Flag of Chile Chile is a country in South America

occupying a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean. It borders Flag of Peru Peru to the north, Flag of Bolivia Bolivia to the northeast, and Flag of Argentina Argentina to the east.

Historical background[edit]

After having its economy plummeted by the Great Depression, and after a long period of political instability which was riddled with a series of coup d'etats, democracy was finally reinstated in 1932, placing Arturo Alessandri Palma as the President of the Republic of Chile. With an economy heavily reliant on the export of raw resources, primarily saltpeter, its economy suffered heavily with the invention of synthetic nitrates, which was aggravated with the beginning of the Great Depression period, during which Chile's GDP dropped to about a third of its value, thus plunging the country to poverty. After a 1932 coup by the Socialist Party (Partido Socialista), democracy was reinstated only 12 days after the coup, and Alessandri's task as the head of the newly reinstated Liberal Democracy was to get Chile's economy afloat by stimulating copper mining and agriculture, while also upbringing the national industry for supplying it's population's needs.

Population[edit]

In the 1936 scenarios, Chile starts with a population of 4.29 m and, due to the Volunteer Only conscription law, it has 64.45k total manpower. Its used manpower is 48.26k with 36.00k being employed by the Army, 360 by the Air Force and 11.90k by the Navy. This leaves a meagre free manpower of 16.19k.

In the 1939 scenario, Chile has the same population as in 1936, with roughly 4.29 m core population. It still starts with the Volunteer Only conscription law, giving it the same number of used manpower, but the Air Force is now employing 1.40k, which leaves it with 15.15k free manpower.

National spirit[edit]

Flag of Chile Chile does not start with any national spirits in 1936 nor in 1939.

  • Army Effort gives army experience and research bonuses to army research.
  • Aviation Effort gives air experience, builds air bases, and research bonuses to air research.
  • Naval Effort gives navy experience, builds naval dockyards, and research bonuses to navy research.
  • Industrial Effort builds civilian and military factories (usually even if building slots are already full)and grants extra research slots.
  • Political Effort gives the country choices on which political path they will take.
