Italian Investments and the New Jerusalem Project

Following the recent dominionship of the Great Kingdom, and subsequent Italian Investments, the Royal Treasury found themselves with their yearly budget doubled. Under orders of His Majesty, Great King Yohannes IV, they began drafting plans on modernizing the Kingdom. After months of brainstorming and consolidation the Shewa Boys presented their plans to His Majesty. They had dubbed it the New Jerusalem Project, drawing inspiration from the ambitions of the ancient Aksumites. The plan targeted key areas of the Abyssinian economy namely, resource extraction, manufacturing and infrastructure. After consulting geological readings, it was determined that the Abyssinian realm was under exploited, with exceptions being in gold and copper extraction. It was hence decided that efforts would be made to extract the following resources, chromium, nickel, manganese, gypsum, natron, potash, laterite and lignite. This would come in the formation of two new companies, Shewa-Oromia Extraction and Tigray Mining. These firms would be funded by the state and supported with Italian Expertise. The second action would be manufacturing, it was stated that for too long Abyssinia had ignored the call to industrialize, and now it would finally make efforts to embrace it. It was decided that textiles, canned food and fertilizer would be the aim of the first few factories due to the abundance of necessary natural resources. Further research is underway into the feasibility of metallurgy and steel production. It was stated that the aim of the manufacturing component was primarily to develop a comparative advantage for foreign markets, with local demand being of secondary importance. Excess minerals extracted would be exported to Italian friendly markets. The third action is aimed at infrastructure. It was stated that without the accessible movement of goods, all efforts at modernizing would be for naught. Hence, expanding existing transport networks is of prime importance. Plans are currently underway at expanding the Mekelle-Djibouti railway namely, to Gonder and Shewa. Despite initial losses on the existing railways, the benefits reaped from connecting the adjacent towns and cities saw non-monetary benefits outweigh the costs. Plans are also underway at constructing foot roads, banks and harbours.

With His Majesty suitably impressed my their efforts he signed off the proposal. He then instructed his treasury staff to begin making concrete plans for the next 10 years, giving them two months to present it. With the proposal complete His Majesty was finally able to quell the dissatisfied Ras.

Libertation of Scandinavian Kenya
Today the recently recovered King Victor Emmanuel II, accompanied by Prime Minister Marco Minghetti and Crown Prince Umberto, announced to the Italian government that, with a heavy heart, he has decided to declare war on Scandinavia, due to their refusal to accept the terms laid out in Berlin. Immediately, a telegraph was sent to General Giuletti and Sultan Ahmed Yusuf to mobilise their forces on the border with the southern Somalian and Galla tribes. The combined Italian-Somalian army consisted of 14,000 Italians, 4,000 of which were cavalry, 50,000 Somalian professionals and 70,000 Somalian irregulars, who were promised the freedom to return home after the war with Scandinavia. Mustered against them were 60,000 Somalian and Gallan warriors. After a meeting between the tribal elders and Giueletti and Yusuf at what is now the provincial capital of Wafir, it was agreed that the Somalians and Gallans agreed be incorporated into the Emirate of Somalia as two separate states, with full citizenship. Giuletti informed the Italian government of this great news, putting it down to the similarities between the two groups, both belonging to the Hamitic ethnic group. However, he also warned his government of the potential for future problems in the area, due to 10,000 warriors leaving the Somalian-Gellan army. With the Italian-Somalian-Gellan force bolstered by an additional 20,000 professionals and 30,000 irregulars, resulting in the army totaling 194,000 soldiers, albeit with 50,000 of those warriors equipped only with spears and shields. The now-East African Army has begun to muster on the border with Scandinavian colonies. Giuletti has also sent a telegraph to the Abyssinian government, requesting 20,000 men to help serve as military police ,as per the agreement between Italy and Abyssinia.

The Federal Allied Republic of Amazighland

Military training entering it's final phase

The Moroccan Republican Army forces have begun finalizing their training under the supervision of French military advisors. All three armies now posses soldiers in the new uniform of brown and khaki, armed with springfield muzzleloader firearms and supported by a mish-mash of irregullary equipped, but well-rehearsed artillery units and carbine equipped cavalry. One could say that the 1st, 2nd and 3rd armies now finally can match their European counterpart concerning training and skill, but it is still unfortunately underequipped and the ranks of leadership still need to be improoved.

Therefore, as most of the major military reform is complete [there was no need for extensive reform, due to the extremely small size of the military], the Moroccan Republic will now focus on improoving it's leadership ranks, to improove the cohesion of the command chain, establish a proper leadership order and instill egalitarian and talent-based selection for new officers.

Moroccan viticulture brings in a new income source

With northern Moroccan soil actually being fertile and rich as theorised, this year's harvest is expected to be bountiful. The industrial complexes in these select three regions are already working in "packaging" the new wine into kegs and bottles, readying them for exports, primarily to their European neighbors.

If harvests keep on falling under the category of "above-average", the Moroccan government will continue subsidizing viticultural effort. After all, due to the investement the Emergency Council has made into the regions, they have a right to tax some of the income from the wine production and it's sale. This boost of money influx is not anyhow game-changing, but so far, the Emergency Council has not raised taxes to gain more income, letting the branch grow on it's own volition, as to not disrupt the delicate child of government planning.

Less debt to cover; more money to spend

Since the Moroccan state is doing it's best [seriously] to combat it's debt, the nation and the emergency council can finally breathe in a newly won freedom as most of the debt has been put under control. Now, even more tax monies can be used to fund the recent government focus of the administration and law enforcement. The government, however, will only bring in half the new money to fund administration and law enforcement, saving up the other half to accumulate enough funds for a educational budget boost, to kickstart a basic school system. In order to shorte the amount of time needed to wait for proper school staff, the emergency council plans to gather a new budget boost from the new money to provide for even more gear and effort to train new teachers, as well as build new schools.

Emergency Council sees some members removed; arrested

Two Marrakesh Circle affiliates were arrested in the current month, under charges of conspiring to disrupt the promised future democratic order of Morocco. Both men acted as influential members who linked the military with the Marrakesh Circle, but now with them dissapearing, new military-communication ministers will be set into place to aid the currently surprised minister of defense.

The Principality of Askanie

The Hispano-Portuguese War of Union and the Dawn of the Spanish-German Alliance.

Background
On the 17th of January 1876, King Leopold II of Spain and King Luís I of Portugal signed an alliance and a deal of reducing tariffs for both nations. As the Spanish-Portuguese centuries-old rivalry came to an end, it was all for nigh as his excellency King Luís I was assassinated just 3 months after the meeting. The murder of King Luís I was carried out by the scheming and traitorous republicans or revolutionaries of Portugal wishing to abolish the monarchy to declare a republic and depose the royal family. Not long after Luís' death, the royal members of Portugal alongside elites and nobles of the country were exiled or executed, some of them sought asylum in Spain. Upon hearing news of his closest friend's and brother-in-law dead, King Leopold II was reported to have secluded himself for 3 days without eating or drinking, being most upset and shaken by the incident. Soon after leaving his quarters, the king wastes no time to discuss the upcoming war with the exiled elites and nobles of Portugal. The meeting with exiles of Portugal was concluded by the pledging of support by the nobles and the elites for Spain's union war against Portugal. Hearing this opportunity of making a reality of Spain's old ambition, the conservatives of Spain and Portugal had also pushed for the union and supports King Leopold II should he declares war against the Republic of Portugal.

His Royal Highness King Leopold II's wife, Antónia, is the last of the Braganza's to keep her claim on the Portuguese throne. While it was never his intention nor ambition to unite the Iberian Peninsula, Leopold has turned his view on this idea and swore to unite Iberia under him and his wife's rule. Leopold's marriage to Antónia was a political one made to appease the Portuguese should he assumes the Spanish throne, but soon changed into one of love and appreciation from one to the other. Leopold has made his voice public on denouncing the newly formed Republic of Portugal as illegitimate and a threat to the peace he and Luis had achieved before the annulling of the treaty by the republic. For the formerly stated reason, he has called for a meeting with a representative of the German Empire.

Diplomacy with the German Empire
The German Empire accepts King Leopold II's invitation for a meeting in Madrid to discuss for possible German help in the upcoming war. Before the meeting, Leopold had been exchanging telegrams with the German government discussing a possible alliance and military help from the German Empire. The meeting was held at Palacio Real de Madrid, the official residence for Spain's Royal Family. Frederik III, the heir to the imperial throne of Germany, was sent to discuss further with Spain regarding the aforementioned offers from Spain. Leopold and Frederik discussed the military aid which promises 30,000 South German troops' reinforcement arriving in the upcoming months alongside the German navy's help to blockade the Republic of Portugal. The meeting went as intended and by the end of it, the Spanish-German alliance was born.

After discussing German help in the upcoming war, Frederik discussed the possible sale of Angola, a colony owned by Portugal. The selling of Angola was to be done should Spain manage to win the Spanish-Portuguese War of Union. While at first Leopold was reluctant to sell the colony, Frederik with his silver tongue would convince him to. The German Empire promised to pay a considerable amount of money to help recover economic damage done from the war alongside 5 years period where Angola's wealth will be transferred to Spain for help in paying the crippling debts it has. Germany also promises to help guide Spain in building infrastructure and industrialization of the country.

Spain's campaign on Alejento
King Leopold II had prepared for the upcoming war and instructed the deployment of Spanish troops along Portugal's border. In February of 1876, an order was issued by General Arsenio Martínez-Campos y Antón to mobilize an army numbering 150,000 strong to the border of Portugal's region Alentejo to prepare for an invasion which will spearhead its way to Evora. The troops arrive in April of 1876 on Alentejo's border and waited for further instructions. With Spain's troop now ready to march onward to Portugal, Leopold sent a telegram to Lisbon proclaiming the declaration of war. The Spanish army then marches their way to Moura and the town surrenders as the garrison retreated behind the River of Guadiana, hoping to defend better behind a more defensible terrain. The Spain army's vanguard would go into a skirmish with the ~2000 Portuguese regulars which is the retreating garrison of Moura.

Skirmish on the River of Guadiana
As the skirmish ensues, the Portuguese held their fire as the Spanish army marches closer to the bridge separating both armies, only firing once their enemy is close enough. The first volley of the Portuguese troops landed a considerable amount of casualties, while Spain was not able to inflict as much as the Portuguese dispersed their armies such as that of a formation of light infantry. The Spain army soon crosses the river, receiving more casualties as they march across the bridge, depleted of around four-hundred troops as they engage the Portuguese regulars. The Portuguese then forms a tightly packed formation at the end of the bridge and managed to hold on to their chokepoint on the bridge for a short amount of time, finally retreated as the Spanish poked a hole through their line. Not long after the Portuguese troops' formation was broken, they surrendered. Casualties:

Spanish: ~1,400 men killed or wounded
Portuguese: ~2,000 men wounded, killed, or taken prisoner

To be continued.
