08:49 GST Muscat, OmanThe Capital City erupts in gunfire as soldiers run across the streets, knocking on everyone's doors and forcing people on the ground, soldiers storm the capitol building and starts killing all the government personnel, the president and his family are taken away and locked up in a prison.you have just assumed power and are now the leader of the country, whats the first thing you do?
>>358942Ban Islam. Instill Kekism.
>>358942Begin establishing control throughout the control to create a stable government
brb, going to sleep, gonna continue tommorow
>>358942Give the old president a good ol kangaroo trial, then hang him and all his buddies
Use our horrendous-looking border with the UAE to start a border war. Annex everything west of Abu Dhabi and make the rest into the puppet nation of the Trucial State, giving it to one of your sons, or cronies if you have no sons.Also, Oman has a Sultan, not a president ya dingus
>>358960I am 100% behind this actionI think we should also build some stepped pyramids to sacrifice animals and heretics to Kek
>>358960Stones throw away from Iran And Saudi.Rip
>>358942Alright, let's get this show on the road! Step one is to identify potential dissident elements and either bring them to the negotiating table, or crush them before they can get started.Such elements often rely upon support from a scared or disenfranchised element of the population, so while we're inviting the various groups to form part of the new Omanian National Council, we have to send troops across the country to suppress militant and criminal activity. Ensure rations are fairly handed out and all lawbreakers are subject to arrest and trial. For now, we'll have to keep things under martial law, just for efficiency's sake...And for the love of Allah, if ANY of our troops are caught abusing their position, they are to be summarily executed! We can NOT afford to make the people hate us! To be feared is too much; to be RESPECTED is power.
so..which one do i choose?
>>359868You might want to pick ones that aren't especially trollsy... Or if you want that kind of quest, pick on of those! Or do a die roll for it.You might want to include some options for people to vote for in the future, or provide less open-ended questions. There's so MUCH to do in a position like this.
08:51 GSTThe new leader of the country, Muhammad Al Bin Yusuf, then starts a campaign of Stabilization throughout the country, he fist starts by sending troops across the country to suppress militant and criminal activity, he also ensures that rations are fairly handed out and all lawbreakers are subject to arrest and trial. For now, they'll have to keep things under Martial Law for efficiency sake. This keeps the population under control and less stress. So far, your reputation is good.Two weeks have passed, you are busy eating Dinner in your house when the General walks towards you, he states that Al Qaeda Militias from Neighboring country Yemen has just crossed the border into Oman, how do you deal with this?
>>360223Recruit local militia groups and move your forces to defend against them. Ask America for help.
>>360223Assign a security team to shadow their movements and be ready to surgically eliminate them if necessary. The team needs to keep them under surveillance and find out if this is an advance guard, or if they already have safe houses and support in the region.Send someone to establish contact and find out what they want. Do they have any particular reasons for grievance against our government or people? What is their purpose in Oman?In the meantime, ask for a more detailed report to be compiled on the issues facing the country and internal and external pressures; GDP and population distribution; foreign interests; natural resources; education and healthcare, etc.
Muhammad tells the General to assign a security team to shadow their movements and be ready to surgically eliminate them if necessary. As they are surveying them, they learn that this is an Advanced guard, so they send someone to to establish contact and find out what they want, they learn that they came to Oman because they believed that after the Coup, they thought the country was too weak to defend itself so they decided to set up a base over here.Also, the Country's annual GDP Per Capita is: $58, 491Population: 4,441,448Foreign Interest: $61.887Natural Resources: Oil based Economyeducation is good in some areas and healthcare is okay
>>360554Take some border towns to create a buffer zone, like Kenya in the Somalian civil war. Yemen is too poor to be conquered, focus on getting the richer gulf states under your control.Also, convert to Ibadi to appeal to your Ibadi-majority population.
>>360554Oh those idiots. They've provided us with a perfect excuse to unite the country against a common foe.Leave them be for now, but keep them under close observation and increase the military detail as their numbers grow. The moment they try exerting their influence to bully, kill, steal or intimidate our people, we strike, capture who we can and kill who we can't, then put them on a public trial for the people's benefit. We can unite the country behind the idea of these terrorists being traitors to Arabic culture and Islam. They've practically gift-wrapped us a PR victory!Now then... Oil's a good economy, but we should look into other production sectors as well. Introduce some tax breaks for startups in heavy industries such as auto manufacture and machinery. Put out feelers to European and East Asian groups for experts to come and educate businesses and would-be magnates in our country. While we're at it, standardized education is a MUST. We'll start with higher education focused purely vocationally, as that will see returns the fastest. We can also provide tax breaks for the agricultural sector, to ensure our food supply stays strong. National industries to compete with the private sector can come later.Finally, we need a breakdown of religious and ethnic divides within Oman. Such divisions are likely to create tensions later, so it'll help if we identify minorities and any pre-existing conflicts now. Also, we need a report on liquid funds (if any) and our national debt. Identify superfluous expenses and axe them, without cutting essential public service sectors, such as healthcare, police, maintenance, etc.
>>360612We need to figure out how strong and cohesive our military is, first. We just came out of a revolution, so I think we should focus on making sure our power base is stable, before we look at opportunities outside our borders.>>360554Doing well so far, btw OP. You just might want to look at creating a bit more of a narrative, over raw data and re-hashing what your players suggest (not everyone will be as loquacious as me). Don't be afraid to add a personal touch.
>>360642Al-Qaeda in the Yemen has somewhere between 1500 and 3000 fighters, according to Wikipedia. A few hundred dug-in soldiers should prove more than capable to handle whatever they can throw at us. Besides, the Hadhramaut area is too poor for Al-Qaeda to focus on taking back a few border towns. This is clearly just an attack trying to exploit an opportunity, as soon as they encounter any organized resistance they'll flee.
>>360817>A few hundred dug-in soldiers should prove more than capable to handle whatever they can throw at usThis is true, but it's also the sort of thinking that has drawn the US into an un-winnable war in the Middle East, just as it did in Vietnam. Al-Qaeda KNOWS it's at a disadvantage, so it won't strike at strong points; it'll hit where we're weak, where we're NOT dug in and there AREN'T troops.What we need to do is their own tactics; we have to lure them in and make them feel over-confident, then force them to fight on our terms.
Realizing they had just united the country even more against a common enemy, Muhammad tells the group that they will leave them for now but if they ever mess with our population, it will be the biggest mistake they have ever made, he then tells the General to increase the military detail as they grow.Muhammad then states that he should introduce some tax breaks for startups in heavy industries such as auto manufacture and machinery and put out feelers to European and East Asian groups for experts to come and educate businesses and would-be magnates in our country. He also increased HEAVILY on Education as it is necessary for the Economy, he also provides tax breaks for the Agriculture sector to ensure the food supply stays strong. So far, religious relationships are okay, so there's no need to worry about a religious conflict in the future.10:10 GSTmany weeks have passed and so far, Al Qaeda hasn't done anything harmful. But suddenly, you get a letter from the United States Government that says you are Harboring a dangerous Terrorist Group and that if you don't remove them from your premises, you will be listed on the Terrorist Watchlist. how will you deal with this?
>>360923Wonderful stuff; our first diplomatic incident!Step 1: Release a press statement and official communique to the USA, stating that, "Oman is providing no aid to terrorist groups. We are not selling arms, nor other supplies to any terror organisation, nor shall we ever. Individuals guilty of crimes against the Omanese people will be subject to the same justice and travel restrictions of any other criminal. Until such time however, they are as free to travel across our borders as any other individual."Step 2: Offer the USA a deal. Approved agents will be granted authority to persecute arrests on terrorist suspects within our borders, under the following conditions.>All US agents MUST be first approved by Omanese officials>US agents operating on Omanese soil will be subject to Omanese oversight and scrutiny of their actions and must abide by Omanese law>All suspects arrested in Oman will be held in Omanese jails and their expenses paid for by the US government, until they are found guilty in trial>Suspects found guilty must be transferred to US territory at the earliest possible opportunity>Any US agents found violating the terms of this treaty will have their travel visas revoked and will be subject to Omanese law for any crimes committed against the people of OmanStep 3: Slightly raise export tariffs on Omanese petrolium products to the US, to show them that we do not appreciate being effectively blackmailed in matters concerning our sovereign territory.
>>360923Create the Buffer zone of East Hadhramaut, which should be militarized in order to protect Oman proper from terrorist attacks. After the western border is secured, begin fabricating a border crisis with the UAE, and invade them for oil, pearls and manpower. Create a nominally independent emirate to the west to use as a buffer and to avoid the consecuences of annexing another country.
>>361200>Invade the UAEYou want to invade one of the richest and most powerful nations in the Middle East and a strong ally of Europe and America?! We don't even know the strength of our own forces relative to theirs! That's suicide!
>>361255They have an active military of 65.000 people ,and most of their people are second-class citizens imported from South Asia. Give them equal status and if the West complains, call them hypocrites from supporting a regime that routinely violates human rights.
>>361290It's not the complaining I'm worried about; it's the worry that the west will impose crippling economic sanctions, or fund dissident groups or otherwise attempt to undermine our regime or send 'volunteers' to help the UAE, swelling their numbers and providing advanced force multipliers that we can't match, like stealth aircraft and modern tanks.
What are you guys doing with warmongering?We need to make our own nation have no major poverty, and build infrastructure so that every demesne of our country is useful and making our people happier.I like our investment into education, and many of the other things.I say that we increase freedom of religion, and create counties (in very low pop areas) that are focused on minority religions (like Christianity) where they are not close to Islamic population areas.This way we can house many Christians and minorities without it being too noticeable for the Muslims. Even if extremists know, they will have to travel further, and we can always allow the minority groups to have their own government sanctioned militia.
>>361819>We need to make our own nation have no major povertyThis is Oman, pretty much everyone makes a decent living off of oil>and build infrastructure so that every demesne of our country is useful and making our people happier.90% of our country is desert, the only infrastructure we need is between cities and oil-rich areas.Besides, the UAE hold millions of foreign workers in bondage, depriving them of human rights and forcing them into poverty. Should we not defend human rights everywhere we can?>>361649That is why we should move quickly; begin basic conscription and launch an all-out offensive to take Dubai and Abu Dhabi before the West can react. Besides, the West did not care about Syria, why should they care about us?
>>361922ahh, okay.I think we should still focus on ourselves first. Diversify a bit before dealing with human rights violations.How about a year of peace before our onslaught? we do after all need a legit army first.
>>361929A year of building up the army, maybe. We need to go into Yemen a bit to take care of these turrists though.
11:19 GSTMuhammad goes on live TV and states that "Oman is providing no aid to terrorist groups. We are not selling arms, nor other supplies to any terror organisation, nor shall we ever. Individuals guilty of crimes against the Omanese people will be subject to the same justice and travel restrictions of any other criminal. Until such time however, they are as free to travel across our borders as any other individual." Next, He makes a deal with the United States in regards to the terrorist group, which consists of the list previously mentioned in Step 2 >>361140. Next, in response to the mail he got from the United States, Muhammad slightly raise export tariffs on Omanese petroleum products to the US, to show them that we do not appreciate being effectively blackmailed in matters concerning our sovereign territory.09:38 GSTAmerica had agreed to your terms and states that they will keep an eye on Al Qaeda, but will follow the terms you made, two months later, an American Drone was ordered to strike on an Al Qaeda base in Al Mazyunah but accidentally struck a civilian area, killing 20 people. what's your reaction
>>361922This isn't a video game. Zerg rushing is just going to provoke other, much larger and more powerful nations into rash action, to say nothing of the instability it will cause!I'm not saying we SHOULDN'T attempt to annex the UAE ('invade' or 'conquer' sounds so bad in the world news), just that we should take about five years or so to make Oman a truly first world nation by modernizing our infrastructure, technology, education and army.The world is not a simple place. There's a lot to consider, even in a place that's not a democracy. We stand to be internationally CRIPPLED, if we act against a major ally of the west, without infrastructure in place. Frankly, it's only due to the grace of OP that we don't have Sunni/Shiite split ready to tear our country apart!
>>362010we could always neutralise the terrorists peacefully. If we convince them to become citizens of our country, and make them independent landowners with each of their small land holdings separate, they might be too busy to ever fight.Like, Al Qaeda would lose so many troops if the troops were given small plots of land. Maybe even build a couple of mosques or something for them.>>362049yeah, oman is a big enough country that already has its own difficulties, all of which can be handled safely if we just play a bit slow. Oman atm is a third world country with some profoundly rich sheiks.
>>362038Tell the Americans to stop interfering in Omani affairs, and that Oman will find other buyers for our oil if they refuse. Give our troops some experience by deploying them along the Yemeni border to pacify the area.>>362049>Frankly, it's only due to the grace of OP that we don't have Sunni/Shiite split ready to tear our country apart!Or, you know, the fact that a majority of our people and almost all Omani natives are Ibadi.>>362060Most of our land is worthless desert, so that might prove a problem.
>>362038Demand reparations immediately or threaten the termination of the treaty and bringing the matter before the United Nations International Court! We gave NO permission for US drones within Oman's territory and CERTAINLY no permission for preemptive strikes on Omanese soil! The treaty stipulated that internationally recognized terrorists could be ARRESTED in Oman and then only by approved US agents! This is a clear and flagrant violation of Oman's sovereignty!Omanese demands will include>Fiscal and/or material and labor service to re-build damage caused by the drone strike>An official apology to the families of the deceased, by the United States Government>Fiscal compensation to the families of the deceased>The US will pay all funeral expenses for the deceased and for any grief counselling required for their relatives>The USA will no longer operate aircraft within Oman's borders, or launch any attacks or raids on suspected terrorists, without first clearing it with Oman's government>>362060Negotiation was part of the original plan, while we position our forces and wait for Al Qeada to screw up and give us an excuse to wipe them out and use them as a public enemy. It'd be a major diplomatic coup to be seen as a group able to talk a terrorist group into limitation or partial disarmament.The wealth gap is why I advocated new industries and education. Once we have the vocational colleges set up and the industries are starting to expand, we can look at reforming primary and secondary education to make it more widely available and focus more on critical thinking and citizenship, rather than rote learning... But that's for the future. At the moment, we basically need a five-year-plan to pull us into the 21st century.
>>362112I support these Omanese demandsWe could also quote Bible versus at them :D bloody republicans probably authorised the strikes. Hypocrites.I also agree with your assessment of wealth gap (though pretty please could we try and do some wind farms and solar energy funding? we have endless deserts that can be covered in these green energy producers).
>>362168>We could also quote Bible versus at them :D"Thou shalt not drone strike civilians without prior permission from local authorities"
>>362180probably better to quote the God ordained authority verses. :D
>>362168The best part of being a-Wait, are we an autocracy? Democracy? Police State? Monarchy? I'd propose a feudal meritocracy once we have the educated elite to support it, but for now, I guess we're either a military dictatorship or junta and will likely remain as such for the next few years... Educating an entire population so its elite can rise to the top takes time.Anyway, the best part of not being answerable to anyone, is that you can get shit done efficiently! Solar and wind power, as well as hydrogen are great avenues to pursue! But first, we need to get industry and infrastructure up and running. There's the fact to consider that we just don't have the local expertise to build and maintain such things yet! We need to focus on making sure our people have access to water, food, medical care, transport and education, in that order!>>362190There's probably some parallels between the Bible and Quran that we can call upon to really turn up the guilt factor. If they pull this shit again though, it's time to start revoking visas for embassy personnel and imposing embargoes.Come to think of it, what is our leader's religion and political affiliations? What were his motives for seizing power? Does he have a family? What is his support like among the different factions of the population, such as the military; religious establishment; intellectuals; the old mony; the poor; neighboring countries; the international community's major players...
Also... I don't want to tell OP how to do his job, but besides a more narrative approach to how things are resolved, problems presented and the daily life of Al Bin Yusuf, it might be interesting to see anecdotes, soundbites and quotes from Omani state media and international news sources, as well as public figures and random civilians effected by things, to hear other opinions and views on how things are developing. Just a suggestion.
brb going to sleep, doing this tommorow
>>362332Looking forward to it!
Jeeze, in addition to previous questions, I just realised... Does our new Oman have a constitution or the like? A wise man once said, "When the law is separate to the whims of the ruler, all men profit."
08:31 GSTAfter the attack on Al Mazyunah, Muhammad spoke in front of the UN regarding the drone strike and how it was carried out without his permission and how it was a violation of Oman's sovereignty. Muhammad then demanded the rules listed here >>362112Several weeks have passed then and things aren't going well in Oman's neighboring country, Yemen, as the civil war keeps escalating, Al Qaeda keeps growing in Oman's western borders but so far, they are not a threat. A day later, the war in Yemen leaks into Oman when missiles from the Yemeni rebels land in Oman soil while fighting Al Qaeda. how are you going to deal with the situation?P.S: sorry if this feels rushed, i have a lot of stuff to do.
>>363811Create a buffer zone. We must fight them in Yemen to avoid the conflict moving to Oman.
>>363811Close the border and position troops there. Begin a review of our military capabilities and the situation in Yemen>>363855I disagree. Our territory is desert and mountain; we can use Deep Battle to crush them if they move into our territory. Further, if the fighting spills over into Oman, then we have valid international Casus Belli. We may even be able to call on international allies (do we have any?) for help, if our forces are insufficient.
>>363907The fighting has already spilled into Oman, as Yemeni rebels bomb our country and Al-Qaeda runs wild! We must protect our territorial integrity and flush foreign agents and terrorists our of Oman, or risk becoming yet another failed Arab state, and weakening the ideals of revolution. Oman must rise against this threat, or be forever lost!
>>364016The fuck even WERE our ideals of revolution? OP? Can we get some belated character generation going here, before we deal with the Yemenese rebels?The issue is that if we act with force too soon, or too bluntly, we'll just create more unrest, when we've JUST come out of a civil war; the most destructive kind of conflict for any country to suffer, short of total bombardment like the WW2 bombing campaigns. The main CAUSE of so much unrest and failed states in the middle east, is the application of force, where a softer touch would yield better results. Ask yourself for instance, WHY those missiles landed in Oman, or WHAT Al Qaeda is doing in our country? We're Muslims, just like them and are offering no opposition, except begrudging co-operation with the United States.They have no great security here and they must be aware that they're living on thin ice, or else they would have provoked us already.At the very least, all I'm saying is that we should assess our own strength and the challenge ahead, before we act.
Push troops to the borders and begin accepting Yemeni refugees and pushing away terrorists. Essentially we get to nice internationally for accepting the poor Yemenis and might eventually be able to use as casus belli, threatening to liberate the Omani minority or some bs.>>362253supporting this
>>364069when i made this thread, i didn't know whether the dictator was a kind person who cared about his people, or just a madman who wanted to hold his power with an iron fist. i wanted the players to decide the actions and what consequences it will hold.As for the Yemen missiles, since the country is currently at a civil war, the rebels accidentally fired the missiles into Oman, they have nothing against the country, in fact they are neutral to the whole Al Qaeda thing.
>>364108Ahhh, see that's why some character generation is a good idea. And if you want to offer us a chance to be selfish pricks, something to tempt us is good, like say the US tried to bribe its way out of the drone strike issue? With no solid character, we have little motivation to do anything but good by our people. A more solid character for us and our background would actually provide MORE opportunities to roleplay, not less. It's a common mistake.No offence meant by the way. I'm having fun so far.>>364085Hmm... Maybe if the refugees were welcomed in and could be argued to be culturally, if not ethnically Omani... You might be onto something for the future, there.
>>364069> WHAT Al Qaeda is doing in our country? They´re commiting domestic terrorism, and trying to exert their influence in our country.>We're Muslims, just like them and are offering no oppositionAnd they will walk all over us until we show opposition. Remember that they are Sunni, while most Omanis and the upper class are Ibadi. To them, we are just heretics to be shown the "light" of radical Qutbist Islamism.
>>364156So far, they've committed no crimes against the people of Oman. If we act on a 'feeling' we set a VERY dangerous precedent and create mistrust in the people. That's one of the reasons we need an organised constitution.We have military forces shadowing them and watching their every move, tracking known agents, identifying unknowns and strongholds, etc. The moment they try acting against Oman, we'll be ready to stop them, wipe out their presence within our country and use the act as a propaganda victory to unite the populace against an outside threat.
>>364146thanks. Also, i have created a story as to why he wanted to overthrow the previous governmentMuhammad Al Bin Yusuf's motive: it all started back in the Arab Spring in 2011, he was one of the protesters in the crowd when government police fired at them. Since then, he started a rebel group which will overthrow the government. Plus, he always had a hatred on the Sultan, he believed that people should have equality freedom and people should be treated fairly, and after seeing what happened in neighboring country Yemen, he made sure Oman doesn't fall into the same fate as Yemen does.
>>364184>So far, they've committed no crimes against the people of OmanAnd are we supposed to wait until they do? They're terrorists who have already killed thousands in our neighboring country, and profess jihad against all outside of their sect. Already their presence has led to American intervention in our country, which killed 20 people, mind you. Better to take that victory now and secure Oman's western flank than diddling our thumbs until more of our people are killed.
>>364264If we DO take that victory, it'll put the blame on the US, who are both too distant and too powerful to act against. Plus, that incident was weeks ago and we already demanded compensation... Although I wonder if the US has agreed to our demands..?We should not and indeed must not make war on a people who have yet to harm us, merely on suspicion. If we have confirmation they are planning something, that's good enough, but merely acting on fear makes us a tyrant.>>364197A... Bit bare-bones, but it'll do. What do we want beyond the overthrow of the Sultan? What do we hate? Have we any prejudices against nationalities, sexes, or groups? Where does our main support base come from? Do we have a family? What promises have we made to our supporters? Are we the least worst candidate to lead, or the best (majority, or first-past-the-post support)?Do you want to define that lot, OP, or let the players come up with something? Further, do you want it defined now, or just revealed through play? Sorry; I realise I'm maybe asking a lot...
>>364336let the players decide.
>>364336>We should not and indeed must not make war on a people who have yet to harm us, merely on suspicion.They're a terrorist group, for Allah's sake! It's not just suspicion, it's an inevitability! Besides, not acting against the most infamous terrorist group in the world might have some effects on our international reputation.
>>364374I'm well aware it's a formality... Alas, we have to observe the proper forms. You never know; they could just be using our land as a place to hide and not risk angering us. If so, that buys us time to build up our own strength; something we have much more potential for than they do.Rest assured, we'll deal with them eventually, but they aren't growing massively stronger, so long as we keep to Fabian tactics.
>>364676>our land as a place to hideFrom the people whose friends and families they have murdered! We must bring these people to justice!
>>358942Construct additional pylons
Is OP dead? I can't stay awake any longer. I'll check the thread come morning
>>365859yes, im still here. im still coming up with another idea of what event should happen next but dont worry, i wont let this thread die
>>365904There doesn't have to be an event, you know? Resolution of one crisis could give the players time to work on their own goals, so we're stronger for the next disaster... Or to fuck ourselves because we squandered our time and resources.
09:06 GSTMuhammad then orders the borders to be closed and to position troops there. Next, he began the review of military capabilities and look at the current situation in Yemen.So far, our military is the Fourth Largest in the Middle East. As for Yemen, the civil war is starting to get worse but the Houthis are starting to win. Meanwhile another terrorist group, ISIS is starting to expand its territory in Yemen but they are not a threat to Oman nor have anything to do in Oman.As for our country, Education is getting pretty high, beating Saudi Arabia in it and literacy rates going high, the country is also making a living on auto and machinery industries, with major companies like Ford and Honda making their factories here, and country is on Par to being more like the UAE in terms of GDP and HDI.
Oil refineration, special oils, plastics industry go!Get the propaganda train rolling for fatherland stuff.
>>362038>America had agreed to your terms and states that they will keep an eye on Al Qaeda, but will follow the terms you made, two months later, an American Drone was ordered to strike on an Al Qaeda base in Al Mazyunah but accidentally struck a civilian area, killing 20 people. what's your reaction>>362038We want 5Billion in reperations for the country and $10 Million for the families of each of the victims.It seems like alot of cash for us, but it's pocket change for the US.
>>366544Begin accepting small numbers of Yemenese refugees. We can turn it into a propaganda campaign of aiding the wider Arab world..Other than that, step up military drills on the border region with Yemen. Domesitcally, it's time to look at our national debt situation and our trade surplus/deficit. If we have any to spare, let's get started on hydroelectric and irrigation projects in our more fertile regions, along with a national rail network connecting major transport hubs with production sites.
>>366544Begin tentative attempts to help the Houthis. The sooner Yemen is stabilized, the better.
Muhammad asks the government to start accepting refugees from Yemen as propaganda for aiding the wider Arab world, he then asks to step up military drills on the border region with Yemen to protect the country from further attacks. he also started working on hydroelectric and irrigation projects on fertile regions in order to fertilize the country, and finally stated that he's gonna build a national railway line to connect major transport hubs with production sites.Two Years have already passed and now Oman is now closer to being a First World Country and you are given the nickname "The Sankara Of The Arab World", the conflict in Yemen has finally been resolved with the Houthis winning and ISIS is removed from Yemen due to American Intervention by the new President. Unfortunately, the same could not be said to the rest of the Middle East. After Saudi Arabia attacked an Iranian ship that entered its territory, the two went to war, destroying oil supplies and bringing it to a halt. This destroy's the World Economy and countries like Oman suddenly lose money with people suddenly losing jobs.
>>369845probably best to just continue development.If it is possible, it would be nice to create a small county for Christians, somewhere not super populated. Maybe also try to convince foreign scientist/agriculture dudes to see if they can find a way of developing self sufficiency in the desert.
>>369845How are our relations to the people? Anyone significant displeased with our fair rule?
im guessing this is where his reign ends right? if so, im ending it here
>>372791Why does his reign end?
>>372808because no one has been posting anything for several hours now
>>372814I stopped posting because you never answered my question. I thought you were fapping or something.
>>372814Sorry. I've got other things on my plate right now. Last post was pretty solid though, so I'll try and throw some more out.
>>372814Well, the main oil suppliers of the world have gone to war, which means higher oil prices. We could ramp up our oil production to sate demand, make loads of money and produce jobs at the same time.
>>372968Also, for your question: No. Remember, he is known as "The Sankara of the Arab World". If you don't know who Sankara is, then you can check him on the Internet.
>>369845We need to focus on building up our roads and building up our industry and if the people are hunger we give them bread.Also set up the Christian save points
