The Dominion of Rupert's Land, usually referred to as simply Rupertsland, is a constitutional monarchy located in North America, that borders the United States of America to its south, usually referred to as the United States, and the Tsardom of Alaska, usually referred to as Alaska, to its northwest.
It has its roots in the Hudson's Bay Company, which was allowed to keep its mandated territory after the British loss in the First European War. Eventually, the company allowed settlement in its fur-trading territories, due to both government pressure and a decline in the fur trade. Years later, the Company sold off many of its rights to the colonists and the Crown, but even today they own most crown corporations to some degree, as well as large tracts of land. Their influence is also obvious in many names and practices in the country, and they continue to hold some say in the nomination of the Governor even today. The HBC is still the largest company in the nation, and one of the largest in the world, even today.
