Rio de Janeiro was a large Brazilian city that was the center of the economy and politics of Brazil, second to only Brasília, for much of the 20th century. However, the city, faced with a sharp decline in the police force, as well as an increase in organized crime, began a spiral into lawlessness in the early 21st century, which began the Nova Rian Movement. Another key factor in the fall of Rio de Janeiro was the growing gap between the rich and the poor of the city, which created a class living in luxuriant houses, and another class living in the poor neighborhoods called "Favelas".

Nova Rian Development and CleanupEdit
After the sale of Rio de Janeiro to Nova Rio, the small country worked quickly to make the city the economic powerhouse it once was. New construction and an effective social welfare program boosted the literacy rate to over 95%, cut into the gap between the rich and the poor, and cleaned up the slums that marred the city. The new Rio de Janeiro is a sparkling jewel of a city, and is even more brilliant than the old Brazilian city.
