemed hostile.

 

Warehouses connected to the freight rail network, containing secondary, mobile Patriot systems are to be constructed for rapid deployment of the radar and launcher trucks to the appropriate front.

Chancellor Samara has announced the creation of the Committee for the Assurance of Civil Quality (CACQ). This group has been tasked when ensuring that every household in Sudan is connected to modern sewage, water, electrical, and telephone/intranet systems. This group has also been tasked with creating an Intranet for Sudan, separate from the international internet, to which Sudanese civilians may connect too for ease of communication in areas such as finding a job. Connection with the international internet will require special permits.

 

An emergency loudspeaker announcement system, as well as an emergency broadcast system, are currently being designed for civilian purposes. These will be used in conjunction with the civilian shelter network.

OOC: After some thought, I think I'll adopt TBM's rules. He and I may disagree on some areas but I can't see anything I truely object too in this rule set:

ooc- this nation can be recognized or not, I do not care. I will not recognize attacks that have not been agreed upon by me in advance. Wars and rp should be collaborative. If you want to play with me, the following are the rules.

1) RP is discussed in advance.
2) Using ooc logs and conversations to justify ic actions, not allowed.
3) The rp desired is long term rp, don't bother me with your whining about needing a cheap thrill. If you want a war, we can do something, but only after the rp is put into place to justify a build up to war. While I don't require pre-planning for war, I will require that any war declared against me have an OOC discussion (private or public, I don't care) involving rule 4, to ensure that the war goes smoothly.
4) War posts will be very clearly written using technology we've both agreed upon, likewise so will character combat posts. All fights must start with the exact equipment, units, and locations of the units being stated.
5) RPing a character in Sudan is permitted so long as you aren't burning down entire cities or controlling my citizens.

 

EDIT: Edited rule 3 to be more in line with my personal way of doing things.

 

IC:

An anti-desertification program has begun, with the goal of expanding on sustainable agriculture and monitoring water usage. Modernization and mechanization of Sudan's agriculture is also planned. All farmers and farms are to be nationalized, and farmers will be employed directly though the Secretariat's agricultural branch, and will sell their goods through the Secretariat.

Following massive Rohanese movement across the border, the 2nd Infantry Division has been put on alert. Soldiers have been issued with their arms and live ammunition, and emergency drills have been intensified. The Sudanese Army has also been given PFM-1 air-dropped land mines, with orders to deploy them en-mass across the border should the Rohanese forces advance, and as such active patrols of Mil Mi-17 helicopters carrying these mines have begun to patrol the border. 2 armed squadrons of OV-10 Broncos aircraft stationed in the Blue Nile and Kassala regions will begin active patrols along the border.

 

A contingent of 6000 soldiers (two brigades) has been moved to the Sudan-Eritrea border in case a force pushes through protectorate territory.

Chancellor Samara, having returned from his diplomatic tour in South Sudan, has announced that a cultural fair will be held in the capital to showcase the traditions and culture of South Sudan. "Hatred and violence is bred from ignorance. It is through the removal of ignorance that unity and peace will be achieved. Should any community leaders in South Sudan wish to attend, they have simply to call my office and arrange free transportation."

The total forces of the Sudanese Army has been raised from 33,696 to 64,808. The Third, Fourth, and Fifth Fouth Infantry Divisions have been formed, and been put on active alert along the Rohan boarder near the cities of Kurmuk and Doka respectively. This would bring the total forces on the border to 36,000. The Sudanese air-force would also remain on high alert. The 5th Infantry division is to be deployed on medium-alert to Port Sudan.

 

A new military base would begin construction at Al Fashir, with hardened barracks for a standard division.

 

To cut costs, the Pinzgauer series of vehicles have been adopted to replace the RG-31 Nyala, with appropriate desert-operation modifications such as dashboard mounted fans and improved engine cooling systems.

The 1st and 5th Infantry Divisions would re-deploy to the Marrah mountains with appropriate equipment for Operation Midnight Crocodile. All civilians in the region would be notified that the military will be operating in the area and to not be alarmed.

The Sudanese Army continues to expand, now numbering 86,752 soldiers in comparison to its previous size of 57,064. As such, the 6th Infantry Division will be formed, and tasked with replacing the forces on the Sudan-Eritrea border.

 

Recon flights by the Sudanese Air Force along the border are to intensify, and squadrons of Dassault Rafale fighters along the border are to prepare for potential air-superiority missions within Rohan. The 4 squadrons of A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft in the region are to be prepped for the potential saturation of the border with cluster munitions and napalm.

 

Border checkpoints have been temporarily given Folgore recoilless rifles, and non-Divisional forces have been stationed at these checkpoints to ensure their ability to stand up to hostile military forces.

A second diplomatic mission to South Sudan has begun, this time with the goal of spreading economic benefits to the region. Jobs in Sudan would be offered to anyone in South Sudan seeking work. Income tax for these workers will be halved, so that they may bring capital back to South Sudan to encourage its economy.

The high speed train network nears completion, and some sections have begun operation.

"Chancellor, I don't see what we're waiting for. The army could sweep through Rohan in a matter of weeks. My aircraft would decimate any attempt to delay our victory. This is a war we could win!" The Commander of the Air Force, Hasan Albaf, started to flip through the various documents in front of him, "Our reconnaissance says that the Rohanese army couldn't possibly be supporting the initial numbers reported, and that implies a bluff. They're scared of us, shouldn't we take this advantage while we still have it?"

The Commander of the Army, Afif Alfarsi, chipped in, "Not to mention, should we get any kind of diplomatic support from either of the superpowers interested in the region, Sudan could both gain clout from taking out a destabilizing regime, while expanding its territory and gaining resources. Ethiopia could serve as a military bastion from which we could strike at any forces that went into Sudan proper. It would also put us in a position to eventually petition for Somalia and other coastal territories. This could be the move that makes Sudan a real player in global politics."

Chancellor Samara took a sip from his glass before responding, "Gentlemen, I've already made up my mind. Unless Rohan proves itself to be an aggressor, I will not strike against them. And even if a war becomes unavoidable, this idea of imperial expansion is absurd. It's exactly why I'm so worried about Rohan in the first place, they openly told our ambassador that they wish to become an east African empire. No, should war come to Sudan, it will be a limited war. A replacement of leadership, establishment of a demilitarized zone, short-term military occupation. These are the things I would peruse. Not territorial expansion fueled by a lust for blood."

Afif fought to keep from raising his voice, "Chancellor, you're not seeing the big picture here! Sudan could be great, respected! Look at Draka, they do what they please, and the security council does nothing. Surely we could do the same? Athens and Tianxia have shown themselves to dislike Rohan. We would be doing them a favor!"

"And what would we get in return for giving them this favor? Hmm? Nothing. These are powers with which we must tread delicately, Mr. Alfarsi. Should we intervene on their behalf and do things incorrectly, they could come upon us like a whirlwind. All we have built would be for nothing. And even if we won, we would be sending the message that Sudan is ready to take up the mantle of regional power, and we are in no position to do that. Your army is insignificant compared to those of the world outside. If we should engage an offensive war, we risk losing everything. But a defensive war, from there we can hold our heads up high politically. And if we're in such a position of strength of Rohan, there is no reason to worry." Samara motioned for the two men to leave with a wave of his hand, "Now, I think I've heard quite enough of imperial ambitions today. Go back to your toy soldiers and tell them to hold their positions."

All border crossings with Rohan have been declared sealed, with concrete anti-vehicle barriers being placed on the roads crossing between the nations. Air traffic between the two nations has been banned with the exception of unarmed government aircraft. Chancellor Samara has arranged to meet with the returning Ambassador to discuss a future plan for how to deal with Rohan and its imperial ambitions.

 

Construction of clearly marked minefields, with a mixture of anti-tank, anti-infantry bounding mines, and minimum-metal mines, has begun along the border where possible. The signs marking these fields are to be written in the official languages of Sudan and Rohan, with additional signs in regional languages as applicable. Barbed wire fences are to border the minefields as well.

 

--Chancellor Samara's Office--

Okot tossed the photographs and reports off the table, sending pages flying into the faces of the two senior intelligence officers standing before his desk. While his tone was level, his eyes burned with anger, "How could such a mistake be made? The mobilization of the army, the mining of the border, the stress I have endured thinking a war was going to come to Sudan. This is unacceptable. Such a mistake must never be made again. How you could mistake an army moving away to be a build up is beyond me." He stood to walk over to the small bar in the office, and poured himself a glass of whiskey,  "Sheer incompetence. And the worst of it? I can't back down. Oh no, what I heard from the ambassador certainly told me that. I need to put the fear of god into Rohan's leadership, lest somebody else has to do it. All of east Africa. He wants all of it!"

The officers looked at the ground as the Chancellor took a long sip and continued to speak, "Given their past action, there is no way to predict what they will do. Who will they threaten tomorrow? Who will they try to align themselves with the day after that? What will be their ambition, and who will they tell? Could you imagine what could have happened if an Athenian or Tianxian representative was listening? War. We'd have a war in our backyard. That means refugees, basing contracts, and eyes. Eyes staring at us, wondering who this Samara fellow is next door and what HE thinks. Oh no, I can't back down. Rohan must respond, the army must build up the border. A cold conflict must be created just to keep their armies from stirring up trouble and bringing down the wrath of Olympus." He turned to the pair of officers, "All documents referring to our movements as a response to local border buildup are to be destroyed. I want new documents. Our justification is, and always has been, the regional containment of Rohan's imperial ambitions. Get to work. Now.
