The President of Northern California Louis Pittankel again dispatches a note to the Bay Republic to join Northern California. The note was rejected and Pittankel declares war on the Bay Republic.
Beginning of the Invasion
On June 14, The invasion of the Bay Republic begins, with Northern Californian soldiers entering southern Mendocino. Some soldiers take up the flag of Jefferson, to which many far northerners affiliate. The North Californian ship R.C.S. Alex Mercer blocks the entrance to the bay and the R.C.S. Modoc prepares to shell the city of San Francisco. North Californian foot soldiers captured the city of San Rafael after intense fighting with the Bay Republic's militia forces, followed by San Mateo eight days later. Travis Air Force Base also fell, allowing North Californian MiGs to launch air strikes on Oakland, Alcatraz and Treasure Island.
Assassination of Virgil Baal and Jeffersonian opposition
Later, a group of radical northerners successfully assassinates Virgil Baal, the leader of the Bay Republic. The California Freedom Party is founded in Northern California. The party calls for an end to war in the region, neutrality and for the creation of a free democracy known as Jefferson. The party gains a small following among soldiers and those living along the border. Protests occur across the southern border of Northern California. As a consequence the California Freedom Party is founded in Northern California. The party calls for an end to war in the region, neutrality and for the creation of a free democracy known as Jefferson. The party gains a small following among soldiers and those living along the border.
CFP coup and Pittankel's quasi-Nazi dictatorship
An interim government-in-exile in formed by the Californian Freedom Party leader Mark Robinson in Seattle. He calls for a revolution in Northern California to end the regime of Louis Pittankel. Many took up to the streets in protest against him and called for his resignation. By this time Pittankel can no longer contain his anger, so he stepped he declared a state of siege in the country, not knowing that a coup d'etat is on the way, staged by CFP-backed officers. The coup failed, and Pittankel signed the National Security Enabling act into law, bringing the Californian Republic to an end and marked the rise of the Greater Californian State, with Pittankel as their leader. He planned a large-scale invasion of the Bay Republic, occupying its northern half in no less then seven months, with an army of 1.3 million soldiers. A heavily-edited version of Star Wars was also released in theaters, in an effort to glorify his regime. However, the regime establishes the Bear Guard, a highly trained elite force that is the regime's version of the navy SEALs and uses them to terrorize the Bay Republic until they surrender. Continuing the invasion of the Bay Republic, North Californian soldiers finally captured Sacramento.
Black Hoods terrorism and the shelling of San Francisco
The Black Hoods continued to terrorize San Francisco, Oakland and much of Contra Costa and Marin counties. Meanwhile, Bay Republic citizens began fighting the Black Hoods on the streets of San Francisco, provoking command on the R.C.S. Modoc to shell the city. After a costly invasion naval invasion the Northern Californians are pushed from San Francisco. The invaders initially landed near the city by sea, and were trapped in a near trench warfare style stalemate for weeks. Both sides suffered heavy casualties, on the outskirts of the city, which was constantly bombed by the RCS Modoc. The BRS Good Omen, which was severely damaged, leads a fleet of privateers against the Northern Californian fleet, engaging the withdrawing ships, but sinking in the process.
The Bay Republic asks its allies Cascadia, Alaska and all the members of the Pacific Co-operative Organization for aid in the Californian War. As a result Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone sends aid to help the Bay Republic, a member of the Pacific Co-operative Organisation, against North California. But the Fascist regime in Eureka denounces Japan's action, being a far-right nation opposing another far-right nation. The Interim Government in Seattle, led by Mark Robinson, asks Cascadia to help the Jeffersonian rebels on their fight against Pittankel.
Rise of the Transitional Committee
An interim government was by the rebels known as the Transitional Committee of California, led by Ronald Reagan. He encourages to defeat the fascist regime, and restore democracy.
However, the Californian Unification and Anti-Zombie Expeditionary Forces an offensive to liberate the California Desert Region from the Zombies and establish the client states of Mono, Inyo and Fresno-Tulare. The Desert Republic was created as an interim client government controlled by the CUAZEF and the Civil Emergency and Defense Agency to administer the cleared area and disinfect survivors. It extends from the eastern border of the Bay Republic to the OTL border of California. Insurgents rose up in Butte-Plumas province, but they were able to cut a pathway, the so-called 'Moses' corridor', in Butte-Plumas province to send supplies and basic needs to the settlers of the Desert Republic.
Black Hoods Crisis and Pittankel's Disappearance
Despite the Northern Californian attempts to use the Black Hoods to aid them in battle, they have proven to be uncontrollable. A half dozen soldiers were killed after one allegedly lost control. Across the front similar incidents begin to occur. It is pieced together that the virus hybrid has mutated or matured to the point where it has overtaken the human host, turning them into a feral monster. In February of 1987 Pittankel disappeared from public view. Some said he committed suicide in his safe house; others said he fled to Texas. However, Bill Edwards, succeeded Pittankel as Caudillo. He corrected the problem on the Black Hoods by appointing the health minister Dr. Francis Wood, the son of Communist dictator Albert Wood, to the premiership in March. He said that to correct the problem on the Black Hoods, he said that they should inject a limited amount of Phalanx to the hybrid commandos. He also manages to arrange a peace treaty with PCO, ending the war by June.
Fall of the regime
In February of 1987 Pittankel disappeared from public view. Some said he committed suicide in his safe house; others said he fled to Texas. However, Bill Edwards, succeeded Pittankel as Caudillo. He corrected the problem on the Black Hoods by appointing the health minister Dr. Francis Wood, the son of Communist dictator Albert Wood, to the premiership in March. But in 1988 the tide turned against them. Louis Pittankel's whereabouts were leaked by an insurgent spy to a group of TCC and Cascadian officers, who were planning a land invasion on the northern border. His whereabouts, acoording to the spy, who pretended as one of Pittankel's guards, said that he resided in a heavily-armed mansion not far from Montauge, in Siskiyou Province. A day later, a group of TCC partisans captured Louis Pittankel and his mistress, Anita Klaubarg. Some of Pittankel's colleagues managed to escape, but most of them were also nabbed by the partisans. Gen. Bill Edwards, the commander-in-chief of the facsist regime, was booted out from power due to a no-confidence vote by the National Assembly, now dominated by a coalition of the Californian Freedom Party and the Liberal Vanguard Party of California. After the no-cofindence vote, Prime Minister Francis Wood became provisional head of state for two days, until a bulldozer rammed open the gates of the Carson Mansion on February 17, 1988. The Great Californian State has finally come to an end.
