The Confederate States of America, known also as The Confederacy, the Confederate States and the CSA is a Federal Constitutional Republic composed of 10 states in the south-eastern part of the North American continent. The CSA is surrounded by the United States to the north, Texas to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Caribbean to the south. The island of Cuba is only part of the CSA that is not directly linked to the rest of the nation.
Established by slave-owning plantation owners, states rights activists and disgruntled financiers over perceived Northern dominance over the southern states of the United States, the Confederacy gained it's independence in the Second American War, and remained an opponent to the US and it's allies for the next 80 some years. In 1946, with the conclusion of the Third Global War where the National Socialist Liberty Party of the Confederacy, lead by Sam Rayburn, invaded the US, the ultimately victorious US and it's allies in North and South America divided the Confederacy into a the Democratic Confederate States or "North CSA" and the Gulf States Confederation or "South CSA." It wouldn't be until after the end of the Tri-Powers Conflict (later the Dual Powers Conflict after the Brazilian dictatorship collapsed that both halves of the Confederacy would be re-united in 1997.
While a primarily agriculture based economy for most of it's history, the Confederacy has since the Third Global War and the division between the South CSA and the North CSA developed a rapidly expanding industrial and service based economy. The Northern states of the reunified CSA is still the richest part of the nation, but the southern states of the former South CSA have made remarkable strides since 1997, but is still economically behind the USA.
Established only in 1858, the areas that would become the Confederate States of America had a long history of independence and resentment against their northern neighbors. During the American Revolution, a strong movement by settlers in the south maintained a revolt against the British, tying down large numbers of redcoats. After the victory of the Thirteen Colonies, the southern colonies joined the new United States of America. In the 1800s, with a rise in the demand of many of the agricultural goods of the south, namely cotton and tobacco, slavery became even more deeply entrenched in the plantations of the south. A wealthy planter and financier class became established, forming an aristocracy in all but name. The rest of the free, white populace, mostly poor farmers on land that plantations were unsuited for and workers in the towns and cities, formed a large, broad, but not totally wealthy or fully educated middle class. The lowest class was the African American slaves, forced to work on the plantations and farms of their owners and brutally treated.
Many Southern leaders became powerful politicians in the United States, especially in the Senate where the southern states was more or less equal to the North.
