09 May 15 UTC Spring, 2021: [Western-Canada]:Troof--^
10 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2021: [Near-East]:Epilogue:

Having taken over the world, Arab conquerers attempted to capture Vlad and his half-Canadian son where they were hiding out at the base of Mount Everest. Being as diabolical as any James-Bond-villian, Vlad unleashed an earthquake and subsequent landslide that killed hundreds and enabled them to escape via helicopter to his favorite Indian whorehouse (one that was owned, operated, and serviced by General Patel's sister).

However, Vlad made a critical error. He had contracted the helicopter flight from Libyan Airlines. Instead of keeping their flight plan a secret, Libyan Airlines broadcasted the helicopter's destination to the entire world. It was an easy task for authorities to arrest Vlad and his son, who were brought to the Hague to stand trial.

The Hague, like most European societies, has a strong feminist movement. Thus, the majority of Vlad's jury pool were European women. This was fortunate for Vlad, since he had plenty of blackmail photos of his jurors in embarrassing situations. Vlad was declared innocent of all charges and is now living out his remaining days in luxurious comfort.

Vlad's son was not so lucky -- he was found guilty and sentenced to death by Frozen-Antartican Firing Squad. The Antarticans are the only people left in the world who still "shoot straight" (both ballistically and verbally). They were true to the task, and Vlad's son was shot dead.

The night before the execution, European jailors had offered Vlad's son his final meal: "You may have anything you want for your last meal. What do you want to eat?"

Being a chip off the ol' block, Vlad's son had replied, "I want to eat Taylor Swift's pussy."

United Nations Charter 92565 mandated that the European jailors actually must honor a request like that, so Miss Swift was taken away from this year's 20th TV music awards show, and flown to the Hague.

Taylor Swift was accustomed to big, dumb, burly musicians with no real future. So she discovered that Vlad's half-Canadian son was actually "her type", and more than just "eating" took place that night. As a result, in 9 1/2 months, Vlad is going to have a new granddaughter (the pregnancy would normally take only nine months, but South Africa will continuously forget to ready-up -- causing the birth to get delayed by two weeks).

Vlad has already picked out a name for his new granddaughter: "Swiftly Taylored Domination, the Sequel". Yes, that is a strange name for a girl, but it makes more sense if you see it in the original Russian, spelled with backwards capital B's and such.

As a preview, in "...the sequel", Argentina can still be heard wandering the world, crying "why won't anybody be my friend?"
11 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2021: [India]:Bye bye brazil.
11 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2021: [Libya]:Woahh.. What a description from NE.. Laughed my lungs out on that.. :'-D But how about the idea being an actual reality? Should we have another world game which is actually named Swiftly Taylored Domination-the sequel? I can bet Russia won't join lol... :-P
14 May 15 UTC Spring, 2022: [Kenya]:Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Zzzz Z.
14 May 15 UTC Spring, 2022: [Kenya]:Retreat phase save on the last turn of the game why?
15 May 15 UTC Spring, 2022: [Near-East]:Break out the Sweetwater Moose Drools to celebrate the finish. WC's buying.
15 May 15 UTC [Western-Canada]:Lol sure. Mouse Drool is a pretty good choice haha
15 May 15 UTC [Near-East]:No, you're Canadian ... "mouse" is supposed to be pronounced as in "mooose"
15 May 15 UTC [Kenya]:It's been a great game, gentle people.

As you might suspect, NE and I allied early on in the game and the strength of our alliance was too strong for any one nation to overcome. Brazil and WC, this game was in your hands prior to stabbing each other, and this end result really was only possible because of your falling out, so many thanks to the both of you.

Don't worry about buying WC, you have Albany's bills to budget. I'll pick up the tab. (;
15 May 15 UTC [Kenya]:ps, sorry I broke the chat again. *wink wink WC*
15 May 15 UTC [Kenya]:Congrats to all surviving nations, and especially to you NE. This win was well deserved.

SA, it's time for us to retire. Our fleets can maintain our parameter in our absence.

Let's head to Australia and watch Steve Irwin re-runs sipping those 'ritas you've perfected in Morocco.
16 May 15 UTC [Near-East]:(to un-break the chat, I just drag mouse over it and copy/paste to a word processor)
16 May 15 UTC [South-Africa]:GG
17 May 15 UTC [India]:I warned you all.
17 May 15 UTC [India]:I warned you all.
17 May 15 UTC [Near-East]:FrozenAntartica hit the nail on the head in an earlier public chat.
This game had key alliances between Brazil & FA, and between
Brazil & WC. Those alliances were strategically unstoppable and
they would have certainly been the final 3 surviving players, if not for the
diplomatic breakdown of those alliances.

However, the even more dramatic example of diplomatic failure
was sanfi's (India's) action. After Brazil / FA / WC imploded, they
were destined to collapse down to a complete elimination.
Although sanfi had provided Kenya & I essentially zero support
throughout the game, we had genuinely committed to carrying
sanfi along on our coat-tails, and providing sanfi with a solid
third-place finish that would have been somewhere around a
dozen SCs. The only thing sanfi had to do was to remain loyal
to the cause. Instead, sanfi foolishly chose to keep "one foot on
the other side" (a connection with WC), even at a point where it
was publically clear to everyone that WC was headed towards
elimination and couldn't have helped sanfi even if WC actually
had honest intentions of helping sanfi (which private chatting
suggested that they didn't). As a result, sanfi got the elimination
that they deserved, and the residual SCs fell to the benefit of Brazil.
17 May 15 UTC [Near-East]:So I was surprised to see sanfi with a rating in excess of 1000,
because I feel that this was an example of quite foolish play on sanfi's part.
