When the cartels first expanded into Bolivia, Poiu'ui Earth, local law enforcement didn't have the resources or manpower to be effective. In response, the President created the Special Operations Division, La Unidad (commonly known as Unidad). After months of bloody fighting, Unidad's leader Major General Baro made peace with the cartel by taking payments from the cartel and, in return the cartel is allowed to continue operating as long as it keeps its killing at a minimum.
When the President made the deal with the cartels, the first thing he did was to overhaul the police force. They were purged and replaced with hand-picked members of special forces from around the world. But Unidad's real job was the opposite - to collect money from the cartels, protect their secrets, and control the borders.
Dark Money Edit
Unidad's main role is to protect the President's secret. This includes assassinating whistleblowers, journalists, snitches, or anyone who could reveal the truth. They also collect payments from the cartels. Most of it goes to high-level politicians in the President's cabinet, but it's also used to bribe customs officials, journalists, and local police.
Devil's BargainEdit Edit
Additionally, Unidad keeps an eye on the cartels, making sure they don't attack each other. But it also means ensuring the cartels keep their end of the bargain - keeping cocaine out of Bolivia, and never allowing anyone to find out what's really happening.
Border ControlEdit Edit
Last but not least is border control. Since Unidad is fully in charge, it isn't difficult to restrict visitors, or keep them separated. The problem comes when high-profile visitors arrive, like politicians or documentary crews. That's usually when "accidents" happen.
Conspiracy of SilenceEdit Edit
Civilians avoid Unidad as much as they can, because nothing ever gets investigated. Even making a report is dangerous. It's common knowledge that Unidad works with the cartels, but no one dares to admit it. They control people with fear. But they're quieter than the Santa Blanca cartel. People go missing, and are never found.
Corruption and tensions with the cartelEdit Edit
After peace was made corruption ran rapid in Unidad. Officers would be payed to do the cartels work and others would use the cartel as informants. Eventually, tensions between the cartel and Unidad began to get hot. General Baro attempted to persuade the government to take action but corrupt politicians stopped it. The Allies managed to get the general on their side and got him to help them fight the cartel. The corruption problem had gotten out of control to the point where Unidad began to resemble a criminal organization much like Santa Blanca. Unlike Santa Blanca, Unidad has the resources of a modern military. The corruption though eroded Unidad to the point which it is somewhat Fracture. Numerous commanders hold more power then what they actually have an example of this is El Comandante who in reality is a lieutenant but wields the power of a "legend".
