The year is 1889 in Haiti. Florvil Hyppolite has successfully revolted against the former president François Denys Légitime and has been named president, but this victory was not without its costs. Domestically, Hypploite’s new government has a wide array of post-revolt issues to face, from exhausted soil to persistent debt. Abroad, the United States, who backed Hyppolite’s revolt, threatens the new Haitian government unless Haiti folds to their demands. As a member of Florvil Hyppolite’s cabinet, it is your job to navigate the new currents that this country faces. From ensuring the best conditions for your people to dealing with the gunboat diplomacy of the United States, the fate of Haiti rests in your hands. Will you move forward into a period of unprecedented growth for the country, or fall flat against the threats that seek to dismantle this new order?
