Before the Revolution
The First King
Before the Great Socialist Revolution of 3460, the people of Mandarr were ruled by an absolute monarchy. This monarchy was in place from 2995-3460. The first King of Mandarr was Janioplikos Demcaus the 1st. He was born in 2957, son of the King of an influential city-state. Janioplikos led a simple life, working for the tribe and later grew to be a great leader. When his father died in 2977 he became the King of the Mandarriens and led the city-state in many vicous wars and eventually united the region that would become known as Mandarr. He was the first King in the Demcausian dynasty and enacted many agriculture, educational, and military reforms that united Mandarr as a Nation State.
1st Demcausian Era(2995-3115)
After the death of Janioplikos in 2995 his son, Kedonplois took over the throne. His rule was marked by violent suppression of other different city-state's trying to unite the country in their name. He enslaved the Mundarians, Maradans, and Nabattoens, and exiled them to remote areas that would later become provinces of the Union of Socialist Worker Republics. Due to the free-labor of slavery the noblility and ruling family in Mandarr became extremely rich and the quality of life drastically improved for Mandarrans, but at the moral cost of slavery. This policy of forced labor continued well after Kedonplois death in 3034, until the Civil War of 3115.
Civil war of 3115
During the rule of King Janioplikos the 3rd(Kedonplois's grandson) the Mandarr people had an extravagant
life. Corruption was everywhere and the suppression and enslavement of miniority groups was common practice. The Kings brother, Hercalium was deeply disturbed by the treatment of the slaves and the corruption and decadence within the royal family. So when the slaves revolted in 3115, Hercalium seized his chance and killed the King, his brother during his sleep and claimed the throne. He united the slaves with the promise of freedom, but not everyone recongized the legitamcy of the new King so a violent but short civil war broke out and Hercalium was victorious and ruled for another 40 years. After his death in 3155, the 2nd Demcausian Era begun.
2nd Demcausian Era(3155-3289)
After the death of Hercalium his son, Landokipolis, took over the throne. This marked the beginning of the 2nd Demcausian Era. This era in Mandarr history had a strong line of mostly benevolent Kings, slavery was outlawed. and culture and philosopy flourished. This era was characterized by many and vast technological advancements, including electricity, automobiles, and planes among other things. Though there were many technological advancements in this era the country's economy didnt become industrial till the Socialist Revolution of 3460. During this 2nd Demcausian Era the monarchy became more imperialistic in nature. It slowly extended its control over every aspect of peasena. In 3289 the last truly benevolent king of Mandarr passed away, and the 3rd, and last, Demcausian Era started. Some call this last era the Reign of Terror.
3rd Demcausian Era; Reign of Terror(3289-3460)
After the death of Keldonplois the 3rd in 3289, his son, an intolerant religous fanatic took over the throne.
During his first year on the throne, King Julianons ordered the persecution and execution of anyone not following his religous code. Thousands across Mandarr were persecuted and their belongings confiscated. These belongings once again made the royal family obscenely rich. Later the King ordered the violent invasion of even more land to extend Mandarr's borders.
These invasions brought even more people under the persecution of the Imperial government, and it was during these early moments that the Workers Party was founded based upon Marxism-Lennism, underground, by a few revolutionary radicals.The party was very small at first but as life got worse in Mandarr, its ranks swelled. By the year 3320, underground networks of revolutionaries, calling themselves Worker Councils, were present in every city and village of Mandarr. And by 3325, a gruilla war broke out that would last almost 100 years, which would lead to the fall of the Mandarran Empire, in the Socialist Revolution of 3460.
Revolution of 3460
In the Kingdom of Mandarr, under the Demcausian dynasty, people were brutally oppressed by the noblility. Forced to work for next to nothing, with no hopes for decent jobs, education, or healthcare. By the year 3450 the workers have had enough. They formed worker councils all across the country, and rose up against the noblility, plantation owners, factory owners, and proprety owners. The King and other noblilty were arrested and mass trials soon begun across the country. In the year 3460 the last King, Janiopolkis the 4th was executed and the old order was completely gone, All the workers councils from across Mandarr met at what is now known as Revolution Center. They formed the 1st Congress of Workers and Peasants and formed the Mandarran Workers Party. With the new government in place the Kingdom of Mandarr ceased to exist and the Socialist Union of Mandarr took its place with Andrew as Party Leader and Prime Minister. The people of Mandarr have been in a state of constant revolution since.
Spread of the Revolution
Word of the successful revolution quickly spread to neighboring country the Kingdom of Nabatto. Conditions
for the people there were very rough and people were full of despair. When the revoultion in Mandarr took place they soon became inspired to try to change there lot in life. Soon mass protests erupted in all the major cities and civil unrest was spilling into the country side. Soon the Nabatto army was called to break up the protests and riots broke out across the country. The Mandarran people became outraged when they heard of the crisis unfolding. At the urging of the people the Party sent in the newly formed Red Army to aid in the revolutionary struggle. Soon a full-scale war broke out. The Nabatto army was quickly defeated and the Red Army aided the local people in setting up the first workers councils. The MWP set up a branch in Nabatto and has become the largest political party, leading the new government ever since. The old Nabatto nobility were tried and executed for crimes against humanity. Since October of 3461 the Party has led both countries into a new age of unity and economic prosperity,
Bombing of 3461
In the year of 3461 shortly after taking power there was a bombing in Revolution Center, the Mandarr capital. A bomb had explode in the congress building killing 40 congressmen, almost half of congress. The investigation uncovered a plot from the capitialist Mandarran Liberty Party. In response to the attempted coup and counter-revolution the MWP , under the guidence of the Prime Minister, passed the Civic Protection Act of 3461. This stripped any Liberty Party offical of their congress seat, banned any party execpt the MWP from running in congress seat elections, also banned all non-mwp members from voting, banned all political parties execpt MWP to prevent counter-revolution and collapse of the Workers' State.
Golden Era. 3462-3497
After the war, the Party's main focus was recovery and economic development. It was during this time that the Party spent trillions developing
education, health, and transportation to the high levels we see today. It was during the early years right after the war that the economy started to expand rapidly. Over the next 30 years the Party transformed the Union into an industrial power with many high value corporations. It was during the time of rapid economic expansion that delegets from the Soviet Federation arrived at the capital. Short negotiations took place and soon after the Union became an offical member of the Federation. Since joining, Party leader Andrew has become heavily involed with Soviet politics, and won the election of 3490. As Premier Andrew pushed consitutional reforms known asProject 3500.
After the revoution the MWP nationalized all business, and worked to create large state-controlled public corporations. It started widespread industrialization building over 15 corporations, and turning them high value. It was during this time that the average low level worker saw their salary jump from 14,500 to over 20,000 a year. Production levels during the golden era rose from 110% to 130%. Life expectancy rose from 59 years to 65 years. This was known as the Great Leap Forward.
Era of Reform 3497-3525
During the year 3496 the Ministry of Economic Planning noticed a small slight downwards trend in the economy, especially in the budget surplus. Due to inefficiencies in the education, welfare, and transportation sectors, cost skyrocketed. The budget surplus decreased by over 60% in a months time, and cash reserves
started to slowly shrink. The inefficiencies in the education system was the main driving force in the economic downturn. This was due to the large amount of universties that the Party had commissioned. To correct this ineffiences the Prime Minister created the Reform Act of 3496. This act went into affect in 3497. During this era the Socialist Movement of the Soviet Federation split into The Communist Party of the Soviet Federation, headed by PM Andrew and FedSoc headed by Dave. In the year 3500 PM Andrew steped down as premier to run in the new council. He won a a seat on the first Soviet Council and during his tenure Andrew created economic legislation known as The Economic Advice Act , and has been pushing to get it passed. Andrew also supportedThe Emergency Relief Standards Act.
In the year 3509 a horrific terrorist attack which led to the death of the Prime Minister rocked the capital. This attack led to the 2nd full scale war in Mandarr history. It was also one of the shortest but one of the most deadly with over 1 million dead and many Marada cities in complete ruin. Shortly after the war of 3509 the international markets and industrial sectors collapsed, leading to the widespread shutting down of corporations and high unemployment. Since the start of the crisis the Party has been passing economic reforms and protections to help the people. During the rising economic tensions Mandarr invaded the country to the south, Mundari and it became the 4th state in the Union of Socialist Worker Republics in 3515.
In the year 3518 the Union of Socialist Worker Republics suffered a major military defeat. Losing over 4 units worth of equipment and soldiers and massive civilian casulites. The failed war effort led to the protests of 3518. At the start the protest were protesting the war effort and when the party finally pulled the Red Army out the protest slogans changed. After the war ended the protesters begun protesting the Civic Protection act, and the dominating nature of the Workers Party. The protests were so large and wide spread that the economy was paralyzed for months until the Workers Party made concessions. The party overturned the civic protection act and Mandarr ceased to be a one-party dictatorship but a multi-party socialist republic
Reform Act of 3496
Party mandate designed to creat a more profitable, and efficient economy. Required the monthly closing of Universities and monthly building of elementary schools till a desired equilibrium is reached. Mandates the construction of roads, train tracks, and water treatment facility. This continued till the transportation system reached an equilibrium with the education system. This act also mandates the deactivation of defensive forces.
Celebrations of 3500
The year 3500 was a highly anticipated year. Its the 40th anniversary of the Revolution and Party, a new century starts, and a new government is being put inplace in the Soviet Federation. The Prime Minister's very successful term as Premier also comes to an end in 3500. During this year leaders from theImperial Union of Gaia, The Republic of Romanam, and Estovakia , arrived to take part in the festivities. The Febuary Mass Games celebrating the Revolution were the largest yet, with over 100,000 performers. There were many local and national festivals during this year and the entire army got the year off to spend with family.
International Relief Fund Act of 3504
In response to The Emergency Relief Standards Act being discussed within the Soviet Federation the Workers Party passed the IRFA or the Internation Relief Fund Act. This act mandated the stockpiling of vital relief resources and the creation of a large cargo airplane fleet of over 100 planes. Since the Party passed this law, Mandarr has sent large relief packages to all countries that experience natural disaster since the year of 3504.
Bombing of 3509
In the year 3509 a horrific terrorist attack hit the capital in a series of 3 explosions All the explosions were targeted at government buildings in an attempt to disable the government. The Prime Minister, 12 congressmen and many party members lost their lives. As a result General R.Lee took full emergency powers and launched a full NIOCC invesigation into what happened. Another secret plot from the Mandarran Liberty party sationed in Marada was discovered. A full scale invasion was a result of the invistgation.
War of 3509
After the attack of 3509 an invasion was immediately launched. The Red Army first targeted Marada's air defense units, then air attack units,
then land units, and within a week their enitre military was wiped out. After the military was gone the Red Army shifted its focus to liberating the cities, towns, and corporations. Much resistence was encountered and casuliteies were high but the Red Army was victorious. The war ended in the final assault on the capital only 2 weeks after the start of the war. After the war reconsturction begun immediately and the Kingdom of Marada was reorganized into the Workers Republic of Marada and became the 3rd state in the Union of Socialist Worker Republics.
Protests of 3518 and 3522
Due to a failed invasion, massive protests erupted across the Union. Hundreds of thousands of people took part and it completely paralyzed the economy. In 3518 a meeting between the Workers Party and oppisition groups took place, moderated by ambassadors from the Kingdom of Greenwood . As a result of the meeting the Civic Protection Act was overturned and general elections start in 3520. As a result of the civic protection act being overturned factions split off the Workers Party and formed the Democratic Socialist Alliance, the Green Party, and Federated Tribal Front.
After the elections, the DSA, green party and the FTF made small gains in congress and attempted to pass reforms that would either democratize the Presidium or reinstate the office of Prime Minster. Both acts failed, being voted down by the Workers Party that still held the congressional majority. Since the acts were both voted down disgrunlted civilians once again took to the streets in protest in 3522. At one point tensions during the protests were so high that the protesters started throwing rocks and government buidings and Worker Party members. Due to the assaults the membership of the Workers Party also took to the streets in protest.
Era of Consolidation 3525-3558
The protests that started in 3522 ended in the year 3525 after the election of a new General Secertary of the Workers Party. The new Worker Party leader, Robert Redman, took the party down a more hardline path. He stated in a speech to the country that the Party will take EVERY measure at its disposal to protect the Worker Party movement. This era in Mandarr history is charaterized by the political struggle between the Workers Party , and the DSA and Green Party. In 3528 the Congress of Workers and Peasents was overthrown and replaced by the newly formed Central Committee, and General Secretary in the 2nd great Socialist Revolution.
The new hardline government wouldnt last even 15 years before it and the entire Workers Party collasped. The collapse was brought on during major economic distress caused by supply shortages, and the uncompromising nature of former General Secertary Robert Redman. After a secret meeting between 6 Central Committee members, and jusitces from the House of High Commissionars, the Workers Party and USWR was disbanded, a provisional government was appointed and a constiutional committee was elected. After the consitution was quickly written, Mandarr hosted its first elections.
2nd Great Socialist Revolution
In the year 3528, General Secertary, Robert Redman, ordered the Red Army to occupy the capital, Revolution Center. While the occupation was taking place Robert Redman gave this intense speach
"Comrades and friends of Mandarr. A new dawn is upon us a 2nd Great Socialist Revolution has begun. As i speak to you our comrades in the Red Army have stormed the House of Congress and arrested the counter-revolutionary elements that aim to destroy our grand revolution. The disunity that Congress has created can no longer be tolerated. So hence forth the Congress of Workers and Peasants no longer exists and the Presidium will now handle all legislative and executive duties. Due to its new responsibility the Presidium is being renamed the Central Committee of the Workers Party. The DSA and Green Party are now considered illegal terrorist organizations and must be stopped by all means. May the new Central Committee be an everlasting symbol of the unity of our Great Socialist Revolution! Long live the USWR!"
During the 2nd revolution over 5,000 politicat oppisition members were arrested including some worker party officals. Due to the mass arrests the Republic of Ossory, applied international political pressure for their release. In light of the growning tensions within the Soviet Federation, the prisoners were granted amnesty and King Richard the 1st, of the Kingdom of Greenwood paid a state visit to Mandarr. This is his opening speech.
"Friends and brothers of Mandarr, we are in complete support of your people but not in support of the recent coup. More advisers will stay behind and set up an independent human rights committee to watch over the growing political instability and make sure no human rights are violated. I call upon the new Central Committee to listen to its people and make fair reasonable choices"
In reply the General Secretary said" Although we disagree with the King's position on our second revolution and the recent developments regarding arrests of revolutionary opposition members, we are willing to work with the King in common goals. The King has already graciously granted military access and authorisation to build a military base in his Kingdom, and to have Red Army troops join the international cohort already there. Our goal is normalise relations with the federation members who have expressed their deepest concerns over recent events in Mandarr. We want to convince Greenwood and the federation as a whole that our second revolution is acceptable as it ONLY for the betterment of the people of Mandarr."
After the 2nd revolution the Socialist Republic that lasted for only 10 years collapsed and Mandarr returned to being a Single Party State, In the year 3530 the Central Committee voted all executive powers to the General Secretary, Robert Redman.
Earthquake of 3529
During the fall of 3529 a horrible earthquake struck 2 states in the Union of Socialist Worker Republics. The
Workers Republic of Diantha, and Workers Republic of Mundari, around 10000 died in the intial quake. Because of the long government response, thousands more died. This prompted massive protests across the country. The protests quickly turned violent with many fires being set in many cities across the Union. Some fires burned for 2 weeks in some areas. Much of the capital, Revolution Center was burned down by rioters.
The Protests lasted for almost a year and were the most violent in Mandarr history. The protests finally ended after, the House of High Commissioners held court to rule on the legitimacy of the new regime under Robert Redman. The court ruled in favor of the new government and the protests subsided.
After the court ruling, the Red Army swore an oath to the new government and swore to continue the fight for socialism during the annual Victory Parade.
War and crisis of 3533
In January of 3533, the USWR went to war with a rogue terrorist President. During this war the USWR test
fired a nuke killing of 30,000 and injurying over 100,000. Due to the surprise and brutal nature of the attack the Republic of Ossory condemend it and imposed economic sanctions. Because of the sanctions, massive and violent protests broke out around the Ossarian Embassy in Mal Puento. During the protests radical extremists shot and killed an Ossarian minister and wounded many others. Protesters also blocked the runway, preventing the evacuation of Ossarian officials..
The Red Army was successful in suppressing the protests and arrest over 200 hundred protests to allow for the evacuation of Ossarian Officials. 3 of the extremists, also called the Mandarr 5 were exectued and the rests of the protesters receieved long prison terms after an international tribunal.
Cultural Exchange of 3536
During the middle of the year 3536 officials from the USWR and Imperial Union signed a cultural exchange deal. Students from both nations will go and live, study, and work in the other. In Mandarr the sports team from the Imperial Union became the first team from another nation to win the USWR football competetion. The General Secretary, Robert, Redman, personally awarded them the Mandarran Socialist Athletic Achievment Medal.
The Fall of Communism
In the year 3539 a large scale economic depression hit, with shortage rampent and people out of work, the Workers Party was frantically searching for a solution. During a heated meeting of the Central Committee, 6 Committee members walked out in anger and protest of the General Secretary's uncompromising nature soon after the General Secretary made an illegal move and dissolved the Central Committee. Because of this many Party youth clubs, and other groups renounced their party membership and went underground. Soon after things got violent. On the night of December 12th 3539, local youth in Revolution Center, stormed the Peoples Palace, and killed the General Secretary and many other high-ranking, hardline party members. Because of this attack, and the death of the General Secretary, 6 central committee members and the House of High Commissioners secretly met in a house on the outskirts of Revolution Center. And there they signed a legal document offically ending the rule of the Workers Party, and the government of the Union of Socialist Workers Republics.
Rise of the Nationalists(3540-3547)
After the fall of the USWR, a provisonal government was appointed and it elected a constitutional committee of over 70 politically independent
Mandarrans. They created a democratic system, with a Senate and executive headed by the Viceroy and Prime Minister. During the first elections in 3540 the Mandarran Nationalist Party won the majority in the Mandarran Senate with 168 seats as well as the Viceroy seat. The Peoples Republican Party won 88 seats. Together they passed economic reforms that decreased government spending through social security and wage cuts, they also lifted many restrictions on private industry. They have hinted Land Reforms are on the way. Due to the Labour party holding the office of prime minister and thus the power of veto, no land reform was passed.
This caused a Labour Party backlash, as the Nationalist launched a fierce but respectful attack campaign. In the 2nd Mandarr elections in 3545 They lost over 10 senate seats and the office of Prime Minister. The Nationalist as well as the Republican party made gains in the Senate, and Viceroy Steven Montgomery of the Nationalists was reelected to his 2nd term. During this second term the Nationalist passed their land reform and further economic reform.
United Front for Social Progress(3547-3562)
This privatized many acres of lands that had belonged to the collectives. Due to the privatzation many workers and peasents went homeless because they could not afford to buy the privatized land, as a result many went homeless. Due to further economic reform, social security payments, and government wages were cut, while corporate taxes were also cut and the military budget expanded 3fold. These cuts and austertiy measures caused a drop in the polls for the nationalists. Due to the economic collapse in the country side the Labour Party, and Green Party joined forces and became the United Front for Social Progress(UFSP) in an effort to win a senate majority. Together they filed a petition for special elections, a right guaranteed under the new constituion. Speical elections were held in 3547 and the UFSP won a 45% majority in the Senate, Linda Vazquez of the UFSP was elected Viceroy and Prime Minister Blake of the Peoples Republican Party was re-elected.
After the UFSP victory the Senate instantly resumed debate over the austerity enacted during the previous government. After almost a year of gridlock and debate, the UFSP finally overturned the Austerity measures. Land was returned to the collectives and the collective farmers who lost their homes got them back. This caused a massive increase in the UFSP approval rating, making them the most popular political party at that time. Another political party formned in the year 3550. The United Tribal Socialist Party. The UTSP was founded from a collation of natives who were politically independet. They have been described by some as a radical socialist, Maoist party. There platforms includes the complete collectivization of all industry, abolish all forms of private property. Due to their radical ideas and similarites to the former Mandarran Workers Party , they are not very popular.
Depression of the 3550s
After the elections of 3547, and after the Nationalist Austerity measures were reversed there was an economic collapse in Mandarr. Due to
extensive social services and a large military. The Viceroy and UFSP controlled senate tryed to reverse it through small scale military deactivation. But it was not successful and the depression continues to this day. It has become the longest period of economic hardship Mandarr has experienced since the rule of the monarchs.
Due to the extended period of economic hardship, many radical political ideologies started to regain popularity. Mandarran Communism, triumphed by the United Tribal Socialist Party, and Mandarran Nationalism promoted by the Nationalist Party are some of the most popular radical parties. Because of their rise in popularity,, Viceroy Vazquez postponed elections till 3555, in order to protect the still fragile democracy. In 3555 Viceroy Vazquez was reelected, and the UFSP held onto its majority. The Nationalist party lost all its seats in the Peoples congress to the United Tribal Socialist Party. In the year 3558 separatist groups started to form in Nabatto. These groups were ultra-nationalist in tendencies and advocated either peaceful, or violent, independence from Mandarr. As a result Viceroy Vazquez started proceedings to get a ban on political parties adovcating violence in place before the elections of 3560.. The Viceroy and UFSP struggled to keep the economically fledgling Union of Nations together.
Socialist Unity Party Formation and attack of 3562
After the depression entered its 10th year, and the outbreak of separatist violence in Nabatto, the United Tribal Party and United Front for Social Progress joined forces to become the Socialist Unity Party , under the leadership of the Viceroy and Jake Redman, Robert Redman's son. This party was the first left wing party to make gains in the House of Ministers, traditionally its been dominated by the right sector. After the elections in 3460 a bomb exploded in the capital, critically injuring Viceroy Vazquez. Jake Redman was acting Viceroy until she recovered.. Far right nationalist, and separatist groups took credit for the attack. This attack led to further distrust for the Nationalist and right wing parties. And many Mandarran polls at the time, indicated many Mandarrans want to return to a communist government.
During the 3560s an international crisis with the Nation of Tactical Rock broke out. The nations spilt off into many splinter groups. Communist
militias, jihaddist, and government loyalists all fought for control of the country. Many Soviet nations got involved siding with government loyalists instead of the Socialist Revolution taking place. This led to the acting Viceroy Jake Redman to impose a ban on all foreign travel, and adopted an isolationist policy, though the government remained highly critical of Soviet involvement. The government commissioned a monument in honour of the Communist militias and failed Socialist Revolution in Tactical Rock.
Era of the Socialist Unity Party
In the year 3565 Viceroy Vazquez was reelected and the Unity Party majority grew by almost 10%. It was during this tenure that the Viceroy declared the First Republic Mandarr a Socialist Republic. This marked the beginning of a socialist dominated government for the Mandarran Union. In the 3570s the party and Viceroy's main focus was military expansion in the poorly defended provinces while continuing the Mandarran Economic Recovery. In 3574, Viceroy Linda Vazquez suffered a stroke which would leave her in a coma until her death in 3575. Her son Senator Hector Vazquez replaced her as Viceroy of the Republic in the 3575 national elections.
In 3576 Viceroy Hector was granted further executive powers by the Senate, including the power of veto, and the power to call and suspend national elections. Later, in 3579 he would use those powers to suspend elections for Viceroy after recieved terrorist threats. Ultranationalist/Separatists threatned to kill the Viceroy if chooses to run and they threatned to bomb highly populated voting areas. In response via exectuive order from the Viceroy, thousands of Mandarr troops were stationed at polling locations across the Union. In the 3580s nationalist protests broke out across the Union, in Mundari protests grew violent, when a nationalist protester started shooting into the counter-protesting Unity Party crowd. In an effort to protect citizens the Mandarran Police open fired into the Nationalist crowd killing hundreds. This would lead the Supreme Peoples Assembly to outlaw public protests and the carrying of firearms.
Mandarran Highlandic Trading Bloc and the Act of Disapation
After much debate within the Senate in 3583 it finally passed economic independence resolution 01, which pulled Mandarr and all of the provinces out of the Unisov common market. Soon after talks would begin with theHighlandic Federation which would lead to the creation of the Mandarran-Highlandic Market The creation of this market was one of Viceroy Hector's main achivements. Soon after Viceroy Hector was granted full executive and legislative powers. He later dissolved the Senate and created in its place, the Supreme Peoples Assembly, which is divided into the Peoples Congress and the Secretariat of the Unity Party, this was called The Act of Disapation.
In 3595, the Supreme Peoples Assembly became aware of a dire humanitarian crisis in a bordering state. So via order of the Assembly, Viceroy Hector ordered a land invasion. Soon after the Mandarran Armed Forces held a public referndum to see if the population wanted to join the Union. The vote was successful and the state was renamed as The Republic of Vazquez, named after the Vazquez family. Fast reconstruction begun and in the early 3600s the newly formed state joined the Mandarran-Highlandic Market.
In 3600 Viceroy Hector Vazquez stepped down as Party Secertary letting his son, Nikko Vazquez, take over the leadership of the Unity Party. Soon after in 3610 Viceroy Hector Vazquez passed away and Party Leader Nikko Vazquez was appointed Viceroy by the Supreme Peoples Assembly.
When Nikko took over as Viceroy, he immediately launched a series of reforms. These reforms included a Party Purge, and many economic reforms which included the nationalization of an entire Private Enterprise know as Mandarran Tech, and the creation of the state run enterprise the Mandarr Industrial Complex. These economic reforms were enacted in a series of 10 year plans, which first begun in 3605. By 3640 all states in the Union had such high levels of developement in health care, education, and transporation they had never been reached before. By 3640 the Private enterprise Mandarran Tech was completely assimalted by the Mandarran workers, foreign governments, and the Mandarr Industrial Complex. Nikko's rule would last another 26 peaceful years before he past from old age.
Earthquake of 3667 and Party Reformation(3667-3700)
Nikko's son Alenjandro was quick to fill his fathers footsteps. His first act in office was to reform the Union and give every province a new name. In 3667 the Republic of Mandarr, became known as the Mandarr Peoples Republic. The Mandarran Union became known as the Union of Peoples Republics. Though his tenure seemed promising it was cut short after only 6 months in office a brutal earthquake struck during a session of the Central Committee and Viceroy, causing the large government building to collapse around them, ending the Vazquez line. With every high ranking party official including the Viceroy dead the Supreme Peoples Assembly acted fast and elected a new Central Committee. The new Committee went on to disolve the office of Viceroy to prevent an internal power strugge.
Economic Coup of the 3670s
After the Central Committee gained the peoples power once held by the Viceroy, the Committee went on to reform the Socialist Unity Party and the Federal Government. The Socialist Unity Party was renamed the Communist Party and the Mandarran Union was renamed the Union of Peoples Republics, and every state became known as a Peoples Republic. The Committee collectivized every form of centralized government managment.(for more info on the changes see Branches of Government and Government Process.) Very soon after, the Committee launched efforts to regain control and managment of the economy from private influence. It enforced a very high corporate tax rate and minium wage, ensuring that a private enterprise that refused to surrender its assests to the Communist Party and stay in the country would serve the peoples interests. This would cause most corporations to flee throughout the union, over 20 were also nationalized for not increasing wages, as a result there are very few private corporations in the Union of Peoples Republics. As a result unemployment reached levels that havent been seen for hundreds of years. The level of unemployment took decades to bring back into normal levels, it wasnt until the 3690s that the people of the Union of Peoples Republics had some form of economic stability.
