History[edit | edit source]
France called the colony it carved out in this region Oubangui-Chari, as most of the territory was located in the Ubangi and Chari river basins. It became a semi-autonomous territory of the French Community in 1958 and then an independent nation on 13 August 1960, taking its present name. For over three decades after independence, the CAR was ruled by presidents or an emperor, who either were unelected or who took power by force. Local discontent with this system was eventually reinforced by international pressure, following the end of the Cold War. The first multi-party democratic elections in the CAR were held in 1993, with the aid of resources provided by the country's donors and help from the United Nations.
First Tiberium War[edit | edit source]
In the early middle of the First Tiberium War, the Prime Minister for the Republic of Central Africa became aware of a Brotherhood of Nod in Africa striking towards the country. Their testimony led the Global Defense Initiative to establish a base only once and a Helipad came with one of the new ORCA Assault Craft planes. Seth and Kane sent their Nod Commander to the area and stole the unit from its Helipad after infiltrating the GDI base. The plane was taken and destroyed Bangassou's village before the GDI Commander at Bangassou retreated to Zaire to help his colleagues. M.O. Morelli, the pilot for GDI's air power said the ORCA Assault Craft was gone and says that Nod could have taken it as the Central African Republic's government expelled all GDI forces from the area causing French President Honore Prichard to say that Nod has taken the Republic of Central Africa along with the explusion of peacekeeping forces withdrawn in the area.
