Venezuela in "The Pugnacious Peacemaker"Edit

The Empire of Tawantiinsuuju and the Emirate of the dar al-Harb in Ib Scoglund's world dominated the southern half of what was Venezuela in Allister Park's original timeline.

Venezuela in Southern VictoryEdit

Venezuela remained neutral during the Great War.[1] However, in 1925, it had a border dispute with Colombia. The United States backed Colombia, warning Germany not to aid Venezuela. Germany denied it had done so, and issued the same warning to the U.S. The conflict was resolved without bloodshed.[2] In 1940, Venezuela was in talks with the Empire of Brazil regarding a border dispute.[3]
