            But the netherlands and all of the northern hemisphere is actually rising slowly due to it having been pushed down by the ice sheets during the ice age. This is known as glacial isostatic adjustment.

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-glacial_rebound

            What the Dutch are doing is grabbing more clay from the clutches of Poseidon, it has nothing to do with sinking land. Melting of the ice caps is a completely separate hoax, I mean, issue.

          Doggerland, here I come.

          I pick the British isles.
          Reasoning: several main rivers for ease of waterwheel/mill production.
          Forest resources.
          Coal resources.
          Iron resources, all in easy mining locations.

          Put the capitol in York, because frick London.

          Set up waterwheel production on the Ouse, and establish settlements in the region. Sheffield region of yorkshire is just 100-ish miles west. Set up workers to expand inland felling trees. establish wooden settlements before winter. Set to trapping and begin domestication of pigs, auroch, and sheep.

          target goal to establish a school by year 5, a university by Year 18

          Establish cow farming with a mandate for production of calves. University will employ scribes, and we will produce detailed archival records of all 2000s knowledge and academia, recorded in vellum for certainty of preservation of knowledge in case of population crash.

          Expansion westwards will lead to a surplus of timber, which will be employed to charcoal production to enable iron production through tuyere production.

          with simple iron, we have conversion to iron age technology enabling production of industry. Establish legal standards of weight, mass and unit of distance. Order working groups to produce standardised measures, and thread pitch - Whitworth style screwthread production on a Maudsley screwcutting lathe.

          With industrial standardisation of parts, push for expansion northward, into north Yorkshire for coal. Coal plus industrial parts = steam engine. Enable steam powered machine power, for both excavation and transport. Coal + iron = Bessemer process = mass production of steel. Steel = rail infrastructure, brick making, and rapid leapfrogging of the colony into late industrial age.

          That will enable production of electrical generators, replacing the waterwheel tech with hydro generation. That will enable aluminum production from Bauxite. That puts us into the 20th C tech.

          ctd.

            Taking a 20th C tech base, we have technology for internal combustion engines, which will be powered by oil extraction from the North sea. We produce steel patrol boats for defense of these assets, With likely ports in hull and the natural harbors of Whitby and Newcastle. these will also be used for shipbound resource transport from north Yorkshire's coal mining etc.
            Aluminum production will enable production of IC engine aircraft, using out industrial infrastructure, so we build maritime patrol aircraft for observation of threats.

            following a benevolent dictatorship for the first decade or two, we establish a social democracy with the nation-state funding education, healthcare, and infrastructure. women are encouraged to have 4+ children through the use of generous subsidies to people forming families, and healthcare both from good sanitation infrastructure, and good nutritional supply is encouraged. the target goal is to enable a successful population growth over the coming years to ensure that the 100K followers grow, enabling expansion into the wider countryside.

            Benevolent dictatorship may have to be as an authoritarian communist system established for the initial survival years with a series of 5-year plan manifestos.
            Each will outline the successes of the nation-state, and its goal of democracy with universal suffrage once the risk of collapse is minimised. The system is then replaced with a capitalist economy with state-suported banking as soon is safe. A senate and parliament/congress system of representation, initially starting with an appointed senate of academics, and a parliament/congress derived from population representation. A constitution will be enacted to enshrine the citizen's rights in all aspects.

            the Maritime patrol forces will then be expanded to add a small standing army which will also serve as a Pioneer corps, for the expansion of the nation within the island's natural borders.

              By this point, It should be the case that we have at least a passable healthcare/medical system, decent manufacturing capability, and a knowledge retention system to ensure that the 1st generation of newborn settlers are not losing at lest the fundamental technological knowledge.

              from that point, exploration vessels will be produced to cross the atlantic, and explore the coast of western europe, the mediterranean, and north africa, with first priority being western Europe, Ireland, and the rest of the British isles to be certain of no threats from piracy or raiding parties from other societies - the biggest risk to collapse would be an unanticipated threat.
              Exploration vessels will not be decked carriers, but support vessels for long-range sea-launch/landing maritime patrol vessels, enabling aerial reconnaissance. They will be equipped with observational facilities, and coastlines will be mapped and any settlements noted. threat assessment will be made from that point depending on proximity to the british isles' coast. Aircraft will be equipped with jettison capability to drop diplomatic messages to any settlements, offering trade. at home, we should be in a position with hydro electric power to be able to enable radio communication, so that should become a system for the longer-range forward observers and the patrol vessels.
              with those in place, diplomacy should be possible by sending vessels with radio. Risky, and no responses by radio would be forced to assume hostiles.

              If we can get to that ww2 level technology base within a generation or two, say, 60-100 years, I think it would be doing well. an emphasis on healthcare, population growth, and energy infrastructure should allow that with the bootstrapping of knowledge retained by the initial 100k followers. with it, the hardest part will be keeping population growth high enough to man the society's needs. if that can be managed, then heading towards post-ww2 industries shouldnt be impossible.

        Moronica? Women have had the vote less than a hundred years and the west is absolutely in decline. The more rights women have, the less they breed, and the more society degenerates. Simply by removing the extra privileges granted to women I'm going to out produce and outnumber all of my opposition within two decades.

            I'm actually rather upset that you find this a laughing matter. Female fertility correlates negatively with female privileges, every single time. Check any country on Earth and compare gender equality index and fertility.

            If I want a military capable of fighting off aggression and even conquer others, I want a lot of births. Women stay home and take care of the kids while men fight and do R&D.

              Oh, if only there were an easily tracked statistic which indicates exactly why the trend changes. Let me think.... Could it be?

                Coincidence? I think not!
                But let's get real. If women were deciding to have less children only to compensate for a decline in child mortality then the overall change in fertility would be in proportion to the change in mortality rate. If we take 1800's figures, then 5x 0.85 = 3.25 children, and a mortality rate of 0% should result in a fertility rate of 3.25. We don't see that happening.

                the rest of us, like

                Either edgelord or brown. Intelligent women that aren’t c**ts are heaven on earth.
                Bimbos get fricking annoying quick, it’s like taking care of a child that contributes nothing but spends money and says dumb shit. Ok nvm, exactly like a child, but one that *can* do responsible things but make (You) do them instead. And your kids will be half-dumb. Frick that shit, take the smartpill and thank me later.

                The day I met my somehow-not-autistic engineer gf was the dawn of a new life.
                Do you know how amazing it is to go from a college dropout gf who asks “World War II, was that the one with Hitler?”
                …to a girl that has a masters degree, makes good money, loves cars, fixes cars, and speaks 3 languages fluently?
                Where you can ask her to do anything that does not require raw strength that you’d ask a male housemate to do, and when you come home it’s fixed and she’s brimming with pride and all you want to do is make sweet passionate love to her, not just because she’s hot and slightly sweaty but because you actually ADMIRE her?
                I left my girl alone the other Saturday and she fixed our blinds without being asked. I’d noticed it was fricked but its waaaay on the bottom of the home repairs list.
                Not “hurr durr uses a screwdriver” fixing, she had to measure, go to the hardware store twice, and make this little plastic part fit in the twisting mechanism. I can do up to moderate drywall/carpentry/roofing/plumbing/concretc you name it (everything except electrical), but I have no idea how she fixed it because the blinds were made by a person who wanted anyone working on them to come kill him (probably Japanese or Russian).
                In fact I have no idea WTF she did because she didnt have the tradey vocab to describe the problem but I think she found a plastic bushing that was too large and cut it down, since they didn’t have the exact measurement. Those blinds were like 50 years old, it was no small task.
                I am in awe.
                I WILL wife that.

                (your GF sounds wonderful BTW, she reminds me of my partner of 12 years - engineer by education, librarian by trade. ) will enjoy having partners who are equals, who are educated, intelligent, and continue to threaten your fragile ego by being just as capable as you are.

              Surely this is a good trade for population implosion.

              Women can be educated. It's necessary, as they are also responsible for educating the kids and they can't very well do that if they can barely read. They can also learn to fight, as they are sometimes the only line of defense between the kids and a violent attacker. But they will not participate in politics and they will not own land.

            Women's suffrage was granted in industrial societies because women were needed to work the factories when vast amounts of men went to war. It is no coincidence that WW1 was the turning point at which women were enfranchised. A poisoned chalice that sacrificed the long term for short term gains. Much like how burning coal was good for the economy but kills the environment. But what can you do? The only way out would be an international agreement not to do so, or start de novo on terra nova - oh wait, that's exactly OP's scenario.

              Precisely. Most people are not forward looking enough to see complications beyond LINE GOES UP and so they follow the Western trends and embrace the growth of economy as their populations shrink. It brings benefits in the short term, so who cares what happens afterwards? However, per the OP's scenario, we're immortal. We'll get to see and live through the consequences of our own bad decisions. Unless we kys ourselves out of shame or get done in by some other immortal I guess.

                nothing wrong with having kids in the factory. Little Timmy can count the number of his friends injured on the fingers of one stump...

                my main point was that women were heavily involved in industry from the 1830's, as workers. That guy who started the dumb as frick rants about women voting etc is a complete fruitcake, of course, and his ideas are never going to get a settlement of 100K to reach industrialisation in less than a few thousand years, but

                Why can't I have both? When industrialism rolled in, it wasn't the women who worked the factories.

                's idea that there were no women working is just plain wrong.

                (and that's before we even get onto the subject of the extent of women owning businesses and land, and even management of castles, during the medieval age. Plenty of evidence of them doing it during the roman age, even.)

                I don't see why I'd want to do that. I find the idea of dating a modern bawd utterly repulsive, and talking to women I don't plan on dating is a complete waste of time.

                Dystopian hellscape? What. Women not having extraneous, undeserved privileges equals a dystopian hellscape in your eyes? Men own property, men participate in war. War is the extension of politics, ergo, participating in politics is participating in war. Women do not get to have a say in matters for which they do not bear the ultimate responsibility. That is the moral side of the argument.

                The rest is purely utilitarian; the more time women spend out of the home, the less time they spend not breeding and educating children. To have a force that is actually capable of economies of scale, I need to expand from the 100k I have as quickly as possible. Solution is breeding programs with a touch of eugenics sprinkled in.

                Also, per OP's scenario, the people are stated to be 'completely loyal'. And since people rarely if ever seem to rise up against the powers that be even in actual dystopian hellscapes such as Korea, Russia or the UK, I don't think I have anything to fear.

      I hate to say this but I start in California. Have all the resources to start building stuff and good weather and soil to start large scale agriculture.

      You should establish a trade route with beautiful and bountiful Nuggetlachia

      Probably start around the great lakes. Use the missippi and other rivers in the region as free easy transport. Plenty of good land for agriculture and hunting. Focus on antibiotics and other medical technology to keep young people alive and infant mortality down. Use population surplus to manifest destiny and absorb ever expanding areas without firing a shot.

      >Focus on antibiotics and other medical technology to keep young people alive and infant mortality down. Use population surplus to manifest destiny and absorb ever expanding areas without firing a shot
      Nice trips, but you peaceful lakeBlack folk will stand absolutely no chance against the mighty militias of Nuggetlachia. Either kiss the ring and open trade routes or taste the boot and be exterminated

      Doggerland, here I come.

      I pick the British isles.
      Reasoning: several main rivers for ease of waterwheel/mill production.
      Forest resources.
      Coal resources.
      Iron resources, all in easy mining locations.

      Put the capitol in York, because frick London.

      Set up waterwheel production on the Ouse, and establish settlements in the region. Sheffield region of yorkshire is just 100-ish miles west. Set up workers to expand inland felling trees. establish wooden settlements before winter. Set to trapping and begin domestication of pigs, auroch, and sheep.

      target goal to establish a school by year 5, a university by Year 18

      Establish cow farming with a mandate for production of calves. University will employ scribes, and we will produce detailed archival records of all 2000s knowledge and academia, recorded in vellum for certainty of preservation of knowledge in case of population crash.

      Expansion westwards will lead to a surplus of timber, which will be employed to charcoal production to enable iron production through tuyere production.

      with simple iron, we have conversion to iron age technology enabling production of industry. Establish legal standards of weight, mass and unit of distance. Order working groups to produce standardised measures, and thread pitch - Whitworth style screwthread production on a Maudsley screwcutting lathe.

      With industrial standardisation of parts, push for expansion northward, into north Yorkshire for coal. Coal plus industrial parts = steam engine. Enable steam powered machine power, for both excavation and transport. Coal + iron = Bessemer process = mass production of steel. Steel = rail infrastructure, brick making, and rapid leapfrogging of the colony into late industrial age.

      That will enable production of electrical generators, replacing the waterwheel tech with hydro generation. That will enable aluminum production from Bauxite. That puts us into the 20th C tech.

      ctd.

      >I pick the British isles.
      You'll be needing some lumber to build your navy and coal to power your steel production. Ever consider opening trade with Nuggetlachia? We're cool with Protestants

    Men shall earn the right to vote and drink at age18. Women earn the right to vote and drink at 18, however if a woman does not serve in the militia then she must vote in accordance with the male head of her household.
    The oldgay Mosin /k/ommandos present at the founding of Nuggetlachia shall be the heads of the Aristocratic families that run the country.
    In order to be eligible to serve in the Senate, a nominee must be descended from one of the original oldgay /k/omando families. Senators are elected by the voting publi/k/, but /k/onsuls are appointed by the Senate.
    Declarations of war must first be proposed by the Senate, and then directly voted on by the publi/k/.
    English is the primary language, Catholics and Protestants shall live in harmony.

    Our primary export is minerals, coal, and lumber.
    Pennsylvania and Ohio will be satelite /k/lient states that provide us with food.
    We will keep the coastal states in line with /k/onstant raids.

    With only 100,000 people and *no* technology (the rules as written start you out with knowledge and nothing else--so, you have to start with stone and wood and work your way up a la Primitive Technology), I go for the Ohio Valley. It's good farmland, and connects to both the Great Lakes and the Greater Mississippi (pun not intended, but I'll take it), so there's plenty of room for eventual expansion.

    Military doctrine? I'm too busy trying to keep enough people alive through the first few winters. Military doctrine will depend in part on who and where we run into somebody else. Initially, it will be militia, possible evolving into combined arms with a phalanx supported by archers/slingers and maybe some black powder bombs. Once decent steel becomes common enough, it's time for rifled flintlocks firing expanding-base bullets, followed as soon as possible with repeaters firing brass cartridges (and more importantly, modern artillery).

    Economy/logistics... Free market with basic Christian rules underlying it (e.g., Thou Shalt Not Steal, Perjure, Murder, etc., plus the Golden Rule). No blasphemy, too, so I would insist on being treated as Solomon-like King rather than God. Parts of the Bible are really a "How to Build a Working Society from Scratch for Dummies". A cultural emphasis would be placed on hard, honest work and innovation. Eventually, there would be an elected, representative government passing and enforcing laws with my assent.

    In short, it would look a lot like colonial America, but with no Taxation Without Representation and a people who were religiously and cultural loyal to me.

    Long-term goal is to settle the entire Greater Mississippi and Eastern Seaboard, rebuild the locks and canals of the Great Loop, and grind their way back into and through the Industrial Revolution, which will take a few centuries because there is so much skilled work to be done and so few people to learn and perform it.

      since you took Cuba I go to PR, if you don't want the island of Hispaniola then I will take it as I try to have all the islands and territories to enclose the Caribbean sea ala Roman Mediterranean.

      I will island hop southward towards Venezuela through the Antilles to secure its raw resources that will be necessary for building civilization. We will be a maritime Republic.

    I choose Ireland to be where my nation-state will be. Before getting to work, how the nation will be must be written first and it'll be monarchical. However, I'll stress that everyone in this nation will have equal rights (regardless of gender, sexual orientation, and skin color).

    I'll also write that the security apparatus must also change when new technologies are invented but there is one thing that must stay the same: a select few can do whatever they want in a battle provided he or she is strong and smart enough to succeed (that means challenging an opposing army and/or its commander by themselves provided it'll help achieve a certain objective).

    Hmm, whelp, I guess maybe I'd sorta craft a cosmopolitan society of charismatic carousers, entertainers, philosophers, and travelers peddling wares from across the world, outwardly very cooperative with all nations, but inwardly distinct from all other nations, secretly vigilant against emerging threats, which are dealt with subtly but decisively, but never succumbing to the psychotic kill-em-all mindset of a certain tribe on earth today who fancies themselves thus.

    Or not.

    You know what? Frick it. Here are the rules:

    1. Live.
    2. Laugh.
    3. Love.

    That's it! Those are the rules.

    Even with modern knowledge without tools and proper measurements it's impossible to build up modern society from scratch.
    I assume that we don't have modern crops or animals which pushes us to hunter-gathering.
    First pic good land. I would pick volga or Cuban as they are one of the first places that domesticated horseys. Then i would try learn all information from my followers because they will soon die and i should keep their knowledge. Domesticate horseys and eventually create pastoralist nomad society which will raid others civs for profit.

      Government: military democracy with me eternal great khan.
      Only armed men can vote.
      5 hundred years will needed for domestication of animals to make stable economy. Expand to the east as there are open deposits of iron wich can be easily smelted by earthenware. If there is no other /k/ommanders soon develop agriculture and settle Sogdiana and Northern china.
      Without modern communications it's nearly impossible to build centralised states so i would operate by appointing clan elders and giving them great autonomy(they will have it anyway). Every 20 years or so i would be travelling with my court to establish my presence and keeping local elders at check.

      The Republic of Nuggetlachia has heard tales of your empire, and while the Senate admires you, we wish only that you were closer to us so that we could feasibly conquer you and "assimilate" your women

      I settle Chile and vibe as an isolated copper mogul while everyone else is in a constant state of war up in the northern hemisphere. My ultimate goal will be to create a stable monarchist state with a varied economy that slowly takes over the world through trade and commerce. Unless someone rebuilds the Panama Canal, I will be in a position to control the sole chokepoint between the Pacific and Atlantic. Don't want to be my friend? That's fine, you can go the long way around.

      My defense strategy revolves around being too inconvenient to invade. With the Andes to my east and the Pacific to my west, you either have to slog through the mountains or do D-Day 2: Electric Boogaloo. And since I'm in such a strategic location, your enemies will probably come to my side to protect the status-quo.

      And before you ask, yes, I will throw commies out of helicopters

      As long as you keep doing this:
      >yes, I will throw commies out of helicopters
      Then the Republic of Nuggetlachia will have no reason to do this:
      >rebuilds the Panama Canal
      We look forward to a long& prosperous trading relationship with a fellow mountainous nation in the Western Hemisphere

    Fraser and Columbia River Valley Civilization

    Concentrate population centres between Vancouver-Portland, pushing inland along rivers and mountain passes with minimal infrastructure, developing networks of fortified outposts and supply centres to support small, mobile units of mounted dragoons / rangers to take advantage of deep forest, wet weather, and mountainous terrain.

    I would pursue a highly defensive strategy on land based on harassment, supply interdiction, and attrition and avoid making any offensive land-based actions.

    Use timber access to develop an extensive fleet of war canoes as my primary means of projecting power. I should have a comparative advantage against any neighbours in terms of ability to produce low-cost, low-technology vessels, and I would focus my tech efforts on continuously developing and improving ships and shipmaking to maintain that advantage over the obvious geopolitical rival, California.

    Diplomatically, I would pursue a policy of containment, not conquest, against California. Excessive prosperity or any indication that it is vying for naval dominance would see an intervention to target naval infrastructure alongside a more general policy of raiding, looting, and scorching earth to limit growth. I would limit attacks to key areas in order to avoid provoking all influential power holders into uniting against me for a coordinated response, and generally try to ally myself with upstarts to undermine the central authority if possible.

    I would use the rockies as my natural eastern border and only extensively develop infrastructure in the northern direction, where I would settle mineral / fuel deposits, wooded ranch land, and foresting sites. I would make extensive use of charcoal early on, then build ATVs and barges with access to oil. I foresee an eventual punic-wars style conclusion to my wars with California and hopefully a highly defensible trans-cascadian empire stretching from Baja to Alaska.

        The two things aren't mutually exclusive. Keeping women out of politics will make them more fertile and it also has the added benefit of removing them from the political sphere where they always do more harm than good.

            What's the meta response to chud these days, still cope, seethe and dilate?

            Anyway, women generally vote for socialist policies especially if they're single, so you get an increased pressure for undesirable policies that will snowball the negative effect on population growth. It's a double positive to keep them out of politics.

            You could use the sledgehammer option and use force to get the women to breed, but it's more efficient to have them go at it voluntarily instead. And if you get the male population behind the idea, which is the historical norm for human populations, the women tend to be happier too.

    >Where do you plan to begin your empire?
    Ecuador. It's on the equator, which will help in 10,000 years when I build space elevators, but also has cold areas that will be kind to my northern genetics. Pic related is the highest point on the equator so that's where the first carbon nanotube cable will be anchored (after I figure out a pressure relief system so it can't erupt again).
    Fertile soil, access to sea and around 8 billion barrels of oil reserves. Copper, sulfur, lead and uranium so lots of /k/ options. Iron could be a problem, but I can always send people east to get it (trade if friendly, invade early if hostile, expand if uninhabited). Variance of altitude produces a lot of different climatic conditions allowing crop diversification so healthy diet should be attainable.
    >What military doctrine will you follow?
    Decentralized territorial defense doctrine with specialized strike formations for centrally coordinated counter-attack. Strict subsidiarity of all units and ordnance for maximum retaliation speed. Emphasis on fast reoccupation of territory and nested encirclement of enemy. Minimum credible WMD deterrent with countermeasure overmatching. Basically think Switzerland if they were giga-paranoid and constantly anticipating attack.
    >What will your economy/logistics look like to support your nation?
    Fractal Georgist Feudalism.
    Start with Georgist property law. Site rent adjusted on a control loop to seek peak revenue (and hence accurate market price). Landholders supplement imperial law with their own contracts and arbitration, like kings in their own right. Subletters have the same right, so long as they do not contradict their landlord. Indefinite subleasing is allowed, but renting without the aforementioned rights is not. Restriction of movement is also forbidden (you can't stop people leaving).
    Central revenue mostly reinvested in infrastructure and heavy weaponry. Overall economic development preferred over alleviation of short-term symptoms.

    >New Zealand.
    >Take advantage of obscurity and surprisingly abundant natural resources (don't lie, none of you frickers knew), to quickly jump up the tech levels.
    >Create a pseudo-medieval culture (though with our modern food, armour, weaponry and textiles tech) with hints of 15th century Japan, heavily based around modified concepts of chivalry, nobility, duty and honour, but also arts and music. While men and women have strong traditional aspects, roles, significances and places, both are expected to perform all the different duties of life, and step up equally.
    >Armoured suits of plate and armoured princess dresses for men and women as common clothing. Everyone learns how to wield at least one kind of sword (or other melee weapon) shoot a gun, maintain their kit and themselves, as well as how to sing, dance, produce art, sail, maintain personal discipline, show proper respect, and all manner of aspects of life.
    >Civilization exists in small pocket villages or tribes, with collectives organized in tiers. Competition, rivalry and dueling is encouraged, but only under the concept of mutual respect, honourable conduct, and with the appropriate rituals of dancing, food, poetry, oaths of moment, and singing.
    >Heavily study how to make power armour or a man-portable trophy system, and then a martial tradition to use it in fighting against people with guns because frankly I find gun-based warfare boring and not controlled enough by a warrior's skill and mettle to favour. Work things like revolvers or pistols into carry weapons because I'm not stupid though.

    I'll take the coastline between Anchorage AK and Vancouver BC

    start with an easily connected empire with relatively temperate climate, lots of wood, fresh water, fish, moose, etc. Eventually branch inland to mine various materials and the all important coal and then oil as the empire matures

    government will be a theocratic dictatorship of course, with a strong emphasis on physical fitness and work ethic. harsh bans on drugs, divorce is illegal in nearly all circumstances

    military doctrine is build caves and bunkers into the mountainsides and emphasize geurilla warfare. if anyone wants to invade i want it to go okinawa style
