    2003-2006: Labastida Baits the Bear
    As direct conflict with Russia seemed inevitable with each passing day, the federal government and Mexican public continued their trend towards cooperation through the rest of President Labastida's term. Even small changes to decry autocracy were made by civilians, such as Santa Anna's conscious decision to rename the city after democratic hero President Pio de Jesus Pico instead of the militant Santa Anna.
    Spoiler :

    By the end of 2003, Mexican agents were launching major endeavours against Russia. Members of the M.I.B. were stationed across the globe gathering intel, but the most intensive efforts were in the Russian heartland. Over the course of the year, information gathered by spies was released in the Moscow Report, which detailed the various abuses of power Russia used to keep its satellites and its own civilians following relatively strict restrictions. The report was made public, leading to an international call for intervention and denial from the Russian Prime Minister. Though Labastida massed troops in Funchal in preparation, he declined to take official action, deeming it "an issue to be resolved at election time".
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Not all in the Republic pointed towards warfare and devastation. In Cuba, a new strain of gem mines had been established on the island, bringing new industry and tourism to an island that's plantation economy had long ago collapsed.
    Spoiler :

    On the stage of global diplomacy, the President received validation for his anti-Russian ambitions when Mexico was once again elected to lead the security council. Such politics showed that even if the world's nations did not back intervention directly, their sentiment was with Mexico.
    Spoiler :

    Further espionage soon showed that Mexico had little to actually fear when conflict came: the Russians were still years away from reaching Mexico's level of military advancement, and were more interested in developing anti-nuclear measures than combative weaponry
    Spoiler :

    By 2005 the Synarchist cartels had fully adapted to be criminal enterprises operating in Mexico's poorest districts. Their raids in the countryside on simple farmers to create protection rackets helped bring attention the poverty many Mexicans still lived in thanks to a wage gap: something social programs couldn't fix. Many progressives such as former candidate Doctor Roger Bartra blamed a focus on international politics over domestic issues for helping to extenuate such conditions. Labastida decried such a view as overly sentimental, and that it removed too much agency from the willing criminality of fascist gangs in the nation, who continued to be hunted down by military level policing.
    Spoiler :

    Fascists and sociological progressives weren't the only people frustrated with the centrism of Mexico's current leadership. LGBTQ communities, still ignored, began staging massive displays demanding equal rights and freedoms to other citizens, if Mexico was as "free" as it claimed to be.
    Spoiler :

    Gay pride presentations in Mexico City, 2005.

    Despite these issues, satisfaction overall with the Labastida regime was at an incredible regime. In another televised speech, the President himself congratulated the people of Mexico for their support and involvement in the system, believing under their watch democracy would be safe for years to come.
    Spoiler :

    Much of 2006, like with the previous year, passed quietly, but not free of the sense of slowly building tension between the globe's greatest powers. In Russia, the government began cutting off the internet's connection to a world wide web to protect their own interests, an act other nations decried. In that year's Russian election to select Prime Minister, however, experts from the United Nations saw no evidence of fraud or corruption, with the new Prime Minister Vadim Bakatin (a hard nationalist and conservative) appearing to have been fairly and popularly elected by the people, despite his autocratic tendencies.
    Spoiler :

    Prime Minister Vadim Bakatin during his time as Grand Marshal of the Russian Army, 1998.

    Laser technology, seized by Mexican agents from Russian scientists, may have contributed to Russian conservatism. The advanced lasers, however, would give Mexico yet another power: defenses from missiles, more advanced artillery and even simpler acts such as precision surgery.
    Spoiler :

    Meanwhile, Carlos Slim, a Mexican businessman from Guatemala rose to international recognition when he was declared the richest man in the world, having earned billions beginning as a weapons manufacturer for the Synarchist government and now becoming a conglomerate owner, with sizable political clout.
    Spoiler :
    Rest in piece photo, I wish you were not lost.

    As President Francisco Labastida ended his first and only term in office, Mexico was strong: made stronger by a massive British trade deal weeks before the election. The possible devastation of war, however, threatened how long that strength would last.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler Note From the Author :
    Gonna take a day or two before putting the election up, worked on this for like 6 hours today and I need a break LOL

    You can order 3 candidates from top choice to bottom choice, been doing that a while.

    YpuYou also voice whether atomic weapons should be used with Russia. Sorry if unclear!

    Allow nuclear weapons only when necessary, and/or whenever you feel like it. You know what, nuke your heart out. Have a little fun with it. Oh, it’s a yes or no question?
    Yes

    2006 Election: Results
    Winner: Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador: 9 (38%)
    Francisco Labastida: 6 (25%)
    Vicente Fox: 3 (13%)
    Leamado Negril: 2 (8%)
    Esther Orozco: 2 (8%)
    Maria Fromow: 2 (8%)

    With a surprising win, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador becomes Mexico's twenty-fourth President, and brings major change with him!
    Spoiler :

    President Obrador playfully gestures at student voters during the election.

    In one of the most politically diverse elections in Mexican history, the socialist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (lovingly known as Amlo by many of his younger supporters) having taken a strong lead that has in turn earned him the presidential seat. Eager to obtain a majority backing from the Mexican population, as well as restore the party system as his campaign promised, Obrador has founded the Socialist Democratic Union, and has extended an offer of coalition to former President and second-place candidate Francisco Labastida. Labastida, with the promise of an influential cabinet position, has accepted, turning the newly founded S.D.U. into a big tent dominant party.

    Meanwhile, the Mexican military and even civilians remain on edge despite a smooth transfer of power. War is coming, and though public opinions on nuclear weapons are divided, all know it will not end quickly.

    2006-2009: World War, Part One
    To prepare for war, and switch to more socially-conscious policies, President Obrador needed to start his time in office with some drastic changes to the national budget. To curb costs, most operations of the M.I.B. on Mexican soil were shut down (besides anti-Synarchist cartel efforts), and thousands of employees of the secret service were let go.
    Spoiler :

    As 2007 began, AMLO's government got off to a strong start with the passing of the "Total Equality Act" into Mexican legislation. Under the act, all genders, races, sexualities, and any other unchangeable deviation of identity are to be guaranteed equal treatment in the eyes of the law, forever. As a major win for the LGBTQ+ of Mexico, and for all minorities in the nation, pride celebrations were held across the country for weeks after the declaration.
    Spoiler :

    Immigration policy was also quickly lightened to go along with the extreme tolerance of Obrador's socialist regime. Soon, many immigrants were travelling to the country for its promise of security and happiness.
    Spoiler :

    As several months went by, President Obrador's confidence in the security of his rule began to raise, finally leading to an official warning directed at Russia. The Republic of Mexico demanded on March 5, 2007 that the Russian Federation release its forceful grip on modern-day vassal states.

    The Russian Prime Minister flatly refused the demands, caring little for the threats of consequences.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Before Mexico could make good on its threat of repercussions against Russia, there were still many other domestic affairs for AMLO to attend to. A "Welfare Omni-Bill" drafted by the President and his closest advisors in order to provide "cradle to grave" care for education, limited food, health care, and even subsidized, affordable housing for the poor or homeless. Though lambasted by conservatives, much of Mexico backed the act as a natural extension of existing programs, though a major government slowdown was necessary to implement the changes.
    Spoiler :

    Much of the welfare bill focused on providing for the same working-class labourers that were at risk of turning to far-right politics or synarchism, and the housing often centered in regions like Santa Fe heavy in these factory-worker populations. A factory fire in Rapidos that would have normally put over three thousand employees out of work for a year or more was even mitigated with government funding to swiftly rebuild and keep the workers paid.
    Spoiler :

    The wave of reform, so accepted by the general public, continued. Just in time to prevent upcoming profiteering, the arms industry in Mexico was bought out by the large government surplus, and restrictions were placed on private weapons manufacturing.
    Spoiler :

    Weapons manufacturer, 2009.

    As the likelihood of war seemed more likely, with Mexican troops operating drills in Funchal while transport vessels prepped for departure, the Spanish Krai took the lead in anti-Russian resistance, overthrowing the foreign oversight. Soon, a defensive pact was arranged between Spain and their former colony, with plans to crush the Great Bear.
    Spoiler :

    Then war arrived.
    Spoiler :

    May 3, 2008; the Republic of Mexico declares war on the Russian Federation for failing to heed their warnings to grant vassal states fair democracy. The newly independent Republic of Spain joined Mexico, alongside smaller forces from Mexico's protected states of China, the United States, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, the Philippines, Mali, Poland and Peru. Russia, already marshalling the largest army in the world (if less advanced than Mexico's), was joined by France, Canada, Austria and Portugal.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    The only real front of the war, despite the number of players involved, would be Russian home soil. The Mexican Army was ferried for a naval assault right on Saint Petersburg: an unprepared city, as Russia had expected a naval attack through the Black Sea. If Saint Petersburg were to be taken, Moscow would hopefully follow quickly. The pressure on every front due to Mexico's large alliance network, however, would keep Russian troops spread thin and disorganized.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Russia responded to the assault with devastating outrage. A tactical nuclear missile struck Polish countryside, small enough to leave little fallout, but large enough to kill over 8,000 people and destroy a nearby airbase that had housed Mexican planes, as Russia hoped. Meanwhile, Canadian troops began raiding across the border to disrupt hometown ranchers, but were swiftly dealt with.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Despite the cruel response, Saint Petersburg still fell after a few weeks of fighting. The size of the Mexican force, coupled with air support, made the unprepared, nearly water-locked town an easy target.
    Spoiler :

    While the Mexican army carried on its war against the Russia, the Federal Police were pushing their war against Synarchist crime into full force under the President's encouragement. Thomas Garcia was the powerful leader of the last major cell, The Children of God, and had been evading an arrest warrant for nearly two decades. Thanks to an insider tip and cooperation with Colombia, he was captured off the coast of Guatemala in November, effectively ending the Synarchist cartels for the time being.
    Spoiler :

    Garcia arriving in Mexico City for his trial, 2008.

    The war effort also brought about the development of new technology due to government-sponsored research. New stealth bombers were like something out of a science fiction novel, and helped to display Mexico's clear lead on the world stage.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    As 2008's summer waned, the march on Moscow began, with reinforcements joining their ranks. Other troops split off to hit Vologda and keep the Russians on their toes.
    Spoiler :

    Winter struck sooner than expected, delaying the assault for several months. As snow thawed and 2009 began, however, the attack on Vologda was launched. The siege, executed by a Colonel Eiza Lopedo, was a complete disaster. Foot troops were forced to cross cold riverwater as tanks and artillery were caught in the mushy early spring mud. Artillery fire from Russian defences only made the terrain more impenetrable. Sheer numbers combined with air support and mechanized infantry eventually overwhelmed the defence, and the city was taken, but at heavy cost.

    2009-2012: The World War, Part Two: A Final Challenge
    The siege of Vologda had made the upper eschalons of the Mexican military nervous, and General Isobel Rodriguez de Yara, the highest ranking military officer in the nation, felt obligated to fly out from Mexico City to conduct the rest of the war effort from Saint Petersburg.

    General de Yara made the right decision. The ensuing capture of Moscow would be one of the most successful battles of the war. Russia may have had an army larger than Mexico's in numbers, but the various fronts left it stretched out, and their capital city was under-defended. Using scattered aircraft runs and false camps to divert Russian artillery fire, allowing for the Mexican armoured units to roll into the city with minimal losses. Providing cover for foot soldiers and mechanized infantry, it was just a matter of hours after the tanks entered city limits before it was officially captured, as the remaining defences were soon destroyed. Moscow, once called the Third Rome, had fallen... though most government officials had long fled.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Even domestically, the war effort was going strong. President Obrador had continued to fund the development of a satellite defence interface to shoot down enemy nuclear missiles, and in 2009, Santa Fe and the Mexican space program launched it. The Russians had lost their last desperate weapon: the atom bomb. The war, for some Mexicans, seemed already won.
    Spoiler :

    The Russian army had entered into a disorganized panic. Chinese officials reported mass desertion alongside the Chinese-Russian front, while many troops acted without orders. One Russian destroyer led an unprompted attack on Mexican Pacific islands, shelling several resorts and fishing vessels before being unceremoniously sunk by the Mexican Navy.
    Spoiler :

    The last major Russian city in their core territory, Kiev, fell by the December of 2009 with relative ease. Russia had now been globally humbled, and their remaining defenses were a disaster.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Mexican tanks roll through Kiev, 2009.

    Over the course of 2010, more essential cities including Rostov na Danu and Samara fell to the Mexican offensive. Russia was on the rout, with even ceremonial horseback police units attempting to fight off the Mexican army.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    During this period, the first stealth bombers finished their test flights, and were sent to the front, making Russian anti-air technology almost useless.
    Spoiler :

    By the end of the year, Russia's grip over the governments of Canada and France had collapsed, with both nations shaking off Russian authority and arranging treaties with Mexico to pull them out of the conflict. Though France held hints of autocracy in its governance, both nations were filled with celebration, and the world saw a major win for democracy.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    That sense of pride and victory extended to Mexico itself. AMLO's approval rating continued to soar higher and higher while careful investment had allowed an economic boon despite war; to many historians, Mexico had entered another golden age.
    Spoiler :

    Mexican troops continued their march, deeper and deeper into Russian territory. For the leaders of the Federation, it had been enough. On January 1, 2011, Russia requested peace talks be made.
    Spoiler :

    The Treaty of Berlin (chosen for its neutrality in the conflict) was signed on March 1, 2011, ending the war. Russia was subject to many conditions in exchange for continued autonomy and peace. Disarmament was essential, with a hard limit placed on the nation's standing army. Austria and Poland were to have their governments freed of Russian intervention. The most drastic terms, however, involved ceded territory. Mexico was to maintain control of Saint Petersburg until 2021 as a base in the region, while Kiev and the Ukraine was placed under the oversight of their cousins in Poland indefinitely, while some of eastern Siberia was named Chinese, Mongolian and even Iranian territory. Finally, the Republic of Rostov was given its independence; the region's heavy Muslim population gave it a distinct cultural flavour, and also undermined Russian power indefinitely.
    Spoiler :

    Spoiler :

    The celebrations in Mexico continued. Soldiers, away for several years, returned home as heroes to their families, and soon a baby boom began as husbands and wives "reconnected".
    Spoiler :

    Technology kept its forward march as superconductive materials entered widespread manufacturing post-war, with limitless possibilities to improve the capability of electricity.
    Spoiler :

    This is not to say that the world post-war was one of sunny days and constant happiness. For much of the summer of 2011 Saint Petersburg was enveloped in constant destructive riots led by Russians who demanded the restoration of home rule and the Federation, which nosy, hypocritical outsiders had taken from them.
    Spoiler :

    Once things were calmed by regulation and policing, things quieted down. AMLO, happy to rest on his laurels, kept government running smoothly and "without news-worthy developments" until the end of his term, confident in his successes as both a president, and arguably a hero.

    I think that's clever using the Byzantines to make the "Republic of Rostov."
    Keep up the good storytelling, man.
