    Claiming Venezuala. I'm the dictator, so there's no party or whatnot.

    Since this is uniquely interesting, I'll join.

    Party Name: The America Now Party
    Flag:

    Spoiler :


    Ideology: A New Manifest Destiny. The United States should use its vast industrial and financial might to establish hegemony over the Americas. Insurrection should be stamped out by force.

    The ANP supports business in the sense that unneeded regulation shouldn't be placed on businesses.

    The ANP at the same time believes that consumers and workers should have "acceptable" working conditions and pay. The ANP, therefore, would not place as heavy a burden on labor unions as other political parties and ideologies. Strike-busting (corporations hiring thugs to violently break up picket lines) will be outlawed and the law enforced under penalty of heavy fines for the corporation and jail time for the strikebusters.

    During times of economic hardship, the government should mobilize to decrease unemployment and increase living standards.

    Leader: Ronald Fennigan
    Location: United States

    Free America finds this new American party to have very agreeable policies, but finds it unfortunate that they believe that the current system still works. Its broken, and needs to be fixed. However, such people would be prized in the new america that is coming soon.

    Rise, Venezuela!


    The time is here, Venezuela! The time to wake! To rise, from your poverty! Too long... TOO LONG have we suffered! Have we toiled underneath the glaring sun, in this great and bountiful land. My fellow Venezuelans, this wonderful land has granted us many bounties; food, water... life.


    But it given us many other things; namely class inequality, strife, hunger; it is not enough! The greedy Europeans to the East; the woefully inadequate Columbians to the west, and the corrupt and bloated Brasilians to the south all rightfully belong to the PEOPLE! Are we to let the tyranny of the masses rule them? Are we to allow the people in those impoverished nations go without, as we have? As we still do? No, Venezuela. We will arm ourselves; we will build roads, and schools, and hospitals... not only in Venezuela, my dear comrades, but throughout South America. We shall spread the glorious revolution to all of those in need! No more shall children watch as their mothers starve, to give them a spoonful of rice! No more shall a mother and her unborn babe perish, from the beating sun and dry throat.

    Rise, Venezuela, and aid your fellow man; follow in the footsteps of greats, such as Marx, and help us LIBERATE the people from the tyranny of the masses!

    Sorry, I am going to have to drop out of this one.

    Germany is now free for someone else.

    General Álvaro Obregón Salido, el Presidente de México, in a speech to the Congress

    Esteemed members of this body, I bear sad tidings. It appears that the peace that has reigned in the Mexican State for the past years has come to a close. Adolfo de la Huerta, the minister of finance, has launched a rebellion seeking to take power in the Republic of Mexico. THIS SHALL NOT STAND! We must continue the stability and prosperity that have graced our glorious Mexican state since I took office in 1920! Huerta has decided to undermine said stability by grabbing for power, and selfishly trying to undermine the duly elected Government! Therefore, I ask this assembly to band all members of the Huertan Rebellion illegals and guilty of High Treason for undermining the stability of the state.

    Gentlemen, with this move, Huerta has finally revealed his true nature- that of a warmonger, a defiler of the people. Let this be a lesson to all such men! You feel free to practice your vile obsession, but not in the Peaceful and Glorious Republic of Mexico! It shall not stand!

    I'll take Germany. I always wanted to see if I could run the Weimar Republic into the ground faster than history.

    You know what, I'm switching from Australia to a party.

    Combined Syndicates of America
    Yes, I'm ripping off Kaiserreich. Deal with it.

    Seeking to bring the worker's revolution to the New World, the Combined Syndicates (CSA) was founded to advocate syndicalism, where the economy is guided by collectivized trade unions. However, the party has since become a general front for all types of socialists and communists, including famed figures such as Eugene V. Debs, and has grown with increasing popularity throughout the Midwest and even into the Mid-Atlantic and New England. While still peaceful, there is increasing calls from within the party to start thinking of a more radical solution...
    Flag: I'll get it up eventually, but look at the flag on this for now:
    Spoiler :

    Headquarters: Chicago
    Leader: Jack Reed
