The Principality of Tikal or Tikal is a former nation in North America that spanned portions of southern Mexico and Central America.
Tikal was bordered by North Mexico to the north and Gemini to the south. It consisted of the former Mexican regions of Campeche, Chiapas, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Puebla, Quintana Roo, Tabasco, Veracruz, and Yucatan as well as Belize and portions of Guatemala.
In 2058, Tikal declared its independence from North Mexico. The two sides fought for three years, before North Mexico recognized the independence of Tikal. Due to the shared history as part of the Republic of Mexico, Tikal is sometimes referred to as South Mexico.
Government and PoliticsEdit
South Mexico was a constitutional monarchy consisting of a High Prince, Fidel, and a unicameral legislative body, the Tikal Council. The council members selected a Prime Minister who served as the legislative leader.
Tikal and North Mexico were often at odds with each other as a result of Tikal's war for independence. This conflict eventually resulted in the Grand Mexican War, which resulted in Tikal surrender and the reunification of Mexico. Tikal's strongest allies were Las Islas Bellas and the Gemini Republic.
