Falklands Federation

Falklands Federation
“Desiderare Bonum”

Federal Republic with Liberal Democracy.

The current international climate has caused much criticism among current party officials, Senators and the people of the Islands for the continued view of isolationism from the rest of the world. The recent disappearance of a liner carrying dignitaries of the Kingdom of Camelotia, including the Federation’s ambassador, has encouraged greater cooperation with the parent nation. The other side of this is overall skepticism of the northern hemisphere. Many citizens would already consider themselves at war but nobody, leaders or otherwise, can really agree on whom. What is certain however is that continued support with Camelotia remains well within national interest.

The government is formed by elected Senators who handle the everyday running of government tasks and low level law passing. There are 120 seats in the senate.
The higher levels within the senate are the department heads. Of whom 12 exist.
The government also consists of Mega-Corporation CEO’s whose seats can vary upon what percentage of the company’s gross profit is donated to the government’s treasury. This enables the company to choose between economic actions or government choices. This entices businesses to work closely with the government to produce jobs and increase profits to gain more leverage in government decisions whilst not having overwhelming power within the senate. This creates a huge state driven system that encourages local economic growth and commercial power. The maximum input percentage is 18% with one seat being applied for every 2% of Proffit granted. With the seat buying system being based on gross Corperation profit before tax, most Mega-Corporations can afford only 4 seats at the most which total up to 20% of the entire voting performance of the senate.

The nation:
The industrial backbone of the nation comes from Patagonia. It has been riddled with mines, quarries, rigs and mills to create the maximum possible output of material. The four sectors are monopolised by three mega-corporations. The ‘Raw to Core’ act of 1927 enables the government to buy resources from these companies at a set cost per annum. This level of government control of material enables direct government control over the largest contributors of its commercial economy. This move has made massive opportunities for the mega-corporations that form the Federation to expand. This expansion is fueling the commercial pressure to push for control of all South America and greater trade connections with the northern hemisphere.

The Armed Forces:
The nation prides itself on the use of maximum firepower for as little investment as possible. The admiralty found that the use of submarines was the best way to convey this naval philosophy. No need for huge resources being spent on armour plate if projectile fire is out of the question. Because of this specialist use of submarines, technologies surrounding submarines are under constant research and development cycles. This does however mean that the Federate Navy tries to avoid combat strategies that revolve around Capital ships as the Federation does not own any. The flagship of the fleet tends to be the newest submarine armed with the newest technologies.

The land campaign finds great use of medium tanks which can be used in just about any circumstance on patagonia. The army shares the admiralty’s opinion upon high firepower to investment ratios, and so uses many small calibre naval guns and AA guns as armament for the cavalry division.

Due to the geographical situation of the federation, The federate Air Arm (FAA) are specifically used in a defensive manner. For this reason, high speed interceptor craft, medium bombers/torpedo bombers and long range flying boats are the only aircraft both built and used by the Federation.

[size=medium]The History
The initial British colonies landed on the falkland isles in the 17th century whilst the Spanish conquistadors invested in taking south america. With later wars between the Spanish and the british, the Falkland island became a useful staging point to conduct raid upon the Spanish colonies in South America. The constant wars kept the Spanish colonies from flourishing whilst the near constant support from the early british empire put the Islands in a position of self dependency. When the plagues hit europe, the news of the great dying moved just ahead of the virus itself, the islands declared itself quarantined and purposefully cut itself off from the europeans. It is here when the independence of the nation was first founded. The nation re-emerged in the 18th century to find an abandoned south america with very few scavenging groups barely holding on. It was felt by the British Empire that because of the lack of Spanish involvement in south america following the plague, that there was very little need to re-acquire the falkland islands and instead was felt that a supported independence would favour more for both the empire and what would become the Federation.

The royal navy always found a welcome port in the Federation throughout the 19th century whether it be as a staging post to engage south bound fleets, to gather intelligence for naval operations or just for resupply purposes. At no point has there ever been bad blood between the parent empire and the young state.

In the later half of the 19th century the nation branched out into Patagonia and found huge iron, oil, and coal deposits as well as rarer metals like tungsten, copper and silver. A huge effort from both the government and private ventures worked into tapping into these resources to push the Federation into becoming the most economically robust nation in the southern hemisphere. The private companies in Patagonia have worked into becoming a cornerstone of the government architecture. Now almost 70% of Falklanders either live or work on Patagonia to some extent.

In 1913 a U-boat came into harbour declaring asylum from the royal navy. As the Federation wanted to retain neutral status within the now fully fledged war, the asylum was accepted. The catch for the germans was that the U-boat had to be handed over to the Federal fleet. The engineers completely disassembled the boat to unlock and improve upon for their own designs. These vessels would become the staple of the federation fleet and it was felt that having a large group of assassins in the water would keep any nation from thinking of hostile intent towards the federation. The sheer paranoia kept the Falklands from being attacked in the later stages of the great war just because no fleet admiral was prepared to run a fleet down the gauntlet that had become the south atlantic. In the following peacetime, the federation has worked upon perfecting their silent service into becoming an evermore dangerous force; rehearsing attack plans and developing wolfpack tactics.
