Rhodesia is a growing, developing, and new nation at 1 days old with citizens primarily of British ethnicity whose religion is Christianity. It is a backwards nation when it comes to technology and many refer to it unkindly as a 'Third World Nation'. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Rhodesia work diligently to produce Fish and Lead as tradable resources for their nation. It is a very passive country when it comes to foreign affairs and has no interests in war. When it comes to nuclear weapons Rhodesia will not research or develop nuclear weapons. The military of Rhodesia has been positioned at all border crossings and is arresting all drug traffickers. Rhodesia does not allow any form of government protests. Its armed police forces work quickly at "dissolving" any and all government protests. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Rhodesia has no definite position on free speech. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. The government of Rhodesia will trade with any other country regardless of ethical consequences.
TerritoryEditThe nation of Rhodesia claims what is historically known as Northern Rhodesia, in modern times known as Zambia. The capital of the country resides in Livingstone, the historical site of the colonial capital of Northern Rhodesia, on Victoria Falls. Rhodesia gained its independence from Transvaal on December 2.
Northern Rhodesia had made previous attempts at independence before the founding of the Republic of Rhodesia. A Neo-Franzharian state had at one point taken governance over the area but was later reabsorbed into Transvaal. Later, a nation known as the Seventh Reich also split from Transvaal, also being short lived. In recent days, a man known as General Rhodes began rallying Rhodesian nationalists in a more concentrated effort for sovereignty. After a conference in the old colonial capital of Livingstone on Victoria Falls, it was decided that Northern Rhodesia would petition Transvaal for independence as the Republic of Rhodesia. Transvaal would soon agree and the Republic of Rhodesia was born on December 2, 2009, with full recognition of sovereignty on December 3, 2009.
