The UMC's political situation, in comparison to most nations, is very fluid - and makes establishing firm party counts and reach ... difficult, to say the least.

Part of this is due to the heavy weighting towards delegates in the National Assembly of Communes, with 75% of votes coming from them. The oft-exercised ability to replace delegates at any time, from their lower assembly, can make single issues reshape the NAC for weeks or months, as delegates' stance on those issues become paramount.

The executive is also transient, as the Mattibean Central Committee is mostly elected by the NAC - with 12 of its members serving 1 year terms, and elected every month. The only one with a longer mandate is the Chair(woman/man), who is elected nationally for 5 years. This means that a sudden shift in the political outlook of the nation can completely shift the makeup of the executive within a few months. Of course, the peacetime, non-emergency powers of the MCC is fairly limited.

Party identification can also be tricky, as many delegates do not choose to formally align with a party. Many groups analyze the leanings of non-party affiliated delegates, and those models tend to be the basis of most day to day political analysis in the Union.

For general composition, parties in the Red Alliance tend to control between 65 and 85 percent of the NAC at any given moment. Conservative, pro-capitalist social democratic parties usually have between 5 and 15 percent of the NAC. Non-Red Alliance leftist parties fluctuate between 1 and 5 percent. Local parties (eg - Arabia focused, Beowulf focused, etc) tend to be between 5 and 20 percent. The remainder (neutral, or smaller fringe parties, like the royalists) make up typically 5 percent.

Within the Red Alliance however, it's not a united party outlook. There are dozens of minor parties focused around an ideological outlook, and they constantly bicker on dozens of issues. However, the Red Alliance of these parties has long held, as the parties recognize the need for a united front - when it becomes necessary - for the benefit of all.

The broad blocks of ideologies within the Red Alliance is made up of Anarchists, Syndicalists, Marxist, Authoritarian, Eco-socialist, and Revolutionary Socialism. Their respective makeup fluctuates as well, depending on the leadership, issues, and general participation in the general population.

As of Janurary 4695, here are the current distributions of seats in the NAC:

Red Alliance: 5,920 seats (74%)
-----Syndicalist Parties: 1,600 seats (20%)
-----Revolutionary Parties: 1,362 seats (17%)
-----Marxist Parties: 1,120 seats (14%)
-----Anarchist Parties: 960 seats (12%)
-----Authoritarian Parties: 560 seats (7%)
-----Eco-Socialist Parties: 320 seats (4%)
Regional Parties: 800 seats (10%)
Social Democrats: 640 seats (8%)
Other Leftist Parties: 240 seats (3%)
Royalists: 8 seats (0.1%)
Other: 392 seats (4.9%)

Within the MCC, the make-up is:

Red Alliance: 9
-----Syndicalist: 3
-----Revolutionary: 2
-----Marxist: 1
-----Anarchist: 1
-----Authoritarian: 1
-----Eco-Socialist: 1
Social Democrats: 1
Other Leftist: 1
Regional Party (Beowulf): 1

"Now that we've cleared out our own house, it's time to help our neighbors with their own housekeeping."

"General, this is a very bold move. Are you sure it's the right one to make? If our involvement is discovered, it could have terrible, global repercussions."

"You have your orders, Agent. Inform Nosferatu that they have a new target. The CCSD will back them up, as well." The General sighs as she turns her chair away from the Shadow Agent. "This dictator has proven radical to the point of endangering our national security. Terminate him immediately, but use the Manet Protocol. We want to avoid any... negative publicity."

“Commander Han Apollo, the Venusians have expelled.

Apollo nodded, “thank you sister. Engineer Diana Luna, the troops are being marshaled now. Let the board know my appreciation.”

“Will do Brother.”

Apollo turned off his comm got out of his commander Tiberius Storm. Then he looked around smiling, and grimaced.

Looking at the first fleet of Cooperative, take flight. It will be finished in around few years, the modifications begin on preparing his forces for another war in his time. They lost the last war. And they are going to lose this coming one. Is this all? Is this all they are capable of. A mix of the new Wyvern Class alongside older Draco Class are being deployed and prepared for battle. Not even a full fleet, less than a hundred.

Karyu’s and Astrocommanders are being prepared for launch. Even then only adding a 20 ships to the Cooperative one fleet and other rushed built half fleet. The larger Mecha are being equipped for orbital combat and prepared for launch. The around 500 Defensive Artillery Mecha and around 1000 Mecha Teams. Alongside the half of the rebuilt Robotech Force reduces to 60% of its overall numbers. The two Cooperative Rebuilt SunSpots and 3 Cooperative Enterprise class alongside 4 Astro and 8 Karyu-Gojira. Supported by Kuiato’s own Mecha forced.

An artillery class Mecha puts out a similar fire power to a cruiser. Or in theory. He looks around. He has another mission to do.

“We are preparing for war...a war. Third war in our time. It’s....not a war, I have hope for victory only to deny defeat. But it’s a war we must fight. We are already in shambles, our nation in crumbled. But we are not broken. Tonight our countrymen from Kuiato ready there arms. And we of the Cooperative, work together. We....” He looks at his people,
as he continues to lie, “shall not surrender.” It’s already known that the native board have already begun to prepare for peace.

Hope is dead here. Mattibean massacred and the failure of their generals and fellow corps members did little to inspire any degree of confidence. They are broken. A broken people, a broken nation. Without friends, without allies, and alone in the darkness. They faltered against Mattibean. And already buckling here? He turns inside as he heads to his own commander. They will try and fight in the Kuipler Belt leaving Earth mostly undefended. Mobius would help? That be the day. The others may offer but it will never materialize.

The head of the commander Corp know he is going to his death. And even as he reveled in finally getting Sulawesi and mainland China. He is seeing it all waste away. Already Pacifica government is turning against the deal and despite overtures for help he was found wanting. The war is already over before the battle is even fought he sighs.

“Astro Annihilation Commander Tiberius Storm. Prepared to Launch.” He sigh and thought to himself he wasn’t prepared, “even if their pilot isn’t.” He looks at the crowd, “but I must be for country. Han Apollo, Head of the Commander Corps, Pilot of Annihilation Class AstroCommander Tiberius Storm Launching.”

The Imperial Host is now mobilizing for a potential wartime situation. No specifics have been released regarding the potential enemy or the plan of attack, but many suspect that Cyon is preparing for a possible conflict with Venus (due to increasingly opposed rhetoric over the years and breakdown of diplomatic relations between the two nations).

National Anthem of the Venusian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic

Dispatch from the Federal Soviet of the Venusian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, the true home and emissary of revolutionary socialism within the solar system:

The VSFSR, in its role as steward of the August Revolution and champion of the workers, previously accepted a position on the board of the Cooperative as the rightful continuation of the Venusian civilization-state, a title previously held by the Second Empire, Second Republic, First Empire and First Republic. We hoped to use our position not for our own parochial self-interest, but also the betterment of all workers throughout the universe, but especially the downtrodden people of the Cooperative.

Horrifically high military spending and lack of funding for the common necessities of life has crushed the spirit of the Cooperative proletariat, their dismal situation smiting any hope for a better tomorrow, reflected in their apolitical outlook to their situation as wage slaves under a tyrannical corporation. We attempted to reform the system from the inside, working alongside pro-worker elements such as the PREU and IWA, with occasional support from other agents, but our attempts were frustrated at every turn. Simply, we did not have enough voting power to advance the issues of the worker - even our moderate minimum wage proposal was rejected.

The VSFSR had a largely democratic revolution: the people elected the Hero of the Revolution Commissar Levin and through mass popular action were able to overthrow the old regime. However, we did not shy from the use of violence against reactionary elements who refused to accept the will of the people. Thus, once our peaceful and democratic efforts were frustrated on the board, we turned to threat of revolutionary violence.

The people of Kuiato have long been the most oppressed of the Cooperative's downtrodden citizens. Culturally isolated, economically depressed, and subject to continuous losing fights during the frequent wars of the warmonger Domuians, they are in the greatest need of freedom. They are also located off of Earth, the bastion of reactionary powers and conservativism. Thus, they represent a weak link in the capitalist-fascist chain.

The Venusian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, alongside its ally the Union Government of Sybus, in accordance with the will of the people, the ideals of the August Revolution, and the constant march to universal socialism, hereby declares war on the Cooperative to liberate the people of Kuiato and join them with the legitimate Union Government of Sybus. All who stand against the march of the revolution will perish.

For the Revolution!

The New World Brigades, after a period of silence, have announced their presence again. The Brigades were known for being the most extremist anti-imperial revolutionaries and believed that the annihilation of the Outer Reaches Authority was the first step in a general colonial revolution which would eventually topple the regimes on Earth. However, the leadership of the Popular Front which brought the revolution to victory has shown itself to be more interested in consolidating its power and working towards the establishment of basic governance than throwing its resources into a war against all. The Brigades believe that a critical historical moment could be missed, and have therefore denounced the "tepid reformism" of the Popular Front leadership which governs the PREU. Their mysterious leadership have published a new manifesto calling for the downfall of the PREU and the "relentless imposition of the people's revolutionary will" against the ideologically impure. The Brigades believe that the people are with them, but the speed of the revolution's victory in the colonies blinded the people to the enormity of their historic task. It is therefore the task of the New World Brigades to, through revolutionary terror, drive home their message that the revolution is incomplete and aim to strike "deep and lasting blows" against both reform and reaction until humanity is polarized into two camps and a civil war can be waged to the death. The Brigades hold that no revolutionary victory can be permanent, and that revolution is a goal in itself. The "new world" they seek to create is a true permanent revolt, where the people are never held down and a place always exists for idealism, courage, passion, and virtue.

To work towards establishing this state of affairs in the PREU, the Brigades chose a key target to stage their provocation. The Popular Front was set to convene on the agrarian world of Arcadia to discuss the agrarian problem. This has been a deeply divisive issue within the Front, with opinions ranging from the conservatism of the Union for Democracy to the collectivism of the Communists. This meeting was to be preceeded by a parade, where the various delegates of the Front's constituent parties would demonstrate the unity and military prowess of the new government on a politically unstable world. The parade was assaulted by several dozen New World Brigades loyalists who produced previously-unseen models of light weaponry and opened fire from the audience, as well as buildings nearby. The General Secretary of the Front, Ashem Aziz, was badly wounded. The Deputy Prime Minister of Arcadia, Duke Ahrem Den Lux, was killed. The Commissar Ezah Aren of the Provisional Committee for Permament Revolution - the Front's internal intelligence apparatus - was also wounded, although not badly. Several other major functionaries were killed as well. All of the Brigades militants were either killed or committed suicide before they could be arrested.

Despite immediate rhetoric emphasizing unity, this presents a striking blow to the stability of the PREU. The agrarian question will remain unsettled, and new elections will need to be held to held at a critical time. The New World Brigades have made clear their break from the new PREU establishment and cemented their commitment to instability, but nobody knows where they will next strike. Responding to this heinous attack, Admiral Qahrem Den Gorz of the People's Navy vowed to "hunt down and exterminate these enemies of the revolution", and stated that the PREU would do so under its own authority and with its own resources.

Han Apollo looked at his fleet, 67 true Capitol Ships, 120 Mecha Teams, each team equivalent to a light Cruiser and 120 Mecha Artillery roughly equivalent to a destroyer. He took command of Dues Veritas “Tartarus”. The first of its kind, leading the force in defense, he only hopes. It’ll be enough, have grabbed as many spare as he could. And set forth Plan “Kuipler”, he has prepared for the worst. Just under half of his fellow Corpsmem and around 2/3 of the Engineers were assembled before him, and in their units.

Rapid construction and modification of freighters and more. To bulk his forces by a couple hundred, manned by Kuiato’s defense force. Unreliable but trustworthy? Hopefully this is their home more than his. Many only have a few banks of light lasers and weak plasma shielding. But hopefully. He looks at his home, Earth, his nation and company motto “Pugnare esse Pons” to fight is to be able.

To live is to have hope. A war isn’t over till your soul departs. But the battle is lost and the war is over? Abandoned and forgotten, left to fight for scraps. His nation even now it’s only hope fading with now Mobian demands coming to the forefront. Threatening and demanding payment or war. If they concede? What hope be that Mobius would help? And with the refusal of Mobius the only chance they had perish. Without Allies, without friends and having surrendered their only weapon and bulk of Mexico for better relationships. Nothing remains to protect them.

Even hopes of rebuilding a postive relationship with Mattibean after League War failed. With Mattibean declaration. And here he is, still choosing to fight? Why? He looks to his men.

“I see in your bodies, metal or organic, the same shivers. I see in a frightened child of the monsters beneath there bed,” he looks around “and I’d be lying if that wasn’t true for me. Yet you like I came, not because of your courage. Atleast not for most, because this Land. This land of ours. This planet, the dwarf planet in the Kuipler Planet. Is our planet, blood spread thin is still blood. Even if that blood is no longer liquid, our bonds of country tie us together. And today, and today we choose to fight for our nation.” He looks around, “if you wish to live you should run, I promise neither victory nor success I promise honor. But know for those choose to leave now. They are traitors, to family and country. To their home. So those who stay with me, know if you die, if I die, we die as martyrs and patriots!” He pauses.

“For Kuiato!” He declares

The comms roar back, and then he declares “for Our home! And Country!” The comms go a buzz with declarations of patroitism, he whispers “....may we die a good one.”
