An authoritarian military dictatorship ruled Chile for seventeen years, between 11 September 1973 and 11 March 1990. The dictatorship was established after the democratically elected socialist government of Salvador Allende was overthrown in a coup d'état backed by the United States on 11 September 1973. During this time, the country was ruled by a military junta headed by General Augusto Pinochet. The military used the breakdown of democracy and the economic crisis that took place during Allende's presidency to justify its seizure of power. The dictatorship presented its mission as a "national reconstruction". The coup was the result of multiple forces, including pressure from conservative groups, certain political parties, union strikes and other domestic unrest, as well as international factors.

The regime was characterized by the systematic suppression of political parties and the persecution of dissidents to an extent unprecedented in the history of Chile. Overall, the regime left over 3,000 dead or missing, tortured tens of thousands of prisoners, and drove an estimated 200,000 Chileans into exile. The dictatorship's effects on Chilean political and economic life continue to be felt. Two years after its ascension neoliberal economic reforms were implemented, in sharp contrast to Allende's leftist policies, advised by a team of free-market economists educated in US universities known as the Chicago Boys. Later, in 1980, the regime replaced the 1925 Constitution with a new constitution in a controversial referendum. This established a series of provisions that would eventually lead to the 1988 Chilean national plebiscite on October 5 of that year.

Augusto Pinochet[]

Augusto Pinochet, in full Augusto Pinochet Ugarte was leader of the military junta that overthrew the socialist government of President Salvador Allende of Chile on September 11, 1973. Pinochet was head of Chile’s military government. During his dictatorial reign tens of thousands of opponents of his regime were tortured.

Dawn of Man[]

"Greetings great guardian of order and traditional values Don Augusto Pinochet Ugarte! Into your hands is that you received a nation caught firmly within the grasp of communism, besieged by foreign influences and with a ever shrinking control of its internal forces. It was there that you saw an advantage and took power by force to restore the ways of capitalism and conservative values over your keen, close watch.


Art by DarthKyofu

Don Augusto, the nation once again is found without the direction of a powerful military who can set them on the right path. Can you fight against the forces of socialism? Can you restore the military to it's rightful position as the guides of your nations future? Can you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?

Introduction: "I rescued my nation from the brink of collapse and extirpated the marxist cancer from it, what have you done for your nation?"

Defeat: "Yesterday, I took over a nation on the brink of the abyss, today, we take a step forward."
