The Hamiltonian State of New York, more commonly referred to as the State of New York or simply New York is a theocratic state formed by the Knights of Hamilton, a Unionist organization dedicated to converting the citizens of upstate New York to Unionism. Founded in 1935 in Albany, New York quickly expanded across what was once upstate New York to claim lands as far west as Canandaigua and as far north as Glens Falls, New York is a major force in the post-Chaos region.



See: History of Upstate New York 


Following the Great Chaos, most of New York was in chaos, however the upstate portion fared better than the downstate portion due to the high percentage of a rural population. The rural population that inhabited Upstate New York would play a pivotal role in reestablishing civilization in New York. Things began to stabilize when in 1903, an armed band of raiders from the south marched into the depopulated ruins of Syracuse and proclaimed it the capital of a "New Empire State" that would "eclipse the old". The New Empire State, however only controlled the area directly surrounding Syracuse, though they did manage to conquer the people of Fulton and Oswego by 1912 and the State had a port on Lake Ontario.
