Macau, on December 20 1999, was transferred from Portuguese control to the Chinese. Edmund Ho was put in power as the Chief Executive of Macau.
After Shanghai was nuked, China was put on high alert. Chief Executive Edmund Ho went on an emergency meeting with Chinese President Jiang Zemin. Two surface-to-air missiles managed to destroy the two missiles heading for Macau and Hong Kong, but all the capitals of the Chinese provinces were hit, including Beijing. All contact with the Chinese government was lost.
Macau dipped into chaos for the first few days after Y2K. With food shortages from contact loss and electricity outages due to generator overloads, hungry families and looters roamed the streets. Murder rates rose one thousand percent, as resources became extremely low. The 500-strong PRC Garrison of Macau sent themselves on a mission back to former Guangdong province. Only 195 returned healthy, 57 sickened with radiation poisoning, and the rest of them dead. The 195 who were healthy, returned with thousands of fruit and vegetable seeds, and hundreds of pounds of fruit. The latter 57 died within the year.
Military Junta Transition
The Macau Security Force, in an effort to restore order in the densely populated area, installed themselves as the new Military Junta government over a week-ling per. The Director of the Public Security Force, Chan Sam, became the head of state, and the Head of the Police, Lei Peng, became the Prime Minister. In order to stop the still prevalent crime rate, a shoot-to-kill policy was implemented for any crimes seen by the Security Force patrols, which is still in place today.
Contact with Balkanized China
On February 14, 2000, what normally would've been a day of love and compassion, began like any other in a still chaos-ridden Macau. With blood. Even with the shoot-to-kill policy, Macau rioters still managed to overpower the Public Security forces. Director Sam and PM Peng were getting desperate. They needed to find out if they could get help from other countries, if there were any other countries.
Late at night, around 11:09 PM, contact with the fledgling country of Manchukuo was made. Wei Ai, a perennial candidate in the old Manchurian capital of Changchun, had become the new president of this revitalized republic. PM Peng asked President Ai for military assistance against the rioters. Manchukuo complied, and said they would be able to send their leftover reserve forces within the month.
On February 15, Macau declared independence from the former People's Republic of China.
