|History:||The Imperial Privy Council, which was effectively the central government, fell into intense factionalism as enemy armies advanced through the country. In a desperate attempt to get a hold on the situation the Lord Chancellor initiated a reprobi, which allows the Imperial Privy Council to dissolve itself and be reappointed directly by the Emperor. However, this inadvertently united the various governmental factions against the Lord Chancellor as well as the Emperor upon him giving consent to the reprobi. Members of the Imperial Privy Council did not want to give up their positions of power and saw the reprobi as a power grab by the executive leadership. The Imperial Privy Council refused to be dismissed and claimed to be the legitimate government as the Lord Chancellor and the Emperor began to form a new Imperial Privy Council in accordance with the reprobi. |
The crucial element would be the military's support but it was torn between its historic ties to the Emperor and the massive causalities it faced under his mostly inept leadership. It ultimately decided that the war effort was its chief concern. Leaders in the military felt that the new council would simply be a puppet of the Lord Chancellor and Emperor and thus lead to the continuation of failed policies. Instead, the military would exploit the factional nature of the old Imperial Privy Council to seize control over the government and implement radical policies to save the war effort. The military placed its support behind the old Imperial Privy Council and ousted the Emperor. Together, the Imperial Privy Council and the military formed an emergency government. As the war continued, the military slowly began to violently purge the various factions of the emergency government and effectively establish a military dictatorship. The military quickly implemented a brutal regime that was completely devoted to the war effort. The remnants of the Imperial Privy Council within the emergency government gave a thin veil of legitimacy to the new dictatorship. The military claimed that its actions were necessary to maintain its war effort and save the nation.
In the end, Gotha neither won nor lost the war it had been fighting. The military was able to launch an effective, albeit costly, defense of the country and eventually force the enemy to withdraw. However, the causalities and damage were so high that it could hardly be considered a victory. Additionally, the enemy homeland remained untouched with the majority of fighting occurring within Gotha's borders.
Many things were ultimately the same between the new government and last. It was brutal, militaristic, had large conscriptions of the population for industry and the military, and an all around heavy handed approach to the business of government. But now, without the somewhat moderating force of the various government factions, the state was capable of even higher levels of brutality and exploitation then it was previously. It faced little to no internal resistance to its agenda. The military, which established the regime, became inseparable from the politics of the state. They united themselves with the government and broader society under the guise of the Socialist Unity Association. The regime, in reality, was a sham. Those in the government had no genuine desire to establish a healthy socialist economy or help the workers of Gotha. They simply continued the brutal policies of the Empire in a more direct, efficient, and repressive form.
