Brazil’s history is one of bloodless revolution, social transformation, and economic supremacy. Brazil’s rapid rise from a colony to an established constitutional monarchy is not one without turmoil. The young kingdom faced a critical moment in its history when Pedro I abdicated the throne to his five-year-old son, Pedro II, leaving Brazil without a central ruler and its general assembly and constitution to guide it. It is now up to the regents, politicians, and influential aristocrats and planters to ensure that the country responsible for leading the world in coffee and sugar production stays together. With Brazil’s racially diverse population, corrupt political system, and geographic position, a plethora of issues are just waiting to spring open in the face of this unexpected shift in regime. What will happen to the position of emperor? Will Brazil survive the rise of geographic rivals and hungry colonial enemies? Will its economy continue to dominate on the backs of slaves? All these questions and more will have to be taken into consideration by this body if they want Brazil to emerge from this period stronger than before. So pour yourself a cup of Brazil’s finest coffee, because this committee is going to be a wild one.
