History

Borealia was known as "British North America" until the early 1830s. The addition of much land following the War of Southern Aggression led to difficulty in terms of managing such a large, as yet non-unified, entity.

The solution adopted after much discussion was to incorporate all the various colonies and dependencies into a single kingdom modeled along the lines of Great Britain itself. The Head of State was to be the currently reigning British monarch in perpetuity.

Geography

Borealia is the largest country in the Americas and occupies much of North America, from one ocean to the other. The Kingdom is composed of the following sub-national entities:

Provinces

The following are governed by an elected bicameral house under the direction of a vice-regal Lieutenant Governor.

Territories
