History

Batavian Guyana (Suriname) is part of the Batavian Kingdom. Having been a colony for centuries, the relationship was restructured into one based on equality after the Second Great War. The colony of Batavian Guyana has been quiet for most of its history but during the occupation of the Batavian Antilles by Florida-Caribbea Batavian Guyana was overrun with refugees, and over time a terrorist group, the People's Army of the Free Antilles or Mensenleger van de Vrije Antillen developed and began staging counter-Floridian attacks, which culminated in a Floridian blockade of Batavian Guyana, although commerce was not so stringently affected as the Guineas of the Federated Kingdoms and French Guyana eagerly transported their goods.

Since the dissolution of Florida-Caribbea, the Mensenleger van de Vrije Antillen has transformed into a political party focused on the autonomous rights of the various islands in the basin.
