New Songhai, officially the Free State of New Songhai, is an island nation located in the Corner Islands, situated in the Atlantic Ocean. Originally discovered and settled by the Norse, the island nation was formed by Songhai sailors during their greatest extent of their empire. In times of American slavery, the island was sanctuary to freed and runaway slaves. Unfortunately, despite its idealistic aims, it became a byword for corruption and poverty. It established relations with Britain, which caused an American blockade during the War of 1812-1814.

The island was annexed to the British Corner Islands, with little opposition. However, many of African (especially Songhai) descent were treated as second-class citizens in their own island, which angered many inhabitants. An independence movement took place, resulting in the independence of the nation the next year.
