Through its centuries-long history, Brazil has been ruled by many different government systems. Notable periods include a constitutional monarchy (1822–89) and a military dictatorship (1964–85). The latter was an anti-communist regime supported by the United States during the Cold War, while the first was a mostly stable and prosperous Empire that allowed press freedom. Of course they were both complex (as every government is) and had multiple good and bad points, but what if things went different in history so that a combination of the two came into being?

In this alternate scenario, Dark Brazilian Empire is the nickname given to the Great Empire of Brazil, a Cold War-era absolute monarchy that existed between 1957 and 1991.
