Take note that this is before the creation of NAMP.

With the League War now over, a sense of stability has somewhat returned to the geopolitical scene in South America. However, the elections for the 47th Secretary General and Supreme Council spell the opposite. The 4689 elections were witness to the shakedown of the old political order dominated by an alliance between the Syndicalists, Communists, and the Joffreyist National Worker's Alliance. In it's place, a bloody playing field of radical politicians has emerged.

Leading up to the election, it was clear to all that the National Worker's Alliance would suffer greatly as the party witnessed a split between the more Trotskyist radical wing and the moderate Joffreyist academics. A fallout over the League War and lingering conflict in South America with Cyon and Asteria resulted in a final showdown among two of the National Worker’s Alliance political candidates. When the party leadership sided with the more moderate voice of Géraud Chi, an advocate for peace in South America(solely for concern of war exhaustion not belief in world peace), the fate of the party in the election was sealed.

Where the National Worker's Alliance lost voters, the Communist Party gained voters. At the onset of the League War, the Communists made it clear that they supported the war entirely and typically had a disproportionate representation in joint-party meetings over war proceedings. Therefore, it was without much surprise, that the Communist Party was outraged over the capitulation of the government when the 46th Secretary General Maurice Rolande announced that the Worker's Republic would withdraw it's declaration of war on all nations except the Cooperative. Some in Rolande's own party, the National Worker's Alliance, along with the Syndicalists and the Democratic Socialists were never in support of the war to begin with, and their continuous pressure on Rolande forced him to back down and let his allies in the pro-war Communist Party down.

Yet, to put further salt on the wound, the still hawkish Rolande then announced he would not run for another term as Secretary General - as he had promised the Communists he would - and then endorsed Géraud Chi the pacifist. The Communists lost their biggest ally, the Joffreyists.

However, not all was lost for the Communists. The move to cowardly pacifism by the National Worker's Alliance alienated many of their staunch Trotskyist voters, driving them to a still pro-war Communist Party. Surprisingly, though, the National Worker's Alliance didn't just lose voters to the Communists but to a new radical party, the People's Liberation Front. The PLF, the same name for an old communist party that came to prominence leading up to the civil war that brought the Imperium into existence, clearly does not represent the bygone party’s values of Trotskyist communism, but rather is an internationally minded fascist organization.

The PLF, made up of frustrated followers of the National Worker’s Alliance and the Syndicalists, represents a growing viewpoint of some West Africans that the democratic government has held down the nation and the effective bureaucracy of Eva Joffrey’s reforms. While being an obvious fascist party, the party’s leadership insists that it is no different than the other leftist parties, except that it mixes the militarism of some parties with the Trotskyist beliefs of others.

While the PLF only gained a small three seats in the Supreme Council, the party’s candidate for the Secretary Generalship pulled in the fourth largest number of voters a surprisingly high number of voters for a new radical party of questionable motives.

To the little surprise of the nation, at the end of the election, Daniel Wairimu of the Communist Party won the election. Feeding off the widespread dissatisfaction with the establishment candidates, Wairimu managed to snatch a major victory with a ten point lead on the Democratic Socialist candidate, Gabrielle Tarik. However, sitting at an approval rating of barely above thirty percent, Wairimu sits in a precarious position. This is not to mention his party's small six seats in the Supreme Council and no allies in other parties.

While it is a major policy stance of Wairimu that the Worker's Republic must redeclare war on Cyon and unify Brazil, it is obviously impractical as a declaration of war requires a 2/3 majority in the Supreme Council, something that Wairimu can not organize. Furthermore, the lack of seats in the Supreme Council blocked off the Communist Party from gaining the critical position of Council Chairman, a title given to the Democratic Socialists. In the coming years, the nation will be observing the proceedings of the beleaguered Wairimu Secretary Generalship and it's already rough start.

In a controversial move, the Imperial Senate has been disconnected from the House of Lords. The House of Lords, while still existing, will lose much of it's power. From now on out, the House of Lords will only be able to propose legislature as a body, but will lose the ability to vote on the passing of any legislature.

Directly following this startling move, the Imperial Senate voted to raise taxes to 40% from the previous 23%. This is not only to support the increased militarization of the Imperium, but is most notably directed towards a vast expansion of social programs across the nation.

We now have a new, far more universal Healthcare Plan (with an average yearly spending of 2,859.76 CC per capita), which prioritizes those who need assistance (there will be a local board, comprised of impartial computers, which will interview applicants to determine their level of need). We have also established a system of free government institutes of higher learning, which will allow everyone in the Imperium to pursue a degree, regardless of circumstances. Of course, private institutions will still exist, but there is now another option for all those who choose to take it.

The first half of Secretary General Wairimu's term was marked with strife both within government and in society as a divisive Supreme Council failed to make much headway on anything, except for the joining of NAMP, a rare success overshadowed by the continuing strife.

The outcome of the 4689 elections clearly predicted what would come in the following years, with not a single party in a place of significant power. In fact, each of the three major establishment parties(Syndicalists, Democratic Socialists, and Joffreyists) witnessed a major contraction of their followings as party leaders lead their parties down unpopular routes on policy and political maneuvering.

Terran Democratic Socialist Party
While the TDSP holds the largest number of seats in the Supreme Council and the valuable position of Chairman, it is a mere facade for the state of the party. Upon the conclusion of the elections, the TDSP alienated it's more left wing supporters by further pushing themselves to the center by supporting a critically weakened Liberal Reform Party, a mouthpiece of the upper classes of the Republic. The move, made likely to gain an additional pitiful three votes and possibly some support from an on-the-fence Syndicalist party, failed to garner much more support. Many experts looking into the quarrelsome Council hoped that the TDSP would reach out to a beleaguered National Worker Alliance leadership, but talks of a stability coalition broke down in face of NAMP negotiations.

National Worker's Alliance
The NWA was easily the most affected by the chaotic elections. From a position of power that they held under the NWA's Maurice Rolande's Secretary Generalship to a fractured mess of a party under an equally fractured Communist leadership,the NWA has strayed far off the path. Before the elections, the NWA was conglomeration of various elements held under control by a tightly knit leadership. Academic Joffreyists, Trotskyist Radicals, and a small segment of Communists all followed the creation of the past Secretary General Eva Joffrey, the National Worker's Alliance, a party that had been completely created around her strong willed policy stances.

However, as Rolande's time began to end as Secretary General, the matter of war pulled apart the now suddenly frail leadership. Under the hawkish Rolande, the NWA worked closely with the equally hawkish Communist Party of West Africa(CPWA) and Rolande was often seen conversing with CPWA leadership on matters of war decisions. However, Rolande was not of the leadership cult of the NWA, a cult that was starting to sway over the party's war policy thanks to an increasing number of Joffreyist Academic members of the cult. So when the NWA leadership announced that they would not give it's nomination to a second term with Rolande, the party simultaneously threw themselves down a pacifist route that sent shock waves through the divided party.

As Rolande began his quiet and graceless exit from the party and politics in general, the NWA hawks prepared a final assault on the increasingly pacifist and idealist party leadership. Yet, time was running out. With People's Council elections set to begin in a couple weeks the party hawks called for a emergency party congress meeting and brought forth a vote to remove several of the outspoken doves holding party leadership positions, from Party Chief Financier to Party Chief of Public Relations. The Party Congress meeting, a last minute gambit by the minority Hawks to appeal to a hopefully larger number of Hawk members outside of the inner party circle, ended in an indecisive outcome. After several hours of heated political debate, the hawks ground out the inconsequential resignation of the Party Chief on Education Policy at the price of reduced support from lower level party members and a now threatening glare from a fortified pacifist leadership.

The elections were brutal for most NWA Supreme Council candidates with many hawks being rejected by the Nomination Committee. In their place, the Committee disregarded the wishes of their party supporter and lower level members by granting nominations to pacifist candidates who would now have to compete with hawks from other parties over still hawkish citizens. As for the rejected party hawks, many fled to the ranks of the CPWA, which held true to the pro-war policy and provided certainty with it's cohesive leadership. Many of the NWA's communist members followed suit and left to join the ranks of the CPWA.

The NWA, although now led by a more cohesive pacifist leadership, lost much support from the public after it's purge of party members, a matter that was highly publicized by an angered and still popular group of rejected hawks. For the next three years of the term, the party continued to pursue an unpopular campaign of targeting it's mid level party members that still protested the change of foreign policy, greatly reducing it's ability to cooperate with parties and themselves on policy. The only success of the party lied in the passing of NAMP, something that still somehow managed to find common ground in the NWA.

Terran Syndicalist Party
Upon the results of the elections, it was clear that the TSP was largely left untouched by the political turmoil compared the other parties. While other parties were left with alienated voters and impending purges of party members, the TSP experienced nothing worse than a momentarily unstable leadership and the loss of some more interventionist parties to the People's Liberation Front. The latter of the two was the matter that hit the party the hardest, with some of the younger and discontented politicians leaving to create a similar yet more radical party centered around what they termed "International Syndicalism" but can find more similarities with fascism.

Despite the loss of several key party members, the Syndicalists remained largely unscathed while standing as the Council's third largest party and it's largest stable party. When the TDSP made a proposal to create a coalition that would include the Syndicalists, the party quickly rejected the proposal in a General Conference of mid to upper party members. In the Syndicalists view, the TDSP was becoming a party to far to the center and against policies necessary to the Syndicalist's party mission. Yet, this also alienated the party's only potential ally. The troubled NWA had no desire to work with the Syndicalists despite the sensibility in such a move.

Communist Party of West Africa
While the CPWA managed to pull off a victory in the Secretary General elections, the party's success strays no further than that. In the Supreme Council, the party stands alone on the matter of war except for the distrusted People's Liberation Front. Their old ally and benefactor, the National Worker's Alliance, cut all friendly relations with the CPWA upon the removal of Rolande and the remaining hawk elements in the party leadership. In effect, the loss of this ally neutered the outspoken party of Trotskyist Communists.

Yet, it can't be forgotten that the CPWA still holds the single most powerful institution in the Worker's Republic, the Board of Directors, the bureaucratic ring of leaders that manage many affairs such as financial policy, military infrastructure, education, the economy, and much more. Obviously, the power of the Board has been a focal point of the discussion of several parties such as the TDSP and the Liberal Reform Party who call for a Republic led more by an elected government than a bureaucratic ring of leaders. Yet, this argument is over exaggerated in many cases as the Board of Directors holds very little legislative power and can be given directives by the Supreme Council which require a majority vote.

Surprisingly enough, the need for directives to receive a majority vote in the Supreme Council is where the CPWA has benefited the most. In the absence of directives, which few have been issued due to a lack of party cooperation, the Secretary General acts as an almost unrestricted head of the Board and directs all major activity. Upon being elected, Wairimu set himself to work while his party struggled in the Council. With quick action, Wairimu ordered the resignation of a third of the Directors and used his influential weight to pull many communist supporters into key positions. Unsurprisingly, this was not a hard feat for Wairimu, a former Director of Resource Productions, a lucrative position for rising politicians. Furthermore, leftist ideologues are commonplace in the levels below the Board of Directors, giving the powerful Wairimu the ability to forge a Board of Directors to his liking with ease upon removing the most vocal opponents. The near undisputed control of Wairimu over the Board of Directors gives the CPWA a major source of power that will likely deliver the most results in the case that the CPWA loses the Secretary Generalship.

Of course, the CPWA drew much flak from the more outspoken news outlets, yet little was done to oppose the action, or rather little could be done. Instead, Wairimu was actually praised by many for his "unifying" efforts. In reality, he was the only politician doing something nearly constructive.

West African Nationalist Party
The WANP, a usually ignored forced in politics remained just as such, an ignored force. The elections resulted in the formation of a largely uninspired leadership coming to power, which was promptly removed roughly three months after coming together after the elections. The leadership was then replaced with an ideological head with an expected strategy of rhetoric and criticizing the system.

Yet, the WANP isn't completely helpless, running a 3,000 strong youth organization with questionable ties and managing a well funded party news outlet despite the scrutinizing eye of the law. Just like the CPWA, the party relies on much of it's power from sources outside of the Council where it holds a pitiful five seats and maintains no alliances.

Liberal Reform Party
Despite the name, the Liberal Reform Party isn't especially liberal in it's policy stances. The popular voice piece of the pressured upper crust of society that maintain no political ties(a demographic group that is rare as those that have wealth have power), the Liberal Reform Party largely answers to this group, granting more powerful positions in the party to the highest bidder. Even more corrupt than the National Worker's Alliance and the CPWA, the Liberal Reform Party spends millions of cc's in acts of party corruption. Thankfully, the Liberal Reform Party has very few party outlets to use to spread their aggressive level of corruption.

The elections wrecked havoc on the party, which saw many of it's supporters abandon the party to spend their money on either the People's Liberation Front or the TDSP. Despite the loss of supporters, the Liberal Reform Party still managed to make a major success by reconnecting to long estranged TDSP desperate for support. The TDSP and the Liberal Reform Party experienced major fallout several decades ago after a corruption scandal between the two parties led to the influx of negative publicity for the TDSP and a need to abandon it's dead weight ally. Therefore, the reforming of an alliance isn't expected by many to last long with Liberal Reform Party members looking to tap into new political avenues between the two parties.

People's Liberation Front
The newest party in a couple hundred years, the PLF embodies a new class of younger anti-establishment politicians who embody a growing desire for anti-democratic governance. While the party has fewer than 10% of the population supporting them, many observers believe that the PLF will thrive off of the divisiveness of the other parties, a failure the PLF links with the numerous faults of democracy. Yet, the party must tread lightly and take the path of democracy if they are to destroy it at all. Upon the party's formation, the rest of the Supreme Council has been closely watching their growth despite whatever issues they may be facing in their own parties, lest the PLF grow into a plague that kills them all.

The PLF, although they call themselves "International Syndicalists" seem to be very similar to an actual fascist group, with policies that support the destruction of democracy and subordination of the vast unions to a centralized, bureaucratically elected Secretary General. Furthermore, the PLF remains pro-war and may or may not use war as an opportunity to plant foreign elements in the ensuing chaos. So far, party meetings have been quite covert and secretive to the dismay of outsiders looking into this new radical party.

Monarchist Party
An isolated and mocked party that to many holds no importance, the Monarchist Party has continuously voiced the desires of the small sliver of monarchists in the country. The election left them untouched due to their small and inconsequential size. The party's best hope is that the country is invaded by a monarchist nation friendly to the party's leadership.

In his first few years as king, George has made it clear his intent to bring Pacifica into the future and to curb the decentralization of power his mother started. He's abolished serfdom and removed the rights of minor houses to have armies; he's also (through the Praetorian Order) removed any noble privilege's in the armies or navy. This naturally has earned George the enmity of most minor noble families, setting up for a more divisive reveille than normal. Some media have taken to calling him the "Tyrant King George" and Duke Celebes II, the ousted Chancellor and leader of the revanchists, has become his biggest critic.

A message from Callisto, the capital of the USG: The Union Government of Sybus, with the support of the Venusian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, seeing the plight of the proletariat of the pretender state of the Cooperative, hereby issues an ultimatum to the Cooperative. If immediate action is not taken to better the circumstances of the workers of the Cooperative, the UGS and VSFSR will declare war on the pretender reactionary-capitalist Domuia. Together, we are going to liberate the Kuiatan victims of Domuian imperialism and unite them with the true government of Sybus, the Union Government.

In a policy some have called "mandated" and others "foolish", the minimum age to enlist in the professional military in Pacifica is being raised to 80. In addition, a new younger clone with current-gen augmentations will be made available to anyone who enlists. The generals have said that with the increased lifespans in Pacifica coupled with resurrection tech, choosing only to hire those with degrees and experience was a no brainer. Other benefits are also being discussed, including homesteads on colony worlds for those who enlist in the Colonial Defense Corps of the Praetorian Order's paramilitary forces or increased pay and guaranteed resurrection for soldiers in general. Together with this announcement, the Crown is subidizing extra resurrection pods in Australia and India and research into technologies to offset sudden l;osses of life in large numbers.

"General Manson, I have news on the death of Agent Durango."

The large, black chair slowly swiveled to face the Shadow. General Manson was relatively young, as she had been one of the brightest students of the Akademie and one of the Spectral Agency's most promising operatives. At least, that was until her promotion. She had long, flowing black hair, but with cold, light blue eyes. No one knew how many people had had those eyes be the last things they saw. "What is it, Agent Theta? Did you retrieve the data?"

" I did, ma'am, but I'm not sure you're going to like it."

The General's eyes narrowed."What was the Intel? What did Durango leave behind?" "Not much." replied Theta. "However, we picked up a recording stating that 'A Fun Store' had been compromised by 'Bolivian Mining'. Agent Durango specifically recorded that we should look at the underworld."

General Manson froze, her eyes staring at Agent Theta for some time. "Are you absolutely positive about the exact wording of that message?"

"Yes, ma'am."

"Very well, you are dismissed, Agent. You've done good work here today. Colonel Anderson well debrief you in room five."

The Shadow left the room, the General staring after him. As soon as he was gone, the General picked up the direct line to the CCSD. "We need to talk. It's about the Bolivian Mining."

"You don't have much time, Raul." The Voice spoke in a gravely, hushed tone. "This is your only ticket out of here. From now on, you are no longer Raul, the Brazilian dictator. You are Emperor Maximus of the Empire of Brazil. I have... Contacts... Outside of the complex. They have arranged to insert your mind into the body of the heir to the Brazilian Empire. The Emperor is currently... Indisposed. He will be dead in about a day. With the chaos inherent to a change of rule, you will be in a position to push for a royal marriage with Cyon. You will rule both nations. Nosferatu, a secretive program, has been partially infiltrated by my friends in the Invisible Hand.

I picked you for this for a reason. You are a great commander, and you know how to take charge. Don't disappoint me. It's probably the last thing I'll be able to do, but I must carry out my final mission. I must restore the monarchy. It's what I was born to do. I was always meant to protect the Imperator.

Good luck, Maximus. The Invisible Hand will guide you if you need. If anyone asks who sent you, tell them Mentalis sends his regards."

The next day, Maximus woke up Emperor of Brazil.

"General Manson ordered it. We have to do a thorough test of all agents and their loyalty. That starts with you, then we'll deal with the robots."

"Sir, are you sure about this? If ate wrong, a lot of agents are going to die or be imprisoned for nothing."

"It's better than the alternative. Now, let's begin your evaluation, shall we?"

(5 days later)

Public: The 1st Consul has recently announced the sizable downsizing of a few key government assets, which he refused to name. This is in order to increase national security and, more specifically, the ability to more closely monitor military operations and members of various government agencies.

OOC/HFPE: The Invisible Hand is a dangerous group of terrorists that focus on destabilizing the economy (Code Name Bolivian Mining). Historically, they weReturn responsible for both Ragnarok and the HAL crisis. They partially infiltrated Operation Nosferatu ("A Fun Store", the project involving Ammitians) and established a contact with Mentalis inside the Hades Complex (the CCSD-run "underworld). Not realizing their full intentions, Mentalis released political prisoner and war criminal General Raul (of Brazilian infamy) as part of a plot to restore the Imperator's power. Raul, posing as Maximus, is now Emperor of Brazil.

Cyonian intelligence found out about this (including the disturbing news of the Invisible Hand's resurfacing) and purged the system, eliminating any traces of The Invisible Hand's influence in Nosferatu and the Spectral Agency at large. They also worked with the CCSD to discover Mentalis and permanently terminate his program. They also discovered that Raul had disappeared, but are unsure of his current location/alias for now. They are searching, however.

As a side effect, the Spectral Agency is now drastically downsized. Shadows are being all but discontinued, and the remaining 2,000 will serve in a reduced capacity (primarily as agents who train insurgents). From now on out, I will only have 700 Black Swarms and 5,000 Ammitians.
