History: The CSA, established after a two-year long war, saw the rise of a second faction led by a monarch. After the first contact with the Unknowns on the surface of Earth in 2012, the fragile order in South America quickly fell apart. Eagar to capitalize on its fast-growing economy and strengthened military after the 2008 financial crisis, Brazil quickly declared war on its neighbors and began conquering them. With most of the other South American countries weakened after the financial crisis of 2008, Brazil made quick work on Bolivia, Paraguay, Uraguay, Suriname, and Guyana. However, fierce resistance was met at the Argentinian and Peruvian borders as the remaining South-American countries banded together. While international news medias focused on the aggression of Fabiano Beclchoir Vieira, the Brazilian president, another powerful force was working in the background. The Alvarez family, South America's wealthiest family, was thirsty for more power. Fabiano was just a loyal puppet from a branch family of the Alvarez family that gave many high-ranking positions in the military and government to the Alvarez family prior to the war. The Unknown Invasion was just the perfect reason for Brazil to start a war that it was preparing for years. However, after the first few initial success from the Brazilian armies, the remaining South American countries were able to fend off Brazilian attacks. With lowering morale due to wartime doctrines and a failed assault on Argentina's capital of Bueno Aires, Carlos Justo Alvarez, the head of the wealthy family, decided to shake things up within Brazil. With control over most of the government and military, Carlos stagged a coordinated coup-d'etat, killing Fabiano to claim the presidency for himself. With actual control of the government, Carlos rewrote the constitution and changed the democratic rule into a monarchy. The large shake-up didn't help Brazil's military operations, however, as continuous failures in massive operations caused the war to drag on for two years, with no major changes to the demographics of South America after Brazil's first few attacks. Fortunately for the citizens of South America, a new threat appeared on the horizon that forced South America to unite together: the United States of North America. While South America fell into civil war, North American countries quickly banded together to form the USNA. After two years of the South American Civil War, the USNA decided that they should unite the two Americas through military forces. Realizing that they would fall if they don't stand together, the remaining South American nations decided to call a temporary truce to face the USNA. As a small fleet of USNA warships neared the coast of Colombia, the UNSC suddenly jumped in to suggest peace talks between the United States of North America and a united South America. A temporary government was quickly drafted and named the Confederation of South America in order to begin peace talks. Negotiations were successful, and the "invasion" was called off. With their common enemy eliminated, it seems the South America was about to be engulfed by another war. However, Carlos Justo Alvarez, monarch of Brazil, suggested to created a diarchy under the name of the Confederation of South America. Knowing that Brazil will someday break down the remaining South American nations, the heads of state agreed with the monarch's plan. The diarchy, consisting of a monarch and Congress, established a constitution that dictates that the two parts would rely on each other instead of warring against one another. On April 4, 2015, the Confederation of South America was officially created, led by monarch Carlos Justo Alvarez of Brazil and Prime Minister Nicolas Russo from Argentina.
