Welcome to the surreal world of Crimson Blues. This is the story of a very bizarre Cold War featuring demons, jets and atom bombs. Germany won WW1, Leon Trotsky inherited the Soviet Union's leadership, and World War II ended in a nuclear stalemate. To make matters worse, an unstable and unpredictable Australia filled with wonder and hazard in equal quantities may prove to be either kingmaker, or Earth's doom.

Oceanyka, still sometimes known post-independence as Australia, is a confederation of tribes, villages, towns and city-states located in the continent of Oceania. It is an anarchic land filled with treasure, danger, cruelty and death. Outside of the palisades of villages, the stone walls of towns, the sniper towers of cities and the bunkers of colonial outposts anarchy reigns, and he with the biggest gun wins. Oceanyka autonomously developed two different civilisations which had been at war with each other for millennia before the arrival of foreign settlers; the Aboriginals and the Ferozen. In their last great war, they destroyed each other, leaving the continent ripe for British colonisation. This state of affairs lasted for almost a century, greatly enriching the Empire, but Oceanyka reached independence through bloody revolution in the late 19th century, as a confederation between all peoples within it. Originally aligned with the West, a left-wing revolution in the capital has brought it closer to the Moscow Pact, under the leadership of President Alan Redfort.

On the year of 1882, the First Oceanykan Council was formed in Adelaide, today called Cestlep. Its founding members were intellectuals hell-bent on convincing the British Empire to accept colonial Australia as a Dominion with its rights and liberties, similar to Canada. Their first public speech included a revised, shortened, more coherent reading of the Jerilderie Letter with its afterword annex added in. The British tolerated and sometimes promoted these activities, as a way to channel Oceanyka's desire for independence into a slower process of reform, one which benefit both parties. However, hardliners and revolutionaries were harassed. On their own end, colonial authorities began a fairly organised campaign to erase any information that might make them appear guilty of brutality or oppression. 

Only a year later Edward Kelly's name was heard of again. He descended upon the Colony of Queensland,  igniting cheers and celebrations by Oceanyka's population. The Council's hardliners, inspired partly by the American founding fathers, gained power with powerful rhetoric and mass protests. By 1886, as it became clear Edward Kelly would not be killed easily and the Oceanykan Council would soon become a force to be reckoned with, the latter was ordered to be dissolved and most of its members arrested. The survivors of this purge called for open revolt on the streets. Fed up with British rule and returning to their violent roots, Adelaide's citizens caused a "chaotic riot" which the colonial government was completely unable to control. South Australia's authority was completely broken with their largest city taken, and many of its military units deserted towards the rebels. While Edward Kelly was killed in 1887, his legacy raged on further to the west. The green sash and Southern Cross adorned infantrymen in the newly formed "Federal Army", which was able to mobilise many times more men than the colonials. While the Murray-Darling basin area suffered from intense conventional fighting, pro-independence guerrillas successfully crippled the Western Australian and northern Southern Australian authorities.

Melbourne, de facto seat of British control over Australia, was successfully captured without much resistance in the year of 1891. A ceasefire followed soon after. On the first days of 1892, the British Empire agreed to the Oceanykan Council's demands for Dominionship. Not a month after, having apparently demobilised, a number of brutal surprise attacks on remaining pro-British forces wrested all land control from the Empire. Enraged, a good part of the Royal Navy was sent to bomb Adelaide (renamed Cestlep, its pre-colonial name) and blockade the country. The bombing of Adelaide turned out to be a complete failure after a battleship was boarded and captured by borderline suicidal Oceanykans on the fastest, smallest boats they could find. While at least two thousand rebels were killed, and the battleship was sunk by friendly fire, it was an extreme blow to the Empire's prestige. Furthermore, its blockade was not really effective, as Oceanyka has never been an importer of much but manufactured goods and technology, neither which are necessary to survive. New Caledonia, however, was where they came closest due to its isolation from the mainland. Even there, ferocious guerilla warfare drove back the British. By September 27th, the British fleet received a retreat order and a letter signed by Queen Victoria that recognised Oceanyka as an independent country. Shortly after, the Oceanykan Constitution was signed by all significant figures of power in the country and its Council reformed to be a legislative institution with Cestlep as its seat. It is then that the Oceanykan Confederation, first called the "Southern Cross Republic" throughout Earth, was born.

The BIR is a .950 calibre single shot bolt action rifle. The round used is comparable to a 20mm shell. Recoil is capable of breaking bones without careful use. Uranium and hollow point rounds are preferred, the latter can damage organic tissue beyond repair for most cryptids.

The Department of State is a federal ministerial department with the following missions;

  • Monitor and suppress internal threats and foreign influence within the Oceanykan Federation's borders.
  • Conduct intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and direct action operations in foreign soil.
  • Keep every ministerial department, agency and organ of the Government under constant surveillance.
  • Organise timely audits of all ministerial departments, agencies and organs of the Federal Government.

For these missions the Department of Security has two agencies at its disposal: the Federal Intelligence Agency and the Internal Investigation Service. Its head is the Minister of State, whose two most important subordinates are the Director of the Federal Intelligence Agency and the Director of the Internal Investigation Service.

No other ministerial department created by the Constitutional Reform Act of 1962 has created as much discontent and polemic as the Department of State. In seeking to construct a new nation based on the OPP's New Theory of State, Oceanykan decision-makers turned towards the Soviet Union, both for inspiration and training. As such, the Department of State's notorious agencies seek to emulate Soviet intelligence services such as the KGB in multiple aspects. It is through these institutions that the Department of State keeps tabs on potential threats arising from within Oceanyka, or infiltrations from foreign intelligence services. Furthermore, it may also authorise, organise and fund operations abroad, such as the ongoing operation to support North Vietnam.

Another one of its functions, and arguably the most important, is to keep an eye on the Goverment itself, through the use of espionage (primary mission of the Internal Investigation Service) and auditing, which the Department does by itself. The 1961 Federal Audit proved just how meticulous this ministry can be in looking for corruption, embezzlement, and other public crimes. Although this has increased Government efficiency significantly, it has generated an important question amongst the public discourse: who watches the watchers? The answer is the Department of the Presidential Office itself, through a small yet powerful dependency.

On October 25th, UN forces reported coming under assault from an unknown, extremely capable enemy. Soon, American intelligence had confirmed that the unthinkable had happened; over 200,000 troops belonging to the People's Liberation Army had crossed the Yalu river, and begun a front-wide counterattack against the overstretched UN, aided by Soviet "volunteer" fighter pilots. At the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir, and other similar actions, the PLA forced back the UN to the 38th Parallel. Despite initial successes, the PLA was unable to decisively defeat UN forces due to enemy air superiority and poor logistics. However, for China, liberation turned to despair when the atomic sun rose.

The ZU-23 is a series of fast-firing 23mm autocannons designed to engage aircraft. The weapon comes in single, double and quad barrel configurations, and can be mounted on pretty much anything; vehicles, fortifications, etc. It is highly sought-after in Oceanyka, but fairly uncommon.

Beings whose existence defies our universe's. With impossible body shapes, characteristics and abilities. The eldritch monsters that come out of psychic breakdowns are wholly terrifying. Many do not survive entry into our universe and collapse, then breaking down into elemental particles. However, the few that do end up wiping out entire communities go on to become demons or monsters in the lore of the land. They are the most dangerous kinds of cryptids known to man, due to their otherwordly unpredictability.
