The Military of the ASA is composed of members who once served with the Army. The ASA formed a Air Force but no navy since the country is currently landlocked. In 1939 after ASA took over Oregon they formed AS Navy and the ASMC.
Right now the ASA is making overtures to the FUS for a joint military alliance and a trade agreement. The allies have made some promises of future peace and stability with the mighty US. They have made hints to reunification in years to come.
Right now the ASA does have some heavy indsutry and building more factories. Right now they are heading for free market economy. With a round of competitive taxes. As far as agriculture they need to develop more farms and that means find ways to make the desert into good farmland.
