Flag of the Confederate States of America (1865)

National flag of the CSA

The Confederate States of America (or CSA, the Southern Confederacy, the South, or Dixieland) is a Federal Republic located in the North American continent. The CSA was originally made up of 11 southern US states that seceded after the election of Republican President Abraham Lincoln. At first, the CSA was discarded as traitors, racists and troublemakers. But after they achieved their independence, they became a world super-power. (please do NOT edit.

History

On December 20th 1860, South Carolina seceded from the United States Union. After this "show of bravery", several other southern states seceded. (In order, South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, and finally Tennessee.) Uniting under one flag after their victory in the Battle of Fort Sumter, the CSA chose Mississippi Senator Jefferson Davis as their first President.

The CS and the US dueled for a good two years before the CS gained the upper hand over the United States. At the Battle of Antietam in 1862, the CSA gained the upper hand when Colonel James Garcea led a charge over the river against the US forces on the other side. Although this was an incredibly reckless maneuver, Garcea charged straight through the Union lines and into the cannons. Without artillery, the Union soon found themselves at the end of Confederate bayonets. Working quickly against the Union, the CSA bombed Washington D.C., and eventually, after a week of battle, captured the capital. Backed financially by Great Britain, the French Empire and Prussia, the CS became a recognized nation. Eventually the Union, now presided by General William Sherman, offered peace with the CSA. Davis, and his cabinet, accepted, the terms being they get to keep their independence from the USA. With no other way out, the Union agreed and the CSA was born. Davis immediately made the necessary arrangements for peace time governance. He made the CS dollar the stable currency, withdrew from the US, requested an embassy in London, Paris and Berlin, and occupied the western CS claims (Utah Territory, Arizona Territory, Indian Territory, and southern California). With a large slice of western territory, the CS became respected in the eyes of the world. Jefferson Davis unveiled the seal of the Confederate States. The seal was a large circle, with the date of its original creation.

Around the center's outside was an agricultural Eden, and in its center was George Washington. Washington, a Virginian and slave holder, would become the CS's Uncle Sam.

The National Anthem of the CSA is, since 1864, the Bonnie Blue Flag. The verses of the song have been altered and new ones put in to tell the story of the Confederacy's story. For example, originally the song told the story of the south's noble secession. As of 2005 (the most recent addition to the song) the anthem gives reference to the War with Mexico, the South American expansion, WW-I, WW-II, and the Falklands War.


Early Independence

In mid 1865, a victorious CSA gained its independence. The three European powers, The Great British Empire, the French Empire, and Prussia, gave the CS "good luck" stipends. Britain and France each gave the CS $5.000.000, and Prussia gave them $2.000.000. With these funds, the CS was able to rebuild in a quick two year period. With the country fully operational by 1866, the CS began exporting cotton to Europe. The CS merchant navy would sail to England, France, Prussia, back to England, then down to Gambia to purchase newly captured Negroes from their expeditionary force. Soon, the CS found that they could not work with such a small parcel of land. The western territories became states, and soon Confederate leaders began to drool over Mexico and the Caribbean. With the election of their second president, Lansford Hastings, the CSA began an institionalised border occupation of Mexico. With a large amount of conscripts and slave

forces the CS Army invaded and occupied the two northern provinces, Chihuahua and Sonora, of the Empire of Mexico. After a three month battle with Mexico, Generalissimo Ignacio Zaragoza surrendered to Major Gen. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. Suddenly, Mexico was a territory of the CSA. Although the Mexicans were never subjected to "straight" slavery, they were tricked by the CS's business developers into signing the holding papers, which meant they were not paid for work, and were forced to live in the "crew quarters" of the business. At the end of May, 1867, Mexico was occupied by the CSA. Mexico became a landscape of massive slave based plantations, growing cotton, tobaco, and sugar. With these exports to Europe, the CS soon rose from its financial trouble. With the stroke of a pen, President Hastings annexes Central America. They did the same with Mexico, "employing" the natives to work on plantations.
