Top 5 Parties

Largely due to the relatively small size of political parties in Bolivia, the parties not in the top five often alternate in position often, since one part may only be one or two members behind the one in front of it.

Taxes

The government of Bolivia has set a comparably high work tax (also known as income tax) on all products when compared to other countries. This is largely due to the relatively small population with which taxes can be collected, so as a result taxes are higher in an effort to increase the daily revenue of the state.

Military

As a result of being one the weakest nations in the eWorld - both economically and militarily - eBolivia has not ever had a national military unit, and instead it relies on the private military units maintained by groups of people or private citizens. The Ministry of Defence does not involve itself in the affairs of these military units, and does not provide guidance as to where orders should be set.

The most powerful military units as of March 2014 (by opponents killed) are Comando Templario, Fuerzas Armadas de Bolivia, Union Militar Boliviana, and CCR. Comando Coquero Rotoista.

Wiki Link blackbook.jpg History

Beginning

The first Bolivian citizen recognized was Ernesto_Guevara, who invited other Bolivian users in the Beta times.

Building the Bolivian Community in Exile

The promise of a new Version, and the chance of new countries rising the New World, forced the disperse Bolivian community to travel around the world and stay in a Argentinian province (Mendoza).

A dead party, Union Argentina (Argentinian Union), was occupied and renamed as Union Boliviana (Bolivian Union).

Bolivian Industries

With the efforts of Bolivian community, a strong industry was created in Argentina named "Industrias aNc." Starting with the weapon company, the company quickly became fiscally successful, allowing the opportunity to expand into the Housing and Raw Material (Iron and Wood) industries in V1.

Building Bolivia

With Bolivia in he new world, a new era started for the Bolivian community. Building a country from zero was a titanic effort, but the commitment of everyone involved in that was enough to secure an organized economy, focused in quality and creating a mixed economy, with the private investor working in manufacture and land, and the Government controlling the Construction and Defensive buildings (Hospitals and Defense systems).

A unified political party was created, Union Boliviana and endorsed by the original Bolivian community by unanimity.

In the first congress election two PTO groups arrived to the country: a Polish one, creating the AFK party and a Swedish group creating Democracia Nacional.

With a final rush of votes the Polish PTO group won the congress election, getting the absolute majority in congress seats.

After a desperate attempt to save the Bolivian funds (more than 1000 golds and 75.000 Bolivian currency) the Polish PTO group obtained the Bolivian funds and started the devastation of the Bolivian tax rates, proposing insane tax rates. After that, the group left the country and the rebuilding process started.

The solidarity and commitment of the Bolivian community was enormous, providing the elected Bolivian president enough tools (specially contributed funds) to continue the process of creating the basement of the Bolivian economy.

Bolivian government built a Q4 Hospital company, a Q3 wood company and a Q1 Moving Ticket company. Taxes were adjusted to the particularities of the country and the economy was becoming healthier.

Currently Bolivia has one of the highest GNP per capita in the continent, a prove of the good work made on the economy.

The new Q4 hospital get the country the objective base to join wargames, proposed and supported by a Romanian group (BCC) and coordinated with the third Bolivian president jesusfbo.

Recently the Hospital National Company (Caja Nacional de Salud was raised to Q5.

A grain company was added to the gov administration and a weaponry Q1 is being administrated by the Min. of Defense.

The Altiplano War: Chile and Argentina vs Bolivia

Bolivian Altiplano

On 27 July 2009, the president of Chile (ProfetaVI), after aproving a War proposal against Bolivia, started an invasion against the Bolivian region of Bolivian Altiplano with official support of Argentinian government and his Armed Forces. http://www.erepublik.com/en/wars/show/919

Bolivia, a country without existent defenses (no hospital was finished yet), was confronting the combined forces of his enemies.

A diplomatic work started in both sides, with Bolivia getting the support of several countries and organized groups around the world, including groups of volunteers from Argentina, Croatia, Brazil, Turkey, China, etc.

Several excuses were exposed from the Chilean government including: "Bolivia is a menace for South America", "Bolivia is a USA and Polish colony".

At the end of the war, and after a civil protest in Argentina and Chile, their leaders recognized the reasons behind the attack: Trying to get the high regions from Bolivia (High Wood in Bolivian Altiplano and High Grain in Beni&Cochabamba, for Argentina and Chile respectively).

The decisive Brazilian intervention, with the presence of tanks and his Elite Commandos kept the attacked region under Bolivian control.

The activation of several MPPs between the Bolivian government and several countries (Turkey, Slovenia, Brazil and Poland) stopped the intention of new attacks on Bolivian territory.

A hard negotiation seeking for a Peace Treaty (including a Peace Proposal approved in Bolivian congress but refused in Chilean Congress) was started by the Bolivian government, but refused by the Chilean president. Chilean and Argentinian leaders were Impeached by their respective congress but stayed on charge.

Finally, with the end of his president period, the peace was granted with a Peace Proposal approved by the new Chilean congress and the Bolivian one on 11 September 2009. http://www.erepublik.com/en/Bolivia/law/14009

Bolivian Firsts

- The first President of eBolivia was Ernesto_Guevara. The first law proposed in eBolivian history was a donation made by KoFulCuk, a Turkish-elected congressmen, in an attempt to save the eBolivian gold from Polish looters. The first Bolivian Field Marshal was jesusfbo. The first Bolivian to get a Battle Hero Medal was jesusfbo. The first Bolivian military unit was created in the first half of December 2008. It was a squad consisting of one officer (Lieutenant jesusfbo), a Sergeant (Ernesto_Guevara) and two soldiers (dieguchis aNc-cheloz).
