History Post 1900
The CoLA Years
In 1904 Mexico applied for membership of the Confederation of Latin America or CoLA. Mexico had supported the Dominican Republic's attempt to annex Haiti from the start, and knew that to succeed it needed allies. The strategists reasoned that Mexico would not find help in Europe, and that any attempt would meet with near vassalisation. So the government turned to the three year old, promising Confederation.
The Glory Days
With CoLA knowhow and financing the government began a program to provide basic Education and Healthcare (creating state run school and healthcare systems) as well as industrialising rapidly.
Mayan Rebels in Yucatan Received notification that the government wished to enter negotiations, to which they eagely responded. Talks were surprisingly short, lasting only two months, at the end of which the state of Yucatan was given semi-autonomy, modeled on Britain's Dominions. The new state was named the 'Mayan Republic of Yucatan'.
Mexican Civil War
Started: 2nd July 1907
End: Continuing (In Game)
In January 1908 the US invaded Mexico stating their aim to be to " end the civil war and bring peace and prosperity to Mexico." Since the Martinez Line was unmanned the army was able to sweep in from California, Texas and New Mexico. However both the rebels and the remnants of the government saw this as a falsehood designed to allow a expasionist land-grab. With supreme haste the fighting stopped and the fractions banded together to defend what, despite disagreements over how it should be run, everyone saw as their homeland.
By January 1908 and despite calls from Great Britain to step down, the USA had occupied the northern states and was finalising plans for the invasion of Mexico City. In the northern states, fierce resistance had begun with large scale guerrilla warfare being raged. Meanwhile in Mexico City, preparations had begun for a long seige. Conscription was introduced, with most people sanctioning it, riding a wave of patriotic fever. Defensive lines where dug and adding to the cities defenses became a hobby among many. A few dedecated souls even devoted their entire free time to it. Hospitals were restocked and Warehouses filled with food.
Troops from New Zealand Landed in the south, to stop the shaky coalition of fractions from falling apart. They also provided Humanitarian Aid and set up refugee camps.
