Brazil is a late come in American Worker Compact, binding togheter the socialist states in America; was, infact, in 1942 that Brasil Republic, technically a Brithis ally in war against Usa, collapsed due to debt crisis and slums poverty.

Like Usa, Brazil experienced a brif(but quite unbloody) civil war and a long(and much bloodier) periodo of purges and confiscations in 1942.
Brasil expanded its industries and retired its navy from the war, to, in 1943, enter in war against GB.
