Mundari joined the Mandarran Union in 3515 and was the 3rd territory to do so. In the year 3510 a stable republic collapsed in Mundari, and a fascist government rose. After many humanitarian crises, the old Mandarran Workers Party ordered the invasion of Mundari. After a short bloody war, Mundari had become the 4th state in the old USWR and has been with the Union since.
Fall of the Workers Party
When the Workers Party collapsed in 3539 a wave of reforms swept the Union. Nationalists came to power in Revolution Center. Soon after they enacted austerity reforms that economically crippled the nation for almost 20 years. Soon after there was a major socialist recurrence and Viceroy Linda Vazquez was elected. Mundari saw a dramatic increase in the number of private collectives and the size of the military. After Viceroy Linda came into power they also saw an increase in welfare and social services. It was during this time that tourists from Ruthenia introduced Mundarians to the Orthodox religion. It soon caught on fast in Mundari and as of 3580 over 10% of the population is a member of the Orthodox church.
Era of the Unity Party
After 24 years, Viceroy Linda Vazquez would succumb to a stroke and be succeeded by her son Hector Vazquez in 3575. Under his rule Mundarians saw an even more dramatic increase in infrastructure development, military spending, and Mundari received its first nuclear deterrent. Soon after the Viceroy would dissolve the Senate and form the Supreme Peoples Assembly in its place, this led to Regional Congress's being disbanded and regional Party Assemblies formed 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 provincial infrastructure development and the stabilizing of the budget.
In the 3590s during the rul of Viceroy Hector Vazquez protests broke out across the Union, including Mundari. Protests in Mundari grew violent when Nationalist shot into a Unity Party crowd, soon after all forms of public protest, and the carrying of firearms were banned.
