Description:
In "Shining Star", a lame duck US President closed a legal loophole that forced the citizens of the US Commonwealth of Puerto Rico to vote in a referendum and choose between becoming the 51st state of the union, and becoming an independent republic. The republic won in a landslide, and the Republic of Puerto Rico was born. Only a select few knew that Puerto Rico was sitting on gigantic oil reserves that made the oil fields in Saudi Arabia and Alaska pale in comparison. Now in "Pulling Strings", The Republic of Puerto Rico is strong, and it is setting into motion a plan that will eventually give it control of the Caribbean. The Americans are worried about these developments, but there is nothing that can be done as long as the Puerto Ricans continue their socially progressive and capitalist-friendly policies. The Puerto Ricans must keep their plans on track while keeping the Americans neutralized politically, and while fighting an invisible enemy, at home and at abroad.
