Official Thread: Socialist Union Of South America

Recommended Posts

(Spartan Games edit)

 

With so many sub-forums and threads, we're trying to give the Spartan Games Community a bit of a tidy-up. Let's try and keep to the official threads and see how we go.

 

Who are the Socialist Union of South America?

 

When Karl Marx first published the Communist Manifesto he had hoped that it would ignite a revolutionary spirit in its readers. Little did he know that the place in which his ideas would be so enthusiastically taken up was Latin America, and for reasons which were far more pragmatic than the high-minded revolutionary principles he espoused.

The Socialist Union of South America, usually known as SUSA, grew out a of melting pot of fears, ambitions and hopes that swept across South America in the years between the fall of the Spanish and Portuguese empires and the rise of the United, and then the Federated States of America to the north. The then Democratic Union of South America (DUSA) was formed in 1837, in response to the US annexation of Mexico. It was initially a shaky organisation, riven with difficulties and disagreements between its Portuguese, Spanish and native inhabitants, and weakened from the outset by the refusal of the late Simon Bolivar’s Gran Colombia to the north to join or support it – mostly because of the DUSA’s Portuguese majority population. However the Union acquired a new sense of purpose when the great Italian patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi arrived in Brazil with a company of followers during the 1840s. Garibaldi fought for the DUSA’s government against the autocratic regimes holding power in Uruguay and Paraguay, which disregarded their peoples’ wish to join the new Union. Garibaldi returned to Italy in 1848, as liberal revolutions broke out across Europe. The DUSA, however, did not take long to decay. Corruption became endemic, and in time the Union became just as bad as the autocracies it replaced.

To answer the thread question. In the new book Hurricane Season the situation in South America is explained somewhat to the point you know pretty much what is going on. I can say that Chile and Argentina ( what was not sold to the EotBS) along with Dutch Guyana are indepedent. We don't know for sure who makes up the SUSA.

My stupid thought of the day:

I think it is assumed that in SUSA speak Spanish. Have you ever stopped to think how says SUSA in Spanish?

 

Unión Socialista de Suramérica --> USS

 

or (both are correct)

 

Unión Socialista de América del Sur --> USAS

 

Too  yankee!! :D

Well... for the brazilian population of SUSA, that they speak in portuguese:

União Socialista da América do Sul --> USAS!!! :D

 

PS: up the subject: Spanish Republican Confederacy (SRC) in Spanish is: Confederación Republicana Española (CRE)

 

 In Portuguese you can also say União Socialista Sulamericana (USS)...

Hopefully this nation will be revealed next. I am extremely curious about them. From what i read in the new rulebook they are some kind of good damage dealers so maybe they got some big nasty guns? Or strong turrets? Special weapons?

 

Statswise i guess that they have lots of AP but only conscripted type(lots of people available but lack of education and training).

Morale is probably rather low due to corruption and disunity.

As it seems they have lots of extremely strong guns.
