Okay, here is the fixed version, with some graphical improvements (or rather, intentional imperfections) and further edits. Also available on my DeviantArt page, in a readable pdf format.Trying out something new - copying the CIA's old World Factbook. This entry is from 1978, based off OTL 1981 Factbook (which was the oldest I could easily find). PoD in the mid 1800s, but there's an obvious butterfly net over Central America. Let me know if any of the Economic/Transportation info looks badly off, I made it looking at similar impoverished/war torn countries from the 1981 Factbook but I'm certainly no expert.
Basic background is that (now dead) President (Dictator) Alejandro Blancos Rios has led his country to the brink of ruin after holding power for around two decades. The last election was completely fraudulent, but even then saw surprising strength from the (tamed) opposition as Blancos had upset his remaining political allies by appointing his son as VP. The Legitimist Party is the standard caudillo conservative type, the New Constitutionalist Party are moderate liberals, and the National Republican Party is a new conservative force that has defected/fled from current President Blancos' rule (whose support, as the idiot son, is weakening by the day). Of course, the banned popular front (the APLN) didn't run in the election but there's a good chance they'd win the next one barring shenanigans. Said popular front would then probably collapse due to infighting, but possibly not before a coup or two by the rightists.
EDIT: Will probably fix it later, but the places where it says CPLA in the leftist revolutionary movements section should instead read PCLA (Partido Comunista de Los Altos).
EDIT2: Man, looking back at the book I somehow entered my GDP per capita as way way to low compared to other Central American countries. Bumped that up to $790 per capita, $3,921 million total GDP. (Compared to Nicaragua at $540, Honduras at $590, El Salvador at $750, Guatemala at $1,010, Panama at $1,530, and Costa Rica absolutely killing it at $1,850). Los Altos would have been decently wealthy and stable in the 1940s compared to its neighbors (probably 2 or 3 in Central America), but lost ground during the 1960s and especially 70s.
As another aside, remember that as this is a CIA factbook, it is also filled with both their and their informants' prejudices. So whenever you see "Trotskyite" next to a figure or party, you might want to ask yourself if that is how they see themselves or how they're described by other rival leftist groups. Or perhaps be suspicious when every vaguely socialist movement is listed under the revolutionary tab, despite a number of their "armed forces" simply being the peasants who have banded together to not be murdered by death squads.
