The Fascist Union of San Andreas, or FUSA, is a digital North American country which geographically occupies the north of the island (Blaine County) of San Andreas in Grand Theft Auto Online. The Fascist Union of San Andreas is governed as a military junta, a totalitarian dictatorship, by which the Caudillo (Spanish word meaning 'Leader') is the absolute ruler.
The area which is controlled by the Fascist Union used to be Blaine County, until a grand scale military coup seeking independence from the USA occurred, and a Civil War happened, which is still going on to this day.
The principal ideology of the Fascist Union is what they call Anti-Americanism: the prohibition and elimination of all pro-American practices, as the United States is seen as the country's principal enemy.
After starting shootouts with the police (and a small unit of the US Army) and the total blockade of the town of Sandy Shores, a long and violent civil war began between the Unionists, led by the United States Government; and the Fascists, led by the separatist rebellion of Generalissimo Woodywyatt and his army.
The war is still going on today. If the Civil War is ever won by the Fascist army, a military dictatorship will be created, called the Fascist Union of San Andreas, with the Caudillo Woodywyatt as the supreme leader of the island nation. A constitution has been prepared and would be unveiled to the world upon victory day (in the event of them winning the conflict), a new national anthem has been composed, and a fresh new culture and way of life would be introduced by force: new sports, national holidays, monuments dedicated to the glory of the new nation and the official bilingualism ensuring English and Spanish as the official state languages.
FUSA claims political and military authority over the entire island of San Andreas, and that "upon reaching absolute dominance over the island, forces belonging to the United States of America shall have no say over what occurs in the State, in any way." Outside San Andreas, the Fascist Union has control over a few offshore islands (such as Perhaps) that are used as small army bases and plantations. The rebel fascist government has said that they plan on renaming a couple of towns across the island in order to eradicate United States influence and themes from the new independent culture. However, Los Santos will keep it’s name, as it is (according to the insurgency) “carved into the stones of the heavens”.
In summer 2015, a group of players in the city of Los Santos were tired of being controlled by the American government, and despised their ways. So, the leader of this group had the idea of establishing a fascist regime on the island, and illegalise anything pro-American. They set up a fighting organisation to conquer the island and gain total independence from the USA.
Their first move was the conquest of the town of Sandy Shores in Blaine County. They conquered it and established it as their temporary capital. It was the very first FUSA territory. In response to this, the United States declared war on the separatists. This was the beginning of the Civil War.
A violent civil war commenced on the island between two sides:
- The Unionists, led by the United States Army, the Los Santos Police Department and some minor military support from the UK and France;
- The Fascists, led by Generalissimo Woodywyatt and his army, Merryweather Security Consulting, Maze Bank, the hacker Lester Crest and a rising local biker gang called the Eagle's Nest (which sold and smuggled drugs to foreign countries and gave the money to the fascist forces to gain new weapons, vehicles and technology), with some minor financial aid from Nepal, Angola and Zimbabwe.
After taking Sandy Shores, blockading it and declaring it their temporary base of operations or capital, the Fascist Union kept on fighting, and took over Grapeseed, Paleto Bay and nearly all the areas surrounding Mount Chilliad. By December 2015, Blaine County was completely under fascist control.
The Civil War went on a hiatus, and a temporary border was established: the train track that separates Sandy Shores from it's little airfield, which is controlled by the US.
On the 4th July 2016, they made a comeback message to the US government and governor Jock Cranley of San Andreas, declaring that "The war isn't over. Your control over us shall end. Enjoy this 4th July as if it were your last, Governor Cranley. #LaGuerraSigue". Immediately afterwards, many GTA players working for FUSA started a massive battle in the streets of Los Santos; with NOOSE units, helicopters and soldiers everywhere. However, this was not an attempt to conquer the city, it was simply a giant protest, which was ended quickly by the Americans. This event marked the continuation of the war after the long ceasefire.The FUSA captured both Sandy Shores Airfield and Humane Labs at the same time, sending different units after each location. Not long after they sent a helicopter squad to take over the prison. As units of FUSA soldiers performed heists and terrorist attacks in Los Santos, the separatists allied themselves with a local biker gang called the Eagle's Nest, which sold and smuggled drugs to foreign countries and gave the money to the fascist forces to gain new weapons, vehicles and technology.
In June 2017, the fascist army under the command of General Astonviggo acquired an underground bunker located next to Fort Zancudo, a heavily armed and fortified American base. Local rumours say that they have nuclear missiles stored inside the bunker.
The fascist army once again struck back against the unionist US Military on the 12th December 2017, in a aerial battle over Chumash. The Battle of Chumash was one of the most violent parts of the war, with thousands of US troops killed in a destructive dogfight. The battle ended in another FUSA victory, with the victors sending barracks and tanks over to the town along with the Caudillo himself to officially declare the town theirs.
The official languages of San Andreas are English and Spanish. Both are equally supported and enforced by the State. It is similar to Canada, in which both English and French are the main languages.
Since San Andreas is only just seceding from the United States, it doesn't really have it's own traditions and festivities yet. However, the government is plotting and thinking of ideas for national festivals.
A very popular sport in San Andreas is shoot-racing, a very brutal and controversial sport. It is basically athletics: a running race. However, instead of the umpire shooting a blank upwards for the race to begin, he or she uses a real gun, and shoots a hostage with a bag on his head. This action has caused massive outcry outside the island of San Andreas, but the fascist government believes it is good and "quite comedic". The regime officially states that the hostages shot before the race are bank robbers and/or enemies of the State, but it is also believed by many that the hostages are actually the winners of the races. This explains why the winners are never heard from again after each race.
The country is a totalitarian military dictatorship. Concerning the political system of the country, it has not been confirmed whether this newly declared country is a republic or a monarchy. Nobody actually knows what San Andreas is, but General Astonviggo has said that «we will get to that once we actually become independent».The Caudillo (Spanish word meaning 'Great Leader') is the head of state and government, ruler and supreme commander of the State. He has complete control over everything, from the military to the media to the tourists that enter the country. His rule is inspired by Francisco Franco's fascist regime in Spain during a great portion of the 20th century. The current Caudillo is Woodywyatt.
The military is the highest organization of the nation, and is deeply adored and loved by the people. The head of the military is General Astonviggo, with Sergeant Nick6739 (also Mayor of Paleto Bay) commanding the Air Force.
