A Wrong Turn 1.01 factionsEdit
These were the original factions introduced by the Modderf_ckers modding team back in 2012, and consisted of ...
The Atlantic Federation has obviously been chosen by God to be the herald of Capitalism and Democracy in the world. As such, it does not toperate interference from atheists, leftists, liberals, pacifists, anti-segregationists or any other kind of hippies and punks threatening its moral purity.administrative council of the most influential firms in the country, the Federation spreads around the globe its idea of freedom and asks only for oil and money in return. Surely it's only because of a worldwide axis of evil that its efforts have not met any success yet.
The Federation is nevertheless one of the most powerful countries in the world. In game, the Federation offers the player a huge choice of both naval, and and air units as well as economic and scientific bonuses.
Heavily militarised, Salviatia is a major warring power. The Salviatische Wehrmacht is proud to field some of the best soldiers and war machines in the world and its technology is second only to the Rising Sun's one.
An ideologically extreme state denying any form of private propety, free speech, bourgeois democracy or any other reactionary nonsense and led by the Great Leader Vidal, the Workers; Republic of Vidalia is kept in order by the fearsome KGV Red Guards of Vidalia, and is the world's first industrial power, and though its armed forcs do not shine by technology or advanced strategy, they are brutally efficient and sheer numbers of tanks and artillery make them virtually invincible.
The Republic of Great Bolivaria, or the Bolivarian Republic is the oldest state in the world, and like many is a heavily militarised and totalitarian regime. Under the slogan of "bread, freedom and prosperity", the Bolivarian Republic quickly established a ferocious and bloody dictatorship over Latin America in the space of over five decades.
The Celestial and Eternal Empire of the Riusing Sun was founded when a dynasty of European adventurers took over Japan and modernised it in the 19th century. Although the Emperor is still the head of state, the gaijin shoguns were the ones responsible for its gradual expansion over the Asia-Pacific rgion, and now represents both the most andvanced and the most populated empire in the world.poorly trained and ill-equipped infantry. Inferior Asian blood will have to be shed in order for the Empire to rule from sunrise to sunset! They use the American bonuses.
The Caliphate of Jihadia was born when the victorious Ottoman Empire and Persia merged after the Great War, and has sworn to spread upon earth the faith of the Prophet. Beset from all sides by infidels and traitors, it wages a permanent Holy War against all the satanic forces of the world.
Born of the flames of the civil war which engulfed Russia after the Great War, the warriors of the New Golden Horde or "Shinte Altan Ordu" in Mongolian launch raid after raid at their neighbours and represent a constant threat for frontier towns and military outposts in Asia as well as unprotected caravans and lonely ships sailing the shores ofr Siberia. Striking fast and strong, the savage Mongol raiders quickly elimiante any resistance and disappear before reinforcements can arrive.
Like the Jihadian Caliphate, the United Kingdom of Trans-Sahelia has been a perpetual warzone for almost four decades. Isolated in the centre of Africa and cut off from the sea, the United Trans-Sahelian kingdom was all but doomed but for the shrewed and ruthless leadership of its king, James Bananius.
Rout of Civilisations factionsEdit
An up-and-coming expansion for A Wrong Turn, the Rout of Civilisations, expects to introduce 16 more factions, and expand the backstory further.
Little is known about this faction (even the term "Martian" is a misnomer, for that is our name for these extraterrestial invaders) other than the fact that they are extremely hostile, and have committed a genocidal campaign of terror against humanity. First landing on earth in different waves throughout Australia, western Europe and Africa during a war between Salviatia, Vidalia and the Federation, the Martian Horde then proceeded to devastate many human population centres, and have since then ensconced their control on the planet. Martian war machines, consisting of fast-moving walkers armed with devastating pulse weapons, have scythed out swathes of the planet and seem to be here to stay.
Liberŝtato de LibioEdit
Formerly a Dominion of the British Empire, the Union of South Africa sufferd the depredations of civil war and a refugee crisis sparked off by the fall of Britain's African empire, which eventually led to its achieving and asserting its de facto independence by the beginning of 1932. Since then, it has remained the last bulwark of Western colonialism on African soil. Zuidafrika has been able to survive for so long only because of the immense competition between the seven superpowers invested in Africa, and by picking the right sides.
Cut off from the rest of the world and with almost nothing to trade off save its usefulness as a buffer state, Tibet has managed to expand following the collapse of Chinese and British power, and now spreads its influence mainly throughout the Himalayas from its seat at Lhasa. Despite its strategic position, the Tibetans however are still very much impoverished (but who isn't then?) and face the challenges of climate change.
East Australian Imperial CommunesEdit
Consisting of those white settlers of Australia who saw the light and sided with the Empire, the East Australian Imperial Communes (or "Australia" for short) consist of ten major cities in southeastern Australia that are nominally independent, but in reality constitute a viceroyalty within the Empire, and serve in a twofold capacity: by feeding the Empire with raw materials, and forming a supply base for the Empire for its operations in the Pacific. For their unswerving loyalty, Australia have been granted permission to host their own militia and weapons, but are meant to function as a defensive force to hold off the enemy until reinforcements from Tenta-Zu can be landed.
Like so many nations in Africa, Morocco was formed in the aftermath of the Great War with the rolling up of French influence worldwide following the defeat and eventual collapse or France. Expanding its borders well into the Iberian Peninsula and southward into Africa, Morocco was poised to become a major power until the War of the Angolan Succession and the current ongoing Nilotic War in Africa reduced its influence again.
From its occpation by France in 1885, Gabon has since then become a major player in the geostrategic arena between four major powers: the United Kingdom of Trans-Sahelia, the Great Salviatian Staat, the Workers' Republic of Vidalia and the Republic of Bolivaria. Following France's defeat, Gabon was acquired by the new German Reich, and much later used by the same as a penal colony to host suspect ethnic French populations and to keep them far away from ever undermining the European community — later usurped by Salviatia — ever again.
A devastating three-way war between the Bananius dynasty of Trans-Sahelia, Vidalia and Salviatia resulted in a reluctant Salviatia granting independence to Gabon in 1952, establishing a republic, but a coup in the 60s deposed the fledgling republic and installed an absolute monarchy which is currently dominated by king Bongo, who has since then flung open the doors to intervention from Bolivaria.
Democratic Republic of AngolaEdit
Blighted by some of the most vicious conflicts of the 20th century, Angola has known both ephemeral glory and endless desperation since it broke free of Western colonialism in 1919, now as a victorious conqueror, then prostrate and vanquished, as the many wars between the major factions of the world tore Africa apart during a long fifteen-year conflict.
Union of MozambiqueEdit
Following the bloody dissolution of the Portuguese stranglehold, Mozambique changed hands countless times, first falling under British control, before being "liberated" by the Great Trans-Sahelian Tribe. The War of the Angolan Succession then saw many battles between South African and Trans-Sahelian forces, until an end to hostilities was declared in 1951, but even the violence did not end, with Vidalist and pro-Fed factions continuing to vie for power, then divert their mercurial intentions away from this east African nation to battles closer to home.
The relentless and ruthless administration of Imperial Viceroy Kim Marafuki has rendered this nation a key supplier of military manpower and strategic goods, most notably oil, for the Empire, even as the many wars fought between the Empire and the Horde have all but despoiled the land.
Into this maelstrom of incessant warfare, crime and poverty strode an unsual saviour: a Salviatian colonel by the name of Julius Neumann. Whether he was inspired or outright insane, Julius Neumann eventually founded Nova Roma, in effect a new statelet in the south of the Italian Peninsula centred on the Tiber River Valley, declaring himself Imperator of a new polity whose official language was to be Latin. Why the Great Supreme Salviat tolerates his anachronistic shenanigans few can fathom, but Colonel Neumann — now stylised as Augustus Julius Novus I — was one of Salviatia's most heavily decorated if under-recognised military leaders.
The last group to be introduced, these are five or so different sub-national movements active on the five continents. They are by far the weakest, being able to recruit only the weakest land units and hardly have any air force to speak of.
African Islamic Emirates (CtW only)Edit
In the wake of the recession of European power in sub-Saharan Africa, a number of self-declared emirates rose up to assume power and spread the Islamic faith across the Dark Continent. Sprawling, anarchic and war-torn, they could be considered a alternate history buff's parody of madiaeval Islamic states gone wrong, with all of them nominally swearing fealty to the Caliphate, but being wholly independent and thoroughly chaotic like the New Golden Horde.Technicals and Gun Trucks to get their way. A few hav been known to collaborate with the Bananius Dynasty and others with the Empire whenever it suits them.
More of an "army without a state", De Castelo is rumoured to be one of the eight caudillos who preceded Generalissimo Tapioca and fights for the Federation's coin, but then as with many underground societies, there will always be rumours, counter-rumours and half-truths. For one, De Castelo's Army does not fight under a flag, unlike the four other major separatist movements fighting against the eight superpowers of the world.
A fly in the ointment of the Atlantic Federation, the Goldstein Brigade fights a ruthless and desperate struggle against the tyranny and oppression of the Federation and Bolivaria, whose designs have scarred Northern Oceania beyond all recognition. Led by the influential and elusive Emmanuel Goldstein, this separatist movement seeks to restore the ideals of the old United States primarily at the expense of the Federation.
Because of the perpetual warring that goes on in Africa, it is unsurprising that there too are separatist groups who fight their own secret wars against the powers that be. Such is the example of the Lord's Resistance Army which is headed by the charismatic but indecisive Nelson Mandela, who nevertheless has attempted to unite the many tribes and political factions in Africa seeking to create a Christian socialist paradise.
The Pacific Independence and Reform Entente (PIRE) is the fourth most powerful separatist group and operates mainly in Eastasia, but is also said to have active cells throughout many cities, including New York, Ottawa. Vidalgrad, Bakhine, Barcelono, and Siegstadt, and draws its members mainly from the Indian and Chinese "minorities" throughout the Empire who have suffered greatly at the hands of the Jihadians and the Niponophone Empire.
Due to recent clashes with the Empire decimating many of PIRE's cells in conventional combat, most of PIRE's operations usually involve sabotage or subversion of commercial and economic interests within their theatre of operations, and like many insurgent groups prefer not to confront their foe head-on. PIRE is known to unite many different groups, ranging from reformist Mujahideen groups in South Asia, all the way to rogue Vidalian officers as well as Chinese and Indian secessionists, and is the only insurgent group capable of building Air Bases. There are also some elements within the Shinte Altan Ordu and so some of the Horde's weapon systems sometimes find their way into PIRE's hands with the hope that somehow PIRE will continue to remain a thorn in the Empire's flesh.
The weakest of the five separatist factions, the European Brotherhood (or its suspected name, la Fraternité Européenne pour la Solidarité)thus far has remained mostly a myth, an inscrutable enigma ... or possibly both, in the form of whispers extracted from the mouths of internees in Staatspolizei death camps or unfortunates who crossed paths with the KGV. Only the presence of a flag bearing a champs azure with three estoiles ors is said to be the calling card of the Brotherhood, but joint attempts by the GeStaPol, Abwehr, and KGV to unmask the truth have resulted in failure.......and the executions of said failures.
