The world is at war and the last bastion of peace and freedom, the United Republic, enters the battlefield armed with slick chrome air planes and war machines funded by the corporate world of banks and industry. This second faction of our new turn-based strategy game fights for freedom and has nearly unlimited monetary resources to fund its armies.
The president of the United Republic made a famous speech when the war reached Republican soil:
For sixteen years our nation has been inflicted by a see nothing, hear nothing, and do nothing government. Our United Republic has become rich as the worldwide war deprived men of freedom. All men are created equal, so it is our mission to liberate men to pursue their own happiness and dreams. Sixteen years it took our country to realize that we need to oppose the enemies of freedom and the enemies of peace. Will it take sixteen more before we fight back?
No. It is time to take a stand against our enemy in the west that so brutally attacked Pearl Harbour in a selfish conquest to expand their nation. It is time to stand up to the Red Threat, and to stop them spreading their deluded ideas. It is time to bring freedom to the world.
We saw nothing, we heard nothing and we did nothing. But now, you, my fellow Republicans, can make a difference. Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country. Ask how you can help in the fight for freedom!
Men, I want you to join the Republican Air Force. I want you to take up arms in the name of liberty. I want you to strike fear into the hearts of all those who oppose the freedom of men.
