Emil Briar was the Federational Prezidant of Machinam from 2029 to 2049. He upkept the totalitarian, communist condition of his country, though allowed for freer trade across Junope. Likewise, Emil Briar also slightly raised the domestic economic freedoms of its denizens, but still heavily maintained the state's superiority in the economy -- which caused Machinam to be technically classified as state capitalist.
However, in Quintillitus of 2049 Emil Briar was mysteriously assassinated. His sudden death caused massive backlash within the Federation of Machinam, which ultimately resulted in civil war erupting, as various fringe groups aimed to take control of the leaderless state.
