Federation of the Americas (Federación De Las Américas) is a political, economic, and military union of North American, Central American, South American, and Caribbean nations. It was established in the wake of the First World War, Centralization efforts of the continents Key Powers, and the necessity under the Great Depression.
The Federation formed as a result of Economic necessity and political want between South Americas nations. Initially in the midst of a rivalry, Gran Colombia and the Empire of Brazil (and its Argentinean ally) came to a detente following the revelation of the rigged elections of Gran Colombia.
Unable to be sure how long this had been going on many Gran Colombian citizens overwhelmingly voted a party willing to speak with and cooperate with Brazil. This eventually led to Gran Colombia's inclusion into the Southern Alliance, a series of treaties establishing close political and military ties between nearly all nations on the continent. This Southern Alliance was considered a non-threat with only Brazil being seen as the competent military power in South America. The rest of the world's great powers disregarded this development.
By 1931 the Southern Alliance had made enough economic headway through the Great Depression that Federating was seen as a necessity to save the continent from permanent destitution and failure. The Federation had officially been expanded to include nearly every single nation on the Continent and it slowly began policies of forming a cohesive national culture, body and many other centralized efforts.
Initial Push into Global Politics
Following the formation of the Federation most pertinent and important information did not leave creating an information blackout on the Federation. considered a failed state and destitute much of the world ignored the nation who spent the next 12 years building up and centralizing many of its industries, armed forces and economic systems.
The Federation in 1943 following some minor diplomatic missions to various nations, and establishing friendly contact with Germany and Japan, launched Operation Salvation a massive surprise assault on the United States. The Operation was widely successful as many US military leaders refused to take the threat seriously only to see modern warships, carriers, battleships, and a well supported marine and army force.
Operation Salvation is considered a wild success with the Federation, not only pushing the US mostly out of the Caribbean but pushing the US clear back to their Border with Mexico who had been involved in a brutal slug out with the US for two years.
The Federations success against the United States brought their public support for a war the people were initially unsure of, to an all time high. The War effort redoubled and Germany and Japan looking to exploit the new weakness in the Allies began allowing the Federation to manufacture military equipment for both nations as well as purchase natural Resources.
The Federation intervention onto the Axis side, however, shifted the controlling political landscape of the Axis towards the Mexican Empire and Federation who had not only fought the US to a Stalemate, but had prolonged the war and saved a flagging Germany and Japan
End of the War
With the Fall of Germany in 1945 and the Death of Hitler, the Federation took clear advantage of the situation evacuating any German scientists and Technology it could before the Soviets and United States could get to them. While not getting all of them, a good amount of Scientists were moved back to San Salvación to work for the Federation. Coincidentally the United States and the Soviet Union took the rest of the scientists as predicted.
With the only major abroad Axis force remaining being Japan, the United States wishing to avoid escalating the Home front offered to make peace with the Federation and Mexico and recognizing their strategic gains. In exchange they would both cease all support for the Japanese Empire who had been holding their own thanks to material support from its American Ally.
Three years later in 1948 the Japanese Empire collapsed following two nuclear detonations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Just after the bombings Korea revolted in mass erecting a Democracy and inviting in US forces to get that nation onto its Feet. The Federation had solidified its power indefinitely against other Great powers abroad.
The Federation of the Americas is a federal presidential constitutional republic, based on representative democracy. The federal government has three independent branches: executive, legislative and judicial. Executive power is exercised by the executive branch, headed by the President, advised by a Cabinet. The President is both the head of state and the head of government. Legislative power is vested upon the National Congress, a two-chamber legislature comprising the Federal Senate and the Chamber of Deputies. Judicial power is exercised by the judiciary, consisting of the Supreme Federal Court, the Superior Court of Justice and other Superior Courts, the National Justice Council and the regional federal courts. The Federal Constitution is the supreme law of Federation. It is the foundation and source of the legal authority underlying the existence of the States and the federal government. It provides the framework for the organization of the government and for the relationship of the federal government to the states, to citizens, and to all people within the Federation. The seat of the federal government is located in Santa Salvación.
The Economy of the Federation is largely industrial with a lesser agricultural economy as well. The industry is well into working towards being a rival to the United States and is one of the largest industries in the world, as well as a Global leader in a few domestic industries - particularly oil. The economy of the country has undergone steady growth since the formation of the country and during the construction of the new capital it slumped moderately. The Federation does also maintain a large Military and arms industry, as well as a emerging auto industry.
The Economy maintains its major growth with the exploitation of all member states less settled areas and turning them into resource exploitation or industrial areas. Paraguay and Northern and western Brazil have been the major sites of large exploitation and development during the previous years which has remained in the creation of the Federation. The Poverty problem has also been solved as the Brazilian government managed to migrate major amounts of people from favelas to new jobs and better housing in the Amazons and various other areas. The problem was solved in various other areas as well through similar means or other job creating policies.
The Federation military is the main force which is used in the defense of the Federation of the Americas. With a strength of nearly 1.5 million and possible expansion, The Federation is the largest Armed forces in the Americas.

The Federation Army is the land arm of the Federation Armed Forces. The army has fought in several international conflicts, mostly Abroad In the 20th century. Being a large scale Resource mogul and the largest amount of resource extracting businesses and contracts worldwide, the Federation as a highly complex and dynamic military system geared towards protecting those interests. The Federation currently maintains most policing operations in South America, Eastern Europe, and the Central and South Atlantic with army forces deployed to many of these areas to prevent large scale civil wars and outright genocides. Domestically, besides facing Integration issues the Federation has remained supportive of its allies, and is supported by the Elites of Brazil, and the Aristocrats of Argentina with big international capital backing various private development interests. While the Navy seems to get more focus the Federation army is still relatively well outfitted and thanks to sub-contracting, relatively cheap source materials, and the exportability of many of the armies developed weapons the Federation army is one of the most well armed on the planet capable of going toe to toe with nearly all Great powers and having vast superiority of many others.
With a force of about 400,000 in active service with more actively in reserves, the Federation maintains one of the largest armies on the Planet and focuses heavy emphasis on a combined arms doctrine. This doctrine comes heavily from a German-centric training basing most of its tactics off the Blitzkrieg strategic of WW2 by Germany but strives to maintain general operational superiority over many military forces and military Parity with the United States.
The Equipment of the Federation that is maintained is also considered relatively on par with most other great powers but in some cases sacrifices extra quality for the convenient quantity in manufacturing capability.

The Federation Air Force (Portuguese: Força Aérea Federação, FAF) is the air branch of the Federation Armed Forces and one of the three national uniformed services. The FAF was finds its roots in the Brazilian aerial system when the Army and Navy aerial branches were merged into the air branch were merged into a single military force initially called "National Air Forces". Both air branches transferred their equipment, installations and personnel to the new force. which by the formation of the Federation began the integration of all joining members air forces. The Federation Air Forces nearly equal to in personnel and equipment type to the United States of America and thus it cannot be differentiated which is larger. it is widely believe however the the Federation Aerial forces are just a bit smaller than their North American Counterpart. Using highly technological aircraft the Federation Air forces along with lots of competitive small and medium business choices (which make more profit with military than civilian) get relatively cheap aircraft which allows for their numbers. The Aircraft are shown to be top notch and have notably held their own against the British Royal Air Force and in many cases beaten them in their prime.
