The People’s Democratic Republic of Acadia released a biological weapon upon the world that killed millions and brought the worldwide economy to a crashing halt. Acadian agents inside Pineland used the health crisis to destabilize the administration and support the opposing candidates in the upcoming election. Bought and paid-for politicians fought them with every political weapon they had, and compromised generals interfered with administration policies and orders. Some even called their Acadian counterparts to undermine the administration’s positions. Election laws and procedures were changed to remove anti-fraud measures for the health crisis. Allegations of widespread fraud and foreign collusion rocked Pineland after the election, resulting in further domestic unrest in the nation. A new administration was sworn in though, to the great approval of Acadia and their agents in Pineland.
