The Confederate States of America is a nation made up of 20 federated states. Because of this shared sovereignty, a Confederate citizen is both a citizen of the federal entity and of his or her state of domicile. State citizenship is flexible and no government approval is required to move between states (with the exception of convicts on parole).
Out of the 20 states, only thirteen were originally states of the United States, two were former territories of the US, while the remaining were never part of the US (either being former states of Mexico or former Spanish colonies).
List of states
- ↑ As part of the Treaty of London, Missouri was required to relinquish all counties north of the Missouri River to the United States.
- ↑ 2.0 2.1 Because Texas was one of the founding states of the CSA, the Confederate Congress was more lenient on Texas and its "claims" in surrounding regions. Because of which, Texas' claim on Greer County would become official. With the Missouri Compromise line no longer relevant for the CS, the Neutral Strip would also be reintegrated into Texas. The Indian Territory showed no problem with the border changes, on the condition that they gain statehood.
- ↑ Sierra Madre (formerly called Rio Grande) includes the Mexican states of Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas
- ↑ The Confederate State of Virginia (just as in OTL) does not include the western counties that make up the Union state of West Virginia. Virginia also does not include Accomack County and Northampton County, while the independent city of Richmond is its own federal district within the CSA.
