The Salisfordian Civil War (Salisfordian: Guerra Civile Salfortana) was a multifaceted civil war in Salisford, lasting from 1968 to 1974 and resulting in an estimated TBD casualties.

Background

March on Savotta

In 1950, Sandro Neri, concerned by the liberalizing agenda of Maria III of Salisford and her First Minister Giacomo Ottone, marched his Esercito Volontario Salfortano across the border from the Creeperian department of San Pablo. Once across, Neri decalred that the current government in Savotta was illegitimate and in "the hands of traitors and madmen".

Receiving much support from the right in Salisford, Neri would suceed in overthrowing the sitting government and installed his own party, the Catholic Labor Front as the ruling party of Salisford. Suspicious of the Queen's role in the previous government's efforts and liberalizing, Neri delegated more power to the Salisfordian Parliament and created the Grand Council, both of which were dominated by his own party.

Neri's ministry

Now finding himself as both First Minister and Chairman of the most powerful political party in Salisford, Neri was able to wield unparalleled political influence and power to shape Salisford as he saw fit. Most of his policies were effective, and helped the previously-stagnant Kingdom transform into a developed nation.

Despite his effectivity, many objected to Neri's politics and heavy-handed nature of governance. Others, mainly holdovers or sympathizers of the previous liberal regime, were ideologically opposed to Neri's Labor Front. THis led to the creation and proliferation of various anti-government paramilitary groups.

Death of Neri

On 1 May 1968, after giving a speech at an event honoring veterans of the EVS, an anarchist was able to infiltrate Neri's light security presence and get close enough to fire 2 shots at Neri with a Figueroa-3 Tipo-1933. While not immediately fatal, one shot entered his midsection, breaking multiple ribs and damaging one of his lungs causing massive internal bleeding. Neri was rushed to the nearest hospital, but he would die only a couple hours later at 7:32 pm local time.
