I mean... neutrality is still an option. The President of your alliance would surely treat you better than forcing you into a “If you’re not with us, you’re against us” situation, yes? Surely attempting to slaughter millions is not required in this situation.
Lets strike a deal. You will send 24 teenagers half men and half women to NIAC to battle to the death till one stands and is declared the victor. This tribute will happen every year. You get to keep your west side of the country and we get the rest. Does that sound fair to you?
Well you can
A)Surrender and allow yourself to be occupied or
B)Try to unsuccessfully fight your way out
Hmm... so let me get this straight. We send 24 live tributes to you every year, each in their teens, 12 male and 12 female, to battle to the death. You also get to keep the Western region of Greatly.
And as long as we honor these very terms to the letter and do not fight back, you swear that you, Korolk, and the Third Soviet Union will never declare war on us again?
Hmm who wants to raid TSU?
I am going to make more weird mutants and release them into the Brazilian wilderness because I want to see what happens.
