History

The cultural, political and social roots of the present day Aztec National League started with the Meso-American city-states that reigned unchallenged from eastern powers from antiquity to the early 1520’s. Over a tumultuous and frequently bloody millennia, by the 1520s, the individual city-states were somewhat autonomous, despite being required to pay tribute to the dominate city-state of Tenochitilán, which was ruled by the Nahua tribe. The peoples of the region, however, were almost destroyed by the arrival of the Spanish in 1521. Despite suffering massive casualties and enduring plagues, the Meso-American city-states were successful in repelling numerous European invasions for reasons that are not clear today. Legend recalls god-like beings in a small but wondrous blue machine visiting and either on purpose or by accident leaving information about the invaders. Regardless, the Nahua tribe eventually gained a position of almost uncontested rule after decades of European invasions and of internal infighting reduced other rival powers to irrelevancy.

After their experiences with the Spanish and soon discovering the equally-threatening French and British forces, the Meso-American city-states unified under the banner of the Nahua Empire. After repeated exposure to Europeans, the native peoples were able to reverse engineer a number of European technologies to augment their own. The Nahua people were able to balance the odds against them and maintained sovereignty over their lands and expand north and southward until the disastrous effects of both the American-Nahuatl war in 1840 and the American Civil War. By 1848, the United States was able to conquer all northern Nahua lands above Mexico and nearly lost Tenochitlán. Similarly, the Civil War ruined the Nahua economy - although officially neutral, the Empire had numerous business interests and trading agreements with the South – upon the Confederacy's defeat, many, if not all, Nahua assets in the American territories were confiscated. This, and the inability of the Nahuatl government to do anything about it, seriously undermined the credibility of the Empire. Short of options, the Empire disbanded in an effort to allow each individual state to stabilize its economy.

This period of instability and disunity continued on until the 1920s, in which many individual states began adopting socialist policies in the hopes of countering the social inequalities among the individual states. Fearing that this trend towards socialism would lead to the foundation of a full-blown communist state, the upper classes successfully pushed to restore the monarchy and national military on the agreement that the national government would embrace some of the social justice precepts popular with the socialists. Due to both sides respecting this agreement, the newly formed “Aztec National League”, enjoyed a long period of prosperity despite being involved with numerous small-scale skirmishes with western and eastern powers alike. Regardless of these tensions, the Aztec National League is well suited to take on the challenges of the unfolding 21st century.

Natural Hazards

Current Environmental Issues
Air pollution from heavy industrial sectors and automobiles, urban and farm run-off, skyrocketing population and industrial demands, deforestation, land erosion, inadequate infrastructure to meet full demands on population, pollution due to heavy mining presence, water pollution.

Economy

The economy of the Altepetl is the dominate economy in the local region and easily lends itself to the role of being a major player on the world state. Currently, the nation enjoys a hard-earned trade balance surplus, though it has been achieved by restrictive tariffs and massive government subsidies to domestic private industry. Although officially market oriented, the economy is largely dependent on the public sector. This dependence has grown exponentially within the last fifteen years, to the point where the government’s role in the economy has overshadowed the private sector. Much of this growth has been due to the massive growth in education, healthcare and social welfare programs, largely spurred by the increase in popularity of leftist and socialist parties. Similarly, the monarchist establishment has greatly increased military spending over the decades, resulting in a very large budget deficit. Although currently the nation has the ability to continue on with this expenditure model, the tax rates for the nation are among the highest in the world, certainly making all sides of the political spectrum unhappy. As part of a scheme to find alternative funding mechanisms and discourage excessive growth, the government has begun massive implementation of Pigouvian taxes in lieu of traditional regulation. Although it is difficult to tell if this scheme will be successful, it is highly doubtful that it will cover the entirety of the budget debt.

10th year Corollary

Postby Aztec National League » Tue Sep 24, 2013 10:08 pm

Note: This particular post is entirely an OOC retrospective:

Hey, it's my tenth year NS anniversary! Hopefully, this will be a jumping off point for the next ten years. In any case, I've written some thoughts about my time on NS and why I want to come back.

So, ten years ago today, I was bumbling around on a Star Trek gaming forum and came across a year-old game called "NationStates" where you could create a free web-based nation based off of whatever you wanted, no matter how ridiculous or non as you whims may be. As someone who had idealistic, passionate feeling on politics and society, I was instantly hooked - the chance to live vicariously in a world tailored to my own liking? Besides, I needed something to escape being a high school student in the early 2000's! For a good couple of years, I was logging on hourly long into the night, checking to see if there was any response to my posts, my declarations, my troops movements, to me.

But then life seemed to get in the way. I went to college, and while I was faithful to NS for several years, I felt a disconnection. Then I got elected to student office and got to work in the political milieu. Eventually, checking went from hourly to being daily; daily to being weekly; and so on and so on. Eventually, my nation was deleted some time back in 2008 or 2009 for inactivity. Though I revived it almost immediately, the badge of my nation's birth was replaced with a mere reference to being formed in "Antiquity", only indicating that my nation was formed some time before the current forums, before Jolt, when NS hosted its forums the first time around.

Despite that revival, I've never felt able to get back into the hunt; something was different. By that time, I felt I was well on my way of living the live that I was writing about in NS. Not only that, but many of the players of my generation soon went the way of the dodo and into oblivion. I didn't feel a connection like I did before. Today, that feeling persists, but I still have the desire to play NS, wanting to explore new facets of my nation - both light and dark, that come with my own personal growth and experience. Sometimes, I catch myself escaping into my mind, perhaps two or three times a week, wondering "what would the ANL's leader, Quetzalcoatl Nochtli, do?"

So today, I decided to get out of my mind and put the pen back to paper, so to say. Maybe this is won't be the beginning of a new golden era for my nation. Certainly, working more than 40 hours a week isn't conducive to NS. But who knows - I always felt that my nation and my characters were in some form an extension of myself. Maybe in playing NS, I can find old traits of myself that I thought was lost. Maybe I could realize something in me that I didn't notice before. Regardless, I know one thing is certain - I need to come back, even if it's for a short while. I could try to pick up from where I left off, and for the most part, I am. To just do a gritty reboot and start from scratch wouldn't feel right. But, perhaps what I need is a different approach to the old story. A different trajectory, you may say...and thus the story begins again.
