Before 3509Before the Workers Party , ordered the Red Army to invade in 3509, Marada was controlled by many tribal kingdoms. The country was never united, and the tribes were always fighting amongst themselves in brutal wars. The Workers Party of Mandarr had had enough of the human right abuses taking place next to them so in 3509 the Red Army was sent in and put down the tribal leaders and formed local Worker Councils, loyal to the Party to rule the country.
Era of the Workers Party
After the party took control in 3509, its main focus was uniting the very religious and divided people of Marade. This happened through massive socialist education programs. Socialism gave the tribes of Marada a single uniting cause. A massive industrialization also took place. The Workers Councils developed many high value government collectives. Even though the Party reigned supreme for almost 30 years, the hindi faith still played a major part in the lives of everyday Maradans.
Era of the Republic
Since the fall of the Workers Party in 3540, Marada has been a unitary republic with multiple influential parties. The main parties that have been in power since 3540 have traditonally been left wing. The old UFSP and UTSP were the main parties in Marada. Since the UFSP and UTSP joined forces, the Socialist Unity Party has held a major majority in the country's congress. In the year 3565 the Mandarran Union was declared a Socialist Republic. This marked the beginning of huge construction projects across the Union. Thousands of miles of roads, schools, factories, and hospitals were built in Marada.
In the 3570s the Peoples Republican Party disbanded and the Socialist Unity Party gained a 100% seat holding in the National Senate. In the Marada Regional Congress the Unity Party also got an absolute holding during the 3570s. The Party passed many local reforms growing the Maradan army and economy. Starting in the 3580s Viceroy Hector Vazquez order large scale military build ups in the provinces. The Viceroy also ordered the Nuclear Defense Committee to send Nuclear weapons to all provinces in an effort to secure national interests. Soon after the Viceroy would disolve the Senate and form the Supreme Peoples Assembly in its place, this led to Regional Congress's being disbanded and regional Party Assemblies fromed in their place. Also in 3580 Vanessa Vazquez, the Viceroy's wife was appointed Prime Minister and Governor of the Provinces. The beginning of her term was focused on provinical infrastructre development and the stabilizing of the budget.
