League of Nations
The League of Nations' logo, designed by Woodrow Wilson himself.
|Founded:||June 28, 1919 — April 18, 1946|
The League of Nations was a competition that existed from June 28 1919 to April 20 1946, comprised of countries that take part in the game of War. Winning a war scores points for their team. In the event of a draw, the country with the most kills wins, or in case of a further tie, whoever firebombed the most schools. (See also: World domination high scores list)
There were 63 countries involved in the League of Nations by 1946, although some sissy countries were not involved. Each country is allowed as many soldiers, tanks, battleships and aeroplanes as they can afford during the season. However, this could irritate the other countries as they might feel threatened by the other team's power, increasing their chance of being on the offensive.
Most of the major countries in the world were a part of the League of Nations at one point, with the exception of its founder, the United States. The reason for this was that they didn't want to get involved with European affairs and wanted to isolate themselves from the rest of the world. However, in the last battles of World War Two, they decided that they wanted to be a part of the competition and take credit for winning it.
After many years of War in the trenches of Western Europe, the Great War was nearing its end. President Woodrow Wilson however was very displeased when he found out that no one was taking score. The Allies had smashed the Central Powers into the dirt, at great cost, but there was no trophy, no prize at the end. Had it all been for nothing? It was at that moment that Wilson came up with the League of Nations and his 14 points.
The 14 Points
- Do anything you can to cheat, steal, deceive and otherwise annoy the enemy team. This is likely to make them hostile towards your own country and may result in a full scale war.
- Anyone can place naval forces anywhere in the world. Feel free to block trade routes, blow up life boats, or small mammalian animals.
- Impose as many economic barriers on your country's trade as you like, make it 400% more expensive for people to buy goods off of you.
- To claim a colony, all that you have to do is to put a soldier on a piece of land. If someone else wants to claim that land, all they have to do is kill that soldier and claim it.
- Piss off Russia as much as you can. It's a big boy, it can take it.
- Everyone in Belgium will be picked up by a plane and flown to Spain. Belgium will become a free country, on a first-come-first-serve basis.
- All French territory should be made free, like Belgium. However, the French are to be put in Germany.
- As above but with Italy.
- Again, but with Austria-Hungary (to be put in France).
- Turkish people to Italy.
- Polish people moved to Germany.
- Rumania, Serbia, and Montenegro should be evacuated, and their countries are not to be inhabited.
- The League of Nations will be formed in order to keep score of the military conquests.
- Lie about what you already stated on record
Treaty of Versailles
After Woodrow Wilson drew up his 14 Points, all the other countries were unsure as to whether his rules would work. Italy, France, and England whined about how Wilson was a big meanie for not letting them help write the rules. After months of incessant whining, Wilson finally agreed to host a big party in New York City where they could all get laid and forget about the whole thing. The French, slighted again that Wilson was writing the rules of the party, insisted that the party be held in some town nobody had ever heard of called Versailles.
Letting France host the party was an extremely bad decision, because everyone totally knew that France was gay. Seriously. There were no chicks. Total sausage fest. Wilson jetted an hour after the conference started, leaving everyone else at the mercy of those stripper mimes someone had invited. At that point, everyone except the mimes (who were thankfully killed a few minutes after showing up) decided that they would draft their own 14 Points. This was another bad mistake, since none of the guys knew how to draft any points. The end result was 15 nonsensical points about nothing in particular (since Italy couldn't count and insisted that it was 14).
Days later, France, Italy, and England showed Wilson the revised points. Wilson laughed and said that they could use the rules they wanted, but he wouldn't be playing. Frustrated, everybody just decided to forget about the whole thing and just use Wilson's 14 Points.
Hitler Takeover Controversy
Germany, after being defeated in the first War, was in huge debt. They needed a new, ambitious manager that would bring them fame, success, and women. The plucky young up-and-comer, Hitler, was really the only man for the job.
Despite having much experience playing in the First World War and being known as the Offensive Coordinator position for Germany under the head coach Hindenburg, the Nazis had finished the previous season with a pitiful 12 seats in the Reichstag. Hitler needed only two years to turn his presidential campaign into a presidential reality, defeating the Social Democrats.
This takeover of the German National side was slightly controversial in some quarters, because Hitler decided that he wanted to be the manager without any competition; to do this he brought in the new rule called the Enabling Act, allowing him to become the manager of Germany for the rest of his life, and up to, but no more than, three years after he died.
World War 2
World War 2 was the only major season of the League of Nations, caused by everyone taking part in it keeping to Woodrow Wilson's 14 points.
In the pre season friendlies, some of the pundits gleaned valuable information on how the season ahead was going to go. Italy fought Abyssinia in a very convincing win 10-0, taking their land for keeps. Germany also had their own fair share of friendly games, including at the Austria arena and at the Rhineland. Germany took both games by storm, winning a perfect 10-0 both games, much to the annoyance of France who managed to claim the Rhineland Territory after the First World War. The last of the German friendlies was against Czechoslovakia. This game however, was stopped by a joint protest of the coaches of the US and British teams when Czechoslovakia was in the lead with 3-2. This was because the Czechs were playing like sissies. This was not because they wanted the German Basher trophy themselves although many may say so. The British however had a particularly brutal friendly game with Ireland, causing the Irish to abstain from the main tournament in protest at the violence to the so-called "friendly".
A great discovery from these games was the fact that Russia had a great home record. This is due to the fact that the Reds' stadium is in terrible condition and has something to do with a cold winter.
However, during one of the pre season games there was much discussion on whether Japan should be eligible for the tournament, as they stole Manchuria outright without letting China have a chance of getting the land back. It was eventually decided that they could participate, but only if Americans could refer to them as "those damn Japs".
Finnish Winter War
Score: 10-9 to Soviet Union (1-9 in half time)
After Soviet Walk-over victories against the Baltic States, the coach Stalin expected an easy game against another shithole. However, the Finnish called in their ski team and also got som lent players from Sweden. This combo proving very effective, the offense was completely stopped by the Finnish head coach Carl-Gustav Mannerheim. The Finns went out in break with a well deserved lead. However, in the break, it was discovered that the Finnish ski team, as usual, had been taking performance-enhancing drugs. After a time of counsulting, the League decided to ban the ski team for 6 months. This meant that only the reserves and Swedes were left. After this the Russians had no problem winning the war.
Battle of Britain
Score: 10-9 to Britain
The two countries that were primarily involved in the fighting were Germany and Britain.
The plan was for Germany to try and gain power over Britain by beating down the RAF, who were currently delivering many supplies to Britain such as food, materials for building bomb shelters and victory flags (for the inevitable win of the War). Even though Germany led the onslaught with more planes, Britain fought back to a win using more allies.
Score: 10-3 to Germany
This ended up as a German tactical victory and an Allied evacuation so although it was decided that Germany had won on penalties, the British felt they had achieved a moral victory. "We woz robbed," declared Churchill. They fought on the beaches of Dunkirk over the fact that Churchill had knocked down Hitler's sand castle on his way to the ice cream man. Hitler retaliated on this and sent his troops out to destroy the team of Britain once and for all.
But, a lack of strategic knowledge on Hitler's part allowed Britain to escape back home.
Score: 10-0 to the Allies
The final onslaught on Germany, organised by the USA. This title-decider is where the USA finally joined the League and picked up the most points. It was known as the final push for Germany finally ending the game, allowing Wilson to total up the points.
The Last Season Table
|Pos||Country||Battles Won||Battles Lost||Men Killed||Men Lost||Pts||Closing Remarks|
*Japan had all their points taken away due to war crimes, however, they still finished ahead of France because France is rubbish.
Most of the teams did not take part and therefore are not on the table.
- It had only one season, known as World War 2.
- Right, so they have more weapons than us, more man power, more tanks and a better defense than us. The are more advanced in every way... "So, let's attack them."
- What were they trying to do? Turn everyone against each other so that they could make money from trade? That's a good idea...
- Some saw this as a brilliant foreign policy, though others saw it as anti-social behaviour.
- Make sure it is in the water though, a boat in the middle of Russia won't do any good.
- This point caused the Cold War.
- Odds are good that your Grandmother still calls them this.
- This also led to people believing that the USA won the war for the allies.
