Gaius Atilia landed in a Ceylon controlled section of Chile near Santiago, his men were now landing in various locations in Argentina and Chile to begin the transfer of control. In total 165,000 men had been recruited to begin the power transfer but it rapidly became evident that the prediction on local recruitment had been extremely high. The region was devastated and most of the few that survived were completely unfit to even carry a gun, let alone fight with one. Gaius hoped this war would be over soon so that he could the region to its former glory.

Several miles south of Santiago, a massive wall had been constructed which ran clear across the co intent, separating the lower region of the once mighty Holy American Empire from its bloated carcass. Unfortunately for all involved, the border zone was manned and extremely prejudiced against outsiders. The Winter Contingency arose from the section of the empire which refused to pick a side. They had hastily erected a quarantine zone and in doing so barely avoided the fate of the empire at large. This remnant was horrified at the holocaust which had befallen the imperial genus, and resolved to stay within the confines of their much-reduced realm.

Incomers would be contacted by radio and warned off of the zone.

As Atilia's troops were beginning to arrive in the region, Ceylon's forces were slowly withdrawing, leaving supplies and some light weaponry for them. Food and medicine would still be supplied regularly, for free, until the newly rising nation had managed to repair or set up the necessary infrastructure.
A message was sent to Atilia upon his arrival.

"Welcome to South America, Mr. Gaius Atilia.
Hell on Earth, as far as we're aware. Please note that while we have managed to cleanse most of the region you are to administer of biological and chemical agents, there still are some remnants left. If you or any of your men notice or experience strange, unnatural diseases, notify us ASAP, please.
With that said, we will be withdrawing as your men secure the region, leaving supplies and some light weapons for you to use.
Medical supplies and food will be provided for free for the time being, until your nation has set itself up and stabilised reasonably. We're looking forward to working with you."

OOC: Since the SA front has not moved at all...

IC: Gaius found something new to amaze him every day, almost always it was about the sheer devastation of the region and how much work lied ahead of him. He had already begun ordering the rebuilding of Santiago and created an open door immigration policy, people flocked in as a result of a system mirroring the old Canadian prairies, the land was nearly free but it was only given on the condition that you had something built and were either residing in or working out of it within two years. The military was another popular region as it promised better land and a building extension on it to twenty years.

Gaius gave the rebuilding of hospitals, schools, police/fire stations, and electricity priority but was also sending vast funds into the construction of other utilities and general infrastructure. Many funds were coming from what the HAE had left behind, banks and other locations were stripped bare, bodies stripped of anything of value, behind the scenes Gaius operated a thriving drugs trade bringing further finds into the region. Construction industries flocked to the region and would find no shortage of work as projects continued to get piled on.

Gaius also ordered the less known construction of military infrastructure throughout the city including extensive underground tunnel networks across the city ranging in size from 4 feet wide and 10 tall to over 40 wide and 40 tall. The tunnels were surrounded by 1 foot of reenforced concrete and would have frequent choke points and steel doors which could be remotely or manually closed/opened. Above ground multiple buildings were slotted to be military posts disguised as civilian, under these buildings would be barracks' for the men manning the tunnels. The city would also be host to an extensive surveillance system capable of identifying a vehicle and the driver, entire crowds of people, or maintain constant surveillance of a designated person.

In other regions Gaius' men followed closely behind the Ceylon troops, often times engaging HAE men that had been missed in the first sweep. The devastation was almost universal but strangely seemed to decrease in the southernmost regions just before the region the HAE was building as wall on.

Gaius Atilia had taken control of the region he now called Neo Roma weeks ago but still had not been able to form a proper government. A temporary Senate building was under construction but Roma lacked the infrastructure to elect a proper government, instead Gaius maintained the title of Emperor until a proper Senate was elected.

The reconstruction was progressing smoothly and Neo Roma now reached it's full border extend but many pockets of resistance still existed further away from cities. These pockets were slowly being pushed back as the state slowly expanded further inland as people flocked the region in hopes of a new life. It would be many years before the region fully recovered but progress was slowly being made towards the rebuilding of the destroyed infrastructure.

Gaius Atilia looked over a rough version of the constitution that would guide the government of Neo Roma, it primarily stated the government jobs, their number, and roles.

Dictator -- Elected by the senate in times of crisis, a temporary position fill by a single person (selected from the two consuls) until the crisis is resolved. Until the crisis is resolved they have full and unquestionable authority and their actions while in this role may not be used against them after the position is terminated.
Consuls -- Commanders-in chief of the military and hold absolute authority over military affairs, may veto the others' decisions, may convene the Senate, may carry out diplomatic negotiations, and finally are in charge of carrying out the resolutions of the Senate. Two elected by the Senate every two years.
Praetor -- Commanders of the military, also form the highest level of judges in Neo Roma, four are elected by the Senate. One for army, air, navy, and intelligence.
Quaestor -- Responsible for the Finances of Neo Roma, two people fill the position, one by the Tribune and the other by the Senate and serve for four years.
Aedile -- Responsible for the maintenance of public buildings and regulation of public festival. Four people fill this position, two elected by the Tribune of the Plebs and two by the Senate and serve for four years.
Censor -- Elected by the Senate and are in charge of the census, maintenance of public morals, and watch over the treasury and taxes. Only a single person fills the role for a period of four years.
Governor -- One per province, handle the general administration of the province and are selected by the Senate for a period of four years.
Senator -- Elected by the land holding citizens of Neo Roma and may only be filled by holding citizens. In charge of making laws that deal with any element of Roman life including the raising of armies and going to war, able to veto the Tribune of the Plebs, smaller groups of 10 senators may form a legal court for any citizen of Roma, may only be overridden by a Praetor. There are 350 positions elected for periods of 5 years.
Tribune of the Plebs -- Elected by the non-land holding citizens of Neo Roma, may veto decisions by the Senate and resolve legal disputes among other plebs. There are 150 positions elected for periods of 5 years.

The rebuilding of Santiago was progressing well, the difference the last year had made on the appearance of the city was astounding, other cities were now rebuilding just as quickly but finally restoring the glory of the region would take years. Construction had already begun on turning the Neo Roma-Winter Contingency border into a fortress covered in small underground tunnels capable of being quickly infested by Roman soldiers so that the region could be turned into a long term guerrilla battleground. At the most Northwestern point of the province of Buenos Aires a small dock and building had survived (-34.014797,-58.395035), this region was to become the home of a small naval, army and air base to monitor all traffic entering and exiting the Rio Uruguay.

The rebuilding continues to move at increasing speeds as more people move into the region, the military was now scrambling for vehicles and men to man many of the military stations that were being built, the rate of construction had long since since passed the rate of recruitment so many bases were occupied by only a handful of soldiers instead of the hundreds or thousands they were built for. Despite the slow growth of the military Gaius announced a zero tolerance policy regarding imperialist expansion into South America.

Santiago once again looked like a city, more than two years of mass construction were finally starting to pay off, small skyscrapers were in the middle of construction as life began to return to the once devastated region. It would take at least another 5 years at the current rate to finally complete the reconstruction of the lands . The base monitoring the Rio Uruguay is finally complete but is expected to get a small expansion to complete monitoring of underwater movement so that nothing may enter or leave without the Romans knowing it. On the border to Uruguay a system of defenses to rival that of the one on the Winter Confederacy was underway, the defenses would also include a line of Dragons Teeth, hedgehogs, and AT mines to slow down any possible land invasion.

The first Neo Roman census has been published, the results were startling to many as they revealed a complete recovery of provincial populations, this was quickly followed by ending the gifting of free land to every applicant, while much rebuilding remained, the population had at least recovered.

Gaius finally announced the reformed army plans, giving the full organization of the military. Gaius further announced that Neo Roma has become what would be considered a nuclear breakout state, while Neo Roma does not possess any nuclear weapons the nation has completed nuclear ready devices as well as enrichment to 90%, should it be required Neo Roma is capable of becoming a nuclear state capable of firing missile based weapons in a matter of days. Neo Roma also completed work on an SDI network which will be fully in place shortly.
