Rio is rife with the angry, the disenfranchised... a powder keg of rebellion ready to ignite!
- Kane(src)

Rio de Janeiro ("January River") is a city located in southern Brazil, founded in 1565.

The city was the first where Nod re-emerged after the Second Tiberium War, when in 2034, a small detachment of Nod troops loyal to a reeling but still very much alive Kane sparked a massive rebellion of the populace against the GDI government and a local Nod warlord in the area. This explosive struggle would be later known as The Rio Insurrection and serve as the proving ground for LEGION.[1] The Legendary Insurgent also fought in the uprising, although it is not known what rank he held at the time.[2]
