repressive, made significant political advancements. Comrade Emperor Franco was lauded byhis subjects, his people, his fellow Comrades as not only a revolutionary, but also a truly brilliantvisionary. While the rest of the world found refuge in democracy, The Pacific was ruled by ameritocratic system that would later become known as Francoism. Class conflict wracked theother feeder Pacifics, brought on by outside agents from user-controlled regions. It should benoted as a credit to Franco and his system that though it was attempted many times, his reign andthe Order itself were never destabilized by outside forces. When they were discovered, Useriteoperatives, jealous and desirous of The Pacific’s peace, prosperity and strength, were ejected and banned from the region. The Userites were so bent on destroying all that Comrade Franco andhis fellow revolutionaries had fought for that The Pacific’s ban list was miles longer than anyother region’s. Comrade Emperor Franco was ever vigilant, ensuring the safety of his fellowComrades. In the midst of this Pax Pacifica, a nation called Warrior_Thorin made himself known as a servant of the Order. Another nation, The New Duce, was appointed Senator andwas given command of the military of the Order. He proved to be a brilliant tactician and wasinstrumental in several key defenses of Pacifica. Also making himself known was SirPaul. He began spreading the truth of the revolution and the Order through his unbiased news reports.Many Userites saw the errors of their ways and allied themselves with Franco and the NPO after reading SirPaul’s manifestos.At the heart of the Revolution and the Order itself was Comrade Emperor Francos Spain. No one knew Franco better than Imperial Vanguard Unlimited. Indeed, few were closer to thefrontlines of the August Revolution than Comrade Unlimited. In his own words, ComradeUnlimited tells us what the early days of the Order were like. [I]”
The Order was obviously anincredibly exciting place to be during the immediate post-revolutionary period. Despite having ahostile world on our doorstep the Pacifican community managed to create a new type of society,moving away from the inane pastime of other regimes into a true bastion of intellectual and cultural development. In this way the Revolution was not only (as it was seen among counter-revolutionary groups) a political revolution, but also a cultural revolution -- a class revolution. All of this was, of course, ignored by the majority of the day, who saw only what they termed a ‘dictatorship’.”[/I]
When asked about his fellow August Revolutionaries, Comrade Unlimited gives us this intimateportrait: [I]“
All had their own unique traits, of course. Comrade InfernoIce was famously quiet, for example, while Comrade Bertram was less so. But their main attributes were shared, which is why they came together under the Pacifican banner rather. They all had the vision to see the classcontradictions inherent in their homeland, the compassion to want to do something about it, and thestrength, skill and knowledge to play key roles in the overthrow of the old regime. Their individual strengths and personalities may have been different, but it was the use they put them to that said most about their character.
”[/I] From this, we take the fact that Franco’s way of living, his politicalsystem, the New Pacific Order itself, is for all people who are desirous of improvement. It is not forthe advancement of a select few, as the previous regime’s government had been. The NPO stood forthe advancement of all people, regardless of any former distinctions. When asked about his friend andmentor, Comrade Emperor Francos Spain, Unlimited reveals to us the truth of the man as he was, notas the Userites demonized him. [I]”
The first thing that struck a person about Comrade Franco wasalways his charisma. Few men have had the ability to make you sit up and take notice of what wasbeing said as Comrade Franco had. But this is a broad term. His charisma came from his obviousintelligence and vision, while being able to convey it in a simple fashion; showing you complex contradictions in societies and institutions in such a simple and logical manner as one could not helpbut agree. He took great strength from those he served, and made great personal sacrifices in order to advance their lot. He faced up to global smear campaigns without flinching, so long as he knew hewas doing what was right for The Pacific and her people. And this is perhaps the greatest testament tohis time at the head of the Revolution he embodied. This may sound like I am describing a hero froma book rather than a real person, but it is an accurate account of the man, and he was no less that man in private than he was in public. I describe him as a hero because he truly was.
”[/I] Surely it is atestament to this great man that we carry on his legacy even today!
