Amazonia is one of the most important Awakened Nations, and one of the few countries to have a dragon as head of state. Located in the northeast of South America, Amazonia territory spread over the Orinoco and Amazonian basin and the Brazilian plateau. It enclaves Venezuela, and also has land borders with French Guiana, Aztlan, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and Uruguay.
In 2034 awakened forces led by three great dragons capture of the city of Brasilia and the Brazilian government is forced to surrender. In the aftermath of the revolution the great dragon Hualpa declares the creation of the new nation of Amazonia.
Tensions have been high between Aztlan and Amazonia for some time. Extensive PR campaigns have been launched attacking each other. Which brings us to 2073 and the war between Aztechnology/Aztlan and Amazonia over Bogota. Amazonia is basically on a crusade to preserve the ecology of the rainforest. Pushing forward with the ideal that "The Amazon is a living thing, it deserves to not be raped". While this may seem like a well intentioned ideal, many (I should say too many) of the Amazonian soldiers are overzealous in their beliefs. The unlucky citizens of Bogota that are unwilling to let the homes return to rainforest often face torture at the hands of zealous Amazonian fighters.
The Amazonian flag looks like being just a part of a simple coloured map of the Amazon rainforest.
Amazonia is covered for the most part by the Amazonian jungle and the Brazilian Plateau. In the past thirty years, the Amazonian jungle has known a strong regrowth. The largest urban area, called the Metropole or "Rio Paulo" unites the cities of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
Amazonia has not signed the Business Recognition Accords. Aztechnology is banned from conducting business in the country, which led to the closure of Embraer factories, owned by Dassault, a subsidiary of Aztechnology.
