    1938-1944: Defusing Tensions
    Shortly after securing control of the Presidential office, Horatio Kobayashi began to restore a more traditional status quo. The free market was released from total control, and Mella's plans for assigned careers and prices were scrapped. President Kobayashi did, however, maintain government control over several major industries that he deemed "necessary"; munitions, key manufacturing such as steel and, most importantly, power-plants and electricity. Despite this, he held onto the funds seized by the Communist Party from antiquated landowners. Though largely keeping things under control, even Kobayashi's reasoned approach could not maintain total peace. The remaining militant supporters of Mella and the Communist Party battled constantly against police, soldiers, and other civilians, made only worse by active protests from the right-wing of Mexican politics continuing to spiral. With tensions high, the President declared a State of Emergency, attempting to keep the peace while the government suffered through a near total shutdown.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Meanwhile, the Synarchist Union of Dakota still loomed in the north, leaving Kobayashi with a major dilemma. President Elan Vital, if left unchecked, could establish his regime strongly unless dealt with soon. Kobayashi, however, needed Mexican troops to help maintain the peace and lead raids on the most violent Communist rebels, and chose instead to wait for further stability in Mexico before taking action against Vital.
    Spoiler :

    By early 1939, the Russian Empire was finally beginning to buckle under the weight of its own size, made only worse by the Mexican trade embargo. Russian officials had long assumed direct governorship over much of Spain, but were forced to finally secede the entire peninsula to autonomous rule under a satellite government due to the ever rising costs of administration. The Great Bear's age was starting to show.
    Spoiler :

    The riots across Mexico lasted for years, but it did not mean President Kobayashi was completely inactive. Though protests were slowly dying down as the army pacified whatever dissidence it could, with most arrests leading to imprisonments rather than executions, as ordered by the President. Additionally, foreign relations were still very much alive, including a newly signed defensive pact with the Republic of China.
    Spoiler :

    By fall of 1940, the tensions had finally subsided. To the surprise of many, no bloody uprising had begun. The cautious use of police and military, accompanied by public exhaustion, had allowed Kobayashi to build up a seemingly stable peace. To continue to show good faith and compromise, the President pushed the "Billy-Club Act" into, law which disarmed Mexican police to match with the largely unarmed civilian population.
    Spoiler :

    A Mexican officer, surrendering his firearms, October 1940.

    With the economy slowly starting to recover, President Kobayashi was once again able to increase the nation's research spending, using the large surplus to even justify running at a temporary deficit. The fastest way to recovery, in the eyes of the Socialist Party, would be for the nation to push for scientific advancement harder than it had in years.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    This was followed by an aggressive stance taken towards changing the world and building good faith towards the Mexican Republic. The Mexican government organized various humanitarian missions, led by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Felipe Puerto. Experts were sent to various undeveloped countries to provide medical and scientific knowledge, and democratic movements were also funded or supported. Most of these missions were sent to South America, Africa, and Southeast Asia, though a few visited Eastern or Southern Europe as well.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    With all affairs in order, the final reunification of Mexico could begin. A non-explicit state of war had existed between Mexico proper and the Dakota Union since the revolution began, and soon the army was preparing to strike at Dakota proper, which lacked the defenses of their affiliated New Orleans.
    Spoiler :

    By late next year, the minor town of Rapidos was once again in Mexican hands. Less than two thousand synarchist soldiers had been defending it, and, when faced by the full might of nearly one hundred thousand professional Mexican soldiers, many fled. The rest of Dakota would likely prove a similarly minor challenge.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Over the next year and a half, the "Dakota March" would prove to be a resounding success. Though the Union infantry would put up a dedicated resistance, they were ultimately no match for the training and numbers of Mexican troops, especially when facing the expert Rurales divisions, and deadly strikes by airships. By 1943, Minneapolis was seized, and President Vela was forced to admit his surrender. He would face charges of treason, but was granted a thirty year sentence instead of death. New Orleans, though uncontested, peacefully returned to the Republic, as its leadership knew their defeat would have been inevitable.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    As Kobayashi and his economic advisors had predicted, the new period of peace had allowed the economy to grow further as recovery led to demand. Soon, the national deficit was running as profit once again.
    Spoiler :

    By the end of 1944, a temporary national peace seemed to have been restored. After twelve years of conflict, Mexico City stood once again as a modern metropolis atop the world. Though many Communists still resented the Kobayashi regime, the growing distaste for extremism from the general populace, and a fair crackdown had kept them under control. On a similar vein, most extreme synarchists had been killed or arrested during Dakota's capture, leaving the more peaceful members of the movement leading the way. It seemed, for now, that peace had been restored.

    Hmm, it is odd that the Socialist Party would go so far as to completely restore Capitalism and Free Markets

    Sadly, the civic options in CIV4 don't allow me to show democratic socialism in such a nuanced light :p Think of it as them relinquishing total state control of the economy while still spending heavily on social programs and nationalizing. Inherently, socialism and capitalism aren't exclusive... it's just hard to show that with what's available.

    Though militant communists have been cracked down on, and Mella imprisoned, the Communist People's Party has been allowed to continue under President Kobayashi, now led by Tomas Tulles.

    Yes unfortunately. I would like to point out, however, that actual Socialism and Capitalism are incompatible, though the Free Market and Socialism are not. It is best not to equate a market economy as being the same thing as a capitalist economy.

    Sorry, poliscience is one of my favourite things :D

    Tomas Javier Tulles. I'd say their revolution ended too quickly. Let's bring back some support. After all, the bourgeois wishes to go back to suppressing the working class. To this end, they assassinated Magon forcing our heroes to step up and stabilize the state from this terrible capitalist onslaught! :evil:

    For my next round of anarchy, I will vote for the Synarchists as soon as they become more militant than they are now :p

    Sorry to have missed the last election, but civfanatics seemed to have decided to not alert my of any new posts in this story. As I didn't check the thread proper, I was already worried the story might have died. Anyways, I vote for Doctor Octavio Paz (who seems to be called Pamplona, according to your chart :)), some peace might be best for Mexico at the moment.

    Nonetheless, in time I'll probably support a synarchist revolution, civil wars are just much more interesting for the story than peace.

    There is never enough trouble! If you ask me, this communist revolution was a bit stillborn as shown by its quick end. We must keep it going and going and going...and going and going and going! :D

    President Horatio Kobayashi wins a second term in office!
    Spoiler :

    Mexico City on the day of Kobayashi's victory, 1944. One of the first widely circulated color photos to originate in Mexico.

    President Kobayashi, after a successful first term in office, has been selected by the people of Mexico to serve in the office for a final six years. Surprisingly, in a break from the Mexican norm, there seems to be minimal dispute or outrage over the results.

    The most outraged by the victory of the moderate socialist happens to be the furthest left of the nation, such as the anarchists and (few remaining) militant communists. Many under these factions view him as a traitor to their movement and to the people's revolution, but since the crackdown they have held a weaker and weaker political voice.

    The majority of Mexicans eagerly await the President's next term, and the stability it promises.

    1944-1950: A Spectre Looms
    Though President Kobayashi had done great work stabilizing Mexico during his first term, the rest of the world remained in a much more volatile state. Many world powers were in a constant state of conflict with another, and the Republic of Scandinavia was no exception, as part of a massive coalition that had taken interest in crushing Colombian-Argentinian expansionism. As part of this, they requested that Mexico take part in the war as well. President Kobayashi declined, believing the war would be concluded soon regardless and the expenditure of Mexican lives would be a pointless waste.
    Spoiler :

    On January 1, 1945, Lorenzo Jaz, a military engineer, debuted the first prototype military aircraft. Experiments in flight had been going on for over fifteen years and limited public air travel had started partway through Kobayashi's first term. Now, however, these flying machines could see application in defense and warfare. As more aircraft entered production, Mexico became the first nation to organize a dedicated Air Force, and a military air base was soon underway in Mexico City, alongside a civilian airport.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    The rise of air travel by plane only seemed destined with the Guerrero Disaster later that year. The NZ #7 Guerrero, the commercial zeppelin for which the disaster was named, exploded due to a cheap use of the wrong gases to inflate the balloon. The disaster allowed Kobayashi to push new regulations through Congress and to nationalize the air travel industry, raising the safety and commonality of air transit. Though planes were beginning to rise popularity, the new regulations and lower prices helped to keep dirigibles in style.
    Spoiler :

    By 1946, the first military fighter planes were rolling out, ready for test flights and practice runs. Due to their smaller size and faster speed, the military zeppelins were soon retired and replaced by more aircraft.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Hoping to build a network alliances for the looming conflict with Mexico's rival on the world stage, the Russian Empire, Kobayashi continued to take interest in developing democracy across the globe. Republican rebels soon seized control of the Ottoman Empire due to Mexican funding, declaring a Turkish Republic, and a defensive pact was signed between the President and the Shah of Iran.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Mexico seemed prepared for open war with the Russian Empire, but things were soon to change. Agents in Spain soon sent word to the government that new machine guns were being mass-produced by Russian arms-makers, putting them at a level of weaponry far above the rifles currently used by the Mexican Army, throwing a wrench in Kobayashi's plans. Before Mexico could war with Russia, they would need to be a military counter.
    Spoiler :

    In 1947, the well-known architect and artist Juan O'Gorman made a surprising turn into government employ. A proud supporter of the socialist regimes and anti-imperialist, he proved an effective designer for more advanced firearm engineering, which had already been a personal hobby, which helped rush Mexico's path to countering the Russian war machine.
    Spoiler :

    Though Mexico was still years away from being ready for war, several fighter brigades were stationed in Belgrad under permission from the Turkish government, their official role being to protect the "integrity and stability of the rising democracy".
    Spoiler :

    Soon, recon the fighters were launching recon missions through Russian ruled Ukraine and Italy, terrifying the local populace and finally beginning to clue in the Russian Emperor to the fact that a conflict was inevitable, and he might not have all the cards on his side.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    The war would once again be delayed by unforeseen circumstances, however. In the summer of 1949, in a bid of desperation, the Colombians and their Argentine allies declared war on the Mexican Republic, mistaking previous kindness for weakness. The army was rapidly mobilized to secure Panama in case of attack, and the navy and air force were deployed to test out new bombardment tactics on Colombian soil.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    During the stormy winter months of early 1950, the first air strikes by the Mexican air force caused chaos and confusion in Colombian cities, hitting military bases with minimal collateral damage. Civilians, however, were terrified, and morale rapidly dropped. The Mexican army soon moved forward as well, cutting through jungle routes to cross the Colombian border.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Soon, new manufacturing techniques and industrial plants sprung up as Mexico transitioned into a full war economy, with armoured tanks and machine rifles to rival Russian models entering mass production. Aluminum, a once ignored metal, soon found use as a handy, light-weight manufacturing material.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    The first true battle of the Colombian war was at sea, at Bridgeport Harbour on May 3, 1950. Seven Colombian ironclads set out for the island, hoping to disrupt and potentially seize it, until the ARM Comonfort swept in to intervene. The Mexican destroyer handily destroyed the enemy vessels, showing how outclassed the Colombian military was once and for all.
    Spoiler :

    To the people of Mexico, victory against Colombia was inevitability going into the 1950 election. But in Europe, the spectre of imperialism still held strong, with conflict soon to come.

    With two terms under his belt, President Kobayashi is no longer eligible to run for office, and has started the practice of ineligible president naming their "chosen successor" who they would like to follow them.
