The Commonwealth of America is a federation of 29 provinces in North America which were formerly part of the British Empire. It was created on the 4th July 1802 with the passage of the American Confederation Act by the Parliament of Great Britain and Ireland in order to better manage the affairs of the colonies. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries it gradually progressed towards independence as more and more powers were entrusted to the Commonwealth Government, until the America Act of 1982 finally severed the last constitutional ties between it and the mother country.

Today, America is a constitutional monarchy which shares its head of state with the United Kingdom and the other members of the Commonwealth of Nations. It is a parliamentary democracy under the Westminster system, and its economy is one of the largest in the world thanks to its abundant natural resources, its trade networks, and its large population.

Originally called the Commonwealth of New England, its name was changed in 1845 to reflect the addition of colonies outside of the New England region. The original seven provinces, as they existed in 1802, in order from north to south, were:

  • Nova Scotia
  • New Hampshire
  • Vermont
  • Massachusetts Bay
  • Rhode Island and Providence Plantations
  • Connecticut
  • New York

Today, they are joined by:

  • Newfoundland
  • Ungava
  • Columbia
  • Quebec
  • Manitoba
  • Saskatchewan
  • Athabasca
  • Charlotina
  • New Jersey
  • Pennsylvania
  • Delaware
  • Maryland
  • Vandalia
  • Virginia
  • Indiana
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • Bermuda
  • Georgia
  • West Florida
  • East Florida
  • Bahamas
