Revolutionary Front for the People of Mexico

 

On January 31st, the United Mexican States declared her existence. After the collapse of the previous republic, the former states of Mexico all began to develop a similar ambition of reclaiming the lost territory and reunite the states under one banner. However, every state had a different way of going about doing so. Poorer states such as Chiapas were gobbled up by the more economically powerful states such as Tabasco, while areas such as the Mexico City became battlegrounds between several neighboring states, most notably the battle between Michoacán and Puebla, which lasted several months until Puebla eventually took the capital in a pyrrhic victory, which soon resulted in them getting carved out by the surrounding states.

It took several more years of stalemates and failed alliances before one state eventually came to prominence. Veracruz, a state known for its long coastal strip and many bordering states, had an upper hand in terms of population and resources compared to its neighbors. Through both diplomacy and bloodshed, Veracruz was able to unite majority of the Mexican states to the point it was unstoppable by the much smaller and comparatively weaker states. It came very close to reforming the former republic, however due to widespread disease and starvation, a socialist uprising began across the Veracruz-controlled territory, eventually capturing and executing the leaders of the state. Veracruz soon became a socialist state, and through aggressive diplomacy and skirmishing with native tribes, was able to unite all of Mexico under a red banner.

The socialists were able to successfully solidify control and establish control with a new far left ideology known as Syndicalism (where multiple parties may exist, however all must be far left in ideology), establishing the country of the United Mexican States (UMS). This syndicalist ideology quickly spread to surrounding areas such as southern Arizona and almost all of Central America, where the nearby revolutions allowed the newly-formed Mexican Army to test out its capabilities and annex what was left of the warring Central America and southern Arizona. The ambitions of the UMS were fulfilled for now, and the government was able to establish stability as they rebuilt cities and established a stable economy. However, the nation lacked a leader to stand by, and all power was in the hands of a newly-formed, yet divided congress. Eventually, after much heated debates and elections, congress was able to establish a constitution as the people of Mexico elected Alberto Anaya of the Revolutionary Front for the People of Mexico Party (RFPM) as the First President of the United Mexican States.

President Anaya, as most of the people still were, was highly ambitious of Mexico’s future. As such, his first act was the recruitment of several hundred explorers to go out and claim new lands in South America in order to expand both Mexico’s influence and control over the region. The explorers discovered the Galápagos Islands and several coastal states of former Columbia and Equador, claiming all what they have seen so far for Mexico.
