The USBR, the United Socialist Broviet Republic, or simply the Broviet Union, was a Super-Faction of Generation I, and was continued in Generation V as a small-large faction. After leaving their ruined city of Brahlingrad, the USBR was renamed to Broviets. The USBR was co-led by Dictators Artemis360 and wlzpaladin.
Current Population: 6
1st World Generation===Summary=== Artemis360 began the USBR with the help of wlzpaladin after he escaped the oppressive faction, Hashashin. After Artemis and wlzpaladin departed, Rageblood of Los Diablos accompanied them in the search for the sacred Brotherlands. After about a day of searching, the party settled in snowy valley far from Hashashin and the rest of the world, the Brotherlands.
The two then began the construction of Broscow, starting with a castle. After many days of gathering supplies and building, wlzpaladin and Artemis left to ransack the then abanadoned Hashashin faction. The acquisition of Hashashin's buried supplies boosted the construction of Broscow majorly.
After many days of tiring work leveling a mountain which blocked any form of further construction, the construction of the main city began.
The faction thus flourished in members interested in the ways of the Bros and Brahs of the Broviets.

December 5th – Crusade called on vampires by LosDiablos, Imperium, IronLegion, and Buttcheeks beginning The Vampire Wars.
December 6th – Crusaders declare war on USBR, attacking Brahlingrad, the first battle of the Vampire Wars (Battle of Brahlin). Plenti and AshtonArdoin, being the only available members for defense, hold off Ryjinn and LosDiablos until Imperium, Buttcheeks and the rest of IronLegion arrive. After blasting into the city, AshtonArdoin and Plenti log out for the city's safety. After some negotiations, Artemis360 agrees to resign from USBR leadership until he's purged of vampirism.
December 9th – Artemis360 purges himself of vampirism.

December 22nd - Reviewmad infiltrates Revolution and informs the USBR of their co-ordinates, leading to the fall of Revolution at the hands of the AshtonArdoin and Artemis360. A joint operation between Los Diablos and USBR, stemmed from one of Rageblood's christmas gifts, renders the Technocrats almost powerless.
January 3rd - Three allies of Brahligrad, Imperium, LosDiablos, and Icarius, ambush the USBR after a supposed infiltration into one of their factions by two of the Broviets. Unprepared for battle, the men of Brahligrad tried with all their might to defend the town, ultimately leading to failure. USBR was crushed by the opposing factions andleft in ruins and pillaged for all of its resources. Wlzpaladin, Ripvayne, and Plenti set off to find a new home for the Broviets before settling on some unclaimed territory with optimistic hopes for the future.
January 11th - Reviewmad leaves due to timezone issues. He ventures in to the wilderness and founds Solace, a deliberate one-man faction. He plans to return once he has the time to assist the glorious USBR.
Relocation and beyond - After the Broviets settled down far from their opponents, the faction went into a hiatus of sorts. The faction remained mostly inactive, occasionally logging on to check on things (with the exception of the most dedicated member, Ripvayne, who spent night and day improving the base and gathering materials). A little less than two weeks later, the faction made a last ditch effort to get even with their enemies. Three of the leaders, Artemis360, wlzpaladin, and AshtonArdoin, left to create a brothel company known as IronWhores. The three pimps assisted USBR's long time ally IronLegion to defend against attacks from LosDiablos, Imperium, and the evil vampire Count Zertuk. The undead lord was able to fend off six IronLegion members as well as the three owners of IronWhores. The destruction of most major factions marked the coming apocalypse and world war between everyone. An official statement was made by Artemis360 pronouncing the death of the USBR on January 26th, 2012.
The Broviet AddressThe Broviet Address was the speech given to the members of the USBR by Artemis360 (Broseph Stalin) as a departing message, officially closing the faction. It was given on January 26th, 2012, as follows:
|“|| On this day, the twenty-sixth of the month of January in the year of twenty-twelve, I, Broseph Stalin, AKA Artemis360, proclaim the USBR, the United Socialist Broviet Republic, or the Broviet Union, to no longer be an entity consisting of my or any other member’s presence on this world. Since the days of the first generation, the USBR has prided itself in being the protector of the great Brotherland and a friend to all players. But today I and the other leading members of this great union have called an end to our reign. The time spent with each individual member in this faction has been of great importance to the advancement of the nation and I, as the leader of this closing union, will do my best to address each important member of this great society and explain to them their contributions to the faction, and bid them good luck on their future journeys.
AshtonArdoin, who was among my great advisors, worked tirelessly to endlessly provide the Republic with precious ores and minerals. You helped sustain us in battle, and kept us comfortable in our homes. Wlzpaladin, another fantastic advisor, supplied the Broviet military effort with every bit of intel it needed, traveling the lands far and wide in search of opponents and allies. You also helped raise the farms, which fed the people of the great Brotherland, equally and fairly. Plenti, yet again one of my glorious right hand men, built the highest towers and the highest steeples in all the land. Without you, Plenti, the Brotherland would have never had a place to store our gatherings and loot. You created the very structures that made Brahlingrad what it was. And to the rest of you, who remain unaddressed or no longer a member of this faction… reviewmad, Mr. Sun, Trexmaster, strongnicodemus, Ripvayne, and many many others. You are of equal importance to the union as some of my advisors, and may the lessons you learned during the faction’s reign carry you forward through your adventures. And lastly, to the friends and enemies of the USBR alike… IronLegion, IronHorde, Imperium, and even those who terrorized our civilians, like MOLE… we are gracious of the opportunities for learning you provided us, and the situations you put us into provided the Republic with everything it needed to be what it had become. Now that I have clearly addressed what has made this faction what it is… I’m going to go open me’ emergency crate of vodka and drink myself to death!
–Broseph Stalin, USBR
After the return of Goose's server after a several-month-long hiatus, Artemis360, AshtonArdoin and Reviewmad returned to revive the long-dead USBR. Artemis and Reviewmad settled on a large plain island after days of travelling and soon enough AshtonArdoin regrouped with them. x2yzh9 entered the faction by request, proving to be an ample aid. Ripvayne joined soon after, and Plenti too.
