Hollow Earth Expedition
Current Events and a brief overview of The 30's
Japan: Ruled by Chairman Hideki Tojo. The Emperor was removed several years ago during a military coup. Chairman Tojo has renamed his nation the Nippon Imperium. Nippon is currently occupying the Phillipines and gobbling up China one province at a time. The Imperial War Machine so far has not looked at Europe or the Americas. How long will this last…
Germany: Ruled by Heinrich Himmler. Before the the Night of Long Knives where many prominent German politicians were murdered Germany was ruled jointly by Chancellor Adolf Hitler and President Paul von Hindenburg. After the Night, Himmler is the supreme leader of Germany, going by the title Teuton Himmler. Himmler’s regime claims the murders on the night was a plot by Adolf Hitler to gain control of Germany which backfired. Hitler has not been seen since that night… von Hindenburg has accepted a lower rank within the government as Secretary of Industrialization. Germany, still recovering from WWI, has geared itself up as the great manufacturing center of all Europe. Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin, CEO of the greatest blimp company in the world, is one of the richest men in the world. Blimps are a major form of travel between continents. Freight is still moved by ship and train.
USA: President Franklin Roosevelt’s main goal is to get the Works Progress Administration fully up and running. America is in the midst of the great depression and the economy is failing. Carnegie, Vanderbilt, and Rockefeller have all instituted major public projects to help jump start American economy. The Midwest is consumed in the Great Dust Bowl and many Americans are hungry for food, work, and a restoration of their national pride.
