After the Quebecois Rebellion in 1775, the Republic of Quebec was formed around the same time as the United States. Even though the two nations fought side by side (with French support), diplomatic relations were somewhat frosty until the mid 1800s. During the War of 1812, Quebec declared war on the United States and annexed Maine, and parts of the North West Territories. The USA dropped claims on their former states and diplomatic relations were soon normalised.
During the Red Rebellion in the 1870s, Quebecois, Canadian and US Forces aided in defeating various Communalist insurrections and aided the Romanovs in taking power in Alyeska. At the start of the 20th Century, Quebec had a large influx of Eastern European refugees from the various Communalist states who were smuggled out through Austria-Hungary and the Netherlands.
GovernmentQuebec is a Federal Republic with a bicameral legislature. The current ruling political party (circa 2015) is the Liberal Party. The Prime Minister, as opposed to a President, holds similar powers to the US President and British Prime Minister.
After gaining Independence from the United Kingdom in the 1770s, the French and Americans were the first to recognize the newly formed nation, Britain only officially recognized Quebecois sovereignty a year after Quebec was formed. After Canadian Confederation in 1867, Canada recognized Quebec. Today, Quebec is the a member of the British Imperial Commonwealth, Union of Nations, and the Francophone Community.
