Narcotic States of Colombia

The Narcotic States of Colombia is a nation located on the Western coast of South America. It is currently ruled by Pablo Escobar, who is a drug lord turned Dictator due to the previous leader disappearing under mysterious circumstances. It currently is the second largest nation in South America, and is known for expanding dramatically after annexing both Ecuador and then Peru in the early 20th century. It has been known to cause several conflicts in the South American continent, especially with it's neighbor Bolivia. The leader maintains active relations with it's other neighbors, most prevalent with Brazil and Mexico. It currently is in a ceasefire with Venezuela, and has received both monetary and military aid from both the Soviet Union and United States of America.
The nation began in the early 1900's, and after making Panama independent in 1902 began a more active relationship with the United States. In the following years the nation was to expand to take up almost the entire west coast of South America. The production of narcotics, especially cocaine, was legalized, and cartels were now legalized companies. This provided a new source of income, and became one of the largest exports of the nation.


Incidents
There are several international incidents that have involved the Narcotic States of Colombia.
- Invasion of Ecuador: Sometime in the early 1900's The NSC invaded Ecuador, annexing the nation shortly after.
- Invasion of Peru: Sometime around the 1920's or 30's the nation invaded Peru, annexing the nation as well.
- Deportation of British criminals to Russia: In a situation that can only be described as an accident, approximately 1000 or more British criminals in the nation were deported and sent to Russia, were a number were subsequently sent to labor camps and/or executed. This caused a mild international exclamation, with the US and UK both expressing anger. It was later resolved, with Colombia being forgiven. Shortly after the leader was sainted by the Russian Orthodox Church.
- Invasion from Venezuela: In the 1940's Venezuela had invaded Colombia. It was a surprise attack, as the advance was rapid and uncalled for. The US did not express any concern, and let it continue until the Colombian leader called for amends and a ceasefire that continues to this day replaced the conflict.
- Invasion(s) of Bolivia: Several times the nation of Bolivia was invaded by Colombian soldiers, none resulting in annexation due to weak supply lines or foreign interference, as was the case when the United States leader declared war on Colombia and was to send soldiers over until the Colombian leader had peace talks.
