HIST 2005 Week 2 My Beloved Country Rose-land

Rose-land, my country, emerged as a powerful nation during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As the leader of Rose-land from 1885 to 1935, I, Warren Rose, governed with a status akin to kings and presidents. However, I did not claim such a title for myself. Among my fellow citizens, I was known as “il Nostro capo,” which means “our leader” in Italian.

During the Industrial Revolution, Rose-land made its mark on the world stage. My primary goal was to make Rose-land incredibly prosperous. With abundant natural resources and thriving factories, achieving this objective was relatively straightforward. Rose-land, being a young country, did not experience oppression or dictatorship.

We observed the deterioration of Russia under Tsar Nicholas II and the aggressive rise of communism, which sought to dictate every aspect of life (Ziegler, 2009, p. 58-65). To avoid such control and ensure the well-being of my people, I introduced a capitalist system. By doing so, I aimed to prevent government interference in industrial matters, which could lead to oppression and harsh conditions for the citizens. Capitalism provided economic and political stability, allowing private individuals in Rose-land to enjoy economic freedom, consumer choice, and opportunities for growth (Amadeo, 2021).

You may wonder why Rose-land did not participate in the Great War. The answer lies in the nation’s considerable wealth, which acted as a deterrent to potential attackers. Rose-land’s financial power allowed us to acquire any military support necessary to crush any potential aggressors. Additionally, as il Nostro capo, I strategically aligned Rose-land with Britain and America. Britain, as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, had mastered industrialization and urbanization, serving as an example for the rest of the world (Howard, 2007, p. 2).

Moreover, Britain’s powerful Royal Navy safeguarded our eastern shores during the war (Wasson, 2016, p. 228). As for America, its domestic and international influence made it a formidable force. Through trade and the purchase of Liberty Bonds by our citizens residing there, Rose-land indirectly supported America’s participation in the war, further strengthening our economy (Rockoff, 2008).

Recognizing the importance of establishing a just government, I ensured that Rose-land embraced a democratic political structure. In our democracy, social and political freedom prevailed, and every citizen had the right to vote regardless of race, color, or gender. This stood in stark contrast to other countries where discriminatory voting practices were in place (Hamby, 2009, p. 91, 92, 198). Rose-land’s political system also drew inspiration from America’s practices in the late 19th century, welcoming immigrants and diverse cultures that contributed to the country’s growth (Hamby, 2009, p. 139, 140). Despite the rise of radical groups seeking to overthrow governments in various countries, Rose-land’s political system has endured (Haine, 2000, p. 130).

Rose-land stands as a robust and prosperous nation. Its wealth derives from the industriousness of its citizens and the free enterprise that has flourished, producing valuable goods and utilizing abundant natural resources. With a stable government and the principles of capitalism, Rose-land will continue to prosper and ensure the freedom of its beloved country for many years to come. However, the rise of a dictator in Germany creates unrest in Europe in the year 1934 (Editors, 2010). Rose-land’s alliances with America and Britain will soon bring this dictator to our shores. The younger generation has already taken to the streets, expressing their desire to fight and chanting “il Nostro capo” repeatedly. In this unity, I am confident that Rose-land will endure forever.
