A republic descended from a Swedish colony in North America's Great Lakes region, with a government modeled on the United States. The Confederated Republic of Svensland (CRS) is unique among North American nations in its history of peaceful collaboration with the Native American population. The Kickapoo and Meskvaki tribes, particularly, have been integrated into the Republic: not only is there a state named after each of these tribes, but their languages (for which Swedish and Finnish settlers had developed writing systems early in the 1730's) are the official languages of administration in those states. The CRS has been a political (and, sometimes, military) champion of the Native Americans throughout its existence.


Like the United States of America, Svensland consists of multiple small states. These states are not derived from individual colonies, as the states of the USA are, but were created upon formation of the republic for administrative convenience and preservation of separate cultural groups.
