The states that make up the Republic of New England declared independence from the United States in the aftermath of the Treaty of Ghent that marked the end of the War of 1812. This declaration led to a short war between the New England states and the US Government which was won by New England in 1816. The first country to recognize the independence of the RNE was Great Britain.


History

Politics

Government

The national assembly or Congress of the Republic of New England is divided into two houses, the lower house or House of Representatives and the upper house or Senate. The number of Representatives from each state is decided in proportion to the population of the state and can be altered after each national census. Each state (plus the Federal Capital) is entitled to five Senators. All Representatives and Senators have to stand for re-election every four years. The President is directly elected by the population also every four years. The elections are staggered so Congressional and Presidential elections so they don't take place in the same year. Say for example a Presidential election took place in 2016, the Congressional elections would take place in 2018.

A similar process takes place in the legislative assemblies of each state.


List of Presidents

Subdivisions

The Republic is divided into 11 states and one Federal Capital (New York City and Long Island). Each state is subdivided into counties apart from the Federal Capital which is divided into boroughs). There are 200 counties and seven boroughs.

Each state has its own legislative assembly and elected head of government. These individuals have the title of Governor with the exception of the Federal Capital whose elected head has the title of Mayor.
