Brazil, officially The Empire of South Integralist Brazil, is a despotic regime located in Europa. Its population consists of around 10 million individuals, all governed by a single head of state, Aleixo Medeiros, with the aid of his 8 ministers.

Since its formation on 18 August 2005, Brazil has worked hard to rebuild its infrastructure, which was badly damaged during the civil war. This has caused the economy to be one of the worst in all of Europa, with the smallest GDP ($50.1 billion) as well as the GDP Per Capita ($4,233).

With heavy investments on education, especially in the technology sector, Brazil is shaping to become a powerful and well-educated nation. It currently is one of the safest in the region, with almost non-existent youth crime, thanks to the government dedication to Law & Order.

Etymology

Each word from the name has its own origin:

  • The “South” is a tribute to the southern part of the country, where the first movements of resistance arose against the old regime in what would become the Liberation War.
  • “Integralist” comes from the portuguese word 'integralista', frequently used by the population, which can roughly be translated to english as 'unity'. It is meant to signify that the empire can only work when its population in united, with everybody playing a vital role in the preservation of the nation.
  • The origin of the world “Brazil” is still disputed among historians as for its true meaning. Some argue that it comes from the legend of Brazilium, said to be the chief who first united the tribes where the country is currently located. Other scholars claim that the name comes from an extinct bird that used to live on this region of the continent.

The official way to refer to a citizen of the Empire is as a "South Integralist Brazilian", or -more colloquially- as a “Brazilian”

History

Timeline of events

Geography

Given its somewhat small size, Brazil is relatively geographically homogeneous. Most of the countryside consists of barren landscapes interrupted occasionally by the few “serras”.

Close to the coastline -where humidity becomes more abundant as a result of the ocean- the bareness gives way to scrublands and sporadic forests, although the size is not large enough to make farming viable.

Brazil biggest forest, the Hugo Elias national park, is home to the jaguar, the nation’s symbol -as well as many other species- like the maned wolf and the tapir. Unfortunately, due to urbanization, most of the natural habitats of these wild animals are being destroyed, which is causing some species to become endangered.

The climate is predominately subtropical, with rainfall reaching a peak during the summer and temperatures ranging from 7°C (during winter) and 30°C (during summer). Due to its natural characteristics, the agronomic sector is severely underdeveloped in Brazil, forcing the nation to rely in fishing and import most of its food.

Most of the country population is located near the coastline, where the nicer climate made occupation more favorable. The nation capital has not always been on the location it is today; due to fears of attack and foreign invasion, plans for a new capital in the interior of the country was ordered, with the construction of Aurora being finished in 1985. This resulted in an influx of new residents to the core of the country, leading to greater diffusion of infrastructure in the nation.

Government

The Empire of South Integralist Brazil is a despotic regime, meaning that the head of state -Aleixo Medeiros- holds all political power in the nation. The system can be described as closely resembling one of a kingdom, taking away the fact that there is no royal family.

There are three types of government positions:

  • The Head of State is the ruler of the country. All laws and decisions must be approved directly by him. Is also considered the supreme commander of all military branches, but during wartime this power is usually not enforced.
  • The Ministers, who are appointed by the head of state when assuming power. Contrary to what their name may imply, the ministers are merely advisors of the leader and hold neither actual political nor social power. There is no limit on how many can exist in the government, but due to efficiency, the number is usually kept around seven.
  • Lastly, The Cande, who has the sole purpose of being the successor to the head of state. Any individual can be chosen to be in this position, as long as he is not from the same family as the current head of state. The decision must remain a secret to all but the leader, in order to prevent assassinations by hostile groups or regimes. When the current head of state dies, the Cruz Protocol is activated and the document containing the name of the successor is opened.

In order to curb political dissent and maintain peace on the empire, protests are permanently outlawed. Troublemakers are arrested and may return to society once it becomes clear that they are no longer a threat to peace and prosperity.

Foreign Relations and Military

The nation has no projection of power externally and never engaged in foreign conflicts. Its current policy is to only focus on trading with other nations and know more about them; contrary to popular belief, Brazil is not hostile towards non-authoritarian regimes, as long as they do not interfere with its internal politics and incentivize strife among its citizens.

Brazil possesses a small military, that although receives decent funds, lacks modern equipment. Due to the compulsory military service, the military boasts a large number of reserves, which are called upon during situations of national crisis; currently its role is to patrol the borders and maintain the sovereignty of Brazil. Several propositions were made in order to modernize it, but due to the slow economy and cost cuts, they were postponed. The three main branches are the Army Command, the Air Force and the Navy.

Economy

Brazil is a capitalist nation, but in order to assure a high quality of life to all citizens, the government allocates aids to those in need. The biggest example is the ‘Milk Law’, in which mothers who produce more milk than their infants need donate the excess to government, who in turn distributes it to mothers in need.

Due to its economic hardships, Brazil has 11.7% of its population unemployed. Nonetheless, the nation’s economic output is $72 billion, managing at the same time a trade surplus of $405 million. Because of its progressive policies, Brazil boasts an incredibly high income equality, with its richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

With a recovering economy, the country is set to eventually become a regional power and coupled with the current focus in education, 21% of the whole GPD or $2 billion, its population is becoming highly capable and efficient in order to increase competitiveness in the global market.

Culture

Brazil’s culture is mostly Latin-American, despite some of its customs deriving from American populations. While the official government language is English , some groups have attempted to make Portuguese an official language as well, nevertheless, without success.

Due to the recent civil war, most of the population is still trying to rebuild their homes and continue life as before and because of that, cynicism has become commonplace, with many abandoning religion altogether. Despite this, the government hopes to restore the multiculturalism previously shown by the population, with reforms and incentives to organizations, especially museums.

On their free times and weekends, Brazilians usually travel to the beaches to surf, one of the favorite hobbies of the nation; for those without access to the ocean, reading has become such an important activity that now the book publishing industry is one of the biggest in Brazil.
