The newly reformed communist Prussia of the United States after the Great Depression had a huge impact over society. It led to many wars, revolts, famines, and rebellions. It begun with the weak economy and labor unions.
When the Bolshevik Revolution took place in Russia, it overthrew the government and replaced it with a communist regime. When the stock market crashed in 1929, it sent the United States into the Great Depression. Seeing this as an opportunity, the Communist party has worked its way into the country. As the situation got worse, support for the Communist party grew. They began to hold rallies and movements. Little knowing Adolf Hitler was doing so while growing Fascism in Germany. They even worked their way into the labor unions, allowing for better work. In 1932, they began to hold political chairs in Congress, but never actually managed to get any recognition for it. They eventually put presidential candidate John Hilkins up for run against the slightly more favored Franklin Roosevelt. The amount of communist followers was growing rapidly, and eventually Hilkins just got ahead and won 54%-46% of the votes. With this, the Communist party slowly but surely took over the entire government. As this was done, they broke down the government and rebuilt the economy using their communist beliefs. It took about a year, but the newly called the United Socialists of America, or the USA re-established a new government. As this happened, they became great allies with Joseph Stalin in the Soviet Union.
After many years, New Prussia was doing well. Some parts of Canada and Mexico and the Caribbean joined into the USA, having to rename themselves to the People's Republic of the Union of Socialist States of Indigenous Americas, or PRUSSIA. This covered a lot of territory across North and South America. However, peace wouldn't last as the growth of fascism in Europe. this threatened what the communists worked hard for. In 1940, the Soviet Union was attacked by German forces. The USSR called for PRUSSIA to help them. They agreed, and declared war on Germany. Within just three years, World War II was put to rest and the world was once peaceful again.
Over the course of the years, communism began to take over the weaker countries. Western Europe became threatened and distrusted the Prussians and Soviets. They formed their Federation of Nations. As they kept to themselves, they became surrounded by communists. In 1955, a project was agreed by both sides to build a wall around Western Europe and parts of North Africa. This isolates the western countries.
Red Day and the Libertarian Movement
By 1962, John Hilkins died from a heart attack, and another leader was put into office by the name of Peter Sanderson. He loved the people, however he was more libertarian than anyone else. When news of this leaked out, Peter was forced out of office by the rest of the government, where he was to stand a public execution. He was killed just two months after being elected in. This sparked the rest of the secret libertarians to unite across PRUSSIA. Peter was replacd with Adrian Roshnir.
They met in secret meetings and even began to get some people into office. Without anyone knowing, the libertarian movement was already working its way into the ranks of the government. However, it doesn't take more than a few years before people begin to realize that libertarians were getting into the government. On October 12, 1969, the District (aka DC) was surrounded by Soviet forces. They stormed the buildings and took out everyone. They put bags over their heads and tied them up. They had them line up in front of the front steps of the Capitol and slaughtered every single one of them, including the communist representatives. Any civilians watching were executed too. The Soviets took the dead bodies and hung them outside the capitol as a reminder. A total of 1,600 people were killed that day.
After what the Soviets did, the Prussians became distrusted of the Soviets, as they had just killed off rightful leaders. As they continued to be allies, the united countries of Europe were preparing a defense around the entire perimeter, in case of an invasion.
The Battle for Ican
Ican was a small territory owned by west Europe that had no defenses, except a police force of two thousand. In May of 1970, a huge gold mine was discovered by Afrijonkins Jiurjir, who gave the gold to the Federation to help boost their economy. Knowing what will happen, the Federation supported Ican by building up a defense for the territory if ever attacked by communist forces. Furious, Prussian Leader Yeriof Waterson sent in 18,000 militants into Ican. The now three thousand strong police force battled their way to keep the men out. The battle lasted just one month. In July of the same year, Prussian forces retreated out of Ican. Seeing the Prussians as cowards, the Soviets sent in 70,000 men and wiped out the entire defense. Ican was now under communist control.
The Federation saw this as a possible threat against their ideals. Only four days after the annexation of Ican, the Federation went to fight the Soviets in Ican. In the winter of 1972, the battle ended with a tie, and both sides drew out of Ican. The territory officially was the first battle since the uprising in Germany just thirty year prior.
The Space Program
Throughout the 1970s, both sides were creating missiles for both nuclear power and astronomy uses. The Federation sent the first person in space, Gary Urnisted in October 15, 1975. The communists answered by sending up their own person just a year later. The Federation were now in a space race. The Soviets then sent a person to the moon in 1977. The Federation responded by sending their own person to the moon in 1980. By now Mars was in sight, but the focus was resolving the conquest of conflicting ideologies.
