|Second Chinese Civil War (The Second Renaissance)|
The Second Chinese Civil War was a war within the United Federation of China (UFC) during the worst days of the Balkanization, and resulted in the fall of the Federalist government in China and the creation several successor states through American and Mexican proxies. The war started when Mexican proxies staged a series of riots and eventually coups in the Chinese southern industrial heartland. Media control warfare and a series of neural engineering operations against local leaders quickly sent the country into open rebellion against the Federalist government in Beijing.
The prosperity was short lived, as it was for every nation by the end of the 21st Century. The population crisis of the Americans could not compare to that of China. Where the United States began to feel the stings of an inflated workforce made redundant by advances in robotics and automation by the late 2070s, China had been reeling from economic depression for most of the decade. When the gates opened for a new wave of colonists to Mars in 2081, was it any wonder that the Chinese saw the largest transfer of citizens to the American space colonies? Over half a billion people from China flooded to the colonies in the space of 20 years, abandoning their homeland for the promise of a better life in space. For those that stayed behind, a power vacuum was left by the elites that had fled. By 2096, many Chinese leaders sought to adopt the Quantum Economic Model that had freed the colonies from economic disaster. After several pilot programs in Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Nanning, the government began to move forward with plans to be the first nation on Earth to implement the colonial model. As China became increasingly important to the Mex-American Cold War, influence from both sides began to tear these reforms apart.
