The Republic of the Philippines is a nation situated in South-East Asia, somewhat near to Taiwan and to the north-east of the Indonesian island of Borneo. Until about 500 years ago, the islands were relatively isolated from the rest of the world. This changed in 1521, when Ferdinand Magellan, a Spanish explorer, came across the modern-day Philippines while trying to sail around the world. Magellan was later killed by the natives, who kept his body as a war trophy. In 1565, the first Spanish settlement was established on the islands, making way for around 350 years of colonial rule for the islands. In the late 19th Century, nationalist and reform movements began in the Philippines among both the natives and the Spanish. In 1898, they proclaimed independence, but were handed over to the USA in the Treaty of Paris. The Filipinos eventually got a home government in 1934, and in 1946, they finally got full independence after the fight against the Japanese in the Second World War. In the 20th Century, the dictator Ferdinand Marcos took power, and through his corrupt regime he deprived the country of a lot of its wealth. Marcos was overthrown almost bloodlessly in 1986, and the power of the Philippine Republic was restored to its people.

Manuel Quezon[]

Manuel Luis Quezon was the first president of the Commonwealth of the Philippines. He prepared the groundwork for Philippine independence in 1946.

Dawn of Man[]

"Welcome, Manuel Quezon, by the will of the people president of the Philippines. Born from common stock, your astute mind and unwavering loyalty to the dream of a free Philippines would see you rise through the ranks of the colonial bureaucracy. You would ensure Philippine autonomy within the American empire with your support of the Jones Act, and pressed the Philippine advantage upon its independence with your lobbying for the Hare-Hawes-Cutting Act. This legacy of service would continue even unto your assumption of the presidential office of the nascent Philippine Commonwealth, rallying Filipino hearts and minds against the designs of the Japanese empire.
