Alright, cutting out the Populist stuff simplifies some coding stuff a bit, so that's a relief in some ways.
Also! Had a fit and got an idea for a partial Crimson Skies-y division of Argentina (intruding on Bolivian and Paraguayan territory a bit, too):Patagonia
here has its basis in Argentina's Patagonia rebelde
, which was a period in Argentine Patagonia's history when left-wing miners and right-wing government officials were fighting each other for years on end. This Patagonia, then, is ruled by Communist miners, has a beef with La Plata to the north, and sits on a wealth of minerals and oil.La Plata
is Argentina's equivalent to America's Columbia. It's the remnant of Argentina's government, still focused around Buenos Aires, stuck in Martial Law mode (historically Argentina was ruled by a series of president-generals during the '30s anywho) and upset at everyone who left glorious Argentina.The Union of Santa Fe
is a marginally more-democratic state, created by a coalition of northern Argentine politicians. The provinces of Córdoba and Santa Fe seem like they were the focal point of opposition to the generals' rule in Buenos Aires, historically, so having them be idealistic chums-in-coalition makes some sense.The Chaco Republic/Gran Chaco
is based in the Gran Chaco
. There was a war here
during this period, but having the region devolve into warlordism and cussed regionalism sounded like a Crimson Skies-y sort of thing to do when I tossed it in the game to see how it went.
Canon CS material says practically nothing about South America aside from gold in Peru or Brazil or summat, right? Shouldn't conflict with anything there, hopefully.
