The Republic of War once spanned much of Texas and Mexico before collapsing in 2021. The Republic of Mexico was founded shortly thereafter. Mexico expanded into many parts of the former United States, including the territory occupied by the Navajo Union. Approximately one month after the formation of the Republic of Mexico, the territory was ceded to the Navajo Union for self governance.
In 2068, revolution broke out in the Navajo Union. Ernesto Espada, a revolutionary from Salt Lake City formed a militia known as the Espadas Rojas. The Republic of Mexico, North American Commonwealth, and Republic of California supplied the Espadas Rojas with arms and they quickly toppled the Navajo government by the year's midpoint. Espada established the Southwest Socialist Republic as a new socialist successor state.
Government and PoliticsEdit
The SSR is a Single-party state in which the Espadas Rojas, a socialist party, controls the government in its entirety. The Secretary of the Espadas Rojas serves as the head of state for the nation.
The Republic of Mexico, Republic of California, and North American Commonwealth have very good relations with the SSR. These three North American nations supported the revolution of Ernesto Espada. The three nations have significant influence on the Socialist Party, and effectively, all internal politics of the nation.
