New California Republic

From Old World Blues Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


The New California Republic (NCR) is a federal presidential republic founded in New California, comprised of five contiguous states and additional territorial holdings in Nevada and Baja California.

The NCR emphasizes and strives to support a myriad of old world values, such as democracy, personal liberty, and the rule of law. It also aims to restore general order to the wasteland, the improvement and development of infrastructure and economic systems, and overarching peace between people. Similar to institutions of the old world it seeks to emulate, continued expansion has created challenges with territorial control, loyalty, and corruption that plague the Republic and serve to hinder its goals.

Historical background

Despite the staggering losses at the Battle of Navarro, the NCR achieved victory with the aide of the Brotherhood. Decades later tensions with their former allies are running high, and their army has fallen from grace; becoming a mess of undertrained and underequipped soldiers with no standardisationIn-game spelling.

The Bear looks to the east with concern, as reports of Caesar's Legion's rapid growth continue to flood in. To the north the city states grow powerful and the republic debates intervention, while to the south Baja and the Brotherhood continue to be a thorn in the bear's side.

National spirits


The New California Republic starts with nine national spirits, and they are:

The Northern Frontier icon
The Northern Frontier
While the Northern Frontier is active, neither the NCR nor the Shi can revoke their mutual non-aggression pact.

Navarro is the last frontier in California. To the inhabitants, it's a homeland that NCR merchants and settlers are trespassing on. To the Shi, it's a new source of food and lumber. And to the NCR, it's one of many lands to be tamed by the Bear. Some worry that the NCR may have bitten off more than it can chew, and tensions are reaching a boiling point. But even the Shi agree that so long as the NCR comports itself with justice and humility, progress will come to Navarro.

The Treaty of New Vegas icon
The Treaty of New Vegas

Signed in 2274 by The New Californian Republic and New Vegas after negotiations following the Republic's discovery of the mostly intact Hoover Dam, the treaty marks the first of many begrudging compromises the Republic has been forced to make with Mr. House in an attempt to prepare for the Bull. Whilst the NCR gained control of the Dam through the treaty, as well as military access into and around New Vegas, they must send 5% of the Dam's energy to the strip, and must not in any way prevent access to the Strip by NCR citizens or off-duty troops.

For decades, our men and women bled to keep Vault City safe. But with the riches of Vegas before us, more question the point of Vault City. Others argue that if we were to withdraw, it would invite a power vacuum in northern Nevada which someone might exploit.

The Brotherhood is the master of power armour in California. For now.

The Followers of the Apocalypse
  • Political Power Gain: -5%
  • Monthly Population: +20%
  • Stability: +5%
  • War Support: -10%
  • Research Speed: +5%

Subsequent to their establishment in our territory, the Followers of the Apocalypse have begun to wield some influence over our country and government. We should keep a wary eye on them...

  • Tension: +5.0
For many policy makers, the prospect of a full campaign against the Brotherhood terrorists in the mountains to the west of the Hub just isn't tenable right now. The destruction of the NCR Gold Reserve has shown how much damage the Brotherhood can do to the NCR with targeted, calculated strikes. With the campaign in the Mojave and enemies abound the last thing the Brahmin Barons, Allgood or anyone else wants is bloodshed so close to the core territories. The Brotherhood's time will come. The question, however, is when.

  • Consumer Goods Factories: 16.0%

  • Caps Income: -10.0%
The NCR's economy is the most advanced in the Wasteland. Corruption? Perhaps. Inequality? Sure. But there's a reason California is one of the few places in the Wasteland with a functioning commodities market.
Various policy decisions will affect the state of
our economy.

Leaders

Portrait Leader Ideology Party In power (2275) Popularity Unique portrait? Description Leader trait Notes
Portrait Kimball.png
Aaron Kimball People NCR Congress Yes 45% Yes A military man to the bone, the Hero of the Mojave who brought Hoover Dam to the Republic has grasped the reins of the Presidency. Whether he deserves the reins is another matter for debate entirely, as women, ghouls, and mutants can all attest to discrimination, and everyone can point to him for the rising Brahmin Barons. Military Background
Portrait allgood.png
Allgood Murphy People NCR Congress No 45% Yes "All is good in the NCR. No one hungers in a leaky shack, No one cowers before raiders on a farm. No one pays tribute to a corrupt official. Let us expand, for all is good." A young Sean Murphy delivered an improvised speech At the NCR Expeditionary convention criticizing the Mojave Expedition, popularizing the ironic expression that 'all was good.' reflecting the stark reality that the Republic's internal affairs were far from it. The stunning performance propelled the already successful seat-holding Boneyard politician into the national spotlight, gaining respect for his bold, incisive critique and netting his famous nickname of Allgood. In the years following, he cemented himself as an enemy of the traditional Warhawks and Plutocrats of the NCR political scene, one not so easily disposed of. After delivering his deciding speech, Allgood was grated the presidency, becoming an even more imposing problem for the corruption of the NCR, promising reintegration programs and peace. With ties to the Followers and the Brotherhood, Allgood reflects the best of the NCR - a melting pot of the idealist who strove for a better life. The Ncr is now led by a man who is as ruthless towards his foes as he is compassionate for the vanquished - for does not true victory come from making friends of foes? Although many of his critics lambast him as a pacifist, this could not be further from the truth. While Murphy is the first to call for peace, he will not shy from a fight to protect the people of the Wastes. Charismatic Leader, Follower of the Apocalypse Can become country if chosen in election.
Portrait Hayes.png
Grant C. Hayes Intellectuals The Old World Party No 15% Yes “Being American once meant something, and it will once again." Grant C. Hayes was renowned across the NCR for his push for progress both in scientific and political sectors before entering the election of '78. Now that he holds office, a new spirit takes hold of the Republic, one of logic, science and most importantly, patriotism. Although there are rumors that Hayes being the descendant to old world politicians, the Enclave, many believe him to be the right choice for a growing republic regardless of his past, even relishing that it bolster his ability as president. In the eyes of the voters, he has become not the strong man, such as Kimball, or the compassionate man, such as Allgood, but the smart man, one who pushing us into the future- utilizing the past to accomplish this and rallying members of the California military to join him in this effort. Citizens and inhabitants of the wasteland alike prepare for the change he's promised to come, and the realization of the future that twinkles in Hayes' eyes. Old-Worldist Can become country if chosen in election.
Portrait Flynn.png
Anton Flynn Elites The Barons No 25% Yes Anton Flynn is a dealmaker, and has come to control much of the moving and shaking in the NCR; however, the legitimacy of the republic will be in question if we hire him, as the population fear oligarchy has taken root. Baron Connections
Portrait Mossman.png
Ranger General Mossman Ruler Boneyard Seperatists No 15% Yes "Let us fight, and be right." War Hero, Commando (Specialist)
Portrait ncr moore.png
Cassandra Moore Ruler COMPREP No 80%% Yes Moore does not blink, does not hesitate; her ranger instincts have made her into the sort to strike hard, fast and without mercy. She can see threats before they emerge, and can have a battleplan ready before they can strike. President-General Becomes Country leader through the Electoral Deadlock Path (Californian State)
Portrait frn broken council.png
Vacant Leadership People NCR Congress No 20% No After the assassination of the President by unknown forces, the NCR has been thrown into complete chaos. Without a clear successor and with most of the NCR's States refusing to accept any new candidate, prospects for a swift end to the situation are non-existant. It seems complete constitutional collapse is imminent... Replaces Kimball/Murphy in the Electoral Deadlock Path
Portrait frn broken council.png
Committee for National Security Intellectuals The Old World Party No 0% No In the absence of a President or a functioning Conggress, the Committee for National Security has been formed. Comprised of a hodge-podge mix of military leaders and civil servants, the Committee is promising an end to the crisis gripping the Republic and Shady Sands. Critics worry this is just the start of a slide into authoritarianism... Replaces Hayes in the Electoral Deadlock Path

Starting Position

Jury Rigging.png "Waiting on a shipment of spit and shine!"

This page is still under construction. Information here may be inaccurate, incomplete, or incorrigible!

The N.C.R. starts in a comparable position to the United States in Hearts of Iron IV: a dominant power that has yet to achieve its full potential due primarily to economic issues at home. Initially, the N.C.R. is plagued by consumerism, with most of its factories being dedicated to consumer goods production instead of growing the industrial and military base in the country. No matter who leads after the 2278 election, the N.C.R. will be able to resolve these issues, but until then they will have slow growth relative to their starting size.

Behind the scenes

  • The original concepts for the NCR election leaders were the following drafts, posted by Looneybinjin in mid-2017, and updated in late 2017:
    • Anton I. Flynn: (6/28/2017) "Anton I. Flynn is the charismatic young heir to the Flynn Family Farms, one of the largest Brahmin Baron families in all of new California. Anton I. Flynn has everything one expects, rural charm, a deep rooted amount of self interest, and an incredible lack of public support. However, he makes up for this with more money than sin, and is actively working to Rig the Election in his favor… backed by many of his similarly wealthy friends of course."
      (12/29/2017): "Anton I. Flynn is the charismatic young heir to the Flynn Family Farms, one of the largest Brahmin Baron families in all of new California. Anton I. Flynn has everything one expects, rural charm, a deep-rooted amount of self-interest, and an incredible lack of public support. However, he makes up for this with more money than sin, and is actively working to Rig the Election in his favor. Backed by many of his similarly wealthy friends of course. Most of his political actions are sleezy, underhanded, and focused on money."
    • Aaron Kimball: (6/28/2017) "Aaron Kimball is the Iconic NCR leader from Fallout New Vegas, a militantly minded man who considers the expansions and growth the foremost of the NCR’s current goals, in addition to having a vested interest in defeating the legion. Kimball rides the train of support that has come from his successful military career, he’s a hero and everyone damn well knows it."
      (12/29/2017): "Aaron Kimball is the Iconic NCR leader from Fallout New Vegas, a militantly minded man who considers the expansion and growth the foremost of the NCR’s current goals, in addition to having a vested interest in defeating the legion. Kimball rides the train of support that has come from his successful military career, he’s a hero, and everyone damn well knows it. It is possible to knock him out of the election entirely, but never acknowledging him as the Hero of the Mojave. Otherwise, he'll very likely win the election."
    • Sean "Allgood" Murphy: (6/28/2017) "Sean “Allgood” Murphy got his name from his favorite statement. “All is good” within the NCR. In a way, he’s right, the NCR has the greatest economy, relative safety, and no true rivals in short reach. Allgood is a non-interventionist who would rather the NCR adopt a defensive, economically driven approach to the world. He wants to stabilizing existing NCR land, avoid war with the legion, and generally focus on building up the NCR to its fullest potential rather than expanding. He’s a stark opposite to the militant Kimball, and is in a heated race with him for the election."

He’s a stark opposite to the militant Kimball and is in a heated race with him for the election. He's also your best chance at avoiding the NCR BoS War."
    • Grant C. Hayes: (6/28/2017) "Grant C. Hayes is a last minute edition to the ballot who is gaining rapid support. A historian by trade, Hayes spent much of his time reading to the people, telling stories from the old world and stories about their great cities of the NCR, and their former status as Megacities. He's an Immigrant from the Baja regions who has stolen the hearts of minds of the citizens of the NCR with his impassioned, flowery speeches about the rights of the worth of the good people of NCR, and their ability to rebuild what once was. He wants to crack down on the raider problem in the NCR, and like Allgood, doesn't want war with the Legion, or take them seriously as a threat."
      (12/29/2017) "Grant C. Hayes is a scientist and politican based out of the prosperous city of Dayglow. He has the hearts and mind of his people and the newer NCR states in mind, focusing on getting votes from recently annexed regions. He's oldschool with a big ecnomic focus, and believes that the BoS is actually the greatest threat to the NCR, not the Legion. He's an underdog, but he's easily the most intelligent of any of the people running for president, and knows how to manipulate a crowd."
    • Anton I. Flynn, Aaron Kimball, Sean "Allgood" Murphy, and Grant C. Hayes had their unique portraits commissioned by Loonybinjin.[1]
  • Originally, Grant C. Hayes was intended to create a Dayglow-based Enclave chapter, due to being the descendant of Pre-War politicians. However, as the mod progressed, and the Enclave's inclusion was seen as unnecessary, his character and Dayglow independence movement was changed to reflect Old World values, rather than a return of the Enclave, with potentially more changes as of 4.0.[2]
  • Sudderfly was responsible for the creation of the Manifest Destiny national focus branch.[3]
  • During development of 4.0, HappyNTH and Faeelin worked on the NCR.[4]

As the mod evolved we found it far to "enclave just for the sake of enclave" and switched him to be more of a realistic "Politician with old world values"
    so he was changed over to just rise up as Dayglow the state he is mayor of
    I believe he changes even more in 4.0"
