[b][u][size=150][anchor=Ety]Etymology[/anchor][/b][/u][/size]

HUElavia derives from the meme of Brazilian Laughter, formally known as HUEHUEHUE, and from a mix of Hispanic and Slavic names of Countries such as Argentina, Colombia, Slovenia, and Latvia.

The standard way to refer a citizen of HUElavia is as a "HUElavian." 

[b][u][size=150][anchor=Hist]History[/anchor][/b][/u][/size]

The first known inhabitants of HUElavia was the native Hueti, a group of tribal people that arrived to the HUElavian continent around 890 BCE by boats, where they hunted food in the nearby jungles. The Hueti mainly moved across the country through small boats, and then picking them up to move around the continent. Due to the constant moving around rivers, most communities were set up around bodies of water. The Hueti were known to build small cities where they can grow civilizations, including modern cities such as Kuelap, Pamallu, Jinaqa, Chuncsaka, Tsachi, Makajuaylla, and Natel. While there were more battles between different tribes in the north, tribes in the south were mainly isolated and were able to thrive locally and in trading with other tribes travelling from the continent of Neumundo. 

HUElavia was explored by the Old World by Fernando Silva Leite Roys in 1689 after searching for new lands for Portuzia, setting up a trading port in modern day Sao Salvador. The Portuzians met with the southern Hueti tribes and had a cordial relationship between trading and some Hueti voluntarily becoming Christianized after converting to Catholiciscm.  30 years later, in 1719, Astellian conquerors came to the southeast of HUElavia looking for riches and also colonized the land, coming into contact with some sparse Hueti tribes in the area. In 1750, Portuzian and Astellian colonizers wanted to gain territory for themselves with taking pieces of the HUElavian continent, causing a series of battles known as [b]The Continental War[/b], which was particularly violent and bloody with thousands of Portuzians, Astellians and Hueti dying, especially the natives that were enlisted to fight by both sides, lasting for well over 15 years. The war lasted until 1765, where a ceasefire and treaty were made to stop the bloodshed, setting not only a national border, but also a cultural border (one of which that stands to this day). From this, there was a separation of the two halves of HUElavia, with the Portuguese-speaking region known as West HUElavia, making Sao Salvador its Capital, and the Spanish-speaking region known as East HUElavia, making San Rafael its Capital. Both of these colonies had Dukes ruling their areas, with Duke Joao Rodrigues-Rocha leading West HUElavia and Duke Manuel Gomez Lopez leading East HUElavia as the first Dukes. With the splits, the Portuzians and Astellians began moving to various towns founded by immigrants, and some would even intermingle with the Hueti, eventually leading to the first mix of HUElavians, the Portuzian-Huetis and Astellian-Huetis. 

Dukes led these regions until May 1st, 1892, where people from both regions revolted against the Dukes, and setting off [b]The HUElavian Independence War[/b], lasting over 5 years. Jointly on June 4th, 1897, both regions jointly declared independence from Portuzia and Astellia respectively, where they merged a few months later on October 7th, 1897 to become The Democracy of HUElavia. 

The newly formed nation had it's first election in 1900, where the Liberal candidate Jose Rodriguez-Leite was elected the first president of HUElavia over Conservative candidate Manuel Gomes-Isecson. In the first few months HUElavia had a weak economy, but rose a little after it began trading its native crops, such as Plantain, Banana, Yuca, and Potatoes. The local governments encouraged immigrants to arrive to the country, where then immigrants from around the world from all continents, all came during the first few years looking for work and a new place to live.  By 1930, the economy fell through a small depression, but when President Roberto Suarez Vargas declared to protect the environment and encourage all visitors to visit the nation's rain forest, which made the economy have a very large rise. The early 1950s saw some civil rights issues occur thanks to the policies done by Conservative President Rodrigo Esposito Rocha, who wanted to continue some feudalism in the country as reminiscent of the colonial days but was ousted in the 1956 election with the election win of Liberal President Manuel Leite Reyes, who helped the country. He declared investment in Science, Technology, Healthcare, and Education in order to improve the country in 1955, which led to a strong rise in the economy. Eventually, President Leite Reyes narrowly lost the 1960 election to Conservative leader Antonio Murillo-Sanchez, who continued to improve the economy but added socially conservative laws into HUElavian society, which did cause some segregation in more conservative and rural areas of the country.  

By 1960, the economy rose up to a very high value but the market drop of February 1962, formally known as The Economic Slap (Portuguese: O Bofetada Económica, Spanish: La bofetada económica), caused a depression in the people, but history was made in 1964 as newly elected President Maria Santos Leite from the Liberal Party, the first female president of the country, declared an expansion of the working force, protection of the environment and an increase of tourism. Thus, the Golden Age of the HUElavian economy was born and she lasted 3 terms (which forced the regulation of allowing presidents to serve 2 terms) until she decided to quit in 1976. She was credited for starting the HUElavian Space Program, NHSA (National HUElavian Space Agency), which thrust HUElavia into its 'Platinum Age' in Science and Technology. President Santos Leite also signed civil rights acts to improve the social status of minorities in HUElavia, which was viewed as great for the country.

After Leite's term, a new president was elected in 1976, Liberal Candidate Omar Lima de Reus, who became known for his progressive education and healthcare reforms, giving the nation a new name around the world. He was credited for bringing in many immigrants from all over, into the nation. He also helped fund the start of research for clean vehicles in the country. Not to mention, President Lima de Reus also brought forward some higher tax rates in order to fund more programs in the country. 

The 1980s saw President Lima de Reus win reelection by a 2 to 1 margin vote, and he did continue to fund the growth of technology and computers in the country. Although, in 1984, Conservative Mateo Fernandez-Herrera won the election over Liberal Candidate Ignacio Abreu-Neves by a small margin, and put forward more socially conservative laws, including a landmark decision that banned divorce in the country, which was a shock to the international community. To add on, religion was given a more central role in the country, where laws were passed in different states that were heavily influenced by religious scripture. 

While President Fernandez-Herrera did narrowly win reelection in 1988 and continue to pass conservative laws and improve the economy with the rise of tourism, 1992 saw HUElavians tired of the countless laws that would push their personal rights, and Liberal Candidate Antonio Gomez-Reyes win the election by a margin of 4 to 1 over Conservative Candidate Francisco Zubizarreta. His election marked massive growth in the economy once again, with increases in tourism, technology, educational materials, and books, as well as revamping the infrastructure and public transportation in the country. Although this came at the expense of rising taxes in order to fund the projects. Most notably, the government did a landmark decision where abortion was legalized in 1994, along with funding for proper sex education in youth and proliferation of contraceptives. This decision was massively supported in the cities while the rural areas did not approve, but it was there to stay. Not to mention, there was now more imports from different countries while HUElavia exported crops and technologies in the country, especially with the start of the internet age. President Gomez-Reyes won reelection in 1996 with ease and continued to make more socially liberal laws while continuing growth in the economy. 

The 2000 Election saw Conservative Thomas Chyrinski, a first generation Rus-HUElavian, win the election over Liberal Omar Cochet with 60% of the Popular Vote. Presidnt Chyrinski mainly built up the military and gave more religious freedom preference to Christians, while at the expense of other faiths. Despite all this, HUElavia was stable until a group of Hueti in Northern HUElavia wanted to form their own nation in 2007, to which President Chyrinski would send the military and police to the north in what would be a series of violent and brutal crackdowns on this movement, gaining the name [b]"The Difficulties"[/b]. This crackdown caused a political turmoil within the government on his decision, where millions of HUElavians staged rallies and protests in disapproval of the violence committed by the government. Nevertheless, he stayed in office but lost the 2008 election massively, where Liberal Gisele Hernandez Garcia became the second female president in an 85% to 15% of the vote. She helped enact acts to rebuild the northern native communities and giving reparations to those affected by the crackdown, as well as improvements on the healthcare system to help those affected. She also ended up reducing the budget of both the military and law enforcement due to their involvement in the tragedy. President Hernandez Garcia would win the 2012 election over Conservative Enrique Lombardi by a strong margin of 90%-10% of the vote. She continued with her reforms as she continued to heal the wounds of the nation, especially with putting more funding towards healthcare for Physical and Mental health of the HUElavian populace. 

In the 2016 Election, it was won by Centrist Party candidate Santiago Medeiros, who was the oldest candidate to win the election at the age of 70 years of age, where he began to take a more middle-of-the-road approach to help the country unify after The Troubles, defeating Liberal Candidate Lucas Navarro by the margin on 58%-42%. He mainly passed reforms involving business subsidization to a bunch of HUElavian industries as a way to grow the Economy. In the 2020 Election, President Medeiros opted not to go for re-election, which brought forward his Vice-President Michel dos Santos to run for the Presidency, where he won the election over Conservative Tomas de la Cruz. President Michel dos Santos continued Medeiros' legacy through passing reforms and acts to help improve the economy of the country and help improve HUElavia's image. 

In 2027, a terrorist attack was done in the capital city of Curumba, where a radical group known as NHF (National HUElavian Front) bombed a local courthouse, which killed 60 people. President Michel dos Santos, responded terribly to the attack, doing very little to catch the perpetrators and bring them to justice, which resulted in outrage in the country and his resignation and exile. A new election was held in 2028, and Liberal candidate Rafael Lima Reus won the election over Conservative candidate Fabricio Mazzi by a blowout margin of 88%-12%. President Lima Reus earned the people's and government's trust through setting up a series of raids to catch each of the perpetrators, and bringing them to justice. Not to mention, progressive reforms in education and welfare, as well as going to people and addressing their issues and proposing solutions that progressed the country as a whole. In the 2032 Election, President Lima Reus won his reelection over Conservative candidate Marc-Antoine Bechard by the margin of 63%-37%. He continued with his reforms, as well as adding more civil rights and freedoms for the people. 

After President Lima's two terms ended, Filipe Suarez-Sanchez, a Conservative, surprisingly won the election by a small margin of over 100,000 votes over the Liberal nominee Isabella Ramirez Nakayama in 2036. President Suarez-Sanchez had a very short-lived presidency after making decisions that infringed on the rights of civilians, as well as had caused some rises in corruption in the country. He was known to put more funding towards the police force and the military, which began to infringe on the people's rights. He ran in the Primaries in 2040, but lost out to a more popular candidate in the Conservative Party, Mateo Rocha, marking the first time an incumbent lost out in their party's primaries.   

In the 2040 Election, Isabella Ramirez Nakayama ran for the presidency again and won the election by a margin of 75% of the vote over Mateo Rocha in the general election. President Ramirez Nakayama became the youngest President of HUElavia at the age of 38, and the first HUElavia of Asian Ancestry to be elected. She had made immigration reforms by allowing ex-patriots and refugees to earn citizenship easily, as well as making Education the main priority of HUElavia, as well as making social reforms towards poverty and medical accessibility. A notable point in President Ramirez Nakayama's presidency was that she signed into law and an amendment for the sale of guns for the civilian population. This was signed into law with the only exception that people purchasing guns had to pass a written exam, as well as a performance exam, along with mental health and criminal record check in order to purchase a gun. She also ended up abolishing the very little of the feudalism that was left in the country, stating that in a time of futuristic advances in HUElavia, HUElavia had to remove anything outdated in the country. The ended up finishing her term as the 2nd Most Popular President in the History of HUElavia

With the end of President Ramirez Nakayama's term, in the 2048 Election, Vice-President Samuel Villa Santos ran as the Liberal Nominee, winning the presidency in a massive landslide over Conservative Nominee Elise Le Pon, 93%-7%, making it the largest margin of victory in HUElavian Presidential Election History. He continued the legacy done by Isabella Ramirez Nakayama. President Villa Santos mainly did improvements to the education system, increasing budgets for staff and getting all the latest materials needed for students of all ages to thrive. He was also credited for an increase funding towards the Computer and Technology Industries, having ordered a move for the IT industry to Sega in the west of HUElavia, giving way to open trade for that industry with Eastern Nations specializing in the industry. He won reelection in the 2052 Election over Conservative Igor Quadros Garcia, by the margin of 58%-42%, much less than before, due to the rising levels of conservatism in the country, trying to curb the spread of Liberalism in the country. 

The 2056 HUElavian president race was decided by a very slim margin of less than 0.0001% (2,500 votes) where the Conservative candidate Ana Sousa Perez won the presidency over Liberal Candidate Tiago Fagundes de Salles, marking the first time the Conservative party won the Presidency in 20 years. In a landmark first decision, President Sousa Perez made the economy into a Capitalist economy, separating from the Mixed-Socialist economy that was in place for well over 150 years. There have been mixed reactions towards this change, with the rich praising the rise in their incomes, while the poor have been disgruntled from the fall of their yearly income. Although, this change caused a massive drop in employment, with employment levels going down from 95% employment to 35% in a matter of days. 

Despite the economy going well, the drop in Civil Rights and Political Freedoms, as well as the lack of jobs for the unemployed under the Sousa Perez administration caused her to lose the 2060 Presidential Election to Liberal Nominee named Ruben Fernandez-Casillas, with President Fernandez-Casillas winning 62% of the Vote. In a massive change to the country, President Fernandez-Casillas ended up abolishing the Royal Family, although granting them special protection from the public, which also guaranteed their descendants to be under special protection as well as they became regular citizens. He also enacted the HUEcare Act, giving Universal Healthcare to the entire populace, which was a first in the history of HUElavia. He also enacted some lowering of taxes, in an effort to continue growing the HUElavian Economy and giving incentives for Businesses to invest in the country. Not to mention, he was also credited towards giving robots with sentient A.I. citizenship and rights to vote, which was a landmark law that was viewed widely positive. The most notable act done by President Fernandez-Casillas was enacting the A.I. economy to run again, which caused the Employment to jump up to 96%, a record high. While this may have changed the economy to "Socialist" from Capitalist, it was met with positive reactions from the general public, as many once again were able to get jobs. 

After the 2068 election, there was a massive surprise with the election as The Conservatives making a surprise gain in votes and the election was tightly contested between Liberal Candidate Angelica Bautista-Saito and Marisol Torres-Mendoza, both of Pinay origin. The election was decided by 500 votes going towards Torres-Mendoza, who won all the Protestant areas, as well as some eastern cities, as well as a surprisingly big amount of the Catholic vote, while Bautista-Saito won mainly the west. Thus, this is the tightest finish in an election in HUElavian history. President Torres Mendoza as President mainly passed socially conservative laws, especially with laws causing drops in civil rights, and causing a rise in authoritarianism and social conservatism, such as putting restrictions as to where nudity was allowed, making sex education optional instead of mandatory, and making laws be passed based on how it corresponds to religious doctrine. From the change of sex education being optional, there was a massive rise in teenage pregnancies, with 20% of adolescent females being pregnant, which caused the policy to be viewed negatively. Despite the change, there was a historic ban on Polygamy passed, after cases of abuse were reported. President Torres-Mendoza also became unpopular out of giving heavy restrictions towards the voting rights of A.I. Humans. 

In the 2072 election, President Torres Mendoza faced off against Liberal Candidate Rodrigo Freitas-Matos from Sao Salvador, and the votes finished very close, with Freitas-Matos winning the election with 51% of the vote to Torres Mendoza's 49%. President Freitas-Matos began his efforts towards improving the image of the country, once again restoring total voting rights to A.I. citizens, as well as making sex education mandatory and with scientific facts instead of optional and filled with opinions. This change did cause a massive drop in teenage pregnancy, dropping from 20% to 4% in a matter of months. Adding on, unemployment rates went down to 2.77%, a historical low, and there was growth in cities across the country with new jobs being done for technology and the environment. There was also more mutual support from other countries due to good relations with the International Community, which served as a positive look to HUElavia. The 2076 election arrived and President Rodrigo Freitas-Matos won reelection with over 70% of the vote over Conservative Candidate Raul Ocampo. He began making efforts to bring more economic freedom within the AI System through cutting taxes and allowing people to keep some of their earned money to themselves, instead of fully taxing them. He also made efforts to fund commercialized spaceships for people to freely use by the people, giving less way for cars to be used in the nation. Adding on, the wars in East and West Jeong, along with civil unrest in Breitzen, gave way for a significant amount of refugees to immigrate to southern HUElavia, and allowed them to have a city and region to themselves. Although, a landmark decision that occurred was in January 2079, where President Freitas-Matos allowed the use of swear words to be freely used in dictionaries, which expanded the civil rights and lowered social conservatism so large enough, that the nation became legally known as an Anarchy, a first in HUElavian history. As a result, this caused a split of power between conservative and liberal states, deciding whether to clamp down on civil rights or let people live freely as they choose. 

The 2080 election ended up being a tight one, as 571 votes allowed Liberal candidate Adriano Coimbra (with help from his Vice-President choice Antonio Jesus Sevilla) to win the Presidential election over Conservative Candidate Raul Rabellini-Ruiz in what was considered a near massive upset in reaction to what was seen as a reaction to the anarchy that spawned in the country. This was the 2nd closest margin of victory by a Presidential candidate, as President Coimbra began to get approval from the other chambers to start easing the chaos of the country in order to maintain order. A major law passed was to change the languages a bit to make it easier for foreigners to learn, which was viewed widely negative by linguists and the general populace, where they wanted to keep their own kind of HUElavian dialect of English, Portuguese and Spanish. In 2082, President Coimbra announced a plan to reduce taxes in HUElavia in order to give more financial freedom to the people. This plan was in part collaborated with the Libertarian Party of HUElavia. Despite these intention, small funding to give Hueks to different tribes caused a 0.1% increase in taxes, further restricting the proposed economic liberation. Although, in 2083, one of the members in President Coimbra's cabinet made the suggestion to cut funding to different areas, including the Space Program. This cut in the Space Program caused a closure in the NHSA, something that has lasted for over 120 years. This in turn sparked outrage among the intellectual community and all around cities in the country, having the government reel back from the effects of not only closing the program but a significant drop in Scientific Development of the country. A few months later, the famous HUElavian Tax Relief Act was enacted and it caused a massive 8.3% tax cut that shocked the country, and came back with mixed results. Personal incomes skyrocketed for the HUElavian society, but there was massive slashes in important sectors of the HUElavian society, most notably in Education and Healthcare, as well as the overall Economic Output had notably tanked. While many Libertarians and significant amount of Conservatives supported the cuts, many Liberals were not pleased with the effects, especially among those in academia and the sciences. While some tax raises were done, the economy has not been raising as expected, and this began to cause some notable issues for HUElavia and the continued growth of the colossal economy that HUElavia has boasted for decades.   

The 2084 Election saw a massive upset, as President Coimbra, despite winning his party's election, failed to get 50% of the general vote to win the election. In reality, he only won 20% of the popular vote, causing the Liberal Party to finish 3rd Place in the voting, behind two surprising candidates Pomawari Sihui Michi of the Green Party, who won 26% of the votes and Juan Carlos Torrente of the Libertarian Party, who won 23% of the vote. Thus, a special election was declared for December 2084, where people went out to vote. In the runoff, Green Party's Pomawari Sihui Michi won the election with 51% of the vote over Libertarian Party's Juan Carlos Torrente, who had 49% of the vote. President Pomawari Sihui Michi became the 6th Female President of HUElavia, as well as the first Native HUElavian President of HUElavia. Adding on, with her Vice-President being Natalia Ramos Caetano, it marked the first time an all-female ticket on the election. President Sihui Michi was known as the "Green President," pushing for many reforms to protect the environment throughout HUElavia. She did grant some freedoms for citizens to cut plants and grass in their environment, as well as subsidizing the agricultural industry to raise them to higher rates never before seen. Despite bringing a more eco-friendly economic approach, some civil liberties were curbed due to the rising conservatism in the country, especially where Conservatives took over the house for the first time in 16 years. Thus, there was more funding towards Law Enforement for the first time in many years, helping bring down the rising crime of the 2080s. Due to this checks and balances, President Sihui Michi was unable to give out many promises from her campaign, as well as give the strength the Green Party wanted. President Sihui Michi did win re-election in 2088, narrowly winning over Conservative candidate Guilherme Barbosa Fagundes by a vote of 50% to 47% of the popular vote. Again, President Sihui Michi pushed for more agricultural reform and technological advancement with business subsidization for these endeavors. Once more, at the 2090 midterms, the Conservatives held out and still retain majority in the House. Despite the efforts, President Sihui Michi was seen as a president that was unfortunately curbed by other forces from enacting the full potential of her government policies. 

In the 2092 election, it was once again another election going to a runoff after it saw a surprising first round victory of Conservative candidate Guilherme Barbosa Fagundes winning the popular vote by 42%, over the Green Party's candidate Natalia Ramos Caetano, who has 39% of the vote, followed by Liberal Candidate Bruno Pueyrredón, who had 18% of the vote. Thus, in the runoff election, it was a surprising finish when Guilherme Barbosa Fagundes won the runoff election in December, winning 53% of the popular vote to Natalia Ramos Caetano's 47%. Thus, for the first time in 24 years, the Conservatives won the Presidential Election, and for the first time in 36 years that the Conservatives had control of at least two branches of the government. In his first major legislation, President Barbosa Fagundes ended up abolishing the AI Planned System that ran the economy for several decades, returning to a more full-fledged Capitalist Economy, resulting from giving the agriculture industry the ability to decide their prices. Compared to the first economic switch, this one had less of a profound effect on the country, with some loss in Employment, but still high enough for people to survive. Although, the economic gap widened for the first time in decades from 2.2 to 5 times more. 

Under President Barbosa Fagundes, there has been radical changes in HUElavian culture and economy. Notably, he had signed into law the abolishment of the minimum wage, but widespread backlash caused him to sign it back into law within a month of signing. Despite this, he did grant more power to companies and businesses, allowing them to have the freedom to lay off workers without reason, which was viewed mixed among the populace. These economic changes have also resulted in the Top 10% having over One Million Hueks on average for the first time, while the Poorest 10% having an average of 78K Hueks, an all time low. With the changes, there was widespread poverty in the outskirts and in rural areas, something that had not been seen since the 1940s. There was also massive funds from the HUElavian Economy moved to various Industry Sectors of HUElavia, including the Agricultural, Cheese & Dairy, Tourism, Technology, and Book Publishing, in one of the most radical boosts to HUElavian industry in recent memory. Eventually, President Barbosa Fagundes passed very Conservative laws, some that have not been seen since the 20th century. Some of these included that women had to dress more modestly, children were to be taught more of Catholicism and Following Authority, and banning contraceptives (which was claimed to be done to increase the youth population in the country). With these changes, HUElavia was widely viewed by the Multiversal Community as a "Corporate Bordello," a first in HUElavian history.  Given that many Corporations were influencing HUElavian norms, and many poor HUElavians had to find work in a Bordello, it seemed it was a fitting that such a title was bestowed to the country. Furthering changes in the country, President Barbosa Fagundes passed, with support from the lower chambers, a ban on Abortions, the first of its kind in HUElavia. The backlash of this change caused many women throughout the country to protest the law change, where there was a continuous protest for over a year until cases of women passing away from shady procedures ended up forcing President Barbosa Fagundes to reverse the law and allow abortion once again. Further change included where Adultery was made illegal in the country, being outlawed once again throughout the country. With civil rights dropping, the real change came in opinion came when it was revealed that several factories around the country were employing illegal immigrants that were forced to work for low wages in horrible conditions. President Barbosa Fagundes allowed it to continue, which was widely viewed negatively by the public, all across the board. With the midterm elections, the Liberal party found themselves as the winners and seeming to be the clear opponents for President Barbosa Fagundes moving forward. The tipping point against President Barbosa Fagundes by the Public was when the president signed into law an "Irreligious Tax," taxing significantly to anyone who was marked as Atheist or Agnostic, which saw HUElavia's Civil Rights rating drop to a historic 48/100, unseen since the early days of the country nearly 200 years ago. Although, laws passed from the World Assembly forced HUElavia to bring more economic equality, bringing more money for the average poor HUElavian, bringing much needed relief to millions of HUElavians across the country, at the expense of protesting Wealthy HUElavians who had their average incomes drop from the international law. Thus, despite heavy campaigning and propaganda by President Barbosa Fagundes, Vice President Oscar Strittmatter, and the Conservative Party, they were on the defensive for the presidential elections. 

The 2096 election was a historic one to remember as President Barbosa Fagundes took on the Liberal Candidate (and former Governor of the state of Bria) Saul Carpentier, seeing the two oldest and historical parties face off for the first time since the 2080 election. The election was what many pundits called a "Bloodbath," where Carpentier won many of the major cities of HUElavia, as well as many states, ultimately winning by a margin of 72% over 28% won by President Barbosa Fagundes, a margin of victory so lar that had not been seen since the 2048 Election. With his victory, the Liberals had control of the Presidency and Congress for the first time in 12 years. 

The first major act of legislation from President Carpentier was to allow HUElavia to become Nuclear Powered for the first time in the nation's history. Coming from the various advancements of technology in the nation, President Carpentier opted to push for a mix of Green and Nuclear power to become a nation that weaned off Coal and Gas for power. This was a historic act given that it repealed parts of the 2015 Environmental and Energy Law that had originally banned Nuclear Power, and allowed HUElavia to get even more power. With the excess amount of waste, many were used to produce Nuclear Warheads, another first in HUElavian history. This project and ability was soon scrapped after various nations threatened embargo over the looming threat HUElavia posed over others and repealed the project to prevent economic backlash. A few months later, HUElavia chose to go against the threats, stating their reason to own Nuclear Warheads was due to the lack of military that HUElavia has, and their need to have some sort of defense against any attackers or invaders. Thus, it resulted in some sanctions, but HUElavia continued to trade and negotiate out of good faith and goodwill. 

President Carpentier continued the previous administration's economic actions, by giving economic support for various industries in the country. Most notably, enough subsidies and support was given to where the Agricultural Industry of HUElavia grew to be among the Top 10% of the multiverse, a first in HUElavian history. Adding on, there was a notable increase in the Basket Weaving Industry, reaching to an all-time high in HUElavian history as well. Socially, HUElavia saw increases in their Civil Rights, with the most notable one being Polygamy being legalized once again, but this time with very strict laws towards allowing Polygamous marriages, especially putting a ban on marrying someone who is not of age. There was also the historic repeal of prohibition previous placed years ago, where HUElavians were clamoring to be able to drink and use in foods alcoholic drinks, as well as companies wanted to help increase the economy overall. Thus, it was fully repealed, and people were able to drink again, although there were protections put in place to make sure they would get a safe ride to wherever they needed to go. On top of that, there was a massive spending put in place towards Healthcare, where it continues to grow to its former levels, in an effort to cover the medical needs of HUElavians through the National Health System. There was also steady increases in civil rights, but some of the laws have been curved by the opposition in efforts to keep their ideals going. In the 2100 Election, President Carpentier had a rematch against Conservative Ex-President Barbosa Fagundes, where President Carpentier won re-election by a margin of 65% to 35%, winning all, but two coastal states in the election, the most a Winning Candidate has won since 2060. President Carpentier continued his leadership with more hands-on approach, participating in more in-person events, especially with the country's youth. On top of that, there were further increases in civil rights, while seeking to increase more faith in the country. A notable act done by President Carpentier was making Voting compulsory, where every HUElavian citizen would be able to receive a ballot in the mail if they had not voted early, which had its critics, but the administration defended their decision in order to expand on voting rights to everyone in the nation that was a citizen. President Carpentier also had signed a pact with the nation of [nation]Sudilia[/nation], making it easier for both HUElavians and Sudilians to travel abroad to each other's countries, trade materials, and participate in joint programs.

Although, due to the Tax Relief Cut of 2083, the cut was so massive to the Healthcare budget that the quality dropped, where the country has not recovered it back many years later.

HUElavia only uses less than 10% of their Oil and Gasoline in order to power some old vehicles. HUElavia has reserves of Uranium and Plutonium, but passed a law in 2015 that banned the mining of any Nuclear or Ground Energy Sources in order to prevent any deforestation or pollution of the Nation's Natural Areas. This has been expanded to different minerals found over the years in attempts to make HUElavia a fully green nation. Despite growths in Green Energy in the country, part of the 2015 Energy and Environment Law was repealed to finally allow Nuclear Energy to be harvested and used in the country, allowing HUElavia to become a mainly Green and Nuclear nation, one of the very few in their world.
