Germans managed to destroy Syndicalism in Europe, but they couldn't prevent rise of worker states in other parts of the world. Many Socialists, Syndicalists, Bolsheviks and Anarchists from Commune of France, Republic of Sicilies and Union of Britain escaped German rage and fleed accross the Atlantic. In the war between Mitteleuropa and European Syndicalists, Republic of Sicilies was first to fall. It was followed by Commune of France, and Italian Syndicalist leaders that were sheltered in France had to run again, this time together with French Syndicalist leadership to Britain. They were accompanied by Spanish CNT-FAI activists who retreated to France after their defeat in civil war. Germans soon came after them and battered British Republican Navy evacuated entire European Syndicalist leadership to America. British ships carried important political leaders like Arthur Horner, Eric Blair, Niclas y Glais, Christabel Pankhurst, Lewis Jones, Philip Snowden, Annie Kenney, Oswald Mosley, Marceau Pivert, Nestor Makhno, Albert Camus, Maurice Thorez, Angelo Tasca, Pierre Villon, Henri Rol-Tanguy, Jacques Doriot, Palmiro Togliatti, Antonio Gramsci, Benito Mussolini, Nikita Khrushchev, Juan García Oliver, and many others.

Exiled Syndicalists settled in Mexico. Part of them later moved to Combyned Syndicates of America when situation in North America became more stable. Those political refuges had cntinued their work in exile and had great impact on policy of countries that hosted them. Mexico was at least officially still classic liberal republic, with strong Left-Wing goverment in power. Exiles connected with radical Mexican Syndicalists and demanded transformation of Mexico into real Syndicalist state. Weak democratic and moderate Left opposition was quickly overruled by majority of Mexican Syndicalists and European exiles. United Mexican States were abolished and federal republic was transformed to federation of communes. Political renovators claimed that changes will improve local self-governance, but in fact the wish for centralization was behind that plan. Small and weak communes were not able to resist central power so successful as the strong federal republics were. New Mexican policy was developing under heavy influence of European exiles, with Mexican Syndicalism being under heavy influence of Mexican nationalism, strong power of goverment and large role of the state in economy. Fuel for Mexican Syndicalism were ideas of statist Syndicalist exiles which turned Mexican Syndicalism into mix of Sicilian National-Syndicalism, British Maximism and French Jacobinism. This brought many tensions among Syndicalists, with anarchist and less etatist leaders getting in conflict with hardliners. Two Ukrainian born politicians, Nestor Makhno and Nikita Khrushchev attacked each other with furious arguments, with Makhno seeing statist Syndicalism as oppressive and totalitarian, while Khruschev claimed that anarchist ideas led to chaos and destruction. French exiles also divided themselves into two blocs, with Jacobine Maurice Thorez leading fight with anarchist Albert Camus. Benito Mussolini was firing from all heavy guns on Palmiro Togliatti while Spanish exiles weren't so divided as French and Italian ones. When anti-Syndicalist repression in Europe became even stronger, with many Syndicalists in Germany, Austria-Hungary and other countries being on the run, even more European exiles massed in Mexico. Strong German group under leadership of Ernst Thalmann and Walter Ulbricht reinforced faction of hardliners, while group from Slavic parts of Austria-Hungary under Josip Broz and Edvard Kardelj joined with Spanish circle. Spanish circle that promoted economic ideas of auto-managment was quickly condemned by dogmatics who saw idea of workers running factories alone as dangerous and unrealistic. British group was quite homogenous, with only Oswald Mosley barking at ''weakness of British Socialists''. Mosley had some support of hardliners from other nations at first, but was quickly abandoned by his allies when he started to launch crazy ideas about changing Mexico into Syndicalist Empire, with Mosley becoming new Mexican Emperor, arguing his right to rule with his noble roots. Tensions between various groups became very dangerous and less radical groups started to leave Mexico. Some political leaders moved to Brazil, while most of political activists left for CSA.
Oswald Mosley wanted to become Mexican Emperor.
Old Internationale was destroyed by Germans and new was born under leadership of Mexico. Despite it's members have diffrent views on Syndicalism, they must stick together to survive. During the civil war in America, Reed had to rule with iron fist to keep together CSA. He even had to crush American anarchists who were opposing centralized system of army and were weakening Syndicalist war effort. Reed continued with very authoritarian rule for some more years after the war to perform successful reconstruction. When most critical problems were solved, more democratic system was established. European exiles who dwelled in Mexico were attracted by less oppressive system and CSA became promised land for those who were not feeling well in Mexico. With possession of most industrialized areas in America, power of CSA was growing fast and inner rivalry with Mexico started. With Norman Thomas succeding Reed after Father of American Proletarian Revolution died, CSA fell into even bigger contrast with Mexico. But it seems that rivalry between two Syndicalist giants wasn't harmful for Internationale as both nations teamed who will offer more help to allies and win their loyalty, or who will send more aid to Syndicalist rebels all over the world. Both CSA and Mexico led separate missions in Africa when ASC fought against oppresive Mittelafrikan regime. European exiles in Mexico didn't try to rule the country directly as they feared of resistance of Mexican people that could be caused if ''some foreigners ruled our country''. Instead of that, they rather influenced Mexican policy in less formal way, using their important positions in civil society, like Mussolini working as publisher of largest Mexican newspaper and other important people using their friendship with Mexican politicians to suggest new ideas. Only Nikita Khruschev took more formal political position, becoming advisor on ministry for international affairs. Theories of exiles about Mexican people rejecting foreign born rulers crumbled when young generation of foreigners quickly won the hearts and minds of Mexican people.
Fidel Castro was born in wealthy Cuban family. Altough he wasn't really deprived of anything, Fidel started to mess with politics. Nobody knows what forced him to start resistance against reactionary regime of Fulgectio Batista. Probably he started with pro-democratic activism because of boredom and desire for adventures. Political activism brought rage of authoritarian Cuban regime upon him and Fidel was jailed. After being in a jail for short time, he was forbiden to mess with politics when he was released. Angered with such behaviour of regime, Fidel and his brother Raul organized resistance group to overthrow Batista with armed force. Such idea was off course unrealistic and group was discovered by police when one of members tried to purchase some rifles. But regime was seeing every attempt of organized resistance as serious threat and unexperienced resistants had to run and hide. Resistants soon fleed from Cuba in stolen boat and landed in Mexico. Syndicalist system in Mexico had great impact on newcomers and Castro brothers quickly adopted Syndicalist ideas. Fidel and his brother didn't plan to settle in Mexico for a long time, just until strong group would be ready to return to Cuba and overthrow Batista. Cuban group was gathering weapons and volunteers, training for combat and even studying works of Marxist, Socialist and Anarchist thinkers. Group was also receiving help from Mexican goverment, with Nikita Khrushchev responsible for providing neccessary aid from govermental funds. In 1958, Cuba joined Carribean Federation and plans for liberation of Cuba were ruined. Castro brothers were now stucked in Mexico and they decided to enter Mexican political scene. Cuban freedom fighters already enjoyed a lot of respect among the people of Mexico and Fidel already had connections with political peak. Nikita Khruschev was ready to support Castro and Fidel quickly achieved successful political career. With old generation of politicians fading away, Castro was great oportunity to guarantee survival of political ideas that were consolidated by previous generation. With help of his political godfather Khrushchev, Fidel Castro secured strong place in politics and achieved position of General Secretary of Central Commite of Congress of Mexican Labour Unions. His brother Raul was elected for Chairman of Congress of Mexican Labour Unions. Castro brothers are enjoying support of the Congress ever since they were elected on their positions.
Combined Syndicates of America are leading much more diffrent interior policy than Commune of Mexico. Political orientation was developing under influence of European exiles that moved to CSA from Mexico. Five-year plan of reconstruction put CSA back on it's feet, but less centralized economic policy was needed to improve living standard of population. Together with American activists, European Syndicalists developed system of workers auto-managment which replaced centralized planned economy. Councils of workers were established and workers were allowed to decide about the size and type of industrial production. Similar system was adapted to agrarian production where centralized system of rough collectivization was replaced with more autonomous system of smaller farming collectives which were led by local syndicates in very anarchist way. Mexico was not amused about such experiments, but Internationale was under constant threat from it's enemies and ''revisionism'' had to be tolerated. Mexico struggled to show that Mexican way of Syndicalism is the best and tried to influence other members of Internationale to follow Mexican example. CSA and Mexico even launched their own system of help for other Syndicalist nations. General George C. Marshall was founder of Marshall Plan that provided help from CSA to other Syndicalist nations, while Mexican counterpart of Marshall Plan was Ruiz Doctrine, named after Mexican minister for economic planning Adolfo Ruiz Cortines. Centroamerica and Venezuela received Mexican aid, Brazil chosed help that was offered by CSA, while Bengal wisely took both packets of aid due to critical situation in agrarian production.
Syndicalist Internationale soon gained new members and today seven nations are members of Internationale. Mexico is formal leader of alliance, altough it's leadership is questioned by economic superiority of CSA. Both Mexico and CSA have nuclear arsenals. Group of scientist under leadership of Italian exile Enrico Fermi developed nuclear weapons for Mexico while CSA developed them with help of Syndicalist espionage in Canada. Mexico represents hardliner faction in Internationale. Mexican example of Syndicalism is followed by Centroamerica, Venezuela, Libya and Union of Africa. CSA represents Syndicalist system that is more democratic, less centralized, with more economic freedom and prefers world wide revolution free of nationalism over Mexican nationalist view on Syndicalist internationalism. Chairman of Congress of American Labour Unions is respected theorist of self-managment Noam Chomsky while position of General Secretary is held by popular young and ambitious union organizer Barack Obama. Syndicalist system that is practicized in CSA is followed by Brazil, Bengal and Nepal. Despite political rivalry Mexico and CSA must cooperate in favour of their alliance. In main defense sheme of Internationale for North America, general sector of Mexican military operations covers unfriendly United States of America, Pacific States of America and Southern Commonwealth, while main target of CSA is American Union State, with Canada and USA being secondary targets). According to those defense plans, most of Mexican forces are placed on borders with Southern Commonwealth, USA and PSA. Mexico maintains large conscripted army. Land forces are made of four motorized divisions, six mechanized brigades, three armoured brigades and four brigades of special forces. Navy consists one fleet carrier, six destroyers and eleven frigates. Navy also deploys strong submarine fleet and small transport fleet. Air force is made of one group of strategic bombers, four squadrons of strike fighters and seven squadrons of long-range fighters. Defense of CSA is also based on conscripted army. Land forces deploy six motorized brigades, three mechanized brigades, one armoured division, two armoured brigades and three brigades of special forces. Navy deploys five fleet carriers(CSS Revolution, CSS Joe Hill, CSS Jack Reed, CSS Chicago and CSS Detroit). They are accompanied by nine destroyers, 14 frigates, strong fleet of submarines and transport fleet. Air force deploys two squadrons of strategic bombers, six squadrons of long-range fighters, three short-range fighter squadrons, four strike fighter squadrons and three squadrons of close air support aircraft.
F-15 Crimson Eagle of CSAF. Various versions of this aircraft are used for multirole purposes and also for specialized ground attack purposes. With controling most industrialized region of North America, Combined Syndicates of America have gained economic superiority in Internationale. CSA is often refered as Arsenal of Syndicalism due to it's very massive and well developed defense industry. CSA is providing most of weaponry for it's allies as home production in other Syndicalist states can't satisfy all needs of their armed forces. Syndicalist air forces equiped with CS produced aircraft are dangerous opponents for unfriendly air forces. Pilots of Canadian Harriers and French Mirage fighters see Syndicalist opponents as worthy foes in the skies.
Brazil is strongest Syndicalist nation in South America. Brazil is in constant rivalry with eternal enemy La Plata. Strong conscripted army is protecting Brazil against internal and external enemies. Most of land forces are deployed on border with La Plata. Land army is made of three mechanized divisions, nine motorized divisions and four elite infantry brigades specialized for jungle warfare. Navy consists of one fleet carrier, seven destroyers, twenty frigates, strong submarine fleet and small transport fleet. Brazilian air force is made of four squadrons of long-range fighters and three squadrons of strike fighters. Brazilian Northern neighbour Venezuela is sworn enemy of Columbia and funds Syndicalist rebels in Columbia to overthrow hostile goverment. Venezuela has conscripted army. Most of land forces are deployed near border with Columbia. Land forces are made of four motorized divisions and one armoured division. Navy deploys six frigates and small submarine fleet. Air force consists of one squadron of long-range fighters, one squadron of short-range fighter and one squadron of strike fighters. Centroamerica is under heavy Mexican influence. Conscripted army deploys two motorized divisions, two motorized brigades and one brigade of special forces.
M1 Marshall, main battle tank named after General George Marshall who sided with CSA due to his disappointment with MacArthur's strategy in war. This was major boost for Syndicalist war effort as gain of important professional commander improved organization of Syndicalist defense. After Marshall's defection, MacArhur started to lose many other commanders who started to defect to other sides, mostly to American Union State. Generals were not willing to follow MacArthur's orders to lead strategy of scorched earth and rather switched their allegiance. M1 Marshall MBT is pride of CS Army. Great firepower and strong armor are nightmare for opponent tank crews. This tank is almost unchallanged in North America, with Canadian, Texan and US Challengers, Crusader tanks of AUS and Russian armour of PSA hardly being equal opponents of Marshall tank. Other Syndicalist nations are producing diffrent versions of Marshalls with license from CSA, altough those models can't really achieve quality of CS made vehicles.
Union of Africa is Syndicalist nation which causes many troubles to it's neighbours. ASC is funding rebels in unfriendly neighbour states and neighbours would already invade it if Union of Africa wouldn't enjoy protection of Syndicalist Internationale. Union of Africa has large conscripted regular army which is cooperating with rebels in other African countries. Large units of regular army accompanied by volunteers often just cross unprotected parts of borders and joins with rebels in fight against unfriendly goverments. Such unit once encountered brigade of French Foreign Legion near Lake Chad and French had to retreat after heavy fight. Marshal Dassault even threatened he will nuke Union of Africa for such behavior, but chairman Robert Mugabe just answered French leader that National France can go to Hell. Ostafrika ha salso similar problems as National France. To prevent troops from Union of Africa crossing lakes Tanganyika and Nyasa on the border between Union of Africa and Ostafrika, Ostafrikan leader General Einewald ordered sea mines to be placed in the lakes. Regular land forces of Union of Africa deploy four mechanized divisions, one armoured division, six motorized divisions and ten brigades of infantry specialized for jungle warfare. Navy is made of one pocket carrier, two destroyers and six frigates. Union of Africa also deploys small submarine fleet and large fleet of various small ships and boats, used to supply rebels and even for pirate attacks of lonely merchant ships of unfriendly nations. Air force is made of four short-range fighter squadrons. Libya is Syndicalist nation that is nearest to Europe. This isn't pleasant fact for Libya as both Mediterranean straits are closed for Syndicalist ships. But Libya is not cut from it's allies. Smuggling paths that are organized by various Syndicalist rebel groups connect Libya with Union of Africa. Libya is also supporting Algerian nationalists that fight for independent Algeria. This causes even more problems for National France. Libya has strong conscripted army which deploys one mechanized divisions, three motorized divisions, one air mobile brigade and four commando brigades which often cross the borders of National France to perform various sabotages, support the local rebels and to protect the convoys that smuggle important goods and material for Libya. Navy consists of small submarine fleet while air force deploys three squadrons of short-range fighters and two squadrons of strike fighters.
Bengali Syndicalism combines socialist ideals with many religious ideas. When Burma entered union with Bengal, Budhism became very important factor in Bengali politics. Bengal struggles for liberation of India and eventually, liberation of entire Asia. Surrounded by some some of most oppressive and reactionary regimes in Asia, ideas that Bengal promotes are very progressive: Anti-imperialism, worker rights, equality of men and women and Syndicalist type of democracy(which is still more democratic than Qing absolutism or autocracy of princes). Bengal abandoned conscription system because enough volonteers are joining armed forces. Ground forces deploy 25 motorized divisions, six mechanized divisions, one armoured division and four special forces brigades. Navy consists of one fleet carrier(Aung San), three destroyers, seven frigates and small submarine fleet. Air force is made of five short-range fighter squadrons and one strike fighter squadron. Similar as Bengal, Nepal has combined Marxist and non-Marxist socialist ideas with Eastern philosophy and Hinduism. Two Gurkha brigades are guarding Nepal, while several Gurkha units serve in allied Syndicalist forces from Africa to America.
