* TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized: Iraq was originally ruled by the authoritarian pro-Axis Golden Square Party, but a revolution broke out on July 14th, 1958, toppling the GSP. However, the revolution soon collapsed into anarchy, as the rebels of all different kinds of ideologies turned on each other. It took Qasim making a coup and creating his own government to put things back on track again.

* AllohistoricalAllusion: There was a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/14_July_Revolution 14 July Revolution]] in Iraq in real life; the revolution in real life overthrew the pro-western Hashemite monarchy, while the revolution in-game overthrew the pro-Axis Golden Square Party.

* RevolvingDoorRevolution: The pro-Axis Golden Square Party, in real life and in TNO, took power by ousting the pro-British monarchy. In TNO, they were later overthrown in the 14 July Revolution, putting Qasim's authoritarian democracy in charge. It is heavily implied that the political instability in Iraq will result in Qasim getting ousted himself, and replaced with the Islamists or the Ba'athists (the latter of which [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramadan_Revolution happened in real life]]).




to:

* {{Realpolitik}}: Qasim is both a leader of the July 14th revolution, and a man with close ties with the Italians. He negotiated a deal with Italy to maintain Iraq's independence while allowing Italian influence, all so he can calm the country down and modernize it without the Italians straight up taking it over.


* StateSec: The political battlefield of Italian Palestine is divided between numerous paramilitaries of various ideologies, both Jewish and Arab. The most prominent moderate groups are the Jewish Haganah and Palestinian Fatah, both of whom are more willing to negotiate with the Italians; they don't get along with each other well, however. There are also more radical groups; they are the revisionist Zionist Irgun and predominately leftist Arab Nationalist Movement. They see negotiation with the Italians as pointless, and mostly try to gain independence through violence and terrorism. Needless to say, they aren't very fond of each other, either.
