James Earl "Jimmy" Carter (born 1924) is a retired Confederate politician who served as President of the Confederate States from 1982 until 1988, when he was term-limited from office. He previously served two terms as Governor of Georgia and was a member of the Georgia State Senate, and was a peanut farmer. He served in the Confederate Navy in World War Two as a volunteer fighting in the Atlantic Ocean aboard a submarine.
Carter was the first Progressive elected President in twelve years and set out to embark on a largely populist, center-left economic agenda upon his election, putting in place universal health care grants from Richmond to the states that became known as "JimmyCare," ending mandatory pay cuts for federal strikers and reforming state industries, including the Bank of the Confederate States, to make the federal government more secure. He also took on then-taboo subjects such as free trade, which he advocated with both Mexico and the United States, and sought to improve US-Confederate relations, becoming the first President since Lyndon B. Johnson in 1966 to invite a US President to Richmond when he hosted US President George Bush in 1987.
Carter was succeeded by Bruce Babbitt and was present at the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1990.
