That depends upon how successful you are, and whether you're a citizen or a foreign national.

If you're a citizen and you fail, you could be charged with treason and imprisoned for life or executed. If you're a foreign national, you would receive a life sentence or the death penalty on other charges.

If you succeed, you would probably create anarchy and screw up what's left of the economy, among other things.
