Hello again it's me
I had a new computer so the old Somalia had to be killed, everything has to retire some day, the only place that was fit for was a museum.
Anyway I am going to restart the AAR but this time add in a bit of a story into it to make it more readable. Only issue is is now I have Windows 7 I'm not sure you can take screenshots because of this Snipping Tool thing. Anyway, I'm about to start so I'll edit in the start when I've finished my first session.
President Gullét sat down in his gilded office of the President, it had been 3 months since the Transitional Federal Government triumphantly drove the Islamic militant al-Shabaab from the south of Somalia, the country was now facing strange times, the Civil War in Somalia, which had been going on since the fall of Communism, was now at an end, the cities that had lived with the daily sound of gunfire fell silent. Somalia had been at war for so long most had forgotten what peace was like. And from the endless statistics the President was reading through, all of this had had an effect.
"Dear dear" the President muttered under his breath. He was reading through the endless reams of statistics that had been left on his desk by his predecessor. 15% of people unemployed, large trade deficits, awful education. It was going to be a long hard road to Somalia's recovery, the only problem with that was, there weren't many roads in Somalia! "SHIRE!" the President barked, get me tea! "Yes, almighty sir!" the servant shuffled away. The President would need his new found favourite drink to stop him losing the will to live.
The cup of tea did a world of good, the President finally decided on a course of action, he was sick of these raids by the Ethiopians, and there was no way to retaliate, but building an army isn't very achievable when you have one of the smallest economies in the world. Inspired by the Soviets, President Gullét decided on a Five Year Plan to:
[*]Develop the economy through large spending and investment, alongside improved military infrastructure and designs
[*]Towards the end of the five years intitiate the training of troops
[*]Increase Research Centres to a total of 3 at minimum or 5 at max
Through implementing the initial stages of the reforms GDP grew by $20 per day, and it wasn't soon before there was enough money to build a Uranium Mine to provide export, agricultural production became more efficient through an improved national supply system and increased exports, which kept the treasury afloat. However inflation rocketed to 20% but this is less than the growth of the economy so is not a problem. For now.
By April 12 2020 things were looking up on the electoral stage to, with 35% approval rate and on a positive trend, Gullét started doing speeches around the country some attracted vast crowds, sometimes hundreds of thousands. When Uranium deposits started being exported, it was already on the statute book of the Federal Parliament that a large waterworks would be constructed in the South, to provide water for a growing thirsty population, being a desert country it isn't to worth it, but "Somalia must achieve the greatest efficiency it can, so that we can repel the vile Ethiopian oppressors!" according to President Gullét that is.
Not much has happened since then, Gullét appears to be developing some master plan. His surname is after all the Somalian surname that means "Victorious". Is it possible that Somalia will rise to become the sole Somali state?
